City puts contractor on notice

The City of Perry served
contractor Ben Withers notice
Tuesday that he has 10 days
to begin work correcting four
major problems in the newly
installed sewer system in
Granger Subdivision or else
face a claim against the bond
insuring the work.
City engineers also presented
Withers with a letter stating that
four sections of the mains were
not built to specifications. The
engineers further stated that
they could not certify to the

Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) that the lines
were installed according to the
plans and specifications.
"Without that certification,
nobody can hook up to the
system and it cannot be put into
operation. And that means that
until those are fixed, the project
is at a standstill," City Manager
Bob Brown said.
"In our letter, the city informed
the contractor that if he was not
going to fix the lines, we would
consider him in default and

that he had abandoned the job,
and we would make a claim
on the bond to bring in another
contractor to finish the job."
The Granger sewer project-
originally slated to take only
six months to complete-has
entered its 16th month.
"Construction began Dec.
7, 2009. It was originally
supposed to be completed
in June 2010. However, due
to unforeseen conditions-
including huge rock fields
that were not expected-we

granted an extension that set the
completion date to September..
"The contractor went into the
penalty phase Sept. 13 and has
accrued more than $150,000
in penalty fines since then. He
hasn't been paid since October
and we told him that we weren't
going to process any pay request
until he fixed the lines he has
already been paid for," Brown
"He has made a few minor
repairs, but he hasn't addressed
the major issues that everybody

County partners with Madison, Suwannee

Taylor County is joining
Madison and Suwannee
counties in creating a Tri-
County Economic Group in
order to hire a consultant to help
locate new businesses in the
As part of the agreement,
the county commission agreed
to fund one third, or $30,000
annually, of the consultant's
salary and travel expenses.
The money will come from the
county's economic development
fund, which currently holds

Commissioners approved the
interlocal agreement at their
meeting on March 7 in a 4-1
vote, with Commissioner
Pam Feagle voting against the

"The opportunity here is
collaboration between two other
[counties] in jump-starting our
economic development results,"
Taylor County Economic
Developer Rick Breer said.
"Any consultant selected
would have existing site
selector company relationships,
a proven track record for
successful results in economic
development demonstrated by
number of jobs created and
amount added to tax base,
enough experience to raise the
capacity of the three economic
development organizations
involved and the ability to
create economic development
results in the short term."
The Madison and Suwannee
commissions have also
approved the agreement and

Breer said he hopes the group
will hold its first meeting soon to
develop a request for proposals
to advertise for the consultant.

members on the nine-member
board, consisting of the county

representatives will consist

At the March 7 meeting,
Feagle raised concerns over the
agreement, asking who decides

where prospects go. She also
pointed out that Madison and
Suwannee counties have access
to the interstate.
Breer admitted Taylor would
be at a "disadvantage" if
incoming businesses required
the interstate, but pointed to the
planning work accomplished
here, including Vision 2060,
as well as a manufacturing
workforce "puts us at an
advantage" for other businesses.
Feagle continued, stating the
county has "no guarantee" the
money invested in hiring the
consultant would result in new
Commissioner Mark
Wiggins, who represents the
board on the TCDA, said if
businesses were to locate in
Madison or Suwannee County,

they could still hire Taylor
County residents to work there.
"Where I'm going to be--
and this is nothing personal
against you (Breer) and
nothing personal against your
board--is that we take the
money that we have been giving
to TCDA and if we were even
to think about adding another
$30,000, if we could afford it, I
would suggest we hire our own
economic developer," Feagle
said. "Somebody that's going to
be dedicated to us."

we have three members on the
board," Commissioner Malcolm

from the office of Sen. Charles Dean

Session's second week

keeps Legislature busy

Editor's Note: The following
summary of the Legislature's
second week of business in
Tallahassee was featured in
Senator Charles Dean's weekly
newsletter, 'The Dean Document:'
which was distributed Friday.
It was a very busy week on
the floor of the Florida Senate.
The "Smart Cap" bill was
passed as were numerous bills
pertaining to the re-creation of
various trust funds.
The "Smart Cap" amendment
would place limits on state
revenues by tying annual
increases to inflation and
population growth. Under the
amendment language passed
by the Senate, the cap could
be broken in three ways. The
Legislature could vote to
reset the cap by a two-thirds
majority or temporarily bust
the cap for one year via a
three-fifths vote. Voters could
also reset or eliminate the cap
through another constitutional
A revenue cap currently
exists in the Constitution, but
the "smart cap" is deemed
necessary because the existing
cap is ineffective and has never
been threatened. If passed by

the House and signed by the
governor, the measure would be
placed before voters in the 2012
general election.
Among the many bills being
voted on was a measure to
insulate vehicle manufacturers
from liability in cases where a
product defect caused enhanced
injury following a crash. Senate
Bill 142 would allow the
manufacturer to bring evidence
explaining the causes of the
accidents when the driver's
actions may have contributed
to the cause of the enhanced
injury. Damages would then be
divvied up based on the degree
of fault. The measure would
allow juries to hear all the
evidence in a crash worthiness
case, including the details of
the crash, if a judge rules it is
Meanwhile, the Senate
Committee on Environmental
Protection and Conservation
had a hearing on new federal
water pollution standards and
the Environmental Protection
Agency's numeric nutrient
criteria. The committee also
passed a bill which requires
water management districts to
establish permitting programs

for urban redevelopment
projects and requires storm
water discharges in the
redevelopment areas to meet
state water standards. The
Committee also passed a bill
which designates the Barking
Tree Frog as the official state
The Senate will meet on the
floor of the Senate Chamber
twice [this] week and will
continue to hold committee
meetings throughout the week.
Among the bills sponsored
by Senator Dean currently
on committee agendas are a
bill relating to pest control
(Senate Bill 1290) and a bill
on boater safety (Senate Bill
Finally, late on Friday,
state economists announced
incoming general revenue
will be $215.8 million lower
than previously expected,
increasing the state's budget
shortfall by just under 1
percent. The consensus revenue
estimate's lowered forecast was
blamed on a historically slow
recovery from the recession.
Furthermore, sales taxes have
not recovered as robustly as
previously predicted.

Letters to the Editor

Farmers market to open

on South Jefferson Street

Dear Editor:
We are going to start a
farmers market here in Perry.
This is a non-profit thing so any
help to get the word out to the
community would be great.
The market will be located at
the vacant lot between Owens
Veterinarian office and the creek
on South Jefferson. The city
(Bob Brown) has graciously
allowed the market to be there
at no expense which will greatly
help encourage farmers to sell
their produce.
It will be a "growers only"
market. The Florida Department
of Agriculture and Florida
Statutes allow anyone to sell
produce they grow without
permit or license. We encourage


anyone that grows vegetables
to participate especially
younger folks. Only Taylor
County residents are allowed to
participate in the market.
I have made a Facebook page
"Perry Downtown Farmer's
Market" that will allow farmers
to contact me or post a comment
to let the community know what
produce will be coming in at
what time and also get feedback
from the community.
Anyone wishing to participate
can go by City Hall and pick up
a copy of the "Vendor Rules."
They simply have to sign the
form, have it notarized and they
will be provided a copy to keep
at their stand for inspection. At
this time the hours are 8 a.m. till

Midweek Muddle


I dutifully answered the phone for it
seems I'm the only one at my house who
hears it ring.
The husband's brother said abruptly,
"Is he home?..it's important."
My brother-in-law usually has the
courtesy to ask how I am, check on the
children and offer some snide remark.
This time he did not so the phone call
struck me as curious, -
I walked toward the husband and said
somberly, "It's your brother...he says it's
He looked at me quizzically and sat
"Hello," he said and a long pause
Then the husband said incredulously,
"What?" as he listened for more long
I'm sitting there worrying for it's what
I do.
"Oh man," the husband said with deep
remorse and angst.
I clutched my heart fearing an unknown
"What can be done?" the husband then
asked, and I sat down.
I know it is impolite to stare at another
individual while he is having a phone
conversation, but I'm the wife and I felt
my support might be needed.
"This is horrible," he added.
I was conjuring horrible images; it's
what I do.
More minutes passed.
"How is Dave?" was the husband's next
Dave, I thought to myself. There's
nobody in our family named Dave. It
must be a high school friend in crisis. Or
a neighbor. Or a childhood acquaintance.
We've always thought the husband's
brother wouldd be a professional mourner;
he reads: the obituary pages religiously
and knows most of the people. Was this
just another random opportunity for
Their conversation continued, but there
was little more for me to hear. Finally
the husband said, "Call me tomorrow
when you.know more. I appreciate it."
I'm sitting there blank-faced, expecting
the worst.
He reports, like Walter Cronkite, "The
dam at Dave's lake has broken and it is
tragic. He had that lake down to a fine
science--the levels, the species--and now
there are big bass dying while he fights
against the clock to save them."
I was speechless and then almost
angry. I sat there, jerking my head from

:ragedy of epic

left to right, inquiring of the husband,
"All this was about fish?"
He was shocked at my reaction.
"Not just fish, Susan," he said rather
disrespectfully. "Trophy bass."
I closed my eyes, crossed my arms
and rose to leave the room. Here I was
ready to lend comfort, and I learn that
the grand emergency has gills.
i !;l ow_, Dye, you see; he is a very
likeable, unassuming soul despite the
fact that he didn't have to seek gainful
employment after he finished college.
In addition to a gazillion dollars, his
family owned so much land that he's
been appointed responsibilities toward
managing it. It's a job, to be sure, and
he does it well. But, as you know, it's
always more difficult to be sympathetic
toward the billionaire.
"Dave has endless resources," I said,
like a mother telling a child that Lassie
isn't going to die during that day's
television episode. "I'm sure Dave can
throw some money at this problem and
fix it."
"No, that's just it," the husband said.
"The dam is compromised at its base.
There is no way to fix it until the lake is
drained. Dave's had experts from three
states there trying to develop a strategy.
Now he's got a fishery biologist on site
with an electric gun, stunning the fish so
he can transport them to another lake."
"They're doing what?" I asked.
He spoke slowly since I'm intellectually
challenged. "They shoot the fish with
an electric gun which stuns them long
enough to transport them to another
lake on the property--it saves their
I regret my expression. I had not
considered laughing, even quietly, until
then and I knew it was inappropriate.
"It's a tragedy," he repeated with all
seriousness. "Dave is in deep depression
--this is his life's work washing away."
"Well, my gosh, there was a tsunami
in Japan last week. I'm sorry I cannot
be overwrought with concern for these
"Everyone's tragedy is their own,"
he said, drawing from the years he
languished in philosophy class.
And so it is. The husband, Dave, even
the bass know that what happened in
Japan is of much greater proportions
than what happened on this lake in
Alabama. It doesn't even compare. But
grief is grief, no matter the proportion,
and as you remember Japan....please
remember Dave.

TCHS cadets find

adventure at Camp

Blanding training
Some 40 cadets from Taylor County High School's JROTC
Bulldog Battalion took part in the annual Camp Blanding
Orientation Adventure Training Trip.
They left Thursday, March 3, and returned Saturday, March 5.
Unlike in previous years, when the cadets traveled to Camp
Blading via helicopters, due to military financial constraints, the
helicopters were not available. Instead, the cadets were transported
by a school bus.
On their three-day adventure, the cadets stayed in barracks, had a
street dance, woke up at 5 a.m. and attended physical fitness drills.
This included stretches, exercising and calisthenic exercises.
During their second day, the cadets participated in a leadership
reaction course. This course tests their leadership skills and abilities,
decision making, and tactfulness in a timely manner.
"Although the challenges were tough, the cadets got to enjoy a
trip to the Orange Park Mall," 1SG (Ret) Eddie L. Smith said.
The following morning the Cadets cleaned their barracks and
went out repelling off an 80-foot high tower.
"All the cadets who attended faced their fears and made it safely
down the tower," Smith said. "The cadets developed leadership
skills that will stay with them their entire lives."

Gray said he observed that the
driver had what appeared to be a

When questioned about the

The subjects in the SUV,

Pigford indicated that he

because it was a new gun.

Student scientists at work
Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) hosted a school-wide Science Fair
Thursday, March 17. Students in every classroom shared science projects with
family and friends. Approximately 700 people attended the event where students
shared scientific hypotheses and conclusions. "Science has been spotlighted at TCES
this year since it has been identified by the Florida Department of Education as a
critically low performing area in our school district," Principal Sharon Hathcock said.
Parents were also given FCAT tips to use in helping to prepare students for the 2011
FCAT testing which begins on April 11. In the top photo, Trayton Kirk is shown with
a project on diaper absorbtion. (Bottom photo) Princess Smith's project focused on
what happens to an egg when it is dropped into a cup of vinegar.
