TCHS junior critically injured

A Taylor County High
School junior faces months of
rehabilitation after sustaining
critical spinal injuries during a
rollover crash Saturday.
Jarrod Flowers, 17, had to
undergo nearly five hours of
surgery Sunday and was slated
to remain in ICU for another
three days.

Reports indicate that paralysis
is a concern.
Upon release from the
hospital, he is expected to
be transferred to a spinal
rehabilitation center.
Flowers and two others teens,
Corey Miller, 18, and Bradley,
Miller, 17, both of Greenville,
were traveling northbound on


Red light
Perry Police Department (PPD) Ptl. Jason Bass directs
traffic at one of five intersections that did not have
functioning traffic lights Tuesday afternoon due to a
power outage. Reports indicate that Progress Energy
had trouble with a main transmission line, resulting in an
outage that stretched from Pisgah Road to downtown
Perry and beyond.

Wilbur Knowles Road around
12:35 p.m. when Flowers lost
control of the vehicle.
"He overcorrected the steering
in an attempt to gain control.
The vehicle, a 1990 Ford F-150,
rotated sideways and slid off the
roadway, striking several small
trees," Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) Trooper W.E. Harrell

The impact with the trees
caused the vehicle to overturn,
ejecting Flowers and the
passenger who was riding in the
rear bed of the truck (Bradley
The truck came to a final stop
upright, on top of Flowers.
Neither Flowers nor his inside

passenger, Corey Miller, were
wearing seatbelts.
The truck was traveling
down the limerock road at
approximately 50 miles per
hour, FHP reported. The crash
happened on Wilbur Knowles
Road, which was the address
given for both Miller teens. It is
located off Highway 19 North.

Taylor County is continuing
its partnership with Madison
and Suwannee counties to fund
the Tri-County Economic Group
despite the continued objections
of one local commissioner.
Commissioner Pam Feagle,
who was the sole board member
to vote against the interlocal
agreement creating the board
in March, asked her fellow
commissioners to reconsider
the decision last week, sparking
a lengthy discussion about
economic development and the
TCDA, but ultimately she could
not get the proposal to a vote.
The commission agreed
to join the three-county
group--whose purpose is to hire
a consultant to help locate new
businesses in the area--and 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 reserve

According to Taylor County
Economic Developer Rick
Breer, who sits on the group's
board, they have issued a request
for proposals and responses are
due by the middle of May.

Pam Feagle

Taylor County's other
representatives on the board
are County Administrator Jack
Brown and Taylor County
Development Authority
(TCDA) Chairman Jim Bassett.
Last week, Feagle reiterated
the concerns she expressed

in March, including the fact
that Madison and Suwannee
counties have an "advantage"
over Taylor due to their access
to the interstate and that there
is no guarantee the additional
funds (which are in addition to
the $74,000 operational budget
the county provides the TCDA)
will result in additional jobs.
"I still have these concerns,"
she said.
Feagle added that she had
since discovered Suwannee
County is splitting its
$30,000 share with the city
government and local chamber
of commerce, while Madison
County's administrator serves
as its economic developer.
"I have a problem with giving
[the TCDA] an additional
$30,000 to hire somebody to
do something that somebody
should have already been
doing," Feagle said. "I feel

Hospital, nursing home brace for funding cuts

With the Florida Legislature
looking to cut Medicaid
reimbursements to hospitals and
other facilities again this year,
officials at Doctors' Memorial
Hospital (DMH) are keeping
a wary eye on Tallahassee,


where cuts could cost the
hospital as much as $534,000 in
Last year, when the
Legislature cut Medicaid, rural
hospitals like DMH were spared
and DMH CEO Richard Huth

said he is speaking with House
members and Senators urging
them to do the same again this
According to Huth, the
House's proposed seven percent
Medicaid cut would cost the

hospital $265,000, while the
Senate plan, which calls for
larger cuts, would cost DMH
"Rural counties have a
disproportionate share of
Medicaid and charity care,"




Ronnette Griffin credits her faith, her family and her friends as guides and support during her "cancer journey."
She was the guest speaker at the Survivors Banquet held last week in conjunction with Relay For Life, where
"Hope" took centerstage.

from the heart-stopping words
coming out of her mouth.
Lump. Tumor. Mastectomy.

For many, the diagnosis is
a life-changing bell toll that

For Griffin, it was the
beginning of a journey she
deems a blessing.
"Cancer, for me, has been a
blessing-the opportunity to
see life in a different light. That
is the God's honest truth. I am
blessed. I am alive and have

"Now I had been getting my
yearly mammograms and didn't
have any problems. But I never
really bothered with self-exams.
But I did that night-I said a
prayer...and put my hand right
on it.
"A co-worker encouraged me
to get the lump checked out as
soon as possible. I called the
hospital here, but the earliest
I could get in was about three
weeks. She encouraged me not

Relay For Life honorary chair
It all started with a strange
symptom that many would be
tempted to ignore.
"I had this weird little itch
on my left breast for about four
months. Then, the last week of
February 2010, 1 Googled the
symptoms and found that 'itchy
boobs' were a sign of possible
breast cancer.

Huth said.

have passed their budgets and

committee meetings this week

to wait that long, so I called
Tallahassee and I got in that
Tuesday. Everything went well
with the mammogram and they
said they would give me a call
the next day with the results.
"When they called, they
wanted me to come in for a
biopsy because there were two
different areas of the breast that
were raising concerns. One was
a cluster of cells and another
was a tumor. So I went in that

we have a problem'."
Knowledge of the impending
diagnosis lingered throughout
the weekend.
"We had an awesome day at
church on Sunday and it was
like I was on a euphoric high on
the way to the doctor's office.
I remember walking into the
room... it was dimly lit so that
we could see the scans clearly...I
looked at my husband and said,
'See, I told you.'
"They had already scheduled
a MRI and gave us the names

Walk in My Shoes
Some 70 local walkers joined Lauren Book as she traveled through Perry Monday morning as part of her 1,000-mile trek across the state for Sexual Assault Awareness
Month. Participants with the Taylor County Walks program were encouraged to join Book beginning at Hampton Inn and continuing to Doctors' Memorial Hospital. Book's
"Walk in My Shoes" began March 19 in Key West and ended in Tallahassee on Tuesday, April 26, with the aim to "bring awareness.to the issue of sexual abuse, promote
changes in the law to enhance victims' rights, educate parents and children about how to stay safer and encourage victims to speak out about their experiences."

Fire danger level increasing

with drought index on the rise

Wildfire Mitigation Specialist
Perry District Office, DOF
Over the last three weeks,
the nation has watched as
destructive wildfires have
devastated many parts of the
state of Texas.
Taylor County, Florida... it
can happen here too.
We have recently seen fire
danger levels increase across
much of Florida. In Taylor
County, current conditions
show continued dryness due
to high temperatures and gusty
winds. The drought index has
also been on a steady rise over
the past three weeks. All of
these factors contribute to the
increased chance of wildfires in
Taylor County.
So far in 2011, nearly all of the
wildfires in Taylor County were
caused by human carelessness
and could have been prevented.

Of these wildfires, 18 percent
were caused by arson and 50
percent were caused by escaped
yard trash and other debris
bums. Taylor County, it is up to
you to fight this trend.
Always remain cautious
in your use of fire to ensure
that your carelessness doesn't
make Taylor County famous
for having the nation's next
devastating wildfire.
Remember to be fire safe
year-round and take time to
defend your loved ones, your
home and your neighbor's home
from the destructive effects of
wildfire. Remember, only you
can prevent wildfires.
Remember the following tips:
Always be careful
when using fire for any
reason--including campfires and
Never leave a fire unattended.
Make sure it is completely out

before you leave and keep a
shovel and water hose handy at
all times.
If your fire escapes, you may
be held liable for suppression
costs and damage caused to the
property of others.
Report all fires immediately
to 911.
Don't-burn on windy days or
when the humidity is below 35
Closely watch for any
sparks which might fly from
equipment you may be using.
This includes not only grinding
equipment and torches, but also
any lawn care equipment and
off road vehicles.
Be sure that spark arrestors
are in place on all engines used
near wildland fuel. Have these
engines tuned so they don't
back fire.
If parking on dry grass or
brush, remember that the heat

of your car can start a fire.
Supervise children and
be sure they understand the
dangers of fire and the possible
consequences of their actions.
Don't invite a wildfire into
your home: take time to remove
flammable debris like pine
straw, dry leaves and twigs from
your roof and 30 ft around your
If you have information
about a wildland fire believed
to be set by an arsonist, call the

a reward of up to $5000 for
information leading to an arrest.

in the forecast

The National Weather Service was tracking a line of
thunderstorms which had the potential for producing severe
thunderstorms here beginning late tonight (Wednesday) and
continuing into Thursday morning.
"Once again the greatest threat for severe weather is forecast
to be west of Taylor County with the storm system forecasted
to move northeast across the area," Taylor County Emergency
Management Director Dustin Hinkel said. "Still, some
thunderstorms can be expected and a rogue severe storm cannot
be ruled out."
According to the NWS forecast:
Severe weather will be possible starting Wednesday evening
continuing into mid morning Thursday across the region.
While instability and wind shear are sufficient with this
system, the severe potential may be decreasing with time
Wednesday night as the low pressure area moves rapidly
Severe probabilities are less than the widespread damaging
wind event from April 1.
The primary threats with this system are damaging winds
and large hail.
Isolated tornadoes are possible with any cells that develop
ahead of the expected squall line.

state, working with Gov. Rick
Scott's office as well. The
Legislative session is scheduled
to end May 6, but it is expected
the session will be extended.
"We realize Medicaid has a
target on it for balancing the
budget," Huth said, adding that
he has been in talks with Senator
Joe Negron's office to lobby for
the rural hospital exemption.
Negron is chair of the Senate
Budget Subcommittee on
Health and Human Services
Appropriations and is also a
member of the Joint Legislative
Budget Committee.
"If these reductions go
through, it will have a very
negative impact on the
hospital's bottom line," he said.
"We're basically a break-even
He said 20 percent of the
hospital's volume is from
Medicaid patients, while they
only receive 18 cents on the
dollar in reimbursements.
"The hospital also writes off
$250,000 a month in charity
care," Huth said.
"We're at a point of turning
around the hospital," he said,

"They've tried that in other

Executive Director Joyce

Warm, loving teachers; open communication with parents: a challenging
curriculum that expects and brings out the best in children: discipline that's
honest, fair, effective; a Christian atmosphere where the bible is not only taught
but memorized; and a place where the open exchange of ideas is both encouraged
and practiced. With such an educational option in our community, how can you
not want these things for your children? Investing in our children's education
through Point of Grace is by far the best decision we have made and the best
decision you can make as well.

Former TCHS track star looking to

qualify for 2012 U. S. Olympic Team

Todd Ford said he got tired
of sitting on the couch, washing
a few cars and generally just
goofing off. So he went to work.
The former Taylor County
High track star now has his
sights set on making the 2012
U.S. Olympic Team.
A 2000 grad of TCHS, Ford
was one of the fastest sprinters
in the state his senior year. His
success on the track earned him
a place on Florida A&M's track
"I sort of blew that after two
years. That's when I started
goofing off," Ford said.
Partially inspired by his
former high school Coach Ed
Harvey, Ford said he decided to
go back to work.
"After taking a bunch of
years off, it was hard. I started
out just walking and doing a

few pushups," Ford said.
Two years ago he started
getting some decent times in
the 100 and 200 meters and
he began working with former
FSU great and Olympic medal
winner Walter Dix.
In 2010 Ford began producing
some times that attracted
attention. His best time in the
100 meters was 10.48 seconds
and 21.3 seconds in the 200
In the upcoming months
he has a chance to compete in
major meets in Italy and Brazil.
He also hopes to compete in
the U.S. Nationals this June in
Oregon and possibly the World
Championships in Korea in
But his ultimate goal is
making the 2012 Olympic team,
where he will try to qualify for

the 100 meters, the 200 meters
and the 4x100 meter relay team.
Ford is seeking sponsors
to help him fund his dream
of ultimately making the
U.S. Olympic team. Anyone
interested in contributing
should contact George Clayton
at 838-2545.

Four track

state meet


Four Taylor County High
track team members will be

Jacksonville at Bolles High
Lachaddrick Ellis continued
his winning ways capturing
the regional titles in both the
100 meters and the 200 meters.
His winning times were 10.67
seconds and 21.40 seconds,
Ellis joined teammates Tevin
Jones, Brion Scott and James
Houston in capturing second

like that if the development
authority felt like they were
not getting the expected results,
then they should have looked
for a different model or they
should have taken $30,000 out
of the $74,000 that we give
"I propose again, that
based on the results of the
development authority over
the last 10 years...that we not
fund the development authority,
that we take that money and
we hire our own economic
developer, someone who would
be accountable to us," she said.
Feagle continued by stating
that she had learned the
commission's policy states a
board member on the losing
side of a vote cannot make a
motion to rescind that action,
a policy she called "totally
Commissioner Malcolm Page
said he was willing to change
the board's policy on that issue
only to allow Feagle to make
a motion. Commissioner Pat
Patterson seconded Page's
motion, and the measure passed
4-1 with Commission Mark
Wiggins, who represents the
board on the TCDA, voting
Feagle then made a motion
to rescind the funding for
the interlocal group. No one
offered a second, however, and
the measure died.
Discussion continued, with
Page pointing out that the
additional money will come
from a fund already designated
for economic development.
"It's still extra money we're
handing over for not having
much [result]," Feagle said.
"I think that's a matter of
opinion," Wiggins said. He also
countered Feagle's claims over
the TDCA's results ,over the
past 10 years, adding that he has
"probably not done a good job
in showing what TDCA does.
"We think we have the
upper hand, even without an
interstate because we have
our comprehensive plan, we
have our vision, we have our
infrastructure there. I think you
would be pleasantly surprised
over what TCDA has done over
10 years."
The commission went to
discuss some of TCDA's
"successes," including Lance's
$7.75 million expansion at
its Tom's Foods plant and a
28,000-square-foot expansion
to Thule's facility here, both
of which were assisted by the
Commission Chairman
Lonnie Houck mentioned
Buckeye's recent $40 million
energy-independence project,
which received some $7 million
from the state thanks in part to
a $205,000 match provided by
the TCDA. He pointed to the
tangible tax value benefit to the
county from the project.
Wiggins said the TCDA
board is preparing to meet
with the commission at its
workshop in May to discuss
economic development issues.
He also invited his fellow
commissioners to attend a
TCDA meeting.
Breer said he will present a
quarterly report on the TCDA's
activities to the commission
next month as well.

B-2 Taco Times April 27, 2011


from the office of Sen. Charles Dean

State parks offering half-price

admissions over 2 weekends

Editor's Note: The following
summary of the Legislature's
seventh week of business in
Tallahassee was featured in
Senator Charles Dean's weekly
newsletter, "The Dean Document,"
which was distributed Friday.
While the Florida Senate
did not meet in executive
session during the week, work
continued on budget and policy
negotiations as the Florida
Legislature moved forward
to end the session in a timely
manner on May 6.
Meanwhile, in response to
a letter from Senator Charlie
Dean sent on March 4, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
announced bay scallop season
will been stretched out to
cover three more weeks than
usual. This year the bay scallop

recreational harvest season will
begin a week early on June 25
and remain open two weeks
longer before closing on Sept.
Also, the Department of
Environmental Protection
announced this week it is
cutting admission to Florida
State Parks by half on Mother's
Day and again on Father's Day.
These half price days are May
8 and June 19. The reduced
admission will be offered at the
160 parks located around the
Sunshine State.
Other recreational bargains
being offered by the state are
two weekends of free saltwater
fishing. The first license-free
weekend will be during the
opening of red snapper season on
June 4 and 5. The second will be
Father's Day weekend on June

18 and 19. Wildlife officials
said Florida has 74 unique
saltwater fishing facilities,
including piers, boardwalks and
jetties. For more information
about half price days at Florida
State Parks, log on to www.
FloridaStateParks.org. More
information about free saltwater
fishing weekends can be found
at http://myfwc.com/fishing/
On top of working toward
a budget compromise with its
House counterpart, the Florida
Senate will meet in committee
in the coming week and will be
in session on the Senate floor
on Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday. Senator Charlie Dean
will have several bills moving
through the committee process,
as well as bills heard on the
Senate floor.

Each year

Florida visited by

41 million people

Florida attracts people who
enjoy the outdoors: anglers trying
to lure the big one, birdwatchers
waiting in silence, kids trying to
catch a glimpse of everything
from manatees and alligators
to Mickey Mouse, retirees who
saved a lifetime to come down,
and people from all walks of life
wanting to enjoy our warm rays
and vast outdoor recreational
Our state is known for hosting
millions of visitors each year -
some 41 million, to be exact.

Rodney Barreto
We are lucky to live in a state
that affords us the opportunity
to enjoy the outdoors most
months of the year. Just ask
those visiting from the North.
Where else can you experience
temperatures in the 80s in the
middle of February? While it is
no secret that Florida has diverse
recreational resources, what you
might not know about the fiscal
impact of fishing, hunting and
wildlife viewing in Florida could
surprise you.
Fish and wildlife contribute to
Florida's tourism industry. Each
year, $20 billion and 250,000
jobs come directly from fish
and wildlife in the state, and
an additional $18 billion and
another 200,000 jobs are the
indirect benefit of boating in
state waters.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conseration ,, Comnis .ion

and protects fishing and hunting

resources for this generation and
beyond. Those of us who work
for the FWC are thankful that
we get to enjoy the fruits of our
labor while positively impacting
others by creating jobs and
In fiscal year 2011-12 alone,
the combined revenue from
recreational fishing license sales
and federal aid through the
Sport Fish Restoration Program
is projected to be $45,229,260.
In today's economy, where
Florida families are doing more
with less, I am proud that the
FWC does its part every year to
contribute to the state's economy
in a winning way.
Wildlife viewing is a
significant economic engine
in Florida, accounting for $5.6
billion and 51,367 jobs of the
$20 billion and 250,000 jobs
noted earlier. The Great Florida
Birding and Wildlife Trail
represents only one aspect of
wildlife viewing enjoyed by
residents and visitors alike.
The FWC partnered with the
Wildlife Foundation of Florida
and the Florida Department of
Transportation to create this
network of 500 birding sites
and 2,000 miles of self-guided
highway trails.
During the February FWC
Commission meeting in
Apalachicola, my fellow
commissioners and I experienced
first-hand the impact of fishing
and its role in the economy of
the quaint fishing community.
We heard from residents and
business owners as we conducted
our meetings, toured an oyster-
processing company alongside
Gov. Rick Scott and enjoyed
lunch from the local bounty.
The community depends on the
marine life in its estuaries and
Gulf waters.
Apalachicola is a piece of
Florida locked away in time,
guided by the traditions of
years past. It rejuvenates us and
reminds us of the importance
of what we do at the FWC. We
take our responsibilities to heart
as we consider those who enjoy
