A-14 Lundy more alert, able to communicate with family By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Staff writer When Kelly Lundy walked into her husbands hospital room wearing a t-shirt and bracelet both emblazoned with the words Team Lundy on them, he just looked at her and shook his head in amazement. It was like he just thoughtwow, I cant believe they would do that, Lundy said. His reaction and the fact he can communicate his thoughts with her are welcome improvements after watching his daily struggle to stay alive after being shot Feb. 5. Robert is a very modest, humble man. He is not going to believe what everyone is doing for him and for us, and all the attention he is getting. Unless youve been through something like this, it is just indescribable what it means to have such an outpouring of support. We are just overwhelmed with Please see page 3 Commission bestows rst-ever Certicate of Valor on deputy The accolades are continuing for Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce Deputy Robert Lundy who has been credited with saving numerous lives through his actions during the Feb. 5 shooting incident at Timberland Ford. On Tuesday, the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce and Taylor County Commission presented a Certicate of Valor to Lundys wife, his two daughters and his parents. Lundy remains in stable condition in Shands Hospital in Gainesville. His unselsh and heroic actions are exemplary and reect great credit upon himself, his family, the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce and Taylor County, the certicate states. Since Ive been on the board, to my knowledge, this is the rst time weve ever awarded a Certicate of Valor, and after thinking Please see page 3 County takes action on Helen St. After maintaining Helen Street for the almost the past 15 years, the Taylor County Commission voted Tuesday night to deed any claim it might have to the private roadway to the City of Perry and to immediately stop any work on it. Helen Street is a private, one-lane, dirt roadway which has been used as a public thoroughfare for decades to connect Ash Street and Pharo Morgan Road. Although the roadway is entirely within the city limits, the county has been maintaining the portion between Ash Street and Pharo Morgan Road since April 1999, with the commission voting 3-2 to begin grading it on a regular basis. The commission at the time did not adopt Helen Street as an ofcial county road, which has left questions for residents ever since as to who ultimately has the responsibility for the roadway. At Tuesdays meeting, County Administrator Jack Brown said he had received a request to close Helen Street from one of the property owners who owns a portion of the roadway. As the county administrator, I would be responsible to notify the sheriff to have the owner remove the obstacle if it was a county road, Brown told commissioners. Due to the questions surrounding the ownership of the roadway, however, he requested clarication from the commission on its position on the roadway as to whether they wanted to adopt the road or whether they wanted to continue the maintenance of it. County Attorney Conrad Bishop said due to its long-term use by the public and the documented maintenance by the county, the commission could claim the portion of the roadway it has maintained as a prescriptive easement. Listing additional options, Bishop said the county could stop maintaining the roadway or it could seek additional right-of-way from the property owners through eminent domain. Commission Chair Malcolm Page began the discussion by stating he was not in favor of adopting the road, adding that it has been the policy of the board to not adopt additional roads for the county road list. Commissioner Pat Patterson added her opposition to adopted the roadway. Several property owners present at the meeting said they would be happy if the road was closed due to the speed at which people travel along the roadway and the potential liability they face should there be an accident. They also added that the City of Perry at one point added the road to its work plan to pave, but would only do so if all of the property owners agreed to deed their Please see page 3Georgia-Pacic Senior Vice President of Cellulose and Containerboard Manufacturing Michael Tuchalski will share his companys vision for its Taylor County operation during the Chamber of Commerces annual banquet set Friday, Feb. 28.

Editors Note: The following is the continuation of a history of Taylor County written by the late June Parker McLeod, an educator and avid local historian. It is featured on a web site highlighting Perry and Taylor County history (https://sites.google.com/site/ taylorcountyhistory/). The rst ofcial post ofce in the town of Perry was under the name of Rose Head. The established date was Feb. 23, 1869. There are several stories about how the town came to be named Rose Head. One story says that roses grew abundantly on the banks of Spring Creek and the ofce itself was located at the head. Another story said that the ofce was named in honor of the postmasters wife whose name was Rose Head. In the confusion of reconstruction, on Dec. 4, 1874, Second Assistant Postmaster General John L. Barett wrote to the Postmaster at Rose Head, Taylor County, inquiring if Perry, the new county seat, was the local name for Rose Head. Postmaster Henry Tillman, the fth Union postmaster at Perry, wrote back that Perry and Rose Head was one and the same place. By some mistake the post ofce was named Rose Head when it should have been named Perry, because Perry is the county seat of Taylor County, Fla. A map of 1868 in the State Library at Tallahassee gives Rose Head as the county seat but the name Perry is placed in parenthesis under the Rose Head name. The local ofce ofcially became Perry on May 28, 1875. This change was made in Washington. Allen OQuinn, appointed Feb. 23, 1869, was the rst Union postmaster at Rose Head and was succeeded by Jesse Colson, Thomas York, B. F. McCollister and then Tillman. Tillman was succeeded by Thomas J. Faulkner, Preston D. Woods, and Thomas W. Lundy again. Thomas W. Lundy was the rst postmaster to serve for a substantial length of time. Lundys successors were David P. Morgan, James H. Lundy, L. M. Caswell, and Thomas W. Lundy who served this time from December 1922 until October 1933. The poastmasters who succeeded Lundy were Lester George, J. Poe George, J. Powell Puckett, Virginia D. Puckett, Henry A-2 Perry News-Herald February 21-22, 2014 Looking Back February 21-22, 2014 Remember when...By ANTHONY L.

The photo was taken around 1950, when he was about 12 years old. A school teacher and her mother came through, stopped to buy a watermelon and she asked if she could take my picture. She got my address and sent it (the photo) back to me, Sadler recalled. He and his brother, Ralph, both worked for Graham Bird at the time. My brother helped pack the melons into boxcars for shipping up North. A large melon was 15 and the small ones were 10. This was the last summer I worked the watermelon stand because we started growing tobacco the following year. The melons were known as cannonball watermelons. I was barely able to pick up the big ones by myself.

A-3 Perry News-Herald February 21-22, 2014 the help and support. I am just so grateful and honored. The care and love we have received from people who dont even know Robert, who have just heard his story, it is just incredible. They see him as a hero and just want to help him. He is a hero. Lundy said Robert is very alert, aware and coherent. He still cant talk because of the trach, but they are already starting to do a little therapy with him. He can mouth words and we are able to communicate. He asked me for a kiss and thats when I knew he was going to be alright. She said doctors have told them to expect an extended hospital stay in Gainesville, up to four months. They said they expect him to walk away fully recoveredbut it is going to be a long road to get there. I have been reading him some of the cards and thoughts people have sent to us and he loves it. When he does get to a point where he can fully realize what people have done and are doing for us, I believe he will feel the way we dograteful, thankful, humbled, amazed, overwhelmed. We just couldnt do this without all the support. Everyone is making sure we are comfortable and that dont have to worry about anything. The girls (the couples daughters, Emily, 7, and Allison, 2) are starting to miss him. We are all recovering from bronchitis and they want their daddy. I am trying to keep their schedule as normal as possible, keeping Emily in school and Allison on her routine. I am driving over here (Gainesville) during the week and we are all staying here together on the weekends. Robert never brought his job home with him. If he had a bad day at work, you couldnt tell. He would drop the job at the door and just come in and laugh and play with his girls. He never really talked about if something happened to him other than to tell me that, at the end of the day, he would always come him to his girls. And when he said girls, he means me too. Were all his girls. I know that is what is driving him now, coming home to his girls. about it for a good long time, I hope its the last time, Commission Chairman Malcolm Page said. This community has been in prayer for Robert since this event happened and he continues to be in our prayers. This is one of the most courageous acts I can ever remember a law enforcement person undertaking. I lay in my bed at night thinking what if I was in his position at the moment it happened. I want to commend the sheriff for providing some good training, for in situations like this, you just act. Page then declared that no vote was necessary for the certicate as it was an obvious thing. The rest of the commissioners offered their own words of appreciation and prayer for Lundy and his family. Sheriff L.E. Bummy Williams added his own praise, calling Lundy a humble person who would always to do what was asked of him. You see with the outpouring of support from the community as to what they think of him, here and in Steinhatchee. portion of the roadway to the city. This did not occur. Following a lengthy discussion, a fourth option was proposed, in which the county deeded--by quitclaim deed--any claim it has to the roadway to the City of Perry. Bishop noted that the city would not be required to accept the deed. Commissioner Jim Moody made a motion to pursue this option and Patterson seconded. The measure passed 4-0. Commissioner Pam Feagle abstained from the vote and the discussion after declaring she had a conict because she owns property adjacent to the roadway. Page then offered a motion to cease maintenance of the road with Moody offering a second. This measure also passed 4-0. for several years.

Continued from page 1Taylor County High Schools Rohan Patel was among Floridas top performing STEM students who were recently recognized as Sunshine State Scholars and given the opportunity to attend a twoday event in Orlando, Feb. 13-14. It was an event that could possibly change the course of their future as they learned why Florida is the best place to learn and pursue an exciting career, organizers said. Each school district throughout Florida selected its top 11th grade student based on academic achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). These students, along with their parents and a teacher chosen by each student, were invited to participate in the program. The Sunshine State Scholars program is sponsored by the Florida Education Foundation, in collaboration with the State University System of Florida, the Florida College System, and the Florida Department of Education. It began in 1997 to recognize excellence in mathematics and science. Among those being honored this year were 19 students from the small rural school districts participating in the FloridaLearns Stem Scholars Initiative for Gifted and Talented Students. The Sunshine State Scholars program also gave these STEM students the opportunity to meet directly with highly successful professionals from STEMrelated industries in Florida, and with recruiters from Floridas top colleges and universities. During the event, the students heard about special programs of study and industry internship opportunities, learned about some of the latest innovations and discoveries in STEM-related research, were inspired by personal success stories from leaders in Floridas STEM industry, and were actively recruited to become part of Floridas future talented workforce. The scholars also had the opportunity to meet with students from around the state who had similar interests in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

A-4 Perry News-Herald February 21-22, 2014 Living 121,000 are waiting Have you considered being an organ donor?By SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor For LeeAnn Rainey, the program on organ donation was more than informational. It was personal. Fourteen years ago, Rainey received both a kidney and a pancreas transplant. I was on the waiting list for 13 months, and on dialysis for eight of those months, Rainey said. The report, in hindsight, is fabulous: Ive had absolutely no problems whatsoever with my transplants in the 14 years that have followed. So it only follows that part of her gratitude spills over into wanting to help others. At the February meeting of the Perry Womans Club, she introduced Maria Copeland with Donate Life Florida, and the name pretty much states the mission of this organization: You have the power and the opportunity to donate life. Copeland showed a video entitled, Ray of Hope, which focused on a North Carolina student--whose name was Ray--who was tragically killed. In addition to the grief his parents were navigating, they learned that Ray had signed the registry to donate any organs upon his death. The Ray Family comes to learn, through a difcult journey, that the recipient isnt the only one who benets from organ donationsuch a donation can be the one, good thing to come out of a horrible death. Copeland spotlighted a couple of myths associated with organ donation: 1. If you sign the registry to be a donor, you may not get the same level of medical care. In a word, False, she says. Only when death is declared, or death is imminent, is the organ recovery service contacted. It does not compromise your medical care. 2. If you agree to be an organ donor, your family cant have an open funeral service. Again, Copeland dispels the myth. Its simply not true, she said. Families are still able to have the kind of service they prefer; it does not change that. Currently, in the United States, 121,000 people are awaiting transplants, Copeland says. Twenty die every day, waiting for a transplant. Others have been on the list for as many as 10 years. At the Perry Womans Club, she and Rainey joined forces to urge members to consider registering to be an organ/tissue donor. Although the opportunity is offered every time you renew your drivers license, an individual can sign up anytime at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org. Help somebody else, Copeland urged. Give life to somebody else. LeeAnn Rainey, right, of Perry, a transplant recipient, joined forces with Maria Copeland, left, of Donate Life Florida to promote organ donation at the last Perry Womans Club meeting. 50 years Saturday is Horners golden anniversary; celebration March 1 Leonard and Jean Horner will have been married 50 years on Saturday, Feb. 22. The couple will be honored with a golden anniversary celebration on March 1 hosted by their three sons, Marty, Gary and Scott, and their daughter, Joni, as well as their families, at the First Baptist Church.

A-6 Perry News-Herald February 21-22, 2014 Religion Jakubco marks 50th anniversary of ordination Father Bernie Jakubco, MSC, pastor at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church on Byron Butler Parkway, is currently celebrating the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. Father Bernie, 76, was born in Lansford, Pa., in 1937. He entered high school seminary in 1951 at age 13 and was ordained as a priest on Feb. 2, 1964. After a semester teaching seventh and eighth grade science in 1964, he was assigned overseas to Papua New Guinea for almost seven years. He says one of the most memorable event in his years of priesthood happened at the leper colony, which was his base of operations for two years. At the Catholic Mass there during Holy Week, he had the privilege, of symbolically washing the feet of six leper patients. That ritual recalled for him what Jesus did at the Last Supper. If asked to name his major accomplishment in Papua New Guinea, he will point to opening the door to adapting the rituals of the church to the distinctive customs, rituals, symbols, music and language of the Melanesian people. Jakubco was the churchs Chairman for Liturgy of the whole country and a member of the national translation committee for Catholic rituals. He is familiar with 8 languages. His anniversary celebration started with a Holy Mass at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 2. It was attended by Holy Bishop Gregory Parkes of Pensacola-Tallahassee Diocese and the Rev. Fr. Raymond Diesbourg, MSC, the Superior Ofcer of the Sacred Heart Missionary Order. A catered dinner at the parish hall followed, with out-of-town friends and parishioners joining in the celebration of this milestone in Jakubcos life as a priest. He has served in Perry for nearly six years, also rendering service as volunteer chaplain for Taylor Correctional Institution (TCI). In 2010, he was named TCIs Volunteer of the Year. Pictured at the milestone celebration for Father Bernie Jakubco, are: (from left) the Rev. Fr. Raymond Diesbourg, MSC, Bishop Gregory Parkes (Pensacola-Tallahassee Diocese), Jakubco and Fr.

The ball is split into four different phases with phase one being the receiving line, phase two was the mixer, phase three was the dinner/speech and phase four was a dance that wrapped up at 11 p.m., 1SG (ret.) Eddie Smith said. The theme colors were purple, blue and white. The dance theme was Starry Night and the theme song for this year was, Stay, by Rhianna. As usual the Military Ball turned out to be a very memorable night for all those who attended. This years guest speaker was Mrs. Karen Cate, and to show our appreciation to her, she was presented with a plaque. A big hooah goes out to Rachael Maddox for hard work in helping decorate the hall. The Cadet Battalion also sends out a big thank you to all the boosters and sponsors, including Goodmans BBQ for the delicious food.
