The call signaled he was home (back in service).Coming home Im coming home. When Taylor County Sheriffs Deputy Robert Lundy said those three simple words Friday morning, it sparked a urry of actions from the front door of the rehab center in Gainesville to the driveway of his front yard in Steinhatchee. Hundreds of law enforcement ofcials, family, friends and community supporters lined the route to welcome this hometown hero. There was even a helicopter escorting the caravan. It was a very overwhelming and humbling momentto see and realize the many people God has put in my life. It was very emotionala happy emotional journey, Lundy said. Lundys escort from Gainesville included representatives from Perry and Taylor County law enforcement departments as well as units from Dixie and Alachua counties. Academy students in Gainesville, high school students in Cross City and elementary students in Steinhatchee all came out to cheer Lundy and his family. It was just heartwarming and indescribable to see the children at the schools come out and when we turned on the bridge (in Steinhatchee) and saw all the people, it is all something well never forget. Nearly a hundred people crowded into Lundys driveway as the welcome celebration slipped into the afternoon. Handshakes and hugs Victims targeted, 1 was shot in the face One of the victims of last weeks bloody home invasion has been released from the hospital while the second victim remains in serious condition at an area facility, recovering from multiple woundsincluding a gunshot to the face. The two suspects charged with attempted rst degree murder in the case, Jordan White, 19, and Aaron Price, 26, remain in custody. The case is ongoing and investigators are still working Please see page 12 Please see page 3Taylor County Administrator Jack Brown will soon leave his position here to take a new job as the Escambia County administrator. The Taylor County Commission held a special meeting Monday afternoon during which Brown gave his formal notice to the board, which subsequently voted to offer Assistant County Administrator Dustin Hinkel a one-year contract to ll Browns role (see related story). On Thursday, April 10, the Escambia County Commission voted unanimously to select Brown as their new administrator--ending a 19-month search--offering him a one-year contract. When asked Tuesday, Brown said he rst applied for the job in October, adding that he spoke with commissioners here individually prior to doing so. Brown resigns as county administratorPlease see page 12 Hinkel hired to replace BrownThe Taylor County Commissions search for a new county administrator to replace Jack Brown lasted about 15 minutes, with the board voting 4-1 to offer Assistant County Administrator Dustin Hinkel a one-year contract to ll the soon-to-be vacant position. The commission made the decision at a special meeting held Monday, during which Brown gave Please see page 2Dustin Hinkel Rare war bird Tag fees going downWith Florida Gov. Rick Scott signing Senate Bill 156, which rolled back many of the 2009 tax increases on motor vehicle registration renewals, Taylor County Tax Collector Mark Wiggins is recommending residents not purchase a two-year tag renewal until after the new law goes into effect in September. Last winter, we announced our intent to return $500 million to Floridians by cutting taxes, Scott said after signing the bill. Today, we are rolling back many of the 2009 tax increases on annual motor vehicle registrations. This will result in an annual Please see page 12 A suspect who is believed to have robbed two Live Oak banks--and is possibly linked to a bank robbery here at Citizens State Bank--was captured and taken into custody in Tallahassee Monday, according to Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Williams. Kenneth Lamar Ellington, 45, of Quincy, allegedly entered both banks wearing a knitted hat, dark jacket, boots, a fake beard, mustache and wig, and robbed TD Bank and the First Federal Bank South Branch by passing a note to a teller. Reports indicate this scenario was similar to Perrys bank robbery. The Perry Police Department is coordinating its investigation with the Live Oak police.Suspected bank robber caught A World War II-era TBM-3E Avenger bomber made an unscheduled pitstop at the Perry-Foley Airport this past weekend.

A-2 Taco Times April 16, 2014 his formal notice that he was leaving his position here to become Escambia Countys (Pensacola) new administrator. Hinkel has been assistant county administrator since September 2011. Prior to that, he was Taylor County Emergency Management director, a position he still holds. Hinkel started with the county in December 2009 as emergency management coordinator. He is a graduate of the University of South Florida, where he received a bachelors degree in environmental policy and a masters degree in geography. Hinkel and his wife currently reside in Leon County, but they will be moving to Taylor County to meet the residency requirement for the county administrator position. At Mondays meeting, Commission Chairman Malcolm Page asked County Attorney Conrad Bishop if the board could hire a new administrator without advertising the position. He was told they could. The board then discussed the possibilities of hiring Hinkel on an interim basis for six months or offering him the position outright on a one-year contract. (Brown was offered a oneyear contract with Escambia County.) During discussions, County Commissioner Pam Feagle suggested hiring Hinkel on an interim basis and not lling the assistant administrator position. I feel if we hire him without an assistant, were setting him up to fail, Page said. He then asked Hinkel if he would accept a one-year contract, and Hinkel said he would. Commissioner Jim Moody said he was not in favor of offering a oneyear contract without rst advertising the position. Feagle added that she had spoken with several members of the public and felt a search was in order. Commissioner Jody DeVane said he was worried about the scenario in which the county lost Brown and Hinkel and had to bring someone in who didnt know about ongoing projects and activities. I have full condence in Dustin, Commissioner Pat Patterson said. He is an educated man and a man of integrity. She then made a motion to offer Hinkel a one-year contract to be negotiated with Bishop and Page. DeVane offered a second. During discussion of the motion, Feagle said that she had nothing against Hinkel and told him that if he was hired by the board, she would support you in every way I can and help you in every way I can. Moody then asked Hinkel if he would move to Taylor County if offered the contract, and Hinkel said he would. Patterson called for an end of discussions, and the vote was 4-1, with Feagle voting against. I just want to thank the board for your support in allowing me this opportunity to serve in this capacity, Hinkel said following the vote. I know making that decision wasnt easy, but I hope that in the course of the year you have given me, I will make your minds more condent in my abilities to lead this organization.

A-12 Taco Times April 16, 2014 savings of $25 per typical motor vehicle. Since the bill does not go into effect until Sept. 1, Wiggins is suggesting residents not take the option to renew their registration for two years prior to that date since they would be paying the higher price for both years. I want to give Taylor County residents the opportunity to take advantage of the savings (the bill) offers, Wiggins said. I would be disheartened if someone missed out on the opportunity to save money because they were not informed of the legislation and its savings. Residents will still have the option to renew their registrations for two years, Wiggins said. There is no cost advantage with twoyear registration renewals; they are offered as a matter of convenience, he added. to recover evidence that was discarded by the suspect, Perry Police Department Capt. Jamie Cruse said. This was not a random act. These (the victims) were targeted individuals. Few details relating to the investigation have been released; however, Cruse conrmed that the victims were transported to the hospital by a private vehicle. We were rst notied when they arrived at the emergency room with gunshot wounds. The rst arrest in the case came less than four hours after the 10 p.m. break-in. The second suspect (Price) was in custody just six hours later, around 7:30 a.m. Thursday. The home invasion occurred at a residence on Glenn Street. During the robbery, a male and a female victim (whose identities have not been released) were shot; the suspect(s) apparently searched the home and stabbed the victims with a knife before eeing the scene. A six-year-old child who was also present at the home during the forcible break-in and attack was not injured. I would never apply for a job without letting my boss know I was applying, Brown said. I think its a beautiful area, he said of Escambia County. I think any individual wants to take on bigger challenges. I think its a great opportunity. Escambia County, which includes the city of Pensacola, is home to 297,000 residents. Its been great, he said of his time working for Taylor County. Ive enjoyed working with the different boards. Brown previously served as county manager from March 1997 to September 2001. He was elected to the Taylor County Commission in 2002, representing District IV. In early 2006, he announced he would not seek re-election and later applied for the county administrator position after then Administrator Buddy Humphries announced his retirement. The commission hired Brown out of a narrowed list of ve applicants in October 2006. Its been great to represent Taylor County as county administrator, to be a member of this community and to be able to serve the public and serve you individually, Brown said at Mondays commission meeting. Its with mixed feelings Im leaving you. I was born and raised in Taylor County. I love this community. Brown then requested the commission consider allowing him to leave in 30 days rather than the 90 days as stated in his contract with the county, noting that he had 620 hours of accrued vacation time. He added that he felt Hinkel was prepared to take care of the countys business in his absence. When Commissioner Chairman Malcolm Page asked for opinions from the board, Commissioner Pam Feagle spoke rst, saying she would like the board to at least address the idea of holding Brown to the 90 days to give the commission additional time to search for a replacement. The rest of the board, however, stated they were comfortable with allowing Brown to leave after 30 days, with Commissioner Pat Patterson making a motion to that effect. Commissioner Jody DeVane seconded and the measure passed 4-1, with Feagle voting against. Taylor County has been great to me and my family, Brown said Tuesday. Ill miss a lot of people here. I have good friends here. I will miss our staff. We have a lot of good people who work hard behind the scenes where the public doesnt always see them. The county has a good commission who debate the issues, but at the end of the vote, work together.
