WAUSAU — Thursday’s Town Council meeting in Wausau was bittersweet with the council bidding farewell to longtime clerk Margaret Riley and honoring council member Charles Park Sr. for more than 20 years of service. Riley announced her plans to retire during the June 13 council meeting after 17 years of service as city clerk. “I appreciate every one of you, and I am going to miss you all,” Riley said to the council. In August, the council hired JoAnn Hayes to take Riley’s place as city clerk, but Riley stayed on to train her replacement and to help guide the city through the budgeting process, which was completed Thursday night with the council’s adoption of the 2013-14 budget. Former mayor Roger Hagan was on hand to present Riley with her plaque. “I really appreciate you all letting me be a part of this presentation,” Hagan said. “I can’t tell you how hard Margaret has worked for the city of Wausau over the years.” Also at Thursday’s meeting was Tom Conley of the Florida League of Cities, who presented a certificate of appreciation from the state to council member Charles Park Sr. for his 20-plus

Rodeo returns this weekend Police seek shoplifting suspects By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — It’s that time again — the time of year that brings anywhere between 17,000 and 50,000 people to Bonifay. It’s time for Northwest Florida’s largest rodeo and event, the 69th annual Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. “We’ve got a variety of shows lined up that is going to be good,” Rodeo Chairman Charlie Lawry said. “We’ve got our new stock contractor, 4L & Diamond S Rodeo Co. and number of special guests including announcer Jerry Todd, clown and barrelman Lecile Harris, bull fighters Matt Baldwin and Buddy Bush and specialty acts Gena Cox, Melody McCray and Jessica Blair. We’ve also got Kevin Matais on the scoreboard and Mark Evans on sound.” Lawry said the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo is the largest rodeo in this part of the country. “Most rodeos in this area go for two days tops, but to go for three days straight is rare for this area,” he said. “This rodeo is also ­ nationally known for its grass and grand entry. The only other grass arena is in Oregon.” Grass had its advantages and disadvantages, Lawry said. “A lot of riders and participants don’t like grass because there’s not as much grip as dirt; that’s why barrel racing isn’t done as much as it use to at the rodeo,” he said. “Personally I like it because I find it more of a challenge. and I like a good challenge.” He gave an update on the rodeo circuit, saying the rules had changed as far as how many rodeos count toward the national competition. “It used to be that you could go to as many rodeos you wanted to, and it would count toward the nationals,” Lawry said. “Now they’ve limited it to 85 rodeos, so the participants have been a little more selective of where they ride.” The rodeo will start at 7:30 p.m. with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at Memorial Field. For more information or to buy tickets, visit Tickets are also available at Community South Credit Union, Doc’s Market, First Federal Bank of Florida, Bowen Hardware, Piggly Wiggly and the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce.

CHIPLEY — Chipley police are looking for three women suspected of stealing computers from Wal-Mart on Sept. 12. According to police, three black women entered the Chipley Wal-Mart on Sept. 12 together and proceeded to the electronics section of the store, where they selected three laptop computers that had been placed out as discounted items. Police say the women took the items to the men’s department, where electronic security devices were removed from the boxes. The women then concealed the laptop computers in stolen canvas bags and/or purses and exited the store. The Chipley Police Department is

WAUSAU from page A1 years of service to the city of Wausau. Parks was presented with a framed copy of a resolution of the Florida League of Cities Board of Directors recognizing his 20 years of elected service and commending him for his “unselfish commitment to municipal leadership and governance.” “Municipal leaders strive for excellence in the governance of their city, town or village, and commit themselves to providing quality services, governing effectively and working to improve the quality of life for their communities,” Conley said. “Several terms in office is a high compliment voters give to an official, and with these years of experience comes a strengthening of wisdom, discernment and strong leadership skills that brings tremendous value to the municipal governments of Florida.” In other business, the town council approved the adoption of the 2013-14 budget and approved resolutions allowing the engineering firm Preble-Rish to seek grants for improvements at the Possum Palace and George M. Rogers Park on the town’s behalf. “We want to do some upgrades at the Possum Palace, redo the roads, upgrade the lighting and maybe build an exercise trail,” Mayor B.J. Phillips said. “At Rogers Park, we want to try and get a grant to improve the size of the skate park, upgrade the little pavilion and the ball park a little bit,” he said. Preble-Rish also was tasked by the council with preparing and submitting two projects to the Water Management grant cycle for a pumping station to increase pressure on Pioneer Road West, and a pumping station on Mud Hill Road to allow water service to Washington County Public Works. The council also set the town’s Halloween hours as 5-7 p.m. Oct. 31.

VIOLENCE from page A1 to help out anyone in need. Never could anyone imagine Connie being a victim of domestic violence … ever! Skip a few years, and after a failed teen marriage, my mother was introduced to my father in 1985. It was never perfect, but he would never hurt her. After a few months of dating, they found out they were pregnant! What a wonderful thing … how happy everyone would be — but not for long. Because it was the “right” thing to do, they were married in May of 1986. That night was the first time he hit her. Five months pregnant with their baby girl, he wanted to party, but she did not, so he took out his 9 mm semiautomatic pistol and hit her with the butt of it. He would never do it again, though. He was so sorry, and he was just so drunk, he couldn’t have known what he was doing. She stayed. Going into labor on Nov. 23, 1986, she was very happy to be bringing this baby into the world. But because abuse is not only physical, but mental and emotional, and my father had such a hold on her, she couldn’t see past it. Labor can be painful and unbearable for a lot of women. My mother’s abuser was determined to have complete control over her, as most abusers do, and refused to allow her to have any form of pain medication. He wasn’t allowing his baby to come into the world “doped up.” Never once thinking of the pain, she told the hospital staff she didn’t need anything. What an unimaginable thing to be under such a powerful hold because of abuse and fear. After my birth, nothing got better. My mother got involved in drugs as a way to cope with the abuse she was now enduring on a daily basis. While it’s no excuse, she had no other outlet; she couldn’t talk to anyone because he wouldn’t allow her any unsupervised contact with her family. They all knew what was going on, but they couldn’t get her out. She didn’t want to leave, because my father threatened her family if she was to go. In 1987, in an attempt to “start over” and move my mother away from friends and family, he moved her to Big Pine Key. Here my mom thought, “Maybe things will be different; maybe he will change,” and again she was wrong. During our time in the Keys, we came home to visit once. My mother was bruised and battered when she walked through the front door of her parents’ home with her husband and child in tow. All smiles when she walked in as if nothing was wrong, and to keep up the facade of happiness in her marriage. Of course she had fallen down, which is what explained the bruises. Everything was wonderful at their new home she said; she’d never been happier. She lied. By this time, the family had learned the truth, but also knew if they said anything, it would

Domestic Violence Awareness Walk to be Oct. 11 By the Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force Special to the News

So trusting that she would know when enough was enough, they let her make her own decisions. She didn’t know. After some time in the Keys, my father decided he would move us back home to Washington County. Oct. 27, 1990, started out like any other day for her. Getting up, taking care of the child she devoted her life to, and making sure everything was perfect for the man she feared so much. When he decided he wanted to go out for drinks, I of course had to tag along. We made our way from our home to a hole-in-the-wall bar in Vernon. After getting drunk, they decided to go home. They drove home, with me in the backseat, arguing the whole way. My mother had a woman confront her at the bar we were in, and she was furious by the time we got home. When we got in the house, she decided she wanted to go back and talk to this other woman. My father wouldn’t allow it. This time was different — I could tell — so under the coffee table I went. A small, scared, 3-year-old little girl with no where to go but there. At this point, I saw my mother. She was bright, beautiful and strong! She wasn’t taking it anymore! He didn’t like that. “I’m going,” she screamed at him. “You’re not going anywhere,” he screamed back. There in the kitchen, she made her stand. She started throwing potatoes, onions, anything she could grab to get him away from her. Then she turned down their small hallway and made a run for it, and that’s when it happened. I watched as my beautiful mother, my everything as a little girl, fell lifeless to the floor. As I scrambled to get to her, I was caught by my father, who was frantically calling 911 to report that he had just “accidentally”

shot his wife. “Is mommy OK, what’s wrong with her?” No answers were given to me. As the days went on, my father was being charged with second-degree murder, but was out on bond and I was home with him. Now the drinking and drugs were worse, and the only one left to abuse was me. My father eventually pled to second-degree manslaughter and was sentenced to three years with the Department of Corrections and seven years probation. He served from Sept. 23, 1993, to February 14, 1995, in prison. He was allowed to participate in a work release program until his sentence was completely served on Sept. 23, 1996. On May 6, 1999, my father was released from probation three years early for being a “model” citizen. One year and 5 months … This is the sentence he served for the murder of my mother. One year and 5 months is what he lost of his life. I lost everything I had good in mine. I grew up without my mother to comfort me, help me, get me ready for my prom, help me shop for my wedding and love her grandchildren the way I know she would’ve. I was robbed! Domestic violence does not only affect the two people directly involved. It affects us all. From myself, to my grandparents who lost their daughter, two people who lost a loving sister, countless people who lost a friend, my husband who hurts for me and for himself having never had the opportunity to meet her, and my children who will never know the love that my mother had to share with the world. Domestic violence is everywhere, and nowhere at the same time. People are so ashamed to talk about it, and we have to stop that now. It takes a community.

BONIFAY — The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force is partnering with Doctors Memorial Hospital to have the first ever Domestic Violence Awareness Walk from 5-9 p.m. Oct. 11 at DMH in honor and memory of victims and survivors of domestic violence. “This walk will be a fundraiser event in an effort to raise funds to support victims of abuse in Holmes, Washington and surrounding areas,” said Missy Sword Lee, Family Intervention Program supervisor for Habilitative Services of Northwest Florida. “The mission of the DV task force is to open a shelter for victims to escape an abusive situation without having to leave their own community.” She said she has pledge forms available for the walk, and people should consider walking individually or getting a team together to help raise money. “This is not just an awareness walk,” Lee said. “This is going to be a community event for the entire family. While folks are walking to collect their pledge money, we will have vendors set up selling items ... We will also have entertainment going on from a stage. We will have several local folks sharing their talents like singing, martial arts, etc., and we plan to have a country music singer with us as well. We have sponsorship packages, so please consider sponsoring this event as there are great incentive packages depending on which level you give at.” Men will get their own opportunity to support this event in a “walk in her shoes.” “Men, get your high heels out and get ready to walk a short distance in support of an abuse victim that could be your sister, your mother, your

grandmother, your daughter,” Lee said. “I hear that there are some out there who are so excited about this event that they plan to wear skirts with their heels, which sounds like so much fun.” Last will be the luminary event, which recognizes victims and survivors of domestic violence. “If you know someone who has fallen victim to domestic violence or is a survivor of domestic violence, please consider naming them for a luminary to be lit in their name the night of the event,” Lee said. “Survivors of domestic violence will be sharing their stories while this vigil takes place.” She said one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. “Domestic violence does not discriminate against race, religion, financial stature or age. Domestic violence will never stop if we do not get involved,” Lee 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 will include local young artists, demonstrations by Trinity Martial Arts, drama skits by Carmel Youth Drama Team, Take 2, and free concerts by The Drummonds gospel group and Nashville country singer and Sun Records recording star Julie Roberts. T-shirts will be available for $15 for task force shirts and $20 for event shirts, and Awareness bracelets will be available for $10. Special events also include a pumpkin carving contest, face painting, free food, drinks, snow cones, candy, popcorn, inflatables for kids, vendors, free concerts, free mini massages and free hand scrubs. For more information or to be a vendor, call Lee at 596-3288 or visit their Facebook page at Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force.

Francis Hays wrapped up his 60-year career as a barber in Chipley on Friday, Sept. 27.

‘The news is out all over town’

The Hank Williams country music hit of years gone by began with “The news is out all over town....” could easily be concluded with the Prattler’s words — “that Francis Hays is shutting the barber shop down!” The following sign has adorned his barber shop window PERRY’S for a full month, PRATTLE confirming the news Perry Wells which had been rumored for some time. “After 60 years, Hays Barber Shop is closing its door. No more cuts, shaves or hot lather, for sure. This shops holds many memories I will never forget. From babies’ first haircuts, and saying ‘goodbye’ to dear friends. This place holds the memory of marrying the love of my life. It’s time I take off my shoes, kick back, and spend time with my wife. I, and my family, thank you for the many years of true service God Bless You, Francis Hayes.” (The hand written notation reads: “Retire’ Sept. 27, 2013”) Francis Hays has been cutting hair in Chipley, at the same location, adjacent to the Capital City Bank, since 1953. At the time of his birth in 1933, his father, Oscar Hays was already teamed up with an uncle, Lem Hays, and were operating a barbershop on Main Street in

Chipley. These two barbers became legends in the town. Haircuts were 25 cents, shaves 15 cents and the “shoeshine boy” was paid a nickel for a sporty shoeshine. Linda Hays Cook, Francis’s sister, presently serving as Clerk of Court for Washington County, wrote in the “Heritage of Washington Book” that her dad and uncle always described the barber shop as where “one could get a ‘side wall’ haircut, a close shave and all the gossip you needed to hear, all in this one little barber shop on Main Street in Chipley, Florida.” Francis reports that for some unknown reason, the father, Oscar, moved his hair cutting business to the present location sometime in the early 1950s, leaving his brother, Lem, alone. Soon after moving, Francis’ brother, Harvey Hays, joined his dad as a licensed barber in the business. Sadly, Oscar Hays, died suddenly and unexpected at the age of 53, leaving Harvey to continue in the shop alone. Francis was employed in construction when Harvey approached him as a possible partner. It sounded interesting so he immediately enrolled in barber training, received a barber license and joined his brother in the new venture. According to Francis, Harvey left the shop within two weeks of

his joining the operation. He was hired by the Florida Department of Transportation, where he worked until retirement. He did some Saturday part-time hair cutting for a few months but soon gave that up. Since that time, 1953, Francis Hays has cut hair as a one-man operation at the same shop for 60 years! In the history of the local barber profession, Norman Kirkland, Jr. well known as Junior Kirkland, joined the uncle, Lem Hays, in the original barber shop. Lem Hays passed away shortly and Junior moved just around the corner from the first location and completed his career. Rex Kirkland, brother to Junior, married Francis’s sister, Pat Hays. He became a barber and opened his shop in Cottondale where he cut hair for many years. Their son, Brad Kirkland, also chose barbering and operated a shop in Bonifay before leaving for health reasons. Ironically, a man by the name of Maxwell Hays came on the scene as a barber in Chipley in the early 1970s after retirement from military service, working part time for Junior Kirkland. The mother of the Hays children was Thelma Brock Hays, who died at a young age. The oldest brother, Marcus, is also deceased.


‘And another one bites the dust’ For about as long as I can remember, a big two-story block building has dominated the corner of north Waukesha and North Ave at the traffic light in Pepper Town. This week, Tim Steverson, Machine Shop manager of Holmes Tool and Engineering Company called and said Lex Bynum manager of the Welding Department said, “It’s coming down. You better HAPPY CORNER call Mrs. Tison.” He Hazel Wells Tison said that on Friday, the building owned by the engineering company is being demolished. They have been cited by the city as an eyesore and safety hazard and at a cost of more than $30, 000, the building will be razed. The last use of the building was as a hardware store owned by Weldon and Betty Miles. I remember buying a set of Blue Danube pottery dishes for my daughter-in-law, Judy Tison, when the Miles had the hardware there. She still has most of those dishes. When our children were small, Cox Supermarket in that building was our main grocery store. On Fridays when Jack was able to ride to Bethlehem School with Mr. Segers (T.E.), Betty and I would get our children cleaned up and go grocery shopping at Cox’s. The thing I remember most about Betty was that she would never leave her house until everything was neat.


This historic two-story building in downtown Bonifay has been demolished. All laundry was folded and put away; toys were picked up. Sometimes she’d even walk down the “old road” with Tommy, Kathy and Vicky to our house and she’d straighten up my house, too. I’ve tried to recall who worked for Mr. Cox. I think Mrs. Myrtle Butler worked there. In fact, I was under the impression that she and husband, James, owned the building. I think Mr. Newsome was the meat cutter behind a meat case where you ordered the cuts you wanted. No pre-cut packaged cuts. I asked Jennifer Cloud if she remembered the Cox store as the Manuel family had a store across

Highway 79, but the only memory she could recall was buying her Daddy, John, a fountain pen for a birthday present at the store. She also remembered playing with the Bethel’s daughter who lived in one of the upstairs apartment. Sarah Smith remembered her cousins, W.E and Eloise Hilson and daughter Karen living in the north side apartment living. Jennifer referred me to her sister Joan Dowling. Joan recalled that Mr. Warren Cox had a son, Joe, who was her age. They played together sometimes.

Youngest official in Holmes history elected

hamilton from page A4 Our system depends on a vigorous Congress. The administration argues that it can provide rigorous intelligencegathering oversight, but it has yet to prove it can do so — and in our system of checks and balances, it’s not enough to have one branch of government overseeing itself. Congress, the courts, and the presidentially appointed Privacy and Civil Liberties Board all have to step up to their responsibilities. Americans should demand action to strike a better balance between privacy and security. In the past, the congressional overseers of the intelligence community have been captivated, if not captured, by the people they’re supposed to be supervising. Same with the courts. And the administration has hardly been forthcoming. That means it’s up to the American people to insist that our leaders do their jobs. It’s no less true today than it was at our founding: the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.


547-9414 | @WCN_HCT WESTVILLE — Brittney Simmons made history when she was elected as the newest council member of the Westville Town Council recently, making her the youngest elected official in the history of Holmes County at the age of 20. Raised in Westville since the age of 2, Simmons is a graduate of Ponce de Leon High School and is currently enrolled at Northwest Florida State College majoring in Elementary Education. “The way I look at it is that it’s my generation that’s going to be coming into politics pretty soon,” said Simmons. “We’ve been fitted by our parents

Bonifay Kiwanis Club host rodeo breakfast By CECILIA SPEARS

BONIFAY — The Rodeo Breakfast was hosted by Bonifay Kiwanis Club and held at the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Thursday. “Many fail to realize that the rodeo is completely volunteer ran and these volunteers plan for a year for this event,” said Julia Bullington, Chamber Coordinator at Holmes County Chamber of Commerce. “And once they’ve raised all that money and paid off all event debts all the rest of the money goes to the children.” Calena Medley of the Kiwanis Club said that this year’s them was Rodeo Reboot 2013 and explained that for the first year there will be VIP tickets available for purchase. With VIP tickets the ticket holders get preferred parking behind the concession stands, a commemorative cushion with specialized seating at the bull gates, someone to run to and from the concession stands for food and beverages and a back arena pass allowing visitors to

longtime and faithful customer, George Bonner. Among the others who were always looking for the opportunity to pull a “gag” were loyal customers Mack Odom, Jim Peel and S. T. Holley. Francis Hays, the longtime professional barber in Chipley has now laid aside his fears and concerns that no barber will follow in his steps in the town. He has come to grips with all the pitfalls and frustrations of continuing his “trade” in the arena where he has made an untold number of friends and faithful customer. As he states in his note in this window, the time has come to lay down the clippers, as there will be no more cuts, shaves nor hot lather at Hays Barber Shop in Chipley. The well-known continuous conversation and story telling has now ceased and all is quiet at the corner of Highway 90 and Highway 77. Francis invoked a sincere “God Bless You” to all friends and customers in his “notice” posted in the barber shop window. The Prattler now extends his God Bless You to Francis and Juanita as you continue your lives in the town where you are loved and appreciated.

Joan loved going to visit this lady and see her gold fish in and in-ground pond. Across from the King’s corner was a block building which may have been a business at one time, but for a time, Bonifay Police Chief Amos Kent and wife Eunice lived there with their sons, James Earl, Henry Ray, Phillip, and Mike. Traffic in those days was nothing like it is today and Joan recalled how the neighborhood kids would all play together, never having to report to parents. They could run across Highway 79 to Cox Supermarket if they had a dime to buy a soft drink or piece of

candy. They came in when darkness drove them in. Those days are long gone and it is time to say goodbye to the old building. It is sad to see the McGee house being demolished this week too as it has redeeming qualities such as its family’s importance in the business community, its architectural style and its solid construction, but I have trouble grieving for the Pepper Town building. Its landmark position will certainly change the view as you are coming into or leaving Bonifay, but its absence may provide a better view, certainly a safer view.

happy from page A4 Joan had a skunk in a cage which she had caught out the Dogwood Lakes road. It knew her and would not spray her, but Joe got the full benefit of the skunk’s defensive system. He had to go back over to the store smelling like a skunk. Joan recalled the businesses in the Pepper Town area when she was growing up. Ed Durant’s was on the north corner and a little farther was the Beall building that started out as a hardware, but was used for several purposes. It was once a sort of antique shop and furniture refinishing place. Across the street from Ed’s was the Brown’s fish bait and washeteria. The Brooks

family and the Helms family lived north of these. Some other neighbors were the Breedens, who lived in the house where the Dentist office now sits. The Manuels lived next door for a time. They also lived in part of the store for a time and then built the big home where the family lived until the death of Mr. and Mrs. Manuel. Joan’s grandparents, the Smith’s, lived in a house located where the King buildings are now. Mrs. Juanita Hamner lived between the 2 houses. She taught at Bethlehem School. Up the street, across from where the Piggly Wiggly now is was Mrs. Curry’s home.

prattle from page A4 Francis Hays married Juanita Henderson on July 31, 1981, in a quiet ceremony performed by your writer. The marriage was conducted in the barber shop. Francis had cut hair all day long. He simply pulled down the Venetian Blinds, dusted his hair-cutting cloth, draped it over the barber chair and the wedding proceeded in the presence of family members. Their girls, Michelle “Mike” Hays Lee, married Bill Lee, and Cindy Hays Mitchell, married Lee Mitchell. Both live in Bonifay. Their son, George “Nubby” Hays lives in Tallahassee. The jovial, fun loving and friendly Francis Hays, is obviously well loved and respected in the community. He learned to be on guard for those well meaning customers who were always ready for a practical joke. He told of Juanita having sustained injuries in an automobile accident shortly after the marriage, requiring hospitalization in Dothan. While she was there, he suffered a heart attack and joined her at the same hospital for his treatment. He reports most of the “ribbing” from this episode came from his

administration and its intelligence leadership have been responsible stewards of the powers they’ve been given — and I don’t — that is no guarantee that the people who follow them, or the people who come after that, will be equally trustworthy. This means that Congress has some challenging work ahead. It needs to restore the proper balance between effective intelligencegathering and intrusion into Americans’ privacy. It needs to demand more thoroughgoing accountability from the intelligence community. It needs to exercise greater oversight and insist on more transparency, more information, and more constraint on surveillance programs — defining what is truly relevant to an investigation, creating more stringent definitions of which communications are fair game, and finding ways to assure Americans that protecting their privacy and civil liberties need not mean the wholesale vacuuming-up of every domestic phone and email record in existence. There is no place for the timidity Congress has shown so far on these issues.

Vernon drops Bozeman 41-6 By BRAD MILNER

747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner VERNON — Vernon waited a while, but the Yellow Jackets no longer are deprived a victory. Six players scored and homestanding Vernon cruised to a 41-6 win over Bozeman Friday night in a nondistrict Class 1A game. The Yellow Jackets (1-3) and Coach Bobby Johns spent four weeks looking for their first victory after regrouping on defense in the early season. Defense again was key with the Bucks fresh off their best offensive performance. Bozeman fell to 1-4 a week after capturing its first win last week against Holmes County. The teams matched the touchdown production of the first half less than four minutes into the third quarter. That belied a defensive struggle before halftime and briefly put Bozeman back in contention. His team trailing 14-0, Bozeman’s Bubba Thompson hit David Elmore for a 74-yard scoring reception. A failed conversion pass left Bozeman behind 14-6. Vernon answered with a 76-yard drive capped by a 9-yard Brandon Malloy run. Austin Brown had a 25-yard run on the drive and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty also helped set up Malloy’s run. Brown scored on a 1-yard run on Vernon’s next drive to settle the outcome. Bozeman was held to 52 total yards in the first half. Vernon gained 176, with 68 coming on the final series of the second quarter.

Vernon caught Bozeman off guard with six passes on the march, including strikes of 20, 19, 18 and 13, the latter between Tristan Porter to Cody Harmon that reached the 2 with 5 seconds left. Alex O’Neill capped the textbook drive with a short plunge to give Vernon a 14-0 lead. Porter’s 16-yard scamper put Vernon ahead on its first series. The Yellow Jackets went 56 yards on 11 plays after stopping Bozeman on fourth down. Bozeman squandered an early opportunity following a muff on the opening kickoff at the Vernon 38. Vernon stiffened and forced a fourth-down turnover four plays later. Bozeman went 15 plays on its next series that stalled on fourth down at the 20. The Bucks punted on their last two first-half possessions. Thompson was 6 of 16 for 112 yards, all coming in the second half. Elmore finished with 83 yards on three receptions. Porter passed for 117 yards and rushed for 48. Brown led all rushers with 76 yards.

Tigers stop Sharks 28-16 By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — In the battle of fearsome mascots, the Tigers came out on top of the Sharks 28-16 at Philip Rountree Stadium in Chipley. It wasn’t the Tigers’ claws or fangs, but its defensive line, that was the difference when Chipley (2-1) faced Port St. Joe — beginning with a first-drive turnover inside the Tigers’ 10-yard mark that brought the Sharks’ first drive to a screeching halt. Port St. Joe’s Dewayne Griggs, Jasmin Thomas and Aaron Paul combined to roll up 45 yards, capitalizing on a 30-yard opening kick-off return by Griggs for a total 75 yards offense, only to come to a standstill after a fumbled carry lands at the Tigers’ feet. A holding penalty brought back a 60-yard Kobe McCrary run on Chipley’s first drive, and neither team was able to get much past the halfway mark for the rest of the first quarter. The second quarter started with Port St. Joe’s Thomas scrambling with a fake punt on fourth and five down to inside the Chipley 12, where the Tigers’ defense was able to dig in and finally stop the Sharks at the 5-yard. Port St. Joe’s Drew Lacour was good for a 15yard field goal, though, and the Sharks were on the board 3-0. On Chipley’s next possession, however, Darren Stewart was good for a 67yard sprint on second and long, putting the Tigers on the Sharks’ 5-yard line. McCrary went up the middle for the touchdown, giving Chipley a 6-3 lead with 8:59 left to play in the half. Port St. Joe rolled up a total of two yards on their next three possessions and punted the ball back to Chipley 1:40 after Chipley’s first touchdown. The Tigers took possession at their own 47

McCrary moved the ball from the 20 to just inside the 12-yard line, then Zack Campbell took it over the top to score. McCrary added the PAT from a fake field goal set-up to put the Tigers in the lead 14-3 with 4:23 left in the half. The Sharks came back undeterred and drove 66 yards in 8 plays, and Griggs found the end zone on a sweep from four yards out. Lacour’s point after try was blocked, but the Sharks were closing the gap with a 14-9 score going into the half. The Tigers nearly scored again, with quarterback Jordan Finch connecting with Carlon Smith for 10 yards, then McCrary scrambling 42 yards to put Chipley on the Port St. Joe 2-yard line with just seconds to play.

The Sharks defense was able to stop McCrary on his next try, and the half was over. Port St. Joe came out on their first possession of the 2nd half with a 9-play, 50-yard effort that was capped with Paul scoring up the middle from five yards out. Lacour’s kick was good and the Sharks had the lead for the second time that evening at 16-14. Twenty-five seconds later, Chipley’s Stewart ran 70-yards to put the Tigers back on top, and that is where they remained. McCrary added the PAT to change the board to 22-16. Chipley’s final touchdown came with 4:18 to play. McCrary was met at the 50-yard line by a host of Sharks, but they were unable to handle him and he broke free and ran into the end zone. Chipley travels to South Walton on Friday.

Rogers, Mosley rush past Arnold By JASON SHOOT

747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot PANAMA CITY BEACH — Ryan Rogers leads all area tailbacks backs in rushing yards for a reason. Rogers dodged and darted his way through Arnold’s defense for 138 yards and Mosley rolled to its first district win of the season with a 49-14 victory Friday at the Mike Gavlak Sports Complex. The Dolphins improved to 2-3 overall and evened their District 1-5A record at 1-1. Arnold lost its second straight game at home to fall to 3-2, 0-2. Mosley’s cavalcade of playmakers made an impact all over the field. Rogers, who entered the game with an area-best 575 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, added another 116 rushing yards and a touchdown by halftime against the Marlins. Receiver Nat Dixon added 98 receiving yards, and fullback Christian Childree had 90 rushing yards to balance Mosley’s offense. “This was a very important win for us because we were coming off of a blowout on the opposite end,” said Rogers, alluding to last week’s 59-20 loss to West Florida. “This gives us hope we can win in the playoffs.” Added Dixon: “We have plenty of weapons, and when we’re firing on all cylinders we’re tough to beat. … This is a great confidence booster.” The Dolphins’ advantage offensively was heightened by four Arnold fumbles on plays involving special teams, miscues that resulted in turnovers or poor field position. Marlin mistakes played a role in Mosley building an insurmountable 28-7 lead. Mosley’s punt return unit produced the Dolphins’ first touchdown with

8:42 remaining in the first quarter. Arnold punter Connor MacKenzie had a snap sail over his head into the Marlins’ end zone, and MacKenzie tried to kick the ball after he scooped it up. Mosley pursuers didn’t allow MacKenzie to punt the ball cleanly, however, and it rolled off the punter’s foot out of the end zone. Zach Warnick picked the ball up and stepped across the goal line for a 7-0 lead. Rogers stretched the Dolphins’ lead to 13-0 about 5½ minutes later when he carried the ball off left tackle 11 yards for a touchdown, high-stepping into the end zone. Mosley’s lead was increased to 20-0 early in the second quarter when quarterback Dillon Brown plowed across the goal line on a 1-yard quarterback sneak. The Dolphins seized a 28-0 lead after Childree broke five tackles en route to the end zone on a 25yard run with 3:47 left in the half. Arnold finally struck for a touchdown 26 seconds before halftime when receiver Jovanni Parea beat a pair of Mosley defenders deep, reeled in Cody Saunders’ pass and raced 67 yards untouched to trim the Marlins’ deficit to 28-7 after two quarters. The play marked Saunders’ only pass of the first half. Rogers compiled 116

yards on 13 carries in the first half, and Childree added 55 yards on seven carries as Mosley boasted a 180-0 advantage in rushing through two quarters. “It’s a huge accomplishment,” Rogers said of leading the area. “I’ve got to thank the offensive line. They’ve been great. They’ve put in the work in the weight room.” Adam McAfee completed 10 of 16 passes for 87 yards before halftime for Arnold. Parea had five receptions for 85 yards in the first half alone. Dixon produced two touchdowns in the second half for Mosley as the Dolphins built an eventual 497 lead. He had a beautiful overthe-shoulder catch on a 9yard touchdown pass from Brown, and Dixon turned a short pass into a 20-yard touchdown with just under 6 minutes left in the third quarter. Trevin Taylor broke free for a 20-yard touchdown run on the first play of the fourth quarter for a 49-7 Mosley lead. Arnold responded with Saunders’ 27-yard touchdown pass to Torri Cotton to provide the final margin. Brown completed 8 of 17 passes for 157 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for Mosley. Saunders passed for 107 yards and ran for 41 more to lead Arnold offensively.

BONIFAY — The football action for the Blue Devil PeeWee’s was in Alford this past weekend with the 8-10 Team Gold starting the day off at 9 a.m. Team Gold was faced off against the Panama City/ Glenwood team we saw last week in Bonifay. They weren’t able to pull a win and instead were defeated by Glenwood 30-0. The 5-7 Devils was paired against Alford and lost 30-18. The 8-10 Team Blue also faced off against Alford and got the win. Rushing touchdowns were scored by brothers Kalen and Rylan Evans as well as EJ Reddice and Zane Gilmore. Extra points were run in by Rylan, CJ Callahan, and

The 8- to 10-year-old cheerleaders are coached by Kim Gay and Jessica Bean. Lane Nallick. The defense also performed well by not letting Alford get on the scoreboard. The final score for the 8-10’s was 32-0. The 11-13 Blue Devils also played the Eagles and came up with the same outcome. Touchdowns for Bonifay were scored by Chance Bailey and Xavier Davis. Bailey also had 115 yards rushing for the day. The Blue Devil defensive line composed

of Dey Dey Foreman, AJ Swartz, Jacob Haddock and Tyler Ward shut the Alford team down not letting them score a point. The 11-13 final score was 12-0. Although the Blue Devil wins are mainly attributed to hard work and good coaching it is also worth noting that Bonifay has had a great cheerleader turnout this year and their support every Saturday is appreciated.

Garden adventures had at Kate Smith Elementary Special to the News CHIPLEY — Thursday, Sept. 26, was a picture perfect day for Kate Smith Elementary School firstand third-graders. It was “School Picture” day, a beautiful Fall day, and Chipley Garden Club was waiting under the big oak with hundreds of live potted plants to give away! “The garden club loves doing this annual project. We are able to share our love of gardening and a bit of horticulture with the children,” Linda Pigott, Club 2nd vice president and retired teacher, remarked. “This year we offered over 20 varieties from vines to succulents. The students take choosing plants PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS seriously so we like to have a nice selection for them. Garden Club vice president Linda Pigott discusses gardening with students at Kate Smith Elementary School. It’s amazing to see how well they take care of their plants and how the plants have grown by January’s 4-H Youth Fair.” Mrs. Pigott pointed out to each class the “mother” plants and briefly explained plant propagation techniques such as rooting cuttings and planting seeds. The children then moved on to Club members/retired teachers Charlotte Sapp and Gail Exum who talked Elementary school students carry their plants back to their Louise and Glen Michaels enjoy explaining about plant care and the importance of the correct classrooms. the joy of gardening to children.

amounts of water, light and food. Handouts, instruction sheets and 4-H Youth Fair Forms were also provided to the teachers. Other club members were on hand to help students add potting soil, answer questions, label plants with scientific and common names, explain plant care, and tidy up the pots. The children eagerly began making their choices and, in just a little over an hour, over 290 smiling children returned to classes with a new plant of their very own. Longtime club members Louise and Glen Michaels agreed, “We’ve been participating in this annual event for over ten years and enjoy it as much as the children do! It a wonderful opportunity to introduce children to basic horticulture and introduce them to gardening.” Chipley Garden Club meets the first Wednesday of each month.

Board finalizes grant for courthouse generator BONIFAY — After more than a year after applying for a grant, the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners agreed to pay the matching funds so the courthouse can have a new generator. The application for a $29,000 grant to purchase a generator for the Holmes County Courthouse was accepted and board agreed to pay the matching funds of $5,368.75 during their Sept. 24 meeting. During the board’s April 24, 2012, meeting Commissioner Kenneth Williams informed the board that

they had applied for a grant towards a generator for the courthouse. “It’s a big enough generator to provide for the entire courthouse no problem,” said Williams. “The match is between $2,000 and $4,000 for a $29,000 generator with the possibility for an in-kind match for labor. We needed to apply for the grant that day, so it seemed like a no-brainer.” The board agreed with Williams. “We’ll still have to do some work to do to accept the grant,” said Chairman Monty Merchant. “Speaking of generators, we have multiple generators throughout the county and we’ve even had one go down not too

long ago. We should appoint someone to check on those generators on a regular basis and report any abnormalities if there should be any found.” The board agreed to allow Shop Director Roger Williams perform this task. The board also approved of Jerry Dixon as the newest member of the Holmes County Development Commission Board and agreed for all board members to bring names of potential candidate for the two open members-at-large positions still open. County Attorney Jeff Goodman explained to the board that the Holmes County Clerk of Court would be assuming financial responsibility for the Probation Services, which would take the board out of the process. “There are a lot of requirements but most of them don’t apply because this is a public service and the requirements are applied towards private,” said Goodman. “Clerk of Court Kyle Hudson doesn’t need the money from the board to get it started. So the Clerk of Court has it handled and the board needs to take no action.” County Engineer Whitney Nelson from Melvin Engineering explained that there was “a deep need” to repair McCarnley Road and explained that since there is someone who is already mobilized for road work that the cost of patching would cost $4,800, which would exclude mobilization fees.

The board approved of patching McCarnley Road for $4,800 and gave a time frame of within 30 days for the work to get started. “We don’t know when we’ll be able to get a deal like this again,” said Williams. “Mobilization fees alone could kill you in costs.” Forest Area Supervisor Donnie Sellers for Florida Forestry Services gave his yearly report to the board. “We’ve had fewer fires due to rain and a Fire Readiness at a level 1, which means very unlikely for fires,” said Sellers. “We’re still battling cogongrass. Round-Up really works but it needs at least two applications.” Commissioner Bobby Sasnett explained the reason why his new grader had so little hours, which was brought into question by Williams at the special session held on Sept. 16. Williams came to the special called meeting with new information based on recent findings. “All graders are equipped with a GPS that helps us know exactly where it’s at, how long it runs and how long it’s idle at any given point 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Williams. “First I’d like to point out that the hours indicated on the GPS matches up with the hours logged by our operators, which is really good, however I’d like to point out the activity of District 1’s working grader.” Williams presented the website of logged time through the GPS to show the commissioners.

“It operated for nine hours on Aug. 6, seven hours on three days and six hours or less the rest of the month,” said Williams. “What gets me is that on the day that I voted with you that you were in a state of emergency the one grader that worked was only operated for two hours that day. I’m just saying that if you are indeed in an emergency situation that you’d think that you’d be running the one grader that worked.” Sasnett said that it rained for 28 consecutive days and that his grader operator had heart issues and had three doctor’s appointments. “We also 12 springs to fix, two of which had to be fixed twice and materials are a two and a half hour trip for each load,” said Sasnett. “All the time took to get materials the grader has to wait, just sitting there. All the logged hours are accounted for.” He said that from the time he started in office he let the other commissioners know that both of his districts graders were “shot.” Merchant agreed that there was no doubt that Sasnett was in need of a grader. “We need to work together as a board,” said Sasnett. “Other districts have more man-power than me. I think I’m capable of running my own district.” Merchant agreed to help in any way possible and Williams agreed to lend him a grader and grader operator for the weekends until the special called meeting where Sasnett has assured the board that he has an idea

for fixing his dilemma. The board approved of extending their annual agreement with the Medical Examiner. The board also approved of the Holmes County Correctional Institution of using the Holmes County Fair Grounds for their regular training sessions on Nov. 14. The board approved of using the Florida League of Cities for their Actuary Services at $6,000, which is good for three years according to Goodman. The board also approved of union negotiations contracts to offer the choice of two different health insurance options, to pay $586.66 toward each employee’s health insurance and for a cost of living pay increase for non-union employees of $250 for full time employees and $125 for part time employees with the requirement that they’ve been employed for at least six months and to exclude all state funded employees. Goodman gave an update on the progress of potentially hiring a County Coordinator/Public Works Director. “The board has been given copies of all the applications,” said Goodman. “We are now in the process of developing a committee to review these applicants. We should have a list of potential committee members by the special session.” The special session is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Sept. 30. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of County Commissioners is set for 9 a.m. on Oct. 8.

Dog parks offer socialization and exercise your dog is a viable candidate for the dog park, choose a park best suited for both you and Rover. “An area with access to running water to fill up your dogs’ bowl is ideal, and a fence is a must,” Barr said. It is smart to consider the location of the park, as it should be positioned away from any major roads and easily accessible to you, and to be aware of the rules and regulations specific to that park. Just as you would do with your child, never let Rover out of your sight and always be cautious of your surroundings. A dog park can be a great experience for the right dog, and it is up to you to decide if the benefits outweigh the risks.

close eye on your dog. If your dog does engage in a fight, remember that your safety is paramount. “Your dog is only concentrating on fighting and will bite whatever comes close to their mouth,” Barr said. “Do not place your hands near their mouth; the use of verbal commands by both owners should be done first.” If that does not work, attempts to pull the two fighting dogs apart should only be done very, very carefully. In addition to fights, another risk to consider is the exposure to diseases carried and transmitted by other dogs. “While this is an uncommon occurrence, the transmission of respiratory diseases (like kennel cough) and GI viral diseases (like parvo) can occur at dog parks,” Barr said. If these risks concern you, alternatives, such as doggy day care facilities that have vaccination records of all the dogs, or supervised doggy play dates with a familiar dog, are options to consider. If you do decide that

Faith EVENTS Mt. Olive AOG Homecoming

I awoke last Tuesday with a strange feeling I had missed something. Not only that, but I was shivering like a polar bear without his pajamas. I knew something was wrong, but to put my finger on it DR. JAMES was just too L. SNYDER early in the Out to Pastor morning for me. I like starting my days slowly. At my age, just getting up is quite an accomplishment. I felt my forehead to see if I had a fever. I found my forehead easily enough, just above my eyes, but I can never tell if I am hot, cold or lukewarm. The condition progressed to such a degree I had to swallow my pride and inquiry of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She can look at me and tell me if I am sick or not. Usually, I’m sick. So I approached her and said, “Am I sick or what?” Quick as a wink she said, “Off the top of my head I would say you are ‘or what.’” And this was just the beginning of my day. Then my wife looked at me and said, “Why do you ask?” So I explained to her about the feeling I had that something was missing and on top of that, I could not stop shivering. She felt my forehead to see if I had a fever, and I did not. When she turned her back on me, I was tempted to stick out my tongue and say “AHH.” “Well,” she said, “you’re not sick and I don’t understand how you could be cold.” I looked aimlessly out the

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 KJV window and began to shiver more. “It looks like it’s cold out there,” I complained. My wife looked at me with one of those looks that every husband knows and fears, and said, “It should be cold outside, its winter, for Pete’s sake.” “Winter? What happened to summer?” “Oh you silly boy,” my wife chuckled, “summer’s over and winter’s brewing.” I just stared out the window at the bleakness of the morning, wondering where in the world summer went. At the moment, it did not seem possible to me that summer was over. Is not that the way things go? Just as soon as you get used to something, it is over. I suppose it is because a person becomes so busy doing the mundane daily things he fails to consider the whole picture. If you do not enjoy what you are doing right now, one day you will look back and wonder where in the world it disappeared. At my age, it seems that looking back has become quite a career. I remember when I was young the old folks used to say, “I remember the good old days.” I’ve often wondered what they were talking about. Now I know. When I was young, my whole life was looking forward, but now that I am old, I spend part of my time looking at the rearview mirror. That is the wonderful

advantage of getting older. When you are young, you do not have anything to look back to. The older you get the more you have to look back on. I have a few things I reflect on. One are the memories I have made throughout the years. Often when my wife and I are sitting together one of us will say, “Do you remember when...?” Then one of us will recite a wonderful memory from the past and have a good laugh together. Maybe this is why older people laugh so much. I know it is why I laugh a lot. One of the wonderful things about a person’s memory is that it is personal. I will not say that I enhance my memories, of course I do, but I will not confess to it. If it is my memory I should be able to recite it any which way I please. I particularly enjoy those memories that I share with no one else. Because then, I have the freedom to remember it any which way I please. I once listened to a very old woman share memories of her childhood. At the time, she was in her early 90s. As I drove away from listening to her I thought to myself, I wonder how much of those memories were really true. Then again, they were her memories not mine. Who am I to judge? Also in looking back, there are those things we refer to as regrets. I suppose everybody

tries to live in such a way to keep regrets to a minimum. I have a long list of things I regret doing or saying or not doing or not saying. The one category of regrets I have are those things that I have done that my wife knows about. Talk about memory? This brings up the difference between a husband and a wife. A husband cannot remember anything, and his wife cannot forget anything. But between the two, they lick the platter clean. The apostle Paul practiced the fine art of forgetting. He wrote, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV). My rearview mirror is full, and the temptation is to focus solely on them missing the scenery in front of me. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

these actions or a specific project by writing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Interim Operations Facility, 2555 Shumard Oak Blvd., Tallahassee, FL 32399-2010. Comments should be sent in writing to Terry L. Quarles, Federal Coordinating Officer, at the above address within 15 days of the date of this notice. October 2, 9, 2013


10-3425 PUBLIC NOTICE The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice to the public of its intent to reimburse eligible applicants for eligible costs to repair or replace facilities damaged by the Severe Storms and Flooding occurring July 2nd through July 7th, 2013. This notice applies to the Public Assistance (PA), and Hazard Mitigation Grant (HMGP) programs implemented under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 5121-5207. Under a major disaster d e c l a r a t i o n FEMA-4138-DR signed by the President on August 2, 2013 and amended on August 22, 2013, the following counties have been designated as adversely affected by the disaster and eligible for PA: Bay, Holmes, Walton, and Washington. Additional counties may be designated at a later date without further public notice. The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) is available statewide. This public notice concerns activities that may affect historic properties, activities that are located in or affect wetland areas or the 100-year floodplain, and critical actions within the 500-year floodplain. Such activities may adversely affect the historic property and floodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to flood damage. Presidential Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 require that all federal actions in or affecting the floodplain or wetlands be reviewed for opportunities to relocate and evaluated for social, economic, historical, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Where there is no opportunity to relocate, FEMA is required to undertake a detailed review to determine what measures may be taken to minimize future damages. The public is invited to participate in the process of identifying alternatives and analyzing their impacts. FEMA has determined that for certain types of facilities there are normally no alternatives to restoration in the floodplain or wetland. These are facilities that meet all of the following criteria: 1) FEMA’s estimate of the cost of repairs is less than 50% of the cost to replace the entire facility and is less than $100,000; 2) the facility is not located in a floodway; 3) the facility has not sustained major structural damage in a previous Presidentially declared flooding disaster or emergency; and 4) the facility is not critical (e.g., the facility is not a hospital, generating plant, emergency operations center, or a facility that contains dangerous materials). FEMA intends to provide assistance for the restoration of these facilities to their pre-disaster condition, except that certain measures to mitigate the effect of future flooding or other hazards may be included in the work. For example, a bridge or culvert restoration may include a larger waterway opening to decrease the risk of future washouts. For routine activities, this will be the only public notice provided. Other activities and those involving facilities that do not meet the four criteria above are required to undergo more detailed review, including a study of alternate locations. Subsequent public notices regarding such projects will be published if necessary, as more specific information becomes available. In many cases, an ap-

plicant may have started facility restoration before federal involvement. Even if the facility must undergo detailed review and analysis of alternate locations, FEMA will fund eligible restoration at the original location if the facility is functionally dependent on its floodplain location (e.g., bridges and flood control facilities), or the project facilitates an open space use, or the facility is an integral part of a larger network that is impractical or uneconomical to relocate, such as a road. In such cases, FEMA must also examine the possible effects of not restoring the facility, minimizing floodplain or wetland impacts, and determining both that an overriding public need for the facility clearly outweighs the Executive Order requirements to avoid the floodplain or wetland, and that the site is the only practicable alternative. State of Florida and local officials will confirm to FEMA that proposed actions comply with all applicable state and local floodplain management and wetland protection requirements. FEMA also intends to provide HMGP funding to the state of Florida to mitigate future disaster damages. These projects may include construction of new facilities, modification of existing, undamaged facilities, relocation of facilities out of floodplains, demolition of structures, or other types of projects to mitigate future disaster damages. In the course of developing project proposals, subsequent public notices will be published if necessary as more specific information becomes available. The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effect of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register and FEMA’s undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMA’s undertaking, this will be the only public notice. As noted, this may be the only public notice regarding the above-described actions under the PA and HMGP programs. Interested persons may obtain information about
