A-10 News Forum Deputy Robert Lundy has lost sight in his right eye, which may be permanent. His wife, Kelly, shared the diagnosis this week and asks for continued prayers on her husbands behalf. We are trusting in God. I know his (Roberts) vision is going to come back, Kelly said Thursday afternoon. There is also some damage to his left eye and they dont know how that will progress. The doctors explained that the injuries were due to the trauma his body has endured, much like his kidneys not working. When they told us about his eyesight, Robert just squeezed my hand and mouthed to me that everything was going to be alright. His body has been traumatized, but his spirit is still therehes ghting 100 percent. Hopefully, two years from now this will all be a memory. I am not giving up hope. It is just going to be amazing what the Lord will do for Robert. Lundy sustained a gunshot wound during a workplace shooting that occurred at a local car dealership on Feb. 5. The doctors said his progress would be baby steps and thats what they meanits baby steps but he is still moving forward. The girls (Robert and Kellys two daughters) got to see him and visit with him for a little while, and that made them both very happy. We still appreciate everything that has been done for us and know we couldnt get through this without all the support from our families, friends and the community. Lundy remains at Shands Hospital in Gainesville recovering, on a ventilator and undergoing dialysis. He is resting and doing breathing exercises. The skin graft is doing well, Kelly said. A number of events supporting the family have been and continue to be organized. A new shipment of wristbands supporting Team Lundy is available at the Perry Police Department and t-shirts are also available from local supporters. Deputys eyesight compromised by severe trauma As Robert Lundy continues his recovery, it is the small steps that mean so much, his wife, Kelly said. On Thursday, she slipped his wedding ring on his nger for just a short time and was happy to see his tan line still on his hand. PPD investigators recognized for contributions43 arrested by DEA task forceThe U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will recognize two investigators with the Perry Police Department Tuesday for their roles in a task force operation that led to the arrest of 43 federal defendants and the seizure of assets valued at more than $120,000. In a letter to Chief Vern Clark, Special-Agent-inCharge Mark R. Trouville commended the hard work and dedication of Det. Sgt. Gene Franklin and Inv. Dwight Norris. The men were part of the (DEA) Tallahassee ofces Organize Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Operation King of the Trap. The operation targeted a drug trafcking organization that was responsible for distributing in excess of 100 kilograms of cocaine and 500 pounds of marijuana in the north central panhandle of Florida between 2009 and mid-2013. In addition to the arrest of the 43 federal defendants, the operation also saw the seizure of nine kilograms of cocaine, one kilogram of crack cocaine, three pounds of marijuana and 220 grams of methamphetamine.

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 people began to turn their attention to agriculture and the proper development of the county. The soil was rich and generous and there was an abundance of good hammock land. The soil of the hammock lands is a dark sandy loam, on which leaves have been decaying for ages. The pinelands were good. The soil of one class of pineland is black and of another grayish color, and goes to the depth of from one to two feet. The very poor pineland borders the coast. There was a variety of timber. The timber of the hammock was water oak, post oak, hickory, magnolia, bay, wahoo, red bay, sassafras, maple, red oak, white oak, live oak, holly, ivy, cherry, prickly ash and cedar. The pineland there had some of the nest yellow pine land in the state. In 1873 one of the greatest drawbacks was the remote or inconvenient market. It was 15 miles to the nearest point on the railroad from Shady Grove. The inhabitants of the southern end of the county had communication by water with Cedar Key and St. Marks by means of small boats. There were several water courses navigable for small boats but it had not been advanced at that time. There were small sheries along the Gulf coast of the county where mullet, and red sh were caught every winter. There were several mineral springs in the county, the medicinal properties of which had been declared of value. There was a sulfur-iron spring on the Econna River, on Rocky Creek a sulfur spring known as Hampton Springs and on Blue Creek there is a Chalybeate spring, the water of which is highly benecial to debilitated and nervous people. (Note: chalybeate is dened as containing iron salts and having a taste of iron.) Since the war the people had turned their attention to farming and were becoming more settled in their mode of life and were building up churches, school houses and they were ready to welcome all that came to make their homes. In 1873 the schools were beginning to ourish and were appreciated by the people.A-2 Perry News-Herald February 28-March 1, 2014 Looking Back Feb. 28-March 1, 2014 Remember when...By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comDont worry, youll grow out of it The only thing I had to fear was fear itself. So I lived in constant fear. If it went bump in the night or day, I was scared of it. If it walked on four feet, or if it crawled, And, if I saw or heard something no one else could, or if everyone else saw or heard it but I couldnt, you can bet I Be brave, my mother would tell me. And I was brave except for when it came to things that I was scared of, which was everything under the sun, moon and our roof. I was scared of cats. There were four who terrorized the house and that my brothers used to terrorize me. I was scared of dogs. We had three that I was scared of except for when they met me up the road to walk me past the other vicious neighborhood dogs. I was scared of ghosts, but my mom made me sleep with my baby brother Tony who used to wake up in the middle of the night pointing at and talking to an old woman no one else could see. Antmar, she said tell you hey, the three-year-old brother would say. Momma, Id scream from under the cover. Hes talking to the lady again! My mother would rush in the room and explain that my brother was talking to his grandmother who had died months before he was born. This was very little consolation because, even though it was his grandmother, he was still talking to someone I could not see or hear. When my brothers and my uncles teased me about being so scary, my mother would tell me, Dont worry about it. Youll grow out of it. I certainly hoped so. In hindsight, and this is just my opinion, if my mother and grandmother had removed many of the things I was scared of--put Tony in another room and gotten rid of the cats, dogs and uncles--I may not have lived in constant fear. The other day, my uncles were teasing me about how scary I was as a child. And, youre still scary, my Uncle Walter said. I knew he was going to bring up that night again. And he did. What about that night a couple of years ago when you came home and I scared the crap out of you, he recalled. He turned to my other uncle and said, Willie, I looked out the window and saw his car coming up the road, so I hurried up and turned off the television and the other lights. Then I went and stood behind the door and waited for him. When he unlocked the door and stepped inside, I reached and grabbed his shoulder, and he just stood there hollering. They both rolled over laughing. I, personally, didnt think it was that funny. If I walk into a dark house and somebody grabs me from behind, what am I supposed to do? I asked a little agitated after having to explain myself for the hundredth time. Anything but stand there hollering, Willie suggested. admitted that I was scared to death that night, I might not have to hear this story again. So, I said, Okay, I was scared. I told you, Walter said, Youre still one scary He was right. I am still scared of things that go bump in the night and day. Im still scared of things that walk still scared of things that I cannot see or hear but others can. And vice versa. But, like my mother said, one day Ill grow out of it. Im still growing. of Taylor County History T h e TIME AND TEMPERATUREBeginning today, the newspaper article read, residents of Perry and Taylor County will be able to get the time and temperature just by dialing 584-3333.

The bid committee noted that on one of the projects, the lowest bid from Certied Roong and Construction exceeded the maximum limit of $25,000 allowed by the Local Housing Assistance Plan, but the homeowner and contractor agreed to accept a lower amount of $24,750 by reducing the scope of work. The committee included County Grants Coordinator Melody Cox and Jay Moseley, consultant for Meridian, which was hired by the county to manage its housing assistance program. Last summer, the county learned it was receiving $350,000 in SHIP funds.

These e-mails are bogus and may contain a link directing a consumer to a site containing malware. as ofcial utility employees, demand immediate past due payments with a prepaid credit card or MoneyPak card to prevent service disconnection. phishing scam, scammers advised utility customers that a third party--in most cases the federal government or President Obama--would pay their utility bills through a new federal program. energy marketing scheme targeted utility customers to offer fake energy audits.
