Taylor County deputy honored for his actions


Taylor County Sheriff's Deputy Robert Lundy, left, is greeted by Sen. Miguel Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, on the floor of the Senate on Friday. The deputy was being honored for heroism. Earl Edward Clague Jr., an employee of Timberland Ford in Perry, crashed a car into the dealership on Feb. 5, got out, and opened fire. Lundy, who was off duty, was having his car serviced at the time. He opened fire, killing Clague. Lundy and two civilians were also hit in the exchange of bullets, but Lundy sustained the most serious injuries. He spent several weeks in a coma but has been steadily recovering and today gets around with the help of a walker.
