[GERALD HERBERT/AP] Robert Edmonson rests after pulling a dolly through sand as he helps retrieve belongings from his brother-in-laws destroyed home in Mexico Beach on Thursday. By Jay ReevesThe Associated PressMEXICO BEACH „ Missing relatives and worries that looters are just outside the door. Dirty clothes. Hours-long lines for gasoline, insurance adjusters, food and water. No power, no air conditioning, no schools, no information and little real improvement in sight. Daily life is a series of fears and frustrations, both large and small, for thousands of people living on the edge, more than a week after Hur-ricane Michael flattened thousands of square miles in the hurricane zone of the Panhandle.Erin Maxwell waited in line for fuel for more than an hour Thursday at a gasoline station that never opened.Im tired and want to go to sleep. I dont want to wait in another line,Ž said Maxwell, eyes closed and her head tilted back on the seat.Meanwhile, husband Mickey Calhoun fretted over the fate of his mother, Anita Newsome, 74. The retired sheriffs deputy was last seen when officers took her to a hospital the day before Michael made landfall, her son said.We cant find her or get word anywhere,Ž said an Post Michael: Fear, frustrationBy Eileen KelleyGateHouse MediaPARKER „ At the sound of the diesel engine of an ATV rounding the corner, A.D. Thomas lifts his arm as a way to get the mayors attention. His well-aged hips have left him with a slow and somewhat unsteady gait, that keeps him from walking to the road.Who should I call for help?Ž the 87-year-old disabled veteran asked as he began a series of questions and requests for the mayor of Parker, who is surveying the Hurricane Michael damage from an ATV. Thomas is worried about gas from a fire pit. Hed also like some help packing up some of the trin-kets that he and his wife of 65 years, Anne, collected.For the past four years Anne Thomas has lived at a memory care/assisted-living facility, so it has just been A.D. Thomas and a house full of furniture and trinkets. But the furniture is probably ruined.Anne Thomas dementia already robbed the couple of so much and A.D. Thomas doesnt want a hurricane to rob them of what is left. But it doesnt look good.Where A.D. Thomas goes and if it is with the couples memorabilia remains to be seen. The 2,542-square-foot ranch home will have to be demolished, Thomas said.An estimated one-third of the 2,500 or so houses and structures in this tiny 2-square-mile city could meet the same fate, said Rich Musgrave, mayor for more than five years.Mayor: Can Parker survive?Parker Mayor Rich Musg rave updates the citys priority posters in Parker City Hall on Thursday.

** A2 Saturday, October 20, 2018 | The News HeraldMusgrave said it could take maybe six months to get Federal Emergency Management trailers, if they can get them at all.Its going to be a challenge for them,Ž said Michael Jachles of Parkers residents, a spokesman on loan to the city from South Florida. People are going to be kind of on their own,Ž the mayor agreed.Musgraves fieldstone home came away with only a few cosmetic issues. He evacuated ahead of the storm and came back to a sight in town that he never could have imagined: The city appears to have been carpet bombed.Old oaks crashed onto homes, carports became unattached debris that the storm's winds wrapped snugly around homes. Windows blew out. Roofs peeled away from the homes they once kept dry. A travel trailer „ lifted from the ground by Michaels fierce winds „ is now perched in a tree across the bayou from Thomas home.Musgrave felt helpless. He couldnt sleep. Faith and family,Ž he kept tell-ing himself.Musgrave might be overwhelmed with the enormity of the chal-lenges ahead for the city, but he also feels a little guilty for his good fortune with his own home while many of his constituents lost everything.I almost feel like we shouldnt be in such good shape,Ž he said.Every structure in Parker was affected in one manner or another by Hurricane Michael and somehow not one person from Parker died.That in itself, said Mus-grave, is a blessing. But still, hes concerned for the residents with medi-cal issues who might not be able to get medications and help.Thomas is counting his blessings. He rode the 155-mph storm out in a recliner in the center of his house.The storm ripped large portions of the roof off his home. Dry wall came crashing down in a jumble of uneven pieces. Rain poured in. More than a week after the storm, water still pushes out from Thomas feet as he walks across the carpeted rooms.Mold grows on the walls.By midday when the sun is overhead just right, Thomas home has an unfamiliar look to it inside: a soft neon blue, thanks to the sun bearing down on tarps draped overhead.Hes hoping he can figure out a way to stay in the town that will for all accounts have to be rebuilt.This is Musgraves third term as mayor. Not once has he been chal-lenged in the election.From here on out and into the foreseeable future, he will be filled with challenges.One of the things I worry about is how are we going to survive as a viable entity?Ž Musgrave said. There are a lot of unknowns right now.ŽHe anticipates the bill to remove the debris will easily top $1 million.There is just so much need and not enough (resources) to fulfill it,Ž Musgrave said.The city has all of 32 employees, that includes nine police officers and four paid firefighters „ theres a volunteer fire force more than four times the paid size „ and 13 employees who work in public works.The employees have their own storm-related problems to confront. Thankfully reinforcements „ police, public works employees and linemen „ have come to help from across the state to help Parker and the surrounding communities hit hardest by Hurricane Michael.Parkers capital and operations budget is $5 million.Parker and Panama City Beach dont charge ad valorem taxes. Though the idea has been floated in the past only to be beat down by residents who like it that way.A beach town like Panama City Beach, Mus-grave said, can make up for no ad valorem taxes because of the money the hotel taxes bring the city.Parker cant boast that. Its hotel is far from high-end and is consid-ered more of a respite for transients.The city is not flush with cash. About 98 per-cent of the elementary students qualify for free lunches.An enthusiasm and aggressiveness in obtain-ing grants has allowed the city to make capital improvements.Musgrave lists the vari-ous improvements under his watch and said he is proud that the city has been able to sustain itself.Now he questions if it can without a dedicated revenue stream from property taxes should people stay and rebuild their houses.As it stands now, about half the citys funding comes from utilities „ all knocked out by Hurricane Michael.You do what you can and make happen,Ž Mus-grave said.Alice Zimmerman has figured that out. Shes been wading out into Parkers Martin Lake and filling large water bottles with the brown water.This isnt for bathingŽ she said. Its so she can flush a toilet, though Zimmerman said she did see people bathing in the water earlier.Musgrave finishes talk-ing with Thomas about the elderly mans needs, walks down the driveway and climbs back in the ATV.I wish I could give him anything he asks for. Unfortunately, I dont have a magic wand.Ž PARKERFrom Page A1Rivera also was a faculty member in the Public Safety program at Gulf Coast State College. Later Thurs-day, Gulf County Fire Coordinator Brad Price, 49, was killed when a tree fell on the tractor he was driving while clearing debris for family members. He died at the scene, according to the Gulf County Sheriff's Office.A procession of emergency vehicles accompanied his flag-draped body to the Bay County Medical Examiner's Office Thursday evening. Gulf County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Corey Dobridnia said the medical examiner would determine whether Prices death would be classified as the second death related to Hurricane Michael recorded in the county.With Price's death, 25 of the 35 fatalities have been confirmed in Florida. Many of the deaths in the heavily timbered Panhandle were from tree falls, while other bodies have been pulled from homes decimated by hurricane-force winds and storm surge. The Associated Press contributed to this report. DEBRISFrom Page A1exasperated Calhoun, 54, wearing stained khaki pants and a dingy towel draped around his neck.A few miles away, 70-year-old Ed Kirkpat-rick and his 72-year-old wife, Sandra Sheffield, huddle together in a splintered mobile home surrounded by fallen pine trees. A noisy generator powers the old box fan blowing warm air across their den. Theyre both afraid to leave because of widespread reports of looting.The man, a diabetic who has a big scar down the middle of his chest from heart surgery, needs medical attention and ice to refrigerate his insulin, said Sheffield, who has a pacemaker. But getting out in traffic takes hours and precious fuel, she said, and looters could show up at any time.I dont want to go anywhere because I know Im safe here,Ž said Shef-field, burying her head in a twisted towel to cry.Michael slammed into the Panhandle with 155 mph winds on Oct. 10 and retained hurricane-force winds deep into southern Georgia, also affecting the Carolinas and Vir-ginia. Florida authorities on Thursday said the storm killed at least 20 people in the state, bring-ing the overall death toll to at least 30.With power still out in much of the Panhandle and thousands of buildings destroyed or damaged by Michael, almost nothing is normal. Even simple tasks are dif-ficult or impossible.Driving times are dou-bled or tripled because roads are clogged with police and fire vehicles, utility trucks, returning residents and people seeking help. Lines are long outside a discount store where more than two dozen insurance, financial services and cellphone companies have set up in a tempo-rary village of open-sided tents erected on asphalt.Warm temperatures in the 80s are adding to the misery because so few people can cool down with air conditioning. Bottled water is plentiful at roadside aid stations; ice is another matter.Spotty cellphone service leaves those most vulnerable with little information to help them get by. Residents in Panama City eagerly ask for information about what happened about 20 miles away in devas-tated Mexico Beach, and for tips on finding pharmacies, coin-operated laundries and stores that might sell batteries to power flashlights with fading beams.Kelli Ladik is living with four daughters and her husband in a camper parked outside their bay-side home, which has severe water damage from rain that poured in when the roof failed. Ladik is so, so tired of the grime.We need running water more than anything. To be able to shower after a full day of cleaning would be great,Ž said Ladik.Her children, three of whom are school age, are all out of class and its unclear when classes might resume. Some school buildings are heavily damaged and leaders still are trying to account for all the teach-ers, administrators and others who are needed to get the system running again.Watching friends and loved ones suffer is the hardest part for Nancy Bartice, who used to live near Ed Kirkpatrick and his wife. Feeling helpless to assist the couple, Bartice was trying to get to nearby Panama City Beach to get them gaso-line and, perhaps, a better place to stay. Who knows how long the 16-mile journey could take.They have been the most blessed couple,Ž said Bartice, fighting away tears. They helped me in a lot of bad situa-tions, and I want to do the same in return.Ž HURRICANEFrom Page A1A Panama City resident, who did not want his name used, receives treatment inside the Florida 5 Disaster Medical Assistance Team tent in Mexico Beach on Wednesday.

Carbon monoxide is a silent killer. Do not make this catastrophe even worse," CFO and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis said in a news release.His office offered these safety tips: € Only run a generator in a dry, well-ventilated area away from your home. Wet ground poses an increased risk of electrocution.€ Never run a generator near doors, windows, air vents or A/C units to avoid drawing in danger-ous exhaust fumes.€ Never run a generator inside your home or garage. Dangerous and potentially deadly amounts of carbon monoxide can build up.€ Never overload a generator, exceeding a generators maximum wattage rating can cause it to malfunction.€ Use UL-listed outdoor extension cords and prop-erly ground a generator to help prevent electric shock.€ Never refuel a genera-tor while it is running.€ Before shutting off a generator, power down and unplug all devices con-nected to it.TALLAHASSEETimber damage hits $1.3 billionTimber damage in Flor-ida from Hurricane Michael has been estimated at $1.3 billion, affecting almost 3 million acres of forestland."This is a catastrophic loss to the forest industry in the Florida Panhandle," Agriculture Commissioner Adam H. Putnam said in a news release Friday. "We are committed to helping Florida recover from this devastating storm and will continue to work closely with the agriculture indus-try on hurricane-related damage assessments."The 11 counties affected are some of the top timber-producing in the state: Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Leon, Liberty, Wakulla and Washington. Forest products manufac-turing facilities, such as pulp mills, sawmills and pellet and oriented strand board manufacturing also sustained damage, accord-ing to the release."As the downed forest debris dries, the potential for wildfire conditions increase," Jim Karels, state forester and director of the Florida Forest Service, said in the release. "It is critical for the Florida Forest Service to continue clearing trees and hurricane debris from roadways to re-establish fire lines and accessibility to timberlands."TALLAHASSEEHurricane insurance claims climbWithin a week of Hurricane Michael barreling into Northwest Florida, almost 70,000 insurance claims had been filed, with estimated insured losses of $680.7 million, according to data posted online by the state Office of Insurance Regulation.Insurers reported 69,950 claims as of 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, almost exactly a week after Hurricane Michael made landfall in Mexico Beach with 155 mph maximum sustained winds.The storm caused wide-spread damage in the Panhandle and the states Big Bend before continu-ing into Georgia.The vast majority of claims filed as of Wednes-day „ 54,607 „ involved residential property.

** A4 Saturday, October 20, 2018 | The News HeraldCommunity of tents, trailers erected in 2 days in SweetBayBy Patrick McCrelessThe News HeraldPANAMA CITY „ Out behind University Academy in the SweetBay community is a gleaming white city.About 10 white air-conditioned tents, filled with at least 96 cots each, sat on one side of a paved airport runway on Thursday. Parked on the other side were at least 30 white mobile trailers, some packed to the brim with bunk beds, others filled with show-ers, washing machines and kitchen equipment.The place, erected in just a couple of days, doesnt appear to have a name yet, but its mission is clear „ to house, feed and clothe at least 1,000 of the linemen working every day to restore the areas electrical system knocked out by Hurricane Michael. Jeff Rogers, spokesman for Gulf Power, said there are eight such staging areas for linemen across the region, including one at Gulf Powers main office in Panama City.Some are huge,Ž Rogers said. Crews can come in, gas up and get supplies.ŽCheryl Boone, an employee with Emergency Disaster Ser-vices, the company providing the trailers and food services at the SweetBay location, said she and a crew came from Kentucky to help house and care for the linemen. Boone said EDC works with power companies in all types of disasters.When the linemen drive their trucks in, they get a hot breakfast and pick up cases of water and boxed lunches ƒ when they come back, they take showers and get a hot dinner,Ž Boone said as she walked among the trailers Thursday morning. We do everything, every-thing they want,Ž Boone said.Boone said she didnt know how long the temporary city would remain there, but heard it could be at least a month.Angel Comacho, part of the EDC cleaning crew, said he and many others came from Orlando to help keep the tem-porary city clean or help cook food. Comacho said he and some of his crewmen live in one of the tents on site. Weve come to make sure the guys doing the electrical work are being fed and have clean towels, things like that,Ž he said.Comacho said sleeping in a tent full of other men and women isnt easy, but every-one has gotten along so far. Youve just got to respect each other,Ž he said.Frances Jones, an executive chef and independent contractor hired by the Fed-eral Emergency Management Agency, said she oversees the cooking at the temporary SweetBay city. Jones said she and her 14-member crew fed between several hundred and 1,000 people on Wednesday night. On the menu for Thursday night was a Cuban-style dinner, including baked chicken, white rice, black beans and pulled pork, Jones said.Jones said shes been a contractor with FEMA, cook-ing at disasters for five years.I do it for the adrenaline and to see the guys come in and feed them the energy they need so they can help others,Ž Jones said. We fuel their fire ƒ its very rewarding.ŽA city for repair crewsBy Jim SaundersThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ With Hurricane Michael causing massive damage in North-west Florida, a new front has opened in the battle over the controversial insurance prac-tice known as assignment of benefits.ŽGroups on both sides of the long-running debate are trying to sway residents grappling with the need to make what, in many cases, are costly home repairs.Assignment of benefits, or AOB as it is widely known, involves policyhold-ers signing over benefits to contractors, who ultimately pursue payments from insur-ance companies for repairs. The insurance industry and business groups have unsuccessfully lobbied the Legislature in recent years to change the assignment-of-benefits process, arguing that it leads to fraud, litigation and increased costs.Pointing to dangersŽ of signing over benefits after Hurricane Michael, an organization known as the Consumer Protection Coalition said Wednesday it is starting a public-service announcement campaign in Panama City and Tallahassee advising residents to contact their insurance agents before signing any insurance-related documents. The coalition includes major business and insurance groups.The Consumer Protec-tion Coalition is committed to helping residents get through the difficulty of putting their lives back together, Mark Wilson, president and CEO of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, which leads the coalition, said in a statement. Consumers need all the information they can get to help navigate making repairs to their homes and vehicles, and were working hard to provide resources to help prevent Floridians from becoming victims of AOB scams.ŽBut restoration contractors and plaintiffs attorneys contend that assignment of benefits can help homeown-ers quickly hire contractors to repair damage and force insurers to properly pay claims.The Restoration Association of Florida, an industry group, issued a news release Wednesday pushing back against efforts by business and insurance groups to dis-suade residents from using assignment of benefits.We are extremely concerned about multiple advisories warning homeowners not to sign any contracts containing assign-ment of benefits language,Ž Amanda Prater, a spokeswoman for the association, said in a statement. The assignment of benefit language is perfectly legal and is an extremely common insurance practice. Many homeowners we are meeting with understandably do not have the money to pay out of pocket for emergency services such as water dry out, mold, tree service, and roof repairs, etc. The AOB language is there to allow covered repairs to be made to ones property immediately „ and the contractors will bill the homeowners insur-ance company directly.ŽMuch of the debate in recent years about assign-ment of benefits has focused on water-damage claims in South Florida. Those claims often have involved such things as busted pipes, not storm damage.But amid continuing legal and political fights about the practice, it appears attention also will turn to what will be months of repairs and insur-ance claims in Northwest Florida.On a hurricane page on its website, Citizens Property Insurance Corp. tells resi-dents to call the state-backed insurer before signing over benefits.Some contractors will ask you to sign your benefits over to them before starting emergency repairs. This is called assignment of benefits,Ž the Citizens website says. Do not sign over your insurance benefits to anyone. Signing over your benefits can cause an increase in costs for which you could be left on the hook.ŽThe Restoration Association of Florida, meanwhile, said it is encouraging policyholders to contact the association if they have questions about assignment-of-benefits contracts.In a crisis such as this, Floridians should be doing all we can to encourage and help homeowners get their lives back to normal as soon as possible,Ž Prater said. We recognize there may be certain groups trying to take advantage of the current situ-ation and we would strongly encourage homeowners to read all contracts carefully to ensure they are only agreeing to an assignment of benefits for a limited scope of services that are being provided by that specific contractor.ŽMichael adds fuel to ght over AOB Emergency Disaster Services personnel on Thursday still were setting up a mobile city in the SweetBay community at the former P anama City airport.

** A6 Saturday, October 20, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Collin Breaux747-5081 | @PCNHCollinBPANAMA CITY „ Little by little, the St. Andrews community is picking up the pieces and reopening stores along Beck Avenue.People were out the day after Hurricane Michael to start cleaning up Beck Avenue and even passing out water, and now that its more than a week out many of the businesses are talking about reopen-ing or already have. At Sunjammers, owner Brad Stephens said he has sold four kayaks since the storm despite the buildings crumbling facade. Others, such as popular Mexican restaurant Los Antojitos have set Monday as the reopen-ing date.Finns Island Style Grub in Little Village should reopen when the power comes back, owner Justin Buxton said Tues-day while clearing out trees with employees and friends.Though utility lines and debris litter the waterfront neighborhood, making a stroll through the peaceful area feels like being on the televi-sion show The Walking Dead.Ž Buxton said he aims to rebuild and get the community back into a routine.We plan on opening our doors as soon as we can,Ž Buxton said. We plan to be a beacon of light and hope.ŽNo exact opening date is set, though Buxton said theyll open for custom-ers that can pay and give free meals to people hit hard by Michael.All businesses along Beck Avenue appeared to be closed early Tuesday. Some still were boarded up. Handmade signs at Floriopolis and Enzos Pizza and Grill say Dont stealŽ and (Expletive) Michael we will be back ASAP.ŽOver at Shrimp Boat and Barefoot Bar and Grill, general manager Adam Goff and kitchen manager Antonio Mid-dleton were checking out the restaurant and plan-ning their next move. Shrimp Boat also plans to reopen when power comes back and will serve buffet-style meals at an affordableŽ price, likely no more than $15. Residents need a hot meal, said Goff.Our goal is to get this open as soon as we can,Ž said Goff. Were all going through it so (customers) can hope-fully forget about whats happening and get back to normalcy.ŽMiddleton, a local native, called the devastation heartbreaking. Goff recently moved to the area since he thought Bay County didnt get hurricanes.Panama City might never be the same but in time it will recover and services will come back, said Goff.Others, including Erin Dodd, who worked at Alices on Bayview, are less optimistic.It may be months before I can go back to work,Ž said Dodd.St. Andrews making a comebackBy Zack McDonaldThe News HeraldMEXICO BEACH „ A group of armed militia members identifying themselves with The Oath KeepersŽ was arrested Thursday night for allegedly violating Bay Countys mandatory curfew put in place after Hurricane Michael, according to official reports.Anthony Cusumano, 34, and Tammy Joan Crandield, 48, were charged with misde-meanor curfew violation while Thomas Hubert Terry, 34; Brian Charles Calkins, 31; and Charles Randall Moye, 44, were charged with violating the Bay County curfew and open carry of a firearm „ both misdemeanors.According to Bay County Sheriffs Office reports, the group was driving around in Mexico Beach after the sundown curfew in a white Ford Crown Victoria and a maroon Nissan Frontier, patrolling the area. The Ford was dressed to look like a patrol cruiser and every member was wearing tactical clothing, including one vest that stated tactical officer.ŽWhen officers spoke with the group, they allegedly identified them-selves as members of The Oath Keepers, a militia group that describes itself as non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first respond-ers, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,Ž according to the website. The descrip-tion further states the groups allegiance is to the constitution, and they will not obeyŽ unconsti-tutional orders such as orders to disarm.BCSO seized several semi-automatic assault rifles and a large cache of ammo from the group. They were then trans-ported to the Bay County jail for booking.BCSO Maj. Jimmy Stanford said the group wasnt local to the Mexico Beach area.Theyre out there patrolling the streets,Ž he said. They dont know the area, they dont know the community, they dont know our laws, and that just lends itself to dangers.ŽStanford said the east side of Bay County, which is still suffering from widespread power outages, has a substantial police presence. All local officers continue to work more than 12-hour shifts daily and have assistance from hundreds of officers from outside agencies. Stanford said that people should protect their own property but do so while adhering to the law. We have a large pres-ence, were seeing a decline in looting and stealing,Ž he said. We hope to continue to see that.

Sticking up from the rubble like one remaining tooth in a jawful of decay, each one is a haunting reminder of what used to exist around it.In many cases, they were saved by additional strategically placed nails, some small metal connectors and window shutters that created a sealed package „ low-cost reinforce-ments that determined whose home survived and whose was destroyed by the power of Hurricane Michael.There are the five Habitat for Humanity houses in Panama City, a waterfront vacation home in Mexico Beach, a house built by a homeowner and a few of his church friends „ modest structures that lost shingles and suffered water damage but stand largely untouched overlooking the wreckage of buildings that were shredded and ripped from their foundations. We have evidence that we can construct affordable housing that is resilient,Ž said Leslie Chap-man-Henderson, president of the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting property from disasters.After Hurricane Andrew, which hit Florida in 1992, the state instituted a stricter build-ing code in the early 2000s that required new buildings to use tougher nails and have more puncture-resistant walls, among other changes. But industry experts said that homeowners can go further in strengthening their homes without spending tens of thousands of dollars. Often the difference between a roof that stays on and one that flies off is the connection method,Ž Chapman-Henderson said. A handful of additional nails can mean the difference.ŽAs the storm barreled down on the Panhandle coast last week, Christina Harding decided to hunker down with her partner and three children in the home they have lived in for two years.They nervously watched as Michaels ferocious winds ripped apart the trailer park across the street, hurling huge sections of it at their house, including several trash cans and pieces of the trailers roofs.Please dont let it hit us,Ž Harding prayed.Theirs was one of the five houses recently erected in the neighborhood by Habitat for Humanity, a global nonprofit that builds affordable homes. Harding, an office manager for a loan company, had worked alongside the builders, invest-ing her own sweat equity to construct the house 1.5 miles from the bay. It was topped by a metal roof, but she had no idea how the house would fare in a storm. When the winds died down, one of Hardings daughters, who was away, was panicstricken when she failed repeatedly to reach her mother by phone. Then she saw aerial photos of Panama City. When I saw those five metal roofs I knew the houses were good and you guys were good,Ž Harding said her daughter told her.In all, the five Habitat houses lost some siding, an AC unit and one window. Its just amazing,Ž Harding said.Habitat for Humanity devel-oped a reputation for creating storm-resistant structures after Hurricane Andrew. Its houses were built beyond code with hurricane ties, thicker lumber, windstorm plywood and metal roofs.Hardings home was built to what is known as Fortified GoldŽ by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), a nonprofit, independent research organization that runs a program called Fortified a set of voluntary building standards that go beyond code to help harden homes against Mother Nature.ŽThey work closely with roofers, builders and nonprofit groups to erect homes with wind protections that strengthen the roof, with roof-to-wall attachments and stronger windows and doors.Roy Wright, president and CEO of IBHS, said a critical issue is to make sure the edge of roof will be able to withstand the wind so the roof wont pop off.ŽThis can be done through special nails and metal attach-ments between the roof and the walls, he said.Homeowners have to demand that their homes are rebuilt in a strong way. There are a lot of shady actors who chase these storms and take advantage of people,Ž Wright said. This is not something that costs tens of thousands of dollars, this is within reach of anyone to fortify their roof, windows and doors. Homeowners just have to be armed with the right questions.ŽWhile not cheap, the cost of fortifying a house against hurricane-force winds is not as unaffordable as many homeowners think, he said. Retrofitting a roof is about $1,000 for a 2,000-squarefoot roof, the average size in the United States. When build-ing a house from scratch, it could cost as little as 3 percent to 5 percent more to harden the house, fortify the roof, windows and doors and tie the house together tightly from top to bottomŽ in some areas of the country, he said.Hurricane-proofing also helps protect structures from projectiles, which can breach windows and doors and create upward pressure on the roof. Hurricane proofing should have shutters for all openings to prevent that, and the stron-gest protections include what is essentially bulletproof glass.Garrett Walton, CEO of Rebuild Northwest Florida, a nonprofit launched after Hurricane Ivan in 2004, has helped 14,000 homeowners in the Pensacola region to fortify homes built before Floridas statewide building codes came into effect.The group, which uses funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, puts the cost of bring-ing a house up to statewide standards at $9,200.The benefits, the group said, include having a safer home as well as potential discounts on insurance and less likelihood of being displaced. He said the homes were tested in torna-does and fared very well.While homes built before World War II tend to do well in storms, those built during the postwar baby-boom period were constructed quickly and cheaply, leaving many homes vulnerable, Walton said.In addition, those strong building codes put into place in 2001 did have exceptions, according to Chapman-Hen-derson, including the provision for the Panhandle, which was in place during the building boom of the early 2000s. In the Panhandle, the full code applied only to a one-mile strip along the coast, leaving houses built during that period fur-ther inland vulnerable to high winds.Three years ago, Paul Jack-son built a vacation home one block from the waterfront in Mexico Beach. He knew to expect that extra hurricane protection would amount to some 7 percent to 10 percent of construction costs. He said he invested closer to 15 percent of his $400,000 cost on added investments in insulated-con-crete-form walls, instead of traditional wood construction.But he also calculated that, even with those higher upfront costs, he would break even in six years because of lower insurance rates and utility bills „ fortified homes often have stronger windows that dont leak air-conditioning, for instance.And there was, of course, the incalculable savings in worry. He built to the IBHS Fortified Gold program. Jackson said his door was battered in by a piling that had ripped free from another home or dock and the house took in about three feet of water. But while his neighbors will have to start from scratch, he has to replace only cabinets, furniture and drywall.About 50 miles inland, Jim Wise built his Blountstown house himself, with help from about a dozen members of his church, who set the framework and trusses, and a few drywall and plumbing contractors. He said the house was strapped down to the con-crete floor: Thats code. We wouldnt skimp on that.Ž He followed professional advice to use extra nails and hurricane clips to attach the roof. It pays not to cut that stuff short,Ž said Wise, a former owner of several furniture stores.The house survived five hours of nonstop wind and rain, Wise said. Four trees fell on his workshop, and the greenhouse lost a lot of plas-tic and fiberglass, but other than some damaged trim, the house weathered the storm just fine.Following the state building codes alone can help, but it wasnt a foolproof solution for Debbi and Jim Prantl. When they saw their dream beachfront house on aerial news footage, it had been torn from its pilings at least 12 feet tall and pushed entirely across U.S. 98. It was almost intact except for one key detail.It used to be a four-story house,Ž Debbi Prantl said. What you see here at ground level is the third floor and up there is the fourth floor. The second floor is that [rubble] underneath. We have no idea where the first floor went.ŽBut the hurricane-rated glass in what remains of the house was intact, Jim Prantl noted. The contents of the house were jumbled but remained.We had minimal flood insurance because we never imagined anything but wind damage,Ž Debbi Prantl said. I dont know what we do now. I dont think its sunk in yet.ŽIn tiny Greensboro, many houses suffered as Michael made landfall 80 miles away. But at least one house had no damage whatsoever „ the Dezell House, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Built between 1912 and 1919 of cypress and yellow heart pine by the owner of a sawmill, the house is almost entirely original. The West Gadsden Historical Society re-shingled the roof five years ago, but the roof structure is unchanged, said Jane Clark, vice president of the society.Not a drop of water infiltrated the Arts and Crafts, prairie-style home, unusual for the area because it was not elevated. James Dezell, who lived in Chicago and southwest Missouri after the Civil War, later became Greensboros first mayor. Nothing in the house, nothing, has been structurally modified in any way,Ž Clark said. It is a true testimony to how things were built.ŽHomes intact often surpassed building codesThese two Habitat for Humanity homes came through Hurricane Michael with minor to no damage in the 2900 block of East Sixth Court in Panama City, while their older neighbors did not fare so well.

This isnt going to turn out well. Andrea Coneal: Good riddance. Therapy dogs from all across the state, along with hot, fresh pizza, will be in Panama City Beach at two locations this weekend. Denise Lott: How about all the dogs that were sent to California and Seattle? They would have been perfect! They need a human and a human needs them. Dick Pewterschmidt: What, does PCB need consoling from their mildly devastated side with power and water they currently have? Whos able to drive all the way out there from the hardest hit parts in town and Mexico Beach with resources already is short supply, as well as congested traf“ c? Anna Walsh: We are displaced from Panama City and was blessed by my parents with a temporary home with water and power. Let me be the “ rst to say thank you! My kids have been through a lot this past nine days and to be honest this will be a great getaway for them and a great comfort to be able to get their little minds off of what has happened to their home. Thank you! Erin Maxwell waited in line for fuel for more than an hour Thursday at a gasoline station that never opened. Im tired and want to go to sleep.

Kelly Miller: Ive had luck at both stations at 79 and Back Beach, also the Shell and Tom Thumb in Southport both have gas. John Cugler: This morning was the “ rst day a few of them had gas. Doesnt excuse the fact someone was holding it hostage. Yolanda Ann: And the prices „ why do we have it so high when other areas who were also hit have it at least 20 cents cheaper? READER FEEDBACK ANOTHER VIEWThe U.S. a rmed forces are good at many things but conspicuously bad at managing talent. As a result, many good officers are quitting. The Armys latest leadership survey found fewer than half of active-duty junior officers hoped to stay in the military after 20 years of service, when their pensions kick in, and only half of active-duty leaders say morale is high or very high. In the Air Force, which has a shortfall of some 2,000 pilots, the problem is acute. The Defense Department recognizes the problem but hasnt done enough about it. Perhaps Congress can do better. Its latest defense policy act calls for change „ including reform of the services longstanding up-or-outŽ promotion system. Together with a few other reforms, that would help a lot. Under the current system, officers must stay on a promotion timeline or be eased out after 20 years. While this system aids junior officers who stand out early in their careers, it tends to put good warriors into desk jobs, discourages risk-taking, and fails late bloomers and those who want to take unconventional paths or go into specialties that the military has undervalued. Congress would have the Pentagon cut back on promoting officers based on the year they were commissioned and expand competitive categoriesŽ that recognize specialized skills. The most promising talent could be promoted earlier. Service members with the most valuable skills who fail to be promoted on traditional timelines would no longer be forced out, but could stay for years longer in their current ranks. In addition, Congress wants civilians with crucial skills in areas such as cyber-technology to be able to enter service with ranks up to Army colonel or Navy captain. And it supports allowing service members to be released from active duty for education, private-sector or even family issues without short-circuiting their careers. This all looks good on paper. It would have looked even better if Congress had set deadlines for action. Meanwhile, here are some other ideas. An Air Force initiative allowing retired airmen to return to active service should be broadened to the other services. Officers (and perhaps enlisted troops) should be allowed a greater voice in choosing their next assignments or opting to stay in their current jobs; studies have shown this improves retention and productivity. Commanders should have more freedom in choosing their top subordinates. This summer, after an anonymous Air Force officer wrote a series of op-ed articles with trenchant analysis of flaws in the system, Air Force Chief of Staff David Goldfein offered the author a job on his staff. That kind of openness should be welcomed. When it comes to managing personnel, the Pentagon needs all the new ideas it can get. This editorial first appeared in Bloomberg Opinion.US military has a management problemThese are the best of times, and the worst of times, for being well informed. We have a vast landscape of news sources, yet we tend to view them through a peephole rather than a porthole. If you believe, as I do, that it is a civic responsibility to stay abreast of current events, consider taking a few steps to be a better news consumer. €Dont be screen-centric. TV, computers and phones bring us most of our news in forms that are fast and convenient. But if youre among those who never, ever, come in contact with a physical newspaper or magazine, fix that. More research is needed, but it appears people absorb content better when read on a printed page, especially with longer articles. Regardless, holding a paper or magazine and scanning each page is distinctly different, and often more enlightening, than scrolling through the same material on a screen. € Listen to NPR. I got my start in radio at a time when national hourly newscasts were detailed, reliable and easily available across the dial. They still are produced by several networks, but on many affiliated stations they have been truncated or eliminated. The shining exception is National Public Radio. Driving through Mississippi and Alabama this summer, a regional network of NPR stations proved to be my best connection to news from Washington and the world. NPRs hourly newscasts are carried by more than 1,000 stations, where they tend to be part of the conversation, not part of the clutter. €Sample Hannity and Maddow. Depending on your political orientation, you probably watch either Sean Hannity on Fox News Channel or Rachel Maddow on MSNBC „but never both! Try crossing over, at least occasionally. €Go up front. Even if youre not a news junkie you are likely to enjoy perusing the front pages of hundreds of daily newspapers, online, for free. The Newseum in Washington ( assembles readable PDFs of front pages „from the Daily News-Miner in Fairbanks, Alaska, to the St. Augustine Record in Florida. If its true that all politics is local,Ž it can be said that all news is too. Youll be surprised at how dramatically the mood of the nation is reflected on these daily fronts. €Go long. Too often we rely on summaries of summaries (indeed, the e-letters cited above are part of that). Stretch your mind and your insight by balancing news digests with long-form articles. Some of the best reporting these days is being done by The New Yorker, The Atlantic and The New York Times Magazine, among others that invest heavily in hiring top writers and giving them the time and space to really drill down. €Talk about it. Nowadays we are so set in our opinions that were afraid to discuss current events with colleagues, friends and family. If theyre in another camp, or have a differing view, the risk of broaching a subject seems greater than any possible reward. Yet, this very type of discourse is central to the evolution of our own thinking. Ive found that creating a small email circle is a useful way to bounce thoughts off people I know, without the peril of raised tempers or overly hurt feelings. If youre brave enough to talk about news at the office or dinner table, my advice is to listen more and pontificate less.

** A10 Saturday, October 20, 2018 | The News HeraldBy Jim TurnerThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Acri-mony, rather than ideas, has taken the stage in the contest for Florida chief financial officer.The race between Republican incumbent Jimmy Patronis and former state Sen. Jeremy Ring, a Broward County Democrat, is an undercard to the November battles for governor and U.S. senator and has been marked by attacks. Recently, Patronis also has needed to shift attention to his wife undergoing surgery for breast cancer and to his hometown of Panama City taking a devastating hit from Hurricane Michael.Often, the chief financial officer job draws less attention than the other Cabinet positions of attorney general and agriculture commissioner. But the job has a wide range of duties, including oversee-ing the states purse strings, serving as the state fire mar-shal and voting on Cabinet issues.Ring admits the position is extraordinarily important but the lowest profile.ŽBut attention in the campaign has focused on issues that have relatively little to do with the jobs duties and instead has involved such things as Rings resume at the internet com-pany Yahoo!, Patronis crash of a state-issued car while driving to a meeting with a political consultant and Patronis ties to Gov. Rick Scott.This race has gone very negative very quickly with each creating a website attacking the other „ and especially supporters of the other „ for all sorts of ques-tionable behavior, unethical and/or illegal,Ž University of Central Florida politicalscience professor Aubrey Jewett said.Ring, noting that former state CFO Alex Sink helped guide the state through the recession a decade ago, painted Patronis as a nice guyŽ who is only in his current job because of Scotts patronage. Scott appointed Patronis to the Cabinet post after former CFO Jeff Atwater resigned last year.If Rick Scott was CEO of HCA today, he wouldnt hire (Patronis) in a junior finance position in his accounting department,Ž Ring said, referring to Scotts background as a hospital executive. Hed hire him as a community relations person for his hospital, because thats what hes good at.ŽPatronis campaign, mean-while, has applied the tag Risky RingŽ to its opponent, characterizing the Parkland Democrats entrepreneurial track record as flops and failures.ŽRing talks up his experience at Yahoo, but his business record in Florida tells a different story, with multiple business ventures flopping or failing just years after Ring started them or took control,Ž said Katie Strickland, a spokeswoman for the Patronis campaign.Kathryn DePalo, who teaches in Florida International Universitys Department of Politics and International Relations, expects heavy party-line voting in the contest. It will be on the Nov. 6 ballot along with the gubernatorial race between Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis and the U.S. Senate race between Scott and incumbent Demo-crat Bill Nelson.This is probably the least-known race, so it will come down to which party voters pick at the top of the ticket,Ž DePalo said. The one wrench in all of that could be ticket splitting, particularly among NPAs (no-party affiliation voters). If they, say, vote for Gillum for governor and Scott for Senate, then it will be which party they tend to lean toward anyway for these Cabinet races.ŽPatronis, 46, is part of a family that operates the half-century-old Capt. Andersons Restaurant in Panama City.An early supporter of Scotts first gubernatorial run in 2010, Patronis served eight years in the Florida House and was chairman of the House Economic Affairs Committee. Scott appointed Patronis to the Florida Public Service Commission before choosing him to succeed Atwater as CFO.Last week, Patronis publicly disclosed that his wife, Katie, was being treated for breast cancer. Meanwhile, he rushed to Panama City to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.In his campaign ads, Patronis has highlighted his support during this years legislative session for a new workers compensation insurance law designed to assist first responders who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.Patronis said he would like to work with lawmakers to bring down the state corporate income-tax rate as a response to a federal tax package approved in December.Because of what happened at the federal level, were seeing gasoline being poured on the fire and this rush of folks to move from the Northeast, the Michigans, the New Yorks, the Bostons, the Connecticuts, to a less-tax environment like we have in Florida,Ž Patronis said. Theyre bringing their wealth, theyre bringing their money. Theyre bringing their jobs.ŽRing, 48, spent five years with Yahoo!, coming aboard in 1996 as the companys first sales chief, four years after he graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in advertising.Patronis political commit-tee Treasure Florida accused Ring in an ad of falsely claim-ing to be a founder of Yahoo!, but the sources for the claim were three media reports in which the writers affixed the founderŽ label.Ring served in the state Senate from 2006 to 2016, where he was focused on issues involving venture capital, insurance and pensions. Widely viewed as a moderate Democrat, he pushed to create the State Office of Technology and helped establish the Florida Growth Fund through a bill that encouraged the State Board of Administration to invest a portion of state retirement money in highgrowthŽ homegrown tech companies.Ring, a Massachusetts native, said if elected CFO, his priorities would be such things as protecting the state retirement system and expanding an innovation economyŽ in the state.Ring also is critical of how the Cabinet has operated under Scott, meeting infrequently and spending most of the time it does meet on ceremonial activities, such as handing out awards and highlighting dogs in need of adoption.This is the state board of directors of Florida. It has to start acting that way. It has to start meeting once or twice every month and act the way the board is sup-posed to act,Ž Ring said. If this was a publicly traded company, the shareholders would revolt.ŽState CFO race goes very negativePatronis Ring

No ath-letic competitions will occur on the Gulf Coast campus, however, with teams able to finish their seasons offsite and around the state.Although were still deter-mining the full extent of the damage to the campus, its important to try to get back to a sense of normalcy as much as possible and wherever possible,Ž Gulf Coast President Dr. John Holdnak said in a statement. We will move forward with our sports programs while we are rebuilding the college. This is a much needed step forward as we bring our campus back to life.ŽOn Nov. 3-4, the Lady Commodores volleyball team will travel to New Port Richey at Pasco-Hernando State College to participate in the Sun-Lakes Conference/ District P Tournament.

Florida State (3-3, 1-3) has had growing pains in Willie Taggarts first year as coach, losing by 23 points at Syra-cuse and allowed a 20-point, second-half lead slip away at Miami. We have half of a season left and there are still a lot of goals that we can accom-plish,Ž Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said. Our focus is on our process and getting better. Ive had sea-sons that we start well and dont finish well and seasons you dont start out well and finish right.Im very optimistic with this football team that we can find a way to put it together and find a way to get some wins.ŽWake Forest has built one of the nations top rushing attacks behind 215-pound junior Cade Carney, who has 446 rushing yards and four TDs. He averages 5.2 yards per carry for the Deacons, who average 232.8 rushing yards per game „ 20th in the FBS in rush offense.The Deacons also feature the ACCs top receiver in sophomore Greg Dortch, who leads the league with eight receptions per game and has 48 of Wake Forests 106 catches.Meanwhile, Florida State struggled to run behind an injury-plagued offensive line. The Seminoles have committed 14 turnovers and rank 111th in the FBS in pass defense.There have been positive signs for the Seminoles. Junior defensive end Brian Burns has seven of the teams 19 sacks, and Florida State ranks 8th in the FBS in allowing just 101.1 rushing yards per game. The offense has often been one-dimen-sional behind a ground game that has sputtered, but junior quarterback Deondre Francois has connected with freshman Tamorrion Terry on five touchdown passes.A season that began with such high expectations has been underwhelming. Florida State could have built some momentum for the second half of the year with a win at Miami, but couldnt close out its rival despite leading 27-7 in the third quarter.I think were getting better in every aspect,Ž Taggart said. We got to take care of the football. You look at a lot games we lost, we werent good on the turnover battle and thats so important.ŽSome other things to watch when Wake Forest visits Florida State: Ground to a haltOne of Florida States perceived strengths going into 2018 was its talent and depth at running back. But that wasnt the case in the first half of the season.Cam Akers has just 362 yards and that includes an 85-yard run in the opener against Virginia Tech. Remove that run, and the sophomore is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. The Seminoles ground attack ranks 126th in the FBS, averaging just 92.8 yards per game.Were one off every time,Ž guard Cole Minshew said. Its four guys doing right, one guy doing wrong. Five guys doing right, one guy doing wrong. Eventually were all going to hit it right.Ž And that could happen on Saturday as Florida State faces the ACCs worst rush defense. Wake Forest ranks 121st in the FBS, allowing 236.5 rushing yards per game. Defensive woesWake Forests defense has been a mess.After Boston College scored 41 and Notre Dame dropped 56 on Wake Forest, coach Dave Clawson fired defensive coordinator Jay Sawvel. The main problem: injuries have depleted depth on defense the Demon Dea-cons keep giving up big plays.Boston College scored six touchdowns of 20-plus yards, Notre Dame racked up 566 offensive yards and Clemson had five touch-downs of 50-plus yards. Touchdown streakFlorida State hasnt lost to Wake Forest in Tallahassee since 2006. Thats also the last time the Demon Dea-cons scored a touchdown at Doak Campbell Stadium.Wake Forest has managed just 21 points in the last five road losses to the Seminoles, including shutouts in 2010 and 12. The Demon Deacons have played better against Florida State at home, losing 26-19 in the final minutes in 2017 and 24-16 in 2015.The Seminoles have a six-game win streak overall in the series.In this Sept. 15 “ le photo, Florida State head coach Willie Taggart, left, watches a replay beside defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett in the fourth quarter of an NCAA college football game against Syracuse, in Syracuse, N.Y.

The Gators will play the Seahawks on Oct. 26 in Eastpoint at 7 p.m., and they also intend to play Nov. 2 at home against Florida A&M for Senior Night.Blountstown and Walton are planning to play their game Oct. 27 at 11 a.m., at Holmes County High School, according to Blue Devils coach Kevin Womble, though he said it hadnt been 100 percent confirmed.Franklin County will make up its previously canceled game with Lighthouse Private Christian Academy on Oct. 30 and play Munroe as scheduled on Nov. 2. Marianna will host Holmes County on Oct. 26 at 3 p.m. Port St. Joe has also expressed a desire to continue playing and still has its Nov. 2 game at North Florida Christian scheduled. The News Herald semester,Ž Kandler said. That said, we might be play-ing at home in two weeks. Right now, were putting together a tentative schedule for how this works if the gym is not available.ŽBoth mens and womens basketball teams have canceled their final preseason jamborees for today, with the GC men originally scheduled to play Faulkner in Montgomery, Ala., and the women canceling their appearance in the South-ern Jamboree in Tallahassee.Lady Commodores coach Roonie Scovel said she expected to have all of her players back in town by this afternoon and to have their first practice since the hurri-cane Sunday. Mens coach Jay Powell said all of his players evacuated and havent gotten back yet. The Gulf Coast men open the regular season Nov. 2 against Coastal Alabama-South at Pensacola State.Kandler said its difficult to know the full extent of the damage to the Billy Harrison Field House until Belfor Prop-erty Restoration finishes its work on the gym. Its just kind of vague,Ž he said. We know there is some water damage in the building. I dont know if anybody has even assessed how much is in the building yet. (Belfor) will come in and do their stuff and well do what we can to get everything back and playable.ŽKandler, who is also the Commodores baseball coach, said there was significant fence damageŽ to the base-ball and softball fields, adding, But we have a little bit of time on that. Well take care of our immediate needs first and then theyll get to ours.ŽThere still is no set date for when Gulf Coast will resume classes, but Kandler said he hopes and believes that the schools athletic teams wont lose any more games than they already have.Obviously, volleyball lost part of the schedule, theres nothing we can do about that,Ž he said. Our hope is that our sports program wont lose any more games of the schedule. If we have to play some home games on the road, well make those adjustments. I hope baseball and softball will be ready to go. The only guarantee is we will be playing, its just a matter of where.Ž RESUMEFrom Page B1 in 15 years „ this is their first trip since winning it all in 2013.Los Angeles has a 3-2 lead in the NLCS going into Game 6 on Friday night at Miller Park.We got four more wins. That was very, very spe-cial, absolutely. But we want more,Ž Price said.Pitching on only three days rest after Boston ace Chris Sale was ruled out while recovering from a stomach illness, Price struck out nine in six shutout innings of three-hit ball. The left-hander, who has had a rough time in Boston since signing a $217 million contract before the 2016 season, entered 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in 11 career postseason starts.Price was warming in the bullpen as Game 4 ended, perhaps jeopardizing his readiness for Thursday. Instead, that session may have keyed his dominant performance.It felt good. Honestly, it really started last night in the bullpen. Threw quite a few pitches to come in for the next hitter, found something out while doing that and kind of just carried that over to today,Ž Price said.Price tipped his cap to a few hundred Red Sox fans assem-bled behind the Boston dugout while they cheered as he walked off the field following postgame interviews.After dropping the opener at home, Boston took four straight „ including three in a row in Houston to improve to 5-0 on the road in these playoffs.The Red Sox are the first team to win four straight postseason games against a 100-win club since the 2004 Red Sox against both the Yankees and Cardi-nals, STATS said.Since Day One, we knew we had something special. We just needed to stay healthy and go out and execute,Ž Bradley said.Left fielder Andrew Benintendi caught a long fly for the last out „ not nearly as dramatic as his game-saving diving grab the previous night.The last out yesterday was like around 12:10. So we won two on my birthday. Ill take it. Ill take it,Ž Cora said.There was a smattering of boos from the home crowd as the Red Sox charged onto the field, embracing as they jumped around near the middle of the diamond. They posed for a team picture on the mound a couple of minutes later as members of Houstons pitching staff slowly walked by, glancing at the revelry on their way back from the bullpen.They beat us. We ran out of wins,Ž Astros manager AJ Hinch said. Despite leading the majors in wins during the regular season, the Red Sox were underdogs against a Houston team that defeated the Dodgers in last years World Series and romped past Cleveland in the Division Series this month.But stars Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and the Astros hobbled to the finish in a hum-bling defeat. Still, no team has repeated as World Series champs since the New York Yankees won three straight from 1998-2000.

** B6 Saturday, October 20, 2018 | The News Herald FAITHStephanie Nusbaum, Faith editor, 850-747-5073 Calendar submissions: pcnhnews@pcnh.comLast week I wrote about the beauty from the ashes that would arise from this storm that ravaged our county. This week has been full of such stories. As per normal, when I got to Thursday, I considered the glory the Lord has shined around. From the many I have witnessed „ I saw this in real time. I asked a volunteer (Stacy, from Woodlawn in PCB) to grab a photo then write this and send it my way. Daniel and his son came all the way from Ohio to bring supplies collected in their community. They distributed throughout the community and before leaving Bay County drove past my branch of the church in Parker. They saw us out there delivering food and other basic necessities and decided they would leave what they had left. They had some water and a teddy bear with a note. The bear was donated by a woman in Ohio named Linda who had a special connection with the teddy. She knew that she was being called to let the teddy go so she attached a note and asked Daniel to pass it on to a child. Daniel got to Parker and told the volunteers that he had to get back on the road to head home and still had not heard from God which child to give it to despite seeing many children. He left the bear with our volunteer Stacy, as she assured him that she would wait for God to tell her. Daniel left to return back to Ohio. Another volunteer, within hearing of the conversation, stated that he believed that the little girl from a family who came by this morning needed the bear and went back to his work. Later, another volunteer came up and after hearing about the bear said, the little girl from this morning needs the bear.Ž Volunteers knew if the bear was for that little girl that God would bring her back. As the volunteers began to prepare to leave an energy of activity began to sound in the parking lot as volunteers motioned. The little girl had returned. Volunteers ran with the teddy bear to this chosen little girl, Royalle. She beamed with the most beautiful smile and embraced her new teddy bear as her mother stood in awe and tearful of the love she witnessed. Lindas teddy bear was now in arms of a child who needed comfort during her darkest day! Lindas hope was that someone would know that they were not abandoned and today God showed his love through the gift of a treasured teddy bear. The day earlier, my son and I walked around my neighborhood, where the storm spared none of us. I met many who received with great joy the disaster buckets made by volunteers up in Decatur, Alabama. My son Scott returned home with great excitement telling me how hed just witnessed a true glory sighting. He told me this: Walking down the street I saw a Carolyn who said, I love your Dads columns; I read them every week.Ž She said she was good on supplies but that she was so happy when she found out that my dad was the preacher at Parker because she just loved reading these sightings. I also drove further down the street and found somebody who said they needed some ice and I told them that earlier down the street there were people who were offering ice and that I would be happy to go down and pick up some and bring her some back. So I went over to the house and picked up two bags of ice and went right back down the street and deliver it to the people, telling Miss Betty, their neighbor right down the road, was giving her this ice. Scott and both neighbors knew they were witnessing God at work, caring for them all, in the midst of their devastation. God is here caring for us all in the midst of our storms. Look for it. Be it. When you catch a Glory Sighting, consider sharing it with this column via, Facebook at ParkerPastor, call 871-4747 and on the web at mypumc. org. The Rev Jack Stanley serves as pastor of the UMC of Parker.GLORY SIGHTINGSLove shines through dark days J a c k S t a n l e y Jack Stanley Jewish prayer book annotated by actress, who converted in 1956, could fetch thousandsBy Isaac Stanley-BeckerThe Washington PostMarilyn Monroe was the woman on the screen „ hardly even real, so exalted was her public image.But she was also a person of the book, as some Jews call themselves. The actress converted to Judaism in 1956 when she married the playwright Arthur Miller, who was of Polish-Jewish descent. Now, more than half a century after Monroes death in 1962, her personal prayer book „ known as a siddur, derived from the Hebrew for orderŽ „ is going under the hammer in New York. It could be worth thousands.Annotations are believed to have been inscribed by the actress herself, record-ing the instructions that she had received either from Miller or from the rabbi who had given her the book.Omit,Ž it says next to certain prayers. Skip.ŽThe auction on Nov. 12 brings new attention to a little-known side of a celebrity about whom everything is known, from her movies to her marriages to her melancholy. Numer-ous items have been sold over the years, including her lipstick and leather san-dals, her nose drops, and an X-ray of her chest.But her prayer book reveals something different about the star of The Seven Year ItchŽ and Some Like It HotŽ who once said, according to Ms. Magazine, I restore myself when Im alone. A career is born in public „ talent in privacy.ŽIt means that deep inside, she has a Jewish soul,Ž said Jonathan Greenstein, the owner of the auction house J. Greenstein & Co., which is running the sale in Cedar-hurst, New York. She took it very seriously, even after she left Arthur Miller. She considered herself Jewish.ŽThe prayer book has a beige, Bakelite cover, decorated with religious ornamentation, including a Jewish star and a shofar, the rams horn whose wailing notes ring out from syna-gogues on Jewish holidays. It bears the imprint of the Avenue N Jewish Center in Brooklyn, the synagogue attended by Miller, who was Monroes third husband. The 1922 copyright is from Vienna.If it hadnt been used by the actress, the book of daily prayers would be worth between $100 and $200, Greenstein estimated. But because it belonged to Monroe, he said, it could fetch between $7,000 and $12,000 „ more if two crazy people start bidding for it.ŽGreenstein received the book several months ago from an Israel-based American who had bought it from Monroes estate in 1999, in an auction run by Christies. The original buyer, who is now of advanced age, left the item with her sister in the United States, and recently consigned it to Greenstein to resell. It didnt find a buyer in a Doyle auction last year.Greenstein said the prayer book has generated significant interest. Since news of its upcoming sale appeared Monday in the Jewish press, my phone has been blowing up liter-ally nonstop,Ž he said.In 35 years, this is the most significant celebrity Judaica weve ever had,Ž he said in an interview with The Washington Post. He has auctioned musician Sammy Davis Jr.s menorah, as well as the entire collection of Jewish ritual art amassed by Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard Law School professor who has taken to defending President Donald Trump on occasion. Weve had some incredible items. But nothing like this „ Marilyn Monroes personal siddur.ŽOne potential buyer, Greenstein said, is a member of the Avenue N Jewish Center where Monroe and Miller prayed. He said the man had con-tacted him two weeks ago, after reading an announce-ment in a local Long Island paper, and said he wanted to buy the item for the syn-agogues archives.In my heart of hearts, I would like to see it back at the synagogue,Ž the auc-tioneer said. But the truth is that it might have a better home with a private collec-tor. Instead of a museum collection, it might have more meaning to someone who actually wants to use it.ŽAnyone who uses it could find themselves following the scribbled instructions left in pencil by Monroe. The notes appear to be in the movie stars handwrit-ing, Greenstein said.Significant wear on the pages, as well as on the spine, which is almost separated from the body, suggests that Monroe made daily use of the book, he added.It was a daily prayer book. I believe it was used daily,Ž Greenstein said. It has had a lifetime of wear in the very short period from the time she was married to Miller to her death. She probably was very attached to it.ŽThe movie star was raised in Los Angeles by foster parents whose belief in Christian Science she never fully embraced, according to biographies and an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in New York called Becoming Jewish,Ž which examined the con-version of Monroe, as well as that of Elizabeth Taylor.Miller, the author of Death of a Salesman,Ž did not require Monroe to con-vert. The interest was hers, according to letters written after the movie stars death by Millers longtime rabbi, Robert Goldburg, who oversaw Monroes conversion. He officiated the couples Jewish wedding in the summer of 1956, several days after a civil ceremony at the Westchester County Court in White Plains, New York.In one letter, written in 1962 to the head of the Reform Movements American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati, the rabbi recalled how he had met Monroe at her Manhattan apartment and was struck by her personal sweetness and charm.Ž She had explained to him that she had no religious training other than some memories of a Fundamentalist Protestantism which she had long rejected,Ž Goldburg wrote. She spoke of being drawn to Judaism, he explained, because of Jewish people she knew, namely Miller, as well as the rationalism of Judaism „ its ethical and prophetic ideals and its concept of close family life,Ž as the rabbi explained.He gave her several books to read, including What is a Jew?Ž by Morris N. Kertzer. Marilyn was not an intellectual person but she was sincere in her desire to learn,Ž the rabbi recounted in the letter. It was also clear that her ability to concentrate over a long period of time was limited. However I did feel that she understood and accepted the basic prin-ciples of Judaism.ŽIndeed, the perceived mismatch between Monroe and Miller „ the centurys most famous sex symbol and its most piercing play-wright „ was a source of media intrigue. Americas best-known blonde moving picture star is now the darling of the left-wing intelligentsia,Ž the columnist Walter Winchell famously observed. Variety announced the June wedding with the headline, Egghead Weds Hourglass.ŽHer conversion came with a cost. Egypt reacted by banning her films, according to an account of her marriage to Miller, The Genius and the God-dess: Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe,Ž written by Jeffrey Meyers.The movie star described herself as a Jewish atheist,Ž according to Meyers. And after her divorce from Miller in 1961, she main-tained only a few trappings of the Jewish faith, includ-ing a mezuza „ a tiny box containing Hebrew texts „ on her door frame.After Monroes death from a drug overdose in August 1962, her first husband, Yankees star Joe DiMaggio, arranged for a funeral over which a Lutheran minister presided.She was not buried in a Jewish cemetery „ its true,Ž said Greenstein, who will be auctioning her prayer book next month. While she was alive, though, she thought of herself as a Jew.ŽRemaining tokens of the religious life of the actress also include a brass-plated musical menorah, featured in the exhibit at the Jewish Museum. It was a conversion gift from Millers mother, and stood on the celebritys mantle.Whether these ephemera provide evidence of her Jewish faith, they are pieces of American movie history. They are also clues into Monroes quest for an interior life, away from the screen that so delighted and tormented her.A di erent side of Marilyn Monroe Royalle is all smiles after she received a teddy bear from an Ohio woman.

** B8 Saturday, October 20, 2018 | The News HeraldARIES (March 21-April 19) „ Everyone knows when its not working, but few have the guts to call it out. You, on the other hand, have many options and very little time to waste on one thats clearly not going to work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) „ Youll show up early, stay late and do whatever it takes to make a project great. Is there a point in which the extra work actually makes things worse instead of better? Yes. Stay aware and youll see it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) „ The writing will be on the wall, for anyone who has those special sort of glasses that can see such things. Most people will walk right by. Much depends on how much you want to know. CANCER (June 22-July 22) „ Bounce the conversational ball. You want to know more about a person, but you also want this person to know you, and youll make sure things are balanced. All in all, great exchanges are in store. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) „ Heres a friendship test: If its important to you, its important to your friend. Its not a foolproof test. But generally speaking, if they dont take your side today, it will raise questions. If they do, it will raise grateful joy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) „ Theres a saying about throwing out the “ rst pancake of the batch, but life doesnt always follow this rule. Today, your “ rst try will turn out astoundingly beautiful results „ the equivalent of a pancake covergirl. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) „ To some extent time will be elastic to you, and youll be strong enough to bend and play with it, slow it with your mind, cling to it as it passes and hold on tight to the very best moments. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) „ Dont sell it if its already sold. Not only does it do no good, it could harm the deal. You know this and live this and youll teach the less experienced through your example. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) „ Sometimes the star of the evening is invisible „ the cook in the back of the restaurant, the one who made the room gleam before everyone got there, the originator of the playlist. Youll enjoy a key, quiet role tonight. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) „ Youre almost, but not quite, ready to give something up. As legendary comedy writer Robert Orben suggested, Most people would like to be delivered by temptation but would like it to keep in touch.Ž AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) „ You may know what makes you happy. You may also be wrong. Experiment with an open mind and youll “ nd out surprising things about yourself and this elusive thing called happiness. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) „ The best thing you can do for your future is to commit an anonymous, sel” ess act of generosity now. Your powers of observation are all the way turned up. Youll hatch the perfect plan.HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS DIVERSIONSTrivia FunŽ with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country.

Get the free JUST JUMBLE app • Follow us on Twitter @PlayJumble CTDHI NAPKL XIEPER LICCIN SUDOKUAnswer to yesterdays sudokuDEAR ABBY Girlfriend is convinced that partners parents dislike herDEAR ABBY: Recently something has come up in my life that has pushed the shaky relationship between my girlfriend, Linnay,Ž and my parents to the front burner. She insists they do not like her. Because of it, she rarely speaks more than a few sentences to them and dreads going to my house to visit them. I dont think my parents dislike Linnay, but they do seem hesitant to interact with her, involve her in things our family does, and they dont seem motivated to create a better relationship with her. Linnay has asked me to fixŽ the situation, but I feel the way to make their relationship better is for THEM to work it out. What should each of them do to make this happen? And what can I do to help? „ ANONYMOUS IN TEXASDEAR ANONYMOUS: This is not something your girlfriend can work out on her own. Ask your parents why they seem hesitant to interact with her, why they dont invite her to things the family does and why they seem less than eager to create a better relationship with her. Linnay may be shy, or she may have picked up on not-so-subtle signals your parents are sending that they dont approve of her.DEAR ABBY: Im 11. My parents arent in my life, so my grandparents are my guardians. Im thankful for all they do, but I am very scared because my grandfather is 85, and I know soon he is going to leave this world. So how do I accept that? „ IN NEED OF A PRAYERDEAR IN NEED OF A PRAYER: A wise person once told me that the way to ruin today is to spend it worrying about what mightŽ happen tomorrow. Many individuals a lot older than you make that mistake. Its clear that you love and appreciate your grandfather. Tell him that „ often. Hold a good thought and enjoy him for as long as the good Lord allows, because if your grandfather is in good health, he may last quite a while longer than you think.

[Photo by PATTI BLAKE/THE NEWS HERALD] ABOUT COVER THE By T ONY SIMMONS The News Herald PANAMA CITY BEACH Im writing from a laptop and using my phone for a hotspot because my home internet, like most of you out there are experiencing, is spotty at best. There will be time in the coming weeks to share stories of the storm and its aftermath. However, this week, as a special edi tion of the Entertainer goes out, I wanted to cede my space to friend and colleague Jason Hedden, chairman of the Depart ment of Visual and Performing Arts at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City. Jason has been preparing a cast for a pro duction of Much Ado About Nothing, which will not go on exactly as planned but may become much ado about catastrophe. Heres Jasons open letter to his cast and crew, post-Michael: The only thing more powerful than this storm is the LOVE and COMMU NITY and ART that will rise from the rubble. Its already begun. Dear cast and crew: I hope this finds you safe. I know many of you wont have the ability to read this for some time. I also know many of you have been think ing and wondering about the show. I also know that many of you still have much more urgent matters to deal with and please know your safety and basic needs are top priority, but I also wanted you to know that THE SHOW WILL GO ON. However... Maybe not with the full original cast/crew. Maybe not in the same venue. Maybe not with the same title. Maybe not in the same format. Maybe not with all the same words. ART has the ability to give expres sion to the things in life that are the most complex. The most simple. The most true. The most contradictory. My fave director, Anne Bogart, says for her the atre begins when there is a contradiction between what we are seeing and what we are hearing. For me, I want theatre to make me feel something. Make me learn some thing. Challenge me. Move me. Those things have been all too real this week. One of the reasons we tell stories is to remember. Theatre is storytelling. I think we have a tremendous op portunity here to help our community. A special kind of help that does not include chainsaws and relief trucks, though I am surprised how many theatre skills come in handy as part of disaster recovery. We have a different kind of work to do. We can tell our story. The story of our community. So, what should you be doing now while we are literally scat tered to the wind? First, take care of yourselves and your families. If you need help, dont be afraid to ask. If you can help, dont be afraid to help. Your other job is to see. Really see. Be with people. Share with them. Talk to them. LISTEN to them. Scavenge for hope. Be a vessel for love. Glean what you can from this interruption to your routine. Write. Sing. Draw. Photo. Dance. Journal. Glean. If you are like me, you have seen and done things in the last week that people would not believe if we put it on stage or screen. Record those images and feelings. Bottle the fear. Embrace the kindness. Express the pain. Release the tears. All the different kinds. Our show was scheduled to be fine. Forgettable even. BUT... The only thing stronger than Mi chael is the power of what is to come. I can see it. I can feel it. Be well. Hope to see you soon. The Show Will Go On Jason Hedden, head of the arts department at Gulf Coast State College, shared an inspirational letter with his cast and crew after Hurricane Michael. [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO]

By Jan Waddy 747-5072 | @PCNHJanWaddy PANAMA CITY On Oct. 10, Just the Cook owner Ernie Halls livelihood washed under the Hathaway Bridge exactly one week after he celebrated the reopening of his 48-foot twostory floating restaurant on St. Andrew Bay. So, what did Hall do the day after Just The Cook was completely destroyed? He teamed up with Bay Ice Cream and Slapsticks to put together a Soup Kitchen to help feed the community he now calls home. I cant just sit down; it drives me crazy to do nothing and now that we have nothing, its just not in me not to help, Hall said. I cant sit around and wait for FEMA or the city, and then decide what were going to do. We have to give back. Of course we want to rebuild, but now were at ground zero. Chicken wings, French fries and hot dogs all based on what we can get in were be ing served Oct. 18 at Slapsticks, 1508 Calhoun Ave., behind the bowling alley in St. Andrews. Its a concerted effort, Hall wrote, giving credit to Bay Ice Creams Jim Purcell (who also has worked at Just the Cook), Slapsticks owners Phil and Liz Mercer and his staff, DiBacco wines Quinn DiBacco, and the owners at Bowlarama Lanes. Were trying to keep it going as long as I can cook food until people can get on their feet based on the supply of the food. Today Im in Dothan picking up mozzarella and pepperoni for Dovalinas Wood-Fired Pizza. (Dovalinas owners Guillermo and Danielle Dovalina have been feeding the community in Fountain.) Carla Lovett, executive di rector of Palm Bay Prep Acad emy, and her husband, David, contacted Hall and donated food from the school that also was prepared at Slapsticks. Halls sister, Billie Jean Druker, set up a Just the Cook Relief on Facebook. On Oct. 18, $6,534 had been raised of the $20,000 goal. Were crushed, Hall admit ted. In the past weve had some kind of structure left. He, his wife, Debra, and their daughter, Gianna had just moved to a different condo, which took on a lot of rainwater, and Purcells home took a direct hit from a tree and is unlivable. Everybody needs help, and the easiest thing for Just the Cook to do is cook, Hall said. I can use my business popularity to get supplies, make awareness. This isnt the first time Hall has been faced with adversity. His original Just the Cook boat, a 25-foot Bennington, sank Au gust 2015 at the St. Andrews Marina. In February 2016, Hall opened Just the Cook 2.0, and about six months ago he served his food out of Sizzle Dog in St. Andrews while looking for a new location.
