BY SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor The Boston Marathon explosions have reverberated throughout the nation, and Perry hasnt been exempt from the anxiety they produced. We live just two miles from the explosion, said Hannah Tedder Rofno who with husband, Anthony, moved to Boston in August of last year. It has really been surreal, she added. Rofno is a Registered Nurse who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University of North Florida. She works in the GI Unit of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) which handled victims of Mondays explosions. Many of the nurses were scheduled to leave at 3 p.m. but they held all of us, not knowing how many patients to expect, she said. Our emphasis was to expedite our patients (endoscopy) so their care was managed and we could help out in other areas. As it turned out, the ER at MGH was able to handle its patient load so Rofno, and other nurses, were allowed to leave by 6:30 p.m. It would have been overwhelming for one hospital, but because there are so many excellent medical facilities in the area, the hospitals were able to share the load and I think that surely saved many peoples lives, she said. Rofno noted that she was impressed with her hospitals performance under duress. MGH had a plan in place and everybody knew exactly what to do, she said. The last time they had been on lockdown was 9/11. Copley Square, she explained, is a great area of Boston. There are lots of really good restaurants and its fun just to walk up and down the streets and see all the shops. We had our anniversary meal last October at Atlantic Fish Company which is located Lady of the Year to be honored SundayIn the 41-year tradition of naming a Lady of the Year, teachers have outranked nurses, but they run a close race with volunteers who span the community with good will and talents. Sunday, April 21, another name will be added to the ranks when the 2013 Lady of the Year is named at 2 p.m. at the Catholic Parish Hall. The community is encouraged to attend.U.S. Hwy. 27 will close today; reopens MondayU.S. Highway 27 will be completely closed and all trafc detoured at the railroad crossing near County Road 30 east of Perry beginning Friday, April 19, at 5 p.m. and reopening on Monday, April 22, by 5 p.m. The closure is necessary to replace the railroad crossing, according to Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) ofcials. Westbound trafc will be detoured to County Road 30 to U.S. 19 and back to U.S. 27/U.S. 98. Eastbound trafc will use the same detour in the opposite direction. Off-duty law enforcement ofcers will assist with the road closure and detour.

On Tuesday, the Senate Health Policy Committee unanimously passed previous SB 7561 as committee bill SB 1884 and referred it to the Senate Appropriates Committee. The bill would change the way the state bills counties for eligible Medicaid charges. According to Florida law, counties are responsible for 35 percent of bills for extended hospital stays (days seven to 45) accrued by Medicaid patients who are residents of that county, regardless of where in the state they receive treatment. They are also responsible for 35 percent of nursing home or intermediate facility charges in excess of $170 per month (limited to $55 per resident per month). The Agency for Health Care Administration (ACHA) bills counties each month for eligible charges and counties can then contest those bills. Last year, the legislature passed a bill in which the state mandated counties pay years of accumulated contested bills. According to state gures, Taylor County owed the state $377,000, but after an audit conducted last summer, it was determined that the state actually owed the county a $48,000 credit. The new bill under consideration now, however, would change the entire system through which the state bills counties. With work continuing on the Steinhatchee public boat ramp, residents are advised that the contractor is set to pave the parking area adjacent to the ramp beginning Monday, April 22, and continuing through Wednesday, April 24. The county and the contractor request that all boaters using the ramp during this period to please park across 1st Avenue South on the county owned grassed area, a county engineering ofcial said. The county again would like to thank everyone for their patience during these improvements to the community. Work on Phase II of the boat ramp construction Please see page 14 Please see page 3 The Taylor County Health Department is not closing its doors and there are no denite plans to cut any services. Director Stephen Tullos spoke to the Perry NewsHerald this week to address a number of rumors spreading about the facility. Were not necessarily cutting services, but were looking ahead as part of our future planning, he said. There have been several in-house discussions about the possibility of reducing primary care services, he conceded, but no decisions have been made.Health department not cutting services Please see page 3 Boaters: watch where you park Largest turnout in state Walk promotes prevention, healing More than 600 men, women and children came out Tuesday, April 16, for the Community Walk

April 19-20, 2013 Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comA long time coming Its been a long time coming. Monday, the book publishers--Strebor Books/Simon & Schuster--who have made 2013 one of the best years of my life by optioning the rights to Our First Love, which I attempted to self-publish in 2008, optioned the rights to e Pages We Forget, a novel I attempted to self-publish in 2001. In August 2001, I printed 300 copies of e Pages We Forget, a novel about a woman torn between the man whose touch ruined her life and the man whose unconditional love saved her. Early one Saturday morning three weeks later, I received a call from a man who identied himself as Peter Miller, a big shot New York City literary agent. Peter told me that a writer friend of mine had given him a copy of e Pages We Forget. I love the novel, he said. And, I want to represent you. I was speechless at rst, but aer waiting for years to hear those words, I uttered the only words that came to mind. You do? Yes, I do, he responded. You have a special story here, and Im condent that I can get you a publishing deal with a very nice advance. Still unable to speak clearly, I replied, You can? Well, Ive gotten six-gure advances for three of my African-American clients this year, he continued his sales pitch, and, I believe I can do the same for you. at was all I needed to hear. Where do I sign? I asked. I didnt expect Peters next statement or question. I wish I could have had you sign the contracts yesterday, he said. en, he asked, If I y down to Miami today, can you meet me in Deereld Beach tomorrow morning? Of course I can, I responded then joked, as soon as I nd out where Deereld Beach is. Because this was before GPS systems, I pulled out a map and found Deereld Beach. Next, I called my friend Montay and told him that I had to go to Deereld Beach and asked if he would ride with me. When are we leaving? Montay asked. In a couple of hours, I responded. Im already packed, he said excitedly. Lets go. Montay and I got on the road to Deereld Beach around seven that evening and arrived a little aer four in the morning. I met Peter in the lobby of a hotel near the beach, and we went into the hotels restaurant and had breakfast. Peter cut to the chase. Sign here, here and here, he said. Two hours later, I was back on the road to Perry, smiling from ear to ear as I counted dollar signs. Peter called me a few days later and said that he was arranging luncheons and pitch sessions with some of the industrys largest publishers. Im going to try and start a bidding war between the publishers, he informed me. So, be ready. And then the unfathomable happened. September 11, 2001. Peter called a week or two aer that horric day and told me that several of the publishers who were initially interested in the novel passed on it because they felt the country was sad and not in the mood for a tearjerker. Disappointed and depressed, it was ve years before I sat down to write another novel. Two months ago, Strebor Books, oered to publish Our First Love. Aer that, I dusted o e Pages We Forget and changed the title to Yesterdays Songs. en, a small publisher, Plenary Publishing oered to publish Yesterdays Songs. However, my contract with Strebor/S&S requires me to give them rst look at my work. e company will publish Our First Love in October 2013, ve years aer I nished the novel, then publish Yesterdays Songs in March 2014, 14 years aer it was completed. It really has been a long time coming, but thank God that it came. THE PERRY NEWS-HERALD April 20, 1978 Faith family friendsLakesides mission ...to win the lost 1940-41 basketball team team. Catharin Norman was the team coach. Shown are (left to right) Lucille Partin, Clara Giddens, and Coach Norman. Editors 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 Lakeside Baptist Church. This church was called out of the San Pedro Baptist Church to organize and later to be identied as the Lakeside Baptist Church. Its mission--to win the lost. Some 47 Christians agreed, under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, a church was needed as a witness in this community. This group met in the Foley Baptist Church, Foley, on Thursday night, Sept. 17, 1953, for the purpose of organizing a new Missionary Baptist Church. It was decided to meet in Brother Howard Carrins barn until the new church building was ready to move into. Brother and Mrs. Carrin donated two acres of land for the building site. Work started on the building November 1953 with most of the work done by the men of the church. The rst service was held in the new building (although not completed) on Wednesday, June 2, 1954. Before the end of the year, gas heat was installed in the auditorium. During the ministry of Brother Francis Cruce in 1959, the west wing educational building was constructed and a baptistry was installed. Mrs. Elizabeth Landingham, a member of the church, painted a picture in the baptistry in 1970. During the ministry of Brother Claud Crosby, the pastorium was built. On March 23, 1958, the building committee (Ralph Carlton, John Ritch and Jesse Falling) recommended that the church purchase the lot where the pastorium now stands. Ground-breaking ceremonies were on Sept. 25, 1960, and work began immediately with most of the work being done by the men of the church. Dedication of the pastorium was March 5, 1961. The Crosby family was the rst to live in the new pastorium. During the ministry of Brother Hubert Barnes, the church ofce was opened. Annie Joe Brannen had been doing this work since 1958, so she was given the position of church secretary. Under the leadership of pastor Brother Roy King, on June 13, 1979, a committee was elected by the church to study the cost and make plans for a fellowship hall and kitchen. The committee members were Hoyt Regans, Ralph Blue, A. L. Adkinson, Donald Todd, Marion Sullivan, Edna Parker and Annie Joe Brannen. On May 30, 1982, the church dedicated a new fellowship hall and kitchen along with 15 folding tables and 100 new folding chairs to the glory of God, completely debt free. From the beginning in 1953, Lakeside has had an active Sunday School, Church Training, WMU and Brotherhood.

By FLORRIE BURROUGHS Shady Grove News Did you know that Dachshund + Jack Russell = Jackshund? I love my pups. My rst experience with a Dachshund was in 1994. His name was Mickey. In 2003, another Dachshund walked through the doors of our church in Newberry as we were dismissing on Easter Sunday evening. He looked a lot like my Mickey and folks who knew me well thought it was Mickey. I picked the pup up and took him home that night, not wanting to leave him to the trafc on State Road 26. My husband was saying surely he belongs to someone and we dont need another dog, I agreed and on Monday morning we returned to the church and put up signs found dogwith a number to call. Several days went by and no one called to claim the pup and, by now, my grandchildren and I had already fallen in love with this second little Dachshund. Even Mickey enjoyed his company and they fast became buddies. As my husband kept protesting we dont need another dog, I was quick to remind him that God sent him, He sent him right to the church. Well you can guess what happened; we kept him and named him JR. And, he has been the best pet ever. He is now about 14 years old and has turned gray on his face. He is pretty stubborn at times, but ever so faithful to come home and jump into my lap. After the rst Dachshund, Mickey, died in 2010, JR was pretty lonely and I thought I should get another pup for company. In the spring of 2011, a friend who lives in the area had picked up a lost Dachshund-looking pup that was running along State Road 14 and asked that I put him in my fenced back yard while she went into town. She would then return and get the pup and try to nd his owner or someone that would take him. I told her that I had been considering another dog and I might like to take him if she failed in nding the owner. She gladly left him with me. After the rst night I called her and said Youve got to take this dog back he wanted to sleep with me and kept me up all night. The friend came and got the pup and explained that he might sleep in a kennel and I told her if that was true, then I would take him back. After keeping him overnight and nding out that he slept well in a kennel, she brought him back to me. I named him Jack. Now as it turns out, this Dachshund-looking pup turns out to be part Jack Russell and if you know anything about Jack Russells, they have a lot of energybut they are so sweet and so possessive of their owner. Jack is jealous when JR gets in my lap rst and will bark pretending to need to go out until JR gets down, then Jack will quickly take JRs place. Mornings nd me walking the dogs. Jack will take off to go play with my brothers horses and cows across the road at every opportunity, so I have to put him on a leash. JR on the other hand doesnt need a leash. He stays pretty close. It is good to get out early and walk, even on the chilly mornings, and we usually see the sun peeking over the trees from the east as we walk. Its a ne time and their need to walk makes me get up and out which is very good for me. Some of my family thinks I have really gone to the dogs and I suppose I have. They are a little bother, sometimes they limit my going, but mostly they bring joy to me. I think Ill keep them!50th Year Class Reunion It came in the mail today . an invitation to my 50year class reunion. Wow, 50 years. Unbelievable isnt it. After Shady Grove School, I attended Taylor County High for my 9th grade through graduation and made some lifetime friends. I look forward to being with them again.

TIDBITS: People, like butteries, are amazing BY SARAH HALL Butteries, like people, are all unique---no two are alike. One will say, that is so very beautiful and another will say, I dont think that looks so goodor its not as pretty as the other one. Butteries and people are amazing! Butteries taste with their feet. Butteries wings are covered with different colored tiny scales that make up the pretty patterns we see. Their colors and patterns blend in with their natural surroundings to protect them from predators. People dont taste with their feet, they taste with their mouths. People have noses. People dont have colorful body colors and hues. People have their differences but they blend together, either to do right or wrong. Amazing isnt it! Unlike butteries we dont grow wings, but we do travel from place to place. Butteries belong to the universe, while people belong to God. Like the butteries we have the opportunity to share love and beauty to those who chooses to enjoy us. Take a minute to pray: Our Father, there is a new mood that comes with the morning sunrise to drive the darkness and disappointments away. There is a new hope rising within me. Thank you, Father for your presence, your peace, your patience and your power. Grant me, Lord, the courage, the faith and the love to believe it! Amen Appreciation service An appreciation service for Nadine Mango will be this Sunday, April 21, at Sweet Home M.B. Church. Please come!

A-10 Perry News-Herald April 19-20, 2013 next to the site of the explosion. Rofno shudders when she remembers that her husband had planned to go to the nish line on Monday, just to enjoy the celebration. At the last minute, he had to take care of a school matter and he wasnt able to go. She pauses for a moment, and no words are necessary. Anthony is currently pursuing a MBA degree at MIT. He served seven years in the U.S. Army including a 15-month tour of duty in Baghdad, and was then medically retired. During an upcoming 10-week internship for Anthony in Texas, Rofno will return to Perry to be close to family as she looks forward to the arrival of their rst child, a girl, in August. Her parents, Sheila and Jim Tedder, and Anthonys family, Deborah and Sonny Brooks, all of Perry, will enjoy the anticipation, too. Rofno has worked at Capital Regional Medical Center, Palmetto Health Richland in Columbia, S.C., and the Center for Digestive and Liver Health in Savannah, Ga. She is a 2003 graduate of Taylor County High School. As she reects on the horror on what would have traditionally been an exhilarating day for Bostonians, she remembers her colleague who nished the marathon only six minutes before the explosion. Even though the phones were down for a little while, we were able to send texts and learn that she was ne. Nurses will tell you that seeing this kind of trauma on the outside is totally different than seeing it in a hospital. So while nobody I know was physically injured, we were all affected.

But, for the most part, the city is trying to nd a semblance of normalcy again. I was in Florida when 9/11 occurred, Rofno said. It was tragic but it was not in my backyard.

The Taylor County Commission contracted with Coleman Construction, Inc., of Newberry, in February to do the work. The boat ramp is located at the former Ideal Marina property, which the county purchased in 2010 for $2.54 million. Any such changes would affect primary care only, not the department of womens health, dental or other programs. Tullos said that with the expansion of other primary care providers here, the percentage of patients coming to the health department who do not pay is on the rise. Were looking down the road at what were going to do, he said. First, is there a need for us to be in the primary care business? And second, can we afford to be in the primary care business? Tullos said the department starting offering primary care services here because they saw a need and as they plan for the future, one element they are looking at is whether that need is being fullled elsewhere. Compared to other counties our size, we have an abundance of resources as far as primary care, he said. That is not necessarily the same for dental and womens health services, he added. Tullos also addressed a rumor stating that the facility was shutting its doors entirely, which he said was false.
