for the team. Inspired by this united front, Debbie Bassett grabbed her camera and
started clicking.

the Crusaders

Friday night

While the undefeated Taylor
County High football team
continues to work toward its
regional final game against
Pensacola Catholic here Friday
night, supporters of the
Bulldogs are organizing several
events to get fans, and the
team, in the spirit.
'Supporters are asking all
businesses and homes to
continue to decorate and make

fans to wear blue this Friday

The high school student

Steinhatchee arrests

linked to marijuana

trafficking operation

Two men arrested in
Steinhatchee Thursday, Sept.
18, are connected to what
officials describe as one of the
largest marijuana growing and
distribution operations in St.
Marys, Ga.
Georgia authorities notified
the Taylor County Sheriffs
Office last week that Cleveland
Miller, 39, and Thomas
McKinley, 44, were in
Steinhatchee and that both had
state warrants out of Camden
County, Ga., for charges of
conspiracy to manufacture
marijuana, trafficking
marijuana and violation of the
Georgia Racketeer Influenced
and Corrupt Organizations Act
(also known at RICO).
Six deputies were sent to the
location at 113 Main Street in
Steinhatchee and the men were
taken into custody without
incident, Capt. Ron Rice said.
The men were arrested at the
riverfront vacation home of
Woodbine, Ga., businessman
Phillip Stanley "Stan" Smith,
50, and his wife, Mary.
The Smiths, along with
Miller, McKinley and Troy
Meridith, 34, were all indicted
by a grand jury Thursday on
the same marijuana and RICO

Both Miller and McKinley
remained in the Taylor County
Jail as of presstime Tuesday,
facing extradition to Camden
According to reports, the
investigation began when St.
Marys firefighters responded to
a generator fire in the garage of
a rental home owned by (Stan)
Smith on Sept. 28. Two days
later, police raided the
unoccupied house and found
588 marijuana plants and 200
small, rooted marijuana plants
Evidence found at the
location led police to a second
rental house where
investigators .found about 90
marijuana plants along with
equipment to grow and
distribute the drugs, reports
Court documents also
showed that a total of 20
pounds of harvested marijuana
were found inside the two grow
Contacted Wednesday, a
representative for the Camden
County Sheriffs Office

Suspect found hiding inside clothes dryer

A man involved in a high
speed chase who abandoned his
vehicle and fled on foot was
found hiding inside a clothes
dryer at a residence on Myrtle
Street Monday afternoon.
Perry Police Department K-9
Bandit led officers directly to
the home where Darrius
Beasley, 20, was found inside
the dryer, attempting to dispose
of a bag of marijuana by
chewing it.
He was charged with two
felony violation of probation

warrants, throwing a deadly
object, child abuse and
tampering with evidence.
Two other individuals
involved in the chase were
arrested and charged as well:
Cheryl Collins, 31, fleeing and
eluding a law enforcement
officer, child abuse and
reckless driving, and Herbreka
Jackson, 24, fleeing and
eluding a law enforcement
officer and reckless driving.

Family Dollar store

robbed on Sunday
No one was injured during an armed robbery that occurred
Sunday evening at the Family Dollar store located in the Perry
Plaza Shopping Center.
The suspect in the case remains at-large.
The unknown subject entered the store armed and wearing a
black ski mask, Perry Police Department (PPD) Capt. Jamie Cruse
"He entered the store around 7 p.m., just after the last few
customers left. He demanded money from the two store
employees, which they gave to him. He then fled the store on foot
into wooded area between the shopping center and Church Street.
A K-9 team tracked him to the roadway and then lost the track,
Cruse said.

between Beasley and Collins in
which Beasley threw an object
into the windshield of a vehicle
occupied by Collins and her 13-
year-old child.
"A chase started with
Jackson driving Beasley and
Collins driving her own
vehicle. Initial reports indicated
that both vehicles were trying
to ram each other," Capt. Jamie
Cruse said.
Calls reporting the incident
were received by 911 dispatch
around 1 p.m.

Ptl. Jason Bass observed the

Gamble Alley debate.is postponed

until Dec. 14 commission meeting

Talks before the county
commission over how to
proceed with Gamble Alley
in Steinhatchee did not
materialize last week after the
issue was inadvertently left
off the agenda.
According Assistant
County Administrator
LaWanda Pemberton,
officials did not want to add
the issue to the agenda after it
had been published due to the
controversy surrounding the
alley and instead it will be
discussed at the board's

Tuesday, Dec. 14, meeting.
It is expected that the board
will decide at that meeting
whether or not to move
forward with -any action,
although it is likely a public
hearing will be scheduled for
a subsequent date before a
final decision is made.
Earlier this month, several
residents addressed the
commission asking for help,
saying the situation had
escalated to the point law
enforcement officers had
been called on both sides.

After talking with the
residents for more than 40
minutes, the board decided to
add the issue to the agenda of
their next meeting since they
could take no official action
that night.
Gamble Alley--which runs
420 feet between Secodd and
Third streets--first came to
the attention of the
commission last year when a
number of residents
requested it be closed due to

4-H trip to Hagens Cove
The 4-H Marine & Environmental Club recently took an observational field trip to the coast at Hagens Cove. The group learned about a variety of plants and animals they
observed along the shoreline, with instruction from UF/IFAS Marine Extension Agent Fred Vose. They also learned about tides and the typical kinds of plant communities
found in salt marshes, including the intertidal zone and the higher marsh areas. This club is for youth in grades five and up. For more information on how to become part of
this 4-H club, contact the 4-H office at 838-3508 or Iwiggins@ufl.edu

After a number of residents
from around Steinhatchee
objected, stating that the
alley was the only "legal" way
to drive golf carts through the
area, the commission declined
the request.
During that hearing, the
board learned that the alley was
not included in the list of
approved roadways for golf

cart use. When a group
attempted to add it to the list,
however, it was discovered that
the alley did not have an
official name.
In December 2009, the
commission named it Gamble
Alley, but in January, when the
board was presented an
expanded list of roadways to
add to the ordinance, the alley
was not included.
In October, the alley was
again brought before the board,
and the commissioners at that

time agreed to disregard
requests to add the alley to the

from the residents living along

Happy Thanksgiving! In
this week of thanks, there are
some special people to whom I
want to extend a huge, "Thank
you!" Last month, each and
every commissioner was
present for our park
celebration--even though they
had to make their way to the
new picnic shelter through a
much needed rainstorm!
An additional 30 people or so
turned out to help thank them
for our wonderful new park.
Not only does the park help
retain a sense of our tranquil
community character, but it
actually adds to our quality of
life--bringing joy to children as
well as we adults. Thank you
Mr. Dudley (our county
engineer) for the park design
and for saving the old fruit trees
within it. I hope you enjoyed
the pear nut bread made from
the sand pears picked by
children playing in the park.
Inez Cruce...thank you for
the wonderful cake and
cupcakes enjoyed at the
dedication. We know the effort
you put into them and so
appreciate the creativity and
work. Thanks to Alisa for
bringing the cups, tea, etc. from
Rocky's Shady Grove Store and
to whomever made the
brownies--delish! Miss Florrie
you deserve the warmest of
"thank you's" for planning and
seeing that the dedication came
to be...even in the rain.

By Deborah Sheffield

Mr. Parker, your opening
words touched me so; but as I
talked to others, I learned that
many of us hope with you that
"we never reach a point where
we think only of what is
necessary" in our
communities...that we also
focus on what adds to our
"quality of living." As you told
us all, "this park was not a
necessity but one of those
things that adds to our quality
of life."--Thank you, sir.
As I sat listening, I thought
of my cousin Sammy Tedder's
favorite Andy Griffith Show
episode...A movie maker
comes to Mayberry and
everyone gets caught up in the
mayhem. The mayor and
commission decide to cut down
the tree in the town square as
they think it is an emblem of
backwardness. Rather than be
their natural selves, they all buy
new store-bought clothes,
trying to impress the movie
man. Just as they are about to
destroy the tree, the director
stops them. He asks, "What
happened to you all!?" The tree
and the natural character of the
community of Mayberry was
the inspiration from the very
beginning! Of course in the
show, the tree was saved and
the mayor ordered everyone
back to their ordinary selves.
Thank you Mr. Parker, and
others, for adding to the beauty
of Shady Grove. Holding onto

our quaint country character
and all that it entails is in no
way a sign of backwardness.
Sure, we need lots of
inventions we enjoy in our
lives--and many of them add to
our joy in living. But, when the
motto becomes "he who has the
most toys...wins" then we
become like the Mayor of
Mayberry--misguided as to
what "progress" truly means.
Joy in living, love and a better
quality of life is a true measure
of progress, is it not? Let's all
work together to keep our park
nice, clean, and safe for all for
us and for future generations of
Shady Grove. And as those

and keep what is good about

Here is the wonderful
Broccoli Salad Recipe from
Sandy Tedder who is married to
Sammy Tedder. A nice salad to
add to the Thanksgiving table:

Broccoli Salad
About 5 cups of broccoli
tops (you can steam slightly,
but they're good raw, too)
1/3 c. chopped red onion
(chopped fine, but optional)
1/2 c. roasted, salted
sunflower seeds
1/2 to 1. c. golden raisins (or
sweetened dried cranberries)
1/2 to 3/4 c. bacon (cooked
until crispy and then crumbled)
1 small can mandarin
oranges (sometimes I use two
cans of mandarin oranges)
1 c. mayonnaise
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. apple cider vinegar
Mix in a jar and shake well,
or beat with a beater, until it is
homogenized. (You can use
bottled salad dressing, coleslaw
dressing, Vidalia onion
dressing, poppy seed dressing.)
Mix everything except

'Dogs will host Pensacola Catholic Friday

Continued from page 7
On the opening drive of the
game, the Bulldogs' offensive
line (and great-blocking
receivers) bulldozed their way
down the field -- allowing Tony
Jackson, Tevin Jones and Eli
Grambling to execute the option
attack perfectly -- on an 8-play,
83-yard scoring drive capped by
Grambling's 10-yard TD run.
A fumble on a kickoff return
reverse forced the Braves to
start from their own 5, and the
Bulldog defense forced a punt
in just three plays, as Wesley
Brandon made a big hit to break
up a pass and Houston knocked
down another pass.
Tony Jackson appeared to

score on a perfectly-executed
bubble screen pass play he took
41 yards for a touchdown, but
the play was called back on an
offsides penalty against Walton.
Walton blocked Daniel
Wentworth's first punt and had
great field position at the Taylor
46, but the Bulldog defense
came up big again and forced
another three-and-out.
Penalties and a big dropped
pass forced another Bulldog
punt at the end of the first quarter
before the Bulldog defense went
on a scoring spree.
Becerra rattled Miller with a
9-yard sack on the second play
of the second quarter and J.
Jackson picked off a pass and
returned it 26 yards for a TD two
plays later to give Taylor a 13-0

A block in the back penalty
on the kickoff return forced the
Braves to begin from their own
6 and Miller picked up a first
down with several short passes
before J. Jackson almost picked
off another pass and Brandon
recovered a fumble.
Jackson picked up 28 yards
on four carries thanks to blocks
by Chad Hill, Justin McGuire,
Brandon Jones and Houston,
before Grambling followed
Aaron Crews, Blaine Brenner
and Josh Wells into the endzone
for a 3-yard TD with 4:27 left in
the half to give the Bulldogs a
20-0 lead.
Walton started on their own 3
after a personal foul penalty on

the kickoff, and Hill and Johnson
stuffed a first-down pass for just
a 2-yard gain before Houston
picked off Miller's second down
pass at the 16 and high-stepped
into the endzone untouched for a
27-0 Bulldogs lead.
Starting from their own 15,
Walton's hole got deeper when
J. Jackson pounded a receiver on
an incompletion and Braswell
and Miller stopped a run after
just 5 yards. Houston intercepted
a third down pass at the 31 and
raced into the endzone for his
second touchdown and a 34-0
halftime lead.

Snowfest is a not-for-profit

I am not a member of the First United
Methodist Church of Perry.
But I'm there at least one Thursday
night of each year, prior to Thanksgiving.
And I'm in line alongside friends and
neighbors from many churches in the
That Thursday night would be the
one in which the Guild Circle presents
its Thanksgiving Dinner. For this
event, they need traffic control.and
they have it.
It would be difficult to name the
Methodists who aren't involved in this
production, in some manner. There
are 30 members of the Guild Circle,
according to Catharin Norman, who
first served as finance treasurer and
now acts as coordinator. All of those
30 are directly involved but they are
entitled to recruit. And recruit, they
"We had men in the kitchen helping
us every day this year," said Norman,
adding that others assist by waiting
tables, handling take-outs and parking
cars. "The Guild organizes the
Thanksgiving Dinner but it's a church-
wide project--we couldn't do it without
them," she added.
Since 2008, Glenda Hambyhas beenin
charge of the project. She and Norman
fully agree that organization is critical
for a Thanksgiving Dinner of this
proportion. "But we must pay tribute
to Jim Glascoe," said Hamby. "He truly
is the Guild's right hand man."
This year marked the 68th anniversary
of the Thanksgiving Dinner. While
the church celebrated its presence
in Taylor County for 140 years, its
members served 700 Thanksgiving
dinners. Some years, the dinner count
has neared 1000.
All the numbers are impressive.
"It hasn't always been this big,"
Norman explained, "but since we've
had the facilities to handle the
crowd--for about the past 25 years--it's
really grown."
The first year or two, said Norman,
about 125 dinners were served. Three
ladies made the whole dinner possible:
Lula Stephens, Mary Whitfield and
Nettie Reddick, mother to Catharin
"Those three cooked the turkeys and
dressing, and our custodian did the
green beans, the tea and the coffee."
Another name which remains prominent
in the history of the Thanksgiving
feast is that of "Mrs. (Mamie) Fouche"
who ran the dining room for the old
Dixie-Taylor Hotel. As the memories
return, Mrs. Norman remembers that
Jane Parker pumpkin pies were bought
for some of the first church dinners,
hailing from the local A&P.
The line for take-out at this annual
dinner is one of only a few that I don't
mind standing in. It moves steadily but
still allows time for visiting. If there's
somebody you haven't seen in a while,
you'll probably find them there.
One year, I saw my daughter's third
grade teacher. Even though we had


id the hungry
lived in the same small town for six
years since our "year together," our
paths never seemed to cross.
I have seen friends from Shady Grove.
This year, I saw veterans from the
earlier Veterans Day ceremony. I saw
children who have the daughter as their
own third grade teacher.
And, as always, I saw half of my
own church congregation, as well as
Methodists everywlief:'e:J.'' "lKIT ,J&Th
Nobody is angry at the annual
Methodist dinner, or if they are, they're
banished from the public eye. The
kitchen crew always seems to be having
the most fun and they wave with their
plastic gloves as they slap dressing on
"We really have so much fun,"
said Laura Mock. "It's not really like
Typically, harvest decorations set
the mood for the Thanksgiving Dinner.
This year, however, since the event
landed on Nov. 11, tribute was paid
to all the veterans in the community.
Patriotic red, white and blue saluted
the service of many, with uniforms on
display from various branches of the
U.S. military.
As the line moves smoothly through
the church facilities, it gives you a
glimpse of a church with a history.
The furniture in the downstairs area
reminds me of church furniture I once
sat upon. Hymnbooks rest near Bibles;
pictures with scriptural importance
hang near posters which point visitors
to take-out or dine-in.
And the United Methodist Church
prepares to feed the hungry.
Well, maybe not the world's starving
masses, but the community-at-large.
And with the proceeds from this
quantum event, they do help to feed
the world's starving masses and buy
youth scholarships for camp, while
contributing to the church's building
fund, giving to Refuge House and
the Needy School Children's Fund,
donating to the Methodist Children's
Home in Enterprise, Ala., buying tables
and chairs, supporting the church's
food pantry and equipping the church
kitchen....for the next Thanksgiving
Dinner (and all those Wednesday night
suppers in between).
Last year, the creative forces behind
the Thanksgiving Dinner began a
new tradition ensuring that not one
morsel of food was wasted. "Even
though we were exhausted on the day
after the dinner--you know we spend
the whole week at the church making
preparations--we gathered again on
Friday and made soup from the turkey
carcasses," said Hamby. Not just a pot
of soup, mind you, but 85 gallons of
homemade turkey soup for the food
pantry. "We also package any leftover
food and distribute it," she said.
On this week of official, national
thanksgiving, the annual Methodist
Church Thanksgiving Dinner is just one
more thing, for which to be... thankful.
And I am.
