Brothers charged in shooting


Two brothers were charged
with attempted murder Monday
for a shooting incident that left a
bullet lodged in the lower jaw of
a 24-year-old Perry man.
Vearl Flanders Jr., 28, and
Jermaine Flanders, 26, are both
being held on $500,000 bonds
at the Taylor County Jail.
The victim was to undergo
surgery Tuesday to remove the
projectile lodged just below his


ear, Perry Police Department
(PPD) Capt. Jamie Cruse said.
The shooting happened early
Wednesday, Aug. 24. Officers
were dispatched to the area
of Dundee and Wilder streets
around 2 a.m. with the report of
shots fired.
"Officers searched the area
and found a black male who had
been shot in the face and hip.
He was not incapacitated and


had wandered around the area.
Several individuals in the area
directed officers to where the
man was. He was still conscious.
The one bullet traveled from
just below his lip to below his
ear; the second bullet grazed his
hip," Cruse said.
Witness statements and
subsequent interviews with the
victim led investigators to the
Flanders brothers. They were


arrested Monday afternoon at a
residence off Faulkner Street.
"The details around the
incident are unknown, but we
had enough intent to charge both
men with attempted murder,"
Cruse said.
The brothers-who each have
felony convictions and served
time with the Department of
Corrections--were also charged
with possession of a firearm by


a convicted felon.
Det. Sgt. Gene Franklin is the
lead investigator in the case.

Gulf launches put $10 million in economy


The results from a year-
long study of Taylor County's
Gulf access points have been
released, showing an estimated
28,000 boat trips are launched in
the county each year, injecting
some $10 million into the local
economy annually.
The study, conducted by the
Florida Sea Grant College Fund,
surveyed local residents as well
as those utilizing boat ramps
and launches, and counted users
at those sites periodically from
November 2009 to September
2010.
The purpose of the study
was to provide local and state
officials "science-backed


information" to -help guide
future decisions regarding
public Gulf access in the county
by determining which access
points receive the most users
and why, where those users live
and what activities they enjoy
here, and gauge public support
for expanding access options
and improving existing ones.
As part of the study, Taylor
County's 12 primary boat ramps
were visited 11 times between
November 2009 and September
2010 (this predated the opening
of the new Steinhatchee public
boat ramp at the former Ideal
Marina site).
According to the study, the


five busiest sites in the county
are Keaton Beach (public
boat ramp and Keaton Beach
Marina) with 37 percent of total
users, Steinhatchee (Gulfstream
Marina, River Haven Marina
and Jena boat ramp) with
21.4 percent, Econfina River
State Park landing with 18.1
percent, Aucilla River boat
ramp (Mandalay Road) with
7.4 percent, and Spring Warrior
boat ramp with 5.3 percent.
Of those vehicles observed at
ramps, only 14.3 percent were
county residents while 85.7
percent were from outside the
county.
Among visitors surveyed,


$12,500 donation
Buckeye Site Manager Howard Drew presented Boys & Girls Club Executive Director
Lisa English with a check for $12,500 last week to support the club's year-round
educational enrichment, physical fitness, health and life skills, arts and character
development programs. The club serves 500 Taylor County youth at three facilities
located at Veterans Park, Jerkins Community Center and Steinhatchee School. Also
present for the check presentation were Boys & Girls President and Buckeye Electrical
and Instrument Team Development Manager Dan Mills (left) and club junior staff
members Mahogany Mango and Jharquise Simmons.


slightly more than half were day
trippers, with 30 percent staying
either two or three days and 17
percent staying four days or
more.
Important to local businesses,
the survey showed visitors made
85 percent of the purchases for
their trips inside the county with
the average day trip costing
$138 ,and the average overnight
trip $377.
Using multipliers, the study
reports the impact to the local
economy includes 158 jobs
along with an annual $10
million boost.
With parking often a concern
from those residents who live


near ramps, the study noted
that Keaton Beach on average
exceeded its parking capacity
with 138 percent reached,
while Steinhatchee was right at
capacity with 99.8 percent.
According to the surveys,
inadequate parking was the
number one reason given why
boaters avoid certain locations.
The county is currently
redesigning the planned parking
lot at the Keaton Beach Coastal
Park, which is adjacent to
the public boat ramp and is
expected to support overflow
parking. The project has

Bembry, Dean


will meet here



Tuesday, Sept. 6

Senator Charles Dean announced this week that he and
Representative Leonard Bembry will hold their Taylor County
Legislative Delegation meeting Tuesday, Sept. 6.
The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. in the county commission
boardroom in the Taylor County Courthouse Annex on Green
Street.
The meeting will provide a forum by which local residents and
elected officials can approach the delegation with their thoughts
and concerns.
"This legislative delegation meeting is important to me and
Representative Bembry and we believe it is of significant importance
to the residents of Taylor County," Dean said.
"This meeting gives residents an opportunity to meet with and
speak one-on-one with their legislative members. These meetings
are an important part of the process by which our government
operates and I invite everyone in Taylor County to attend this
meeting."
If any member of the public would like to address the delegation,
contact Travis Hart in Dean's office at 850-487-5017 to be placed
on the agenda, or simply sign in on the day of the delegation
hearing.
Dean was first elected to the Senate in 2007 after serving six years
in the House of Representatives. He also served as the majority

Dog wash, donations



raise $900 for Liberty


Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Helping
Hands of the Shelter, I would
like to thank the community
for their overwhelming support
and concern for little Liberty,
the abused pup we took into our
care.
Since her broken leg required
orthopedic surgery, she became
a "special needs" dog and we


decided to try to raise funds for
her medical expenses.
We had donation jars stationed
around town, sponsored a dog
wash at Dr. Tom Fletcher's
veterinary clinic (which was a
ton of fun for the group!), sold
baked goods and hot dogs, and
people also sent donations by
mail. Helping Hands was more
than delighted to raise more

raise money for Liberty.


than $900 toward her care.
We would like to especially
thank Dr. Fletcher for allowing
us to use his clinic facilities
for the dog wash, as well as
Yarbrough Tire, Dr. Miles
Owens, Perry Auction house,
Perry Animal Hospital,
Pouncey's Restaurant and
Joyce's Downtown Cafe for'
displaying donation jars for
Libby's care.
A special thanks to Dr.
Fletcher's staff for their loving
care during Libby's surgery
and aftercare at Perry Animal
Hospital.
Libby is now searching for her
forever home. She is the most
loving little girl; she would love
to have someone who will allow
her to be a house pet, take her
for rides, has time to do some
physical therapy,'and be adored
forever in return,
It is so encouraging to know
that despite hard economic
times and unrest everywhere, it
seems that there are still folks
who will open their wallets and
hearts to a hurting little creature.
God will bless you for it.

Letters to the Editor .


Schools were made for students


Dear Editor:
In response to the letter,
"Parent upset over school lunch
policy," Wednesday, Aug. 17, I
agree with David Leggett and
his outrage of how our children
are fed if there is no money to
pay for their lunch.
I have been a minister to
youth and young adults for
many years.'If the people who
make these decisions could see
what I see, I am sure it would be
an eye opener. I have counseled
with quite a few students in
Taylor County.
A student who is penalized,
singled-out, because their
parents didn't have the money
to give them for lunch, is
squeezed between a rock and
a hard place. These are tough


years for adolescents. We know
that mom and dad are struggling
financially so we don't try to
add more to their burden--after
all, we are a family, and yet we
don't want our classmates to
see us eating the lunch of the
underprivileged.
Solution: Skip lunch and
go withoutt; carrying a weight
that no child should have to
carry. They are at school to be
educated, and it is a long day
without lunch or dwelling all
morning on the thought of the
ridicule from another classmate
if you eat the peanut butter
sandwich. These are heavy
distractions for anyone trying
to focus on their studies. For
all we know, their school lunch
may be the only meal they have


for the day.
David Leggett referred to this
treatment toward our children
"worse" than how inmates are
treated.This caught my attention
since I am a prison minister, and
he is correct. Aren't our children
more precious than those who
are doing time for their crimes?
Or are,,we:, getting our children
up for what we believe is their
future?
Taylor County School
District, I am very disappointed.
If this is your policy to feed the
students in this manner, then it's
time for a policy change. This
treatment is unacceptable.
The school was made for the
students, not the students for the


school.


Rev. Rinda Denson '


TCHS says 'thank you' for luncheon


Dear Editor:
We would like to send out
a sincere thank you to the
parents, students and volunteers
who treated Taylor County
High School teachers and
staff to a luncheon buffet that
would rival any of our local
restaurants.
We would like to say a special


thank you to Shelly Blanco,
Nancy Cribbs, Libby Denmark,
Bobby Stefanelli, Gail Tuten,
Kim Albritton, Sarah Meade,
Karen Lee, Jessica Walker,
Lindy Hornbuckle, Anna
Strickland, Kathy Wilder, Ellie

Resident responds to years-old letter


Dear Editor:
A few years back, there was
a letter to the editor in your
newspaper from a gentleman
from "up north."
He and his wife were living
in Leisure Retreats. He had

County people and slow pace of

through one summer here, he
was ready to go back north. He

abate for weeks, the humidity,
and the bugs.
If I remember correctly, he
said something to the effect that
he wouldn't miss us.
At the time, as a Taylor
County native, I felt compelled
to write the following poem. I
tucked it away and forgot about
it until today, when I came
across it again. I hope you get a
chuckle out of it.
Ode to the Sandhills
Heat and humidity are my
friends.
Hurricanes make just a slight
wind.
Ninety-degrees blows a cool
breeze,
Love bugs can go anywhere
they please.
Yellow flies, mosquitos and
gnats,
Keep away the actual pests.
Taylor County welcomes all,
Many stay, but many more
fall.
If you can't stand the heat,
Just quit your nit-picking,
And get yourself out of our
kitchen.
You say Minnesota is looking
fine,
So make your way back down
the line.
There ain't no need to fume

School's in
session: are
you saving
Box Tops?
There are 8,197 reasons why
Taylor County Elementary
School .(TCES) is starting the
new school year off by asking
students to collect Box Tops.
Each of those reasons
represents a dollar that the
school has earned from this
venture.
"I'm in the process of getting
information to parents
informing them of Box Tops
for Education, but this
fundraiser is very important to
our school and I urge our
students (and their families) to
begin now--if they haven't
already--looking for labels on
boxes of cereal and other food
products," said Angela
Watford, who coordinates the
fundraiser for TCES.
"Last year, TCES earned
$1,914 which was an increase
over the previous year's total of
$1,357. Since 2002, TCES has
received $8,197 from this
program. The first deadline is
Oct. 14, and the second is April
5. The top three students from
each grade will be rewarded a
pizza party as well as free play
time, plus their famous picture
will be printed in the
newspaper."

Heat and bugs or snow?


RESIDENT
Continued from page 2
and pout
The way you got in is the
same way out.
I'd say I'm sorry to see you
go,
But that would really not be
so.


We did just fine before you
came
And when you're gone, we'll
be the same.
I'd rather have the heat and
bugs
And a fishing pole and a can
of grubs
Than all the snow you've go
up north.


If you want to leave, get in
your Porche.
So I would like to make this
clear:
We don't really need you
here!
I believe this is very true to
most Taylor County natives'
sentiment.

IN GOD WE TR ST
In God we trust. There's a motto as Ameri s biscuits and gravy.
We do have a number of mis-guided people i s country today who think
that they are too intelligent and sophisti d to trust anything other
than their own wits and cunning.
I'm referring to those individuals who would remove The Motto from our
coins, government buildings, and any other disp ay. The same ones who would
deny the school children the right to morning prayer or our reference to God
in the pledge of allegiance. In one of my previous writings I recall stating
that, in my opinion, an atheist is like a goljfish that says he doesn't believe
in water. I know that deep within each off resides a Divine Spirit that only
waits for our awakening to be expressedT'Atheists are like spoiled children
who, when they don't get their way, pout and yell "I hate you Mother"!
I'm here to say that in the critical days that are rapidly approaching, we
all need the guidance and assistance Of Great Spirit. To survive the radical
changes, that are going to be taking place in all our lives, we desperately
need to learn to listen to the voice of Spirit within our own hearts.
To think that we will get through this impending transition without learning
to trust Spirit is folly. Just in the last few days we've had earth quakes in
Colorado, and Virginia. The one in Virginia was felt all the way into Canada. Our
country, in the last year, has experienced almost everything but a volcanic
eruption, and don't be surprised if that is next. We've had terrible forest
fires, flooding, extreme drought, and record heat. Even as I write this Major
Hurricane "Irene" is churning her way through the Bahamas, and threatens
to devastate the eastern seaboard of the United States. Millions of
Americans will be affected. Too many people of the world have denied their
relationship with Mother Nature, and she is tired of their greedy, selfish
ways. The indigenous peoples have attempted to maintain their traditional
relationship with the natural world, and can set an example for those who
would survive the coming transfiguration. The existences of violence and
blood shed in the middle east and other locations in the world are too
numerous to list. I wish I knew a way to reach all the innocent, peace loving
people here and around the world to tell them that there is nothing to fear
if they just learn to live their lives in total Honesty. This is the time to come
together with family, friends, and neighbors who are of like mind. Share what
we have and support each other. I don't neto say "Love One Another".
Jesus already told us all that long ago, and des, love is an over worked,
and mis-used word today. When speaking of times that we are moving
into, Jesus said, "Ten thousand may fall atth de, but ye shall be lifted up":
I believe that with all my heart. I say, "In God Trust".
Peace, Love, and Harmony
John D. Alexander

stand, as well as what areas need
improvement heading into the
regular season.
After a 47-7 "Kickoff
Classic" loss to defending Class
2B state champion Ocala Trinity
Catholic, some may think Taylor
County has a lot of work to do.
However, Bulldogs' Head Coach
Steve Price believes his team
is much better than what the
lopsided final score indicates.
"It is hard to beat anyone
when you turn the ball over four
times and have a bad punt snap


in the first quarter. In fact, I can't
remember a game that I have
played in, coached in or even
seen where one team fumbled
it five times in a quarter," Price
said.
"I'm a little at a loss, because
we have done a pretty good
job stressing ball security all
summer, and we've not seen
anything like this at practice.
Holding onto the ball was not
one of the things we felt we had
to worry about," Price added.
Trinity Catholic took
advantage of 8 Bulldog fumbles
(5 lost) and several bad punt
snaps to score 26 of their 47
points in the pre-season rout
Friday night at Dorsett Stadium.
The Bulldogs fumbled on their
first three possessions (and lost
3 of 5 fumbles in the first quarter
alone) to help Ocala build a 17-7
lead. A sixth Bulldog fumble
deep in their own territory in the
second quarter allowed Trinity
to score another easy touchdown
and jump out to a 31-7 lead at
the half before cruising to their
15th straight victory.
"It was definitely
disappointing, because we are a
better team than what we showed
Friday night. These players have
worked very hard, and when


you do that, you really want to
show people how hard you've
worked, but turnovers ruined it.
You can't win football games
that way. That is perhaps the
most frustrating thing, because
I really would have liked to see
how this game would've went
if you take away those early
turnovers," Price said Monday.
Those turnovers contributed
to terrible field position for the
Bulldogs all night, as Taylor
County started beyond their own
20 yard line only twice all night,
while Trinity started over half
of their possessions (8) on the
Bulldogs' side of the field.
"During our Sunday meeting
we watched the film and saw


that physically we were as good
as they were, we are just as good
on the interior line and we had
just as talented athletes as Ocala.
It was one of those nights where
very few things went our way.
We just didn't hold onto the
football.
"But, this loss will not define
our football team. We will not
dwell on it. We will watch
the film, address a few things
we saw in practice early this
week and after that we won't
mention it again. Everything
that happened to us was self-
inflicted. These are things we
can fix. It hurts our momentum,
but has no impact on our season
overall, other than it will cause
us to focus and practice hard this
week," Price added.
"Trinity is definitely one of
the stronger football teams we
will face all year, including the
playoffs. They are experienced,
accomplished and very polished.
They had 8 players back off a
state championship defense and
we did some good things against
them," Price said. "We moved it
down the field well on our first
possession, and if we don't turn
the ball over, we are looking at a
different game."
Taylor's offense started every


possession deep in their own
territory (average starting field
position was the Bulldogs' own
18 yard line) while Ocala's
average start was the Bulldogs'
41. Trinity's worst starting field
position was their own 31 yard
line, while the Bulldogs began
drives inside their own 10-yard
line three times.
Taylor County had some
success running the ball (32
carries, 79 yards) behind their
veteran offensive line, but
fumbles and bad snaps resulted
in negative yardage and a net of
only 36 offensive rushing yards.
The Bulldogs finished with 179
total offensive yards, while
Trinity finished with 331 total
yards.
Bulldog players came out
fired up and drew several
"ooohhhs" and "aaaahhs" from
the packed Dorsett Stadium
crowd with some bone-jarring
hits that knocked helmets off of
at least four Celtic players in the
first half.
"I am very excited about what
our defense did. It bodes well
for the rest of our season. We did
some good things -- especially
how our defense performed
against the run. We stopped
them and they had several three-
and-outs. I believe our defense
played well. That was an area
we were concerned about after
the spring game, but despite the
final score of this game, I am
really encouraged about how
good our defense can be this
season," Price said.
"Tyler Evans, Calub Murphy,
Connor Bishop and Daniel
Wentworth were standouts on
defense. KJ Johnson showed
that lie is a special player. That
was a very good football team
and they still couldn't block him
with 2 or 3 guys."
The aggressive hitting seemed
to set the tone early, as Taylor
took the opening possession and
drove down to the Ocala 44.
QB Eli Grambling (6 of
15, 143 yards, 1 TD) threw a
short pass to James Strawter (3
catches, 37 yards), runningback
Jacques Freeman (11 carries, 35
yards) ripped off a 10-yard gain
and Moral Stephens (3 catches,
37 yards) hauled in a 16-yard
pass before Grambling ran for 8.
"Moral Stephens had several
very good catches and ran really
well after the catch," Price said
of the sophomore wide receiver.
The drive ended when Jalan
Jackson lost a fumble on a
handoff from Grambling. But,
the Bulldog defense came
up big, as Brion Scott, Justin
Becerra and Jackson led the way
in forcing a punt after just three
plays.
However, Jackson fumbled


Bulldog running back Jalan Jackson (4) runs for daylight with some helpful blocking
from Calub Murphy (32) and Darick Ward (56).

TCHS quarterback Eli Gra
here Friday night. Justin Mc
again on the punt return,
and Trinity recovered at the
Bulldogs' 11-yard line.
Wentworth, Murphy, Johnson
and the entire Bulldogs'
defensive line stuffed much-
hyped Celtic runningback
Austin McClellan for no gain
on two straight carries, forcing
Trinity to settle for a 29-yard
field goal with 7:35 remaining
in the first quarter.
Grambling completed a
screen pass to Strawter, who
picked up a great block from
Freeman to break loose for 21
yards. Grambling (12 carries,
23 yards) bulled over a defender
for 6 yards, but the drive fizzled
as Freeman was dropped for a
loss and KJ Johnson (2 carries, 5
yards) was stopped for a 3-yard
gain despite bulldozing over a
defender who had to be helped
off the field.
On 4th and 2 from midfield,
the punt snap sailed high and
Wentworth was forced to fall on
it for a 28-yard loss.
One play later, Trinity QB
Ried Carlton (6 of 11, 129 yards,
3 TDs) hit Diquan Jefferson for a
21-yard TD pass. With 5:44 left
in the first quarter, Ocala had a
10-0 lead -- despite having only
two plays with positive yardage.
Trinity's defense stuffed
Freeman for a loss, knocked
down a screen pass and forced a
punt, which Wentworth boomed
36 yards despite a low snap.
Raydon Parker, Murphy,
Justin Becerra and Johnson
stopped McClellan again to
force an Ocala punt and the
Bulldogs quickly got back in
the game when Grambling
scrambled away from pressure
and lofted a pass over the Trinity
defense.
Jackson out-jumped his
defender for the ball and raced
80 yards for a touchdown to pull
the Bulldogs within 10-7 with
3:26 left in the first quarter.
Evans knocked the helmet
off of a Celtic player on the
kickoff return. Murphy, Parker
and Ka'Varius Franklin made
big stops on defense to force a
punt. Jackson recovered his own
fumble on the return, but the
Bulldogs gave the ball right back
two plays later when Grambling
dropped back to pass and had
the ball slip out of his hand as he
cocked his arm to throw.
Ocala capitalized again on the
next play, as Carlton hooked up
with Jefferson (4 catches, 112
yards, 3 TDs) again on another
sideline pass to give Trinity a
17-7 lead with 43 seconds left in
the first quarter.


mbling (15) drops back to pa
:Guire (68) and Jacob Barr (67
Grambling connected with
Stephens for a 10-yard pass
completion, but overthrew
Chance Rodgers on a 3rd down
play before Wentworth blasted a
41-yard punt and Wil Tuten and
Becerra pummeled the Celtic
returned.
Four plays later Carlton and
Jefferson connected on the same
pass play for a 30-yard TD pass
and a 24-7 lead for the Celtics.
Led by Murphy, Becerra,
Darick Ward, Johnson, Tuten,
Jackson and Parker, the Bulldog
defense held Trinity for the rest
of the half until the Bulldogs
turned the ball over on their own
11 when Jake Smyrnios fumbled
trying to get an extra yard on 1st
dowp from his own 7.
CIltics fullback Demonta
Bltnt ran in from 1 yard out
three plays later to give Trinity
a 31-7 lead.
Ocala was driving for
another touchdown (set up by
another long 37-yard pass play
to' Jefferson) when a big hit
on McClellan jarred the ball
loose and Alexander Flowers
recovered for Taylor.
Nice blocking by Justin
McGuire and the Bulldogs
offensive line cleared the way
for Freeman and Grambling
to run for 13 and 14 yards on
back-to-back carries before
Grambling tucked the ball and
ran for no gain, then missed high
on a slant pass to Strawter just
before the half ended.
"Our offensive line performed
well most of the night, except
when they blitzed. We just didn't
have enough reps in practice
against it," Price said.
Trinity continued to dominate
in the second half, taking the
kickoff and driving 61 yards in
14 plays before being stopped
at the Bulldogs' 4 yard line by
Ward, Johnson, Becerra, Evans
and Murphy. Parker, Johnson,
Wentworth, Murphy, Becerra,
Connor Bishop and Smyrnios
made big hits earlier in the drive.
As Ocala's defense adjusted
to 'take away the Bulldogs'
screen pass plays, Taylor went
.to the running game behind
the blocking of Taylor Bethea,
McGuire, Aaron Crews, Blaine
Brenner and Andrew McBride,
but a sack, incompletion and
another low punt snap gave the
Celtics the ball at the Bulldogs'


ass against Trinity Catholic
') provide protection.
47.
Blunt broke free on a trap play
up the middle on the next play to
give Ocala a 37-7 lead with 2:23
left in the third quarter.
A fumbled snap recovered by
Grambling and a dropped pass
forced another Taylor punt and
Percy Jacobs made the hit of
the night flattening Blunt for
a two-yard loss before Alladin
Andrews fumbled and recovered
on a punt return.
Wentworth took over at QB,
as both teams pulled their first
string players in the final quarter
(played with a running clock).
Another bad punt snap sailed
over Wentworth's head on 4th
and 11 from the 15 and the
Celtics recovered the ball for
a safety and a 40-7 lead. Ocala
capped the scoring on the next
driye with a one:yard TD run.
Price admitted it was "back to
the drawing board" in practice
this week after nearly every
punt snap rolled back or sailed
high.
"We have two very good
long snappers on our team,
but one (Becerra) broke his
thumb last week and the other
(Darick Ward) tore a tendon in
his middle finger on the first
drive and performed as well as
he could the rest of the night,"
Price said.
Taylor County knows it must
eliminate turnovers, work on
special teams and improve its
pass defense before traveling
to Cross City this Friday for
the season-opener against Dixie
County.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its Intent to
Issue an environmental resource
permit (Flle No. 238398-005) to Brian
Schrelber, Secretary,
A Mining Group, LLC, Post Office Box
1829, Lake City, Florida, 32056, to
expand the surface water
management system for a previously-
permitted sand and limestone mine
from 319 to 749.0 acres. The
proposed mining, as modified, will
result In the excavation of three lakes
totaling 519.2 acres (Lake No. 1:
146.2 acres, Lake No. 2: 275.5 acres
and Lake No. 3: 97.5 acres).
The permit modification will add an
additional 1,313 acres of leased
property (Expansion Area) to the
existing 460-acre leased mine. The
original 319-acre surface water
management system will expand by
an additional 430 acres, allowing the
construction of Lake No. 2 north of
the existing mine. The site consists
primarily of upland areas dominated
by stands of loblolly pine planted on
a white sand and silt loam. A large
portion of the uplands has been
recently clear cut by the property
owner, Foley Timber and Land
Corporation. Ground cover within
the clear cut has been heavily
Impacted by mechanical
disturbance.
Previously permitted adverse impacts
to wetlands and other surface waters
within the existing mine will total
approximately 15.94 acres, consisting
of 10.07 acres of mixed forested
wetlands, 3.55 acres of shrubby
herbaceous wetlands, and 2.32
acres of other surface waters.
Adverse Impacts to two larger,
shrubby herbaceous wetlands
totaling 1.59 acres have already
been resolved by Department
Consent Order No. 05-0533, and will
not require mitigation under this
permit. -Mitlgation for the 8.86 acres
of wetlands subject to the mitigation
requirement has been provided by
fhe ) ircihde6'' of:-'* 6-02' shrubby'
herbaceous and forested wetland
credits at the San Pedro Bay
Mitigation Bank In Taylor County.
Dredging and filling Impacts to
wetlands and other surface waters
within the Expansion Area will total
approximately 16.04 acres, consisting
of 9.93 acres of mixed forested
wetlands, 1.50 acres of herbaceous
wetlands and 4.61 acres of other
surface waters. Indirect adverse
Impacts to wetlands total 1.60 acres,
consisting of 1.51 acres of mixed
forested wetlands, 0.06 of an acre of
herbaceous wetlands, and 0.03 of an
acre of other surface waters.
Mitigation for the loss of these
wetland functions will be provided by
the hydrological enhancement of
wetlands within the nearby state-
owned Aucilla Wildlife Management
Area. It Is expected that the
restoration of natural sheet flows
through the construction of low water
crossings and ditch blocks along
Forest Grade 19 will Improve the
hydrological support for
approximately 1,437 acres of
wetlands. In addition, while not
designated as mitigation, the
creation of 47,995 feet of gently
sloped vegetated shorelines around
the reclaimed quarry lakes at the
completion of mining, will provide
additional benefits to wildlife.
The project area Is Isolated by a
system of berms and does not
receive any additional stormwater
flows from outside of the project
boundary. The proposed mining
operation will consist of three
excavation areas and will utilize an
existing rock processing plant, scale
house, maintenance facility, and
access haul roads. There will be no
dewatering associated with the
project. The construction of parking
areas, buildings and processing
facilities has resulted In
approximately 18 acres of Impervious
surfaces, which will be removed at
the end of mine life.


CZS SATEBK
CITIZENS STATE BAN4K


The results of well water testing have
shown that the site can be mined
without adverse effects to regional
groundwater quality. Water quality
will be monitored with a monitoring
well near the processing area. The
maximum mining depth will be
limited to -74 feet National Geodetic
Vertical Datum (NGVD). The bottom
of mine pits will generally be about 85
feet below the land surface, and all
the final shorelines will be
constructed with a 4:1
(horlzontal:vertical) slope. The
postreclamation land cover types will
be pine flatwoods, wetlands, grass
and herbaceous fields, and 519.2
acres of lakes.
The estimated life of the mine Is 50
years. The construction phase of this
permit expires in 20 years. Prior to
that time, the permittee may apply
for a permit extension to accomplish
any remaining mining and
reclamation.
The site Is located on the east side of
County Road 14, one-third of a mile
north of the Intersection of County
Road 14 and U.S. Highway 98, In
Taylor County, Township 4 South,
Range 4 East, Sections 2, 7, 11, 12, 13,
and 14, Class III Waters.
This permit is hereby granted unless a
sufficient petition for on
administrative hearing Is timely filed
under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of
the Florida Statutes as provided
below. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing are set forth
below. Mediation Is not available.
A person whose substantial Interests
are affected by the Department's
action may petition for an
administrative proceeding (hearing)
under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of
the Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the Information set forth
below and must be filed (received by
the clerk) In the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mall
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.
Because the administrative hearing
process Is designed to redetermine
final agency action on the
application, the filing of a petition for
an administrative hearing may result
In a modification of the permit or
even a denial of the application.
Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a person whose
substantial Interests are affected by
the Department's action may also
request an extension of time to file a
petition for an administrative hearing.
The Department may, for good

With so many advertising


mediums dividing the attention of


potential customers, newspapers remain


the most effective source


for reaching consumers.





Why?


Simply put, newspapers reach more


people, more often. Highly portable

with people and stay with them.


That means your business is more likely to

American Legion 291, PAWS host

'Hot dogs for hot doggie' benefit


By Claudia Willard
Special to TACO TIMES
American Legion Post 291
and PAWS of Steinhatchee
sponsored a "Hot Dogs for
Doggie" benefit on Aug. 19.
AL, a mixed breed dog who
had been abandoned at the
American Legion Post, was
reason for the get together.
Everyone enjoyed grilled
hot dogs, coleslaw and baked
beans along with all the fixings:
chili, relish, sauerkraut, onions,
grilled onions and peppers.
Diners were well supplied
with an assortment of desserts.
Donations were plentiful and
will be used to provide AL
with the medical attention he
needs, along with his shots and
neutering.


AL (short for American Legion) has found a forever
home.


Legionnaires provided the
coleslaw, potato salad, baked
beans, desserts and, of course,
the use of their kitchen. PAWS
members cooked and served the
hot dogs.
The benefit could not have
been held without the kind
donations from our local
Maddie's Market. Bountiful
donations from Winn Dixie and


Walmart of Perry also made this
benefit possible. Our thanks to
everyone who joined us and AL
to make this benefit a success.
AL is a very loving fellow
and quite handsome. He has
been bathed and has had his
shots and medical care..and he
has found his "Forever Home."
For more information about
PAWS, call (352) 498-8159.

organization a wealth of clinical
and management expertise in
the field of palliative care, and

yet immensely rewarding task
'of helping patients and their
loved ones find comfort and
peace during the most difficult
of times," said Inzer.
Since opening in 1983, Big
Bend Hospice has cared for


thousands of area patients.
Last year they provided
128,404 total days of patient
care and drove over 1,000,000
miles to support patients in the
eight-county Big Bend region.
Big Bend Hospice care is
delivered by more than 200 full
and part-time staff members
supported by more than 300
volunteers to patients in their
homes and at the Hospice
House.
In addition, 2,800 hospice
families and 600 community


members received bereavement
support through Big Bend
Hospice bereavement support
groups. Taylor County's local
care team consists of a Hospice
physician, an experienced RN,
a family counselor, a home
health aide, board certified
music therapist, a chaplain and
trained volunteers who offer
every patient assistance "to
guide them through life's most
challenging journey."
