In Arizona




Dr. Shugar killed in skydiving accident


Dr. Joel K. Shugar touched the
lives of tens of thousands of
patients in North Florida and South
Georgia. However, first and
foremost. he was a devoted father
to his son. Adam.
It is that devotion that close
friends speak of as they remember
Shugar. who was killed in a
skydiving accident in Eloy, Ariz.,
on Memorial Day. He was 49.
Well-known throughout North
Florida for his work at the Nature
Coast Eyecare Institute, Shugar
had practiced in Perry for more
than a decade.
He fell to his death while taking


part in an invitational formation
skydive at Eloy's Skydive Arizona,
which is one of the world's largest
skydiving resorts.
According to Arizona
authorities, Shugar suffered
massive trauma from the fall and
was rushed to Casa Grande
Regional Medical Center where he
was pronounced dead.
"On May 26, at approximately
3:05 p.m., E'loy Fire and Eloy
Police Department were
dispatched to 4900 N. Taylor for a
skydiver down," Eloy Police
Department Public Information
Supervisor Amanda Villescaz said.


"When Eloy police got on scene,
they where informed of a skydiver
down east of the north landing
zone and that medics were loading
the skydiver into the ambulance
and transporting him to the Casa
Grande Regional Medical Center.
"Witnesses on scene stated that
the skydivers were doing a
formation exercise, when one of
the skydivers collided with Dr.
Shugar approximately 80 to 100
feet from their approach to
landing. Dr. Shugar was not able to
take control of his chute, which
caused a hard landing," Villescaz
said.


Shugar founded Nature Coast
Eyecare Institute in 1998; the
business planned to celebrate its
10-year anniversary in July of this
year.
"Dr. Shugar was passionate and
focused on whatever he did. He
was truly devoted to his son and
offered a lot of laughs for people.
He was really quite fun," said Scott
Keeler, who has known Shugar
since 1983 and has worked at
Nature Coast since it opened.
It is expected that the eye
institute offices will remain closed
for the week, but will re-open next
Tuesday, June 3.


"Several of Dr. Shugar's peers
have offered their help and
assistance. We anticipate that
another surgeon will be starting to
see patients next Tuesday," Keeler
said.
The institute has more than 30
employees.
"Many of those employees have
been there for five to 10 years. Dr.
Shugar was one of the better
employers in town," Keeler said.
Shugar began his annual "Gift of
Sight" program shortly after the
institute opened.

alleged dealers


A five-month, multi-agency
investigation targeting all levels of
illegal drug activity in Perry has
resulted in the arrest of some 18
alleged drug dealers.
Three additional suspects face
federal indictments on charges of
possession and sale of cocaine.
"The federal indictments were
handed down due to the large
quantity off'drugs purchased from
these men," Taylor County
Sheriffs Office (TCSO) Capt. Ron
Rice said. "These men were selling
a lot of cocaine in the county and
their ,arrest will make a large


impact on the availability of drugs
in Taylor County."
"Fourteen individuals were
arrested Friday for at least one of
the following charges: sale of
cocaine, sale of cannabis, or
possession of cannabis and cocaine
with the intent to sell. During the
course of the weekend, four
additional people were arrested in
relation to the investigation," Perry
Police Department (PPD) Capt.
Jamie Cruse said.
"There are four additional
individuals who are being sought
in relation to this investigation and


it is anticipated that they will be
located in the very near future. In
addition to state and local charges
levied against the 22 previously
mentioned individuals, the
investigation has led to three,being
indicted federally for narcotics
sales. These three individuals are
not included in the above totals,"
he added.
The individuals being sought
are: LaChadrick McBride, Jimmy
Welch, Louis Gaddy and Ricardo
Cook.

Are you prepared?


Hurricane season opens Monday


The 2008 Hurricane Season
begins Monday and local
emergency management officials
are urging Taylor County residents
to complete their preparations now.
The Atlantic Ocean hurricane
season runs from June 1 until Nov.
30.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
Climate . Prediction Center
announced last week that projected
climate conditions point to a near
normal or above normal hurricane
season in the Atlantic Basin this
year.


"Have a plan and don't wait until
-the last minute," said Taylor
County Public Safety Director Jeff
Manning.
Hurricanes have formed and
struck land in as little as 48 hours,
he added, so it is important to have
supplies and plans ready now
rather than when a warning is
issues.
Manning also urged resident to
heed any evacuations orders his
office may issue.
"We don't issue evacuation
orders lightly. We do it when we
think lives are in danger."


He urged residents to have their
disaster supply kit ready now,
because stores may sell out in the
days leading up to a storm. *
A well stocked kit should
include: water, non-perishable
food, cooking tools, blankets and
pillows, rain gear and sturdy shoes,
first aid kit, medicine and
prescription drugs, toiletries,
flashlight and batteries, weather
radio, cash, important documents,
tools and pet care items.
Due to state budget cuts, the

Manning given life in



prison for brutal attack


Telling her than she had
forfeited her right to live in society,
a circuit court judge sentenced
Alexis Manning, 25, to spend the
remainder of her life in prison
.during a hearing held Thursday.
Manning was facing a maximum
of two life sentences and a
minimum of 18 years for a brutal
assault in October as Circuit Court
Judge Paul S. Bryan presided over
the sentencing hearing, during
which the victim, along with her
mother, asked for the maximum
possible sentence. She was also
facing an additional life sentence
plus 60 years for violating her
probation stemming from an arrest
in 1998.


Alexis Manning


Ms. Manning,

you forfeited

your right to be

out here in

society.

--Judge Paul S. Bryan

-Manning pled guilty to charges
of armed robbery and attempted
murder earlier this month in
exchange for the State Attorney's
Office dropping a third charge of
armed kidnapping and agreeing to
forego a designation of prison
release re-offender.
According to State Attorney
Todd Hingson, on Oct. 12,
Manning and a second suspect,
Maurice Flowers, 20, attacked
Tonya LaFuente, who was on her
break outside Wal-Mart around I
a.m., forcing her at knifepoint to
drive her vehicle to an ATM at
Citizens State Bank and withdraw
money from her account.
Afterward, she was forced to


drive to a secluded wooded area
off Bacon Street where she was
beaten, stabbed more than 20 times
and left for dead. Despite her
injuries, LaFuente was able to drag
herself to her vehicle and drive
back to Wal-Mart, where she was
met by emergency medical
services.
The case against Flowers is still
pending.
The attack came less than three
months after Manning was
released from prison after serving
more than seven years for armed
robbery and attempted murder.
Public Defender Fred Castleman
Jr. made a case for a minimum
sentence, attempting to paint a
different version of the events
leading up the attack.
"This is a very serious case,"
Castleman said. "We understand
that this is a serious case. This case
is not what is appears to be on the
surface."
Telling the judge he was going
to "explain what I cannot prove,"
since drug dealers and others
would not come testify in court,
Castleman alleged the victim had
purchased drugs from Flowers and
owed him money.

"It doesn't have to be a bad
year," Manning said, pointing out
in 1992 the first hurricane did not
form until last August. That was
Hurricane Andrew, which
devastated South Florida.
When the storm struck, Manning
was a battalion chief in Broward
County, which was spared much of
the brunt of the storm. He was
among a number of rescue
personnel sent to help those in
Miami-Dade. County.
"I spoke to a guy who had been
stationed there for over 20 years.
He got lost trying to find his way
back to the station because there
were no landmarks left," Manning
said.
Property owners along the coast
will soon be receiving new re-
entry passes. The current passes,
which were distributed several
years ago expire at the end of the
2007 season.

"Living in a coastal state means
having a plan for each and every
hurricane season. Review or
complete emergency plans
now--before a storm threatens,"
said retired Navy Vice Adm.
Conrad C. Lautenbacher,
undersecretary of commerce for
oceans and atmosphere and NOAA
administrator.
The Climate Prediction Center
outlook calls for considerable
activity' with a 65 percent
probability of an above normal
season and a 25 percent probability
of a near normal season. This
means there is a 90 percent chance
of a near or above normal season.
The climate patterns expected
during this year's hurricane season
have in past seasons produced a
wide range of activity and have
been associated with both near-
normal and above-normal seasons.
For 2008, the outlook indicates a
60 to 70 percent chance of 12 to 16
named storms, including 6 to 9
hurricanes and 2 to 5 major
hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5 on
the Saffir-Simpson Scale).
An average season has 11 named
storms, including six hurricanes
with two reaching major status.
"The outlook is a general guide
to the overall seasonal hurricane
activity," Lautenbacher said. "It
does not predict whether, where or
when any of these storms may hit
land. That is the job of the National
Hurricane Center after a storm
forms."
Bill Read, director of NOAA's
National Hurricane Center, said,
"Our forecasters are ready to track
any tropical cyclone, from a
depression to a hurricane, which
forms in the Atlantic Basin. We
urge coastal residents to have a
hurricane plan in place before the
season begins and NHC will
continue to provide the best
possible forecast to the public."


Preparing for the worst
With the 2008 Hurricane Season almost here, Taylor County Director of Public Safety Jeff
Manning spoke to the Perry Rotary Club recently to discuss what residents and business
owners can to do to prepare for possible disaster. In addition to preparing a disaster kit, and
making sure you have enough supplies to last at least several days, Manning also urged
everyone to heed evacuation orders should they be issued. Shown above with Manning (center)
are Rotary Program Chair Dan Simmons (left) and President Mark Viola.

All of the suspects were taken

Sturgeon injures Mayo man


A Mayo man was slightly
injured Friday when he was struck
by a jumping sturgeon on the
Suwannee River. This is the first
reported sturgeon strike in 2008.
According to Florida Fish and'
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) officers,
Brian Mosley was boating one
*mile south of Ivey Park- in
Branford when a sturgeon leapt in
front of his boat. "
Mosley ducked, and the fish hit
the boat's cowling, striking
Mosley on the back and bruising
him slightly. Mosley declined
medical services.
The fish did not survive the
encounter.
FWC officials remind boaters
that sturgeons are returning to the
Suwannee River to spawn, and the
agency wants to alert boaters to
the risks of jumping sturgeons.


"There are signs posted at all the
boat ramps along the Suwannee,
explaining the risk of impacts
with these fish," said Karen
Parker, public information
coordinator for FWC's North
Central' Region. "Boaters have.
been seriously injured when hit by
these fish. This is the first
reported sturgeon strike for 2008.
Let's hope that it's the last. We
recommend boaters reduce their
speed to- reduce the risk of


impact."
Biologists are unsure why
sturgeons jump. The fish winter
in the Gulf of Mexico and enter
the Suwannee in the summer and
fall months to spawn. They can
grow to 8 feet in length and weigh
up to 200 pounds.'Sturgeons are a
protected species and cannot be
harvested.
To report sturgeon collisions,
call 1-888-404-FWCC (3922).


Each of the three teams involved
in Monday's spring football
jamboree -- hosted by theTaylor
County High football team --
went home with a victory and a
loss.
The event was moved to
Monday at 5 p.m. after thunder
storms threatened Friday night's
originally scheduled kickoff.
Taylor County got off to a slow
start, falling to Florida High 35-6
in the first two quarters of play.
Dixie County then upended the
Seminoles 22-14 in the second
half of play before the Bulldogs
came on to stop the Bears 28-8 in
the final half of the jamboree.
The Bulldogs, playing without
several key starters including top
returning running back Bryckoski
Jackson, found themselves trailing
14-0 after Florida High's first three
positions.
Then Quentin Tucker took a
Seminole kickoff and dashed some
60 yards with the return to
apparently put the 'Dogs in
business deep in Florida High
territory only to have the play
nullified by a holding penalty.
The Seminoles scored two more
times before the Bulldog offense
finally got on track.
Midway through the second and
final quarter, Tony Jackson broke
free on a 12 yard run followed by a
22-yard pass from quarterback Ty
Crowley 'to Matt Burrell. Crowley
then kept the ball on an option to
the right side and dashed 38 yards
to give the Bulldogs a first down
at the Florida High 12.
But the drive stalled three and
Crowley's 34-yard field goal
attempt waslckd, ad
Seminole player scooped up the
loose ball and raced some 50 yards
before being dragged down at the
TCHS 39.
A few plays later, a vicious hit
by the Taylor County defense
jarred the ball lose and Johnathon
Smith picked up the loose ball and
scampeired 81 yards, to the
Bulldogs' lone score of the game.
The PAT was blocked, making the
score 28-6 with 1:38 left in the
contest.
Florida High then returned the
ensuing kickoff 98 yards to make
the final score 35-6.
A fired up Dixie County team
then took on the Seminoles in the
second half of the three-half
. jamboree and came away with a
22-14 victory.
In the final game of the
evening, the Bulldogs upended'
Dixie 28-8 with mostly jayvee
squads from both teams playing
the first quarter before the varsities
squared off in the final stanza.
The Bears drove as deep as the
Taylor County 36 on their first
possession before Tony Jackson
stepped in front of a errant Dixie
County pass and raced 66 yards to


the touchdown. Tucker, .now
playing quarterback, ran in the
two-point play to put the 'Dogs
up 8-0.
After a defensive stop, the
Bulldogs quickly scored on a 70-
yard "pass play from Tucker to
Lakaedric Woodfaulk to go up 14-
0. The point-after try failed.'
Tucker was back at it a few
minutes later, scoring on a 55-yard
run to put the 'Dogs up 20-0. The
PAT failed.
Dixie County finally got on the
board late in the first quarter on a
60-yard pass play to narrow the
score to 20-8.
The Bears pounced on a Taylor
County fumble on the 'Dogs' next
possession, setting up a potential
scoring possession at the 30 yard.
line.
But the Bulldog defense stiffened
as Tucker downed the Bear running
back on a fourth down play at the
12.
The Bulldogs took over and
immediately went to work. Cotye


Riley ran for 12 yards and a "first
down setting up Crowley's 60-yard
touchdown pass to Lavaski
Williams with 4 minutes left in
the contest.
Crowley then hit Reggie Kink
for the two-point conversion to
make the final score 28-8.
Bulldog Coach Price Harris said
he was pleased with the way his
offensive and defensive lines
played, especially against Dixie
County.
"Florida High came out with a
different offense than we had
prepared for so that caught us
offguard," the coach said.
Harris singled out the offensive
line play of Cody Davis, Tyler
Jenkins and Jesse Braswell as well
as Steven Ghent's play on the
defensive line.
. "It's a spring jamboree game so
we tried to play everybody. We
never really put that much
emphasis on winning, but its
good when you can do it," the
coach said.

THANK YOU, TAYLOR COUNTY!

You welcomed our family to minister among you forty five years ago.
You kept us as friends during our time of service in other places. Then you
trusted us enough to allow us to come back to share in your most personal
dreams, hurts, and successes these last nineteen years.

Ola Baker, the heart of our family, left Perry early last Saturday morning
to go to the Father's House.

Now, at the time of the devastating loss of Ola, your flood of visits,
cards, hugs, gifts, and personal acts of kindness and service help us be
reminded that God's love is real, awesome and wonderful.

Victim recounts attack


MANNING
Continued from page 1
Flowers then enlisted the help of
Manning, promising her a cut,
Castleman said.
He also stated that her previous
crimes had been committed when
she was 16 and under the influence
of an adult male.
"What we have is not a leader,
but a follower," he said.
He argued that even the
minimum sentence would be "a
very long sentence. If my client
was to serve up to 20 years in the
Department of Corrections, you'd
have to call that justice, because
justice is somewhere between the
lowest permissible prison sentence
and the maximum."
Several family members
provided written letters during the
pre-sentence investigation, but no
one spoke during Thursday's
hearing.
Hingson began his comments
by describing the events that led to
Manning's previous prison
term.
In November 1997, Manning
held a motel clerk at Best Budget
Inn at gunpoint and stole an
undisclosed amount of cash. She
also Went into the convenience
store located' next to Wilson's Bait
& Tackle on South Byron Butler
Parkway, stabbed the clerk in the
back of the neck near the spinal
cord and then chased the woman
around the store before escaping
on foot.
When caught, Manning
confessed to both robberies,
entered a plea of "no contest" and
was sentenced to almost nine years
in prison.
Hingson pointed out that
Manning could have faced life in
prison for the offenses but was
presumably given leniency due to
her age.
Hingson then gave a step-by-
step account of the attack on
LaFuente.
"While [LaFuente] is driving
(from the bank), she hears this
defendant tell Mr. Flowers, 'We
need to kill her. We don't need any
witnesses,'" Hingson said.
Once at the secluded area, "she
is pulled out of the vehicle by her
hair. She is told that if she calls the
police, 'I am part of a gang and
they will kill your (expletive) kid..
"At this point Mr. Flowers
punches her in the face, knocking
her to the ground and then this
defendant. (Manning), who is
before you asking for mercy, then
repeatedly stabs her over 20 times.
While stabbing her she is laughing
and she is giggling, saying, 'I am
going to kill you, you (expletive)
b---h.'"
Hingson also stated that the
abduction was witnessed by
employees at Wal-Mart and that
Manning and Flowers were caught
on video surveillance.
Additionally, he said that
Flowers' statements to authorities
did not line up with the story laid
out by Castleman and that the
attack was motivated by money,
not drugs.
"What Ms. LaFuente will tell



Jobless



rate falls

Taylor County's unemployment
rate fell for the third straight
month in April to reach 4.5
percent, the lowest level since
November.
SThis represents 389 jobless out
of a labor force of 8,646,
according to numbers released this
week by the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation (AWI).
The unemployment rate fell 0.3
percent in April but was up 0.6
percent from a yeir ago.
The county's unemployment
numbers fell 0.1 percent in March,
after dropping 0.4 percent in
February from a recent high of 5.3
percent in January. The rate was
4.8 percent in December, a 0.3
percent increase over the month
before. The rate increased 0.3
percent in November and 0.2
percent in October.
For April, Taylor had the 34th
highest unemployment rate out of
Florida's 67 counties. In March,
Taylor was ranked 32nd.


Florida's unemployment rate
remained steady in April at 4.9
percent, slightly below the
national rate of 5.0 percent.
Of Taylor's neighbors, Madison
County had the highest
unemployment rate with 5.7
percent, followed byDixie County
at 5.4 percent.


you is in this criminal episode
there was a clear leader and clear
follower. And Ms. LaFuente will
tell you the clear leader was Alexis
Manning." Hingson.
"She is asking that this defender
never ever get out of prison. She is
scared of her. She is scared she will
hurt someone else. And as she said.
she had received a life sentence.
She has a life sentence of being
disabled.
"If she received a life sentence.
Ms. Manning deserves a life
sentence. In fact. she deserves the
maximumn"
LaFuente's mother. Martha
Ratliff, then spoke, also asking for
the maximum sentence.
"I don't wish death on nobody,
but this has brought a great deal
of... I not so sure to say anger, but
hurt," Ratliff said. "I've never seen
anything like it before."
She spoke about how the attack
has physically and emotionally
affected her daughter. "It's a
devastating thing," she said.
"If it hadn't been Tonya out on
that bench, it would have been
somebody else. I believe that in my
heart. They were out to get
somebody, and it didn't matter who
is was, young, old, or what,
employed, unemployed. They
were going to do it."
Then it was LaFuente's turn to
speak. She started by stating that
she had never met Manning or
Flowers prior to the attack.
She said the two approached
while she was on break and told
her ,they had just gotten off a
Greyhound bus and were there to
get a soda.
"As fast as that, she (Manning)
had my hair and a knife to my


throat." LeFuente said.
She added that since the attack,
she cannot feel her legs, although
she is able to walk very short
distances with the help of a walker.
"Every day I cry for the loss of
my legs," she said.
"All I did was go to work to
support my family.
"I just ask that she never be able
to do this to anyone ever again,"
she said, asking the judge to
sentence her to life.
"I have to get on with my life
and stop living in fear."
"She (Manning) is an extreme
danger to our community to re-
offend and hurt someone else, if
not kill someone else," Hingson
said.
Judge Bryan then asked the
defendant, who had been sitting
during the duration of the hearing,
if she wished to speak. When she
shook her head "no," the judge said
she should stand "because I'm
about to sentence her."
For the violation of probation,
he sentenced Manning to life in
prison for the first count (robbery
with a deadly weapon), and 30
years each for the second and third
counts (attempted murder and
robbery with a weapon), with the
three sentences to be served
concurrently.
For the attack on LaFuente,
Manning was sentenced to life in
prison on both counts to be served
concurrently, but consecutive to
the life sentence for the violation
of probation.
"Ms. Manning, you forfeited
your right to be out here in society.
Really, you forfeited that right
twice," Judge Bryan said after
delivering his sentence.

B-2 Taco Times May 28, 2008


Parent speaks out on



'prank,' punishments


Dear Editor:
As a parent of one of the "08
pranksters," I feel it is necessary to
set the record straight about what
happened on April 24.
.As you can imagine, we have
hb erd many storiesN about what
happened that night. We have
heard "partial" truths and outright
lies. We have heard how these
students "should be punished"
because what they did was wrong.
Wtihat most people don't know is
what really happened that night
and the penalties (yes, that's plural)
that have been handed down. Most
people don't know that these
students and parents asked for
punishment that would humiliate
them rather than send them home
to remove them from sight. But
you will know when you are done
reading this!
'It began as an innocent senior
prank. Senior pranks have been
going on for years and they will
continue. As we have learned, the
bulk of this group had met
previously to discuss what they
thought would be a good, funny,
arid harmless prank. They were
very deliberate in their planning
that nothing would be damaged.
They did .not want to destroy


anything. Rather, it was supposed
to be funny, comical, something to
remember for years--a prank.
So it began. These students
entered the school grounds through
an open gate. This gate has been
addressed on several occasions as
being a security, problem. Next,
they entered through one of three
open windows. No doors or
windows were vandalized in order
to gain entry. This is another
security issue. Once inside the first
room, one student went through
the ceiling and unlocked the next
door. This process continued until
all of the rooms were open with the
exception of 15 rooms (not two as
stated by Superintendent Oscar
Howard). No ceiling tiles were
damaged. As the doors were
opened, the desks were removed
and placed either in the courtyard
or in the hallways. The desks were
moved in an upright position and
were not damaged. The desks .in
the courtyard were arranged in .a'
classroom setting.
Once all of the desks were out,
the students, sprinkled confetti on-
the ground and hallways, put toilet
paper streamers up, put Vaseline
on the door knobs and wrote their
class motto on some desks and


walls. However, no one has yet
mentioned that the markers that
were used were dry erase markers,
they wiped right off. There again,
nothing was to be damaged or
permanent. Some of the students
have stated that it was not like
breaking into a store, but rather
like entering their "home away
from home" to play a joke on their
friends/peers. You see, when you
are 18 years old and you have been
going to school fof 13 years, the
school becomes a very
comfortable place to you. A place
you feel is yours. A place where
you feel you can be yourself.
Compare this prank to last year's
prank of cutting down trees in the
courtyard and spray painting the
building and sidewalks with
permanent paint that is still there
today. No one was punished for
last year's prank because they
remained silent. We have raised
and encouraged our kids to tell the
truth. What kind of message is the
'school sending to other kids when
you lie and get away with- it versus
telling the truth and getting
crucified?
The next morning found most of

'Perry Angel' amazes visitors


Dear Editor:
I had the pleasure of visiting an
amazing woman in Perry on April
5 through 11. I am just one of her
many adopted children. At 86
y&ars of age the "Perry Angel,"
Mi9iS!BeniI Duval, never ceases to,
amaze me.
She is well known in your town
and well loved. She is the one that
changes the flowers in front of the
court house every time they are
seen wilting. If I listed all of the
people she has helped, it would fill
a book. She has seen and been
through so much hardship in her
life and yet she bounces back with
a smile and is always a helping
hand. I've known her since birth
and she is one of God's many
servants. We should all take notice
of how much this wonderful lady'
has given to her community. When
you see her in her little red station
wagon with her dog Chi Chi and
7.6- angels on the dash (people
always add more), honk your horn
or just say thank you to her for all
the wonderful things she does for
so many.
I had the pleasure of meeting


123 S. Jefferson Street
Perry. Florida


two of her special friends, Pat and
Tommy, during my visit. Tommy
was your police officer and had a
stroke that put him in a wheel
chair. He collects elephants and
has over 2,000 of them. His wife
Pat is taking care-of him. She also.
has written a book called "Faux'
Elvis" and is studying for her
Master's degree. She put wood
flooring in her kitchen, tiled her
bathroom and takes care'of three
rental properties (another amazing
woman). Tommy is just one of
Miss Betty's stops.
She keeps him stocked with
fresh flowers and a huge smile
comes over his face that could
light up the room. He loves to have
company and show off his
elephants. My son Caleb- and I
enjoyed the time we had gazing
upon his beautiful collection and
watching his excitement as he
'showed them to us!
I would. really like to ,say a
special thank you to the staff at the
Hampton Inn. We. are from
California and have stayed ind
hotels iri Las Vegas and more.

Where did military news go?


Dear Editor:
For as long as I can remember,
the Perry News Herald included
information about our military
personnel in the "A Glance at the
Past." That is until recently. It
seems that limiting "Quotable


Quotes," or other seemingly filling
information, could make room for
posting events in the lives of men
and women from our community
that served in the military.

There were no computers
damaged, no cables cut, no glass
broken. no paint to clean up, no
permanent markers to clean up--
"no permanent damage" as quoted
by M'. Michael Thompson,

our athletic teams stealing from
another team's locker room, where
they only received three days
suspension and missed one game?
How can a senior prank penalty,
where they entered through an
open window, and did no damage,
exceed the penalty for someone
who entered through an open door
and stole drinks, where they only
received three days suspension?
The penalties at Taylor County
High School are not consistent!
The school's discipline matrix
states that, for unlawful entry, the
penalty is "10 days suspension




Students?'
There are other punishments
more suited for the situation that
will teach these fine minds the
responsibility of paying for their
mistakes and still achieving their
goals in life. Also you're punishing
the parents, friends and relatives of
these children by refusing them the
honor we as proud parents worked
so hard to achieve to watch our
children walk those steps into their
adult life and begin to be a
productive member of our society.
So please reconsider your
actions and let's not turn these
children into quitters. Let's look
past this onto the bigger picture:
their future. Let them walk proudly
to receive their diplomas and go on
to make Taylor County proud to
have given them the knowledge
and smarts to become who they
will be. Please let them walk with
their honor.

with recommendation for
expulsion possible." It was stated
in the beginning by the principal,
that the discipline matrix would be
followed. Each student later met
with the school board individually.
Each student received the same
punishment. That is, according to
the matrix. 10 days suspension
with the board voting not to expel
the students. During this .10-day
suspension, these seniors also lost
their prom privileges, and five of
the seniors who had already paid
for their senior trip to New York,
lost that as well. In addition to this,
these students have been banned
from all school grounds. This
includes ball games, practice
fields, banquets and any school
function until 'May 31.
Furthermore, they have to finish
their school work at Taylor
Technical for the rest of the school
year, and they are not allowed to
walk across the stage at
graduation. They cannot even
attend graduation and cheer on
their classmates.
I want everyone to know that
we, the parents and students, know
that our kids did wrong. We are not
arguing that at all. The principal
said he would go by the discipline
matrix. These students have served
their 10 days suspension. They
received "0's" for the days they

missed. Since all of these students
have college plans, this affects
their GPA and that is important.
These are however, students that
are included in the top 20 percent
of the class. These students are a
part of the senior class that brought
this high school's grade up to a
"passing grade" just this year. How.,
much discipline does a senior
prank warrant?
I think our principal,'
superintendent and school board;
have failed to realize that the'
penalty stage has ended, and,
enough is enough! These studeitts.
have learned valuable lessons.,
They have learned that life is not
always fair. They have learned that
team work can accomplish more.
than working alone. They have
learned that they need to control
their own lives and not leave it in
the hands of others.
Maybe now, the vast majority of
people will be able to understand
what actually happened that night.
Hopefully, you can understand:
now that the school was not
"trashed and vandalized" as other
reports have stated. Always
remember, there are two sides to
every story, and you have now
heard it from ground zero.
Thank you for taking the time to
