Commission passes resolution
SWAT takes stand against flavored tobacco

to see local government in
action last week when they
successfully petitioned the
Taylor County Commission to

retailers to discontinue the

"Tobacco use is the single
most preventable cause of
disease, disability and death
in the United States," SWAT
member Kalab Wilson said to
begin their presentation.
"Candy and fruit flavors
mask the bad taste of tobacco,
making it easier for kids to
start using tobacco products.
These products contain flavors
like vanilla, orange, chocolate,
cherry and coffee, which are
especially attractive to youth."
"Young people are much
more likely to use candy or fruit-
flavored products than adults."
Catherine Crawford said.
In 2009, the U.S. Food and

products and the agency banned

DMH observes National
Doctors' Day on Friday
A-2 Taco Times March 28, 2012
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
joins the rest of the nation
by honoring its doctors this
National Doctors' Day, Friday,
The first Doctors' Day
observance was held on March
30, 1933, by the Barrow County
Alliance, in Winder, Ga.
The idea of setting aside a
day to honor physicians was
conceived by Eudora Brown
Almond, wife of Dr. Charles
B. Almond. The day was first
celebrated on the anniversary
of the first administration of
anesthesia by Dr. Crawford W.
Long in Barrow County, Ga., in
The alliance immediately
adopted a "resolution that
March 30, be adopted as
"Doctors' Day," the object
to be the well-being and
honor of the profession, its
observance demanding some
act of kindness, gift or tribute
in remembrance of the doctors.
Over the years following
overwhelming approval by
the United States Senate and
the House of Representatives,
on Oct. 30, 1990, President
George Bush signed SJ. RES.
#366 (which became Public
Law 101-473) designating
March 30 as "National Doctors'
The first observance of
Doctors' Day started with
mailing of cards to the
physicians and their wives,
flowers placed on graves of
deceased doctors, including Dr.
Long, and ended with a formal
dinner in the home of Dr. and
Mrs. William T. Randolph.
Through the years the red
carnation has evolved into a
symbol of Doctors' Day.
"Doctors' Memorial Hospital
does something special as a
thank you and salute to our
physicians every Doctors' Day
for their advanced medical
knowledge, fine skills in
diagnosing and treating disease,
promoting good health, and
exemplifying their everyday
commitment to excellence,"
DMH Medical Staff
Coordinator Debi Seagroves
"Patients who have long-term
relationships with their doctor,
families who rely on their
'Family Doc,' or anyone who
wants to thank a physician for
the care he or she has provided

How did we get to this point?

lone green plant on my desk which has
endured a couple of years in the steely
surroundings of a windowless office.
Feeling magnanimous, I took my
plant outside, positioned it near the
brick wall of our back parking lot and
allowed the showers of relief to wash
its leaves and stems.
If a plant ever smiled, it was this one.
Because of my shortcomings,
this plant will never be the Plant It
Could Have Been; it didn't get the

. Page then motioned to
approve the resolution with
a second from Wiggins. The
measure passed unanimously.
Following the vote, the
audience gave the SWAT team a
round of applause.
First as a parent then a civil
rights activist, I feel it's my duty
to respond publicly to the tragic
death of Trayvon Martin, the
17-year-old teenager murdered
in cold blood down in Sanford,
over a month ago.
This is a case where this
young man was chased down
aggressively, physically run
down after police clearly asked
him P i dHtdtAe shot VA
death for defending himself and
walking while black. We as a
small-knit community should
really search our hearts and reach
out to this family by sending
letters, phone calls, texts, emails
and using Facebook to oppose
the fact that Zimmerman was not
arrested, gun licenses not taken,
not treated as suspect but as the
defender just because Trayvon
was (YB&W) young, black and
walking as 90 percent of our
local teens do every day.
This cold blooded murder
should be treated as what is
right and wrong point blank,
this easily could have been your
'young white, hispanic or black
young child and the fact that
this man was not arrested and all
procedures normally followed
when a murder has taken place is
an outright shame.
The Sanford police department
should be dismantled and all
officers involved with this
initial investigation should -be
fired, charged with assessory to
murder by covering up evidence.
I as a parent don't care if this
young man was white, black
or hispanic. Mr. Zimmerman
should be arrested, charged with
murder and put on trial by a jury
of his peers. Then the Sanford
Police department should be
dismantled from the chief to
the officer whom is to this day
covering up evidence that proves
the fact this young man was
murdered in cold blood.
Fact. Remember in this case
Trayvon's personal space is
the one was invaded when
Zimmerman disobeyed the
police instructions, "We don't
need you to follow him," and
ran Trayvon Martin down
and attacked him for wearing
a hoodie, eating Skittles and
drinking ice tea while walking
through a gated neighborhood.
Now the character of this young
man is being attacked by what
he did at school. This has
absolutely nothing with the fact
he was chased down, attacked
and shot to death.
We should have open dialog
that racial profiling does exist
everywhere not only in Sanford
but Perry, Atlanta, New York,
Texas, etc., (everywhere) and it's
time for true dialog and citizen
outcries for all to be aware that
your race and being young is not
a crime and doesn't mean your
teenager is not up to no good
because he or she decides to walk
to and from the store. In closing,
before we judge this young man
for his color, past or what he
did at school two months ago,
remember this could have easily
been any one of our children.
I'm in the process after
many and much outcries from
many young folks here lately
wanting to participate in some
type of peaceful protest to the
way this murder case has been
handled by Sanfortpolice while
Zimmerman is continually
walking free. Planning an orderly
right vs. wrong platform locally
April 6 where everyone should
bring Skittles, wear a hoodie
while drinking a can of Arizona
Ice Tea in support of Trayvon
Martin and have a platform for
public awareness about this
nationwide outcry. (The press is
certainly encouraged to attend.)
This to let the world know
that anyone can walk the streets
and not be profiled because of
what you are wearing and the
color of your skin; and to protest
the fact the Sanford police is
an embarrassment to all law
enforcement and again should
be dismantled today. This is not
'They work for us, the people'
Continued from page 2
the war would get over with a
heck a lot sooner.
Yes, I said war, even though
our politicians call it a conflict,
or a peace keeping mission, it's
a war by any means, it may not
be a World War but it's a war,
and our troops are dying.
The first step in getting this
country back on its feet is to
start cleaning house, as in the
White House. We.need to take
the time and really analyze the
people running for office and
get their attention to assure that
they understand that they work
for us, the people, the people
that put them into office in the
first place. Most of them have
lost sight of that obligation.
As I was talking to a number
of people last week, I asked
how many of them knew who
the local politicians were for
our area and for the most part
no one. Go figure!
Don't blame Obama for that
one, blame yourself, we should
know who was elected to
represent us in Washington as
well as our own state. We should
be stuffing their mail boxes
with letters and comments with
the pros and cons of how they
are doing. They need to know
how we feel especially if they
expect to get re-elected next
time. They need to remember
who elected them and why they
were elected in the first place.
R. Buzz Powers
something planned for black,
white or hispanic only, this is for
the Taylor County community to
protest and support awareness
what is right and what is wrong
in America to bring justice,
justice, justice in support of
Trayvon and his parents.
We need not make this a
black/white issue but again a
right versus wrong issue and
make no mistake this was cold
blooded murder and could have
easily been one of our children.
Those that cannot participate
can certainly send up prayers for
the Martin family. Information
will be made public soon to the

According to weather
forecasters, those elusive April
showers are always possible,
but rarely predictable.
So what about May flowers?
Well, you can have them, but
you may have, to provide the
"rain" they need.
Planting for summer and fall
typically begins in April and
May. Here are some of

narrow-leaf zinnias, pentas,
vinca, melampodium, croton
and copper plant.
For partial shade, you might
try impatiens, caladiums,
jacobinia, coleus or shell
ginger. Remember: If April
continues the "dry" pattern that
persisted in March, keep the
root balls of new landscape
plants moist until they become
established. For shrubs and
trees, this can take six months
to a year.

are incredible! She recalls
"Uncle Auley" and his long
white beard who, incidentally,
was my great-great grandfather.
She explained that in times past

"Aunt" or "Uncle."

as my bones began to creak.
(The others were ahead of me
and finished the entire track
walk!) Sadly, I forgot my
Southern manners--I left the
track before they were finished
without sayinggoodbye. Well,
some of my team members
became concerned about me
and must have feared I was
passed out somewhere along
the track! Kyle Rowell
grabbed two cold water bottles
and his little boy and took off
around the track to find me.

Youth raise $1800
to combat hunger
Youth from First Presbyterian and First United Methodist
churches gathered this weekend to observe a 30-Hour Famine,
focusing on the hunger and poverty found around the world.
"It was a meaningful event," said Karl Morgan, one of the
leaders of the group. "Our fund-raising goal was $1000 for World
Vision, and we actually raised more than $1800. That's what this
famine does--it gives the youth a chance to decide to serve the
hungry. But it does more than that.
"The videos were fantastic," he said. "I think they may have
changed the way the kids--and we leaders--see the world. We
learned how important it is to make a difference in the lives of
those living in poverty."
Youth leaders include Morgan and his wife, Ellie; Mary Jane
and John Fish; Katie Lincoln; and Brandi Turner.
Students participating included: Brittany Niles, Jordan Niles,
Katherine Crawford, Brandin Thurman, Dilan Clark, Ember
Sprigle, As ital* Ys. Jon ?9,iBA Caitlirr'
Weatherly, Cole, MacNeill, Justin Eckel, Anna Morgan and Eric
According to World Vision, every $30 raised can feed and care
for a child for a month. "We reminded our group that you're not
just feeding kids for today--you're helping them and their families
overcome poverty for a lifetime."
