Warrants were served on 10 local residents who were arrested and charged with a variety of drug-related offenses, including cocaine and marijuana sales. Active warrants remain outstanding for Robert T. Williams, 31, and Clyde Miller, 26, both of whom are facing charges for the sale of cocaine. This is all part of an extensive drug investigation being conducted by the department as part of its continuing effort to enforce drug laws, Capt. Jamie Cruse said. Those arrested included: Garrett Holmes, 41, sale of cocaine; Derry Burns, 52, sale of cocaine; Jaworski Upshaw, 33, sale of cannabis; John Crocker Jr., 32, sale of cocaine; Devante Jermaine Glover, 29, sale of cocaine; Chris Reaves, 32, sale of cocaine/sale of controlled substance; Latoya Irvin, 32, sale of cocaine; Andrea Curtis, Merry Christmas lets ride Thankful hearts led to heartfelt actions this Thanksgiving holiday, with some 10 local churches and more than 60 volunteers working together to distribute 1,220 meals to local individuals and families in need. The fourth annual Thanksgiving Outreach saw meals being distributed at Loughridge Park and the Grand Pavilion at Rosehead Park. Volunteers also made door-to-door deliveries in several neighborhoods throughout the community. The support was just overwhelming and the people who received the meals were just so appreciative, said organizer Mary Browning. I think what impressed them more was seeing people from so many churches working together. The traditional Thanksgiving meals were accompanied by a brief biblical message of the gospel exhorting prayer and salvation. First Assembly of God Church launched the outreach in 2010 and has seen it continue to grow each year. We had so many volunteers this year that it took less than four hours to pack all 1200 meals. The church was cleaned up by noon and we were all out helping distribute, Browning said. She said the purpose of the outreach is two-fold. First, we want to raise awareness of the needs within our own community. I think many residents dont realize how bad the lives of some families areit is hard to believe that we actually have people in our own community who are going hungry. Second, it is a blessing to see so many different churches coming together.

Please see page 7 Hurricane season ends not with a bang, but a whimper The 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season ended Saturday, marking one of the least active seasons in the past 60 years, with the fewest number of hurricanes since 1982. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this season was the sixthleast-active Atlantic hurricane season since 1950, based on the collective strength and duration of named storms and hurricanes. During the season, which ran from June 1 to Nov. 30, 13 named storms formed in the Atlantic basin. Two, Ingrid and Humberto, became hurricanes, but neither became major hurricanes, making the 2013 season the rst to feature no major hurricanes since 1994. Although the number of named storms was above the average of 12, the numbers of hurricanes and major hurricanes were well below their averages of six and three, respectively. Major hurricanes are categories 3 and above. This was also much lower than pre-season predictions, which called for an above average year with 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (winds of 111 mph or higher). The rst named storm of the season, Tropical Storm Andrea, made landfall June 6 along the Dixie County coast about 10 miles south of Steinhatchee bringing with it rain and maximum sustained winds of 65 mph, but it spared Taylor County much of its punch. County emergency ofcials did not receive reports of damage aside from several downed trees and power lines. Florida Division of Forestry rain gauges in the county reported about three inches of rain from the storm, which was at the low end of the range forecasted by the National Weather Service. Andrea was the only named storm of the season to impact the United State mainland. Taylor County was threatened by Tropical Storm Karen in late September, but the system moved westward, nearing Louisiana before dissipating rst to a tropical depression and then a remnant low which ultimately brought some rain to Florida. A combination of conditions acted to offset several climate patterns that historically have produced active hurricane seasons, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. As a result, we did not see the large numbers of hurricanes that typically accompany these climate patterns. This unexpectedly low activity is linked to an unpredictable atmospheric pattern that prevented the growth of storms by producing exceptionally dry, sinking air and strong vertical wind shear in much of the main hurricane formation region, which spans the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, Bell said. Also detrimental to some tropical cyclones this year were several strong outbreaks of dry and stable air that originated over Africa. Complacency becomes the real threat with a slower than predicted season, said Bryan Koon, Florida Division of Emergency Management director. The last hurricane to make landfall in Florida was in Please see page 7

A-4 Taco Times December 4, 2013 Living Laniers celebrate 50years of marriageMr. and Mrs. Dewayne Lanier will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Sunday, Dec. 15. To mark the occasion, their family will honor the couple with a reception planned at the First Baptist Church from 2-4 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to join them in celebrating. The couple requests no gifts, please. Anne Morgan, center, is shown with granddaughter, Kylie Morgan, and the team who walked with her, including Lindsey Brantley, Elizabeth Morgan, Gena Parker, Melanie Mcafee, Kim Mcafee and Brenda Brannen Kuhn. Through the generosity of family and friends, we raised $5,000, making me the highest individual fundraiser, Morgan said. We also raised more money than any team or company. Morgan was top individual participant in fundraiser: Walk to End AlzheimersAnne Morgan of Perry was the top individual participant in the Walk to End Alzheimers held recently in Tallahassee. Morgan raised $5095 for the event, acknowledging the generosity of family and friends. Now that the totals are in, reports show that the walk generated $29,351. Roughly 60% is used for local programs and services, 30% is sent to the National Alzheimers Association to support research (which does occur at some local institutions), advocacy/public policy issues (such as the National Alzheimers Plan implementation) in Washington, DC, and the development of programs which are then implemented locally, said Margaret Farris. An additional 10% is used to fund national Alzheimers awareness campaigns, she added. The top company participating in the walk was the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Afliates (315) which raised $3,426.50; the top team also raised more than $3000. I was so proud to represent Taylor County and I was honored to carry a banner with the names of my loved ones, and your loved ones, who are battling or have battled Alzheimers. I do believe that Taylor Takes It Personally. Please know how grateful I am. Fifty years ago, the Laniers said I do. On Dec. 15, they will celebrate those vows again. ~ ~ School is back! Dont miss a day before Dec. 20th Its simple enough: one of the most important things you can do to help your child achieve academic success is to make sure he or she is in class, every day. Research has shown that your childs attendance record may be the biggest factor inuencing his/her academic success, said Michael Thompson, director of support services for the Taylor County School District. Teachers are frequently introducing new concepts and reinforcing learned knowledge in their lessons. When your children arent in school, they fall behind and their opportunity to be a better student is jeopardized, Thompson added. He urges parents to discuss the importance of school with their students, and to attempt to plan medical and other appointments after school so that classes and classwork get top priority.

Participating churches for the outreach included: First Assembly, Blue Creek Baptist, First Presbyterian, Cornerstone, First Baptist, First Episcopal, Northside Church of God, New Brooklyn MB Church, Potters House and Evangel Christian. The meal was supported entirely by donations. The only thing the church bought were totes to assist with transport and deliveries, Brown said. Contributing businesses were: Jacks Boats & Trailers, M.A. Rigoni, 221 Gas & Grill, Save-A-Lot, Goodmans BBQ, Winn Dixie, Susans T-Shirts and Barclays Restaurant. 2005. The last eight years have seen an inux of new residents, who may have experienced a tropical storm and believe that this event is the same in intensity as an actual hurricane. Memories also tend to fade with the passage of time between events, so even lifelong residents become complacent in their preparedness. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to remain prepared and vigilant. The Taylor County Commission is seeking a $60,000 supplemental grant to fund an additional deployment to the Buckeye articial reef off the countys coast. At the Nov. 19 meeting, the commission unanimously agreed to submit a grant to the Florida Articial Reef Program within the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Division of Marine Fisheries Management. Earlier in November, the program announced an additional $500,000 in state saltwater shing license revenues for articial reef related activities. These additional funds were made available through a special appropriation during the 2013 Florida legislative session to increase funding for articial reef construction, but counties only had a few weeks between the announcement and the grant deadline. In addition to the application, commissioners agreed to fund a $3,000 local match toward the project. In August, some 120 concrete cubes were placed on the Buckeye Reef site funded through a $60,000 grant, which also featured a $3,000 local match. Taylor County Marine & Natural Resources Extension Agent Geoff Wallat recommended the commission approve the application and County Administrator Jack Brown added his support as well. Commissioner Jim Moody made a motion to move forward with the application and Commissioner Jody DeVane seconded. In addition to the grantfunded deployment in August, a second project was completed in September thanks to donations from state and local agencies, along with the cooperation of volunteers and several residents. According to Wallat, the Florida Department of Transportation donated 75 tons of concrete culvert pipes to the reef team for deployment at the Buckeye Reef off the countys coast. To help cover the cost of the deployment itself, which was undertaken by D&L Contracting, the team received a $5,000 grant from the Tourism Development Council and $2,500 from the Gainesville Offshore Fishing Club, with the team itself covering the remainder of the expenses. The Buckeye Reef is located 17.6 miles from Keaton Beach on a bearing of 235 degrees from the Keaton Beach channel marker. The reef site is one square mile encompassing 640 acres. County seeks funding to expand reef Taylor Countys unemployment rate dropped slightly in October to 7.2 percent, continuing a downward trend which began in August. The countys unemployment rate was 7.9 percent in July, falling to 7.6 percent in August and 7.3 percent in September. Octobers rate is the lowest recorded this year. For the month, Taylor had the 22nd highest unemployment rate among Floridas 67 counties, with 683 people unemployed and 8,865 employed, according to recent gures released by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). Among Taylors neighbors, Madison County had the highest unemployment rate at 8.3 percent, followed by Dixie County at 8.1 percent. Below Taylor were Lafayette at 6.0 percent and Jefferson County at 5.4 percent. Like Taylor, all four counties saw drops in their unemployment rates in October. Hendry County had the highest rate in the state at 12 percent, while Monroe County once again boasted the lowest with 3.8 percent. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.7 percent in October, down 0.1 percentage point over the month, and down 1.5 percentage points from 8.2 percent a year ago. The states October rate was the lowest since August 2008 when it also was 6.7 percent. There were 625,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9,396,000. The U.S. unemployment rate was 7.3 percent in October. Floridas unemployment rate was 0.6 percentage point lower than the U.S. rate and was below the national rate for the eighth consecutive month. Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,618,900 in October, an increase of 44,600 jobs (+0.6 percent) over the month. Compared to October a year ago, the number of jobs in the state was up by 182,200, an increase of 2.5 percent. Floridas annual job growth rate in October 2013 was the fastest since June 2006. Nationally, the number of jobs was up 1.7 percent over the year. Floridas annual job growth rate has exceeded or been equal to the nations rate since March 2012.
