This past .Sunday, July 20, the
downtown landmark known to
many as the Peacock building (and
later as simply The Emporium)
icame crashing down, falling victim
to age and a collapsed roof.
"This was not something I took
lightly. It's like a g~eath in the
family. But the engineer told me
that the building just wasn't
salvageable. All we can do now is
look forward, not back," building
owner Earl Swann said.
"Myl next focus will be on
rehabitatii~g the second of two/
houses adjacent to the old To\ine
Square Grocery," he said.
The demolition began around
7 a.m., attracting a handful of
byvstanders who came armed with
cameras and video recorders to

"The building had one of the few
freight elevators in town, except it
wasn't the kind where you pushed
a button--it worked on a pulley. We
kept things like grain in the
basement and you would pull up
the order on the elevator and load it
onto a wagon. At that time, we also
delivered groceries with a horse

In 2007, the Taylor County
March of Dimes campaign had a
recording-breaking year, raising
more than $31,000 to aid in the
prevention of premature births.
This year, the campaign is
breaking more new ground,
revealing a newly branded
campaign title and bringing on
board the first ever mother-
daughter campaign chairs.
It was announced at the annual
Kick-off Luncheon, held Friday,
July 18, at Joyce's Main Street
Cafe, that the annual campaign
worldwide will be known as the
March for Babies.
Additionally, Perry Mayor
Emily Ketring, along with her
daughter Angel, were introduced
as this year's co-chairs.
Emily Ketring said she was
hesitant at first when she was
approached about chairing the
campaign, but then she thought
about her own struggles dur-ing her
pregnancy with Angel and changed

only half the story," she said,

if I wanted to co-chair with her and
I thought it was a great idea.
"I want to do this because I think
the Marc~h of Dimes is important
because they help babies. In fact,
they help babies like me. I want
more babies to survive like I did,"
"Although I do not remember, I
was born premature and my lungs
were not ready. The March of
Dimes invented the drug that
Helped my lungs and Iam thankful.
So it is now time for me to help
someone else and I'm asking you
to help too. Right now there are
babies that need our help just like I
did. Jizst imagine, there is a baby
being born right now that needs
our help. Who knows, maybe one
day in the future they might come
and say thank you for the help they
received," she said.
"Volunteering for donating
money for the March of Dimes is
Sso important because it can give
babies the help they need that can

At Friday's kick-off, Robin
Walker with the Healthy Start
Coalition of Jefferson, Madison
and Taylor Counties, spoke about
the agency's implementation of the
Whole Child program.
The program tries to create a "no
wrong door" culture, where those
needing government services will
be able to stop at one location, fill
out a single sur-vey, and havie that
information forwarded to all
agencies that can provide
assistance, Walker said.
The program is almost ready to
begin, she added, and asked for
help from local businesses who
might be able to provide a
computer at their location for
people to fill out the surveys.
Christy Lutz with the Taylor
County Health Department also
spoke, updating those present on
the department's Centering
Pregnancy Model program.
Under the program, pregnant
women with similar due dates are
grouped together (if they wish) for
the duration of their pregnancies.
According to Lutz, national
studies have shown women wvho
participate in group programs are
less likely to experience pre-terl"
labor and the babies are born an
average of one and one-half
The coalition recently received a
mini-grant from the March of

This series of six photos gives a second-by-second depiction of the collapse of the outer wall
of the old Emporium building (facing Green Street) during demolition efforts Sunday morning.
The force of the collapse sent large plumes of dust into the air and left bricks littering the
roadway, some reaching across the street. The building, constructed in 1923, was condemned
after its roof caved in last month. (Photos by Angela Castelucci)

The sad news
What we fear is the domino effect.
On Sunday, the old Emporium
building crashed to the ground,
taking with it nearly 100 years of
history and a lot of fond memories for
the people who grew up here.
Granted, demolishing this building
was the only viable option after its
ceiling collapsed and the walls wanted
to follow suit. Yes, renovation would
have been a good idea years ago but
some good ideas have a deadline.
Our great fear now is that the
Einporium just set a dangerous
In fact, we worry that the corners of
our downtown district are crumbling.
Just down the street from the
Einporium, the Bloodworth building--
which is near and dear to many in
this, community--is showing its age.
The ceiling of the building, now owned
by an out-of-town interest, is
deteriorating and quick action is
needed to restore and maintain it.

the ownership of an absentee landlord.
