CAROL KENTBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Senior Planner for the Washington County Planning Commission Michael DeRuntz told the Planning Commission that Ebro and Vernons enterprise zones were approved for expansion during their regular meeting on Feb. 4. Weve got a letter from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity where they have concluded their review of Washington Countys request to amend the boundaries of the Washington County Enterprise Zone for Ebro and Vernon, DeRuntz said. Those have been approved, and theres more exciting news, which will be presented by Washington County Enterprise Zone Coordinator Ted Everett. Everett told the commission thanks to the help of Representative Marti Coley, the Enterprise Zones were of cially approved for expansion by a mile and a half for both the City of Vernon and the City of Ebro. I understand now there is discussion, which I was hoping to do with the rst bill, and that was to make all of the county Enterprise Zones, said Everett. Do you understand what that would do for Washington County? This would mean that any new jobs created in Washington County could possibly get as much as 45 percent of their salaries back over a two-year period of time. He added this would include any building that was constructed or rehabilitated in the county could up to $10,000 in sales tax back against the materials that was purchased. Thats what the Chamber has been working on and weve got that passed ourselves and hopefully Ebro and Vernon will bene t from these Enterprise Zone expansions, said Everett. With State Road 79 widening were looking forward and not behind. If we can get a countywide Enterprise Zone it would be big. DeRuntz also informed the Commission that the Florida Department of Transportation has requested that the City of Chipley consider some possible additional routes for industrial expansion.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, February 12, 2014to consider widening the road through downtown Chipley theyre needing another possible route, said DeRuntz. It would be good if we can focus that in areas that are already industrial. City Administrator Dan Miner will be sending our letters encouraging a sit-down meeting because it looks as though all of this will be rerouted through unincorporated parts of the county and we need to be ready. DeRuntz presented his recommendations for updating Washington Countys Future Land Use Map and Land Development Code Amendment. DeRuntz used Trawick as an example, saying that on the map they are designated as commercial when they should be considered industrial and that there were several businesses down Kirkland Boulevard that were still classied as residential areas. This is only a few glaring issues that fall completely on oversight on our part, said DeRuntz. We need to take some time and review this thoroughly before setting up for Board approval. I will give you the out-lining guild on what attributes designates what areas as what. County Engineer Cliff Knauer suggested that someone be hired just for working on the Future Land Use Map. Its a lot bigger than just a few meetings and a lot more than DeRuntz can handle on his own, said Knauer. DeRuntz also advised them to consider the Land Development Code Amendment. We want to make it more business friendly while keeping our community character, said DeRuntz. Its all about communication. Theres no need for decisions now, just review so that maybe next week we can make some sort of decision. He also informed the Commission that the Board of County Commissioners has been discussing progressing with Code Enforcement. Theres been some discussion about moving forward with Code Enforcement, which is vital for maintaining and enforcing codes that are in place, said DeRuntz. Right now theres someone who just elds complaints. Theres just no money for Code Enforcement.

Walley then struck the victim numerous times with an expandable police baton, known as an asp, until she lost consciousness, according to the report. The victim regained consciousness and found she had been moved to the trunk of the vehicle, according to police. Walley continued to travel throughout the evening and into the next day, Feb. 6, making several stops with the victim still trapped in the trunk. Walley came to a stop on Eloise Road, and the victim was able to escape to a nearby residence, where a neighbor reported the incident to law enforcement. Walley was transported to the Holmes County Jail for booking and to await rst appearance. Washington County investigators were contacted to process the stolen vehicle.

OPINION www.chipleypaper.com APage 4Section Our VIEWWho says you cant go home again? Thomas Wolfe. Thats who. The American novelist surely started something with his novel of the same name, published after his death. You cant go home again. Hmmm. Songs have been written surrounding that theme, shoulders have been shrugged in resignation to its potential truth, and countless wouldbe writers have begun essays with that very line. I like to think Mr. Wolfe was referring to times way of changing not only us, but also old friendships and signi cant places in our past, both real and gurative. If he was, in fact, speaking literally, Im glad to say I proved him wrong this week. I returned home to my native Chipley and was reminded of how time passes with no regard of what people think of the changes that passage brings. The old Chuck Wagon restaurant is now a Goodwill store, the iconic courthouse will soon no longer be the hub of the county seat, and classmates I last saw on Philip Rountree Stadium on graduation day in 1993 are now preparing for commencement exercises for their own children. While the skyline and faces in my hometown have evolved over the years, theres one aspect about Washington and Holmes counties which clearly has not changed: The people who comprise these communities are our number one asset. This shows in the way Vernon High School students pulled together for one of their own, Andrea Wright, after she lost her leg in a hunting accident last month. Its apparent in the warm welcome my children and I have already received as we get settled into our normal routine. Yes, Mr. Wolfe, you can go home again, even though the places and people there may change. I came home this week, and theres no place Id rather be.Theres no place like home CAROL KENTEditor As the New Year arrived, many changes in locations of downtown businesses were observed. The Prattler has labeled it as fruit basket turnover time in Chipley. Townspeople will note that the original Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store established in a Main Street store front ten years ago has now moved to 1368 N. Railroad Avenue. Bill DiZinno, assisted by his wife, Dot, remain as managers of the store, a position held since 2006. They report that traf c into the new store has increased tremendously since the move, with sales showing a de nite increase. Bill is from Pennsylvania and Dot was reared in Bay County. They were married 49 years ago while Bill was stationed at Tyndall AFB. That landmark business site underwent extensive renovations performed by building contractor, David Ridley. The beautiful facelift makes for a more spacious and a decorated location for the Thrift Store to continue doing business. The Prattler recalls that Mr. Jim Bowen was operating Chipley Hardware at that site when the Welles arrived in 1970 to open a Sears Roebuck and Co. Catalog Store on E. U.S. 90. The hardware business passed to Don Harrell before it became Owens Furniture Store, owned and operated by Mr. Earnest Owens and wife, Etha Mae Weeks Owens. Furniture Emporium became the name of the business when the Owens daughter and son-in law, Flossie and Thomas Porter became the owners. Next, John Littleton, rst manager of West Point-Pepperell Manufacturing Co. in Chipley, joined Ole Ellis and Tommy McDonald, Sr. in establishing an outlet store for Westpoint. The rst antique store there was begun by Darrell and Ruth Goodier. It was later purchased by Gene Wills and wife, Trudie, who successfully carried on the venture for a number of years under the name of Historic Antique Mall. When the store closed, the Wills sought other interests and continue to live in the area. Just as the positive note on thrift stores was being enjoyed, the Salvation Army Store announced its intention to close the Chipley operation on December 31. A concerted effort to keep the business in downtown Chipley apparently failed. Your writer visited the business on the day prior to the scheduled closing and found merchandise fast being sold from the store. Trish Morris McAllister, has managed the Salvation Army Thrift Store for almost all of its twentyve year history here. Employee, Rhonda Sanders, also has a long work history in the store. Trish, who is a native of Washington County, recalls that the building housed Christos Five and Ten Cent Store at one time, but does not remember the days of A & P Grocery Store there. Just south of this business, it is noted that Sassy Lady Beauty Salon has moved to 828 Falling Waters Road where the six operators of the business are enjoying more working area and improve parking for customers. On the opposite north corner of Main Street and Railroad Avenue, the sign in the window where Dollar General vacated a few months ago, identi es the new business as G.T. Biz. A visit there reveals the owners, Geoff Adams and wife, Tawnia, were already operating the wholesale business on Railroad Avenue and this move gives them additional space needed for their growing business in the distribution of electronic cigarettes. Wanda Yates Quattlebaum is employed in the operation. Diagonally across from this store, is the old Alford Insurance Of ce. Bill Covington, who operates his Music Store there, con rms that he is soon moving to the old Book Store, across from the courthouse. His new location is the former Greyhound Bus Station of many years ago. Also on Railroad Avenue, Heather N. Wells has opened her Bookkeeping Of ce in the former location of Roger Laney, Jr. Heather is the daughter of Dwight Worthington and Vicki Owens Worthington Howard and is married to Herbie Wells, an Ohio native. She has worked as a CPA since 2008. Others joining the musical chairs turnover in the business community include Mitchells Sight and Sound. Chris Mitchell is moving to a new location, 1515 Jackson Avenue. (90 West) and will be accompanied by Steve Ellery, whose car wash and detail shop, known as Divine Shine, at 1400 Jackson Avenue, which has been in operation a number of years. Those looking for Attorney Jeff Goodman will nd him just across the Highway 77 corridor from his rst location. Also housed in the same building is Michelle Tagert, also a lawyer, who rst had an of ce on West Jackson Avenue. All the indicators in the business community seem to re ect a positive outlook for the future of the respective entrepreneurs of Chipley and, hopefully, a good barometer of the general economic picture of our county, state and nation as well. The best of success is wished to all of them. See you all next week.PICTURE BY CECILIA SPEARSBill and Dot DeZinno are shown as they proudly show off the new location of the Washington County Thrift and Restore outlet on Railroad Avenue.

Theres a good bet, though, that lawmakers nally will give parimutuels more freedom on how to schedule their operations. The Senate Gaming Committee last week unveiled the outline of a comprehensive gaming bill that falls short of the sweeping reforms that have been discussed in recent years, and that many had anticipated would be at the forefront of the 2014 session. Noticeably absent is an attempt to expand Las Vegas casino-style gambling around the state; instead, the measure would limit expansion to just two resorts in South Florida. Currently, the state licenses such gaming only at sites operated by the Seminole Tribe. Nor does the bill address allowing slot machines in Washington and Gadsden counties, where Attorney General Pam Bondi has blocked voter-approved referenda permitting the games. Thats disappointing. The bill re ects the disinterest House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz recently expressed in tackling the larger gambling issues this year. The Legislature last year commissioned a study of gaming in preparation of debating whether to allow more casino-style resorts around the state. Bigmoney gambling interests have been preparing the battle eld in recent years for a legislative showdown. Gaetz, though, says a decision doesnt have to be made this year, and Weatherford has said he doesnt want the House to consider an expansion of gambling unless it is accompanied by a constitutional amendment asking voters if they want to have a say in future expansions. Its good to see the Senate bill tackle one issue thats been festering for too long: Eliminating the requirement that the owners of racetracks present a minimum number of greyhound races annually in order to maintain their licenses to operate poker rooms, aka decoupling. Betting on dog races has been declining for years, so tracks have supplanted some of that lost revenue by offering other forms of gambling, such as poker rooms. But state law requires greyhound tracks to conduct a minimum number of races each year if they also have other forms of gaming. That can range from 100 performances to 394; Ebro Greyhound Park in Washington County requires a minimum of 167 (a performance consists of at least eight live races). Pari-mutuels dont like the law because they lose money on the races. Animal-rights activists dislike it because it means more dogs are required to run. At last weeks committee hearing, Sen. Jack Latvala, RClearwater, expressed reservations about decoupling, saying its not a black and white issue. He said breeders and trainers make their living based on these races, and decoupling would mean the state is picking winners and losers. On the contrary, the current law is propping up breeders and trainers by mandating an arbitrary number of races when the market cannot sustain them. Decoupling would let tracks, not government, decide how many races to run. Decoupling doesnt have the political sizzle that more casinos would, but its a common-sense deregulatory effort whose time has come. If the Legislature makes one change to gaming laws this year, it should pass decoupling. This editorial originally ran in the Panama City News Herald.

Your pets dental health is much more complex than just maintaining a dazzling, pearly white smile. Though easy to overlook, our pets oral hygiene should be taken very seriously. With February being Pet Dental Health Month, there is no better time to begin awareness and maintenance of your pets oral hygiene. Oral hygiene has a direct effect on the overall health of your pet, said Dr. Bert Dodd, clinical professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Dental disease affects a signi cant number of pets during their lifetime, and just like with people, there can be serious consequences accompanied with poor dental health. The belief that our pets are supposed to have foul breath is a common misconception. Although their breath certainly wont smell like roses, extremely foul odor can be the rst sign of a severe dental problem. Often, exceptionally bad breath is the rst indicator of oral disease, Dodd said. Some other indicators of oral disease may include excessive drooling, in amed gums and loose teeth. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a disease of neglect, Dodd said. If preventative dental health is not practiced, and periodontal therapy ignored, other health complications may follow. The infected areas of the mouth contain bacteria that can then spread through the bloodstream to other parts of the body such as the heart, kidneys, or liver. Preventing such detrimental side effects is possible with regular upkeep and awareness. Dental care for your pet should begin early on, so it is vital that your veterinarian teach you how to properly care for their teeth and gums right away. Veterinarians can provide demonstrations of the most effective and hasslefree way to brush their teeth, as well as which diets and toys are the safest and most effective. Another important step in caring for your pets dental health is to provide them with complete teeth cleaning under anesthesia with your pets veterinarian. Oral examinations and cleaning should be performed on your pet at least once a year, Dodd said. They should be performed more frequently if home care cant be done or if there are other oral problems. In addition to annual oral examinations, daily home dental care is vital. Home care includes everything from brushing, using proper dental chews, water additives and dental diets, Dodd said. A toothbrush and toothpaste speci cally made for pets, as well as wipes and pads, are just a few items to invest in. Like regular grooming and exercise, dental care should become a routine for both you and your pet to strictly follow. Regular tooth brushing, accompanied by annual oral examinations and at home checkups, will lead to one happy pet with a dazzling and healthy smile.Covenant Hospice offers training for new volunteers Like us on WASHINGTON COUNTY NEWS/ HOLMES COUNTY ADVERTISER Upkeep of your pets oral hygiene is important PET TALK

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com ASectionI was really like 16 or 17, Walker said. I had no idea about all the rules or everything. Added Long, In hindsight, probably a lot of things might have been done differently. I traveled with Chris a lot myself throughout the years, and we just werent prepared for this, for his level of success, and were thankful because its his dream. Growing up in Bonifay (population 2,793), a small town in the Florida Panhandle, Walker had big dreams. Long said Walker knew that basketball was the ticket to improve his circumstances. We had conversations along those lines when he was 13 years old, Long said. My kids would be going out to play, and if Chris wasnt on the court ... he was inside (our) house, doing a basketball video game and maybe wanting to go outside and practice his moves. He would even text me and say, Hey, I got a new move, I learned a new move. Ive got to show it to you when I see you. It was awesome. Yeah, I think he always knew (basketball) was his calling. Hes worked hard over the years. Chris was in the gym practicing basketball over the summer and things like that when other kids were just hanging out, playing. I remember thinking, telling him, stop and enjoy yourself sometimes. Basketball, he would eat, sleep and drink basketball. By middle school, Walker was regularly beating players in oneand-one that were three or four years older than him. There were guys on the court way older than Chris, and they were blown away, Long said. As the Free Chris Walker campaign mounted in January, Long said she spotted him on TV moping on the bench. That prompted a phone call to her self-described godson. I always saw him as this happy-go-lucky kid that despite whatever was thrown at him, was determined to be happy, Long said. When he was sitting on the bench, he looked sad. And I called him up and told him, You keep your head up. Youve come this far and you know, things are going to work out for you. Walker said he tried to stay positive during the NCAA investigation. I knew it had to end eventually, Walker said. I tried not to let it bother my mind. I just kept working and following coach in what he said every day. Walker made the most of his seven minutes off the bench against Missouri, nishing with four points, two rebounds and two blocked shots. At times, Walker was slow to help on defense and got called for a foul off the ball when he clutched Missouri forward Tony Criswell on an in-bounds play. But those are things that can be cleaned up between now and March. For now, Walker is just happy to be on the court and contributing, considering the obstacles hes overcome. Were all abuzz, Long said. All excited that our baby boy is getting to do what he loves most. $4,500,000 $500,000 $1,500,000 $2,500,000 $3,500,000 $4,500,000 $0 $1,000,000 $2,000,000 $3,000,000 $4,000,000 $5,000,000 GOAL enewCollegeofAppliedStudiesatFSUPanamaCitywasapprovedby theFSUBoardofTrusteesinJune2010andallowsthecampustomore easilyrespondtoworkforceneedsinourarea.WeinviteyoutosupporteCampaignforOurCommunitysUniversitybyhelpingusbuildan endowmentfortomorrowsjobs.Ourgoalistoestablisha$5million endowmentfortheCollegeofAppliedStudiesby2017,whichwillallow FSUPanamaCitytoestablishstudentscholarships,implementnew degreeprogramsandprovidenewequipmentandtechnology.

THECAMPAIGNFOROURCOMMUNITYSUNIVERSITYEndowmentforTomorrowsJobs SUPPORTOUR COMMUNITYS UNIVERSITY By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com CHIPLEY Good things came in threes for Chipley. A trio of Tigers secured collegiate futures Feb. 5, led by Jacob Wilsons signing with FAU of the Football Bowl Subdivision. Teammates Kobe McCrary and J.J. Holmes are moving on to the junior college level with hopes of catching on with a four-year program after one or two seasons. Wilson was like other prospects in that he ful lled a childhood dream. He was among four area recruits to sign with an FBS school. I wouldnt say I always knew I was going to go to a Division I school, Wilson said. But I never thought about anything but that. Its beyond exciting. Ive been waiting for this so long. Its been a dream and its been stressful, but it feels good to nally commit and sign and know where Im going. Down there is Boca Raton, where FAU underwent changes at head coach with the ring of Carl Polini after less than two seasons. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Wilson said the change wasnt a deterrent, as he was originally recruited by then and current FAU tight ends coach Jared Allen. New head coach Charlie Partridge was in immediate need for a tight end with two departing, and the t was complete. Wilson caught only ve passes last season but showcased his blocking ability in a Wing-T offense. He showed his athleticism at linebacker with 52 tackles and will be given the opportunity to produce more on offense with the Owls, who nished 6-6 last season. FAMU and Northern Colorado gave Wilson looks. FAU was the FBS suitor, and he said some schools backed off because he was returning from an ACL injury he suffered as a junior. I think I played very well after the injury, he said. Of course, you can always play better. He has the chance to do just that and potentially as early as next season. I dont really know what Ill be doing, he said. But it would be awesome to be able to play. We play next year at Alabama, and it would be big.FROM TEAMMATES TO FOESMcCrary is off to Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kan. Holmes is joining rival Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, located 75 miles from Butler. Both are members of the Jayhawk Conference. McCrary is joining the school with more success, as the Grizzlies won the conference title in 2013 for the fourth consecutive season. They did so with a 1916 six-overtime win over Hutchinson and dispatched their rival 24-21 for the Region VI championship. McCrary (6-0, 215) was a two-way athlete at running back and linebacker for Chipley. He was one of the areas top rushers with 1,361 yards and 16 touchdowns and added 50 tackles on defense. He will continue at running back for Butler. Holmes was a two-way lineman for the Tigers and also plays basketball. The 63, 285-pounder was named rst-team all-state in Class 1A along with McCrary. By KEVIN BROCKWAYHalifax Media Services GAINESVILLE Nadine Long made the three-hour drive from Marianna to Gainesville on Feb. 4 to watch Florida freshman Chris Walker make his debut against Missouri. Long had served as parental gure to Walker growing up, inviting the 6foot-10 forward over to her house to play video games with her kids or to share meals. So when Walker rst stepped on the court with 11:28 left in the rst half, it brought tears to Longs eyes. Hes realizing his dream, and hes worked so hard to get there, Long said. When I think about it, I get emotional. Many people know Walker as a consensus Top 15 national recruit who won the McDonalds All-American slam dunk contest before enrolling at Florida. What they may not know is that Walker was abandoned by his biological parents. He was raised by his grandmother from when he was a baby until she died when he was 12. He then moved in with his grandmothers close friend, Janeen Campbell, who was on a xed income and ill-equipped nancially to raise a young teenager. Long spelled out these special circumstances in a letter she sent to NCAA president Mark Emmert, urging the governing body of college sports to give Walker a second chance. At the time, the NCAA was investigating Walker for receiving illegal bene ts from agents and summer league coaches ranging from cell phones to apparel to travel and cash. As a young basketball prodigy who was 6-foot-8 by the time he was 13, Walker was a commodity in the under-the-table-deal world of summer basketball. Even the people close to home, we werent prepared for this, Long said. We always knew, here was this driven, ambitious kid who was so passionate about the game of basketball ever since he was young. The Chris Walker that everybody sees today, hes the kid we fell in love with. He was a dreamer and he was determined to do whatever he had to do to realize his dream. In his rst comments since arriving on campus at Florida in December, Walker acknowledged he didnt think he was breaking NCAA rules in some of his dealings with travelleague coaches.

Wednesday, FEBRUARY 12 2014 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Under the dimmed lights, sitting in satin-lined chairs and dinning by candle light visitors enjoyed an evening of music and dinner as Washington Holmes County Domestic Violence Task Force held their rst Black Tie and Boots Gala on Friday to raise money for a domestic violence shelter locally. We hope to do this every year and it just becomes bigger and bigger, said task force Chairman Missy Lee. Master of Ceremonies was guest speaker Misty Morgan, known for being the co-host to Jerome Jackson on Misty and Jerome in the Morning on 95.5 WTVY. It is really such an honor and a privilege to come down, Morgan said. Ever since I heard of the Washington Holmes County Domestic Violence Task Force, I just knew I had to be a part of that some how. So if this is even just the beginning of me being able to help out any way that I possibly can, it is a wonderful thing. She said her mother was raised in a home environment where domestic violence was prominent. It inspires me, personally, to see people reaching out a helping hand to women and children who cannot help themselves, Morgan said. May God bless you every step of the way, and may he give you great rewards for your sel ess actions here on Earth. They are truly being the hands and feet of Jesus with this task force. She said the task force began in October 2012 with a spaghetti dinner. The task force has grown slowly since then, Morgan said. In 2013, they held a softball tournament in Chipley that raised over $2,000. In October of 2013, they held an awareness walk with a concert by country singer Julie Roberts at Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay. The purpose of these fundraisers, Morgan said, is to build a shelter for victims of domestic violence. If there is no shelter here, then victims have to move to the closest shelter, which is over an hour away from here, she said. I did not know that women would have to drive all the way to Pensacola or go all the way to Dothan (Ala.) just to escape a situation, and thats what really struck a cord with me. WHCDVTF fundraiser Chairman Crystal Gery spoke on how domestic violence took her mother away from her at a young age when her father killed her mother. Gery also received the Tonya Farmer Memorial Award for her dedicated service to the task force. Domestic violence is real, and it is local, and people need to stop turning their heads because well never be able to stop it if we keep looking the other way, Lee said. We are trying to raise money to open a shelter, and we have lots of people who are willing to help. Like recently, we had furniture donated for our facility. Weve got churches willing to help out with the bills every month. We just need a facility. So, please, if you ever hear of anyone willing to donate someone for a tax write-off, please tell them about us.

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 B6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News ExtraBy JEFF BURLEWSenior government editor Tallahassee Democrat Paul Gordy was returning from his sixth bombing mission over Kiel, Germany, the morning of July 29, 1943, when a German antiaircraft shell exploded near the B-17 he was co-piloting. Shrapnel from the explosion knocked out one of the bombers four engines, causing the aircraft to catch re and ultimately lose control. The tail gunner was dead, and Gordy and the rest of the 10-man crew began bailing out through the bomb-bay doors, still open from their successful bomb run. The plane was going down, nose rst, at better than 175 mph. Gordy, a second lieutenant ying with the U.S. Army Air Corps 384th Bombardment Group (heavy), bailed out using a small auxiliary parachute, hitting the 53degree waters of the North Sea about 9 a.m. After struggling to stay a oat for 14 hours using a small lifesaver known as a Mae West, Gordy found himself asking God for help. I said Lord, Ive read that you can do anything, Gordy recalled. But if its possible, I would sure like to see what you can do here. And if you do, you wont have any trouble from me. And I said I just cant make it. I cant go any more. Gordy, now 91, recalled the story of the plane crash and its aftermath including his almost two years in a German prisoner-of-war camp in an interview with the Tallahassee Democrat. On Thursday, he took part in a ceremony at Westminster Oaks retirement community, where he resides, adding his signature to a commemorative B-17 wing panel that has been touring the country since 2010. So far, more than 70 veterans of the 384th have signed the panel as part of a project of the Next Generation Association of the 384th Bombardment Group. About half an hour after praying for help in the North Sea, Gordy caught a glimpse of what he thought was a buoy off in the distance. Kicking furiously, he approached to nd not a buoy but a life raft, which had fallen out of the B17 during the crash. The copilot was clinging onto it, and the planes navigator was nearby. The raft was full of holes, and the men had to keep blowing to keep it a oat. Gordy searched the raft, nding something that could save the mens lives a are gun. He red one, then another, but both ares were too wet to go off. He prayed before ring the third are, which lit up the sky. A German air-sea rescue plane, which was patrolling nearby, plucked the men out of the water. And we said look, weve got some crew members (in the water) because that day there was no wind, and when we jumped out, we were all in a line, Gordy recalled. So I said how about ying in this direction? And we landed and picked up four more. Gordy and the other of cers aboard the plane ended up in Stalag Luft 3 the German POW camp made famous in the movie, The Great Escape about 100 miles southeast of Berlin. Gordy would spend the next 21 months as a prisoner of the Germans, rst at Stalag Luft 3 and later, as the camps were moved away from advancing Allied troops, at Nuremberg and Moosburg. The Germans allowed the Allies to run their own compounds. Gordy was assigned the job of making tickets by hand for a theater the soldiers had built to put on shows. Most of us were college guys, Gordy recalled. Man, we had people who could do anything. And the Germans loved to come to our shows. We had guys, wed dress them up, who could sing. At one point, a familiar face arrived at the camp Gordys brother Leonard Gordy, whod also been shot down over enemy lines. Eventually, as the Allies were closing in and the Germans were moving their prisoners away from the front line, the brothers were separated. But they were reunited a few days before Gen. George Pattons 14th Armored Division liberated them at Moosburg. They came in and fought about an hour and a half over us, Gordy recalled. There were about 90,000 of us. I got back with my brother. They got hold of some music, and they played the national anthem. And 90,000 people were hugging each other and crying because Ill tell you, its something to be liberated and regain your freedom.A LOT OF THINGS ... WENT WRONGThe B-17 Gordy ew, called The Joker, was among the rst such bombers the Americans ew in World War II. At the time, B-17s had fewer guns and defenses than later versions and ew without cover from ghter planes the Americans later developed during the war. Bombing missions, which originated out of USAAF Station 106 near the town of Grafton Underwood in England, were fraught with danger from German ghter planes and anti-aircraft guns on the ground. When the planes were about 20 miles out from their targets, they had to begin ying in a straight line at a certain altitude, making them sitting ducks for the Germans. The 384th ew its rst combat mission on June 22, 1943, bombing a truck plant in Antwerp. After the group completed its sixth mission, all but one of its 36 original bombers had been lost. Always you had mechanical dif culties, Gordy said. To y at 25,000 feet, youve got to have everything working perfectly. Youre all on oxygen. It was very complicated. You had to know how to y a plane and what to do. We had a lot of collisions, a lot of things that went wrong. After the war, Gordy came home, nished his degree at the University of North Carolina and moved to Chipley, where he met his wife, Ann, on a blind date. Gordy went to work as a salesman for spice manufacturer McCormick & Company. He and his wife raised two children, Paula Cook of Tallahassee and Steve Gordy of Aiken, S.C. They recently moved to Westminster Oaks. For more than 15 years he presided over Veterans Day activities in Washington County. He also recorded interviews with more than 70 veterans in Florida and Alabama through the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium.WAR POOREST WAY TO SETTLE DISAGREEMENTGordy attended Thursdays ceremony at Westminster Oaks with his wife Ann, 85, and their daughter. Jake Balda, chairman of the 140-member Westminster Oaks Veterans Group, helped organize the B-17 panel signing. Hes one of a group of very special people who possessed a deep dedication to America and its principles, Balda said. Before the signing ceremony, Gordy read a quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower from a speech delivered after World War II but before he was elected president of the United States. I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility and its stupidity. Gordy said he agreed with the sentiment. After what I have seen, Gordy said, I think war is the poorest way in the world to settle a disagreement. WWII vet adds name to bomber wingMIKE EWEN | Tallahassee Democrat Paul Gordy, who ew six missions in B-17 heavy bombers, signs a wing panel at Westminster Oaks on Jan. 2. A wing panel from a World War II heavy bomber is readied for signing on Thursday. Paul Gordy spent nearly two years in a German POW camp after his plane was shot down during an Allied bombing mission in 1943.
