Total construction cost is estimated to be $4,682,400. Of that amount $3,848,464 will be in the form of a grant and the balance will be a low interest State of Florida Revolving Fund loan. This 82-percent grant is the larg est ever received by the City and is among the had full of projects selected at this time for principal for giveness grant funding. Be cause the City has escrow funds already available for DEP Revolving Loan repayment, this major im provement to the Citys wastewater system will be able to be constructed without any additional nancial impact on the Citys resi dences and businesses. Mayor James E. Sims, Jr. and the members of the City Council have been working hard on a major improvement program for the Citys Water and Sewer systems for the past three years, according to city staff. The ofcials have been suc cessful in obtaining more than $4 million in additional grant funding for Phase 1 of the I&I program which was recently completed. A new 500 gallon per minute water well and new water lines connecting that well to the hospital and DOC fa cility South of Interstate 10 has been completed. In ad dition, a major wastewater treatment plant renovation project has been designed and is anticipated to go out for bids in late Septem ber. These projects have been designed by Amir Za far, Project Engineer for Hatch Mott McDonald En gineers and administered by Bob Jones, City Grant Administrator. The new I&I Phase 2 and Pumping Station Improve ment project is anticipated to be under construction shortly after the rst of the year.

Special to the Times-Advertiser Technically, Holmes Countys unemployment rate dipped by two-tenths of a percent between July and August, from 8.5 per cent to 8.3 percent. In real life terms, there was virtually no change, according to ofcials at the Florida Department of Workforce Innovation who pointed out numbers of unemployed workforce members remained almost totally unchanged. There was an increase of 12 jobs in the retail sector, indicat ing a hint of better days to come. The countys work force dropped 24 gures show that as prospective employees leave the job market, locals will seek work elsewhere. Neighboring Washing ton County had an August unemployment rate of 11 percent, down from 11.2 percent in July. The statewide rate dropped last month by one tenth of a percent to 10.9, leading Gov. Rick Scott to say, The August job num bers prove that when you reduce the size, scope and cost of government, it al lows the private sector jobs to grow. For every job lost in the public sector, Florida gained two jobs in the pri vate sector. There is still a long road ahead, but by removing the red tape that restricts economic devel opment we are on the right path to getting Florida back to work. The addition of more than 71,000 jobs since the beginning of the year is positive news for all Florid ians and businesses and is a potent reminder that by making tough choices, we are doing the right things to turn the economy around. Holmes County ac counts for 32 of those jobs. By Felicia Kitzmiller Florida Freedom Newspapers P ANAMA CITY Stanley Porter said he was grate ful to be the rst customer speaker at the Florida Public Service Commis sions hearing on Gulf Powers proposed rate in crease Thursday night. The dry cleaning and laundry business owner had to rush back to work to prepare some uniforms for a morning pick up. He and his employees were working into the night because they have found they use 38 percent less electricity if they can do most of their cleaning af ter sunset. Last year, the Cotton dale resident who oper ates his business in Boni fay, said he paid $19,000 to Gulf Power in utility costs. At the current electricity prices, he struggled nan cially and closed a location in Chipley, laying off two employees. If Gulf Power is granted the base rate increase it has requested that would increase power bills by $12.15 for every 1,000 kilowatt hours used. Porter said he and the utility companys other 428,000 customers will face some very difcult decisions. Its virtually impossi ble to see how my little op eration in Bonifay ... how were going to survive, he said. The money is just not there in America to day to do what Gulf Power is asking us to do. When Gulf Power led to raise rates this sum mer, they cited huge in creases in the cost of do ing business since the last time they raised their base rate in 2002. The base rate is used to fund the daily operations of the company including poles, wires, customer service locations and repair costs. Power bills have gone up since the last time the base rate increased, but it was largely a result of in creases in the cost of fuel, which Gulf Power passes along to its customers at cost, spokesperson Jeff Rogers said. But consumers are fac ing the same rising costs, customer after customer pointed out at the public hearing in the main ball room of Holiday Inn Select on Martin Luther King Boulevard. Joyce Fox said she hasnt had a raise in three years, and she has to cope with climbing prices too. Every time we are about to make ends meet, someone moves the end, she said. An interim rate increase of $38.5 million, $4.49 per month for the typical user, went into effect in August, but the Public Service Com mission still has to make a ruling on the increase in its entirety. If it is rejected, the interim increase would have to be refunded to cus tomers with interest, public counsel J.R. Kelly said. Kelly, who is employed by the state to represent the rate payers in utility issues, said he will be ght ing against the increase and has discovered several items he will object to in court. For instance, he said, the increase would move the utility companys prot margin from 6 percent to 11 percent, an amount Kelly called entirely excessive in the current economy; a huge increase to the storm damage reserve fund; and the amassing of $27 million for the possible construc tion of a nuclear power plant some time in the future. Gulf Power has made returns to its shareholders every year, utility spokes woman Sandy Sims said. To ensure continued interest in the stock, Gulf Power is under pressure to continue providing high returns. If re turns diminish and interest in the stock declines, Sims said customers will have to shoulder more of the cost of providing electricity.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, September 21, 2011 Officials: F-22 to resume flights By Randal Yakey Florida Freedom Newspapers TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE After more than fourand-a-half months of be ing grounded, the F-22 Raptor once again will take to the skies. Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley and Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz on Monday announced an im plementation plan devel oped by Air Combat Com mand ofcials that will allow the F-22 Raptor to resume ight operations, according to Air Combat Command ofcials. We now have enough insight from recent stud ies and investigations that a return to ight is prudent and appropriate, Schwartz wrote in a news release Monday. Were managing the risks with our aircrews, and were continuing to study the F22s oxygen systems and collect data to improve its performance. Air Combat Command ofcials said they devel oped a comprehensive incremental return-to-y plan that balances safety and the expedient quali cation of pilots against the inherent risks of ying advanced combat aircraft, ofcials said. Neither the Air Force nor Lockheed Martin have said much during the past few months other than they were investigating the problem. The problem with the F-22 oxygen system came to light in Novem ber when an F-22 crashed just outside Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, killing the pilot, Capt. Jeff Haney. Air Force ofcials briey halted F-22 ghts out of Elmendorf after the crash. The Air Force con rmed a parallel investi gation of the on-board ox ygen systems of the A-10, F-15E, F-16, F-35 and T-6 aircraft, none of which y out of Tyndall. Tyndall Air Force Base ofcials said other aircraft continue to y to and from the base. Raptor sorties had been restricted to an altitude of 25,000 feet or below for training missions because of the oxygen system mal functions, according to Air Force ofcials. Tyndall Air Force Base is the home of the 325th Fighter Wing, whose primary mission is to provide air train ing for F-22 Raptor pilots, as well as maintenance personnel and air battle managers. Training for F-22 pilots is performed in the 43rd Fighter Squadron at Tyn dall. The 325th Air Control Squadron trains air battle managers for assignment to combat Air Force units. Tyndall and other lo cal military ofcials could not be reached for comment Monday night. From Staff Reports Modern Tech Squad CEO Scott Watkins re cently testied before the House Small Business Committee during a hear ing titled Innovative Ap proaches to Meeting the Workforce Needs of Small Businesses. Scott testied on behalf of Modern Tech Squad and the Computing Technology Industry Asso ciation (CompTIA) and fo cused on the importance of industry-led portable skills credentials. This is an extremely important issue for my company and for countless other small businesses across the nation, Watkins said during his testimony. With a CompTIA certi cation, I know that the customer will have peace of mind that their hardearned money is being well spent on someone who is trained properly and who provides the right solution the rst time. Modern Tech Squad is the only CompTIA Autho rized Service Center for computers, networks and server support in the Flor ida panhandle. All techni cians at Modern Tech Squad are CompTIA-certied. I was honored to be invited to testify before the House Small Business Committee, Watkins said. It is important for Con gress to hear from small businesses that are devel oping ways to better serve their customers, while also working to create jobs and strengthen our economy. I believe credentials en sure that the Modern Tech Squad customers receive quality service, and I want ed to encourage Congress to support these important tools. Modern Tech Squad Modern Tech Squad was founded by Watkins, his brother and his father three years ago. Modern Tech Squad provides a variety of services, includ ing computer-based diag nostics and repairs, net work and server support, break-x work and remote information technology support.

Bay Countys application for 10 potable water wells to be drilled along the Wash ington County border is being challenged by Washington County, the Knight family trust and pro se petitioners James Mur phy and Lee Lapenshon. According to Bay County ofcials, the wells are necessary as a backup water supply if Deer Point Lake somehow was contaminated, which is possible in the event of saltwater intru sion from a hurricane or chemical spills, either from the road over the dam or from nearby train tracks. The opponents have argued Bay County has not demonstrat ed sufcient need for the wells they fear would draw down the groundwater supply along with the Floridan Aquifer, damaging the environment and decreasing property values. The case is the rst to be heard at Flor idas Division of Administrative Hearings in Tallahassee under legislation that went into effect July 1. The new rules shift the burden of proof of environmental impact, or lack thereof, from the applicant to the challenger. However, the new rules left the door open for a disagreement about the number of rebuttals and witnesses allowed during the hearing. It was a disagreement the judge suggested would have to be resolved at the appellate level. Opening statements Despite the back and forth, both sides did give opening statements Monday and assistant utilities director Paul Lackem acher took the stand. The days proceed ings ended during Lackemachers crossexamination by Brian Bolves, represent ing the petitioners. Although no one argues Deer Point Lake will sufciently meet the potable wa ter demands of Bay County for many years to come, Kenneth Oertel, representing Bay County, outlined the possible dangers of an above-ground water source. In the 1970s, a train derailed in the area of the lake, releasing chlorine gas. Although the gas did not harm the water supply, trains that follow the same tracks carry chemicals that have the potential to cause such contamination, Lackemacher said. Storm surges from tropical storms or hurricanes also could breach the dam and cause saltwater intrusion that could put the reservoir out of commission. Dur ing Hurricane Opal, the reservoir was con taminated by saltwater and though levels never exceeded the standards for potable water, it took more than 20 days to ush the intrusion out, Lackemacher said. They have decided this risk is unac ceptable to Bay County utilities and its customers, Oertel said. Ofcials added that Bay County sup plies water for surrounding municipali ties, including two hospitals, two military installations and other entities whose op erations would be crucial in the event of an emergency. Though Bay County consistently has said the water supply would be used only in an emergency, such a stipulation is no where to be found in the permit applica tion, Bolves pointed out. The application only states water withdrawals would be limited to an average of 5 million gallons per day, not to exceed 30 million gallons for a length of more than 52 days. On cross-examination, Lackemacher said the 30 million gallons per day was based on his knowledge and experience and admitted he wanted to get every gal lon of water possible. Bay County has an average daily water usage of 24.5 million gallons per day with a peak of 40 million gallons per day, but Bolves pointed out the 30 million gallons per day permit request fails to factor out the potential for storm evacuations and the curtailing of nones sential water use as a means of curbing water demands. John Thomas, an attorney for Washing ton County, called the permit application an exercise in water banking and repre sented an attempt of Bay County to secure a water supply that could feed projected growth in the West Bay area, which was expected to grow much faster than it has to date. If a party is allowed to lock up the rights to water, it interferes with the right of other users that might come along lat er, Thomas said. The placement of the wells along the border ensures nearly all the adverse ef fects, including receding water levels at area lakes and the potential for sinkholes, would be almost exclusively in Washington County, Thomas said. The case is expected to last three weeks, and a public hearing tentatively has been scheduled Oct. 18 in Chipley.

Dear Editor: The political charges and claims are coming at us from all directions. It is now time to inject some truth, facts and reality into this storm of claims. However, we must factually dene democratic government as we know it. Our governments only function is protection for our physical selves, freedom, democracy, and economic justice. It provides a protective military, law enforcement, and regulations that protect our rights and economic security. Big government means big protections. Now we must dene freedom, as we know it. God given freedom is a common claim among us all, a true claim. However, the republicans claim that we have no freedoms except those that are given to us by some authority over us. The democrats go along with God given that we have all freedoms except that which has been prohibited or regulated by the people, collectively, through their representatives to our protective government. Now we must truthfully dene job which seems to be the center of our political conict right now. Newt Gingrich gave us that denition during the Tea Party gathering this week in Tampa. He said people create jobs, a very true and easily understandable statement. People are the consumers that drives our economy, and their demands for goods and services is what makes jobs possible. Entrepreneurs only take advantage of this demand for their prots. No one is going to sell any goods or services that the public does not want. So, now, let us do a little truth in politics. Small Government means small, or weak protection for us all. Government runs on taxes, and low taxes means weak, or small, government, weak or no protection for us all. The denition of job says that government and politicians cannot create jobs except where consumer demands are satised. Government jobs (employees) are necessary to provide the our protections of government, and government provided national infrastructure. Government cannot mandate that we buy goods that we do not want just so a capitalist can make prots. All of our laws (regulations) have been created with the good intention that they protect us and our way of life in some way. Less government quite factually is a plea to take away some or all of these protections. Now let us dene something else, anarchy. Anarchy is a condition of absolute freedom, without protection, every man for himself, individually and separately. The short path to tyranny as the meanest, strongest, and best organized simply walks in and creates dictatorship, unopposed by anyone except individuals. We can never allow this to happen in our society. It is a condition that existed and disappeared thousands of years ago, and must never be allowed to return. Totalitarian government, the product of anarchy, also must never be allowed to return. I know of no opponent of regulation that ever dened what regulation he is opposed to or how we the people will benet from the demise of any regulation. Let us make our political discourse honest, for the rst time. Freedom must not be wasted by lies. Charles W. Smith Bonifay cwssystems@centurylink.net Its politics time again LETTER TO THE EDITOR Its funny how things change. Fresh from summering on Marthas Vineyard, President Obama is now getting heat from blacks for the shocking increase in their unemployment under his policies. Then we have Dick Cheney promoting his book by showing up on every show on TV in a limo, with bodyguards and a posse, bragging about how he shot a man in the face and got away with it. Cheney might get the BET Rapper of the Year award while Obama is getting heat for not doing enough for blacks. What is interesting is how, under Obama, black unemployment hit a 27-year high last week. Even his loyal supporters are starting to get snippy. Just to add to what Jack Kennedy said, a rising tide does lift all boats, but conversely, when the tide goes out, it crushes those under the boat. We are all hurt by his governments policies of anti-business, increasing regulation and debtcraving controls. Instead of dividing black workers from white, Obama has resisted the temptation to overplay the race card. He is more of a class-envy card player. Just FYI, it aint so great in white America either. From what I can tell by watching TV, the only growing industry is redneck hand-fishing. At a loss for anything but spending money on unions and government jobs, Obama has no ability to reduce the African-American unemployment rate. Generally, when blacks got mad in the past, politicians would build them a Martin Luther King Jr. statue or name another street after MLK, and all was well. Not any more. Folks are no longer pacified by idle patronizing, which is a good thing. Maybe now we can have a non-racial discussion on how a growing economy helps us all. What can Obama do to help black male unemployment? There is nothing he can do except get out of the way. Yet he will not. Attorney General Eric Holder seems to want to sue businesses over anything; Holders DOJ seems to see race issues everywhere. They also love PC wordsmithing. The presidents smart phone is no longer a BlackBerry. Now its an African-AmericanBerry. Under Obamas watch, the U.S. bond rating has gone from AAA to AA. As any AA person will tell you, the first thing you have to do is admit you have problem in order to change your ways. Apparently Obama was not in step with the Twelve-Steppers when he gave his muchanticipated jobs speech, which was full of the same pork stimulus that failed the first time. The only good shovelready jobs were created by Texas Gov. Rick Perry when his state executed 235 murderers. If you wonder why the first stimulus never worked, look no further than this example. Our Homeland Security Department had an office in a town of 12 people on the Canadian border with Maine; it handled six cars a day. But that wasnt good enough. With at least $16 million in stimulus money, DHS is building a huge office in Forest City, Maine to handle the one car every four hours that crosses the border there. The Forest City office building is so nice that DHS also created several Homeland Security desk jobs there. They just hope the terrorists respect our honor system by taking the time to come into the office and check in when they enter the country illegally and dont forget to enjoy the free espresso and the nice lobby. The jobs bill that Obama is pushing like a used-car dealer trying to move some metal (Pass this bill now!) has more of the same. One CNBC analyst said he thought it would cost $230,000 to $400,000 for each $50,000 job created. At some point, even the most partisan politicians in Washington have to understand that good policies benefit us all. In reality, blacks have fared better under Republicans, pretty much from Abraham Lincoln on. We are all in this together and must help businesses in the U.S. grow and compete so we all can work to provide for our families.

American unemployment in black and white HART T ALK Ron Hart As a child, I heard my Aunt Annie (Anna Padgett Wells) talk about her cousin who was murdered near their home in the Leonia community of northwestern Holmes County on July 29, 1910. Aunt Annie was probably about 6 or 7 years old at the time. In her book, Heart and History of Holmes County with Glimpses of The Panhandle, she gives a full account of the death and subsequent lynching as reported in the Holmes County Advertiser Aug. 6, 1910. E.W. Carswells Holmesteading also gives an account of the event. The headlines read, AWFUL CRIME MEETS REWARD, BESSIE MAY MORRISON ASSAULTED AND MURDERED IN HOLMES COUNTY. THREE NEGROES WHO CONFESSED THE CRIME ARE SHOT TO DEATH. DETAILS UNPRINTABLE. A FOURTH NEGRO NARROWLY ESCAPES DEATH FOR COMPLICITY.... About 10 p.m. Friday night July, 29, 1910, a telephone message went to Sheriff Bell in Walton County to send blood hounds to assist in the search for the 12 year old daughter of Mrs. Gus Morrison who lived near the Leonia School. The child had left for school later than her siblings as she wasnt feeling well, but then decided to go on alone. At the end of the school day, when she failed to return home with the other children, the alarm sounded. Ethel Padgett, Aunt Annies sister writes her recollection of the events of that day. About 4 0clock, we looked out and saw Aunt Mary Morrison and her son coming in a run. (Mary was a sister to the Padgett childrens mother.) We knew something was wrong and went to meet them. Ethels father asked if she was seeing a boy friend since Bessie Mae was almost 13 and grownup looking for her age. The family living nearby had several boys in it and they checked there, but all the sons were accounted for. The Negros who turpentined the woods nearby were checked and were found to have only dipped a little gum that day. Their dip-buckets were found still in the woods. So all the community was alerted. Due to a whooping cough outbreak, families were attempting to keep their babies from contact with other to avoid spreading the contagion but as word spread about the disappearance of young Bessie, Aunt Marys beds were all lled with babies as the women stayed with her while the men joined the search. One elderly grandmother made a pallet on the oor, placed it full of sleeping babies and went to sleep on the bed. When the body of the girl was found the next day, it was in a pond covered with boards to weigh it down, but one hand was showing. Ethel writes in her account that Aunt Mary had a white bull dog with two brown spots. They noticed that he would go off for a time and then return shaking the water off. It is believed that he went into the water and pulled the timber off bessie is why her hand surfaced so that it could be seen. The Advertiser accounts tell that the searchers pursued the nding of the killer or killers with all vigor after the victim was found. A Black man named Tom Johnson was the rst arrested. He implicated a yellow man named Bunk, but upon separate questioning, Bunk also implicated Tom and another Negro whose name we dont have. They all confessed to the awful and unprintable details of the most atrocious crime ever committed in Florida. (Holmes County Advertiser) As soon and the three men were in the hands of the citizens, some one cut the telephone wires so that no law enforcement could be summoned to bring ofcial interference. And any person who was not easily recognized as part of the community was questioned, identied and gave a satisfactory account of himself before being allowed to the scene. After being sure no ofcers were present the leader of the crowd asked, is there any law enforcement ofcer present? If so please take charge of the prisoners. There was none. The three were then lined up and red upon by all guns present. In the Newspaper article, it was reported that there had been some trouble between Mrs. Morrison and one of the turpentine workers and he had been planning revenge ever since. They had lain in wait for her on at least one other occasion, but she had taken a different road. On this Friday, the three waited for the child, who they might have mistaken for her mother. Mr. Gus Morrison had died a violent death a few years earlier leaving his widow with seven small children, the oldest of whom was Bessie. The widow managed to rear her remaining children to adulthood without aid of Welfare or other public assistance.

By Meridith Kaufman Florida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY Local chefs are gathering to lend their support to Childrens Home Societys eighth annual Compassionate Chefs for Kids on Saturday, Sept. 24. Its a celebration for those 120 em ployees serving children and families who need us and a celebration of those being served, said Erica Spivey, CHS director of development. We wanted to gather all those who are supporters, volunteers, champions, cheerleaders, board members and donors who support us and help us to support the community. More than 20 chefs from the Panama City area will present their signature dish es. Some of the restaurants participating are Firey, Bonesh, Buccaneer, Uncle Ernies, Somethins Cookin and Trigo. The event will raise money and aware ness for Childrens Home Society because all of the proceeds benet their programs and work, said event chair and volunteer Krista Barker. But we also want everyone to have a great time because it is a fun event. Barker said she was moved by the work CHS does and became a volunteer and board member two years ago. I was just really touched by what they do for children and families, Barker said. I think if you donate to Childrens Home Society, you can feel good that your dona tion is going to help the most vulnerable in our society children. Throughout the evening, guests can en joy live entertainment by Mark Harris and Mojo Rising. Local children will be per forming, as well as the Fred Astaire danc ers. There will also be a testimony given by a family Childrens Home Society has helped during a difcult time. Though the event is a celebration, it is also a fundraising event. Organizers hope to raise more than $60,000 through spon sorships and ticket sales. Sixty-thousand dollars is amazing, but some of our programs cost $25,000 to oper ate a month, so we rely heavily on grants, Spivey said. And with the vulnerability go ing on with the Legislature, we just want to make sure we can sustain the programs. Compassionate Chefs for Kids will be $35 for general admission and $75 for VIP. It will be 6-9 p.m., starting at 5 p.m. for VIPs at the FSU PC Holley Academic Center. For more information, tickets or sponsor ships, contact Spivey at 747-5411. By Pat Kelly Florida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY One issue that has been giving some Airport Authority board members nightmares is nearing resolution. The Airport Authority board is close to turning the old airport in Panama City over to its new owners, a hurdle to the new airports successful future that board members have been struggling with for months. At issue is a $130,000 interest payment airport ofcials must make each month on state construction loans used to build the airport near West Bay, loans that will be paid off with the nal turnover of the old airport sale to the St. Andrew Bay Land Co. (SABLC), which is holding $56.5 million in escrow until the nal closing. Two of the last remaining stumbling blocks to a successful turnover are nal ly nearing completion, board Chairman Andy McKenzie said. We are edging closer and closer, I can tell you that. The Florida Department of Environ mental Protection recently sent a clear ance letter saying there were no remain ing environmental concerns at some ar eas of the 700-acre old airport site. That was good news for us, McKenzie said. Other areas still remain in question at the old facility and will determine the nal cleanup price that will be negotiated with the new owners once a 30-day notice to close is issued, board attorney Frank lin Harrison said. That notice should come within the next three to four weeks after repairs are completed to the sites passenger termi nal building, the last remaining obstacle to issuing the 30-day notice. That work is now under way and should be completed in the next three to four weeks, airport Executive Director John Wheat said. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in environmental credits are at stake in the nal purchase price, and the airport is testing sites for possible contamination in order to determine their size, Wheat said. Their size will determine how much in environmental credits the airport will receive, Wheat said. Once the 30-day notice is issued, the airport and SABLC can negotiate and nalize the level of environmental credits. Some board members had expressed concerns earlier this year that SABLC had hoped to delay closing until next year in order to get out of the sale. But Har rison said the airport and SABLC have been in constant contact over the last few weeks to evaluate the remaining environ mental areas in order to determine the level of environmental credits. It is an ongoing process, he said. The Northwest Florida Beaches Inter national Airport near West Bay ofcially opened on May 23, 2010. The environmental cleanup is essen tial because SABLC plans a village-type development for the old airport site that will include a mix of residential and multiuse building and open green spaces.

Landmark to demonstrate old-fashioned peanut harvesting Marianna driver license ofce to close Film stars honored at screening By Mona Moore Florida Freedom Newspapers EGLIN AFB First Lt. Julie Teffe teller reminded more than 300 peo ple who gathered at the Air Force Armament Museum last week to watch The Lost Airmen of Buch enwald just how lucky they were. Not only would they see the doc umentary for free, but they could speak to the director and three stars of the lm. The documentary tells the story of allied airmen in World War II who were sent to Buchenwald concen tration camp and were days away from being executed before they were spared. Their journey is so long and in teresting. And Buchenwald is only a part of it, Teffeteller said before the screening. I watched it twice. I think its a great lm, not only educational and inspirational, but entertaining. Ed Carter-Edwards, Don Shear er and Bluewater Bay resident El mer Clayton Freeman were three of the seven airmen who shared their stories with lmmaker Michael Dorsey, Freemans grandson. Freeman said his grandson did a wonderful job. It didnt overblow the thing but it got the misery and the feelings there. And the shots of Buchen wald, Ive got to admit they brought back bad memories, he said. Dorsey said the turnout for the screening was incredible. His grandfather was surprised by the response the lm has received. He told me he didnt know this many people were still interested in this, so its been a big revelation, Dorsey said. Carter-Edwards, who was in the Canadian Air Force, talked about his time in Buchenwalds inrmary. Doctors would tour the inrmary every day and point to the people who had been there for a while and did not appear to be recover ing quickly. Those people would be killed and cremated. Carter-Edwards survived be cause some of the people at the in rmary picked him up and moved him to a different bed to keep the doctors from noticing. Nightmares and visions of his parents kept him from giving up. Carter-Edwards paused and then said there might have been a con nection between his visions and his mothers prayers. She never gave up, he said.

Mayor James E. Sims, Jr. City of Bonifay ATTEST: City Clerk Jeri Gibson City of Bonifay By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chippleypaper.com TALLAHASSEE A new study by the Florida Commission on Hu man Relations, the states lead ing anti-discrimination agency, has found that the commission saved Florida businesses $60.7 million over the past ve years by preventing costly litigation in hun dreds of discrimination cases. The commissions mediation services produced outcomes that typically cost businesses 89 percent less than if the cases had ended up in court, gures show. The study reveals that the com mission (FCHR) provided Florida with an average return on invest ment of 144 percent over the past ve years. In other words, for ev ery $1 provided by taxpayers to fund FCHRs annual operations, the Commission returned an ad ditional $1.44 in benets to Florida businesses through avoided costs associated with discrimination lawsuits. Were extremely proud of the commissions record resolving cases that allege discrimination, said Interim Co-Director Michelle Wilson. While ensuring the rights of individuals is of paramount im portance, the less money and time a business has to spend defending itself in court, the more that busi ness can focus on creating jobs for Floridians. Over the span of the 200607 through 2010-11 scal years, FCHRs free mediation process helped individual complainants in 508 cases reach a mutually agree able resolution with those they had accused of illegal discrimination. During that same time period, FCHR issued no cause deter minations in 3,571 cases. Without FCHR closing these cases quickly, a portion of them likely would have gone to court and required busi nesses to incur attorney costs, court fees, investigative and depo sition expenses, and other courtrelated expenses even though the actual complaints may not have been substantiated. While the extensive savings from these no-cause ndings can not be rmly established, the me diation cases offer clear evidence of FCHRs value to the business sector: According to a 2006 analysis by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics, the average court-or dered damage award in discrimi nation cases was $134,125. Since mid-2006, the average settlement amount in cases suc cessfully mediated by FCHR is $14,527. Therefore, the average cost avoided per case resulting from FCHR mediation services is $119,598. This average savings multi plied by the number of successful mediations (508) equals $60,755,784, or an average of $12,151,156 per year. These gures do not include additional expenditures, such as attorney fees or court costs. Although average damage awards have likely risen signi cantly over the past ve years, FCHRs study reects a more con servative estimate based on the last documented federal study of discrimination case awards. Avoid ed court costs to businesses could in fact be substantially higher than what has been estimated by FCHR, but this cannot be deter mined conclusively. The study also establishes FCHRs return on investment for the taxpayers of Florida, based on the successful resolution of cases through mediation. Over the past ve scal years, the Legislature has appropriated just under $5 million per year, on average, for FCHRs entire annual budget. In the same period, businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.1 million per year in avoided costs. Thus businesses saved an additional $1.44 beyond each $1.00 spent to fund FCHR. Over the past ve scal years: The Legislature has appro priated, on average, $4.99 million per year for FCHR operations. Businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.15 million per year in avoided costs (as documented above). Return on Investment: 144% to taxpayers/businesses above the level of FCHR funding.

OUTD OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section & If I were going to let the grouper go their merry way and I wanted to catch some sh that didnt require burning up $1,000 in gas, I would go to St. Joe Bay. The reports from over there are sounding better and better. The water is as clear as a bell, and the redsh and speckled trout are starting to turn on after this last bout of bad weather. The only problem is which way the wind is going to blow. One day they are saying a front isnt going to come through and give us some cooler weather, and then the next thing you hear is it will be in the 60s. It might rain, and then again it might not. Dont worry about the temperature, worry about the direction of the wind. St. Joe Bay lies in a northsouth direction. If the wind blows from the east, it leaves you little choice but to sh the east side, which is not my favorite. If it blows from the west, you are in business. This will keep the west shore wave-free, and that means sight-shing for speckled trout will be very good. If the wind blows from the north, you might as well stay home and watch football because the entire bay will be messed up. To keep from burning a ton of gas, I recommend going to the state park on the west side of the bay and launching. Catch a livewell full of menhaden or choffers, and put someone on the poling platform or drop the electric motor. Just ease down the bank as slowly as possible and sight-sh for trout and redsh. Except for catching speckled trout on topwater, this form of shing for specks is one of the most exciting ways of shing for trout and reds. To actually see the sh, cast to it and then get it to bite is a blast. After you catch your rst one, you will feel like you know something no other sherman knows. The stump hole on the inside of the bay reportedly is full of redsh. A shallow-water boat is needed to sh this area because of the depth. A kayak would be better, but a shallow-riding ats boat also would do the trick if you go at high tide. Free line choffers or menhaden, and dont use any lead. Keep an eye on the wind, because this is a big body of water, and it can become extremely rough.

BAY BOATS By Frank Sargeant franksargeant@bellsouth.net To be sure, no one boat will do it all, but one style comes close. For anglers who sh both the shallows of coastal bays and the green water off the beaches, its hard to beat the vessel that has become known as the bay boat. These are center-console rigs from 17 to 24 feet long; theyre considerably larger than the classic ats boat, which maxes out at 17 feet in most versions, but not nearly as large as most offshore boats, which typically are 24 feet and up. But bay boats have design features other than length that make them so versatile. For one thing, they sport a shallow vee bottom. Combined with relatively light weight, this allows them to run in very shallow water. Though they wont quite match the ankle-deep capability of some ultra-light ats rigs, most bay boats will easily run in just 18 inches of water and can be poled in as little as 12 inches. That means they can do a good job in the pursuit of ats species such as redsh, often found in water less than knee-deep. Bay boats also boast a longer running surface and higher freeboard (distance between the waterline and the gunwale) than ats rigs, which makes them more capable of delivering a smoother, drier ride in rough water. Most ats boats will beat your brains out in a foot-tall chop, but a bay boat with the bow trimmed down can handle three-footers. In good weather with a competent skipper, they can readily take on Panhandle inlets, allowing anglers to get offshore to sh for cobia, kings, Spanish and reef species. The larger size of bay boats also means you can carry a sizable crew families of two adults and three kids t nicely into a 21-footer, while three is denitely a crowd in any ats boat. And the broad beam of most bay rigs allows safe installation of a tower, a great spot from which to look for cobia or tarpon cruising at the surface. Many bay boats also are rigged with hard tops, providing shade at the helm and overhead space for a radio box and life preservers. Bay boats typically weigh between 1,500 and 2,500 pounds, which means they run nicely on a single outboard as small as 150 horses. Particularly with four-strokes or HPDI two-strokes, fuel economy is very good. The light weight also means an electric trolling motor mounted on the bow makes these boats very easy to maneuver when youre sneaking up on sh. Casting decks bow and stern offer lots of space to swing a rod, and all have lots of storage in water-resistant compartments below the decks. Trailering boats in this weight class is not a problem for any medium to fullsized truck with a frame hitch. Theres no need for giant V8-powered tow vehicles and weight-distributing hitches, which are required in towing a big offshore rig. If your interests are more in chasing billsh, dolphin, wahoo and tuna, the bay boat is not for you you need a big, deep, twin-engined offshore rig, and that will cost you plenty. Fortunately, in the Panhandle, there are hundreds of offshore charter boats that can take you out for less than the cost of a monthly payment on an offshore rig and also save you all the maintenance headaches. Unless youre absolutely rabid about shing blue water and have bushels of money to boot its better to rent time aboard a charter instead of having that six-digit monster depreciating in your driveway. A lot of bay boat companies have come and gone in the last few years. My favorite builder for both economy and quality, Sea Pro, sank without a ripple a few years back, but a lot of good used Sea Pros still are around. Many other familiar names still are in business; Ranger, Skeeter, Triton and others build high-end rigs, while Mako available at Tracker/Bass Pro Shops in Destin and Hydra-Sports are medium-priced alternatives. Good used bay boats can be owned for about $15,000, while premium brands new can cost more than $75,000. FRA N K S ARGEA N T | Special to Florida Freedom Above, bay boats like this Ranger are a Panhandle favorite, with shallow draft that allows ats access plus enough length, beam and vee to handle moderate offshore duties in good weather. Renting: an economy angle for the casual boater By Frank Sargeant franksargeant@bellsouth.net The Freedom Boat Club offers a way of having an assortment of boats ready to use at a price thats well under the typical monthly payment for owning a boat. Brian Gwinnup, owner of the Freedom franchise at Bluewater Bay, Destin, said year-round, go-anytime membership is $249 a month, and economy memberships that allow use except on summer weekends are just $200. The club requires a one-time $4,900 membership fee to join. We fuel the boat, put it in the water for you and clean it up, Gwinnup said. You just load your crew and gear and go. He said the eet at his facility includes a 25-foot offshore boat with twin outboards, a 21-foot bay boat, a deck boat, a 19-foot center console and a sailboat. Gwinnup said an online reservation system allows boaters to reserve boats in advance, but its also possible to call up and get an immediate slot if boats are vacant. Were open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in summer, and if anglers want to go out at daybreak, well get them set with the boat the night before, he said. When anglers bring the boat back to the dock, its refueled at the users expense. Its then cleaned and put in dry storage, ready for the next trip. You dont have to worry about insurance, theft, any of those ownership issues, Gwinnup said. There also are franchises at Niceville, Gulf Breeze and 57 other coastal locations around the eastern U.S. For details, visit www.freedomboat club.com. Page 8 Wednesday, September 21, 2011

By BRAD MILNER Florida Freedom Newspapers CHIPLEY Chipleys Jor dan McKinney scored with six minutes remaining and the Tigers defense stopped Bratt Northview on fourth down to seal a 34-27 high school football victory on Friday. The game featured two of the favorites in the new Ru ral classication, as the Tigers improved to 3-0 on the season. Kobe McCrary scored three touchdowns for Chi pley, which held a 22-19 lead at the half and never trailed. McCrary scored on a 45-yard pass from Josh Myers in the rst quar ter and added TD runs of 25 and 3 yards. James Voorhees added a 79-yard kickoff return for a TD for Chipley. McKinney went in from 25 yards to give Chipley the deciding margin. North view (1-1) drove past the Tigers 30-yard line and was stopped yards short on fourth down. The two teams are in separate regions in the Rural classication. If they met in the playoffs it would be in the state seminal. That would be where Chipley and coach Rob Armstrong want to be, but he said theres more work to be done before any dreams of the Final Four can be realized. It was a big win be cause it was two good football teams and this is a gauge for where we are at this time of the season, Armstrong said. But were only three weeks into the season, we havent started district play yes and thats about all that it means. Im real proud of the kids and the coaches and we played well offensively and defensively. They (North view) are a well-coached team, played hard and have great football players, It was a heckuva game. Chipley is at Marianna next week in another nondistrict game. By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Confronted with an 18-0 decit as the rst quarter came to an end, the Holmes County High School Blue Devils (now 3-0) proved unstoppable for the remainder of the game. The team racked up 27 unanswered points to squelch the Baker High School Gators 28-18. The Devils romped behind a surprisingly ver satile quarterback in 11, Ethan Russ, and his un stoppable brother, 7, of fensive runningback Cody Russ for their third victory in as many outings. Cody Russ was the most ver satile player of the game, providing service on of fense, defense and special teams, where he served as kicker. In fact, for three Devil touchdowns he both made the touchdown run and point after kick. The lightning quick Number 7 proved virtually unstoppa ble to the Gator defense for much of the evening. The Blue Devil effort in cluded two goal line stands against Baker on the night, holding their rivals out of the end zone on both. Blue Devil Head Coach Brad Johnson credited the early decit to crucial pen alty calls and reigned in his team who drew only three adverse calls for the nal three periods of play. Its game time now, crooned Ethan Russ after the Blue Devils second touchdown of the night in the second quarter just be fore the haltime whistles blew. The Gators were not so fortunate in penalties, drawing back-to-back hold ing calls on offense and three delay of game calls on the night. By JASON SHOOT Florida Freedom Newspapers VERNON Bozemans defense redeemed itself when it needed to, and place-kicker Jordan Burns took care of the rest. Burns booted a 26-yard eld goal in overtime to lift the Bucks to a 17-14 victory over Vernon in a non-district football game Friday night. Vernon quarterback Hunter Dobbs reeled off a 47-yard touchdown run with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter and then scored on a two-point con version to tie the game and send it into overtime. Bozemans defense bounced back with an impressive showing in overtime, preventing the Yellow Jackets (1-2) from gaining positive yardage on any of their four plays in the extra session. With the ball placed in the middle of the hash marks at the 10-yard line, Bucks coach Loren Till man sent Burns out to kick the game-winner. The attempt split the uprights, and Bozemans players rushed the eld to cel ebrate their hard-fought victory. He did very good, Bozeman quarterback Jacob Martinez said of Burns. The coaches made a great call. Jordan did it. Martinez engineered an eight-play, 60-yard drive in the rst quarter. Marti nez broke loose on a 21yard scramble on fourthand-4 to move the ball to Vernons 15, and two plays later located Tommy Cook in the end zone on a 15yard touchdown pass for a 7-6 lead 10 seconds into the second quarter. Martinez compiled 81 rushing yards and another 80 passing to power the Bucks. Bozeman totaled 252 yards as a team. We put points on the board (early) and it gave me condence, Martinez said. The Bucks (2-1) seem ingly put the game away late in the fourth quarter with Daniel Taylors 2yard plunge into the end zone with 2:23 remain ing. That play capped an 11-play drive that began at Bozemans 35. Taylor nearly fumbled away pos session at Vernons 4, but he bounced back two plays later running off tackle to the right and diving over the goal line. Vernons top play maker on offense, senior tailback Shaquille Powell, watched the game from the sidelines with a sling securing his right arm. Powell injured his shoul der last week against Wewahitchka. The Yellow Jackets didnt appear to need him initially. On the second play from scrimmage, Dobbs rolled out to his right before heaving a strike downeld to Julian Silas that turned into a 76-yard touchdown and a quick 6-0 lead. Vernon attempted a two-point conversion, but JQ Leverette was tackled before reaching the goal line. That Dobbs kid is a great player, Tillman said. He made plays all over the eld. Powells absence was more noticeable as the game progressed. Vernon could have used his break away speed as its offense bogged down in the rst half. After their big play, the Yellow Jackets com piled just 54 more yards before halftime. Bozemans defense con tinued to corral Vernons defense in the second half. The Yellow Jackets gained only 12 yards on offense in the third quarter, and they didnt register a rst down after halftime until the fourth quarter. Dobbs nished with 170 total yards for Vernon.

Local A10 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, September 21, 2011 By Elaine Sanchez American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON Several months ago, the producers of ABCs Extreme Makeover: Home Edition asked me to spread the word about their search for people involved in the military to feature on the shows upcoming season. They got a huge response and selected an exceptional Navy veteran for a home makeover. A few months ago, I traveled to Fayetteville, N.C., to watch hundreds of volunteers build Barbara Marshall a new 5,000square-foot home. The threestory home, dubbed the Jubilee House, serves as a shelter and resource center for homeless female veterans. This episode, which also features a special visit by First Lady Michelle Obama, will kick off the shows ninth season Sept. 25. With that episode ready to air, the shows producers once again are seeking people involved with the military to feature in upcoming episodes. The producers are looking for people with amazing strength of character and who put their own needs aside to help others, they said in a news release. Whether its a soldier, a mom, a teacher or a reman, we think deserving families are families who inspire those around them. Additionally, the shows producers are seeking families whose houses need major alterations or repair homes that present serious problems for the family and affect the familys quality of life. To be eligible, families must own their single-family home and be able to demonstrate how a makeover will make a difference in their lives. Rather than apply through the normal channels, interested military families or people who wish to nomi-nate a military family can email a short description of the familys story directly to Jackie Topacio, casting producer, at jax@emhe. tv. Jackie told me she wants to make sure she reads every story submitted. Please dont wait to apply; the deadline for nominations is Sept. 29. The email should include the names and ages of household members, a description of the familys challenges, an explanation of why the family is deserving of a makeover or is a positive role model in the community, photos of the family and their home, and contact numbers. For more information on the application process, visit abc. go.com/primetime/xtremehome/ index?pn=apply. Please pass this information on to deserving military families.

B5 Classieds ............................ B7 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, SEP T EMBER 21 2011 B PA GE 1 Section School News B3 Birthdays B2 Faith Events B4 By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com Singer and songwriter Jon McLaughlin made his debut back into music, after dedicating a song to his cousin that died in the April 20, 2010, explosion of Deepwater Horizon. The song is now #1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Album and Song Charts and Top 20 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart for his new album Forever If Never. The last song on the album is called These Crazy Times, which I wrote shortly after my cousin died on the oil rig, said McLaughlin. Its about what happened with the oil spill and whats going on with the economy; its mainly a song written in frustrating times when things are not moving as fast as wed like them; unfortunately I think its a song that people can relate with. He currently holds the number one spot for his track, Maybe Its Over, making this the third album in a row to hit top single on the charts. Additional tracks from Forever if Ever also are located on the Top 20, including Ill Follow You at #5 and If Only I at #9 and My Girl Tonight at #20. McLaughlin is starting a 3-month, 40 city tour on September 27th, which will run through the end of the year. A private link for media to preview the album is available here: soundcloud.com/ user8796451/sets/jonmclaughlin-forever-if-ever/ s-ppBQO McLaughlin also was in a recent Disney lm, Enchanted, lmed in a ballroom scene singing So Close. I was on my way back home when a woman that worked with my record company asked me if Id like to sing a song for a Disney movie, said McLaughlin. I grew up watching Disney movies, so I was excited and told them I would, and before I knew it, they went from me just recording the song to me being in the movie. He said he got a real glimpse into what it takes to make a movie. We were lming the ballroom scene in a warehouse and I must say Ive got a new respect for those who make movies because we were in that warehouse for weeks doing that same scene over and over, said McLaughlin. Each scene became harder and harder because theyd drop this glitter from the ceiling and to redo the scene theyd have to clean up the glitter and do it again; it was a lot of hard work, but it was also a lot of fun. McLaughlin said he grew up playing the piano and listening to music by Elton John and Billy Joel. Its funny how life works, said McLaughlin. My career that has been lled with critical acclaim and success that has taken me up the charts, to the Oscars, into the studio with fellow artists like Jason Mraz, and on the road with Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, and Marc Broussard. He said that hes had four years, two albums, hit singles like Beautiful Disaster and an Academy Award performance that brought him to an unlikely crossroads when it came time to record a new disc. I wanted to write songs, and I wanted them to be my own, said McLaughlin. Ive been very grateful for the brilliant songwriters that my label had paired me with while making 2007s Indiana and OK Now (2008), but I missed the connection I felt when singing lyrics from my own soul. McLaughlin chose to part ways with Island Records and got back to writing solo. I just wanted to take a year or two to just write and thats what I did, he said. Then after a year I went back to looking for a label, but with the economy the way it was no one was looking for an artist. He said that didnt get him down and he encouraged his band to get together and record an album on their own. Our band recorded on our own and what we thought was just going to be a demo ended up being a whole record recorded in my house because we got so excited about the music, McLaughlin said. And thats how we got Forever if Never. McLaughlin said he was grateful to be managing his own music because now he could get back to the style of music he felt connected with. Ive always seemed to be drawn to love songs, he said. Those heartbreaking songs are what I think does the most for peoples emotions, whether it be a love song or a good song about heartbreak; you want a song to connect with your emotions. He said his inspiration comes from just living from day to day. It always seems like Im looking back and seeing that things were not as bad as they seemed, he said. Like when I was in college and stressing out about having no time; now I look back with my career as it is now and think that I had way more time at that time then now. He said it was like catching on to a pattern. I think that Ive gained a little more foresight and learned to relax a lot more, said McLaughlin. Because I dont want to miss a single moment because Im too wrapped up in stressing over the little things.

Total construction cost is estimated to be $4,682,400. Of that amount $3,848,464 will be in the form of a grant and the balance will be a low interest State of Florida Revolving Fund loan. This 82-percent grant is the largest ever received by the City and is among the had full of projects selected at this time for principal forgiveness grant funding. Because the City has escrow funds already available for DEP Revolving Loan repayment, this major improvement to the Citys wastewater system will be able to be constructed without any additional nancial impact on the Citys residences and businesses. Mayor James E. Sims, Jr. and the members of the City Council have been working hard on a major improvement program for the Citys Water and Sewer systems for the past three years, according to city staff. The ofcials have been successful in obtaining more than $4 million in additional grant funding for Phase 1 of the I&I program which was recently completed. A new 500 gallon per minute water well and new water lines connecting that well to the hospital and DOC facility South of Interstate 10 has been completed. In addition, a major wastewater treatment plant renovation project has been designed and is anticipated to go out for bids in late September. These projects have been designed by Amir Zafar, Project Engineer for Hatch Mott McDonald Engineers and administered by Bob Jones, City Grant Administrator. The new I&I Phase 2 and Pumping Station Improvement project is anticipated to be under construction shortly after the rst of the year.By Steve LinerManaging Editor sliner@bonifaynow.com Bonifay Middle School students were treated to a SWAT assembly Wednesday, Sept. 14.

In real life terms, there was virtually no change, according to ofcials at the Florida Department of Workforce Innovation who pointed out numbers of unemployed workforce members remained almost totally unchanged. There was an increase of 12 jobs in the retail sector, indicating a hint of better days to come. The countys workforce dropped 24 gures show that as prospective employees leave the job market, locals will seek work elsewhere. Neighboring Washington County had an August unemployment rate of 11 percent, down from 11.2 percent in July. The statewide rate dropped last month by one tenth of a percent to 10.9, leading Gov. Rick Scott to say, The August job numbers prove that when you reduce the size, scope and cost of government, it allows the private sector jobs to grow. For every job lost in the public sector, Florida gained two jobs in the private sector. There is still a long road ahead, but by removing the red tape that restricts economic development we are on the right path to getting Florida back to work. The addition of more than 71,000 jobs since the beginning of the year is positive news for all Floridians and businesses and is a potent reminder that by making tough choices, we are doing the right things to turn the economy around. Holmes County accounts for 32 of those jobs.By Felicia KitzmillerFlorida Freedom NewspapersP P ANAMMA CITTY Stanley Porter said he was grateful to be the rst customer speaker at the Florida Public Service Commissions hearing on Gulf Powers proposed rate increase Thursday night. The dry cleaning and laundry business owner had to rush back to work to prepare some uniforms for a morning pick up. He and his employees were working into the night because they have found they use 38 percent less electricity if they can do most of their cleaning after sunset. Last year, the Cottondale resident who operates his business in Bonifay, said he paid $19,000 to Gulf Power in utility costs. At the current electricity prices, he struggled nancially and closed a location in Chipley, laying off two employees. If Gulf Power is granted the base rate increase it has requested that would increase power bills by $12.15 for every 1,000 kilowatt hours used. Porter said he and the utility companys other 428,000 customers will face some very difcult decisions. Its virtually impossible to see how my little operation in Bonifay ... how were going to survive, he said. The money is just not there in America today to do what Gulf Power is asking us to do. When Gulf Power led to raise rates this summer, they cited huge increases in the cost of doing business since the last time they raised their base rate in 2002. The base rate is used to fund the daily operations of the company including poles, wires, customer service locations and repair costs. Power bills have gone up since the last time the base rate increased, but it was largely a result of increases in the cost of fuel, which Gulf Power passes along to its customers at cost, spokesperson Jeff Rogers said. But consumers are facing the same rising costs, customer after customer pointed out at the public hearing in the main ballroom of Holiday Inn Select on Martin Luther King Boulevard. Joyce Fox said she hasnt had a raise in three years, and she has to cope with climbing prices too. Every time we are about to make ends meet, someone moves the end, she said. An interim rate increase of $38.5 million, $4.49 per month for the typical user, went into effect in August, but the Public Service Commission still has to make a ruling on the increase in its entirety. If it is rejected, the interim increase would have to be refunded to customers with interest, public counsel J.R. Kelly said. Kelly, who is employed by the state to represent the rate payers in utility issues, said he will be ghting against the increase and has discovered several items he will object to in court. For instance, he said, the increase would move the utility companys prot margin from 6 percent to 11 percent, an amount Kelly called entirely excessive in the current economy; a huge increase to the storm damage reserve fund; and the amassing of $27 million for the possible construction of a nuclear power plant some time in the future. Gulf Power has made returns to its shareholders every year, utility spokeswoman Sandy Sims said. To ensure continued interest in the stock, Gulf Power is under pressure to continue providing high returns. If returns diminish and interest in the stock declines, Sims said customers will have to shoulder more of the cost of providing electricity.City sewer selected for grantsS PEcia CIA L To O TiTI MEs S -Adv DV ERTis IS ERStudents gather for a special assembly about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, September 21, 2011Officials: F-22 to resume flightsBy Randal YakeyFlorida Freedom Newspapers TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE After more than fourand-a-half months of be ing grounded, the F-22 Raptor once again will take to the skies. Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley and Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz on Monday announced an im plementation plan devel oped by Air Combat Com mand ofcials that will allow the F-22 Raptor to resume ight operations, according to Air Combat Command ofcials. We now have enough insight from recent stud ies and investigations that a return to ight is prudent and appropriate, Schwartz wrote in a news release Monday. Were managing the risks with our aircrews, and were continuing to study the F22s oxygen systems and collect data to improve its performance. Air Combat Command ofcials said they devel oped a comprehensive incremental return-to-y plan that balances safety and the expedient quali cation of pilots against the inherent risks of ying advanced combat aircraft, ofcials said. Neither the Air Force nor Lockheed Martin have said much during the past few months other than they were investigating the problem. The problem with the F-22 oxygen system came to light in Novem ber when an F-22 crashed just outside Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, killing the pilot, Capt. Jeff Haney. Air Force ofcials briey halted F-22 ghts out of Elmendorf after the crash. The Air Force con rmed a parallel investi gation of the on-board ox ygen systems of the A-10, F-15E, F-16, F-35 and T-6 aircraft, none of which y out of Tyndall. Tyndall Air Force Base ofcials said other aircraft continue to y to and from the base. Raptor sorties had been restricted to an altitude of 25,000 feet or below for training missions because of the oxygen system mal functions, according to Air Force ofcials. Tyndall Air Force Base is the home of the 325th Fighter Wing, whose primary mission is to provide air train ing for F-22 Raptor pilots, as well as maintenance personnel and air battle managers. Training for F-22 pilots is performed in the 43rd Fighter Squadron at Tyn dall. The 325th Air Control Squadron trains air battle managers for assignment to combat Air Force units. Tyndall and other lo cal military ofcials could not be reached for comment Monday night.From Staff ReportsModern Tech Squad CEO Scott Watkins re cently testied before the House Small Business Committee during a hear ing titled Innovative Ap proaches to Meeting the Workforce Needs of Small Businesses.

Bay Countys application for 10 potable water wells to be drilled along the Washington County border is being challenged by Washington County, the Knight family trust and pro se petitioners James Murphy and Lee Lapenshon. According to Bay County ofcials, the wells are necessary as a backup water supply if Deer Point Lake somehow was contaminated, which is possible in the event of saltwater intrusion from a hurricane or chemical spills, either from the road over the dam or from nearby train tracks. The opponents have argued Bay County has not demonstrated sufcient need for the wells they fear would draw down the groundwater supply along with the Floridan Aquifer, damaging the environment and decreasing property values. The case is the rst to be heard at Floridas Division of Administrative Hearings in Tallahassee under legislation that went into effect July 1. The new rules shift the burden of proof of environmental impact, or lack thereof, from the applicant to the challenger. However, the new rules left the door open for a disagreement about the number of rebuttals and witnesses allowed during the hearing. It was a disagreement the judge suggested would have to be resolved at the appellate level. Opening statementsDespite the back and forth, both sides did give opening statements Monday and assistant utilities director Paul Lackemacher took the stand. The days proceedings ended during Lackemachers crossexamination by Brian Bolves, representing the petitioners. Although no one argues Deer Point Lake will sufciently meet the potable water demands of Bay County for many years to come, Kenneth Oertel, representing Bay County, outlined the possible dangers of an above-ground water source. In the 1970s, a train derailed in the area of the lake, releasing chlorine gas. Although the gas did not harm the water supply, trains that follow the same tracks carry chemicals that have the potential to cause such contamination, Lackemacher said. Storm surges from tropical storms or hurricanes also could breach the dam and cause saltwater intrusion that could put the reservoir out of commission. During Hurricane Opal, the reservoir was contaminated by saltwater and though levels never exceeded the standards for potable water, it took more than 20 days to ush the intrusion out, Lackemacher said. They have decided this risk is unacceptable to Bay County utilities and its customers, Oertel said. Ofcials added that Bay County supplies water for surrounding municipalities, including two hospitals, two military installations and other entities whose operations would be crucial in the event of an emergency. Though Bay County consistently has said the water supply would be used only in an emergency, such a stipulation is nowhere to be found in the permit application, Bolves pointed out. The application only states water withdrawals would be limited to an average of 5 million gallons per day, not to exceed 30 million gallons for a length of more than 52 days. On cross-examination, Lackemacher said the 30 million gallons per day was based on his knowledge and experience and admitted he wanted to get every gallon of water possible. Bay County has an average daily water usage of 24.5 million gallons per day with a peak of 40 million gallons per day, but Bolves pointed out the 30 million gallons per day permit request fails to factor out the potential for storm evacuations and the curtailing of nonessential water use as a means of curbing water demands. John Thomas, an attorney for Washington County, called the permit application an exercise in water banking and represented an attempt of Bay County to secure a water supply that could feed projected growth in the West Bay area, which was expected to grow much faster than it has to date. If a party is allowed to lock up the rights to water, it interferes with the right of other users that might come along later, Thomas said. The placement of the wells along the border ensures nearly all the adverse effects, including receding water levels at area lakes and the potential for sinkholes, would be almost exclusively in Washington County, Thomas said. The case is expected to last three weeks, and a public hearing tentatively has been scheduled Oct. 18 in Chipley.

It is now time to inject some truth, facts and reality into this storm of claims. However, we must factually dene democratic government as we know it. Our governments only function is protection for our physical selves, freedom, democracy, and economic justice. It provides a protective military, law enforcement, and regulations that protect our rights and economic security. Big government means big protections. Now we must dene freedom, as we know it. God given freedom is a common claim among us all, a true claim. However, the republicans claim that we have no freedoms except those that are given to us by some authority over us. The democrats go along with God given that we have all freedoms except that which has been prohibited or regulated by the people, collectively, through their representatives to our protective government. Now we must truthfully dene job which seems to be the center of our political conict right now. Newt Gingrich gave us that denition during the Tea Party gathering this week in Tampa. He said people create jobs, a very true and easily understandable statement. People are the consumers that drives our economy, and their demands for goods and services is what makes jobs possible. Entrepreneurs only take advantage of this demand for their prots. No one is going to sell any goods or services that the public does not want. So, now, let us do a little truth in politics. Small Government means small, or weak protection for us all. Government runs on taxes, and low taxes means weak, or small, government, weak or no protection for us all. The denition of job says that government and politicians cannot create jobs except where consumer demands are satised. Government jobs (employees) are necessary to provide the our protections of government, and government provided national infrastructure. Government cannot mandate that we buy goods that we do not want just so a capitalist can make prots. All of our laws (regulations) have been created with the good intention that they protect us and our way of life in some way. Less government quite factually is a plea to take away some or all of these protections. Now let us dene something else, anarchy. Anarchy is a condition of absolute freedom, without protection, every man for himself, individually and separately. The short path to tyranny as the meanest, strongest, and best organized simply walks in and creates dictatorship, unopposed by anyone except individuals. We can never allow this to happen in our society. It is a condition that existed and disappeared thousands of years ago, and must never be allowed to return. Totalitarian government, the product of anarchy, also must never be allowed to return. I know of no opponent of regulation that ever dened what regulation he is opposed to or how we the people will benet from the demise of any regulation. Let us make our political discourse honest, for the rst time. Freedom must not be wasted by lies.Charles W. SmithBonifay cwssystems@centurylink.netIts politics time again LETTER TO THE EDITORIts funny how things change. Fresh from summering on Marthas Vineyard, President Obama is now getting heat from blacks for the shocking increase in their unemployment under his policies. Then we have Dick Cheney promoting his book by showing up on every show on TV in a limo, with bodyguards and a posse, bragging about how he shot a man in the face and got away with it. Cheney might get the BET Rapper of the Year award while Obama is getting heat for not doing enough for blacks. What is interesting is how, under Obama, black unemployment hit a 27-year high last week. Even his loyal supporters are starting to get snippy. Just to add to what Jack Kennedy said, a rising tide does lift all boats, but conversely, when the tide goes out, it crushes those under the boat. We are all hurt by his governments policies of anti-business, increasing regulation and debtcraving controls. Instead of dividing black workers from white, Obama has resisted the temptation to overplay the race card. He is more of a class-envy card player. Just FYI, it aint so great in white America either. From what I can tell by watching TV, the only growing industry is redneck hand-fishing. At a loss for anything but spending money on unions and government jobs, Obama has no ability to reduce the African-American unemployment rate. Generally, when blacks got mad in the past, politicians would build them a Martin Luther King Jr. statue or name another street after MLK, and all was well. Not any more. Folks are no longer pacified by idle patronizing, which is a good thing. Maybe now we can have a non-racial discussion on how a growing economy helps us all. What can Obama do to help black male unemployment? There is nothing he can do except get out of the way. Yet he will not. Attorney General Eric Holder seems to want to sue businesses over anything; Holders DOJ seems to see race issues everywhere. They also love PC wordsmithing. The presidents smart phone is no longer a BlackBerry. Now its an African-AmericanBerry. Under Obamas watch, the U.S. bond rating has gone from AAA to AA. As any AA person will tell you, the first thing you have to do is admit you have problem in order to change your ways. Apparently Obama was not in step with the Twelve-Steppers when he gave his muchanticipated jobs speech, which was full of the same pork stimulus that failed the first time. The only good shovelready jobs were created by Texas Gov. Rick Perry when his state executed 235 murderers. If you wonder why the first stimulus never worked, look no further than this example. Our Homeland Security Department had an office in a town of 12 people on the Canadian border with Maine; it handled six cars a day. But that wasnt good enough. With at least $16 million in stimulus money, DHS is building a huge office in Forest City, Maine to handle the one car every four hours that crosses the border there. The Forest City office building is so nice that DHS also created several Homeland Security desk jobs there. They just hope the terrorists respect our honor system by taking the time to come into the office and check in when they enter the country illegally and dont forget to enjoy the free espresso and the nice lobby. The jobs bill that Obama is pushing like a used-car dealer trying to move some metal (Pass this bill now!) has more of the same. One CNBC analyst said he thought it would cost $230,000 to $400,000 for each $50,000 job created. At some point, even the most partisan politicians in Washington have to understand that good policies benefit us all. In reality, blacks have fared better under Republicans, pretty much from Abraham Lincoln on. We are all in this together and must help businesses in the U.S. grow and compete so we all can work to provide for our families.

He can be reached at Ron@ RonaldHart.com or visit www.RonaldHart.com.American unemployment in black and white HHARTRT TT ALLK Ron Hart As a child, I heard my Aunt Annie (Anna Padgett Wells) talk about her cousin who was murdered near their home in the Leonia community of northwestern Holmes County on July 29, 1910. Aunt Annie was probably about 6 or 7 years old at the time. In her book, Heart and History of Holmes County with Glimpses of The Panhandle, she gives a full account of the death and subsequent lynching as reported in the Holmes County Advertiser Aug. 6, 1910. E.W. Carswells Holmesteading also gives an account of the event. The headlines read, AWFUL CRIME MEETS REWARD, BESSIE MAY MORRISON ASSAULTED AND MURDERED IN HOLMES COUNTY. THREE NEGROES WHO CONFESSED THE CRIME ARE SHOT TO DEATH. DETAILS UNPRINTABLE. A FOURTH NEGRO NARROWLY ESCAPES DEATH FOR COMPLICITY.... About 10 p.m. Friday night July, 29, 1910, a telephone message went to Sheriff Bell in Walton County to send blood hounds to assist in the search for the 12 year old daughter of Mrs. Gus Morrison who lived near the Leonia School. The child had left for school later than her siblings as she wasnt feeling well, but then decided to go on alone. At the end of the school day, when she failed to return home with the other children, the alarm sounded. Ethel Padgett, Aunt Annies sister writes her recollection of the events of that day. About 4 0clock, we looked out and saw Aunt Mary Morrison and her son coming in a run. (Mary was a sister to the Padgett childrens mother.) We knew something was wrong and went to meet them. Ethels father asked if she was seeing a boy friend since Bessie Mae was almost 13 and grownup looking for her age. The family living nearby had several boys in it and they checked there, but all the sons were accounted for. The Negros who turpentined the woods nearby were checked and were found to have only dipped a little gum that day. Their dip-buckets were found still in the woods. So all the community was alerted. Due to a whooping cough outbreak, families were attempting to keep their babies from contact with other to avoid spreading the contagion but as word spread about the disappearance of young Bessie, Aunt Marys beds were all lled with babies as the women stayed with her while the men joined the search. One elderly grandmother made a pallet on the oor, placed it full of sleeping babies and went to sleep on the bed. When the body of the girl was found the next day, it was in a pond covered with boards to weigh it down, but one hand was showing. Ethel writes in her account that Aunt Mary had a white bull dog with two brown spots. They noticed that he would go off for a time and then return shaking the water off. It is believed that he went into the water and pulled the timber off bessie is why her hand surfaced so that it could be seen. The Advertiser accounts tell that the searchers pursued the nding of the killer or killers with all vigor after the victim was found. A Black man named Tom Johnson was the rst arrested. He implicated a yellow man named Bunk, but upon separate questioning, Bunk also implicated Tom and another Negro whose name we dont have. They all confessed to the awful and unprintable details of the most atrocious crime ever committed in Florida. (Holmes County Advertiser) As soon and the three men were in the hands of the citizens, some one cut the telephone wires so that no law enforcement could be summoned to bring ofcial interference. And any person who was not easily recognized as part of the community was questioned, identied and gave a satisfactory account of himself before being allowed to the scene. After being sure no ofcers were present the leader of the crowd asked, is there any law enforcement ofcer present? If so please take charge of the prisoners. There was none. The three were then lined up and red upon by all guns present. In the Newspaper article, it was reported that there had been some trouble between Mrs. Morrison and one of the turpentine workers and he had been planning revenge ever since. They had lain in wait for her on at least one other occasion, but she had taken a different road. On this Friday, the three waited for the child, who they might have mistaken for her mother. Mr. Gus Morrison had died a violent death a few years earlier leaving his widow with seven small children, the oldest of whom was Bessie. The widow managed to rear her remaining children to adulthood without aid of Welfare or other public assistance.

By Meridith KaufmanFlorida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY Local chefs are gathering to lend their support to Childrens Home Societys eighth annual Compassionate Chefs for Kids on Saturday, Sept. 24. Its a celebration for those 120 em ployees serving children and families who need us and a celebration of those being served, said Erica Spivey, CHS director of development. We wanted to gather all those who are supporters, volunteers, champions, cheerleaders, board members and donors who support us and help us to support the community. More than 20 chefs from the Panama City area will present their signature dish es. Some of the restaurants participating are Firey, Bonesh, Buccaneer, Uncle Ernies, Somethins Cookin and Trigo. The event will raise money and aware ness for Childrens Home Society because all of the proceeds benet their programs and work, said event chair and volunteer Krista Barker. But we also want everyone to have a great time because it is a fun event. Barker said she was moved by the work CHS does and became a volunteer and board member two years ago. I was just really touched by what they do for children and families, Barker said. I think if you donate to Childrens Home Society, you can feel good that your dona tion is going to help the most vulnerable in our society children. Throughout the evening, guests can en joy live entertainment by Mark Harris and Mojo Rising. Local children will be per forming, as well as the Fred Astaire danc ers. There will also be a testimony given by a family Childrens Home Society has helped during a difcult time. Though the event is a celebration, it is also a fundraising event. Organizers hope to raise more than $60,000 through spon sorships and ticket sales. Sixty-thousand dollars is amazing, but some of our programs cost $25,000 to oper ate a month, so we rely heavily on grants, Spivey said. And with the vulnerability go ing on with the Legislature, we just want to make sure we can sustain the programs. Compassionate Chefs for Kids will be $35 for general admission and $75 for VIP. It will be 6-9 p.m., starting at 5 p.m. for VIPs at the FSU PC Holley Academic Center. For more information, tickets or sponsor ships, contact Spivey at 747-5411.By Pat KellyFlorida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY One issue that has been giving some Airport Authority board members nightmares is nearing resolution. The Airport Authority board is close to turning the old airport in Panama City over to its new owners, a hurdle to the new airports successful future that board members have been struggling with for months. At issue is a $130,000 interest payment airport ofcials must make each month on state construction loans used to build the airport near West Bay, loans that will be paid off with the nal turnover of the old airport sale to the St. Andrew Bay Land Co. (SABLC), which is holding $56.5 million in escrow until the nal closing. Two of the last remaining stumbling blocks to a successful turnover are nal ly nearing completion, board Chairman Andy McKenzie said. We are edging closer and closer, I can tell you that. The Florida Department of Environ mental Protection recently sent a clear ance letter saying there were no remain ing environmental concerns at some ar eas of the 700-acre old airport site. That was good news for us, McKenzie said. Other areas still remain in question at the old facility and will determine the nal cleanup price that will be negotiated with the new owners once a 30-day notice to close is issued, board attorney Frank lin Harrison said. That notice should come within the next three to four weeks after repairs are completed to the sites passenger termi nal building, the last remaining obstacle to issuing the 30-day notice. That work is now under way and should be completed in the next three to four weeks, airport Executive Director John Wheat said. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in environmental credits are at stake in the nal purchase price, and the airport is testing sites for possible contamination in order to determine their size, Wheat said. Their size will determine how much in environmental credits the airport will receive, Wheat said. Once the 30-day notice is issued, the airport and SABLC can negotiate and nalize the level of environmental credits. Some board members had expressed concerns earlier this year that SABLC had hoped to delay closing until next year in order to get out of the sale. But Har rison said the airport and SABLC have been in constant contact over the last few weeks to evaluate the remaining environ mental areas in order to determine the level of environmental credits. It is an ongoing process, he said. The Northwest Florida Beaches Inter national Airport near West Bay ofcially opened on May 23, 2010. The environmental cleanup is essen tial because SABLC plans a village-type development for the old airport site that will include a mix of residential and multiuse building and open green spaces.

Julie Teffeteller reminded more than 300 peo ple who gathered at the Air Force Armament Museum last week to watch The Lost Airmen of Buch enwald just how lucky they were. Not only would they see the documentary for free, but they could speak to the director and three stars of the lm. The documentary tells the story of allied airmen in World War II who were sent to Buchenwald concen tration camp and were days away from being executed before they were spared. Their journey is so long and in teresting. And Buchenwald is only a part of it, Teffeteller said before the screening. I watched it twice. I think its a great lm, not only educational and inspirational, but entertaining. Ed Carter-Edwards, Don Shear er and Bluewater Bay resident El mer Clayton Freeman were three of the seven airmen who shared their stories with lmmaker Michael Dorsey, Freemans grandson. Freeman said his grandson did a wonderful job. It didnt overblow the thing but it got the misery and the feelings there. And the shots of Buchen wald, Ive got to admit they brought back bad memories, he said. Dorsey said the turnout for the screening was incredible. His grandfather was surprised by the response the lm has received. He told me he didnt know this many people were still interested in this, so its been a big revelation, Dorsey said. Carter-Edwards, who was in the Canadian Air Force, talked about his time in Buchenwalds inrmary. Doctors would tour the inrmary every day and point to the people who had been there for a while and did not appear to be recover ing quickly. Those people would be killed and cremated. Carter-Edwards survived because some of the people at the in rmary picked him up and moved him to a different bed to keep the doctors from noticing. Nightmares and visions of his parents kept him from giving up. Carter-Edwards paused and then said there might have been a con nection between his visions and his mothers prayers. She never gave up, he said.

The commissions mediation services produced outcomes that typically cost businesses 89 percent less than if the cases had ended up in court, gures show. The study reveals that the com mission (FCHR) provided Florida with an average return on invest ment of 144 percent over the past ve years. In other words, for ev ery $1 provided by taxpayers to fund FCHRs annual operations, the Commission returned an ad ditional $1.44 in benets to Florida businesses through avoided costs associated with discrimination lawsuits. Were extremely proud of the commissions record resolving cases that allege discrimination, said Interim Co-Director Michelle Wilson. While ensuring the rights of individuals is of paramount im portance, the less money and time a business has to spend defending itself in court, the more that busi ness can focus on creating jobs for Floridians. Over the span of the 200607 through 2010-11 scal years, FCHRs free mediation process helped individual complainants in 508 cases reach a mutually agree able resolution with those they had accused of illegal discrimination. During that same time period, FCHR issued no cause deter minations in 3,571 cases. Without FCHR closing these cases quickly, a portion of them likely would have gone to court and required busi nesses to incur attorney costs, court fees, investigative and depo sition expenses, and other courtrelated expenses even though the actual complaints may not have been substantiated. While the extensive savings from these no-cause ndings can not be rmly established, the me diation cases offer clear evidence of FCHRs value to the business sector: According to a 2006 analysis by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics, the average court-or dered damage award in discrimi nation cases was $134,125. Since mid-2006, the average settlement amount in cases suc cessfully mediated by FCHR is $14,527. Therefore, the average cost avoided per case resulting from FCHR mediation services is $119,598. This average savings multi plied by the number of successful mediations (508) equals $60,755,784, or an average of $12,151,156 per year. These gures do not include additional expenditures, such as attorney fees or court costs. Although average damage awards have likely risen signi cantly over the past ve years, FCHRs study reects a more con servative estimate based on the last documented federal study of discrimination case awards. Avoid ed court costs to businesses could in fact be substantially higher than what has been estimated by FCHR, but this cannot be deter mined conclusively. The study also establishes FCHRs return on investment for the taxpayers of Florida, based on the successful resolution of cases through mediation. Over the past ve scal years, the Legislature has appropriated just under $5 million per year, on average, for FCHRs entire annual budget. In the same period, businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.1 million per year in avoided costs. Thus businesses saved an additional $1.44 beyond each $1.00 spent to fund FCHR. Over the past ve scal years: The Legislature has appro priated, on average, $4.99 million per year for FCHR operations. Businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.15 million per year in avoided costs (as documented above). Return on Investment: 144% to taxpayers/businesses above the level of FCHR funding.Human Relations Commission study: millions savedThe Sure Shots 4-H Club of Washing ton County started off the 2011-12 4-H Year with a big bang.

OUTDoo OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection&If I were going to let the grouper go their merry way and I wanted to catch some sh that didnt require burning up $1,000 in gas, I would go to St. Joe Bay. The reports from over there are sounding better and better. The water is as clear as a bell, and the redsh and speckled trout are starting to turn on after this last bout of bad weather. The only problem is which way the wind is going to blow. One day they are saying a front isnt going to come through and give us some cooler weather, and then the next thing you hear is it will be in the 60s. It might rain, and then again it might not. Dont worry about the temperature, worry about the direction of the wind. St. Joe Bay lies in a northsouth direction. If the wind blows from the east, it leaves you little choice but to sh the east side, which is not my favorite. If it blows from the west, you are in business. This will keep the west shore wave-free, and that means sight-shing for speckled trout will be very good. If the wind blows from the north, you might as well stay home and watch football because the entire bay will be messed up. To keep from burning a ton of gas, I recommend going to the state park on the west side of the bay and launching. Catch a livewell full of menhaden or choffers, and put someone on the poling platform or drop the electric motor. Just ease down the bank as slowly as possible and sight-sh for trout and redsh. Except for catching speckled trout on topwater, this form of shing for specks is one of the most exciting ways of shing for trout and reds. To actually see the sh, cast to it and then get it to bite is a blast. After you catch your rst one, you will feel like you know something no other sherman knows. The stump hole on the inside of the bay reportedly is full of redsh. A shallow-water boat is needed to sh this area because of the depth. A kayak would be better, but a shallow-riding ats boat also would do the trick if you go at high tide. Free line choffers or menhaden, and dont use any lead. Keep an eye on the wind, because this is a big body of water, and it can become extremely rough.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com.Hook harvest The ultimate Panhandle rig?BAY BOATSBy Frank Sargeantfranksargeant@bellsouth.net To be sure, no one boat will do it all, but one style comes close. For anglers who sh both the shallows of coastal bays and the green water off the beaches, its hard to beat the vessel that has become known as the bay boat. These are center-console rigs from 17 to 24 feet long; theyre considerably larger than the classic ats boat, which maxes out at 17 feet in most versions, but not nearly as large as most offshore boats, which typically are 24 feet and up. But bay boats have design features other than length that make them so versatile. For one thing, they sport a shallow vee bottom. Combined with relatively light weight, this allows them to run in very shallow water. Though they wont quite match the ankle-deep capability of some ultra-light ats rigs, most bay boats will easily run in just 18 inches of water and can be poled in as little as 12 inches. That means they can do a good job in the pursuit of ats species such as redsh, often found in water less than knee-deep. Bay boats also boast a longer running surface and higher freeboard (distance between the waterline and the gunwale) than ats rigs, which makes them more capable of delivering a smoother, drier ride in rough water. Most ats boats will beat your brains out in a foot-tall chop, but a bay boat with the bow trimmed down can handle three-footers. In good weather with a competent skipper, they can readily take on Panhandle inlets, allowing anglers to get offshore to sh for cobia, kings, Spanish and reef species. The larger size of bay boats also means you can carry a sizable crew families of two adults and three kids t nicely into a 21-footer, while three is denitely a crowd in any ats boat. And the broad beam of most bay rigs allows safe installation of a tower, a great spot from which to look for cobia or tarpon cruising at the surface. Many bay boats also are rigged with hard tops, providing shade at the helm and overhead space for a radio box and life preservers. Bay boats typically weigh between 1,500 and 2,500 pounds, which means they run nicely on a single outboard as small as 150 horses. Particularly with four-strokes or HPDI two-strokes, fuel economy is very good. The light weight also means an electric trolling motor mounted on the bow makes these boats very easy to maneuver when youre sneaking up on sh. Casting decks bow and stern offer lots of space to swing a rod, and all have lots of storage in water-resistant compartments below the decks. Trailering boats in this weight class is not a problem for any medium to fullsized truck with a frame hitch. Theres no need for giant V8-powered tow vehicles and weight-distributing hitches, which are required in towing a big offshore rig. If your interests are more in chasing billsh, dolphin, wahoo and tuna, the bay boat is not for you you need a big, deep, twin-engined offshore rig, and that will cost you plenty. Fortunately, in the Panhandle, there are hundreds of offshore charter boats that can take you out for less than the cost of a monthly payment on an offshore rig and also save you all the maintenance headaches. Unless youre absolutely rabid about shing blue water and have bushels of money to boot its better to rent time aboard a charter instead of having that six-digit monster depreciating in your driveway. A lot of bay boat companies have come and gone in the last few years. My favorite builder for both economy and quality, Sea Pro, sank without a ripple a few years back, but a lot of good used Sea Pros still are around. Many other familiar names still are in business; Ranger, Skeeter, Triton and others build high-end rigs, while Mako available at Tracker/Bass Pro Shops in Destin and Hydra-Sports are medium-priced alternatives. Good used bay boats can be owned for about $15,000, while premium brands new can cost more than $75,000. FRAn N K SS ARGEAn N T | Special to Florida FreedomAbove, bay boats like this Ranger are a Panhandle favorite, with shallow draft that allows ats access plus enough length, beam and vee to handle moderate offshore duties in good weather. Renting: an economy angle for the casual boaterBy Frank Sargeantfranksargeant@bellsouth.net The Freedom Boat Club offers a way of having an assortment of boats ready to use at a price thats well under the typical monthly payment for owning a boat. Brian Gwinnup, owner of the Freedom franchise at Bluewater Bay, Destin, said year-round, go-anytime membership is $249 a month, and economy memberships that allow use except on summer weekends are just $200. The club requires a one-time $4,900 membership fee to join. We fuel the boat, put it in the water for you and clean it up, Gwinnup said. You just load your crew and gear and go. He said the eet at his facility includes a 25-foot offshore boat with twin outboards, a 21-foot bay boat, a deck boat, a 19-foot center console and a sailboat. Gwinnup said an online reservation system allows boaters to reserve boats in advance, but its also possible to call up and get an immediate slot if boats are vacant. Were open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in summer, and if anglers want to go out at daybreak, well get them set with the boat the night before, he said. When anglers bring the boat back to the dock, its refueled at the users expense. Its then cleaned and put in dry storage, ready for the next trip. You dont have to worry about insurance, theft, any of those ownership issues, Gwinnup said. There also are franchises at Niceville, Gulf Breeze and 57 other coastal locations around the eastern U.S. For details, visit www.freedomboat club.com. Page 8 Wednesday, September 21, 2011

The game featured two of the favorites in the new Ru ral classication, as the Tigers improved to 3-0 on the season. Kobe McCrary scored three touchdowns for Chipley, which held a 22-19 lead at the half and never trailed. McCrary scored on a 45-yard pass from Josh Myers in the rst quar ter and added TD runs of 25 and 3 yards. James Voorhees added a 79-yard kickoff return for a TD for Chipley. McKinney went in from 25 yards to give Chipley the deciding margin. North view (1-1) drove past the Tigers 30-yard line and was stopped yards short on fourth down. The two teams are in separate regions in the Rural classication. If they met in the playoffs it would be in the state seminal. That would be where Chipley and coach Rob Armstrong want to be, but he said theres more work to be done before any dreams of the Final Four can be realized. It was a big win because it was two good football teams and this is a gauge for where we are at this time of the season, Armstrong said. But were only three weeks into the season, we havent started district play yes and thats about all that it means. Im real proud of the kids and the coaches and we played well offensively and defensively. They (North view) are a well-coached team, played hard and have great football players, It was a heckuva game. Chipley is at Marianna next week in another nondistrict game.By Steve LinerManaging Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Confronted with an 18-0 decit as the rst quarter came to an end, the Holmes County High School Blue Devils (now 3-0) proved unstoppable for the remainder of the game. The team racked up 27 unanswered points to squelch the Baker High School Gators 28-18. The Devils romped behind a surprisingly ver satile quarterback in 11, Ethan Russ, and his un stoppable brother, 7, of fensive runningback Cody Russ for their third victory in as many outings. Cody Russ was the most ver satile player of the game, providing service on of fense, defense and special teams, where he served as kicker. In fact, for three Devil touchdowns he both made the touchdown run and point after kick. The lightning quick Number 7 proved virtually unstoppable to the Gator defense for much of the evening. The Blue Devil effort in cluded two goal line stands against Baker on the night, holding their rivals out of the end zone on both. Blue Devil Head Coach Brad Johnson credited the early decit to crucial pen alty calls and reigned in his team who drew only three adverse calls for the nal three periods of play. Its game time now, crooned Ethan Russ after the Blue Devils second touchdown of the night in the second quarter just be fore the haltime whistles blew. The Gators were not so fortunate in penalties, drawing back-to-back holding calls on offense and three delay of game calls on the night.By JASON SHOOTFlorida Freedom Newspapers VERNONERNON Bozemans defense redeemed itself when it needed to, and place-kicker Jordan Burns took care of the rest. Burns booted a 26-yard eld goal in overtime to lift the Bucks to a 17-14 victory over Vernon in a non-district football game Friday night. Vernon quarterback Hunter Dobbs reeled off a 47-yard touchdown run with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter and then scored on a two-point conversion to tie the game and send it into overtime. Bozemans defense bounced back with an impressive showing in overtime, preventing the Yellow Jackets (1-2) from gaining positive yardage on any of their four plays in the extra session. With the ball placed in the middle of the hash marks at the 10-yard line, Bucks coach Loren Till man sent Burns out to kick the game-winner. The attempt split the uprights, and Bozemans players rushed the eld to cel ebrate their hard-fought victory. He did very good, Bozeman quarterback Jacob Martinez said of Burns. The coaches made a great call. Jordan did it. Martinez engineered an eight-play, 60-yard drive in the rst quarter. Marti nez broke loose on a 21yard scramble on fourthand-4 to move the ball to Vernons 15, and two plays later located Tommy Cook in the end zone on a 15yard touchdown pass for a 7-6 lead 10 seconds into the second quarter. Martinez compiled 81 rushing yards and another 80 passing to power the Bucks. Bozeman totaled 252 yards as a team. We put points on the board (early) and it gave me condence, Martinez said. The Bucks (2-1) seem ingly put the game away late in the fourth quarter with Daniel Taylors 2yard plunge into the end zone with 2:23 remain ing. That play capped an 11-play drive that began at Bozemans 35. Taylor nearly fumbled away pos session at Vernons 4, but he bounced back two plays later running off tackle to the right and diving over the goal line. Vernons top playmaker on offense, senior tailback Shaquille Powell, watched the game from the sidelines with a sling securing his right arm. Powell injured his shoulder last week against Wewahitchka. The Yellow Jackets didnt appear to need him initially. On the second play from scrimmage, Dobbs rolled out to his right before heaving a strike downeld to Julian Silas that turned into a 76-yard touchdown and a quick 6-0 lead. Vernon attempted a two-point conversion, but JQ Leverette was tackled before reaching the goal line. That Dobbs kid is a great player, Tillman said. He made plays all over the eld. Powells absence was more noticeable as the game progressed. Vernon could have used his break away speed as its offense bogged down in the rst half. After their big play, the Yellow Jackets com piled just 54 more yards before halftime. Bozemans defense continued to corral Vernons defense in the second half. The Yellow Jackets gained only 12 yards on offense in the third quarter, and they didnt register a rst down after halftime until the fourth quarter. Dobbs nished with 170 total yards for Vernon.Holmes County comes from behind to winCHS Tigers move to 3-0 on the seasonBozeman takes Vernon to overtime loss Ph H OTO By Y JAMES BB Ail IL Ey Y Blue Devils offense proved unstoppable for the Baker High Gators.

LocalA10 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, September 21, 2011By Elaine SanchezAmerican Forces Press Service WASHINGTON Several months ago, the producers of ABCs Extreme Makeover: Home Edition asked me to spread the word about their search for people involved in the military to feature on the shows upcoming season. They got a huge response and selected an exceptional Navy veteran for a home makeover. A few months ago, I traveled to Fayetteville, N.C., to watch hundreds of volunteers build Barbara Marshall a new 5,000square-foot home. The threestory home, dubbed the Jubilee House, serves as a shelter and resource center for homeless female veterans. This episode, which also features a special visit by First Lady Michelle Obama, will kick off the shows ninth season Sept. 25. With that episode ready to air, the shows producers once again are seeking people involved with the military to feature in upcoming episodes. The producers are looking for people with amazing strength of character and who put their own needs aside to help others, they said in a news release. Whether its a soldier, a mom, a teacher or a reman, we think deserving families are families who inspire those around them. Additionally, the shows producers are seeking families whose houses need major alterations or repair homes that present serious problems for the family and affect the familys quality of life. To be eligible, families must own their single-family home and be able to demonstrate how a makeover will make a difference in their lives. Rather than apply through the normal channels, interested military families or people who wish to nomi-nate a military family can email a short description of the familys story directly to Jackie Topacio, casting producer, at jax@emhe. tv. Jackie told me she wants to make sure she reads every story submitted. Please dont wait to apply; the deadline for nominations is Sept. 29. The email should include the names and ages of household members, a description of the familys challenges, an explanation of why the family is deserving of a makeover or is a positive role model in the community, photos of the family and their home, and contact numbers. For more information on the application process, visit abc. go.com/primetime/xtremehome/ index?pn=apply. Please pass this information on to deserving military families.

The song is now #1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Album and Song Charts and Top 20 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart for his new album Forever If Never. The last song on the album is called These Crazy Times, which I wrote shortly after my cousin died on the oil rig, said McLaughlin. Its about what happened with the oil spill and whats going on with the economy; its mainly a song written in frustrating times when things are not moving as fast as wed like them; unfortunately I think its a song that people can relate with. He currently holds the number one spot for his track, Maybe Its Over, making this the third album in a row to hit top single on the charts. Additional tracks from Forever if Ever also are located on the Top 20, including Ill Follow You at #5 and If Only I at #9 and My Girl Tonight at #20. McLaughlin is starting a 3-month, 40 city tour on September 27th, which will run through the end of the year. A private link for media to preview the album is available here: soundcloud.com/ user8796451/sets/jonmclaughlin-forever-if-ever/ s-ppBQO McLaughlin also was in a recent Disney lm, Enchanted, lmed in a ballroom scene singing So Close. I was on my way back home when a woman that worked with my record company asked me if Id like to sing a song for a Disney movie, said McLaughlin. I grew up watching Disney movies, so I was excited and told them I would, and before I knew it, they went from me just recording the song to me being in the movie. He said he got a real glimpse into what it takes to make a movie. We were lming the ballroom scene in a warehouse and I must say Ive got a new respect for those who make movies because we were in that warehouse for weeks doing that same scene over and over, said McLaughlin. Each scene became harder and harder because theyd drop this glitter from the ceiling and to redo the scene theyd have to clean up the glitter and do it again; it was a lot of hard work, but it was also a lot of fun. McLaughlin said he grew up playing the piano and listening to music by Elton John and Billy Joel. Its funny how life works, said McLaughlin. My career that has been lled with critical acclaim and success that has taken me up the charts, to the Oscars, into the studio with fellow artists like Jason Mraz, and on the road with Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, and Marc Broussard. He said that hes had four years, two albums, hit singles like Beautiful Disaster and an Academy Award performance that brought him to an unlikely crossroads when it came time to record a new disc. I wanted to write songs, and I wanted them to be my own, said McLaughlin. Ive been very grateful for the brilliant songwriters that my label had paired me with while making 2007s Indiana and OK Now (2008), but I missed the connection I felt when singing lyrics from my own soul. McLaughlin chose to part ways with Island Records and got back to writing solo. I just wanted to take a year or two to just write and thats what I did, he said. Then after a year I went back to looking for a label, but with the economy the way it was no one was looking for an artist. He said that didnt get him down and he encouraged his band to get together and record an album on their own. Our band recorded on our own and what we thought was just going to be a demo ended up being a whole record recorded in my house because we got so excited about the music, McLaughlin said. And thats how we got Forever if Never. McLaughlin said he was grateful to be managing his own music because now he could get back to the style of music he felt connected with. Ive always seemed to be drawn to love songs, he said. Those heartbreaking songs are what I think does the most for peoples emotions, whether it be a love song or a good song about heartbreak; you want a song to connect with your emotions. He said his inspiration comes from just living from day to day. It always seems like Im looking back and seeing that things were not as bad as they seemed, he said. Like when I was in college and stressing out about having no time; now I look back with my career as it is now and think that I had way more time at that time then now. He said it was like catching on to a pattern. I think that Ive gained a little more foresight and learned to relax a lot more, said McLaughlin. Because I dont want to miss a single moment because Im too wrapped up in stressing over the little things.
