Paul Dyal. Jones, who came to Taylor County High as an assistant coach in 2011, has served as athletic director and head football coach at Taylor County Middle School for the past two seasons. Jones replaces Ryan Smith, who resigned from the position last week after guiding the Bulldogs to two straight 6-5 seasons, including two appearances in the state playoffs. Dyal said summer workouts for football players will begin as scheduled on June 9 and Jones will begin working with the players on June 16. The superintendent said he plans to recommend Jones to the school board at its June 24 meeting. Tanner is one of those young men in the area that you watch growing up. Ive known his dad for more than 20 years, Dyal said. Jones grew up in Wakulla County, the son of legendary Wakulla football Coach J.D. Jones. Tanner Jones was an all-state quarterback at Wakulla and went on to play at Troy University in Alabama. Tanner has done an excellent job at the middle school and he deserves the opportunity to move up to the high school, Dyal said.

As of Tuesday morning, June 3, the Foley Cellulose Mill was fully operational, Public Affairs Manager Scott Mixon said. The safe operation of our facility for our employees and our community will continue to be a core value of GP. According to Mixon, the company has investigated the incident and forwarded its report to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. On May 28, at 3 a.m., the Foley Cellulose Mill experienced a complete electrical power failure, resulting in an unplanned shutdown of all manufacturing processes, he said. The electrical power loss, which shut down mill operations, contributed to the accidental release of chlorine dioxide at approximately 8 a.m. due to inoperable automated computer controls for the chlorine dioxide generation process.

Her sister, Tori Cruce Hollar, was valedictorian of the TCHS Class of 1999, and her brother Nate Cruce was third in his graduating class. Her father, Clyde Cruce, former principal at both TCHS and Perry Primary School, was also valedictorian of his own class, as was his mother before him. With this tradition also came added pressure on Claire, although she says it didnt come from her family. I didnt want to By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Staff writer For Taylor County High School Salutatorian John Hilton Jr., it isnt all the As he made in school that he remembersbut rather the three Bs he picked up in the 13 years between Pre-K and graduation. Yes, three. The last one, an 88-- so close to an A. They already told me to be prepared for his call when he makes his rst B in college, Hiltons mother, Violet said, while his dad, John Hilton Sr., shook his head in agreement. Hiltons response? Just the thought makes him cringe in denial. The 2014 seniors roadmap to academics is simple: Limit your social activities. Get along with your teachers. Oh, yeah, and study. Making good grades was never an issue, he said. My parents always encouraged me to do my homework and to study. I was always cautious about my grades, but it wasnt until I was in middle school that I rst started to realize what a grade point average (GPA) meant.

WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.com Nervous. Hopeful. But ready. That is how we felt 34 years ago when it was our turn to walk across the stage as graduates of Taylor County High Schools Class of 1982. When we walked off the stage, we carried three things with us. A high school diploma. A future of endless possibilities. And the message of Nothing Comes to Sleepers, an inspirational ballad that had come out of nowhere to become our Class Song. A few weeks earlier, after listening to the Gap Bands hit dance tune, Burn Rubber, for the thousandth time, I decided to turn the record over to its B side and nally listen to Nothing Comes to Sleepers. I fell in love with the song as soon as I heard the rst two lines. With the sunshine comes the dawning of a day. Still another dream has come and slipped away. I called some of my classmates Fram, Jackie, Elaine and Michelle, and had them listen to the song. The next day, I took the record to school and we began campaigning to make Nothing Comes to Sleepers our Class Song. Most of our classmates fell in love with the song as soon as they heard it. Some had to listen to the song a few times before the meaning of its lyrics became clear. A few days later, the Class of 1982 chose Nothing Comes to Sleepers as its Class Song. Taylor County High Schools Class of 2014 has chosen We Run This Town by Luke Bryan as its Class Song. Its a nice song. And we hope its message inspires and guides you through the next phase of your life. However, if ever the message of We Run this Town isnt inspiration enough, the Class of 1982 offers our Class Song as the B-side to your own. Congratulations. Nothing Comes To Sleepers by the Gap Band With the sunshine comes the dawning of a day Still another dream has come and slipped away Scattered visions of the things you want to be Make you open up your mind and try to see How to make dreams come true Oh life is but a dream...nothing comes to sleepers but a dream Oh life is but a dream...nothing comes to sleepers but a dream Sitting all alone you wonder what is real Is it what you see or is it what you feel While your wondering the day has passed away No more time for wondering it is time to pray God make our dreams come true Oh life is but a dream...nothing comes to sleepers but a dream Oh life is but a dream...nothing comes to sleepers but a dream Far beyond the sky the source of everything Seems to hold within his hands your destiny In the twinkling of an eye your life could change Turn the sunshine in your life to tears of pain God made our dreams come true Oh life is but a dream...nothing comes to sleepers but a dream Oh life is but a dream...nothing comes to sleepers but a dream Oh life is but a dream...nothing comes to sleepers but a dream. D-Day: The day the tide turned Editors Note: Last week, Taylor County honored its war dead on Memorial Day. More than dozen World War II veterans took part in the ceremony, and each carries a unique history of the war which marked so many lives for generations to come. Today marks the 70th anniversary of one of the wars most decisive days: D-Day. One of Taylor Countys own, the late Bud Lee, marched ashore the blood-soaked beach just a few days after the initial landing. The following summary of the fateful battle comes courtesy of the National D-Day Museum. For more than two-and-a-half years the Allies planned and gathered their military strength to hurl into the decisive amphibious invasion of northern France and strike a mortal blow against the empire of Nazi Germany. In anticipation, Adolf Hitler stockpiled reserves across French coastlines into the Atlantic Wall defenses, determined to drive the Allied forces back into the sea. There will be no second chance for the Allies: the fate of their cause hangs upon this decisive day. After bad weather forces a delay, an expected break in the weather for Tuesday, June 6, is reported to General Dwight D. Eisenhower at rain-lashed Southwick House at 21:30 hours on the night of Sunday, June 4. Eisenhower makes the decision only he can make: Operation OVERLORD is unleashed by the Supreme Commander to begin the liberation of Europe from Hitlers Third Reich. As word of his decision spreads to the Allied forces after midnight, men across southern England prepare to enter the climactic battle. Before dawn on June 5, Eisenhower meets with his staff one last time to hear the latest weather report. With ships sailing into the English Channel, the last opportunity to halt the invasion is upon him. He conrms his previous order, and in less than a minute he is left alone in the room in Southwick House as his subordinates rush to comply. There is no turning back now. The invasion must succeed, for no plan has been made to evacuate the forces in the event of failure. In the early minutes of June 6, 1944, Allied paratroopers and gliders descend from the night sky to wrest control of key bridges and roadways from the Germans. Behind them in the darkness of early morning an initial force of over 130,000 servicemen from the Allied nations cross a choppy English Channel aboard an armada of over 5,000 ships. Their destination is Normandy, where they will assault the German enemy and make history. Without a deepwater port, constant supply and reinforcements were needed to break out of the beachhead. The solution was an articial harbor built in England and brought to Normandy. Known by the code name Mulberry, two of these harbors were designed to unload men and supplies. Spud barges that oated up and down with the tide formed the center of the harbors unloading activity. They were joined to the shore by oating roadways know as Whales.

Yankee soldiers stormed toward the beach-sweeping re of Nazi defenders in the D-Day invasion of the French Coast. Troops ahead are seen lying ay under the deadly machine gun resistance of the Germans. Soon the Nazis were driven back under the overwhelming invasion forces thrown in from Coast Guard and Navy amphibious craft. No turning back: June 6, 1944 Congratulations, Class of 2014

A-3 Perry News-Herald June 6-7, 2014 is just too dangerous, Clark said. Council members Shirlie Hampton and Venita Woodfaulk said they have also received complaints from their constituents regarding the issue. Hampton rst sought to nd a way to allow use of ATVs/dirt bikes somewhere in the city, but the council as a whole was not willing to assume the liability of such an action. In subsequent discussions, members considered a variety of ideas on how to address the issue before deciding to pursue a vehicle registration ordinance. Under the proposal, the one-time registration would include the owner receiving a set of registration stickers that would have to be displayed on both the front and back of their ATV/dirt bikes. The council will consider a draft proposal of the ordinance at its upcoming Tuesday night (June 10) meeting. It is slated to include: all self-propelled nonroad licensable vehicles of speeds of 20 mph or more, and not intended solely for use in water or able to maintain sustained ight. registration: Only those in active transport (i.e. on trailer attached to a vehicle or in a vehicle) and those involved in city-sanctioned events (i.e. parades, etc.). 30 days in which to register their vehicle once the ordinance passed. registered vehicles found on any property in the city: Vehicle impounded at the direction of a police ofcer in rotation. Someone would have to show proof of registration and pay local towing fees to retrieve from impoundment. Loss of use of vehicle until it is registered and tow company bills are paid. north of Mobile, broke away from the Mobile County School system in 2012. The Chieftains will compete in (2014). By making this move I have a chance to get into college football. I have to take a step back to do it, but it has always been my ultimate goal to move up to give me the opportunity to do that, Smith said. Smith said he is proud of the accomplishments his teams made here including back-to-back trips to the state playoffs playoff appearances to ve straight years--the longest streak in school history. His teams also had three kids sign on National Signing Day. I think the thing that I am most proud of is slaying the giant--breaking Madisons streak of 23 straight wins against Taylor County. I will always remember that night when our boys stopped Madison on the twopoint conversion attempt to win, 34-33 and people pouring through every gate and hole in the fence to run onto the eld and celebrate with our boys, he said.

A-5 Perry News-Herald June 6-7, 2014 was loaded with advance placement and honors classes, Hilton said he most enjoyed studying history and English. He plans to earn a degree in English literature from Florida State University and teach English in South Korea. Im interested in the culture. Also, in my research I found that most people who teach there usually visit an average of 10 countries during the year they are teaching. I like that, he said. Quiet by nature, Hilton spent much of his high school years immersed in study, reading and online gaming. He was a member of the Key Club and National Honor Society. When asked what advice he would give incoming freshmen, Hilton was quick to respond: Work on having a good relationship with your teachers...Ive seen what happens when a student doesnt have a good relationship with a teacher and it really is bad for them and also the rest of us in class. The same goes with fellow students--having bad relationships can also cause problems. As he looks ahead to a career in teaching, Hilton said he hopes his good work ethic will serve him well. But there is one trait he said he feels hell need to overcome: I need to start talking more. disappoint them even though I knew they wouldnt have been disappointed, she said, insisting it wasnt a specic goal she had to become valedictorian. Really, I just wanted to keep making As and let it go from there. She was with her parents in Tallahassee when TCHS Principal Audie Ash called her father to give him the news that Claire was valedictorian. We could all actually hear the conversation so we were crying and laughing, she said. We were going to Party City to pick up things for my graduation party and my dad was going around to strangers saying, My daughter is valedictorian. If her father and sister, both of whom she considers a role model, provided the inspiration for Claires high school career, it is her mother, Jennifer Cruce, who has provided a course for her future studies. She plans to attend Tallahassee Community College next fall to nish her Associate of Arts degree, which she is already well on her way to attaining after spending her senior year at TCHS taking dual enrollment courses. From there, she plans to transfer to the Florida State University School of Business to complete her undergraduate studies before seeking a masters degree in nance. Finance has been my target since the beginning of high school, Claire said. My mom worked in a bank for a long time. I dont really want to work at a bank, but Id love to work in nance at a hospital or another organization. With only days remaining in her high school career, Claire did take a moment to look back at her time at TCHS and provide some advice to those about to start their own journeys through high school. Do your homework, she said. Thats any easy way to get an A. Study. Some people dont have to study and can ace everything, but Im denitely a person who has to study and prepare. I do well when I study. Dont be rude to the teachers. They want to be on good terms with you. Stay out of trouble. Be sure your friends arent hindering your success. Before Claire begins college, or even enjoys a bit of well-deserved rest, there is Saturdays graduation ceremony to both attend and prepare for, since she will be expected to address her classmates one last time as a high school student. Her valedictory speech, which she has already written, will focus on the future awaiting each of them. Although shes saving the specic details for Saturday, she did say shes keeping it short, because I know its going to be hot. Aside from her public speaking duties, however, she is looking forward to the ceremony. Its bittersweet because we are going to different places, she said. Most of my friends are going to universities down south and one of my best friends is going into the Navy. It makes you sad but also proud of how far weve come. For Claire, as well as the 106 other graduating seniors, that is the essence of Saturdays commencement ceremony, a conuence of past, present and future, of tears and laughter, of family traditions and new beginnings.

(2 Chronicles 15:7) Wear or bring your purple May Day shirt.Celebrate LifeIts the most precious gift we have. Money cant buy it; good works cant achieve it. Its a gift from God; take good care of it. Its all we have and when its gone.. Its gone! Kind words can be short, sweet and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.The same spiritWe tend to forget that the same spirit that Jesus was anointed with, as believers, is supposed to reside in us. So that means that this spirit is present when we get angry, when we disagree among ourselves, when we are disappointed and when our backs are up against the wall, and we just simply dont know what to do. This Jesus Spirit gives us the ability to teach and witness the good news to the poor, needy and the unsaved. It helps to grow and strengthen our faith. We tend to forget and let ourselves take over. But Jesus commissioned all believers, not just a few. Let this mind be in you that is in Christ Jesus. Not sometime but all the times. The human side forgets and sin takes control. Fear takes us out of control that Jesus gave us; be mindful. He is holding us accountable. The world is waiting and watching us. Dont fall prey to selshness. We fear because we think about ourselves too much, our physical and natural inabilities, but remember, lean on Jesus, call Him in prayer and supplication and He will give us the wherewith-us to carry us through these trying situations. We all suffer at sometime or another. His promise is that He will be us in all things at all times, lest we forget!A Special PrayerLord, we pray for our sick, shut-ins, those in prisons and those who are bereaved. Keep them in your care. Comfort them. Heal them and sustain them, as only you can do. Precious Savior, please have mercy on them. Our prayer today is not for ourselves, but for others. Extend your arm of love and compassion for all of us, your children. Thank you for our lives. In the precious name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
