The ceremony will begin Flooding conditions worsen with another six inches of rain After more than a week of mostly dry weather, Taylor County received another bout of strong storms late Wednesday and early Thursday, dropping as many as six inches of rain in some areas of the county, exacerbating local ooding problems. The storms quickly swelled local rivers, and by Thursday afternoon the Steinhatchee River had already risen more than six feet in just 24 hours, inches away from minor ood stage. Were hoping this was just a spike from the large amount of rain in such a short amount of time, County Administrator Dustin Hinkel said Thursday. The National Weather Service (NWS) is projecting it will level off to a more manageable rise and will hopefully crest soon. Road crews are in the Steinhatchee area monitoring the situation, looking for water over roadways. The Econna River rose about two feet from Wednesday to Thursday and was nearing action stage. The Fenholloway River near U.S. 27 had also risen two feet. The Suwannee River Water Management District rain gauge at the Foley tower recorded nearly three inches of rain from the storms while the one at Cabbage Grove recorded two inches. Hinkel said his ofce was getting reports from Steinhatchee of six inches of rain.

WHITE email@example.comAs cool as I once was Pull them shorts up! My grandmother wasnt there Thursday morning to scream Pull them shorts up when I stepped out of the house after waking up to dismal skies and a midlife crisis moment. But, I still heard her. Either youre going to put a belt around your waist, her voice rang in my head. Or Im going to put a belt on your behind. But, because she wasnt there to back up her threat, I stepped outside and walked toward the car holding my shorts up by a belt loop. This midlife crisis moment started as soon as I opened my eyes. I realized I had overslept by 22 minutes after turning the alarm clock off in my sleep. My mind was cluttered by the hundred or so things that do not matter to young, cool folks. Things I had disregarded the day before. And nearly every part of my body ached. I had awakened as a different man. I was no longer young and cool. Since there was nothing I could do about the age issue, I climbed out of bed looking for ways to be cool again. As I got dressed to go to the store, it hit me. Forget the belt and let my shorts hang low. My uncle gave me a sideways look heard my grandmother too. It didnt take long for me to realize that I may not be as cool as I thought I was. And it had nothing to do with the breeze spanking my backside when I stepped out the door. When I got out of the car at the store, I put my cell phone and my keys in my pocket. My shorts fell to my knees. If I had not been wearing boxers, I would have mooned the sweet, little lady sitting in the car beside mine. She shook her head in disgust and wondered why my wife, mother, sister, brother or someone didnt tell me to put on a belt before I left the house. At least thats what the frown on her face said she was thinking. I felt myself losing cool points. I grabbed a shopping cart and pushed it in the store to keep anyone else from noticing my boxers were showing and my shorts were being held up by my knees. Walking widelegged to keep my shorts up meant I had to take my time pushing the buggy around the store. I had no idea being cool was such hard work. Im bow-legged so my legs can be a clothes hanger, which helped some. I cant task has to be for those who arent. I smiled at the cashier and told her that I only wanted some of the items in my buggy. Can you have someone put the other items back? I asked her. Was something wrong with them? she asked. No, I answered. I couldnt put them back because Im having a hard time walking because my shorts wont stay up. Then I lied, I walked out of the house and forgot to put on my belt. I hate when my son does that, she said. Its not cool. She was right. did was reach for my belt. As I put on my belt, I sang a misquoted verse from Toby Keith, I aint as cool as I once was, but Im cooler now than I ever was.

A-12 Perry News-Herald May 16-17, 2014 the recruitment of manufacturing companies in order to help bring new private sector jobs and investments into the county, Foley said in its amendment application. Further, the State of Florida is increasing efforts to attract jobgenerating businesses to Florida and is looking for industrial properties suitable for locating prospective manufacturing companies. These sites ideally have industrial land-use classications, are proximate to central water, sewer, rail and natural gas, and are served by electrical power companies with favorable rate structures. The county has industrial land-use areas, but many of these properties lack adjacent infrastructure and are solely within only one of two electric power providers serving the Taylor County area. To increase Taylor Countys competitiveness to attract joband investmentgenerating economic development projects, it has become important to have industrial sites that include as many of the infrastructure assets noted above as possible. Local ofcials, along with the TCDA, have been working with one prospective business, BioNitrogen, for the past several weeks to develop an incentive package to entice the company to site a potential $200 million plant here to convert biomass into urea fertilizer. At the May 1 planning board meeting, TCDA Director Scott Frederick called the Foley property a premier site, adding that he has shown it to several prospects. He also noted that the property is eligible for new market tax credits, while other potential properties are not. Several nearby property owners expressed their opposition to the land use change citing the potential impact to their homes and questioned why other sites were not considered. Bo Taff, representing Foley, stated that other sites lacked the same level of infrastructure and were not served by Duke Energy. During the discussion, planning board members noted that the issue of industrial buffers would be addressed when a property owner presented a development plan to the board for consideration.
