Please see page 3 TCHS resource ofcer position in jeopardy? Several members of the Perry City Council expressed their concerns regarding a plan by the school district to possibly replace longtime school resource ofcer Nellie Walker, who is assigned to Taylor County High School. During discussions held Tuesday night, Mayor Daryll Gunter asked that the issue be brought before the council seeking input. I asked (City Manager) Bob (Brown) to draft a letter from us responding to their request that we fund part of the resource ofcers salary, he said. They want us to pay half, or more, of her salary when they are the ones she works forwe provide the ofcer as a service to the school district and they have always funded the position. Now they want us to subsidize her salary, Gunter continued. Plus they are coming to us now two months into our budget and well into their budget yearthey should have come to us earlier, while we were considering our budget for the new year. It is really inappropriate timing, considering we are already two months into the new school year, Brown noted. A resource ofcer is really needed at that school and Nellie is such an asset, Councilwoman Venita Woodfaulk said. My position is we dont really want to assume this (funding) right now. We are going to take care of our employee, or at least this vote is, and thats not the question.

WHITE firstname.lastname@example.org and amazing Margaret Laings life has been full of surprises from the very beginning. I was a surprise to my mom and dad as she was 34 and he was 64, she explained. The surprise wasnt entirely because of the age of her parents. Her mother had been in a wreck during an earlier pregnancy, and she wouldnt be able to have more children. So when she felt a foot kick her in the ribs after nine years, she was sort of surprised, Margaret continued. I tumbled out on this The surprises havent stopped. her children and me with the publication of her new novel, Midnight Moon. Ive never met Margaret Laing, but her life story has quickly made her one of my favorite people. Several months ago, I began receiving emails from Margaret regarding my column. Melanie, whom I live with, reads me your articles, and we both get a laugh at some of them. Margaret explained that she was legally blind, which is why her daughter has to read the column to her. A few emails later, Margaret told me that she was an aspiring writer and that she had recently written and published a novel, Midnight Moon. I wrote the novel this year, she said. I was inspired and surprised, so I began asking questions What is Midnight Moon about? She told me how the novel was inspired by boat being caught in a hurricane when she Daytona Beach area. I guess some of those things made me think of Captain King and his daughter being caught in the hurricane and washed ashore with the Nightstar, she elaborated. I wasnt sure just how they were to be rescued. I sort of played it by ear. The novel is currently available on Amazon.com. Midnight Moon before I asked Margaret to tell me more about when and how she chapter, I decided to go ahead and ask. Margaret, who graduated from high school in Taylor County, said when she came back home to live with her daughter Carol Lee Falany several years ago, she was bitten by the writing bug. I was walking my little John Henry and this man was standing by his trailer so I stopped and spoke, she explained. While we were talking he mentioned that he had been in a plane crash and showed me the scars where he had been seriously cut by the windshield of the plane as it crashed. I was intrigued and thought that it would make a great story. After all these years, I am now editing it. She hopes to publish that novel soon. As for Midnight Moon, writing and publishing the novel has been a family affair. Her son, John Eric, who has written and published seven novels that are also available on Amazon.com, helped with the editing and publishing process. Margarets daughter, Carol, drew the novels cover art. And did I mention the other reason Margaret Laing is near the top of my list of favorite people? She personally knew one of my all-time favorite writers--Zora Neale Hurston, author of the classic novel, There Eyes Were Watching God, which was made into a critically acclaimed movie by Oprah Winfreys company a few years ago. The movie starred Halle Berry. a houseboat at Howards Boat Yard in Daytona Beach, while visiting her Aunt Georgie who was a close friend of Hurston. She was a very intelligent and lovely woman, Margaret recalled. Quotable Quotes Its time to cheer (again) tonight!

A-3 Perry News-Herald October 11-12, 2013 An eyewitness said he saw the boy on the back of the truck and saw him fall off truck, hitting his head on the bumper, as the vehicle turned left onto Grantham Hill. Driver Jerry Blaske, 24, continued driving to his home, unaware that Brown had been riding on the back of his 2001 Chevrolet Silverado truck or that he had fallen off the vehicle and was injured. No charges will be led in the incident, Florida Highway Patrol Trooper John Sleigher reported. Nellie, Gunter said. If this something they want to bring to us, they should be considering it for the next scal year and then we can really work on it for next year, Councilman Mike Deming said. We arent just talking about the cost of her salary/ benet increase from this year ($2,400) but closer to $35,000 annually when you factor in salary, benets, retirement, etc., Gunter said. Sgt. Walker is a valuable asset not only for the children in the school district, but the community as a whole. She not only serves as the school resource ofcer, but she also supervises the school crossing guards and is the truancy ofcer, Capt. Jamie Cruse said. I think all of us are committed to make sure that Nellie is taken care of, thats why I wanted the council to review this letter and give Bob the approval to go ahead and send it to the superintendent, Gunter said. Council members said they agreed with the stand taken in the letter and informed Brown to forward it to Supt. of Schools Paul Dyal and Board Chairman Brenda Carlton. The letter stated: The superintendent has advised the city that the school system may be considering replacing the school resource ofcer provided at cost to the school for years by the city. This is acceptable to the city only if it is done in an orderly and equitable fashion. The contract between each of our boards has been the same for years, with the only relevant changes each year being increased employee costs, which are passed along. The city staffs this position exclusively for the use of the school system; it performs no regular activities for the city. Both of our boards are in new budget years for which this position has been allocated. If the schools would like to wind down the cityprovided school resource ofcer, we ask that you do so at the end of the current school year, or when a vacancy occurs at the city police department. As the city recently lled a vacancy in the police department and in good faith kept the stafng of the resource ofcer into the new school and budget year, we feel the schools should honor the stafng that is in place. The city taxpayers should not be required to take on the cost of the school resource position at a point two months into the school year and after new scal years have started. it had been moved up this year due to anticipated rule changes. It is anticipated FDOT District Two will award and divide $5 million between 18 counties, Cox said. This is approximately $275,000 per county. A cash match is not required. In-kind project and grant administration services will be required. If the project requires design, engineering and bidding services, FDOT will provide these services for a portion of the funds awarded. Earlier this year, the county was awarded funding in the 2019 cycle for the construction of a 0.79 mile sidewalk along Green Street from Arena Street to Howard Street for foot trafc coming and leaving Taylor County Elementary School. Additionally, the county is set to receive funding for a trailhead at the Keaton Beach Coastal Park, as well as a multi-use trail/ sidewalk from the park to Dark Island. Both of those projects will help the county meet requirements set forth in the land acquisition grant they used to purchase the property on which the park was built. The second public hearing on the grant application will be held during the commissioner meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 22, which begins at 5:30 p.m. RESOURCE OFFICER Continued from page 1 BOY Continued from page 1 Driver did not know boy was on truck bumper Floridas Teacher of the Year, Dorina Sackman, will be a special guest at Saturdays Trek for Tech and fall festival at Taylor County Elementary School.

GFWC CLUBS GATHER HERE Fall brings beautiful weather, leaves...and a recipe By FLORRIE BURROUGHS Shady Grove columnistHappy Fall everyone!!!! There is something special about Fall, more so than any other of the four seasons. Maybe its the refreshing coolness in the breeze that is especially welcome after the long hot days of summer. Or maybe its the leaves, even here in Florida, as they turn golden, red and brown. Morning Glory, Black-Eyed Susans, Golden Rods and other wild owers seem to appear overnight making the countryside a spectacular witness to the glory of God. Maybe its the sweet remembrance of a loved one who shared a special appreciation for Fall. And the memories of many Fall trips to the mountains where we enjoyed the spectacular changing of the leaves so many times together. I really cant describe it, but it is my favorite season. Special events Two special events were held in Shady Grove on Saturday. Wallace and Cheryl Sessions celebrated Please see page 5

Editors Note: Perry Newspapers, Inc., will feature reports submitted by members of the Boys & Girls Club regarding their past, current and future events. The following article was written by club member Sidney Bailey. By SIDNEY BAILEY This nine weeks at the Boys & Girls Club we are learning about Victory Gardens. If you have never heard of these, they are really pretty cool. Back during World War II it was a really hard time for our nation. There was a food shortage going on and the government actually had to ration out food for people and families. So by planting Victory Gardens families helped prevent food shortages. Planting these gardens also meant there was also enough food for the soldiers ghting around the world. People who didnt have a yard planted small gardens in window boxes or on the rooftops of tall apartment buildings. Many schools also planted their own gardens on school grounds and used the produce in their school lunches. So these gardens were very important to our country and helped American people survive. We are planting small potted vegetables for our Victory Garden project and hope to have some of our very own fresh produce. I think Victory Gardens were a very neat idea and think maybe we should start planting them again. A-10 Perry News-Herald October 11-12, 2013 Lessons in Six cadets from the Taylor County High School JROTC visited Taylor County Middle School Sept. 25 to share information on proper ag protocol with a class of seventh graders. The students were eager to learn about our ags history and how to properly respect it at the correct times.

(Top photo, left) Cadet Sergeant First Class Tate Corbett, Cadet First Lieutenant Zachary Geyer, Cadet Private First Class Courtney Turnmire and Cadet Command Sergeant Major Madison Elliott demonstrate how to properly fold the ag. (Bottom photo, left) Cadet Sergeant First Class Tate Corbett, Cadet First Lieutenant Zachary Geyer, Cadet Staff Sergeant Drew Watkins, Cadet Sergeant Major Madison Elliott and Cadet Private Courtney Turnmire raising the ag. During National Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12), the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) reminds the public to take measures to prevent wildres, and encourages the public to learn about the benets of prescribed re on district lands. Prescribed re The district does its part to prevent res by using prescribed re as a strategy to maintain natural resources and reduce the risk of wildres. On average, 7,000-12,000 acres are burned each year. Prescribed re helps facilitate overall ecological restoration by enhancing native upland and wetland vegetation and improving habitat for native wildlife. Prescribed re is also used to reduce fuel levels in forests to help lower the intensity and to reduce the risk of wildre. Other benets of prescribed re include plant disease control, soil nutrient restoration and aesthetic improvement. Scott Gregor, district natural resource specialist, said from Oct. 1, 2012, through Sept. 30, 2013, SRWMD exceeded its typical annual average by burning more than 12,100 acres on district property. About 12,000 acres are planned for prescribed re on district properties for the upcoming season in the following counties: Lafayette, Dixie, Taylor, Suwannee, Jefferson, Hamilton, Levy, Madison and Gilchrist. Campres on district lands Campres are only allowed at boat/canoe camp sites with a special use authorization and at developed campgrounds in accordance with their regulations. A ban on campres is put in place when prolonged weather conditions result in high re danger. Campres are also banned during any county issued re ban. Visitors to district lands are advised to exercise caution during all outdoor activities, keeping in mind that sparks from vehicles, cigarettes, equipment and vehicle exhaust systems while parked on grass can start a wildre. This is important particularly since we are entering the dry season and given that most of our parking areas are unpaved, said Edwin McCook, district land management specialist. By practicing caution on district lands the public can do their part to prevent wildres. 12,100 acres burn as part of prescribed re program B&G Club plants its own Victory Garden Register now for Strutt Your Mutt pet parade Oct. 25 Helping Hands of the Shelter will host its fourth annual Strutt Your Mutt Contest Friday, Oct. 24, in conjunction with the 58th annual Florida Forest Festival.
