Impact after-school care?


Proposed bus cuts alarm parents


Parents and directors of
local child care centers were
up in arms last .Thursday with
reports that the Taylor County
School District was considering
eliminating afternoon bus runs
which transport students to
local after-school programs-
including the Boys & Girls
Club's main unit located next
the Duck Pond.
More than 100 students, many


in primary and elementary
school, would be impacted by
the change.
"We were told this was an
issue that had been decided,"
Boys & Girls Club Chief
Professional Officer Lisa
English told the Taylor County
School Board during its regular
July meeting Thursday.
"We have not realty had
a presentation from the


transportation department and
we haven't even really discussed
it yet," board member Danny
Lundy said. "I'm not convinced
that we have to go from one end
of the spectrum to the other."
Superintendent of Schools
Paul Dyal said the cost-saving
measure was needed due to a
nearly $2 million reduction in
district funds.
"Right now we are funding


transportation at a rate 80
percent more than the state
allows. We have to cut $68,000
from the transportation budget
for the coming year," he said,
noting that the state does not
fund bus transportation costs
for students who live within
two miles of their schools. (The
majority of after-school care
centers are located within that
two-mile limit.)


"When we asked if we could
pay for the afternoon bus run,
they told us it would cost up to
$3 a day to bring a child from
Perry Primary to the Boys &
Girls Club. That just seems like
a lot," English said.
"The fee would be based
on how the. state calculates
transportation costs," Dyal said.

The Perry Police Department
has won more than $50,000 in
prizes from the Florida La.w

Sgt. Dodd Franklin, left, spearheaded the DUI Challenge campaign which netted the Perry Police Department a
new Chevrolet SUV and more than $17,000 in traffic enforcement safety equipment. Capt. Jamie Cruse praised
Franklin's dedication to the program, which resulted in a reduction of traffic-related crashes, injuries and fatalities.


County holds the line on $50,000


funding reduction for United Way


The Taylor County
Commission's five-year
partnership with United Way
to coordinate the county's
community contributions took
a significant financial hit this
budget season resulting from a
$458,000 drop in property tax
revenues this year. ,
Faced with the task of
avoiding 40-hour furloughs on
Taylor County Sheriff's Office
employees while maintaining a
pledge to refrain from dipping
into reserves to balance the


budget, commissioners last
week cut their funding for
United Way nearly $50,000,
from $70,000 in the current year
to $20,384 in the new budget.
Prior to 2006, the county
commission directly funded
local service organizations such
as the Boys & Girls Club and
Taylor County Senior Citizens
Center. That year, however, the
amount of requests fielded by1
the commission was $223,000,
almost double the $113,000 in
disbursements from the prior


fiscal year.
During budget discussions
that year, commissioners
decided to instead make one
lump sum donation to United
Way and let a citizen allocation
committee determine where to
disburse the funds.
They ultimately gave United
Way $85,000 for the 2006-07
fiscal year. The county also
funded the Perry-Taylor County
Chamber of Commerce $15,000
that year. Commissioners cut
the chamber from its budget last


year.
Subsequently, the county
gave $82,450 for 2007-08,
$82,450 for 2008-09, $70,000
for 2009-10 and $70,000 for
2010-11. The cut in 2009
included some $8,300 which
the commission re-allocated to
cover transportation costs of
the SNAP program at Taylor
Technical Institute.
The commission's funds are
allocated separately from those

Beware: construction ahead
Although work on the new concrete medians along Jefferson Street is not complete, the construction triggered
a one-vehicle crash Friday morning. A driver was apparently attempting to cross Jefferson Street from Baker
Street--a move that is now blocked by the new concrete median. The car was left stuck with its two wheels on
either side of the median. The driver was not injured and the vehicle was towed from the scene.


Commission

reinstates

cemetery

mowing

When Taylor County
Commissioners adjourned their
final budget workshop Monday
evening, the 2011-12 budget
looked very much like it had
two hours prior when they
started, with the general fund
balanced, reserves left intact
and property taxes unchanged
from the current year.
After listening to six members
of the Pisgah Cemetery Board,
the commission made their lone
change to the budget for the
night, earmarking $10,000 out
of the MSTU fund--which is
assessed on properties outside
the cit limits for services
duplicated by the City of
Perry--to reinstate funding to
the county's cemetery mowing
program.
The same could not be said
for United Way--which saw its
allocation cut nearly $50,000
last week during budget
discussions--despite a plea
from Campaign Associate
Glenda Hamby (see related
story).
During the workshop, which
also served as a special meeting,
commissioners unanimously
voted to keep their property
tax millage rates the same for
their general fund (7.0113
mills) and MSTU fund (1.1215
mills). Due to drops in property
values in the county, the county
is expecting $458,000 less
revenue in the general fund and
$58,000 less in the MSTU fund.
The board can still make
changes to the budget at a
pair of public hearings set for
September, but cannot raise the
millage rates now since they set
their proposed rates Monday.
The hearings will be held

Dear Editor:
Well, well. How about these
apples? We finally found out the
truth--there is no money tree in
the White House's back yard.
So, what do we do? Lord, Lord
what can we do?
Oh! I know. Mr. Obama has
a plan. Withhold all Social
Security checks for August!
That ought to balance the
budget.
Ssssshhh! Don't tell anyone
but, that really won't balance
the budget. But, it will throw a


curve ball into the opposition.
You know, all those folk that are
trying to look into fraud, waste,
special interest and stopping
earmarks (pork). Hey! You
know, the officials who were
elected--"mostly" Republicans
and a "few" Democrats--to stop
the "spending our way out of
debt" run-away train.
Now, I'm aware Mr. President
that most of the people we
send to Washington think that

Dear Editor:
I would like to thank Dr.
Martin Smith for returning my
billfold which I lost in the Gulf
while we were scalloping.
. H.ii...r-' .


check out where the scallops
were. I realized that my billfold
was in my pocket, then it was
gone.
About two weeks later I
received a call from Dr. Smith
of Roanoke, Va. He said, "This
is your lucky day, I found your
billfold."
He mailed everything to me

amazing that someone could
find a billfold in six to seven

Will President

cut from these

fed programs?
Dear Editor:
President Obama said last
week that if Congress does
not increase the debt limit then
he cannot guarantee checks
for Social security, veterans
benefits or health services after
Aug. 2.
But you can bet your golden
bippy that he will not cut one
penny from:
$600,000 for a gurgling toad
sculpture (What is a gurgling
toad, anyway?);
$1 million to post poetry on

Taylor County's Master Gardeners always have a project in
progress, and a project to come. While they continue their efforts
at landscape improvement around Forest Capital Hall, they are
also looking toward planting blueberries and fruit trees at the Perry
Community Garden.
Four new 4 x 16 foot beds were built in the spring, which are
available for anyone to rent for the low cost of $15 per growing
season.
"We are planning to use one bed for blueberries, which we can
use for demonstrations and workshops as there is a lot of interest
in this area to learn more about growing blueberries," explained
Debbie Ross.
"We also hope to plant some fruit trees at the garden, which is
located at the former Gladys Morse Elementary School. We will
provide more information in the fall when the details have been
worked out."

In Loving Memory of
Chip Sherrod
june 21, 1978-July 28, 2010
Only have a picture now,
A frozen piece of time,
To remind me of
how it was,
When you were here,
and mine.
I see your smiling eyes,
Each morning
when I wake,
I talk to you, and
place a kiss
Upon your loving face.
How much I miss you
being here,
I really cannot say,
The ache is deep
within my heart,
And never goes away.
The angels came
and took you,
That really wasn't fair,
They took my one
and only son,
My future life, my heir.
If only they had
asked me,
If I would take your
place,
I would have done
so willingly,
Leaving you this
world to grace.
You should have
had so many years,
ib watch your life unfold,
And in the mist of this,
Watch me,
your mom grow old.
I know you are watching
from above,
At the daily tasks I do,
And let there be
no doubt at all,
B -- - .. '* - - '

A-6 Taco Times July 27, 2011


NewTahoe is equipped



with mobile breathalyzer


POLICE DEPARTMENT
Continued from page 1


PPD Capt. Jamie Cruse and Sgt. Dodd Franklin are shown with the mobile breathalyzer
unit that was part of the prize package awarded the department from the Florida Law
Enforcement Liaison Program.


$17,500 in points to purchase
traffic safety-related equipment
through the Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT).
"We've already placed our
order and spent $17,495," Cruse
noted.
The Tahoe comes fully
equipped with lights, radar and
a mobile breathalyzer.
"We can test, arrest and
transport on-site," Cruse said.
The vehicle will be used for
traffic and DUI enforcement.
This is the first time the
PPD has been among the top
three agencies in its division.
The recognition was based
on its efforts in developing a


County was authorized to mow cemeteries


by special act of Florida Legislature in 1967


comprehensive traffic safety
program that resulted in a
"significant and positive impact
in the community by reducing
traffic-related crashes, injuries
and fatalities," LEL Director
Kate Nelson said.
The LEL program is a grant-
funded program sponsored by
the FDOT and the National


Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA).
Its goal is to reduce
traffic related fatalities and
injuries by working with law
enforcement agencies across
the state to boost safety belt
use, reduce drunk driving
and encourage traffic safety
initiatives.


CEMETERY MOWING
Continued from page 1
Monday, Sept. 12, and Monday,
Sept. 19, at 6 p.m.
Beginning last week with
a deficit of $396,000 in the
general fund, commissioners
made up the difference with
the most significant cuts
coming from the Taylor County
Sheriff's Office (TCSO), Taylor
County Health Department
(TCHD) and United Way.
Most of the cuts in TSCO
are due to the three percent
reduction in the state retirement
system passed by the Florida
Legislature earlier this year.
Commissioners cut the TCHD,
which is not a county entity, by
$41,000. They also renegotiated
the county's lease-to-own
contract on the lighting for the
Taylor County Sports Complex,
saving some $91,000 next year.
Commissioners were
unable to find the funds to
make employees "whole" on
the three-percent retirement
reductions. This will also mark
the third year county employees
have not seen raises.
As for Monday's meeting,


most of the people in attendance
were from the Pisgah
Cemetery Board, who asked
commissioners to continue the
cemetery mowing program.
Unlike the city, which owns
Woodlawn Cemetery, the
county does not actually owvn
any cemeteries. It has, however,
maintained a number of them
over the years. Although
governments are usually
prohibited from working on
private property, a special act
passed by the Florida Legislature
in 1967 specifically allows the
Taylor County Commission to
maintain cemeteries as long
as they allow the public to be
buried there and don't have
specific requirements for burial,
such as a church affiliation.
The county is currently
helping to maintain five
cemeteries: Springhill, Pisgah,
Poor Spot, Mt. Gilead and New
Hope.
According to County
AdministratorJack Brown, in the
past the county was maintaining
up to 18 cemeteries, but several
have opted out. Several years
ago the county switched from
using private contractors for the


maintenance and began using
the Department of Corrections
(DOC) work crew they have
on contract. This past year the
state required documentation
from the cemetery boards that
they do allow anyone to be
buried in order for work crew
to continue the maintenance.
Pisgah recently submitted their
paperwork bringing the total
being maintained back to five.
Several members of the
cemetery board spoke, pointing
out that in many cases family
members do not help maintain
their relative's plots, leaving it
to the board and ultimately the
county.
"We can't maintain it," one
member said. "We can't afford
to maintain it."
According to County
Administrator Jack Brown, the
county pays DOC $58,000 a
year for the work crew, with
most of that funded through the
road and bridge fund for work
along county roadways. Last
year, $20,750 was budgeted for
cemetery maintenance, which
paid a portion of the work
crew's cost.

Ethelene "Hudson" Whitbeck


last Monday included $19,600,
but that was cut down to $10,000
during the first workshop.
The remainder was taken out
during the second workshop
held Wednesday, essentially
eliminating the program.
Commissioner Malcolm
Page, who noted he has family
buried at Pisgah, suggested
simply paying the entire cost
of the crew out of the road and
bridge fund and maintaining
some level of cemetery service,
if it would be legal to do so.
Clerk of Court Annie Mae
Murphy, however, warned that
since the road and bridge fund
is made up of gas tax revenues,
the county probably couldn't
justify using those funds for
cemeteries.
Then Page suggested using the
MSTU fund, which in the initial
budget was boasting a $35,735
surplus between recurring
revenues and expenditures.
Brown said they could
probably afford $10,000,
since the county is bracing for
rises in fuel, health insurance
and utilities costs, which he
expected to eliminate the
remainder of the surplus.
The commission unanimously
approved the change.


The Perry Police Department won first place in its
agency-size division for the DUI Challenge.

transportation department at
our next meeting (Aug. 2).
Until then, we just don't have
enough information to make a
decision," she added.
"We certainly will be looking
to make sure that we utilize
every seat on the bus."
When one audience member


suggested the system return
to a former schedule where
students were released from
school 10-15 minutes early
and then bussed to local after-
school care centers, Dyal shook
his head and reminded them,
"Those were the days when
we were $1.8 million in the
hole."
Later in the meeting he noted,
"If we have to choose between
instruction and transportation,
we'll be cutting transportation."
"We have to live within our
means," Carlton said.
"Instruction has to be our first
priority," Dyal said.
Parents in attendance
were encouraged to attend
the board's Aug. 2. meeting
for further discussion of the
issue.


Commission explains dilemma'


UNITED WAY
Continued from page 1
raised by the county's general
United Way campaign.
According to United Way of
the Big Bend, the commission's
$70,000 funding this fiscal year
was allocated in November
with the following local
agencies receiving money:
Taylor County Senior Citizens
Center, $22,000; Boys & Girls
Club, $22,000; Taylor County
Leadership Council (for the
local food bank), $10,000;
Taylor County Refuge House,
$12,000; Early Learning
Coalition of the Big Bend,
$2,000; and Taylor County
Special Olympics, $2,000.
In light of last week's
cuts, United Way Campaign
Associate Glenda Hamby spoke
with commissioners during
their special budget meeting
held Monday.
"When I'm speaking on
behalf of United Way, I'm
speaking on behalf of local
citizens," Hamby said. "They
come under the umbrella.
Ladies and gentleman, we could
have packed this whole room
tonight for you if that's what
you need to see."
She outlined the services
provided by each of the


organizations funded through the
commission's allocation. With
the downturn in the economy.
the demand for services is on the
rise, she explained.
Several commissioners
explained the "dilemma" they
were facing last week trying to
avoid the. furloughs while not
dipping into reserves or raising
taxes.
"Would you like for us
to lay off some people?"
Commissioner Pam Feagle
asked.
"I trust you are going through
the budget and that everybody
you have employed is in a
key position that is absolutely
essential," Hamby said.
"I'm just saying that wherever
you've got some coin," she
continued. "Quite frankly I
don't want these folks to be
without meals or safe shelter
because they've been abused."
"We don't either," Feagle
said. "We have just not been
able to find the money. We have
gone over it. We have cut and
we have cut."
"The only thing I knew to
do was to come and say, let me
plead the case," Hamby said.
"This is what you've charged
me to do, to come back and
report where it's been used."
"We don't want to raise taxes.


and we don't want to go into our
reserves," Feagle said.
Hamby asked what percentage
of reserves the county has, and
Finance Director Tammy Taylor
said it was about 10 percent.
According to the budget,
the county will have a reserve
for contingency fund of $1.2
million: reserve for cash
balance. $2 million; reserve
for capital improvements,
$800,000; reserve for economic
development. $375,000.
"Last year--I'll say it--we
made a mistake," Commissioner
Malcolm Page said. "We used
about S400.000 out of reserves
rather than make the hard cuts
we needed to make."
With the $458,000 drop in
property tax revenues this year,
the county began its budget
process this year with a more
than $800,000 general fund
deficit, he continued.
Feagle, at one point, proposed
cutting the Taylor County
Development Authority's
budget to make up some of
the difference, but did not find
support from the rest of the
board.
Follo\ ing the lengthy
discussion, the commission left
cuts to United Way in place and
approved its proposed millage
rates.

honored at Titusville ceremony


Taylor County native Ralph Poppell, center, cuts the ribbon to signify the opening
of a new airport administrative building named in his honor.


The Titusville-Cocoa Airport
Authority has started to move
into the Ralph Poppell Airport
Administration Building at the
Space Coast Regional Airport
in Titusville after a ribbon
cutting ceremony that was held
on June 16.
The $3.1 million,
9,000-square-foot building,
named in honor of Taylor
County native Poppell, went
up with U.S. Department
of Agriculture and Florida
Department of Transportation
funding.
"The Ralph Poppell
Administration Building is an
appropriate name because of
his hard work and dedication.


None of this would have been
possible without Rep. Poppell,"
said Michael Powell, the airport
authority's executive director.
Poppell, a Republican from
Vero Beach, was a proponent of
the space and aviation industries
when he served in the state
House from 2002 to 2010.
He represented District 29,
which stretches from Vero
Beach to Titusville.
The plantation-style building
replaces the authority's nearly
30-year-old headquarters.
Powell described the former
headquarters as "two
maintenance hangars bolted"
together.
"That didn't give the best


impression when we were
trying to attract new business,"
he said.
The naming of the building
was announced in July 2010 at
a joint meeting of the Chamber
of Commerce and the Airport
Authority before construction
began.
In addition to housing the
authority staff, the new building
provides office and meeting
room spaces for three or more
additional businesses.
Poppell was born and raised
in Perry. His parents were Pope
and Elsie Poppell, and he is one
of five children. He graduated
from Taylor County High
School in 1959.


The Ralph Poppell Airport Administrative Building is located in Titusville.

Are you smarter than a third grader?
Teachers from Taylor County Elementary School spoke to the Perry Kiwanis Club
on July 13, quizzing the Kiwanians with actual FCAT questions which third graders
face. The teachers also thanked club members for their "generous support
throughout the previous school year." Supplies were donated by the Kiwanis Club
for all third grade classes, and the teachers were not overlooked either. Kiwanians
sent flowers and cards of appreciation noting special holidays. Shown from left
are: Cheri LaValle, Meridith Upshaw, Sherri DuBose, Rene Heard and Katie Lincoln.
