Hit-and-run victim dragged by truck

A Perry man was lifeflighted to a

a vehicle down a city street

approximately 50 feet.
Perry Police Department Ptl. Lin
Gray said he was called to Wilder

Adams Beach: 2006 hurricane capital?

The strongest winds to hit the
Florida coast during. the 2006
hurricane season came on shore at
Adams Beach, according to
official records.
This year's hurricane season
winds down this Thursday with a
wimper after dire predictions

earlier this year by experts at
Colorado State University who
called for 17 named storms that
could cause catastrophic damage
to the Sunshine State.
Actually, it was the calmest
hurricane season in a decade with
only five of the nine named storms

reaching hurricane force (74 mph
Most of the storms turned north
into the open Atlantic Ocean. Only
one storm came into the Gulf of
Mexico, the fewest since 1997.

as well," said Gray.
"He also had blood on his
forehead which was running down
the right side of his face. The man,
identified as Martie King, 46, was
moaning continuously in pain, but
I could not get him to respond to
my questions," Gray added.
Witnesses at the scene said a
dark brown or gray, newer model
Ford Ranger extended cab truck
with dark tinted windows had
stopped to speak to King, when the
truck suddenly accelerated,
"dragging King down the road
before he fell off, onto the
pavement at the comer of Wilder

and Dundee streets," said Gray.
"The truck was being driven by a
white male, with a white female
also in the truck.

that King's arm got hung up in the
passenger side window and the
truck drove down the street with
him in the window until he fell

Nice to meet you, Mr. President

Staff writer
"Mom, you're not going to
believe what just happened..."
With those words, Robin
Gardiner Poncia of Victoria,
Canada, began relating to her
mother, Elouise Gardiner of Perry,
how her youngest son had been
just invited to meet former
President Bill Clinton.
The meeting was sparked by a
letter nine-year-old Jamie Poncia
enclosed along with a $204
donation to the Clinton
In the letter, Poncia shared how
he had made "conkers," a horse
chestnut on a string, and sold them
at school to raise money for
medicine for AIDS-infected
"Jamie had told me some time
back about his fundraiser and I had
encouraged him in it. I thought it
was a wonderful idea and felt he
went about it the right way, getting
permission to sell them in the
school. I never realized he would
be able to raise that much money,
but was certainly delighted when I
heard that he had," Gardiner said.
"Then Robin called me and said
that Clinton's office had just called
and wanted them to bring Jamie to
a VIP reception that was being
held there in Victoria. His office
also told them that Jamie would be
the only young person there and

that he could bring three
guests...mom, dad and older
"They got in the line where
Clinton was shaking everyone's
hand and expected just a
handshake and to go on through
the line, but Mr. Clinton's aide
whispered to him who Jamie was
and Clinton stopped the line
completely and talked to the
family for several minutes. He told
Jamie how proud he was of him
and did he realize that he had
saved a child's life for that year
with his $200 donation?" Gardiner
The family also received tickets
for four front row seats for the
speech Clinton delivered
following the reception.
Jamie's father, Wayne Poncia,
added, "Once all the excitement
was over, we went to the arena to
hear Bill Clinton speak. To our
surprise, Mr. Clinton recognized
Jamie in his speech.
"As a family we then went out
for lunch, and a chance to absorb
and reflect on the experience. My
cell phone rang and a local
television station asked to
interview Jamie. We were off to
the station for the interview next.
Finally, the next morning we
awoke to a newspaper article in
our local paper (Victoria Times
"** Please see page 2

Former president Bill Clinton personally recognized Jamie Poncia, the grandson of Elouise
Gardiner of Perry, during a recent appearance in Victoria, Canada. Joining Jamie at the VIP
reception were his parents, Wayne and Robin Gardiner Poncia, and older brother, Cameron.
Jamie raised $204 for the Clinton Foundation's AIDS initiative that specifically addresses
helping children infected with the virus.

Motorcycle chase hits 100

A San Antonio (near Lakeland)
man who had fled from Wakulla
County law enforcement and the
Florida Highway Patrol, led
officers in Perry in speeds of more
than 100 mph in a successful run
through the county before
being apprehended in Lafayette
Perry Police Department Ptl.
Dwight Norris said he received a
BOLO (Be On the Look Out) for a
motorcycle and rider which had
evaded Wakulla County officers
and was headed toward Perry.
Norris said he made contact with

the motorcycle at Hwy. 98 and
Golf Course Road.
"As I attempted to pull behind
the motorcycle," Norris said, "the
driver accelerated and passed three
vehicles on the right hand side of
the road, fleeing east at over 100
While in pursuit, Norris asked
PPD Ptl. Kyle Johnson and Sgt.
Dodd Franklin to shut down the
intersection of U.S. Hwy. 19 and
Hwy. 98.
The motorcycle driver, later
identified as Robert Shane Helms,
24, made a right turn through the

vacant lot at the intersection,
continuing his run down U.S. 19
The driver kept going, cranking
up speeds, once again, of 100
mph., with Norris and PPD Ptl.
Garrett Campbell in pursuit,
running through the intersection of
U.S. 19 and Puckett Road, "almost
causing a crash."
Norris said he discontinued the
chase as he watched Helms turn
onto County Road 30. The

Lafayette County Sheriffs Office
was advised of the pursuit and
finally arrested Helms after a high-
speed chase through that
If extradited back to Taylor
County, he will face charges
including fleeing and attempting to
elude law enforcement officers,
reckless driving and violation of
drivers license restrictions.
Helms had no license to operate
a motorcycle.

Shooting incident is being

'aggressively investigated'

to assist TCSO Inv. Donna Lee
in the case. The FDLE mobile
crime unit was also called to
help gather information and
Davis was treated at the scene
for injuries "consistent to
gunshot wounds to the head," by
EMTs Michael Lundy, Darby
Gibson, and R. B. Lee, along

with Paramnedic Debra Langford.
He was then taken to DMH
where he was flown to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
by DMH AirMedic One
transport helicopter, "due to the
* seriousness of the injuries."
Rice said the case will be
"aggressively investigated until
it is concluded."
Anyone with information
should call Lee at 838-3535. All
callers may remain anonymous.

Eye witnesses asked

to contact police dept.

was eventually flown by DMH
AirMedic One transport hospital to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Gray said later he made several
unsuccessful calls to TMH to
check on King's condition, but was
"I then contacted Tallahassee'
Police Department and requested
that an officer go by and checkon
King for me. Several minutes later,

an officer contacted me and said
King was still in the emergency
room in critical condition.
"He said that King had a spinal
cord injury, a closed head injury
and his brain was bleeding," said
Law enforcement is asking
anyone who saw the above
described vehicle in the
Wilder/Dundee streets area last
Tuesday, shortly after midnight, to
please PPD at 584-5121. All
callers may remain anonymous.

Jamie Poncia, above, decided that he wanted to raise money
to help fund medicines for children dying of AIDS. He visited
the Clinton Foundation website and discovered that $200
would save a child's life for a year, giving that child not only
all the medicine he would need but also the medical attention
and care that would be required.

'bursting with pride'

Colonist) as well as the national
Globe and Mail newspaper.
"All in all, it was a remarkable
24 hours and a privilege for Jamie
and his family to meet and be
recognized by Mr. Clinton. We are
very proud of Jamie's efforts and

thankful to Mr. Clinton for
singling him out."
As for Jamie's reaction, Gardiner
said, "He has been very
laidback--he's just thinking of
what he's going to do next to
raise money for the
"Needless to say, I'm just
bursting with pride."

Although the two
comprehensive amendments
concerning the Taylor Energy
Center drew large crowds and
lengthy testimony during two
public hearings, the commission
also recently approved two other
applications, one to correct an
commission in the comp plan and
one to change the land-use
designation for a 10-acre parcel
near the Econfina River.
The commission agreed to
transmit both amendments. to the
state's Department of Community
Affairs following public hearings
held during its regular board
meeting earlier this month.
The first amendment was an
application from the Board of
County Commissioners to add two
new land-use categories: a public
land use category which allows
educational, recreational,
institutional, conservation and
public service/utilities and a
Aviation Related Commercial land
use category which allows

industrial, commercial,
institutional and office related to
aviation as well as government and
other public uses and essential
According to Danny Griner with
the county's building and planning
department, the amendment was to
clear up a discrepancy where the
two land use categories are listed
in the land development code as
well as the future land use map,
but not in the comp plan.
Commissioner Jack Brown
made the motion to approve the
application with Commissioner
Pat Patterson seconding. The
measure passed unanimously.
The second application was for a
small scale amendment sponsored
by attorney Trey Howard, as agent
for Powell Hammock Venture
LLC, to amend the future land use
classification of 10 acres from
Agriculture-2 (one unit per 10
acres) to water oriented commerce..
According to Howard, the land
is near the intersection of Paul
Hammock Grade and Hwy. 98 and
would be used for canoe rentals as
well as camping facilities.

Alberto came onshore as a
weakening tropical storm on June
13 around Adams Beach with
winds of about 45 mph.
Alberto brought some much

needed rain to the area and caused
only minor coastal flooding due to
its storm surge.
For a few days, news media
from all over the country were in
Taylor County, including Fox
News' Greta Van Susteran, who
interviewed County Commissioner

Clay Bethea and others.
Experts now say a combination
of dry Sahara dust, a high
pressure system far east of
Bermuda and a rapidly growing El
Nino in the tropical Pacific Ocean
all contributed to keeping the 2006
hurricane season tranquil.

Every day is Christmas

at the old Greystone...
Christmas has been celebrated in the old Greystone since 1904, but
beginning this year, every day is Christmas.
Recently purchased by Christopher and Leah James, the historic home
now houses their Christmas Shoppe which will be showcased on this
year's Tour of Homes planned for Sunday from 1 until 5 p.m.
Built at the turn of the century by local merchant and hotel owner, Ottis
Faulkner, the home was a wedding gift to his daughter. It served as a
private residence until 1918 when it became the Greystone Hotel and
thrived until the Great Depression closed its doors. The home then
transformed itself into the Greystone Apartments and changed hands
several times -before it was purchased by the Zeigler Family and returned
to its role as an apartment house. The wrecking ball was in its future until
the downtown landmark was rescued by Steve Simmons, from whom the
Jameses purchased the home.
"Greystone" is a natural name for the structure because its exterior of
grey stones. was shipped by rail for construction. It hails back to the
Victorian Era but also boasts some Southern architectural charm with
sprawling porches, plantation columns, 13 rooms and nine fireplaces.
Still need. tickets to Sunday's tour? Visit Sisters' Mercantile, Cox
Electronics, or call Iris Parker at 584-9656. Tickets are $15.

The Taylor County Middle
School girls soccer has gotten off
to a good start this season, with
wins this season over Lafayette
County and Lake City Richardson.
The Lady Bulldogs came up short
in two other games against two of
the strongest teams they'll face all
season, those teams being
Suwannee County and Lake City
"We're real proud of the girls so
far this season. We're young and it
shows, but we're getting better
each game", said Head Coach
Jofiathan Mauk. "We've got to
continue to work on some aspects
of our. game so that we can be
more competitive with some of
these tough teams on our schedule
down the road."
The TCMS girls opened with a
4-2 loss to conference foe
"It was close down to the end,
but mental mistakes cost us in the
box", said Mauk. "We're looking
forward to playing them again."
Next up was Lafayette County
who had a mix of middle school
and high school freshman on their
"We didn't tell our girls until
halftime that the\ were playing.
against some high school .girls.
* because we didn't want them to be
intimidated," said Mauk. "Once
the girls realized that they could
play against some older players,
they played with a lot of
confidence in the second half,-
scoring 3 goals during that time. I
also made some lineup changes
that really made a difference in the
game. Moving Katie Holden back

to center defender really helped our
defense against Mayo."
The final score in that game was
4-1, in favor of Perry.
On Nov. 16, Lake City Middle
School came to town with a very
strong team.
"We played with them for a
half, but we couldn't maintain the
intensity during the second half
and.that cost us,".said Assistant
Coach Kasey Roberts. I ,
"We showed we can play with
them but we just have to do a
better job winning' the ball and
clearing it out of our end of the
field. We're young ,,and
inexperienced right now, but I like
the direction we're heading. The
girls are eager to learn and'work
hard everyday in practice and that's
what's going to make this team ,a
serious threat during conference
playoffs at the end of the season.
"We're trying to get some of the
inexperience players more game
time and it's tough learning under
fire, but a couple girls, Hanna'
Blanco and Hope Gonzalez, really
gave us 'some quality minutes
when they got in the game," she
Last Monday the Lady Bulldogs
hosted Lake City Richardson. The
Bulldogs completely dominated
that game outshooting Richardson
26 to 3.
"We scored early and had so
many wide open shots on goal '
that I think the girls just rushed
their shots not believing their
good fortune," said Mauk. 'I've
never seen so many missed shots
on a wide-open goal. You've got
to give.credit to the Richardson

keeper. She was under fire all
night and responded well. I think
we'll spend some time next week.
in practice working on placing the
ball in the part of the net where
the goalie isn't.
"As for our keeper, our starter
Elizabeth Devane was out for the
game, so we had to use our
backup goalkeeper, Shae Horner.
Shae did an excellent job for us
against Richardson. She played
with an injured finger, which
caused her to be in pain the entire
game. I'm really proud of her," he
Taylor went on to win 2-0.
Scoring for the Bulldogs this
,young season has been by done by
several Bulldog players, led by
Savannah Cantrell with 5 goals
',and 3 assist. She's followed by
Jenna Wilson, two goals;
Courtney Brown, one goal and 1
assist; Ashley Mixon, 1 goal;

By Bill Blue
People often times place importance on a person's final words.
What can lessons can we learn from Jesus' final instructions to
the apostles before He ascended into heaven?

Jesus expects us to evangelize. The books of Matthew, Mark,
Luke, John and Acts all record that Jesus' final instructions to
the apostles included the commands to preach the gospel (Matt.
28:19; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:44-52, John 21:15-17;'Acts

Matthew and Mark quote Jesus as requiring the Gospel to be
preached in "all nations" (Matt. 28:20; Luke 24:47), and to "the
whole human race" (Mark 16:15 Amplified Bible).

Jesus expects us to preach the necessity of baptism. According
to Jesus, baptism is necessary for salvation (Mark 16:16), and
to become one of His disciples (Matt. 28:19). Luke records
that Jesus commanded, "repentance and remission of sins should
be preached" (Luke 24:47). Peter, Luke, and Paul all say that
baptism is for the remission or "washing away," of sins (Acts
2:38. 22:16) .. ,, :

Jesus expects us to obey His commands as they are given.
The apostles and early disciples followed Jesus' instructions
exactly. Luke wrote that Jesus commanded the apostles to
remain in Jerusalem after His ascension and wait for the Holy
Spirit (Acts 1:4-5). Then, preach the gospel first'in Jerusalem,
then the rest of Judea, Samaria and finally the rest of the world:

46"Then He said to them, 'Thus it is written, and thus it was
necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the
third day, 47and that repentance and remission of sins should be
preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48
And you are witnesses of these things. 49Behold, I send the
Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of
Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.'"
(Luke 24:46-49) "But you shall receive power when the Holy
Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in
Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the
earth" (Acts 1:8, NKJV).

Following this instruction, the apostles returned to Jerusalem
(Luke 24:52;, Acts 1:12). They were in Jerusalem when they
received the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:12, 2:4).
Immediately after receiving the Holy Spirit, Peter preached the
first gospel sermon in Jerusalem and 3,000 people were baptized
(Acts 2:14, 41). Afterwards, Peter and others continued
preaching and working miracles until the doctrine of Christ
had "filled Jerusalem" (Acts 5:28).

Later, Philip went to Samaria. Many there "heeded" his
teachings, and were baptized through his preaching of Jesus
and the kingdom of God (Acts 8:5-6, 8:12-14).

Other Christians, fleeing Jewish persecution, spread the
Gospel "as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch" (Acts 11:19-
20). Eventually, the apostles and others succeeded in "turn[ing]
the world upside down" (Acts 17:6) for the Gospel had not
only been successful in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, but also
"throughout almost all of Asia" (Acts 19:26).

Thus, as Jesus commanded, the apostles preached the gospel:
first in Jerusalem and Judea, then Samaria and the rest of the

Jesus expects us to follow the apostles' examples and
teachings. Jesus instructed the apostles to teach the new
disciples they baptized to obey everything He commanded the
apostles (Matt. 28:20). Thus, we too, are responsible for
"preaching" or "proclaiming" God's word (2 Tim. 4:2; 1 Pet.
2:9; 1 Pet. 3:15).

Prehearing conference

scheduled for Dec. 21

Continued from page 1
special meeting: one to create two
new land use categories for power
generating facilities and the other
to change the land use designation
for some 3,000 acres from
agriculture to Electrical Power
Generating Facility-2. The land is
located next to Buckeye and
adjacent to Hwy. 27.
According to state statutes, the
commission will take into account
the need for electric system
reliability and integrity, the need for
adequate electricity at a reasonable
cost, the need for fuel diversity and
supply reliability and whether the
proposed plant is the most cost-
effective alternative available.
The commission will also
consider the conservation

measures taken by or reasonably
available to the project partners
which might mitigate the need for
the proposed plant.
According to the public notice
for the meeting, only issues
relating to the need for the
proposed power plant will be heard
at this hearing.
Separate public hearings will be
held before the Division of
Administrative Hearings at a later
date to consider environmental and
other impacts of the proposed plant
and associated facilities as required
by the Florida Electrical Power
Plant Siting Act.
The hearing will be held
Wednesday, Jan. 10, at 9:30 a.m. at
4075 Esplanade Way in
Tallahassee in the Betty Easley
Conference Center (Room 148).

members of the public who are not
party to the proceeding but wish to
speak on the issue are asked to be
present at the beginning of the
A pre-hearing conference will be
held at the same location on
Thursday, Dec. 21, at 9:30 a.m.
The purpose of this meeting, as
stated in the notice, will be to
simplify the issues, identify the
positions of the parties involved,
consider the possibility of
obtaining admissions of fact and
documents which will avoid
unneccessary proof, identify
exhibits and establish an order of
"We are confident in our
application and look forward to
supporting it during the regulatory
approval process," TEC
spokesman Mark McCain said.

The writer apparently refers to
early study work during the 1991
Federal Use Attainability Analysis
that considered 100: options to
improve the Fenholloway River--
including possible direct Gulf

reviewed, direct Gulf discharge

Dear Editor:
In the middle of the 1950s, I was
coaching football at Suwannee
High School in Live Oak. A good
friend invited my family to
accompany his family to a place
called Dekle Beach for the
weekend. My family and I had no
idea where Dekle Beach was, but
we went. Lov.e at first sight, quiet,
peaceful, natural, safe and

days there and I would like to
In the early 1980s, I began to
look for a place to buy for a second
home for the family, plus a place I
could retire when the time came.
The only option for me was the
beach area of Taylor County.
Condos at Panama City, Destin or
Tampa did not fit. In 1986, I was
able to purchase a place at Dekle
Beach. My family and friends have

most of my time at Dekle Beach.
All of us are aware of the

discharge pipeline.
A relocation of treated
wastewater within the
Fenholloway River is being
proposed to remove salty
wastewater from the freshwater
portion of the river.
During the past 15 years
there have been additional
important decisions--and important
improvements to the Fenholloway
River. Buckeye has invested $70
million to eliminate the use of
elemental chlorine to purify pulp.
Wastewater color has been reduced
by approximately 50 percent. New
cellulose washing and screening
equipment has been installed to
remove more organic material
from wastewater.,
The Florida Department of
Health- has lifted the 1990

Fenholloway fish advisory. Plant
water use has decreased
significantly. The restoration of
Buckeye-owned San Pedro Bay
wetlands has begun.

however, is well taken: even more
needs to be done to improve the
Fenholloway. Buckeye is
committed to making additional
investments to ensure the
Fenholloway is restored to fishable
and swimmable standards.

I say with great pride that I am a
sixth-generation Taylor Countian.
I was raised in Taylor County and
consider many residents good
friends. Over the years, many
people have had to either move
away from Taylor County for
employment or, like myself,
commute to Tallahassee for gainful
I have kept quiet regarding the
upcoming development (Magnolia
Bay Marina & Resort) at Dekle
Beach, but feel I now have to
speak out. Not only am I speaking
as a lifelong resident of Taylor
County, I also am speaking as a

landowner of Dekle Beach: I
support the project
I have read numerous letters and
heard numerous discussions about
the credibility of this development.
I believe that we, as a community,
need to rally behind this project
and support it as a means to benefit
all Taylor County residents.
While it's a project not without
risk, it's one that can help current
and future generations. I do not
know Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt
personally. His medical genius is
documented, but, more

upon seeing order fall apart before

would have done, they picked up
their cell to call someone. Uh oh
The setting is King's native
Maine. The survivors of "the
pulse" travel from Boston to New
Hampshire and up into Maine. It's
clear that the backwoods
atmosphere of rural New England
is close to the author's heart. It's a
frequent setting in his novels and
the highways, byways and culture

During the 70s and 80s, I was a
big fan of Stephen King's writing.
My bookshelves were full of
favorites such as "The Stand,"
"The Shining" and "It." I eagerly
awaited new releases with nervous
anticipation and then devoured the
pages as soon as possible.
One thing about King's novels
that originally captured me was his
ability to put me right into the
characters' shoes. They were
everyday, normal people that,
through no fault of their own, had
been thrown into frightful
situations. No matter how weird,
horrific or strange the story was, it
was believable. It was horror, but
horror for the everyday Joe or
In the mid 90s, about the time I
became a bookseller, I began to
feel like either I was outgrowing
King or he had just gotten too
weird. His books would make me
furrow my eyebrows in confusion
and skepticism. Although I would
read one every now and then,
they'd lost their pizzazz.
But last week I decided, on a
whim, to try "Cell." Originally

published in hardback in January
of '06, it was released in paperback
on Nov 21.
I was pleasantly surprised. It was
back to the old days of slipping
into the story with ease. The main
character, Clay, is a struggling
comic book artist with money
problems. He has finally gotten
published and is ecstatic about his
success. He's be-bopping down a
busy street in Boston on top of the
world when, wouldn't you just
know it, calamity strikes out of
In an instant, people on the street
start going slam nuts. By nuts, I
mean a large percentage of the
population begins to kill, maim
and lose any humanity they may
have possessed 15 seconds ago.
Needless to say, the action is fast
paced at that point. It's not until
things calm down a tad that Clay
figures out, that all the people
afflicted with the madness
happened to be talking on a cell
phone at the time. Uh oh.
To complicate matters, most, of
those who were lucky enough not
to be talking on their cell phone,

King has gotten his mojo back and

importantly, he also has a
reputation of being a decent
person. Why would he risk his
reputation for a development that
would destroy a community and
county? He doesn't need the
money. He has spent millions of
dollars on this development and
still does not have all the permits
needed to proceed. What will we
gain out of this?
I know Taylor County will gain a
showcase development to be proud
of. And, before you say we already
have that, we don't anymore. We
did at one time.
I enjoyed going to the beach and
letting the kids drive around the
beach on golf carts, and never
having to worry about who was out
there because you knew everyone.
You knew them or your parents
knew them, and everyone looked
out for each other.
The development that has
occurred around the beach areas
over the last several years has
changed that. Those days are over.

critics of Magnolia Bay -- bought
their property around the time I
purchased mine. I am guessing for
different reasons, however. They
have found what they believe to be
their retirement dream. They do
not have to worry about where
their kids will work so they can be
close to them. They want to hang
on to their dream, and I don't
blame them.
But you have to look further
than that, to the future. What
happens to that piece of land if it's
not developed by Dr. Pruitt? It
could be sold to a person who
doesn't care about our future and
could divide and pillage it into
small tracts and sell them off. The
result would be development, but
what will we, as residents of Taylor
County, gain? Who will provide a
canal and free boat ramp for them?
We should be working together
with Dr. Pruitt's developers to see
what we can gain for Taylor
County and its beach communities.
I deeply care about this county and
our future. I have three children
who I want to be close to. I want
them to be able to start a business,
find a job and make a living in a
county they call home like I do.
I am not picking on Rick
Causey, but, yes, he has been the
most vocal critic of this project.

To fight low birth weight

Mt. Zion Church awarded Heathy Start grant

The New Mt. Zion Missionary
Baptist Church, located at 1014
East Green Street, has been
awarded a Healthy Start grant to
target African-Americans, other
minorities and low-income women
in Taylor County for preconception
education and care.
The problem is low birth weight
babies in Taylor County and high
infant death rate in the Tri-County
area of Taylor, Jefferson and
Madison counties.
Data indicates that 17.9 percent
of African-American babies born
in Taylor County last year weighed
less than 2,500 grams. In 2004,
16.2 deaths per 1000 births
occurred in the tri-county area of
Taylor, Jefferson and Madison
counties; for non-white infants, it
was 29.3 deaths per 1000 births.
"Therefore, the goal of this
project is to reduce the death rate
for non-white infants and increase
the birth weight for African-
