Smith tapped as new



head coach for TCHS

in Deland.

now in.


Scott's


hands
A bill which would eliminate
a 2010 requirement that almost
all septic tanks in the state be
inspected every five years has
reached the desk of Gov. Rick
Scott, who has until the end of
the month to sign or veto the
measure.
The 2010 septic tank law
drew complaints locally over its
potential cost to homeowners.
The Taylor County
Commission passed an
resolution in November 2010
asking the Legislature to repeal
According to officials
with the Taylor County
Health Department, there are
approximately 12,000 septic
tank permits in the county,
which would have resulted in
some 2'400 inspections per
year.
For a septic tank to be
inspected, it must first be
pumped out at the homeowner's
expense, which would be in
addition to any fees associated
with the inspection itself.
Attempts to repeal, the
legislation last year failed, but
language was added to delay
the implementation of the
inspection program so several

Taylor County native Ryan
Smith is expected to be the next
head football coach and athletic
director at Taylbr County High.
Supt. Paul Dyal said Tuesday
afternoon that Smith has
accepted the offer and he will
recommend him to the school
board at a May 1 meeting. Smith
will be replacing Steve Price


who has taken a job as North
Florida Christian's defensive
coordinator.
Smith is no stranger to Taylor
County football fans. He played
for the Bulldogs in the early '90s
and became an assistant coach
here in 1999 after graduating
from Valdosta State University
where he also played football.


But it's what Smith has done
over the past four seasons as 0
head coach that arguably make$
him one of the top prep coaches
in the state.
In 2008 he took his first head
coaching job at Gainesvilli
High to try and resurrect

Honorary Chair Dona Bembry Brady, center, was joined by her biggest fans--her daughter,
LaDonna LaValle, and grandchildren,: Conner and Maybre-jnn leading the opening lap Friday-;
April 13, for the 2012 Relay For Life held at Forest Capital Park. Although the final totals are still being calculated,
organizers estimated that contributions topped for $40,000.


Making strides against cancer


If you can take the measure
of a community by the works it
produces, then the 2012 Relay
For Life made giant strides for
Taylor County.
Not only did residents support
the American Cancer Society
fund-raiser by donating much
needed money, but they all
came out in droves Friday
to support the hundreds of


volunteers who manned brightly
decorated booths at Forest
Capital Park.
While the final totals are still
being calculated, organizers
estimated that contributions
topped $40,000.
The Buckeye/Frucon team
was recognized for raising the
most money, turning in $10,000.
Honorary Chair Dona Bembry


Brady, joined by family, led
survivors for the opening lap.
Once that lap was completed,
additional walkers stayed on
track for the rest of the night and
into Saturday morning-as a
symbol of Relay's core premise
that "cancer never sleeps."
The evening program was a
time to "celebrate, remember
and fight back," Event Chair


Leanne Karstedt said.
Setting the stage for thq
celebration were more than
a dozen campsites fashioned
to reflect an "entertainment"
theme, ranging from Gilligan's
Island to Marga-RELAY-ville.

DMH seeking continued upgrades for EMS fleet


Doctors' Memorial Hospital
is continuing its efforts to
update its emergency medical
services (EMS) ambulance
fleet, applying for a state grant
to purchase a new ambulance
for Steinhatchee.
The hospital recently
purchased two ambulances,
which went into service in
February, thanks to a $145,000


state grant DMH received last
year.
Earlier this month, the
Taylor County Commission
unanimously agreed to provide
a letter of support to DMH's
latest grant application.
The final draft of the letter
was set for approval during the
commission's Tuesday evening
meeting.


"This ambulance will be
serving not only Steinhatchee,
but also the entire southern
portion of Taylor County
as well as the northern portion
of Dixie County," the letter
states.
According to DMH CEO
Richard Huth, the ambulance
currently serving Steinhatchee
is a 2000 model.


McKinney leads the way
The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics was held Friday morning,
leaving Walmart at 9 a.m. and passing through downtown Perry shortly thereafter,
with local athlete Adam McKinney (shown above) leading the way with the torch.
Torch Run Coordinator Lin Gray thanked those who participated, saying the event
helps raise awareness for the program. "All of our athletes...their hearts are full
because of you all," Taylor County Special Olympics Coordinator Linda Pinson added.
Following the run, the group was treated to a free lunch at Burger King.


Any match required by the
grant would be funded by DMH,
Huth added.
The two new ambulances
DMH put into service this year
consisted of one brand new
"from the ground up" vehicle
and one consisting of the
existing ambulance "box" on
a new chassis, EMS Director
Marty Tompkins said.


DMH's operating EMS fleet
consists of three advanced life
support (ALS) ambulances and
one basic life support (BLS)Y
ambulance.
Three are stationed in Perry
while one ALS unit is in
Steinhatchee.
DMH added the full-time,
Steinhatchee ambulance in July
2011.


As new candidates emerge

Race for city council

seats gaining steam

The field for city council candidates has grown.
Incumbents Sylvester Harris, Dist. 1, and Alphonsq
Dowdell, Dist. 2, will both be seeking re-election to their respective
seats.
Debra McGrew has registered as a candidate for the Dist. 3 seat
being vacated by Mayor Emily Ketring (who has announced she
will not be running for re-election) and Charles E. Thomas Jr. has
filed notice as a candidate for the Dist. 2 seat.
Rounding out the current list is Shirlie Hampton, who previously
announced her candidacy for City Dist. 2.
The qualifying deadline for city seats is June 12; candidate
packets are available at City Hall.
Candidates must pay a.$25 qualifying fee or collect 100 signatures
from registered voters within the district being sought (they must
also sign a sworn statement of their inability to pay the qualifying
fee in order to utilize the petition method).
City ballots will be included with the Primary Election slated
Tuesday, Aug. 14. If a candidate fails to receive more than 50
percent of votes in the district being sought, a run-off election
would be held in conjunction with General Election Nov. 6.

and produced another district
champion team that went 10-2.
He said Tuesday he's excited
to be moving back home.
"We're excited to be headed
home and putting on that orange
and blue again," Smith said.
Smith, the son of Jimmy and
Sharon Smith of Perry, said
family considerations were part
of the decision to leave Deland.
He and his wife Tracey have


two boys, Brady, 5, and Jordan,
2.
"One of the perks about
coming home is that Brady and
Jordan will have a large family
to love them and help take care
of them," Smith said.
Dyal said he's excited to have
Smith back in the Taylor County
School system.
"We feel like he'll be here for
a while," Dyal said.
Smith's arrival will be just in
time for spring football practice
which gets underway May. 1.


Is Nutall River Rise a


first-magnitude spring?


SEPTIC TANK BILL
Continued from page 1
lawmakers tried again this past
session.
Sen. Charles Dean, whose
district includes Taylor County,
sponsored Senate Bill 820,
which would have repealed
the statewide inspection
program and replaced it with
an optional, standard septic
system inspection program for
all counties and municipalities
to be administered by county
health departments.
Although SB 820 passed
four committees, its progress in
the Senate stalled and was not
scheduled for a floor vote. Its
language, however, was added in
full as an amendment to House


Bill 1263, which reorganizes the
Florida Department of Health.
That bill passed 31-9 in the
Se and 86-29 in the House,
, er the new language,
d of the statewide
program, any county which
contains a first-magnitude
spring (one which has a median
water discharge of greater
than or equal to 100 cubic
feet per second) would be
required to implement its own
inspection program pursuant
to the standards set forth in the
language by Jan. 1, 2013. Those
counties could opt out of the
requirement, however, with a
supermajority vote.
Any county which does
not contain a first-degree
spring would not be required

to implement an inspection
program but would have the
option to do so.
Although it was previously
reported that Taylor County
does not contain a first-
magnitude spring, there now
seems to be mixed opinions on
the matter on the state level.
According to the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, Taylor does not
have a first-magnitude spring.
The Florida Geologic Service,
however, lists Nutall River Rise,
where the Aucilla River re-
emerges from underground, as a
first magnitude spring.
DEP only lists the following
counties as having such
springs: Walton, Washington,
Bay, Jackson, Wakulla, Leon,
Hamilton, Madison, Suwannee,
Lafayette, Levy, Marion and
Hernando.
Several environmental groups
in the state are calling on Scott
to veto the bill. Some in the
healthcare community are
also asking for a veto due to
measures included in the rest
of the omnibus Department of
Health bill, such as the closure
of the state's lone tuberculosis
hospital.
If Scott doesn't sign or
veto the bill by April 28, it
will become law, without his
signature.

Grandparent upset



at beach's condition


Dear Editor:
I took my grandkids to
Keaton Beach last weekend and
was upset at the condition of the
beach. Sand spurs, tall weeds
and piles of sea grass all over
the entire beach. Three steps
onto the beach and one of them
had a sand spur in their foot
(with flip flops on!).
Since, as far as I know, this
is Taylor County's only public


beach it should be a showplace
that encourages people to
come.
There were cars from many
different states in the parking
area plus a family from
Germany so people on Hwy. 19
are noticing the sign to Keaton
Beach and driving out of their
way to get there.
I heard many of them talking
about how disappointed they


A-4 Taco Times April 18,2012


were, not by the water or the
beautiful view, but by the
condition of the beach itself.
I think it would be helpful if
our county commissioners and
county manager would visit
the beach and find a solution
to the problem so Taylor
County can be proud of their
beach.

where I attended Taylor County
High School in grades 9 and 10.
I was active in the schools'

I moved back to Canada in
2006 and joined the Canadian


Armed Forces. I am a member

No good deed

goes unpunished


I hate to be punished for my good
ideas.
But I have been, again, so the only
question remains: when will I learn?
When I approached the publisher
about beginning a section for
Student Readers, and awarding their
efforts with a nominal prize--like a
doughnut--he wasn't overcome with
enthusiasm, but he rarely is.
"I think it would be great--it would
encourage a new generation of
newspaper readers," I said, promoting
literacy, the publishing industry and
the salvation of the civilization.
He said something like "we already
donate papers to classes at the
middle school and high school." But
I wanted to encourage students, I
told him, to do more than look at the
pictures--to learn that the classified
ads contain as much critical-
information as the sports rosters for
the various teams.
"Okay," he said rather
reluctantly. "What if it doesn't work?"
"Then it will fade into obscurity," I
assured him.
It hasn't faded into
obscurity. Instead, it has created
a new generation of newspaper
antagonists.
"Great," the publisher said
with sarcasm upon hearing my
report. "Good work."
Before I explain how it happened,
let me admit that I'm a horrible ogre
of a person because I decided that we
should limit the number of times one
person could win, in order to spread
the joy. It didn't seem unreasonable
to me; it just seemed fair to other
students within the district.
I didn't realize I hurt the feelings of
the previous student winners and the
adults who love them.
"You should have done it to begin
with," one told me pointedly.
She is absolutely right. I just-
never knew anybody would care this
much or try this hard. We have been
delighted with the response, but are
now horrified by the idea's demise.
"Give them a doughnut," the
husband shouted from his desk, and
it sounded a lot like an order.
"Are we giving everybody
doughnuts?" asked the receptionist
politely. "I need to know."
One day we had three winners within
three minutes. We couldn't deny any.
We celebrated each.

But as I re-evaluated the purpose of
this section (which anchors the second
classified page in each Wednesday's
Taco Times), I felt that having 15
winners was better than having three
which won five times each. Clearly, I
was wrong.
I've heard from the teachers that
I've created great discontent among
the student population. "We just have
so. many children who do the work
at school, but don't have anyone to
bring them downtown," explained one
teacher. "I ended up telling one that if
his mom took him to the office and he
couldn't win again, I would buy him a
doughnut if his answers were right."
O04 good grief, this is not at all
what I intended; the teachers are now
covering my debts and the students
are angry.
"Buy them all doughnuts," the
publisher shouted again from his
desk, trying to redeem my misguided
zeal.
As if it wasn't bad enough, one
teacher told me, "I'm surprised the
man with the boat reward isn't mad,
too."
Immediately, I flashed back to a
question posed last week: "A 16'
Sea Arkboat was stolen from a man's
yard. What is the reward?" I then
remember it was a trick question: the
reward for the Glen Campbell guitar
was listed, but this man's ad only
said, "Reward offered."
!The teacher continued, "All my
students wanted to call his number
and ask what the reward was."
I repeat: oh, good grief.
Just when I thought it couldn't
get. any worse, my staff guided me
deeper into despair. "One of those
little girls wasn't using the dollar
for a doughnut. She was saving her
dollars to buy her brother a birthday
present."
Well, just shoot me.
I looked at the staff. I looked at
the husband and he mouthed this
answer gruffly, "Give everybody a
doughnut." I've never seen him so
enthusiastic.
The next time I have a really good
idea that's going to save the world
and the newspaper industry, I'm not
going to act on it or tell the publisher
either.
Instead, I'm going to give it to our
competition, and watch them pick up
the miserable little pieces.

Flowers will be featured



during music, art festival


By JEFF BYERS
This year the fifth annual
Forest Capital Music & Art
Festival will feature paintings
by artist Ben Flowers.
His work has been a work
in progress for 30-plus years.
He was born in Omaha, Ga.,
outside of Columbus, Ga., in the
Fort Bend area March 7, 1958.
He is seventh of 13 children
which include eight boys and
five girls.
Both his mother and father
were share croppers in Stewart
County. He moved to Taylor
County at the age of 11 and
graduated from Taylor County
1 High School in 1977.
While attending school he
was extremely inspired by two
wonderful art teachers, Miss
Katrier in the eighth grade and
Pat Ketring throughout high
school through her drawing,
painting and ceramic classes.
His talent was his art and
.like many young people of the
ttime he was unsure of what he
could do with it. So, while in
high school he signed up with
the Army. After graduation he
went to Fort Jackson, S.C., for
basic training for AIT (Advance
Individual Training). He became
a part of the infantry to be
ready for combat. He became a
certified tow gunner and supply
specialist, who was involved in
maintenance of all weapons.
First stationed at Fort Stewart,
Ga., for combat training, he
moved around for about two
years. He then went on to

Gelnhausen, Germany, outside
of Frankfurt, and was assigned
to a tank battalion as a company
armor/supply specialist.
While in Germany, he was
inspired by the art. He went
to the Gelnhausen Library to
rekindle his interest in art.
At the library, he looked for
information about how to do
and create art. Using methods he
gleaned from his library research
and what he had learned from
his inspiring teachers, he self-
taught himself what he needed
to do his paintings. He started


with acrylic paint for a short
time and then shifted to oil and,
to this day, prefers using oil
paint for all his work.
After being honorably
discharged from the Army, he
came back to Perry and within
one week he was working for
the Taylor County Sheriff's
Department. Two years later
he joined the Perry Police
Department. He served the
police department for 26 years
and retired as a detective.
After retiring he has been

'Beans and potatoes and cornbread' were served at the Foley Lunchroom which now
belongs to Mark Southerland and sits behind South House Furniture.


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Managing Editor
Finding remnants of the community of Foley will take you in
many different directions. Houses from the early sawmill
community were removed from the site when Procter & Gamble
began construction of Buckeye Cellulose in the early 1950s.
But who would think to look behind South House Furniture?
It's as good a place as any to start.
Mark Southerland now owns what served as the Foley
Lunchroom. "It was at the old Gladys Morse Elementary School,"
he said. "In the 1980s, they put all those old buildings up for sale
and we (Mark and father, Jim Southerland) put in a sealed bid. We
got it," he said.
Harry and Shirley Hall remember lunches in that unspectacular
lunchroom. "The kids who ate there called it the Soup Kitchen,"
Harry remembers with a laugh. "We had simple meals--beans and
potatoes and combread--nothing fancy. But the vegetables were
often fresh, from someone's farm."
"And my mother worked there," Shirley said. Her mother, Mrs.
Gertrude (C.M.) Parker and Daisy Howell were the lunchroom
ladies, charged with providing nutritious meals. Occasionally, the
menu was expanded to feature the day's harvest or slaughter.
"Mr. Bethea was the school bus driver and also had a big farm,
so he once provided for the school lunches by bringing a pig,"
Harry said.
The rest of the story stands in contrast to the rigid rules of today's
lunchroom standards, because the students helped to prepare the
pig for consumption "They'd clean a barrel and then dig a hole
with like a 38 or 49 degree slant with boards leading down to it.
Then they'd put the barrel in the hole and the pig in the barrel,"
Hall said, remembering the details.
Why? "Because you can't pull a pig out of a hole unless you
have the leverage of the slant," he explained, realizing the story
baffles today's shoppers who buy their pork under cellophane.
"The boards were scalded with water boiled in a separate pot--
like a wash pot. After that, they added the pig and poured more
scalding water over the pig to loosen his hair," Harry said. "When
they pulled him out, he was just as clean and white as you please.
"I remember the day when Mr. Andrew Jackson, the principal,


This former Foley house--typical of most--was
later moved to Salem. Granddaughter Polly Ferrell
Waller remembers good meals around its kitchen table.


said to me, 'Harry, get out there and help them dress that pig.'" So
me and the older kids would pull the hair off the pig. Then his
skin would be scraped well and he was hung by his feet underneath
the carport where the teachers usually parked. That's where they
split him open and dressed him out."
The Halls remember that the lunchroom had, at its far end, a
nurse's station managed by Miss Pearl Winstead. Now that
lunchroom, which holds more than a few memories, sits behind
South House Furniture.


Dr. Baker's office, which originally featured a front
porch, is kept in good condition on his daughter's
property south of Perry. Hall vividly remembers
having his tonsils removed there.
Another Foley building which prompts the memories of those
who called the community home, was Dr. Walter Baker's office. It
sits off U.S. 19 South on his daughter's property, a testament to a
career of medical expertise.
"He was a little gruff," Harry said, "but he had a heart of gold--
he'd do anything for anybody, day or night."
And apparently, Dr. Baker did.
This is what the Halls, collectively, remember about the doctor's
office: there was a waiting room for colored patients, and a


Hall has a copy of a plat map for the community of
Foley, showing all the buildings on site, including the
pressing club (drycleaners),garage and commissary.


waiting room for white patients. Both sides faced the desk of th4
secretary who also functioned as a nurse (as did Dr. Baker's wife)!
"In the examination room, there were just a few pieces of medical
equipment. He worked all the time, and then he was on call. He
was employed by the company, and as I recall, all employees paid
a few cents in every check toward their healthcare. Now if yot
had a serious accident or injury, you were sent to hospitals iri
Jacksonville or Thomasville, Ga."
Dr. Baker delivered Harry and his brother in their home at Foley,
and also his sister, but at a Thomasville hospital. "He also had a
little library as part of his office," Harry recalls. i
They both remember when clinics would be held at Dr. Baker's
office and a surgeon would come to remove everybody's tonsils
"It was one of the most frightening experiences of my life," Harry
said, "but you got to eat a lot of ice cream."
Using a map that Louis Shaw's daughter passed along to her!
father and to Harry, he points out other buildings which were part
of the original Foley community: the pressing club, which was 4
drycleaners owned by the music teacher who was a Juillar4
graduate, Lurleen Rand. "Looking back, you often wonder hovi
people ended up in the little community of Foley because their9
were quite a few talented individuals there," Harry said. Bothl
agree that Rand was a fabulous music teacher.
He points to the Carbur section which contains a small groupings
of houses. "These were moved from Carbur to Foley when the
plant in Carbur was closed down." Even though the houses were
contained in one area, the residents used the other schools,
buildings, etc. that Foley residents did. There was a barber shop,:
a post office, a theatre which eventually burned to the ground, a
garage, a commissary and the Foley Hotel. There was also a:
Baptist church which "everybody attended," he said.
Transportation to other churches was limited so most people
worshiped where they lived. "The first pastor was a fellow by the
name of Crawford, then Charlie Martin, a Hensley and then Dr..
Gross."
"Dr. Gross is the reason I went. to Stetson," Shirley adds,
remembering fondly how the doctor "looked out for us--he got me
into Stetson, drove me there and dropped me off at the age of 16.1
I had an audience with the president of the college and he was the
nicest person. He told me they'd take good care of me and they
did. I worked in the registrar's office while I got an education."
The bell from this church first went to a black church
congregation near Foley Land and Timber. Then a childhood
friend of Harry's, Ed Cothran, purchased it from that church. It
now sits at the entrance to Southside Baptist Church. "When his
mama died, they rang that bell as everyone passed by," Harry
remembered.
The school bell rings loudly in his memory, too, but its location
is uncertain. "It was a typical prank to fill that bell with water at
Halloween so the principal couldn't call us to line up for classes."
The Halls remember well how the company took care of its own.'
"Everybody who wanted a job with P&G (Procter & Gamble) gof
it," he said. "I was later told by a man that his job in the earlyN
1950s was to find out who was burning the land around here andc
to hire them for P&G. The thinking was that 'if you know where
they are, then you'll know what they're doing.' He told me he
found them, and hired them--giving them jobs in logging'
surveying and even firefighting, of all things. i
"I got a summertime construction job there as they were
finishing the Buckeye plant and I was finishing my education. Ind
the '50s, if you made $30 a week, you were doing pretty good.'
The H.K. Ferguson Construction Co. started you out at $65 a week,
plus overtime. It was a good money source."
And Foley, they both maintain, was a great place to grow up. i
People who agree will gather on Saturday, April 21, for the
annual Foley Reunion to be held at Forest Capital Hall. "Come at$
10 a.m. and stay as long as you can," he says. Covered dishes will
be shared for lunch, and memorabilia will be shared all day.
Memories often surround a table, whether it's a school
lunchroom or a reunion gathering. You're invited to find your way;
to one on April 21 when the Soup Kitchen crowd gathers at Forest
Capital Park once more...to find Foley, again.


This Foley home was changed drastically by a full-length porch for outdoor living. It is currently located in
an area formerly known as Rabbit Run.


Plane spotters organized


Japanese air raids kept Foley alert


BY HARRY HALL
During the early years of
the 1940s there was imminent
danger of Japanese air raids--
at least in the minds of nearly
everyone in Foley. All of
Brooks-Scanlon's lumber
products were vital to the war
effort since there were
hundreds of military bases
being constructed all over the
United States.
Towns of all sizes were
organizing and training
civilian volunteers to be
vigilant and prepare for any
serious eventualities. Men and
women were being trained by
the Red Cross and the town
doctor, W.J. Baker, to perform
first aid, cut and roll bandages
and to pack small necessities
in boxes for the troops being
sent overseas.
Street air warden teams
were formed and practice air


raid drills were held on
designated nights. Team
members walked the streets
and reminded everyone to turn
out all unnecessary lights and
to keep the window curtains
drawn.
All automobile headlights
were blacked out on the top
half with a decal in order to
reduce their visibility from
enemy planes.
These were exciting times
for small children but, for
Foley's adult residents, it was
serious business.
The company built a small 8
by 10 shack in the middle of
our "kite flying field" about
200 yards from the
administration office. It was
equipped with an old desk,
two rickety chairs, a spotter
log and pencils, a hand crank
telephone and a single ceiling
light with a long pull string.


The plane spotter volunteers
were trained to detect air
traffic and report the
approximate altitude,
direction and the number of
engines.
This information was
phoned to the nearest military
installation for appropriate
action. My dad pulled a six-
hour shift one night every four
weeks. To this eight-year-old,
that event was one of the most
important things that occurred
during the entire war. After
my constant pleading for
several days, dad finally
consented to let me act as his
assistant. I could only imagine
how many times we probably
saved Foley from utter
destruction with our vigilance
and timely reporting. The
constant strain from trying to
stay awake and listen for the
distant drone of engines


seemed to lull me into my
most pleasant dreams; only to
be rudely awakened by the
irritating crank of the phone as
dad reported another sighting.
Years later, after the war, I
would amuse myself thinking
about my self-importance
during those trying years and
how many times dad saved me
from falling out of the chair,
then guided me home in my
stupor and tucked me in a
warm bed.
I even supposed if any
enemy plane had flown over
Foley at night and we turned
on all the town lights, blinked
all the car head lights and
blew the mill whistle--we
were probably in the safest
sawmill town in Florida.
Even so, I still thought I was
some company to my dad
during many of those long,
still nights.

These three homes are thought to be "later" version,
Foley houses with modified porches. They current
face U.S. 27 near New Home Baptist Church.
