With the levy set to expire following the 2014-15 school year, Superintendent Paul Dyal is recommending the school board place the issue back on the 2014 election ballot to renew the levy for an additional four years to help cover an expected jump in technology costs resulting from new state mandates. Dyal made his recommendation during a workshop Tuesday and the board is expected to take the issue up for a vote at its Jan. 21, 2014, meeting. Dyal began Tuesdays workshop by outlining what he said were technology concerns facing the district in upcoming years. Florida statutes require districts to make available digital Please see page 5

WHITE firstname.lastname@example.orgA dream come true What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore--And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over--like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? Those are the questions Langston Hughes posed in his classic poem, A Dream Deferred. I was in junior high and it instantly became one of my favorite poems. Since then, whenever life has gotten in the way and slowed the pursuit of my dreams, Ive turned to this poem and asked its essential question, What happens to a dream deferred? Today, Im living on the cusp of a On Tuesday, Dec. 17, publisher, Simon and Schuster, will release my novel, Our First Love, to an international market. Although this dream has been a long time coming, I fully expected it to become reality because I learned early on that a deferred dream isnt necessarily a dead dream. What I didnt expect was how up my dream-come-true would be. Sleep has never come easy for me, but insomnia has taken on a whole new meaning during the past few weeks. Ive never experienced writers block, but writing anything, even a grocery And, this week alone, Ive been compelled to read the complete novel more times than Ive read it since I weeks. Ive had other dreams come true, so this feeling is somewhat familiar. However, the dream thats coming true now has been with me longer than any other dream Ive had. I think I dreamed of being a published writer before I learned to write. And it wasnt just my dream. It was a dream shared by my grandmother, mother and most of my family. literary agent snapped up my selfForget, and assured me of success. A week or so later, several publishers who had been interested in the novel balked after the tragic events of 9/11 made tearjerker novels like mine a hard sell. So my dream was deferred. self-published Our First Love, my brother was killed in an auto accident. I was emotionally unable to promote and market the novel at the time, so I took it off the market. My dream was deferred again. A few months later, Strebor Books and Simon & Schuster considered the novel, but decided the time wasnt right for it. So, once again, my dream was deferred. Earlier this year, in February, the publishers contacted me and said the time was right for Our First Love. And thats why today, Im on the cusp of a dream coming true. I could have given up, but I didnt because I know what happens to a dream deferred. If you hold them tightly, believe wholeheartedly, and work tirelessly, they eventually come true.

2013 Blues & BBQ page 10 Longtime Taylor County businessman and entrepreneur Bishop Clark has developed a new product that Blues and BBQ Festival goers can sample this weekend. Clarks No Name BBQ Sauce is starting to become a hit in North Florida as it is now in 34 retail outlets and 12 counties (including Save A Lot stores) stretching from Pahokee to Marianna. Clark will be handing out free samples from his booth at the festival this weekend. Some 20 years ago he began tinkering with a couple of BBQ sauce recipes and after combining several key ingredients, he came up with a very unique sauce. In 2010 my boss tried it at a company picnic and asked if I would make a batch for our customers Christmas gifts. I did and before I knew it, I was spending more time making and delivering sauce than I was on my real job, Clark said. Earlier this year he took a leave of absence from his job and has been full time ever since preparing the sauce for market. He struggled for several months trying to come up with the right name when one day his wife said, Just dont name it. So, he named it the No Name BBQ Sauce. We say Its so good it needs no name, Clark said. Many who have tried it agree. Clark says he has had a lot of support and prayers from friends and family and he is extremely grateful. Look for Clarks sauce in local stores and at the festival. You can also friend him on Facebook at No Name BBQ Sauce. A sauce so good, it needs No Name Organizers are unveiling a new event at the sixth annual Southern Pines Blues & BBQ Festival: a special Battle at BBQ Junction series competition that is open to the public. BBQ fans will be able to get up-close-and-personal to watch as two teams face off in identicallyequipped tents as they prepare a mystery dinner for local VIP judges. Teams will have one hour and 45 minutes to prepare an appetizer, side dish, main dish and a dessert from whatever is given to them in a mystery boxusing identical cookers and identical ingredients from a well-stocked pantry. After the rst head-to-head battle at 3 p.m. today (Friday), another two teams will square off at 6:45 p.m. The two winners will face one another in the Battle at BBQ Junction Saturday at 3 p.m. (judging at 4:15 p.m.) The competition is just one of several highlights planned for the weekend, including the Open Competition featuring 50 top BBQ teams and the EZ Kidz Que Grillmaster Contest. Registration for the Kidz Que will continue until one hour prior to the event, which kicks off at 3 p.m. Saturday. Some $300 in cash and prizes will be awarded in two ages classes: 6-11 and 12-15. New this year: 4 teams will go head-to-head in Battle at BBQ Junction
