Schools warned to beware




of "candy-flavored drugs"


TALLAHASSEE, FL -
Attorney General Bill
McCollum and the Florida
Association of School Resource
Officers issued a consumer
advisory this week warning par-
ents, teachers and school
administrators of an alarming
trend with dangerous implica-
tions for Florida school chil-
dren.


Federal and state law
enforcement agencies are
reporting that flavored drugs,
particularly methampheta-
mines, heroin and marijuana,
are circulating throughout the
United States, often enticing
younger children. These drugs
could be ingested by unsuspect-
ing children and are extremely
harmful, say authorities.


IRSphone, e-mail


scam is underway


FROM THE BETTER BUSINESS'
BUREAU

As tax season gets underway,
scammers are using phone calls
and e-mails to steal personal
and financial data from victims
using the IRS name as a lure.
Refunds, audits and the pro-
posed legislation regarding
rebates are all topics scammers
use to entice victims to reveal
information the scammers can
then use to empty existing
accounts or steal a person's
identity.
One scam involves a phone
call from someone claiming to
be an IRS employee who tells
the victim he is eligible for a siz-
able rebate for filing his taxes
early. The caller then says he
needs the victim's bank account
number to process the direct
deposit; if the target refuses, he
is told he cannot receive the
rebate. At this time, no legisla-
tion has been enacted to pro-
vide advance payments to tax-
payers. Additionally, the IRS
does not force taxpayers to use
direct deposit and does not
gather information by tele-
phone.
Another phone scam also
involves a caller claiming to be
an IRS employee who is calling
because the IRS sent a check to
the individual who has not
cashed the check. The. scam-


mner claims they need to 'verify
the individual's bank account
number. The IRS does not con-
firm whether a person has
cashed a paper check and only
asks for bank account informa-
tion when taxpayers indicate on
their tax return that they are
choosing direct deposit.
An e-mail scam tells the
recipient he is eligible for a tax
refund and tells the victim to
click on a link to access a refund
claim form, which asks for per-
sonal and financial information.
The IRS does not send unso-
licited e-mail about tax matters.
Moreover, filing a tax return is
the only way to apply for a
refund.
Because victims of identity
theft often spend hundreds of
hours trying to repair their
credit after an identity thief
uses their personal and finan-
cial data, it is best to take steps
to deter identity thieves.
The IRS suggests typing the
IRS.gov address into an
Internet address window, rather
than clicking on a link in an e-
mail or opening an attachment.
Additionally, your BBB rec-
ommends never divulging per-
sonal information over the
phone unless you initiated the
call and know' to whom you are
speaking. For additional infor-
mation, .and advice you can
trust, start with bbb.org.


"These dangerous drugs are
being cleverly disguised and dis-
tributed among our children
and we must work together to
educate them about these very
grave risks," said Attorney
General McCollum.
According to recent reports,
methamphetamine with added
flavors was first noticed on the
West Coast, but is rapidly mak-
ing its way across the country.
Flavors can include strawberry,
chocolate, cola and others. The
flavoring reduces the bitter
taste of the drug and does not
affect the potency of the drug.
Children may mistake the drug
for candy pop rocks.
Another disturbing report is
that of "cheese,',' a form of hero-
in combined with 'Irlenol-PM
caplets. Known as "starter
heroin," cheese caused the
deaths of at least 21 Texas
teenagers in 2005 and the num-
ber of reported cheese-related
arrests has steadily increased.
Cheese is particularly danger-
ous because it combines the
double depressants provided by
the heroin and the sleep-induc-
ing medication. Cheese is cheap
and highly addictive and law
enforcement believes its use
and abuse will quickly spread


throughout the country.
"This a grave problem and
shows to what lengths drug
dealers will go," said Robert
Tricquet, president of the
Florida Association of School
Resource Officers. "This is a
direct attempt to reach out and
attract a younger age group lur-
ing them into the drug culture.
We must be ever vigilant with
our children to protect them
from these predators."
Additional reports of gum-
balls filled with marijuana and
narcotics packaged or disguised
as candy or other more enticing
objects have raised concern
from Florida law enforcement
and should be considered seri-
ous threats by parents, teachers
and school administrators.
Children should be advised not
to accept any candy which may
resemble one of these new drug
forms and should turn over any
in their possession to their
teacher, principal, or school
resource officer. Parents should
encourage their children to
avoid any participation in dis-
tributing or using the drugs, no
matter how harmless they may
seem, and report any suspicious
activity to the appropriate
. authorities or a trusted adult.


Wakulla Bank implements

robbery prevention program


Wakulla Bank has joined the
hundreds of banks participating
in the Florida Bankers
Association "No Hats, No
Hoods, No Sunglasses" pro-
gram, a statewide response to
the rising number of bank rob-
beries in Florida.
According to a recent article,
Florida ranks ninth in the
nation for bank robberies with
361 incidents totaling more
than $2.4 million in 2007. The
number of robberies was up
nearly 40 percent from 2006.
"Law enforcement officials
say the 'no hats' program is an
effective deterrent, particularly


to 'note job' criminals who want
to enter and leave banks with-
out being noticed," said
Wakulla Bank President and
CEO Walter C. Dodson, Jr.
Nearly 40 percent of all
bank robberies involve disguis-
es intended to prevent identifi-
cation by bank security videos.
Wakulla Bank will post
notices alerting customers to
remove hats, hoods and sun-
glasses. Although customer
compliance is not mandatory,
bank officials say the program is
intended to improve the likeli-
hood that criminals can be iden-
tified and captured.

"Variety is the spice of life."
Torreya Garden Club mem-
bers and guests learned how to
get more variety into their gar-
dening when they met Monday,
February 4, at the County
Extension Building.
Pres. Sandra Parrish,
extended a warm welcome to
everyone.
Alice Williford gave the
devotion "Have the courage
to say no; have the courage to
face the truth; and the courage
to do the right thing because it
is right."
Refreshments were served
by Hostesses Mildred Guilford
and Mary Lou Holley. The
table was beautiful. They used
a Valentine Day's theme.
Everything looked and tasted
delicious from the dainty sand-
wiches to the "yummy" pink-
filled tarts and pink punch.
Next, Sandra introduced
landscape specialist Mr. Wayne
Thorpe from the Washington-
Holmes Technical Center.
Now we get to variety in gar-
dening! Mr. Thorpe recom-
mended Container Gardening
as a 'way to enhance our present
garden decor. He explained
that with Container Gardening,
you can highlight dull areas by
setting containers of flowers in
strategic places and a Hanging
Baskets filled with colorful
flowers or greenery.
Also, Window Boxes may be
used where appropriate. For
example, to enhance your
entrance set a large pot of flow-
ers to flank the door and put up
hanging baskets along your
porch. He cautioned "Have a
focal point and use similar
plants in similar pots in one
area. Group like plants togeth-
er.
The beauty is that you can
change your focus and colors
whenever you wish.
He gave a number of tips:
(1) Containers need a good
drainage system, (2) Large pots
are better than several small
ones, (3) Plant in odd numbers
when grouping, (4) Water prop-
erly -wet roots, (5) Fertilize
correctly, (6) Never prune in
the fall, etc.
Mr. Thorpe gave us great
ideas and much valuable infor-
mation on Container
Gardening.
Sandra presented Mr.
Thorpe with a gift in apprecia-
tion of his excellent talk. She
thanked the hostesses for the
refreshments and the attendees
for their participation.
Mary Alice Minnick
announced the Residential Yard

Johns, 19230 N.E. Elijah

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor-
Anyone who has ever heard
15-year-old Summer Attaway
sing is certain she has talent.
But the Clarksville teen wants
to prove it to the nation and
she's well on her way to doing
just that.
Just three Saturdays ago,
Summer, the daughter of Guy
and Marleen Attaway, took off
for Orlando to audition for the
NBC television show,
"America's Got Talent."
According to the show's web-
site, the hit talent competition
series returns this summer with
new host, Jerry Springer, new
judge, Sharon Osbourne, and
all new performers from across
the country ready to win
America's vote. After her Jan.
26 audition, Summer is- one
step closer to being among
.those contenders.
Summer and her mother
stood in line for an estimated
four hours waiting for her
chance to sing for a show pro-
ducer. "There were a bunch of
interesting people there,"
Summer remarks, noting that
at least 1000 auditioned. "You
went in 10 at a time. All the
singers were grouped together
and the dancers were grouped
,together."
When it was at last her turn,
Summer sang a beautiful rendi-
tion of Amazing Grace for the
cameras. "[The producer I sang
for] really didn't say anything,
but he would cut people off at
the end of a sentence some-
times and he let me do a full
verse," she says. The video-
taped audition will be reviewed
by a group of producers and a
decision will be rendered on
whether or not she will advance
to the next level. "They said if
you make it they will call you
within two weeks to a month,"
she adds. The next round is
semi-finals and the finalists will
be on the show for America to

Sacred


Harp sing


decide the million dollar winner.
Although "America's Got
Talent" is produced by Simon
Cowell of "American Idol," the
shows are different in that
singers compete with dancers,
comedic performers, and others
with unique acts.
The website notes that in the
first four audition episodes, the
judges will select the best acts
who will move on to the "boot
camp" episode where they will
have a chance to perfect their
craft. Each performer will be
required to demonstrate the
diversity of his or her act in
order to move on to the semi-
final performance episodes
where the judging will be
turned over to the American
viewing audience who will vote
each week for their favorites.
The series culminates with a
live finale where one act will
walk away with a million dollar
prize.
Whether she winds ,up on
television or not, Summer
enjoyed the audition process. "I
was just grateful to get the
experience, even if I don't make
it," she says. "How many peo-
ple from Calhoun County can
say they've done something like
that?"
Her mom is equally proud.
"She had been sick all week
and when it was time for her to
sing, her voice was as clear as a
bell," she remarks. "A lot of
praying went up. I was just
amazed she had the guts to get
up there and do it."

Stephanie Mayo brings home a medal



Lady Cats compete at state


BY COACH ROBBIE SMITH
Hard work pays off. This
was true this past Saturday
when Stephanie Mayo won a
medal at the weightlifting state
finals.
Mayo had a 155 pound
bench press and a 160 pound
clean and jerk. The 315 pound
total clinched 6th place in her
weight class (medals are award-
ed to the top 6 lifters in each
weight class). Mayo was the
only person, boy or girl, not to
miss a summer workout and
that dedication paid off
Saturday.
Hali Smith, Serena
Bradford, KK Beauchamp,
Carrie TUcker, Shannon Hall,
Mallory Basford and Dakota
Varnum all fought hard and
represented the school with
class.
Freshman Hali Smith had a
solid performance with a 95
pound bench press and a 95
pound clean and jerk.
KK struggled at the meet on
Saturday, but still has two years
left to get a state medal.
Beauchamp has now qualified
for the state final two times in
two tries. She is also a two time
section champ.
Carrie Tucker was 3 for 3
Saturday in the bench press lift-
ing 135 pounds on her third
attempt. Carrie just missed the
jerk on 135 and finished with a
260 pound total. Carrie was
the section 2 champion in the
119 pound class this year.
Carrie will continue to improve
in the weightroom, and go after
a state medal next year as a
senior.
Senior Shannon Hall gave a
great effort as well at the state


final. Shannon was the section
2 champion in the 139 pound
class. She will be missed great-
ly next year.
Seventh grader Serena
Bradford shows tremendous
potential for the future. Serena
had a 150 pound bench press
and 135 pound clean and jerk
in the state finals. She reminds
me a lot of former state champi-
on Ashlee Cain.
Junior Mallory Basford lift-
ed hard but never got on track
in the clean and jerk. Mallory
bench pressed 130 pounds.
Mallory still has a year left and
will continue to get better.
Dakota Varnum finished the
meet with a 170 pound bench
press and a 120 pound clean
and jerk. The 290 was not
what Dakota was wanting, but
with two years of lifting still in
front of her, the future is bright.
The girls had a great season
this year. It was our 4th year
going undefeated, we won the
team trophy at the Cougar
Challenge, we had five Section
2 champions, 8 state qualifiers,
and a state medalist. We will
only be losing two girls this year
to graduation. On paper, next
year'S team should be the best
we've ever had here at AHS.
I'd like to thank everyone
who supported me and the girls
this year. I would also like to
thank the girls who lifted this
year. You all made me proud.
Most people don't understand
what these girls go through to
get to lift at a high level. It is
not a glamorous sport. This
year's team paid their dues
with countless hours of lifting
and should be proud of what
they have accomplished.


Turnovers cost Cats

in district tournament


BY JIM McINTOSH
BLOUNTSTOWN, FEB-
RUARY 8-They still hoped to
be playing this Thursday. But
costly turnovers resulting in
easy buckets for the Cottondale
Hornets (10-1; 6-3, 2-2A)
ended Altha's (14-8; 5-4, 2-2A)
basketball season and the high
school career of seven senior
Wildcats.
This semi-final district tour-
nament game started out slowly
in the first quarter with
Cottondale up by one, 8-7, at
the end of it.. The Hornets
began stepping into the passing
lanes in the second quarter,
picking off the Wildcats' passes
which resulted in easy transi-
tion baskets and a 25-14 half-
time lead. In the third period
Cottondale widened the gap to
41-25.
In shooting percentages the
Hornets topped the Wildcats
only in field goals, 54% (20 of
37) to 48% (12 of 25%). From


beyond the arc Altha shot 23%
(3 of 13) to Cottondale's 13%
(1 of 8). The Wildcats were
also better at the charity stripe,
making 53% (8 of 15) to 43%
(10 of 23) for the Hornets.
Josh McIntosh led the
Wildcats in scoring with 13
points (including a 3-pointer)
along with 5 rebounds, an
assist, a steal, and he rejected a
Hornet's shot attempt. Drew
Brazell knocked down 11 points
while pulling down 8 rebounds.
Drew swatted away 3 Hornets'
shot attempts, he had a steal
and an assist. Kevin Saldana
put up 7 points (including a 3-
pointer) and he collected 5
rebounds. Jake Edenfield
stroked one from beyond the
arc and one at the charity
stripe. Also, Jake cleared a
rebound. .Corde Beauchamp,
Ethan Byler, and Cale Chafin
(who was back after missing 3
games with a high ankle sprain)
each chipped in 2 points.

Johnson's legendary career, fol-
lowed by a time to visit with old

Event organizer Robert
Trammell, said, "Not many
people earn the title of legend
during their lifetime, but Coach
Milton Johnson has done just
that. In addition to his phenom-
enal records on the court, the
contributions he made to the
lives of so many young people
are tremendous."

Athletic Signing
Three senior football players
from BHS signed to play for the
colleges of their choice
Wednesday, Feb. 6.After some
words of encouragement by
Coach Jordan and descriptions
of their schools, the players
signed their letters of intent
with their parents.
Cory Cox, son of Lisa and
Blane Cox, quarterback for the
Tigers, signed with the
University of North Alabama in
Florence. He chose UNA
because he did not want-to be
far away from his family; his
brother Chase is attending col-
lege about 3 hours away. He
intends to coach college football
one day. His family is planning
to move to Birmingham, so
they are glad both of their sons
will not be too far away. Coach
Jordan commented that Cory
was "hard-working and self-
motivated"; he believes Cory
will do well in college football.
Cory is the 3rd BHS player to
go to UNA.
Ryan Baker, son of Terry
and Lynn Baker, has been
recruited by Louisiana State
University. Ryan visited LSU
last May and said "It was
everything I hoped it would
be!" He played running back
and linebacker for the Tigers,
and will be playing linebacker
for LSU. He plans on majoring
in physical therapy for four
years. In ten years he would
like to be playing professional
football for the New England
Patriots.
Jonathon Lockhart, defen-
sive back for the Tigers, signed
with Georgia Tech. He is the
son of Alan Copeland and
Stephanie. Elkins. When asked
why he chose Georgia Tech he
said because of its "high stan-
dards in academics". When he
gets older he would like to pur-
sue a career in Engineering
while living in Atlanta. His fam-
ily is extremely proud of his
accomplishments as well as the
'Tigers' head coach, Greg
Jordan. "If Lockhart applies the
same amount of effort as he
does athletically to everything
in his life I am sure he will suc-
ceed." says Coach Jordan.
Congratulations to our
Tigers!!! May they continue to
go far in life.

Cats' Cuisine
By: Meagan Wiltse


At the beginning of the year,
Cats' Cuisine students were
divided into groups and each
group was asked to create their
own restaurant. The groups
came up with their own restau-
rant name, location, menu, cost
of equipment. They hired other
students in Cats' Cuisine to be
their servers, cooks and man-
agers.
This semester as you dine at
Cats' Cuisine, be prepared to
experience a different meal
from each style of restaurant.
The atmosphere and menu will
be based around a group's
restaurant. Our next serving
date will be on Thursday,
February 21. The restaurant
for this date will be based
around the popular '80's movie,
"Saturday Night Fever". We
hope you will come dine with us
each time and experience a new
sensation.

coral reef environments while
swimming in man made coral
reefs with fish, stingrays and
sharks!!

"Few of the ,
men and women
about us today
have what they
want, and few
want what they
have."
The above
words sum up
man as well as


any we know.
It's human nature to find our
little world is actually a prison
wall. Within these walls we
must spend our days spend
them happily or resentfully.
We gain our victories, not by
assaulting the walls, but by
accepting them. We accept
life. by looking at it in this
respect: However
uncontrollable our past,
however disappointing our
present our future can be
what we choose to make it.
We may seem at times to be
the prisoners of fate, while we
are actually its master.
OUR THOUGHT TO
REMEMBER:
The mastery of life is often
just a simple adjustment.

,free From All Guilt
Hebrews 10:22
Unless you and I draw near
to our wonderful God, we can-
not be cleansed from a guilty
conscience. Trusting in our own
strength, wisdom, and under-
standing, we become blurry -
eyed and cannot see the true
extent of our condition or the
wonderful nature of its remedy.
We cannot just jump into
God's presence on our own
merits. Ours is contaminated
blood, and a barrier of guilt is
piled up against the gate of
heaven. We need a true blue
friend of the court, an interven-
er, a go-between with adequate
power.
Jesus is the One who fully
understands our condition
because He knows the mind of
the Judge. He is fully able to
bring about a pardon of our
guilt and its collision with the
moral law of God. His forgive-
ness is sufficient to satisfy jus-
tice and close every case. That,

Hospital Administrator Ron Gilliard discusses...




New day for emergency medical services


BY RON GILLIARD
Hospital Administrator

Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
will assume management of the
local Emergency Medical
Services (EMS) starting
Wednesday, February 13th.
We're doing this at the request
of the County Commissioners.
We're looking forward to doing
so and feel you will be pleased
with the results. Let me share
some of the details with you.
Blountstown native and city
council member Phillip Hall,
will be our supervisor. Phillip
has many years of experience
and knowledge in this field and
we're very confident he will
build an outstanding service to
meet your EMS needs.
We've been working very
hard to begin services. We're
appreciative of the great sup-
port we've gotten from the
County Commissioners and
Ms. Ruth Attaway, Clerk of the
Court.
It was quite a shock for
everyone when the previous
company notified the County
they would be ending services
at midnight the day of the
notice! The Commissioners
and Ms. Ruth have done an


outstanding job of arranging
coverage in the interim until we
get "up and running."
The cooperation with sur-
rounding counties, especially
Gadsen and Liberty has. been
noteworthy in the smoothness
of implementation for tempo-
rary coverage. Previous agree-
ments between the counties
allowed this to take place. I'm
thankful from the hospital's
stand point for this since we
never had any "break" in cov-
erage for transfers to larger hos-
pitals.
EMS will be a part ,of the
hospital. The new employees
will be on the hospital staff and
have the same benefits as our
current employees. I'm confi-
dent it will be a great team! We
had many highly qualified
applicants and Phillip has put
together a top-notch team.
I personally feel this will be
an extension of the remarkable
turnaround we've been working
on here in the hospital. Now,
the EMS will also experience a
"new day" in its operations and
services, and, again, I feel you'll
be pleased.
Many citizens thought we
previously operated the ambu-
lance service. I would often


"EMS will be a part of
the hospital. The new
employees will be on the
hospital staff and have the
same benefits as our cur-
rent employees."
-Ron Gilliard
receive calls complaining about
the services. I politely let the
caller know they did not work
for the hospital. Well, now they
do!
Our Board felt taking EMS
was the right thing to do. We
feel we will run an outstanding
service and it will perhaps
increase the volume of patients
seen in the hospital. That has
been the case in the brief time
since the old company ceased
operations.
Our Board concluded taking
the EMS would result in
improving it just as they've
improved the hospital since
regaining it from a "for-profit"
company. Any profit generated
will now go back into making it.
an eyen better service, rather
than to some corporate owner
in another state.
We'll work with the
Commissioners to further


improve the overall healthcare
system for the citizens we both
serve. This is a great first step
in just that direction!
The EMS will be an exten-
sion of the hospital into the
County. We'll strive for a cour-
teous, compassionate, and high-
ly professional service. That's
the only type service our Board
will accept and we're confident
Phillip and his team will pro-
duce just that.
Initially, EMS will be sta-
tioned out of the hospital.
However, we're looking into
having an ambulance in other
locations in the County to
improve response time. (More
on this in the near future.)
The ambulances are now in
excellent condition, well
equipped, well stocked and
ready to roll! The staff is well
trained and prepared to meet
your emergency needs. You can
rest assured you'll receive out-
standing ambulance service.
Just like the hospital, it's a
"new day" in Emergency
Medical Services!
If you have any questions on
the new ambulance service, or
anything about the hospital,
give me a call at 674-5411, ext
206.


Cooper employee of the quarter
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital Administrator Ron Gilliard is pleased to
announce that Linda Cooper has been named employee of the
quarter. "She's always very helpful with anything you ask her to
do," Gilliard remarks. "She always greets visitors with a smile and
has an outstanding work performance." Cooper, who works in envi-
ronmental services, was honored at a reception Friday morning.

Rep. Marti Coley proposes




SBack to School Tax Holiday


.. TALLAHASSEE For the
'-' .,second year in a row, State
Representative Marti Coley (R-
; Marianna) filed legislation this
week renewing Florida's popu-
N""' lar Back to School Sales Tax
Holiday. The legislation would
S allow parents to purchase
.. ,books, clothing, backpacks, and
.. other school supplies, up to $50
dollars per item, during the
7 'week beginning August 2nd and
ending August 11th.
According to a 2007 report
from the National Retail
Federation (NRF), the "back-
to-school" period is second only
.. to the fourth quarter holiday
season in terms of sales.
"Florida's families are feel-
ing the pinch from a sluggish
economy and a tax burden that
MISS CAPITAL CITY USA: Jami Lynn Daniels of Kinord will soon be

Boyd holds district to 15 years
RL f Av


healthcare meeting


TALLAHASSEE-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
.North Florida) hosted a meet-
ing with the District Healthcare
Council Monday to discuss
local and regional healthcare
issues, federal appropriations
requests for the upcoming fiscal
year, and North Florida's rural
hospitals. Representatives
from all 16 counties in
Congressman Boyd's congres-
sional district were at the meet-
ing to express the healthcare
concerns and needs of their
respective counties.
"There was a productive
dialogue and a good exchange
of ideas at the meeting, and I
am hopeful that we can better
serve the healthcare needs of
North Floridians by bringing
the district together like we did
here today," said Congressman
Boyd. "The District
Healthcare Council focuses on
regional problem solving, allow-
ing our counties to come togeth-
er and pool their resources to
improve the overall quality of
healthcare in North Florida. I
have always said that when
neighboring counties and com-
munities of interest come
together, it's a good thing."
At Monday's meeting,
Congressman Boyd encouraged


members of the District
Healthcare Council to consider
the healthcare concerns of sur-
rounding counties in addition to
their individual concerns.
Congressman Boyd also talked
to the counties about working
more closely with the business
community and state and local
agencies in order to make them
active participants in achieving
the healthcare goals of North
Florida.
Congressman Boyd formed
the District Healthcare Council

Meadows announces the sen-
tencing, in Calhoun County
Circuit, of Anthony Bull
Patterson, for a charge of Sale
of Cocaine.
Patterson, 30, of
Blountstown, was convicted, at
trial, on January 11, 2008. He
was found to be a Habitual
Felony Offender and sentenced
to 15 years in prison.
Florida law requires that an

continues to bite into their wal-
lets," said Representative
Coley. "Providing back-to-
school tax relief not only gives
moms and dads some much-
needed relief, it also has the
potential to encourage the kind
of activity we need to get our
economy moving again."
When you combine last
year's estimates with this year's
projected savings, taxpayers


-statewide will save a combined
$70 million dollars as a result of
the 2007 and 2008 back-to-
school sales tax holidays.
Throughout the past decade,
House Republicans have led
the way in providing tax relief
to Florida's families through
property tax relief, sales tax
holidays, a reduction on the
taxes paid for communications


services, and a total elimination
of the taxes seniors and savers
pay.
The total savings for
Florida's taxpayers under
House Republican leadership
during the past decade is now
estimated at more than $31 bil-
lion dollars, or almost $2000
per person for each of the more
than 18 million people who call
Florida home.
