Work zone


Work continues on a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)
project to replace the bridge over the Aucilla River on U.S. 98 at the
Taylor/Jefferson County line. A temporary bridge is being built (bottom) to
handle traffic while the new bridge is under construction. FDOT hired GLF
Construction Corporation of Miami to do the work at a cost of $11 million.
The company has completed about 40 percent of the work and has until
the Fall of 2013 to complete the project, according to Public Information
Director Gina Busscher. Jeffery Mitchell of Quincy (top) takes a break from
his welding work as part of the team building the temporary bridge.




Road project bids



exceed $1 million


County officials
are hoping the
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) will
be able to provide additional
money for the state-
funded Paul Poppell Road
resurfacing project after the
bids came in almost four
times the existing budget.
The county received
$328,000 in Small County
Road Assistance Program
(SCRAP) funding to widen,
resurface and improve the
1.7 miles of road beginning
at the intersection with
Woods Creek Road and
extending to the north
intersection with Slaughter
Road.
The bids, which were
opened at the Taylor County


Commission's July 17
meeting, all exceeded $1
million.
At Monday's commission
meeting, the board approved
the bid committee's
recommendation to award
the project to the lowest
bidder, Oldcastle Southern
Group, Inc., of Jacksonville,
contingent on securing the
necessary funding.
Oldcastle's bid on the
project was $1,199,989,
lower than the three
other bids, which were
$1,266,299 from Anderson
Columbia Co. Inc., of
Lake City; $1,286,000
from Curt's Construction,
Inc., of High Springs;
$1,311,000 from Peavy &
Son Construction Co., Inc.,


of Havana; and $1,931,277
from Capital Asphalt, Inc.,
of Tallahassee.
County Engineer Kenneth
Dudley said he is working
with staff from FDOT to
determine is any additional
funding is available for the
project. The county has been
successful in the past in
securing additional money
when the original state
allocation was insufficient
to complete a project as
designed.
The resurfacing project
on Woods Creek Road and
Harrison Blue Road, which
is near completion, received
an additional $928,000
from FDOT on top of the

The manager of a local
social club was arrested
early Sunday morning and
charged with operating a
bottle club without a license.
The Perry Police
Department (PPD) initiated
the investigation, utilizing
undercover officers and
agents from the Florida
Division of Alcoholic
Beverages and Tobacco (a
subdivision of the Florida
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation).
"During the investigation,
we found that the manager


Michael Frazier
was allowing a bottle club
to operate without a state
license to do so, which

Upon their arrival, a store
employee related that she
was talking with a customer
when she heard a loud noise.
When she turned and looked
at the front of the store, she
saw a black male running
out the front door.


When she look at the
register area, she discovered
tha! he had taken the money
drawer portion of the
register.
The employee described
the suspect as wearing a
cap and a black garbage bag
over his head, Ptl. Church
Geyer reported.
"K-9 Officer Bass and his
partner, Bruce, were already
on scene and began tracking
in an attempt to locate the
suspect," he said.
The track led officers
to an area behind the store
where several pieces of
evidence-including the
unopened cash drawer, a
gray ribbed muscle shirt
and a black trash bag-were
found.
Bruce continued the track
to a wooded thicket behind
the store, where Bass

Airport runway rehab moving forward


Four construction firms
have bid on Phase II of the
rehabilitation project for
Perry-Foley Airport's main
runway (18/36), a project to
be funded entirely by state
and federal sources.
The bids were opened
during the Taylor County
Commission's meeting
Monday evening, with
Music Construction being
the apparent low bidder. The
bid committee for the project
is expected to return at the
commission's next meeting
on Tuesday, Aug. 21, to
make a recommendation.
The county is seeking
a $1.24 million grant
from the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) and
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT).
"FAA requires projects
to be bid out prior to grant
submission," County Grants
Coordinator Melody Cox


said. "FAA has approved
the pre-application."
Cox added that FDOT has
agreed to provide the entire
non-federal portion of the
grant, meaning there will


be no expense to the county
outside of advertising costs.
Music Construction,
which recently completed
work on Phase I of the
project, had a base bid of


$797,944 and a total bid,
after additional alternative
work, of $877,844.
According to Cox,
the alternative work
includes excavation and


embankment, shoulder
grading and replacing the
topsoil and sodding.
The other firms were:

The suspect then
allegedly demanded her
money, which the victim
pulled her from pocket and
threw on the ground.
The victim said the
suspect fled on foot, going
toward an area around
Bacon Street known as the
"trap."
"Prior to arrival on North
Street. Sgt. Gina Deeson
advised she had observed
Thomas walking across U.S.
Highway 19 North toward
Bacon Street just before the
call was dispatched. K-9
Officer Johnson drove down
Bacon Street and observed
several males standing in the
area. He turned his spotlight
on and pointed toward the
group," Hernandez detailed


Construction, Inc., with a
base bid of $1,240,233 and
a total bid of $1,384,733.
"Runway 18/36 is the
primary runway at the
airport and the rehabilitation
is necessary to meet required
aviation safety standards,"
Cox said.
"This runway currently


in his report.
It was at that time Johnson
observed a man matching
Thomas' description
running away. K-9 Rocko
was deployed to track the
suspect.
Johnson and Rocko found
Thomas lying in a patch of
bushes near a wooded area
just west of Wilder Street.
He was taken into custody
without incident and
booked at the Taylor County
Jail.
Ptl. Jamin Cephus
also assisted with case,
interviewing the suspect at
the jail.
During those talks,
Thomas related that he
saw Officer Johnson as
he shined the spotlight on
him and knew the police
were looking for him, so he
ran.

and with a moderate rain,
ponding results on the
runway. This safety hazard
was addressed at the last
three airport inspections by
FDOT in September 2009,
2010 and 2011."
At Monday's commission
meeting, the board approved
a change order on Phase I of
the project, reflecting that
it finished $20,000 under
budget.
The $767,000 project was
also funded by FAA and
FDOT with a county match
of $19,000.

originally allotted $2.6
million.
According to Dudley, if
FDOT cannot provide more
funding, the remaining
options include finding
a local source within the
county's budget or working
with the contractor to value-
engineer the project.
As for the Woods
Creek and Harrison Blue
resurfacing, Dudley said
there have been some
construction delays coupled
with weather delays which
have held up the project
from completion.
Meanwhile, the county
is also close to finishing
several locally funded
paving projects, including
Sea Meadows Drive and
Herb Hendry Road, the
second of which was
included in a change order
on the Woods Creek Road
project.
Holt Road is close to
going out for bid, while
staff is hoping to resolve
right-of-way issues within
the next week or two on


Freeman Road, Dudley said.
For the state-funded
SCRAP projects, up next
is East Red Padgett Road,
which received $515,000.
The project consists of 2.5
miles beginning at U.S. 19
and extending east to the
intersection with South Red
Padgett Road, as funding
allows.
Meanwhile, South Red
Padgett Road received
$918,000 from the Small
County Outreach Program
(SCOP) to widen, resurface
and improve the 3.2 miles
beginning at U.S. 19 and
extending north to the
intersection with East Red
Padgett Road, as funding
allows.
According to Dudley, the
design work on both Red
Padgett Road projects have
been completed.
Beyond these projects,
for which the county
has already received the
funding, DOT has also
scheduled a number of
SCRAP and SCOP projects
in Taylor County out to
fiscal year 2015, including:
$752,000 in SCRAP
funds for 1.84 miles of


4-H registration starts Sept. 1

County gives FFS generator
The Taylor County Commission agreed Monday to
transfer a 15-kilowatt generator located at the Boyd tower
to the Florida Forest Service.
"The generator is located at the Boyd tower where
the county has removed all radio equipment," County
Emergency Management Director Dustin Hinkel told
commissioners.
"It would be more expensive to remove, repair and
maintain the generator than acquiring a new resource. The
Forest Service has requested ownership of the resource to
back up equipment they have on the tower."

Go Y eA ,te e...to eat


By LORI WIGGINS
Family/Consumer Sciences
Extension Agent III
Seafood includes fresh
and saltwater fish, and also
includes shellfish like
shrimp, clams and oysters.
Seafood not only tastes
good, but it is part of a
healthy diet. When you eat
seafood you get protein,
minerals and vitamins.
Seafood is low in
saturated fat and contains
heart healthy omega-3 fatty
acids that can help prevent
heart disease. Adults and
children both can benefit
from eating seafood.
How much seafood?
The 2010 Dietary
Guidelines for Americans
recommend eating seafood
instead of meat and poultry
twice a week. Adults should
eat at least 8 ounces per
week. Young children can
eat 6 ounces per week.
What about mercury?
There are more benefits
from a variety of seafood
than the risk of high
mercury levels. The best
seafood choices that are
high in omega-3s and low
in mercury are: salmon,
herring, sardines, pollock,
trout, oysters and
Atlantic-Pacific mackerel.
You can find most of
these choices frozen and
canned. Pregnant women
and young children should
avoid fish high in mercury
like shark, swordfish,
tilefish and King mackerel.
They also should limit


"white" albacore tuna to
less than 6 ounces per week.
The best choices for
pregnant women and young
children are salmon,
pollock, trout, flounder,
tilapia, shrimp, catfish and
canned light tuna.

As we finish the Campaign for Tuesday's Primary, My Campaign has been about what is very important to me.

FAITH, FAMILY and FRIENDS
Accountability is a major part of being an accountant. I have the experience and education on how to dot every "i" and cross every "t"! On a daily
basis I am accountable for large sums of other people's money and have been for the past 15 years, handling approximately 25% more than
the Tax Collector currently collects annually. As I have stated in previous political forums, Your Tax Collector should be all about exceptional
Customer Service that surpasses your favorite grocery store because mistakes can be justified there by frequent visits. The majority of citizens
will only come in YOUR Tax Collector's office twice a year or even less to pay taxes or renew tags and their driver's license. It is imperative;
YOU GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME, NO TIME FOR AMENDMENTS
Open Government, Transparency, Real Experience

or at least the


paper it's written on.


From cover to cover, the Taco Times is full of news, sports, com-

munity events, classified and much more. Get your 500 worth

with these 25 good uses for a newspaper once you've read it:


1. Temporarily block the sun from streaming in windows.

2. Spread sheets of newspapers out and make clothing pat-
terns

3. Dampen and spread over window glass to protect it when
you paint.

4. Line and protect closet shelves and drawer bottoms

5. Place folded newspapers on the floor as a mat for wet shoes
or muddy boots.

6. Make fire logs out of old newspapers. Roll sheets of newspa-
pers up tightly in the shape of a log. Tie them tight with string
and use them in your fireplace or on a camp fire.

7. Do you still have some old 45 or other type of vinyl records?
Store them safely by placing old newspapers in between each
one.

8. Ball up half sheets and let Kitty play with them. Cats love the
crinkling noise.

9. Place balls of old newspapers inside leather shoes, purses,
and in suitcases. They help leather items keep their shape.
They also help deodorize them.

to. Use old newspapers to polish windows to a streak-free
shine. Also great for polishing chrome.

11. Your auto have a fluid leak? Place sheets underneath your
car when it's parked in the garage to protect the floor.

12. If your auto's parked outside in the winter weather, lay old
newspapers on the windshield so you don't have to clean off
ice and snow in the morning.


13. Spread out sheets of newspaper between plants in your gar-
den to keep weed growth down. Cheaper than black plastic!

14. Make mulch for your garden.

15. Bring green tomatoes in the house and wrap them in old
newspapers. Place them in a dark, cool area, and they will
ripen nicely.

16. Expecting a frost? Cover vulnerable garden plants with
tents made out of newspapers.

17. Fold them over and kneel on them when you're working in
the garden.

18. Transport fresh flowers in damp newspaper to keep them
fresh longer.

19. Buy some glue, long sticks, string, and let your kids make
kites.

20. Celebrate New Year's Eve with confetti made from old
newspapers.

21. Let the kids keep busy on a rainy day. Let them make paper
chains, hand puppets, or costumes.

22. Make a kid's birthday party fun! Use filled balloons, flour,
water, and strips of old newspapers to create a pifiata.

23. Wrap up glass and other breakables in thick sheets of
newspaper before you pack them to move.

24. Temporarily cover up a broken window until you can get it
repaired.

25. Use strips of newspaper in place of litter in your kitty's box.

The NRA Foundation is
a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Net
proceeds are distributed
as grants for youth firearm
safety, marksmanship
training, women's programs,
range development, law
enforcement and more.
"If you believe in the right
to keep and bear arms, your
support is vital," Lancaster,
said. "You do not need
to be an NRA member to
attend.
"From the moment you
walk in, the atmosphere is
brimming with excitement.
Whether you're keeping
an eye on that unique item
in the silent auction or just
dining on some delicious
food, you'll be sure to have
a good time.
"It's a family-friendly
event chock-full of
everything from exclusive,


limited-edition merchandise,
firearms, knives, art.jewelry
and more." Lancaster said.
"Amongst the fun and
fellowship. Friends of NRA
banquets boil down to
one goal--fund-raising for
the future of the shooting
sports," he continued.
Since its inception in
1992, Friends of NRA'has
held more than 15,000
events, reached more than
two and a half million
attendees and raised some
$200 million for The NRA
Foundation.
Friends of 'NRA's fund-
raising efforts allow The
NRA Foundation to provide
funding to firearm programs
on the local, state and
national levels.
The Florida State Fund
Committee (comprised of
representatives from each
Friends of NRA Committee
in the state) has awarded
420 grants totalling more
than $1,651,750 in the past
19 years.
Of the total funds raised,
81 percent ($1,337,917) has
been used specifically for
youth programs such as Boy
Scouts, JROTC, 4-H, Eddie
Eagle Gun Safe programs
and more.
Despite not having a local
chapter, Taylor County has
received significant grant
funds in the past from The
NRA Foundation, which has
donated $5,300 to Taylor
County 4-H since 2001
and gave Taylor County's
JROTC $5,400 in 2007.
"Over $175,000 last
year alone was given away
in Florida, with over 90
percent specifically for
youth programs," Lancaster
added.
"Making up the backbone
of Friends of NRA are the
thousands of passionate
volunteers. Working with
NRA Field Staff, thousands
of dedicated individuals
across America, passionate
and cQncerned about the


future of the shooting sports,
participate in the program
by organizing committees,
securing donations, selling
tickets and hosting a Friends
of NRA banquet in their
community."

hlancaster@nrahq.org.
Established in 1990, The
NRA Foundation has funded


more than 18,000 grants,
becoming America's leading
charitable organization in
the support of shooting
sports.
According to Lancaster,
hundreds of indoor and


outdoor ranges have been
built or repaired by NRA
range grants, and then
frequented by students
learning marksmanship in
JROTC, Boy Scouts and
4-H.

My primary concern has always been your
safety and well-being. I have been trying to reduce
both crime and drugs in our community. I have
welcomed your input and suggestions on your needs
to best serve the citizens and community.
I have made education and training for my employees and
myself a priority. This education helps us with our jobs to
protect our community better.
Drugs are one of the biggest concerns--not just in our
county but in the country. Drugs have touched almost every
family in one way or another. I cannot stop the drugs, but I
believe we can slow them down and control the sale and use
of them.
Just look at the television or the newspaper. Talk to anyone
working in law enforcement. We cannot do it alone. We need
everyone working together.
I believe that my experience--working my way up through
the ranks to Chief Deputy with the Sheriff's Office, the 16
years with the State Attorney's Office as an investigator and
the 16 years as your Sheriff--certainly qualify me as the best
candidate, with the most experience, to continue serving you
and the community under the current budget constraints.

Thank you!

Yes, your vote counts...


just ask winners, losers


from previous elections


If you read the election
supplement in Friday's
newspaper, you simply cannot
say: "I don't know anything
about this year's political
candidates."
The edition featured
a wealth of information
about the candidates and
their views on many issues
affecting Taylor County.
Plus, it was pretty interesting
reading.
If you missed it, please find
your way to our offices at
123 S. Jefferson Street. We
have extra copies available.
This election--like all
others--deserves study and
careful consideration. Don't
go to the polls unprepared...
but do go to the polls!
The primary is Aug. 14 and


your vote absolutely counts.
We bring to your attention the
last city council election in
which Don Cook won by four
votes.
Yes, four votes.
This field of candidates has
worked diligently, shaking
hands and shaking the bushes
for votes. Do your homework
and either vote early (through
Saturday, Aug. 11 ) or be at
the polls on Tuesday, Aug.
14, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
In America, we may be
complacent about the
freedoms we enjoy, but
preserving our right to vote
has cost countless lives.
In gratitude, the very least
you can do is find your way
to the polls and make sure
democracy wins.


Letters to the Editor


Hospita

Dear Editor:
I have been living in
Perry only 11 months but
I have discovered a local
jewel that many residents
don't know about.
I recently received a total
knee joint replacement. I
wanted to have the surgery
at the large hospital in
Jacksonville where my
daughter and her husband
are nurses, but my husband
persuaded me to talk to
some people in Doctors'
Memorial Hospial.
"Those people" were
the staff from Tallahassee
Orthopedic Center (TOC)
who now operate one
wing of our hospital. After
talking with the TOC staff
and several acquaintances


123 S. Jefferson Street
Perry, Florida


I praised for care


ring recent stay


who have had knee joint
replacement here and
elsewhere, I agreed to have
my surgery in Perry. What a
great surprise!
The hospital outpatient
surgery staff quickly and
very kindly prepared me for
surgery. The surgeon from
Tallahassee arrived right on
schedule. I received spinal
anesthesia and a nerve
block .to prevent the .leg
from hurting severely right
after the operation. I also
received medication to keep
me from knowing what
was happening, but which
stopped immediately after
the surgery. By the time
I got to the room where I
would spend three nights I
was wide awake and feeling


good.
Only four rooms were for
orthopedic patients and the
nurses and assistants serve
only those four patients. I
was almost overwhelmed
by their attentiveness, their
eagerness to meet all of my
needs and even my wants,
and the fact that they were
always just outside my
door. On the few occasions
when I pressed the "call"
button someone appeared
almost immediately. Every
person with whom I came
into contact, including the
housekeepers, was friendly
and wished me well.
I received excellent
treatment and the food was

Midweek Muddle


As Girls Scouts of America
to observe their 100th ann
I flash back to a hideous
uniform and the knee soc
accompafiied it.
I might have looked be
wasn't the second or third
this dowdy little dress, but
even the girls with -
new Brownie uniforms
looked a little forlorn.
Instead of rescuing
me from this fashion
crime scene, the knee
socks and beanie just
added insult to injury.
Not far from that
memory is the Sit-Upon,
which was fashioned of
newspapers sandwiched
between two pieces of
oil cloth, laced together
by polyester cording.
There have been times
since--when gardening
or picnicking--that I
thought about that Sit- -
Upon and wished I had :t
it to sit upon.
I remember the
mirror which camp
leaders surrounded by
greenery in a wooded
area adjacent to the
Scout House, where
our bridging ceremony
took place--the mirror
representing the pool
into which we were to
gaze upon our own
reflection, remembering
what was expected of us
in years to come, as we
reached another level of
life and scouting.
I remember selling
hundreds of boxes of
Girl Scout cookies up
and down the streets of
my small city. One year,
our own dining room
become a warehouse, of
sorts, for Girl Scouts of
America, stacked from
floor to ceiling with
Thin Mints, Samoas and
Tagalongs.
In a memory clouded
by heat and humidity,
I remember the week-
long day camp where
we made Girl Scout Stew
with ground beef (in a
tight, were we supposed
to kill a cow and grind up
the meat for this stew?) an
our own burners out o
cans. We learned to identi
trees on the grounds, as we

encounters with each.

Boys Scout enjoy life as'mountain men' for a week


Perry's Boy Scout Troop
600 recently spent a week at
Woodruff Scout Reservation
in North Georgia.
They left on Sunday,
July 22, and returned on
Saturday, July 28.


Accompanying the
boys were Scoutmaster
David Adams, Assistant
Scoutmaster Matt Eckel,
Troop Committee Chairman
Paul Wiggins and Steve
Wurgler.


Located near Blairsville,
Robert W. Woodruff Scout
Reservation is a 1,545-acre
camp property adjacent
to Lake Notley and the
Chattahoochee National
Forest. According to the


Scout leaders, the "beautiful
North Georgia Mountains
surround most of the camp,
with Woodruff offering
a spectacular 86-acre
mountain lake, a climbing/
rappelling tower, nature


center, trading post, a COPE
Course, astronomy studies,
shooting sports, heavily
wooded campsites and great
hiking trails. We had the
opportunity to enjoy a great
aquatic area or visit the


nearby Nantahala or Ocoee
Rivers for whitewater
rafting, canoeing or tubing.
The Appalachian Trail and
Cohutta Wilderness were
close at hand for extended
backpacking trips."


Perry Rotary Club President Chris Pink and Rotarian Diane Ching prepare
for dinner at the Rotary Youth Camp.



Rotarians go to camp


Members of the Perry
Rotary Club recently
traveled to the Rotary Youth
Camp near Quincy to serve
dinner to some 75 campers
and counselors.
The camp is supported
by the Rotary Clubs from
around the region and
is dedicated to "giving
children an unequaled
camping experience."
The camp is intended for
children ages nine through


16 with a physical limitation
which would make it
difficult or impossible to
participate at other camps.
No campers are charged a
fee, however, the actual cost
per camper is approximately
$1,400. Any person, group
or company may co-sponsor
a camper. The Perry Rotary
Club sponsors a camper
each year.
Various Rotary clubs
serve dinner to the campers

medically vulnerable and
underserved people. They
are strong partnerships of
people, governments and
communities who work
together to address the
unique and diverse health
conditions of the
community. Health centers
are run from the bottom up,
by a patient-majority
governing board which
guides how limited
resources can be effectively
directed to meet its patients'
health care needs.
One of the bright spots in
America's health care
system, health centers
provide a health care home
with open access and offer a
sliding fee scale program to
all of those who live in
Taylor County. This model
of care was rated as one of
the most effective programs
by former President George
W. Bush's Office of
Management and Budget.
Indeed, presidents from


both parties and members
of Congress on both sides
of the aisle have long-
recognized the value of
health centers and
supported their expansion.
With more health care
homes in communities, we
can reduce health care
costs and unnecessary
hospitalizations and visits
to the hospital emergency
rooms.
Studies show that when
illnesses like diabetes,
hypertension, asthma and
depression are not
appropriately managed or
prevented, they account for
a significant portion of the
skyrocketing costs for
families and the entire
health care system.
Community health centers,
like Taylor Medical and
Dental Centers, have been
leaders in showing the
value of this approach as an
effective way to address
more needs, improve health
and provide basic dental
services.
We serve every member


of the community. Those
that have insurance such as
Blue Cross / Blue Shield,
Medicare, Medicaid, as
well as offer a sliding fee
scale. We serve the needs of
our community under one
roof, where every patient is
treated as an individual,
with dignity and respect.
This is what health care
should be, and what we
celebrate during National
Health Center Week. For a
list of all of North Florida
Medical Center, Inc.,
locations, please visit
www.NFMC.org.
We invite you to visit our
center and experience what
a community health center
is all about, not only during
our upcoming event, but as
an open invitation. We are
here to serve our
community. Please call us
at any time for more
information at Taylor
Medical Center 850-838-

satisfactory experience,
something I wasn't
expecting.
One great advantage of
having surgery locally is
that it is much easier on
family members who want
to visit or even stay
overnight with the patient.
No long drives to
Tallahassee or Gainesville.
And did you know that our
hospital rooms are larger
than most of those in
Tallahassee?
I'm at home now,
receiving physical therapy
from Gentiva Health care,
and their nurses and
therapists continue to make
my experience a good one.
