Serving the Tree Capital of the South Since 1963 50 One Section 55th year, No. 44 Wednesday October 31, 2018 Trunk or Treat TONIGHT in DOWNTOWN PERRY 6-8 p.m. 2 men arrested in Parks death By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI Managing Editor A mother knows. She knows when her child is well, and she knows when something is wrong. When Derek Parks didnt text or call his mother after she left him a message on July 17 (that his grandfather had suffered a stroke), she knew something bad had happened. It wasnt a week, it wasnt a month, it was a day I knew he was either somewhere out of his mind or he was gone, Sherry Mims Brown said. But, she had no way of knowing the nightmarish turn of events that led to her sons death. Or that it would be 59 endless days of waiting before his body would be found and even longer before justice would In a complaint led with the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR), a former employee of AMTEC Less-Lethal (ALS) claims she was red in retaliation for complaining about sexual harrassment, in addition to alleging she warned supervisors of unsafe working conditions months before a Sept. 14 explosion that later claimed the lives of two fellow employees. In the Oct. 16 complaint led with the FCHR the state agency tasked by the Florida Legislature with addressing discrimination issues -former ALS employee Jackie Hendry claims she was terminated after objecting to repeated sexual harassment by her supervisor at the local manufacturing and training facility. The complaint states Hendry worked as an administrative assistant to the production manager at the plant located on Providence Road just north of Perry off Highway 19 from Aug. 24, 2013 until her wrongful termination on Aug. 10, 2018. In approximately February 2018, the complaint alleges the ALS quality contol manager and head of safety Vernon Wakeeld (a black male) began to sexually harass Hendry, beginning with asking Hendry whether she would consider having sex with a black man, the FCHR complaint states. Hendry immediately advised Mr. Wakeeld that his sexual advances were unwelcome, and that her sex life was none of his business, Hendry claims in her complaint. Mr. Wakeeld also asked two of the respondents other female employees the same question. Rather than modify his behavior to conform with legal and societal norms, Wakeeld increased his unlawful sexual harassment by creating a sexually charged work environment. When Hendry complained to Wakeeld and another employee, she claims they ostracized her by announcing her presence when she entered a room and instructed the Please see page 2 Sexual harassment, retaliation: Former ALS worker lodges complaints Please see page 4D-SNAP sites will assist individuals and families recovering from Hurricane Michael The Department of Children and Families (DCF), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), has initiated the federal Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) in Taylor County and 11 other Florida counties to assist communities impacted by Hurricane Michael. DCF anticipates serving approximately 130,000 families through the federal D-SNAP program as a result of Hurricane Michael. DCF served more than 1.2 million households for Hurricane Irma disaster food assistance last year. Following DCFs request, the federal government has granted permission to conduct phone applications for those individuals in 12 Florida counties who may not be able to attend the inperson events. Families in these counties, and those displaced as a result of the storm, are strongly encouraged to preregister and take advantage of the phone application option. DCF will host D-SNAP events in three phases, based on the order in which they were declared eligible for Individual Assistance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA): Taylor County D-SNAP Information Pre-Registration Window: Friday, October 26 Sunday, Nov. 4, at www.

At the close of early voting Monday we had a total of 1,098 voters cast ballots early, which sounds pretty good, but I know Taylor County voters can do better, Southerland said. Your Supervisor of Elections has set a goal, and we would like to see that number increase to 2,400 early voters by Saturday, Nov. 3, Southerland added.

A-8 Taco Times October 31, 2018 Religion Pisgah Baptist Church will celebrate its 100th Homecoming this Sunday, with morning services beginning at 10:30 a.m. The Rev. Jack Anderson will be the guest speaker and special music will be provided by Daybreak. Dinner on the grounds will follow. In honor of this centennial landmark, church members, assisted by Peggy Hunter, have gathered the following history of the church, which traces its roots to the summer of 1918: In the summer of 1918, a two-week revival was held in an old store building belonging to John Aman. Brother Ansel Parker acted as moderator and the evangelist was Brother Lloyd from Live Oak. The store was located at the intersection of State Road (1968 map) S-361 & S-359, (across from where Langfords Skating Rink was later). Services were held twice daily. People, as a rule, did not hold public jobs; consequently, they were able to attend morning services. At this time, Pisgah Baptist Church was constituted. The ceremony took place in John Amans yard (Harrison Blues home) with approximately 20 people attending. This service was not held at the store because lightning had struck Bro. Lloyd and he was unable to get around very well. However, due to having the service at Amans home, Bro. Lloyd was able to sit on the porch and participate. Chairs were put in the yard and people sat on the porch or stood. A few of those in attendance were: Bro. Ansel Parker, Bro. Lloyd, Janie (Aman) Roberts, Henry Roberts, Clara Roberts, Mr. and Mrs. Abner Parker, John Aman, Charlie Aman, Shellie (Parker) Rutherford and Dalton Parker. Members from San Pedro, Mt. Gilead, Mosley Hall, and the First Baptist were also present. Doubtless there were others. Thus, Pisgah Baptist Church was constituted with Bro. Ansel Parker the rst pastor. The dedication sermon was preached by Bro. Jim Vann in the old store. The number of members at this time was not known. Services were held in the store. A pump organ was used. There were no pews. The people sat on the counter tops or stood around the store. In 1919, money had been collected for a church building. The members were ready to build, but it was undecided where to build. After a period of time, & lengthy discussions, it was decided that A. C. Parker would locate property for the building. J.P. Buddy Woods was contacted and he agreed to deed approximately one-half acre to the church, (the property located south of State Road S-361 and east of U.S. Highway 19, approximately four miles north of the City of Perry) with the provision should the church not function as such, the land would revert to him. The church did not agree to this and once again Woods was contacted. He agreed to give the church a clear title. The rst actual legal document was led Dec. 1, 1921 (deed book 17, page 70). The deacons in 1919 were John Aman and Abner Parker. The men of the community erected a one-room frame building and even though they were not all members they labored together for this worthy cause. A.C. Parker was considered to be the foreman. The wooden pews were also built at this time. The construction time was approximately one month and the structure faced east and west. From the 1919 Associational Minutes, the following data was obtained: Value of building: $100 Pastors annual salary: $47.30 Membership: 40 Met one Sunday a month Pastor: Bro. Ansel Parker In 1927, the rst report of contribution to the Cooperative Program was reported, in the amount of $5. (In later years the church tithed to the Co-operative Program, but after budgets began to be established this percentage varied.) There were no records available from 1928-1930. The church baptized in Rocky Creek at several different places, according to the water level. There was a location at the Rise, known as the Will Lundy wash hole. For years and years the church service was held at Pisgah Church only one Sunday a month. The entire community visited each others church, regardless of their denomination. This was well and good due to the fact transportation was not modernized at this time (speed and comfort). This also gave everyone the opportunity to visit with one another since people were not able to just jump into their car and drive across town. The monthly schedule was as follows: 1st Sunday Pisgah Missionary Baptist 2nd SundayNew Life Methodist 3rd SundayShiloh Primitive Baptist 4th SundayMt. Carmel Free Will Baptist 5th SundayAll met at a designated church The rst Sunday School was instituted in the 1920s. In September 1935, the church was blown from its foundation by the Storm, demolishing it to the extent that it had to be rebuilt. The contents (namely the organ and church records) were ruined. But this was not to be the end of Pisgah Baptist Church. Again members of the community, as well as the church, began to reconstruct the church building on almost the exact site. It was rebuilt facing north and south. Materials that could be salvaged from the original building were used and the remaining needs furnished to complete the rebuilding. Some of the people instrumental in the reconstruction were: John Newell, Jim Lundy, Asa McLeod, O.A. Simmons, Tom Lundy, Edgar Courtney, Henry Collins, W.D. Powell, Omer Grubbs, Charlie Aman and Dan Lundy. Without a doubt, many more helped, but these were a few that were recalled to memory. Pisgah Baptist Church asked that Bro. Felix Parker be ordained as a minister of the gospel by San Pedro Baptist Church in 1943. In 1946, services were held the rst and third Sundays of every month. This was the rst record of services being held more than once a month. Pisgah Baptist Church asked Foley Baptist Church for ordination of Bro. C.T. Hall in March 1948. The Training Union was organized in 1948. The Training Union report rst appeared in the 1950 Associational Minutes, showing an enrollment of 75 and an average attendance of 55 for the year.
