"We look forward
to having even better
participation this year."

Election was not loss

for economic freedom

Dear Editor:
Despite all the media's
pronouncements, election
day was not a loss for
the cause of economic
freedom. We are stronger
today because more were
awakened by the election.
We must continue to
hold our representatives
accountable for their
performance although the
president was not held to
the same standard. Keep
in mind he is limited by
congress and we are likely
doomed to little action in his
second term.
The United States insanely
chose to give the president a
second term when the things
he claimed as successes are
not favored by the majority
of the electorate regardless
of party. Let's face it, we

are on an uphill battle to
get back to a productive
mindset rather than relying
on the government for our
This was a setback but
by no means does it show
a loss in our movement's
enthusiasm. Those of us
that truly care voted and
those that did not helped
the public to understand just
how desperate the times.
It must be remembered
that through victory or
loss, election day does not
mark the end of our fight.
The American Revolution
took years to build itself
into the Declaration of
As John Adams wrote,
"The revolution was
effected before the war
commenced. The revolution

was in the minds and hearts
of the people."
We are winning by
building and building by
winning--we are stronger
today than we were before
the election. Along the way
we have all come together,
met others who share our
passion for liberty, and
have established new
We will continue to
challenge the failed political
establishment, and we will

diluting the sovereignty of

were given a 283-page

fallen on deaf ears, even
after one commissioner
has admitted that he
understands and hopes that

will not be held against him.
What? At the last meeting
our county administrator
made no comments. Could
this be because he is the one
who brought NACo to our
county commissioners and
requested they join?
Why are commissioners

not abiding by the U.S.
Constitution, the Bill of
Rights, and the oath they
took to protect Taylor

Dear Editor:
Much to my dismay our
county commissioners did
not choose to get out of
the National Association
of Counties (NACo) nor
the Florida Association
of Counties (FAC) at the
Nov. 5 Board of County
Commissioners meeting.
1 have seen some of the
documentation that had

there is no doubt that Taylor

in these organizations is
allowing the United Nations
Agenda 21 to further

The commissioners were
asked several times if they
had any questions and no
one said a word. Several
knowledgeable citizens
spoke with heartfelt and
fearful concerns...and still
the board said nothing.

danger of associates and

numbers on the Do Not
Call Registry. Charities and
political organizations are
exempt under the Do Not
Call policy and are allowed
to make robocalls. If you
would like to cut down on
the number of robocalls
from political groups, one
solution is to contact your
local supervisor of elections
and ask to have your phone
number removed from the
Voter Registration list.
"Businesses cannot solicit
individuals on the Do Not


Call Registry either over the
phone or through robocalls
unless the consumer has
granted them permission to
do so in writing. Robocalls
that violate these rules are
generally scams and are
often associated with offers
such as debt or mortgage

Jarvis also warned
residents to "Be wary of
robocalls that instruct you
to press '1' to reach a live

operator or to press another
number to be taken off the
list. This is just a ploy
to determine if the phone
number is active. Punching
any number will result in

Famed Southern novelist, Pat Conroy. says of Owens'
latest. "Her voice is as pure as a stream and as real as a
plowed furrow. The South has rarely produced a writer this
authentic and original. She is the real thing, at last."
The Atlanta Journal Constitution chimed in with.
"Owens' detailed and well-researched portrait of west
Florida bloodlines benefits from her obvious affection for
its cast of colorful characters, and her descriptions of small-
town life are a joy to read."

Yulee's Henry breaks 59-year-old national rushing record

'Dogs' season ends after 'valiant effort'

Taylor County put forth a
valiant effort at ruining Yulee
High School star running
back Derrick Henry's
record-breaking rushing
performance Friday night
in Yulee, but ultimately the
Bulldogs came up on the
short end of a 41-26 playoff
loss to the Hornets.
The Bulldogs held Henry
and Yulee scoreless in the
first quarter -- as both teams
played to a 0-0 tie -- but
Henry finally broke loose
on a long touchdown run
44 seconds into the second
Despite Henry's record-
breaking performance,
Taylor County had chances
to pull off the upset forcing
three turnovers and twice
driving down inside the
Hornets' 5-yard line, but
managed to convert only one
of the turnovers into points.
Taylor County held Yulee
scoreless on 2 of the Hornets'
5 first-half drives, but gave
up a touchdown with less
than 25 seconds to play in the
first half to fall behind 21-13.
The Bulldogs forced
Henry to fumble on the
opening drive of the second
half at midfield, but managed
only 5 yards before having to
After a long 90-yard drive
by Yulee put the Hornets up
28-13 in the 3rd quarter, the
Bulldogs responded with
their own 83-yard scoring
drive capped with a 1-yard
TD run by Jake Smyrnios to
pull within 28-20.

52-yard TD run that was his
longest of the night.
Henry surpassed the nearly
60-year-old record of 11.232
yards long thought to be
unbreakable -- set by Ken
Hall of Sugar Land (Texas)
High School from 1950-
53, as he literally single-
handedly carried Yulee to a
first-round Class 4A playoff
win over the Bulldogs.
Henry finished the game
with an incredible 58 carries
for 481 rushing yards and
6 touchdowns giving the

Henry broke loose on a 39-
yard TD run that basically
sealed the win with 5:46 to
play, but Taylor County once
again rallied, as Wentworth

1 int.) drove the Bulldogs
down to the 6-yard line

in the endzone with 3:26 to
Henry, the five-star
running back committed
to play for Alabama, made
history on his second carry
of the second quarter by
breaking the 59-year-old

top-rated running back a new
national record 11,612 career
rushing yards. The 58 carries
was also a new state record
for one game.
The Hornets' star player
carried the ball on 58 of
Yulee's 72 total offensive
plays, as Yulee fullback
Jason Ray finished with 10
carries for 25 yards. Yulee
QB Dalton Bradley finished
0 for 2 passing with 2
interceptions and was sacked
on both of his carries for
minus 11 yards before being
knocked out of the game by
the Bulldog defense.
Henry has now rushed
for 3,752 yards and 50
touchdowns during the 2012
season, averaging 341 yards
and nearly 5 TDs per game.

Bulldog quarterback Daniel Wentworth (16)
looks to pitch the ball to Jake Smyrnios (7)
during state playoff action Friday night at Yulee.

Listed at 6-3 and 238
pounds, Henry has never
been held under 200 yards
rushing in 11 games this
season and has rushed for
more than 100 yards in all
45 high school games he has
ever played.
Despite the fact Taylor
County (and every other
opponent) designed a
customized defense focused
on containing him, the
powerful, speedy tailback
showed the strength and
endurance that helped hiln
set the new Florida single-
game rushing record (502
yards) earlier this season
against Jacksonville-Andrew
Henry now has 148 career
rushing TDs and is sixth on
the nation's all-time TD list.
with a chance to break that
record Friday night when
Yulee hosts District 1-4A
champion East Gadsden.
"1 lied. It wasn't a Hunmee
we were tackling, it was a
school bus," Bulldogs' Head
Coach Ryan Smith said after
the game.
"In all seriousness, he
is the best player I've ever
witnessed ... even better
than Marcus Lattimore
(South Carolina), and I was
extremely proud of the fight
and perseverance our guys
showed in trying to get him
"I am very proud' of this
team and the effort they
gave. They left it all on
the field, and I couldn't
ask for anything more.
Unfortunately, we weren't
able to win the game, but that
is not a reflection of the year
we had. All year this team
continued to improve and
we were able to accomplish
a fourth straight winning
season and make the playoffs
for a record fourth straight
time despite an extremely
difficult schedule," Smith
The Bulldogs finished 7-5
with all five losses coming
against playoff teams,
including Wakulla (10-0),
Madison (9-1), Fort White
(7-4), East Gadsden (7-2)
and Yulee (8-3).
"I am extremely proud of
this team for never quitting
and continuing to improve
even when they had every
excuse not to. These men
did the community of Taylor
County proud," Smith
The Bulldogs showed they
were going for the upset
from the opening drive, as
Smith opted to go for a first
down instead of punting on
4th and 2 at midficld.
Bulldog senior tailback
Jake Smyrnios (15 carries,
91 yards, 2 TDs) was slopped
short of the first down marker
on the play, allowing Yulee
to take over at midfield.
Seven carries by Henry
moved the Hornets inside
the Bulldog 15-yard line, but
Darick Ward, Tyler Evans,
Calub Murphy and Javolis
McNeal stepped up big to
stop Henry on back-to-back

plays, leading to a 10-yard
sack by Luke Kallschmidt on
3rd and 8.
Yulee went for the
touchdown on 4th and 18

was stopped at the 5-yard
line on a 3rd down run and
Smyrnios was met in the
backfield on a 4th and 4 play
to end the scoring threat.

times for 42 yards, Henry

The Bulldog defense
turned in multiple big
hits on Henry during the
game, including several
by noseguard Tyler Evans,
linebacker Calub Murphy
and defensive lineman
Darick Ward that could be
heard in the stands.
However, Henry just kept
coming, demonstrated by
an amazing 65-yard scoring
drive with under a minute to
play in the 2nd quarter.

Bulldog Defensive
Coordinator Beau Johnson
said he was extremely
pleased with his defense's
"I watched each play 5
times in slow motion. We
had effort on every play.
Of course I found some
techniques that needed work,
but that is on every film. It
is hard to believe, but we
executed our game plan
really well," the coach said.
Johnson said that at one
point Taylor County had 6
linemen. 4 linebackers and 1
defensive back.
"We totally ignored one
receiver. 1 would not change
one thing scheme wise.
Henry is just that good. He
is the best I have ever seen
-- 58 carries between the
tackles -- 1 'm still shaking
my head. My Bulldogs never
quit in this game and did not
quit all year," Johnson said.

Blackwood presented outstanding

community member award for 2012

Perry resident Lloyd
Blackwood was presented
the 2012 Paula Bailey
Outstanding Community
Member Award by the
Lighthouse of the Big Bend,
an agency that provides
free services for people
with vision loss and legal
blindness in the 11 counties
of North Central Florida,
including Taylor.
Lighthouse services for
adults include independent
living skills training,
orientation and mobility
skills training, vocational
skills training and assistive
technology training.
Programs are also available
for visually impaired or
blind children ages 0-5 and
Each fall, the Lighthouse
requests submissions from
the general public for the
Paula Bailey Outstanding
Community Member
Award, which is given at the
agency's annual Dining in
the Dark fundraising event.
The award recognizes
individuals for their

contributions to promoting a
positive image and example
for the community while
being visually impaired.
Blackwood lost his sight
due to retinitis pigmentosa
and glaucoma more than 10
years ago, "but has not lost

his vision of being active in
life by striving to advance
his skills. He comes from a
background in real estate and
mortgage processing where
he was very successful,"
Lighthouse Vocational
Services Director Wayne S.

Warner said.
"Blackwood's life
experiences, strong family
ties and values have made
him into an individual who
essentially does not meet a
He is an active member

Representative Alan William (left) presents the Paula Bailey "Inspirational
Award" to winner, Lloyd Blackwood Jr. (right)

of the Perry community and
works to establish outlets
where he can advocate for
persons with disabilities.
"He never lets time go to
waste and pushes himself
to make the best of any
situation; he utilizes all
available resources and
actively seeks opportunities
to help others who may
benefit from his experience,"
Warner said.
Blackwood volunteers
with several public
entities including
service organizations
(specifically the Guardian
ad Litem program) and has
participated in meeting with
the Governors Commission
for Employment of Persons
with Disabilities in an effort
to develop opportunities to
better himself and others.
"Mr. Blackwood does
not shy away from any
opportunity to advocate for
employment for persons
with vision impairments and
volunteers to be a source
of information for others
who are working through

adjustment to vision loss.
He has made the point on
many occasions that if you
think you have problems,
just look a little closer and
you will find that your
problems quickly pale in
comparison to others.
"Blackwood's can-
do attitude, approach
to life and his positive
influence on others that he
becomes associated with is
impressive. He represents
a truly self-motivated
individual placing no blame
on others for life situations
and has the opinion that
each person is in control of
their own destiny.
"He is a strong advocate
of self-reliance and
demonstrates what we all
should strive to achieve.
Because of the efforts of Mr.
Blackwood and the positive
nature of his general
demeanor, as well as setting
the bar high for us all, he
is well deserving of the
Paula Bailey Inspirational
Community Member
Award," Warner said.
