morning when another
vehicle pulled idto the path
of her motorcycle on U.S.

Sandra L. Burnham
was riding a 2002 Harley-
Davidson motorcycle east
on U.S. 19 around 9 a.m.,

Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper M.V. Fillyaw.
John Lewis Aman, 51,

the highway in a 1997
Chevrolet Camaro and
pulled into the eastbound
lanes of U.S. 19 to go west
"and pulled directly into the
path of [Bumham]," Fillyaw
said in the report.
The front of the
motorcycle collided with
the left front side of the
Camaro within the inside
lane of eastbound U.S. 19.
The motorcycle came to
rest on the north shoulder
of the highway in the

with no major wounds.
Kaleb Towles, 15, was
spear fishing with his

County approves

aerial spray for

mosquito control



continuing to plague
many areas of Taylor
County following Tropical
Storm Debby, county
commissioners agreed
Tuesday to conduct aerial
spraying over 129,000 acres
According to county
officials, they are hopeful
the spraying could begin
as early as Friday night
and expect it will take
three nights to cover the
contracted areas.
The county commission,
which held three emergency
'meetings this week to
extend its declaration of a
local state of emergency as
well as to discuss options
to supplement the county's
mosquito control efforts,
voted to authorize spending
up to $250,000 for the
aerial spraying with the
hope that the county will be
reimbursed by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA).
The spraying will be
conducted in nine zones
encompassing most of
the populated areas of
the county, including the
City of Perry, Eridu/Shady
Grove, Lake Bird, Aucilla
River Estates, Nutall Rise,
Econfina, Beaches, Salem
and Steinhatchee.
Taylor County Mosquito
Control has been receiving
between 150 and 200 calls
per day since the tropical
system dropped as much as
15 inches of rain, leaving
many areas with significant
amounts of standing water.
The resulting swarms
have left most local retailers
sold out of bug zappers and
foggers as they try to restock
their shelves, and mosquito
control awaiting additional
shipments of larvicide.
At the Tuesday afternoon
meeting, county officials
were still awaiting official

mosquito counts from the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
* The expected cost of
the spraying is around
$197,000 using an existing

state contract. If the'
county is approved for
reimbursement, FEMA
would pay back the county
87.5 percent of the cost,

Bug out!

With mosquitoes swarming across the county, the
Florida Department of Health (DOH) is offering a number
of suggestions for residents to remove potential breeding"
"The elimination of breeding sites is one of the keys to
prevention," officials said. -
The suggestions include:
Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes in those used in'
playgrounds to drain.
Turn over or remove empty plastic pots.
Pick up all beverage containers and cups.
Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may
collect water.
Pump out bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths and pet or other animal
feeding dishes at least once a week.
Change water in plant trays, including hanging plants,
at least once a week.

specialty pulp line returned
to production on June 23
while the fluff pulp line
began its start-up on July 4.
As of late last week,
production on the fluff
pulp line was operating
within normal ranges and
was producing fluff pulp
per quality standards.

Returning the fluff pulp
line to operation allows
the company to fully
optimize the product mix
on its specialty line. The
root cause of the drum
failure was identified by
the failure analysis team
and preventive actions have
been taken on both lines to

prevent reoccurrence.
Buckeye Chairman and
Chief Executive Qfficer
John Crowe stated, "Having
this. event behind up in,
less than three weeks is
an amazing demonstration
of the flexibility and
teamwork of the Buckeye
organization. It is in times

like this when you see
the strength and character
of your organization and
appreciate the valuable
partnerships that we have
with our contractors and
suppliers who have put
forth the extraordinary
effort to return the plant to
full operation."

'Misinformation' spreading

about Florida catch shares

Dear Editor:
Bill Kelly,' :with '.the,
Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's :' Association
(FKCFA) wrote an article in
which he says he is against
catch shares. This is ironic
because his organization
represents lobster fishermen
who: participate .in one
of the- largest catch share
programs in the Gulf. A
catch share is defined as a
form of a Limited Access
Privilege Program (LAPP).
Access to the lobster catch
share program could not be
more limited.
To harvest lobsters you
must purchase a federal
permit, traps, plus trap tags
from other fishermen for as
much as $100 per tag. You
would have to purchase
around three thousand tags
in order to make a decent
living. At $300.000 plus a
boat and, traps, it is almost-
impossible "" for, a small
fisherman to enter the lobster
catch share program. Not
unlike commodities, trap
tags are traded among large
lobster fishermen in hopes of
making huge profits, while
small lobster 'fishermen 'go
by the wayside. Saying the
Florida lobster fishery is not
a catch share program' is'
like saying a street is not a

catch share programs you

Council We,spent 'more

was then voted: in by
substantial participants in
the commercial fishery by
more than an 80 percent
margin. The grouper catch
share program has saved
many commercial fishermen
who were going out of
business. The old system of
an open fishery with derby
fishing occurring before the
commercial quota was filled
and the season closed down,
was unmanageable. No one
could make a living tied to
the dock.
Under the Gulf catch
share programs,the grouper/
snapper fishery is among the
most accountable fisheries
in the world. Before he
;leaves the dock,a fisherman
must notify NOAA of his'
departure and what he
intends to fish for. NOAA
then begins tracking his
vessel through a Vessel
Monitoring System (VMS).
If the fisherman ventures
intO a closed area, NOAA
.sees: it on the computer
and mails the owner a fine,
somewhere in the $5,000 to
$10,000 range. Before the
fisherman, returns, he must
make a three hour call-in

the American consumer in
the future.
One of the main
reasons catch shares have
become controversial
lately is because leaders
of organizations like the
FKCFA, and the National
Association of Charterboat
Operators (NACO)
are trying to convince
recreational fishermen that
not only are catch shares
bad, but they will be forced
on them. Nothing could
be further from the truth.
Catch shares are strictly
for the commercial'fishery.
They should not be used in
the recreational sector, and
no one is advocating that.
They won't even work in a
recreational fishery.
Congressman Steve
Southerland stated in a
recent Op-ed that catch
shares are being forced on
recreational fishermen. He
is a recreational 'fisherman
that has been brainwashed
by these two organizations.
Perhaps Southerland should
read the NOAA Catch
Share Policy, which clearly
states that NOAA, "does
not advocate the use of
individual private angler
catch shares."
Leaders of these two
organizations think they
have to stir up controversy
so they can justify their
jobs. They are probably
right. Who would join
'an organization and give
money if there was nothing
to fight for? In Michael
Crichton's book... A State
of Fear..., he describes how
these types of organizations
create a state of fear so
people will send them
money. FKCFA and NACO
are perfect examples.
The head of FKCFA,
a commercial fishing
,organization, is not even a
commercial fisherman. The
head of NACO, a charter
boat fishing organization, is'
only a part-time charterboat
captain, but hey, don't take
my word for it, read the
review by Rick T. from
Columbus Ga. Just google:
Bob Zales and Rick T. Very
interesting reading!

Last aerial spraying was in 2008

The word mosquito
comes from "mosca,"
Spanish and Portuguese
for"little fly.'
There are more than
4,000 different kinds of
mosquitoes and a
worldwide population
of 100 trillion.
There are approximately
70 different species of
mosquitoes in Florida.
Mosquitoes can fly up to
10 mph, dart between
raindrops and even fly

leaving around $25,000.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services (FDACS) is
expected to conduct its

own mosquito spraying, but
Hinkel said Tuesday that it
would be at least seven to 10
days before spraying could
begin here.
He added that only Taylor
and Colombia counties were
the only ones ready to begin

spraying and state officials
were waiting until all of the
affected counties were ready.
If the commission waited
for FDACS, there would be
no upfront cost to the county,
but commissioners said
Tuesday that the mosquito

problem constituted an
emergency, saying they
wanted to move forward.
The state last conducted
aerial mosquito spraying
in September 2008 after
Tropical Storm Fay dropped
18 inches on the county.

At that time, however, the
state did not contact county
officials prior to the exercise,
resulting in several areas
being left out of the spraying
and a number of residents
calling law enforcement to
report low-flying planes.

New teachers possible

due to funding increase

Continued from page 1
Paul Dyal, the positions
were made possible by the
projected increase in local
ad valorem tax revenues
due to a jump in tangible
tax values in the county as
well as an 'increase in state
education funding.
In addition to the
elective positions, the
board also agreed Thursday
to establish two teacher
positions at Perry Primary
School, which Dyal said
*were necessary to meet state

class size mandates due to
an increase in enrollment at
the school for next year.
Last year, Dyal asked
the school board to
consider an ad valorem
tax increase to cover the
cost of transportation as
well as returning art and
music electives to grades
kindergarten through fifth.
In early June, however,
Dyal said he was
backing away from his
recommendation in light of

"The bites were
exceptionally minor. The
victim only had a couple of
scratches on his chest. We
are ecstatic that the young
man wasn't badly hurt, but
we would have liked for
them to call us (the FWC)
to take care of the gator,"
FWC's representative Karen
Parker said Tuesday.
"We don't want anyone
getting hurt. Our main
concern is that we definitely
don't want anyone trying to
subdue an alligator or kill an
alligator, or capture a gator.
They are very strong, very
fast and can really injure
or kill someone. We simply
don't want that to happen."
She added, "Killing an
alligator without a permit
is against the law, however
we are not going after these
folks. But, residents need to
be aware that FWC deals
with contracted alligator
trappers who go out once an
alligator has been recognized
as a nuisance. These trappers
are authorized to go out and
get the gator."

FWC: gators more active

during warmer weather

Alligators are active
during the warm-weather
months, and there's a good
chance that people who live
around water will encounter
these native creatures.
Call the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Nuisance
Alligator Hotline at
866-FWC-GATOR (392-
4286) to report any alligator
you believe poses a threat to
people, pets or property.
Here are some tips people
can use to stay safer around
Be aware of the
possibility of alligators
when you are in or near
fresh or brackish water.

Do not swim outside
of posted swimming areas
or in waters that might be
inhabited by large alligators.
Alligators are most
active between dusk and
dawn. Therefore, avoid
swimming at night.
Dogs and cats are similar
in size to the natural prey of
alligators. Don't allow pets
to swim, exercise or drink
in or near waters that may
contain alligators.
Never feed alligators -
it's dangerous and illegal.
Dispose of fish scraps
in garbage cans at boat
ramps and fish camps. Do

it's a good time to create a new recipe

A few weeks ago, I was
making brownies and

any cocoa. I always use the
official Hershey's Cocoa

better than boxed mix and I
(nearly) always have the
ingredients on hand.

just soften it)

1/3 c. flour in. Then I

and support during the long journey of losing our mother,

everyone's prayers and support, it made it easier. We would
like to especially thank Hospice, the nurses at Doctors'
Memorial and Joe P Bums Funeral Home for all you have
done. Also South House for bringing out a refrigerator to
help with the food.
There are a couple of very special friends that stood by
my sister through all of this and never left her, Jodie

When Suwannee River
floodwaters at Wilcox fell
below nine feet Sunday, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) deactivated boating
restrictions in Zone 4.
Zone 4 is the section
from the County Road 340
bridge at Rock Bluff to
one mile below the Fowler
Bluff boat ramp. This 51-
mile segment falls under
the boating restrictions as
long as the Suwannee is at
9 feet or more at the Wilcox
gauge, where flood stage is
11 feet.
The FWC activated
restrictions in this zone July
"We verified with the
Suwannee River Water
Management District that
the water level has fallen
* below the required 9 feet at
Wilcox," said Capt. Martin
Redmond, area supervisor
at the FWC's Lake City
"Even though the
restrictions have been lifted
on this zone, we highly
recommend people avoid
boating on the Suwannee
and Santa Fe rivers until

normal conditions and
water levels return. There
are many navigational
hazards along the rivers at
this time," Redmond said.
Dangers include
floating debris, submerged
navigational hazards and
extremely strong currents
on these, rivers. There
is also the potential for
public safety issues and
the increased possibility
of property damage from
vessel wakes, the captain
"FWC officers are
patrolling the rivers and
continuing to assist local
communities to help people
dealing with the aftermath
of Tropical Storm Debby,"
Redmond said.
Zone 5 on the Santa Fe

speed, no-wake zone. It was
activated June 29. FWC
officers are still enforcing
that zone. This zone is a 32-
mile segment from River
Rise in O'Leno State Park

the Suwannee River. It was
activated when the Santa Fe

flood stage is 19 feet. That

An idle-speed, no-wake
restriction means a vessel
must proceed at a speed no
greater than what is required
to maintain steerageway

vessel required to proceed
so slowly that the operator
is unable to control it or
anything it may be towing.

flood stage is 54 feet.
Zone 2 stretches from the

Two local SWAT students participated in a region-wide event marking World No Tobacco Day

'Tobacco kills 1200 Americans a day'

Kalab Wilson, left, and Katherine Crawford assisted in setting up
the Project 1200 display on Panama City Beach and helped educate
beach-goers on the harmful effects of tobacco.

To mark World No
Tobacco Day (WNTD),
36 Students Working
Against Tobacco (SWAT)
members-including two
from Tayor County--came
together on Panama City
Beach to create a "Project:
1200" display to represent
the number of people who
lose their lives to tobacco
every day in the United
Kalab Wilson and
Katherine Crawford, both
of Perry, joined youth from
18 surrounding counties in
northwest Florida making
the public statement,
displaying 1,200 pairs of
shoes to mark the lives lost
every day in the U.S. to
tobacco-related disease.
Observers were provided
shoe tags that read: "Tobacco
kills 1,200 Americans every
day and I'd like to tell you
about one" and were asked
to participate in the display
by adding a personal story to
a shoe tag about a loved one
who died due to tobacco-
related disease.

"This display shed light
on the enormity of the
destruction that is caused
by tobacco use and tobacco
related disease," said
Kristina Wiggins, deputy
secretary of the Florida
Department of Health.
"The SWAT youth sent
a strong message to their
community on the damage
associated with tobacco
use and how the tobacco
industry is continuing
to fight to grow their
customers as well as their
profit margins."
WNTD is a creation of the
World Health Organization
(WHO) that takes place
annually when people are
asked to eliminate tobacco
from their lives for one day.
SWAT youth also
conducted activities that
were in line with this
year's WNTD theme,
specifically, highlighting
tobacco industry attempts
to stop graphic health
warning labels on tobacco
Currently, the Food and

Drug Administration (FDA)
is fighting to implement
a strong graphic warning
label policy in the U.S.
and is involved in litigation
with the tobacco industry.
These and other types of
graphic, hard-hitting images
are shown to reduce the
prevalence of tobacco use.
A movement started
by the national advocacy
group,- Campaign for
Tobacco-Free Kids, Project:
1200 began as a community
outreach activity to increase
discussion regarding the
tobacco epidemic and local
tobacco issues. Project:
1200 displays bring to life
the raw statistics on the
death and disease caused by
"A Project: 1200 display
gave the SWAT youth an
opportunity to show our
community how many
people die every day from

A-10 Taco Times July 11,2012

When were the 49th and

50th stars added to flag?

Continued from page 7
was called the Continental
Colors and the Grand
In response to a general
demand for a banner
more representative of our
country, the Congress on
June 14th, 1777 provided
"That the Flag of the United
States be thirteen stripes
of alternating red and
white, and that the union
be thirteen stars, white on
a blue field, representing a
new constellation. "
The original 13 Stars
and Stripes represented the
original 13 colonies. In
1795 two additional Stars
and Stripes were added

to represent admission
to the Union of Veimont
and Kentucky. Under this
banner of 15 Stars and
Stripes was fought the War
of 1812. It was the sight of
it flying over Fort McHenry,
on Sept. 14, 1814, that
inspired Francis Scott Key
to write what was to become
our national anthem, "The
Star-Spangled Banner."
Miss Margaret Young,
who cut the stars for
that particular banner,
was the mother of
Henry Sanderson, the
Grand Exalted Ruler
of the Order of Elks in 1884.
Congress, on April 14,
1818, adopted a resolution
that on and after July 4,
1818, the number of stripes

should be 13 and that the
blue field should carry
one star for each'of the 20
states in the union and that
a new star should be added
for each state thereafter
Since 1818, there has
been no change in the flag
design, except that 28 new
stars were added before
July 4, 1912, and this flag of
48 flew over this nation for
47years until just before the
Vietnam War
On July 4, 1959, a star
was addedfor Alaska, and a
year later, Hawaii.
The present flag--50
stars and 13 stripes--
was accompanied in the
ceremony by the POW-

MIA flag to recognize the
plight of a special group
of American's Armed
Services, those who
were prisoners of war or
who remain missing in
The Benevolent and
Protective Order of Elks is
the first and only fraternal
body to require formal
observance of "Flag Day." In
July 1908, the Grand Lodge
of this Order, at Dallas,
Texas, then assembled,
provided for the annual
nationwide observance of
"Flag Day" on the 14th
of June in each year, by
making it mandatory upon
