By CAITLYN BURCHETT Contributing writer BBQ Kings Polska (Polish BBQ Kings) team members brought a taste of Poland to Perry at the Smokin in the Pines BBQ Festival on Saturday at Forest Capital Park, sharing a taste of Polishstyle barbecue and a love for cookout culture with competing teams and guests. After borrowing a grill and some charcoal and making a quick stop at a store, the visiting professional BBQ cook team whipped up a barbecue dish to share with competing cook teams, volunteers and some festival attendees prior to the awards presentation near the main stage. BBQ Kings Polska -decked out in personalized matching red shirts and competition aprons featuring their sponsors -prepared a main dish of smoked pork with cabbage and mushrooms, paired with a side of smoked herring mixed with chunks of apples and onion in a sour cream sauce -each featuring a distinct Polish style and avor. Team members Artur Musztyfaga, Maciej Grubman, Tomasz Gawarzynski, Miroslan Reszczyk, Mariusz Tkaczyk and Jaroslow Uscinski attended this years Smokin in the Pines BBQ Festival as special guests of the local Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Development Council (TDC) to observe and learn, in hopes of returning to compete in next years event.

The training building, which serves city, county and Foley reghters, was made possible in part through a $36,000 donation from Foley Cellulose and the Georgia-Pacic Foundation. Taylor County Fire-Rescue provided the inter-model containers (ConExes) and the materials needed for construction of the building. The multi-story training facility, equipped with a burn room and sprinklers, was built on a site donated by the City of Perry. Foley Fire Brigade members Jarrian Thomas, Ty Crowley and Lamar Weatherly recently completed a 40-hour training regiment. Matt Coulliette, Ronald Folsom and Brad McNicol have all completed Live Burn training. Training was led by instructors Michael Fox and Brian Miller. Grant to fund full-time reghter for beaches Taylor County will receive $128,583 in federal funds over the next three years to help hire a full-time reghter to be stationed in the beaches area. Currently, the Taylor County beaches (Dekle, Keaton, Cedar, Dark and Bird Island) and surrounding areas are served by the main Taylor County Fire-Rescue (TCFR) station located at Perry-Foley Airport and volunteer reghters. TCFR Chief Dan Cassel told the county commission last week that the county has been awarded a Stafng for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). AMTEC Less-Lethal Systems: ALS explosion claims 2nd life In every family, there is that one member who can always be counted on to make you smile. For the Fowler-Evernham family, that person was son and brother Thomas Fowler Jr. He was full of love, joy and happiness, his sister, Lora Harrop, said. He was just a good person. He liked being busy and doing things. He loved being around people and made friends so easy, his mother, Emily Mangini Evernham, said. On Friday, Sept. 21, Fowler succumbed to injuries he sustained a week earlier during a work-related explosion at AMTEC LessLethal Systems (ALS). He was 56 years old. He came to Perry to be with our mother after our stepfather died. He was the kindest and most lovable man. He was always there for everybody, Harrop said. The explosion that claimed Fowlers life and that of his co-worker, Christina Vann Patterson, happened around 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14. Patterson was pronounced dead at the scene and Fowler was airlifted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. He was critical from Day 1, Harrop said. Fowler had been with AMTEC since it opened in Perry ve years ago, and both he and Patterson were classied as production operators. As the ALS family seeks to honor Christinas life, her family and close friends, we are deeply saddened and are mourning Thomas passing. Like Christina, Thomas Thomas Fowler Jr. To Perrys Smokin in the Pines BBQ Festival:BBQ Kings offer taste of Poland Aireld lighting to get $435,000 in upgrades The Perry-Foley Airport will soon receive a muchneeded upgrade to its aireld lighting system, which dates back to the 1940s, thanks to a $435,000 project almost entirely funded by grants. In August, the Taylor County Commission approved an agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for a $384,100 grant to help cover the cost of the project. The county has already received a $43,126 grant from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). According to County Grants Coordinator Melody Cox, the county will be required to provide an $8,743 match, which was included in the countys 2018-19 proposed budget. The county previously received a grant from FDOT to fund the design and engineering of the project. The existing aireld lighting system at PerryFoley Airport dates back to the 1940s and is in critical need of rehabilitation, Cox said in a memorandum to the commission. The underground electrical cable is directly buried in the ground and has deteriorated due to age, weather and Please see page 2 Please see page 3 Please see page 2Perry police ofcers now have the option of serving and out under recent changes to its pension plan. The new provision allows ofcers with 20 years of service to retire and draw approximately 65 percent of their base pay. This is a new option that will allow ofcers to retire early, Perry Police Department (PPD) Chief Jamie Cruse said. There has been no change to the remaining retirement scale. Ofcers retiring with 25 years of service draw 81 percent of their base pay; while those serving for 30 years draw 99 percent of their base pay. For example, an ofcer who retires with 20 years (making an average salary of $45,000) will receive an estimated $29,250 in annual retirement income. An ofcer who retires with 25 years will receive $36,563 annually. The longer you work, the better the benets. However, for some, 20 years is long enough to deal with the trauma ofcers experience in law enforcement, Cruse said.

Take a moment to recall the last time you saw that twinkle in his eye as you expressed your admiration for him. Recall the deep satisfaction you felt watching his eyes light up with soaring condence because he knew he had your support. How long has it been since you experienced moments like this with your husband? Too long? Would you like to return to that good place in your marriage? Or are you afraid too many years have passed, too many hurtful words have been said, too many toomanys have taken place? It takes two to destroy a marriage, but it only takes one to begin to put it back together. God can use you to restore your relationship with your husband when you choose to apply 1 Corinthians 13:7 in your marriage: Love...is ever ready to believe the best of every person. You have a choice. You can continue to experience that sinking feeling each time you see hurt and discouragement in your husbands eyes because you berated him, yet another time, for not doing something right. (Just writing this makes me never want to see that look in my husband, Berts, eyes again.) Or you can have deeply satisfying moments every time you stand with your husband, believing in him and choosing to focus on whats good about him. Imagine what would happen if you began right now to believe in your husband, to begin trusting that he really wants to be the man God created him to be. Even if your marriage is a good one, it can be better. Imagine what it will do for your husband if he knows absolutely knows you believe in him. Wives, I want to assure you that God cares about your needs, too. He knows how deeply you want to be treated in loving and respectful ways. So Im challenging you to trust Him and His Word. Faithfully practice 1 Corinthians 13:7 for one month. In 30 days, what do you think your husbands eyes will be saying when he looks at you? What will yours be saying to him? Sheryl H.
