Mayor will not
seek third term
on city council
Mayor Emily Ketring has announced that she will not be seeking
re-election to her City Council, Dist. 3, seat.
"When I ran in 2004, I stated that I would serve no more than
two consecutive terms; therefore, I am not seeking re-election.
Honestly, I do not ever want to become complacent. It has indeed
been my honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Perry and I
hope to serve again sometime in the future'" she said Tuesday.
"There have been many accomplishments over the last eight
years, but I do not dare take credit as an individual. The city is in
good financial health and it allows the taxpayers to enjoy a low
tax rate that is very important in difficult financial times," Ketring

Phase I of Granger
sewer project lines
Engineers have certified Phase I of the Granger Subdivision
sewer project, which means that "we are ready to begin hooking
houses up," City Manager Bob Brown said Tuesday.
City engineers put their final stamp of approval on nearly one-
third of the construction Friday. encompassing all of Robin and
Carter streets as well as parts of Bacon. Quail and Granger streets.
"There are a total of three phases in the project. We are close on
the other two," Brown said.
The city is still in talks with the bond company backing the project,
Auto-Owners Insurance, to address the project's completion.
The city fired original contractor Ben Withers, Inc.. in August
2011: however, Auto-Owners reached an agreement with the
contractor to return to work on the project at uhs own expense.
Work resumed m November 2011 and was to be completed within
90 days. But the contractor filed for bankruptcy in early February,
bringing work to a halt once again.
"The bond company has a hearing Thursday before a bankruptcy
judge seeking to have the automatic stay (related to the work) set
aside so that they can hire contractors to get back to work on the
project," Brown said.
"We have entered the penalty phase of the contract, which calls
for the bond company to pay the city $90,000 plus accrued fees of
$1,000 per day."
County faces paying steep Medicaid bills
Despite pleas from counties
across the state, the Florida
Legislature on Friday approved
a measure requiring local
governments to pay three years'
worth of contested bills, a move
w which is projected to cost Taylor
County hundreds of thousands
The bill will now go to

law, counties are responsible for
35 percent of bills for extended
hospital stays (days 11 to 45)

county, regardless of where in
the state they receive treatment.
"The bill focuses on the
flawed Medicaid billing system
overseen by the Agency for
Health Care Administration,"
the Florida Association of
Counties (FAC) said in a
statement following the bill's
"The bill strips counties of
half-cent sales tax revenue to
cover 85 percent of their past

The bill will now go to
Gov. Rick Scott for his
The 2010 septic tank law
drew complaints locally over its
potential cost to homeowners
and the Taylor County
Commission passed a resolution
in November 2010 asking the
Legislature to repeal it.
According to officials
with the Taylor County
Health Department, there are
approximately 12,000 septic
tank permits in the county,
which would have resulted in
some 2,400 inspections per
Attempts to repeal the
legislation last year failed,
but language was added to
delay the implementation of
the inspection program so
several lawmakers tried again

Sen. Charles Dean, whose
district includes Taylor County,

which would have repealed
the statewide inspection
program and replaced it with
an optional, standard septic
system inspection program for
all counties and municipalities

Although SB 820 passed
four committees, its progress
in the Senate stalled and
was not scheduled for a floor
Its language, however, was
added in full as an amendment
to a bill reorganizing the Florida
Department of Health, which
passed 31-9 in the Senate and
86-29 in the House.
Under the new language,
instead of the statewide
program, any county .which

water discharge of greater

required to implement its own

to the standards set forth in the
Those counties could
opt out of the requirement,

not contain a first-degree
spring would not be required
to implement an inspection
program but would have the
option to do so.

A-2 TacoTimes March 14,2012
Remember the people
who are here for you
To the citizens of Taylor
County, I ask for your attention
for just a few minutes to place
my true feelings before this
community, for that matter,
the entire county. I hope to be
brief so as not to bore or upset
My name is Mary Ann
Barnett; many of you know
me as a friend, past-school
mate etc...but most of you also
know me as a paramedic that
worked at Doctors' Memorial
Hospital Emergency Medical
I say "worked," because due
to pressing medical issues, I
had to resign a position that I
truly loved and was blessed to
do. I will miss it greatly and the
people that I worked with. They
were and still are my family.
Since I have left, I have
been troubled with some
peoples' remarks and opinions
concerning DMH-EMS. These
statements anger and hurt me
very much and that is why I
am writing this letter to you
in hopes of clearing some fog
around peoples' perceptions of
just what these people do.
First, you should be assured in
knowing that the people of this
county are protected by one of
the most talented and dedicated
groups of people in EMS. They
are very educated apd continue
to go to classes frequently "on
their own dime" just so they
can do the very best job for you.
The education that one has to
go through in order to perform
the skills that these EMTs and
paramedics do is long, intense
and very expensive.
The expense is not just
monetary, but a personal one
as well. These people are
away from their loved ones for
days at a time. It is very, very
difficult to have a solid family
foundation; it is only through
the love and support that they
receive at home that makes
them do this kind of work.
Some of these people drive
from very long distances just to
Most of you don't take any
time out of your busy lives
to think about these people.
There is very little appreciation
attached to this profession..
Yes, you see them eating in
restaurants, laughing and trying
to have a good time. What's
wrong with that? EMS people
are human also.
If you take time to think
about what they go through in
one day, not to mention just one
week, you might have different
thoughts on the matter.
Yes, there are times that you
will not be able to go to the
hospital of your choice, but it's
not the fault of DMH-EMS.
The state of Florida mandates
very stringent rules on the
transportation and treatment of
the sick and injured. All EMS
services have to abide these
rules, they have no choice. So,
it's nothing personal, the goal is
to get you to where you need to
go as soon as possible.
A vehicle is like any other
mechanical device, if it can
cause you a problem, it will.
That's why Marty Tompkins
worked so hard to get new EMS
vehicles, as well as Mr. Huth
and the grants personnel. All of
these wonderful people have a
job to do and they do it well,
So, before you think
unfriendly or bad thoughts
about DMH-EMS, remember
this. They are there ready to
help you through the worst day
of your life.
Please tell them "thank you,"
shake their hand or give a hug
when you see them, even if
you have never had to use
them. You may not want to be
there for them, but they are
always there for you, no matter

TCMS baseball team defeats
Wakulla 11-7, Fla.High 11
The Taylor County Middle
School baseball team won two
out of three games last week.
The Bulldogs defeated
Wakulla Middle School by
a score of 11-7 on Monday.
Offensively the Bulldogs were
led at the plate by Sean Patterson
(2-2), Noah Blanco (2-3) with
a triple and Caleb Wentworth
(2-3). Others who contributed
with hits included Ross Brenner
and Tanner Hammock.
The 'Dogs were led
defensively by the pitching
performances of Trevor
Hathcock, Tanner Hammock
and Wyatt Russell. All three
pitchers combined to hold
the visiting team to 7 runs on
no hits. Hathcock started the
game and faced 13 batters,
surrendering 4 runs, striking out
2 and walking 3 before giving
way to Hammock who faced
2 batters giving up 2 runs and
walking 2. Russell finished up
on the mound facing 12 batters,
4 and walking 3.
Immediately after the game
the two schools had arranged to
play an exhibition game to give
the younger players on both
squads an opportunity to get
Starting on the mound for the
Bulldogs was 6th grader Henry
Blue. Blue had an outstanding
outing facing 16 batters
surrendering 2 hits while
striking out 2 and walking 2.
Another 6th grader, Joshua
Mixon, saw his first action on
the mound as a Bulldog and also
turned in a great performance
facing 12 batters, giving up 3
hits and walking 3.
Thursday the Bulldogs
traveled to Wakulla County to
take on Riversprings Middle
School and were defeated by
a score of 10-0. Errors, walks
and poor hitting all contributed
to the loss.
Friday the Bulldogs returned
home and took their frustrations
of the previous day's loss out
on the Florida High Seminoles.
The Bulldogs combined great
pitching, defense and hitting to
rout the Seminoles 11 to 2.
Trevor Hathcock had his best
pitching outing of the year as
he dominated the Florida High
batters. Hathcock faced 24
batters surrendering 2 runs on
4 hits, while striking out 3 and
walking 5. Wyatt Russell came
on in relief and finished the
game surrendering no runs, no
hits and recording 3 strikeouts.
Offensively the local squad
was led at the plate by Hathcock
