Slinging mud With mud still fresh on the tires from its Super Bog event last weekend, Iron Horse Mud Ranch will shine up its monster mud truck for the 2018 Florida Forest Festival parade on Saturday. The 2010 Chevrolet (above) has a 6.0 liter engine and tuner, rides on a custom suspension with 30-inch shocks, massive 82-inch tires on Pettibone 5-ton hybrid axles and features hydraulic steps for easy entry, as well as a custom interior and upgraded stereo system. Last weekends event went amazing, Iron Horse owner Kari Larson said. The turnout was incredible. People really enjoyed the new improvements, as the beach and playground were used a bunch this weekend. The respect level was amazing, as people cleaned up their campsites before leaving. We are working on adding a few new things for the next event in March, Larson added. Disaster c laims ofce opens Wednesday Claims could impact local economy by $2.2 million A temporary claims processing center for D-SNAP (Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) will open here Wednesday and process claims through Sunday, and has the potential to have a $2.2 million impact on the local economy. Details regarding eligibility for the disaster relief claims program -tied to Hurricane Michael -were not available as of presstime, but local ofcials said assessment teams estimated that some 3,500 residents may apply for benets. The processing center will be located at First Baptist Churchs Student Center (formerly the Citizens Bank location in downtown Perry). A team of 85 employees will When Taylor County voters cast their ballots on Nov. 6 they will have the chance to decide whether or not local schools can continue to provide special classes such as drama, music, STEM, technology and media by renewing a 0.25 mill critical needs property tax for an additional four years. The quarter mill tax has been levied to help fund academic, non-core school programs such as music and physical education, as well as cover the cost of increasing operating expenses for the past seven years.

Chaos in Chattahoochee: Perry ofcials lend aid after stormJust three weeks ago in a small Panhandle town, the rst order of business for three newly-elected city council members was to re the municipalitys longtime city manager. That action triggered a walkout by several senior staff members and department heads. The assistant city manager, 25, was named interim director and had been on the job only one day when Hurricane Michael struck, leaving his city in ruins. There was a total loss of utilities across the board city, gas and sewer. Homes were destroyed and numerous businesses reduced to rubble. This was the scene Perry City Manager Taylor Brown, Public Works Director Chester McAfee and Steve Caruso with the City of Perrys wastewater department found when they arrived in Chattahoochee just three days after the devastating disaster.

Since God woke me up this morning Ive been giving him some praise, and Ive been singing Hallelujah all day. The three essentials of happiness are something to DO, someone to LOVE and something to HOPE for. --Vivian Schneider (Fairbault, Minn.) Prayer focus Please keep these friends in your prayers: Willie Mae Gadsden (Tampa), Deborah Glanton, Katie Monroe, Deborah Ervin and Hazel Mickens. In case you havent been there... Losing everything that you have worked for! I mean everything, a natural disaster like re, oods, hurricanes, storms and such. My last disaster was re. As some of you might remember, I lost my home and everything in it. A natural disaster, lightning striking a gas line in the kitchen, destroying livelihood, but spared our lives! Anyway, I can empathize with what Hurricane Michael victims are going through. What Im addressing is the need for help and support now. People came to my support immediately. Everybody needs to give and do it now! Groups are already formed. Go in your closets, garages, sheds and stores and give what you can now! If you have the time and are able to do so, volunteer! Go and see what you can do to help. Get involved! How many does it take to change a light bulb? Charismatic: only one...hands already in the air. Catholics: none...they use candles. Pentecostals: to change and nine to pray against spirit of darkness. Episcopalians: to change the bulb and nine to say how much they liked the old one. Presbyterians: none...God has predestined when the lights will be on or off. United Methodists: We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your journey, you have found that a light bulb works for you, that is ne. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your personal relationship with your light bulb and present it next month at our annual light bulb service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, uorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence through Jesus Christ. Amen! 50/50 A young man saw an elderly couple sitting down to lunch at McDonalds. He noticed they had ordered one meal, and an extra drink cup. As he watched, the older gentleman carefully divided the hamburger in half, then counted out the fries, one for him, one for her, until each had half of them. Then the old man poured half of the soft drink into the extra cup and sat that in front of his wife. The old man then began to eat, and his wife sat watching, with her hands folded in her lap. The young man decided to ask if they would allow him to purchase another meal for them so that they didnt have to split theirs. The old gentleman said, Oh no. Weve been married 50 years, and everything has always been and will always be shared, 50/50. The young man then asked the wife if she was going to eat, and she replied, Not yet.

VALDOSTA MAN ACCEPTED TCDA POSITIONA Valdosta man teaching school in Echols County accepted the $17,000 per year post as Taylor Countys new industrial developer. Taylor County Development Authority Chairman Carl Fletcher made the offer to Charles McAuley Oct. 25, 1983. McAuley had experience with the Southeast Georgia Industrial Development Corporation and was familiar with government agencies and federal economic programs, TCDA search committee member Dave Smith said. McAuley was singled out of about 25 initial applicants for the job, which was vacated by Roy Whitton in September. HE HOPED THEY MEANT WHAT THEY SAIDBilly Porter hoped that Uncle Sam meant what he said in the sign above I Want You. Porter, 22, had been ghting to get into the U.S. Army for more than a year, but had been rejected because of a plate in his head he received about 12 years prior as the result of a shooting accident. Porter left for Tallahassee Monday, Oct. 24, 1983, on his bicycle and, from there, was to head to Washington D.C. He said he hoped to reach the capital by the end of the month, and had set up a meeting with U.S. Congressman Don Fuqua to discuss his problem. He said he also hoped to contact President Ronald Reagan to let him know that he wanted to get into the armed services. Several businesses in town, such as McDonalds, Yarbrough Tire, Pepsi Cola, Badcocks and Lynns Tire, all sponsored him on his bike ride. ALMA WALKER ELECTED TO DIRECTORSHIPAlma Walker, president of the Perry Womans Club, Inc., was elected district director of District III for the Florida Federation of Womans Clubs in a district meeting held at the Madison Womans Club in Madison on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 1983. Walker was the rst Perry woman to hold that post in 20 years. FORMER PERRY RESIDENT NAMED TO GEORGIA SAFETY COUNCILFormer Perry resident Dr. Floyd Falany joined 30 other Georgia citizens in trying to combat drunk driving on Georgia highways. Falany, the executive vice-president and dean of the Reinhardt College in Waleska, Ga., was appointed by Georgia Gov. Joe Frank Harris to the states Council on Public Safety. The goal of the organization was to reduce the number of drunk drivers on Georgias highways through a campaign of public awareness. A veteran educator and psychologist, Falany had served as a classroom teacher, educational television instructor, high school counselor and college professor. In addition, he was director of the Educational Services Center in Royston, which developed special curriculum services for public schools, and was administrator in the Department of Counselor Education at the University of Georgia.

The mother was the former Janice Weeks.A-11 Perry News-Herald October 26-27, 2018 October 26-27, 2018 Looking Back Remember when... By ANTHONY L. WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comRiding in a red pickup truck My week wasnt going like I expected it to. It was October 2012, the week of the Florida Forest Festival. An unfortunate incident left my car vehicle available was a candy apple red Ford F-150, which I reluctantly accepted. I grew up in the back of my grandfathers pickup truck, so I didnt have a problem driving a truck. My problem was the amount of money I was going to spend on gas commuting to my job at Florida A & M University in Tallahassee. However, I refused to let this unfortunate incident ruin my week. So, I painted on a smile that glistened like the candy apple red pickup and cruised across campus and around town like I belonged behind the wheel of a brand new F-150. I spent twice as much on gas, but the oohs and ahhs -and even a few eye winks -the truck and I elicited were worth it. The next unfortunate incident -at least thats what I saw it as at the time -occurred when my cousin Dionns job scheduled her to work on festival Saturday. When she popped up at the house, the look on her face said she was about to ask for a favor. What? I asked as soon as she opened the door. Are you going to the festival tomorrow? she answered with a question. My response was to ask, Why? I have to work in the morning, she said. And I prodded because I knew there was more. The children want to go to festival, she blurted out. And they want to go with you. With me? They want to ride on the back of the new truck, she explained. Then the whole truth came on out. And I told them you would take them. Thats when I realized she wasnt asking for a favor. Instead, she was telling me I was taking my little cousins to the festival. The next morning, after the parade, Dionns kids piled in the back of the truck at my familys parade meeting spot -my cousin Glorias house next to Rosehead Park. So, youre taking the kids to the park and fair? Gloria asked a bit surprised. I didnt have much of a choice, I answered. Dionn told them I would before she asked me. I thought I was going to have to take them, Gloria said with a grin. Thank God for your rental truck. A few minutes later, we joined the caravan headed for the Forest Capital Hall. The trip didnt seem to take as long as it usually did, but I had never driven a brand new candy apple red F-150 on festival Saturday. The rest of the afternoon, I saw the festival and the fair from the vantage points of Dionns 8-year-old son, Kyon, and her 6-year-old twins, Courtney and Deuce. carnival rides until we were exhausted. We ate cotton candy, corn dogs, funnel cakes and drank half of a keg of lemonade and soda. Then we held each other up as we slowly made our way back to the truck. My week didnt go as expected because of two unfortunate incidents, but I ended up enjoying the festival like I hadnt in years.
