After high speed chase tops 100 mph



Bank robbery suspect captured


The suspect in a Tuesday
morning bank robbery in Mayo
was captured in Taylor County
following a chase that reached
speeds of 100 miles per hour on
Beach Road.
Details remained sketchy as
of presstime Tuesday afternoon
as agents from Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) worked
the scene one-half mile down
Beach Road from the
intersection at U.S. 19.
More than a dozen law
enforcement officers from both
Taylor and Dixie counties were
involved in the chase, which
began around 12:30 p.m. Local.
officers had received a BOLO
(be on the look out) description
of the suspect--described as a
white male driving a silver
four-door Pontiac--shortly
before noon. He was wanted in
connection with the robbery of
Lafayette State Bank in Mayo.
Dixie County deputies
spotted the suspect in Jena,
alerted local authorities and


Trial date

nears for

attempted

murder case
A Georgia man may be
facing a lengthy prison
sentence if convicted of
attempted murder charges tied
to a shooting incident here in
May of this year.
Terrance L. Sims Jr., 34, is
expected to go to trial in early
December tjoor the May 9
shooting of a 24-year-old Perry
man.
A former resident of Brooks
County, Ga., Sims had been out
of prison about six months
when he allegedly opened fire
into a crowd of young adults
gathered in front of Blalock's
store on Warner Avenue.
He fled the scene and was
apprehended four days later in
Quitman, Ga. In addition to the
attempted murder charge, Sims
was also charged with
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon. (He was
released from the Georgia
Department of Corrections in
November 2008.) His criminal
record includes drugs and
weapons charges. According to
police, he had only been in
Perry for about a month prior
to the shooting and was
allegedly involved in illegal
drug sales.
His case tops the docket
expected to be announced for a
Dec. 7 trial date.


began to follow his vehicle
through the Steinhatchee area.
Officers initiated their blue
lights near Fish Creek on C.R.
361 (Beach Road).
Law enforcement officers
from Taylor and Dixie counties
pursued the suspect from
Steinhatchee along Beach
Road. The chase reached


speeds in excess of 100 mph at
times, with the suspect
successfully evading spike
strips twice and navigating
through Dead Man's Curve.
At one point, an officer
reported over the radio
the suspect had struck his
vehicle.
As the suspect approached


the intersection of Beach Road
and U.S. 19, he hit a spike strip.
He turned his vehicle around
and began heading south on
Beach Road before abandoning
it about a half mile later.
Officers pursued the suspect
into the woods east of Beach
Road and apprehended him
within minutes.


According to reports, the
suspect stole the vehicle from
the scene of the robbery.
The suspect's identity had not
been released as of presstime
and local officials said they
could not comment on the case,
referring all questions to the
FDLE, which is leading the
investigation.


Law enforcement officers from Taylor and Dixie counties gather around a vehicle involved in a high-speed
chase Tuesday afternoon. The driver was wanted in connection with a bank robbery in Mayo which occurred that
morning. Due to the multi-jurisdictional nature of the case, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is
handling the investigation. Taylor County Sheriff's L.B. "Bummy" Williams was on the scene, along with
officers from the Perry Police Department, Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Highway Patrol and
the Dixie County Sheriff's Office.


Wiggins elected county chairman


Taylor County
Commissioner Mark Wiggins
is now commission chairman,
following the board's
reorganization last week.
The commission held its
annual reorganization at the
start of its regular board
meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 17,
with former chairman Rudolph
Parker nominating Wiggins to
succeed him.
No one else was nominated
for the position and the board
unanimously elected Wiggin,
who had served as vice chair
during the previous year.
Commissioner Malcolm
Page then nominated
Commissioner Lonnie Houck
to the position of vice chair,
and he too was elected
unanimously.
Once the election concluded,
the commission voted to retain
both County Administrator


Michael DeGuire has spent the past six months and
more than 300 hours building a helicopter.


Jack Brown and County
Attorney Conrad Bishop.
The board also decided to
keep its meeting schedule the
same for the next year, with
regular meetings on the first


Monday and third Tuesday of
each month, beginning at
6 p.m. at the Courthouse Annex
on Green Street.
Wiggins held off making
committee appointments,


instead electing to discuss
them further at the board's
workshop next week and
making a final decision at the
regular meeting set for
Tuesday, Dec. 15.


Unemployment falls in Taylor


Taylor County's
unemployment rate fell in
October while Florida's rate
continued to rise, remaining
above 11 percent for the second
month.
The county's rate was 10.5
percent, down from
September's revised rate of
10.8 percent.
The rate represented 968
unemployed out of a labor
force of 9,216, according to
numbers released by the


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
For years, Michael DeGuire
has had a passion for flying,
especially helicopters.
Although his only piloting
experience dates back to his
ROTC days at Xavier
University, the spark has never
left him.
Next week he will be
heading to Alabama to become
certified as a helicopter pilot,
realizing his dream at last. He
won't be alone, however, for
he's bringing his helicopter
with him for its own
certification along with some
final upgrades. The helicopter
is what he's spent the last six
months building in the
workshop next to his home.
"I've always wanted to fly,"
DeGuire said. "If you see a
plane, you'll see me looking up
at it."
DeGuire's helicopter was
born as a kit, much like the


Agency for Workforce
Innovation (AWI) Friday.
During the same month a
year ago, the rate was 7.1
percent.
The number of initial
unemployment claims filed in
Taylor County was 103, the
lowest level since March and
down from September's 110
claims.
Taylor had the 36th highest
unemployment out of Florida's
67 counties. For the month, 40


home-built fixed-wing aircraft
that are continuing to increase
in popularity around the world.
According to the Experimental
Aircraft Association, the total
number of registered homebuilt
aircraft is increasing by about
1,000 per year.
DeGuire's love of flying,
however, began long before he
had even built the workshop
that now houses his helicopter.
As a ROTC cadet at Xavier
in the 1960s, DeGuire had 35
hours flying in fixed-wing
aircraft. He was offered a
chance to go to flight school,
but marriage came first.
DeGuire acquired his passion
for helicopters in particular in
Vietnam, where he served in a
forward artillery unit. Visiting
troops in hostile territory was
part of his duties.
"You could take a jeep, but it
wasn't safe," DeGuire said.
Instead, he took to the air in
helicopters.


counties reported rates 10.0
percent or above.
Among Taylor's neighbors,
Dixie and Madison counties
had higher unemployment rates
with 12.1 and 11.8 percent;
Dixie's rate fell for the month
while Madison remained the
same. After Taylor, Jefferson
County followed with 8.8 and
Lafayette County with 7.2,
both increased compared to

"If you've ever flown in a
helicopter, you'll notice a
significant difference from a
fixed-wing aircraft."
With the engine behind the
cockpit, the pilot is allowed an
almost unobstructed view to
the front and sides, he
explained.
"I've always been enthralled
with helicopters."
With retirement approaching,
DeGuire became "excited"
again about helicopters in 2007
when he went to a national
helicopter show in Orlando.
There he found a company
which manufactures kits and he
spent two hours talking to its
representative.
Before he could consider
buying a kit, DeGuire knew he
would need a place to build it.
So his workshop was
constructed next to his home.
He also had to be medically

Setting the scene for your
holiday event doesn't have to
take a lot of money or effort.
All it really needs is a little
imagination and some items
you probably have around the
house.
Get started by first picking a
theme. Go with something
close to your heart or a theme
that inspires you. For
Thanksgiving, a harvest
concept is one that often comes
to -mind and it can perfectly
ieomplement*'-the sc6pe of the
holiday. Make a running list of
items that will fit with the


harvest theme: Gourds, acorns,
pine cones, corn cobs, and
other outdoor finds are
appropriate. They can also
probably be found right in your
yard.
Purchase a tablecloth or look
for alternative materials to
serve as one. An inexpensive
piece of burlap cut, leaving the
fraying ends can impart an
earthy feel to the table.
For an eye-catching
centerpiece, use two vases, one
larger than the other so that the
smaller vase can fit inside the
larger one. Fill the smaller vase

I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what's right.
Every person that has known her sees this light within her soul
I know that in this whole great world, she has a special role.
She's helpful and considerate to everyone she knows
This light in her shines brighter as my angel grows.
I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel's face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.
When God entrusts to you an angel, who has left her wings for you
Encircle her with love with everything you do.
Let her know God made her, and that He trusts you with her care
I thank him for my angel, and ask for him to always keep
A watchful eye and hand to protect her from this world.
Protect my little angel; protect my baby girl.
Happy 18th Birthday Mama loves you

cleared to get a pilot's license,
which could have ended this
story in the first chapter. The
clearance arrived as well.
It wasn't the end of his
worries, though.
While kit helicopters cost
significantly less than the
$250,000 to $300,000 a
comparable commercially-built
model would, it was still just
beyond the amount he felt he
could afford.
Then, as it often happens,
DeGuire received a bit of luck
from an unlikely source: the
History Channel.
"I was watching the History
Channel and they had a
program about the 10 coolest
gadgets," he said.
Number two on the list was a
homebuilt helicopter from
RotorWay International.
Another trip to a regional fly-
in put DeGuire in contact with
an Alabama-based company,
with which he tried to solve the
"price problems."
"We looked into the
possibility of buying an already


built one, then this one went on
sale," he said.
"This one" was a 2005 model
Exec 162F from RotorWay.
"A guy purchased it in South
Florida," he said. "He worked
on it for awhile and lost
interest. He sold it to another
guy who worked on it for
awhile and lost interest. Then I
bought it."
With a workshop and a
partially completed helicopter,
DeGuire set to work.
"Some of the work was done,
including the engine and the
rotor boom," he said.
The kit arrives in four to five
separate shipments, complete
with construction manuals,
blueprints, photos, diagrams
and a series of DVDs.
This is no model airplane,
however.
In many cases, the kit only
provides the raw materials. For
the hinges, for instance, the
blueprints give the dimensions
along with the locations for
holes and bends. It was up to
DeGuire to make it.
The same went for the doors.
In the case of the door
hinges, it took two tries to get


them right. It was three for the
door themselves.
Still, he says the kits are
made so almost anyone can
build one.
"There's no welding here,"
he said. "Just cutting, drilling
and some soldering."
He did need to buy a large
band saw and a drill press.
Six months and about 300
man-hours later, the helicopter
is almost complete. It sports its
registration number--N68XU--
marking the year he graduated
from Xavier, and when his
journey to the skies began.
The next step will be to take
it to Alabama, where it will
receive its final touches,
including a few upgrades.
RotorWay no longer sells the
Exec 162F, replacing it with the
A600 Talon. One of the major
differences is the drive shaft
system, which will be replaced
on DeGuire's helicopter in
Alabama.
"I think I got the best of both
worlds," he said, referring to
the two models.
Once complete, the
helicopter will be inspected by
the Federal Aviation


Administration to ensure all
safety equipment has been
installed correctly. Like all kit-
built aircraft, it must be labeled
"experimental."
DeGuire will also get the
training to fly his creation,
which he said will include
about 75 flight hours.
With the fruition of his
dreams only weeks away,
DeGuire expressed a mixed set
of emotions.
"When you have had
something in your heart for so
many years and you get this
close to realization, it excites
you," he said.
He admits, though, that
thoughts of what could go
wrong have been on his mind
as well.
What if he is forced to crash
land on his first flight and
damages his helicopter beyond
repair?
That too would be part of the
experience, he said, but
obviously a part he wants to
avoid.
What will be unavoidable,
however, is that once his
helicopter is complete and at its
new home at Perry-Foley


Airport, he will no longer be
able to walk a few steps from
his front door and see it.
He will be able to take it for
"joy rides" as he calls them,
which is why he wanted it in
the first place.
The Exec 162F has a
maximum speed of 95 mph and
holds 17 gallons of gas.
Consuming about eight and
a half gallons per hour, it has
a flight time about two
hours.
There's room for the pilot and


one passenger, and little else;
the helicopter can carry 525
pounds, people and fuel
included.
DeGuire said he won't be
ready for passengers until he
gets more experience.
His first 40 hours will be
limited to within 25 miles of
the airport. After that, he'll be
free to take it where ever he
wishes, following FAA
regulations of course.
Beyond that, the sky's the'
limit.


DeGuire's helicopter now resides in a workshop he
built next to his home.

a Bulldog first down at the 33.
The play set up Jackson's run
over the right side where he
bounced outside and broke four
tackles down the right sideline
before being hauled down 67
yards later at the one.
Three plays later Grambling
pounded it in for the score to
give the 'Dogs a 14-0 lead
with 23 seconds left in the first
quarter after Ty Crowley's kick
sailed wide left.
Catholic took the ensuing
kickoff and promptly marched
72 yards on just four plays to
narrow the score to 14-7.
Taylor County gave the
dangerous quick-strike Crusader
offense the ball right back after
the kickoff, as Grambling was
picked off at the Bulldog 40 on
the next play from scrimmage.
Just three plays later the
Crusaders scored on a 23-yard
shovel pass to tie the score at 14
with 10:42 left in the half.
Wentworth came back in at
QB, completing an 18-yard pass
to Chad Hill and a seven-yarder
to Jackson before the drive
floundered at the Crusader 41.
Crowley, the Bulldogs'
starting QB all season who had
to sit out due to a hand injury, hit
a 37-yard punt that was downed
at the Catholic 4-yard line.
The Bulldog defense, aided
by a tackle for loss by Jabahri
Bishop and a 14-yard sack by
Woods, forced Catholic to punt,
but TCHS could do little with
the ball and Crowley hit a 40-
yard punt that the Crusaders
returned 17 yards to their own
43.
Catholic managed two
first downs before Murphy
and Woods wrestled down a
Crusader runner for a 7-yard
loss.
With time running out in the
half, Catholic nailed a 45-yard
field goal to take a 17-14 lead
into the locker room.
The Crusaders opened the
second half with a 53-yard
pass play and three plays later
expanded their lead to 24-14.
But the 'Dogs came right back



Girls bi


to score after Woods recovered
an attempted onsides kick at the
TCHS 40.
Key plays on the 60-yard drive
included Grambling completing
two passes to King for 11 and
14 yards and another one to
Strawter for 18 yards. Jackson
scampered 14 yards with a pitch
around the right side. Grambling
went the final yard for the score
and with Crowley's kick, the
'Dogs trailed 24-21 with 5:50
left in the third quarter.
The Bulldogs attempted
an onsides kick, but Catholic
recovered and promptly scored
following a 33-yard pass play
and a 20-yard draw.
With 4:05 left in the third, the
Crusaders led 31-21.
The Bulldogs put the ball in
play on their own 19 following
the kickoff and Jackson took a
handoff on the left side and ran
28 yards to near midfield.
Taylor County got one first
down before Grambling hit
King in stride on a 25-yard post
pattern to give the 'Dogs a first
down at the Crusader 15.
Two plays later Grambling
broke away for 8 yards, but the
ball came loose at the 6 and
Catholic recovered.
A 72-yard run two plays later
had the Crusaders threatening
again, and they got to the one
yard line as time expired in the
third period.
Big defensive plays by
Jesse Braswell, Calvin Bass,
Bishop and Murphy pushed the
Crusaders back to the three, but
a quarterback draw caught the
'Dogs off guard and Pensacola
scored to go up 38-21.
A 25-yard kickoff return by
James Houston put the 'Dogs in
good field position at their own
36, and a good drive that got as
deep as the Crusader 17 ended
with a Wentworth interception
at the goal line.
Key plays on the drive
included Wentworth's 11-yard
pass to King and a 27-yarder to
Strawter.
The Bulldog defense then put
together one of their best stops


asketba


of the night. Starting at their,
own 7, Pensacola managed one
first down before Jalen Jackson
made a brutal stop at ihe l 11
and Calvin Bass and Bishop'
combined for a tackle of no gain
near the 20.
A third down pass was
slapped down by Jonathan
Smith forcing Catholic to punt
from their on 19.
An all-out rush of the punter
by Bishop, George Gant, Woods
and others resulted in a blocked
punt by Woods and Murphy
scooped it up at the 2 and,
scored. Jackson ran in the two-i
point play and the 'Dogs werei -
back in it trailing 38-29 ,.- '-1
6:06 left in the game.
Crowley's perfectly-executed!
onsides kick was recovered1
by Isaac Nelson, giving thel
'Dogs a first down at the 47.
But Grambling's first pass
from center was picked off by)

Justice system needs to


combat the 'real problem'


Dear Editor:
I would like to comment on
the letter I saw in the Oct. 28
paper. I have written a similar
response as you did without
the plan you suggested and I
would like to say thank you for
speaking up on behalf of felons
and receiving second chances.
I am one of those felons
and currently reside in the
Taylor County Jail. I have
been sentenced to prison on
four different occasions and
have been to jail 38 times.
I have a very long criminal
record, but all the crimes I
committed were to obtain
drugs. In all the sentences, I
never once was given or offered
drug rehab when that was the
initial problem. The last time,
I explained that what I have is
a drug problem, not a criminal
problem, and I in turn begged
for rehab. I told the judge that
if we could fix the real problem,
which was drugs, then the other
criminal activities would cease.


He granted me that and I have
stayed clean since my release
in April 2008. During this time
I lost a sister in a car wreck
three months ago and one was
left disabled who needs me and
I have no choice but to change
my ways.
I was eventually kicked out
of rehab because another client
has a picture of me on their
cell phone so that violated me.
I turned myself in and waited
for three weeks without running
to do the right thing. Even
though for once in my life I did
everything like a law-abiding
citizen, I'm being held without
bond and the judge aware of
my family crisis and the three
children who survived my
sister's death. Where is the pat
on the back for doing good?
Society is quick to reward me
when I've done something bad,
but what do I get for doing
good? It makes me wonder why
I didn't run like I always do.
I'm telling you why because I


am not the things I've done and
I just want to get all this behind
me and go where my family
needs me.
The probation officers have
attitudes and are excited to lock
you up and the rehabs have no
problem putting you out. I was
there because I have a thinking
problem. They are 'supposed
to keep me for six months and
teach me how to think like
normal people. Instead I let
someone take my picture and
because I wasn't "thinking"
they kicked me out and I am
back where I should never be,
but because with the birth of my
grandbaby Dristyn, the death of
my sister Michelle and the help
of "The Serenity House," I have
changed!
I sit here and I look around
at all the other female inmates
and I see no hope or even life
in their eyes. It breaks my
heart, they are good people

Letters to the Editor


Grant funding for veterans park flame?


I'LL HAVE THE LEFT WING, PLEASE."


Dear Editor:
Thanks to Sgt. Ricketson and
Deputy Woods for their efforts
in removing another meth lab
from amongst us. Also I would
like to thank the Drug Task
Force for protecting the ladies
in pink, but the M-16 did clash
a bit with the pink tee shirt.
On the serious side, thanks to
these professionals for putting
your life on the line every day
you go to work to make our
community a safer place for us
to live.
Thanks for removing the
>) Veterans Memorial Park
permanent flame. No disrespect
to the artist's sculpturing skills
but that's not a representation
of a flame, a large bouquet of
flowers maybe but not flames.


Who's gonna pay for it, who
ever accepted it and had it
mounted at the Memorial Park?
Oh, that's right, it's already paid
for so how about mounting it on
a post at the court house as it's
another Taylor County trophy.
Interesting how "grant money"
can be obtained for palm trees,
"turn lanes to nowhere" on
South 19, sidewalk extensions,
a guard rail, railroad extensions,
a recreation park and gosh only
knows what else but we cannot
get a grant to pay for gas for an
eternal flame to pay respect to
our veterans. Maybe we could
get a grant to put all the names
on the walls at the Veterans Park
instead of our veterans having
to pay themselves to have their
names added.


Prices draw complaints


Dear Editor:
The prices at the Perry
Goodwill are ridiculous. You
need to change your name to
Macy's or Tiffany's.
I know that prices don't come
from Tallahassee. That's your
answer to your high prices.
You are comparing prices off of
eBay.
This is not a complaint against
the employees, unless you
are the ones hiking the prices
so high that you have taken
the "good" out of Goodwill.
Goodwill is supposed to be


a company where the less
fortunate can be able to afford
clothing, shoes, etc., but it
is pretty sad when you can
purchase items new cheaper at
local department stores.
I have seen torn-up items in
the Perry Goodwill priced at
very high prices. Something
needs to be changed about this
situation.
Don't try to complain, you are
wasting your time. A petition
maybe?
Thank you,
Mark Lee Winnie

Great to see on the news the
other week the "City of Perry"
is expanding the Veterans
Memorial Park with two more
monuments. Way back when, I
had to write a check for $100 to
get my name on it. Did we get
a grant to expand it or did the
news forget to clarify who's still
footing the bill?
I would think the gas company
could pony up and take it as a
tax write-off as a donation to
charity.
Have you seen the TV
commercial - Where they
advertise that if )ou owe the
IRS millions, they can negotiate
it down to only thousands?
Those millions they are able
to negotiate away come out of
your and my pockets because
someone's gonna make it up
somewhere.
Pay your share; you made the
millions so pay up like the rest
of us working stiffs have to!
Support our troops. God bless
America and in God we trust.
Thanks,
William P. Palmer

Veterans in class

not recognized?
Dear Editor:
It is an absolute shame
that in the greatest nation in
recorded history, our public
school system in Taylor County
does not recognize those that
made and continue to keep
this the greatest, most blessed
democratic society this world
has known.
No, I am not a veteran due
to knee injuries as a teen.
However, several family
members including my father
are. I thank God for all of those
who served and have paid the
ultimate price that we may
enjoy, live and worship in the
greatest country in history.
We have several veterans
in our class and they aren't
even thought enough of by the
Taylor County School Board to
be recognized.
I pray that those who made
this decision can sleep soundly.
Those who the Taylor County
School Board has forgotten
have seen to it that they can.
I'm confident that the Taylor
County School Board members
will be remembered at election
time. God bless America and
God bless our veterans.

Tora No Maki Challenge draws athletes from eight dojos


The Perry Dojo recently held
the Tora No Maki Challenge
karate tournament at Forest
Capital Hall with participants
from eight dojos from around
the region.
The tournament featured four
levels of competition for various
age groups in three different
martial art forms.
In Kihon competition,
participants compete in pairs
until there is one standing.
Kata competition is traditional
karate open hand forms and
Kumite competition is sparring
with minimum protective
gear.
Karate Clubs came from
eight different dojos, including
Perry, Tampa, Alachua,
Flemling Island, Crawfordville,
Gainesville and Panama City.
Perry Dojo was well
represented when the awards
were announced with the
highest number of medals and
the largest percentage of gold
medals.


According to Perry Dojo sensi
and tournament director Jimmy
Bowden, 12 local businesses
helped sponsor the event.
"In Japanese, Tora No Maki
is the official written document
of an art," Bowden said. "Tora
also means tiger and the name
of a mountain in Japan because,
from above, the mountain
resembles a tiger's tail."
Local participants and their
awards were:
* Brendan Hanes, silver in
Kihon, gold in Kata and bronze
in Kumite;
* Owen Drawdy, silver in
Kihon and Kata;
* Caitlyn Gray, bronze in Kata

consumed by a drug and instead
of helping them, we're letting
murderers get away in order to
bust dope dealers and users. It's
crazy.
Someone needs to start in
this jail, giving hope to these
beautiful lost women.
I hope to one day come in
here and work with them three
times a week and speak to them
and to schools because if I can
change my life anyone can.

like to join up with anyone
else who is willing and start
on the inside, where the real
reformation can ' take place.
Who better to help them than


someone with my past record?
A lot of those women and young
girls look up to me and the Lord
can use me to reach them. They
need to know they have hope
and not just the streets. They
need to know they have people
like you and the others who
care because, believe it or not,
just having someone to believe
in you can make a world of
difference.
I speak for all inmates when I
say this. Yes we have committed
crimes, but if you're willing to
work with us, we're willing to
"acedpt' the 'help. I ' 1 ' '
Quit putting us in prison
when we have drug problems,
quiet denying us jobs and quit
looking down your noses at us,
because one day it could be your


daughter walking the streets,
your son in jail or your husband
caught with a prostitute and
drugs.
Clean up the real problems:
guns and murder, not petit
theft, VOP and sales charges
or possession charges. Look at
the murders that haven't been
solved in the last seven years.
It's got to start in the jail and
the schools, so if Mr. Henry
Jay III, a citizen, is willing, and
me, an ex-offender is willing
to help, what about all of you
in between? Judges, state
attorneys, probation, businesses
and churches?
I think the gun buy-back is
a great idea and that's coming
from us on the inside.

in common service to others,
being there for those who count
on us to keep them comfortable,
safe and protected.
Big Bend Hospice is proud
to have partnered with the VA
Outpatient Clinic and DVA
to remember and honor our
veterans during a Service of
Remembrance held on Nov. 5.
Every day we lose 1,000
WWII veterans, leaving a hole
in our hearts and in our society's
collective memory.
Likewise family caregivers
are selfless individuals who
give of themselves, sometimes
putting their own lives on
hold, to care for an ill or dying
loved one; they are unsung
heroes. Each day Big Bend
Hospice witnesses the love and
comfort that these sons and
daughters, husbands and wives,
grandparents, grandchildren


and friends give to those who
depend on them for care and
support.
Nationwide more than
50,000,000 people provide care
to a chronically ill, disabled,
aged or dying family member
or friend during any given year.
At Big Bend Hospice we see
firsthand the courage and love
that goes into being a caregiver
24/7 and we continually look
for ways to provide support to
hospice family caregivers and
ease their load and renew their
spirit.
In 2008, almost one and a
half million Americans received
services from hospice. In our
area more than 1.600 families
used Big Bend Hospice services.
Of those seeking our grief
support services, 60 percent
never used our hospice for their
loved one, but we still walk with


them on their grief journey. I am
proud of our staff of more than
300 caring professionals who
work tirelessly to care, educate
and comfort families as they care
for those they love. It is for all
of us, so much more than a job,
it is a privilege and a calling to
do this important work. Please
join me during November and
salute all of these groups as they
do the work that has to be done,
but which sometimes requires
incredible sacrifice.
We are a better community
because we can come together
in support of each other. I
encourage everyone to join me
in thanking these dedicated
individuals for the work they
do.

I nilovol tib ,iAow ar* - ,iwom port ldirn,,


In an image reminiscent of marathoners lining up at the start of
the race, each year stores across the country play host to scores of
shoppers the day after Thanksgiving. Many of those shoppers arriv
long before a store even opens, finding themselves elbow-to-elbow
with similar deal seekers.

Known as Black Friday. the day after Thanksgiving appears to
be bulletproof. Even last year, when the much-maligned national
economy had already started to struggle mightily, shoppers spent
more than $10 billion on Black Friday. This year could prove difficult
to forecast, as the economy has recovered somewhat, though many
families continue to struggle through layoffs.

Adding to that difficulty are the dil(' i ing points of view with respect
to Black Friday. For every success story of a plasma TV purchased for
50 percent off, there seem to be a dozen or so more stories about the
individual who waits outside a store in the cold, only to find a popular
item is sold out by the time he or she gets indoors. In other words,
predicting the success of Black Friday for retailers is just as difficult
as predicting the success of Black Friday for individuals: sometimes
both get what they want, sometimes neither does.

But as 2008 can attest, shoppers are still going to hit the stores this
Black Friday, and they're probably going to do so in droves. For those
braving the mayhem that often characterizes Black Friday, consider
the following survival tips.

* Do your research. Perhaps no items are more steeply marked
down in price come Black Friday than big ticket electronics, most
notably plasma, LCD or DLP televisions. Unfortunately, not all such
appliances are equal. Getting a good price is not necessarily the same


thing asgetting a good deal. This is where research needs to play a
role. Research big ticket items, including televisions. Retailer Web
sites often have customer ratings sections where customers can rate
specific appliances. If ratings are consistently poor or conunenters
routinely cite problems, then steer clear of those items, no matter how
low the price might be.

* Get up early. Some deals are exactly what they seem. While it can
be difficult to get out of bed in the middle of the night to go holiday
shopping, it will be easy to go back to sleep when arriving home with
exactly what you wanted and knowing you got the best deal possible.
Many stores open at 4 or 5 a.m. on Black Friday. While waking up
that early seems like a tall order, particularly after eating so much
turkey the day before, there's no law against napping on Black Friday,
and if you get what you came for. you could be back in bed in a
couple of hours.

* Don't stress out. Black Friday isn't easy for anyone (just ask the
nation's retail employees). Chances are, even the most veteran Black
Friday shopper is going to feel stressed out at one point or another.
If the stress becomes too much, simply go home. This year figures
to have lots of good deals throughout the holiday season, as retailers
plan on families spending less thanks to the economy. That means
the deals on Black Friday, while they might be the best of the season,
probably won't be significantly better than something you might find
a few weeks later.

* Buy a newspaper! At Thanksgiving papers are packed with
coupons offering Black Friday discounts. Peruse the paper for such
coupons while watching football on Thanksgiving and you're likely
to be glad you did.

and then individually the SGA executive board stepped forward to
recite the SGA oath and officially assume the responsibilities of
serving as SGA officers.
"Trying new things can be a challenge but this year the SGA is
trying to provide a backdrop where the students can enjoy some
amazing activities while experiencing the diversity of different
cultures," said Veronica Bruton, SGA president.
The SGA board includes President Veronica Bruton, Vice-
President Ashley Haynes and Public Relations Officer Jeremy
Weatherspoon.
Following the inductions, guest speaker and NFCC alumni
Marcus Hawkins spoke to the students and guests about removing
their "lids" to receive ultimate success. In his message Hawkins
used the lids of a trash can as a metaphor to describe the obstacles
that hold individuals back from achievements.
)- "Lids are made to restrain or hold down," said Hawkins. "One
of the main lids is fear. When fear is removed from a situation, a
person is able to recognize his or her own abilities and triumph
over all."
