FHP Trooper Lundy & K-9 Marko



Partners against crime


One of the newest "officers"
patrolling Taylor County
highways only speaks German
and has a knack for sniffing out
trouble.
K-9 Marko works alongside
partner and handler Brian Lundy
in covering eight counties in the
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP)
Troop H district, which includes


Taylor.
Their journey as a team began
in September 2010 when Lundy
was selected to be a K-9 handler
by former Col. John Czernis.
"I first met my new partner,
Marko, on Sept. 30 when
he arrived at the Tallahassee
Airport from Shallow Creek
Kennels in Sharpsville, Pa.


Trooper First Class Brian Lundy and K-9 Marko during
an aggression training session.


K-9 Marko looks to his handler, Brian Lundy, during
graduation ceremonies in which he was presented his
FHP canine badge. He only responds to commands
spoken in German. 1


Marko was only a year old when
we met and is originally from
Germany. He only understands
German commands and was in
the United States approximately
two weeks before he and I were
teamed up," Lundy said.
"Marko and I began rigorous
patrol school training after two
weeks of bonding. We finished
the training in mid-January
after having completed more
than 480 hours of instruction
from Master Trooper Mike
Van Leer, the Florida Highway
Patrol statewide K-9 instructor.
In patrol school Marko was
taught how to track a fleeing
subject, how to find articles
that are hidden or tossed
away by a fleeing subject (by
searching for human scent),
obedience and agility as well
as outside area searches for
barricaded subjects (searching
and alerting to the location of
the subject by barking), locating
barricaded subjects inside a
building (alerting to a subject's
location by barking) and finally
how to apprehend, bite and
hold a suspect," Lundy
recounted.
"Marko was conditioned to
be around gunfire and give no
reaction. He is certified by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement in obedience, area
searches, building searches
and criminal apprehension
(biting and holding a suspect).
He is certified by the National
Police Work Dog Association
(NPWDA) in tracking."
The next round of training
began April 1 at the Drug
Detection Academy in
Tallahassee.
"In this school, Marko was
taught to locate and source the
odor of five drugs--marijuana,
cocaine, methamphetamine,
heroin and MDMA(Ecstasy).
After identifying the odor
Marko was trained to scratch
at the source of the drug,
giving a final alert in vehicles,
luggage and buildings. In the
drug detection school Marko
conducted nearly 775 drug
searches and had more than 350
hours of instruction. On June 17,
Marko and I certified with the
International Forensic Research
Institute (IFRI). Marko certified
with the IFRI by successfully
searching and locating hidden
drugs in vehicles, luggage and
buildings."
The close partnership
between Lundy and Marko can
be seen by their day-to-day
routines.
"Marko comes home with
me every day and is a part
of the family. When I go to
work, Marko goes with me.
Marko and I are teamed up with
Trooper First Class John Baas,
Swho works with us daily. We
are assigned to the FHP Bureau
of Criminal Interdiction and
Intelligence and are supervised
by FHP Troop H," Lundy said.
Baas, Lundy and Marko
serve the counties of Franklin,

Commission agrees to join


Three Rivers library co-op


County commissioners
agreed Monday evening to
join the Three Rivers Library
System, a move county officials
are calling a "win-win" for the
Taylor County Public Library.
According to County
Administrator Jack Brown, the
Three Rivers Library Board
has approved the county's
application, and now it is up
to the three existing member
counties--Dixie, Gilchrist and
Lafayette--to approve Taylor's
entry.
"We don't anticipate any
issues," Brown said, adding that
he expects the process to be
completed by mid-September.
Under the interlocal


agreement approved Monday,
the county would be represented
on the library system board by
one county commissioner and
one other person.
Among the services provided
by the library system in the
agreement, the system will
review and select all materials;
prepare all orders for materials
to vendors and publishers;
develop and administer all state
and federal grants; and prepare
an annual budget for each
county commission.
One of the immediate benefits
of joining the system will be
the local library will not have
to hire a director with state
mandated credentials, which


include a masters' degree and at
least two years experience after
attaining the degree at a public
library, Brown said. Instead, the
library system has one director
to oversee all member libraries.
Brown said the requirements
have made it hard to find
applicants for the position,
which is required to receive
state library funds. In March,
the county received a one-year
waiver from the requirement.
The county received $82,000
in state funds in the current
fiscal year and is expecting
$70,000 next year.
According the Brown, he had

Tidewater Apartments, a
100-unit apartment complex,
is under new management
and ownership, and the new
owners said they will be making
several changes to the housing
development in the coming
years.
The new owners have been
managing apartment complexes
in South Carolina since 1990
and recently purchased three
properties in the panhandle of
Florida. Griffin Heights, LLC,
purchased Madison Heights
Apartments in Madison and
Tidewater Apartments in Perry.
Its principals, Jimmy Kerr
and Jamie Kerr, have a large
portfolio of more than 3,000
units and said they have a


respectable reputation with
United States Housing and
Urban Development Authority
(HUD), State Housing Finance
Agencies as well as all local city
and law enforcement agencies
where they do business.
City Manager Bob Brown
said he is enthusiastic about
the changes to the property
and willing to assist in
implementation of decent
affordable housing in the city of
Perry.
"There are residents who
have lived at Tidewater since it
opened. I know they have been
through a lot and will embrace
the changes being considered

$10.9 million bid


awarded for Aucilla

River bridge project


The Florida Department
of Transportation (DOT) has
selected Miami contractor
GLF Construction Corporation
to replace the U.S. 98 bridges
over the Aucilla River, a project
which is expected to start later
this year and take almost two
years to complete.
According to DOT Public
Information Officer Gina
Busscher, the agency made
the selection Thursday. GLF
was the lowest bidder of eight
contractors which bid on the
project in June. The bids ranged
from $10.9 million to $19.5
million.
"They should begin work later
this year," Busscher said. "We
have to exchange paperwork
and then they will begin to
mobilize their equipment and
crews, find their vendors for
materials and start to set up their
local construction field office.
"They have 650 contract
days--excluding weather
days and holidays--in which
to complete the project," she
added.
GLF is an international
engineering and construction
company, specializing in the
areas of heavy civil, marine
works, major bridge structures,
general contracting, design-
build and historical renovation.
They have offices in Miami, Ft.
Meade and Dallas, Texas, as
well as overseas in Colombia,
Trinidad and Rome.
"Some of their projects
include the Hallandale
Beach Boulevard Bridge in
Hallandale, the Seabreeze
Bridge in Daytona Beach and
the Venetian Causeway Bridge
in Venice," Busscher said.
Taylor County
Commissioners unanimously


agreed in January to grant a
temporary easement to FDOT
for Aucilla Landing Road
allowing them to relocate and
raise the roadway's entrance
at U.S. 98 to accommodate the
new, higher bridge.
The existing bridge, along
with the overflow bridge, will
be replaced by a single, 1,365-
foot long bridge, which will be
built up to 12-feet higher than
the current one.
The new bridge will still be
two-laned but will have '0-foot
wide emergency lanes and solid
concrete barrier walls.
It will replace the old bridges
that were built in 1952 and are
considered structurally and

69-year-old dies


while scalloping

A 69-year-old Myakka City (Fla.) man died while scalloping off
the coast from Steinhatchee Thursday afternoon, July 27.
Funeral services for Jasper Marvin Taylor will be held Saturday,
Aug. 6, at the Myakka Family Worship Center.
Taylor and a group of friends launched two boats from Dallus
Creek and were scalloping about two miles off the coast in eight to
10 feet of water when the tragedy occurred.
"They had only been out about an hour and a half when his
friends saw him floating in the water. They immediately brought
him aboard the boat and brought him to the boat landing at Gulf
Breeze Condos in Steinhatchee. He was taken to Doctors' Memorial
Hospital, where he was pronounced dead," Taylor County Sheriff's
Office Capt. Ron Rice said.
Autopsy results indicated no signs of foul play and the sheriff's
office is still investigating, he said.
Deputies were notified of the call around 2:36 p.m. Taylor, who
was retired, was using scuba gear during the scalloping trip.
Griffith Cline Funeral & Cremation Services in Bradenton is in
charge of arrangements.

Editorial


A-2 Taco Times August 3, 2011


Resident praises county,


city, school governments


Dear Editor:
After reading the Letter to
the Editor in the Taco Times
last week written by Mr.
George Stamos, I felt I must
take exception to Mr. Stamos'
complaints about the services
he receives and the general
problems he experiences in
Keaton Beach--an area in which
he chooses to live.
Mr. Stamos' insinuation that
our elected officials are not
doing enough to remedy his
unhappy situation puts me in
mind of a man who chose to
live in a house near an existing
airport, then complained about
the noise the planes made.
My husband and I moved
to Perry from a small town
just outside of Gainesville one
year ago. Prior to leaving, the
mayor of this small town was
charged with embezzlement,
another city official was jailed
on drug charges, remaining city
councilmen and certain county
officials argued much like the


existing gang in Washington,
making it impossible for
anything constructive to get
accomplished, and the county
commissioners washed their
hands of the whole sorry lot.
As a result of this example
of poor governing, businesses
closed and left, there was
no funding for police or fire
protection, causing crime to
elevate, and no new businesses/
corporations could be enticed
to move into the area leaving
unemployment at an all time
high. Hopelessness even
pervaded the local schools
resulting in their decline.
In comparison, after one
year of living, working and
worshiping in Perry, my
husband and I are still amazed
at everything this town has to
offer its citizens and the effort
made by our elected officials
and fellow townspeople to make
Perry a wonderful place to live.
I have yet to encounter the first
city or county employee who


hasn't gone out of their way to
accommodate our every need
and make us feel welcome in
our new home.
Perry schools have earned a
grade A rating, our police, fire
and sheriff departments are
top notch and it appears from
what I have read in the local
newspaper that the necessary
work is being done by our city
and county officials, and the
Chamber of Commerce, to
bring new businesses, thus jobs,
to our area.
I read in the July 22 Perry
News-Herald that Taylor
County/Perry has now become
a very rare phenomenon in
America--Mr. Jack Brown and
county commissioners have
balanced our budget.
All of these successes are
occurring during the worst
economic down-turn since the
Great Depression. I say God
bless them, and thank them, for
a job well done.

Letters to the Editor


Obama is 'purposefully overwhelming

U.S. economy to destroy capitalism'


Dear Editor:
If Barrack Hussien Obama is
re-elected in 2012, the U.S. is
finished.
Obama is no fool, he is not
incompetent, and in contrast,
he is brilliant. He knows
exactly what he's doing. He
is purposely overwhelming
the U.S. economy to create
systemic failure, economic
crisis and social chaos--thereby
destroying capitalism and our
country from within.
The. people elected.. :t6
congress in the midterm election
are now falling to Obama's
propaganda campaign with
compromise on the debt. The
proposal from the team of six is
providing a balance to increased
spending but doing nothing for
real debt reduction. Cut, cap
and balance is draconian but
the condition that our nation is
in calls for draconian measures.
Pain now or more pain later
are our only choices. If we stay
where we are in respect to debt,
increased inflation will kill the
country. I don't know about
you but my dollar is not worth
what it was prior to the Obama
administration. I hate to say it
but Obama's plan is working.
Forty-one percent of the
registered voters elected
Republican and Tea Party
conservatives in the midterm
election. Where were the rest
of the registered voters in the
midterm if they back the present
administration? The state
run media is now presenting
poll after poll that presents a
completely different picture. We
41% must revisit the standards
established in the last election if
not the democratic republic we
love is finished.
Obama claims to be a
Christian, do not be fooled he


Taco


is a devout Muslim. His books,
written while in college, say
that he would have to side with
the Muslims yet the American
people act surprised at his
actions. He told us what he
would do and he is doing it. I
am not surprised except for his
single case of honesty.

business, anti- American. As

plan of Cloward and Piven,
two professors at Columbia
University. They outlined a
plan to socialize America by
overwhelming the system with
government spending and
entitlement demands. Add up the
clues below. Taken individually
they're alarming. Taken as a
whole, it is a brilliant game
plan to turn the United States
into a socialist/Marxist state
with a permanent majority that
desperately needs government
for survival and can be counted
on to always vote for bigger
government. Why not? They
have no responsibility to pay
for it. You can count on a large
percentage of votes for larger
government in the next election.
The remaining 59 percent of
registered voters who didn't
vote in the last election are our
only hope.
The health care bill had very
little to do with health care.
It had everything to do with
unionizing millions of hospital
and health care workers, as
well as adding 15,000 to 20,000
new IRS agents (who will join
government employee unions).
Obama doesn't care that giving
free health care to 30 million
Americans will add trillions to
the national debt, that is part of

his grand scheme. What he does
care about is that it cements the
dependence of those 30 million
voters to Democrats and big'
government. Who but a socialist
revolutionary would pass a
reckless spending bill in the
middle of a depression? I urge
you to listen to the president and
not allow him to take the nation
down this path.
Like health care legislation
having nothing to do with health
care, cap and trade has nothing
"to giooai waiix .
It has everything to do with
redistribution of income,
government control of the
economy and a criminal payoff
to Obama's biggest contributors.
Those powerful and wealthy
unions and contributors (like,
GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC&
and CNBC) can then be counted
on to support everything Obama
wants.
They will kick-back hundreds
of millions of dollars in
contributions to Obama and the
Democratic Party to keep them
in power. The bonus is that all
the new taxes on Americans
with bigger cars, bigger homes
and businesses help Obama
"spread the wealth around."
What happens to the ones who
use their larger vehicles in
small business or agriculture?
If you. like your way of life,
take note here. Our president
wants to force us to ride public
transportation, live in cities and
vote for larger government.
Make Puerto Rico a state.
Why? Who's asking for a 51st
state?
Who's .asking for millions
of new welfare recipients and
government entitlement addicts
in the middle of a depression? I
think I can safely say certainly
not the American taxpayer.
However, this has been Barack
Hussien Obama's plan all along.
His goal is to add two
new Democrat senators, five
Democrat congressman and a
million loyal Democratic voters
who are dependent on big
government.
Legalize 12 million illegal
Mexican immigrants. Just
giving these 12 million potential
new citizens free health care
alone could overwhelm the
system and bankrupt America.
But it adds 12 million reliable
new Democrat voters who can
be counted on to support big
government. Add another few
trillion dollars in welfare, aid
to dependent children, food
stamps, free medical, education,
tax credits for the poor, and
eventually Social Security.
People who are forced to live
on these programs are not to
blame; the government is.
I don't know about you but I
am for a guest worker program.
We need to know who the non-
citizens are and where they are

Midweek Muddle



A Window to Our Past



By SUSAN H. LINCOLN


Whenever we land in our Alabama
hometown at the same time, my Cousin
Claire and I invariably ride by our
Grandmother's old Victorian home
which sits high on a corner lot.
We pull along the side street which
runs parallel with the parlor and dining
room, and pause however briefly. One
of us always says, "I wish somebody
had gotten that stained glass window."
It's a deep regret that we share.
The window--which is a design in deep
purples, blues and greens-- whispers
sweet nothings to us about growing up
under its watchful
eye, playing hide-
and-seek until dark
while our family
visited on the porch
as the banana
bush enveloped us
with its pleasant
aroma.
Our parents have
heard our lament
about the window
but they have their
own regrets. They wish they had all the
fireplace mantels or the\ claw-footed
bathtub, but it's difficult to store all
these items for 20 years while the
grandchildren, who want them now,
grow up.
The greatest news is that the family
that bought Grandmother's home has
breathed new life into it, raising eight
children without a black sheep in sight.
The mother smocked dresses and the
father coached Little League. He held
down two jobs to afford the house
while his wife, a home economics major,
made their own bread and refurbished
every room.
On Sunday, they fill up an entire
pew at the First Baptist Church, and
everybody is dressed as if it were Easter.
If you must sell, these are the people
to whom you wish to sell.
The last time I returned, I rode solo
by the home and pulled along the side
street for a pensive moment with the
stained glass.
Later that night, I dreamed about it.
I dreamed that my cousin and I
darkened our faces with the Halloween
paint our children once used, and
lowered ourselves by ropes through
the trees which we climbed as children.
Even though it was a clandestine
adventure, it was great fun.
In the dream, we were still pretty
good at climbing and rappelling. When


in position, we used a few confiscated
tools to remove the boards which
framed the stained glass and we
hovered there--suspended in time and
space--admiring its beauty.
Finally, Claire said, "Come on!"
impatiently, as she's done most of my
life.
In my dream, the stained glass
window came out easily, as if it was
meant to be. We floated in space, like
raiders of the lost ark, stunned that we
were holding such a holy piece. She
held one side and I held the other as we
lowered ourselves
to the ground. We
ran awkwardly
toward our waiting
car where we had
stored blankets to
protect the window.
When we were
safely inside the
car, I looked back
and was suddenly
horrified by what
we'd done. It was
as if we had stolen that house's soul.
"What are you waiting for?" she asked.
"Look at what we've done," I said and
she glanced back too.
We who loved the window most
realized that we had done a terrible
injustice to the house that had
embraced us through our growing up
years.
It looked blank and bare.
The dream ended with my cousin
and I sorrowfully explaining our folly
to the wonderful family who bought
Grandmother's home. It was not the
first time we had sorrowfully explained
an errant action but it was the first time
we had received such a gracious pardon
from the injured party.
In return, we paid nearly $1000
to have the window cleaned and re-
installed in the old house.
"It was the right thing to," I
maintained.
"It would have cost us less to have a
replica made," Claire said, and she was
right.
But it was a good lesson that you
can't possess everything you admire in
this world. Sometimes, you just have
to stand back and give thanks for the
beauty.
We're finally at peace, that window
and I.
It only took 56 years and a midsummer
night's dream.

at the property," Brown said
while meeting with AMCS
Development Manager Jennie
Wilkinson. (AMCS is the
development group for Griffin
Heights.)
"The owners plan to apply
for tax credits through the
Florida Housing Finance
Corporation in an effort to
put a considerable amount
of money into bringing the
property to energy efficient
and low maintenance
conditions for easy living. If
awarded, the owners' plans
include replacing roofs,
windows, appliances, fixtures
and installing HVAC units


to name a few. The property
has been in distress for many
years. The Kerrs are eager to
make the necessary changes
for the residents of Perry,"
Wilkinson said.
The apartment complex
was sold in June.
"We have already raised
occupancy in just three
weeks," Wilkinson noted.
Screening criteria for
renters includes background
checks, criminal records
checks and employment
verification.
"To qualify for residency,
an individual must have some
form of income," she said.
"There are no changes for
the residents who were already
living at the complex."

in our country. After a number
of years of paying their way
and being productive we
should provide a proper path
to citizenship. The ones that
are here illegally now should
be given a chance to enroll if
they do not have a criminal
record. Those that do not meet
the standards to enroll should
be deported. If we truly want
homeland security this is the
way. Amnesty is not a proper
way because it plays into the
president's plan and adds an
additional draw on the nation.
The problem here is too many
of our elected officials in both
parties are not willing to make
the hard choices. If they are
not we should remove them the
American way by voting them
out of office.
Think back to comments
made by Ross Perot on
Native Americans. A wholly
independent race was decimated
by the U.S. Government. That
social experiment was a disaster
and nobody benefited from it.
The only thing that came from
it was a fiercely independent
people who became dependent
on the government. It took
years for the people to recover
but now Native Americans
are recovering by beating us
with our own greed through
gambling. Will you and I or
our children and grandchildren
fall prey to the help of the
government as did the Native
Americans? The difference is
there may be nothing left to take
back in recovery.
Where did all that money
go--stimulus and bailouts? It
went to Democrat contributors,
organizations (Acorn and
Planned Parenthood) and
unions--including billions of
dollars to save or create jobs
for government employees
across the country. It went to
save GM and Chrysler so that
their employees could keep
paying union dues. It went to
AIG so that Goldman Sachs
could be bailed out (after giving
Obama almost $1 million in
contributions). A staggering
$125 billion went to teachers
(thereby protecting their union
dues). Most all of those public
employees will vote loyally
Democrat to protect their
bloated salaries and pensions
that are bankrupting America.
I work for the federal
government and the system
is broken. I hate to say it
but the government destroys
everything it touches. There
is an enormous amount of
waste in my organization. A
civilian organization operated
like our government would
fail immediately. However, the
government just raise taxes or
borrows more; eventually this
will end. People who will work
are held back because of the
union's protection of worthless


employees. People in the
unions are held back because
of their leaders' desire to
receive dues. Most of the union
leaders are paid more than our
government leaders. Why can't
the people see this failure? This
is a communist approach to
productivity. When people who
work take care of those who
don't work, the system will fail
as did the old Soviet Union.
If the country goes broke,
future generations face a
bleak future, but Obama, the
Democrat Party, government
and the unions grow more
powerful. This trend must stop,
if not reversed the country is
toast.
The end always justifies
the means for Barack Hussien
Obama. Raise taxes on small
business owners, high-income
earners and job creators. Put
the entire burden on only the
top 20 percent of taxpayers,
redistribute the income, punish
success and reward those who
did nothing to deserve it (except
vote for Obama). By the way
this view is shared with secular
progressives, communists,
Marxists and socialists.
Most people who voted for
Obama would deny they fall
in one of these aforementioned
categories. The truth is they
don't know enough about
history to identify them. That
is another plan to socialize the
USA through dumbing down
history for our children.
Reagan wanted to
dramatically cut taxes in order
to starve the government.
Barack Obama wants to
dramatically raise taxes to
starve his political opposition.
With -the acts outlined above,
Barack Hussien Obama and his
regime have created a vast and
rapidly expanding constituency
of voters dependent on big
government; a vast privileged
class of public employees
who work for big government;
and a government dedicated
to destroying capitalism and
installing themselves as socialist
rulers by overwhelming the
system.
Add it up and you've got
the perfect Marxist scheme--
all devised by Barack Hussien
Obama, using the Cloward and
Piven Plan. This is what Robert
McNamara feared in the 1960s.
If we allow this to happen the
country is finished. How can we
live with that when our children
are the ones that will suffer the
most?
I truly hope for the sake of
the nation we do not re-elect
Obama. Please take the time to
verify the claims made here. I
assure you they all are true. A
blind man can smell a rat and
we have elected the rat master
to our nation's highest office.
We need to do some house
cleaning beginning with the
White House.
Had enough,
Earnest Eakins

By U.S. Department of Agriculture


Taylor among 50 counties declared


disaster area due to drought losses


The U.S. Department of
Agriculture has designated
27 Florida counties and 23
contiguous counties including
Taylor County, as primary
natural disaster areas due to
losses caused by drought and
excessive heat that began Jan. 1
and continue.
"Florida producers can count
on USDA to provide emergency
assistance during these difficult
times," said Agriculture
Secretary Tom Vilsack.
"President Obama and I
are committed to reducing
the impact of this disaster for
Florida producers and we will
commit all available resources
to help in recovery," Vilsack
added.
Those designated counties
include Bay, Holmes, Orange,
Brevard, Jackson, Osceola,
Calhoun, Jefferson, Palm
Beach, Charlotte, Lake, Polk,
Escambia, Lee, Santa Rosa,


Gadsden, Leon, Suwannee,
Gulf, Liberty, Wakulla,
Hamilton, Madison, Walton,
Hillsborough, Okaloosa and
Washington.
Farmers and ranchers in


the following counties in
Florida also qualify for natural
disaster assistance because
their counties are contiguous:
Broward, Hendry, Pasco,
Collier, Highlands, Pinellas,


Columbia, Indian River,
Sarasota, De Soto, Lafayette,
Seminole, Franklin, Manatee,
Sumter, Gilchrist, Marion,
Taylor, Glades, Martin, Volusia,
Hardee and Okeechobee.


Traffic will shift to temporary


bridge during construction

functionally obsolete,"
Busscher said.
"The existing bridge is safe
to drive over now but needs
continual maintenance to keep
it that way."
A temporary bridge will be
built on the south side of the
existing bridge and traffic will


be switched to it while the
old bridge is torn down and
replaced, she added.
In addition to the Aucilla
River bridge, the FDOT five-
year work plan includes two
other bridge replacements in
Taylor County.
Construction is set to begin
on replacing Fenholloway
Bridge on U.S. 27 in fiscal year
2014 at a projected cost of $6.9


million.
Then, in fiscal year 2015,
work is scheduled to begin on
replacing the Econfina River
Bridge on U.S. 221 at a cost of
$8.4 million.

been led to believe in the past
that the county would lose local
autonomy and its state funding
should they join a cooperative
library system, but has since
discovered that was not the
case.
Instead,thecountywillbe able
to maintain its level of funding
--barring cuts by the Florida
Legislature--and the system
will receive additional funds

Brown said, resulting in a
"win-win."
"We believe that Three

aligns with the goals and
objectives of the Taylor County
Public Library," Brown said.

flcfe9fT Down in the Dumps?

By SARAH HALL
D.I.D. Days (Down In The Dumps Days) are the days, my
friend, you think will never end. Everything that can go wrong,
will, and everything else that can happen, does. You feel like
you're on a runaway train and can't get off. You worry about
everything and can't seem to come to grips with anything. I have
them quite often now. I tell myself it goes along with aging and a
change of energy...change of interest and all those kinds of things. -
You begin to feel like you're not yourself anymore. Seems like
you don't have control of you and what you want out of life.
Sounds familiar? Well, I thought so. Yes, there are millions of us
out there somewhere. You may not call them what I call them, but
everybody has those D.I.D. Days. Here are some remedies:
1. Pray. Ask God to help you make changes in your life. Help
you to do things different in your life. To explore, discover, renew.
2. Connect with people who share the same interests or hobbies
that you enjoy. Stay away, far away, from negative people and
people who complain and are disgruntled about everything and
everybody...people that always say, "I've been there and done
that." They are living in the past and let them enjoy it. If you want
to enjoy the present, spend time with people who do.
3. Discover the world. It's a beautiful and interesting place.,
Every opportunity you get, visit the library, parks, museums, travel -
near and far. Meet new people. Try it; you just might like it.,
Smile--and make someone happy today...you!

As defensive coordinator


Johnson joins TCHS football coaching staff


Taylor County High Head
Football Coach Steve Price
has retained the services of
Beau Johnson to serve as his
defensive coordinator for the
upcoming season.
"Beau is no stranger to our
kids, having conducted several
weight training events here,"
Price said.
Johnson is also no stranger
to Price as the two have been
competing as coaches on the
field for more than a decade.
"I have coached against Steve
in Georgia starting in 1998.


We were in the same region
for several years and had some
really good battles. He is a class
act and a wonderful coach,"
Johnson said.
Johnson grew up in Newton,
Ga., and played high school
football at Westwood School
in Camilla, Ga. He attended
college at Valdosta State
University where he earned a
history degree.
He comes to Taylor County
after a two-year assistant
coaching stint at Southwest
Georgia Academy in Damascus,


Ga., where the teams went 19-5
over two seasons including two
straight trips to the state semi-
finals.
Prior to that he served as head
coach at Piedmont Academy in
Monticello, Ga., for two seasons
with a 13-9-2 record and two
state playoff appearances.
From 2004 to 2007 he was
head coach at Edmund Burke
Academy in Waynesboro, Ga.,
where his 2006 squad went
8-3-1 and went to the state
semis.
Also during his coaching


career Johnson coached at
private schools in Pinehurst,
Ga., Albany, Ga., Louisville,
Ga., and Warrenton, Ga.
Johnson is certified as a
weight-training instructor and
is a clinician and sales rep for
the Bigger, Faster, Stronger
program.
In addition to his work on the
football field and in the weight
room, Johnson has also coached
track, producing several state
champions, and has taught such
subjects as history and social

Now is the time to think about hunter safety


ByTOBYYOUNG
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
With the dog days of summer
upon us, it's hard to think about
hunting. But if you're between
the ages of 16 and 36, and
haven't yet taken the state's
hunter safety class--now's just
the time to be thinking about it.
Many of these classes,
offered statewide, fill up
fast during hunting season
while people scramble to get
certified. Summer months offer
smaller class sizes and a better
opportunity for students to
attend, because they often have
more free time then.
People 16 years old or older
and born after May 31, 1975,
must complete the FWC's
hunter safety requirement
before they can buy a Florida
hunting license.

Perry, FL 32348


There is an exception though.
A law passed a few years
ago that allows individuals
to hunt under the supervision
of a licensed hunter, 21 years
old or older, without having
to complete the state's hunter
safety certification.
It's called the Hunter Safety
Deferral License, and it allows
those people who purchase
one to hunt on a one-year trial


basis. It's designed to encourage
experienced hunters to teach
novice hunters about our sport
and is a great incentive for
getting more people to give
hunting a try.
Individuals taking advantage
of this would have to pass a
hunter safety class to be eligible
to buy a license and hunt the
following year.
If you're a youngster and


already hunt, I suggest you go
ahead and take d hiiunter safety
class before you turn 16. Of
course, until then, you may hunt
under adult supervision.
You can register for a
hunter safety class by going
to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety
or by contacting your nearest
FWC regional office. Also,
there are two versions for your
convenience.

McCall wins in Americas




Cup of Floral Design 2011


B-i Taco Times August 3,2011


Jacob McCall won first
place in the Americas Cup
of Floral Design 2011 during
competitions held July 9-12 in
Brazil.
The 2001 Taylor County High
School graduate, who is the
grandson of Deek McCall Tyler
of Perry, was one of nine artists
to compete for the title.
"I was honored to represent
the United States in the
Americas Cup that took place
this July in Holambra. The
Brazilian people were very
warm and embraced me with
enthusiasm, eager to learn the
current American trends I use in
my designs," McCall said.
"After an 11-hour flight from
Miami, I landed in Sau Paulo,
Brazil. Sau Paulo is the largest
city in the region. We then had
to drive two hours out of the
city to Holambra where the


competition was held. Holambra
is a Dutch settlement in Brazil
complete with windmills and
tulip fields--just like Holland. I
was the only contestant without
a team of helpers, and as you can
see I managed to do pretty well.
The competition was extremely
hard, since I didn't know the
local language or vendors. I
felt pretty nervous on day one.
However after befriending
some of the locals and finding a
translator, I was able to whip my
designs into shape.
"I was amazed at people
coming to me asking for my
autograph and to take photos
with me. I was even interviewed
by a national Brazilian news
crew.
"This was a major highlight
in my career and I feel blessed
to have been asked to represent
the United States," McCall said.


Jacob McCall is ,shown
with his corsage design
entry.
For two days, the nine artists
competed in five different
events, with themes and times
already set.
At first, there were two tasks:
the first was a floral sculpture
with the theme "The Amazon


Rain Forest," with 90 minutes
for production.
The second was a "surprise
item" box, in which the theme
was revealed at the delivery time
and designers had 45 minutes to
complete the task.
On the second day of
the competition, the artists
performed three tasks: the
first was a "table for two"
with the theme "Oceans of the
Americas." The second was a
"bridal bouquet" and the third
and final task was a "corsage."
On the third day, the top
five scorers advanced to the
final round of competition.
The evaluation criteria
included composition, idea and
originality, harmony of colors,
technique and mechanics.

Fire-Rescue and the City Fire
Department will stand outside
Walmart on Sep. 1-3 to fill their

McCall wins 'Iron Designer'

for second year in a row


MCCALL
Continued from page 1
the Americas Cup this year
were all highly skilled floral
designers, each one of them
in their own unique way.
They think, design, create and
execute everything differently.
This makes it very interesting
to follow the Americas Cup, not
just to see what they are able to
create but also to see how they
approach the projects. There
is, however, one similarity
amongst the nine: they all feel
very honored and can't hide
their enthusiasm at being part


of the Americas Cup. This is
why they feel so passionate and
ready to share their creations
with the world," competition
organizers said.
In addition to the Americas
Cup, McCall also won the
"Iron Designer of America"
title for the second year in a
row and was inducted into the
prestigious American Institute
of Floral Designers.
Accredited membership in
AIFD is extremely selective
and can be obtained only after
a candidate has demonstrated
advanced professional ability in
his or her floral artistry.
