Prison sentence


modified for IRS


tax fraud schemer


It isn't often that a prosecutor
makes a motion which is
beneficial to a defendant, but
that is just what happened
Monday morning, June 20,
during hearings before Circuit
Judge James Roy Bean.
State Attorney Robert "Skip"
Jarvis sought to have a 30-month
prison sentence modified to be
"straight probation" for one of
five defendants convicted in
an alleged $3 million Internal
Revenue Service (IRS) scam.
Under his initial plea
agreement with the state
(entered Jan. 20), David Allen
Wingard's state prison term
was to run concurrent with a


(separate) federal sentence.
"However, the federal
authorities would not take him
(to begin serving his federal
sentence) because he had a
state sentence. So, that meant
he would serve his 30 months
with the Florida Department
of Corrections (FDOC) and
then face 27 months in federal
prison-which made his
sentences consecutive, not
concurrent as agreed upon,"
Jarvis explained.
"So while, yes, this is a (state)
sentence reduction for him, it is
the right thing to do."
.* Please see page 3

David Allen Wingard, right, was to return to federal custody today (Wednesday).
On Monday, Judge James Roy Bean granted a motion to amend his state prison
sentence to 30 months' probation for his role in an IRS tax return scheme.


Perry DOF sends units to battle area wildfires


Florida's active wildfire
season turned deadly Monday
when two firefighters from the
Division of Forestry's Suwanne
District were killed battling the
Blue Ribbon Fire in Hamilton
County.
According to Perry District
Wildfire Mitigation Specialist
Chelsea Parker, although no
local personnel were working
the fire Monday, seven
Perry District personnel--
one food-unit leader and a


strike team of six wildland
firefighters--were sent to the
Suwannee District Tuesday to
assist in wildfire suppression
efforts and operational
activities.
The Blue Ribbon Fire has
burned about 12 acres south of
Jasper. According to reports,
firefighters Josh Burch and
Brett Fulton were overtaken by
flames and smoke while battling
the blaze.

Perry man charged with

child porn, voyeurism

A 62-year-old Perry man has been charged with multiple counts
of child pornography, video voyeurism, child abuse and sexual
battery.
William Joseph Moore Jr. was taken into custody June 10 and
booked at the Taylor County Jail, where he is being held on a
$200,000 bond.
According to the arrest affidavit from the Taylor County Sheriff's
Office, Moore was arrested based on a sworn statement from a
juvenile victim who stated that he forced the juvenile to have sex
with him, fondled the juvenile and video filmed sex acts with the
juvenile, all without the juvenile's consent.
During their investigation, officers "found sufficient evidence to
support the allegations," Lt. Marty Nowlin said.


Resolution near in 5-year

dispute with county, DCA

A dispute between the county and the Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) which has lasted some five years, is
now one step from a conclusion.
County commissioners unanimously approved a pair of
comprehensive plan amendments last week as part of a stipulated
settlement agreement concerning two coastal properties which are
at the heart of the dispute.

Burch, 31, was a forest ranger
who lived in Lake City with


his wife and two children. He
worked with DOF for more than
10 years. Fulton, 52, began as a

Taylor County's
unemployment rate continued
its downward trajectory in
May, remaining below the
state average for the third
consecutive month.
The county's rate was 10
percent in April, down from
10.1 in April and 10.6 in March.
The rate was 12.4 in January.
May's number was the lowest
rate since April 2009, when it
was 9.6. The rate has not fallen
below 10 percent since.
Meanwhile, the number
of those employed jumped
to 8,267 in May, a 53 person
increase from April's total,
according to figures released
Friday by the Agency for

I I Curtis M. Whitfield


A true Taylor County character, Curtis M. Whitfield,
shown with his trademark Stetson, was 101 years old
when he died Friday.


A real character


Editor's Note: To be a writer,
you must have a story to tell.
Author Mike Morris is quick to say
that many of his stories are drawn
from the deep well of memories
his grandfather, Curtis M. Whitfield,
shared with him since childhood.
Whitfield died Friday at 101 years
of age and Morris turned to what
he knows best, the homespun tales
heard on his grandfather's knee in
eulogizing the man he called Papa.
In the South when we say
someone is a "real character"
we know exactly what is meant.
Papa, Curtis M. Whitfield, was
a real character. There was
never a dull moment with him.
He knew how to live life in a big
wa).
Friends of mine who never
met him will say, 'Tell us a
Papa story." They love hearing
about him and his determined
spirit. Today I thought I'd share
a few of these stories.
One that I often heard was
about a certain pet that Papa
thought my older cousins


needed. The story goes that
when Ray, Edward and Carl
were little he was over in West
Florida visiting his family and
his nephew was getting rid of
a Billy goat. Well, Papa got it
in his mind that his grandsons
needed this goat and it would be
the perfect pet to pull them in a
wagon. But he had one obstacle.
He was traveling in his white
Corvair car.
But we all know when
he made up his mind to do
something, there was no
stopping him. He pushed and
shoved until he got that goat in
the backseat and rolled down
the windows. And then off they
went, driving down Highway
27 for two hours, with that goat
hanging out of the car window.
For years, my grandmother
laughed about seeing Papa's car
round the comer of Elm Street
and seeing nothing but that goat
with his neck stretched outside
the car window. I can only
imagine what the car smelled


like the next morning when he
got into it.
And decades later when
macular degeneration robbed
him of his eyesight it could not
rob his determined spirit. Losing
his eyesight was probably the
most difficult thing for him and
when many of us might have
tossed in the towel and retreated
to the comer, Papa did not.
Not to be outdone by having
to give up his truck and driver's
license, he turned to his
lawnmower...now we all know
he kept an immaculate yard, but
I'm not talking about driving
his lawnmower on the grass.....
he drove the lawnmower down
North Jefferson Street. And if
he hadn't been stopped, I am
satisfied he would have driven
it all the way to Pouncey's for
lunch.
Papa was determined because
he had to be. Life was not always
easy for him -- particularly in

Bags for Bama delivers


truck of supplies, hope


Dear Taylor County:
It is with overwhelming
gratitude that I thank you for
your assistance with the Bags for
Bama Project.
Due to your generosity, we
were able to deliver a 20 foot
Penske truck full of supplies
to a relief shelter in DeKalb
County, Ala. Shelter volunteers
and victims were ecstatic over
the amounts of food, cleaning
supplies, bottled water, baby
products, linens, Bibles and
hygiene products delivered.
Additionally, $1300 was
donated to the Salvation
Army in DeKalb County to
assist in recovery efforts. This
community has always been
spirited with the belief of
helping others, and because of
your belief, many people are on
the road to rebuilding not only
their houses, but their lives.
Many community partners
and corporations assisted
with this project to ensure
its success. Penske Truck
Rentals donated the moving
truck for the transportation of
goods,, which fulfilled a huge
need. A special thanks to our
collection locations: Boys &
Girls Clib- Veterans Park;
Buckeye Community Federal


Credit Union; Capital City
Bank; K-Mart; Taylor County
Extension; Taylor County Health
Department; Taylor County
Public Library; and Taylor
Gymnastics, Cheerleading, and
Dance.
Additionally, our gratitude
is extended to the following
organizations that assisted
with the project: Advanced
Refrigeration, First Presbyterian
Church, First United Methodist
Church, Parrotheads of
Perrydise, Perry Newspapers,
Steinhatchee School and Daisy
Troop #964. Also, thank you so
much to the countless individuals
who gave of their time, talents
and treasures.
A very special thank you goes
out to Kim Torres for helping
promote and organize the project.
Also, to my parents, Marla and
James Blume, who taught me
to always do the right thing
regardless of the circumstance.
To Chip, who endured 16 hours
in the car when he'd rather have
been walking. And last but not
least, my husband Daryll, who
drove a 20-foot Penske moving
truck up a one-lane road on the
side of a mountain, I thank you
for putting service above self.
When I was 11 years old a


tornado came through the same
area. I knew how terrorizing a
storm like that was, and though
damage was minimal to our
home and our power out for three
days, our next door neighbors
lost everything. I thought I knew
what to expect heading back to
Rainsville this time. I had been
warned since April 27 about the
devastation. I saw pictures and
videos, but to top the hill going
into my childhood city and being
able to see a horizon that was
once blocked by trees, nothing
prepared me for that.
The destruction was
unimaginable. The church
where I spent my summers
going to Vacation Bible School
and where my best friend was
married couldn't even be found.
It was there, only in a different
form. It was piled 40 feet high
on the side of the road with the
other debris. Its foundation was
now being used as a command
post for the utility trucks.
Centuries old trees, homes,
metal and everything in between
lined the sides of the road ready
for removal while the utility
companies worked around it to
run new lines.

Helping Hands group meets with county

commission to discuss animal shelter


Dear Editor:
The volunteers of Helping
Hands of the Shelter,
Inc., invited the county
commissioners and the general
public to join a discussion on
Tuesday, June 14, concerning
the needs and accomplishments
of the Animal Control division
of county government.
Commissioners Malcolm
Page and Mark Wiggins found
the time to attend and participate
in a 30-minute presentation. We
appreciate their participation.
Gayle Ancog spoke to the
need to have trained animal
control officers and how vital
their role is in the health and
welfare of the community. Since
the commissioners had received
statistics regarding the number


of animal intakes, the animals
going to rescue and adoption
and those euthanized, the focus
was on the efforts expended by
Helping Hands of the Shelter,
Inc., to assist Animal Control
inL geting' adinpteabl8e Maia ls
not taken locally to the rescue
groups that would find homes for
them. These efforts contributed
to a nearly 85% reduction in the
euthanization rate. The group
has also provided fans for the
shelter, 24 kennels, vaccines
and disinfectant to provide a
better shelter environment.
Jill Gravel-Bartalini talked
about the efforts expended
to educate the community on
the need to properly care for
animals, provide training and
spay or neuter dogs and cats to
I I


avoid over population and the
spread of disease. She noted
that within the recent past
there have been no outbreaks
of rabies, and she thinks much
of that is due to the efforts of
SAnim'al C~itrdolofieers and
Helping Hands of the Shelter,
Inc., assisting local vets with
discount vaccination clinics,,
The volunteers appreciated
the opportunity to meet with the
commissioners and are willing
to provide information to
absent commissioners Feagle,
Houck and Patterson regarding
the assistance Animal Control
provides to the Taylor County
community.

Midweek Muddle


The funeral of a

vacatioA i


I looked to the left and to the
right. Houses of sun-bleached
colors lined the streets with vibrant
beach towels drying in the crisp air,
while umbrellas shaded friends on
decks.
There were children dragging
floats toward the surf: little girls
with bouncing blonde curls and big
sunglasses, young boys with wet
suits and bare feet.
There were parents leading
smaller children down little pig
trails lined by sea oats and sand
dunes, marked by weathered dune
fencing and occasional clumps of
wildflowers.
There were grandparents wearing
long-sleeved white shirts and floppy
hats, escorting dogs on leashes.
I smelled salt spray, suntan oil and
mesquite-seasoned barbecue coals.
As we passed the rows of beach
houses slowly, each provided a
different sound, music at one and
laughter at another. Silence marked
many: people were sleeping late, or
moving slowly. The palm fronds
made a rushing sound in the winds
and the seagulls squeaked by, flying
effortlessly over the land they loved.
There were people on bicycles,
teenagers on dirt bikes, retirees on
golf carts and runners on foot. The
license plates on trucks, cars and
campers paid tribute to half the
states within the Union.
And then the colors blended like
a tie-dye shirt, as I rolled up the car
window. We were about to cross the
bridge and I had to prepare myself.
I have no deep-seated fear of all
bridges, but I do fear the one at St.
George Island when I'm leaving...
for it marks the conclusion of a


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN

vacation.
It is the concrete, winding
reminder of paradise lost, and
it gives you one, last panoramic
view of all you're leaving behind:
turquoise water, pristine sandy
beaches, solitude and friendship,
shrimp and sweet tea.
To mark my departure, the
pelicans flew in formation, as if
they were the 10-gun salute at the
funeral of vacation.
Fishermen and women lined the
old bridge below, casting all day
and all night long.
They get to stay; I have to leave.
And I grieved.
Parting, Shakespeare wrote,
brings such sweet sorrow...and he
had never been to St. George Island.
I, however, cannot rally my courage
and say, "Until the morrow," because
I don't know when I'll return. Thus,
my grief.
So, instead, I say to the husband:
"I think I may cry."
He wasn't startled; he's heard my
lament enough to pay it no mind.
The St. George Island bridge is a
difficult one for me to navigate.
But he knew I'd be fine by Panacea.
We could eat a sandwich there.
Or drive to St. Marks.
Or stop at Shell Point.
Or go to Spring Creek.
Or visit Wakulla Springs.
There was a good pillow waiting
for me in Perry, and a sweet dog who
needed a walking companion, and
before I knew it, I was looking at the
sunset from a different perspective,
only enhanced by the one I left
behind on a small island that can't
possibly grow much more.
Except in my admiration and love.

Whitfield'paid it forward' and never met a stranger


A REAL CHARACTER
Continued from page 1
his younger years. Growing
up in basically a single parent
household, before such a phrase
was ever coined and certainly
before government assistance --
Papa had to forego an education
to go out and work to help
support his family. And it just
wasn't him....all of his brothers
worked and their mother too.
They worked because they had
to eat.
Life would turn out to be
his classroom and he learned
it well. With each decade of
his life he learned more and
strove to be more. When he
was selling cars at Dekle Motor
Company, he worked his way
up to sales manager. And then
another Perry businessman,
Mr. Henry Dorsett, showed up
and became another teacher in
this classroom of life that Papa
studied in.
Mr. Dorsett encouraged
him to start his own
business--he even gave him the
loan to make it possible. Then in
his forties, Papa left the security
of a weekly income and set off
in the unknown. He started his
logging business. And I have
to tell you all, I have grown up
hearing that story most of my
life and it means even more to
me now that I, too, am in my
40s. So let me assure you, that
risk he took in middle age with a
family to provide for took guts.
Only recently have I learned
that like Mr. Dorsett, Papa paid
it forward....As his business
grew, he became an encourager
to new business owners in Perry.
My brother, Brian, says that
these business owners still come
up to him, telling him what an
encourager Papa was to them.


Well, Papa was certainly an
encourager to me...Right after
I graduated from college, I
was struggling to find a job. I
finally got an interview with the
Department of Commerce and
one night I received a phone call
from Papa. "Alright," he said.
'Tomorrow morning I want you
to bring me your brochure"...
which of course, is what he
called a resume.
Then without me knowing it,
he got in his blue Ford pickup
and drove up Highway 19 to
Capps. He pulled up to a house
that he'd been told belonged to
the parents of Representative
Sherry Walker--keep in mind,
he had never laid eyes on them
before but that didn't stop him.
He knocked on their door. Her
mother let him in. And for the
next hour he won the Walkers
over and asked for help on my
behalf. Her mother would say,
"I just loved him. He reminded
me of my own daddy." And
guess what?
A week later, I had an
interview for that job...It was his
determined spirit at work but I
think it also shows the devotion
he had in helping his family.
That particular story also
shows how he never met a
stranger. He would always tell
me..."just remember you're just
as good as the next person" and
"if God is for you then who can
be against you?" That is the way
Papa approached life. He didn't
let his lack of education hold
him back.
And he certainly did not let it
hold him back from trying new
things. Papa was always eager to
try new technology. I remember
as a little boy watching as three
men struggled to carry his new
TV into the house. It was as big
as a bed and had a remote control

and had worked his way up to sales manager when Henry
Dorsett encouraged him to start his own business...


which he did.
that looked like something from
a space ship. When most people
were still watching black and
white televisions with rabbit
ears, he went out and purchased
a color remote control TV.
When most people were still
using the oven and discussing
whether microwaves would
cause your heart to stop beating,
Papa went out and bought a
microwave. He even had one of
the first instant cameras before
anybody else in town did. And
I am satisfied that if macular
degeneration would not have not
robbed his eyesight he would
have his own Facebook page.
In fact, I am certain he'd have
more Facebook friends than me.
He loved his friends and


cherished them, particular
the members of this church. I
remember how he would relish
in the choir members who came
caroling at his house and the
stacks of Christmas cards the
church sent him. They'd always
be stacked right next to his easy
chair where he would look at
them over and over.
He loved his church and he
loved this city. People still say
they miss seeing him riding
down the road in his blue
Ford, his Stetson cocked to the
side of his head and waving at
everybody he passed. To him
everybody in Perry was his
friend and he had a story ready
for them.
Hands down, Papa was


absolutely the best storyteller
I've ever known. The way
he'd scoot to the edge of his
easy chair and wave his hand
was hypnotic. He could make
history come to life and because
of it, I feel like I know all of the
relatives who have come before
me.
In fact, he was such a good
storyteller that he knew just the
parts that needed embellishing
or "dressing up a little bit," as
he put it.
He had a good, long life and
he was ready to move on to
heaven for his next adventure.
Not too long ago, he told my
cousin Edward that he didn't
understand why he was living
so long. Papa said, "I know your
grandmother is up in heaven,
wondering where in the world
is Curtis? What is taking Curtis
so long to get here?"....And
then Papa paused, shrugged his
shoulders and said..."I don't
know...I reckon she thinks I
went to hell."
Of course, we all know that is
not the case. Papa had an abiding
faith in salvation through
Christ. He looked forward to
heaven.
Was he perfect? No he was
not. He'd be the first to tell you
so.
Did he make mistakes?
Absolutely.
Did he have some regrets? I
am sure that he did.
But he lived his
life --particularly the second
half of his life--with a deep faith
in the forgiveness and grace that
he found through Jesus. One
way that his faith was evident
was his prayers. I was always
amazed at how beautiful and
eloquent his prayers were...
It turns out, I was not the only
one.


Soon after been admitted
to the nursing home, he asked
the staff if anyone was going
to grace the food. They said,
"Why don't you do it?" so his
prayers became a ritual before
every meal was served. A
cafeteria worker reported that
the room would grow quiet and
even those with severe dementia
would bow their heads as he
prayed. This same worker told
us how much she appreciated
hearing his prayers and what a
blessing they were to the staff.
You know every single time
that I visited him, he would
always tell me that he was
praying for me. "I pray for all
y'all," he'd say. He loved his
family and often said that if
he erred, it was in constantly
wanting us around him.
During one of my last visits
with him, he told me that he
dreamed of us too. He said that
his family filled his sleeping
hours--memories he had of our
times as a family. It struck me
because he didn't know it, but
just a few weeks before I had
dreamed of him.
In my dream I was at my
grandparents' house, standing
in their living room. Everything
was just like it had been when
I was a boy, even that big TV
was still there. Papa and Mother
were sitting in their recliners.
Through the screen door I could
see the lush St. Augustine grass
that he meticulously cared for
and the blooming azalea bush
that wrapped around the big
pine tree.
When I woke up, I remember
feeling a deep peace--a peace
like I haven't felt in a long
time.
And so it goes...he dreamed
of us and now he will live in my
dreams.

JOBLESS RATE
Continued from page 1


In November, when the
current upward trend began,
there were only 7,759
people employed in the
county.
AWI's figures also showed
there were 923 people
unemployed in May out of a
labor force of 9,190, the third
consecutive month the number
of unemployed was under 1,000
after 18 straight months above
that mark.
The number of initial
unemployment claims,
however, rose in May to 107,
after remaining in the 70s in
April and March.
For those seeking
employment, Workforce's
mobile career lab is located in
the Perry K-Mart parking lot
each Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday.
Among Florida's 67
counties, Taylor had the 31st
highest unemployment rate in
May, the third straight month it
has been at that level.
FlaglerCountyremainedatthe
top of the list with 13.8 percent
while Monroe County
boasted the lowest rate
with 6.3 percent.
Among Taylor's neighbors,
Dixie County had the highest
unemployment rate with 11.4
percent, followed by Madison
County with 10.8 percent,
both increases over April's
figures.
Below Taylor were Jefferson
County at 8.3 percent and
Lafayette at 7.1 percent,
both showing decreases
compared to April.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate in May was
10.6 percent, the lowest since
August 2009 when it was also
10.6 percent.
The state's unemployment
rate was down 0.2 percentage
point from the April
rate of 10.8 percent and was
0.7 percentage point lower
than the May 2010 rate of 11.3
percent.
The number of jobs in the
state was up 24,900 over the
year, an increase of 0.3 percent
from May 2010.


33-acre fire contained on Dark Island


AREA WILDFIRES
Continued from page 1
Florida's dry weather since
i-te -bg Rning -.,qf, ,May, has
caused extreme fire activity.
Since May 1, DOF has battled
more than 1,500 wildfires which
have burned nearly 200,000
acres across the state, making
it one of the busiest wildfire
years in recent history. Florida
firefighters face an average of
more than 31 new wildfires
every day.


Locally, a 33-acre, lightning-
started fire was reported off
Beach Road on Dark Island
Friday. It was declared 100
percent contained in,the early
morning hours of Saturday.
According to Parker, the
fire was still producing a large
amount of smoke Monday and
an additional 3,500 gallons was
used.
Also on-scene were the
Beaches Volunteer Fire
Department, Taylor County
Fire-Rescue, the Jena/


Steinhatchee Fire Department,
Dixie.County Fire Department
and Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Additionally, a fire .off
County Road 14 and U.S. 98,
south of Old Cabbage Grove
Fire Tower, previously reported
to have burned 23 acres,
ultimately consumed 75 acres.
It is considered 100 percent
contained.
As of Tuesday, the Perry
District was monitoring nine
fires in its four-county area.


IRS would not take back seized money


Joplin fund-raiser a success
The Perry Rotary Club and Pizza Hut recently teamed
together to raise money for those affected by the
Joplin, Mo., tornado. Shown above are Rotarians Mark
Viola (left) and Zach Cone. Perry Resident Windell
Ezell's grandson, Jonathon Ezell, was one of several
employees working at one of two Joplin Pizza Huts
destroyed by the storm. Two of his co-workers were
killed and Ezell was hospitalized due to injuries he
suffered. NPC International, which owns the Pizza Hut
franchise here, also owns the one in Joplin and has a
Relief Fund established to help its employees affected
by the storm, including Ezell. All day Thursday, June
2, customers at Pizza Hut here who used a coupon
distributed by the Rotary Club had 20 percent of their
purchase price donated to help the fund. The event
raised $275.


DCA has final approval


5-YEAR DISPUTE
Continued from page 1
The parties reached the
agreement in April just before
the issue was to go before Gov.
Rick Scott and the Florida
Cabinet.
The commission held a
pair of public hearings on the
amendments. No one from the
public spoke and commissioners
unanimously approved both
amendments.
They will now be forwarded
back to DCA for final approval,
which is expected soon since
the agency already approved the
stipulated settlement agreement
and no one spoke out against
the amendments.
At issue are two previous
comprehensive plan
amendments which DCA found
not in compliance with state
law in 2009. The county and the
property owners maintained that
the purpose of the amendments
was to correct errors made more
than 20 years ago in the plan's
future land use map (FLUM)
when the original working


copy of the FLUM was reduced
in size to the one presently
utilized.
The first amendment
concerns some 14 acres owned
by Hutchins and the other 3.36
acres owned by the Woods
family on Bird Island. In both
cases, the landowners said
their property was supposed
to be labeled mixed-use urban
development, but due to the
errors was not.
Under the stipulated
settlement agreement and the
amendments approved June 6,
the county's comprehensive
plan will reflect a designation of
mixed-use urban development
for both properties, but will
include a notation referring to a
site specific element referencing
the parcels and the requirements
of the agreement.
The site-specific element will
state that until centralized sewer
is provided to the parcels, the
maximum allowable density
will be four units per acre and
once sewer is available, the
density will increase to 10 units
per acre.


TAX SCAMMER
Continued from page 1
Bean granted Jarvis' request
and modified Wingard's
sentence to 30 months'
probation.
The U.S. Marshall's Service
was expected to pick up
Wingard today (Wednesday)
and return him to federal
custody.
In January, Wingard
pled guilty to charges of


racketeering, money laundering
and conspiracy related to a
fraudulent IRS income tax
return scheme funneled out of
local FDOC institutions.
"The suspects, both DOC
inamtes at the time, were
filing false tax returns using
the stolen identifications
of other inmates-their
names and Society Security
numbers. One of the suspects,,
Timothy Coughlin, said that
they had received as much as


Get in Sha


$3 million from the scheme.
"We seized a total of $210,000
in cash and money in bank
accounts...and the IRS would
not take it back. They said
they did not a procedure to
accept the money and told us
(the investigators) to keep it.
Each defendant in the case
agreed to waive claim on the
money and forfeit it," Jarvis
said.
"It will be used to enhance
law enforcement investigations."

Lessons from Father's Day 2011:




Being the Dad he didn't have


Serial entrepreneur
Entrepreneur, philanthropist and author Bob Williamson (left) signs copies of
his books following a talk before several dozen Perry-Taylor County Chamber of
Commerce members Friday. Williamson spoke about his rise from drug addiction to
becoming a "serial entrepreneur" who has founded 11 successful businesses.
Overcoming alcohol, drugs and violence, Williamson said he accepted Jesus Christ
:and turned his life around. His latest venture is a $30 million hospitality business
which includes a resort and spa built on Honey Lake Plantation in Madison County.
Shown above with Williamson are Margie Rawls and Deidra Newman.

By DEBORAH SHEFFIELD
Sunday was Father's Day.
And to all you dads who show
your love and caring for your
children, I applaud you!
My daddy was Wiley
Andrew "Andy" Sheffield and
he died April 16, 1968. I only
knew him growing up as the
picture of the nice man in the
suit (who resembled me) that
sat upon my Grandmother's
piano for as long as I can
remember.
When I came to visit,
Grandma would always
introduce me as "Andy's girl"
and I remember often bowing
my head and feeling the flush
of redness when she did that.
You see, I knew from age 5
or 6 how my daddy died. Once
waiting for the bus at Gladys
Morse Elementary in the late
1960's, a kid said to another
how my daddy died.
I was very upset, and as I
have told before, ran to Sue
Cannon's house across the
street where she rocked me and
let me cry. When "land where
my fathers died" was sung each
morning during chapel at
school, I bowed my head and
would not sing those words.
But over the years, I have
grown to know the man my
daddy was: kind, generous,
considerate, handsome,
athletic, understanding,
sensitive, and caring. That's all
I need to know to understand
that my daddy was the best
daddy that ever lived!
I know that my brother and I
were on his mind when he died,
and if I could tell him one thing
as the woman I am today...I
would say, "Daddy, it was not
better for us that you went
away."
His presence in my life has
been missed for 43 years! I am
not the woman I would have
been had he continued to be my
daddy in my life...which brings
me to an excerpt I wanted- to
share with you:


A Message from the
President:
About Kids-- not
Politics
President Obama wrote an
essay about being a father and
about growing up without his
own dad in People magazine
this month.
The essay can also be found
on the computer at
People.com/article and is
entitled "Being the Father I
Never Had."


By Deborah Sheffield


Here is what our President
says about being a father to his
two daughters and to all dads:
"They need our time,
measured not only in the
number of hours we spend with
them each day, but what we do
with those hours.
"I've learned that children
don't just need us physically
present, but emotionally
available--willing lo listen and
pay attention and participate in
their daily lives.
"Children need structure,
which includes learning the
values of self-discipline and
responsibility."
What we don't hear among
all the political warfare these
days is that our President and


his wife make sure that their
daughters do their chores, make
their beds, do their homework
and take good care of the dog.
When the President is not
meeting with Heads of State,
making policy decisions,
fighting with an obstinate
Congress and leading military
actions, he is an assistant
elementary basketball coach
for Sasha--his daughter.
That puts him courtside
questioning referee calls,
leading practice drills, and
giving high fives to 10 year-
olds who play their hearts out
running up and down the
basketball court!
To all of you dads ... be
generous with your time and
your heart for your children;
teach them by what you do, for
that is louder than any words
you could yell.
Like our President says
above, spend time with them
and make that time well
worthwhile...teach them to be
responsible and to love living
by the way that you live your
life.
There is no recipe today...just
a recommendation: Dads
(when the weather is a little
cooler) join your kids outside
and throw a ball, draw on the
driveway with sidewalk chalk
and grill hamburgers or
hotdogs in the backyard or at a
local park to create memories
that will last forever.
The President has a focus for
dads in America and has
created a support network for
you: fatherhood.gov. The next
time you are on the computer,
w l npoc,.epck out that
website? -
No matter your politics,
hopefully we can agree that a
-successful-man,-our President,
takes work seriously and has
the toughest job in America but
still remains focused upon his
children.
That is a lesson we can all
learn from indeed!


Mary, Mary, quite contrary:

how does your garden grow?

It's hot out there...and landscape experts remind all gardeners to
pay particular attention to recently planted shrubs, trees and plants.
Root zones dry out quickly without' adequate rain, and special
attention is required.
Gardeners are also reminded to mow the lawn weekly and a
little higher in dry weather. Fertilizer use is discouraged during
the summer months except for newly planted areas.
Blueberries, figs and pears are bearing now. Additional
information on these fruits can be found at
edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg211.
If you've wanted to add crape myrtles to your landscape, now is
the time for research. They're blooming (or will be soon) and you
can compare. colors and sizes.

A-5 Taco Times June 22, 2011


Deadly tornado did not take Rainsville's spirit


BAGS FOR BAMA
Continued from page 2
While in the shelter we
met a volunteer who several
decades ago had been to Perry.
He remembered his time here
vividly and shared with us his
story of remodeling our local
McDonald's.
Other stories were not so
uplifting. We experienced an


older couple who had lost
everything, including the
husband's glasses that the
church had helped replace. A
FEMA trailer had just arrived
and the couple was back getting
necessities. Even three weeks
later, the bruises on her face told
the wife's story and her struggle
through the storm. The husband
shared with the volunteers how
one day after the storm they


left to get relief supplies and
food. When they returned home
shortly, looters were rummaging
through the rubble of their home.
A wife and daughter had two
shopping carts full of supplies
and rummaged through what
we had brought before it was
unpacked. With her she took
hygiene products and a Bible.
Another woman came in
with no shoes upon her feet.


Every person who came in
received the same message--
"Take all that you need and if
we don't have it, we'll get it."
There were no government
forms, just people helping
people.
Those who are still interested
in assisting those displaced
by the tornado can make
contributions to Henagar Baptist
Church and designate the funds


for Tornado Relief. Please send
donations to 10240 AL Highway
40, Henagar, AL 35978.
On April 27 an EF-4 tornado
took the lives of 35 people,
injured over 100 more, and left
thousands without power for
days. But it did not take their
spirit. This project allowed us
a great opportunity to witness
God's saving grace and the
promise that no matter what an


earthly life may bring, He is
always going to love and protect
His children.
Thanks again, Taylor County,
for helping ease the difficult
time of pain and suffering
of those displaced by the
storms.
Sincerely,
Dawn Gunter

A-6 The Taco Times June 22, 2011


T-idhifT June is month of transitions


By SARAH HALL
A tribute in memory of a lady who gave of
herself to bring joy to others: Betty Duvall. We
won't forget you! When a Christian dies, earth's
story ends and heaven's glory begins.
Beat the heat!
New Mt. Zion kicked off the summer Vacation
Bible School sessions last week. Currently,
Stewart Memorial A.M.E. Church is holding
classes from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m. June 20-23.
Beat the heat, and attend!
Clothes Closet
The Jerkins Clothes Closet will be open
Friday, June 24, from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Y'all
come.


Prayers
Prayers for comfort and healing for Mary
Bennett and Walter Bishop, at home; and
Corrette Bishop at Tallahassee Memorial.
Put a little love in your heart...
June is the month of transition from the cold of
winter to the heat of summer. We put away coats,
sweaters and blankets and don the flip-flops and
skimpy clothes. Maybe the teeny-weeny bikini
(if we can). Our thoughts are of beaches,
weddings, vacations and far-away places. The
romantic side of us begins to show. We want to
travel and explore.
So carry on but don't forget to prepare for the
extreme heat. Get ready, get ready: Summer is
here.

FWC to conduct Operation Dry Water


this weekend to combat drunk boating


Nick AlIbritton

Campfires banned at

WMAs due to drought


In light of significant
drought conditions and the
increased threat of wildfires,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), in cooperation with the
state Division of Forestry and
other partner agencies, issued
an executive order June 16
prohibiting campfires in wildlife
management areas, wildlife and
environmental areas and all
other lands it manages.
The order went into effect at
12:01 a.m. June 17 and remains
in effect until rescinded by a
subsequent order. The FWC
joins the DOF, the Department
of Environmental Protection
,and.Florida water managemnp
diismcts in ths effort.
"Special regulations are
necessary to mitigate risks to
public safety and to minimize
the likelihood of igniting fires
that will adversely impact
wildlife and wildlife habitat,"


said the order, signed by
Nick Wiley, FWC executive
director.
In its executive order, the
FWC notes that Florida is
experiencing inordinately dry
conditions for this time of year.
"As a result, DOF and FWC
have been fighting multiple
wildfires within wildlife
management areas, wildlife and
environmental areas and other
lands managed by FWC."
If placed openly on the
ground, the fire is considered a
campfire, and therefore barred.
Only, cooking fires contained
in commercially designed
apparatuses are allowed.
Any violatig%,dApjnsideret
a second-degree misdemeanor,
punishable by up to a $500
fine and 60 days in jail. Law
enforcement agencies on each
respective state property are
responsible for enforcing
violations.


Be on the look-out


for manatees while


on Santa Fe River


A pod of Florida manatees
has been spotted on the Santa
Fe River, and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) needs
boaters' help to keep these
animals safe.
"Water levels on the Santa Fe
are extremely low," said Capt.
Roy Brown, area supervisor.
"We're asking boaters to be
extra vigilant when enjoying the
river, especially where this pod
of manatees has been seen."
The FWC said boaters should
scan the water near, and in
front of, their vessel for swirls
resembling large footprints,
a repetitive line of half-moon
swirls, a mud trail or manatee
snouts or tails breaking the


surface.
Boaters can help manatees
stay safe by:
Wearing polarized
sunglasses to improve vision.
Using poles, paddles or
trolling motors when in close
proximity to manatees.
Having someone aboard
to scan the water for signs of
manatees while their vessels are
under way.
"If you think you see a
manatee, give it plenty of room,
because it may not be alone. It
may have a calf or be traveling
with other manatees," Brown
said.
For more information about
manatees, visit MyFWC.com/
Manatee.


The Taylor Soil and Water
Board will host its annual Bay
Scallop Seminar Thursday,
June 23, at 7 p.m. at the
Steinhatchee Community
Center.
Door prizes will be awarded
including a free scallop trip
donated by Scales and Tales
Charters.


Taylor County Sea Grant
Marine Agent Fred Vose will
be the presenter and will talk
about:
Biology and ecology of bay
scallops;
Update on FWC methods
and annual county data;
Regulations and safety for
scallopers.


Last year, 17 people died
from boating accidents related
to alcohol and drug use in
Florida.
"Alcohol- and drug-
related boating accidents are
preventable," said Capt. Tom
Shipp, of the FWC's Boating
and Waterways Section. "Even
one death is too many."
That is why law enforcement
agencies around the state and
country are participating in
"Operation Dry Water" this
weekend. This nationwide
public-education effort is
designed to prevent alcohol-
related accidents and fatalities..
FWC officers, along with local
law enforcement and the U.S.
Coast Guard, will crack down
on boating under the influence
(BUI) violations.
"While our officers always
look for BUIs," Shipp said,
"this weekend, they are making
a special effort to stop this
dangerous activity."
2009 was the inaugural year
Jfr.thi effort, and the program's
effectiveness made repeating
it worthwhile. Last year,
agencies in all 50 states and
six U.S. territories participated,
interacting with more than
60,000 boaters and taking 322
impaired operators off the water
before they could kill or injure
themselves or someone else.
The FWC alone arrested 12
boaters for BUI.
"We know that increased
officer effort reduces boating
accidents and saves lives.
Saving lives is what 'Operation
Dry Water' is really all about,"
Shipp said.
The FWC reminds boaters
to be careful this weekend.

to drink or who are impaired by
drugs are a great danger to the
boating public.
"Being under the influence of
alcohol or drugs impairs a boat
operator's vision and reaction


time," Shipp said. "Sun, wind,
fatigue and other conditions can
intensify the effects alcohol or
drugs have on a boater."
Intoxicated boaters are also
susceptible to injuries or falling

overboard because of impaired
coordination and balance.
"If you're caught boating
under the influence, you may
be fined and jailed, your boat
may seized, and you could lose
your boating privileges," Shipp
said. "But most importantly,
you are risking your life, the
lives of your passengers and the
lives of other people out on the
water."
The FWC reminds boaters
that they are responsible for
making decisions that keep
themselves and others safe.
"We want everyone to have a
great time and stay safe on the
water," Shipp said. "Carelessly
choosing to operate a boat while
impaired is a decision that can
result in a tragic ending to an
otherwise wonderful day on the
water."

gets snipped.


gets saved.


gets sales!


With so many advertising

mediums dividing the attention of

potential customers, newspapers remain

the most effective source

for reaching consumers.


Why?

Simply put, newspapers reach more

people, more often. Highly portable

and highly visible, newspaper ads go

with people and stay with them.

your advertising dollars, make the

choice that's tried and true: newspaper

advertising works harder for you.
