Several dozen local business and governmental leaders gathered at the former Snyders-Lance chip plant here Monday morning for what they believed would be a routine ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome Amrouch Snacks to the community. However, many in the crowd were pleasantly surprised by Amrouch Snacks President Mahmoud Amrouchs announcement of a partnership that will make the Perry plant the new U.S. headquarters of Super-Pufft Snacks Corp. one of North Americas largest manufacturers of private label (store branded) snacks. After opening with a spiritual hymn by Mary Jackson, prayer by City Mayor David Sullivan and Pledge of Allegiance by Perry Police Department Ptl. Jay Ricketson, Taylor County Development Authority (TCDA) Board Member Alan Dodimead welcomed company ofcials to the community. Amrouch took the podium to thank City Manager Bob Brown, County Administrator Ted Lakey, TCDA Director Scott Frederick, the city council and county commission, as well as Taylor County Tax Collector Mark Wiggins for their roles in bringing the chip manufacturer to Perry. Amrouch then delivered Serving the Tree Capital of the South Since 1963 50 One Section 55th year, No. 25 Wednesday June 20, 2018 Index Editorial . ................. A-4 Living . .....................

Stephen Michael Davis, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene. Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Cpl. Michael Cross reported Davis was traveling southwest on Fish Creek Road when he failed to negotiate a right curve. Davis lost control of his 2002 Volvo and the vehicle veered off the left shoulder of the road and overturned, Cross said. Davis, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected through the front drivers side window. The crash happened at 1:53 p.m., just east of West Fork Road Under new Super-Pufft-Amrouch partnership Perry is U.S. snack headquarters More than 11 grams of methamphetamine were seized during a fourday Deputies Without Borders operation led by the Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce (TCSO). Dubbed Operation Summer Frost, deputies and ofcers from the Florida Highway Patrol, Jefferson County Sheriffs Ofce and Perry Police Department joined TCSO in late-night criminal interdiction patrols Tuesday, June 12, through Friday, June 15. A total of 11 arrests were made, including four felony arrests and seven misdemeanors. Three suspects were arrested on drug-related charges, and one of the drug seizures led to a search warrant at a residence on Foley Cut-Off Road, TCSO Capt. Jimmy Cash said. An adult and a juvenile were also charged after they were caught stealing from two county roll-off sites, he said. Those arrests followed a trafc stop on Keaton Beach Road. Further investigation found that the pair was suspected in thefts from roll-off sites in both Shady Grove and Keaton Beach. Also during the operation, two suspects were arrested for driving under the inuence (DUI) and nine criminal citations were issued for driving offenses. The three suspects facing drug-related charges included: Kimberly Matthews, 31; Roger Lee Slaughter, 32; and Lee Bern Hunter, 51. We feel this was a fairly successful rst operation and we be conducting more operations like this in the future, Cash said. 3 on ice after Operation Summer Frost Chieand man killed in rollover This Friday, June 22, is the deadline to submit applications for the City of Perry city manager position that will be vacated in September with the retirement of current manager Bob Brown. Members of the Perry City Council will hold a special meeting Friday, June 29, at 6 p.m., to begin reviewing applications. Opening weekend (Photo by Valena Driggers, Air & Opportunity Aerial Photography and Videography)9 apply for city manager; special meeting planned City Manager Bob Brown shared encouraging economic development news at last weeks Perry City Council meeting, announcing that an area ophthalmologist planned to open a new branch ofce here. The Taylor County Development Authority (TCDA) has been working with Dr. Shalesh Kaushal for quite awhile, Brown said. He will start out with a limited schedule, with plans to expand. He will initially be located at Premier Medical Clinic. He was the head of the eye department at the University of Florida and was then recruited by the University of Massachusetts to start their eye program, he said. Dr. Kaushal is expected to begin seeing patients here July 18. Please see page 2 New eye doctor, Papa Johns locating here Please see page 2Taylor County should collect over $40,000 after receiving more than 900 bids to purchase some of the nearly 60 aluminum nger docks that were auctioned off by sealed bid last month. According to Assistant County Administrator LaWanda Pemberton, the county looks to collect approximately $43,000 if all of the successful bidders submit payment and collect their winning bids. At the conclusion of the countys June 7 meeting, Commissioner Malcolm Page praised Pemberton for handling everything so well while Ted (County Administrator Ted Lakey) was gone. And she did it all without having a stroke, Page added. I heard the dock sale went very well. Commissioners pointed out Pemberton had to open and read each of the 900 bids out loud after one bidder requested it. I doubt we collect the full $43,000 because we are having to go to the second or third bidder on a few of the docks after the high bidder did not respond, Pemberton said. It went well, but I dont want to do it again next week, Pemberton added. I would like to give a special thanks to LaWanda for the work she did the past two weeks while our county administrator was out of the ofce, Commissioner Pam Feagle said. I do not know how you did all that you did, unless Docks generate 900 bids and $40,000 Please see page 2Qualifying for Perry City Council candidates ended Monday, with a total of four candidates in two races set to compete for votes this August. Incumbent District 4 Councilman Alan C. Hall will be facing a challenge from Mary Williams. Meanwhile, Perry Mayor David Sullivan (District 5) announced he will not seek a second term, and Tonya B. Holton and Ward Eugene Ketring are running to ll his seat. Although the city turned over the duties of receiving and reviewing candidates documentation to Supervisor of Elections Dana Southerland and her staff, the city charter still requires the current city council to vote on qualifying the led candidates. According to City Manager Bob Brown, that vote will occur at the councils Tuesday, June 26, meeting. When asked, Brown said that there are no further steps for the candidates to take prior to the vote, unless the council requests additional information, but he said he did not foresee that being necessary. According to Southerland, all four candidates completed their qualifying paperwork prior to Mondays deadline. If approved next week, the candidates will appear on the Aug. 28 primary election ballot. Since there are no more than two candidates in either city race, the winner will be determined in the primary election -with no need for candidates to move on to the November general election. Early voting for the primary election will run Aug. 13-25. Qualifying for county races began on Monday Please see page 24 qualify for city racesPlease see page 12

(Clockwise) Hearts for Hometown Dogs coand rescue volunteers load animals headed for rescue; vans arrived crammed with empty crates 80 animals rescued were two nursing mothers and their litters of puppies, shown being carried out of the shelter by a Gainesville volunteer and Animal Control Coordinator Heather Jensen. short-lived -as reports show seven dogs and six cats were taken in during just the three-day period preceding presstime. By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Managing Editor The dog days of summer took on a whole new meaning at the Taylor County Animal Shelter last week, with ofcials reporting an intake of 110 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens -all since the beginning of June. But, just when it looked like the shelter was going to be overrun in a tsunami of owner surrenders and strays, three no-kill pet rescue groups from Gainesville came to the rescue. On Thursday, June 14, volunteers from Hailes Angels Pet Rescue, Alachua County Human Society and Gainesville Pet Rescue swept in and rescued 53 dogs, 17 cats and three rabbits. They arrived in vans stuffed with empty crates there were soon lled with dogs of nearly every shape, size and breed. Taylor Countys own Hearts for Hometown Dogs (HFHD) helped coordinate the rescue and assisted shelter staff in loading the animals. We are speechless, and no words can ever express how grateful we are to these wonderful organizations for helping us save so many precious lives, HFHDs Kendra Murphy said. We are sure that most of you know what a shelter like ours faces on a dayto-day basis. This is a very hard time of year for rural shelters like ours. Due to the limited space that we and other rural shelters have, every day we face trying to gure out where we can place one more puppy or what can we move to have room for that one last kitty of the day. Our trucks come in full while strays, surrenders, injured and neglected pets haunt our gates all day long, Animal Control Coordinator Heather Jensen said. The mental wear and tear, as well as the physical rigors, can be all-consuming. All over America, when a facility has nothing left to give and the seams are stretched to bursting, unwanted decisions must be made. Many beautiful animals must lose their lives for simply just existing. Our animal control shelter intakes are somewhere around 110 animals just this month so far -with half of the month left to go. The daily struggle is real, she said. But, not this past Thursday -Gainesville Pet Rescue, Hailes Angels Pet Rescue and Alachua County Humane Society came rolling through our gates like Aladdin on his magic carpet! ( They sa ved almost 80 animal lives. They whizzed around the shelter creating the magic of empty kennels. That, our dear friends, is something awesome. We can only say thank you for providing us with much-needed relief. While we know that this relief will only last a minute, and that our kennels will be full again in just a few days or so, for those 73 animals it meant their very lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jensen said. And remember, please, please spay and neuter. Before you adopt, rescue, purchase or procure any kind of animal be aware of the responsibility and choose wisely.

A-6 Taco Times June 20, 2018 Religion By SHERYL H. BOLDT How often during our day do we nd ourselves angry or bitter? As often as we nd ourselves happy or thankful? If we kept track of every time we had a negative thought, then recorded how long we allowed ourselves to dwell on that thought, what would we discover about ourselves? What if we did the same thing with our positive thoughts? Would our log reveal that we give more time to depressing thoughts or cheerful ones? So thenwhat kind of mood have you been in today? This week? Is this week reective of the emotional climate of most of your weeks? I hate being angry and bitter. It sours my day and my relationships, not to mention my witness. I nd that I often become angry whenever I feel cheated. The longer I allow anger and bitterness to eat at me, the more depressed I become. If we nd ourselves having more negative than positive days, what would it take for us to feel betterabout life? I believe the answer to this question is faith especially the kind of faith Paul commended the Colossians for in Colossians 1:4 (AMPC): For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus [the leaning of your entire human personality on Him in absolute trust and condence in His power, wisdom, and goodness]. I read that scripture, and my entire being yearns to comply. Think how it would change our thought life if we were to lean our entire personality on God everything that makes us, us: the way we think, the way we set goals, everything. Imagine how it would change our mood if we were to trust completely in His power (knowing Hes capable of handling anything we throw at Him); have total condence in His wisdom (knowing He knows what to do and when to do it); and have absolute assurance in His goodness (knowing Hes for us not against us). Wouldnt this kind of faith transform our lives? So then...how often will we allow ourselves to be angry or bitter for the rest of the day? What kind of mood do we want to be in for this next hour? Lets make this day this hour better than the previous one by boldly trusting in Gods power, wisdom and goodness. Sheryl H. Boldt is the author of the blog, www.TodayCanBeDifferent.net.

his big announcement, revealing his company had entered into a new partnership with Canadas largest manufacturer of salty snacks throughout North American and overseas. The local personal interaction we received was crucial in making our decision, Amrouch said. And now, with this partnership, we will be one of the major employers in Perry. Super-Pufft based in Mississauga, Canada, just outside of Toronto has been in business for more than 60 years and produces and markets snack foods and beverages to food retailers in over 30 countries around the world, according to President/ CEO Yousif Al-Ali, who ceremony. Super-Pufft is the preferred store brand manufacturer for a wide range of North Americas largest retailers, including Wal-Mart, Dollar General and Winn-Dixie, and the Super-Pufft snack food line includes potato chips, potato crisps, popcorn, extruded snacks and pellets. The companys beverage line includes juices, teas, sauces and purees. Our plan is to add more production lines to this facility and become a major employer here, Al-Ali said. City Council ViceMayor Alan Hall pointed out the city and countys unemployment rate has fallen below the state in years, and County Commission Chair Pam from both companies and called it a great, exciting day for Perry before presenting both Amrouch and Al-Ali with plaques. Amrouch Snacks is a family-owned company that manufactures, produces and distributes quality extruded and puffed corn snacks (cheese balls, cheese puffs, veggie straws, jalapeno straws, multi-grain chips and onion rings) for private label store brands like Family Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Food Lion and Save-a-Lot. Amrouch recently relocated its operations from Miami and is in the process of ramping up production at its plant located on Highway 19 in Perry. Amrouch also has a factory in Istanbul, Turkey, with 300 employees. Mahmoud Amrouch will remain as president of the local plant, which will now be known as Super-Pufft Snacks USA. He will be joined by his brother, VicePresident of Operations Walid Amrouch. The partnership will allow Super-Pufft to expand into more of the United States, while also allowing Amrouch to increase its volume and workforce by an estimated 30%. mean more volume for us, which means a lot more employment, Amrouch said Tuesday. This partnership makes us stronger and gives SuperPufft the ability to expand into the United States faster because of the logistics of our location. This partnership gives both of us the strength we need to capture a bigger share of the market, Amrouch added. SuperPufft has a large part of the (private label) business in Canada, and this will help both of us grow our base in the U.S, Amrouch added. According to Amrouch, his company has been looking throughout the Southeast for a new facility. The challenge at our Miami facility was space, and that is why the plant allows us to go after the bigger contracts, Amrouch said months ago when he announced the purchase of the Perry plant. It appears those plans are already coming to fruition with the announcement of Amrouchs partnership with Super-Pufft President/ CEO Yousif Al-Ali. The Al-Ali family immigrated here from Iraq more than 20 years ago and purchased Super-Pufft -an outdated popcorn plant. In just a few years, the family accomplished their vision of converting the company into a state-of-the-art snack food facility, exporting snack foods to more than 30 countries, including Belgium, Mongolia and Israel. In the last several years Super-Pufft has completed a $6 million plant expansion project to double its kettle chip production, and with the aid of a $1 million investment from the Ontario governments Jobs and Prosperity Food and Beverage Growth Fund -Super-Pufft recently invested nearly $9 million to purchase and install a new canister crisp line at its 160,000 square foot manufacturing facility located just west of Toronto. These investments helped the Canadian snack manufacturer double its production capacity and capitalize on new export opportunities, leading to Super-Pufft hiring more than 35 additional full-time employees. Super-Pufft USA President Mahmoud Amrouch is hoping to oversee the same type of growth and expansion here in Perry and credits local possible. I was very impressed with the teamwork between the TCDA, city and county. They made it all happen in a very short period of time, Amrouch said. When we looked at sites in other states they took a while to get back to you, but here they had us on the agenda at the very next meeting. It all happened very quickly. Scott Frederick helped facilitate everything with the broker, myself, city and county, Amrouch said. City council members, county commissioners and Tax Collector Mark Wiggins were all instrumental in making this happen. I was shocked after seeing how it would take months when we looked at other sites, and within a matter of just a few days or weeks Perry and Taylor County made it happen. With their new location in Perry, Super-Pufft can now reach 20% of the nations population with an overnight truck shipment, Frederick said. This will expand the market share of both companies immediately. They will use the Jacksonville port for overseas shipments, and there are a lot of dead head trucks leaving Florida empty that we can use to transport product out in a cost-effective manner, Frederick added. Amrouch said that there is still a very real possibility that the local plant will be expanded to include packaging in the future, adding that the recent merger with Super-Pufft makes it more likely.
