Pendarvis pleads guilty

to murder, sentenced

to 28 years in prison

Grim details emerged
Monday about the March 11
shooting death of an 18-year-
old Old Town woman whose
body was left in the woods
along Stephens Landing Road
off Highway 51 in Tennille.
Jenny Jackson was shot once
with a pistol and three more
times with a 22-caliber rifle.
Her body was dragged into the
woods and her clothes were
dumped in the Suwannee River.
Those were the facts released
by prosecutors following a
guilty plea entered by Jackson.'s
killer, Torry Allen Pendarvis,

23, of Newberry.
Pendarvis appeared before
Judge James Roy Bean Monday
morning to formalize the
agreement and to receive his
Under the agreement
reached with prosecutors-
and approved by the victim's
family-he was sentenced to 28
years in prison with a minimum/
mandatory term of 25 years.
"That he means he will not
receive any 'gain time' during
the first 25 years of his sentence.
Upon his release he will have 10
years of probation to serve as

well," Assistant State Attorney
Dave Phelps explained.
Pendarvis was originally
charged with first degree
murder. However, under the
plea agreement, that charge
was reduced to second degree
"A first degree murder
sentence carries a mandatory
life sentence. The (Jackson)
family was in agreement to
having him receive a less than
life sentence," Phelps said.

County inundated with SHIP applicants

Applications for State
Housing Initiatives Partnership
(SHIP) assistance began
briskly Tuesday, with nearly 50
applications handed out in the
first 90 minutes.
County Grants Coordinator
Melody Cox said people were
waiting for the doors to open
that morning and she expected
more than 100 applicants would
be handed out by the end of the

this year, the county finally 203 Forest Park Dr.

They did not solicit any others demolition and new construction
because the state had not funded projects, as the Florida

Legislature implemented a one
year prohibition on state funding
being used for new construction

For the homebuyer assistance
program, the maximum amount
of SHIP funds that may be
awarded per unit is $10,000; the
maximum is not awarded to all
applicants. Homebuyers may

Federal housing rehab moves forward

With $875,000 in federal
Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) funds
for housing rehabilitation and
reconstruction in hand, county
officials are hoping to begin
putting projects out for bid next
Taylor County received a
$750,000 grant, which they
matched with $125,000 of State
Housing Initiative Partnership

(SHIP) funds, and solicited to be used in the unincorporated

applications in April.
According to Grants
Coordinator Melody Cox, the
county received 61 applications,
although seven were ultimately
found to be ineligible because
the applicants either lived within
the City of Perry limits or had
not paid their property taxes.
Cox said the requirements of
the grant only allow the funds

Last month, the Taylor
County Commission approved
a ranking list of the applicants.
"CDBG required we use a
ranking point system to create

the list," Cox said. "They also
required we rank the elderly and
the handicapped first."
Based on the number of
projects which will require
demolition and reconstruction,
Cox said she expects the
county to be able to fund 10 to

10 projects are in Steinhatchee,

she added.
Currently the county is
conducting home inspections
because several of the project
homes require lead-based
paint inspections, Cox said.
Additionally, several require
applications to the Department
of State because they are more
than 50 years old.
"We hope to go out for bids in
September," Cox said.

The Debt Ceiling Mess


It's interesting to see the 'spin'
put on political problems by
those with opposing viewpoints.
The recent debt ceiling actions
by Congress and the president
was a good example of winners
being called losers.
The president began an
unprecedented (one of his
favorite words) spending
spree immediately after being
inaugurated. For the first
nine months of his term he
was operating under the Bush
budget, which he totally ignored.
Since that budget expired in
2009 he and the Congress have
not even bothered to prepare an
annual budget, one of the most
important working documents
the government requires. He
just continued borrowing and
spending money without any
authority until he brought the
country to the brink of financial
Here's the spending plan
in layman's terms. Suppose
you earned $1,000 every week
and spent $1,400 every week.
You would have to borrow
the extra $400. At some point

whoever was lending you the
$400 weekly would see that
you were getting so deeply into
debt that it was unlikely that
you could ever repay them.
They would just quit lending
money to you. You would
be broke. The government
is borrowing $400 for every
$1,000 it spends, except that it
calculates in billions of dollars,
not thousands. The amount
already owed is approaching the
country's net worth.
Last November voters
across the country sent about
70 new members to the U.S.
House of Representatives
with instructions to stop the
spending. The president
ignored that very clear message
and kept spending. Then, when
it came time to raise the debt
ceiling (beyond which he could
not go) he asked Congress to
just raise the ceiling. He called
it a "clean" raise, meaning,
"Just give me the money to
spend." Fortunately for us,
the Republicans in the House
stood fast and said, "No!" Then
he wanted them to increase

taxes to provide more money
to spend. Again, they said,
"No!" They demanded that he
cut spending about $3 for every
$1 in tax increases. He wanted
to increase taxes now and cut
spending later, but his string of
broken promises made that a
fool's bargain.
The president's supporters
pointed out that the debt ceiling
had been raised numerous times
in the past with little debate.
True, but the national debt back
then was not unreasonable.
Now it is enormous.
After much political sparring,
name-calling and downright lies
the House agreed to a very, very
small cut in spending (about one
per cent, I believe) in exchange
for a modest increase in the
debt ceiling. This will postpone
the real showdown for a few
months, at which time a special
committee is supposed to
present a plan requiring an up-
or-down vote by Congress.
Now the democrats are
accusing the republicans

Letters to the Editor ;

'Amazed' by number of boats at ramp

Dear Editor:-
I've been waiting on the
grand opening article on the
boat ramp finally to see who
paid to launch first, did I miss
I was in the area on Saturday
and was amazed how many
boats had been launched prior
to 10 a.m. with a seemingly
endless flow still coming.
Also impressed how virtually
everyone had their stuff ready
before backing down the ramp
for a quick launch, something
not seen very often at Keaton
I never figured out the
purpose of the guy at the pay
box because there was a lot
of grumbling that if you were
gonna stand there, be helpful
and make change for idiots who
can't figure out they need to
bring correct change.
His presence did seem to
instill a false sense of the need
to pay the launch fee, maybe
they should try this at Keaton

because the times I've been
there, the box appeared to have
poison ivy because almost
everyone stayed well away
from it. Oh, that's right, they
must have had their annual
stickers, right?
Even more impressed with
what seemed to be a safe flow
of traffic on a road that some
feel like needs to be re-routed?

Save that money and put some
asphalt on that limerock before
it turns into a sandbox.
Does the same company have
the boat ramp contract as the
one paving on South Jefferson
Street? Seems like they would
work at the ramp for a day then
disrupt traffic at Wal-Mart the

Parent upset

over school

lunch policy
Dear Editor:
I am curious as to why our
children in the Taylor County
schools are treated worse than
inmates in prison.
If an inmate doesn't have
money in their account they
still get to eat the same food as
everyone else, they don't get fed
graham crackers for breakfast
and peanut butter sandwiches
for lunch. They get to eat the
same as everyone else. I want
to know why the Taylor County
School system thinks it's ok to
treat our children worse than
A lot of us parents do not get
the print-outs showing our child
is in the negative until they're
feeding our children like they
are criminals and have done
something wrong.
David Leggett

When you move to a small town,
you must either build a new house or
forever live in a home named for the
people who came before you.
The Lutzes live in the Beers' old home,
which was originally the Joneses' home,
and may forever be called that.
In my neighborhood, the Williamses
arq trying to sell the Proen7zs home, spo
you- could lie inm that one althoiih it
will never have your name attached.
Downtown Perry is much the same.
Recently, we had a visitor who stood in
the newspaper's front office and said,
"I remember when this used to be the
old bus station."
And so it was, according to that
visitor and many others who go "back
in the day" easily.
We escorted our visitor outside and
let her point to where the Poinsettia
Restaurant was. Now askSam sits in
that space and configures software for
people in Istanbul.
Just down the block, Van H. Priest
5 & 10 was every child's delight with
balsa airplanes and paper dolls. An
anchor in the downtown district, it later
became Yarbrough Furniture before
transforming itself into a restaurant,
Rosehead Junction.
I miss Emanuel Milatos and his shoe
shop. The smell of leather was almost
as pleasant as Emanuel's Greek accent.
"They no make shoes like they used to,"
he said and he was right. It's sad not to
have a Greek vendor on the main street,
for they've always been there.
Across from the newspaper, Vera's
became Jeanette's which became
He-Brews and is now Debbie's Jewels.
I miss Perry Hardware, and every
nut and bolt which worked there. I
miss Bloodworth's Drugs and the main
attraction, James himself. I miss all the
karate kids of Perry being dropped off
for Sensei Jimmy Bowden.
My friends in Atlanta are astonished
that I get my afternoon caffeine and
all my clothes altered just across
the street, while my hair is trimmed
three doors down, and my banking
is completed on the back side of the
block. If there was a grocery store in
the downtown district, I might never
see U.S. 19 except on weekends.
But I give you this Mayberry, R.F.D.,
tour of Perry to express genuine
concern about outsiders. I was once an
outsider and they're not always easily
accepted. But worse than me are the
outsiders who buy up the downtown
buildings and then expect Hard Rock
Cafe to locate here. When that doesn't
happen (and it doesn't happen here),
they remain outsiders, allowing their
purchased properties to slowly perish
while the rest of us just stand by
helplessly and watch.
I'm worried about our corners: Towne
Square Grocery no longer sells produce
and staples, Espresso Yourself still
looks attractive (yet empty), and the
Dansby Building is beautiful brick with

ve it, or lose it

no one to love it. Bloodworth's can't
hold a candle to its past and the site of
the old Emporium is a gaping hole.
This would be the place, of course,
where I would commend Wilson/
O'Quinn's Pharmacy for keeping up
appearances. Poised to celebrate its
100th anniversary, this business is
neat as a pin and certainly gives a good
Linpressionio tolose ktho pass through.,.
and there are those who pass through.
The businesses down that block follow
suit, ending with the Taylor County
Historical Society's building which
remains as proud as its First National
Bank heritage.
Kudos to the beautiful new yet
Old Depot, to the neat facade of City
Hall, the historically renovated First
United Methodist Church and the Perry
Woman's Club for working toward a
needed facelift. The Courthouse and
its Annex (old post office) as well as
the Rawls Building are neat and freshly
painted; we need more like them. Home
and business owners who work to
improve their curb appeal give the rest
of us a good reputation.
You don't have to go much farther
down Jefferson Street, however, to
realize that rental houses now belong
to people who don't want painted
shutters or picket fences; they don't
even want a yard. Check out the
property appraiser's list and you'll find
one out-of-town owner after another.
Do they care? It doesn't seem so.
Perhaps like you, I don't have a lot
of excess capital to spend on houses
I'm not living in, but I appeal to those
who might: if you care one whit about
your town, don't sell to someone in
Sebring who doesn't care and never
will. Easy cash is hard to turn down,
I'm sure, but this community's history
and its main thoroughfare are being
compromised by sales to people who
are content to leave storefronts empty
and unattractive until the end of time.
They are also willing to allow homes
on our main street to deteriorate in
structure and appearance.
Our downtown is still more lively
than many I've driven through, but the
competition is getting greater. Madison
lures people to its downtown with
attractive lighting and parking, as does
High Springs with its antique markets.
Perry doesn't need to be a cookie-cutter
replica of either of these towns, but it
needs to decide that its downtown is
worthy of salvation, and then work to
ensure it.
It never hurts to market your best
Selling them, however, to individuals
or companies who want to flip or just
flop, rarely helps those families left
here trying to make a living and sustain
a community.
I'm still just an outsider, but if
I was from a third, fourth or fifth
generation family here, I wouldn't let
the carpetbaggers in again.

owner was not in one of those trucks because no one stopped. Jill passed him, too, and then
turned around to pick him up and try to find his owner.
He was just a dog who was bruised and scratched
and hungry. Perhaps one of those passing cars had
not moved over far enough to avoid him and nicked
him. The caretaker at the local garbage drop off didn't

overnight, locked in the facility. After all, he was only
a dog. The next day Jill checked on him. No one

First 25 years of Pendarvis' sentence is mandatory

Continued from page 1
Jarvis was also in court to
witness the sentencing along
with family members of both
Pendarvis and Jackson.
When it was time for Bean to
consider the plea deal, Pendarvis
was led from the courthouse's
holding cell to the courtroom.
Phelps said Pendarvis was
facing charges of first degree
murder and tampering with
evidence. According to the plea
deal, however, Pendarvis agreed
to plead guilty to second degree
murder by discharging a firearm
and tampering with evidence.
On the second charge,
Pendarvis was facing 158 days,
with credit for the 158 days he

has served in the Taylor County
On the first charge, Pendarvis
was facing 28 years in prison,
with the first 25 being a
mandatory minimum because a
firearm was used. This sentence
will be consecutive to the other,
meaning Pendarvis will not
receive any credit toward to the
28 years for time served.
His prison sentence will
be followed by 10 years of
probation. He will also be
required to pay $8,000 in
restitution for funeral costs,
$100 in court costs, $350 for
investigation costs and $500 for
During the proceedings,
Pendarvis did not speak except
to answer the judge's questions

with a "Yes, sir," or "No, sir."
Pendarvis' attorney pointed
out that he had only deposed one
witness, the medical examiner,
and praised the reports provided
by the Taylor County Sheriff's
Judge Bean acknowledged
there were family members
present in the courtroom, but
they did not wish to speak in
court. According to Phelps, the
family provided the court with a
letter for Judge Bean to read but
asked that it not be read aloud
in court.
Bean asked Pendarvis a series
of questions regarding the plea
before accepting it as written.
He then asked Pendarvis if there
was anything else he would like
to add.

"No, sir," Pendarvis said.
He was then fingerprinted and
led back to the holding cell. As
he left the courtroom, several
family members broke into
In a subsequent interview,
Phelps described the events
leading up to the murder:
"Pendarvis and Jackson had
known one another before
Pendarvis' marriage to another
woman. They had reconnected,
got into an argument and that's
when Pendarvis shot her once
with a pistol as they traveled in
a vehicle through Dixie County.
Once they crossed the Taylor
County line, he dragged her
from the car into the woods and
then shot her three more times
with a 22 (rifle). She was still

alive when he shot her in Taylor
Additional reports indicate
that Pendarvis and Jackson both
grew up in Dixie County.
Pendarvis graduated from
Dixie County High School in
2007, and most recently married
in Gilchrist County on Oct.
9, 2010. Jackson, his former
girlfriend, graduated from Dixie
County High School in 2010.
"The Dixie County Sheriff's
Office received a 911 call at
1:09 a.m. on Friday (March 11)
from Torrey Pendarvis' father
who requested a deputy come to
the weight scales in Old Town.
According to the caller, his son
had come to his place of work
and said that he had been in an
accidental shooting incident

while hunting earlier in the
evening," the Gilchrist County
Journal in Trenton reported.
During this time, co-workers
of the victim called 911 and said
that she had taken her break
earlier in the evening and had
not returned to work. This was
reportedly out of character for
Jackson and they asked deputies
to look for her in case she had
some difficulty.
In the meantime, Pendarvis
made several statements to the
deputy about the incident not
actually involving a hunting
accident, and that Jackson's
body was located in a wooded
area in Taylor County, near
"He led law enforcement to
her body," Phelps said.

'Congress is in the business of

spending other people's money'

Continued from page 2
in the House of failing to
compromise. Well, why should
they compromise? The voters'
intentions were clear. They
want government spending
curtailed. And why do the
Democrats think the president's
wishes should go unchallenged?
He's the one at fault for getting
us into this mess so he's the one
whose plans should be changed.
We owe the Republicans a debt
of gratitude for standing up and
demanding prudent action by
the president.
Of course, Democrats and
Republicans in Congress all
recognize that government
spending must be cut seriously.
This will, sooner or later, mean
reducing some of the goodies
that they have promised in the
past in order to get elected and
re-elected. The Obama health
care plan calls for a $500
billion cut in Medicare, yet the
Democrats are accusing the
Republicans of trying to destroy
Medicare. Realistically, it
must be cut even more or else
our taxes must be increased
significantly to pay for it. And
there's the main problem.
Too many, perhaps a vast
majority, of Americans think
they have paid for the Medicare
benefits they receive. They
don't understand that what they
paid to the government over a
lifetime could be used up in one
major hospital stay. Every year
all of the taxpayers are making
up the shortage of Medicare
dollars. Either all taxpayers,
including those receiving
Medicare (primarily older and/
or retired folks), must pay
more for what they get, or else
some benefits must be limited
or eliminated. Neither the
Republicans nor the Democrats
in Congress can bear the
thought of being responsible
for such an unpopular action.
The Democrats think the only
answer is to increase taxes.
The Republicans want overall
government spending cut.
A similar problem exists
with Social Security. A House
bill that would, 15 years in
the future, pay less benefits

to persons retiring then, was
considered dead on arrival
in the Senate. The plan was
reasonable and would allow
future retirees to better plan for
their retirement years, but would
make no change for persons
retiring within the next 15
years or those already receiving
Social Security benefits.
Unfortunately, many Democrats
screamed that the Republicans
wanted to cut Social Security
and most older recipients didn't
hear the part that said they
would not be affected. But, one
way or another, the time will
come when the system can no
longer pay what it has promised
because the income from
workers can't keep up with the
payments to retirees.
Every proposal to cut
spending is strongly opposed by
those who are receiving benefits
at the expense of others.
Everyone receiving Medicare,
Social Security, Medicaid, food
stamps or any of the numerous
government payments for a
multitude of reasons may say
they favor cutting government
spending, but not their benefits.
Quite a few years ago it
was apparent that many of
the military posts and naval
installations built during World
War II were unneeded, but
every time a proposal was
made to close one of them the
congressional delegation from
the state affected protested
strongly. They sensed that they
would not get re-elected if a
base closed and many unneeded

employees were laid off. The
armed forces wanted to close the
unneeded facilities and spend
their money on more useful
things. Finally an independent
base closure committee was
They periodically submitted
to Congress a list of facilities
to be closed. Congress
could only vote yes or no.
That allowed the individual
members to claim they were
not responsible for closures in
their districts because it was out
of their hands. Even the best
politicians seem to fear taking
responsibility for unpopular
actions. The president seems
to avoid taking any responsible
action in any matter.
The special committee that
is to make recommendations
to Congress in a few months
concerning spending cuts and/or
tax increases is so ideologically
divided that I will be surprised
if any substantial improvement
in the country's debt problem
results from their deliberations.
One thing is clear: If you're
broke or nearly broke, reduce
spending. That's easy to
understand, but Congress is in
the business of spending other
people's money, so it may
not seem like real money to
Maybe the solution is to keep
replacing members of Congress
until a majority of them can get
it right. In the meantime, stand
by for higher taxes, which will
increase the cost of everything
you buy.

NFCC shifts funding from historic

Wardlaw-Smith-Goza Mansion

The Wardlaw-Smith-Goza
Conference Center in Madison
is how operating as a self-
tsupprthiig ent iiitie that
no longer receives financial
support from North Florida
Community College's (NFCC)
general operating budget.
The shift in funding was
approved by the NFCC
District Board of Trustees
and considered a necessary
change as the college priorities
expenditures amidst another
year of reduced state funding.
A special announcement
regarding the change was
sent to NFCC's "Friends of
the Mansion" members in
"Over the years, Friends of
the Mansion members have
made monetary donations,
volunteered time and shown a
great love for NFCC's historic
conference center," said Maria
Greene, WSG Conference
Center coordinator. "We are

making changes, but our annual
membership drive is currently
underway and we continue to
hold events, weddings and tours
in the mansion. It's business as
usual for now as we look for
ways to build extra revenue."
Greene is looking as far
ahead as June 2012 with her
current budget and needs the
continued support of donors and
the community.
According to NFCC
President John Grosskopf, the
college is also actively seeking
partnerships or alternative
solutions that can keep the WSG
Conference Center open to the
public; even if that means taking
NFCC out of the equation.
"NFCC is very proud of its
tenure as the primary steward
of this very important local
treasure; however, we are now
in a position where we must
align all of our resources to
the fulfillment of our primary
mission, and we cannot

continue to fund this endeavor,"
said Grosskopf. "We will be
working to find our successor to
take over from here."
The Wardlaw-Smith-Goza
Conference Center, listed in
the Historic American Building
Survey" and the National
Register of Historic Places, was
built in 1860.

Ready to Work credentialing
program. Florida Ready to
Work is part of a nationwide
Career Readiness Credentialing
network. Through this program,
jobseekers review and increase
their basic skills and are then
assessed to determine their
skill level, earning a bronze,
silver, or gold credential. The
credential will be signed by
Governor Rick Scott. Youth
who diligently access this

"Workforce: Solutions for
North Florida's Economy," says
the sign above the main Career
Center located at 705 East
Base Street in Madison. By
the program's end, it is hoped
that the young people served
this summer through iWork3
will have discovered more
about themselves and overcome
the barriers facing them since
enrolling in this innovative work
readiness program. Another goal
of the program is to put more
young people in the talent
pipeline from which area
employers choose their future
iWork3 and other career and

employment focused activities
are made available to area youth
and adults through national
legislation like the Workforce
Investment Act (WIA)
which replaced the Job
Training Partnership Act (JTPA)
in 1998.
In such legislation, a year-
round youth program was
established to assist youth with
facing barriers to employment
and with opportunities to move
toward self-sufficient (high
skill/high wage) occupations
available in this region.
The year-round youth career
consultant is Sara Shepherd.

Perry WTP Has Levels of Haloacetic Acids [Five] Above Drinking Water Standards

What Happened?
Our water system rccL'nfil violated a drinking water standard.Although this is not an emergency, as our cus-
tomers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received from sam-
ples taken -1 2121 i I show that our system exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL),
for Disinfection By-Products (DBPs), which includes Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids
IFivel (HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter (ug/L) and the average level of TTHMs
over the last year was 78.1 ug/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 ug/L, the average level of HAA5s over the
last year was 63.6 ug/L.

What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience prob-
lems with their liver, kidneys or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years may have an in-
creased risk of getting cancer.
Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.

What is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBP levels: We are flushing the water system.
We anticipate resolving the problem within this time frame: As soon as possible.
For more information, please contact Chester McAfee at (850) 584-7940, ext. 3.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have
received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses). You
can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

'A year's worth of learning,

a year's worth of teaching'

A message from the Superintendent of Schools


Dear Friends,
As with any school system the
partnership between community
and schools is a key component in
the success of a public school system.
In Taylor County, we have schools
we all should be proud of. In each
of our schools we have dedicated
school administrators, great teachers,
and committed staffs. As we begin
our new year I want
to encourage that the r
strong commitment that
we have had from our
parents, citizens, and -
community continue and
be the best it has ever
Our students, teachers,
and principals will all
be facing many changes
this year brought on by
our state lawmakers.
We will be meeting the Superintend
requirements on the new dress code
policy with our school uniform
standard of dress. We are excited and
think this will be a school spirit builder
as well as putting the emphasis on
what students learn and not how
stylish they can be. We are also
implementing a new administrator
and teacher evaluation system that
puts a greater emphasis on student
learning. We are working through
this as part of FLDOE requirements
as well as Race to The Top grant
New programs for 2011-12 will be
the start-up of an LPN program at
Taylor Technical Institute and a Bio
Medical STEM Academy at Taylor

The Taylor County School
Board has adopted a uniform
standard of dress for students
in grades K-12, effective this
school year"'
Under the new standards,
students will be held to a
uniform dress code of solid
colored blue, black or khaki
pants and solid colored orange,
blue or white t-shirts, Polos
or Oxford shirts. (The school

County High School. We are pleased
to be offering these career-technical
programs for our students.
As we continue to look at how we
can provide the best educational
experience for our students, we must
keep the good things going strong,
take a fresh look at those who need
our help to improve, and have the
courage to envision different ways
of doing this. We have
come a long way in
managing our school
district and living within
our financial means. If
we are to increase the

students, provide services

nt Paul Dyal must ask our community
and voters what they wish for our
schools. I have been honored to be the
Superintendent through these "tough
times" we have all been facing.
I pray that 2011-12 brings the best
school year Taylor County has ever
experienced. We want each of our
students to enjoy their school year
and gain a year's worth of learning
for a year's worth of teaching. Our
goal is and has always been to have
our students be successful and know
they are cared about by our schools
and school district. To all of our
stakeholders, "Good Luck in 11-12
and as always, Go Bulldogs."

The bus schedule published in this edition not only adds the stops within two miles
which would have been eliminated this year for students at Perry Primary School
and Taylor County Elementary School, but also those eliminated two years ago for
students at Taylor County Middle School and Taylor County High School. The school
board was expected to vote on the matter during its meeting Tuesday evening.

Regardless of 2-mile limit

New bus schedule includes

stops for all students K-12

It appears likely the Taylor
County School District will
backtrack on plans to eliminate
bus transportation for students
who live within two miles of
their schools.
According to Superintendent
Paul Dyal, the school board was
set to consider Tuesday evening
a new proposal "significantly
different" from the one which
had been presented earlier this
,a summer.
Although Dyal would not
elaborate on the plan's details
when asked Monday because
the board had not yet been
presented with the new proposal,
the bus schedule provided to
the Taco Times for this special
edition by the district includes
stops for all students K-12,
regardless of the two-mile

Taylor County Schools improve their grades

Taylor County schools
showed improvement last year,
with most improving their grade
over the previous year.
Taylor County Middle
School (TCMS) earned an "A"
grade while Taylor County
Elementary School (TCES)
maintained its "C" score and
Steinhatchee School improved
from a "D" to a "C."
Perry Primary School is
included with TCES. Taylor
County High School, due to
changes in the grading criteria
for high schools across the state,
will not receive its score until

"We are certainly very proud
of Taylor County Middle School
regaining the status as an 'A'
school for the 10-11 school
year," Superintendent Paul Dyal
"We all send out
congratulations to the
administrators, teachers, and
support personnel at TCMS."
The school improved its
overall score from 513 to 537,
with a score of 525 or above
earning an "A."
"We were very excited to see
Steinhatchee improve a letter
grade to a 'C' for this year,"
Dyal said. "I certainly expect

that this is only the first step in
Steinhatchee re-gaining its high
performing status."
Steinhatchee's score
improved from 433 to 440,
crossing the threshold of 435 to
earn a "C."
"Even though Taylor County
Elementary remained a 'C,' they
did show very good gains in the
percentages of students meeting
high standards in reading, math,
and science," Dyal said.
TCES maintained its score,
dropping only two points from
477 to 475.
"Taylor County High School's
points generated by the FCAT

portion of their school grade are
not as high as last year, but we
anticipate the other areas that
are used to determine the high
school's grades to be up and
will offset this," Dyal said.
"Remember, in high schools,
not only FCAT scoring
percentages are used but,
graduation rate, graduation rate
of at-risk students, acceleration
participation, acceleration
performing, reading readiness,
and math readiness as well.
We are very optimistic that
TCHS will re-gain its 'high
performing' status for the
second straight year."

Graduation standards growing

tougher for incoming freshmen

Incoming freshman at Taylor
County High School, along
with students across the state,
will once again face harder
graduation standards this year,
part of a seven-year program.
The changes were
implemented by the Florida
Legislature in 2010 and will
eventually phase out FCAT
testing at the high school level
for certain subjects, replacing
it with end-of-course (EOC)
Additionally, each year
students will be required to
take more advanced courses

--including Algebra I, Algebra
II, biology and chemistry or
physics--and in some cases pass
the EOC exams, to graduate.
The first students to be
affected were last year's ninth
grade class (the 2014 graduating
All students enrolled in
Algebra I were required to take
an EOC exam, which was 30
percent of their final grade in
the course. (Moreover, students
who took Algebra I as eighth
graders--as offered at Taylor
County Middle School--and
had not yet taken the tenth grade

FCAT math test, were required
to take the EOC exam this
school year.)
Students were also required
to have a geometry credit to
For this year's ninth grade
class (the 2015 graduating
class), students must now also
earn a passing score on the
Algebra I EOC exam to earn
credit for the class.
Students will have to take an
EOC exam in geometry which
will be worth 30 percent of the
final grade for the class.
A biology credit will also be

the commissioner of education,
contingent on funding, to
establish an implementation
schedule for development of
additional EOC exams for such
classes as Algebra II, English/

Breakfast leads to more energy for children

Breakfast has long been
referred to as the most important
meal of the day. It is beneficial
for students heading off to
school to enjoy a meal before
they catch the bus.
Studies have found that
children who eat a healthy
breakfast have higher energy
levels and better learning
abilities than similar students
who do not eat breakfast.
Harvard University researchers
found that those who eat
breakfast are significantly more
attentive in the classroom and
have fewer behavioral and
emotional problems.
Many families find that time is
not in abundance in the morning
when they are getting ready
for school or work. As a result,
breakfast might be skipped in an
effort to get to work or school on
time. But families can skirt the
issue of time with a few on-the-
go foods the whole family can
Individually packaged
yogurts make a healthy and
quick meal for anyone in the

family. A good source of protein
and calcium, yogurt is also
filled with helpful bacteria that
promote digestive health.
Microwaveable convenience
foods come in various shapes
and sizes. Choose the healthiest
options among them, such as
whole-wheat or multigrain
waffles or pancakes. These
foods are easy to heat and eat
Keep a container of fresh
fruit salad in the refrigerator. A
bowl of mixed fruit is refreshing
and healthy.
Whole grain granola bars
that feature fruit and nuts can
be a quick meal and a satisfying
Smoothies made from fruit
and yogurt are fast and can be
stored in portable cups to take in
the car on the way to school.
The cereal aisle at the
local grocery store is filled
with healthy breakfast options.
Cereal manufacturers maintain
that they are reducing the sugar
and boosting the fiber content of
popular brands. It doesn't take

long to enjoy a bowl of cereal,
even one topped with banana
slices or a few strawberries.
Whip up a fast egg sandwich.
Saute egg whites in a frying pan
and place between two slices of
toasted whole wheat bread.
Make a batch of low-fat,
high-fiber muffins over the
weekend. Grabbing a muffin and
a banana is an easy breakfast.
Instant oatmeal is available
in a number of flavors and
is a very healthy and filling
breakfast option.
Create parfaits with layers of
vanilla yogurt, fruit and granola.
Use a sandwich or panini
maker to create homemade
breakfast tarts. Fill bread or
pitas with fresh fruit or peanut
butter and use the cooker to seal
them shut.
For families who simply can't
get in the breakfast swing of
things, many schools participate
in breakfast programs. If
children are routinely missing
breakfast at home, find out
how to enroll them in breakfast
served at school.

The cereal aisle at the grocery store provides healthy breakfast options.

that may hinder their ability to read and learn. And only 5%
of these problems are detected by school vision screenings.
Screenings often give parents a false sense of security.

Students may become ineligible for sports,

dances, trips for violating new dress code

Continued from page 2
The driving force behind
the uniform code of dress was
recently passed legislation,
Superintendent of Schools Paul
Dyal said.
"These are the same standards

we have been in discussions
about for the past several years.
The School Advisory Councils
(SAC) at each school support
this, as do the administrators.
It will also make sure we are
in compliance with Senate Bill
228," he said.
Dyal reminded parents and

students that "failure to follow
the dress code policy will require
that students be given verbal
warnings for the first offense;
for the second offense, students
will be ineligible to participate
in any extracurricular activity
--not just sports, but clubs,
dances, field trips, etc."
