WHITE firstname.lastname@example.orgHappy Mothers Day My mother was single, but my brothers and I never lived in a single-parent home. We mostly resided with my grandparents, so we were part of a three-parent household. But even when my mother moved out and forced us (mainly my two younger brothers) to live between her place and our grandparents house, she still had to share parenting duties with them. Until I was nine, we--my mother and her three sons--lived with my grandparents, which meant that, although my mother was my mother, she was not Momma. That title and the responsibilities that came with it belonged to my grandmother. When my mother moved out, my grandparents midnight-to-morning job as security guard and ofce cleaner at Martin Electronics forced me and my brothers to live between the two houses. Every night, my grandparents dropped us off in our pajamas and tucked us in bed at my mothers then went to work. Early the next morning, they picked us up, took us home, and then we got dressed and went to school. My mother never complained about having to share parenting duties. In fact, she welcomed the assistance because it allowed her to be more of a big sister and best friend to her sons. My brothers and I took advantage of this arrangement quite often. It didnt take us long to realize that, because our mother was being a sister and friend, she would sometimes abandon us. When we wanted to go somewhere or do something that we knew our grandmother wouldnt approve of, we would bypass our grandmother and ask our mother. Well, go ahead, my mother would tell us. But if Momma nds out, you better not tell her I said you can go. If you do, Im gonna tell her the truth and then whip your behind for lying on me. This was important for us to know because if our grandmother did nd out, her rst question was sure to be, Lois, did you know they were going? No, maam, my mother would respond with her version of the truth. So, you didnt tell them they could go? my grandmother would continue her inquiry. Moving out of my grandmothers sight, my mother would cut her eyes at us in a threatening manner then answer, No, maam. Thats all I need to know. In my mothers defense, what happened next hurt her as much as it hurt us. Well, at least thats what she claimed. When I or my brothers got in trouble at school, the rst thing we did was tell the principal or dean to call our mothers other phone number which was at her house instead of the primary number which belonged to our grandmother. Then, unlike other kids our age, we would jump off the bus and rush home to tell our mother in case she missed the call. Lois, did the school call you? wed burst through the door asking. If she said yes, we breathed a sigh of relief. If she said no, we grabbed the phone and told her to call the school before they called you-know-who. Its too late. The school already called her, my mother would say if she looked out the window and saw my grandmother marching across the street toward her house. And with that, my mother would retreat to her bedroom, lock the door, and once again abandon her children. We loved her anyway. Happy Mothers Day.

A-3 Perry News-Herald May 9-10, 2014 much more than I expected. We had a mail call while we were on the plane going up and I had a whole bunch of letters from my children and grandchildren, as well as cards and letters from people I didnt know thanking me for my service. Then, when we arrived in D.C., they hosed the plane down with water, what they call a water shed. It was a sight to look out and see those big retrucks spraying water on the plane. The trip included a tour of all the war monuments in Washington as well as a trip to Arlington National Cemetery. That place is so big you just look out over the elds and it keeps going and going and going. Young rst heard about the trip last year and applied. However, that rst trip was all lled up, so they said I had to wait until the next one. That was ne. I told Hope about it and she got all the paperwork and took care of all the correspondence. When it came time to choose a chaperone for the trip, Young said he knew who it would be. From the day she was born, weve been buddies, he said of Lynn. His trip to the World War II memorial reminded me of a lot of things I saw during the war. It also reminded me of the good friends Id made. If someone hasnt been to the memorial, they need to go. But as overwhelming as the trip itself was, Young said the homecoming the group received back in Tallahassee was equally as amazing. Everybody from the governor to the senator was there. We didnt have that kind of homecoming when we returned home from the war. Veterans were presented with commemorative medallions during the welcome home ceremony as well as certicates and gifts from a host of sources, including various veterans organizations and the City of Tallahassee. For now, all the keepsakes proudly ll Youngs dining room table and each time he passes by, he gets a reminder of a nations thanks. TRIP OF LIFETIME Continued from page 1 Gov.

A-4 Perry News-Herald May 9-10, 2014 Living TCES salutes top collectors, urges businesses to help tooAs the Box Tops coordinator for Taylor County Elementary School, Donna Faircloth reminds parents that collecting Box Tops is an easy way to get involved in your childs education. Just by purchasing Box Tops products, clipping the coupons and sending them to school, we earn cash to purchase necessary educational supplies. This year, the school has earned $1313.90. The schools overall total, through the program is $12,728, which can make a real difference, Faircloth reminds. All year long, we collect Box Tops, found on thousands of products from cereal to ofce supplies. Each Box Top is worth 10. When students, families, schools and communities work together to collect Box Tops and send them in, the money adds up fast, Faircloth said. We can earn even more cash with your help. She reminds that Box Tops are on lots of products companies are probably using, like Avery binders, Boise paper, Scott paper towels and bath tissue, and Ziploc brand storage bags. Would you be willing to save Box Tops from packages for us? Well make it easy: well provide a collection box, stop by frequently to pick up the packages and clip the Box Tops ourselves. All you need to do is drop the packages in the box, Faircloth said, thanking businesses, in advance, for considering this opportunity. (Left to right) Blane Lytle was the top collector of Box Tops for the third grade at Taylor County Elementary School while Kadence Pittman gathered the most in fourth grade and Trista Knowles collected the most Centennial Celebration for Perry Womans Club Nothing to do?

In February, the school board agreed to use $110,000 in state funds, distributed to the district this school year to expand career technical education (CTE) programs, for the project, which at that time was estimated at $380,000.

To make up the difference, the district took the additional money out of its capital outlay fund.

A one-way ride is 50. The stops include: Super Wash (1403 Hwy. 98 W.), Tidewater Apartments, Jerkins Community Center, Exxon Station (1203 Byron Butler Pkwy.), Woodridge Apartments, Family Dollar, Kmart, Winn-Dixie, Southern Villas, Pineview Apartments, Stonegate Apartments, Taylor Technical Institute, BP Station (South Byron Butler Parkway), Dollar General, Walmart, Perry Post Ofce, Taylor County Courthouse, Taylor County Public Library, Even Start, Taylor County Health Department, Premier Medical, Taylor County Senior Center and Doctors Memorial Hospital. The shuttle makes the loop in one hour and repeats the route throughout the day, except from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. According to Cox, of the 18,003 people who utilized the in-town shuttle, 4,790 traveled to medical appointments, 2,913 traveled to work, 4,788 traveled for education and 5,512 for shopping.

The cost of the rides is pro-rated based on income, Cox said. To set up an appointment, call Big Bend Transit at 584-5566.

There is no charge for the ride, but those wishing to utilize the service must reserve a seat by 12 noon on the Monday before by calling Cox at 838-3553. She said the program averaged 80 riders per month and almost always had a full transport.
