A small section of the message

"All of us want to have
recreation. Our goal now is to

not here to do away with
recreation," Feagle said.
Commissioner Malcolm Page
said he would like to see the
group "come to an agreement on if
recreation will be run by the city,
by the county or jointly."
"I think the best thing would be
for this small group to work
together and come back with
recommendations for. us. Without
that, I feel we'd just be spinning
our wheels," Patterson. said.
S"First, the county needs to
decide if you can afford to build ,
a sports complex," Feagle said.
"I am committed to building
the sports complex. What we have
done is stretch'our construction.
No one has the money...the
question facing us is where are we
going to get it?" Gunter said.
Audience member Bish Clark
suggested that all three boards--:
city, county and school--review
their respective current recreation
facilities and consider enhancing
those' facilities to meet the needs -
of the community.
"I'd like someone to prove (to
me) why we can't use our existing
facilities. To have a community'
built'arounid recreation...to have
fields close by and to utilize those
fields: \Ve can better utilize hat
we've got now instead of building
something out of town and not
maintaining what we have now,"
Clark said.
"The need for fields is huge.
The need for our kids is huge. Wel

drop that. There are only la few

fields (we have now) are rundown
and ragged. The complex is what
we need. to, do to fix them,"
volunteer coach Bruce Ratliff said.
"We are knee-deep in the
complex already. I would much
rather'have a half-cents sales.tax
instead of higher prpeyty .taxes,"-
he added. '
"We're not knee-deep in.the

deep," Gunter said.

"We have launched a missile

said of the sports complex,
underscoring his desire to move
forward with formulating a plan
on dealing with recreation as a

they're all valid. We need to lay

If an additional one-half cent discretionary sales surtax is approved by
voters, it could generate up to $900,000 annually for recreation here.
The estimate is based on the amount generated' by a one-cent
discretionary sales surtax enacted in the fiscal year 2004, which was
"just short of $1.8 million," County Finance Director-Tammy Tayior
said Tuesday.
That additional one-cent surtax was added to cover construction costs
of Taylor County's new hospital.
For now, the issue of an additional one-half cent tax is in the planning
stages as the county commission, city council and school board move
toward combining all respective recreation endeavors throughout Taylor

"Meet Barbara"
S Barbara is like the rest of us...busy,
always going to make time for "me," but
never quite getting around to it. Knowing
that regular exercise is a 'necessity" to
good health, but then there's always
tomorrow...isn't there?
Barbara is to be commended and the
following is her testimony of a lifestyle
I came to the realization about a year
ago that if I was not going to take care of me...no one else was going
to either. 'I am important' became important. How much better I feel
a year later cannot even be put into enough words. Yes, weight loss
for me was important, but not my sole motivating factor. I wanted to
feel better inside and out. To date, I have lost 47 inches and 78 pounds
by eating healthier, practicing regular exercise, and drinking wer,
lots of it! My blood pressure is down, my joints are more flexible from
stiff arthritis and even my GI reflux is much improved. I feel 100%
I challenge you, our community, to join me on the quest for good
health we all desire, no matter what our age. Find a friend, a relative,
a' buddy or support system to help you stick with it, when you just
don't feel like going. For me, my mom was my supporter and I thank
her for always being there. The Lord is my #1 strength ih this endeavor.
As always, He is there to encourage me to. 'press on.' Being
overweight, it was important for me to be in.a comfortable, friendly
and supportive environment. At New Dimensions, there was such a
range of people...all ages and sizes, that it was not intimidating at all.
If I can do it, you can do it too! Join with me this year to truly make it
a happy and healthy New Year!

offense throughout the game.
Taylor County needed the win
following last Tuesday's 66-55
district road loss to East Gadsden.
Against the Quincy team, the
Bulldogs started out cold falling
behind 16-0 and 38-20 at the half.
In the third period, East Gadsden's
lead swelled to 24 points before
the Bulldogs rallied in the final
period to get within 11.
Powell scored 19 of his team-
high 24 points in the second half
as Ellis directed an improved
press-break that saw Taylor
County out-score East Gadsden
33-28 after intermission.
"We went into the locker room
down 18 and shooting maybe 15
percent," TCHS Head Coach John
Davies said.

But Davies added that he was
proud of his team for keeping their
heads up and battling back in the
second half.
"We fell short this time but
that's only because we got down
into such a big hole at the start,"
he said.
Davies said a priority since the
New Year has been converting
transition backets.
"Practices have been much
more high speed with emphasis on
making every lay-up on a full
sprint. This was evident Friday
night (against Wakulla) as we
turned our steals into a bunch of
brackets," he said.
The Bulldogs were slated to
host a pair of district games this
week -- Florida High on Tuesday
and Madison Friday -- before
traveling to FAMU High

Why did the BCFCU employees volunteer over 7000hours to the community in 2004?
Because we are "Community Minded"

BCFCU membership is open to all who live, work, attend school,or worship in Taylor County.
BCFCU not only meets your checking, savings, loans, real estate, credit card, and home banking
needs, we do it for less than our competitors. Plus we provide quality service.

Ifyour money's in a bank, the profits on the money go to stockholders. At a credit union,
profits are returned to members. This explains why we pay more on savings and you pay less
on loans. Yu can visit us at 1825 S.Jefferson Street, call us at 223-7100, or visit our web site

Our employees give back to the community by volunteering over 7000 hours in 2004.
