A-11 News Forum Its ofcial: Taylor needs a new primary school The Taylor County School District has crossed another hurdle in its efforts to secure state funding to replace Perry Primary School (PPS) after receiving word that the Florida Department of Education (DOE) site review team has certied the district as having a school in need. Superintendent Paul Dyal conrmed Thursday that his ofce received a letter from DOE stating that the committee has signed off on the districts need, allowing them to go before the DOEs Holtons granted more time for zoning change application Stacey and Tonya Holton have asked the citys Special Magistrate for a 90day extension in order to raise the estimated $1200 to $1300 needed to le a land use/zoning application for their property located off U.S. 27 East. The change would allow the couple to come into compliance with the citys land use/zoning regulations regarding horses on property located within city limits. Tonya Holton, who has announced her candidacy for the Perry City Council, is a former member of the citys Code Enforcement Board and a current member of its Planning & Zoning Board. The magistrate granted the couples request during a hearing held last week, code enforcement ofcials said. She also approved an application from two other landowners who were also cited for having horses on their property. The issue rst came to the forefront when former City Attorney Mike Smith led a code enforcement violation complaint against the Holtons late last year. The couple, championed by City Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton, sought to have the complaint voided, referencing actions taken by another seated council several years ago. That action was never followed through and subsequent councils adopted the same land development regulations Chicken Pileau benet dinner is a sell-out Thurs.Happy tears were shed Thursday when Deputy Robert Lundy, who has been moved out of ICU and into a regular room, was able to give his daughters birthday hugs. The girls, who share a birthday, turned eight and three. Lundy, who has seen several key improvements in the past weekincluding eating a Baconator from Wendys and requesting a glass of Roys sweet teacontinues on what doctors say will be a long road to recovery at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. The Taylor County deputy is also able to speak now and is more alert, his wife, Kelly, reported. Thursday was also the day of a chicken pileau dinner hosted by the Leon County Sheriffs Ofce on the Lundy familys behalf. Hundreds gathered for the event and dinners were sold out in less than two hours.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has approved a $328,000 grant for Taylor County to construct a sidewalk along Old Dixie Highway from Jefferson Street to Southside Park at Plantation Road, although work is not expected to begin until 2019 or 2020. County Grants Coordinator Melody Cox announced the award last week at the Taylor County Commissions meeting, adding that FDOT also approved extra funding on top of the $328,000 to install street lights along with the 1.53-mile sidewalk. According to Cox, design work is expected to begin in 2018. There is no local match required for the funding. FDOT Transportation Alternative Program applications are submitted ve to six years in advance, she said. The commission held two public hearings in October on the grant request, unanimously approving the project.. Last year, the county was awarded funding in the 2019 cycle for the construction of a 0.79 mile sidewalk along Green Street from Arena Street to Howard Street for foot trafc arriving at and leaving Taylor County Elementary School. Additionally, the county is set to receive funding for a trailhead at the Keaton Beach Coastal Park, as well as a multi-use trail/ Please see page 13 By ANGELA M. CASTEUCCI Staff writer Old Bead was as familiar a site around Shady Grove as his owner, Alderman (Auley) Carlton Hendry. The mule was Hendrys main way of getting around and, together, they were a distinctive pair between Beads rather round shape and Hendrys trademark shock of hair and long beard. The story goes that, one day, two of his older children saw Old Bead coming up to their house but didnt recognize the man riding him. One said to the other, Thats Pas mule, but that aint Pa! And that was the one and only time I ever knew of Daddy shaving his beard, Hendrys youngest daughter, Lydia Hendry Andrews, said. My sister (Nelda) and I helped him take care of his beard. Every Saturday we would trim his hair and wash and comb his beard. When bleach came out, we would bleach it--because he chewed tobacco or smoked a pipe--and cleaned him up so he would be ready for church on Sunday. The church, still in faithful service today, was named for Andrews grandfather, Robert McFail Hendry. That Robert McFail Hendry-the well-known Hendry patriarch whose roots run deep in Taylor County soil. The Hendry whose sons fought in the Civil War and returned home to establish families whose ties stretch far and wide. My father was the youngest son of Robert McFail Hendry and Martha (Carlton) Hendry. Martha was the daughter of John Carlton and Nancy Ann Alderman. Daddy was named for his grandparents on his mothers side. Daddy was born in 1861, the year the Civil War started. He had four brothers who served during the war: Sharp, Wright, Wesley and Thomas. Andrews was her fathers 18th and youngest child; she is the 100th (and only surviving) grandchild of Robert M. and Martha Hendry. She knows her family history is unique in many ways, the least of which being the age of her father when she was born. My father was 69 when I was born. He was 85 when I graduated high school. He was always an old man. At least, thats the way I remember him. Daddy--everybody called him Auley or Uncle Auley--was rst married to Mosea Baker (nicknamed Hon) Dec. 7, 1882. They had 11 children: Mary, Wesley, Eugenia, Sallie, Lovette Pearce (known as Doc), Leona, Ward, Ruby, Marvin, Please see page 3 Please see page 13 Please see page 13 (Photos by Sarah Weirick) (Center) Lydia Hendry Andrews riding Old Bead.

The proposal recognized the value of the tourist trade to the state of Florida and suggested improvements in the downtown area creating a mall area to lure tourists. The proposal also called for signage promoting U.S. 19 as a better choice than I-75 and I-10 for travelers headed to Tampa and St. Pete. Those tourists, in turn, would be directed to the downtown area for shopping and restaurants.SOMETIMES SIMPLE IS BESTCitizens Bank featured an advertisement in this weeks edition which was simple and direct.

Christopher Wade Poppell earned the George C. Wallace Leadership Scholarship at Troy State University in Troy, Ala. Editors Note: The following is the nal installement 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/). In 1902, The Suwannee and San Pedro Railroad from Live Oak reached the county and in early 1903 made connections with Perry. In 1900 Perry had about 100 people and 4 businesses but increased by probably 500 percent in population and 1000 percent in business development in the next ve years. Soon other railroads came and the growth of business and industry increased. The South Georgia and West Coast was built to Perry in 1904, the Live Oak, Perry and Gulf came early in 1906 and a branch of the Atlantic Coast Line built from Newberry in Alachua County was running trains into Perry before the end of 1907. The coming of these railroad lines helped turpentine farms and sawmills to prosper. This is all that June was able to get done before she got sick. I am sure she would have gone back and added additional information to what she had completed. ~Henry McLeodA-2 Perry News-Herald March 14-15, 2014 Looking Back March 14-15, 2014 Remember when...By ANTHONY L.

Julia and an infant (who died). Mosea died in 1923. It was believed she died from heartbreak. Their daughter, Ruby, was murdered in 1922 and her mother was heartbroken and apparently never recovered. Rubys murder marked a grim time in Taylor Countys history. The schoolteacher, who had red hair, was walking to town one Saturday afternoon when she was attacked. The train came by and discovered her body along the tracks. Several innocent men lost their lives as the search for the killers swept across the town. When the two men believed to be guilty were found, private citizens took the law into their own hands. It was a bad time. Daddy never talked about it. Other people told what I know about it. They said it nally came to a point where Daddy rode to town and stood on the courthouse steps and told everybody to go home and be peaceful. Daddy was very protective of all his girls, especially Nelda and me. We could not go anywhere alone or without an adult. Thats why I didnt go to college. He had already lost one daughter and wasnt going to lose another. We understood why he was so protective. Hendry married a second time in 1927, becoming stepfather to Arie Bailey McLeods ve children: Thomas, Elmer, Annie Mae, Pershing and Virginia. At the time Daddy was selling tombstones, and had gone all the way to Mosley Hall where my mom was living with granddaddy Bailey. I dont know if he was successful at selling the tombstones, but he was successful in getting a good wife. McLeods rst husband, the Rev. Andrew McLeod, had died at an early age. Daddy not only married my mom, he married a family. She had ve young children between the ages of ve and 15. Two more surprisesmy sister Nelda and myself, were added to the family, making a total of 18. Of those 18, only two survivemy sister, Virginia, who is 91 years young and myself. By then, Hendrys children from his rst family were grown and had families of their own. Some of my older sisters (from Daddys rst marriage) were actually a little older than my mother. My daddy and my (maternal) grandfather were about the same age and got along very well. I know that sounds different now, but that is just how it was then. My fathers older children always joked he married my mom so he would have children to work the farm. And there might be something to that, a little. Daddy went out to the elds everyday. We were all always busy. In addition to selling tombstones, Hendry was also a notary public. I remember people coming to our house to get married or to get him to witness legal documents. He always spoke to a lady in private to make sure she understood what she was signing. He also sold eyeglasses. But his primary occupation was farmer/ cattleman. The only farm equipment he owned was a horse, a mule, a plow and a hoe. The horse was for plowing, the mule was for plowing and riding. Daddy never went to the eld without his hoe on his shoulder. And when we went, we had a hoe or a bucket. There was always something to do in the eld. Plant and replant the corn after the crows helped themselves. Hoe corn, peanuts--whatever needed to be hoed. When the crops were ready for harvesting, it was time to gather and can and save everything we could for winter--peas, beans, corn, tomatoes, onions, okra, potatoes, peanuts and sugar cane for making syrup. Our nightly entertainment during the winter was shelling peanuts for seeds and planting. And of course, we had animals to care for chickens, hogs, the horse and Old Bead. We didnt have indoor plumbing or electricity, so we cooked on a wood stove and washed everything by hand. While it could be said Andrews mother lived an ordinary life as a mother and wife, she was an extraordinary woman with a seemingly endless well of know-how. She as a very good cook and taught us how to cook, really how to do everything from farming and gardening to nursing. She was the neighborhood nurse, if anybody needed help with sickness they came to her. When people died, she would she helped prepare them for burial. They called it layem out back then. She also helped deliver babies. I think we had biscuits with every meal. There was no such thing as leftovers, which was good because we didnt have a refrigerator. I think we had an ice box maybe at one time, but that was it. While my parents never held any titles like doctor, lawyer or preacher, they were godly people. My mother was Primitive Baptist before marrying my father and would attend what they called the Big Meeting held every fourth Sunday in August. We would go with her and I remember that men and women did not sit together, and the meetings were long, which was okay for adults, but children get hungry! Daddy was a faithful member of the Robert M. Memorial Church and, at one time, held the record of being a member for more years than anyone. I believe Sara Helen Steen may now hold that record. I cant talk about Daddy without sayings a few things about the church and how it was when I was growing up. Shady Grove was part of what the conference referred to as a charge, which meant one pastor was assigned to a charge. Our charge included seven churches: Fenholloway, Pine level, Boyd, Lake Bird, Shaw, Sirmans and Shady Grove. We would have preaching once a month, sometimes a morning service, sometimes an afternoon service. If it was a morning service, Daddy never failed to invite the preacher for dinner. Mama knew to always be prepared. Daddy didnt have a carnever owned one in his lifeso we walked to church. If the preacher went home with us, we had a ride home. Our only transportation was a mule and wagon. Daddy was a generous man. The Bible tells us to take care of orphans and widows. He did a good job of taking care of my Mama, a widow, with ve young children. Daddy was a righteous person. He believed in justice, treating everyone with respect and honesty. Especially to honor your elders. He taught us to say yes sir or yes mam and that children were to be seen, not heard. Therefore, I grew up to be quiet and timid. As Daddy aged and his health declined, Mama felt the need to have someone stay with her a night. They had no telephone, no car, no means of transportation or communication. In his later years, he would be found sitting in the rocking chair on the front porch, saying, Im ready to be dismissed. Alderman Carlton Hendry was dismissed Sept. 5, 1953. He was 92. A-3 Perry News-Herald March 14-15, 2014 special facilities committee in August to request the funding. Dyal said he will speak with the Taylor County School Board at their next meeting to discuss what steps the district will need to take prior to August. He previously has said that if the site review team signed off on the need for a new school, the next step in the process would be to hire an architect to develop plans and determine its cost. To move to that step, however, the district must either own the intended property or have a binder on a prospective property for the new school site, he added. In January, the school board agreed to allow Dyal to contact local real estate agents about potential properties, beginning his search near Taylor County Elementary School (TCES), which is the districts newest school and was also funded through the special facilities construction program. The site review committee visited PPS on Friday, Feb. 21, after listening to a presentation from Dyal on maintenance and safety concerns the district has with PPS, which was built in 1975. Included in the presentation were photographs of the current condition of the schools roof, such as leaks and indoor water damage. Additional issues raised by Dyal included the fact that the district has outgrown the school and there are nine portable classrooms at the site; the lack of a onsite kitchen, which necessitates food being cooked at Taylor County Middle School; the schools open design, which he called not conducive for learning; trafc concerns at the parent pick-up lot; and safety concerns over the school having too many entrances and exits. The district rst approached DOEs special facilities construction program for funding for a new school to replace PPS in 2009 and was told the school would be good for another four years. For TCES, the district received $8.5 million from the state in 2001-02 and contributed $4.4 million of its own funds. According to Dyal, the program requires districts to allocate revenues from their 1.5 mill capital improvement property tax for three years to a funded project. The district also received $10.2 million in state funding in 1991-92 through this program for the construction of Taylor County High School, providing $3.9 million in local funds.

Vogue XIII, Inc., is planning its 2014 Father-Daughter Dance for Saturday, March 29, from 6 until 9 p.m. at the Catholic Parish Hall. Titled, A King and His Princess, the event focuses on the importance of fathers and their daughters having strong, healthy relationships, said Sondra Shaw for the group, noting that those relationships provide the foundation and guidance that young women need to become productive citizens in the community.

Please contact a member of Vogue XIII, Inc., to purchase tickets. All proceeds go toward the organizations scholarship program.Garden Club goes battyThe Garden Club of Steinhatchee took a eld trip to the Lubee Bat Conservancy in Gainesville. This was an interesting and informative trip, as we learned about fruit bats and their habitats, said Sue Guilbeau for the group. We were shown a power point presentation that gave us insight into these lovable animals. Yes, lovable, Guilbeau said. Healthy ecosystems depend on fruit and nectar bats that pollinate owers and disperse seeds. These bats are among the least studied and most threatened in the world. We were taken to the cages where the bats are housed and given a wonderful tour. We also had the opportunity to enter the cages to take pictures and see the animals up close. They were as curious of us as we were of them, she added. Following the tour, the group enjoyed lunch and shopping in the Gainesville area. By FLORRIE BURROUGHS Shady Grove columnist Donaldson Bridge Meeting Citizens met with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and county ofcials on Feb. 26 to discuss widening of the Donaldson Bridge that crosses the Econna River on Ira L. Smith Road (County Rd. 14-A). Citizens were unanimously against widening the bridge but asked that the bridge be repaired or replaced and kept as a one-way rather than changed to a new two-lane bridge. County Manager Jack Brown said he will go to Jacksonville and discuss the communitys desires with FDOT. Once he has done that, another community meeting will be set. Fellowship Cemetery Clean-Up Fellowship Cemetery Cleanup will begin again on the rst Saturday of April and continue monthly on the rst Saturday of each month through October.

Anyone interested in making a monetary donation to the cemetery fund can mail it to Fellowship Cemetery Fund, P. O. Box 587, Shady Grove, FL 32357. Punxsutawney Phil was right! Its good to see the grass turning green, and owers and plants beginning to make their appearance. I am spending these nice days in the yard pulling weeds and raking. Hopefully, the extreme cold days are past for this year. My pecan tree has no buds yet, and I have been told that when the pecan tree begins to bud, winter is ofcially over. I must confess that Punxsutawney Phils Feb. 2 prediction for six more weeks of winter was right on. One more for the famous groundhog, zero for me.Tobacco farmingFarming has long been a part of the lives of many in Shady Grove. In the past, most families grew tobacco. From the preparation of the land, planting the tobacco, to taking it to sell, it was a family affair. Many times the family could not do it alone and others were hired to get the job done. When the tobacco was ready to harvest, a crew would be hired to crop the tobacco which would be brought to the barn in a sled pulled by a mule or a tractor and there we tied it on a tobacco stick. I never graduated to stringer, the one who actually tied the tobacco onto the stick. I was a hander. I remember picking up three leaves of tobacco, and making sure all the ends were fairly even before handing it to the stringer. We would start early in the morning and work all day long. I remember late in the day when we were growing tired, my Grandpa Tedder would come and stand beside us encouraging us to continue. After the tobacco was cured in a barn, it was taken off the sticks and neatly tied in a burlap sack. I remember going to the tobacco sale with my family. Our tobacco would be in a room and the buyers would come by. Sometimes the price was barely enough to have made it worthwhile The greenest thumbs in Steinhatchee recently traveled to Gainesvilles Lubee Bat Conservancy VOGUE XIII, INC.FatherDaughter Dance planned March 29The descendants of William Henry Grubbs will gather Saturday, March 15, for the 48th Grubbs Family Reunion at Veterans Park in Perry.
