Now, the community is
rallying around Walker and his
family in the wake of the sudden
death of his daughter, Erin

28th birthday Saturday, died
in an early morning car crash
Sunday, Sept. 4.
Three other individuals in the
vehicle were also injured and
two remain in serious condition

The truck, located with peanuts, slowed to cross the big bridge
and Ella Mae Jones saw her chance.
She crawled up into the back and was on her way.
The driver was unaware she was there until a worker spied her.
"He yelled out 'Hey, you got a woman back here' and I jumped
off the truck," Jones recalls in remarkable detail-considering that
the incident happened nearly nine decades ago.
But the story comes alive with Jones' telling and you can almost
see the young woman running off to embrace a new life, one far
from the sharecropper's farm where she grew up.
That life now spans 105 years and it takes only a little
encouragement to get Jones recounting tales from more than a
century of memories.
From the back of that peanut truck, Jones made her way to Cario,
Ga., then Tallahassee and Havana before eventually settling in
"I picked peanuts and made some money. A flour sack was my
suitcase. My younger sister Jewel was living here in Perry. I came
to visit and ended up staying," Jones said.

Gulf of Mexico on Thursday,
strengthening to a minor
tropical storm by Friday. The
storm stalled off the coast of
Louisiana for much of Saturday
and boasted maximum sustained
winds of 45 mph when it finally
made landfall Sunday.
Once over land, Lee was
downgraded to a tropical
depression and began
interacting with an upper-level
trough which pushed the storm
to the northeast. It was declared
sub-tropical Monday morning,
although its effects were still
being felt here.
The highest wind gust
recorded at the airport was 36
mph with sustained winds of 22
mph around 2 p.m. Monday.
In the wake of Lee, cool dry
air is expected to move into
the area from the northwest,
dropping temperatures to
potentially record lows.
The low today (Wednesday)
was forecast today to be 60

is expected to continue with
tonight's low at 59 and a high

Senior citizen irate over
her power being cut off
Last Monday was a very hot
day, too hot to be outside. No
* .,* storm was brewing and no wind
was blowing. I had just finished
mowing my lawn and was dusty
and tired. I took a quick shower
to relax and all of a sudden, the
air conditioner was off. I then
took a quick look to check the
meter box--no electricity.
I thought possibly a line was
down somewhere and waited
several minutes to see if the
power would come back on. I
checked with all my neighbors
and they had power. I proceeded
to then call Progress Energy's
number, and got a recorded
message saying someone would
be with me soon. I held the
phone to my ear for 30 minutes,
then another 15, and then almost
two hours passed. Finally, after
a long wait (it was almost 6
p.m.), a lady named Cynthia
asked, "What can I do for you?"
I said, "Finally, a human
speaking." I told her I had no
power but that all my neighbors
She said, "Orders were to cut
your power off."
And I said, "Now why
would you do that? The power
company is paid automatically
through the bank."
She said, "Yes, you don't owe
but we had orders to cut your
power off." She said letters had
been sent of what they would
do. I told her I never received
any. She gave a Jacksonville
address. I told her I had written
many times requesting mail
and statements to be sent to the
Perry address, where I live.
My calls and written
information were totally
ignored. It's Tuesday and I
cannot stay in a my house it's
Late in the afternoon, my
.power was restored on Tuesday.
I was doing laundry when I
remembered to check on my
freezer. All my food was ruined.
We need to have better
communication with Progress
Energy. This should have never
happened. I was home. The
person should have had the
decency to at least let me know
what was going on.
I am a senior citizen and try to
get along with everyone,
I do not deserve this.

becomes the topic and you think of your
friends, like Walt.
Walt, to be sure, wasn't a juvenile
delinquent. He was a fine Christian
,:young man with musical talents which
were extraordinary. He was well
known and well liked throughout our
community--by his peers and also their
Because of Walt, I could go almost
anywhere. If I asked for permission to
go to late movie, the easy answer was
"no." If I said Walt had permission to
drive us to a late movie, the answer was,
"Well, okay." If I wanted to go anywhere,
all I had to do was drop his name.
"I just feel better with a young man
around in case there's car trouble or any
other problem," my mother would say in
her lilting Southern voice.
"What they don't know," Bettylin said
to me in the quiet confidence of her
bedroom, "is if anything did happen,
Walt would be the first to run. And he'd
run the fastest."
It was true.
But he was our ticket out, and that was
valuable. Plus, he was so much fun.
In Walt's aquamarine mini-station
wagon, we covered our county like white
on rice, participating in harmless pranks
which probably brought more smiles
One of the larger banks in our town had
a lawn display of seasonally decorated
letters which they spotlighted each year.
The letters stood three feet, each with its
own support system.

holiday, we spent great hours in planning
and implementation as we spelled out
ridiculous phrases like CHERRY STIRS
or MISTY MARCHES. Letters had to be

dedicate to more meaningful work.
To afford gas' money, Walt made
deliveries for a local florist and therefore
knew too much information about
everybody's business. When the mayor,
who was known for chasing women, sent
flowers to someone who happened not
to be his wife, we spent a considerable
amount of time circling area hotel
parking lots looking for his car.
And finding him.
He never looked pleased.
But it provided great entertainment on
otherwise boring weekend nights.
When there were tent revivals, we
went in the dark of the night, slinking
toward the tent and blending into the
background as we listened to people
speaking in tongues while the calliope-
like organ played on and generously
sized women belted out gospel favorites.
It seemed other-wordly and frightening
and wonderful all at the same time.
One night when we got tired of going
around the Dairy Dream 46 times,
looking for someone new and interesting,
we decided the city park fountain would
be beautiful in cascading bubbles. We
combined all our pennies to buy 99 cents
worth of pink, Little Debbie dishwashing
liquid from the Jiffy Store. Then we
clandestinely added it to the fountain.
Instead of glorious bubbles, the
dishwashing liquid burned up the motor
to the fountain...but that's another story
Walt was a Scanner Aficionado and,
from his delivery career, knew every dim
road in the area. We traveled them all
at break-neck speed, arriving at fires,
wrecks and domestic disputes often
before the authorities. The domestic
disputes were especially entertaining,
from our perspective, which was both
juvenile and delinquent.
To further endear us all to the local
authorities, Walt could perfectly imitate
a siren's scream, sticking his head out
the window, and for the longest time,
he convinced many in town that he was
acting in an official capacity. While he
snaked his way through lines of simple
gawkers, we were commanded to hit the
floorboard in his back seat, so as not to
And we did.
We followed him around like lemmings
going over a cliff.
But he always stopped at the edge, and
we had faith in that.
I suppose I could miss him for that
trustworthy characteristic, but mostly I
just want to ride around really fast, with
the windows down, in a Datsun mini-
station wagon, throwing caution (and
anything else in the floorboard) to the
wind, listening to the Doobie Brothers or
the Allman Brothers at top volume.
Playing Spades until 1 a.m. on summer
nights, eating too many brownies.
Investigating the murder up the street
which had to do with the Mayor Chasing

On Aug. 30, dressed in their Red Hat "best"
with "red hatitude," the Old Town Red Hat
Chicks went Italian for lunch at the ABC Pizza
Restaurant in Chiefland. We found the food and
service exceptional. Our waitress took special
care of us.
Almost everyone filled themselves on a
multitude of different pizzas and salad at the
pizza bar, although a few ordered from the menu.
We picked up another lady to join our group
that was a patron dining with her husband. We
had a few ladies missing for one reason or
another, and pray that everyone is okay! We
miss you ladies.
Our group of Red Hats recently lost Juanita
Frow, a longtime member, who moved farther
south in Florida.
We hope she gets in with another Red Hat
group down there.
Old Town's Red Hat Chicks marked the month of August by traveling to Chiefland
for an Italian meal and fellowship.

earning Head Coach
Steve Price his first victory at
the Bulldog helm and giving

Beau Johnson his first shut-out.
Grambling completed 11 of
17 passes for 163 yards and 3
touchdowns and rushed 10 times
for 55 yards and another TD to
spark the Taylor County offense.
Junior tailback Jacques
Freeman (who had 30 carries for
143 yards last season as a back-

eclipsed his entire 2010 rushing
total in just one game, as he
gained 146 yards on 13 carries
to help the Bulldogs pile up 277
rushing yards on 40 attempts.
One week after struggling
against defending state
champions Ocala Trinity
Catholic in a preseason game,
the Bulldogs exploded for 461
yards of offense and 4 TD's
while holding the Bears to just
178 yards and no points.
"As long as our defense plays
that well, we will be in every
game this season. I felt our
interior defense played very
well except for just a couple
plays, including the one long

Senior kicker Brian Wilder

up big when we needed them to.
Our secondary bounced back in

Late in the first quarter, Dixie
County's biggest lineman was
ejected when he took several
swings at Bulldog offensive
lineman Andrew McBride,
whose helmet was ripped off
during the play.
"That kid was a good player
and looked to be their best
lineman. He had won several
battles with McBride earlier,
but McBride whipped him on
that play. I was proud of how
Andrew handled it, because we
couldn't afford to lose him to an
ejection. We just don't have a lot
of depth on the line," Price said.
Grambling capped the drive
with two straight option keepers

acrobatic interception (and
returned it 14 yards) two plays
later to set up Grambling's
8-yard fade pass to Strawter for
a touchdown with 9.6 seconds

Taylor County's defense set
the tone for the second half

nice return and a personal foul
