Brother faces misdemeanor firearm charge

State attorney clears Walter Rowell

After months of investigating the
June 16 incident at former County
Commissioner Walter Rowell's
Shady Grove home, the Taylor
County State Attorney's Office has
decided not to bring charges
against him.
Instead, a misdemeanor charge

of careless display of a firearm in
the presence of people has been
levied against Rowell's brother,
Dale, for shooting in the air to
scare people away from a nearby
The investigation began when
Taylor County Sheriff's Office

(TCSO) dispatch received a call
concerning shots being fired in a
Shady Grove neighborhood.
Officers with TCSO, Perry
Police Department and Florida
Highway Patrol answered the call.
According to reports filed by the
officers, the incident began when

Rowell allegedly called a friend of
his estranged daughter-in-law (who
was out of town), saying that if the
daughter-in-law wanted anything
out of her former residence, she
had two hours to get it.
The friend and .two others then
went to the residence and retrieved

baby clothes and a crib, reports-
"As they were getting ready :to
leave the residence, a Dodge pick-
up drove down Morris Steen Road,
and then turned around in Rowell's
driveway. When they left the-
residence, a white Ford kingcab
truck attempted to cut them off.,
They saw a flash and heard guiif
shots. :-
"The witness said the white ForAd-
truck started chasing them, with an
occupant firing gunshots at them
One of the victims made it to her
Greenville residence, where she
notified TCSO.
Another witness in the area at the
time, informed law enforcement

Referees needed at city-county

Referees were needed as
recreation talks between the city
and county grew heated Thursday
night. Jan. 27.
The city recreation department
came under fire from parents
questioning the lack of upkeep at
city fields, while the county fielded
questions regarding its
commitment to building a new
sports complex here.
The meeting came just two days
after the city council (with a 3-2
vote) rejected a draft proposal
submitted by the county to take
over recreation operations for the
entire community.
"I thought the purpose of this
committee was to work options
(between the city and county). It
seemed to me. once we got the
document, all -it talked about was
the county taking over recreation.
It looked like something was trying
to be forced on the city; what
happened the other night (the "no"
vote) was because I didn't want to
agree to something without
working our options." Mayor Pam
Feagle said, addressing the joint
Recreation Committee composed
of herself. Councilwoman Emily
Kelring, County Commission
Chairman Daryll Gunter and
Commissioner Jack Brown.

Pam Feagle

"In January 2002. the city and
county commission first met to talk
about working together on
recreation. I know up until this
point the city has pretty much gone
it alone, but we (the county) want
to do our fair share. If there is
going to be joint recreation, there
needs to be an (agreement) in
writing. That's why the proposal
says 'draft'...it's a talking point
paper." Brown said.

Daryll Gunter
"Why (build) a sports complex?
To supplement the current facilities
we haye' It has been wanted as far
as being able to hosi tournaments
for baseball, softball and soccer.
Not only is it a win-win for the
community as far as sports go. but
also as an economic development
tool. A sports complex is a quality
of life thing. If a business is
looking to locate to an area, a good
sports facility is likely to have an
impact," Brown said.
"The county does not want to
create a separate sports
department. (Former county
commissioner) Johnny Hankerson
first introduced the idea of building
a sports complex in 1999. It has
been a six- ear process to get
%here we are today. I've gone
through all the county commission

minutes: we ha\c. looked at eight
different locations for the complex
and have gotten a lot of public
input. The Highway 19 North site
was chosen in 2001 and it took
until July 2004 to get all the
permitting done. North 19 is where
the Ta lor County Sports Complex
\%ill be built. The Board of County
Commissioners has said numerous
times that is where the sports
complex will be." he continued.
"My understanding was that the
county didn't have $4 million to
build the sports complex." Feagle
"Our intent was never to shut
down the fields the City of Perry
has. One option was for the counts.
to take over recreation as a whole.
There is no hidden agenda. We are
timing to figure out hc\w to \work
with the city council. We know we
have $1.3 million for the sports
complex and are paring down what
we will be able to do with the
money we have this year." Brow n
"What options did the citl come
up with?" Gunter asked, with no
"The city has no options to
entertain?" he asked again.
"No. the document was throw n
out." Kering said.

Emily Ketring

Jack Brown


"The whole purpose of this
committee is to work optidois'
together. Tonight is the first time
you've said you would build the
sports complex," Feagle said.
"Why would the city not want -
the county to run recreation?'"
Gunter said.
"Right now there is iio
duplication of (recreatiiin)
services. What I'm hearing is thFi
you want to..."Feagle said.

Midweek Muddle

La cucaracha

I was casually pushing my grocery cart
down the detergent aisle when I noticed-
various insect sprays and one product in
particular which declared that it was "new
and improved."
What caught my eye was not the silver
packaging, but the Spanish advertising. I
turned the box over to see if the English
side just hadn't found.the light of day, but-
both sides were dominated by, Spanish
That's when I saw it. "La Cucaracha."
When ,I was young and foolish, I took
Spanish from a woman who 'was
contagiously enthusiastic about the
language. She had charts and, songs, and
clothes which told of her allegiance to
Spain. Mrs. ,Hartley was politely called
"unique" by other adults, but I always'
found her to be refreshing. If'you're going
,to teach, ypu' ought to be passionate
about it,, and' she w-as.
She waltzed through class singing songs
'in Spanish, addressed all her students with
genuine international joy, .and even
chastised them in Spanish. I-remember a,
particularly hopeless bby who turned to

admonition to ask, "What did she say was
gonna happen to me?"

either, so i. remained mute--a skill I
mastered only briefly, and .have had
difficulty passing along to either' of my
At this time in the Wonder Years
segment of my life, Speedy Gonzales was
the most influential Hispanic mouse
around. Regardless of your age or dignity,
you had tb love Speedy Gonzales. And
Mrs. Hartley, recognizing his sex appeal,
determined that the class should. learn to
write and sing all three verses of "La
Cucaracha," which was, of course,
Speedy's theme song.
So this weekend, in the grocery store, I
stood before the insecticides and tried to
remember the verses to "La Cucaracha."
"....porque le falta, porque no tiene...." I
was saying to myself when someone in a
corporate vest stopped me.
"Do you need some help?" she asked.
"No, I'm just playing," I said, motioning
for her to move on as I tried to finish the
verse, "una pata para andar...."
She eyed me curiously, as people did
Mrs. ,Hartley throughout her teaching
career.' Then the clerk left me alone with
the roach traps and a Spanish message to
all the people with a cucaracha in their
house. I had to wonder: given the people
in our country who struggle with simple
English (and I include myself in that


category), do we fully expect them to
understand the advertising for this
product? Yes, there ias a picture of a
roach so even illiteracy wasn't a big
hurdle, but if you want to know how many
traps are in the box, you must speak the
language. That's when I began counting in
Spanish, and this was difficult, for I took
few years of French but only one semester
Sof Spanish.
That's when the manager came by.
"Do youpneed help?" he said.
No, I said, putting the product back.
,"I was just re-living my past." He smiled
and surely wondered what.roaches had to
do with my past.
Thoughts of Speedy and Mrs. Hartley and
cucarachas. swirled in my head as I
returned to the office. Our classified
advertising manager was in the midst of a
telephone call which had furrowed his
brow. He put the caller on hold. "She
wants to speak to someone in Spanish,"
he said.
"Thii is not the United Nations," I told
him. "It's a small newspaper.' Give her to
the publisher-he took Spanish in college. I
can't even remember the, three verses of
'La Cucaracha.'"
"I'm not talking to her," the.publisher
said; sometimes he's difficult that way.
SVe recommended another avenue for the
caller, but I couldn't move on without
recalling the night I was working late at
this very same newspaper, and the phone
rang. I answered with "Perry Newspapers,"
and the, caller said, "Yes, I want two beef
burritos,' a soft taco, two orders of....."
andI interrupted.
"This'.is the newspaper," I said. "You
have the wrong number."
"I thought this was Taco Time," said she.
"It's the Taco Times," said I, "a regional
abbreviation of Taylor and County which I
would have never thought of, but I have
inherited....we don't sell food. We sell
newspapers. I'm sorry for the confusion."
She was here with her husband, who
was installing the gas pipeline, and said
she would share the story with others
who would surely be calling. "We've been
wanting tacos all day long," she said.
Another friend has noticed
advertisements for this chain of taco
restaurants, Taco Time, on a football
scoreboard. If you call them, you can get'
a burrito without anybody trying to sell
you a newspaper subscription.
So maybe they thought that anyone who
naimes'a newspaper Taco, would logically
have someone else who speaks Spanish
on its staff.
And a: few cucarachas?
Not.us.: We even killed Speedy Gonzalez.

'Case not prosecutable'

Continued from page 1
that he witnessed someone in one
truck, firing at the other.
When officers, arrived at
Walter's home, they report that he
brought a gun onto his porch
initially, but refused for almost
two hours to surrender himself--at
one point, making the statement
that "somebody's going to die
Rowell denied this in a written
statement for TCSO at the time of
the incident, saying that he had
been asleep when he was "woke-
up by my dogs barking at
something in the back yard."'
Rowell said he crept outside
with his shotgun and attempted to
slip out the front door to see who
was there, according,to his sworn
"When I realized it was law
enforcement officers, I carried my
gun back to my bedroom and went
to the door and-asked them what
they wanted.
"I invited the officers in or on
the porch to talk, holding my
hands in the air, but officers
jumped up on the porch and came
running toward me waving pistols
and shouting," Rowell added.
Almost two hours later, Taylor
County SheriffL. E. "Bummy"
Williams and Lf. Audie Towles
arrived and defused the situation.
No charges have ever been
levied against Walter.
Phelps said Thursday that FDLE
transcripts of tapes recording the
incident show,'that as law
enforcement surrounded Rowell's
home and officers were
approaching, Rowell did
walk onto his front porch,

standing under an overhead light.
"In the recording," said Phelps,
"you hear (former Deputy) Scott
(Albritton) yell 'gun!'--which is a
typical warning to his fellow'
officers that a gun was present.
You then hear running. Rowell
yelled who's out there?, but no
one answered, because officers
didn't have time to identify
"They later identified themselves
as law enforcement officers and
told him to lay down, but Walter
felt he had not done anything
wrong and refused to do so.
"The officers felt the situation
was not secure enough to approach
the house because they knew there
was a gun somewhere because
they had already seen it," he added.
Phelps said the case is simply
not prosecutable. ... 1
"Both sides are arguable," he
"Were the officers there legally?
Yes," Phelps said.
"Did Walter have to come out
and lay on the dirt? No.
"Did Walter actually do
anything wrong? No.
"The whole thing comes down



to what happened during those
first few seconds. We would have
to prove criminal intent on
Walter's part.
"The officers arrived at the
house. Walter was standing under
a bright light, unable to see who
was in his yard. He did,
admittedly, have a gun, but
officers reacted when they saw it
and did not identify themselves

"We would have to prove malice
on Walter's part, during that time,
and we simply can't do it.
"Dale, on the other hand,
admitted that he did the shooting-
in-the-air to scare thbse people off.
This is a dangerous thing,to do,
because at some point, that bullet
is going to come down with the
,possibility of hitting someone.
That's why we decided to bring
misdemeanor charges against
him," Phelps added.
When, contacted Tuesday,
Rowell refused comment, except
to say that his family had retained
an attorney. j
Through a spokesman, Williams
also refused to comment on the

For further negotiations

combined departments, but maybe
under a joint board. The (draft)
document being set aside doesn't
bother me one bit. But I can say
as a professional planner, that we
have to have something in
writing," Brown said.
"I am opposed to the sports
complex* being on North 19. It
will put a lot of poor people at a
disadvantage. You have black
children who will be denied access
to the fields," Feagle said.
S "I want to address that issue
because.I've heard it several times
this week. How do they get here
now? The (ball) fields are already
across Highway 19. The sports
complex is not just for people in
the city limits, but also residents
in Shady Grove, Keaton'
Beach...all across the county,"
Gunter said.
Addressing the pared down
version bf Phase I construction of
the sports complex, County
Engineer Kenneth Dudley said,
"we started looking at what sport
lacked facilities...if we just limit
Sthe scope to the front portion of
the design, we'll put in soccer
fields that can also be used for
S. flag football and practice fields.
The only sport not out there then
is baseball."
"So where is the money coming
from for the sports complex?"
Feagle said.
"That's a question for the board
of county commissioners. We
have asked the city if it wants to
Sparticipate.;,if not, we'll come up ,
:with that money. We are going
Forward with the sports complex,"
Brown reiterated.
"I think we can build this .
section--which will include a
paved parking lot for 190
. vehicles, three regulation soccer
fields...that immediately helps
soccer. We'll put in two picnic
Stables, a children's :
Splayground...right now the city
doesn't have facilities for flag'
football...these fields could be
used for that...and I think we can
do it for $1.3 million r ,
County Manager ` udy''
Humphries said.
Dudley added that the'Rails to
Trails program will tie-in all.
downtown city parks to th6e.I
sports complex with pedestrian
"But besides ballfields and
soccer fields, we also have to
address boat ramps, recreation
facilities at Steinhatchee, Shady
Grove...recreation all around the
county. Unless we do a combined
(recreation) department we would
be duplicating services," Brown, '
"When are we going to upgrade
the baseball facilities in this
county? What.is being done on,
upgrading the current facilities?
Right now we have 29 teams ,
sharing fohr fields,"' longtime
coach Reggie Wentworth asked '
the committee.
"The city has $5 million
(planned) in capital.
improvements,. but I didn't see
any baseball field:. improvements
in the plan. What we don't want
to do is take away money and
piece it out to baseball fields,"
, Brown said. .,
'Then how do all these other
cities around us get sport
complexes built?" Wentworth
"Those cities are all maxed out
at 10 mils 'and qualify for more
grants.We're not at 10 mils and
no one here wants to raise taxes,"
Gunter said.
"Then you have to ask yourself
if you want to fill up ballfields or
the booking desk," Wentworth
"I'm the first to say the city has,
failed to offer minimum majority
satisfaction. But our reserves are
already allocated to extend sewer
lines and for the new spray field,"
Ketring said.
"We're trying to put together
long-range plans to meet the
needs of all recreation," Brown
said. turning to Feagle and asking
"somebody from the city to
come up with a written draft for ,
us to consider."
"I thought that's why we were
here, to talk about recreation," she
"We're listening and asking for
input. We're not here to argue, but

we want to find common ground,"
Brown said. "That's why we need
a joint effort document saying
what the city-county will and will
not do. We need to put pen to
'paper...but, working together does
;iOt i.lean taking money raised for

the sports complex and upgrading
city facilities," he continued.
"Frankly, I'm taken aback that
the (draft) document was made
into something divisive because
it's a draft...if you wanted to take
it and change every place that says
'county' to 'city,' I wouldn't have
problem with it...it's a place to
start. No one ever said the sports
complex would replace city fields.
But so far, your only option is
'you give us our money.' We are
not here to debate the sports
complex. We've already voted and
are moving forward with it. The
city council never came to us and
said think about working together.
We read in the newspaper that the
city wanted out of recreation,"
Brown said.
Feagle restated her position that
she would like to see the city and
county working together and
suggested that "as a start, let the
city continue to run recreation.
Let's pool our resources and see
how we can run the sports
complex and our fields."
"That still doesn't address
'countywide recreation," Brown
Commissioner Clay Bethea,
who was in attendance as an
audience member, said, "I was
quoted as saying if you are going
to increase recreation, you're going
to have to fund it. Something has
to change in recreation. Parents
are going to have to'pick up more.
But this (interlocal agreement)
document has got to be done
before we can do anything else."

"I think this document was
viewed emotionally and not
looked at as a draft. It is used in a
lot of cities and counties and it
works," Brown said.
"I didn't come here tonight for
the bashing I've gotten. Mr.
Gunter, you have taken some
cheap shots at the city," Feagle

6Mr. Gunter,

--Mayor Pam Feagle

At that point, Brown--who was
named chairman of the recreation
committee--called for a brief-
When the meeting reconvened,
Gunter stated he would like to go
on record as "being deeply
offended by being called a liar by
the city mayor. You heard her,
Jack. This is-not'the way for two
bodies to come together and work
for our children."
"I did not call you a liar...I said
that you need to tell the truth
when you speak," Feagle said of
the conversion which took place

as the three sat at the podium
during the adjournment.
The committee then attempted
to go through the "draft" interlocal
agreement paragraph by paragraph,
with discussion coming to a halt
as Feagle suggested turning the
issue over to County Manager
(Buddy) Humphries and City
Manager Bill Brynes for their
"I'd like to see us turn this over
to them and have them come up
with some options they can bring
back to this committee," she said.
"We can come up with a'plan,
but I don't know if it's one
elected officials will like," Brynes
"Jack brought an option to the
table, which is more than anyone
else did," Gunter said.
"I say we draw a line in the
sand and more forward," Brown
By consensus, the four
representatives turned the issue
over to the two administrators.
Brynes closed the meeting with
one parting comment, "don't
shoot the messenger" he said of
the plan that would be brought
back to them.
Not settled was what direction
the city would take in seeing to
needed repairs and upgrades to its
current facilities.
The recreation department,
which has one adminsitrative, one
admipsitrative assistant and a
three-man maintenance crew, is
repsosible for the upkeep of all

-Bible Answers
Continuedfrom January12 \ hat about the 4th commandment? It does
seem kind of odd to say 9 out of 10 commandments are still binding but
one of them isn't. If God never changes, why would His law change?
(Malachi 3:6) Consider these: The 10 commandments were written in
stone, not on a scroll or cyberspace. Commandment #4 tells us to
rememberr". Nowhere in the Bible does God say that the 7h day of the
week is not holy any more. Jesus said that the Sabbath was made for man
not man for the Sabbath. So enjoy what God has given you. Have a
question hat you would like to have the Bible answer? Please send itto

- :- Goodbqe to
Linda Strickland
Linda was my good friend and I want to let everyone
know what a good friend she was. When she was first
sick, I called her to see how she was and talked to her.
I asked her what was going on--you cannot be sick. I
sent flowers to her, since I was not able to go and visit
her at the hospital. I had had my first grandchild and
was seeing him. Thank God she saw him in pictures
before she left us. When I was on my way to see my
grandson, I called the hospital to talk to Linda but the
nurse said I couldn't talk to her; that there was an
emergency. I realized something bad was happening-
that'was when she went into a coma. I was glad I did
not see Linda suffering. In my mind, I want to remember
Linda happy and with her peculiar strong laugh. She
was:always well-dressed and had her makeup just so.
The last Saturday I worked with Linda, I told her her
hair looked different and that I liked it and asked her
what she did different to it. When I went to the funeral
home, I was afraid to see her. But my good friend,
Jaime, told me you should see her--she looks so good.
So I went and saw her, but I felt like I was dying, too. It
was worse when I saw one of her best friends, Tom.
Linda, you are not with us any more, but I will
remember, you always. I am sure you are with God
because you were an excellent person,'special mother
and a good friend to me and to many others.


Your friend, Cesar Hidalgo

y p

'40 Days' kicks off Saturday; all invited!
The invitation has been extended: "Come Saturday for the inspirational
kick-off event for the 40 Days of Purpose Campaign!" That message,
from Pastor.Larry D. Neal and the congregation of First Presbyterian
Church, includes an overview of the next 40 days.
"We invite you to come for dinner in our fellowship hall this Saturday,
Feb. 5, at 5 p.m. (310 Plantation Road). This time of food and fellowship
will be followed by a kick-off in the sanctuary at 6:15 p.m., including a
motivational life message from Rick Warren (who wrote the book), and
songs of worship especially for this campaign," said Neal.
After Saturday's kick-off, the six-week spiritual growth campaign is
structured to answer the question, "'What on earth am I here for?" Sunday
worship will be devoted to this topic, as will small group Bible studies
being held throughout the community. Those participating will be
presented with a copy of the best-selling book and reminded, "There is no
better investment of your time in this next 40 days. Imagine the impact:
on our community if we were all committed to living out God's purposes
for our lives.".
For more information, or to be included in a small group, please
contact the church office at 584-3826. "But most importantly, just come
and be with us on Saturday," said Neal. "We welcome you as we begin
this great spiritual journey together."

Wilson tells Rotarians

'Foster kids need

Tommy Wilson and Barbara Lytle

Tommy Wilson, Tri-County
Foster Parent Association
president, was the guest speaker at
the Perry Rotary Club's Tuesday,
Jan. 1.8, meeting.
Wilson and the association's
treasurer, .Barbara, Lytle, told
Rotarians of their current and
previous experiences serving as
foster parents.

The association serves some
120 children in foster care in
Taylor, Madison and Jefferson
counties, as well as providing
support for another 180 children
who are currently living in the
homes of relatives.
Wilson told the group that he

became interested in becoming a
foster parent after suffering an
injury in 1995 and meeting a five-
year-old boy who was also in a
wheelchair during his
The boy was a victim of a DUI
crash that killed his parents and
the friendship between the two
spurred Wilson to become an
advocate for children.

The not-for-profit group
currently rents space for its
"Heartland House 2" and meets
once a month in the old Gladys
Morse Elementary School
building, operated by Taylor
County Senior Services.

Wilson told the Rotary Club
that the group is always searching
for clothing, diapers, food, high
chairs, etc. to donate to foster
.parents and wants to establish a
computer lab at the "Heartland
House" for foster children to use.
The group also hopes to
organize field trips for foster kids
in the tri-county area and is in
need of volunteers to sit with thb
foster children during their
monthly meetings.
The contact individuals for the
Tri-County Foster Parents
Association are Tommy Wilson
(838-2815), Barbara Lytle (584-

financial burden? Is daily traffic
congestion creating unnecessary
stress? Want to help save the
environment? Did you'know if

carpooling, vanpooling, bus or
bicycle, you can save hundreds of

reducing the problems of traffic,
congestion and air pollution.
Commuter Services of North
Florida facilitates service that help

commute options.
A resident who. commutes to

miles round trip. According to
AAA, the average cost of driving
a car in the southeast in 2005 is 50
cents per mile, which includes the.
cost of insurance, depreciation,
gas mileage and maintenance.
Based on these figures, if a
resident carpooled with just one
other person, the savings would be
$11.50 per day for each person, or
$2,875 per year (based on a five-
day.work week for 50 weeks).
