County seeks state grant for
Keaton Beach Coastal Park
The Taylor County Board of
Commissioners is seeking a
$10,000 grant to help fund
work at the Keaton Beach
The board voted
unanimously Monday evening
to seek the Coastal Partnership
Initiative Grant, which will be

Beach Coastal Park."
The county acquired the 44-
acre park site in 2008 with a $3

the grant, the county committed
to a series of improvements to
the site over a 10-year period.

'Dogs clinch district at Homecoming
BY AARON PORTWOOD
In a fitting conclusion to
Homecoming week and his royal
rushing performance, senior
running back Tony Jackson was
crowned Homecoming King
on the same night he ran for a
season-high 179 yards, broke the
1,000-yard mark and scored his
10th touchdown of the year.
Taylor County improved to
8-0 on the season and 4-0 in
district, clinching the District
2-2B championship and home-
field advantage in the play-offs,
while Fort White fell to 5-3
overall, 3-1 in district and will
take on Starke-Bradford this
week for the district runner-up
title and one remaining playoff
The Bulldog offense gained
a season-high 413 yards and
scored on 6 of 8 possessions
--including a season-high 4

Quarterbacks Eli Grambling (4
of 9 for 106 yards) and William
Wentworth (3 of 6 for 70 yards)
each threw two touchdowns,
while Jackson also completed
a 34-yard pass. Senior James
I ouston lurnedin his best game
of the season with 2 TD catches.
Neither team committed
a turnover (no fumbles or
interceptions), as the Bulldog
offense turned in its second
error-free performance in the
last three games. In fact, Taylor
County did not have a single
fumble or bad snap in the crucial
"We beat a very good football
team in one of the best high
school football games a fan could
ask to watch," Taylor County
Head Coach Shane Boggs said.
"Both teams played as well as
they have all season and neither
team made any major mistakes
"It is pretty fulfilling to win a
game like that against that level
of an opponent. We knew they
were good. You could argue that
they are better than any other
team on our schedule," Boggs
"Offensively, we played our
best game of the season, and it
was really close to being our best
game overall as a team." l3Bogs
said. "Some people could have
said that we had a lot of pressure
on us because this game was
against a great opponent. for the
district title, our Homecoming
game and in fiont of the i icst

have to perform when you are
not prepared. But, 1 didn't feel
we were under a lot of pressure,
because 1 felt as though we were
as prepared as we have been all
season. In fact, instead of being
a distraction, the Homecoming
schedule allowed us to get in
an extra hour of film review on
Boggs said senior center Josh
Wells played the best game of his
career and was the main reason
the Bulldog offense dominated.
Wells had 52 shotgun snaps
without a bad exchange and
"really did a number on his
man," according to Boggs, who
added that Wells was the key
blocker on 12 of Tony Jackson's
Fellow offensive lineman
Blaine Brenner also handled his
assignment and opened holes for
Jackson, while Justin McGuire
and Wells shared "Co-Offensive
Lineman of the Week" honors.
"We only had one play go
for negative yards in the entire
first half, and that is very rare
against a good team. Both of our
quarterbacks played extremely
well. In fact, you could probably
argue that Eli, William, Tony
and James Houston all had their
best games of the season."
However, it was junior wide
receiver James Strawter who was
named the "Offensive Player of
the Game" with 3 catches for 55
yards and I TD.
"He only had three touches,
but he blocked his tail off and we
rin his way most of the night,"
Boggs said, adding that senior
receiver Hunter Barfield graded
out as the team's best receiver
due to his tenacious blocking and
great route running, including a
near touchdown on a deep play-
action pass in the second half.
Meanwhile, the Taylor County
defense turned in another solid
game. After shutting down Fort
\. Ice's powerful rushing attack
:-1-1 0IfiI nl.t two possessions,
the Bulldogs gave up three
straight scores in the second and

Senior linebackers Wesley
Brandon (5 solo tackles, 2 tackles
for loss. 12 assists, 2 sacks),
Jesse Braswell (4 solo tackles,
4 assists) and Jalen Jackson (7
solo. I assist) "played great"
and led the Bulldogs' impressive
defensive effort, which held Fort
White in check all night except
for one long 53-yard pass and a
big 71-yard run by the Indians'
speedy tailback JR Dixon.
Dixon finished with 26 carries
for 137 yards and 1 TD, but was
held to runs of one yard or less
Blount scores 2 TDs
Perry's LeGarrette Blount
had his best outing yet as a pro
running back leading Tampa
Bay to a 38-35 victory over the
Arizona Cardinals Sunday.

instrumental in stopping the
Indians' powerful rushing attack.
"We did give up three scores,
but two of those were simply a
result of them executing well
on offense. However, we did
have a busted coverage and a
defensive breakdown on tlhe
other touchdown, but any time
you hold the best team on your
schedule to just 21 points, you
have to feel pretty good about
your chances," Boggs said.
"'Their offensive line was just
as good as we thought, their
running back was even a little
better than we anticipated and
their QB was way better." Boggs
"As for our special teanis.
on a good note we continue to
perform well on extra point and
field goals and kick protection.
We made all of our kicks and
executed the perfect lake lield
goal for a touchdown. however,
we have got to take more pride oni

Barfield improved to a perfect
7 for 7 on field goals on the
season by nailing a 27-yarder
to cap the Bulldogs' first drive
of the game and later nailed five
extra point kicks to give him a
streak of 29 straight without a
miss this season.

return by Fort White's Dixon

made three straight solo tackles
on Dixon (two for a loss) on the
Indians' first drive of the game to
force a punt.
Boggs dug into his bag of tricks
on the second play of the second
drive, calling for a halfback pass
on which Grambling handed
off to Jackson, who faked a run
before pulling up and launching
a 34-yard pass to a wide-open
Jalen Jackson for a big first
Houston capped the 7-play,
71 -yard drive with a 22-yard TD
catch from Grambling with 4:19

the Bulldogs a 10-0 lead.
The Indians were forced to
punt after a 10-play drive that
managed just 13 yards, thanks
to a pair of penalties and tackles
by J. Jackson. Raydon Parker,
Braswell and Calvin Bass, but
the Taylor offense could not pick
up a first down and also punted.
Tackles by Bass, Brandon,
Braswell and KJ Johnson,
combined with pass break-ups by
Chad Hill and Houston, stopped
the Indians on downs after a 4th

Bulldogs went 3-and-out again,
despite Jackson running for four
yards and catching a six-yard
pass. due to a false start penalty.
Fort While finally got on the
board with a 9-play, 56-yard
drive capped by Dixon's 4-yard
TD run with 26.4 seconds left in
the 2nd quarter.
With their lead cut to three

right back with a touchdown
less than 15 seconds later, as
Strawter returned the kickoff 15
yards. On Ist and 10, Grambling
hit Houston perfectly in stride
on a seam route for a 64-yard
TD. Houston showed his speed
by pulling away from several
defenders and racing to the
endzone untouched with just
11.4 seconds left in the first half.

harness." Unfortunately, one
incident was fatal.
The first victim was an
archery hunter. The 33-year-old
was setting up a ladder stand
and adjusting the strap when the
stand tilted; he fell 17 feet and
broke his leg.
Also last fall, the strap holding
a hunter's climbing stand broke,
and he fell 25 feet, broke an
ankle and had to hobble for
three hours to get help.
Another hunter climbed to
the top rung of her stand ladder
and grabbed something to pull
herself up. It gave, and she fell,
landing flat on her back. She
was airlifted from the woods for
If a tree stand isn't properly
secured to a tree, hunters can
fall to their death, as happened
in the fourth tree stand
Despite these tragedies, the
good news is that education
is paying off. According to
the FWC's 2009-2010 Florida
Hunting Incident Report, the
number of hunting incidents
and fatalities per 100,000
hunting licenses generally
decreased from 1980 to 2010--
the decreases showing up after
mandatory hunter education
began in 1991 for everyone 16
years old or older and born after
May 31, 1975.

I am amazed I am still here.
Eleven years ago, my only living
parent was diagnosed with breast
cancer and my world deflated like a
balloon without a knot.
After sputtering and zooming around
my head, the deflated world which laid
flat on the sidewalk, prompted me to
focus on next steps which are all too
familiar for too many people.
I suffered with a headache, dry heaves
and a certainty of Life Gone Wrong.
My mother, on the other hand, had a
mastectomy and took two aspirin.
Her next five years were spent well,
making sure she participated in as
many fun events with friends and
grandchildren that the calendar would
But those last few weeks, as I sat in
various vinyl chairs in various hospital
rooms, I grieved for her and for myself.
I also considered the distinct possibility
that this would be my fate, too.
After all, I'm an only child. There's
no one to dilute the gene pool--I get all
the markers for everything. With two
parents who died of cancer, my odds
So I prayed nightly that I would see
my youngest child graduate from high
school for I had a friend who wasn't
This June, that glorious occasion
took place and I didn't die of heat
stroke from participating in the
commencement excercises, which was
remarkable, too. It was 100 degrees in
the shade at Dorsett Stadium.
The next morning, I woke up feeling
fine. So the husband I took a "Thank
God He Graduated" trip--just the two
of us--and I bought a new car for my
e With Limits
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
The following week, I was still here.
I haven't quit my job; I still clean the
toilets and pay for car insurance.
But, in the back of my mind, the
possibility remains. A doctor friend,
who keeps me grounded, once said: "If
you don't die of cancer, you'll die of a
heart attack, or a stroke, and you don't
get to pick."
The strangest phenomenon of my
new life is acceptance of Life With
Limits. I never wanted to become
Aunt Velma who sat at the head of a
mahogany dining table each December
and said in a crackling, pitiful voice,
"This may be my last Christmas." It was
embarrassing because she out-lived her
husband and six siblings. Nobody was
sympathetic; they didn't want to hear
I don't want to be Aunt Velma.
I don't want to be caught off-guard,
I'm going to the doctor for regular
I'm eating fresh fruits and whole
grains, but I've decided I'd rather
shorten my life by six months than give
up sweet tea and Coca-Cola. I'll give up
another six for milk chocolate.
I'm now back to my original belief
that I could live to be 90. So I'm
looking toward my next 45 years with
gratitude, but I can't help but marvel at
how peculiar it is that I really started
"living in the moment" when I endured
the deaths of my parents.
In birth, they gave me life.
In death, strangely enough, they gave
me a better appreciation of it.

With so many advertising
mediums dividing the attention of
potential customers, newspapers remain
the most effective source
for reaching consumers.
Simply put, newspapers reach more
people, more often. Highly portable
and highly visible, newspaper ads go
with people and stay with them.
That means your business is more likely to
be on their minds when they're in the market
for related products or services.
When it comes to spending
your advertising dollars, make the
choice that's tried and true: newspaper
advertising works harder for you.

November means the 2010-11
huntin' season's in full swing. I
will cover most everything you
need to know about general
gun, fall turkey, quail and gray
squirrel, snipe and the second
phase of mourning and white-
winged dove season.
The first thing you need to do
is pick up a $17 Florida resident
hunting license. Nonresidents
pay $46.50 for a 10-day license
or $151.50 for 12 months.
If you plan to hunt one
of Florida's many wildlife
management areas (WMAs),
you'll also need a $26.50
management area permit,
but don't forget to study the
brochure for the specific area
you plan to hunt because dates,
bag limits and rules differ
greatly from area to area.
You can get these brochures
at tax collectors' offices
and regional Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) offices in
close proximity to the WMA,
or you can download them from
You can buy your license and
permits by calling 888-HUNT-
FLORIDA or online at www.
your credit card ready. You
also can purchase them from
tax collectors' offices and most
retail outlets that sell hunting
and fishing supplies.
The general gun season runs
Nov. 6 Jan. 23 in Zone C; Dec.
4 Feb. 20 in Zone B; and in
Zone A the second phase of
general gun season runs Nov.
20 Jan. 2. In Zone D, it starts
Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 25)
and lasts four days until Nov.
28. Two weeks later, the season
reopens Dec. 11 and runs
through Feb. 20.
IHunters can take bucks
having at least one antler 5
inches or longer, but starting
this year, anyone hunting deer
in Florida must have the new $5'
deer permit. On private lands,
the daily bag limit for deer is
On private lands, hunters can
take wild hogs year-round with
no bag or size limits. On most
--but not all--WMAs, there's
also no bag or size limit on
wild hogs, and hunters can take
them during any hunting season
except spring turkey. Check the
WMA brochure to be certain.
The highly anticipated
antlerless deer season, often
called "doe week," is Nov.
20-26 (Thanksgiving week)
in zones A and C, and Dec. 26
- Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in
zones B and D.
During doe week, the daily
bag limit's one buck and one
doe, or two bucks. You may
not take two does in one day
like you can during archery
season, and spotted fawns are
never legal game. And by the
way, WMAs do not have an
antlerless deer season.
If you hunt with deer
dogs anywhere in Florida,
special' rules and registration
requirements may apply, so call
the FWC for details.
Fall turkey season in Zone A
is Nov. 20 Jan. 2. In zones B
and C. it runs Dec. 4 Jan. 30
and Nov. 6 Jan. 2, respectively.
And in Zone D, fall turkey
season is Nov. 25-28 and Dec.
11 Jan. 16. Only bearded
turkeys and gobblers are legal
game, and you must have a $10
turkey permit to hunt them. The
bag limit's one bird per day. and
a total of two during the archery.
gun and fall turkey seasons
It's also against the law to
hunt turkeys in Holmes County
during the fall season.
Quail and gray squirrel season
runs statewide Nov. 13 March
6. There's a daily bag limit of
12 for each. but shooting fox
squirrels is against the law.
Shooting hours for deer,
turkeys, quail and gray squirrels
is a half-hour before sunrise to a
half-hour after sunset. All legal
rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders,
bows, crossbows and pistols
are legal for taking these
resident game animals during
the general gun, antlerless deer,
fall turkey, and quail and gray
Snipe hunting in Florida
ranks second in the nation in
number of birds harvested each
year, and the season runs Nov. 1
- Feb. 15 statewide. The second
phase of the mourning and
white-winged dove season also
comes in this month and runs
Nov. 13-28. Shooting hours
for migratory game birds are
one-half hour before sunrise to
sunset. The bag limit for snipe
is eight: and for doves, the bag
limit is 15.
You must get a no-cost
migratory bird permit if you
plan to hunt snipe, doves or any
other migratory game birds.
The FWC even provides an
online "Dove Hunters' Hotline"
that gives up-to-date information
on Florida's public dove fields.
The address is MyFWC.comi
Dove, and it's updated every
Thursday throughout the dove
season. Information includes
dove densities, previous week's
harvests and field conditions.

Hunting season dates on the move
Although hunting season
dates for wildlife management
areas are slightly out of sync
with the zonal hunt dates on
private lands, the situation is
only temporary. By next year,
hunting season dates will be
more closely aligned with the
rut the period when deer are
In February 2010, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) voted to
realign the state's deer hunting
zones, including creation of a
fourth zone. The zones have
been renamed A-D.
Most of the former Northwest
Hunting Zone is now Zone D.
The Central Zone was renamed
The line dividing zones C
and D begins at U.S. 27 at the
Gadsden County-Georgia stale
line and runs south on U.S. 27
until it meets State Road 61
in Tallahassee. From there it
follows S.R. 61, running south
until it hits U.S. 319. It follows
U.S. 319 south to U.S. 98; then
east along U.S. 98 before turning
south on Spring Creek Highway
and continuing to the Gulf of
"The changes to the state's
hunting zones align the deer
hunting seasons more closely
with the rut," said Cory Morea,
deer management coordinator for
the FWC's Division of Hunting
and Game Management.
The new deer hunting zones
and season dates for private lands
are in the 2010-2011 Florida
Hunting Regulations handbook,
as well as online at MyFWC.
corn/Hunting. However, some
hunters are asking the FWC why
wildlife management area hunt
dates are slightly out of sync
with the zonal hunt dates.
"Adjusting hunting season
dates was designed to be a two-
phase project," Morea said. "In
2009, FWC staff worked with
stakeholders, held several public
meetings and incorporated
public comments to adjust
zones and zonal seasons. We
have since been working with
stakeholders, cooperators and
the public on adjusting seasons
"You can call thisa'transitional
year.' The 2011-2012 deer
hunting seasons on WMAs will
more closely match the dates for
the new statewide zones," Morea
added. "However, there still will
be some differences between
WMAs and zonal seasons, since
hunter preferences are being
used to set season dates."
In 2008, the FWC approved
a new deer management plan
that outlines a 10-year strategic
direction. The adoption of new
deer hunting zones and seasons
is the latest of a number of
projects related to the plan. The
entire plan, including proposed
season dates for 201 1-12, can be
viewed at MyFWC.com/Deer.
seasons to be expanded
by a month beginning in July 2011
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
(FWC) has passed a new rule
that will extend zonal crossbow
seasons by a month, thereby
running concurrently with
archery season, beginning July
The FWC received requests
from Florida hunters who
want more crossbow-hunting
opportunities not only more
hunting days, but also to be
allowed to take deer of either
sex, which is legal in many
other states, including Georgia
Because of the request, the
FWC checked with Florida's
hunters through an online
poll, and more than 70 percent
of those who responded
supported increasing crossbow
opportunities on private lands.
The new rule adds 30 days to
the crossbow season in zones
A, B and C, and it adds 33 days
in Zone D, thereby making
it coincide with the archery
Starting with the 2011-2012
hunting season, any hunter with
a hunting license, deer permit
and crossbow permit will be
able to get in the woods a month
early on private lands and use
a crossbow (or a bow) to take
deer of either sex.
This rule is intended to give
hunters more opportunities and
enable youths and others who
have difficulty using a vertical
how to have more hunting days,
thereby helping to recruit and
retain more people into the
tradition of hunting.
Ihe commission also passed
another rule that limits the

When the : l,11 hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this iight. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?
Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with
the cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And
they worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and
shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses
open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could support
Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? V'.'elI, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are :- ill here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

you still need help, please ( ili 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If
