The U.S. Department of Labors Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited GLF Construction Corp. for 14 safety violations and is proposing $72,000 in penalties following its investigation of the Jan. 16 death of David Kimberl at the construction site of the new Aucilla River bridge on U.S. 98. Kimberl, 18, was crushed to death when a bridge panel, weighing nearly 1,800 pounds, fell on him while he was dismantling a section of the old Aucilla River bridge. Kimberl had been on the job for one week and had never worked in bridge construction. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) contracted with GLF Construction for the project, which has since been completed. This tragedy could have been prevented if the employer followed proper safety procedures to secure the bridge panels from falling over, said Brian Sturtecky, OSHAs area director in Jacksonville. This young man didnt even earn his rst paycheck from GLF Construction when he paid the ultimate price of working on a mismanaged project. The only difference between a safe act and an unsafe act depends on the level of importance an employer places on doing what is right. The 14 serious violations include the employers failure to provide instruction to recognize and avoid unsafe conditions associated with bridge panels falling over if they were not properly secured; failing to provide fall protection for employees working A 68-year-old Perry man faces a felony charge for animal cruelty after tying two dogs to the back bumper of his truck and taking them for a run. According to reports, at some point, one of the dogs, a chocolate Lab mix, evidently fell and was then dragged behind the vehicle for an unknown distance. The dog sustained deep, multiple road rash burns all over his entire body, including his face, and all four paw pads were severely abraded. The second dog, a Collie mix, apparently was not dragged behind the vehicle but sustained wounds to all four of her paws as well. Emory E. Jenkins was arrested at his home on South Givens Street Sunday morning, June 15, and charged with one count of animal cruelty. He posted bond and was released the next day. Perry Police Department Ptl. Chad Cannon was dispatched to the area of Givens Street around 9:30 Sunday morning in reference to a vehicle dragging a dog behind it. Cannon was advised that the vehicle was a 1999 white Chevrolet truck and was also given the trucks tag number.

WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comBreaking News Tales of hanging chads and ballot recounts sealed the deal, but it was a Bronco chase and a court arraignment that set my journalism career on a different course. I saw the change coming. It was 20 years ago and everything was about to change. The way we watched television. What we watched on television. And, more than anything else, what we deemed news. I had just moved back to Gainesville to begin studying journalism at the University of Florida when, on June 20, 1994, famed (now infamous) football star, O.J. Simpson was arraigned for the murder of his former wife, Nicole BrownSimpson, and Ronald Goldman. The media spectacle was already in full gear by the time Simpson was arraigned. Who can forget Simpsons now-famous ride with a gun to his head in the back of a white Bronco three days before the arraignment? The moment Brown-Simpsons and Goldmans bodies were discovered on the front walkway of her condominium the media descended on the tragedy, instigating the volatile marriage of our legal system and television. Before returning to the UF, I worked as a reporter for the local newspapers and for radio station WPRY. During that time, I covered city council, county commission and school board meetings. I covered the police and crime beat. And, I covered breaking news. I loved my reporting jobs so much that I decided to return to college and get a degree in journalism. I wanted to be a breaking news reporter. That all changed when Simpson was arrested and charged with the murder of his former wife and Goldman. It was nearly impossible to escape coverage of the Simpson Murder Trail, which some news analysts declared as the Trial of the Century. There was 24-hour television coverage. Daily newspapers around the country front pages with recaps and analysis of the case and trial. Coverage of the trial even extended into the classrooms. The Simpson Trial was a central topic in all of my journalism classes. In the course, History of Journalism, we of the trial and its future impact on journalism. In my journalism ethics course, we discussed issues related to the trial, televisions in the courtroom, and the changing role of journalists when it comes to covering crimes and the legal system. In my reporting class, we practiced our hand at trying to beat the professional journalists covering the story and our classmates to the next big scoop. The case and trial even made it into my statistics, advertising and economics classes. I realized that covering breaking news in my small hometown was vastly different than covering breaking news on a big city, state or national stage. By the time the trial concluded in October 1995, I was so fed up with the news coverage that I ditched the desire to be a news reporter and focused on features and lifestyle reporting, which focuses on people stories. When I was offered an internship at CBS News, I magazine show, like 60 Minutes, instead of a daily newscast. When I returned to Gainesville and UF, I was offered a position at the Gainesville Sun Again, business writing position. A few years later, I did end up covering breaking news as the lead producer for WTXL-ABC Channel 27 in Tallahassee. Thats when tales of hanging chads and May it rest in peace. Hello summer! Nothing says summer like a refreshing dip in a pool and for Perry residents in the 1940s, that pool also included a two-story, screened-in clubhouse complete with pool tables. The former city pool was located adjacent to the Duck Pond. Smile for the camera... Lionel Louque. The photo is from a collection recently shared on the Taylor County Historical


with Holton because of pending lawsuits, referred the question to Perry Police Department Capt. Jamie Cruse. The true way to nd out whats happening here is to have an outside agency come in and investigate, which would mean opening up everybodys phone records. I have seen allegations that weve (the police department) been involved (in making the calls) so we would remove ourselves from the investigation. I know there are ways to alter phone numbers that appear on your caller I.D. Im not saying that is it, what Im saying is we dont know and the only way to know is to conduct that investigation. It is up to the council to have an agency brought in here to do this. I can assure council that nobody under the direction of anybody that works for me or anybody else outside is making any calls to anybody, Brown said. We have checked and basically the only people at city hall, on our property, after normal business hours is police and re. We have checked and the calls made from their (phones) would not show this number (city halls 584-7161). We have changed the access codes to city hall recently just to make sure nobody else is coming in without our knowledge. But as Jamie alluded to, it is very, very easythanks to free apps available for your phones for anybody to put a false number on what or whos calling or putting your own phone a different number. I can assure you there is no direction from anybody at city hall to do this. I did ask the phone company if they would give us records of our outgoing calls and they said they could not do that without an order from a court or law enforcement, Brown said. It is my belief there is mischief involved and it is not originating within the city, Councilman Don Cook said. I just wanted it on the record. This is not a call with an open line. It sounds like a fax machine every time. It eats up my data in a matter of minutes, Holton said. It eats your data? City Attorney Ray Curtis asked. It drains my battery and is running my data, Holton replied. And youve seen that reected on your phone bill? Curtis said. I see it right before my eyes. Have you requested a phone bill that shows 7161 is where the calls are being made from? What we have is a picture of your screen. Do you also have a copy of your billing statement? Curtis said. No but I can get one. Id be glad to do that, Holton said. Cruse cautioned that if the city were to request such a document, it should be a certied copy from the carrier. Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton then asked Brown if he had looked into the allegations and Brown said he had. I think that if any elected council member believes city staff would be instructed to do this kind of thing, that council member should be ashamed of himself or herself. It is below the dignity of any council member or our management of the city. I feel if it is happening, it is totally unrelated to anybody internal to the city, Cook said. Are you thinking Im trying to say someone at the city is doing it? Hampton asked. I am just asking if he investigated. I dont see anything wrong with that. Let us have condence of the good intentions and professionalism of our staff, Cook said. I do, Hampton replied. The meeting then moved forward without further discussion on the issue. As of presstime Tuesday, the PPD had not received any complaints from any citizen regarding alleged phone harassment. If this is occurring to any citizenthen a thorough investigation needs to be conducted. Nobody needs to be harassed, Cruse said.A-3 Perry News-Herald June 20-21, 2014 Cannon spotted the vehicle parked on the street. He made contact with the driver, who identied himself as Jenkins. Jenkins told the ofcer he tied the two dogs to a lease and was trying to take them for a run. Cannon reported that Jenkins further stated that while he was driving someone stopped him and told him that he was dragging one of his dogs behind his vehicle. Jenkins said he stopped and put the chocolate Lab inside his truck, but left the Collie tied to the leash. He also told the ofcer he drove several miles with the dogs tied to the leash and crossed several major highways, with his route taking him to Tidewater and then back to his residence on Givens Street. The leash that Jenkins had both dogs tied to was approximately three feet long. He also could not see the dogs behind the vehicle that he was driving. Jenkins advised me that he did not tie a longer leash to the dogs because he did not want them to get run over by another vehicle. I noticed blood on the bumper of the vehicle and also in the back seat where Jenkins put the chocolate Lab. The chocolate Lab also had road rash in several places and the bottoms of the dogs feet were bleeding, Cannon reported. An ofcer from Taylor County Animal Control was called to the scene and took both dogs into custody. Both dogs have been treated by a local vet; the chocolate Lab is receiving daily medical care by animal control staff to ght infection, Animal Control Coordinator Carrie Williams said. She also noted that the department already has rescue lined up for the dogs if the courts grant our petition for custody. The chocolate Lab is six to nine years old. The younger Collie is thought to be two to three years old. near the edge of a trestle; not providing training for workers to recognize struckby hazards while working around cranes; allowing materials to be loaded by a person who was not a qualied rigger and not removing several synthetic web slings from service that were punctured, cut and torn. A serious violation occurs when there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard about which the employer knew or should have known, ofcials said. The company has 15 business days from receipt of the citations and proposed penalties to comply, request a conference with OSHAs area director or contest the ndings before the independent Occupational Safety & Health Review Commission. In March, Kimberls parents announced their intention to le a $10 million lawsuit against the GLF Construction and FDOT.

A-6 Perry News-Herald June 20-21, 2014 Religion New Home begins V.B.S.; 3 churches present sports camp By SARAH HALL Congratulations 2014 graduates: Alexis Flowers, Imoni Collins and Marjani Collins. Prayers sought Special prayers for the Rev. Robert Butler, pastor of Little St. John; Jabari Ford, surgery; Brenda Swain, Gainesville; the Rev. Melvin Bell and Mabel Hawkins, TMH; Lelia Tina Rhines, DMH; Bonnie Simmons, home; Nobie Roberts and Bruce McGriff. In bereavement, remember the families of the late Inez Swift Greene, the late Florence Jenness, the late Charles Smith Jr. of Gainesville (son-in-law to Eartha Mae White). Prayer retreat The First Bethlehem Womens Auxilary is sponsoring its Annual Prayer Retreat Saturday, June 21. The Prayer Retreat will be held at the Baptist Student center located on the campus of Florida A&M University. The fee for the workshop is $15 which includes lunch. Minister Palmyra V. Williams is Prayer Retreat Committee Secretary; Evangelist Miner A Brookins is president; and the Rev. Isaac Manning will serve as moderator. Did you know.... The church is made up of many different kinds of people--people with different cultures, from different environments and with differing personalities. It is through worship, prayer, fellowship and study together that we learn to practice (apply what weve learned) what the Bible teaches us. Believers learn that it takes all of us to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. We all have diverse levels of understanding and abilities. We communicate in different ways. Some of us express ourselves to many and others only to ourselves. Yet each person brings value and knowledge in his or her own way. Our scripture (Ephesians 4:25-32) tells us how to treat others, how to respect others and the importance of fellowshipping and being honest with others. Paul said, Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. It is through the link of fellowship that we can encourage others, pray for and lift each other up with kind words and small deeds. With this we learn that we all need each other to make our lives better. Ordination SundayThe New Brooklyn Church Family and Pastor Donald L. McBride extends an invitation to the community to attend the ordination services for Deacon George Clayton who has accepted the call from the Lord into the ministry.

A-10 Perry News-Herald June 20-21, 2014 On Friday, May 23, County Judge Bill Blue, along with representatives from the Florida Guardian Ad Litem and the Partnership for Strong Families met with representatives of the Steinhatchee Community Center Board and secured permission to use the Steinhatchee Community Center as the specic supervised visitation site for dependency cases in Steinhatchee. Steinhatchee parents in dependency proceedings needed a designated location to visit their children regardless of the weather, and volunteers who supervise the visitation needed an assigned location that they knew would be available for purposes of facilitating the visitation, Blue explained. Parents in dependency proceedings often have their children taken away temporarily and placed with relatives or foster parents when the parents are accused of abusing, neglecting or abandoning their children. In most of these cases, the parents enter into a case plan with the Department of Children and Families wherein the parents agree to perform certain tasks and take certain classes designed to help the parents better protect their children. While the parents are working on the plan and tasks, they are permitted to have visitation with their children. Initially, the visits are supervised by someone who observes all physical and verbal interactions between the parent and child. The use of the Steinhatchee Community Center for supervised visitation represents another public-private partnership in Steinhatchee, where the residents of that community have a tradition of working with government to provide services and facilities to their community at little to no cost. The use of this facility adds no costs to anyone, not the courts, the Florida Guardian Ad Litem Program, the Partnership for Strong Families, or the Department of Children and Families. I wish to publicly acknowledge and thank Ann Boy, Rhoda Moehring and Liana Chapman of the Steinhatchee Community Center, Vallerie Freeman of the Partnership for Strong Families, and Linda Peacock from the Florida Guardian Ad Litem Program for their efforts in making this visitation center a reality. Those of us who work in the dependency court system know that the bond between parent and child is important, and that bond can only continue and blossom if the parent has time with the child. By having a designated visitation center, we are making it easier for the professionals in the dependency court system to ensure that a parent gets visitation with his or her child.

Ken Detzner, Secretary of State, presided over the swearing-in ceremony. The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) presented Taylor County Commissioner Malcolm V. Page with the Advanced County Commissioner (ACC) designation following his completion of a comprehensive study program developed by the association. Page received the designation along with 12 other county commissioners during an awards ceremony held at the FAC annual conference in Orange County. He is the third seated county commissioner to earn the designation; commissioners Pat Patterson and Pam Feagle are both graduates of the program. I am honored to receive this certication. The program was hard work, but I learned many lessons that I will bring to our county to help improve the services we provide to our residents, Page said. Launched by FAC in 2006, the education program, The Florida Forum for County Leaders, is an advanced leadership program designed for graduates of the Certied County Commissioners (CCC) program. This year, the program was held in Alachua County and saw 13 commissioners graduate in June with a total of 145 graduating since its inception. This certication allows our citizen electorate to become experts in county government improving their communities, said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley. Through FACs education programs we are able to teach commissioners how to advance their policies through the complexities of government bureaucracies. The ACC program is organized as a series of three seminars, with 27 hours of course work. The course content focuses on leading within Floridas counties. Participating commissioners must commit to fully participate in all three seminars in order to graduate. Seminars include: Tough Policy Choices in Florida During Tumultuous Times; Leading Your Communities During Turbulent Times; and, Understanding and Working with Stakeholders and County Decision Makers during these Turbulent Times. The University of Florida/IFAS Extension has sponsored this program for the last six years in Alachua County.
