Revels named 'Employee of the Year'
Pamela Revels, who has been
a bus driver and a substitute
teacher at Steinhatchee School
for the past 19 years, received
a few special guests Thursday
She was greeted by
Superintendent of Schools Paul
Dyal, who was holding a vase
of roses and quickly announced
she had been named the Taylor
County School District's
School-Related Employee of
According to Principal Sandy
Hendry, Revels has made a
lasting impression on the school
and its students, performing
numerous duties well beyond
her job title.
She has been given
Outstanding Volunteer Award
and Outstanding Sports
Program Volunteer Award for
the past five years running.
"Her official job title of
bus driver and substitute
teacher doesn't come close to
describing what Pamela does for
Steinhatchee School," Hendry
said in her nomination letter.
"If you've visited our school,
one of our sporting events or
even a community event, you've
seen Pamela there supporting
our school in one capacity -or
another. She is devoted to our
school and truly cares about the
needs of our students.
"I would be pleased with
Pamela's job performance if
all she did was get our students
to school safely each day and
substitute in our classrooms

so much more that makes her

an indispensable part of our
faculty," Hendry said.
"Through her involvement
with extracurricular activities
and her interaction with
students on the bus, throughout
the school day and in the
community, Pamela serves as
a mentor to our young people,
helping to form them into
responsible young adults."
Eighth grade student Luke
Hage, who rides Revels' bus,
added his own letter of support.
"Mrs. Pam is an awesome
bus driver and when she is not
driving the bus, she is either
volunteering to help our school
or covering a class for an absent
teacher," he said.
Hage also spotlighted Revels'
"Before school started, Mrs.
Pam canvassed the community
for donations so that every child
had a free Steinhatchee shirt in
the new dress code," he said.
"If there is a job to be done,
she does it and she does it right.

have her as our bus driver and

In the proposed House district
map, Taylor County will remain

the district's borders will shift
Currently Taylor is in District
10, represented by Leonard
Bembry of Greenville. Taylor is
in the center of the district, which
branches out in three directions.
To the southeast, it contains
Dixie County and most of Levy
County. To the northeast, it
contains Madison and Hamilton
counties as well as the northern
half of Columbia County. To the
west, the district includes most
of Jefferson County, the coastal
areas of Wakulla County and
the majority of Franklin County.
Under the new proposed
plan, Taylor County would
be in District 7, which would
drop Dixie, Levy, Hamilton and
Columbia counties to the east
while adding Lafayette County.
To the west, the district would
include Jefferson, Wakulla,
Franklin, Liberty, Calhoun and
Gulf counties in their entirety,
as well as the southwestern
comer of Leon County.
There are 120 House districts
in the state, and under the
proposal, each would contain
approximately 155,000 people.
Unlike Taylor County's
new proposed Florida Senate
district, in which Leon County
would contain 58 percent of
the population, the new House
district would consist of rural

highest population of any county

have more people.

bill sponsored by Senator Mike
The bill provides a number
of provisions to benefit

February is not easy for men around
here. General gun season is over
and Valentine's Day looms large. As
a spectator sport, I have so enjoyed
watching the agony and ecstasy of card
selection leading up to Valentine's Day.
If I wasn't sure before, I am now:
women are the consummate shoppers
of all times. They read the front of
every greeting card, check the price
on every back, and methodically make
their selection within 15 minutes,
proceeding with life and its other
Men, however, look as if they've been
dispatched from a recliner (where
they were comfortable), and their only
chance of returning is to find "the
perfect card," although they're really
not sure what that is. If it was a deer or
an auxiliary fuel tank, they could find
it. But what is "the perfect card"?
So they wonder: do you make her
laugh or bring tears to her eyes? If the
words sound like Shakespeare's, and
not your own, will she accuse you of
not reading the thing, or understanding
it? If the card flatters her greatly, will
she accuse you of being insincere,
or of sending your secretary to make
the purchase? This poses quite a
dilemma for a man wanting to return
to a place where he is comfortable. His
In fact, men in general approach a
valentine display with great fear--as if
someone they know might see them
The same man who can read a
magazine sold in a brown wrapper,
can't publicly endure a suggestive
valentine while surrounded by women
in tennis shoes. These men must be
intolerable in a lingerie shop.
After the initial entry into the card
display area, men stand a safe distance
away: sizing up the categories, "Aunt,
Uncle, Daughter, Son, Wife-Romantic
(flush of color), Wife-Humorous
(what's funny about marriage?), Friend,
General, Baby's First, etc."
They read the messages, quietly
chuckle or nod, their eyes shifting
nervously back and forth. Then they
return each card carefully, always in
the right spot. In my days of research,
not once did a man return a valentine to
the wrong category. But I'll bet each of
them have left their socks on the floor.
When they finally ease over to
"Wife-Romantic" or "Wife-Humorous,"
they attempt to ignore the general
public. They dodge cards bearing
photographs of roses, and go for plain
white. They are embarrassed when
they find a funny one, bored with the
others. And let me tell you: this takes
I walked circles around a burly man
who was 6'2" and looked like he ate
bear for breakfast. As he searched for
the perfect valentine, I found socks,
aspirin, a window shade, two plants
and some make-up. Then I walked
around him again. He'd silently shake
his head and return the card. Finally,
he resorted to cards adorned with
photographs of heart-shaped candy
boxes and long-stemmed roses.
Then he put them back.
We're talking cards here, not panties.
Finally, after much consternation, my
new friend bought two valentines--one
frilly, one not.
The skeptical among us will
automatically assume that this man
cannot be trusted--that he has two
wives or a woman on the side.
I, however, plan to defend him. He
was simply too sincere. Too intent. Too
careful. I believe he purchased the two
valentines because they tied for first
place as "perfect" and he would decide
in the privacy of his recliner, which one
to give her.
Little did he know, that makes a card

Cadets from Taylor County
High School's JROTC program
recently came to the aid of a
local elderly couple that faced
the difficult task of moving out-
"Alethea and Oakley
Slaughter had lived in Perry
for 35 years, but were moving
to Tennessee to be closer to
their children. They needed
assistance packing and loading
everything they owned. JROTC
Booster parent Dulcie Yelverton
was asked for information on
good help that the couple could
trust. Mrs. Yelverton, in turn,
approached a number of cadets
to assist the couple," 1SG (Ret.)
Eddie L. Smith explained.
"The young men were Cody
Yelverton, John Arnold, Joseph
Franklin, Denton Blackman,
Philip Sherwood and Dalton
Blackman. The cadets worked
on Dec.13, as well as the
following Friday. For their
diligent work Mr. and Mrs.
Slaughter sent two checks
to support the high school's
JROTC program. These are
some of the ways we help our
community be a safer and better
place," he said.
In a letter to the leadership
of the JROTC program, the
Slaughters praised the young
men who came to their aid,
"We want to tell you what an
incredible group of young men
you are developing... Twice
now a group of young men
from your local ROTC have
come and helped pack and load
the moving trailer. We cannot
tell you how impressed we
have been with these young
people. They have worked
diligently each time and
have shown us respect beyond
our greatest imagination. We
don't know what we would
have done without their
help... Thank you so much for
investing in these future leaders
Doing their part
"Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida!" events were held throughout the state last week. National Honor Society
students from Taylor County High School added to the celebration by reading in the classrooms at Taylor County
Elementary School. Readers pictured are (front row) Cheyenne Hoover, Ashley Anderson, Stacey Garand, Caitlin
