A local convenience store was
robbed at knifepoint Saturday
night by a man who was not
only a regular customer, but
also who called the store owner
by his first name during the
robbery.
The suspect, Cleveland
Spradley, 42, of Mayo, was
located the next day and taken
into custody-wearing the same

the fire?

Taylor County was blanketed
with a thick layer of smoke
Friday, prompting many to ask,
"Where's the fire?"
The culprit was actually a pair
of large wildfires in Southern
Georgia, part of a series of
fires which have burned some
43,000 acres so far.
Florida Division of Forestry
firefighting personnel and
equipment from Perry have
been sent to help with the
efforts.
"The Florida Division of
Forestry has put together two
dozer strike teams to assist in
these firefighting efforts," DOF
Wildfire Mitigation Specialist
Chelsea P. Parker said. "These
resources will be coming
frodm the Perry, Suwannee and
Tallahassee Districts. Locally,
the Perry District has sent two
wildland firefighters, one safety
officer and two tractor/plow
units to assist with wildfire
suppression efforts in Georgia."
Of the two largest fires, one
is located in Clinch County,
Ga., and has burned 12,400
acres. According to the Georgia
Forestry Commission, the blaze
was ruled an arson when it
originally ignited in November
but dry, windy conditions
have caused the previously-
contained fire to spread beyond
the lines. It is currently 45
percent contained.
The second fire is in Bacon
County, Ga., burning 22,200
acres, and is also 45 percent
contained.
DOF District Manager
Erin Albury said in the Perry
District, which includes Taylor,
Madison and Lafayette and
Dixie Counties, they have been
responding to two to three fires
a day.

able to catch them small, and

Perry Police Department Ptl.
Jimmy Cash was dispatched
to Star Food Mart on North
Jefferson Street around 10:37
p.m. Saturday with a report of a
robbery in progress.
When he arrived, the owner
related that he had chased the
suspect out of the store "after he


came in armed with a knife and
robbed him."
A review of video
surveillance showed the suspect
entering the business with his
face covered by a blue bandana,
running behind the counter and
threatening the owner with a
knife.
The man then grabbed a
handful of cash out of the


register and ran out, with the
owner chasing after him, Cash-
stated in his report.
The owner said he recognized
the man as one of his regular
customers, who "comes in every
day."
Further review of surveillance
video showed that the man had
come into the store earlier that
same day, dressed in the same


clothes he wore during the
robbery.
An extensive search of the
area was conducted Saturday
night without success. Officers
passed the information on to

Ending of an era:


Jackson Furniture


to close its doors


Jackson Furniture, a true
"Mom and Pop" business that
traces its roots to the 1930s, is
closing its doors.
The furniture business was
started by longtime Taylor
County residents, T. A. "Ander"
Jackson Sr. and Fairby L.
Jackson in 1930. It has been
operated by their son, T.A.
"Tom" Jackson, since it was
rebuilt after the fire in 1965.
T. A.'s son, Andy Jackson
said, "It is unfortunate that
after all these years that Dad
is no longer physically able to
operate the business. He has
known the furniture store all of
his life. Except for his service
in the Air Force, this has been
his life."
Many residents of Taylor and
the surrounding counties have
traded with Jackson Furniture
over the years.

CAPITOL UPDATE


from the office of Sen. Charles Dean


Senate overrides Crist's vetoes


on farms and campaign finance


A-2 Taco Times March 30, 2011


MARK MORGAN. INC


Editor's Note: The following
summary of the Legislature's third
week of business in Tallahassee
was featured in Senator Charles
Dean's weekly newsletter, "The
Dean Document," which was
distributed Friday.
It was another busy week
throughout the Capitol and
especially in the Florida Senate.
In addition to the many bills
which passed on the floor this
week, the Senate also took
the time to override two bills
vetoed by former Governor
Charlie Crist. The first bill
was House Bill 7103, a bill
relating to agriculture which
required landowners to notify
potential neighbors when
they were moving in next to
a farm. It also removes the
ability of local governments to
put in place some regulations
affecting farms. The bill passed
the Florida Senate and House
unanimously last Session and,
without debate, the Senate
overrode Crist's veto by a vote
of 38-1. The Senate then passed
House Joint Resolution 7103,
which changes the effective
date of the bill. The Senate also


During spring and summer
months, as temperatures warm
up, nocturnal creatures that are
usually quite secretive become
more active and easier to locate.
This is the perfect time of year
to go out with children for a
night prowl.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and the Wildlife
Foundation of Florida are
working to reverse the growing
trend of our youth spending too
much time inside.
One way you can interest
your children in nature is to take
them on a night walk. We often
overlook the wildlife that come
out at night, and this is a great
way to get your children excited
about conservation.
Insects are particularly active
on warm nights. Try looking
for fireflies, moths and crickets.
An easy way to look at them
closely without causing injury
is to capture the insect in a
clear jar and cover the top with
cheesecloth held down by a
large rubber band around the
IV ....,.,. ^ ., B i


took up and passed a proposal
to override a veto on House
Bill 1207, a bill referring to
campaign financing.
Additionally, a bill which
provides an additional ad
valorem tax exemption to
certain deployed military
service members who receive a
homestead exemption is making
its way through the process.
Senate Bill 1502 provides that
on the days Florida's military
men and women are defending
U.S. freedom overseas they
will not have to pay property
taxes. Floridians approved
this measure in November
and this bill implements the
constitutional amendment
language.
The ambassador from
the United Kingdom, Nigel
Sheinwald, spoke to members
in the Senate Chamber about
the relationship between Britain
and the Sunshine State. He
focused on ways Florida and
Britain can work together to
boost tourism and trade. The
ambassador singled out Florida,
calling the state a "gateway for
the Caribbean and for Latin


rim. (Remember to release the
insects once you are done).
Cicadas are a favorite with kids,
as they are strange looking,
make very loud sounds and are
fun to handle.

America."
Senator Charlie Dean also
had multiple bills pass through
the committee process this
week. The bills included two
having to do with veterans,
Senate Bill 904 and Senate Bill
1110. Senate Bill 904 provides
an opportunity for residents to

veterans, while Senate Bill 1110
recognizes the anniversary of
the end of the Vietnam War.
Furthermore, Senate Bill 968, a
bill which streamlines boating
safety licenses, and Senate

minors; Senate Bill 890, a bill
dealing with public safety;
Senate Bill 292, a bill dealing
with mobile home parks; and
finally, Senate bill 1698, a

children and listening for them
is a lot of fun, especially if
you learn to call back. Chuck-
will's-widows also call actively
on moonlit nights. They sing
loudly, mimicking their name.
During the spring, you may also
hear our state bird, the northern
mockingbird, singing his heart
out to attract a mate. These birds
learn more than 100 songs over
the course of their lifetime.
Bats are also a favorite with
children. Watch for bats feeding
on insects near streetlights,
along woodland edges or over
water. They are active from
sunset to sunrise, although you
are more likely to see them just
at dusk when there is still a little
ambient light.
Flying squirrels are also
nocturnal. Though they don't
really fly, they can glide up
to 150 feet and are adept at
sneaking seeds at bird feeders.
They are more difficult to see
than bats, as they require forests
with tall trees from which to
glide.
Skunks and armadillos are
usually more active during the
night and are fun to watch as
they forage for food. Armadillos
can't see very well, so you can
sneak up fairly close if you are
quiet.
Frogs and toads fascinate
kids, and there are more than 25
native species in Florida. These
amphibians sing on spring and
summer nights, especially if
there has been a recent rain.
Learning their calls can be
challenging, but fun. If there is
a source of water nearby, you're
likely to find some. If yyou catch
any, don't forget to wash your
hands well after letting them go.
Remember to be respectful of
the animals you observe. Always
handle insects and amphibians
gently and return them where
you found them. Also, white or
bright lights at night can disturb
wildlife, so try to minimize the
amount of light you use. The
best method is to use a red filter
for your flashlight. Red lights
don't bother wildlife as much,

Midweek Muddle


Pockets



By SUSAN H. LINCOLN


I'm so old... that I remember my mother
handing me a dime when I left the house
in case I needed to make a emergency
call for help at a pay:phone. .,
In fact, I'm so old...I remember pay
phones.
The rule of my teenage years was:
never leave the house without a dime in
your pocket.
"Yes, ma'am."
There were plenty of other rules, too,
all delicately worded for teenage girls:
"Don't ever get in a car with a boy you
don't know...and don't let your friends
get in a car with a boy they don't know.
As for half the boys you do know, don't
get in the car with them either. Use
this dime to call me if you need help,
anytime, anywhere."
"Yes ma'am."
The instructions continued:
"Don't miss curfew.
"Don't look trashy, act trashy or talk
trashy.
"Don't forget that everybody knows
you and will tell me anything they see
you do or say that doesn't seem right.
"You're not just protecting your
reputation, you're protecting mine and
your Father's."
And the answer to this pocket veto
of All Things Immoral was always, "Yes
ma'am." But, suddenly, I wasn't sure I
was up to leaving.
When I was a small child, I remember
sitting on my grandmother's wrap-
around porch, swaying back and forth in
the porch swing which caught the early
summer breezes.
"Sing me the song," she would say,
and I would sing Perry Como's signature,
"Catch a falling star and put it in your
pocket; never let it fade away. Catch a
falling star and put it in your pocket;
save it for a rainy day."
"Sing it again," she would say, because
that's the only part I knew.
So I sang it again and again, while
the aroma of banana bush wafted
through the air in the thick Alabama
humidity, and the phlox spilled over
the bank toward the sidewalk. I'm not
often asked to sing publicly so those
performances of mine stand out as
memorable occasions. I looked then,
and I still look for falling stars....for my
pocket.
At our school carnivals, there was
always the Pick-A-Pocket girl in an
extended antebellum hoop skirt which
had been modified amateurishly with
pockets everywhere. For a carnival
ticket, you could pick one of her pockets
and win a painted Chinese fan or a spider
ring. I, however, wanted the dress and
was willing to let everyone else pocket
their winnings.
When my teenage years gave way to the
passage of time, the dime in my pocket


was replaced by All Things Maternal
and became a depository for pacifiers
and bandaids, house keys and change
fo:igumrball machi ,s .or;,other, pocket
expenses, as well as lipstick. Always,
lipstick.
Then there were pocket cameras and
cell phones...and, now, you couldn't find
a pay phone now if your life depended
upon it.
Pockets can provide great joy in this
life, often realized during the first cold
snap of the season. You grab your wool
jacket and find a $10 bill in the pockets,
perhaps left from the last baseball game
of the previous winter. Many times, that
$10 saves the day. Put one there now;
you'll be glad you did.
When I wash all my family's pockets
during the seven-day laundry service I
provide, I often discover an occasional
pocketknife, assorted golf tees,
sometimes a Driver's License and a
plastic fishing worm in Psychedelic Pink.
The prizes of a boy's childhood included
rocks and worms, fishing bobbers and
wads of chewed up bubblegum amidst
tiny tires which had been removed from
Hot Wheels. The worst, however, was
the dove. The son had one of those
many-pocketed vests that hunters wear,
and we both thought it was completely
emptied...until there was organic matter
on my clothes following a wash/rinse
cycle. Checking pockets twice is always
a good idea.
Recently, my attention returned
to pockets, again, while making
preparations for an upcoming wedding
which came with a "Black Tie Optional"
notation. I pulled out the husband's dark
suit...and hoped.
Hoped it would fit.
Hoped he would wear it.
Inside the pockets, there was an empty
Tic-Tac container, a program from a
wedding in 2008, two from funerals
(one dating back to 2006) and my
cousin's business card from his former
restaurant, The Vortex, as well as a few
biodegrading tissues.
Your pockets, you see, tell who you
are. They tell where you've been, what
you consider important.
But, no matter your choices, there's
always room for a falling star.
Like the $10 worth finding in a coat
jacket, a falling star is a treasure every
pocket needs. For the song concludes
this way,
"For when your troubles start
multiplyin' and they just might
"It's easy to forget them without trying'
"With just a pocketful of starlight...
"So, catch a falling star and put it in
your pocket; never let it fade away.
"Catch a falling star and put it in your
pocket; save it for a rainy day."
Good advice, worth pocketing.

Friday at DMH
In honor of April as Sexual
Assault Awareness Month,
Refuge House will place
more than 1,000 flags at
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
to symbolize the number of
unreported sexual assaults in
Taylor County.
The flag staking ceremony
will be held Friday, April 1,
starting at 2 p.m.
Refuge representatives
said, "Studies have shown
that one in nine women is
assaulted. According to these
numbers, Taylor County
has 1,145 victims of sexual
assault. In 2009, only 28
victims came forward. In an
effort to break the silence we
have 1,145 flags that have
the message 'Sexual Assault
Survivor' that will be display
on the hospital grounds
during the month of April."
Friday's ceremony is
open to the public and the
community is encouraged to

addition, if you want to attract
more nocturnal animals to your
backyard, consider installing
owl boxes, bat houses or a
shelter for tree frogs.
Learn about the animals
yourself, so that when you do
run across one, you'll have
some fun facts to pass along
to your kids when they ask
questions. Or, look up any
animals you find with your
children when you get back
inside; go to MyFWC.com/

Lab of Ornithology has a good

Extension lists frogs and toads.

Make your nature adventures
a regular feature, and your

Soon your children will be
telling you about the critters,

Poison Prevention Tips
Each year, more than 1 million calls are made to poison control centers in the United
States. Some of these calls result in death. Below are lists of things to do to prevent
poisoning in your home, information on common household items that may cause
poisoning,; and what to do in case of a poison emergency.
Storage Tips:
* Store medicines and products in their original containers.
* Lock medicines and household products where children cannot see or reach them.
* Use child-resistant packaging. Replace the caps tightly.
* Store household products in a different place from food and medicine.
* Keep purses and briefcases out of children's reach.
* Discard used button cell batteries (like those in watches) safely, and store any unused
ones far from kids' reach (alkaline substances are poisonous).
Prevent Poisoning from Medicines:
* Read the label before taking or giving medicine, and always administer medication with
the lights on.
* Use medicine only as directed by your doctor or the label and try to keep a record of
how many pills are left in a prescription container.
* Throw away any unneeded or out-of-date medicines these can go bad if they have
expired. Be sure that you get rid of them properly (so that a child or adult won't stumble
across them).
* Call medicine by its proper name, not "candy".
* Take medicine in a place where children cannot watch, because children learn by
imitating adults.
Prevent Poisoning from Products and Plants:
* Use household products according to label directions. Mixing household products
can cause dangerous gases to form. Ex: Mixing bleach and ammonia can result in toxic
gases.
* Never put cleaning products in old soda bottles or containers that were once used for
food.
* Never put roach powders or rat poison on the floors of your home.
* Store household cleaning products and aerosol sprays in a high cabinet far from reach.
* Don't keep any cleaning supplies, including dishwasher detergent and dishwashing
liquids, under the sink.
* Use safety latches for all cabinets containing hazardous substances.
* Keep hazardous automotive and gardening products in a securely locked area (ideally,
in your garage, if you have one).
* When you're cleaning or using household chemicals, never leave the bottles
unattended if there's a small child present.
* Keep house plants out of children's reach. Even if the plants are not poisonous, they
might cause choking. A few examples of toxic houseplants include: rhododendron,
English ivy, lily of the valley, and holiday plants such as holly and mistletoe
Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:
* Keep appliances, furnaces, fireplaces, and wood-burning stoves in good repair.
* Install a carbon monoxide alarm.
What To Do In Case of a Poison Emergency :
1. Remain calm
2. Call 911 if you have a poison emergency and the victim has collapsed or is not
breathing.
If the victim is awake and alert, dial 1-800-222-1222. Try to have this information ready:
the victim's age and weight
the container or bottle of the poison if available
the time of the poison exposure
the address where the poisoning occurred
3. Stay on thne and follow the instructions from the emergency operator or poison
control center.

^q Jabo recipes shared


Annie Mae's treasures found again


Friends welcome Lovel
Author and restaurateur Leo Lovel was the guest
speaker at the Friends of the Taylor County Public
Library Monday. Lovel has published two collections of
stories from his career as a commercial fisherman
entitled "Spring Creek Chronicles" and "Spring Creek
Chronicles II." He has also chosen select stories from
both volumes and combined them into "The All Florida
Reader," which is currently in 15 schools in six
counties, including Taylor County. The book represents
Lovel's effort to encourage students to write their own
short stories based on his belief that others who are
reluctant readers will be more willing to read stories
written by their classmates.


Last .month, my Aunt Anita
gave me a treasure...Annie
Mae's "Grandmother's
Memories" journal. Aunt 'Nita
apparently found it while
sorting through some things,
and sent it to me, by way of my
Great Aunts Nelda and
Virginia, on the afternoon that
we shared lemonade on my
front porch. I hope to have
copies made and bound for
each of. Annie Mae's
grandchildren by the day of our
Hendry-McLeod Reunion at
Lake Bird United Methodist
Church, Saturday, April 16.
Unlike our "Hendry Day,"
this gathering is relatively
small with no nametags
needed! The journal is a true
treasure telling about things,
we as grandchildren, never
knew about our Grandma. In
fact, while Great Aunt Virginia
read it, she kept saying, "I
never knew that"...and, of
course, I knew even less!

Green thumb?
Undaunted from my failures
thus far, 'I am determined to
have that "green thumb" of my
women ancestors. My sugar
snap peas are about 7 inches
high in my starter flat and ready
to go into the ground. Beets,
beefsteak tomatoes and mixed
bell peppers are seedlings now
too.
Monday, I built: the frames
for my raised garden beds from
scrap wood pieces, stray nails


and some simple comer
brackets. I am very pleased
and hopeful. My goal is to live
a sustainable life here in Shady
Grove, creating my dreamed-of
Hobby Farm (My Farmette)
and creating a
balance of
taking care of "9i
others while
taking care of
me too.

Women's
History
March is
the month set
aside to honor
the history of
women in S r
America.
There are so By Debo
many people
telling women "how to be"--
and this seems always to have
been:
"Hurry up...Slow down...Be
brighter...Uppity!.. .Think of
self last...Take good care of
your self...Be nice...Don't be a
doormat...Be selfless...If you
don't care for you, who
will?...Take care of you...Take
care of us...Have some self-
respect...Be submissive...You
don't have to do anything you
don't want to." Has anyone else
ever heard all those conflicting
societal messages? It's
absolutely exhausting and
chaotic!
Recently, talking with Aunt
Nelda around the kitchen table,


I said, "youthful beauty and
stupidity" seem to be the
blessings of our youth, while
"learning, wisdom, and
wrinkles with aches and pains"
go along with our aging. I
suppose this is
where
Grandma
Hendr y s
sa yin g ,
"Beauty is in
the eye of the
beholder"
seems right on.
Despite all the
struggles and
n111 ry heartaches in
-we getting older--
if given the
chance to be
h Shefehl 16 again--as I
h Shefiel w a s . I
wouldn't! My
hope now is to live a quality
life, right here in Shady Grove;
and, at age 47, I now know that
learning, loving, caring and
drawing upon my inner
strength and intuition about
what is healthy ...quells those
conflicting societal messages
fighting to tell us all how to be.

Telling her story...
The last entry in Grandma's
memory book was penned the
year before she died; she was
still telling her story at age 88.
It was in her own handwriting,
as were all her newspaper
columns for "Shady Grove
News" for more than 20


years...with wrinkles, aches
and pains, grey hair and all!
Although not perfect, to me,
my Grandma was beautiful
inside and out!

A Woman To
Remember
For those of you who
remember Jabo's at the beach,
this week's recipes are "Miss
Mattie Lue's"-- who according
to a newspaper clipping found
in Grandma's keepsakes, was
"the matriarch in her kitchen"
at Jabo's --a wonderful seafood
memory for many of us
courtesy of a woman from
yesteryear.

Miss Mattie Lue's
Hushpuppies
(for a crowd)
5 lbs. of meal
3 grated onions
13 (level) t. of baking
powder
13 (heaping) t. self-rising
flour
12 t. of salt
2 cans of cream (evaporated
milk, maybe?)
Mix well with water until a
batter consistency.

Jabo's Thousand Island
Dressing
3 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. pickle relish
1 c. ketchup
2 t. mustard
Stir well and serve over a
great Spring salad!

I've spent the better part of my
week to the sound of "varoom"
as they speed around and
around their house,` I'm okay"
with the sound as long as it is
mixed with laughter mingled
with kid voices shouting,
"faster, faster."
The thing that interrupts my
routine is when the happy
sounds are replaced by sudden
quietness. No matter what I am
trying to accomplish is
forgotten as I rush to the door,
heart in my throat and
butterflies doing the jig in my
stomach to see who is the latest
casualty. So far, the spills have
been minor with the dumped

Girls soccer team named


Academic Team Champion


The Taylor County High girls'
soccer team has been named
an Academic Team Champion
by the Florida High School
Athletic Association (FHSAA).
The program recognizes those
athletic teams whose members
have high grade point averages.
The only other 3A school
in the Big Bend Area listed
in this program was Florida
High.
The overall GPA for the Lady
Bulldogs this year was 3.281.
These grades were especially
difficult to maintain for soccer
athletes because their practices


ran from 5 to 7 p.m. and their
away games often meant they
had to miss classes at the end
of the day and not return home
until after midnight. The team
played up to three games each
week.
"When you practice late,
you're tired and it's hard to
study. I was taking a college
class that required a lot of
writing, and it was hard to write
late at night after games," said
senior Candice Story.
"We had to maintain a good
balance between what you
wanted to do (soccer) and what


you had to do in school," said
Shae Homer, one of this year's
team captains.
In spite of the challenges,
the players excelled in their
academic subjects.
"We had to make sure we
made time to study," said
Morgan Mixon. "Sometimes
we did homework on the bus."
"I told them from day one
that they are students first,
athletes second. It is a great
honor for them that they made
the list, because not every
team can," said Coach Thais
Woods.

ultimate master over machinery.
I must admit there were times
when I saw an approaching
log truck that I had to fight the
urge to close my eyes till the
danger passed, but I drew on
the strength of my big brother's
words and stayed reasonably
calm eventually becoming adept
at staying on my side of the two-
way road. Anyway it started
a love affair with driving that
continues to today. I feel the same
thrill everytime I set behind the
steering wheel, especially my
pretty white GrandAm GT. That


is, when I get to drive, since all
the granddaughters are infected
with the same malady that can
only be helped when they get to
drive.
Funny thing about man and
their machines, they always feel
inclined to name them. When I
think back on the vehicles that
have impacted my life it brings
up names like Old Bessie, the
Blue Goose and my favorite the
GT.
Old Bessie was a huge black
Packard we had when I was a
child. The doors opened from


the center and the inside was
like a cave. I never got to drive
the Packard, being too small but
there were many enjoyable rides
in her before she went away to
be replaced by a newer model.
The Blue Goose was a 53'
Chevy that had more character
than comfort. My husband
Edward bought him from our
brother-in-law for $125. He
was our means of transportation
for several years never failing
to deliver us safely to our
destination.
Now with the soaring price of

it seems downright cruel. Gone
are the days of taking a drive
purely for the pleasure. We've
become aware of the value of
carpooling with family and
friends as we make the short
trips we feel are necessary.
As I watch the unbridled joy
from our four-year-old great-
grand Leah as she takes her
turn behind the wheel of the
go-cart, I pray for a solution to
stop the break-up of a sound
economy that will ensure she

Lilliotts certified as


forest stewards by


DOF, Forest Service


Local landowners Robert
and Molly Lilliott have been
certified as forest stewards,
receiving a certification plaque
and sign in February.
The certification came after
the couple's participation in the
Forest Stewardship Program
offered by the Florida Division
of Forestry and the USDA
Forest Service.
'This program offers
landowners a chance to have a
forest management plan written
for their land
that will OR
help them
to manage
the land in a
sustainable
manner and
a schedule
of treatments
to improve
the land. The
Lilliotts have
engaged in
activities
that include: improving
and protecting their timber
resource, maintaining openings
for wildlife, prescribe burning
to encourage wildlife forage
and reduce fire danger, and
maintaining different age
stands of both hardwoods and
pines to provide better habitat
options for different species of
animals," County Forester Tye
Barry said.
"These actions show that


they are striving to be good
stewards of their land and all
the resources and services it
provides. The certification is
well deserved recognition of the
work they have put into their
land."
Barry continued, "A
management plan can be
tailored for several different
objectives depending on how
the landowner would like to use
their land. The uses that can be
chosen include timber, wildlife,
recreation,
-C, soil and water
conservation
and aesthetic
value. The
benefits of
the program
include a
'roadmap' of
how to manage
the land into
the future to
achieve your
objectives and
recognition as a Forest Steward
if the plan is implemented."
The stewardship program
is open to all landowners of
20 or more forested acres, or
to adjacent landowners who
would like to pool their land and
manage the lands collectively.
For more information on
the program or to start the
enrollment process please Barry

office, (850) 838-2286.

paper it's written on.


From cover to cover, the Taco Times is full of news,

sports, community events, classified and much more.

Get your 500 worth with these 25 good uses for a
newspaper once you've read it:

1. Temporarily block the sun from streaming in windows.

2. Spread sheets of newspapers out and make clothing patterns

3. Dampen and spread over window glass to protect it when you paint.

4. Line and protect closet shelves and drawer bottoms

5. Place folded newspapers on the floor as a mat for wet shoes or muddy boots.

6. Make fire logs out of old newspapers. Roll sheets of newspapers up tightly in the shape of a
log. Tie them tight with string and use them in your fireplace or on a camp fire.

7. Do you still have some old 45 or other type of vinyl records? Store them safely by placing old
newspapers In between each one.

8. Ball up half sheets and let Kitty play with them. Cats love the crinkling noise.

9. Place balls of old newspapers inside leather shoes, purses, and In suitcases. They help leather
items keep their shape. They also help deodorize them.

10. Use old newspapers to polish windows to a streak-free shine. Also great for polishing
chrome.

11. Your auto have a fluid leak? Place sheets underneath your car when it's parked in the garage
to protect the floor.

12. If your auto's parked outside in the winter weather, lay old newspapers on the windshield so
you don't have to clean off ice and snow in the morning.

13. Spread out sheets of newspaper between plants in your garden to keep weed growth down.
Cheaper than black plastic

14. Make mulch for yoUr garden.

15. Bring green tomatoes In the house and wrap them in old newspapers. Place them In a dark,
cool area, and they will ripen nicely.

16. Expecting a frost? Cover vulnerable garden plants with tents made out of newspapers.

17. Fold them over and kneel on them when you're working in the garden.

18. Transport fresh flowers in damp newspaper to keep them fresh longer.

19. Buy some glue, long sticks, string, and let your kids make kites.

20. Celebrate New Year's Eve with confetti made from old newspapers.

21. Let the kids keep busy on a rainy day. Let them make paper chains, hand puppets, or
costumes.

22. Make a kid's birthday party fun! Use filled balloons, flour, water, and strips of old newspapers
to create a piflata.

23. Wrap up glass and other breakables in thick sheets of newspaper before you pack them to

The assembled Perry Primary Students screamed
with delight when Batman and Spider-Man appeared
on stage. Spider-Man shot "webs" at the students,
pointing out that unlike in the movies, he had to create
a mechanical device to shoot his webs, something he
never would have been able to do if he hadn't paid
attention in school.


While Batman and Spider-Man talked to the students,
two City of Perry Fire Department clowhis attempted
to sneak up behind them. Fortunately, the students
shouted warnings and the heroes saved the day. Proving
there were no hard feelings, they all shook hands at the
end of the assembly.


Students
delighted
by Batman,
Spider-Man
Superheroes Batman and
Spider-Man paid a special
visit to Perry Primary School
recently to entertain a group of
honor roll students as well as
those with perfect attendance.
The event, which also
featured the City of Perry
Fire Department clowns,
was sponsored by Buckeye
Community Federal Credit
Union.
The students arrived in two
sessions of about 150 each, with
representatives from the credit
union congratulating them on
their efforts before opening the
curtain to reveal the surprise
guests.
After the excited roar from
the students died down, the two
heroes pointed out that neither
would have succeeded if they
had not paid attention in school
and studied hard.
Following the event, teachers
were given bags of popcorn to
hand out later in the day.

Change...Conform...Adapt


Chamber of Commerce keeps


pace with new challenges


"Change... Conform.. .Adapt."
This was the motto when I entered the United States
Air Force and it gave me the foundation for my future.
We have to be open to change and we need to be able to
adapt to the ever-changing landscape business owners
face on a daily basis.
The Chamber is an expert at that and I am very proud
to be a part of what is happening with our Chamber.
Our Chamber is a family of business leaders who
are working together for a better tomorrow. Through
the many networking opportunities, local events and
initiatives, we are striving to help make this community
a better place to live, work and raise a family.
You may not have known this, but our Chamber is the
only Chamber in the entire state of Florida that houses
its own Small Business Development Center office to
help the local business community.
Also, our Chamber is one of the only Chambers in
Florida that has a Keep America Beautiful affiliate
office within the Chamber to help with environmental
stewardship throughout our community.
We are 364 members strong, representing more than
5,300 people in the local workforce for Taylor County.
Our Chamber is the lead organization in promoting
tourism for the entire county. This past year, we secured
several tourism grants to assist with promoting our
county.
Our Chamber also brought home five Florida Festival
& Events Association awards for events we host in our
community.. .this was more than any other county in the
entire state.
The Chamber works hard to help the local economy
by hosting festivals and events in the county. In the
past nine years, the Florida State Bluegrass Festival has
shown an economic impact of more than $1.5 million to
the local economy.
The Southern Pines Blues & BBQ Festival brought
some 70 professional BBQ Teams to our county from
Florida, Alabama and Georgia to compete for the Tri-
State BBQ Championship as well as 135 judges filling up
local motel rooms to capacity. This event continues to
grow each year, making a significant impact on our local


economy.
These were just a few of our accomplishments. I am
very pleased to be in this position to help shape the
future and be one of the voices of our local business
community. We need to work together as a community
and as a Chamber to ensure -that the voices of all our
members and citizens are heard so that we can continue
to thrive as we move forward into the future.

Perry-Taylor County Chamber of Commerce Board Chairman
David Sullivan invites you to "Share Our Good Nature." The
Chamber continues to take the lead working within the local business
community to ensure that the voices of all its members are heard.
"Together, we can continue to thrive as we move forward into the
future."


New apartment complex breaks ground


After several years of
planning, designing and
permitting, Goodwill Industries
Big Bend (GIBB) broke
ground in February on a


15-unit apartment complex
for people with barriers at 800
Stephens Court in Perry called
the Goodwill Perry Village.
The complex will be located


just north of the Taylor Senior
Citizens Center, 800 West
Ash Street, on land that was
the playground for the former
Gladys Morse Elementary


School.
The GIBB Perry Village will
offer six, two-bedroom units
and nine, one-bedroom units.
All of the apartments will be


accessible for people who use
wheelchairs or other mobility
aids. There will be a live-in
manager who will be available
for assistance at any time.
All of the apartments will
include controls for lights, air
conditioning and door knobs
built at a height for wheelchair
users. The countertops, stove
and sinks are built at a lower
level so residents can cook
for themselves and do their
own dishes. The bathrooms
are specially made so they can
bathe themselves.
"These apartments will


provide dignity and positive
encouragements for those who
need a helping hand, but want to
be independent," said President
and CEO Fred Shelfer.
"These Goodwill units will
allow our residents to stay in
Perry, the town that they love,
close to family and friends."
Goodwill Industries Big Bend
is already providing homes for
more than 400 people in the Big
Bend area.
There are six apartment
complexes in North Florida and
four apartment complexes in
South Georgia.


Construction on the Goodwill Perry Village is underway and is expected to be completed by October. Funding for
the $1.5 million project was provided by HUD funds. The complex will be managed by Goodwill Industries of the
Big Bend.



Here we grow again...


The Perry-Taylor County Chamber of Commerce
welcomed 33 new members in 2010.
The newcomers brought the chamber's total enrollment
to 364 members.


The new members are: CJ Supreme Buffet, Tommie

Downtown


: business friendly


The City of Perry has
launched an aggressive
development campaign for its
downtown district---offering
hefty incentives for both
existing business owners and
potential investors.
Fliers detailing the incentives
have been mailed to all property
owners within the city's
Community Revitalization
District as well as all real estate
agencies in the county.
The information was also
forwarded to Enterprise Florida
and has been heavily distributed
throughout the area.
"We are trying to reach as
many potential investors as we
can," City Manager Bob Brown
said.
Under the incentive package,
the city will refund 100 percent
of city and county property taxes
on the increased value of real
property with improvements that
add 25 percent or more in value
to the property (and receives a
certificate of occupancy).
The refund will apply for five
years on commercial property
and up to an additional five years
for ground floor commercial/
upper floor residential
buildings.
"There are no dollar limits on
the refunds," Brown noted.
The Florida Enterprise


Zone will refund an additional
96 percent of increased property
taxes paid for up to five
years.
The city will also match the
investment in a new business


by buying and providing capital
assets for use by the business.
"In order to qualify for that
provision, the business must
employ a minimum of five
full-time employees (excluding


owners and their immediate
families). The average wage
of eligible employees must be
125 percent of the minimum
wage (currently $9.06). The
business must be open for


customers at least until 8 p.m.
five days a week, which may be
waived if more than 15 full-time
employees work. The city will
retain title to the capital assets
used by the business, which

a Strategic approach to



ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT


BY RICK BREER
Director of Economic Development
The Taylor County
Development Authority
(TCDA) continues to strive for
more and better jobs.
The economy continued
to be slow this past year,
causing companies to postpone
acquisitions, expansions, etc.
This continues to demonstrate
that any economic development
efforts need to be strategic in
nature.
Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt's
The Reserve at Sweetwater
Estuary was finally permitted
in December 2010. It is a
residential, commercial, and
golf course project to be
constructed between Dekle
Beach and Keaton Beach. Plans
call for 150,000 square feet of
commercial space, 400 resort
hotel rooms, 624 condos and
some single-family housing.
The golf course will be 18
holes and is being designed in
order to be certified by Audobon
International. Once construction
starts, this project will have a big
positive impact on the economy
of Taylor County.
The County, via the Airport
Advisory Committee (AAC),
followed up on the analysis of
development alternatives for an
airport industrial park by having
an initial study done on costs for
the selected alternative.
This report stated that
developing the airport could
have an initial price tag of $7
million. The AAC is presently
looking at various options for
both governance and funding.
Once the AAC reaches a
recommendation, it will be
brought before, the County
Commission.
The North Florida Economic
Development Partnership
(NFEDP), of which Taylor
County is one of 14 member


counties, has recently hosted a
very successful statewide rural
summit. And it also initiated its
first strategic planning session
covering its member counties in
North Florida.
The NFEDP is organized for
the purpose of coordinating and
marketing regional assets and
identifying issues that serve as
impediments to job creation
and increased economic growth
within the 14-county-wide rural
region. The strategic importance
of a regional organization grows
as more and more potential
project funding sources stress

in 2008 and has been integrated

plan and approved by the

FLORIDA'S FUTURE. NATURALLY.
TCDA has crafted an economic
development strategic plan and four committees
have been formed to assist in implementing the
plan: communications, business development,
infrastructure and workforce/talent


regional cooperation as a
gateway to application.
One of first initiatives of the
NFEDP was pursuit of a grant
to bring high-speed broadband
to our rural area. This initiative
resulted in the creation of
the North Florida Broadband
Authority (NFBA), which
was granted $30.1 million to
implement the application's
'"middle-mile" strategy.
The NFBA, in which
Taylor County and the City
of Perry are member owners,
has completed the design


Department of Community
Affairs (DCA).
The vision now becomes
a working document and the
process that Taylor County
used continues to be held up
as an example to other rural
communities in the state.
Foley Timber and Land opted
into the County's Evaluation,
Appraisal and Report (EAR)
process required by statute
every seven years. The master
plan created by Foley was
also approved by DCA. This
project, when implemented,


will enhance Taylor County in
many ways.
An adjunct to the Vision
effort and a priority of the
TCDA was the creation of an
economic development strategic
plan, now completed and being
implemented. A very successful
economic development
community summit was held
last fall. Four committees to
assist the TCDA have been
initiated: Communications,
Business Development,
Infrastructure and Workforce/
Talent. This collaborative effort
promises great rewards for the
community's future and the
sustaining of the quality of life
we enjoy here.
The Mayfield Biorefinery
pilot plant, demonstrating the
viability of cellulose as an
alternate feedstock to corn for
the manufacture of ethanol,
is under construction at the
Buckeye site. When completed,
there will be 20-25 University of
Florida employees at this plant.
This collaboration between a
premier research institution and
Buckeye (Taylor County) can
result in significant benefits to
our citizens over the next few
years.
The TCDA is bullish on the
future of Taylor County. There
are many reasons for this: the
Vision 2060, which was touted
as a model for other rural
counties by the former Secretary
of DCA; a strategic economic
development plan completed
and starting to be implemented;
the potential for a new industrial
park with installed infrastructure
in the near term; the presence
of the University of Florida in
our county; the continued work
on obtaining the financing for
the Perry Rail Extension and
the likelihood that the national
economy will continue to heal
during 2011 and beyond.

Sweet success for


Sweetwater



Estuary

The State Department of Community Affairs gave its final
stamp of approval in December to Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt's
planned golf resort development known as The Reserve at
Sweetwater Estuary.
The plan establishes a new future land use category on
approximately 1,291 acres of land situated along Dekle Beach
Road and County Road 361.
The approval was given after no one came forward during
a 21-day period set aside for objections .to DCA's decision in
November to approve the new future land use category.
"This was the big one," said Beverly Birkitt, an environmental
expert for the project.
Birkitt said a few issues still remain before any construction
start date can be set.
"We still have to modify our permit with the water
management district and the Army Corp of Engineers must
sign off on it but we don't anticipate any major issues. Make
no mistake about it, DCA's approval was the major hurdle we
had to cross.
"We don't anticipate any major issues," Birkitt said.
She said the plan going forward will be to get all permits and
approvals in place.
"We want to get everything in place so we'll be ready to go
once the economy improves," Birkitt said.
This was Pruitt's third attempt to get a development project
off the ground.
The latest plan still centers around a championship golf
course and includes 624 residential units, 400 hotel rooms and
150,000 square feet of commercial space.
The development will rest on 127 acres (or 9.8 percent of the
total property), along with 147 acres (11 percent) for the golf
course, while the remainder--more than 1,000 acres--will be set
aside for conservation.
According to the application, the densities for residential and
commercial uses will actually be less under the new land use
category than would be allowed under the current designations.
The application states that the proposed development is
primarily clustered in upland areas to create large tracts
of open space, protect environmentally sensitive areas and
promote ecotourism. The development area will consist of
nodes of development including a mixed-use town center with
access to County Road 361 where residential, commercial,
hotel/conference center, recreation, civic/public uses, road,
trails, boardwalks, kayak launching facility and supporting
infrastructure will occur.
A portion of the golf course, which will include an 11,000-
12,000 square foot club house, will be built east of County
Road 361 as will the high-rise hotel.
Hundreds are expected to be employed during the construction
phase. According to the application, the resort will create
approximately 685 permanent, non-construction jobs once it is
completed.

Airport upgrades take flight


Enhancements and
rehabilitation continues at
Perry-Foley Airport, which
dates back to World War II
when it was an Army Air Corps
training base.
The county recently
completed the design and
engineering for rehab of the
airport's primary runway--1836.
The project was funded through
a $150,000 Federal Aviation


Administration (FAA) grant.
An additional grant, valued
at $850,000, will allow for the
actual rehab work this year,
County Grants Coordinator
Melody Cox said.
She expects the county to go
out for bids this fall with the
work completed by the end of
the year.
In 2009, the primary runway
was re-striped and the Federal


Aviation Administration
agreed to extend the striping,
which allowed the airport to
accommodate small jet traffic,
Cox said.
As of March, all of the
airport's facilities '%ere leased.
"We have a full house.'" Cox
said.
Last year, the National
Weather Service installed a ne%%
weather station at the airport


The station included a new
generator, which will also keep
the airport's lights operational
during a power outage.
The airport's terminal building
was completed in 2006 and
%\as constructed to withstand
and remain operational
during Category 5 hurricane
wind.
The airport's Automated
Weather Obser\atzon S.stemn


(AWOS) reports wind, ceiling,
visibility, temperature, dew
point and altimeter settings.
Pilots may obtain the weather
and flight conditions via radio


communications several miles
from Perry.
The public can access current
weather conditions by calling
838-3526.

DMH checks-in with new



doctors and a new facility


The previous year has been a good one for Doctors' Memorial
Hospital, with new equipment installed and the purchase of a
medical office complex.
DMH, a 48-bed not-for-profit acute care facility, has been serving
the North Florida communities of Taylor, Madison, Dixie and
Lafayette counties since 1957.
The hospital is located at 333 North Byron Butler Parkway, just
north of Perry.
With CEO Richard Huth at the helm, the DMH ship is financially
in the black and working to increase the services available to Taylor
County.
In 2009, the Taylor County Commission agreed to spend $2.2
million to purchase a trio of radiological equipment for the hospital


and, by the end of 2010, it had all been purchased and installed.
The new equipment includes a 64-slice Aquilion CT scanner
and Excelart Vantage Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
system from Toshiba and a digital mammography unit from
Hologic, Inc.
According to Huth, the equipment now in place at DMH rivals
that in Tallahassee and surrounding areas.
In October, DMH purchased the former Nature Coast Regional
Surgery Center and opened the DMH Medical Plaza, which now
houses most of its physicians, including a handful of new doctors
such as Family Practice Physician Dr. Blaine Payne and ear, nose
and throat specialist Dr. Eric Hensen.
The plaza is located at 555 N. Byron Butler Parkway.

Going green for energy


In July, some 82,000 eucalyptus seedlings were
planted on 87 acres east of Perry.


Buckeye and the University of
Florida are continuing their joint
green energy research project as
they monitor several plantings
of Eucalyptus amplifolia and
Cottonwood, as well as several
other potential feed crops.
In July, Buckeye planted
82,000 eucalyptus seedlings
on 87 acres east of Perry near
the intersection of U.S. 27 and
County Road 30.
The new crop followed a
series of plantings in 2009 at
Buckeye's Energy Park, where
eucalyptus and cottonwood
trees were planted, along with
energy cane and switch grass
to test the various species'
production and cold-hardiness.
According to Buckeye's
Wood Supply Manager Michele
Curtis, the research is ongoing to
determine whether Eucalyptus
amplifolia is freeze-tolerant
enough to survive here.
"At this point, it's still in the
research phase," she said.
Planted in densities of up


to 1,245 trees per acre, the
hardwood seedlings will be
evaluated for a six-year period
to determine growth rates and
cold hardiness.
Seeds to grow the
containerized seedlings were
collected from University of
Florida research trees in central
and north Florida. The newest
planting is the largest ever from
University of Florida eucalyptus
seed trees.
The fast-growing trees are
expected to grow around 10 feet
a year and be ready for harvest
in five to six years.
Curtis expressed optimistic
about the possibilities of
Cottonwood. Following positive
results from the Energy Park
planting, an additional 10 acres
of Cottonwood were planted in
December next to the 87-acre
eucalyptus site.
The trees could become fuel
for the University of Florida
(UF) bio-refinery research
plant being built at Buckeye


or the company's conventional
combustion boilers.
Curtis said Buckeye will
continue to rely on pine fiber
exclusively for the production
of cellulose.
"Eucalyptus may become


an important energy crop, but
our process will continue to
need slash pine to manufacture
cellulose for our customers,"
Curtis said.
"We need pines and a new
source of sustainable energy."


New public boat ramp for Steinhatchee


After years of failed attempts
to satisfy the need for public
access to the Steinhatchee
River, there could be a public
boat ramp in place by the start
of the 2011 scallop season.
In October, Taylor County
closed on the purchase of the
former Ideal Marina property in
Steinhatchee for $2.54 million.
The 5.2-acre property
includes the riverfront 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.
The county's plans for the site
calls for a three-lane ramp with
piers and eventually parking
for up to 120 boats and trailers.
The project is expected to be
completed over several phases.
In March, the Taylor County

Commission received bids
on the Phase 1 work, which
is expected to include the
installation of a three-lane boat
ramp with piers and dirt work
on the river side of the property.
The parking lot would not be
paved in Phase 1. The projected
cost of the work is $300,000.
County officials are hoping to
have Phase 1 complete by June.
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.
Phase 2 of the project
will include traffic rerouting
improvements to 2nd Street


East and 1st Avenue North
along with the associated
intersections with an estimated
cost of $350,000.
Phase 3 would include the
riverside parking improvements
and roadwork for $200,000.
Phase 4 would be
the remaining parking
improvements on the north side
of the property for an additional
$200,000.
The project has received
support from individuals and
businesses throughout the
community, with more than
$10,000 either donated or
pledged so far.
Additionally, Foley Timber
and Land announced in
August that it would contribute
$100,000 a year for two years to
Taylor County to assist with the
project.

Pipeline takes wastewater

recycling to the next level
City of Perry has been awarded a $1.67 million federal grant to
construct a pipeline to redirect the municipality's entire wastewater
discharge to a new green energy project in Taylor County.
The project is in the engineering and planning stage, and officials
said they hope to begin advertising for construction bids by the summer.
More than one million gallons of "gray" water a day will be recycled
under the program.The new pipeline will transport treated wastewater,
known as "gray water," to Buckeye Technologies manufacturing plant
where it will be used to cool a biomass-powered, clean energy turbine
that is expected to generate 12 MW of electricity. The turbine is part
of Buckeye's "Energy Independence Project," a project designed to
reduce the manufacturing site's fossil fuel use by the equivalent of
200,000 barrels of oil per year.
The city has already secured funding on the state level to assist with
the estimated $2.3 million construction costs.

Taylor County offers year-round

hunting and fishing opportunities


If you enjoy hunting and
fishing in the great outdoors,
Taylor County offers an
abundance of opportunities
year-round.
From September to April each
year, hunters have an ample
opportunity to track such big
game as whitetail deer and wild
hog as well as smaller game
like duck, quail, dove, rabbit,
squirrel and turkey.
More than 70,000 acres
are open to the public for
hunting each year with the


Every summer, thousands of
visitors flock to the shores of
Taylor County to take part in
Mother Nature's biggest Easter
egg hunt: scalloping.
The Gulf oil spill had no effect
on the 2010 harvest, which was
one of the best in years.
The bay scallop season
opens July 1 and runs through
Sept. 10. The mollusks can be
found all along Taylor County's
coast, including at Keaton


Beach, Hagen's Cove and
Steinhatchee.
The only items needed for a
full day of scalloping are a boat,
a snorkel and mask, a mesh bag,
a diver's flag and a recreational
saltwater fishing license.
According to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, recreational
harvesters are limited to two
gallons of whole bay scallops
in the shell, or one pint of bay


scallop meat, per day during
the open season. In addition,
recreational scallopers may
possess no more than 10 gallons
of whole bay scallops in the
shell, or gallon of bay scallop
meat, aboard any vessel at any
time.
Bay scallops may be
harvested only by hand or with
a landing or dip net. They may
not be harvested for commercial
purposes.


proper permits. Large-tract
private hunting clubs also seek
members to join their ranks.
Fishing, both fresh and
saltwater, entices anglers both
young and old.
The numerous lakes, rivers
and streams in Taylor County
hold common species such as
largemouth bass, Suwannee
bass, bluegill, shellcracker,
catfish, crappie and red bellys.
Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico
offers an even greater variety of
species. ,

speckled trout with redfish
claiming a close second.
Near shore anglers can also
catch flounder, mullet, Spanish
mackerel, cobia, jack cravelle,
sailcat, pompano and an
occasional tarpon.
Offshore anglers like to go
after grouper but also frequently
target amberjack, king
mackerel, dophin, red snapper,
shark, pinkmouths, sheepshead
and barracuda.


Isn't the weather nice?
Even though Perry and the entire Southeast
just endured a remarkably cold winter, the annual
average temperature for Taylor County hovers
around 70 degrees.
Though the summers can be hot, the Gulf
of Mexico runs the entire length of the county,
providing cooling breezes for the hottest months
and moderating ones in the cooler months.
In addition to 50 miles of coastline, the county
also has an abundance of springs, lakes and rivers.
After three years of drought conditions, the
rainfall deficit has now been erased and some
areas on the southern end of the county may show
a rainfall surplus.
On average, the. county records from 2.61
inches of rainfall in January to 8.36 inches in July,
for a total of 50 inches annually.


The annual scallop season is one of the coast's biggest draws each summer.

Trivia
Come see the Moon Tree
at Forest Capital State
Park. It's a Loblolly Pine
tree that was planted in
1978.
Hundreds of tree seeds
packed in small containers
orbited the moon on Apollo
14. Upon return to the
earth, the seeds were
germinated by the U.S.
Forest Service. Known as
"Moon Trees," the resulting
seedlings were planted
throughout the United
States in select areas.
In the early 1990's
archeologists uncovered a
Mastedon in Taylor County
along the Aucilla River
with a significant amount
of marks on its tusks
made by pre-historic flint
instruments which proved
that ice age man existed
over 13, 000 years ago in
Taylor County.
Taylor County is home to
the World's Largest FREE
Fish Fry held each year

In March, Taylor Technical Institute received a "glowing" report from an evaluation
team on site to renew the school's accreditation. "TTI was cited as being an excellent,
clean and organized institution," Vocational Coordinator Jim Brannan said. Shown

Technical Institute (TTI)
partnered in 2010 to start a
Practical Nursing program here
in January.

A' rated TCHS expands programs, opportunities


Taylor County High School
scored its first ever "A" in 2010,
and there are more changes in
store this year, including the
establishment of a biomedical
technical academy to tie into
Taylor Technical Institute's
nursing program.
TCHS finished the 09-10
school year boasting an 89
percent graduation rate along
with a 79 percent graduation
rate among "at-risk" students.


"It goes to show that all
the hard work put in by the

administration has really paid
off," Superintendent Paul Dyal.

In March, TCHS was
recommended for re-accredition
by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools (SACS)
review team.
"The committee agreed that
TCHS is a quality school,


meeting the needs of its
students through a well-rounded
curriculum and extra-curricular
programs," Dyal said.
As for the future, the Taylor
County School District's
application to take part in

program was approved in
February, and it includes the
implementation of a career and
technical program at TCHS
which provides training for


occupations requiring science,
technology, engineering and
math (known collectively as
STEM).
Dyal said the district is
looking at creating a bio-
medical academy at TCHS, from
which students could graduate
as a certified nurse assistant,
that would feed students in
'Taylor Technical Institute's new
licensed practical nurse (LPN)
program.


According to TCHS Assistant
Principal Anne Morgan, other
changes in store include the
addition of human geography
and environmental science to
the list of offered AP classes, a
two-year drafting academy (to

Community College instructor)
which will feed into NFCC,
and revamping senior English

"This exciting partnership
demonstrates what can happen
when two institutions work
together to address a pressing
need," said Doug Brown, dean
of Workforce Education at

"~The fosd ie ce for ."


B-5 Progress 2011 March 30, 2011


Providing 3 positive places


for kids in Taylor County


Taylor County doesn't just
have one positive place for
kids...its has three.
The local chapter of the Boys
& Girls Club--known regionally
as the Boys & Girl Club of
North Central Florida to reflect
an expansion of services in the
Big Bend area--serves nearly
800 students between the ages
of five and 17 annually.
The mission of the club is "to
inspire and enable all youth,


especially those who need
us most, to realize their full
potential as responsible and
caring citizens."
The club works to accomplish
that mission by providing
members:
A safe place to learn, grow,
and have fun.
Ongoing relationships with
caring, adult professionals.
Life-enhancing programs
and character development


experiences.
Hope and opportunity.
The program currently serves
Taylor County youth at three
local units: Veteran's Park,
located at 918 North Washington
Street; Jerkins Branch, at 1201
Martin Luther King Avenue;
and the Steinhatchee Stingray
Unit, located at Steinhatchee
School.
Programs are offered in six
core service areas including


character and leadership
development; health and life
skills; the arts; sports, fitness
and recreation; education
and career development; and
technology.
During the summer months,
each site offers the USDA
Summer Food program in which
children are served a healthy
breakfast and lunch each day at
.no cost to their families.
The Boys & Girls Club of


North Central Florida has been
given a 21st Century Learning
Centers Grant from the U.S.
Department of Education for all
four club sites.
This government program
supports the creation of
community learning centers
that provide academic
enrichment opportunities
during non-school hours for
children, particularly students
who attend high-poverty and


low-performing schools. The
program helps students meet
state and local student standards
in core academic subjects,
such as reading and math;
offers students a broad array
of enrichment activities that
can complement their regular
academic prograqis; and offers
literacy and other educational
services to the families of
participating children (www.

Golf course offers


challenging holes


With many recent
improvements, Perry Golf and
Country Club has become one
of the most challenging small
courses in North Florida.











1
f.' -


Several years ago, the course
rebuilt all of its greens to
United States Golf Association
standards.
The well-bunkered new
greens are not only beautiful,
they can be extremely
challenging with numerous
undulations and subtle breaks.
The fairways are lined by sky-
scraping pines, grand-daddy
oaks and numerous second-
growth trees.
The course plays to a
challenging par 70 and features
three par fives, five par threes
and 10 par four holes.
The semi-private facility is
open year-round and guests are
welcome. The course is located
about five miles south of Perry
off U.S. 98 west on Golf Course
Road.
For more information, drop
by the club or call (850) 584-
3590.

Get up close and personal with the Gulf
Looking for somewhere to cool your toes in the Gulf of Mexico? Look no farther than Hodges Park at Keaton
Beach. Thanks to recent grant funding, in addition to picnic pavilions and a fishing pier, the park features a
children's playground as well as two beachfront viewing platforms.


Parking lot to help alleviate boat ramp overflow


Officials are hoping to have the parking lot installed
by the start of the 2011 scallop season.


The county has successfully
applied for several grants for
the Keaton Beach Coastal Park
and officials are hopeful that the
planned 52-space parking lot,
which will serve overflow from
the adjacent public boat ramp,
will be ready by scallop season.
In 2009, the county received
a $35,000 Florida Boating
Improvement Program (FBIP)
grant for the design and
engineering of the parking lot.
Since then, the county has
also received an award letter
for an' additional $100,000
FBIP grant for construction
costs. This will not be enough to
cover the entire cost of the lot,
but county commissioners have


already earmarked money from
their secondary road paving
fund for the project, Grants
Coordinator Melody Cox said.
The lot has been permitted
and once the county receives a
contract for the new FBIP grant,
they will proceed with putting
the project out for bids, Cox
added.
In addition to the parking lot,
the county has also received a
$35,000 U.S. Fish and Wildlife
grant for wetlands restoration
on the property as well as for
some upland vegetation.
The county has also applied
for a $25,000 grant through
the Coastal Partnership, which
is funded through the National


Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration.
The county's application has
been approved by state officials
and has been forwarded on to
the federal level, Cox said. If
approved, the grant will fund the
construction of a picnic pavilion
and informational kiosks at
the park, as well as additional
landscaping, including a
butterfly garden.
"We will know by May," Cox
said.
In March, commissioners
agreed to apply for $600,000
from the Florida Department
of Transportation Enhancement
Program 2017 funding cycle to
design, engineer and construct


a trail from the park to Dark
Island along County Road 361.
According to Cox, FDOT staff
said there would be sufficient
funds for a trail consisting of
paved shoulders, the extension
of bridge shoulders and in one
area a boardwalk.
She added that funding
requests must be made five years
in advance, but if the county's
application was approved, work
could begin as early as 2015.
The county acquired the 44-
acre park site in 2008 with a $3
million Florida Communities
Trust Program grant. As part of
the grant, the county committed
to a series of improvements to
the site over a 10-year period.


Whether you-need a question
answered, a problem solved or a
claim reported, my job is to make
it happen. Like a good neighbor,
State Farm is there?

.TAL IMPLANT

SYSTEM

How can mini dental implants help denture wearers?
The Mini Dental Implant System calls for four of the
1.8 mm mini dental implants, which are about the size
of wooden toothpicks, to be gently placed into the
front of the patient's lower jaw. It is a relatively .
painless procedure that Dr. Morgan can .
perform, usually only requiring a mild anesthesia. Your
denture is then carefully adjusted by the dentist to allow
it to snap onto the four mini implants. The result? A
tight fitting, completely reliable system, that allows you .
to speak and eat with confidence. All performed in
about two hours, then you may go out and enjoy your
favorite lunch.

The location of your business within the
enterprise zone of Taylor County will have
a positive impact on your company's ability
to improve profits. After all, we both want
your business tree, unlike this one, to have
as much foliage as possible.

Whatever your business concerns, if we
are unable to immediately offer a clear
advantage to your balance sheet, we will
strive to create one. Your business is that
important to us. We are growing and we
invite you to grow with us. Share our
magnificent sunsets and quality of life.
