A ninth suspect turned himself in Thursday morning on an unrelated cocaine charge. We are using any means necessary to actively enforce drug laws. Drugrelated crimes are serious offenses that often lead to more crime and are often interlinked with property crimes. We are doing our best to stem thefts and burglaries that are many times committed by drug users, Capt. Jamie Cruse said. In the one case, an ofcer discovered a cup lled with crack cocaine that had been hidden in a garbage can during a bar enforcement activity back in November. The items were processed for DNA, which led to the identity of the individual Kid tested & approved The playground at Rosehead Park opened Tuesday and has been kid tested and approved. The playground is located adjacent to the new splash pad, which has seen heavy use since its recent opening. For anyone concerned with the amount of water used at the water attraction, City Manager Bob Brown noted that some 1,800 gallons of water are utilized at the splash pad--which equates to less than $5. Sisters Katie Sellers, 7, and Ashley Sellers, 9, along with Anna Drawdy, 8, Selina Drawdy, 10, and Sammi Drawdy, 9, were among those testing out the playground Thursday.

Buckeye, TCHS STEM Club team up for hometown work program For many years, one of the stated goals of economic developers and local ofcials, when talking about creating jobs, has been to keep local children from leaving and not coming back after graduation. The countys largest employer--Buckeye Technology--and the Taylor County High School STEM Club recently joined forces in an effort to help bring a few more local youth back to their hometown, at least based on comments made by the students involved. The STEM Club--whose name stands for science, technology, engineering and math--has been participating in several projects this summer and the latest was a week-long shadowing partnership with Buckeye engineers, according to sponsor Jessica Curry. The event at Buckeye involved six incoming seniors taking part in a series of activities at Buckeye which included Please see page 3 Drug arrest sweep nets 8 Please see page3Local FWC ofcers hailed as heroes for saving 5 boatersThree Georgia men were rescued by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) ofcers Thursday, July 4, at the mouth of the Econna River and the Gulf of Mexico, ofcials announced Wednesday, July 10.

July 12-13, 2013 My grandmother never bought into the idea that good fences made good neighbors. She felt putting up a fence wasnt a neighborly thing to do under most circumstances. However, it was okay for a neighbor to put up a fence, say, if the neighbor had bad dogs. And, because it was usually a member of our household who had the bad dog, it was perfectly acceptable for neighbors who were scared of bad dogs to erect fences to protect themselves. After all, my grandmother and I were just as scared of Cujo. A neighbor could put up a fence, and she would be okay with it if they had young children who were mostly unsupervised, which meant there was a good chance the children would stray into the road. In this instance--trying to keep someone in the yard rather than out--she would be the one advising them to put up a fence. And she would understand if the fence was already there when the new neighbor moved in but took a week or so to take it down. Any longer though and the new neighbor would wonder why she was slow to speak or pretended she didnt hear them whenever they spoke. A good fence did not make a good neighbor, at least not in my grandmothers neighborhood. That all changed when Ms. Jessie Bea moved in next door with Mr. Ben, who for years had been and was until his passing, the best neighbor anyone could have. My brothers, cousins and I loved Ms. Jessie Bea because there was so much to love about her. She was old enough to be our grandmother, but she was still young at heart. Even though she knew better (and so did we), she went along with and even covered up a lot of our misdeeds. And, she could do something that no one else we knew could: get under our grandmothers skin. My grandmother actually liked Ms. Jessie Bea, but she couldnt stand how Ms. Jessie Bea provoked us to misbehave. My grandmother told us that drinking Remember when...By ANTHONY L.

program overviews, safety discussions, plant tours, project implementation scenarios and AutoCAD training, as well as seeing what what an average day is like for engineers in the workplace. We are very thankful that Buckeye gave us this opportunity, Curry said Wednesday morning during a presentation by the students to school district ofcials and Buckeye management. We feel like the students have worked as engineers for a week. Students who participated included Justin Calhoun, Daniel Dudley, Evan Grambling, Eric Morgan, Grant Parker and Dylan Strickland. All six expressed a desire to pursue an engineering career in one eld or another with several calling their time at Buckeye an eye-opening experience. Id like to thank everyone who helped make this possible, Strickland said. It showed me what I wanted to do is really what I want to do. I never thought about coming back to Perry to work, but now Id like to come back and work, Morgan said. I do think we have changed some lives and have made a big impact on some young people, Curry said. Were really excited about this. Buckeye Plant Technology Manager Bob Cate said he hopes the partnership helps inform local students about opportunities at Buckeye for future employment. During the presentation, several people from both Buckeye and the school district emphasized promoting the importance of math and science skills to students. We appreciate the partnership that seems to be growing between Buckeye and Taylor County High School, Superintendent Paul Dyal said. This will be one of the better things to promote our STEM program. We want to have our talented students live in Taylor County, he added. We want them to have professional level jobs here in Taylor County.A-3 Perry News-Herald July 12-13, 2013 around her feet, Ms. Jessie Bea would sit in a rocking chair on her porch and down a pint of whiskey. Dont listen to Doris, shed tell us then laugh. A drink or two a day will keep the doctor away. Look at me. Whats wrong with me? We used to sit on the porch with Ms. Jessie Bea and eat cornstarch (and not the cooking variety) by the spoonfuls. The next time I hear about yall sitting over there eating cornstarch with Jessie Bea your behinds belong to me, my grandmother would admonish. And dont come to me crying sick when that cornstarch makes your blood dry up. When we asked Ms. Jessie Bea if that was true, she answered, I aint never got sick and I been eating it all my life. Then she handed her cup of whiskey to us. Take a few shots of this and you aint got to worry about no blood drying up. My grandmother wasnt pleased. afternoon when she and Ms. Jessie Bea almost tied up. We had done something our grandmother told us not to do and she pulled out the belt. Get in a line, she yelled then commenced to whipping behinds. Ms. Jessie Bea was sitting in her rocking chair, sipping from her cup. She watched as my grandmother whipped for a minute. She watched for two minutes. But she could not sit through three. Ms. Jessie Bea jumped off her porch and shouted, If you hit any one of em again Doris, you gonna have to hit me. Then come on over here and get in line, my grandmother yelled back and continued down the line. Mr. Ben had to restrain Ms. Jessie Bea. Let me go, Ben! I wanna get in line, she hollered then turned to us. What yall standing there for? Run over here and get behind me. Although Ms. Jessie Bea promised she would protect us from our grandmother, we knew better than to move. A few months later, Ms. Jessie Bea left. I say left because I never knew where she went. And from what I can recall, all anyone ever said was she left. My grandmother was right. Maybe, in this instance, a good fence would have made Ms. Jessie Bea a good neighbor. If nothing else, it may have kept her in the yard and stopped her from leaving.

A-4 Perry News-Herald July 12-13, 2013 Living Another Shiver-Scott Production Class of holds 40th reunion, without incidentContributed by LEE SHIVER Steinhatchee Landing Resort was the site for the Taylor County High School (TCHS) Class of 1973s reunion on Saturday, June 22. The event was attended by almost 50 class members, along with their spouses, signicant others, and parole ofcers who expressed amazement at the turnout and collective energy 40 years after the graduation of what is arguably one of TCHSs most accomplished and controversial classes. Many classmates met at Fiddlers Restaurant in Steinhatchee earlier in the evening to enjoy the local cuisine and bemoan the organizers second-guessed decision to eschew name tags in favor of awkward but heartfelt queries, handshakes and bear hugs. When the Cannons nally showed up, everyone knew a good time was on. This years reunion, organized by Shiver-Scott Productions in association with Jim Deal Enterprises, featured a presentation of the school lm produced by Shiver-Scott Productions in 1971-72. The movie, which predated the video yearbook, featured scenes, events, remembrances and school personalities from their junior year that elicited a cacophony of hoots, hollers, recognitions, laughter and ribald commentary from various classmates. Gene Scott, who provided an unabashed narrative during the movie, startled no one when he announced, Many people have died and many more people will die. Records at the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce indicate that no arrests were made at this years reunion, Arguably one of Taylor County High Schools most accomplished and controversial classes, the Class of 1973 gathered at Steinhatchee Landing for a reunion which extended well into the night. Please see page 5 By FLORRIE BURROUGHS I hope all of you had a safe and happy Fourth of July.

A-5 Perry News-Herald July 12-13, 2013 vows to meet againClass to celebrate 60th bdays nexta fact that pleased class ofcers whose memories of previous celebrations helped event organizers plan accordingly. Popular local party and dance band Alibi provided a rocking s charged musical performance that at least one longtime Steinhatchee Landing Resort event observer described as a true testament to the power of music, raw talent and good time energy. In the aftermath, Retta (OQuinn) Williams opined, I cant remember the names of any of the songs, but we knew them all and they had a good beat and you could dance to them. Classmate Andy Tate from Memphis joined Alibi on stage and played lead guitar on two Doobie Brothers hits as classmates roared their approval and snapped photos of one of the Class of s most popular and beloved members. Close friend Neal Schrenk noted, Andy keeps us young and connected to our rock-and-roll roots. Hes the nicest guy among us and the women are still crazy about him. After Eddie Borklands impressive vocal performance, Lee Shiver was able to momentarily calm the frenetic assembly by asking his classmates to honor Jim Deals wife Myong for her generous behind-the-scenes contributions to the nights festivities by making her an honorary class member. The vote by acclamation was swift and unanimous. Once Kenny Jackson showed up, the dance oor became crowded as about a dozen of the fairest and hottest women in the class ignored their childrens and childrens childrens safety admonitions and demonstrated that they could still move it like it was 1973. A gawking, but admiring David Taylor remarked, Im truly impressed. I just hope theyre able to get out of bed in the morning. The inimitable, forever young John R. Jackson arrived early, as usual, and once again brought along the Class of ag that was waived throughout the night on the dance oor and in the street as classmates arrived. As dawn approached at last and morning church bells echoed across Steinhatchee, the party broke up, but not before the Class of agreed to meet here again in two years to celebrate many of their 60th birthdays.

Captain nominates 3 ofcers for lifesaving award 25 miles away. McDonald and Yates were en route to water patrol with a 22-foot boat. Lee, the Taylor County supervisor, was preparing for both a holiday weekend on the water and managing boating safety enforcement efforts for the opening week of scallop season. Albritton headed to the Econna River through rough 2-to-3-foot seas in his small, open boat. McDonald and Yates launched their vessel at the Econna River boat ramp in search of the three men. Lee coordinated communication efforts with the men from the capsized vessel and the ofcers involved in the rescue. McDonald and Yates arrived rst in the area and began searching the rough seas. They quickly located Hall in the water, clinging to a marker, and Bynum and Powers with the capsized vessel. The three were rescued with minor injuries. Another vessel had attempted to rescue the Georgia men, but it also ran into trouble. Alan Ray Hendricks, 51, from Crawfordville, and his passenger aboard a 15-foot open boat, began taking on water when their engine broke down. Albritton located Hendricks vessel near the other capsized boat, and these two boaters were also rescued and towed back to the boat ramp. Due to the quick action and teamwork of Lt. Lee and ofcers Albritton, McDonald and Yates, I rmly believe that three lives were saved that day, said FWC Capt. Marty Redmond. He has nominated the three ofcers for the FWC lifesaving award.
