By Carol Kent638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Weve gotten too far away from the Lord and the land. When you dont own land, you dont appreciate what it takes to put food on the table. That belief is what led to Dr. Bruce Christmas Sr.s dedication to educating future generations about the importance of agriculture and the role it plays in the economy, a life mission which recently earned the Jackson County native a spot in the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame. As an agent with the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service, Christmas is respected for his research in poultry science. But its his work to promote agriculture as a whole and educate children about its value for which the genial fth generation farmer is perhaps best known. His message emphasizes the importance of American agriculture as the safest, lease expensive food supply in the world and its connection to everything we have and do as Americans. Christmas spent seven years in Orange County, FL as an Extension Agent, where he helped develop and run urban 4-H clubs. A lot of folks asked why I bothered, says Christmas. They said Those city kids will never be farmers. I told them I wasnt trying to make them farmers; I was trying to teach them the value of agriculture and how it impacts their lives. These kids would be consumers one day, and they needed to understand and appreciate where their food came from. Christmas moved to Washington County in 1969, where he worked at Chipleys Poultry Evaluation Center. His eld research soon became widely published, helping earn him the Harms Publication Award for best poultry publication in 1983. Hes also been recognized by many organizations for his leadership and volunteer service to youth, having given over 16,000 hours of volunteer service and traveled over 65,000 non-reimbursed miles to tell the story of agriculture. He was inducted into the Florida 4-H Hall of Fame, has served on the UF College of Agriculture and Life Science board for many years and was previously chosen National Volunteer of the Year for the National Agriculture Alumni and Development Association. Over the course of 20 years, more than 5,000 Washington County youth, teachers and parents have participated in eld days, Ag in the Classroom and Youth Fair events and activities in which Christmas was an integral part of planning, funding and teaching.

According to investigators, Army Sgt. Joseph French, 27, reportedly sexually abused a female victim over a period of three years, both at a private Washington residence and on the joint base, Lewis-McChord, where he was stationed. French is accused of tying the victims wrists and feet to a swing during the attacks, which he reportedly broadcast to another military service member and a female viewer through Skype. A hearing is set for Thursday, Feb. 28, in Washington.Chipley man charged with rape JOSEPH FRENCHBy Cecilia SpearsCHIPLEY What would you do to save someone you love? This is the question that led young author Brittany Hawes through a series of ideas that would bloom to be her rst novel. Hawes is a 20-year-old Chipola College student and a 2012 graduate of Vernon High School who recently had her rst novel, Twisted, published by Deep Sea Publishing in Herndon, Va. Having her book published was part of Hawkins prize as the winner of the companys 2013 Young Author Contest Im a Chipola sophomore with one more year to compete my associates degree in communication, Hawes said. I love to read, and that is why I wrote my own story. I got the idea when I was writing, and I thought, What would you do to save someone you love? Hawes then spun a tale about a homeless orphan living on Skid Row after her parents mysteriously vanished when she was 8 years old, leaving her to care for herself. The adventure begins when she dedicates her life to spend her every waking moment in the pursuit to nd her missing parents. She soon nds answers that only lead to more questions as the story develops Young author publishes rst novel BRITTANY HAWES See NOVEL A2 A foundation we can count onStaff ReportThe Tallahassee Police Department Special Victims Unit is asking for help from residents in the Washington County area in a continued effort to locate Michael McNamara, a 17-yearold missing person.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, February 19, 2014Staff Report The Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce has located Casey Jean Anderson, a 27year-old Ponce de Leon who was reported missing by his mother from their home on the evening of Sunday, Feb. 16. Earlier that evening, the sheriffs of ce received a call of a suspicious person in the area of Simmons Lane, south of Ponce de Leon. The caller reported the subject was knocking on their door asking for water and matched Andersons description. Anderson was located the morning of Tuesday, Feb. 18, after deputies spent two nights searching in a densely wooded area. He was transported for treatment by Holmes County EMS. Anderson reportedly was suffering from a brain injury and had not been taking his medication. Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown would like to thank the Walton County Sheriffs Of ce, the Bay County Sheriffs Of ce and the Florida Department of Corrections K-9 teams from Holmes and Walton C.I. for their assistance. Julie Pigott Dillard, who helped nominate Christmas for his most recent honor, was among those students. I visited the egg-laying contest on school eld trips and was later coached as an FFA member on a state winning poultry team by (Christmas), recalls Dillard. His honors and awards speak for themselves, but its my obligation to speak on his dedication, love and respect for agriculture. You are likely to never meet someone so passionate for agriculture as Dr. Christmas. Throughout his life, he has been an outspoken advocate for the national and state food systems as safe, wholesome and the best value for the dollar, she adds. He is a tireless advocate for the rights of farmers and ranchers and is always willing to speak on their behalf. Although he is of cially retired, he will never retire from his position as agricultural advocate. H. Fred Dietrich, also mentored by Christmas, took part in his nomination for the hall of fame honor as well. It was his example that encouraged me to go into agricultural youth work as a career and to be in leadership of many agricultural professional organizations, says Dietrich. Dr. Christmas has been married for more than 50 years to Addie Ann, and they have four sons: Stuart, Bruce, Jr., Jonathan and Scott. Hes an active member of First Baptist Church of Chipley, Chipley Kiwanis and President of the Washington County Farm Bureau, where he continues to give time to those who need him. Still, ensuring the success of agriculture here remains his passion. Agriculture allows us to have the standard of living that we do, says Christmas. We eat cheaper (in the United States) than any other country on Earth. Agriculture is the backbone of our economy, and its a foundation we can count on. Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam and the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame Foundation made the announcement to induct Christmas and three other honorees into the 2014 Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame at the Florida State Fair in Tampa Tuesday, Feb. 11. These individuals have made incredible contributions to agriculture in our state and beyond, Commissioner Putnam said. The changes and improvements they have made will help ensure the strength of Floridas $100 billion agriculture for generations to come.

NOVEL from page A1 Police nd missing Ponce de Leon man CASEY JEAN ANDERSON BY KYLE HIGHTOWERAssociated Press ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Florida education of cials have of cially adopted a handful of changes to school standards known as Common Core State Standards. The changes were adopted Tuesday during a State Board of Education meeting in Orlando. The benchmarks for learning in language arts and math were adopted by Florida in 2010 and have been approved by more than 40 other states. The standards were developed by a coalition of state leaders and establish what a student should know to be prepared for college and the workforce. State Education Commissioner Pam Stewart also says she remains on track to make a decision in March regarding a new statewide testing assessment. It will replace existing tests which are primarily known as the FCAT. Those changes would go into effect next school year.

With erce global competition, the U.S. was facing a startling shortage of scientists. Since the initiative began in 2009, Florida 4-H has embraced preparing the next generations of scientists through club programs, camps, school enrichment and after-school programs. In January, more than 30 4-H agents and volunteers met in Quincy for an intense one-and-a-half-day training in 4-H robotics. Grantees went through lessons from the Junk Drawer Robotics curriculum and 4-H Robotics: Engineering for Today and Tomorrow to learn the engineering design process, how to apply 4-H Essential Elements through robotics programs and recruitment strategies for new volunteers and funding sources. Participants explored the LEGO Mindstorm robotics kits by building the CowBot robot, programming it and participating in challenges. Not only did they collect and interpret data, but they had to analyze their data to make adjustments in their programming to successfully meet their challenges just as their 4-H youth would. Over the next year, Washington County 4-H will be introducing day camp programs in robotics and collaborating with the Washington County School District to create an afterschool robotics 4-H Club.

By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE A state House panel was all about beer Feb. 11, advancing three malt beverage-related bills, including a measure to allow sales of 64-ounce growlers. Among the three bills, an overarching committee bill would address several factors, including safety, tastings and growler sales. The bill would explicitly dene a growler as a 32-ounce, 64-ounce, 128-ounce, 1-liter or 2-liter container made to hold malt beverages. The 64-ounce size is standard for growlers, according to a staff analysis of the bill. The brewers have pushed for legalization of the larger size since last year. The bill also would allow beer manufacturers to run a tap room and sell beer to patrons without a vendors license. The beer could be sold for onand off-premise consumption. Phone or mail orders would not be allowed.The manufacturer would brew the beer sold in the tap room on site or ship it in from another brewery it owns. At least 70 percent of tap room sales a year would need to be brewed on site. Off-premise consumption sales would be limited to growlers and other authorized containers. The bill also would allow manufacturers and distributers to hold on-premise beer tastings. Brewers largely support the bill but want some minor adjustments.Were very much in favor of the work youre doing, said Craig Birkmaier, vice president of Florida Brewers Guild. Obviously, we have positions and would like to work with you to tweak the bill to meet all of those.The bill was opposed by an antidrug and alcohol group. State Rep. Darryl Rouson noted both retailers and brewers still had concerns about the legislation. And even though the bill sailed through the Business & Professional Regulation Subcommittee, the Democratic ranking member from St. Petersburg indicated his caucus might have problems with it down the road. The bill impacts not just the distributors and the brewers, but also has impact on the consumer, who I think at the end of the day is the most important person that we need to be concerned about, Rouson said.Chairman Debbie Mayeld, RVero Beach, pointed out a growler bill was led last year, which the committee did not take up. She said it would have affected more than just growlers, affecting the states three-tier system for beer sales manufacturers with vendors licenses, tap rooms attached to a manufacturers premises and brew pubs that sell beer brewed on site.Mayeld said the bill was very difcult to craft and draws a very ne line. We were coming from the standpoint of trying to protect the three-tiered system at the same time of allowing an industry to grow, she said. The committee also passed a bill (HB 387), which would put more precise language on in-store tastings. The third bill the committee approved would let beer be sold in any size including any size growler at retail stores in the state.Beer bills advance in House Robotics provide unique opportunities for 4-Hers

OPINION APage 4SectionAgri-tourism is a term Ive been hearing for several years now, and I believe we have been somewhat involved in it from the beginning in 1987 at our blueberry business on Hwy 79. We are interested in capitalizing on our ideal location as much as possible. For that reason, when we were informed about a workshop in Quincy last week, I quickly made reservations for our son Glen, Jack and myself to attend. Our Extension agent, Shep Eubanks, Julia Bullington, Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Director, Mark and Carla Templeton of The Silver Door art studio all attended from Holmes County. Julia is on the Board of Directors for River Way South who sponsored the event. I learned much at the workshop, a new word, for one thing. Riparian. That is a term describing a geographic area whose boundary is a moving body of water. River Way South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee or RWSAC is counterpart to a parent organization started earlier to represent the interests of the Georgia, Alabama and Florida watershed. But RWSAC represents the interests of the riparian counties of Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, and Washington. Since Florida is a tourist state, we believe that tourists are missing some of this areas rich agricultural, cultural, historical, maritime, and nature based resources. Much of these resources are located in the rural areas: thus, agri-tourism is born. The leader of the workshop we attended at the U of F Research Center in Quincy was International Agri-tourism Specialist Jane Eckert who knows about the subject from personal experience. She is a sixth generation farmers daughter whose family operates an apple farm which has evolved over the years into an agri-tourist attraction that hosts 400,000 guests annually. She has a degree in business administration and left the family farm to work in agri-marketing for 15 years. Returning to the farm she guided the expansion into agri-tourism. She now operates an Agricultural Marketing Company. She is an approved speaker and consultant by Florida Department of Economic Development and the USDA. She has earned many honors including Hall of Fame by The Direct Marketing Association. Some notes from her workshop: People visit farm destinations for the scenery, to visit family and friends, participate in farm activities, and to buy products. The visitor wants things to see, things to do, things to buy, and things to taste. Eckert recommends starting with a commodity; adding value; deliver a service; provide an experience. To get started, she says Evaluate your familys commitment, evaluate the physical assets of your property, determine your nancial comfort level, and target your customers. Then she gave recommendations for expanding what you sell; services and activities you might offer; special events you might host. She emphasized that trained and friendly staff is crucial. She stressed that we are in the hospitality business! A portion of the workshop dealt with legal aspects of an on the farm enterprise. The Florida Legislature has passed legislation favorable to agri-tourism (570.96 and sub sections.) However each operator must be aware of possible risks and protect himself from liability. She highly recommends having a web site to keep the consumer aware of your business. Our experience over 25 plus years in limited agri-tourism has been most pleasant. We hope to continue and expand our services through this medium. We encourage others in our area to develop your opportunity. A trail of tours will be established in the future by the RWSAC and you may join the organization. Of cers are Pres. Homer Hirt, Lake Seminole, Vice President Betty Webb Apalachicola, Secretary John Thornton West Florida Electric Cooperative, and Treasurer Heather Lopez Washington County.

Not only was the information gained at this workshop, the networking with other entrepreneurs and information gained from them was invaluable. www.chipleypaper.comWednesday, February 19, 2014Not fooled by Southerlands deceptivenessDear Editor, As the polls show, and as many of you are aware, there is a growing disdain for our politicians in Washington. The 2013 Congress was dubbed the Do Nothing Congress. Their partisanship and obstructionism is sti ing our country and the wellbeing of our citizens. Our congressman is no exception. Congressman Steve Southerland voted with his extreme Tea Party colleagues to shut down the government last October, which cost the American taxpayers $24 billion. That money would have gone a long way toward feeding the poor. Then he voted with the same colleagues to keep the government shut down and not pay the bills he and the rest of Congress appropriated to begin with, all because he opposed Obamacare. He has not put forth an alternative to Obamacare, and when he signed up for it he took advantage of a federal subsidy provided by the taxpayers in order to lower his premiums, even though he says his $174,000 congressional salary is not so much. Southerland voted for the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 because the Republican leadership convinced most House Republicans to do so, to avoid another embarrassing shutdown. He is now against what he voted for, and is twisting it around to get votes from Tyndall Air Force Base. Within days after his vote he said, With two years remaining before these COLA changes are due to take effect, I am hopeful the House will address the concerns of our retirees between now and then. We did not send Southerland to Washington to be hopeful of what the House will do between now and then, we sent him there to be a leader and do what is right for us now. If he is so concerned about the COLA cuts, he should never have voted for the budget to begin with. In a News Herald article, Southerland stated, I voted against sequestration in 2011 because I knew it was wrong for North and Northwest Floridas military. Actually, he voted against a compromise bill that would lead to sequestration if Congress could not pass a budget. Sequestration was supposed to be so terrible it would force both parties to come together and pass a budget in the future. The compromise, as bad as it was, temporally funded the government and prevented a government shutdown. If all congressmen had voted against the compromise bill, like Southerland did, it would have led to another shutdown. Southerland attached an amendment to the Farm Bill cutting food stamps by $39 billion, which caused the much-needed bill our farmers depend on to fail for the rst time ever. Ironically, Southerland stated in his Christmas address, Dear Friend, as we gather with our loved ones and re ect upon our personal blessings this Christmas holiday season, let us be mindful of those who are less fortunate. Yet he is determined to make harsh slashes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Is taking food away from 47 million poor people being mindful of those who are less fortunate? Southerland has fought against widely successful commercial shing programs since taking of ce in 2010, but a member of his staff told a commercial sherman last December at a shing meeting in Tampa that Southerland changed his mind and is now willing to work with commercial shermen. Is this because he is running against a formidable opponent for his house seat this November? It may be too late for him to garner support from commercial shermen since, through a grassroots effort, commercial shermen from Key West to Brownsville, Texas, who are not even in Southerlands district, have donated much more to his opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, than he has received from his dark-money billionaire contributors. As one of those shermen, I am not fooled by Southerlands deceptiveness, and I hope this letter sheds some light on his hypocrisy. Instead of a congressman who does photo ops and makes statements for personal political ambitions, we need a leader in Congress who will truly reach across the aisle and work with both parties and independents, not just for the bene t of our district, but for the sake of our country. That person is Mrs. Gwen Graham.Jim ClementsCarrabelle Letter to the EDITORDoctor Clinton Frederick (Fred) Lavender died, after a brief illness, on Nov. 5, 2013, in Panama City at the age of 91. Dr. Lavender was stricken while visiting his devoted wife, Jeanne Lavender, who was a patient in the hospital at the time. Dr. Lavender made his home in Chipley at 782 Third Street since his marriage to Jeanne Welin on Aug. 21, 1993. Their meeting and marriage presents a most interesting story. Jeanne came to make her home in Chipley in 1990 after retiring from her AT&T job in Bernardsville, N.J., her home state. This lady had come to know telephone employee, Ann Davis, a fellow telephone company employee, upon her transferring to New Jersey on her job. This was soon after the unfortunate death of son, Mark Davis, who was a student at West Point when stricken with a fatal disease. The friendship developed with Ann Davis and husband, Albert (Sonny) Davis, resulting in Jeanne purchasing a home in the Historic District of Chipley and moving here. Jeanne quickly became involved in church, civic, fraternal and other professional organizations, soon becoming fully immersed in the activities of her adopted home. After becoming established in Chipley, she attended a session of Elderhostel training in Feb. 1993 in Columbus, Ga. While there, she met Dr. Fred Lavender who was also an active member and participant in Elderhostel, Inc., the not-for-pro t world leader in lifelong learning since 1975. Jeanne described the purpose of the organizations as: A continuing education program designed for those age 50 years and older to participate. This lady learned that her new found friend was born in Mans eld, Ohio on Aug. 19, 1922, to a horse and buggy doctors family and that his wife, Mary Ann Lavender, had died recently and he was a father and grandfather of loving children. The friendship soon blossomed into a courtship and plans were soon made to have a private wedding at Holmes Creek Baptist Church with a mammoth reception held afterwards on the spacious yard at Jeannes Third Street Home. The couple honored your writer by requesting that I arrange for a bluegrass musical group to perform traditional music for the celebration. Addison and Ann Prescott were to cater a full lunch sitdown meal, serving soul foods prepared from vegetables grown in their garden. Marshall Smith, his wife, Linda and their daughter, Sophie, members of the bluegrass ensemble, Up The Creek from Panama City, did a beautiful rendition of appropriate songs for the event. Later, a second reception was held in Freds home state of Ohio where a oating vessel provided a two hour cruise, entertaining a host of the grooms friends, family and associates. Jeanne had already learned that her husband-to-be started his volunteering in his childhood, achieving Eagle Scout. He played in a dance band during high school, and met Frank Sinatra and Tommy Dorsey. During school, he achieved honors including Phi Beta Kappa for undergraduate and medical school recognition. Also revealed was that Dr. Lavender served in the U.S. Armys Occupation of Germany, achieving the rank of Captain. The new bride could not have been surprised when the doctor continued to volunteer for the Literacy and Library programs for children and adults in Florida as he had done in Ohio. His involvement in Music, Arts and the annual Cleveland Orchestra Concert Series in Sandusky Ohio were carried over to the Spanish Trail Playhouse in Chipley and similar programs at Chipola College. His support of environmental issues, local and state park docent and manual labor were performed in both Ohio and Florida. Other volunteer services were in Child advocacy, academics, legal, including expansion of Firelands Campus of Bowling Green State University, Guardian ad Litem in Ohio and Florida, foster kids in Ohio and Take Stock in Children in Florida. He was a medical volunteer-mental health, Indian Reservations (spent vacation time there with family), polio vaccine campaign and hospital boards expanding services. As the wife of Dr. Fred Lavender, Jeanne stood by his side, supported and participated with him in many of these volunteer efforts. Dr. Lavenders daily walk to the post of ce from his South Third Street allowed him to become acquainted with townspeople who observed his friendliness, gentle and sincere temperament and immediately regarded him as a friend. Dr. Fred Lavender and wife, Jeanne, were members of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and were faithful to attend monthly First Thursday meetings. Dr. Jerry Kandzer, retired President of Chipola College, who gave the eulogy at Dr. Lavenders memorial service, outlined the laundry list of volunteer activities of Dr. Lavender. The memorial service, held at St. Matthews Episcopal Church of Chipley on Nov. 30, 2013, was presided over by Rev. Ward S. Clarke Jr., Vicar. Dr. Fred Lavender is the loving husband of Jeanne Lavender, devoted father of Jane/Bob, Mary/Milton and Patricia. His daughter, Anne, is deceased. He is also survived by his adored grandchildren, Anne and Beth/James, Emma, Clark/ Shanna and Nathan and great granddaughter, Madeline, and by his protg, Maya. Although Dr. Fred Lavander called Chipley, Florida his home for only the last 20 years of life, he established a name for himself as one ready to give his very best as a volunteer for any honorable and worthwhile community service. His life story would de nitely qualify for a special segment of the Heritage of Washington Book, A Washington County Favorite Son-by choice! The Prattler regrets that his story was not prepared for that popular publication. Hester and I count it a privilege to have known Dr. Fred Lavender and his wonderful wife, Jeanne. Our thoughts, love and prayers go out to Jeanne and family members in their loss. See you all next week.

But he wont be going far. We love Panama City, Quinn said. We put down roots and were going to stay here. Quinn, who joined The Panama City News Herald in August 2012, shortly after its purchase by Halifax Media Group, plans to focus more time on his civic activities like his work with the Salvation Army, where he serves on the board. Halifax Media Group CEO Michael Redding, who was in Panama City for the announcement Monday, thanked Quinn for his hard work and attitude and said a nationwide search for a new publisher would begin immediately. Roger has a distinguished newspaper career, and we are going to miss him, Redding said. He is a great guy, as well as a friend, and we all wish him the best. Quinn began his career in 1966 in Gadsden, Ala., beginning a path that would lead him to a position as a New York Times Regional Media Group publisher. There, he oversaw a group of papers in North and South Carolina that included properties in Spartanburg and Hendersonville before those newspapers were purchased by Halifax late in 2011. After Halifax purchased The News Herald and other Freedom Communications newspapers in Florida and North Carolina in 2012, Quinn joined The News Herald as publisher but also served as regional publisher with responsibility over all the properties in Halifaxs central region, which includes Northwest Florida, Alabama and Louisiana. Halifax is headquartered in Daytona Beach and boasts a strong presence across the Southeast that includes newspapers in key Florida cities like Daytona Beach, Gainesville, Sarasota, Lakeland and Fort Walton Beach.Regional publisher announces retirement ROGErR QUINNSpecial to The NewsAbout 4:18 p.m. Feb. 12, while on patrol, a deputy with the Uniform Patrol Division of the Jackson County Sheriffs Ofce observed a 2006 Nissan in the area of Lakepoint Road and Highway 231 with an expired license plate. A trafc stop was affected at the intersection of Highway 231 and County Line Road. During the initial contact with the driver, Stephen Byrd Hobby of Highway 73 in Clarksville, the deputy said he observed the butt of a rie sticking out from under a jacket in the back seat. The weapon was secured for the ofcers safety during the trafc stop. Before the deputy returned to his patrol vehicle, the driver was asked if there were any other rearms in the vehicle. The driver stated there were none. After an FCIC/NCIC check revealed Hobby was a convicted felon, he was placed under arrest. While waiting on a tow truck during the course of the subsequent inventory search of the vehicle, three additional rearms and ammunition for each was located in the vehicle. The re arms included a .22 caliber pistol, a single shot .357 zip gun and an AR-15 .223 caliber semi-automatic rie. During a search of Hobbys person, a small baggie of marijuana was recovered, according to the police report. Also found in the vehicle was a half-smoked marijuana cigarette and a metal tube that had been converted into a smoking pipe. The pipe contained drug residue, which classies it as paraphernalia. Hobby was lodged in the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await rst appearance. Hobby was charged with possession of a rearm by convicted felon, possession of marijuana less than 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. JCSO makes drug arrest during trafc stopBy PAT McCANN747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com C HI I PLE E Y When Chipley faces Hawthorne in todays Class 1A girls basketball state seminals, the Tigers are likely to see a player in Kimesha Mann they are somewhat familiar with. The sophomore not only leads the Hornets, 20-3, in scoring at 14.4 points per game, her overall game is very impressive. She also leads her team with an average of 7.1 assists and 5.4 steals, and she is third on the squad in rebounding with 5.0. Its just that Chipley, 24-5, has a similar version in junior Amanda Paschal, and the Tigers are quite happy with what they have by comparison. Theyre similar, she produces in different areas, Chipley rst-year varsity head coach Kimberly Tuel said of Mann, possibly a younger model of Paschal. Thats exactly what it looks like. Chipley and Hawthorne tip off at 12:30 p.m. CST. That seminal is preceded by Paxton vs. Chieand, the two winners meeting 11:05 a.m. Thursday for the championship. Paschal is by no means an equivalent to Chris Walker of Holmes County, who nearly single-handedly led the Blue Devils to the 1A boys crown last year and currently plays at the University of Florida. But her contributions to the score sheet indeed verge on incredible. She leads the Tigers in scoring (20.6), rebounding (7.3), assists (5.7) and steals (5.0). And Tuel is more than comfortable with her supporting cast. Amanda is a special player, but we have a lot that rise up to it, Tuel said. We have quite a few that produce. Among them are Karlisha Works, Brittany Lee, Parisha Massaline and Essence Williams, who all average between 6-8 points. Lee, Williams and Works scored in double gures in the region championship victory against Holmes County. Williams is the second-leading rebounder (5.0). Paschal is the lone Chipley player who saw court time when the Tigers lost to South Walton in last years championship game, Tuel did acknowledge that a number of Tigers made the trip, however, and arent going in blind. They know what the experience of traveling to Lakeland, the Tigers leaving at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, and competing at the state level is all about. That process also could provide an advantage against Hawthorne, making its inaugural trip to the Final Four, and with a roster that not only doesnt feature one senior, has only three juniors. The remainder are sophomores, freshmen, and a seventhand eighth-grader. We know theyre young, but otherwise we dont really know much about them, Tuel said. She did sound condent that her ballclub can adjust to just about any style and strategy that it faces today. We do whatever works, Tuel said. Zone, fullcourt, if they want to go halfcourt we can play man-toman halfcourt. We dont just stick to one thing. We make sure that our schedule has bigger schools. We played Alabama schools in a tournament. I put the bar very high. In addition to Mann, Hawthorne boasts sophomore Breanna Fomby with a 9.6 scoring average and junior Brook Burns at 9.1. Burns leads in rebounding at 6.9 with sophomore Keinetra Hills contributing 6.6 rebounds and 6.5 points. High speed cited in boating deathsBy TOM McLAUGHLIN315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn tmclaughlin@nwfdailynews.comNI N I CE E VI I LLE E Former Bay High School basketball coach Robert Williams was an experienced driver especially knowledgeable in boating at night, and yet he likely was operating the vessel that ran into a MidBay Bridge piling, killing him and two others. Excessive speed and operator inattention are blamed in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions nal report on the accident that killed Williams and two young women riding with him in his 2014 336 Cobalt boat early Dec. 6. The paint transfer on the bridge shows that the boat may have almost hit the piling head on. It is possible the operator may have made an evasive maneuver at the last moment, the report states. Bruising Williams sustained appeared to indicate he was driving the boat when it hit the piling, the report states. It said visibility at the time should have been 6 to 9 miles. The damage of the boat indicates the vessel was traveling at a high rate of speed, but that speed is not known, the investigative report states. Efforts to determine the boats exact speed when it hit the bridge were unsuccessful, FWC investigators said. Williams, 47, died in the accident along with Taylor Evanoff, 18, and Jamilia Beltz, 21. All three were intoxicated at the time of the wreck, the report states. Tigers ready for girls basketball Final Four

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com ASection By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com BONIFAY Chipley has some un nished business at the Class 1A state girls basketball tournament. Amanda Paschal scored 24 points and received considerable help from her teammates as the Tigers clinched a second consecutive trip to the state tournament with a 72-62 victory Friday over host Holmes County in the Region 3-1A nals. Chipley (24-5) will face Hawthorne a 51-50 winner over Hamilton County in the state semi nals at The Lakeland Center today. The state championship is Thursday. It was a great experience, Paschal said of last years trip to state, which ended with a loss to South Walton in the championship game. Last year we had a lot of seniors, and everybody wanted to win. ... We have to play harder, play with heart. Holmes County (20-8) outlasted Chipley for the District 3-1A regularseason title and then defeated the Tigers by a point to win the district tournament. Chipley was the superior team in this matchup, but much like it was when the same teams met in the regional nals a year ago. Were trying to build a family, basically, Chipleys Essence Williams said. Jessica Belsers lay-in pulled Holmes County even at 40-40 with four minutes left in the third quarter, but a layup by Parisha Massaline sparked a 9-0 run in a 62-second span that gave the Tigers a 49-40 advantage. Chipley carried a 54-48 lead into the fourth quarter, and the Tigers scored eight of the rst 10 points to pull away. The Blue Devils got no closer than seven points thereafter. Holmes County was desperate to limit Paschal, double-teaming the Chipley standout every time she crossed halfcourt with the ball. That opened up scoring opportunities around the basket, however, and the Tigers pounded the ball inside to great effect. Everybody did great, Paschal said. Everybody stepped up tonight. Kimberly Tuel has been with the Chipley program for three years, she said, but this is her rst season as head coach. We put the bar up high, Tuel said, her voice hoarse from yelling for four quarters in a loud gymnasium. It took hard work to get here. Brittany Lee contributed 16 points for Chipley, and Williams and Karlisha Works chipped in 12 points apiece. Belser led Holmes County with 10 points, and Lenibel Concepcion added nine.CHIPLEY (72)Paschal 24, Lee 16, Works 12, Williams 12, Thomas 1, Massaline 7.HOLMES COUNTY (62)Davis 8, Prescott 8, Belser 10, J.

Evelyn Akhator led Chipola with 18 points, 15 rebounds and four steals. Khadijah Ellison had 11 points with ve assists. The Lady Indians are headed to the FCSAA State Tournament, March 5-8 in Ocala. The mens team held on for an 8382 overtime win over arch-rival Gulf Coast. Chipola had a 19-point lead in the rst half, but Gulf Coast came back to pull ahead in the second half and push the game into overtime. Jamaar McKays layup gave Chipola an 80-76 lead with 18 seconds left in OT, but Gulf Coast made a free throw to cut the lead to thee. With 13 seconds left, Sam Cassell Jr. broke free against the full-court press and was fouled while scoring on a layup. His threepoint play gave the Indians an 83-79 lead with eight seconds left. Chipola (6-4) is tied with Pensacola (6-4) for second place in the league, a half-game behind Northwest (6-3). The top two teams earn a berth to the FCSAA State Tournament in Ocala beginning March 5. The Indians lost to Pensacola 68-64 on Feb. 8. Carlos Morris poured in 27 points and pulled down seven rebounds for the Indians. The loss at Pensacola was the second for the week after falling to Northwest 90-83 on Feb. 5.

The homecoming court will be presented, and the Homecoming Queen and Mr. Chipola will be crowned, during halftime of the mens game.By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com Two of the early boys selections for the Halifax All-Star Classic are still playing basketball. All four will take the court on April 5 in the quest to defeat the West. Malones Chai Baker, Vernons Alex Brown, Mosleys Nat Dixon and Rutherfords Khaliel Spearman have been chosen to represent the East in the 10th annual event to be played at the Billy Harrison Field House on the campus of Gulf Coast State College. Baker and Spearman prepped for respective regional basketball games. Browns season ended in the district round and Dixons before then to hit the football recruiting trail. The East boys will be coached by Mariannas Travis Blanton and Vernons Thomas Register, both of whom are making return appearances in the game. The East teams are chosen by the sports department of The News Herald from an eight-county coverage area. They oppose roster from the West is comprised from the three-county coverage area of the Northwest Florida Daily News stationed in Fort Walton Beach. Baker and Dixon have cemented college destinations, while Brown and Spearman test their options. Baker signed with Oregon State and Dixon is moving on with a football scholarship at Boston College. The duo continues a line of Division I talent playing in the Halifax Classic, dating back to Gracevilles Rashaad Singleton in the inaugural event in 2005. Baker, a 6-foot-3 guard, and Malone hosted Cottondale in the Region 1-1A semi nal on Tuesday. The Tigers were in search of a third consecutive regionalnal berth with the previous two ending in defeat. Baker led them into the contest with 22.7 points and 9.6 rebounds per game and will look to join his brother, Ty, in being a Halifax Classic winner, as the elder sibling was part of last years game. Spearman at 6-2 is Rutherfords leading scorer and has the Rams on the cusp of a second regional nal in three seasons. Rutherford hosted Tallahassee Rickards on Tuesday for the right to advance. The 6-3 Browns campaign ended with a loss to Cottondale in the District 2-1A semi nal. His 33 ppg helped Register guide the Yellow Jackets to a winning record in his rst season at the helm after Vernon amassed 16 losses in 2012-13. Dixon also is capable of scoring at a similar clip with more than 30 ppg as a junior. His production dipped some this season, but hes still one of the areas best shooters and hes not afraid to heave the ball at the basket. The 6-4 guards leaping ability also gives the East some length inside. Complete 12-player rosters for the East and West will be released in early-March. East girls coaches will be selected and announced in the coming weeks and the rst round of East girls player selections also are on the horizon. Player nominations are being accepted. Area coaches in the East coverage area are asked to send player name, position, height, statistics and other pertinent information to Brad Milner at The News Herald via e-mail at bmilner@pcnh. com or by calling (850) 747-5065.

The 82-person crew was released from storm duty late Sunday afternoon and returned to Northwest Florida late Sunday night. They all worked safely and gave hope to customers who had lost power, said Jeff Rogers, Gulf Power Corporate Communications manager. Our crews continue to hone their skills working winter storms this year, and we were glad to help Georgia Powers customers get their power back on. The crews left Feb. 10, donned snow chains, and worked in Jonesboro, Ga., just south of Atlanta most of the week. Over the weekend, they went east to Waynesboro, Ga., to help complete restoration. Georgia Power restored power to more than 700,000 customers. It was the third time this winter Gulf Power crews were called on to restore power. In December, a team went to the Dallas area. And in late January, Gulf Power had to deal with its own winter storm. When the powers out, theres no better sight on your street than a bucket truck rolling up, Rogers said. The experience gained from being deployed to assist in these storms helps our crews be the best they can be right here at home. Gulf Power Company is an investor-owned electric utility with all of its common stock owned by Atlanta-based Southern Company. Gulf Power serves more than 436,000 customers in eight counties throughout Northwest Florida. The companys mission is to safely provide exceptional customer value by delivering reliable, affordable and environmentally responsible electricity while strengthening our communities.

Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser BPAGE 1Section EXTRATrivia FunWilson CaseyWC@Trivia Guy.com By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Eastern Shipbuilding Group is one of three nalists vying for a $10.5 billion U.S. Coast Guard contract that could bring thousands of new jobs to Bay County. The 20-year contract is for the development of 25 nextgeneration offshore patrol cutters for the Coast Guard. This is a huge deal, not just for Eastern Shipbuilding, but for Bay County and Northwest Florida, said company President and CEO Brian DIsernia. Thats tremendous for jobs, for long-term jobs, so naturally were excited. Eastern is one of eight shipyards that submitted proposals for the project and will be competing with nalists in Lockport, La., and Bath, Maine, for the contract. As a nalist, Eastern was awarded about $22 million to design a prototype for the vessel, which must be submitted to the Coast Guard in the next year and a half. Each shipyard proposed a different vessel, and this award of $22 million will be put toward us completing a detailed design and submitting a nal price, DIsernia said. The nal award to the ultimate winner will be based on a combination of design of the vessel and cost. DIsernia said the nalists were chosen based on a conceptual design and proposal submitted to the Coast Guard, which represented more than three years of work. If awarded the project, DIsernia said it would add between 750 and 800 employees to Easterns team of 1,500 and would indirectly create many jobs for the area. With the multiplying effect in the area, thats easily 2,000 to 2,500 jobs, said DIsernia, who noted the contract is the largest the company has ever bid on. If Eastern were awarded the contract, DIsernia said it also could lead to facility expansion at one or both of the Panama City shipyards, depending on the companys other workload. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said in a press release Wednesday that he was con dent in Easterns capabilities in developing the vessels. I think Eastern makes a lot of sense given its facilities, capabilities of its workforce and solid track record in this industry, said Nelson, a senior member of the Senates Armed Services Committee and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over the Coast Guard. U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, said the contract would bring a much needed boost to the regions economy. Should Eastern Shipbuilding win this contract, it will provide a tremendous boost to Northwest Floridas economy and bring hundreds of well-paying, highlyskilled construction jobs to our community, Southerland said. When asked if he had any concerns about nding enough skilled workers if Eastern wins the project, DIsernia said he was con dent in the companys capabilities. Weve managed, through hiring and training, to gainfully employ 1,500 skilled people, and we think we could cover this project as weve done in the past, DIsernia said. Were going to work like heck for a year and a half, and hope to win (the project). $10.5 billion deal?Eastern Shipbuilding nalist for Coast Guard contract HEATHER LEIPHART | File photoThe Bravante VI slides into the water during a launching ceremony at Eastern Shipbuilding Group on Aug. 5 in Panama City.

Faith EVENTSLearning the great art of kneeologyGeorge Mueller had just nished spending some quality time with a young missionary headed for China. He was enthralled by the vision this young man had to reach an entire country for Christ. J. Hudson Taylor was going to China without any sponsorship of any kind, except God. Mueller found in Taylor a kindred spirit and his heart was stirred. If anyone understood the life of trusting God, it was George Mueller. After Taylor left, Mueller felt a burden upon his heart for this young missionary that he could not shake. Never once did Taylor ask Mueller for money or even talk about where the money would come from, but spoke excitedly about what God was going to do without any regard of who was going to pay the bill. Monies were needed to support the vision Taylor had for reaching the country of China. Without saying anything to anybody, Mueller begin praying and trusting God for 100,000 for the mission in China. He set a day when the monies needed to be in and told absolutely no one, On the appointed day, monies began coming in from everywhere. Even Mueller was a little shocked at the overwhelming response to his prayer. People really did not know what was behind all of this giving but were impressed by God to give. Mueller understood what was behind it. God was behind it. Before that day ended over 100,000, the amount Mueller was trusting God for, had come in. How do you explain that? Todays giving is predicated upon an advertising campaign. Thousands of dollars are spent hiring rms specializing in fundraising campaigns. Advertisements are created to lure people into giving. Celebrities are hired to plead the cause. Strategies are used to convince people that if they give they will get something back in return. This all in a ploy to raise money, supposedly to do kingdom work. Years ago, I ran across something Dr. Moody Stuart set down as rules, which guided his own prayer life. I put them in the front of my Bible constantly to remind me of these things. 1. Pray until you pray. 2. Pray until you are conscious of being heard. 3. Pray until you receive an answer. These three things will go a long way in turning our prayer life into a dynamic encounter with God that actually accomplishes great things for God. Kingdom work demands the employment of kingdom principles.EVERYBODY PRAYSIt is safe to say that everybody prays, even those who say they do not believe in prayer. All that needs to happen is some incident or an accident and people instinctively turned to prayer. Those who do not believe in prayer succumb to prayer in times of trouble. Remember 9/11 Everybody prays but few have a proper foundation upon which to build their prayer ministry. Prayer is not some magical formula that applies to both saved and unsaved alike. Some believe if you have the right formula, the right ritual or the right words that God has to answer that prayer. It does not matter if your life is contrary to the nature of God. It does not matter, or so they think, if you are not walking with God day by day. God has to answer your prayer. All you have to do is just say the magical formula in Jesus name in your prayer is on its way. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no way anybody can back God into a corner and get Him to do something contrary to His will.THE PRIVILEGE OF PRAYERPrayer is the privilege of the believer. No greater honor could be laid upon the heart of the Christian. The foundation of a proper prayer life is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ. Apart from Him, we have no access to God the Father. The tragedy of this whole situation is that all of the prayers of the unsaved are baseless and get no higher than the ceiling. In order to penetrate the heavens and ascend to the Throne of God we must have an advocate, a mediator, which is none other than Jesus Christ. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5). Only through Christ will my prayers get through to God, the Father. Imagine spending your whole life praying to a God that does not exist. Imagine, after a life of hardship and toil you nd out you really were not praying at all but rather mumbling words and phrases that had no signi cance to it at all. The proper foundation for prayer is Jesus Christ. Even those with a proper foundation often misuse prayer. The apostle James pointed this out in his epistle, Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. (James 4:3). This is praying contrary to Gods will. How much time is wasted on nonessentials and non-kingdom stuff? Relatively few have accepted the necessary discipline for this kind of work. Some have a reputation of being a prayer warrior, which is really an oxymoron. A prayer warriors work is covert spiritual work of which most people do not know is going on. These great Saints have no reputation but have found the secret place of spiritual potency and are being employed by the Holy Spirit to engage the enemy in spiritual warfare. No glamour No celebrity status No spotlight. Just wrestling with the powers of darkness. This is praying down the enemy and all his forces around him. These great saints that have populated each generation of Christendom have attended the school of prayer and learned the great art of kneeology. DR. JAMES L. SNYDEROut to Pastor

MillsAnn Sheppard Gordy (Grann), loving wife, mother, sister and grandmother, departed this earth on Feb. 13, 2014, at Westminster Oaks, in Tallahassee. Ann was born in Chipley, on Sept. 4, 1928, to Oscar Lee and Ethel Sheppard. Ann attended Washington County schools and was a 1946 graduate of Chipley High School and a 1950 graduate of the Florida State College for Women/ Florida State University (B.S. in Home Economics and M.S. in Library Science). After marrying the love of her life, Paul, she taught in the Washington County School System for 33 years. Her rst years were spent teaching Home Economics at Chipley High School before she transitioned to Kate M. Smith Elementary School where she taught the Fifth Grande and Elementary School Music. Ann ended her work career as the Media Specialist which was a natural t given her love of reading-as a fth grade teacher, she instilled the love of reading to her students by reading to them each day after their lunch break. As betting home economics major, Ann was an outstanding cook. She took great joy in keeping her friends and family well fed, particularly when family returned home for visits. Ann especially enjoyed cooking for her grandson, Casey, and she loved every minute she spent with her only grandchild. Ann was an extremely talented musician who played both the piano and organ, and her love of music was rst reected in her dedicated service as the accompanist for the Chipley High School Chorus during her high school career. Additionally, after singing in the choir as a youngster, Ann served as the organist for the First United Methodist Church of Chipley during her entire high school career. She later resumed her organist activities from 1960 to 1986, and also sang in the choir (1987-2007). Throughout her life, Ann served on multiple church committees and particularly loved her service to the United Methodist Women. Ann served as President of the UMW for several years and also served as a District Representative for the Pensacola West Florida District. In addition to being an amazingly talented person, Anns love and devotion to her family was second only to her love of God. Ann served as President of the Junior Womens Club in 1951 and 1952 and was an active member of the Spanish Trail Playhouse. As a member of the STP, she and her family were cast members in the musical productions of Carousel and Showboat. Ann was also an exceptionally talented seamstress who spent countless hours exercising her creativity by making clothing, accessories and anything else that was needed. During her retirement years, Ann spent hours making items such as tote bags, aprons and draperies, and she enjoyed taking sewing classes with her friends at the Washington County Area Vocational Technical School. Her creations were always made to serve as gifts for friends and/or to be sold in conjunction with a church bazaar. Ann and Paul loved to travel and upon their retirement, they took advantage of many opportunities to travel abroad as well as in the United States. Ann was an exceptionally talented vacation planner long before the Internet made it easy and she was responsible for planning all of their trips from the rst out of the country family vacation to Mexico in 1965, to Europe, Hawaii and most of the U.S. national parks. Ann experienced a major stroke in 2007 which changed everybodys world but especially Pauls. However, despite all of the difculties and lifestyle changes, Pauls constant devotion to his Ann was an inspiration to all and there was no doubt that he adored the prettiest girl in the world. She was predeceased by her parents, O.L. and Ethel Sheppard, and her nephew Greg Booth (Gayla). Ann is survived by her husband of 65 years, Paul Gordy; her daughter, Paula Gordy Cook (Skip); her son, Steve Gordy (Ruth); her grandson, Casey Cook (ance Shaunna Boggs); his sister, Sarah Sheppard Booth (Ormond); her sisterin-law, Molly Gordy, and her niece, Elizabeth Coley (Chuck).

THECAMPAIGNFOROURCOMMUNITYSUNIVERSITYEndowmentforTomorrowsJobs SUPPORTOUR COMMUNITYS UNIVERSITY Special to ExtraOver the past 20 years, Goodwill Manasota has not only created thousands of jobs in its local region, but it has also helped increase revenues by the millions at other Goodwills around the globe. Goodwill Manasota, based in Sarasota, Fla., has developed an award winning business model that has been replicated all over the world. The powerhouse non-prot organization will take it one step further in 2014, when it opens a 29,000-square-foot international training center to provide its Mission Development Services program. Formalized in 2001, the MDS program teaches other Goodwill organizations how to rene and expand their enterprises, creating jobs and mission opportunities through improved business operations. We identify and partner with Goodwills around the country that are challenged or have territories that are being underserved, and teach them how to streamline their operations, said Bob Rosinsky, president and CEO of Goodwill Manasota. We train them on acquiring and retaining donors, managing staff and employees, and we provide them with expertise on managing real estate, he said. At a Goodwill in Northern Arizona, headquartered in Flagstaff, that assistance made a multi-million dollar difference between 2003-2012, and saved that Goodwill from disaster. The organization was barely able to keep its doors open, drifting towards bankruptcy, recalls David Hirsch, CEO of the once struggling Goodwill Industries of Northern Arizona. It didnt have the donations to justify its stores, and it wasnt properly handling the donations it did receive. It was losing community support and board members as a result, slowly sinking into oblivion, Hirsch said. This crisis led concerned board members to reach out to the highly successful Goodwill Manasota for advice. Goodwill Industries of Northern Arizona was then operating six retail centers without a single dedicated donation center. Its annual revenue was just under $1.6 million. It was losing over $30,000 each month. Goodwill Manasota worked with the Flagstaff team to develop a strategic plan and to provide operational guidance. When the Goodwill Manasota team arrived, one of the rst things they did was recommended closing one store. They got the board to see that they really needed to make tough decisions if we were to survive. They also recruited and retained me as the new CEO, said Hirsch. For several months, the MDS team, led by current Goodwill Manasota CEO Bob Rosinsky, provided training to staff and management on how to efciently move donations from the back room to the sales oor. Sales soon began to increase by double digits. As donor service improved, so did donations, said Hirsch. Fast-forward ten years, and Goodwill Industries of Northern Arizona currently operates six retail stores, nine donation centers and ve Job Connection centers. Annual revenues exceeded $5 million in 2012. It opened a 13,000square-foot store in Bullhead City in 2008, three hours away from Flagstaff. A new headquarters and Goodwill Good Neighbor Center was opened in 2012. The Goodwill of Northern Arizona plans on opening another Good Neighbor Center in Lake Havasu in 2014, and also plans to open four more donation centers. The growth and development activities continue to be a major part of our relationship with Goodwill Manasota today, explains Hirsch. Goodwill Manasota has had similar success stories in 11 territories across the United States including: Lafayette, La.; Tucson, Ariz.; Memphis, Tenn.; Reno, Nevada; Austin, Texas; Flagstaff, Ariz.; Houston, Texas; Tallahassee, Fla.; Mobile, Ala.; and Washington, D.C. Internationally, Goodwill Manasota has assisted several countries with technical assistance and it maintains partnerships in Alberta, Niagara, London, Montreal, Toronto and Sarnia, Canada. Goodwill Manasota also partners with others to develop part or all of a territory, using its own capital for development. The MDS program currently works in territories in Marinette, Wis. and Northern Mississippi for this purpose. It assists local staff to build out the territory and works with that staff to oversee the day-today operations. The goal of this strategy is to develop the territory and eventually turn a mature operation back to the partner Goodwill. The MDS partnerships create business-to-business relationships that ultimately benet both organizations, said Bob Rosinsky. When Goodwill Manasota assumed control of the Northern Mississippi territory in 2008, it had annual revenues of approximately $1.6 million, employed 30 people and was serving about 78,000 donors from its two retail locations. Annual revenues exceeded $12.7 million in 2012, 250 people were employed and 225,000 donors were assisted from 17 retail stores. The international training center in Bradenton, Florida is expected to open in the summer of 2014. It will be part of a new $13million, 65,000-square-foot corporate campus. The expansion effort will create more than 30 local jobs in a 36,000-square-foot retail operation. The new site will consolidate staff to enhance the productivity required to provide professional services, employment counseling and training for additional students. Goodwill Manasota currently operates 33 donation centers and 18 retail stores in Floridas Sarasota, Manatee, DeSoto and Hardee Counties. It employs over 750 people, nearly 100 of which are severely disabled. This year, it helped place more than 500 people into jobs and helped to provide more $30 million in wages.Goodwill to open international training centerSPECIAL TO EE XTRAEmployees of Goodwill Manasota are pictured with Bob Rosinsky, president and CEO.

By Carol Kent 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com “We’ve gotten too far away from the Lord and the land. When you don’t own land, you don’t appreciate what it takes to put food on the table.” That belief is what led to Dr. Bruce Christmas Sr.’s dedication to educating future generations about the importance of agriculture and the role it plays in the economy, a life mission which recently earned the Jackson County native a spot in the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame. As an agent with the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service, Christmas is respected for his research in poultry science. But it’s his work to promote agriculture as a whole and educate children about its value for which the genial fth generation farmer is perhaps best known. His message emphasizes the importance of American agriculture as the safest, lease expensive food supply in the world and its connection to “everything we have and do as Americans.” Christmas spent seven years in Orange County, FL as an Extension Agent, where he helped develop and run urban 4-H clubs. “A lot of folks asked why I bothered,” says Christmas. “They said ‘Those city kids will never be farmers.’ I told them I wasn’t trying to make them farmers; I was trying to teach them the value of agriculture and how it impacts their lives. These kids would be consumers one day, and they needed to understand and appreciate where their food came from.” Christmas moved to Washington County in 1969, where he worked at Chipley’s Poultry Evaluation Center. His eld research soon became widely published, helping earn him the Harms Publication Award for best poultry publication in 1983. He’s also been recognized by many organizations for his leadership and volunteer service to youth, having given over 16,000 hours of volunteer service and traveled over 65,000 non-reimbursed miles to tell the story of agriculture. He was inducted into the Florida 4-H Hall of Fame, has served on the UF College of Agriculture and Life Science board for many years and was previously chosen “National Volunteer of the Year” for the National Agriculture Alumni and Development Association. Over the course of 20 years, more than 5,000 Washington County youth, teachers and parents have participated in eld days, Ag in the Classroom and Youth Fair events and activities in which Christmas was an integral part of planning, funding and teaching.

See CHRISTMAS A2 CHRISTMAS INDUCTED INTO FLORIDA AGRICULTURAL HALL OF FAME A Chipley man is being held, without bond, in Washington State’s Pierce County Jail this week, after being charged with the alleged repeated rape of a ten-year old family member. According to investigators, Army Sgt. Joseph French, 27, reportedly sexually abused a female victim over a period of three years, both at a private Washington residence and on the joint base, Lewis-McChord, where he was stationed. French is accused of tying the victim’s wrists and feet to a swing during the attacks, which he reportedly broadcast to another military service member and a female viewer through Skype. A hearing is set for Thursday, Feb. 28, in Washington. Chipley man charged with rape JOSEPH FRENCH By Cecilia Spears CHIPLEY — What would you do to save someone you love? This is the question that led young author Brittany Hawes through a series of ideas that would bloom to be her rst novel. Hawes is a 20-year-old Chipola College student and a 2012 graduate of Vernon High School who recently had her rst novel, “Twisted,” published by Deep Sea Publishing in Herndon, Va. Having her book published was part of Hawkins’ prize as the winner of the company’s 2013 Young Author Contest “I’m a Chipola sophomore with one more year to compete my associate’s degree in communication,” Hawes said. “I love to read, and that is why I wrote my own story. I got the idea when I was writing, and I thought, ‘What would you do to save someone you love?’” Hawes then spun a tale about a homeless orphan living on Skid Row after her parents mysteriously vanished when she was 8 years old, leaving her to care for herself. The adventure begins when she dedicates her life to spend her every waking moment in the pursuit to nd her missing parents. She soon nds answers that only lead to more questions as the story develops Young author publishes rst novel BRITTANY HAWES See NOVEL A2 ‘A foundation we can count on’ Staff Report The Tallahassee Police Department Special Victims Unit is asking for help from residents in the Washington County area in a continued effort to locate Michael McNamara, a 17-yearold missing person.

McNamara might also use the name “Michael Lopez.” TPD has reason to believe he is in the Chipley area. Anyone with information about McNamara’s whereabouts is asked to call the Tallahassee Police Department at 6065800, the Chipley Police Department at 638-6310, or the Washingotn County Sheriff’s Of ce at 638-6111 TPD seeks missing man MICHAEL MCNAMARA

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, February 19, 2014 Staff Report The Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce has located Casey Jean Anderson, a 27year-old Ponce de Leon who was reported missing by his mother from their home on the evening of Sunday, Feb. 16. Earlier that evening, the sheriff’s of ce received a call of a suspicious person in the area of Simmons Lane, south of Ponce de Leon. The caller reported the subject was knocking on their door asking for water and matched Anderson’s description. Anderson was located the morning of Tuesday, Feb. 18, after deputies spent two nights searching in a densely wooded area. He was transported for treatment by Holmes County EMS. Anderson reportedly was suffering from a brain injury and had not been taking his medication. Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown would like to thank the Walton County Sheriff’s Of ce, the Bay County Sheriff’s Of ce and the Florida Department of Corrections K-9 teams from Holmes and Walton C.I. for their assistance. Julie Pigott Dillard, who helped nominate Christmas for his most recent honor, was among those students. “I visited the ‘egg-laying contest’ on school eld trips and was later coached as an FFA member on a state winning poultry team by (Christmas),” recalls Dillard. “His honors and awards speak for themselves, but it’s my obligation to speak on his dedication, love and respect for agriculture. You are likely to never meet someone so passionate for agriculture as Dr. Christmas.” “Throughout his life, he has been an outspoken advocate for the national and state food systems as safe, wholesome and the best value for the dollar,” she adds. “He is a tireless advocate for the rights of farmers and ranchers and is always willing to speak on their behalf. Although he is of cially retired, he will never retire from his position as agricultural advocate.” H. Fred Dietrich, also mentored by Christmas, took part in his nomination for the hall of fame honor as well. “It was his example that encouraged me to go into agricultural youth work as a career and to be in leadership of many agricultural professional organizations,” says Dietrich. Dr. Christmas has been married for more than 50 years to Addie Ann, and they have four sons: Stuart, Bruce, Jr., Jonathan and Scott. He’s an active member of First Baptist Church of Chipley, Chipley Kiwanis and President of the Washington County Farm Bureau, where he continues to give time to those who need him. Still, ensuring the success of agriculture here remains his passion. “Agriculture allows us to have the standard of living that we do,” says Christmas. “We eat cheaper (in the United States) than any other country on Earth. Agriculture is the backbone of our economy, and it’s a foundation we can count on.” Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam and the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame Foundation made the announcement to induct Christmas and three other honorees into the 2014 Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame at the Florida State Fair in Tampa Tuesday, Feb. 11. “These individuals have made incredible contributions to agriculture in our state and beyond,” Commissioner Putnam said. “The changes and improvements they have made will help ensure the strength of Florida’s $100 billion agriculture for generations to come.” Z n hƒ s } p s ˆ qz n% FIND US in P rin t O nline and on the R oad! b onifa yno w .c om W e a re all things L o c al!

NOVEL from page A1 Police nd missing Ponce de Leon man CASEY JEAN ANDERSON BY KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Florida education of cials have of cially adopted a handful of changes to school standards known as “Common Core State Standards.” The changes were adopted Tuesday during a State Board of Education meeting in Orlando. The benchmarks for learning in language arts and math were adopted by Florida in 2010 and have been approved by more than 40 other states. The standards were developed by a coalition of state leaders and establish what a student should know to be prepared for college and the workforce. State Education Commissioner Pam Stewart also says she remains “on track” to make a decision in March regarding a new statewide testing assessment. It will replace existing tests which are primarily known as the FCAT. Those changes would go into effect next school year.

With erce global competition, the U.S. was facing a startling shortage of scientists. Since the initiative began in 2009, Florida 4-H has em braced preparing the next generations of scientists through club programs, camps, school enrichment and after-school programs. In January, more than 30 4-H agents and volunteers met in Quincy for an intense one-and-a-half-day training in 4-H robotics. Grantees went through lessons from the Junk Drawer Robotics curriculum and 4-H Robot ics: Engineering for Today and Tomorrow to learn the engineering design process, how to apply 4-H Essential Elements through robotics programs and recruitment strategies for new volun teers and funding sources. Participants explored the LEGO Mindstorm robotics kits by building the CowBot robot, programming it and participating in challenges. Not only did they collect and interpret data, but they had to analyze their data to make adjustments in their programming to successful ly meet their challenges just as their 4-H youth would. Over the next year, Wash ington County 4-H will be introducing day camp pro grams in robotics and col laborating with the Wash ington County School Dis trict to create an afterschool robotics 4-H Club.

The bill would explicitly dene a growler as a 32-ounce, 64-ounce, 128-ounce, 1-liter or 2-liter contain er made to “hold malt beverages.” The 64-ounce size is standard for growlers, according to a staff analysis of the bill. The brewers have pushed for legalization of the larger size since last year. The bill also would allow beer manufacturers to run a tap room and sell beer to patrons without a vendor’s license. The beer could be sold for onand off-premise con sumption. Phone or mail orders would not be allowed. The manufacturer would brew the beer sold in the tap room on site or ship it in from another brew ery it owns. At least 70 percent of tap room sales a year would need to be brewed on site. Off-premise consumption sales would be limited to growlers and other authorized containers. The bill also would allow manu facturers and distributers to hold on-premise beer tastings. Brewers largely support the bill but want some minor adjustments. “We’re very much in favor of the work you’re doing,” said Craig Birkmaier, vice president of Flori da Brewers Guild. “Obviously, we have positions and would like to work with you to tweak the bill to meet all of those.” The bill was opposed by an antidrug and alcohol group. State Rep. Darryl Rouson not ed both retailers and brewers still had concerns about the legislation. And even though the bill sailed through the Business & Profes sional Regulation Subcommittee, the Democratic ranking member from St. Petersburg indicated his caucus might have problems with it down the road. The bill “impacts not just the distributors and the brewers, but also has impact on the consumer, who I think at the end of the day is the most important person that we need to be concerned about,” Rouson said. Chairman Debbie Mayeld, RVero Beach, pointed out a growler bill was led last year, which the committee did not take up. She said it would have affected more than just growlers, affecting the state’s three-tier system for beer sales — manufacturers with ven dor’s licenses, tap rooms attached to a manufacturers’ premises and brew pubs that sell beer brewed on site. Mayeld said the bill was “very difcult” to craft and draws a “very ne line.” “We were coming from the standpoint of trying to protect the three-tiered system — at the same time of allowing an industry to grow,” she said. The committee also passed a bill (HB 387), which would put more precise language on in-store tastings. The third bill the committee approved would let beer be sold in any size — including any size growler — at retail stores in the state. Beer bills advance in House Robotics provide unique opportunities for 4-H’ers

OPINION A Page 4 Section Agri-tourism is a term Ive been hearing for several years now, and I believe we have been somewhat involved in it from the beginning in 1987 at our blueberry business on Hwy 79. We are interested in capitalizing on our ideal location as much as possible. For that reason, when we were informed about a workshop in Quincy last week, I quickly made reservations for our son Glen, Jack and myself to attend. Our Extension agent, Shep Eubanks, Julia Bullington, Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Director, Mark and Carla Templeton of The Silver Door art studio all attended from Holmes County. Julia is on the Board of Directors for River Way South who sponsored the event. I learned much at the workshop, a new word, for one thing. Riparian. That is a term describing a geographic area whose boundary is a moving body of water. River Way South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee or RWSAC is counterpart to a parent organization started earlier to represent the interests of the Georgia, Alabama and Florida watershed. But RWSAC represents the interests of the riparian counties of Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, and Washington. Since Florida is a tourist state, we believe that tourists are missing some of this areas rich agricultural, cultural, historical, maritime, and nature based resources. Much of these resources are located in the rural areas: thus, agri-tourism is born. The leader of the workshop we attended at the U of F Research Center in Quincy was International Agri-tourism Specialist Jane Eckert who knows about the subject from personal experience. She is a sixth generation farmers daughter whose family operates an apple farm which has evolved over the years into an agri-tourist attraction that hosts 400,000 guests annually. She has a degree in business administration and left the family farm to work in agri-marketing for 15 years. Returning to the farm she guided the expansion into agri-tourism. She now operates an Agricultural Marketing Company. She is an approved speaker and consultant by Florida Department of Economic Development and the USDA. She has earned many honors including Hall of Fame by The Direct Marketing Association. Some notes from her workshop: People visit farm destinations for the scenery, to visit family and friends, participate in farm activities, and to buy products. The visitor wants things to see, things to do, things to buy, and things to taste. Eckert recommends starting with a commodity; adding value; deliver a service; provide an experience. To get started, she says Evaluate your familys commitment, evaluate the physical assets of your property, determine your nancial comfort level, and target your customers. Then she gave recommendations for expanding what you sell; services and activities you might offer; special events you might host. She emphasized that trained and friendly staff is crucial. She stressed that we are in the hospitality business! A portion of the workshop dealt with legal aspects of an on the farm enterprise. The Florida Legislature has passed legislation favorable to agri-tourism (570.96 and sub sections.) However each operator must be aware of possible risks and protect himself from liability. She highly recommends having a web site to keep the consumer aware of your business. Our experience over 25 plus years in limited agri-tourism has been most pleasant. We hope to continue and expand our services through this medium. We encourage others in our area to develop your opportunity. A trail of tours will be established in the future by the RWSAC and you may join the organization. Of cers are Pres. Homer Hirt, Lake Seminole, Vice President Betty Webb Apalachicola, Secretary John Thornton West Florida Electric Cooperative, and Treasurer Heather Lopez Washington County.

Not only was the information gained at this workshop, the networking with other entrepreneurs and information gained from them was invaluable. www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, February 19, 2014 Not fooled by Southerlands deceptiveness Dear Editor, As the polls show, and as many of you are aware, there is a growing disdain for our politicians in Washington. The 2013 Congress was dubbed the Do Nothing Congress. Their partisanship and obstructionism is sti ing our country and the wellbeing of our citizens. Our congressman is no exception. Congressman Steve Southerland voted with his extreme Tea Party colleagues to shut down the government last October, which cost the American taxpayers $24 billion. That money would have gone a long way toward feeding the poor. Then he voted with the same colleagues to keep the government shut down and not pay the bills he and the rest of Congress appropriated to begin with, all because he opposed Obamacare. He has not put forth an alternative to Obamacare, and when he signed up for it he took advantage of a federal subsidy provided by the taxpayers in order to lower his premiums, even though he says his $174,000 congressional salary is not so much. Southerland voted for the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 because the Republican leadership convinced most House Republicans to do so, to avoid another embarrassing shutdown. He is now against what he voted for, and is twisting it around to get votes from Tyndall Air Force Base. Within days after his vote he said, With two years remaining before these COLA changes are due to take effect, I am hopeful the House will address the concerns of our retirees between now and then. We did not send Southerland to Washington to be hopeful of what the House will do between now and then, we sent him there to be a leader and do what is right for us now. If he is so concerned about the COLA cuts, he should never have voted for the budget to begin with. In a News Herald article, Southerland stated, I voted against sequestration in 2011 because I knew it was wrong for North and Northwest Floridas military. Actually, he voted against a compromise bill that would lead to sequestration if Congress could not pass a budget. Sequestration was supposed to be so terrible it would force both parties to come together and pass a budget in the future. The compromise, as bad as it was, temporally funded the government and prevented a government shutdown. If all congressmen had voted against the compromise bill, like Southerland did, it would have led to another shutdown. Southerland attached an amendment to the Farm Bill cutting food stamps by $39 billion, which caused the much-needed bill our farmers depend on to fail for the rst time ever. Ironically, Southerland stated in his Christmas address, Dear Friend, as we gather with our loved ones and re ect upon our personal blessings this Christmas holiday season, let us be mindful of those who are less fortunate. Yet he is determined to make harsh slashes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Is taking food away from 47 million poor people being mindful of those who are less fortunate? Southerland has fought against widely successful commercial shing programs since taking of ce in 2010, but a member of his staff told a commercial sherman last December at a shing meeting in Tampa that Southerland changed his mind and is now willing to work with commercial shermen. Is this because he is running against a formidable opponent for his house seat this November? It may be too late for him to garner support from commercial shermen since, through a grassroots effort, commercial shermen from Key West to Brownsville, Texas, who are not even in Southerlands district, have donated much more to his opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, than he has received from his dark-money billionaire contributors. As one of those shermen, I am not fooled by Southerlands deceptiveness, and I hope this letter sheds some light on his hypocrisy. Instead of a congressman who does photo ops and makes statements for personal political ambitions, we need a leader in Congress who will truly reach across the aisle and work with both parties and independents, not just for the bene t of our district, but for the sake of our country. That person is Mrs. Gwen Graham. Jim Clements Carrabelle Letter to the EDITOR Doctor Clinton Frederick (Fred) Lavender died, after a brief illness, on Nov. 5, 2013, in Panama City at the age of 91. Dr. Lavender was stricken while visiting his devoted wife, Jeanne Lavender, who was a patient in the hospital at the time. Dr. Lavender made his home in Chipley at 782 Third Street since his marriage to Jeanne Welin on Aug. 21, 1993. Their meeting and marriage presents a most interesting story. Jeanne came to make her home in Chipley in 1990 after retiring from her AT&T job in Bernardsville, N.J., her home state. This lady had come to know telephone employee, Ann Davis, a fellow telephone company employee, upon her transferring to New Jersey on her job. This was soon after the unfortunate death of son, Mark Davis, who was a student at West Point when stricken with a fatal disease. The friendship developed with Ann Davis and husband, Albert (Sonny) Davis, resulting in Jeanne purchasing a home in the Historic District of Chipley and moving here. Jeanne quickly became involved in church, civic, fraternal and other professional organizations, soon becoming fully immersed in the activities of her adopted home. After becoming established in Chipley, she attended a session of Elderhostel training in Feb. 1993 in Columbus, Ga. While there, she met Dr. Fred Lavender who was also an active member and participant in Elderhostel, Inc., the not-for-pro t world leader in lifelong learning since 1975. Jeanne described the purpose of the organizations as: A continuing education program designed for those age 50 years and older to participate. This lady learned that her new found friend was born in Mans eld, Ohio on Aug. 19, 1922, to a horse and buggy doctors family and that his wife, Mary Ann Lavender, had died recently and he was a father and grandfather of loving children. The friendship soon blossomed into a courtship and plans were soon made to have a private wedding at Holmes Creek Baptist Church with a mammoth reception held afterwards on the spacious yard at Jeannes Third Street Home. The couple honored your writer by requesting that I arrange for a bluegrass musical group to perform traditional music for the celebration. Addison and Ann Prescott were to cater a full lunch sitdown meal, serving soul foods prepared from vegetables grown in their garden. Marshall Smith, his wife, Linda and their daughter, Sophie, members of the bluegrass ensemble, Up The Creek from Panama City, did a beautiful rendition of appropriate songs for the event. Later, a second reception was held in Freds home state of Ohio where a oating vessel provided a two hour cruise, entertaining a host of the grooms friends, family and associates. Jeanne had already learned that her husband-to-be started his volunteering in his childhood, achieving Eagle Scout. He played in a dance band during high school, and met Frank Sinatra and Tommy Dorsey. During school, he achieved honors including Phi Beta Kappa for undergraduate and medical school recognition. Also revealed was that Dr. Lavender served in the U.S. Armys Occupation of Germany, achieving the rank of Captain. The new bride could not have been surprised when the doctor continued to volunteer for the Literacy and Library programs for children and adults in Florida as he had done in Ohio. His involvement in Music, Arts and the annual Cleveland Orchestra Concert Series in Sandusky Ohio were carried over to the Spanish Trail Playhouse in Chipley and similar programs at Chipola College. His support of environmental issues, local and state park docent and manual labor were performed in both Ohio and Florida. Other volunteer services were in Child advocacy, academics, legal, including expansion of Firelands Campus of Bowling Green State University, Guardian ad Litem in Ohio and Florida, foster kids in Ohio and Take Stock in Children in Florida. He was a medical volunteer-mental health, Indian Reservations (spent vacation time there with family), polio vaccine campaign and hospital boards expanding services. As the wife of Dr. Fred Lavender, Jeanne stood by his side, supported and participated with him in many of these volunteer efforts. Dr. Lavenders daily walk to the post of ce from his South Third Street allowed him to become acquainted with townspeople who observed his friendliness, gentle and sincere temperament and immediately regarded him as a friend. Dr. Fred Lavender and wife, Jeanne, were members of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and were faithful to attend monthly First Thursday meetings. Dr. Jerry Kandzer, retired President of Chipola College, who gave the eulogy at Dr. Lavenders memorial service, outlined the laundry list of volunteer activities of Dr. Lavender. The memorial service, held at St. Matthews Episcopal Church of Chipley on Nov. 30, 2013, was presided over by Rev. Ward S. Clarke Jr., Vicar. Dr. Fred Lavender is the loving husband of Jeanne Lavender, devoted father of Jane/Bob, Mary/Milton and Patricia. His daughter, Anne, is deceased. He is also survived by his adored grandchildren, Anne and Beth/James, Emma, Clark/ Shanna and Nathan and great granddaughter, Madeline, and by his protg, Maya. Although Dr. Fred Lavander called Chipley, Florida his home for only the last 20 years of life, he established a name for himself as one ready to give his very best as a volunteer for any honorable and worthwhile community service. His life story would de nitely qualify for a special segment of the Heritage of Washington Book, A Washington County Favorite Son-by choice! The Prattler regrets that his story was not prepared for that popular publication. Hester and I count it a privilege to have known Dr. Fred Lavender and his wonderful wife, Jeanne. Our thoughts, love and prayers go out to Jeanne and family members in their loss. See you all next week.

But he won’t be going far. “We love Panama City,” Quinn said. “We put down roots and we’re going to stay here.” Quinn, who joined The Panama City News Herald in August 2012, shortly after its purchase by Halifax Media Group, plans to focus more time on his civic activities like his work with the Salvation Army, where he serves on the board. Halifax Media Group CEO Michael Redding, who was in Panama City for the announcement Monday, thanked Quinn for his hard work and attitude and said a nationwide search for a new publisher would be gin immediately. “Roger has a distin guished newspaper career, and we are going to miss him,” Redding said. “He is a great guy, as well as a friend, and we all wish him the best.” Quinn began his career in 1966 in Gadsden, Ala., beginning a path that would lead him to a position as a New York Times Regional Media Group publisher. There, he oversaw a group of papers in North and South Caro lina that included properties in Spar tanburg and Hendersonville before those newspapers were purchased by Halifax late in 2011. After Halifax purchased The News Herald and other Freedom Commu nications newspapers in Florida and North Carolina in 2012, Quinn joined The News Herald as publisher but also served as regional publisher with responsibility over all the prop erties in Halifax’s central region, which includes Northwest Florida, Alabama and Louisiana. Halifax is headquartered in Day tona Beach and boasts a strong pres ence across the Southeast that in cludes newspapers in key Florida cit ies like Daytona Beach, Gainesville, Sarasota, Lakeland and Fort Walton Beach. Regional publisher announces retirement ROGE rR QUINN Special to The News About 4:18 p.m. Feb. 12, while on patrol, a deputy with the Uniform Patrol Di vision of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Ofce observed a 2006 Nissan in the area of Lakepoint Road and High way 231 with an expired license plate. A trafc stop was affected at the inter section of Highway 231 and County Line Road. During the initial con tact with the driver, Stephen Byrd Hobby of Highway 73 in Clarksville, the deputy said he observed the butt of a rie sticking out from un der a jacket in the back seat. The weapon was secured for the ofcer’s safety dur ing the trafc stop. Before the deputy re turned to his patrol vehicle, the driver was asked if there were any other rearms in the vehicle. The driver stat ed there were none. After an FCIC/NCIC check revealed Hobby was a convicted felon, he was placed under arrest. While waiting on a tow truck dur ing the course of the subse quent inventory search of the vehicle, three additional rearms and ammunition for each was located in the vehicle. The re arms in cluded a .22 caliber pistol, a single shot .357 “zip gun” and an AR-15 .223 caliber semi-automatic rie. During a search of Hob by’s person, a small baggie of marijuana was recovered, according to the police re port. Also found in the vehi cle was a half-smoked mari juana cigarette and a metal tube that had been con verted into a smoking pipe. The pipe contained drug residue, which classies it as paraphernalia. Hobby was lodged in the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await rst appearance. Hobby was charged with possession of a rearm by convicted felon, possession of marijuana less than 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. JCSO makes drug arrest during trafc stop By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com CHI I PLE E Y — When Chipley faces Hawthorne in today’s Class 1A girls basketball state seminals, the Ti gers are likely to see a player in Kimesha Mann they are somewhat familiar with. The sophomore not only leads the Hornets, 20-3, in scoring at 14.4 points per game, her overall game is very impressive. She also leads her team with an average of 7.1 assists and 5.4 steals, and she is third on the squad in rebounding with 5.0. It’s just that Chipley, 24-5, has a similar version in junior Amanda Pas chal, and the Tigers are quite happy with what they have by comparison. “They’re similar, she produces in different areas,” Chipley rst-year varsity head coach Kimberly Tuel said of Mann, possibly a younger model of Paschal. “That’s exactly what it looks like.” Chipley and Hawthorne tip off at 12:30 p.m. CST. That seminal is preceded by Paxton vs. Chieand, the two winners meeting 11:05 a.m. Thursday for the championship. Paschal is by no means an equiva lent to Chris Walker of Holmes Coun ty, who nearly single-handedly led the Blue Devils to the 1A boys crown last year and currently plays at the University of Florida. But her contributions to the score sheet indeed verge on incred ible. She leads the Tigers in scoring (20.6), rebounding (7.3), assists (5.7) and steals (5.0). And Tuel is more than comfort able with her supporting cast. “Amanda is a special player, but we have a lot that rise up to it,” Tuel said. “We have quite a few that produce.” Among them are Karlisha Works, Brittany Lee, Parisha Massaline and Essence Williams, who all average between 6-8 points. Lee, Williams and Works scored in double gures in the region championship victory against Holmes County. Williams is the second-leading rebounder (5.0). Paschal is the lone Chipley player who saw court time when the Tigers lost to South Walton in last year’s championship game, Tuel did ac knowledge that a number of Tigers made the trip, however, and aren’t going in blind. They know what the experience of traveling to Lakeland, the Tigers leaving at 5 a.m. on Tues day, and competing at the state level is all about. That process also could provide an advantage against Hawthorne, making its inaugural trip to the Fi nal Four, and with a roster that not only doesn’t feature one senior, has only three juniors. The remainder are sophomores, freshmen, and a seventhand eighth-grader. “We know they’re young, but oth erwise we don’t really know much about them,” Tuel said. She did sound condent that her ballclub can adjust to just about any style and strategy that it faces today. “We do whatever works,” Tuel said. “Zone, fullcourt, if they want to go halfcourt we can play man-toman halfcourt. We don’t just stick to one thing. “We make sure that our schedule has bigger schools. We played Ala bama schools in a tournament. I put the bar very high.” In addition to Mann, Hawthorne boasts sophomore Breanna Fomby with a 9.6 scoring average and junior Brook Burns at 9.1. Burns leads in rebounding at 6.9 with sophomore Keinetra Hills contributing 6.6 re bounds and 6.5 points. High speed cited in boating deaths By TOM McLAUGHLIN 315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn tmclaughlin@nwfdailynews.comNI NI C E E V I I LLE E — Former Bay High School basketball coach Robert Williams was an experienced driver “es pecially knowledgeable in boating at night,” and yet he likely was operating the vessel that ran into a MidBay Bridge piling, killing him and two others. “Excessive speed” and “operator inattention” are blamed in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s nal report on the accident that killed Williams and two young women riding with him in his 2014 336 Cobalt boat early Dec. 6. “The paint transfer on the bridge shows that the boat may have almost hit the piling head on. It is pos sible the operator may have made an evasive maneuver at the last moment,” the re port states. Bruising Williams sus tained appeared to indicate he was driving the boat when it hit the piling, the report states. It said visibil ity at the time should have been 6 to 9 miles. “The damage of the boat indicates the vessel was traveling at a high rate of speed, but that speed is not known,” the investigative report states. Efforts to determine the boat’s exact speed when it hit the bridge were unsuc cessful, FWC investigators said. Williams, 47, died in the accident along with Taylor Evanoff, 18, and Jamilia Beltz, 21. All three were in toxicated at the time of the wreck, the report states. Tigers ready for girls basketball Final Four

Amanda Paschal scored 24 points and received considerable help from her teammates as the Tigers clinched a second consecutive trip to the state tournament with a 72-62 victory Friday over host Holmes County in the Region 3-1A nals. Chipley (24-5) will face Hawthorne — a 51-50 winner over Hamilton County — in the state semi nals at The Lakeland Center today. The state championship is Thursday. “It was a great experience,” Paschal said of last year’s trip to state, which ended with a loss to South Walton in the championship game. “Last year we had a lot of seniors, and everybody wanted to win. ... We have to play harder, play with heart.” Holmes County (20-8) outlasted Chipley for the District 3-1A regularseason title and then defeated the Tigers by a point to win the district tournament. Chipley was the superior team in this matchup, but much like it was when the same teams met in the regional nals a year ago. “We’re trying to build a family, basically,” Chipley’s Essence Williams said. Jessica Belser’s lay-in pulled Holmes County even at 40-40 with four minutes left in the third quarter, but a layup by Parisha Massaline sparked a 9-0 run in a 62-second span that gave the Tigers a 49-40 advantage. Chipley carried a 54-48 lead into the fourth quarter, and the Tigers scored eight of the rst 10 points to pull away. The Blue Devils got no closer than seven points thereafter. Holmes County was desperate to limit Paschal, double-teaming the Chipley standout every time she crossed halfcourt with the ball. That opened up scoring opportunities around the basket, however, and the Tigers pounded the ball inside to great effect. “Everybody did great,” Paschal said. “Everybody stepped up tonight.” Kimberly Tuel has been with the Chipley program for three years, she said, but this is her rst season as head coach. “We put the bar up high,” Tuel said, her voice hoarse from yelling for four quarters in a loud gymnasium. “It took hard work to get here.” Brittany Lee contributed 16 points for Chipley, and Williams and Karlisha Works chipped in 12 points apiece. Belser led Holmes County with 10 points, and Lenibel Concepcion added nine. CHIPLEY (72) Paschal 24, Lee 16, Works 12, Williams 12, Thomas 1, Massaline 7.

Evelyn Akhator led Chipola with 18 points, 15 rebounds and four steals. Khadijah Ellison had 11 points with ve assists. The Lady Indians are headed to the FCSAA State Tournament, March 5-8 in Ocala. The men’s team held on for an 8382 overtime win over arch-rival Gulf Coast. Chipola had a 19-point lead in the rst half, but Gulf Coast came back to pull ahead in the second half and push the game into overtime. Jamaar McKay’s layup gave Chipola an 80-76 lead with 18 seconds left in OT, but Gulf Coast made a free throw to cut the lead to thee. With 13 seconds left, Sam Cassell Jr. broke free against the full-court press and was fouled while scoring on a layup. His threepoint play gave the Indians an 83-79 lead with eight seconds left. Chipola (6-4) is tied with Pensacola (6-4) for second place in the league, a half-game behind Northwest (6-3). The top two teams earn a berth to the FCSAA State Tournament in Ocala beginning March 5. The Indians lost to Pensacola 68-64 on Feb. 8. Carlos Morris poured in 27 points and pulled down seven rebounds for the Indians. The loss at Pensacola was the second for the week after falling to Northwest 90-83 on Feb. 5.

By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com Two of the early boys selections for the Halifax All-Star Classic are still playing basketball. All four will take the court on April 5 in the quest to defeat the West. Malone’s Chai Baker, Vernon’s Alex Brown, Mosley’s Nat Dixon and Rutherford’s Khaliel Spearman have been chosen to represent the East in the 10th annual event to be played at the Billy Harrison Field House on the campus of Gulf Coast State College. Baker and Spearman prepped for respective regional basketball games. Brown’s season ended in the district round and Dixon’s before then to hit the football recruiting trail. The East boys will be coached by Marianna’s Travis Blanton and Vernon’s Thomas Register, both of whom are making return appearances in the game. The East teams are chosen by the sports department of The News Herald from an eight-county coverage area. They oppose roster from the West is comprised from the three-county coverage area of the Northwest Florida Daily News stationed in Fort Walton Beach. Baker and Dixon have cemented college destinations, while Brown and Spearman test their options. Baker signed with Oregon State and Dixon is moving on with a football scholarship at Boston College. The duo continues a line of Division I talent playing in the Halifax Classic, dating back to Graceville’s Rashaad Singleton in the inaugural event in 2005. Baker, a 6-foot-3 guard, and Malone hosted Cottondale in the Region 1-1A semi nal on Tuesday. The Tigers were in search of a third consecutive regionalnal berth with the previous two ending in defeat. Baker led them into the contest with 22.7 points and 9.6 rebounds per game and will look to join his brother, Ty, in being a Halifax Classic winner, as the elder sibling was part of last year’s game. Spearman at 6-2 is Rutherford’s leading scorer and has the Rams on the cusp of a second regional nal in three seasons. Rutherford hosted Tallahassee Rickards on Tuesday for the right to advance. The 6-3 Brown’s campaign ended with a loss to Cottondale in the District 2-1A semi nal. His 33 ppg helped Register guide the Yellow Jackets to a winning record in his rst season at the helm after Vernon amassed 16 losses in 2012-13. Dixon also is capable of scoring at a similar clip with more than 30 ppg as a junior. His production dipped some this season, but he’s still one of the area’s best shooters and he’s not afraid to heave the ball at the basket. The 6-4 guard’s leaping ability also gives the East some length inside. Complete 12-player rosters for the East and West will be released in early-March. East girls coaches will be selected and announced in the coming weeks and the rst round of East girls player selections also are on the horizon. Player nominations are being accepted. Area coaches in the East coverage area are asked to send player name, position, height, statistics and other pertinent information to Brad Milner at The News Herald via e-mail at bmilner@pcnh. com or by calling (850) 747-5065. Halifax Media Group and its two Florida daily newspapers, The News Herald and the Daily News, again are lead sponsors along with GCSC. Additional sponsorship is provided by the Panama City Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The 82-person crew was released from storm duty late Sunday afternoon and returned to Northwest Florida late Sunday night. “They all worked safely and gave hope to customers who had lost power,” said Jeff Rogers, Gulf Power Corporate Communications manager. “Our crews continue to hone their skills working winter storms this year, and we were glad to help Georgia Power’s customers get their power back on.” The crews left Feb. 10, donned snow chains, and worked in Jonesboro, Ga., just south of Atlanta most of the week. Over the weekend, they went east to Waynesboro, Ga., to help complete restoration. Georgia Power restored power to more than 700,000 customers. It was the third time this winter Gulf Power crews were called on to restore power. In December, a team went to the Dallas area. And in late January, Gulf Power had to deal with its own winter storm. “When the power’s out, there’s no better sight on your street than a bucket truck rolling up,” Rogers said. “The experience gained from being deployed to assist in these storms helps our crews be the best they can be right here at home.” Gulf Power Company is an investor-owned electric utility with all of its common stock owned by Atlanta-based Southern Company. Gulf Power serves more than 436,000 customers in eight counties throughout Northwest Florida. The company’s mission is to safely provide exceptional customer value by delivering reliable, affordable and environmentally responsible electricity while strengthening our communities.

Washington County News z Holmes County Times-Advertiser B PAGE 1 Section E XTRA Trivia Fun Wilson Casey WC@Trivia Guy.com By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Eastern Shipbuilding Group is one of three nalists vying for a $10.5 billion U.S. Coast Guard contract that could bring thousands of new jobs to Bay County. The 20-year contract is for the development of 25 nextgeneration offshore patrol cutters for the Coast Guard. “This is a huge deal, not just for Eastern Shipbuilding, but for Bay County and Northwest Florida,” said company President and CEO Brian D’Isernia. “That’s tremendous for jobs, for long-term jobs, so naturally we’re excited.” Eastern is one of eight shipyards that submitted proposals for the project and will be competing with nalists in Lockport, La., and Bath, Maine, for the contract. As a nalist, Eastern was awarded about $22 million to design a prototype for the vessel, which must be submitted to the Coast Guard in the next year and a half. “Each shipyard proposed a different vessel, and this award of $22 million will be put toward us completing a detailed design and submitting a nal price,” D’Isernia said. “The nal award to the ultimate winner will be based on a combination of design of the vessel and cost.” D’Isernia said the nalists were chosen based on a conceptual design and proposal submitted to the Coast Guard, which represented more than three years of work. If awarded the project, D’Isernia said it would add between 750 and 800 employees to Eastern’s team of 1,500 and would indirectly create many jobs for the area. “With the multiplying effect in the area, that’s easily 2,000 to 2,500 jobs,” said D’Isernia, who noted the contract is the largest the company has ever bid on. If Eastern were awarded the contract, D’Isernia said it also could lead to facility expansion at one or both of the Panama City shipyards, depending on the company’s other workload. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said in a press release Wednesday that he was con dent in Eastern’s capabilities in developing the vessels. “I think Eastern makes a lot of sense given its facilities, capabilities of its workforce and solid track record in this industry,” said Nelson, a senior member of the Senate’s Armed Services Committee and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over the Coast Guard. U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, said the contract would bring a much needed boost to the region’s economy. “Should Eastern Shipbuilding win this contract, it will provide a tremendous boost to Northwest Florida’s economy and bring hundreds of well-paying, highlyskilled construction jobs to our community,” Southerland said. When asked if he had any concerns about nding enough skilled workers if Eastern wins the project, D’Isernia said he was con dent in the company’s capabilities. “We’ve managed, through hiring and training, to gainfully employ 1,500 skilled people, and we think we could cover this project as we’ve done in the past,” D’Isernia said. “We’re going to work like heck for a year and a half, and hope to win (the project).” $10.5 billion deal?

Faith EVENTS Learning the great art of kneeology George Mueller had just nished spending some quality time with a young missionary headed for China. He was enthralled by the vision this young man had to reach an entire country for Christ. J. Hudson Taylor was going to China without any sponsorship of any kind, except God. Mueller found in Taylor a kindred spirit and his heart was stirred. If anyone understood the life of trusting God, it was George Mueller. After Taylor left, Mueller felt a burden upon his heart for this young missionary that he could not shake. Never once did Taylor ask Mueller for money or even talk about where the money would come from, but spoke excitedly about what God was going to do without any regard of who was going to pay the bill. Monies were needed to support the vision Taylor had for reaching the country of China. Without saying anything to anybody, Mueller begin praying and trusting God for £100,000 for the mission in China. He set a day when the monies needed to be in and told absolutely no one, On the appointed day, monies began coming in from everywhere. Even Mueller was a little shocked at the overwhelming response to his prayer. People really did not know what was behind all of this giving but were impressed by God to give. Mueller understood what was behind it. God was behind it. Before that day ended over £100,000, the amount Mueller was trusting God for, had come in. How do you explain that? Today’s giving is predicated upon an advertising campaign. Thousands of dollars are spent hiring rms specializing in fundraising campaigns. Advertisements are created to lure people into giving. Celebrities are hired to plead the cause. Strategies are used to convince people that if they give they will get something back in return. This all in a ploy to raise money, supposedly to do kingdom work. Years ago, I ran across something Dr. Moody Stuart set down as rules, which guided his own prayer life. I put them in the front of my Bible constantly to remind me of these things. 1. Pray until you pray. 2. Pray until you are conscious of being heard. 3. Pray until you receive an answer. These three things will go a long way in turning our prayer life into a dynamic encounter with God that actually accomplishes great things for God. Kingdom work demands the employment of kingdom principles. EVERYBODY PRAYS It is safe to say that everybody prays, even those who say they do not believe in prayer. All that needs to happen is some incident or an accident and people instinctively turned to prayer. Those who do not believe in prayer succumb to prayer in times of trouble. Remember 9/11 Everybody prays but few have a proper foundation upon which to build their prayer ministry. Prayer is not some magical formula that applies to both saved and unsaved alike. Some believe if you have the right formula, the right ritual or the right words that God has to answer that prayer. It does not matter if your life is contrary to the nature of God. It does not matter, or so they think, if you are not walking with God day by day. God has to answer your prayer. All you have to do is just say the magical formula “in Jesus’ name” in your prayer is on its way. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no way anybody can back God into a corner and get Him to do something contrary to His will. THE PRIVILEGE OF PRAYER Prayer is the privilege of the believer. No greater honor could be laid upon the heart of the Christian. The foundation of a proper prayer life is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ. Apart from Him, we have no access to God the Father. The tragedy of this whole situation is that all of the prayers of the unsaved are baseless and get no higher than the ceiling. In order to penetrate the heavens and ascend to the Throne of God we must have an advocate, a mediator, which is none other than Jesus Christ. “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). Only through Christ will my prayers get through to God, the Father. Imagine spending your whole life praying to a God that does not exist. Imagine, after a life of hardship and toil you nd out you really were not praying at all but rather mumbling words and phrases that had no signi cance to it at all. The proper foundation for prayer is Jesus Christ. Even those with a proper foundation often misuse prayer. The apostle James pointed this out in his epistle, “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.” (James 4:3). This is praying contrary to God’s will. How much time is wasted on nonessentials and non-kingdom stuff? Relatively few have accepted the necessary discipline for this kind of work. Some have a reputation of being a prayer warrior, which is really an oxymoron. A prayer warrior’s work is covert spiritual work of which most people do not know is going on. These great Saints have no reputation but have found the “secret place” of spiritual potency and are being employed by the Holy Spirit to engage the enemy in spiritual warfare. No glamour… No celebrity status… No spotlight. Just wrestling with the powers of darkness. This is praying down the enemy and all his forces around him. These great saints that have populated each generation of Christendom have attended the school of prayer and learned the great art of kneeology. DR. JAMES L. SNYDER Out to Pastor

Mills Ann Sheppard Gordy (Grann), loving wife, mother, sister and grandmother, departed this earth on Feb. 13, 2014, at Westminster Oaks, in Tallahassee. Ann was born in Chipley, on Sept. 4, 1928, to Oscar Lee and Ethel Sheppard. Ann attended Washington County schools and was a 1946 graduate of Chipley High School and a 1950 graduate of the Florida State College for Women/ Florida State University (B.S. in Home Economics and M.S. in Library Science). After marrying the love of her life, Paul, she taught in the Washington County School System for 33 years. Her rst years were spent teaching Home Economics at Chipley High School before she transitioned to Kate M. Smith Elementary School where she taught the Fifth Grande and Elementary School Music. Ann ended her work career as the Media Specialist which was a natural t given her love of reading-as a fth grade teacher, she instilled the love of reading to her students by reading to them each day after their lunch break. As betting home economics major, Ann was an outstanding cook. She took great joy in keeping her friends and family well fed, particularly when family returned home for visits. Ann especially enjoyed cooking for her grandson, Casey, and she loved every minute she spent with her only grandchild. Ann was an extremely talented musician who played both the piano and organ, and her love of music was rst reected in her dedicated service as the accompanist for the Chipley High School Chorus during her high school career. Additionally, after singing in the choir as a youngster, Ann served as the organist for the First United Methodist Church of Chipley during her entire high school career. She later resumed her organist activities from 1960 to 1986, and also sang in the choir (1987-2007). Throughout her life, Ann served on multiple church committees and particularly loved her service to the United Methodist Women. Ann served as President of the UMW for several years and also served as a District Representative for the Pensacola West Florida District. In addition to being an amazingly talented person, Ann’s love and devotion to her family was second only to her love of God. Ann served as President of the Junior Women’s Club in 1951 and 1952 and was an active member of the Spanish Trail Playhouse. As a member of the STP, she and her family were cast members in the musical productions of Carousel and Showboat. Ann was also an exceptionally talented seamstress who spent countless hours exercising her creativity by making clothing, accessories and anything else that was needed. During her retirement years, Ann spent hours making items such as tote bags, aprons and draperies, and she enjoyed taking sewing classes with her friends at the Washington County Area Vocational Technical School. Her creations were always made to serve as gifts for friends and/or to be sold in conjunction with a church bazaar. Ann and Paul loved to travel and upon their retirement, they took advantage of many opportunities to travel abroad as well as in the United States. Ann was an exceptionally talented vacation planner long before the Internet made it easy and she was responsible for planning all of their trips from the rst out of the country family vacation to Mexico in 1965, to Europe, Hawaii and most of the U.S. national parks. Ann experienced a major stroke in 2007 which changed everybody’s world but especially Paul’s. However, despite all of the difculties and lifestyle changes, Paul’s constant devotion to his Ann was an inspiration to all and there was no doubt that he adored “the prettiest girl in the world.” She was predeceased by her parents, O.L. and Ethel Sheppard, and her nephew Greg Booth (Gayla). Ann is survived by her husband of 65 years, Paul Gordy; her daughter, Paula Gordy Cook (Skip); her son, Steve Gordy (Ruth); her grandson, Casey Cook (ance Shaunna Boggs); his sister, Sarah Sheppard Booth (Ormond); her sisterin-law, Molly Gordy, and her niece, Elizabeth Coley (Chuck).

THE CAMP AIGN FOR OUR COM MUN IT Y ’S UNIVE RSIT Y E ndo wment for T omorr o w ’ s J obs SUP POR T OU R C OM MU NIT Y ’ S UNI VER SIT Y Special to Extra Over the past 20 years, Good will Manasota has not only cre ated thousands of jobs in its local region, but it has also helped in crease revenues by the millions at other Goodwill’s around the globe. Goodwill Manasota, based in Sarasota, Fla., has developed an award winning business mod el that has been replicated all over the world. The powerhouse non-prot organization will take it one step further in 2014, when it opens a 29,000-square-foot international training center to provide its Mission Development Services program. Formalized in 2001, the MDS program teaches other Goodwill organizations how to rene and expand their enter prises, creating jobs and mission opportunities through improved business operations. “We identify and partner with Goodwill’s around the country that are challenged or have ter ritories that are being under served, and teach them how to streamline their operations,” said Bob Rosinsky, president and CEO of Goodwill Manasota. “We train them on acquiring and re taining donors, managing staff and employees, and we provide them with expertise on manag ing real estate,” he said. At a Goodwill in Northern Ari zona, headquartered in Flagstaff, that assistance made a multi-mil lion dollar difference between 2003-2012, and saved that Goodwill from disaster. “The organization was barely able to keep its doors open, drifting towards bankrupt cy,” recalls David Hirsch, CEO of the once struggling Goodwill In dustries of Northern Arizona. “It didn’t have the donations to jus tify its stores, and it wasn’t prop erly handling the donations it did receive. It was losing community support and board members as a result, slowly sinking into oblivi on,” Hirsch said. This crisis led concerned board members to reach out to the highly successful Goodwill Manasota for advice. Goodwill Industries of North ern Arizona was then operating six retail centers without a single dedicated donation center. Its an nual revenue was just under $1.6 million. It was losing over $30,000 each month. Goodwill Manasota worked with the Flagstaff team to develop a strategic plan and to provide operational guidance. “When the Goodwill Mana sota team arrived, one of the rst things they did was recommend ed closing one store. They got the board to see that they really needed to make tough decisions if we were to survive. They also recruited and retained me as the new CEO,” said Hirsch. For several months, the MDS team, led by current Goodwill Manasota CEO Bob Rosinsky, provided training to staff and management on how to efcient ly move donations from the back room to the sales oor. Sales soon began to increase by double dig its. “As donor service improved, so did donations,” said Hirsch. Fast-forward ten years, and Goodwill Industries of Northern Arizona currently operates six re tail stores, nine donation centers and ve Job Connection centers. Annual revenues exceeded $5 million in 2012. It opened a 13,000square-foot store in Bullhead City in 2008, three hours away from Flagstaff. A new headquar ters and Goodwill Good Neighbor Center was opened in 2012. The Goodwill of Northern Arizona plans on opening another Good Neighbor Center in Lake Havasu in 2014, and also plans to open four more donation centers. “The growth and development activities continue to be a ma jor part of our relationship with Goodwill Manasota today,” ex plains Hirsch. Goodwill Manasota has had similar success stories in 11 ter ritories across the United States including: Lafayette, La.; Tucson, Ariz.; Memphis, Tenn.; Reno, Nevada; Austin, Texas; Flag staff, Ariz.; Houston, Texas; Tal lahassee, Fla.; Mobile, Ala.; and Washington, D.C. Internationally, Goodwill Manasota has assisted several countries with techni cal assistance and it maintains partnerships in Alberta, Niagara, London, Montreal, Toronto and Sarnia, Canada. Goodwill Manasota also part ners with others to develop part or all of a territory, using its own capital for development. The MDS program currently works in territories in Marinette, Wis. and Northern Mississippi for this pur pose. It assists local staff to build out the territory and works with that staff to oversee the day-today operations. “The goal of this strategy is to develop the territo ry and eventually turn a mature operation back to the partner Goodwill. The MDS partnerships create business-to-business re lationships that ultimately ben et both organizations,” said Bob Rosinsky. When Goodwill Manasota as sumed control of the Northern Mississippi territory in 2008, it had annual revenues of approxi mately $1.6 million, employed 30 people and was serving about 78,000 donors from its two re tail locations. Annual revenues exceeded $12.7 million in 2012, 250 people were employed and 225,000 donors were assisted from 17 retail stores. The international training center in Bradenton, Florida is expected to open in the summer of 2014. It will be part of a new $13million, 65,000-square-foot cor porate campus. The expansion effort will create more than 30 local jobs in a 36,000-square-foot retail operation. The new site will consolidate staff to enhance the productivity required to provide professional services, employ ment counseling and training for additional students. Goodwill Manasota currently operates 33 donation centers and 18 retail stores in Florida’s Sara sota, Manatee, DeSoto and Hard ee Counties. It employs over 750 people, nearly 100 of which are severely disabled. This year, it helped place more than 500 peo ple into jobs and helped to pro vide more $30 million in wages.
