How would you celebrate
your birthday if it only rolled
around once every four years?
For many residents in our
community, the answer is
simple.. .one big party!
"My husband and I start Feb.
28 and celebrate through March
1 so we don't miss it," said Leap
Year birthday girl Carrie Warf.
"Being able to celebrate my
real birthday-Feb. 29-is
always extra special," she said.
For many Leap Year babies,
birthdays are either celebrated
a day early "to keep it in
February" or a day late "March

in a very special way...by
welcoming their new daughter,

30,000-acre development plan approved
Building off the framework
established by the Vision 2060
Plan, Foley Timber & Land Co.
is developing a plan for more
than 30,000 acres of its land in
Last week, the Taylor County
approved a development order
for Foley's master development
of regional impact, which was
reviewed and approved by the
North Central Florida Regional
Planning Council (NCFRPC)
late last year.
In Florida, a development of
regional impact (DRI) is defined
as a development large enough
to impact more than one county.
In the case of Foley's plan,
which is the largest ever
reviewed by NCFRPC, the
development consists of 10
distinct planning areas, each
of which is large enough to
be considered a DRI, which- is
the reason a master DRt was
required, according to NCFRPC
representatives who addressed
the commission last week.
The development order the
commission approved does not
permit any development, but
will allow future developers
to apply for an incremental
development order fotr-one or
more of the planning areas. Any
such application would have to
undergo local and state review,
including approval by NCFRPC
and the county commission.
The planning areas consist
of eight urban planning areas

In selecting its "Member
of the Year," the Perry-Taylor
County Chamber of Commerce
seeks to recognize a business
that not only makes an impact on
the chamber, but the community
This year's honoree doesn't
seek the limelight, however "he
contributes not only financially
but personally as well by
giving generously of his time,"
Chamber Director Dawn Taylor
"He volunteers at all of our
festivals and is someone we
can really count on to be there
whenever we need him," Taylor
said. "We recognize his worth
both to the chamber and the

everyone else know as well."

Taylor Correctional Institution Sgt. James Hayden, left, is presented the Perry
Rotary Club's inaugural Our Hero Award by Rotary President Mark Viola at Friday's
annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet.
Sgt. James Hayden with
Taylor Correctional Institution
(TCI) was the inaugural
recipient of the Perry Rotary
Club's Our Hero Award,
announced Friday evening at the
Perry-Taylor County Chamber
of Commerce Banquet.
The award recognizes an
individual, nominated by his
or her own department, who
demonstrates an outstanding
level of service to Taylor County
beyond the usual scope of their
duties during the past year.
Nominated by TCI Warden
Scott Crews, Hayden was
recognized for his actions on
Sept. 22, 2011, when he and
another sergeant were attacked
by an inmate.
"On this day Sgt. James
Hayden performed his duties
with the same pride, courage
and professionalism that he and
all correctional officers do every
day in a risky environment; but
on this day his actions saved the
life of his fellow officer," Crews
Hayden and the other officer
entered a dormitory and an
inmate charged the second
officer and began assaulting
him, Crews said.
"Without regard for his
own safety Sergeant Hayden
intervened," Crews said.
The inmate then charged at
Hayden, assaulting him before
returning his aggression back to
"Sgt. Hayden, although hurt
and injured, grabbed the inmate
while the inmate attempted to
further assault him," Crews
said. "Sgt. Hayden was able to
maintain his hold on the inmate
until additional assistance
arrived. Sergeant Hayden
ignored his own injuries in order
to protect the life of his fellow
officer and likely prevented the
inmate from killing him."
At Friday's banquet, the Our
Hero Award was presented by
Perry Rotary Club President

Perry Rotary Club has been

Allowing people t take money from IRAs
tax free would provide boost to economy
I have requested from Senator
Nelson, Senator Rubio and

Dear Senator Nelson, Senator
Rubio and Mr. Southerland:
Much is being said about
the dollars corporations hold
in overseas accounts. There
are those who think that if
corporate tax rates were lower,
corporations would bring these
dollars back to the U.S.. which
could result in hiring employees
and building infrastructure.
Personally, I doubt this would
happen, as regulations probably

plans? Could this be .more
than corporations are holding
overseas? So, without the
increased demand for goods
and services, the economy will
never recover. Many of those
with IRAs will not access this
money because of the taxes and
penalties they would have to,
pay if the money was removed
from the IRA.
For example, say that I wish
to buy a new car, but in order to

"It Makes Me Sad To Think That We Live In A Time Where
Our President Would Apologize to Our Enemies While
Stomping On The Religious Freedoms Of His Own People."
"I want to die having fun."
That message was -found among
the interesting e-nails I received oh a"
recent weekend when I thought I might
die of a stomach virus.
I wasn't having fun, and it wasn't the
way I wanted to die, although I thought
death was imminent and perhaps even
preferable to the misery I was then
In fact, I descended into a very deep
hole thinking about the horrors of
life, and am happy to have arrived on
the other side...but not without some
musings, however dark they might
When you reach a certain age, you
consider your demise. Like my friend,
you want to die having fun. But, I ask
you: how many people get that wish?
I recall, vividly, a conversation with
a good friend about his own father's
death many years ago. His father
worked in school administration during
the 1940s and came home for lunch
every day. Awaiting him would be the
kind of lunch that Georgia women were
famous for back then: an entree of
fried chicken, roast beef or pork chops
with two sides, cornbread or biscuit,
On this particular day, his father ate
his lunch with his family while enjoying
a tall glass of sweet, iced tea, and then
laid down on the couch for about 10
minutes' of rest. It was his routine.
Except this day, he never woke up.
"Tragic," the people lamented, and
it was, but his son now realizes what
a gift it would be to depart in the same
manner for who among us would choose
pain or trauma? Not a one. We'd float
off on a cloud or die laughing. Literally.
That can happen. Another friend
of mine tells the story of her father's
death at the young age of 51. He
played 29 holes of golf and was in the
midst of telling a joke to his golfing
buddies, when he collapsed with a
heart attack. He never made it to the
punchline, but that may have been his

friend's husband who was found dead
on a creekbank where he .had been
fishing on a pleasant day. Beside him
was a stringer of fish he had lured from
the waters below. Yes, he had a heart
attack. But first, he had a good time.
For a final good time, I'd shoot my
best round of golf in the morning of
a 78-degree day with clear skies. I'd
wear cute capris, and then enjoy lunch
with the girls over a tall glass of iced
tea with the condensation dripping
down the sides. I would go shopping
with the daughter in cute shoes which
didn't hurt, spend too much money on
people I might never see again on this
earth, and return home to be toasted
by the husband and the son over steak
and potatoes with a nice garden salad,
crunchy croutons and the best ranch
dressing ever made. ; I would laugh a
lot, take a great family picture, witness
a fabulous sunset, listen to the birds in
my backyard, walk with my dog, enjoy
a bubble bath, fall into a deep sleep on
a feather pillow and never wake to see
the laundry basket again.
It was my Aunt Lucy who always
said she wanted to die between
cocktail parties. At age 85, she got
her wish. She lived an elegant, single
lifestyle in a university town with a
sparkling, crystal chandelier in her
bathroom. She entertained a lot and.
she was entertained a lot.
Aunt Lucy gave a party at her home
the night prior to her death.- She
had gone to have her hair done in
preparation for a party she was going to
attend that night. She returned home,
got out of her car and collapsed before
going into her house. The cleaning
lady coming to straighten up from
the previous night's party found her
We grieved Aunt Lucy's death for
the lavish and generous lifestyle she
exhibited and we would miss. Yet we
rejoiced that she got her wish.
"Between cocktail parties," we still
whisper to each other, remembering
that even in death, some women always
get their way.
Oh, to be one of them.

County, city hammering out
details for 'rec' agreement
The city and county are continuing to hammer out the details on
an interlocal agreement under which the county would take over
operation of recreation league sports for local residents.
The Taylor County Commission unanimously approved a draft
agreement in December and forwarded it to the city for review.
Last week, County Administrator Jack Brown presented the
agreement back to the commission with changes suggested by City
Manager Bob Brown (no relation).
Under the agreement, the county and city would agree to
maintain their own facilities at no cost to the other entity while
sharing in the cost of the operation of the leagues based on the
percentage of participation of city and county residents.
For the county, the facilities consist of the Taylor County Sports
Complex, while for the city it would be the existing baseball and
The sports complex would provide the primary fields for
baseball, while the city's softball fields on Johnson Stripling Road
would be the primary fields for that sport. The city's baseball fields
would be used for practice fields.
While the new draft included language which would have
capped the city's contribution at 300 percent of total city resident
registration fees, Jack Brown told commissioners that line had
Additionally, they had settled on a budget of $83,000 for fiscal
year 2011-12, with the city's participation expected to be 40
percent, Jack Brown said. The city would pay the county twice a
year rather than the quarterly method in the original draft
Jack Brown said the budget would allow the county to expand
the part-time sports complex's concession manager into a full-time
sports complex coordinator.
"This agreement establishes the mechanism whereby the county,
with continued support from the city, becomes the lead facilitator
for recreational league sports services for county and city residents
with service cost shared on a pro-rated share basis by both
governmental entities," the agreement states.
At last week's meeting, Commissioner Pam Feagle said she
wanted to know the city's maintenance costs for its facilities as
well as recreation costs from prior years when the city was the lead
After some discussion, Commissioner Malcolm Page said he
would like some additional figures as well.
Ultimately, the commission decided to take no action on the
agreement and were expected to discuss the issue further at its
workshop on Feb. 28.

to put on the costume.
Then at 8 a.m., bright and

full regalia with golf cart all
decorated and ready for bear
when the little electric motor
was just too pooped to pop and

in distress and offered one of his
golf carts as a substitution for
the dead one. YEAH! Ducks
are back in business.
After taking all decorations
off one golf cart and
placing them on the other, the
duck mobile was once again
ready to go.
