Regarding students' absences at school


Truancy charges filed against parents


Truancy related charges were
filed against the parents of nine
Taylor County Elementary
School students who missed
school for "substantially" more
than the 24 days allowed by
school district policy.
"(Officials) at Taylor County


Elementary were concerned
about the lack of attendance
of about nine students. They
followed board policy and
Florida Statutes, which requires
them to meet with the parents
and come up with a plan to
improve school attendance.


The students' attendance
did not improve and they
continued to be absent beyond
the allotted numbers of days,"
Superintendent of Schools Paul
Dyal said.
"They requested that I file
petition papers that the (parents/


students) were in violation of the
compulsory school attendance
law with the state attorney. The
state attorney did file charges
against the parents and we had
to meet with the judge."
Dyal said he could not
comment on the outcome of


Working

volunteers with Ihe Jerkins

involved.
A typical school year is
180 days. Under board policy,
students are not allowed to
have more than six unexcused
absences per nine weeks grading
period, totaling 24.


Statue

of Jesus

beheaded

Two teenagers reportedly
stole the head off a statue of
Jesus that was on display at a
local cemetery and then threw it
through the glass doors leading
into the high school gym
Thursday, June 9.
Jonathan Homsby, 18, and
Larry Huskins, 18, have both
been charged with two counts
of criminal mischief and one
count of burglary.
In addition to shattering the
glass doors, the teens admitted
to using the statue head to bust
out the windshield of a car
parked at the high school.
The crime was discovered
after an individual flagged
down a passing police officer
to report that a vehicle had
been burglarized in the school
parking lot.
During that initial
investigation, officers
discovered that the gym doors
had been broken.
"The officers located the
head of a starue in the gym and
later discovered that it had been
stolen from Pineview Memorial
Gardens. A short while later,
Taylor County Sheriff's Office
Sgt. Charles Campbell made
contact with the suspects.

At Hodges Park



Posted swim area to be designated


Hodges Park at Keaton Beach
will soon have a posted swim
area.
Commissioners unanimously
approved an ordinance last week
creating a vessel exclusion area
for the park to protect swimmers
from boats and jet skis.
The area will be marked
with three signs in the water


measuring four feet by three
feet attached to pilings eight
inches in diameter.
According to County Marine
Agent Fred Vose, he is awaiting
a certified copy of the ordinance
to forward to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission to finalize the
county's permit.


'Significant gains'


The results of this year's
FCAT are out and Taylor
County's 2011 scores remained
mostly level compared to last
year with few major shifts up or
down for most grade levels.
The most improvement was
seen in the district's writing
scores, with fifth, eighth and
llth grade students showing
significant gains.
The Florida Department
of Education (DOE) recently
released all of the this year's
FCAT (Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test) results after
beginning with just third grade
scores last month.
Those showed drops at both
Taylor County Elementary
School (TCES) and
Steinhatchee School.
The new results, however,
were more of a mixed bag
with the percentage of students
scoring "proficient" mostly
staying within a few percentage
points from last year's results.
This year was also the first
time the new FCAT was issued
to most students.
The FCAT 2.0 reading test
was given to students in grades
three through 10 and the math


test to students in grades three
through eight. The FCAT math
test was not given to ninth grade
students as they instead took
new required end-of-course
exams.
The regular FCAT math
test was administered to 10th
grade students and will also be
replaced next year with end-of-
course exams.
The science portion was
administered to students in
grades five, eight and 10. FCAT
2.0 science testing will begin
next year.
Finally, the writing portion
was given to students in grades
five, eight and 10.
According to DOE, this year's
FCAT 2.0 results have been
issued on the FCAT's existing 1
to 5 scale as equivalent scores.
A score of three or above is
considered proficient (except
for the writing test, where a
-four or above is proficient). A
new scoring measure will be
developed this fall for future
years.
A full list of the math and
reading scores can be found in
Please see page 3


"There is a safety concern
for swimmers using the water
access area at Hodges Park due
to boat traffic in the shallow
areas traditionally used for
wading and swimming," Vose
said.
Next the county will purchase
the signage, which will meet
FWC standards.


At last week's meeting Vose
said staff have been working
on the proposal since last
summer, getting approval
from a variety of state and
federal agencies including the
Florida Department of Law
Environmental Protection, U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, U.S.
Coast Guard and FWC.


The exclusion zone includes
any motorboat or other vessel,
including personal watercraft
such as jet skis. Violators will
be guilty of a noncriminal
infraction and subject to a $75
fine.

YOU'RE A TWISTED LITTLE
FREAK SHOW, WEINER...
BUT YOU'RE MY KINDA GUY...

MARK MORGAN. INC.


Writer explains'Think Green,


Think Soylent Green' t-shirt


Dear Editor:
My "Think Green, Think
Soylent Green" t-shirt is a
statement that the government
is selling us a bunch of stuff
that is "good for us" but is
really a very horrible thing.
That is also the message of the
movie.
Right now Feds have


hijacked good intentioned
environmentalists in the
"green" movement. It is a
marketing strategy to encourage
harmful legislation such as
higher gas prices to curtail use,
Cap and Trade type taxes to
sit in a global fund and tons of
other fees and taxes for which
we get no services but are


"for our own good."
All this when most of us are
lucky to fill up our car, buy
groceries and pay the mortgage.
Glad you read the shirt and
allowed dialogue, fight the good
fight.
John Crozier,
Senior Citizen and Edward
G. Robinson fan

Newspapers

integral part

of 6th grade

reading class
Dear Editor:
Thank you again for your
support of education. The
newspapers you provided for
my sixth grade reading class are
an integral part of my reading
curriculum. The students
readily identify with the local
news, sports and events of the
community. This identification
helped peak their interest which
increased their desire to read.
This year's FCAT reading
scores increased for my class
and your newspapers were a
part of that increase.
Thank you,
Jimmy Mincy Jr.

Fire danger 'very high'


The fire risk remains high and
although the county has received
several bouts of rain this month,
they have been accompanied by
lightning sparking numerous
fires.
The latest storm hit the county
Monday afternoon, dropping
heavy rain accompanied by
high winds and several reports
of hail.
"[Monday's] storms brought a
tremendous amount of lightning
along Highway 19 from
Eridu all the way down into
Cross City," Florida Division
of Forestry (DOF) Wildfire
Mitigation Specialist Chelsea
Parker said.
She added that they planned
to have their plane in the air
Tuesday in hopes of catching


any new lightning starts quickly.
The storms are already being
blamed for two fires in the
county.
"Both were caught very
quickly and have already been
contained and controlled,"
Parker said.
In the Perry District's four-
county area, some 28 fires have
been started by lightning in the
past two weeks.
Parker strongly urged citizens
to refrain from all burning of
any kind until a substantial
amount of rainfall is received.
On Tuesday, the humidity in
the Perry District was expected
to reach the mid 20s and the fire
danger for Taylor County was
considered "very high."
Meanwhile, the Keetch-


Byram drought index (KBDI)
for the county was 657 on a
range of 0 to 800.
On Monday, Gov. Rick Scott
declared a state of emergency
due to the ongoing danger of
wildfires and drought conditions
in the state.
According to the declaration,
there are approximately
310 active wildfires burning
approximately 115,583 acres
throughout the state.
Taylor County Emergency
Management Director Dustin
Hinkel said Taylor County has
fared well so far.
"The Division of Forestry
Perry District has done a
tremendous job keeping
everything under control," he
said.

However, this year students had
to score a four to be considered
proficient. Despite these higher
standards, our students did
extremely well. In fact, 89
percent of our students scored a
four or higher. As a result, we
were one of the top 10 districts
in the state."
"Steinhatchee School's

Sandy Hendry said.
"The school's reading

Something to
remember
In life, don't expect any more
than you give. What you give
out is what you will get back in
return. Remember, you reap
what you sow.
Repeating, by request: When
talking on the telephone, please
put your t.v. on "Mute." Those
who are hearing-impaired or
have other hearing sensitivities


would appreciate it.

Our thanks to Wallace and
Archie Nesbitt for sharing this
trip with us. Grassy Pond is
sponsored by Moody Air Force

Ratliff named first team



freshman All-American


For the second straight season,
the Jacksonville University
baseball team had a newcomer
duo earn national attention
after Taylor Ratliff and Chris
Anderson each received first team
National Collegiate Baseball
Writers Association (NCBWA)
freshman All-America team
honors on Monday.
Anderson and Ratliff follow
in the footsteps of Adam Brett
Walker and Dan Gulbransen who
received first team All-America
honors from three separate
outlets (NCBWA, Louisville
Slugger, PING!Baseball.com)
in 2010.
"This is a good honor for
them," said JU head coach Terry
Alexander.
"We have been privileged to
have our youth lead us these
last two seasons. We plan for
them to develop and get better


while also bringing in some
more new talent to help fill their
shoes."
Ratliff hit mainly in the
leadoff spot during his first
season, finishing third on the
squad with a .332 average. He
also had 24 RBI, nine doubles,
58 runs, a team-leading 25
steals and a .424 on-base
percentage to receive Atlantic-
Sun Conference all-freshman
accolades.
The former Taylor County
High standout is playing for the
Licking County (Ohio) Settlers
this summer in the Great Lakes
League. The league is made up
of college players from all over
the country.
Anderson, who was forced
to move to the closer role after
injuries plagued the JU pitching
staff, emerged as one of the top
closer in the conference by

Bembry keeping close watch on



septic tank inspection mandates


State Representative Leonard
Bembry has announced that
he demonstrated throughout
the recent 2011 legislative
session his support for finding a
solution to the statewide septic
tank inspection program that
was adopted in 2010 legislative
session.
Although the efforts to repeal
the statewide mandated septic
tank program did not pass the

I--H~rr~


Senate, the 2011 Legislature
took action to delay the
implementation of the program,
Bembry noted.
Rural residents and other
Florida homeowners on septic
systems will not be required this
year to undergo mandatory tank
inspections as was previously
scheduled. The program was
delayed by language placed
in the Implementing Bill for


the General Appropriations
Act. This bill required the
Department of Health (DOH)
to obtain approval from the
Legislative Budget Commission
(LBC) before implementation
could occur.
Still concerned about serious
financial impacts on consumers,
Bembry said he remains
hopeful that lawmakers will
permanently repeal a septic


Rotary update
State Rep. Leonard Bembry visited the Perry Rotary Club last week, giving members
an update on this year's legislative session. Among the subjects he spoke on was
the septic tank inspection program. The House voted to repeal the program but the
move failed in the Senate. Shown with Bembry are Rotary President Debbie Bassett
(left) and Dan Simmons.


system inspection program that
threatens to require property
owners to potentially spend
thousands of dollars on septic
system testing.
"I am committed to getting
the septic tank inspection bill
repealed or to a point it makes
sense for our rural communities.
A one-size-fits-all approach is
not a reasonable solution for our
people," he said.
In 2008, the DOH had
determined each septic
system owner would incur
approximately $600 for each
5-year inspection cycle, with
an average cost of more than
$3,000 for repairs in the
estimated 8 to 9 percent of cases
requiring repairs.
During the 2011 Session, the
House passed a bill to repeal the
required septic tank inspection
on a vote of 110-3. However,
the Senate was unable to get the
companion legislation passed
before the close of Session.
In commenting about the
legislative action, Bembry
stated, "I am pleased that the
program will be delayed so
the Legislature can get another
shot at repealing the statewide
mandate. If we have a septic
tank inspection law, it should
be tied to the number of septic
tanks per square mile in spring
shed areas only, in order to be
reasonable and fair for people in
rural north Florida."

Talk

By DELORES WALKER


I I_______________


Do your


colors show?
As we left the cemetery I glanced back to see if the red, white and
blue of the American flags could be seen from the road surrounding
the grave site. Seeing them proudly fluttering in the breeze from
their position near our family graves, I couldn't help the smile of
contentment that spread across my face. It is a tradition picked up
from our time spent in Longview, Wash., where flags are placed
on all the graves on Memorial Day. I was always touched to see
hundreds of flags spread across the countryside as a memorial not
only to those who bravely defended our freedom but to those who
kept the home-fires burning.
I turned to the three grandchildren who had made the trip with
us and asked, "Do you know why we place the flags on papa,
grandmother and your uncle, aunts and cousin's graves?" "We
respect them," six-year-old Declan declared. "And, we all live in
America, but they live in heaven too," chimed in four-year-old
Noah. Tori, our 14-year-old was noticeably quiet and I knew she
was remembering other trips where she had taken part in honoring
those gone on.
Grabbing the teachable moment I gave them a quick lesson in
American history. With their brown and blue eyes watching my
face, I explained the connection the placing of the flags meant to
me. Being the openly emotional person I am, I cannot talk about
freedom without my tears flowing. The children are used to this
display, but for some reason it seemed to touch a special cord in
their young minds this time as we shared our American roots and
how the flag signifies what we stand for: as one nation under
God".
I took them on a mental journey filled with brave men and
women who had and were still fighting for our right to exist as a
country. We explored the world of soldiers of yesteryear who went
into battle on foot and horseback carrying the stars and stripes high
to symbolize whose side they represented. I brought them forward
to today where battles are fought right in front of their eyes via the
invention of television. We talked about the care of the flag as we
rode down Mayo's Main Street that was lined with flags in honor
of the special day. We paused at the courthouse and post office as
they remembered the flags were flown there daily. I told them the
reason the flags were placed out each day was because these were
government buildings representing the American government.
With Memorial Day over we have less than a month before we
celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. Like Memorial Day, we
could not have the privilege to celebrate had there not been brave
Americans who felt like this country was worth dying for. I have
heard the quote "freedom is not free" and we know this is a true
statement. Our right to exist as a country was paid with a high price
when those brave pioneers turned their eyes toward freedom and
did what was necessary to ensure the rights we enjoy today.
The battle didn't end with the signing of the Declaration of
Independence. Our fight continues as our armed forces are deployed
throughout the far reaches of the world. It is all too easy for those
of us who reap the benefit of their sacrifice to lose sight of the high
cost they pay on a daily basis.
When I find myself becoming too complacent and tending to
forget why I can call myself an American, I take a trip outside to
look at my flag that has flown at the Walker house since 9-11. The
day lives vividly in my memory as I tearfully covered the news that
fateful morning along with so many other newspaper reporters. Not
too long after, Perry News Herald reporter Angela Castelucci and I
were in Live Oak to give a send off to National Guard troops, who,
like so many others, were called to join in defense of our freedom.
It is a memory tightly entrenched in my mind. We were there to see
the determination needed to defend these United States of America.
Though the flag has been replaced numerous times, I don't mind
the expense. The colors of this flag represent who I am, so I fly it
proudly and will continue to do so as long as possible.
As we approach the 4th, with all the parades, cookouts and
pursuits of the good-old-summertime in Florida, let's don't forget
how blessed we are to have the opportunity to enjoy these pleasures.
It doesn't come cheap!
