The Florida Department of Education (DOE) released the states high school grades last week, noting a record number of A schools this year. TCHSs grade gives it the best score in the district, with Taylor County Middle School (TCMS) earning a C, Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) earning a D and Steinhatchee School earning an F when those grades were announced this past summer. Were very excited to see our high school grade jump up to a B, Superintendent Paul Dyal said. He added that he has already extended his congratulations to Michael Thompson, who was principal at TCHS for the rst three-quarters of the 2012-13 school year before taking a district position, as well as Assistant Principal Alicia Beshears and Principal Audie Ash. There was a lot of work by the students and the teachers, especially with the transition to industry certications, Dyal said. The most exciting part is even with the state increasing the standards for grades, the high school was only 28 points from a A. So as long as the state maintains the standards, thats our goal for next year. But there is already word coming down that since more than 75 percent of high school scores were either an A or a B, theyre going to raise the standards again. Thats an injustice to the kids, making them try to hit a moving target. Its like telling your football team that since they won the 3-A state championship, theyre going to have to play in the 4-A next year. According to DOEs preliminary scores before district appeals, 240 high schools in the state earned an A (up from 231 in 2012), 152 earned a B (down from 155), 87 earned a C (down from 89), 15 earned a D (up from 14) and eight earned an F (up from three). TCHS earned 1022 points, which put it near the middle of the B range, which runs from 990 to 1,049 out of a Blessed B the season District heralds the news of improved school gradePlease see page 6 Prayers answered Crash victim improving by leaps and bounds One local family is extra thankful this holiday season, grateful that their prayers have been answered as a loved one continues to recover from a horric onevehicle crash. Melissa Robinson, 29, remains in ICU at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital but has improved a lotleaps and bounds, her mother, Eva Whiddon Akins said Tuesday, Dec. 24. All of the surgeries (last week) went really well. She is off the breathing machine. She is talking and everything. She knows everybody. Shes just done really good.

Bring a helperWhen the nal gift is opened and the last plate cleared from the dinner table, then the second round of Christmas joy beginscleaning up. If you are like many families, the task will include a trip to a local rolloff site and this year, many will nd a few changes at the nine locations throughout the county. The massive dirt hills, which allowed drivers to back up to the large dumpsters and push or pull off heavy trash loads, have been shaved nearly at, leaving a sizeable concrete barrier to overcome. The move was taken as a preventive measure so that accidents at the site may be less likely to occur, County Administrator Jack Brown said. It was part of a recommendation from the countys risk management team in response to a recent accident where a man fell headrst into a dumpster while trying to help another man recover a rake that had fallen into the container. We just want to take steps to prevent anybody from being seriously injured. We have had signage in place warning people not to stand on the aps around the dumpsters, but we did see it continuing to happen. With the new modications, we hope it makes it safer for everyone, Brown said. Individuals will not be able to back up and simply unload anymore. But, it is likely that you had someone help you load something that is heavy, so just remember to bring someone with you to help unload it at the roll-off site. Signage at the roll-offs also asks that children under the age of 12 remain in the vehicle when in the area.All I want for Christmas...
