FDOT reveals 5-year plan By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — Washington and Holmes Counties were two of many counties discussed as the Florida Department of Transportation had its annual meeting on the tentative work program for fiscal years 2015-19. The meeting was Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the FDOT District 3 office in Chipley.

“We’re gathered here today to review the five-year work plan for fiscal years 2015-2019, which remains tentative until July 15,” said Jacqueline Paramore, statewide Title VI administrator for FDOT. “The budget remains at $3 billion, just like last year, and 2017 has an enormous spike and that is related to the replacement of the Pensacola Bay Bridge, also known as the three-mile bridge. This project will cost $500 million to replace, which goes to show that one project can

make a significant change.” Paramore reviewed the summary of changes made recently to Holmes County’s plans. “For Holmes County, there are a lot of bridge replacement projects underway,” Paramore said. Those listed for bridge replacement are Riddick Mill Road over Unnamed Branch Bridge, Jones Loop over Pine Log Creek Bridge, Whitaker Road over Lighter Snag Creek Bridge, Hicks Road over West Pittman Creek Bridge, Valee Road over

There is also a bridge rehabilitation scheduled for State Road 20 over Lafayette Creek Bridge. “There will be a Project Development and Environmental study of State Road 79 from State Road 8 to the Alabama line,” Paramore said. “For those of you who are local you are aware of Project 79, where

BONIFAY — Attorney Brandon Young came before the Bonifay City Council during Monday’s meeting as legal representative of a subdivision that might be developed on Griffith Circle in Bonifay. “As a representative, I would like to request the requirements needed to present the plat for approval,” Young said. Tony Syfrett with Southeastern Surveying and Mapping Corporation came before the council during their Nov. 25 meeting with designs for a subdivision on Griffith Circle off of State Road 79 in Bonifay, saying he was told the subdivision was approved of in 2008. Grant Writer Bob Jones said the council needed some clarification of what was approved in 2008 before they could approve of anything and move on, which after much discussion was approved to be tabled until further review

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Bonifay Fire and Rescue and Holmes County Emergency Management Services teamed up this year for the second annual presentation of $2,000 to the Toys for Tots fundraiser arranged though Bonifay Elementary School’s Christmas Angel Program on Dec. 5 at BES. “We’ve been doing little fundraisers here and there for our local children for many years, and because it wasn’t very organized and some issues with discrepancies, we partnered with Bonifay Elementary School two years ago,” said Bonifay Fire Chief Shay McCormick. “They have a better grasp at what children need, and we’re just

happy to help.” This is the first year with the Holmes County EMS helping raise funds, and both emergency groups stood at the intersection of State Road 90 and State Road 79/Waukesha Street, raising the $2,000 with a boot drive. “It was pretty emotional because we’d have people in Bentleys just drive on by, and then we’d have families in vans scrapping for change and giving all they can,” McCormick said. “We’ve been touched by the generosity and kindness of our own.” Laura Sims of BES’ guidance department said the money would be used to help 70 children. “The generosity of those who gave and the hard work from our lo-

Young said the preliminary plot was approved of in 2008, and construction had started and roads were paved; however, because of the economy, the company fell apart and the project “fell by the wayside.” “Everything was done to state standards,” Young said. “The roads were at Department of Transportation standards, there’s a holding pond, the water lines have been pressure tested and there are no lots less than half an acre just in case they want septic there.” City Attorney Lucas Taylor said several steps needed to be completed before a plat could be presented to the council. “There were a few things missing,” Taylor said. “For instance, there is a spot for certification verification to

Ga., and later the comptroller, programmer and chief information officer at the Naval Aviation Depot in Pensacola, before being hand-picked for his dream job working with the newly created AFSOC headquarters in 1990. “If you’re a financial manager, why would you want to be anything other than a comptroller for special ops?” he asked, smiling. “When I got here, I was the happiest person to ever come through the gates. I just committed to be the best teammate and do the most I could for the command.” That commitment and positive attitude continued to shape not only his personal development and career, but the culture of the AFSOC financial management office and the development of those who worked with him. “He always challenged us to do our best, to do more and try

to be a better person every day,” said Annette Beard, AFSOC deputy director of financial management, who started working with Rone in 1991. Under his mentorship, 65 percent of his team have completed their master’s degrees, 70 percent have completed professional military education, 74 percent have earned professional certifications, and six have gone on to become major command-level comptrollers or deputy comptrollers themselves. But the Bonifay native does not take credit for their successes, or the success of his organization, which has won the U.S. Special Operations Command Outstanding Financial Management Organization Award every year for the last decade. “Everybody feels like they’re part of the team, and we’re a very successful team,” he said. “But is

it me? No, it’s the team.” In Rone’s 23 years with AFSOC, he executed $20 billion in support of the mission, the Air Commandos and their families. “If there’s one person who’s touched the lives of every Air Commando — past, present and future — it’s Bill,” said Lt. Gen. Eric Fiel, AFSOC commander. “We will miss his compassion for our people, and how he always set them up for continued success.” Rone said he’s looking forward to spending more time with his family, working out more and maybe even learning golf. But first, true to his legacy as an amazing mentor, he offered parting advice for future success and leadership. “You have to commit yourself emotionally, intellectually and physically,” he said. “And work like a dog.”

Sensible sentences Illegally possessing or selling as few as seven pills of hydrocodone is enough to land someone a three-year mandatory minimum sentence in Florida. Among all the harsh and wasteful drug laws in this state, laws involving prescription painkillers might be the most egregious. State law treats painkillers such as hydrocodone and oxycodone like heroin, determining sentences based on weight. The law was meant to lock away dealers hauling truckloads of illegal drugs, but instead has filled prisons with nonviolent addicts. Thankfully, state Sen. Rob Bradley has introduced a bill that would create more reasonable sentences for low-level offenses involving prescription painkillers. The current law helped cause the number of convictions for trafficking in opioids to quadruple over a five-year period to 1,200 in fiscal year 201011, according to the state Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability. Ninety-three percent of those cases involved prescription painkillers, the office found from a sample study. More than half of individuals sentenced for hydrocodone offenses were arrested with fewer than 30 pills. One quarter were arrested for fewer than 15 pills. These are hardly seasoned criminals.

Eighty-five percent of the offenders had never been convicted of a violent offense, the analysis found. Nearly three quarters had never been in prison before. The bill co-introduced by Bradley, a Fleming Island Republican whose district includes Alachua County, would remove prescription painkillers from the section of the law that includes punishment for dealing heroin and other opioids. While the measure is still being tweaked, it would essentially increase the weight threshold required to trigger mandatory minimums for selling or possessing prescription painkillers. Judges would again have discretion in offenses involving small numbers of pills. The change would result in the need for 595 fewer prison beds by fiscal year 2017-18 and save anywhere from $21 million to $61 million over five years, according to a legislative analysis of a previous version that failed to pass last session. Bradley deserves credit for helping to start tackle the thankless task of reforming the state’s senseless drug laws. While there is much more work to be done in eliminating mandatory minimums for low-level offenses, his measure is a reasonable first step that should even attract the support of law enforcement officials. — GAINESVILLE SUN

Small businesses offer choices in Bonifay Recently, I attended the ribbon cutting sponsored by the Holmes Chamber of Commerce of a new business. Whatchamacallits and Dohickeys opened its doors to the public last week. Located east on Brock Ave. at State Road HAPPY CORNER 79 in the former Hazel Wells Tison workshop of Joey Ross, the business offers a variety of stuff, antiques, collectables, gifts, furniture, clothing both upscale used and some handmade. Sandra Krouse came to Bonifay from Virginia Beach, Va., where she has lived for most or her adult life, but she grew up in Chipley, where she graduated high school in 1979. She worked in real estate and had operated a shop in Virginia for a time, but she also had a stall in an antique mall. Family changes caused her to move closer home. Her sister, Kathy York and a brother, David Krouse live in Bonifay. Sharing her home also are Gizmo, her dog, and a kitten she rescued since coming here. She is excited about being here and looks forward to getting to know more people and getting her business up and running. Though land values are lower here, she finds living expenses such as groceries and gasoline higher than where she came from. We wish her the best and trust that her excellent location will bring lots of customers her way. Small Town Pride is another small business that has opened along State. Road 79. Located just south of the U.S. 90 traffic light in the Fish building, Tangie Hathaway has opened her shop of used furniture, antique and collectables. She also has a line of used clothing, shoes, purses, plus dishes, etc. (very similar to Whatchamacallits.) She said purses and shoes have been her best sellers along with dining room furniture. She avoids buying items from individuals but attends auctions and closeout sales.

She attended Union Hill School in her elementary years, where she completed the seventh grade before entering Vernon High School in the eighth grade in 1939. My first seven years of schooling was at Brackin School. I, too, enrolled in Vernon High School, along with Estelle, in the eighth grade. We were both 12 years old at the time. As we were accustomed to the small school atmosphere, we were “lost” in the larger school setting, possibly accounting for a “bonding” in addition to being life-long neighbors. The Hewett Family lived on the east side of Cooks mill pond. Their home area was known as Hewett Hill, where the grandparents, Dave and Genia Leavins Hewett, lived at the crest of the hill where nine children were born and reared. That area is still heavily inhabited with succeeding generations of Hewetts. My family lived on west side of Cook’s mill pond, also on a hillside. My grandparents, Tom and Hannah Brock Wells, reared their six children there. My parents, Hugh and Marie, reared eight children, and an uncle and aunt, Alex and Arleva, reared a total of 12 offspring. In dry weather, one could walk

I recall her delicious biscuit when our family would be enjoying a meal with the Hewetts. To accompany the biscuit, a big mouth gallon jug of freshly canned blackberries would be opened, poured into a large bowl, sprinkled liberally with sugar and served with the piping hot biscuits. This combination made a quickly prepared and delectable blackberry cobbler. On Dec. 8, 1941 Estelle and I sat in the full assembly of Vernon High School students after we had been called together by principal, across Cook’s mill pond, and this was done frequently in the exchange Mr. R.

Estelle married Astor F. (Dick) Scott on Nov. 2, 1946. He had recently been discharged from his war time service in the U.S. Navy. The marriage came just after he had re-enlisted into the U. S. Air Force. She traveled with him in many of his ensuing travels while rearing the children, Douglas Scott and Kathryn Scott Samson. Dick retired from the Air Force in 1964. They enjoyed a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Estelle was described by

her children as one who “loved, attended and enjoyed every family reunion.” “She loved her family and friends unconditionally and did not care who you were, nor what you did, she looked at the positive side.” The funeral service was held at Kent Forest Lawn Funeral Home on Dec. 5, with burial in Evergreen Cemetery. The Rev. J. E. Hodges presided. The Prattler was invited to deliver the eulogy as a representative of the Vernon High School Class of 1944. Estelle becomes the 29th class member to be lost in death. All are greatly missed. Our love and condolences are extended to each family member. See you all next week.

Gulf Power sending team to assist in Texas winter storm Special to Times-Advertiser CHIPLEY — Gulf Power Company is joining other utilities by sending a storm team of 74 employees to assist Oncor with restoration as a winter storm is expected to bring ice and wind to the region. Oncor, the host utility, serves 10 million

customers in the Northeast and west-central Texas areas and covers all expenses incurred by the supporting utilities. The crews will be restoring power in the Dallas area. The storm team includes 52 line personnel and 22 support personnel who will leave in convoys Thursday morning from

Pensacola, Crestview and Chipley. “Our crews are experts in restoration and are often called upon to help in the wake of these devastating storms,” said Jeff Rogers, Gulf Power spokesperson. “They’re battle-tested and ready.” The last time Gulf Power crews were called

on to help during a winter storm, they experienced very similar conditions. “Our last winter storm trip was to the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast last year, so working in wintry conditions is fresh on our minds,” Rogers said. “This experience helps our crews keep their skills

sharp — it’s a great value for our customers and means faster restoration right here at home.” Gulf Power Company is an investor-owned electric utility with all of its common stock owned by Atlanta-based Southern Company. Gulf Power serves more than 430,000 customers in eight counties throughout

Northwest Florida. The company’s mission is to safely provide exceptional customer value by delivering reliable, affordable and environmentally responsible electricity while strengthening our communities. Visit online at GulfPower.com or on the company’s Facebook page, “Gulf Power Company.”

LBWCC students pledge to complete degrees Gulf Coast Medical Center announces name change

Special to Halifax Media Group OPP, Ala. — Statistics show the surest way for anyone to land a job in his chosen field is to finish college and earn a degree or certificate, and that’s exactly what students at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College promised to do at the recent “Commit to Complete” event. Bridgett Landers of Westville, a nursing student at LBWCC in Opp, Ala., was among the students who learned how the United States has fallen from first to 16th among the 34 industrialized economies in the world when measuring the percentage of citizens having earned a college credential or degree and the effects that has on national security and democracy in general. They also learned that within five years, 65 percent of all new jobs will require a postsecondary credential. Those are only two of the reasons students gathered to sign a mass pledge to complete their associate degrees or certificates before leaving community college for transfer or to enter the job market, part of a national movement sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. At the recent event, hosted by the Alpha Beta

Special to Halifax Media Group

Bridgett Landers of Westville, a nursing student at Lurlene B. Wallace Community College in Opp, Ala., signs the pledge banner to complete her degree or certificate. Eta chapter of PTK, administrators, faculty and staff also signed the pledge, committing themselves to do whatever they can to facilitate completion of student credentials. “It is vitally important to your future to complete a college credential,” LBWCC President Dr. Herb Riedel told the group. “Even if you plan to transfer, complete your associate’s degree first. Then, in case you are faced with a sudden, unexpected need to enter the workforce, you will have a better chance to find employment than those without a credential.”

PTK members are serving as the student arm of the Community College Completion Challenge, a national education initiative. Three years ago, leaders of six national organizations representing the nation’s 1,200 community colleges signed The Call to Action, a pledge to increase student completion rates by 50 percent over the next decade. PTK was the only student organization asked to participate and launched the Community College Completion Corps in response. Learn more at www.cccompletioncorps. org . At the 2010 White House

Summit for Community Colleges, President Barack Obama called for community colleges to produce an additional 5 million degrees and certificates in the next 10 years, part of a goal to restore the United States as the world’s leader in college graduates. Students who complete their degrees or certificates will earn an average of $500,000 more over the course of their careers than their peers who did not complete. In addition, individuals with credentials are less likely to become unemployed than their co-workers who did not earn credentials.

PANAMA CITY — Gulf Coast Medical Center announced on Monday its plans to change its name to Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center. As part of the regional strategy, Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center has formed clinical affiliation partnerships with Northwest Florida Community Hospital in Chipley, Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay, and Jackson Hospital in Marianna. Through the affiliations, Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center can partner with rural hospitals to provide state-of-the-art services to the residents that live in those wonderful communities. Additionally, Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center has partnered with InTouch Health, providing 24/7 telemedicine stroke care to patients across North Florida. This

program allows physicians to provide real-time audio/video consultations, at the patient’s bedside, with a moment’s notice from anywhere in the world. By receiving immediate access to a Board-Certified Neurologist, and prompt treatment, brain function can be saved. In October, the hospital unveiled a new 42-bed critical care wing that includes a 20-bed adult-level Intensive Care Unit, an 18-bed NICU and a fourbed PICU. The ICU capacity was increased by eight beds and it contains all of the latest equipment needed for the delivery of evidence-based care, while focusing on the patient and providing a family-centered approach to care. The NICU expanded from a 10-bed Level II unit with the capacity to provide Level III care in January 2014.

ORLANDO — Blountstown’s winning formula was neutralized by Trenton on Friday. It was Trenton that was more dominant on defense and it defeated Blountstown 14-0 for the Class 1A state football championship at the Citrus Bowl. Top-ranked Blountstown was shut out for the first time since Aug. 31, 2012, in falling to 13-1. Trenton, ranked fourth, won its first state title a year after finishing second and improved to 12-1 with its 11th consecutive victory. Trenton reversed the trend exhibited in Blountstown’s playoff run. Trenton’s defense kept Blountstown in check with two early sacks and it controlled the second half. Blountstown couldn’t maintain its dose of tough, grinding offense coupled with a punishing defense in its first state final appearance since 2004. Blountstown’s defense remained difficult to penetrate, but its offense was inefficient. It gained only 142 yards on 54 plays and nearly had as many penalty yards (136) with 14 flags. Blountstown also had been winning the turnover battle in recent weeks, but had three on Friday, the same number as Trenton. Blountstown couldn’t gain any traction in the first half against a quick and athletic Trenton defense. Blountstown was forced into punts on its first five possessions and didn’t record its initial first down until six minutes before halftime on a 25-yard pass completion between Dylan Lee and Hunter Jordan. The first down came on Blountstown’s seventh possession and second-longest drive of the game, six plays for 30 yards. It also ended in a punt. Jordan unleashed a 62-yarder to pin Trenton at its 3-yard line. Blountstown lost a fumble by Fabian Solomon to end its sixth possession. Trenton punted on its final two possessions and also had three turnovers in the first half. Hamp Cheevers lost the ball inside the Blountstown 10 on his second and final reception of the game. Cheevers had 102 of Trenton’s 114 total yards in the first 24 minutes. Trenton had four first-half punts to go along with its three fumbles. Cheevers opened the scoring with a 54-yard touchdown catch from Stephen Smith late in the first quarter on third-and-14. It was the first points yielded by Blountstown in the opening quarter this season. Trenton had only 1 yard on nine other plays from scrimmage in the quarter. Blountstown’s best chance for an answer in the first half started at the Trenton 38 following a punt. Blountstown moved to the 31 for fourth-and-2, but Shon Peterson was stopped for a 7-yard loss on his first carry of the game. Trenton capped the scoring when Micheal Smith returned an interception of Jordan 35 yards for a touchdown with 6:27 to play in the third quarter. Micheal Smith grabbed one of three completed passes by Stephen Smith. Cheevers added a long rush and finished with 124 total yards. Trenton was held to 199 yards and six first downs. It also was penalized eight times for 104 yards. Lee and Jordan combined to complete 4 of 11 passes for 63 yards and two interceptions.

The city of Bonifay provided hamburgers, drinks and hot chocolate while Bonifay Fire and Rescue provided the volunteers to cook and distribute the food and drinks, as well as keep an eye on the large bonfire that kept everyone toasty as the night got chilly.

First Baptist Church of Esto welcomes new Pastor Special to Extra

The Rev. Randy Torrance became the new pastor at the First Baptist Church of Esto this month, replacing founding Pastor Ryan Begue, who left earlier this year. Torrance wants to help the church, “Gain a vision of what we can accomplish and be a blessing to the community” and be “spiritually healthy and strong.” “We want to help people connect with God and find His presence and love in their lives any way that we can.” Torrance said. Although the goal is not necessarily to make the church grow, he said he hopes that growth will be a natural outcome of the church’s spiritual development. He and his wife, Loanna are excited to make the Esto community a new chapter of their lives together. Since being married, they have lived in Melbourne, Umatilla, St. Petersburg, and most recently Live Oak, Fla. He mentioned that he has some important goals planned for the First Baptist Church. At the forefront is glorifying God in everything the church does. Secondly, he said he wants to maintain a church that meets the needs of its community. “Too many times, churches separate themselves from what goes on

in their community and lose their relevance within that community.” Torrance stated. He wants to have a church that is meeting needs and reaching people, and one that loves and cares for one another, too. “I want First Baptist Church to be more than just a church that you come to weekly and go to potluck dinners once in a while and show up for Bible study and then leave,” he said. “I want it to be a living, breathing community, part of the Esto community that God placed it in.” Pastor Torrance is currently leading the congregation of First Baptist in a series of establishing a Right

Christmas for the current month of December. He said that Christmas is not about Trees and Tinsel, Gifts and Garland, or Music and Mistletoe. While these things are important to the traditions of the season, he wishes to remind the community that Jesus is the reason for the season. First Baptist Esto is located at 1050 North Highway 79 in Esto. Their times of services are; Sunday School/Bible Study at 9:30 a.m., Morning Worship at 10:30 a.m., Evening Worship at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday Evening Worship at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

Going through my wallet this time I found something that shocked me to the core of my being. There in my wallet, folded up rather neatly and tucked in a corner, was a $50 bill. I cannot tell you the last time I saw a $50 bill. How it got there, I will never know. My father always had a folded $50 bill in his wallet for emergencies. I am not my father. Ordinarily, you would think finding $50 in your wallet would be a moment of rejoicing. Not so here. It is towards the end of the year, all gifts are purchased for Christmas and all bills are paid. I like to pay ahead of time just to make sure the bills are being paid. And so there was nothing that needed to be paid at that time. Life has taught me several lessons and one in particular. If you find extra money it means some disaster is about to befall. Usually the catastrophe that happens costs more than the money you find. I found $50 and so it is reasonable to believe that the catastrophe facing me will cost $100. I did not know if I should mention this to my wife. It is not that we are superstitious, we have just live life long enough to know what comes around goes around and what goes up usually comes down. What is going to happen now? What is going to go wrong? What in the house is going to fall apart? Then

A&B

my dilemma was solved. My wife came into the room and said, “I was wondering,” and she was stammering a little bit as she said it. “I was wondering if perhaps we could take the grandchildren out for Christmas lunch tomorrow. I know it costs a lot, but I think they would enjoy it.” I smiled and she looked at me a little quizzically and asked, “What are you smiling about?” It was then I pulled out of my wallet the neatly folded $50 bill and waved it in her direction and said, “I think Christmas lunch with the grandchildren tomorrow would be a fantastic idea.” Some people worry about what they do not have. I worry about what I have to make sure I am using it in the best possible manner. “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High” (Psalms 92:1). I am thankful for what I have but I am also thankful for what I do not have. Nothing takes the place of a contented heart and my contentment rests in the Lord Jesus Christ. I need nothing more.
