Arrests lead


to recovery of


stolen property


Two men from Perry were
caught attempting to steal a
$60,000 John Deere skid steer
in Mayo Tuesday, Aug. 2, and
both face charges of grand theft
and conspiracy to deal in stolen
property.
The suspects, Garrett Ashton,
Arrowood, 22, and a 16-year-
old juvenile, have also been
linked to a rash of thefts here,
Taylor County Sheriff's Office
(TCSO) Capt. Ron Rice said.
"We are actively working the
investigation as hard as we can
to recover a number of stolen
items. We will be filing charges
on these two and at least two
more suspects," he said.
To date, the department has
recovered two four-wheelers
and "are in the process of
getting other things. We are
contacting the victims ourselves
and returning the property as we
get it.


"From what we know, these
were thefts of opportunity.
The suspects were apparently
driving up and down the roads
'shopping.' They would see
things they wanted to steal, and
then would go back and take
it. I would encourage residents
to take their valuables (ATVs,
lawn mowers, motorcycles,
etc.) and get them out of sight
from the highways and roads.
Keep these things secured out
of sight," Rice said.
The Lafayette arrest was
triggered by information
received by investigators last
Tuesday that led them to believe
that a possible theft might
occur at Keen Forrest
Management.
"The sheriff's office
contacted Clinton Keen, owner
of Keen Forrest Management,
,,"* Please see page 2


$350,000 secured


for home rehabs,


down payments


Next week Taylor County will
begin accepting applications
for State Housing Initiatives
Partnership (SHIP) down-
payment assistance as well as
rehabilitation projects.
Although local officials
were first told they would not
receive any SHIP funding once
again this year, Taylor County
was one of a number of rural
counties in Florida to ultimately
receive $350,000, according
to Grants Coordinator Melody
Cox.
Applications for homeowners


will be available beginning
Tuesday, Aug. 16, at the Taylor
County Extension Office
located in Forest Capital Hall,
203 Forest Park Dr.
Earlier this year, the county
completed the last project on
its waiting list, Cox said. This
will be the first time the county
has taken applications for SHIP
rehab projects in years.
Unlike previous years,
however, SHIP will not fund
demolition and new construction

Reef project focuses on fisheries

conservation and public fishing


By FRED VOSE and
BILL LINDBERG
Special to the TacoTimes
In late July, a new round
of artificial reef construction
off the Taylor County coast
was approved for funding by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC).
Many volunteers from the
Taylor County Reef Committee
and the Taylor County Reef
Research Team participated
in planning and preparing a
proposal to FWC which was
submitted in March with help
from Grants Coordinator
Melody Cox.
Another grant application
was submitted independently
by the artificial reef permit
holder, the University of
Florida, to finish construction
of fisheries conservation
reefs within the Steinhatchee
Fisheries Management Area
(SFMA). FWC agreed to fund
both projects as a coordinated


reef-building effort under one
contract to Taylor County.
Approximately 90 reefs
will be built for a total cost of
$172,000. Of those, 48 will be
built for fisheries conservation,
while the remainder will be
built for public fishing. This
will more than double the
tonnage currently in the SFMA
fishing reef zone, where four
reef sites designed for fishing
were constructed in 2007.
Surveys there by Keith Mille
and Bill Horn (FWC scientists)
in June recorded at least a
dozen species of fish including
cubbyu, tomtate, white grunt,
sheepshead, black sea bass,
hogfish and a few gag grouper.
A more recent July report from
a bottom angler reported good
catches of white grunt, black
sea bass and flounder from
the public reefs. The new reef
construction will add material
at several of these sites and

2011 fund-raising campaign


Knowles, Parker take the lead for United Way


After leading a record-setting
campaign, Taylor County
United Way Chair Paul Dyal
officially passed the gavel to his
successors, Pam Rigoni-Parker
and Charlton Knowles.
Schools Superintendent Dyal
was on hand Tuesday morning
to present Parker and Knowles
with their United Way t-shirts
at Buckeye Community Federal
Credit Union, where both are
employed.
Last year the campaign raised
$267,000 from local donations,
capping a year when increased
giving was met with increased
needs.
"I enjoyed my tenure as
chairperson and it's always
good when you can pass the
gavel to two people you know
will do even better," Dyal said.
"I just want to say thank you
to all of the team members who
worked on the campaign."
"We look forward to joining
with the successful program
that United Way is and being a
part of the great work it does,"
Knowles said.
"It's obviously a challenging
time but that just means we
have to step up to the plate
and challenge others to do the
same."
"It's not only a challenging
time in a giving sense, it's also
in a needs sense," Rigoni-Parker
said.
"Having served on the board
for five years, I'm looking
forward to serving as co-chair."
Asking the community to
support this year's campaign,
the pair emphasized the fact that
all funds raised in Taylor County
are spent in Taylor County.


In related news, Taylor
County volunteers recently
completed the United Way of
the Big Bend (UWBB) Taylor
community-investment process,
and the $267,000 will soon be
distributed to 20 human-service
agencies that provide services in


services for local people in need
throughout the year," United
Way Campaign Associate
Glenda Hamby said.
"The allocation process is
a very gratifying experience,
and by learning the needs
in the community, we are

County helps me understand
we're really making a difference
here. This is why our annual
campaign is so important.
We see our gifts at work in
our community during this
investment process."

Barton, engineer at Buckeye
Florida; Alyce Watkins, retired
elementary teacher from Perry


Primary School; Debbie Bassett,
Taylor County president of
Capital City Bank; and Sara
Grambling, patient accounting
director for Doctors' Memorial
Hospital.
"The team's agency review
process includes several
components that take time to
complete properly," Hamby
said. "Taylor agencies as well
as new applicants submit an
application to remain or become
a UWBB agency for the county.
This application is comprised of
a description of their programs
offered to clients, numbers of
clients served in that county,
how the lives of their local
clients change for the better
because of their programs,
budget information on the
agency, and a list of their board
of directors.
"The team also studies their
budgets and hears testimonials
from clients and/or agency
volunteers. Upon completion,
they determine which agencies
and how much will be funded
for that particular year."
The Taylor County agencies
supported by the United Way,
their telephone numbers and the
types of services they offer are
as follows:
2-1-1 Big Bend, (211), 24-
hour crisis, suicide and HIV/

START

New team provides

services for victims

of sexual assault


Taylor County has a new
Sexual Trauma & Assault
Response Team (START)
which consists of a number of
professionals working together
to provide services to victims
of sexual assault and bring
perpetrators of sexual assault to
justice.
Funded by a federal grant,
START members include
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
(DMH), Refuge House, the state
attorney's office, Taylor County
Sheriff's Office, Taylor County
Health Department, Guardian
ad Litem and the Perry Police
Department.
"This is a new service for
Taylor County and is the
first START group in a rural
county. START members are
receiving training on sexual
assault response and evidence


collection. The training,
coupled with a collaborative
team, will tremendously
improve the sexual assault
response in Taylor County,"
START Chair Elise Blair
said.
Anyone who is interested
in joining the group should
contact Refuge House at 584-
8808.
"The National Institute
of Justice recognizes the
effectiveness of such programs.
Statistics indicate that these
teams can enhance the quality of
care for women who have been
sexually assaulted, improve the
quality of forensic evidence,
increase law enforcement's
ability to collect information,
file charges and refer to
prosecution, and increase
prosecution rates."


START aims to enhance the quality of care for women
who have been sexually assaulted.


Suspects targeted


$60,000 machine


STOLEN PROPERTY
Continued from page 1
and informed him of what we
believed. With his permission,
the Lafayette County Sheriff's
Office staked out the shop
where it was believed the theft
might occur," Rice said.
"At approximately 11 p.m., a
vehicle matching the description
that we had been given-a blue
Jeep Cherokee-pulled into the
driveway of Keen's shop and
backed up to the trailer that a
machine (a John Deere skid
steer) was loaded on. While
trying to hook up the trailer,
the subjects noticed vehicles
coming down C.R. 53, so they
pulled up from the trailer so
as to not look suspicious. At
this time, the sheriff's office
conducted a felony take down
on the vehicle and arrested the
two occupants," Rice related.
The John Deere tractor


was valued at approximately
$60,000 and the trailer it
was located on was valued at
approximately $5,200.
"It was learned in post arrest
interviews that the subjects
already had a buyer for the
machine and that they were
going to deliver it to the buyer in
Madison that same night. After
the arrest, investigators from
the TCSO and Madison County
Sheriff's Office sat in on the
interviews with the two subjects.
The information obtained in
these interviews helped to solve
multiple burglaries and thefts in
these two counties," Rice said.
Arrowood was charged with
grand theft and conspiracy to
deal in stolen property. He is
being held in the Lafayette
County Jail on a $20,000
bond.
The second suspect was
booked on the same charges and
released to his mother.

By DELORES WALKER
This story is for all you
animal lovers. Come along
with me as I introduce you to
Lilah Jane, the Wonder Cat. I
pretend to be her proud owner
but in reality, she owns me.
The Walker household has a
long history as cat owners.
Some of them has been a joy,
some have left a more
unpleasant memory, but none
has measured up to Lilah Jane.
She arrived at our house some
three years ago when
granddaughter Megan rescued
her from the Walmart parking
lot. She was a scrawny, grey
striped bit of fur that had a
meow that sounded like a
freight train. The longest part
of her body was her swishing
tail that curled like a new-born
pig's tail. There was absolutely
nothing appealing about her. I
took one look at her and said,
"she looks like a garbage-can
cat." Megan, always the
champion of all homeless
creatures, cuddled her close
and remarked, "she's sweet
Gma and she needs us."
Megan had perfected the
method of convincing me since
she had worked this plan from

Lilah Jane,

the time she was a toddler. I
knew it was a losing battle to
protest, so I put on my long-
suffering face and said okay,
"she can stay."
The first night was a
nightmare as we tried to sleep
to the tune of hisses and growls
between the new arrival and
our other cat Lalah Daisy.
Daisy was determined to show
the new kid her place of
importance in the household


and from the sound of her
disapproval the place she rated
was; somewhere else!!
It took a few days, but
eventually Lilah learned the
routine. And wonder of
wonders, she became a model
child. She caught on to the litter
box idea and the feeding bowl
was her favorite place. Her
skinny body began to fill out

'There is a human' inside this cat...


WONDER CAT
Continued from page 4
and her dull gray fur took on a
shine.
Right about here is when she


began her campaign to claim
me as her own. She did it
without begging or pushing
herself on me.
Looking back now I
remember it started with her
eye contact. I would be busy
with everyday stuff and I would
feel her stare boring into my
back. I began to notice an
interesting thing about her
beautiful green eyes; there was
an unusual intelligence in her
gaze that appeared to be more


than the look of, "a garbage-can
cat." She took on the role of my
shadow. Never pushy, just there
within looking distance of me
as if she wanted to carry on a
conversation with me.
So, being the verbal person I
am, I talked to her. Before long
she started to answer me back
with a variation of cat sounds.
Our conversations extended to
talks on the front porch with
her curled up in my lap.
Somehow, she knew she had
me when I began to call her
over on a regular basis. It
became our special bonding
time. As I took the time to
know her I realized she was
way beyond a cat sitting atop a
garbage can, she was a unique
animal with a precious
personality. Our relationship
grew and she blossomed into a
gorgeous cat with many talents
and gifts.
One talent that I had never
witnessed in any of our other
cats was her eating habits. Most
of her food was eaten from her
paws as she picked the food up
to put it in her mouth. When
dinner is over she washes her
paws in her water dish and
gives them a good drying with
her tongue. It reminds me of a
raccoon's eating style. Another
talent is her soccer playing
ability. A piece of crumpled
paper thrown toward her means
the game is on. She is 100
percent accurate in returning


the paper ball. Her game
improves every day and she is a
willing player with anyone. All
you need to do is roll the paper
into a ball. The sound alerts her
and the fun begins.
We have learned her greatest
talent is not her eating style nor
her sports ability. Her greatest
talent is her gift of love. She
can sense when someone is
feeling low and needs the
comfort of her warm body
snuggled close to them. She
lays her head against you and
speaks with gentle eyes and
soft cooing sounds to make the
hurt go away. I've seen her
work her magic on family and
friends. She just knows when
it's needed and she is there to
comfort.
I am convinced there is a
human inside her beautiful gray
body. A special angel sent to
our family via Walmart. She
has shown us how to share the
gift of caring. Not only that but
she has shown me it is so
wrong to judge anyone by their
outside cover. When I first
looked at her all I saw was a
"garbage-can cat," but she has
shown me she is so much more
than I saw at first glance. She
is an important part of this
family, sharing her talents and
gifts and giving us joy beyond
measure. I am so glad I decided
to take another look at the
treasure in front of me. If not, I
would have missed so much.

Mother Dear Award" presented by granddaughters Shatrela Washington (left),
Kamala Lawrence (right) and daughter Lavota Washington (center back).


Scott was first to receive


Bertha Washington Award


Erica Scott was the inaugural recipient of "The
Bertha Lee Washington-Mother Dear Award,"
presented July 17 at Springhill Missionary
Baptist Church.
As organizers explain, "Mrs. Bertha Lee
Washington--affectionately known as Mother
Dear--was all about family and helping others.
"The love, devotion, dedication and support
she provided gave a strong will and desire in her
descendants to continue the service she began.
She lived by the motto: 'Helping others to be
happy is my life's goal.'
"Therefore, The Bertha Lee
Washington-Mother Dear Award is designed to
carry on the legacy of a loving matriarch.
"She was a faithful servant in the home, church
and community. Mother Dear was a strong
advocate of education and provided assistance to
others in continuing their pursuit, especially if


they were planning to attend Florida A & M
University.
"Always striving to be helpful, now the life she
lived speaks for her; the service she gave follows
after her, and the work she did is continued in her
descendants.
"This award is given to encourage others in
their pursuit of life and service to God, family
and community."
The award was presented during the
anniversary service of Springhill Missionary
Baptist Church.
Scott, a 2011 honor graduate of Taylor County
High School, will be attending Florida A&M
University in the fall.
Scott said the award provided her with a
certificate as well as a Lenovo (IBM) laptop
computer with software to assist in her studies at
FAMU.

90 players start fal

practice for Bulldogs


Nearly 90 Taylor County
High football players have
enjoyed an "energetic and
positive" start to fall practice
which got underway Monday
with two-a-day drills, according
to new Bulldog Head Coach
Steve Price.
Price, who is beginning
preparation for his first season
at the Bulldog helm, served two
years as defensive coordinator
before being named head coach
earlier this summer when Shane


Boggs took a job in his home
county in Tennessee.
Price said he counted 87
players out Monday, including
about 25 incoming 9th graders.
All will be competing for playing
time on both the varsity and
junior varsity when the season
rolls around in a few weeks.
"The kids have worked
extremely hard through the
first three practices. They know
what they have the ability to do
and they are working to achieve


it," Price said.
The Bulldogs went
undefeated (10-0) in the regular
season last year and completed
the season with a narrow 14-7
loss to Pensacola Catholic in
the regional finals of the state
playoffs.
Pensacola lost the following
week by a touchdown to
eventual state champs Trinity
Catholic of Ocala.
In a little over two weeks,
that same Trinity Catholic team


Bulldog quarterback Eli Grambling (1 5) returns for his senior season this fall with "a
mature" group of juniors and seniors to back him up.
Tampa Bay opens pre-season Friday


will travel to Perry to face the
Bulldogs in the annual pre-
season kickoff classic.
In addition to Trinity
Catholic, the Bulldogs will
also face another of the state's
elite programs this season in
Madison, which has been absent
from the TCHS schedule for
several years.
"We feel like we're a good
football team and we deserve to
be playing with those types of
teams," Price said.
The recent addition of
Beau Johnson as defensive
coordinator has been a positive
experience for the kids and
coaching staff, Price said.
"Beau has a way of interacting
with the kids and they have
really enjoyed it," Price said.
Price's team started fall
practice Monday following
a productive summer of
weight room work and 7-on-7
competitions.
The Bulldogs matched
up well with NFC, Madison
and Wakulla during weekly
tournaments, then placed second
in the Wakulla invitational.
They then completed the
summer league with the Colquitt
County (Ga.) tournament which
featured several dozen of the
South's top high school teams.
The Bulldogs' record was 4-5
with four games being lost by
three points or less.
Two-a-day practices will
end Thursday when the team is
allowed to put on pads and have
contact for the first time.

Some 450 conservation reefs deployed


REEF
Continued from page 1
build new fishing sites at other
locations within a five square
mile area.
Development of the SFMA
actually started more than
a decade ago when Mark
Dickert, a Taylor County native,
approached fisheries faculty at
the University of Florida to help
build artificial reefs offshore
from Steinhatchee. Those initial
discussions gave rise to the


concept of a major fisheries
management area. The goal is to
benefit the coastal economy by
boosting reef fish populations
that attract saltwater anglers to
the region. The site plan for the
SFMA is based on university
research and is made possible
by the FWC Artificial Reef
Program.
Just a few months ago, the
reef complex passed a major
milestone. In May and June,
452 of 500 planned "fisheries
conservation reefs" were


School supply drive continues
With school beginning in less than two weeks, the Perry Rotary Club will
begin wrapping up its second annual school supply drive next week. Club
Vice President Debbie Bassett (kneeling) is shown with Capital City Bank's

constructed. This project has
been a long-term partnership
between UF's Fisheries and
Aquatic Sciences, FWC and
local government. FWC
receives federal funding for reef
construction through the Sport
Fish Restoration Program. The
NOAA Fisheries-MARFIN
Program funds the associated
research and monitoring.
Initial reef construction
began in 2005, when a line of
40 standardized reefs were built
bracketing the Big Bend region
of Florida. These sites are
used as fisheries independent
monitoring stations intended
to aid gag stock assessments
and to evaluate the output of
conservation reefs deployed
in the management area. The
SFMA is permitted by the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers and
starts about 18 miles west of
Steinhatchee.
Conservation reef
construction began in May
and, with this new grant, will
be completed in spring 2012.
All SFMA reefs are made of
concrete cubes, each weighing a
ton, with a large central cavity
sized for larger-bodied fish, like
gag grouper.
Fisheries for long-lived
reef fish like gag are typically
sustained by periodic strong
year classes, and the SFMA
is attempting to maximize
that potential. By providing
additional reef structure to
shelter juvenile gag on their
multi-year journey from
shallow water nursery habitat
(seagrasses) to deep water
spawning grounds, more of the
young fish may survive and
grow larger during a critical
bottleneck in life.
The locations of conservation
reefs were randomly spread
over a 100 square-mile-area
and GPS coordinates will
not be made public, so as to
minimize fishing pressure.
Natural hard-bottom habitat
in the SFMA is generally flat
and much of the area has a thin
veneer of sand over a limestone


platform.
The reef cubes, without
directed fishing pressure,
are expected to benefit the
gag population by providing
juveniles more refuge from


predators and currents while
also providing them greater
access to more food over a large
area.

4-H day camps: Experience the adventure


By LORI WIGGINS
4-H Extension Agent II
Ten different 4-H Day
Camps were held this summer
with more than 350 youth
participating. The camps are
a great resource for youth to
utilize during the lazy days of


their summer vacation. Each
week camp activities were
centered around a different
theme, ranging from marine
science to culinary adventures.
4-H camps help youth to begin
to realize their full potential in
many different life skill areas.


Although campers learn others.
traditional camp activities like Teen
fishing and environmental utilize
education, the most important help as
things that children learn at while
4-H camps are how to become get
independent and how to develop experie
positive relationships with Parti


counselors are also
1 during the camps to
assist with camp activities
allowing them to
hands-on leadership
;nce.
cipating in camp is a


great experience for youth
because it makes them focus on
who they are away from their
comfort zone,
The experience often provides
youth with valuable skills and
knowledge that helps them
grow immensely in just a few


short days.

Janegale M. Boyd, president and CEO of FAHSA; State Representative Leonard
Bembry; and Tom Randle, vice president of public policy and government affairs
during the recent awards ceremony held in Orlando.


With his wife Susan by his
side, State Representative
Leonard Bembry was presented
the Florida Association of
Homes and Services for the
Aging's "Legislator of the
Year" award during its annual
convention in Orlando.
Bembry was recognized for
his work with House Bill 1037
(HB 1037), which unanimously
passed the Florida House
of Representatives and the
Florida Senate during the 2011
Legislative Session, and was
later signed by the governor.
This new law provides
Florida's seniors with additional
options for care at-home, and


creates new, much-needed
jobs for more Floridians, said
FAHSA's President and CEO
Janegale Boyd.
"The law allows Florida
seniors the opportunity to
contract for Continuing Care
Retirement Communities
(CCRC's) services while still
remaining in their home. Due
to the slow economy, seniors
are not able to sell their homes
at a reasonable value to support
their lifestyle in the future.
Some seniors may want to live
in their homes longer and this
legislation will allow them to
do so by providing supportive
services. Continuing care


at-home (CCAH) will allow
seniors that reside outside the
community future access to
shelter, nursing care, or personal
services at the CCRC until they
sell their home or decide to
move. The bill will also give
seniors the ability to plan for
their future," she explained.
Bembry said he knows
how important this issue is to
Florida's seniors and has had
some experience with senior
issues since his family was
involved in building a nursing
home many years ago.

'Shocking and unbelievable'


how some dogs are treated


Dear Editor:
I wonder, as many other
people have commented, about
the mentality of some of the
people in Taylor County that
own animals, especially dogs.
It is shocking and unbelievable
how so many of the poor
animals are tied up in the hot
sun, left out on cold nights,
in the rain, day in and day out
without shelter.
Then there are those that are
put in a shelter and never let
out to run and exercise which
they need. With such conditions
one wonders if they are given
fresh food and water daily or
ever taken to the veterinarian
for their needed yearly shots or
especially when hurt or sick.
People from out of town are


shocked at the living conditions
of these poor animals and how
cruel some of the people here
are toward their animals. And I
must say, in all my travel, I have
never seen so many animals
mistreated as they are here.
Also, it amazes me that parents
give children animals knowing
they are not capable and won't
take care of them.
The owner should be tied
up outside in hot and cold
weather, given food and water
occasionally and let the animal
stay in the house. That would
change their way of thinking
and they would know how the
poor animal feels.
What is it with these types
of people about owning an
animal? Is it wanting to show


their power, clout, authority
over some helpless, defenseless
animal? It baffles me.
The law states, as long as
there is a shelter and no matter
how small or the condition of
the animal they can do nothing
about it. There should be a law
forbidding such ill-bred people
from owning an animal until
they are taught how to properly
take care of them.
God put mankind in charge
of all these helpless animals
knowing they could not take
care of themselves. They know
joy, sadness, hunger, pain, etc.
just as humans do and don't you
worry, just because they can't
talk, they know and God knows
when they are mistreated.

Letters to the Editor


'Kudos' given to the public library


Dear Editor:
Kudos and a great big "thank
you" for the program that the
library offers to people who are
not able to get out and about.
I read a lot. I have a great
number of books but have read


them all numerous times. I
called the library and within five
days a very nice lady (I missed
her name) brought me a tote bag
of books that were down my
interest line.
This is such a great service.


Some of us are not into surfing
the Internet all day.
Just wanted them to know
how much I appreciate their
service.
Thank you again,
Mike McGowan


Dismay over debt ceiling issue


CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN...


Dear Editor:
I am writing to express
my profound dismay and
utter disbelief at the stubborn
behavior exhibited by some
members of the House of
Representatives over the
debt ceiling issue now before
Congress, namely the Tea Party
Republicans.
For the past few weeks,
Congress and the Obama
administration have been trying
to reach an agreement to raise
the nation's debt ceiling so the
United States government can
continue borrowing the money
it needs to pay its bills and
service its existing debts. In
the past, under administrations
of both parties, this has been
done without much of a fuss,
but on this latest round the
Republicans have elected to
use the debt ceiling vote as an
opportunity to address some
of the nation's serious fiscal
problems. Not such a bad idea,
right? With a burgeoning public
debt and a tremendous amount
of government spending with
sometimes questionable results,
I think everyone on both sides
of the aisle can agree that some
reforms are in order.
But the devil is in the details.
Two approaches to this problem
characterized the debate
over the past few weeks. The
Republicans, especially the
Tea Party faction within the
GOP, called for raising the debt
ceiling only if the bill included
extensive cuts to government
spending, including cuts to--or
restructuring of--entitlement
programs like Medicare,
Medicaid, and federal
unemployment assistance.
Such a bill would not, however,


123 S. Jefferson Street
Perry, Florida


include any new revenue from
taxpayers, regardless of their
income. To be fair, I should
note that some Republican
leaders bent over backwards
during this debate to make
sure the most vital entitlements
stayed in place for seniors and
veterans, and at length revenues
came back onto the table in a
very limited way.
What concerns me more
is.. how vehemently the Tea
Party faction in the House
fought their mainstream
Republican colleagues over
these concessions, claiming that
the plans did not cut enough.
Through all of this, President
Obama and the Democrats
advocated a plan that mixed
smaller cuts to government

'Heartbroken' by the


transportation debate


Dear Editor:
I attended the Taylor County
School Board meeting Tuesday,
Aug. 2, with the hopes that I
would be able to address the
board with a matter concerning
my recent bid for pest control
services.
You see I have started my
own pest control business and
have been seeking the contract
for the Taylor County Schools.
Mistakenly, I thought that my
bid would receive favor since I
was the low bid by as much as
12 percent next to the winning
bid from a pest control company
located almost two hours away
from Taylor County.
It's not that I'm incapable of


handling the magnitude of this
job because I did so for nearly
three years while working for
another company--years that, to
my knowledge, were performed
without any negative incidents.
In fact I did so with praises from
many during that period.
But let me return to the
subject of Tuesday night's
board meeting. I did not speak
at this meeting because after
listening to the board and the
public discuss the cuts to school
transportation, and how it would
affect the lives of so many
of our youth, my heart was
broken.
I heard how there are so many
programs eliminated and how
the board has done everything
they can to reduce costs. I
could not speak after knowing
how my issue was so small in
comparison to the real needs
here. And after that segment of
the meeting concluded I was
informed that the final decisions
concerning pest management
at the schools were made at the
last board meeting anyhow. And
so I left.
Still I feel the need to clear
up just a couple of issues
here. The matter involving my
business being rejected (I was
told) was due to my not yet
having a termite endorsement.
This rejection was not relevant
to the scope of work that I bid
on. The scope of work called
for GHP (general household
pests) pest management only.
In fact, termite control is bid
and contracted separately.
Furthermore, the fact that
our school system apparently
awards any and all extra add
on's to the contract holder
regardless of price isn't a cost
Please see page 5


Midweek Muddle


The subject of sandwiches came
up recently while I was having lunch
with ladies of great refinement.
"I remember mayonnaise
sandwiches," said one.
I emphasize, great refinement.
A mayonnaise sandwich--as the
name would imply--is two pieces of
bread with mayonnaise in-between.
"I grew up shortly after the
Depression," she noted, "and we
were glad to have that. Sometimes
we put raw onion on it too."
Thank God I missed the
Depression.
"You can't beat a banana
sandwich," said another.
The variations of banana
sandwich are delineated by region
and personality. The husband likes
mayonnaise, banana and peanut
butter. Elvis grilled his; some people
add bacon, honey or marshmallows.
I, however, just want bananas and
mayonnaise.
"My mother used to put pineapple
sandwiches in my lunchbox," I
offered, and then I couldn't help
but laugh while remembering.
Mother thought it was completely
improper to eat a sandwich with
the "ends" intact so she eliminated
them from the light bread. Yes, light
bread is white bread--the kind that
is sticky and wonderful and I could
eat a loaf right now. The pineapple
ring rested in a thick slather of
mayonnaise.
Or should we say it languished?
By lunchtime, a pineapple
sandwich was a soggy entree on the
run. I don't know if zipper-closure
bags hadn't been invented at the
time or if my Mother refused to buy
them because of economic concerns
(she was frugal, to be sure), but we
only had wax paper, aluminum foil
and plastic wrap.
When I complained about the
soggy nature of the pineapple
sandwich, she agreed to wrap the
pineapple individually, and then
I would add it to the mayonnaise-
slathered bread at lunchtime.
It seemed like a good plan, but
the pineapple juice leaked through
the plastic wrap and when I got to
my lunchbox, the ants had arrived
first. They were making quick work


Le Lunchbox


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN

of my lunch and I had to bum off
friends.
I had not thought of it until
recently.
But I do often remember the
boiled eggs she would send in my
red plaid lunchbox. Actually, I
remember them every time I peel
one. After boiling an egg, Mother
would remove the shell and then
wrap the egg in plastic wrap. Or
if she was out of that, she'd wrap
it in wax paper and secure it with
a rubber band. Maybe two rubber
bands.
After the egg bounced around in
my lunchbox and the rubber band
tortured it, the unveiling was always
a thing of great delight.
"Ooooooh, look at Susan's egg,"
my friends would say disparagingly.
It appeared to need plastic
surgery, from the digs made by her
quickly removing the shell, to the
circular marks made by the rubber
band. It was hideous.
And I can't eat hideous food.
"Well, then, you make your own
lunch," Mother said, leaving the
lunchbox out for me to master.
The only thing more hideous
than a disfigured egg, desperately
in need of plastic surgery, was me
trying to think of what to pack in
my lunchbox on a school morning
when I already had to consider what
to wear and fix my hair, too.
Mother would sit in the kitchen,
snap green beans in her yellow
housecoat, and watch me fumble
around trying to smear peanut
butter on bread. I now realize
why it was so difficult: she kept
it in the refrigerator with the jelly.
Have you ever tried to smear stiff
peanut butter on a piece of light
bread with no crusts? Suddenly,
my sandwiches were as disfigured
as my boiled egg.
It didn't take long for me to
decide that a slippery pineapple
sandwich and a mutilated boiled
egg--prepared by loving hands--were
far more acceptable, than rising 15
minutes early to assume the task
on my own....with only occasional
success.
So I never complained again.
Or, at least, not to her.

Letters to the Editor



Debt ceiling: 'A balanced approach makes much more sense'


DEBT CEILING
Continued from page 3

behaved during this dramatic
debt ceiling debacle I am
beginning to think I was sold a
bill of goods.
Even when Democrats
offered compromise plans
that cut way deeper into
entitlement programs than
their constituencies could ever
have wanted them to, the GOP
has shot these proposals down
out of hand because they also
included a revenue component,
usually a reduction in tax
breaks or tax loopholes for
Americans making hundreds of
thousands of dollars a year or
more.
Paradoxically, these
grassroots Tea Party folks are
saying that it's alright for the
unemployed person looking for
a job, the Medicare or Medicare
recipient, or other beneficiary
of government assistance to
accept decreased benefits or
have to wait longer to get
into the programs--while it's
not alright to ask Wall Street
bankers, corporate leaders, and
other wealthy Americans to
pay anywhere near the same
percentage of income in taxes
that their employees do.
Who, may I ask, does the
Republican Party represent?
Who does Rep. Southerland
believe gave him nearly 60
percent of Taylor County's
votes for his seat in the House
in 2010? I doubt even a quarter
of that percentage belong to the
wealthy upper crust whose low
tax rates are protected by the Tea


Party's behavior at the expense
of the rest of Americans who
may someday honestly need
Medicare, unemployment, or
some other government program
that the Tea Party is looking to
slash. Tax breaks and loopholes
for the wealthy make sense if
those people actually convert
their benefits into jobs and
economic activity, but I am not
convinced that the wealthy are
doing enough toward this end
to justify continued tax breaks
of this kind while programs that
benefit the rest of us remain on
the chopping block.
Now, of course, some people
will never use Medicare, will
never be dependent on Social
Security, and by the grace of
God will never need federal
or even state unemployment
benefits, so this may not seem
like such a big deal. If this is
you, I ask you to consider the
other potential dangers of the
kind of politics we've seen the
last couple of weeks.
Even today (Aug. 1), even
after Congressional leaders and
the White House have managed
to come to a consensus on a plan
that should pass, the Dow has
dropped for at least five days in
a row because investors are still
worrying that Congress might
actually allow the United States
to default for the first time ever
on its debt obligations. Credit
rating agencies are considering
dropping the nation's coveted
triple-A status, which could
have a really nasty string of
consequences.
Foreign newspapers--and the
investors who read them--are


wondering what on Earth has
gotten into our heads to make
us drive ourselves so close to
disaster, and whether we might
do it again. And for what? So
House Republicans, particularly
the Tea Party, can get everything
they want, right now, with little
to no compromise.
Sure, Obama and the
Democrats were also firm in
their resolve, but the plan they
backed was balanced, not "all
cuts," which is what this latest
compromise is starting to look


like. Holding the national
economy hostage like this is
irresponsible even Republican
Senator John McCain called it
"bizarre" on the Senate floor
last week.
I am sure there are other
ways to look at this issue, and
I am certainly not suggesting
that President Obama and the
Democrats are saints among
sinners in this ridiculous mess.
What the evidence does suggest
to me at this point, however, is
that Taylor County's interests


are not being adequately served
by its current representative in
the House, or by the Tea Party in
general. Government spending
and debt need to be controlled,
sooner rather than later, but not
exclusively at the expense of the
middle class and the credibility
of this country in the eyes of its
creditors.
A balanced approach that
includes both responsible, well-
planned cuts and increased
revenues in taxes from the
wealthiest Americans who can


most afford them makes much
more sense. Whether you agree
with me or not, I hope we the
citizens of this county will
take a long look at what has
happened these past few weeks,
think through what we really
need right now--not just ideally
but really--and contact our
Congressional representatives
to let them know what we
think.

Contractor questions 'extras'


TRANSPORTATION
Continued from page 3

effective practice at all.
Don't get me wrong. As a
business owner, I would love
to receive such a monopoly on
work in my area of expertise;
being able to bring any price I
wanted to the table and having
the school board just write
me a check. But as a public
servant, you can not award such
monopolies to any business
and expect to get a low and fair
price.
And if you do so how can you
sit before the public and say you
have done everything you can to
reduce the budget? This is what
I heard from the board Tuesday
night. That they had looked
at all discretionary spending
to see if they could trim the
budget. I guess they overlooked
the pest control bids. Termites
are alarming when they are


found because they do damage.
And most of my competitors
will use that fear to establish
an immediate necessity to
perform their services for you.
But FYI termites work slowly
and you do have time to make
an informed and cost effective
decision. So my point is there
is time to address this urgent
matter in a sensible fashion and
competitively bid it out once
detected.
Personally, I hate that I lost
this contract due to the perceived
fears that I would somehow
have a negative effect by not yet
having my termite endorsement.
But worse yet is the fact that
our school board paid out over
one thousand extra dollars for
the convenience to award the
contract to a larger company
that will most likely up the
ante on any future termite work
done. And make no mistake,
these 'extra' treatments never


come cheap even when done
competitively.
I know this as I used to
do them for Taylor County
School System. Even a few
so-called "extras" can exceed
the total amount of your entire
pest control contract. Monies
that would have been better
spent addressing the needs of
the children's programs and
transportation. And I wonder if
this is what I see in my area of
expertise.
Now I must ask, "How
many other areas of contract
services are getting this kind
of treatment, completely
ignoring free enterprise and
the lowest bid?" I sent a letter
to every board member and the
superintendent prior to writing
this letter to the editor. I received
no response from anyone on the
board. I believe it's time to take
the issue to the people.

Bill filed by Bembry


BEMBRY
Continued from page 1
continuing care retirement
communities, their residents
and their future residents. It
allows seniors the flexibility
to remain in their homes while
still being able to participate
in community activities and
services of a CCRC before they
actually move into the facility.
The socialization and services
these seniors will enjoy will
also help reduce costs shared by
the residents of the CCRC," said
Bembry.
While the bill was moving
though the legislature and
governor's office it was
supported by the Florida
Association of Homes and
Services for the Aging, the
Florida Life Care Residents
Association and Florida's
Office of Insurance Regulation.
"During these extremely
challenging economic
conditions, our state must find
ways to preserve and grow
jobs," said Bembry. "When
Janegale Boyd and Tom Randle
with the Florida Homes and
Services for the Aging brought
this legislation to my attention
I was anxious to file the bill and
get moving."
The law will add much
needed jobs around the state as
the CCRC's increase their staff
to meet the needs of these new
off-site residents. It will be up


to the individual CCRC's to
determine which additional
services they will provide, Boyd
noted.
"FAHSA is proud to present
the award to Representative
Bembry because without his
leadership and tenacity we
would not have been able to pass
this bill in the last 30 days of
session. I know Representative
Bembry felt a strong wave
of support for him as more
than 450 of our members gave
him a loud and standing ovation
for all of his hard work," she
said.
FAHSA was established in
1963 as a Florida not-for-profit
corporation. Its purpose is "to
provide leadership, advocacy,
and education for retirement
housing and nursing home
communities that serve the
needs of Florida's retirees."
Boyd noted, "FAHSA is
committed to assisting its
members in providing the
highest quality of services
possible to the residents they
serve. FAHSA is comprised of
approximately 500 of the state's
premier elder care organizations
and business associates. More
than 70,000 elder persons
reside in FAHSA-member
communities. Thousands
more are served through home
health services, adult day care
centers, and other community
outreach programs offered by
our members."
