Active


meth lab

is found
'Taylor County Sheriff's
Office (TCSO) investigators
discovered an active
methamphetamine lab at a
property off Beach Road
Friday, Jan. 4, and have
identified a "person of
interest" in the case.
The meth lab was found at
1885 Donald Russell Road
around 5 p.m. by TCSO's
Bryan Hayden and Rusty
Davis.
"We have one person
in custody on unrelated
charges; when we move
forward, we anticipate
bringing charges of
felony possession of
drug paraphernalia and
attempting to manufacture
meth," Capt. Ron Rice said.
"Officers were on the
scene for most of the night
Friday while a professional
clean-up crew was brought
in to dismantle and remove
the lab."

with 'C'


grade

Taylor County High
School earned a "C" for
the 2011-12 school year,
missing out on a "B" by 10
points or less for the second
straight year.
The Florida Department
of Education (DOE) was
once again late announcing
Florida's high school
grades, which have been
typically released in early
December.
The high school was
the only school in Taylor
County to maintain its
grade from the previous
year. In results released last
summer, Ta lor Count%
Middle School fell from an
"A" to a "B" while Taylor
County Elementary School
and Steinhatchee School
both from fell from a "C" to
a "D."
Unlike those grades,
which are based entirely
on students' scores on
assessment testing--namely
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test or state-
mandated end-of-course
exams--50 percent of-
high school grades are
based on graduation rates,
accelerated curriculum
(advanced placement
courses) participation and
performance as well as SAT
and ACT test results.
For 2011-12, TCHS
earned 980 points, which
is just 10 points below the
required 990 for a "B"
grade.
"The good thing is we
were 10 points from a 'B,'"
Superintendent Paul Dyal
said. "There are a few places
where we felt we could do
better.

of the suspect and we are

Taylor County Sheriff's
Office (TCSO) Capt. Ron
Rice said.
The suspect is described
as a white male in his 40s,
approximately 5'11" tall,
with brown hair and a stocky
build. He was wearing a
black knit hat at the time of
the robbery.
TCSO dispatchers
received a report of the
robbery at 2:15 a.m.
When officers arrived
at the scene-located at
the intersection of U.S.
Highway 19 and C.R. 30-
they were able to obtain a
description of the suspect's

Bill Blue was sworn in as county judge during an investiture ceremony held Thursday, Jan. 3, at
the Taylor County Courthouse. Dozens of family members, friends and colleagues filled the third'
floor courtroom to witness the occasion. Above, Circuit Judge Greg Parker (left) administers the
oath of office as Blue's wife, Lori, and children William, Henry and Elizabeth, stand witness. Also

UnitedWay:


Watch us growl

The Taylor County United Way Campaign has unveiled
its new tree-themed meter at the county courthouse;
documenting its efforts to meet this year's $275,000 fund-
raising goal.
The new display replaces the long-standing Life-Saver
meter, which was retired this year.
Campaign tri-chairs Mark Wentworth, Mark Massey and.
Richard "Dick" Jarvis said the idea to use a tree was based
on Taylor County's forestry heritage.
To celebrate the new display, volunteers gathered Tuesday
morning to attach the first several segments to showcase the
$164,000 collected so far. Each segment represents $25,000
in fund-raising.
"We've been working hard on the campaign since the
fall, but we just got our new sign up," Campaign Associate
Glenda Hamby said. "The campaign team and our tri-chairs
are pulling together and we will continue to campaign
through next month."

THINKING OUT LOUD.....

Flying Turtles and Six-Toed Cats


2 A- TaCO TimeS Januar 9 2013


The news item about the
flying turtles wasn't very big
but it caught my attention.
Then, later, it developed
that it was just the first such
item. You may think that
turtles can't fly, but your
spendthrift government
has provided the means for
them to fly to Florida for
winter vacations, then fly
back north next summer.
Honest!
You see, these are
federally-protected sea
turtles, and extraordinary
efforts must: be made to
protect them from. all
dangers--e6en the climate:
In warmer weather
they hang around the
Massachusetts coast, then
migrate southward as
winter approaches. Many
other critters do likewise,
but most are not protected
by the might of the federal
government.
Well, after most of the
turtles had departed from
Massachusetts about 20
were found along the coast
by alert turtle seekers. The
news item doesn't mention
whether these are volunteers
or paid government
employees. These well-
meaning souls determined
that the turtles .were cold
and, for some reason,
determined that something
must be done about that..
What to do? Page the U.S.
Coast Guard, more famous
for rescuing humans in peril
than reptiles. "Someone
in government" engaged.
the Coast Guard to fly the"
20 chilly turtles to lorida,
where -they were placed
in warm environments
with plans to return them
to Massachusetts next
summer. Winter vacations
in Florida for turtles at your
expense. Stop laughing! I'm
serious. Later I learned that
many more turtles received
the same treatment.
Aside from the foolish


use of our tax dollars, I am
concerned that these well-
meaning folk are battling
one of the Creator's basic
laws--survival. of the
fittest in the natural world.
That law ensures that
the strongest critters will,
survive, guaranteeing that
the species will continue
until it is time for it to fade
from the scene. Enabling the
weakest turtles to survive,
temporarily, weakens the
gene pool.
The story about the
six-toed cats describes
government,in a' different
function, according 'to a
recent column by Jonah
Goldberg.
The cats in question
reside in Key West at the
Hemingway Home and
Museum.' Generations of
six-toed cats have lived at
the museum, their ancestors
being left there when writer
Ernest Hemingway departed
this life many years ago.
The folks who operate the
museum treat them well,
spaying and neutering some
to limit the overall number.
They do this because the
cats are a tourist attraction,
helping create income for
the museum.
;For reasons not clear,
complaints from local
residents about the
Presence of the cats came
to the attention of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
SSuch'complaints usually are
dealt with by local animal
control agencies. I assume
that some dusty government
regulation .,dealing with
cats in museums allows
the federal government to
intervene in local animal
control matters. And the
USDA lhas done just that
.for about 10.years. Being
.a government 'agency, it
was necessary, for them to
issue pages of absolutely
ridiculous rules about how
the museum is to control the

cats.
Space doesn't permit me
to itemize those rules, but
one requires the museum
to keep the cats within its
property, hiring a night
watchman to guarantee that
they, stay there. I can picture
the poor watch person
trying to herd cats back
inside every night.
The museum has battled
the USDA for about 10 years
over this matter, but a federal
appeals court recently ruled
that the museum must
comply with the rules. If
I ran the museum I would
now claim non-ownership,
let all of the cats go, quit
neutering them and let them
multiply' like--well, like
feral cats. I'm pretty sure
that would take the matter
out of federal government
jurisdiction and return it to
the local government, where
it belongs.

about these two very
different matters is that

not of my methodology. '
Here is my "thank you" note:
I now have more jar openers
than I have jars. After a column
on the difficult process of freeing
the contents of any jar, I received
countless rubber jar openers as
well as a set of grips which look

to instructions on the "old-timey"

Many thanks to the reader

She attached her recipe for
"Crispy Oven-Baked Bacon."
Line a baking sheet with foil.
This will make clean-up easier
later. Arrange bacon slices on
'the foil and place the baking
sheet in the center rack of a
cold oven. Close oven door.
Turn oven to 400 degrees and

20 minutes later. As soon as
the bacon is golden brown, but
not excessively crisp, it's done.
The exact time.will depend on
the thickness of the bacon and
your oven.
Remove the pan from the
oven. Transfer the bacon to
another sheet pan lined with
paper towels to absorb the fat."
.She added, "Remember,
don't pre-heat the oven. Make
sure the oven is cold when you
put the bacon in." According to
this woman, who also enjoys
'The Essence.of Frying Bacon,'
you can undercook the bacon,
cool it and freeze in a ziplock
bag. Then to reheat, cook two
slices in the microwave on
medium power for 30 seconds
or so." And she had variations!!'
Dredge bacon in flour or corn
meal before baking.
Or, sprinkle with brown sugar
and freshly ground black pepper.
She concluded, "If you insist
on frying bacon, here is an aloe
plant. Keep it in your kitchen
and if you get burned, break off
a piece, using the gel to coat the
burn. It works great, even on
sunburn.'

"There are several areas
that we didn't do as well as
we should have. It points
out some areas to
emphasize."
Last year, DOE made
significant changes to the
grading scales for the FCAT
and scores here fell in many


grades. In response, DOE
suspended a practice for this
year only in which schools
which do not show enough
learning gains among the
lowest 25 percentile of
students are lowered a
grade. Dyal said TCHS has
improved its scores among
those students and would
not have had its grade
lowered if the policy had
been in place for 2011-12.


Nearby high schools
mostly fared better than
TCHS, with Madison
County High School and

"It seems that after

/ M U' a family tradition around the piano


- By FLORRIE BURROUGHS
There were eightmembers
of my immediate family-- 4
brothers and one sister and
our Daddy and Mother who
went home to be with the
Lord in 1997 and 2005,
respectively. As far back
as I can recall, music has
always been an important
part of our lives. Anytime
we were together, one could
find us around the piano and
singing. I remember a lot
of gatherings that included
aunts, uncles and cousins
and always we sang.


My Dad, /Lawrence
Rowell, played guitar., I


recall him standing by the
piano, while my young
hands played the keyboard.
He would play "Under the
Double Eagle," "Wildwood
Flower" and other songs.
After hearing him play I
would mimic him on the
piano. I suppose that is
when we learned I had
been blessed with the gift
of "playing by ear." My
music has brought me joy
in times of sadness and has
enabled me to worship my
Lord daily. My Mother,
Virginia Tedder Rowell,
had a beautiful alto voice
and she sang in the choir at


our church as long as she
was able. Today, three of
her children-two of my
brothers and I, as well as
.my sister-in-law, sing in the
same choir. My brothers
have beautiful bass voices;
it is a thrill for me to hear
them behind me in the choir.
About the piano, when
my husband Joe and I
moved back to Shady Grove
from Gainesville, I owned a
piano. We were living in
our motor home at the time
and had the piano in storage.
When I learned that a friend
wanted one for her daughter
to learn to play, I gave it


to them. Since 2004 I had
been without a piano and-
longed to have one in my
home. I also felt that I was
losing my ability to play by
not having access to, a piano.
I began looking online and
found one in Gainesville,
that was well priced. A
friend in Gainesville who
owns a music .store sent
his technician to check out
the piano for 'me before
I purchased it. It is a
beautiful Kimball, like-new
piano with a great sound.
Music-there is nothing
like it, especially music that
uplifts the heart and soul!


Gainesville. Formal invitations will be sent.

Thank you, thank you...

The Rev. Izell

Sister Geraldine Sparrow,

Just know
There is a book (the
Bible) that's a chart for us
to steer by, to keep us from
sinking to the bottom of the
sea, and to show us where
the harbor is, and how to
reach it without running on
rocks and bars. Many things
in the Bible, we do not--and
may never-understand, but
being faithful in our reading
and studying under the
guidance of the Holy Spirit,
He will reveal to us what is
needed and how to gain the
insight that we need.
It answers all the
questions of life and in it
we find insight, strength
and.knowledge.

Watts of Perry will lead
revival services at the

Rosemary Demps at home,
and for Lucille Lester, who
is also at home.
We also pray for families
in this community in
bereavement: the families
of the late Deacon A.D.
Jones and the families of
the late Brother Sidney
Patterson.


Be a blessing!
If you want to receive
more love in this new year,
learn to give more love to
all those around you..
If you want to earn more
respect in 2013, learn to be
more respectful of others
you come in contact with.
If you want more laughter
in your life during 2013,
learn to appreciate the joys
of others.
If you want to be blessed
more in the new year, learn
to be a blessing to others.

Let's


Talk
By DELORES WALKER


Words matter

Once again I found a story in a comment from
a friend. She posted an email about the seasons
of life that divide our years into Spring, Summer,
Fall and Winter. According to the originator of
the text we start out with the proverbial spring
chicken stage of childhood and meander through
the carefree summer days of youth. By the time
we reach adulthood we start the rapid fall of life
ending up with the short days of winter bringing
our lives to their conclusion.
While I basically agree with the concept, there
was one statement that stood out to me. No matter
what stage of life we are experiencing there is one
important thing to remember: Life is a gift. It is
seen in the beautiful toothless smile of a newborn
and heard in the laughter of an innocent child. It
is expressed in the newfound freedom of teens
who venture into the flow of life without parental
presence and finally, it is found in the words
shared from the heart of a caring adult.
Each stage of life should be lived to the'fullest
and we should always be generous with the gifts
God has graced us with. It brings to mind our
one-year-old Kellan. He has not mastered the gift
of language but he is adept at sharing love.'Most
anyone who comes near is treated to his upraised
arms giving you permission to pick him up. As
you cuddle him close his little arms will circle your
neck in the sweetest hugs in town. His actions
speak loud and dear. His big brother Sawyer,
at almost three years old, has the vocabulary to
verbally let you know that he loves you. The older
grandchildren--ages six to 16--all have their
unique way of wrapping me around their fingers.
They love me and they show it daily. Our mutual
admiration society doesn't end there. Our adult
children and grandchildren openly express their
love to me and to each other.
Along with these blessings come the added
blessing of friends. Many of them are friends in
Perry that I have known since we were children.
We stay in touch through the magic of Facebook
and email. Their gifts of caring and love through
their words enrich my life daily. It reminds me of
Proverbs 15:23: "A man hath joy by the answer of
his mouth and a word spoken in due season, how
good it is."
We have a new year before us. It is a year filled
with possibilities. When we come to the close of
2013, I pray that each of us will have lived life to
the fullest and said all the things we want our loved
ones to remember about us. The fact is, our words
frame others' memories of us. When I think of my
Daddy I remember his stories. Mama's memory
is tied up with the love of music. My big brother
Bobby brings to mind great kindness, my sister
Marjorie and brother Ted, no longer a part of this
earthly life, left a rich legacy of laughter and fun.
My little sister Leta makes me think of adventures.
When I go down the list of relatives and friends
in Perry each one invokes a distinct memory
from their interaction with me. Spring, summer,
fall and winter...words matter at every stage of
our lives. They color our memories that last a
lifetime.


After bringing home top three placements in the Mardi Gras Parade of Champions, members of

Southerland named representative


to House Republican leadership

Rep. Steve Southerland II was elected last week by
the members of the Republican class of 2010 to serve as S
sophomore class representative to the House Repiblican -
leadership.
Southerland said the appointment signifies that he "will
occupy an important seat at the leadership table, helping
shape the party's agenda and acting as a conduit between
leadership and the historic sophomore class."
He continued, "It is a great honor to serve as sophomore
class representative to the House Republican leadership.
There is no more humbling feeling than to have your c
friends and peers invest their trust in you to advance a
shared cause. I believe that people support that which they
help create, and for that reason I will continue to build upon ,
these relationships and seek my colleagues' counsel on the
issues the American people care about most. I also look
forward to working closely with the entire House
Republican leadership team to advance freedom, shrink
government, and empower hardworking families and job
creators."
Southerland is the first member of Congress elected
to the newly-created sophomore class representative
role.
He succeeds Reps. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Kristi Noem
(R-SD), who were appointed freshman class representatives.
for the now expired 112th Congress. Rep. Steve Southerland

With so many advertising
mediums dividing the attention of
potential customers, newspapers remain
the most effective source
for reaching consumers.

Why?
Simply put, newspapers reach more
people, more often. Highly portable
and highly visible, newspaper ads go
with people and stay with them.
That means your business is more likely to
be on their minds when they're in the market
for related products or services.
When it comes to spending
your advertising dollars, make the
choice that's tried and true: newspaper
advertising works harder for you.
