Board approves staffing plan revisions


JENI BOOKER SENTER
jsenter@srpressgazette.com
At the meeting of the Santa
Rosa County School District
Board on Tuesday evening at
the Canal Street Boardroom, the
board approved revisions to the
2009-10 staffing plan.
This plan was originally
drafted by a personnel commit-
tee formed in January of 1990 to
study the allocation of personnel
for the school system and draft a
plan for the equitable allocation of

personnel.
After a study of the 1987 staff-
ing plan, state requirements, and
staff demands, the committee
submitted a staffing plan to the
School Board for recommenda-
tion and approval.
The plan is reviewed annually
to determine if adjustments are


needed due to budget, curricu-
lum, or legislative mandates.
Obviously, with the financial
crisis that local, state, and na-
tional officials are dealing with,
adjustments needed to be made
in order to more' efficiently staff
schools.
According to the staffing plan,
schools must make "every effort
to comply with the staffing al-
locations. In the event a school
exceeds the staffing allocation for
an area other than instructional
and administration, replacement


positions will not be granted until'
a school is within staffing guide-
lines."
A further recommendation of
the committee is that "when a
school exceeds the staffing plan,
transfer of appropriate person-
nel will be considered." Approval
from the superintendent is re-
quired before a school may ex-
ceed staffing allocations.
The staffing, plan is based on
projected student enrollment, but
adjustments to personnel may be
made if adequate funding base


can be demonstrated.
The only position that is to
be phased out under the revised
2009-10 staffing plan is the posi-
tion of school helper. -According
to the plan, the position will be
phased out as 'personnel resign.
"However, this position may be
used; when necessary, to meet
Worker's Compensation Return
to Work Guidelines," according to
the report.

Headed Girl


By BILL GAMBLING
bgamblin@srpressgazette.com

Milton's Pete Strecker
has had a lot on his mind
this week.
Just like Charlie Brown
in the famous Peanuts' car-
toons, a little red headed
girl caught Strecker's eye
and attention.
Ironically Strecker does
not know who she is, but he
is very interested in trying
to find out.
So interested in fact he
is asking your help in find-
ing her. -
"I saw her on Sunday as


I was taking some things
to the recycling bins out on
Sterling Way," said Streck-
er, who is 48. "She saw me
and we smiled and waved
at each other.
"By the time I came to
my senses she was gone."
His attempts to find the
woman he described as
five foot tall with short red
hair driving a. white sta-
tion wagon type' car might
seem odd, but Strecker
doesn't think so.
"I thought what the
heck," laughed Strecker.
"Why not put an ad in the

Santa Rosa County
Deputies have arrested
one and are looking for the
second man involved in a
home invasion robbery this
past February on Swanner
Road.
Stephen Allen Wilson, 26
of Lake End Drive in Mil-
ton, was charged with home
invasion robbery and grand
theft.
Wilson was arrested


as investigators were able
to extract DNA from a ski
mask that was located near
the scene.
Preliminary findings
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
revealed that the DNA ob-
tained matched the DNA
which had been collected by
investigators from Stephen
Wilson.
A second suspect, Bran-
don Joseph Harris, 19, is
also wanted by officials on

The proclamation
highlights that increased
bicycle usage can help
reduce motor vehicle
emissions and thereby
reduce global climate
change impacts.
"Florida has many
great places to ride a
bike, enjoy the fresh
spring air and get some
exercise," said Jena
Brooks, Director of
DEP's Greenways and
Trails."In addition to
the many great paved
trails, you might want
tq experience Florida's
nationally recognized
mountain bike trails and
March is the perfect
time to take on a new
adventure."'
American Trails
recently named Florida
as the "Best Trails State
in America," recognizing
DEP's Office of
Greenways and Trails for
its vision and leadership.
Of the eight state trails,
six are rail-trails, which
are railroad corridors


converted to recreational
trails for hiking, biking,
skating, equestrian
activities and alternative
transportation.
Florida, known for
coastal beauty not only
provides bike enthusiasts
with a chance to ride
on the hard sandy
surfaces of the east
coast beaches such as
those found at Amelia
Island State Park, but
also some mountainous
trails most people don't
necessarily associate
with the Sunshine State.
Carved out of former
quarries Florida bike
enthusiasts can enjoy
riding on a mountainous
terrain offered at the
Santos Bike Trail East
and Alafia River State
Park south of Tampa.
Two state parks in
South Florida also offer
exciting bike trails, Oleta
River State Park in North
Miami and Jonathan
Dickinson State Park in
Hobe Sound.

Baby Milton case


JENI BOOKER SENTER
jsenter@.srpressgazette.conmi
According to the Direc-
tor of the Medical Exam-
iner's Office Jeff Martin,
the histology reports for
Baby Milton have been
reviewed, but the file re-
mains pending.
Martin says the toxicol-
ogy reports on the infant
were returned to the Medi-
cal Examiner's Office on
March 16, but have yet to
be ruled on.
"Dr. Schneider was
able to review the histol-
ogy slides already, but the
toxicology was not back
yet at that time. The toxi-
cology results came back
two days ago and the file is
waiting for Dr. Schneider's
review. Within the next day
or two we should have it
[the investigation] final-
ized. The examiner has to
review the slides and make
his ruling and then we will
note the file accordingly,"
says Martin.
The autopsy was com-
pleted on December 30,
but the results were incon-
clusive at that time.
On December 29, Henry
McGill of Milton was pres-
sure. washing his home
and his wife Tonya was in
the garage when their dog
discovered the body of a
newborn infant in a wood-
ed area'adjacent to their
home near Whiting Field
at the intersection of Hwy
87 and Clear Creek Road.'
McGill dialed 911 from
his cell phone about 4 p.m.
and reported the grizzly
discovery.
"It seemed to be a full
term baby," Henry said,
adding they could tell it
was a newborn from its
size, about 18 inches.
The McGills said they
didn't see anything out of
the ordinary except for
a strange car parked on
their street the day of the
discovery. Tonya, Henry's
wife, said it was a light,


blue sedan she didn't rec-
ognize.
The child was covered
with dirt and was missing
an arm. Information was
leaked during the planning
of a funeral for the infant
that the sex of the child
was male. The funeral for
Baby Milton was held on
January 20 at 4 p.m.
At his grave, a simple
marker identifies the boy
as "Milton's baby."
"The night they found
the baby I was home having
dinner with my family and
they askdd me what could
be done so the baby would
have a proper burial," re-
called Jeff Wilkinson, who
.is the Location Manager
and Funeral Director for
National Cremation and
Burial Society. "I thought
that,would be a good thing
and I have the power to do
that."
Melissa Roper with the
Medical Examiner's Office
in Pensacola said back in
January that the results of
the examination of the in-
fant's body were -expected
to be complete at the end
of February.
"We expect the results
will be in, approximately
eight weeks from the date
of the autopsy. The tests
were performed at the end
of last month, so we are
probably looking at around
the end of February," said
Roper. .
Santa Rosa Sheriff's
Department- spokesman
Sgt. Scott Haines said the
Sheriff's Office is waiting
on findings from the Medi-
cal Examiner's Office to.
proceed.
"We don't have any new
information on the case
and we are basically on
hold until we get a report
from the ME's Office. We
are still welcoming- calls
from anyone who has any
information regarding the
case. We have no addition-
al leads at this tijne to fol-
low up on," says Haines.

Smith Tractor Company holds dinner


Written By Brenda Gabbert

Smith Tractor held their annual John
- Deere Day dinner on Thursday, March 5
at the Jay School Cafeteria. The event is
held each year to show the local farmers
that Smith Tractor appreciates their busi-
ness.
Farmers and their families began ar-
riving at 6 p.m. with eAch family receiving
a gift package as they came in the door.


Everyone was welcomed by Ricky Smith,
who manages all three dealerships owned
by the Smith family, in Jay, Atmore and
Frisco, Ala.
After the warm welcome, dinner was
served which consisted of fried fish, hush-
puppies, barbecue, several sides, drinks
and dessert. It was very good.
Following dinner, Tom Trible, Territory
Manager for John Deere, showed video
on the latest John Deere equipment. This
is the year 'of the utility tractor. He also

showed video of years past and the latest
equipment. It was interesting to see how
advanced equipment is today compared
to the equipment of the past.
After the video show, it was time to
draw for prizes. The big prize was a fish


cooker. The oldest farmer present was 89
year-old Mr. Stokes, who was presented
with a John Deere pocket knife.
The John Deere Company was happy
to again present Ricky Smith with the Me-
dallion Award.


Flood-prone areas might be eligible for

restoration, protection from stimulus funds


Special to the Press Gazette
U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture (USDA) will pro-
vide up to $145 million to
eligible landowners nation-
wide through the floodplain
easement component of its
Emergency Watershed Pro-
tection (EWP) Program,
Agriculture Secretary Tom
Vilsack announced today.
USDA's Natural Resourc-
es Conservation Service
(NRCS) administers the
EWP program. The funds'
will be used to restore an
estimated 60,000 acres,
nationwide, of frequently,
flooded land to its natural
state and create jobs. USDA
has limited spending to no
more than $30 million per
state.
Carlos Suarez, NRCS,


state conservationist in
Florida,'announced that eli-
gible landowners can sign
up for these easements
from March 9 -27,2009.
"We will be working with,
landowners who voluntarily
agree to restore the flood-
plains to their natural con-
dition by placing their land
into easements," Suarez
said.
Secretary Vilsack said
green jobs can be created in
rural communities nation-
wide when landowners es-
tablish conservation prac-
tices on the land entered
into easement. Jobs will be
created mostly in the engi-
neering, biology and con-
struction fields when trees
and native grasses are,
planted and the hydrology
of the floodplain is restored.

The funding, obtained
from the American Re-
covery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009, includes both
technical and financial as-
sistance to restore the
easements. All funds will be
spent on targeted projects
that can be completed with
economic stimulus monies.
The goal is to have all flood-
plain easements acquired
and restored within 12-18
months.
The EWP Program's
floodplain easement com-
ponent allows USDA's Nat-
ural Resources Conserva-
tion Service (USDA-NRCS)
to purchase easements on
lands damaged by flood-
ing. The restored floodplain
will generate many public
benefits, such as increased
flood protection, enhanced


fish and wildlife habitat, im-
proved water quality, and
a reduced need for future
public disaster assistance.
Other benefits include re-
duced energy consumption
when certain agricultural
activities and practices are
eliminated and increased
carbon sequestration as
permanent vegetative cov-
er is re-established.
Interested landowners
in Florida can contact Jesse
Wilson, State Conserva-
tion Engineer and EWP
Program Manager at (352)
338-9557 for floodplain ease-
ments during the signup.

Pine Level church holds yard sale

Written By Brenda Gabbert
On Saturday, March 7, Pine Level Baptist held a yard
sale and fish fry The sale began at 7 a.m. and was spon-
sored by the Women on a Mission. The money raised will go
to the church's local missions.
The men were busy cooking the catfish, mullet, and
hushpuppies for the fish dinner plates that were ready, be-
ginning at 11 a.m. It was delicious! I also found several items
at the yard sale that I couldn't do without.
There were several yard sales going on in Jay the same
day, even one at the Jay Assembly of God Church. There
was another one at the Relay for Life Car Show at the Bray-
Hendricks City Park It was an eventful day in Jay.

Santa Rosa's Press Gazette I A7


Dr. Sheila Mohammed, Occupational Medicine,


leaves lasting legacy at Santa Rosa Medical Center


By OBIE RAIN
ocrain @ srpressgazette.comi
She's one of a kind!
And with the credentials
that define her education,
experience, research, and
professional achievements,
Dr. Sheila Mohammed is a
prized addition to the medi-
cal staff of Milton's Santa
Rosa Medical Center.
With offices established
in the Santa Rosa Urgent
Care center located at 4944-
Highway 90 in Pace (north-
east of WalMart and Office
Depot' respectively), Santa
Rosa Medical Center has
opened this practice cater-
ing mainly to the care of
injured workers on referral
from insurance adjusters,
workers compensation au-
thorities, and sometimes
from other physicians
who seek out her services
through their own referral
processes.
And as the lone, re-
search trained occupational
medical physician in this
area, her association with
Santa Rosa Medical Center
not only enhances its abil-
ity to serve the public and
private sector with occupa-
tional health programs and
facilities, but brings with it a
great deal of prestige for the
hospital.
A self-styled "Caribbean
girl," Dr. Mohammed is a
native of the Virgin Islands
where she grew up and
trained to become a phar-
macist at the .University
of the West Indies in 1984.
From there it became a
whirlwind of academic and
residential medical pro-
grams undertaken at such
prestigious institutions
as the City University of
New York in New York City,
American University of the
Caribbean, with a medical
degree and a Master of Sci-
ence from the University of
South Florida and two years
of clinical training in Lon-
don, UK
Internships at Hurley
Medical Center, Rehabili-
tation Medicine at Mercy
Hospital in Pittsburgh, and
Family Medicine at Union
Hospital in Terre Haute,
Indiana, eventually brought
her to The University' of
South Florida in Tampa
where" she acquired her
Master of Science in Public
Health (MSPH), and magna
cum Laude at that!
It was her University of
South Florida studies at the
National Institute of Occu-
pational Safety and Health
Sunshine Educational Re-
search Center on the way
to her Master of Science
in Public Health that she
found most enjoyable in her
National Occupational Re-
search Agency activities.
Professor Stuart M.
Brooks, M.D. who was
Director of Occupational
medicine Residency at the
University of South Florida


OBIE CRAIN I Press Gazette
Dr. Sheila Mohammed takes a'great deal of pride
in the award-winning poster project which she pre-
pared as a thesis for her Master of Science in Public
Health (MSPH) degree last year at the University of
South Florida Tampa. She-is now Medical Director
of the Santa Rosa Medical Center's Occupational
Health Department with offices at 4944 Highway 90
in Pace and caters to the care of injured workers.


said he judged her "...to
be in the upper 10 percent
of all the residents I have
trained. You can never be
* replaced!"
That's significant recog-
nition in anybody's portfolio!
But it's far from all that was
attributed to her. Dr. Stuart
M. Brooks a professor and
director of occupational
medicine Residency at the
university characterized
her as one who "...exhibited
advanced clinical skills ...
and an exceptional level of
knowledge in'the occupa-
tional medicine setting."
In her own estimation,
Dr. Mohammed consid-
ers her thesis and poster
presentation produced in
connection with her MSPH
which received the "Out-
standing Poster for the Col-
lege of Public health Award"
to be among her most excit-
ing achievement in terms of
her academic career.
But with all the training
and research that might
have eventually become
an overload for some, Dr.
Mohammed continued to
develop in personality and
outlook. She is a caring,
compassionate individual
who admits that sometimes
the sheer emotional appre-,
ciation that she receives
from some of her patients
"...simply couldn't be bought


with money."
Arid a personal life? She
has a very active and self-
fulfilling one. She's an avid
reader and devotes at least
three and a half hours each
week to reading that keeps
her abreast of new trends
and technologies. "I re-
serve a half hour each night
to read," she said. "It keeps
me up to par."
She loves the outdoors
and walks, bikes, and en-
joys visiting the Blackwater
River State Park near Har-
old. The sun, the water, and
the fresh air, she says, are
reflections of her "growing
up" days in her native Vir-
gin Islands. She says she
enjoys sharing activities
with new friends like Joyce
Bray and Aleta Hoodless
who are very good compan-
ions that she's met since ar-
riving here.
Those individuals whom
she accepts are mainly
referrals from insurance
adjusters, unions, and em-
ployers, people who need
medical treatment for occu-.
pational injuries. Individual

appointments are assigned-
at her office only in the
event that she needs sub-
sequent consultations with
a patient.
Other areas in which
Dr. Mohammed specializes
include physical exams (in-
cluding DOT), fitness for
duty evaluations, indepen-
dent medical evaluations,
job-site evaluation, and
physician site visitations,
among others.
With the impeccable
credentials held by Dr. Mo-
hammed, she acknowledg-
es that she could have had
her choice of a great many
other locations to establish
her practice. But she chose
the Milton-Pace area which
says a great deal for this
area itself.
"It was the people who
influenced my choice to
come here, more than any-
thing else, that, and the cli-
mate," she said. "It's cooler
here than in South Florida,
but it suits me just fine. I
love it here. And the people
are very, very friendly. They
have welcomed me with
open arms. They are some
of the finest people I've ever
met, anywhere, and I've
travelled practically all over
the world. The people here
are really what made me
take this job."
And although she's only
been on the job here for two
months, she says she's ex-
cited. about the future and
the potential it promises.
What's ahead? When her
reputation grows to legend-
ary proportions and Santa
Rosa Medical Center ad-
vances to become the major
clearing house for environ-
mental and occupational
medicine in the Southeast,
the mountain will have
come to Mohammed!
And that will be her leg-
acy here.

Covenant Hospice
celebrates Certified
Nurses Day
PRESS GAZETTE STAFF REPORT
Covenant Hospice is cel-
ebrating Certified Nurses
Day, March 19 by honoring
its board certified nurses.
Board Certification of nurs-
es plays an increasingly
important role in the assur-
ance of high standards of
care for patients and their


loved ones. Nursing, like
health care in general has
become increasingly com-
plex. While a registered
nurse (RN) license provides
entry to general nursing
practice, the knowledge-
intensive requirements of
modern nursing require ex-
tensive post-secondary and
continuing education and
a strong personal commit-
ment to excellence by the
nurse.
Covenant Hospice nurs-
es are specially trained
in pain management and
symptom control tech-
niques that help to allevi-
ate the suffering often as-
sociated with a life-limiting
illness. Covenant nurses
make regularly-scheduled
visits, provide patient and
family education, skilled pa-
tient care, and are available
on a 24-hour per day on-call
basis for emergencies.
Covenant Hospice en-
courages Board Certifica-
tion in Hospice and Pallia-
tive Care (CHPN, CHLPN
or CHPNA) for all its nurses,
and the not-for-profit organi-
zation currently exceeds the
national average of certified
nurses. Of the Covenant
staff, 46% of RN's, 31% of
LPN's and 34% of Hospice
Aides are Certified in Hos-.
pice and Palliative Care.
Patients are encouraged to
inquire whether there are
certified nurses on staff
when they visit a hospital or
receive care from a health-
care provider.

OUR VIEW


How did



this happen?

Lots of taxpayers are fuming over Washing-
ton and how it allowed AIG to get away with
using tax dollars to pay astronomical bonuses
to those who more deserve a pink slip than a
bonus check.
It does sound crazy, doesn't it?
Yet something equally ironic is happening
just to. our west.
Every time an arts group comes to Pensac-
ola, does that group visit Santa Rosa County
students? Do they help educate, Santa Rosa
youngsters on the arts?
No, they are too busy touring Escambia
County, but when they need support or finan-
cial backing, they certainly don't leave us off
the mailing list or call list for donations.
It's hard to forget the line Commissioner
Don Salter used when the Pensacola Opera
came seeking a donation.
"I wear my fuxedo to the opera and my over-
alls to the opry."
We think the commissioner is right. Many
people feel the same way.
Yet Santa Rosa endeavors in the arts receive
little help from neighboring bodies.
Don't get us wrong, Pensacola is a nice
place. ,
But why is Santa Rosa County treated like
the red headed step child?
We are a thriving county with two of the fast-
est growing communities in the state: Pace
and Navarre.
Yet Escambia County and Pensacola only
come knocking when they want something.
Escambia County Commissioner Valentino
is another recent example. Valentino came
with his great road plan, seeking help in financ-
ing road construction supposedly in the "three
county area" of Escambia, Okaloosa, and Santa
Rosa Counties.
But it took Commissioner Gordon Goodin to
remind the man of the bad dealings Escambia
County had dealt regarding the current TPO
as it pulled funds from a Highway 98 project to
do yet-another one in Escambia County. This
was easy to do since they have a majority of
the votes.
The list could go on and on.
It's almost like these folks expect us to keep
taking a kicking.
But it is not just the business world that
does this to the residents of Santa Rosa County.
Even the local university does it to us as well.
The University of West Florida formed a
committee to study a football program. Now
they are talking about possibly moving up to
Division I in. sports like some other schools
have recently done.
There is a slight problem.
No one on the committee is from Santa Rosa
County.
UWF boasts about the number of students
and graduates front our area, but, for some
reason, we lack in voice in all of this.
When and if you add football or move to Divi-
sion I, these voiceless people will be the same
folks from whom you will attempt to garner
donations and the sale of season ticket pack-
ages. .
Maybe Santa Rosans have given Escambia
County and those in Pensacola the benefit of
the doubt for too. long and have overlooked the
way we often get kicked up around.
Now money is scarce and times are indeed
tough.
Now, more than ever, it is important to keep
local dollars local. We applaud the moves by
UWF to expand and improve, but feel we should
have a voice. Santa Rosa considers .UW.F its
own university. And many wonder why, in such
important decisions, we're not given a voice.
We're inclined to agree.

Put God in place
of fear and money

The Pharisees of the
- A. Cult. Lucifer. Uses-
have ceased the lips of the
school board. They have
nailed them down, but
what I don't understand is
this. How do they go down
without a fight of no kind?
What we have is a bunch of
Peters sitting on the board.
Then maybe they are not
Christ-like.
.It is time to put God in
the place of fear and money.
Because if your lips won't
move for God, then you are
enemy to the children who
need to know him. You are a
covet of dark countenance
because Christ said, "suf-
fer the little children and
forbid them not to come
unto me: for such is the
kingdom of Heaven," we
are to allow it. Even in the
schools. We are the leaders
of the children. If we don't
take our place in what goes
on in their lives for the bet-
terment, then we are part-
takers of what they become


Your VIEWPOINTS


,in the end. Thugs, sluts,
baby killers, drug addicts,
and everything else evil.
We need leaders, who
will be godly men and
women seven- days not
just Sunday. If any man or
woman whom claim to be a
man or woman of God, but
is fearful to take a stand for
Him, love their possessions
more than God, scared of
what the world will do or
say to them, a lot of our
school leaders are more
concerned about their 401
k then the betterment or
our children soul. Shame,
shame, shameful.

ACLU threatens
independence

Restrictions on our reli-
gious liberty, the Christian
faith in particular, by their
mother country was in
large part the very prem-
ise upon which the thirteen
British colonies declared
their independence.


America is currently
set on a collision course
to total restriction of reli-
gious liberty, via the likes of
the ACLU'and their fellow
travelers, while Christians
sit idly by, intimidated by
those elements, and let it
happen.
Religious liberty is not
confined just to a belief in
God, or following a particu-
lar denomination. It is im-
bued with freedom of con-
scious, the right to think
as we please, to form our,
own opinions, and to use
our best talents to seek the
truth.
For some 60 years now,
.the Supreme Court has
been a willing partner to
those who would eliminate
every symbol of the Chris-
tian faith, especially all
public references to God.
When we finally lose our
religious freedom and lib-
erty, guaranteed by the US
Constitution, we are no lon-
ger a "Nation under God,"
but a "Nation under."

BILL BLEDSOE
Milton, Fla.


Democrat against
nationalization

First the politicians
came and nationalized the
banks. I didn't speak up be-
cause I wasn't a banker.
Then they came and
nationalized health care. I
didn't speak up because I
wasn't a medical special-
ist.
Then they came and
nationalized the insurance
industry. I didn't speak up
because I wasn't and insur-
ance provider.
Then they came and na-
tionalized all public utility
companies. I didn't speak
up because I held no stock
with phone, light and water
companies.
Then they came and na-
tionalized all the churches;
by that time no one was left
to speak up for me.
This Democrat believes
we are going to see more
changes than we really
want.

Twenty-somethings Embark on



Journey of Self Discovery and Service


PRESS GAZETTE STAFF REPORT
This August Ralph
Kelley of Milton is joining
a group of twenty-some-
things is leaving the com-
fort of their homes and
possessions for a year in
search of a life filled with
adventure. They're calling
it a pilgrimage an oppor-
tunity to find themselves
and experience the world
firsthand.
Seth Barnes of Gaines-
ville, GA first conceived the
group's adventure, called
the World Race, in 2006. He
designed a trip that would
remove young people from
their comfortable lifestyles
for a year to see the world


and be transformed by
what they saw.
"This is a commitment
to a transformational dis-
covery process," Barnes
says. "The World Race
taps an ancient human
compulsion to take a spiri-
tual pilgrimage."
Participants travel to
11 countries in 11 months,
visiting multiple conti-
nents, and seeing some of
the wonders of the world.
They volunteer their time
and talent in the commu-
nities they visit: caring for
orphans in Africa, reach-
ing out to victims of the
human slave trade in Thai-
land, teaching English in
China, and much more.


The nearly yearlong
tripcontains a competitive
edge: Teams race from lo-
cation to location and are
rewarded for the races
they win. But the majority
of time spent in each place
is focused on serving the
local people and building
relationships with them.
2009is the fourth year
of the Wbrld Race, and
Barnes, founder of Adven-
tures in Missions, predicts;
"Thousands andthousands
of young people are going
to eventually embark on
this pilgrimage around the
world, because it provides
a context in which they can
discover themselves... and
how they fit in the world."


With nothing but a
backpack, these young
pilgrims live simply. They
travel from country to
country and learn how to
immerse themselves into
the local culture. They
post weblogs and Internet
videos of their new experi-
ences so friends and fam-
ily back home can hear the
stories. As they discover
the world's deepest needs
and how to meet them,
they find their identity and
calling in life.
"Most young people
have more questions than
answers... and what better
place to find answers than
on this pilgrimage around
the world," Barnes says.
