Chief Pierce told commissioners in their Monday workshop that hes concerned about a map within the E-911 system that doesnt recognize Poplar Head as a substation of the Five Points VFD. The chief expressed concern that if the substation isnt recognized, it could result in the stations closure and high insurance premiums for area residents. That map is outdated, however, and superseded by a newer map, which is also in E-911s dispatch system, explains Major Brown. Weve been dispatching calls appropriately in that area, said Brown. We dont have Poplar Head listed separately because its a substation of Five Points. Ultimately, commissioners and whoever is hired as Fire Department Coordinator as planned in recent board action, will be responsible for map changes.

Former analysts involvement prompts new trial CHIPLEY In fallout from the arrest earlier this year of a former Florida Department of Law Enforcement chemist, an appeals court Friday ordered a new trial for a man convicted of traf cking in hydrocodone. A three-judge panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal reversed the conviction and sentence of Gary Kenyon in a Washington County case. The two-page ruling said a witness in the case was an FDLE analyst who testi ed about the nature and quantity of the drugs involved. After Kenyon was convicted, he led an appeal based on newly discovered evidence that the FDLE analyst had been arrested and faced multiple charges, including grand theft of a controlled substance, traf cking in illegal substances and tampering or fabricating physical evidence, according to Fridays ruling. The appeals court did not identify the analyst, but FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger con rmed that Kenyons case was processed by Joseph Graves, whose arrest earlier this year touched off a wideranging review of cases he had handled.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 24, 2014 By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn jhenderson@pcnh.co m FOUNTAIN State fund ing has been secured in this coming years budget to re store two springs that feed water bodies of popular lo cal recreation areas. The Econna Creek and Holmes Creek Springs Pro tection projects were on a statewide list of springs restoration projects recent ly approved by Legislative Budget Commission. The commission approved the Florida Department of En vironmental Protections (DEP) list of proposed $69 million in springs restora tion projects. The Northwest Florida Water Management Dis trict will receive more than $6.8 million to implement eight projects designed to also improve conditions in Wakulla Springs and Jack son Blue Spring. This funding will play a crucial role in the districts efforts to protect water supply and preserve the natural resources of our areas important spring ecosystems, Northwest Florida Water Management District Executive Director Jon Steverson said in a pre pared statement. Including the $6.8 mil lion proposed by this plan, the districts tentative s cal year 2014-2015 budget includes more than $8.2 million for springs restora tion and protection. This is in addition to the more than $3.3 million invested in springs protection by the district during the current scal year. Combined with local con tributions, the $69 million is expected to go to work on springs throughout Central and North Florida that have faced years of decline due to drought, development and excessive groundwa ter pumping.Two local ones made the list. Devils Hole Spring, on Econna Creek, discharg es about 21 million gallons per day. The spring is a popular public recreation area that is experiencing signicant erosion and de stabilization, said Lauren Engel, a spokeswoman for NWFWMD. The Devils Hole Spring Restoration project, which will cost $125,000, will sta bilize, restore and protect stream banks at the spring, which will improve water quality, she said. She said it also will restore historical shoreline impacted by ero sion and prevent destruc tion of habitat from erosion and recreational use on Econna Creek. The project also involves installing boardwalks and access points to prevent fu ture water quality and habi tat impacts, Engel said. Its a very popular pad dling (area), she said. People like to swim and sh and camp along the shore. They love these springs. Directly south of Devils Hole Spring is Seashell, a campsite with a picnic ta ble. People walking in this area have trampled over plants and knocked sedi ments into the water, Engel said. Were doing restoration work to restore the stream bank from erosion and ulti mately, improve water qual ity, she said. The Holmes Creek Springs Complex Restora tion project, which will cost $175,000, will stabilize the stream bank and provide stormwater treatment and adequate boat launching access at Cotton Landing, Engel said. Its another popular campsite and shing area, a place to launch canoes and kayaks, she said. We want to again stabilize the shore line plant native plants. She said the project will involve laying down geo technical bags, which helps prevent the shoreline from crumbling sediments into the water. By using geotechni cal bags they allow native plants to grow there instead of putting up ugly concrete walls. Engel said plans for both projects are being nalized, and there is no denitive start or nish date. Econna Creek would not be shut down for the work, but perhaps a seg ment of it would be tempo rarily closed. There will still be plenty of other beautiful places to enjoy paddling, she said.

Local Washington County News | A3 Wednesday, September 24, 2014 By JENNIFER HARWOOD 747-5073 | @PCNHJennHarwood jharwood@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH The family of a 27-year-old man who was found dead in a swimming pool earlier this week laid him to rest Friday. Ryan Cook, who worked for Cox Pools, and a co-work er were doing repairs at a home on North Lagoon Drive on Monday morning. While repairing the pools lights, his co-worker discovered Cook at the bottom of the pool, ac cording to law enforcement reports. The co-worker, who has not been named, pulled the unresponsive man from the water and told the hom eowner to call 911. Bay County sheriffs deputies tried to revive Cook until Bay County Fire and EMS arrived to taken him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Cox Pools released a statement on Cooks death Thursday. We at Cox Pools are grieved by the loss of Ryan Cook. Our hearts and prayers go out to Ryans family and our family here at Cox Pools, owner Richard Cox said. Authorities suspect Cook was electrocuted because of exposed wires found in the pool, although the cause of death still is unclear. The cause of death has not been determined at this time, Andrew Winkler, fo rensic investigator with the 14th Circuit Medical Exam iners Ofce, said Thursday. Its still pending further investigation. The Sheriffs Ofce still is conducting an investiga tion but did rule out foul play Monday. At this time no determi nation has been made as to the cause of Ryans passing, but we are working closely with OSHA, law enforce ment and all involved to de termine a conclusion, Cox said. Cook was the stepson of Vernon Mayor Michelle Cook. He leaves behind two young children, Gracie and Matthew Cook. We will be forthcom ing with any new informa tion, Cox said. Again, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Cook family as they need all the support they can get, not only from us but from the entire community as a whole. Cooks funeral was at Abigail Freewill Baptist Church in Vernon, followed by interment at New Hope Cemetery.

OPINION www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, September 24, 2014 A Page 4 Section Unknown angel was watching over me I usually write about events and people in Holmes and Washington counties, but I chose this week to share a story about a man from Georgia who was living testimony that we often are blessed by acts of kindness without even knowing it. There are certain people who nd a way into our hearts and never nd their way out. Losing those close to us is a pain that knows no equal. I felt an unusual loss while serving as editor of The Alma Times in Alma, Ga., however, with the passing of a man I barely knew. Joe Jordan was known for being a long-time xture at local business Davis Floor Covering, both as an employee and a relative of the Davis family. Gene Davis is a long-time Chipley fan and was a close friend of the late Representative Sam Mitchell. Since the store was just across the street from The Alma Times, Davis and I would frequently chew the fat in that idle way for which we Southerners are known. Joe would frequently toss in a comment, either to wholeheartedly agree, or good-naturedly disagree, from his iconic armchair situated near the front counter. No matter what his opinion about local politics or other issues, Joe never forgot to give a friendly smile or word of encouragement. I once wrote a column about todays music not holding a candle to that of my parents day and mentioned that my favorite song is Im So Lonesome I Could Cry by Hank Williams Sr. The day after that issue hit the newsstand, Joe called the of ce and asked me to step over to the ooring shop. Once there, he presented a CD he recorded that included a cover of that beloved tune. This is for you, he said. Although touched by his thoughtfulness, I didnt realize at the time exactly how much thought Joe gave others. When Davis called to give me the sad news of Joes passing, he revealed something I had no way of knowing before. Let me tell you something, Davis said. Joe sure did worry about you girls. He didnt like you working late or coming in too early because he said theres just so much meaness in the world. Davis also went on to solve something that had been a bit of a mystery. I had noticed over the years that Joe kept odd hours at the store, often leaving after I did, which can sometimes be rather late, depending on what is breaking around the county news-wise. He would always stay until you left, Carol Lee, Davis said. He wanted to be sure your truck would crank and that you werent out there alone. Davis words lled my eyes with tears and my heart with sadness and bittersweet regret that I hadnt known sooner about my quiet guardian angel, that I hadnt taken the time to get to know him better. I set out to learn more about Joe than what was already known that he loved music, the Braves and his community, and that he kept a small gold cross in his pocket at all times. Genes son, Tommy, spoke at Joes funeral and shed some light on the man their family knew. One of the things about Joe that struck people was that he had an encyclopedic knowledge of sports history, as well as country music history. It would have surprised no one who knew him to hear Joe rattle off the 1952 batting average of Mickey Mantle or some such obscure fact. Part of Joe lived in another era, and I can imagine him watching, in a hermits dream, when Patsy Cline and DeMaggio stroll by, hand in hand, and in the background Ernest Tubb singing Waltz Across Texas With You. Joe was a peaceful man, but I think you could have made him ght if you spoke ill of Mickey Mantle, Elvis Presley, Gene Davis or the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Joe was a quiet man and shy to talk about his personal beliefs. Perhaps the items he kept in his pocket give hints of his faith. They included a small gold cross with the words grace and faith imprinted thereon. In his wallet was found a small card printed with a phrase God has due season for me. His faith certainly affected mine, even after he was gone, and if I have taken one lesson from that impact, its to be mindful of unknown angels.

I know growing up, for the city of Bonifay, the rodeo was like a national holiday. Days, sometimes weeks, before the rodeo, schools and businesses would be gearing up for the upcoming festivities. I remember how it was like Christmas, how it seemed like the whole city was humming. It was all about bulls, boots and bling, which ironically is the theme of this years rodeo as organizers celebrate its 70th anniversary. My grandmother tried to enter me into the Rodeo Pageant, but I was so awkward on stage and afterward they found me in a tree, hanging upside down. That was the last time I was ever entered into a pageant but I still loved the shiny cowboy hats sold by vendors and it was fun wearing the boots. I liked dressing up like a cowgirl and playing with lassos. Even with all the games and activities I never realized how important the rodeo actually was to the city; how important it still is. In preparing for this years 70th anniversary, I have heard from even more people than usual about the importance of the rodeo to not only their families but the community. I learned how the rodeo brought jobs and unity to everyone. It brought a quality of life that became the heartbeat of this small town, a heartbeat that could be heard throughout the nation. It is that heartbeat that brought life to this city and it is the people who make live, thrive and grow. There are steps in place to make the rodeo even bigger, better and more of a branding for Bonifay. However, making it better isnt exactly accurate, it is more like a restoration to the way it was when it was big. There will be a new sound system, a Jumbotron video screen to watch instant replays and popular acts are returning and thats just the new features not including the special things theyre doing just for the 70th anniversary. For the anniversary theres going to be special T-shirts, souvenir cups, belt buckles and so much more. The rodeo even has a new mascot and a contest for the local children to name him. It feels so refreshing to see some of that old spirit come back into this city and the people. Even just a glimpse of that old excitement is so very refreshing. It seems we have far too much apathy saturating the culture around us. The darkest days come when the light of hope no longer shines. Even if it is just a glimmer for a few days out of the year it is enough to change the atmosphere. I think what I really enjoy is the idea that something that me and my family have enjoyed for so many years is growing. I really love sharing what I love with others, it is almost addictive. Something about seeing someone else enjoy what youve enjoyed for so long has a sort of grati cation with it. I would love to see the city explode with images of rodeo from street to street. I would love to see the windows painted again, signs and displays up again and everywhere you go is reminders that rodeo is coming. I remember seeing people stop to take pictures with going through downtown Bonifay. It really was something to look at. I know a lot of it has to do with the economy and not being able to afford to decorate or take the time to decorate. It is almost like going through some areas on Christmas and barely able to see that it is a holiday, let alone Christmas. I think were exceptionally blessed that the city still goes so far to decorate for Christmas when Christmas itself seems to be slowly phased out everywhere. Maybe that is what is at the heart of the matter. Maybe I just feel blessed to live in an area where so much of what I loved about my childhood is still around. More importantly the values and tradition is still around. As I grow older I think of a potential family in the future and I want my children to have those same opportunities and same experiences as I did. Its more than festivals; its about community; a sense of unity and togetherness. Im excited to see what they come up with this year and being a sucker for souvenirs, Ill probably be taking home quite a few since they will be offered everywhere. Thank you for sitting with me and if I dont see you next week, maybe Ill see you at the rodeo. CECILIA SPEARS Cecilias Sit Down Touchdowns cant erase bad behavior O nce again, Florida States Heisman Trophy-winning and national champion quarterback, Jameis Winston, has gotten himself in trouble. This time he shouted a vulgar phrase (taken from an Internet meme) about a womans body while his fellow students tried to go about their normal day. The phrase comes from a hoax video with millions of hits on YouTube and, apparently, a growing group of fans on college campuses who enjoy yelling the phrase to break up the monotony of college life. This generations parents thought Beavis and Butthead and South Park were funny so we will refrain from overreacting over a vulgar phrase that was shouted at no one in particular. However, we hope the college students of America move on to something a little less crude with the next meme. Shouting something obscene on FSUs campus would probably result in a stern warning from the coach to any other player. But Winston is not any other player. Hes supposed to be the leader of FSUs team both on and off the field. And while he is brilliant on the field, Winston has failed his team and his fans again and again when he wasnt playing football. In December 2012 Winston was accused of sexual assault by a fellow FSU student. No matter how you perceive the details of that case (no charges were filed), the accusation and circumstances that led to the accusation will hang over Winston for the rest of his days at FSU and likely for the rest of his life. Earlier this year Winton got in hot water when he was charged with stealing crab legs from a Publix in Leon County. Those are the two most famous instances but there have been several other moments of questionable behavior that were allegedly tied to Winston, including shooting out windows with a BB gun and getting thrown out of a Burger King when he asked for a water cup and used it for soda. One could almost believe that a young, famous, incredibly talented football player believes he can do anything he wants and get away with it. We cant imagine where he got that idea. More troubling is that Winston has promised over and over again that he will stay out of trouble. But, because he could not stay out of trouble, Winston will be staying out of the first half of a high-stakes game against Clemson. We dont believe this is an overreaction for someone who has repeatedly promised to shape up, but hasnt. For any athlete, and certainly one of Winstons caliber, there is very little that hits closer to home than playing time and the ability to do what they love most. If his attention is to be gained, one would hope this would do it. As we write this we have no idea how the suspension affected Saturdays contest against Clemson. Whatever the outcome we hope the suspension, finally, convinces Winston that it is time to grow up. Our VIEW CECILIA SPEARS | The Times-Advertiser Grandma thought it would be a good idea to enter me into the Rodeo Pageant when I was younger, but I had other plans. Joe Jordan wasnt just a familiar face around town; he served in the U.S. Air Force Air Rescue Division during the Korean Con ict.

Banish boring with strong lines, a awless t, a beautiful quality fabric and a great colo r, and then have fun making it your own. Theres no need to adopt the designers vision (or the stores) unless it speaks to you. Lose the belt or add one. Unbutton a few buttons and wear it over a tee. Wear it backwards, under a brightly colored trench or with piles of contrasting accessories. Unless you really, really love it: As with every fashion rule, there is always, always an exception. A standout, statement-making dress might be too memorable to be truly versatile, but it is the shortest, most sure-re route to a gorgeous look. A truly special dress, particularly an embellished or otherwise decorative one, simply needs a great pair of heels and a bag to turn it into a complete look. The jewelry, and the wow factor, is built right in. Fit and Flatter Its only gorgeous if its gorgeous on. Fit is everything, and minor adjustments can make a huge difference. The most expensive dress will fail to atter if it is too short, too long, too tight or too loose. If you dont want to factor alterations into the cost of the dress, then leave it at the store. Strike a Balance: After a certain age (19?) wearing every single trend of the season in one garment doesnt say fashion forward. It says fashion victim. If you pick a trendy fabric, like neoprene, choose a classic shape or a simple print to avoid overdoing it. Denim and leather are two huge trends for fall that turn up in tons of dresses, and they are gorgeous when limited to one item. Know Your Body Type And nd a dress shape that atters it. If your body type is proportional, try a tted pencil dress or body conscious style. Need denition at the waist? Look for ruching and draping in that area. And if you want to downplay your curvy hips, play up your upper half with horizontal necklines (like bateau and wide scoop necks) and embellishments at the top of the dress.

Last month, I was hesitant to try Back Porch BBQ at 1316 Beck Ave. in St. Andrews after seeing the building change from MJs BBQ to the short-lived Acme Burgers. But Carol McAdam, whose mother has owned the building for 30 years, has a way of making you feel welcome. We realized we both had been taking notes from barbecue competitors at the Great American Blues Festival & BBQ Challenge on Aug. 16 in Aaron Bessant Park, just for different reasons. I learned some tricks for Mardi Gras, ribs or chicken on a stick with the little kiddies. I was seeing what the guys doing the competition were bringing, said McAdam, who said she has a great Cajun smoked sausage she can serve on a stick, too. Its a good piece of sausage. By the time I walked out of Back Porch on a full stomach, I had a new friend. Making friends is one of McAdams favorite parts of the business. My face hurt so much from smiling and laughing the other night, she admitted. Beginning this week, the restaurant no longer is open for breakfast, just lunch on Tuesdays and lunch and dinner Wednesday through Saturday. Breakfast business was too slow to justify 18-hour days. We will just be concentrating on our meats and sides everyone loves, McAdam said Friday. I caught up with Executive Chef Konrad Jochum for Lobster Fest last week, the first time I had seen him since Boatyard closed in December. But he was still joking around as usual. His recipe instructions for Lobster Pastalaya first were Just let your creative juices flow. But I asked if he could please expand on that for Wednesdays Food section for those of us who are less creative in kitchen. (I then double-checked on the recipe with the kitchen crew.) Jochum said the weekend breakfast at Schooners has been good, especially since people caught on it was a scaled-down version from Boatyards menu. But today he is down at Schooners, 5121 Gulf Drive, serving up his lobster specialties. Jochum admitted he even bought 200 ponchos just in case this weekends weather was anything like last years. Just the Cook regulars braved the elements Sept. 13 with owner Ernie Hall at the St. Andrews Marina for a special viewing of the Cooking Channels Trending Bites, which featured the restaurant, crew and Halls cuisine that focuses on fresh flavors and a few down-home comforts. His Dan-D-Donut Burger uses doughnuts from Dan-D-Donuts & Deli as the buns, but Dan-Ds Mike Pond has some plans of his own for stacking flavors. We are working on a DanD style doughnut cut in half like a biscuit with cinnamon and sugar on it to let it caramelize, then top it with sausage, egg, cheese and bacon and dust it with confectioners sugar, Pond said. Everything is done by hand touched by clean hands; the same way since the place opened in the 1960s; theres more demand than we can produce. Chef Amanda Sorenson at Somethins Cookin is still making pasta, which was a staple at her familys Italian restaurant, but she has updated the technique trading a rolling pin for a pasta machine. My family opened their first restaurant when I was 4 on Route 66 in Joplin (Mo.), she said. They let me cut Parmesan. I would stand on a chair and stir the pasta sauce. Now a grandmother, she recalls rushing to get ready for bed after her bath to look out over the rails to the Italian restaurant. It was called the Cellar, was run out of our basement, she said. We converted our house. Stairs went up to the house and we would sit in our Winnie the Pooh pajamas and look out. Sorenson graduated from Gulf Coasts culinary program in 1994 and has worked in area restaurants from Uncle Ernies to Treasure Ship to Breakers and Angelinas. She taught a new generation of young chefs in the early 2000s, when she ran Bay Highs culinary program.

Libertarian an alternative in Florida governors race JACKSONVILLE BEACH (AP) Beer contain ers arent usually a topic in Florida gubernatorial races, but for Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie the states ban on small brewers lling half-gallon jugs illustrates how regu lations reward campaign contributors and stie competitors. Sipping a pint of Count Shakula chocolate oat meal stout, Wyllie chat ted with a Green Room Brewing customer about how the Republican-led Legislature blocked the legalization of half-gallon growlers or rellable beer jugs when quart and gallon growlers can be lled and sold in limit less amounts at Florida breweries. Behind the de feat was one of the states Budweiser distributors, who is a longtime sup porter of Senate President Don Gaetz and could lose business if craft brewers gain customers. Tallahassee shouldnt be setting up road blocks for small businesses, they should be clearing them out of the way, said Wyl lie, who visited the Jack sonville Beach pub dur ing a month-long tour of Florida craft breweries to promote his campaign. Wyllie, 44, of Palm Har bor, is a longshot, but he is gaining support as vot ers are turned off by their choices in whats become one of the most negative campaigns waged in Flor ida. Republican Gov. Rick Scott still struggles with his approval rating and polls show many voters also dont trust Republi can-turned-Democrat for mer Gov. Charlie Crist. Recent polls show Wyl lie getting about 5 percent of the vote, which would be a Florida record for a statewide Libertarian candidate. Wyllie is the rst Libertarian to run for governor in Florida, but the partys presidential and Senate candidates have never topped a halfpercent. Wyllie has raised about $80,000, a fraction of the $24 million Crist has raised and the $45 million Scott has received. Voters are so frus trated by both parties that I wouldnt be surprised if the third-party candidate did better than they usu ally do, said Matthew Corrigan, a University of North Florida political science professor. If Wyl lie gets 5 to 10 percent, that could have a major impact on our governors race depending on which way voters go. As a Libertarian, Wyl lie believes government should stay out of most personal and business af fairs as long as no one is harmed. He wants to cut state spending, taxes and regulations but he also supports gay marriage, the legalization of mari juana and abortion rights. Its a philosophy that ap peals to some Democrats and some Republicans. Wyllie, who owns a small information tech nology consulting rm, believes the Legislatures treatment of craft brew ers shows whats wrong with government. Instead of helping a rapidly grow ing industry, Republicans agreed to lift the ban on half-gallon growlers but only if the small brewers agreed to additional regu lations that would have restricted their growth. The bill died. Some of these brew ers would actually have to sell their beer to a distrib utor and buy it back at an increased cost before they could sell it in their own establishment. Thats ri diculous, Wyllie said. Further on down the bar at Green Room, Wyl lie approached Joseph Adazzio, a 42-year-old Republican from Volusia County who was visiting Jacksonville for the day. What issues are im portant to you? Pick my brain, Wyllie said. As the two talked, Wyllie turned to a campaign aide and exclaimed, Sounds like a Libertarian! Afterward, Adazzio said he knew nothing about Wyllie before the encounter, but said he would consider voting for him. He seemed to listen. He seemed to agree, said Adazzio, who hadnt been won over by Crist or Scott. Some people say vot ing for a third option is a wasted vote; I dont think it is. Voters are so frustrated by both parties that I wouldnt be surprised if the third-party candidate did better than they usually do. If Wyllie gets 5 to 10 percent, that could have a major impact on our governors race depending on which way voters go. Matthew Corrigan University of North Florida political science professor 3 Franklin prison guards red in death investigation By DARA KAM The News Service of Florida CARRABELLE In what has become a frequent ex ercise, Department of Cor rections Secretary Mike Crews on Friday red 32 workers accused of break ing the law, including three prison guards involved in the gassing death of an in mate at a Franklin County prison four years ago. All of the workers red were on administrative leave pending a review launched earlier this summer. The housecleaning is part of the secretarys attempt to salvage the reputation of the beleaguered agency in the wake of reports of widespread abuse and cor ruption, whistleblower com plaints and federal investi gations of prisoner deaths. Among the axed workers are Rollin Austin, Randall Johnson and Kevin Hamp ton, three former prison guards at Franklin Correc tional Institution in Carra belle, where inmate Randall Jordan-Aparo died after al legedly being gassed repeat edly by guards and then left to die. Dismissal letters say they are being let go because they participated in a force incident that resulted in the death of an inmate. None of the red workers has been arrested or charged with any crimes. Four Department of Cor rections investigators say they have been retaliated against for exposing a cov er-up about Jordan-Aparos death in September 2010. The investigators claim Gov. Rick Scotts chief in spector general Melinda Miguel who refused to grant them whistleblower protection was aware of the cover-up for at least three years. The DOC in vestigators, who found that Jordan-Aparo was too ill to warrant being treated as a threat, are now the subjects of internal reviews. According to a whistle blower lawsuit, Austin gave the order to gas Jordan-Ap aro, who died ve hours lat er after being gassed twice more and left to die. The 27-year-old, coated in yel low residue from the nox ious chemicals, was found dead in solitary conne ment with a Bible beside his head. He was serving an 18-month sentence for fraud and drug charges. Also red Friday were nine Charlotte Correc tional Institution guards in volved in the April 11 death of inmate Matthew Walker, who was allegedly beaten to death while handcuffed. Walkers death and that of another inmate who died at the Punta Gorda facility a month later are among more than 80 inmate deaths being probed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Fifteen prison guards at Union Correctional Institu tion, all under investigation for use-of-force incidents against prisoners over the past two years, were also pink-slipped Friday. Crews review also re sulted in three employees being sent back to work, in cluding the assistant war den at the Raiford prison, Nan Jeffcoat has been on leave with pay since the death of an inmate two years ago. I have made it clear that there is zero tolerance for corruption or abuse at the Department of Corrections, and we continue to root out any and all bad actors who do not live up to our expec tations. Our standards are high and we will accept noth ing less to ensure the safety of our staff and those in our custody, as well as Florida families, Crews said.

The Supreme Court has been asked to decide wheth er or not secret evidence should have been used dur ing a landmark redistricting trial. The evidence, which included 31 pages of emails and documents, was re viewed by the judge but has not been made public. The documents belong to employees of a Gaines ville-based GOP political consulting rm who were not directly named in the lawsuit that challenged Floridas 27 congressional districts. But the groups that sued, which included the League of Women Vot ers of Florida, contend the documents proved that the consultants worked in con cert with Republican legis lators to violate the states Fair Districts amendments. Those amendments say legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incum bents or a political party. A circuit judge in July ruled that two congressional districts were improperly drawn to aid Republicans so legislators changed them during an August special session. Judge Terry Lewis cited the secret evidence as crucial in helping him reach his verdict. Justices, who have no timetable to rule on the evidence dispute, held an hour-long hearing during which attorney Kent Safriet argued that his clients have First Amendment rights that allow them to keep their political activities private. He said the evidence never should have been used by Lewis and should remain under seal. The hearing even turned testy at the end where Safriet began arguing that redis tricting amendments were possibly unconstitutional if they eclipsed his clients free speech rights. Pat Bainter, president and owner of Data Target ing, went even further in a statement, calling the ongo ing tussle over the evidence the culmination of a legal assault and press sensa tionalism as to whether or not I, a private citizen, have the right to petition my government without fear of a political inquisition into my private matters. Bainter said that the very institutional integrity of the Florida Supreme Court is at stake in this matter. Justice Barbara Parien te, however, was skeptical with those arguments. She pointed out that his clients did not assert a First Amendment privilege on the documents until after a judge had held his client in contempt for failing to turn them over as initially re quested. She said she was concerned that Bainter and his employees had engaged in an obfuscation of legiti mate discovery requests. Justice Ricky Polston pointed out that the re quested documents were included in the original subpoena to Bainter and his company and suggested that he had waived his right to contest the request when he did not initially object to it. John Mills, an attorney representing the coalition groups that sued the Legis lature, said Bainter initially insisted to the groups that that he was following the redistricting process for fun while the documents show he was helping cir cumvent the restrictions put in place. Mills also said there were zero reasons for any of the documents to remain private. Media organiza tions, including The Associ ated Press, also have asked in a friend of the court brief for the documents to be released. The hearing did show the intense partisan nature of the ongoing battle over re districting as Safriet quoted comments made by Demo cratic consultants about trying to get more Jewish voters into districts. Those comments were included in documents that the Re publican-controlled Legis lature had obtained during the course of the lawsuit. Bainter in his statement lashed out at Democrats since a national Demo cratic group has helped pay the legal bills of one of the groups suing. State campaign nance records show that Baint ers law rm has been paid almost $500,000 in the past two years by the Republi can Part of Florida to work on the case.

JOE TOPS JEFFERSON COUNTY BAY, MOSLEY FALL Holmes County edges Bozeman By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com BONIFAY Neither rain nor Thors mighty hammer could keep Holmes County from its rst win on Friday. The god of thunder provided a 40-minute lightning delay, but Chad Leavins struck twice for the Blue Devils in a 27-20 win over visiting Bozeman. Holmes County rode Leavins 139 yards and a late comeback to a 1-2 mark and more importantly a 1-0 start in District 3-1A. Bozeman still seeks a victory and fell to 0-4, 0-1. Justice Bice dived across the pylon to complete a 12-yard pass connection with Shane Sellers for the winning score with 33 seconds left in the game. Bice also grabbed two key rst-down catches where he outjumped a Bozeman defender to extend the drive. His 2-point conversion capped the scoring. David Elmores last shots to give Bozeman a win fell incomplete. However, he led the Bucks to a 20-19 lead late in the fourth quarter. Elmores 1-yard scoring run, his second touchdown of the game, capped a 10play drive to pull Bozeman within 20-14. He later hit Daniel Kirkland on the right side, and two missed tackles later the Bucks were ahead by one with 4:53 to go. Elmore passed for 228 yards with receiver Logan Foster sharing 100 of them. Bozeman squandered opportunities as well. The rst came when the Bucks were forced to punt after recovering the secondhalf onside kick. The second was highlighted by a dropped pass in the end zone on a drive that ended on on downs. Bozeman recorded the games rst score on the strength of a 63-yard connection between Elmore and Foster. It set up Elmores 1-yard plunge ve plays later. It was Bozemans initial touchdown in the rst half this season. Leavins and Holmes County started a healthy march to Bozemans 35 before of cials pulled the teams off the eld with 4:43 left in the rst quarter. The weather delay lasted until 7:55 p.m. Cole Marell tied the game on a 20-yard reception from Sellers that capped a 15-play drive shortly after the game resumed. The teams swapped punts on three straight possessions, with Bozeman downing the ball at the 1 to set up Holmes Countys nal drive of the half. Any hope of forcing another punt withered with a 16-yard Leavins run and a personal foul against Bozeman. Sellers found Marell for 30 yards on third-and-9 to set up the Blue Devils at the 13. Leavins took it the rest of the way for a 13-7 lead as the skies opened again with a harder deluge of rain. Bozeman bled the nal minutes off the rst-half clock and the teams went to the locker room more than 90 minutes after the game started. Bozeman hosts Vernon next week, while Holmes County is at Walton in nondistrict games.

BOZEMAN By TINA HARBUCK Halifax Media Services SANTA ROSA BEACH South Walton quarterback Jonathon Ortner aired it out for 250 yards and three touchdowns to put the Seahawks on top for a 28-14 win over the visiting Blountstown Tigers in a District 3-1A contest. I thought our defense played their tails off, and we scored like we needed to, South Walton coach Phil Tisa said. It was a good ball game. The Seahawks mixed it up with 81 yards rushing and 250 through the air. Donnie Grosskopf had 10 carries for 37 yards and a TD, while Ben Balfanz had a 5-yard catch for the rst TD of the evening. Austin Garofalo had a catch in the second quarter for 17yard score and Alex Smith scored the last touchdown of the game in the nal minutes on a 65-yard catch and run. Thats what you got to do, thats how you keep teams off balance, Tisa said. South Walton led 21-0 at the half. Blountstown scored late in the third quarter on a 16yard pass play from Chason Roulhac to Tristen Burke, and then one last time midway of the fourth. After an interception by Ayers Hassig, the Tigers scored in four plays. Quarterback Roulhac scored on a 3-yard plunge up the middle. The PAT was good for a 21-14 game. Ortner powers South Walton over Blountstown Chipleys Wyatt Brock (12), Adrian Sims (22), and Marcus Swint (1) move in against a Walton ball carrier on Friday night in a 43-26 defeat. The start of the game in Chipley was delayed 45 minutes by dangerous weather. CAROL KENT The News WALTON 43, CHIPLEY 26

Feitsma has been named a Commended Student in the 1995 National Merit Scholarship Program. Ray Pigott receives FFAs national honor Ray Pigott agriculture education instructor and FFA advisor at Chipley High School has been nominated to receive the Honorary American Farmer degree. This weeks article is second in a series of two which grew out of a visit of one loyal reader, accompanied by a friend, to the Grandview Assisted Living facility, on Highway 280 West. This home has been providing Senior Living Services for many years and is operated by Cathy Ward Miller as administrator and CEO at 5250 Douglas Ferry Road, Bonifay. My dedicated readers will recall that the Prattler has permitted contributing editors to come forward and utilize the entire space of the column to honor special persons, events or history. In this instance, the person furnishing the information for these two columns, has done so with the condition that no names will be mentioned as to whose idea spawned two Perrys Prattle. The statement from last weeks column is repeated: Judge, dont mention my name in any way. The newspaper article is yours, and people appreciate your weekly writings. The rst article has gone to print with the request honored. The challenge to keep the identity of the contributing person anonymous is rst and foremost in mind on this further tribute, stemming from the Grandview Assisted Living visit. The two friends who made the recent visit to the Senior Living Home were surprised to learn that three of the residents at Grandview were in high school at the same time as one of the visitors. In this context, high school means Washington County High School, located in Chipley, as that was the name at the time. The residents receiving the visit were John Curtis, Flo Chase and Maggie Kittrell. These residents acknowledge that they enjoy reminiscence of former days of youth. As they were talking on this particular day with the two visitors about their school days, the conversation turned to former teachers, thus the full article last week on Pat Green Peacock. Other teachers of their era remembered by the group include Mrs. Addie Wyatt, Miss Clara Bright, who taught Latin, Mrs. Gussie Glen Wilson, whose mother, Laura Owens of the Wausau community, married Mr. John Glen, native of Scotland. Others recalled were Miss Frankie McGeachy, Mrs. Georgia McGraw, who taught Mathematics, Mrs. Ophelia Wells, an English teacher and Mrs. Susie Williams, who was the home economics teacher. One of the group commented that Mrs. Addie Wyatt always gave students a reason to smile before she started teaching. Whoever was relating the humorous story told by the teacher to the class on this particular day, gave this rendition: Mrs. Wyatt roomed with the Richards family, who had a dry cleaning business in their yard where the old gymnasium still stands. The story continues: Mrs. Wyatt also had a parrot and the teacher told the class that one day a farmer was in town with a load of wood for sale. He was hollering wood for sale as his mule and wagon went up and down the streets. Mrs. Wyatts parrot answered and told the man to carry it to the back yard. When Mrs. Richards saw the man throwing the wood into the backyard, she inquired as to why he was doing it. His answer was: Somebody told me to bring it to the back yard. Mrs. Richards then knew who the culprit was, but bought the wood anyway. Since Washington County High School in Chipley was the only high school in the county during that era, students came by school bus from Caryville and other surrounding communities to attend and graduate here. The school was a starting point for good opportunities, seeking to learn and recognize their potential for further educational possibilities. Some of the group came up with the listing of Honor Roll students for January 1928: 12th grade; none; 11th grade, Alma Butler, Melba Hutchinson, Bernice Malloy, Ef e Register, Annie Merle Tharp and Mildred Yates; 10th grade, Catherine Hutchinson and Rex Yates; 9th grade, Hugh Brock, Elaine Davis, Harold Kelly, Ava Grace Vickers and Evelyn Wright. After designs by architects Hirsch and Jones of Montgomery in 1931, the Washington County School Board contracted with M. R. Coggin Construction Company of Chipley to build a high school in Vernon. The contract price was $21,250. Records indicate that the rst school was held in the building in 1933 with Mercer Cox as rst principal. The Prattler has alluded to our mystery person as having made complimentary responses to the column since its beginning. Recently these comments came after my sister, Minnie Lee Wells Russ, was mentioned: I read your memories of Minnie Lee, and it brought back such good times of when she and I were both working at DOT. I had many good moments of talking with her, and I think of the friendship we shared. A more recent comment came after the Thomas Ray Harrell picture appeared: I want to mention how happy I was to see Thomas Ray Harrells picture, along with his wifes in your recent column. He was such a nice guy, and I will always remember him as a friend of all of DOT employees. He was the type of man that you didnt have to ask if he was a good person, for his actions always proved he was. Your writer has enjoyed assimilating these articles for the past two weeks on the information furnished by our phantom friend. I trust that the wishes have been ful lled and no secrets divulged. No promises are being made as we pursue a new approach next week.

Kevin is employed as a Corporal at the Holmes County Jail. Doctors Memorial Staff are directing and decorating for the wedding as well as catering the reception. Wedding Special to Extra Motorists continue to enjoy a discount at the pump, as gas prices fall to their lowest point since February. Nationally, the price of gas fell six cents in the past week, marking a seven week decline in gasoline prices. Last week reneries switched from producing summer to winter-blend fuel, said Josh Carrasco, spokesman, AAA, The Auto Club Group. Winter-blend gas is cheaper to produce, because it does not require the additives necessary in summer-blend. Also, here in the U.S. we continue beneting from historic do mestic oil production. Both of these factors continue placing downward pres sure on gas prices. The price for a barrel of WTI oil rose 14 cents this week on the NYMEX to close at $92.41. Oil supply reductions from the Orga nization of Petroleum Ex porting Countries placed upward pressure on oil prices. Libya shut down its largest oil eld due to escalating tensions in the area, while Saudi Arabia announced their largest reduction in oil exports in 18 months. OPEC supplies about 40 percent of the worlds oil. Right now, domes tic oil supply is outpacing demand, Carrasco said. Geo-political tensions and supply cuts caused oil to increase this week, but looking ahead it will be challenging for OPEC to cut production to the point that it has signicant im pact, due to high crude pro duction in the U.S. Some markets could even see gas prices dip below the $3 a gallon mark by the end of the fourth quarter. The current national av erage for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.34, 6 cents less than a week ago and 10 cents cheaper than a month ago. Prices fell four cents this week in Tennessee, to $3.14 a gal lon. While in Florida and Georgia the average price of gas sits at $3.29 a gallon, three cents cheaper than last week.S P E CIA L TO E X T R A Carly Miller and other members of Blue Springs Society, Children of the American Revolution, are getting ready for Marianna Day on Saturday, Sept. 27.

The weather was perfect and, under the direction of Master Weaver Sharon Hynes, 15 students spent the morning converting plain ol gourds into beautifully decorated gourd baskets using dried materials as embellishments. There is not a lot of weaving with this type of basket, however it is quite involved. First, dried gourds are scrubbed clean and an opening is made in the top. After the inside is scraped out and sanded, the outside is waxed. Small holes are drilled along the opening to carry a wire or waxed cord which is used to hold a variety of embellishments in place. Reed and rafa are used to hide or replace the wire. Just like a woven reed basket, no two baskets are ever alike, Hynes said. The Historical Society is pleased to offer another type of handicraft, especially one using the gourd. The Native Americans in our area, as well as the early settlers, had countless uses for the dried gourd. Historically gourds have been used to care water, toys, store food, homes for Purple Martins, dishes, bowls, drinking containers, boat oats, drums, stringed instruments and the list goes on. The creations made here today will be purely decorative, however Im sure many people can still remember the gourd dipper that hung on Grandmas back porch by the water bucket, Dorothy Odom, museum director, said. If you would like more information about Washington County Historical Societys Museum or activities, please contact Dorothy Odom at 638-0358. The museum, which is located at 685 7th Avenue in Chipley, is open every Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the rst Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. until noon, and other days by special arrangement.

The presentation of their own white coats, used to recognize health care professionals throughout the world, represents the next crucial stage of their education in which they will actively engage with patients and other professionals. At the Harrison School of Pharmacy, faculty members view student pharmacists as junior colleagues in the profession of pharmacy. Thus, the presentation of the white coat symbol izes their formal induc tion into the profession of pharmacy. Although the students still are trainees, the event symbolizes their entry into the profession of pharmacy. I consider it to be a privilege and honor to be the person that coats students on their arrival and hoods them when they graduate, HSOP Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs Paul Jungnickel said. The day of the white coat ceremony and grad uation day are my two most favorite days on the HSOPs academic calendar. Presenting the white coats to members of our enter ing class is especially meaningful to me and I enjoy sharing in this joy ous time for our entering class. The class of 2018 is made up of 149 students with 127 on the Auburn campus and 22 on the Mobile campus. The group brings a diverse background to HSOP as the class is made up of students from 16 differ ent states and almost 40 different universities. Hutching elected chairman FCJST commission Special to The News Greg Hutching was elect ed chairman of the Florida Criminal Justice Standards & Training Commission in August, after being elected by fellow members to vice chairman in August 2013. Hutching, 39, succeeded James C. Brock Jr. for the commission term ending Aug. 1, 2016. He was selected for the position by Gov. Rick Scott. The 19-member Florida Criminal Justice Standards & Training Commission, which establishes guidelines and offers oversight into most of the law enforcement activity in the state of Flor ida, is composed of a very specic mix of members and carries much responsibility. Reluctant to speak about himself, Hutching did com ment, I dont like to say a lot about me but I think this is another huge thing for our school and area and as for me, it is an overwhelming lifetime accomplishment. The commission includes three sheriffs, three chiefs of police, ve law enforcement ofcers (who are neither sheriffs or chiefs and who are the rank of sergeant or below within the employ ing agency), one person in charge of a county correc tional institution, two correc tional ofcers (one of whom is an administrator of a state correctional institution, and one who is of the rank of sergeant or below within the employing agency), one training center director, one Florida resident who falls into none of the above cate gories, the attorney general or designated proxy), the secretary of department of corrections (or designated proxy) and the director of the Florida Highway Patrol. Martha Compton, direc tor of WHTC, said, We are very proud of this appoint ment of one of our own to such a prestigious board. Greg exemplies the caliber of people in our community and the quality of teaching staff we enjoy here at our school.
