Since December 2010, the unemployment rate has dropped 4.1 percentage points, and Florida has created 365,500 new private sector jobs. This is evidence that our pro-growth and business-friend ly policies are working. In the same timeframe, the national unemployment rate has dropped 2.0 percentage points, demonstrat ing Floridas improving economic climate continues to outpace the national recovery. Floridas unemployment rate has now declined year-over-year for 34 consecutive months. The governor said Florida has experienced positive annual job growth for 37 consecutive months. Floridas job growth month-to-month has been positive for 23 of the last 26 months. Florida has created 365,500 new private sector jobs since December 2010, and the state is expected to cre ate almost 1.1 million new jobs by 2018, according to the Florida Economic Estimating Conference. Florida job postings compiled by the Help Wanted OnLine data series from The Conference Board showed 266,467 openings in August 2013 (seasonally adjusted). Florida had the largest over-the-month gain of all states, up 11,644 openings. Florida had the fourth highest num ber of openings in the nation compared to all states. Also, Florida home sales remain robust as the backlog of existing homes on the market is down by 23 percent from August 2012, Scott said. Florida median home prices were up 18.6 percent over the year in August 2013. A recent U.S. Census Survey reported that Florida ex perienced an inux of people moving into the state. Flori da also led the nation in migrations from Puerto Rico. Florida is also running a trade surplus of more than $24 billion with $86.8 billion in exports and $62.4 billion in imports in 2011, up from $73.1 billion in exports in 2010 and $53.2 billion in imports in 2010, according to the gov ernors report. In August, Floridas 24 Regional Workforce Boards re ported more than 41,000 Floridians were placed in jobs. This represents an increase of almost 12,000 placements over the year from August 2012. An individual who receives employment and training assistance through a One-Stop Career Center and nds a job within 180 days is deemed a placement and may be re ported by a regional workforce board. Of these individuals, 11,967 previously received Reemployment Assistance. In 2012, more than 426,000 Floridians were placed in jobs, with 111,173 former claimants nding employment.

Tickets are available at Wells Fargo Bank in Chipley. The drawing will be held on Monday, Sept. 30. BRIEFS from page A1 Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, earlier in the day about reviewing laws passed last year, he was compelled to ask that this law also be reviewed. Rep. Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City, co-sponsored the legislation. In committee and on the Senate oor, Latvala asked whether claw machines would be affected and was told they wouldnt. Now, however, a 100-employee business in his dis trict has been forced to remove claw machines from all of its major retail ers in Florida because of the law, he said. Latvala also said he had asked whether the legislation would pave the way for a new cause of action for lawsuits and was told no, but he said Dave & Busters and Chuck E. Cheeses are being sued by third parties under the law. Law enforcement also is crack ing down on the gambling-style arcade machines at bowling al leys, which have been there for years, Latvala said. He said he had been under the impression the law wouldnt affect those machines. We went after Internet cafes, but I think we need to look very closely at was there unintended consequenc es of what we did, Latvala said. Committee chairman Garrett Richter, R-Naples, agreed and said if there were unintended consequences they should be addressed.STUD Y RE V IE W E D The committee spent the bulk of the one-hour meeting Monday re viewing the rst part of a $388,845 gambling study, written by the New Jersey-based Spectrum Gaming Group. The second part of the report is due Oct. 1. The committee recon venes Oct. 7 and the studys authors will attend and take questions from the panel. Spectrum is not going to be mak ing any (policy) recommendations to you, John Guthrie, the committees staff director, said during his presen tation on the study. Guthrie ran through plenty of information already familiar to the committee: Parimutuels are in de cline as horse and dog tracks strug gle; the bulk of the American public views gambling as acceptable for themselves and others (85 percent according to one study); and many Americans gamble, with 53 percent playing the lottery last year and 32 percent going to a casino. Theres something in the report for every perspective that comes to the debate, Guthrie said. Richter made it clear developing a comprehensive bill, which is the committees plan, would be a long process, but the study would act as the foundation. It will serve as our starting line as we go forward, he said. The process will get hectic. Once the second part of the study is re leased and information piles up, it will be like drinking out of a re hose, Richter said. NO M I A MI HE A RIN G South Florida senators also ex pressed displeasure that east Mi ami-Dade County will not host a public hearing to gather community input for the comprehensive bill. Sen. Gwen Margolis, D-Miami, said that part of the county experiences the most tourism and would be the most affected by gaming changes. It would seem to me we should be hearing from the communities that will be the most affected if anything changes, she said. Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, also agreed. She said Miami has the most parimutuels and some of the old est facilities in the state. The hearings are being held in Coconut Creek and Lakeland in October and Pensacola and Jacksonville in November. Maybe we could put together a meeting that would take place in those areas of the state that have the longest history and tradition of types of gambling, she said. GAMING from page A1

Are you asking yourself, what is Relay For Life? If so I am going to tell you the story as provided to me by the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and ght back against the disease. At Relay, tams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. Relay began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Washington, ran and walked around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Since then, Relay has grown from a single mans passion to ght cancer into the worlds largest movement to end the disease. Each year, more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with additional communities in 20 other countries, gather to take part in the global phenomenon and raise muchneeded funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. Thanks to Relay participants, the American Cancer Society continues to save lives. No that you know what Relay For Life is you may now be wondering, What happens at Relay For Life events? Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays, no matter where they are held. These traditions help participants celebrate, remember, and ght back. We Celebrate with the Survivors Lap Relay starts with a Survivors Lap a inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the tack together and help everyone celebrate the victories weve achieved over cancer. The Survivors Lap is an emotional example of how Relay participants are ensuring that more lives are saved each yearlike those of each individual on the track. We also recognize and celebrate caregivers are Relay For Life. These individuals give their time, love, and support to friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers who face cancer. At Relay, people understand the frustrations and joys of being a caregiver, since the effects of cancer reach far beyond just the person diagnosed. We Remember with the Luminaria Ceremony After dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags lled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participant often walk a lap in silence. As people take time to remember, those who have walked alongside others battling cancer can grieve and nd healing. This is a time that truly highlights the importance of defeating this disease. We Fight Back with The Fight Back Ceremony Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where we make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the ght against cancer. That personal commitment may be to do something a simple as getting a screening test, quitting smoking, or talking to elected ofcials about cancer. By taking action, people are personally taking steps to save lives and ght back against a disease that takes too much Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back are themes that link all Relay Events together.

All the topics under this heading are equally interesting, but the lead item always serves to remind me just how eeting time is. When retiring 21 years from county judge position, little did I know what a busy schedule I would follow this far down the line. Writing the Prattle has come into my life since retirement. My involvement in the Heritage of Washington County Book, as well as more participation in the Washington County and the Vernon Historical Societies, were also added. Mentioned in the past is that I was named president of the Senior Class in Vernon High School in 1944. Little did I realize the assignment would stick with me the remainder of my life. As president of the 1944 Graduation Class, it fell my lot to head up the committee to plan and preside at class reunions, which became an annual event. It was on April 20, that our class held a reunion celebrating our 69th year since graduating from Vernon High School. The lives of Hester and Perry Wells has been a rollercoaster since the April get together. It is no secret that neither of us were physically able to carry forth the reunion. This probably was obvious to the remaining faithful class mates who did attend. Without going into gory details, Hester had been revisited with the chronic bronchial disorder that she was diagnosed with three years ago. This resulted in her being hospitalized in Dothan on April 23, the third day after our class reunion. Again, sparing graphics, your writer had been overcome with a anemic disorder, which did not put me in the hospital but did hinder in ministering to Hesters needs. My curtailed activities brought a few telephone calls from faithful friends especially when I did not show up for the monthly Chamber of Commerce meetings where I have presided since 1988. Parenthetically, allow me to say that I highly appreciated all of those inquiries on me as well as those checking on Hesters recovery. She was released on May 7 to convalesce at home. Our social calendar was kept to a minimum for the next several weeks. However when June 15th arrived, we simply had to attend the annual Brock Reunion, which has been a must in my life, as well as for Hester since she joined the family almost sixty-one years ago. My readers know my track record with the annual Watermelon Festival, held the last full week end in June. It is known that I retired from my 30-year chairmanship of that event eight years ago. The new chairman, Judge Colby Peel, thankfully keeps the old chairman involved in the event, much to my delight. Hester stood with me again this year and we even made two trips to the watermelon elds for the prize melons, an activity which I have continued to carry out. Much to our liking, invitations continued to come to the Wells household requesting our presence at the special events of friends. On Saturday, July 20, we were invited to join and help surprise and celebrate the 70th birthday of our special friend, Roger Dale Taylor. The event was held in the mammoth Tallahassee Auto Museum in Tallahassee. It was hosted by Dales lovely wife, Beverly, their daughter, Alyson Taylor and the son, Clayton Taylor. The occasion was a well kept secret to Dale and the look on his face as he entered the gigantic banquet hall, lled with friends, left no doubt that he was completed overwhelmed at the event. His brother Kent and wife from Crawfordville, Florida invited Hester and me to join their table. Other Washington County neighbors and friends attending include Marcia Sapp Agner, Jack and Angia Hinson Morris, John Teusink and wife, Barbara Harrell Teusink and H. L. Brown and wife, Liller Brock Brown. The Prattler acknowledges with much humility that H. L. and Dale were the prime movers in having Highway 277 designated as the Judge Perry Wells Highway in 2010, an honor that I shall always treasure. Then on August 1st, we were honored with an invitation to another surprise event, the 50th Wedding Anniversary party of Shelton Carroll and wife, Bobbie Perkins Carroll. It was held at The Oaks restaurant in Marianna and hosted by Tina Carroll Encarnacion, the daughter of the couple and Gwyn Carroll Harris, the sister of Shelton. The celebration was well attended by friends, family and others. The expression on the faces of the honored couple was one of complete surprise as they entered into the banquet room. We have attempted to carry on our other usual expected activities, attending church and visiting the sick folk in our circle. We know we have missed funerals which normally one or both would have attended. This includes my cousin, Wilma Wells Stubbs, who passed away in early August. I missed the funeral of Bill Day, the brother of Paul Day. Bill had just retired from the Washington County School system when he was stricken and passed away after only a few days. Neither could I attend the service for Charles Reeves, who passed away after a lengthy illness. Charles was County Forrester, who retired after a long tenure of service. Pearl Moody Newsoms funeral was missed and I know there are others. Hester regretted missing the funeral for Esto resident and longtime friend of the family, Bill McGowan. Apologizes are extended should this writing begin to sound like a sob story. I felt inclined to report on my absence in so many places during this fast moving year. I am happy to report that both Hester and I are on the mend. With another week or so of iron sulfate in the old system, the Prattler should be back in the full swing of things. Thanks for all the interest shown in our well being and prayers for better days ahead. See you all next week. Ive had a lot of feedback on the articles about old homes in Bonifay. I myself am interested in old homes as they are the history of the people who dwelt there. In the Holiday Restaurant the other day, Ronnie Hagan Gentry and Myrt Sims pointed that I hadnt mentioned the Sims house, one of the oldest in the area. I assured them Id get to it. When I was teaching, one project that I had my 7th grade class do was to interview the owner of the oldest home they knew about and write their stories. Those stories have become a part of our Heritage History of Holmes County. Paul Quattlebaum interviewed James Archie Sims, Jr. the son of the builder of the home. Ronnie, great-grand-daughter, brought me the list of family who grew up there and I also interviewed Eddie Sims a grand-son. The house was built in 1898 by James Archie (Jimbo) Sims, Sr. and Levy [le vee] Yates his father-in-law. Sims was married to Amy Yates and the children born to this couple were James (Jasper) Eddie, James Archie, Jr, C.Yawkey, Ella Brock, Bessie Mae Cooley, Jewel White, Grace Brock and Alice and Katie both of whom died in childhood. The 2 older sons were born in a frame home near the present home, but the other children were born and reared in the new construction. J. Archie and Argie Lee Van Sims four children, Avonelle Sims Hagans, Archie Van, Gene, and Jimmy Sims were also brought up in the home. The house was built from timbers grown on the property, hand cut sills, tree trunks for the foundation, and tongue and groove lumber for the nished oors and twelve or fourteen foot ceilings. I dont remember Mr. Jimbo Sims, but I do remember his wife, my grandmothers cousin Amy. I also remember having Sunday dinner there at the invitation of Argie Lee, a dear friend of my mother. My grandfather, Tom Wells, one of the hardest working men I ever knew had a great respect for Mr. Jimbo Sims. I took that to mean that Sims was also a hard-working, ambitious man. About that same time, my grandparents built a similar sized home farther south toward Bethel Church where they raised their 6 children. Dec 31, 1949, however, that house burned to the ground as my brother Max and cousin Tom Wells were cleaning it out so that Tom could live there. We (my Dad) had used it as a tenant house after my Uncle Alex family moved out. After the death of Argie Lee Sims and Amy Sims and the launch of the grand children, Ella Brock who had built a house next door, bought the home place. Later grandson the late Jimmy Sims and wife Myrtice (Harrison) bought the home, making improvements including a large expansion. They now use it for family reunions and as a weekend retreat. The Sims family is a large in uential family. Daughter Bessie Mae married Gus Cooley and they raised a large family in Panama City. Their son Tommy Cooley is a successful businessman in Panama City being associated with Byrd and Sons Coco Cola Co and other interests. The north-east wing of Bay Medical Center is named for the Cooley family. One of my high school classmates and life-long friend, Dorothy Brock Peters, is the daughter of Grace and John Brock, of the Sand Hills. (to distinguish them from our Brock clan.) We are connected to the Sims family through the Yates family. Sarilda Yates married my greatgreat-Uncle Josh Brock and Jane Yates married his brother, my great grandfather, Tom Brock. Id have to read the Sims History to see the relationship. It is a pleasure to see old homes preserved by family and others. I hope we can nd a way to preserve the old homes in our town as they are important to our history and culture. Notice: The HCHS Reunion will resume at noon Oct. 8 at Baileys Restaurant. Please let Carlton or Kathy Treadwell (547-3526) or me (547-4696) know if you can come. My email is jetison@embarqmail.com. When it comes to defending the legality of his executive order to drug test state employees, Florida Gov. Rick Scott embraces the Han Solo philosophy of reckless abandon: Never tell him the odds. Nevertheless, maneuvering through a crowded asteroid eld at high speed is a walk in the park compared to Scotts chances of surviving the federal courts. Shortly after taking of ce in 2011, Scott signed an executive order mandating random drug tests for some 85,000 state employees and job applicants. When it was challenged in court by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the American Civil Liberties Union, Scott suspended the order, so its never been implemented nor will it likely ever be, at least not in full. Last year, U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro in Miami ruled Scotts policy violated the Fourth Amendments prohibition on unreasonable searches. In May, a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ban on random drug tests on all state employees, saying it almost certainly sweeps far too broadly. However, the court sent the case back to Ungaro on the grounds that legal precedent allows government to randomly test some employees, even those not suspected of illegal drug use. Indeed, courts have ruled that workers in safetysensitive jobs police, re ghters, pilots, train conductors, etc. can be randomly tested, because the government has a compelling interest in protecting the public. Ungaro plans to appoint a special master to come up with a proposed list of those positions. Scott shouldve declared victory albeit a narrow one and called it a day. Last week, though, Charles Trippe, a lawyer representing the governor, requested that Ungaro postpone that process while the state appeals all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The judge about fell out of her chair. The governor has about zero chance of winning that, Ungaro said. Delaying on appeal would push the case into 2014, an election year for Scott. Ungaro seemed mysti ed about the strategy. Do we hope the governor will be voted out of of ce? Ungaro asked. Is this the idea, keep the ball up in the air, pray he is not re-elected? She refused to postpone the process of identifying state jobs that would pass constitutional muster unless Scott agreed to abandon the executive order if the Supreme Court declined to hear the case. Trippe said he couldnt promise that. Scott is holding a pair of 2s and going all in with his chips. It wouldnt be the rst time. Scott already has seen another drug policy he supported, a 2011 law that mandated drug testing for all welfare recipients, shot down by the courts. The 11th Circuit this year said the state had not proved there was any need for the law, that there was no evidence that simply because an applicant for bene ts is having nancial problems, he is also drug addicted or prone to fraudulent and neglectful behavior. The governor vowed to appeal that one all the way to Washington, too. Maybe in his mind hes got nothing to lose. He can make a quixotic stand on an issue that usually garners high public support most people are more concerned about the morality of drug use than the constitutionality of policies. If he loses, he can blame the black-robed masters who care not about substance abuse. Its Floridians who pay the price, though literally. The Orlando Sentinel reported last December that Scott in 2012 cost state taxpayers upward of $1 million in legal appeals. He needs to stop gambling with the publics money, especially when hes the sucker sitting at the table.

The millage rate was approved with a vote of four to one, with Board member Debbie Kolmetz voting “no.” “We were able to break down the funding in much more depth than we’ve ever been able to before,” said Finance Ofcer Larry Hawkins. “We’ve got it bro ken down to where we can see the cost of each stu dent. We’re still not back to the peak we were at in 2008 but we’re functioning.” Local resident Janet Watson was present to ask about improving the school lunch program at Poplar Springs School. “Thanks to Mrs. Obama we’ve had to un dergo changes in the lunch rooms, though the only thing that’s changed is that they’ve added salads,” said Watson. “My children are coming home hungry.” Chairman Rusty Wil liams agreed that changes could be made to better the lunch selection at Poplar Springs School. “I know we’re following the state guidelines when it comes to providing school lunches,” said Superinten dent Eddie Dixon. “We can look at additional programs and see what we can do.” Watson also added that the gym’s air conditioning needed to be xed. “We had a tournament in a gym without AC,” said Watson. “I don’t believe it is good for the kids to play in an enclosed area at 170 degree Fahrenheit temperatures.” The board also approved of the list of out-of-eld teachers for 2013-14. “ESE standards have changed this year,” said Dixon. “The standard is that teachers must be cer tied in every subject they teach so a few will have to take a little while but they’re working on it.” The board also approved of out-of-county/state stu dents, bell schedules and school advisory councils. The next meeting of the Holmes County District School Board is set for 9 a.m. on Oct. 1.

We’re also offering for the rst time ever VIP tickets.” She said that with the VIP tickets the ticket hold ers get preferred parking behind the concession stands, a commemora tive cushion with special ized seating at the bull gates, someone to run to and from the concession stands for food and bev erages and a back arena pass allowing visitors to meet the riders and take pictures with barrel men, clowns, and others. “We’re limiting it to 100 VIP tickets per night,” said Spear. “This really gives them a chance to feel like VIPs. This idea was brought to us by our new stock contractor.” Another new feature Spear said she was excit ed about was the largest rafe prize they’ve ever offered. “We’re so excited,” said Spear. “We’ve decided to do a package with two tickets for the two night National Rodeo in Las Ve gas, a room at the world famous Las Vegas Hotel The Flamingo, two pairs of Miss Me Jeans and a 50/50 rafe where the money raised will be halved with the winner to help with travel expenses to Las Ve gas.

ARRE sS T sS By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CIT T Y BE E ACH — A “Back” Back Beach Road might be in Panama City Beach’s future after all. The city is in the preliminary planning stages of extending the existing portion of Pier Park Drive north of U.S. 98 and routing it to the west to intersect with State 79. The extension of Pier Park Drive potentially could serve as the long-rumored initial stage of a project to create what city ofcials are calling a “Back” Back Beach Road in Panama City Beach. City Manager Mario Gisbert said the project is important because the extension “basically becomes the rst leg of what someday would be … what we’re calling ‘Back’ Back Beach Road.” “There are some long-, long-, long-term projects out there. This is looking way out in the future,” Gisbert said. Gisbert said the initial project will be recommended to the Florida Department of Transportation by the Bay County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), an agency responsible for examining the county road system and prioritizing projects based on funding availability. So far, no money has been allocated for the proposal. On the TPO’s 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan, “Back” Back Beach Road is mapped out to begin at Richard Jackson Boulevard and run parallel to U.S. 98 west into Walton County, ending on U.S. 98 just west of County 30A. Gisbert said the TPO will elevate the project to “cost feasible” during its 2014 update. The city also is in discussions with the land owners, The St. Joe Co., regarding the expansion of Pier Park Drive, Gisbert said. “This is something the city is always looking at, … making Back Beach Road more efcient, especially with all the new development,” said Gisbert, who noted the FDOT is considering the project. The existing stretch of Pier Park Drive to the north of Back Beach Road lies directly west of the Pier Park North shopping center site, a 360,000-square-foot development slated to open in the spring. Bay County Commissioner Mike Thomas said the project also would help in easing trafc congestion at State 79 and Back Beach Road during the annual Ironman Triathlon in November. The County Commission approved routes for the race at a meeting Tuesday, despite complaints from residents that the route causes congestion, especially at the busy Back Beach intersection. Thomas agreed the expansion also would help ease trafc in the area year-round. “With this new construction over there it will also make a difference, with” Pier Park North, Thomas said. “It would make a huge difference there, I would imagine.” Road would link State 79, Pier Park Preliminary planning for road underway “This is something the city is always looking at, … making Back Beach Road more efcient...” Mario Gisbert City Manager

Steve Southerland was optimistic Monday as he toured Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and held a subsequent discussion with travel and tourism industry leaders. The good news is we have the worlds most beau tiful beaches, weve got the worlds nest seafood and weve got the worlds friendliest people, South erland said of his native Bay County. If youve got those three things, (visitors are) going to come. Its not if; its when. Airport ofcials led Southerland, a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infra structure, on a tour of the facility, including a look into the control tower, baggage screening system and a site ECP Director Parker Mc Clellan said someday could house U.S. Customs and Border Protection. McClellan said the air port hopes to begin target ing air charter services from international destina tions in Europe, Canada and South America. Once Panama City gets discovered, the Europeans will jump all over it, Mc Clellan said. Despite a glass-half-full attitude, there was no shak ing talk of challenges as the airport plans for the future. Southerland, R-Panama City, said the visit helped him put a looming issue at the airport into perspective the potential defund ing of the Federal Aviation Administrations contract tower program, of which ECP participates. The airport would be at risk of losing about $600,000 for tower operations an nually if the program is cut from the federal De partment of Transporta tion budget. The program will remain intact for the upcoming scal year, but there is uncertainty down the road. The contract towers are critical to serve the medium and small markets around the country, Southerland said. It gets down to bud geting. In Washington, were looking at numbers on a page, but when we come down here and visit, its bigger than that. State tourism ofcials also expressed concern with dwindling funding for U.S. Customs staff in Flori das many international air ports, but they commended Southerland for his spon sorship of the JOLT Act, which will boost opportuni ties for international travel into the U.S. While Bay County drives a successful seasonal tour ism market, Southerland also addressed the need for growing industry in North west Florida to support the airport year-round. We cant just depend on one sector, said Souther land, who stressed the need for an economic balance, highlighting strides in Bay Countys medical indus try and value in the areas military bases and defense contractors. Obviously, those beauti ful beaches, thats going to attract people, Souther land said. We want to make this a full-time destination where people want to raise their children.

Local A8 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 25, 2013 One of the bulkheads features almost 1,900 linear feet at the ship channel turning basin, and the other offers al most 900 linear feet on the Gulf County Canal. The port is well-suited for bulk and cargo shipments, offering access to rail, the U.S. Gulf Intracoastal Water way, and state and U.S. highways. One of the rst rail ways in the country was built to the Port of St. Joe in the 1800s. There are some trestles that need work, and the state is going to step in and help us with that when the time comes, Pitts said. One of the ports greatest assets is the about 260 acres of combined ready-to-be-leased lands next to the bulk heads and the more than 5,000 acres of land in the port environs available for immediate development. Businesses wishing to establish facilities have plenty of room to build and expand. Pitts said the Pensacola port has only 50 acres, and Panama City has 105 acres for its port. The Port Authority is working to secure the funding for the necessary permits to dredge the shipping channel up to 37 feet. The St. Joe Company has partnered with the Port Authority by providing $250,000 in match for a $750,000 state Department of Transportation grant to dredge the port. After the initial dredging, the Army Corps of Engi neers will take over, and they will keep it dredged to 37 feet within a plus or minus of 2 feet, Pitts said. The port will not accommodate ships that draw 50 feet, but because of increased international shipping, many smaller ships that are being displaced from other ports will nd their way to Port St. Joe. The AN Railway LLC also is receiving $5 million to re habilitate about 19 miles of rail and 17 structures includ ing a trestle over the Apalachicola River to accommodate freight trains to and from the port. According to the ports website, the St. Joe Company has signed a letter of intent with Enova Energy Group, a full-service, clean energy development company spe cializing in development and operations of contracted renewable based assets. Enova has expressed an interest in transporting a minimum of 1 million metric tons per year of wood pel lets using the AN Railway to the Port of Port St. Joe for further shipment to overseas markets. Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett said the wood pellet industry also is having a positive effect on lo cal land owners who harvest trees. Prices for pulp was $5 per ton, and they are now $12$18 per ton, Everett said. The St. Joe Company has also signed a letter of intent with Green Circle Bio Energy Inc., a producer of biomass based renewable energy, Pitts said. The LOI anticipates several potential new business development opportuni ties to create jobs in the Northwest Florida region. Green Circle is interested in leasing a site from St. Joe along the AN Railway to develop a wood pellet production facility. Green Circle operates the worlds second largest wood pellet plant in Cottondale. The wood pellets pro duced at the new production facility can be transported via truck or AN Railway to the port for further shipment overseas. Both LOIs are contingent upon the Port of Port St. Joe receiving funding to complete maintenance dredging of the shipping channel. Eastern Shipbuilding Group of Panama City also has leased 20 acres at the port site to expand its shipbuilding, vessel construction and repair and industrial steel fabri cation operations in the Gulf Coast region. Economic growth takes a regional effort, Everett said. Its not just about one county or another it will take all of us working together, and Port St. Joe is poised to be a big economic player in the region.

The rst port development was during the 1830s and early 1840s. The town of St. Joseph was formed by a group of wealthy promoters so it could compete with Apalachicola for the export of large cotton crops and other locally produced commodities such as naval stores and lumber from Georgia and Alabama. Floridas rst railroad was built from Lake Wimico to St. Joseph Bay. Much of the cargo that would normally be shipped to the Port of Apalachicola was now detoured into the lake, where it was ofoaded and transported by rail to ships docked at St. Joseph. During this boom period between 1832 and 1842, the sea shore along St. Joseph was dened by long wharves extending almost 4,000 feet into the sea. The port also had a shipyard with many large warehouses scattered about. During the height of the rst ports existence, it easily competed with well-established ports such as Charleston, S.C., and New Orleans. Most of the exports from the Port at St. Joseph were shipped to New England or to overseas ports in Europe. The port was the growth engine for Old St. Joseph, and a growth engine it was. In a few short years after establishing the port, the town of St. Joseph soared to a population of almost 12,000 people and became the largest city in this new territory. The city was so charming and well known that in 1839, it hosted an assembly of statesmen for the purpose of establishing a state constitution. The fate of St. Joseph and its port, however, had only a short existence. In the summer of 1841, a ship sailed from Cuba into the Port of Port St. Joseph. Along with its cargo, it carried a passenger infected with a disease transmitted primarily from the bite of the mosquito. It was the dreaded disease, yellow fever, and it quickly spread throughout the town. Within a short month, the town was all but deserted. Those the yellow fever did not kill escaped to faraway places, never to return to this former city of death. The town of St. Joseph never recovered from the loss it sustained during this epidemic of yellow fever. The long docks and the waterfront buildings that dotted the shoreline began to deteriorate from lack of maintenance and upkeep. It wasnt long before they were completely destroyed. As told by historian Dale Cox, In September 1844, a hurricane struck St. Joseph, destroying much of what remained of the community and driving away some of the last inhabitants. Except for occasional small supply ships in and out of the port, this natural deep water harbor remained idle and undeveloped until around 1910, when the railroad was again activated. Piers jutting about 1,800 feet into the bay were constructed with railroad tracks so ships could load and unload directly to the railroad cars parked alongside. This design of the piers with tracks laid along the top was an efcient way to handle the incoming and outgoing cargo from the old sailing vessels as well as the new steam vessels that were increasingly taking their place. The port again had considerable shipping activity which lasted until, as former postmaster Henry Drake noted, The Wall Street crash of 1929 caused a sudden and sharp decline in foreign and domestic shipping. This decline caused nancial hardship for the Apalachicola Northern Railroad, and as a result, it was sold in 1933 to the Alfred I. DuPont Company. DuPont purchased the railroad line, which now extended from Chattahoochee to Port St. Joe, with the intent of using its infrastructure to build a modern paper mill that would utilize the resources from over 200,000 acres of timber land that was purchased along with the existing rail line. DuPont died in 1935, but as a fulllment of his vision, the St. Joe Paper Company was founded in 1936 as part of the Alfred I. du Pont Testamentary Trust. The construction of the paper mill began in 1936 and was completed in 1938. Also completed in February 1938 were the new St. Joe Paper Company docks. According to Henry Drake, they were made of the latest type of sheet piling driven into the bay bottom, and the docks and wharves were capable of loading and unloading, simultaneously, ve of the largest ocean-going boats in the Gulf of Mexico trade and still have room for a similar handling of two or more smaller and lighter draft vessels. In 1941, on a site just south of the paper mill, which is currently jetty park, the oil docks portion of the port was built along with a large tank farm that extended from the docks to where Centennial Bank is now located. Petroleum products were shipped in from the oil elds of Louisiana and Texas in large tankers and barges. The petroleum was then pumped to Chattanooga, Tenn., and intermediate points via an 8-inch pipeline that was constructed during the same time the oil docks were being built. By 1963, the petroleum distribution center had reached its life cycle and was shut down. In the early 70s, Hess oil purchased the facility and operated it until the mid to late 80s, when it was shut down permanently. From 1938 to the early 1970s, the Port of Port St. Joe enjoyed a brisk national and international trade. In the 1950s, at the height of the port activity, there were ships coming out of and going in to the port on a weekly basis. Beginning in the early 1970s, however, shipping from the port began a steady decline, and by the mid-1980s most shipping activity had ended. By 1996, the natural deep water harbor and the extended channel that led to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico experienced its last visit from a cargo ship. Currently the port bulkhead and surrounding land sits idle awaiting a new birth. The former major users of the port, the St. Joe Paper Mill and Box Plant and the Arizona Chemical Company have been razed so the land can be reclaimed for further use. Also left behind is the essential infrastructure used to support their operations. Water, sewer, electricity and gas are in abundant supply. The AN short-line railroad that connected the Port to the main rail lines of the U.S. will soon be repaired and back in service. A $750,000 state grant for an environmental and engineering study of the shipping channel, a requirement before any dredging can take place, was recently awarded to the Port St. Joe Port Authority with the St. Joe Company providing the required match of $250,000. As a result of a recent formation of a strategic development partnership with the St. Joe Company, the Port of Port St. Joe and the surrounding land and infrastructure are now positioned to once again become a thriving port.

Local Washington County News | A9 Wednesday, September 25, 2013 By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com APALACHICOLA U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland on Thursday shelved a proposal that could have helped safeguard Apalachicola Bays current freshwater supply, opting instead for a resolution request ing Florida, Georgia and Alabama work together on divvying up the available water coming from Lake Lanier near Atlanta. The bays oyster population has been devastated, primarily from the lack of freshwater com ing down the Apalachicola River, which is fed by the lake. The Panama City Republicans amendment would have required the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to get congressional approval be fore diverting more than 5 per cent of the ow, but he pulled back when the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee chairman told him the amend ment went too far. Southerland said the chairman offered a substitute amendment basically edited my amend ment halting its progress. It wasnt all that I wanted but it was a lot more than we had the day before yesterday, he said. The resolution sense of Congress language passed the committee unanimously and was tacked on to the Water Resources Reform Development Act, which cleared the panel. An Apalachicola environmen tal group, however, said the reso lution wont do much to benet the bay. What resulted out of that was not helpful, said Dan Tonsmeire, executive director of Apalachicola Riverkeeper. I mean, what theyve done essentially is say to the Corps that, you know, they need to en courage the three states to get in a compact and work this thing out. Tonsmeire praised Souther lands committee speech but said the legislative action would yield little. He also noted the legisla tion has a long way to go before becoming law. Tonsmeire said even the ini tial amendment would not have helped much; it only would have kept the ow from decreasing more, rather than requiring the Corps to increase it. Southerland, meanwhile, was condent his actions would have an effect. Even though I didnt get ev erything I wanted, I do believe that the sense of Congress lan guage that the chairman allowed to be put in the bill did highlight the inaction of the Corps, he said, and so were trying to put more pressure and up the ante on the Corps. Possible report and hearing Southerland has another plan to spur federal action. He will request a Government Account ability Ofce report on the Corps reduction of water ow to the bay. He said committee chairman Bill Shuster, R-Penn., agreed to help him get the report and made a commitment to hold a hearing in which the Corps would come be fore the full committee to answer questions and respond to the report. I know what that report is go ing to say; its going to say that the Corps of Engineers has been woe ful in addressing the needs of the Apalachicola River Basin, South erland said. Tonsmeire said this plan was really encouraging and the focus must be on pressuring the Corps to care about the bays freshwater needs. He would most like to see a provision in the WRRDA bill re quiring the Corps to increase ow to the bay, but Southerland has not committed to including such language. Meanwhile, the two share com mon ground in their distaste for the Corps. Southerland slammed it during his impassioned commit tee speech, saying, The Corps is the problem. In the past ve decades, water ow down the Apalachicola River has decreased by more than 50 percent, Southerland told the committee. This is a proud region, a place where heritage matters, and its a place on the verge of extinction, he said in his speech. Unity unlikely Tonsmeire said Florida and Georgia are unlikely to work together on dividing the water since Gov. Rick Scott recently announced a lawsuit against the northern neighbor over the dispute. Even without the suit, Georgia would have no reason to bargain because the Corps essentially is giving it everything it wants, Tonsmeire said. When Georgia has the upper hand like that, I dont see any in centive for them to come to the table, he said, adding, the Corps doesnt have a perspective thats going to help Florida at all. As for Southerland, he has dug in for the long ght. He said he was one new soldier in this battle thats been going on for decades. And he said the Florida delegation is unied on this issue all 27 lawmakers, 19 Republicans and eight Democrats, signed on to a letter he sent recently laying out the case. We are still very solidly stick ing together, he said. Now Geor gia, obviously, theyre ghting for their interests.

Beltone Pr omise Southerlands resolution asks states to work together Water proposal watered down ATLANTA (AP) Georgias government might seek to tap into the water that is captured when it invests in local reser voirs or wells, potentially giving ofcials more leverage when dealing with regional needs like drought or negotiating a multistate water dispute. The new guidelines put for ward by Gov. Nathan Deals water supply program govern how state government allocates investment money to water sup ply projects proposed by local governments or agencies. State ofcials are considering how to award about $44 million for such projects. Under the new rules, proj ect applications will get a better chance of earning state money if they give Georgias government a chance to tap into water ows to meet signicant state needs, for example, mitigating drought conditions, protecting water quality or endangered species, or supplementing low-owing streams and rivers. Historically, state water funding has helped local communities meet local water needs, not statewide or regional purposes. Judson Turner, director of Georgias Environmental Protection Division, said new reservoirs and wells should be designed to meet as many needs as possible since building the infrastructure is costly and only so many reservoirs can be placed on the land. Turner compared reservoirs and wells to a bank account that can be lled when rain is ush. The great irony of all of this is that people bristle at the thought of building reservoirs, but everyone knows that in or der to share in times of drought, the bank account needs to be a as big as it can be, Turner said. While not a cure-all, secur ing access to more water might give state government more bargaining chips as it negotiates long-running water disputes with neighboring Alabama and Florida. Leaders in both states accuse North Georgia of taking too much water, leaving too little for wildlife, people and industry further downstream. Florida Gov. Rick Scott re cently accused Georgia of de pleting water ows into the Apalachicola River and the Gulf of Mexico, harming the states oyster shery. Scott said Florida will le a lawsuit this month ask ing that the U.S. Supreme Court determine a way for the states to share water equitably. Georgia ofcials say new reservoirs could allow the state to release water into depleted rivers shared with neighboring states during periods of drought, a view not necessarily shared by the states neighbors. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has said he fears the development of new Georgia reservoirs might fur ther restrict water ows into his state. Under the old nancing sys tem, the investment funding offered by Georgia acted more like a loan with a big end pay ment for the borrower. In return for accepting the states invest ment, Georgias state govern ment received real estate or an ownership stake in a local water supply project. At the end of a negotiated period, likely several decades, the local partner would have to buy out the state, allow ing Georgia to recoup its money. Georgia changes investment rules for water projects

S PORTS www.chipleypaper.com A Section From Staff Reports Chipley falls to Walton in OT DeFUNIAK SPRINGS — Walton made a 2-point conversion; Chipley didn’t. That was the difference in overtime for the Braves. That and quarterback Amos Williams, who seemed to be everywhere for Walton. He completed 15 of 23 passes for 203 yards and ran 20 times for 266 yards and ve touchdowns, including a 99yard run on the rst play of the fourth quarter that tied the score 25-25. In overtime, Williams had a 1-yard touchdown run, and DaQuan Brown ran in a 2-point conversion for a 33-25 lead. Chipley responded with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Finch to Zach Campbell, but the Tigers failed to convert the conversion, and the game was over. Walton (3-1) is at Holmes County on Friday. Chipley (2-1) hosts Port St. Joe. Blountstown remains undefeated SANTA ROSA — Shon Peterson rushed for 147 yards and two touchdowns on only three carries as No. 2-ranked Blountstown bulldozed South Walton 48-14 Friday night in the District 3-1A opener for both schools. Blountstown (4-0, 1-0) rushed for 408 yards and held a 572-210 territorial edge in total yards. Big plays helped the Tigers open a 35-7 bulge by halftime. South Walton tried to respond with quarterback Jonathan Ortner tossing a pair of touchdown passes to Sage Roberts, but was no match for district newcomer Blountstown. Peterson opened the scoring with a 75-yard run. Quarterback Hunter Jordan added a pair of scoring passes, 59 yards to Tripp Taylor and 11 yards to Corin Peterson and it was 21-0 after one quarter. After the rst OrtnerRoberts scoring connection for the Seahawks (2-2, 0-1), Corin Peterson sprinted 38 yards to score, and Dylan Lee’s 1-yard run made it 35-7. Shon Peterson ran 62 yards to score, and teammate Alex Mayorga went over from the 2 to cap the Tigers’ output. Ortner, who passed for 154 yards on 12 of 27 attempts, connected with Roberts for 57 yards for the nal. Roberts had seven receptions for 125 yards, but leading rusher Anthony Gundrum managed only 29 on seven attempts for the Seahawks. Alex Mayorga added 100 yards rushing for the Tigers, and Fabian Solomon had 55 yards on 11 attempts. Jordan completed both of his passes for touchdowns, and Lee was 4 of 7 for 59 yards. Anthony Wyrick led Blountstown with nine tackles, and Jordan had six tackles and a sack. Rutherford 37, Arnold 7 PANAMA CITY BEACH — Dallas Davis led Rutherford to three touchdowns in the second quarter Friday night to erase an early de cit, and the Rams collected their rst victory of the season with a 37-7 win over Arnold at the Mike Gavlak Sports Complex. The victory ended the Rams’ three-game losing streak. Rutherford now is 10 in District 1-5A, a sterling record in light of its overall mark. Arnold suffered its rst loss in four games and also was competing in its district opener. Davis nished with 227 yards on 17-for-28 passing, and he added another 109 yards on 13 carries. He rushed for three touchdowns and threw for another. Arnold seized an early lead moments after Marlin defensive back Tristan Dickenson intercepted a de ected pass at the Arnold 48. Torri Cotton broke loose for a long carry to set up quarterback Adam McAfee’s 5-yard sprint through the middle of the Rams’ defense for a 7-0 lead with 4 minutes, 44 seconds remaining in the rst quarter. Davis scored on a play almost identical to McAfee’s touchdown run, cutting through the Arnold defense on a quarterback keeper out of the shotgun on a 5-yard sprint. That knotted the score at 7-7 with 10 minutes to play in the rst half. Davis gave the Rams their rst lead with another run up the middle, muscling his way to the goal line on a 12-yard touchdown run for a 14-7 advantage with 4:37 remaining before halftime. Rutherford forced a turnover on downs at its 36-yard line on Arnold’s next drive, and Davis steered the Rams down the eld on a sevenplay, 64-yard drive that culminated in a 17-yard touchdown strike to receiver Tre Holmes. The Rams needed just 1:21 to move down the eld and score, and they carried a 21-7 lead into the locker room. Davis cemented his team’s victory with an 11yard touchdown romp on the rst drive of the second half. His score capped an eight-play, 57-yard drive and handed the Rams a 287 lead. ;P II= B= TE ;H = K Q8@ Q8@ Q8@ Q8@ Q8@ Q8@ €" €" €" €" €" €" Q Q Q Q Q Q 22;

A12 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 25, 2013 Special to The Times-Advertiser BONIFAY The Bonifay Blue Devil organization didnt fare as well as the previous weekend, only winning two of the four games played. The 5-7 team posted a loss against Panama City/ Glenwood with a score of 46-36. The 8-10 Blue Devil teams got both of the victo ries. Team Blue took home a nice victory against Glen wood 28-0. Team Blues defense stepped up and totally shut the Panama City team down. Team Gold played in Alford and also got a shutout beating PDL 24-0. Jayden Oxendine scored two touchdowns against the Pirates along with a pair of 2 point conversions. Zane Meadows got himself a TD with William Doyle running in the conversion. The 11-13 Blue Devils were not able to repeat last weeks victory, losing to the larger Glenwood team 46-6. Watching the 11-13 game was reminiscent of David and Goliath, except this time the little guy didnt win. Its not clear if rain was a factor with the two losses on this Saturday, but one thing is for sure those two teams will be putting in a hard week of practice to ready themselves for their next weekend showdown against Alford. All of the Blue devil teams will be playing in Al ford this coming weekend with the Team Gold kicking it off at 9 a.m. against Pana ma City/Glenwood. 547-1907 W ASHINGT ON I HOLMES I JA CKSON V ot ed Best A sian F ood in T riCounty b y the r eaders of the Holmes C oun t y T imesA dv er tiser and W ashingt on C oun t y New s V ot ed Best A sian F ood in Florida b y ur banspoon.c om W e oer authentic V ietna mese fo o d with onl y the fr eshest ingr e dients E v er y thing is made t o or der with no MS G.

But when it comes to an afternoon of pampering at the nail salon, our pets dont typically share our idea of relaxation. Nevertheless, even if they nd it unpleasant and stressful, clipping your pets nails is a crucial grooming technique for their overall health and well-being. Leaving your pets nails untrimmed can lead to pain and discomfort from many different sources. Nails that are too long can get hung on fabric, blankets, towels, etc., and get torn off which is not only painful, but tends to cause a great deal of bleeding, said Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Nails that are too long (especially the dewclaws) can also grow around and into the footpads causing pain and infection. Popular to contrary belief, dogs arent the only pets that require a routine clipping. Our feline friends need some nail pampering on a regular basis as well. Outdoor cats who climb trees keep their own nails short, but with the majority of our cats living indoors, they too need nail trims, Eckman said. They will naturally sharpen their claws if given adequate substrate to do this on (i.e. a scratching post or wood), but may need additional trimming, especially on the back claws. Keep in mind that it is natural for cats to also use scratching posts to mark their scent, and even cats that are declawed will use a scratching post for this purpose. Trimming your pets nails can be done as often as necessary. For dogs, trimming their nails whenever you bathe them can be convenient for both of you. Since we do not typically bathe our cats, a thorough trim every 2 to 4 weeks is plenty. As for the clipper itself, there are several brands, types and sizes to choose from, including scissors, pliers, guillotine, and nail grinders. Some work better on cats (i.e. guillotine) than others, and some are better for larger dogs with thicker nails, said Eckman. Others claim to nd the quick so you dont cause the nail to bleed, but I dont think these work very well. It is best to research which will work best for your pet, as well as test them out to see which style your cat or dog seems most comfortable with. Letting your pet become acclimated to nail clipping at an early age can also help the process go more smoothly. Once they become comfortable with you holding their paws as kittens or puppies, gradually start clipping one or two nails a day, and follow up with lots of positive rewards for their cooperation. Giving them their favorite treats or even a long tummy scratch should do the trick. When trimming the nail, be sure to avoid the quick, or nerves and blood vessels located near the bottom of the nail. Just trimming the excess length will ensure a painless clipping process for all involved. But even with the most painless technique and gradual of introductions, there are pets that seem unable to get over their terror of nail clipping. If your cat or dog falls under this category, it may be helpful to seek help from an assistant to hold down and calm them while you do the deed. If that backres and your pet is still too stressed, then talk to your veterinarian about strategies to help make nail trims less stressful, Eckman said. Just like people, each pet is unique, with various personalities and patience levels. It is important to remember that even though they may not nd their PETicure enjoyable at the time, they will undoubtedly thank you in the long run.

Faith EVENTS How fast the shades of summer have faded Am I getting old or his time passing faster than it used to? It seems I just settle down to do something and before I know it, it is over. Back in the day, a minute had 60 seconds. An hour had 60 minutes. A day had 24 hours. Oh, for those good old days. I am not exactly sure how many seconds a minute has or how many minutes an hour has because it goes by so fast I cannot keep track. Technology has taken over and I for one object. For example, I like looking at my wristwatch and seeing the second hand slowly tick around the dial. Now, we have cell phones with a digital clock. Unlike these digital clocks, all they tell me is what time it is right now. I like to look at a wristwatch and get a whole view of time: past, present and future. I know that a week does not have seven days anymore. I set out on Monday with high hopes of getting something accomplished during the week and by the time I clear my throat, it is Friday afternoon. Where did all that time go? Years ago, the Beatles had a song called Eight Days a Week. Nowadays it is more like three days a week: yesterday, today and tomorrow! Today is tomorrows yesterday and I am not exactly sure how to keep up anymore. By the time I get to tomorrow, I forgot what I was supposed to do today. Then, when I get to today, I cannot remember what I did yesterday. I used to plan a whole week of activity, now that luxury is yesterdays news, or is it tomorrows headlines? I like summer, which may explain why it goes so fast. Maybe I should take a chapter from Murphys Law and say I do not like summer, then it would drag by a without end in sight. Interestingly, the thing I like to do the most goes by so quickly, that which I hate doing drags on for centuries. Which has me thinking maybe I should not voice what I like or do not like? One thing I like about summer, when I can catch my breath and enjoy it, is the fact that it is made up of those lazy, hazy days I enjoy so much. Not having a schedule, not having a deadline, not having anybody telling me what I should or should not do. Ah, those crazy, lazy days of summer. The fact that I did not get much done during the summer is no big deal. If anybody asked me if I got anything accomplished, I just said, Hey, its summer. Relax. I will get to it eventually. Well, eventually has caught up with me and it is called winter. The difference between summer and winter is that during the summer, you can get away with doing nothing but in the winter, there is nothing you can get away with. During the summer my wife will ask me if I have done such and such and I respond by saying, Its summer, Ill get to it. I got plenty of time. During the winter, my wife will remind me of all the things I was supposed to do during the summer and that now I have to do because winter is a coming. Summer is hazy and lazy, while winter is Hurry up and get it done. More is expected from a person during the winter months that during the summer. I object very strenuously to this kind of attitude. Of course, this attitude comes from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has the idea that winter, or at least the beginning of winter, is the time to clean up everything. By everything, she is including the garage. Now that summer is over and the lawn does not need to be mowed anymore, I can, according to her logic, transpose that energy into cleaning up things. Then she will confront me with a favorite saying of hers, Cleanliness is next to godliness. One of these days, when I get up the courage, I am going to ask her to show me where that verse is in the Bible. I kind of think a person can be too clean, like squeaky clean. You know how squeaky gets on peoples nerves, especially mine. My favorite saying is, Laziness is next to everything. Perhaps that is why I like summer so much. There are shades of laziness that can only be exploited in the good old summertime. Some people, like the one who shares a residence with me, things that laziness is a very negative thing. This person honestly believes that if she is not doing something all the time she is lazy. Something good can be said about being lazy. You get to savor a moment of non-activity. The thing I like so much about summer is the activity you do do is only the activity that you want to do like sitting on the back porch, drinking a glass of lemonade, which is what summer is all about. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, understood this concept very well. He says, To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven, (Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV). Time goes by so quickly that a person hardly has enough time to really appreciate the time that they have. Rev. James L.

In Holmes County, the August 2013 rate dropped to 5.9 percent, according to Department of Labor reports, down from 6.5 percent in July and down from the August 2012 unemployment rate of 7.4 percent.

CompleteWaterSystemSales&Services 850-535-4143|Vernon,FL|www.candmpump.comOwner,MichaelSaleeby MemberofNationalGroundWaterAssocation families as the states unemployment rate dropped to 7.0 percent in August, Scott said. Since December 2010, the unemployment rate has dropped 4.1 percentage points, and Florida has created 365,500 new private sector jobs. This is evidence that our pro-growth and business-friendly policies are working. In the same timeframe, the national unemployment rate has dropped 2.0 percentage points, demonstrating Floridas improving economic climate continues to outpace the national recovery. Floridas unemployment rate has now declined year-over-year for 34 consecutive months. The governor said Florida has experienced positive annual job growth for 37 consecutive months. Floridas job growth month-to-month has been positive for 23 of the last 26 months. Florida has created 365,500 new private sector jobs since December 2010, and the state is expected to create almost 1.1 million new jobs by 2018, according to the Florida Economic Estimating Conference. Florida job postings compiled by the Help Wanted OnLine data series from The Conference Board showed 266,467 openings in August 2013 (seasonally adjusted). Florida had the largest over-the-month gain of all states, up 11,644 openings. Florida had the fourth highest number of openings in the nation compared to all states. Also, Florida home sales remain robust as the backlog of existing homes on the market is down by 23 percent from August 2012, Scott said. Florida median home prices were up 18.6 percent over the year in August 2013. A recent U.S. Census Survey reported that Florida experienced an inux of people moving into the state. Florida also led the nation in migrations from Puerto Rico. Florida is also running a trade surplus of more than $24 billion with $86.8 billion in exports and $62.4 billion in imports in 2011, up from $73.1 billion in exports in 2010 and $53.2 billion in imports in 2010, according to the governors report. In August, Floridas 24 Regional Workforce Boards reported more than 41,000 Floridians were placed in jobs. This represents an increase of almost 12,000 placements over the year from August 2012. An individual who receives employment and training assistance through a One-Stop Career Center and nds a job within 180 days is deemed a placement and may be reported by a regional workforce board. Of these individuals, 11,967 previously received Reemployment Assistance. In 2012, more than 426,000 Floridians were placed in jobs, with 111,173 former claimants nding employment.

Tickets are $5 a ticket or $20 for ve tickets. Tickets are available at Wells Fargo Bank in Chipley. The drawing will be held on Monday, Sept. 30. BRIEFS from page A1 Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, earlier in the day about reviewing laws passed last year, he was compelled to ask that this law also be reviewed. Rep. Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City, co-sponsored the legislation. In committee and on the Senate oor, Latvala asked whether claw machines would be affected and was told they wouldnt. Now, however, a 100-employee business in his district has been forced to remove claw machines from all of its major retailers in Florida because of the law, he said. Latvala also said he had asked whether the legislation would pave the way for a new cause of action for lawsuits and was told no, but he said Dave & Busters and Chuck E. Cheeses are being sued by third parties under the law. Law enforcement also is cracking down on the gambling-style arcade machines at bowling alleys, which have been there for years, Latvala said. He said he had been under the impression the law wouldnt affect those machines. We went after Internet cafes, but I think we need to look very closely at was there unintended consequences of what we did, Latvala said. Committee chairman Garrett Richter, R-Naples, agreed and said if there were unintended consequences they should be addressed.STUDy Y re RE Vie IE We E DThe committee spent the bulk of the one-hour meeting Monday reviewing the rst part of a $388,845 gambling study, written by the New Jersey-based Spectrum Gaming Group. The second part of the report is due Oct. 1. The committee reconvenes Oct. 7 and the studys authors will attend and take questions from the panel. Spectrum is not going to be making any (policy) recommendations to you, John Guthrie, the committees staff director, said during his presentation on the study. Guthrie ran through plenty of information already familiar to the committee: Parimutuels are in decline as horse and dog tracks struggle; the bulk of the American public views gambling as acceptable for themselves and others (85 percent according to one study); and many Americans gamble, with 53 percent playing the lottery last year and 32 percent going to a casino. Theres something in the report for every perspective that comes to the debate, Guthrie said. Richter made it clear developing a comprehensive bill, which is the committees plan, would be a long process, but the study would act as the foundation. It will serve as our starting line as we go forward, he said. The process will get hectic. Once the second part of the study is released and information piles up, it will be like drinking out of a re hose, Richter said. NO Mi I Ami MI he HE Arin RIN GSouth Florida senators also expressed displeasure that east Miami-Dade County will not host a public hearing to gather community input for the comprehensive bill. Sen. Gwen Margolis, D-Miami, said that part of the county experiences the most tourism and would be the most affected by gaming changes. It would seem to me we should be hearing from the communities that will be the most affected if anything changes, she said. Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, also agreed. She said Miami has the most parimutuels and some of the oldest facilities in the state. The hearings are being held in Coconut Creek and Lakeland in October and Pensacola and Jacksonville in November. Maybe we could put together a meeting that would take place in those areas of the state that have the longest history and tradition of types of gambling, she said. GAMING from page A1

Are you asking yourself, what is Relay For Life? If so I am going to tell you the story as provided to me by the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and ght back against the disease. At Relay, tams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. Relay began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Washington, ran and walked around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Since then, Relay has grown from a single mans passion to ght cancer into the worlds largest movement to end the disease. Each year, more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with additional communities in 20 other countries, gather to take part in the global phenomenon and raise muchneeded funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. Thanks to Relay participants, the American Cancer Society continues to save lives. No that you know what Relay For Life is you may now be wondering, What happens at Relay For Life events? Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays, no matter where they are held. These traditions help participants celebrate, remember, and ght back.We Celebrate with the Survivors LapRelay starts with a Survivors Lap a inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the tack together and help everyone celebrate the victories weve achieved over cancer. The Survivors Lap is an emotional example of how Relay participants are ensuring that more lives are saved each yearlike those of each individual on the track. We also recognize and celebrate caregivers are Relay For Life. These individuals give their time, love, and support to friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers who face cancer. At Relay, people understand the frustrations and joys of being a caregiver, since the effects of cancer reach far beyond just the person diagnosed.We Remember with the Luminaria CeremonyAfter dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags lled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participant often walk a lap in silence. As people take time to remember, those who have walked alongside others battling cancer can grieve and nd healing. This is a time that truly highlights the importance of defeating this disease.We Fight Back with The Fight Back CeremonyLast, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where we make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the ght against cancer. That personal commitment may be to do something a simple as getting a screening test, quitting smoking, or talking to elected ofcials about cancer. By taking action, people are personally taking steps to save lives and ght back against a disease that takes too much Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back are themes that link all Relay Events together.

All the topics under this heading are equally interesting, but the lead item always serves to remind me just how eeting time is. When retiring 21 years from county judge position, little did I know what a busy schedule I would follow this far down the line. Writing the Prattle has come into my life since retirement. My involvement in the Heritage of Washington County Book, as well as more participation in the Washington County and the Vernon Historical Societies, were also added. Mentioned in the past is that I was named president of the Senior Class in Vernon High School in 1944. Little did I realize the assignment would stick with me the remainder of my life. As president of the 1944 Graduation Class, it fell my lot to head up the committee to plan and preside at class reunions, which became an annual event. It was on April 20, that our class held a reunion celebrating our 69th year since graduating from Vernon High School. The lives of Hester and Perry Wells has been a rollercoaster since the April get together. It is no secret that neither of us were physically able to carry forth the reunion. This probably was obvious to the remaining faithful class mates who did attend. Without going into gory details, Hester had been revisited with the chronic bronchial disorder that she was diagnosed with three years ago. This resulted in her being hospitalized in Dothan on April 23, the third day after our class reunion. Again, sparing graphics, your writer had been overcome with a anemic disorder, which did not put me in the hospital but did hinder in ministering to Hesters needs. My curtailed activities brought a few telephone calls from faithful friends especially when I did not show up for the monthly Chamber of Commerce meetings where I have presided since 1988. Parenthetically, allow me to say that I highly appreciated all of those inquiries on me as well as those checking on Hesters recovery. She was released on May 7 to convalesce at home. Our social calendar was kept to a minimum for the next several weeks. However when June 15th arrived, we simply had to attend the annual Brock Reunion, which has been a must in my life, as well as for Hester since she joined the family almost sixty-one years ago. My readers know my track record with the annual Watermelon Festival, held the last full week end in June. It is known that I retired from my 30-year chairmanship of that event eight years ago. The new chairman, Judge Colby Peel, thankfully keeps the old chairman involved in the event, much to my delight. Hester stood with me again this year and we even made two trips to the watermelon elds for the prize melons, an activity which I have continued to carry out. Much to our liking, invitations continued to come to the Wells household requesting our presence at the special events of friends. On Saturday, July 20, we were invited to join and help surprise and celebrate the 70th birthday of our special friend, Roger Dale Taylor. The event was held in the mammoth Tallahassee Auto Museum in Tallahassee. It was hosted by Dales lovely wife, Beverly, their daughter, Alyson Taylor and the son, Clayton Taylor. The occasion was a well kept secret to Dale and the look on his face as he entered the gigantic banquet hall, lled with friends, left no doubt that he was completed overwhelmed at the event. His brother Kent and wife from Crawfordville, Florida invited Hester and me to join their table. Other Washington County neighbors and friends attending include Marcia Sapp Agner, Jack and Angia Hinson Morris, John Teusink and wife, Barbara Harrell Teusink and H. L. Brown and wife, Liller Brock Brown. The Prattler acknowledges with much humility that H. L. and Dale were the prime movers in having Highway 277 designated as the Judge Perry Wells Highway in 2010, an honor that I shall always treasure. Then on August 1st, we were honored with an invitation to another surprise event, the 50th Wedding Anniversary party of Shelton Carroll and wife, Bobbie Perkins Carroll. It was held at The Oaks restaurant in Marianna and hosted by Tina Carroll Encarnacion, the daughter of the couple and Gwyn Carroll Harris, the sister of Shelton. The celebration was well attended by friends, family and others. The expression on the faces of the honored couple was one of complete surprise as they entered into the banquet room. We have attempted to carry on our other usual expected activities, attending church and visiting the sick folk in our circle. We know we have missed funerals which normally one or both would have attended. This includes my cousin, Wilma Wells Stubbs, who passed away in early August. I missed the funeral of Bill Day, the brother of Paul Day. Bill had just retired from the Washington County School system when he was stricken and passed away after only a few days. Neither could I attend the service for Charles Reeves, who passed away after a lengthy illness. Charles was County Forrester, who retired after a long tenure of service. Pearl Moody Newsoms funeral was missed and I know there are others. Hester regretted missing the funeral for Esto resident and longtime friend of the family, Bill McGowan. Apologizes are extended should this writing begin to sound like a sob story. I felt inclined to report on my absence in so many places during this fast moving year. I am happy to report that both Hester and I are on the mend. With another week or so of iron sulfate in the old system, the Prattler should be back in the full swing of things. Thanks for all the interest shown in our well being and prayers for better days ahead. See you all next week. Ive had a lot of feedback on the articles about old homes in Bonifay. I myself am interested in old homes as they are the history of the people who dwelt there. In the Holiday Restaurant the other day, Ronnie Hagan Gentry and Myrt Sims pointed that I hadnt mentioned the Sims house, one of the oldest in the area. I assured them Id get to it. When I was teaching, one project that I had my 7th grade class do was to interview the owner of the oldest home they knew about and write their stories. Those stories have become a part of our Heritage History of Holmes County. Paul Quattlebaum interviewed James Archie Sims, Jr. the son of the builder of the home. Ronnie, great-grand-daughter, brought me the list of family who grew up there and I also interviewed Eddie Sims a grand-son. The house was built in 1898 by James Archie (Jimbo) Sims, Sr. and Levy [le vee] Yates his father-in-law. Sims was married to Amy Yates and the children born to this couple were James (Jasper) Eddie, James Archie, Jr, C.Yawkey, Ella Brock, Bessie Mae Cooley, Jewel White, Grace Brock and Alice and Katie both of whom died in childhood. The 2 older sons were born in a frame home near the present home, but the other children were born and reared in the new construction. J. Archie and Argie Lee Van Sims four children, Avonelle Sims Hagans, Archie Van, Gene, and Jimmy Sims were also brought up in the home. The house was built from timbers grown on the property, hand cut sills, tree trunks for the foundation, and tongue and groove lumber for the nished oors and twelve or fourteen foot ceilings. I dont remember Mr. Jimbo Sims, but I do remember his wife, my grandmothers cousin Amy. I also remember having Sunday dinner there at the invitation of Argie Lee, a dear friend of my mother. My grandfather, Tom Wells, one of the hardest working men I ever knew had a great respect for Mr. Jimbo Sims. I took that to mean that Sims was also a hard-working, ambitious man. About that same time, my grandparents built a similar sized home farther south toward Bethel Church where they raised their 6 children. Dec 31, 1949, however, that house burned to the ground as my brother Max and cousin Tom Wells were cleaning it out so that Tom could live there. We (my Dad) had used it as a tenant house after my Uncle Alex family moved out. After the death of Argie Lee Sims and Amy Sims and the launch of the grand children, Ella Brock who had built a house next door, bought the home place. Later grandson the late Jimmy Sims and wife Myrtice (Harrison) bought the home, making improvements including a large expansion. They now use it for family reunions and as a weekend retreat. The Sims family is a large in uential family. Daughter Bessie Mae married Gus Cooley and they raised a large family in Panama City. Their son Tommy Cooley is a successful businessman in Panama City being associated with Byrd and Sons Coco Cola Co and other interests. The north-east wing of Bay Medical Center is named for the Cooley family. One of my high school classmates and life-long friend, Dorothy Brock Peters, is the daughter of Grace and John Brock, of the Sand Hills. (to distinguish them from our Brock clan.) We are connected to the Sims family through the Yates family. Sarilda Yates married my greatgreat-Uncle Josh Brock and Jane Yates married his brother, my great grandfather, Tom Brock. Id have to read the Sims History to see the relationship. It is a pleasure to see old homes preserved by family and others. I hope we can nd a way to preserve the old homes in our town as they are important to our history and culture. Notice: The HCHS Reunion will resume at noon Oct. 8 at Baileys Restaurant. Please let Carlton or Kathy Treadwell (547-3526) or me (547-4696) know if you can come. My email is jetison@embarqmail.com. When it comes to defending the legality of his executive order to drug test state employees, Florida Gov. Rick Scott embraces the Han Solo philosophy of reckless abandon: Never tell him the odds. Nevertheless, maneuvering through a crowded asteroid eld at high speed is a walk in the park compared to Scotts chances of surviving the federal courts. Shortly after taking of ce in 2011, Scott signed an executive order mandating random drug tests for some 85,000 state employees and job applicants. When it was challenged in court by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the American Civil Liberties Union, Scott suspended the order, so its never been implemented nor will it likely ever be, at least not in full. Last year, U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro in Miami ruled Scotts policy violated the Fourth Amendments prohibition on unreasonable searches. In May, a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ban on random drug tests on all state employees, saying it almost certainly sweeps far too broadly. However, the court sent the case back to Ungaro on the grounds that legal precedent allows government to randomly test some employees, even those not suspected of illegal drug use. Indeed, courts have ruled that workers in safetysensitive jobs police, re ghters, pilots, train conductors, etc. can be randomly tested, because the government has a compelling interest in protecting the public. Ungaro plans to appoint a special master to come up with a proposed list of those positions. Scott shouldve declared victory albeit a narrow one and called it a day. Last week, though, Charles Trippe, a lawyer representing the governor, requested that Ungaro postpone that process while the state appeals all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The judge about fell out of her chair. The governor has about zero chance of winning that, Ungaro said. Delaying on appeal would push the case into 2014, an election year for Scott. Ungaro seemed mysti ed about the strategy. Do we hope the governor will be voted out of of ce? Ungaro asked. Is this the idea, keep the ball up in the air, pray he is not re-elected? She refused to postpone the process of identifying state jobs that would pass constitutional muster unless Scott agreed to abandon the executive order if the Supreme Court declined to hear the case. Trippe said he couldnt promise that. Scott is holding a pair of 2s and going all in with his chips. It wouldnt be the rst time. Scott already has seen another drug policy he supported, a 2011 law that mandated drug testing for all welfare recipients, shot down by the courts. The 11th Circuit this year said the state had not proved there was any need for the law, that there was no evidence that simply because an applicant for bene ts is having nancial problems, he is also drug addicted or prone to fraudulent and neglectful behavior. The governor vowed to appeal that one all the way to Washington, too. Maybe in his mind hes got nothing to lose. He can make a quixotic stand on an issue that usually garners high public support most people are more concerned about the morality of drug use than the constitutionality of policies. If he loses, he can blame the black-robed masters who care not about substance abuse. Its Floridians who pay the price, though literally. The Orlando Sentinel reported last December that Scott in 2012 cost state taxpayers upward of $1 million in legal appeals. He needs to stop gambling with the publics money, especially when hes the sucker sitting at the table.Retirement brings busy schedulesPERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells A youthful Dale Taylor who, as he stated at his party, the whole world now knows that I am 70 years old.

The millage rate was approved with a vote of four to one, with Board member Debbie Kolmetz voting no. We were able to break down the funding in much more depth than weve ever been able to before, said Finance Ofcer Larry Hawkins. Weve got it broken down to where we can see the cost of each student. Were still not back to the peak we were at in 2008 but were functioning. Local resident Janet Watson was present to ask about improving the school lunch program at Poplar Springs School. Thanks to Mrs. Obama weve had to undergo changes in the lunch rooms, though the only thing thats changed is that theyve added salads, said Watson. My children are coming home hungry. Chairman Rusty Williams agreed that changes could be made to better the lunch selection at Poplar Springs School. I know were following the state guidelines when it comes to providing school lunches, said Superintendent Eddie Dixon. We can look at additional programs and see what we can do. Watson also added that the gyms air conditioning needed to be xed. We had a tournament in a gym without AC, said Watson. I dont believe it is good for the kids to play in an enclosed area at 170 degree Fahrenheit temperatures. The board also approved of the list of out-of-eld teachers for 2013-14. ESE standards have changed this year, said Dixon. The standard is that teachers must be certied in every subject they teach so a few will have to take a little while but theyre working on it. The board also approved of out-of-county/state students, bell schedules and school advisory councils. The next meeting of the Holmes County District School Board is set for 9 a.m. on Oct. 1.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The countdown to the 2013 Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo continues with only eight days to go and Bonifay Kiwanis President Elect Sandy Spear provided some of the latest news at the Bonifay Kiwanis Clubs Sept. 18 meeting. We are just so excited about what this year has to offer, said Spear. We now have tickets available online and weve just sold our rst tickets online. Were also offering for the rst time ever VIP tickets. She said that with the VIP tickets the ticket holders get preferred parking behind the concession stands, a commemorative cushion with specialized seating at the bull gates, someone to run to and from the concession stands for food and beverages and a back arena pass allowing visitors to meet the riders and take pictures with barrel men, clowns, and others. Were limiting it to 100 VIP tickets per night, said Spear. This really gives them a chance to feel like VIPs. This idea was brought to us by our new stock contractor. Another new feature Spear said she was excited about was the largest rafe prize theyve ever offered. Were so excited, said Spear. Weve decided to do a package with two tickets for the two night National Rodeo in Las Vegas, a room at the world famous Las Vegas Hotel The Flamingo, two pairs of Miss Me Jeans and a 50/50 rafe where the money raised will be halved with the winner to help with travel expenses to Las Vegas. Tickets are one for $5, three for $10 or 7 for $20 and sign-up will be held Thursday and Friday night and will be drawn Saturday; you dont have to be present to win. For more information or online ticket purchases, visit www.bonifaykiwanisrodeo.com. Tickets are also available at Community South Credit Union, Docs Market, First Federal Bank of Florida, Bowen Hardware, Piggly Wiggly and the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce.

ARREsSTsSBy VALERIE GARMAN747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com P ANAMA CIT T Y BE E ACH A Back Back Beach Road might be in Panama City Beachs future after all. The city is in the preliminary planning stages of extending the existing portion of Pier Park Drive north of U.S. 98 and routing it to the west to intersect with State 79. The extension of Pier Park Drive potentially could serve as the long-rumored initial stage of a project to create what city ofcials are calling a Back Back Beach Road in Panama City Beach. City Manager Mario Gisbert said the project is important because the extension basically becomes the rst leg of what someday would be what were calling Back Back Beach Road. There are some long-, long-, long-term projects out there. This is looking way out in the future, Gisbert said. Gisbert said the initial project will be recommended to the Florida Department of Transportation by the Bay County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), an agency responsible for examining the county road system and prioritizing projects based on funding availability. So far, no money has been allocated for the proposal. On the TPOs 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan, Back Back Beach Road is mapped out to begin at Richard Jackson Boulevard and run parallel to U.S. 98 west into Walton County, ending on U.S. 98 just west of County 30A. Gisbert said the TPO will elevate the project to cost feasible during its 2014 update. The city also is in discussions with the land owners, The St. Joe Co., regarding the expansion of Pier Park Drive, Gisbert said. This is something the city is always looking at, making Back Beach Road more efcient, especially with all the new development, said Gisbert, who noted the FDOT is considering the project. The existing stretch of Pier Park Drive to the north of Back Beach Road lies directly west of the Pier Park North shopping center site, a 360,000-square-foot development slated to open in the spring. Bay C ounty Commissioner Mike Thomas said the project also would help in easing trafc congestion at State 79 and Back Beach Road during the annual Ironman Triathlon in November. The County Commission approved routes for the race at a meeting Tuesday, despite complaints from residents that the route causes congestion, especially at the busy Back Beach intersection. Thomas agreed the expansion also would help ease trafc in the area year-round. With this new construction over there it will also make a difference, with Pier Park North, Thomas said. It would make a huge difference there, I would imagine. Road would link State 79, Pier ParkPreliminary planning for road underway This is something the city is always looking at, making Back Beach Road more efcient...Mario Gisbert City Manager

Steve Southerland was optimistic Monday as he toured Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and held a subsequent discussion with travel and tourism industry leaders. The good news is we have the worlds most beautiful beaches, weve got the worlds nest seafood and weve got the worlds friendliest people, Southerland said of his native Bay County. If youve got those three things, (visitors are) going to come. Its not if; its when. Airport ofcials led Southerland, a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, on a tour of the facility, including a look into the control tower, baggage screening system and a site ECP Director Parker McClellan said someday could house U.S. Customs and Border Protection. McClellan said the airport hopes to begin targeting air charter services from international destinations in Europe, Canada and South America. Once Panama City gets discovered, the Europeans will jump all over it, McClellan said. Despite a glass-half-full attitude, there was no shaking talk of challenges as the airport plans for the future. Southerland, R-Panama City, said the visit helped him put a looming issue at the airport into perspective the potential defunding of the Federal Aviation Administrations contract tower program, of which ECP participates. The airport would be at risk of losing about $600,000 for tower operations annually if the program is cut from the federal Department of Transportation budget. The program will remain intact for the upcoming scal year, but there is uncertainty down the road. The contract towers are critical to serve the medium and small markets around the country, Southerland said. It gets down to budgeting. In Washington, were looking at numbers on a page, but when we come down here and visit, its bigger than that. State tourism ofcials also expressed concern with dwindling funding for U.S. Customs staff in Floridas many international airports, but they commended Southerland for his sponsorship of the JOLT Act, which will boost opportunities for international travel into the U.S. While Bay County drives a successful seasonal tourism market, Southerland also addressed the need for growing industry in Northwest Florida to support the airport year-round. We cant just depend on one sector, said Southerland, who stressed the need for an economic balance, highlighting strides in Bay Countys medical industry and value in the areas military bases and defense contractors. Obviously, those beautiful beaches, thats going to attract people, Southerland said. We want to make this a full-time destination where people want to raise their children.

LocalA8 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 25, 2013 One of the bulkheads features almost 1,900 linear feet at the ship channel turning basin, and the other offers almost 900 linear feet on the Gulf County Canal. The port is well-suited for bulk and cargo shipments, offering access to rail, the U.S. Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, and state and U.S. highways. One of the rst railways in the country was built to the Port of St. Joe in the 1800s. There are some trestles that need work, and the state is going to step in and help us with that when the time comes, Pitts said. One of the ports greatest assets is the about 260 acres of combined ready-to-be-leased lands next to the bulkheads and the more than 5,000 acres of land in the port environs available for immediate development. Businesses wishing to establish facilities have plenty of room to build and expand. Pitts said the Pensacola port has only 50 acres, and Panama City has 105 acres for its port. The Port Authority is working to secure the funding for the necessary permits to dredge the shipping channel up to 37 feet. The St. Joe Company has partnered with the Port Authority by providing $250,000 in match for a $750,000 state Department of Transportation grant to dredge the port. After the initial dredging, the Army Corps of Engineers will take over, and they will keep it dredged to 37 feet within a plus or minus of 2 feet, Pitts said. The port will not accommodate ships that draw 50 feet, but because of increased international shipping, many smaller ships that are being displaced from other ports will nd their way to Port St. Joe. The AN Railway LLC also is receiving $5 million to rehabilitate about 19 miles of rail and 17 structures including a trestle over the Apalachicola River to accommodate freight trains to and from the port. According to the ports website, the St. Joe Company has signed a letter of intent with Enova Energy Group, a full-service, clean energy development company specializing in development and operations of contracted renewable based assets. Enova has expressed an interest in transporting a minimum of 1 million metric tons per year of wood pellets using the AN Railway to the Port of Port St. Joe for further shipment to overseas markets. Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett said the wood pellet industry also is having a positive effect on local land owners who harvest trees. Prices for pulp was $5 per ton, and they are now $12$18 per ton, Everett said. The St. Joe Company has also signed a letter of intent with Green Circle Bio Energy Inc., a producer of biomass based renewable energy, Pitts said. The LOI anticipates several potential new business development opportunities to create jobs in the Northwest Florida region. Green Circle is interested in leasing a site from St. Joe along the AN Railway to develop a wood pellet production facility. Green Circle operates the worlds second largest wood pellet plant in Cottondale. The wood pellets produced at the new production facility can be transported via truck or AN Railway to the port for further shipment overseas. Both LOIs are contingent upon the Port of Port St. Joe receiving funding to complete maintenance dredging of the shipping channel. Eastern Shipbuilding Group of Panama City also has leased 20 acres at the port site to expand its shipbuilding, vessel construction and repair and industrial steel fabrication operations in the Gulf Coast region. Economic growth takes a regional effort, Everett said. Its not just about one county or another it will take all of us working together, and Port St. Joe is poised to be a big economic player in the region.

History of Port of Port St. JoeFacility has long been important to areas economyStaff ReportsThe St. Joe Star Port St. Joe is on the site of a deep water natural harbor that has served twice as a thriving port over the last 180 years. The rst port development was during the 1830s and early 1840s. The town of St. Joseph was formed by a group of wealthy promoters so it could compete with Apalachicola for the export of large cotton crops and other locally produced commodities such as naval stores and lumber from Georgia and Alabama. Floridas rst railroad was built from Lake Wimico to St. Joseph Bay. Much of the cargo that would normally be shipped to the Port of Apalachicola was now detoured into the lake, where it was ofoaded and transported by rail to ships d ocked at St. Joseph.  During this boom period between 1832 and 1842, the sea shore along St. Joseph was dened by long wharves extending almost 4,000 feet into the sea. The port also had a shipyard with many large warehouses scattered about. During the height of the rst ports existence, it easily competed with well-established ports such as Charleston, S.C., and New Orleans. Most of the exports from the Port at St. Joseph were shipped to New England or to overseas ports in Europe. The port was the growth engine for Old St. Joseph, and a growth engine it was. In a few short years after establishing the port, the town of St. Joseph soared to a population of almost 12,000 people and became the largest city in this new territory. The city was so charming and well known that in 1839, it hosted an assembly of statesmen for the purpose of establishing a state constitution. The fate of St. Joseph and its port, however, had only a short existence. In the summer of 1841, a ship sailed from Cuba into the Port of Port St. Joseph. Along with its cargo, it carried a passenger infected with a disease transmitted primarily from the bite of the mosquito. It was the dreaded disease, yellow fever, and it quickly spread throughout the town. Within a short month, the town was all but deserted. Those the yellow fever did not kill escaped to faraway places, never to return to this former city of death. The town of St. Joseph never recovered from the loss it sustained during this epidemic of yellow fever. The long docks and the waterfront buildings that dotted the shoreline began to deteriorate from lack of maintenance and upkeep. It wasnt long before they w ere completely destroyed.  As told by historian Dale Cox, In September 1844, a hurricane struck St. Joseph, destroying much of what remained of the community and driving away some of the last inhabitants. Except for occasional small supply ships in and out of the port, this natural deep water harbor remained idle and undeveloped until around 1910, when the railroad was again activated. Piers jutting about 1,800 feet into the bay were constructed with railroad tracks so ships could load and unload directly to the railroad cars parked alongside. This design of the piers with tracks laid along the top was an efcient way to handle the incoming and outgoing cargo from the old sailing vessels as well as the new steam vessels that were increasingly taking their place. The port again had considerable shipping activity which lasted until, as former postmaster Henry Drake noted, The Wall Street crash of 1929 caused a sudden and sharp decline in f oreign and domestic shipping.  This decline caused nancial hardship for the Apalachicola Northern Railroad, and as a result, it was sold in 1933 to the Alfred I. DuPont Company. DuPont purchased the railroad line, which now extended from Chattahoochee to Port St. Joe, with the intent of using its infrastructure to build a modern paper mill that would utilize the resources from over 200,000 acres of timber land that was purchased along with the existing rail l ine.  DuPont died in 1935, but as a fulllment of his vision, the St. Joe Paper Company was founded in 1936 as part of the Alfred I. du Pont Testamentary Trust. The construction of the paper mill began in 1936 and was completed in 1938. Also completed in February 1938 were the new St. Joe Paper Company docks. According to Henry Drake, they were made of the latest type of sheet piling driven into the bay bottom, and the docks and wharves were capable of loading and unloading, simultaneously, ve of the largest ocean-going boats in the Gulf of Mexico trade and still have room for a similar handling of two or more smaller and lighter draft vessels. In 1941, on a site just south of the paper mill, which is currently jetty park, the oil docks portion of the port was built along with a large tank farm that extended from the docks to where Centennial Bank is now located. Petroleum products were shipped in from the oil elds of Louisiana and Texas in large tankers and barges. The petroleum was then pumped to Chattanooga, Tenn., and intermediate points via an 8-inch pipeline that was constructed during the same time the o il docks were being built.  By 1963, the petroleum distribution center had reached its life cycle and was shut down. In the early 70s, Hess oil purchased the facility and operated it until the mid to late 80s, when it was shut down permanently. From 1938 to the early 1970s, the Port of Port St. Joe enjoyed a brisk national and international trade. In the 1950s, at the height of the port activity, there were ships coming out of and going in to the port on a weekly basis. Beginning in the early 1970s, however, shipping from the port began a steady decline, and by the mid-1980s most s hipping activity had ended.  By 1996, the natural deep water harbor and the extended channel that led to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico experienced its last visit from a cargo ship. Currently the port bulkhead and surrounding land sits idle awaiting a new birth. The former major users of the port, the St. Joe Paper Mill and Box Plant and the Arizona Chemical Company have been razed so the land can be reclaimed for further use. Also left behind is the essential infrastructure used to support their operations. Water, sewer, electricity and gas are in abundant supply. The AN short-line railroad that connected the Port to the main rail lines of the U.S. will soon be repaired and back in service. A $750,000 state grant for an environmental and engineering study of the shipping channel, a requirement before any dredging can take place, was recently awarded to the Port St. Joe Port Authority with the St. Joe Company providing the required match of $250,000. As a result of a recent formation of a strategic development partnership with the St. Joe Company, the Port of Port St. Joe and the surrounding land and infrastructure are now positioned t o once again become a thriving port.

LocalWashington County News | A9Wednesday, September 25, 2013By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com APALACHICOLA U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland on Thursday shelved a proposal that could have helped safeguard Apalachicola Bays current freshwater supply, opting instead for a resolution requesting Florida, Georgia and Alabama work together on divvying up the available water coming from Lake Lanier near Atlanta. The bays oyster population has been devastated, primarily from the lack of freshwater coming down the Apalachicola River, which is fed by the lake. The Panama City Republicans amendment would have required the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to get congressional approval before diverting more than 5 percent of the ow, but he pulled back when the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee chairman told him the amendment went too far. Southerland said the chairman offered a substitute amendment basically edited my amendment halting its progress. It wasnt all that I wanted but it was a lot more than we had the day before yesterday, he said. The resolution sense of Congress language passed the committee unanimously and was tacked on to the Water Resources Reform Development Act, which cleared the panel. An Apalachicola environmental group, however, said the resolution wont do much to benet the bay. What resulted out of that was not helpful, said Dan Tonsmeire, e xecutive director  of Apalachicola Riverkeeper. I mean, what theyve done essentially is say to the Corps that, you know, they need to encourage the three states to get in a compact and work this thing out. Tonsmeire praised Southerlands committee speech but said the legislative action would yield little. He also noted the legislation has a long way to go before becoming law. Tonsmeire said even the initial amendment would not have helped much; it only would have kept the ow from decreasing more, rather than requiring the Corps to increase it. Southerland, meanwhile, was condent his actions would have an effect. Even though I didnt get everything I wanted, I do believe that the sense of Congress language that the chairman allowed to be put in the bill did highlight the inaction of the Corps, he said, and so were trying to put more pressure and up the ante on the Corps.Possible report and hearing Southerland has another plan to spur federal action. He will request a Government Accountability Ofce report on the Corps reduction of water ow to the bay. He said committee chairman Bill Shuster, R-Penn., agreed to help him get the report and made a commitment to hold a hearing in which the Corps would come before the full committee to answer questions and respond to the report. I know what that report is going to say; its going to say that the Corps of Engineers has been woeful in addressing the needs of the Apalachicola River Basin, Southerland said. Tonsmeire said this plan was really encouraging and the focus must be on pressuring the Corps to care about the bays freshwater needs. He would most like to see a provision in the WRRDA bill requiring the Corps to increase ow to the bay, but Southerland has not committed to including such language. Meanwhile, the two share common ground in their distaste for the Corps. Southerland slammed it during his impassioned committee speech, saying, The Corps is the problem. In the past ve decades, water ow down the Apalachicola River has decreased by more than 50 percent, Southerland told the committee. This is a proud region, a place where heritage matters, and its a place on the verge of extinction, he said in his speech.Unity unlikelyTonsmeire said Florida and Georgia are unlikely to work together on dividing the water since Gov. Rick Scott recently announced a lawsuit against the northern neighbor over the dispute. Even without the suit, Georgia would have no reason to bargain because the Corps essentially is giving it everything it wants, Tonsmeire said. When Georgia has the upper hand like that, I dont see any incentive for them to come to the table, he said, adding, the Corps doesnt have a perspective thats going to help Florida at all. As for Southerland, he has dug in for the long ght. He said he was one new soldier in this battle thats been going on for decades. And he said the Florida delegation is unied on this issue all 27 lawmakers, 19 Republicans and eight Democrats, signed on to a letter he sent recently laying out the case. We are still very solidly sticking together, he said. Now Georgia, obviously, theyre ghting for their interests.

Clean,clear,naturalsoundYourHearingAidscommunicatewitheachother Automaticallyadjustingthemselves. Ear-to-EarSynchronization: Settingsareautomaticallytransferredtotheotheraid.BeltonePromise Southerlands resolution asks states to work togetherWater proposal watered downATLANTA (AP) Georgias government might seek to tap into the water that is captured when it invests in local reservoirs or wells, potentially giving ofcials more leverage when dealing with regional needs like drought or negotiating a multistate water dispute. The new guidelines put forward by Gov. Nathan Deals water supply program govern how state government allocates investment money to water supply projects proposed by local governments or agencies. State ofcials are considering how to award about $44 million for such projects. Under the new rules, project applications will get a better chance of earning state money if they give Georgias government a chance to tap into water ows to meet signicant state needs, for example, mitigating drought conditions, protecting water quality or endangered species, or supplementing low-owing streams and rivers. Historically, state water funding has helped local communities meet local water needs, not statewide or regional purposes. Judson Turner, director of Georgias Environmental Protection Division, said new reservoirs and wells should be designed to meet as many needs as possible since building the infrastructure is costly and only so many reservoirs can be placed on the land. Turner compared reservoirs and wells to a bank account that can be lled when rain is ush. The great irony of all of this is that people bristle at the thought of building reservoirs, but everyone knows that in order to share in times of drought, the bank account needs to be a as big as it can be, Turner said. While not a cure-all, securing access to more water might give state government more bargaining chips as it negotiates long-running water disputes with neighboring Alabama and Florida. Leaders in both states accuse North Georgia of taking too much water, leaving too little for wildlife, people and industry further downstream. Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently accused Georgia of depleting water ows into the Apalachicola River and the Gulf of Mexico, harming the states oyster shery. Scott said Florida will le a lawsuit this month asking that the U.S. Supreme Court determine a way for the states to share water equitably. Georgia ofcials say new reservoirs could allow the state to release water into depleted rivers shared with neighboring states during periods of drought, a view not necessarily shared by the states neighbors. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has said he fears the development of new Georgia reservoirs might further restrict water ows into his state. Under the old nancing system, the investment funding offered by Georgia acted more like a loan with a big end payment for the borrower. In return for accepting the states investment, Georgias state government received real estate or an ownership stake in a local water supply project. At the end of a negotiated period, likely several decades, the local partner would have to buy out the state, allowing Georgia to recoup its money. Georgia changes investment rules for water projects

That was the difference in overtime for the Braves. That and quarterback Amos Williams, who seemed to be everywhere for Walton. He completed 15 of 23 passes for 203 yards and ran 20 times for 266 yards and ve touchdowns, including a 99yard run on the rst play of the fourth quarter that tied the score 25-25. In overtime, Williams had a 1-yard touchdown run, and DaQuan Brown ran in a 2-point conversion for a 33-25 lead. Chipley responded with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Finch to Zach Campbell, but the Tigers failed to convert the conversion, and the game was over. Walton (3-1) is at Holmes County on Friday. Chipley (2-1) hosts Port St. Joe.Blountstown remains undefeatedSANTA ROSA Shon Peterson rushed for 147 yards and two touchdowns on only three carries as No. 2-ranked Blountstown bulldozed South Walton 48-14 Friday night in the District 3-1A opener for both schools. Blountstown (4-0, 1-0) rushed for 408 yards and held a 572-210 territorial edge in total yards. Big plays helped the Tigers open a 35-7 bulge by halftime. South Walton tried to respond with quarterback Jonathan Ortner tossing a pair of touchdown passes to Sage Roberts, but was no match for district newcomer Blountstown. Peterson opened the scoring with a 75-yard run. Quarterback Hunter Jordan added a pair of scoring passes, 59 yards to Tripp Taylor and 11 yards to Corin Peterson and it was 21-0 after one quarter. After the rst OrtnerRoberts scoring connection for the Seahawks (2-2, 0-1), Corin Peterson sprinted 38 yards to score, and Dylan Lees 1-yard run made it 35-7. Shon Peterson ran 62 yards to score, and teammate Alex Mayorga went over from the 2 to cap the Tigers output. Ortner, who passed for 154 yards on 12 of 27 attempts, connected with Roberts for 57 yards for the nal. Roberts had seven receptions for 125 yards, but leading rusher Anthony Gundrum managed only 29 on seven attempts for the Seahawks. Alex Mayorga added 100 yards rushing for the Tigers, and Fabian Solomon had 55 yards on 11 attempts. Jordan completed both of his passes for touchdowns, and Lee was 4 of 7 for 59 yards. Anthony Wyrick led Blountstown with nine tackles, and Jordan had six tackles and a sack.Rutherford 37, Arnold 7PANAMA CITY BEACH Dallas Davis led Rutherford to three touchdowns in the second quarter Friday night to erase an early de cit, and the Rams collected their rst victory of the season with a 37-7 win over Arnold at the Mike Gavlak Sports Complex. The victory ended the Rams three-game losing streak. Rutherford now is 10 in District 1-5A, a sterling record in light of its overall mark. Arnold suffered its rst loss in four games and also was competing in its district opener. Davis nished with 227 yards on 17-for-28 passing, and he added another 109 yards on 13 carries. He rushed for three touchdowns and threw for another. Arnold seized an early lead moments after Marlin defensive back Tristan Dickenson intercepted a de ected pass at the Arnold 48. Torri Cotton broke loose for a long carry to set up quarterback Adam McAfees 5-yard sprint through the middle of the Rams defense for a 7-0 lead with 4 minutes, 44 seconds remaining in the rst quarter. Davis scored on a play almost identical to McAfees touchdown run, cutting through the Arnold defense on a quarterback keeper out of the shotgun on a 5-yard sprint. That knotted the score at 7-7 with 10 minutes to play in the rst half. Davis gave the Rams their rst lead with another run up the middle, muscling his way to the goal line on a 12-yard touchdown run for a 14-7 advantage with 4:37 remaining before halftime. Rutherford forced a turnover on downs at its 36-yard line on Arnolds next drive, and Davis steered the Rams down the eld on a sevenplay, 64-yard drive that culminated in a 17-yard touchdown strike to receiver Tre Holmes. The Rams needed just 1:21 to move down the eld and score, and they carried a 21-7 lead into the locker room. Davis cemented his teams victory with an 11yard touchdown romp on the rst drive of the second half. His score capped an eight-play, 57-yard drive and handed the Rams a 287 lead.

Flying The Who dominates Ebro DerbyStaff ReportEBRO Flying The Who gave the AJN Kennel its second Ebro Derby title when she outdistanced a strong eld on Saturday night as the live racing season came to a close at Ebro Greyhound Park. In a year when the 3/8-mile class at Ebro was very even, Flying The Who emerged in the last two months as the dominant dog at that distance. Flying The Who also dominated the betting going off as a 3-5 favorite. After a brief struggle for the lead with Kelsos Que Sera she drew clear over the latter half of the race to win easily in 36.79 seconds. Flying The Who was the only multiple heat winner during the four-round series, winning three eliminations and nishing third in the other. That emphasized just how even 3/8-mile races were this season. At one point there seemingly was a different winner each time a 3/8th Grade A race was held. Flying The Who changed that when AJN switched her to the longer distance. The Derby was Flying The Whos fth win in her last six starts and 11th of the season. Trained by Terri Suggs, Flying The Who was one of three nalists for owner Vince Berland out of Cypress Creek Kennel. Kelsos Que Sera came in second, and Superior Effect was third.

A12 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 25, 2013Special to The Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY The Bonifay Blue Devil organization didnt fare as well as the previous weekend, only winning two of the four games played. The 5-7 team posted a loss against Panama City/ Glenwood with a score of 46-36. The 8-10 Blue Devil teams got both of the victories. Team Blue took home a nice victory against Glenwood 28-0. Team Blues defense stepped up and totally shut the Panama City team down. Team Gold played in Alford and also got a shutout beating PDL 24-0. Jayden Oxendine scored two touchdowns against the Pirates along with a pair of 2 point conversions. Zane Meadows got himself a TD with William Doyle running in the conversion. The 11-13 Blue Devils were not able to repeat last weeks victory, losing to the larger Glenwood team 46-6. Watching the 11-13 game was reminiscent of David and Goliath, except this time the little guy didnt win. Its not clear if rain was a factor with the two losses on this Saturday, but one thing is for sure those two teams will be putting in a hard week of practice to ready themselves for their next weekend showdown against Alford. All of the Blue devil teams will be playing in Alford this coming weekend with the Team Gold kicking it off at 9 a.m. against Panama City/Glenwood. 547-1907WASHINGTON I HOLMES I JACKSONVotedBestAsianFoodinTri-CountybythereadersoftheHolmesCounty Times-AdvertiserandWashingtonCountyNews VotedBestAsianFoodinFloridabyurbanspoon.comWeoerauthenticVietnamese foodwithonlythefreshest ingredients.Everythingismade toorderwithnoMSG.

But when it comes to an afternoon of pampering at the nail salon, our pets dont typically share our idea of relaxation. Nevertheless, even if they nd it unpleasant and stressful, clipping your pets nails is a crucial grooming technique for their overall health and well-being. Leaving your pets nails untrimmed can lead to pain and discomfort from many different sources. Nails that are too long can get hung on fabric, blankets, towels, etc., and get torn off which is not only painful, but tends to cause a great deal of bleeding, said Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Nails that are too long (especially the dewclaws) can also grow around and into the footpads causing pain and infection. Popular to contrary belief, dogs arent the only pets that require a routine clipping. Our feline friends need some nail pampering on a regular basis as well. Outdoor cats who climb trees keep their own nails short, but with the majority of our cats living indoors, they too need nail trims, Eckman said. They will naturally sharpen their claws if given adequate substrate to do this on (i.e. a scratching post or wood), but may need additional trimming, especially on the back claws. Keep in mind that it is natural for cats to also use scratching posts to mark their scent, and even cats that are declawed will use a scratching post for this purpose. Trimming your pets nails can be done as often as necessary. For dogs, trimming their nails whenever you bathe them can be convenient for both of you. Since we do not typically bathe our cats, a thorough trim every 2 to 4 weeks is plenty. As for the clipper itself, there are several brands, types and sizes to choose from, including scissors, pliers, guillotine, and nail grinders. Some work better on cats (i.e. guillotine) than others, and some are better for larger dogs with thicker nails, said Eckman. Others claim to nd the quick so you dont cause the nail to bleed, but I dont think these work very well. It is best to research which will work best for your pet, as well as test them out to see which style your cat or dog seems most comfortable with. Letting your pet become acclimated to nail clipping at an early age can also help the process go more smoothly. Once they become comfortable with you holding their paws as kittens or puppies, gradually start clipping one or two nails a day, and follow up with lots of positive rewards for their cooperation. Giving them their favorite treats or even a long tummy scratch should do the trick. When trimming the nail, be sure to avoid the quick, or nerves and blood vessels located near the bottom of the nail. Just trimming the excess length will ensure a painless clipping process for all involved. But even with the most painless technique and gradual of introductions, there are pets that seem unable to get over their terror of nail clipping. If your cat or dog falls under this category, it may be helpful to seek help from an assistant to hold down and calm them while you do the deed. If that backres and your pet is still too stressed, then talk to your veterinarian about strategies to help make nail trims less stressful, Eckman said. Just like people, each pet is unique, with various personalities and patience levels. It is important to remember that even though they may not nd their PETicure enjoyable at the time, they will undoubtedly thank you in the long run.

Faith EVENTSHow fast the shades of summer have fadedAm I getting old or his time passing faster than it used to? It seems I just settle down to do something and before I know it, it is over. Back in the day, a minute had 60 seconds. An hour had 60 minutes. A day had 24 hours. Oh, for those good old days. I am not exactly sure how many seconds a minute has or how many minutes an hour has because it goes by so fast I cannot keep track. Technology has taken over and I for one object. For example, I like looking at my wristwatch and seeing the second hand slowly tick around the dial. Now, we have cell phones with a digital clock. Unlike these digital clocks, all they tell me is what time it is right now. I like to look at a wristwatch and get a whole view of time: past, present and future. I know that a week does not have seven days anymore. I set out on Monday with high hopes of getting something accomplished during the week and by the time I clear my throat, it is Friday afternoon. Where did all that time go? Years ago, the Beatles had a song called Eight Days a Week. Nowadays it is more like three days a week: yesterday, today and tomorrow! Today is tomorrows yesterday and I am not exactly sure how to keep up anymore. By the time I get to tomorrow, I forgot what I was supposed to do today. Then, when I get to today, I cannot remember what I did yesterday. I used to plan a whole week of activity, now that luxury is yesterdays news, or is it tomorrows headlines? I like summer, which may explain why it goes so fast. Maybe I should take a chapter from Murphys Law and say I do not like summer, then it would drag by a without end in sight. Interestingly, the thing I like to do the most goes by so quickly, that which I hate doing drags on for centuries. Which has me thinking maybe I should not voice what I like or do not like? One thing I like about summer, when I can catch my breath and enjoy it, is the fact that it is made up of those lazy, hazy days I enjoy so much. Not having a schedule, not having a deadline, not having anybody telling me what I should or should not do. Ah, those crazy, lazy days of summer. The fact that I did not get much done during the summer is no big deal. If anybody asked me if I got anything accomplished, I just said, Hey, its summer. Relax. I will get to it eventually. Well, eventually has caught up with me and it is called winter. The difference between summer and winter is that during the summer, you can get away with doing nothing but in the winter, there is nothing you can get away with. During the summer my wife will ask me if I have done such and such and I respond by saying, Its summer, Ill get to it. I got plenty of time. During the winter, my wife will remind me of all the things I was supposed to do during the summer and that now I have to do because winter is a coming. Summer is hazy and lazy, while winter is Hurry up and get it done. More is expected from a person during the winter months that during the summer. I object very strenuously to this kind of attitude. Of course, this attitude comes from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has the idea that winter, or at least the beginning of winter, is the time to clean up everything. By everything, she is including the garage. Now that summer is over and the lawn does not need to be mowed anymore, I can, according to her logic, transpose that energy into cleaning up things. Then she will confront me with a favorite saying of hers, Cleanliness is next to godliness. One of these days, when I get up the courage, I am going to ask her to show me where that verse is in the Bible. I kind of think a person can be too clean, like squeaky clean. You know how squeaky gets on peoples nerves, especially mine. My favorite saying is, Laziness is next to everything. Perhaps that is why I like summer so much. There are shades of laziness that can only be exploited in the good old summertime. Some people, like the one who shares a residence with me, things that laziness is a very negative thing. This person honestly believes that if she is not doing something all the time she is lazy. Something good can be said about being lazy. You get to savor a moment of non-activity. The thing I like so much about summer is the activity you do do is only the activity that you want to do like sitting on the back porch, drinking a glass of lemonade, which is what summer is all about. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, understood this concept very well. He says, To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven, (Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV). Time goes by so quickly that a person hardly has enough time to really appreciate the time that they have. Rev. James L.
