The Suwannee River Water Management District governing board
issued the agency's first-ever Phase II Water Shortage Order Tuesday, -
including mandatory water-use restrictions, that will become effective
districtwide April 7.
The order outlines restrictions for all water-use categories: residential,
commercial, industrial and agricultural.
Between now and April 7, district staff are expected to meet with city
and county officials to coordinate implementation and enforcement
guidelines. They also will meet with commercial and industrial interests to
explain the order and to solicit input.
When asked Thursday, City of Perry and Taylor County officials said
they have not yet been contacted by the district about the order.
According to SRWMD officials, the unprecedented action was taken in
response to extremely low groundwater levels experienced throughout the
15-county region during the current drought, coupled with predictions that
the drought will intensify 'over the next several months.
"Even before the mandatory restrictions go into effect, we urge all
citizens to continue to voluntarily conserve water," said David Still,
district deputy executive director.
The district is suffering its eighth-driest 24-month period since 1932,
with a rainfall deficit of.28.7 inches.
Forty-nine wells set new December lows and 17 wells set new historic
lows. Twenty-three emergency permits for dry wells were' issued in
December, for a total of 157 issued between April 1 arid Dec. 31.
According to SRWMD numbers, observed wells in Taylor County have
reported new record monthly lows in five of the past six months (when
compared to the available data from 1978 to 2006).
The Econfina River near Perry as well as the Aucilla River at Lamont
Although recent heavy rains in Georgia have led to slight increases in
sonoel:ocal river levels, the Suwannee at Branford is still below the 10th
percentile, and the Santa Fe River near Fort White is about an inch below
its former historic low.
The SRWMD board approved the Phase II Water Shortage Order during
a public hearing Tuesday.
The order's restrictions include those on agricultural uses such as
* irrigation including prohibitions against the use of overhead irrigation
systems during certain daytime hours as well as soil flooding for pest
control or soil preservation.
Washing or cleaning streets, driveways and sidewalks will also be
prohibited except to meet safety or health standards.

The well-worn path leading from Dundee Street, and through a small wooded area, spoke volumes of the foot traffic to and
from an abandoned home that Perry Police Department officials had labeled a "haven for all sorts of illegal activities." The path
now leads only to a pile of rubble, after the City of Perry demolished the structure which had been declared a public nuisance.

,DHid you know...
Taylor County was created in 1856 and named for Zachary Taylor, Mexican War hero and president of the United States; he
'had also fought in Florida's Seminole War. The original, temporary county seat selected by the legislature was the "house of
.David Bryant." In 1857 the board of county commissioners purchased 40 acres from the state, at a cost of $75, for the
,purposes of a county seat. "A courthouse of rough logs" was erected and the new town was named Rose Head. It did not prosper
at~first, as only one house was recorded in 1860. In 1879 the town was renamed Perrytown in honor of Governor Madison
I,:Starke Perry, and later shortened to, Perry. The historic Taylor County Courthouse was completed in 1907 at a cost of
$54,000. It was in use until 1969.

from the late Sam Register. --
Except for changes in occupancy, little hais'
changed in "down-town" Perry since I was a boy. :-:
We do have a "new" courthouse in lieu of the one.I
grew up with. And, there is a vacant space on thi,,
block on the east side on the courthouse. At differentP-;
times, the building there housed Jenkins Furnituwre,:;
Store and Jackson's Furniture Store. I think theoj.
building there burned. Doubtless there were other:o'
occupants from time to time, but I don't remember

of the founder, at the corner of South Jefferson aid'."
East Green Streets; O'Quinn's, at the corner of North;,
Jefferson and East Main Streets; and Culpepper,-
Lee's, about half way between the others, and facing:
the courthouse, on North Jefferson Street. :::
At various times, I worked at all three drug stores I::"
all of which had soda fountains which dispensed "
"soft drinks" (hand mixed), snacks, et&.-
"Bloodworth's" still does. Mostly, however, I workledll
for Culpepper-Lee, being hired when about in thd

school nights and all day 'till midnight on Saturda'y,3
at which time the fountain was closed and we spent,,
another hour or two washing it down and cleani4t
up. The three drug stores were open for business 1
a rotating basis on Sundays. -i
The reason for such hours was that business a,14
social life in and around Perry revolved around&
"downtown Perry." On Saturdays, practically
everyone came to town to shop, visit, attend th
movies, socialize, etc. They came early and stayed'^
late. And the other merchants, including Fuzzy's-'
Barber Shop, kept like hours except most did close
on Sunday, other than the drug stores, as heretofore
mentioned, and Harry Mantzanas' El Dorado Cafe,
which never closed.
Drive-through windows were unknown back then,
but the drug stores offered "curb service." People-
"sutially ladies, would driVe jout front, cut the ignition
on-their hand-cranked "Model T's," honk their horns .
and someone from the drug store (usually the "soda. 1
skeet") would come out to take the orders, wh
ranged all the way from a free glass of water and i
a two-cent postage stamp, to a five-cent drink or
something out of the drug department. The custonrri-
having been. served, the "soda jerker" was. agafieJ

According to 2006 figures
Florida still tops for fishing
By: Bob Wattendorf
W Florida Fish
S & Wildlife Conservation Commission
Florida cannot be beat as the
: No. 1 place to cast a line, pitch a
lure or lInd a lunker. No tall
fisher's tae here this title has
been earne$, according to a survey
by the GU;.-Census Bureau.
SEvery i; years the Census
Burau conducts the "National
Survey ofFishing, Hunting and
Wildlife- sociated Recreation."
This sury'y is the gold standard
for comparing outdoor recreational
activities;[.tween the states. Once
again it' 'es that Florida is the
number-,i fishing destination,
according tothe 2006 results.
S The facts:tell where anglers go
for the best fishing opportunities.
Florida provided 46.3 million days
of recreational fishing in 2006
versus 41.1 million days in Texas,
the second-highest state. Of
fishing days spent in Florida, 4.8
million days were by tourists
(nonresidents), while Wisconsin,
the second-highest state for tourist
days, provided 3.8 million days. In
terms of nonresident anglers,
Florida is also number one with
885,000, versus No. 2 North
Carolina with less than half that at
But the story does not end there.
Overall Florida again ranked first
in number of fishing participants
age 16 and older with 2.77
million.' Runner-up Texas had
2.53 million participants.
However, in 2001 Florida had
3.10 million anglers, so there has
been a decline of approximately 11
percent over five years, according
to these estimates.
If you look at the decline as a
percentage of the population,
which has been rapidly increasing,
the percent decline is a little more
dramatic. In 2001, national rates
were 16 percent, and in Florida 17
percent of the population fished.
Those rates dropped to 13 percent
nationally and to 14 percent in the
Sunshine State in 2006. On the
positive side, the number of
'fishing days per angler has
increased nationally, with the
average angler fishing 17 days out
of the year in 2006.
Anglers in Florida spent $4.4
billion in 2006, allowing Florida
to claim another No. 1 spot as the
place where anglers spend the
most money. The Lone Star
State was second-best with $4.3
billion spent on fishing.
Recreational; fishing dollars helped
to support 75,068 jobs in Florida,
again making it No. 1, with Texas
trailing behind with 58,938 jobs.
This economic trend is great news
for Florida, partially because state
and local taxes from the sale of
fishing-related goods and services
generated $441 million for general
In spite of thq national
estimates of fishing participation
for all U.S. anglers (does not
include foreign anglers) over 16
years of age decreasing, actual
fishing license sales for both
freshwater and saltwater have
increased in Florida. From 2001-
02, with -1,070,577 licenses sold
to 2006-07. with 1,188,092, there
was an increase of 11 percent in
*sales of saltwater licenses.
Freshwater license sales increased,
from 587,413 sold in 2001-02 to
630,078 in 2006-07, showing an
increase of 7 percent. Although
not enough to keep pace with the
"population increase, it is certainly
better than competing states.
In calendar year 2006. the
National Survey estimated 2.77
million anglers fished in Florida,
and during fiscal year 2006-07
(July 1 to June 30), 1.55 million
fishing licenses were sold. This
discrepancy is partially the result
of seniors (age 65 and older),
resident saltwater shoreline anglers
and several other groups, including
those fishing from licensed
saltwater piers or charter boats,
being exempt from licensing.

response after a loved one's death,

death can be overwhelming,

important and a group setting can
bring individuals together with
others who have, experienced the
similar situation," Robinson said.

individual situations. "

'3:10 to Yuma' returns to
station on [
While "3:10 to Yuma" has been mostly overlooked so
far this award season, I stand firm with my declaration
two weeks ago placing it at number two on my list of the
top movies of 2007.
The film, a remake of the 1957 Western of the same
iname, was released on DVD and Blu-Ray Tuesday.
I still have not seen the original movie, so I can't
compare the two, but I will say with some confidence
that this is the best Western to come out of Hollywood in
At the start of the movie, we are introduced to our two
-main characters one at a time. First is Dan Evans
-(Christian Bale), a struggling rancher who lost a foot in
-the Civil War and is trying desperately to support his
wife and two children, one of whom'is sickly and needs
medicine. Adding to his troubles is the fact that he owes
money to a local thug who wants his land so he can sell
'it to the railroad for a hefty profit.
Just about at the end of
his rope, Dan has lost the
respect of his wife and
older son, not to mention
While trying to round
up his cattle, Dan and his
;-sons come across a stage- a
coach robbery in
with brutal efficiency by
famed outlaw Ben Wade
Ben and his gang are
wanted for 22 robberies
totaling more than
$400,000, earning the ire
of the railroad and fear
from just about everyone
7 se. 4,s Bso uen ruthless as
*-eisa buea yt sone ct oa
dime store novels read by
uDan's son William.
Dan and Ben's paths
-cross again when Ben is
captured- while Dan is
trying to hock his wife's
jewelry to give himself
more time to save his
-ranch. Dan is hooked by a
offer of $200 to anyone
who helps escort Ben to
the neighboring town of Contention to catch the titular
--3:10 to Yuma to prison. Ben's gang, however, is not
going to stop until they have their boss back.
What follows is a story less about an outlaw gang
versus a lawful posse and more about two very unlikely
men thrown together only to find out that there are
similarities between them, similarities that scare both of
Crowe, despite his tendency to throw cell phones (no,
Russell, we will never forget), is arguably one of the
most versatile actors working today. In "3:10 to Yuma,"
:he truly gets the character of Ben Wade, a man who will
kill without a drop of remorse, but will also spend hours
staring at an eagle so he can sketch it properly. He is a
man who has surrounded himself with. men ruthless as
he is, but not one that can hold a decent conversation.
Perhaps that's why he develops a connection--bond
would be too strong a word--with Dan on their way to
Contention. That's not to say he wouldn't kill Dan 'if it
?,became necessary, but he would just prefer it didn't
become a necessity.
As for Dan, he is a man desperately trying to keep his
family 'together, both financially and emotionally. He is
disgusted both by Ben's ruthlessness as well as the fact
that while he himself struggles day-to-day living an
honest life, the outlaw flourishes as he commits every
sin in the book.
While Crowe is known for his intense acting, here he
brings a sense of calm to his performance, drawing out
the multiple layers of his character. Instead, it is Bale as
Dan who brings a fiery intensity to his portrayal. As we
learn more about Dan, we realize that the money may
have been the least of his reasons to acoept the job.
The film is truly about these two men, and how
meeting the other will forever affect them. While there
are plenty of gunfights to sate the action fans, it is really
the verbal, and sometimes silent, interactions between
Dan and Ben that make this film one to remember.
But these aren't the only good performances in the
film. Ben Foster ("X-Men: The Last Stand" and "Alpha
Dog") gives us Charlie
Prince, Ben's second in
command and a man
whose devotion to Ben
is equaled only by his
Logan Lerman ("The
Number 23," "Hoot") is
Dan's son, William, a
teenager who has lost
all respect for his
father. He walks the
fine line of fascination
and adulation when it
comes to the outlaw
Ben, but at the very
least he sees the man as
someone he can
aThe always great
Peter Fonda plays the
aging bounty hunter
Byron McElroy, who
guides the rest of the
posse on their way to
is the town doctor who
comes along to look
after a wounded
McElroy. He brings the
same mixture of naivete and youthful wonder of a man
outside his element as he did in the tragically short-lived
"'Firefly" television series.
I have learned over the years to credit a well-acted
film not only to the actors involved but also to the
director. In this case, Mangold makes the best of
everything he has for his follow-up to the critically-
praised "Walk the Line." In that film, he directed
Joaquin Phoenix to an Oscar nomination and Reese
Witherspoon to a win.
This time around, I wouldn't be surprised if either lead
picks up a nod, as well as Foster for best supporting
actor. Personally, I think Bale is due, but the current
buzz is that he will probably get the nomination for
"Rescue Dawn," which was released earlier this year.
"3:10 to Yuma" is not just a good Western, it is an
excellent film. Fans of the genre should love it, and
anyone looking for a good film would do well not to
miss it. It is rated R for violence and some language.
The DVD includes a 21-minute "making of"
documentary, two featurettes, six deleted scenes and
audio commentary with director Mangold.
