Rick Scott will ride in the King Tree Parade Saturday, Oct. 26, and will also attend Florida Forest Festival festivities at Forest Capital Park. Florida Gov. Rick Scott will attend the 58th annual Florida Forest Festival Saturday, Oct. 26, the rst sitting governor to do so since Gov. Lawton Chiles in the 1990s. The governor will walk in the King Tree Parade, which will begin at 10 a.m. and run along Jefferson Street in downtown Perry. Scott will also attend the festivities at Forest Capital State Park. We are very happy that Gov. Scott will be attending the festival this year, Festival Board Member Dawn Taylor said. We are honored that he has chosen to be part of this event. A number of Florida governors have attended the festival in years past, including Bob Graham and Claude R. Kirk Jr. The Florida Forest Festival began its history as the Pine Tree Festival in 1956 as a way to raise awareness of forest re safety. At the time, Taylor County had one of the worst re records in the country. Over the course of the next decade, the countys re record improved to one of the countrys best and in recognition, Gov. W. Haydon Burns declared Taylor County the Tree Capital of the South in 1965. One year later, the Pine Tree Festival became the Florida Forest Festival. Festival activities will continue tonight (Friday) in downtown Perry, beginning with the Strutt Your Mutt Dog Parade, held this year at Rosehead Parks Grand Pavilion at 6 p.m. and the annual Kids Parade around the courthouse square, also at 6 p.m. The Gaslight Classic Car Parade will reach downtown at 7 p.m. before returning to Perry Square (Save-a-Lot shopping center) for a street dance. Back downtown, kids will be able to take part in a Kids Fun Run at 7 p.m., which starts at the Historic Perry Station, and scary stories at the Grand Pavilion at 8 p.m. In addition to the King Tree Parade Saturday morning, Main Street Perry will host a farmers market at the Grand Pavilion from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, and the festivals Great Race 5k run, returns after being absent for a number of years. Following the parade, everyone will travel to Forest Capital State Park for the rest of the festival. Some 65 arts and crafts vendors are expected at the festival, opening at 9 a.m. along with dozens of special concessions and Beshears applauds courts decision invalidating net ban Taylor Countys state representative, Halsey Beshears, is heralding a Tuesday circuit court decision invalidating the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) net ban regulations and is calling on state ofcials to work with the litigants to nd a compromise. Within hours of the ruling, however, the state announced its intention to appeal the ruling by Leon County Circuit Court Judge Jackie Fulford, stating that the regulations will remain in effect while the case works its way through the system. Im disappointed that FWC is not nding a way to work with the shermen to resolve the issue and instead decided to appeal, Beshears told the Tallahassee Democrat Wednesday. This is not the rst time those ghting the state over the regulations imposed by FWC to enforce the 1994 PPD awarded for spice enforcement The Perry Police Department (PPD) was in the minority when it rst stepped up its enforcement efforts in 2011-12 regarding synthetic cannabis, more commonly known as spice. We recognized this as a looming epidemic, which was the push at that time to have synthetic substances identied and controlled beyond what the state was doing. We also stepped up enforcement of the citys spice ordinance addressing the possession and sale of these substances, Capt. Jamie Cruse said. More than year later, reports indicate that the departments efforts met with a large measure of success. It is not as readily available, Cruse said. Last Tuesday, Oct. 15, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) recognized the PPD for its work on spice control, awarding the department its 2013 MADD Hero for Drugged Driving Enforcement. After hearing what the PPD has been doing, it only made perfect sense to nominate them for the award. They are addressing the problem with the serious attention it deserves, said MADD Florida State Victim Services Manage Kristen Allen. It was wonderful to be able to honor the great work they do, which really shows how small steps can create a bigger impact, Allen said. Speakers for the event included Tracey Biggins, whose son Tyler (a Leon County fourth-grader) was one of three people killed in an impaired driving crash March 17, 2012. Hearing her talk about the loss of her son and the others just reinforced our resolve for impaired driving enforcement, Cruse said. Keynote speaker Mark Zeigler shared his familys own story of loss with the death of his brother-in-law Art Clemons, who was Please see page 3 Please see page 3 PPD Capt. Jamie Cruse, right, with Tracey Biggins, whose son was killed in an impaired driving crash in 2012. The new dog park is located adjacent to Folsom Park on South Center Street. It has areas designated for both large and small pets. New park honors Perrys angelsIn the past year, the Perry community has lost three young lives that were just beginning to bloom: Caleb Sullivan, 16; Angel Olivia Ketring, 15; and Jakourtney Tasha Davis, 19. In thanking the Perry City Council for dedicating its new dog park in honor of her daughter, Angel, former mayor Emily Weed Ketring has expressed her desire that the park honor all the children who have entered eternity, my Angel along with all of Perrys angels. The nal touches on the park were completed this week and a sign marking the dedication was placed at the site Wednesday. The park is located adjacent to Folsom Park on South Center Street, also known in local legend as the birthplace of Perry. In a recent letter to council members, Ketring summed up her familys journey of grief and loss: The people of Please see page 2 Please see page 3With school bullying continuing to make news across the nation, School Superintendent Paul Dyal said local schools are doing a very good job investigating reports of bullying brought to their attention here.

The form asks for details about the alleged conduct, including date and time as well as location.

Dyal said that schools investigating allegations made through the form must provide him with a copy of their nal report. He estimated there about three to four such reports per school year. Not all allegations meet the denition of bullying, although students can be disciplined for other actions should they proven during the course of the investigation, he said. Dyal added that due to student privacy laws, ofcials are prevented from discussing discipline given to the bully with the parents of the reporting student.

A-3 Perry News-Herald October 25-26, 2013 constitutional amendment banning the use of gill nets have won at the lower court level. In those previous cases, however, the litigants ultimately lost on appeal. In her ruling, which came after a year of considering the issues, Judge Fulford called the current situation a legal absurdity and it may well be that only further amendment to the constitution will correct the problem. She continued, It is abundantly unfair for the courts to continue to attempt enforcement of laws that contradict each other. It is understood that this decision, could, in the interim, cause some turmoil. Such a result is not the courts intent or desire. It would be much easier to simply deny the plaintiffs any relief and say you previously had your day in court. But the application of these laws by FWC appears to be fundamentally unfair and this court, as a court of equity, feels compelled to at least attempt to abate the unfairness. The ruling goes on to question FWCs authority to make exceptions to the net ban as well as the type of net--namely the size of the mesh holes--FWC has chosen to allow. The Net Ban Amendment says it was being adopted to ...protect saltwater nsh, shellsh and other marine animals from unnecessary killing, overshing and waste. If that is true, how can it be acceptable that the only net that FWC will permit the commercial shermen to use to catch mullet actually gills and entangles massive amounts of juvenile sh that are unlawful to keep; thus, causing signicant unnecessary killing and waste? Doesnt that defeat the purpose for which the Net Ban Amendment was enacted? Judge Fulford also questioned the enforcement of the ban. As now applied, it appears the commercial mullet shermen are being singled out for prosecution and if that is the case, it is simply not acceptable, she said in her ruling. FWC is appealing the decision to the First District Court of Appeals. NET BAN Continued from page 1FWC has led appealPerry have grieved with us and supported us like family. The pain of the loss is ineffable; however, the love has been equally abundant. We are truly thankful for living in such a loving community, it is very humbling. This last year, our community has experienced an enormous amount of tragic lossthree high school students. All three of them are special, unique and irreplaceable. Ive thought about many of the children that have gone to heaven and how precious they are.

The awards ceremony was held at the Leon County Civic Center. WCTV news anchor Shonda Knight served as emcee for the event.

B-1 Perry News-Herald October 25-26, 2013 Looking Back October 25-26, 2013 THE PERRY NEWS-HERALD October 26, 1978 All I wanted was a corn dog with a smathering of ketchup and a dab of mustard. I woke up Wednesday morning smacking my lips and scraping up my change. After nearly a month of counting calories and exercising daily to get rid of the excess pounds packed on during last years Florida Forest Festival, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, I granted myself a 4-day furlow from my carb-free diet. There would be no more lettuce, baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, or fat-free salad dressings at least until Sunday when the carnival packed up and moved on. So I spent the day Wednesday waiting for the sun to set over Taylor County and for the sights, sounds and aroma of the carnival to begin. I skipped breakfast, lunch and my mid-afternoon snack because I wanted to be hungrier than a bear after a winters hibernation when I headed out to the carnival. Even though my stomach was empty, it was cooperative and refused to growl, anticipating the delectable taste of a carnival corndog with a smathering of ketchup and a dab of mustard. This was truly a rst for a stomach that can roar louder than the meanest of lions. By the time I got off from work and stopped by the library, my stomach could stay quiet no more. I tried my best to ignore the amplied surround sound blasting from my stomach. A way-too-kind lady sitting at a computer next to me followed suit and tried her best to pretend she didnt hear the roaring. When the roaring became too loud to ignore, she turned and smiled at me then asked, Would you like a piece of gum or candy? Thanks for asking, I responded. But Im okay. Are you sure? she asked. Sounds like youre hungry to me. I was about to reply, Not really, when my stomach roared so loud it nearly knocked her out of her chair. That sounds like hunger to me, she said then handed me a Jolly Rancher. This wont ll you up, but itll stop your stomach from growling. I took the Jolly Rancher, but I didnt open the wrapper. Youre not going to eat it? she asked. I would, I responded, but I dont want to spoil my appetite. Im waiting for the carnival to open tonight so I can feast on corndogs. Thats when I heard the disturbing news. I was told the carnival wasnt opening until Thursday, she said and grabbed a handful of Jolly Ranchers out of her purse. What? my mouth fell open and the Jolly Rancher that was supposed to stop my stomach from growling landed on the oor. I dont know if its true, but thats what I heard, she added. As soon as my stomach heard this, hunger pangs began to kick my butt all over the place. I jumped out of my chair and headed for the door. Where are you going? the once way-too-kind dream destroyer asked. Im going to the carnival, I answered. What for? Its not open yet. My stomach growled back, Shut up! Ten minutes later, I drove past the carnival looking for a worker or anyone I could bribe out of a corndog. A man was walking near the road as I crept by. What time will you be opening? I asked. Some time tomorrow, he answered. Well, is there any way I can get a carnival corndog with a smathering of ketchup and a dab of mustard? Not until tomorrow. Are you sure? I asked, doubtful that this man knew anything about the corndogs or the carnival even though he worked there. Well, you can always go buy some from Winn-Dixie then ride by the carnival and pretend you got them from here, he grinned and said. And thats exactly what I did.
