K-9 leads officers to suspect

A man who allegedly took
part in the robbery of a local
convenience store Sunday
morning, Oct. 14, was
arrested when Perry Police
Department (PPD) K-9s
led officers from the store
directly to a nearby house

and the suspect inside.
Officers responded to an
alarm around 3:30 a.m. at
Star Food Mart on Jefferson
Street to discover the front
door glass broken and the
cash register missing.
When the owner arrived,

the officers examined the
store's video surveillance,
which showed two black
males breaking the glass
and entering the store.
"One of the suspects
entered the store and took
the cash register off the

counter while the other
entered the store carrying a
black cloth bag and took a
beer from the cooler," PPD
Sgt. Dave Gorby said in his

Rotary, city make splash in downtown Perry

With the Perry City
Council moving forward
with its ambitious plans
for the new Rosehead Park,
the Perry Rotary Club has
joined forces with the city to
help fund the construction
of the planned splash pad.
The handicapped-
accessible, 600-square
foot splash pad will be
located adjacent to the

playground and farmers'
market pavilion and
feature 16 water jets as
well as four implements,
including a series of rings,
a tall umbrella-like
structure and a shower-type

calls for canopy-

covered sidewalks
Architectural firms will be presenting their ideas and
concepts for "hard built" canopies/covered sidewalks for
the downtown square and connecting blocks during the
Perry City Council's next regular meeting, Tuesday, Oct.
Covered sidewalks were a key recommendation of the
recently completed Downtown Revitalization Report, City
Manager Bob Brown said.
"Firms wishing to be considered had to attend a
mandatory meeting Sept. 19 that included a walk around
the Centennial District of downtown. The firms then
had to submit documentation to the city in a Request for
Qualifications requirement. The finalists will make their
presentations to the city council, which will rank the firms
in their order of preference. We will then enter negotiations
with the highest ranked firm to settle on a fee for their
services," he explained.
"We invited members of the public to attend this meeting

said Rotary Club Vice
President Mark Viola.
The estimated cost of the
splash pad is approximately
$14,000 and the club

has pledged $5,000 to
the project.
They are also seeking
a $2.000 Rotary grant
and expect to know by
early November if their
application is successful.
The city will provide the
remaining funds.

contributions, Perry

concerns about the vay
Taylor County residents

county leaders. Every single
person living in Perry and/

be outraged at the way the

was handled.
We are sending local
revenue, generated by
our residents, to another
state and eliminating jobs
that could help keep local
people working in our own
community. As a contractor
who was born, went to

percent to an out-of-town
contractor, I could just
as well be slapped in the

case, every member of the

Midweek Muddle

The fabric of

our lives...

On a recent whirlwind trip to
my hometown, I drove five hours
and had exactly 15 minutes to get
my luggage out of one car before
driving another one, with my
aunt in tow, to Broadway Under
the Stars, on the grounds of the
Alabama Shakespeare Festival in
Montgomery, Ala.
That's when I realized I had not
packed my hairspray.
While not tragic, this is a
frightening realization on a day
which is already 10 hours long and
is going to last another six.
"Can you put your hairspray in
your purse?" I asked by telephone
of the 89-year-old aunt who, 14
minutes later, was waiting at the
street with her
purse on her arm.
"You can keep -
that one," she ,'
said, handing
me a can of .
hairspray. "It's ,
almost empty."
I stepped out of "-
the car to plaster .'-
my hair so that .
it would hold up, whether I did or
Then we traveled another
50 miles and listened to the
Alabama Symphony Orchestra's
performance of tunes from
"Chorus Line," "Chicago" and "The
Sound of Music" while enjoying a
picnic supper on a family quilt.
"Where did you get this quilt?" I
casually inquired of my cousin.
She looked guilty. "It's one
of Grandmother's," she said,
defensively. My aunt stared into
the distance, and not because she's
senile, but because she can smell
cousin rivalry in the air.
"I love it," I said longingly.
"You got quilts too," she said.
"Not this one," I added.
"Well, 1 probably shouldn't tell
you about the one I really love,"
she said, and my aunt looked at
her as if to ask, "Are you crazy?"
"Grandmother embroidered her
name in the main square, Zettie
Mallette, Sept. 3, 1934. Other
squares have other family names;
all the dates are 1934, 1935 or
My mouth dropped open in
"How did you get that one?" I
"You need to share that quilt
with your cousin," my aunt said
quickly to her daughter, trying to
stay within my good graces at least
until the return trip to her home
was completed that evening.
Our picnic spread was the envy
of music lovers to our left and
right. My cousin,, who apparently
inherited all the good quilts,
also got the kitchen wizardry
gene. She prepared beautiful
little sandwiches of homemade
pimiento cheese with jalapenos, as
well as pickled okra her husband
grew and canned, steamed shrimp
with cocktail sauce, curry dip with
fresh vegetables, fruits and an
assortment of cheeses, and for
dessert, individual pecan tassies.
I decided not to be mad at her
anymore about the quilts.



The next morning, the three of us
were to rise and shine, in order to
travel in yet another direction for a
tour of old homesites important to
our family.
I used the last of my aunt's
hairspray for I knew there would
be many challenges in the next 12
I jumped into the front seat of
yet another vehicle and, as we were
leaving town, my cousin made
a quick turn to the left. "I need
hairspray," she said.
"I do, too," said the aunt.
"Well, I do too," I added, singing
the third verse, and apologizing for
using all of my aunt's hairspray.
We marched like ducklings
in a row to the
shelf in the store
where hair care
products reside,
each heading to
M- her specific brand
before proceeding
to check out.
"Are y'all
sisters?" a man
-asked of me
and my cousin. There is a family
resemblance, but we rarely field
that question.
"No sir. Cousins," she told him.
"Your hair's just alike in the
back," he said. Then he remarked,
looking at our merchandise, "And
you're all getting hairspray."
We nodded and laughed, as we
exited the store.
"Did you notice that?" I asked my
cousin as she cranked the car.
"What?" she said.
"Guess who got the most
expensive hairspray?" I asked.
She looked down toward my bag
and I just shook my head. We both
turned to the backseat where my
aunt-her mother-sat.
"You bought the most'expensive
hairspray," I repeated so the aunt
could hear. "Four dollars and 39
cents," I told my cousin.
Her mouth dropped open. "Four
dollars and 39 cents?" she repeated
in question form.
"I like Tresemme," the aunt said.
"It's worth the extra money."
We looked at each other in
shock. How is it possible that
this woman could defend such
a purchase when she rinses out
ziptop bags and shops faithfully at
"How much was yours?" my
cousin asked of me.
"A dollar and 49 cents," I said.
"Mine was the cheapest," she
then exclaimed with surprise. She
knew her mother would be proud.
In our family, if you spend the least
and look the best, you win.
"What do you use?" I asked with
condescension, looking at her bag.
"White Rain," the cousin said.
"One dollar and 19 cents."
I crinkled my nose
"That stuff's glue," her mother
said from the back seat, and we
both laughed.
But 12 hours later, after a couple
of late afternoon showers and
another 150 miles on the road, my
cousin had the last laugh and the
best hair.
She got all the good quilts, too.

Autumn has definitely arrived. Fall foliage is abundant
.on my farm along the edges of the hayfield: Goldenrod,

'around through our family. You might like it also.
Corn & Sausage Chowder
In a large heavy pot, cook one pound of Jimmy Dean
sausage with sage.
Drain. Add one diced onion to pot, cook until onion is
clear. Add 3 c. diced potatoes and then 1 c. water. Cook
until potatoes are tender.
Add 2 cans creamed corn and 1 can whole kernel corn.
- Add 1 can evaporated milk.
Then add salt and pepper to taste.
Add more water or milk if too thick.
Cook until heated through.

Hello fellow Taylor County Voters,
As the election approaches I
"l would like to share a little bit
About Jerry Register. I am not
qualified to comment on his
opponent, but I have an insight
on Jerry Register, the man I call
Dad, that no-one else shares.
He did not just make a point to
teach me what loyalty, hard work
and integrity mean, he showed me through his business
encounters, interactions with friends from church and the
community. For all of my 32 years of life he has always
been the same stand-up man, day in and day out. Most
importantly, he showed me by example how he cared for
our family. With Dad, your word meant everything, and
with Dad, his word means everything.
Jeremy Register

On November 6 VOTE Jerry Register, my Dad,
for Taylor County Property Appraiser.

My yard will never be mistaken for the mountains
of North Carolina, but I still appreciate the beauty
of the changing seasons.
As I took a needed break on my front porch
yesterday from the daily chores of a household
which sees a constant influx of grandchildren,
Nature graciously gave me a treat. The gentle
breeze stirred the leaves on the dogwood trees
causing them to lose their hold on the branches
as they made their swirling descent to the ground.
Their red and yellow colors looked like tiny specks
of colored dust as they were carried on the wind
currents to settle comfortably on the grassy carpet
of the yard.
It was a true "aaww" moment that took precedence
over my annual urge to rake up the errant leaves
practically before they hit the ground. I made a
pledge to myself right then and there to extend
the joyous moment by leaving the leaves in their
resting place just a while longer. If I can't go to
the mountains to savor their bounty of changing
seasons it's up to me to bring the changing season
to Florida. It might be a stretch of the imagination
to some, but I've never been short of the ability to
create my own comfort space. If I squint my eyes
and focus on the array of fall beauty offered by the
trees I can almost see the shape of mountains in
the distance against the skyline.
The ability to imagine was nurtured by my
parents from as far back as I remember. One of
Mama's favorite sayings was: "Bloom where you're
planted"...I took it to mean, "If you don't like what
life is offering you, try changing it."
Daddy was the master storyteller in the family.
After his long days of cutting and hauling logs out
of the Taylor County woods, he would get home
well after the sun had set. Supper was family time
as we gathered around the big kitchen table that
sat smack-dab in the center of the room. The smell
of the just-cooked food circled around the room as
Mama dipped the food into bowls from the cooking
pots that were simmering on the stove awaiting
Daddy's arrival.
When Daddy finally put the last bite of food in his
mouth, chewing slowing, he would push his chair
away from the table and look at the expectant faces
of his children who waited quietly. It was story time!
And, oh, what stories he could tell--adventures
of the perils of harvesting the trees in the woods
would become a tale of Daddy's cunning courage
against the snake-infested battleground of Florida's
swampland--the animals he encountered during
the day became magical creatures who welcomed
him to their kingdom. His closing remarks always
cautioned us to respect the woods by never taking
more than was necessary.
Although my parents have been gone some 40
years, I continue to create the same atmosphere for
my family. Lima beans are cooked in the crockpot
at my house, but the smell is the same. The rich
smell of baking cornbread fills the kitchen as we sit
down at the dinner table to carry on the tradition
of family mealtime. Our laughter is interrupted by
children sharing their latest episodes and their
Papa Walker has become the family storyteller. His
stories of working in the grocery store are peppered
with the same daring adventures as Daddy as he
tells about the perils of working in the dangerous
aisles of moving grocery buggies.
Life truly is what we make it. It can be an
adventure to be savored every day or it can be an
exhausting drag, only to be endured. It's our choice.
I choose to enjoy it by imagining the beauty of a
North Carolina morning with the changing colors of
autumn while rocking on my porch in Florida. And
I most definitely choose to keep the stories alive for
the next generation of our family...I intend to bloom
where I'm planted. You can too!

A-8 Taco Times October 17, 2012

Game featured 34 combined penalties

'Dogs outlast Jefferson for 13-12 win

Led by a tremendous
defensive effort and a near-
perfect passing performance
by QB Daniel Wentworth,
the Taylor County Bulldogs
won a gritty, penalty-
plagued contest over rival
Jefferson County, 13-12
Friday night at Dorsett
Stadium in Perry.
In a game marred by a
combined 34 penalties,
the Bulldog defense held
the defending Class A
state champion Jefferson
County's Tigers to just 12
points, and Taylor County's

offense managed just
enough big plays to go along
with Evan Ward's two clutch
field goals in a thrilling one-
point win.
Wentworth completed
16 of 18 passes for 156
yards and scored the game-
winning touchdown on a
spectacular 33-yard run
in the 4th quarter to finish
with 91 yards rushing on 13
As Taylor County
celebrated "Senior Night,"
Bulldog senior tailback Jake
Smyrnios had his best game
of the season, carrying 21
times for 161 yards, while
Moral Stephens (6 catches
for 96 yards) and Chance
Rodgers (6 catches for 53
yards) hauled in key passes
for the Bulldogs.
After the Tigers scored

a touchdown with 7:26
remaining in the game to
pull within 13-12, Bulldog
safety Luke Kallschmidt
made a game-saving,
shoestring tackle to trip
up Jefferson County QB
Lenorris Footman just
inches shy of the goal line
on a two-point conversion
run that would have given
Jefferson a 14-13 win.
Evan Ward booted field
goals from 20 and 27 yards,
and just missed a 42-yarder
to help give the Bulldogs the
one-point victory.
Taylor County got an

outstanding effort from
Defensive Coordinator Beau
Johnson's "Brick Squad"
defense, which forced
two 3rd quarter fumbles
(recovering both) and held
Jefferson's talented QB
to 17 yards on 13 carries
thanks to 3 sacks and 3 runs
for no gain.
"I feel like our defensive
front got enough pressure,
and our defensive backs
kept everything in front of
them. I could not have asked
the kids to execute any
better. They did a great job,"
Johnson said. "I am proud of
the whole team. This was a
great team effort.
"I am especially proud
of our defense for adjusting
and buying in all week. The
kids and coaches did not ask
why we had safeties playing

defensive ends, outside
linebackers playing safety
and defensive linemen
rotating in and out every
two plays," Johnson added.
"These are all things coaches
would never have done 10
years ago. The kids and
coaches took pride in their
position and just wanted to
win. I admire our kids here.
Every week we face teams
with way more athleticism,
but we play with heart. It
is hard to measure heart.
Coach Smith and Coach
Bond did an awesome job
getting our running game
The Bulldogs offensive
line Chase Barger, Jacob
Thomas, Andrew McBride,
Ja'Nard Robson and Jacob
Barr -- paved the way to
victory as Taylor County
rushed for a season high 229
yards and gave up only one
sack on the night.
Taylor County out-gained
Jefferson 385-313 and held
a 19-13 edge in first downs,
but came out on the wrong
end of the penalty total, as
the Bulldogs were hit with
a whopping 18 penalties for
182 yards, while the Tigers
were flagged 16 times for
130 yards.
The Tigers last two
fumbles, while the Bulldogs
lost one and had a bad
punt snap that resulted in
a 39-yard loss, but Taylor
County's defense held
Jefferson out of the endzone
after what appeared to be a
game-changing play late in
the first quarter.
Taylor County put
together an impressive 10-
play, 68-yard drive down to
the Tiger 5-yard line on the
opening series of the game,
but Wentworth had the ball
stripped away and lost a
fumble to end the drive
inside the Tiger 10-yard line.
The Bulldog defense held
and forced a punt, thanks to
a pad-popping hit by senior
defensive lineman Tyler
Evans, and the Bulldogs
drove to midfield before the
drive stalled.
A high punt snap sailed
over Wentworth's head and
resulted in a 39-yard loss

Taylor County's Luke Kallschmidt (20) moves in to make a tackle during
recent action. The junior safety made a shoestring tackle late in the game
Friday to thwart a two-point conversion and preserve the 13-12 victory.

that gave the Tigers 1st and
10 from the Taylor County
However, the Bulldog
defense came up huge to
keep the game scoreless,
forcing a fumble that was
recovered for a 6-yard loss
on 1st down,-then getting
big tackles from Davis
Helm and Javolis McNeal,
as well as a great pass rush
from Calub Murphy and
Jamarcus Robertson to force
back-to-back incompletions
that forced the Tigers to
come away scoreless.
Smyrnios ripped off a
39-yard gain, then barreled
through a big hole for a 28-
yard gain and a first down
on 3rd and 11 before picking
up another first down on two
more carries for 11 yards.
Wentworth used a great
play-action fake to complete
a 10-yard pass to Jaymonte
McLeod (3 catches, 5 yards)
and Art Nelson ran for 7
yards down to the 3.
However, the drive stalled
inside the 5-yard line when
the Bulldogs couldn't punch
it into the endzone on runs
by Smyrios and Wentworth.
But. Evan Ward drilled a
20-yard field goal to give
the Bulldogs a 3-0 lead with
8:05 left in the 2nd quarter.
Thanks to a key 15-

yard "roughing the punter"
penalty against the Bulldogs,
the Tigers put together a
long 14-play drive that ate
most of the remaining time
off the clock in the first half
and ended with a 3-yard TD
Jefferson's PAT missed
wide left to make the score
6-3 with just 31.5 seconds
left in the half.
Javolis McNeal caught
a line-drive kickoff and
returned it 20 yards to
midfield to give Taylor a

chance to score.
A 4-yard pass to Rodgers
and a 21-yard QB keeper
by Wentworth gave the
Bulldogs a shot at tying the
score going into halftime,
but Ward's 42-yard field
goal sailed just wide to the
right to keep the lead at 6-3
as time ran out in the half.
Tyler Evans set the tone
for the second half on the
third play of the 3rd quarter,
making a crushing tackle

and stripping the ball loose
on a run up the middle.
Calub Murphy recovered for
the Bulldogs, and Smyrnios
carried lour straight times
for 19 yards down inside the
5-yard line.
A 15-yard chop block
penalty pushed Taylor back
out to the 19-yard line, and
Wentworth threw a quick
screen to Stephens, who
drug three defenders 9 yards
to the 10.
On 4th and goal, Ward
nailed a 27-yard field goal
to tie the game 6-6 with 8:03
remaining in the 3rd quarter.
Evans, Javolis McNeal
and KeVarius Franklin made
big tackles and Jermaine
Watkins stripped the ball
loose from a Tiger receiver
after a catch to force a
fumble that was recovered
by Johnny Anderson.
Neither team managed to
score again in the 3rd, but a
shanked punt by Jefferson
gave the Bulldogs great
field position to start the, 4th
quarter at their own 45.
Stephens turned a' short
bubble screen pass into a
20-yard gain and on 1st and
10 from the 33, Wentworth
faked a hand-off to Smyrnios
and took off for a 33-yard
TD run to put the Bulldogs
up 12-6.
Ward's PAT made the
score 13-6 with 11:33 to
play in the game.
The Tigers broke a 65-
yard kickoff return that was
called back for holding, but
put together a 10-play drive
that ended with a 1-yard TD
run by Footman to pull the
Tigers within 13-12.
Jefferson went for the
two-point conversion and
the win, but failed when the
Bulldogs defense came up
big not once, but twice!
Johnny Anderson broke up
the first 2-point conversion
pass, but was flagged for
pass interference, moving
the ball just outside of the
1-yard line.
On the 2-point play re-
try, Footman rolled out to
his right and threatened
to throw, but tucked and
ran when he couldn't find
an open receiver. Luke
Kallschmidt dove and
tripped Footman up just shy
of the goal line to preserve
the 13-12 lead with 7:26
remaining in the game.
The Bulldogs went
backwards on their next
drive, as Smyrnios lost 1
yard, and McLeod caught
back-to-back screen passes
and was tackled behind the
line of scrimmage for a total
loss of 5 yards.
Wentworth (averaging
41.6 yards per punt this
season) boomed a 50-yard
punt and Evan Grambling

8-yard loss.
The Tigers were forced to
punt on 4th and 22, but nearly
picked uip a lirst down when
the Bulldogs were hit with
a 15-yard unsportsmanlike
conduct penalty or barking
out a fake snap count on the
punt play.
After the punt, Smyrnios
picked up 41 yards on three
carries to help pick up three
first downs, but the Bulldogs
were hit with back-to-back
unsportsmanlike conduct
and personal foul penalties.
Wentworth threw a
perfect sideline fade pass

so proud of my Brick Squad

In addition to having his
best game of the season

passing streak in which he
has completed an amazing
84 percent of his passes. The
junior QB completed 15 of

classroom lessons, small
group mentoring and video

There is also a program
called "Adopt-A-Grade"
designed to encourage
teachers and staff.
In September when
tragedy struck our very own-
community, it affected the
lives of many, especially our
teachers. These teachers
invested many hours into
the lives of those students
and some spent up to seven
hours a day in the classroom
with those students. That is
why Faith Baptist Church

decided to take action.
On Wednesday. Sept. 19.
Faith Baptist Church used
the "Adopt-A-Grade"
program to bring outside
organizations together to
serve our teachers. We
would like to thank the
Taylor County School
District for allowing us the
doorway into the schools
to help encourage our
teachers during this tragic

these were just for the

Character Education Now

Big Bend Hospice
Often people have been
described as having an "old
soul." But rarely do you
find someone who others
describe as having an "old
heart." Holly Cruce, a Big
Bend Hospice aide, is one
of those unique individuals
who, at a young age, has
demonstrated empathy in
caring for those who are
dying. It is because of this
special quality that Holly
was presented with the Big
Bend Hospice Ida Colson
Hospice Aide Excellence
Holly is a Certified Nurse
Assistant on the Jefferson,
Madison, and Taylor (JMT)
Big Bend Hospice Team.
Her role is to provide
personal-care assistance
such as bathing, dressing
and grooming. She helps
to promote a clean, safe
and healthy environment.
Other members of a Big
Bend Hospice team include
Medical Directors, Nurses,
Social Workers, Chaplains,
Music Therapists and
After attending Taylor
Technical Institute in Perry
and completing the PCT
program, Holly received
her Certified Nursing
Assistance (CNA) license in
2004. She went on to work
at Doctor's Memorial Home
Health before joining Big
Bend Hospice in February
2008. She has had the
opportunity to work with
patients and families in both
Jefferson and Taylor County
as part of the JMT Hospice
The technical aspect of
providing care can be taught
and learned in classes but
the ability and the desire
to become part of that
patient's life is innate. One
must be born with that
compassion: one cannot

learn it from a book. "Holly
understands that providing
care to our patients in their
daily activities and helping
them with their hygiene
needs consist of mpre than
scrubbing behind their
ears, washing their hair or
shaving them," says Carol
Katz, Manager of the JMT
Team. "She recognizes that
caring for our patients is
also about listening to them,
visiting with them while
attending to their needs,
and empathizing with them
as they talk about their
worriers, their fears, and
their hopes."
This award is given
yearly to honor both the
first BBH Hospice Aide, Ida
Colson, and to acknowledge
the excellent care and
support given by all of BBH
Hospice Aides. The award
reflects what the mission of
the organization stands for
- dedication, compassion,
and care. Holly has that
innate talent to become an
intimate part of our patient's

lives while maintaining
that requisite professional
distance. "Our patients
anticipate Holly's visits and
know that she is genuinely
caring and concerned about
them," explains Katz.
As Big Bend Hospice
begins preparation for
celebrating 30 years as
the hometown hospice in
2013, employees like Holly
reflect the exceptional
attention and care given to
all BBH patients and family
Big Bend Hospice
has been serving this
community since 1983 with
compassionate end- of- life
care along with grief and
loss counselors available
to provide information and
support to anyone in Leon,
Jefferson, Taylor, Madison,
Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin
or Wakulla county. If
you would like additional
information about services,
please call 850-878-5310 or
