With the help of the Perry Rotary Club, students each brought $1 to have one of their pinkies dyed purple as part of a fund-raising effort called the Purple Pinkie Project, to assist with the eradication of polio. First conceived by Rotarians in Lake City, Purple Pinkie Project events have been held across the world. Polio has not been a problem in the United States for many years, but this is not the case in many developing countries, Perry Rotary Club President Dawn Taylor said. By partnering with the World Health Organization and other government and private groups, Rotary International has achieved a 99 percent reduction of For golf carts usage after sunset Residents want to extend driving hours Residents in Steinhatchee may soon be allowed to drive golf carts at night, after Taylor County Commissioners agreed to consider changing the ordinance governing golf cart usage in the community. Several Steinhatchee residents rst approached the commission Tuesday, Sept. 16, requesting the change. Currently, the ordinance states golf carts may only be operated between sunrise and sunset. Following a brief discussion, Commissioner Jody DeVane made a motion to instruct County Attorney Conrad Bishop to draft an amended ordinance to allow night usage. Commissioner Jim Moody seconded and the measure was approved 4-0. On Monday, the commission agreed to advertise the draft ordinance and set two public hearings on the issue, with the rst scheduled during the boards Monday, Nov. 3, City approves property tax, water rate upcharges City utility customers saw a $5.10 increase on their water bills in their mailboxes this month. The Perry City Council approved the hike in the xed rate charge during nal budget hearings held recently. The council also voted unanimously to approve a 27.72 percent property tax increase. The two actions helped close a projected $400,000 budget gap triggered by rising ination costs and increased stafng for the City Fire Department.

Tenth Judicial Circuit Chief Assistant State Attorney Brian Haas in Bartow conrmed Thursday that the case has been concluded and that restitution to the victim has been made in full. Kornegay was arrested Monday, Sept. 15, at Miami International Airport after he was detained upon re-entering the country from Argentina when his passport was agged for an outstanding warrant for grand theft from Hardee County.

WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comThe day I joined the Air Force Ive always heard that if you want to see God laugh, tell Him your plans. I did and Im sure He got a good laugh. I was 23 and I still didnt have a clue about what I wanted to do with my life. I had spent the past four years studying industrial engineering at the University of Florida only to discover that I wasnt cut out to be an engineer. I had spent a year working as a typesetter and then reporter for the Perry News-Herald and Taco Times And, I still dreamed of writing literary classics like my idol, Ralph Ellison, author of the novel, Invisible Man. After weeks of pondering over all of my options, I came up with a plan. Im sure God, like my brothers and everyone else, laughed until He cried when I told Him I was going to Air Force and travel the world as a military journalist. My grandmother and mother wanted to laugh, but the thought of me being in the military was too much for them to bear. The only other person who didnt laugh was my cousin Tony, who initially came up with the idea for us to join the military on the buddy system. We took the militarys ASVAB test, passed it, and then scheduled our trip to the militarys entrance facility in Jacksonville. Everything was going as planned, that is, until we reached the entrance facility. My plan began to unravel as soon as we arrived. You two cant go in on the buddy system because Mr. White has been to college and therefore will be entering examiner explained. A few minutes later, a burly soldier commanded me and a group of other new recruits to undress to our boxers then walk across the room on our knees. Id made it halfway across the room when it occurred to me that I might not be cut out for the military. Now, were all going into the signing room where you will sign part of the United States military, the burly soldier said once we made it to the other side of the room. I reached for my pants. What are you doing? he asked. Getting dressed, I answered. You can get dressed later, he responded. After the signing. As the group made its way to the signing room, I slipped out of line, doubled back to where my clothes were, and darted toward a pay phone in the lobby. I called my cousin, Elaine, who lived in Jacksonville and begged her to come get me. Where are you? At the military entrance facility, I answered. Elaine laughed so hard that she dropped the phone and it went dead. She was still laughing when she made it to the center. What possessed you to try to enlist in the military? she asked I was planning for my future, I answered. She laughed even louder. You may not have a future as a soldier, she joked, but keep making plans like that and youll certainly make it as a comedian. 20 years ago...

A-3 Perry News-Herald October 10-11, 2014 Polio worldwide. In the United States, whose most famous polio victim was President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the country has been polio-free since 1979 thanks to wide-spread vaccinations. In 1988, when the Global Polio Eradication Initiative began, there were an estimated 350,000 new cases of polio each year around the world in 125 endemic countries, which included much of Europe, Africa, Asia and South America, as well as Mexico. Twenty-ve years later, there were just 445 cases worldwide in 2013, with the disease still endemic in only three countries: Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to End Polio Now, Rotarys polio eradication agency. During this time, more than 2.5 billion children around the world have been immunized. The World Health Organization recently unveiled a nal polio eradication action plan, announcing that the world could be polio-free by the 2018. Since $1 is the estimated cost to immunize one child from polio, local students were encouraged to bring $1 or more to help with this cause, said Rotarian Sondra Jones, who helped coordinate Wednesdays event. Each time a student puts $1 in the Purple Pinkie Bucket, we paint his or her pinkie with Gentian Violet as a symbol of one child immunized from Polio. Gentian Violet is a topical dye used by Rotary International to mark children after they have been immunized from Polio, Jones said. This prevents double dosage. Since it is widely used by nursing mothers and in the mouths of infants, it is very safe. By partnering with Rotary, our local students will become part of the solution to polio, and their purple pinkie will be their own personal reminder of one more child saved from the polio virus, Taylor said. According to Steinhatchee School Principal Julie Hurst, the school had 100 percent participation from her students. Teachers and faculty also joined in the event, leaving with their pinkies dyed as well. In total, the event raised approximately $175. Thanks to a continuing partnership between Rotary International and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, however, all of the money raised will be matched by the foundation two to one, resulting in a total contribution to the polio eradication effort of $525. This will ultimately translate to more than 500 children receiving a polio vaccination somewhere in the world. The Perry Rotary Club plans to conduct additional Purple Pinkie programs at other local schools and community events. PURPLE PINKIE Continued from page 1 Donations matched 2 to 1


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor Poised for a new club year, Perry Womans Club President Sharron Dorman outlined her goals during Wednesdays October meeting. I would like to remodel/ update our stage and sound system, Dorman said in her opening remarks. This would allow us to have ongoing dinner theatre events as well as many other money-making projects. She noted that, currently, the stage area has some vulnerable spots and needs to be restored to safe, usable standards. Dorman addressed the clubs need for fund-raisers in order to accomplish this goal. I have met with (attorney) Mike Smith about establishing 501.c3 status so that we can seek corporate donations for our project. She added, Taylor County needs cultural activities, adding that the stage would be a drawing card for groups needing such a forum. Dorman lauded the efforts of Main Street and urged the clubs support. I believe in Main Street with my whole heart. Ive been to town after town and, ladies, it works. Noting the clubs 100th anniversary, she agreed to keep members aware of Main Streets work community-wide, and specically, any improvements which could be accomplished for the club or its building. Dorman urged all to nd those missing memberspeople who havent participated in recent meetings. Club membership is currently at 59, but I remember the A-4 Perry News-Herald October 10-11, 2014 Living David Aaron Durden, Ashlea Danyell Browning Browning, Durden to exchange wedding vows at Willow PondJohn Browning and Robin Morgan announce the forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Ashlea Danyell Browning, to David Aaron Durden.

Sheriffs Ofce, the grand theft charge stemmed from a Hardee County resident transferring $100,000 in November 2012 to B Group LLC to be invested in Columbus Oil & Gas LLC. Kornegay is the registered agent of B Group. Dey said the money was not invested in the company after it failed to meet certain stipulations, but Kornegay continued to act as if it had been. Following his arrest, Kornegay was subsequently released on a $50,000 bond. The charge against Bryan has been dismissed, Bartow Attorney James Rusty Franklin said Wednesday. Franklin, who is Kornegays counsel of record on the case, added, Were very grateful that this has occurred. Kornegays arrest resulted in a temporary halt in the economic development partnership between BioNitrogen and the City of Perry. After two public meetings on the issue, the Perry City Council voted unanimously last Thursday, Oct. 2, to restore the companys access to a $5 million loan for which the city is providing a collateral guarantee. One of the assurances provided to the city by BioNitrogen during those meetings was that Kornegay, who had been on a leave of absence from the company since his arrest, would not return until the citys account was concluded. Mr. Kornegays terms of his leave of absence mean that he has been relieved of all duties and that all of his authority with BioNitrogen, including nancial accounts and nancial records, were and remain suspended, BioNitrogen CEO Carlos Contreras said after a Sept. 26 joint meeting with the city council, Taylor County Commission and company ofcials. Mr. Kornegays leave and suspension of all duties and authority with the company will remain unchanged as long as the City of Perrys cash collateral account remains in place. Kornegay joined BioNitrogen in early 2012 as CFO. In January 2013, the company announced he was assuming the position of president while continuing on as CFO. He succeeded Contreras, who is currently serving as acting president in addition to his roles as CEO and chairman of the company.Edna May MooreEdna May Moore, 75, of Perry, died at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014.

A-10 Perry News-Herald October 10-11, 2014 Cadet Second Lieutenant Ashley Wallace prepares to rappel down a 80-foot tower using a hand-held harness. JROTC cadets learn the ropes at Camp Blanding Taylor County High School JROTC cadets participated in their annual Camp Blanding Orientation Trip Oct. 2-4. During this event, cadets leadership, teamwork, mental and physical capabilities were tested. Camp Blanding is an actual military base, which allows cadets to experience various military procedures such as living in a barracks and special events such as: marching, early morning physical training, condence courses and an 80-foot rappel tower cadets must bravely descend using their hand-tied harnesses, said JROTC Senior Army Instructor Maj. (Ret.) Christopher R. McDaniel. Leadership reaction courses were also included in the cadets activities. These courses included obstacles such as the short plank, where cadets worked together in order to cross a stream and deliver a drum of supplies to headquarters, and the chain bridge, where cadets worked together to get supplies and themselves across a destroyed suspension bridge. In addition to the hustle and bustle of a military lifestyle, cadets also enjoyed other fun activities such as a night of street dancing and a trip to the Orange Park Mall. Many of the activities experienced during the Camp Blanding trip will be seen again this summer when cadets participate in Junior Cadet Leadership Challenge. All of the cadets worked very hard at Blanding and did an outstanding job. A special thanks goes out to the volunteer chaperones and the medical team for helping to watch over cadets and keep them safe, McDonald said.

Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton initially advocated for ending a discount on natural gas charges for customers, but backtracked after former city manager Bill Brynes related: If you raise the gas (by doing away with the discount), you will hurt your residents terribly and you could have something like happened 13 years agoa woman who died from the cold because she didnt turn on her heat to try and save money.

Gas customers would take more of a hit. meeting. The commission approved a similar request from Keaton Beach residents in 2010, allowing night usage at Dekle Beach, Keaton Beach, Ezell Beach, Cedar Island and Dark Island. If the Steinhatchee ordinance is amended, it will not affect the existing golf cart communities at Spring Warrior or Econna, as each area is governed by its own ordinance. According to Florida statutes, a local government can decide to allow golf cart use after sunset on designated roadways if the golf cart is equipped with headlights, brake lights, turn signals and a windshield. According to the local ordinance, golf carts must also be equipped with efcient brakes, reliable steering, safe tires, a rearview mirror, and red reector warning devices in both front and rear. During discussions held at the Sept. 16 meeting, one Steinhatchee resident requested the commission also consider allowing the use of rental golf carts. Bishop noted that during the public hearing on the original Steinhatchee golf cart ordinance, there was strenuous opposition to allowing the use of rental golf carts on public roadways. Commission Chairman Malcolm Page said the rental issue was separate from the request to drive at night, and the commission would discuss it further on its own at a future meeting. In addition to the sunrise to sunset restrictions, the current ordinance also states: regular motor vehicles when it is apparent that trafc congestion is occurring and shall in every event, yield to police and emergency vehicles. operated by anyone under the age of 16 years operated unless there is an in-force insurance policy covering the golf cart.

The minimum amount of required insurance coverage shall be $50,000 per person/ bodily injury, $100,000 per incident/property and umbrella. for residents and visitors to the [designated area].
