For Memorial Day 2009 shooting death

Lee pleads 'no contest' to murder

Staff writer
When Rufus Lee, 26, entered
the card room at Daddy's Place
on Memorial Day 2009, he was
armed and dangerous.
His intent, as relayed to a
friend, was to rob Archie
He circled the room once to
verify the location of his target,
returned to the doorway
and--without saying a
word--fired a single shot,

striking Jackson in the chest.
A second man in the room,
Henry Hughes Jr., 19, tried to
run to safety through the
doorway. A struggle ensued and
he received a fatal gunshot
wound to the head.
Jackson pretended to be dead
in order to keep from being
shot again, even as a second
suspect (Isaac Jackson II, 31)
.rifled through his pockets,
taking an undisclosed amount
of money.

Hughes was found with his
pockets turned out and no
money on his person.
According to prosecutors,
this was the scene which would
have been laid out for a jury
based on evidence collected
during an intensive
investigation by the Perry
Police Department which
followed the violent robbery.
However, thanks to a plea
agreement reached with Lee
shortly before jury selection

" was to begin Monday morning,
Nov. 29, the families of the
victims may now, have a
measure of closure, *
The surviving victim,
Jackson, and members of the
Hughes family were on hand
when the plea agreement was
made before Judge James
"Roy" Bean.
Lee pled "no contest" to a
lesser count of murder in the
second degree with a firearm,
armed robbery with a firearm

and attempted murder. He was
sentenced to 40 years in prison
and must serve a
minimum/mandatory sentence
of 25 years,
He is expected to be in the
custody of the Department of
Corrections within the next two
to three days.
Lee also pled no contest to a
fourth count of possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon

State approves

Pruitt project

at Dekle Beach

In the trees
One person was seriously injured in a crash.that occurred Tuesday morning
around 10:3,0 a.m. on U.S. Hwy. 27. Personnel from the Taylor County Sheriff's
Office, Taylor County Fire/Rescue, Doctors' Memorial Hospital Emergency
Medical Services and the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene. Neither
the cause of the crash or the identity of those involved were available at presstime.
The crash happened approximately one mile east of County Road 30.

It's taken three attempts and
several years, but state officials
have signed off on a pair
of comprehensive plan
amendments for Dr. J. Crayton
pruitt's planned golf resort
project, The Reserve at
Sweetwater Estury.
.The Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA)
issued its notice of intent last
week to find-the amendments
in compliance with state
The developers behind the
planned resort requested two
amendments to :teate a .,new
future land use category on
Pruitt's 1-,291-acre property
situated along Dekle Beach
Road and County Road 361.,
Taylor County
Commissioners first approved
the amendments in May, when
they agreed to transmit the

applications to DCA for
review; The state agency raised
five objections in July, and
representatives from the
county, the development and
DCA spent several months in
talks in an attempt to work
through the issues.
In October, the commission
held a second public hearing to
consider the amendments with
several changes along with
additional supporting material
requested by DCA and the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
The major substantive
change, to the language
disallowed silviculture uses on
areas designated conservation
in the plan, which is 1,107
acres, or 78 percent of the

What's that roar? Buckeye letting off steam...

While finalizing the
installation of its new energy-
saving project, Buckeye plans
to vent steam to the atmosphere
this week in preparation for
placing the plant's new
condensing turbine in operation
during December.

A plant spokesperson said the
steam venting will result in a
loud roar that may be audible
for several miles depending on
wind conditions.
The steam venting is planned
to occur Wednesday, Dec. 1,
between noon and 8 p.m. The

purpose of the high-pressure
venting is to ensure there is no
debris in the new steam lines
prior to directing steam through
the condensing turbine. Each
venting is expected to last up to
15 minutes. The venting is part
of the start-up process and will

not be an ongoing event.
The $49 million energy
project has been underway for
the past 'two years, and will
enable the ... cellulose
manufacturing plant to produce
an additional 12 megawatts of
electricity from .renewable

biomass. Once the project is in
full operation, Buckeye will
make 95 percent of its normal
energy needs from biomass.
The electricity will be used on
site. Anyone with questions
concerning the venting should
call the company at 838-7121.

2010 hurricane season spares Taylor

The 2010 Atlantic Hurricane
Season was one of the most
active on record, but despite 19
named storms, Taylor County
was spared from its wrath,
along with most of the United
The hurricane season, which
began June 1 and ended
Tuesday, is tied for the third
most storms with 1887 and
1995, according to the National
Hurricane Center (NHC).
Twelve of the 19 named
storms reached hurricane
strength and five of those were
considered major hurricanes
(Category 3 or higher).
The NHC blamed the active
season on warm Atlantic waters
combined with favorable winds
coming off the African coast.
These were helped by La Nifia,
which reduced wind sheer.
Fortunately for Florida,
however, NHC officials said
the jet stream's position this
season contributed to warm and
dry conditions along the eastern
United States, which acted as a
barrier keeping many storms
over open water. Additionally,
since many of this year's storms
formed in the eastern Atlantic,
most curved northward and
then away long before
approaching land.
"The forecasters were right,"
said Taylor County Director of
Public Safety Jeff Manning. "It
was one of the busiest years on
record. It just wasn't busy for
"In fact, the U.S. as a whole
pretty much dodged a bullet.

Everything went south of us."
Manning added that he is
concerned that the fortunate
result of this season will lead
Taylor County residents to pay
less attention next year.
"Emergency managers are
always trying to strike a

balance from not crying wolf
too often and keeping people
on their toes," he said.
"We may have dodged a
bullet this year, but that doesn't
mean we will next year.
Hopefully we will."
As for this season, the only

named storm to directly impact
Florida was Tropical Storm
Bonnie, which made landfall
on the southeastern cast of the;:
state on July 22. The storin..
crossed over into the Gif ibf ~f
Mexico, where it dissipated.
The storm caused little

damage in Florida, but was
responsible for significantly
more damage as a rain-
prosducer in'Louisiana, where
hundreds of thousands of
dollars in damage were
reported due to flooding.
Closer to Taylor County was
Tropical Depression 5, which
developed off the west coast of
Florida near Ft. Myers and
traveled northwesterly before
Making landfall in Louisiana on
"Aug, '12 The system traveled
over land before emerging into
the Gulf through the Florida
Panhandle. Although it did not
redevelop, the system
ultimately came ashore in
Mississippi, near its original
Texas was the most impacted
U.S. state this season, as it was
grazed by Hurricane Alex in
June, producing significant
rainfall, while Tropical Storm
Hermine made landfall in
extreme north Mexico in
September before traveling
through the state.
While the U.S. was mostly
spared, the 2010 Hurricane
Season still took its toll in both
lives and property damage,
having been blamed for 259
deaths through the U.S.,
Caribbean and Central America
along with more than $11
billion in damages.
Hurricane Tomas has also
been implicated in exacerbating
the cholera outbreak in
earthquake-ravaged Haiti,
which has claimed hundreds of

Lee was fined $10,000 and
ordered to pay nearly $3,000 in
related court costs.

with murder in the first degree,

Prosecuting Assistant State
Attorney Dave Phelps noted
that the role of the second
suspect in the case, (Isaac)
Jackson, appeared to be in
support of the robbery.
"And he was convicted on
that charge," Phelps said.
(Jackson pled no contest to a
charge 6f armed robbery in
September and was sentenced
to 10 years in prison followed
by 15 years of probation.)

Group student exchange
Tallahassee resident and United Way employee Alison Dodson recently visited the
Perry Rotary Club to talk about her experiences with the Rotary Group Study
Exchange Program. The international program is a cultural and vocational
exchange opportunity for business people and professionals between the ages of 25
and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers. The program provides travel
grants for teams to exchange visits in paired areas of different countries. Alison
and her group traveled to India, while a group from there visited here. For four to
six weeks, team members experienced the host country's culture and institutions,
observed how their vocations are practiced abroad, developed personal and
professional relationships and exchanged ideas. During her talk, Dodson described
her experiences, including assisting with a Rotary fresh-water well project for a
remote village in India. She is shown with Rotary President Debbie Bassett, left.

'Dogs f

Pensacola Catholic knocked
the Taylor County Bulldogs out
of the Class 2B playoffs for the
second straight season Friday
night in Dorsett Stadium as the
Crusaders dominated the line of
scrimmage on both sides of the
ball and held the Bulldogs to
only one touchdown in a 14-7
defensive struggle played in a
steady rain.
In stark contrast to last year's
!,111111_ 41-35 offensive shoot-
out in Pensacola, this year's
contest saw Pensacola Catholic
and Taylor County turn to their
ground games, combining to
run the ball 84 times while
completing a total of 3 passes for
30 yards the entire game.
With wind and rain hampering
the passing game, both teams
were held to season-lows for
points scored. After giving up
rushing touchdowns in the first

The Crusaders stopped the
Bulldogs from running inside
with 6-5, 255-pound senior
defensive lineman D.J. Pettway
(who has already committed
to play at Alabama), while
Pensacola's linebackers,
including 6-3, 210-pound
senior Demarius Ransifer (who
has offers from Kentucky,
Mississippi, UCF, South
Alabama and West Virginia),
were fast enough to stop the
Bulldogs' option and speed
sweep plays to the outside.
Bulldog senior tailback Tony
Jackson was prevented from
turning the corner and using his
breakaway speed while being
held to a season-low 34 yards on
15 carries.
The Bulldog offense finished
with only 63 yards rushing on
30 carries (2.1 yards per carry)
on the night, while Taylor's

Taylor County's spread
offense and option rushing attack
came into the game averaging
33 points and over 313 yards
per game, but was held to only 7
points and 89 total yards, as the
Bulldogs' top playmakers were
unable to come up with big plays
when they needed it most.
'They were a great football
team, and we didn't play our best.
I didn't coach my best, and we
didn't come up with the big plays
like we needed to. We had some
chances, but we didn't capitalize
on them," Bulldogs' Head Coach
Shane Boggs said. "The margin
of error is very small when you
play a good team like this at this

Taylor County gained 62 of
their 89 total yards in the game on
the first drive and were actually
held to only 59 yards in the first
half. Positive plays were even
harder to come by in the second
half, as the Bulldogs managed
30 total yards (20 coming on one
sweep play by Tevin Jones).
Meanwhile, the Crusaders
employed their bigger, stronger
offensive line--led by 6-4,
305-pound offensive tackle
James Elliott (recruited by
Michigan, Kansas, Vanderbilt
and 14 other schools)--to clear
the way for a pair of Vanderbilt
commitments who pounded the
ball up the middle, averaging 4
yards per carry on the ground (54
carries for 211 yards, 2 TDs).
Pensacola Catholic's senior

runningback Marquis Sumler (5-
9, 180-pounds) and QB Shaun
White (6-0. 195 pounds) both
committed to play for Vanderbilt
University on Thanksgiving Day.
The following night they
combined to lead the Crusaders
to victory over the Bulldogs.
Sumler, who has rushed for more
than 1,000 yards each of the last
three seasons (1,436 yards and
26 TDs this year), finished the
game with 27 carries for 157
yards and 2 TDs.
White, who passed for nearly
3,000 yards and 27 TDs as a
junior and added another 1,917
yards and 13 TDs this season,
abandoned the passing game
against the Bulldogs, completing
only 1 of 4 passes for 4 yards
with an interception.
The conditions were dry when
the game got underway, and the
packed Dorsett Stadium crowd
saw both teams score on their
opening drives of the first quarter.
Pensacola quickly drove
73 yards in 8 plays, capped
by Sumler's 29-yard TD run
with 8:49 remaining in the first
The drive featured four carries
by Sumler, who ripped off gains
of 12, 8, 2 and 29 yards, and
two QB keepers by White, who
finished the game with 8 carries
for 18 yards.
"We did not expect their
offensive and defensive lines
to be able to dominate like they
did. Having Justin McGuire out
with an injury hurt us. Then we
had Calvin Bass (who filled in
for McGuire and played on the
defensive line) playing with a
sprained ankle for almost the
entire game, and almost every
one of our skill players got
banged up at some point in the"
game," Boggs added.
In addition to Bass, the
Bulldogs were hampered by
top offensive and defensive
playmakers Jalen Jackson, Tevin
Jones, James Houston and Tony
Jackson all playing through
various minor injuries suffered
during the game.
On their first series of the
game, the Bulldogs drove 62
yards in 11 plays before tying the
game with 2:50 remaining in the
first quarter.
After running the option on
9 of their first 10 plays, QB Eli
Grambling (1 of 7, 25 yards, 1
TD, 1 int.) threw a strike to senior
receiver Tevin Jones, threading a
perfect seam pass through tight
coverage for a 25-yard TD that
tied the score at 7-7.
However, the Bulldog offense
was held scoreless for the final

Bulldogs record their

best season since '97

Taylor County finished the
2010 season with an 11-1 record
and made it to the second round
of the playoffs to finish among
the top 8 teams in Florida's
Class 2B.
It is the best season and first
district championship since the
school's 13-2 record on the way
to capturing district and state
championship titles in 1997.
The Taylor County Bulldogs
began the turnaround last year
under new Head Coach Shane

Boggs, who stopped a skid of
four straight 3-7 seasons with a
7-3 regular season and the first
playoff appearance since 2005.
The 2009 Bulldogs (7-4)
recorded the most wins since
the 1997 state championship
season, advanced to the play-
offs for the first time since 2005
(a 4-7 season) and just the third
time since 1997. In 1998 the
Bulldogs finished 3-8 after a
first round play-off loss.
This year Boggs' Dogs did

one better and completed a
first-ever undefeated 10-0
regular season (improving
on 9-0 marks set in 1968 and
1969) and made it to the second
round of the playoffs, where
the Bulldogs again fell by just
one touchdown to Pensacola

back to the field and find an

seniors from football including
Chad Ellis, Sergio Villagomez,

ball in front of goal only two
minutes after entering the game.
Chris Davis got the assist.
Soon after, Villagomez made
his return known as Ellis sent

a great cross and Sergio buried

The Bulldogs led 2-0 going
into half and were seemingly
in control but Fort White was
not ready to pack it in and they
fought back scoring early in the
second to trim the 'Dogs' lead
to 2- i.
VWilth some back and forth
physical play the game became
more intense, then Justin
Folsom received a short pass
from Viliagomez and blasted
nearly a 45-yard shot into the
lop left corner of the goal.
"Justin's shot was one the

score," Boggs said, referring
to the Bulldogs' next-to-last
After the Bulldogs tied the
game at 7-7 in the first quarter,
the Taylor County defense came
up big.
Pensacola began on their own
44 after a pooch kick by Taylor
and mixed inside runs by Simon
Smiley (16 carries, 47 yards) and
option pitches to Sumler which
quickly moved Catholic inside
the Bulldogs' 20-yard line.
That is where Bulldog
defenders Raydon Parker, KJ
Johnson and Justin Becerra
bowed up and Wesley Brandon
and James Houston made some
huge tackles inside the 10-yard
On 3rd and goal from the 4-yard
line, Jalen Jackson out-jumped
and out-fought Division-1 recruit
Ransifer for a jump ball pass
over the middle and came down
with an interception that fired up
the crowd.

possession, QB William
Wentworth (1 of 10, 1 yard, 1
int.) overthrew Jones on first
down and after a 7-yard run by
Houston, Jackson lost two yards
on a carry to force the Bulldogs
to punt.
Daniel Wentworth boomed a
53-yarder, but those yards were
quickly gained back by Sumler,
who bulled up the middle for 28
yards on just two carries. Then
the Bulldog defense stiffened
again, as Darick Ward and
Becerra combined for a sack and
Nelson recorded a tackle for loss
to force a Crusader punt.
A QB keeper by Grambling (7
carries, 13 yards) and a short run
by Jackson were followed by an
incomplete screen pass that led
to another D. Wentworth punt.
This one was nearly blocked and
traveled just 16 yards--setting
up Sumler's second TD run,
which gave Catholic a 14-7 lead
with 28.9 seconds to play in the
second quarter.
Jones broke free for an
electrifying 32-yard kickoff
return across midfield, but
Wentworth threw four straight
incomplete passes in the final 20
seconds of the half as he could
not connect with James Strawter
(1 catch, 1 yard), Jalen Jackson,
Hunter Barfield or Houston (who
were all held without a catch).
The Bulldogs started the
second half on their own 20
and could not pick up a first
down, despite a 5-yard facemask
penalty against Catholic at the
end of a 3-yard sweep by Jones
(4 carries, 18 yards). Houston
(2 carries, 5 yards) was thrown
for a loss on another sweep and
Jackson fumbled and recovered

TCHS Defensive Coordin;
linebacker Wesley Brandon
an option pitch for a 7-yard loss
before Grambling was called for
intentional grounding to force a
26-yard punt by D. Wentworth
into the driving wind and rain.
Pensacola took over on
the Bulldogs' 33-yard line,
but Taylor's defense held the
Crusaders out of the endzone
again, as Chad Hill stripped (and
recovered) the ball from Sumler
on the second of back-to-back
7-yard carries.
W. Wentworth and the Bulldog
offense went 3-and-out for a third
straight time, as he completed
a pass to Strawter for one yard,
handed off to Jackson for a gain
of two and was sacked for a one-
yard loss.
D. Wentworth booted a 32-
yard punt, and the Bulldog
defense forced another punt after
just 3 plays. After the 40-yard
punt, Taylor drove from their
own 23 to the Pensacola 31 in
nine plays, as Grambling took a
keeper for four yards, Jackson
broke loose for a 6-yard run and

ator Steve Price talks with
a first down and then threw a key
block for Jones who picked up
20 yards on a sweep.
Three more option QB
keepers mixed in with pitches
to Jackson moved the ball to
the Pensacola 31, but on a 3rd
and 4 trick play, Jones slipped
on the wet field while trying to
plant and throw a halfback pass
downfield on what appeared to
be a sweep play.
"If Tevin doesn't do a split
on that play, I believe we would
have tied the game," Boggs said.
"We had that play set up well and
it was wide open."
Instead, the Bulldogs had to
go for a first down on 4th and
15 from the Crusaders' 31 and
came up empty, as J. Jackson got
tangled up with a defender and
fell down as Grambling's pass
fell incomplete.
The Crusaders attempted to ice
the game and run out the clock
by handing off to Sumler on
nine straight plays for 40 yards,
however big stops by Brandon,

Raydon Parker and Johnson at
the Taylor 28 forced a 4th down
An amazing tackle by Issac
Nelson forced Pensacola to turn
the ball over on downs and gave
the Bulldogs another chance to
keep their playoff dreams alive.
Unfortunately, the Bulldogs
had to punt yet again after J.
Jackson dropped a pass near
midfield, Wentworth's pass in
the flat to Jones sailed too high
and Wentworth was sacked for a
six-yard loss back at his own 20.
Parker and Brandon made
another critical stop on defense,
and the Bulldogs just missed
falling on a fumble before White
completed his only pass of the
contest with less than 5 minutes
left in the game.
A fumbled punt snap (resulting
in a 21-yard loss after being
recovered by the Pensacola
punter) gave the Bulldogs an
excellent chance to tie the game
with just over three minutes to
The Taylor County offense got
the ball back on the Crusaders'
24-yard line with 3:28 left in the
game. However, Jackson was hit
in the backfield on a first down

option pitch and lost two yards.
Grambling's 2nd down pass
to Hill was thrown behind him
and fell incomplete, before
Grambling's desperation 3rd
down pass intended for Jones
was thrown up for grabs and
picked off in the endzone.
The Bulldog defense made yet
another three-and-out second-
half stop to give the offense one
last opportunity, but Wentworth's
first down pass to Hill was
too quick and fell incomplete.
Wentworth was sacked and
fumbled (recovered by Jackson)
on second down and his third
down pass down the sideline
for Strawter was picked off by
Catholic to end the game.
"This loss does hurt, but we
need to remember that there
were 47 football teams in Class
2B this year, and in the end all
of them but one will be hurting,"
Boggs said. "I am proud of our
guys. We prepared very wel)
and worked extremely hard for
11 months. I thought we played
with class and showed great
resiliency throughout the season.

Planting for the future
The Perry-Taylor County Chamber of Commerce
and the Florida Division of Forestry recently visited
students at Perry Primary School, helping them
plant their own trees. Dawn Taylor and Lisa Williams
with the chamber and Taylor County Forester Barry
Tye assisted students as they planted a single seed in
a container of dirt. The containers will remain at the
school until a seedling grows, and then the students
will be allowed to take the seedling home and plant it.
The chamber has taken part in the project for a
number of years and Taylor said she had heard from
students past that they still watch over their trees.

Elks pledge to

support veterans:

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks dedicated
November as National Veterans Remembrance Month and pledged
"so long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order
of Elks will never forget them."
In more than 250 VA medical centers, outpatient clinics, state
veterans' homes, and USOs, there is an Elks committee at work;
Perry Elks Lodge No. 1851 Secretary Earline Neeley said.
"Thousands of Elks and their spouses give generously of their
time, energy and resources so that the lives of our ill and aging
veterans will be enhanced. Thousands of hours and a like number
of dollars are devoted to wholesome programs designed to help
those in need, as we continue to honor veterans."
The Elks have enabled local lodge members to help veterans ir
hospitals and care facilities or those living at home through
programs such as:
Adopt-a-Veteran: This allows a lodge and its members to
participate in an activity to spell out the measure of Elkdom's
patriotism and "provides comfort, good cheer and understanding
to veterans who have fallen ill or been institutionalized."
Veterans Comfort-Care Kits: "We provide amenities and
necessities for veterans in hospitals, care homes, those whom we
have adopted and to all too many homeless veterans."
Playing Cards for Veterans: This program is aimed at
encouraging mental activity and social interaction for hospitalized:
In 2003 the Elks mobilized an Army of Hope.to assist the
families of military reservists and the National Guard who have
been called to active duty during this time of crisis.
"With many facets, any activity that supports our troops and
their families falls under this vital program," Neeley said.
If you care to assist with these programs, please contact the
lodge by calling 223-3952 or Veterans Chairman Ed Sheffield at

Thanks for a great I

season, Bulldogs!

B-3 Taco Times December 1,2010

The 2010 edition of the Taylor
County High School Bulldogs did
not win the second round of the
state playoffs held here Friday
night at Dorsett Stadium. Clearly,
everyone was disappointed.
But no one was disappointed
by the heart and effort shown by
the players on the field, who left
nothing behind when the final
clock signaled the end.
The Bulldogs gave Taylor
County a great season, racking
up 11 straight wins and closing
out their regular season play
undefeated--a feat which hadn't
been accomplished since 1969.
Yes, 1969.
They ignited a spirit within
the community which burned
brightly every Friday night at
Dorsett Stadium. The crowds

were tremendous and so was their
support for the team.
Businesses across the county
showed their enthusiasm on
marquees, storefronts and
windows. Orange and blue (and
the occasional black on black-
out nights) were the colors of the
This pursuit of the state
championship began early last
year. Both the team and their
families made sacrifices of time,
money and effort to see the season
through. Coaches and support
staff stood shoulder-to-shoulder
with the players, guiding them to
In that sense, we were all winners.
Bravo, Bulldogs. You made us
We can't wait until next year.

Nature can be a paradox

The nature of nature is
sometimes counter-intuitive
to our everyday, common-
sense thought processes. This
paradoxical subject deserves far
more attention than it gets.
Most people realize a healthy
natural environment depends
on beneficial associations
between plants, animals, soil,
climate and other factors.
These relationships are often so
complex, unraveling them can
take years, even decades.
Even though we at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) don't
knoe .i everything ther4 ik.W.
know about nature, we do
know some very important
things about Mother Nature's
uncompromising character
and how natural systems and
the laws of nature work to
maintain healthy habitats for
the wide variety of fish and
wildlife species that call Florida
An example of nature's
affinity for creating a paradox
is fire. We used to think forest
fires were the enemy of wildlife.
Just ask Bambi or Smokey Bear.
Yet, when conservationists
researched fires, they learned
that regularly occurring fires in
most Florida wildlife habitats
aided wildlife to a far greater
degree than anyone imagined.
Plant diversity is a key to
sustaining wildlife long-term,
and fire in Florida provides that
benefit. Fires fertilize the soil
and cause the seeds of many
beneficial plants to germinate.
The many plant species that
sprout after a fire during the
growing season provide a
balanced diet and also help
ensure that food for wildlife is
available throughout the year
and for years to come.
Researchers also found
that, in most cases, wildlife
is well-equipped to avoid the
effects of fires and to take full
advantage of the new growth.

Land managers now regularly
employ prescribed burns to
improve habitat conditions for
wildlife. Who knew besides
native Indians who regularly set
fire to the Everglades?
FWC wildlife managers
also employ mechanical and
chemical treatment of noxious


Koaney tarreto

vegetation to encourage the
growth of native plants.
Without these management
efforts, plant communities
would eventually age to the
point where they become
dominated by one or two
species that cannot provide
enough sustenance to support
most wildlife populations on
a year-round basis. In Florida,
these older plant communities
tend to be dominated by vast
areas composed mainly of oak
and palmetto, or monocultures
of thick woods --all of which
shade out the variety of
succulent native plants needed
by all sorts of creatures, from
invertebrates to mammals.
The effects of floods and
droughts are another example
of the paradox of nature.
While floods and droughts can
cause some wildlife to perish,
floodwaters act to push mucky
deposits of decaying plant and

animal matter from the lake or
river bottom into the adjacent
flood plain. When floodwaters
recede, the decaying matter
dries and compacts in the flood
Droughts benefit aquatic
ecosystems when mucky;
bottom sediments are exposed
to sunlight and air. The exposed
sediments dry and compact and,
even when re-flooded, remain
hard. These hardened bottom
soils are perfect spawning areas
for sport fish, while providing
both a medium for rooted native
plants that cleanse the water and
habitat for invertebrates that
feed sport fish.
In concert, the alternating
processes of flood and drought
are required to maintain a viable
functioning aquatic environment.
Where flood-control efforts have
interrupted the natural cleansing
process produced by cycles of
flood and drought, FWC lake
managers conduct artificial
droughts called drawdowns.
These trained professionals
oversee heavy equipment that
scrapes mucky sediments, which
are too thick for Mother Nature
to cure. In areas that have
been scraped and re-flooded,
native aquatic vegetation can
be replanted or allowed to re-
establish on its own.
Needless to say, nature's
sometimes violent ways don't
follow the expectations of
the human heart. However,
understanding the role these
events play is a basis for
developing an appreciation of
the uncompromising, resilient
spirit of nature--and a key
to embracing its glorious

Midweek Muddle

I'm going to watch "It's A
Wonderful Life" with new eyes this
I'm going to long for George Bailey
and his mortgage policies.
I'm going to applaud the self-
sacrificing way he cares for his
In recent months, I have come to
believe that lending money is no
longer a neighborly transaction. It's
a mile of paperwork with a national
bank which just happens to have a
vault in your town.
I'm left with black-and-white
images of a bank which helps
you count your pennies and earn
your way to the various American
dreams, but I'm beginning to believe
that those images have no validity
in today's national/international
banking industry.
Of course, I can say absolutely
nothing negative about the bankers
in this community. They focus
on customer service and friendly
relations. They care about veterans.
They support the local schools and
athletic teams. They belong to
civic clubs and give more than they
But you don't have to travel
any farther than Tallahassee to
realize that in the larger scope of
the banking industry--even in the
banks which have a branch in your
town--you're just another account
number...no matter how long you've
been a customer or what your
dreams involve.
A few years ago, banks all over
Florida were loaning people
millions of dollars to buy houses
they couldn't afford, and now, it
seems, the rest of us are paying for
their indiscretion.
We just spent months helping the
daughter purchase her first house-
-a small house for which she only
required a small sum of money.
She didn't need a million dollars.
She isn't an aeronautical
engineer with debt from vacations,
electronics, planes and Hummers.
She's a school teacher with a car
loan she has paid promptly.
Thus, SHE is the credit risk.
That's right: if you've paid for
everything, you're the risk. If you
owe everybody from Atlanta to
Afghanistan, the big banks are
keenly interested in you.

d tape has no

ristmas spirit
In the months she dedicated to
qualifying for a mortgage, we all
jumped through enough hurdles to
qualify for the next Olympics, too,
but it was never enough.
There was always a deadline,
which was missed.
A waiting period.
A disclaimer.
A bank holiday.
Fine print disqualifying Florida
and Arizona.
Oops, we can only loan you 90,
percent of the purchase price.
Oops, I meant to say 85 percent.
Oops, the appraiser didn't get
there on time.
Oops, we must wait 72 hours from
the final appraisal.
Oops, the underwriter is sick.
She'll be back Monday.
I'm sure I don't understand the
intricacies of home mortgages but
I'm beginning to wonder if mortgage
consultants affiliated with banking
chains do either.
My best hope is that this whole
ordeal is a lot like childbirth:
months from now, we'll just gaze
into the eyes of that house and
talk about how sweet it is. Right
now, however, I don't care if I ever
buy a house again. If I attempt
it, I want to pay cash and leave
the big banks chasing after their
million-dollar customers...while
their small customers who are
school teachers, faithfully invest
their small paychecks in these same
banks, only to be sent to the back of
the class when they need money to
make a dream come true.
"We're there for you" is a message
I no longer want to hear again from
anybody with an automated phone
system. If you're there for me, then
be there for me. And if you're a
bank, that obviously means when
owning your first home becomes
your primary dream.
If you see me digging in my
backyard, pay attention. While the
squirrels store up nuts for the long
winter ahead, I'm considering my
future too. Do I dare? Or do I want
my money in the hands of banks
which had to be bailed out by the
federal government? I won't need
the FDIC, and I won't miss the red

Making This Right




Economic Investment


Health and Safety


For information visit: bp.com

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi

When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. 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
our families.

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? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If
you still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If
you're wondering what you can do, well the next time you're
shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.

For assistance, please call:
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
