$7.5 million chip line



added to Perry plant


Lance Plant Manager Doug Spearman (right) an
Economic Developer Rick Breer stand beside one of the
carrying the company's new equipment.


S Lance Foods announced
".- Monday that it will expand the
^ former Tom's Food plant here,,
adding a $7.5 million "kettle chip.
line" to manufacture its Cape Cod
brand chips.
The expansion will add as many
as 52 jobs.
The announcement comes on the
; heels of a county commission-
.' approved tax incentive package
that was promoted by the Taylor
County Development Authority to
j lure the expansion here, away from
Lance's plant in Corsicana, Texas.
"This is an excellent example of
why tax exemption authorization
for local government is critical to
the community's economic
development efforts. Without the
community's ability to do tax
exemption, these jobs may well
have ended up in Texas," Taylor
County Director of Economic
Development Rick Breer said.
Lance Plant Manager Doug
d local Spearman, who is moving to
e trucks Taylor County after nearly 25 years
with Frito-Lay in Irving, Texas,


said he's looking to hire people
who want a career at the local
plant.
"Lance has an outstanding
benefit package as well as offering
competitive salaries," he said.


Spearman said a job fair will be
held this Saturday from 9 a.m. until
1 p.m. at the plant site to provide
prospective employees 'with
information. .
The company currently employs
68 people but will need many more
when the kettle chip line goes into


production in June.
Spearman said Lance bought
Cape Cod several years ago and
.with the new parent company's
marketing, sales have boomed.
He said a kettle-fried chip
involves a different process than
standard chips. The end product is
crunchier and has lots of flavor,
Spearman said.
S"One of the things that attracted
me to Lance is that they produce a
high-quality product and have an
excellent distribution system,"
Spearman said.
The Texas native said he is
looking forward to living in Taylor
County.
"I'm a Southerner, so this seemed
like the perfect place to re-locate. I
love to deer hunt. I can sit in a tree
stand all day," he said.
Spearman and his wife have
three grown daughters as well as
four grandchildren, the latest of
which was born Saturday.
"I ate some fried mullet for the
first time last week and I loved it,"
he said.

County faces



$350,000 loss

Counts officials have been told Taylor County will not receive some
$350.000 in antic ipated money from the state's "emergency distribution" of
a half-cent sales tax.
The money, which the county had included in its budget for this fiscal
year as revenue, is given to counties which meet certain thresholds based
on a per-capita rate.
To be eligible, the money distributed to the county government for the
prior fiscal year must be. less than the current per capital limitation, based
on the county's population.
- This budget year, the state per capital limitation was $40.49. The county
exceeded that limitation with a per capital amount more than $42.
Therefore it was ineligible for the funding for the. 2005-06 fiscal year.
County Clerk Annie Mae Murphy alerted the county commission to the
problem during a meeting in late March. The money, Murphy said, is used
for criminal justice funding.
The amount the county receives is. published annually in the Local
Gov emment Financial Information Handbook, the 2005 edition of which

Thanks to the Taylor County
Joint Drug Task Force (JTF) and
assisting officers,. a significant
amount of cocaine and marijuana,
along w ith suspected drug money
and tm\o vehicles used in the
commission of drug crimes, were
confiscated and taken off the
streets Friday.
Two arrests were also made in
the separate cases.
According to a report filed with
the Pen'r Police Department, JTF

.U


Anderson had been conducting a
surveillance operation in a known
crack cocaine area.
After witnessing suspicious
behavior, they dispatched
information to PPD Ptl. Gene
Franklin that a suspect had just left
the area with,a large amount of
narcotics in his car.
Franklin and TCSO K-9 Off.
Harper Gibson and partner,
"Jeremiah," made contact with the
white Ford Crown Victoria in
question, which had illegal window
tinting on tlie vehicle, said


Franklin.
The driver of the car, Kevin
Jackson, 28, was attempting to find
his car's registration when Gibson
walked Jeremiah around the
vehicle for a "free air sniff," to
which Jeremiah alerted.
Franklin said he told Jackson
that receiving an alert from the
TCSO K-9, "gave us permission to
search the vehicle for the presence
of illegal narcotics."
Franklin and PPD Ptl. Brian
'Curry conducted a search of the
vehicle and discovered a small


white coffee cup in the vehicle
containing a large plastic bag with
several pieces of crack cocaine,
according to Franklin.
Also found was a smaller plastic
bag containing more crack cocaine,
indicating to Franklin that this
cocaine was ready for sale.
At that point, TCSO Brian Cruse
and PPD Ptl. Gina Deeson placed
Jackson in handcuffs and told him
he was under arrest. During a
search of Jackson, Cruse
discovered a bag of marijuana in
his pants, along with $381.


The cocaine weighed out to one-
half ounce and was seized, along
with Jackson's vehicle, which was
driven to PPD, where it was
inventoried.

"May the works I've done
speak for me; Give her rewards
she has earned and let her works
bring her praises at the city
gates." Proverbs 31:31.
On Saturday April 1 at 3:30
p.m., B.D. Williams Court #200
celebrated the second annual
B.D. Williams Appreciation
Day at Spring Hill Missionary
Baptist, where the Rev. Izell
Montgomery is the pastor.
The attendance was good.
Most of the Masonic family
(women and men) were present.
The members of her family
present were her granddaughter,
Miss Regina Gail Griffin; her
daughter-in-law Mrs. Inez
Griffin; and her niece Ms. Jenny
Miller. The sermon was
delivered by the Rev. Herbert R.
Thomas Sr., Worshipful Master

Others include Heroine Joyce
Fuller, Most Ancient Matron,

Mrs. Katie Monroe and Mrs.

Daytona enjoyed a good trip, a
great spirit-filled convention,
and returned home safe and
well.
Mrs. Inez Griffin's
granddaughter of Miami, along
with others, visited with her
grandmother, Mrs. Griffin and
family. It was an enjoyable visit
with them and it made
grandmother so happy to see and
enjoy her granddaughter, one she
has not seen in several years.
She has happy and welcome
information any time she comes.
With love Grandmother and

General Sales Manager


My wife, Karen and I shopped for a car in Tallahassee for several weeks, More importantly, the vehicle itself was comfortable, reliable and we received great service and a great price.
We never went to Thomasville and I never even thought about it until that Thursday afternoon when I Became so frustrated with a Tallahassee dealer that I called Prestige Nissan.
Right-away, I was promised at least a $500 savings from any deal I could find in Tallahassee. And this promise came from a salestfin I never met and didn'teven know my name..,Yet!
The next day, we made the 30 mile trip to Thomasville,.It only took 30 minutes and We saved almost $3,000! 30 miles + 30 minutes = $3,000 savings! These Comments are Truly unsolicited,
The Sales staff and Management at Prestige Nissan had no idea what I might-say, But Karen IndI can't say enough.
We Drove home with a Sparkling new 2006 Nissan Murano SE (the same car we had been trying to negotiate in Tallahassee for about three weeks)
There was no Haggling and no "behind our backs talk" between the salesperson, the sales manager and the General manager We simply told Millie and Dan that we were there to buy a car.
All they had to do was to make us a good deal. AND THEYDID!
We left with'a GREAT deal and excellent car. We love it! Thank You Alan Young, Millie Espada'and Dan Crumpler and Thank you Prestige Nissan.


Sincerely,
Don and Karen Chapman

Taylor residents tour Israel


Julie High, 8, won second'
.place in the Solo Cheer'
..division. She is the first
.athlete to represent Taylor
Elite in a solo division.


By MARK VIOLA
Staff wnter/Rotarian
The Perry Rotary Club took a
trip to the Hohl Land--if only for
an hour--as guest speakers Ivan
Rowell and the Re\. Eddie Blalock
spoke about their own recent trip to
Israel.
Blalock and Rowell led a group
from First Baptist Church in late
January on a 10-da3 tour sponsored
by Educational Opportunities
Tours.
The\ began %kith a more than
10-hour flight to Israel, which has
a se'en-hour difference in time
zones.
,"It was a wonderful trip,"
Blalock said as he showed
photographs 'taken during the
tour.
One of the first things he stressed
wag how he was "not fearful at all"


while in Israel.
"It is not at all what we see on
our television sets," he said.
The tour began near the Sea of
Galilee and from there the group
visited a number of cities including
Capernaum, Tiberius, Caesarea
and Jerusalem.
According 'to Blalock, many of
the traditional locations of events
in the Bible now have churches and
cathedrals built over them.
Blalock said during previous
visits he wasn't sure whether he
liked this, but as cities have
now spread, he changed his
mind.
"They protect the sites," he said.
"If it wasn't for churches, they'd be
gone."
In some instances, different
denominations may disagree where
a particular event occurred and


ultimately build churches in
different locations. Other times,
several denominations may own
different parts of the same
church.
When they reached the Jordan
River, several "brave" people were
baptized, Blalock said. They were
brave because' at the time, the
water temperature was 52
degrees.
The group also visited a number
of ruins, including a Roman
amphitheater.
"You could spend hours if you're
a history buff," Blalock said.
In 'Jerusalem they visited the
Temple Mount with the Dome
of the Rock and the Wailing
Wall.
Blalock and Rowell agreed that
it was a good trip and they would
return again.


*The Rev. Eddie Blalock, left, and Ivan Rowell shared stories
of their recent travels to Israel.

Dear Editor:
I am writing this to express how
disappointing life can be for a
young person with a record living
in a small town. There are a lot of
young people in this town that
have had their share of run-ins with
the law. My thing is when these
people do make the right choice to
get their lives straightened out,
I where do they go?
I know some of these people and
no one wants to give them a chance
'when they have had a record, so
they close the door in their face.
Where do they turn? I'll tell you,

the streets or jail. If the folks
around here want to help stop
crime, then stop closing the door,
give them a job and get them off
the streets. I know a young man
that is trying to get his life together.
He finally got his foot in the door
and got a job, only to have a few
days later the law pull up while he
was working and arrest him for not
paying his probation. He was fired.
Which leads me to say that if
you're going to arrest somebody,
why in the world go to their job?

'I have a friend whose eyebrows are about
as expressive as her hands. She raises her
eyebrows in an arch like the Golden Gate
Bridge when she's telling you something
particularly intriguing, and she lowers them
to a serious look of consternation when the
news isn't good. ,
There are times in our friendship when
words are not necessary. She can speak
nine words, and raise those brows, and
suddenly I know volumes..
I, however, wasn't blessed with expressive
eyebrows. Mine go straight across like the
bridge over the Econfina River. But even
with straight eyebrows, I've learned to raise
them and my forehead in order to fire a
shot over the bow. The husband has said
before, "Don't raise your eyebrow's to me i t.
that tone." .
W.: hen my eyebrows go straight and flat, or
furrowi, in the middle, I'm confused by the
concept or troubled by its merits. Words
will surely follow, but you can interpret my
general inclination by the inclination of my
brows.
Having said that,-and all that, without the'
help of eyebrows (which don't translate well
in written words),. I submit myself for
excommunication from the church because
I'm simply horrible.
(Just so you know, my eyebrows are pretty
furrowed right now.)
I was scheduled to serve communion last
week at my church's observance of Maundy
Thursday which included the Lord's Supper.
I went willingly and I confess, with all.
honesty and sincerity, that my heart was in
the, right place. My mind was right. I
understood the significance of the
Thursday night in the week we now call
holy.
My friend with eyebrows was to serve that
night too, and this is not usually a problem.
We've worked together on numerous
committees and church. details; the,
eyebrows don't get in our way.
Communion would lbe served differently
that night, and because of that, the preacher
assembled us 30 minutes early to explain
how we would proceed with the distribution
of bread and grape juice.
*The church was quiet for reflection as the
few who attend the Maundy Thursday
service gathered on pews scattered
throughout the sanctuary.
The music was splendid--which surprised
me a bit. There's a lot of sadness in the
reality -of Maundy Thursday and, although
the lyrics recalled it, the musicians washed
the dust off ordinary life with their solos
and full-choir renditions.
All. was. going well; it looked like the,
burning candles might actually make it
through the service which is a detail I watch
--fearing for the carpet, fire, and mass
exodus.
The time came for those of us serving
communion to assume our places, standing
in front of.the congregation, with our backs
to those who had gathered, while we first
partook of communion. The instructions
for this occasion--and this occasion only-
had been to take the cup, drink, return the
empty cup to the tray and pass to the other
server,: until all eight servers had been
served.:,
We all have reasonable intelligence and
felt confident we could achieve this task
without disruption.
Nobody ever counted on eyebrows getting
in the way. I know I didn't.
The cup had passed from person one to
two, from two to three, and from three to
me. I drank, I returned the cup to the tray


I __ I


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN

and I held it for my friend with very
expressive eyebrows.
You could hear a pin fall, but none did.
As I held the tray, she reached for a cup.
and I wanted to swat her and say, "Not that-
one--somebody's already drunk out of it."
But I couldn't say a word so I prayed--
mightily that she would change the--
direction of her reach and go for a new one. -
That prayer went unanswered, probably-
because it was extremely trial. Her reach
continued in its initial direction and before
I could breathe, she had lifted a cup that
had only trace elements of juice and
someone else's saliva in it.
You should have seen her eyebrows-lift; -
the Golden Gate Bridge only wishes it could
1ar.fI af T-:hiaen d^.. ...
In the next second she looked at me, and I
knew she was asking, "What do I do? Do-I--
put it back like I'm shopping for a good cup,
or do I go ahead and drink after someone
else who has the flu or who knows what?" -.--
My eyebrows, though normally straight-
and narrow, lifted mightily too for this
occasion as if to suggest, "You can't put it
back nowi--you've got to drink it. Just drink
it nov. Now."
She heard my eyebrows and dutifully
drank, returning her cup to the tray and
passing it to the next person.
But then her head fell to her chest and I
knew she wasn't dead--that would be too
generous. I was pretty sure she was trying
not to. show any amusement at this
particular holy moment, and she. wasn't
being completely successful.
But anyone who's sat on.a church pew
knows, there are times when you simply
don't want to laugh, know you shouldn't
laugh, would pay $100 not to laugh, but the
battle is lost.
She didn't laugh. She merely breathed
deeply and fought off a deep, burgeoning
chuckle with a sobbing sound which made
me wish a hole would open up beneath my
feet anid drop me to a dungeon below (if not
hell which I surely deserved).
By the time we had to face the
congregation, we were composed. But- -1
kept trying to find her so that I could dodge
looking at her, and anytime. I found her so
that I wouldn't look at her, she'd find me
back. .
There she was with those eyebrows that I -
can read at 100 paces.
It was the most painful experience I can-,
recall. Fortunately, the choir took over-7
realizing that we were frail as dust.
The service was beautiful and ended with.
the pastor's bidding that we leave in silence.
Which we did.
I had almost escaped to my car when
someone slid beside me, outside the church,
and -started walking at my same pace.
"Don't talk to me," I whispered adamantly
to my friend., "We're going to be
excommunicated before Easter Sunday
because you can't control your eyebrows."
"Honey, I can't control anything," she said,
and my pace quickened as I sought out my,
vehicle and deliverance from my own sin
and humiliation.
"Surely the Lord won't poison me," she
said, recounting her horror at -the
communion table.
"And why not?" I asked.
Our eyebrows said goodbye until Easter
Sunday when we met again.
"Good morning," I said to her.
"Good morning," she said to me and then
added, "Nobody wants to sit with me."
"That's right," I said, fleeing from
temptation. "But have a Happy Easter."

So tell me, how are these people

should not be the only option.
Now, I hope you see what I am
talking about. Let's all step up to

people a choice other than crime.
You know the young people are tWe

Chili cook-off fires up festival


Taylor Elite Super Stars


This year's Rotary Chili Cook-
off, held during the Florida State
Bluegrass Festival earlier this
month, was "the best ever,"
according to the organizers.
"This year was the most
successful yet with more entries
than ever before, both from Perry
and out-of-town," Rotarian Dawn
Taylor said.
With almost 40 entries this year,
the judges were left full and in
need of some cold water by the
time it was over. They did,
however, last long enough to
declare the winners.
For Judges' Choice, Elouise
Gardiner took top honors, with
Bob Daniel in second and Kim
Mauldin third.
For the hottest chili, Lissa
Semmel placed first, Michael
Bagley second and Patricia Daniels
third.

Determination

and dedication

are recognized

that floor and compete in front of
'hundreds of people. And, Julie is
only eight years old! She spent
many extra hours with Coach
.Nicole (Whatley) perfecting her
back tucks and her layout. She set
an example for all of us with the
incredible amount of
determination and dedication she
displayed. We are all very proud
of her," Whiddon said.
Mandy Cornelius is also a coach
for the teams, along with assistant
coaches Taylor Brooks and Angela
Roberts.
