cart into the outside lane of

'Concerned citizen' angry
over Neeley murder story
With all due respect 'to
journalism and the downturn in
these economic times, I found
it unconscionable that you
placed your financial pursuit
to "sell papers" by placing
Benny Neeley's murder (which
happened 36 years ago) on the
front of your paper as "news."
By highlighting Skip Jarvis
for "doing his job" by showing
up for the parole hearing is just
another way to embellish an old
story and promote your support
for Mr. Jarvis' political career
and pursuits. Guess every
politician needs a reporter in
You should be ashamed to
drag this horrific tragedy before
the family of Benny Neeley
- and have them re-live it, all
for the sake of promoting Mr.
Jarvis and your own financial
As someone recently said,
"It's like cutting open an old
wound and rubbing salt in it."
Mrs. Evelyn Neely and her
entire family lives with this
everyday without having to be
reminded of it. I'm sure nobody
in Perry would dare speak up on
this "sensationalism" but I felt I
had to. I was Benny's girlfriend
at the time and know he would
never have wanted his mother
to have to open the paper and
My question to you: do you
always put Mr. Jarvis or others
on your front page when they
attend a parole board hearing?
Isn't this the job we pay them
If not, you might want to
question your motives, which
appear very clear to me,
Morally concerned citizen,

I can'f think about it without smiling.
And in the privacy of my home, I too,
have tried to walk like a turkey.
Turkey Lurkey, of course, made his
debut in society as part of another well
known cast of characters in the book,
I loved the. book as a child; then.I
loved the book as a parent.

Clearly, while strutting in the privacy
of those kindergarten walls, and telling
turkey stories, "Miss Gail" was imparting
a kind of moral wisdom and hoping
the sky would, indeed, stay in place...,
at least until those precious, children
were picked up by their parents and
she could go home and put her tired
turkey feet up.
Flash forward to middle school where
the faculty worked like pilgrims to
prepare a Thanksgiving feast for the
community to enjoy.
I,'m from the South where we fry
absolutely everything, but none of us
had ever seen a turkey fried whole and
it was a marvel to behold.

that we were going to eat something

the Mayflower or endure seven months

Eating .'outside in the year's best
weather makes Thanksgiving
particularly memorable in North
We've never fried a whole turkey (how
many gallons of oil does that require?)
but we did once cook one upon the
grill, and upon a beer can...how can
delicately describe it?
The turkey sat upon the beer can
which was partially inserted into the
ca\ity of the bird.
It was a strange operation to watch,
and I feared that it was either illegal or
immoral, but the end result was a Tipsy
Turkey which was really quite tasty too.
"Are you sure he shot him between
the eyes?" I asked the husband with
He held up the dangling head of' a
turkey with a bloody shot between two
beady -nd glassy eyes.
The son was knee-high to a
grasshopper and he wasn't turkey
hunting. He was terrorizing trees and
an occasional: squirrel with his Red
Rider bb gun, when in\ the spirit :of
"even a blind hog finds an acorn every
now and then," he hit a turkey between
"We've got to eat him," the husband
said. "He's so proud."
Should we chastise him, congratulate
his dead-eye aim or play the lottery
because of his sheer good luck?
Parenting remains such a quandary.
"The turkey needs to bleed outside,"
I suggested politely,' "and when he's
given to me, I want him to resemble
what I see in a grocery store on a
styrofoam tray with plastic wrap and
an expiration date."
"It's not a domestic turkey,"' the
"Do your best," I begged.
With great misgivings, we dined
upon Turkey Murky and found the
wild game delightful. There was never
a pilgrim or an Indian who took more
pride in providing the centerpiece for

thanks to God.
The turkey is a fine bird and deserves
to be the crowning achievement of a
Thanksgiving feast, if not a national
holiday, but let us' forget not to be
grateful...even if. we gather around a
meatloaf or a salad. Whether you walk
like a turkey, hunt the land upon which
you live or simply enjoy a day of rest in

the couple turned a house into a home.
Thompson bungalow featured
on this year's Tour of Homes
Built in 1910, this simple cottage bungalow on
Julia Street has been the home of Chet and Terry,
Thompson for 24 years. On Dec. 4, it will be
among six homes featured on the Holiday Tour
of Homes, sponsored by the Perry Woman's
When the Thompsons purchased the home in
1987, their initial renovation involved gutting the
kitchen and bathrooms, .removing dropped
ceilings, refinishing heart pine floors, adding
closets, painting and wallpapering throughout.
, "The home had been empty for a year, and
repossessed by the bank, but we loved the simple
details and classic :bungalow features--the high
ceilings, front porch, fireplaces, wood, floors and
great circulation, as well as the location' in town."m
Subsequent renovations added a sunroom and
back entry porch as well as renovations to the
garage apartment. Though contractors have been
involved, much of the work has been
accomplished with the help of their families and
now grown sons. "The Thompsons are always

planning future projects and upgrades, and live
by the philosophy that when you finish your
house, you die," said Iris Parker who, with
Jeanne Raulerson, is chairing this year's tour.
The goal for the couple has always been
establishing a home for raising and
homeschooling their three children "and for
ministering to the community rather than an
authentic restoration." At various times, the
home has housed Sunday School classes, Bible
studies, church home groups and a ballet studio.
"Through the years, the personality of the
house has taken over and we have added simple
antiques, classic reproductions, family cast-offs
and pottery from our, travels. We admire the arts

design, philosophy of founder William Morris,

PSC approves Progress Energy's 2012 fuel costs
The Florida Public Service
Commission (PSC) on Tuesday
approved Progress Energy
Florida's 2012 fuel costs--the
final element of the total 2012
The overall price for a
residential customer using
1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh)
per month will be $123.19
beginning with January 2012
This change comes after
two' years of bill reductions
and represents .a three percent
increase compared to $119.34
per 1,000 kWh per month
currently charged, PEF officials
The average commercial
customer bill will increase three
to four' percent, and the average
industrial customer bill will
increase four to five percent.
New prices will take effect with
the first billing cycle in January
"The 2012 price reflectsour

president and CEO of Progress
"We remain committed
to return the Crystal River
Nuclear Plant to service, as it
is our lowest-cost generation
unit and provides: carbon-free
electricity to the more than 1.6
million families and businesses
that depend on us."
The approved changes, based
on a monthly, 1,000-kWh
residential bill include:
. New nuclear generation:
$2.86; a $2.67 decrease of
nearly 50 percent;
programs: $2.88; an 11-cent
$5.45; a 54-cent increase;
Fuel: $48.60; a $3.99
Purchased power: $11.74; a
$2 increase. ,
Previously, the PSC approved
a nearly 50 percent reduction

Complete 7-4 season
Bulldogs fall by one point to Yulee
^ I a1 < ** E/ >,
BY AARON PORTWOOD
The Taylor County Bulldogs
came up one point short in an
epic 42-41 shoot-out thriller
Friday night in Nassau County,
falling to the Yulee Hornets in
the first round of the Class 4A
The Bulldogs turned in their
best offensive game of the
Yulee 513-349--and matched
the Hornets score for score--
before special teams' miscues
ultimately ended Taylor
County's chances at pulling off
a huge first-round upset.
As expected, Yulee was
led by one of the nation's top
running back recruits in 5-star
junior prospect Derrick Henry
who handled 42 of the Hornets'
47 offensive snaps, carrying the
ball 34 times for 283 N ards and
4 TDs and completing his only
pass attempt (a trick play jump
pass) for a 23-yard ID. '
Henry, who has already
committed to olav at the
Uni\ersait of Georgia. broke
the Northeast Florida career
rushing yardage mark (7,479.
yards) set by former UF star
CiatrickFason mida\ through
the second half. ,
In just three \ears of \arsity
football. Henrr no"\ has 7,620
career rushing \ards and 92
touchdo% ns, needing onl\ 4
to break Fason's record of 96.
Henrn is on pace to eclipse
NFL Hall of Famer and former
Dallas Co boss star Emmin
Smith's state record of 8,804
career yards gained at Pensacola
In an effort to. keep the ball
out of Henry's hands, the
Bulldogs kicked away from the
dangerous return man all night.
However, as a result Taylor
averaged only 12 yards per punt
and opted to.give the Hornets
excellent starting field position
by not kicking the ball deep
on kickoffs and risking a long
Squib kicks, ,:shanked
punts and .poor kick 'coverage
combined to give Yulee an
average starting field position
of their own 47 yard line. Six
of the Hornets' drives began at
midfield or on Taylor County's
side of the field.
Meanwhile, the Bulldogs'
average start was their own 37
Two failed extra point
attempts (one blocked) proved
to be crucial.
Despite the huge difference
in starting field position, the
Bulldogs had a chance to fie or
pull ahead %with 2:07 remaining
in the game when QB Daniel
Wentworth found fellow
sophomore Moral Stephens on
a48-yard. TD pass.

get the kick off in the face of
Yulee's daunting kick block

blocked an earlier extra-point
kick and nearly got to another.
The Bulldogs attempted an
onside kick, but it was covered
by Yulee, who ga\c the ball

plays to run the clock out.

"They must have a horseshoe
or something," joked Bulldogs'
Head Coach Steve Price.

and Henry is a great player. We

their team was better than they

*"I was-pleased with the way
our, team kept coming back
time and time again. I am really
proud of the way we performed.
There were many opportunities
in this game (and this season)
for our guys to quit, and they
never did. I am so proud of
them," Price said..
When asked about the final
minutes of the game, Price said
he felt it was safer to kick the
PAT and tie than risk going for
the 2-point conversion and the
"My experience in high
school .football is that more
games are lost than they are
won. I believe the easiest way
to score in that situation is a
kick, and Brian has been almost
automatic on PATs all year,"
Price said. "I thought we wvoild
tie it up and let them make a
mistake or go to overtime.
"I think he was impacted by
the blocked PAT earlier and the
fact they almost got to another
one. We had not been protecting
real well on extra point kicks,"
"Hindsight- is 20-20, but
while we made it look easy
moving up and down the field
all night, at times they did a
good job of shutting down the
run inside and they had their -
corners locked tight on our
receivers down at the goal line:

stop them was the right move,
but I have re-lived it 1,000
times since then..!..and right
now I have to say I wished I
would have gone for it (2-point
conversion)," 1Price admitted.
"We .gave them possessions
deep on our side of the field
three times. I don't blame our
kids or our kicker or our special
teams. The onside kicks, squib
kicks and trying to keep it away
from Henry on punts had an:
impact on field position. We
were trying to steal a possession
all night. That is why we went
for the fake punt. We just didn't
cover well on special teams.,We

time on special teams this
offseason and next spring?. .

look human .during the first
half, as he took 19 of Yulee's
22 snaps out of the Wildcat
formation, but was held to
only 81 yards and 2 TDs on 16
carries thanks mostly to two
bad snaps that sailed. over his
head for -37 yards.
Those two bad snaps (one
recovered by sophomore Percy
Jacobs) and some outstanding
defensive plays by KJ Johnson,
Calub Murphy, Ja\ol is NlcNeal,
Connor Bishop, Jalan Jackson,
Justin Becerra and Darick Ward,
helped hold Yulee scoreless on

"It was a challenging year,
but it was a good one; Jalan
played his best two games of his
career these last two weeks on
both sides of the ball, and I am
really proud of him. He never
quit. Justin Becerra made an
amazing onside kick recovery
that kept us in the game. We all
thought there was no way he'
could get that ball back under
that pile," Price said;
"Moral, Jalan and Strawter
made some great catches; Daniel
played very well and Eli had
some nice runs. Jake Smyrnmios
came up with some huge runs
for us. I wish Jacques could've
have played the whole game,
but his ankle just wouldn't let
him," Price added.
Price praised the play of
the Bulldogs' offensive line,
which featured seniors Justin
McGuire, Blaine Brenner and
Aaron Crews, as well as senior
defensive players KJ Johnson,
Connor Bishop, Wil Tuten,
Raydon Parker and Becerra.
"My heart goes out to our
seniors, because I really felt
we would be playing for a few
more weeks, but it just wasn't
meant to be," Price added.
'"I hope that as the years
go by they think back on the
positive experiences of this
year and not this loss," Price
"They will be served well
by the lessons learned this year
that will go on with them for the
rest of their lives. I wish each of
them the very best."
"I feel good about our guys
and what they accomplished
this year. I am honored to have
coached them. We are real
excited about the good group
of kids we have. These seniors
have established the foundation,
and the underclassmen have
caught a glimpse of what we
can accomplish. I thank the
community and fans for the
great crowd and vocal support,
we received in this game

Rally for freedom!
Nov. 27, 2011 4:00 p.m.
County Courthouse, Cross City, Florida
The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Dixie County, demanding
the removal of the Ten Commandments monumental the courthouse,
a monument placed by a private citizen according to the Open Forum
guidelines crafted by the Dixie County commissioners.
In the first ruling the judge ordered the monument removed.
That ruling is being appealed.
You can help In this fight! Come to the Rally Nov. 27t!
The purpose of this rally is to inform freedom-loving Americans why this
fight is so important. It is being sponsored by Dixie County citizens in
order to sound the alarm that our rights and freedoms are being taken
away by un-elected judicial activists intent on forcing their vision of America
on the rest of us. This rally is also a fund-raiser to fight the ACLU in court.
Liberty Counsel is defending the County. Liberty Counsel, a non-profit
public interest law firm, provides legal services free of charge. Liberty
Counsel has a track record of defeating the ACLU the vast majority of the
time over the course of many years.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Opening prayer: Pastor Mike Brown, First Baptist Church, Cross City
Presentation of the Colors Pledge of Allegiance National Anthem
Special Music: Dixie County Interdenominational Choir
