Afternoon diners at Golden Corral on Hwy. 19 were given a rude surprise Wednesday when a Ford F-150 struck the corner
of the restaurant, causing extensive damage to the building and the vehicle. The truck shattered windows and damaged the brick

no one inside the restaurant was seated at tables next to the windows and no injuries were reported. As PPD officers inspected

Members. of the Roseheads of
Perry, chapter 2207 of the Red Hat
Society, met on Wednesday, July
18, at Marshall Health Facility, for
a "Christmas in July" party. The
ladies arrived at 2 p.m. and began
by decorating a small tree in red
and purple. Peggy Williams baked
and decorated two large cakes for
this party. These beautifully
decorated cakes, red punch and red
poinsettias covered the
refreshment table. Nancy Joyal led
the singing of Christmas carols;
she was accompanied on the piano
by guest Red Hatter Doris
Lepoma. Each resident was given
a gift. Punch and cake was served
and enjoyed by all.
The regular luncheon/meeting of
the Roseheads was held on
Saturday, July 28, at 11:30 a.m.
Nineteen Red Hatters (50 and
over) and one Pink Haiter (under
50) gathered in the banquet room
of Rosehead Junction in downtown
Perry. The tables were beautifully
decorated with purple tablecloths
centered with red candles, and
other red and purple accents. A
small gift bag with a variety of Red
Hat items--an ornament, charm,
magnetic flashing pin and candy--
was at each place setting to be
taken upon leaving. These were
gifts from the July committee of
Cheryl Gregory, Norma McGuire
and Mary Becht.
Upon arrival, each lady put
photos for the Photo Swap on a
large table. Throughout this time
together, the ladies chose photos
for their own collections., There
was much conversation and
laughter generated by these photos.
After ringing the Red Hat bell,
Cheryl Gregory welcomed
everyone and thanked Carol

Fish still bite in
100 degree heat
BY PAT MCGRIFF
One More Cast Guide Service
It was 100 degrees out last
Wednesday when I took Joyce out
fishing and scalloping. We had her'
limit of five trout in under an hour
fishing in 6 7 feet of water. Live
pinfish under Cajun Thunders were
the ticket. We threw back ten
short trout and hardly used 20
I followed Wednesday with a
tough day Friday, with only 8
trout for my charter from
Valdosta, with Curtis Jackson,
Terry Haney and Charles Barnard.
Curtis landed a 22 inch trout
from 7 feet of water while Terry
had a 21 inch fish from less than
2.5 feet while we searched for reds.
Go figure? Again we fished live
pinfish, pigfish and squirrellfish
under Cajun Thunders.

expect a "bite" of less than two-
hours each tide.
No offshore reports this week.
Scalloping was fairly easy, as I
took Joyce out two days and we
had our limits in under two hours
each day. We concentrated on
water 4 to 6 feet deep and were
less than two miles from the jetty.
Scallopers are driving their
boats all the way up from
Steinhatchee to Piney Point, at
the tune of over 50 per day, so we

What do fi
thing and reading have in common
By DON LAKE
Taylor County Public Library
One thing seems obvious. Both
fishing and reading are relaxing
pastimes enjoyed by many..
Why, though, are we even
exploring the relationship between
fishing and reading?
It's really quite simple. We
believe that the Taylor County
Public Library is an important
resource in this community.
Many have worked hard over the
years to build a useful and
meaningful collection of reading
materials. So we were looking to
get the word out in a way that
would appeal to everyone.
The question was: What one
thing do most people in Taylor
County have in common?" The
answer: "They love to fish!"
And of the few who don't love to
fish, surely most love to eat the
mullet, grouper, redfish, bream,
crabs, shrimp and scallops that are
caught by the, rest of the
Of the very few who don't even
like fish, never mind fishing, they
probably at least enjoy watching
fish swim in an aquarium, and
surely they are fully aware that
much of the population in Taylor
County are fishing enthusiasts!
So, there you have it! We have
found something that transcends
all other invisible lines that might
divide us. The love for--or at least
the recognition of--FISHING!
This is the proverbial "river that
runs through" our community!
While fishing is common to
most folks around here, we. are all
Some love deep sea fishing.
Some prefer fishing the creeks and
rivers. Others love the lakes, ponds
and sink holes. Some prefer fishing
from shore while others use a boat.
One may use rod and reel. Another
may fly-fish. Still another may
prefer his or her good ole trusty
cane pole. One might catch and
release. Another may catch and
It's the same with reading. One
may prefer a long epic novel.
Another may be fishing for a short
story. If a novel is an ocean, then'a
magazine is a pond.
One person may like to dive in
and explore a deep, vast sea of
words, while another may enjoy a
stream of light reading. Yet another
may desire a babbling brook or a
winding creek. It's all here at your
From novels to cook books,
To mark the first day back for teachers for the 2007-08 school year, the Taylor County School District held its annual welcome-
back breakfast Monday morning at Taylor County Elementary School. The event, sponsored by Buckeye Community Federal

This brings up something else

common. Both are brain food! So,
feed your head!
When fishing and reading come
together, they can both improve
and enhance our enjoyment of

Fish aren't biting? Why not turn
some pages? Have you ever tried

Especially for busy people, the
time spent waiting for a tug on the
line might afford .a great
opportunity to get in some reading!
Fishing takes time.
Reading takes time. Doing both
at the same time saves time! You
get double the relaxation for the
same time spent!

Reading, does have one
advantage over fishing--fishing is
generally an outdoor sport. So
when the weather is rough, fishing
may be out of the question.
Reading, on the other hand, is an
indoor/outdoor sport. It can be
enjoyed anywhere in almost any
kind of weather. So, when you are:

Editor's Note: Summer vacation is drawing to a close for hundreds of Taylor
County students and this week's "Go" recommendation takes them back in time to
the classroom of 1956-57.
Who do you know from Mrs. Iris Swain's first grade class at Perry
Elementary School? Taken during the 1956-57 school year, the photo
gives us a firsthand look at the standard classrooms of the day--chalk
boards, wooden tables and all! These first graders--who included Phillip
Mantzanas, Janice Pettitt Murphy, Danny Williams, Jim Moody, Jimmy
Poppell, Sara Ann Young Gray, Gerald Lemond, Diane. Mathis Cruce
and Suezette Stephens--went on to become the graduating Class of 1968
at Taylor County High School. Plans are underway now for the class'
40th reunion next year (2008). An organizational meeting will be held
Tuesday, Aug. 21, at the union hall located at the comer of Plantation
Road and Old Dixie Highway. All former classmates are invited to
attend; the meeting begins at 7 p.m. Anyone with contact information
for a 1968 graduate may contact Suezette Stephens at 838-0536.
