A-12 News Forum TAYLOR COUNTYCONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES Votes expected next weekCongressional reps take opposing stand on action in SyriaWith the U.S. Congress set to vote on approving military action in Syria next week in response to allegations that the countrys regime used chemical weapons in its two-year civil war, Taylor Countys representatives appear to be split two-to-one against. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio is the only one to have voted on the matter to date, voting against a resolution authorizing U.S. military action, which passed 10 to 7 in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee vote. The resolution, which is expected to go before the full Senate next week, authorizes President Barack Obama to use the U.S. military in a limited and tailored manner against legitimate military targets in Syria, only to: (1) respond to the use of weapons of mass destruction by the Syrian government in the conict in Syria; (2) deter Syrias use of such weapons in order to protect the national security interests of the United States and to protect our allies and partners against the use of such weapons; and (3) degrade Syrias capacity to use such weapons in the future. An estimated 100,000 people have been killed in the conict over the past two years, with 1,000 killed--mostly civilians--in the Aug. 21 chemical attack in the suburbs of Damascus. The resolution states there is clear and compelling evidence that Syrian leader Bashar al-Assads regime was directly involved in the attack. The use of chemical weapons is against the Geneva Conventions outlining the rules of war. The Senate resolution also specically states it does not authorize the use of ground troops in Syria and it only authorizes military action for up to 60 days, with an option for the president to extend the operation for an additional 30 days due to extraordinary circumstances and for ongoing and impending military operations against Syria.

The blaze claimed the three-story Masonic building that housed the Masonic Lodge, Temple Theater and numerous business ofces. The following account of the re was reported in the Feb. 8, 1945 Taylor County News: Spectacular Fire Destroyed the Masonic building here Friday Perry Fire Equipment and that from Army Air Field ght ames in vain The three-story Masonic building here, occupied by the Temple Theater, Dr. G. H. Warren, Dr. Wilson T. Hendry, the Welfare Board, and the various fraternal groups of Perry, was destroyed by re last Friday morning. A heating stove exploded on the second oor and hot stovepipe fell the entire length of the hall on that oor, causing the most destructive re in Perrys history. Somewhat less than half a million gallons of water were pumped into the burning building, but due to the headway the re had gained and the inammable nature of the interior, four re trucks, throwing from ve to seven streams of water into the blazing second oor could make no headway against the roaring ames. The alarm sounded shortly after nine oclock Friday morning, and the 500-gallon pumper of the Perry Fire Department was rushed to the northwest corner of the square. A second call brought the seven hundred and fty gallon pumper to the corner of Main and Washington streets. Three lines of hose were thrown from each, the nozzles manned by volunteers. A call for help to the Army Air Field brought a ve hundred gallon pumper to the post ofce corner and a tank with a pump which located on Washington Street at the rear of the old bank building. The combined efforts of all those great pumps could make no visible effect in the progress of the great blaze, though without question they saved the bank building now owned by the county and occupied by the Red Cross and the county health department. At 10:30 the great timbers supporting the third oor of the Masonic building burned in two, the oors collapsed and the north, east and west walls, a great expanse of brick, swayed for a moment and then sagged straight down in a great crash. An average of about fteen feet of the wall still stands. The re was practically over by noon, but the local re engines remained at the scene the rest of the day to pump more water on the scattered blazes inside A-2 Perry News-Herald September 6-7, 2013 Looking Back September 6-7, 2013 THE PERRY NEWS-HERALD September 7, 1978 If youre going to retire, make sure you do it while youre at the top of your game. I did. In 1980, after winning the National 4-H Gardening competition in Chicago, I put my garden hoe in the shed, took off my gardening shoes and then I washed the potting soil and dirt off of my hands. I was done with gardening. However, my early retirement didnt leave Taylor Countys 4-H gardening program in the dust because my fellow 4-Hers, Charles Ellis and Clay Bethea, were waiting to take the reigns. The 4-H project that led to Taylor County 4-Hers three-peating as the National 4-H Gardening competition winner was the Taylor County Community Garden, which was located where the health department is next to the old hospital. I was trying to come up with a 4-H gardening project in order to compete at the state competition held each year at the University of Florida in Gainesville. I spoke with my 4-H leaders, Leola Glenn, Mildred Alexander and Mary Williams, who headed the Jerkins Heights 4-H Club. Mrs. Leola suggested I speak with Mr. Henry Davis, the county extension agent, and Carol Mott, who was the countys 4-H agent. Mr. Davis and Mrs. Mott suggested that I organize and manage a community garden. I may have been the organizer and chairman of the community garden, but Mr. Davis and Mrs. Mott were the driving forces behind my effort. the garden. There had been a similar project at the site next to the old hospital, so Mr. Davis and Mrs. Mott helped me to secure the location. They then called in horticulture and gardening experts from Florida A & M University and the University of Florida to advise me on how to organize and manage a community garden. After several meetings with the universities experts, Mr. Davis, Mrs. Mott and Mrs. Leola helped me recruit local businesses as sponsors for the project. Earl Williams, a manager at Buckeye, came aboard as my community leader. His role was primarily to teach me how to manage a community project involving a diverse group of families and gardeners. Mr. Davis and Mrs. Mott also helped me to recruit other 4-Hers and 4-H clubs to assist in the project. Charles Koski Ellis was a member of the Jerkins Heights 4-H club, and he and I were demonstration partners and members of the horticulture judging team. Koski was my right-hand man on the project. Clay Bethea, and his brother Andy and sister Marilyn, were also involved in the project. Clay became the co-chair of the community garden and head of the 4-H County Council plot, which grew fresh vegetables and donated them to Doctors Memorial Hospital. Although my grandfather had spring and fall gardens and made me and my brothers work daily in the gardens, there was still a lot that I had to learn. Mr. Davis taught me how to take soil samples at the beginning of the project. He also helped me to plow Mrs. Mott helped me recruit local gardeners and conduct organizational meetings for the gardeners. She also show me how to set up records for each of the nearly 30 families who purchased plots at the garden. Mrs. Leola convinced other members of the Jerkins Heights 4-H Club to be part of the project. She also drove me to and from the garden site each day, helped plant seeds, pull weeds and harvest the vegetables we grew. Part of my gardening project was to plant a 4-H Remember when...By ANTHONY L.

A-3 Perry News-Herald September 6-7, 2013 taken by the U.N. chemical weapons inspection team sent to Syria in an attempt to determine who was behind the attack. The U.N. Security Council is currently deadlocked over the issue, with Russia opposing action in the war torn country. Citing the chemical attack, Floridas other Senator, Bill Nelson, has expressed his support for military intervention in Syria. The senators website states: There should be moral outrage over the use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians in Syria. At this point, Sen. Nelson believes its appropriate to take military action with NATO and our regional allies. Inaction would only lead to greater suffering and instability in the region and would further embolden Assad. U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland said this week percent of the some 300 people who have contacted his ofce about the Syrian issue are against involvement. When making decisions that impact global security and military readiness, I have a solemn obligation to be purposeful in my approach and attentive to the concerns of the people I represent, Southerland said. After gathering input from my constituents, I take great comfort in knowing they overwhelmingly agree with my opposition to a conict in Syria that lacks any clear objective or apparent American security interest. The U.S. House is also expected to take the issue to a vote next week. Proper process dictates that I receive a classied brieng and study the evidence before rendering my nal decision, but its highly unlikely that Ill be compelled to believe any differently about this mission next week, Southerland said. The Taylor County Commission will hold a pair of public hearings over the next two weeks to nalize its 2013-14 budget. The hearings will be held Tuesday, Sept. 10, and Monday, Sept. 16, at 6 p.m. at the Courthouse Annex on Green Street. The commission balanced its budget and approved its proposed property tax millage rates, keeping the levels the same as the current years rates in July. At the rst hearing, the board will approve its tentative budget and millage rates and, at the second, it will approve the nal versions. As for the millage rates, state law prohibits the commission from raising them above the proposed rate. The commission held three workshops in July to discuss the budget, beginning the process with a $700,000 general fund decit, most of which was due to the Florida Legislature changing the countys required contributions to the Florida Retirement System for its employees. That move alone is expected to cost the county, including the constitutional ofcers, around $500,000 this coming scal year, which begins Oct. 1. Also included in the budget for next year is the additional $150,000 in annual emergency medical services subsidies for Doctors Memorial Hospital the commission rst approved last fall (after the 2012-13 budget was nalized) to continue funding a full-time ambulance in Steinhatchee. Not included in the budget, however, are raises for employees. Last year, the commission voted to give employees their rst raise in ve years. The commission ultimately balanced the budget by requesting additional cuts from the constitutional ofcers and then offsetting the rest by utilizing cash carry forward funds from the previous year to help make up the difference. The current property tax millage rates are 7.0113 mills in the general fund and 1.1215 mills in the MSTU fund (which is funded through a tax on property in the unincorporated area of the county for services duplicated by the City of Perry such as re protection). Due to property value decreases, general fund tax revenues are expected to drop $36,000 compared to the current year, while MSTU fund revenues are projected to fall $5,000. Shown at the award presentation are: (left to right) Pam Langford; Sheila Salyer; Everett Yarbrough; Congressman Steve Southerland II; Barbara Borderieux; Nanette Schimpf; Lisa Bretz; Amber Tynan and Evelyn Cunningham. Congressman Steve Southerland was presented with the Summer 2013 Champion of Seniors Award by The Grange, a national, nonpartisan grassroots organization that advocates on behalf of Americas rural seniors, for his outstanding leadership on behalf of seniors. Criteria for the award included: leadership in Congress to protect Medicare, which is critical to millions of American seniors and their families. the-board cuts made by un-elected boards. affordable prescription medicines for seniors through the Medicare Part D program and opposing any efforts to implement price controls or similar measures that would lead to increases in premiums for seniors. continued commitment to protect the doctor/patient relationship for seniors and opposing any efforts that might weaken it in any way. of health care options for seniors so that they may choose the best plan for themselves and their families. constituents with individual issues before government agencies so that they receive the benets and services they have earned. services and necessary funding for senior programs in the Representatives district. Southerland received the award for his unwavering efforts to protect the health benets and security of Floridas seniors and citizens with disabilities, presenters said. He was presented the award during a ceremony at the Tallahassee senior center, along with Barbara Borderieux, president of The Florida Grange; Pam Langford, president of Sheila Salyer, director of Tallahassee Senior Services; of the Westminster Oaks Conservative Club; Nanette Schimpf, vice president of Moore Communications Group and member of the Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; Lisa Bretz, executive director of the Area Agency on Aging for North Florida; Amber Tynan, director, Development and Care Services, Inc.; and citizen. Southerland has exhibited outstanding leadership in Congress to protect Medicare and ensure access to affordable prescription medicines and health care choices for seniors. He has denitely earned this award and deserves our thanks, said Grace Boatright, legislative director for The National Grange.

Mr. Davis and the university experts were essential to this part of the project. The community garden started during the early spring, and by the time summer rolled in, I had completed my 4-H gardening record book which chronicled my work in the community garden and other 4-H projects. I competed in the state 4-H competition at UF and was selected as the state winner. In November of that same year, I was chosen as the national winner in Chicago. The next year, Koski competed in the state 4-H gardening competition and won. A few months later, he was chosen as the national winner in Chicago. Clay was chairman of the community garden during its second year. He competed in the state 4-H gardening competition the year after Koski and won. He went on to win in the national competition later that year. All three of us received college scholarships for winning the national competition. I dont know whether or not Clay continued gardening after he contributed to Taylor Countys three-peat, but Koski, like myself, retired from gardening after his win. Over the years, Ive been invited back into the garden a few times, but I didnt accept any of the invitations. Ive seen enough retired champions enter the ring again after retirement to know that you cant always come back and pick up where you left off. Mother nature and time have seen to that.

A-4 Perry News-Herald September 6-7, 2013 Living Harris earns Outstanding Youth award from Workforce Barbara Hines was welcomed to Perry on Tuesday by the communitys Master Gardeners and others who wanted to learn more about The Native American Use of Plants. A registered professional archaeologist with the Florida Public Archaeology Network, Hines showcased many native plants familiar to area residents while explaining the uses that Native Americans had for these plants on a daily basis. About 20 gathered for the program at Forest Capital Hall which was presented at no charge to the public. Programs on the states history are presented throughout the state by the archaeology network.Archaeobotany What was this plant used for? Through a partnership with organizations in its six-county region, North Florida Workforce placed 66 youth in 61 worksites spread across Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee and Taylor counties as part of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Summer Youth Work Experience Program. In addition to learning valuable on-the-job skills, youth also engaged in life skills workshops throughout the summer. These invaluable lessons will be carried by the youth as they progress, not only through the employment world, but through life. Over the summer, all 66 youth were certied in CPR, taught how to use an Automated External Debrillator, and received OSHA/MSHA credentials, said Diane Head, deputy director for Workforce. Each summer, one youth from each county is selected to receive an Outstanding Youth award for hard work and perseverance. A number of factors are involved in the selection process, Head explained, including timeliness, work readiness and professionalism. Youth must be nominated for the award by their worksite supervisor, and this year, each youth was required to write an essay summarizing their experiences. The Outstanding Youth award for Taylor County went to Dashalla Harris who was placed at the Taylor County Extension (IFAS) Ofce. She and the other ve award winners from surrounding counties were awarded laptop computers. The Summer Youth Work Experience Program could not have been successful without the diligence of staff members Kris Kuhl (WIA Youth Coordinator), Rachel Brinson (WIA Youth Career Consultant), and Katrina Armstead (WIA Youth Assistant), Head said. Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said that we cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future. That is the objective of this summer program which serves the communities in our North Florida region, Head said. For more information on any programs, please visit www.NFworkforce,org.

A-5 Perry News-Herald September 6-7, 2013the remaining portion of the walls. Nothing was saved from the building except the moving picture equipment that was housed in a reproof room at the front of the building on the ground oor. Debris amed up in this location at least twice after the re was thought to be extinguished. The second oor of the building was heated by a circulator placed in the hall, the hall having a partition near the stairs at the front of the building. Two pipes from the heater ran the full length of the hall. About seven-thirty Friday morning the janitor of the second oor arrived at the building and started the heater, and then began his work of cleaning the ofces. While at work in one of the rooms of the welfare ofce at the north end of the building he heard a noise. Opening the door, he saw the full length of the hall lled with ame and smoke. His exit by the front was closed and he was rescued by the re department placing a ladder against one of the north windows. Others outside the building saw the smoke and ames at the windows along the west side and turned in calls for the re department. The Masonic building was erected in 1923 and the builders used only the nest of heartwoods for the interior construction, this wood being covered with three coats of clear varnish. The vapors from the heated varnish near the exploded stove and the hot lengths of pipe were quickly ignited and the rich wood was instantly burning at a terric rate. The janitor was the only person in the building when the re started. Persons from the street and from the re department tried to enter the second oor, but were instantly driven back by the dense smoke and rush of ames. Loss of the building and contents was estimated at between $125,000 and $150,000. Amounts of insurance have not been made public. Temple Theater to be back in action George E. Porter, Kay Porter and others of the personnel in charge of the operation of the Temple Theater, are busy on plans involving the securing of some equipment, the reconstruction of some, and securing a location in which they may soon open the theater again. The projectors, sound equipment and most other items were saved with slight damage when re destroyed the Masonic building last Friday. The equipment was protected by the reproof room constructed several years ago. George Porter stated since the re that their chief difculty would be in nding seats for a new theater, but said he felt sure that in a few weeks they would again be in operation. During this week Perry movie fans have ocked to Foley by car and bus, where Mr. Porter has welcomed his friends from Perry. The series of pictures booked for Perry have been transferred to the program at Foley, and this will continue until the Temple is re-established in Perry. The rst arrangement for a theater here will be temporary, stated Mr. Porter, since the Masonic building will be reconstructed, with provision for a modern theater on the ground oor. Ofce Locations changed by re New locations for those who had ofces on the second oor of the Masonic building have presented a problem since the re last week. Practically all ofce space here was occupied before the re destroyed the largest single group of ofces in Perry. Dr. G. H. Warren transferred to the Blair building and will occupy the ofces of Dr. J. L. Weeks. Dr. Wilson T. Hendry will be located on the second oor of the Peacock building, as soon as changes can be made in room rearrangements there. The series of ofces of the Welfare Board, which occupied the major portion of the second oor at the Masonic building will be located on the west side of the second oor above the Bloodworth drug store. Masons move to re-build their building destroyed last Friday Plans provide for only two oors now, with third to be added Perry Lodge No. 123 Free and Accepted Masons is one of the best directed fraternal organizations anywhere, and it is a matter of civil pride here that the Masons began plans for reconstruction of their ne building before the re last Friday had been fully subdued. The regular meeting of the Lodge was held Monday night in the second oor of the ofce of the Florida Power & Light Company, and the members discussed ways and means, with plans and then voted to reconstruct the building as soon as possible and the matter was turned over to the building committee which happens to be a group of energetic and determined Perry citizens. The Lodge has sufcient money in the bank, with the proceeds from their insurance to rebuild without the necessity of going into debt, it was said this week by members of the Lodge. The building committee is at work upon plans for a two-story building to replace the burned building, with the xed idea that after the war the third story will be added. The ground oor of the burned building had been occupied by the Temple Theater since the building was erected. The second oor has been occupied by professional men and the Welfare Board here and the third oor, consisting of a lodge and a banquet room, was used for meetings of fraternal groups only. The building contemplated now by the building committee of the Lodge will be as nearly reproof as it is possible to construct. It is assumed that the rst oor will again be devoted to the theater, and the lodge rooms will occupy the second oor. When materials and labor are more plentiful, after the war, the third oor will be restored and second oor rearranged, much after the plan of the building destroyed last Friday. Members of the building committee state that they have sufcient labor now ready, and sufcient materials located that they will start work as soon as the adjustment of losses is made by inspectors of the re insurance companies. One member of the committee said: As soon as we get the insurance straightened out you may look for the brick to begin to y. in the Miss Wild Waters pageant held at Silver Springs.

A-6 Perry News-Herald September 6-7, 2013 Religion Youre welcome at church this Sunday, but make sure you go back on Sept. 15 First Presbyterian Church would be delighted to ll its sanctuary, Sunday after Sunday. In fact, Pastor Larry Neal is giving friends and neighbors, newcomers and interested onlookers advance notice to mark Sept. 15 on their calendars and join the congregation for worship. This is a national, non-denominational emphasis on the importance of church, he said. We got involved after a summer recess of many of our church activities. As we were getting all our programs going for the new school year, we wanted to participate in this emphasis of going back to church. So we hope people in this community will consider this a cordial invitation to come and worship with us on Sunday, Sept. 15. Actually, they are invited for this Sunday, Sept. 8, and every Sunday...as well as the 15th. Worship begins at 11 a.m.; the church is located at 310 Plantation Road. If you want to come early for Sunday School, that would be great--well nd a class for you, said Neal. Sunday School begins at 9:45 with classes for all ages, as well as a nursery. A potluck luncheon will follow the worship service. If youre looking for a church home, or havent even considered it, please set aside Sept. 15 to go Back To Church, he added. First Presbyterian will welcome you this Sunday, on the 15th and every Sunday, he said. Westside Baptist will show you...How big was Noahs Ark? So, how big was Noahs ark? The Bible says, And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.-Genesis 6:15. Westside Baptist Church would like to invite you to come by the church to see how big the ark was and perhaps learn some interesting facts about the ark. The size of the ark will be staked out with yellow ribbon. Dont forget to check out how tall it was. (Hint: Look up into the pine trees for a yellow ribbon.) The exhibit will be up for two more weeks. Westside is located approximately two miles out Highway 98 West.
