Officers Acted

Properly In

Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that on Friday, Jan-
uary 28, a Madison County Grand Jury Investigation
was conducted into the shooting death of Rudy G.
Taylor by a Madison County Deputy Sheriff and a
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper that occurred on
Saturday morning January the 8th, 2011, at approxi-
mately 9:40 AM.
A summary of the Grand Jury findings and re-
port are as follows:
1. On January 8 at approximately 9:40 a.m., the
two Officers approached a tent that had been illegal-
ly erected by W/M, Rudy G. Taylor in a drainage
ditch at the entry ramp of State Road 53 South and
Interstate 10 West Bound.
2. Rudy Taylor was a long time transient with a
dislike for law enforcement officers.
3. The night before the Officers encountered Mr.
Taylor at his tent, he had shown an illegal short-bar-
reled, pump action, Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun to
another transient that.he had invited to his tent. He
advised that he would use the shotgun on anyone
that bothered him.
4. A black 'hask, shotgun shells, (12 gauge
slugs.) and hand restraints were found in Mr. Tay-
lor's tent.
5. When the Officers approached the tent, the
Deputy identified himself as a Deputy with the
Madison County Sheriff's Office and ordered Mr.
Taylor out of the tent.
6. Mr. Taylor opened the flap of the tent and
pointed his shotgun directly at the Deputy's head.
7. The Deputy was approximately 5-6 feet from
the shotgun barrel.
8. Upon seeing Mr. Taylor point the shotgun at
the deputy's head, both officers drew their weapons
and started firing.
9. Seventeen bullets were fired by the officers.
10. Rudy Taylor was struck nine times by the
bullets fired.
11. Rudy Taylor died within minutes of being

Nation Building

Part of this is the re-
sult of the people be-
ing accustomed to a
strong central govern-
ment. But in
Afghanistan where
governing is far more
tribal, positive results
for creating a central
democracy have been
agonizingly slow. It
would appear that for
every step forward,
there are at least one
and sometimes two steps
Our strategy in
Afghanistan is counter
insurgency, developed in
2008 by the outgoing
Bush Administration
and implemented by the
Obama team. We're ask-
ing our troops, primari-
ly the foot soldiers of
our Army and Marines,
to take territory from
Taliban insurgents and
then hold it while we
fabricate a functioning
government - adminis-
tration, security,
schools, health services,
With this strategy,

the iron fist of our mili-
tary must be housed in a
velvet glove. We must
separate the enemy from
the people and stride
carefully It subjects our
troops to greater risk
and more casualties.
How successful and at
what cost are the criti-
cal, unanswered ques-
tions. History tells us
that when Afghanistan
is forgotten and left to its
own tribal inclinations,
the results are bad and
sometimes catastrophic
- the 9/11 attacks were
planned and executed
from al Qaeda camps in
the Afghan desert.
Today, Muslim
North Africa is in
flames as the people of
Tunisia and Egypt rise
up against totalitarian
governments. As the
Russian Jewish
refugee Nathan Sha-
ransky wrote, 'when
you hold a gun to the
people's head, sooner
or later your arm will
tire.' What kind of rule
will replace the long-
standing strong men?
Will a Muslim funda-
mentalist regime such
as Iran fill the vacu-
um? Do we intervene
to protect shipping
through the Suez
Canal? What kind of
nation building will
NATO be called upon to
assist the democratic
aspirations of these
people? How well posi-
tioned is our State De-
partment to handle
these challenges?
Nation building is
a tough job but an im-
portant responsibility.
If we intervene and
change a regime, we
have an obligation to
restore order and im-
prove the government.
The United States is
the premier democracy
among the world's na-
tions, People who are
oppressed look to us
for leadership and de-
mocratic reforms.
We live in a danger-
ous and sometimes ex-
citing world' in the
second decade of the
21st Century. The pos-
sibilities are endless.


Happy .Birthday

MacArthur, the transi-
tion to a new democratic
and liberal society was
even more astounding.
The democratic roots of
both of these nations
and firm allies are the
result of American na-
tion building following
the ashes of world war.
We learned well the
lessons from our failure
after World War I.
America's efforts in
nation building follow-
ing the Korean War have
proven spectacular. To-
day, South Korea is an
economic bulwark in
Northeast Asia. In
South Vietnam, we bit

off far more than we
could chew. The revolv-
ing governments follow-
ing the Diem
assassination in 1963
never had the support of
the people; we were un-
able to build any
strength of -government
which could repel their
northern brethren.
Since 2000, our two
wars in the Middle East
have seen different re-
sults with respect to
building democratic na-
tions which represent
the aspirations of the
people. In Iraq since
2007, the results have
been good if tenuous.

McClamma has continu-
ally exemplified determi-
nation and courage
while serving and pro-
tecting her community
Last year, while working
in the Jefferson County
Jail, McClamma fought

for her life (and that of
her unborn baby) when a
prisoner she was escort-
ing attacked her in an ef-
fort to break out of jail.
She was willing to do
whatever was necessary
to prevent the prisoner
from escaping, without

regard to her own well-
being. McClamma
fought the inmate
through the hallway and
an office, where he at-
tacked her with scissors
and a taser gun. She was
able to maintain the up-

RE: 2011 FSA Correctional Officer of the Year Nomination

Deai-Mr. Casey:
The Jefferson County Sheriffs Office wishes to nominate Corporal
Marie McClamma as the Correctional Officer of the Year. We feel that she deserves
recognition for her outstanding performance, not just in the past year but since she has
been employed with this office for the past 4 V2 years. Her record here has been notable
from her first day on the job. Her willingness and professionalism is evident in her
daily duties.
Corporal McClamma was instrumental in the recapture of an escaped murder
suspect in November 2006. Had it not been for her sense of duty and attention to detail
he would most certainly made good on his escape. Another of the officers on duty in
the jail that night received the information that the suspect was attempting to escape but,
due to unusual details contained in the information, decided that it was a hoax.
McClamma, on the other hand, decided to check out the situation regardless of what
was reported to her. She discovered that the suspect has already made it outside the
walls of the jail facility but she was right behind him. She alerted the deputies and the
other corrections personnel on duty and the recapture effort was quickly organized and
put into action. Her actions gave the escapee no time to get very far from the jail
before deputies and other law enforcement agencies were deployed to hunt hini down.
He was quickly located and captured approximately a mile from the jail. Had she not
taken it upon herself to make an extra effort to make sure all was well (or not) that
prisoner's escape would have not been detected until the next routine roster count was
This is only one example of her dedication to her profession. She routinely does
a little more than required and always shows inventiveness and initiative in carrying out
her responsibilities of care, custody and control on the inmates.

Another example of her extraordinary dedication is a more recent event, a
situation in which she single handedly prevented another escape roim our jail on March
22, 2l il 0.hc was pregnant and expecting her third child. She was days away from
nmi:iTnit leave and assigned to the booking'area/control room of the jail facility where
she would have minimal contact with prisoners. In this instance, she found herself
alone at one point during her tour of duty and was confronted by an inmate who was
bent on escape. That prisoner had been placed in an isolation cell earlier in the day.
The prisoner called her to his cell from the booking area/control room and she found
herself in a position in which she had to open the door to his cell. l'vcen though this
prisoner had not displayed any signs of violence or other flags to indicate that he was a
risk, when she had to open his cell door, she was on her guard. When she opened the
door, the prisoner immediately attacked her. A sIruggle ensued. As she fought with the
male prisoner, who was ph% M .,ilI\ stronger than she was, she attempted to contact the
other staff for assistance. The prisoner managed to tct the radio. depri\ mig her of
niiiisichij means to summon help. McClamma managed to herself from the
prisoner and entered the control room in an attempt to call for help and to isolate the
prisrnet in the secure area. The prisoner managed to force his way into the control
r,,iin tiokmin area bhI'oc she could summon anyone for help and the fight continued.
In spite of the fact that the prisoner obtained a taser gun .und used it on her several times
in her stomach and also crabbed a pair of scissors in an attempt to stab her re.uhlinig in
minor lacerations on her shoulder and neck area, McCl.iniiMua through raw determination
to survive and the mindset not to allow this prisoner to escape, she was able to call for
hlcp .and contain the prisoner until help arrived,
Vidc,, and audio evidence conlirnied that Corporal .M1cl,,Inin.i was tL'1i.ng0.ii1
and pro.iiesii.l in her actions during the 'onlront;iit'n and as a result, she carried the
day, prevented an escape and survived.
Corporal McClamma deserves to be rc i.niicd for her courage and sense of
duty. \k hlie she is certainly not only the only correctional ,,litker in the state that has
such experiences as related here, she is, in our opinion, rare in that she is so consistent
in her faithfulness to the profl-,%ion and her dedich.uion to duty as well as the general
safety of the public.
As a result of the above events, Marie McClamma was presented an ".\ ,iid of
Courage" and received a promotion to the rank of< 'orporal in November 2010 by
Shrill 'lD.t ni Hobbs,
The last and the most important fact of this nomination: Baby Faith was born
lic.ilblh and happy.

At the time of the at-
tack, McClamma was
seven months pregnant.
Today, she is the proud
mother of a healthy baby
girl and is grateful for
the appreciation and out-
pouring of support from
the community While
she recognizes the risks
law enforcement and cor-
rections officers take
every day, she is deter-
mined to do her best no
matter what the day
brings. Being a Correc-
tions Deputy is a career
that she is passionate
about-and she and her
family are grateful for a
positive outcome.
She said it was a
frightening experience
when the inmate at-
tacked her. "I was worry-
ing about my baby and
worrying about me. But I
didn't want him to leave
the premises and maybe
hurt someone else. It's
my job to protect the citi-
zens, she said."
Following the attack,
McClamma was placed
on bed rest for a while.
"It gave me time to
think. Faith in God got
me through the experi-
ence," she said. "You can
go ypur entire career and
never experience any-
thing like this. It wasn't

she was surprised at the

told about only two

McClamma added, "I
was very honored to re-

ing and humbling
experience. Many correc-

ever get recognized. I'm'
honored to receive it."
McClamma doesn't
consider what she did
heroic. She said, "I don't
see myself as a hero. I
was simply put it an ex-
traordinary situation
and I had to make a deci-
sion. That's all I did."

for the coveted title of Miss Madison County, along
with a chance to win scholarship money As a way to
get more young ladies involved within our commu-
nity, a new category will be added this year will be
added. The title of Ms. Madison is for any lady who
is married, single, divorced or with children and is
at least 20 years old.
With the incredible success of last year's Mr.
and Miss Heart of Madison program, we are pleased
to announce once again that anyone who wishes to
participate can do so without having to enter the ac-
tual pageant. This program raised a grand total that
surpassed $1,000 for our Miss Madison scholarship
fund, which in return aided last year's Miss Madi-
son, Ashley Hollingsworth. Since this program
holds such prestige, everyone who participates and
completes the requirements will walk away with a
beautiful crown, sash, or cape.
The pageant is set for Saturday, April 2, at Van
H. Priest Auditorium. Applications may be picked
up at Becky's Dance Steps Studio. Deadline to enter
is March 4, so be sure to submit applications early as
spaces are limited. For more information feel free to
contact Toni Blanton Norris at (850) 673-1162 or

In addition to the findings of the Grand Jury,
Sheriff Ben Stewart advised that the investigation
by the State Attorney's Office and the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement also cleared the two
Officers. Finally, Sheriff Stewart also stated that the
Deputy involved in the shooting followed Madison
County Sheriff's Office Policy and that He stands be-
hind the actions of his Deputy Four Officers have
been shot and killed in the State of Florida since the
first of the year. "I thank God that we did not have
two more killed during this incident," Stewart said.

Some have contended that President Madison
never made the statement because it cannot be
found in any of his writings, while others believe
that it could have been transcribed from one of
Madison's speeches.
Madison, known as "the Father of the Constitu-
tion," believed in the Christian system of morality
He wrote that people who lived outside a Christian
set of standards "live in darkness" because the oth-
er systems were "false religions."
Whether one is Jewish, Christian, Muslim (the
Koran has a list of commandments almost exactly
the same as the Ten Commandments) or any other
religion, the rules provide a great standard of living
that everyone should strive toward.

Junior Auxiliary of Madison County Presents V aIllLent es
Compelling Speaker, Who Encourages Madison
and surrounding counties to Make Smart Choices ialloon aeal

Poor choices can
have drastic conse-
quences, but if you
learn from your mis-
takes, the end result can
be positive - and Sarah
Panzau is Living Proof.
As a two-time member
of the National Junior
College Athletic Associ-
ation women's volley-
ball All-America team,
Panzau knew what it
was like to be on top of
her game - and on top of
ae world. But not long
ofter, she nearly lost it
Somewhere between
life as a competitively
driven high-school ath-
lete and the early years
of college, she began
heading down a destruc-
tive path. She found
herself hanging. out
with the wrong crowd
and getting more out of
drugs and dangerous
levels of alcohol than
hitting the books and
spiking a ball.
On Thursday, Feb.
10, at 7p.m. at NFCC Van
H. Priest Auditorium,
the Junior Auxiliary of
Madison will present
Panzau, who will re-
count for students the
pattern of poor choices
that finally caught up
with her.
In the early morn-
ing hours of Aug. 23,
2003, Panzau's car - and
her life - spun out of
control. With a blood-al-

cohol level nearly four
times the legal limit, the
21-year-old decided to
drive home drunk,
missed a highway exit
and rolled her car four
times. Without a seat
belt,' she was ejected
through the rear win-
dow of her car, her left
arm was torn from her
anrvr andrl ho xra

The next thing Pan-
zau remembers, she was
in the hospital being
told that she had lost her
arm. She remained hos-
pitalized for several
months and endured
more than 30 surgeries.
Panzau recognizes it
was a series of poor
choices that led up to
that tragic night and
hopes others will learn
from her mistakes. She
started speaking to stu-
dents because, until the
crash, she was in their
shoes: invincible and

with the world ahead of
"I am the victim of
my own poor decisions
to hang out with the
wrong crowd, get in-
volved with drugs and to
drive drunk," Panzau
explains. "Today, I stand
before students to im-
press upon them the im-
portance of making the
right choices - to not
drink before they are 21,
never drive drunk, re-
spect parents, rise above
disabilities and to learn
the meaning of 'real'
During her presenta-
tion, Panzau encourages
students to look out for
each other and reminds
them to seek help, if
needed. She also touches
on the difficulties she
has encountered as a re-
sult of her disabling in-
jury, including a lack of
social acceptance. She re-
lates that before the
crash, she was the pretty,
popular girl with whom
everyone wanted to be
friends. Now that she is
technically considered
disabled, people treat her
differently. Panzau en-
courages students not to
let physical disabilities
bias their thinking and to
show tolerance and ac-
ceptance of others.

Question: ket
What do my prescription medicines have to do with my teeth? a 11
Answer:. ni
Patients are surprised on a, regular basis when I tell them how a 1 s o
their necessary prescription medicines affect their teeth. Let me
reiterate when I say necessary prescription medicine. What I am
telling patients is there are side effects to numerous medicines some
of which will show up in the mouth. You need to see your dentist for
help with the side effects.
One of the most obvious side effects is sudden rampant or
aggressive tooth decay. I have seen this with 3 patients in the last
three weeks which is my inspiration for this article. These patients
have had routine dental care for years and all of a sudden with new
-medications come new dental decay problems.
Numerous medications have the effect of drying up your saliva.
You can often tell someone with dry mouth because they say they are
thirsty all the time and they carry around a bottle of water. They
have been checked.for diabetes because of the excessive thirst but.
they are fine. What has happened is they have developed a dry
mouth condition called Xerostomia.
Tw\o of my patients started using cough drops to make their
mouth feel better. Interestingly cough drops do have,antibiotic
ingredients to help sore throats. Things like menthol, speannint, &
cetylpyridium chloride will all help fight the bacteria when you have
a sore throat, which is wonderful. The problem is most all sore throat
lozenges are loaded with sugar. Go ahead and use sugar laden cough
drops for three months. They will cause just as many cavities as
Let me describe it this way. You know that fire extinguishers
have some form of baking soda toput out fires. Let me ask a
question. Would you buy a Fire Extinguisher from the BP Oil
Company? (I know you won't buy anything from BP) Does it make
sense to have a fire extinguisher which is half baking soda and half
GASOLINE? Well that is what you are doing when you get cough
drops with sugar (high fructose corn syrup) and a disinfectant. You
are killing the bacteria and fueling them at the same time. It also
fuels tooth decay.
So if you like cough drops you need to find them that are sugar
free. Don't let them put gasoline in your fire extinguisher!

Madison County Carrier * 9A


By Fran Hunt
Special to Greene Publishing, Inc.
For the past few years, county resi-
dent Matt Dobson has been a quarter-
back powerhouse on the football field.
He began playing football at a young
age and began playing at the age of five
years both at the Jefferson County
Recreation park and at the YMCA in
Thomasville, where he played Pee Wee
flag football until the age of seven years.
At the age of eight years, he began play-
ing tackle football at the YMCA.
During those early years, his dad
(Terry Dobson), who coached the local
Pee Wee league, served as a great inspi-
ration for him. His dad also helped him
at home as well, getting him out in the
yard and tossing the football around.
They also enjoyed watching a lot of foot-
ball on television.
His dad does not help coach any-
more, but does enjoy going to as many
practices as possible. In addition they
spend many hours together watching
films of previous games as well as films
of upcoming opponents.
Dobson said that he discovered that
he had a natural God-given knack for
playing the position of quarterback, at
about eight years of age. '
In 2005, he was old enough to play
football at school and he began playing
on the junior varsity team at Aucilla
Christian Academy His performance on
the field, during practices, in the weight
room and in the classroom, were quite
When he was in the seventh grade,
he was,promoted to the varsity team,
where he began to serve as an inspira-
tion for all youth who wished to excel
It is most unusual for a freshman to
be on a varsity team in any sport and
even more so to playing in a position as
critical as team quarterback. He was
continually named to the list of Big
Bend Leaders in football, where he held
the number one position of quarterback
for most of the season. Also, throughout
his high school football career, he was
continually named on the List of Big
Bend Leaders on the gridiron.
At the end of his first year on the
varsity team for the Warriors, he had a
total of 146 pass completions out of 263
attempts for 16 touchdowns and 1,78C
He played at Aucilla again in his
eighth grade year and then transferred
to North Florida Christian (NFC), where
he has been playing for the Eagles for the
past three years.
NFC Head Football Coach Robert
Craft said of Dobson, "Matt is in his
third season here at NFC. The first twc
years he started at freesafety and was
the back-up quarterback. This year, as a
junior, he was the starting quarterback.'
NFC finished the past season with
six wins and four losses. At the end of
the season, Dobson had 130 completions
on 223 pass attempts for 1,888 yards and
17 touchdowns. He also had 94 carries
for 587 yards and five touchdowns.
"Matt is a leader for our football
team both on and off the field," said
Craft. "He leads by example in his deter
mination in the weight room and his
commitment to film study".
Through his dedication and deter
minatiop, *Dobson religiously trains

Matt Dobson
the football field apd stay in the best pos-
sible shape.
NFC is involved in a 7-on-7 passing
league all summer and they have
weightlifting four days per week as well
as conditioning throughout the year and
Dobson is always in attendance during
these sessions.
Dobson was chosen as the Tallahas-
see Quarterbacks Club Offensive Player
of the Week two weeks this past season
and he received the Offensive Player of
the Year award in December.
So far this year, Dobson has been
contacted by FSU, Florida, Auburn,
Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Uni-
versity of South Florida, Texas A & M,
t Notre Dame and Nebraska among oth-
ers for college scholarships.
"Matt is also a leader in our school,"
added Craft.
'As a junior, his GPA (grade point
average) is 4.2, due to his being in honors
I classes, which carries a higher weight
than regular classes do."
He plans to major in Education; he
I wants to t6ach and be a high school foot-
ball coach.
Dobson said he would certainly love
to play in the NFL one day but he real-
I izes it is very difficult to do as only a
small percentage of college players
t make it into the NFL.
He added that if it happened, that
would be great but for now he just wants
to concentrate on leading his team to a
state championship next year and de-
ciding which college is the best fit for
3 him.
, Dobson was asked what he would
tell a youngster who aspired to be like
3 him athletically "Get your priorities in,
I order. God should be first because foot-
ball is not eternal. Your family should
come second followed by academics and
then football. No matter what you are do-
t ing, always do the best you can and give
it 110 percent. Be a leader in the class-
) room and on the field. For on-the-field
s success, you'll need to have fun and love
what you are doing," said Dobson. "Nev-
' er take one play or one repetition off,
i whether you are at practice; in a game or
f in the weight room.",
s In his spare time, Dobson enjoys
I hunting, fishing and attending church
s functions. He says he tries to keep every-
thing well balanced by devoting the right
l amount of time to practicing, studying
' and spending time doing extracurricu-
- lar activities.
s - oHe is 'the son of Jefferson County
residents Terry and Rhonda Dobson and
- the grandson of Ron and Martha
. Smoak, of Madison.
