A-10 a new VISION for downtown Who should hire next police chief? The two newest members of the Perry City Council are making their voices heard, with their latest input calling into question how the police chief is hired and casting doubt on the efciency of some city workers. Councilwomen Shirlie Hampton and Ventia Woodfaulk both took their seats last fall and have dived in to share concerns they have received from voters in their respective districts. At a recent city council meeting, Hampton offered her input on how the city hires its chief of police. I am just bringing forward concerns from my district and they do not think it should be left to Bob Brown to do the hiring. I think the council should also have input, Hampton said. During subsequent discussions, Councilman Don Cook expressed his strong opposition to making any changes to how the citys hiring structure is designed. Citizens voted twice for the city charter, which outlines this form of government--where we (as the city council) have an executive manager who works at the pleasure of the council, Cook said. The only way to change that would be a referendum (regarding a change to the city charter) and I think that would be a step backward. Thats the way the city was Free bluegrass festival tickets! Timberland Ford has partnered with the Perry-Taylor County Chamber of Commerce to provide 100 free tickets to the Florida State Bluegrass Festival, which will be at Forest Capital State Park April 4-6. The three-day music festival will feature IIIrd Tyme Out, The Roys, Skip Cherryholmes Quintet, Kenny & Amanda Smith and many more. Tickets will be available at Timberland and the chamber; there is a limit of two tickets per person. Shown above with Chamber President Dawn Taylor (center) are Timberland employees Jennifer LaValle (left) and Lee Roy Driver. Residents were given a sneak peak Tuesday of what downtown could look like if the city moves forward with the plan to build hardtop canopies throughout the main downtown business district corridors. Designers presented preliminary drawings of their recommendations during two public hearings held at City Hall. Perry City Council members were able to give their input during the second hearing, which occurred during their regular meeting. The designs concentrated on a one-block area spanning Main Street to Green. The proposal calls for two-story, balconied awnings wrapping around the blocks north and south anchorsin this case the old Dansby building and the former Perry Ofce Supply. That appears to be the pattern throughout downtownall of the blocks have a two-story building at each end much like bookends, Mark Tarmey with 4M Design Group said. By considering a second oor or a 2-story canopy at some, if not all of the corners, we are able to create a much more dynamic streetscape, he said. This idea proposes that we will develop 4-5 basic canopy options that can be assembled in several patterns appropriate to the revitalization effort they would not all look just alike, but would be Please see page 3 Please see page 3 Delays plague road project Just when construction work will begin on Providence Road, a 3,800foot roadway north of Perry which will connect U.S. 19 and the site of AMTEC Less-Lethal Systems, Inc. (ALS), is up in the air as the county continues working through the permitting process as well as awaiting the results of what is now a contested bid process. The road project is being funded through a $1.4 million Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Economic Development Transportation Fund Grant with no local match. Four rms bid on the project and the bids were opened during the Taylor County Commissions meeting held Tuesday, March 19. According to County Engineer Kenneth Dudley, the county included incentives in the bid package if rms could complete the work in a shorter length of time. The four bids were: Sandco, Inc., $892,400 in 45 days; Anderson Columbia Co., $914,000 in 90 days; Old Castle Southern Group, Inc., $1,362,516.06 in 90 days; and Curts Construction, Inc., $1,346,844.34 in 90 days. Dudley asked that the bid committee be given time to examine the bids and have the commission make an award that evening to help speed up the project. The board agreed and took a Please see page 12 The street scenes shown here feature the block spanning between Main Street and Green Street (facing the courthouse) as well as the proposed hard-top canopies that would link downtown to Rosehead Park. Construction begins on coastal parkConstruction has begun on parking facilities at Keaton Beach Coastal Park to alleviate congestion at the adjacent public boat ramp. The county received three state grants to assist with the construction through the Florida Boating Improvement Program (FBIP). FBIP provided funding assistance in 2010-11 for the design and engineering of the parking facilities at the site and awarded the county a second grant in 2011-12 in the amount of $100,000 for the actual construction, Grants Coordinator Melody Cox said. In late 2012, the county received an additional $175,000 for the project, which was coupled with a $75,000 local match. The county did not receive the additional funding, however, until Jan. 31.

March 29-30, 2013 Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comClass Reunion, take 3 And the reunion continues. In early 2012, when Shelly, Sandy, Geri and Jackie rst contacted me about our 30-year class reunion, I joined the planning committee and oered several ideas for the reunion. From the very start, Shellys main concern was a reunion cruise, and it didnt take much eort on her part to convince the rest of us that we wanted to go on a reunion cruise. Over the next several months, other classmates chimed in. I wont be able to make the cruise, one said. Why arent we having a reunion event in Perry? Ill be home anksgiving, another said. But, my funds are low, so I wont be able to make the cruise. Please have something in Perry, Sharon Moore lamented. I want to come home to a reunion. Aer 30 or so similar messages, the planning committee convened for a special session. Im all about the cruise, Shelly was quick to announce. We can have a local reunion, but Anthony, its going to be your baby. Jackie seconded Shellys motion. en Sandy and Geri, gave the motion a thumbs up. And just like that, the local reunion was my baby. However, since everyone on the planning committee was familiar with my parenting skills, they all volunteered to assist me and in some cases, take over. anks to those wonderful ladies, MY baby was a major success. I felt bad a month later, when I couldnt return the favor and unintentionally let them down. A few days before the cruise, I became ill. is illness prevented me from going on THEIR reunion cruise, which didnt win me any Brownie points. Youre not going where? Jackie asked. en before I could answer, she answered for me. I know you didnt say you werent going on the reunion cruise. No, I didnt say it. But, I was about to before she stopped me. I better not get down to the port and youre not there, my cousin Fram called and said the night before we were to leave for the cruise. You hear me, Antmar? Yes, I heard her. Loud and clear. But, I was much too afraid to tell the truth. Ill be there, I said then asked God for forgiveness under my breath. ankfully, they, like God, forgave me. Now, six months aer the Class of 1982s 30-year reunion, and ve months aer the reunion cruise to the Bahamas, the Class of 82 is at it again. e class has planned a spring break social in Jacksonville the weekend of April 12-14. is time, my class members gave me the simple duty of just showing up. Still, every other day, since the socials planning committee began organizing the event, Ive received a barrage of reminders from various classmates. Are you coming, Anthony? one classmate seems to ask at least three times a week. Elaine, one of the planners, texts, emails, or calls nearly every day to remind me about the event. And then theres Tracy. Antmar, youre going to Jacksonville, Tracy stopped by the house and said the other day. Im going, I responded. You better because everybody wants you to be there, she continued. It wont be the same without you. I turned my back so Tracy couldnt see the smile pasted on my face as I whispered, ey like me. ey really like me. And, because they really like me, here I come Jacksonville. THE PERRY NEWS-HERALD March 23, 1978 Then& NowOQuinn Pharmacy was established in 1911 and is one of the oldest pharmacies in the United States. In 2011, the pharmacy celebrated its 100th year in business and at the same location. The business is located in the 1905 historic Blair Building at the corner of Main Street and Jefferson. The two scenes here (above and right) show the business early days. Surveyors have made 3D maps of buildings throughout Perrys downtown district. The maps are being used by designers working on the citys recently launched free-standing canopy project. OQuinn Phramacys own awnings are being used as inspiration in the plan. Shown here is a 3D depicition of the building.


A-3 Perry News-Herald March 29-30, 2013 administered pre-1982 and there were problems. The city was not well managed at that time at all. It was broke and the governor was this-close to coming in and taking over, he noted. Cook added, The only other way to take it to a referendum would be to get three of ve votes (of the city council) and Ill tell you now youd have to get four votes because I am going to oppose. I would be a yay, Councilwoman Hampton. I am comfortable with the charter (as it is), Councilman Mike Deming said. It was chaos, Mayor Daryll Gunter said to describe the citys state prior to the charter changes. Youd have ve people (i.e. council members) telling the city manager who to hire, he said. Local resident Wayne Dunwoody contributed to the discussions, stating a police chief who is hired by one city manager is not worried about serving the entire community, but one personthe man who hired him. This should not be left on one persons hand. The hiring should be done in conjunction with the entire board. It is a lot of power for one person to hire the police chief. Dunwoody said he had been approached by many in the community concerned over this issue, and I didnt know how to answer them. Now you doit is outlined in the charter how to make any changes by taking it to a vote, Cook said to Dunwoody, who was given a copy of the charter by Councilman Deming. I will say that if a movement is made to change the charter, I would be the rst person to form a committee opposing it, Cook said. The issue has not been brought before the council in its most recent meetings. On Tuesday, during council discussions regarding a proposed ordinance relating to abandoned shopping carts on roadsides throughout the city, Councilwoman Woodfaulk asked if city workers could retrieve the buggies and the city then charge stores collecting the carts. Where would we get the man hours to do that? City Finance Director Penny Staffney asked. Get the ones (city workers) riding around not doing anything. They could do it, Woodfaulk said. Riding around doing nothing? Staffney repeated. Im not saying names, but we do have some out riding around burning up gas all day, Woodfaulk said. No one commented on Woodfaulks assessment, but Councilman Cook asked members to compile a list of showstoppers either you want in or not in there and bring it to (City Manager) Bob (Brown) so he can draft a shopping cart ordinance we would all be okay with. Commission agreed last week to execute a contract with R&E Site Development, Inc., which was the lowest responding bidder in December 2012 and had agreed to honor its bid. County Attorney Kenneth Dudley said the rm had problems acquiring performance and payment bonds for the project. He instead outlined a series of proposals negotiated between staff and R&E he said would protect the county in lieu of the bonds. In light of the FBIP grant time constraints, current economic difculties obtaining bonding and R&Es extended willingness to hold pricing for this project, staff believes this proposal is an acceptable compromise under these circumstances, Dudley said. The board approved the recommendations along with the contract. The county acquired the 44-acre park site in 2008 through a $3 million Florida Communities Trust Program grant. complimentary of the period design. The designs also include intersection bumpouts, extending the sidewalks and narrowing the crosswalks. However, the drive lane would be the same width. The free-standing canopies would extend to the curb and have lighting as well as business signage. They would be selfsupporting and basically abut the buildings. There would be a ash cap installed to keep water from going into the gap, Tarmey said. The plan also includes free-standing canopies covering the sidewalks leading to Rosehead Park. The city would be responsible for the cost of installing and maintaining all of the canopies. Building owners would pay for upgrades that would allow them to use the secondstory balconies. The design proposal can be found on the City of Perrys website (www.cityofperry.net).

A-4 Perry News-Herald March 29-30, 2013 Living Just in time for EasterBy ABBEY L.THARPE 4-H Extension Agent If you have visited the Boys and Girls Club Jerkins Center recently, you discovered more than just students studying after schoolyou also encountered more than 50 fertilized eggs in incubators. All youth at the Boys and Girls Club are studying about embryology with the help of 4-H. Through the 4-H Embryology project, students hatched chicks and witnessed the exciting and wonderful miracle of life. Students also took on responsibilities of caring for the fertilized eggs during the 21-day incubation period and the baby chicks after they hatched. They began the 21-day journey by getting their incubators ready to house the fertilized eggs. Temperature and humidity are two important variables the students have to monitor throughout the process in order to have a successful hatch. Each day students, keep records while carefully monitoring the eggs. At the end of the 21-day cycle, the hope was to have the eggs hatch. Students then cared for the chicks. The 4-H Embryology project teaches students about science and respect for life. Children have a natural sense of curiosity about living things in the world around them. Building on this curiosity, students can develop an understanding of biology through direct experience with living things, their life cycles and their habitats. Many educators believe students learn best through experiences and interactions with the world. They learn by listening, observing, experimenting and applying their knowledge to real-world situations. Through the 4-H Embryology project students develop life skills that help them learn to plan and organize, keep records and teamwork. So if you have visited the Boys and Girls club lately and hear a chirp, you know where it is coming from.
