The child, whose identity was not released by the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. FHP Trooper James Parker Jr. reported the child was riding in the truckbed of the 1990 Dodge Ram when, for unknown reasons, he/she fell out of the vehicle onto County Road 361 (Beach Road). Although there have been conicting reports that the driver was killed during the crash, FHP Lt. David Folsom stated there were not fatal injuries. Taylor County Ready to make a splash A number of stakeholders in the new Rosehead Park gathered at the nearly completed splash pad Friday to review its progress. Shown left to right are: Mark Viola, Rotary Club president; Cheryl Moore and Martine Young, Florida Department of Health in Taylor County; City Manager Bob Brown; and Ray Curtis, Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) representative. The City of Perry is spearheading the project and has received grants from SRWMD; Rotary donated funds toward the splash pad construction; and the health department is contributing benches. Additional stakeholders will be spotlighted in coming weeks. Plans to challenge predator statu sTinsley responds to sign placementResponding to the City of Perrys placement of a sign in front of his residence proclaiming his conviction as a sexual predator, Charles Tinsley told the Taco Times Tuesday he was preparing to go before a judge and ask that the predator designation be thrown out. It is the will of God and it will be overturned, Tinsley said. As for the sign placed on the right-of-way in front of the home where he resides on Judson Drive in Quail Pointe, he said, You dont have to label a man. Down in (Pinellas), they pass out iers to let people in a neighborhood know about things like this. Why cant they do that here? Tinsley, who previously lived in Clearwater, said, I didnt know I was on the predators list until an ofcer there (Clearwater) showed me. At that time, I was living at a residence that was just down from a day care center. Then an ofcer came and said I couldnt live there because I was now on this list. I didnt know anything about itsomebody who knows computers just went in and added me to the list. It isnt right. He also said his 2009 conviction for sexual battery in Pinellas County, was really just a dispute between me and my girlfriend at the time. She was 44, but Charles Tinsley said he wants residents to know he has served his time in prison. Please see page 3 VA clinic returning to Taylor? Please see page 12The county is continuing to work with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to bring a VA clinic back to the community. According to County Administrator Jack Brown, he and Special Projects Manager David Parker met with VA ofcials during a site survey on May 15 at a county-owned building across the street from the Health Department in Taylor County. Brown said the purpose of the meeting was to review the modications needed to make the building suitable for the VA, which would lease it from the county. The county has been working to re-establish a VA clinic here since the one at the health department closed in July 2011. The plan is that the county fund the remodeling project upfront with all costs being reimbursed by the VA, Brown said. The project is fully funded by the VA; funds are on hand and a purchase order to the county will be issued as soon as we determine the overall cost. At the commissions May 21 meeting, Brown requested an initial $35,000 budget for the project. The $35,000 is just an initial request to allow us to start the project, he said. Once we have a detailed cost estimate, we will request the additional funding that will be required. The rst thing we need to do is contract for an asbestos survey. Mr. Parker will serve as construction manager and will hire local temporary employees to work for the county, Brown said. The commission unanimously approved the request for the funding. County ofcials are pursuing a major $442,000 renovation project for Forest Capital Hall and seeking a $215,000 state grant to help fund the improvements. In April, the Taylor County Commission held two public hearings to discuss the Department of State Cultural Facilities Grant Programs 2014-15 funding cycle and agreed at that time to seek funds for the Capital Hall project. According to County Grants Coordinator Melody Cox, the grant will require a $215,500 local match. The county plans to use bed tax funds to cover the match, which will not be required until after July 1, 2014, should the county be awarded the grant. At its meeting Monday, the commission unanimously approved the project budget and agreed County pursues $442,00 in upgrades for Forest Capital HallA group of rst-year students at the Florida State University College of Medicine were in Perry Friday, touring Doctors Memorial Hospital (DMH) as well as the community to explore rural health care. The event was part of the College of Medicine Rural Education Opportunity Program (REOP), which is sponsored by the Florida Blue Foundation. The idea is to increase students familiarity with rural health--and the possibility that they will practice rural medicine--by exposing them early to rural communities and health providers, organizers said. The students toured DMH and listened to a presentation from CEO Geri Forbes which included a brief history of the hospital and questions about Taylor Countys healthcare needs. The students then went to the DMH Medical Plaza, where they had a meet and greet with physicians and were treated to lunch. The group also toured downtown Perry and the new Rosehead Park with MainStreet Perry Manager Tracy Smith, who spoke about the ongoing downtown revitalization Please see page 3Florida State students land in Perry during rst week of medical schoolPlease see page 5

A-3 Taco Times June 5, 2013 they used that other case (a 1986 conviction for lewd/ lascivious assault on a child under 16) to convict me. When a jury hears about a 12-year-oldwhat are they gonna do? Weve all made mistakes in our past, but it shouldnt follow us for the rest of our life. But with some people it doesnt matter whether or not youre trying to do right. Of the confusion regarding his listed address, Tinsley said, The U.S. government says the house on Campbell Street is my residence. Its on my drivers license. But Im getting ready to move out-of-state, so its going to change anyway. Tinsley said he hasnt received any backlash from the sign being placed in front of his current address. The neighborhood is ne. The City of Perry recently decided to place signs on the right-of-ways in front of homes of registered sexual predators who live within the city limits. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Tinsley is the only registered sexual predator who falls under those guidelines. The other eight registered predators in Taylor County live outside the city. The county has a total of 61 registered sexual offenders and predators. At last weeks city council meeting, City Manager Bob Brown said it came to light that Tinsley was not living at the address registered with law enforcement ofcials. The homeowner of the Campbell Street address gave a sworn statement that Tinsley only used the home as a mail drop, Brown said. Ofcers later determined that Tinsley now lives at the Judson Drive address and the sexual predator notice was placed there last Wednesday. to submit the application for consideration. The planned improvements and proposed budget include: the installation of a sprinkler system ($65,000); installation of auditorium ooring ($65,000); general design, engineering and permitting ($19,000); rehabilitation of restrooms ($126,000); sewer service installations, including survey work ($83,100); and stage improvements, including stage expansion, lighting and electrical upgrades, audio upgrades, replacing stage curtains and installing a handicapaccessibility lift ($84,172). The county is able to credit previous work done at the facility toward its local match and is counting $11,172 spent by the PerryTaylor County Chamber of Commerce to replace the stage curtains. Cox warned commissioners that the grant in question was very competitive, but added that she felt they were submitting a good application. The county will not know if the project is funded until after the legislature and governor approve the Fiscal Year 2014-15 budget in May 2014, she said. Cox recommended the board consider applying in the next Community Development Block Grant funding cycle for a neighborhood revitalization grant to help fund the restroom rehabilitation and sewer installation. Should the county ultimately receive both grants, the county could eliminate those portions from the cultural facilities grant and move forward with the rest of the project, she said.

The accident happened around 7:30 p.m. and remains under investigation with charges pending. The driver was not injured and was listed as unknown. A similar incident happened just one day later in Madison County involving a 35-year-old Greenville woman. Wavelene McElveen was critically injured after apparently leaping from the back, landing on the north shoulder of U.S. 90 (S.R.) 10. She was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and the incident is still under investigation. James McElveen, 41, also of Greenville, was driving the 1995 Chevrolet 1500 truck and was not injured. FHP Trooper J.D. Smith reported Wavelene McElveen was riding in the bed of the truck and, for unknown reasons, exited the pick up, landing on the shoulder of the road. TRUCK Continued from page 1 Greenville woman injured Monday in similar accident The Taylor County Commission is seeking bids for Phase III of the Taylor County Sports Complex, which will include the construction of a softball eld, a baseball eld and the associated facilities, including dugouts and sidewalks. According to County Engineer Kenneth Dudley, work is already underway at the site on the concession stand, which is being constructed in-house by the county utilizing Florida Department of Corrections work crews. Lighting and irrigation will be installed using existing contracts, he added. Last fall, the commission earmarked $600,000 toward the complex expansion in response to requests from softball representatives, who expressed dissatisfaction with the existing local softball facilities. The new elds will be adjacent to the existing quad of baseball diamonds. The commission will open the bids during its regular meeting June 18. County seeks bids for new softball, baseball elds at Sport Complex Smith recognized Taylor County High School senior Trevor Smith was recognized by the Florida Forest Service for his outstanding contributions as a forestry 16.
