possible

cuts

Based on the budget
proposals recently passed by the
Florida House and Senate, the
Taylor County School District
is bracing for a reduction in
funding of at least $1.4 million.
Updating the school board on
the latest news from Tallahassee,
Superintendent Paul Dyal
called the Legislature's budget
plans "best-case" scenarios
since Governor Rick Scott's
proposed budget has steeper
cuts.
The two houses are expected
to begin joint committee
meetings on the budget after the
Easter holiday. Although the
Legislative session is set to end
on May 6, it is likely the session
will be extended to allow for
time to complete work on the
budget.
The district, like others
around the state, is facing the
end of federal stimulus money,
which the state used to help
shore up its own education
funding for the past two years.
The district in turn used the
money to fund a number of
teaching and support positions.
As far as the Taylor district's
current state, the school district
is in its best financial shape in

Scallop season to open a week early


The 2011 scallop season
will officially open one week
earlier than its usual July 1 start
date and remain open for an
additional two weeks.
That was the news out of
Tallahassee Tuesday afternoon
after the Florida Cabinet
approved the change, the second


year in a row the annual scallop
season has been extended.
"Minutes ago, the Florida
Cabinet, in their meeting in
the Panhandle, has approved
Senator [Charlie] Dean's
request to open scallop season
one week early and extend the
season for two weeks," Dean's


chief legislative aide, Kevin F.
Sweeny, told the Taco Times
Tuesday afternoon.
Dean, whose district includes
Taylor County, sent a letter
to Gov. Rick Scott in March
requesting he consider opening
the season two weeks early,
which he said would "go a


long way in accelerating the
economic rebound" in coastal
communities within his district
impacted by last summer's Gulf
oil spill.
Scott responded earlier this
month, endorsing the request,
saying he would forward it to
the Florida Fish and Wildlife


Conservation Commission
and ask that they "give strong
consideration to opening the
scallop season two weeks early
this year. I expect our request
will be viewed favorably."
Last year, the state opened
scallop season 12 days early in
response to the Gulf oil spill.


Naked man steals, crashes church bus


A naked man in your vegetable
garden isn't something you
expect to see every day.
But that's just what Jewel
Horton of Lake Bird found
Saturday morning when she
looked out her back window.
"He was as naked as a yard
dog. It was awful. It was really
pitiful," Horton said.
"I didn't know anything about
it until I saw the cops coming up
in the yard. Then I looked and
there was my son-in-law driving
up in his truck, my daughter on
the golf cart, a sheriff's deputy
and my nephew on another golf
cart all coming into my yard.
That's when I looked out and
saw him."
The man was 37-year-old
Alexander Jack Noda of Live
Oak. Earlier that morning, he
allegedly stole a church bus
parked at a residence on Loren
Henderson Road-crashed it-
and then broke into Lake Bird
United Methodist Church.
Jerry McLeod discovered him
at the church.
"We were having our Hendry-
McLeod family reunion at
Shady Grove Hendry Memorial
Church Saturday morning. My
duty was to go by Lake Bird
and pick up ice for the reunion.
I drove around the back of
the church and that's when I
noticed the back door, which
we seldom use, was open. I also
noticed a piece of the door lying


on the floor and I thought that
somebody had broken in. Then I
heard some noise and I hollered.
I saw something moving in the
foyer area of the church and
when I hollered, it sounded
like dogs barking and I thought
'there's someone in the church
with a bunch of dogs'. All of a
sudden, the double doors came


busting open and a guy came
marching through naked as a
jaybird. He marched right up
the aisle, took a sharp left and
kept marching toward me. He
didn't even look at me-he
went right by me. Took another
sharp right and then marched
toward the fence of the church
cemetery and kneeled down,"


McLeod said.
"I called my wife and told her
to call 911.1 I knew I needed help
so I drove down to the neighbors
and honked my horn. Nobody
was home, so I turned around
and when I did, I saw the man
running down the road toward
me. He came right at me, so I
swerved around him and kept


Courthouse crash
A domino-effect crash happened in front of the Taylor County Courthouse
Monday afternoon. The driver of the vehicle caught in the middle of the crash
complained of injuries and was transported to Doctors' Memorial Hospital for
medical evaluation.


going. He was running right
behind me. I pulled up a little
further and stopped, and he kept
coming.
"Finally I got to Highway
221 and took a left toward Perry
Jackson's house. They were out
in the yard so I pulled in and
told him that I needed some
help because a naked man was
chasing me and he had kicked in
our church door.
"The man followed me onto
221 and kept running. He
ran up to the top of the hill in
Lake Bird, took a left and then
another sharp left, got into
Jewel Horton's garden and
kneeled down. About that time
the law came and took it over
from there. I came back to the
house and got a call from the
officer telling me that the church
van had wrecked. I went down
there and it wasn't our van, but
belonged to Pleasant Grove
Church. The engine was still
running when I got there. So
I called a member of Pleasant
Grove and then left it with them.
"I went back down to the
reunion and told my story.
Everybody sat there with their
jaws wide open," McLeod said.
"It was very bizarre-when
you go to church, you don't
expect to find a naked man. I've
never had anything like this
happen before."

School bus schedule to change?


Almost two years after the
Taylor County School District
radically changed its bus
routes to include two runs and
staggered school schedules in
a bid to save on transportation
costs, it appears the district
could switch direction next
school year and return to one
bus run.
Superintendent Paul Dyal
broached the subject with the
school board Monday evening
during budget discussions,
pointing out that transportation
costs, based on projected
figures for the current year, have
dropped $573,000 since the
2007-08 school year.
With the implementation of


stricter class size regulations
this year, however, much of the
savings from the changes are
being offset by the cost of hiring
new teachers and associate
teachers, Dyal said.
The staggered schedules at
Taylor County Middle School
(TCMS) and Taylor County
High School (TCHS) resulted in
smaller classes at the start and
end of each day and larger class
sizes in the middle of the day,
requiring additional teachers
and associate teachers, he
explained.
"The cost savings of the
staggered school starts would
be taken up by the number of
teachers needed to make class


size with the 'country run,'"
Dyal said.
Prior to this year, class size
was measured on a school
average, but now each core class
must stay within the limits,
which at TCMS is 22 students
per class and at TCHS is 25
students per class.
Dyal said if the district returns
to a single run, it can meet class
size requirements next year
with its current complement of
teachers without the new hires
made this year to meet class
size.
Another issue the school
board will have to face if the
district moves forward with
returning to a single run is


A place to remember
A bench was dedicated in the memory of Lacey Lundy Morgan Friday afternoon at
Perry Primary School, where she had been training to become a teacher when she
was skilled in an automobile crash last October. Shown above are Flagler College
Associate Professor Susan Strauss, Perry Primary Principal Pam Padgett, Flagler
Elementary Education Department Chair Melanie Jenson, Lacey's husband Zak Morgan
and Superintendent Paul Dyal.


whether the district will pick up
courtesy (or ineligible) riders--
those students who live within
two road miles of their school.
The state does hot reimburse the
district for those costs.
Included in the changes
implemented two years ago,
the district stopped picking up
those students in grades 6 to 12
who live within two miles. They
continue to pick up younger
students within two miles.
According to Department of
Education figures, the district
had 325 ineligible riders during
the 2009-10 school year. The
average cost of a rider was $847
for the year. The state allocation
was $369.


FTE numbers for the current
year show 375 courtesy riders.
During Monday's discussion,
Dyal said the extra cost of
returning to one run could
be made up by expanding
enforcement of the two-mile
statute to all students, resulting
in approximately $191,000 in
savings.
On Tuesday, Dyal stressed
this was just a proposal and no
decision has been made at this
point by the board.
Based on the proposed
budgets passed recently by
the Florida House and Senate,
the district is facing a
reduction in funding of around
$1.4 million.


Bench dedicated in


Morgan's memory


at Perry Primary
When Lacey Lundy Morgan was killed in a car crash last October
at the age of 23, a family lost their daughter and sister, a husband
lost his wife and Taylor County lost a future teacher who would
have touched many children's lives through her career.
On Friday, faculty members from Flagler College, where Morgan
was studying to become a teacher, presented her diploma to her
husband, Zak Morgan, and dedicated a memorial bench at Perry
Primary School.
At the time of her death, she was working at the school as a
practicum teacher for her degree.
Superintendent Paul Dyal welcomed the gathered group of family
members, friends, classmates and fellow teachers to the emotional
ceremony held Friday afternoon.
"I've often said the teaching profession is like the ministry," Dyal
said. "It is a calling. It's a gift. We all though Lacey had that gift.
"I know she has the best teaching job she could have. I also know
she has the best administrator. Our loss is heaven's gain."
Flagler Elementary Education Department Chair Melanie Jenson
said she had the pleasure of talking with Morgan during her time
at the college. Before leaving for Perry, Jensen said she had looked
through Morgan's portfolio and wanted to share Morgan's own
words about the profession she was preparing to enter.
"The reason I went into teaching is because I have a passion for
children," Jensen read. "These days we need teachers out there and
I want to be one."
Listening to Kay Cantrell, who mentored Morgan during her

time at Perry Primary, she would have been a good one.
"The kids loved her," Cantrell said. "There was an instant bond
between her and the students. She would have made a great teacher."
The new bench, which was donated by the Flagler College
students chapter of the Florida Education Association, now sits in
the Perry Primary playground, flanked by a pair of trees.
Associate Professor Susan Strauss said Morgan's classmates
"wanted to do something for Lacey."
Once they settled on the idea of a bench, the first thought was
to place it at Flagler, Strauss said. Then they decided to instead
present it to Perry Primary where Morgan had spent her time
teaching students.
The face of the bench is a mosaic scene of children playing under
a blue sky, created by Strauss' friend Ann Home, who spent about
three months on the project.
Included is a circular emblem which reads, "In memory of Lacey
Lundy Morgan, 1987-2010."
If Friday's ceremony was any indication, she will never be
forgotten.

McLeod added that there
was very little damage to the
church and "it has already
been repaired. The young
man was in our prayers at
church Sunday morning and
*we certainly hope he gets
straightened out."
The church bus sustained
several thousand dollars worth
of damage, Pleasant Grove
Pastor Danny Lundy said.
When Taylor County
Sheriff's Office Deputy Gregg
Gulbrandsen approached
Noda in Horton's garden, he
found him "kneeling in a fetal
position."


I attempted to make contact
with the subject, but he remained
silent. He got up off the ground
and began advancing toward
me. He refused to comply with
my demands to halt and at that
time, I deployed my Taser,"
Gulbrandsen said.
"After he was taken into
custody, he confessed to
breaking into the Lake Bird
church and stealing a bus
belonging to Pleasant Grove
Baptist Church."
Noda was booked at the
Taylor County Jail on charges
of grand theft auto, burglary,
criminal mischief and resisting
without violence.
He posted bond and was
released the same day.

TM CAPITOL UPDATE m


from the office of


Sen. Charles Dean


Senate committees pass bills


on Medicaid, septic systems


Editor's Note: The following
summary of the Legislature's sixth
week of business in Tallahassee
was featured in Senator Charles
Dean's weekly newsletter, "The
Dean Document," which was
distributed Friday.
Week six of the Legislative
session in the Florida Senate
was spent primarily in Senate
committees. The general orders
of business in the committee
included confirmations of board
members, voting on a multitude
of bills and issue-oriented
workshops.
A constitutional amendment
to lower the property assessment
cap on non-homestead property
passed the Senate Judiciary
Committee this week. The
measure (SJR 658) would also
allow the Legislature to get rid
of "recapture"--under which
the assessed value of some
homes, for tax purposes, climb
even as the actual value drops
--with a general law. After an
amendment, the measure would
slice the assessment cap on non-


homestead property in half, from
a 10 percent increase per year to
five percent. This bill still has to
pass through two committees.
The Senate Budget
Committee considered several
high profile bills, including the
chamber's main bill dealing
with illegal immigration (SB
2040), a bill prohibiting the
state from deducting union dues
from workers' paychecks (SB
830) and the proposed Medicaid
overhaul (SB 1972).
Also on the committee's
long agenda is a bill changing
rules on local government
pensions for police officers
and firefighters (SB 1128),
and a measure limiting when
doctors can ask patients about
whether they own a firearm
(SB 432).
Another bill to pass through
committee was Senate Bill 556
which would require recipients
of temporary financial assistance
to have to test negative on a drug
test, which they pay for, before
collecting their checks. The


measure closely resembles a
House proposal (HB 353) which
also requires recipients to pay for
the drug testing. In two-parent
households, both parents would
be tested and children would be
allowed to continue receiving
benefits, with assistance checks
being sent to guardians who
must test negative.
Senator Charlie Dean had
multiple bills pass through
their respective committees this
week.
Included in these were Senate
Bill 1698, relating to on-site
sewage treatment and disposal
systems; Senate Bill 292,
relating to recreation vehicle
parks; Senate Bill 1110, relating
to the observation of the end of
the Vietnam War; Senate Bill
890, relating to 911 operators;
Senate Bill 1290, dealing with
consumer affairs on pest control;
Senate Bill 224, dealing with
local government transparency;
and Senate Bill 904, which
provides for Disabled Veterans
of Florida.

die in the Dominican Republic
crisis?
Another mother asked
President Harry S. Truman in
1950...why did my son have to
die in-Korea? .,:, ,
Another mother asked
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
in 1944...why did my son have
to die on Iwo Jima?
Another mother asked
President Woodrow Wilson in
1919...why did my son have to
die on a battlefield in France?
Another mother asked
President Abraham Lincoln in
1865...why did my son have to


die at Gettysburg?
And yet another mother asked
President George Washington in
1792...why did my son have to
die on a frozen field near Valley
Forge?
Then long, long ago a
mother asked 2,000 years ago.
Heavenly Father...why did
my Son have to die on a cross
outside of Jerusalem?
The answer is always the
same..."So that others may live
and dwell in peace, happiness
and freedom."
What will you be doing this
Good Friday (the day our Lord
Jesus was nailed to the cross)
and will you be giving thanks
on Easter morning (the day
our Jesus rose from the grave)
for all He has done for you? Or
will this be just another regular
weekend in your life?
I wish you all a very happy
Easter from my family to
yours.
Respectfully,
Ted Colson

Dear Editor:
My name is Monroe Lee.
Back in 1973 I came to Perry/
Taylor County to build a pond
for Buckeye at Foley.
In 1974 Mr. James (Jake)
Bassett adopted me and gave
me social counsel as a son to
him even though I was 21
years old when he met me.
The next year, I founded an
engineering/architectural/sign
painting/home improvement
business until the U.S.
Department of Commerce
(NOAA) hired me off 221 here
in Taylor County.
So I wanted to thank Mr.
Bassett,Bob and Stella Meissner,
Ruby Jane Britt, Mary Boykins
Mitchell, Mr. Robertson of
Robertson Construction, Mr.


Ackers of Taylor County Crab
Market Development, Judge
Royce Agner and James Roy
Bean who gave me counsel as
a young man and many others
over a 38-year period.
It must have worked. I have
not let these friends down.
I told Mr. Bassett that his
wise counsel kept me out of
jail.
And special thanks to Bill
Noonan, city manager in the
1980s, and the Jack Tedder
family and staff throughout
the courthouse. I am now
retired.
Monroe Lee,
Leaving in place a
foundation that teaches young
disadvantaged people to be

Midweek Muddle


Th




Thirty-eight years after my high
school graduation, I have redefined
success.
It happened this weekend at a
reunion marking that fateful day in
1977 when 37 other classmates joined
me in cap and gown to receive high
school diplomas. We were confident,
of course, that we would each proceed
to college, marry well, raise beautiful
children effortlessly and live happily
ever after in well decorated homes with
manicured lawns.
A friend confided in me, "The dream
is dead."
I understand completely her
assessment and would, on the worst of
days, lean toward agreement.
But after this weekend, I prefer
to suggest that success has more
dimensions than Webster could
possibly put in his listing of alternative
meanings; the dream, it seems, has to
be re-tooled on a regular basis.
For example, our class president grew
up under the comfortable financial
umbrella of Old Coca-Cola Money. At
age 18, the world must have looked to
him like it did to Columbus: engaging,
intriguing, full of adventure and self-
satisfaction. Our president didn't
know then that his wife would die of
breast cancer and it would be him,
alone, parenting two boys and worrying
when one was withdrawn from
college.
Martha Lee was among the beauties
in the class line-up. Who knew three
men would marry and divorce her,
the last for a woman who was his own
daughter's age?
My cheerleader captain married a
good-looking guy with a promising job,
plenty of land and plenty of family in
Georgia. He has proceeded to lose most
of that, including his job, to gambling.
However, and this is where the dream
catches its breath: the stories of those
who have dusted themselves off and
started over again are nothing short of
inspirational.


.e dream


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN


The marriages which endured 30 years
were easy to recognize at the reunion
and someone--with no background--
might assume that dreams belong only
to those whose plans don't change
mid-stream. But I now believe the new
model of success belongs those who
are able to pick up the pieces, again
and again, and make a new dream: if
one business fails, they find another.
When a parent becomes a widower in
poor health, his family moves him into
their home to care for him. When one
lost the farm, he found another house
to make into a home. If there was drug
abuse, the family found help.
That is now my greatest source of
pride for my small class among all
those classes in 1977. We are fortunate
to have successful lawyers, teachers,
financial advisors, timber cruisers, a
probate judge, secretaries, accountants
and entrepreneurs. One works for the
Secret Service but if she tells us what
she does, she'll have to kill us.
We have married newspaper men,
Episcopal priests, a former New Orleans
Saints football player, telephone
company trojans and stockbrokers.
None of us, it seems, found that model
of perfection which appeared so certain
when our diplomas were awarded. But
we have found our way, and we are
much smarter now. We are also more
compassionate, kind and generous.
Thirty-eight years later, that is cause
for celebration.
And that is what took place in a small
town in 'Alabama where people who
still feel like they're 18, realized they
were 55, and rejoiced to find a family of
friends they loved a lifetime ago.
Not a perfect one, mind you.
But a reinvented one which, like a
restored old home, only gets better
with age and a new paint of coat.
Forty's the new 30. Fifty's the new
40. And success is now measured in
resiliency, perseverance and faith.
The dream, I am happy to report, is
not dead.

Reserve funds could be used to

help overcome budget shortfall


SCHOOL DISTRICT
Continued from page 1
years. According to audit figures
released earlier this month,
the district ended the 2009-10
school year with a $1.56 million
general fund reserve. This is
marked improvement over the
2007-08 year, which ended with
a $1.4 million negative fund
balance.
According to Dyal, current
projections call for the district
to finish the 2010-11 year with
a $1.6 million general fund
reserve, or 7.86 percent.
State statutes require districts
to have at least a three-percent
fund reserve, and school board
policy calls for a one-half
percentage point increase each
year.
Additionally, Dyal quoted
a board policy which states
that the board "shall include a
contingency fund; which fund
when fully implemented, will
provide a reserved fund balance
of as much as $1 million."
Dyal told school board
members if they used the
remainder of the projected
surplus over $1 million, the
district would still need to
find $814,000 in spending

Easter Egg

Hunt set

this Friday

The 4-H Beach Girls Club
will host a Community Easter
Egg Hunt this Friday, April 22,
starting at 9 a.m., at Hodges
Park. The event will feature
an appearance by the Easter
Bunny. Admission is free.
The hunt is being held in
conjunction with the annual
"Cross Walk" conducted by
Blue Creek Baptist Church
which starts at 8:30 a.m.


reductions.
"I can't recommend going
under $1 million," he said.
"In 08-09, we could look at
where we were overspending,"
Dyal said. "We are not
overspending now. In 08-09
we knew were overstaffed. We
developed a staffing plan. We
are not overstaffed now."
He said moving forward, the
district would have to look not
at whether they want or need
certain programs, but whether
they can afford them.
During Monday's discussion,
Dyal listed the positions--not
counting teachers--funded in
the current year by stimulus
funds. He stressed that he was
not recommending they be
eliminated, but that funding
must be found to continue them.
The positions include band
teachers at Taylor County
Middle School and Taylor
County High School, P.E.
teachers and ESE positions at
other schools, and district office
personnel. They total some
$440,000 in salaries.
Dyal also discussed


several possible cost savings
measures. including reducing
the number of paid holidays
to the six recognized by the
state (a savings of $48.000)
and reducing the percentage
of employees' insurance
premiums the district currently
pays by 25 percent (a savings of
$278,000). In both cases. Dyal
said the changes would involve
collective bargaining. He also
acknowledged that the latter
would increase employees' out-
of-pocket expenses by some
$600 a year.
The district is also looking
at reversing the transportation
changes implemented two years
ago (see related story).
At the conclusion of his
presentation, Dyal told school
board members the first step
in preparing the budget will be
for them to decide how much,
if any, of the reserve they want
to use.
Board members said they
wanted to work on balancing the
budget first without the reserve,
and if they can't, reconsider
later.

The Seminoles scored one in
the top of the eighth but TCHS

the inning with Dylan Cayson
hitting a sacrifice fly into deep
right field to score a sliding

Pelt led the 'Dogs in hitting
with a 2-for-3 effort. Others with
one hit each included Daniel
Wentworth (double), William
Wentworth, Cayson and Hunter
Barfield (2 RBIs). Kyle Brooks

Winning It All



Former FSU player will share memories of

National Championship run April 25 at library


Former Florida State University tight end Ryan Sprague, who
was part of the 1999 championship team, will be the guest speaker
at the Friends of the Taylor County Public Library meeting on
Monday, April 25.
Sprague is author of the memior "Grateful: From Walking On to
Winning It All At Florida State," recounting his five years (1996-
2000) as a member of the FSU football team. The book also includes
a foreword from famed FSU coach Bobby Bowden.
Sprague started his career as a walk-on, moving his way up
to starting tight end. He is now associate pastor of King's Way
Christian Church in Tallahassee.
"I grew up in Augusta, Ga., and didn't envision ever leaving,"


Sprague said. "But, I was given the opportunity to attend Florida
State University, so I decided to go for it. I walked on to the football
team and eventually became a starter for our National Championship
run.
"I met my wife at FSU, and upon graduation began my career
as a full-time minister. I am the proud father of four unique
and remarkable boys, and our family is replanting our roots in
Tallahassee after an exciting year in Hawley, Minn., and a fulfilling
six in Highlands, N.C."
The Friends meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the library, which
is located at 403 N. Washington St. The meeting is free and the
public is invited to attend.


Restoring Mallory Swamp



System holds rainwater, feeds Steinhatchee, Suwannee rivers


In the 1950s, when industrial
landowners began to convert
Mallory Swamp (Lafayette
County) to pine plantations by
draining water off the property,
the swamp lost some of its ability
to hold rainwater and gently
feed it to the Steinhatchee and
Suwannee rivers downstream.
In 2001, a strike of lightning
ignited the dry land and a
wildfire swept through 60,000
acres of the swamp.
Now the Suwannee River
Water Management District
(SRWMD) is in the process of
restoring the land back to its
natural state and condition.
In 1999, the district purchased
a conservation easement on the
property to protect the land
from further development and
in 2002 the SRWMD acquired
full management and ownership
of nearly 30,000 acres of the
property.
On April 5, a group of about
25 biologists, foresters, parks
and recreation specialists,
environmentalists and
landowners toured Mallory
Swamp and other District
lands to provide feedback on
the district's land management
practices. The group, a land
management review team, tours
district property annually; their


comments are later presented to
the district's governing board.
Before taking the tour, the
group heard a presentation about
land management practices
and recreational opportunities
on several district properties,
including Mallory Swamp,
home of the district's largest
single restoration project


Beau Willsey, district
environmental scientist, gave a
presentation on the history of
Mallory Swamp.
About 30 years after
landowners installed a system
of drainage canals, scientists
determined that the hydrological
alterations were increasing
the discharge of water
from the Steinhatchee River
into the Gulf of Mexico, he told
the group.
"The increased flow had
the potential to negatively
affect aquatic organisms in the
river downstream to the gulf,"
Willsey said.


Such alterations also changed
the hydrology of the swamp and
affected natural vegetation and
related wildlife.
On the tour, the land
management review team saw
firsthand what the district has
done to restore the natural
hydrology of the swamp and
related natural communities.


Members of the team asked
questions and made suggestions
along the way.
Willsey and Scott Gregor,
SRWMD natural resource
specialist, discussed the
extensive network of canals and
ditches previously installed to
drain the swamp and what the
district has done to reverse the
effects of such alterations.
A member of the review
team, Jack Ewel (ecologist and
farmer), praised the district's
efforts to install culverts, ditch
blocks and other structures to
restore groundwater levels and
natural drainage patterns.


Land managers have installed
311 culverts, 58 ditch blocks and
eight flashboard riser structures
to reduce the flow of water into
the Steinhatchee and Suwannee
rivers and to recharge the
aquifer and rehydrate wetlands
within the swamp.
Data from groundwater
and surface water monitoring


devices and the response of
vegetation in wetland areas
will be used to determine
whether restoration goals are
being met.
Willsey and Gregor also
discussed the correlation
between restoring water
resources and the health of the
ecosystem.
Management activities, such
as prescribed burning and
reforestation are tools being
used to restore natural plant
communities with vegetation
that existed prior to land use
alterations.
Plant and animal species on


the property are monitored to
determine the effects of land
management activities on
such species and whether the
district is successful at returning
the land back to its pre-altered
state.
Another review team
member, Jacqui Sulek (Four
Rivers Audubon Society),


suggested the district do more
extensive monitoring of birds
on the property and she offered
to provide volunteers from her
group to implement that.
"One tool for measuring
the quality of a natural
community is how many birds
or other species are present; it's
like if you build it [natural
habitat], they will come," said
Gregor.
Since 2003, the district has
spent more than $3.4 million on
restoration efforts. About $2.4
million was provided by the
United States Natural Resource
Conservation Service through


the agency's Wetlands Reserve
Program.
Restoration efforts at Mallory
Swamp are a key example of
the district's land acquisition
and management goals, officials
said.
The district acquires and
manages lands for flood control,
water quality protection and
natural resource conservation.
SRWMD lands are open to
the public for recreational
opportunities, such as hunting,
fishing, hiking, camping and
horseback riding.
The purpose of the land
management review team is to
determine whether district land
managers are fulfilling their
statutory obligations, complying
with district policy and
improving land management
practices.
SRWMD is statutorily
required to get feedback on
its land management practices
each year. Invitations are sent
to various local governments,
agencies, organizations and
citizens in order to form a land
management review team.
Anyone interested in joining
the land management review
team may contact Gwen Lord
at (386) 362-1001 or (800) 226-
1066 (Florida only).

JROTC cadets go head-to-head in rifle match


Edwards retires
For more than 20 years, Marva Edwards worked to safeguard Taylor
County students and keep traffic moving in her capacity as school crossing
guard. She spent the majority of those years at the intersection of Clark
Street and Veterans Drive, retiring in March. Her career with the district
and the police department began in 1989. "I was taking my kids to Gladys
Morse Elementary School and Don Gutshall was directing traffic. I told him
he should hire me. He wrote my name down on his hand. Shortly after that
I went to Ft. Myers on vacation. When I got back, he had called and offered
me a job," Edwards said. She also substituted at Gladys Morse, worked
at Perry Primary and handled the "time out" class at the Taylor Learning
Center (TLC). "Marva did an excellent job wherever she worked. She was
always very professional," Perry Police Department Chief Vern Clark said.
He is shown above, right, presenting Edwards a certificate honoring her
service and retirement. *
