Smoking' hot weekend


Southern Pines Blues & BBQ Festival mascots Muddy and Sizzle managed
to avoid the many smokers and grills on the festival grounds, instead posing
for photos with both children and the cook teams.


Local singer Chelsea Parker (right) joined blues musician Johnnie Marshall
and his band during their performance Saturday night.


Volunteers pass out samples during the People's Choice Competition
Saturday afternoon. Festival-goers had the opportunity to pay $5 and
sample 36 different barbecues cooked by the competing teams.


Rockinn blues, smoking' BBi


satisfies festival crowds


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
Mountains of barbecue
were cooked, judged and
eaten while hours of rockin'
blues music floated across
Forest Capital State Park
this past weekend at the
fifth annual Southern Pines
Blues & BBQ Festival.
Event organizers are
calling the fifth-year
festival the best-attended
yet and said preliminary
preparations for next year
are already underway.
Scores of barbecue
teams arrived from around
the country to compete in
five separate competitions
which generated more than
$17,000 in cash and prizes
for the winners.
"This event is growing
each year and becoming
a place cook teams want
to come and compete,"
Coordinator Dawn Taylor


said. "In all, we had about
60 teams with us this
year between the various
contests.
"Thanks to our wonderful
sponsors,, we were once
again able to offer free
admission to those who
wanted to come out and
enjoy great-tasting barbecue
along with some wonderful
blues music.
"Between the Kidz-Que
Grilling Contest and the
free children's fun area,
we had more families here
than ever before, which was
wonderful to see."
Among the various
barbecue competitions, the
top even was the Triple
Crown Invitational, for
which teams have been
competing in preliminary
events across Florida,
Georgia and Alabama
over the past year to earn a
coveted spot.


This year, 34 teams
qualified, including three
fresh off top 10 finishes
in the World Barbecue
Championship held in Las
Vegas, N.V., last month.
Swamp Boys were named
the Triple Crown grand
champion after placing
seventh in brisket and first
in both ribs and chicken,
winning $2,300 and a
smoker donated by Jack's
Old South, the cook team
led by television personality
Myron Mixon.
The Open Competition,
which like its name implies,
was open to all cookers, had
33 entries this year with a
number of teams from the
Invitational Competition
cooking in both contests.

Survivor



recounts



terrifying



fatal crash
The survivor in a two-vehicle crash that claimed the life
of a Greenville man Saturday afternoon, Dec. 8, said the
series of events leading up to the collision happened so fast
that she did not have time to be scared.
It was only after pulling herself from her vehicle and
"hunkering down" beside the road that shock set in-shock
that remains four days later.
"It was just so tragic; I know I was blessed. I tried to do
what I could to get out of his way, but it just happened. I
can live with bruises, they'll go away in time, but my heart
really goes out to the family of the man who didn't make
it," Jerrie Catherine Murphy, 53, of Perry, said Tuesday.
". Please see page 9



Spees family


posts a cash


reward for


information
The Spees family has posted a cash reward for information
leading to the arrest of the persons) responsible for
vandalism at the site of a memorial honoring two family
members who were killed in a tragic shooting incident in
December 2011.
A car ran into the two crosses that stand on the edge of the
Spees' family property bordering Johnson-Stripling Road.
'"They knocked one of the crosses completely over and.
the other cross was leaning to its side. They also broke
several items that had been placed around the bottom of
the crosses," said David Spees-the lone survivor of the
shooting incident that claimed the lives of his father, Lee
Spees Sr., and brother, Lee Spees Jr.
The vandalism happened just hours after the family held
a memorial service on the one-year anniversary of the
men's death Wednesday, Dec. 5.
"We have video of the crash and we can tell the vehicle
was a car. It probably has damage to the rear and the driver's
side rear. Anyone who has information is asked to contact
the Taylor County Sheriff's Office," Spees said.
Neighbor Paul McNutt has been charged with murder
and attempted murder for the shootings,.which allegedly
stemmed from a property dispute. The case continues to
work its way through the court system.
"We moved to Perry because it was such a safe
community. We never had to worry about locking our doors
or anything. Now, it's all different."
Recalling the day of the shooting, Spees said,
"When I saw Paul coming out of the house carrying a
shotgun-didn't see the pistol-I just thought 'Paul what
are you doing? You're just going to get in trouble with
bringing a gun out...' I never had any idea he was going to
shoot us."


Unemployment


rate for Taylor


continues fall


Taylor County's
unemployment rate dropped
for the third straight month
in October to 9.1 percent,
the lowest rate reported here
in the past three years.
October's rate was 0.4
percentage point lower
than September's rate of
9.5 percent. The year's
previous low had been the
9.2 percent rate reported in
April, a level it held into
May. June, however, saw
it rise to 9.6 percent and
July brought another half-
percentage point increase.
August stopped the rising
trend, bringing the rate
back into single digits at 9.9
percent.
For October, Taylor
County had 849 people
unemployed and 8,455
people employed, according
to numbers released recently
by the Florida Department
of Economic Opportunity


(DEO).
Among Taylor's
neighbors, Madison
County had the highest
unemployment rate with 10
percent, followed by Dixie
with 9.7 percent. Below
Taylor were Jefferson
County at 7.7 percent and
Lafayette at 6.3 percent. All
five counties saw drops in
October.
Taylor County had the
15th highest unemployment
rate among Florida's 67
counties. Hendry County
once again had the highest
rate in the state with 12.6
percent while Monroe
County boasted the lowest
with 4.7 percent.
Florida's seasonally
adjusted unemployment
rate dropped to 8.5 percent
in October, down 0.2
percentage point from
September and the lowest
rate since December 2008.

Editorial


Do you know what f "



makes you happy?


Dear Editor:
What is it that makes you
happy in life?
This is the question I
ask you. A lot of people
can answer the easy and,
obvious question to include
their hobbies,.activities and/
or interests, etc., that make
them happy. However,
many of us fail to realize
the underlying reason why
those events/things are
always at the tips of our
tongue when we are asked
this question. The thing
that many people may not
realize is, someone at some
time shared these same
memories with someone
they looked up to and now
are taking the time to show
you.
Most of the time some
of our favorite things were
taught to us gone by our
parents or someone very
close to us while we were
growing up. As kids or
young adults we fail to
realize how important these
new memories are to us--
"call it taking it for granted."
As we develop through life
we cherish these shared
moments carrying with us
our loved ones' memories
and sharing it with others.
We look to continue to do
these things through life,
not realizing that we are
still living that wonderful
childhood memory. If at
all possible I am sure we


would want the originator
of that memory to be right
next to us to share one more
memory. However we grow
up and move on, but we
continue to enjoy the things
1we have learned in our past.
Reflecting, now ask
yourself, what Would you
do if someone was to rip
that loved one from you by
taking their life? How would
you feel? Up the scale--what
if they were to take "two
generations" of the people
you loved the most and
also maimed another loved
one for life.. How would
you feel then? What do you
do?
Do you continue to praise
the Lord, and say that your
loved ones have gone to a
better place? Do you curse
the Lord, because as we
have learned to treat the
fellow man as you would
want to be treated, and you
shall not suffer? Do you get
revenge on the person that
committed these crimes?
There are so many questions
that you will ask yourself if
this situation was to arise in
your life.
Most of all you will
wonder, did I say I love you
enough? Were you able to
make them proud? Are they
happy withh the Wayi you
have turned out? You ma\
wonder if they were happy
and did they fulfill their
life's dreams? I ask you one


last time "What is it that
makes you happy in life?" I
am sure if you were to look
at the loved one that showed
you all the things you still
love to this day, you would
want to say something to
them. Maybe ,you would
say, thank you for loving me
and showing me how much
I mean to you, knowing that
you wanted to share these
amazing times with me.
In closing if this has
touched you, please remind
the person that showed you
everything they could that
you are thankful for their
time and affection.
Let the little things; go in
life, and focus your energy
on the things you can change
and make a difference in. In
life the 'things/people that
make you happy are: your
friends, 'family and loved
ones that surround you.
Take a moment to let them
know that they are loved,
becauseyou can never say it
enough and you never know
when the last time you will
be able to tell them how you
feel.
You-'are our father,
our brother, our son; our
protector, teacher, and most
of all, our best friends! We
will never forget that you
were taken from us, Lee
Spees Sr. and Lee Spees Jr.
We still love you and think
of you every day.
Lee and Rick Spees:

on, people, do you? I mean
if you do, why do we bother
to vote if the election is
decided by a small number
of states who have the most
people in them?
This method is very
outdated and should be
abolished as soon a's
possible and we as a nation
should start a movement
to do .so. Let's take back

Forefathers placed 'handcuffs'


on voting system, government


Dear Editor:
, I want to thank Mike
McGroarty for his article
on Nov. 28 on the Electoral
College vote and how it
works.
One thing he needed to
clarify was when a candidate
carries the majority of a
particular state he. wins
the whole state's electoral
vote. This is what wins the
election since some states
have more electoral votes


than others.
I would have one time
agreed in the fact the
Electoral College is an
outdated mode of electing
our president, however,
it is' another process of
our "forefathers" putting
"handcuffs" on our voting
system. America probably
would have fallen to
communism years ago if
it hadn't been for our two-
party system. However .the


"C" word comes under the
new names of liberals and
progressives.
Our forefathers also
gave us a "three branch"
government founded on
Isaiah 33.22 and they are the
legislative (my law giver),
the judiciary (my judge) and
the executive (my king),
These were the "handcuffs"
our forefathers put on this
government to keep one
branch from having, too
much power, which could
be an oligarchy.
Our president has
"thwarted" this system
by his executive orders,
which is a form of an
"Oligarchy." He needs to
step down and allow our
legislators legislate the
will of the people and. the
judiciary to.judge the laws
our legislature enacts and
the president to sign or veto
what has been placed on the
table to vote into law.
Thus is our legislature's
job and they are there by the
will of the people, which
is the government of this
"We the people" are the
government of this land, not
you Mr. Obama.

Youngsters join the cooking with Kidz-Quc Competition


BBQ
Continued from page 1
(second place) in Las Vegas,
finished fifth overall in the
Triple Crown and reserve
champion in the Open
Competition, as well as the
overall winner in the John
Boy & Billy Sauce Contest.
L.C. Cook and Cook's
Portable Smokehouse,
however, took home grand
champion in the Open
Competition, placing first in
brisket, second in chicken
and 10th in pork, \inning
around $2,100 in cash
prizes.
While the Open
Competition consists
of mostly professional
cook teams, it does have
a Backyard Division for
amateurs. Local cooker
Mike Deming and his Three
Little Pigs team placed
fourth in chicken, ribs, pork
and brisket, also picking up
the Homeboy Award.
Those attending the


festival had the opportunity
to judge the various
barbecues for themselves
in the People's Choice
Competition, which had
36 entries, the most ever
for the event. For a $5 fee,
participants could sample
all 36 barbecues--identified
only by number--and vote
for their favorites.
The winners were: third
place (tie), Budmeisters
(#1) and Pork Rindz
(#14); second place, Uncle
Kenny's (.34); and first
place, Forrest Fine Foods
(#15).
In the John Boy & Billy
Grilling Sauce Contest,
sponsored by Big Show
Foods, there were 65
entries this year spread
over categories consisting
of original, mustard and
hot. Local competitor
Kevin Kidd took home
second place in the mustard
category. Hillis, for winning
best overall, won $200
along with a guitar signed


by radio personalities John
Boy & Billy.
"John Boy & Billy have
been great sponsors for
the sauce contest over the
past several years and it
continues to be one of more
popular events," Taylor
said.
Even the kids were able
to join in the cooking with
the Kidz-Que Grilling
Competition, open to youth
ages 6 to 15.
In the 6-11 age category,
the competitions tried their
hand at hamburgers, with
everything but seasonings
and a spatula provided by
the festival, including an
apron and chef's hat to
keep. Deborah Markey and
Ceven Kidd, both of Taylor
County, took home first
and second place with John
Colomitz of Jacksonville
finishing in third.
Those ages 12-15 cooked
chicken breasts, and local
cooker Jack Deming placed
first, followed by Virginia


Blevins of Lake City in
second and Jayden Crowell
of Perry in third.
The rest of the field
included Trinity Omans,
Annelise French, Austin
Kidd, JJ Sundersland, Cole
Schwab, Kaitlyn Boyington,
Makyla Walker, Kayla
Sadler, Ella Goodman,
Kinsey Goodman and
Raylyn Phelps.
"Last year we had 10
entrants in the Kidz-Que and
this year we had 17, so it is
definitely growing," Taylor
said. "A big thanks to Taylor
County Fire-Rescue for
their assistance in lighting
the grills and overseeing the
contest to ensure everyone
stayed safe.
"Maybe some day in the
future one of this young
cookers will be hoisting the
trophy in the Triple Crown,"
she added.
The festival's official
mascots, Muddy and Sizzle,
were on hand both days,
posing for pictures with the


cook teams and guests, as
well as dancing along with
the music.
Before Saturday's
awards ceremony, the
pair stole the show during
a choreographed dance
routine which featured rock
classics and select sampling
from hit movies such as
"Wayne's World" and
"Titanic."
"Muddy and Sizzle were
a huge hit once again,"
Taylor said. "I've been told


they're already working on
a new routine for next year."
On the music side of the
festival, local bands Alibi
and Rain joined a line-up
which included Johnnie
Marshall, Franc Robert &
the Boxcar Tourists, The
Wisecrackers, 6th Street
R&B and Dottie South &
the Slackers. Local singer
Chelsea Parker also joined
Marshall and his band
onstage for a song Saturday
night.

The spirit of
Christmas could be
seen on every corner in
downtown Perry Friday
night. From a live
nativity and Christmas
carols to ho-ho-ho
visits with Santa and
sweet holiday treats,
the annual Downtown
Christmas Open House
attracted hundreds to
Perry's historic district.
Captured here are a
few scenes from the
busy night of activities.

A-5 Taco Times December 12, 2012


r-aoriet iz J* 1 A,


'Tis a little over two weeks before
Christmas and all over the world people are
as busy as little honeybees making honey.
Christmas trees are set up, colorful lights
are checked for defaults and ornaments are
unwrapped and put on the tree.
Over the years I have passed ornaments
to the children. Most of them were
inexpensive but they wanted them because
it reminded them of their Christmases
past. To my surprise, when I dug through
the pile of tissue paper protecting my
ornaments this year I was shocked to find
two strings of twinkle lights and a bag full
of plastic candy canes. I decided the lack
of ornaments was a good incentive to invest
in a few colorful balls to go with the candy
canes. And, both strings of lights refused to
twinkle, making it necessary to go shopping
for replacements.
When I arrived at what we laughingly call
our "Shopping Mall East" aka the dollar
store, I joined others on the Christmas
decoration aisle. I picked up several boxes
of ornaments; some were smooth in vibrant
colors of red, green, blue, silver and gold.
Others had glittery designs and there were
even boxes of ornaments made in the shape
of animals and imaginary characters.
I opted for the unbreakable balls in red
and silver for two reasons; the first reason
is our one-year-old grandson, Kellan, who
has sticky hands that can remove an object
faster than a speeding bullet. The other
reason is the shiny balls seemed to go best
with the red, green and white striped candy
canes. When the lights were in place I
plugged them in and uttered an appreciative
sigh as the tiny lights filled the room' with
color. I couldn't hold back the words to
"O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree" as
I hooked the balls and looped the candy
canes to the green branches. Taking a step
back to admire my work I was pleased. To
me, the tree was arrayed in traditional attire
and was complete.
I found out the next day that what I thought
looked classic seemed to lack character
in the eyes of some of the grandchildren.
"When are you going to finish decorating
the tree," was their suggestion as they
looked around for additional ornaments. "I
have finished," was my reply.
Later in the day I caved into the opinion
of the younger generation and decided to
compromise. I didn't add ornaments to
the tree but I did add a Santa in his sled, a
nutcracker, a reindeer and the wooden train
that has been in our family since the birth
of our first granddaughter, Nicole. I must
admit the comer of the family room looked
more festive with the toys underneath the
tree.
Seeing the tree in all its Christmas finery,
I am reminded of trees from my childhood
and teen years. The tree was the real deal,
not artificial. Daddy usually cut it at the
end of the day when the last log truck was
loaded. He'd attach it to the top of the log
truck where it would ride safely until he
pulled into our driveway on Center Street.
At the sound of his truck approaching we'd


gather and stand in awe at what we declared
to be the perfect tree. One of the boys
usually climbed up to collect the tree and
passed it down to Daddy. He'd find a bucket,
'fill it with dirt and bring the tree inside. The
smell of the freshly cut evergreen would
permeate the house with the most wondrous
smell. In fact, it smelled just like Christmas.
The evergreen smell would blend with the
fruit Daddy bought every year as he made
the trip to Miami to deliver wood chips to
the barbecue place.
Trimming the tree was a family affair.
When the tree was situated in a corer of
the living room, we carefully separated the
decorations and laid them in little piles on
the floor. Oh, how I wish I had some of
those ornaments in my possession today.
I'm sure they were bought at the dime store
in Perry and probably were inexpensive.
They would be priceless to me.
The Christmas ornaments from my
childhood included big colorful lights that
would bur your fingers if you dared to
touch them, glass ornaments with additional
glitter decorations, tinsel roping in red,
silver, green, blue and gold, and bubbling
lights that looked like little candles. We
would perch a big shiny star on the tallest
branch, add the lights and ornaments and
wrap the roping around and around the tree,
top to bottom. Silver tinsel icicles were
thrown by the handful to land on the loaded
tree. Angel-hair was smoothed over the
lights giving them a dreamy-muted glow.
They were the most beautiful trees in the
world to me and were tended daily with a sip
of water to keep the dirt in the bucket moist.
I don't have a clue how the sip of water
managed to keep the tree alive, but it did.
It was as green and fragrant on Christmas
day as it was when Daddy brought it home
two weeks before. I have been told you can
buy a product to spray on.your artificial tree
that will give it the evergreen smell. On my
next outing to the city, I'll look for it. It
would be nice to be surrounded by the smell
even though it doesn't happen the natural
way.
Things have a way of changing as the
years pass, but the change. doesn't take
away the wonder of the season or the
reason for the season. It's an opportunity to
celebrate the greatest love and present ever
given--the Christ Child. It's also the perfect
opportunity to share His love with all those
who come into our lives. As we practice
the joy of sharing, His love becomes an
all-year-long tradition. We realize there are
times a material gift is needed and there are
times when all a person needs is to have
someone be there for them.
I have a friend who keeps her tree
decorated all year long. She said she hasn't
put it away in two years. Makes me wonder:
would it be easier to share love if we kept
our Christmas trees out all year round as
a reminder of our first Christmas with all
its excitement and beauty? Of course, the
reminder of the tree will only reflect what is
already in our hearts, but, as my dear friend
is prone to say...."'couldn't hurt."

'Dogs continue unbeaten


season, beat Florida High


The Taylor County High
boys soccer team improved
to 8-0 on the season
following a 2-0 victory over
Florida High on Saturday at
Dorsett Stadium.
The win also boosted the
Bulldogs' district record
to 7-0 on the season with
only three district match-
ups remaining on the
schedule. The District 2, 2A
tournament will be held the
week of Jan. 21 at Florida
High.
Saturday's game was


close for much of the first
half until Taylor County's
Chris Davis got free on a
break-away and was taken
down inside the box by
Florida High's goalkeeper.
Justin Folsom stepped up to
take the awarded free kick
and calmly placed it into the
upper right corner to give
the 'Dogs a 1-0 lead at the
half.
Taylor County Coach
Rodney King said his
offense played a bit sloppy
at times but the defense


came through again led
by John Thomas, Jake
Smyrnios, Austin Wynn,
Ethan Allbritton and Gavin
Lewis.
Late in the second half,
Davis broke free again
to score on an assist by
Bulldog goalie Davis Helm.
Taylor County was slated
to travel to Rickards on
Tuesday and Chiles on
Wednesday before returning
home to face Leon on
Friday evening beginning at
7 p.m.

Kayaker is

recovering

after ordeal
A Brevard County angler
continues to recover after
a wave struck his kayak
recently and threw him into
the water near the Sebastian
Inlet jetties.
Stamatis Stomouli,
24, of Rockledge told a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) officer that he was
fishing for sharks and had
just reeled one in when
a wave hit and knocked
him out of the kayak. He
suffered no injuries from
the shark.
Some good Samaritans
had pulled Stomouli out of
the rough water and onto the
rocks just as FWC Officer
Dustin Lightsey arrived at
the scene.
It was a few minutes after
4 p.m.
Lightsey checked
Stomouli's vital signs,
which appeared stable, but
the victim was covered
with cuts from being
slammed into the rocks by
waves.
Shortly after Lightsey
got to Stomouli, Brevard
County Fire Rescue arrived,
and Lightsey and the
good Samaritans placed
the victim on a backboard
to hoist him to the top
of the jetty by rope and
ladder. Fire Rescue took
Stomouli to Homes
Regional Medical Center.
"If he had not been
wearing a PFD (personal
floatation device), I do
not think he would have
made it," said Officer
Lightsey.
"Mr. Stomouli said it
saved his life; he thought he
was going to die."

A-12 Taco Times December 12, 2012
L I I( h '.' : .


Franc Robert and the Boxcar Tourists were
among the highlights of this year's entertainment
line-up.


The second annual Kidz-Que Grilling Competition almost doubled its participation with 17 entrants
this year compared to 10 last year. The young cooks tested their skills cooking hamburgers or
chicken breasts depending on their age. Along with festival volunteers, personnel with Taylor County
Fire-Rescue were on hand to help supervise.


Festival-goers had many options in their pursuit
of barbecue, between the People's Choice
Competition and numerous vendors.


I I I
r~fl-BHH~ iHH...........^^
[Awia d^ l^iw Mwo^wni ^^m^^^^


The winners of the Kids-Que Grilling Contest 6-11 age group, who cooked
hamburgers, were: (front row, I to r) second place, Cevin Kidd; third place,
John Colomitz; and first place, Deborah Markey. In the 12-15 age group,
who cooked chicken breasts, the winners were: (back row, I to r) first
place, Jack Deming, second place, Virginia Blevins; and third place, Jayden
Crowell.


Kevin Kidd (right) and his Lucky Seven BBQ placed second in the mustard
sauce category of the 2012 John Boy & Billy Grilling Sauce Contest. This
was the second year in a row his sauce has placed in the contest. Big
Papa's Country Kitchen took first place in the original sauce category and
best overall, winning $200 and a guitar signed by radio personalities John
Boy and Billy.


Local cooker Mike Deming (left) took home the
Best Overall Homeboy Award. In the Triple Crown
Open Competition's Amateur Backyard Division,
he won with fourth place in chicken, pork, ribs
and brisket.


L.C. Cook (center) of Cook's Portable Smokehouse was the grand champion in the Triple Crown
Open Competition, placing first in brisket, second in chicken and 10th in pork. In addition to cash
prizes and banners, Cook was also given a wood-turned trophy crafted by local artisan Charles Bell.
