A man who apparently
decided to ring in the new year
by firing a gun into the air
caught the attention of police
and was subsequently arrested
not only on a weapons charge,
but also drug charges.
Perry Police Department Ptl.
Kyle Johnson was on patrol in
the area near the intersection of
U.S. 19 and Highway 98 west
shortly after midnight New

Year's Eve (Jan. 1) when he
heard what seemed to be
gunshots coming from the area
near or around 98 Bar.
While approaching the bar's
parking lot, he observed a man
in light colored clothing
holding a gun in his hand while
standing in front of a dark SUV.

attorney general for the State of Florida, where she handled
criminal appeals in the state and federal appellate courts.

Johnson related in his report.
Exiting his vehicle, Johnson
approached the man who
turned and walked between the
SUV and a nearby Ford truck.
Johnson confronted the man
(later identified as Markies
Robinson, 33) who told him
that he had a handgun in his
back pocket.
Johnson immediately took

possession of the weapon and
secured it in his patrol car.
"The gun had a spent

was not extracted due to some

Make volunteering one

of your'11 resolutions

Director of Volunteer Services
Covenant Hospice
Now that the holidays are
over, and you are starting to
think about your New Year's
resolutions, I encourage you to
make one of those resolutions
to become a Covenant Hospice
volunteer. When people think
about volunteering for hospice,
their first thought may be, "I
could never do that," or "I would
be too depressed." However,
talk to a Covenant Hospice
volunteer and he or she will tell
you a very different story.
Covenant volunteers
come from many different
backgrounds, ranging from
retired persons, to working
professionals, active military
personnel, high school and
college students. They all
have one thing in common... a
desire to give back, and in that
giving they receive so much in
Covenant has opportunities
for people with diverse skills
and interests. Volunteers that

are looking for a chance to
meet new people and to be
active in the community will
love Covenant's Ambassador
Program. For those that want
to have fun and socialize
with others, Covenant's fund-
raising events are the perfect
fit. Volunteers that enjoy
office work or computers can
find a home in administrative
support. Individuals with care-
giving experiences, emotional
and spiritual support skills
may choose to visit Covenant's
patients and their families.
Persons that have
experienced the loss of a loved
one understand what families
have gone through and make

volunteers. Volunteers from
our communities help to garden,
clean yards, make simple
home repairs, build ramps,
sew,.crochet, cook and bake.
Volunteers receive specialized
training that prepares them
to volunteer in their area of

promise to our volunteers that
they will find a sense of purpose.
worthwhile work and the
realization that they are making
a difference. That's why over
2,600 individuals have chosen
to give an important part of their
lives to Covenant Hospice.
Covenant's volunteer
program has received Awards
of Excellence from Florida
Hospice and Palliative
Care Organization for the
Ambassador Volunteer
Program, the Reflections Life
Review Journal Program, and
the Tuck-in Program. The late
Sam Goldenberg and his wife,
Joyce, long-time Covenant
Hospice volunteers, received
the Volunteer of the Year Award
from the National Hospice and

please think about becoming a

Dear Editor:
I am writing to express my
sincere appreciation for the time
and assistance shown to me this
morning when I unavoidably
hit a cat that ran into the street
in front of my truck.
I was extremely upset when
I saw that the cat managed to
get to the other side of the street
and was still alive. I ran to the
Star Mart right beside where
the accident happened and the
lady working in the store so
graciously helped me all she
could by letting me use their
phone and directory in trying to
contact someone to come take
care of the cat.
Because of the upsetting
situation, I failed to get her
name or the name of the lady
who arrived to help Animal
Control. She took control of
the situation and took the cat to
Animal Control.
It is great to know that there
are those who will stop and
take the time to help animals
at a time like this, and I wanted
them to know how much I
appreciate their assistance this

Midweek Muddle

"In God we trust, all others pay cash."
That familiar posting, often found
at produce markets and roadside fruit
stands, always makes me smile.
What I'm learning now, though, is
that cash is no longer preferable and
I'm having a difficult time wrapping my
1950s brain around that truism.
I sat while a customer ahead of
me dealt with cell phone issues last
week. His phone, which fell victim to
a wood chipper, was not a complete
loss because he had insurance. With
the $89 deductible, he could have
another phone overnighted to him for
considerably less than a new phone
would cost.
So he grabbed his wallet and pulled
out cash.
"We can't take cash," she said. "For
you to do this, it's got to be an electronic
He scratched his head.
I scratched mine too. Who doesn't
want cash? It's one of the few sure
things in today's financial market.
He obviously didn't have a debit card
or credit card with him, but he had
enough cash to pay a month's rent for
the business.
"Let me call and see if they will send
it COD to your address so you can pay
cash upon arrival," the resourceful
representative suggested.
Phone calls of this nature, as you
know, require her store number,
representative number, his account
number, and about eight more minutes
of information and hold time.
Then she listened intently. Even she
was surprised. "It costs an extra $15 if
you're going to request a COD in order
to pay cash," she told him, covering the
mouthpiece of her phone.
"Fifteen dollars!" I had to say for him.
"He's being punished for wanting to
pay with cash?"
Then I backed up. She's just the
messenger, not the CEO. It's their
policy, not hers.
"This is nuts," he said.

)w roads and

tit stands

"I don't think he wants to do that,"
the representative said, trying to be
polite to her company advisor while
still being helpful to her customer.
I noticed on the counter that if you
pay your bill at this location, there will
be a $2 handling payment.
I pointed to the sign.
He shook his head in disbelief.
The local clerk was so kind, so even-
tempered and so apologetic. "They say
you can go to a department store and
pay cash there," she suggested.
That one astounded both of us.
"So, just to be clear," he said, "you're
sending me away because I want to pay
with cash."
She was struggling for the logic, too.
"I'm not mad at you," he said, "I just
want to understand."
"I guess so," she said.
And there went more than a hundred
dollars out the door.
I, on the other hand, wanted to
remove the e-mail package from a cell
phone on my plan and save myself $10
a month.
Can't do it. Can't have that phone
without that package.
Say what?
Clearly, I am old. Clearly, this is minor
in comparison with world hunger and
genocide. But isn't there something
terribly wrong with a company which
refuses to provide the services you want
because you have cold, hard cash....and
then refuses tq delete the services you
don't need because...well, just because.
I could get mad and cancel all my
phones, but that would cost me several
hundred dollars because it would be a
violation of the contract I signed less
than a year ago.
Perry certainly isn't the fast lane, but I
can see why people sell all their worldly
belongings and go sit in the sun without
cell phones, t.v.'s or Internet.
I clearly prefer roads where there are
fruit stands with signs like "In God We
Trust...all others pay cash."
That I understand.

If you missed our 1st Annual
Shady Grove Country
Christmas Parade, Dec. 18, you
missed a joyful slice of true
Americana right here in our
little part of the world!
But don't dismay, Sammy
Tedder was there with his video
camera and made a wonderful
visual treasure, beautifully
enhanced with the Christmas
melodies of the Wayward
Winds Trio. Simply go to
SammyTedder.com on the
computer, click on the link to
Christmas Parade to see it as
we experienced it that Saturday
before Christmas 2010.
While there, take a listen to
some of the best natural jazz
around.The parade committee
has good reason to beam with
pride for the event was truly
delightful...the hot dogs worth
waiting in line for; all the chili
pots were just beyond good (I
tried three!); the Christmas
tunes came alive and drifted
over the crowd and through the
woods; and so many children
were thrilled to walk through
lollipop lane to have their
picture made with Santa that I
never had to chance to tell him
what I wanted for Christmas!
It was a great day worth
every ounce of effort put into it
by the parade committee
members who worked so hard
to make it a reality. You did it!-
-and it was great. We are all
looking forward to the parade
next year!

My Paradise
Santa gave me my wish
anyway, for I took my first real
vacation since my honeymoon
in Captiva Island...in 1985! No
wonder people look forward to
these things called vacations! I
spent four of the most peaceful,
calm and quiet days alone- in ;
Edisto Island, S.C., before my
son joined me there to celebrate
Christmas. It was such a clean,
uncluttered, tranquil place that
I came back inspired to make
my home into a clean, well-
lighted place of calm and
comfort...an everyday retreat of
my very own.

My New Year's
Over these past two years, I
have written of wanting a
chicken yard where I can gather
fresh high omega-3 eggs,

donning them with neck
ribbons tied in bows); I longed
to grow my own kitchen herbs
outside my back door; and
restore what is remaining of my
grandparents' house. Well, the
wood for my chicken yard
remains under my pumphouse,
so I have to keep buying my
eggs from the grocery...none of
my herbs poked their heads
from the dirt in my herb
garden... my tiller was stolen;
and I haven't begun any work
on the little remnant across my
swamp. Truly, I am the greatest
planner ever born and have
made detailed lifeplans since
first reading Harriet Lerner's
work back in 1995...but I am
absolutely rotten at making
those lifeplans come true. A
very kind man once told me
that I have great potential, and
another (equally kind) said that

I had much to offer the world.
You see, in addition to this
being the beginning of a new

By Deborah Sheffield
year, my birthday just passed,
leaving me with just three years
until age 50. I have been in
deep thought ever since.
I deliberately spent a quiet
birthday night at my house for
which I bought myself roses,
some new pajamas, and a new
Real Simple magazine to read
before I drifted off to sleep
early here in the country.

Country Mouse or
City Mouse
Which one are you? Do you
recall the story of the country
mouse and the city mouse? I
couldn't help but think of the
little story yesterday as I picked
up a mousetrap that did its job.
(Fortunately, stories and
parables use everyday things,
creatures, and people to teach
us lessons, so that the mouse of
the story and the mouse who
ate the peanut butter yesterday
are not to be confused as one
and the same.)

I began thinking about which
mouse in the story I am most
like. I loved living in Nashville
and frequenting Kansas City;
but when living in Lawrence.
Kansas, I longed for a garden
and the quiet of the country. So
when I came to Tallahassee
yesterday afternoon, I posed
this question to my cousin Sam
and then to his wife Sandy:
What can I do at age 47 to
make certain that life at 50. 55
and even 65 is the life that I
want to be living?
Yesterday I wrote to my son
about the importance of
gratitude in his life--Sam
reminded me about being
grateful for a dry warm roof
over my head, about the
incomparable starlit night skies
of Shady Grove, then he added
that there is a community in
Shady Grove unlike in cities
where people live among
thousands of others but live
lives of absolute unbearable
isolation. Sam finished by
saying that life is about the
quality of the journey itself and
not the destination.
On my birthday, I read
something similar in my new
Real Simple magazine (one of
my two favorite
periodicals)..."Happiness is not
a station you arrive at, but a
manner of traveling." I have
decided this is a lesson for me.
I didn't make a New Year's
Resolution on New Year's Day,
but I make one here: My
Resolution for 2011 is to gently
lift my life from the paper that I
plan it on and make it my
reality...enjoying the living of it
as I go along.

What do you do with

poinsettias in January?

What do you do with your poinsettias after Christmas?
Taylor County's Master Gardeners forwarded these tips from
their newsletter, "The Cor-Poster."
Throughout the winter, keep your poinsettia plant somewhat
dry and do no fertilize until the weather warms in the spring.
After the weather has begun to warm, cut off the fading bracts,
leaving 4-6 inches of the stem on each branch.
Begin fertilizing with a well-balanced fertilizer.
Move the plant outdoors to a partly shady area.
Eventually, you will want to place your poinsettia in a full sun
location, but give the plant a week or two to adjust to both
temperatures and brighter light levels before doing so.

Progress Energy issues scam alert for local residents

Amid recent reports of
telemarketers posing as
electric company personnel,
Progress Energy Florida
warns customers to be wary
of offers for complimentary
energy audits.
For the second time in six
weeks, several Progress
Energy customers have
reported that they have
received telephone calls from
people claiming to represent
Progress Energy or
independent contractors. The
caller offers to conduct home
energy audits similar to
Progress Energy's home
energy checks--a no-cost
service designed to identify
opportunities for saving
energy at a customer's home.
Customers report that the
callers are extremely
persistent, even threatening,
and often try to confuse
customers, company officials
"Progress Energy does not
cold-call customers to offer
home energy checks.
Customers must request the

service and only Progress
Energy's energy advisors are
authorized to perform the
home energy checks
that determine customers'
eligibility to receive valuable
rebates toward energy-
efficient home
improvements. Audits done
by other companies do not
If a customer has any doubt
about the identity of anyone
claiming to be a Progress
Energy employee (in person,
on the phone or via e-mail or
other electronic media), the
customer is encouraged to
call the Progress Energy
customer service center at
(800) 700-8744 to verify the
employee's identity.
Other scams have involved
people claiming to be
Progress Energy employees
or representatives, seeking
entry into a customer's home.
Other than in emergencies or
safety-related issues, there
are practically no instances
when a representative of
Progress Energy would show

up at a customer's home
unannounced and ask to enter
to perform work.
Progress Energy

encourages customers and
others not to open their door
for utility workers unless
they can confirm the person's

identity. Progress Energy
employees carry company
badges with photographs. But
since ID badges, vehicle

signs and clothing can be
fabricated to look authentic,
none of these is sufficient to
assure a person's identity.
