I feel like this is important to me as a taxpayer.� Thompson said the Sunny Hills Fire Department operated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit from 2009 to 2010, even as the department remained under the administration of the Washington County government. “For a couple of years, according to the minutes, the fire department was operating as both a 501(c)3 and as a county department,� she said. Thompson also questioned the purchase of personalized equipment for volunteers and the purchase of a computer tablet for the fire department.

The department purchased the computer tablet to send call run reports electronically to the Emergency Operations Center and to receive and answer emails, Gothard said. Prior to the purchase, Gothard

was using his personal computer to do the job, he said. After the tablet was purchased, it was discovered that it would not run the run call reports Gothard needed, so he went back to using his home computer until the department purchased a laptop that could accommodate the EOC software. “I have 31 years of experience in the fire service including numerous hours of training and instructor certifications which I bring as chief of the WCFD,” Gothard said. “I am also a licensed Florida EMT.

Governor Rick Scott honors Florida firefighters Special to the News TALLAHASSEE — During a Florida Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, Gov. Rick Scott, along with Cabinet members, passed a resolution to create a Florida Firefighters Memorial at the Florida State Capitol Building. The memorial will be a place for all visitors to the state capitol to visit and honor firefighters who have given their lives to help protect the Floridians they serve. “Florida firefighters put their lives on the line every day to protect Florida families and their property,� said Scott. “I am happy today to join the Florida Cabinet in designating a place for all Floridians to recognize and remember the sacrifice that Florida’s fallen fighter fighters have given. As we honor those gave the ul-

timate sacrifice today, we also look forward with new legislation that aims to give the fire fighting community the tools they need to keep Floridians safe.� Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater said, “I want to thank all those who cooperated in developing this important piece of legislation and the support of the Legislature and the Governor’s Office as it moved through the process. SB 1410 is a complex and comprehensive measure that required the collaboration of many parties. This bill will provide the fire fighting community relief from outmoded structural impediments and increase the efficiency of their operations. Those who so willingly put themselves at risk for us on a daily basis deserve no less.� Florida Attorney General

Pam Bondi said, “I am proud of Florida’s brave firefighters, and the Florida Firefighters Memorial will be a permanent remembrance at our state Capitol for people to pay their respects to those who sacrificed their lives for the safety of others.� Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam said, “The firefighters of Florida are truly selfless public servants who put their lives on the line to save the homes, the businesses and, most importantly, the lives of others. We cannot thank them enough for their service and sacrifice, but this new firefighter memorial will be a fitting tribute to the heroes we’ve lost.� Additionally, after the Cabinet meeting, Governor Scott signed SB 1410, which will give the Florida Chief Fire Marshall

more authority to protect lives and property. This legislation updates continuing education requirements for fire safety inspectors, gives firefighters and volunteer firefighters more options for retaining certifications and updates old statute regarding the State Fire Marshall. Senator David Simmons said, “Today’s bill signing is a great step forward in keeping Florida families safe. I applaud Governor Scott and everyone in the fire fighting community for helping with this great legislation and for putting the safety of Florida citizens first.� Representative Jim Boyd said, “I am happy to stand with Governor Scott and the fire fighting community today as we honor those who have given their lives to protect the families

of our state. SB 1410 will help ensure that fire fighters across Florida have the tools they need to continue to serve the Sunshine State.� Florida Professional Firefighters Association’s Government Relations Director Jim Tolley said, “Florida’s professional firefighters would like to thank Representative Boyd and Senator Simmons for sponsoring this fire safety bill. We thank Governor Scott for signing this bill into law providing increased safety to the public as well as our firefighters. SB 1410 becoming law, corrects a glitch in the continued certification of our knowledgeable and experienced retired firefighters. These retired firefighters assist in the education of students in fire academies and colleges.�

Cold case closed with manslaughter plea From Staff Reports PANAMA CITY — Investigators with the Panama City Police Department relentlessly gathered evidence in the slaying of 20-yearold Adam Bolton since 2007.

Man injured in road rage incident dies From Staff Reports MARIANNA — A man injured in a road rage incident in Jackson County earlier this month has died, and two men have been arrested. The Jackson County Sheriff ’s Office said the victim died in Bay Medical Center Sacred Heart Health System early

Wednesday morning. The man was identified as Terry Joe Gibbs, 56, of North Carolina. According to a release from JCSO, arrested were two men: Kevin Denkevitz of Sanford, N.C. was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and shooting into an occupied vehicle; Craig Mathew Frederickson of Maple Hill, N.C.

was charged with burglary of an occupied conveyance with battery and criminal mischief greater than $200. Denkevitz and Frederickson were two of three motorcyclists involved in an altercation on June 17 at the Sunoco gas station on State 71 in Marianna. During the incident, shots were fired into a vehicle and

one of the three motorcyclists was hit by the vehicle. The third motorcyclist is the man who died Wednesday. Investigators determined that the altercation stemmed from a road rage incident that had previously occurred on Interstate 10 between a motorist and three motorcyclists, JCSO said.

Marianna man armed with sword arrested From Staff Reports MARIANNA — A Marianna man was armed with a Samurai sword, according to authorities, when he was arrested Tuesday after allegedly attacking his mother and his girlfriend. Jackson County Sheriff’s

deputies responded to a home in the 5000 block of Hundred Acre Drive, where they found the man’s mother and his girlfriend had been injured in a domestic incident that turned physical. The man’s mother told deputies that her son pushed her down, and his girlfriend told

deputies that he choked her and threw her to the floor, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. The man had fled the home, where he lives with his mother, before deputies arrived. Assisted by K-9 tracking teams, deputies soon located the man

in woods near the home. He was armed with what appeared to be a samurai sword, JCSO reported, but did not resist arrest. Joshua Randal Patrick, 39, was charged with two counts of battery under domestic violence guidelines. He is being held in Jackson County Jail.

Becker and the Panama City Police Department conducted an exhaustive investigation into the murder of Adam Bolton,� Sombathy said. “The age of the case presented some challenges, but this manslaughter plea forces Joseph Duhon to accept responsibility for the death of Adam Bolton, and hopefully bring some closure for his family.�

Change to benefit your body Like most people, I’m better at some things than others. One thing I’m not particularly good at is sports. As a kid, whether at school or summer camp, I dreaded sports. I’d have rather gone to Hades than gym class. One of my happiest moments in school was learning that I could escape P.E. classes by joining the marching band. True, joining the band involved daily practice sessions, standing outside in either the blazing SHANNON sun or bitter cold, SEYLER and the rather messy Faithfully Yours business of marching behind horses in parades. But I became a devoted band member, even snagging multiple music scholarships as a result. Maybe you can guess that I was a bit of a geek in school. I’m still a geek today, just a slightly more wrinkled one. Geeks and sports don’t mix. Also, spending some formative years in a heavily religious area had colored my view of sports. Many people insisted that working on one’s body was vain and sinful. The soul was exalted at the expense of the body. Sports were “worldly” entertainment. Moreover, sports were something that young ladies simply didn’t participate in. Today, although admittedly still not into sports, I feel that ignoring one’s body is a major mistake. There are people who, as a direct result of believing that the physical body is less important that the soul, have let their bodies go. This includes ignoring physical fitness, failing to pay attention to medical symptoms, getting improper nutrition and becoming obese. I’ve met several religious women who feel that going to a gym is immodest. Religious women, in particular, are often raised to feel ashamed of their bodies.

NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK: SPRINGWIRE This organization began in Seattle as Community Voice Mail. It allows low-income and homeless individuals to get messages to their families and loved ones. Many people without a fixed address have difficulty even letting their loved ones know their whereabouts. They also can’t contact agencies that might be able to help them. Realizing that many common means of communication such as cell phones and e-mail are often unavailable to the impoverished, Springwire allows people to reach out not only to their families, but to potential employers. They also help the homeless produce and store documents needed for securing jobs, including birth certificates and other basic identification papers. Springwire now serves people in over 400 cities across the U.S. For towns that don’t yet offer Springwire, the organization’s website offers information on how to implement it in your community. Springwire http://www.cvm.org 2901 Third Avenue, Suite 100 Seattle, WA 98121 (206) 441-7872 One of the more intriguing comments I’ve heard about physical fitness came from the late Jack LaLanne. He was one of the first major TV fitness gurus. Millions of Americans started exercising because of him. Some of his exercise routines are considered tame by today’s standards, but back then, they were radical. Even some medical doctors spoke out against him, claiming that physical exercise was bad for women because it would make them muscle-bound and mannish. But people ignored the doctors and began exercising in front of their TV sets. One day, Jack LaLanne spoke about gifts. What if someone gave him a gift, he asked, and then he smashed it with a hammer? People would consider him both crazy and ungrateful. But he said that’s exactly what we’re doing when we don’t take care of our bodies. The

Creator has given us the magnificent gift of a body, and then we show our ingratitude by stubbornly refusing to take care of it. We destroy it with junk food, lack of exercise and more. That’s no way to give thanks. Jack LaLanne accomplished physical feats during his senior years that most people can’t manage in their youth. We don’t have to become the next Jack LaLanne, of course, but it’s a wise idea to pay attention to both our bodies and our health. So this week, try to think of one change you can make that will benefit your body. Try putting down that soda or beer and replacing it with water. Learn a new exercise routine. Build yourself a nice, healthy salad. Go for a walk. Take nutritional supplements. Get more rest. We can give thanks for the amazing gift of the human body by treating it with care and respect.
