Elegant hors doeuvres, community leaders and medical professionals mingling togetherit was a scene that the guest of honor would have likely avoided by slipping away when the rst opportunity presented itself. My father would have been humbled by this recognition. He would not know what to say except thank you for the honor and I just did what I was supposed to do. He would probably have gone to another room or been embarrassed, Dr. Amar Mutnal said of his father, the late Dr. Bas Mutnal who was honored by his Doctors Memorial Hospital (DMH) family in a ceremony held Friday evening, Nov. 15. My fathers motivation was to doing the right things for his patients, taking care of him as if they were part of his family. When you were with him, you had his undivided attention. Everybody was somebody to him and he took every opportunity he could to help someone. I never once saw my dad not give 110 percent to his patients or to anyone he encountered personally or professionally. When I spoke with a doctor at the Cleveland Clinic about the honor the hospital was bestowing on my father, he was just amazed. This was a man who works at one of the most prestigious hospitals in the country and yet he was amazed by the gesture a small community hospital did for an immigrant physician who came from an even smaller village in India, Mutnal said. He couldnt have been the man he was without my mother. You cant talk about him without talking about my mother (Dr. Lalitha Mutnal). She is the strongest person I know and his spirit will live on in her. I am so happy to say he was my dad. To my family, the extended family, he was the strengththe pillar. He and my mother were the rst members of their families to come to America and he took it as his duty to help his family back in India. My parents paved the way to make it a little bit easier for those who followed. He came here with $5 in his pocket and no other help. Poverty, illiteracy he overcame it all with a positive attitude and energy and that may be his greatest legacy. By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Staff writer A local family is grappling with the loss of a mother of two young children whose life was cut tragically short in a fatal car crash here late Monday evening, Nov. 18. Casey D. Bergman of Perry was pronounced dead at the scene some two miles west on U.S. Highway 98, just past Deals Oyster House. The driver of the other vehicle in the crash, William Shane Murphy, 44, also of Perry, sustained minor injuries. Bergman was 27; she would have celebrated her 28th birthday Thursday, Nov. 21. She was a ghter and a beautiful girlreally Gods blessing, Bergmans mother, Kelly Terrill of Crystal River said Tuesday. Bergman overcame many medical challenges in her life and was so proud of her two daughters. She weighed just two pounds when she was born. Then, when she was 11, she broke her neck. When she was just 12-13, they discovered a tumor on her brain stem. She died three times and was revived. They treated the tumor with radiation, but couldnt remove it. She was a tough cookie, Terrill said. Bergman was raised in Perry and was currently working at McDonalds, waiting to start vocational classes at Taylor Technical Institute. She was enrolled and ready for school. I just want her daughters (Miranda Terry, 7, and Faith Rowell, 5) to always remember her and how much everyone loved her, Terrill said. I dont want them to ever forget her. While the cause of Mondays wreck remains under investigation, the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) reported Bergman crossed the center line into the path of Murphys oncoming 2007 Mack semitruck and trailer. The impact happened with such force it disengaged the trailer at the fth wheel and it entered into a ditch where it subsequently overturned. Bergman was traveling west on U.S. 98 and the truck was eastbound. For unknown reasons, Bergmans vehicle crossed the centerline of the roadway directly into the path of the oncoming semi. The driver of the truck swerved to the right in an attempt to avoid a collision. The left front of Bergmans 1996 Ford Explorer struck the semi-trucks left side tandem wheels and the fth wheel. The semi continued traveling in an easterly direction before overturning and coming to a nal rest on the south dirt shoulder of the roadway. Bergmans vehicle came to a nal rest in the eastbound travel lane, facing westerly, FHP Trafc Homicide Coordinator Sgt. Aaron Stephens explained. The stretch of roadway surrounding the crash was closed for several hours, with trafc diverted to Dice Road and Kinsey Road (both of which connect back to U.S. Highway 98). Deep gouges in the pavement and a heavy smell of diesel in the air testied to the violence of the crash Tuesday morning. The crash happened shortly after 5 p.m. and units from the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce (TCSO), Perry Police Department and Doctors Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services all responded. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) provided additional support in trafc control with crews called to the scene. A signicant diesel spill occurred and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) was called to assess the scene, Sgt. Stephens stated. An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday, however it will be 60-90 days before we have all the nal results of any tests conducted, he continued. Funeral services are pending. Her mother, two daughters and a large, loving family survive Bergman. She was also the daughter of the late Dale Terrill.

DMH board approves lease with county The Doctors Memorial Hospital (DMH) Board of Directors has approved a new 10-year lease agreement between the hospital and Taylor County. The county commission unanimously approved the agreement on Monday, Nov. 4, after several changes were made to the language, and turned it over to the DMH board for considation. According to DMH Board Chairman Ken Arnold, the board voted via e-mail late last week to approve the agreement. I looked it over with the changes and the corrections and I have no problems with it, Arnold said. Were looking forward to moving ahead. The new lease includes a clause giving the hospital board the authority to partner or participate with a regional health care system which in turn would have the ability to appoint up to two members to the DMH board. Although it was slightly reworded in the nal version of the lease, the authority remains, but new language was added which allows that any individual member of the board of county commissioners shall have the right to review any partnership agreement between DMH and another partnering healthcare organization upon request of the county administrator.

A-3 Taco Times November 20, 2013 He packed more in his just shy of 66 years than most people do in 100 years. He was a pilot, a doctor, traveler and ne artist. He was a Renaissance man, all without any guidance or person to look up to when he was growing up. For me I think the saddest part is that he will not get to enjoy his retirement. His grandchildren. My wedding. Watching the family he created ourish. I am grateful that his memory lives on in this town and that he had a lasting impact. The hospital and the DMH Foundation, of which Mutnal and wife were key supporters, honored his memory by dedicating an endoscopy suite in his name to honor his enduring contribution to our community, DMH CEO Geri Forbes said. He will be long remembered for his passion for disease prevention and health improvement. Many lives were saved and many people had an improved quality of life thanks to his dedication. He was a healer and an educator promoting screening and early detection to all his patients. The City of Perry has announced its garbage collection schedule for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday: service on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 25, and 26. garbage pickup on Wednesday, Nov. 27. closed Thursday and Friday, Nov. 28 and 29, for the holiday. The Perry City Council also voted to cancel its second meeting for November, scheduled the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. The council will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 10 and will not meet again until after the new year. A group of Taylor County STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) students were asked to speak at the Florida Department of Educations Community of Practice meeting in Orlando on Oct. 9. They were presented to 200 district level supervisors and spoke about their summer experiences and the programs they are taking at Taylor County High School (TCHS). They did such a great job they were invited to speak at the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Statewide Advisory Board meeting in Tallahassee on Nov. 12, STEM Program Cordinator Jesika Curry said. We are so proud of our students and the wonderful opportunities available to them here at TCHS. This past summer, six STEM students took part in a STEM Summer Workplace Experience at Buckeye. Justin Calhoun, Daniel Dudley, Evan Grambling, Eric Morgan, Grant Parker and Dylan Strickland spent eight days at Buckeye shadowing engineers. They attended meetings and were given access to the process of implementing the new O2 Delignication Process. They were able to speak with new and veteran engineers and learn about the different opportunities for employment at our local plant, Curry said. Many also discussed future internships with the company. All of these students took advantage of the many programs we offer here at TCHS to get a jump start on their engineering pre-requisites. They are currently enrolled in our drafting program and are taking advantage of our distance learning dual enrollment program. Another TCHS student, Jamarcus Robinson, took part in the University of Florida Immersion into STEM Experience. Throughout the week students interacted with university faculty and graduate students as opportunities were provided to learn about a variety of STEM career options and the post-secondary preparation required, Curry said. They also gained familiarity with techniques and procedures used in scientic research by conducting experiments which took place in the Health Science Center and were led by UF College of Medicine students and university faculty members. Students took advantage of some of the outside classrooms on campus as they learned about soils, explored a wetland ecosystem and spelunked in a dry cave.

A-7 Taco Times November 20, 2013 When you count your blessings dont forget to include your cousins your community & Gods protection By FLORRIE BURROUGHS Shady Grove correspondent It happened at Goose Pasture... My dad, Lawrence Rowell, and his brothers and sisters with all the children, had many reunionsespecially in earlier years. At least one of those happened at the Goose Pasture when it was pretty much in its natural state. Fish frying on an open re and swamp cabbage were dishes that we all enjoyed and these became staples at our reunions. On one of those trips, the girl cousins got into a fairly large boat. One long pole (I think we probably needed two) was used to guide the boat and to keep it from heading off down the fast-owing Wacissa River. The girls, probably ages 13 to 15 piled in--excited to be together again and ready to have an adventure. It was always so much fun to be with our rst cousins. We had not gone very far when an argument ensued over who should manage the pole. You can guess what happened. The pole was dropped into the water and there we were speeding helplessly down the river. The girls began to scream for help. Our parents on the bank heard us but were unable to help us because they had no boat. The only other boat was a smaller one that our older brother and one of our boy rst cousins had taken up the river. Thankfully they were within hearing (who wouldnt hear that screaming?) and came to our rescue. Were we glad to see them! This true story makes me think of the protection God gives us, even when we are fussing over a pole. I am so thankful for the many times He has protected me when I did not deserve it. At this Thanksgiving season, I am thinking of so many things for which I am thankful: my Christian faith which sustains me; my big wonderful familyfour brothers and one sister who all live here in Shady Grove; their children and grandchildren; my two wonderful sons and their wives and children--six beautiful granddaughters, one handsome grandson-and as I write this, I am anxiously awaiting a call from the grandson as to the birth of my rst greatgrandchild, granddaughter Kylee Rose! There are my stepgrandchildren also, six of them with two greats! A precious step-daughter and her husband, and the list goes on and on. I am thankful for work as it keeps me busy and out of trouble. Then there are the precious memories of loved ones gone home to be with Jesus. I am thankful for my church family and my dear pastor and his wife. I am thankful for the nursery and pre-school children I teach at church and for the work God has given me to do. I am thankful for this Shady Grove community and the many people who come together to help the council at the events we have throughout the year. I am amazed at the talent and the tenacity of the members of the council. Give them an assignment or let them see a need and they are on the way! This list could go on and on . but I must stop so this will be my nal thanks for now-there is the wonderful surgeon who did my knee surgery from which I have had an excellent recovery. No more pain! After walking in pain for several years, I am still amazed and so very thankful! Whats next on the calendar?The date of the tree-lighting in the park will be announced in my next article in two weeks. The Pleasant Grove Baptist Church Choir will sing from their Christmas Cantata. Saturday, Dec. 21, is the Fourth Annual Country Christmas. Following are contact numbers: craft booths and cakes for silent auction, Claire at 584-8370; parade entries, Florrie at 584-6343; chili entries, JoAnn at 5848181. Other questions, call any of the above. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving . a lot of folks are having difculties and need our prayers and our help. The following is a poem along those lines:Blessings I knelt to pray when day was done, and prayed, O Lord, bless everyone, lift from each saddened heart the pain, and let the sick be well again. And then I woke another day, and carelessly went on my way, the whole day long I did not try to wipe a tear from any eye. I did not try to share the load, of any brother on the road. I did not even go to see, the sick man just next door to me. Yet once again when day was done, I prayed, O Lord, bless everyone. But as I prayed, into my ear, there came a voice that whispered clear, Pause now, my son, before you pray. Whom have you tried to bless today? Gods sweetest blessing always go, by hands that serve him here below. And then I hid my face and cried, Forgive me, God, I have not tried, but let me live another day, and I will live the way I pray. --Author Unknown Thats all I have for now. See you back here in two weeks, Lord willing.
