The families of Larry Hunter and Mike Hunter (a son and grandson, respectively) sponsored the monument. Shown above are (l to r) Louise Hunter, wife of the late R.V. Hunter, Jennifer (Hunter) Holden, Mindy (Veal) Hunter, Robert Hunter, Sandy and Mike Hunter, and Barbara and Larry Hunter.All in the family Price, White chargedTwo shot, stabbed in home invasionConcentrated efforts by ofcers and investigators led to the swift arrest of two men wanted for a violent home invasion and robbery that happened late Wednesday night and left two Perry residents with life-threatening gunshot and stab wounds. A six-year-old child was also present at the residence but was not harmed; however, reports indicate the child witnessed a portion of the incident. Suspect Jordan White, 19, was in custody less than four hours after the reported 10 p.m. forcible break-in at a home on Glenn Street (located off Warner Avenue). Six hours after that, the second suspect in the case, Aaron Price, 26, was also in custody. White is charged with home invasion robbery and attempted rst degree murder. He is being held without bond at the Taylor County Jail. Price is charged with Project Freedom: City to consider incentive package TuesdayThe Perry City Council will hold a special meeting next week to consider a series of proposed incentives designed to draw a company, known currently as Project Freedom, to Taylor County, potentially bringing with it as much as $220 million in capital investments. The meeting will he held Tuesday, April 15, at 4 p.m. in the city council meeting room. According to City Manager Bob Brown, the president of the company is expected to be in attendance and is expected to make a short presentation and take questions from council members. He added that he does not expect the council to make a nal decision on the proposals at the meeting. On Monday, the Taylor County Commission voted 4-0 to approve ad valorem property tax incentives totaling 95 percent of the increased property values resulting from the companys capital investments for a period of 10 years. The approval was contingent on the A culvert washed out at Strickland Bridge in Spring WarriorRains leave washed-out roads, clogged culverts, standing waterWith Mondays storm dropping as much as seven inches of rain on much of central and southern Taylor County, county crews are still working to repair damage to roadways and a number of residents still have large amount of water in their yards. Water is standing where it usually collects, but the ground is so saturated, its staying around longer, Taylor County Emergency Management Director Dustin Hinkel said Thursday. The worst damage to county roads was a culvert washing out at Strickland Bridge in Spring Warrior and Hinkel said the county was working the issue as well as others which have developed since the rain. We replaced a lot of culverts last month, Hinkel said, noting that there were not many wash-outs reported this week, although they discovered several clogged culverts. Several homes on Beach Road still have water around them, and large areas of low-lying areas are completely underwater. Additionally, several residents on East Ellison Road are reporting water in their yards for the rst time since living there. Until the water goes down, were doing our best to maintain the countys Jury rules in favor of school district A jury found in favor of the Taylor County School District this week in a federal lawsuit led by a former student at Taylor Technical Institute (TTI) alleging she was discriminated against based on race and disability. The jury issued its ruling Wednesday, April 9, in the trial presided over by Judge Robert L. Hinkle in the Tallahassee Division of the Northern District of Florida in United States District Court. The jury found that the plaintiff, Kim L. Harris, did complain about racial discrimination on the day in question but did not make the complaint in good faith. The district was therefore ordered to pay nothing to the plaintiff and the case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning the plaintiff is barred from ling another case on the same claim. She had asked for Mosquito control in high demand With so much standing water around the county, mosquito season has begun early and ofcials are already being inundated with calls requesting assistance from Taylor County Mosquito Control. County ofcials are asking those who need assistance to call mosquito control at (850) 838-3539. According to Assistant County Administrator Dustin Hinkel, state law requires justication for the disbursement of chemicals into the environment such as those used for mosquito spraying.

Editors Note: Local historian Henry McLeod continues to add stories, articles and photos to his website: Taylor County & Perry, Florida History (https:// taylorcountyhistory/). Among the latest are recollections about local bottling companies which once operated here. What I know about the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. Jules Martin moved to Taylor County in 1927 and opened a bottling company manufacturing a avored soft drink known under the brand of Martins Beverages. I can remember an orange and red soda water. In 1930 Mr. Martin added NuGrape and in 1939 PepsiCola was added to the product line. I think they may have bottled some other brands also, one I remember was Delaware Punch which was not carbonated. Marcus Parker was the plant manager and I remember him telling about a problem they had when they bottled Delaware Punch. It seems that the water pressure had to remain constant during the bottling of this drink so they had to be sure no one used the bathroom while the bottling line was running. Martin was joined in the business by his son, Harold, when he returned from duty after World War II. After Jules death in 1973, Harold continued to run the business until his death in 1983, at which time Harolds children took control of the business with Tyson Hicks as president. He continued running the business until 1986. In 1986 the Pepsi-Cola Metropolitan Bottling Company Inc. of Valdosta, Ga., bought the familyowned Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Perry, thus ending almost 60 years of Martin family ownership of the soft drink business. On a personal note I knew Mr. Jules Martin as I also attended the First Methodist Church. Mr. Martin was a very dignied and kind man, and I remember him wearing a white suit to church most Sundays. STONE TO KEYNOTE BUCKEYES ANNIVERSARYSenator Richard Dick Stone was slated to be the keynote speaker for the 25th anniversary celebration for Buckeye Cellulose.

WHITE going on 34 Boyd scene Many thanks to a sharp-eyed reader who saw Bottling company opened in 1927 On the morning of my 64th birthday, I want to wake up and feel 44. I want to wake up, look in the mirror, and ask myself, Are you sure youre 64? Dont laugh. Its possible. Jurleen Clayton felt that way when she woke up Sunday morning. I woke up feeling 34 not 44, shes going to correct me when she reads this. But dont get it twisted, I am 64 years old. Jurleen has never had any qualms about her age. For years, during shes announced her birthday in the local papers. This year was no exception. She placed two ads in the paper announcing her birthday. She even planned a Luau birthday party and invited everyone she knew. Ive known Jurleen since I was a child, when she and my father, Tyrone, became a couple and she told me she was my step mom. A few weeks ago, I spent the day doing my stepson duty of taking Jurleen to a dental appointment in Madison. When I pulled in the yard and blew the horn, Jurleen emerged from her house dressed like she was going to a Vogue magazine photo shoot. From the moment we stepped in the compliments at her and asking questions. I love your nails, one woman said. Where did you get them done? Another woman was enthralled by Jurleens sandals. Another asked about her hair. When Jurleen went back to see the dentist, the woman who was inquiring about Jurleens hair, turned and asked me, What is she to you? My step mom, I answered. The woman looked me up and down then asked, Well, how old are you and your daddy? An hour or so later, while we were at a shoe store, a man about my age walked up to the counter and stood beside me and Jurleen. Trying to feel us out, he asked me, Are you helping your sister shop? Before I could answer, Jurleen corrected him. Im not his sister, she said. Im his mom. The guy stepped back, looked me up and down then asked, If shes your mom, how old are you? Shes my step mom, I answered, and Im 49. He turned to Jurleen, but before he could ask, she answered, Ill be 64 in three weeks. What? he said stunned. You cant be Well, I am, she replied, cutting him off. As I stood there watching him admire Jurleen, I wondered why my age was being questioned in response to questions about her age. This bothered me all the way home. When I mentioned this to a friend, I got the answer that had eluded me. Since youre not supposed to ask a woman her age, my friend answered, they That was rude. Instead of making me feel self-conscious about my age, all they had to do was ask Jurleen and she would have told them, Im 63 going on 34.


A-3 Perry News-Herald April 11-12, 2014 Photographs by Amanda Clark There were lights shining all over our downtownBy SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor Green t-shirts emblazoned with Be a Light in Your Own Backyard descended upon downtown Perry last weekend for the launch of Project Backyard. How was the inltration received? Ive never been so proud of this small town, said Bonnie Elliott. Lights were shining all over. Ive also been truly blessed with the help we received, Elliott added. Dreams came true for my family today. Thanks so much. Workers came in force to install laminate oors in the home owned by Elliot and her husband, Jim. But they didnt stop there. We built a ramp for Pam Hileman, said Melissa Moody for Project Backyard. Ability First, which helps individuals with accessibility needs, funded the project in part, using United Way dollars that are collected here. In all, nearly 100 volunteers were dispatched. We weeded planters in the downtown area, sprayed weed killer in the sidewalk cracks and swept downtown blocks, Moody said. Two community cookouts were also held. At the City Park, we were pleased to work in conjunction with the Church of God (located on Highway 221) which was having a Community Fun Day. With them, we fed at least 200 people while worship/praise music played. We also had a cookout at Jerkins Park and really enjoyed playing basketball and games with the children who gathered there, Moody said. At least eight churches were represented Saturday, Moody guesses, but there could have been more. The effort is nondenominational and nobody takes roll. Main Street Perry is grateful to Project Backyard for serving our downtown area this past Saturday, said Tracey Smith, director. Revitalization of downtown will truly be a group effort and we appreciate their willingness to help serve our community. Weve received so much positive feedback about how great the area looks and every volunteer had a cheerful, servant heart. We look forward to more downtown projects in the future! The group had hoped to paint the exterior of Rosehead Junction but the humidity was just too highSherwin-Williams advised against it. So we cleaned the building really good, did some repairs even had a couple of electricians in the group who were able to x some lights. We still plan to paint it, Moody said, adding that the cost of the paint is being covered by a DREAM grant available through the City of Perry. Command central for the downtown effort was Rodney McKinleys Java Connection. The church he pastors, Northside Church of God, is also a sponsor for the efforts. But there are more. We need to thank our nancial sponsors who, along with the workers, make all this possible, Moody said. She named Kendall and John Cruce, Todd and Andrea Robertson, Lewis Moody, Mike Hart, Betty Lytle and Denise Herr. Amanda Clark served as photographer for the day, as did Jennifer Linton. Our objective is to unite the community, not to compete, Moody said. The lights were shining beyond the downtown area, too. The nursing home social was amazing, she said. We played Bingo and painted their ngernails they really loved the manicures, she added. That activity began at 10:30 a.m. at Marshall Health and Rehabilitation, and continued until 2 p.m. One lady said, No one ever comes to see me. I prayed to God to send me a friend, and then you showed up. Project Backyard intends to continue monthly projects in Perry, combining funding sources and workers on the rst weekends of each monthwhen possible, Moody said. We dont want to interfere with anything already planned in the community, so well stick to the rst weekend unless there is a conict. There are currently Project Backyard groups serving in Thomasville, Tallahassee and Wakulla.. Both pledges and workers are still needed in Taylor County. Moody can be reached by e-mail at or call 850-295-5827. If you think you might qualify for assistance from Ability First, Moody encourages you to contact Kevin Ogden at 850-5759621. A wheelchair ramp was one of seven projects accomplished in the community Saturday by volunteer labor through Project Backyard. while downtown crews cleaned up sidewalks. emery board.

A-4 Perry News-Herald April 11-12, 2014 Living Hows your spine? It matters, chiropractor declares By SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor Everyone sat up a little bit straighter when Dr. Dale French began speaking on posture at the Perry Womans Club meeting Wednesday. Posture is one of the best indicators of a persons health, she said, noting that while most medical examinations measure your blood pressure or assess your BMI, few look at posture. To French, the newest chiropractor in town, thats an oversight. For her, the decision to become a chiropractor can be traced back to her mothers headaches. My mom suffered from debilitating migraines which affected the whole family. We depended on mom to get us to soccer practice or to prepare our meals, but when she had a migraine, shed say, Its every man for himself. French noted that her mother tried every available option for treating migraines, including heavy medication. Nothing worked, until a friend introduced her mother to chiropractic treatment, and she found relief. She hasnt had a headache in over a year, French said. I was in high school then and I was convinced that this was the career I wanted. So French graduated high school in Virginia in 2011 and moved to Florida to attend Palmer Chiropractic College. She also met her future husband, Chad French, of Perry. I have been overjoyed and overwhelmed by the welcome Ive received in Perry, she said. For the Womans Club, her examples were easy to embrace: Suppose you were given a car that was going to be your one and only car for your whole life. If warning lights came on, would you ignore them, or make sure they were given attention? That, French says, is what your body is like. There are no normal symptomsthey always point to a deeper problem. Even minor symptoms can point to serious problems. If you have symptoms, dont ignore them. Find out whats wrong. Before handing out surveys for members regarding symptoms, French recalled a patient from her new practice, the Perry Spine Center. I had treated her for hip pain for months and after a wellness visit, she was leaving when she asked, You cant do anything for headaches, can you? Her 16-year-old daughter, who was a cheerleader, had been experiencing headaches for six months or more which were affecting her school work and her practice too. It turns out it was a misalignment in her neck, and within an hour of treatment, her headache was gone. As a disclaimer, French noted that all headaches arent caused by misalignment. But as a chiropractor, I look at your symptoms to see if there is a connection to the alignment of your spine or your posture. There is a strong connection between your immune system and your nervous system. Its never a bad idea to look closely at any symptoms of pain, ache or discomfort. French also noted that the spine works perfectly wellwithout attention until you trip and fall, or a child bumps into you, or God forbid, youre in a car accident. She displayed her model of a spine and showed how it was protected by vertebra. Then she compared it to a water hose. What happens when there is a kink in the hose? Its like that with the spine. Impulses must be able to ow freely and properly. In conclusion, French announced that she had blocked off seven hours in the next two weeks for members of the club to visit her at no cost and with no obligation. A question-and-answer session followed. Dr. Dale French, chiropractor, (center) is pictured with President Shawna Beach and Jeanne Raulerson of the Perry Womans Club, giving their best Vanna White tribute to her model of the human spine.

roads and meet peoples needs, Hinkel said, adding that they were working with residents on a variety of issues, including ooded wells. Emergency management staff assisted in the delivery of oxygen tanks to one disabled resident on Roy Freeman Road whose private drive was impassible. Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Spradley assisted the oxygen delivery driver to transport the tanks to the home, Hinkel said. We were happy to help. Area rivers are continuing to rise as well, but at a slower rate than earlier this week, he added. The Steinhatchee River is expected to crest on Monday. There is still water making its way to the rivers, Hinkel said. The Florida Forest Service (FFS) rain gauge in Perry recorded 5.3 inches of rain from the storm, while the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) gauge at Foley Tower recorded 5.73 inches. National Weather Service doppler radar recorded ve to seven inches across the most heavily affected areas.

According to the suit, led April 1, 2013, Harris was a student in TTIs cosmetology program from August to November 2011. Harris was injured in a 2009 car crash, making the requirement to stand two to three hours a day during the clinical portion of the program extremely painful, the suit stated. She requested a special chair but alleged one was never provided. According to the suit, on Nov. 7, 2011, Harris, who is African American, complained about a white janitor watching her, which she said made her uncomfortable due to a birth defect. The teacher allegedly told her that she couldnt talk to staff like that. The schools administrator was called to the room and Harris told him that she felt the teacher showed preferential treatment to the white students in the program, the suit stated. According to the suit, Harris was subsequently removed from the program. The school district was represented in the case by attorneys David McKinnon Delaney and Jamie Lynn Shideler, who were hired by the Florida School Board Insurance Trust, the districts liability insurance provider. Harris was represented by Jami McFatter Kimbrell and Marie A. Mattox. Mattox is also representing Perry City Council candidate Tonya Holton in her federal lawsuit against the City of Perry and City Manager Bob Brown.
