CASTELUCCI Staff writer You might not recognize Marilyn Johnson by name, but you probably recognized her smile. She has been a mainstay at Buckeye Community Federal Credit Union for the past 40 years where she seems to always be in motion--tossing out a friendly hello in the front lobby or asking about your family as she runs from department to department. Looking at her today, you wouldnt guess that just over a year ago Johnson faced the devastating news that she had breast cancer. Monday night, Johnson shared her cancer story during this years Relay For Life Survivors Banquet held at Crosspoint Baptist Church. It was life changing and you quickly learn what is importantGod, family, friendsand I am blessed to have them all, she said. My son and daughter and their families were by my side as well as my many friends. They shared the load in making sure that I was at every doctors appointment and every scheduled test. I had a special Christian friend throughout my entire ordeal who kept me lifted up, sometimes even using scriptures to show me that I was in Gods hands. Johnson underwent a mastectomy on March 9, 2012. I was fortunate enough not to need radiation or chemo. I did, however, have a total of four surgeries between March and October. I continue to be monitored, but as I passed my one-year mark just last month, I am very thankful to God that I am healthy again, she concluded. Johnson has been named honorary chair of this years Relay For Life, along with Beverly Parker. Look for their families to take the lead on the Survivors Lap which will kick off the 2013 event Friday, May 17, at the Taylor County High School track. 2013 2013City wants signs posted identifying predatorsAlthough registered sexual predators are listed on a statemaintained database, the Perry City Council is looking to make identifying them one step easier by having signs posted in their yards. Ive seen it done in other communities and Id like to see us post signs in front of homes where (registered) sexual predators live. It would affect one person in the city and that individual lives in my district, Mayor Daryll Gunter said in bringing the proposal to the council. I would also like to look at what it would take to have signs posted where registered sexual offenders live as well, he added. I think a lot more research needs to be done regarding the offender list. My suggestion would be if someone has two or more convictions, but we really need to look in to it so we know what were dealing with, Perry Police Department Capt. Jamie Cruse said. Snyders-Lance spends nearly $100,000 to tackle smellSnyders-Lance has spent nearly $100,000 in the past three weeks working to resolve an issue with its pre-treatment wastewater lagoon at its Perry facility that resulted in strong odor and raised a number of complaints from neighboring residents. Perry Plant Manager John Bradshaw addressed those concerns at last weeks meeting of the Perry City Council. He related that the company (formerly known as Toms Foods) has contracted with two different engineering rms to pursue both short-term and long-time solutions for the issue. A contributing factor, Bradshaw noted, was a change in production that put stress on the plants treatment process. Addressing aeration issues in the lagoon, discharged solids were allowed to settle, then were collected and removed from the lagoon. In 2012, more than 1,000 pounds of wet solids were removed from the lagoon at a cost of more than $300,000, Bradshaw said. We certainly appreciate your presence here in the community and want to help our businesses anyway we can. We value you as a job creator and recognize the efforts youve taken to correct this, Councilman Mike Deming said. What upsets me more is that we had to hear about it from the street and not from you directly. It got to the point we couldnt even go out to eat without someone coming up to us and complaining, Mayor Daryll Gunter said. It also appeared that you were dragging your feet on communicating with us. I realize you were out of town for a week, but communication needs to be open and much quicker, he added. In a statement released Friday, Bradshaw sought to give a more thorough explanation on the cause of the issues and the companys efforts to combat it: Snyders-Lance is currently experiencing an issue with our pretreatment waste water lagoon at our facility in Perry. We understand the concerns of the community and neighboring property owners regarding the unpleasant odor that has resulted from a biological imbalance in our pretreatment wastewater lagoon and are taking all appropriate steps to Please see page 3 Survivor Marilyn Johnson, center, credits the support of her family in seeing her through her cancer journey. Shown are: Monica McDonald, Harris Johnson, Kortney Harris, Kasey Johnson, Copelyn Johnson, Tristyn Johnson, Jordan McDonald and Baylor Johnson. Two Georgia women were seriously injured in a Sunday afternoon crash about seven miles south of Perry on U.S. 19. Lillan J. Hightower, 79, and Abbie Derrell Hightower, 80, both of Carrollton, Ga., were traveling north on U.S. 19 in a 2003 GMC Envoy about 1 p.m., according to a report led by Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Trooper James I. Parker Jr. For an unknown reason, the vehicle traveled onto the outside paved apron of U.S. 19. Lillan Hightower, the driver, then attempted to steer back onto the roadway and overcorrected to the left. The vehicle rotated a quarter of a turn clockwise and then traveled north onto the east shoulder of U.S. 19. It came to a nal rest on its roof in the wood line on the east shoulder of the highway. Both Hightowers were transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by ShandsCair and Air Methods. The FHP was assisted on the scene by Doctors Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services, Taylor County FireRescue and the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce. Women seriously injured in crash Please see page 3 Blessed with family & friends Benet planned Saturday for murder victims familyNearly four months after the tragic death of their beloved husband and father, the family of murder victim Ashley Adams continues to struggle with their loss.

A-3 Taco Times May 1, 2013 quickly rectify the situation. While this situation has resulted in an unacceptable unpleasant odor, there are no environmental, health or safety issues resulting from the biological imbalance of the lagoon, which has stemmed from an increased production level at the plant. It is important to note that the pre-treatment waste water lagoon does not receive any form of domestic or sanitary sewage from the facility. The domestic or sanitary waste generated by the plant is on a completely isolated plumbing system that by-passes the pretreatment lagoon and ows directly to the citys system. The pre-treatment lagoon is used to treat our production wastewater only; which contains water and starch from washing potatoes as well as residual oil and low amounts of food-grade cleaners. Snyders-Lance takes very seriously its commitment to the community, our neighbors, and the citizens of Perry. We have operated in Perry for 32 years and are proud to employ 108 full-time associates from Perry and the surrounding communities. We pride ourselves on having a good track record of health and safety compliance as well as environmental compliance on both company-wide and local levels. We are committed to resolving all current issues and are developing a long term solution that meets the city standards and supports the continued growth of the Perry plant. We are also continuing our current corrective actions of operating additional treatment equipment to mitigate the odor as quickly as possible. On behalf of SnydersLance and all of the associates of the Perry facility, I would like to apologize to the residents of the surrounding areas for the unpleasant odor from our pre-treatment waste water lagoon. The Perry facility and all of Snyders-Lance is dedicated to being good corporate citizens in this city and other communities across the U.S. You have our commitment that we are doing everything possible to x this issue as quickly as possible and will work hard until it is resolved. We thank you for your understanding and ask for your patience as we continue to resolve the issues at hand. I would like to see us move forward with a fulledged ordinance regarding signs identifying where registered sexual predators live, and then look also at offenders, Gunter said. Im for it, I just want to get a little more information, Councilman Mike Deming said. Councilwomen Venita Woodfaulk and Shirlie Hampton also gave their approval in moving forward with an ordinance. the Save-A-Lot parking lot this Saturday, starting at 8 a.m. All proceeds will go toward Adams funeral expenses. A fund has also be set-up at Tree Capital Credit Union to assist the family. Adams longtime friend Patrick Alexander Wilkinson has been charged with his murder and is awaiting trial.

A-4 Taco Times May 1, 2013 Living Beekeeping: Thats so Daniel! Spring musical Sunday at 1st BaptistThe childrens choir of First Baptist Church will present a spring musical entitled, Thats So Daniel, on Sunday evening, May 5, at 6 p.m. Written in the style of the movie, The Princess Bride, this humorous and thought-provoking musical showcases a grandfather telling the story of the biblical Daniel to a modern-day boy named Daniel. The biblical story is modernized and spiced up a bit in this account, said Joy Wurgler who is assisting with the production. Liberties are taken with the characters, but the events are true to scripture. The message of the musical will challenge students to make wise choices and take a stand for whats right. The production is under the direction of Laurie Wynn. We would like to invite the community to attend and enjoy this humorous musical about making wise choices. It is free and open to the public, Wynn added. Musicians include: (back row) Leah Smyrnios, Trista Knowles, Ben Wurgler, Jessica Knowles, Zach Bembry, Fletcher Schwab, Kinsey Goodman and Josh Wurgler; middle row, Simon Jackson, Ella Goodman, Garrison Guenthner, Jaret Fuller, Denton Wiggins and Matthew Bembry; bottom row, Kate Sullivan, Kaden Guenthner, Morgan Lundy, Christian Goodman, Claire Parker and Kaden Campbell. a family tradition passed from one generation to another? When Chuck Edwards moved from the atlands of Perry to the mountains of North Georgia three years ago, he took his love of beekeeping with him. Now he and his wife, Greta, welcome their visiting grandchildren, hoping to pass along this rewarding hobby. Edwards penned his thoughts for the May edition of the American Bee Journal. While our grandsons were visiting with us, they had many questions about the bees, the honey and all the facets of the bees life--from the eggs laid all the way to the sale of our honey. Coby (Brannen, the son of Oby and Wendi Edwards Brannen) was my right-hand man, and fortunately he was here when the sourwood honey was ready for harvest. Although our apiary is quite small compared to what we had in Florida, Coby was a big-time help extracting honey and learning a lot about the business. He knows its hard work, the money isnt all that great (compared to some) but there are so many other rewards to understanding why God put the honeybee on this earth and how we take care of them. Edwards mantains that beekeeping is becoming a lost art, mainly because it involves hard work and not so much monetary rewards, but is so valuable to our food chain. He also wanted to spotlight his belief that Taylor County boys are top-notch. Coby Brannen of Perry is pictured helping his grandfather remove honey supers after the picture and article was featured recently in American Bee Journal.

A-10 Taco Times May 1, 2013 Submitted by MORRIS STEEN Robert McFail Hendry, for whom the Robert M. Hendry Memorial Methodist Church is named, immigrated to Florida with his wife, Martha Ann Carlton Hendry and their family, from Georgia between 1850 and 1853 and settled in the Shady Grove area, approximately one-half mile north of the current Church. Robert McFail Hendry was ordained an elder in the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1867. He was the grandson of John Hendry of the Island of Arran located between Scotland and Ireland. Johns son Robert, Robert McFails father, came to America in 1770 with his two brothers. He served with Harry Light Horse Lee and fought against the British Crown in the Revolutionary War. The Hendry Family, one of the families of the MacNaughton Clan, was originally from Moray County Scotland. Legend has it that during 12th and 13th century conicts, the clan lost a signicant portion of its land holdings in Scotland with many of its members scattering to various locations. Many of the Hendrys, in particular, settled on the island of Arran. Robert M. Hendry and Martha Ann Carlton Hendry had 12 children. Each year on a rotating basis, the descendants of one of the 12 children serve as host for the Hendry Family Reunion. The Auley Hendry family is hosting the reunion this year. The property where the Robert M. Hendry Memorial Methodist Church is located was donated by the Hendry family for the purpose of erecting a church. Robert M. Hendry served the north Florida community as a circuit rider for the Methodist Church in addition to his regular occupation as a farmer. The church was established in 1872 and was eventually named in his honor. We celebrate the churchs 141th anniversary this year. Generations of descendants of Robert M. and Martha Ann Carlton Hendry have scattered to the four winds. Several followed in his footsteps and became ministers and farmers. Others entered law enforcement, politics, education, business, military, medicine and other occupations. The reputation of the Hendrys was that of hardworking, God-fearing, and honest, law-abiding citizens. It remains so today. The rst Sunday in May 2013, marks the 146th anniversary of Hendry Family Reunions in Shady Grove. The service will began this coming Sunday at 11 a.m. followed by dinner on the grounds. All friends and members of the Hendry Family and their descendants are cordially invited to attend. Hendry family will hold 146th reunion Sunday in Shady Grove
