By JESSICA McCARTHY 747-5073 | @PCNHJessica firstname.lastname@example.org PONCE DE LEON In August 2010, diver Ben McDaniel went into the Vortex again, but this time he was never seen again. More than 18 months later, Investigation Discovery is sharing his story with the nation on its series Disappeared. Holmes County Chief Investigator Harry Hamilton said this week McDaniels disappearance is an active missing persons case on which theyre still working. On March 9, cadaver dogs were again brought to Vortex Springs, but no additional information was uncovered. Elizabeth Fischer, executive producer for Peacock Productions, said the goal in making Disappeared isnt trying to solve the case; its about telling people what happened. We dont go in thinking we can solve it, but we hope we can shine a light on it and kick up a little dust and maybe certain people can look at it a little differently, whether thats law enforcement, family or anyone else, Fischer said. In McDaniels case, he had moved to Florida from a Memphis, Tenn., suburb and was working on becoming a scuba instructor, logging multiple dives in locations such as Vortex Springs in Ponce de Leon. The cave at Vortex Springs is known as a challenging and dangerous dive; only part of the cave is accessible without a key to the underwater gate that blocks unauthorized divers from going farther. The Disappeared episode, which will air Monday at 8 p.m. CDT, takes viewers through the journey of both law enforcement and the McDaniel family. Fischer said they felt it important to include both sides of the journey. Whenever we do one of these episodes, our goal is to try to tell the story through a weave of the familys journey to understand and the investigation law enforcement has undertaken, Fischer said. Kim Weinstein, who produced the McDaniel episode, said the McDaniel family saw this an opportunity to help. I believe that, odds are with a lot of the families, they come to point where theyre not sure what else they can do, Weinstein said. The McDaniels were eager to participate.

Connect With Us 24/7 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT email@example.com VERNON Michelle Cook was elected mayor of Vernon on Tuesday night, defeating her opponent, DeWayne Carter, 59-51. Former mayor Al Mani decided not to seek re-election after four years of service. The last four years have been the greatest Civics lesson of my life, he said. I know a lot more now than I did before. Its been a real pleasure, and I thank you for the opportunity. Mani handed Cook a baseball cap labeled Mayor of Vernon as the two exchanged seats after Cook was sworn into of ce. The new mayor declined to model the cap for the audience. Three City Council seats also were up for election, two of which were retained by incumbents Gwen March, who received 92 votes, and Joey Brock, who received 74 votes. The third seat was open because it is being vacated by Tray Hawkins. Hawkins said he intends to seek election to the Washington County Board of County Commissioners. Oscar Ward was elected to the third seat on the council with 70 votes. Lara Stucki, who also was running for City Council, only received 40 votes, according to City Clerk Dian Hendrix. Vernon council seats are all at-large positions, so in theory if both challengers had garnered more votes than an incumbent, then the incumbent would have been unseated. Its been a pleasure to work with each of you, Hawkins told the council. I think we really worked hard for the city of Vernon. In other business, Hendrix reported that part of the ceiling in the womens bathroom at the city hall had fallen. She showed photos to the council and informed them that the insurance company had been noti ed about the damage. The council also approved holding the annual Easter egg hunt from 1 to 3 p.m. April 12 at the Vernon sports complex. Council approves zoning request By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org CHIPLEY The city came on step closer to having a new wheelchair accessible apartment complex Tuesday when the Chipley City Council members voted 4-1 to approve a rezoning request for Goodwill IndustriesBig Bend to change the property zoning behind Washington Square from commercial to residential. The complex had squeaked through the planning commission with a 3-2 vote on Feb. 23, and the discussion of the topic had been heated at March 8 city council work session as well, with most of the heat being generated by Councilman Roger Sloan. I support this zoning change, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett told the council. These will be 14 residences for people who need this kind of housing, Everett said. This apartments look good, and are in good taste. And we have people in our community who need housing like this. Everett said the land on which the 15-apartment complex is to be built is rated as Flood Zone X, which means it is likely to be totally ooded every 500 years. Are we in year 499? asked Sloan, the sole member of the panel to vote against the zoning change. When I went by there on Sunday that land was wet, he noted. Sloan noted he counted 14 vacant houses that were for rent in Chipley. Are they ADA compliant? Everett asked, referring to the American with Disabilities Act, which sets requirements for handicapped accessible buildings. I dont know what you are talking about, Sloan replied.

Most of the planning commissions questions dealt with subjects that have to do with the development order, Everett said. Those are concerns that will be addressed as the development order is created. Today, we are just talking about changing the zoning. President of Goodwill Big Bend Fred G. Shelfer Jr. told the council these apartments are a specialty in that they are built to be wheelchair accessible. In most homes, to wash dishes, if you are in a wheelchair, you have to roll up and turn sideways and reach over into the sink. These apartments have roll up sinks, he said. We also have special appliances. With a regular stove, the controls are on the back and it can be dangerous if you are in a wheelchair to have to lean over and turn on the stove. Our stoves have controls on the front. Sloan also asked about parking. Shelfer said that most of the residents in the complexes did not have automobiles. GoodwillBig Bend operates 11 such apartment complex in the 22 county area served by the organization, Shelfer said. The apartments slated for Chipley are being funded by a federal grant which is based in part on the organization having found a willing landowner to let them build the complex. Where we are at today, we either build here or we go home, Shelfer said. These grants are going away, and there is no way we could go back and get re-approved with a different piece of land. Shelfer said the state of Florida was approved for 30 of these apartment units, and half of that number is being built here in Chipley. That takes into account Tallahassee, Tampa, all those communities we were competing against, he said. In other business, the council approved a parade route for next years Martin Luther King Jr. parade which was submitted by the parade committee and the Rev. Thomas Smith of Mount Ararat Missionary Baptist Church. The parade route had been discussed at the previous city council meeting and referred to Police Chief Kevin Crews for review.

Community EVENTS DISCOVERY from page A1 was one of the main advocates for doing the show and talked to the family. They believed getting the story national attention would help his case. I think they were pretty hopeful about it. Though many people believed Ben never came out of the cave, elite rescue divers from around the world have searched but ha-vent found him. Theories about how he could be in there and not be seen, whether he was in the cave or not, and whether McDaniel set the situation up to disappear were as varied as the number of people discussing what happened. The McDaniels family ada-mantly denied Ben would ever do something like that to his family. Fischer said they include all of the possibilities and theories because thats what the investigators have to consider. When we cover these stories, we try to put ourselves in the mindset of the investigators, Fischer said. As they go along, they are considering a handful of theories and we present each of them. Were not including these parts to give them credibility or to take it away; they are just a part of the investigation as it happened.

Call 638-0212. I always look forward to meeting members of the local religious community. With that in mind, Ive been attending a number of different religious services in addition to my own. Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit the First Free Will Baptist Church of Chipley. One thing that has really impressed me since moving to the area is the friendliness of the people at the various religious services Ive visited. This church was no exception. A good sermon was delivered using Matthew 9:35-38 as the text. This passage documents Jesus teaching in the synagogues and healing the sick, reminding the disciples that, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few. A number of excellent points were brought out by the pastor about these Gospel verses, but a seemingly trivial detail stood out for me: Jesus was once again traveling while spreading his message. In the stories about Jesus ministries, he isnt depicted as sitting indoors and passively attending services. Instead, hes out and about, traveling among the people. Hes teaching, preaching and healing. He didnt see being a mere member of the congregation as the nal stop on his spiritual journey. He went out to see people, and likewise, they came out to hear the message. It wasnt a stayat-home situation. Whenever I move to a new location, even after I nd a spiritual group to unite with, it doesnt mean that my religious life ends there. Ive always been interested in educating myself, and that education is spiritual as well as secular. So I regularly attend the services and rites of various denominations and religions, both inside and outside of my own faith tradition. Staying in one place and never questioning anything isnt a very appealing way to live, and neither is getting only one side of the story. Learning about other beliefs from rsthand experience is one of the building blocks of establishing peace and religious harmony. There are de nite bene ts that come from interacting with people of different faiths, but none of those bene ts will ever be realized by those who never get up and leave the pew. Think how differently the Gospels would read if Jesus never left the religious congregation in which he was raised, or refused to mix with people of different backgrounds? I think it sets an example for us to interact with others. Belonging to one congregation but never visiting any others would be like going to a school but never seeking any knowledge outside of the school building itself. The vast majority of what I learned in school, particularly college, was gained from my own private research supplementing what was being taught in the classroom. Similarly, classes in the school of life arent offered in a single isolated location, or to only one group of people. The time of clinging protectively to notions of class, race, religion, nation, culture or political af liations are long past. Such arbitrary divisions begin to fall by the wayside when we regularly interact with those who are different from ourselves. Having said that, when I belong to a congregation, I feel more at home there. Theres something about sharing religious faith with a tight-knit community that can be deeply moving. While I de nitely believe in promoting interfaith cooperation, theres also nothing like returning to the spiritual solace of ones own faith community. Some of my friends who werent brought up in the South were initially confused by the common Southern phrases church family or church home. As soon as I arrived in this town, people were knocking on my door asking if I had found a church home yet. At any rate, while these terms may sound peculiar to those from other areas, I can understand them. Ones religious community can, indeed, function as a family or a spiritual home base. Even my friends who are solitary religious practitioners will occasionally meet with fellow believers, whether online or in person, to establish a sense of camaraderie and spiritual interaction. A sense of religious family can be important to believers. On the other hand, while being part of a religious community is certainly an uplifting experience, it was never meant to be a cocoon. It cant, and shouldnt, keep people sheltered from outside in uences. Its not an excuse for isolation. Its time to get out and share your message of hope and compassion with the rest of the world, while being careful to listen to the messages you may be hearing from others along the way. Its a ne thing to enjoy ones church family, but be sure to enjoy your global family, as well. Speaking of getting out and about, heres a way to broadcast your own local religious news to the rest of the community.
