DMH


finances


remain in


the black

Through the first seven
months of its fiscal year,
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
remained in the black.
That was the news presented
by DMH CEO Richard Huth to
county commissioners, laying
out the hospital's financial
from May through December.
Huth noted high usage
numbers for the radiological
equipment the county
purchased for DMH, with the
the hospital averaging 402 CT
scans a month between
October and November, 62
MRIs, 198 ultrasounds and 113
mammograms.
"Those machines are being
used a lot," Huth said.
Also up in December were
surgeries, which Huth credited
with the arrival of ear, nose and
throat physical, Dr. Eric O.
Henson, who performed seven
surgeries for the month, as well
as Tallahassee Orthopedic
Clinic, which was performing
three surgeries a week.
Outpatient services continue
to generate the largest share of
the DMH's hospitals as census
numbers for admissions remain
low, Huth added.
Through December, the
hospital's bottom line was
$110,000 to the positive, which
was $22,000 below what the
hospital had budgeted for this

Teen still 'serious' after crash


A Taylor Technical Institute
(TTI) student remains in the
hospital following a violent
rollover crash that happened 16
miles west of Perry on Feb. 11.
A family member said
Achilles Brandon Mylonas-
Mantzanas, 16, had undergone
five operations since the crash,
but that he was "doing better."
Also involved in the accident
was TTI student Courtnei


Doyle, 16. Both are enrolled in
the Academic Career Education
(ACE) program.
Doyle sustained serious
injuries in the crash, but has
since been discharged from the
hospital, school officials said.
Mylonas-Mantzanas' injuries.
were deemed "critical" at the
time of the wreck.
The 'crash occurred around
11:35 p.m. on U.S. 98 West.


Mylonas-Mantzanas was
driving a 1992 Ford SUV
when, for unknown reasons, the
vehicle left the eastbound lane
and traveled onto the south
shoulder some 130 feet.
The SUV re-entered the
highway and the driver
overcorrected, Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP) Master
Cpl. M.S. Cross Sr. detailed in
a report on the crash.


"The vehicle started to rotate
clockwise, traveled 390 feet
overturning several times. It
came to a final rest facing
south, partially blocking the
eastbound lane of U.S. 98."
Mylonas-Mantzanas, who
was not wearing a seatbelt, was
ejected from the vehicle. Cross
stated that it was unknown if
the passenger, who was
wearing a seatbelt, was thrown


Have you ever seen such a happy fiddler crab? Volunteer Gwen Anderson (top left) donned the citom-made
fiddler crab costume and was an instant hit at Steinhatchee's third annual festival which bears the crab's name.
Held Feb. 18-20, the event attracted some 5,000 to 7,000 visitors. The Steinhatchee River Chamber of
Commerce sponsored a parade float that featured Anderson "trapped" in a crab trap. The entry won first place,

Both Mylonas-Mantzanas
and Doyle were airlifted to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Cross noted in his report that
the vehicle was "traveling
above the posted speed limit"
and that charges are pending
toxicology reports. Assisting at
the scene were the sheriff's
office, police department and
EMS.

seven in the third circuit.

Road grading


request denied

The Taylor County Commission recently denied a request from
the Suwannee River Water Management Distriet (SRWMD) to
assist the district in grading roadways accessing Steinhatchee
Falls.
The request was discussed during the board's Feb. 7 meeting,
but several commissioners expressed concern over "competing"
with private businesses by offering the same services.
County Administrator Jack Brown brought the issue before the
board, stating SRWMD had requested assistance in grading two
miles of district-owned roads.
"SRWMD has stated that the cost to mobilize the district's
resources for such a small job results in the roads not being graded
as often as the district would like to ensure adequate access,"
Brown said in a memorandum to commissioners.
"I spoke with a representative from SRWMD and informed that
in order for Taylor County to consider doing it, we would have to
be reimbursed for the cost. In speaking with [Andy] McLeod,

Coming together to



help the homeless


Dear Editor:
Many times I have heard folks
say,"We need a homeless shelter
in Taylor County." I have also
heard folks ask, "Do we really
have a homeless problem in our
community?" For those who
are not sure or maybe have not
noticed, there are many hidden
in wooded areas, abandoned
buildings, and walking up and
down our streets.
For some it is apparent and for
some, you would never know.
When the temperature drops, the
telephones of the local churches
begin to ring. Yes, it's true, most
of these churches do whatever
they can to help, but usually the


need is only temporarily met. It
is impossible for one church to
house and feed all those that are
in need. Well, the homeless and
the addicted are the ones who
the Lord has put on my heart.
For those of you who know me,
you know how passionate I am
about reaching out to hurting
people and it is my dream to
have a place where folks could
come for a warm meal and a
warm place to lay their head at
night.
On Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. at
Barclay's Restaurant, we will
hold our first meeting to begin
plans to make this homeless
ministry reality. It's not about


denominations, race or any
other dividing factor. It's about
human beings coming together
with one purpose and one
goal--God's creation loving
God's creation. It may seem
like a huge undertaking and
in reality it is. As we come
together and work toward our
goal, it will happen.
Please mark your calendar
and plan to attend. Bring your
ideas and creativity. Invite
your friends and family that
are interested in helping. We
will look forward to seeing you
there.
Love in Christ,
Mary Browning


Teachers offer appreciation


Dear Editor:
The third grade teachers at
Taylor County Elementary
School are so grateful for the
generous support provided
to us by the Perry Kiwanis
Club.
We have received birthday,
anniversary and Christmas
cards from members of this
hard-working civic club, as
well as bags and bags of school
supplies and rewards. This
means so much to students


whose families struggle to find
money for such expenses, and
to teachers who find it difficult
to instruct students without the
necessary supplies.
Mostly, however, we are
grateful for the appreciation
the Kiwanians have expressed
to us. Teaching children is a
rewarding, yet challenging,
profession. It makes all the
difference in the world to know
that the community values what
we do.


We are very grateful to have
been adopted by such a caring
group of men and women. You
have sweetened the school year
by your gestures of support and
encouragement.
With appreciation,
Lauren Busack, Sherri DuBose,
Kay Dudley, Kathy Everett,
Katie Fletcher, Tracy Hall,
Rene Heard, Cherie LaValle,
Katie Lincoln, Melvelyn
Putnal, Terra Simmons, and
Meridith Upshaw


Record catches in '11


Thus far in 2011, the stars
are aligned for bass anglers and
fishing in general. Tournaments
showcase record- and near-
record-breaking catches, and
we're hearing from around
the state about big bass and
impressive catch numbers.
On Lake Kissimmee, Tom
Rewis and Doug Chance
produced a five-bass stringer
totaling more than 40 pounds
to win the Tony Strickland
Memorial Tournament. While
on Lake Tohopekaliga, Gerald
Swindle's 80-pound, 13-ounce
accumulation of 15 bass over
three days came close to setting
a B.A.S.S. record.
Okeechobee produced a
four-day total of 106-pounds,
10-ounces for FLW Tournament
winner Brandon McMillan a
new tour record.
Zack Mack, from Tennessee,
caught a 14-pound, 2-ounce
Florida largemouth bass on

consider catch-and-release for
the long-term good of the stock.
The FWC's "Big Catch"
angler-recognition program
enables anglers of all ages to
submit an application for a
full-color, framable certificate
and a window decal to
memorialize their fishing trips.
The program allows people
to submit information about
memorable catches of any of
33 species of freshwater fishes
for recognition, based on
qualifying lengths or weights
(see MyFWC.com/Fishing).
As part of the public
input the FWC received in
developing a new Long-Term
Black Bass Management Plan,
one agreed-upon goal was
making Florida the undisputed
bass fishing capital of the
world. That title is heavily
influenced by communicating
news about outstanding fishing
opportunities.
One component of the plan is
a "Trophy Catch" program that
recognizes anglers who catch
really large bass and provides
incentives for them to report
and release their catch.
The plan isn't just about
trophy fish. All aspects of
fisheries management are being
reconsidered and fine-tuned to
create the best possible outcome
for anglers visiting or living in
Florida. Key considerations
include habitat improvement,
real estate values, improved
access to increase local business
opportunities, and streamlining
rules. Not lost in the plan is the
essence of creating safe and
sustainable opportunities and
the desire to ensure that future
generations value our natural
resources and perpetuating the
fishing tradition.
The FWC is teaming with
VISIT FLORIDA to promote
our state as the "Fishing
Capital of the World." We
are also looking at new and
exciting ways to integrate
social marketing and modern
technology to help families
find productive places to fish
and overcoming barriers that
prevent them from reconnecting

J Pac


When she walked through the door,
I didn't readily identify her as the one
who came to save the day.
She wore no cape with an action hero
monogram.
Instead, she had an i.d. tag identifying
herself as an employee with the school
district. .
She was in my office to' buy her own
birthday present, a subscription to the
local newspaper. "It was my husband's
gift to me in December," she said. "He
just forgot."
As we both laughed, stories emerged
--of all the birthdays in her family
which crowd around the Christmas
tree; of her dear, sweet mother who
faithfully attended the grandsons'
baseball games come rain, sleet or
snow; of her gifts teaching school and
befriending mothers; of good times and
bad; of a friend's death and our grief; of
disappointing grades as children tried
desperately to graduate.
Since graduation of 2010 delivered us
both from any additional high school
work, I--for one--was nearly delighted
that I would no longer be making
command performances at four to five
baseball games a week, although that's
been our routine for the last hundred or
so years. During the Baseball Seasons
of our Lives, days were extended by
three to four hours in the winter and
spring with concession stand duty to
accomplish as well as encouragement
for the student athletes. There were
fundraisers and tournaments for
the weekends. The calendar became
incredibly crowded with very few
nights "off."
What I never counted on, however,
was how much I would miss sitting
behind the fence with all the mothers.
Not in sub-freezing temperatures and
not every day...but as a general memory
with general camaraderie and obvious
benefits.
It may be the only reason I haven't
needed professional therapy.
Or maybe it was professional therapy.
Those of us who have never
retained the services of a professional
psychiatrist or counselor, take great
pride in that fact. We are the strong

ones, the mentally healthy among the
rest of you.
But the fact is, whether you pay for it
or enjoy a hotdog during it, you are in
therapy.
The people you spend your time with
become your support group--at the
.. baseball.field, at the bar, at the church,
at the sandwich shop.
Wherever you worship.
This week, I realized that while I still
have support groups left, I am going to
miss the sound of the bats. I am going
to miss that same music which has
played during warm-ups at Pace Field
for 10-plus years. I may even miss
flipping hamburgers and serving up
nachos.
I won't miss it enough to take a turn
in the concession stand, mind you, but
enough to remember that even when
the demands of the calendar leave
you dizzy from commitments, you
are fortunate to be in the company of
men and women who care about their
families, work hard to secure the best
future for them, and care about your
children too. Just because.
I am grateful that I've been in therapy
at Pace Field for about seven years. I
am grateful that commiserating with
Mothers of Boys has kept a good number
of us from committing senseless crimes
or leaving our families even though
they deserved it and we were entitled. I
am grateful that we cared and clapped
in unison, comforted and chastised,
challenged the referee and changed the
subject.
Good things happened behind the
fence, while good things happened on
the other side of the fence.
Now the fence is a little obscured
by the distance, but I can still see the
Mothers of Boys waiting for the home
runs of life: college graduations,
careers, and only when the time is right,
another generation to worry about.
About the time we mothers are moved
to assisted living facilities, these boys
may finally be able to make their own
sandwiches and find their shoes.
Then we can smile, because there
were days behind the fence, when we
wondered if it would ever come true.

Grandparents, parents play pivotal role


with bullies, toadies and victims today


By DELORES WALKER
According to Ralphie of "The Christmas Story" fame, there are
bullies, toadies and victims. Bullies rule with their mouths, toadies
carry out the dirty work and victims are on the receiving end of the
first two. As you know if you've watched the classic Christmas
movie, Ralphie decides he doesn't like the role of victim so he
turns the table on the bully and, much to his surprise, finds the
bully is a bag of hot air who turned-tail and cried like a baby when
confronted. Sad to say, Ralphie spent considerable time enduring
his place as a victim before he chose to address the issue.
Move forward from the 50s to today and, lo and behold, you'll
find this same scenario carried out on a daily basis, particularly in
the halls of our public schools. I know of what I speak having
taught school for decades as well as having grandchildren who
attend at the present time. The method of bullying may have
changed somewhat but the message remains the same: "I'm big and
bad so I have the right to rule over you".
So many times we watch news reports and gasp in horror at the
cruelty inflicted upon innocent children just because they don't


measure up to someone's faulty sense of right and wrong doing.
Major topics of justification for their behavior can range from
clothes having the wrong label to the way one speaks. Say it's not
so, you might be thinking: could a person truly obsess over the
choice of clothing?! Yep, you've got it, ask any teenager around
and chances are they will relate a tale or two about a friend or even
them having to face this challenge daily.
As I reflect on my school days some 50-plus years ago, I fail to
recall a single time someone inspected the label of my clothing to
see if I was "part of the in crowd." Actually, they would have
encountered failure finding a label since my mom was the
manufacturer of most of my outfits. Truth be known, most of us
wore those homemade originals so the pressure to "dress
accordingly" wasn't a huge issue. I must confess I took great pride
in a store-bought outfit and the coveted pair of black and white
saddle-oxfords was a dream come true but....it never gave me the
right to stand superior over those who didn't have them.

Ms. Judy Paris Asbell, 67 of Brunswick passed away at

family.
Ms. Asbell was born in Camp Blanding, Florida, on June
12th, 1943. She is the daughter of the late Charles Norman,
Sr. & Claudine Butler Paris. She grew up in Perry, Fl, and
after graduating high school, she married Rick Asbell, her
husband of 27 years. She lived in Atlanta before moving
to Brunswick in 1971, where she became a fixture on the
town's south end and was known fondly as "Mama Judy."
Along with being a homemaker, she worked at Mock's IGA,
American National Bank and Barnett Bank. She became
a unit coordinator at Southeast Georgia Regional Medical
Center and retired in 2008. In her spare time she enjoyed
crocheting and working with miniatures.
Ms. Asbell is survived by her adoring children, Tinker
(Jeannie) Asbell and Robert (Candy) Asbell, both of
Brunswick; her sister Esther (Ron) Smith of Amarillo, TX;

a month.
They have since moved
again to another office at a
quarter of that price.
The commission's policy


states any funding requests

Page made a motion to hold

point in the year.
Commissioner Pam Feagle
expressed concern, stating that
the hospital boasted a $918,000
net gain for the previous fiscal
year; while was only at
$110,000 through seven
months of this year.
Huth said the hospital
budgeted for a smaller net gain
this year--$500,000--and there
have been additional expenses
so far this year, namely the
acquisition of the former
Nature Coast Regional Surgery
Center and establishing new
physicians, Henson and Dr.
Blain Payne, DMH's new
family practice doctor.
The hospital has also paid
$200,000 toward its line of


LET'S TALK
Continued from page 3
Having inherited sewing
ability from mom, it seemed a
natural thing to make my
children's clothing. My
daughter, Vickie, has an easy
going personality that allowed
whatever if any negative
comment to pass right over her
head and I don't remember her
ever complaining that she
would "just die" if she didn't
have a certain pair of jeans. My
son, Edward, who came along
10 years after his sister was
more in tune with labels so
when he needed the $100 jeans,
I suggested he get a job to
afford his lifestyle. He did, and
true to his inner-longing he
wore them proudly. The
difference was both teenagers
were accepted for who they
were not what they had.
I find my grandchildren face
a different set of rules.
Shopping at the "in store is so
very important. You are
expected to conform to style
while not daring to copy
someone's style.
Granddaughter Tori informed
me recently she wanted to have
her hair cut but couldn't since
another girl at school would


credit this year, Huth said, with
accounts payable down to
$250,000, compared to $1.2
million when he first started at
DMH.
When Feagle asked if he felt
the hospital was "financially
sound," Huth said he did.
He added that the upcoming
year would be the "payoff
year" for the investments DMH
made.
Huth said the biggest threat
facing the hospital was the
possibility of additional state
cuts to Medicaid. Last year the
state cut seven percent from
Medicaid, but exempted rural
hospitals such as DMH.
If DMH had not been
exempted, the cuts would have
cost the hospital hundreds of
thousands of dollars, Huth
said.


say she was copying her. Bears
and lions and tigers, oh my!
More like bullies, toadies and
victims, oh my!
Okay, here's my take on this:
we have a real social problem
when a person is judged and
found wanting based on an
article of clothing. So where do
we look for a solution? Like
most solutions it is found in
solid teaching that encourages
young and old alike to "like"
themselves. You know what I
mean. I'm okay and you're okay
and the differences make life
exciting. As parents and
grandparents we have the
privilege and responsibility to
guide these young ones through
the perils of life.
We don't have success when
we dismiss the issues they
encounter at school as trivial.
Our concern will gain their
trust and even if we fail to
solve the problem they will
know we cared enough to
listen. Much to our sorrow it's
not uncommon to hear about
those precious children who
found this an impossible
situation and decided the only
way out was to take their life or
perhaps end the lives of their
tormentors. We must show
them a better way.


Florida, an 'Ultimate


Fishing Town, USA'


AS I SEE IT
Continued from page 2
with nature.
Another great opportunity
for Florida fishing
communities is to tout
themselves in the World
Fishing Network's "Ultimate
Fishing Town USA"
competition (www.WFN
FishingTown.com). Folks can
nominate their town, and
people across America will
vote for the winner. The
winning town receives a
$25,000 grant for a fisheries
improvement project, and a
half-hour television show
dedicated entirely to fishing in
its community.
The World Fishing Network
made Florida its own region
because we have such
numerous and diverse
resources. Since each of the
seven regions will have their


top two vote-getters in the
runoff, Florida will have two
finalists. Nominate your town
now and publicize the value of
your unique fishery resources.
As chairman of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and an avid
outdoors person who grew up
around the Everglades, I
understand that the quality of
fishing reflects the quality of
living.
Florida's saltwater and
freshwater fisheries are world-
class, thanks to great resources
and responsible management.
We should be proud of all the
jobs the fishing industry
creates, and we should marvel
at how fishing can move you
from sighs of relaxation as you
unwind, to shouts of elation as
you catch another Florida
trophy, to smiles of satisfaction
as you release it to perpetuate
the experience.

awards at cook-off


FIDDLER CRAB FESTIVAL

everywhere in between. Things
went really well. The 'Swamp
Water Cook-Off is shaping up
to be one of our biggest
attractions. We had 33 different
entries and sold out of our
commemorative mugs people
could purchase to sample all
the entries. We doubled our
order from last year and still
ran out, even before sampling
began. All totaled, we sold
almost 1,200 mugs."
Shelly McDaris swept the
award categories for the cook-
off, taking home first place in
the stew division, Peoples'
Choice and Best Overall.
Additional winners will be
announced late this week; as


well as parade award
winners.
"The main purpose of the
festival was to bring business
to town during what is
traditionally a slow season and
that's just what happened. We
also hope that once people
come and visit Steinhatchee,
they will want to come back."
Patty Zurbrick and Audrey
Switalski also shared co-chair
honors with Wessels.
The event is hosted by the
Steinhatchee River Chamb zr of
Commerce.
"But of course, if it weren't
for all the volunteers and'
committee chairs, this never
would have happened. And the
participation of our sponsors
has been wonderful," Wessels
said.

County concerned about competing with local businesses


GRADING REQUEST
Continued from page 1
director of public works, he
stated our road graders go right
by this location during our
normal grading cycle. Mr.
McLeod has stated that he
could easily do [the work] for
cost reimbursement. I have
discussed the matter with
[Tammy] Taylor, director of


finance. She said that it is a
direct cost reimbursement that
can be invoiced directly to the
district and the money put
back into the public works
account."
"Assistance by the county
would limit costs to the district
to mobilize for such a small job
and provide better access to the
users of this public land,"
SRWMD Executive Director


David Still said in a letter to
Brown about the request.
"The district is willing to pay
for this service if required, by
the board of county
commissioners. We would
require notice of the grading
and agreement on the
maximum amount of potential
charges each fiscal year for
budgeting purposes."
During the commission's


discussions on the request,
however, several
commissioners expressed
concerns over the fact that there
are local businesses which
could offer similar services to
what the county would be
doing.
Ultimately, Commissioner
Mark Wiggins made a motion
to deny the request, which
measure passed unanimously.

THERE'S ALWAYS


Coffee with




a cowboy


.By DEBORAH SHEFFIELD
Shady Grove columnist
Arriving at one of our local restaurants early--I waited
anxiously for the Shady Grove visitor--who traveled here all
the way from the state of Washington. But right on time,
Richard Hatcher, Shady Grove resident, "council" member,
and the visitor's good friend, walked in with the man who is a
real-life cowboy and also a writer, singer, poet, husband, father,
grandfather--all in one...Mr. Don McClure.
What comes to mind when you hear, "Cowboy?" Well--Mr.
McClure is so much of that...and so much more! Breaking
a wild horse was commonplace for
him as a younger man. Staying
nights out on the range driving
cattle in those long cowboy coats,
hats and split cowhide boots while
eating "chuck wagon chow" by
campfire have been among his
f creal-life cowboy experiences for
70 years. Even now, he thinks
nothing of plunging down the side
of a steep rocky mountainside (on
a sure-footed horse, of course) to
round up straying cattle down in
S a gully. According to the Seattle
Times, Mr. McClure is among
the "last cowboys" of the great
Northwest (Feb. 22, 1987). Many
men age 83, and often younger, are
in full retirement and easy chairs;
but Don McClure is ready to return
home to help with the winter cattle
drive--moving the animals from the
colder areas to the warmer river
area where there is no foot of snow
nor pine needle poison to graze--all
so they can be fed hay until April
and the calves are born.
As I sat amused at his light-
Don McClure hearted humor and good-natured
cowboy country songs at the Shady
Grove "Econfina Opry House" (article published last week), I
soon realized there was more to this quiet man than his boots,
belt buckle and cowboy hat! Embarrassed, that the beginning
of coffee with the cowboy was stilted, I was nervously uncertain
at the quiet pauses in conversation. But then he responded to a
question about his wife, whose acquaintance I had the pleasure
of making at the "Opry." Rather than merely tell me how long
they have been married or how wonderfully hardwdiking she
can be, he turned to a page in his book of poetry, "Family,
Friends, and Funny Stories: Memories in Poem and Prose." I
firmly believe that poetry is to be heard, so I asked if I could
read the poem aloud. He nodded with approval, so I began
reading his poem written for Mrs. McClure, "The Cowboy's
Wife."
The anxiety lifted immediately as the poetic rhythms
unfolded there with him over a cup of fresh decaf. The poem
reveals a beautiful tale of love, courage and giving...and an
appreciation for it all. This was the icebreaker of the entire
afternoon, the anxiety dissipated. Then he asked me to read
another poem, then another as we sipped our coffee. The
poems tell a story (narrative) but are lyrical too...stories of
tribute that sound like music when read. I was truly amazed
and in awe that this seemingly reserved and truly authentic,
83-year-old cowboy and rancher (from so far away) possesses
a kindly understanding heart and a pen that can reach the soul.
His poems certainly reached mine.
His other book, "The Homesteader's Son," tells the history
of his northwest and of his soil nourished with the sweat of his
brow and of the wide open space he so loves. While reading his

Disciple Now 2011
welcomes the Atlanta-based
band "Echoing Angels" for
back-to-back performances
during the two-day event Friday,
Feb. 25, and Saturday, Feb. 26.
Local youth and their families
are invited to take part in the
rally, which will be held in the
Taylor County High School
gymnatorium.
Echoing Angels will perform
at 7 p.m. Friday, followed by
guest speaker Brody Holloway
of Snowbird ministries.
On Saturday, all local youth
are invited to participate in team
games and a pizza blast, starting
at 2 p.m.
The band returns to the stage
that evening at 7 p.m., followed
by Holloway.
Local churches, the Taylor
Baptist Association and
Fellowship of Christian
Athletes, sponsor the event.
Echoing Angels is composed
of five members: Trey
Heffinger, vocals; Shannon
Cochran, guitar; Jon Poole,
drums; Josh LeBlanc, bass; and
Neil Tankersley, keyboards.
The band has this to say about
its new self-title ablum:
The sophomore outing for
the Atlanta-based act isn't
just a diary exposing the
five members' extremely
personal emotions, but also
a springboard to solace for
listeners encountering hardship
across any spectrum.
"Right after our first record,
You Alone, we hit the road and
at that point we asked ourselves
what this ministry was all
about," notes beat keeper

Winning entries from the
fourth annual Short Story
Contest sponsored by Friends
of the Taylor County Public
Library are now available in
a commemorative booklet,
"Taylor Tales," Volume IV.
Editions are $5 each and
will be available at the public
library starting Monday, Feb.
28. Proceeds benefit the Friends
of the Library.
Winning stories from the
youth, student and adult
divisions are included:
Youth: first place, "The
Hunter and the Hounds," by
Michael J. Padgett; and second


place, "A Little More than a
Soccer Ball" by Brooke Hicks;
along with honorable mentions
"Untitled" by Nicholas Padgett
and "The Ultimate Vacation" by
Drayton Pegg.
Student: first place, "The
Face on the Paper" by Rachel
Lark; second place, "Bridget"
by Molly Wilson; and honorable
mention, "Of Mountains and
Anthills" by Maisie Wilson.
Adult: first place, "Fleeting
Escape" by Shasta Williams;
second place, "Painter Cat" by
John Dorman; and honorable
mention, "The Cure" by John
Dorman.


Though most artists would
quickly brush unflattering facts
under the rug, the band's merit
was confirmed time and time
again on the road by faithful
followers who never gave up on
the meaningful modem rockers
(who are now splashed with a
hearty dose of soul). In fact, by
airing their dirty laundry so to


economy and are just dealing
with all sorts of roadblocks,"
said front man Heffinger.
"Broken marriages are a
huge topic we've encountered,
kids dealing with their parents
fighting and even wider issues
like the tragedies of Haiti and
Hurricane Katrina. The song
'(Love) Way of Life' takes
all of these ideas into effect to
remind believers to constantly
build one another up instead of
just waiting for a tragedy to start
lending a hand. Even though
we're a Christian band, life isn't
always roses and candy, but
getting mud in your face, makes
you that much stronger."
With all the pieces to the
group's career and everyone
sounding more muscular than
ever before, the players' visions
have been refined to the purest
place any faith-based band


could desire.
Put plain and simply, the
self-titled CD is meant to be
a mouthpiece of optimism,
patience and perhaps most of
all, perseverance in God's plan
for each and every listeners'
life.
"The bond of unity in this
band is stronger than it's ever
been and this record is really
at 7 p.m. Friday during the an imprint of who we are and
lly and at 6 p.m. Saturday. where we're at right now," sums
Ily up Heffinger.

Meet Cowboy McClure Monday at the public library


COWBOY
Continued from page 1
work, I thought for a moment
of our ancestors here in our
little part of the world...our
grandfathers and grandmothers
who carved out home places
at the turn of the century;
through the mighty depression
and wartime, those who, too,
poured their sweat into the land
they loved right here in Taylor
County. Mr. McClure's book,
"The Homesteader's Son," has
intriguing, sometimes amusing
tale after tale of the adventures
of a life somewhat different
from what we may know
here--but sometimes also
faintly familiar. The books tell
the life of a hardworking man
who had the dream of a real
western ranch. Through work,
perseverance and sometimes
incredible struggle and
obstacles, he continues to make
his dream a reality for him and
for his family.
Without hesitation, Mr.
McClure asserts--with a quiet


pride--that he couldn't have
done it alone; for 62 years, he
has worked alongside his wife,
"Gerry" whom he calls his "life
partner and best friend." She
has created a home, chopped
wood, birthed calves and helped
to raise their five children while
teaching them to be kind to
their neighbors, faithful and
hardworking people. I didn't
ask a parenting question, but
he gave parenting advice quite
freely...easily understood,
but incredibly insightful and
profound:
...listen to what your children
have to say; spend meaningful
time with them--time that they
also find meaningful; earn their
respect by teaching and showing
them respect...
The cowboy rides a bronco,
knows how to rope a cow;
strings bob wire fence at 83; still
continues contributing to his
ranch and, through it all, has the
heart of a real dad. Although his
two sons, Gary and Davie, now
manage the ranch, Mr. McClure
continues to influence --from his


hometown PTA, the National
Cattleman's Association and the
top floor of the Rotunda to right
here in our little Shady Grove.
"We've had a good life, Don
and I; we are very fortunate
people," Mrs. McClure told us
at the Opry House last Thursday
night. It was an honor to have
met the McClures. And, I
am grateful for Mr. and Mrs.
Walker, their little "Econfina


Opry House" and friendship
with the McClures--for I
learned something invaluable:
We don't have to be the same,
think exactly the same, nor look
alike to discover, learn from,
and appreciate the good in one
another. Mr. Don McClure is
one of those rare good men
who has touched my life for a
moment but has left an imprint
that will last a lifetime...thanks


for reminding me that poetry is
so powerful.
We here in Taylor County
have a rare opportunity to meet
Mr. McClure in person. He
will be at our public library on
Washington Street, Monday,
Feb. 28, for a book talk and
signing from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
I enjoyed his tales of the
homesteading adventures,
but it was his poetry that truly


touched my heart...as I'm sure
it will some of yours too.
This is a rare chance to meet a
GEN-U-INE cowboy who is full
of expression, wisdom, humor
and a dignity unparalleled.
I hope to see you there to
meet this unique and kindly
cowboy who sings, tells
captivating stories and
writes words that will touch
your heart!
