Tullos recommends that

"If you use bottled water, know
where it came from," he said.
"Otherwise, water should be boiled

Tullos added that any resident in

_Hickory Mound to close soon
Access to the impoundment on
the Hickory Mound Unit of the
Big Bend Wildlife Management
SArea (WMA) located in Taylor
SCounty will be closed, beginning
as early as mid-April, for
improvements to the dike,
according to Florida Fish. and
SCommission (FWC) officials.
"The reconstruction of the
impoundment dike is designed to
Sallow this structure to % withstand a
'50-year storm event by drastically
reducing the number of breaches
that have occurred inthe past,"
..explained David Nicholson,
'District Biologist at the FWC Big
Bend Field Office in Perry.'
-.The major portions of the
construction project will include
Sthe installation, of two 1,000-foot
Concrete geoweb spillways, four 5'
S by 5' box culverts, one aluminum
Water control structure, and the
-placement of approximately 8,672
-,tons of rip-rap material to
reinforce the dike in areas that
have. been susceptible to storm
erosion in the past.
These upgrades will also allow
biologists to have better control
over the flow of water into and out
of the impoundment, allowing
FWC staff to better manage for
waterfowl, and other wildlife
:species. This increased
ifrtanagement ability should allow
for higher quality recreational
opportunities in the future,"

Sto close some roads on the WMA
Beginning as early as mid-April.
The roads will be closed for
approximately six months. These
roads will include portions of
: Coker Road (south from the
: junction of Swartz Tram), Cow
:Creek Grade (south from the
Junction of Swartz Tram), and
Swartz Tram (between Coker Road
and Cow Creek Grade) Nicholson
"The actual date of the closure is
unknown," Nicholson said. "We
don't want to close access to the
area until the contractor is on-site,
which is dependent on weather and
contract legalities. Once we get a
firm.date, we will publicize that.
S"Locked gates will be installed
to prohibit unauthorized vehicles
from entering the area. These road
closures will prohibit an\!,
vehicularr access to the Hicikor)
Mound Impoundment. Anyone
wanting to access the western
portion of the Hickory Mound
Unit must do so by entering from
County Road 14. Anyone wanting
access to the eastern portion of the
Hickory Mound Unit must do so
by entering the area via Cow
Creek Grade," Nicholson
These road closures will be
necessary to ensure the security of
the contractors' equipment and for
.the general safety of the public.
The dike, which also serves as the
perimeter rroad around the.
impoundrihint, will be breached in
numerous points throughout the
project making it impassable by
foot or vehicles, creating a
potential safety hazard. It should
also be noted that during active

would eventually be required.
The first sunrise I recall, however, was%
not required. If was optional. I was with"al
group of friends at a then-nondescript;
beach in Florida, called Navarre. No one
had heard of it until the 70s when "Jaws"
was filmed off the coastline. -Until then, it
was nothing more than a handful of
houses--one of which belonged to a
friend's family; .Every summer, 10 of us
made a pilgrimage to that beach under
the watchful eyes of the parents-in-charge.
What fun we had. One of our really fun
friends suggested that on the final night of
our stay, we should sleep on the beach so
we could wake up to the sunrise.
Thought, "My father will be so pleased."
In retrospect, I'm thinking: those parents
let us sleep on the beach? But it was a
remote beach, you see; and nobody killed
anybody then without a good reason.
Shortly after midnight, we packed our
towels and blankets, and trekked over the
dunes to. prepare for the sunrise. I don't
remember falling asleep until someone
woke me up to say that the sun was
rising. I sat straight up and found myself
surrounded by the biggest sun I had ever.
seen. It stretched from one side of the
universe. to the other without any
I blinked and blinked, and watched the
sun take possession of the water and the
beach, splashing new colors on both. And
I remember, thinking to myself, "This is
And then, with a suddenness which was
disarming', the morning show started to
blend inwith the clouds and the sky,' as
the sun cast an overall pink around us. We
ate doughnuts and drank milk.
And we felt wretched.
We had to' scale those sand dunes, drag
blankets, take sheets off beds at the
beach house, pack up groceries, clothes,
41 bottles of shampoo and suntan lotion,
and load into a station wagon for a three-
hour drive home. WVe sang; we talked; it
never occurred to us to sleep.
We were individually dropped off at our
homes;, with loud goodbyes and fabulous
memories. But I remember sitting down
and saying'to my father, "I think I may cry."
He looked alarmed and asked why. "I
saw the sunrise this morning," I said.
"It's beautiful, isn't it?" he added.
"But I'm so exhausted. I saw 3 a.m.,
He shook his head at me again, and he
did a lot of that, as I recall.
Then he and I agreed that I never had to
see a sunset again, if I didn't want to.
I felt much better, and immediately
entered the Land iof Sleep where I am--to
this day-- so very comfortable.
I forced myself to be quiet the other
morning. "Ten minutes," I told myself,
with the windows flung open.
And the birds sang to me. ,
These birds love Daylight Savings Time, I
think, or is it that I was previously asleep
when they were singing?
Anyway, they seem to start of the day
off happy, which makes them unique
among other living creatures.
In my 10 minutes, I heard a mourning
dove, I believe, making a four-count call
every 20 seconds. In between were the
cycles of the automatic dishwasher
downstairs, whirring wafer and detergent
over a load of well-used dishes.
It became an orchestra of sorts, with
woodwindish dove sounds, matched by
the "strings" of the. dishwasher and
punctuated by the barks of neighborhood
I sat in awe, and thought perhaps that
my father would be proud of me.
My father believed that for a day to go
well, you should get up long before sun
does and be prepared for it. He was
bathed and shaved before dawn, with
morning newspaper and coffee in hand.
And he often sat outside, as the sun rose
behind our house, topping the tall pine
trees and backlighting the landscape.
There before him were birds, plenty of
birds. Song birds. Cardinals.
Mockingbirds. Blue birds. Blue jays.
I think what my father liked most about
the morning was the quiet. Once the two
women at his house emerged from
bedrooms, quiet was scarce. He couldn't
have stood that kind of clamor much
So he not only got up early to meet the
sun, but to brace himself for whatever
nonsense might be thrown at him at
And even though I suspect that he didn't
want company at the earliest hours of the
day, he often suggested that we should
make a point to occasionally see- the sun
"I've seen the sun rise," said Mother,
refusing his invitation.
"I haven't," I said.
They both looked at me and then each
other. Mother asked, ."You've .never seen
the sun rise?"
"No, but I've seen plenty of sunsets," I
gave as my defense.
Suddenly, they realized what a shallow
life I had lived.
"It's just the flipside of a sunset," I
suggested, and they shook their heads at
their teenage child. "I can't believe you've
lived this long and never seen a sunrise,"
my father said, definitely disappointed.
"I will," I said confidently, for I knew it

Williams for all the wonderful
work she does'in our community.
We did noi get to the recognition
program for her, but we want her
to know how much we love her
and appreciate her beautiful smile,
and her helpful ways. We all love
to hear her recite those special
poems like the one she did for
New Brooklyn's Homecoming
about "Some Folk." No one can
do them quite like she can.
During the times when we were
ill, she would call often, and she
even took the time and wrote out a
poem of inspiration and sent it to
me in the mail. She was not able'
to come to see us, but she made
sure we knew she was praying for
us by her calls and her cards. She
inspired me by this Christian
example of caring for others. This
is something she has exemplified
in her life. We thank God for
blessing our community with
Mrs. B. D. Williams. She and
many other senior citizens of this
community are true gifts to us. I
am thankful we are taking time to
say so while they are still here
