Molester gets 6 months

A registered child molester,
charged with violating his
probation, received significant
support from his church
congregation during a hearing
Monday, including testimony
from his pastor and a Taylor
County Sheriff's .Office
Despite the pleas, however,
Ed Webb, 63, of Salem, was
found to have violated his
probation for failing to follow
the directions of his probation
officer and sentenced to six
months in county jail along with

Additional work needed

for Woods Creek Road,

Harrison Blue paving
While work on Woods Creek and Harrison Blue roads was
originally slated to be a traditional mill, widen and overlay
project, it has been determined that it will require more involved
According to County Engineer Kenneth Dudley, Anderson
Columbia Construction Co., Inc., began working on the six-mile
widening project in mid-October with the initial milling portion of
the project.
. "However, within the first half-mile, the project was revised
when what was expected to be a single, nearly three-inch thickness
was found to be multiple layers including a much older ballast rock
layer," Dudley said.
"Once the top one-inch of the roadway was removed for crack
control and slope correction, not much was left to support traffic,"
he continued. "It was then decided that it would be best to install
the limerock widening strips and then mill a thinner half-inch
thickness which would shorten the time traffic would be driving
on the milled roadway and also leave a thicker road to support the
traffic. "Though successful at first, after placing nearly 70 percent
of the limerock widening,, the added load from construction traffic
degraded the road and exposed a weak underlying base layer.
Following several discussions between the county, designers and
project contractor, it was decided that Woods Creek and Harrison
Blue roads will need a "complete face lift."
"Specifically, the contractor will finish placing the limerock
widening and then add an additional depth of limerock directly on
the existing paved surface," Dudley said. "The asphalt road will
then be mixed together with the added limerock and underlying
layers to provide a much stronger and more consistent supporting

Blaze of patriotism

fills community for

Veterans Day salute

Staff writer
When Taylor County High School JROTC began hosting an
annual Veterans Day ceremony 25 years ago, the number of
veterans attending overflowed the stage.
World War II and Korean War veterans featured prominently in
that group, along with servicemen and women who answered the
call of duty in the wars and conflicts that followed.
But time has taken its toll on Taylor County's war veterans and
this year's celebration was not only a testament to those who have
passed, but also to the new generation of veterans who have taken
their place.
The red, white and blue salute was just the beginning of a day-
long celebrate of all veterans.
JROTC Cadet Major Joseph Franklin had the honor of
1% welcoming everyone to the morning ceremony, held in the school's
Students filled the bleachers and honored guests-veterans and
their fanmlie s-were seated in front of the stage.
The Pride of Taylor Band provided musical accompaniment to
the service, performing a variety of patriotic selections. A particular
source of pride was the medley of service songs. Each member of
the respective group was invited to stand and be recognized during
the song's performance: Army, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard and
Air Force.
Lt. Col. (Ret.) John J. DeVillez, senior Army JROTC instructor,
spoke of the "blaze of patriotism" burning brightly throughout the
program and community for the day.
"This is a joint salute from all of Taylor County," he said.
Army Private Joseph Allen Nettles, who was born in 1925 and
is a veteran of World War II, was recognized on stage. A member
of the Army infantry, Nettles took part in the initial invasion of
Normandy, DeVillez said.
The crowd gave Nettles a standing ovation.
Closing the program was the presentation of essays from winners
of the Voice of Democracy contest as well as the recitation of the
poem, "The Final Inspection."
A flag-raising ceremony was held at Veterans Memorial Park
following the JROTC program.
The family of the late Reed Willard Bass, a veteran of World War
II, donated the flag that now flies over the park; the flag taken down
honored World War I veteran William Gordon Brown.
A special Veterans Day luncheon, hosted by the Taylor County
Board of Commissioners, capped the day's activities. More than
100 attended the event, which was held at Forest Capital Park.

The new apartment complex is located behind Taylor Senior Citizens Center.

Negative thinking


Of all the things I've organized in
my life, my photographic negatives
were my pinnacle accomplishment.
Dating fro' ,T97.3, -my negatives
were painstakingly organized in
boxes specifically designed for such
a purpose. I did not delay this time-
intensive effort for my retirement
years; instead, I was diligent to keep
the pace, putting pictures in albums,
labeling each and filing negatives
in the accompanying slot. After
all, you: just never know when you
might need to make a new print, or
share an old one.
This organizational feat fostered
much false pride in me. Others
might not be able to recreate the
memories of Christmas 1985, but
I could. I had birthday parties,
reunions, church dedications,
piano. recitals and baseball games
preserved for generations to come.
Or I thought I did.
Just the other day, I gazed
longingly at my negatives. Not only
is 35mm film about to be obsolete
(and don't ask if I have any--I do),
but the capability of most photo
labs to make prints from 35mm
negatives will no longer exist. So
I don't need all these negatives. It
was a stunning realization.
Stunning, as in deer-in-the-
headlights stunning.
My ancestors kept Confederate
States bonds in trunks for years,
only to find out they were worthless
pieces of paper. Suddenly, I could
hear history repeating itself.
With a sinking feeling, I looked
down below my meticulously filed
negatives to gaze upon the second
stupidest thing I've ever spent an
inordinate amount of time and
money collecting: Disney's
classics. My videotapes of
"Cinderella," "Snow White,"
"Rapunzel," "Dumbo" and
"Bambi" are stored in a cool, clean
environment with such newcomers
as "Shrek" and Willy of "Free Willy."
The tapes are fine, mind you, but
soon there will be no VCR upon
which to play them.
"You just need to convert to
DVD," was the advice given, offered

I didn't receive it graciously. "Oh
no I don't. I'm not converting to
anything," I said with the kind of
defiance which only comes with age
and angst.
"If I go to all the trouble and
expense to put them on DVD, then
DVD will be obsolete."
Elvis has left the building, and I'm
getting off this hamster track, too.
"Well, you could do what Chuck
did," my friend said, and .she
:had my attention. "Buy up all the
remaining VCR's and store them
in the attic so you have one for all
your grandchildren. Then they can
enjoy the videotapes."
Well, honestly, I hadn't thought of
But the idea of putting one more
thing in my attic was more than I
could fathom.
So I sunk on the sofa, realizing
my scrapbooking, cataloguing days
might be coming to an end. A cloud
of sadness whirled around me and
wanted to envelope me when I
realized: like Willy, I'm free!
I've documented enough of the
world's history. I spent my first 50
years saving things, and I'm about to
embark upon the opposite activity
for my next 50. I am charmed by
history and driven by sentiment,
but I think I'm coming of age as a
practical person. I'm going to pare
down my worldly belongings and fill
up a landfill, for which I apologize
in advance.
I was so inspired by my new
objective that I began cleaning this
weekend when it was 29 degrees
outside and, thus, not 120 degrees
in the attic. I rid myself of three
bags of clothes and Christmas
decorations, a couple of outdated
light fixtures and some baby bottles.
Whenever cold weather coincides
with a Saturday, you will now find
me in the attic, throwing caution to
the wind and baby booties out the
air vents. Want some Jethro Tull
albums, photo files, VCR tapes,
crocheted placemats or fruitcake
tins? Just stand in my front yard
with your hands outstretched.
Manna is about to fall from

German from Czech Republic barks for PWC

A dog which "speaks"
Czechoslovakian was the
featured personality at this
month's Perry Woman's Club
meeting, so it's no wonder there
was a crowd to observe.
It, wasn't the club's
International Affairs meeting,
but it could have been. KAR, a
K9 partner' with the Perry
Police Department (PPD), is a
native of the Czech Republic.
To expand the globe further,

he's a German Shepherd.
"These dogs can do the work
of three or four people in a
building," said Jamie Cruse,
captain of operations for the
PPD, explaining how dogs can
navigate stairs and unfamiliar
territory in darkness, opening
doors and finding their way
into crevices humans can't
easily access. "Since the dog
already knows how to smell
and bite, most of the training is

for the handler," Cruse said,
introducing Ricky .Dice who
works as KAR's K9 handler.
That training, Cruse said, is
significant. "Ricky and the
other handler tra eled to
Gainesville for the canine
training program which
extended over 14 weeks and
accounted for 600 hours of
The department currently has
five dogs and Cruse has success

stories to prove their worth.
"We were informed of a
suicidal woman who had taken
an overdose of pills and went
into the woods. Because of
these dogs, we were able to
successfully track her and save
her life."
Cruse also related the K9
division's success in tracking a
drug dealer in the community

It's now a


l cottage'
The home of Earl Swann on
218 N. Washington St., shows
how a full-scale remodeling
project can turn a neglected
home into a charming cottage.
Featured on this year's Tour
of Homes, which is planned for
Sunday, Dec. 4, the house was
built in 1950 by A.R. (Roland)
and Thyra Hendry.
"Much of the lumber used in
the house came from an older
structure which was torn
down," explained Iris Parker
who is co-chairing this year's
tour with Jeanne Raulerson.

Bricks from the Emporium:are used to detail the entrance to Earl Swann's home

Ten Commandments
for Pet Owners
1. My life is likely to last 10-15
years. Any separation- from you
will be painful.
2. Give me time to understand
what you want from me. Do not
break my spirit with your temper,
though I will always forgive you.
Your patience will teach me. more
3. Please have me spayed or
4. Treat me kindly, my beloved
friend, for no heart in 11i tv world
Is more grateful for your kindness
than rrine. Don't be angry with
me for long,. and don't lock me
up as punishment. After all, you
have your job, your fnends, your
entertainment. I have only you.
5. Speak to me often. Even if I
don't understand your words, I
understand your voice when it's
speaking to me. Your voice is the
sweetest sound I ever hear, as
you must know by my enthusiasm
whenever I hear your footsteps.
6. Take me in when it's cold and
wet. I'm a domestic, animal and
am no longer accustomed to the
bitter elements. I ask for little
more than your gentle hands
petting me. Keep my bowl filled
with Nater. Feed me good food
so that I may stay well, to romp
and play and do your bidding. By
your side, I stand ready, able and
willing to share my life with you,
for that is what I live for. I'll rineer
forget how well you've treated me.
7. Don't hit me. Remember I have
teeth, that could easily crush the
bones in your hand, but I choose
not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being
lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself
if something might be bothering
me, Perhaps I'm not getting the
right food, I've been out in the
siJn too long, or my heart may be
getting weak.
9. Take care of me when I get old,
for you will grow old too. "!
10. When I am old, or when I no
longer enjoy good health, please
do not make heroic efforts to keep
me going. I am not having fun,
Just see to it that my trusting life
Is taken gently. And be with me
on that difficult journey when it's
time to say goodbye. Everything is
easier for me when you are there.
I will leave this earth knowing
with my last breath that my fate
was always safest in your hands.
Unconditional love comes
with four legs ,nd a lot of fur
In memory of Andy, Honey,
J.R., Bonnie, Suzie, Major
and Tarbaby..

lingual--at least with KAR,
who is two years old.

In this world of mass
communication, instant
gratification, television, the
internet and ,o0 many powerful
and opinionated people, it is
very difficult to stay focused
and grounded on what is right.
Every thing and everybody
wants our attention.
, Everybody has a different
philosophy and direction in
which to lead us. Hearing the
voice of Jesus and adhering to
his teachings and doctrines is
not always easy. The
competing voices want us to
believe wrong is right and evil
is good. We must be steadfast,
unmoveable, always abounding
in the word of God. Jesus
knows. These are perilous
times--times of war, loss of

jobs, homelessness, family
break-ups, disbelief in a higher
power and violence,
everywhere. There is no safe
haven anymore. Hunger in the
midst of plenty.
As believers, we know it's
not an attack on us, but on our
God. We are often
overwhelmed with decisions
and debts. But we must
remember, God has our back.
He gave us the assurance on
resurrection day when he
declares--all power is in my
hand. The battle is not ours, it's
the Lord's.
Listen. Listen until you
know it's the voice of Jesus.
Listen, until God gets your
attention and then we can be
sure that we are listening to the
divine voice of a faithful rand
merciful God. Are you

'Dogs win big on Senior Night 37-6

Numerous seniors came up
big on "Senior Night," but a
pair of sophomores provided
the offensive spark the Bulldogs
needed in a huge, 37-6 blow-out
win over Florida High, Friday
night at Dorsett Stadium.
Playing in place of senior
QB Eli Grambling -- who
injured his knee on the game-
winning TD run in a 22-21 win
over Marianna the previous
week -- sophomore QB
Daniel Wentworth ran for two
touchdowns and threw a pair of
TD passes to sophomore wide
receiver Moral Stephens, who
finished with 4 catches for 114
Wentworth had. a big first
half passing (completing 8 of
13 passes for 133 yards and
2 TDs), then powered Taylor
County on the ground in the
second half, rushing 11 times
for 65 yards and 2 more TDs.
Wentworth finished the night
11 of 19 passing for 188 yards
with 2 TDs and 1 interception,
while leading the Bulldogs in
rushing with 19 carries for 77
yards and 2 TDs.
Seniors Justin Becerra (20
tackles), Raydon Parker (14
tackles), Jalan Jackson (11
tackles), Wil Tuten (10 tackles)
and Connor Bishop (4 tackles)
all came up big in an outstanding

defensive effort, while senior
offensive linemen Blaine
Brenner, Justin McGuire and
Aaron Crews were instrumental
in the blow-out victory.
Becerra even got into the
action on offense, carrying 4
times for 46 yards and scoring
on a 37-yard TD run.
The Bulldog defense turned
in its most impressive game
of the season -- shutting out
Florida High for 3-1/2 quarters
before giving up a 57-yard TD
pass late in the game against
mostly back-ups.
Led by the play of seniors
Becerra (8 solo, 12 assists, 3
sacks, fumble recovery), Parker
(9 solo, 5 assists, 1 tackle for
loss), Jackson (6 solo, 5 assists,
2 tackles for loss, pass break
uip), Tuten (5 solo, 5 assists),
KJ. Johnson (5 solo, 4 assists,
1 tackle for loss, forced fumble).

and Bishop (2 solo, 2 assists,
1 sack, fumble rec.), Taylor
County's defense held the
Seminoles to only 22 total yards
prior to the 4th quarter -- during
which Florida High managed to
pick up 104 of .their total 126
yards of offense in the game.
Sophomore Evan Grambling
(10 tackles, fumble rec.) filled
in for Javolis McNeal (who
missed the game due to illness)
at linebacker and had an
outstanding game, as did fellow
sophomore Percy Jacobs (3
solo, tackle for.loss, 2 assists).
"Jalan Jacksont played
very well and really stepped
up," Bulldogs' Defensive
Coordinator Beau Johnson said.
"Justin Becerra seemed to be
everywhere and was in on every
play, while Raydoh Parker had
his best game of the season."
"Tuten had the best game of
his career. Jalan moved back
to his natural position (strong
safety) and it- showed. James
Strawter played phenomenal at
corner and Brion Scott played
very well," Head Coach Steve
Price added.
"Daniel Wentworth did a
great job. He showed some
nerves on, the first two series,
but once he completed that first
pass, he started rolling. I n
really proud of him and the way'
he stepped in and stepped up as

a sophomore," Price said.
"Our offensive line was
outstanding, especially both
of our tackles, who turned in
dominating performances, and
all five graded out the highest
they have all season," Price
When asked about sophomore
Moral Stephens, Price said, "He
gets better every game, not just
catching the ball, but blocking,
running routes and getting off
of jams. He really listens in
practice and tries to improve
every single day, We are really
excited about just how good he
can be."
In the first half, the Bulldogs
(7-3) held Florida High (5-5)'
to 84 total yards (47 rushing,
37 passing).; The Seminoles
finished the game with only
116 total yards after netting

The Seminoles managed only
9 yards rushing on 41 carries,
due in large part to 4 bad snaps
that sailed over QB Darius
Harvey's head for a total loss
of -80 yards and a bad punt
snap that resulted in a loss of 33
yards and a Bulldog safety..
Florida High had 7 fumbles
and lost 4. Taylor County
fumbled 4 times, but only
turned the ball over on an
interception and an onside kick
late in the game.
Florida High QB Harvey (11

TD) finished with 9 carries for
-90 yards, as he was sacked four
times for a loss of -17 yards in

in the fourth quarter against
second-string players, the
Bulldog defense would have
held the Seminoles to negative

Bulldog senior wide receiver
James Strawter had 2 catches
for 35 yards, including an
amazing one-handed 19-yard
catch and a short screen pass he
turned into a highlight reel 16-
yard reception.
Senior Brion Scott had 3
catches for 25 yards, while
fellow senior Jalan Jackson had
an 11-yard catch and Parker had
a 2-point conversion catch.
After punting on their first
two possessions, the Bulldog
offense got on track and
struck first with 57.4 seconds
remaining in the 1st quarter
with a lightning-quick 4-play,
59-yard drive that began with
two Wentworth runs for 11
yards and a 1st down. Scott
caught a 15-yard slant pass and
Stephens hauled in a perfect
33-yard post comer pass from

Wentworth to give the Bulldogs
a 6-0 lead.
Parker caught a fade pass
from Wentworth for the 2-point
conversion and an 8-0 lead.
Florida High fumbled on
their first two drives. Parker
made a big hit to force a fumble
recovered by Bishop on the first
drive, and a high snap sailed
over Harvey's head for a 30-
yard-loss to force a punt on the
Seminoles' second drive.
On those two defensive
series, Parker, Tuten, Strawter
(2 solo, 1 pass break-up),
Bishop, Darick Ward (3 solo,
,5 assists, 2 TFL, fumble rec.),
Becerra and Evan Grambling
(3 solo, 7 assists) all made
key stops, including a sack by
Johnson (5 solo, 4 assists, 1
TFL,"lTforced !fumble), Tutet,
Becerra, Parker, Calub Murphy
(4 solo, 1 assists) and Strawter
all made plays to force a third
straight Seminole punt to begin
the 2nd quarter.
The Bulldogs scored for
a second straight series
despite failing to field a punt
that bounced over Marcus
Hamilton's head for 53 yards.
Starting from his own
17, Wentworth ripped off a
9-yard run and pitched to Jake
Smymios (6 carries, 16 yards)
for a first down on 3rd and 1.
Scott made a 4-yard reception,
Strawter made a one-handed
catch, Wentworth ran for 5
and then dropped a pin-point
pass to Stephens, who made
an amazing over-the-shoulder
catch for a 42-yard TD.
Senior Brian Wilder tacked
on the extra point to give Taylor
a 15-0 lead with 6:02 left in the
After a big kickoff return
and a 15-yard personal foul
penalty on the Bulldogs gave
Florida High great starting field
position, Parker and Becerra
combined to sack Harvey for a
5-yard loss.
On the next play Johnson
forced a fumble recovered by

Evan Grambling at midfield.
Jackson made an 11-yard
reception for a 1st down and
Scott caught a 7-yard pass that
was called back for holding
before Wentworth threw three
straight incompletions to force
a punt.
Despite nice tackles by
Grambling, Johnson, Tuten
and Becerra and pass break-
ups by Jackson and Strawter,
the Seminoles drove 62 yards

line before missing a 37-yard
field goal just before halftime.

McBride, McGuire, Brenner
and Crews for a 5-yard gain and
then scored on a 1-yard plunge
before Wilder missed the PAT
with 6:32 left in the 3rd quarter.
The Bulldogs got the ball
right back when another high
shotgun snap flew over Harvey's
head and was recovered by
Becerra at the 15-yard line.
Wentworth hit Stephens for
what appeared to be their third
TD pass on the very next play,
but a defender knocked the ball
loose in the endzone.
Wentworth scored from 15
yards out on the next play to give
the Bulldogs a commanding
28-0 lead with 5:55 remaining
in the 3rd quarter after Wilder's
After a 63-yard kickoff return
by Florida High, Ward stopped
a run and Jackson made back-
to-back big tackles to force the

Seminoles to turn the ball over
on downs.
Wentworth had a pass picked
off for the only turnover of the
night, but no damage was done,
as Florida High continued 'to
self destruct losing 11 yards
on a fumble and getting hit
with a holding penalty before
Becerra sliced through the line
for an 8-yard sack.
On 4th and 20, the punt snap
sailed over the head of the
punter, who was forced to kick
the ball through the back of the
endzone for a safety rather than
risk giving up a touchdown, to
give Taylor a 30-0 lead.
The Bulldogs got the ball
back at their own 39 after the
ensuing free kick and Smyrnios
broke a 25-yard run that
was 'called back for holding.
Becerra, Wentworth, Smyrnios
and Marcus Hamilton all
carried the ball as the Bulldogs
moved down to the Seminoles'
18-yard line, but a high snap

over Wentworth's head resulted
in a 6-yard loss on a 4th and
inches play.
Florida High scored on a 57-
yard TD pass, but sophomore
Percy Jacobs (3 solo, 2 assists,
1 tackle for loss) made a stop on
the 2-point play.
The Seminoles recovered the
onside kick, but gave the ball
back in just two plays, as Jacob
Thomas and Parker sacked
Harvey, and Ward recovered yet
another bad snap fumble over
Harvey's head.
Wentworth pitched to
Becerra on an option play, and
the senior linebacker scored
untouched from 37 yards out to
cap the scoring with 2:44 left in
the game.
Jacobs, Jackson, Davis Helm
(2 solo) and Ben Sadler (2
assists, QB pressure) helped
hold Florida High out of the
endzone on their final drive to
preserve the 37-6 win.
The Bulldogs won their

third iiiit game to finish
the ir iil.n season 7-3 and
sent Florida High to their 4th
straight loss after the Seminoles
started the season 5-1'.
For the thlurd straight year,
Taylor County finished the
regular season with a record
of 7-3 or better and made the
playoffs the first time in
school history the Bulldogs
made the playoffs, three years
in a row.
The Bulldogs went 7-3 in
2009 and lost in the first round

"The downfall of this

Stay prepared after hurricane season ends

Assistant County Administrator &
Emergency Management Director
As we are nearing the end of
yet another very active and (for
Taylor County) very fortunate
hurricane season, .1 wanted
to take a second to stress that
we must continue our disaster
preparedness and mitigation
Hurricane season may be
coming to an end, but frost,
severe storm, tornado and fire
seasons will be here before we
know it. Please continue to be
active in preparing your families

and businesses to respond and
recover from any type of disaster.
Make a plan and exercise it
and build a disaster supplies
kit. For any help or assistance
please do not hesitate to contact
the Emergency Management
Department. To help hammer
this point even further please
read the note about severe
storms and tornadoes, I received
from the state:
"It's crazy to think that Florida
is considered the thunderstorm
capital of the US. While we
may not be getting any visits
from Stormchasers or getting

our own show on Discovery, our
state experiences both hazards
quite frequently. Florida leads
the nation in lightning related
deaths and sits with the top 10
states for tornadic destruction.
Our average activity per year has
been about 51 since 1950.
"This is important to note
since we are usually seen as
a hurricane state. It's very
important in our mitigation
efforts to know our hazards."
Severe Storm and Tornado
1. Florida ranks 4th in the
number of tornado events in the

2. Since 2007 Florida has
experienced over 140 tornadoes
and lost over 20 lives in those
3. Florida's deadliest tornadic
event occurred February 22' &
23, 1998 where 42 people were
killed and 260 were injured.
4. There are over 850,000
mobile homes within the State
and more than 500,000 of those
are located in coastal counties.

of the worst tornadoes, Florida
experiences more tornadoes per

Taylor County Farm Bureau

recognizes Farm City Week

Taylor County Farm Bureau
will sponsor a special Farm City
Week breakfast Friday, Nov. 18,
for local officials to celebrate
Farm City Week for 201.
"Agriculture is the second
largest industry in Florida just
behind tourism. The purpose
of Farm City week is simple.
It focuses on promoting better
understanding between folks
who live on farms and who
live in urban areas. These two
great segments of our American
society are dependent upon
each other," Taylor County
Farm Bureau President Helen
Houck said.
Kiwanis Clubs International
started Farm City Week 55
years ago. A Presidential
Proclamation and a joint

Congressional Resolution
designate the week leading up
to and including Thanksgiving
Day as Farm City Week
across America. Some 1,600
communities throughout the
country will recognize the
"We believe that the events
and activities of Farm City Week




will create a greater awareness
of the types and sizes of farms
in our area. Taylor County is a
vitally important agricultural
county, with timber and cattle
being our largest crops," Houck
The upcoming breakfast will
include the signing of a county
proclamation for Farm City
"Agriculture is an extremely
important industry to our local
economy. Florida is among the
top ranked food production
states in the nation. We are
also glad to be part of this
celebration, because we know
how important the urban folks
are as well as those who live on
our farms and ranches," Houck
