ranked the project first of five other projects seeking funding, Superintendent Joe Taylor told the Washington County School Board on Monday. The project was ranked “number one” by the committee in Tallahassee, which means the new school is deemed a critical need project. Taylor and a few board members went to Tallahassee on Aug. 15 to present the project
to the committee and returned feeling optimistic about their presentation.

Chipley Garden Club explores PCB Conservation Park Special to the News CHIPLEY — The first meeting of Chipley Garden Club’s 2013-14 club year was held Wednesday, Sept. 4, at the Gulf Beach Garden Clubhouse in Panama City Beach. The meeting was hosted by club member Jane Brewer who also serves as President/Gulf Beach GC. Protecting and conserving our waters, cherished natural areas and wildlife are fundamental to a healthy and vibrant Florida. The guest speaker for
the meeting was Panama City Beach Mayor Gayle Oberst. Major Oberst was very excited to share about the creation and development of Panama City Beach Conservation Park. She stated the park was developed from the desire to protect and balance natural resources while providing outdoor recreational opportunities. Mayor Oberst explained how millions of gallons of treated run-off and reclaimed water are piped daily into the park and distributed in an effort to re-
turn the park to its native state 100 years ago. This water once went into the bay! Thousands of longleaf pines have been replanted into the green lands park which encompasses almost 3000 acres in Bay County and Panama City Beach and now boasts over 24 miles of unpaved wilderness trails and almost a mile wetland boardwalks.

ttempted to go next door but was tackled by Wendel a Seaman, who still had the machete. The witness heard the yelling and arrived on scene and assisted Lloyd Seaman by getting Wendel Seaman off of him. Wendel Seaman fled in a 1989 Chevy truck, burgundy and silver in color bearing Florida Tag X714QC. He also removed a Colt rifle from the victim’s gun cabinet prior to leaving. It is believed Wendel Seaman is possibly heading toward the Tampa area. Wendel Seaman is being charged with attempted felony murder, grand theft motor vehicle and grand theft firearm. Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Wendel Seaman is asked to call the Jackson County Sheriff ’s Office at 482-9648, Crimestoppers at 526-5000, or your local law enforcement agency.
construction project ready for presentation to the committee in August began back in January when the school board started debating whether or not to build the new school on the same site where the current Kate M. Smith Elementary School sits or to build it somewhere else. Ultimately, the board decided to build the new school in a new location — a 22-acre tract of land the district owns between Brickyard Road and South Boulevard. The construction project is expected to cost $33 million, and will be funded over a two or three years, Taylor said. The new elementary school has
been a long time coming, Taylor said. “This has been a 20-year project.” Having construction at the new site will mean no disruption of classes at the elementary school, which was a factor in the decision to build at the new location. Greg Kelley of CRA Architects in Tallahassee, who are handling the construction project, congratulated the board on the successful presentation, which was held on Aug. 15. “We appreciate you, and all you have done to get us prepared for the presentation,” Board Chairman Terry Ellis told Kelley. Kelley said the project can move forward now that
the project has been accepted by the DOE. “We hear there is a $500 million budget excess in Tallahassee and the Legislature is going to be looking for ways to spend it,” Kelley said. “I recommend you get with your legislative delegation and get them involved.” Getting the project approved by the committee was a great achievement, especially being first in line, Ellis said. “Mr. Taylor did an great job with the presentation.” Board Member Susan Roberts agreed. “Mr. Taylor did an outstanding job,” she said. “It was definitely a big day for us,” Ellis added.
20/20 from page A1 following days of unexplained pain. Her relatives say he is responsible, but Wohlschlaeger was never charged with any crimes in connection to her death and maintains that he is innocent. On the 20/20 episode, Seitz’s relatives said the four-year marriage that ended with Seitz unconscious, face down on their bedroom floor. Her relatives told 20/20 that since Seitz’s death in 2010, her relatives have discovered that Wohlschlaeger “soaked her dry” both before and after she died, even cashing in on a $100,000 life insurance policy and having her use her $500,000 in liquid assets that she had going into the marriage to buy their home and bankroll their life together. Seitz’s daughter Sharon Yeomans said that they were wary of Wohlschlaeger’s financial footing even before her mother decided to marry him. “He came into the marriage with the clothes on his back. And he’s a doctor?” Yeomans told ABC. Her relatives were hesitant when Seitz rushed into her marriage with Wohlschlaeger in 2006 after just a three-month courtship.
Adding to that, Seitz had her own share of relationship issues in the past, as this was also her fifth marriage, relatives said. Her fourth husband Gene Seitz had left her $1 million following his death, and while she never told her relatives that she felt used during her four-year marriage to Wohlschlaeger, the claim to have found out after her death that she had felt used, according to Seitz’s personal journals. “How much longer am I going to have to financially support this man? He said he wasn’t going to do this to me. He said he was going to get a job. He’s constantly spending my money. Lord when is he going to get a job?” Seitz wrote in one entry, according to her daughter. Two of Wohlschlaeger’s other ex-wives were also on 20/20 saying that he also showed violent behavior during their marriages — facts that they did not disclose during the investigation into Seitz’s death. His third wife, Gloria Potts, was married to him from 1981 to 1995. When contacted by Seitz’s daughter, she said that he once hit her with a mallet in the back of her head and then
tried to smother her in their bed. Potts said that she was hospitalized after the incident and told doctors that she fell in the shower. When she later asked what he was doing, Potts said that Wohlschlaeger told her his actions were the result of a jellyfish sting. “He told me he had gotten stung by jellyfish when he was in China and that it was a reaction to the toxins,” Potts said. Potts did not leave Wohlschlaeger until a decade later — a move that she cannot rationally explain now, but when she did finally divorce him, she told police about the mallet incident and now has a restraining order against him. Wohlschlaeger’s fourth wife, Diana Yohn, was the woman he divorced just months before marrying Seitz. She told police that while she did not have firm proof, she felt that her regular migranes got significantly worse during her marriage to Wohlschlaeger and she felt he played a role in her pain. “I think that the man’s dangerous, personally,” she told police.
During the investigation into Seitz’s death, Wohlschlaeger reportedly told police that in the days leading up to her death, Seitz had been feeling ill and having one of her bi-annual bouts of migranes. Seitz’s mother and brother told ABC that they made a surprise visit to the home that Seitz and Wohlschlaeger shared in Loxley to check in on her. They said that Seitz felt so ill that she could not even get out of bed to greet them. When they arrived, Wohlschlaeger said that he had been out of town but when he got back he saw that a potted plant had been broken and he believed Seitz had possibly fallen down the stairs. She denied falling down the stairs. Seitz’s symptoms had improved by the time she said goodnight to her relatives on Sunday Feb. 28, 2010, according to the family. The next morning, they awoke to Wohlschlaeger screaming that his wife was unconscious. Wohlschlaeger had been sleeping on the couch, and on that Monday morning he said he went into the bedroom and found his wife lying on the floor, unconscious, and her lips were

This was not Wohlschlaeger’s first wife who died. Throughout his marriage to Seitz, he had told her and her relatives that his first wife, Lynn, died of leukemia. Following her mother’s death, Yeoman found an old newspaper clipping that reported that Lynn Mary Wohlschlaeger died after choking on a cough drop at the age of 25. The cause of death for Seitz was not as clear, how-
ever, as an autopsy listed the cause of death was inconclusive but that she had a series of blunt force head injuries. “Man, I hate to say this, but I think someone murdered my sister,” Seitz’s brother Chester told 20/20. The Alabama Attorney General has now reopened the investigation into Seitz’s death, though the former chiropractor no longer lives in the state. Wohlschlaeger now lives in Pensacola with his sixth wife, Maggie.

September brings many birthdays September is birthday time for many friends and loved ones in the circle of acquaintances of the writer. Lets go back to August to recognize Jean Weiss Taylor, the wife of Dr. Jack Taylor, Chipley Dentist, who celebrated her birthday on Aug. 24th, the same day as the Prattler. A second set of twins who had an Aug. 24 birthday are Kristan Stone and Katherine Stone, the twin daughters of Henry Stone and the granddaughters of Annie Stone, known at Stone’s Chipley Packing Company as “Ms. Annie.” In a recent conversation with the father, it PERRY’S was learned these two young ladies are PRATTLE Perry Wells college graduates already and presently in the work force with both having jobs in Panama City. Space ran out last week before Hester’s other niece and nephew were honored with their August birthdays. Byron White, son of Hester’s sister, Martiel Lucas White and husband, Harold White, had an Aug. 15 birthday. His sister, Tammie White Beasley, claimed August 21 as her special day. I felt honored to have had picture accompanying last week’s column, sent to me showing Perry, all dressed out in his finest, standing with his father, Hugh Wells. This photograph was sent in my birthday greetings by Cousin Janie Harrell, who lives in Brandon, Florida. Those regular attendees of the annual Brock Family Reunion know that Janie deserves title of “queen” of that event. The first person to mention in September birthdays is my father, Hugh Thomas Wells, who was born Sept. 9, 1905. Brother, Max Wells, came along on dad’s 31st birthday as he was born Sept. 9, 1936. Max will be glad to share the story that when our mother announced to daddy that the long awaited moment had arrived, he took time to load a bale of cotton from the accumulation on the front porch of the family home, before making the six-mile drive into Bonifay. Mama was dropped off at Dr. L. H. Paul’s Hospital, with daddy driving the few blocks to the Jack Childs cotton gin and placing the truck in the long line awaiting his time for unloading. He walked the short distance to the hospital to await the arrival of his fourth son in the sequence of four boys. The four girls

Julie and Virginia are the September birthday girls. born to our parents made the total of eight to reach adulthood. Further significance for September in our family is that our parents, Hugh Wells and Marie Harris Wells, married on Sept. 12, 1925. When our oldest sister, Minnie Lee Wells, was making wedding plans to marry James F. Russ, Jr., she chose Sept. 12, 1948. The service was held at an improvised altar erected before the fireplace in the only space in our old farm house that could be called a living room. Our uncle, Edward Harris, an ordained Elder in the Primitive Baptist Church, did the simple, but impressive, ceremony. And the list goes on. Patricia Gail Wells DeMontmollin, the youngest daughter of our parents, arrived on Sept. 18, 1945. Tim Wells and Debbie Wells’ daughter, Julie Wells, joins Gail for the Sept. 18 special day. Kelly Beth Wells, daughter of brother Clyde Wells, and wife, Esteena, has an Sept. 10 birthday. Our son Grant Wells, and wife, Lynn, presented us with one granddaughter, who arrived on Sept. 26, 1998. Jack E. Tison, married to our sister, Hazel Wells Tison ( well known newspaper writer of The Happy Corner) has a Sept. 23, 1925 arrival date. During the compiling of the Heritage of Washington County book, the Prattler learned that his longtime friend and 1944 Vernon High School classmate, Frederick Kolmetz, had parents whose marriage came on Sept. 12, 1925, the same day as our parents. Freddie N. Kolmetz and Maud Hightower Kolmetz, who met while he was working in the Ebro area for the J. R. Moody turpentine operation, and she was a young
school teacher, who was teaching in Red Head at the time. Frederick Kolmetz was born on Sept. 24, 1926. Their second son, Jobie M. Kolmetz, was born on Aug. 28, 1928 and the Prattler carelessly left his name out of last week’s August arrivals. My Army buddy from my military service in 1946-47, Julian B. Singleton from Sumter, S. C., has a Sept. 12, 1927 birthday, getting him close to my exact age. He is one of three members of my unit that I recall ever having any further contact with since departing Ft. Lewis, Washington in July 1947. Julian and wife, Esther, made a visit with us twenty years ago, and Hester and I reciprocated by making a trip to South Carolina for a visit with them. William E. (Billy) Ward, a native of Niceville, was in my Field Artillery Battalion and we maintained contact with he and wife, Susie, for a number of years. In recent years, the visits have been limited to telephone calls. A Douglas, Georgia native, Wilbur Russell Hanna, was also in the Ft. Lewis unit. He and his wife, Sadie, moved to Lecanto, Florida after our separation from the Army. The two of them found themselves in Chipley for a family reunion many years ago and made contact with us. Later, Sadie called me to report that Russell had died. September was the month my dad was determined to wind up the cotton picking. He would tell the children that they would not be allowed to start school until the cotton was all picked. Of course this never happened. We will get away from the topic of birthdays before next week arrives. See you then.

I could picture the pink-print feed sack off the shoulder dress which Lenora helped me make for the occasion. I remember going to 4-H Club Camp with Minnie Lee and Lenora. I remember double dating Chipley boys with Lenora. I remember riding horseback with Vernon boys, Bill Brock and Bill Squires not realizing that since we had never ridden before, we’d be so sore the next day that we could scarcely climb the steps at school. I remember wearing a dress belonging to Lenora for the Jr-Sr Banquet. I remember being envious of her cute petite stature and he long baby doll eyelashes. I remember being envious of Lenora because she got to feed the Dolphins at Marineland when she and Minnie went there on their Sr. trip. I just knew it was the bright red pedal pushers that won her that honor and I determined to have me some red pedal pushers when my senior class went there the next year. I have many cousins including Kathleen, my Uncle Josh’s daughter who was more like an older sister as she lived with our Grandma much of her growing up years. But we spent more time with Lenora and I grieve for the years of our adult lives when we have missed the fellowship of the intervening years. I look forward to an eternity where we can renew old acquaintances and just pick up where we left off all those years ago.

Governor announces $37 Million for Springs Projects Special to the News ORLANDO — On Sept. 4 Governor Rick Scott announced ten water quality, and water quantity, springs improvement projects. The projects include $1.2 million for the Jackson Blue Spring project in Jackson County. Funding for the spring projects was leveraged from a $10 million investment from the Florida Families First Budget, more than $1 million from Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) funding, and investments from local partners, for a total of nearly $37 million for springs projects. The Governor made the announcement at Wekiwa Springs State Park, where he was joined by water management officials, and state and local leaders. The announcement comes on the heels of last weeks’ commitment of Special to the News more than $130 million to restore estuaries in South On Sept. 4 Governor Rick Scott announced ten water quality, and water quantity, springs improvement Florida. projects.
Esto to pursue all available CDBG grants By CECILIA SPEARS
547-9414 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org ESTO — Esto Town Council held their first public hearing and approved moving forward with the steps necessary to pursue any available Community Development Block Grants that might be available to the town. The council members decided to pursue the grants during their Sept. 3 meeting, as recommended by Town Grant Writer Dennis Dingman. “These grants are for communities who want to attract businesses but there’s no infrastructure,” said Dingman. “If the community doesn’t provide the infrastructure, such as water and sewer connections, then the business would have to. In this case we got lucky because Dollar General was willing to do just that to be able to bring their business here.” Dingman said that they would pursue housing, commercial and economic development grants. “This will cover all pos-
sible grants,” he said. “You just have to do it once so that you won’t have to revise it every time a new grant comes out.” Council tabled the proposal from Palmer Electric Construction Co. to install radios, cables, an antenna and surge protectors at the wells for the amount of $3,575 to be in compliance with the Department of Environmental Protection. “My only problem is that we’ll not only have to put this in but we’ll have to maintain it and we still need a phone line to these wells for communication and control purposes,” said Town Council President Danny Powell. “I want to see if we can get the phone company to put us a line in and maybe it’ll be cheaper.” The council agreed with Council Member James Daniels request to get quotes on repairing and replacing any fire hydrants that are damaged or leaking. They also agreed with Daniels’ request to monitor the Town’s sidewalks. “We’ve been getting numerous complaints about people blocking the sidewalks with their junk lately,”

Esto Town Council listens closely as Town Grant Writer Dennis Dingman recommended that the Council approve of moving forward with the 2013 Community Development Block Grant applications during their Sept. 3 meeting. said Daniels. “I’ve seen it myself where someone had their large freezer right there on the sidewalk. That’s state property and if the Department of Transportation catches them they’ll either give them so long to move it or they’ll fine them.” The council also agreed with Pauline Wells, a representative of the National Caucus and Center on Black Aged, Inc., as she explained
about bringing in a state and federally funded program to train the local elderly population in current occupational skills. “The workforce is at the mercy of the young because they are trained with the skills required for the current technology in today’s workforce,” said Wells. “We take those 55 years and older and we improve their learning skills so that we can get
them employed with local non-profit and government entities, such as libraries and government offices.” The council also discussed giving Water Operator Bill Austin a $50 raise to his monthly salary and at first it died due to lack of motion. The council approved of a one-time $50 raise with Council member Darlene Madden voting “no.” “I think there’s people out there looking for work all the time and if we give it to him then we’d have to give it to everyone,” said Madden. “We’re not happy.” The council agreed to Powell’s suggestion that Austin be required to attend the council’s monthly meeting and that if he can not attend then he should send a detailed report of the month’s activities for the Council to review. Madden reported that they are going to purchase a shotgun from King’s Drug Store as a raffle to raise money for the TwoToe Tom Festival. “We’re also going to put a 10-foot by 10-foot brick patio beside the building,” said Madden. “The
bricks will be engraved and the patio will be called for things remembered. We’ll charge $100 for anyone who wants a message engraved on each brick and it will be in honor or memory of someone or it can be an announcement of someone’s birth or anniversary.” Madden said that she’s still looking into signs to be put on the park’s fence for businesses to advertise for $100 a year. “The only thing I see that could be a possible drawback is that we’ll have to maintain those signs,” said Powell. “If something happens to those signs under our care it will be our responsibility to replace them.” Madden also added that she was looking to put a possible newsletter on the Town of Esto’s website. “Just be careful of the content,” said Town Attorney Jeff Goodman. “You don’t want to put up anything that could come back to bite you later.” The next Esto Town Council meeting is set for 7 p.m. on Oct. 1 at the Esto Town Hall.

Hooked on Outdoors As I was driving one day last week I saw the bait boat headed east at about 7:30 a.m. I knew it must have been Jackie, and I knew he had been at it all night catching bait to sell at Deepwater Point. There is more than one way to have available bait in order to fish. One is to catch the bait yourself and another is to buy your bait off the various bait boats anchored at Deepwater Point. They offer Outdoor a mixture of live bait Life Scott Lindsey from cigar captainlindsey@ minnows to knology.net choffers to pilchards. Working on the water this year has been tough, be it guiding, charter boats, dive boats and of course selling bait. The 100-year rains that have been coming every week instead of every 100 years have made making a living fishing a living hell. The bays are flush with freshwater runoff that drives most bait back to the saltwater and offshore, making it almost impossible to catch enough to sell. Usually everyone can catch enough cigar minnows and herring in 20 drops with a sibiki rig at any channel marker in the pass and Gulf. Not so this year. I have caught a staggering 10 cigar minnows. If you have a tough job on the beach don’t grumble about it, just thank goodness you don’t have to get up at zero dark 30 every night and make a living chasing something that just about doesn’t exist. Don’t think these bait salesmen catch choffers and pilchards 15 minutes before you get there to buy a scoop. These guys are up all night chumming and cast netting in or about the Green Reef. Jackie was headed back from around Phillips Inlet, a trip of 25 miles from St. Andrew Bay and that’s just one way. He had to have left in the afternoon and arrived at the inlet about dark. On his boat it must have taken him 2 hours to just get there. I would imagine he threw his 14-foot cast net several hundred times before he headed back to Deepwater Point to offload his catch the next morning. These boys work hard for what they get, so please patronize the bait boat if you can on your way out to the Gulf.

Redfish like this one are too big to keep, but provide great fall action both off the beaches and inside the larger bays.
TUNE UP FOR FALL REDFISH
Now through October is prime time for Panhandle “channel bass” By FRANK SARGEANT
firstname.lastname@example.org Whether you call them reds, redfish, red drum, spot-tails or channel bass, the arrival of Sciaenops ocellatus in Panhandle waters pretty much coincides with the opening of football season—which would be now. A moment of appreciative silence, please. Of course, there are fair numbers of reds here pretty much all summer, but the “running of the bulls”, the arrival of the adult fish inshore, is a fall event. (By the way, though we speak of all big redfish as “bulls”, they are as likely to be cows or females.) Part of the reason reds become much more evident in fall as that they head inshore to spawn. Large schools of adult fish gather in the larger bays and passes, as well as in nearshore areas, to drop their eggs. The spawning activity is strongest around the full and new moons in September and October, extending into November in warm years according to biologists with the Florida Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg. The researchers report that male reds reach maturity at age 1 to 3, females at age 3 to 6. A 1-year-old west coast redfish is typically around 13 to 14 inches, a 3-year-old around 28 to 29 inches. The states harvest slot, 18 to 27 inches, is set up to allow spawners over the slot size to be released, and that strategy appears to be working in Panhandle waters. Redfish numbers are estimated to be good enough that the FFWCC added a second fish to the daily bag limit last year in the Panhandle and the northeast zone. The limit remains one daily in the south zone, with no closed season. The evident fall run of fish is made up of much larger individuals, however; most are a yard long or more and exceed 20 pounds in weight. Reds can get huge; over a lifespan extending up to 30 years, they’re known to reach weights up to 94
Redfish in the slot of 18 to 27 inches make great eating, and Panhandle anglers are allowed to harvest two daily. pounds, 2 ounces, the current IGFA record caught off a North Carolina beach in 1984. Most IGFA line-class records have also come from North Carolina and Virginia, but a few fish approaching 50 pounds are caught in Florida waters each year, most for the Indian River Lagoon. In Panhandle waters, any fish over 30 pounds is a tremendous trophy — though one you’ll have to record with photos or a fiberglass replica rather than a skin mount — all the big ones have to be released. Action on the beaches Panhandle reds in fall frequently prowl the same waters human beachgoers enjoy, and it’s not uncommon for knowledgeable anglers to do battle with reds over 36 inches long while casting from the surfline. Bull reds will attack just about any
large lure, but wobbling plugs 6 to 10 inches long, including the largest sizes of the Bomber Long A, do particularly well. They also readily grab Tsunami swimbaits and all sorts of plastic-tailed jigs. Topwater poppers can also draw strikes, particularly at dawn and dusk. Even more likely to put you into a wrestling match with a big red is a live bait 4 to 6 inches long; pinfish, grunts, large threadfins and finger mullet are all prime redfish fodder. They also readily take small crabs and large shrimp, though the latter might be hard to keep on the hook due to smaller fish nipping them off before the red can find them.These baits can all be fished on a “fish-finder” rig, with enough lead to hold bottom despite current and waves, and a size 3/0 or larger hook, depending on bait size.

Bulldogs defeat Blue Devils 47-0 By CECILIA SPEARS
547-9414 | @WCN_HCT email@example.com BONIFAY — The Holmes County Blue Devils felt their third loss of the season with the Liberty County Bulldogs overcoming them in Friday’s game with a score of 47-0.
It was during the first quarter that the Bulldogs scored the majority of their points, ending the first quarter with a score of 40-0. The first quarter was extended due to the injury of Blue Devil Stetson Edwards, who was taken away by ambulance. During the second quarter
the Blue Devils stepped up their defense and the Bulldogs scored their last touchdown for the game, ending the first half with a score of 47-0. Blue Devils’ Head Coach Brad Johnson described the year as

Prep ROUNDUP From Staff Reports
Blountstown crushes FAMU 45-0 TALLAHASSEE — Blountstown’s Corin Peterson and Ja’Vakiel Brigham each scored two touchdowns as the Tigers breezed past host FAMU 45-0. Brigham, who led the Tigers with 144yards rushing on just nine carries, had TD runs of 10 and 5 yards. His longest run was 47 yards. Peterson had only three carries, but two went for touchdowns on runs of 8 and 11 yards. Blountstown’s Alex Mayorga had an 11-yard touchdown run and Fabian Solomon scored from 3 yards out. Tigers kicker Andrew Bennett had a 21-yard field goal and six extra point kicks. Blountstown (2-0) led 24-0 at halftime. Shon Peterson led the Tigers’ defense with seven tackles. Peterson and Dewayne Laramore each had six while Hunter Jordan and C.J. Hires had four each. Laramore had 2.5 sacks. Blountstown plays at Graceville on Friday.
East Gadsden 41, Rutherford 34 HAVANA — Rutherford led by seven at the half, but East Gadsden surged to drop the Rams to 0-2. The Rams used early East Gadsden turnovers to move score two first-quarter touchdowns. They led 21-14 at the half. There was a blackout for a period in the second half and East Gadsden took over after the game resumed. Rutherford hosts Pensacola Escambia next week.
Special to Halifax Media Group BONIFAY — Last week the members of the 11-13 year old Bonifay Blue Devils arrived at practice and found themselves face to face with former New York Jets player Brad Baxter. During his visit he talked with the players about working hard, setting goals, and then doing what it takes to achieve the goals. He emphasized the importance of working as a team and let them know that it isn’t always about winning but how you play the game and to show good sportsmanship. Baxter brought with him sev-
Nichols, Graceville blow by Bozeman By BRAD MILNER
firstname.lastname@example.org 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner SAND HILLS — Bozeman couldn’t escape a Bratt Northview connection for the second straight week and the winless Bucks fared the same Friday. Graceville jumped on early miscues and took advantage of the Bucks’ poor pass defense in cruising to a 55-20 victory. The Tigers — coached by Ty Wise, who led Bratt Northview to the Class 1A state title last season — evened their record at 1-1. The Bucks fell to 0-2 after dropping their opener at Northview.
Graceville rebounded from an opening loss to Baker behind 226 yards passing from Preston Nichols. “Our kids were heartbroken last week,” Wise said. “Anytime you can get a win, it’s big for the kids. It was a good bounce back for us.” The opening kickoff teased to the Bucks’ woes when the ball dribbled only 4 yards to set up Graceville at the Bozeman 44. Jarrett Brogdon grabbed a 7-yard pass from Nichols six plays later to open the scoring. It was one of five touchdown passes for Nichols, all coming in the first half.

Bay stifles Port St. Joe By TIM CROFT
Halifax Media Group PORT ST. JOE — Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon praised his team for playing three-and-a-half tough quarters. Those final minutes, however, were gamechangers. The host Tiger Sharks (1-1) played the bigger, faster, deeper Bay Tornadoes (2-0) to a near-draw during the first three periods but seemed to run out of steam in the final quarter in losing 19-0 at Shark Field. Neither team managed much offense but the Tornadoes converted the few opportunities provided to escape with a win in a contest far closer than the score.
“This is about what I expected,” Bay coach Jimmy Longerbeam said. “We saw on film that they are a wellcoached team that plays hard. They played very hard. Take your hat off to them.” One week after the Tiger Sharks rolled up more than 400 yards of total offense, the teams could not combine for that amount. Bay totaled 293 yards, 88 of that coming on 27 tough carries by Raekwon Webb. Quarterback Xavier Longerbeam passed for 183 yards, 96 on a single play in the fourth quarter. “We played hard, lights out,” Gannon said. “We made them earn everything they got. We played hard,

Bozeman seemingly had defenders in place on several of the passes, but the ball found its way into the hands of Graceville’s receivers more often.

We came out healthy and came out with a win. We just need to keep rolling ahead.” In a first half dominated by punt teams, Port St. Joe had the first chance when a

fumbled snap on a Bay punt put the Tiger Sharks in business at the Tornado 16. Port St. Joe could go nowhere — a slant pass from Drew Lacour to Dwayne Griggs inside the 5 was broken up — and Bay stopped Port St. Joe on downs. An 8-yard punt by Griggs — who would leave the game in the third quarter with a concussion after a violent collision while on defense — just past the midpoint in the second quarter gave Bay its first scoring opportunity. The Tornadoes took over at the Tiger Shark 23 and Webb picked up the yardage in three carries, scoring from the 4. The extra point by Blake Whitmire made it 7-0. At halftime, the teams had combined for just 104 yards. The theme continued through the first nine minutes of the second half before Bay took over at its 27. The Tornadoes, with Port St. Joe appearing to tire slightly, marched 73 yards in 14 plays, consuming 7:12 of the clock. Webb slipped outside and through two tacklers on a 15yard jaunt to score; the extra point was off and it was 13-0. Port St. Joe was threeand-out before a wild series of plays led to Bay’s final touchdown. The Tornadoes failed to move and faced a thirdand-11 at their 23. A middle screen from the younger Longerbeam to Markeis Goodman appeared to break wide open for the touchdown, but the play was called back for an illegal block. Bay also was hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for protesting the call. From the 4, Longerbeam found Michael Layfield in the deep middle of the field. Layfield turned outside past his defender and was gone for a 96-yard touchdown. The extra point kick was off the mark again. “We had a couple of series where we probably needed to score because we weren’t going to get many chances against them,” Gannon said.
September 11, 2001 is a day permanently etched in history. 9-11 carries profound meaning for many people and stands in infamy along with events like Pearl Harbor and the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. The attacks on 9-11 resulted in a total of 2,996 fatalities. Among those were the victims on the four planes, civilians working in the towers and on the ground, military personnel and civilians in the Pentagon, and firstresponders to the scenes. It is believed that at least 200 people in the World Trade Center fell or jumped to their deaths from the burning towers because rescue was improbable at or above points of impact on the towers. Thousands of first responders and civilians entered the affected buildings to search for or help people exit the carnage. As of 2010, it is believed that more than 800 of these responders have also died, some say from illnesses related to their heroic efforts.

Elmore finished with 143 yards on six catches. Thompson was 10 of 22 for 177 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. “We need to put together 48 minutes, not bits and pieces,” Bozeman coach Loren Tillman said. “We have to get better.” Bozeman will need rapid improvement to contend in its next game at Port St. Joe. Graceville also has a test against visiting Blountstown.
rebuilding. “We’ve got three seniors and two juniors on the field,” said Johnson. “We’ve got three juniors hurt from the last game. The majority is just young and just learning to play varsity football.” A factor against them, said Johnson, was the amount of injuries in the first few games. “It’s been this way for the last couple of weeks,” he said. “We’ll have injuries and have to rotate players in that haven’t played. It’s hard to gain momentum when it’s like playing with a new team each time someone gets hurt.” Johnson explained the only thing the freshmen lack is experience. “These kids have a lot of heart and are playing hard,” he said. “They’re trying their hardest and working hard towards that goal down the road. We’ve got a ways to go but they’re making steady strides to improvement.”

Scott honors 136 veterans with Governor’s Veterans Service Award Special to Extra LAND O’LAKES — Joined by Adjutant General of Florida National Guard Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw Jr. and Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs Deputy Executive Director Col. Al Carter, Gov. Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott recently awarded 136 Florida veterans with the Governor’s Veterans Service Award for their service to Florida and the nation. “Our veterans are fearless heroes that have made countless sacrifices for Florida families and it is important that we take the time to frequently honor and thank them for their courage and their service. We will forever be indebted to our veterans for their service, and
this medal will serve as a testament of our thanks from Floridians everywhere,” Scott said. The ceremony was held at the Baldomero-Lopez State Veterans Nursing Home in Land O’Lakes, one of six veterans’ nursing homes in the state. During the ceremony, Scott highlighted the service of Florida veteran, Sergeant First Class Angel Torres-Mendez. Sgt. First Class Angel Torres-Mendez served in the U.S. Army from 19471974. During that time, he volunteered for Special Forces and completed his training at Fort Bragg. He was a Green Beret in Vietnam for three years and completed a total of 18 missions. During his time serving in the Army, he received numerous medals, including the
Combat Infantryman’s Badge, National Defense Service Medal, Parachute Badge, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal and four Good Conduct Medals. Today, Torres-Mendez often volunteers at local schools and community veteran’s events.
About the Florida Veterans Medal The Governor’s Veterans Service Award honors Floridians who have served in the U.S. military. The front of the medal depicts the Great Seal of the State of Florida. The back of the medal displays the five seals representing the five branches of U.S. military with an inscription that reads “Honoring Those Who Served.”

House call vets: angels on wheels Special to Extra
Whether it is your beloved barrel racer, Seabiscuit, or your honorable hunting companion, Rover, a trip to the veterinary clinic is usually not an activity of choice. Saving anxiety and stress for you and your pet, many clinics provide both small and large animal mobile veterinary services that will see your animal in the comfort of your own home. Packing up their knowledge and expertise in that black veterinarian bag, they will be at Seabiscuit’s or Rover’s side in no time at all. Over the years, most pet owners’ leisure time has become less leisurely. When something unexpected arises at work, or you lack the ability to bring your pet
to the nearest veterinary to work on the animals clinic, a house call vet is safely, said Easterwood. an excellent option. “Farm call veterinarians “There are many frequently have to rewarding aspects about operate in a ‘McGyver’ ambulatory practice, mode to get things such as getting to know done without all the your clients in their home conveniences of a clinic Pet Talk or farm settings,” said setting, but most things Dr. Leslie Easterwood, can be done.” Mobile assistant clinical professor at the vets, just like a regular vet clinic, Texas A&M College of Veterinary must have their facilities and Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. equipment regularly inspected. “It is nice to be able to know your Just because the animal clients on a more personal level, doesn’t fit in your living room getting to meet all the pets, kids doesn’t mean that it doesn’t and other family members.” warrant the care of a house call As opposed to stationary veterinarian. There are traveling veterinary practitioners, house vets for large farm animals and call veterinarians must be able house pets alike. “Farm (or to have the animals caught up house) calls are much more in a small pen or barn and have commonplace in large animal the proper facilities available cases than in small animal,”
Easterwood said. “Farm calls are actually a daily part of large animal practice, just because it is easier to transport the veterinarian and their supplies than the large animal patient in some cases.” There are many varieties of mobile veterinarians, so it is important to do your research ahead of time and find one that offers the exact services your pet needs. “Most ambulatory large animal veterinarians have trucks or SUVs that are equipped with supplies and the necessary equipment to do procedures on the farm,” Easterwood said. While the majority of them perform wellness check-ups and vaccinations, emergency services might not always be available through mobile vets.

Miss Florida Woodlands and Miss Florida Timberlands Pageant
As expected, rates for house call veterinarians tend to be higher than clinic visits because of the expense of travel. However, it is usually not difficult to find a reasonably priced mobile vet; you just have to do your research. Some mobile vets charge a flat rate “per trip” for needed services no matter the number of pets they’re treating on the visit. Traveling veterinarians, mobile vets, veterinarians on wheels or house call vets: though there are many different names for these miracle workers, their duties remain the same. They provide a stress-free solution for getting your pet — of any size — the care it needs. These angels on wheels can be a busy pet owner’s answer to a prayer.
the 2013 Miss Florida Woodlands and Miss Florida Timberlands Pageant will be held on Sept. 28 at the WISE Center Auditorium in DeFuniak Springs.

through everything, even things that are not there. Just recently, despite my attempts to conceal the issue, my wife spotted a small tear on my suit coat. It happened to be my favorite suit coat. I can recall exactly when and how the split occurred. I kept that information away from my wife as long as I possibly could; now I had to pay the piper. Early Monday morning we were off to the men’s store to purchase another suit. The whole way there, I was thinking of all the other things I could be doing at this time. Being the gracious and humble husband I am, I yielded to the prompting of my wife and we were off to the men’s store. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by a young man to which my wife said, “We’re here to buy a suit.” I figured I better step in before the conversation got out of control. “We’re looking for a grey suit.” “I understand,” said the young man as he thoughtfully pulled at his chin looking down the long row of suits. “And what color grey are you looking for?” “Say what,” I said. “What color grey are you looking for?” He repeated. As far as I was concerned, grey was grey and that was the color I was looking for. Nonetheless, I was in for a
surprise. “We have a variety of grey suits. There is a charcoal grey. Light grey. Dark grey.” He went on and on about the variety of grey colors in his shop. If I heard correctly, according to him, there were at least 50 shades of grey. Believe me, there was not anything romantic about that! All I wanted was a grey suit. To me, grey is grey is grey. I do not want my suit to be a fashion statement. In fact, I want my suit to be silent and say nothing at all. We walked out of the men’s store with a new suit and my wife had a wonderful smile on her face. I on the other hand, had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach realizing just how much this grey suit cost me. I have a new appreciation for what the apostle Paul said. “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 3:16 KJV). It is not the outside that really matters, but the inside of a man. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
