When someone asked organizers of the 2012 Memorial Day ceremony
if they planned to cancel due to rain, the answer was short and to
the point: "We fought in worse weather than this." More than 100
people-armed with umbrellas and ponchos--attended the event, held
Monday morning at Veterans Memorial Park. Veterans read the names of
Taylor County's war dead and honor was given both to their service and
their memory. As guest speaker Joe Collins concluded. "We are the land
of the free because we are the home of the brave.' For more on the
ceremony, please see page A-6.


Weather factor


in deadly crash


Memorial Day

While Tropical Storm Beryl brought welcome rain to the
area, the stormy weather is said to have been a contributing
factor in a fatal crash that claimed the life of a 20-year-old
motorcyclist here Memorial Day, May 28.
David B. Sasnett, 27, of Athens, Ga., was eastbound on
U.S. 27 near James Bethea Road when his 2008 Honda

State lowers FCAT passing scores


The writing portion
of the 2012 Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
(FCAT) has proved to be
the most controversial to
date, with Florida officials
responding to a sharp
decrease in scores across the
state this year by lowering


what is considered a passing
grade.
Here in Taylor County,
students in eighth and 10th
grades scored near the state
average, while fourth grade
scores significantly trailed
the state mark.
Among the changes made


this year, the test included
expanded expectations such
as increased attention to
the correct use of standard
English conventions and
increased attention to the
quality of details, according
to the Florida Department of
Education.


Taylor County
Superintendent Paul Dyal
said the district was made
aware of the changes to
the conventions, but added
that additional changes to
the test's scoring "rubrics"
caught districts off guard.
In response to the lower


scores this year, the state has
dropped what is considered
a passing score, from a 4.0
(out of 6.0) to a 3.0.
In eighth grade, 194
students at Taylor County
Middle School (TCMS)

Beryl brings much needed rain


Tropical Storm Beryl
provided a soggy Memorial
Day for Taylor County,
dropping as much as seven
inches of rain in some
places.
While the 2012 Atlantic
Hurricane Season doesn't
officially begin until Friday,
Beryl was the second named
system of the year and the
first to make landfall.
The storm came ashore
just after midnight Monday
morning near Jacksonville
Beach with maximum
sustained winds of 70 mph,
just below the threshold
of a hurricane. Once on
shore, the system began to
weaken, eventually being
downgraded to a tropical
depression.
Taylor County was under
a tropical storm warning
and a flood watch for
much of Monday. As the
rain continued, the flood
watch was upgraded to a
warning, with the National
Weather Service (NWS) in
Tallahassee urging residents
to be prepared for flooding
in low-lying areas and rising
creeks and streams.
Around 3 a.m. Tuesday,
NWS issued a flash-flood
warning for the Salem and
Tennille areas in Taylor
County lasting two hours.
Despite the warnings, no


flooding was reported to
Taylor County Emergency
Management, with
Coordinator Stephen
Spradley saying many of
the areas he examined were
already dry by Tuesday
morning.
Travis McCoy with Foley
Timber and Land Co. said
staff reports indicated six
to seven inches of rain fell
in Perry and eastern Taylor
County while western
portions of the county
received considerably less--
in the 1.5 to two-inch range.
"The (San Pedro) Bay
seems to have gotten
a substantial amount.
Lafayette County had 10 to
10.5 inches," he said.
The NWS station at Perry-
TFoley Airport reported 4.26
inches of rain from Beryl.
An unofficial rain gauge
in Steinhatchee measured
the same amount while one
north of Perry reported 4.75
inches. Weather watcher
Calvin Ross reported nearly
five inches off Foley Cut-
Off.
The county received
little wind from Beryl,
with the airport reporting
a top sustained winds of
16 mph with a gust of 26
mph. Winds along the coast

Tropical Storm Beryl dropped as much as seven inches of much-needed
rain in some parts of Taylor County. While the water drained away quite
quickly once the rain stopped Tuesday morning, the residents at the City
Duck Pond had significantly more room in which to swim after the arrival of
Beryl (bottom photo) than before (top photo).

Members of the Perry Garden Club recently placed a bird bath on the
grounds surrounding the club to honor longtime member Inez Cone.
Gathering to say "We miss you!" were (from left) Co-Presidents Doris
Lepoma and Tuckie Maultsby, Carlyen Grant, Vivian Sheffield and Judy
Nowlin.


Missing Inez!

Garden Club honors her service


Inez Cone was honored after the final
meeting of the Perry Garden Club's 2011-
12 year on May 16 when officers and
members placed a birdbath in her honor.
Cone recently relocated to St. Simons
Island, Ga.. She was a former president of
the club (1992-1995) and life member. She


was also instrumental in many
flower/design shows, and served as an
accredited judge.
The Lantana Garden Club was federated
in 1929; the Daisy Garden Club was
federated in 1936. The two merged to form
the Perry Garden Club in 1961.


'Team Emily' plans yard sale, car wash, 2 raffles


Wide-ranging benefit
activities have been
scheduled in honor of
Emily Coker, the 11-year-
old daughter of Travis and
Teresa Coker who has been
battling a kidney disorder
for more than nine years.
"She has been in the
hospital multiple times, and
that has almost become a
way of life for the Cokers,"
said Libby Denmark for
Cornerstone Fellowship
Church which has pitched
in to come up with creative


fund-raising activities.
"Emily was admitted to
Shands for 12 days just this
Easter and it was the
hospital's recommendation
that she go to the Mayo
Clinic in Rochester, Minn.,
for testing so they can best
diagnose and treat the
disorder"
To assist with those costs,
Denmark says "a gigantic
yard sale is planned for
Saturday, June 9, at the
Fairpoint lot across from
City Hall.


"Donations maybe
dropped off at the
Cornerstone offices located
inside the Capital City Bank
building."
A car wash will also be
held the same day across
the street from the yard sale.
Raffle tickets are being
offered for 100 gallons of
gas donated by Ware Oil.
Tickets are also being
offered for a one-hour photo
shoot by Photos by Kirah,
which includes all photos
on CD, the copyright


release, and an 11x14
portrait.
Winners will be
announced June 9 at the
yard sale," Denmark added.
For the fisherman,
Rocky's and Warrior
Charters is hosting a trout
tournament to benefit Emily
on Saturday, June 16.
Registration is $40 per
two-person team. You may
register at Rocky's, Radio
Shack, Cornerstone or
www.rockyscampground.
com. There will be three


different ways to win (with
prizes for largest trout,
largest redfish, and largest
five-trout limit, measuring
15 to 20 inches.)
Additional information
on all of these fundraisers,
including complete
tournament details, as well
as updates on Emily's


condition can be seen on the
"Team Emily" Facebpok
page.

In spring jamboree game



'Dogs defeat defending champs 21-7


By AARON PORTWOOD
The Taylor County
Bulldogs will ride a big
wave of momentum into the
offseason after dominating
defending Class 2A state
champion North Florida
Christian (NFC), 21-7 in
a spring jamboree game
Friday night in Tallahassee.
Bulldogs' first-year Head
Coach Ryan Smith's offense

to allow reserves to close
out the final 12 minutes
of play (also won by the
Bulldogs, 7-0).
Taylor County's victory
was made even more
impressive considering
the Bulldogs were playing
without four defensive
starters due to grades or
injuries, and star wide
receiver Moral Stephens
left the game with an ankle
injury after catching just

then turned to the ground
game and outstanding
defense to control the ball
and grind out an impressive
win over a NFC program
that has won seven state
championships since 1996.
Both teams played first
string players for three
quarters (won by Taylor
County, 14-7), before the
scoreboard was reset to 0-0


two passes for 18 yards.
However, one of
Stephens' two catches was
a 15-yard TD reception that
beat double coverage and
gave the Bulldogs a 7-0
lead with 4:37 remaining in
the first quarter. Stephens
hobbled off the field after
the score and spent the rest
of the game with his ankle
wrapped in ice.

Chance Rodgers,

Smyrnios, Jacques Freeman
and Art Nelson combined
to help the Bulldogs rush
50 times for 252 yards,
averaging over 5.0 yards
per carry running behind
offensive linemen Taylor
Bethea, Andrew McBride,
Jake Mathis, Jacob Thomas
and Derek Thompson.
Meanwhile, Defensive
Coordinator Beau Johnson's
defense held NFC to just
76 yards on 35 carries (2.2
yards per carry) and to only
239 total yards while forcing
4 turnovers, including a 20-
yard interception return for
a touchdown by Chris Davis
in the fourth quarter to cap
the scoring.
"Overall, it was a good
night for us. We still have a
long way to go to be a great
football team, but this was
definitely a good start. It is
one thing to win games you
should win, but learning
how to win big games
against top-notch programs
is another," Smith said.
"Even though this was
a jamboree game, beating
a very successful program
like NFC is a big win for
Taylor County. NFC is a
very good football team that
is used to winning. Beating
them is a big momentum
boost for us heading into
summer workouts and next
season," Smith added.

without any one star player.
It is also a big reminder to
all of our players to put in

Smith said.
NFC drove 50 yards on
the opening possession of
the game before Davis Helm
knocked away a 4th down
pass to halt the drive at the
Bulldogs' 25-yard line.
Taylor put together a
12-play, 75-yard drive that
started with a three-yard
screen pass to Stephens
and capped by Stephens'
highlight reel touchdown
catch on a perfect fade pass
from QB Daniel Wentworth
(12of 21,127 yards,2TDs).
On Taylor's opening
drive, Jake Smyrnios (17
carries, 65 yards) had three
runs for 15 yards,Aaron Bell
caught a pair of passes for 3
yards, Jaymonte McLeod
(5 catches, 29 yards) had
an 11-yard reception and
Chance Rodgers (2 catches,
70 yards) made a clutch
9-yard reception.
Stephens, the Bulldogs'
6-3, 200 lb. receiver who
has already received offers
from numerous Division I
colleges, picked up two big
first downs by drawing a pair
of 15-yard pass interference
penalties on long passes.

Chris Davis nailed the
PAT to give the Bulldogs a
7-0 lead with 4:37 left in the
1st quarter.
Calub Murphy, Evan
Grambling, Tyler Evans
and Helm combined to help
force a 3-and-out on the
Eagles' next possession.
Some hard-nosed running
up the middle by Smymios
and an 8-yard scramble by
Wentworth set up a short
pass to Rodgers, who broke
two tackles and turned on
the afterburners down the
sideline for a 61-yard TD
catch.
Davis' extra point kick
gave the Bulldogs a 14-0
lead late in the first quarter.
The Bulldog defense
shut down the Eagles on
the next two series, forcing
three straight 3-aid-outs;
as Darick Ward and Tyler
Evans blew up a 2nd down


run for a 2-yard loss to kill
one drive and Jamarcus
Robertson, Evans and
Murphy dropped Eagle
runningback Jonathan
Vickers for a loss to start the
next drive.
Murphy (5-10, 195 lbs:)
had a big game, making
another unassisted tackle
for a loss that forced a punt
from NFC's own 8-yard
line.
After the Bulldogs failed
to pick up a first down, NFC
pulled within 14-7 thanks to
a 38-yard pass that set up -

with 7:33 remaining in the
half.

Shawn Burney, Alex

preserved the win.
"I want to first thank
Coaches David Gray,
Joseph Proenza, Jimmy
Blair and Ed Harvey for
their outstanding work with
their positions during spring
practice. I think our coaches
did a fantastic job. I am so
proud of all the Bulldogs,
but especially our defense,"
Defensive Coordinator
Beau Johnson said.
"Two weeks ago our kids
on the defensive side of the
ball were a little down. I
just told them to keep their
heads up. Last week in the
Orange-Blue game we saw
that fire and intensity, and
against NFC they were
lights out!
"I give all the credit to
the kids. They were tired
of hearing about NFC's
hurry-up offense, how
explosive they were and
how bad we played during
the scrimmages in Madison.
They came out and played


with their hair on fire. Our
entire defensive unit played
together with heart and
confidence. I am so happy
for them," Johnson added.
"Our defensive line was
dominant, with Tyler Evans
and Darick Ward putting
constant pressure on the
NFC front. Calub Murphy
and Evan Grambling did a


greatjob at inside linebacker.
Luke Kallschmidt was lights
out at outside linebacker,
and our secondary, led by
Marcus Hamilton and Davis
Helm, played awesome.
Needless to say, I slept
well Friday for the first
time in a month," Johnson
stated.
"These players are like


our children. When they
are down it hurts our hearts.
To see their smiles Friday

WWII veterans were greeted with an old
fashioned Mail Call when they arrived
Washington, D.C.
"I am aware that your heroism and
devotion to duty has allowed me to
enjoy my life in the greatest nation
on this planet. You didn't know you
were fighting for me during The War,
but you were. And I appreciate it
more than words in a letter might
convey..."
--Mark Palmer


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Managing Editor
When the state of North
Carolina orchestrated its
eighth and final honorary
event for veterans of World
War II in April of this
year, there was a notable
Floridian in the group.
Ned Brafford of Perry.
"They contacted my twin
brother, Hal, in Chapel Hill,
and told him about this
plane flight to Washington
for a day honoring veterans.
He told them, 'I'll go if
you'll let me bring my twin
brother.'"
After all, they served
together during the war, in
some of the most horrific
battles in this nation's
history.
Omaha Beach Head, Oct.
23, 1944.
Jersey Isles, Nov. 28-Dec.
6, 1944.
The Battle of the Bulge,
Dec. 17,1944.
Siegfried Line, Feb. 8,
1945.
Roer Crossing, Feb. 27,
1945.
Remagen (Rhine) March
13, 1945.
Defense of FUSA, April
15, 1945.
That's how Brafford's
service summary reads. He
carefully and thoughtfully
shows the three battle stars
he received for Rhineland,
Ardennes and Central
Europe.
r "We were drafted into the
U.S. Army at the same time
in 1943--the day we turned
18, Brafford remembers,
explaining that there was no
room for discussion. "We
graduated high school at age
16, and I was in my second
year of working for Duke
Power Company. But when
. the draft notice arrived,
none of that mattered."
The two Braffords were
in the same outfit together
for their entire three years of
service. He admits, "There
were numerous attempts
to send one of us or the
other somewhere different,
but we'd always go to our
officers and request that
they either send us both,
or keep us both. And they
did."
d- Brafford recently spent
in about 10 days in Chapel Hill
with his twin, during which
time they met with other
veterans for an orientation
about the trip. "They had
girls dressed up like the
Andrews Sisters, singing
'Don't Sit Under the Apple
Tree' and other songs from
our time," he said, shaking
his head and admitting,
"They did a really good job


of organizing this thing."
Each was presented
a rain poncho, shirt and
hat emblazoned with the
"Triangle Flight of Honor"
(the triangle consisting of
Chapel Hill, Raleigh and
Durham).
"We're all about 88 years
old," Brafford said, noting
that 134 veterans made the
trip. Brafford and his twin,
however, are a mere 87, with
a July birthday bringing
another candle to the cake.
"But don't rush it," he said.
"There was a total of
188 on the trip, including
volunteers from the state,
and those who helped
anyone crippled or needing
a wheelchair."
"What a day," he says,
thinking back.
"When we landed, they
flanked our plane with
firetrucks and sprayed water
up over the plane, where it
formed a rainbow. It was
something to see."
The group then toured
U.S. Air Force Memorial,
the U.S. Navy Museum,
the World War II Memorial,
the USMC Silent Drill
Performance, the Iwo Jima
Memorial and the changing
of the guard at Arlington
National Cemetery.
"We got the royal
treatment," he admits.
"When we returned, it
was about eight o'clock at
night. They had students
from the area--with their
parents--gathered to cheer
us--a Heroes' Welcome
Home Celebration. There
were eight or 10 thousand
people there," he said,
including a 25-piece
bagpipe band, the North
Carolina National Color
Guard, the Rolling Thunder,
Patriot Guard, "and even
the University of North
Carolina Marching Band.
Can you believe that?"
he asked. "They were all
congratulating us, saluting
us and thanking us forour
service.
"You know how you get
off a plane and walk down
to the terminal, well people
were shaking our hands,
patting us on the back and
saluting. They really made
a big deal out of us, and I
don't mind telling you, I got
all choked up.
"Then they had a Mail
Call," Brafford said, "just
like we used to. I had a
big bag of letters and notes,
from U.S. senators, school
children and even my
family. They had contacted
my family without my

At orientation for the Flight of Honor, Hal and
Ned Brafford were greeted by a framed, life-
size photograph of the two in their U.S. Army
uniforms.

"Please tell them all, 'Thank you.'
Great people that built a great
nation."
--William Morris

Volunteers joined veterans during a tour of
Washington landmarks.
"Our family would like to say thank
you for your service to our country
during World War II. The sacrifice
that you made 70 years ago is what
allows us to enjoy the freedom that we
have today..."
--Angela, Brian and Casey Wilson
(granddaughter and family)


The average age of WWII veterans on the trip
was 88 years old.
"You have helped me learn that life
is not only about looking out for our
own self but to look out for others..."
--Jacob Michael Montgomery, student


After the war, Ned, left, landed his first job in the gas business in
Charlotte, N.C., in 1948. His continued success in the company led
him to '"open shop" in Perry.


"Not many can say they fought in The Battle of the
Bulge, marched across the countryside of Europe,
slept in the snow on the ground and fought the
German Nazis. The suffering you witnessed at such
a young age of the persecuted Jewish men, women and
children must have been awful.
"It was during that time that you met my mother
when you were in the town of Verviers, Belgium.
After the war, you returned to the U.S. and worked
for a whole 'year so you could send Hom the money
for her to come to the U.S. and be 'our wife. She
left her family and traveled by ship for 17 days
to be with you.
"We are so happy that you are still with us and
able to make this trip to Washington, D.C., to
finally see the tribute our country has made in 'our
honor..."
Linda Brafford) and Izz''y Rommes,
daughter and son-in-law

"As a history buff, I probably appreciate more and
understand more about World War II than most. I
understand what sacrifices were made by you and many
others for the freedom and democracy of Europe. I
also understand the sacrifices that were made here b.'
many families. It has always been a proud parL of
me to be able to tell others of your journey through
Belgium and the Black Forest..."

BRAFFORD TWINS
Continued from page 1
knowledge and they all
wrote notes to me."
He picked up one from
a young student he will
probably never meet,
addressed to Ned Pharr
Brafford. "Thank you for
all you did for our country.
We wouldn't be living like
we are today if it wasn't for
vnnl "


but he didn't pass the
physical so they moved him
to McDill Field in Tampa
where he worked."
When the Braffords went
to war, they really went to
war. If pressed, Ned recalls
the worst battle of all, the
Battle of the Bulge. "I
wondered if we were going
to get through this," he
said. "There was 30 inches
of snow on the ground and
the tnrcksw wouldn't even


The two Braffords were in the same outfit
together for their entire three years of service


. And another from a
teacher he may never know.
"We've raised our children
to understand the sacrifices
their grandparents made for
them. Thank you for all you
did."
And another, from Susan
Snow Brafford, who is
married to his son, Rick.
"I am so proud of you,
and to be a part of your
family."
Brafford's family was
deeply entrenched in
World War II. In addition
to service rendered by the
twins, they had an older
brother who served at the
same time. "We ran into
him once while we were
in Europe," Brafford said,
somberly. "We took our
mess kits and ate supper
together."
Brafford's mother died
when he was 12, so his
grandmother raised the
boys and one older sister.
"She watched me and my
twin go off to war, and
my older brother. My
daddy--who was 39 and
single--was an ace mechanic


pull the guns. That was the
worst," he says, and that's
enough remembering.
The Brafford Twins were
attached to the 563rd Anti-
Aircraft Battalion, serving
with the 9th U.S. Army,
the 1st U.S. Army, the 49th
AAA Brigade, the XVIII
Corps (AB), the III Corps,
the llth AAA Group, the
16th AAA Group, the 103rd
AAA group and the VII
Corps.
While he and his brothers
were serving their country
overseas, their grandfather
died. "I never will forget
my grandmother telling
me that her daughter had
a house with steam heat,
and she was thinking about
closing out her house and
going to live with her
daughter. I told her to
do it, that we'd find some
place to stay when we
returned."
They ended up with their
sister, Hazel, and Brafford's
niece recalled the magic and
the madness in her letter to
the two. "When Uncle Hal,
Uncle Ned and Uncle Bob


returned from the war, they
moved in with my Mother,
Hazel, their only sister,
five years older. She and
my Dad had no problem
. with my loving--but a little
crazy--uncles staying with
us and starting their lives
over. 'Crazy' means that
they picked on me all the
time--I guess because I was
five years old and they loved
me. We all had a great time
and space never seemed to
be a problem.
"We had a small,
two-bedroom house with
one bathroom. There
was my mom and daddy,
my grandmother (father's
mother) and myself, so my
uncles slept on the sofas and
cots in the living room. We
had a large dining room table
so there was no problem
eating, and those boys liked
to eat! There would always
be a big dinner and then they
would all play cards around
that same table. Only
problem? My grandmother
would stand behind them
and give away what was in
their hands. But everyone
was nice and polite (no
harsh language) and we all
enjoyed homemade fudge
or banana pudding
afterwards.
"I remember those days
and will never forget them.
And, by the way, they never
stopped picking on me--I
guess they still love me.
They were my family and I
loved them. I always will."
--Anne
The 'letters from the
Mail Call speak volumes
about service and honor,
about family ties and love
shared.
"This was the final
Triangle Flight of Honor,"
Brafford said, admittedly
glad he made the trip.
"They're running out of
people," he then added with
a knowing laugh.
"But I won't forget the
banner at the airport that
night when we got back. It
said, 'It's never too late to
say Thank You: thank you
for serving our country with
courage and honor, as 'the
greatest generation.'"


"As someone who defended our country, many people are
indebted to you. As your son, I am also indebted to
you. The things I have learned from you growing up and
the times we spent together will always be special to
me..."
--Rick Brafford, son

+++
"You do not know me, ,but I am one of millions of
Americans who will forever be in debt to you and to
the brave men and women who served with you in our
armed services during World War II. Every time I hear
the 'Star Spangled Banner' and the fight songs of the
different branches of the military, I think of how
brave and selfless the men and women were who fought for
the freedoms we enjoy in America today. Our gratitude
for your sacrifice for our country can never be repaid
or overstated..."

Senators should vote 'no' on LOST


Dear Editor:
Please let the citizens
know about this current
issue: another threat to our
sovereignty, resources and
national security.
The Law of the Sea Treaty
(LOST) has been around
for years, but has never
been ratified by the Senate.
It has reared its ugly head
again and citizens need to
contact their senators (Bill
Nelson and Marco Rubio)
and tell them to vote "no"
on ratification of this treaty.
LOST is before the
Senate now and is really
being pushed. Why? This
treaty will move the world
into the clutches of global
governance. This is the
United Nations treaty


which will control the seas
of the world, including
the mineral, oil, gas and
other riches of the sea.
Think about our fishing and
fisheries. Not only will we
lose our sovereignty, but
will be mandated to pay
large fees and profit sharing
with the UN. The sole
decision on whether or not
to grant or withhold drilling
permits will be in the hands
of the UN. The United
States must also share our
drilling technology with
other countries.
Especially alarming is
Article 314 of LOST, where
it states that terms of the
treaty may be changed
significantly and the United
States would have to abide

by those changes without
the opportunity to consent to
the changes. Once the Law
of the Sea has been ratified,
the United States can not be
released from it unless 1)
the other 162 nations agree
and sign for our release or
2) we have a'constitutional
amendment.
The whole concept puts
the United Stated in the
noose of another global
organization in which the
U.S. has only the same
one vote as Cuba and
other communist countries.
Foreign nations will be able
to come into our brackish
waters.
Locally our coastline
waters are not deep and
the large ships (military,
commercial and private)
would stay well offshore,
but what about smaller
vessels? Some of Florida's
coastline could have foreign
military ships right off the
beaches.
This is another issue
where Americans who
cherish liberty need to take
action.
