FSU announces weather balloon launchFlorida State Universitys (FSU) meteorology department is asking local residents to be on the lookout for small payloads of scientic instruments that have been launched as part of a weather study program. Before each ight, we run a model to predict the ight track of the weather balloon. After ascending to 80,000 to 100,000 feet, the balloons burst and a parachute deploys. The instruments land softly with nal descent speeds of about 10-15 miles per hour. We receive our data in real time via a transmitter on board the payload, FSU ofcials said. Anyone who nds one of the weather research instruments is asked to return the bundle to the address found on the outside of the package. The department is offering a $30 reward for each returned instrument box.Senior Center to hold book sale this FridayThe Taylor County Senior Citizens Center will hold a book sale Friday, Aug. 30, starting at 8 a.m. Readers are invited to come shop for used books at great prices.

Two local members of the U.S. Marshalls Task Force took Victor Charles Amundrud, 68, into custody at his residence on James D. Smith Road without incident. He is currently being held on a no bond order at the Taylor County Jail. Authorities in Beloit have requested Amundrud be extradited to their county to face the charges. According to the arrest afdavit, the victim in the case reported the crime in late 2012, alleging repeated abuse by the suspect that spanned more than a decade (starting when the victim was under the age of 16).

Wiggins to head United Way campaign After once again meeting its fund-raising goal last year, the Taylor County United Way Campaign is preparing to begin its 201314 fund-raising season, and leading the charge is Chairman Mark Wiggins. When I worked on the United Way investment team a few years ago, I saw the huge need in this community, said Wiggins, who was elected Taylor County tax collector in 2012. What I like about United Way is that the money raised here, stays here. Every bit we raise stays in our community. The campaign will ofcially kick off its efforts at the annual breakfast celebration on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at the Taylor County Senior Center on Ash Street from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Breakfast will cost $5 and includes sausage, eggs, grits, biscuits, coffee and juice. Proceeds from the event will be donated to one of United Ways participating agencies through a drawing held following breakfast. Wiggins will also announce the campaigns new fund-raising goal at the breakfast. I understand the economic times were in, but I hope people can understand that even a dollar can make a huge difference to someone else, he said. When the economy is not good, the needs only increase. Taylor County United Way supports more than 20 local organizations, including 2-1-1 Big Bend, Ability 1st, Alzheimers Project, American Red FDOT to resurface, widen Johnson Stripling RoadCiting hazardous conditions and a history of fatality crashes, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has agreed to resurface and widen Johnson Stripling Road at no cost to Taylor County. Last week, the Taylor County Commission unanimously approved a construction and maintenance agreement with FDOT, under which the state agency will assume ownership of the roadway during the construction project and then turn it back over to the county upon the works completion. The work will be conducted through FDOTs High Risk Rural Road Program, which provides money for safety improvements to roadways that have a history of trafc accidents. According to county ofcials, the work will run from Pace Drive to Roberts Aman Road and is expected to get underway some time next year. On Aug. 6, the Board of County Commissioners received a Construction & Maintenance Agreement from the Florida Department of Transportation to fund, design, manage, maintain and repair Johnson Stripling Road at no expense to Taylor County, County Engineer Kenneth Dudley said in a memorandum to commissioners. Under the terms of this agreement, FDOT will mill, resurface and widen the roadway to 12-foot lanes, correct cross slope at each of the horizontal curves, install signs and pavement markings, upgrade existing guardrail, install minor drainage improvements and install two-foot paved shoulders. Once the project is complete, Taylor County will once again be responsible to operate and maintain the upgraded roadway. This is the second roadway in the county to be funded through the High Risk Rural Road Program, which assisted with the widening and resurfacing of Puckett Road in 2010. Please see page 3County receives $2.5 million in paving fundsVictor Amundrud Taylor County has received $2.5 million in additional state funds to help complete three road resurfacing projects. The county commission approved three supplemental agreements last week with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) providing extra funding through the state agencys Small County Road Assistance Program (SCRAP) and the Small County Outreach Program (SCOP) for East Red Padgett Road, South Red Padgett Road and Osteen Road. On the Red Padgett Road project, the county originally received $518,043 for East Red Padgett Road (CR 356A) and $918,000 for the South Red Padgett Road (CR 356). The county combined the two projects together when putting it out for bids in July. County Engineer Kenneth Dudley warned at the time, however, that staff expects that there will be a good chance that the monies remaining from this original reimbursement agreement amount after allotting for the survey, geotechnical and construction administration expenses will be insufcient to complete the entire project as proposed without additional funding from FDOT or the board. Under the supplemental agreements, FDOT has allocated an additional $997,182 for East Red Padgett Road and $1,053,035 for South Red Padgett Road. At the commissions meeting Tuesday, the board received four bids for the project, with Please see page 3 Please see page 7 Buckeye merger done deal Georgia-Pacic LLC and Buckeye Technologies Inc. completed the previously announced acquisition of Buckeye by Georgia-Pacic on Friday.

A-6 Taco Times August 28, 2013 Religion Archery, crossbow competition held here, with emphasis on the cross CrossHeir Outtters, an outdoor ministry based in Branford, teamed up with Crosspoint Baptist Fellowship and Big Bend Outtters to host a 3D archery and Crossbow tournament on Saturday, Aug. 17. Hunters and archery enthusiasts showed up despite the rain that threatened the early morning competition and enjoyed a real life hunting encounter with animals ranging from porcupines to even a lake carp. There were a total of 16 targets ranging from 12 to 40 yards. Top archer of the day was Brian Bareld, who not only tallied the highest score in the tournament but was also the winner in a one-shot challenge at 40 yards. He won a bow from Mathews Drenalin valued at more than $800 and a dual head hunting video camera to mount on his bow. Second place went to Darrell Austin and the third prize winner was Jake Fisher. This years event also included a crossbow competition where three hunters showed up with their weapons and shot 8 of the 16 targets. The winner of the tournament was Erica Grambling, who borrowed a friends crossbow to be able to participate, and walked away with a brand new crossbow of her own. Second prize in the crossbow competition went to Richard Blake and third place was awarded to Debbie Shepard. Events like these are a common occurrence for Crosspoint Fellowship as well as CrossHeir Outtters as the two ministries have teamed up in Perry the past six years to provide annual opportunities for sportsmen. We love coming to Perry each year, said Robert Bradow, founder and speaker for CrossHeir. These are our kind of people. The purpose of the event was to give archers an opportunity to showcase their shooting abilities, but Bradow is in it for more than the shooting. Its my platform to share the love of Jesus Christ with other hunters and their families. Bradow and his ministry will be hosting their next 3D tournament in nearby Day on Hwy. 53 at Brewer Lake Baptist Church on Sept. 7, at 8 a.m. Everyone is invited for good fun, food and fellowship. Another $800 bow will be given away at the event. For more information, you may contact Bradow at (386) 208-9207.
