Retired sheriff's deputy drowns
A retired sheriff's deputy
drowned while scalloping
off the Taylor County coast
Saturday, Aug. 20.
Lewis Edgar "Ed" Hoss Jr.,
68, of Bradenton died as a result
of "drowning associated with a
possible cardiac event," Taylor
County Sheriff's Office Capt.
Ron Rice said.
Hoss, a family member and a
friend had launched their boat at
the Econfina River. Sometime
later, as they were scalloping,
Hoss was found floating
facedown in the water.
A unit from the sheriff's
office was dispatched to the
boat landing around 2:20 p.m.
Hoss was brought back to shore
where an ambulance waited
at the Econfina River Resort
He was pronounced dead at
the scene, Rice said.
Hoss had a combined service
of 31 years as a deputy with the

Off to a good start
Perry Primary School students rush toward their buses Tuesday afternoon, marking the end of the second day
of the 2011-12 school year. The students were wearing a variety of shades of oranges and blues to meet the
recently implemented uniform code of dress. According to Superintendent of Schools Paul Dyal, the first days of
the new year startedwith a few late buses and several issues with the dress code, but overall the district had a
"very good start."
He* was the second individual
to drown here this scalloping
season. Less than a month ago, a

man died while scalloping off
the coast of Steinhatchee.
Despite some late buses and

The sweetness of those apples lingers
with me still.
The air in Gatlinburg, Tenn., was crisp
and the day was clear. If I hadn't been
15 and generally disagreeable, it would
have been a perfect day.
But my parents--I believed--were out
to sabotage my happiness.
We had taken a trip to the mountains
for a respite from the hot temperatures
which had smothered the Southeast all
summer. In early Fall, there was still
little mercy in sight.
Since I was an only child, vacations
sometimes involved "taking a friend"
but for this extended weekend, it was
just the three of us, and that put me
in the back seat enjoying many of the
sights, but occasionally rolling my eyes
at the parental banter.
lIn Gatlinburg, we enjoyed a walking
tour of the downtown area, eyeing
sidewalk artists, and bushel upon
bushel of fresh apples. Finally, when
my father decided upon the baskets
of apples we should take home, he
announced that he would go for the car.
So he placed three balsa wood baskets
on the steps of an elegant, downtown
church and told us to "sit tight" while
he walked a mile or so to the car.
Mother, in the meantime, saw some
vases she wanted to look at, and darted
to a nearby shop.
That left me on the church steps,
surrounded by apples, looking hopeless
Suddenly, out of nowhere, a drop-
dead gorgeous teenage boy appeared
on the sidewalk below, in rumpled
casual jeans, with swooped hair. If this
was a musical, there would be a grand
score of trumpets and violins right
now, because I could hardly breathe.
He had on a preppy looking twill
shirt, sleeves rolled up, and an air of
confidence which removed him from
60 percent of the male population at
I was pretty sure I was in love.
I remember thinking that I could leave
with him, right then and there, and live
happily ever after.
I had named our children before he
made the first step toward me.
We were going to be fantastically
happy--traveling to Gatlinburg every
Fall to remember our first chance
meeting, skiing in Aspen, seeing the
Eiffel Tower in Paris.
It would be a great wedding, because
he was gorgeous. Everyone would be
jealous. We would be stunning. Our
future would be just grand.

By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Suddenly, I was feeling more
confident and happy, too, that I had
taken this trip with my parents. It was
meant to be.
I considered speaking first but
decided I'd let him do the honors. Then
I could act surprised, pleased, calm,
cool and collected.
He was coming toward me.
I glanced in his, direction.
Our eyes met.
And he said, "Are you selling those
Now that I'm old and cantankerous
and worldly, I could have come up with
a number of noteworthy come-backs
or clever repartee, but instead, I was
just devastated. Speechless, I realized
it appeared that my day's sales on the
church steps might be necessary to
feed my family.
I was horrified.
"I'm just waiting on my parents," I
finally said, which was surely a stupid
thing to say but "stupid" was all I could
come up with at the moment.
Having been given no encouragement,
the beautiful teenage boy said politely,
"Sorry," and moved on. I wanted to
collect my wits and chase after him in
an inconspicuous way but I was unable
to move or think...except, that is, to
think about how stupid I'd been.
My father soon appeared with a spry
gait as he came to collect the wonderful
apples. I, however, just looked
"What's wrong with you?" he asked.
I rolled my eyes, for how could he
"Look at my vase!" my mother said,
walking up to us.
They talked among themselves and
seemed to be enjoying their vacation
In retrospect, it makes me happy that
they enjoyed their time away, and their
Then, however, when I was the center
of the universe, I wondered how two
people who said they loved me dearly
could be so happy while my whole life
was in shambles: the wedding called off
and my ski trip suspended indefinitely.
I might never see the Eiffel Tower.
The scent of apples every Fall leads
many people to the kitchen for pies
and cobblers, cider and salad. Instead,
it takes me back 40 years and 500 miles
to a place where I remember what it
was like to be an awkward 15. And
where I finally realize that you only get
over that kind of humiliation when you
become the parents you once had.

no dough. When he screams and
hollers, then tax him some more,
tax him til he's good and sore.
When he dies, tax his coffin, tax
his grave, tax the sod in which

upon his tomb. Taxes drove me
to my doom. And when he's
gone and buried, do not relax,

Still think it's funny? Here
are a few of the taxes you pay:
accounts receivable tax, building
permit tax, CDL license tax,
cigarette tax, corporate income
tax, dog license tax, excise taxes,
federal income tax, federal
unemployment tax (FUTA),
fishing license tax, food license
tax, fuel permit tax, gasoline
tax (currently 44.75 cents per
gallon), gross receipts tax,
hunting license tax, inheritance

charges, IRS penalties (tax on

medicare tax, personal property

Again I ask, do you still think
this is funny? Not one of these

prosperous in the world. We
had absolutely no national debt,
we had the largest middle class
in the world, and mom stayed

When the kids go back to

If you're going Back to the
Garden, consider these tips:
You can plant your fall
tomatoes but hold off before
adding other cool-weather
plants. September still has
plenty of heat in store.
Cut back leggy perennials
such as impatiens, salvia and
jacobinia. With a little
fertilizer and water, they should
begin to bloom again soon.
Add new color to your
garden, using crotons--which
just look like Fall-- or coleus,
firebush, pineapple sage,
firespike or lion's ear.
Give your lawn a late
summer feeding before August
turns into September. Unless a
soil test indicates a need for
phosphorus, use a low- or no-'
phosphorus fertilizer such as

Get your 504 worth from this
Yes, plant it.
Thick layers of newspaper under mulch will put an absorbent, protective tier between the
mulch and the soil, thus cooling down the garden's environment. As the newspaper breaks
down, you can simply add more layers. If you want to change your flowerbed, just chop up
the layers and till underneath them, or add them to your compost pile.
If you like a natural border around your flowerbeds, your 50-cent newspaper can help
again. Dig a small trench around the bed, 4 to 6 inches deep and wide. Remove all grass or
weeds, then fill the trench with tightly-rolled newspapers, and tap each down until it sits
just below the outside edge of the trench. Then top with a thick layer of mulch and smooth .
the area so the bed slopes to the grass edge. A good watering will settle the bed. Cheap
and easy to replace, this trench can act as a barrier as well as a mow strip. Keep the
area neat by running a hoe along the border to discourage creeping grass.
