Taylor County's first
responder community is
mourning the loss of one of their
own with the death of paramedic
Janie Sites, who was found at
her home early Tuesday.
The Perry Police Department
is handling the death
investigation and is awaiting
results of a post mortem report.
Sites started her career with
Doctors' Memorial in 2001.
While some residents may


remember her work in the
computer field, it was her
work in the medical field that
impacted countless lives.
"She enjoyed her computer
work, but got into the medical
field to help people," Doctors'
Memorial Hospital Emergency
Medical Services (EMS)
paramedic Michael Lundy said.
"Her dedication to helping
others and responding to
emergencies on and off duty


will be truly missed. Janie
was a very caring and giving
individual who always put
others before herself," he said.
Taylor County Fire-Rescue
Lt. Chris Williams related that
Sites was his partner when he
worked part-time at EMS.
"She was a fun-loving
person to be around...she was
compassionate, tared a lot

The 56th annual Florida Forest Festival boasted a variety of attractions, events and personalities, among them
(clockwise) the Parrothead in Perry-dise mascot, the Pride of Taylor Marching Band, the "World's Largest Free Fish
Fry," All American lumberjacks and amateur timbermen.


DMH $400,000 ahead of


projections for first quarter


Through the first quarter of
the its new fiscal year, Doctors'
Memorial Hospital (DMH)
posted solid numbers, ending
the period in the black and
more than $400,000 ahead of
projections.
DMH CEO Richard Huth
presented the latest figures
for the period of June through
August to Taylor County
Commissioners last week.
According to Huth, DMH
budgeted for a net loss of
$377,000 over the three months,
which are traditionally the
hospital's slowest. Instead,
however, DMH reported a net


gain of $28,000 for the period.
Although revenue was below
budget and expenses were over
budget, DMH was helped by a
significant reduction of charity
care and bad debt compared to
the budget. While the hospital
had planned to write off $713
in charity care and $2 million
in bad debt for the three-month
period, those figures were
instead $383,000 and $1.5
million respectively.
The hospital has $500,000 in
cash reserves, which amounts to
about six days of cash on hand,
Huth said.
According to Huth, 39


percent of the hospital's
revenue comes from Medicare
patients, with 19.7 percent from
Medicaid, 20.7 percent from
Blue Cross, 6.5 percent from
other commercial insurances
and 12.5 percent self pay.
Huth said the 27 percent
total from commercial sources
was "really good" for a rural
hospital, which he credited to
the county's industrial base.
During the first quarter, DMH
saw 3,200 emergency room
visits, 4,400 outpatient visits,
6,271 clinic visits, 68 inpatient

Its the


biggest


party of


the year!
By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
Blue skies and mild
temperatures greeted the 56th
annual Florida Forest Festival,
a combination many were
heard to describe as the "perfect
weather" for a festival.
The month-long celebration
of Taylor County's natural
resources, and the industry built
around them, culminated this
past weekend with three days of
festivities.
Thursday evening brought
the annual "fabulous" fireworks
( display at Perry-Foley Airport,
featuring acacophony of sounds
and colors which lit up the night
sky for a full 20 minutes. Those
sitting on the airport's tarmac
had an up-close-and-personal
view of the display, but the
fireworks were visible for a
long distance in every direction.
After a two-year absence, the
festival's Heritage Day Tours
returned to the Forest Capital
State Museum Friday morning
with more than 150 area school
children taking part in a number
of demonstrations, including an
operating spinning wheel and
blacksmith forge, along with
festival stalwart, John the mule.
(Full coverage of the Heritage
Tours can be found on page
B-1.)
The festival moved
downtown Friday evening, for
a series of parades around the
.courthouse square. Up first was
the Strutt Your Mutt dog parade,
which featured more than 30
representatives of "man's best
friend," who barked and wagged
their way into the hearts of the
crowd (for winners and photos,
see page B-6).
Following Strutt Your Mutt
was the annual Kid's Parade,
with youngsters walking and
riding the route dressed in their
"forestry finest," including
several who had their own hand-
made log trucks. Presiding over
the parade were Little King

Judge orders a halt

to drug testing for

welfare recipients

A federal judge ordered the State of Florida to stop enforcing
a new law--which requires welfare recipients to undergo drug
testing--while a lawsuit contesting the law's constitutionality
proceeds.
Passed during this year's legislative session, the law went into
effect July 1 and requires adult welfare recipients to take a drug test
to receive funds from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families
(TANF) Program.
Recipients have to pay upfront for the tests, but those who pass
will be reimbursed. Those who fail will lose their benefits for one
year on the first offense an lree years on the second. Parents who
fail the test will have to designate another adult to receive their
children's benefits.

laps, the drivers parked and
joined the Sock Hop underway
inside Joyce's Main Street Cafe,
where local band Southern
Rain performed a series of
classics. (For more coverage of
Friday night's events, see page

The festival kicked off
Saturday morning with the King

bands, floats, Shriners and even
a mechanical skunk.
Westside Baptist Church's
float, which featured its own
puppet show, took home the
Grand Marshall's Award, and a
$200 cash prize. Taylor County

the Parrotheads in Perry-dise
and their giant red parrot mascot
took home the prize for Most
Humorous.
Each award was accompanied
by a $100 cash prize. (Photos
from the King Tree Parade can
be found on page B-2.)
The action then moved to
Forest Capital State Park for
the continuation of the festival's
"big day."
The World's Largest Free Fish
Fry once again provided plate
after plate of fish, beans and
hushpuppies to the assembled
crowd.
Early estimates have the total
number of plates given away
this year at 4,500.
At Heritage Pavilion,
Ja'Brayla Bell served as


emcee, introducing the day's
entertainment, including local
bands Southern Rain and Alibi,
along with Grammy Award-
winning country singer David
Ball.
Throughout the park, guests
had a multitude of activities
to choose from, including
lumberjack shows, heavy
equipment exhibitions, saw and
loader competitions, the classic
car show (which was the largest
yet), educational exhibits from
the Florida Forest Service,
arts and crafts and
demonstrations at Forest Capital
State Museum. (See photos from
Saturday's events on page A-2.)
Closing out the evening was
local rock band Broken Trust,
with the crowd swelling once
more just before the band took
the stage to send off the 56th
annual Florida Forest Festival
with a bang.

"It is therefore ordered that
the state is hereby enjoined
from requiring plaintiff to

Scriven said in her 37-page
order.


"This order does not address

"In the last few years, she

Partnership), she taught the
homebuyers education class
that was required for first-time
homebuyers.


"When local judges started a
marriage and divorce program,
they asked her to teach the
course. Basically anyone with
kids 18 or under had to go
through the divorce class and
she taught them not to use
their children as weapons
against the other spouse," Olson
said.
"The extension office offers
issues-based programming for
the community and that's just
what she did-she was very
responsive to the community
needs and whatever needed
to be done, she tried to address
it.


"She did a lot of regional
programming in surrounding
counties and was recognized
both on the state and national
level for work done here in
Taylor County.
"But what impressed me most
was the quality of her teaching.
She was an excellent teacher...

to lead a class, she did a great
job preparing and a great job

Horse Liniment
Erases Pain
HIALEAH, FL -An ingredient of-
ten used to treat inflammation in race-
horse legs, is now back on the market
in its original doctor recommended
clinical strength formula.
According to a national survey, the
formula at one time became so popu-
lar that it rose to the top of pharmacy
sales for topical pain relievers. But the
company marketing the product at the
time changed the formula and sales
plummeted. One of the inventors of
the original formula has brought it
back to the market under the trade
name ARI' ARREST and says it can
relieve pain for millions.
ARTH ARREST works by a dual
mechanism whereby one ingredient re-
lieves pain immediately, while a sec-
ond ingredient seeks out and destroys
the pain messenger signal before it can
be sent to the brain. Considered a
medical miracle by some, the ARTH
ARREST formula is useful in the
treatment of painful disorders ranging
from minor aches and pains to more
serious conditions such as arthritis,
bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, back-
ache and more.
ARTH ARREST is available in a
convenient roll-on applicator at phar-
macies without a prescription or call

Survivors include her

In 28-13 loss to East Gadsden



'Dogs fail to overcome penalties, turnovers


By AARON PORTWOOD
East Gadsden took advantage
of some controversial officiating
and five Bulldog turnovers to
hand Taylor County a bitter
28-13 defeat Friday night at
Dorsett Stadium.
The loss cost Taylor County a
chance to win a second straight
district title and home field
advantage in the first round of
the play-offs.
Instead, East Gadsden (5-
2, overall, 2-0 in district) only
needs a victory over winless
Walton County (0-8, 0-2) to
clinch the District 1-4A title,
while the Bulldogs (4-3, 1-1)
must defeat Marianna on Nov.
4 to advance to the postseason
as district runner-up. Marianna
(4-4 overall, 1-1 in district)
defeated Walton, 35-19 Friday
night.
The Bulldogs grabbed a 7-0
lead late in the first quarter on
QB Eli Grambling's 4-yard TD
pass to Jalan Jackson, but had
their momentum taken away as

swing in the other direction, as
East Gadsden was flagged 8
times for 80 yards in the second
half.
Unfortunately, the Bulldogs
failed to capitalize as the
penalty total was being evened
out. Taylor County committed
four second half turnovers,
including one that led to a
"scoop and score" touchdown
when Grambling was sacked on
a linebacker blitz from his blind
side and fumbled at his own
13-yard line. The loose ball.
was scooped up and returned
13 yards for a TD to give
the Jaguars two straight non-
offensive scores in the third
quarter and a 21-7 lead.
The Bulldogs had 5 turnovers
in the game, compared to just '
by the Jaguars, who completed
only 3 of 15 passes for 53 yards,
but rushed 38 times for 238
yards and 2 TDs.
Grambling (12 of 25, 159
yards, 2 TDs passing) was
intercepted 3 times and lost one

costly penalties began to pile
up.
In a game marred by over
20 penalties for a combined
230 yards, Taylor County had
several big plays called back
by questionable penalties (and
a key 32-yard catch that was
first ruled complete, but later
overturned by another official),
as well as several East Gadsden
drives that were kept alive due
to flags thrown by officials.
In one 8-minute span in the
second quarter the Bulldogs
had a long pass completion
called back for offensive pass
interference, were hit with 15-
yard penalties twice on 3rd
down plays to keep an East
Gadsden drive alive (which
resulted in a TD) and penalized
three more times for 30 yards
to help the Jaguars drive down
inside the 5-yard line.
Overall, Taylor County was
flagged 10 times for 100 yards,
with all but two penalties
coming in the first half when
the Bulldogs were ahead or tied
with East Gadsden. Once the
Jaguars had the lead thanks
to a 90-yard kickoff return for
a touchdown to open the second
half the pendulum seemed to

fumble, while tailback Jacques
Freeman (7 carries, 32 yards)
couldn't handle an option pitch
from Grambling that was also
recovered by East Gadsden in
a huge 3rd quarter that saw the
Jaguars score 14 unanswered
points on defense and special
teams. Grambling led the
Bulldogs in rushing with 23
carries for 98 yards.
Jake Smyrnios had 4 carries
for 3 yards.
"It was a very frustrating and
disappointing game. You have
to give East Gadsden credit. It
was the best game they have
played all year. They hit hard,
tackled well and blocked well,"
Bulldog Head Coach Steve
Price said. "We didn't get many
breaks all night. They only
turned the ball over one time
despite showing a tendency to
commit turnovers all year.
"We were not incredibly
crisp. We got frustrated by
some things that were out of
our control early. It was not
our best performance, but I
believe we ran out of time too.
If we play another 10 minutes, I
believe we come back and win,
but high school games are 48
minutes and not 60 minutes,"


Price added.
Freeman appeared to injure
his ankle on his first carry of the
game early in the first quarter
and limped throughout the rest
of the game.
Price admitted the injury
affected the Bulldogs on offense
and limited the play calling.
"It is not an excuse, but it did
significantly affect our game
plan. Jacques played extremely
well against Jefferson last week
and had his best week of practice
all year. He was a large portion
of our game plan coming in and
that changed some when he
twisted his ankle," Price said.
"To his credit he came back and
played hard the rest of the way,
but you could tell he was not
100 percent."
Taylor County started off
strong, converting two 3rd
down plays and moving 30
yards before turning the ball
over on downs at the Jaguars'
34.
After forcing a punt, the
Bulldogs got the ball back and
drove 72 yards in just 8 plays to
grab a 7-0 lead. The drive was
keyed by four Grambling runs
totaling 51 yards, including a
32-yard rumble during which
he ran over a defender.
Grambling capped the drive
with a short pass to Jackson
with 2:28 to play in the 1st and
Brian Wilder's PAT made the
score 7-0.
That is when the tide began
to turn, as Taylor County was
flagged 8 times for 85 yards in
penalties in the first half alone,
including a questionable 15-
yard offensive pass interference
that negated a 40-yard pass
caught by Moral Stephens.
Instead of 1st and 10 at the
East Gadsden 34-yard line, the
Bulldogs lost a down and faced
2nd and 25 from their own 12.
Two plays later the Bulldogs
were forced to punt.
On the very next series
Taylor was hit with two more
15-yard personal foul penalties
- a disputed roughing the
passer call on KJ Johnson, who
appeared to barely graze the QB
and a 15-yard pass interference
penalty on Jackson on what
appeared to be an uncatchable
pass.
Both penalties gave East
Gadsden first downs and set
up a 1-yard TD plunge by the
Jaguar QB to tie the game at 7-7
with 7:27 to play in the half.
On the ensuing drive
Grambling was picked off on
a pass over the middle, and the
Jaguars were helped by another
personal foul penalty on the
Bulldogs an alleged illegal
"horse collar" tackle when the
ballcarrier was clearly dragged
down by the jersey instead of
the back of his shoulder pads.
East Gadsden drove down
inside the Bulldog 5*yard
line thanks to a 38-yard pass
play over the Taylor County
secondary, but the Bulldogs'
defense held the Jaguars out
of the endzone on four straight
plays.
KJ Johnson, Javolis McNeal
and the Taylor County defensive
line came up big to keep the
score tied 7-7 at the half.
However, the Jaguars took
the lead for good on the kickoff
to open the second half, busting
a 90-yard return up the middle
of the Bulldog kick coverage
unit for a 14-7 lead.
Taylor County began
from their own 38, but went
backward when a 7-yard pass
to James Strawter was called
back for holding, Freeman was
thrown for a loss and Grambling
was blindsided while looking to
pass.
The fumble return for a
touchdown put East Gadsden
up 21-7 with less than 2 minutes
into the 3rd quarter.
A nice kick return by Chance
Rodgers set the Bulldogs up
near midfield, but a 32-yard
pass to Strawter down to the
Jaguar 25-yard line was called
incomplete by the back judge
after the linesman had signaled
a complete pass.
The Bulldogs were forced
to punt as the Dorsett Stadium
crowd continued to boo the


Big Bend Football Officials
Association officiating crew


based out of Tallahassee.
Johnson, Tyler Evans and the
Bulldog defense forced a punt
and Taylor started near midfield
again.
Grambling completed a nice
14-yard pass to Strawter (4
catches, 49 yards) and Freeman
took an option pitch 16 yards
for a key first down at the Jaguar
25-yard line. However, on 4th
and 5, Grambling threw into
double coverage for Strawter in
the endzone and was picked off
a second time.
After some missed tackles
allowed East Gadsden to drive
to midfield, Jackson, Wil Tuten,
Johnson, Evans, Smyrnios and
Daniel Wentworth helped hold
and force another punt near the
end of the 3rd quarter.
The Bulldogs picked up a first
down and crossed midfield once
again, but Grambling's option
pitch to Freeman bounced off
the runningback's left hand and
was recovered by East Gadsden
at midfield.
A "slobberknocker" hit by
Javolis McNeal and a fumble
recovery by Raydon Parker
gave the Bulldogs new life
three plays later, but Grambling
was intercepted on another deep
pass at the 13-yard line.
Connor Bishop, Johnson and
the 'Dog defense came up big
again to hold the Jaguars and
Taylor County's offense finally
got on track, as Grambling
completed a 14-yard pass to
Jackson and another pass to
Moral Stephens, who made
an NFL-caliber move to score
from 34 yards out.
A bad snap and hold resulted
in a failed extra point and a 21-
13 score with 3:30 to play in the
game.
Wilder's onside kick attempt
was recovered by the Jaguars,
and the Bulldog defense
appeared to run out,.of gas;
as numerous missed tackles
contributed to a 6-play, 51-yard
TD drive by East Gadsden to
seal the win.
Grambling quickly completed
three straight passes for 50
yards to drive the Bulldogs
down to the 22-yard line and
had his final pass knocked away
from Stephens in the endzone.
Not counting drives that
ended when time ran out in
the first and second halves, the
Bulldogs turned the ball over
on 5 of their 10 possessions,
scored twice, punted twice and
failed to convert on 4th down
once.
"We are frustrated, but
hopefully we will turn that
frustration into motivation.
I don't believe the team is
discouraged. I am still very


excited about this season. We
have a good team that has the
opportunity to do great things.
We are optimistic about what
we can still accomplish this
season. We are looking forward
to playing well against our next
three opponents and then the
opportunity to take on some
quality teams in the playoffs if
we take care of business against
Marianna in two weeks," Price
said.
"We've been handed some
disappointment. Just like in life,
you can choose to mope around
and feel sorry for yourself, or


you can pick yourself up, dust
yourself off and get back at
it. We have the chance to beat
Suwannee for the third year in
a row, and that hasn't been done
around here in a while. We have
the opportunity to make the
playoffs again and go far. Our
job right now is to keep things
in perspective and focus on
what we can still accomplish.
"We have great kids who
give everything they've got.
I'm mad as all get out, but I am
still positive. We are not going
to let this keep us down," Price
said.

Allison recognized for


his 'selfless sacrifice'


Dear Editor:
There are a lot of people who
I would like to thank for their
assistance in getting Navy Lt.
Robert C. Allison recognized
for his selfless sacrifice. I'm
sure I will miss some so please
forgive me because I hope I
have thanked you personally.
When Representative
Bembry declined to assist in
having a section of Highway 27
dedicated to Lt. Allison because
he was not from his district but
from Illinois, I thought all my


efforts had been wasted.
Fortunately, I was able to
contact Gina Busscher at the
FDOT Public Information
Office in Lake City, where
the request was approved for
a roadside memorial marker.
From there, Cindy Dunkle,
engineer with our local FDOT
office, asked John Frazier
and Mac Gentry to place the
marker which they did with
considerable respect and
dignity.

Senior center gives thanks


Dear Editor:
The Taylor Senior Citizens
Center would like to extend a
great big thank you to Culpepper
Construction for donating the
material and man-power to
repair a couple of holes in the
asphalt of the parking lot for
our seniors.
After viewing the area


needing repair, a crew was sent
the very next morning.
Culpepper Construction's
immediate response to the
parking lot safety hazard, is
greatly appreciated by this non-
profit organization.
In appreciation,
Taylor Senior
Citizens Center


Riders Captain Mike Donohoe
approved a PGR mission
for our fellow riders which
responded from Tallahassee,
Branford, Chiefland and several
areas in Georgia. Cecil Padgett,
our local PGR ride captain,
and Willie "Poppa Joe" Black,
ride captain from Valdosta,
coordinated the operation at the
Mission site.
Sheriff "Bummy" L.E.
Williams and Captain Richard
Johnson approved Sgt. Buddy
Lee and Deputy Thomas Gunter
to escort riders from the PGR,
CMA, Rolling Thunder Groups
and other motorcyclists to
the mission site, where they
remained on site to insure our
safety on Highway 27 during
the dedication ceremony.

outstanding job representing
the Department of Navy during
the ceremony. Dale Franklin

B-3 Taco Times October 26, 2011


Letters to the Editor iao mI

Dedication ceremony was'very meaningful'


SACRIFICE
Continued from page 2
and Dodd Franklin were there
representing our local AmVets
chapter. Tommy Murrow of
Bums Funeral Home created
a very nice remembrance
pamphlet. Palmer Lawn Care
handled the site care so we
would not be standing in knee


high wet grass. There were also
many guests from Taylor and
Lafayette counties who were
a bit young to recall when the
tragedy occurred, but there was
one there who lived through the
tragedy, Don L. Whitfield.
Everyone's efforts resulted
in a very meaningful
ceremony, but without the
eloquent coverage by Angela


Castelucci (Taco Times),
Bill Cotterell (Tallahassee
Democrat), Jeff Waters (Mayo
Free Press), Tom Compton
(Robinson Daily News)
and the presentation by our
County Commissioner Pam
Feagle, it would have all been
meaningless.
Thank you one and all.

demonstrates to the Administrator of
the EPA that It was impracticable to
raise such objections within the

Administrator of EPA must meet the
requirements of 42 U.S.C Section
7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with

EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington,
D.C. 20460. For more information
