A-10 News Forum IRON MAN Sammy Agner served 16 years on the Taylor County School Board. The U.S. Army veteran has been power lifting for more than two decades and has long welcomed local student athletes at his Barn Yard Gym. Many of the students scrawled personal messages on the support beams and rafters of the former horse stable. Agner and his family recently expanded the gym to a larger barn and have branched out to include a CrossFit workout program.Agner hopes Barn Yard Gym will help athletes learn personal strength matters--on and o the eldBy ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Staff writer Taking the lead comes naturally to Sam Agner. In his high school days, he set the standard on the football eld and at the track. He was not only a team player, but a team leader. Sports, and the coaches who got the best out of their players by expecting only the best from them, helped shape him into the man he would become, he says. Ive always been in sports. Billy Pillow was my little league coach. I recognized that sports can be a pathway to a better way to live. What I learned from playing football and having coaches like Coach Burgess helped tremendously when I got in the Army--Id say it probably saved my life, Agner said. You cant coach somebody without guring out what it takes to reach them to make them stay and play. C.T. Burgess didnt put up with no foolishness. He worked us hard. And it paid off. When I was in the Army going through basic (training) and Army Ranger school, the things I learned from him really helped me a lot. Today, Agner is working to pass on that same philosophy to a new generation of players. It all started in an old horse barn nestled under a sprawling oak tree in the far corner of Agners front yard. Ive always worked out, but a few years ago I started working out at the house. Id pick up pieces of weightlifting equipment here and there, and put it out in the old barn. I took out a stall and it pretty much went from there. I started power lifting when I was in my early 40s. Billy Pillow joined me and hed come out there and work out with me. Pretty soon we started having kids, who couldnt afford a gym, coming out and working with us. I probably had six to seven thousand pounds of plates. Benjye Tuten made me a squat rack, and it grew from there. The kids coming to workout at the old barn included football players Please see page 3 County looks to state for help with ooding Citing the severe weather which moved across the Florida Panhandle this week as well as the large amounts of rain which have already impacted the area, Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday declared a state of emergency for 26 counties, including Taylor. Local ofcials are hopeful that the declaration will open new avenues to secure assistance for Taylor County residents dealing with ooded properties and homes. The county has been under a local state of emergency for the past two weeks as ofcials continue to respond to the widespread ooding. The state declaration includes the following counties: Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Washington, Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf, Liberty, Franklin, Gadsden, Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor, Hamilton, Suwannee, Lafayette, Dixie, Columbia, Gilchrist, Levy and Alachua counties. The State Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee was also activated Wednesday to level two in response to the severe weather and ooding in the Florida Panhandle. This latest storm, which brought as much as 20 inches of rain to Pensacola on Tuesday, spared Taylor County the worst of its effects, with the rainfall as of Thursday mostly falling Gov. Scott declares state of emergency in 26 counties Please see page 3School district seeks answers to questions about new state examWith local students continuing to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), district ofcials are already working to learn what they can about the exam which will replace it next year. Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart announced in March that the state had selected the not-for-prot American Institutes for Research (AIR) to develop a new test to replace the FCAT 2.0 exams beginning with the 2014-15 school year. The test will be based on the states new Florida Standards, which were approved earlier this year based on the Common Core curriculum. The new assessment will measure each childs progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input, Stewart said. This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize exibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our students to analyze and think.

GET YOUR BAR OF IVORY SOAP!The 25th anniversary of Buckeye Cellulose was declared in large headlines, with a photo showing Nancy Ferrell, George Ellis, Pat Coker, Len Woodward and Rachel Green examining a set of anniversary crystal which would be presented to each Buckeye family. Since Buckeyes 25th anniversary coincided with Procter and Gambles 100th anniversary of manufacturing Ivory soap, families would also receive a commemorative cake of the soap which has long been a standby in the homes of America. U.S. Senator Dick Stone was scheduled to bring the keynote address for the anniversary celebration which would begin with a Pioneer Breakfast at the Perry Elks Lodge, leading to a six-hour picnic at Forest Capital Park including musical entertainment by Fahrenheit Fever.BACKGROUND INFORMATIONThe article heralding Buckeyes anniversary looked back to its beginnings when Buckeye Cotton Oil Company applied for, and was granted, a defense necessity certicate. Soon thereafter, newspaper headlines declared the arrival of a $20 million pulp mill. In this edition, published in 1979, the article continued, Since that time, Buckeye has grown into the huge Foley mill which sends paper pulp products all over the world. It is the largest industry in the Big Bend area, with more than 1000 employees and a payroll of more than $22 million annually.WEDDING BELLSTeresa Yvonne Summers and Milton Jay Moon Jr. became man and wife in an April 20 ceremony at Grace United Methodist Church.

By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comSee you in Vegas The Class of 1982 is at it again. First, there was the 30-year reunion weekend in October 2012. Then there was the 30-year reunion cruise to the Bahamas in November 2012. And nally, there was the spring break reunion weekend in Jacksonville in April 2013. Shelly, Tracy, Jackie, Geri and Sandy told me not to call it a reunion, but thats what it turned out to be. After sort of reliving our senior year with these three 30-year reunion events, Taylor County High Schools Class of 1982 is planning a Class of 82 turns 50 Birthday Bash in Las Vegas. Thats right. The majority of the Class of 1982 will turn 50 this year. I say the majority because there are a couple of classmates who are little older and a few, including me, who are a little younger. But, all-in-all, we will turn 50 this year, which calls for a celebration. For me, and perhaps for most of my classmates, the most exciting part of our birthday bash will be celebrating Halloween in Las Vegas. One classmate, who I will allow to remain nameless, had decided not to go on the Vegas trip. When I asked why, she said, How much fun can you have celebrating with 50-yearolds? I dont know, I answered. But Im sure you can tell me since youre already 50 and Im not. She gave me the nger, and then added, Well, Ive been to Vegas a bunch of times already. But have you spent Halloween in Vegas? I asked. And with your 50-year-old classmates? And me? Well be there for Halloween? she asked, her interest suddenly aroused. Yes, we will, I answered, knowing she was hooked. And guess who Im going to dress up as? Who? Im not telling, I responded with a devilish grin. You have to come to Vegas to see. But remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Then count me in, she exclaimed. Ive got the perfect costume. When I approached a friend who is not a classmate, intent on inviting her to the birthday bash, I found that my excitement didnt translate to her either. Another reunion? she smirked when I mentioned my class birthday bash in Las Vegas. No, I answered. Its not a reunion. Its a celebration. Whats the difference? she asked. Since you asked, my response began. A reunion is a gathering to reect on who we were, and a birthday bash is a gathering to celebrate how far weve come. Well, I dont see nothing exciting about celebrating with a bunch of 50-year-olds, the two-years-younger smart aleck said. Neither do I, I jokingly responded. Im only 49. But, it will be celebrating Halloween in Vegas. Who do I call to reserve my spot? she asked. Once again, Halloween in Vegas had piqued the interest of someone who didnt think celebrating 50 years of wonderful lives was exciting enough. I understand though. The thought of spending Halloween in Vegas is what convinced this 49-year-old to celebrate turning 50 a year early with my classmates. Hendry family hosts 147th reunion The 147th annual Robert M. Hendry Family Reunion will be held Sunday, May 3, at the Robert M. Hendry Memorial Methodist Church in Shady Grove. Morning services will start at 11 a.m., followed by dinner on the grounds. Robert M. and Martha Carlton Hendry had 12 children and the descendants of those children host this long-standing tradition. This years host family is descended from Eli McFail Hendry. Born in Taylor County, (Eli) Hendry and his wife were had nine children. They raised their family up in the fear and admonition of the Lord, and the legacy of their faith and love of God, family and the community still resonates today. Two of their sons, Dozier and Glazier, became licensed preachers and several of his descendants followed his path as public servants in Taylor County, family members said.Descendants of Robert and Martha Hendry gather Sunday in Shady GoveProgress always involves risks.

within the two to three inches predicted. At this point, it does not appear this latest rain will put us in a worse situation than we already were, Taylor County Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Spradley said Thursday. We have reached out to the state emergency operations center and the Red Cross and were trying to get evaluations done here about some longer term assistance. We do not have any shelters open. Those are typically for the short term. Weve asked the Red Cross to evaluate options to help those who have been living in dirty water for weeks now. Were not sure if well be successful, but with the governor making his declaration, it tends to ratchet up the response. Were doing all we can do to get them some help. The local Florida Forest Service rain gauge reported an inch at the Perry Station this week. Meanwhile, the Suwannee River Water Management District gauge at Foley Tower recorded two and a half inches and the one in Cabbage Grove had more than three inches. The Aucilla River remains above ood stage and the Econna River is in action stage, less than a foot below its ood stage. The State Emergency Response Team (SERT) is urging those affected by this weeks severe weather and subsequent ooding to remain vigilant and to take precautions to ensure their continued safety. The storms will continue to affect North Florida as river levels continue to rise, said State Coordinating Ofcer Bryan W. Koon. Monitor your NOAA weather radio or local media for instructions from local emergency management ofcials. The SERT will continue to provide assistance to counties who request it.A-3 Perry News-Herald May 2-3, 2014 and other local high school athletes. The only thing I asked of them was to behave. Agner retired in November 2013 and the move proved key for the next chapter of his Barn Yard Gym. One thing led to another and we kept having more and more kids coming out. At one time we probably had half the football team working out. We pretty much outgrew the space, so when I retired, I decided to build a bigger barn. He commissioned a large pole barn, which was raised just a few feet from the old horse shed. He also reached out to a longtime Army buddy who was in the construction business. Hes the one who wrote that book (Charlie Rangers). Ive kept in touch with him over the years and had talked with him about what I was doing. He told me, Ill come help you and I told him, Ill take you up on that. So he and his son came down in February (2014) and stayed with us eight days. We worked everyday from 5:30 in the morning to 8 at night enclosing the barn. Walking into the new gym, it is easy to get a sense of what is expected from anyone who comes in: work, hard work. An American ag hangs over a group of weights and a Ranger ag faces the front door. Theres also a CD player in the corner surrounded by a stack of albums lled with music dating from the 1960s and 70s. I told them I wasnt listening to any of the stuff from today--Im listening to the good stuff, Agner said, laughing at the reaction from the younger athletes. Im not going to put up with bad language and no foolishness. The one requirement for someone to join is simple: Be nice. Also missing from the walls are the oor-to-ceiling mirrors typically found inside a gym. It isnt about how you look. Its about being strong. I want this to be a place where kids can come and stay on the straight and narrow. Most of the young people who visit the gym have little understanding of just what the Ranger ag means to Agner. They dont know much about that. It was a long time ago. Agner was fresh from making a name for himself in the track eld (setting a record dubbed the Agner Mile) when he joined the Army shortly after graduating from Taylor County High School in 1967. A handful of months later, the teen who had rarely left Florida before then, was in Vietnam. I would have quit two weeks into Basic, but they wouldnt let me. He spent his rst tour with the 101st Airborne. Then he joined the Rangers and was soon back in a leadership position again--serving as team leader for a six-man group of soldiers whose job was to seek out the enemy. It is what it is. I faced death at an early age, so I was not afraid of that. I was worried about my team, but you train well and that comes into play in the eld--you fall back on your training and just react. Three wooden crosses are nailed to the barns side doors and hint at another lesson Agner hopes those who come to the gym also learn. I was saved when I was 12 years old and I believe once saved, always saved. Our motto here is Where Jesus Matters. And He does. We dont push it on people or give sermons or anything. We try to show them how everybody helps everybody, and teach them the way to live. If you dont have Christ in your life, you cant do anything. But the bottom line is we want them to have fun. What I like to see is our kids, our students, be successful--have a good job, a good education.

President Diane Ching will welcome all guests and announce the 2014 recipient. Additionally, former Ladies of the Year will be recognized. Refreshments will follow. By FLORRIE BURROUGHS Spring? Its summer already! Shady Grove has its fair share of pretty yards and owers. Folks are outside planting, watering, etc. I have spent a lot of time in my yard also. I treasure every little plant that bursts forth from the soil. Bluebirds are busyMy rose bushes are beautiful and I have clipped several bouquets to share. Judging from the warm weather, it seems we have skipped spring, and are now into summer. My bluebird houses have been very active and it is such fun to watch mama and daddy bird feeding their little ones. When my husband, Joe, was diagnosed with cancer and told he had 6 months to live, he said he knew I would get out in the yard and dig, plant, water and that I would be alright because he knew I loved gardening. Gardening, like no other task, makes me feel good. I feel as if I am sharing in Gods creation. Joe was right on about the gardening, I do love it. As far as being alright, well the jury is still out on that. Somber note... On a somber note when I was walking Jack and JR this morning, a tiny wren, just learning to y was in the driveway. It would y about a foot off the ground, and no more than 3 or 4 feet, before landing again. It was evident this baby wren was on his rst solo ight. I tried to detour the dogs. Jack was on the leash and I could keep him from the bird, but JR, in spite of my shouting chased the little bird, had him in his mouth, and well you know the rest of the story. We had a little burial in the ower garden. Oh my, I dont like things like that, but it happens. Yesterday we encountered a turtle near the pond. The dogs sniffed at him and he drew his head into his shell. I picked him up and put him in the pond. I hope you are using these days to enjoy the outdoors, and all of Gods creation.

A-6 Perry News-Herald May 2-3, 2014 Religion Shady Grove observes National Day of Prayer By FLORRIE BURROUGHS Shady Grove and area residents met on Thursday, May 1, to observe the National Day of Prayer. There were two opportunities to pray, at 7 a.m. and again at 7 p.m. The event was led by area pastors. I am including the 2014 prayer. This prayer is appropriate for any day and if youre like me, you know we need prayer in this country. In other words, we need the Lord. Lord of the Universe. Lord of this planet. Lord of the nations. Lord of our hearts. On this National Day of Prayer, we look to You. In the darkness, You are our Light. In the storm, You are our Anchor. In our weakness, You are our Strength. In our grief, You are our Comfort. In our despair, You are our Hope. In our confusion, You are our Wisdom. In time of terrorism, You are our Shield. In time of war, You are our Peace. In times of uncertainty, You are the Rock on which we stand. We make our prayer to You using the words of the prophet Daniel: O Lord, You are the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant of love with those who love Him and keep His commandments. You are merciful and forgiving. You are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame because we have sinned against You, and done wrong. We have turned away from Your commands and principles. We have turned away from You. Yet You have promised in II Chronicles 7, that if we-a people identied with You-would humble ourselves, pray, seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways, then You would hear our prayer, forgive our sin and heal our land. So we choose to stop pointing our nger at the sins of others, and examine our own hearts and lives. We choose to acknowledge our own sin-our neglect and deance and ignorance and even rejection of You. This day we choose to repent. In response to our heartfelt repentance, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Father of Jesus Christ, in keeping with all Your righteous acts and according to Your promise, turn away Your anger and Your wrath from the United States of America. Hear the prayers and petitions offered to You on this National Day of Prayer, as we give You our full attention. Give ear, our God, and hear; open Your eyes and see. We do not make requests of You because we are righteous, but because of Your great mercy. For the glory of Your Name hear our prayer, forgive our sin, and heal our land. We ask this in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ who offers us salvation from Your judgment, forgiveness for our sin, and reconciliation with You through His own blood shed on the Cross. Amen. Tidbits:Citywide sessions just get betterBy SARAH HALL Citywide Mission will be held the rst Sunday, May 4, at New Brooklyn M. B. Church at 2:30 p.m. Plan to attend; every session gets better and better! Sister Geraldine Sparrow, serves as president and the Rev. D.L. McBride is pastor/teacher.Special prayer for everybodyPray for Willie James Bear Brown (home), Idell Bass at DMH, David Driggers at TMH and Viola Woodfaulk (Marshall Rehab).Are you looking for love?Everyone is looking for love. But not real love. We want the love that attracts us to the way someone looks. The kind that comes without respect, responsibility, honor or acknowledgement. Its for a good time as long as we feel good about it. In fact, we get obsessed with it. When were in love, everything and everybody is all right with the world. But, then reality sets in. We have nothing in common. We dont even like being around each other. We begin making excuses, arguing and nding fault. Were in love with being in love. The idea is somewhat overwhelming, even exciting! We begin to take a fresh look at love. The love that God ordains. In ICorinthians 13:4-8, (take a good look), the marks of love, real love, are the fruit of the Spirit. All of them. Read them. Study them. Practice them. Dont be disillusioned by this instant love with all the glamor and the hype that the world wants you to believe. The words of LovePaul describes it as the Greek word eros (romantic love). The Greek word storge describes a strong love that protects and makes secure. Phileo represents brotherly love of family and friendship. The most precious love of all is Agape love. That love speaks of Gods love. A love that is most profound and pure. There is no higher love than Gods divine love. Its for real. That love lasts forever. Its a love your can trust, honor, respect, acknowledge, keep, and theres enough for everybody. There is no lying, cheating and unhappiness in Gods love. If you dont have this kind of love (Gods Agape love) I pray that you will nd it in your lifetime. Your relationship with God depends on it. Believe me, your success in life and your chance for happiness depend on it. That is real love.
