Gaddy told Perry Police Department (PPD) Ptl. Chad Cannon he had smoked some bad legal and did not remember doing anything else. Ofcers were rst dispatched to 907 West Duval Street in reference to a physical altercation involving a gun around 2:51 p.m. Wednesday. Once there, a woman told them a man (whom she identied as Johnny Gaddy) had jumped on her. Other witnesses at the scene told ofcers Gaddy was on top of her beating her. He then picked up a wooden chair and threatened to hit her with it, the report advised. Dispatch then radioed ofcers that reports had come in advising Gaddy had just stolen a vehicle from a 22-year-old Perry woman. A short time later, ofcers saw Gaddy walking down U.S. 19 and detained him while gathering further information. Cannon spoke with the woman who said she had taken her son to play with his cousins, who lived on Duval Street. She said Gaddy and several others were smoking legal and that Gaddy started acting out, Cannon reported. She said he picked up a chair and acted like he was going to hit her with it. The woman said at that point she picked up her son and was going to leave the area; Gaddy tried grabbing her son and asked her to take him home. The woman said she told him no because he was acting out. She said Gaddy then snatched her son out of her hands and jumped inside her car. The mother said she jumped inside the car as well, and tried to grab her son from Gaddy. She said Gaddy drove off in the vehicle at a high rate Please see page 3 Trac shis to temporary bridge District puts binder on land for new schoolWith Taylor County School District ofcials set to make their case in two weeks for state funding to construct a new Perry Primary School (PPS), the school board has entered into a contract to purchase a parcel of property adjacent to Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) for the proposed new school. The property in question, located directly north of TCES on Howard Street, is owned by The Clark Properties of Taylor County, LLC, and the approved selling price is $230,000. According to the contract, the deal to buy the approximately 31-acre property is contingent on the district receiving legislative funding. The district has put a $5,000 deposit into escrow as part of the deal. The school board unanimously approved the binder contract Tuesday night as well as a contract Jacobs given six months to move horses or rezone land Special delivery: 800 new computers In an order received by city ofcials this week, property owner Percy Jacobs was found to be in violation of land use regulations and given six months to have the horses on his land removed or apply for rezoning. The action by Special Magistrate Leenette McMillan-Fredriksson wraps up a series of complaints regarding horses within the city limits which started last year when former city attorney Mike Smith led a complaint against then city Code Enforcement Board representative Tonya Holton and her husband, Stacy. The action spawned a series of discussions by the city council regarding the land use regulation prohibiting horses on property not zoned agricultural; Jacobs was one of four additional landowners cited for having horses on land not properly zoned after City Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton lodged complaints against them. Former county administrator Jack Brown, Grifn Colson and Barbara Jackson were all cited for having horses on their property (each of their properties was zoned residential at the time the complaints were made). Brown and Jackson led, and received, a joint request to have the zoning on their adjoining properties changed; Colson and Holton both re-located their horses. Jacobs is the last to reach a resolution in his case after retaining private counsel. Relocation of ESE classes approved The Taylor County School District this week endorsed a plan to shift two exceptional student education (ESE) classes from Perry Primary School (PPS) to Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) to make room for what is being described as the largest incoming kindergarten class in recent memory. Dyal rst addressed the issue with school board members during a June 24 workshop, stating that the extra number of kindergarteners would require three additional teachers in the 2014-15 Please see page 3 Please see page 3Local students will have to wait an extra week for spring break this coming school year after the Taylor County School Board agreed to shift the district calendar to accommodate recently released state testing schedules. At their meeting Tuesday, school board members unanimously approved an amended 2014-15 school calendar, moving spring break from March 30 April 3, 2015, to April 6-10, 2015. According to Superintendent Paul Dyal, the Florida Department of Education has outlined a three-week window for elementary school students to take the new statewide exam being phased in this year, and under the original school calendar approved in April, spring break fell in the middle of this window. If the district did not change the calendar, students would have taken the exams during the week before spring break and then resumed the testing once they returned a week later, he said. With Easter Sunday falling on April 5, students will still be out of school on Friday, April 3, for Good Friday. Spring break moved to April 6-10

WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comNothing went to waste Nothing went to waste. Outgrown clothes. Empty jars. Leftover food and even a few things you might not consider edible. My grandmother found a way to reuse them all. My grandmother was a master of otherwise be thrown away. Around her house, there was an unwritten, but often heard rule about throwing things away: You dont throw things away that you could recycle into something usable. When we outgrew our clothes, my grandmother found creative ways to recycle the clothes before passing them down to one of the smaller children. She patched them up, cut pants into shorts, turned longsleeved shirts into short-sleeved ones, and on occasions pulled out the dye. Knowing the effort she put into recycling the clothes made us feel like we were putting on something new. Nothing went to waste. Why throw the jar away because youve eaten all the jelly? she would ask and then answer. There are a million things you can do with that jar. Those empty jelly and pickle jars were my grandmothers version of paper cups. We werent allowed to use them to serve guests or when guests were in the house. But if we were getting something to drink and planning to go outside with it, then these were our drinks on the go glasses because my grandmother didnt care if we brought them back. Nothing went to waste. There were few leftovers at my grandmothers house, which didnt come as a big surprise considering that for nearly two years, she had a small army (three of her children and 12 grands) living under her roof. What little leftovers there were, my uncles took to work for lunch the next day. My grandmother didnt let us waste food. what they knew we would eat. Most of the time, they were on the money. With the last bite, we would be full to the brim. But, if for some reason we didnt eat everything on our plate, my mother would go behind us and other hand, would only eat behind the children she considered clean eaters. She loved us all equally, but she was picky about who she ate behind. My grandmother even found ways to make the uneatable edible. Watermelon was a staple of our summer diet, which meant we accumulated a lot of watermelon rinds. My grandmother thought throwing all those rinds away was being wasteful, so she started saving some of the rinds to make candied watermelon rinds. We would help her wash and then carve the outside skin off the rind. Wash the rind again. Cut them into squares. Hover around the kitchen as the sweet smell of cinnamon and we waited for it to cool before we spooned the candied rinds into the empty jelly and pickle jars she had collected. Nothing went to waste. P&G men The late Dick Tuttle began his career in Taylor County with Procter & Gamble in 1954 after completing night school on the GI bill and earning his stationary engineering degree. He and his family moved from Kentucky as the P&G mill here was in early development. Tuttle worked as the shift foreman in the powerhouse. He is shown above (third from left) in the main powerhouse with fellow P&G employees. Tuttle is also featured in the bottom photo (top row, far right).

A-3 Perry News-Herald August 1-2, 2014 with architectural rm Clemons, Rutherford & Associates for the initial work required to provide information to the Special Facilities Committee of the Florida Department of Education (DOE). Local ofcials will make a presentation to the Special Facilities Committee at a hearing Friday, Aug. 15, to make their case for funding. Taylor is one of ve rural counties seeking assistance through the program this year. The others include Jefferson, Jackson, Liberty and Hamilton. The district has twice before received funding through the program to assist with building new schools: $8.5 million in 2001-02 for TCES (with $4.4 million in local funds), and $10.2 million in 199192 for Taylor County High School (with $3.9 million in local funds). The program requires districts to allocate revenues from their 1.5 mill capital improvement property tax for three years to a funded project. Of the ve counties applying for funding this year, Liberty County last received assistance through the program in 2008-09, Hamilton and Jefferson counties in 2002-03 and Taylor and Jackson in 200102. Dyal said the committee will rank the ve applications in terms of perception of need. Although the district will know its ranking that day, ofcials will not know for sure if they will receive the funding until next February when the governor releases his state budget. The current state budget includes $59.7 million in the special facilities account for seven projects, six in their rst year (of three) for funding and one in its second year. Using DOE cost estimates based on the number of students the school will house, the new primary school is projected to cost $17.1 million. In March, the district received word that the DOE site review team sent to PPS had certied the district as having a school in need. That certication allowed the district to go before the special facilities committee to request the funding in the 2015 scal year. of speed and told ofcers he nearly ran into two semitrucks. He began driving down the wrong side of the road and she said she became very scared, so she jumped out of the vehicle with her son in her arms. The woman said she walked to the nearest house and called police. Emergency medical services (EMS) treated her and her son for road rash burns on their legs and arms. Ofcers located the stolen vehicle in the middle of Dundee Streetwith the motor still running. Gaddy was placed under arrested and transported to the Taylor County Jail without incident. Taylor County Elementary School (shown above in the bottom right of the map) could have a neighbor if the school district is awarded state funding to build a new primary school. The district has entered into a binder contract to purchase the forested property directly north of the school and west of Howard Street. Ofcials will make their case to a state committee in two weeks, but will not know if the district will receive the funding assistance until next February.District makes case for funding Aug. 15 NEW SCHOOL Continued from page 1 SNATCHES CHILD Continued from page 1school year. TCES currently has several empty classrooms in its ESE area, according to Superintendent Paul Dyal said. Under the plan, two primary school ESE classes will move to the empty rooms at TCES. The students will be taught in their own classrooms and would not be mixed with the older TCES students. They may have some activities together, but instruction will be at their grade level, Dyal said. At their Tuesday meeting, school board members unanimously approved transferring two teachers and four aides from PPS to TCES as part of the shift.

If youre a wimpy gardener, summer in North Florida is not for you! Summer brings extreme heat, humidity and rainfall its not a good time for wimpy gardeners or wimpy plants. That sage advice comes from David W. Marshall, Leon County Extension Agent Emeritus, who has spoken about his books on gardening at meetings of the Friends of Taylor County Public Library. Marshall is also a friend to the Taylor County Master Gardeners who are taking a deep breath this summer before resuming a full year of activities including monthly columns for the newspaper. In their absence, Marshalls advice is perfect: for colorful foliage, plant copperleaf plant, variegated tapioca and tri-color hibiscus. For shade, use croton, coleus, Gold Mount duranta, variegated shell ginger, ti plant, caladiums and Elena elephant ear with vivid, chartreuse leaves. Colorful vine choices include mandevilla or allamanda. Trailing torenia, such as Summer Wave or Catalina, is a great low-growing bedding plant. But in areas with harsh afternoon sun, use vinca, narrow leaf or Profusion zinnias, portulaca, purslane, mealmpodium, beach sunower, lantana or pentas. For shade, try coleus or Sunpatiens, Marshall said. He reminds that July is peak for blueberries, gs and pears. Pick them early each day to beat the birds and squirrels. And remember,Marshall said, gs will sour on the tree if rains are frequent. If you want new vines and fruit trees, Marshall recommends that you plant them now. If youre a vegetable gardener, Marshall recommends that you solarize your garden for treatment for nematodes and other soil pests once your harvests end. Many spring-planted vegetables, such as tomatoes, are in decline. Okra, eggplant, peppers, lima bean, southern peas and watermelons may still be producing. When they nish, move all the plant debris, till the garden area thoroughly, moisten the soil well and cover with clear plastic lm. Seal the edges with soil. Leave the cover on for six weeks, Marshall recommends, but with a disclaimer. This doesnt work well during cloudy, rainy weather. He reminds caution since this is mosquito season, too. Use repellent and change the water in birdbaths frequently. Aggressively search out breeding sites where water accumulates to reduce the mosquitoes. He recommends that you mow lawns at least weekly, no lower than 1 inches for centipede or 3 inches for St. Augustine. Dont fertilize grass during the summer, except newly planted areas. Watch for gray leaf fungus in shaded areas of St. Augustine lawns and chinch bug patches in sunny areas. Chinch bugs can be spot treated if caught early. During wet summers, spittlebugs can be a problem in centipede lawns. Enjoy the crepe myrtles! For more information on choices which are best suited as shrubs or taller varieties, please visit Even though some owers are in decline, tropicals offer summertime excitement, Marshall said. He recommends yellowbells or yellow elder, rebush, angels trumpet, swamp hibiscus, Turks cap, powderpuff plant, thryallis and parakeet owers. Millinor Family Reunion Sat. at Garden Club The Millinor Family Reunion will be held on Saturday, Aug. 2, at the Perry Garden Club starting at 11 a.m. Family members are asked to bring a covered dish, dessert and a beverage.
