Bond set at $75,000 for accused Grand Ridge teacher


McDaniel charged
with lewd and
lascivious battery
From staff reports

Bond has been set at
$75,000 for a local teacher.
accused of committing a
sex offense against a mi-


nor. Charged





McDaniel between the
ages of 12
and 16,32-year-old Patrick
Kyle McDaniel made his


first appearance in court
Friday morning.
The judge also imposed
conditions that he have
no contact with the victim
or that individual's famil}.
and also banned him from
going to a specific school.
McDaniel was arrested
on the-charge at the close
of the school day on Thurs-


day, Nov. 14. In a press re-
lease about his arrest, the
Jackson County Sheriff's
Office reported that an
*investigation began after
school officials provide
information concerning
possible allegations of an
inappropriate relationship
between a student and a
teacher in the district. Of-


ficials eventually charged
McDaniel in the case.
According to the narra-
tive complaint filed against
McDaniel, the sexual en-
counters allegedly oc-
curred over a three month
period and that material
obtained from McDaniel's
phone indicated evidence
of a relationship between


the two.
The victim, officials said,
had been a former student
of McDaniel's at Grand
Ridge Middle School but
officials said the alleged
sexual misconduct did not
occur during the time the
victim was his student.
McDaniel is listed -as a
resident of Marianna.

CityofAlfordputting on a big Christmas


BY ELIZABETH TIPTON
Special to the Floridan
If you pause for a moment in
Alford, you. can hear the faint
inkling of holiday bells as town
officials, Alford Voluteer Fire
Department and a small group
of dedicated volunteers, known
as the Alford Elves, prepare for
the upcoming Christmas Sea-
son. These groups, remember-
ing a time wheri the parade and
Santa's visit was a highlight of the
year, formed an alliance to en-
sure that the residents of Alford
and the surrounding areas have
a wonderful holiday experience.
To officially mark the begin-
ning of tie season, a community
tree lighting is planned for Dec.
3, at 6:30 p.m. on the front lawn
of the town hall. All are invited
to attend, and enjoy the ceremo-
ny along with the reading of the
Christmas story byAlford Baptist
Church's Rev. Bob Johnson and


its choir, directed by Reva Reyn-
olds, along with refreshments.
Also on the agenda is the an-
nouncement; of Mrs. R.A.;- (Ar-
della) Griffin as grand marshal
of the parade, She was unani-
mously selected by the group
of volunteers. She is a lifelong
resident of Alford and was mar-
ried to the late R.A. Griffin for 70
years. She has always been in-
volved in thie community, previ-
ously serving as a chaplain of the
former Alford Ladies Auxiliary
and officer of many activities at
,Alford Assembly of God Church.
Of many memories, she fondly
recalls a time when more than
100 entries participated in the
annual Christmas parade to the
delight of all.
This year's parade will be Dec.
7. Line-up is 10 a.m. on Garden-
view Road with a starting time
of 11 a.m. For the first time in
more than 10 years, the parade


will feature a band. Cottondale
High School's "Pride of Cotton-
dale" will. provide much spirit
and excitement. The commu-
nity is greadv; anticipating the
band's appearance this year.'
There is no entry fee; however,
toy and monetary donations for
the Jackson County Christmas
Fund can be delivered to town
hall or the AVFD during normal
business hours. Cash prizes will
be awarded after the parade at
Alford's first Holly-Day Festival
at the community center and
ballpark-
Some of the scheduled enter-
tainment at the festival will be a
bouncy house, inflatable slide,
face painting, model train ex-
hibit, a child ID kit station, and
several nonprofit exhibits, such
as the Jackson County Sheriff
and Fire Departments, Chipola
Baptist Association, Partner for.
Pets, Pink Heals Jackson Coun-


ty,, and others. And no Christ-
mas festival would be complete
without a chance to speak with
Santa. Elves will be on. hand
to assist young and old alike in
,,their quest to whisper' wishes
in his ear. All the activities and
heavy refreshments will be free
of charge... The support of the
Alford Recreation Association,
civic and business groups, Main
Street Marianna and others has
made this possible..
Those interested in donating,
volunteering and/or participat-
ing are encouraged to contact
Silvestra Tharp, Town Clerk, at
850-579-4684 or townofalford@
embarqmafl.com. All parade
entries must be received by Dec.
2.
The excitement .grows with
each passing day; so, mark your
calendar, bring a lawn chair,
your Christmas spirit and enjoy
the 2013 Christmas in Alford.

Even today, haste still makes waste


Making quick deci-
sions, when it's
not a life or death
situation, can lead to
years and even a lifetime
of regret. When we look
at our fast-paced world
it seems that we live in a
"hurry up" environment.
Even many of our small
rural cities don't seem to
be as laid back as they did
in the past. There's always
a special item to purchase
or a special event taking
place that we must hurry
and commit to, before a
certain exploration date.
The business world
thrives on convincing the
public of how important
it is to make a decision
"now." In many instances,
some of those same
marketing proposals come
back around months -
down the road. Through-
out history many people
have confessed that they


made a mistake in acting
too quickly.
W s When used
properly,
the gift God
has given us
the abil-
ity'to make
IN t choices
Thoms can be a
Vincent major help
MwUphY in how we
live our lives.
With our world in such
an unpredictable state as
it is today, it's important
to teach our children the
value of making smart de-
cisions before they act. In
fact, parents or guardians,
why not show them by
example the importance
of thinkingg before taking
action?"
All of us are' human, and.
will make mistakes as long
as we live, but shouldn't
we learn from our mis-
takes to think through'


things more thoroughly, so
we will make fewer errors?
Our penal institutions are
loaded with people who
based their actions on
someone else's decisions
and actions.
There's a good reason
many of our children are
part of a single parent
household. Hasty sexual
activities and unwise deci-
sions have led to many
pregnancies. Many of our
young women and men
never thought they would
be in a situation where
they would be trying to
survive as a single mom
or, in some cases, single
dad. Often the thought of
pleasing someone else,
even though it.could
lead to an unwanted
lifestyle, takes preference
over making smart, wise
decisions.
Many adults, even some
of our senior citizens,


continue to be persuaded
by others to make "quick"
terrible decisions. Age
doesn't always bring wis-
dom to some folks. Senior
citizens and the elderly
need to take precautions
and realize there are many
con artist in our world
trying to confiscate their
savings and property.
Be careful not to make
"quick decisions." The
reason many people are
in debt is because they
were so impressed initially
with a product or oppor-
tunity, that instead of
doing research or talking
to someone more knowl-
edgeable, they make a
quick decision that they
soon regret. Take advan-
tage of the internet, make
inquiries and check things
out.
Remember that old say-
ing "haste makes waste" is
still-true in many cases.

Sinatras Very Good Year' just not an easy one


. "But now the days grow
short... I'm in the autumn
of the year.
And now I think of my
life as vintage wine
from fine old kegs.. .from
the brim to the dregs.
And it poured sweet and
clear... It was a very good
year." "It WasA Very Good
Year" by Frank Sinatra
It's been a good year
for equities. But it's also
been a complicated year,
one which called for the
consideration of a tactical
asset allocation strat-
egy. Tactical asset alloca-
tion means active asset
management, rather than
"buy and hold." It can also
mean placing more weight


on market sectors that are
expected to outperform
a market
index, given

The sequester ensued
in early spring. When


Congress voted recently
to end the government
shutdown and avoid
debt default, the cuts
that began on March 1st
were extended through
mid-January of 2014. In a
state like Florida, where
so many government and
private jobs and contracts
are connected to the
defense budget, the exten-
sion of the sequester cuts
has ominous economic
overtones.
"The Bipartisan Policy
Center suggested that
if the cuts continue, the
economic impact on the
defense industry will be
double in 2014 what it was
in 2013," writes Jennifer


Liberto in CNN Money.
com. "The full brunt of
the cuts hasn't hit, and if
we go down the sequester
path for too long, we won't
be able to reverse the
devastating impacts."
So as we greet the New
Year, we will suffer anoth-
er possible government
shutdown debate and pos-
sibly another extension of
the Sequester Act.
With the sequester in full
swing in mid-June, Chair-
man Bernanke floated the
idea of scaling back on
quantitative easing within
the next six months.
Domestic markets plum-
meted for 48 hours, taking
global markets with them.


Within a few days, Ber-
nanke backpedalled some,
and markets returned to
"normal".
Around Halloween
we faced the harrowing
prospect that the U.S.
would default on its debts
and throw domestic
and global markets into
a terrible tailspin. Our
government was shut
down for over two weeks
during this recent debt
ceiling debate. And inves-
tors were backed into a
corner, forced to decide if
their holdings were safe,
or if they needed to take
action. At the least, many
investorsxreallocated,
emphasizing downside


protection against poten-
tial market meltdown.
Somehow, markets
avoided the historical,
major October downturns
that have plagued inves-
tors. So ultimately, to date,
it has been a good year for
equities, just not an easy
one.

Two homes demolished after
sinkhole opens up
DUNEDIN -Demolition is un-
derway on two homes damaged by a
sinkhole that opened under a Pinellas
County neighborhoodA
The sinkhole was discovered early
Thursday at a home owned by Michael
Dupre and quickly spread to a neigh-
boring home. Residents from five other
homes were evacuated as the massive
sinkhole spread throughout the dav.


Officials say crews worked through
the night to stabilize the hole, which
eventually measured to about 90 feet
in diameter. On Friday morning, more
crews began the demolition process.
Some debris was removed from the
homes and will be taken to another
site, where homeowners may be able to
recover some items.
Once the homes are demolished,
crews will bring dirt to fill in the hole.

Smith demonstrated
many beautiful ways to
decorate for the Christmas

State on pace for record tourism


The Associated Press

TAMPA Florida is on
pace to have a record year
for tourism, Gov. Rick Scott
said Friday.
About 22.9 million visi-
tors came to Florida in
the third quarter of 2013,
which is an increase of 1.7
percent over the same pe-
riod in 2012,
Gov. Rick Scott an-
nounced the tourism num-
bers during a news confer-
ence at Busch Gardens and
said his goal is for the state
to reach 100 million visi-
tors. Scott, who is running
for re-election, tied the rise
in tourism to job creation.
"Tourism creates a whole
bunch of jobs in our state,"
said Scott. adding that for
ever) 85 visitors, one job is
created.
Scott, who was joined by
officials from Visit Florida
and Visit Tampa Bay-the
state and region's tourism
marketing groups said

Our Opinion

Better safe than sorry

L ast week, we heard from a Marianna resident who
wanted to warn the people of Jackson County
about a potential scam. She had received a call
from someone claiming to work for Microsoft and!said
they needed her to turn on her computer and stay on
the phone while they "got rid of a virus.",,
The request didn't sit well with her; she made an ex-
cuse and.got off the phone, then called Microsoft; The,
computer giant told her it was a scam, and commended
her for ending the call.
She wanted to let others to knowwhat had happened
to her, and that it could happen to them. The' imposter
likely wanted an opportunity to hack into'her comput-
er; whatever they-were up to was likely no good.`
It's a good opportunity to revisit some general rules of
thumb with regard to potential scams.
Legitimate companies will not contact individuals
and ask for sensitive information such as credit card or
bank account numbers or usemames- and passwords
for computer accounts. If contacted and asked for such
information, do not share it. Hang up. get a phone -
number from the operator or directory assistance and
contact the company to report the incident.
The same applies to email. Scammers often create
documents and websites that look identical to those of
companies they're misrepresenting. Remember, legiti-
mate companies won't ask for sensitive information.
.Above all else, if it sounds too good to be true, it prob-
ably is. Don't be afraid to check it out.
We applaud Linne Dodds for being alert, and for shar-
ing her concerns with her Jackson County neighbors.
She may well have sav'ed someone from becoming a
victim.

Drop efforts to block


airline merger

T he outcry from the government's illr-conceived
intrusion into the planned merger of American
Airlines and US Airways appears to.be getting
through to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.
Amid protests by pilots, flight attendants and the
'mayors of Miami and six other cities affected by the
merger, Holder is now negotiating an end to a lawsuit
the Justice Department filed in August to blockthe $11
billion merger. Bondi was one of several state attorneys
general to join the suit.
We encourage her to find a resolution that works for
Florida and to withdraw her support for the suit.
Despite approving several other airline mergers, the
federal government sued over the American and US
Airways merger, claiming it would lead to less competi-
tion and higher fares.
But in a letter to Holder, the mayors wrote, "we know
the airline industry creates jobs, supports local busi-
ness, attracts new business, and promotes infrastruc-
ture.growth."
The flight attendants and pilots fear the consequenc-.
es if the merger is blocked, and the affected airlines
are unable to compete with carriers made stronger by
mergers the government allowed.
Thelustice Department approved the mergers of
-Delta Air Lines and Northwest. United and Continen-
tal, and Southwest and Air Tran....
American Airlines filed for bankruptcy in 2011, and
a reorganization plan approved by a federal judge
included the merger with US Airways. The proposed
merger has the blessing of creditors and the affected
labor groups.
The airlines argue the merger will result in more
domestic and international flights and keep them com-
petitive with other larger carriers.
There is no disputing that consumers pay more today
than before the spate of airline mergers. But the alter-
native is to further limit competition by keeping the'
two airlines at a disadvantage. The merger will create a
competitor with other large airlines, and allow the free
market to work.
Holder is reportedly talking to the airlines about a
settlement that will assure there is a competitive bal-
ance at a few key'ai reports. ; ,
Considering the jobs that might be lost, the arbitrary
nawure of the suit and the long odds of winning at trial,
he should ground the lawsuit and cut a deal.

CBS owes viewers


BY COKIE ROBERTS
AND STEVEN V. ROBERTS
,CBS correspondent,.,
Lara Logan apolo-
gized on "60 Min-
utes" last Sunday for that
program's deeply flawed
account of howfour'-
Americans were killed at'
a diplomatic compound
in Benghazi. It turned out
that their primary source,
a government contractor
named D~ylan Davies, Was
.never at the compounds
and lied repeated4y.about
his role in the whole tragic
episode.
The program "had been
misled" by Davies and "we
are very sorry" about put-
tinghim on the air, Logan
said. "The most important
thing to every person at
'60 Minutes' is the truth.
And the truth is, we made
a mistake.",,
The truth is "60 Min-
utes" made many
mistakes, not just one..
The truth is they badly

Letter to the Editor

Play is centerpiece of preschool experience


Myname is jeanne
Hitchcok; I am the owner
of Along the Way Early
Education Centers in
Jackson County. I wanted
to share with others the
importance ofVPK (Vol-
untary Prekindergatten)
and the preschool experi-
ence.
First, let me state that
.It's OK to play in VPK." A
'child's play-is their work.
We use a research-based
'curriculum called Beyond
Centers and Circle Time
that respects play as a
child's foundation.


In today's society, young
children are being pulled
into'a world of comput-
ers and multimedia.
While that might be the
trend of today, it is'crucial
that children get back to
basics, such as blocks.
Did you know that blocks
teach a variety of topics?
Blocks encourage vocab-
ulary words such as short,
long, castle structural
integrity, angles, founda-
tion, moat,, attic and so
many more. Children..
'learn math through block
play; shapes, length, frac-


tions, as well as special
relationships. By arrang-
ing blocks and other
items by similar traits
children learn to classify,
sort and think about how
things go together.
They learn about clas-
sification skills. There are
19 observational stages
to block play, everything
from vertical linear ar-
rangements (stacking) to
complex configurations
(building that includes
landmarks, routes and
sense of scale) all of
these stages can be used


to determine where a
child is developmentally.
When teachers' scaffold
the play and encourage
child to build upon their
ideas it also incorporates
the Florida Early Learn-
ing and Developmental
Standards. Childhood
goes by way too fast it is,
allow children to play and
by doing this not only will
they learn to explore the
world around them they
will be able to look back
and smile.

NASAnS newest Mars flyer will explore atmosphere


The Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL -
NASA hopes its newest
Mars spacecraft lives up to
its know-it-all name.
- The robotic explorer
called Maven is due to blast
off Monday on a 10-month
journey to the red planet.
There, it will orbit Mars
and. study the atmosphere
to try to understand how
the planet morphed from
warm and wet to cold and
dry.
'A maven is a trusted
expert," noted NASA's
space science chief, John
Grunsfeld.i Maven will help
scientists "build .a story of
the Mars atmosphere and
.help future human explor-
ers who journey to Mars."


The $671 million miss
sion is NASA's 21st crack
at Earth's most enticing
neighbor, coming on the
heels of the Curiosity rovet,
still. rolling strong a year
after its grand Martian
arrival.
When Maven reaches
Mars next September, it
will join three functioning
spacecraft, two U.S. and
one European. An Indian
orbiter also will be arriving
about the same time. Ma-
ven will be the 10th orbiter
to be launched to Mars by
NASA
"No other planet, other
than perhaps Earth, has
held the attention of peo-
ple around the world than
- Mars," Grunsfeld said.
Early Mars had an at-


mosphere thick enough
to hold water and moist
clouds, said chief investi-
gator Bruce Jakosky of the
University of Colorado's
Laboratory for Atmo-
spheric and Space' Physics
in Boulder. Indeed, water
flowed once upon a time
on Mars, and microbial life
might have existed.
"But somehow that atmo-
sphere changed over time
to the cold,, dry environ-'
ment that we see today," Ja-
kosky said. "What we don't
know is what the driver of
that change has been."
Maven short for Mars
Atmosphere and Volatile
Evolution, with a capital N
in EvolutioN is the first
spacecraft devoted entirely
to studying Mars' upper at-


mosphere. India's orbiter
will also study the atmo-
sphere but go a step fur-
ther, seeking out methane,
a possible indicator of life.
Maven holds eight scien-
tific instruments to mea-
sure the upper atmosphere
for an entire Earth year
- half a Martian year. The
boxy, solar-winged craft -
as long as a school bus and
as hefty as a 5,400-pound
SUV will dip as low as
78 miles above the surface
for atmospheric sampling,
and its orbit will stretch as
high as 3,864 miles.
Understanding the make-
up and dynamics of Mars'
present' atmosphere will
help guide humans more
safely to the planet's sur-
face, Jakosky said.

The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE -When
Melissa Corbett picks up
her guitar to play, she
sometimes doesn't know
what chords she's using.
It's as if God places her
fingers where they need
to go, she says.
Corbett, a fifth-grade
teacher at the Healthy
Learning Academy char-
ter school, uses that gift
to help her students
learn and retain., com-
plicated grammar rules
with ease.
To date, she has written
about 50 songs'designed
to help children remem-
ber everything from
nouns to idioms to sub-
ordinating conjunctions.
'. And seeing the success
students have had with
her educational jingles,
Corbett and her husband
launched a website and
aYouThbe channel.
"I can be teaching my
class all day, but when
I'm sleeping, I can be
'helping someone on the
other side of the world,"
Corberttsaid.
Corbett has 'taught
since the early 1990s -
although she took sev-
eral years off from teach-
ing to raise a family. She
has spent most of her
career teaching first
grade.
But two years ago when
she was looking for a
new job, Corbett came
across Healthy Learning.
Academy's advertise-
ment: Searching for a
teacher who isn't afraid
to sing and dance with
students. *
"And I thought, 'Well, I
can do that,' "she'said.
Corbett brought her
guitar to her interview
with HLA and sang a
song about short vowel
*sounds to principal Anni
Egan.
"And I said, 'I'm throw-
ing away every other ap-
plication,"'" Egan said.
"'You've 'got the job."'
Corbett bought a
cheap Yamaha guitar
and a book of chords in
the mid-1990s, when
she was just starting out
teaching. 'She knew how
to play the flute, but she
wanted to be able to play
an instrument and sing
at the same time for her

Corbett started teach-
ing a class of third- and
fourth-graders in the
fall of 2011. It was the
first time she had taught
third grade since 1994,
she said, and looking at
her book of standards
- everything her stu-
dents would be required
to know for standardized
tests she wondered
how she could possibly
get them to retain it all.
'So, she started writing
songs.
Basic parts of speech,
comprehension and
writing skills, punctua-
tion, metaphors, simile,
hyperbole and a few
songs about math
"Just all of it," she said.
And-they're not dinky

ther. Corbetis grammar

songs,wvith multiplevers-
es, a chorus and catchy
chord progressions.
Soon, and nearly by ac-
cident, Corbett said she
had amassed 50 songs.
She even took requests
from other teachers at
HLA, she said.
-Her husband, Cullen
'Corbett, said he once
went into the bank and
by the time he came out,
his wife had written an
entire song.
"It's a unique talent,"
said Melissa Corbeti,
who has had a hearing
impairment since child-
hood. "I can't explain
where it happens or why
it happens."
Over the summer, she
and her husband start-
ed uploading videos to
YouTube and building
a website at grammar-
songs.com.
Grammarsongs.com is
still under construction,
but Cullen Corbett said,
he hopes to start charg-
ing for content in Janu-
ary. He said subscrip-
tions wouldn't cost more
than $4.99 a month, and
the Corbetts want to of-.
fer free subscriptions to
some teachers.
But the lessons are free
to Corbett's students,
who settled onto the
floor quickly on a recent
morning to sing some
songs about grammar..

John: E Kennedy driving
through in his black con-
vertible limousine.
His trip to Florida, the last
before his assassination 50
years ago, is remembered
for its joy and optimism.
People who saw him that
day saw their own wishes
and dreams in him, from
civil rights to space explo-
ration. They didn't know it
then, but their view of the
nation would be .irrepara-
bly changed just days later
when the gunshots struck
Kennedy's motorcade in
Dallas. It was, in a way, one
of the nation's last innocent
memories of its president.
"I marvel at the inno-
cence of the pictures that
we see in Tampa," said Ger-
ald Posner, a Nliami Beach-
based author of "Case
Closed," a book about the
Kennedy assassination.
"It was a different era, a
dime that will never likely
be repeated in American
politics. The ability to go
through a major American
city, a 26-mile motorcade,
an open car, interacting
with thousands of people
along the way. It's a slice of
history that unfortunately
belongs to a more inno-
cent time."
At times, Kennedy stood
in the back of the car, wav-
ing and smiling at those in
Tampa.
"Everyone thought he
looked right at them and
smiled right at them,"
said Tony Zappone, who

first scheduled passenger airplane flight.


was 16 then and snapped
photos for his high school
yearbook.
In Florida, people re-
membered Kennedy's
graciousness toward the
crowds. And his accent
and good looks.
"He had a head of beauti-
ful chestnut hair," recalled
74-year-old Bud Fultz, who
saw Kennedy at the Miami
airport. "He enthralled the
crbwd. He seemed to glis-
ten. Everything about him
was inspiring."
To capture those reac-
tions, a Tampa filmmaker
has made a documentary
about Kennedy's visit here.
It was released this month.
"I didn't realize how vis-
ceral, how emotional -of
a topic it was," said Lynn
Martin Dingfelder, the
producer of"JFK in Tampa:
the 50th Anniversary." "I
had grown people crying
during the interviews."
The film coincides with
an exhibit at the Tampa
Bay History Center, which
features several of Zap-
pone's photos. a video of
a speech in Tampa and
other memorabilia. A cer-
emony to commemorate


the 50th anniversary of his
visit will be held in Tampa
on Monday.
Kennedy's trip to Florida
has become a footnote to
history.
On Nov,, 15, he flew
from New York'City to the
family's compound in
Palm Beach. A day .later,
he traveled to Cape Ca-
naveral, where he visited-
the Saturn Missile Control'
Center at what is now the
Kennedy Space Center. He
was shown an early Saturn
rocket, similar to the ones
that would take Americans
to the moon before the end
of the 1960s-just as Ken-
nedy had sowed.
He returned to Palm
Beach, stayed the follow-
ing night there and on the
morning of the 18th, he
flew to MacDill Air Force
Base in Tampa.
Kennedy then went to
Al Lopez Field and gave a
speech commemorating
the 50th anniversary of the
first scheduled passenger
airplane (light. He spoke
of plans for people to "Ay
at five times the speed of
sound" before the end of
century.

Conrads named 2013


Outstanding Farm Family


BYDOUG MAYO
Jackson County Extension Director

The Bill and Donna Con-
rad family was named
Outstanding Farm Fam-
ily at this year's Farm City
Day Breakfast. The Con-
.rad family's tradition of
farming in Jackson Coun-
ty, spans more than 120
years, when their ances-
tors moved to the Bascom
area.
Bill Conrad is a fourth
generation, Jackson Coun-
ty farmer. His German
pioneer family, the Coon-
rods moved to the area in
the late 1800s. Sometime
aftqr the turn of the 20th
Centuty, the'. Coonrods
became the Conrads.
Just like the others before
him, Bill learned the art of
farming from his father,
and is passing the farming
heritage on to his
children.
Conrad started farming
on his own in 1980, when
he left high school and
bought his first 22 acres of
land. He continued help-
ing his father farm, farmed
his own land and some

JaC i''rI C runtr-, E-I j iuro Lirt- ifr

Mike Simonson was
named the 2013 Tree Farm-
er of the Near at Fridays
Farm City Day Breakfast.
- He was bonm and raised
in Panama City-and Lyn
Haven, in Bay County. He
is a state certified building
contractor and owner/op-
erator of Simonson Con-
struction. Nlike has. been
married to his wife Denise
for 34 years, and they have
two adult sons, Phillip and
Daniel. -
Mike purchased his -
first 40 acre tract of land
Ain southwestern lackson
County in 1990. His prop-
erty was primarily a sand
hill habitat consisting ,of
gentle rolling terrain on
-deep, well drained sands.
Originally, the timber on
the property consisted of
a mix of volunteer long leaf
- pine and hardwood trees.
Mike's primary interest in,,
the property was for recre--
ational purposes.
Mike decided he wanted
to make improvements to
his land, so he contacted
theJacksonCountyForester
for advice. He was looking
for ideas that would benefit
both the native wildlife, but
also provide future income
from timber production.
Mike decided it was time to
start over, so he harvested
the native timber from the
40 acres, and signed up for
- the Florida Forest Stew-
ardship Program, which
provided cost-share incen-
tives to land owners who
initiated. a land manage-
ment plan. With the help
of the program funds, Mike
was able to establish a long
leaf pine plantation. He
has controlled competing
hardwoods and vegetation
with a 3-4 year rotation of
prescribed burning of the
property. Mike's primary
objectives consisted- of
pine timber production,
enhancement of aesthetic
and recreational values,
and enhancement of
habitat for wildlife species
which included deer, wild
turkey, gopher tortoises,
and quail.
This year, Mike updated
his original management
plan. His primary objec-


rented land, while doing
odd jobs for other, farms
in the area. In 1985, Con-
rad was able to buy out his
father and take over the
family operation, and has
been farming in Jackson
County ever since.
In 1987, he married the
love of his life, Donna.
After marriage, Conrad
worked full time in the
farm supply business, and
farmed his land nights and
weekends. Afteafour years,
he came to the realization
that you can't stay sane
working two full-time jobs.
So, he gave up the steady
income job for the job he
loved, farming. -
Conrad has grown many
crops, but is. is always
looking for new ideas, al-
ternative crops and niche
markets.. ..
While he has been farm-
ingfor33years,he*mightbe
best known for his custom
grain combine harvest-
ing service. Conrad has
grown peanuts, soybeans,
corn, wheat, triticaJe. hogs
and pine trees. He also
experimented with numer-
ous alternative crops such


as velvetbeans, alfalfa, and
even hydroponic straw-
berries. In recent years,
Conrad got into the horse
hay business, first-selling
square baled alfalfa, and
nowperennial peanut hay.
When asked about the
future, Bill hopes to ex-
pand his irrigated acres,
switch over to electric ir-
rigation -pumps, and add
corn and alfalfa back in to
his crop rotation.
Bill has been married to
Donna for 26 years, and
they have five children:
B.J., 23; Rachael-,21; Jo-
seph, 18; Elijah, 16; and
Heidi, 14. B.J. is married,
and has started his own
farming operation. Ra-
chael helped on the farm
for many years, but is now
attending Baptist College
of Florida. Joseph, Elijah,
and Heidi still help Bill
with the grain harvest-
ing service and the family
farming operation.
The Outstanding Farm
Family is selected each
year by a committee
of past winners for the
Jackson County Farm
Bureau.

tives have remained. the
same, however wildlife
habitat enhancement is
now the top priority, and
timber production is sec-
ondary. When Mike first
purchased the property, he
was lucky to occasionally-
spot a deer or turkey. Since
implementing the wildlife
enhancement practices,
it is now common to see
large groups of deer, turkey,
and quail on the property.
Mike has also watched the,
population of gopher tor-
toises grow from one or
two burrows to approxi-
mately 50. He attributes
much of this success to the
prescribed burning, -.and
mechanical brush control
that has greatly improved
the habitat.
The farm also has grown0
from the original 40 acre
track to a total of 350 ad-
joining acres. Approxi-
mately 280 acres of the
farm now has been estab-
lished in long leaf pines
ranging in age from 1 to 18
years old." Twenty acres of


the land is kept in pasture
and almost 10 acres consist
of wildlife food plots that
serve as fire breaks. Almost
30 acres consist of wetlands
and natural wood lots. The
remaining 10 acres is cur-
- rently undergoing site
preparation so that long
leaf pines can be planted in
the winter of 2015.
Although it has been a
lot- of, work, many days
and long hours, Mike takes
great pride in wvAhat he has
accomplished. The land
management changes
would not have been pos-
sible without -the. help and
guidance of local county
foresters like Barry Staf-,
ford, and the various cost
share programs offered to
land owners by the Florida
Division of Forestry. What
started as a weekend get-a-
way spot is now a farm the
family takes great pride in!
The Tree Farmer of the
Year is selected each year
by the Florida Forest Ser-
vice's County Forester, Bar-
ry Stafford.

Jeff Pittman was named
2013 Cattleman of the
Year. He operates J&G
Farms headquartered* in
- the Lovedale Commu-
nity, but with leased land
between the Chipola and
the Apalachicola Rivers
in Jackson. and Calhoun
Counties. Pittman's diver-
sified farming operation
consists .of about 7,500
acres of owned and leased
farms utilized for cotton,
peanut, corn, cattle, and
hay production. Jeff is the
fourth generation of Pit'
tmans to farm in Jackson
County.
Beef cattle have always
been part of the family's
long history of diversified
farming. Jeff remembers
hfis grandfather having
cattle and feeding out
steers to sell, for freezer
beef. His father, Mil-
ton grazed 2,000 head of
sticker cattle annually,
adding several hundred
pounds of weight and
then reselling them. So
it was only natural for Jeff
to add cattle to his farm-
ing operation. Jeff feels
cattle work well in a mod-
ern, diversified farming
operation. He can utilize
cotton, peanut and corn
crop residues to reduce
his cattle feed costs. Jeff
also utilizes the cattle to
harvest the bahia and
cover crop grains, used in
rotation with the warm
season crops on his head-
quarters farm.
In 1998, he bought 175
head of older cattle from
four herds that included'
the Bar L Ranch. From
these older, proven cows
he raised some high qual-
ity replacement heifers
that became the base for

sistent herd. Today his

bred to Angus bulls. Three
years ago Jeff bought the
top performing Angus bull
,at the Florida Bull Test, to
improve the performance
of his heard. His efforts
are starting to pay off, as
his calves generally sell


very well at the Semi-
nple Livestock Market in
Donaldsonville.

Bishop is Corn Farmer of the Year

Jackson County Extensio n Dirctor


Craig Bishop has a dif-
ferent story than many
traditional farmers, since
he was not raised on a
farm. Craig attended
Grand Ridge High School,
graduatedin. 1985 and at-
tended Chipola College
where he received an A.A.
degree in business.
Itwas not until 1992 that
he began his farming op-
eration. His first year of
farming, he grew 17 acres
of peanuts on halves with
another local farmer. The
next year he increased his
acreage and- grew cotton
and peanuts.
Every year he was able
to double his acreage un-
til he was farming about
2,500 acres. Currently,
Bishop Farms man-
ages 6,000 acres of pea-
nuts, cotton, 'corn, and
soybeans.
Craig grew 800 acres of
corn this year with great
success. His official top
yield was 256 bushels per
acre from the Pioneer
2023HR' hybrid variety,
but he, also made excel-
lent yields with Dekalb
6469 and 6209.` Craig av-
eraged 237 bushels per
acre across all 800 acres.

corn in 2008 when Tropi-
cal Storm Fay was coming
and'he had-no way to har-
vest the corn or any place
to store it. Almost his en-
tire crop was laid-down by
the storm.
He realized at that
point that if he was go-
ing to grow corn he would
need his own combine
and grain bins. This year,
Bishop picked corn with
his own combine, added
a grain drying and storing
infrastructure that will,
dry 1,200 bushels of corn
per hour, and store up to
105,000 bushels.


Craig's credits new tech-
nology and innovation for
the increase in modern
corn yields. These inno-
vations include, new high -;'
yielding varieties, vari-
able rate application' of'
fertilizers, and twin row
planting. Craig credits his
personal success this year
as "a blessing from the
Good Lord."

Bar L Ranch named Hay


Farmers of the Year


BY DOUG MAYO
Jackson County Extension Director

The Bar L crew has been
named Hay Farmers of the
Year. The team produces
their own Bermudagrass
hay and round bale silagel
(baleage), which is quite an
undertaking, considering
they feed 50 bales of hay
per day all winter.
Frustrated with weather.
- nd.Iha quality variation,
Herman switched to put-
ting up baleage, or round
bale silage during the sum-
mer months. They put-up
dry hay in the fall and store
it in barns, or wrap wet
baleage and store in feed-
ing stations in the summer:
all at optimum 'maturity
and quality.
This year Herman Lara-
more sent in five forage
samples for quality testing
on behalf of Bar L Ranch.
The highest quality sample
was from Tifton 85 bermu-

Burned jewelry


found in Everglades

The Associated Press

MIAMI -A partly melt-
ed gold pendant found in
the Everglades near the
crash sites of two com-
mercial airplanes remains
unclaimed.
Itwas found byMarkRu-
binstein of Coral Springs
during Florida's official
Burmese python hunt
last winter. He was hunt-
ing in a remote, swampy
area west of Miami where
two planes went down:
Eastern Flight 401 in 1972
and Valujet Flight 592 in
1996.
Rubinstein hoped to
return the penny-sized
pendant with diamonds
circling across of sap-
phires to the family of one
of the crash victims.
However, the executive
director of the National
Air Disaster Alliance/
Foundation said, Thurs-
day that none of the
families who lost loved
ones aboard the Valujet
flight have claimed the
piece. The grassroots air

Builder claims drilling rights


The Associated Press

BRANDON -When Mal-
lory and Zach Sinclair were
looking for their first home,
they swooned over a new
townhouse in the Brandon
subdivision, of Whispering
Oaks.With well-manicured
lawns, it looked fresh and
untouched, with streets
bearing pastoral names
like Spring Flowers and
Summer Clouds.
But when the young par-
ents cracked open their
closing papers, they no-
ticed an alarming clause.
Their home builder had
signed away the rights
to the land beneath their
home to its own energy
company. It now had free
rein deep below the surface
to drill, mine or explore.
Selling underground


mineral rights has long
been big business in the
oil- and gas-rich boom-
towns of Texas, North Da-
kota and beyond.
A Tampa-Bay Times anal-
ysis found that D.R. Horton,
the nations largest home
builder, has pocketed the
rights beneath more than
2,500 Tampa Bay home-,
sites, whether the hom-
eowner realizes it or not.
With advances in drilling
technologies includ-
ing hydraulic fracturing,
known as crackingg" tap-
ping into natural gas and oil
reserves, experts say build-
ers see the deeds as lottery
tickets: jackpots buried be-
neath homes they can sell
at full price.

no one's taking any chanc-
es," Tampa land use attor-
ney Pamela Jo Hatley said
about builders.
D.R. Horton represen-
tatives did not respond
to calls or emails. But the,:
builder's own words fill
stacks of deeds filed since
2.007 reserving the rights
below homesites, includ-
ing more than 400 in Tam-
pa Bay this year.
Signed over from the
builder to its Texas-based
subsidiary, DRH Energy, the
deeds hand eternal rights
to practically anything, of
value that it finds buried


underground, including
*gold and gemstones.
A home buyer who learns
the land is encumbered
might decide to look some-
where else. And a'hom-
eowner who agrees to the
deal could~have problems
sellingto sorrieone else.
"It could screw up a deal
if that were brought to the
forefront," said James Ruf-
folp, a Realtor with Charles
RUtenberg Realty. "Buyers
want the best deal possible,
they want to own thehome
outright, and that could re-
ally rub people the wrong
way."

The Cottondale Hornets'
dream season will continue.
After defying the odds just to
make it to the playoffs, the Hor-
nets again/'surprised perhaps
everyone but themselves Friday
night by knocking off the un-
defeated Baker Gators 28-23 in
the first round of the' A state
playoffs.'.


The Gators came into the game
10-0 and the champions of Dis-
trict 1 and appeared to have
things under control against the
feisty runner-ups from District
2, leading 16-6 early in the third
quarter.
But an 18-yard touchdown run
by Norris Calhoun brought the
Hornets back to within four, at
16-12, and the senior' running
back put the Hornets in front
when he took a swing pass from,


Justin Klotz for an 80-yard score.
Calhoun converted, the two-
point conversion with a jump
pass to DaMichaelFaulkto make
it 20-16 with 7:33 remaining in
the game.
Cottondale got the ball back
after a defensive stop, but an

BY DUSTIN KENT
dkent@jcfloridan.com

The Graceville Lady'Tigers dropped
their regular season opener on Thurs-
day night,'taking a 42-31 road loss to the
Bethlehem Lady Wildcats.
Graceville jumped out to an 8-5 lead
to start the game, but Bethlehem scored
the final five points of the period to go
up 10-8 and never trailed again.
The Lady Wildcats held a 21-14 edge
at the halftime break and extended the
margin to 35-19 through three quarters.
It was the first real game of the season
for the Lady Tigers, who didn't play any
preseason games this year, and coach
Jon Habali said that it showed.
"It was our first time seeing live action
really. We've been practicing with five
or six girls and you don't get to simulate
game speed," he said. "Bethlehem came
out running and hit some threes on
us early. We made some runs to get to
within single digits, but we couldn't get
the lead. Offensively, we played good
and got some good looks at the basket,
but we couldn't finish."
Madison McDaniel led the LadyTigers
with nine points, with Dominique Rob-
inson adding eight.


Graceville was scheduled to take on
Paxton on Saturday before starting this
week off with a district matchup against
Wewahitchka on Monday at home at

Dolphins' Martin ends silence


The Associated Press
NEW YORK Jonathan Martin
spent nearly seven hours going into
"great detail" with the NFL counsel
investigating his claims of his ha-
rassment in the Miami Dolphins'
locker room. What came up in their
talks, he isn't saying for now.
He would say this: He still wan cs
to play in the NFL..
Martin in town because the
league is trying to gather informa-
tion about the bullying he says
he was subjected to by teammate
Richie Incognito arrived at the
Manhattan office building of spe-
cial investigator Ted Wells on Fri-
day morning, and didn't emerge
until shortly after sunset. Mobbed
by media, he stood in the camera
lights and read a statement.
"AlthoughlI went into.great detail
with Mr. Ted Wells and his team, I
do not intend to discuss this matter
publicly at this time," Martin said.
"This is the rightway to handle the
situation.
"Beyond that, I look forward to
working through the process and
resuming my career in the National
Football League."
After that, he and attorney Da-
vid Cornwell went back into the
building, later leaving via a side
exit.

Miami Dolphins lineman Jonathan Martin speaks to members of the media outside
the office of the. NFL lawyer investigating the team's bullying scandal Friday in
New York.


Rick Ross came by. His record label
is located in the building across the
street. 1
Incognito 'has acknowledged
leaving a voicemail for Martin in
April in which he used a racial slur,
threatened to kill his teammate and
threatened to slap Martin's mother.
Incognito has said he regrets the
racist and profane language, but
said it stemmed from culture of
locker-room brotherhoodo" not
bullying.
Incognito is white and Martin is
black. Teammates, both black and
white, have said Incognito is not a
racist, and they've been more sup-


portive of the veteran guard than
they have of Martin.
Incognito has been suspended by
the Dolphins. He filed a grievance
Thursday against the team over his
suspension, and has said his con-
duct was part of the normallocker-
room environment.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross
also plans to meet with Martin,
who said Friday that he will indeed
get together with the dolphins'
front office. On Monday, Ross said
two committees would examine the
locker-room culture. Players have
been virtually unanimous in saying
it doesn't need to be changed.

I That's true as a rule. With
the patience of Job and a
keen survival instinct, big
buck whitetails usually
lay low when the wind is
blowing hard. Much better
to suffer hunger or unre-
quited passion to browse
and breed another day.

however. Like Christmas

white from rubbing and
brush-hooking.
He stood posed, as
majestic bucks are wont
to do, like an egotistic
body builder, as if he
knew his "audience" was
looking on in amazement
and wonder. We each
remained motionless and
stared each other down for
perhaps 30 seconds, much
longer than most humans
ever have to view a living
deer of that magnitude.


"He should be running,"
my mind informed. "Why
doesn't he?"
Then came the thought,
"He's not going to move
unless I do," and then, "or
unless he smells me."
The wind. That revela-
tion came suddenly. He's
confused. He's not sure
what I am or what I have
in mind. For airthe years
he's roamed these woods
he's bedded down all day
on days like this. Can he
be wondering how he
could have been so fool-
ish, to let his guard down
this way? No, of course
not. Deer don't think or
reason.
Or do they?
TWenty yards apart we
stood, this buck and 1.1
held the upper hand, of
course. I knew exactly
what he was, I could accu-
rately guess his next move
if things didn't change
soon, and, above all, I had
a clear sense of his vulner-
ability at thai moment.
I had him. He was mine,
pure and simple.


For a few seconds longer,
the standoff continued. In
that span the wind I sup-
pose made a subtle shift
and carried man-smell
to his nostrils. Stalemate
over. Standoff at an end.
Primordial instinct and
wild-animal smarts now
in high gear; he leapt
upward and sideways at
once, then bounded away.
I watched the "flag" and
'those magnificent antlers
get progressively smaller
as his flight carried him
away.
No longer cautious
about moving, I exhaled
a cloud of cold-morning
vapor that was quickly
-caught up and carried
away by the stiffening
breeze now rustling the
deep-woods foliage.
Today, nearly eight years
later, there remains no
doubt in my mind he was
the finest whitetail deer
I've ever seen alive.
Oh, by the way, I had
no gun that day. It was
a morning's walk, not a
hunt.


Lake Seminiole
Bass fishing is good.
With the fish becoming
acclimated to the con-
sistently cooler weather,
they are becoming more
active. On shallow grass
flats, Rat-L-Traps and
,other tip-less crankbaits
are producing. Grass lines
in the main lake are good
spots to target for some
pretty consistent flipping
action. Slow presentations
and stout equipment are
key here.
Crappie fishing may
be fair at times along the
moderately deep channel
ledges. Look for the fish
in stump fields at 10 to 15
feet and use live minnows.
Bream are very slow.
Catfish are hit-and-miss,`
but a few may be caught
with earthworms off the
river channels.
Lake Eufaula
Bass fishing is fair. The
southern end of the lake
is the best bet at present.
The cool-weather fish are
primarily holding along
deeper points near and'
in the creeks. Slow-rolled
spinnerbaits can produce
in these areas. Texas-
rigged lizards have also
produced fair action in the
afternoons on points and
around dock structure.
Crappies may bite fairly
well in deeper sections or
the creeks, especially later


in the day. Bridge struc-
ture may also hold some
fish. Minnows are best
now.
Bream are slow and cat-
fish may bite worms n the
flats in the afternoon.
Lake Andrews/
Chattahoochee River
Catfish have been pretty
good, but may slow down
as temperatures, water
level and clarity fluctu-
ate. If conditions warrant,
use live earthworms to
catch them along bluff
walls where currents are
not too strong. Late in the
day, catfish may also bite
on sandbars and points.
Tailwacer cats will be slow
to bite, but the fish caught
in the tailwaters will be
larger as a rule than those
in other location&s-
Bream will slow down
considerably, but if clear
water can be found up the
creeks a few may be taken
on worms fished on the
bottom. Bream fishing in
this fashion in the creeks
.may also produce some
pretty good catfish from
time to time.
Bass are slow. If water
conditions are right,
some maybe caught in
the creeks on worms and
crank baits. The bass fish-
ing will be hit-or-miss at
best.
Crappies are very slow
right now.'

Annie's Mailbox


Dear Annie: I have been married to
Sarah for nine years. We have two young
sons, both with developmental issues.
When I met Sarah, she had an older
son, "Del," who was in the temporary
custody of her father's cousins. The
cousins have raised the boy since he was
6 months old. He is now 13 and under-
stands that our sons are his half-broth-
ers. His biological father gets him on
.occasional weekends, and he always has
had regular contact with Sarah and her
parents.
The cousins ,are good people. Del calls
them "Mom and Dad." But they are
in theirnate 50s and not in the best of
health. Their financial situation is also
not as good as.ours. They also have an
adopted daughter who is 14. The girl
-was raped by a babysitter two years ago.
Then, six months later, she accused her
dad of raping her. My wife believes the
girl said this for attention, and although I
agree that the dad doesn't seem capable
of such a thing, it still worries me.
Sarah never gave up legal custody
of Del. I'really love the boy and enjoy
spending time with him. He lives nearby
and rides his bike to our place frequent-
ly. Del has asked questions about living
with us, but Sarah says she could never.
take him away from his parents. What is
the right thing to do?
CONFUSED IN PENNSYLVANIA
Dear Confused: We commend you for
wanting to take this boy, but we suspect
Sarah feels overwhelmed raising two
children with developmental issues
and is afraid to add a third child who is
entering adolescence. Has there been an
investigation of the alleged rape? If the
charges are unfounded, it could indicate
that the daughter is unstable, which also
is not a great environment for Del.
And examine your own motives -
perhaps you feel attached to Delbe-,
cause he is more like the son you wish -
you had. I .
Talk to Sarah about having Del at your
home'more often and for overnight.r
stays. See how he interacts with his'


half-siblings and how Sarah responds to
his presence. We also recommend you
look into family counseling.

' Dear Annie: Whenever my wife and I
go to the movies, it seems there's at least
a 50 percent chance that someone will
be chatting throughout the film. I find
this profoundly distracting, as I'm sure
everyone else does. I get so angry, but
I'm not sure what to say. I don't want
to cause a scene, just make them stop
interrupting the film. What magic words
would you advise I use?
-B.B.
Dear B.B.: There is no magic that will
make a.rude person less so. A glare
often does the trick, but you. also could
politely whisper, "I'm sure you don't
mean to disturb everyone. Could you
please talk when'the movie is over?'You
also could find an usher, but that neces-
sitates missing part of the movie. If they
don't pipe down, be sure to complain to
the management afterward.

Dear Annie: I have a response to the
letter from "N.Y.," the 35-year-old man
who thinks his mom is being controlling
because she throws her arm across his
chest when they come to a sudden stop
in the car.
I, too, am in my 30s, and when I go
somewhere with my friend, she does the
same thing throwing her arm over me
when she stops short. You know what?
We laugh. It's such a natural instinct to
do this in an effort to protect people you
love. I do the same thing myself when I
drive my~aunt, who is in her 59s. '
"N.Y." needs to get a grip.

Bridge;"


Defense is the hardest part of the game;
as we all know. But most pairs spend
little time discussing it, preferring to
concentrate on bidding.
If you~feel your partner's basic defense
needs sharpening, buy her or him "De-
fensive Play at Bridge: A Quizbool" by
Barbara Seagram and David Bird (Master
Point Press). This book is aimed at near-
beginners'and intermediates.
jhe,bcpok starts with 10 pages of basik
instruction. Then there are four pages
specifically about no-trump contracts,
followed by 34 quiz questions on a
right-hand page with the full deal and
answer on the next left-hand page. Next,
there are two pages about suit contracts,
followed by 30 quizzes. Finally, there is a
glossary. In addition, there are valuable
"points to remember" on each question
and each answer page.,
The book is excellent for its market.
Here is one of the no-trump questions.
Look only at the North and West hands.
South is in three no-trump. West leads
the spade six. East wins with his queen
and returns the spade 10, South playing
the five and the eight. How should West
defend?
South must be holding up the spade
ace. But it is the only unseen spade. So,
West should overtake his partner's 10
