Stand-off ends peacefully
A tense and potentially
dangerous stand-off between an
emotionally distressed man and
law enforcement officers
reached a somewhat peaceful
resolution Tuesday morning
shortly before 9.
Initial reports stated that the
man, later identified as Justin
Soroka, 20, had barricaded
himself inside a residence on
Puckett Road and may have
been intending to harm himself
"We were told that there were
guns in the house," Taylor
County Sheriffs Office
(TCSO) Lt. Marty Nowlin said.
Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) Sgt.
Matt Chaffin, who lives in the
area, was flagged down as he
passed the residence.
Deputies from the TCSO,
officers from the Perry Police
Department and a trooper from
the Florida Highway Patrol all
quickly responded to the scene
One of the responding
officers, TCSO Inv. Dewayne
Bratcher, knew the suspect and
was able to make contact with
Law enforcement officers responded in force to a residence on Puckett Road.
Highway 98 crash
A 64-year-old Crawfordville man was seriously injured in a one-vehicle crash Monday afternoon after
authorities say he fainted behind the wheel. Willie M. Lightfoot Sr. was driving westbound on U.S. 98 around
3:40 p.m. when he blacked out due to health issues, according to a report filed by Florida Highway Patrol
-Sgt. S.A. Hooppell. His-vehicle'; a 2005 Suzuki Forenza,--ran off the roadway and "went out-of-controt,"
Hooppell said. The vehicle hit a cabbage palm tree stump and overturned onto its top. He was transported to
Doctors' Memorial Hospital (DMH). Also responding to the scene were personnel from the Taylor County
Sheriff's Department, Taylor County Fire-Rescue and DMH Emergency Medical Services. Shown above,
authorities speak to a witness.
County will review site plans
for public boat ramp Thursday
An informational meeting
has been scheduled for
Thursday to discuss updates to
the planned public boat ramp at
the former Ideal Marina site in
The meeting will begin at
6 p.m. at the Steinhatchee
According to County
Administrator Jack Brown, the
purpose of Thursday's meeting
will be to inform residents
about updates to the site plan as
the county prepares to apply for
its permits to begin work at the
A similar meeting held in
October, just days before the
county closed on the property
for $2,54 million, drew about
The site includes riverfront
property at the former marina
site along with the parcel north
of Riverside Drive between 2nd
Street East and 1st Street East.
It also includes a number of
existing boat slips.
A core team, including
county staff along with
citizen ,representatives, was
established to help oversee the
process of permitting and
constructing the boat ramp and
the associated facilities.
New $23 million
bridge to span
The Florida Department of Transportation is moving forward
with plans to replace the two bridges on U.S. 98 crossing the
Aucilla River, a project expected to take up to two and a half years
and cost $23 million.
The existing bridge, along with the overflow bridge, will be
replaced by a single, 1,365-foot long bridge, which will be built up
to 12 feet higher than the existing one.
The new bridge will still be two-laned but will have 10-foot
wide emergency lanes and solid concrete barrier walls.
"It will replace the old bridges that were built in 1952 and are
considered structurally and functionally obsolete," FDOT Public
Information Officer Gina Busscher said. "The existing bridge is
safe to drive over now but needs continual maintenance to keep it
A temporary bridge will be built on the south side of the existing
bridge and traffic will be switched to it while the old bridge is torn
down and replaced, she added.
According to Busscher, plans are to open bids on the bridge
project in June and construction would begin three to four months
*, Please see page 5
According to officials, the
plan calls for the project to be
completed in five phases, with
the first being the purchase of
The entire project is expected
to cost approximately $1
million and the phases will be
completed as funding becomes
Phase 2 of the proposed plan
includes the construction of the
boat ramp (adjacent to the
intersection of Riverside Drive
and 1st Street East) along with
dirt work on the riverside of the
property, including limerock
parking facilities with 50 to 60
spaces. The projected cost is
$300,000. At the last meeting,
Brown said they hoped to have
the ramp ready for use by this
In order to maximize the
potential parking spaces, the
conceptual plan calls for the
rerouting of State Road 51
(Riverside Drive) along 2nd
Street East to 1st Avenue North.
Riverside Drive at the boat
ramp site would be closed to
through traffic and would be
for boat ramp patrons only.

Local authorities are on the
look-out for a Berrien County,
Ga., murder suspect whose
father lives in Perry.
According to reports, John
Dennis Woods, 37, has been on
house arrest in Ray City, Ga.,
on Dec. 30,
remo ved John Dennis Woods
his ankle monitor with a blow
torch and disappeared.
Woods is accused- of
murdering 24-year-old Travis
Sauls in Ray City and then
transporting the body to the
Woods' family hunting grounds
in Madison County, where he
tried to bum it.
A family member discovered
Sauls' remains in Madison and
confronted Woods, reports
The crime occurred in
September 2009; at Woods'
indictment in November 2009,
a superior court judge granted
him a $150,000 property bond
and ordered him to be placed
under house arrest.
The company responsible
for monitoring Woods' ankle
bracelet did not report him
missing until two days after
authorities suspect he removed
"Two days before New
Year's, they had an alert come
over their monitoring system.
Company officials said they
had two guys with the same
first name and thought the alert
was for the other guy. They just
played it off and two days later,
on Dec. 30, Woods' mother
contacted the monitoring
company and said"he's gone.'

The Florida Department of Transportation is planning to replace the Aucilla
River bridge and an overflow bridge on U.S. 98 with a new, single bridge which
will be built up to 12 feet higher than the current one. To accommodate the gradual
slope required for the new bridge, FDOT officials have approached the county
commission about moving the entrance of Aucilla Landing Road and increasing its
elevation. The board is expected to return to the issue at its meeting on Tuesday.

Does your online store
support your child's
little league ball team?
By DAWN TAYLOR
President, Perry-Taylor County
Chamber of Commerce
I can't say it enough
how important it is that our
community shops at home
with our local businesses. In
fact, I don't just mean for this
community, but for everyone.
One thing I've noticed people
have gotten away from is
shopping at all.
During the holidays it was
with great disappointment that
I witnessed many avoiding
the stores and shopping areas
altogether in exchange for
sitting at their computer and
ordering items from their
homes. When people you know
mention that they are thinking
about purchasing something out
of town or from online, point out
to them that when they do this,
the following chain reaction is
set into motion which eventually
affects us all in a very negative
way. As business community
leaders, chamber members must
take a lead role in trumpeting
this crucial message.
Obviously, local retailers are
the first to suffer, but it doesn't
end there. These business
owners and their employees
are also consumers. If profits
are down at their own store,
they in turn will have less
money to spend at other stores,
reducing the profits of those
Reduced profits for local
businesses result in less money
deposited in banks, thereby
reducing the amount of money
available to be reinvested in the
Businesses that' ..are hit
especially hard by out-of-town
and online competition may
close, decreasing property
values of commercial properties
and personal properties' alike,
leaving less money for public
schools, street maintenance and
a whole host of other public
projects and needs. Eventually,
the entire local economy,
and every local resident's
pocketbook, suffers in one way
Having pointed out this chain
of events, ask the potential
out-of-town/online shopper if
they have checked to see if the
product is available locally. It
never ceases to amaze me the
number of people who have
lived in our area for years but
are unaware that they can buy
this or that particular item right
here. They just assume they
can't, so they shop elsewhere or
go on the Internet. If possible,
give these individuals some
suggestions regarding which
local retailers might have the
particular item they are seeking.
Let's assume that the item can
be purchased locally, the leading
concern will inevitably be price.
'' a .. "
Remind your acquaintances that
they should not assume that out
of town and online retailers can
always beat the prices of Perry
If price is their main concern,
tell them to at least give local
retailers a chance to match or
beat out-of-town prices. If a
local retailer can meet or beat
the price, then obviously there
isn't a problem. If the local
retailer's price is higher, then
tell the potential out-of-town
shoppers to remember to add
up the cost of gas and what the
wear and tear on their car would
be to drive out of town.
If referring to online
shopping, remind them that they
will not receive the customer
service normal .received from,
a local retailer in addition to the
cost of shipping. Adding these
hidden additional costs will
give them a more accurate idea
of what the "true" cost of the
item is if purchased out of town
Of course, it never hurts to
point out to them again that
service, before and after the
purchase, should be a very
important key. A local store
should be in the position to give
better customer service than an
out-of-town or online store. This
additional level of customer
service could help them to make
an informed purchase decision,
and to avoid buying something
that wasn't right for them.
Furthermore, remind them to
consider the additional time and
cost involved in getting their
purchased item serviced out-of-

Let's take it a step further...
does this out of town or online
store support your son's
little league softball team,
your daughter's cheerleading
team, your church, your local
Rotary Club, your chamber
of commerce and the many
organizations that are the glue
that keeps this community
While these are all
considerations that local
consumers need to take into
account, local retailers also have
a responsibility to keep local
residents shopping locally. They
must work to get their message
out, again and again. They need
to make their prices, all things
considered, competitive with
out-of town stores. They need
to provide better service than
out-of-town stores, before and
after the sale. They also need
to look at how they can better
serve their customers, including
offering extended or different
hours, creative financing plans
which may be convenient
to their customers, a larger
selection of merchandise, and
other incentives for consumers
to shop locally.
Remember, the two most
important things local business
professionals can do to keep
consumers shopping locally
are to spread the message
of why it is important and,
more importantly, to serve by
example. If local businesses

locally, they must also buy

What's in a name?
S -I ;. .* ,
In the early 80s, we lived in Live
Oak for a couple od years, enjoying'
the seasonal harvest of tobacco and
tomatoes, and the ebb and flow of the
Booking Desk in relationship to those
It was a phenomenon to wonder
During our tenure, we were introduced
to a dentist in town, a Dr. Mantooth.
It gave me yet another phenomenon
to consider. I still think often of Dr.
Mantooth who continues to practice
in Live Oak and has a few local clients
from Perry who travel his way.
When I met him, I didn't have the
courage that I have now, for I should
have asked: Is a man named Mantooth
compelled to be a dentist? Was his
father also a dentist? Did his mother
predict his career? Or was she helpless
in the face of this name, in the teeth
of the dilemma? Did she know when
she married his father, a Mantooth,
that they would produce Manteeth? Or
were they fifth generation dentists who
underwent a name change back in the
Colonial Days when people assumed
names that reflected their heritage: Mr.
(Black) Smith, Mr. (Tailor)Taylor.
When you become entranced with a
word like "Mantooth," it's difficult to
let go. Did they ever lose a tooth? Does
it set your teeth on edge? Did they
work tooth and nail?
I think of Dr. Mantooth...when I have
forestry questions and I'm referred to a
man whose last name is Woodson.
Suddenly, when he introduces
himself, I can't remember my questions.
I stutter and stammer because I now
have new questions: Did his mother
know what his career would be? Did
the trees name him, or was he lured to
the trees because of his name? Which
comes first, the chicken or the egg?
I think of Dr. Mantooth...when I learn
that the new doctor in this town is Dr.
Payne. Yes, it's spelled differently, but
it's got to be difficult to promise health
and comfort if your name sounds like
pain. God bless you, Dr. Payne.

to "Prude." To prove everybody wrong,
she left for a few months and came back

her parents accessories to the crime.
When I first married, I felt it necessary
to affrim my liberation by hyphenating
my last name so that it was Harrison-
Lincoln. But the more I wrote and
said the name, it sounded like a car

declared my liberation from liberation.
Names can, and should be, fun. But

Hills celebrate 50th
Kermit and Louise (Maddox) Hill of Perry were honored during
an afternoon party celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on
Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010. The two, who were married in Perry by
the Rev. J.W. Johnson at Pisgah Baptist Church, re-affirmed their
vows during the celebration. The Rev. Lewis Bullard Sr., who is
Mr. Hill's brother-in-law, officiated.
The party was held at the Perry Woman's Club on Jefferson

dinner and live entertainment by A & L Express. Leslie Hill,
daughter-in-law of the couple and her sister, Kathy Simmons,
provided decorations for the celebration, while Kim Simmons
acted as family photographer.
The Hills are the parents of three sons: Stacy (and Leslie) Hill
of Mobile, Ala., and Edward Hill of San Antonio, Texas, who
, holed the anni ersary celebration; and Dwayne Hill of Winter
HaTen. They hae :ix grandchildren and one great grandchild.

FLOYD A. HUTTON
Floyd A. Hutton was born March 8,
1951 and raised in upstate New York.
He passed away Jan. 5, 2011 in Homer,
He grew up hunting and fishing
with his father and these skills became a
focus in his life. After graduating from high school he served
2 years in the US Navy, in Texas.He hitchhiked to Alaska in
1975 to hunt and fish with a buddy who had moved there.
He fell in love with Alaska and stayed on. He lived and
worked on a dairy farm in the Wasilla area for 2 years, then
moved to the Kenai Peninsula.
He commercial fished for many years beginning
in the crab heydays of Kachemak Bay. Floyd also seined
and longlined from Southeast Alaska to Togiak. In the late
1990's Floyd ran a charter boat out of Valdez for a few years
and then was an Able Bodied Seaman aboard tugboats for
the rest of his working career. Floyd lived in the Stariski
area for almost 30 years before moving to Homer to be
with Annie. He spent any spare moment hunting, fishing or
talking, planning about hunting and fishing. He loved to take
people fishing, especially for their first time. His skiff usually
had family, friends, or family of friends aboard when he left
Floyd was a high integrity outdoorsman, frequently
assisting his companions to remember the rules and to take
game in a respectful manner. Floyd was rarely in a hurry
to get somewhere else, or when telling a tale. A legendary
storyteller, Floyd's stories were usually fact-based, but it
was always hard to tell where the facts ended and creative
He enjoyed making people laugh, and his quick
wit and expansive imagination assured success almost
continuously. Every new friend was an opportunity for
Floyd to practice his unique brand of leg-pulling. Although
he never perfected a poker face, he could lead anyone a
long way down the garden path before the light came on
that they were being tested on the gullibility scale.
Floyd was diagnosed with liver cancer in March
of 2010. During these last 9 months he visited family, had
a few fishing adventures, moose and caribou hunted with
friends and cooked many memorable gourmet meals. He
loved to help people, friends or strangers alike. His lifestyle
embodied generosity and compassion. A huge network of
friends will dearly miss Floyd. His life touched many and
improved most in the connection. He was 59 years old
when he passed away.
Floyd is survived by his wife Annie Cooper of
Homer, Alaska, his mother Joyce Gear of Perry, Florida,
brother John Hutton of Liberty Falls, Idaho, faithful dog
2my, his honorary nieces and nephews, and uncountable
A Celebration of Floyd's life will be held on the
