Flu


season


arrives
With the annual flu season
ramping up, local health
officials are urging people
to get a flu shot and work
to prevent the spread of the
disease.
According to Taylor
County Health Department
(TCHD) Director Stephen
Tullos, the current
season has been a
moderate one with his office,
receiving sporadic cases to
date.
The number of cases
so far is up from last
year, which had a relatively
light flu season, he
confirmed.
Tullos added that they
have seen a number of
patients experiencing
flu-like symptoms with
gastrointestinal issues who
are not testing positive for
flu.
As for what people
can do, TCHD
officials recommend the
following:
Protect yourself, protect
others--get a flu vaccine
every year.
Prevent the spread of
germs--cover coughs and
sneezes and wash hands
frequently.
To learn more, please
contact the Taylor County
Health Department at
(850) 584-5087 or visit

All schools review



security measures


In the wake of the
mass shooting at Sandy
Hook Elementary School
in Connecticut Friday
morning, local school
district officials said they
are reviewing their crisis
response plans and are
conducting a site by site
evaluation to ensure schools
here are secure against
intrusions.
"I can't think of a worse
tragedy that could befall
a school district," Taylor
County Superintendent
Paul Dyal said. "It's almost

through."
Friday's shooting claimed
the lives of 26 people,
including 20 children six
or seven years old. The
shooter, identified as Adam
Lanza, 20, killed himself at
the school.
"We used it as a wake-up
call," Dyal said. "We met
with site administrations
[Monday] and went over
their crisis management
plans. We reiterated the
importance of vigilance."

L. Arthur Lawrence Jr., who is a, former state attorney for the Third
Judicial Circuit, hired Bean back in 1977 to work as an assistant state
attorney.

Colleagues, friends, family

. honor longtime service


When retired First District
Court of Appeal Judge L.
Arthur Lawrence Jr. took
office as state attorney for
the Third Judicial Circuit in
the 1970s, all of the assistant
state attorneys then worked
just part-time.
"Except for one
position-everyone else
was part-time. So I started
hiring and hiring full-time.
When I interviewed Jim
(Bean), he was .okay: bul


I had two problems with
him-he didn't go to the
University of Florida or
Florida State University
and he just didn't talk like
us Southerners. I wondered
how persuasive he could
be with a jury, But how do
you tell someone you need
to work on your Southern
drawl? I decided to take a
chance on him," Lawrence
said.
.That chance paid off,


more than Lawrence or
even retiring Circuit Judge
James Roy Bean could have
anticipated.
Some 35 years later,
Lawrence was among a
list of very special guest
speakers who were on hand
Thursday, Dec. 13, to bid
Bean farewell as he retires
from his post as circuit
judge.

4-car crash leaves


Minor injuries were
reported in a four-vehicle
crash that snarled traffic
at the intersection of
Bryon Butler Parkway and
Jefferson Street Sunday
afternoon, Dec. 16.
While no names have
been released, the Perry
Police Department (PPD)
reported that three of the
vehicles were registered in
Taylor County and a fourth
was from Miramar Beach
(Fla.).
The crash happened
around 1 p.m. in front of
Hardees and Kentucky
Fried Chicken. A vehicle
traveling south on U.S.
19/Byron Butler Parkway
failed to yield the right-of-
way to a second vehicle that


minor injuries


was traveling north on U.S.
19.
"The first vehicle
attempted to make a left turn
in front of the oncoming
vehicle. The second vehicle
struck' the first vehicle in
the passenger's side door,
causing the first vehicle to
crash head-on with a third
automobile that was stopped
on Jefferson (headed west on
Puckett Road). The impact
pushed the third vehicle
into the front of the vehicle
sitting behind it," Capt.
Jamie Cruse explained.
"The driver of the second
vehicle said they had a
green light; the drivers of
the third and fourth vehicle
confirmed that statement,
noting that the driver of the


first vehicle had a green
light, but did not have a
green arrow to make the
turn."
Ptl. Jamin Cephus handled
the crash investigation. The
driver of the first vehicle
was found to be at fault
for violation of right-of-
way (thus causing the
crash).
The busy intersection was
also the scene of a hit-and-
run crash that happened a
few days earlier, on Dec. 13.
In that case, a Toyota truck
rear-ended another vehicle
and left the scene without
providing any information
to the other driver.
The vehicle, driven by a
man, was last seen turning
onto Highway 19 South.

history books&..

Monday afternoon's swearing-in ceremony for.Ta lor
County's constitutional officers was filled n ith a number of
elements worthy of future historical footnotes.
First, it was the last swearing-in ceremony to be conducted
by retiring County Judge Stephen "Buddy" Murphy.
Second, it was the sixth swearing-in for Clerk of Cour
Annie Mae Murphy-who is now officially one of the
longest serving clerks in Taylor County's history.
Lastly, it marked the beginning of Mark Wiggins' lirst
term as Taylor County Tax Collector.
In her opening remarks, Supervisor of Elections Dana
Southerland welcomed elected officials and their families
to the ceremony.
"I would like to say thank you for your willingness to be
a public servant...as I often tell my staff, when we work
together, we can do great things for Taylor County," she
said.
L.E. "Bummy" Williams was the first to take the podium
in front of Judge Murphy to reaffirm his oath and begin a
fifth term as sheriff of Taylor County.

Yes Virginia, there


is a Santa Claus


Editor's Note: In 1897, eight-year-old Virginia
O'Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York's
Sun. The response was printed as an unsigned
editorial Sept. 21, 1897. Written by Francis
Pharcellus Church, the answer to Virginia's
question has become history's most reprinted
newspaper editorial, appearing in part or whole
in dozens of languages in books, movies and
other editorials, and on posters and stamps.

Dear Editor:
I am 8 years old.
Some of my little friends say
there is no Santa Claus.
Papa says, "If you see it in The
Sun it's so."
Please tell me the truth; is there
a Santa Claus?
Virginia O'Hanlon
115 West 95th Street

VIRGINIA, your -"
little friends are .
wrong. They haye
been affected by
the skepticism of a
skeptical age. They'
do not believe
except they see.
They think that
nothing can be which is
not comprehensible by their
little minds. All minds, Virginia,
whether they be men's or
children's, are little. In this great
universe of ours man is a mere
insect, an ant, in his intellect, as
compared with the boundless
world about him, as measured.
by the intelligence capable of
grasping the whole of truth and
knowledge.
Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa
Claus. He exists as certainly as
love and generosity and devotion
exist, and you know that they"
abound and give to your life its
highest beauty and joy. Alas!
how dreary would be the world
if there were no Santa Claus. It
would be as dreary as if there
were no VIRGINIAS. There
would be no childlike faith then,
no poetry, no romance to make


tolerable this, existence. We should
have no enjoyment, except in
sense and sight. The eternal light
with which childhood fills the
world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus!
You might as well not believe
in fairies! You might get your
papa to hire men to watch in all
the chimneys on Christmas Eve
to catch Santa Claus, but' even
if they did not see Santa Claus
coming down, what would that
prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus,
but that is no sign that there is no
Santa Claus. The most real things
in the world are those
That neither children
Snor men can see. Did
you ever see fairies
dancing on the
Slawn? Of course
Snot, but that's no
proof that they are
not there. Nobody
S can conceive or
imagine all the
wonders there
are unseen and
unseeable in the
world.
You may tear apart
the baby's rattle and see
what makes the noise inside, but
there is a veil covering the unseen
world which not the strongest
man, nor even the united strength
of all the strongest men that ever
lived, could tear apart. Only faith,
fancy, poetry, love, romance, can
push aside that curtain and view
and picture the supernal beauty
and glory beyond. Is it all real?
Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world
there is nothing else real and
abiding.
No Santa Claus! Thank God!
he lives, and he lives forever..
A thousand years from now,
Virginia, nay, ten times ten,
thousand years from now, he will
continue to make glad the heart
of childhood.


Dear Editor:
Untiltoday, I have avoided
all news of the Sandy
Hook Elementary School
massacre. My .heart is
broken for those children...
the dead and the ones left to
live with their experience.
And my sympathies to those
relatives who have lost such
dear loved ones.
I searched for news today
because I wanted to know
what could have caused


Taco


such a horrible crime. "He
had a personality disorder",
according to Yahoo News.
Exactly what I feared--
he had a mental illness
diagnosis.
Folks live in fear from
the stigma of mental illness;
happenings like this frighten
even more. Mental illness is
very complicated and exists
on a spectrum. Untreated,
a person can indeed go
crazy. Treated with caring',

a person can live a life with
some sense of dignity and
meaning.
Even in a manic or most
depressed state, it is just
not in'the heart of most
folks with mental illness to
commit such horror as the
young man in Connecticut
committed last week. The
vast majority of folks who
suffer from mental illness
are not cruel demented
monsters.
There are mental illnesses
that result from some
anomaly in the brain and are
considered to be biological
in nature-nothing can be
done to prevent them. But
often a mental illness results
from cruelty in childhood or
even later.
Ultimately, it is hatred,
violence, and the lack of
teaching children basic
kindness, respect for others,
and our lack of extending
compassion, that creates
the monsters in our society
who could heartlessly kill
innocent children.
As a society we are
all responsible for that
teaching: parents, teachers,
relatives, friends; those with
power, institutions, media,
and anyone with the good
of our society in mind.
Model kindness; extend
compassion; counter hatred
and our society will be a
healthier, less violent place
for us all.

Christmas 2012


I don't know what it was
about the Macy's Thanksgiving
Day Parade that struck me so
profoundly this year and stayed
with me throughout December,
but it was something.
I have been .watching, the
parade for nie~ily six decades-
the first one probably out of'
compulsion. "Let's sit down
and:- watch the parade,", :my
mother always urged, for. she
preferred fantasy to a dirty
kitchen any day of the' week.
I was an only child and didn't
know you could refuse to do
what your parents suggested.
So I sat there.
Watched the parade.
Wondered how long it took to
blow up those balloons.
Considered how much fun it
would be to march down the
streets of New York.
Wished I was waving from the
bow of a float.
Smiled at the crowd.
Enjoyed the confetti.
Marveled at the Rockettes.
In my earlier years, I zoned in
and out of reality, wondering
if my friends would be around
to play in the yard later that
day. As years progressed, I
wondered if my friends were
going out that night, and what I
might wear.
"Isn't this great?" my
mother would always say and
I obediently confirmed that it
was.
For the next decade, I only
casually watched the parade
as I passed through the room
where, on Thanksgiving Day, it
would be playing.
Eventually, however, I found
myself putting my own children
in front of the television set
and urging them to watch.
"Isn't it wonderful? I always
asked, for I needed to get back
to my dirty kitchen. "Don't
move," I threatened playfully.
"I'll bring snacks."
Those days have left me too.
This year on Thanksgiving
morning, in a house that's

Merry Christmas

getting quieter, I cleared a
path to the sofa while squash
casseroles and sweet potato
Ssouffl6s baked in the oven.
I. needed fantasy, too, and I
found it. At my age, I shouldn't
be so awestruck by gigantic
balloons, professionally
crafted floats, precision bands,
phenomenal cheerleaders,
outstanding musicians and
corporate kindness, but I wag.
Is it possible that Macy's
Thanksgiving 'Day Parade
showcases some of the finer:
aspects of our culture?
I think it's so: children awe-
struck by the color and beauty
of the season, families putting
aside work for a day to be
together, enthusiastic crowds
clapping for marching bands
and their musicians.
On that day, there were
no news reports of shooting
tragedies, no claims of abuse,
no charges of embezzlement
within the ranks of the parade
or perceived threats of chemical
warfare (as far as the public
knows). The financial cliff
was nowhere on the route. The
weather was grand. The Dow
Jones was steady.-
America needed a day like
that.
.American needs more days
like that.
Santa Claus always puts the
finishing touch on the annual
parade, and officially kicks off
the Christmas season:. While
Macy's is naturally thinking
retail abundance, the rest of
us can enjoy its abundance of
good will, hoping for a holiday
season--as well as a new year--
aboundcing-with blessings.
Even now, the blessings are
many--although dimmed by
a national shadow of tragedy
and sadness. It is my hope
that your Christmas prayer
acknowledges the goodness
that shines through all 365
days a year.
Now,'and in 2013, may we
never fail to notice.

TIDBITS: Silent night, silent prayers


By SARAH HALL
Happy Holidays
and
Season's Greetings!
A lifetime is too short and too tedious
that even our warmest words and dearest
deeds are simply too few for those we care
for and love.
So let our thoughtfulness, smiles and
kindnesses be used to brighten their days
and touch their hearts.
Let's always appreciate life.

Special prayers
Special prayers of comfort for the Rev.
J.C. Bentley of Daytona Beach (undergoing
rehabilitation--he is a former pastor of New
Brooklyn).
We also pray for Christine. Holmes


at Doctors' Memorial Hospital; Paula
Graham, Mildred Alexander and Lovette
Brasby, all at Tallahassee Memorial;
Frankie Sermons, Mary "Topsy" Jones,
Sidney Patterson and all the residents at
Marshall Rehabilitation. Don't forget them
during the holidays
In bereavement, we remember the
families of the late John Henry Jackson.
Very special prayers of comfort and
solace are offered for the many families
touched by the tragedy in Newtown, Conn.

Silent prayers
Out of silence...music.
Out of darkness and despair...light.
Out of uncertainty and insecurity...
promise, faith, hope.
We must continue to trust an Almighty,
Loving God...for Life.

At Eagle, Lang lakes

FWC re-opens ramps

closed due to Debby
Access to the three boat ramps at Eagle Lake and the road
leading to the ramp at Lang Lake have re-opened.
PotashCorp-White Springs closed access to the ramps
May 1 to begin rebuilding the culvert at Eagle Lake in
Hamilton County. Delays caused by Tropical Storm Debby
extended the closure.
"I'm happy to report that access to the ramps at Eagle
and Lang lakes has been restored," said Brian Hilton, a
freshwater fisheries biologist with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.

FWC to consider new

imperiled species plan
To achieve long-term survival for 60 imperiled wildlife
species, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) recently discussed a new conservation
model.
Creating the Imperiled Species Management Plan will
define measurable objectives and actions to manage and
conserve these animals to keep them part of Florida's wildlife
forever, officials said.
Staff updated commissioners on how they will integrate
broad conservation strategies with specific actions for
each wildlife species. The plan will include habitat
conservation; wildlife management; measurable objectives
(including timeframes); possible incentives; potential rule
recommendations; and consideration of economic, ecological
and social impacts.
Typically, the FWC has developed and implemented
separate management plans for individual species such as the
bald eagle, Florida black bear, gopher .tortoise and Florida
manatee.
Opportunities for input from stakeholders and the public
will be sought as components of the plan are rolled out in
draft form in 2013.

white Cdhistmas


In keeping with a holiday tradition, Bob Bell was the featured guest for the December meeting of the Perry Garden Club, showcasing five designs over
which members could "ooh" and "ahh." For the day, "White Christmas" was Bell's theme with lilies and carnations providing a glimmer of white, against
the sparkle of spray-painted papyrus glittery ribbons, gilded seed pods from a locust tree, pinecones dipped in a whitewash, and natural accents such
as hypericum berries and sculpted palmetto. Along with Bell, Bettie Page is pictured a swag of cedar which featured a bow of aspidistra; Wynne Driscoll
holds an arrangement of Frasier fir with a hint of Christmas red; and Laura Mock does her job as auctioneer. The five designs generated several hundred
dollars for Garden Club projects.

He added that he feels
"very confident" about the
district's preparedness, and
the key to maintaining that
preparedness is practice.
Each site conducts a
"code red lockdown" drill
once each nine-weeks in
addition to monthly fire
drills.
In late August, several
local schools were placed
on lockdown following an
unrelated stabbing incident
that occurred nearby. Law
enforcement authorities
said, at the time, that the'
lockdown was ordered as a
Precaution.
When asked how the
schools reacted to incidents
like these, Dyal said "really,
really well.
"After a code red
lockdown, we require the
site to do an evaluation and
we review it."
The district is also
conducting a walk-through
of each site to confirm that
every access point is secure
during the school day, Dyal
added.
As for how students here
are dealing with the tragedy

Prayer of thanks


PUBLIC SERVANT
Continued from page 1
"I guess you could say I am
responsible for him being in
Taylor County," Lawrence
noted, adding his praise for
Bean's distinguished career
on the bench and as a public
service.
Former state attorney
Jerry Blair commended
Bean for his "dignity and
decorum...it made you a
good prosecutor, a good
circuit judge, a good public
servant."
On a lighter note, Blair
added, "I am here to tell you
there is life after retirement


and it ain't bad."
Bean's fellow judges
from the third circuit were
on hand for the ceremony as
well as a courtroom full of
colleagues and friends.
In his closing remarks
Bean declined to approach
the podium, but instead
stepped up to the familiar
bench where he has sat and
meted out justice for the
past 20 years.
"I would like to offer a
prayer of thanksgiving,"
he said before paying his
own tribute to his wife, son,
mentors and fellow court
officers.

'You better watch out, you better not cry;


Santa Claus is coming to Taylor County'


By VICTORIA ALLBRITTON,
ASHLEY ANDERSON,
HANNAH BLANCO, ABIGAIL
BRATCHER, KAYLA
CROWLEY, MITCHELL
DAVIS, DORA GIACOMAN-
SOTO, JE'DA HOLMES and
GARRETT MCCOY
"You better watch out,
you better not cry. You
better not pout I'm telling
you why, Santa Claus is
coming to town."
As the years progress and
we "mature," we rapidly
lose the grip on our belief
in Santa Claus. However,
in today's society it is more
important than ever to have
someone to look up to and
admire.
Many of today's youth
scoff at the image of a
big man with a beard, in a
bright red suit, delivering
toys through a chimney
to children. But for the
students of Taylor County
High School, however,
'Santa is more than just a
man with a belly like a bowl
full of jelly. To some, he is
hope.
As a high school student,
seeing Santa Claus gets you
in the spirit of Christmas.
For some students, the
reality of a great Christmas
morning will never come.
However, seeing the
abundance of decorations
that fill the halls inspires
cheer and warmth inside.
"He sees you when you're
sleeping; he knows when
you're awake. He knows if
you've been bad or good, so
be good for goodness sake!"
In high school, the image of
Santa is not usually a man
with a sack of toys.
For some, he is the
epitome of Christmas.
Having someone such
as Santa to look up to
and admire encourages
good behavior in schools.
Students know that
having good behavior will
ensure a good Christmas
morning.
Those who don't believe
have been affected by the
skepticism of a skeptical
age. It's important for
individuals of ALL ages to
have.something to believe


in. And so they do. Year
after year, Santa Claus
survives the scoffers and the
Scrooges and the 6-year-
old playground skeptics.
He endures belittling
commercials that portray
him shopping at Target
or taking directions from
an iPhone. He shrugs off
scolders'who say his bagful
of toys overshadows the
reason for the season.
Could it be that all the
individuals who "Bah-
humbug" at Santa are just in
denial of their true belief in
Christmas? Could it be they
too believe in Santa Claus
and just don't have the
courage to express their true
inner thoughts and feelings
about the matter?
Why do we believe?
For many students, Santa
is a way of holding on
to precious childhood
memories.
For others, as we grow
and evolve into bright
young men and women, we
begin to understand the true
meaning of Christmas. As
kids, we looked to Santa
as being simply, the "gift
bringer."
Now we embrace
the concept of Santa
symbolizing generosity.
Sometimes the joy of
giving is more rewarding
than receiving. Seeing
someone's face light up
when they open a heartfelt
gift brings more delight to
the giver than opening their
own present. Experiences


such as these reinforce the
true meaning of the holiday
season.
Miraculous events have
been documented to occur
around Christmas. It is
extraordinarily improbable
that these events are by
accident. What other
holiday could bring people
together to believe in a
single individual who is so
selfless as to dedicate his
entire year toward making
others happy?
In order to mirror his
actions, people try to
embody his spirit by
donating their time and
energy to bring joy to
everyone around them.
Therefore, it. is far more
probable that Santa Claus
caused these random acts of
kindness to occur rather than
by simple happenstance.
Each year, NORAD
issues an official running
report tracking the arrival
of Santa Claus and his
reindeer. Could everyone,
in such a critical part in the
defense of the US, Canada,
and Greenland all be
wrong?
If the United States'
political powers are willing
to put forth monetary.
support to prove such a
seemingly outlandish claim,
then surely there can be no
doubt that Ole Saint Nick is
more than just a children's
fairy tale.
The most real things
in the world are those
that neither children' nor

McCoy.


men can see. No one can
conceive or imagine all the
wonders there are unseen
and unseeable in the world.
Hebrew 11:1 states, "Now
faith is being sure of what
we hope forand certain of
what we do not see."
So we fearlessly and
confidently shout it from
the rooftops, "YES, Taylor
County! There IS A SANTA
CLAUS!"
