New HCDC members appointed by BOCC By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — After the recent resignation of two Holmes County Development Commission members, the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners held a special session on April 16 to appoint two more members. The board approved Commissioner Bill Parish’s recommendation of Raymond Thomas and Commissioner David Whitaker’s recommendation of Chuck Dockery. Board Chairman Monty Merchant said there was only one more resignation that needs attending to,

which is that of Lenora Campbell. “It’s time to take a serious look at the development commission and get the ball rolling,” said Merchant. “There still isn’t a director yet but there’s a growing concern about the development commission. I’ve had questions to me about the development commission having a lot of money and wondering what they are doing for the county.” Parish said one problem with the development commission is “low attendance, apathy and lack of participation.” “We need to take a stronger look at how we choose those members,”

Bill aims to help rural communities By VALERIE GARMAN

747-5076 | @valeriegarman PANAMA CITY — The city of Blountstown, located in Northeast Calhoun County, operates on a $3 million per year budget and is struggling to keep up with infrastructure needs. “It’s no cheaper to fix things here than it is in a big city,” said City Manager Emory Pierce. “But in big cities with multi-million dollar budgets, a couple of thousand dollars to fix something is nothing.” The story is similar for rural communities across the Panhandle region, and U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Pana-

ma City, is hoping a new bill might help those areas he said “form the backbone of North and Northwest Florida.” Southerland recently introduced the Building Rural Communities Act, a bill aimed at giving rural government officials the necessary tools to plan largescale improvement projects in a more cost-effective manner. Co-sponsored by Rep. Mike McIntyre, D- N.C., the legislation would channel between 3 and 5 percent of funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Development Essential Communities Facilities loan and grant program toward technical assistance and financial planning for rural communities.

“Unfortunately, across America many of these bedrock communities are fading away because they can’t match the access to infrastructure and services that larger cities provide,” Southerland said. “Our legislation will make it easier for rural communities to thrive by providing the technical assistance and project planning they need to strengthen public safety, public health, and public access to upgraded services – all at no additional cost to taxpayers.” Pierce said funding issues have halted a project to run a force main sewer line from Altha, a small town to the northwest, to the Blountstown


BONIFAY — Liquor laws could get looser in several rural Panhandle counties. The Florida Legislature passed a bill last week (HB 347) that could help all restaurants sell liquor, wine and beer in counties where that is not currently allowed, including Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington counties. The bill would affect sales of “by the drink” alcohol, which are beverages consumed where they’re purchased, such as restaurants and bars. But, even if the bill is signed by the governor, which appears likely —it cleared the House 111-4 and the Senate 36-0 —it doesn’t automatically legalize “by the drink” sales throughout the counties. The measure would fall back into the hands of local voters, who would have an easier time getting it on the ballot. Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington currently do not sell liquor by the drink. State Rep. Marti Coley, a Marianna Republican, said twice in recent years there has been an effort to get the issue on the ballot, but it failed. The Legislature’s response was to water down the process. Under current state law, to get an initial election on the sale of alcohol in a county, an application must be presented to the county commission with 25 percent of registered voters’ signatures. If that initial election allows alcohol to be sold only in package stores, then the county residents must again round up 25 percent of voters’

BOCC from page A1 said Parish. Commissioner Bobby Sasnett said they needed ambitious individuals. “What we need is some go-getters,” said Sasnett. “Young, intelligent and willing to work.” County Attorney Jeff Goodman recommended that the commissioners hold a workshop with the development council after the last new member is appointed and had “time to settle in” and discuss roles, responsibilities and goals. “It’s important that the board en-

courages things to get moving,” said Merchant. “Get them on helping our businesses and to bring new businesses in.” The board approved of Merchant’s request to start their mosquito spraying immediately. “We’ve already started getting complaints about mosquitoes,” said Merchant. “I know we said we’d start around May 1 to mid May, but can’t we start immediately? We’ll retain the same six-month period, we’re just starting early.”

Rural from page A1 wastewater treatment plant. Currently, all of Altha’s buildings run off of septic tanks. “Without real community sewer lines, they are severely limited in Altha and along that entire corridor toward Blountstown,” Pierce said. He said the Calhoun County School District is exploring options for a new high school in Altha, but the current infrastructure cannot support a structure that size. Overall, Pierce said he would support any bill that could help rural areas like Blountstown.

“We have the normal aging infrastructure that all cities big and small have, and we are searching for funding to help with our internally generated funds,” said Pierce, who noted the city cannot raise utility rates for fear of losing customers. “All people and businesses here are strapped. If we raise rates, I would estimate we would lose several customers and the community just can’t stand that.” Southerland’s bill was referred to the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture for further consideration.

Charles H. Bringham Vincent Ray Baxley passenger, 19-year-old Bringham Ray Baxley of Chipley. Both men were arrested in connection with charges of possession

of controlled substance (methamphetamine), trafficking in methamphetamine, manufacture of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, according to the release. In the early morning hours of April 16, a Holmes County Deputy conducted a traffic stop for an equipment violation in the Pittman community.

The Holmes County School Board will be considering amendments to School Board Policies at the School Board meeting May 21, 2013 at 6:00p.m. A copy of the documents to be amended may be viewed at the Holmes County School Board Office Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. A public hearing will be held May 21, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. in the Board Room.


14,665 voters so would need 1,467 signatures. Or the county commissions, through a majority vote, could put the measure in the voters’ hands. Legislative process Coley said she wasn’t necessarily opposed to the policy, but she voted against it because it was tacked onto the bill late in the process as an amendment. “The substance of the amendment was never heard in committee and only affects three counties,” she said in a statement. “Since it was added on the House floor, there was not time to contact the communities that will be impacted.” Coley said the legislation should have been a standalone bill, so it would have had adequate time to be debated and those impacted could offer input. She concluded, “However, in the end, the citizens still have the final decision.” Coley was able to round up two of her Panhandle colleagues — state Reps. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello, and Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City — to vote against the bill, which passed by a landslide. State Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone Heights, also voted against it. Patronis took the same view as Coley. “Hey, I like live and let live, and I think all that’s fine,” he said of liquor laws, “but there’s a process in place and those people in Jackson County, if they wanted it, they would have asked their legislator to file a bill and go through the normal vetting process.” Patronis is co-owner of Capt. Anderson’s, which serves beer, wine and mixed drinks. His problem with the amendment was that it was filed on the House floor 24 hours before it was voted on. Rep. Ronald “Doc” Renuart, R-Ponte Vedra Beach, who sponsored the bill, also filed the amendment. “A lot of people didn’t know about it,” Patronis said.


signatures to put it back on the ballot for “by the drink” sales in restaurants. That’s the issue in Jackson County. The recently passed bill would require only one-tenth of voters’ signatures, or a majority vote by the county commission. That would put the issue on the ballot to legalize “by the drink” sales of beer, wine and liquor containing more than 6.243 percent alcohol by volume. Present situation Jackson County Commissioner Willie Spires said about five of the 11 municipalities allow restaurants to serve beer. He said some businesses just outside the city limits feel it’s unfair because their competition can serve alcohol while they can’t. “People are optimistic that now they can get it on the ballot and get it passed,” he said. Spires can be counted among those who wouldn’t mind seeing alcohol served in restaurants throughout the county. “I see it as a good thing,” he said. “I think living in a small rural area such as Jackson County that we miss out on a lot of tax [revenue] that could be generated; a lot of people in our area go to Panama City or Dothan (Ala.) or Tallahassee.” Spires said allowing alcohol to be served in restaurants countywide could translate into economic development, ushering more restaurants like Red Lobster or Applebee’s. Spires said he thought Jackson County residents would like to see the law changed, too. The county has 28,773 registered voters and would need 2,878 signatures to get the measure on the ballot. Calhoun County has 8,276 registered voters and would need 827 signatures to get the measure on the ballot. Holmes County has 11,375 registered voters and would need 1,138 signatures. Liberty County has 4,403 registered voters and would need 441 signatures. Washington County has

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — A Washington County resident questioned a county commissioner’s request for a job description during Thursday’s Board of County Commissioners meeting in Chipley. Skyla Carter of Chipley told the commissioners she had concerns about county interviewing policies that were raised when she requested e-mails of county officials through the Florida Sunshine Law. In the e-mails, Commissioner Lynn Gothard asked Heather Finch, former human resources director for the county, to send her a copy of the public safety director job description, but to send it to a different e-mail account. Currently the county does not have a public safety director, since the retirement of Roger Hagan in December. “I was concerned about the e-mail being sent to a different address,” Carter said. “I had made a request for all e-mails about the public safety director position, and I was wondering if there were any e-mails I didn’t receive. Gothard said she knew what Carter was talking about. “I sent Heather an e-mail asking her to send a copy of the job description to me,” Gothard said. Her husband, Washington County Fire Chief Al Gothard, has many professional contacts and he would be able to spread the word that the county was looking for a public safety director. “He knows several qualified professionals and he could pass on the information to them,” Gothard said. The job description and advertisement of the job opening had already been published, Gothard said. “We were wanting to get as broad a selection of candidates as possible,

County Commissioner Lynn Gothard, left, takes notes during the April board meeting, alongside Commissioners Todd Abbott and Alan Bush. there was nothing underhanded about the e-mail.” Gothard said at the meeting on Thursday that she “in no way got involved in the hiring process during the search for a public safety director.” However, according to a March 22 letter written by Emergency Management employee Connie Welch to Lynne Abel, emergency management coordinator, Gothard had plans to create a public safety director position and she had a person in mind to hire for that job. “Soon after the election, Washington County Fire Chief Gothard was in my office and advised me of his and his wife’s plan for a Public Safety Division Director and he and his wife had the perfect person for the position in mind,” Welch wrote. According to a letter to the board from Grant Coordinator Stacy Webb, dated March 27, Gothard had approached Carol Park and Webb on March 12 wanting to see the applications for the Public Safety Position. “She was very demanding and came across as being forceful,” Webb wrote. “Carol and I looked at each other for a couple of seconds and after a brief hesitation, we reluctantly acknowledged her request and Carol escorted her into her office where the applications were kept in a safe and I proceeded to

my office.” According to the county attorney, applications for county jobs are public records and, minus social security numbers and health-related information, they are open to public inspection. Also at Thursday’s meeting, the commissioners voted to rescind an earlier vote and move the Emergency Medical Services department out from under the purview of the public safety director. At the Jan. 24 board meeting, it was Commissioner Gothard who made the motion to move the Emergency Medical Services back under the public safety director’s control per the county’s Proposed Progressive Governmental Structure chart, approved in 2008. After discussion, the commissioners voted at the January meeting to make the move, with Commissioner Joel Pate voting against the change. On the organizational chart, in 2008 the EMS is listed under the Public Safety director, but in 2009 the chart was revised and EMS was moved out to be a department on its own. The public safety director’s job description for the director’s position was to revert back to the old description and the job was to be re-advertised, per the commissioners’ decision, the board decided on Thursday.

husband, Terry Driggers, and their three year old grand daughter, Zoe attended. James Earl Guy and wife, Naomi, came again this year although his mother, Myrtle Haddock Guy, was unable to come. Nadine Kolmetz accompanied her husband, and Hester was with me, along with two of our sons, Gordon and Tim and wife, Debbie. Emma Lou Chesser Tew and Thomas H. Knight had to cancel when medical issues thwarted their plans just days before the event. Indirectly, word was received that Estelle Hewett Scott, Bessie Lee Milton Davenport and Carl Hightower would be unable to attend. Louvern Chestnut Mizell called from Virginia, reported her inability to attend. Bill McFatter wrote a letter, stating he could not be with us and expressed doubt that his sister, and our classmate, Carol McFatter Hudson, would be able to come. Myrtle Morris Wolfe wrote a note stating she could not attend this year. Trudell Brock Worthington held high hopes of being at the event, but obviously did not feel up to the task. The group comprising the Vernon High School class of 1944 recognizes that we may have set a record of keeping in touch following graduation 69 years ago. We also recognize the time has come when attendance is becoming difficult for some, and impossible for others. We will probably look closely at all circumstances prior to planning further reunions. See you all next week.

Although Doolittle himself feared that he might be court marshaled because of the loss of the planes, he received the Presidential Medal of Honor. Even though the raid did insignificant damage to mainland Japan, it gave our country a great morale boost after Pearl Harbor and Japan’s dominance there. It also caused the Japanese to focus on protecting their own Island nation and helped to bring American victory in the defense of Midway Islands. Though the Japanese suffered light casualties in the Tokyo raid, they extracted a heavy toll on the Chinese who aided the Americans. 250,000 were slaughtered as a result. Speaking about the crew’s attitude concerning the attack, Cole, Doolittle’s co-pilot said, “We were pretty upbeat about what was going to happen. We just did what we had to do.” This is typical of the veterans of that war. Most of them were young and had the attitude that we have a job to do, let’s get it done. They kept their faith and their sense of humor. Lt. Col Saylor joked with young airmen in the audience concerning his reaction about the bombing, “ ….it was too far to swim back home so we might as well go ahead with it.” We need to continue to tell their story and celebrate their bravery as we keep their legacy alive.

Perkins, a retired military Mess Sergeant, was the lunchroom manager at Vernon High School at the time. He agreed to open the school lunchroom, prepare the meal, serve us and provide all the clean up with the total cost assessed at $1.25 per person! I hope we gave him a generous tip. The second reunion in 1989, was held at the Chipley Motel Restaurant, then the top eatery in town. We also met there in the years, 1992, 1994 and 1997. The year 2000 was the mammoth one, held at the Northwest Florida Campground and Music Park. VHS Graduating classes from 1940-41 through 1950-51 were included. Music was provided by Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, as Doyle was born on April 20, 1944. Others performing were Sand Hills City Limits, headed by W. T. Miller and son, Jimmy Miller and Sheriff Buddy Smith, and his musical group from Blountstown. The 1944 class has met annually, and at a variety of places since 2000. In 2002, our meeting place was the Wells homestead, with food catered by Angie Morris and daughter Jill. Only three class members, Frances Shores Fussell, Fredrick Kolmetz and Perry E. Wells, attended this year’s event. Two of Hurdis Brock’s son, Steve and Stan, along with wife, Kay, came. His two brothers, Drexel, along with son, Doug, and Bill, accompanied by wife, Betty, and their son, Gordon, added to the numbers.

Everyone can make a difference Dear Editor, This year’s Earth Day served as an outstanding reminder that everyone can make an important difference for the environment through the simple act of donating gently used clothing or household items to Goodwill. Each year, donors help Goodwill prevent more than two billion pounds of usable goods from ending up in landfills. But the impact to the environment is only part of the story. Revenue raised from the sale of donated items at Goodwill stores funds job training programs, employment placement services and other vital programs in the community. People, as well as the planet, benefit. To show individuals how their donations truly impact their communities, Goodwill

developed a Donation Impact Calculator (http://donate. The calculator shows how your donation can help a person receiving services from Goodwill. For example, a donation of one working computer translates into 5.8 hours of a job search class that can help a person right in our community who may be unemployed and struggling to support his or her family. Goodwill encourages everyone to making one small green change in your life. Individual actions add up to global impact. Not only will you be helping those in your community who face challenges in finding employment, but you will also reduce waste in our landfills. To find your nearest Goodwill donation site, go to

United We Stand Dear Editor, Americans are united today in condemning terrorism and in the conviction that those responsible for the terrorist attacks in Boston must face justice. This cowardly attack resulted in the murders of an eight-year-old boy and two women, and the wounding of many others. As God tells us in the Quran, “if you murder one person, it as if you murdered all of humanity.” While we are outraged at the terrorists, we have been inspired by the unity of Americans of all backgrounds. We are a resilient people. Now that we know the identity of the perpetrators, this unity is ever more important. We will show the terrorists that their plan to sow division and distrust has failed. People of goodwill are not afraid. America will stay united. American Muslims thank law enforcement for their diligent efforts to protect all our nation’s citizens. We send our sincere condolences to the loved ones of the MIT police officer killed overnight and our prayers are with the law enforcement official who was wounded. We reiterate the American Muslim community’s consistent condemnation of terrorism in all its forms. Sincerely,

Bonifay man arrested on charges of possession of listed chemicals

Company raises funds by holding golf tournament

From Staff Reports


BONIFAY — A Holmes County Sheriff’s deputy arrested a Bonifay man on charges of possessing chemicals needed to make meth after being stopped for a tag violation on April 18, according to a sheriff’s office news release. Arrested was Jerry Hiram John- Jerry Hiram son, 43, of Bonifay, on charges of (or Johnson in connection with charges of) possession of listed chemicals used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine (pseudoephedrine) and attaching a tag not assigned, according to the release. A Holmes County deputy stopped Johnson’s vehicle in the Pittman community for a tag violation. During a search of Johnson’s person, the deputy found a box of pseudoephedrine hidden in Johnson boot, according to the release. Authorities say Johnson said he bought the pseudoephedrine to use for making methamphetamines. Johnson remains in the Holmes County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Trawick Construction presented United Way of Northwest Florida a check for $5,868 on Friday at the Trawick office in Chipley. The company held a golf tournament to raise the money for United Way, and representatives from United Way and the Washington County Council on Aging were on hand to accept the gift. Smith of the Washington County Council on Aging, a United Way agency. “Our goal is to provide for the founders of Washington County, to meet their needs and to keep them in their homes for as long as possible.” Smith said the Council on Aging has suffered a 15 percent budget decrease in the last two years, and because of budget constraints, the Meals on Wheels program is limited and there is a waiting list of seniors requesting hot meals. “We’ll do anything we

can to help promote the golf tournament,” said Smith. “Just let us know and we’ll do what we can to help.” “This golf tournament is so important because there is a real need for these services,” said Nicole Barefield, publisher of the Washington County News and the Holmes County Times-Advertiser said. “We see it every day.” “For every dollar you donate, the Council on Aging gets $9 in matching funds. I don’t know anywhere else you can get a 9-to-1 return on your money,” said Ron

Sharpe, director of resource development for United Way of Northwest Florida. The money raised by the local golf tournament stays in Northwest Florida and helps our United Way agencies and our neighbors, Sharpe said. “You know how important it is what you guys are doing, I hope you can hear the sincerity when we say ‘thank you,’” Sharpe told the Trawick employees. “You didn’t have to do this tournament, but you got involved and did it. That is so awesome.”

Hooked on Outdoors I’ve plowed this ground before, but I’m going to dig in and plow it again which is the temperature of the Gulf along the beaches, or better yet where the readings originate. What the temperature is 10 miles offshore is of no concern to pompano and ling fishermen. No one can tell me with any accuracy just where these Gulf temperatures are coming from. It is possible to pull up a buoy offshore on your computer and get a reading, or you can listen to the news and get another, but to get one that is important to fishermen a Outdoor mile offshore is impossible Life to verify. The Scott Lindsey only way I captainlindsey@ can come up with a temperature that is close to accurate is to ask a fisherman with a temperature gauge on his boat. The last time I tracked down where the Gulf temperature was being recorded here turned out to be at the city marina. The water temperature at the city marina is 5 degrees warmer than the Gulf. People do not fish for pompano or ling at the city marina. Last week one station was reporting 70 degrees in the Gulf and who knows where that came from. A friend fishing the same day told me his bottom machine was reporting 65 degrees in 20 feet of water. That was more realistic than a reading from who knows where of 70 degrees. Sixty-five degrees is a long way from 70. The boats in Destin were reporting temperatures in the 70s and they were catching ling. That was not the case here. Eight or 10, or event 10-20 ling being caught here in a week is not a lot of ling when some years back we were catching that many a day. For some reason we just aren’t getting the warm water we have in the past. The Mexico Beach Ling Ding tournament up until this weekend had three ling brought to the dock. Organizers want this tournament to rival the event it was 15 years ago, but nature has dealt them a bad hand. Who knows, a thermal of warm water may swing their way. I hope so. Pompano are showing up little by little. Cussing Cousin, my eyes and ears fishing from one of our piers, tells me he is seeing some schools of pompano passing by the pier where he is fishing heading west to points unknown. But not enough to write home about. Some fishermen are catching pompano from their boats, some tipping jigs with sand fleas and some not. I have bombed out in two days fishing, but in my defense the wind was blowing a hurricane both days. I suppose talking temperatures this late in the game is a moot conversation. In about three weeks the majority of the ling will have passed on west, so it won’t make much difference.

(There’s a good bit of adult language on the video when the shark first comes up at boatside, as you might expect—anybody who can look a shark of that size in the eye at close range and not utter an expletive is much man indeed.)

Are there great whites off the Panhandle? Scientists say there could be. The species prefers water temperatures in the 60s, which are common in Panhandle waters from December through March. And the large pelagic species like yellowfins, bluefins and swordfish are common in offshore waters here — all are on the menu for great whites. Where mammal prey is abundant, whites seem to prefer the high energy flesh; seals, whales and porpoises are all part of their diet. Researchers say that white sharks historically might have prowled the Gulf in search of the Caribbean monk seal, which was common here until it went extinct in the 1940s. However, as far as white sharks ever threatening Panhandle beaches, the odds are slim. Swimmers don’t show up on area beaches until water temperatures are already too warm for comfort of carcharodon carcharias, and the gentle shelf in most areas is not conducive to long visits from this species—though as was made notorious through the film “Jaws”, they do sometimes prowl near shore in New England waters.

Whites elsewhere in Florida The East Coast gets more frequent visits from this giant predator. According to Neil Hammerschlag, an assistant professor at the University of Miami’s Marine Science department who has studied great whites for over a decade, he gets a call almost every year about a fisherman or boater seeing one. In 2011, commercial spearfishermen off Deerfield Beach had one take an amberjack

off one of their spears as they floated the fish to the surface. They were also commercial sharkers who knew shark species well, and saw the shark come by their boat after the remains of the AJ at a distance of only a few feet — they identified it as a white 14 to 15 feet long — not the look-alike mako. George Burgess, director of shark research at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, checked the bites on the remains of the AJ and judged them to likely have come from a white — the mako has teeth more designed for puncturing than shearing. Great whites, which Burgess said may be following and feeding on whales and their calves during winter migrations into Florida, do occasionally get caught here. Notable catches include a 16-footer estimated at more than 1,000 pounds, caught off Key Largo in 1997 and a 2,300-pounder caught off Key West in 1956. A white shark estimated at 2,000 pounds was caught, tagged and released by a conservation research group off Jacksonville early this month.

White shark life history Like many sharks, whites are born alive rather than hatching from eggs dropped by the mother, and reportedly one embryo often eats the others while still inside the womb, definitely not helping this endangered species in the survival department. They take about 15 years to reach sexual maturity; they remain “juveniles” until they’re 12 to 14 feet long. Lifespan is thought to be about 30 years, maximum size up to 7,000 pounds and over 20 feet long. They have been protected by international treaty from harvest since 2004 under the CITES agreement which prohibits trade in endangered species. Biologists say white sharks do not “hunt” humans, but they take pretty much any large prey that presents itself, so swimming where they’re fairly common — as along some parts of the California coast as well as southern Australia beaches — can be somewhat risky. Here on the sugar sand of the Panhandle, not so much. Bull sharks are of course another matter, for another story.

grades K-12, for not having that pedigree engrained into memory. Suffice to say that for a group of teenagers 30 years between district titles is a very long dearth of success, twice a lifetime for some of these players. Junior catcher Savannah Ryken clearly is one of the team leaders, as is sophomore second baseman Joley Dixon. The difference between these athletes and those in higher classifications is that many of Hall’s players have been on the varsity since their seventh-, eighth- and ninth-grade years. Not surprisingly, what they’ve already accomplished has created quite a buzz in the community. Hall said that the paid gate for the district championship was 212 spectators, and speculated that might double on Tuesday with Chipley located about 18 miles away. Bay County would have a difficult time matching that. But then again, nothing about this Poplar Springs team is easily replicated. Hall said that some members of the community are getting a banner made to commemorate what has thus far been achieved. It is a fitting tribute. And quite possibly, the start of something altogether even more lasting.

GC’s McLemore, Sanders earn top Panhandle Conference softball honors By BRAD MILNER

To the victor goes the spoils. And talent helps, too. The Gulf Coast softball team secured its first Panhandle Conference softball title since 2006 this season and the success was noted on the league’s year-end teams released this week. Ollivia McLemore earned the conference’s best pitcher honor, Emily Sanders is the player of the year and Susan Painter was named the top coach. Five Lady Commodores earned first-team nods and four were on the second team. No GC player was named honorable mention. “It’s a tough conference and we had our share of talented players to compete against the other teams,” Painter said. “Any time you can get recognition for your players it’s a positive for the program.” Second-place Chipola had six firstteamers and three players on each of the second- and honorable-mention teams. Third-place Northwest Florida State had 10 players on the three teams, including four first-teamers. Fifth-place Pensacola had 11 players recognized and fourth-place Tallahassee only four, with two on the second team. McLemore and Sanders joined in-

“It’s a tough conference and we had our share of talented players to compete against the other teams. Any time you can get recognition for your players it’s a positive for the program.” — Coach Susan Painter fielder Amanda Grimaldo, at-large utility player Anna Martin and pitcher Paige Caraway on the first team. Outfielders Katie White and Sian Colee, third baseman Brittany Wylie and catcher Mackenzie Arlt were second-teamers. Sanders, an Indian River transfer, surpassed the other four first-team outfielders in nearly every statistical category. She led all infielders in batting average (.432), hits (83), doubles (16), home runs (14) and RBIs (44) and was second only to Grimaldo in runs (46). Sanders anchored second base and filled in at shortstop for Grimaldo, who missed a few games with a finger injury. McLemore established herself as one of the conference’s top pitchers as a freshman with 21 wins and 165 strikeouts. She improved on those numbers

this season with a 26-10 record and 219 strikeouts in 218 1/3 innings pitched while also lowering her ERA to 1.38 after posting a 1.74 mark in 2012. She rebounded from a rough start in conference play, giving up 10 runs in 5 2/3 innings of two appearances against NWF State. She started 1-2 in Panhandle outings, but she won five in a row, including earning the victorious decision in both games of doubleheaders against Tallahassee and NWF State to help the Lady Commodores build a first-place lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Caraway provided a complement to McLemore and grew stronger as the season progressed. She had 103 strikeouts to only 14 walks in 93 innings while posting a 9-3 record. Chipola’s Eva Voortman and Sneads product Karissa Childs rounded out the first-team pitchers. Voortman was 17-2 and finished 6-1 in conference starts and Childs was 10-6. Chipola’s Hayley Parker, Kristen Allen, Stephanie Garrells and Mya Anderson also made the first team. GC and Chipola will compete in the NJCAA Gulf District/FCSAA state tournament in Pensacola May 3-5. The winner of the Gulf District earns a berth in the national tournament. “We’re excited about the awards,” Painter said. “But we have to get back to work.”

Prep ROUNDUP District 2-1A

Holmes County 4, Baker 0 BAKER — Holmes County junior left-hander Ty Russ saved his best for the playoffs. Russ (6-2) pitched his third no-hitter of the season Tuesday night, but this time he was perfect. The Blue Devil struck out 10 of the 21 batters he faced in the seven-inning District 2-1A semifinal. Holmes County’s Junior Miles was 1 for 2 with two runs scored, Russ 2-3 with a triple and two RBIs, Kodi Russ 1-3 with an RBI double and Jordan Worthing 1-3 with an RBI double. District 2-6A

Crestview 3, Mosley 2 CRESTVIEW — Davis Champion went the distance on the mound for Crestview and Mosley couldn’t find the big hit against him in the district final. Dakota Dean had a pair of hits and scored a run for the Bulldogs (21-5). Champion earned the win the hard way, scattering 11 Dolphin hits to go along with just four strikeouts. But Champion made the Mosley batters work to reach base as he didn’t allow a walk. The Dolphins (24-3), the No. 1 Class 6A team in the state, looked as if they were going to make short work of things with four-consecutive one-out hits in the first inning. But Mosley only got one run out of the threat as the inning ended on the first double play. The Bulldogs tied things up in the third inning as Dean tripled and scored on a passed ball. Mosley strung together three more hits good for another run in the bottom of the fourth inning, but another double play snuffed out the threat. Crestview got back-toback doubles from Tate Sweatt and Roman Donofro to lead off the fifth inning and tie the game up. A two-out single by Corey Armstrong scored Donofro with the game winning run. Mosley had a runner in scoring position in both the sixth and seventh innings, but Champion and the Bulldogs wouldn’t be denied as they kept the Dolphins off the scoreboard to claim the win. Larry was 3 for 4, Clay Causey 2 for 3 and Brady Bell 2 for 4, while Joey Hair pitched five innings for the loss. Andrew Deramo finished up for the Dolphins. District 4-1A

Liberty County 4, Bozeman 0 BRISTOL — Bozeman faced Liberty County in the District 4-1A final for the second straight year. And just like in 2012, the Bucks were the victims of a no-hitter. It was Hayden Swier’s turn this year, as he had two strikeouts and three walks. Bozeman also had a batter reach on an error. The Bucks (17-9) had base runners on second and third in the first inning and another on third in the fourth, but were unable to make a dent in the outcome. Liberty County scored two runs in each of the first and sixth innings, each charged to starter and loser Reed Ruddick. He had three strikeouts and gave up five hits. Brandon Suttles pitched to three batters without recording an out and Michael Cullen finished up for Bozeman. The Bucks will travel to the winner of Sneads-Vernon in the regional semifinal May 7. Bozeman also started on the road last season and advanced to the state semifinals before falling to Holmes County. “We’ve been on this side of it so hopefully we can draw on our experience,” Bozeman coach Jeff Patton said. “We need to find some toughness with the bats, but we’ll have a say. We’ll do better.”

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott showed his appreciation for Florida’s teachers and applauded their commitment to improving Florida’s education system by presenting the Governor’s Shine Award to six 2013-14 District Teachers of the Year last week. “Florida teachers are the hardest working teachers in the world — and our students’ results demonstrate their success,” said Scott. “Thanks to Florida’s great teachers, Florida students are competing and succeeding, both nationally and internationally, and that’s why it’s so important we reward classroom teachers with a $2,500 pay raise.” The six 2013-14 District Teachers of the Year winners invited to today’s meeting come from Escambia, Jefferson, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Taylor and Walton counties. “Every day you help Florida’s students realize their potential, fulfill their dreams and embark on challenging journeys toward college and successful careers,” said Governor Scott to the teachers in attendance. “Florida’s strong, effective teachers give students an advantage in today’s competitive environment. I am proud to present the Governor’s Shine Award to teachers who go above and beyond to make a difference in education.” The participating 2013-14 District Teachers of the Year included: • Susan Rigby, Escambia County, Pine Forest High School: Rigby has been teaching for 13 years and currently teaches ninth-grade mathematics at Pine Forest High School. Rigby attributes her passion for teaching to her student’s success in the classroom. “My students see my passion for teaching every day. I believe in them. I care about them. This has changed their attitude about math and learning. They believe in themselves,” Rigby said. • Nicole Roddenberry, Jefferson County, Jefferson Elementary School: “If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn,” is a saying first-grade teacher Roddenberry holds close to her heart. “My teaching style is one that is engaging, interactive and challenging. I implement differentiated instruction so that each student is challenged at their own level,” Roddenberry said. • Heather Erickson-Vaughn, Okaloosa County, Elliott Point Elementary School; Erickson-Vaughn has been teaching for eight years and is currently a kindergarten teacher at Elliot Point Elementary School, where she fosters an environment of love and respect in her classroom. “In my

classroom we love and respect each other and we never hold each other back. The encouragement and support that we all have for each other is what inspires my students to want to learn,” said Erickson-Vaughn. • Elizabeth “Ann” Thompson, Santa Rosa County, West Navarre Intermediate School: “My students and I create a classroom family,” said Thompson, who teaches third grade at Navarre Intermediate School. “We respect differences and celebrate the successes of each individual in our family. We learn with each other and most importantly from each other. As my students learn to respect and support one another, they gain respect for themselves,” Thompson said. • Meridith Upshaw, Taylor County, Taylor County Elementary School: Upshaw has been teaching for eight years and currently teaches third grade at Taylor County Elementary School. She brings joy and laughter to her classroom and believes this environment encourages her students. “I feel that through laughter bonds can be built that enables me to reach all learners. We learn to laugh at our mistakes and try again,” Upshaw said. “We offer support and encouragement to each other. We truly build a family and unique support system.” • Melissa DiCesare, Walton County, South Walton High School: DiCesare has been teaching for 15 years and is currently teaching AP English language arts to 11th and 12th grade students at South Walton High School. “My students become intrinsically motivated because I consistently project my passion for literature and language each day, each class period,” said DiCesare. “Purposeful instruction combined with rigor in a highly efficient, welcoming environment is powerful. Rules and regulations are simultaneously followed because students are on task, motivated and confident, anticipating with zeal what is to come next,” said DiCesare. Each of Florida’s 67 school districts selects a Teacher of the Year, who is then considered for statewide recognition. The Florida Teacher of the Year is chosen from more than 180,000 public school teachers throughout the state by a selection committee representing teachers, principals, parents and the business community. Florida’s top educator is selected on the basis of the superior ability to teach and communicate knowledge of the subject taught, professional development, philosophy of teaching, and outstanding school and community service. The most important qualification is the teacher’s ability to inspire a love of learning in students of all backgrounds and abilities.

As mission grows, number of missionaries increases By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — For almost 12 years David Lauen, associate pastor and minister of music of the First Baptist Church of Bonifay, has been leading mission trips to Honduras, but this year will be the biggest trip by far. “Since 2001, we’ve been making trips to Honduras, and we’ve average between six to 30 volunteers. This time we’re taking 60,” Lauen said. “With a group from Marianna, we’ve got enough people to be known as the Florida Panhandle Team.” One project they are in the process of completing is building a hospital, which is 10 years in the making. “When we first got started, it was a 50-foot by 100-foot hospital, then we added another 50-foot by 100-foot wing, and then Samaritan’s Purse donated thousands for four state of the art operating rooms, and it just keeps growing,” Lauen said. “We’ve got over 26 surgical teams to donate their time and services. As the facility grows wonderful equipment is donated to fill it.” Last year, they mixed and poured 11 concrete floors for eight houses. “They were living on dirt floors and every time it rained they would have water running through the house,” Lauen said. “Now they can have dry floors.” An ongoing mission is to bring clean water to the resident’s homes. “Their water system is pathetic, like most third-world countries,” he said. “We’re trying to lay out PVC pipes to put faucets at these houses. Last time, we were able to bring them a 10,000 gallon water tank to help supply clean water.” He said even though it has been quite a bit of hard work, it was worth it. “It is exciting,” Lauen said. “We take a lot for granted in this country and have a lot to be thankful for. This is a life changing trip for some.” Lauen said the group will hold a fundraiser starting at 10:30 a.m. on May 10 on the Cook’s Corner at the intersection of Highway 79 and Highway 90, where they will be selling rib-eye steak dinners for $10, which will include green beans, new potatoes, bread and cake. All proceeds will go to purchasing medical supplies for the Honduran hospital. The group will be leaving for Honduras on June 15. For more information, visit


Volunteers mix the concrete for the 11 floors they poured in eight houses. Before the missionaries arrived, the floors in the houses were dirt, and when it rained, it was very muddy.

Florida Panhandle Team volunteers are sorting supplies and bags of items to give to the children of the families that they will minister to with the Water and Feeding Ministry. The team gives out beans and rice to the families in the poorer sections of Guaimaca, Honduras.

After all, when you are reason wives have the ability to read watching a ballgame, who has time three or four chapters ahead.

long as it was a good game. Now, to find out that my heroes, if you can call them such, were primarily interested in money was disheartening. I have never been able to watch a game since with the same excitement I did before. Why can’t we just have fun? Why does life have to be such a battle? Why can’t we have a baseball game just for the fun of it? Recently, I attended a baseball game at the local high school. I thought I would just go and enjoy the game. I did not know any of the players; I just wanted to enjoy the game. Then I met an unfamiliar phenomenon of high school baseball. Parents of baseball players! The game started as normal but soon the air exploded with shouting and yelling in the stands. I did not quite understand what all the noise was about at the time. Two women, imagine that, got in a fistfight over the ballgame! They were mothers of two of the players on opposite teams. That was just the beginning of the shouting and the yelling that afternoon. As I walked away, I sadly shook my head and said to myself, “Why can’t we just have fun?” I believe the Preacher in the book of Ecclesiastes explains it well. “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit” (Ecclesiastes 1:14 KJV). Some are so caught up in the vanity and vexations of life that they never know what it is like to just enjoy life. Why can’t we just have a little bit of fun? Rev. James L.
