Woman pinned

under vehicle

is rescued by


A Perry woman was
pinned underneath her
overturned SUV for more
than three hours Saturday
before being discovered by
a passer-by.
Amy Anne Dice, 26, of
Greenville, was transported
by private vehicle to
Doctors' Memorial
Hospital and then airlifted
to Tallahassee Memorial
where her condition has
been upgraded from
"serious" to "good."
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) Trooper Gus
Smyrnios assessed the scene
after the driver had already

been taken to the hospital.
In his report, Smymios
said the crash was believed
to have occurred about 2
a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, on
Jody Morgan Grade. The
passer-by motorist, who
assisted the driver from the
scene and transported her to
town for medical treatment,
reported the crash around
5:45 a.m.
Smymios' investigation
revealed that Dice, driving
a 2006 Toyota Tacoma, was
eastbound on Jody Morgan
Grade and failed to negotiate

The driver of this 2002 Honda SUV had a nasty scare but no injuries when
her vehicle overturned during a single-vehicle rollover Monday shortly after
noon. August N. Maxwell, 56, was northbound on Johnson Stripling Road
when--for unknown reasons--she ran off the road in the middle of a curve.
She crossed Chip Mizell Road and a private driveway before the vehicle
rolled over on its top. The Taylor County Sheriff's Office and Taylor Fire
Rescue assisted the Florida Highway Patrol at the scene.

Dawn Taylor with the Southern Pines Blues & BBQ Festival was in Charlotte, N.C., Monday morning
to promote the festival on the syndicated radio program, The John Boy and Billy Big Show. The radio
duo's Big Show Foods, which produces the John Boy and Billy Grilling Sauce, is the title sponsor of the
festival's sauce contest. During the program, they signed an electric guitar which will be given to the
winning entry. The bulk of-Taylor's interview will air today (Wednesday) at 9:50 a.m. Shown above

Give local merchants a

chance, shop at home

From time to time, I like to
address the topic of keeping
our shopping dollars local.
This is a very important
message, and one that
we must all work to get
across over and over again,
especially during the
upcoming holiday season.
*As business community
leaders, Chamber members
must take a lead role in,
trumpeting this very crucial'
When people you know
mention that they are
thinking about purchasing
something out of town, point
out to them that when they
do their shopping outside of
the area, the following chain
reaction is set into motion
which eventually affects
us all in a very negative
Obviously, local retailers
are the first to suffer, but it
doesn't end there. These
business owners and
their employees are also
consumers. If profits are
down at their own store, they
in turn will have less money
to spend at other stores,
reducing the profits of those
Reduced profits for local
businesses result in less
money being deposited with
banks, reducing the amount
of money available to be
loaned and reinvested in the
local community.
Businesses that are hit
especially hard. by out-of-
town competition may close,
decreasing property values
of commercial properties
and personal properties
alike, leaving less money
for public schools, street
maintenance and a whole
host of other public projects
and needs. Eventually,
the entire local economy,
and every local resident's
pocketbook, suffers in one
way or another.
Having pointed out
this chain of events, ask
the potential out-of-town
shopper if they have checked
to see if the product is

available locally. It never
ceases to amaze me the
number of people who have
lived in our area for several
years but are. unaware
that they can buy this or
that particular item right
here. They just assume.
they can't, so they shop
elsewhere. If possible,
give these individuals some
suggestions regarding which
local retailers niight have
the particular item they are

Dawn V. Taylor
Chamber Director

Assuming that the 'item
can be purchased locally,
the leading concern will
inevitably be price. Remind
your acquaintances that they
should not assume that out
of town retailers can always
beat the prices of Perry
retailers. If price is their'
main concern, tell them to
at least give local retailers a
chance to match or beat out-
of-town prices.
If a local retailer can
meet or beat the price,
then obviously there isn't
a problem. If the local
retailer's price is higher, then
tell the potential out-of-town
shoppers to remember to add
up the cost of gas and what
the wear and tear on their
car would be to drive out of
town. Adding these hidden
additional costs will give
them a more accurate idea
of what the "true" cost of
the item is if purchased out
of town.
SOf course, it never hurts
to point out to them also that

service, before and after the
purchase should be another
important key. A local store
should be in the position to
give better customer service
than an out of town store.
This additional level of
customer service could help
them to make an informed
purchase decision, and to
avoid buying something
that wasn't right for them.
Furthermore, remind them to
consider the additional time
and cost involved in getting
their purchased item serviced
out-of-town as opposed to
While these are all
considerations that local
consumers need to take into
account, local retailers also
have a responsibility to keep
local residents shopping
locally. They must work to
get their message out, again
and again. They need to
make their prices, all things
considered, competitive with
out-of town stores. They
need to provide better service
than out-of-town stores,
before and after the sale.
They also need to look
at how they can better
serve their customers,
including offering extended
or different hours, creative.
financing plans which
may be convenient to their
customers, a larger selection
of merchandise, and other
incentives for consumers to
shop locally.
Remember, the two most
important things local
business professionals
can do to keep consumers
shopping locally are to
spread the message of why
it is important and, more
importantly, to serve by
example. If local businesses
expect local residents to buy
locally, they must also buy

Thanksgiving meal because
of this unified effort.
We would also like
to recognize some local
businesses that contributed
to this event. A great big
"thank you" goes out to
Wilson Bait & Tackle,
Walmart, Pouncey's,
Barclay's, Save a Lot, Winn
Dixie and Golden Corral.
How awesome it is when a
community comes together
to meet the needs -and show
love to its neighbors.
Our Lord Jesus prayed
for us in John 17:23 saying,
"...May they experience
such perfect unity that
the world will know that
you sent me and that you
love them as much as you
love me." By our working
together to accomplish a
task that uplifts others, we
are demonstrating the love
of Jesus to the world!
Let's take advantage
of every opportunity to
work together to make
our community a better
Thank you all so very
much for everything you
did. It truly did make a
difference! God greatly
bless each of you.

The Taylor County High
boys soccer team improved
to 7-0 on the season (6-0
in district play) with an
8-0 win over Godby here
Monday night.
The Bulldogs were led
on offense by Chris Davis
with 3 goals, his 10th goal
in the past 3 games. Assists
to Davis were from Justin
Folsom, Luke Kallschmidt
and Daniel Wentworth.
Wentworth added two
goals of his own by heading
in two of Jonathan Thomas'
long throw-ins. Justin

assists from Kallschmidt
and Dustin Driver.
Once Taylor County
got up so quickly in the
1st half, the game turned
bad with unsportsman-like
penalties being assessed to
both teams. East Gadsden
eventually received an
ejection which left them
with 10 players on the

Rodney King said he then
instructed his team to slow

The Bulldogs trailed
0-1 going into half-time

and with the game being
shortened due to referee
issues, the 'Dogs only had

What is leading cause of wildfires? w-w-----

Out-of-control debris
burning remains the
most common cause of
wildfires in Taylor County,
accounting for 17 fires
which consumed 158 acres
over the past year.
That's according to
numbers from the Florida

Forest Service (FFS)
presented recently to the
Taylor County Commission
as part of the agency's
annual report of its activities
Over the period from July
1, 2011, to June 30, FFS
responded to 62 fires, down

to the previous year.
Forest Area Supervisor
Jack Smith credited
the reduced number to
the amount of rain the
county received this past
Although the number of
fires were down, the acreage
burned was up 233 to 194
due to the large number of
acres lost to fires caused by
debris burning.
The second most common
cause of wildfires was
incendiary, or intentionally
set, fires responsible for 16
fires and 43 acres burned.

Other causes included:
lightning, nine fires
and eight acres burned;
equipment, four fires and
6.7 acres; children, two fires
and 0.3 acre; campfires,
one fire and 0.5 acre; and
smoking, one fire and 0.7
"The support given to the
FFS by the Taylor County
Commission, Taylor County
Fire-Rescue, local volunteer
fire departments and
cooperators was once again
instrumental in helping
to limit the impact of
wildfires on Taylor County
residents," Smith said.
