At 11:30 p.m. Sunday, Swain
received a knock at his door.
It was a representative from
the Taylor County Sheriff's
Office there to tell him that his
daughter had been found shot
to death in what investigators
have initially labeled a murder-
suicide. She was 28 years old.
"We still don't have all of
the details. All we know is
pretty much what we have read

Bluegrass festival crowd largest ever
ROrganizers are "ecstatic" with the turnout for the ninth annual
Florida State Bluegrass Festival, calling the crowds the largest in
the festival's history.
L "We had a lot of people who had never been here before," Festival
Coordinator Dawn Taylor said. "They said they were glad they
.made the trip and will make it a regular stop now."
Taylor added that the festival was a boon for local businesses
.ev ,.with campgrounds and hotels full over the weekend.
"I know the restaurants did well," she added. "They also did a lot
of their shopping here."
In addition to the hundreds of festival-goers who made their way to
Forest Capital State Park this past weekend was Andy McDermott,
who received the honorary title of "traveling the farthest,"! having
made the trip from his home in England.
According to Taylor, McDermott is a bluegrass fan and player;
he scheduled his Florida vacation in order to visit the festival here.
"He said he'd been to a lot of festivals across Europe and this was
A the best he's been to," Taylor said.
This year's festival was also notable as .the final Florida

County moves forward with funding cut
The Board of Taylor County
agreed Monday night to fund
city recreation $50,000 for the
Commissioners said they did
this to get out of paying the city
in arrears (paying in the current
year for expenses incurred in
the previous year).
The $50,000 is roughly half of
the $99,000 the county paid for
last year's recreation expenses.
The board only held a brief
discussion on the issue Monday,
with Commissioner Malcolm
Page reiterating comments he
made at a workshop last week.
State and local officials along with volunteers joined
together Friday to observe Sexual Abuse Awareness
Month by placing more than 1,000 black flags in front
of Doctors' Memorial Hospital. The flag, emblazoned
with the words "Sexual Assault Survivor," represent
the estimated 1,145 victims of sexual assault in the
county. Above, Refuge House supporter Shirley Scott
places flags in the tribute line.
He pointed out that since the
county paid $74,000 for 2008-
09 and $99,000 for 2009-10,
if they paid $50,000 this year,
it would average out to around
$74,000 over the three-year
No one from the public spoke
at Monday's meeting.
Page made a motion to fund
the $50,000 and Commissioner
Pam Feagle seconded.
The measure passed
The board also instructed
County Administrator Jack
Brown to begin talks with the
city on drafting a new agreement
concerning recreation funding
and responsibilities for both the
county and city.

commissioners said they wanted
to have such ai. agreement

Jesus, if loving you is wrong, I don't want to be right!
What is God said to be? The very essence of God's character is love.
How great is God's love? For God so loved the world that He gave His
only Begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but
have everlasting life. But God commandeth His love towards us in that
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
What is the evidence that we are followers of Jesus? By this all men
shall know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Beloved, let us love one another for love is of God and everyone that
loveth is born of God.
How did Jesus summarize the Christians duty? Jesus said unto him,
Thou shall love The Lord God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and
with all thy mind. This is the First and great commandment. And the
second is like unto it, thou shall love thy Neighbor as thyself.
Are we to love only those who deserve our love? Ye have heard that it
hath been said, Thou shall love thy neighbor and hate thy enemies. But
I say unto you, love your enemies, Bless them that curse you, do good
to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you and
persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in
Jurleen Clayton, age 61
Put on the Whole Armor of God
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord,
And in the power of His might.
Put on the whole armor of God, that ye
May be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but
Against principalities, powers, the rulers of
The darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armor
Of God, that ye may be able to withstand in
The evil day and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about
with truth and having on the
Breastplate of righteousness.
And your feet shod with the preparation of
The gospel of Peace.
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye
Shall be able to quench all the fiery darts
Of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of
--. The spirit which is the word of God.
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in
In the Spirit and watching thereunto with all
Perseverance and supplication for all spirits.

Traditi he commission

issues onat ond day but, as
it did at it e ary meeting, it
will addr th oe issues on the
first day. i" :
The proposed draft rule
would establish three regional
management areas for red drum,
raise the daily recreational bag
limit for red drum from one
fish to two in Northeast and
Northwest Florida, create a
statewide pight-fish vessel limit
for red drum, and modify the red
drum off-the-water possession
limit and red drum transport
In other marine fisheries
action, the commission will
consider expanding the
FWC's stone crab protection
seaward, review and discuss
the latest spotted seatrout stock
assessment, and receive updates
on various federal fisheries
In addition, commissioners
will consider proposed
recreational amberjack and
gag grouper rules for Gulf of
Mexico state waters that would
be consistent with pending
rules in Gulf federal waters.
The proposed rules for Gulf
state waters would establish
an annual June 1 through July
31 closed recreational harvest
season for amberjack.
The proposed Gulf gag
grouper rules would create
a 2011 closed gag grouper
recreational harvest season of
June 1 through the end of this
year, except for an open gag
grouper recreational harvest
season of Sept. 16 through Nov.
15 this year.

WHEN IS A
Proposed legislation SPB 7204 and HB 89 would remove your right to read
public notices in newspapers restricting them to government web sites
only. The public's right to know cannot be abandoned in favor of presumed
cost savings, which are elusive.
Public Notices must be publicly accessible
53.6% of Floridian's over 65 do not have access to the internet*
28.1% of African-Americans in Florida do not have access to the internet*
34.6% of Hispanics in Florida do not have access to the internet*
In addition to printed newspapers, Florida's newspapers provide a supplemental
public notice web site, www.floridapublicnotices.com, allowing free and unlimited
searchable access to public notices aggregated from Florida newspapers.
Government posting of government notices on government websites takes away
Making government officials responsible for notifying the public on their own
websites carries with it a potential for abuse. For example, it may create the
temptation to change or manipulate the timing of public notices. If a scheduled
public notice is not published or contains false information, the newspaper is more
likely to catch the mistake.
Public Notices must be archived in a secure and accessible formal
The internet does not provide as reliable an archival history of public notices as
newspapers due to its vulnerability in the form of hackers, viruses, and downed
Governmental websites do not prove| | legal affidavits and written proof of
publication and a secure and verifia b aper trail

documentation to ensure that the 'notices were published timely and lawfully, as

Record crowd at Forest Capital State Park for 9th annual
Florida State Bluegrass Festival
Mountain Heart's fiddle player Jim Van Cleve lit up
the stage with his fast-fingered work during the band's
two sets Saturday. He was one of many award-winning
performers at the festival.
Florida State Bluegrass Festival organizers said the ninth annual event boasted the largest crowd yet with
campgrounds and hotels sold out across town. The event, which featured 24 hours of music for three days, took
over Forest Capital State Park for the weekend, with guests coming from as far away as England. In addition to
the live music, the festival also featured instrument workshops, arts and crafts, food vendors and the ninth annual
Taylor County Chili Cook-off. (Photos by Mark Viola)
Valerie Smith (right) and Liberty Pike performed
Friday and Saturday evenings. Among the band
members joining Smith on stage was fiddle player Becky
Moon Pie Princess and
delight festival crowd
The Florida State Bluegrass Festival played host to the final Florida performance
of three-time Grammy nominated band Cherryholmes. The family group announced
earlier this year it was disbanding in May. They first performed Saturday afternoon
and then returned to close out the festival that evening with the crowd remaining in
their seats until the last encore. (Top photo) B.J. and Molly play dueling fiddles with
Skip on guitar. (Bottom left) Mother Sandy and daughter Cia sing a duet. (Bottom
right) Father Jere completes the family ensemble on base.
2011 Moon Pie Princess Brandi Bass, along with her court and all of the Bluegrass
Sweethearts, walked through the crowd Saturday, handing out free Moon Pies to
hungry guests at the Florida State Bluegrass Festival. Bass was crowned during a
pageant held Friday, March 25, at Forest Capital Hall.
Mountain Heart brought their usual high energy to the festival, throwing
Southern rock and blues selections into their Saturday evening set.
The Moon Pie court was invited onstage Saturday by Ernie Evans and the Florida
State Bluegrass Band. They introduced themselves and spoke on what they want
to be when they grow up (three doctors, one dentist, one nurse and no bluegrass
musicians). Then they joined the band in a rendition of "I'll Fly Away." Shown
above are (from I to r): Valerie Gibson, Hermione Padgett, Addison Grace Shiver

paper it's written on.
From cover to cover, the Taco Times is full of news,

Get your 50o worth with these 25 good uses for a
newspaper once you've read it:
1. Temporarily block the sun from streaming in windows.
2. Spread sheets of newspapers out and make clothing patterns
3. Dampen and spread over window glass to protect it when you paint.
4. Line and protect closet shelves and drawer bottoms
5. Place folded newspapers on the floor as a mat for wet shoes or muddy boots.
6. Make fire logs out of old newspapers. Roll sheets of newspapers up tightly in the shape of a
log. Tie them tight with string and use them in your fireplace or on a camp fire.
7. Do you still have some old 45 or other type of vinyl records? Store them safely by placing old
newspapers in between each one.
8. Ball up half sheets and let Kitty play with them. Cats love the crinkling noise.
9. Place balls of old newspapers inside leather shoes, purses, and in suitcases. They help leather
items keep their shape. They also help deodorizethem.

11. Your auto have a fluid leak? Place sheets underneath your car when it's parked in the garage

you don't have to clean off ice and snow in the morning.
13. Spread out sheets of newspaper between plants in your garden to keep weed growth down.
Cheaper than black plastic!

18. Transport fresh flowers in damp newspaper to keep them fresh longer.
