Staff writer
A group of children walk down the sidewalk and
look up at the building on the comer. A few gasp
and in hushed voices whisper to each other while
several braver ones exclaim, "Look, it's the
haunted house."
Every town has one--some have several--and in
a community with a history as varied and colorful
as Perry, perhaps it is not too farfetched to think
that some spirits got lost on the way to the light.
The Greystone, the imposing figure of a building
that graces the corner of Jefferson and Bay streets
in downtown Perry, according' to local lore, has
seen its share of violence and intrigue.
There was the man who was mugged and killed
on the front porch during the days the building was
a boarding- house. There was the man who found
his wife in bed with someone else, and after killing
them both, hung himself from the ceiling in the
third-floor tower. Some people say they know
what happened in the house, but when pressed for'
details, refuse to reveal what they know.
None of this, however,, was known to,
Christopher James, a recent transplant from \West
Palm Beach, when he bought the Gre\ stone. It v. as
only after a series of une\plamned events that he
;'began to explore the home's history. During .his
short stay here, he tells of lights turned off found
ablaze upon returning to the house, windows stuck
shut suddenly opening and refusing to close, and
an upstairs rug tossed aside no matter how many
times it's moved back.
It was these and other occurrences that led
James to invite a group of self-described ghost
hunters to examine the building to see what--or
who--might still be there.
It-started off innocently enough. It was an
unassuming group of people thaf met Friday night
atia local fast food restaurant determined to take on
the unknown: James; his sister-in-law; James'
friend, a professional filmographer, and his
fiancee; a husband-and-wife team of ghost hunters
from Crawfordville; and one reporter.
As families and travelers ate dinner around us,
stories were swapped over hamburgers and:
chicken nuggets of unexplained incidents and first-,
hand encounters.
Then it, was time to drive to the house. After:
.-years of living in Perry, the Greystone had just
become another building on Jefferson Street.
This night, however, as we approached the
house, I was suddenly seven years old again and.
hearing tales from friends of a spectral woman
peering out from the tower window.

As Sheila and Mitch, the ghost hunters, prepared
their cameras and recorders in the kitchen, James
showed us a plant that had fallen victim to
something. He said that he had found it severed at
its base with the stems and lea\ esleft in a heap on
the floor. A speaker for the doorbell had been
pulled from the wall, he said, and dangled by its
-Of this, and the other events he described, I have
no evidence one way or the other. I can only tell of
what happened that night as we explored the old
. Jason, the filmographer, hefted his camera, and
we ventured further into the fist floor. Emotions
were high and we shared several jokes about what
we might find.
' The, atmosphere soon changed, however, when,
upon entering one room, James came to a sudden
stop and pointed to two chairs sitting side by side
in the center of the room. Clearly shaken, he told
us when he had'been in the house the night before,
the chairs had been against the wall.
John, a local history buff who has been helping
James gather information about the house, agreed,
.saying that he had been there the night before and,
remembered the chairs agamsi the wall.
We only had their ord that this was true. but we
did; stay closer together and nobody appeared
inclined to tell anymore jokes.
SThe first floor, other than the chairs, seemed to
be in order and it was time to tackle the second.
In the first room we entered, both windows were
open, and the curtains blew inward as if a decent
breeze was at work. Yet the night air had been still
and damp when we had been outside earlier. Also,
very. little wind was evident when we placed our
hands between the window and the curtains.
Was it just' a crosscurrent from the open
windows? A very likely explanation,,I told myself
as we explored the rest of the room.
Then why did I, with a nervous edge to my
voice, point out that the curtains seemed to be
blowing harder since we had entered the room?
" Sheila was using, her digital camera to
photograph the room when she said to us that she
sat. through the LCD screen, a shadow in the
window that could n1t be explained by what she
was. seeing with her' naked eye. Several of us
crowded around 'her, jockeying for a view, and two,
or three others exclaimed that they could see the.
same. It disappeared before I could see it though.
! The next room was bare, but James said there
had been two rugs in the center of the room. He

folded over, as if something didn't
want it there. He had finally moved
both rugs out of the room and the
problems ceased.
Sheila and Mitch decided to
move the rugs back into the room
and as Mitch and James did so, I
continued to snap photos as I had
seen the ghosthunters doing. The
idea was to take lots of photos to
see if any ghost showed up that

I did capture numerous strange
dots on most of the photos from

The ghost hunters said they

around captured by the camera. As
I cannot be called an expert in
digital photography or paranormal
phenomena, I will leave that up to
others for debate. What I will say
i, although we spent almost two
hours in the house, which was
surely dusty, this was the only
room in which the dots appeared in
the photos.

the 'curtains sparked alarm when
we noticed a doll on the mantle had
moved to the opposite side. We
found out quickly that somebody
had moved it to see if something
would move it back.
No one was eager to be the first
one to go up to the third floor.
Finally, Jason made the trip with
his camera and returned unharmed.
I figured it was my turn to try it out
on my own.
Even with the lights on, it's
amazing how scary a place can be
when you're expecting something'
to jump out at you at any moment.
It seemed that every third step I

was looking over my shoulder
knowing that I was being watched.
The rooms on the third floor
appeared to be a mixture of aborted
renovation attempts. A smattering
of paint here, a floor ripped up
Walking around alone, it wasn't
too hard to imagine reasons they
were never completed.
After we all finished a tour of the
floor, Mitch set up his own video
camera with night vision
capability. He and I were the only
ones there when something
happened that defies all my
attempts at explanation.
The camera was pointing into
the tower room, and through the
viewfinder the world was an
unearthly green from the night
vision. Some light could be seen
through the windows from a
nearby street light, but otherwise

We walked back down to the
second floor and I dully said to the
others, "I think I just saw an orb."
What a difference a few hours
We took a break from the
hunting and those who were
staying for the night left to get
,coffee and snacks.
, It was shortly after 1 a.m. when
we returned to the house, but

nothing appeared out of order. As
Sheila and Mitch prepared to settle
in for the night and moved their
cameras and recorders, I decided it
was time to leave.
Bidding farewell, I exchanged
numbers with Sheila and promised
to go along next time they were in
Taylor County.
On the drive home, I was
surprised at just how acute my
senses had become. After hours of
straining my eyes and ears for the
slightest unusual sight or sound,
my head was buzzing.
On the walk from-the car to the
house, I saw three ghosts--a potted
plant, a cat and a shadow. I laughed
at myself, but then I remembered

I looked over my shoulder and
.seeing nothing, quickly unlocked
the door and called an end to my
night of ghost hunting.

By Jeff Himmel
Near the end of His "sermon on the mount," Jesus said,
"Therefore, however you want people to treat you, so treat them,
for this -is the Law and the Prophets" (Matthew 7:12). We often
paraphrase this command as, "Do unto others as you would have
then do unto you." We have come to call it "The Golden Rule."
The point of this "golden rule" is not that we should do good~to
others in hopes that they'll do good to us. In fact, Jesus teaches us
to treat others well even when they treat us poorly. "You have heard
that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.'
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who
persecute you...For if you love those who love you, what reward
do you have ?.. .If you greet only your brothers, what more are you
'doing than others?..." (Matthew 5:43-47).
Jesus' parable of the Good Samaritan illustrates this teaching.
Read it in Luke 10:25-37. A lawyer asked Jesus what he should do
to inherit eternal life. When Jesus asked him what the Law said;
he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your
heart...and your 1)ei i hbor asyourself. "Jesus said he had answered
correctly. "But wishing ,to justify himself, he said to Jesus, 'And
who is my neighbor?'" (verse 29).
The lawyer's question implied that there must be some reasonable
limits on love and mercy. Surely God didn't want him to lIe
everyone, did He?
Jesus responded with a parable. Most of us know the store a
traveling Jew was robbed, beaten, and left for dead; a Jewish.prist
came upon the man and passed him by; another religious: leader
came upon him and also passed by; but then a Samaritan:cai e
along and compassionately took care of the man.
What modern readers often ignore is that the hero of the stjry
was a Samaritan. Most Jews despised Samaritans, viewing th*m
as half-breeds and heretics. The average Jew probably woul&d't
have stopped to help an injured Samaritan; but in Jesus' store a
Samaritan goes to great lengths to help an injured Jew. It \\as !he
last thing anyone would have expected. -
Jesus 'closed by asking the lawyer which man in the story was
"neighbor" to the wounded traveler. The answer was obvious: "lhe
one who showed mercy on him." By now the lesson -\as aso
obvious: "Go and do the same."
The Samaritan's act of kindness likely would have been neither
returned nor appreciated. But he did it anyway. Jesus' parable
teaches us that the "neighbor" we must love includes people w-ho
may not love us.
Most of us have little ,trouble going out of our way to do scine
act of kindness if we know we'll be rewarded for it, or if the rece i e r
is a friend. But what if we think no one will notice (Matt. 6:1 -4?
Better still, what if there's a good chance we'll be repaid with
contempt? Will we still be so ready to act? That is Jesus' challenge
to us. Rather than doing good to others in hopes of receiving gtod
from them, Christ asks me to put myself in their place. My
motivation is not to be self-interest, but love.
The apostle Paul wrote, "Owe nothing to anyone except to lbve
one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the lawv...
Love does no wrong to a neighbor; love therefore is the fulfillment
of the law" (Romans 13:8-10). The golden rule is not a substitute
for God's specific commands, but rather a motive for obeying them.
What command has God given that is not seen more clearly when
we view it as an expression of love for others?
The ultimate example of the "golden rule" in action is Jesus
Himself. He sacrificed His sinless life to offer forgiveness of sins
to all people. And He did so knowing that most of those people
would never accept His offer. "For one will hardly die for a
righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would
dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us,
in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romnans

career, he coached only one team
to a losing record; but more
importantly, he took his 1956, '58.

was at the free throw line in the
waning seconds and made the first
of two free throws, then
intentionally missed the second
when Billy Strickland (now
deceased) rebounded and put the
ball back in. Cedar Key took a
time-out, allowing the Bulldogs to
re-group. Strickland then stole the
inbounds pass to put the ball in at
the buzzer. "What a game!"
Barr also mentioned, as a
highlight, his three players who
went to college with scholarships:
Ken Lawson, Walt Lamb Jr. and
David Stewart. But he always
refrained from spotlighting just a
few key players.
"It wasn't my style to put one
player on a pedestal over another.
I enjoyed the relationships with all
the guys who. played for me and
have fond memories of all of
them," he said diplomatically.
Barr, whose Perry team was the
only Big Bend quintet to gain a
berth in the state tournament in
1957-58, received, what was
described as "emphatic support
from his fellow coaches" and was
easily named All Big Bend "Coach

Midweek Muddle

For three of my college summers, I
worked, in the parks and recreation
department of my fair city in South
"It's a good opportunity to make some
money," my father assured me.
"I think you'll like it," my mother chimed
in, and I didn't disagree.
My employer handed out bright orange
shirts--three sizes too big--for me and the
other workers to wear with white shorts.
Emblazoned on the front of each was the
verv official title of Parks and Recreation
"Youi will assist with tennis, three
mornings of the week," said the director, a
coach-like human being with unusually
short arms which made his waddle look like
that of an action figure wrestler.
I winced and tried to be polite, "I'm afraid
I don't know enough about tennis to assist;
I can barely play."
"Oh that doesn't matter," he said quickly.
"Mrs. Norman is a very capable teacher. She
just needs someone to help with class
control, handing out equipment, and so
"Oh okay," I said, knowing that it was,
important to be pleasant, cooperative and
"On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you'll lead a
pre-school class in the morning," he
continued, "and that's easy. Just eight or 10
youngsters for activities. Four days out of
the week, you'll do arts and crafts classes in
the afternoon for two different age groups,
and then help with answering the telephone,
setting up for reunions, and so forth."
My eyes were rolling back in my head.
"Mary Lucy will help: you with your plans,"
he assured me.
Mary Lucy was the calm and confident
receptionist whom I immediately identified
as qualified to run the department without
anybody else, including the man who hired
For my first day at the job, I donned my
orange shirt with an adorable pair of white
culottes and hit the tennis courts with Mrs.
Norman who just happened to be an
alcoholic and was hung over for the
"I'm not feeling so well," she said. "Why
don't you start off the class?"
"Mrs. Norman," I said in pure shock, "I
don't know anything about playing tennis,"
and I suddenly reminded myself of Prissy
and birthing babies on Gone With The Wind.
"Just divide them in groups and have
them volley against the wall," she said,
wiping her forehead as she sweated
I did as she asked. She barked orders
from her chair, and took generous chugs of
something from her thermos. We volleyed
and volleyed, until she got up to
demonstrate serving.
She whispered to me, "Just stand behind
me and help me stable myself, okay?"
When parental cars arrived to collect
children, a long 60 minutes later, Mrs.
Norman grabbed her tennis towel, racket
and cooler, and headed back to the staff
office, some 500 feet away, by car.
"If you need to make several trips to bring
back the balls and other equipment, that's
okay," she said to me, out her car window.
-Twice I walked up that hill, lugging
Thirty minutes later, I was hot and tired,
hot and mad.
I went immediately to Mary Lucy and said
in a shout of a whisper, "She's drunk!"
She looked at me kindly, as I studied her
peaches-and-cream complexion and
cropped strawberry blonde hair. Softly she
said, "She's always drunk."
Happy summer to me.
We had a couple of hours to prepare for
arts and crafts classes, which required us to
soak corn husks in glycerine for the making
of cornhusk dolls.

t don't you want to do,
he rest of the your life?


"She's a good tennis teacher; she just has
a drinking problem," Mary Lucy said as we
"Every day?" I asked.
"Nearly," she said, with a knowing chuckle.
And that was a close estimate. For three
months, I propped up that "very capable"
tennis teacher so she could teach young
things how to volley and serve, keep score
and win.
And I just kept thinking about what my
father said, "...it's a good opportunity to
make some money...."
.In arts and 'crafts, we moved from
cornhusk dolls to making candles. We
ruined three of Mary Lucy's best boilers in
that quest, but made wonderful candles for
half the county. We did decoupage, plaster
art and anything else you can think of which
creates a tremendous mess.
As we scraped plaster and wax off the
linoleum floor, she said, "Maybe your pre-
school classes will be easy," but she rolled
-her. eyes ina.vw.ay.bfich did not. hode-well
for me.,
At first, pre-schoolers are quiet and shy.
Twenty minutes later, the mothers were
long gone, and the pre-schoolers were
completely comfortable and very loud. You
simply can't plan too much for that 90
minutes when three-minute attention spans
are the norm, not the exception.
I shall never forget the boy student, who
dazzled me with his artistic ability as we
painted. It was fingerpainting, and most of
the children had created unrecognizable
things of which they were very proud.
There were abstract flowers, and blobs they
called their dog or their mother. I bragged
But this young man had obviously painted
me: in an orange shirt with green
eyeshadow (yes, I fear it was an: accurate
portrayal). "Wow, that's really good," I said
to him, patting him on the back. It was, so
unusual to actually recognize the painting,
that I was overcome with joy. So I ventured
to ask, "What are these black and .gray
shapes behind me?"
"Those are the tombstones where we're all
gonna be buried."
You could have knocked me. down with a
I said nothing, but looked at him for a
reaction. He, had none.
"Who, all, who?" I asked, like a confused
owl .
"Everybody in this class," he said. "Prob'ly
I looked at him and then at the' other
children. In true pre-school teacher form, I
said, "Let's sing!" and I grabbed the Disney
musical. collection where we made a circle
and belted out a few favorites.
It was a quiet evening at the dinner table.
"So how's your job going?" my mother
asked, as if it was a "Father Knows Best"
"It's a good opportunity for me to make
some money," I said dutifully, thinking that
if I repeated that statement long enough, it
would propel me forward.
Soon after that, they put me in charge of
the recreation' department's entry in the
Fourth of July parade. Our youngsters
pulled highly decorated wagons and
bicycles decorated in red-white-and-blue
around the Courthouse Square.
"I won't be back next year," I declared to
my mother, off to the side in the crowd, as I
sweated profusely.
But the following year, I was back.
And the year after that.
Repeat after me: it's a good opportunity
for me to make some money.
But you .know what? It's an even better
opportunity to find out what you don't want
to do for the rest of your life.
So get a summer job, any job. It's better
than getting the wrong one, for the whole
And when all else fails, "Let's sing!"

Why not shrink government?

Continued from page B-3

an- example, if you paid $100 per
month during the winter for heat
ihree-%ears ago, you will now pay
$2(i0 per month or more because
.gasprices have gone up just as
gasoline prices have. When you
consider that the City of Perry
will make so much revenue off
each dollar of gas sold, then you
-Will realize that the City of Perry
4is-making twice as much revenue
off gas sales,as they were three
-years ago, a hundred percent
_-Now they want to pack a 10-
rcent increase on top of that
_rxenue which would be a 20-
pergeent increase based on the price
-p~iEabout three years ago before
jpies went up. I am against the

increase because it is too much an
increase in too short a time span. I
simply do not understand why a
tax of that magnitude is needed in
light of the circumstances.
I think a more equitable
approach to increasing taxes would
be to spread any increases over a
larger part of the ,revenue base,
making the taix increase fair tii dlt.
That would serve two purposes. It
would raise the tax needed and the
city council would have to answer
to all taxpayers.
As a last point, I think the city
council should make every effort
not to raise taxes at all. Why not
shrink government a little bit?
They would have enough revenue
to operate and all the rest of us
would be a little happier.
