Special Graduation Edition INSIDE TODAY Sul livan suggests 3-p erson team of Brown, Hall, Coo k: Woodfaulk objects to mayors plan to screen city manager applications Councilwoman Venita Woodfaulk found herself outnumbered Monday night when she expressed her desire to appoint noncity-afliated individuals to a hiring team that would screen applicants for the soon-to-be vacant city manager position. I dont believe we need to stay in-house with this. You dont think that there is someone in the community who would have (human resource/ HR) skills? The person we hire (as city manager) is going to be working with the community. I believe we need to go out to the public and get people for this committee, and not get people afliated with this (the city), Woodfaulk said. Her comments came in response to Mayor David Sullivans suggestion at the beginning of the workshop that the council appoint a three-person team to handle the initial vetting of applications for the city managers job. His recommendation for the team was Councilman Alan Hall, former councilman Don Cook and current city manager Bob Brown. Please see page 10All 19 candidates who have currently led for local ofces have turned in their petitions before Mondays deadline -including two new hopefuls, Cassie Lucille Buckley and Rhoda Ann Moehring. New candidates may still le to run, but now they must pay the qualifying fee. When asked Tuesday, elections ofcials said that every local candidate had met their petition requirements. As for the new candidates, Cassie Lucille Buckley has led to run for the Taylor County Commission District 2 seat as a no-party afliation (NPA) candidate, challenging incumbent Jim Moody. Additionally, Rhoda Ann Moehring has led as a Republican and joins a crowded County Commission District 3 race, which lost one of its existing candidates after Patrick C. Whitt withdrew from the race. Whitt and County Commission District 4 candidate Lanita Lynn Walker became the second and third candidates this election cycle to withdraw after ling to run, following in the footsteps of John Walter Johnson, who had led to run for the District 2 commission seat prior to dropping out. Moehring will face Sean Andrew Murphy in the Republican Primary in August, with the winner moving on to face Democrat Michael Elzie Newman, as well as NPA candidates Steve Spradley, Jodie James DeVane and Ursula P. Miller.

I could read and write English, but learning to speak it Connor Stengel Anika Chowdhury Please see page 3 Please see page 3The Taylor School Board has unanimously voted to ask voters to renew a 0.25 mill critical needs property tax for an additional four years to help fund academic, non-core programs such as music and physical education, as well as cover the cost of increasing operating expenses. If approved by the Taylor County Board of County Commissioners, the referendum will go before voters on the Nov. 6 general election ballot. In 2010, Taylor County voters narrowly approved the same measure, which allowed the Taylor County School District to levy the 0.25 mill tax to cover certain costs, namely bringing back physical education and music classes to lower grades and helping fund student bus transportation. With the current tax levy set to expire July 2019, the resolution was passed with no discussion. School Board Member Jeannie Mathis made a motion to place the referendum on the ballot, with a second from School Board Member Danny Lundy. The measure passed 5-0. According to Taylor County School District Director of Finance Ashley Valentine, money generated from the renewed 0.25 mill property tax will continue to fund programs such as art and music. These programs were cut in 2008 due to the recession, but have since been reintroduced to Taylor County schools. According to Valentine, the local district has Please see page 10 For transportation, art, musi c: School Board asks voters to renew critical needs tax Stengel earns top honors Made in Perry Perry-based Amrouch Snacks is now producing its line of quality extruded and puffed corn snacks with packaging and boxes stating the products are manufacturing and distributed from the local Perry plant that formerly housed Snyders Lance on Highway 19.

A-4 Taco Times May 23, 2018 Living School bus drivers rock! The Taylor County School District showed its appreciation for bus drivers during a breakfast held in their honor Tuesday, May 8. You are often the the tone for whether or not that student is going to have a good day. We appreciate everything you do, Superintendent of Schools Danny Glover Jr. said. Individual schools showed their thanks by posting messages on billboards and signs. Above, district drivers are shown with Glover (second from left) and Transportation Director Chris Folsom (far right). By LORI WIGGINS Taylor County UF/IFAS Extension Agent III When the temperatures soar, theres nothing like hitting the coastline or river for a fun, family-friendly boating excursion. For a full day on the water, bring snacks and foods to replenish your energy. Chips and cookies may be tasty, but dont forget to pack healthy snacks that wont load you and your kids up with extra sugar and fat while draining your energy. Fruits and Veggies Fruits and vegetables are a natural source of energy, which you may need if youre swimming, snorkeling or water skiing while out on the boat. Pack easy-to-eat and serve fruits and veggies in an ice-lled cooler. Include carrots and pre-cut broccoli pieces. Cut yellow, green and red bell peppers into bite-sized slices. Bring fruits that are ready to eat, such as oranges or tangerines, apples, bananas, strawberrries, watermelon and grapes. Transfer low-fat creamy dressing or dips to serving sized containers and pack them in the cooler. Healthy Carbs Leave the greasy potato chips at home and bring healthier sources of carbohydrates to give you energy and protect your muscles. Bring veggie chips instead of tortilla versions. Pack whole-wheat crackers and low-sodium pretzels. Low-fat popcorn and granola bars are other healthy options during a day on the water. Protein Protein helps to prevent fatigue and build and repair muscle tissue. Boat-friendly snacks that feature protein include string cheese or mini cheeses; nuts, including peanuts, almonds, cashews and walnuts. For meals, pre-make tuna or chicken salad sandwiches with low-fat dressing in place of mayo or pack some beef or turkey jerky. Make sure you have plenty of ice or ice packs to keep perishable foods from spoiling. Sweets Choose sweet snacks, such as sugar-free gelatin or pudding snacks. Gingersnap cookies are low-fat and come in whole-grain varieties. Ginger is also a natural remedy for nausea, so the cookies may come in handy. Summer is here -snack healthy!

A-5 Taco Times May 23, 2018 Religion By DR. WILLIE ANDERSON It is that time of year again. A time of celebrationGraduation Day. Emotions are ying high, and there are a lot of questions that need to be answered -some spoken and many unspoken. Many parents or guardians are patting themselves on the back, thanking God that they have brought their children to the point of the beginning of their adult lives. Children are happy that they have survived up until this point of their lives, and that they have made it out of high school. But now its time to answer some of the questions that have been lurking in the back of their minds: Where do I go from here? How do I get there? What do I really want to be? The oodgate of questions is busting wide open, and it can be very scary for our young visionaries and parents as well. There is the question of whether to let them go -standing on the promise of God that says, If you train up a child in the way it should go, when it gets old it shall not depart from you. (Prov. 22:6) This is where the rubber meets the road, trusting in every single thing that we have invested and poured into our children will help them make the right decisions in life. We know that they have been underneath our watchful eye up until this particular point. Now its time to yield to a power that is greater than ourselves, to the One with an all-seeing eye to watch over them when we cannot. Yes, I must say, this is the crossroads of life. Just think with me for a moment on how a crossroad looks. You can either go right or left, go straight or turn around and go back to where you came from. Imagine you standing in the middle of the crossroads -either you are the parent or the student, trying to decide which way you are going, knowing that the decision you are about to make will shape a part of your destiny. In life, this is where fear tries to creep in, and we must understand what the scripture tells us that God has not given us the spirit of fear. (2 Tim.1:7) We know that this is a trick of the enemy. Although crossroads can be scary, they can also be very exciting. It can be a little adventurous as well, knowing that every decision you make the Lord God is with you. The scripture says in the third chapter of Proverbs, Trust in the Lord with all thy heart, lean not unto your own understanding and in all things acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path. This scripture truly takes the sting out of the fear. Whatever decision is made at the crossroads -as long as we look to God and trust Him for guidance -everything will be all right. The journey of life can be truly beautiful for those who truly trust God and yield to His guidance. I salute all of the youth of today on the accomplishments they have made thus far, and I leave with you one more thought: While you are at the crossroads of life, remember where faith and purpose meet. That is your road, the one you take to your destiny. Dream big, shoot for the moon, and if you happen to fall short, at least you will still be among the stars! Dr. Willie Anderson is the senior pastor and founder of Greater Grace Church of God in Christ Perry. He is known as the Faith Doctor and his motto for life is, You can never out sin Gods Grace.In the Bible, glad tidings is frequently translated to mean to tell good news and to preach the gospel. This space is dedicated to messages of good news to ll readers with uplifting thoughts to carry with them throughout the week.GLADTIDINGS The crossroads of life All graduating seniors are invited to Baccalaureate Services planned tonight (Wednesday) at First Assembly of God.
