To honor pilot's sacrifice
Eyewitnesses sought for
1955 Naval aircraft crash
While on a training mission
back from Pensacola NAS to
Cecil Field near Jacksonville,
Lt. (jg) Robert C. Allison
incurred an in-flight emergency.
This emergency forced Lt.
Allison to attempt to land his
F2H4 Banshee aircraft on the
Mayo highway about 18 miles
East of Perry.
Unfortunately upon his
attempt to land he found himself
face-to-face with several trucks
heading west which blocked
his potential runway. As
written in the Aug. 18, 1955,
edition of the Taylor County
newspaper, "Witnesses said,
Allison deliberately crashed his
plane into a marsh alongside
the highway to avoid hitting
two trucks. Neither truck driver
saw the plane approaching until
too late to get out of the way.
When Allison swerved from
the roadway, passing within
a few feet of the closest truck,
his plane hit the ground just off
the highway, one wing tip hit a
small tree and the fuselage of
the plane struck a large cypress.
The aircraft disintegrated and
parts of the plane came to rest
several hundred feet from the
point of impact."
Unfortunately, the only four
known eyewitnesses to this
tragedy was Lt. Allison, his
wingman and the two truck
drivers. I am trying to contact
anyone who has firsthand
knowledge of this incident
such as the two truck drivers,
emergency responders and

much information as possible
relating to this crash. Without

ultimate sacrifice. In addition,
we will be requesting that a

at the time, Lt. (jg) Robert C._Allison, the pilot of the plane, was killed in the crash, which occurred during an
attempted emergency landing on the Mayo-highway about 18 miles east of Perry. An engine is enclosed in the
large circle and a part of the fuselage in the smaller circle. Sheriff Maurice Linton's staff and the Florida Highway

My aunt and I sell used furniture, as if
we were giving away kittens.
We want a good home for both.
In my childhood, I loved a cat named
Prissy Mittens. Don't bother yourself
wondering why that was the cat's name;
I named the cat and that was her name.
The greatest gift Prissy Mittens ever

who-at the time had a dining room table
full of Girl Scout cookies to distribute to
all troops in the city, wasn't as charmed
by the births.
"What are we going to do with all these
kittens?" she asked, knowing that my
father had distanced himself from this
dilemma, as well as the cookie dilemma,
"We can keep them," I said with hope
"No, we can't keep all of them," she
And so she began making calls, to
friends and neighbors. "If you need a
kitten, we have 10. They are beautiful.
You can have the pick of the litter."
Then, as an afterthought, she would
say, "We have Girl Scout Cookies too.
Would you like a box?"
I remember standing at the end of the
hallway, where the phone could always
be found, happy she was peddling
cookies, but horrified by her willingness
to give away our offspring.
So I cried. "The kittens need a good
home," I said, in tears.
"Oh, these people will provide them
with a good home," she insisted,
smoothing my hair back. "I didn't call
anybody who wouldn't give them a good
Then she reminded me of our
agreement, at the first sign of Prissy
Mittens' pregnancy, that we couldn't
keep all the babies.
"But ten's not a lot," I said, still
"You can keep one, and you can go
pick that one now," she said, pushing
me toward the new family. She didn't
understand, I don't believe, that this
was like me deciding between my own
children--which one to keep, which one
to discard. It was painful. But, under
the pressure of an approaching audience
which she had beckoned by phone, I
made my choice.
Then holding that one kitten tightly
and stroking the tired old mama cat, I
looked sadly at everyone who came to
see the kittens; they were taking my

children. This made the marketing
process particularly awkward.
"I don't want to take anything from
her," said one father. After getting my
mother's assurance that I would be
okay, he bent down and told me I could
visit the kitten anytime I wanted.
I always liked that man. He would give

And so the process went, although
longer than my mother would have liked.
Those kittens grew pretty fast, but soon
we were down to Prissy Mittens and her
son, whom I had christened 007 for his
stealthlike, undercover tactics. He was a
joy to behold.
To my father, my mother said, "I am so
glad to be through giving away kittens.
I've called everybody I know. Now I've
got to sell cookies...."
To me, she said, "We found very good
homes for all nine kittens. You have
nothing to worry about. Just remember
them in your prayers."
Which I did.
Recently, my aunt called to report that
she had sold two of my mother's living
room chairs as well as the tufted, ivory
satin sofa which they surrounded. I
knew she had a prospective buyer, and--
given her ability to sell ice to an eskimo
--I was confident she would prevail.
But she was clearly rattled by the
"Let me tell you what did it," she said,
and it was obvious she had practiced her
story. "That woman owns an upholstery
fabric shop here in town and I asked her
what she planned to do with the sofa.
She told me about this beautiful black
tapestry fabric she has in stock with
palm trees embroidered on it. I knew
it would look wonderful on the sofa,"
she said. "When I heard that, I told her
she could have the sofa for the price you
She waited for the desired reaction.
"Then she asked about the chairs.
She wants to keep the fabric on them
because the print has a shade of that
new mossy green that you see in all the
decorating magazines," my aunt said,
describing the look with great detail.
"She's just going to repair the springs
and touch up the wood trim."
Again, she paused and listened closely
for a reaction. I felt her countenance
lift as I suggested, "So they have a good

Congressman Steve Southerland has announced his
appointment to the House Committee on Transportation and
Infrastructure, which includes seats on two key subcommittees
that shape economic growth, job creation, infrastructure
development and tourism across North Florida.
"My role on the House Transportation Committee affords me
the critical opportunity to fight for new North Florida jobs and
make necessary infrastructure improvements while keeping
wasteful spending in check," said Southerland. "As American
families struggle to do more with less, I am committed to
modernizing our nation's infrastructure and boosting travel and
tourism without breaking the bank."
Southerland will serve on the Aviation Subcommittee, which
oversees air traffic modernization, travel and safety measures, and
the Highways and Transit Subcommittee, which monitors road,
bridge and transit construction, as well as highway safety.
Transportation Committee Chairman John Mica said,
"Congressman Southerland's experience as a small business
owner makes him a valuable addition to these subcommittees, and
will allow him to immediately contribute to the work of producing

WHEREAS, in 1872, J. Sterling
Morton proposed to the Nebraska
Board of Agriculture a special day
be set aside for the planting of
trees, and WHEREAS, this holiday
called Arbor Day, was first
observed with the planting of more
than a million trees in Nebraska,
and WHEREAS, Arbor Day is now
observed throughout the nation
and the world, and WHEREAS,
trees can reduce the erosion of our
precious topsoil by wind and water,
cut heating and cooling costs,
moderate the temperature,
produce oxygen, and provide a
habitat for wildlife, and WHEREAS,
trees are a renewable resource
giving us paper, wood for our
homes, fuel for our fires and
countless other wood products,
and WHEREAS, trees in our city
increase property values, enhance
the economic vitality of business
areas, and beautify our community
and WHEREAS, trees wherever
they' are planted, are a source of
joy and spiritual renewal.
NOW THEREFORE, We, the
Cit' Council of the City of Perry,
Florida, do hereby proclaim
January 21, 2011 as Arbor Day in
the City of Perry and urge all
citizens to celebrate Arbor Day and
to support efforts to protect our
trees and woodlands, and
FURTHER, we urge all citizens
to plant trees to gladden the heart
and promote the well being of this
and future generations.
The City of Perry
celebrated Arbor Day with a
tree-planting ceremony at
Heritage Park Friday, Jan. 21.

Join the North Florida
Community College Artist
Series for a high-energy, fast-
paced variety show by The
Lowe Family on Thursday,
Feb. 3, at NFCC's Van H.
Priest Auditorium beginning at
Versatile on many
instruments, the nine Lowes
offer a blend of show-stopping
classical, Broadway, Irish, jazz,
bluegrass, old-time favorites,
spectacular dance, six-part
harmony, gospel, a stirring
patriotic tribute and more.
"Think colossal. Then think
beyond that," entertainment
reporter Julie Kilmer said.
"Only then do you have an idea
of the titanic amount of talent
within the Lowe Family.
They're a miraculous
combination of every kind of
musical, theatrical and dance
talent you can dare to imagine,
and then some!"
The Lowe Family has been
entertaining hundreds of
thousands around the world for
over 25 years. All seven of the
Lowe Family siblings began
studying and performing the
music of the masters from very
young ages. Soon additional
instruments, dance classes, and
vocal lessons were
added...along with more
teachers and more practice
Featured on ABC, CBS,
PBS, Time-Warner and other
stations worldwide, the Lowe
Family has distinguished
themselves as consummate
performers across the globe,
giving select concerts in
Europe, Canada, Latin America
and China, while continuing to
captivate audiences throughout
Most recently, the Lowe
Family appeared with the
Tabernacle Choir and orchestra
on their national TV and radio
broadcast. They also have been
featured as special guests
during the Olympics and on
China's New Year's celebration
Tickets are on sale now, $12
for adults and $6 for NFCC
students and children ages 12
The performance is
sponsored in part by the State
of Florida, Department of State,
Division of Cultural Affairs,
the Florida Council on Arts and
Culture, and the National
Endowment for the Arts.

notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mall a
copy of the petition to the applicant
at the address indicated above, at
