Bulldogs drop two in kickoff classic
The absence of five players,
mostly due to injuries, depleted an
already thin roster for the Taylor
County Bulldogs' pre-season
jamboree and contributed to a pair
-of one-half losses to Lafayette
County and Hamilton County
Friday night at Dorsett Stadium.
The Bulldogs fell by a score of
.21-7 in the opening half to the
Lafayette County Hornets, who
are coming off of an undefeated
regular season and 3-2 second-
round play-off loss to eventual
Class 1-A state champion Port St.
The Hornets ran out of steam in
-the jamboree's middle half of play,'
-as the Hamilton County Trojans
,pulled out a 14-10 win over
Lafayette with a long late
The Tfojans finished undefeated
in the jamboree by handing the
:.-Bulldogs a 20-6 loss in the third
and final half of play.
Taylor County's lack of a
-running game factored heavily into
both losses, as the Bulldogs
finished with negative rushing
yards in both halves of play. Nine
fumbles, including five bad snaps
and four turnovers also contributed
-.to the two losses.
Taylor County had 14 carries for
minus 13 yards and five fumbles
in their 21-6 loss to Mayo.
-Despite not turning the ball over
,:;.in the final half, the Bulldogs lost
-.-21 yards on 11 runs and had four
-fumbles (all recovered).
-:Bryckoski Jackson 'was not
scheduled to play, but got last-
second clearance from medical staff,
-to suit up for the game. Jackson
was an obvious force early in the
first half against Lafayette,
carrying the ball twice on the
Bulldogs' first drive and making a
diving, one-handed interception on
Mayo's first possession before re-
injuring his shoulder on.thereturn-

(fullback/linebacker) and Cory
Sadler (fullback/defensive linemen)

the coaching staff to juggle the
line-up with a shortage of players
at several important positions.
The losses hurt the Bulldogs'
rushing attack and defensive depth
as .the remaining players were

3 on both offense and defense.
Bright spots for the Bulldogs
included senior QB Marquis Ellis,
who completed 9 of 19 passes for
91 yards with no interceptions.
However, bad snaps and a fumble
contributed to the Taylor County
signal-caller losing 39 yards on
six carries. ,
Junior receiver Greg Sneed had a
very impressive jamboree,
catching, six passes for 72 yards
and returned an interception 65
yards for a touchdown against
Senior receiver Chad Ellis also
showed big-play potential,
catching a nine-yard pass and
returning a punt 55 yards for a
touchdown against Mayo.
With both starting runningbacks

Jarvis McGrew carried three times
for four yards and freshmen
runningbacks Reggie King (7'
carries, 10 yards) and Dominique

Smith showed tremendous speed
with a pair of kick returns for 21
and 24 yards, while sophomore-
Jarquis Ellis had a .17-yard
SSenior offensive and defensive
linemen Drew Southerland and
Adam Cook were forces on both;
sides of the ball, while senior
linebacker Jake Meacham --- who
knocked the helmet.off of a ball
carrier on one boie-jarring tackle
-- picked up where he left off last
season, punishing opposing ball
carriers and seemingly getting in
on every defensive tackle.
Junior Kendall Thompson was a
big bright spot on defense,
coming up with several big plays.
including sacks, QB pressures and
a deflection at the line. Fellow
juniors Tyler DuBose, Will Hall
and Carl Padgett, who missed the
second h.lf, also had big plays on
both the offensive arid defensive
lines in addition to the solid play
of sophomore Cody Davis.
Lafayette County took
advantage of their size advantage
and powerful rushing attack to
churn out 23 carries for 150 yards
and three touchdowns.
Taylor had fist possession and
moved the ball well in two plays
with a four-yard run by Jackson
and a 10-yard pass from Ellis to
Meacham. However, Jackson
fumbled on the next play and
Mayo took over near midfield.
Jackson, DuBose and Quentin
Tucker combined for a sack and
Jackson made a beautiful one-
handed interception two plays later
to give the ball back to the
Bulldog offense. However, during
the interception return Jackson re-
injured his shoulder and left the
After Taylor was forced to punt,
the Hornets went to the running
game to grind out a 66-yard drive
ending with a two-yard TD run by
Eric McIntyre with 2:22 left in the
first quarter. Meacham, Hall and
Chad Ellis, (big goal line tackle
and near interception) all had big
plays on defense.

had to punt after M. Ellis was
sacked for a 13-yard loss.
A long 38-yard run by Hornet
fullback Kurt Skelly -moved
Lafayette to the Taylor 33, but
Jarquis Ellis made a big
interception and returned it 17
yards. King had two 'nice carries,
but McGrew was stopped short of
a first down on a 3rd down run,
forcing freshman Ty Crowley (3
punts, 31.6-yard average) to make
the first of two nice punts.
DuBose and Thompson ke'ed a
nice defensive stand, but the
Bulldogs found themselves backed
up at their own 10 after a punt.
.Bryant lost two yards on first
down and M. Ellis dropped the
ball at the one-yard line
attempting to roll out on a pass,
Mclntyre scored on the next
play to give Mayo a-14-0 lead

lack of a rushing attack and
injuries on defense contributed to
Hamilton cruising to a 20-6 win
in the second half.
Taylor went three-and-out to

immediately went to their speedy
stable of runningbacks as four
different ball carriers moved the
Trojans 73 yards in just seven
plays before capping the drive
with a 22-yard pass to tailback
Trailing 6-0, the Bulldogs put
on an impressive passing
performance as M. Ellis connected
with Sneed for a pair of passes for
27 yards and another nine-yard
completion to Chad Ellis.
King ran for seven yards and
fumbled, but Davis was there to
pounce on the ball. Ellis almost
connected with Meacham on a
pass at the five-yard line, but
fumbled for a hine-yard loss and
King was thrown for a four-yard
loss to end the drive.
Southerland and Meacham came
up big on defense for the
Bulldogs, along with Tucker and
Zach Bradshaw. Thompson also
had two tackles for a loss and

The fact that the power company

of the public's knowledge, and not
before the county commission first
agreed to thp idea of a coal plant in
Taylor County, suggests one of two,
The power company held back
and waited to see what public
reaction was going to be before,
using the money to manipulate
public opinion. (If -they had
'received a mildly against or overall
'favorable reaction to the coal plant
from the public, the money never
would have been offered.)
The other possibility is that 'one
'or more county commissioners
may have known about the money
and didn't inform the public.'
' I see the money as basically a
bribe. The power company doesn't'
like the public reaction and so is

will paint it as evidence of their

as evidence of future intentions to

reality, they consider it part of the
cost of doing business.
What's important about the

Where then is the compromise?
First the commission passes a
resolution that does not protect the
pockets of those who are offering
millions of dollars of support
money to the county. Instead if a
coal plant is going to be
constructed in Taylor County they
demand it to be a "state of the art"
coal power plant.
If the commission were to act in
such a manner it could help to lay
to rest the question as to who they

power plant promoters?
Compromise from the
opposition comes in the form of
agreeing to such terms. It should
be apparent to them that there is no
meeting ground with the existing
commission as the proposal stands.
A state of the art coal plant for the
opposition would be the lesser of
the pollution problems and a win
for their efforts. It is known that in
compromise agreements there is
no single winner.
Failure on the part of the
commission to agree to such a
compromise could be grounds for
the opposition's future arguments
before the reviewing agencies and
possibly the courts. That such
findings of support for the "basic"
proposed power plant by the
commission and their refusal to
demand the most modern system
were in fact selective against the
citizen's health and welfare.
If a compromise were agreed
upon then a vote could be put
before the voters asking "which
type of power plant do you select?"
The commission would be wise to
recognize that such a vote would
appear to remove them from the
liability argument that of
inequitably endangering the
citizens of Taylor County.

Dawicke named court administrator
Chief Judge Julian Collins has
announced the appointment of
Barbara L. Dawicke of Gainesville
as the new trial court administrator
for the Third Judicial Circuit,
which consists of Columbia, Dixie,
Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor counties.
"It is difficult to say in a few
words what the Court
Administrator does," Collins said,
"but basically she and her staff are
the behind-the-scenes people who
make the court system work. The
court administrator works closely
-with the chief judge on the
development of the circuit's
budget, policies and programs, and
acts as the circuit's liaison to
local and statewide committees.
Additionally, the court
administrator and her staff are
responsible for implementing the
circuit's court programs,, managing
the judicial and courtroom
schedules, supervising court
reporting, providing court
interpreters when needed, and
coordinating and cooperating with
clerks of court, judicial assistants,
and security personnel. Court
administration is also responsible
for maintaining trial court statistics
and compiling reports for the state;
ensuring effective technological
support for our courts--and on and'
on. With the 2004 switchover of
the funding of the state court
system from counties to the state,
the role of the court administrator
has become increasingly crucial to
the efficient functioning of our
Dawicke brings to the position
her knowledge of court
management and operations,
derived from her legal training and
experience. She holds a law
degree from the University of
Florida and, just prior to this
appointment, served in the Eighth
Judicial Circuit for two years as a
staff attorney and six years as a
senior manager in court operations.
Before that, she was a practicing
attorney with Jacksonville Area
Legal Aid, a biological scientist
and a volunteer with the Peace
Corps in central Africa.
"Ms. Dawicke was chosen by a
consensus of all the judges in this
circuit from a group, of well-
qualified applicants after two full
days of interviews," Judge Collins
"We are all looking forward to
working with her."
Dawicke took office in the
Columbia County Courthouse
Monday, Aug. 21. She can be
reached at (386) 719-2163.

Perry Rotary Club members by
Boys & Girls Club Director Kevin
Kidd at a recent meeting.
Kidd gave an update on the
club's summer programs as well as
highlights of their new campaign.
One of. their biggest programs
was their summer breakfast and
lunch program, serving some
17,00.0 meals, Kidd said.
"We had one kid who was taking
his lunch home because it was the
only meal he would have that day.
That's the kind of kids we have in
the Boys & Girls Club.
"We have kids with healthy
bellies. That's the kind of kids we'
have in the Boys & Girls Club."
According to Kidd, the club's
traveling basketball team traveled
to a NCAA tournament over the
"There were, college coaches
scouting kids there," he added.
Opportunities like the basketball
team and the drum core are in
addition to the club's education and
"We're looking for partners who
want to improve our community,"
Kidd said of their new campaign,
S"It Just Takes One."
"We want to help you help us,"
he said, adding that there are many
opportunities to donate not just
money but service.
"Some people want to donate
time. Some people want to donate
their talents. Some people want to
"We're not asking for a handout.
We have good kids at the Boys &
Girls Club. They don't need a
handout; they need partners," Kidd
"I'm tired of hearing our kids are
bad, they're not worth investing
"If you think back, there's
something you wanted to do, but
didn't have the resources. And it's
not just money," he said.
"Sometimes it's just having
someone to get them there. That's
what .we are. We're. a resource to
get them there."
