Many landowners are familiar
with this pest and the havoc it can
cause. Sound forest management,
.however, can help prevent SPB
outbreaks and damage, as well as
enhance recreation opportunities,
reduce the risk of loss from
wildfires, and increase the
economic potential of forest land.
Listed are tips forestland owners
can use to better protect
themselves from southern pine
Thin dense, overcrowded pine
stands to increase vigor of
remaining trees, make beetle
spread difficult due to wider
spacing and produce higher value
wood products at final harvest.
Prescribe burn to reduce
competing hardwood vegetation
and underbrush beneath pines,
reduce wildfire hazard, and enhance
wildlife and aesthetic value.
Minimize or avoid wounds to
pines during harvesting operations
to reduce the production of pine
odors that attract pine beetles.
Match the site with the ideal
:species of pine. Longleaf and
slash pine are more resistant to
southern pine beetles than other
pine species, such as loblolly and
shortleaf. A forester can helpyou
determine which species, are
appropriate for a given site.
Remove pines weakened by
disease, injury, lightning or other

Bulldogs tangle with Mayo,
Hamilton in kickoff classic
Taylor County High football
fans will get their first look at the
2005, team Thursday when the
Bulldogs travel to Mayo for the
annual kickoff classic.
Taylor County, under first-year
coach Price Harris, will take on
host Mayo-Lafayette in the second
half and Hamilton County in the
third half. Mayo and Hamilton
County will battle in the first half
of the three-team exhibition which'
begins at 7 p.m.
S"I'm anxious to see what we got
and who's going to step up and be
a leader," Harris said.
The Bulldogs open their regular
season next week (Aug. 26) when
Chipley comes to town.
Having to open the 2005 season
without the benefit of spring
practice, Harris said his team still
has a lot of work to do.
"They are getting there but they
still have a long way to go. You
can't knock how hard they've been
working, though," he said.
Price, along with his new
coaching staff, have been busy
installing the "flexbone" offense.
The flexbone is a.variation of the
wishbone offense that utilizes a
fullback and two wingbacks.
Harris said from that initial set,
the Bulldogs will run the inside
veer, options and sweeps but they
will also have a lot of different
formations involving multiple
wideouts and slot players.
But don't expect to see a lot of
Price's offense this Thursday.
"We're still in the learning
stages. We plan to keep it simple
Thursday," he said.
Price said expect to see Marvin
Britt, Shawn Padgett and
Tradelvin Whetsel sharing time at'
fullback while Brokow.ski
Jackson, Tony Powell, Gerald
Walker and Greg Snead should all
see action at the wingbacks.
Calling signals for the Bulldogs
will be Genario McNealy.and
Marquis Ellis while Sebastian
Ingram, Jamar McIntyre and
SJoseph Proenza will share time at
The offensive line should
consist of Cole Revels at tight end
and interior linemen Billy Joe
Wigglesworth, Adam Cook, Cane
Miguel, Drew Southerland and
Taylor County will run a 4-3
defense with Revels and Shane
Bailey playing' the ends and Britt
and Jake Meacham at the tackles.
Sharing time at linebacker will
be Georgie Armstrong, Jackson,
Padgett, Whetsel and
Price said to look for McNealy,
Proenza, Ingram, McIntr re and
Powell in the secondary.

Grammy winner Rhonda Vincent
and The Rage will headline the
'005 Florida Forest Festival, with
two high-energy performances
Saturday, Oct. 22.
Hailed as "The Mandolin
. Mama," Vincent can be seen today
.(Wednesday) on CMT's "Wide
Open Country" along with country
artists Dwight Yoakam, Kathleen
Edwards and Marc Broussard.
The show, which features artists
from a wide variety of alternative
country' and bluegrass, airs at 2
Vincent's latest album, Ragin'
Live, was released earlier this year
and continues to make its mark on
the music :charts. It follows her.
highly acclaimed 2004 album, One
Step Ahead, on Rounder Records.
Vincent began performing with
her parents at age three. The
musical' Vincent family became TV
regulars in Iowa when Rhonda was
five. -A year later the clan took to
the radio air waves over KIRX in
Kirksville, Mo. Then the Vincents
became the "house band" at the
Frontier Jamboree in nearby
Marceline, backing every
bluegrass and country star from
Ernest Tubb to Bill Monroe..
Vincent made her recording
debut as a tot in 1967. Her first solo
single was a 1971 rendition of the
Jimmie Rodgers' classic
"Muleskinner Blues." By 1985, she
had recorded eight albums with her
Dr. Ralph Stanley and Rhonda Vincent in Coeburn, Va. Vincent will headline the 50th annual
Florida Forest Festival. (Photo by Rick Hannon)
To community groups
Vincent has made several
television appearances, the most
memorable a "live" performance of
her first nationally released
single/video "I'm Not Over You"
on "Prime Time Country."
As the draped curtain began to
rise, it caught the boom end of her
microphone, and just before it hit
her face, she grabbed it. and held it
as the curtain raised it higher.
Without missing a single note,
Vincent started singing the song
while holding a guitar in one hand,
the microphone in the .other,
propped on a rall chair in a flo\ ing
dress., After singing the first two
lines of the song, she burst ihto
laughter, recovered the microphone
and finished the performance. This
episode of "Prime Time Country"
landed on Dick Clark's "Bloopers"
A frequent performer on the
"Grand Ole Opry," Vincent said, "I
see bluegrass as the sister music of
country music and am glad to,
finally see that radio programmers
are beginning to agree."
Her latest single. "I've Forgotten
You," is on the play lists of many i
country stations, along with past
singles "If Heartaches Had Wings'"
and "You Cantt Take It With You
When You Go."
Vincent has performed with Alan
Jackson, Dolly Partoh, The Statler
Brothers, Vince Gill, Ricky
Skaggs, Alison Krauss, Earl

Former resident questions power plant
-:Dear Editor: :
:Even though I've been gone from
S.Perry since the first half of the last
:century, I still go back for the ,
occasional visit, and try to catch up
with the news while I'm there.
SDuring my spring visit, I learned
S ihat Taylor County's newest
controversy was a proposed
.bombing range. Somehow the two
just didn't go together in my mind:
bombs and the "Nature Coast." I do
Believe that the serenity promised
..by the very term "Nature Coast,"
:? would have been blasted to
.smithereens when the first bomb
'dropped. I was so glad to learn last
week that this project is on "hiatus"

task in making decisions that will
have an impact on the community
as they cannot satisfy everyone
regarding the outcome of the
process. Sometimes I have been on
the short end of the process as I
have felt that our elected officials
may not have considered all
aspects of a particular situation.
However, when the decisions
involve economic development it
becomes even more difficult to
make those decisions as people will
have an array of opinions
depending on their particular
interests. Every proposed
economic development will have
its pluses and minuses and nothing
is perfect.- Sometimes the, special
interest groups have difficulties in
looking at the total picture. My
particular interest is for the

the twentieth century, the economic

A major factor in any economic
system is diversification. Since, the
late 50s, the economic base
improved for the local economy
with the addition, of Buckeye,
sawmills, Tom's Food, Sportcraft

local economy came to a standstill
due to pressures from outside

What do I have in common
with Russian sailors?
Who would have thought that I would
have suffered mightily with a Russian
submarine crew stranded at the bottom
of the ocean?
I'm often compassionate, but
Russians?--the very people I spent my
childhood fearing, as I hovered under
my second-grade desk during the Cuban
missile crisis...the very people I feared
would bring our nation's demise.
The wall came down, I know. We all
grew up, I know. But our personal walls
often stay in place. And I thought about
that, as I agonized with this crew
surrounded by frigid water and a-
diminishing oxygen supply. My-
compassion quickly surfaced while I
prayed that the sailors would too.
If you want to kill me, please whack
me over the head once and be done with
it. Don't put me underwater with a
slowly declining oxygen supply. I'm not,
an amphibian; I gasp when you put a:
washdoth over my face. .
Early reports noted that the
,submarine was trapped when, its
propeller became entangled in a maze
of cables, lines and fishing nets. I
pondered that dilemma, thought of sea
turtles and then followed the fishing
line of this story back to my own garage,
one of the great black holes in the
universe. Shoes, gardening implements
and even boys can go missing in my
garage.- Some are. never heard from.
again; others surface from the
experience, looking much like the'
Russian sailors--dazed and subdued.
I don't know why our garage is the
albatross it is, but I think a large share
of the credit goes to the husband who
resists departing with life's many
"What is this?" I asked the other day.
It was the old, bafiged-up headlight unit
from the husband's truck that had been
replaced by a new one...months, years
"And this?" I ask, looking at the inner
workings of :a toilet which had been
replaced months, years ago.
"And this?" I ask, and as I ask it, I hear
the back door slam.
The husband doesn't stand around
long for. my soliloquies. I don't even
blame him. ,It's hard to defend yourself,
when surrounded by Sanford & Son's
In the spirit of full disclosure, I' will
admit to having a broken-down chair I.
can't depart with, 'and the daughter's
wooden wagon fromi'toddler days which
sits on wheels that barely work. I like
hoarding vases and baskets, and know I
might need those 12 paint cans for
touch-up. I have stacks of flower pots
and bags of fertilizer,. Seed pods are
drying on one shelf, while hydrangea
blooms are curing on another. I have
tiki lights for mosquito 'control and
stakes for tomato plants.
When we Samfords add "Son" to the
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
mix, the outcome is even more eclectic:
dried-up locusts, containers of
earthworms in various stages of decay,
old shoes caked with mud and manure.
Even the snakes are afraid to come in.:.
"Make sure no one sees the garage,"
says the daughter if we're about to have
company. If police tape wouldn't attract
attention to the area, I'd resort.to that.
On one of my recent attempts at
"shoring up the garage" (we never call it
cleaning--that would imply an outcome
that we simply can't produce), I was
astounded by the number of spools of
I picked up every spool I could and
then confronted the husband.
"I have found 18 spools of fishing line
out there. How many do you need, and
why aren't you using -the .ones you
"Really," he said, hardly looking up
,from Fox news.. "You know they come
in different weights--it's not one size
"Well, yeah, but 18? Are the fish really
"You,.don't get it," said the son,
".And look at this stack over here by
the t.v.--there are-six more spools right
there in front of you. That's 24. My
gosh, we'd have money if we didn't have
The back door slammed again, and I
was alone \with my thoughts.
Not long after that day of toil and
organization, I went to produce a pair of
shoes from their proper place in my
garage, and was instantaneously caught
in a .wicked web of fishing line. It
\rTapped around my foot, through the
slats in the shelves, beyond the shoes,
through the foldable chairs, one large
fishing net and eventually to the post
hole diggers in the distance. If I moved,
the diggers were going to land on my
I stood .there in complete silence,
looking around for help. There was
none. I could scream, but that would
just make me sweat more.
"I wish you were Lassie,"' i said- to the
dog, and I'm afraid it hurt her feelings,
but at least she didn't slam the door on
I studied my dilemma carefully and
soon determined that it was like getting
a knot out of a necklace. If I crawled
between the loop made by my shoe and
the set of shelves, then I could grab the
foldable chairs and liberate the .post-
hole diggers from the fishing line, thus
saving my vehicle.
"Easier said than done" to be sure, but
the procedure, I'm happy to report,
worked, and I emerged both dazed and
subdued, willing to sell all the
husband's, fishing line and treasures at
the next yard sale. It occurred to me
that, in Russia, they may want to do the
same thing with that submarine.

We would like to thank the
Taylor County Commission for
having the foresight to pursue the
proposed power plant and diversify
the economic base of Taylor
County. As we all know, a.
strong economic base is the life
blood of an\ community; without
it a community cannot survil e.
For a number of years we have
been a supporter of Buckeye, its
employees and its related forest
industries. Buckeye has been good
to our citizens and Taylor County
has been good to Buckeye.
However, our community's
dependency on Buckeye is so
strong that each time the
environmentalist groups and the
media attacks the river issues we
have seen our local economy come
to a standstill. From our
viewpoint the vast majority of the
citizens of Taylor County get very
nervous about the thought of
Buckeye no longer existing here.
It would be devastating for us if
something happened to Buckeye.
This is the primary reason Taylor
County needs to diversify' its
economic dependency. We need
more industry (in addition to our
forestry industry) with good

This is no different from your own
investment strategies. You should
never put all your eggs in one
basket. If you do, the minute that
particular industry takes a hit,
your financial well being is
paralyzed or worse, even-bankrupt.
We have witnessed how Enron
even affected some of Taylor
County's own citizens.
We now have the chance to
improve our economic base by
leaps and bounds, not only
through new industry but also
through real estate developments
that will increase our tax base two
fold. We may finally be able to
afford additional fire protection for
the beaches areas,-additional police
protection, upgrade our
recreational facilities for our
children, and enhance our school
system with the additional
property tax income.
We cannot afford to lose the
opportunity of getting new
industry in our area, especially a
business such as the proposed
power plant. That type of
business is economically solid and
will be here for decades to come.
According to demographic studies
Florida is growing by more than
two thousand people a day.
Someday, if we are not prepared,
we could be like California, black-
outs from a deficiency 'of
electricity and paying enormous
energy costs to boot. Not only
would Taylor County benefit from
the jobs that a power plant would
bring, but we could benefit from
lower costs of energy with more
power placed into the grid system
for us to ultimately purchase. We
all have to.make sacrifices every
day of our lives. We may not
think what those sacrifices are
sometimes, like polluting the air
every time you drive your vehicle,
but we have needs we are not
willing to do without. We must
prepare for the future now.
We understand people are
concerned about the environment
around us. So are we. With the
technology we have today this
proposed power plant will be one
of the most efficient and cleanest
producers of electricity of our
time. This will openthe door for
more of our children to stay in
Taylor County and secure good
paying jobs. Taylor County lias
been and always will be a great
place to raise a family. .We
support economic development for
the sake of our community aind
Again,, thank you Taylor

'Take it to Leon County?'
Early in the year of 2004, the
county commission, -refusing to
have a vote, was actively helping
Stephen Alford to establish a
deadly bombing range in Taylor
County. It took Mr. Alford so
long toget his ducks in a row that
two of the commissioners had to
run for re-election. Because of
their efforts to have the deadly
bombing range established in
Taylor County over the objections
of many citizens, they were
Well, well, well. Guess what.
Early in the year of 2005, even
without a public hearing, the
county commissioners are actively
trying to help Mr. Lawson erect a
deadly coal-fired electric plant in
Taylor County over the objections
of many citizens. Same song,
second verse. Before Mr. Lawson
will be able to get all his ducks in
a row, all five commissioners will
have to run for re-election. Same-
song, third verse, because of their
efforts to. force the erection of this
deadly coal-fired plant on the
citizens, they too will be soundly
If they are interested in retaining
their seats on the board, I would
suggest that they tell Mr. Lawson
to pack up his plans for that
deadly coal-fired plant and go back
to Jacksonville--today, not
tomorrow. Or better still, since
Tallahassee decided to contribute
several millions of dollars to-have
it built in. Taylor County, take it
to Leon County where they want

improved its diversification by
retaining jobs in the timber
industry along with the growth in
aluminum fabrication, shelter
manufacturing, healthcare, and
retail and service industries. In
addition, I have seen the escalation
of property values in the coastal
areas of the county with the
promotion of tourism.
With all things considered I
must commend the elected
officials and the business
community for their joint efforts
in attracting new businesses,
expanding existing businesses and
retaining existing businesses
within the community.
We cannot afford to rest on our
accomplishments, but must
diligently work to support-the
growth in the coastal areas of the
county, support the growth of the
existing industries within the
county, support the retail''and
service industries, support "the
tourism industries such as' the
sports complex and the riature
coast attractions, support 'the
medical facilities and any -new
industries such as the coal power
plant that is being proposed."
I encourage the elected officials
to sincerely consider the
"Heartbeat of America" and the
"Diversification" in their decision
process regarding the coal power
plant and/or other industries, the
coastal developments, and other
expansion that will be taking
place in Perry and Taylor County.
