Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) conrmed here: Local woman, horse infected A Taylor County woman is ghting for her life after contracting Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) through a mosquito bite, according to family members. While Florida Department of Health ofcials have conrmed one case of a Taylor County horse infected with the potentially deadly virus, they said their department does not yet have any conrmed human cases of EEE in Taylor County as of 5 p.m. Tuesday. It took doctors at Shands Hospital in Gainesville eight days to diagnose Debbie Clark Casey with EEE, her brother, Bish Clark, said Tuesday. She was barely coherent when she got there and has been in a medically-induced coma ever since, Clark said. It started last week with Debbie saying she felt uish. She had a fainting spell, and we were going to get her to the doctor the next morning. But then they (family members) couldnt get a hold of her, and she didnt respond when they went to her house. So they broke in and found her. They called 911, and when EMTs got there, they realized she needed to be transferred to a hospital immediately, so they called for LifeFlight. They landed the helicopter down there at the beach (Casey has a home at Cedar Island) and ew her down to Gainesville. They are the rst heroes in a long line, Clark said. Her house is 20 feet in the air, and they had to get her down to the ground and loaded into the helicopter. At rst, we thought she may have had a stroke, but once she was at the hospital, they realized that wasnt it. They treated her for everything and tried to keep her stable. Once the diagnosis came in, they knew what they were Please see page 2 Trafcking amounts of powder cocaine and more than 300 grams of cannabis were seized Friday morning, June 8, after ofcers executed a search warrant at 104 Magnolia Street. Investigators made one arrest -Jaquan Williams, 27, who lives at the address -and he was booked at the Taylor County Jail More than 300 grams of cannabis and six ounces of cocaine, along with pots apparently used to cook crack cocaine, were seized Friday.Please see page 2 With 3 young children inside Home reeked of marijuana Jaquan Williams New public works building bid comes in $95,000 over budget County commissioners have agreed to dip into budget reserves for more than $95,000 after the lone bid received to construct a new ofce building at the Taylor County Public Works Department came in nearly twice the $100,000 budgeted for the project. At the countys June 4 meeting, commissioners voted 5-0 in favor of Commissioner Malcolm Pages motion to transfer $95,376 out of reserves for capital improvements to go with $100,000 in budgeted funds to cover the cost of a $195,376 bid to construct a metal building, concrete slab, ooring, lights, HVAC, suspending ceiling, xtures, cabinets and interior walls in a new County Public Works Department ofce building. Phifer Industries out of Jacksonville submitted the only bid for the 2,000 square foot metal building. According to County Administrator Ted Lakey, the old ofces have mold issues, and the new building would allow the county to expand the shop area, construct new ofces and a new break room. I would like to see it go back out for bid, Commissioner Jim Moody said. That price seems high Please see page 2Boaters should have a little more room to navigate during the busy scallop season opening weekend, thanks to the cooperation of the contractor replacing the Hodges Park Pier at Keaton Beach. In response to a request from county commissioners and county staff, D&L Contracting has agreed to when possible relocate the barge to the east side of the canal (away from the pier in the middle of the canal) after completing work each Friday and then shift it back to the work area adjacent to the pier when they return each Monday. According to County Engineer Kenneth Dudley, the D&L Contracting has agreed to relocate the barge whenever possible to alleviate any inconvenience for boaters temporarily limited not having the full Hodges Park Pier project at Keaton Beach: Barge will move during busy weekends Please see page 3 Contractors temporarily relocated a barge (seen in photo far right) to allow weekend boaters easier Gulf access. ( The Taylor County School Board approved the establishment of an assistant principal position for Taylor County Pre-K during their June 5 meeting, a move that coincides with Superintendent Danny Glover Jr.s hope to combine the Taylor County Elementary School (TCES), Perry Primary School (PPS) and Taylor County Pre-K under one principals supervision. Glover requested the position be established, after Pre-K teacher Cheryl Brantley announced she is stepping down as acting Pre-K principal this year. Glover told school board members his tentative plan is to combine TCES, PPS and Pre-K under one principal, Sabrina Lytle, who will oversee three assistant principals responsible for day-to-day administration. Ive been talking with Mrs. Lytle about the future, Glover said during the meeting. Now dont hold 1 principal to oversee 3 schools? Please see page 7Rhoda Ann Moehring has dropped out of the race for the Taylor County Commission District 3 seat, becoming the fth overall candidate to withdraw their candidacy during the 2018 election cycle. With Moehrings departure, there are ve remaining candidates seeking to ll the remaining two years of the late Commissioner Frank Russells term. The longtime county commissioner died in February. Florida Gov. Rick Scott subsequently appointed Steve Spradley to ll the seat through the November election. Moehrings withdrawal also means that, unless someone else enters the race, none of the current candidates will appear on the Aug. 28 primary ballot since there is one Republican (R), one Democrat (D) and three no-party-afliation (NPA) candidates. Those running for the District 3 seat include: Moehring withdraws from racePlease see page 2

A-5 Taco Times June 13, 2018 Living Editors Note: Although Flora Woodfaulk has been retired for many years, the former educator still has the grace and authority that made her a favorite teacher to generations of students. Her legacy of learning lives on through the volunteer work she continues today. Her overall contributions to the community were spotlighted in a special segment entitled Once a Teacher, Always a Teacher that aired on local television station WTXL as part of its ongoing Difference Maker series. The following are excerpts from the story, which is available online for viewing: Sitting down with Flora Woodfaulk, right away you notice her impeccable style and the moxie to go with it. Most people know I wont bake a cake for them, but Ill do something else for them, said Woodfaulk. Shes offered to bake cakes for a lot of people over the years, but she has more important things on her plate. To make it a better tomorrow for all of us, Woodfaulk said. Flora Woodfaulk is now in her 80s. She credits more than four decades of teaching students in the Taylor County School District for keeping her young at heart. She began educating third graders when she was only 19 years old. They keep me young, you know, she laughed. For 42 years, Woodfaulk walked down many school hallways and taught in many classrooms within the Taylor County School District. Twenty years into her retirement, Woodfaulk serves on numerous committees. Shes even launched her latest endeavor, The Dreamers and Doers Program. I was inspired by looking at the drop-out rate. Not only in our local community, but its a national problem, said Woodfaulk. The program offers incentives like trips for Taylor County High School and middle school students who demonstrate academic excellence, including good school attendance and grades. I want them to use their God-given talents, and if I can motivate them in any way to go beyond the mundane things and go on to new heights, then thats my joy, said Woodfaulk Always in the background, and not much for the spotlight, Woodfaulk simply nds joy in helping young minds. A number of people showed up to Taylor County High School to sing her praises with WTXL cameras rolling. You could call them The Flora Committee. Makes me want to do more. If I can help someone along the way, then I really want to continue that, Woodfaulk said. Even in retirement, Woodfaulk is still teaching... and still inspiring the next generation. The FloraCommittee Flora Woodfaulk Difference MakerLongtime friends, colleagues, former students and fellow volunteers gathered at Taylor County High School to share their stories about the impact Flora Woodfaulk has had on their lives. The Reading rewards followed by trip to the Taylor County Public Library. Plans were made to play at the City Park as well, but the weather interfered. However, a great the school year.

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. --James 1:2-4 One of the most fearful requests to bring to God in prayer is for patience. We know that patience is not something that is just given, but instead it is something that is learned. Ask God for patience and youll nd out what I mean. You will be sent through a gauntlet of temptations. The Bible calls this divers (also translated diverse or various) temptations, which simply means temptations of all kinds. Not temptations to sin, of course, but temptations to become frustrated or anxious -maybe even cast down and discouraged. Why is it so hard for us to be patient? Well, the Bible alludes to the answer in verse 3 when it tells us that the trying of our faith worketh patience. What does faith have to do with patience? When we lose our patience, think of the main reason why. It is because we are totally out of control of the situation. From the moment we come screaming into this world we have a nature within us that demands control. We want control over every moment of our lives such that we can make life just as we would have it to be. Sweet innocent little babies are not exempt from this nature. They want what they want, and if they dont get it at that very moment they scream until they get it. That is because all mankind is born into this world with the same nature within each of us. SIN. A simple denition of sin is anything outside of the will of God, which brings us back to faith. What is the will of God? The will of God is for each one of us to fully trust Him. To have faith in Him. Trust that He will meet our needs. Trust that He will protect and keep us. Trust that no matter what the circumstance may seem to be today, as long as we are fully surrendered to His will, we can rest knowing He has us safe in the hollow of His hands and everything is going to be okay. This means doing things the way the Bible tells us to. Obeying His will even when it doesnt make sense to us at the moment. Even if it seems that by our obedience we will create hardships for ourselves. Gods Word is the only way we can truly know the will of God. However, most of us have a tendency to combine some of the Word together with our own desires and hope the outcome will be positive. We do this because to strictly obey the Word of God means that many times we will have to step out on a limb. It means we will have to trust what God says. This is what I am to do, and He promises if I do this, the end result will be good, even if it sure doesnt look like it right now. You may have obeyed Gods Word for years and are still waiting to see the promise. So, like Abraham and Sarah you help God a bit with his promise and make a mess of things. This is the part that verse 4 tells us how to handle: Let patience have her perfect work. The wait is what builds trust. It is what builds faith. If we could just learn that we dont have to be in control when we are His children, what a wonderful life we could live. We could live life without fear, anxiety and without frustration. I know its a fearful thing to seek God for patience, but imagine the promise given in verse 4 coming to pass in your life and mine. That ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. What that means is your hopes and comfort will no longer rest in how much you have in your bank account, or what may happen in Washington tomorrow or anything you feel like you have to control. Your hope will rest in the one who spoke life into being. The one who has the very hairs of your head numbered and catches every tear you shed, because He loves you so very much. He waits for each one of us to nally lay down our own willful desire to be in control and simply patiently wait on Him to see that we are cared for. If we could just learn that, we would absolutely want for nothing.

Every year, the American Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters the vast majority of which smoke alarms cut the risk half, and having an escape plan further improves the odds of survival. These statistics are why the American Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014, a program which deaths and injuries by 25 education and free smoke alarm installations. Volunteers are needed for a number of projects within the Home Fire Campaign, including The Pillowcase Project. The Red Cross offers free 40or 60-minute disaster preparedness presentations for students in the community. The Pillowcase Project teaches students in grades 3-5 how they and their households can best prevent, prepare for and escape from a home hazards like earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes, and how they and their households can prepare for and stay safe when a natural hazard becomes an emergency. You can also volunteer for a Sound the Alarm event in your community, where Red Cross volunteers, and other partners, serve high-risk neighborhoods by installing free smoke alarms and replacing batteries in existing alarms, educating families on home hazard preparation, helping escape plans. The Red Cross is also offering the opportunity to become part of their Disaster Action Team (DAT). DAT members respond immediately to a disaster when called by emergency dispatch. Specially trained DAT volunteers assess the scope of the damage and meet with the affected family or families to determine their immediate disaster-related needs and ensure that those needs are met. For more information on the many ways you can volunteer with the American Red Cross, visit redcross.org/ volunteer, or contact Kathy Bland at (850) 878-6080 or kathy.bland2@redcross. org.

County commissioners have unanimously approved a revised Pipeline Easement Agreement with Georgiafor construction of a 15mile pipeline as part of Quality project. The agreement will cross six different county roads in seven different locations, including: Smith Road, Jim Lee Road, County Road 30, CR 361 (Puckett Road), Cary Stephens Road (twice), CR359 (Golf Course Road) and CR 356 (Hampton Springs Road). The pipeline will also cross under state-owned U.S. Hwy. 19/98 and follow along Peterson Landing, Carlton Cemetery and Holt roads for short distances. The agreement includes a 30-foot easement that will allow Georgiacross underneath each location. The pipeline will consists of a four-and-ahalf-foot diameter pipe that will transport the local Foley Cellulose closer to the mouth of the Fenholloway River. The pipeline will end 1.5 miles upstream from the river mouth in the brackish tidal portion of the river. The primary reason for relocating the discharge to the tidal portion of the river is due to the salt content (salinity) of the Salinity will not pose a concern at the relocation point because the salt content of the treated of the brackish water in the lower reaches of the river, Foley Mill Public Mixon said. County Attorney Conrad Bishop recommended commissioners approve the agreement, stating that he had made just two minor changes to the original draft. According to Bishop, the only changes made were to ensure the venue for any litigation would be in Taylor County, and to make certain font sizes in the agreement larger. County commissioners approved the form easement last year, pending the addition of a completed legal right-ofway description. The revised agreement included a completed legal description for the easements and, at the minor administrative changes, including extending the review time for any amendments from 15 to 30 days. Commissioner Jim Moody asked Georgiaattendance if any of the changes would hold up the project. No, Mixon replied, Our attorney has already reviewed and approved it. It was a fun negotiation, Bishop said. commissioners when the pipeline construction would begin, Foley Cellulose Fenholloway Project Leader Chet Thompson is reviewing bids right now, and that construction could begin anywhere from October 2018 to January 2019, depending on how quickly the bid selection process progressed. On a motion by Commissioner Thomas Demps and second by Commissioner Malcolm Page, the board voted 5-0 in favor of the pipeline easement agreement. Fenholloway Water Quality Project In accordance with the Florida Department of Environmental direction, Foley Cellulose continues to make progress towards completing the Project, which includes and improvements to its wastewater treatment system and relocation discharge. Our guiding principles include a commitment to comply with all state and federal regulations. The guiding principles of compliance and integrity motivate us to complete the project in accordance with Order, Mixon said. Foley is spending more than $56 million to modify and upgrade our wastewater treatment system. Construction began in March 2017, and the project is 60% complete. The project remains on schedule, and we plan to meet our startup date in the fall of 2018, Mixon states. Following completion of the wastewater treatment Cellulose will relocate the the freshwater portion of the Fenholloway River to the brackish tidal portion of the river at mile marker 1.5 by March 2021. The pipeline will be approximately 15 miles long, buried underground and permitted along a route in Taylor County intended to have the least impact to the environment and the public. The United States Army Corps of Engineers and the FDEP has already renewed the necessary construction permits for the pipeline. Our commitment to the environment and our community begins with committed to meeting clean water standards, so our families can continue to enjoy rivers like the Fenholloway and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, Mixon said.
