Carroll pledges to spread the word of community's resources
Taylor County a 'well-kept secret'
By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI
Taylor County's resources--
both in terms of its natural
assets and business
community--may be one of the
state's best-kept secrets...but
not for long if Lt. Gov. Jennifer
Carroll has her way.
Carroll pledged to spread the
news of Taylor County's riches
"across the state" during her
comments at the annual Perry-
Taylor County Chamber of
Commerce banquet Friday,
A capacity crowd of chamber
members and community
leaders filled Perry Elks Lodge
to hear the lieutenant
governor's speech and to
celebrate another year of
"bringing business, industry
and professional men and
women together to work
toward a better tomorrow for
everyone," Chamber Director
Dawn Taylor said.
Carroll said it was time to
"put pen to paper and look for
solutions. We want to be the
leading state in the country in
terms of job creation. Both the
governor and I are reaching out
across the country to businesses
and saying 'come to Florida'.
The climate is ripe this year to
change the corporate tax rate
and believe me, when a
business hears we are looking
to do that, they are listening."
In his speech, Chamber
Board Chairman David
Sullivan said the theme of
this year's banquet,
was a salute to his service
during the Air Force.

entered the United States Air
Force and it gave me the

BACK TO THE FRONT BURNER
Among my finer physical features are
my ear canals which apparently could
be in Ripley's Believe It Or Not for they
look a lot like Ramen noodles. They
curl and twist, defying ,trespassers.
My family doctor in Perry first
discovered my unusual canal system
and immediately lamented how the
routes twisted and turned. He had to
stand on his head to get a look.
"These are the tiniest ear canals I've
ever seen," he said.
Although my waist and hips have
spread with the grand passage of
time, my ear canals remain trim
and occasionally dam-up-the-works,
which makes the world go around in
a nauseating way. When this happens,
I ask myself, "Why would anyone
willingly get drunk?"
When the canals are closed, I hold
onto walls for a few days, blame
the weather and the pollen--for they
could play a part, and refuse to read
medical advice columns because they
always end this way, "This condition, if
untreated, could lead to serious illness
or even death."
It's a wonder enough of us are alive to
cause population concerns.
Monday, when my tiny ear canals
had restricted traffic in all directions,
I stayed in the bed longer than usual
on a work day watching the world
flip from side to side like a see-saw.
Ordinarily, staying in bed longer than
usual on a work day would be fun, but
when you're not feeling so good, it's
There's another dilemma to confining
yourself to bed on sick leave. As the
prophet Job can attest, when you're
under the weather, your friends appear.
We use the term "friends" loosely.
"It's probably all that rich food you
ate all weekend." That could be true.
I had a great weekend and I ate great
food---not particularly healthy food,
but great food. Perhaps I deserved this
"You pushed yourself; you really
needed to rest instead of going non-

my body slowed me down since I wasn't

disciplined enough to do it myself...
But my favorite suggestions came
from a mother-daughter duo of
friends. "Just rub a little vinegar on
your stomach," said the mother. I sat
upright in the bed and looked at my
stomach. I was alone at the house but
even under those conditions, the idea
"Do what?" I said. Her advice was
repeated. "It's good for nausea."
I am convinced that nausea is one
of the worst sicknesses you can
experience, but I couldn't imagine how
a topical application of vinegar could
help a sick stomach. Plus, then I've
got to wash the sheets and everything
"You can also put vinegar in your
ear," she said.
Well, of course you could. I guess you
could put most anything in your ear:
diet soda, grape juice, vodka, but why
would you? "It could help," my friend
said. "I've read that it does."
"What do you read?" I asked.
"My vinegar book," she said.
"Put out by people who distill
and market vinegar, right?" I asked
Since I already had oil in my ear, the
idea of adding vinegar sounded too
much like a salad bar, so I backed away
from the suggestion as politely as I
Then her daughter chimed in. "One
of my friends had inner-ear trouble,

Well, now I have heard it all.
Clearly, I need new friends.
"And where does one get breast milk
if one isn't lactating?" I wanted to
"You can buy it or ask a friend who's
breast-feeding," I was told.
I know a couple of new mothers in
this town; for laughs, I should have
called them arid asked for a little breast
milk, but I just could not bring myself
to do it. If there is a black market for
breast milk, I don't want to know about
I may have squirrely little ear canals
and strange friends in My Hour of Need,

Although the Box Top collection is a year-round venture at
Taylor County Elementary School (TCES), the final winners for
2010-11 were announced last week and will be treated to a pizza
party this Friday with all the trimmings.
"TCES earned $1900--approximately $500 more this year than
last. We're so proud of the students, their parents and their
grandparents for working so hard to make this fundraiser
successful," said Angela Watford who coordinates the collection
for the school.
"We even included the teachers during the last two weeks of the
competition, promising lunch for the teacher whose classroom
brought in the most Box Tops. We're happy to announce that Mrs.
Amy Bethea won the certificate." Bethea was credited with 570
Box Tops and earned lunch from Rosehead Junction.
"Box Tops is free money for very little effort," Watford
reminded, "and remember, even though this is the last submission
for the 2010-2011 school year, please encourage students to
continue collecting and bringing them in. The students will receive
credit for the next submission (fall of 2011) which gives them a
jump start on the next school year."
For the spring 2011 collection, fourth grade turned in 3546 Box
Tops with Austin Waters as top collector with 995, Cameron
Mosley second with 536 and Erica Taylor with 317.
In fifth grade, 2565 were collected with the top students being:
Areon Mitchell, 452; Eli Morgan, 201; and Brandin Thurman, 182.
For third grade, the total of 2433 Box Tops produced these top
student collectors: Bradley LaValle, 519; Joseph Shoaff, 279; and
Theresa Rogers, 192.
The nationally-recognized program awards participating
schools 10 cents for each Box Top submitted in its efforts to
"enhance local school programs."

Why do you need a rain barrel?
Since lawn and garden
irrigation make up nearly 40
percent of total household
water use in the summer
months, the Master Gardeners
of this community urge
homeowners to consider rain
"A rain barrel collects water
and stores it for when you need
it most--during periods of
drought--to water plants, wash
your car, etc. They can provide
an ample supply of free 'soft
water' that contains no chlorine,
lime or calcium," said Debbie
She also has reports to show
that a rain barrel can save most
homeowners about 1300
gallons of water during the
summer months and into fall.
"Saving water not only helps
the environment but also
conserves your money and
energy," she said.
Further, diverting water from
storm drains can decrease the
impact of runoff.
Gardeners recommend that
you put your rain barrel where
you may not have access to a
spigot. "Collecting rainwater
in a barrel directs moisture
away from building
foundations," Ross reminded.
She has presented programs
on rain barrels at the Taylor
County Public Library and also
introduced the concept to the
Perry/Taylor County Chamber

"During a typical rain storm
producing one inch of rain in a
24-hour period, more than 700
gallons of water will run off the
average roof, an impervious
area of 1200 square feet," Ross
said. "A full barrel of water,
captured during that storm, will
provide water for 240 square
feet of garden space."
She noted, too, that watering
plants with warm water in a
barrel reduces shock and
damping off of transplants. If
you have shallow-rooted
plants, Ross said connecting a
soaker hose to your rain barrel
will extend the watering 8-10
hours before emptying the

Impaired drivers face hefty fines
Spring break is just around the
corer and the Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) wants to take the
opportunity to remind visitors
and residents in the Sunshine
State to think twice before
driving under the influence of
alcohol or drugs.
Driving impaired not only
puts everyone on the roadways
in danger, but drivers should
also know that Florida's DUI
laws have stiff penalties that
can leave you with an empty
wallet, said FHP Chief of Public
Affiars Capt. Mark Welch said.
"The FHP isn't against having
a good time. We just want spring
breakers to celebrate safely so
that no one has to go home in a
body bag. FHP does not tolerate
impaired driving, so drive sober
and drive safe."
Drivers under the age of 21
should keep in mind that if
they are caught with a blood
alcohol content level of .02
or higher, their license will be
administratively suspeqnd for
six months. A second offense
results in a one-year suspension.
The first offense for refusing
to submit to testing results in
a suspension of 12 months,
and a second offense results
in an 18-month administrative
According to the Florida
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles' Traffic
Crash Statistics Report 2009,
Florida saw more crashes
during the month of March than
during any other month in the
past five years. There were 224
fatal crashes in March 2009.
The Florida Highway Patrol
offers the following tips to make
sure that you and everyone with
whom you celebrate enjoy your
Plan ahead. Always
designate a sober driver before
any drinking begins, or take a
taxi or public transportation if
you plan to drink alcohol. A taxi
or bus ride is much cheaper than
a DUI citation.
Take the keys. Do not let a
friend drive impaired.
Mind your meds. Heed the
warning labels on prescription
medicine bottles because even
lgal drugs can affect your
ability to safely operate a motor
Dial *FHP (*347) on your
cell phone to report an impaired
