A-10 News Forum Swampwater Shootout Multi-million dollar drug operation busted King of the Trap de-throned An intense, multi-agency investigation has brought down a drug trafcking organization that distributed millions of dollars worth of powder cocaine and crack throughout the north central panhandle area, including Taylor County. U.S. Attorney Pamela C. Marsh announced Wednesday the culmination of an organized crime drug task force operation dubbed King of the Trap that included the arrest and prosecution of 43 federal defendantshalf of whom were Perry residents. (The identities of the defendants were not released.) According to Marsh, the organization was responsible for distributing in excess of 100 kilograms of cocaine and 500 pounds of marijuana between 2008 and 2013. A successful prosecution of the defendants led to prison sentences ranging from three years of probation to life imprisonment. We really were able to climb the ladder so to speak with this investigationworking from street level dealers up, Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce Capt. Ron Rice said. Perrys kings were leveled.

The campaign was a challenge this year, but our team worked diligently and opened several new accounts, Campaign Associate Glenda Hamby said. Some accounts are up, some at and some down, but I think that reects the economy. Our community understands United Way works for Taylor County: money that is raised here stays here to deliver much needed services. Mark Wiggins, who chaired our campaign, did a great job making presentations and leading our campaign efforts. Employees from GeorgiaPacic were on hand recently to place the latest slices on the United Way tree meter at the County Courthouse. According to Hamby, the nal slice will be placed on the display by local students once they return from spring break in recognition of their fundraising efforts this year. Local campaign representatives joined those from seven other counties last week in Tallahassee for the United Way of the Big Bends nale event, during which several Taylor County campaigns and volunteers were recognized. Longtime campaign board member and former co-chairman Scott Barton was named an outstanding neighboring county volunteer. For the past eight years, Scott has been an active member of the Taylor Campaign team and has co-chaired United Ways investment team process and the county commissions distribution of its human services grant funds, Hamby said. Also, he has co-chaired the county campaign and Buckeye Floridas, now Georgia Pacic, campaign. Currently, Scott, an engineer at Georgia Pacic, serves on their campaign team. He is a tireless worker in the community and is a big supporter of United Way in Representatives from Georgia-Pacic joined United Way volunteers to help place the latest slices on the fund-raising meter at the corner of the courthouse. The campaign recently wrapped up its efforts with a grant total of $261,000 raised in Taylor County.

By CAROLYN WINNINGHAMTaylor County Master GardenersBefore there was Almanac.com, the phases of the moon guided farmers for thousands of years. Each generation learned from those before, and entire civilizations ourished or disappeared based on food availability. The changing moons appearance caused by the different angles at which it is lighted by the sun has inuenced men from the earliest times. Many farming activities came to be associated with certain phases, since plants grow bigger and quicker, producing more if they are in tune with the moon. Astronomers studied the placement of known planets and constellations; the astronomical moons place is the actual position of the moon within the constellations on the celestial sphere. FIRST QUARTER: right half of moon is lighted. FULL MOON: entire disc is lighted. LAST QUARTER: left half of moon is lighted. NEW MOON: moon invisibleit is between earth and sun.Terms to know:Light of the moon: moon is waxing; increasing light after new moon and up to full moon. Dark of the moon: decreasing light after full moon and up to new moon. Todays farmers and gardeners have access to a variety of information, maybe from an old-timer who just know when to do specic tasks, or through the help of an almanac. The Old Farmers Almanac, rst published in 1792 in Boston, is the oldest continuing publication and has a very reliable weather forecasting reputation. Robert B. Thomas, the founder and publisher, is credited with developing the still-secret formula for weather prediction. A-3 Perry News-Herald March 21-22, 2014 Living Gardening What does the moon have to do with it? Almanac Moon Phase gardening activities: PLANTING: Increasing Light: New Moon, First Quarter: Plant above-ground vegetables, owers, lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, cauliower and grains. First Quarter-Full Moon: Plant beans, peas, eggplant, melons, peppers, squash and tomatoes. Decreasing Light: Full Moon-New Moon Plant below-ground crops: potatoes, turnips, radishes and perennials. PRUNING: Prune between the new and rst quarter to promote growth, between full moon and last quarter to limit growth. FERTILIZING: Between new moon and rst quarter. TRANSPLANTING: On full moon or right after. IRRIGATING: Between rst quarter and full moon. HARVESTING: Between rst quarter and full for above-ground crops; between full and last quarter for below-ground crops. WEEDING: Between last quarter and new. COMPOSTING: Between full moon and new. DESTROYING PESTS: Between rst quarter and full. Bloodworth used fronds of Spanish Bayonet to begin this design which also featured hurricane grass from their ponds, dwarf nandina and blooming azaleas. You see yard debris? Bloodworth sees design opportunities By SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor As Mina Bloodworth added a needle holder to a dish she could also use for serving pasta, she said, I tend to do things off-center; God just made me that way. The holder wasnt in the center of the arrangement. The owers werent specially ordered from Hawaii. Just look around in your yard, she said. Youll be amazed at what you nd. Bloodworth proceeded to design arrangement, after arrangement, for Perry Garden Club members on Wednesday, using dwarf nandina, and coontie foliage, forsythia and variegated hydrangea, pine boughs and river birch stalks, winged elm and blooming azaleas. Although she is an accredited National Flower Show judge and design instructor, Bloodworth, of Madison, differentiated between traditional design and creative design. In creative design, there are no rules or restrictions; you get to be completely creative. And she was, including members in the process, as well as the questions and answers. For the workshop, members brought potential design opportunities from their own yards, so that the staging area overowed with magnolia, bamboo, palm fronds and branches from loquat trees. She also encouraged members to look around their homes for containers not typically designated as vases which could make good bases for oral designs. Just wash them really good before you eat out of them again, she said. From the storm to the spotlight: this arrangement began with stalks of river birch which Bloodworth gathered after recent storms in Madison. She added forsythia, coontie and variegated hydrangea.

MOON Continued from page 3The astrological moons place is according to the signs of the zodiac whose 12 segments were named more than 2000 years ago after constellations in each area.

Taylor County Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Spradley said about a foot of water was over the end of Northeast River Road in Steinhatchee, but the ooding was not threatening any homes at this time. The Econna River was at 11.11 feet Thursday afternoon (ood stage is 11 feet) and was expected to crest soon, although the county did not have a denite forecast time, Spradley said. The Aucilla River at Lamont remained above minor ood stage as of Thursday afternoon as well. Spradley said most of the damage to county roads resulted from ooding streams and creeks due to the heavy rainfall, with as much as four and a half inches falling in some areas. County road crews have either repaired or are in the process of repairing six culverts which washed out on various county roads. According to Spradley, as of Thursday afternoon, the only county road still impassable was Jody Morgan Grade, where two culverts washed out. Were continuing to monitor the situation and keep a close eye on the rivers, he said. The NWS is forecasting a slight chance of rain Saturday, with higher chances arriving on Monday. God. I want to give God all the glory. I am not a hero, I am a man God used that day. Thanks to everyone. Love you all.
