A-10NFMC to build $2.4 million facility in downtown Perry? Internet cafes banned; 3 close here Taylor County United Way recently concluded its local campaign by inviting area students to help place the nal pieces on its Tree Meter at the corner of the courthouse. The local campaign exceeded its annual fund-raising goal with a grand total of $285,323. The students efforts were awesome this year, Campaign Associate Glenda Hamby said. You might say that their campaign was Change for Change, because most of what they raised was in pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Perry Primary School (PPS) held a penny drive raising $623.81. Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) focused on nickels and dimes a day and raised $229.86. Taylor County Middle School (TCMS) had class competitions to see who could raise the most. The student council sponsored the event and the school raised $311.10. The Taylor County High School Student Council and class ofcers raised $500 in one day. The total raised by the campaigns was $1664.77.

Rick Scott signed a bill into law banning so-called internet cafes, closing as many as 1,000 such locations across the state. The bill went in effect immediately upon Scotts signature, and by Thursday, all three locations here were closed. The state left the task of ensuring internet cafes were closed to local law enforcement, but Perry City Manager Bob Brown said Thursday that the local outlets closed voluntarily. Two had signs on their doors stating they were now closed, while the third appeared unoccupied. Brown said the city had received a request to shut off utility services to that location. Representatives from the local operations could not be reached for comment. The Florida House overwhelmingly passed CS/ HB 155 Friday, March 22, in a 108-7 vote. The bill, among other provisions, more clearly denes what constitutes slot machines and in effect puts internet cafes out of business across the state. On Thursday, April 4, the Florida Senate substituted CS/HB 155 for its own version (CS/SB 1030) and passed it as well in a 36-4 vote. The Perry City Council has agreed to commit up to $500,000 in support of a project spearheaded by North Florida Medical Centers, Inc., (NFMC) that could result in the construction of a $2.4 million medical complex in downtown Perry. The councils action was met by applause during its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night, April 9. Welcome to downtown, Mayor Daryll Gunter told assembled NFMC representatives. NFMC is pulling together a grant proposal to secure funding for the project from state and federal sources. We have heard about the citys revitalization plans for downtown and wed like Saturday mail run will stay, for now The United States Postal Services (USPS) plan to end Saturday mail delivery in August has been ofcially delayed after the U.S. Congress stepped in the way. In February, USPS ofcials announced that Saturday delivery to street addresses would be end on Aug. 5, a move they said would generate cost savings of approximately $2 billion annually once the plan was fully implemented. In response, Congress added language into its continuing resolution, which funds the federal government through the end of September, mandating that the postal service maintain a six-day delivery schedule. The resolution passed March 6. On Wednesday, the Postal Services Board of Governors released a statement saying they were delaying the plan to end Saturday delivery, but called for Congress to give them more exibility in developing delivery schedules. Although disappointed with this Congressional action, the board will follow the law and has directed the Postal Service to delay implementation of its new delivery schedule until legislation is passed that provides the Postal Service with the authority Please see page 3 Please see page 12 Online: www.perrynewspapers.comE-editions now availablePlease see page 12 Please see page 3


HOSPITAL DRIVE OVER THE TOPThe fundraising campaign to secure co-signers for $200,000 in notes to benet Doctors Memorial Hospial (DMH) went over the top, exceeding its goal by $8000.

I am honored but feel that I must accept it on behalf of all good teachers in our county who work long, hard hours, said Trofemuk. She had 23 years of teaching experience in Taylor, specializing in fourth grade language arts. She graduated from Florida State University with a degree in elementary education when she was 16. The state would not grant a teaching certicate to anyone that young but, because of the great need for teachers in Taylor, she was allowed to teach grades three and four in Salem for a year without a certicate. She later taught grades one, two and six at Foley before transferring to Gladys Morse Elementary in 1959.TRESPASSERS WARNED OFF SCHOOL GROUNDSTwo suspects, unnamed in a police report, were warned to never return to the grounds of Taylor County High School.

April 12-13, 2013 Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comWeekend fund-raisers help kidney patient ey cooked for us and they cleaned up behind us. When we needed comforting, they smiled and made everything okay. ey protected and watched over us. And, more than anyone else in the world, our mothers loved us. No one will argue with the notion that theres nothing like a mothers love. at is, unless youre Beverly Richardson. e Perry native, who now lives in Atlanta, has found something comparable to a mothers love: her sons love. Since being diagnosed with kidney failure in 2011, Richardson says her sons have shown her that children can love their mother just as much as their mother loves them. It was Richardsons teenage son, Tyree, who convinced her to go to the hospitals emergency room when she rst became ill in 2011. I had been going to my primary physician for about a month, Richardson recalls. I was being treated for pneumonia. ey were giving me breathing treatments, but I wasnt getting any better. One day, I was so sick that I couldnt get out of bed or do anything. ats when my son, Tyree, insisted that I go to the emergency room. When Richardson arrived at the emergency room, ER doctors immediately diagnosed her with kidney failure, then admitted her into the hospital. Within hours, Richardson was being prepped for surgery to prepare for her dialysis. When I rst got sick, Tyree was a senior in high school. I became bedridden and couldnt do anything for myself, so he would go to school and come back at lunch to check on me. Today, Richardson has to undergo dialysis three days a week for three and a half hours each day. And, every day aer her dialysis, Tyree is there to take care of her. When my kidneys failed, my vision went bad and I couldnt see very well. Tyree has to take me everywhere I go because my vision is bad now. Richardsons oldest son, Terry, is doing his part too. Terry is going to donate one of his kidneys to me, Richardson explains. He said from the start if hes a match, he would give me one of his kidneys. Richardson and her sons found out recently that Terry is a match for her, so he is undergoing additional tests. He has really been supportive, Richardson explains. Hes still undergoing some tests, but were condent hell be approved for the transplant. However, because Richardson is a resident of Georgia, shes having to raise money to pay for her medications because her insurance doesnt pay for it. My doctors told me if I were a resident of Florida, I wouldnt have to worry about how my medications are going to be paid for, Richardson says. Richardsons mom, Hazel, and her sisters and brothers are all helping her raise funds to pay for her transplant medication. is weekend were having a fund-raiser to raise money for my transplant medicine, she says. e insurance will pay for my surgery and for Terrys surgery, but it wont pay for the medicine. Whatever amount I raise, the Kidney Transplant Foundation of Georgia will match it. e Richardson Family will be selling sh dinners Friday evening. On Saturday, the family will be selling rib, chicken, hamburger and hot dog dinners at Loughridge Park. For more information about Richardson and her kidney transplant, visit mysisterskidney.com. To place a dinner order, please call 838-3704. An account has also been set up at Wells Fargo Bank--Beverly Richardson Kidney Foundation for donations. THE PERRY NEWS-HERALD April 6 & 13, 1978 Faith family friendsEditors Note: Local historian Henry McLeod has compiled an impressive collection of Taylor County history now available on a website appropriately titled Taylor County & Perry, Florida History (https://sites.google.com/site/taylorcountyhistory/). His latest addition to the site is an extensive prole of local churches. This weeks featured history was submitted by Steinhatchees Fellowship Baptist Church. In 1981 a group of Southern Baptist wanted a church in the southern end of Taylor County. Athena Baptist Church of Perry sponsored the congregation as a mission. The Rev. Frank Padilla was the rst mission pastor of Fellowship Baptist Mission. The congregation met in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Carroll until the sanctuary was built. On Oct. 30, 1981, the lot was purchased. It was cleared by family and friends. On May 2, 1982, a ground-breaking ceremony, led by the Rev. Olan Wills of Athena, was held. As soon as the sanctuary walls were up and the roof completed, they began meeting there. Fellowship Baptist Church of Steinhatchee was constituted on Sept. 18, 1983, with 54 charter members. The Rev. Mickey Adams was pastor. With much volunteer labor from Taylor Baptist Association, under the direction of the Rev. Carlton Owens, the sanctuary and an educational building were nished and were debt free. Fellowship was the rst new church in the association in 21 years. Church mission takes root in Steinhatchee Calendars have long been a staple of courtesy calendars may come with glossy illustrations Perry Banking Company gifted its customers with beautifully designed calendar plates. One such plate survived the ensuing decades and is now thanks to the generosity of local resident Ruby Morgan. (Photo left) Morgan presented the plate the name of bank President D.G. Malloy as well business and banking community.Serving up 1909


A-3 Perry News-Herald April 12-13, 2013 Eagle Scout honor Shane Van Dielen recently earned the Eagle Scout award, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held for him Saturday, March 23, at the Perry Elks Lodge. Shown left to right are: Dick Joyal, Exalted Ruler Perry Elks Lodge; David Adams, Scoutmaster Troop 600; Eagle Scout Shane Van Dielen; and his parents, Shalon and Randy Van Dielen. to be a part of that, NFMC Chief Executive Ofcer Joel Montgomery told the council. The application deadline for the grant is in mid-May. Community involvement and support are critical. If you dont have that, and other applicants do, then obviously you are not going to be as competitive. A funding match from a local taxing authority is key and you can expect a $4 return for every $1 match. So we are here to ask for matching funds up to $500,000 and the deed/ title for a building site, Montgomery said. City Manager Bob Brown has been working with NFMC on the project for several months. Tuesdays presentation was the next step as the group moves forward with its application. Would the funds be repaid to the city? Councilman Don Cook asked. The concept is it would be a loan, Brown said. The group is eyeing the city-owned public parking lot located on Washington Street. Our application would be stronger if we already had title to the property we are looking to build on, Montgomery noted. We are limited in our growth in our current locations. Expanding our ofce space with a new facility would allow us to bring in two medical providers, two dental providers and two dental hygienists as well as four support staff members for each full-time medical and dental position (not to include the hygienist), Montgomery said. So you already have one medical provider and one dentist herebasically you would be doubling your staff which means youd be moving 22 employees to downtown as well as your patients, right? Gunter asked in clarifying the request. We would also be adding behavioral health services as well, Montgomery said. So our $500,000 investment would help to bring in a business that would have annual salaries in excess of $525,000, Gunter stated. You would never nd another opportunity to leverage $1 and get a $4 return. I think its a good investment, Councilman Mike Deming said. That doesnt include the utilities, franchise fees and other benets the city will see, he noted. I move that we agree to give a letter of commitment of up to $500,000 to NFMC for the project, Councilman Cook said. Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton offered a second and the motion passed unanimously. Next we need to work on an agreement to recoup the funds, Gunter said. Well start working on that and the letter, and the council will review both before going forward, Brown said. On Thursday Montgomery said the grant application deadline is May 17. The grants will be awarded June 18, so there is about a 30-day turnaround, he said. NFMC has committed to covering the soft costsarchitect fees, engineer fees, permit fees, if any, construction managementthose add up quickly and we expect that to be about $550,000, Montgomery said. It is a very competitive application eld. All federally qualied health centers in Florida are eligible to apply. There is not that much money out there for these projects, so we may not be successful it depends on how strong our application is compared to others. The citys actions with the letter of commitment and the donation of the property certainly help make our application stronger. If we are successful, we would move as quickly as possible to get construction underway. Without knowing what kind of bureaucratic hurdles we might encounter, it is hard to predict a timeline, Montgomery said. Brown called the project a good jumpstart to downtowns revitalization efforts. Getting a $2.4 million building downtown will certainly help encourage other investors to look downtown as well. $2.4 MILLION Continued from page 1 City would see $4 return for every $1 investment Taylor Countys legislators, Rep. Halsey Beshears and Sen. Bill Montford, both voted in favor of the bill. Although similar bills have been proposed to ban internet cafes in each of the past several legislative sessions, none made it into law. The mood in Tallahassee seemingly changed, however, after state law enforcement ofcials recently arrested a number of individuals on charges of racketeering for their alleged involvement with Allied Veterans of the World, which authorities have called an illegal gambling network that included internet cafes. The scandal also led to the resignation of Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who once consulted for the organization. According to reports, at least one organization in Florida is looking into possible legal action against the state over the ban. INTERNET CAFES Continued from page 1 Beshears, Montford both voted in favor of cafe ban


A-4 Perry News-Herald April 12-13, 2013 Living Geri Forbes, left, CEO at Doctors Memorial Hospital, was introduced by Glenda Hamby. Noting the necessity and yet the fear of change, Forbes preceded her talk on the hospital by involving her audience in a game of change.Why should you use DMH? Forbes has a list...BY SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor You may not choose Doctors Memorial Hospital for open-heart surgery, but new CEO Geri Forbes maintains that there is a myriad of other reasons why the local hospital is perfect for your healthcare needs. She marched through many of those reasons for the Perry Womans Club on Wednesday, reminding everyone of her interest in their compliments as well as their concerns. We understand that life demands that we cope, adapt and change. Were in the process of implementing changes that we hope will improve our customer service, which we we call patient experiences. We know that there are some phenomenally nice changes in healthcare today, and at DMH. We also recognize that people have more choices now, so we must improve in order to best suit the needs of this community. Forbes reminded members: We have welcomed a female physician, Dr. Shiva Mahinrad, who returned Jan. 3. She is a very smart lady--speaks ve languages--and is seeing patients at the DMH Plaza. She is a wonderful addition to our staff. Forbes also listed Dr. Keith Moore, general surgeon, whose qualications and scope of care are tremendous. She spoke of the hospitals swing bed program which she called, our version of rehab beds. This program allows individuals--especially those recovering from hip or knee replacement-to receive short-term rehabilitative therapy easing the transition from acute hospital care to home, she said. She spoke of the hospitals afliation with Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic (TOC). We now have four TOC physicians which rotate through our hospital, she said. On the broader continuum of services, she plugged the cardiologists and urologists, as well as the pain management specialist and the convenient location for CTs, MRIs and ECHOs. The new DMH opened its doors 10 years ago this week, Forbes noted, and wants to continue being your hospital. Forbes was introduced to the group by Glenda Hamby who is one of the new board members for the hospital. Tell them about the piano, Hamby urged Forbes. We didnt have room for the piano at our new home, so I brought it to the hospital because I am sensitive to the role of music and art therapy. We know healing is not just about sutures. The piano belonged to Forbes mother who was a traveling music teacher in Connecticut, serving four, one-room schoolhouses. I think she would be pleased with where it is now, she added. Roseheads take skillful aim at fun! By BONNIE WELLS Red Hat Poet Cupid, draw back your bowand let your arrows ow.. Twenty eight Red Hat members drove to Fiddlers again.

Campbell, PPD. A-12 Perry News-Herald April 12-13, 2013 to implement a nancially appropriate and responsible delivery schedule, the statement said. The board believes that Congress has left it with no choice but to delay this implementation at this time. The board also wants to ensure that customers of the Postal Service are not unduly burdened by ongoing uncertainties and are able to adjust their business plans accordingly. The board continues to support the transition to a new national delivery schedule. Such a transition will generate approximately $2 billion in annual cost savings and is a necessary part of a larger ve-year business plan to restore the Postal Service to longterm nancial stability. According to numerous polls, this new delivery schedule is widely supported by the American public. Our new delivery schedule is also supported by the administration and some members of Congress. To restore the Postal Service to long-term nancial stability, the Postal Service requires the exibility to reduce costs and generate new revenues to close an ever widening budgetary gap. It is not possible for the Postal Service to meet signicant cost reduction goals without changing its delivery schedule--any rational analysis of our current nancial condition and business options leads to this conclusion. Delaying responsible changes to the Postal Service business model only increases the potential that the Postal Service may become a burden to the American taxpayer, which is avoidable. The board continues to support the Postal Services veyear business plan and the legislative goals identied in that plan, which will return the Postal Service to nancial solvency. The board additionally urges Congress to quickly pass comprehensive postal legislation, including provisions that would afrmatively provide the USPS with the ability to establish an appropriate national delivery schedule.
