Right-of-way violations All on General Election ballot Six will vie for District 3 seat Please see page 3 The Perry City Council will hold a special workshop Monday, May 21, to discuss how it plans to conduct the search for a new city manager to replace retiring Manager Bob Brown. I was shocked when I received the call last week from Bob regarding his retirement, Mayor David Sullivan said during the councils regular meeting held Tuesday, May 8. I think a workshop is needed, he added. His fellow council members agreed and approved the May 21 date. While we will not be able to make any decisions, since it will be a workshop and not a regular meeting, but we can get an idea of what we want to do and then vote on it at our next meeting -which will be Tuesday, May 22, Sullivan said I would encourage each of you to be thinking about the minimum qualications you want to include with the job Council to review qualications for city manager postPlease see page 4Perry City Councilwoman Venita Woodfaulk chided fellow council members for what she called snappy responses to concerns expressed by a local resident regarding the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists on Old Dixie Highway. The exchange began with Perry resident Cindy Moore asking the council at its rst regular meeting in May to provide safety vests for people who ride their bicycles on the heavily Woodfaulk to council: Dont be so quick to snap at constituentsPlease see page 4Residents living in the area of the local GeorgiaPacic mill may have noticed louder-than-normal noise coming from the Foley Cellulose plant recently. According to Foley Cellulose Mill Public Affairs Manager Scott Mixon, a few residents contacted him concerning unusually loud noise in excess of normal mill operations being generated by the local mill over the weekend. The noise was the result of a failed steam relief valve which vented excess steam, Mixon said. We have repaired the valve, and the steam venting has ceased. We regret any inconvenience that the noise caused for our residents. Although unrelated to the recent excess steam releases, the Foley Cellulose is undertaking an ongoing series of improvements and upgrades at the local Foley mill. In April, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Whats that noise? Neighbors notice when GP lets off excess steamPlease see page 4County commissioners selected Bill Brynes and Priscilla Tripp to serve on the Doctors Memorial Hospital (DMH) Board of Directors at the countys recent May 7 meeting. After advertising for interested volunteers in the local newspaper twice in April, the county received six applications for the two upcoming vacancies on the DMH Board. Two of the six applicants were not submitted for consideration due to DMH bylaws prohibiting current DMH employees from serving on the DMH Board. After being ranked as the top two applicants by four of the ve commissioners, Brynes was re-appointed and Tripp was appointed to the DMH Board by a 4-0 vote. Commissioner Jim Moody abstained from voting to avoid any potential conict of interest after declaring that Tripp is his sister. The other two applicants were local certied public accountant (CPA) Doris Sparkman and Jeannine Ramey, who has worked as a clinical IT director, healthcare regulatory director and is employed with GE Healthcare. We appreciate these volunteers stepping forward to serve, County Commission Chairwoman Pam Feagle said. We know it is a very big and important task. Brynes, a CPA with a masters degree in Public Administration, served as Perrys city manager for 19 years before retiring in 2005 and is a former Chamber of Commerce and Taylor County Development Authority (TCDA) board member. In his application, Brynes stated he wishes to continue to serve our community and assist DMH to become protable. The facility is beginning to age and will need assistance to make major repairs and replacement of equipment. A portion of the (countys one-cent local option) sales tax should be put aside in a trust account for major repairs and equipment replacement. Brynes suggested the county set aside an amount each year to fund major repairs so funds will be available when needed. When asked, In your opinion, what is the single most important issue facing rural healthcare in Florida, Brynes responded, The continued reduction in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement and the increasing demand for services while payment for these same services are decreasing. Tripp, who received a bachelors degree from the University of Central Florida Brynes, Tripp named to DMH board Please see page 4

A-7 Taco Times May 16, 2018 Religion Unless you people see signs and wonders, Jesus told him, you will never believe. --John 4: 48 If we take the time and effort to look closely, we will realize that miracles are all around us. Almost everything, when viewed properly, is a miracle. Life, the solar system and matter itself are miraculous. These things are awe-inspiring and defy easy explanations from almost any perspective. From a philosophical point of view it is impossible to answer the question why there is a universe in the rst place, and once we begin to look at life and the material universe from a scientic perspective, we see that it is innitely complex and always amazing. One doesnt have to be religious to be inspired by the world around us, and many scientists and students of science wax poetic when they begin to grasp the miraculous intricacies of our wondrous universe. Many people think of miracles as God doing something to violate the laws of nature, of God doing tricks for us, as it were. But, God is the very author of the laws of nature. If you want to see the miracle, just look around you. Its in the starry heavens above you, in the sand beneath your feet, in the beating heart within you and, perhaps, most of all, in the mass of neurons that is your brain, which allows you to contemplate it all.Miracles everywhere GLAD TIDINg G S Ouida Nell DormanOuida Nell Dorman, 82, died May 13, 2018, in Perry.

Box 47, Steinhatchee, Fl 32359.James Jim Leroy RawlinsJames Jim Leroy Rawlins, 68, was united with his Savior May 11, 2018, in Gainesville. Jim was born Oct. 15, 1949, in Bartow to Leroy Rawlins and Mildred Rawlins. Jim honorably served his country in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He was a revivalist, apostle, author, college professor, pastor, school principal and, after 40-plus years of ministry, prior to getting sick, he traveled throughout the nation, unlocking regions for a move of God. Jim dreamed one night as a young boy he was standing behind the podium in the U.S. Senate praying for revival in America. That dream placed a lifelong burning desire inside of him for a Third Great Awakening in his dearly beloved America. That burning desire resulted in the founding of Keys of Awakening Ministries. In August 2016, the Lord asked Jim if he was going to live in Taylor County and leave it the same. A few months later, the strategy for this was given and Impact Taylor Prayer Group was founded. This group of prayer warriors formed and began to work on uniting the body of Christ to advance the Kingdom of Heaven in defeating drugs in our region. Jim served in full time ministry for more than 40 years. His multifaceted ministry of revivalist, apostle, missionary, author and also serving in Christian education as teacher, principal and college professor equipped him to unlock regions. God not only gifted and prepared Jim to unlock regions, but also uniquely equipped him to father a coming generation of revivalists. His hearts desire was to not pass the baton of revival to the next generation, but to run alongside of them as a multi-generational army marching towards revival. Jim authored four published books including, Twenty-one Keys of Awakening. Jim was preceded in death by: his rst wife, Neva Rawlins; his father, Leroy Rawlins; and his brother, Robert S. Bobby Rawlins. Jim is survived by: his wife, Joan Rawlins; his children, Linda Wolf, Cheryl Laprade (Mike), Jon Rawlins (Jessica) and Maggie Wallace (Paul); his stepchildren, Chad Agner (Coleen), Samantha Crouse and Christopher Sessions; his mother, Mildred Rawlins; 14 grandchildren; and ve great-grandchildren; as well as a host of nieces and nephews.
