A-13 News Forum Dream Big City celebrates one-year anniversary of downtown revitalization launch By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Staff writer A splash pad where youngsters of all ages could escape for summer fun. A three-story grand pavilion that welcomed visitors to Perrys historic downtown and sheltered farmers and backyard gardeners alike. A dog park where canine kids could run and play safely guarded by a chain link fence. A sprawling lake stocked with sh and surrounded by shaded walkways. This might have sounded like a pipedream when the Perry City Council rst unveiled its plans for downtown revitalization, but today this is the reality taking shape day-by-day. This week marked the one-year anniversary of the councils adoption of the Downtown Revitalization Plan. Many strides have been made in the ensuing 12 months and greater accomplishments are looming. On Tuesday, City Manager Bob Brown shared a litany of projects that have been checked off the plans list: We have completed the Grand Pavilion, splash pad and playground area of Rosehead Park, acquired property for expanding the park and received a $335,000 grant for the lake construction. We have also submitted required construction plans for the lake to various permitting agencies, hired an architect and received approved designs for the downtown canopies project. We are about ready to submit grant proposals for that project. We are nearing completion of a dog park. We have completed sidewalk Council eyes partial closure of Washington Street Please see page 3 Curtis hired as new city attorneyLess than a month after the abrupt resignation of City Attorney Mike Smith, the Perry City Council hired his replacement Tuesday night from a eld of four applicants. Taylor County native Donald Ray Curtis III was council members rst choice for the job and City Manager Bob Brown was able to hammer out an employment agreement during Tuesdays proceedings. After Curtis and Brown returned to the council room following their off-site meeting, Mayor Daryll Gunter Please see page 3 City to dissolve Code The Perry City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday to move forward with dissolving its Code Enforcement Board and appointing a special magistrate to assume the boards duties, which include ruling on city code violations. Mayor Daryll Gunter brought the issue to the councils attention, noting that the county commission had taken similar action years ago and it has saved them a lot of problems, headaches and backlash. He said, It helps get politics out of the (process)and as far as people being mad at us because they are being cited for having to mow their grassit seems to help that a lot as well. Gunter added, The complaints Ive been getting are related to (decisions/issues) where there is sometimes a lack of knowledge of the law. With this person (a special magistrate) we know they would know the law. Members of the current Code Enforcement Board serve in three capacities: as the citys Planning/ Zoning council, Board of Adjustment and Code Enforcement Board. The other two functions would remain. The code enforcement part would go away and a lawyer would be doing it in a semi-judicial capacity, Gunter said. Four of the ve-member council agreed with Gunters suggestion with Councilman Mike Deming making a motion to have staff begin working toward a transition to a special magistrate system. Councilwoman Venita Woodfaulk offered a second and the motion passed 4-1 with Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton voting against the move. Hampton did not make any comments as to why she voted against the measure. Past caseloads for the Code Enforcement Board have included violations ranging from overgrown lots to possession of synthetic marijuana. Under the special magistrate system, a council-hired attorney would act as judge with City Attorney Ray Curtis presenting the cases. Steinhatchee school gets new name, principalJulie Philmon Hurst is the new principal of Steinhatchee Elementary School, completing a summer of transition in which the Taylor County School District hired three new principals.

August 16-17, 2013 This was my back-to-school to-do list when I was going to the seventh grade. Coordinate and lay out my new school shirts, pants and shoes for at least a week. Gather my pencils, paper and notebooks then place them by the front door. Put new batteries in the battery-powered alarm clock and check to make sure my electric alarm clock was still functioning properly. Then put on a new tough skin because school could make or break your entire school year. This is my back-to-school to-do list now that I teach 7th, 8th and 9th grades. Purchase my new school uniforms then lay out a weeks wardrobe. of school. Gather my pens and laptop and place them by the front door. Put new batteries in the battery-powered alarm clock and check to make sure my electric alarm clock is still functioning properly. Then put on a new tough skin. It seems that my back-to-school list has changed very little between my years as a student and teacher. The most important of these to-do tasks, then and now, is ensuring that I wake up on time in order to get to school on time. After 17 years as a and three years as an instructor, I still trying to beat the morning school bell. I am fully to blame for my inability to learn what most students have learned by the third grade: if youre not in class, seated, and ready to begin the days lesson, then youre late. I wish that there was someone other than myself whom I could blame, but I cant. My mother and grandmother spent 13 years trying to school me on the importance of getting up and out of the house on time, but to little or no avail. My mother spent most mornings yelling my name to get me out of bed, out of the bathroom, back out the bed, out of the kitchen, then out the front door. On most days, I managed to get to the bus stop before the bus pulled off, but three or four the bus down the road. If it wasnt for my brothers begging the bus driver, Mrs. Young, to stop and wait for me, I would have walked to school more days than I rode the bus. Some mornings, my mother would be so aggravated with my inability to get up and moving that she would turn the task of getting me up and ready for school over to my grandmother. This usually infuriated my grandmother, whose motto was, Ill call your name to wake you up once or twice, but after that, Ill get you up by any means necessary. Antmar, my grandmother would yell from the kitchen, where she was preparing breakfast. Get up! My grandmother demanded a response anytime she said something to us, which meant we were rarely able to claim she didnt tell us something. So, in the mornings when she yelled out my name, I knew I had to respond even if it meant talking in my sleep. Im up, I would answer from somewhere in Dreamland. I dont hear footsteps in there, she would call out. Im up though, Id respond. Thirty seconds later, she would try again to wake me up, but that time it was with a belt, which is why I needed to put on a new tough skin at the beginning of every school year. Today, my grandmother isnt here to wake me up when I disregard the alarm clock. But, I still need to put on my tough skin at the beginning of each school year to greet the students who are waiting impatiently outside my door 20 minutes before the school bell rings. Last year, when I asked one of the students why he was always there so early, he responded, My mother makes me get up and leave when she leaves because I have trouble waking up on my own even with an alarm clock. I smiled and said, Ask your mom if she has an extra room shed like to rent. Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comReady for school?

He noted that while this has been going on, we have also completed the re-use pipeline to Buckeye, paved Shady Oaks Drive, repainted all the re hydrants in the city, replaced all city street signs and are nearing completion of the Loughridge Pavilion. We have also received a $5.5 million grant/loan for a new sewer plant and funding from the state for water plant improvement studies. Moving forward, the council is considering a proposal to close a portion of Washington Street that would be encompassed by the new lake. The option would be to close Washington between Ellis Street and Buckhalter Way to allow the park to continue uninterrupted from Jefferson Street to Center, Brown said. Council members agreed to the concept by consensus and will hold a public hearing on the issue at their rst meeting in September, slated Thursday, Sept. 12, due to budget hearing schedules. invited Curtis to take a seat at the front table with other city administrators. Youre with us now, Gunter said. Three of the four applicants were on hand for the meeting as well as members of the local Bar. As council members began their discussions for lling the position, Conrad Bishop (who serves as attorney for the county commission) urged them to give preference to those who live and work in Taylor County. Local attorney Cline Moore echoed Bishops comments noting that they are all good candidates, but I encourage you to give preference to a local attorney when possible. Other applicants for the position included Sally Roberts (formerly of Steinhatchee), Leenette McMillan-Fredricksson of Mayo and Christine Thurman of Tallahassee. Councilman Don Cook said he preferred not to be involved in the interview process; Gunter then asked the pleasure of the board ranking their top two candidates. Curtis was the unanimous top choice and Gunter asked him and Brown to step outside to negotiate a compensation agreement. If they cant reach an agreement, well move on to our next choice (which was McMillan-Fredricksson), Gunter said. A short time later, Brown and Curtis returned with a proposal that the council passed unanimously calling for a $12,000 retainer and an hourly fee of $100 for work outside the scope of regular duties. (The previous attorney was paid $130/hour). This includes attendance at all of the meetings, Brown noted.

It was a tumultuous summer for the school, which not only received the districts rst F since 1999, but also lost grades six through eight after the school board voted in June to convert it to a K-5 facility and transfer its middle school students to Taylor County Middle School in Perry. I think we have a great team of teachers and a great staff, Hurst said. Were focusing on the new Common Core standards so we can prepare the students for the next year. This area is a closeknit group and the school gets a lot of community support, she said, adding that her father was from Steinhatchee.

During its centennial celebration, the homes board of trustees laid the groundwork to expand its services and help more children. To be built on approximately 300 acres donated for the purpose, the Madison Youth Ranch is the embodiment of that mission and will ultimately serve more than 100 children as an extension the primary campus in Enterprise. Madison Youth Ranch Director of Administrative Services Ruth Moore, who along with her husband will run the facility once it opens, visited the Perry Rotary Club this week with the Rev. James Taylor, pastor of First United Methodist Church of Perry, to talk about the ranchs mission as well as a local campaign to raise funds for the construction of the facilitys chapel. Moore told members that their goal is to have two residential homes nished and up to 20 children in place by the start of the 2014-15 school year. According to Taylor, the 85 Methodist churches in Floridas Northwest District pledged to raise the funds to construct the ranchs chapel and the Perry church has set a fund-raising goal of $20,000 to help the effort. The chapel will be the center of spiritual life at the ranch, Taylor said. We looked at our membership and wanted a goal that would stretch us but was still attainable. The church began its campaign with a pledge drive from among its members and continues this Saturday, Aug. 17, with a Ride to the Ranch motorcycle run from First United Methodist Church of Perry to the ranch in Madison County and back.
