Water/sewer project ready for phase 2 By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — Bonifay City Council approved paying $34,000 on Monday for an engineering design fee to go into the second phase of the city’s on-going sewer/ water line replacement and

update project. Shakil Amin, a representative from Hatch Mott MacDonald, said the city was ready to go into phase two of the replacement and update project. Phase two includes laying 14,000 feet of six-inch linear pipe, paid for with a $600,000 Community De-

velopment Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “There are no matching funds required,” Bonifay City Grant Writer Bob Jones said. “With the city purchasing the engineering design fee, it gives the city considerable points towards the grant.”

Council Member Richard Woodham requested something be done about the water park at Middlebrooks Park, which is no longer working. “We need to call the manufacturer and see about getting an estimate on how much it’ll cost to fix it,” Woodham said. “The


kids are missing it, and it’s getting hot.” Jones suggested getting a grant to repair it, and in the meantime, the city should calculate the cost to bypass computer programming and operate it manually until then.

Entering into week three of the Holmes County Public Library’s summer reading program, local children were entertained and educated by the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth about the history of Florida, which is following the continued theme of Viva Florida, celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida. The Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth also involved the children in their production, and in this scene the children were recruited as members of a crew to establish the first and failed settlement in Pensacola. For more photos and the full story, see Page B1.

BONIFAY — Lead instructor and owner of Impact Firearms Curtis Porter was the guest speaker at this week’s Bonifay Kiwanis Club meeting on June 19, and he spoke on the importance of gun safety. “Two of the most dangerous people are those who have a gun and don’t know how to use it and those who have a gun and think they do know how to use it,” Porter said. “It is an unfortunate reality that there is violence happening everywhere. It’s our job to take those who want to defend themselves out and teach them what they need to know. The more training you get, the better off you’re going to be.” Impact Firearms uses a range courtesy of the Holmes County Sheriff ’s Office, Porter said. “Sheriff Tim Brown allows us to use their range,” he said. “That’s a big deal when a sheriff is that invested in the safety and well-being of the people he serves and protects. We’re here to do anything we can do to help you better protect yourself and advise you on your next gun purchase and concealed weapon permit.” Porter said some would be surprised at the number of residents in Holmes County who have a concealed weapon permits.

BONIFAY from page A1 The council agreed to get an assessment before proceeding further. Mayor Lawrence Cloud requested City Attorney Lucas Taylor get the county building inspector to look at and possibly condemn the Kevin Fleming building on the corner of Waukesha Street and Virginia Avenue. After confirming the building was the old Neptune World pet shop, Taylor agreed to do some research and bring a suggestion back at the next meeting. Taylor also reported he spoke with the attorney heading the BP Oil Settlement and informed the council they would not be eligible because they were not awarding anything to government entities. After much debate about the possible settlement being given to other local government entities, Taylor agreed to look further into the matter and bring it before the council at the next meeting at 6 p.m. on July 8 at the Bonifay City Hall.

Caryville man arrested on porn charges From Staff Reports


CHIPLEY — A Caryville man was arrested on charges of porn distribution, according to a Washington County Sheriff ’s Office report. Matthew Thomas McCarthy, 21, of Caryville

was charged with three counts of distributing obscene materials to minors. The sheriff ’s office was alerted to the incident by a neighbor of the victims, who observed pornographic materials being displayed while

During the search, investigators said they found several pornographic DVDs described by the victims as the ones they had viewed, according to the report. McCarthy is being held at the Washington County Jail.

GUN SAFETY from page A1 “The law is complicated on where you are permitted to have a concealed weapon, but there’s a simple way of breaking it down,� he said. “No government buildings, which include schools, post offices, city councils, board of county commissioners, etc. and any bars where they sell alcoholic beverages. Now if this is a restaurant with a bar you can be in the restaurant but you can’t be any where near the bar.� He said 33 states recognize the Florida concealed weapon permit and the states closest to Florida that do not are Illinois and Nevada. “My biggest concern is anything to have to do with Alabama, especially Dothan, Ala.,� Porter said. “They have what’s considered a concealed firearms permit and only recognize Florida’s permit if you are in possession of a firearm. If you have a concealed weapons permit and a gun, you are safe in Alabama; however, if you have a pocket knife with a blade over three inches, you will be arrested, and trust me they are looking for Florida state tags and any excuse imaginable.� Porter also touched on ammunition safety, saying

CECILIA SPEARS | Times-Advertiser

Curtis Porter, Lead Instructor and Owner of Impact Firearms in Bonifay, was the guest speaker at Bonifay Kiwanis Club meeting on June 19. ammunition kept in a cool and climate controlled environment could stay good for years, however ammunition in a concealed weapon in a vehicle or left in the chamber of the gun should be replaced every year for new ammunition, and if there’s any discoloration then the ammunition should be disposed because

the casing has been compromised, and it could lead to the gun exploding when attempting to fire it. “We get quite a few people from other counties because we are one of the few places that care,� Porter said. “We’re not just in it for the money. We want to make sure you know how to shoot,

and we want to make sure you learn something.� Classes are a standard fee of $75 plus ammunition and are held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, however, times will change for summer because of the heat. For more information, contact Impact Firearms at 547-2051.

These buses are also longer; sitting an additional eight students per bus, which is needed for growth that we’ve been seeing in Holmes County.� Board also approved of a 4.9 percent base salary increase for all instructional and noninstructional employees. “I wanted to say that I went to Mobile, Ala., and watched

our BETA Clubs perform,� said Board member Shirley Owens. “They have put a lot of hard work and dedication into their performances, and some of them placed very well. I’m very proud of them.� The next meeting of the Holmes County District School Board will be held at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, July 2 at the Holmes County District School Board office at 701 East Pennsylvania Ave., Bonifay.

SCHOOLS from page A1 Dixon said he was very positive of the project’s success to bring these muchneeded schools to the area. “We’ve gone over every possible positive aspect and impact these new schools will bring to our ever-growing area,� Dixon said. “For example, there’s the possibility of a new water tower for the school that would have a positive impact on the surrounding residents. This


is a very beneficial endeavor, and I have a strong inclination that it will be positively received.� The board approved of the purchase of 11 new school buses under the contract agreement that it is paid through the Ebro Greyhound Park. “We’ve had this contract with Ebro for over 29 years, and they have always been faithful in keeping that contract,� Dixon said. “It has

Nationally known speaker David Ring will be speaking at the Bonifay sing. Born in Jonesboro, Ark., David was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes at birth leaving him with cerebral palsy. Orphaned at the age of 14 after both parents died of cancer, he was cast from family to family with nowhere to call home. He endured constant physical pain, humiliating public ridicule and constant discouragement, yet he chose to be victorious rather than a victim. After surrendering his heart and life to Jesus Christ, he learned self-respect and acceptance of his physical challenges. To most, physical challenges of this magnitude would prove to be a tombstone.

were Austin F. Townsend, Walker Hughen, Henry Hargrove, V. J. Collins, Andrew (Andy) Griffin and Farrell Nelson. Now days, we depend upon prison inmate labor to do the grass cutting and landscaping of the grounds at the Agriculture Center in preparation for the yearly festival. In earlier times, Maxwell Hudson, an employee of the county, had those duties, plus other details of carrying out the massive custodial chores of staging the festival, plus the clean up that followed. He was fortunate to have a young family, mostly girls, whom he enlisted to assist him in the task of carrying out the watermelon festival. They were not paid for their labors, and it has been my privilege to personally thank them for their voluntary and faithful assistance so many years ago. The brochure advertising the watermelon festival in 1978 and 1979 was printed on a legal size sheet of colorful paper. It was personally typed in the Agriculture Center Office and duplicated on copy machine available at that time. Later, the advertising flyers were more professionally printed and folded for easy handling and for mailing. This style of promoting the festival returned to the full length, legal size paper in 2003, when advertising was sold for the first time to businesses, lending agencies, and others in

This is the year that we hired the IBMA Entertainer of the Year, The Del McCoury Band, which produced a record turnout in the air conditioned auditorium for a stellar concert that is still being talked about to this day. Dr. Shane Collins, of WPAP Radio Fame in Panama City, was the MC for this mammoth year of top entertainment. As chairman, I told the committee that I was not ready to make public the price required to attract this popular bluegrass/ bluegrass gospel group to our festival. After it went well, and with

ample money to pay all the expenses of the event, the figure of $10,000 was revealed. For the past seven years, this figure pales to the total expenditures of $35,000 now required to attract and pay all the top quality entertainment that the present leadership continues to bring to the historic watermelon festival. Where can you receive a full weekend of fabulous talent, performing free and in an air conditioned facility, with organizers furnishing free slices of delicious, sweet and cool watermelon for you the visitor to enjoy? A new style, colorful promotional flyer was introduced by the current chairman this year. A

broader coverage with the watermelon festival’s own web page has produced over 220,000 “hits” with the festival more than a week away, according to Chairman Colby Peel. Entertainment and wholesome fun and festivities is the order of the two day event, June 28 and 29, 2013 and I hope all of you are making plans to attend.

Auditor focuses on Wausau water department By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT WAUSAU — An audit of Wausau’s finances shows the town’s finances are improving, but the water department is working on a very tight budget. Hilton Galloway of the CPA firm Carr, Riggs & Ingram LLC of Enterprise, Ala., told the Town Council Thursday the town showed $75,000 in assets and $32,000 in deficits for a balance of $42,000 in unassigned funds.

loway said. The water department revenues covered the department’s expenses, but just barely. Wausau’s financial health hinges on the performance of its water department. “The town has so much wrapped up in assets; you need to address that,� Galloway said. “I understand you raised water rates last year, and you will need to address that again this year. You cannot go to sleep on the water department.� Rate increases will help keep the balance sheets in the black, but Mayor BJ Phillips said he hopes the town can get ahead to the point it doesn’t have to

raise rates every year. The town received grants last year that inflated the 2012 revenue streams. “It’s hard to put your arms around the figures of 2012 and get a real good idea of what you really had,� Galloway said. The water department ended the year with a $183 deficit, which Galloway said was “not enough to say or do anything about.� With the current rates, the water department is taking in just enough to operate. “Eventually, you are going to need to make repairs, or buy equipment,� Galloway said. “That is when you will really need to have some reserves in

the water department.� The auditor recommended the council members remain diligent. “You have to be cognizant of what the water department is doing each month,� Galloway said. “You almost have the perfect storm in operating by taking in just exactly what you need to operate the system.� City Clerk Margaret Riley also presented the council with an advertisement for approval. The town will be searching for a new city clerk, and Riley suggested they begin advertising as soon as possible for her replacement. Riley announced her in-

Fish found belly-up By BOB WATTENDORF

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

Bay scallop season starts July 1 Special to Halifax Media It’s that time of year again to unfurl the dive flag, put a mask on and head to the coast to collect some bay scallops. The recreational season is open in Gulf of Mexico state waters (shore to 9 nautical miles) from the Pasco-Hernando county line to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County starting July 1. The season will remain open through Sept. 24, with the first day of the closure on Sept. 25. The bag limit is two gallons of whole bay scallops or one pint of meat per person, per day, with a vessel limit of 10 gallons of whole bay scallops or a half-gallon of meat. Scallops may be collected by hand or with a landing or dip net. Scallops cannot be taken ashore outside of the open area. There is no commercial harvest for bay scallops in Florida state and federal waters. The average number of scallops observed during pre-season surveys doubled in Homosassa and St. Joseph Bay and increased

slightly in Steinhatchee. The St. Marks average decreased substantially from June 2012, which was most likely due to effects from Tropical Storm Debby. Be safe when diving for scallops. Be sure to stay within 300 feet of a properly displayed divers-down flag when scalloping in open water and within 100 feet of a properly displayed divers-down flag if on a river, inlet or navigation channel. Boat operators traveling within 300 feet of a divers-down flag in open water or 100 feet of one on a river, inlet or navigational channel must slow to idle speed. Done for the day? Help FWC’s scallop researchers by completing an online survey at bayscallops. Harvesters can indicate where they harvest scallops, how many they collect and how long it takes to harvest them. Participants can email to ask questions or send additional information. Learn more by visiting and clicking on “Saltwater,” “Recreational Regulations” and “Bay Scallops.”

HOLMES COUNTY — Recently, north Florida anglers and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) fishery biologists were heartbroken to see the white bellies of numerous fish floating in Lake Victor. Lake Victor is a popular, 130-acre FWC-managed impoundment in Holmes County. Since the impoundment was constructed, the FWC has stocked fish, managed vegetation, provided boating access, created fish attractors and spawning beds and otherwise strove to create quality fishing. So, what happened, and could it happen to a lake near you? Unfortunately, it seems like a case of nature taking its course and, yes, it happens throughout the state each summer. In this case, it appears that heavy rainfalls flushed organic matter into the lake and the organic matter began to decompose, resulting in a low-dissolved-oxygen (DO) fish kill. As in most such cases, the die-off did not kill all of the fish, and when the water cleared and the sun came out, oxygen levels recovered and biologists observed numerous surviving fish. This type of fish kill is pretty much a natural occurrence. They are especially prevalent in summer, when a number of factors can come together to deplete the oxygen that is dissolved in the water. Fish absorb this oxygen from the water using their gills. A healthy lake or river normally has approximately 7 to 9 parts per million (ppm) of oxygen, which is an ideal level for most fish. When the water temperature is lower, more oxygen dissolves into it. When temperatures rise, DO levels naturally drop due to reduced solubility. If the level drops below 5 ppm, many fish start showing adverse impacts, and below 2 ppm it can be lethal, if it lasts very long. Some species of fish are better adapted to low DO conditions, such as bowfin or gar, but most of our freshwater sunfishes (bass, bream, and crappie) are less tolerant. Aquatic plants produce most of the oxygen in lakes through photosynthesis, which occurs when green (chlorophyll) cells convert light into energy. However, at night or when there is inadequate light, plants use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Additional oxygen enters the water from the atmosphere by diffusion. In addition to fish using oxygen and plants removing it at night, a major


Numerous fish turned up dead on Lake Victor recently. demand on oxygen comes from decomposition of dead plant and animal tissue (organic matter). Area residents first contacted the FWC about the fish kill in Lake Victor on April 17, after seeing dying fish floating. Fisheries biologists responded immediately and determined the DO level in much of the lake with pea-green water was 0.0 to 2.0 ppm, enough to cause the kill. Often, descriptions of lakes being pea-green relate to algal blooms, which are another insidious response to nutrients (decaying plant material, or organic fertilizers flushed from yards or crops by rain). These blooms block light to rooted plants so they do not produce as much oxygen. When algae die, they further increase the bacterial bloom. Biologists visited daily for several weeks, documenting the number of dead fish and concluded that few adult game fish survived. However, they observed some schools of fingerling bass and bream from the spring spawn and a few bass on beds. “We know there was over 19 inches of rain in the area from January to April, and the lake got its share of rain and runoff,” said Chris Paxton, the FWC’s freshwater fisheries administrator for northwest Florida. He said the FWC was in constant contact with the Florida Department of Health and the Department of Environ-

mental Protection and that FWC staff accompanied investigators from the Department of Agriculture to inspect the lake during the fish kill. There was no visual evidence of chemical pollution, toxic algal blooms or signs of disease among the dead fish. “This is something all of us, including the residents around the lake and our own fisheries management staff, wish never happened but in time the lake will recover,” Paxton said. Once oxygen levels build back up, the FWC will restock the lake with fingerling sport fish. Bream and crappie populations can respond within one to two years but it may take three to four years for significant bass populations to rebuild. FWC biologists will monitor the lake and consider all fisheries management tools that may quicken the lake’s recovery. The good news is there is no evidence of any form of contamination that would prevent the lake from recovering. In addition, reduced competition often allows young sport fish to grow rapidly after kills of this type.

Gag grouper recreational harvest opens in most Gulf waters; closes in Spearfishing to be allowed in Collier County state waters starting June 30 4-county region Special to Halifax Media Gag grouper will open for recreational harvest in most Gulf of Mexico state waters and all Gulf federal waters July 1. The same day, the season will close in state waters off the coast of Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties. The gag grouper recreational harvest season in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters, not including Franklin, Jefferson, Wakulla, Taylor and Monroe counties, will remain open through Dec. 3. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties were open from April 1 through June 30 and will not be open during the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season. Monroe County is also excluded from the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season because it is included in the Atlantic rules for gag grouper. Gag grouper caught in federal waters during the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season may be taken ashore

in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. (See maps.) The four-county region includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. The FWC manages marine fish from the shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico. The FWC is working with Florida’s anglers to rebuild gag grouper populations in the Gulf of Mexico back to strong, sustainable levels. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits are 22 inches total length and two gag grouper per person. To learn more, visit and click on “Saltwater,” “Recreational Regulations” and “Gulf Grouper.”

Special to Halifax Media Starting June 30, saltwater species can be targeted with a spearing device in Collier County state waters for the first time in more than 60 years. The recent repeal of rules that prohibited spearing should facilitate the harvest of nonnative invasive lionfish that are negatively impacting Florida’s native fish and wildlife. Spearfishing is among the most effective methods for lionfish control and removal, along with the use of hand-held nets. These changes were approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at its April meeting when Commissioners repealed a rule that prohibited spearing and another rule that prohibited using an artificial light while spearfishing or gigging in Florida state

waters off Collier County (from shore to 9 nautical miles). The Collier Board of County Commissioners sent a letter to the FWC in February requesting these repeals shortly after the Jan. 13 hook-andline capture of the first lionfish to be documented in state waters off the county. The ban on spearing and using a light while spearfishing or gigging was put in place in the early 1950s, before the development of current statewide spearfishing regulations, and are just a few of the many Special Acts of Local Application that were put in place by the Florida Legislature, prior to creation of the FWC and one of its predecessors, the Marine Fisheries Commission. All current statewide regulations on the use of spears will apply in state waters off Collier County. Spearing is not allowed in freshwater or when

targeting freshwater species; within 100 yards of a public swimming beach, any commercial or public fishing pier or any part of a bridge from which public fishing is allowed; within 100 feet of any part of a jetty that is above the water’s surface except for the last 500 yards of a jetty that extends more than 1,500 yards from the shoreline; in Monroe County from Long Key north to the Dade County line; and in any body of water under the jurisdiction of the Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Recreation and Parks. Using powerheads, bangsticks and rebreathers is also not allowed. The following species cannot be speared: billfish, spotted eagle ray, sturgeon, manta ray, sharks, bonefish, tarpon, goliath grouper, snook, blue crab, Nassau grouper, spotted seatrout, red drum, weakfish, stone crab, pompano, African

pompano, permit, tripletail, lobster and many species of ornamental tropical fish such as surgeonfish, trumpetfish, angelfish, butterflyfish, porcupinefish, cornetfish, squirrelfish, trunkfish, damselfish, parrotfish, pipefish, seahorse, puffers and triggerfish, with the exception of gray and ocean triggerfish. A recreational fishing license is not required for anyone targeting lionfish with hand-held nets, a pole spear, a Hawaiian sling or any spearing device that is specifically designed for harvesting lionfish. All other spearfishers must have a recreational fishing license, unless otherwise exempt from the requirement, and all regulations apply, including seasons, bag limits and size limits.

Young volleyball players sweep older competition By JASON SHOOT Halifax Media

PANAMA CITY BEACH — Sisters they are not, but Eden Hawes and Casey Justice swear they can read each other’s mind. “We call it twin telepathy even though we aren’t related and don’t look alike,� Justice said. The teenagers clearly enjoy some kind cerebral connection on the court as a highly successful beach volleyball team. They’ve collected five tournament titles and a pristine 33-0 record since March, many of those victories recorded against players considerably older. They are set to travel to the west coast next month and will compete in a pair of tournaments, most notably the AAU Junior Olympic Beach Volleyball Championships in Hermosa Beach, Calif., on July 27-30. Justice is 14 and Hawes is 13. The girls, both of whom are 5-foot-6, are enrolling at Arnold as freshmen in the fall. They still can count on one hand the number of years they’ve been playing volleyball. But their progression in the sport has been remarkable, particularly since they didn’t team up on the beach until two years ago. Hawes and Justice have dominated every event they’ve entered this year. They were crowned 18U champions in a local junior tournament in May, won the 14-under title at an AAU tournament in Orlando, claimed the 16U championship at the Gulf Coast Region Tournament, and won the doubles title in the 16U age group in a Fudpuckers tournament. They even slipped in a four-man title at that Fudpuckers event. “We were at a camp in Tampa and got a lot of questions like, ‘How old are you?’ and ‘How long have you been playing to-


Casey Justice, left, and Eden Hawes are 33-0 since March in five tournament victories. gether?’ said Hawes, who turns 14 next month. “We’ve been playing together two years. We try to play older teams. That’s what (three-time Olympic champion) Kerri Walsh did. That’s what we try to do.� Confirmed Arnold coach and athletic

director Karisa Wesley: “They’re actually very advanced. ... They went to Orlando and went to the 14-under division and beat everyone very easily. They try to play up a level for the competition.� Hawes has been selected to participate

in the USA Volleyball Beach High Performance Program, an intensive program intended to develop players for collegiate and international play. Hawes will train with a select group of 15U players from across the nation, and she will head to California next month for that before pairing up with Justice again at junior nationals. “I am very jealous,� quipped Justice, who narrowly missed the age cutoff for the elite program. “I’ll be lonely,� Hawes added, trying to console her friend. “By the fourth day I think maybe I’ll have a friend or two.� Justice and Hawes admitted that if they were given a choice, they would prefer to play under the sun on a sand court rather than under the lights indoors. “When you’re indoors you have to stay in your little space,� Justice said. Rest assured, though, they will suit up for Arnold next season. Wesley said she is “looking at them on the varsity level.� “They love the game,� Wesley said. “They walk into the gym and go pick up a ball. We’ve been doing morning workouts at 7 a.m., there’s an open gym, there’s beach training. They do all of that in one day. They are absolutely in love with volleyball whether it’s beach or indoors.� Wesley said the two young players can expect to grow in coming years, both in terms of height and development. Justice and Hawes said they train on the sand with local beach player Kevin Jones. “Kids have dreams, and right now their dream is to play beach volleyball at the college level,� Wesley said. “They work with the beach coach at Florida State (assistant coach Brian Corso). They’ve got exposure at the collegiate level and with those coaches as well.�

Local players go to Major League Baseball Halifax Media Group Prospects from the high school, junior college and Division I baseball levels highlighted the area selections in the Major League Baseball Draft on June 8. Karsten Whitson was selected for the second time since departing Chipley. He was taken No. 9 overall by San Diego in 2010, but he turned down a reported $2.1 million signing bonus and attended Florida, where he had a stellar freshman season on the mound. Inconsistency plagued him his sophomore year and he missed last season after having shoulder surgery. Whitson was taken by Washington in the 37th round. He likely will return to Florida for a redshirt junior season. Gulf Coast’s Tyler Dial was the first selection with area ties on the final day, going to San Diego in the 15th round and 448th overall. He joined teammate Tevin Johnson, who was chosen in the 31st round by Pittsburgh. Logan Quimuyog was the lone area high-schooler taken Saturday. The Mosley graduate was taken by the New York Mets in the 39th and next-to-last round. Former Chipola star and Florida State closer Robby Coles rounded out the area picks with a 28th-round selection by the Mets. Coles joined teammates Peter Miller (Los Angeles Dodgers), Marcus Davis (San Diego) and Scott Sitz (Detroit) as third-day draftees. Other Gators selected were Taylor Ratliff (Arizona), John Magliozzi (New York Mets), Cody Dent (Washington) and Jeff Driskel (Boston). Area MLB Draft selections: Tyler Dial (Gulf Coast), San Diego, 15th round (448th overall) Robby Coles (Chipola, Florida State), New York Mets, 28th round (836th) Tevin Johnson (Gulf Coast), Pittsburgh, 31st round (929th)

Garden Club takes on marker project BONIFAY — Each 4th of July we celebrate our freedom. Members of the Bonifay Garden Club, Peggy La Plante, Eileen Wright, DiAnn Shores, Susan Pittman, Carla Templeton, and Garden Club President, Adonna Bartlett, took on project to spruce up the garden around the Blue Star Memorial marker, located on Hwy 90. Jack Marell, Superintendent with City of Bonifay has been very instrumental in helping with the project. The Memorial honors those who have served and are currently serving in the military, to help protect our freedom. From our first troops who fought to help America gain independence from England in the 1700s, to our present-day troops serving. “We appreciate the sacrifices our military make to help keep us, a free, democratic country.� Adonna Bartlett,

President of the Bonifay Garden Club said, “with the placement of this Blue Star Memorial Marker and the added attention to the garden around the marker, we hope, will help to increase awareness of the Memorial and of the importance it plays to our military who play a role in defending our country and our rights as a democratic nation.� The garden club most recently added knock- out roses, purple lantana and a mix of other annuals and perennials. Along with the existing Natchez white crape myrtles the color tapestry will be colors of red, white and blue. National Garden Clubs, Inc. has placed Blue Star Markers� in all 50 states to honor our armed forces. These markers are metal plaques that have a blue star at the top and the words “A Tribute to the Armed Forces of America� inscribed below the star. All honor is due them, who defend us from aggression, and help preserve our freedom.

They stand ready at a moments notice to defend our Country. We must not forget them, and we do not. We remember with every step of the Honor Guard at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We remember with every drumbeat on the Fourth of July. We pledge allegiance to our flag and We remember. At the sound of Reveille, we remember, and as the last lingering note of Taps resounds in the distance, we remember.

CHIPLEY — Leverage is dividing up work to get greater results — and leverage is a tool the average small business owner can use in his own working life, said certified business coach Mark Raciappa. Raciappa is a business coach with ActionCOACH of Tallahassee, and he was the guest speaker at Thursday’s Washington County Chamber of Commerce meeting. Small business owners tend to work harder and longer hours than most people, and they also tend to work more than their employees, Raciappa said. Having employees to whom tasks can be delegated can go a long way toward improving the quality of life for a business owner or supervisor. “There are a lot of definitions of success, but health and happiness are two of the most important,� Raciappa

said. Dividing up work not only multiplies the results, it frees up the business owner or supervisor to have free time to enjoy life. “When you reach a milestone, even a small one, you should celebrate it,� Raciappa said. That goes for business as well as life, and while supervisors may be quick to compliment or praise an employee, they should also be able to commend themselves on a job well done.� Raciappa will present a seminar for Chamber members from 9 to 11 a.m. July 17 at the Northwest Florida Community Hospital Specialty Center, and attendance is free for members. One of the topics will be Raciappa’s SYSTEM, an acronym for Saving You Stress Time Energy and Money. “Leverage is all about SYSTEM,� Raciappa said. The program is based on Bradley Sugars’ book “Instant Systems,� which “educates entrepreneurs on the benefits of systemizing work processes within their businesses so

“Because of increased U.S. military activity during the last few years, garden clubs throughout the nation have added more Blue Star Markers to show our troops we support their efforts and appreciate their sacrifices. This program has been active through the years — a fitting tribute always and especially now. To date, over 3,000 markers have been placed by garden clubs throughout the U.S. The Bonifay Garden Club has been in active membership since 1951, coming to the close of their 62nd year of continuous membership. The club meets September through May on the second Friday of each month. Interesting programs and pilgrimages are scheduled throughout the year. The club has sponsored beautification efforts throughout the city. For more information on the club and its activities, email Adonna Bartlett, incoming president at adonna.

that the enterprises can function without the direct interference of the business owner,� according to the website Sugars is a business coach, author and CEO of ActionCOACH, which is “the world’s number one business and executive coaching firm — home to more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries,� according to the website. “Focus on making one improvement in your life a week,� Raciappa said. “A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. If you make one goal a week, even a small one, and you do that every week, there’s no limit to how far you can go. You’ll be amazed.� Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett also invited members from Holmes and Jackson County chambers to attend the seminar. “We need to be more interactive and support each others’ events,� Everett said.

In 1944, the New Jersey State Council of Garden Clubs voted to beautify a stretch of U.S. Highway 22 with 8,000 dogwood trees in memory of American servicemen and women who had given their lives to protect our country during World War I and World War II. The Legislature of New Jersey voted to name this piece of highway Blue Star Drive in honor of the blue star banners flown in so many windows during both world wars. In 1945, National Council of Garden Clubs, Inc. chose to adopt New Jersey’s Blue Star Drive as a national project. They changed the name to Blue Star Memorial Highway Project and began placing Blue Star Memorial Highway Markers along highways across America. The area around each plaque was landscaped by the garden club sponsoring the memorial. Thus began a “ribbon of living memorial

Begun in 1945, this program is one of the longest-running projects sponsored by National Garden Clubs, Inc. Unfortunately, many are not aware of the story behind, why, there are Blue Star Memorial Markers. Use of blue stars to honor our military began during World War I when Army Capt. Robert Queissner designed a rectangular banner 9 inches wide and 14 inches long. The banner had a white field, red border and two blue stars in the center representing his two sons who were fighting in the war. He hung the banner in his front window where passers-by could see it and remember his sons and their dedication to keeping America free. His idea of honoring military family members serving in the war with a blue star banner soon caught on. By World War II, the blue star banner was hung in thousands of windows across America. If a family member was killed, the blue star was

Local children followed the adventures of a married couple as they vacationed to Florida only find themselves in adventures reliving the history of Florida during the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth’s production held at the Holmes County Public Library on June 20.

Living history Children celebrate Viva Florida with Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — Children were entertained, educated and participated in the adventures of a married couple visiting Florida on vacation in a production presented by the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth in honor of Viva Florida, celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida, which was held at the Holmes County Public Library during its third week of their summer reading program on June 20. The scene was on a beach in Florida, and as this vacationing couple tried to get ready to enjoy the beach, they came upon a treasure chest filled with ancient artifacts that when worn would transform them into famous characters who were important in the history of the discovery and establishment of Florida. Children of all ages were pulled into participating in song and role as the history of Florida was played out for them on stage. “I thought it was absolutely the most amazing show we’ve had in years,” assistant director Ann Leavins said. “The children loved it. Both the younger and the older children were enthralled from beginning to end because it was both historical and fun.” Leavins said the husband and wife duo have had the business of the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth for more than 16 years and were called on by the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs to develop this program especially for Viva Florida. “They write their own scripts and do over a year of research before ever putting on a production,” Leavins said. “I was amazed about how much I learned about Florida. Like for instance, I thought St. Augustine was the oldest settlement in Florida and come to find out it’s the oldest surviving settlement in Florida. Even the story about where the legend of Pocahontas came from was a first for me, and I enjoyed every minute of it.”

After placing Juan Ponce de Leon’s helmet on his head, the husband of the vacationing couple turned into Juan Ponce de Leon, who spoke of his many adventures and his search for gold. The couple was able to learn of Ponce de Leon’s adventures as an explorer after finding a scrap book of Florida’s history and the helmet of Juan Ponce de León.

unconditional love of a pet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People in nursing homes usually face a lot of physical challenges, and having a pet live with them is not an option,â&#x20AC;? said Kit Darling, infection control coordinator at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science (CVM). â&#x20AC;&#x153;But many nursing homes now will allow personal pets to visit or may schedule pet visits with an animal-assisted therapy group.â&#x20AC;? Aggieland Pets With A Purpose, or APWAP, is a non-profit animal-assisted therapy organization. APWAP members and their pets, usually dogs or cats,

visit assisted-living and nursing home facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is always very rewarding to see a person smile or talk about their pets when one of my APWAP-certified dogs like Dexter or Daschle visits a nursing home facility,â&#x20AC;? Darling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each animal involved in APWAP has passed a temperament test and receives regular veterinary care with parasite control and vaccinations in order to be a part of the program,â&#x20AC;? Darling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is also important for the animals that visit to be healthy and clean, so all of our animals have a bath within 24 hours prior to a visit, including

having their nails filed and ears cleaned.â&#x20AC;? Some retirement communities and assistedliving facilities allow their residents to have pets live with them. In these communities, the residents usually have an apartment and must be physically able to care for their petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily needs. The pet must also be friendly toward other people and animals and should have regular visits with its veterinarian to ensure it is healthy. There may also be restrictions on the type and size of pets allowed depending on the facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having a pet can

be greatly beneficial to the health of the older population,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Karen Snowden, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science (CVM). â&#x20AC;&#x153;A pet can provide companionship and social opportunities for the elderly population, as well as physical, psychological and emotional health benefits.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;After children are grown and maybe a spouse has passed, a person may feel isolated and inessential,â&#x20AC;? Snowden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having to care for a pet provides a sense of need, and having regular interactions with a pet has shown to lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety, increase physical activity and enhance social opportunities.â&#x20AC;?

I am not what you would call a superstitious person (knock on wood). I am a realist in a modified definition of that word, and I usually take things as they come. My past week, however, DR. JAMES was an open L. SNYDER commentary Out to Pastor on Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law. Offhand, I am not quite sure who came up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week. If I had it within me, I would establish Snyderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law, which simply stated means what can go right will go right. Then all would be right with the world. Well, except for those who are left-handed. It all started Monday morning when I had an early morning meeting. I meant to set my alarm clock for 6 a.m., but for some reason I set it for 6 p.m. and overslept. Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy. In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn, and they were charging me an insufficient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed, how it happened I

will never know, I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again. It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traffic. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was pointing way beyond the E. My gas tank was about as empty as my bank account. It is bad to run out of gas, but the worst thing for me about running out of gas is calling the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and asking her for help. I would walk 100 miles not to tell her I am out of gas. She always comes and bails me out. However, for the next six months I am reminded and reminded and reminded to put gas in my tank. Thursday also had its issues. My wife wanted me to go to the store and pick up something and for some reason, I cannot remember it now, I used her car. Maybe it was because I did not want to run out of gas! I got to the store, paid for my purchase, came out and tried finding my truck. I walked up and down and my truck was nowhere in

â&#x20AC;&#x153;... Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.â&#x20AC;? Psalm 30:5 KJV

sight. The only thing I could think of at the time was that somebody had stolen my truck. I thought about calling the police, and then I thought better and decided I would call my wife first. You know what it is like when your wife hears something secondhand. And so I called her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find my truck,â&#x20AC;? I said trying to keep my voice as calm as possible not to get her upset, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think somebody stole it. Should I call the police?â&#x20AC;? Silence on the phone. Then I heard her say in a very calm voice, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever stole your truck parked it in our driveway.â&#x20AC;? I then remembered I was driving her car. I tried to chuckle within, but I knew that this incident would hang in our house for months to come and I have Mr. Murphy to thank for that. It was such a horrific week, and I was so deep in trouble with my Better Half, I decided to take her out Friday night for a nice meal on the town. I took her to her favorite restaurant, and we ordered our supper, then set back and kind of sighed the week away. Maybe all that could go wrong has gone wrong, and the week was about to turn around.

We chatted; I tried to skew the conversation away from running out of gas and misplacing my truck. Then the waitress came with our meal. I was ready to settle down, enjoy a scrumptious meal and end the week on a happy note. The waitress set my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plate in front of her, and she smiled. Then the waitress set my plate in front of me, and I freaked out. For some reason the waitress got my order mixed up with somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order and right in the middle of my plate was a pile of broccoli. The only hope I have is that it cannot get any worse than this. I think David, the psalmist, understood this when he wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;... weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morningâ&#x20AC;? (Psalm 30:5 KJV). As bad as it gets, as a Christian I have some great things to look forward to in Jesus Christ.

Washington, Holmes Counties thank Florida leaders for working to end the R-word in Florida CHIPLEY — Self-advocates in Washington-Holmes Counties are thanking Gov. Rick Scott for signing Senate Bill 142, the Intellectual Disabilities Bill, into law last week in Tallahassee. The bill, which was passed unanimously by the Florida Legislature in April, removes the phrase “mental retardation” from state statutes and replaces it with “intellectual disabilities.” The changes take effect on July 1. The Arc of Washington-Holmes and The Arc of Florida, a non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, spent three years work-

ing to pass the Intellectual Disabilities Bill. Senate Bill 142 was sponsored by Sen. Thad Altman (R-Melbourne.) The House version of the bill, House Bill 1119, was sponsored by Rep. Janet Adkins (R-Fernandina Beach.) “Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature are to be commended for taking a stand against the R-word,” said Sandy Pritchard, executive director of Arc of Washington-Holmes Counties and board member of The Arc of Florida. “This is a significant step forward in the fight to end bullying against people with intellectual disabilities.” “Mental retardation” was once considered a valid medical term, but over the years, it was twisted into a hurtful slang word

that promotes negative stereotypes of people with intellectual disabilities. The American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and American Psychiatric Association changed their official diagnoses from “mental retardation” to “intellectual disability.” Federal health, education and labor policy statutes were changed in 2010 when Congress unanimously passed and President Obama signed “Rosa’s Law.” The Social Security Administration recently announced its intent to make the change to its official “Listing of Impairments.” For more information on the End the R-word in Florida campaign, visit

annual event, more than 200 volunteers signed commitment cards to help one of the more than 50 agencies that help children. Foster has also served on the board of the Cleveland County Chamber and the legislative committee of the N.C. Press Association. He has served two stints on the vestry of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer and is a member of the Shelby Rotary Club. At The Star, he helped launch and sustain a content innovation project that earned the paper international attention. In 2007, Foster was invited to speak in Paris, France, about The Star’s forays into multimedia journalism. Foster was a 2002

Ethics Fellow with the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla., and helped write Poynter’s “Journalism without Scandal” report in 2003. A native of Lakeland, Foster began his career as a sports writer in Hickory, N.C., in 1988, after graduating from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn. He moved to The Gaston Gazette in Gastonia, N.C., in 1989 and eventually was promoted to managing editor. Foster is married to District Court Judge Anna F. (Dina) Foster, who will be resigning her seat to relocate to the panhandle. They have three children: Mary Frances, 18; Matthew, 15; and Will, 11.
