Staff writer
Morphine. Tourniquet.
Stitches.
U.S. Marine medic Bill
Maddox, translator by his
side, fired orders to his South
Korean counterparts as he
moved among the wounded.
With the roar of mortar and
artillery still hanging in the
air, he kept a watchful eye for
the enemy, ever mindful that
even in the midst of
battlefield chaos he still had
to protect himself.


Maddox was awarded
numerous medals for
his service.
Those with intense
wounds--blown off arms or
legs--were stabilized and
prepared for evacuation to a
hospital or field hospital.


Then, quiet returned. Days
marched by until the next
skirmish erupted and all hell
would break loose once
again.
Maddox's one-year tour of
duty during the Korean War
would forever shape the man
he was then, a newlywed
soldier in his early 20s, and
the seasoned, accomplished
veteran he is today.
"Once it was over and I
was home, I realized that for
the rest of my life, nothing
would hopefully be as intense
as that year was. It prepared
me for anything that came
along," Maddox said.
The front lines on the 38th
parallel were a long way
from the halls of the
University of Florida, where
Maddox was a pre-med
student.
"A friend of mine and I got
our heads together and
decided we wanted to see the
world. It was July 1950. I
was 19 years old.
"We joined the Navy and
soon we were on a train
headed for San Diego, Calif.
It started out very exciting.
My friend and I were in boot

Bill Maddox credits his flack jacket with saving
his life when he was struck by shrapnel. He was
back with his unit two weeks after been wounded.
"I was very lucky."


County cries foul



on septic tank bill


A provision requiring
almost all septic tanks in the
state to be inspected every
five years could cost Taylor
County residents hundreds or
even thousands of dollars.
The requirement, which
was passed this year by the
Florida Legislature as part of
a much larger bill, is still in
the state rule-making process
and is set to go into effect
Jan. 1, 2011.
However, late last week,
Senator Charlie Dean


announced a plan to revise a
section of the bill during a
special legislative session
slated for Nov. 16 that would
allow for a delay of the
phase-in deadline. (Please
see related story page A-5.)
In response to the potential
costs to residents, Taylor
County Commissioners
unanimously passed a
resolution last week strongly
opposing the regulations.
They will also be lobbying
the Florida Association of


Counties, which is currently
discussing its response to the
bill, to join them in calls for
repealing the language.
James Rachal with the
Taylor County Health
Department (TCHD) spoke
to commissioners during
their meeting Monday, Nov.
1, about the new
requirements and the
projected costs.
According to Rachal, there

Bulldogs continue march to


state, host playoff on Nov. 19


The Class 2B state playoff
picture has become clearer
now for the undefeated
Taylor County High football
team.
If the Region 1, District 2
Bulldogs (9-0, 5-0) continue
their winning ways, they
would host the first two
playoff games and possibly a
third depending on who wins
in Region 2.
What is known for sure is
that the District 2 champion
Bulldogs will host District 1


runner-up DeFuniak
Springs/Walton on Friday,
Nov. 19.
In the other Region 1 semi-
final game, District 2
runnerup Fort White will
travel to District 1 champ
Pensacola Catholic (9-0, 3-0)
also on Nov. 19.
If the Bulldogs defeat
Walton (6-3, 2-1) they
would host the winner
of the Pensacola Catholic-
Fort White contest on
Nov. 26 in the Region 1


finals.
Beyond the first two
weeks, the home field
advantage gets more
complicated but the 'Dogs
could (depending on who
wins) host the state semi-
final game against the winner
of Region 2.
Region 2 includes several
traditional powerhouse
programs including
Jacksonville Bolles (9-0, 6-0)
and Ocala Trinity Catholic
(10-0, 5-0).


What a night!
Eleven Taylor County High School musicians had the opportunity of a lifetime
Thursday--to play alongside the famed U.S. Army Field Band, which was in
concert at Forest Capital Hall. An enthusiastic and appreciative crowd filled one
entire side of bleachers for the performance. Taking their bows with the band
were: (flute) Samantha Tyler and Caitlin Weatherly; (clarinet) Lucas Allbritton
and Caitlin Carter; (alto sax) Austin Wynn; (trumpet) Santina Deming and Eli
Walker; (French horn) David Lamb and James Clover; (trombone) Tyler
Whitfield; and (euphonium) Annsley Bohlman. (Photos by Rob Mclver)

When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?


Putting People'to Work
The first thing they did.ywas rent my boat and hire me to help with .
the cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills'. And -
they worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and.
shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses
open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could support
our families.


Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would IP.stick around? Well, they did. The beaches', .
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep!
working for as long as it takes.


Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If
you still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If
you're wondering what you can do, well the next time you're
shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.


For assistance, please call:

camp together and then got
split up. He went to the Great
Lakes area and I stayed in San
Diego before going to Korea.
He never did much traveling--
he never even got sent
overseas."
After boot camp, Maddox
was transferred "across town"
to the Balboa Naval Hospital
where he was a scrub
corpsman, assisting in the
operating room,
"I was there for about a year
and a half when they started
asking for volunteers to join the
Marines. You knew that if you
joined, you were automatically
going to Korea with the fleet
Marine division. You also knew
that if they didn't get enough
volunteers, you were going
anyway--they needed medics
badly."
It was around that time that
Maddox took a trip home on
leave and married his
sweetheart, Virginia (Ginny),
"We had 10 days to
honeymoon and then I was sent
back to California for cold
weather training and Marine
boot camp. Then to Korea, It
was one year before I saw her
again. I spent .our first
anniversary in Korea,"
As for the conditions
awaiting him in Korea,
Maddox said he had some idea
what was in store.
"I had talked.to medics who
had come back. The conditions
were rough.,We knew there was
a lot of fighting and combat,
and that was about it,"
He was part of the 1st Marine
Division, 5th Regiment
Combat Team.
"After landing in Korea, it
was about three months before
I was sent to the front lines. A
lot of medics had if worse than
I had it--I helped set up field
hospitals and trained Koreanss
on how to handle instruments
and prepare conditions so that
doctors could operate in a
sterile environment. A lot of
medics went immediately into
the field." l"i ,l
Maddox was embedded with
a group of South Korean
Marines.
"I was the only American in
the Korean Marine Corps, but I
had support from the 5th
regiment combat team. I had an
interpreter who stayed with me
the whole time.
"The support was fantastic,
All you had to do was mention
something you might need and
they were on it, There was a
general who was learning
English and he wanted me to
teach him some American
songs, which I did, He also
wanted to know as much as he
could about Americans, their
daily lives,
"Many times we couldn't get
food brought in to us, so I
would eat with the Koreans.


Bill Maddox used a walkie talkie to call in help to
evacuate wounded soldiers.


Rice was a staple...and
anything they could find for
protein also got thrown into the
pot, It was better not to ask.
But, I had no repercussions, so
I guess it was okay.
"Every six weeks, we got
sent back two weeks behind the
lines for R&R, I got a letter
from my wife every day that I
was gone and I wrote her as
much as I could."
The war was drawing to a
close by the summer of 1953
and it was on the day the war
ended, that Maddox was
wounded.
'"hat was the day the peace
treaty was signpd, By the time
word got out to the troops, it
was a day later. It was a happy
time for everybody."
,Mostly,
A piece of shrapnel from an
incoming artillery shell pierced
Maddox's protective flack
jacket and hit his chest,
"It went through the ribs and
out the side. All of the Korean
medics jumped on me,..it was
like the King of England had
been wounded."


That was Maddox's pared
down version of what occurred.
A citation from the Ministry
of National Defense, Republic
of Korea, tells a different story:
"During the severe enemy
attacks on the Yon-Chon area,
commencing on 27 June 1953,
Hospitalman Third Class
Maddox, realizing that our
forces were suffering
casualties, displayed
exceptional devotion to duty,
and with complete disregard for
his own personal safety while
subjected to hostile enemy
automatic weapons and
artillery fire, rendered first aid
and evacuated our casualties.
On 27 July 1953 he was
wounded in action while in the
performance of his duties. His
distinguished performance of
duty, resourcefulness and
indomitable spirit reflected
high credit upon himself and
the United States Navy and
were in keeping with the
highest traditions of the Korean
Naval Service and the Republic
of Korea Marine Corps."

recognized Maddox "for
exceptionally meritorious
service to the 1st Korean
Marine Corps Regimental
Combat Team and to the free
people of the Republic of
Korea during the period 15
December 1952 to 20
September 1953. While serving
as a corpsman to the 2nd
Battalion, 1st Korean Marine
Corps Regimental Combat
Team, Hospitalman Third Class
Maddox displayed outstanding
professional skill, initiative and
aggressiveness. His untiring
efforts and devotion to duty
brought high credit upon
himself from various Korean
Medical Officers who were
attached to his battalion. His
great courage, indomitable
spirit, and exemplary conduct
were the cause for high morale
among the Korean Marines."
The citation accompanied the
awarding of the Wharang
Medal with Gold Star to
Maddox for his service.
Maddox stayed in Korea for
another four months after being
wounded, returning stateside in
December 1953.
He remained in contact with
one of the doctors with whom
he worked in Korea, Dr. Kim,
for whom his oldest daughter is
named after.
"When I came back, they
said that I had a choice on
where I wanted to go to spend
my last six months of service. I
said Jacksonville Naval Air
Base. I got orders for
California.
"My wife and I went out. I
was home every weekend, and
she and I traveled all over the

West Coast. We had Korea
behind us and it was a great
time for both of us. That was
also actually my first
experience on a ship. Since
they flew us to Korea, I didn't
get on a ship until I was on my
way home from Korea. Three
and one-half years in the Navy
and I had never been on a ship
until then."
Once he was discharged,
Maddox returned to the
University of Florida and pre-
med while Ginny ran a nursery
school.
"I took pre-med for one
semester, but we felt like it was
just going to be too long before
I was finished, so I switched to
engineering. Our. two oldest
children were born while I was
going to college."
Maddox received a degree in
civil engineering in February
1958. That same month, he and
his family moved to Perry,
where he went to work for


Buckeye.
"We were here one week
when the big snow hit."
Perry remained his family's
home base during his 33 years
with Buckeye, which took him
to Alberta, Canada, for one year
and Georgia for a time.
"All of our children--Kim
Marchant, Steve Maddox and
Kendall Cruce--graduated from
Taylor County High School."
During his retirement years,
Maddox and his wife have
stayed busy traveling and
spending a lot of time at a
vacation spot in Gatlinburg,
Tenn.
His time in the service is
remembered by stacks of
medals tucked away in boxes
and faded photos of a young
man in combat gear.
Memory has only sharpened
the intensity of those days at
war.
"I never regretted a day," he
still says.

Revision would protect homeowners

SEPTIC TANK BILL
Continued from page 1
are approximately 12,000
septic tank permits in the
county, meaning they will
have to conduct 2,400
inspections per year, which
will be based on lists
provided by the Florida
Department of Health.
The new rule states
inspections must be
conducted by licensed
septic tank contractors,
environmental health
professionals or professional
engineers. Rachal said there
are only two licensed
contractors in the county.
The costs associated with
inspections include a $30 fee
plus $150 to $450 for
pumping out the system. If it
is determined repairs are
necessary, that could push the
cost in the thousands of


dollars, Rachal said.
Those living at or below
133 percent of the poverty
level will be eligible for a
one-year postponement as
well as a grant program to
assist with the cost of the
inspection.
The grant program,
however, will be funded by
the new fees,
so it is unknown whether
any money will be available
in the first year of the
program.
TCHD Director Steve
Tullos said that while septic
tank inspections are under
the purview of his
department, the new rules are
being mandated on the state
level.
He added that until the
rule-making process is
complete, the exact language
of the new requirements is
still fluctuating.

delay of the phase-in of a bill
passed by former State
Senator Lee Constantine
requiring inspections of septic
tanks.
While the intention of the bill
was to apply only to septic
tanks near groundwater
springs--like the threatened
Wekiva Springs in Seminole
County--further review
found the bill accidentally
would require inspection of all
3.9 million septic tanks
statewide.
"I requested incoming Senate
President Mike Haridopolos,
along with my colleagues from
across the state, to look at the
possibility to revise section 37

"Although the bill has an
effective date of Jan. 1, 2011,
Senate Bill 550's mandatory

is not until 2016. I believe if we
act to revise this language
immediately, we will save
homeowners from this

their septic tanks and it will

The possible revision is one
of 13 issues the legislature
will consider during the

The special session will take
place on the same day as the

'Dogs

BY AARON PORTWOOD
Tony Jackson rushed for 116
yards and three TD's and the
Taylor County defense held
district rival Florida High to
just 7 points, as the Bulldogs"
remained undefeated with a,.
20-7 win over the Seminoles
Friday night in Tallahassee.
The Bulldogs (9-0) are now
just one victory away over
winless Chiefland (0-9)..from
their second-ever unbeaten
regular season.
Taylor County's most recent
win didn't come easy, as the
Bulldogs struggled to move the
ball through the air, fumbled
three times and committed 10
penalties for 70 yards.
However, the Bulldogs',
offensive line and rushing attack
picked up the slack, as QB Eli
Grambling had a season-high 19'
carries for 129 yards (6.8 yards
per carry) and Jackson' rushed
14 times for 116 yards and all
3 Taylor touchdowns (averaging
8.3 yards per carry).
The Bulldogs scored on the


opening possession of the game,
but struggled to move the ball
on the remainder of their 5 first-
1,. half possessions (two punt'twoQ
'failed fake punts and one failed
4th down conversion attempt).
Taylor opened the second
half by scoring on its first two
drives to take a 20-7 lead before
fumbling inside the Florida
High 15 yard line and finishing
the game by taking a knee,
"I was disappointed in our
lack of focus for this game. You
could see it on the bus ride, in the
locker room and we even talked

about it during pre-game. I
think it was a case of us winning
district, everyone telling us how
great we are and the result of
facing a good 3-5 team," Head
Coach Shane Boggs said.
."I was really disappointed
ini the pre-snap penalties and
general lack of focus. In an
eight- or 10-possession game
you can't stop yourselves four
consecutive times like' we
did in the first half. We can't
blame it on the weather or the
opponent. Ultimately this will
be a blessing, because. we will
get better because of it. It is.a
clear sign that there is- still a lot
of work to be done. Great teams
are mentally tough and find a
way to be consistent despite
.the conditions. You can't have
these kind of letdowns going.
forward if we expect to be a
.championship caliber teain,"
Boggs added.
Boggs praised the. play of
hii offensive line and singled
out right guard Blaine Brenner
for his great effort. "He wsas a

both his man and made it to
the second level to stay in the

Center Josh Wells, who played
through a hip injury that forced

McGuire and Aaron Crews.
"McGuire is a great player and
executed really well," Boggs
said.
Boggs praised how well
Jackson ran the ball against the
Seminoles, but added that the
senii. still needs to."pick it up


a notch on his blocking."
.The Taylor County defense
deserves much of the credit
for the win, as Defensive
Coordinator Steve Price's unit
recorded a second-half shut-out,
thanks'to a season-high 8 tackles
for loss and four sacks, as well
as forcing, and recovering a
fumble and blocking a go-ahead
field goal.
The Dog defense held Florida
High to just 100.yards rushing on
' 31 carries (3.2 yards'per carry),
forcing Seminole QB Dewayne ^ I
Harvey (15 of 28 passing, 177
yards) to go to the air.

for Taylor's defense, tying his

Monday with 4-0 win
The Taylor County High boys soccer team won Monday's season
opener against Community Christian 4-0.
The Bulldogs started off slow as they got accustomed to each other
and the speed of the varsity game. Late in the first half, freshman
standout Joe Pelt punished the ball in the back of the net from the
top of the box, assisted by his brother Morgan Pelt.
The Bulldogs went.into the half leading 1-0. Taylor County came
out in the second half with a new understanding of how to work
together and quickly added to the scoring with Ryan Ragans' header
off a corer kick from Joe Pelt. Soon after, the Bulldogs added
another goal when Joe Pelt sent a through ball to Justin Folsom,'
who buried it in the side netting.
The 'Dogs' defense --. led' by Caleb .Rhbdes, Johathan Thomas,

to take it to another level when
we need to," Boggs said.
The Bulldogs opened the
game with a quick 4-play, 80-
yard scoring drive keyed by
Grambling's 72-yard QB keeper
off right tackle on the first play
of the game.
Three plays later Jackson
took a perfect option pitch
from Grambling and ran into
the endzone untouched for a
touchdown just 1:06 into the
game.
.Hunter Barfield's extra point
kick put the Bulldogs up 7-0.
Both defenses dominated most
of the rest of the first half, until
Florida High took advantage of
a fumbled snap on a Bulldog
fake punt play and scored three
plays later on a 10-yard run by
senior Seminole running back
Kelvin Farmer to tie the game at
7-7 with 2:44 remaining in the
first half.
After having a field goal
blocked by Brandon ,midway
through the second quarter,
Seminole kicker Robert Kohler
had a chance to give Florida
High the lead on the final play
of the first half, but his 30-.
yard field goal bounced off the
soccer goal cross bar just under
the goal post.
Florida High opened up by
feeding the ball to senior tailback
Kelvin Farmer, who finished
with 8 carries for 46 yards and
the only Seminole touchdown,
but Brandon, Johnson, Parker,
Bass, Braswell and Ward soon

Thursday, Dec. 2


shut down the rushing attack.
After the Dog defense forced
a Seminolepun, Taylor,-egan
at their own 8 and picked up
a first down on a 13-yard run
by Jackson before two false
start penalties and a fumbled
snap recovered' by Grambling
killed the drive and led to a 39-
yard punt by freshman Daniel
Wentworthl
J. Jackson knocked away a
pass and Parker and Brandon
stuffed a running play to force
another Seminole punt, which
Houston returned 36 yards to the
Taylor 41. William Wentworth
came on and completed a 22-
yard pass to James Strawter (3
catches, 27 yards), but misfired
on his next four pass attempts to
turn the ball over on downs.
Run-stuffing tackles by
Parker and Braswell, and a sack
by Parker forced a Florida High
fake punt pass that was dropped
at midfield.
Despite good starting field
position (at the Taylor 48), the
Bulldogs shot themselves in the
foot with an unsportsmanlike
conduct penalty, incompletion
and Jackson dropped a perfect
fake punt 'pass from D.
Wentworth on 4th and 19 from
the Taylor 37.
Houston and Nelson made

Continued from page 7
two consecutive plays to give
Florida High a first down.
The Seminoles drove inside
the Bulldogs' 10 yard line before
Becerra, Brandon, Johnson and
J. Jackson came up big with
four straight stops to force a 25-
yard field goal attempt that was
blocked by Brandon with 6:07
left in the first half.
Grambling and Jackson
carried the ball to move Taylor
from the 25 to the 42 before
the drive stalled and Jackson
couldn't handle a direct snap
on a fake punt play that lost 12
yards and gave the Seminoles
the ball on the Bulldog 30.
Farmer punched the ball into
the endzone three plays later to
tie the game at 7-7 with 2:44 left
in the half.
Despite Houston's 32-yard
kickoff return, the Bulldogs
went backwards and had two
overthrown passes to force a 38-
yard D. Wentworth punt.
Florida High drove down to
the Bulldogs' 13 in the final
minute of the half, but Kohler
came up a foot short on his
30-yard field goal try to keep
the score tied at 7-7 going into
halftime.
A sack by Johnson and stops
by Parker and Brandon pinned
Florida High deep in their own
territory to start the third quarter
and the Bulldog offense got
back on track with a lightning-
quick 2-play, 41-yard drive
that included a 5-yard keeper
by Grambling followed by
Jackson's 36-yard TD run with
8:58 left in the third.
Barfield nailed the extra point
to give Taylor a 14-7 lead.
Johnson, J. Jackson, Nelson
and Becerra continued the
Dogs' defensive dominance by
forcing another punt, including
a huge tackle for a loss on a 3rd
and 2 play.
The Bulldogs offense then put
together a mammoth 12-play,
84-yard drive.
Mixing QB keepers by
Grambling and runs by Jackson,
the Bulldogs moved down
the field before Grambling hit
Houston on a 7-yard screen pass
and then made a great 18-yard
run for a first down on 4th and 6
from the Florida High 45.
The Bulldogs converted
yet another 4th down try later
in the drive when Grambling
threw deep to J. Jackson and the
Seminoles were flagged for pass
interference on 4th and 9 at the
Seminole 26.
One play later T. Jackson
bounced a run outside and out-

By Staff Sgt.
CHRISTOPHER HOLMES
METETI, Panama
Deep within one of the most
pristine and untouched jungles
in the world, where indigenous
tribes scrape by with whatever
the land around them provides,
the son of a Perry man and
woman is making a difference.
In an area so remote only
naturalists, botanists and
archeologists dare venture
within its 10,000 square miles
of raw wilderness, he is helping


improve the quality
people living in cone
most Americans will
or experience.

humanitarian and
assistance during
exercise called

Sherrer is a
craftsman working


new schools in the region.
"I am here repairing schools
and clinics for the people of
Panama," said Sherrer, a 1992
graduate of Taylor County
High School.
The military's U.S. Southern
Command, based in Miami,
sends engineer and medical
teams from units throughout
the U.S. once a year to areas
throughout Central and South
America as a training platform
that also helps provide
invaluable infrastructure to

chance to do some things I

Because many of the selected
locations are in some of the
most remote and poverty-
stricken areas of Latin
America, Sherrer and his
teammates often find
themselves in locations and
conditions unlike anything
they've ever experienced.
"The people here are very
kind and are grateful for what
we are doing for them down
here," said Sherrer.
"New Horizons" is an
exercise that has brought
construction and medical help
to impoverished regions
throughout Central and South
America and the Caribbean for
more than a quarter of a
century.
The exercise has also
provided service members like
Sherrer with experience in
building schools, digging
wells, constructing community
centers and medical clinics, as
well as providing medical care
in a real-world setting that is
cementing partnerships with
those countries for decades to
come.

B-2 Taco Times

Give the gift of music to


middle school students


As Band Director Heather
Whorton works to teach middle
school students the value and
cadence of music, she's
confronted with yet another
Challenge: many who would
enjoy playing simply don't have
the resources to buy an
instrument.
Parents, who are integral to any
band program, are particularly
sensitive to such needs and
appeal to the community to
check their closets. If you once
had a student in the band
program and his/her instrument
is laying on the shelf in a back
bedroom, would you consider
loaning it or giving it to a current
student in the Taylor County
Middle School program?


Nobody wants to beg and
students don't want others to
know that they're unable to be in
band because of money. But for
parents who have traveled this
road--worked concessions, paid
to rent instruments or
contributed to band trip costs--
the dilemma is familiar.
If you're housing an instrument
that could be bringing the gift of
music to someone in sixth,
seventh or eighth grade, consider
making an early Christmas
present: the gift of music.
Anyone who has ever been the
recipient of such a gift will tell
you that it not only keeps on
giving, it positively affects the
quality of a person's life...for a
lifetime.

Now that's a band!


On Nov. 4 the U.S. Army
Field Band and Soldiers'
Chorus performed in concert at
Forest Capital Hall. The few
hundred local citizens who
were privileged to be there
were treated to what likely was
the finest musical performance
ever presented in Perry. Words
can't fully
express how it
felt to be there,
but I want to tell
you about it
anyway. For
me, few things
can lift the
spirits the way
a good, military
band can.

Based upon my personal
knowledge of how incoming
musicians were selected for the
U;S. Navy's School of Music
way back when (I believe that
today all of the armed forces
use one school) I can tell you
that to get into the school an
applicant had to be an expert
performer on two different
instruments. Most beginner
musicians never get to be
expert on even one. They also

had to demonstrate some
ability to arrange musical
numbers. So, you had to be

NOW THAT WE HAVE YOUR ATTENTION...


Midweek Muddle


The Eye of the Beholder


/4.- ".-


My earliest memory of art rests within
the pages of a small book called, "Great
Pictures and Their Stories," published in
1930.
My mother used it as an elementary
school teacher and it later became part
of our home collection. As a young
child, I remember flipping through the
pages and especially -iTaydream~ng
before the depiction of "A Holiday." It
framed the beach; the children playing
in the water were happy; I wanted to be
there.
It's funny that a book that small, and
an introduction that unintentional,
could prompt a lifelong enjoyment of
art. But I firmly believe it did.
I can't tell an original from a
reproduction, nor can I name a
technique or a tool, but I can easily say
that I enjoy art. I enjoy wondering what
an artist is seeing, what an artist is
thinking and how an artist can possibly
translate life to a canvas.
In her renassiance attempt to
familiarize me with art, music and
dance, my mother enrolled me in art,
music and dance. It didn't take long for
her or my art teacher to recognize that I
had no hidden talent. I needed the little
numbers to tell me where a shadow
should go.
However, and this is a big however: I
now see shadows in everybody's
artwork. I know how they did it. Art
lessons didn't turn me into Monet, but
they helped me appreciate him.
That's all we should expect of
education.
From grade school to graduation, art
was a simple flirtation.
It even became a retreat for my
mother when I left home for college.
She took classes and painted six
canvases that we're still not sure how to
treat objectively yet respectfully. She
occasionally called her work "primitive"
which I think explained away anything
she failed to do correctly and the rest of
it too. It was therapy more than
anything, and if a $50 art class makes
you whole, then the paintings exist as a
tribute to what a little beauty can do to
a life.
As a wedding gift, an artist friend of
mine framed a small painting of a
lighted candle in dark, burgundy colors.
An advertising friend of mine
produced a pencil drawing of the shoes
I wanted but couldn't afford.
Art has followed me around since my
earliest days, and it's no wonder that I
felt I had "come of age" when I
purchased my very first painting.
It still has the most prominent place in


...-'" -- ,; .. '; ,
, *'" . . . .. *,** e. .,


our home: above the fireplace mantel.
Created by Beth Anderson, formerly of
Perry, it is a beautiful interpretation of
Spring Warrior at sunset.
I bought it when we absolutely could
not afford it.
Anderson had spoken at a club
meeting I attended. She had some
wonderful small paintings of tobacco
barns in Madison County, the Keaton
Beach Hot Dog Stand and other familiar
sites. They were beautifully framed and
cost virtually nothing. I easily bought
her small painting of the First. United
Methodist Church with a "van Gogh"
starry-starry-night look.
Then she presented another, larger
painting for sale, and I was in love.
Some force greater than myself caused
me to raise my hand and offer an
amount which she accepted.
I wrote the check, thinking, "What am I
doing?"
She graciously volunteered to follow
me home that evening in her hulking
station wagon because there was no way
this oversized painting would fit in my
car.
There were no cell phones at that time
and it was imperative that I reached my
house before she did to assure the
husband that I was willing to work a
second job or sell a kidney to earn
enough money to pay for this wonderful
painting.
She followed me closely so the
best I could do was run in
and say in one sentence,
"IjustboughtapaintingandlknowIshould
nothavebutlhadtohaveitandlwillfindsom
ewaytopayforit."
"You did what?" he asked.
I went outside and helped Mrs.
Anderson bring in the oversized piece of
artwork which we immediately placed
on the mantel. We stood back and
admired it. It was perfect. Absolutely
perfect.
Up until this point, the husband had
had no opportunity to say anything
more than "hello" to her.
"What do you think?" she asked him,
as we basked in the glow of her art.
"I had really hoped for a velvet Elvis,"
he said pensively, and to annoy me.
It worked: I was horrified. How could
this man that I had married say such a
stupid thing in the presence of a true,
gifted artist?
It turns out the true, gifted artist was
also a diplomat. She nodded, smiled
knowingly and then said, with grace and
charm, "I could see where a velvet Elvis
would work there... especially if you put
lava lamps on either side."

B-3 Taco Times November 10, 2010


Audience members cheered musicians from the Taylor County High School band
when they joined the Army Field Band for a performance.


The U.S. Army Field Band performance featured a number of classic and
contemporary selections. (Photos by Rob Mclver)


Taylor County High School musicians joined band on stage for one performance


NOW THAT'S A BAND
Continued from page 2
difficult.
During one number several
Taylor County High School
musicians were allowed to sit


in the band and play with it. I
know those students will never
forget that experience.
The band performed for more
than hour, and when the concert
ended it was almost a letdown.
I'm sure that many of the


attendees would gladly have
endured the hard seats for a
while longer just to hear a few
more numbers.
Getting a band of that size to
come to Perry was quite an
accomplishment. We can thank


Perry Newspapers and the
Chamber of Commerce for the
main effort, but numerous other
groups had to do a great
amount of planning and
coordinating long before the
band arrived. If I knew their


names I would list them here.
To everyone involved in
bringing this outstanding
entertainment to us, I say thank
you, thank you and thank you!
To everyone who thought about
attending but didn't, I offer my


sympathy for your loss. And in
case you're wondering, the
band is funded entirely with
taxpayers' dollars. I can't think
of many government programs
that give us a better return for
our money.
