Shane Boggs, who led the
Taylor County High football
program to a district title and an
11-1 record this past season, has
taken the head coaching job in
his home county in Tennessee.
Boggs informed his players
Tuesday morning that he had
taken the head coaching position
at Tennessee High School in
Bristol, Tenn.
Boggs came to Taylor County
in 2009 to try and re-energize
a program that had not done
better than a .500 season since
winning the state championship
in 1997.
Boggs did that in his first
season, leading the Bulldogs to
a 7-4 record including a state
playoff appearance.
Last season, the Bulldogs
recorded a perfect 10-0 regular
season record including a
long-missed district title. The
Bulldogs moved on into the
state playoffs before narrowly
losing in the second round.


While Boggs graduated
from Sullivan Central High
School, he is taking the job at
cross-county rival Tennessee
High.
Tennessee High's longtime
Coach Greg Stubbs stepped
down late last month after 10
seasons due to medical reasons.
Stubbs, 59, recorded a 94-
27 record during his tenure
including four conference
championships and three
undefeated seasons.
Boggs ws born in Bristol
and grew up a few miles south
in Blountville. His mother still
lives there while his brother
coaches in the Bristol City
School system. His wife did her
student teaching at Tennessee
High.
"This truly is a dream job
for me. They have outstanding
facilities and a winning
tradition," Boggs said.
Boggs said his players'
reactions Tuesday morning


Curtis and Nelda Tedder celebrated their 67th
wedding anniversary June 23--two days before a fatal
car accident claimed both their lives.


were across the board.
"Some were disappointed but
respectful and happy for me.
Others were upset with me. It's
been a very emotional day," he
said.
Boggs plans to continue work
through Thursday.
Supt. Paul Dyal said Boggs
informed him and TCHS
Principal Michael Thompson
early Tuesday morning.
"He believes it's the best
move for him and his family
to get back home. I told him
I appreciated what he did for
Taylor County High School
and the football program," Dyal
said.
Dyal said the TCHS football
team has next week off from
summer workouts which buys
a little time in searching for a
replacement.
"We are certainly going to
look in-house first. We have
several good candidates," Dyal
said.


Couple ki


On Thursday, June 23, Curtis
and Nelda (Hendry) Tedder
celebrated their 67th wedding
anniversary.
Both descendants from a long
line of pioneer Taylor County
families, the couple attended
and graduated from Taylor
County schools before moving
to Tallahassee to build a life
together.
But they returned to
their hometown time and
again-too many times
to count-for family and
community events.
Most recently, they were
among those celebrating
the annual Homecoming at
Pleasant Grove Baptist Church
where Curtis got up and sang


Perry woman, 71, seriously


injured in Monday wreck


A 71-year-old Perry woman
was airlifted from the scene of
a two-vehicle crash Monday
afternoon on U.S. 19 south of
Perry.
Velma Towles was traveling
north on U.S. 19 about seven
miles south of Perry when her
vehicle was struck from behind
by a pickup driven by Clinton
Smith, 37, of Tampa.


According to a report from
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper
Bill Ernst, Smith was traveling
north in the outside lane.
Towles was driving "much
slower" than Smith in the same
lane, Ernst said. Smith's pickup
struck Towles' vehicle in the


rear.

Full-time ambulance service


in Steinhatchee starts Friday


A ribbon cutting ceremony
Friday morning will mark
the beginning of full-
time ambulance service in
Steinhatchee.
The ceremony will be held
at 10 a.m. at the Steinhatchee
fire house, which the county is
leasing to Doctors' Memorial
Hospital to house the ambulance
and its personnel.
The fire house is located on
12th Street N.E.
Last week, county
commissioners approved the
lease agreement, under which


DMH will pay the county $10 a
year and will be responsible for
utilities and renovations.
The board desires DMH
to provide [advanced life
support] ambulance service to
Steinhatchee and the beaches
area," County Administrator
Jack Brown said.
"Allowing DMH to utilize
the county fire house with
them paying for utilities and
renovations and the county
charging a nominal lease
amount will help DMH be able
to provide this service."

The fire house has been
empty since Taylor County
entered into an interlocal
agreement with Dixie County
in 2009 to share fire services
for Steinhatchee and Jena, with
firefighters stationed in the Jena
fire house.
As part of the agreement,
fire-rescue personnel have
been responding to emergency
medical calls and stabilizing
patients until they could be
transported by either DMH
emergency medical services
(EMS) or Dixie County EMS.
According to Doctors'
Memorial Hospital CEO
Richard Huth, the number of
ambulance calls has been on the
rise, necessitating an increase to
the hospital's ambulance fleet

"Amazing Grace."
On Saturday, June 25, the
couple was once again in Perry,
this time to attend Nelda's 66th
high school reunion.
Their daughter, Rebecca Ray,
had driven them to Perry and
they were returning home when
a car pulled into their path at the
intersection of U.S. 27 South
and Chaires Crossroad in Leon
County.
The resulting crash sent all
five involved to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital. The driver
of the other vehicle, a 17-year-
old, and her passenger, a six-
year-old boy, were treated and
released. Ray sustained serious
injuries and was admitted for
treatment. The Tedders died at


the hospital.
Curtis was 87 and Nelda was
83.
Both were active members
of First Baptist Church in
Tallahassee and Nelda, who was
an interpreter for the deaf, was
a familiar face to many during
the regular Sunday television
broadcasts (on WCTV Channel
6) of morning worship services.
"Her daughter, Rebecca,
followed in her mother's
footsteps, joining her in a
ministry for the deaf. She also
works as an interpreter," nephew
Auley Rowell said.
Rebecca remained in the
hospital recovering as of

'Miss Betty' has her



white wings and halo


Dear Editor:
I walked in her shoes.
Sometimes we so easily go
about our daily lives without a
glancing thought to "Who did
that?"
At funerals of children some
people say, "We know how you
feel." Without having lost a
child. I was in line to comfort
a grieving parent of his only
child, when someone uttered
those, "We know how you feel"
words. The father responded,
"No you don't!" And there is no
truer statement. If we have not
walked in their shoes, we do not
know.


Miss Betty Duvall died this
week. I walked in her shoes.
Miss Betty's husband lay flat
on his back for five years. He
was a large man and she was
very short. For five years she
cared for his every need. She
got a waterbed so that it would
be easier to turn him when
giving him a bath. One day she
bounced the bed just a little too
hard. That man nearly flew off
the bed.
When she finally asked for
help, the HRS worker told them
to get a divorce. Miss Betty's
husband cried, "You wouldn't
do that Momma, would you?"


She never did.
When Miss Betty's shadow
fell upon my door eight years
ago, there was no halo or large
white fluttering wings. But,
nonetheless she was an angel in
disguise.
In 2004,I began caring for my
stroke victim husband. His so-
called friends stopped coming
to see him after six months and
I stopped returning their calls
for.updates of his condition. But
Miss Betty stopped by almost
every day. He laughed, like a
three-year-old at Christmas,

Veterans richly
deserve quality
local health care
Dear Editor:
Amen to Bob Jones' Letter
to the Editor last week on the
closing of the VA center here in
Perry. A few veterans I spoke to
didn't even know it was here.
Taylor officials and residents
remember this: "Only two
defining forces have ever
offered to die for you. Jesus
Christ and the American
soldier. One died for your soul,
the other for your freedom."
--Lt. Col Grant L. Rosensteel Jr.
Can we try just a little harder
for those that made it through
or served this great nation to
receive the quality local health
care they so richly deserve?

Hail to the Chief(s)


The United States of America, to date,
has had 44 Presidents. I have personally
lived through the terms of 11. When
you put it in that kind of perspective,
this country is really young.
Or I'm really old.
I am, indeed, old enough to remember
nine of the 11, and this is what I recall:
John F. Kennedy
I vividly remember the day John F.
Kennedy was assassinated.
My aunt was a second grade teacher
in the school I attended, and she was
delivering me home that day. A quiet
had fallen upon the school like none I
had ever experienced.
"The President was shot today," she
said to me and her only son, as we
pulled out of that dusty parking lot in
her white, winged Che\Tolet.
"My daddy never liked him," I said
from the back seat.
She slowed down and burned holes
through my head by staring at me in the
rear view window and reminding, "But
your father would never want this kind
of harm to come to anyone, especially
the President of the United States."
"Yes ma'am," I said then, and I still
say.
I love teachers. I was reared by them.
You never have to wonder what they're
thinking. They give directions in their
sleep, and have eyes with flexible stems
which allow 360-degree vision. Their eyes
are positioned next to their miraculous
ears which provide surround-sound.
They are equipped with a mental class
roll and report card. You are never
without room for improvement in the
presence of a teacher.
In the days which followed the
President's assassination, my fellow
students and I watched the televised
funeral procession, never fully
understanding the sadness which had
befallen our country. And certainly,
in the midst of "The Wonder Years,"
we never realized that from that day
forward, life in America would change.
We had crouched under our desks for
drills leading up to the Bay of Pigs.
We had built bomb shelters and
collectively feared Kruschev.
And now our President was dead.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Suddenly, Lyndon B. Johnson was in
office and, lo and behold, he and his
wife had Southern accents--I thought
we might be related. While her
husband fought battles of international
significance, the First Lady called "Lady
Bird" put Keep America Beautiful in
the spotlight, which, in turn, put all the
stacks of junk vehicles at risk, as well as
the rats they accommodated.
That's all I remember.
Richard M. Nixon
In America, you either loved or hated
Richard Nixon. There really was no
middle ground. Since political matters
were truly out of my scope of interest
at the time, I'm embarrassed to admit
that I disliked Nixon mostly because
the Watergate hearings interrupted my
summer television viewing pleasure.
This was, of course, prior to my
departure for college where I would
learn to be politically active...from
people who suspected more from this
big, beautiful world than I ever did.
That's not the only impact Nixon
had upon my life. His Watergate trials


prompted half the incoming college
students to declare journalism as their
major just because of Deep Throat,
fame and glory. I, on the other hand,
just wanted to write stuff.
Nothing but stuff.
Gerald Ford
Gerald Ford seemed likeable to me.
People called him clumsy and suggested
he wasn't presidential material, but
isn't it nice to have a human being as a
president? I thought so.
Jimmy Carter
Jimmy Carter was the first President
I ever helped to elect. As much as
I still find Mr. Carter pleasant and
approachable, I always thought he ran
the country like a Southern Baptist
Sunday School., The only problem was
that the infidels around the world didn't
know a thing about Sunday School. Or
care.
That ended up being a pretty big
problem.
Ronald Reagan
I remember enjoying the Reagan
Revolution and found it so interesting
that I could like either a Democrat or
a Republican. Isn't this country great?
I also recall that my Mother longed
for Nancy Reagan's hand-me-downs.
"I could wear that suit," she would
say of the First Lady's every televised
appearance.
Two Bushes, a Clinton and an Obama
When I became part owner of a small
business and found a great deal of
people owing me money while driving
better cars than mine, and taking
trips I couldn't afford, I leaned more
intentionally toward the Republican
party. It wasn't greed, as some would
surely suggest; it was a matter of
fairness. I have stayed that course
through two Bushes and an Obama.
Before he declared his candidacy for
President of the United States, I heard Bill
Clinton speak at the Excelsior Hotel in
downtown Little Rock, Ark., addressing
the National Newspaper Association. I
later learned that he had conducted
other business at the Excelsior which
didn't bring much honor to the top
office of the country. I have difficulty
forgetting that detail.
I fervently believe that I still vote less
by party and more by heart. It doesn't
matter if you're a Whig or a Federalist, a
Democrat or a Republican.
Show me your heart, and I'll show you
mine.
That's how George Washington
became the very first President of the
United States, and maybe it's the way
it should be 200 years later when we're
second-guessing the validity of the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Too much went right in the previous
200 years for us to assume, now, that
it was all wrong. It's the distortions of
the pure that are all wrong, and they
can be put back right too--by people
with Southern accents or New England
brogues, people who are clumsy or
naive, people who are from presidential
families or families we've never heard
of.
I never laugh when a first grader says
he or she wants to be President of the
United States of America. For 44 people
in this country's red, white and blue
history, it's a dream that came true.
God bless America.

County receives $100,000 grant for

parking lot project at Keaton Beach


The county commission has
approved a grant agreement
for $100,000 in state funds to
help with the parking lot at the
Keaton Beach Coastal Park,
which will serve overflow from
the adjacent public boat ramp.
The county is matching the
Florida Boating Improvement
Program (FBIP) grant with
$147,000 of local funds
along with a $17,000 in-kind
match. Facing a challenging
budget process next month,
commissioners were quick to
point out during their June 21
meeting that the matching funds
were earmarked last year and
not "new money."
The construction of the
parking lot was delayed after
the commission rejected the two
bids submitted last month for


the parking facilities because
they greatly exceeded the
project's budget.
While County Engineer
KennetlDudley said staff had
hoped the bids would come in
around $300,000, the eventual
bids totaled $556,000 and
$933,000.
Commissioners instructed
Dudley to re-engineer the
project to reduce costs and re-
advertise the project.
According to Dudley, the
original plans had called for the
use of permeable pavers rather
than asphalt to provide better
drainage and allow the county
maximize the available land on
the property.
Dudley said they would
need to see where they could
increase the use of asphalt to


reduce the cost, which would in
turn require them to change the
project's drainage plans.
He said the changes
would also require a
modification to the county's
permit with the Suwannee
River Water Management
District.
According to the original
designs, the parking lot will
include spaces for 52 vehicles
and trailers. The current parking
lot at the boat ramp has 44
spaces.
The county acquired the 44-
acre Keaton Beach Coastal Park
site in 2008 with a $3 million
Florida Communities Trust
Program grant. As part of the
grant, the county committed to
a series of improvements to the
site over a 10-year period.


Burn ban remains in place


Afternoon thunderstorms
have become regular visitors to
the county over the past week,
bringing much needed rain to
help alleviate the fire danger
here and across the region.
The storm cells have tended
to be small ones, with some
areas of the county receiving
an inch or more at times while
nearby locales received none.
While the county's Keetch-
Byram drought index was down
only slightly this week compared
to last week--633 compared
to 649--the percentage of the
county above 700 was down
significantly, from 32 percent
to 13 percent. More than 60
percent of the county, however,


still remained between 600 and
700. The index measures the
dryness of soil, and runs from 0
to 800.
Taylor County remains under
a bur ban which prohibits
all outdoor burning, unless
authorized by the Florida
Division of Forestry (DOF),
including the burning of yard
trash, household paper products,
bonfires, campfires, warming
fires and cooking fires.
Outdoor cooking within a
contained gas or charcoal grill
(excluding a fire pit) is exempt
from the ban. Also exempt
are licensed fireworks displays.
The ban will remain in effect
until repealed by the county

According to DOF Wildfire
Mitigation Specialist Chelsea
Parker, Monday's storms caused
three fires in the Perry District,
one in Taylor County and two in
Dixie County.
Two of the fires, including
the one in Taylor, have been
declared controlled, meaning
they are "dead out," Parker said.
Four of the eight fires active
fires in the Perry District were

Why go to church?
The church is the, greatest
influence in a community.
Therefore, it needs your
support. The church is one of
the oldest established


institutions throughout the
world. .It may be known by
other names, but wherever a
temple, a cathedral or a house
of worship is established, it
makes for a better city, a better
town, a better community, a
better people.
The church represents a
group of people like you and
me. Its mission is to build
body, soul and spirit. It starts
with children, training them in
the better things of life and
throws its doors wide open to
all races, colors and creeds.
The church needs you, and
you need the church.

For illegal taking of deer, alligator


Facebook photos lead to arrest


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators arrested
a Tampa man June 17 after
receiving a complaint about
photos that had been posted on
Facebook.
The complaint said that a deer
and alligator had been freshly
killed and that the suspected
hunter, Kyle Edwards, 21, was
also in the photos.
The animals allegedly were
killed near Bronson in Levy
County on private property
north of Otter Creek.
FWC Investigator James
Smith interviewed Edwards,
who stated that on June 10,


he and a friend went to the
property in Otter Creek to camp
and shoot a new AK-47 he had
recently purchased at a Tampa
gun show.
The two men saw an alligator
on the dirt road leading to the
camp, and Edwards shot and
killed it. He explained they
cleaned it, ate some of the meat
and later gave the rest of the
alligator meat to friends. The
carcass was disposed of on a
dump pile near the camp.
The next day, Edwards said,
he shot and killed the deer.
After taking a photograph of
the animal, they repeated the
process by cleaning the deer,


eating some of the meat and
giving the rest to friends. That
carcass also ended up in the
dump pile.
Edwards admitted to posting
the photographs on his Facebook
page and later removing the
photos. He gave Smith a written
statement about the incidents.
FWC investigators were able
to locate and document the two
animal carcasses as evidence in
the case.
Edwards was issued a citation
for taking deer during the
closed season, a first-degree
misdemeanor, and for the illegal
taking of an American alligator,
a second-degree misdemeanor.


By BOB WATTENDORF
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
For my 32 years with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), I have been one of those
folks dealing with the stigma of
"I'm from the government, and
I'm here to help you."
Fortunately, the FWC has an
outstanding public reputation,
and most people who care about
nature and are outdoors enjoying
our resources understand that we
provide a valuable service. FWC
staff manage fish and wildlife
resources for their long-term
well-being and the benefit of
people.
Long ago, resource users
and everyone who benefited
from healthy fish and wildlife
and beautiful natural areas
entrusted governments with the
responsibility of protecting and
sustaining nature. The North
American Model of Wildlife
Conservation describes how
governments pay to ensure safe
and sustainable public fishing
and hunting opportunities and
to conserve wildlife and their
habitats. That model incorporates
the "Public Trust Doctrine."
The Public Trust Doctrine is
part of common law, and each
state customizes it to establish
public rights in navigable waters
and along shores. This is because
people use these common areas
for food, travel and commerce
and need to share them.
The doctrine has three core
principles. First, fish and
wildlife are public resources.
Second, they are managed
for the common good. Third,
trained professionals hold them
in custodianship and serve as
trustees who are accountable to
the public.
In Florida, the state
constitution codifies existing
common law, ensuring the state


holds title to navigable lakes and
streams for use by the people.
The doctrine protects water
bodies that were navigable at the
time of statehood.
Building on this, in 1937,
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
signed the Federal Aid in
Wildlife Restoration Act. This act
has been crucial to implementing
the North American Model
of Wildlife Conservation. In
1950, sportsmen and businesses
teamed with conservation-
minded policymakers to redirect
existing federal excise taxes on
fishing tackle to a new Sport Fish
Restoration Program (aka: SFR,
Dingell-Johnson or Wallop-
Breaux). The concept was to
restore sport fish populations and
improve public access, so more


people can enjoy fishing and
fishing sales would increase.
Today, SFR uses a small
excise tax on fishing reels and
other fishing tackle, as well as
a motorboat fuel tax, to fund
sport-fish restoration and boating
access programs. In Florida, SFR
provided $13 million in 2010, of
which 15 percent went to boating
access.
The bottom line is that the
Public Trust Doctrine, the North
American Model of Wildlife
Conservation, your fishing
license fees and Federal Aid in
Sport Fish Restoration work
hand-in-hand with anglers and
other folks who are concerned
about our natural resources to
ensure safe and sustainable use
for everyone.

Independence Day!


The Declaration of Independence
IN CONGRESS, July 4,1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America.
%\ hen in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers
of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God
entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the
causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the
pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of
Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to
abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and
organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety
and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not
be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that
mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by
abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under
absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to
provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these
Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems
of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated
injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny
over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless
suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he
has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people,
unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right
inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from
the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance
with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his
invasions on the r-iht-. of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby
the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for
their exercise: the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion
from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States: for that purpose obstructing the
Laws for Naturalization iif Flrcviencrs. refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations
hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for
establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the
amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our
people, and cat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our
legislatures.
He has affected to render the M\hIinIj independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and
unacknowledged by our laws; -i iti his A.- ent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should
commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For c utting ,'ff our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For dpri ing uN, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing
therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an
example and fit inr,.runmnit f.r intriduring the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally
the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to
legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War
against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of
our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works
of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy
scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized
nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against
their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves
by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the
inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an
undistinguished destruction ofall ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble
terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose
character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a
free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from
time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over
us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here.
We have appealed to their native justice and. magnanimity, and we have conjured them
by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably
interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice
and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces
our Separation. and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace
Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress,
Assembled. appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions,
do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish
and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent
States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political
connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved;
and that as Free and Independent States. they have full Power to levy War, conclude
Peace. contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which
Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm
reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives,
our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Free concert Thursday
Award winning songwriter and recording artist Anna
Moo will make a special guest appearance at the Taylor
County Public Library this Thursday, June 30, at 2 p.m.
Admission is free. Anna Moo grew up on a sheep ranch
outside of Sacramento, Calif., as a kid, then moved with
her family to Chile and later Venezuela. She said that
having four sisters, an artistic mom, and a dad who
was a world renowned veterinarian, made for a colorful
and adventurous upbringing. After living in New York,
she returned to the quiet countryside near Gainesville,
where she lives with her husband, Terry Moo.


Under new ownership
Wendy Cruce, new owner of Curves in the Taylor Square Shopping Center, recently held a grand re-opening that
