After the

planes,

relief from

mosquitoes
Many Taylor County
residents are reporting
a significant drop in the
number of mosquitoes here
after county contractors
conducted aerial spraying
over 129,000 acres through
the weekend.
"Obviously, there were
areas where the spraying
was more effective than
others, but overall, this was
an effective operation,"
Assistant County
Administrator Dustin
Hinkel said.
The spraying began
Friday night, with the
planes covering 75 percent
of the contracted area. They
were "rained out" Saturday
night so the operation was
completed Sunday night.
"We're still running
mosquito control trucks
seven days a week to keep
that knocked down," Hinkel
said.
"Hopefully the aerial
spraying will give us the
leg up for our traditional
tactics."
The county contracted
with Vector Disease Control
International (VDCI) based
in Little Rock, Ark., to
conduct aerial spraying,
which was done in nine
zones encompassing most
of the populated areas of
the county, including the
City of Perry, Eridu/Shady
Grove, Lake Bird, Aucilla

new vision


Designers utilized input gathered from six public "listening sessions" to
produce a conceptual plan for the revitalization of downtown Perry. The
Perry City Council will meet to review the final plan at its July 24 meeting.

Courthouse park, community

pond featured in master plan


From the time the first
brick was laid for the boxy
white structure which
replaced the stately domed
showcase that was the
historic heart of downtown,
the Taylor County
Courthouse has been a
source of contention for
many residents.'
During a series of open
forums held to facilitate
the design of a conceptual
renewal plan for downtown,


volunteers heard the same
complaint time and again-
what can be done about the
courthouse?
"We even had suggestions
to tear it down and build a
new one," Bob Sheffield
told the Perry City Council
last week. "But we finally
realized, if we can't tear it
down, camouflage it."
That is just what designers
did, offering a master plan
-that calls .for replacing


the parking lot behind the
courthouse with a new park
complete with a fountain,
shade trees and band shell.
Additional landscaping
around the courthouse
would echo the park's look
with canopy sidewalks,
benches facing inward
instead of out to the street
and the return to angle
parking on south side Main

i& Midweek Muddle


Wha

need


The inkling sounds of Brahms
Melody emerged from the rotating
light streams of the music box as I
stared through the slats in my crib.
I was quite young.
Several years later, I was "a little
teapot, short and stout."
Baptist hymns carried me
to church on. Sunday and
Wednesday, reminding me that
"Jesus Loves the little children, all
the children of the world."
The Beatles landed on the scene
and "The Ed Sullivan Show" would
never be the same again. Neither
would the world. Neither would I.
Elvis Presley beckoned me to the
Ritz Theatre every Saturday, to
watch him croon and gyrate.
The Beach Boys made me turn
the volume up louder (and they
still do), followed by anything
performed by Chicago and most
things by Van Morrison. Then
along came disco and the Bee Gees'
Night Music which makes any night
memorable.
But somewhere in this mix, when
Elvis was experimenting with
drugs, a man named Burt Bacharach
collaborated with lyricist Hal David
to produce a plethora of songs
Which--even now--walk me ever so
slowly back to a time gone by.
And if I'm not careful, I will cry.
During my younger years, when
Diana Ross sang, "A House Is Not
a Home," (Bacharach/David) I just
thought it was a pretty song. Now
I think it is gut-wrenchingly
hurtful, poignant, beautiful yet
painfully specific and grievous
piece of music, and I have to run
for cover.
Music, you know, reaches you at
different levels given the season of
your life. Since I'm old and know
it, I fear that a large number of you
don't know who Burt Bacharach is,
and it grieves me so. We must do
lunch.
When Bacharach recently
received the Library of Congress
Gershwin Prize on behalf of
the legendary song-writing
partnership he enjoyed with David,
it was Sheryl Crow who sang his,
"Walk On By," for the audience who
gathered, including the President
and First Lady.
Through a stage provided by
television, I was there too. But
through the music provided by
Bacharach, I was really there--back
in the throes of teenage love and
loss, remembering "the tears and
the sadness you gave me when
you said goodbye," and especially
favoring the line, "let me grieve in
private...just walk on by."
Dionne Warwick might have
considered it her signature song,
but it was mine, too.
In my mind, there's a beautiful
black and white portrait of
Bacharach at the piano keyboard--
it was probably an album cover, or
a promotional picture for "Butch
Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"
or some other movie for which
he created the soundtrack. He
was, and is, a handsome man


t the world

Is now
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
whose life played out on the piano
ivories, further enhanced by full
accompaniment from an orchestra,
with jazzy strings and moody,
indigo blue lights. Does your life
sound that way?
Michael Feinstein said, "Your
music has brought us all closer
together, Burt, and close to
you." On cue, the orchestra
launched, the song "Close to You"
and Karen Carpenter's pure vocals
were vividly remembered. "Why do
stars fall down from the sky, every
time you walk by?"
Why,'of course, they want, to be
close to you. Burt knew the answers
and he found his way through a lot
of the questions, too.
"What's it all about?" he asks
in "Alfie," and his excellent piano
work reaches a crescendo. "As
sure as I believe, there's a heaven
above, Alfie. I know there's
something more...something even
non-believers can believe in."
"Do you know the San Jose?" Burt
did.
Do you know "What the World
Needs Now"? Burt did: love, love,
love.
Can you vow, "I'll Never Fall In
Love Again"?
Do you know how to "Make It
Easy On Yourself"?
Have you seen "The Look of
Love"?
Or known "Anyone Who Had A
Heart"?
Few football careers catapult
a player to a piano keyboard,
but it happened that way for
Bacharach. His collaborator's
career as a journalist put David
right beside him in 1957. Now
.55 years after their first song, the
nation still admires their music.
The star-studded tribute
featured other geniuses, to
emphasize that Bacharach/David
music isn't limited to one genre,
or one generation. Stevie Wonder
was in extraordinary form, as was
Lyle Lovett, of all people; classical
trumpeter Arturo Sandoval
performed, as did Shelea; Canada's
premier jazz artist, Dianna Krall,
presented her sultry vocals while
Mike Myers confessed his father's
undying love for Bacharach's
music, and his own personal desire
to extend its influence into the
current day (hence, the sounds of
"Austin Powers" films).
I was comforted and relieved to
be found by Burt Bacharach's
music again. Years had separated
me from the, lyrics which chart a
map through my life.
On that evening, however, I
resolved never to apologize for my
musical tastes, no matter how old
or limited. Thanks to the Library
of Congress, they are now time-
honored.
You can have your Lady Gaga, but
I will remain ga-ga about composer
Burt Bacharach and the brilliance
he and lyricist Hal David represent,
having written music--just for me,
while reaching the world at the
same time.

falling behind: truancy,
home schooling and virtual
education.
Dyal said the district's
overall attendance was
just above 90 percent and
if it falls below that mark,
the Florida Department
of Education steps in to
monitor the district.


As for home schooling,
Dyal said there are almost
300 home-schooled students
in the county.
"About 100 parents do
well, but we have 185
students who require
monitoring, which the
district is required to do
under statute," he said.
Additionally, districts are
also required to monitor
virtual education students
to ensure "the students are


doing the work," he said.
"We're back to the point
we can financially afford it,"
Dyal told board members at
the June meeting. "I don't
think we can financially
afford not to do it."
The position was approved
in a 3-1 vote, with School
Board Member Danny
Glover voting against.

I am honored and privileged
to be able to serve as the Taylor

made great strides in becoming
financially stable these past 4
years. Our goal for the next

collaborative effort between schools and community. We have
many mandates coming down from Tallahassee that will impact
our district both instructionally and financially. With the mandate
of moving to the COMMON CORE STANDARDS, increased
instructional rigor will be required if we are to give our students
the best opportunity to be successful on all of the required
assessments.
With this opportunity of remaining Superintendent, I will make
it my number one goal to provide our students with the best
educational experience that we can provide. Again, thank you for
allowing me to serve this district.

The community pond could feature a walking path, docks for fishing and a covered Farmers Market.

Splash pad, walking trail & fish pond?


NEW VISION
Continued from page 1
Street.
"One of the things we
heard on a consistent basis
was people wanted open
civic space and more trees
downtown," designer
Charlie Johnson of Woods
& Partners Inc., said in
unveiling the plan.
"There is an open public
parking lot across the
courthouse and 'we have
identified two additional
sites for other lots. The
three spots combined would
have more parking than
the 62 spots in the current


lot directly behind the
courthouse," he said.
The plan also outlines
a community pond
encompassing the area from
Center Street to Jefferson
Street.
"We would basically
dig out a pond around this
area of Spring Creek,"
City Manager Bob Brown
said.
The new park would
include walking trails, a
performance stage and
playground. The current
Farmers Market would
be expanded to include
a shelter .for vendors and
additional parking.

Any homeowner in

Energy employees carry someone claiming to be a

But because identification closed and locked, and call
badges, vehicle sighs and Progress Energy's customer
clothing can be fabricated service center (800-700-
to look authentic, none of 8744) to verify their
these is sufficient to verify a identify.


"There is no doubt about
it-water attracts people
and I think this would be
a big draw for downtown,"
Mayor Emily Ketring said.
Councilman Daryll
Gunter said he would like to
see the plan include a splash
pad near the playground
area.
"I really think it would get
people-families-coming
back to downtown," he said.
Councilman Don Cook
said he envisioned having
the pond stocked with fish.


"I have seen this in other
communities and know how
successful they can be in
attracting people," he said.
Of the plan presented
last week, Cook said, "It
exceeds what I envisioned
by far."
Designers will return
to the council July 24 and
present the final conceptual
plan, breaking down
components into areas
that can be done "fairly
quickly and with little to no
funding," Brown said.
