News Forum The Perry City Councils recent decision to post signs in front of the homes of registered sexual predators had an unintended consequence, ushing out an offender who had not registered his most current address with authorities. During Tuesday nights regular city meeting, City Manager Bob Brown related that one day after the sign was posted at an address on Campbell Street, residents of that address began calling council members with complaints. The homeowner came to the Perry Police Department (PPD) and gave a sworn statement that the registered predator (Charles Leon Tinsley) did not reside at the residence, but used it for a mail drop, Brown said. A deputy from the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce actually went to the address the day before we posted the sign, and apparently just by coincidence, the man was at the home and told the deputy that was where he lived. So the next day, we posted the sign in the right-of-way in front of the residence. However, now weve found out that he (Tinsley) not only didnt live at the address, but had apparently been living at two other homes since he registered the Campbell Street residence as his permanent home. He was just using Citys new policy ushes out unregistered sexual predator (Left photo) Charles Leon Tinsley today; and Tinsley in an undated photo from the Department of Corrections.Please see page 3 Taylor County High School (TCHS) Valedictorian James Clover may have taken a more laid back approach to his studies, but by no means was he any less passionate about doing his best. It is a mindset that can be seen in his advice to those students following him and his fellow 2013 graduates: Dont panic. Just go into it thinking you can handle anything they can throw at you. Take one step at a time and you should be ne. He also adds, Dont fall asleep in class. Clover is the son of Terri Clover of Perry and David Clover of Houston, Texas. His family moved here from Dixie County when he was in third grade. Three years later he joined band and it was there where he met friend Eli Walker, who is salutatorian this year. Outside of school, Clover was a Boy Scout and achieved the rank of Eagle. His eagle project was a clothing drive for items tting the school districts dress code. The goal was to collect 250 items, he said. The drive ultimately collected 275 with many additional items which did not t Want good grades? 2013 Valedictorian: Stay awake in classPlease see page 5TCHS Class of 2013 Valedictorian James Clover TCHS Class of 2013 Salutatorian Eli WalkerDedication, 4.0 GPA goal pays for Class of 2013 salutatorianConscientious to a fault, Eli Walker usually has no problem following the dont-answer-your-phone policy at work. But when he saw who the caller was WednesdayTaylor County High Schoolhe couldnt resist answering. Hopefully, his bosses will give him a break, because the call was from high school guidance ofcials informing him he was salutatorian for this years graduating class. When I came into high school, I hoped to maintain the 4.0 grade point average I had in middle school. I never intended to be salutatorian--it just came with wanting to keep my grade point average high, Walker said. But the high grades didnt come without a price. I think of all the dinners I had by myself studying, instead of eating with my family, the nights spent staying up until 2 or 3 a.m. studyingit was stressful. But if you look at the long run, you know it will pay off. Walkers hard work and dedication is paying big returns with a full Presidential Please see page 3Perry woman with boating party of drowned manThe body of a Jacksonville man was found Tuesday in the St. Johns River, two days after he disappeared while boating with four others, one of whom is from Perry. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) ofcials, James Ricks Jr., 43, was operating the boat and on his way back to the Arlington Boat Ramp when he shut down the engine and jumped into the St. Johns River, near the mouth of the Ortega River. The boats passengers attempted to toss him a line. Ricks was unable to reach the line and never resurfaced, ofcials said. The passengers were: Charlotte Lundy, 55, of Please see page 5The 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season begins Saturday and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is once again forecasting an active season this year. For the six-month hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, NOAAs hurricane season outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted,   everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw rst-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, ooding and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm rst makes landfall. Taylor County Emergency Management Director Dustin Hinkel concurred, pointing to the damage, ood and mosquito outbreaks caused by Tropical Storm Debby last summer. That was a very weak storm and it still had an impact on our daily lives, he said. With a stronger storm, the impact will be even greater. It has been seven years since the 2005 season which saw multiple landfalls in Florida, and Hinkel warned residents of becoming complacent. It only takes one storm, he said. Local ofcials will host a mitigation workshop on Saturday, June 15, at 10 a.m at Forest Capital Hall to inform residents about how to prepare their homes to better survive a high-wind event. Were also trying to get the word out about re-entry passes for coastal residents and property owners, Hinkel. Re-entry passes allow those evacuated from the coast the ability to return to their properties after the area is declared safe but before it is opened to the general public. If you do not have a re-entry pass, call Taylor County Emergency Management at 850-8383575 for more information. According to NOAA ofcials, three climate factors that strongly control Atlantic hurricane activity are expected to come together to produce an active or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These are: atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and to develop and suppress Please see page 5

May 31-June 1, 2013 Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comLife before 24-hour news Once upon a time, not so long ago, when the clock struck 1 a.m., the entire world went to sleep. At least it seemed that way in Perry. ere was no 24-hour Walmart to shop and hang out in during the wee hours of the morning. McDonalds was around, but the golden arches, like most of the businesses in town, locked their doors and called it a night at 11 p.m. ere was no internet to browse until the sun came up. And there was no television to watch aer the 13 channels ended their broadcast day with the same rendition of e Stars Spangled Banner. Back in those days, life was nostalgically simpler unless you were an insomniac like I was. Even though I wasnt sleepy, when the clock struck 1 a.m., the only thing I could do was try to force myself to go to bed. You see, back then, the pickings were slim and next to none when it came to nding something to do while the rest of the world slept. If all you needed was someone to talk to, then you could spend the wee hours of the morning hanging around the 7-11 Store on Jeerson Street. Although the name suggested the store was open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., it was a 24-hour store. is, however, was not an option for me since I was still living under a steadfast curfew of 9 p.m. If you were hungry, you could either head into the kitchen or you could mosey over to the Howard Johnsons Restaurant on Byron Butler Parkway. Even though my grandmother worked the midnight shi at Howard Johnsons, the only feasible option for my hunger cravings was to warm leovers in the oven or on the stove. However, if you were looking for a way to entertain yourself aer the television went o, you could lie in bed and listen to the radio or count sheep until the Sandman came. ings didnt begin to change until June 1, 1980, when the Cable News Network or CNN became the worlds rst 24hour news network. For insomniacs like me, CNN was a Godsend. Even though everyone in my house and most of the people in town were fast asleep, the news anchors and reporters at CNN were up with me. My grandmother usually made me go to bed before she le for work at 11 p.m. She could count on me slipping back up aer she le, but she also knew that when the televisions broadcast day ended, I would have no choice but to climb back into bed and go to sleep. CNN changed that. When the phone rang in the middle of the night, I didnt have to wonder who was calling. It was my grandmother. Antmar, if you dont go to bed, she would yell into the phone as soon as I picked up the phone. I wouldnt respond, but somehow she knew I was on the other end listening. Dont make me have to leave my job. To keep her from coming home, I would answer, Im on my way to bed now. But, I really wasnt. e thing that I nd surprising is now that television, Walmart and McDonalds have made the rest of the world insomniacs, I dont have any problems catching a few Zs. As a matter of fact, I think Ill catch a few now. Zzzzzzzzzz. Honor your loved ones by including them in the next installment of the Taylor County Historical Societys They Were Here series. President Bettie Page invites families to submit biographical sketches and photos of their loved ones for inclusion in the book.

Scholarship to North Florida Community College and a Bright Futures academic scholarship that will propel him toward a bachelors degree. Walker also received the Fairpoint Communications scholarship. Although he has not settled on a four-year college, Walker said he plans to major in nance and seek a masters degree in health care administration. He is already outlining the speech he will deliver during graduation ceremonies Saturday morning at Dorsett Stadium. Aside from the thank yous, I am going to talk about the true meaning of success and the importance of giving back, Walker said. Among those Walker intends to thank are his family (parents Doug and Gena Walker along with older siblings Tyler, Laura and Craig) and teachers Ruth Harvey, Donna Tuttle and Kate Courtney. These teachers saw the potential in us before we even showed any, Walker said. Although academics played a strong role in Walkers four-year high school career, he still made time for extracurricular activities, serving as president of the National Honor Society and treasurer of the Student Council (12th grade). He was also in the Pride of Taylor Marching Band all four years, leading as drum major his senior year. Walker participated in the Teen Court program and volunteered last summer with the muscular dystrophy summer camp. It was a very rewarding experience and I plan to return as a volunteer this year, he said. While Walker is capping his senior year with academic successes, it didnt come without challenges. There were a lot of times when I was tired and just wanted to stop. At the beginning of the last semester, my grandmother had a stroke. We are a very close family and I missed six days of school during that time. While that doesnt sound like a lot, it was stressful just trying to keep up. But when I reached the point where I would want to give up, my parents and siblings supported me and encouraged me to keep going. His parting advice to incoming high school freshmen? Study hard. You will see that all those hours are worth it. it as a mail drop, which registered offenders are not supposed to do. Anytime a registered sex offender moves, he or she has 48 hours to register a new address with the sheriffs ofce (which is charged with keeping track of the 61 registered offenders in the county), Brown said. So his address was physically veried? Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton asked. Yes, just the day before the sign was put upbut evidently he lied, Brown said. PPD Capt. Jamie Cruse told the council he could not comment further on the case we are still investigating and there are potential charges that may be made. Councilman Don Cook said he was not unhappy with the results of the citys rst foray into posting signs notifying the public where registered sexual predators live. It ushed him out, Cook said. On Thursday, Brown said that Tinsley had registered his current address (606 Judson Drive) with the sheriffs ofce Tuesday. So we put a sign up in front of the new address in Quail Pointe Wednesday. He had recently married and is living with his wife at that address, Brown said. The program did some good. It brought to light a sexual predator who was living in a neighborhood and was not registered. If you did a search of offenders and predators, his address still came up as the Campbell Street residence. Of the nine registered sexual predators in Taylor County, Tinsley is the only offender living within the city limits. A search of the Florida Department of Law Enforcements (FDLE) registry of sexual offenders and predators showed two addresses under Tinsleys registration. The rst registration, dated May 23, 2013, shows 1519 South Campbell Street as a permanent address; the second registration, dated May 28, reects the 606 Judson Drive address as a temporary address. Tinsley, 59, was convicted in January 2009 of sexual battery/coercion by threat and sexual battery (injury not likely) in Pinellas County. The victim in the case was not a minor. The Florida Department of Corrections lists Tinsley as Charles Tensley, with known aliases Jack Bo, Charles L. Tensley, Charles Leon Tensley and Charles Leon Tinsley. The same aliases are on Tinsleys FDLE sexual offender/ predator yer. He served just over a year in the 2008 case (May 2009 to November 2010). He also has a 1986 conviction for lewd/lascivious indecent assault on a child under 16. Tinsley served seven months in prison for that offense (October 1986 to May 1987). He completed his latest prison term on July 14, 2011, and had a listed address in Clearwater. He apparently rst registered in Taylor County in August 2012.

School ends, fun begins at park By FLORRIE BURROUGHS Shady Grove columnistSports activities beginThe end of the school year signals the start of a lot of fun at the park. The playing will begin around 7 p.m. and go until just before dark. All kids are welcome but please bring your parents or a guardian. Questions: call JoAnn Wilson 850-584-8181 or Claire Hatcher 850-5848370. Post Ofce closesPost Ofce box holders were notied on May 24 in a memo from Auley Rowell that the Shady Grove Post Ofce that has been serving this community since the 1870s would be closed for good as of May 28. On May 25, we received yet another memo from the Postal Service stating the same. Not much time to change our address or make arrangements about our mail. No instructions as to how our mail will be handled, where we may get it, etc, etc. Rumors are ying everywhere but no certain information has been given. As of this morning, I have been advised by a representative of Rockys Shady Grove Store that the post ofce boxes will be placed there, possibly sometime this week. If post ofce boxes are not readily available for placement, then it could be later as the boxes will have to be ordered. Also I learned that only stamps and pre-paid envelopes will be available at Rockys. The closing comes as a great disappointment to the citizens of our community and seems that the meeting held here a few weeks ago was a waste of everyones time. We were told the Post Ofce would remain open for two hours per day. Then out of the blue, it is closed. Feelings here run from disgust to disappointment, bewilderment and just plain anger. When I visited the Post Ofce this morning to pick up the last mail I will receive there, people were standing in line. Around 10:45 when I was leaving, a man was already taking down the sign that said Shady Grove Post Ofce, Shady Grove, FL 32357, though the Post Ofce did not ofcially close until 11. Over the Memorial Holiday week-end the ag at the little Post ofce has been own at half mast. It is with much gratefulness and sadness that I reect on the brave soldiers and their families who have given so much to give us our freedom--but I couldnt help but think the ag at half mast means a little more to us on this Memorial Day. A loss of our Post ofce is a little loss of freedom for us here in Shady Grove.Yard sale items?Shady Grove Citizens Council is still looking for items for their yard sale on Aug. 3 and for the auction on Sept. 21.

Religion A-6 Perry News-Herald May 31-June 1, 2013 By SARAH HALL A Sincere Thank You.... When people universally realize that we all are united by the common bond of mortality and by our basic needs... the need to belong, to worship and to love; to be housed, nurtured and fed, and to work and play... perhaps then we will have learned to understand...what it means to love spiritually. Then there will be peace and brotherhood on earth. Our families, friends and communities will come together to share in the joy that God has prepared for us. Without this kind of sharing there will be no peace. Our sincere thanks to our planning committee, all our volunteers (individually and collectively), our husbands and wives teams who set up our tables and stayed with us to help with the clean up.
