Chipley High School volleyball to play for Relay For Life

CHIPLEY — Vernon High School student Jessica Young gave the Washington County School Board an update on the district’s Students Working Against Tobacco program at Monday’s board meeting in Chipley. Young, 16, reported the SWAT and Tobacco Free Partnership students have been active at the Water-

melon Festival, Possum Festival and Relay for Life among other events, working to bring awareness of the anti-tobacco program to children and adults. “We’ve distributed posters, coloring books and other items,” Young said. “We’re always looking for new ways to get our message to the kids.” SWAT, along with the Tobacco Free Partnership, works to get the message out to school children that

using tobacco is not a good idea. SWAT is Florida’s statewide youth organization working to mobilize, educate and equip Florida youth to revolt against and de-glamorize Big Tobacco,” according to the website, Groups like SWAT and Tobacco Free Florida are working to make sure as many teens as possible never start using tobacco. Preventing tobacco use

and encouraging cessation among young people are critical in combating the tobacco epidemic because almost nine out of 10 smokers start by age 18. Despite the progress in reducing the number of smokers, an estimated 18,900 youth (younger than 18) in Florida will become new cigarette smokers this year, according to the website tobaccofreeflorida. org. Of every three young smokers, only one will quit,

Caryville swears in returning council members


CHIPLEY — The Spanish Trail Playhouse will perform “Daddy’s Dyin’ Who’s got the Will,” from Oct. 18-20. The play is nightly at 7 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are on sale at the playhouse business office and are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors, military and students. For more information, call 6389113 or visit www. spanishtrailplayhouse. com

and one of those remaining smokers will die from tobacco-related causes. “Data shows the number of youth who try or habitually use tobacco increases with each increasing grade level,” Tobacco Free Florida Bureau Chief Shannon Hughes said. “As students go back to school, now is a perfect time for parents to talk with their kids about the dangers of tobacco use.”


CHIPLEY — For most of us, our job is more than just work — it’s a large part of how we define ourselves, who we are. For Sunny Hills resident Virginia Lee Sword, having a job also means having a reason to get out among people and live her life once again. “It was about much more than just getting a job. It was about getting my self back,” Sword said during an interview on Thursday at the Goodwill Industries – Big Bend Inc. Career Training Center in Chipley.


October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The theme for 2013 is “Because We Are EQUAL to the Task.” NDEAM’s roots go back to 1945, when Congress enacted a law declaring the first week in October each year “National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week.” In 1962, the word “physically” was removed to acknowledge the employment needs and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities. In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to “National Disability Employment Awareness Month.” Source:

CARYVILLE — Returning Town Council Members Nora Curry and Jim Taylor were sworn in after running unopposed during the regular meeting of the Caryville Town Council on Oct. 8. Election of the council’s chairman and co-chairman was postponed until the next meeting because of the absence of Chairman Henry Chambers. “I want to give a hats off to Caryville Flea Market’s Paron Beeco,” Council Member Millard French said. “He has brought in the biggest crowd Caryville has ever seen with the flea market.” Beeco confirmed the crowd had reached record highs for this year’s Flea Across Florida, which was a flea market event on Sept. 13 and 14 stretching 272 miles from Live Oak to Pensacola held along U.S. 90. The event had a counted attendance of 6,839 visitors. “I’d like to take this chance to thank the Florida Department of Corrections for allowing us to use inmates for the majority of the labor,” Beeco said. “The band was requested to return, and we had over 45 vendors that most of them has assured they will return for the next Flea Across Florida, which is in 180 days and will only be a two-day event. We’ll also be holding a Christmas Holiday Sale on Dec. 13 and 14.” He also reported the council might have a food vendor to attend every Saturday offering lunch specials

Riley to be compensated for filling in at old job


638-0212 | @WCN_HCT WAUSAU — Gone, but not forgotten, former city clerk Margaret Riley was the topic of discussion at Thursday’s Wausau Town

Council meeting. Riley, who retired from the city in September, filled in a few days earlier this month when the town’s new clerk JoAnn Hayes was called out of town. “As you know, JoAnn had a bad situation down south,

and Margaret filled in for her several days,” Mayor B.J. Phillips said. “I think we should give her some sort of reimbursement for her days here.” Phillips said he thought Riley should be paid for her time, and the town

council agreed. “She shouldn’t be up here for free,” Phillips said. “Besides, we are going to need her help again at the end of the year, and we don’t want her telling

goodwill from page A1 Sword suffered a horseriding injury that left her in a coma for two months in 1998, and a few years later, she was involved in an almost fatal car wreck that left her needing reconstructive facial surgery. Her prolonged time spent on a respirator in the hospital left her with a whisper of a voice and chronic respiratory problems — and the traumatic ordeals left her unable to work for years. “Lee was referred to the Job Club by her vocational rehabilitation,” Employment Specialist CeCe Richards said. “When she got her, she had a bit of an attitude, but after a while, she was leading the club meetings.” “When I first came I just sat over in that corner,” Sword admits. “I wasn’t going to do anything. I just wanted to stay home on my

couch with my dog.” The Job Club is a weekly group that teaches job seekers soft skills, such as selfpresentation, dependability, motivation, team building and anger management, among other skills, Richards said. “Clients who are in our placement program are required to come to Job Club each week so they can learn skills such as how to interview or how to handle criticism from an employer,” Richards said. Goodwill Industries began in 1902 as a program to collect discarded items then put disadvantaged people to work repairing the items so they could support themselves and their families, said Heather Gioia, director of public relations for Goodwill Industries – Big Bend. “For years the empha-

testing for GED. After that, we have classes in various computer skills and even certification.” Richards said Goodwill Industries – Big Bend works with employers in the area, including temp services such as Manpower in Dothan, to connect employees with jobs. “We have employers who come to us first, because they know what kind of training we are giving our employees,” Richards said. Goodwill Industries – Big Bend also has contract services for janitorial

and landscaping jobs that are manned by clients, 80 percent of whom are disabled. The contract program works through RESPECT, a Florida-based, legislatively created program that allows governmental entities to purchase commodities and services they need while providing employment opportunities to Floridians with disabilities. For Virginia Lee Sword, what Goodwill Industries – Big Bend was able to do was more than just find her a job. “I came out of my shell,” Sword said. “At first, I was just showing up, but after a while, Miss CeCe really got to me.” A little over a year ago, Sword was hired by Sam’s Club in Panama City Beach, where she currently works as a greeter. Richards says

Sword is constantly being praised by her employers for her bubbly personality and work ethic. “At first it was tough, I didn’t think I could stand and work for eight hours,” Sword said. “But over time, I built up to it, and now I can work no problem.” Sword is still undergoing rehabilitation for her respiratory and vocal ailments, but she no longer sits at home all day watching TV. “My mother encouraged me to continue to come to Job Club, and if it wasn’t for Job Club and Miss CeCe, I don’t think I would be where I am today,” Sword said. “Sam’s Club has also been great. They’ve really helped me and have been very supportive of me,” Sword said. “And besides, they pay me to talk to people. I love my job.”

us she’s busy,” he added, jokingly. Phillips said Riley said she did not care whether she was paid or not. Councilman Dallas Carter made a motion that Riley be paid for her time at her former rate of pay, and the council approved the motion. Phillips said September had been a busy month for the city. Not only had it changed city clerks, the town council had had to hold public hearings and approve a budget for next year, and they also had dealt with FEMA and a pair of Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program applications the city submitted seeking funds to make improvements in two city parks. One $200,000 grant would be used to improve the Dalton Carter Recreation

Center, also known as the Possum Palace, where the city would like to resurface the parking lot, renovate the tennis courts, picnic facilities, basketball courts and restrooms, add an exercise trail, upgrade the camping area and add additional playground equipment among other improvements. The other $200,000 would go toward improvements at George Rogers Park, where the city hopes to renovate the playground, enhance the handicapped parking area and renovate the restrooms, picnic facilities and baseball field. The recreation committee would also like to add additional playground equipment, a basketball court, additional parking at the skateboard park, an exercise trail and a covered picnic facility, as well as expand the skateboard park. “Everything has been

up in the air for the past 3045 days. It’s been a hectic month,” Phillips said. Councilwoman Marlene Blount gave the council an update on the city’s water bill collections. They discussed six accounts specifically that have either been shut off or are about to be shut off, but overall, the city has only $3,600 in accounts that are in arrears. “That’s a lot better than the $28,000 it was last year,” Phillips said. “It’s a bad situation for some of these people, but something has to be done about it,” Councilman Charles Park Sr said. The city has instituted a policy of cutting off water services on the 25th of the month once an account goes 30 days in arrears. “We just have to do it. We can’t let it get back up like it was,” Phillips said.

Beeco also requested the council consider connecting water to be available at the flea market and suggested it be locked up and regulated like the electricity. Caryville Volunteer Fire Department will hold a fall festival at the fire department on Oct. 26. The council approved of Caryville’s Halloween observance from 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 31. French recommended that the Caryville Fire Department look into the possibility of establishing a Women’s Auxiliary Club. “Those women can do

just about anything, and I believe that you’re missing out on a lot of additional funds by not utilizing their talent and hard work,” French said. Caryville Town Attorney Lyndia Spears informed the council she received a letter for the Holmes County Supervisor of Elections requesting Spears write a letter to verify she has addressed an issue involving French’s residency. Spears apologized about the inconvenience, but as a formality, they must take the steps required to dispel any doubt of his residency. “Caryville has a very spe-

We’ve had issues like this arise before, and all I advised you to do is to just respond.” French explained his property was inherited and was split between his brother and him. He said he took the property with the house and his brother took the property with the café, French’s Restaurant. The council approved of allowing Taylor to look into the possibility of holding a

gospel sing at the Caryville Worm Fiddling Building. “Bonifay’s done away with their all-night gospel sing, so I think this is an excellent opportunity to give it a shot,” Taylor said. Before approving the monthly budget, French inquired about a payment of $300, which was confirmed to be payment for four months of rent for a portable toilet at the flea market. Beeco informed the council the toilet was cleaned once a month at a charge of $75 but had been locked up and unable to be used since Sept. 15. He also informed the council that the portable

In Our VIEW Florida is suing Georgia over consuming too much of the fresh water that should be flowing through the Peach State to the estuaries and oyster beds of the Panhandle. It is a lawsuit that has been a long time coming, as the two states have argued over the flow of water to the Apalachicola Bay for years. The legal action asks the U.S. Supreme Court to take some pretty significant steps, such as capping Georgia’s water use at 1992 levels. If only Florida was as serious about its own water use and conservation as it is about the water use of its neighbor to the north. The dispute with Georgia relates to withdrawals from Lake Lanier, a reservoir northeast of metro Atlanta on the Chattahoochee River that provides water to the South’s largest population center. The river is part of a system that ultimately forms the Apalachicola River, which flows to the Gulf of Mexico through the Florida Panhandle. Low water flows caused by Atlanta’s excessive consumption have increased salinity in Apalachicola Bay, killing oysters and devastating the seafood industry there. Florida is seeking an equitable distribution of the water in the system, and understandably so. “Georgia has refused to fairly share the waters that flow between our two states, so to stop Georgia’s unmitigated consumption of water we have brought the matter before the U.S. Supreme Court,” Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement. Scott deserves credit for pursuing the lawsuit.

Hopefully he’ll treat Florida’s water use with a similar level of seriousness and urgency when lawmakers next pursue legislation protecting springs. Scott’s statement focused on the economic impact of reduced freshwater flows on the oyster industry and that region’s economy. The reduction of spring flows from groundwater withdrawals has a similar potential to harm tourism and the natural resources in our region, not to mention add to the state’s growing sinkhole problem and dwindling supply of fresh groundwater. The Central Florida Water Initiative recently declared that Orlando is just about drawing the maximum amount from the aquifer that it can before causing major environmental harm — that is, more harm than is already being inflicted. Atlanta’s unsustainable use of surface water threatens our state’s environment and economy. That is indisputable. Florida’s use of groundwater poses similar threats to our environment and economy, and we don’t need the Supreme Court to step in to address the issue. What we do need is for Scott and the Legislature to get serious about overhauling our state’s antiquated water policy that focuses on conservation too little and allows for the massive giveaway of our dwindling water supply too freely. We urge our legislative delegation to make saving our steadily declining water supply a priority in the next legislative session.

He related an instance of shooting a large fox where the pelt brought him $16 from which he paid $14 for a Gramaphone ordered from Sears Roebuck and Company. Joel Potter met and married Velma Sirmans Potter from Dupont, Georgia after she came to Florida to teach school.

Upon returning home, he resumed his farming venture and was elected again to the Florida House of Representatives in 1945. While in this position, he is credited with securing legislation which brought the first Washington County Hospital to Washington County in 1947. Mrs. Potter died in 1968

My search gave the scientific name as cyssytha/cuscuta or clematis Virginiana, a non-ornamental vine with no leaves and small yellow blooms. A common name is Devil’s gut and it comes from the laurel family. I was more interested in Mr. Drake’s family’s farmstead as he described it. It is located west of Westville with the log home and detached kitchen intact. Brick chimneys on either side of the main house and the one for the kitchen building are standing in good condition. Bought by his grandparents, the T.W. Miller family, the cabin was built in 1848, the same year that Holmes County was formed as Florida’s 27th County. The logs and heart pine siding are in excellent condition. I assume the glass windows were a recent addition. Outbuildings include the barn, the corn crib, two chicken houses, a smoke house, a black smith shop, and a shed housing two syrup-making vats enclosed in brick furnaces with chimneys. Directly across from the house,

the buggy or wagon shed stands. Inside can be seen the framework for a horse drawn buggy and a mule drawn wagon. The smoke house is reminiscent of the days when farms were entirely self-sufficient and meat was raised and cured on the farm. The clothesline harks back to the day when the weekly laundry was boiled in a wash pot, scrubbed on a wash board, rinsed in zinc tubs from water drawn from an open well and hung outdoors to dry. The two syrup making vats make me think they were heavily into sugar cane production and syrup making or else one of the vats may have been used entirely for hog killing. They may have been scalded in one of the vats and then it would have been cleaned and dried to render the lard that the family would have used for preparing the family meals. The property is now corporately owned and is used for game preservation and hunting, so it is not accessible to the public, but would be an ideal place to visit as a testimony to the way of life in frontier Holmes County when the Holmes County Court House was at Cero Gordo.

Washington County News | A5

CRA discusses grants for residential properties CHIPLEY — The Chipley Redevelopment Authority board members discussed grant programs for the coming year during Thursday’s workshop at the Washington County Chamber of Commerce building. “We have been discussing offering special electrical grants to the downtown property owners for electrical repair,” CRA Director Ted Everett said. The grants would be for $6,000 and would be used to bring the wiring in the historic downtown district up to code. “This is one of the biggest issues we face in downtown according to the fire chief,” Everett said. “The old wiring in these buildings could become a fire hazard.” The grants would re-

quire a 25 percent match from the building owners, which would mean $1,500 from the owner gets $4,500 from the CRA toward electrical repairs. “How much electrical work would that really pay for?” asked CRA Chairwoman Amy Wiwi. Member Zenna Corbin said that she had paid $16,000 to update her building, but added that she had requested some extra work done as well. Wiwi asked if the grant could be used for the electrical work needed for adding a new office to an existing building or running cable for internet or phone lines. “My thought would be first lets get the buildings up to code,” Everett said. “And just strictly electrical.” “If the building is still on fuses, then it needs to have its electrical wiring updated,” Member Debbie Goulding said.

The CRA plans to set aside funds for 26 grants of $6,000 each, which will be available for properties within the CRA district. The board also discussed setting aside funds to offer $1,000 residential grants for private homes within the CRA district, which is something the CRA has not offered in the past. The board discussed requiring a 10 percent match from the homeowner, and decided the work that the grants would cover could be any work normally covered in a CRA façade grant — windows, door, painting, wood replacement. The grants are not available yet, but are still in the planning stage, Everett said. The CRA also discussed working with the Washington County Arts Council to get the city’s fire hydrants painted as well as one day getting a mural painted in

Holmes County golf teams meet at Dogwood Lakes By Carrie Hayford Special to Halifax Media BONIFAY — Recently, local schools met at Dogwood Lakes Country Club to tee off in a match up preparing for districts. Playing in the event were Bethlehem High School, Holmes County High School, Ponce de Leon High School, and Marianna High School. The Marianna Bulldogs came out on top. Leading the team in the number one spot, with a score of 38, was senior Kody Bryan. The total score for the Bulldogs was 167,

beating the Bethlehem Wildcats by 11 strokes. Eli Hendrix, a BHS Junior, secured the number one position on the Wildcats team with a score of a 43. Due to a short number of players, HCHS and PDL were not eligible to qualify in the match up, as each team needed four players to compete. Playing for PDL was Nick Price, and holding the top spot for Holmes County High was senior, Seth Taylor. Bethlehem and Holmes County High met for a match on Sept. 16, and the Wildcats came out victorious with a 198 for the win

Vernon punishes Holmes County 51-7 By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT VERNON — The Vernon Yellow Jackets took control of the ball in the first quarter and never looked back, thrashing the Holmes County High School Blue Devils 51-7 Friday night in Vernon. Holmes County drew first blood when the Blue Devils recovered a fumbled Vernon snap and Chad Leavins rushed for 53 yards on three plays to score the Blue Devils’ only touchdown at the 9:07 mark in the opening quarter. John Etheridge’s kick was good for the extra point. On their next possession, the Yellow Jackets drove 51 yards with Austin Brown rushing 26 yards on two carries for consecutive first downs, putting Vernon on the Holmes County 25-yard line. Then Darrius Peterson ran it in on a sweep to score, only to have the touchdown called back on a holding call. Three Vernon TDs were voided due to flags for the evening, including a 90-yard kick return by Julian Silas — Vernon’s fouls kept the 51-7 drubbing even more lopsided. Not to be deterred, Aaron

...the Yellow Jackets struck again when Brown picked off a Blue Devils pass, inside the Vernon 30 and returned it 75 yards for a touchdown. Bowers scored on a 40-yard scamper from the reverse on the next play. Bowers also kicked the extra point to tie the score up 7-7 with 7:12 to play in the first quarter. From that point on, it was all Vernon. Three seconds into the second quarter, Darrius Peterson went up the middle from the 4-yard line to score for the Yellow Jackets, capping a 88-yard, 12-play drive. The extra point attempt was blocked but Vernon went up 13-7. With 8:17 to play in the half, the Yellow Jackets found the end zone again, this time Alex Oneil scampered 31 yards for six points and quarterback Tristan Porter added the PAT, even though he dropped the ball en route to the goal line and had to scoop it back up before scoring.

Now with a 21-7 lead, the Yellow Jackets struck again when Brown picked off a Blue Devils pass inside the Vernon 30 and returned it 75 yards for a touchdown. Silas added the two point conversion this time, and Vernon had a 29-7 edge with 3:41 left to play in the half. Oneil found paydirt again with 12 seconds left in the half, capping a 5-play drive that started on the Holmes County 40. Porter then connected with Oneil on a short screen pass for the PAT, giving the Yellow Jackets a 37-7 lead at the half. Just 21 seconds into the third quarter, Vernon scored again when Silas ran 68 yards to paydirt. Bowers’ kick was good and the score was 44-7 — and the mercy rule set the clock to running for the rest of the half and Vernon started playing the rest of the bench. In the final seconds of the third quarter, Peterson added the final touchdown of the evening on a sweep from inside the Holmes County 10. Bowers’ final kick of the night was good to seal the evening.

Sometimes being in hot water is a good thing. When we hear the words “you’re in hot water now,” it’s usually not a good thing. But with the H20 Plus program from your local electric cooperative, those words take on a whole new meaning.When you sign up for H20 Plus, we’ll equip your water heater (at no cost to you) with a special device that allows us to cycle the unit for short periods of time. The more water heaters we have in the H20 Plus program, the bigger the impact. Our members still have plenty of hot water and our co-ops are better equipped to handle energy demand & control wholesale power costs. It’s a win-win situation.

Domestic violence will never stop if we do not get involved,” she said. “It takes a community to stop this abuse. Thank you in advance for your support; if you make a step to get involved, you never know who might follow in your steps.” Entertainment included local young artists as well as demonstrations by Trinity Martial Arts and drama skits by the Carmel youth drama team, Take 2. Featured entertainment was free concerts by gospel group The Drummonds and country singer Julie Roberts.

Vernon’s Class of 1983 celebrates 30-year reunion By Susan Land Steverson Special to Extra

VERNON — Members of Vernon’s Class of 1983 came together Oct. 4-5 to celebrate their 30-year reunion. They rode in the Homecoming parade and then enjoyed Vernon’s victory over Cottondale on Friday night. Two of the members had daughters who were finalists for the coveted title of Homecoming Queen: Jackie Coatney’s daughter Jaclyn and Annette Lewis Weeks’ daughter Michaela, who was crowned queen. Congratulations from the Class of ’83 to both girls. On Saturday night, 24 classmates and their spouses met at Mike’s Cafe and Oyster Bar in Panama City Beach. Class President Ava Smith presided over the occasion. Sarah Andrews Harris led in prayer, and two candles were lit in memory of classmates Angela Rigetta and Darry Alterio. Members watched a slideshow of photos from

their school years and previous reunions as they ate. A special treat was provided by Sarah Andrews Harris, who sang “The Way We Were,” which she performed at their graduation 30 years ago. Other

highlights of the evening included a “Remember When” segment, led by Nancy Maher Griffin. Each class member was asked to provide a favorite memory from their school years. Some remembered particular classes

like home economics, while others remembered fights, and several shared memories of Mrs. Whitehurst’s class. Next, Tonya Reynolds Boston asked everyone “Where Are They Now?” about former class members that they

haven’t seen in a while or who left Vernon before graduation. Last, the class conducted a prize drawing. Every class member received a prize. Special prizes were provided by Dee’s Restaurant in Vernon, Radio Shack in Chipley, King’s Discount Drugs and King’s Outdoors in Chipley, Castaway Restaurant in Bonifay and Colonial Restaurant in Chipley. The class was very grateful to these local businesses whose contributions were in excess of $300. The 30-year reunion proved to be a great success, but the class missed quite a few classmates who had to work or could not attend for other reasons. Before leaving, the class vowed to get together more often, and Ava mentioned the desire to have a 50’s blast in two years when we reach the age of 50. Any member who did not attend Saturday night’s reunion can get a copy of the DVD from Susan Land Steverson at 547-5786.

Friendship with deaf dog requires no sound and body posture, which needs to be consistently delivered, and just like any other dog, you must not let them get away with bad behavior.” Another training technique helpful for communicating with a deaf dog is to train him to respond to a vibrating collar. A push of the radio transmitter causes a vibration in the collar, and you can then condition your dog that this is a fantastic opportunity for a reward. After multiple positive rewards, their attention should turn toward you immediately after signaling, so you can then provide further instruction. Keep in mind that the vibration from the collar should never have a negative connotation, or your dog will be afraid to respond in the future. Having them come to

you without hesitation is extremely important, so always be sure to provide positive feedback. “We hike in the national forests with him off leash, and he actually is easier to manage than the other dog, who can hear just fine,” Nelson said about his deaf dog. “We always have the safety net of the vibrating collar but rarely use it, and he has learned to check back visually and will come to a hand sign without delay.” Another common misconception of deaf dogs is that they are aggressive. This makes many people question whether it is safe to have a deaf dog in their home around children. “It is not deafness which determines suitability of a dog to be with children, but the personality of the dog, the child and the home environment,”

Evoked Response). This test can be costly, but it is extremely accurate and will let you know if your dog is partially or wholly deaf. “If you came and interacted with our two dogs, you would not be aware that one is deaf, as we talk to him just like the other dog and the hand signs are subtle,” Nelson said. “He has been totally deaf since birth and is a wonderful boy that loves people, animals and children.” Despite the few adaptations you must make for training and living with a deaf dog, the love and appreciation you receive far outweighs any perceived adversity from their disabilities. The friendship between a human and their dog, hearing or not, knows no boundaries.


Guidelines and deadlines

Nelson said. “Deafness does not mean that the dog is bad for this or that; the dog’s personality and the owners’ training determine those results.” Deaf dogs can be startled when touched unexpectedly, so establishing a “communication spot” that you touch when you need to wake them up is a good idea. “We have trained him that the top back of his head is the communication spot, and when we touch it and he is sleeping, he immediately begins wagging his tail because he knows it is one of us,” Nelson said. Certain breeds of dogs, such as Dalmatians, carry a gene that causes deafness. If the deafness isn’t genetic, it is still common for a dog to lose hearing from an ear injury or simply from old age, just like people. If you believe Spot might be deaf, there are various tests you can perform. Simple at-home tests work just fine, like clapping your hands together or ringing a bell, but the most reliable way to test for deafness is called BAER testing (Brainstorm Auditory

Florida state parks system wins 3rd gold medal Special to Extra TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott announced at Florida Cabinet meeting on Oct. 10 that Florida state parks are now the nation’s only three-time winner of the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in the management of state park systems. “I am thrilled that the Florida Park Service continues to celebrate Florida,” Scott said. “Winning this award for the third time continues to show that the Sunshine State is working hard to ensure Florida families and tourists are able to enjoy our natural treasures, and I want to thank all of our employees and volunteers who helped make this possible.” The award was presented during the National Recreation and Park Association’s annual Congress and Exposition in Houston. The association, in partnership

with the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration, presents the award to communities that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management and administrating a complex system of state parks. Scott and the Florida Cabinet recognized the Florida Park Service on Thursday. This achievement makes Florida the only system in the nation to win a third gold medal. In fact, no other system has ever won two gold medals, and systems are not allowed to apply for the award within five years of receiving it. Considerations for this award were based on the agency’s ability to address needs of those it serves through collective energies of citizens, staff and elected officials. “The fact that the Florida Park Service has won this

“The fact that the Florida Park Service has won this prestigious national award three times, while no other state has ever won twice, shows the dedication of our employees and volunteers to manage the resources that provide vast opportunities for Floridians and visitors to enjoy our natural resources.” Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. Department of Environmental Protection secretary prestigious national award three times, while no other state has ever won twice, shows the dedication of our employees and volunteers to manage the resources that provide vast opportunities for Floridians and visitors to enjoy our natural resources,” said DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. “More

than 25 million people visit these award-winning state parks each year, and we are proud to continue to show how special Florida is to all those who visit.” Since 1935, Florida’s Park Service have been working to provide recreational activities for the community,

while preserving, protecting, interpreting and restoring natural resources in the area. During the 2012-2013 fiscal year, parks experienced a record-breaking number of visitors. During this time period, 25,575,794 people visited parks. This resulted in an increase of 592,615 from the previous year. Increasing access to these state parks has been one of Vinyard’s top priorities. “I am honored that Florida State Parks is the winner of our third national gold medal,” said Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione. “Our staff members, citizen support organizations, volunteers and concessionaires work hard every day to welcome visitors to enjoy our natural and cultural resources.” For more information on the awards, visit awards or
