SJohn Dickert, who recently toured France, said the quote, "Soldiers'
graves are the greatest preachers of peace," came to mind when visiting
the World War II American cemetery at Omaha Beach.


Sculptor Anilore Banon created this memorial entitled "Les Braves"
for France. It is located on Omaha Beach in honor of the brave American
soldiers who died there.


Tour prompts reflections

of June 6 D-Day invasion


Editor's Note: Today-June
6-marks the 68th anniversary
of D-Day. A recent trip to
France prompted former Perry
resident John Dickert to share
the following reflections of that
historic World War II invasion
with us.
While on a recent trip to
France, my wife and I spent
time in the city of Bayeux
in the Normandy region
and visited several nearby
D-Day sites. We were
touched by the warmth of
the people of this region as
well as the poignant beauty
of the memorials, gardens
and D-Day cemeteries.
Since the June 6 anniversary


is at hand, we wanted to
share a bit of what we've
experienced with others.
The American Sectoir is
divided between Omaha and
Utah beaches, with Omaha
having the most important
sites for visitors, including
the American Cemetery. We
decided to focus our time
on Omaha Beach. Its war
museum provides realistic
scenarios of the war and an
excellent film allowing one
to step for a moment back in
time. Still e\istirig bunkers,
rusted battle remains on
the beach and the museum
remind of the sacrifice of the
thousands who died there.


Water restrictions


in effect June 13


The Suwannee River
Water Management District
(District) Governing Board
voted last week to adopt a
Phase Ill Water Shortage
Ordev in response to
extreme drought conditions.
The order, which requires
water use restrictions for
all users, will go into effect
Wednesday, June 13, the
day after the board's next
meeting.
Under the water shortage
order, restrictions and some
exemptions, will apply to
residential, agricultural,
commercial and industrial
users within the district's
boundaries. This includes
Taylor County as well as
Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist,
Hamilton, Lafayette,
Madison, Suwannee


and Union counties, and
portions of Alachua, Baker,
Bradford, Jefferson, Levy
and Putnam counties.
"Drought conditions
have prompted the need to
enact water use restrictions
to reduce demands for
water and stretch our
water supplies during the
drought," said District
Acting Executive Director
Charlie Houder.
District representative
Tim Sagul addressed the
Taylor County Commission
Monday evening,
requesting the county
approve an ordinance

hours of release


Questions regarding the
validity of an out-of-state
detainer led to the release
to a convicted felon who
walked out of the Taylor
County Jail and broke into
a storage shed at the sports
complex on U.S. Highway
19 North shortly thereafter.
Phillip Wayne Richards,
39, completed an eight-
year term with the Florida
Department of Corrections
(FDOC) Friday, June 1.
However, rather than
being released, Richards
was transferred to the
Taylor County Jail to await
extradition to Kentucky
where he faced additional
prison time for a subsequent
conviction.
During a first appearance
before County Judge


Phillip Richards'

Saturday, questions arose
regarding the detainer's

THINKING OUT LOUD 0 6 O

By RAY EVANS OF, ""'0TIC %NW .


Save Humans, Not Mice


thing should be protected in
order to avoid its extinction.
That's a nice, warm thought,
but it is against the laws
of nature. Science and
the Bible agree that all or
most other creatures existed
before humans came onto
the scene. We are told by
experts who study such
things that thousands of
species of living things
came into existence then
became extinct long before
humans were created. That
is the natural process. I
believe that a Creator was
and is in charge of nature,
but even if you don't
believe that you should be
able to see that coming into
existence, existing for a
time then becoming extinct
is nature's way. Ask me
about nature's effects on our
strongest ships and I can tell
you a few stories. You can't
defeat nature.
In 1995 eightfemale Texas
cougars were imported to
interbreed with the eight or
so known Florida panthers
in an effort to prevent their
extinction At that time I
believe we were spending
about $1 million per year
per panther, tracking them,


protecting them, etc. Now,
Texas cougars and Florida
panthers are close cousins,
but they are not the same.
That means that within a
few years after that action
there were no true Florida
panthers left. Still, we
spend many dollars to
preserve them. Why? If
they can be interbred with
Texas cougars, why not ship
them all to Texas where they
can thrive?
Some time ago the
website floridapanter.org
had a very informative
statement about the Florida
panthers. Basically, it said
they should be preserved
because they existed.
Other groups are just as
blindly enthusiastic about
snakes, mice, butterflies
and numerous other critter.
Every one of them wants
some of your money to
support their efforts. I
wrote recently about a state
employee who is paid to
hunt for tiny, rare butterflies
in the Florida keys.
Consider manatees,
certainly in short supply
here, but plentiful in other
, Please see page 8


I have a suggestion for
the Republicans in Congress
who are struggling to slow
the flow of our tax dollars
down the drain. The
Endangered Species' Act
*(ESA) seems ripe for review.
SHow many times have
you read or seen news
about some project greatly
beneficial to humans but
potentially threatening to
mice, minnows or other
critters, being delayed at
great cost or being canceled
because of the ESA? In
California growers were
denied permission to plant
hew crops because of the
ESA; I believe they had to
divert their irrigation water
for the benefit of a small
fish. Farmers' income was
reduced and many migrant
workers were denied
employment by that action.
Some years ago an existing,
giant dam was threatened
with stoppage of electricity
generation because of
the existence of a small,
minnow-like fish near its
inside base. Cutting off
our electricity creates major
problems.

iovers think every living

Midweek Muddle


The uniform
B: "UA:-: H,- '_'-. A .. -, . .- -.~ .., .. -'."'L .'.',
.By ." ". I, C,.

By SUSAN H. LINCOLN


When the rains from Tropical
Storm Beryl finally reached
Taylor County and began to
soothe the scorched earth, I
grabbed my glasses and my
scissors, my photographs and
my stationery, and proceeded
to catch.up on projects which
only get attention when there's.
bad weather on the horizon.
I mailed prints to friends, near
and far, and wrote letters to
California and North Carolina,
filed tax documents and glued
a vase back together.
At the conclusion of my very
productive day, I sank down
upon the couch to enjoy the
album of pictures which began
in the spring of 2010.
My smile gradually waned as
I turned the pages and realized
I've been wearing the same
striped top for every picture in
the past two years.
There I was at prom, with
the son in 2010, wearing
watermelon stripes and white
capris.
There I am on my
birthday. Same shirt.
There I am with my
college friends, later in the
summer. Same outfit.
There I am the next spring
with the aunts. Same with
slacks.
There I am on Father's Day,
2011, in stripes. Same with
shorts.
And in April of 2012, 1 am at
the Masters' Golf Tournament
in a shirt that has seen more
action than Tiger Woods.
How is that possible?
Following prodding from
my friends, my closet is now
organized by colors, but my
brain is still organized by the
events of the day. Is it raining?
Do I have to go to the grocery
store after work? Can I stand
these shoes all day? Is my hair
too short for this top, or do I
look anemic in that one?
Even though I have clothes
for work, clothes for play, and
clothes for cleaning, I have
found myself resorting to
"the uniform"--that would be
the outfit which can take me
places outside the office and
the grocery store. It goes on
vacation, out to eat, down to
the beach, shopping and sits


around a birthday cake. I now
need to re-think that policy.
Or perhaps I'm overreacting?
In response to that question, I
developed a litmus test. The
husband would probably notice
if I wasn't wearing any clothes,
but it's doubtful he notices
what I am wear-ig,---- - --
So I handed him the album
with these instructions: "Tell
me which shirt I should never
wear again for a photograph."
He began looking at the
album and I saw him smiling,
too--turning pages and
remembering landmarks within
the family. He would deny it,.
but he was smiling.
I saw it.
Then he chuckled a bit. I
thought it was a happy memory.
Then he laughed out loud and
I became a more than a little bit
curious.
Finally, he said, "You've got
to burn that shirt."
I was stunned.
Then he asked the question of
the century, "Didn't you wear it
last week too?"
"Why yes, I did...on
Wednesday," I said.
I didn't know whether to
be awestruck by his memory,
or horrified by my own
redundancy.
Years ago, I remember
shaking my head and laughing
at my mother who would
consult previous family reunion
pictures to determine what
she wore for the group photo
then so she wouldn't repeat the
outfit for the upcoming event.
I thought it was so silly.
And, yet, here I am.
I like the striped top--
obviously. I've worn it at
every high point between 2010
and 2012. But in addition to
my personal preference for
this shirt, it also stands as
a testament to good quality
clothing which can span two
years with only slight wear and
tear. Or that's my story and
I'm sticking to it.
I'll wear it again-- I know I
will--but not on a day when a
picture is scheduled.
Which just means one thing: I
need to go shopping.
The husband never saw that
one coming.

Water restriction violators to face criminal charges?


WATER SHORTAGE
Continued from page 1
well as ensuring local law
enforcement assistance in
enforcing water restriction
orders issued by the district
in response to droughts.
Questioned by the
commission, Sagul pointed
out that Florida Statutes
and Florida Administrative
Code already give the
district the ability to issue
water orders and require
local law enforcement and
governments to assist in
enforcing those orders, The
district plans to monitor those
who have been issued water
use permits and will rely on
local law enforcement for
other water users, including
residential users.
County, Attorney Conrad
Bishop asked why the
district is asking for such
an ordinance when state law
already compels locals to


assist the district.
Sagul said the proposed
ordinance would lessen the
prescribed penalties set forth
in statutes, which declare
violations a second degree
misdemeanor.
Under the proposed
language, violators would
receive a verbal warning on
the first offense, a formal
warning on the second, a
$25 fine on the third, a $50
fine on the fourth and a fine
not to exceed $500 and/or
imprisonment in the county
jail not to exceed 60 days
for fifth and subsequent
offenses.
Sagul .said the intent was
to decriminalize the offenses
and" rely on "education" to
help curb violations.
Bishop responded by
pointing out that state
law supersedes a' county
ordinance and local
governments cannot
implement penalties that are


less severe than those set by
the state.
The commission voted to
table the issue until Bishop
had to time to discuss his
concerns with representatives
from the district,
According to district
officials, the 12 months
ending April 30 had the
lowest rainfall total of' all
May-April periods since
1932, and the 12-month
deficit rose to 17.1 inches at
the end of April.
On May 15, flow rates
at the Econfina River near
Perry and the Steinhatchee
River near Cross City were
in the lowest two percent
of all daily, seven-day and
365-day average 'flows, at
gauges with continuous data

Murphy said.
Murphy opted for a
further review of the case
and returned Sunday to
order that Richards be
released.
"But I was contacted
later in the day and told that
the information. regarding
the detainer had been
straightened out so I ordered
him to be picked up and
taken back into custody.""'
According to the timeline

Richards was released
Sunday at 2:45 p.m. and
was returned to custody at
7:15 pmn.
"He (Richards) left
the jail walking, so we
contacted the FDOC K-9
squad who tracked him
from the jail to the area of
the sports complex, The
K-9s led us to a storage shed
where the work crews keep
some of their equipment
and discovered that it ha&
been broken into.. .Richards
was then tracked to the
west side of the complex
(near the baseball fields)
and was arrested without
occurrence," Taylor County
Sheriff's "Office (TCSO)


Capt. Richard Johnson
said.
"He. is now facing new
charges here of burglary,
criminal,, mischief .and
tampering with evidence."
Officers found eight packs
of cigarettes in Richards'
possession at the time of his
arrest.
"He didn't have those
when he left the jail,"
Johnson noted.
According to FDOC
records, Richards has been
in and out of prison on' a
regular basis- since 1993
on a string of felonies that
included multiple arrests
for grand theft (dwelling,
firearm and motor vehicle).

France on June 6,1944.
D-Day Beaches
Along the 75 miles
of Atlantic coast north
of Bayeux, France are
the WWII museums,
monuments, cemeteries,
and battle remains left in
tribute to the courage of
the British, Canadian and
American armies. These
armies successfully carried
out the largest military
operation in history. It was
on these beautiful beaches,
at the crack of dawn, June 6,
1944, that the Allies finally
gained a foothold in France
and the Nazi defenses started
to crumble."

An English information

is the 1956 letter from the

French still have for the

FWC considers draw down at Lake Miccosukee
"' *) ^


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) will
present a plan to restore fish
and wildlife habitats at Lake
Miccosukee and improve
boater access to the lake at a
public meeting in Monticello
on Tuesday, June 5.
The meeting will begin
at 6:30 p.m. at the Jefferson
County Court Annex, 435
W. Walnut Street. The lake
is primarily in Jefferson
County, with a small portion
in Leon County. FWC staff
will explain the agency's
plan to enhance fish and
wildlife habitats by drawing
down the waters of Lake
Miccosukee.
The project involves:
Exposing and drying the
lake bottom to consolidate
muck and decaying plants;
Scraping 18-24 inches of
muck from 25 acres of lake
bottom;
Performing prescribed
burning of woody tussocks
floating on the lake.
The Lake Miccosukee
Management Plan, adopted
in 1989 by the FWC
and other state and local
agencies, recommended
drying out the lake bottom
and restoring fish and
wildlife habitats every five
to seven years. However,


it has been almost 12 years
since the last drawdown.
"The FWC will mimic
what would occur naturally
during dry or drought years
at Lake Miccosukee,"
said Charles Mesing, lead
coordinator of the project,
who works for the FWC on
aquatic habitat conservation
and restoration.
"We will assist Mother


Nature by draining the lake,
drying but and consolidating
muck, and removing the
decaying plants that have
accumulated on the bottom,
which can reduce the water's
oxygen level.
"Lake Miccosukee is one
of several 'disappearing
lakes' with sinkholes in
north Florida that historically
become auite dry during


droughts. Currently, we are
experiencing a drought in.
the Panhandle, and Lakes
Miccosukee is down 3 to 4
feet. However, an earthen
dam built in the 1950s and
other manmade structures
artificially maintain the
lake's water level to provide
fishing, hunting and boating
opportunities."
The lake-restoration


project is scheduled to begin
in June andt be completed by
March 2013, when the FWC
will begin refilling the lake.
The project is being done
'in coordination with the
Florida Forest Service and
other agencies.
During the drawdown, the
lake should remain open to
fishing at the north section
near Reeves Fish Camp.

'Humans should be


at the top of the list'


THINKING OUT LOUD
Continued from page 2
places.
Why do we have to pay
or planes and personnel
Ito inventory them every
year? Couldn't they do that
every third or even fifth
year? Quite a bit of savings
,possible there.
!: Why do we see necropsies
Ion so many whales,
dolphins, manatees, etc.,
|hat have washed ashore
anId died? I've never seen


any reports telling us how
we benefitted from those
actions. They should be few
and far between.
The Endangered Species
Act was a feel-good law
with great unintended
consequences. It seems to
require the preservation of
every living thing except
humans.
I hope that someone in
Congress will be brave
enough to initiate some
drastic changes to the law,
based upon reason instead


of emotion. There will
be many cries oPf distress,
protests, etc., but'I happen
to believe that the rights
of humans are at the top
of the list of creatures who
should be protected from
extinction.
I doubt that many would
object to reasonable,
moderate efforts to prevent
harm to living creatures,
but the notion that we
can reverse the normal
processes of the forces of
nature is ridiculous.

Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley, or another cereal grain is a grain
product. Bread, pasta, oatmeal, breakfast cereals, tortillas, and grits are examples. Grains are divided into two
subgroups, whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel-the bran, germ, and
endosperm. People who eat whole grains as part of a healthy diet have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases


To make half your grains whole grains, substitute a
whole-grain product for a refined-grain product. For
example, eat 100% whole-wheat bread
or bagels instead of white bread or bagels, ,
or brown rice instead of white rice. ., .
