$142,000 presentation
For the second year in a row, representatives from Aucilla Area Solid Waste presented Taylor

McHugh, Page and Commissioner Pam Feagle.


A-2 Taco Times October 10, 2012

Since January

113,000 acres have

burned in the state

For the past 57 years in Taylor County,
the month of October has been dedicated to
the forestry industry with the community
celebrating the Florida Forest Festival.
This week Commissioner of Agriculture
Adam H. Putnam and the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services' Florida Forest Service are
highlighting the dangers of wildfires and
encouraging Floridians to make wildfire
preparedness a priority during National Fire
Prevention Week, Oct. 7 through 13.
"Florida's wildfire danger has temporarily
decreased due to the summer rainy season,
however we must remain vigilant," said
Commissioner Putnam. "National Fire
Prevention Week serves as a reminder
for families to take the necessary steps to
protect their homes and property against the
devastating effects of wildfire."
In keeping with Fire Prevention Week's
national theme of "Two Ways Out," the
department's Florida Forest Service urges
citizens to develop a family wildfire escape
plan. Having a set escape plan is vital as
poor visibility, smoke and flames can cause
panic and confusion during a fire. The
escape plan should include two routes from
the neighborhood in the event the main exit
is blocked. Plans should also include a list
of items to take if an evacuation becomes
"Wildfire prevention and home
preparedness is everyone's responsibility,"
said Jim Karels, director of the Florida
Forest Service. "Most homes are not
destroyed from direct contact with' a
wildfire, but instead from fire traveling
across fences, trees limbs, debris and other
'ladder' fuels connected to the home."
The department's Florida Forest Service
advises that one of the best ways to reduce
a home's wildfire risk is to create 30 feet
of defensible space around the home. In
the first three feet from the home, the space
needs to be free of tall, fire-prone plants
and materials. Instead, opt for low growing,
fire-resistant plants and use rocks or chunky

bark for mulch. Position plants so that none
are placed directly under windows or vents.
Floridians can further protect their property
by following these tips:
Keep mulch and pine needles away
from the home, fence and deck.
Keep roofs and gutters free of pine
Keep flammable chemicals and materials

Florida Forest Festivlal
Tree Ccipitoil of
Sthe South

Festival grew from

county's desire to

prevent forest fires

In 1955, the citizens of Taylor County
decided to stage a county-wide "Pine Tree
Festival" as an educational tool to reduce
forest fires that were crippling the county's
economic base--the timber industry.
Over the years, the festival grew and
accomplished its aim so well that by 1965,
Taylor County could.boast the lowest fire
record in the nation, prompting then Florida
Governor Hayden Burns and the Florida
Cabinet to proclaim Taylor County the
"Tree Capital of the South," a distinction it
still holds.
U.S. Congressman Don Fuqua made
the same proclamation on the floor of the
At the urging of Governor Burns, the
Pine Tree Festival then became known as
the Florida Forest Festival.

Embracing simplicity &

* *: making it complicated

The daughter was tanned,
relaxed and totally unprepared.
She had just taken a bite of
the shrimp sandwich we were
sharing, along with a Greek
salad on the side. Tall glasses
of sweet tea, with lemon, were
before us.
"When I'm in the nursing
home, I will need chap stik on
my lips, please."
She hates it when I do that.
We're not supposed to talk
about these difficult transitions
in Life, and I understand that.
I've always preferred the ostrich
approach, too: what you can't
see won't happen.
But, the truth is: it could
happen and I'm learning to say
now, what I may forget to say
"Mammaaaaa," she said,
drawing out, the term of
endearment to suggest her
disappointment. "Why do you
do that?"'
"I just do," I admitted. "And
one more thing," I said as she
was rolling her eyes, "if I drop
dead, don't let that bother you
a bit. I'm beginning to think
that dropping dead is a good
way to go."
Then she held her hands
toward me in a "stand back"
position and I agreed to depart
from this line of conversation
even though it was about Life's
only certainty, death.
But it caused me to wonder,
what other comforts do I feel
I just can't live without? As I
made a short list, I realized all
could be mine for a few dollars.
Finally, I have embraced
A good pillow
I don't want to spend many
nights on this earth without
a good pillow. When I was
younger, I could have slept on
a rock without any side effects,
but now I must have a good
pillow in order to enjoy the
next day.
Steal my jewelry, if you must,
but please leave my pillow.
Jar gripper
There was a time when funeral
homes gave out fans and Liberty
National agents distributed
packages of sewing needles.
What 1 have missed the most,
however, are those rubbery
jar grippers which banks
distributed to good customers.
I don't want to live in a world
of jars without a rubbery jar

gripper. After a lifetime of
unleashing pickles and jellies,
my current jar gripper is nearly
in shreds. If it completely falls
apart, I'll have to use a hammer.
Since interest rates at banks
across the nation are at all-time
lows, couldn't they just give us
all a jar gripper for not burying
our money in the backyard?
I drink a lot of water every
day, and enjoy it. But if I need
to meet a newspaper deadline,
plan a wedding or simply drive
my car into town, I need a Coca-
Cola in the morning, and one or
two after that, too.
I know it's horrible, but I
don't do methamphetamine
or cocaine. I don't even drink
much wine and I've only smoked
one cigarette. I don't dabble in
adultery or swear much.
That entitles me, I think, to
have a Coca-Cola every day
with all the caffeine, calories
and syrup that will fit into a
skinny yet shapely bottle. My
punishment, of course, is that
everyday my shape becomes
less like that bottle's.
After that Coca-Cola, I want
to brush my teeth with Crest-I
love that fresh minty taste and,
if you use the really good stuff,
it will make you drink more
water which is good for you.
Then the vicious cycle begins
again with chap stik.
In a time of war or pestilence,
I might be able to wear my
underwear two days in a row,
but I can't live without chap
stik. I'd rather wear shoes that
hurt. Without chap stik, my lips
dry out like dessert sand which
causes me to lick them and that
just causes them to become
even more chapped.
Like my mother, I call lipstick
my "red badge of courage." But
underneath it, I need chap stik...
whether Wall Street crashes
again or Harvard becomes a
technical school.
So, in case the daughter
forgets, could the rest of you
remember? When I go to the
nursing home, I will need chap
A good pillow.
And a morning Coca-Cola
followed by some minty
toothpaste and a glass of ice
water (not a bottle).
And my lipstick.

$175,000 awarded for coastal park

Taylor County officials'
efforts to alleviate parking
congestion around the
Keaton Beach public boat
ramp received a boost
last week when it was
announced that the county
has received a $175,000
state grant to construct an
overflow parking lot at the
adjacent Keaton Beach
Coastal Park.
Although work has
continued at the property
on other aspects of the park
throughout this year, the
parking lot was delayed due
to the project's cost.
According to County
Grants Coordinator Melody
Cox, the county has
approximately $200,000
available for the parking lot,
but after seeking bids three
separate times, the lowest
bid was $450,000.
In February, the county
commission agreed to
pursue a Florida Boating
Improvement Program
(FBIP) for an additional
$175,000 with a local match
of $75,000 coming from
District 3 (Commissioner
Lonnie Houck) paving

"As soon as we have a
contract, we're ready to
go," she said. "We have the

Everything is done. The
contractor agreed to hold
his prices."
This is the third FBIP
grant the county has
received for the project.

for the actual construction,"
Cox said.
The county recently
received an extension on the
$ II II 111 grant to June 2013
in order to give the county
lime to seek additional
funding, she added.
"The parking facilities
have been designed to meet
coastal-friendly, low-impact
development standards
using permeable pavers,"
Cox said.
In addition to the parking
lot, the county received
a Coastal Partnership
Initiative (CPI) grant for
the construction of a picnic
pavilion, educational
kiosk, habitat signage and
landscaping, which were
completed this past summer.

Pumpkin Patch open for fun, funds
It's fall...and to mark the change of seasons, you really should find your way to the
Pumpkin Patch, presented by First United Methodist Church.
"The Pumpkin Patch will be open from 4-6 p.m. weekday afternoons and from 10 a.m.
to 6 p.m. on Saturdays," said James Taylor, pastor. On weekdays, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.,
you may ring the bell at the church office on Jefferson Street. Pumpkins range from $1 to
$20. Funds raised go toward mission projects and youth events.
In celebration of the season, on Saturday, Oct. 20, the church will have a special showing
of "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" at 7 p.m. as well as other "tales from the
Pumpkin Patch!" Taylor is confident there's a pumpkin waiting just for you.

Apples and pumpkins,
cinnamon and nutmeg,
soups and stews. You
guessed it it's fall.
Fall is the time when food
starts to take center stage
- farmers' markets are re-
opening with fresh produce,
Oktoberfests are happening,
tailgating is going on,
Halloween is approaching
with pumpkin carving and
treats, apples are being
dipped in caramel and being
pressed for cider, and cooks
are researching soup recipes
to help ward off the coming
change of the weather.
Living in North Florida
we don't see the leaves
changing color quite yet
or feel the temperatures
dropping too rapidly, but
stores are receiving an
abundance of pumpkins and
apples. They are not only
in the produce departments
but also used for flavorings
of the new offerings of
foods lining grocery shelves
from cream cheese to coffee
creamers. Of course, there
are always pumpkin pie and
pumpkin-flavored cookies
to end a hearty meal.
Apples, a favorite fall
fruit, are being made into
fritters, combined with
cabbage, used as chutney,
being mixed with sausages,
made, into cakes and pies,
topped onto pancakes,
baked and, of course, used
for stuffing. Local stores

made a diving 36-yard catch
at the 17-yard line.
Wentworth punched the

Making his first start as a

nailed the first of his 5 extra

back one play later when
Wentworth was picked off
on a pass over the middle.
Aided by a 15-yard

the turnover into their only

a 38-yard wheel pass to

haven't even asked for one
(go figure). Did he not get
Bin Laden and Khadafi,
something a Republican
president couldn't do, and the
worldwide consensus is that
our military is the greatest
and repressive countries will
not mess with us without
dire consequences.
Another lie was the
welfare system collapsing
our country. These
unfortunate people (I'm sure
there are those who cheat, as
there are in politics, sports
and every other financial
agenda) do pay taxes just
not income tax directly to
the federal government.
They pay sales tax, gas tax,
some even pay mortgage tax
or real estate tax. By the way
the Republican Party under
Bush raised the welfare rolls
with their failed policies and
people like Mr. Romney
and Bain Capital buying up
failing companies, investing


Continued from page 2
Example: You own 40
acres of land. You have
half of it planted in pine
with future expectations
of harvesting it for your
retirement nest egg, or
children's college. There is
an acre that your house sits
on. The other area is covered
in grass for the grazing of a
few goats and a cow. At the
far end a nice stream babbles
on where there are trout and
turtles in abundance. This is
your property. All 40 acres,
on which you pay taxes.

a little money in them to
make them solvent, then
borrowing millions against
them and forcing them into
bankruptcy and putting
thousands out of work and
ultimately on the welfare
Not to mention the
phenomenal amount of jobs
sent over seas because of
cheaper labor and higher
profits for these Republican
CEOs who also got tax
incentives made available
by the Bush Administration,
again adding to the welfare
roles. Can you imagine if
this country didn't have
a welfare system how
many people would be
on the streets hungry and
homeless. It would be total
chaos and destruction. This
country would implode over
night, then the Republicans
would have nobody to think
they're better than. It always
seems that people born with
silver spoons in their mouths
or many seven-figure
earners, have a hard time
relating to or being honestly

compassionate about people
who are not as well off as
And Mr. Romney had the
nerve to make Ithat disgusting
remark about 47 percent
of his own countrymen.
Sounds more like a tyrant
then a politician. How could
any real American vote for
a man that puts his own
people down. Oh that's
right he's white, handsome,
and oh yes a Mormon.
A religion that condones
multiple wives, something
he claims not to do but
accepts as did his father
who did have more than one
wife. Is that Christian? Our
constitution was created to
separate religion and state,
remember, this is something
every educated American
knows and a lot not educated
God should be kept in our
hearts and churches. Almost'
every government that
rules religiously, is either
in turmoil or dangerously
oppressive. I get the feeling
that most people who don't

want Obama as president
have racial undertones. I'm
not trying to insult those
who know who they are,
but it is what it is. Obama
inherited a 10 percent
unemployment and it's now
eight percent. The building
industry is picking up and
creating more jobs. People
are starting to buy homes
again. Obama Care prevents
$20 Band-Aids and $30 for

a cotton ball. And remember
insurance companies exist
for profit; Obamacare
prevents them from price
gouging the little man.
Obviously if you want
Romney for president
even though he wants a
war with Iran and insults
the Russian president and
threatens China, all very
unstratetegical moves, then
you have a doomsday fetish.

I'm sorry but I want my
children and grandchildren
to live without fear of
having to go to war because
of a single man's agenda,
I want them to be safe and
have opportunity to be who
and what they want without
criticism or obstruction,
financially or racially. If
you're selling snake oil then
sell it don't drink it.

21 rally scheduled Oct. 20 at state capitol

The future is bright. This is
yours do to as you see fit.
This is property rights.
One day a bird is spotted
in your pine forest. Oh my,
that little guy is a strange
one. EPA comes and decides
that it is endangered, and
that the land your cow and
goats use has the only grass
that this bird will eat.
Your land is now
declared (by the gov.) to be
environmentally sensitive.
Thereby you cannot
harvest the pine, nor keep
the cow and goats.
You still pay the taxes,
you still own the 40 acres,

but you have lost the right to
your property, to do with as
you want. No nest egg from
the pine forest, no cow nor
goats for meat or milk.
Take the case where a two-
inch fish closed an essential
waterway for farmers in
California. This fish was
deemed environmentally
protected and hundreds of
acres of farm land were
left barren and workers
Beware of easements. If
the government (local, state
or federal) offers to purchase
land giving you an easement
right, it just might not be

what you think. Easement,
sure what harm is there in
that? An easement goes with
the land, not the owner. The
sale of a conservation
easement is the sale of
the development rights on
the land forever. Such an
easement gives the Land
Trust the right to enter the
property to inspect and
monitor the land.
You can no longer use it,
cross it, park on it. This is not
justice, this is social justice!
These are just a few
examples of how your
property rights can be taken
from you. Beware Agenda

21 is breathing down your
neck. Now is the time to
stand up and take action.
Ask the county
commissioners to abolish it
from our county.
On the surface all the
hype Agenda 21 spews
looks logical and good, but
read between the lines and
actually see what you will
lose over time.
This is .not the type of
legislation that is passed
and enacted; it creeps into
your life like mold in a
house. Slowly and deadly.

Writer questions America's 'Muslim heritage'

Dear Editor:
Muslim heritage in
America: .
My fellow Americans:
This what you are about
to read is the true Muslim
heritage that our president
will not talk to you about.
Have you ever been to
'a Muslim hospital, heard
a Muslim orchestra, seen
a Muslim band march in a
parade, witnessed a Muslim
charity, shaken hands with
a Muslim Girl Scout, seen
a Muslim Candy Striper, or
seen a Muslim do anything
that "contributes positively"
to the American way of life?
The answer is no. You did
not and you have not! Just
ask yourself why not!
Barack H. Obama, during
his Cairo speech said,
"I know too, that Islam
has always been a part of
America's history."

This American citizen's
response is: Dear Mr.
Obama, were those Muslims
that were in America when
the Pilgrims first landed?
Funny. I thought they were
Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims
that celebrated the first
Thanksgiving Day? Sorry
again. Those were Pilgrims
and Native American
Can you show me
one Muslim signature
on the United States
Constitution? Declaration
of Independence? Bill of
Rights? Didn't think you
Did ,Muslims fight for
this country's freedom from
England? No!
Did Muslims fight during
the Civil War to free the
slaves in America? No, they
did not! In fact, Muslims to

this day are still the largest
traffickers in human slavery.
Your own half-brother,
a devout Muslim, still
advocates slavery himself,
even though Muslims of
Arabic descent refer to black
Muslims as "pug nosed
slaves." Readers, this stuff
is written down fact. Look
it up.
Do your research. Says a
lot of what the Muslim world
really thinks of your family's
"rich Islamic heritage,"
doesn't it Mr. Obama.
America, I hope you are as
angry as I am, knowing what
our leader really believes and
does not share truthfully with
us. Wait, there's more.
Where were the Muslims
during the Civil Rights era
of this country? Not present.
There are no pictures or
media accounts of Muslims
walking side by side with

Martin Luther King, Jr., or
helping to advance the cause
of Civil Rights!
Where were the Muslims
during this country's Women
Suffrage era? Again, not
present! In fact, devout
Muslims demand that women
are subservient to men in the
Islamic culture. So much so
that often they are beaten for
not wearing the "hajib" or
for talking to a man who is
not a direct family member
or their husband.
Yep, the Muslims are all
for women's rights, aren't
they? Where were Muslims
during World War II? They
were aligned with Adolf
Hitler. The Muslim Grand
Mufti himself met with Adolf
Hitler, reviewed the troops
and accepted support from
the Nazis in killing Jews.
Finally, Mr. Obama, where
were Muslims on Sept. 11,

2001? If they weren't flying
planes into the World Trade
Center, the Pentagon, or a
field in Pennsylvania killing
nearly 3,000 people "on
our own soil," they were
rejoicing in the Middle
East. No one can dispute the
pictures shown from all parts
of the Muslim world, them
celebrating on CNN, Fox
News, MSNBC and other
cable news networks that
Strangely, the very
"moderate" Muslims,
whose butts you bent over
backwards to kiss in Cairo,
Egypt, on June 4th, were
stone cold silent post 9-11.
To many Americans, their
silence has meant approval
for the acts of that day. And
THAT Mr. Obama, is the
"rich heritage" Muslims
have here in America...oh,
I'm sorry.

I forgot to mention the
Barbary Pirates. They were
Muslims. We can also add
Nov. 5, 2009, the slaughter
of American soldiers at
Fort Hood by a Muslim
major, who is a doctor and
a psychiatrist, who was
supposed to be counseling
soldiers returning from battle
in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That. Mr Obama, is
the "Muslim Heritage" in
When you read this article,
remember the four kinds of
people in the world.
Smart people, common
sense people, idiots and
those just born stupid.
Take a stand in November
and "Vote for the American."
God bless you and God
bless America.
Sincerely, I am,
a Christian American,
Ted Colson

Recognizing the 1997 TCHS Bulldogs

Members of the 1997
Taylor County High School
(TCHS) Bulldog football
team, along with the band,
cheerleaders and auxiliary

years after the 'Dogs won

the school's sole football
state championship.
The festivities kicked off

1997 returnees and their
families parading in to the

applause of the assembled
students and staff.
A championship banner
was also unfurled in the
Later, during half time of
the current Bulldogs' game

against Walton County, the
team was again recognized
on the field.
The 1997 Bulldogs
went 13-2, defeating
Clewiston 14-6 in the state
championship game.

Members of the 1997 state championship Bulldog football team showed off their rings and signaled
"number one" while being recognized during half-time of the current Bulldogs' game against Walton

well as during the pep rally held earlier in the day the school. (Photos by Angela M. Castelucci)
