Sadler was released from Shands Hospital in Gainesville last Tuesday night and traveled to Thomasville, Ga., for a consultation with doctor who invented the antivenom used in her treatment.

Morris Steen read the names of Taylor Countys war dead with a voice and bearing that gave testament to every year of his command and military service. With the last name still ringing in the air, he turned to face the black granite monument where the names are carved in stone and executed a salute. This is your day, he said. It was. Clear blue skies overhead welcomed visitors who gathered at Veterans Memorial Park Monday morning to honor the memory of Perrys soldiers who were killed in action and to give to thanks to the men and women who have fought in freedoms name.

He is a command pilot with more than 3,550 ying hours as a ight examiner and instructor in both the C-130E and Initial Cadre C-17A.

Although Tuesday was the last day of operation for the Shady Grove Post Ofce, local post ofce box patrons will soon have a new location for picking up their mail: Rockys. According to Sam Bolen with the U.S. Post Ofce, the convenience store will become a village post ofce, housing post ofce boxes and offering basic services like stamps and at-rate shipping. The post ofce boxes will be located inside the store around mid-June, but patrons will need to utilize the Greenville Post Ofce until then, Bolen said. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have in the meantime, he added. Rockys owner Joe Mattingly conrmed Thursday that his store would be the new home of the post ofce boxes. There are approximately 80 post ofce box patrons who utilize the Shady Grove Post Ofce. Bolen said the Postal Service was unable to renegotiate the lease for the previous building. Shady Grove resident Auley Rowell, who rented the former post ofce building to the Postal Service, said Thursday that he was notied by a Postal Service ofcial that morning that they would not be renewing their lease, which expires Friday, May 31, and would be vacating the building Tuesday, May 28. The Postal Service held a public meeting Feb. 11 to discuss the future of the Shady Grove Post Ofce. After that meeting, ofcials announced that the post ofce would remain open, but only for two hours per day, from 9-11 a.m. Farmers Market opens Saturday, June 8 The Perry Downtown Farmers Market presented by Main Street Perry will ofcially open for business on Saturday, June 8, at 8 a.m. in the new Grand Pavilion at Rosehead Park. The City of Perry completed construction on the multi-use pavilion earlier this year and the farmers market will be managed by Main Street Perry. We are thrilled to have worked with the City of Perry to make this happen, said David S. Sullivan, president of the Main Street Perry Board of Directors. Were going to be able to make use of this space in so many ways, said Main Street Market Manager Tracey Smith.

Deputy Chief of Staff Plans and Programs at Headquarters Air Force, Pentagon, Physical Asset Protection Branch Chief, Force Structure, Resources and Assessments Directorate Joint Staff, Pentagon, Shefeld said. Carter is married to the former Cathy Sauls and they have two children, John and Katie. Taking the podium, Carter said, Each Memorial Day we gather to remember those who gave their lives to protect our way of life, and we are forever grateful to their families that we might be free. Throughout the history of the United States brave men and women have fought and paid the price to maintain our God given rights of liberty and freedom. They paid this price in full with their own blood. Not only have they fought for our nation, but they have fought to help free people and ensure liberty and freedom around the world. Today we must also remember those who are still missing. We honor them, and our nation is determined to account for all of them. The other day my wife Cathy and I spent some time here at this Veterans Memorial Park. I commend those who had the vision to put a veterans park here in Perry. It is a place of valor, and its absolutely beautiful. The reason this park means so much to so many of us is because it is a symbol of a strong and proud community, and it is our way of acknowledging our responsibility as Americans to preserve the memory of our fallen. As so many Americans have done in the past, the names on these walls answered a call, a call to serve and a call to sacrice. The names on these walls are a testimony to the courage of many generations of men and women of Taylor County. During World War II the names on these walls fought across two oceans at the same time. I remember reading that the Japanese said the island of Iwo Jima will never be taken, but after U.S. Navy bombardments the Marines landed and raised a ag in three days. In Germany they said our bombers would never get through the anti-aircraft re, but we did and destroyed the German infrastructure bringing the Third Reich to their knees. They were victorious because we are Americans. During the Korean and Vietnam wars the names on these walls fought against the spread of communism, ghting for human dignity, and ensuring freedom and liberty for the people of South Korea and South Vietnam. They were victorious because we are Americans. During the Gulf War the names on these walls fought with superior airpower and repower, the likes of which have never been seen before, and they came home victorious because we are Americans. Today we continue to ght a global war on terror. But, for the rst time in 10 years, Americans are not ghting and dying in Iraq. We are working to end the war in Afghanistan, and our troops are coming home. Like those before them, they are coming home victorious because we are Americans. Yes, the names on these walls bravely faced an enemy, and went to meet them head on. We have freedom and liberty because of their courage and sacrice. We are forever grateful. In closing, there is little I can say to add to the silent testimony of this place of valor, yet we must do our best to honor them. Not just for them, but for ourselves and our future generations. Why? Because the United States and the freedom for which it stands, the freedom for which they died, must face any enemy, and stand as one nation under god forever. The only way to do this is to never forget the sacrices of the names on these walls. This is a place of valor. It stands as a reminder to us and future generations. During my last assignment one of my Army colleagues who was a battalion commander in Iraq kept a letter in his desk. It was a letter from a soldier in his unit. I learned that this soldier was killed by a roadside bomb. One day my colleague shared the letter with me. I will never forget the last sentence. It read, This is a war we must win. Our deaths will mean nothing if we stop now. I will glady sacrice my life for liberty and freedom. Today our nation is free because of brave Americans like this, and we must continue defeating our enemies one by one for the cause of liberty and freedom, and by laying the foundation of peace for future generations. Today we remember the names on these walls, those who gave their lives to protect our way of life, and we are forever indebted to their families that we might be free, Carter concluded. The program also included the presentation of colors by the Taylor County High School JROTC, a ag-changing ceremony and a performance of Taps by (Ret.) Major James Taylor. The ag lowered honored the late MSGT Charles Sessions; the ag raised honors the late SSGT Charles Gandy Sr. A-3 Taco Times May 29, 2013 AMERICANS Continued from page 1 Carter: Veterans Park a place of valor

Twenty-ve members of the Taylor Gymnastics girls team traveled to Tampa April 27-28 to compete in the 2013 AAU State Championships. More than 1,600 competitors from across the state converged to compete for the championship titles. A combined 40 gold, silver and bronze medals were brought home by the team, said Coach Lisa Arrowood. It is very rewarding to see their hard work pay off on the podium. We are very pleased with our athletes performances during this state meet and we are looking forward to the 2013 national competition in Orlando at the end of June, she added. Level 2 Coach Mikki Whiddon said, I am delighted with all my girlsthey did a wonderful job and every one of them performed well. Emma Grace Ducksworth took top honors on the balance beam for her age group with a 9.20. Anna Ellison took the silver medal on vault, beam and the all-around. Bronze medalists include Emily Vann on vault and beam as well as Felicity Emory on oor and Reagan Jones on uneven bars. Second year gymnast Alana Demps competed in the Elite A division which was comprised of the highest scoring Level 2 gymnasts from across the state. She scored a whopping 37.175 in the all-around and nished fth. We were extremely proud of her. Other Level 2 team members include Colbi Bodiford and Kylee Padgett who both scored over a 35.00 in the all-around and received their Elite pins. Of our eight team members, only two competed last year so you can imagine our joy when the team took 5th place out of 11 teams, Whiddon said. Level 3 athlete Elisabeth Cook took home top honors by capturing the gold medal in the all-around, uneven bars and balance beam for her age group. Cook also received her Elite pin for her AA score of 36.325. Faith Shiver took the silver medal on the uneven bars with a score of 9.55 while Emily Johnson took bronze on the same event with a 9.275. Johnson had the highest all-around score of our team members with an astonishing 36.90 and received her Elite pin. Other team members include Savannah Parker, Emma Gray and Emma Shiver. The Shiver twins both competed in the Elite A group for Level 3 and received their Elite pins. The Level 3 team nished sixth amid a eld of erce competitors. We have a talented group of Level 3 gymnasts. These girls are a pleasure to coach. They are all dedicated, hard working and have such positive attitudes, Coach Brooke Rose said. Level 4 team members Katy Mathis, Paityn Wilson and Riley Mathis also had a great meet. Katy took the bronze medal on balance beam; Paityn bronze on the uneven bars and Riley silver on balance beam and bronze on the uneven bars. Wilson earned her Elite pin with a 35.075 all-around score. They are progressing at a steadfast pace and we look forward to great things from them, Coach Mike Romano said. First year competitor and Taylor Gymnastics only Level 5 athlete, Kiki Schubert, nished third in the all-around, second on the uneven bars and earned her Elite pin. Our modied optional gymnast Brielle Lynch took the gold medal and state title on the uneven bars. These girls are very talented and will be phenomenal upper level athletes in the near future, said Romano. Level 7 team member Ayonna Carter captured the state title on uneven bars, bronze medals on vault and beam, and the silver medal in the all-around with a score of 36.475. Ceven Kidd took silver medals on vault and bars, and the bronze medal in the all-around while Kinzi Mattingly took the silver medal on vault and bronze on oor. Team member Mickaela Whiddon was unable to compete due to an injury. The Level 7 team took second place. With every score counting, it is a testament to just how talented these girls are. All girls earned their Elite pins, Arrowood said. Level 8 gymnast Malayshia White was the all-around champion for the Elite A division which earned her an individual trophy. White also took second on uneven bars and third on oor. Jenny Jackson took the state title and gold medal on vault, bronze on bars and in the all-around. Both girls earned their Elite pins. Level 9 gymnast Alexis Burkett took the silver on all events as well as the allaround. Following the competition, Burkett was recognized with four other high school seniors in a ceremony to celebrate this special milestone in their lives. She received a $1,000 Eddie Wortman scholarship to help with college expenses. Eddie Wortman was a leader in the gymnastics community and lost his battle with cancer back in 2009. His family and friends keep his love of the sport alive through this annual scholarship to recognize the tremendous commitment these athletes possess. In the sport of gymnastics, only the most talented, dedicated and determined athletes remain through their senior year. We are so very proud and excited to have our very rst graduating competitive gymnast, said Arrowood. Alexis started gymnastics as an energetic four-year-old in our gym. It was obvious even at that age that she had a natural Godgiven talent for gymnastics. Ill never forget her rst year competing as a Level 2 when right in the middle of her beam routine she stopped, scanned the crowd to nd her parents and grandparents and gave them a big smile and wave. We have spent many years working to focus her talent and energy! She has been diligent and worked very hard to become a Level 9 gymnast. Alexis has coached younger students in our gym over the years and also volunteered as a gymnastics coach for Special Olympics. She is an inspiration to many young people and I am so excited for her to begin this new chapter in her life. I look forward to watching her mature and nd her way in life. I know that God gave her an abundance of energy and talent to accomplish anything she sets her mind to, Arrowood added. Never in my coaching life have I seen a kid learn so much in such a short period of time. Moving through Level 7, 8 to 9 in mere months speaks for itself. She has been an absolute pleasure to coach. Her desire to excel has been second to none. Hopefully she will spend another year at Taylor Gymnastics while she attends North Florida Community College. If she continues progressing as quickly as she has over this past season, college gymnastics could be in her future. Alexis is a very talented athlete and I would love to see her receive a scholarship to help her with her college education, said Romano. Taylor Gymnastics is now preparing for its end-of-the-year exhibitions. We invite the public to see for themselves the amazing talent these kids have! Team gymnasts work out Monday through Friday, 3-7 p.m. We will have a variety of performances the rst week in June, but our optional gymnasts will perform June 6, 6:30-7:30 p.m. The public is invited to come and admission is free.
