Harvest Food Bank ($4,500) County, DMH to discuss new lease agreementWith the lease agreement between the county and Doctors Memorial Hospital (DMH) set to expire in November, the Taylor County Commission and the DMH Board of Directors began discussing a modied lease Tuesday night, but a divided commission voted to table further talks until its workshop next week. The abbreviated talks focused mostly on a proposed addition to the lease agreement, which would give DMH the authority to partner or participate with a regional health care system, but the language appeared to create confusion among the commission. If DMH enters into a partnership, members of the DMH partnership may be appointed at the discretion of the partnership organization, the addendum states. The chairman of the DMH Board of Directors must in all cases be a resident of Taylor County appointed by the board of county commissioners. At the meeting, DMH Board Chairman Ken Arnold said, If the (DMH) board enters into a partnership, the partner will Holton les ethics charge against city councilmanFollowing through on action she outlined at last Thursdays Perry City Council meeting, Code Enforcement Board member Tonya Holton has led an ethics complaint against Councilman Mike Deming alleging he misused his public position by parking his vehicle on a city sidewalk.

The current DMH board consists of seven members, ve appointed by the commission and two by the city council. Its bylaws allow for a board of ve to 11 members. Tuesdays talk began with Commission Chairperson Pam Feagle asking to table the discussion until the commissions workshop set for Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 5:30 p.m. Commissioners Malcolm Page, Pat Patterson and Jody DeVane, however, were in favor of moving forward with the talks that evening. The commission then turned to County Attorney Conrad Bishop to outline several issues he had noted about the agreement, the rst of which was the clause about the partnership. As the discussion continued about the clauses wording and Arnolds explanation, however, Patterson stated she was now in favor of tabling the matter until the workshop. When no one else offered a second, Feagle passed the gavel to Page to second the motion. Arnold noted that the DMH boards next meeting was scheduled for the same time as the workshop, but then stated they were willing to change the date of their meeting to accommodate the commission. The board then agreed in a 3-2 vote to table the matter, with Page and DeVane voting no. DMH CEO Geri Forbes asked commissioners to send any specic questions concerning the agreement to her ahead of the workshop so they could be prepared with answers. Assistant County Administrator Dustin Hinkel instructed the board to send the questions to him so he could forward them to DMH. The workshop will be held at the Courthouse Annex on Green Street.

A-4 Perry News-Herald September 20-21, 2013 Living Birthday cake salutes Roseheads 12 yearsLongtime members Debi Limoges and Martell Shiver planned the 12th anniversary party for the Roseheads of Perry, chapter 2207 of the Red Hat Society. Members gathered for lunch on Saturday, Aug. 24, at Logans in Tallahassee. In the private dining room, a table held a display of Red Hat items, a birthday cake, photographs and a remembrance to our fallen Rosehead sisters. After ringing the Red Hat bell, Limoges welcomed everyone to the celebration and reviewed the history of the chapter as well as changes through the years. The most signicant change, she noted, was closing the chapter in 2005 due to huge membership. Limoges then read selections from Tea Society that were pertinent to the Red Hat Society, emphasizing two important points: Women enjoy the company of other women and If you obey all the rules, you will miss all the fun. Cheryl Gregory announced that the chapters charter had been renewed. Steak and seafood, with salads and soups, were served, and good fellowship was enjoyed at each table. A somber tone emerged as memories were recalled of Rosehead sisters who have passed away. Members agreed, Each is greatly missed. On a happier note, Limoges and Shiver cut the cake and served everyone. Afterwards, members joined in singing all four verses of The Red Hat Anthem, to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. From a large assortment of red and purple bags on the hearth of the replace, the hostesses presented each member with a thank you gift. Heirloom roses You may have seen these blooms in you grandmothers garden.... Weavers add one more to family tree Lacyn was welcomed home by his sister, Abigail, and brother, Lil Chris. Maternal grandparents are Dennis and Maxine Hutto of Thomasville, Ga. Paternal grandparents are Billy Sr. and Margaret Weaver of Perry. Chris and Misty Weaver announce the birth of their son, Lacyn Jeffery, on Sept. 7, 2013, at 5:59 a.m. He weighed 7 pounds and was 20 inches long. By MARTHA FROSTICKTaylor County Master GardenersI have fond memories of one rose. I found it in my grandmothers front yard. Check your memory! These rose bushes are everywhere in our county. They are hearty, fast-growing, pestfree and reward us with dark, red blooms. The owers are small but the bushes bloom in early spring, summer and fall. The smell is forever in my mind. Grandmother didnt allow us to pick, just to smell. This rm warning didnt keep me from taking one or two when she was not watching. Our family has always had this rose, but never knew the name. Its very common to those who grow rosesits called Louis Philippe. Its a Chinese shrub rose which are fragrant, easy to grow, constantly bloom and will grow from cuttings. The other rose of my childhood was pink, sixfoot high and almost as wide. It was in front of Aunt Evelyns house. Guess what She always let me pick those beautiful and large pink blooms. This rose is Mrs. B. R. Cant. Its blooms are lovely. You can pick a large bouquet and not tell--from the bushthat you picked any. If you would like to see 13 varieties of old garden roses, go to our Extension Ofce and look to the left. Mr. Bill Dority, a rosarian of Tallahassee, gave these to our Master Gardener program, and we planted them there. Another great place to see heirloom roses at their best is springtime in Goodwood Plantation in Tallahassee. They also have a rose sale where you can buy plants taken from all the roses grown there. The best and cheapest place to get your roses is always from friends and neighbors. We are always happy to share that special bush that comes down from family. Roses are easy to grow in our sandy soil. You just have to know the right Taylor raises more than any other team, person or company With seven days left to receive donations, Anne Morgan reports that the Taylor County team has raised $3,120 for the Walk to End Alzheimers.

Whether you make a donation or not, please e-mail me at morgan2827@yahoo. com with the names of your loved ones so we can walk their honor or memory. I am so proud of our community for stepping up to support Alzheimers research, she said. The team also hopes to make people aware that rural communities like Taylor County need more resources, especially respite care, to help families coping with this disease. The local support group is organizing to lobby for additional resources for small, rural communities. COME WALK SEPT. 28! Please see page 5

Billy and Connie LaValle were named Taylor Countys Farm Family of the Year at the Taylor County Farm Bureau (TCFB) annual meeting held Thursday, Sept. 5, at the Catholic Parish Hall. The LaValles were recognized for their poultry, hay, blueberry, cattle and timber operation. Nearly 100 people were on hand to watch as Taylor County Extension Agent Clay Olson and Jerry Register presented the award to the family. Olson called Billy LaValle an innovator always making updates around his farm. Charles Shinn III, Florida Farm Bureaus director of government & community affairs was guest speaker for the event. Once a year we gather as a community at our local Farm Bureau annual meeting. Like other Farm Bureau people across the state, we enjoy food and fellowship. We recognize outstanding volunteers and staff people. We also conduct a little bit of business, Shinn said. He continued, But our annual meetings also serve another purpose. They remind us that we share a common set of values. Some of you may not be farmers or ranchers; some of you may just have a policy with our insurance company; some of you may not even be Farm Bureau members--yet. A good life involves agriculture. Our domestic food, ber and renewable fuel production is the foundation of the quality of our lives. It is what sustains us. The people who make it so successful--our farmers and ranchers--deserve our best effort when we represent our agricultural production. For this reason, Farm Bureau volunteer leaders constantly serve as ambassadors for Floridas farm families. Their loyal, dedicated work makes Farm Bureau the Voice of Florida Agriculture. They act as public spokespersons. They hold informative farm tours for school children and other visitors. They also form a powerful group of citizen activists who maintain positive relationships with ofcials in our local, state and federal governments. In fact, locally your board is incredibly active promoting Farm Bureau activities. Every spring, President Helen Houck, board members and ofce staff hold a Youth Ag Day where 250 fourth graders are taught about corn varieties, honey production, as well as equine and nursery production. Your county Farm Bureau is extremely involved in the legislative process through active attendance at our Farm Bureau Days in Tallahassee during the spring as well as your multicounty legislative meeting. Your county Farm Bureau is active even to the point that you planned a farm tour just this afternoon on LaValles poultry and blueberry farm for Senator Bill Montford but unfortunately he was unable to attend due to a sickness. These accomplishments and honors are the result of the gift of time and energy by Farm Bureau volunteers on behalf of purposes beyond themselves. That is the core of Farm Bureau. The secret of Farm Bureaus achievements through the years is really no secret at all. You are the secret. Our strength is in our membership. Farm Bureau members like you have left the comfort of being at home or on the farm and stepped out into our larger society. They have been ambassadors for agriculture. They have contacted their state legislators, their county commissioners, their members of Congress and other elected ofcials. They have interacted with a public that does not have rsthand knowledge about food production. They have been willing to speak to a news reporter about why agriculture is important for their entire communities. There are many good volunteers who have contributed so much to our organization in this room. Thank you for all that you do. With your volunteer service, you have not just helped to maintain your own farm operation. You have not just helped to maintain agriculture in Florida. You have helped to build a future quality of life for generations to come. Shinn concluded his remarks by stating, Thank you for all that you do.
