Charges are pending against
a driver involved in back-to-
back automobile crashes
Monday morning, Aug. 24.
Corine M. Coxville, 25, was
first involved in a hit-and-run
crash at County Road 30 and
U.S. Highway 19, around
10 a.m.
The Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) reported that Coxville,
driving a four-door 1993
Chevrolet car, backed into
2007 Cheyrolet truck driven by
Donald Everett, 49.
The right rear of Coxville's
car collided with the right front
of Everett's truck.
"Coxville fled the scene after
the collision," Trooper William
Ernst stated.
Just 15 minutes later, while
in the process of investigating
the hit-and-run, Ernst was
notified of a second crash near
the intersection of Puckett
Road and Potts-Still Road,
Upon arriving at the scene,
he discovered that the vehicle
and driver in that crash were
also the fleeing vehicle and
driver of the hit-and-run.
The wreck on Puckett Road
happened as Coxville turned
left onto Charles Hendry Road,
making a U-turn in front of a
2000 Ford truck driven by
Erma Lewis, 65, of Perry. '*
The front of the truck hit the
left front of Coxville's car,
which then rotated clockwise,
crossed both lanes of traffic
and crashed into a tree on the
east shoulder of Puckett Road.
"Vehicle 1 (Coxville)
violated vehicle 2's right-of-
way by attempting to re-enter
Puckett Road," the FHP report
Lewis' vehicle came to a
final rest on the west shoulder
of the road. Neither she nor her
passenger, Linda Straka,

Although many property
values in the county have fallen
over the past year, Property
Appraiser Bruce Ratliff said
Tuesday that property values
are not falling uniformly across
the county and in some areas
not at all.
The county, city and school
district have all set their
proposed millage rates as part
of their budget processes, and
will formally adopt them in
September. Although they will
have the option to either keep
the rates the same or lower

them at the upcoming hearings,
they will not be able to raise tax
levels this year from the
proposed rates.
The Taylor County
Commission adopted the same
millage rates as last year,
meaning residents whose
properties have not changed in
value will see their county tax
bills stay the same.
The Perry City Council,
however, has adopted the
rollback rate, which is the
millage rate that would produce
the same amount of revenue as
last year, taking into account

changes in property values.
Normally, this would result in a
millage rate decrease, as
property values had been on the
rise. This year, however, it will
result in a slight millage
increase, meaning those
property owners whose values
did not change this year will
see an increase on their city tax
The school 'district - has
several millage rates, but they
can be combined in two groups:
discretionary and required
effort. The first is set by the
local school board, while the

second is set on the state level.
The district's discretionary
millage rate is up very slightly,
while the state mandated tax
rate is increasing significantly--
about four times all of the other
raises combined.
The proposed millage rate for
the SRWMD is set to remain
the same as last year.
As usual, homesteaded
property owners will receive a
$25,000 exemption on all
property taxes. School districts,
however, are exempt from the

One driver, two crashes
Emergency workers prepare to move two persons injured.in a traffic crash Monday morning on Puckett Road.
Neither of the individuals was wearing a seatbelt. The driver, Corine Coxville, also faces charges in a hit-and-
run crash that occurred just 15 minutes prior this one, near the intersection of County Road 30 and
U.S. Highway 19.

Traffic snarls mark beginning

of Taylor's '09-10 school year

The 2009-10 school year
got off to a somewhat smooth
start Monday--regular traffic
snarls notwithstanding.
"I have talked to the
principals at each school site
and they all said they had a
very good morning, a very
good start," Superintendent
of Schools Paul Dyal said.
"There were no major
issues with the early morning
transportation, but yesterday
afternoon (Monday) we had
some glitches...which we
normally do on the first day
of school."
Monday marked the
beginning of a new schedule
for Taylor County schools,
with classes at the primary
and elementary level
beginning at around 7:45
a.m. and staggered classes at
the middle and high schools
starting at 8 or 9 a.m.,
"I would like to continue to
encourage parents to be
patient as we work through
any transportation issues.
Please make sure that your
students--especially primary
and elementary students--

know their bus numbers,"
Dyal said.
On a positive note, he
added that due to the

New health safety measures were put into place for the 2009-10 school
year, including the use of hand sanitizer in the classroom. The new
procedure was implemented to help prevent the spread of the H1N1 virus.

Two public hearings

planned on proposed

railroad extension
The Taylor County Commission will hold two public hearings
before it decides whether to apply for some $50 million in federal
stimulus funds to construct a 25-mile rail extension to serve
aggregate rock mines in the western side of the county.
The board held a special meeting Thursday to consider whether
or not to apply for a U.S. Department of Transportation
Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery
(TIGER) program grant to fund the project.
At the start of the meeting, however, Commission Chairman
Rudolph Parker said the board's grant policy called for two public
hearings prior to applying for such a grant.
It was later determined one of the dates chosen at Thursday's
meeting for the public hearings did not allow for enough notice as
required by the policy, so the commission convened a special
meeting Tuesday afternoon to adopt new dates.

Dear Editor:
I am one of the mob, who
is "un-American" enough
to disagree with Obama and
I was also at the town hall
meeting last week.
Allen Boyd did give a speech
that, basically, told us, he wanted
us to sit down and be quiet and
not make any noise. Mark Viola
said Boyd "turned the mike
over to the audience." That
was not true. Boyd did ask for
questions but when anyone

touched the mike to hold it
where we could hear, Boyd
actually snatched it away from
Then he only answered about
two questions. The rest of the
time, he would say, "that's a
good question," or "I'm glad
you asked that" and then would
ramble on and not answer, just
like Obama.
He was asked several
times, if he had read the bill
and he never answered that

We, the taxpayers, probably
paid him about $10,000 for
that hour and a half and it was
totally wasted.
If everyone will stick together,
we can get him replaced--
voted out next election. He
is an Obama puppet, just like
a lot of other senators and
congresspeople. They don't
care what we want.
They seem to have forgotten,
they are supposed to work for
us. I won't forget.

Midweek Muddle prompts letter

Dear Editor:
I am prompted to write the
editor for the first time in a
long, long time because of Mrs.
Lincoln's recent Muddle that
appeared in the Aug. 19 issue of
the Taco Times.
I judge this Muddle to be
her personal best. I chuckled,
laughed, read parts to my
significant other, and came to
the verge of a giggle. Having

choked back the giggling urge,
I re-read the article and said,
I feel that it is unfortunate
that Mrs. Lincoln is not a
syndicated columnist and that
this Muddle was not spread
across the country. This article
should be in every home, school
and maybe in Sunday sermons
throughout the land.

I've always heard that visualizing
success is important in one's quest
for it. Last week, as I stepped off
my lap at the new Taylor County
Sports Complex with 250 other
individuals participating in Taylor
County Walks, I visualized pounds
dropping along the way, onto the
pavement, into the ditches.
Rolling onto the baseball fields.
Bouncing with the soccer balls.
Landing in the trees.
Hopping over the fences.
I also visualized a svelte ,,self
emerging from that lap, and my
lap perhaps looking more like it
did when I was 18 and complained
that my bones protruded. (Bless my
I visualized my skin looking
healthy, my hair becoming shiny,
my calves and my biceps assuming
a sculpted look.
Then I got back to my car and,
excuse me, but I looked like hell.
There's something about Florida
humidity, combined with 90-degree
temperatures, which produces a
look of deathly exhaustion.
Not health.
Not vigor.
Not vibrancy.
I was a mess.
But lo, my heart only trembled
momentarily because I had a new
pedometer, and with it, I could
determine how many calories I
� The news was good. I had
burned 1285 calories which meant
that everything I ate that day was
nothing but a sweet memory.
What joy consumed my soul as I
looked at my red face and realized
it was worth it!
The husband and son were taking
me out to eat that night--since I was
absent from the kitchen in order
to participate in the 5:30 kick-off
of this fitness event. I declared on
the way to the restaurant, "Look, I
burned 1285 calories."
The husband eyed me with
disbelief while driving.
The son said, "No way." Then
he took my pedometer from me
and said, "There's a decimal...you
burned 128.5 calories."
I was downcast.
"One Coca-Cola," said the

&lor County

Iks WI
husband, laughing as he drove.
"Is that possible?" I asked. The
pedometer didn't lie: two miles,
128 calories---or if you rounded it
up (and I did), 129 calories.
"I really thought...." I said, with
my energy and the story trailing
into nothingness.
To cheer me up, the husband told
me a story. It was about a recent
Kiwanis Club meeting in which the
topic of Walking for Your Health
was spotlighted. The speaker
-'maing n thtet fto eyery, hour
of vigorous exercise (like brisk
walking), you added two hours to
your life.
He looked across the table and
saw one of his mathematically
inclined friends working on a
logarithm which would have made
Albert Einstein proud.
This friend was in the midst of
long division...really long division.
His eyebrows were scrunched, his
focus was intent, his objective was
clear. Was it worth it?
By the end of the meeting, he had
determined that by walking for the
next 20 years, he could add five
months to his life.
There are many ways to look at
that time frame: it's another football
season, perhaps another child's
wedding, or another grandchild's
Or it was five fewer months on the
lawn mower and at the office.
So he leaned back in his chair,
longed for his recliner and said
with contentment, "I'll take -my
Clearly, the numbers won't
necessarily put you at the track,
but the prospect of overall fitness
might. Walking is said to be
excellent exercise, good for your
general health--and one that is
least likely to be abandoned. Plus,
that feel good hormone, which is
supposed to kick in, might follow
you home. Or the realization that
you're earning your soft drinks
could make all the difference.
Visualizing your fitness?
Long division is more scientific.
But imagining those pounds

He added that the rail project
would not require any land use

constructed on an existing

environmental impacts have
been minimized.
According to Breer. Georgia

Bender said the value of the
Perry Pines mine would be
between $30 million and $50
million, which would be added
to the county's tax rolls.
The question was also raised
whether the county would have
to issue an request for
proposals to determine which
company it chose to construct
the new rail and upgrade the
existing line.
Bende, said the county
would not receive word until

Bulldogs face Mayo in

warm-up game Friday

A-6 Taco Times August 26,2009

Taylor County High football
fans can get an early look at
the 2009 team this Friday night
in Mayo as the Bulldogs take
on Lafayette County in a pre-
season classic game. Kickoff is
set for 7:30 p.m.
First-year TCHS Coach Shane
Boggs, with spring practice and
summer drills behind him, will
match wits with Hornet Coach
Joey Pearson.
Pearson, who is beginning
his 11th year at the Lafayette
County helm, led his team to
a perfect 10-0 regular season
record last year before falling in
the state 1-A playoffs.
But gone from that team are
numerous big guns including
four that are now playing major
college football.
The Hornets do return all-state
quarterback Nick Bracewell
this season. The 6-3, 210-pound
senior threw for 2,262 yards last
year including 31 touchdowns.
The Bulldogs can look for
Arthur Sellers and Alan Driver
to run the ball out of the Pro-I
formation. Brooks Laminack
appears to be Bracewell's top
returning receiver with Jamal
Reid now playing at Miami.
Reid accounted for more than
half of Bracewell's passing
yards and touchdowns last
On defense the Hornets run
out of a 3-5 set and are looking
to 6-3, 220-pound senior
defensive end Aaron Goyette
and 6-1, 250-pound lineman
Troy Folds to anchor it. Driver
is expected to be a key player at
Taylor County will counter
with a rejuvenated program
under Boggs that has numerous
new coaches, a lot more players
to, choose, from. and new looks
on both offense and defense.' "
In addition to his head-
coaching duties, Boggs will
serve as offensive coordinator

Operating from Keaton Beach Marina

as well as runningback and
quarterback coach.
Chris Leaty, a former player
for Boggs at North Florida
Christian, will handle the
offensive line and Reggie
Wentworth and Jonathan Mauk
are in charge of the receivers.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) wants to hear from
hunters around the state
regarding "when" they think the
white-tailed deer rut happens in
their neck of the woods.
The FWC, along with its
deer management stakeholder
group, is considering making
possible changes to Florida's
deer hunting zones and
corresponding season dates.
The first goal of the "Strategic
Plan for Deer Management
in Florida 2008-2018" is to
manage deer at a more local
level and better align hunting
season dates with peak rutting
(breeding) activity.
The FWC has deer-breeding
information from many counties
and several of its wildlife
management areas, but there are
gaps in the biological data. The
deer management stakeholder
group would like to obtain rut
intirmaort' from htinters to fiy.
and close gaps in the data.
The agency recognizes the
value of local knowledge and
is asking hunters who are
familiar with when the deer rut
historically occurs in the areas
where they hunt to fill out an
online survey. The FWC would
like to take this information to
compare hunters' perceptions of
the rut with scientifically known
conception data.
During rutting periods, bucks
are more active during daylight
(shooting) hours and often
less cautious, making the
chances of seeing them in the
field better.
"Deer hunters want to hunt
during the rut, and we want to
be able to share comprehensive
information about when the rut
occurs with the hunting public,"

comes to Taylor County after
serving six years as head coach
at Trinity Christian in Dublin,
Ga. Price led Trinity to a 51-
24 record over his six seasons
including two state titles in
2004 and 2006. He will also be
coaching the linebackers in his
5-2 scheme.
Ed Harvey returns to coach
the defensive line along with
Jimmy Blair. David Gray
returns to coach the defensive
The Bulldogs open the regular
season on Sept. 4 at Wakulla.

FWC biologist and deer team
coordinator Cory Morea said.
"We realize a lot of hunters
know when the rut happens in
their area, and we want to take
this information and compare it
with our conception data to see
if they are similar. It would be
great to be able to use any new
data to help fill in the holes in
what we already know.
"At the very least, we think
there is value in knowing what
hunters perceive as the peak of
the rut: where they hunt," Morea
To fill out the deer rut
survey, see the latest updates
on proposed deer zones and
season dates or to comment on

Mamna, you left this world a year ago today, but
each day we still see your smiling face. We knew how
you loved your flower garden, but know you are in
God's heavenly garden where the flowers never die.
We know you are in that beautifid place called
Heaven, and some sweet day we will again see your
smiling face.
We were with you when God called you home. We
watched you slowly slip away. God broke our hearts
