Against former TCI officer

Inmate battery charges dropped

The state attorney's office
will not be pursuing charges
against Donald Fittje Jr., 35,
one of four former Taylor
Correctional Institution (TCI)
officers charged with
misdemeanor battery in

The remaining three
officers--Timothy Twiggs, 37;
Sgt. Gary Griffin, 39; and Sgt.
Rionodo Brown, 35--will each,
take their cases to a jury.
Court dates have been set for
Twiggs and Brown in
September. A similar date is

expected for Griffin's case,
court officials said.
Charges against Fittje were
dropped by the state attorney's
office last week, June 16.
The Florida Department
of Corrections (FDOC)
terminated the employment of

all four officers at the time of
their arrest and also stated that
each would be decertified.
The charges stemmed from
an alleged incident on Sept. 22,
2008, in which the officers
were accused of misdemeanor
battery on two inmates.

The fate of the Yates Creek
boat ramp remains uncertain A
after the Taylor County
Commission rejected a lease
agreement for the property.
Several commissioners
objected to the agreement over
the still unsettled issue of
whether the property is private
or public.
The boat ramp, which has
been used by area anglers and
boaters for decades, is part of
the larger Yates Creek area
owned by the Clark family,
whose representative, Debbie
Casey, first approached the
commission in early April
about entering into a lease.
Casey said her family
wanted the county to lease the
property to reduce the liability
the family' has should anyone
be hurt while there. She said
the tradition began with his
"In honor of our
predecessors' wishes, the
family has carried on that
tradition through the years,"
she said. "Of course, it was a
different world back then:
people didn't sue you for
injuring themselves on your
property and the government
wasn't in the habit of seizing
private property."
Since then, the county
and the family--and their
attorneys--have been working
to find a suitable agreement
that would not disallow either
party from claiming ownership
of the land in question.
Commissioner Lonnie
Houck has led the
commission's opposition to the
agreement, stating the boat
ramp and the portion of the
roadway leading to the ramp
are public property because it
is a prescription easement due
to its longstanding use by the
public and also because of the
work done there by the county
in the past. Therefore, entering
into a lease agreement would
hurt the county's position, if it
chose to pursue ownership of
the property.
In April, commissioners

Husband called 911

from hospital lobby

Dear Editor:
On Saturday, June 13, at 6:30
p.m., I brought my wife, Timi,
to the emergency entrance of
Doctors' Memorial Hospital.
She was feeling faint, nauseous
and frightened.
When we entered, there was
no one in the lobby. I pushed
the button for service. A woman
opened the door from inside. I
said that we needed a doctor.
She said, "You can't come in
here, you have to go to the main
entrance of the hospital."
I said, "In the past, I've
always come into the lobby of
the E.R." She said, "We can't

accept you here. You must go
to the hospital's main entrance."
My wife had to climb back
into my truck and I drove
to the main entrance of the
hospital. There was no one
around. I looked up and down
all the hallways. I saw no one.
I shouted, "How do I find a
doctor? Is there anyone here?"
I shouted several times. No one
So I called 911 on my cell
phone. I told the operator that
I needed a doctor. She replied,
"Sir, you need to go to the
hospital." I said, "I'm'in the
lobby of DMH right now and

there's no one here!"
Then the first woman came
through the E.R. and said, "You
need to come in here (meaning
the E.R.). So my wife had to
climb back into my truck and
we went back to the lobby of the
E.R. where had been before. At
last they attended to her, brought
her a wheelchair, admitted her
and took care of her. Once we
got their attention, the staff was
willing and able.
In the future, I hope that the
E.R. will be open and available
in a professional manner, as is
'expected by all our citizens.

Letters to the Editor .

Family member speaks out

over Yates Creek boat ramp

Editor's Note: At the June
16 meeting of the Taylor County
Commission, Debbie Casey, one
of the family owners of the Yates
Creek property, read aloud an open
letter to commissioners regarding
the ownership of the roadway and
boat ramp located on the property.
She subsequently submitted the
letter to the Taco Times, and it is
published below in full.
Dear Commissioners:
Before Mike Smith addresses
the issue of the lease agreement
for the Yates Creek property,
I would like to present a
summary of facts with regard to
the ownership of the road and
boat ramp that are on our Yates
Creek property. I believe that, in
a previous County Commission
meeting, the Commission
discussed the ownership of some
of the Yates Creek property
without any representation from
the Clark family. Tonight, I am
representing the Clark family,
and therefore, in order to clarify
a few misconceptions, I would
like to take an equal opportunity
to speak about the ownership
of the Yates Creek property
from my family's perspective.
I apologize if some of you
have heard some of these facts
before, but I am attempting to
give an uninterrupted summary
of events.
First, back in the late 1940's,
my grandfather, L. B. Clark,
Sr., along with a friend of his,
bought an undivided interest
in the 220 acres that includes
Yates Creek, the boat ramp and
the surrounding property. Prior
to this purchase, according to
I aLaE~llra~ss sfr

the research that I did about five
years ago, the DeVane family
had a sponging business, as well
as a commercial fish house there
at the boat ramp. Consequently,
when my grandfather and his
friend purchased the property,
the road and boat ramp were
both already in existence. At the
time of purchase,however, there
was no mention on the Deed of
a County road, a County right-
of-way or any type of easement
on the property, thus making
that portion of the road privately
owned. There was also a house
on the property that was located
just inside the property line;
at one time, this is where the
DeVane family lived--as I said,
this was private property. That
means that the Clark family
has been paying property taxes
on the Yates Creek property,
including the road and boat
ramp, for around 60 years.
Yates Creek quickly became
a favorite family place for
fishing, as well as goose and
duck hunting. Back during this
time, however, fishing and duck
hunting were not done just for
sport; it was a way to feed your
family. Now, my grandfather
and his friend could have fenced
the property off, not allowing
anyone in to hunt or launch his
boat at the ramp, but they did not.
They could have put up a gate
and given only a privileged few
the key, but they did not. They
also could have put up a gate
and charged people for a key,
but they did not do that, either.
I'm sure, not wanting to come
between a man and feeding his

family, they simply said, "This
is my property, but I will share it
with you." Hence, the tradition
began of my family's sharing
our Yates Creek property with
the public. In honor of our
predecessors' wishes, the family
has carried on that tradition
through the years. Of course,
it was a different world back
then: people didn't sue you for
injuring themselves on your
property and the government
wasn't in the habit of seizing
private property.
To continue my summary,
however, in 1978, my father,
Bishop Clark, Jr., at the request
of the owner of the other half of
the property, bought the other
owner out, thus leaving the
Clark family as the sole 6o ner'
of the Yates Creek property.
On that Deed, as well, there is
no mention of a County road,
a County right-of-way or any
type of easement.
Moving on, I would
like to clarify some other
misinformation regarding the
County's attempt to improve the
boat ramp. Apparently, in 1987,
the County took it on themselves
to do some work on the boat
ramp. Quite obviously, the work
was done without my family's
knowledge or consent, because
the County did not apply for
the proper permitting. You see,
a permit request would have
required the owner's signature
on it. Consequently, when the
Department of Environmental
Protection discovered that there
was no permit for the work the
County had done on the boat
ramp, they required the County
to remove all of the materials
they had illegally added to the
ramp, thus leaving the boat
ramp in its original state. The
end result is that there were no
improvements made to the boat
ramp by the County.
Another incorrect statement
I've read on an Internet site
is that we didn't try to claim
our road until the County had
repaired the road after the
Storm of the Century. This
is not true. For one thing, we
didn't realize that we had to
claim what we already owned.
The way it came to our attention
that the County (or someone)
was trying to claim it, was
that around 1991, my brother,
Bish Clark, was camping in
his little "bungalow"--for lack
of a better word--at the old
home site at Yates Creek. A
man who said that he owned
a lot in Leisure Retreats asked
where he could park his. RV.
When Bish asked him what he
meant, the man proceeded to

I wonder how hot it is on Mercury
in the summertime.
Mercury, as you know, is the
closest planet to the sun and
therefore the hottest. This city, as
you know, comes right between it
and Venus giving us the number
two status in the solar system for
heat production.
Or so it seems, in the summertime.
I remember the summers of my
childhood 40 years ago. The heat
was different in the 1960s--it was
everywhere. You had little or no air
conditioning with which to compare
the outside air, so you merely
looked for the coolest place outside.
I can tell you where it was: under*
the mimosa trees in the morning, in
the back bedroom at noon, under
the sprinkler in mid-afternoon, and
under the sheltered carport before
After that, you turned on the attic
fan to cool off the house, and sat in
lawn chairs in the back yard waiting
for the interior temperature to drop
into the 80s.
Having learned survival skills
during my growing up years
in Alabama, let me suggest
cool foods: watermelon on ice,
tomatoes out of the garden and
then the refrigerator, grape Koolaid
enhanced with ice cubes made from
the same, deviled eggs, cold fried
chicken, or my Father's favorite,
bedtime buttermilk with a leftover
corn muffin. Hey, we weren't too
far removed from the cotton fields,
and had learned how to eat well in
order to feel well.
In the mornings, the ice cream
man (who was really just a teenager)
came down the street in his father's
golf cart and sold us orange push-
ups. In the afternoon, we traveled

by bikes to "the little store" where
we purchased Coca-Colas in real
bottles along with whatever candy
we could afford--depending on
our current cash flow from the
neighborhood lemonade stand.
We played war over the hills and
dales, captured June bugs during
the day and lightning bugs at
night. We played Jacks, skated and
stood in awe as the air conditioner
installation people pulled up in my
It was a domino effect: almost
everybody in the neighborhood was
installing central air conditioning.
Mr. ,Lee and his workers were
friendly folk, and they bought
plenty of lemonade from our stand
while ripping up the interior of our
house in order to centrally pipe in
cool air.
Mother never complained about
the mess.
She dusted and swept.
She smiled at my father.
I know now that his life was
remarkably better after air
conditioning came to live with us.
It's funny though. After we
had a thermostat and a chosen
temperature, we still pretty much
carried on our normal routine.
Mimosa trees in the morning,
board games in the back bedroom
at noon, sprinkler in the afternoon
and carport by supper.
After we ate, we retired outside to
listen to the locusts and watch the
sun go down.
But oh what a cold blast hit you
at the back door when lo you trod
those steps to bath and bed.
"This air conditioning was worth
every penny," I heard my mother
say about that...

there was no mention on the

that the property was the

Maintenance done'without family's knowledge'

Continued from page 2
tell him that the Realtor who
sold him his lot had informed
him that this area was public
property. Bish politely told the
man that that wasn't the case,
even though he was welcome
to use the ramp. It was then that
Bish realized that he needed to
take some action. Shortly after
that, around '91 or '92, he went
before the County Commission
to ask them to cease and desist
any maintenance they had, from
time-to-time, been doing on the
portion of the road that was on
our property. Then, in 1993,
the Storm of the Century hit.
Immediately after the Storm of
the Century, my brother took his
own tractor down to Yates Creek
and made the portion of the road
on our property serviceable for
our family's use. Nevertheless,
once again, without my family's
knowledge or permission, and

after being asked not to do any
further maintenance on the
road, the County went on our
property and proceeded to do
work on the road. As soon as
my brother found out what the
County was doing, he rushed to
Yates Creek to stop them; by the
time he arrived, however, a lot
of the work had already been
done, but it was definitely not at
my family's request and it was
done in spite of being told to
stay off our property with road
As another example of
ownership, in 1994, Bish had
2 fully State- and County-
approved and permitted septic
tanks installed: one at the old
home site and one at the boat
ramp site. Even though he had
to block the one at the boat ramp
off with boulders, they are both
still in place.
And the story continues--
once again, around 1997, my
brother appeared before the

Commission,. and once again
told the County to keep their road
equipment off our portion of the
road. After that, in order to help
stabilize it, he planted the whole
road in grass seed. Yet again, the
County disregarded his request
to stay off the property, then
went in and graded up all the
grass that he had planted (at a
cost of nearly $750). Finally, in
1998, realizing that the County
would not honor his request to
keep their equipment off our
road, Bish installed two posts
on either side of the road at our
property line. They were wide
enough for the local fishermen
to pass through with their
trucks and trailers, but not wide
enough for the road graders to
get through. He then re-planted
the grass seed for stabilization
purposes. Consequently, since
1998, the County has done NO
road maintenance on the portion
of the Yates Creek road that is
on our property.

Since then, without the
County's interference, and
because of Bish's stabilization
efforts, along with a load or
two of lime-rock every now
and then that he purchased
from Melvin Bowden, the road
has remained in fairly good
shape, even though it has been
through numerous hurricanes
and storms. This leads me to
believe that the road should be

relatively inexpensive for the
County to maintain.
This completes my summary
of the ownership history of the
Yates Creek road and boat ramp
from my family's perspective.
Despite all of this, so that the
public can continue to use the
boat ramp and surrounding
property without liability to our
family, the offer still stands for
the County to lease the property

from us for $1 per year. Mike
Smith will now present the
lease agreement, then you
can vote whether or not to
accept the lease. My family
does, however, request a
resolution to this matter tonight
--we've all been working on this
for six months, and that is long
Respectfully submitted,

State grouper rules

to be same as feds

After carefully considering
testimony from several fishery
organizations and conservation
groups at its public meeting
in Crystal River, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) decided
to make its grouper rules in
state waters compatible with
federal regulations to help
rebuild Gulf gag grouper stocks
and ensure quality fishing for
this important species in the
"It just makes sense to use
the management approach that
is tailored to work best for the
recreational and commercial
Gulf grouper fisheries," said
FWC Vice Chairwoman Kathy
"Being consistent with the
federal rebuilding plan for
Gulf gag grouper will help
achieve harvest-reduction
goals for the commercial and
recreational fishing sectors,"
she said.
The new FWC rules establish
a Feb. 1 through March 31
closed spawning season for all
recreational harvest of shallow-
water groupers (gag, black, red,
yellowfin, scamp, yellowmouth,
rock hind and red hind) in all
Gulf state waters, except in
Monroe County.
The intent of this rule is
to limit the unintended catch
and possible mortality of

gag grouper by closing the
recreational harvest of all
similar shallow-water grouper
species during the spawning
The new rules also decrease
the daily recreational aggregate
bag limit for grouper from five
fish to four per person in Gulf
state waters, except in Monroe
The daily recreational bag
limit for Gulf gag grouper is
two fish per person within the
aggregate limit, and anglers
may also keep two Gulf red
grouper within this limit.
In addition, the new rules
reduce the commercial
minimum size limit for Gulf red
grouper, and for all importation
and sale of red grouper, from
20 inches to 18 inches total
This will still allow the
harvest of marketable fish
and 'significantly reduce the
number of 18- to 20-inch red
grouper that do not survive
upon release.
Commercial Gulf grouper
fishermen are also strictly
regulated by reduced individual
annual harvest limits and an
important spawning season
closure off the Big Bend coast
of Florida.
The FWC's new Gulf
grouper rules will take effect in

Red snapper season cut

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) on Thursday voted to
adjust the recreational harvest
season for red snapper in Gulf
of Mexico state waters to
account for over-harvests in
2008. The commission took
this action after receiving
support from several fishing
groups and conservation
organizations at its public
hearing in Crystal River.

federal waters (beyond nine

1 through Aug. 14. The FWC
has now approved the same

There's Bad News and Good News #4

It's been several months since I last wrote, months with continued turmoil around
the world and here in our own country. Strangely, it seems that many people continue
blithely along seemingly unaware of what is really happening.
One of the most important aspects of maturity; physical, mental or spiritual, is
Willingness to accept responsibility for yourself, your actions, your direction.
Today it appears that we have a huge segment of the population who are so immature
that they look to the government to take care of them, and they elected a President
who promises to do just that.
Though I know that all the things that are happening today are necessary for our
transition into a much more beautiful way of life, I find it sad that this great nation must
be brought to it's knees by non-thinking, selfish, greedy groups before the cleansing.
These are the same people.who have.no respect for Mother Earth or the things of
nature. Those who have no self respect have no respect for anything.
'One of the most important things that those who truly wish to prepare themselves
for the great changes that are ahead is to learn to commune with Mother Nature. When
I say Commune, I mean really communicate. Recognize that the forests, streams, soil,
and the sky have an awareness of you just as much as you are aware of them.
Indigenous peoples of the world have always known this and they have never felt the
separation from nature that westerners do.
When Native Americans speak of the Great Spirit, the Spirit of the Buffalo, the Spirit of
the Forest, the Rain Spirit, etc, too many people consider it just primitive superstition.
What they are missing is the Indigenous peoples know that we dwell within the
wonderful energy, life and consciousness of the Creator.
By the way, my favorite Grandmother was one fourth Native American.
Too long western religions have duped people into believing that they are separate
from the Creator. That God, and spirit are "out there" some place and that you have to
have a priest or preacher to act as your go-between.
The truth is that we dwell within God just as the fishes dwell within the sea. For an
atheist to say that he doesn't believe in God is similar to a fish saying that it doesn't
believe in water.
The life force that flows through the forest, all the plants and animals is the same
life force that fills you. Even the rocks and soil have their own level of awareness. The
air and the waters are wonderful gifts that sustain our lives. Having reverence and love
for all the Creators gifts will lift you up in consciousness, and prepare you for the down
pouring of Divine Love that will soon descend upon us.
Those who would destroy our forests, put poisons in our water and pollute the air
will soon have a day of reckoning.
I know that some of you who want to prepare yourselves have questions about
the talk of entering a new dimension as the Christ Consciousness fills those who are
ready. If you recall, at one point when Jesus was talking to his followers, he said, "In my
Fathers House are many Mansions".
No, he didn't mean that there are a lot of nice houses up there someplace. He
was saying that in the Spirit Realm, there are many levels or planes of existence, and
expression. In other words, many dimensions.
That is ascending frequencies of energy as you rise above the dense level in which
we now reside. We all change our frequencies to some degree all the time but maybe
not consciously. When you are happy, healthy and full of vim and vigor you are living
a much higher frequency than the person who is gloomy, pessimistic and lazy. Just
imagine how wonderful it is going to be living a life of no illness, no aging, freedom to
accomplish and create your most exciting dreams.
The Bible, of course, predicts some very uncomfortable happenings for us before
things get better. There are prophecies from many sources of land changes, floods,
fires, earthquakes, wars, and diseases. Some of these things are already with us, and
I suspect things will get much worse in some places before they get better.
SHowever, some years back my Spiritual Guidance led me to move here to Taylor
County, and I have great faith that this is a safe place to be in the coming times. Also, I
never forget that once when Jesus was asked about these very times that we are now
living, he said to his followers, "Ten thousand may fall at thy side, but ye shall be lifted
up". He's never lied yet. God bless you all.
Love, Peace, and Harmony
John D. Alexander

Why did you leave your last job?

In all the years I have been
responsible for hiring, I have
seen some really interesting
reasons used for leaving jobs.
Following are some of the
more outlandish, as well as
more acceptable responses to
the question "Why did you
leave your last job?"
Without a doubt, the kookiest
explanation I've seen recently
for leaving a job held for only a
couple of months was
"monetary hiatus." What? If
hired, I can only imagine this
person's creative excuses for
missing work! Another
whopper was from a guy who
was desperate for a job because
he had not worked in several
Song dedicated
to Jerret Williams
Continued from page 1
Headliner Ford came on
stage flashing two fingers in
the air in a trademark bull
horns sign...and had the signs
thrown right back at him from
the sea of fans swaying in front
of the stage.
What followed was a high-
energy run-through of Ford's
favorites including "Ride
Through the Country" and
"Saddle Up."
Ford also dedicated a song to
the late Jerrett Matthew
Williams who died Jan. 1.
"They told me this was one
of your favorite songs and I
know you're listening," Ford
The performer also gave a
"shout out" to the staff at
Goodman's BBQ where he and
his crew had lunch. "It was
great! Thanks, y'all!"

months. His reason for leaving
his last job? "No benefits." I
just could not resist pointing
out that the best benefit I know
of is a paycheck!
Or, how about when
applicants write "personal" in
that box? Most all explanations
of that answer involve not
getting along with someone at
that job. Not good. If that is not
the case, and it is truly
something very personal, write
"will explain."
Although layoff is a very
common answer these days,
keep in mind that local H.R.
people do keep up with area
business news. Noting "layoff"
because you feel that sounds
more acceptable than "quit,"
can definitely backfire on you.
Actually the only acceptable
answer to explain why you left

a job is the truth. Most all of us
have had to find out the hard
way that the grass was not
really greener somewhere else,
and often have regrets about
decisions we have made. Level
with me and we have a much
better chance of working
something out.
My favorite response to this
question in the job history area
of an application? "Still there."
