The autopsies are done but the reports have yet to be nalized. The toxicology report wont be back in for quite sometime. Holmes County Sheriffs Capt. Harry Hamilton CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCNHCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY City Auditor Hilton Galloway of CRI gave the City of Boni fay a positive report on Monday, in forming the council that the city is in good nancial standing and is looking to improve over the next year, if not longer. The city has got the huge ben et of a lot of grant revenue for city improvements, said Galloway. Not to mention you should be set for the next 40 to 50 years with the new sewer treatment plant as well as money saved from the cost of repairs to the water and sewer lines. Galloway also praised the coun cil on their wise and sound nancial investments through government bonds with more then ve years on them to mature. This gives you a chance to actu ally be able to wait until they come to full maturity so that you can receive full benets of the investment, said Galloway. It helps that youve re ceived more money in grants than in payouts and you have no violations in grant compliance. I cant say that the city is completely healthy, but its one of the few cities that can say they arent in a state of deteriorating nan cial condition. Galloway said the only concern was that the funds they were receiv ing for water and sewer was only at 71 percent, when it should be at least at 90 percent. We wont know whats causing that for sure until the new sewer treatment plant and system is complete, said Galloway. For all we know it might be contributed by the continual repair work going on to the water lines. The council approved to recent their contract bid to Royal American Construction for the CDBG Water System Improvements project due to previous complications in the bidding process. When the bids were rst placed, Gulf Coast Utility Contractors was the lowest bidder and would be the obvi ous bid for Bonifay, but a last minute adjustment made Royal American Construction the lowest bidder. Af ter much discussion Royal American Construction was approved of as the lowest bidder. The city was then met with re taliation from Golf Coast Utility Con tractors, who threatened to begin a bid protest pursuant to Florida Administrative Rule 28-110.003 and Auditor: Bonifay in good nances, improving Lawsuit: City must turn over transcripts See AUDITOR A2 MINDDRIVE visits WHTC on Coast-to-Coast Tour | A8 By ALI HELGOTH 522-5118 | @AHelgoth ahelgoth@pcnh.com CHIPLEY The Wash ington County News won a legal victory Tuesday when Vernon was given 10 days to turn over a transcript of an April executive session. Circuit Court Judge Chris Patterson ruled the city violated the states Sun shine Laws during the exec utive session held on April 23 to update new city council members and the mayor on pending litigation. The bottom line is the whole purpose of govern ing in the sunshine is so the public knows what is hap pening with their governing ofcials, Patterson said. Although elected ofcials are allowed to go into execu tive session for the reason cited by the citys attorney Kerry Adkison, the law out lines strict regulations for how the session must begin, and it requires the govern ing body to reconvene in public and formally end the executive session. Randal Seyler, manag ing editor of the Washing ton County News, testied he doesnt know whether the meeting ever actually ended. Patterson said he was moved by that statement, and asked rhetorically if the meeting was ongoing. The Sunshine Laws also require a transcript of the meeting be led within a reasonable amount of time. The transcript becomes public after the pending liti gation ends. The city has not led a transcript. Patterson said he had to strictly interpret the states open meeting law, and based on evidence presented the

that Coatney, 47, shot and killed his wife, 41-year-old Tammie Renae Coatney, and then shot and killed himself. Authorities reported that a juvenile witnessed the murder-suicide. Records from the Hol mes County Courthouse do not reveal a history of domestic violence and fam ily and neighbors described the couple to be quiet and easy going. Facebook condolences ooded onto the wall of Tammie Coatneys children on Thursday afternoon, re membering Tammie as a wonderful woman who could always make people laugh and someone who could always make any one feel welcome at the Caryville Baptist Church. The Coatneys were close friends, said a neigh bor. Im just worried about the boy; his mom and dad are both gone. Right now hes surrounded by people try ing to show him some love. Flowing Well Road resi dent Wayne Albury heard a shot when he was out pick ing peas in his garden. I only heard one bullet, Albury said. Next thing I saw the police and the am bulance go by. While Albury didnt know the Coatneys, he said his late wife knew them well. A resident of the area for 33 years, Albury said he has seen the neighbor hood change slowly over the years. Weve had some prob lems here, Albury said. You know, kids, drugs. You cant seem to stay away from that these days. Funeral services were held for Tammie Renae Coatney at 3 p.m. on Mon day at Church of Jesus Christ in Caryville, with the Rev. Edward Williams ofciating. Interment fol lowed in the Caryville City Cemetery with Peel Funeral Home of Bonifay directing. Family received friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Peel Funeral Home.

IN BRIEF from page A1 INVESTIGATION from page A1 AN D REW WA R D LOW | The News Herald Law enforcement ofcers work the scene where two people were shot and killed in Holmes County on Thursday. Florida Statutes Section 120.57. City Attorney Lucas Tay lor advised that the council rescind the bid, reject all other bids and then rebid the project, which the grant allowed. For the cost of $2,000 the Council approved to reject all bids and then re-bid the project at no cost to those whove already placed their bid to the project once again and giving new bidders 14 days to place their bids, put ting the end date at July 13. A Bonifay resident came in complaining about his neighbors goats. What with the hot sum mer weather coming and theres these goats with all their feces in the back yard and their natural goat smell the odor alone is unbear able, he said. If shes al lowed to keep goats I should be allowed to have a cow to eat my grass, give me milk and pull me around in my wheelchair. Something needs to be done, because theres more then just goats, its cats and dogs and all those feces together is just unbearable. Council member Roger Brooks rst motioned that the police chief remove the goats and then he rescinded the vote to request that the attorney look into a nui sance ordinance they could enforce. Brooks also requested that Varner Street be re paired because it was sink ing in the middle. David and Vicky Guthrie of Healing Palms Hyperbar ics requested reprieve from the city for the impact fees billed to them, which was $900 for water tap and hookup fees and $1,800 impact fee for sewer. The owners attributed their inability to pay to the poor nancial situation theyve found themselves in due to lack of revenue and offered to pay the $900 for the water tap and hook-up. The council approved waiving the sewer impact fees for two years and then bill them $900 a year for two years for the remaining $1,800. The next Bonifay City Council meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on July 9 at the Bonifay City Hall. AUDITOR from page A1 LAWSUIT from page A1 city did not follow those regulations. We appreciate Judge Pattersons recognition of the importance of pub lic record laws that are intended to generate condence in workings of government and in the application in this case of the city of Vernon and not complying with those laws, said Washington County News Publisher Nicole Bareeld. Access to public re cords and governing in the sunshine are the foundation for trust and ac countability for actions taken by our elected ofcials. Adkison argued because the city council did not take any ofcial action, the executive session did not consti tute a meeting and was not subject to the Sunshine Laws. He also suggest ed the discussion should be covered by attorney-client privilege. Patterson disagreed the meet ing was exempt from the law, but he is giving Adkison the opportunity to argue the transcripts of the meeting contain privileged information. He ordered the transcripts be turned over to attorneys for Wash ington County News and its parent company, Freedom Communications, within 10 days. He is giving an addi tional 10 days for Adkison to argue why the information should not im mediately be made public. Adkison said after the hearing he is going to comply with the judges or der to turn over the transcript, but no decision has been made about wheth er he will argue against making the document public. The lawsuit was led in late May after weeks of failed attempts to get the city to respond to or discuss a pub lic records request with The News or its attorney.

Call today for your personal appointment. Q1. Will the bank take my house? No. The title to the property remains in your name. You must keep the taxes and insurance current on the property. Q2. Does my home have to be free and clear? No. Many people get a Reverse Mortgage to pay off their current mortgage or equity thereby eliminating those monthly payments. Q3. How much money can I receive? Three factors are taken into consideration: Date of birth of the youngest person on the title, your zip code and the value of your home. Q4. Is the money I receive taxable? No. The IRS treats these funds as borrowed money. This is a loan, not income. Q5. What happens to my home when I pass away? The loan is repaid to the lender through the sale or refinancing of your home by your heirs. Any proceeds in excess of the amount owed to the lender belong to your heirs. You only pay for the funds you used plus interest. Q6. What if I dont use all the money? You and yours heirs are required to pay back ONLY the outstanding balance that is due. Any money remaining after the mortgage is paid, regardless of the home value, goes to your heirs. Q7. Can I be forced to sell or vacate my home if the loan amount exceeds the value of my home? No. The FHA mortgage insurance guarantees they pay the difference to the lender. You cannot be forced to sell your home if the loan exceeds its value.

Furr and Jacqueline Furr From Staff Reports WASHINGTON COUNTY This public service an nouncement is to advise that there have been in creased cases of wild ani mals with rabies. In April and May, two cases of rabies in raccoons were conrmed. The two raccoons were found around the Wausau area. Last week, a fox at tacked two people in Ver non, biting one, who will be gin receiving rabies shots this week. Bay County has been under a rabies alert for most of the past year. Anyone who has been bitten, scratched or had mucous membrane con tact (such as eyes, nose, or mouth) with a raccoon, fox, or other wild animal should contact the health depart ment in their county (Wash ington County Health De partment 638-6240, Holmes County Health Department 547-8500). The following are steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against rabies: If you are bitten by an animal, wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water and seek medical attention immediately. Re port the bite to your county health department and ani mal control agency. Keep rabies vaccina tions up-to-date for all pets. Keep your pets under direct supervision, so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If a wild ani mal bites your pet, seek vet erinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact your local county health department. The numbers are listed above. Do not handle, feed or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans, litter, or pet food. Never adopt wild ani mals or bring them into your home. Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly. Unusual acting animals should be reported to the Washington County Animal Control at 638-6306. Any one bitten or scratched by wild animals or stray dogs and cats should report the incident to their doctor im mediately, and the animal control agency and the county health department in their area.

Due to nancial rea sons, the Poplar Springs Beta Club was unable to secure a charter bus to this years National Ju nior Beta Convention, so the parents volunteered to provide transportation and requested that the HCSD approve the travel changes. Board member Gary Scott inquired about us ing personal vehicles for school-sanctioned trips. After much discussion they found that personal vehicles were allowed and covered under the school boards insurance as long as each vehicle meets the schools requirements as a safe and insured vehicle and all the proper docu mentation has been led before the trip. The board approved of the new travel arrange ments pending that all the required measures have been met to do so. Discussion continued on to sports travel as well as after school activities. We want to be consis tent in all our policies, Superintendent Gary Gal loway said. This was an excellent opportunity for us to evaluate our policies from a practical standpoint, and now I feel we should arrange to hold evaluations with all the schools to see how our pol icies are being enforced. The board also ap proved the hiring of two technology assistants, Lee Gilley and Shane Schil ler, to work from July 9 to Aug. 9, to be paid by the RTT Grant; the hire Mary Dady for ESE Summer School; the transfer Odell Paul from GAP to Bonifay Middle School; the trans fer Stephanie Williams from Bonifay Elementary School to BMS; maternity leave for Anna Taylor, a teacher at Poplar Springs, beginning Aug. 10 and end ing June 10, 2013; resigna tions from Aileen Mork, teacher at BES and effec tive July 31, Cheryl West, teacher at Bethlehem High School.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out and supported us in our fundraiser ( sh fry and grilled chicken plates) this past Saturday, June 23. We had a very successful event thanks to the support received from our community. If I tried to thank everyone individually I would surely miss someone, but the key people I would like to say thank you to for the donations received are the local businesses in Bonifay and the New Hope Fire Department for loaning the decorations. Also, thank you to the ladies and men in the community who gave of their time to supply the side items as well as the desserts and to all the volunteers who gave of their time to cook the sh, chicken. Again thank you! Sincerely, Alfred Sellers Assistant Chief Pittman VFD Bonifay Sometimes, when I dont have a story, a story comes to me. Many times, about Thursday of the week, I am thinking about what I will write for my Friday deadline and often, I draw a blank. With blueberry season in full swing, this week I was seriously considering emailing the editor and saying, Pull one from the archives. But then, I drove up to the blueberry shed with some U-Pickers on the golf cart, and there was my story. Two guys looking very hot and exhausted were wiping sweat and purchasing a carton of blueberries. My husband said, These two have ridden their bicycles all the way from Chattanooga, Tenn. I said, Oh, great! There is my story. They cooled off a bit while I got my camera and writing pad. The two were Mr. Paul Roland and his grandson, Alex Roland. The third member of their party, Pauls son and Alexs dad Todd, had left his backpack at the Florida state line above Esto when they stopped to make pictures of their reaching Florida. He had backtracked to pick up his backpack. (Hope he hadnt ridden too far when he remembered it and that it was still there.) Paul, a retired actuary, and Todd, a high school chemistry teacher, had biked the entire distance from Chattanooga since last Friday (six days ago), but Alex had contracted a bug the rst day and had to be picked up so he rejoined the ride on the fth day. Mr. Roland rst visited Panama City Beach in 1965, and the family has been visiting there for many years, where they hold a large family reunion every two years. But their extended family come every year to visit, and for the past 10 years, Tison Blueberry Farm has been one of their regular stops. When asked what prompted them to attempt the bike journey, grandfather Paul said it was Alexs idea. However, Alex, who will be in 10th grade next year, said it was kind of a challenge he made to his dad. He said that his dad was always suggesting preposterous things that they should try to do, but bicycling to Panama City Beach was something that he saw that they could actually do, so he dared the two older men to give a go. I asked if they trained for the trip, and the grandfather admitted that he had been training for about two months. The son and grandson ride regularly on Schwinn combination road and mountain bikes, but Mr. Rolands was a Giant speed bike. For their trip, they used light back packs and saddle bags on the bikes, keeping the weight to ten pounds, mostly water. One mistake they made, he said, was passing up an opportunity to get water when they were maybe half empty. Then, they ran out of water on a long stretch of highway where none was available. They were so thirsty, they pulled into someones yard. The kind gentleman invited them into his home where it was cool to re ll their bottles. He said that all along the way, there were no unpleasant incidents. Drivers had been very courteous, giving them plenty of room as they passed. No one shouted insults or threw trash at them. Their nights have been spent in motels. After traveling from Troy, Ala., Thursday, they were to spend the night in a Bonifay motel then travel on to the beach on Friday. They expected to be there in time to have lunch with their wives who were already there. We expect to see them on their return trip by automobile the end of next week. Through the years weve met a lot of interesting people through the blueberry business. Though we never travel far from home, the world has been brought to our yard through the blueberry business. Too bad I havent kept a journal so that I could write about more of them. Bicyclists provide Corner this week HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison LETTER TO THE EDITOR SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISER Paul Roland and his grandson Alex Roland are riding their bicycles from Chattanooga, Tenn., to Panama City Beach. I got my rst taste of watermelon, Panhandle-style this weekend, and I have to say I was impressed. I wasnt crazy about the humidity Friday night, but in spite of the weather I thought the 56th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival was a great event. I was impressed by the musical performances on Friday night, and also impressed by the large number of people who braved the weather to come enjoy the festivities. Between tropical storm Debby and the typical summer humidity, everyone looked fairly soggy after an hour or so at Pals Park Friday. And soggy though they might have been, most festival goers also looked happy. All in all, the festival seemed to move along without a hitch, which is a great testament to the men and women who volunteer behind the scenes. Something as wonderful as the Watermelon Festival doesnt just happen. It takes dozens of volunteers working for months in advance to make an event like the festival happen. And for it to happen so smoothly, well, that takes an expert hand and lots of hard work. Washington County Judge Colby Peel, chairman of the festival, and his volunteers deserve a big thank you for their efforts, so the next time you see one these volunteers be sure to thank them for their efforts. Watermelon Festival soggy but fun RANDAL SEYLER Editor Grandfather-father-son trio pass through local blueberry farm

ABMs goal is to drive costs out of clients oper ating budgets in a manner that al lows them to reallocate funding for other facility enhancements. The project, which is scheduled to be completed by August of this year, will reduce energy consump tion on Washington-Holmes Techni cal Centers 26-acre campus by over one million kWh per year. Along with signicant utility and operating savings, ABM is set to of fer students in the schools building trades program hands-on experi ence with the project. This innova tive concept was a compelling bonus for the Washington-Holmes admin istration, as students will be allowed to walk through ABMs tested and proven solutions. The process will include a eld survey to challenge students to identify opportunities, note potential alterations that are code compliant, and create solutions alongside ABM to improve the cam pus efciency. This is a wonderful opportunity to provide our students with career and technical training that can bet ter prepare them for a competitive workplace, Martha Compton, direc tor of Washington-Holmes Technical Center, said. The students are an intricate part of the process and will benet greatly from this learning experience. It is this type of outsidethe-box thinking that we must pro mote moving forward. What could be better than nding a practical way to help our students learn while improving our facility? Key renovations ABM is set to provide the 15 buildings on campus include retrotting light xtures with new high-efciency T-8 uores cent lamps and ballasts; renovating exhaust systems in certain buildings for improved air circulation; instal lation of a campus-wide, web-based HVAC control system, allowing the school to better manage energy use as well as notify appropriate staff should any problems arise with the equipment; and 63 HVAC units will be replaced with high-efciency equipment that exceeds a Seasonal Energy Efciency Ratio (SEER) of 15. Additionally, ABM will be install ing a high-efciency 10kW solar pan el system that is being donated by lo cal utility provider Gulf Power Com pany, headquartered in Pensacola. Through our partnership with Washington-Holmes Technical Cen ter, we are able to provide the stu dents a unique learning experience by involving them in the energy-ef ciency improvements, President of ABM Building and Energy Solu tions Scott Giacobbe said. By teach ing the students how to make their school more efcient, safe and sus tainable, we are helping to develop leaders within the next generation of eld technicians.

Annette Lanham, a master food volunteer who works with the county extension ofce to teach pressure canning and food preservation class es in Washington and Holmes coun ties, is working to reopen the center under the auspices of the extension ofce. Lanham addressed the Washing ton County Board of County Commis sioners Thursday and presented her plans for the canning center. It is too late to do anything this year, but I hope we can have the cen ter open for 2013, Lanham told the commissioners. In each of the ve classes weve taught this year, students have asked about the status of the canning cen ter, expressing an interest in utilizing the facility, she said. Its my desire to see the canning center reopened, and I have been researching what it would take to make that happen. Lanham said the center was last open for an entire season in 2009, under the direction of the Tri-County Community Council. In 2010 the cen ter was open on a limited basis, and in 2011 it was by appointment only. The centers boiler is no longer function ing, and the expense to repair it is es timated at being more than $30,000. An estimate from the naval facility in Panama City, where the center had hoped to nd an economical replace ment boiler, turned out to be about $17,000, Lanham said. I have researched options for re moving the boiler altogether, replac ing the steam canners with conven tional stove-top canners and operat ing the canning center on propane, Lanham said. Removal of the boiler will alleviate the requirement to have a trained boiler operator on-site. Ret rotting costs would be considerably less than the $37,000 boiler replace ment estimate. Lanham asked the commission ers to consider funding the center with a $5,000 budget line-item next year. The BOCC used to send money to Tri-County earmarked for the can ning center, she said, and the money could be used to reopen the center. I plan on going to the city coun cils in Chipley, Wausau, Vernon and Ebro and asking them for funding, too, she said. The city of Vernon owns the canning center building, but the building currently has no liability insurance coverage. The city is look ing into adding the facility to its mu nicipal coverage, Lanham said. Tri-County has also taken equip ment from the center, but they have agreed to return most of it if the center can be reopened, Lanham said, including a pea-sheller and a potato-peeler. Ive been looking for a pea-shell er, Sheriff Bobby Haddock said. Id like to see if we couldnt work some thing out that would be benecial to both the center and the county. There you have it, Chairman Hulan Carter joked. The sheriff is going to fund it. Energy program to save WHTC $2 million Canning Center topic of BOCC discussion By teaching the students how to make their school more efcient, safe and sustainable, we are helping to develop leaders within the next generation of eld technicians. Scott Giacobbe President of ABM Building and Energy Solutions By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY In 1992, Tallahassee attorney and Bonifay native Bruce Pel ham received frightening news he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. With the onset of the disease, walking 150 feet was a struggle and re quired Pelham to rest before moving on. Speech was difcult, and MS also caused daily fatigue, sensitivity to heat, short-term memory loss and an interruption of the thinking process. As a result of the disease, Pelham ap peared to be drunk while walking, even being stopped once by a policeman in a mall. Now, 20 years later, Pelham is mostly symptom free, and he attributes his healing to exercise and prayer. To get the message out about his struggle with MS, Pelham has written a book Im Not Drunk I Just Have MS. The book is available on the authors website and also at A Plus Health Mart Pharmacy in Bonifay. Pelham was born in Geneva, Ala., and raised in Boni fay. He graduated from Holmes County High School in 1963, then went to Tallahassee to Florida State Univer sity. After working as an accountant, he returned to FSU to attend law school, and had a successful career in real estate and law. Early on after I was diagnosed, I called a woman in Cleveland, Ohio, I had read about who had MS. She was a vice president of a university, and when I got her on the phone she said she had just spent four hours shovel ing snow, Pelham said. When asked how she was able to shovel snow when she had been severely limited by MS, she replied, I prayed each day, saying that when God was ready, he would take this from me. Pelham adopted her prayer, but added his own line: In the meantime, let me know what I need to do to facili tate the process. Another key to his recovery was exercise, Pelham said. When I was rst diagnosed, my general practi tioner told me to walk three or four times a week for at least 30 minutes, Pelham followed his doctors advice, although it wasnt always easy. When I started I could barely walk 150 feet. After 18 months, I walked a mile without resting. In the inter vening years, Pelham says he has walked about 8,000 miles, walking as much as 16 miles in a stretch. He still walks 3 miles every day. MS is a disease that is difcult to diagnose. There are many symptoms and often no two cases are alike, Pelham said. He developed small scars over his brain, which appeared in MRI scans. The scars interfered with the way the brain was able to communicate with the body. But by 2002, the scars had disappeared from the MRI scans. The doctors had no experience like it, nor did the specialists they talked to in Europe, Pelham said. One thing Pelham did not do was take the MS medica tions his doctor prescribed. I explain why in the book, but the medications have many serious side effects. I decided to write the book to encourage people not to give up, Pelham said. Three years ago he had been accepted to the University of Floridas Master of Law and Taxation program, but he decided to write his book instead of pursuing the advanced degree. Exercise is so crucial to health, but so is prayer and attitude, Pelham said. My book is not a recipe for a cure, but it is the story of my struggle with MS, an explanation of how it was for me. Now although Pelham is apparently healthy, he still suffers some symptoms when walking in extreme heat, and his doctors continue to monitor his health. Still he said he feels he has come a long way since his diagnosis in 1992. Prayer played a huge part in my recovery, my belief in God made a huge difference in my life, he said.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Page A6 OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Its no fun getting old, but the alterative isnt so good, either. This week I reach the big 6-5. When I was in my teens I thought anyone over 30 was old, and anyone in their 60s was discovered in an Egyptian tomb. How times have changed. Now anyone in their 80s is considered old or should I say lucky. I was trying to figure out just what the advantages of reaching 65 were aside from getting coffee at McDonalds for 60 cents a cup. Well, there are all sorts of bargains if you are willing to weed them out. One is that you dont need a saltwater fishing license once you turn 65. Mine was about to expire and I thought I had better get one before snapper season. Then I found out I didnt need a license after I reached 65. It just so happened my license expired a month before my birthday and snapper season opened June 1. I figured it was a shame to shell out the money to fish a year and to have it in force for only a month. I asked at the tag office if there was any kind of exemption in such cases, and sure enough there is one as long as you only fish freshwater. Anyway, other advantages of reaching 65 include never having to buy a hunting license again, or get a $25 quota permit to hunt wildlife management areas. Ill never have to purchase another freshwater fishing license. Ill never have to buy another turkey stamp or a black powder permit or another bow permit. As a matter of fact, the only permit I would have to buy is a federal duck stamp and I dont intend to ever hunt another duck. So, there are advantages to reaching 65. My friend added that on top of those I also can draw Social Security. I had to think about that one for a minute. No, I dont think so. Thats no great prize. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Jackson and other perched lakes functioning normally By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Its something thats happened countless times over the ages, but Lake Jackson is almost dry. About 18 months ago, the 4,000-acre lake north of Tallahassee began falling and little water now remains, except in isolated pools. Jackson last went dry in 2006, before that in 2002 and 1999. The culprit, if you want to call it that, is simple: lack of rainfall, according to Michael Hill, a sheries biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Tallahassee area was about 6 inches below normal rainfall in 2010, about 20 inches in 2011 and this year were already down 5-6 inches, Hill said. Just more than a week ago, he said there were about 10 acres of water in the middle part of the lake, which connects to Porter Sink and directly to the Floridan Aquifer. By Tuesday, almost all the water in the middle area of the lake went down Porter Sink. Hill said Lakes Jackson, Iamonia and Miccosukee are all perched lakes, which means the lake basins are above a thin limestone layer and the Floridan Aquifer. He said the sinks, including Porter Sink and lesser-known Lime Sink on Lake Jackson, are areas where the limestone far below the lake bed has simply dissolved or given away. When theres lots of rain and the water table is high, the sinks are still there in all of these perched lakes and functioning as a conduit to the Florida aquifer, Hill said. In 1938, he said those wanting to stabilize the lake level in Iamonia placed a dam around the primary sink. In the 1950s the same thing was done on Lake Miccosukee in Jefferson County. Since then, the gates to the Iamonia dam have been permanently removed. On Miccosukee, they have been temporarily removed to allow the lake bottom to dry out. What people didnt understand is when you stabilize the water levels, enormous amounts of organic matter settle on the bottom and this muck affects sh reproduction and depresses the amount of oxygen in the water, which game sh need, he said. Natural lake uctuations keep the lake bottoms free of excess muck and function another important way. When the lake bed is exposed for any time you get a lot of plants that germinate and grow. When lakes re ll, that covered vegetation fuels an incredible growth in microscopic plants and animals, which sh utilize, Hill said. Thats the reason you have such spectacular shing on these re lled lakes. Although people want to improve on Mother Nature, Hill said its best to wait for more normal rainfall patterns. By JESSICA BASHAM THERRIAULT Special to The News Herald Not everyone has a green backyard with bushes and trees. Florida is a peninsula, with the longest coastline of all states in the continental United States. Most of Floridas almost 19 million residents live less than 60 miles from the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, making the beach, sand and salt water their backyards. So lets go on a summer backyard beach safari. Begin your treasure hunt by shelling. Take a walk along the waters edge, and you will discover hundreds of varieties of shells hurled onto the beach by waves that roll or crash onto the shore. Seashells once were living organisms. The shell is the hard, protective outer part of an animal, usually a mollusk. Mollusks are animals such as scallops, snails, clams and oysters. These creatures make their own shell. When the animal dies or gets eaten by another creature, the empty shell stays empty or becomes a home to other sea critters like hermit crabs. Shelling provides hours of fun while looking for that one-of-a-kind, colorful treasure. Before you keep a shell, make sure there is nothing living in it. Otherwise you need a special license to keep it. Another activity is digging in the sand for coquinas (Ko-KEE-nahs) and mole crabs. Its easy to spend hours getting lost in the color and movement of coquinas and the squirms of mole crabs. Coquinas are tiny clams that live just below the surface of the sand where the waves roll in. Tides carry and deposit them along the shoreline, where they feed on microscopic organisms in the sand. They are a dazzling sight with wonderful colors, like tiny jewels. Sometimes you dont need to dig because incoming waves will unearth them. Watch as they furiously dig, seeking cover and food as each wave rolls back out to sea. Mole crabs are small and do not look like a typical crab, nor do they look like a mole. They are fast and will bury themselves quickly in an effort to hide. To nd one, dig gently in sand near the water, just as if you are looking for coquinas. As you dig, they might bury deeper into the sand but if you can get underneath one, then you can scoop it up. They might tickle you, but dont worry; they do not bite. Be gentle, because they are soft and fragile. When you are nished observing the crab gently place it back into the soft, wet sand. Bird-watching is another fun activity. Gulls live on the beach and are known to swoop in to steal your food. Pesky as they might be, they are still fun to watch. Other birds to watch at the beach are pelicans. Pelicans glide just above the waters surface, and then SPLOOSH! They dive into the water headrst to grab a shy meal. Its also fun to look for bird tracks in the wet sand. Can you identify the tracks you nd? Do not chase the birds to make them y. Simply watch and admire their behavior. While on your safari, be sure to wear sunscreen so you can avoid sunburn, and have fun this summer.

The win at Sonoma gave him two rsts. It was his rst career win during a road race, and it was his rst win of the 2012 season. Bowyer lead 70 of the 112 laps, holding off Kurt Busch for most of the race. Bowyer and Busch held this placing until the last lap under a green/ white checkered, when Tony Stewart took the second place slot from Busch. This was the second straight week Stewart won second. Jeff Gordons luck was just the same as it has been for the last several weeks bad. This week it wasnt due to engine problems or anything major, he simply ran out of gas. Gordon managed to get a sixth-place nish. Maybe his luck will change in Kentucky. For the second week in a row, Marcos Ambrose was the pole sitter at the start, and he nished eighth. With only two caution ags, the race wasnt what some NASCAR fans wanted to see. On lap 42, Josh Wise spun out but was able to save it without bringing out a caution. As lap 48 came and went, it marked the longest race time without a caution. The rst caution didnt come until lap 82 when Tomy Drissi crashed. The second and nal caution came as Kyle Busch, Juan Montoya and Paul Menard spun out on the track. There were three rounds of green ag pit stops the rst was on laps 34-37, then again on laps 49-52, the last round of green ag pit stops were on laps 69-76.

Local Wednesday, June 27, 2012 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCNHCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Driving from coast to coast in an electric car built by the hands of at-risk high school teens sounds like a risky proposition, but that is the purpose of MINDDRIVE. MINDDRIVE made a presentation at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center on June 20. The project is an after-school program to teach at-risk high school teens the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business. They started their journey on June 11 in San Diego and drive an average of 250 miles per day. They arrived in Jacksonville on June 21. The of cial name of their tour is Project Lotus. These kids took a 1984 Lotus Esprit and totally converted into an electric vehicle, said Richard Stephen Rees, DeLaSalle Automotive Studio instructor and mentor. Her body has been modi ed to make her more lightweight and aerodynamic and is powered by 30 Lithium Ion batteries totaling 96 volts and has a chain-drive motor. According to Rees, in spite of what people may think about electric cars, this car can travel at conservative highway speed, and their hope is it will achieve maximum energy conservation ef ciency. So far were averaging over 400 miles to the gallon, if we were to compare gasoline to electricity usage per mile, Rees said. If we could have electric re lling stations similar to a Sonic drive-in set up across the country, imagine the positive impact electric cars could make not only on the environment, but on the fuel economy too. Our goal is to give the students the tools to process creative thinking, see the potential for realizing dreams in a successful and practical future and instill a greater desire to learn by connecting the process to real life skills, Rees said. The program is unique in that it pairs an experienced automotive mentor with each student. Rees said at the core of the program are highly applicable education concepts such as science, technology, engineering, mathematics, reading and history. MINDDRIVE will continue the principle objectives that primarily taught the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business, Rees said. I attribute much of the programs success to the astounding principles provided by our programs mentors. He said the main focus of MINDDRIVE is about the educational experience that can be provided for the students. The teaching process is unique, pairing one student to one adult mentor, not always one on one, but in a way that allows the students a direct connection to individual adults, Rees said. The highly capable, well educated adults who work carefully to create windows that the students can work within to make decisions themselves in designing and fabricating the project vehicles. The work has been focused to two primary directives: the design of the ultra light body and the electrical propulsion system. This project also connects the students with the real world by working on important environmental issues and the future increased demand for an alternative fuel source, Rees explained. They are learning to understand and breakdown the creative process and learn how to communicate as a team to make progress in an ef cient way to meet schedules, Rees said. In the end, the work will be evaluated to see how it met its challenge and how scienti cally it performs. Rees said that all of the mentors in their program have experience as youth educators, whether through schools or through activities like coaching sports and Boy Scouts. They all understand the project is that of the students and that they are but enablers, Rees said. Their project before Project Lotus was Project Lola, which was the design and fabrication of a working automobile. The design is based on using a rolling platform of a 2000 Lola Indy Car, and the platform has a working suspension, working brakes, steering and structural tub, Rees said. The tub is a proven ultra strong passenger envelope of the racing car. Rees said the project required minimum modi cations to the platform with primary work related to the design of an electric propulsion system and a lightweight exterior skin turning the open wheeled racecar into a full-bodied car. The car was designed to travel at 60 miles per hour at a maximum and be able to operate for an hour between charges, Rees said. Its a single seat urban alternative energy vehicle and because of its minimal weight of 1,300 pounds it shows how simplicity and lighter weight can in uence performance and energy conservation.

WHAT IS MINDDRIVE A non-pro t organization whose mission statement is to inspire at-risk teens to want to learn by expanding their vision for the future, and to transform and sustain the urban work force. The expanded mission includes working in urban communities with teens on green technology and innovation through critical thinking and experiential learning. Projects include building unique electric cars, teaching ef ciency dynamics and innovative aerodynamics, integrating with school curriculum in math, science and history, counseling students on career paths, and securing positions for them in like-minded industries within their urban community. As a not-for-pro t organization, MINDDRIVE aims to create partnerships with corporations that have similar goals, values and community outreach connections. An important aspect of the class is the proprietary student/mentoring program. MINDDRIVE uses a one-on-one mentor to student ratio. Mentors work with the students in educational and socio-economic ways, creating a bonding relationship that is critical to both the learning process and the enhancement of the students vision for their future. Steve Rees founded the organization after teaching a class at DeLaSalle Education Center, a charter school in Kansas City for three years. Linda Buchner and Tom Strongman are partners.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Evacuating when a hurricane hits the coast is a stressful and scary experience, especially when evacuating with horses. Though tornadoes give little warning for evacuation, hurricanes can give enough lead time to actually move people and horses out of the storms expected path. But even with that time, preparation can be crucial to the survival of horses. Dr. William Moyer, professor and special assistant to the dean at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, offers a series of suggestions for evacuating with horses. Take the threat seriously, Moyer said. You need to make the decision to leave as soon as you can. If you wait until the last minute, youre placing yourself and your horse in harms way. Over 100,000 animals were lost during Hurricane Ike. He suggested owners make sure their trailers are road-worthy before hurricane season begins or identify someone with reliable trucks and trailers who can transport horses for them. Another important aspect of evacuating horses is ensuring your horses are comfortable with loading. Working with your horses ahead of time is particularly important if a neighbor or friend will be transporting your horse because ill-behaved horses can waste valuable evacuation time or refusal of transport. Evacuation trafc is often slow and crowded, creating a dangerous situation for trailered horses. You are often forced to move quite slowly, Moyer said. Filling up on gas or diesel before entering trafc is imperative and can keep you out of situations where your animal might overheat or become dehydrated should you run out of fuel. Moyer advised identifying evacuation destinations. While moving inland during a hurricane is important, nding a specic place to go is best. During hurricane Ike, we sheltered 166 horses through a cooperative agreement with a local livestock arena operation. The degree of planning for resources, personnel and scheduling regular care can be daunting. He suggested creating an evacuation kit with a brief and well documented health history, a list of behavior peculiarities (if applicable), a rst aid kit, cash, appropriate health documentation, enough food and adequate, safe water supplies for about four days, and any necessary medicine for chronic or pre-existing illnesses. Owners also need to ensure the appropriate health documentation accompanies the horse. An up-to-date Coggins test is necessary, particularly if crossing state lines. Moyer suggested making sure you have these papers organized before hurricane season. In addition to required documentation, vaccinations also are suggested. Because evacuating can be a stressful time, vaccinations can help decrease the likelihood of several diseases, Moyer said. Mosquitoes can be a huge problem during hurricane season, and moving them around coastal areas can expose them to new areas of infestation and diseases. Also, prepare current paper and electronic copies of pictures of your horse for reclaiming purposes, particularly if the horse isnt tattooed or branded. Ideally, these would include a picture of the owner and the horse together to ensure ownership, Moyer said. If you cannot evacuate your horse or are forced to leave part of your herd behind, some precautions can help you reunite with your horse. Keeping photographs can help, but also attaching identication information to the horses body can be useful. Braiding information wrapped in plastic to horses manes and tails can help. Livestock paint works well to put identication information on the body, and its waterproof. Or even taking a pair of clippers and shaving your contact information into the animals hair can help you reunite with your horse when you return. In addition to preparing your horse for evacuation, Moyer also suggested preparing yourself. Have a personal evacuation plan, too. You have to take care of yourself rst to be able to take care of your horse. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Unless I win the lottery, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States then to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks, and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy. After all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money, but then I thought about whats involved, and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers, all they can talk about is money, speci cally, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years, and I know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher, I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping, and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this, and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political of ce. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea. For all the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow. Rev. James L.

This Message Courtesy of Give Expecting Nothing in Return The saying Beware of Greeks bearing gifts is an old piece of wisdom which advises us to not trust our enemies, after the story in the Iliad of the Trojan horse, a gift that ultimately destroyed the city of Troy and its inhabitants. But there was also another reason to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, and that was that they always expected something in return, of comparable value. Gift-giving in ancient cultures was meant to be reciprocated and this carries over to modern times. But, a true gift should be something freely given without any expectation of re turn. If there is an expectation of a comparable return then we are really bartering rather than giving. So, we should give with a spirit of genuine charity, not expecting any thing in return. Test your ability to give in this spirit by giving anonymously, so that the recipient wont know who it came from. This isnt always practical, but can sometimes be done by sending someone an anonymous gift through the mail or by arranging for an intermediary to give the gift for you, perhaps even allowing the intermediary to take credit for the gift. Wanting to be thanked for a gift is all about our ego, and while it is only natural to desire thanks, it is better to give expecting nothing in return.

HHarry HHamilton CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCNHCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY City Auditor Hilton Galloway of CRI gave the City of Boni fay a positive report on Monday, in forming the council that the city is in good nancial standing and is looking to improve over the next year, if not longer. The city has got the huge ben et of a lot of grant revenue for city improvements, said Galloway. Not to mention you should be set for the next 40 to 50 years with the new sewer treatment plant as well as money saved from the cost of repairs to the water and sewer lines. Galloway also praised the coun cil on their wise and sound nancial investments through government bonds with more then ve years on them to mature. This gives you a chance to actu ally be able to wait until they come to full maturity so that you can receive full benets of the investment, said Galloway. It helps that youve re ceived more money in grants than in payouts and you have no violations in grant compliance. I cant say that the city is completely healthy, but its one of the few cities that can say they arent in a state of deteriorating nan cial condition. Galloway said the only concern was that the funds they were receiv ing for water and sewer was only at 71 percent, when it should be at least at 90 percent. We wont know whats causing that for sure until the new sewer treatment plant and system is complete, said Galloway. For all we know it might be contributed by the continual repair work going on to the water lines. The council approved to recent their contract bid to Royal American Construction for the CDBG Water System Improvements project due to previous complications in the bidding process. When the bids were rst placed, Gulf Coast Utility Contractors was the lowest bidder and would be the obvi ous bid for Bonifay, but a last minute adjustment made Royal American Construction the lowest bidder. Af ter much discussion Royal American Construction was approved of as the lowest bidder.

Circuit Court Judge Chris Patterson ruled the city violated the states Sun shine Laws during the exec utive session held on April 23 to update new city council members and the mayor on pending litigation. The bottom line is the whole purpose of govern ing in the sunshine is so the public knows what is hap pening with their governing ofcials, Patterson said. Although elected ofcials are allowed to go into execu tive session for the reason cited by the citys attorney Kerry Adkison, the law out lines strict regulations for how the session must begin, and it requires the govern ing body to reconvene in public and formally end the executive session. Randal Seyler, manag ing editor of the Washing ton County News, testied he doesnt know whether the meeting ever actually ended. Patterson said he was moved by that statement, and asked rhetorically if the meeting was ongoing. The Sunshine Laws also require a transcript of the meeting be led within a reasonable amount of time. The transcript becomes public after the pending liti gation ends. The city has not led a transcript. Patterson said he had to strictly interpret the states open meeting law, and based on evidence presented the

that Coatney, 47, shot and killed his wife, 41-year-old Tammie Renae Coatney, and then shot and killed himself. Authorities reported that a juvenile witnessed the murder-suicide. Records from the Hol mes County Courthouse do not reveal a history of domestic violence and fam ily and neighbors described the couple to be quiet and easy going. Facebook condolences ooded onto the wall of Tammie Coatneys children on Thursday afternoon, re membering Tammie as a wonderful woman who could always make people laugh and someone who could always make any one feel welcome at the Caryville Baptist Church. The Coatneys were close friends, said a neigh bor. Im just worried about the boy; his mom and dad are both gone. Right now hes surrounded by people try ing to show him some love.  Flowing Well Road resi dent Wayne Albury heard a shot when he was out pick ing peas in his garden. I only heard one bullet, Albury said. Next thing I saw the police and the am bulance go by. While Albury didnt know the Coatneys, he said his late wife knew them well. A resident of the area for 33 years, Albury said he has seen the neighbor hood change slowly over the years. Weve had some prob lems here, Albury said. You know, kids, drugs. You cant seem to stay away from that these days. Funeral services were held for Tammie Renae Coatney at 3 p.m. on Mon day at Church of Jesus Christ in Caryville, with the Rev. Edward Williams ofciating. Interment fol lowed in the Caryville City Cemetery with Peel Funeral Home of Bonifay directing. Family received friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Peel Funeral Home.

IN BRIEF from page A1 INVESTIGATION from page A1 ANd D REW WaWA Rd D LOW | The News HeraldLaw enforcement ofcers work the scene where two people were shot and killed in Holmes County on Thursday.Florida Statutes Section 120.57. City Attorney Lucas Tay lor advised that the council rescind the bid, reject all other bids and then rebid the project, which the grant allowed. For the cost of $2,000 the Council approved to reject all bids and then re-bid the project at no cost to those whove already placed their bid to the project once again and giving new bidders 14 days to place their bids, put ting the end date at July 13. A Bonifay resident came in complaining about his neighbors goats. What with the hot sum mer weather coming and theres these goats with all their feces in the back yard and their natural goat smell the odor alone is unbear able, he said. If shes al lowed to keep goats I should be allowed to have a cow to eat my grass, give me milk and pull me around in my wheelchair. Something needs to be done, because theres more then just goats, its cats and dogs and all those feces together is just unbearable. Council member Roger Brooks rst motioned that the police chief remove the goats and then he rescinded the vote to request that the attorney look into a nui sance ordinance they could enforce. Brooks also requested that Varner Street be re paired because it was sink ing in the middle. David and Vicky Guthrie of Healing Palms Hyperbar ics requested reprieve from the city for the impact fees billed to them, which was $900 for water tap and hookup fees and $1,800 impact fee for sewer. The owners attributed their inability to pay to the poor nancial situation theyve found themselves in due to lack of revenue and offered to pay the $900 for the water tap and hook-up. The council approved waiving the sewer impact fees for two years and then bill them $900 a year for two years for the remaining $1,800. The next Bonifay City Council meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on July 9 at the Bonifay City Hall. AAUDITOR from page A1 LAWSUIT from page A1city did not follow those regulations. We appreciate Judge Pattersons recognition of the importance of pub lic record laws that are intended to generate condence in workings of government and in the application in this case of the city of Vernon and not complying with those laws, said Washington County News Publisher Nicole Bareeld. Access to public re cords and governing in the sunshine are the foundation for trust and ac countability for actions taken by our elected ofcials. Adkison argued because the city council did not take any ofcial action, the executive session did not consti tute a meeting and was not subject to the Sunshine Laws. He also suggest ed the discussion should be covered by attorney-client privilege. Patterson disagreed the meet ing was exempt from the law, but he is giving Adkison the opportunity to argue the transcripts of the meeting contain privileged information. He ordered the transcripts be turned over to attorneys for Wash ington County News and its parent company, Freedom Communications, within 10 days. He is giving an addi tional 10 days for Adkison to argue why the information should not im mediately be made public. Adkison said after the hearing he is going to comply with the judges or der to turn over the transcript, but no decision has been made about wheth er he will argue against making the document public. The lawsuit was led in late May after weeks of failed attempts to get the city to respond to or discuss a pub lic records request with The News or its attorney.

Does my home have to be free and clear? No. Many people get a Reverse Mortgage to pay off their current mortgage or equity thereby eliminating those monthly payments. Q3. How much money can I receive? Three factors are taken into consideration: Date of birth of the youngest person on the title, your zip code and the value of your home. Q4. Is the money I receive taxable? No. The IRS treats these funds as borrowed money. This is a loan, not income. Q5. What happens to my home when I pass away? The loan is repaid to the lender through the sale or refinancing of your home by your heirs. Any proceeds in excess of the amount owed to the lender belong to your heirs. You only pay for the funds you used plus interest. Q6. What if I dont use all the money? You and yours heirs are required to pay back ONLY the outstanding balance that is due. Any money remaining after the mortgage is paid, regardless of the home value, goes to your heirs. Q7. Can I be forced to sell or vacate my home if the loan amount exceeds the value of my home?

Special to the NewsBONIFAY The Holmes County Tobacco-Free Partnership, Tobacco Free Holmes, continues to partner with Holmes County citizens and local employers to provide resources for individuals who desire to quit using tobacco products. Dogwood Inn, one of Bonifays assisted living facilities, is helping to lead the way to a healthier Holmes County. Management at the Dogwood Inn recently partnered with the Holmes County Tobacco Prevention Program to develop and implement a new and improved tobacco use policy. As a multi-unit housing facility, Dogwood Inn is striving to improve the health of tobacco users and nontobacco users alike. The updated tobacco use policy will require all tenants and guests to use tobacco products in a specic tobacco use area away from the general living areas. This will reduce and eliminate the health risks of second and third-hand smoke from smokers and also keep high trafc areas more sanitary with the reduction in smokeless tobacco usage. For tobacco users, Dogwood Inn will provide free tobacco cessation materials and training for any tenants or employees. The Holmes County Tobacco Prevention plans on partnering with Big Bend AHEC (Area Health Education Center) to provide cessation classes at the Dogwood Inn. These classes would also be open to the public. To learn how to Quit Smoking Now, participate in Big Bend AHECs free, upcoming cessation classes at Doctors Memorial Hospital starting at 5 p.m. on July 11.

Furr and Jacqueline FurrFrom Staff ReportsWASHINGTON COUNTY This public service announcement is to advise that there have been increased cases of wild animals with rabies. In April and May, two cases of rabies in raccoons were conrmed. The two raccoons were found around the Wausau area. Last week, a fox attacked two people in Vernon, biting one, who will begin receiving rabies shots this week. Bay County has been under a rabies alert for most of the past year. Anyone who has been bitten, scratched or had mucous membrane contact (such as eyes, nose, or mouth) with a raccoon, fox, or other wild animal should contact the health department in their county (Washington County Health Department 638-6240, Holmes County Health Department 547-8500). The following are steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against rabies: If you are bitten by an animal, wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water and seek medical attention immediately. Report the bite to your county health department and animal control agency. Keep rabies vaccinations up-to-date for all pets. Keep your pets under direct supervision, so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If a wild animal bites your pet, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact your local county health department. The numbers are listed above. Do not handle, feed or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans, litter, or pet food. Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home. Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly. Unusual acting animals should be reported to the Washington County Animal Control at 638-6306. Anyone bitten or scratched by wild animals or stray dogs and cats should report the incident to their doctor immediately, and the animal control agency and the county health department in their area.Special to the Times-AdvertiserHOLMES COUNTY Holmes County was recently presented with the Best Overall Safety Performance Award for 2012 from Public Risk Management.

Due to nancial reasons, the Poplar Springs Beta Club was unable to secure a charter bus to this years National Junior Beta Convention, so the parents volunteered to provide transportation and requested that the HCSD approve the travel changes. Board member Gary Scott inquired about using personal vehicles for school-sanctioned trips. After much discussion they found that personal vehicles were allowed and covered under the school boards insurance as long as each vehicle meets the schools requirements as a safe and insured vehicle and all the proper documentation has been led before the trip. The board approved of the new travel arrangements pending that all the required measures have been met to do so. Discussion continued on to sports travel as well as after school activities. We want to be consistent in all our policies, Superintendent Gary Galloway said. This was an excellent opportunity for us to evaluate our policies from a practical standpoint, and now I feel we should arrange to hold evaluations with all the schools to see how our policies are being enforced. The board also approved the hiring of two technology assistants, Lee Gilley and Shane Schiller, to work from July 9 to Aug. 9, to be paid by the RTT Grant; the hire Mary Dady for ESE Summer School; the transfer Odell Paul from GAP to Bonifay Middle School; the transfer Stephanie Williams from Bonifay Elementary School to BMS; maternity leave for Anna Taylor, a teacher at Poplar Springs, beginning Aug. 10 and ending June 10, 2013; resignations from Aileen Mork, teacher at BES and effective July 31, Cheryl West, teacher at Bethlehem High School.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out and supported us in our fundraiser ( sh fry and grilled chicken plates) this past Saturday, June 23. We had a very successful event thanks to the support received from our community. If I tried to thank everyone individually I would surely miss someone, but the key people I would like to say thank you to for the donations received are the local businesses in Bonifay and the New Hope Fire Department for loaning the decorations. Also, thank you to the ladies and men in the community who gave of their time to supply the side items as well as the desserts and to all the volunteers who gave of their time to cook the sh, chicken. Again thank you! Sincerely,Alfred SellersAssistant Chief Pittman VFD Bonifay Sometimes, when I dont have a story, a story comes to me. Many times, about Thursday of the week, I am thinking about what I will write for my Friday deadline and often, I draw a blank. With blueberry season in full swing, this week I was seriously considering emailing the editor and saying, Pull one from the archives. But then, I drove up to the blueberry shed with some U-Pickers on the golf cart, and there was my story. Two guys looking very hot and exhausted were wiping sweat and purchasing a carton of blueberries. My husband said, These two have ridden their bicycles all the way from Chattanooga, Tenn. I said, Oh, great! There is my story. They cooled off a bit while I got my camera and writing pad. The two were Mr. Paul Roland and his grandson, Alex Roland. The third member of their party, Pauls son and Alexs dad Todd, had left his backpack at the Florida state line above Esto when they stopped to make pictures of their reaching Florida. He had backtracked to pick up his backpack. (Hope he hadnt ridden too far when he remembered it and that it was still there.) Paul, a retired actuary, and Todd, a high school chemistry teacher, had biked the entire distance from Chattanooga since last Friday (six days ago), but Alex had contracted a bug the rst day and had to be picked up so he rejoined the ride on the fth day. Mr. Roland rst visited Panama City Beach in 1965, and the family has been visiting there for many years, where they hold a large family reunion every two years. But their extended family come every year to visit, and for the past 10 years, Tison Blueberry Farm has been one of their regular stops. When asked what prompted them to attempt the bike journey, grandfather Paul said it was Alexs idea. However, Alex, who will be in 10th grade next year, said it was kind of a challenge he made to his dad. He said that his dad was always suggesting preposterous things that they should try to do, but bicycling to Panama City Beach was something that he saw that they could actually do, so he dared the two older men to give a go. I asked if they trained for the trip, and the grandfather admitted that he had been training for about two months. The son and grandson ride regularly on Schwinn combination road and mountain bikes, but Mr. Rolands was a Giant speed bike. For their trip, they used light back packs and saddle bags on the bikes, keeping the weight to ten pounds, mostly water. One mistake they made, he said, was passing up an opportunity to get water when they were maybe half empty. Then, they ran out of water on a long stretch of highway where none was available. They were so thirsty, they pulled into someones yard. The kind gentleman invited them into his home where it was cool to re ll their bottles. He said that all along the way, there were no unpleasant incidents. Drivers had been very courteous, giving them plenty of room as they passed. No one shouted insults or threw trash at them. Their nights have been spent in motels. After traveling from Troy, Ala., Thursday, they were to spend the night in a Bonifay motel then travel on to the beach on Friday. They expected to be there in time to have lunch with their wives who were already there. We expect to see them on their return trip by automobile the end of next week. Through the years weve met a lot of interesting people through the blueberry business. Though we never travel far from home, the world has been brought to our yard through the blueberry business. Too bad I havent kept a journal so that I could write about more of them. Bicyclists provide Corner this weekHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison LETTER TO THE EDITOR SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERPaul Roland and his grandson Alex Roland are riding their bicycles from Chattanooga, Tenn., to Panama City Beach.I got my rst taste of watermelon, Panhandle-style this weekend, and I have to say I was impressed. I wasnt crazy about the humidity Friday night, but in spite of the weather I thought the 56th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival was a great event. I was impressed by the musical performances on Friday night, and also impressed by the large number of people who braved the weather to come enjoy the festivities. Between tropical storm Debby and the typical summer humidity, everyone looked fairly soggy after an hour or so at Pals Park Friday. And soggy though they might have been, most festival goers also looked happy. All in all, the festival seemed to move along without a hitch, which is a great testament to the men and women who volunteer behind the scenes. Something as wonderful as the Watermelon Festival doesnt just happen. It takes dozens of volunteers working for months in advance to make an event like the festival happen. And for it to happen so smoothly, well, that takes an expert hand and lots of hard work. Washington County Judge Colby Peel, chairman of the festival, and his volunteers deserve a big thank you for their efforts, so the next time you see one these volunteers be sure to thank them for their efforts.Watermelon Festival soggy but fun RANDAL SEYLEREditorGrandfather-father-son trio pass through local blueberry farm

LocalWednesday, June 27, 2012 Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 I have been specializing in the Special to the NewsNEW YORK ABM, a leading provider of integrated facility solutions, announced June 19 its ABM Building Solutions division is partnering with Washington-Holmes Technical Center in Chipley to provide the higher education institution with major energy upgrades through its Bundled Energy Solutions Program. The initiative is expected to save Washington-Holmes Technical Center an estimated $2 million. ABMs Bundled Energy Solutions Program has been designed as a nancial solution to meet clients technical facility needs. ABMs goal is to drive costs out of clients operating budgets in a manner that allows them to reallocate funding for other facility enhancements. The project, which is scheduled to be completed by August of this year, will reduce energy consumption on Washington-Holmes Technical Centers 26-acre campus by over one million kWh per year. Along with signicant utility and operating savings, ABM is set to offer students in the schools building trades program hands-on experience with the project. This innovative concept was a compelling bonus for the Washington-Holmes administration, as students will be allowed to walk through ABMs tested and proven solutions. The process will include a eld survey to challenge students to identify opportunities, note potential alterations that are code compliant, and create solutions alongside ABM to improve the campus efciency. This is a wonderful opportunity to provide our students with career and technical training that can better prepare them for a competitive workplace, Martha Compton, director of Washington-Holmes Technical Center, said. The students are an intricate part of the process and will benet greatly from this learning experience. It is this type of outsidethe-box thinking that we must promote moving forward. What could be better than nding a practical way to help our students learn while improving our facility? Key renovations ABM is set to provide the 15 buildings on campus include retrotting light xtures with new high-efciency T-8 uorescent lamps and ballasts; renovating exhaust systems in certain buildings for improved air circulation; installation of a campus-wide, web-based HVAC control system, allowing the school to better manage energy use as well as notify appropriate staff should any problems arise with the equipment; and 63 HVAC units will be replaced with high-efciency equipment that exceeds a Seasonal Energy Efciency Ratio (SEER) of 15. Additionally, ABM will be installing a high-efciency 10kW solar panel system that is being donated by local utility provider Gulf Power Company, headquartered in Pensacola. Through our partnership with Washington-Holmes Technical Center, we are able to provide the students a unique learning experience by involving them in the energy-efciency improvements, President of ABM Building and Energy Solutions Scott Giacobbe said. By teaching the students how to make their school more efcient, safe and sustainable, we are helping to develop leaders within the next generation of eld technicians.

Annette Lanham, a master food volunteer who works with the county extension ofce to teach pressure canning and food preservation classes in Washington and Holmes counties, is working to reopen the center under the auspices of the extension ofce. Lanham addressed the Washington County Board of County Commissioners Thursday and presented her plans for the canning center. It is too late to do anything this year, but I hope we can have the center open for 2013, Lanham told the commissioners. In each of the ve classes weve taught this year, students have asked about the status of the canning center, expressing an interest in utilizing the facility, she said. Its my desire to see the canning center reopened, and I have been researching what it would take to make that happen. Lanham said the center was last open for an entire season in 2009, under the direction of the Tri-County Community Council. In 2010 the center was open on a limited basis, and in 2011 it was by appointment only. The centers boiler is no longer functioning, and the expense to repair it is estimated at being more than $30,000. An estimate from the naval facility in Panama City, where the center had hoped to nd an economical replacement boiler, turned out to be about $17,000, Lanham said. I have researched options for removing the boiler altogether, replacing the steam canners with conventional stove-top canners and operating the canning center on propane, Lanham said. Removal of the boiler will alleviate the requirement to have a trained boiler operator on-site. Retrotting costs would be considerably less than the $37,000 boiler replacement estimate. Lanham asked the commissioners to consider funding the center with a $5,000 budget line-item next year. The BOCC used to send money to Tri-County earmarked for the canning center, she said, and the money could be used to reopen the center. I plan on going to the city councils in Chipley, Wausau, Vernon and Ebro and asking them for funding, too, she said. The city of Vernon owns the canning center building, but the building currently has no liability insurance coverage. The city is looking into adding the facility to its municipal coverage, Lanham said. Tri-County has also taken equipment from the center, but they have agreed to return most of it if the center can be reopened, Lanham said, including a pea-sheller and a potato-peeler. Ive been looking for a pea-sheller, Sheriff Bobby Haddock said. Id like to see if we couldnt work something out that would be benecial to both the center and the county. There you have it, Chairman Hulan Carter joked. The sheriff is going to fund it.Energy program to save WHTC $2 millionCanning Center topic of BOCC discussion By teaching the students how to make their school more efcient, safe and sustainable, we are helping to develop leaders within the next generation of eld technicians.Scott Giacobbe President of ABM Building and Energy SolutionsBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY In 1992, Tallahassee attorney and Bonifay native Bruce Pelham received frightening n ews   he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. With the onset of the disease, walking 150 feet was a struggle and required Pelham to rest before moving on. Speech was difcult, and MS also caused daily fatigue, sensitivity to heat, short-term memory loss and an interruption of the thinking process. As a result of the disease, Pelham appeared to be drunk while walking, even being stopped once by a policeman in a mall. Now, 20 years later, Pelham is mostly symptom free, and he attributes his healing to exercise and prayer. To get the message out about his struggle with MS, Pelham has written a book Im Not Drunk I Just Have MS. The book is available on the authors website and also at A Plus Health Mart Pharmacy in Bonifay. Pelham was born in Geneva, Ala., and raised in Bonifay. He graduated from Holmes County High School in 1963, then went to Tallahassee to Florida State University. After working as an accountant, he returned to FSU to attend law school, and had a successful career in real estate and law. Early on after I was diagnosed, I called a woman in Cleveland, Ohio, I had read about who had MS. She was a vice president of a university, and when I got her on the phone she said she had just spent four hours shoveling snow, Pelham said. When asked how she was able to shovel snow when she had been severely limited by MS, she replied, I prayed each day, saying that when God was ready, he would take this from me. Pelham adopted her prayer, but added his own line: In the meantime, let me know what I need to do to facilitate the process. Another key to his recovery was exercise, Pelham said. When I was rst diagnosed, my general practitioner told me to walk three or four times a week for at least 30 minutes, Pelham followed his doctors advice, although it wasnt always easy. When I started I could barely walk 150 feet. After 18 months, I walked a mile without resting. In the intervening years, Pelham says he has walked about 8,000 miles, walking as much as 16 miles in a stretch. He still walks 3 miles every day. MS is a disease that is difcult to diagnose. There are many symptoms and often no two cases are alike, Pelham said. He developed small scars over his brain, which appeared in MRI scans. The scars interfered with the way the brain was able to communicate with the body. But by 2002, the scars had disappeared from the MRI scans. The doctors had no experience like it, nor did the specialists they talked to in Europe, Pelham said. One thing Pelham did not do was take the MS medications his doctor prescribed. I explain why in the book, but the medications have many serious side effects. I decided to write the book to encourage people not to give up, Pelham said. Three years ago he had been accepted to the University of Floridas Master of Law and Taxation program, but he decided to write his book instead of pursuing the advanced degree. Exercise is so crucial to health, but so is prayer and attitude, Pelham said. My book is not a recipe for a cure, but it is the story of my struggle with MS, an explanation of how it was for me. Now although Pelham is apparently healthy, he still suffers some symptoms when walking in extreme heat, and his doctors continue to monitor his health. Still he said he feels he has come a long way since his diagnosis in 1992. Prayer played a huge part in my recovery, my belief in God made a huge difference in my life, he said.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Page A6 OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Its no fun getting old, but the alterative isnt so good, either. This week I reach the big 6-5. When I was in my teens I thought anyone over 30 was old, and anyone in their 60s was discovered in an Egyptian tomb. How times have changed. Now anyone in their 80s is considered old or should I say lucky. I was trying to figure out just what the advantages of reaching 65 were aside from getting coffee at McDonalds for 60 cents a cup. Well, there are all sorts of bargains if you are willing to weed them out. One is that you dont need a saltwater fishing license once you turn 65. Mine was about to expire and I thought I had better get one before snapper season. Then I found out I didnt need a license after I reached 65. It just so happened my license expired a month before my birthday and snapper season opened June 1. I figured it was a shame to shell out the money to fish a year and to have it in force for only a month. I asked at the tag office if there was any kind of exemption in such cases, and sure enough there is one as long as you only fish freshwater. Anyway, other advantages of reaching 65 include never having to buy a hunting license again, or get a $25 quota permit to hunt wildlife management areas. Ill never have to purchase another freshwater fishing license. Ill never have to buy another turkey stamp or a black powder permit or another bow permit. As a matter of fact, the only permit I would have to buy is a federal duck stamp and I dont intend to ever hunt another duck. So, there are advantages to reaching 65. My friend added that on top of those I also can draw Social Security. I had to think about that one for a minute. No, I dont think so. Thats no great prize. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netJackson and other perched lakes functioning normally By STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Its something thats happened countless times over the ages, but Lake Jackson is almost dry. About 18 months ago, the 4,000-acre lake north of Tallahassee began falling and little water now remains, except in isolated pools. Jackson last went dry in 2006, before that in 2002 and 1999. The culprit, if you want to call it that, is simple: lack of rainfall, according to Michael Hill, a sheries biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Tallahassee area was about 6 inches below normal rainfall in 2010, about 20 inches in 2011 and this year were already down 5-6 inches, Hill said. Just more than a week ago, he said there were about 10 acres of water in the middle part of the lake, which connects to Porter Sink and directly to the Floridan Aquifer. By Tuesday, almost all the water in the middle area of the lake went down Porter Sink. Hill said Lakes Jackson, Iamonia and Miccosukee are all perched lakes, which means the lake basins are above a thin limestone layer and the Floridan Aquifer. He said the sinks, including Porter Sink and lesser-known Lime Sink on Lake Jackson, are areas where the limestone far below the lake bed has simply dissolved or given away. When theres lots of rain and the water table is high, the sinks are still there in all of these perched lakes and functioning as a conduit to the Florida aquifer, Hill said. In 1938, he said those wanting to stabilize the lake level in Iamonia placed a dam around the primary sink. In the 1950s the same thing was done on Lake Miccosukee in Jefferson County. Since then, the gates to the Iamonia dam have been permanently removed. On Miccosukee, they have been temporarily removed to allow the lake bottom to dry out. What people didnt understand is when you stabilize the water levels, enormous amounts of organic matter settle on the bottom and this muck affects sh reproduction and depresses the amount of oxygen in the water, which game sh need, he said. Natural lake uctuations keep the lake bottoms free of excess muck and function another important way. When the lake bed is exposed for any time you get a lot of plants that germinate and grow. When lakes re ll, that covered vegetation fuels an incredible growth in microscopic plants and animals, which sh utilize, Hill said. Thats the reason you have such spectacular shing on these re lled lakes. Although people want to improve on Mother Nature, Hill said its best to wait for more normal rainfall patterns. By JESSICA BASHAM THERRIAULTSpecial to The News Herald Not everyone has a green backyard with bushes and trees. Florida is a peninsula, with the longest coastline of all states in the continental United States. Most of Floridas almost 19 million residents live less than 60 miles from the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, making the beach, sand and salt water their backyards. So lets go on a summer backyard beach safari. Begin your treasure hunt by shelling. Take a walk along the waters edge, and you will discover hundreds of varieties of shells hurled onto the beach by waves that roll or crash onto the shore. Seashells once were living organisms. The shell is the hard, protective outer part of an animal, usually a mollusk. Mollusks are animals such as scallops, snails, clams and oysters. These creatures make their own shell. When the animal dies or gets eaten by another creature, the empty shell stays empty or becomes a home to other sea critters like hermit crabs. Shelling provides hours of fun while looking for that one-of-a-kind, colorful treasure. Before you keep a shell, make sure there is nothing living in it. Otherwise you need a special license to keep it. Another activity is digging in the sand for coquinas (Ko-KEE-nahs) and mole crabs. Its easy to spend hours getting lost in the color and movement of coquinas and the squirms of mole crabs. Coquinas are tiny clams that live just below the surface of the sand where the waves roll in. Tides carry and deposit them along the shoreline, where they feed on microscopic organisms in the sand. They are a dazzling sight with wonderful colors, like tiny jewels. Sometimes you dont need to dig because incoming waves will unearth them. Watch as they furiously dig, seeking cover and food as each wave rolls back out to sea. Mole crabs are small and do not look like a typical crab, nor do they look like a mole. They are fast and will bury themselves quickly in an effort to hide. To nd one, dig gently in sand near the water, just as if you are looking for coquinas. As you dig, they might bury deeper into the sand but if you can get underneath one, then you can scoop it up. They might tickle you, but dont worry; they do not bite. Be gentle, because they are soft and fragile. When you are nished observing the crab gently place it back into the soft, wet sand. Bird-watching is another fun activity. Gulls live on the beach and are known to swoop in to steal your food. Pesky as they might be, they are still fun to watch. Other birds to watch at the beach are pelicans. Pelicans glide just above the waters surface, and then SPLOOSH! They dive into the water headrst to grab a shy meal. Its also fun to look for bird tracks in the wet sand. Can you identify the tracks you nd? Do not chase the birds to make them y. Simply watch and admire their behavior. While on your safari, be sure to wear sunscreen so you can avoid sunburn, and have fun this summer.

The win at Sonoma gave him two rsts. It was his rst career win during a road race, and it was his rst win of the 2012 season. Bowyer lead 70 of the 112 laps, holding off Kurt Busch for most of the race. Bowyer and Busch held this placing until the last lap under a green/ white checkered, when Tony Stewart took the second place slot from Busch. This was the second straight week Stewart won second. Jeff Gordons luck was just the same as it has been for the last several weeks bad. This week it wasnt due to engine problems or anything major, he simply ran out of gas. Gordon managed to get a sixth-place nish. Maybe his luck will change in Kentucky. For the second week in a row, Marcos Ambrose was the pole sitter at the start, and he nished eighth. With only two caution ags, the race wasnt what some NASCAR fans wanted to see. On lap 42, Josh Wise spun out but was able to save it without bringing out a caution. As lap 48 came and went, it marked the longest race time without a caution. The rst caution didnt come until lap 82 when Tomy Drissi crashed. The second and nal caution came as Kyle Busch, Juan Montoya and Paul Menard spun out on the track. There were three rounds of green ag pit stops the rst was on laps 34-37, then again on laps 49-52, the last round of green ag pit stops were on laps 69-76.

LocalWednesday, June 27, 2012By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCNHCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Driving from coast to coast in an electric car built by the hands of at-risk high school teens sounds like a risky proposition, but that is the purpose of MINDDRIVE. MINDDRIVE made a presentation at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center on June 20. The project is an after-school program to teach at-risk high school teens the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business. They started their journey on June 11 in San Diego and drive an average of 250 miles per day. They arrived in Jacksonville on June 21. The of cial name of their tour is Project Lotus. These kids took a 1984 Lotus Esprit and totally converted into an electric vehicle, said Richard Stephen Rees, DeLaSalle Automotive Studio instructor and mentor. Her body has been modi ed to make her more lightweight and aerodynamic and is powered by 30 Lithium Ion batteries totaling 96 volts and has a chain-drive motor. According to Rees, in spite of what people may think about electric cars, this car can travel at conservative highway speed, and their hope is it will achieve maximum energy conservation ef ciency. So far were averaging over 400 miles to the gallon, if we were to compare gasoline to electricity usage per mile, Rees said. If we could have electric re lling stations similar to a Sonic drive-in set up across the country, imagine the positive impact electric cars could make not only on the environment, but on the fuel economy too. Our goal is to give the students the tools to process creative thinking, see the potential for realizing dreams in a successful and practical future and instill a greater desire to learn by connecting the process to real life skills, Rees said. The program is unique in that it pairs an experienced automotive mentor with each student. Rees said at the core of the program are highly applicable education concepts such as science, technology, engineering, mathematics, reading and history. MINDDRIVE will continue the principle objectives that primarily taught the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business, Rees said. I attribute much of the programs success to the astounding principles provided by our programs mentors. He said the main focus of MINDDRIVE is about the educational experience that can be provided for the students. The teaching process is unique, pairing one student to one adult mentor, not always one on one, but in a way that allows the students a direct connection to individual adults, Rees said. The highly capable, well educated adults who work carefully to create windows that the students can work within to make decisions themselves in designing and fabricating the project vehicles. The work has been focused to two primary directives: the design of the ultra light body and the electrical propulsion system. This project also connects the students with the real world by working on important environmental issues and the future increased demand for an alternative fuel source, Rees explained. They are learning to understand and breakdown the creative process and learn how to communicate as a team to make progress in an ef cient way to meet schedules, Rees said. In the end, the work will be evaluated to see how it met its challenge and how scienti cally it performs. Rees said that all of the mentors in their program have experience as youth educators, whether through schools or through activities like coaching sports and Boy Scouts. They all understand the project is that of the students and that they are but enablers, Rees said. Their project before Project Lotus was Project Lola, which was the design and fabrication of a working automobile. The design is based on using a rolling platform of a 2000 Lola Indy Car, and the platform has a working suspension, working brakes, steering and structural tub, Rees said. The tub is a proven ultra strong passenger envelope of the racing car. Rees said the project required minimum modi cations to the platform with primary work related to the design of an electric propulsion system and a lightweight exterior skin turning the open wheeled racecar into a full-bodied car. The car was designed to travel at 60 miles per hour at a maximum and be able to operate for an hour between charges, Rees said. Its a single seat urban alternative energy vehicle and because of its minimal weight of 1,300 pounds it shows how simplicity and lighter weight can in uence performance and energy conservation.

WHAT IS MINDDRIVE A non-pro t organization whose mission statement is to inspire at-risk teens to want to learn by expanding their vision for the future, and to transform and sustain the urban work force. The expanded mission includes working in urban communities with teens on green technology and innovation through critical thinking and experiential learning. Projects include building unique electric cars, teaching ef ciency dynamics and innovative aerodynamics, integrating with school curriculum in math, science and history, counseling students on career paths, and securing positions for them in like-minded industries within their urban community. As a not-for-pro t organization, MINDDRIVE aims to create partnerships with corporations that have similar goals, values and community outreach connections. An important aspect of the class is the proprietary student/mentoring program. MINDDRIVE uses a one-on-one mentor to student ratio. Mentors work with the students in educational and socio-economic ways, creating a bonding relationship that is critical to both the learning process and the enhancement of the students vision for their future. Steve Rees founded the organization after teaching a class at DeLaSalle Education Center, a charter school in Kansas City for three years. Linda Buchner and Tom Strongman are partners.MINDDRIVE visits WHTC on tour

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3Evacuating when a hurricane hits the coast is a stressful and scary experience, especially when evacuating with horses. Though tornadoes give little warning for evacuation, hurricanes can give enough lead time to actually move people and horses out of the storms expected path. But even with that time, preparation can be crucial to the survival of horses. Dr. William Moyer, professor and special assistant to the dean at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, offers a series of suggestions for evacuating with horses. Take the threat seriously, Moyer said. You need to make the decision to leave as soon as you can. If you wait until the last minute, youre placing yourself and your horse in harms way. Over 100,000 animals were lost during Hurricane Ike. He suggested owners make sure their trailers are road-worthy before hurricane season begins or identify someone with reliable trucks and trailers who can transport horses for them. Another important aspect of evacuating horses is ensuring your horses are comfortable with loading. Working with your horses ahead of time is particularly important if a neighbor or friend will be transporting your horse because ill-behaved horses can waste valuable evacuation time or refusal of transport. Evacuation trafc is often slow and crowded, creating a dangerous situation for trailered horses. You are often forced to move quite slowly, Moyer said. Filling up on gas or diesel before entering trafc is imperative and can keep you out of situations where your animal might overheat or become dehydrated should you run out of fuel. Moyer advised identifying evacuation destinations. While moving inland during a hurricane is important, nding a specic place to go is best. During hurricane Ike, we sheltered 166 horses through a cooperative agreement with a local livestock arena operation. The degree of planning for resources, personnel and scheduling regular care can be daunting. He suggested creating an evacuation kit with a brief and well documented health history, a list of behavior peculiarities (if applicable), a rst aid kit, cash, appropriate health documentation, enough food and adequate, safe water supplies for about four days, and any necessary medicine for chronic or pre-existing illnesses. Owners also need to ensure the appropriate health documentation accompanies the horse. An up-to-date Coggins test is necessary, particularly if crossing state lines. Moyer suggested making sure you have these papers organized before hurricane season. In addition to required documentation, vaccinations also are suggested. Because evacuating can be a stressful time, vaccinations can help decrease the likelihood of several diseases, Moyer said. Mosquitoes can be a huge problem during hurricane season, and moving them around coastal areas can expose them to new areas of infestation and diseases. Also, prepare current paper and electronic copies of pictures of your horse for reclaiming purposes, particularly if the horse isnt tattooed or branded. Ideally, these would include a picture of the owner and the horse together to ensure ownership, Moyer said. If you cannot evacuate your horse or are forced to leave part of your herd behind, some precautions can help you reunite with your horse. Keeping photographs can help, but also attaching identication information to the horses body can be useful. Braiding information wrapped in plastic to horses manes and tails can help. Livestock paint works well to put identication information on the body, and its waterproof. Or even taking a pair of clippers and shaving your contact information into the animals hair can help you reunite with your horse when you return. In addition to preparing your horse for evacuation, Moyer also suggested preparing yourself. Have a personal evacuation plan, too. You have to take care of yourself rst to be able to take care of your horse. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

SnyderI have always thought about what it would be like to be wealthy. Unless I win the lottery, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States then to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks, and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy. After all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money, but then I thought about whats involved, and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers, all they can talk about is money, speci cally, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years, and I know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher, I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping, and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this, and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political of ce. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea. For all the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow. Rev. James L.

But there was also another reason to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, and that was that they always expected something in return, of comparable value. Gift-giving in ancient cultures was meant to be reciprocated and this carries over to modern times. But, a true gift should be something freely given without any expectation of return. If there is an expectation of a comparable return then we are really bartering rather than giving. So, we should give with a spirit of genuine charity, not expecting anything in return. Test your ability to give in this spirit by giving anonymously, so that the recipient wont know who it came from. This isnt always practical, but can sometimes be done by sending someone an anonymous gift through the mail or by arranging for an intermediary to give the gift for you, perhaps even allowing the intermediary to take credit for the gift. Wanting to be thanked for a gift is all about our ego, and while it is only natural to desire thanks, it is better to give expecting nothing in return.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser1364 N.
