Along with election ofcials all across Florida, Taylor County Supervisor of Elections Dana Southerland and the local canvassing board have been conducting a machine recount of three statewide races U.S. Senate, Florida Governor and Florida Commission of Agriculture after results from last weeks general election fell within the statemandated 0.5% threshold. Once the machine recount is complete (expected to be after presstime Tuesday), Southerland and the threemember canvassing board were expected to begin a manual or hand recount of some 160-200 ballots, which include provisional ballots, as well as ballots that featured under votes (no oval lled in) or over votes (more than one oval lled in). While many see Election Day as the end of the election cycle, Southerland explained that work in her ofce has continued, with the rst unofcial results due to the Florida Department of State by last Saturday, Nov. 10, at 12 noon. Over the course of an election cycle many people will say, Wont you be glad the day after the election? I always smile and say I sure will, knowing that the day after the election doesnt end the election cycle for us, Southerland said. This recount is a very good example. We spent the days after the election preparing our rst unofcial results to be uploaded to the Division of Election, which were completed Friday morning. We anticipated there would be a recount, and there was buzz everywhere you looked and with everything you read. However, a recount cant begin until one is actually ordered, Southerland said. Those orders calling for a machine recount arrived on Saturday, and work began on Sunday with the testing of the tabulating equipment to be used in the recount. They began tabulating ballots on Monday and continued into Tuesday. The results of the second unofcial returns are due to the Department of State by Thursday, Nov. 15, at 3 p.m. However, that will likely not be the end of the recounts, because both the U.S. Senate race and the Florida Commissioner of Agriculture race are expected to fall within the 0.25% threshold, which would trigger a manual recount if the number of overvotes and undervotes is more than needed to change the outcome. While it appeared on election night that the Republican candidates in all three statewide races would win their respective seats, returns from several counties continued to be reported throughout last week, and by Thursday, the margins had shrunk considerably. In the case of the commissioner of agriculture race, the lead switched directions. In that race, Democrat Index Editorial . ................. A-4 Living . .....................

The allocations, separated into different pots, are based on the federal RESTORE Act, passed by the U.S. Congress to create a framework through which the funds would be distributed to federal, state and local agencies. The Taylor County Commission has earmarked the countys $4.1 million direct allocation, also known as its Pot 1 funds, for canal dredging along the coast. The rst dredging project, at Keaton Beach, is expected to get underway in early 2019, followed by dredging the Steinhatchee public boat ramp basin later in 2019. Projects in Dark Island, Cedar Island and Dekle Beach will follow on a timeframe expected to run through 2033 due to the 15-year window in which payments will be made to the U.S. Department of Treasury by BP and others. The countys second allocation, known as Pot 3 funds, will total $12.6 million, and the current plan is to use that money to purchase coastal property and construct new boat City Council to meet Thursday Due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and a scheduling issue, the Perry City Council will meet only one time this month, Thursday, Nov. 15, at 5:30 p.m. Council members approved the amended schedule at their last meeting in October.

This is a project that the sheriff has been working on since he took ofce, TCSO Chief Deputy Chuck Mincy said. The school district graciously donated an unused portable building and leased us a piece of land on campus. The substation is located on the west side of the school property near the baseball elds and across the street from Citizens Bank.

A-5 Taco Times November 14, 2018 Living During his nearly fourdecade tenure as Taylor Countys extension agent, Clay Olson was the go to man. Have a question about a tree? Ask Clay. Need help with an agricultural program? Ask Clay. Want to become a citrus farmer? Ask Clay. Last week, Olsons colleagues, family and friends honored his 36 years of service to the Taylor County community with a retirement luncheon held at Forest Capital Hall. Displays showcasing Olsons accomplishments and awards were prominently featured throughout the reception area, and co-workers shared the following highlights of his career and education: After graduating in 1976 from the University of Florida (UF) with a bachelors in forestry (range ecosystem management), Clay began work with UF for six years in the Soil Science Department and the Agricultural Engineering department (three years in each) while completing a masters degree in agricultural extension and education. In 1982, he began work as the county extension director and the agricultural and natural resource extension faculty in Taylor County. Clays initial educational programming included timber management, specialty products from the timber resource, cattle and forage production, articial reef construction and deployment, youth and community development. While serving as county extension director for 36 years, county support for extension grew dramatically in budgets and personnel. The extension faculty grew from two IFAS lines to four. Support staff (program assistants, clerical) grew from two to ve. Budgets more than tripled. In addition, facilities for extension department operations expanded from 1,600 square feet to more than 25,000 square feet and 15 acres of land for youth and adult program development. Clay continued to develop programs that addressed local issues, as well as IFAS priorities issues like renewable energy and small farm protability. During his tenure with county extension, Olson established the following notable programs with broad-reaching educational impacts: funded, local countyowned shiitake mushroom demonstration farm site in 1988 that resulted in numerous eld days and a commercial production facility in the county that produced 1,000 pounds a week for 10 years. one-half acre perennial peanut demonstration plantings around the county and region (198590) for livestock and hay production demonstrations. Set up initial demonstration planting at the Sunbelt Exposition in Moultrie, Ga. As interest increased a growers association was formed to disseminate educational information for crop establishment and management. Producers began to experience improved livestock performance and a demand for legume hay that enhanced farm protability and sustainability. an 80-acre perennial peanut hayeld at the local airport to support FAA grant match funding for infrastructure development at the airport. Field was brought into production in 2002 and continues to be in production today. Education Project Grant ($50,000) to establish three 40-acre elds of perennial peanuts in Taylor and Madison counties in 2001 to transition tobacco farmers to new crops. county, $200,000 articial reef construction and deployment contract (Wakulla, Taylor Dixie Levy and Citrus counties in 1988) and several additional county contracts with NOAA and FWC between marine agent hirings. Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment banning gill nets, which hit the local shing community hard. One result was the formation of enterprise zones by the Florida legislature in affected communities. Taylor County extension began an educational program teaching businesses and residents how to apply for tax incentives under the new zone criteria. The extension educational program returned in excess of $3 million to the local community for the 20year life of the enterprise zone, as documented by the Ofce of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development (OTTED). interests kept requesting the Master Gardener course be offered in the county, so with the help of regional faculty, the 50-hour course was offered locally. Clay taught 35 hours of the 50hour course offered in Taylor County in 1999, 2002 and 2008. with 4-H, teaching handson vegetable production in the local school system. The projects were recognized nationally. a $450,000 renewable energy grant from the State of Florida in 2010 to demonstrate the use of a WWII technology (wood gasication) to generate electricity for broiler production in Taylor County. The grant was received, and a truck powered by gasication technology was used to teach the technology to faculty and interested public around the state at various workshops and eld days. soil science to incarcerated individuals in the local state corrections facility in Taylor County for several years. in Haiti developing winter vegetable production systems using drip irrigation in 2006 and 2007. years developing education programs and trialing cold tolerant citrus for the North Florida/South Georgia area. Local producers in Taylor County have invested $2 million in the enterprise in the past two years. Several eld days and demonstrations have been held from Pensacola to Valdosta, Ga., for new growers. Olson closes the book on 36-year career as county extension agent

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for this minute. By the time Ive nished writing this letter, many more minutes will have passed. Each minute that ticks by reects your patience, your sovereignty and your work in my life. Ill never know (unless you choose to reveal it to me when I meet you faceto-face) what tragedies youve withheld for my sake in the minutes Ive already lived. Likewise, I have no idea what the next minutes will hold. But, right now, I want to thank you for every minute, including the minutes you still have planned for me minutes that will allow me another chance to learn from my mistakes. And (with your help), to do better the next minute by correcting and making right a poor choice, an unkind word or a sloppilydone project. Thank you, also, for each minute in which I wait for you to send another creative thought and opportunity my way. Another minute to live the life you have customized just for me. And, Lord, Im tremendously thankful each time your mercy, love and wisdom gets me through difcult and disappointing moments. Without you watching over me minute-by-minute, Id be hopelessly lost. And hopelessly hopeless. You are a powerful and sovereign God, yet you remain a devoted Father. You are more than wonderful. Thank you for all You are to me, every minute of every day. Your grateful daughter, Sheryl Have you ever written a letter of thanksgiving to your heavenly Father? If so, what did you say? If you havent, would you like to thank God for a specic need Hes met or a memory of a time you felt His nearness? 1 Peter 5:7 reminds us of Gods constant involvement in our lives. Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

A-12 Taco Times November 14, 2018 On Halloween night, the parking lot of the Steinhatchee Community Center was transformed into a spook-tacular wonderland. According to Trunk or Treat event coordinator Anna King, 15 local volunteers dressed up in car trunks with candy for the annual Trunk or Treat event. From 6-8 p.m., 200 children and their families showed off their costumes in a parade before going trunk to trunk collecting candy. We were blessed to have a few businesses and county outstanding members of the Steinhatchee Community, King said. I started Trunk or Treat three years ago on a whim, and it caught on Every year we have more participants and a wave of families that come parade through the community center. I think the event went great, and its a great opportunity to support our local kids, King continued. My goal for the event is to provide a safe, free and family-friendly environment. We look forward to next year and hope to have another great turn out. Every volunteer went allout decorating their trunks, competing to win the title of Scariest, Most Creative and Peoples Choice.
