A 28-yard field goal by John
Crowley in the third quarter and
fullback Sean Padgett's gutsy six-
yard touchdown run with just over
four minutes to play in the game
propelled the Taylor County
Bulldogs to a gut-wrenching 24-
21 season-opening victory over
the Chipley Tigers, Friday night in
The seesaw battle was knotted
at 14-14 at halftime and turned
into a defensive struggle in the
second half, with each team
managing only one touchdown
S Taylor County's defense held
Chipley to just 98 yards of offense
in the first half and even less in
the second half (65) for a total of
163 offensive yards.
However, the Tigers made up
for it with two long kickoff returns
S in the first half, including a 97-
yarder for a touchdown by Joe
Green on the opening kickoff that
gave Chipley a 7-0 lead just 16
seconds into the game.
After the Bulldogs tied the
game on their first drive with a
six-yard TD pass from Genario
McNealy to Sebastian Ingrain,
Green almost broke another return
for a touchdown, scampering 53
yards to the Bulldogs' 42-yard
line before being transported to
the hospital for dehydration.
The heroes,for the Bulldogs
were too numerous, to list on both

tors within Taylor County needs jobs, but at
what, price? The utility
Sincerely, representatives think we are
;President: Willing to become the "garbage
Gator Club., can" for more affluent parts of the
State of Florida.
I have responded to the letter
writer to tell the real story behind
test range issue. If the land for the
"test range" was simply big holes
of limerock and acres of hunting
woods and no lives were to be
lost, the issue of the "test range"
would not have been fought so
hard. This "remote" test range
impact area is 4.2 miles from our
home, along with the homes of
other families in the Econfina
River community also just a short
distance from the residents of
Cabbage Grove and the Aucilla,
River, and only 15 miles from
Perry. The missile test range was
not about saving' our soldiers'
lives. It was, as the Talla-
hassee Democrat referred to its
as the "bombing range plot."
Its real intention was to put
money in the- pockets of Mr.
Stephen Alford along with the
military's reason for putting the
range here; they don't want the
Panhandle citizens exposed to the
danger of the unreliable Lockheed
missiles. As stated by Col. Robt.
Nolan III, in the Tallahassee
Democrat, April 15, 2004,
issue, "fewer people will die if a
missile' goes astray (in Taylor
County) than if it goes astray in
After reading this statement, I
am sure you would agree, the
residents in the "remote" part of
Taylor County were not excited
about being included in the
number of the "fewer people
would die when. a missile goes
astray," and astray they will, as
you can read almost daily in any
newspaper of accidents.
The -2005 Department of
Defense House appropriations bill
stated the funding for Lockheed's
JASM missile was in jeopardy
because the accuracy rate of hitting
the intended target is 53 percent.
The question of the residents in
the "remote" area of Taylor
County is "where is the missile
the other 47 percent of the time?"
Mr. Manclark, from
Washington, D.C., in October
2004, stated the proposed missile
"test" 'range, including Hickory
Mound, would be used 24/7, by
every branch of the military, and
used to test the biggest bombs
ever made and yet to be made, used
from now until eternity.
Even though 75 percent of the
voters in Taylor County voted
"no" on the bombing range after
being told the real truth by Mr.
Manclark, Congressman Allen
Boyd has said to be "ever vigilant"
on this issue. The citizens of
Taylor County deserve to, know
the whole truth about the "Big
Footprint Bombing Range." Mr.
Manclark stated there never was
any intent to put the bombing
range in Taylor County.
After that meeting and hearing
that statement, I filed a Freedom
of Information Act (FOIA) request
for all information on the Taylor
County bombing/missile testing
range. It has been 10 months since
I filed the FOIA request. Every
two weeks I receive a letter from
Wright-Patterson AFB informing
me more time is needed to go
through the "voluminous" amount
of records about the Taylor
County missile test range. It
seems strange in light of the
statement there never was any
intent to put a bombing range in
Taylor County. Remember
Congressman Boyd said to be
"ever vigilant" on the test range
issue. Taylor County may have a
coal plant and a 24/7 bombing
As you may remember the
military promised employment:
emergency rescue personnel (if
someone is hit, the last thing they
would need would be a funeral, not
emergency rescue) and personnel
to bury the missile contamination
in the Taylor County limerock
pits in our drinking water.
If these come to pass, people
will not move to Taylor County,
they will leave Taylor County.
Taylor County resident
