Sheriff Wayne Padgett issued the mandatory evacuation order shortly before noon on Tuesday and said deputies would begin notifying residents as soon as possible, Taylor County Emergency Management (TCEM) ofcials said. Buses were stationed at Steinhatchee School and the Keaton Beach boat ramp to help shuttle people to the Red Cross shelter at Taylor County Elementary School, which opened at 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Most non-essential government ofces in the Teen leads ofcers on three-county car chase Miss Florida Forest Festival 2018 Taylor Countys 2018 Florida Forest Festival royalty -including Miss Florida Forest Festival, Little King and Little Queen -will be crowned during ceremonies held Saturday, Oct. 13, at Forest Capital Hall. The combined pageant will begin at 6 p.m. The Florida Forest Festival pageant is a long standing tradition in our community. Although we only had three contestants this year, we wanted to honor the commitment and leadership of our three young ladies with a special event. As we have before, we are combining the festival pageant with Little King and Queen to create the greatest value for our community and the participants. Join us for a very special evening and fantastic event, Festival Chairman Scott Mixon said. Three Taylor County teens will be vying for the Miss Florida Forest Festival crown: Contestant #1 Haley Suzzett Armstrong Haley Suzzett Armstrong is the daughter of Thomas and Marlene Harrison. After graduation, she plans to pursue a degree Festival queen will be crowned this SaturdayPlease see page 2Who will be queen? The 2018 Miss Florida Forest Festival contestants are: (left to right) Jenna Lee, Haley Suzzett Armstrong and Abby Anna Stewart. A St. Petersburg teen led ofcers and troopers on a high-speed chase through three counties Sunday afternoon, with speeds topping 100 miles per hour. The chase began in Jefferson County around 2:33 p.m. when Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) troopers observed a 2014 Honda Accord that matched the description of a stolen vehicle from Tallahassee traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 19, just south of North Barber Hill Road. The vehicle was going 107 miles per hour in a 55 mile-per-hour zone, weaving through trafc, following too close and cutting vehicles off, FHP reported. Troopers attempted to overtake the vehicle and observed the driver braking aggressively when the vehicle approached the intersection of U.S. 19 and South Salt Road. The chase continued southbound on U.S. 19, crossing into Taylor County. The suspect, later identied as Demons Thompson, 19, ran through stoplights at the intersections of U.S. 19 and Highway 98, and U.S. 19 and Puckett Road. A Taylor County Sheriffs Ofce deputy and Perry Police Department ofcer joined troopers in the chase, which continued several miles south on U.S. 19 before crossing into Dixie County. The Dixie County Sheriffs Ofce deployed spike strips, which Thompson ran over just before being taken into custody during a high risk trafc stop at SW Mount Olive Church Road in Dixie County. He stopped the vehicle in the middle of the inside lane and put his hands out of the drivers window, surrendering to ofcers, FHP reported. He faces charges of eeing and eluding a law enforcement ofcer, reckless driving, dealing in stolen property and possession of a stolen vehicle. No injuries were reported, and the investigation remains on-going. Georgia-Pacics Foley Cellulose mill is scheduled to temporarily shut down as a safety precaution in anticipation of the arrival of Hurricane Michael. We continue to monitor weather conditions closely as Hurricane Michael approaches the panhandle of Florida, Foley Cellulose Public Affairs Manager Scott Mixon said Tuesday. Weather prompts mill closure at GP FoleyPlease see page 2 Please see page 3 Dogs punished for retaliating when attacked? County commissioners will consider making changes to an ordinance dening what constitutes a dangerous or aggressive dog, after being approached by a local property owner who had two of his dogs impounded after they retaliated when attacked on his property. Stoney Anderson appeared before the county at a Sept. 13 workshop to request the county amend its animal control ordinance to protect dogs that are provoked by other animals or humans. Anderson stated a neighbors dog came onto his property and attacked his dogs before the ght spilled back over the property line. County Animal Control was called, and during a hearing on the matter, Andersons dogs were classied as dangerous because there was no wiggle room in the ordinance. My dog was provoked, but the judge said there was no wording in the ordinance to allow for that, so his hands were tied, Anderson said. Verbiage needs to be added so that if a dog attacks another dog, it is seen as being provoked, Anderson said. According to the countys ordinance, an aggressive dog is dened as any dog that has been declared aggressive as a result of an investigation and determination from animal control because the dog: 1) Has severely injured or killed a domestic animal, fowl or livestock while off the owners property. 2) Has, when unprovoked, chased or approached a person upon the streets, sidewalks, or any public grounds in a menacing fashion or apparent attitude of attack, provided such actions are attested to in a sworn statement by one or more persons and dutifully investigated by animal control. A dangerous dog is dened as any dog that has been declared dangerous as a result of an investigation and determination from animal control because the dog: 1) Has aggressively bitten, attacked or endangered, or has inicted severe injury on a human being or caused death of a human begin on public or private property; or 2) Has more than once severely injured or killed a companion animal while off the owners property; or 3) Has been used primarily or in part for the purpose of dog ghting or is a dog trained for dog ghting. I have two large German shepherds. My dogs were on leashes, but when the ght spilled back over the property line, my dogs were then deemed dangerous or aggressive because there is nothing in your ordinance about them being provoked, Anderson said. His request seems to be reasonable, but have we talked to Animal Control about this? Commission Please see page 2 called for an eight-to-12-foot storm surge during high tides along the Taylor

GLAD TIDINGS By JAMES TAYLOR During the dark days of WWII, Elmer Bendiner, in his book, The Fall of Fortresses, wrote about a crew of a B-17 Flying Fortress that was making a bombing run over Nazi-occupied territory. During the raid the aircraft came under re from antiaircraft guns and 20mm rounds pierced the airframe, including the fuel tank. Upon realizing the fuel tank had been hit, the crew prepared for the worst, but to their amazement they safely returned to base and lived to y and ght another day. Early the next morning the pilot returned to his plane to survey the damage. He really wanted to retrieve one of those miraculous 20mm shells as a souvenir. As he inspected his plane, he discovered that 11 rounds had hit the fuel tank, making it truly miraculous that the plane had not exploded, as it would only take one shell to send the plane down. Those 11 shells were examined by ordnance experts who later reported that, to their amazement, none of the shells contained an explosive charge. Even more amazingly, they found that one shell contained a note that had been carefully rolled and tted into the shell. The piece of paper simply read: This is all we can do for you now. Somewhere in a munitions factory, someone, perhaps in a factory using slave labor, a worker waited until the watchful eye of his guard was turned away, then he put together as many harmless rounds as possible and slipped a note into one of them. It was his way of helping to defeat the Nazis. His seemingly small contribution made a huge impact in the war effort. You and I are daily engaged in a spiritual war. It goes on all around us, and we often ask ourselves, What good do my small efforts make? 1 Corinthians 15:58 says, Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord. No matter how small the action, it can make all the difference in the world. Even when it seems insignicant, our work for the Lord is never in vain. Galatians 6:10 says, Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.

Hurricane Michael is forecasted to be a category 3 at landfall with 120 mph winds, life-threatening storm surge and heavy rainfall. Duke Energy expects damage to its infrastructure which might result in extended power outages as the storm continues to strengthen and heads closer to Florida. The Florida governor has declared a state of emergency in advance of the hurricane. Hurricane Michael is intensifying and poses a signicant threat to the Florida Panhandle and will affect west central Florida, said Duke Energy Senior Meteorologist Max Thompson. Duke Energy customers in the projected path of this storm could see impacts and should make plans now to prepare their homes and families. We also ask our customers for their patience as outages are expected, and might take time to restore. In advance of the hurricane, Duke Energy is moving power utility crews and resources so they are prestaged and ready to help restore power as soon as it is safe to do so. In addition, line technicians and workers are checking equipment, supplies and inventories to ensure adequate materials are available to make repairs and restore power outages. Restoring power after a storm can be extremely challenging for utility repair crews, as travel and work conditions can be impacted by high winds and widespread ooding making repair work lengthy and difcult. Before bulk power can be restored, crews rst must assess the extent of damage which can take 24 hours or more to determine which crews, equipment and supplies are needed before repairs can begin.Linemen are ready to roll
