CARYVILLE — When it comes to paying a contractor’s bill for $16,510, Town Attorney Lyndia Spears told the Caryville Town Council that “calling their bluff” would be the best course of action. The council, which met on Aug. 13, approved Spears sending a letter of dispute and request of proof of documentation in reply to a contractor who sent the bill. The bill was first discussed during the council’s June 11 meeting. Spears explained that the town received two grants of $20,000 to build Hodges and Sellers Park in Caryville in 2010. “This was before my time, but as I understand it one of the parks went over budget,” said Spears. “However the town had paid off the over amount, which was quite a bit over $20,000. This bill says that the town owes a principle amount of $16,510 but fails to provide documentation, which is why I strongly advise the town dispute the bill.” Spears said that the contractor has yet to provide documentation and at this time there is nothing else the town can do in the matter.

education from page A1 “We’re getting people together and discussing the needs,” Ellis said. “We want to be a voice for all industry throughout Northwest Florida.” Bense is president of GAC Contractors in Panama City and served in the Florida House of Representatives from 1998-2006. Ellis is a founding board member. He is manager of West Point Home in Chipley and serves on the Washington County School Board. Chipola College and Washington County Chamber of Commerce are charter members of the council. Helping manufacturing companies grow is the aim of the council, Ellis said, which consists of representatives from area employers, educational institutions and economic development and workforce organizations. The group has been meeting since January to discuss how existing manufacturers can be more successful and how to attract more companies to the region. The result of those meetings is the formation of the council, which will help companies work together to compete in a global marketplace with a special emphasis on having a skilled workforce. “We have to change the image of technical education,” Bense said. “There is that impression that students who go to a technical campus are not as successful as their college-bound counterparts, but technical jobs are good paying jobs.” Bense said certified automotive technicians can earn $70,000 a year, for example. “A lot of the jobs begin at $30,000, and go up


from there,” he said. Likewise, most skilled manufacturing positions that pay well above minimum wage require math and science knowledge as well as practical mechanical ability. “One of the problems is, if you ask a room full of parents ‘who wants their child to go to college,’ most of them will raise their hands. But the truth is we aren’t sending all our kids to college,” Bense said. Ellis said that in Washington County, 75 percent of the graduates will not go to college. “We need to do a better job of providing that technical education or certification program for these students so they can get out of high school and earn a good living,” Ellis said. Likewise, a skilled workforce is often a prerequisite for manufacturers to build a facility in a region. “People aren’t looking at fiveyear plans anymore,” Ellis said. “They are looking 18 months down the road, and they want to know what you can do for them right now,” when it comes to providing things such as an suitable industrial site or a skilled workforce. Ellis said there is likely to be a resurgence in manufacturing in the U.S., and to benefit from the resurgence Northwest Florida needs to begin planning now. The council wants to start by initiating a dialog between public schools, colleges, universities and technical schools along with manufacturing leaders to start working toward the goal of providing essential workforce education, Ellis said. “I’ve been told that if the stu-

dents have a certain level of education, then they can be trained in other skills,” Ellis said. “It’s getting the students up to that level, and changing the perception that technical education is somehow lesser than college-oriented education, that we need to work on.” The form the education will take, and the development of the technical academies, is something to be decided, but that discussion needs to begin as soon as possible, Bense said. The council currently has more than 25 members and is looking to grow the membership. “This new council exists to serve the needs of local manufacturers,” said Greg Britton, CEO of Fort Walton Machining and council chairman, in a news release. “By banding together we will increase our influence on a regional, state and national level to ensure our industry continues to prosper.” Manufacturing is a high valueadded industry in the economy, generating the highest earnings per worker of any industry. With more than 15,000 manufacturing jobs already in Northwest Florida, this sector is projected to grow at a higher rate than in other region throughout the state, according to Britton. “The benefits of membership include promoting job creation and helping to build a skilled manufacturing workforce in the region,” Britton said. “And by speaking with one voice we can help tackle issues and address roadblocks.” The council also is an affiliate chapter of the Manufacturers Association of Florida, which will

Manufacturing in Northwest Florida Manufacturing is a key driver in the 12-county regional economy. The region is expected to receive $2.6 billion in total 2013 GDP (gross domestic product) from manufacturing. • The manufacturing industry directly contributes 14,518 jobs across the Northwest Florida Economy and in the process, generates $985 million in total earnings. This equates to $67,872 in earnings for each worker employed in the industry. The leisure and hospitality industry, by comparison, employs 63,053 workers across the region and generates $1.3 billion in earnings. This equates to roughly $20,600 in earnings for each worker employed in the industry. Manufacturing has a higher economic impact (as measured by earnings) in the region per job generated than any other industry super cluster. • The manufacturing industry also adds an additional 17,062 jobs indirectly to the economy. For every 1 job in manufacturing, an additional 2.175 jobs are generated in the region. • Manufacturing is projected to grow more rapidly in Northwest Florida than in any other region in the state.

offer statewide and national advocacy for members. The board of directors for the new organization consists of leaders from several companies throughout the region, including Britton. Gulf Power President & CEO Stan Connally and Bense are the vice-chairs of the organization “The availability of skilled technicians — everything from CNC machinists to welders to chemical process operators — is vital to growing the region’s manufacturing base,” Connally said in the news release. “This council will raise awareness of these high-skill, high-wage careers and will work with education partners throughout the region to grow

training programs to prepare future workers for this industry.” Other goals for the council will be developed through input from members. “An organization like this has been needed in our area for a long time, and we hope that local manufacturing companies and partners will see the advantages of being a part of it,” Bense said. “We can make a lot more progress together than we can alone.” The council is open to manufacturers of all sizes in the Northwest Florida region, as well as affiliate members and vendors who have an interest in the economic success of manufacturers. The first membership meeting will be held in September.

debt from page A1 Paron Beeco came before the town council to give an update on preparations for the next Flea Across Florida, which will be held in September. “We’ll have people from the Council on Aging setting up a booth, we’ll have food vendors, pony rides and live entertainment,” said Beeco. “We’re also raffling off a $50 Wal-Mart card.” Beeco suggested that the town consider possible deterrents to loiterers at the flea market. “We need something like a stronger light or $250 fine for loiterers,” said Beeco. “On July 31 an Ebro woman spent the night there and we’ve got a problem with graffiti.” Beeco was turned down for his request to be reimbursed for postage to mail out the Flea Across Florida promotional fliers as well as paint to cover graffiti on the flea market’s tables. “It’s kind of stupid to send these fliers to those of us that live around here,” said Council Member Nora Curry. “You should have sent them out to other towns and

states and not those of us around here who already know all about the event.” The council approved of allowing New Zion Baptist Church to host an event at the Caryville Recreational Center for half the normal rental fee. Starting at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, there will be free hamburgers and hot dogs for the public as well as a free movie, “The Jesus Film,” which starts at 6 p.m. “Since it is a non-profit organization putting it together as a free service to the community we should at least consider waiving or reducing the fee,” said Curry. Council approved of submitting a grant application for a possible water park for Caryville. Council Member Ransom Works informed the council that there was still a leak at the Caryville Recreational Center. “It was pretty bad when the rains were hard,” said Works. “We still can’t figure out where it’s coming from.” Council Member Jim Taylor said that he had informed the council for two years that

the roof was “bad.” Council Member Millard French said he would bring back a quote for galvanized tin, which is the material the council agreed on to repair the roof. “The town has no money so I suggest a fundraiser to raise money to fix the roof,” said Chairman Henry Chambers. The council also agreed to research a way to get the local library opened back up. “After looking around I never realized how much that place has helped people,” said French. “Mostly children but a lot of good was coming out of that place and we should see what we can do to get it up and running again.” The council approved of reimbursing a volunteer $60 in gas money to pick up the town’s commodities from Shepherd’s Gate Church. French asked whom they would get to help retrieve the commodities coming in on Sept. 20, which is food reserved for almost 600 families in Caryville. “We’ll just have to find someone who

needs the community service hours,” said Chambers. French requested that the council reevaluate the town hall employees. “We’ve got one here that we pay her $590 per month and I don’t understand why she’s even on the payroll,” said French. “We’re drowning and scrimping for change and if there was someone at my job that didn’t show they wouldn’t have that position for long.” He suggested that they re-evaluate the position and pay. “Just how hard can it be to pay bills?” asked French. “A week at Chipola and you’d be qualified to write a grant. I’m not saying pick up the local drunk but it’s not rocket science.” The council agreed to table the discussion, compare the town hall positions and consider a new description for the next meeting. The next Caryville Town Council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Sept. 10 at the Caryville Town Hall.

Water wars heat up It turns out Sen. Marco Rubio’s committee hearing Aug. 13 in Apalachicola was just the opening shot fired in the latest interstate water war. Later that day, Gov. Rick Scott announced Florida would sue Georgia for hoarding water and killing Apalachicola Bay. Scott’s move made the biggest noise, but the political path — such as Rubio’s hearing — likely will prove more effective at ending the tri-state stalemate. Rubio requested a rare field hearing of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation to draw attention to the plight of the bay. Unchecked growth in the Atlanta metro area for the last 30 years has drained Lake Lanier of too much of its fresh water. That in turn has left an insufficient amount to flow downstream in the ApalachicolaChattahoochee-Flint River Basin, which empties into the Apalachicola Bay. The result has been an environmental and economic disaster in the Apalachicola area. Insufficient fresh water has reduced oyster harvests in the bay 60 percent in the last year, creating a 44 percent drop in revenue in the local oystering industry. Seafood industry officials estimate in just the past year, 60 people have quit the oyster business and moved away. That’s a significant number in a small community that relies heavily on oysters for its livelihood. On Aug. 12, the Obama administration made it official by declaring a fishery disaster for Florida’s oyster beds on the Gulf coast, making the area eligible for economic assistance. Florida and Alabama (which has also suffered

environmental damage) have been trying for years to get Georgia to reduce its intake of water. Lawsuits go back to 1990. In 2011, Georgia won a huge victory when a federal appeals court overturned a lower court and unanimously ruled that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has authority to allocate additional water from Lake Lanier to meet Atlanta’s increasing needs. The Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal. That would seem to preclude a legal solution to the problem. But Scott, with the backing of Rubio, Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, who accompanied him in Apalachicola Aug. 13, believes one more lawsuit could do the trick. He said Florida next month will file an injunction with the Supreme Court to force Georgia to increase its flow. That seems like a longshot. A decision probably also wouldn’t come soon enough to deliver relief to Apalach oysterers. The best bet is to achieve a legislative solution in Congress. The Senate in May turned away attempts by Nelson and Rubio to amend the 2013 Water Resources Development Act that would have required more water to flow to Apalachicola Bay. They should keep trying. Cobbling together enough votes to pass legislation should prove easier than convincing a Supreme Court that has already refused to address the issue, not to mention getting the three states to agree on a water compact. Rubio admits “the strategy is to do everything — put as much out there and see what sticks.” He and his colleagues on Capitol Hill are the best hope.

Historic McGee home being demolished A landmark on North Waukesha Street is being demolished, and it prompted me to record as much McGee history as I can gather. Not many Bonifiay residents remember the McGee family, who were an early family active in the business community from the 1920s until the 1950s. I remember Mrs. HAPPY CORNER Lilla McGee from her Hazel Wells Tison involvement in First Baptist Church and especially the Woman’s Missionary Union. A WMU Circle bore her name for many years after I was a part of the church. A circle was also named for Mrs. Daisy Griffith and Mrs. Susan Armstrong, contemporaries of Mrs. McGee. Ken Yates grew up next door to the McGee family, and when Mr. Claude McGee died in 1953, Ken spent nights at the home until Mrs. McGee became accustomed to being alone. She was an excellent cook, he remembers, and introduced him to salt fish for breakfast along with her homemade biscuits. Her scrambled eggs with brains, however, did not appeal to the young Yates. In the ‘50s, she also had a television set, which many of us did not, so he enjoyed watching T.V. with her. He described the home as very well decorated in Queen Anne and Victorian style and Mrs. McGee, a true Southern lady who originated in Abbeyville, Ala., enjoyed entertaining friends in her home. Mr. J.C. McGee, who came to Bonifay from Hartford, Ala., owned and operated McGee Oil Company on Highway 90 east. He was a wholesale Independent Oil Dealer in addition to the retail outlet, McGee’s service station. His tire recapping shop was in back of the service station. His son, Jack McGee, worked with him and continued the business after his father’s death. Jack moved to Fort Walton about 1962 with his wife, Majorie, and children, Phipps and Ann. Marjorie passed away soon after the family left Bonifay. Jack’s brother, Howard McGee, moved to Fort Walton with his wife, Catherine, years earlier and was in the banking business.


The McGee Home on Waukesha Street was the home of J.C. and Lila McGee. He was co-owner of McGee Oil Co., operated in later years by son Jack McGee. The house itself was built about 1920, close to the same time as the Waits Home just up the street. The Craftsman style house featured a wide front veranda flanked with brick pillars and post columns. Wide brick steps welcomed visitors to the seven foot tall front door, which opened into the wide hall that runs the length of the main house ending in a T-shaped hall that leads to the kitchen and to the side entrance. Built with 12-foot high ceilings of heart pine, the hard wood floors have been covered with carpet. Some of the wainscoting seems to have been added covering the original wallpaper. On the north side is a spacious living room with a fireplace and a large dining room with a fireplace. The kitchen is across the T-shaped hall. An enclosed brick chimney housed a flue for a wood stove, I am sure. A bedroom with adjoining small bath is near the service entrance. That part of the house was an apartment at one time and Terry (Taylor) and Shay McCormick begun their married life there. On the south side of the hall are two large bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bath between. They both have fireplaces. I was impressed with the small closets. I know people didn’t have as much “stuff” as we collect today. And I am sure in those large rooms they had wardrobes and bureaus with lots of drawers. It is sad to see the demise of such

a well-built, once-regal home. David Lauen has salvaged the original style Queen Ann windows (not insulated). Surprisingly, few of them have been broken. Bill Parish is working to salvage the beautiful door moldings, just to preserve them for their historical value. It is unfortunate that someone could not restore the home for a dwelling, but most people don’t want to live on Main Street. Jake and Alice Jacobs bought it with the idea of restoring it in the late 1980s but decided to go a different route. They sold it to a family who wanted to use it as an antique shop, but that also fell through. Alice did come into possession of a couple of pieces of Mrs. McGee’s antique furniture, which she has had restored and still proudly uses in her home. The Jacobs sold the home to Billy and Ollie Hudson, who lived there for several years. I recall their Christmas decorations, especially how they decorated the antique truck which they parked in the front yard. Through the generosity of a late church member, First Baptist Church is the current owner of the property and offered the house for sale to be moved or torn down. Since no takers were forthcoming, the city has asked that it be removed as an eyesore. I just couldn’t let it go without memorializing the McGee house as a tribute to Bonifay’s early history and the people who made it the town it is today.

heart and has recently passed in legislation,” said Coley. “That topic was the training and jobs so students don’t have to leave too far from home. Through legislation we’ve created multiple pathways to gain a diploma.” To be more specific, Coley explained that there has been advances in schools even as soon as high school where students can choose to develop their skills in the technical field instead of purely academic pursuits. “We’ve pursued classes that are more relevant and will help them prepare them if they choose to go into a career right out of high school and maybe postpone their college education for a few years,” said Coley. “I taught at Chipola for many years and a lot of my students were older students returning. They had been in the work force and then they suddenly realized that they really need a degree to go further.”

She explained that the legislation passed offers incentives and help to school districts to provide industry certification. “The good news to that is that you have the Washington-Holmes Technical Center right down the road,” said Coley. “That suddenly becomes very relevant for your students.

Local domestic task force readies for awareness events By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force discussed upcoming awareness events during their meeting held on Aug. 8 at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center. Missy Sword Lee, Family Intervention Program Supervisor for Habilitative Services of Northwest Florida, announced that Doctors Memorial Hospital had partnered with the task force to host an awareness walk from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 11 at the hospital in Bonifay. “This will include a walk for anyone who can get pledges to raise money,” said Lee. “The walk will be around the hospital’s walking path. There will also be a ‘walk in her shoes’ event for men to participate by

wearing high heels for pledge money.” She said that at the end of night there would be a vigil where luminaries, which may be purchased in advance for $10, will be lighted during a special ceremony where victims and survivors are recognized while survivors are sharing their stories. “We have sponsorship packages available for local businesses and individuals that have a nice incentive package to go with the level that they choose to give,” said Lee. “We will have free food, give-aways, fun for the kids, vendors and entertainment. That entertainment will consist of local talent but we will also have an award winning artist singing as well, which will be announced when I

finalize it.” She said they are in need of vendors to set up at the event. “If the vendor is selling an item for profit then the vendor fee is $50,” said Lee. “If the vendor is setting up to give away items to event attendees, such as popcorn, water bottles, etc., then the vendor fee is waived. I will be speaking at the Chipley Kiwanis on Tuesday, Aug. 27. On Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 9 a.m., the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners will be hearing a proclamation read to make October Domestic Violence Awareness Month for Holmes County,” Lee said. “On Thursday, Oct. 26, at 9 a.m. we will be doing the same thing at the Washington County Board of County Commissioners meeting.”

Hundreds of Florida panthers sighted From Staff Reports The public has reported hundreds of sightings of Florida panthers to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website launched a year ago, where people can record when and where they saw a panther or its tracks, FWC officials wrote in a news release. As of August 2013, the public had submitted 790 sightings to MyFWC. com/PantherSightings. “The public’s willingness to share what they have seen or collected on game cameras is incredibly helpful and shows us where panthers presumably are roaming in Florida ,” said Darrell Land, who heads the FWC’s panther team. “We thank everyone using the Report Florida Panther Sightings website and encourage others to participate in this citizen-science venture.” Only 12 percent of the reports included a photograph and could be evaluated by Commission biologists. Of those with photos, the majority were confirmed as panthers. Other animals identified by FWC

Hooked on Outdoors

Factors conspire to limit fishing I believe this is what could be called the summer that wasn’t. When it comes to fishing, the last two years have been the worst saltwater fishing years I can remember. Last year, the wind blew every single day I tried to snapper fish. I suppose the people who have no job enjoyed it because if it was ever calm it was Outdoor during the middle of Life the week. Scott Lindsey This year has captainlindsey@ been more of the same, rough on the weekends and calm during the week. That is just the tip of the iceberg. We have had more rain during the past two months than we have had in the past six years it seems, and it’s still coming down. If you didn’t fish saltwater you might not understand what freshwater does to our bays and Gulf. When it rains on the bay and Gulf it doesn’t cause such a discoloration of the water, but let Deerpoint Lake and Crooked Creek and all the other runoff come into the bay and it turns black. The bay runs into the Gulf and turns it black. As if black bay water weren’t enough, all this freshwater has run all the bait out of the bay and Gulf. The boys who sell bait are having to work overtime just to have enough to sell. We tried to buy bait the other day and they ran out before we could get there. All the familiar places that held cigar minnows last year are as empty as old Mother Hubbard’s cupboard. I have caught exactly 20 cigar minnows around the buoys this year. It used to be we caught that many in two drops with a sibiki rig. Just because I can’t seem to catch a fish doesn’t mean other people aren’t, but the ones I’m talking to are not doing too well. Now we have a new pox on the land and that is this river of a current that is headed east in the Gulf. Pull up to a hole and drop a grouper bait down and you are 50 feet off the hole before your bait can get straightened out. The hard current is good for mackerel fishing, but little else. Black water, wind, currents that put a strain on your anchor line — it’s enough to make a fellow stop fishing and hunt for arrow heads.

biologists were bobcats, foxes, coyotes, dogs, house cats and even a monkey, officials wrote. Most often the reported animal or tracks belonged to a bobcat, when it was not a panther. The verified panther reports were largely confined to southwest Florida , the well-documented breeding range for panthers in the state. There also were several verified sightings in south central Florida . “As the population of this endangered species grows, the FWC expects more Florida panthers to be seen in areas of the state where they have not lived for decades,” Land said. “To properly plan and manage for the expansion of the panther’s range in Florida , information about where the panthers are is vital.” The FWC has a new “E-Z guide to identify panther tracks” available at www. The Florida panther population is estimated to be 100 to 160 adults and yearlings, a figure that does not include panther kittens. As recently as the 1970s, the Florida panther was close to disappearing, with as few as 20 animals in the wild.

‘Duck Dynasty’ star attends wedding MARS, Pa. — A camouflageclad bride and groom got a little advice from a bewhiskered witness on their wedding day: “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson. WTAE-TV reports Robertson told the couple to always love and forgive one another as they were wed Saturday morning at a Field & Stream store near Pittsburgh . Robertson popped in for the nuptials of Mehgan Cook, who sported a camouflage sash on her dress, and Charlie Miller, who was completely clad in camo gear. The two hadn’t planned on marrying at the store but Cook said they were eager to meet Robertson. “I was going to cancel the wedding ‘cause I heard Willie was coming,” Cook told KDKA-TV.


“Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson. Instead, Cook said, her mother came up with the idea of a wedding at the store — and they got a surprise when Robertson appeared during the ceremony.

“That’s a first for me, it’s good to be a part of that,” Robertson said. “They look like my kind of folks with the camouflage . that was cool.”

On the “Duck Dynasty” Season 4 premiere, which aired Wednesday, family members threw a surprise wedding for patriarch Phil Robertson, wearing a black jacket over camouflage garb, and his wife, Miss Kay. They could only afford a justice of the peace when they married 48 years ago. The show drew 11.8 million viewers on the A&E channel, making it the No. 1 non-fiction series telecast in U.S. cable television history in total viewers as well as all key demographic groups. Cook said she had been engaged to another man, but he died in a car crash four years ago. But she met Miller at the scene and eventually the two started dating. “I never thought it would happen again,” Cook said, tearing up.

Sharks not the only danger lurking in the water By SCOTT LINDSEY

Special to Halifax Media Many who own a television know that it was recently “Shark Week.” Do you realize that the conditions in the Gulf, with the black water color, are exactly like they were in the early 1990s when we had three shark attacks in the jetties area in the same day? A man was viciously attacked in the Gulf near the east jetties area. There are many versions as to what happened, but the one I hear the most is that he and some women were feeding dolphins from a boat and he said he was going to jump in and catch one. Remember now, they could not see their hands 5 inches under the water. No matter which story was factual, one thing was certain. He sailed overboard and must have landed right on top of a very big (from the size of the bite marks) and hungry bull shark. Before he knew it most of one leg was gone. I understand the women on the boat tried to pull him aboard and the shark attacked a second time, almost

cutting him in two. The man died at the scene. On the same day, a woman was bitten on the leg wading near the kiddy pool, and a surfer was bitten on the foot in the same area. It is believed that more than one shark was responsible for the attacks. Shark attacks are horrible, and they make the news, but did you know there is something else in the water that is much more likely to attack you? It is a bacteria called vibrio

vulnificus and it can affect anyone with a compromised immune system. People with diabetes are at risk simply by eating certain shellfish. On man ate oysters at lunch and by dark he was having his legs amputated. I fished with a doctor who did extensive research on vibrio vulnificus and he advised everyone on the boat who fished to wash down with bleach after each trip, whether we got cut fishing or not. It seems that Clorox

kills bacteria. There is no way to know if you are at risk, so a person that has been in saltwater as a safety measure, especially if you have an open wound, should wash with bleach after leaving the water. If you cut yourself while in the water, always wash the wound with bleach. That is what a doctor recommended and I always do so. I also have diabetes, and have stopped eating raw oysters even though I love them.

NOAA seeks comment on fall snapper season From Staff Reports PANAMA CITY BEACH — The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is seeking comment on a proposed rule that would increase catch quotas for

Gulf red snapper and possibly reopen the recreational season this fall. The rule outlines an 8.46 million-pound increase in the total allowable catch for red snapper, which would be divided between the

recreational and commercial sectors. The supplemental recreational season would open Oct. 1 and is expected to last for about 21 days if landings do not exceed the previous quota during the June season.

Jeremy Rose back in form at Ebro


From Staff Reports EBRO — Jeremy Rose prepped for the upcoming Juvenile Stakes with a win over highly regarded Keen Jolene Friday night at Ebro Greyhound Park. Eliminations for the Juvenile Stakes begin this week at the track. The finals will be held in early September as the Ebro gears for 2013 closing night on Sept. 21. All greyhounds that broke their maiden at Ebro this season and are under 2 years of age are eligible for the Juvenile. The defending champion is AJN Sweet Smoke, who currently is successfully campaigning at Southland in West Memphis, Ark. Jeremy Rose re-established himself on Friday night as one of the early favorites for the Juvenile. The Thurber Kennel dog

made a huge splash early in the season, then was on the inactive list for six weeks. He’s won two straight impressively since his return and appears to have completely regained his form. Keen Jolene ran second to him in the seventh race on the Evening card on Friday, their dominance to the extent the quiniela paid just $5.60. Keen Jolene remained at 13 wins on the meet, one behind track win leader Diane Crump who has 14. Lori Keith also has 13 victories after being denied in the seventh race on Saturday evening’s card. Boc’s Sportspice was the surprise winner, paying $44 across the board and teaming with place dog Flying Henriquez for an $88.60 quiniela. Two more noteworthy greyhounds were upset on Saturday. Mary Jo Terleski, winner of 11 races,

ran second to Superior Tally and stayed put at 11 triumphs for the summer. Kristina Kelly was third to Kells Orbit and remains at 10 wins. The track currently is in the later stages of the 2013 schedule and features live greyhound racing on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights with no matinee performances. Among the better payoffs late last week were Ww’s Discloser and Cals Sassa Frass combining for a $228.80 quiniela on Friday and Go Bon Smokefree and Flying Stormy producing a $211 quiniela on Saturday night. Ebro remains open for simulcasting and live performances seven days per week, and the Poker Room, with the Bad Beat Jackpot eclipsing $80,000, also is open seven days beginning at 9 a.m. on week days.

Kaplan steps downs as PCST head coach By JASON SHOOT

747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot PANAMA CITY BEACH — Jonathan Kaplan earned this vacation. He’s earned what awaits him after it, too. Kaplan, 33, is stepping down from his post as head coach of the Panama City Swim Team to accept a coaching position with Nova of Virginia Aquatics in Richmond, Va. Kaplan’s long-time assistant with the Tsunamis, Brian Haddad, has been named as Kaplan’s successor

with the PCST. Kaplan returned home early this week after a trip to Irvine, Calif., where PCST swimmers Michael Duderstadt and Jonathan Ratliff were competing in the U.S. Open Long Course Championships. The elite national meet served as Kaplan’s final competition as the Tsunamis’ head coach, and he was enjoying a mid-day stroll Friday as part of his self-described stay-at-home vacation. The local swim team has enjoyed considerable success since Kaplan took

over the program in 2006, but Kaplan was reluctant to tout his own success. “Maybe the vision and direction was provided by me, but it was impossible for us to achieve what we’ve achieved without the help of a lot of people,” he said. “One thing I’m most proud of is that we as a community has people who have come together with the same goal in mind, and that’s to take this small, semi-serious team and make it serve the community in a way nobody every imagined it could.”

Bonifay girl wins Florida Scholar Award By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — Lee and Kim Miller said they couldn’t be prouder of their daughter Zoie Miller, a 9-year-old fourth grader at Bethlehem School who recently received the Florida Scholar Award 2013 for achieving the highest level scores in the state on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in Reading. “I can’t even express how proud I am,” Lee said. “I’m honored to have her as my baby. Her and Jolie are my heart, and I’m blessed to have them as my babies.” Zoie said she enjoys music, reading, shooting guns, hanging out with friends,

going to the zoo and spending time on her Nook. She began studying for the FCAT last year, with the help of Reading Coach Gwynn Stafford. “I’d also like to thank Keyla Boswell, who has been a very good teacher, as well as Cheryl West, who has been a huge help,” Lee said. “I wanted to thank all the teachers and her grandparents who carry them to and from school and most of all I’d like to thank God for all his blessings.” Lee and Kim said she does all of her homework on her own and even takes time to help tutor her younger sister, Jolie. “I did it myself,” Zoie said. Zoie also received a letter from State Rep. Don Gaetz.

“On behalf of the Senate and State of Florida, I’m pleased to inform you that your outstanding scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test have earned you recognition as one of the highest performing students in the state,” Gaetz wrote. “Your achievement in Reading is among the best of all students in all schools in all counties in the state. Your scores stood out brilliantly not only in Holmes County but helped set the standard of academic excellence in Florida. “As your senator, I’m so proud of you. You bring honor to your family, your teachers at Cecilia Spears | The News Bethlehem School and your community.” Zoie Miller stands with her mother and Zoie said she wasn’t sure what she wants to be when she grows up, but she’s excited father, Lee and Kim Miller, and her about joining the school’s basketball team. younger sister Jolie Miller.

The council also heard from Fire Chief Tim Barnes that the city’s two fire trucks, the tanker and the engine, were involved in an accident Sunday night. Barnes said the two trucks were on their way to a car fire in Ebro when the fire engine started to skid in the rain after braking to avoid a vehicle which had suddenly stopped in front of the truck in the roadway. “They didn’t pull over, they just hit the brakes when they saw us,” Barnes said. The fire engine turned sideways on Highway 79, and the tanker truck was unable to stop and struck the fire engine.

Barnes said he would be surprised if the fire engine was not totaled by the insurance company. Barnes also said they were very lucky in that no other vehicles were involved in the accident and no one was seriously injured. The city is temporarily without a fire vehicle, and Barnes could not say how soon the city fire trucks could be returned to service. Engineer Nolan Baker of CDG Engineering of Dothan gave the council a brief report on the status of the city’s efforts to get FEMA funding to help with infrastructure repairs. “We have a list of projects to submit, but this is just a ballpark list to get us going,” Baker said. When asked how soon the city could expect to see money coming from FEMA, Baker said, “It’s a slow process.”

About 100 people have requested assistance from the volunteers, Mayor Michelle Cook said.

A patchwork of friends, family and community By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — On the third Thursday of every month, starting at 5:30 p.m., 48 women gather together at the First Baptist Church of Bonifay to share their latest accomplishments, troubles and news as the Holmes Valley Quilters Club. When the group met on Aug. 15, things were no different. “The Holmes Valley Quilters Club was started in 2008,” said President Roberta Tinkler. “We have a block of the month, which by the end of the year those twelve blocks will be sewn together to make one quilt for that year. We’ve got show-n-tell, were people bring their projects from home and show them to the club.” Tinkler said that there were also demonstrations held and this week Annette Lanham demonstrated how to make a four-in-one placemat. If you are interested in seeing this demonstration, visit She said there’s also a charity donation, like Quilts for Guardian Ad Litem, where they make quilts and donate them to charities.

“Quilts for Guardian Ad Litem is quilts that are made and given to children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect,” said Carolyn Jordan, a volunteer with the Guardian Ad Litem program. “When children are taken from their homes, especially homes exposed to meth, the children aren’t allowed to take anything with them. These blankets are something that belong to the children; something for them to have and to hold on to.” Jordan said she started as a volunteer in 2006. “All the kids that I’ve given these blankets to have been overjoyed to have something that is theirs,” she said. “The ladies here at the quilt club are generous to give so much of their time and talent to serve these kids.” Member Gerry Steverson said that the club was so much more then the club activities and projects. “It’s more then just learning about how to quilt, it’s about fellowship and networking with other quilters,” said Steverson. “It gives each of us a wonderful incentive to go home and work on the these projects so that we can come back and show what all our hard work has accomplished.”

Large constrictor snakes have killed fewer than 20 people in the United States since 1978.” Gentry explained the most common causes of a pet snake to bite is a feeding error, where the snake missed the food item and bit the owner’s hand, or a handling mistake where the snake clearly demonstrated its intent to bite but was handled anyway. Whether you’re a dog lover, cat fanatic or reptile enthusiast, there will always be risks to consider when bringing a pet into your home. It is your responsibility to thoroughly research them and be aware of the requirements and necessities that they entail. “The human animal bond with any pet should not be underestimated,” Gentry said. “The risks of owning a pet snake are no greater than owning a dog or cat and absolutely do not outweigh the benefits.”
