By SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor When Dr. James Rawls began talking, I was transported back 30 years to his ofce on East Ash Street, where he sat and listened to his patients, or their parents, in an examining room lled with growth charts and medical models. And then he would speak. The conversation might begin with bronchitis but, invariably, it would nd its way to seasonal affective disorder, or the bodys innate ability to compensate, or the latest ruling on essential vaccines. Dr. Rawls, our family physician, endeared himself to his patients this way, as if he were their Encyclopedia For All Things Medical. And he was. He earned his medical degree from the College of Medicine at the University of Florida, but his journey to that pinnacle beganon the farm. Rawls grew up in a community called Fellowship, not far from Ocala and Williston. Im just a country boy, he maintains, and I grew up among country people. But he says that with no condescension. He has great condence and deep respect for country people. My father was one of 13 kids. He left school in the ninth grade to work on the farm to make some pennies, Rawls remembers. But he instantly recalls another important detail: He was a diesel mechanic, but after a long days work, hed bring home technical manuals to readI mean, manuals which were 10 inches thick. I later learned that as questions arose, he could respond with, Well, if youd look in your manual on the rst page of the section about and he knew where the answers were. He read widely. To some extent, I never was as smart a man as my dad. Rawls rst stay in Perry happened in his early years when his fathers company was sent here for road construction. They were an asphalt paving company but used diesel equipment which my father knew inside and out. I actually went to school in Perry during the rst paving of the Beach Road from U.S. 19 down to Dead Mans Curve and I believe I was part of the rst class to meet in the stone building. Rawls said his father knew that his childrens future depended on greater education so he pursued a job in Jacksonville and moved the family. His company was small, at rst, and tasked with building the Jacksonville Naval Station. It grew quickly and eventually bought the Tampa Shipbuilding Yard, along with many other corporations during World War II. So with a ninth grade education, my father became the companys mechanical supervisor, responsible for maintaining hundreds of pieces of equipment. But the emphasis on reading continued. For my 12th birthday, I got a set of Compton Encyclopedias, he said. In high school, he admitted, he could read a book a day. Ive never required much sleep, and I Serving the Tree Capital of the South Since 1889 Perry News-HeraldPerry News-Herald 50 Friday/ SaturdayNovember 29-30, 2013 Index Weather Friday64 34 Saturday 69 42 Sunday69 48 Perry News-Herald Perry News-Herald Looking Back . ..........

This is a positive sign. They are coming over from their Panama City Beach ofces for the site visit, which is part of their permitting process. There really is no timeline on how long the permitting process will take, but this is a good step forward, City Manager Bob Brown said. Once the site visit is done, they will advertise a 30-day period where they will receive public comment on the proposed project. They will review the comments and may include some of the issues drawn from them when they question us further about the plans.

A-2 Perry News-Herald November 29-30, 2013 Looking Back November 29-30, 2013 Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comPlan of attack There was no such thing as a Black Friday when I was growing, but if there had been, Black Friday and the entire Thanksgiving holiday would have taken on a whole different meaning. At least it would have around my house. My grandmother loved a good sale, and a sale as huge as Black Friday would have been too much to undertake on her own. If she was here today for Black Friday, I would not be lying on the sofa, channel Thanksgiving dinner right now. No one in the family would be. Instead, we would all be busy manning our posts or working in whatever capacity General Patton assigned us. She would have begun putting her dayafter-Thanksgiving plans into motion months earlier. Because my grandmother loved having the inside track, she would have called all of her children, grandchildren and friends of the family together who were unemployed and had the places she planned to do her Black Friday shopping. So, by today, some of my folks would have been on their and would have given my grandmother bargains. The rest of us--children, grandchildren and even friends of the family--would have received our assignments the Monday before Thanksgiving. I would be head of communications and tracking. To ensure she and her troops were in charge of helping my brother Tony and my cousins Andre, Archie, Carlos, Dominique and Jarrian set up their new residences--tents posted outside each of the stores my grandmother planned on visiting Black Friday. Cheryl, Angela, Teresa and Terri would be posted in clothing, appliances and toys at K-Mart. Gloria, Frances, posts at Walmart. Dionne and her sister, Diane, would cover the drugstores. Tangela and Sherice would monitor the Charmaine, Sherice and Brandy would be stationed throughout downtown. And Lucy and Kashari, along with my aunts Precious and Willie Mae, would be at my off the hook. My uncles, Larry, Walter and Willie, would all be vice-presidents of hauling all the Black Friday deals home. My cousins Rico, Kevin and Shaakira would then oversee receiving and sorting. On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, my grandmother would have walked us to posts inside stores would have also received a list of items they should make a mad dash to once the doors open. Wednesday would be a dress rehearsal. Then, Thursday night--after Thanksgiving dinner and after quizzing would direct each of us to our assigned post. start, but she would relieve my brother or cousin from their tent post in front of the doors minutes before the door open. Those assigned to posts inside other stores would relieve the cousin posted outside that store and take their position at the front of the line. If my grandmother was here for Black Friday, from before midnight last night until around noon today, I would have been busy relaying messages between my grandmother and her troops. Instead somewhere in Dreamland, thankful that Black Friday only comes once a year. Days gone by Holidays are a time for loved ones to gather and celebrate their present, look to the future and toast their past. We hope your season of thanks includes spending old photo albums and remembering when. The family photos featured here are courtesy of the Taylor County Facebook page where residents are encouraged to post pictures and help capture the stories from Perry and gone by.

(Right) Joseph Milton Cruce of Shady Grove is shown with four of his children: Ella, Maggie, Virgie and Elmer Cruce. Editors Note: Thanksgiving has become such a long-standing tradition for American families, that many may have forgotten that it was George Washington himself who rst declared the holiday to be celebrated. The following are excerpts from Washingtons original manuscript proclaiming that the th day of November be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the benecent Author of all the good that was, that is or that will be. The proclamation was sent to the executives of the state by the president in a brief form letter dated Oct. 3, 1789: Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benets and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee required me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanks-giving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them the opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the benecent Author of all the good that was, that is or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks, for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation, for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war, for the great degree of tranquility, union and plenty, which we have since enjoyed, for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us. And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions, to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually, to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed, to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace and concord. To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and Us, and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best. Why do we give thanks?


A-3 Perry News-Herald November 29-30, 2013was often caught reading at night under the covers with a ashlight. Rawls graduated from Andrew Jackson High School in Jacksonville in 1947 and knew he wanted to go on to college. My father was always conscious that he had no formal education and he wanted us to have that opportunity. At the age of l3, Rawls got a job at the corner grocery store, delivering customers orders to their homes by bicycle. He smiles as he describes the large basket that was placed on the bicycle with a broomstick to keep it in place; four orders could typically be managed in one trip. Thats one of the reasons I could play college football, he says, chuckling. I pedaled groceries all over North Jacksonville. One of his high school coaches took a coaching job at Tennessee Wesleyan in Athens, Tenn., and recruited him. It was in the Smoky Mountains and I woke up every morning to that beautiful view, he remembers. He played two years there, bulked up to 195 pounds and then earned a scholarship to play at the University of Florida. He admits that, even at 195 pounds, he couldnt have played in todays SEC but he was a defensive guard for the Gators for two years. Youve got to understand that the biggest manor one of the biggest menin the SEC at that time was only 250 pounds: Lou Michaels, he was All-American, AllPro. Nowadays, he could be a running back and I could be a water boy, Rawls said with a smile. The Gators were state champs in 1947, during Rawls tenure, under Coach Rankin Hudson. Yet he never lost sight of his goal. I was pre-med all the way at junior college and at Florida, he said, remembering that a cousin in Ocala was a physician. So I knew that such was possible. Rawls admits, knowing such is possible is important. Timing is everything, though. Rawls graduated in the middle of the Korean War, and even though he didnt have to serve in Korea, the U .S. Army called his name. I had been in the National Guard for three years, so even though I went in as a private, they made me a platoon leader. I didnt want to do Ofcer Candidate School because that would be another two-year investment and I had a coaching job waiting on me. Thats what I wanted to do. Memories of those who served in Korea take him back miles and years. The human stories have stayed with me, he said. After World War II, we had let our armed forces go to hell, so we were lucky the North Koreans didnt kill all of us. I remember one commander saying he had a platoon of clerk typists. Its not easy to defend a country with only clerk typists, but they did it somehow. Rawls was recruited by the Counter Intelligence School in Baltimore, Md., and became an agent, assigned to the Raleigh, N.C., ofce. He says the concept sounds more intriguing than it really was. Mainly, we did background investigations because the Army was rebuilding and there were positions which required security clearance. The most interesting thing I didthat I can tell you about, he says, is interview the North Carolina boys who were POWs in North Korea. He just shakes his head. What they went through he says, and says no more. After the Army, Rawls coaching job in St. Petersburg was waiting on him. With a degree in education required for coaches, Rawls had successfully balanced two majorspre-med, as well as educationnow adding the high school gridiron and classes he taught on American history to his juggling act. He remembers his time in the classroom fondly. One six-week term had to be on the U.S. government and constitution, he said, with a glimmer in his eye. It was required by law and still should be. That might have been the favorite part of my job. He went on to pursue a Masters degree in secondary education but wasnt terribly impressed with the graduate-level education classes, so Rawls completed all his electives in English (loving Shakespeares comedies and also his dramas) and chemistry. My last summer, when I was nishing up, my advisor chastised me because none of my electives were in my eld. The catalog doesnt require it, I said to him. I do, his advisor retorted. So I walked out of there and got an application for medical school. By then, he had a family. He moved his wife and two kids in diapers to a small house in Gainesville where his four years of medical school would take place. Coach Woodruff set me up with a graduate fellowship so I could work with the freshman football team and also scout high school football games all over the area. I was on the road all the time, he remembers. The GI Bill was immensely helpful with medical school expenses but the Rawls family still had to watch the bank account closely. So I built a 24-foot addition to our little house, and rented it to a student for $35 a month. That helped, he said. He completed his internship in St. Petersburg and was ready to return to a rural area. I went to Jasper in Hamilton County and loved it. I was only there 10 months when John Parkers dad, who had been a hunting friend of my dad, invited me to come to visit in Perry. I really liked the community and moved here in 1964. From 1964 until 1996, Dr. Rawls went from room to room inside his Ash Street ofce, asking, So how can I help you today? or So whats going on with you? The job was gratifying, but the days and nights were long. John Parker and I became partners without any nancial afliation, and good, professional friends. The numbers of people we had to see every day he says, shaking his head. It was not unusual for us to see 50 patients. Then he pauses, and adds, Well, there was no one else. The day began at 6 a.m. After the day was complete, the phone rang all night, he said. Fortunately, he adds, neither one of us required a lot of sleep. Wed often end up sharing a pot of hot tea at 3 a.m. after nding each other in the emergency room. Do you know how we transferred patients then? he asked. By hearse. We didnt have EMTs but we had a pretty dadburn good intensive care system, and got better results with cardiac patients by keeping them close to technicians watching monitors. When Rawls began his practice here, ofce calls were $4. We soon started charging $5, he admits, but he regrets the escalation of drug prices in the industry today, specically mentioning that vaccines are horribly expensive. I couldnt practice todayI would not. But I miss the people, the relationshipsthat was the fun for me. We worked horrible hours but the challenges entertained me. For the rst ve or six years following his retirement, Rawls said he got a lot of calls for medical advice from people who had been good patients and good friends, he adds quickly. Not so much now, he adds, but he still keeps his white coat handy as he works two days a week at Buckeye Cellulose. Were going to travel a little now, he says, to places Ive read about. Ive always been intrigued by the Renaissance period in Italy, but who knows? As a modied version of the Renaissance man himself, Rawls is as comfortable talking about tractors (Do you know what a D-8 Caterpillar Tractor looks like? he asked) as he is about plants, including orchids. His richly paneled study (for which he built the cabinets) displays several American Orchid Society blue ribbons. I never could get off work but Dickie (Zeigler) would show my orchids for me. It was a book which led him to orchids. Have you ever read the Nero Wolfe series? he asked. I read all those mysteriesloved themand Nero had orchids, so I thought Id try them. Fishing has been a longtime pastime, too, but he admits that wife, Margie, is the sherwoman in the family. For the rst 10 years of our marriage, we spent every weekend at the Suwannee River. As an aside, he mentions that Margies younger brother was a freshman when he was a graduate assistant teaching at UF. And also that the teacher he had at the rock building, later became a patient. Im perfectly happy in Perry. Of course, Id be perfectly happy out in the countryway out in the country, but he gestures toward the kitchen, Id never get her there. Rawls daughter, Cindy Worsham, works part time at Buckeye Credit Union. His oldest son, James III, also earned a degree from UF in mathematics, Curt has spent his career selling supplies to large newspapers and Robert William (named for Rawls brother) nishes out the family. Have you had a vaccination recently? he asked. The answer did not please him. Suddenly, Im back in the examination room on Ash Street with the walls closing in. Hes going to tell me why its important and he will remember to asklaterif I followed through. Because, of course, he is all his (former) patients personal Encyclopedia For All Things Medical. A little thing like retirement doesnt really change that. RAWLS Continued from page 1When Rawls began his medical practice in Perry, For patients, Rawls was Encyclopedia For All Things Medical

A-7 Perry News-Herald November 29-30, 2013 The district has also let us know that the funding for the $355,000 grant it awarded us for the project is available, Brown noted. We have also received the necessary permit from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to tie the parks walking trial into the sidewalk that runs along the west side of Jefferson Street. Billboards showcasing the plans for the proposed lake have been posted at the splash pad (anking the east side of Jefferson Street and adjacent to the Grand Pavilion) as well as at the city limits sign on the south end of town. We will also have the billboard at the upcoming Southern Pines Blues & BBQ Festival Dec. 13-14 so people can take a closer look at what is planned, Brown said. Once we receive the permit from the Corps of Engineers, then we will be able to proceeds with advertising for bids from contractors for the project. The lake, which is part of the downtown revitalization plan adopted more than year ago by the Perry City Council, will span the area between Jefferson Street and Center. The lakefront will include walking paths, amphitheater and shing opportunities. Badwater.
