School board discusses WINGS By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — Holmes County District School Board held a short discussion about the after-school program, WINGS, during their Aug. 20 meeting. The board approved of board member Debbie Kolmetz’s request to hold a separate vote for WINGS

personnel during Superintendent Eddie Dixon’s personnel recommendation. “I don’t want to vote no to all the recommendations, just the WINGS personnel because I’m not for the WINGS program at all,” Kolmetz said. “Why are there 85 people working in the WINGS program? I know it’s a government-funded program, but it’s not free because taxpayers pay for

that program, and because of that I am totally against that program.” Dixon explained there are 85 people working in the WINGS program, but each only work a few hours per week, and the most work is done during the summer. “Why we voted on the WINGS program and why I still believe in the program now is because as a rural county we don’t have an

after-school program like those of the bigger cities,” board member Jason Motley said. “Before the WINGS program those children who needed extra time for studies just fell between the cracks, and I believe the WINGS program has been an asset to Holmes County.” The board approved of Dixon’s personnel recommendation for the WINGS program, with Kolmetz vot-

Volunteers serve as advocates, mentors for children By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — Serving as a Guardian ad Litem volunteer advocate takes not only training — it also takes an open heart and common sense, said Fred Hapner, circuit director for the 14th Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program. The 14th Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program, which includes Washington and Holmes counties, started its regular training program on Aug. 12 in Chipley with a

I can’t see how we can just sit here and let this happen to our people.” City grant writer Bob Jones reminded the council there would be a public hearing for the Capital Improvements Plan at 6 p.m. on Sept. 6. “Basically, this public hearing will be going over any and all ongoing projects the city has and will give you the ability to approve of


the plan during your meeting on Sept. 9,” Jones said. “This gives the public an opportunity to become involved in the park project.” The council also was reminded they have a workshop set to speak with the Bonifay Kiwanis Club about city expenses at 6 p.m. on Thursday.

The question becomes can you live without electricity, and Hapner said the answer is yes, even if it might be uncomfortable. “In the good old days, there wasn’t electricity or running water or indoor plumbing, but that wasn’t considered neglect — that was just the way it was.” Hapner said reports from the GAL to the courts were based on the advocates’ information. “This information is backed up by what you have seen and heard at the home.” Advocates are not investigators in the sense they are out to solve a crime, Hapner said. “I had one advocate in Bay County who was a former FBI agent, and he was always wanting to solve the case,” Hapner said. “We aren’t there to solve the case or find someone guilty. We’re there to look out for the child’s best interests.” The advocate gathers information to be better able to make an informed recommendation on the behalf of the child or children involved. The advocate is not out there alone; it is a team effort between the GAL staff, attorneys and advocates. GAL advocates gather information and facilitate things for the child and the family. “If you have resources, contacts that can help the family that is great,” Hapner said. “For example, if the power is turned off, and you know that if you call the church they can help, then by all means use those resources.” Volunteers also are there to be advocates for the children. “Ultimately it is up to the volunteer to gather information and make a recommendation that is in the best interest of the child,” Hapner said. The next training session for volunteers will be held in the fall. For more information about volunteering, call 747-5180.

On the evening of Aug. 19, the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office answered the call to a burglary at the Stateline Liquor Store in Northern Holmes County and were able to get images of the suspect off of the surveillance camera, according to the report. At the same time, the Geneva Police Department was answering a call about a stolen vehicle, which was used in the liquor store robbery and a vehicle burglary in their area, according to the report. On the evening of Aug. 20, the Geneva Police Department received a call

about a prowler and found Tidwell intoxicated, which he was then charged with public intoxication, according to the report. According to the report, the police found evidence that linked Tidwell to the recent burglaries. Tidwell is being charged with two counts of burglary of a structure, petit theft of more than $100 less than $300, grand theft of more than $300 less than $5,000, two counts of criminal mischief, wearing a mask while committing offense and grand theft-automobile, according to the report.

Sheriff Tim Brown would like to thank the public for their assistance in identifying this individual and would also like to thank the Geneva Police Department and the Geneva County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance. “This is a perfect example of citizens and neighboring law enforcement agencies working together to see that this individual is brought to justice,” Brown said. Sheriff Brown asks that anyone with any information on illegal activity call 547-4421 or reportacrime@

We’ve been paying for text books for a while now.” Dixon said the school district paid $85,000 in books last year, which is one-third the cost of tuition. “We’re looking into finding a way to change legislation for the next school year, because this is a big burden to schools,” he said. “Chipola is our area’s zoned community college, and they’re trying to filter these students into these zoned schools.” Kolmetz reminded everyone there are upcoming Morals and Ethics Training for faculty and staff. “I also wanted to say that

I’m against Cokes and candies,” Kolmetz said. “They shouldn’t be sold at school.” Board member Shirley Owens said she visited a few of the schools during the first day. “You couldn’t tell that this was the first day of school,” Owens said. “Everything just flowed so smoothly, which shows the level of leadership, and I have seen the relationships between faculty and staff, principals and teachers. Thank you everyone for going the extra mile in making the first day of school such a wonderful success.” Motley agreed with Owens about the good

relationship between principals and teachers. “I want to mention how clean and well maintained the schools were for the first day of school, which went well in spite of the weather,” Chair Rusty Williams said. “I’d like to thank the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office and Holmes County Correctional Institute for saving us a lot of money in cleaning and maintaining these buildings. I also wanted to thank our superintendent for our presentation in Tallahassee, which went very well.” The next scheduled meeting of the Holmes County District School Board is set for 9 a.m. on Sept. 3.

As trained advocates, GAL volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. A Guardian ad Litem is much more to a child than just their court advocate, according to the website, guardianadlitem. org. “A GAL volunteer often becomes a role model, mentor, educational surrogate, friend, confidant and most important, a consistent caring person on whom the child can rely,” according to the website. The role of the advocate is to assess the situation in which the child is living and be able to make a recommendation to the agency and the court about the situation in which their wards are living. “Is it neglect if there is no food in the home?” asked Fred Hapner, circuit director, who was leading the first training session for the new volunteers. One of the advocate trainees suggests it might be the end of the month, and the coffers are bare. “That’s a good point. Just because there isn’t food in the house, that doesn’t mean the child isn’t being fed,” Hapner said. Hapner said advocates have to not only observe the situation the children are living in, but they also have to be able to put things in perspective. That perspective is important for a GAL advocate, because their recommendations wind up going to the judge in Dependency Court and can have an impact on the proceeding’s outcome. “A lot of times this comes down to your own experiences and common sense,” Hapner said. He also gave the example of a home having no electricity. “Would it be neglectful to be living in a home without electricity? We may think so, but a judge may disagree with us.”

Economic Development Symposium can be game changer The first Washington County Economic Development Symposium held on Aug. 20 at PAEC can be an important first step toward the future. A panel of six experts on economic development spent a couple of hours explaining to Washington County leaders and elected officials what it takes to attract industry to a rural area and ways

the improve the existing economic structure by shopping locally and growing hometown businesses. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett organized the event, and he plans on holding a series of symposiums until the county leaders develop a plan for the economic development of the

county. Washington County’s leadership will have to step up and make some difficult decisions. Tax revenue will be needed to fund any future projects, such as creating a shovel ready site on which a potential industry could place a facility. County zoning and the Future Land Use Map will have to be

changed to allow for industrial growth, and if industrial growth should come, residential and commercial zoning is likely to grow as well. County commissioners and planning commissioners will have to think and act with foresight — a behavior that will certainly be a difficult task for some of our current leadership.

Planning and zoning decisions will have to be made with an eye on the future, not mired waist deep in the past, and revenue will have to be raised in some manner, which means taxation to create a fund for economic development — hopefully in the form of one day having a shovel ready site in Washington County.

The Washington County Chamber of Commerce board of directors and Everett are to be commended for their efforts to get the county moving toward future prosperity. Economic Development is like the lottery — if you don’t play, you can’t win — and now Washington County has taken its first step toward becoming a player.

Sacred Harp singers at the Galloway Singing, as seen in the “Heritage of Holmes County.” the Heritage Book, listed above, one of their sons, Chester Wilkerson Brock, “married Juanita Drake, whom he met at a Sacred Harp Sing while working for L. & N. Railroad and living in Birmingham.” Warren Miller, Vice President of the 1947 Convention, along with his wife, Thelma T. Tittle Miller, took an active part in leading songs at the session covered last week. This couple has one of the more unusual and interesting writings in the 2006 Heritage Book. The story was captured by their granddaughter, Linda, the child of their daughter, Louise Miller Cook and husband, Archie L. Cook. Linda reports in the story that a few years prior to the

death of her grandfather, she gave him a blank notebook, asking that he write information on his life and family. An excerpt from his complying with this request resulted in a heart-warming story. (See Page 282). The writer personally knew A. A. Blocker for whom a Birthday Sing was listed under the heading of Annual Sings. The singing was held at his home in Greenhead. Later, a building was constructed in that community and was known as the A. A. Blocker Memorial Church. If I am correct that meeting house now is home to the Greenhead Methodist Church and has been for many years. The Barfield Memorial

Sing, held the second Sunday in April at the Wausau Methodist Church, was held in memory of the patriarch of the noted Barfield Family of that area who continue to promote and sing Sacred Harp Music. Two of the sons were Henry Barfield, who became an Assembly of God pastor, and John Barfield, who reared a family of sons and daughters who have faithfully followed and supported Sacred Harp Music, traveling great distances to do so. Ernestine Barfield Pipkin married E. E. Pipkin and both enjoyed a lifetime of Sacred Harp Singing. Both are now deceased. One daughter married Bill Aplin and a second one married Tommy

Scurlock and your writer talked with all of them on June 22 as they were in attendance at Live Oak Baptist Church near Miller’s Ferry when I had the privilege of attending a Sacred Harp Sing. Wausau native Doris Owens remains my standby source of information on Sacred Harp Sings and related history. Neighboring Holmes County is deeply steeped in Sacred Harp Singing History. The 2006 “Heritage of Holmes County” book carried two articles on the subject, both on pages 50 and 52. Under the heading of Galloway Memorial Sacred Harp Sing, the writer gives much academic history of the


Other historic homes in danger of extinction With the demolition of the McGee Home on Waukesha St. in Bonifay, several other homes come to mind that may suffer the same fate in the future as no family remain to keep HAPPY CORNER them in Hazel Wells Tison repair. At a time when our locale’s economic development was centered around the plentiful timber industry, a cheap source of fine pine, hardwood and cypress led to the construction of spacious well-built dwellings. The earlier settlers had built the cracker style homes with an open hallway (dog run) flanked by rooms on either side, a front porch spanning the front and often a separate kitchen. The wide hall let in the summer breezes in the Florida summers and the detached kitchen kept some of the heat from the wood-burning cook stove from the main house. It was also a safety feature


The Waits Home on Kansas Avenue in Bonifay as it looks today. It was built in 1919 by George Waits, co-owner of Henderson Waits Lumber Company. Later it was occupied by his son, James and Maude Waits and her nephew, Ed Shaver, better known as Sonny Waits. Over the years, many people have lived in the apartments, but today the home is restored and is currently being advertised as a guest home and special events place. as the kitchen’s wood fired stove presented an ever present threat. Those who became more affluent during the early part of the 20th century particularly with the naval stores (gum, turpentining, etc) and timber harvesting and

the related business such as banking that was a part of that boom sought to enjoy their prosperity by building finer homes to reflect their economic prosperity. Since Florida heat was a major discomfort, these homes were built with

Kudos to state for keeping law enforcement retirement funds strong Last week, the Florida State Board of Administration released an encouraging financial update on Florida’s retirement plan for Florida deputies, law enforcement and correctional professionals, as well as state workers. Board of Administration Executive Director Ash Williams told the Florida Cabinet that the pension plan stands at $132 billion, nearly $10 billion higher than the previous fiscal year began. He attributed this outstanding result to “prudent diversification of assets, cost controls, and excellent fund manager selection.” This is great news for the citizens of Florida. This reaffirms that Florida’s retirement plan for public servants continues to be one the best managed and funded plans in the nation. Of course it is especially good news for our law enforcement officers and other public safety servants who serve the public every day knowing that their service could result in them making the ultimate sacrifice like Sergeant Wilson of the Charlotte County Sheriff ’s Office did last week. As Sheriffs, it is our duty and commitment to keep safe the Floridians and visitors we serve, as well as those who work in our organizations. It is good public policy to ensure that our pension system remains well-funded with solid investments so that the financial

welfare of these public servants in retirement is fair and reasonable. The daily risks that deputies and other law enforcement officers face are significant; a well-funded retirement is one benefit that our state must provide to balance some of those risks for law enforcement and their families. Since the beginning of the economic downturn we have all become aware of how many public pensions throughout the nation have become unsustainable and we must remain vigilant and fiscally responsible so that our pension plan will continue to serve as a role model for generations to come. We have been and we will continue to collaborate with the Florida Legislature and other chief executives across the spectrum of public service to strengthen our pension plan to be able to respond to this challenging and unique economic environment. In light of the current 13 percent return on our pension fund investments while affording our employees the option of participating in a “defined-benefit” plan or the “investment” plan, your Sheriffs want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for continued effective and prudent management of these taxpayer dollars by the Florida State Board of Administration. We want to thank the legislative

leaders who continue to support their public servants by providing and protecting our pension plan and for continuing to seek ways to make its fiscal health even better. There has been a long history of providing our military members and our public service employees with a fair and viable pension for their service and the wisdom of this policy has stood the test of time. Fortunately we live in a state whose leaders understand public pensions can only exist if they are managed effectively and do not become an unsustainable burden on our citizens. This latest Florida State Board of Administration report clearly demonstrates the solid foundation of Florida’s retirement system. With continued sound investments, proper asset management, and adequate funding, Florida’s retirement system will continue to shine as an example to others. All of our goals remain the same; to hold the great state of Florida up as a model, in every aspect – from safe communities with low taxes and beautiful natural resources to a balanced budget. This is the Florida we love and support. Grady Judd is Sheriff of Polk County Florida and President of the Florida Sheriffs Association. David Shoar is Sheriff of St. Johns County and Vice-President of the Florida Sheriffs Association.

structure from the early 1900s. This beautiful home was built by the Waites family who were owners of the Henderson Waites Lumber Company, which had an important economic impact on this area. Its headquarters were in Caryville, a booming town in its day. However, in its present condition, the Waites home is at risk for the same fate as the McGee house. In other places, I have visited historic homes which have been preserved by families and open to the public. I am thinking that we need to find a way to preserve that building, perhaps in cooperation with the city. A foundation could be formed to raise funds for preservation. Perhaps a grant would be available for historic preservation. Local clubs such as the historical society and the

garden club need to get involved and find a way to preserve this beautiful piece of our history. Perhaps some business will get interested in using it again as a place for weddings and special events. The Eureka Hotel is gone. The McKinnon home is gone. The L. & N. Depot is gone. Let’s get our heads together and find a way to preserve this fine architectural treasure before it falls to the ravages of time and decay. Bonifay doesn’t have the number of fine homes which some cities have and when Highway 79 is four-laned to the state line, other structures will be sacrificed in the name of progress. We need to wake up and find a way to keep the Waites home not as a relic of the past, but for future generations to appreciate their heritage.

Dear Editor, I read the article concerning the female meth user. She has been listed frequently in the arrest reports over the years. Apparently the HCSD did it duty. Why was she out of jail? An even bigger and more important question why was she even allowed within a thousand miles of the child? Let alone be with the child. Hope there is an investigation and she is put in jail for life. After all she did ruin that child’s life. Time for zero tolerance.

prattle from page A4 music: “Sacred Harp singing, a folk hymn form, dates back to Colonial times in New England America and even earlier in England. In earlier times, the sings were a reason for folks to get together to share great entertainment and fellowship.” The writing continues: “Typically the sings were scheduled to fall on a specific weekend every year. Southern region events were devoted entirely to a cappella singing with absolutely no musical instruments present, not even a pitch harp was allowed!” This article was submitted by Mary “Prissy” Galloway Platt and listed many sources of information in a lengthy bibliography. A second article in the Holmes County Book, submitted by Betty Marsico, gives some history on the origin of the Song Books used in Sacred Harp Sings. In the Holmes County area of Bethlehem, the historic Union Hill Baptist Church established a Sacred Harp Singing House on its grounds many years ago. In recent years it was my privilege to attend a session of

singing at that landmark location. I feel sure that I heard my very favorite two Sacred Harp Songs at this gathering. “Murillo’s Lesson” has some powerful words that I may not fully understand the significance of but the lyrics to my second selection “Going Home,” brings on cold chills. The first verse is: “Now to the power of God supreme, Be ever lasting honor given; He saves from hell (we bless his name) He calls our wandering feet to heaven And I don’t care to stay here long! Right up yonder, Christian, away up yonder, O, yes, my Lord, for I don’t care to stay here long.” These are all powerful and profound words. It is always interesting to meet and learn just how many of the group came from long distances to sing the same old songs that have thrilled the hearts of fans for numbers of years that are still astounding and hard to comprehend. I have enjoyed compiling this article just as I delighted in the immediate two of the past. See you next week — hopefully with a totally different subject matter.

Tigers trample Blue Devils Graceville takes the win against Holmes County By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT GRACEVILLE — Graceville Tigers gave the Holmes County Blue Devils a run for their money after pulling out a win with a score of 15-6 during opening game of the season, the Preseason Classic, on Aug. 23. The Tigers started off strong in the first quarter, and though they did not score any touchdowns, they were able to hold back the Blue Devils from making any of their own. The Tigers scored the first touchdown with 9:50 left in the first half by Jared Padgett, and with a successful two-point conversion, the score was 8-0. During the third quarter, the Blue Devils made

several attempts to regain their footing, but after the Tigers gained ground and held back the Blue Devils, the third quarter ended in a draw with neither side gaining any points. The Blue Devils regained some momentum for Thomas Parrish to score a touchdown with 6:21 left in the game, but with an unsuccessful attempt at a two-point conversion, the score was 8-6. The Tigers then retaliated with a touchdown by Padgett with 3:40, and with a successful kick, the score became 15-6.

Chipley’s Classic a barnburner Tigers top Bulldogs with fumble return in final seconds By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — Chipley’s football season began with a nail-biter Friday when the Tigers hosted the Liberty County Bulldogs at Philip Rountree Stadium. The Tigers would win the Kickoff Classic 22-16, and win in a spectacular fashion — junior tight end Bradley Hall snatched up a Bulldogs fumble and returned it 41 yards to score with only 20 seconds left to play in the game. The soggy field limited the passing game for both teams and kept the audiences to a minimum, but the rain didn’t diminish the players’ spirits — both teams were playing to win, even if the game doesn’t count on the season’s record. The Tigers had held a 16-8 lead going into the final minutes of play, and the Chipley defense even held off the Bulldogs for four downs from inside the 10. But when the Tigers took over on downs, they were unable to gain back any yardage, and a risky decision to go for it on fourth and long from inside their own 10 yard mark backfired. The second time the Bulldogs got control of the ball at first and goal, they were more determined, and after three tries William Hayes found the end zone. A.J. Palmberg’s PAT made it 16-16 with only 1:38 remaining, and it looked like the Classic was going to end in a tie. On the next drive, the Tigers managed 17 yards but ended up turning over the ball on downs at their own 41 with 26 seconds left in the game. Liberty County fumbled the snap on the next play, and the ball was scooped up by Hall, who had a clear path to the end zone. The Bulldogs drew first blood at 6:23 in the first quarter when Jordan Chaney scored, then added a PAT for good measure, but the Tigers answered when Kobe McCrary scored a touchdown of his own. Wyatt Brock’s PAT tied the game up 8-8. In the third quarter, McCrary ran it in on a sweep from the 5-yard mark, and added two with a PAT to put the Tigers up 16-8. Chipley travels to Vernon on Friday night to take on the Yellow Jackets for their season opener. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

Vernon Labor Day celebration to be Saturday By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT VERNON — The city of Vernon will celebrate Labor Day this Saturday with food, music, fireworks and fun, in spite of recent flooding, said Mayor Michelle Cook. In fact, the flooding, which began July 2, was the reason the Fourth of July celebration was postponed until Labor Day. Now, just a few days before the official end of summer and the beginning of September, Vernon and Washington County are still dealing with flooded roads, businesses and homes. “The activities will begin at 5 p.m., and the fireworks will be at 9 p.m.,” Cook told the Vernon City Council on Monday night. “Gilley’s is providing the entertainment, and there will be bounce houses and games for the kids.” The city will also be providing the food for the event, she said. Volunteers will be in Vernon helping families repair their

flood-damaged homes, the mayor said. Ben Tarpley of Live Oaks, founder of the volunteer group Hammers and Hearts, reported at the Aug. 19 council workshop that his group, along with Catholic Charities and the Northwest Florida Baptist Association and the Methodist churches were beginning to organize work parties to help repair people’s homes. Cook said it has been brought to her attention, by the volunteer groups, that there is a need for food donations. The volunteer groups are working to set up a food pantry at city hall. The volunteers work on private properties, but will not work to rebuild rental properties, Tarpley said. People interested in volunteering to help Hammers and Hearts with cleaning and construction should call Tarpley at 478-258-7585. Residents wanting to be added to the list for assistance should call the county Emergency Management Office at 638-6203. Vernon City Hall will be closed

on Sept. 2 for the holiday, City Clerk Dian Hendrix said. The council also voted to hire a temporary employee to help in public works while Public Works Director Gerald Ward is out of the office on leave. The council also approved a pay increase for the city’s public works director during Monday’s meeting. The council also discussed former city attorney Kerry Adkison’s final bill, which the council has challenged. Hendrix said the city has received an itemized bill and an affidavit, as well as an email from Adkison. Adkison is refusing to let the city have the files pertaining to ongoing litigation until the bill is paid. City Attorney Michelle Tagert said Adkison is holding the files as a lien until the payment is made, but she needs the files to assess the accuracy of the itemized bill the former attorney has submitted. “I see a few charges on here that I think are probably reasonable,” Tagert said of the bill. The city has been in ongoing

litigation with a property owner, and Tagert said she is concerned with the amount of work the city is being billed for that case. Councilman Tray Hawkins asked Tagert what would be a reasonable bill for that case. “Without the files, I cannot tell you what would be reasonable,” she said. The city also contests the bill for the lawsuit that Adkison lost to Florida Freedom News, the former parent company of the Washington County News. The lawsuit was the result of the city council, under Adkison’s counsel, violating the Florida Sunshine Law in April 2012. The matter went to court, and ultimately the newspaper was awarded the sum of $3,900. “I don’t mind paying Mr. Adkison,” said Councilman Joey Brock. “My concern is some of the statements he has made to the council, and that is why I think we should turn this over to our new attorney. I can’t see us paying him $27,000. I’m not saying we don’t owe him $27,000, but I would like for him to prove it.”

Hawkins asked Tagert if the city could enter into arbitration with Adkison. “I don’t want the city having any more litigation,” he said. “You can attempt to settle with him,” Tagert said. “My main concern is I don’t want to repeat work that the city has already paid for as our other litigation moves forward.” “I’d just like you two to get together and work this out,” Hawkins said to Tagert. Tagert said she had been unsuccessful in getting Adkison to return her calls, but she would continue trying to contact him. “How about I call him and get him to get in touch with you?” Hawkins asked. In other business, Fire Chief Tim Barnes reported that both fire trucks are still out of service following an accident on Aug. 18. As of Monday, there was no report on the how much the repairs to the fire trucks would cost, or even if the trucks were repairable. “So basically, we’re out of the fire business,” Hawkins said.

The eight honorees were selected from a list of 20, and all of them were honored at the Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle’s 2013 Women of Distinction Awards Gala at the Edgewater Beach Resort. “To be able to spotlight these women and let the others in the community know that this is the type of caliber we have here, is absolutely amazing,” said Donna Pilson, chair of the gala and a 2012 honoree. “The group of nominees that we have is nothing short of phenomenal.” Of the nominees, the program’s highest honors of Diamond Award and Pearl Award were awarded to Sharon Sheffield and Dot Nelson, respectively. The former is awarded to a woman who has made a lifetime impact on her career field, and the latter is awarded to a woman who has made lifetime impact on the Girl Scouts. A lifetime impact is considered to be a period of at least 15 years, officials said. Sheffield, former Lynn Haven city commissioner and mayor, shed tears as she spoke to the audience. She said she loves giving to her community. “First of all, I’m honored,” Sheffield said. “I do what I do because I love what I do — anything I can do to help more children. … You never know who you’re making an impression on, so it behooves us to do the best that we can every day that we can.” Nelson has been a member of Girl Scouts for more

than 80 years. Officials said because of “health and weather issues,” Nelson was not present to receive her award. The pastor of her church received it on her behalf. Each woman was nominated by a person in the community and met with a selection panel that chose the best nominee in the categories of media, law enforcement, education, community service, health, science and engineering and business. “I truly feel that tonight has been one of the most exciting times that we have been able to do something here in the Bay County area,” said Raslean M. Allen, Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle chief executive officer. “(The program) truly speaks to the recognition of the women that are currently here doing the things that they do. Truly they inspire our girls — encourage confidence and character — that will make the world a better place.” Nicole Barefield, publisher at the Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser, was awarded the honor of distinction in the media category. “It’s very humbling and I’m very appreciative that someone took the time to share this information about me,” she said. “I’m deeply honored to have been nominated and to be of the company of remarkable women.” Barefield has been in the media business for more than 30 years, working primarily at The News Herald. Her career history includes several facets of the media industry, including news and marketing. The awards program is designed to give current Girl Scouts role models. “It gives the girls an example of achievements
