Buckeye Technologies Inc. and Georgia-Pacic LLC announced Wednesday that they have reached a denitive agreement for Georgia-Pacic to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Buckeye Technologies common stock for $37.50 per share in cash.   The transaction, subject to completion, is valued at approximately $1.5 billion, including debt. Under the terms of the agreement, which has been unanimously approved by both companies boards of directors, stockholders of Buckeye Technologies will receive $37.50 in cash per share, representing a premium of approximately 29 percent based on the average closing price of Buckeye Technologies common stock over the last week. Founded in 1927 as a wholesaler of hardwood lumber, Georgia-Pacic has grown through expansion and acquisitions to become one of the worlds leading manufacturers and marketers of tissue, pulp, paper, packaging, building products and related chemicals. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia-Pacic employs nearly 35,000 people worldwide. The company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange from 1949 through 2005, when it was acquired as a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc., a privately owned company based in Wichita, Kansas. This acquisition is the largest since GeorgiaPacic was acquired by Koch Industries. It currently has ve facilities in Florida, including: a pulp and paper mill and a chip mill in Palatka; an oriented strand board mill in Hosford; an idled plywood mill in Hawthorne and a Southern Pine sawmill in Cross City, which has been nonoperational for several years. Brothers David Koch and Charles Koch are executives and owners of Wichita, Kansas-based Koch Industries. Their holdings in the company make them some of the worlds richest men, with an estimated wealth of $45.6 billion each. Buckeye Technologies, based in Memphis, Tenn., is a leading manufacturer and marketer of specialty bers and nonwoven materials made from wood and cotton.   The companys manufacturing assets include its specialty pulp mill in Perry; cotton cellulose mills in Memphis, Tenn., and Lumberton, N.C.; and mills producing nonwovens at Mt. Holly, N.C., and Steinfurt, Germany. Buckeye Technologies also has global sales ofces in Beijing, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Switzerland. The company has approximately 1,200 employees worldwide about half of which are employed in Taylor County. Buckeye Chairman and CEO John Crowe was at the Foley mill Wednesday meeting with employees. He told the Perry NewsHerald that the deal with Georgia-Pacic will be positive for people in Taylor County and all of North Florida. The vision we had for the Foley mill and the company will be accelerated because of the strength of GeorgiaPacic, Crowe said. He added that the transaction will enable Buckeyes stockholders to realize signicant value, while also representing an important next step in the growth of Buckeye Technologies. We are pleased that Georgia-Pacic recognizes the signicant value of our companys special and unique assets, talented employees and Serving the Tree Capital of the South Since 1889 Perry News-HeraldPerry News-Herald 50 Friday/ SaturdayApril 26-27, 2013 Index One section 124th Year, No. 17www.perrynewspapers.com Weather Friday85 55 Saturday 84 58 Sunday81 59 40% Perry News-Herald Perry News-Herald Looking Back . .........

Senate gives counties breathing room on Medicaids additional annual costs?The Florida Senate on Tuesday modied a bill overhauling the way counties will be required to pay the state for certain Medicaid expenses, and although the new legislation will still ultimately cost Taylor County taxpayers more than $100,000 annually in additional expenses, that increase will now be spread over a sevenyear period rather than hitting in a single year. The Senate Appropriations committee unanimously (17-0) approved an amendment to SB 1884 which replaced the entire language approved April 23, adding in a transition period for counties to adjust to the new payment scheme. According to Senate estimates, the new system would result in a $107,000 increase for Taylor County (or 38.9 percent) next scal year. The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) estimated the increase could be as much as 49 percent. Under current 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 Please see page 14When Taylor County cancer survivors gather Monday evening, April 29, for the annual reception given in their honor, two very special guests will be recognizedBeverly Parker and Marilyn Johnson, the 2013 Relay For Life Honorary Chairs.

April 26-27, 2013 Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comLet the punishment My grandmother didnt believe in sparing the rod and spoiling the child. Her theory was the punishment should t the crime or, in our case, the act of disobedience or misbehavior. A raised eyebrow. A frown and a pinch. Or, a spanking that lasted way aer the belt was back in her top dresser drawer. ese were all part of the punishment she handed out frequently. To let my grandmother tell it, she could have written the oen heard phrase, is is going to hurt me more than its going to hurt you. is statement usually preceded the worst whippings, which sometimes made my brothers, cousins and I doubt whether or not this was really true. Aer years of wracking our brains, none of us can recall ever seeing tears in her eyes as she handed out her punishment. e only proof that she really may have been hurting as much as we were was her love of parables or lessons learned. She loved to say, I told you so. is was her preferred method of chastisement. In case youre asking, what is a parable, a parable is a simple story that teaches or illustrates a lesson. My grandmother would have clapped and cheered if she had been in my classroom last week when one of my students oered up her own parable about not listening to a former teacher. e assignment was simple: write a 5-paragraph essay explaining the most important lesson youve learned while in middle school. Most of the students responses involved lessons theyd learned about socializing, gossiping and failing tests. However, this particular students lesson involved not following directions. Her essay began, If theres one thing Ive learned during middle school, it is to listen and pay attention to directions. e students had been told to write a research paper on a historical gure and to use only credible sources. Do not use Wikepedia because anyone can write and post information on Wikepedia, the teacher told them. And the information may not be accurate. e student was the rst to raise her hand when the class was asked who would like to read their essay. She stood and walked to the front of the classroom with her neatly typed essay in her hand. She cleared her throat, stood up straight, then began reading. Rosa Parks, she said, is one of the most important Arican-American women in the United States history. e other students nodded in agreement. She is famous because she went to jail for drinking from a fountain at a courthouse, the student read as the other students and the teacher began to giggle. Undeterred and ignoring the snickering, the student continued. She was assassinated a few days later. e entire class laughed out loud, which caused the student to stop and stare questionably at her classmates. What are you laughing about? she asked. e teacher responded by asking, Where did you get your information? From Wikepedia, she answered. I thought I told you not to use Wikepedia because it was not reliable, the teacher said. Yes. en why did you use it? Because I was being lazy, she answered. Am I going to get in trouble? No, the teacher answered still laughing. Youve been punished enough for assassinating Rosa Parks. e class laughed even louder. Indeed, the punishment had t the crime. THE PERRY NEWS-HERALD April 27, 1978 The measure of a man Lt. Robert Clem Allisons life may have ended in a ery airplane crash on Aug. 11, 1955, but his story continues. This past weekend brought Allisons only living relativea cousinto visit the site of the crash located some 13 miles east of Perry on Highway 27. The cousin, who lives in California, brought with him treasured photos that offer a brief glimpse of the caliber of man who sacriced himself so that others could life that long ago day. (The crash happened when Allisons plane malfunctioned and he was forced to make an emergency landing. However, as he landed a log truck and a car intercepted his path.

We have been greatly blessed and would not trade our journey for anything. My journey began at the age of ve when I was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. Our journey (Parker and husband, Cla) began March 16, 2001, when I had a massive heart attack. I have had many xes since then including by-pass surgery. Because of my high risk health issues, I was on Dr. Afshs watch list. Dr. Afsh called me and told me I needed to come talk to him right away. I went straight there. He told me that he had been closely monitoring me and that I had CLL (chronic lymphatic leukemia)...I had no idea what that meant. At that moment I was just scared and stunned. Dr. Afsh sent me to Tallahassee to see Dr. Sheedy. He conrmed Dr. Afshs diagnosis. Dr. Sheedy told me it was at stage 0 and for now I just needed to be monitored every three months. He explained that I could go 25 years or more without the cancer getting worse. He told me the CLL was treatable but not curable. In 2007 I went to Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville for assessment of my various medical issues, including my CLL. I underwent a bone marrow biopsy and they conrmed what Dr. Sheedy had said; that I just needed to be monitored every three months. My symptoms were getting worse. I underwent another bone marrow biopsy never expecting what Cla and I would be told. On Feb. 11, 2011--my 48th birthday--we were told that the cancer had progressed to the point where treatment was needed. We were still not expecting the second thing the doctor said, that the treatment needed was chemotherapy. Again we were told that the cancer was treatable but not curable. Over the next ve months I underwent very strong chemotherapy. I would get four days of chemo and then four weeks off, and was to continue that cycle until I had six chemo treatments. After my third treatment I told them that God had healed me and I did not need any more chemotherapy. I underwent another bone marrow biopsy. The bone marrow biopsy conrmed what I knew--that God had healed my cancer. The doctors do not like to use the word healed. They preferred remission. The doctor still wanted me to nish my six chemo treatments. After my fourth treatment, my blood numbers bottomed out and they were too low for me have any more chemo treatments. After a couple of weeks I underwent another bone marrow biopsy. Again the CLL was gone; it was not in remission, it was gone. The doctors were left scratching their heads. They again explained that CLL was treatable but not curable. Yet there was no denying that my CLL was gone; by the hand of God I had been healed. Even though I no longer had CLL my immune system never recovered from the effects of chemo treatments. In late November of last year I had a medical emergency where I was totally unresponsive and had to be taken to the emergency room. It was revealed that my blood counts, all of them, were extremely low and I had to be transfused with four units of blood to eventually come to my senses. I of course went to Mayo Clinic for a diagnosis and underwent another bone marrow biopsy. The hematology team found in short order the cause of my need for a blood transfusion. I was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), yet another blood cancer. My MDS was a result of undergoing chemo for my CLL. Praise the Lord God Almighty, I do not have CLL, even the Bone Marrow Biopsy performed a couple of weeks again conrmed no CLL. As a result of my MDS, I will be undergoing a stem cell transplant around the end of May or the rst of June, provided everything stays on track. My sister Cindy Carter has been dened as a perfect match. My wonderful sister has agreed to be my stem cell donor. While waiting on my transplant I am undergoing chemotherapy to get the cancer under control. The reason my loving and faithful brother, Vance Howell, will be standing in for me Monday evening is because I have no immune system and have to stay away from people. I leave you with this. Cla and I would not trade our journey for anything as it has brought us closer to the Creator of Heaven and Earth and all that is within. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Apply now for summer TIDBITS: program at New Brooklyn Baptist First Presbyterian Church of Perry continues to offer pastoral counseling services to its congregation and the community at large, with sessions structured for both individuals and couples. Counseling is conducted by the Rev. Dr. Robert R. Lutz, a Lutheran pastor who was ordained in 1972, and now is a member of First Presbyterian. He holds a Ph.D. in pastoral counseling, and has practiced as a pastoral counselor since 1984. Lutz has served congregations in Maryland and Pennsylvania, and has been on the faculties of Loyola College and Towson State University, both in Maryland. Paulist Press published his book, Surviving in Ministry. He is a national certied counselor and a Diplomate in the American Association of Pastor Counselors. In pastoral counseling, Lutz said, the natural connection between the physical, emotional and spiritual or religious aspects of the whole person is recognized. Trained in both psychology, psychotherapy and theology, the pastoral counselor utilizes a variety of treatments to help people face lifes challenges when they seem too stressful or out of control, he said. Pastoral counseling provides a faith-based, nonsectarian approach that respects the spiritual and religious traditions of those who seek help. Lutz commented an overwhelming number of Americans recognize the close link between faith/religious values and mental health. They often prefer to seek help from a mental health professional who recognizes and respects these values, he added. If youre wondering what kinds of issues pastoral counselors address, he provides a list: self-esteem; depression; stress and anxiety; coping with illness, pain or disability; relationship issues; spiritual and religious conicts; loss and grief; major life changes; abuse and trauma issues; marital issues and pre-marital assessments. All counseling sessions will take place at First Presbyterian with fees negotiated on a sliding scale. Lutz can be reached by calling 843-3083. You can leave a condential message with a return phone number, and I will return your call promptly, he said. New Bethel marks 63rd year New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church will observe its 63rd anniversary on Sunday, April 28. Faith and Worship Ministries of Lloyd along with Elder Ronald Rackley Sr., pastor, will provide the 11 a.m. service for this occasion. Everyone in the community is invited to attend. The Relay For Life team at Northside Church is making an In Memory quilt with all proceeds benetting Relay For Life. You can have the name of your loved one on the quilt with the year they lost their battle to cancer. If you know the kind of cancer, the symbolic color of ribbon can be used as well, said Marty Skow who is working with Sabrina Edwards, and other volunteers, on this project. The cost is $5 per name and order forms are available at Embroidery By Marty, 101 Ellis St., Perry, FL 32347 (old depot). Northside pieces together memorial for loved ones
