With trials set to begin soon
for two suspects in an alleged
inmate tax fraud scheme which
cost the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) an estimated
$3 million, State Attorney
Robert "Skip" Jarvis is urging
federal officials to put a stop to
the nationwide problem which
reportedly cost taxpayers $123
million in 2009 alone.

The Georgia murder suspect
who fled house arrest was
captured here Sunday, Jan. 16,
at the Greyhound bus station.
A woman in the area of the
station recognized John Dennis
Woods, 37, from local
newspaper coverage of his
escape and called the 911
communications center around
8 a.m. Sunday.
"She told dispatchers that she
was pretty sure that the man
was the one who was in the
newspaper, wanted for escape,"
Perry Police Department (PPD)
Jamie Cruse said.
Officers were sent to the
station, which is located at the
intersection of U.S. 19 South
and Beach Road, and found the
suspect coming out of the
woods that surround the
convenience store and nearby
mobile home park.
"He gave them a false name
at first, but his correct identity
was confirmed and he was
taken into custody without
further incident," Cruse said.
Woods, whose father lives in
Perry, was booked at the Taylor
County Jail and is awaiting
extradition to Georgia.

Perry received another three quarters of an inch of rain
Monday morning, bringing the year-to-date total to more than
five inches in some places.
A front passed through the area in the early morning hours
Monday, with the National Weather Service station at Perry-
Foley Airport recording .75 inch of rain over a seven-hour
period, beginning around 5 a.m.
The Division of Forestry rain gauge at the Perry station
recorded a similar amount, bringing its total for the month (and
year) to 5.37 inches. The DOF gauge at Foley has had 4.18
inches of rain in January.
The week is expected to remain on a cycle between cold and
wet. The NWS is calling for decreased clouds today
(Wednesday) with a high around 68 and a low of 44 tonight.
The rain is forecast to return Thursday, with a 40 percent
chance, increasing to 60 percent Thursday night. There will be
a 50 percent chance of rain Friday, mainly before 1 p.m.
Then the cold is set to return for the weekend, with Friday
night expected to drop back into the high 20s. The NWS is not
ruling out the possibility of hard freeze warnings being issued

Resident decries'death and
destruction' of park fountain

MARK MORGAN INC.
This letter is to address
the death and destruction of
the fountain in the Veterans
When I read about this in the
local newspaper my thoughts
were, the city manager and
the council members just do
not get it. They do not seem
to comprehend what this park
really means to the people of
Perry. I am sure that most every
family in this town has one of
its own listed on the walls in
Every single thing in this
park was put there through
donations, some of which were
the city, county, businesses
and the private citizens of this
city and this county. Most of
the funds were earmarked for
I wonder if the fountain
was one of these items, if so,
I guess whoever specified
that their donation be spent
on the fountain has lost their
investment in this park.
The other day I took my
85-year-old mother, the widow
of a WWII veteran whose name
is on one of the walls to visit the
park. When we saw the gaping
hole where the majestic fountain
once stood, it really brought
home to us how this hallowed
ground had been desecrated.
Our veterans deserve more
honor and esteem than this.
I realize that the economy is
bad right now but the council
and the city manager could
have let the fountain stand as
it was, with a coat of paint now
and again, and waited for better
economic times. Then with
donations it could be made to
work again, and be funded to
flow once more. I am deeply
saddened and disappointed in
the decision made to destroy it.
First the flame was taken, and
then restored to its proper place;
now the fountain has been
destroyed. What will be next?
Will they vote to demolish it

If anyone has had any
questions about bias in the

public opinion of people and

The attack on Sarah Palin and
the Tea Party is sickening. They
point to Palin's map showing
targets on areas in the country
where Democrats were thought
to be vulnerable in the election.
This is no different than the map

targets on areas of the country
where Republicans seats were
They said that Palin and the
Tea Partiers incite violence
by telling supporters, "Don't
retreat, reload." However, they
failed to mention the statement
Barack Obama made in a speech
in which he said, "If they pull a
knife, we pull a gun."
Of course, mentioning that
would take away from the
agenda, wouldn't it? The fact
is, there is absolutely nothing
to even suggest this murdering
piece of trash had any
connection or influence by any
political organization. In fact,
there is evidence that he had his
eye on Rep. Giffords as far back
as 2007, well before Sarah Palin
was on the national scene.
Amazing how she was

Tea Party talk
I just wanted to say that
I attended the Tea Party on
Tuesday, Jan. 11. It was great.
It was very informative. The
speaker was Frantz E. Kebreau.
He spoke about Abraham
Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and
our Constitution. He spoke about
how and why the Republican
Party was formed. He spoke
about how that 640,000 people
gave their lives during the Civil
War so that every American
could live free. He spoke about
how and why racism still exists
in this country today.
I understand that in most of
the Tea Party meetings, someone
will come and speak about
America, the Constitution and
about our rights as American
citizens. This was my first time
attending one of these meetings.
It will not be my last.
I want to invite the residents
of Taylor County to come to
these meetings, even if you
don't support the Tea Party.

ON A SHORT LEASH
By the time you read this, the sun will
be out again. But on Monday morning,
when half of you were on holiday, the
rest of us awakened to gloomy skies,
falling rain and cool temperatures.
And we went to work anyway. Since
misery loves company, the weather
seems all the more dismal when you
know others don't have to navigate it.
But it's not just rainy days; it's not
just Mondays. It's January...and there
are days when all of us would like to
vanish from the landscape, lie on the
couch until dark envelopes the house,
and gain 45 pounds eating chocolate.
Just thinking about it makes me
I know the sun's going to come out
again, Annie, but when I wake up to
rain on Monday, I also understand that
the odds are stacked against me.
So I prepare for battle.
Years ago, Elizabeth Davis said to
me, "Wear red." This long-time, well
respected educator was always a
source of wisdom. "That's what they
tell teachers," she said. "On dreary
days, wear bright colors."
So I put on my red sweater and
headed to work, looking longingly at
the house. The dog lay listless in the
garage. She hates rain; she hates damp.
She can't frolic when it's raining. No
other dogs come over to play.
She hates hot and cold. She wants
75 degrees, blue bird skies and a bone.
While some people fear boredom,
it's been so long since I fell victim to
boredom that I can't imagine it still
exists. On a rainy day, while others
stand at the window and pine, or lay
listless in the garage, I can think of
100 things to do--probably one for
every letter of the alphabet. Give me
recipes to prepare, photographs to
file, books to read, movies I never saw
on the big screen. Find me a puzzle,

According to Jarvis, the
investigation into the local case
was a joint effort of the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, the U.S. Postal
Inspection Service, the Florida
Department of Corrections
Inspector General's Office and
the Third Judicial Circuit State
Attorney's Office involving the
filing of false federal income
tax returns by an inmate
formerly incarcerated in the
Taylor Correctional Institution
and the laundering of funds
derived from this illegal
The initial arrests were made
in January 2009.
The investigation revealed
that Coughlin illegally obtained
the identity information of
other inmates and used their
information to file falsified
federal income tax returns in
which he claimed an
overpayment of taxes which
resulted in "tax refunds" being
issued. The funds were
electronically deposited by the
IRS into an account controlled
by Coughlin and others who
would move and conceal these
proceeds, Jarvis said.
Coughlin is serving a life
sentence on charges of
attempted first degree murder,
attempted felony murder,
robbery (with a deadly weapon)
and fleeing/attempting to elude
a law enforcement officer at
high speed. He has been in
custody since June 2001. He

he might go," Cruse said.
The PPD also worked closely
with Georgia Bureau of
Investigations (GBI) Special

"We believe that Woods had
just gotten off a Greyhound bus
here in Perry when he was
spotted. This is a perfect
example of a concerned citizen
making the right choice and
calling law enforcement,
leading to the capture of an
extremely dangerous and
violent offender. Had it not
been for her swift action, he
could possibly still be fleeing
law enforcement and
endangering the lives of the
citizens of Perry," Cruse said.
"We would like to extend our
thanks and appreciation to the
Perry Police Department and
other local officers--they did a
.great ,jobr, ,.We appreciate
everything that was done...and
especially the citizen
who recognized the
suspect and called police,"'
"Woods is fighting
extradition and we are in the
process of getting what is
called a governor's warrant to
facilitate his return to Georgia.
He will be remanded to jail
until trial and will not be
eligible for bond again."
Woods is accused of
murdering 24-year-old Travis
Sauls in Ray City and then
transporting the body to the
Woods family hunting grounds
in Madison County, where he
tried'to burn it.
A family member discovered
Sauls' remains in Madison and
confronted Woods, reports
stated. The crime occurred in
September 2009; at Woods'
indictment in November 2009,
a superior court judge granted
him a $150,000 property bond
and ordered him to be placed
under house arrest.

Here is another chili recipe that sounds simply delicious but
requires a little more time and effort than my Chili On A Budget.
(Healthy) Slow Cooker Veggie Chili with
Ingredients: 1 med. red onion, 1 chopped green bell pepper, 4
chopped garlic cloves, 1 chopped tablespoon chili powder, 1
tablespoon ground cumin, 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
powder, 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, salt and pepper to taste,
1 28-ounce fire roasted diced tomatoes, 1-15.5 oz. black beans,
rinsed, 1-15.5 oz. kidney beans rinsed, 1 medium sweet potato,
peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces; sour cream, sliced scallions,
and tortilla chips for serving. (Add 1 lb. browned ground turkey if
In a 4-6 qt. slow cooker, combine the onion, bell pepper, garlic,
chili powder, cumin, cocoa, cinnamon (excellent in chili!), 1 tsp.
salt and 1/4 tsp. black pepper. Add the tomatoes (and their liquid),
beans, sweet potato, and 1 cup water. Cover and cook until the
sweet potatoes are tender and chili has thickened (on low for 7-8
hours, or on high for 4 to 5 hours). Serve the chili with sour cream,
scallions and tortilla chips.

Tjidhfrf7r Extra Day Session is Saturday
By SARAH HALL
First Bethlehem District
Association will hold its Extra
Day Session on Saturday, Jan.
22, at Gethsemane Baptist
Church in Tallahassee from 9
a.m. until 1 p.m. Everyone is
reminded to send or bring your
registration. Sister Esther
Pritchett is president and the
Rev. J.B. Duvall is moderator.
Hearing the sermon
Every year, since it was first
delivered by Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr,, we have heard the "I
Have A Dream" speech over
and over. Excerpts from the
original speech are recited and
written for programs and such.
A very powerful and profound
message of the times we live in.
Like Jesus' Sermon on the
Mount, and the scriptures that
tell of his life, birth, death and
resurrection. I wonder if we
just hear, enjoy and keep on
doing just like we've been
doing. Are we still "dreaming"'
or are we making concerted
efforts to make a difference in
the way we think, how we treat
others and the way we live?
When we hear the "I Have A
Dream" speech and we shall
overcome, one of the freedom
songs, it brings tears to our
eyes, but are our hearts
unchanged? Are we loving
more, forgiving more and
doing more to promote social
change and civil equality?
What are we "practicing" and
can we see some improvement
in our society? Are we equal--
but separate, or are we waiting
until Jesus comes back to
change things? On Jan. 15, we
began hearing the sermon
again. When we start living out
this message, then God will
send us another one. Not
surprisingly, 2000 years later,
Jesus' sermon is still being
repeated over and over and
some of us still don't believe.
A sermon or speech isn't
complete until it is put into
practice. The gladiator of
peace is gone but his dream
reminds us of the truth we must

The Perry Police Department
is in the process of utilizing a
teen occupant protection safety
grant and invites local service
groups to get involved.
"With the help of the Perry
Optimist Club, enforcement
and advertising, we have seen
seat belt use among teenagers
increase to 98. percent," Sgt.
Dodd Franklin said.
"We will continue with the
enforcement and advertising
during the Memorial Day Click
It or Ticket enforcement wave.
If your organization or civic
club would like to be involved
in the next enforcement wave,
please give us a call. We can
use the grant money to
purchase ads in the local
newspaper promoting teen seat
belt use and can feature your
club or organization's logo on
the ad. We are planning on
doing another seat belt
checkpoint and would like to
give cash money to those
students caught buckled up.
"The Optimist Club donated
$300 and gave 30 students a
$10 bill during our last
checkpoint. The students talked
about receiving the money for
days and it reinforced the idea
to buckle up and have a chance
at cash or not buckle- up and
"Our next seat belt
promotion campaign will be
held in the spring, which gives
groups plenty of time to join

Florida's Arbor Day is Friday;
it's time to think about trees
Welcoming the new governor
Michele and Don Curtis were among those from Taylor
County who traveled to Tallahassee earlier this month
for the inauguration ceremonies for new Florida Govenor
Rick Scott. They are shown above at the Inaguration
Ball, which was held at the Tallahassee-Leon County

Arbor Day in Florida will be
celebrated on Friday. Jan. 21.
While National Arbor Day is
held on the last Friday in April,
several states, including Florida,
observe the holiday at a time
best suited for tree planting for
Before you get started with
your planting, however, you
will want to make sure you
have selected the right tree and
the right place. A tree serves
many purposes. It is wise to
first determine which functions
are most important to you when
selecting a new tree to plant.
The main functions of a tree
Shade: Trees are an excellent
source for cooling because not
only do they block the rays of
the sun, they add water to the
air through transpiration. Plant
where you want the shadow
during the hottest time of the
Beauty: Trees add color
and can enhance your home
depending on where they're
Windbreak: These are most
effective when you plant trees in
a dense, step-like arrangement
of both conifers and deciduous
Boundaries: Trees can help
delineate your property.

Once you determine the tree's
function, you need to pick the
best spot to plant it. To help
ensure that you plant the right
tree in the right place, there are a
few things to consider:
Short flowering trees are
ideal planted under power lines.
These trees will not clash with
the lines and will add color
and beauty to your yard. Some
examples of short flowering
trees are redbuds, dogwoods and
Large deciduous trees are
best used to shade your home
and yard. These trees should
be planted on the southeast,
southwest and west side of
your home to provide cooling
shade in the summer and won't
obstruct the low winter sun.
Examples of large shade trees
are maples, oaks, spruce and
many pine species.
To slow strong winter winds,
many people use evergreen trees,
but large deciduous trees work
well, too. Windbreaks should
be planted on the north side of
your home, a fair distance from
the nearest structure. Spruce,
firs and pine trees make fine
Before you plant, you should
also discover which trees grow
best in Florida. To do so, consult
the Arbor Day Foundation's
Hardiness Zone Map at www.
arborday.org/treeinfo, or contact
a local nursery or arborist.
Once you've determined the
function of your tree and which
species you'd like, you're ready
to plant. You must take special
care of your tree during planting
time to ensure that it will grow
healthy and strong.

root trees and ball and burlap
trees can be found at http://
Americans have been planting
trees on Arbor Day since 1872.

civic leader and agriculturist
J. Sterling Morton urged

The tree-planting holiday was
so popular that by 1920, more
than 45 states and U.S. territories
