Donation drive
launched to
help Alabama
town ravaged
by tornado
By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
Rainsville, Ala., a small town
in the northeast corer of the
state, is like Perry.
It is home to less than
8,000 people living in a close-
knit community situated at
the intersection of several
highways.
"It's got a Perry feel to it,"
said Dawn Gunter, who was
raised in Rainsville until she
was 15.
Now, however, she's not sure
she would be able to find her
way through the town.
Last week, on Wednesday,
*April 27, an EF-4 tornado
devastated Rainsville, killing
35 people, injuring about 100
more and deltro. ing a reported
304 structures.
Many of the town's
landmarks have been severely
damaged, including the local
sports amphitheater and part
of the school. while others
have simply been wiped away.

A Dbnght blue sky has replaced the ceiling in this
Rainsville, Ala., home, one of a reported 304 structures
destroyed by an EF-4 tornado which struck the small
town Wednesday, April 27. A local relief effort, Bags
for Bama, is collecting supplies to help those affected
by the storm.


Buckeye's Chairman and
Chief Executive Officer John
Crowe said, "The overall
capacity of the mill would
remain at its current 465,000
ton per year level, but the mix of
high-end specialty production
would increase.
In addition to the mix
improvements, the company
plans to further enhance the
performance attributes of the


fluff pulp produced at the Foley
mill, Crowe said.
"We expect this project would
generate returns significantly
above our cost of capital. We
believe this option could provide
excellent value to our customers
and our shareholders. We intend
to complete our evaluation and
make a final decision on the
potential expansion in August,"
Crowe said.


K-9 deployed to



capture suspect


Perry Police Department
(PPD) K-9 Rocko was
instrumental in tracking--and
capturing--a suspect who tried
to break into a local medical
center complex during the early
morning hours of Friday, April
29.
Ptl. Ricky Dice was first
dispatched to Premier Medical
Center off Ash Street around 1
a.m. in reference to a suspicious
person.
While enroute, he was
informed that the suspect was a
white male wearing dark clothes
and a hoodie.
Upon his arrival, Dice found
that the glass on a side door
of the center had been broken.
However, both locks on the
door were still engaged and it
did not appear that anyone had
gained entry into the building.
Pit. Kyle Johnson and K-9
Rocko were also called to
the scene; according to the
report, Rocko was able to
track the suspect to a wooded
area between the complex and
Jeffterson Street.
The K-9 alerted to an area
in the woods and the suspect,
Rex ButKee 38, was ordered to
come out of hiding.
When he emerged from
the woods, Buzbee refused to


K-9 Ptl. Kyle Johnson
and Rocko
show his hands. After several
commands to no avail, K-9
Rockco was deployed, Dice
reported.
Buzbee was then removed
from the wooded area and
placed in hand restraints. At
the time of his arrest, he was
wearing a dark blue jumpsuit. a
black ski mask and socks on his
hands.
When asked about incident.
Buzbee said he didn't know

Hospital posts net gain of $243,000


March was the best months
of the fiscal year so far for
Doctors' Memorial Hospital.
which boasted a net gain of
$243,000 for the month.
Year to date on the fiscal year
which began June 1, the hospital
was in the black $338,000, more
than $185,000 ahead of where it
had budgeted to be at that point


in the year.
DMH CEO Richard Huth
presented the latest numbers to
the Taylor County Commission
Monday e\ning. Net revenue
was $493,000 above the
budget, which Huth credited
to increased volume due to the
physicians hired last fall as
well as strong census numbers


at the hospital and the new
radiological equipment.
He acknowledged the hospital
is entering its typically slower
summer month,. with April's
preliminary numbers down
from March. He added that
the hospital has a cash reserve
of .5100)).(i1)0 in preparation for
summer.


Huth also announced a
general surgeon is expected to
join the staff in June, coming
from the Houston, Texas, area.
DMH saw 72 surgical
procedures in March, the
highest monthly total in the past
three years.
According to Huth, the
hospital also sees around


1,200 visits a month in the
emergency room. Meanwhile,
March was one of the hospital's
most active months to date in
its radiological department,
with 162 mammograms, 433
CT scans, 62 MRIs and 245
ultrasounds, the last being the
highest number ever in a single
month.


New regulations for street addresses
The City of Perry has passed an ordinance requiring and regulating the display of
addresses at both residential and business properties. In areas where curbside mail
delivery is available, address numbers must be displayed near the street, clearly
visible from all traffic flow directions. Curbside numbers must be a minimum of two
inches tall, have a contrasting color background, be a minimum of three feet above
the street grade and be either reflective or fully lit from sundown to sunrise. Numbers
must be displayed near the curb on the street of the address. In areas where curbside
mail delivery is not available, address numbers must be displayed in close proximity
to a main entrance that faces the street of the address and be clearly visible from
the street at a wide angle. If a structure's front door is more than 50 feet from
the street, then address numbers must be displayed in close proximity to a main
entrance. In passing the ordinance, council member expressed hope that the display
of address numbers would assist response to emergency calls such as police, fire or
medical instances.


The late Andrew Wood was
spotlighted as an officer who
"exemplified who we are and
what we do as a department"
by the Florida Department
of Corrections (DOC) during
its observance of national
Correctional Employees' Week.
Wood, who was an officer at
Taylor Correctional Institution
for more than 13 years, died
April 20.
"He was a people person
who inmates saw as a mentor,
a man who by being a positive
role model and counselor to
inmates, practiced positive re-

entry initiatives long before
the word re-entry came along,"
DOC officials said.
"Before c.liing to TCI,
he owned his own business,
worked at the local paper mill
and also served Taylor County
and his community as a county
commissioner for eight years.
"His assigned post was
internal security at TCI Annex
and those who knew him said
you could always be sure he was
on the compound rain or shine,
freezing or sweltering, assisting
staff and running the inmate
canteen and barbershop."
"Florida's correctional
employees in prisons and in
our communities work bravely
and tirelessly in hazardous
conditions for the benefit of
the citizens of Florida," DOC
Secretary Edwin Buss said.
"I cannot fully express how
proud I am of the department's
approximately 30,000
employees who do so much
for their communities and
for our great state. For these
reasons I urge all Floridians

Third quarter sales up 25% for Buckeye


Buckeye Technologies Inc.
announced last week that it
had third quarter net income of
$28.7 million on record sales of
$237.8 million.
Third quarter earnings
included after-tax costs relating
to restructuring and accrued
interest associated with the
cellulosic biofuel credit totaling
$0.3 million. This compared
to net income of $19.3 million
in the prior year comparable


period, which included net
income of $8.3 million from
alternative fuel mixture credits
and energy investment tax
credits, net of after-tax costs
relating to restructuring and
early retirement of debt.
Net sales were a record $237.8
million for the third quarter of
fiscal 2011, up 25 percent versus
net sales of $190.7 million in
the third quarter of fiscal 2010
due to higher selling prices and


improved mix.
Excluding special items,
adjusted net income was
$29.0 million versus third
quarter fiscal 2010 adjusted
net income of $11.0 million.
The increase compared to the
prior year period, was largely
driven by higher selling prices
overall in the specialty fibers
segment and somewhat better
capacity utilization at Buckeye's
Memphis specialty cotton fibers


plant due to some improvement
in the availability of cotton
linters.
Comparing the third quarter
to the second quarter of FY I ,
sales were up $28.3 million or
14 percent credited to higher
selling prices and increased
shipment volumes.
Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer John B.
Crowe said, "We were very
pleased with our record third


quarter financial results. Both
sales revenue and earnings
showed strong improvement
compared both to the same
quarter a year ago and to the
immediately preceding quarter.
During the quarter, strong cash
flow generation allowed us
to reduce our long-term debt
by another $27.5 million to
$136.6 million. We continue
to be encouraged about our
outlook and ability to further


increase shareholder value.
We are focused on generating
returns above our cost of capital
and continuing our balanced
approach to the allocation of
capital."
Buckeye's Board of Directors
declared a regular quarterly cash
dividend in the amount of $0.05
per common share payable
on June 15 to shareholders of
record as of the close of business
on May 16.

the scene.
Buzbee was placed under

Bembry announces passage of

'pro-senior' legislation by House

of Representatives on April 29


A bill related to continuing care retirement
communities (CCRCs) sponsored by Rep.
Leonard Bembry (D-Greenville) passed the
Florida House of Representatives by a vote of
114-0 on Friday.
This legislation will provide Florida's seniors
with additional options for care at-home and
create new, much-needed jobs for more Floridians,
Bembrv said.
"I am extremely pleased to sponsor this pro-
senior legislation which gives more opportunity
and flexibility in their lives. If this legislation had
been in place before my mom entered a nursing
home, we could have taken care of her longer at
home. Many nights we worried about her well-
being. while she was still at home. A continuing
care at-home contract would ha.ve provided the
care and security that the family needed during


those difficult times."
The pro-senior bill will allow seniors
the opportunity to contract for continuing
care retirement center services while still
remaining in their home.
Due to the slow economy, seniors are not
able to sell their homes at a reasonable value to
support their lifestyle in the future. Some seniors
may want to live in their homes longer and this
legislation will allow them to do so by providing
supportive services, Bembry noted.
He added that continuing care at-home
(CCAH) will allow seniors that reside outside the
community future access to shelter, nursing care
or personal services at the CCRC until they sell
their home or decide to move.
The Senate will be taking up the bill this week
and send it to Gov. Rick Scott for his signature.


'Bags for Bama'


collection drive


underway here


DONATION DRIVE
Continued from page 1
behind.
The tornado is thought to
have had winds in excess of 175
mph, measuring 50 yards across
as it left a path of destruction 33
miles long.
While Gunter was fortunate
none of her family and friends
were among those who lost their
lives, she is eager to do what
she can to help those trying to
recover.
"I can't run a chainsaw, but I
can organize a food drive," she
said.
And that's exactly what she
has done.
Bags for Bama is the relief
effort Gunter has organized for
those affected in Rainsville, and
is seeking donations of non-
perishable food, bottled water,
batteries, hygiene products and
baby supplies.
Drop-off locations can be
found at Buckeye Community
Federal Credit Union, K-Mart,
the Taylor County Health
Department, Boys and Girls
Club, 4-H County Extension
Office and Taylor Gymnastics.
Gunter said she plans to
drive the supplies to Rainsville
herself to cut down on shipping
costs and hopes to make her first
trip next weekend, depending
on how quickly they receive
supplies.
"The need is so great," she


said.
Gunter said
spoken with her
Ashley Dockens,


she has
best friend,
who lives


in Birmingham, but was in
Rainsville visiting family when
the tornado struck.
"It was sad to hear it in her
voice, the devastation is so bad,"
Gunter said.
Dockens' father, Calvin
Thomas, had gone to their
church for ice. As he was
about to leave, several women
arrived, who were scared by the
rising winds and wanted to take
sanctuary in the church.
They first took shelter in the
fellowship hall, but then moved
to a smaller room in the church.
Moments later, the tornado
struck, leveling much of the
church but they, along with
the room they were in, were
spared.
They exited the church to
discover their town was forever
changed.
"The police arrived and asked
Mr. Thomas to identify three
bodies they had found nearby,"
Gunter said.
A week later, most of the
residents are still without power
and many are homeless.
"Several churches have set up
food banks, but their supplies
are being depleted," Gunter
said.
In addition to supplies, Bags
for Bama is also accepting
monetary donations and Gunter
asks that checks be made to the
Salvation Army.
If your business, community
service organization, or church
would like to be a drop-off site,
contact Gunter at 584-5633
or email at fsualumna2004@

4t t& 9vdeb of jaqfio Cewuntdf fiftA S cfw4


By DEBORAH SHEFFIELD
Shady Grove correspondent
To the Girls of TCHS
Girls, have you heard the country song by Brad Paisley, "Letter
to Me," about a man writing a letter to the boy he was at 17? Well,
this is a letter to you who are like the me I was at 15, 16 and 17
too.
As a teen (back in the 1980's),
we counted calories like crazy and
mostly starved ourselves while we
wore lace in our hair like
Madonna, liked TransAm cars,
and loved boys--I spenl the lunch
money I was given each week on
gas for my little 5-speed Vega,
forgetting lunch (except for those
few fi'ies I nibbled from my best
friend's tray). Being pretty, so that
I could hold onto Harry, was my
number one priority--not the
school experiences, grades and Deborah Sheffie
learning, my friends, nor my future--all of which should have been
instead. I tried some silly and unhealthy methods of staying thin
in high school...many of you probably know girls who tried all that
I did...maybe even you?
You see, as a freshman, I was overweight and frumpy, then later
alternately bulimic and anorexic-- addicted to Dexitrim too as the
years went on. As a teenage girl, never did I think of taking care
of myself and my body as being a healthy good thing which would
make me feel better and improve my life...l only wanted to be


lId


pretty and attractive! I was ignorant of the mind-body comlicclicti ,
and how one affects the other. Wow!--was I ever shallow bh,;k 1,
believe there was no life past Charleston High School...past
Harry...past how I felt right then in those moments.
At 15 and 16, I obsessively worried about being skinny to hangl'
onto a boy...at 17, I realized what that obsession cost nce in my
high school career, but Ihe realization
came too late for a 4.0 grade p)oin
average. Here is my little Senior
High School poem (not so good, but
you get the message that I wish I had
done things differently--even then)...
e Just One More Year
Give me one more year, dear Lord,
I pray, for I don't wish to see
graduation day.
Hide it Lord, don't let it come; I
can't believe our Senior year is done.
Send us back to our Junior year. oh
, then and now God; Make us realize how little time
we have got.
Help us do the very best we can... oh to be Juniors one more time
again.
We would show more pride in CHS: Just one more year and we
would do our best!
But, one more year there cannot be, I guess it's really over for the
Seniors and me.

1,145 victims of sexual assault i Taylor County


Nationwide, April was observed as Sexual Assault Awareness
Month but the Refuge House wants to remind everyone that the
violence doesn't take a break when April ends.
"We want the public to know the reality of sexual assault.
Sexual assault occurs when you experience anything froml rape to
an fIorm of unwanted sexual touching without your full consent.
"Sexual assault occurs at every socio-economic level, across
ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions, and at all levels of
education, to males and females. It is not isolated to 1a particular
group, but permeates every group within our community,"
explained Debra McGrew who directs the local shelter.
She estimates that Taylor County has roughly 1,145 victims of

TCHS GIRLS
Continued from page 4
That Senior year, I dreamed
of going to the Art Institute of
Atlanta. but that was
unrealistic...so, I just
mindlessly let life take me
where it would rather than
learning, preparing, planning
and then DECIDING FOR
MYSELF where I would go. 1
didn't know there were Pell
Grants that would help me go
to school, even if 1 didn't have
lots of money to go to the
university...1 didn't realize that
high school English and
science classes were
foundations I would need to
help me later in college and in
life after that. Unaware that
volunteering could be a
learning experience that would
also help me with my college
entrance or even a part-time job
after high school. I didn't learn
the rewards of volunteering
until 10 years later! And, like
the song says, in high school, I
couldn't "see past Friday night"
nor past merely being my
Harry's cute girlfriend.
At that time, I believed that
taking care of me was selfish,
so I focused on what everyone
else felt, what everyone did,
and what everyone else thought
of me.
I'm here to tell you this
girls...it is NEVER too late. If
you are a Senior--there is still
time to decide to create your
future rather than just take
whatever falls your way.
Taylor Technical School has


information about applying for
financial aid grants that are
designed by the government to
create a more intelligent and
working society...they don't
have to be repaid, but they do
come with responsibility such
as class attendance and decent
grades. Carpooling to NFCC is
something very doable...just
connect with friends who are
also going or contact the school
and post a request for a
carpool!
For all the others girls, I
simply say...THINK and
STRIVE for that which adds
happiness to your life,
healthiness to your world, and
turn away from that which robs
you of your spirit, your energy.
your vitality for living! Sit
down in a quiet moment and
actually think about how you
might want to support yourself
and earn a living...what career
you want, and then make a
written plan of what you must
do to make that your reality.
Planning what you hope for in
two. five and even 10 years
from now sets the guideline for


you to work with...plan ltowar>v
and not waste so itmuchI of youil
youth.
Finally, I have IeamlItd

Horse Liniment
Erases Pain
HIALEAH, FL ---An ingredient of-
ten used to treat inflammation in race-
horse legs, is now back on the market
in its original doctor recommended
clinical strength formula.
According to a national survey, the
formula at one time became so popu-
lar that it rose to the top of pharmacy
sales fortopical pain relievers. But the
company marketing the product at the
time changed the formula and sales
plummeted. One of the inventors oft
the original formula has brought it
back to the market tender the trade
nameARTII ARRESTand says it can
relieve pain for millions.
ARTH ARREST works by a dual
mechanism whereby one ingredient re-
lieves pain immediately, while a sec-
ond ingredient seeks out and destroys
the pain messenger signal before it can
be sent to the brain. Considered a
medical miracle by some, the ARTH I
ARREST formula is useful in the
treatment of painful disorders ranging
from minor aches and pains to more
serious conditions such as arthritis,
bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, back-
ache and more.
ARTII ARREST is available int a
convenient roll-on applicator at phar-
macies without a prescription or call
1-80O-339-3301. Now at:

flourishing academically, are more confident and wake up eager
to go to school each day. Most importantly POGC's Bible based
curriculum and nurturing environment build on the moral and
spiritual foundation that we teach our children at home. We can't
speak highly enough about Point of Grace Christian!!!

Celebrating the 40th occasion
of naming a Lady of the Year,
members of Beta Sigma Phi
sorority gathered on Thursday
evening, April 28, to honor
women who have shaped and
enhanced this community.
"One important tradition of
our sorority has been to select
a Lady of the Year and honor
her at a special function each
spring," said President Cheryl
Gregory. "We were preparing
to select our 40th Lady of the


Year but our discussions of who
might become the next honoree
kept leading us down Memory
Lane. We found ourselves
remembering and reminiscing
about years past. At some point,
we decided it was appropriate
for us to pause, reflect and
celebrate the contributions
our these past ladies on this
landmark year."
That's exactly what happened
at Mama's Italian Restaurant
around tables covered with
linen cloths, surrounded by
women whose ages spanned the

"My granddaughter urged me

I did," she said with a laugh.
Admired for her long years of
dedicated service to the students
of Taylor County, Mrs. Norman


1980.
Gale Dickert, who recently
re-located to Madison with
husband John, was also among
the honorees for the 40th
celebration. Mrs. D)ickert
was chosen in 1990 for her
vital role in bringing the Boys
and (irls Club to Perry to this
community. "This continues to
be an important organization
for our children n today," said
Gregory.
In 1991, this honor went
to Linda lheartsfield for her


children and hurricane victims.

thle people and the community
ofl Perry. Time has passed and I
would like to say that my great
experiences still continue and
everyday I ami overwhelmed
by the kindness. I think I have
found a new slogan for Perry,
and it is this: Perry is so great
that paying it forward is a full-
time job with possible overtime.
And boy is it keeping me busy.
It really is a place to come
visit and maybe you might want
to stay.
Sincerely,
Elizabeth .1. Crews


We talked about the weather--and
lately--there has been plenty of weather
to discuss.
We talked about spring's quick exit
for summertime temperatures. Thus,
the need for new shorts and capris
came up.
So did the grandchildren. She's too
young to be a grandmother (or so
it seems) but she says she has early
Alzheimer's among her credentials.
I doubted it. She put the tea pitcher
in the cabinet next to the coffee cups,
instead of the refrigerator. I assured
her that wasn't Alzheimer's; that's
being so busy that you don't focus on
what you're doing. Sometimes I like
imagining that I'm a doctor.
We discussed chicken salad and
whether you should add grapes or green
apples. Sometimes, I like imagining
that I'm a good cook.
Then we talked about the price of
gas, the price of groceries, the price of
phone service, and how fragmented our
finances were becoming. Sometimes,
I like imagining that I'm a financial
expert.
Then she said, "We like the same ice
cream, you know."
I'm easily confused, I admit that. But
I did a quick inventory of the day's
conversation and had absolutely no
idea where the ice cream reference
came from.
Sometimes I play along, like my nearly
deaf aunt, thinking I'll get clues in the
conversation which will bring me back
to the place I should be.
I was tired that day and had no energy
for games.
So 1 said, "Okayyy," with a long lilt,
hoping she'd explain.
"Orange push-ups," she said,
authoritatively.
I nodded knowingly, while tilting my
head and wishing there was a memory
I could reach at this moment. But I had
no idea where she was going with the
ice cream reference. I like an orange
push-up, to be sure, but would I call it
my favorite?
"Your book," she said.
"Oh," I said astonished, and clearly,
it's time for me to read my book again.
"I wrote about orange push-ups?" I
asked her, and she was absolutely
confounded.
"Why yeah," she said, resisting the
urge to call me stupid. "You don't
remember?"
"Well, I didn't put the tea pitcher in
the cabinet," I countered, and we were
back on level playing ground again.
"You do remember your book," she
said, and then she asked, "Are you
making fun of me and my Alzheimer's?"
"No, I'm confused," I said, and that
was the absolute truth.
It's an embarrassing fact of life that
I don't always remember what I've
said or what I've written, and 1 remain
surprised that others do. It makes life
interesting of course, when you can
find writings you don't recall penning,
or re-visit places and it doesn't matter
that you've seen them before.
"Maybe you have Alzheimer's," she


ange push-ups



By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
said, and I resented her assessment
strongly...but there's some reason for
the accusation and perhaps I should
take it more seriously. Anyone over
50 has considered it; most of us are
fighting against it with all our might.
I gave another friend a "word search"
for her birthday and she actually sent a
finished sheet back in the mail so I could
see that she was working diligently to
keep her brain in top form. I never
meant to grade it, but I was pleased she
was on task.
As for me, I'm eating blueberries and
walking every day; the walking tends to
keep the cobwebs at bay.
Occasionally, I sleep well. In my
former life, I slept like a log.
And apparently, I liked orange push-
ups. So I pulled my book off the shelf
and decided I really liked the cover--I
remember it, of course; I just enjoyed it
again. After all, it's been six years. Am
I required to remember those 200,000
words? Many others have raced
through my brain since its publication.
I may even know a few new ones.
But, for the life of me, I couldn't recall
the reference to orange push-ups. Then
I found it, underneath the ice chests and
dusty jars of mayonnaise in the little
store: "Mr. Sikes' corer in the store
was surrounded by a u-shaped layout
of glass-topped freezers which held ice
cream delights, my favorite being an
orange sherbet push-up. Seven cents."
Surely, of all the push-ups in this
world, those in orange sherbert are my
favorites.
Suddenly, I was obliged to go find
one. As I enjoyed its creamy goodness,
the sweet, cold taste brought back
memories of the "ice cream man" of my
childhood who frequented our street in
the summer, the long but shady walks
to Mr. Sikes' store and the first time I
went to a true ice cream parlor in Ft.
Walton Beach and ordered sherbet.
"Susan, you can have Superman,
Bubblegum, Bear Tracks or 28 other
flavors of ice cream and, instead, you
picked sherbet?" my chaperone asked
of me, and I almost allowed my feelings
to be hurt. She must have sensed it.
"I just like sherbet," I said timidly,
gently kicking the counter with my
Grasshopper Keds.
She put her arm around me and said,
"Well then, you get what you want."
That had been my plan all along.
Some of the girls didn't like their
choices, and they didn't have enough
money to buy another cone. At this
place, there wasn't any ice cream for
7 cents. So they tried swapping; that
didn't go so well either. With ice cream
in the summertime, you have to go
forth and conquer before it ends up in
your flip-flops.
So I stood there, contentedly eating
my lime sherbet.
Because there are times in this life
when you go with what you know.
Other times, when you can't remember
what you know, you rely on friends.
Always, however, put the tea pitcher
back in the refrigerator.
It just keeps down the talk.

It is not

too early

to begin

planning

By DUSTIN HINKEL
Taylor County Emergency
Management Director
1 have provided a map
produced by our friends at
the National Weather Service
in Tallahassee showing the
hurricane tracks of storms
striking the Big Bend Region
between 1840 and 2010, a little
reminder from TCEM that it is
never too early to begin your
hurricane season preparations.
It's obvious that starting in
the 20th century the frequency
dramatically shut off. It should
also be obvious that we do
indeed have an active history
with the mid to late l thl century
bringing numerous hurricanes
into our region, including
a couple of stretches with a
hurricane two to three years in
a row.


Local emergency management officials are asking
residents to be ready for the June 1 start of the 2011
Hurricane Season.


We have no idea when the
"switch" for our region will
come back on, but hopefully
not any time soon. In terms of
Taylor County you can see that
the last direct impact to the
county occurred in 1842, but
the county has taken the brunt
of many of the hurricanes to
impact the region including all
of the major hurricanes.
Remember that a landfall
west of Taylor County
combined with a northeastern or
northern track equates to Taylor
County being impacted by
the strongest and most violent


portion of a hurricane, the right-
front quadrant. As you can see
our county has a history with
this destructive form of indirect
impact.
If you would like more
information on how to plan
for your family or business
please feel free to contact
the IEmergency Management
Department or visit www.
floridadisaster.org. This Web
site has many online forms
that can help you create a plan
to prepare for, respond to and
recover from a tropical storm/
hurricane threat or impact.

Dear Ediftrv :'
Parrot Heads of Perry-"disc"
would like to thank everyone
who joined them in "partying
with a purpose" at the 2011
Relay For Life.
With your support, we were
able to raise money for a
great cause and do our part to
celebrate, remember and tight
back in the battle against cancer.
We would like to extend a
special thanks to members of
the Taylor County High School
JROTC Bulldog Battalion for
their assistance in setting up our
tiki hut and set. Your courteous,
respectful and helpful attitudes
were a credit to your school and
your unit.
Sincerely,
Gina Jolley
Captain
Parrot Heads in Perry-"dise"


stage.
Also this week, the Senate
passed SB 1086. the "Healthy)
Pregnancies for Incarcerated
Women Act." The bill allows
women giving birth in a Florida
prison or county jail to not
be handcuffed or otherwise
restrained. The bill does allow
pregnant women to be physically
restrained if they're shown to
be a security risk. A woman
who believes she was held in
violation of the act can tile a


grievance within one year.
Also passing the Senate was
Senate Bill 652 which was
passed in the hopes of attracting
more spaceflight businesses to
Florida. The bill, which passed
unanimously from the Senate,
targets private spaceflight
companies specializing in
taking ordinary citizens into
space.
The Senate also passed a
number of bills dealing with
abortion funding and handguns.
