These meetings are a very important part of the process, where we get to hear your views and what is important to you. We talk so much in the halls of Tallahassee that all we hear are our voices, Gaetz said, and sometimes we think were hearing God. It is really good to get out and hear from you.

Games of horseshoes extended from one yard the other, and Gilley would cut Springers grass, or lend a boiler for a cookout, and expect nothing in return. He aint never met a stranger, said Springers friend Terry Westly, who also knew Gilley only as Pop. At the store just down the road, a cashier who was too busy with work for an interview said she called Gilley Mr. Squeaky because of his voice. She said he had recently bought the van his son took after Gilley, whose age could not be veried Friday, had been killed; before that he would drive his lawnmower to the store and help her restock iceboxes. Graceville police have not released details from the investigation such as a possible motive or evidence they have recovered. What police have said is a neighbor agged down an ofcer at about 10:45 p.m. Thursday to report gunshots. The ofcer found Gilley and Sapp dead from gunshot wounds. The elder Gilleys van was missing, and Graceville police, along with the Jackson County Sheriffs Ofce, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and a tracking team from the local prison, tracked it to where Joseph Gilley allegedly abandoned the van. Gilley was arrested without a struggle around 3:30 a.m. Friday at the home of another relative. He is being held on murder changes. This is not Gilleys rst arrest. He was released from prison in October 2012 after he served less than two years for theft and burglary.

TOTOUR from page A1Florida, which has its ofce in Marianna. Library Director Renae Rountree was the rst speaker, and she reminded Coley and Gaetz of how important state funding is to rural libraries, including the Washington County Public Library. State aid benets the public library in a variety of ways because it can be used for a variety of services, including personnel, library materials, equipment, furniture and automation and technology, she said. As important as state funding is for libraries, state aid has seen a 33 percent reduction since 2001, severely affecting rural library budgets, Rountree said. Please support us and state aid funding for libraries, she told Coley and Gaetz. The states Division of Library and Information Services is also requesting a $500,000 grant that would fund an e-book program that would provide support to K-12 students with electronic access to nonction materials. By the year 2015, the state has said that all instructional materials for students from kindergarten to grade 12 must be provided in an electronic or digital format, Rountree said. We live in an area where there are places with no Internet access, or phone or cellphone access. The library provides that service for a great number of our county residents. Rountree said library usage has steadily increased over the past decade. It seems like the worse the economy gets, the more people come to the library. She said 35,000 people came through the librarys doors last year, and the library processed more than 60,000 transactions. Tamara Hampton, a family support worker supervisor for Healthy Families North Florida, also addressed the delegation seeking continued support of her organizations programs, which provide services to prevent child abuse and neglect. We have a 90 percent reduction rate in child abuse and neglect through our programs, Hampton said. Healthy Families Florida is a nationally accredited home visiting program for expectant parents and parents of newborns experiencing stressful life situations, according to the website healthyfamiliesa.org. The program improves childhood outcomes and increases family self-sufciency by empowering parents through education and community support. Parents voluntarily participate in Healthy Families so they can learn how to recognize and respond to their babies changing developmental needs, use positive discipline techniques, cope with the day-to-day stress of parenting in healthy ways and set and achieve shortand long-term goals. Being a parent is an important and sometimes difcult job, Hampton said. Healthy Families North Florida offers tools to make the job easier, and they work to give families the support they need to reach their goals and build a bright future for their children. Child abuse most often happens in the rst ve years of a childs life, Hampton said. We get in there and work with the parents to give them the encouragement and support. Hampton said the Healthy Families organization has seen its state budget cut by $5 million, and she asked Coley and Gaetz to restore its funding. The legislative delegation thanked the public for participating in the program. I view our ofce as a liaison between the people and state agencies, Coley said, so if you have problems or concerns, please come see us. We are quite successful at moving the process along. We appreciate your calls, emails and visits, Gaetz said. The keep us connected to real people, and it is good to hear real voices, real problems. It keeps us grounded in our communities.

My wife, Cathy, and I are excited to join in local events and groups to become part of our new c ommunity, he said. After a national search and rigorous evaluation process, Bush quickly emerged as the clear frontrunner to succeed Schlenker, known for his staunch commitment to the region. Pats visionary leadership secured the future of NFCH, and he richly deserves this next chapter of his life, said E. Joseph Steier, III, chairman of the board of NFHI and president and CEO of Signature HealthCARE Systems, NFHIs majority stockholder. Mark Bush has the ideal skill set to continue Pats legacy, especially during challenging times for health care. He is a veteran senior leader with extensive experience in hospitals that serve rural populations. He understands how to ensure excellent patient care and to keep NFCH nancially strong so that it can continue to serve and thrive, Bushs hospital experience includes three years as president and CEO at the 140-bed MidMichigan Medical Center in Gratiot, Mich.; and 14 years as executive vice president over MidMichigan Medical Center in Gladwin, Mich., a 25-bed critical access hospital, and two long-term care facilities. He also served as chief nancial ofcer for the Gladwin facilities for 18 years. Bush is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives. He holds a Master of Business Administration degree from DePaul University, Chicago, and is in the process of completing his Doctorate in Healthcare Administration from Central Michigan University.

LocalWashington County News | A3Wednesday, December 4, 2013From Staff ReportsMARIANNA A Jackson County judge acted with judicial vindictiveness when he sentenced a woman to woman to 20 years in prison for her role in a dangerous meth lab explosion, according to recent decision by an appeals court. That doesnt mean Judge William Wright was vindictive in the sense that the word is commonly understood when he sentenced Alicia Baxter to 20 years in prison; it means the circumstances of the sentencing create the presumption that the sentence imposed is improper, the court said. The First District Court of Appeal threw out Baxters sentence in a decision issued Wednesday. She is to be resentenced by a judge who has not been involved in her case or the case against her co-defendant. Judges in Florida are not prohibited from engaging in plea negotiations as long as they are impartial arbiters. Wrights offthe-record comments during the negotiations seem to reect something other than a dispassionate stake in the proceeding, the DCA wrote. That, coupled with the disparity between the offer and Baxters eventual sentence, create a reasonable likelihood Baxters ultimate sentence was imposed in retaliation for exercising her right to a jury trial rather than pleading guilty, the court found. This case is difcult because it is clothed in the emotionally-charged language of judicial vindictiveness, a doctrine so altered from its roots that as here relief may be warranted even if the trial judge was not vindictive as that word is ordinarily used and dened in the dictionary, the ruling said. Baxter and her boyfriend started a re in a Marianna hotel room when their shakeand-bake meth lab exploded. Baxters boyfriend was burned and the hotel, which was booked to capacity, was evacuated. She was charged with attempting to manufacture a controlled substance, possession of a listed chemical and arson of an occupied structure. Her boyfriend faced similar charges, and they were both offered similar plea deals: a year in the county jail followed by several years of probation. Her boyfriend took the deal. Baxter accepted the deal too, and Wright sentenced her as he said he would, but she withdrew her plea before the end of the hearing. Wright warned her she faced a possible maximum sentence of 50 years if she went to trial. Baxter said she understood. Its withdrawn. Set it for trial, Wright said. There aint no more talking. That day, Baxter left the courthouse and threw up while her public defender talked with Wright. She wanted to take the deal, the attorney said, but Wright decided not to go with through with another hearing that day because Baxter was ill. The next day, Baxter returned to court and apologized, saying she had been nervous. At some point that day, Wright told her attorney hed changed his mind and wouldnt accept the plea. Baxter was eventually convicted by a jury. Her sentence was 20 times greater than her boyfriends. Throughout negotiations, Wright made off-the-record comments to attorneys that cops didnt like the deal Baxter was being offered, and that the offer had been extended for the benet of Baxters public defender, the court said. The First DCA found that Wrights eventual decision that everyone should just do their jobs was commendable.

Financing Arranged (WAC) Meth conviction tossed by appeals courtBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com GRACEVILLE Multiple agencies throughout Holmes County joined together on Nov. 25 for an Active Shooter Functional Exercise held at Poplar Springs High School and hosted by the Holmes County Emergency Management. Principals, school staff, school board members, emergency management and law enforcement alike gathered for a jointeffort exercise to prepare them in case the unthinkable situation of a school shooter should ever happen. Wed like to think that it would never happen here and it would never happen to us, said Eddie Dixon, superintendent of Holmes County schools. But when you see the interviews after something like this happens the most you every hear is how they didnt think that it would ever happen in their community and how it was done by people they would have never thought capable of doing what they did. We just want to be ready. Holmes County Emergency Management enlisted the help of Disasters, Strategies and Ideas Group, LLC for planning, prepping, setting the drill and evaluating the response of the participants during the drill. These exercises are to keep your minds gears turning with the three key words, which are run, hide and ght, said Terry Schenk, Project Manager/Exercise Director of Disasters, Strategies and Ideas Group, LLC. Too many times, when faced with a crisis situation, people will freeze and not move but were going to go through the steps to keep you thinking on your feet. The day started with an outline of what the exercise was and why it was important as well as an introduction to the itinerary for that day. The day continued with practical exercises with a scenario set up where the staff did not know where or how the one playing the shooter was going to come in and after the exercise they were evaluated on their response and went through a briefing for improvements that should be made. We assessed the schools lockdown measures and the teachers actions, said Wanda Stafford, Emergency Management Director for Holmes County and the coordinator for the exercise. The school administrators wanted to evaluate reactions to know where the school security measures really stand in an event of this magnitude. Holmes County Active Shooter Exercise provided the opportunity to test a wide range of skills, response tactics and security measures.Holmes County prepares with mock shooting at Poplar SpringsCecilia ECILIA SPears EARS | The NewsMultiple agencies throughout Holmes County joined together on Nov. 25 for an Active Shooter Functional Exercise put on by the Holmes County Emergency Management.

This home still stands and is kept and maintained by our sister, Muriel Wells Turner, and husband, Roy, as a Mecca, lighthouse, beacon, memorial and shrine, for the offspring of Hugh Thomas Wells and Marie Harris Wells. It was the desire of our parents that Muriel become owner of the old farm home, plus her share of the acreage owned by them. All of the siblings shared in ownership of a parcel of the open land our parents possessed at the time of their death. This year, Maria, the oldest daughter of Muriel, put together a Thanksgiving evening festive bon re inviting all the cousins that being the grandchildren of Hugh and Marie, to gather at the old home. Cousin Hiran Tison dug the pit for the re and provided ample kindling and rewood. The invitation was extended to the succeeding generation of youngsters, plus any adult to chose to attend. Included in the fun event was story telling, food and merriment, including string music by Hiram and Glen Tison, joined by Steven Wells and Emory Wells. The entire cousins ensemble sang the songs remembered from their grandfathers repertoire of music, including: The old man he was chasing his son round the barn, he was chasing his son round the barn, and as he was chasing his son round the barn, he was chasing his son round the barn! A second number goes like this: Hey, uncle Johnny, dont you want to buy my dog? He wont catch a chicken but he will catch a hog. Hes a nice little poodle and he plays yankee doodle-and he makes good sausage meatand he make good sausage meat! The Prattler recommends that you need not look for these recordings in music stores! A total of 44 came to enjoy the extravaganza, including the food, which was served in the open carport near the gigantic bon re. The chilly night brought out the coats and sweaters for attendees and also caused the very young to seek warmth around the heaters in the home. Older ones departed early for the heated comfort of their own homes. All four of our sons joined the cousins get together, Hester and I, along with all of the other siblings, allowed what may become an annual gathering for the third generation, to carry out the party all on their own. The two of us, along with Max and Joyce, did join Muriel and Roy for the Friday night after The bon re scene with Lucas McLean Wells, Perry Wells II, Emory Wells, Melanie Russ Brown and the mother of the hostess, Maria, our sister Muriel Wells Turner.Holiday leads to thoughts of home PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Dear Editor, It was recently reported Ms. Debbie Kolmetz of the Holmes County School Board tried, once again, to make available to the taxpayers audio recordings of meetings and the quali cations be made available to board members before voting on personnel moves. Both are excellent suggestions. I was surprised quali cations were not known to board members. Both suggestions were not adopted. An important part of the hiring/promoting process is quali cations. One board member has a small business, another members husband had/had a small business. I nd it hard to believe quali cations were not and important factor in their businesses. Why should Holmes County Schools be different? Dick BashtBonifay Our VIEWQuali cations questionSo much of my life is controlled by cats I thought I might as well write some of the cat-ventures and cattastrophes of my life. Recently, there have been several. Last week, my friend Paula asked me to pick up her two coal black half grown kittens from the vet where she was taking them for spaying. She does so many things for me including feeding and taking care of our cats when we are gone that I was happy to oblige. I brought them home and left them in the carrier for an hour or so, then I released them on my glassed in porch and went on to the beauty shop. When I returned, the screen had been knocked out and two black cats were nowhere to be found. Soon, Jack spotted one being chased by Casper, one of our white outside cats, so we easily rescued Sister. But Onyx was nowhere to be seen. We scoured our and the neighbors property. I know why my brother Clyde always named his hunting dogs with a name beginning with a consonant. Try calling loudly, Onyx. I made at least six forays outside calling Onyx between the time Paula left with Sister after giving up the hunt and bed time. I dont know what the neighbors may have thought of this old lady outside calling kitty-kittykitty at 10 p.m. The next morning, Jack called me to come and look as he went out to get the paper. Onyx was underneath the sofa on the porch. She was there all the time, so black we couldnt see her. The next day, Maria, one of our inside cats decided to be an outside cat and I repeated the calling and searching the property, but when darkness fell, she showed up. It turned out, however, that she was ill and had to spend the next night with Dr. Brad. Maria is the most eccentric cat weve ever been owned by, and I think the reason for her illness was the addition of a bob tailed kitten with Siamese markings named Tebo to our menagerie. (No disrespect to Tim) One of her eccentricities is the adoption of three stuffed kittens which I already had, not to play with as Macie, my tabby Manx does. But, Maria calls them at bedtime with her mama cat call which she was deprived the privilege of ever using with real babies. Then, she selects one, the green, the pink, or the print stuffed kitten to bring to our bed. She is the talkingest cat weve ever owned. She talks sympatheticly when we cough or sneeze. She complains when I load or unload the dishwasher before she leaves the room in a huff. The kitten Tebo reminds us very much of Trouble, the 17 year old part ame point Siamese that was given to me by Jamie Owen. Tebo came to us from Kim Hudson Barber a Holmes County High School grad who is the Agri-Science teacher and FFA Advisor at Malone. Tebos doing his best to help me type this and nding functions on my computer that I havent discovered yet. His function was to have been replacing Trouble who is hanging on tenaciously. Trouble replaced Tip number two. Tip was a huge Siamese colored male with white tuxedo markings and white feet and tail tip. He was Jacks loyal companion, following him all over the blueberry eld like a dog. Maryanne Elam always asked me, Hows Tip? He lived to a ripe old age. My claim to fame with Marianne was giving her a black and white long haired PercyCat. Percy and Tip were the offspring of Crystal, a white semi long haired HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison CATventures and CATastrophesSee HAPPY A5If theres a hurricane season without hurricanes, did it actually happen? That metaphysical question almost became reality this year when the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season concluded Saturday not with a bang, but a whimper. Although forecasters predicted 13 to 20 named storms, including seven to 11 hurricanes, only two canes materialized Humberto and Ingrid, both a weak Category 1. That made this years storm season the mildest in 31 years. That is of course reason to celebrate. But its also worth contemplating why the experts were about as close to the mark as an Alabama eld goal kicker. It has now been eight years since a hurricane made landfall in Florida. That lull follows an especially active period in which the state was hammered by seven hurricanes from 2004-05. During that time, some blamed the surge in storms on man-made climate change, and predicted that would become the norm (this despite the fact that numerous studies in recent years have found no evidence that the number of hurricanes and Paci c typhoons is increasing because of the rise in global temperatures, although climatologists theorize that their strength may increase). Then, suddenly, relative silence. Its easy to forget that prior to the 2004 increase in hurricanes, Florida hadnt suffered even a Category 1 landfall since 1999. So contrary to the apocalyptic predictions, the weather remains cyclical and subject to several factors. For instance, this year meteorologists are blaming the sparse number of hurricanes on increased wind shear and additional dust from the Sahara Desert that denied the atmosphere the moisture it needs to breed hurricanes. Its foolish to use single data points be it one storm, one year or even a short period to prove or disprove climate trends, which unfold over decades, if not centuries. Both sides in the debate do it, from every violent storm and heat wave being trumpeted as the harbinger of a hotter earth, to cooler temperatures and calm skies supposedly debunking global warming alarmists. The 2013 hurricane season, though, can be a useful reminder to take the annual forecasts with a shaker full of salt. They grab headlines, especially in Florida, and make for engaging parlor banter much the way preseason NFL predictions do. But despite the scienti c credentials of the prognosticators, they still are subject to the many variables of Mother Nature. They can made educated guesses, but they dont have crystal balls. The risk with these forecasts that fall way short, and with hurricaneless hurricane seasons, is that the public will grow complacent. The predictors become doomsayers to be mocked or ignored, and that attitude bleeds into storm forecasting when the weather actually turns dangerous. Threats arent taken as seriously as they should. People dont take precautions or evacuate because they believe its another false alarm. Those bets have paid off the last eight years. But at some point that winning streak will end, and the consequences of losing could be enormous. Dont take 2013 for granted.The calm before the stormsSee PRATTLE A5

By Class of 2014 Cadet G Ab B RIEL KORNEg G AY Contributing Writer WEST POINT, N.Y. Its a simple fact of life at the U.S. Military Academy that cadets run a lot. And sometimes they volunteer to run more when its for a good cause. Fifty cadets from Co. C1 traveled to New York City on Oct. 6 to represent the Corps of Cadets in supporting Charleys Fund at the 4th annual Race Against Time. Before participating in the half marathon, the cadets arrived early to join volunteers in setting up the event at Central Park. A few hours later, they joined a sea of green as hundreds raced wearing the emerald-colored race shirts printed with the slogan I believe on the back. Charleys Fund is an organization dedicated to funding research to nd a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is a disease that affects young boys with a 100 percent mortality rate. The disease does not affect their minds, just their ability to grow muscles. By the ages of 10-12 the boys must use wheelchairs to get around; and, on average, the disease claims their lives around the age of 22. Class of 2014 Cadet Preston Wilson organized the volunteer opportunity for his company and established fundraising web pages to raise money for Charleys Fund. With the strong support of friends and family, as well as the support of a matching grant given to Charleys Fund, the company raised more than $36,000 dollars in support of the organization. Preston, a 2010 graduate of Chipley High School, is the son of Joe and Kim Wilson of Chipley. C-1 ran in honor of Wilsons eight-year-old cousin, Davis Cox, who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Davis attended the event and inspired the cadets with his enthusiasm for life. Davis is the son of Sam and Kristi Cox of Chipley. The cadets of C-1 upheld the values of their profession by working hard to ght a horrible disease and refusing to leave children like Davis and eleven-yearold Charley (whom the organization is named after) behind. All of the cadets nished the run, and for a moment in time, linked arms with family and friends to support those affected by the disease in a seless manner. We would like to thank everybody who supported us in this endeavor and hope this support to Charleys Fund will continue in the coming years, Wilson said.Cadets support Charleys Fund cat that my sister Muriel brought us from Marianna. She was a wonderful mother cat and we blessed a lot of homes with, Siamese colored, white, and black and white kittens, some short haired and some with long hair. Tip replaced Old Tip, a black and white male also devoted to my husband. He disappeared shortly after we opened the blueberry business. Tony Polino who worked for us thought he had seen him over in West Bonifay so we spent many late evenings driving around that neighborhood calling Tip, but he never returned. It would be impossible to recall all the cats that have blessed our family. Some stand out, however. There was Princess the long haired white cat with a blue eye and a hazel eye that Clyde and Teena, my brother and sister-in-law, gave to Hiram when he was about 10. She saw him through high school and part of college and populated the area with many beautiful kittens. Although she was deaf, she was a good mother and left us with Ali and Angel. Cindy had a black and white mama kitty named Amy who taught her all about the facts of life. Cindy attended many kitten birthings. Once when Cindy had a group of her little girl friends over for a birthday party, Amy climbed up in a chair among the party girls and began delivering kittens. The last nal effort of Amys was the delivery of one puny baby one weekend while Cindy was home from college. I had not known that the cat was expecting. Glen was not as much of a cat lover. He preferred dogs. He only claimed one solid black cat, Devil, who ate a blue tailed lizard and carried a crooked neck nerve damage for the rest of his life. I should never have started this, because, like the Song of Scheherozod, it has no ending. Perhaps Ill take a lesson from my brother, Perry, and do a series. Mine will be The cats Ive known. HAPPY from page A4Thanksgiving supper of a pot luck bean soup and home made cornbread prepared as only Muriel can bake the delicacy so near to our mother Maries recipe. This event has become a tradition since the passing of both of our parents. Due to other demands of the holiday, plus sickness, the Thanksgiving night event did not draw the crowds as did the outdoor bon re. Referring to the adjectives describing the old home place in the rst paragraph in a number of ways, it is still felt that this location of our parents one and only home throughout their seventy-two years together, still serves well in all of categories listed. The American Heritage Dictionary gives one denition of Mecca as a place regarded as a desirable goal. A Lighthouse is dened as a tall structure topped by a powerful light used to guide ships. A strict interpretation of this application to our old home would best be seen in a gurative way. One description of beacon, is listed as anything that warns or guides, which may require some broad application, but seems to t for the purpose we are mentioning here. The word memorial has a dictionary denition of the memory of a person or event, which, in this context, applies to more than one person and more than one event. In our every day living, we had inuential grandparents on both sides, and other relatives, plus a host of others whose home was our home and who made monumental contributions to our development. Page 362 of the Heritage of Washington County book has an article entitled Hugh Thomas Wells and Marie Harris Wells, Part II, and it uses as a theme if these walls could talk. It tells of the multitude of people, including some hitchhikers picked up off the highway with no money and no job, who came into our home and made some valuable impressions on all of our lives. The bonre activities obviously adds another chapter to the talking walls theory. Hopefully it, and other worthwhile, positive events, will continue to add proper memorials to our parents memory to show appreciation for the efforts made in child rearing and providing a home for eight children in some rather trying economic times. An adjective close to a memorial is shrine. Its denition is: A site or object hallowed or revered for its history or association. A few years ago, a memorial sign was placed in front of our old home, in an effort initiated by our oldest brother, Jim, and the youngest one, Max, with the following wording: THE HOME PLACE OF HUGH AND MARIE WELLS, ESTABLISHED IN 1925. The siblings and other family members held a dedication ceremony to ofcially unveil this sign to those who pass by and view what I openly call a sacred monument to the parents who worked hard, sacriced, and taught us the best they knew about life. See you all next week.

Funded by the 2009 federal stimulus package, the $24 million project will bring broadband Internet access to eight underserved counties in the Panhandle, including Calhoun, Gulf, Franklin, Holmes, Jackson, Washington, Liberty and Gadsden counties. Slated for an end-of-the-year completion, the project also will provide coverage for the south-central Florida counties of DeSoto, Hardee, Glades, Hendry, Highlands and Okeechobee and the community of Immokalee. Known as the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance (FRBA), the initiative is a partnership between Opportunity Florida and the Florida Rural Heartland Economic Development Initiative, agencies that serve areas of critical economic concern in the state. Jim Brook, executive director of Opportunity Florida representing the rural Panhandle, said one of the main goals is to provide costeffective, high-speed Internet directly to community anchor institutions, such as public schools, libraries, local governments and emergency services. It will provide additional capacity, at hopefully affordable rates, Brook said. According to data from the FRBA, only 39 percent of these rural areas have access to broadband service, yet they represent about 20 percent of Floridas land mass.

Something else just as common and goes hand in hand with the football at this age level is the peewee cheerleaders. This year it was decided that it was time to give these girls the opportunity to compete. The event was held at the Holmes County High School gym on Nov. 23 and the doors opened at 8 a.m. and the competition starting at 9 a.m. The event took about 3 hours to wrap it up with trophies given to the top 3 teams in each age group. Those involved with the organization of the event consider it a great success. Multiple age groups participated from the following Teams, Alford Eagles, Bethlehem, Blue Devils, Popular Springs, PDL Pirates, and Panama City Glenwood.11-13 PDL Pirates cheerleading squad took rst place.

PEEWEE CHEERLEADING COMPETITIONSpecial to Halifax Media GroupBONIFAY Saturday, Nov. 23, saw Pee Wee football action starting later than usual with the rst game at 2:30 p.m. It was the championship game for the 5-7 age group, and featured the Holmes County Blue Devils against the Alford Eagles. Both of these teams fought a tough game with this game lasting almost two hours, which is very long for one from this age group. But when it was over the Blue Devils came up short and the Eagles won this years championship game. The next game was to determine the winner for the 8-10 age group, and was the Holmes County Blue Devils against the Panama City/Glenwood Bulldogs. At rst it appeared this might be a really competitive game but then the Blue devils got rolling and it looked like every other game this team has played this year with the exception that this time 6 points did get scored against them. But that is the only points scored against this Blue Devil Team all year. Kalen Evans rushed for 3 touchdowns and threw one touchdown reception to EJ Reddice. The defense stood very strong and only allowed one touchdown. The nal score was 28-6. These Blue Devils won their championship coming off with just about the perfect season. When the 8-10 team were done it was time for the 11-13 teams to play. It was the undefeated Ponce de Leon Pirates against the Glenwwod Bulldogs. This game was a ght till the very end. The Bulldogs got up rst with 8 points and held that lead for a while. But once the Pirates started putting on the points they didnt stop until there were 22 on the board. The game took a sober note when a player from Panama Citys older team was down after being tackled particularly hard. Prayers were answered and good news received that he had only a mild concussion and apparently no spinal injuries. The nal score was 22-8, and a win for PDL. The 11-13 Pirates won their championship and had an overall record this year of 8-0.

The senior quarterback accounted for three touchdowns in leading the topranked Tigers over Cottondale 42-0 in the Class 1A state semi nal Friday. Blountstown improved to 13-0 and remained unchallenged in what has been a dominant run. Cottondale fell woefully short in its rst state semi nal appearance and nished 8-5. Cottondale pulled off two upsets to reach this stage for the rst time, but it met the fate of Liberty County and Port St. Joe in previous weeks. Blountstown will play Trenton for the state title in Orlando this Friday. Trenton edged Dixie County 17-14 in Fridays other semi nal. We kept it going all year, Jordan said. All the hard work has put us here. Jordan scored from 2 yards out to give the Tigers a boost 35 seconds into the game. He also scrambled for a 10-yard score late in the rst quarter to give Blountstown a 21-0 lead. Further proof of the Tigers un appable demeanor came two plays after an illegal block penalty. Jordan looked left and lobbed a pass to Shon Peterson, who took it 16 yards for a four-touchdown lead. The bus was rmly warmed for Orlando by then. The Tigers entered the season as regional favorites. They proved the point by outscoring playoff opponents 116-6 with two shutouts. We had the whole town looking to us, said Jordan, whose 28 total yards came on his three scores. Its like a weight off our shoulders. Cottondales offense met the impenetrable Blountstown defense, also headed by Jordan, and nished with 102 yards. Rushing leader Norris Calhoun, the backbone of two previous postseason comebacks, was limited to 32 yards on 17 carries. The Hornets squandered a chance to score in the second quarter on what was their best drive. Trailing 21-0, they moved to the Tigers 9 in 13 plays. A holding penalty, 10-yard loss on a reverse and an interception provided a narrative for the dif cult night. Alex Mayorga added an exclamation point to the tale with a 62-yard run on the next play. Peterson scored four plays later. Cottondales Cinderella run of cially ended 30 minutes later under a running clock. Mayorga led all rushers with 113 yards. Blountstown was balanced again with seven ballcarriers in the rst half. Its been a successful formula and one Blountstown is packing for Orlando. Were gonna do what weve done this season, Jordan said. Run the ball and pound away on defense. Blountstown advanced to its rst state nal since 2004 when it fell to Fort Meade in Class 1A. Trenton played in last years state championship game before losing to Bratt Northview.Class 1A semi nal: Blountstown Tigers roll over Cottondale HornetsBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com BLOUNTSTOWN Coaches dont like when you label their teams as favorites. They like to let them do the talking on the eld. In that case, Blountstown should have a lot to say this season. The Tigers moved from District 4-1A to 3-1A and despite playing alongside Holmes County, Chipley, South Walton and Bozeman, are in line to challenge for a playoff spot and title. An experienced group of 10 seniors and 12 juniors will lead Blountstown, which advanced to the second round of the playoffs in 2012. The Tigers will go as far as Hunter Jordan and Javakiel Brigham take them on offense and defense. Thats not to say there arent other potent pieces aside from those seniors, but their production will be key in determining Blountstowns fate. Jordan returns at quarterback after throwing for 838 yards and rushing for 476 as a junior. He also will line up other places on offense and will see more time on defense at linebacker and on the line, his father and Blountstown coach Greg Jordan said. Hes 240-245, a big boy and will do some different things, Coach Jordan said. Hes gonna play some tight end and move around a bit and hell play more defense. I didnt let him hardly play defense (as a junior) just to keep him healthy. But its his last year and I dont want him to have any regrets. Theres little doubt the elder Jordan also wants his son to play a variety of positions to give college scouts more to evaluate. Eyes also will be trained on Brigham, who Jordan expects to again lead the team in tackles (91 last season) and will move from tailback to fullback. Brigham leads all returners with 660 yards rushing and added three touchdowns. He will be used less in motion at fullback as Coach Jordan tries to ration his energy. That will save him a lot, Jordan said. Well try to rest these guys on offense so they can be out there on defense. Hunter Jordan will earn a series or two of rest as junior Dillon Lee works more at quarterback. Coach Jordan is con dent in the replacement and said hes improved. Brother tandems of Corin and Shontayvious Peterson and Alex (245 yards, four TDs) and Justin Mayorga will rotate at wing and running back. Junior Fabion Solomon will back up Brigham at fullback. Theres a little bit of depth in the back eld, at least a quality backup at each of those positions, Jordan said. Its critical to keep those guys out there on the eld. Blountstowns offensive line will be a strength, Jordan said. The group is paced by senior center Jay Williams and junior tackles Tommy Futch and Cole Taylor at 310 and 292 pounds, respectively. Juniors Dewayne Larramore and C.J. Hires complete the line. The Tigers have the luxury of only needing one offensive lineman rotating to play both ways the majority of the time on defense, with Stephen Matthews and Marcus Lewis starting at the down positions. Hunter Jordan and Brigham anchor the second and third tiers of the unit, which also include Shontayvious Peterson at linebacker and Corin Peterson, Lee and junior Tanner Peacock in the secondary. Blountstown had ve shutouts last season, including blanking Holmes County 10-0 in the regional opener. The Tigers gave up fewer than 20 points in three of their ve losses and scored only one touchdown in each. Jordan shied away from calling Blountstown a favorite in the district and region, but hes aware expectations are high. Our biggest thing, like all 1A schools, is the injury bug, he said. You can go from a potentially good season to a bad one quickly. If we keep them healthy we have a shot to make a run at it. We have a pretty good group. Theres con dence going in, we had a good spring and a good summer and were looking forward and see how it goes.2013 Preview: Blountstown poised for run at title HEATHER LEIPHART | The News HeraldShaundre Macroy.HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Shontavious Peterson running for a touchdown.

ReEHWInNKelELBy ZACK McDONALD747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.com COTTONDALE Community members are coming together after ames and smoke ravaged a church in the wake of a holiday-season Sunday service. Fireghters closed a section of U.S. 231 on Nov. 25 to reach adjacent re hydrants after receiving reports of thick, black smoke coming from First Baptist Church of Cottondale about 5:45 a.m. In an early Thanksgiving service the evening before, Pastor Jack Brock preached a sermon thanking God in good times and bad, he said. Little did he know the morning would hold one of those bad times. Brocks assessment of the damage was not optimistic. Much of what he had seen by midday Monday was not salvageable. He was told the building might have to be razed. But at least none of his 130-person congregation had been in the church during the blaze, he said. Were praising the Lord nobody was hurt, Brock said. The church is the body the people and weve got a wonderful fellowship that will rebuild. Were stronger than this, and God is stronger than anything. Brock, the churchs pastor for 27 years, was visibly shaken by the nights events as members of the youth ministry brought out heat-damaged musical instruments, water-logged Bibles and soot-covered, framed portraits in a procession leading to the Youth and Family Ministry Center building next door. Fire crews rst arrived at the blaze just after 5:45 a.m., as smoke billowed from the roof of a classroom and ofce building that separated the chapel and the fellowship hall. Flames were not visible from outside but raged within the center building when reghters poured in, according to Will Arroyo, assistant chief of the Cottondale Fire Department. The State Fire Marshals Ofce had not determined the cause of the re Monday, but Arroyo suspected the re originated in a rst oor utility room, moved up the stairway and eventually spread to the attic which is connected to the chapel. Its pretty safe to say this building is lost inside, Arroyo said. Some of the main structure of the roof is damaged as well, and that might be hard to replace. Fireghters cut a vent in the roof to salvage other areas connected by the attic. However, heat and smoke already had melted or blackened everything within the chapel. Boot imprints cut through black soot in the churchs vestibule, revealing the white tile underneath the tracks of reghters. Soot covered pews, clung to the walls and windows and coated the altar before a melted rendering of the Ten Commandments. Community helpThroughout the morning, local church leaders offered Brock alternate locations to hold services throughout the holiday season. Others offered chairs for parishioners to sit in during sermons and other donations, but Brock was not yet sure what needed to be replaced. Everything is black in there, Brock said. Its in pretty bad shape all the way to the back building. We dont even know where to start right now. Brock also was waiting to learn the extent of damage to the chapel structure itself. The heat could have affected the integrity of the mortar and bricks holding the church together, he said, but denitely not that of the church members resolve. This communitys like that: If one person is down, everybodys down, Brock said. We will denitely be here worshipping Sunday, even if we have to get out here in the back lot as cold as it can be; well be here.Blaze ravages Jackson County church JacACK BrocROCKPastor of First Baptist Church, Cottondale Andre NDRE W WardloWARDLO W | The News HeraldFirst Baptist Church in Cottondale was heavily damaged by re on Monday.

Wednesday, DECEMBER 4 2013 By MATTHEW BEATON522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com EBRO Greyhounds run no longer than four years, but then where do they go? Ebro Greyhound Park is doing its part to make sure they nd good homes. More than two years ago, the track partnered with the nonpro t Greyhound Alliance, embracing a large-scale effort to nd its retired runners permanent homes. The track donated one of its kennels the Sunburst Kennel which houses up to 80 dogs waiting for adoption. When racing, the dogs lives oscillate between kennel and track and little else, but their spirits remain bright and their dispositions are absolutely wonderful, said Stacie Strickland, kennel manager. They come out ready to be part of a family. They want somebody to love them. They are so friendly and so outgoing, she said. In fact, theyre bundles of excitable energy and she tries to tone them down a bit so they wont jump all over the kids they meet. Theyre happy-go-lucky and meet few strangers, Strickland said. The local kennel represents a pit stop for most greyhounds headed north or west. Through the Greyhound Alliance, the dogs are shipped all over the country to adoption groups 25 states and 42 different groups. So far more than 2,000 have been cycled through the kennel. Strickland makes sure the dogs have at least four days to recuperate, though some stay a few months. While at Ebro, she said they get exercise four times a day. Theyll lay out in the sun for 30 minutes out there in the pen, and they can cut a doughnut they roll around out there on their backs and play with one another while theyre outside, she said. Early startGreyhounds start racing at 16 months and generally retire at no later than 5 years old. They live between 10 and 14 years old, Strickland said. When they arrive, some may have injuries, so the kennel does vet work, cleans their teeth and spays or neuters them. The goal is to have the dogs ready for adoption, and Greyhound Alliance funds all the vet care. On Tuesday, there were 28 dogs at the kennel, but last week there were 72 it varies based on the next shipment. Other adoption groups around the country put in requests, and Greyhound Alliance pays for the shuttling. This weekend, Ive got dogs that are going up to New England, and theres several little adoptive groups that are getting these dogs, Strickland said. The smaller groups will put them in foster homes and take them to meet-and-greets, and the dogs eventually are placed in a permanent home. For local adoptions she has a very strict process, requiring an appointment, that way ensuring a potential adopter is truly interested. She said she makes them jump through some hoops. I make it a little bit of a chore for people to come out. I dont just pass them out like water, Strickland said, noting only six have been adopted out locally this year. None of the dogs are ever taken to the pound nor are any euthanized. And the intake volume is high. The kennel brings dogs in not just from the North Florida, but from South Florida too. Ebro is housing all of these dogs from the whole state of Florida you know, need be and we can move a lot more dogs through because we have a central place to send them out from, Strickland said.Great successLinda Cliffel helped found the local kennel in 2011, which is part of the Greyhound Alliance. The track had been adopting out dogs on its own and still does for decades, but this represented an opportunity to help a lot more. Though Cliffel lives in Illinois, shes stays up with the local operation. Shes thrilled by its success and heaped praise on the Greyhound Alliance for funding the vet and shipping cost. The only thing we werent prepared for was how successful we were going to be, she said. We have not been able to keep up with demand out of our Sunburst Kennel; its been amazing.

Fo O RGET ME No O T PHo O To O GRap AP Hy Y | Special to ExtraThe Holmes County High School Drama Department will present The Sound of Music this week. HHCHHS to present TThe Sound of Music BirthdayBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com Local novelist Nancy Springer is setting her latest book, Drawn into Darkness, in a ctional version of Holmes County. The protagonist is a bright and bold leading lady according to the Romantic Times review, from Pennsylvania who moves into a rental home wreathed in mimosa in Maypop County to get away from the aftermath of divorce, Springer said. She quickly nds herself drawn into a dark drama involving her neighbor, a child abductor. Maypop County and its hub, the little town of Maypop, are my ctitious adaptation of Bonifay and Holmes County. She said there is some exaggeration on the isolation of Maypop. I exaggerate the isolation, which gives my protagonist no way to call for help, and I set the chase/escape scenes, which is most of the book, in a mazy mess of swamp, dirt roads and riverbank, she said. This setting is an adversary deploying many weapons: heat, mosquitoes, Spanish daggers, thorny vines, re ants, snakes, alligators, the works. I love this picturesque area and enjoyed writing about it. She said that the initial inspiration of the book was to fulll her contract. In the previous book, Dark Lie, I chose an Ohio setting because I needed an utterly at, open landscape for the car chase, but I prefer to set my books where I live, Springer said. This area was perfect for Drawn into Darkness because I needed a place out of the mainstream, a thinly populated area. Besides which, compared to the northeast, this region is downright exotic and people from other parts of the country will, I hope, be interested in reading about it. When Nancy Springer, a well-published novelist, moved into the Holmes County area in 2007, she and her husband lived for a year in a hangar at Tri-County Airport, located along Holmes Creek, where she said she has sighted red wolves, a Florida panther, alligators, all kinds of snakes, plus other reptiles, ibis, egrets and envisioned story ideas galore. Already the new book has received a four-star review from Romantic Times: Dark doesnt begin to describe the terror in which Liana and Justin nd themselves, quoted from the Romantic Times review. Springer gets the most from her characters as she puts them in untenable situations then pulls them back from the depths of despair. Liana nds emotional solace in sarcasm and in quotes from the great philosophers as she ghts to survive. Springer has a large variety of ction she is known for, ranging from magical realism, womens ction, mystery, contemporary and young adult and includes award winning novels such as the Rowan Hood series and the Enola Holmes mystery series. Springer was born in Livingston, N.J., and moved with her family to Gettysburg when she was thirteen. She spent the next forty-six years in Pennsylvania, raising her two children, Jonathan, 39, and Nora, 35, making a living by writing over 50 novels, horseback riding, shing, bird watching, and making the occasional reluctant visits to New York City, where she won the Edgar Allan Poe award from the Mystery Writers of America two years in succession. She is currently working on Gator Bait, a young adult novel about a boy living in a swamp-encircled airport.
