The 15 items had a combined value of $64,759.10. Investigators say other items value had been in ated to exaggerate the insurance claim. Insurance fraud (more than $20,000 and less than $100,000) is a second-degree felony. These allegations are not true, Ruben Laurel said Friday. This has nothing to do with our practice, and we have hired an attorney to take care of it. Among the 15 items claimed lost were a Brunswick Bridgeport pool table, 250 CDs, 250 DVDS and 200 VHS tapes, 60 XBox video games and 85 Wii video games, SCUBA tanks and regulators, 350 Barbie dolls, Pampered Chef kitchen utensils, 53 bottles of wine, champagne and liquor and two 6-foot surf boards. State Fire Marshal Matt Streichert investigated the re scene on the night of the blaze and determined the re originated in the kitchen area, causing extensive damage to the house. Jerry Troy Bradley, Lorrie Laurels brother, told the re marshal he had been cooking on the stove before leaving the house and possibly left cooking grease on the stovetop, forgetting to turn off the burner, according to the af davit. He returned a short time later to nd the re department attempting to extinguish the re. The Laurels were insured by Cotton States Mutual Insurance Co. of Atlanta, and the re took place one day before the policy cancellation date, according to the af davit. They led an insurance claim and provided a detailed listing of contents lost, with a loss valued at $435,905. Of that amount, $107,580.89 was for items purchased within one year of the insurance claim. The insurer alleges items claimed as damaged or lost in the re were not present at the time of the re and/or have been inated, according to the af davit. The Laurels were examined under oath, and upon review of the examination, Detective David Lindsay of the Division of Insurance Fraud learned the couple had claimed an extensive list of items lost or damaged in the house re to include items not discovered in an investigation of the re scene by Fire Investigator J. Michael Hawkins of Fire Analysis & Investigative Resources, according to the af davit. Cotton States Mutual Insurance Co. had hired Hawkins, who told the detective that 15 items on the claim were not present at the time of the re, according to his investigation. The combined value of those items alone is $64,759.10. Bradley F. Smith of Paul Davis Restoration in Panama City was hired to perform a detailed inventory of the debris in February, and he failed to locate items listed in the insurance claim at the re scene. Denise Zdenahlik, senior investigator with Cotton States Mutual Insurance Co., told Lindsay the claim has not been settled and alleges the Laurels insurance claim was in ated.

Probable cause was found to believe he received income from Southwest Florida Enterprises, Inc. while he was a member of the Florida House, when he knew, or with the exercise of reasonable care should have known it was given to in uence his vote or of cial action. Probable cause also was found to believe his contract with SFEI through Millennium Marketing, Inc. would create a frequently recurring con ict between his private interests and his public duties as a Florida House member or would impede the full and faithful discharge of his public duties. The Commission also found probable cause to believe Rivera misused his public position by using campaign funds for noncampaign related expenditures. An allegation that he misused his position to request or accept State reimbursement for travel expenses paid with campaign funds or state of ce expense accounts, and an allegation that he failed to report, as a gift, forgiveness of a part of a debt he owed Millennium. Probable cause was found to believe Robert Skidmore III, Charlotte County Commissioner, misused his position to ask for special treatment in obtaining a liquor license for a third party, and by asking County employees to look for and selectively enforce code violations against his former wifes new family. The Commission also found probable cause to believe Skidmore requested a County employee continue a hearing for the bene t of himself or another person. However, the Commission found no probable cause to believe that he misused his position to request that staff waive the code violations of a constituent. Finding that the public interest would not be served by further proceedings due to the totality of the circumstances and because he sought the advice of counsel, the Commission voted to dismiss allegations that Walton County Commissioner Larry Jones employment with waste management, which had a contract with Walton County, created a prohibited con ict or that his votes on measures affecting the company created a prohibited voting con ict. The Commission also found no probable cause to believe he solicited or accepted employment with Waste Management in return for his of cial action, accepted the employment when he knew or should have known it was offered to in uence his of cial action, or used inside information gained by reason of his public position to secure a bene t for his employer. An allegation that he misused his position to bene t Waste Management was also dismissed with a nding of no probable cause. Probable cause was also found to believe Rivera violated Article II, Section 8, of the Florida Constitution with regard to six allegations surrounding his nancial disclosure: that he failed to report or did not properly report income, stocks and bonds, or secondary income sources on his 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 CE Form 6s; and that he failed to le a CE Form 6F within 60 days of leaving of ce in the Florida House. However, the Commission issued a nding of no probable cause regarding an allegation that Mr. Rivera had a voting conict when he voted on HB 1047 which bene ted SFEI, as the alleged violations fell outside the ve-year statute of limitations. The Commission found no probable cause to believe Paul Mac Work, DeFuniak Springs City Council member, entered into a real estate listing agreement given to in uence him, or misused his position to direct the efforts of the DeFuniak Springs Code Enforcement Board. An allegation that he had a real estate listing agreement with a homeowner while the homeowner was subject to the regulation of the City was also dismissed with a nding of no probable cause. The Commission dismissed the following complaints for lack of legal suf ciency: Warren J. Yeager Jr., Gulf County Commissioner; Kevin Kipp, Executive Director of the University of South Florida College of Nursing Research Center; Tanya Murphy, Director of the Rothman Center for Pediatric Neuropsychiatry at the University of South Florida; Rana Erbrick, Cape Coral City Councilmember; two complaints against Alice Frierson, Deputy Mayor of Arcadia; two complaints against Robert Heine, Arcadia City Council member; two complaints against Robert Allen, Arcadia City Council member; Eleanor Sobel, member of the Florida Senate; Bob Gualtieri, Pinellas County Sheriff; Cheryl Byers, Director of Research Integrity and Compliance at the University of South Florida; James Robinson, Pinellas County School District General Counsel; Peggy OShea, Pinellas County School Board Member; Robin Wikle, Pinellas County School Board Member; Terry Krassner, Pinellas County School Board Member; Carol Cook, Pinellas County School Board Member; Janet Clark, Pinellas County School Board Member; two complaints against Keith Fitzgerald, former member of the Florida House; Myron Rosner, North Miami Beach Mayor; Paul Eichner, Chief Legal Counsel for the Broward County Health Department; Anthony Vomero, Acting Environmental Administrator of the Broward County Health Department; Thelbert David Morgan, Escambia County Sheriff; Lawrence Bustle, Manatee County Commissioner and former Palmetto Mayor; Roy Johnson, Holly Hill Mayor; Nancy Bostock, Pinellas County Commissioner; Kenneth Welch, Pinellas County Commissioner; Neil Brickeld, Pinellas County Commissioner; KAREN SEEL; Pinellas County Commissioner; and, William P. Cervone, State Attorney for the 8th Judicial Circuit. In an advisory opinion, the Commission determined that a prohibited conict of interest would not be created were the law rm of a candidate for the Broward County Commission to continue to serve as special counsel to a municipality located within the County, should the candidate be elected and take of ce. Although the municipality and County have an ongoing dispute over the expansion of an airport and its impact on the municipality and its citizens, the Commission found no prohibited continuing or frequently recurring con ict or impediment to duty would be created, because the airport expansion is a unique situation and neither the candidate nor his law rm have had any involvement in the citys dispute with the county.

Call 638-0212. For topics, your writer is capitalizing on the 75th anniversary celebration of the Panama City NewsHerald, currently in progress for the entire year of 2012. This is the third article re ecting on our experiences for the 17-year period of February 1952 until December 1969, the time Hester and I were in Panama City. This was in conjunction with my job at Sears, Roebuck and Company for six years, then with the Florida Probation and Parole Commission for eleven additional years. Hester and I were married on Oct. 4, 1952 in Cottonwood, Ala. We spent our honeymoon in our newly purchased two-bedroom frame home at 1118 Fairland Avenue. This was one of two new homes built on property left vacant when the brick homes, known as Lisenby Project, were built in the early 1940s. Our house was built by Frank Dama and Eugene Lokey, who had a construction rm at that time. It was nanced by a new nancial institution, Security Federal Savings and Loan Association, managed by Mr. Casper Harris, with Mrs. Florence Gay and Mrs. Jean Thomas Smith as tellers and assistants. Ours was one of their rst loans. The Prattler had been employed with Sears for six months and had been assigned the job as receiving manager. The job seemed to be a dead end for the recent graduate from the University of Florida with a degree in sales and sales Management. Each manager, from Mr. Richard (Dick) Murphy, Mr. Charles S. Sanders and Mr. Bob Hudson, assured me that I was in an unof cial management training program and was being groomed for a promotion when the time came. After more than six years and after meeting some ne fellow employees who became lifelong friends, your writer applied for a job with the Florida Probation and Parole Commission and was hired. For the next 11 years, I had an of ce in the Bay County Courthouse and the opportunity to meet elected of cials who I knew were in of ce but had never had the opportunity to meet. The three circuit judges, comprising the 14th Judicial Circuit at that time, were the Honorable E. Clay Lewis, Jr., Honorable W. L. Fitzpatrick and Honorable E. C. Welch, whose service was primarily in Jackson County. In a few years, Honorable Joseph W. Bailey, county judge of Bay County, was appointed to the Circuit Court Bench upon the retirement of Judge Welch and Honorable Robert L. McCrary, Jr., county judge of Jackson County was elevated to the Circuit Court Bench upon the death of Judge Lewis. My entire service was with the above judges and mostly with Judges Fitzpartick, Bailey and McCrary. Mr. J. Frank Adams, of Blountstown, was the elected State Attorney and served all six counties with no assistants. I well recall when attorney, William E. (Bill) Harris, was appointed as a part time assistant state attorney, working mostly the cases in Bay County. Later, William C. (Bill) Mongoven, a Chipley lawyer, was added as an assistant state attorney, working the Northern counties of the circuit. Defense lawyers in those days were primarily W. Fred Turner, Leo C. Jones and J. C. Bodiford. The Bay County Sheriff was the colorful and wellloved M. J. (Doc) Daf n, whose career extended for many years with much history and stories, written and carried down through the years with one appearing in the Heritage of Bay County Book (2005), authored by his kinsman, Rev. J. R. Daf n. In Bay County, Bruce Collins was the elected Clerk of Court and served many years before losing the post to youthful aspirant, Harold Bazzel. Harold held the job until retirement. The story of Bruce and Harold, was written for the second edition of the Heritage of Bay County( 2011), by the Prattler, as was a narrative on the life of Circuit Judge Joseph W. Bailey. Gerald Conrad was serving as Tax Assessor, A. G. Appleberg was the long time Tax Collector, J. J. (Josh) Mashburn was continuing his long service as Supervisor of Elections and Tommy Smith was winding down his long tenure as Superintendent of Schools. The landmark United States Supreme Court decision in a case originating in Bay County Circuit Court, Gideon vs. Wainwright was handed down in 1963. The ruling stated that every defendant charged with a felony offense was entitled to legal counsel and if he could not afford a lawyer, the court was to appoint one for him. Soon, the decision was amended to included all misdemeanor offenses. This court case resulted in the creation of the Public Defender system in all states. Our public defender was Blountstown attorney, Virgil Q. Mayo, who held the position until retirement. Our four sons were born while we lived in Panama City. The Prattler was one of the original members of the church body which constituted St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church, 2100 Michigan Avenue, midst the wild palmettos, scrub oak, sand pines and snakes prevalent on the site. That congregation has survived until this present day and is presently under the pastor ship of Elder J. C. Stanaland. Your writer resigned the parole job in late 1969 and moved to Chipley for the many new experiences which have come his way. Upon being elected county judge in Washington County Judge in 1976, the opportunity to serve in Bay County presented itself on many occasions On each assignment, I was always welcomed and treated royally by the court of cials known earlier. I am still on the invitation list to the judges Christmas Party and other functions of the court, including investitures and retirement ceremonies. Sadly, it has been my responsibility to attend too many funerals of those judges, and other key employees, who have departed this life. Hester and I still receive invitations to the Sears Retirees Christmas Event and have able to keep in touch with many of them down through the years. We have also lost many of those friends in death also. See you all next week. When I met DeAnna Oldham at the chamber breakfast at Hardees last month, I knew I had to interview her for my Happy Corner. She impressed me immediately with her enthusiasm about her work and especially about Bonifay. Some people move to a small place like ours and nd lots to complain about. She nds lots to brag about. Though her mother hails from nearby Geneva, Ala., she married a career Air Force man and raised her family in California until DeAnna and her brother were in high school when they moved from there to Milton. DeAnna married right out of high school while attending the Milton campus of The University of Florida. After two children, she was divorced, and as a single parent, she worked in food service and continued her education until she received her degree in business administration from UF. Shawnees restaurant in Pensacola promoted her to manager, but she loved working with people so she took a job as Church Administrator for Central Chapel associated with Churches of God. Her concern for women who came to the church needing help led her to start a ministry called Women in Transition where she helped them to nd agencies to help them with expenses; to nd jobs; to nd places to live; to nd clothes to wear for jobs; how to interview for jobs, and ETC. The church continues that ministry still. When her husband, Joshua Oldham, the son of Eugene and Julia of Bonifay, was transferred here for a job with the state three years ago, she made this their home and went to work as manager for Hardees of Bonifay. She has treated that establishment, not as a job with a hamburger chain, but as if it were her own private restaurant. She knows her clientele. The mens group who eat breakfast there every morning are her personal friends. The ladies group who meet there on Fridays for lunch are known by name. The sisters who meet there weekly get special attention. The teens that congregate there on Friday nights are greeted by Mrs. Oldham. They know they are welcome there, but if they need correction, she supplies that. Relay For Life has special meaning for DeAnna, and she has agreed to be the event chair for Bonifays Relay in April of 2013. Her dad is now undergoing treatment for a recurrence of Hodgkin Lymphoma after an 11year period of remission. About 12 years ago as she was holding her sons hand as they walked for the relay in Pensacola, her dad was battling his rst round of chemo from the disease. The son saw the luminaria being placed and he said, We dont want Granddaddys name on one of these. DeAnna realized that both her grandfathers had died with cancer, and she vowed that it was not going to rob her children of a grandfather if she could prevent it. Since that time she has been involved with Relay and welcomes the opportunity to lead her newly adopted homes event. Her goal is to answer any questions the public has, to teach us the mission of the American Cancer Society, and to raise awareness for the need to continue research to nd a cure for this killer which is second only to heart attacks in the U.S Bonifay Relays theme is Roping For A Cure and the sponsorship goal is $2000, $1600 of which has already been pledged. Julia Bullington is the survivor chairman and she intends to nd at least 50 survivors to attend the event where they will be honored guests DeAnna says, Bonifay is now my home. If I had known such a community existed while I was rearing my children, I would have come here sooner. Her children are Hannah Johnston who is a prevet student at University of West Florida, and her son Daniel Johnston is also at UWF hoping to pursue a degree in sports medicine or some related eld. We welcome DeAnna and Joshua to Bonifay and look forward to future associations with this lady who is so willing to give of herself and her resources to make our community a better place. I urge you, along with her, to get your team together and begin planning for April 19, 2013. Relay is a lot of fun and is a major source of funds to ght cancer. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSPerry and Hester Lucas Wells as a youthful couple, as we appear in a photograph made on the grounds of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church.Keep God in mind when votingThe upcoming election will be the most important election of our lifetime. The elected president will be able to place one or more judges on the Supreme Court. These judges are for their lifetime. The decisions handed down by them will affect our children and their children event o the fourth generation. These judges usually votes their decision as the President who appoints them. I speak not as a Democrat or Republican; I speak as a man of God. Today in many schools, the word God has been stricken, or the phrase God Bless America forbidden. We fought, gave our blood and are still ghting under a ag that in many places, even our homes, we are forbidden to display. The Devil with a capital D can go into our schools and sponsor a dance, put a preacher cant go in and hold a church service. In Jeremiah 1:5, God said, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee: and before thow came forth out of the womb I sancti es thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Therefore, God knew us before we are formed, for we are formed in the mind of God, and are humans at the moment of conception. Therefore the morning after pill, is the killing of an unborn human being. Our present government says it is a womens right to choose, even at taxpayers expense. But God says its murder. In Genesis 19:1-24, God destroyed two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, because of the sin of homosexuality. Our present government says homosexuality should be honored, and homosexual marriages should be the law of the land. God spoke to me and said, America is down to its knees and this is our last chance. I will not attempt to tell you how to vote. But I will ask you two questions: 1. Are you for morality, or against morality? 2. Are you for God or against God? Your vote will determine. I am a voice in the Wilderness Crying for the Salvation of our Nation.Bishop L.C.

Call 638-0212. For topics, your writer is capitalizing on the 75th anniversary celebration of the Panama City NewsHerald, currently in progress for the entire year of 2012. This is the third article re ecting on our experiences for the 17-year period of February 1952 until December 1969, the time Hester and I were in Panama City. This was in conjunction with my job at Sears, Roebuck and Company for six years, then with the Florida Probation and Parole Commission for eleven additional years. Hester and I were married on Oct. 4, 1952 in Cottonwood, Ala. We spent our honeymoon in our newly purchased two-bedroom frame home at 1118 Fairland Avenue. This was one of two new homes built on property left vacant when the brick homes, known as Lisenby Project, were built in the early 1940s. Our house was built by Frank Dama and Eugene Lokey, who had a construction rm at that time. It was nanced by a new nancial institution, Security Federal Savings and Loan Association, managed by Mr. Casper Harris, with Mrs. Florence Gay and Mrs. Jean Thomas Smith as tellers and assistants. Ours was one of their rst loans. The Prattler had been employed with Sears for six months and had been assigned the job as receiving manager. The job seemed to be a dead end for the recent graduate from the University of Florida with a degree in sales and sales Management. Each manager, from Mr. Richard (Dick) Murphy, Mr. Charles S. Sanders and Mr. Bob Hudson, assured me that I was in an unof cial management training program and was being groomed for a promotion when the time came. After more than six years and after meeting some ne fellow employees who became lifelong friends, your writer applied for a job with the Florida Probation and Parole Commission and was hired. For the next 11 years, I had an of ce in the Bay County Courthouse and the opportunity to meet elected of cials who I knew were in of ce but had never had the opportunity to meet. The three circuit judges, comprising the 14th Judicial Circuit at that time, were the Honorable E. Clay Lewis, Jr., Honorable W. L. Fitzpatrick and Honorable E. C. Welch, whose service was primarily in Jackson County. In a few years, Honorable Joseph W. Bailey, county judge of Bay County, was appointed to the Circuit Court Bench upon the retirement of Judge Welch and Honorable Robert L. McCrary, Jr., county judge of Jackson County was elevated to the Circuit Court Bench upon the death of Judge Lewis. My entire service was with the above judges and mostly with Judges Fitzpartick, Bailey and McCrary. Mr. J. Frank Adams, of Blountstown, was the elected State Attorney and served all six counties with no assistants. I well recall when attorney, William E. (Bill) Harris, was appointed as a part time assistant state attorney, working mostly the cases in Bay County. Later, William C. (Bill) Mongoven, a Chipley lawyer, was added as an assistant state attorney, working the Northern counties of the circuit. Defense lawyers in those days were primarily W. Fred Turner, Leo C. Jones and J. C. Bodiford. The Bay County Sheriff was the colorful and wellloved M. J. (Doc) Daf n, whose career extended for many years with much history and stories, written and carried down through the years with one appearing in the Heritage of Bay County Book (2005), authored by his kinsman, Rev. J. R. Daf n. In Bay County, Bruce Collins was the elected Clerk of Court and served many years before losing the post to youthful aspirant, Harold Bazzel. Harold held the job until retirement. The story of Bruce and Harold, was written for the second edition of the Heritage of Bay County( 2011), by the Prattler, as was a narrative on the life of Circuit Judge Joseph W. Bailey. Gerald Conrad was serving as Tax Assessor, A. G. Appleberg was the long time Tax Collector, J. J. (Josh) Mashburn was continuing his long service as Supervisor of Elections and Tommy Smith was winding down his long tenure as Superintendent of Schools. The landmark United States Supreme Court decision in a case originating in Bay County Circuit Court, Gideon vs. Wainwright was handed down in 1963. The ruling stated that every defendant charged with a felony offense was entitled to legal counsel and if he could not afford a lawyer, the court was to appoint one for him. Soon, the decision was amended to included all misdemeanor offenses. This court case resulted in the creation of the Public Defender system in all states. Our public defender was Blountstown attorney, Virgil Q. Mayo, who held the position until retirement. Our four sons were born while we lived in Panama City. The Prattler was one of the original members of the church body which constituted St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church, 2100 Michigan Avenue, midst the wild palmettos, scrub oak, sand pines and snakes prevalent on the site. That congregation has survived until this present day and is presently under the pastor ship of Elder J. C. Stanaland. Your writer resigned the parole job in late 1969 and moved to Chipley for the many new experiences which have come his way. Upon being elected county judge in Washington County Judge in 1976, the opportunity to serve in Bay County presented itself on many occasions On each assignment, I was always welcomed and treated royally by the court of cials known earlier. I am still on the invitation list to the judges Christmas Party and other functions of the court, including investitures and retirement ceremonies. Sadly, it has been my responsibility to attend too many funerals of those judges, and other key employees, who have departed this life. Hester and I still receive invitations to the Sears Retirees Christmas Event and have able to keep in touch with many of them down through the years. We have also lost many of those friends in death also. See you all next week. When I met DeAnna Oldham at the chamber breakfast at Hardees last month, I knew I had to interview her for my Happy Corner. She impressed me immediately with her enthusiasm about her work and especially about Bonifay. Some people move to a small place like ours and nd lots to complain about. She nds lots to brag about. Though her mother hails from nearby Geneva, Ala., she married a career Air Force man and raised her family in California until DeAnna and her brother were in high school when they moved from there to Milton. DeAnna married right out of high school while attending the Milton campus of The University of Florida. After two children, she was divorced, and as a single parent, she worked in food service and continued her education until she received her degree in business administration from UF. Shawnees restaurant in Pensacola promoted her to manager, but she loved working with people so she took a job as Church Administrator for Central Chapel associated with Churches of God. Her concern for women who came to the church needing help led her to start a ministry called Women in Transition where she helped them to nd agencies to help them with expenses; to nd jobs; to nd places to live; to nd clothes to wear for jobs; how to interview for jobs, and ETC. The church continues that ministry still. When her husband, Joshua Oldham, the son of Eugene and Julia of Bonifay, was transferred here for a job with the state three years ago, she made this their home and went to work as manager for Hardees of Bonifay. She has treated that establishment, not as a job with a hamburger chain, but as if it were her own private restaurant. She knows her clientele. The mens group who eat breakfast there every morning are her personal friends. The ladies group who meet there on Fridays for lunch are known by name. The sisters who meet there weekly get special attention. The teens that congregate there on Friday nights are greeted by Mrs. Oldham. They know they are welcome there, but if they need correction, she supplies that. Relay For Life has special meaning for DeAnna, and she has agreed to be the event chair for Bonifays Relay in April of 2013. Her dad is now undergoing treatment for a recurrence of Hodgkin Lymphoma after an 11year period of remission. About 12 years ago as she was holding her sons hand as they walked for the relay in Pensacola, her dad was battling his rst round of chemo from the disease. The son saw the luminaria being placed and he said, We dont want Granddaddys name on one of these. DeAnna realized that both her grandfathers had died with cancer, and she vowed that it was not going to rob her children of a grandfather if she could prevent it. Since that time she has been involved with Relay and welcomes the opportunity to lead her newly adopted homes event. Her goal is to answer any questions the public has, to teach us the mission of the American Cancer Society, and to raise awareness for the need to continue research to nd a cure for this killer which is second only to heart attacks in the U.S Bonifay Relays theme is Roping For A Cure and the sponsorship goal is $2000, $1600 of which has already been pledged. Julia Bullington is the survivor chairman and she intends to nd at least 50 survivors to attend the event where they will be honored guests DeAnna says, Bonifay is now my home. If I had known such a community existed while I was rearing my children, I would have come here sooner. Her children are Hannah Johnston who is a prevet student at University of West Florida, and her son Daniel Johnston is also at UWF hoping to pursue a degree in sports medicine or some related eld. We welcome DeAnna and Joshua to Bonifay and look forward to future associations with this lady who is so willing to give of herself and her resources to make our community a better place. I urge you, along with her, to get your team together and begin planning for April 19, 2013. Relay is a lot of fun and is a major source of funds to ght cancer. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSPerry and Hester Lucas Wells as a youthful couple, as we appear in a photograph made on the grounds of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church.Keep God in mind when votingThe upcoming election will be the most important election of our lifetime. The elected president will be able to place one or more judges on the Supreme Court. These judges are for their lifetime. The decisions handed down by them will affect our children and their children event o the fourth generation. These judges usually votes their decision as the President who appoints them.

Sarah Smith BonifayPanama City News HeraldThe November ballot is chockablock with proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution, even more so than usual. Its worth noting that none of the amendments were sponsored by citizens groups. All originated in the Legislature, and several re ect partisan political agendas. This is a summary of where we stand on each issue. AMENDMENT 1 states the government cant require citizens to buy health insurance. This is Floridas attempt to thumb its nose at the individual mandate portion of Obamacare that was upheld by the Supreme Court. We oppose that mandate, but this amendment, if passed, would carry no legal weight as federal law trumps state law. The Florida Constitution should not be cluttered with symbolic political statements. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENTS 2, 9 and 11 expand property tax exemptions for certain groups disabled veterans who move, spouses of veterans or rst responders killed in the line of duty, lowincome seniors who have lived in their homes a long time. The state constitution already is full of such carveouts, and we have opposed most of them because they make a Swiss cheese of the tax code. We would prefer to see comprehensive tax relief for everyone, not just sympathetic groups. We recommend a NO vote on all three. AMENDMENT 3 would change the way Florida calculates its revenue limit. Currently it is capped according to the increase in personal income. Under this amendment, it would be based on the rate of in ation and population growth. This would help prevent the state from going on a spending spree during ush economic times, which is what happened prior to the 2006 downturn that led to so many painful budget cuts. Revenues collected in excess of the cap would be placed in a reserve fund for emergencies. Also, the Legislature could temporarily suspend the cap during emergencies. AMENDMENT 3 would impose spending discipline on Tallahassee while giving lawmakers exibility to loosen the purse strings when it is truly needed. We recommend a YES vote. AMENDMENT 4 would give the Legislature the power to repeal the recapture rule, which allows the taxable value of a homeowners property to rise even when the propertys market value is falling. We have supported repeal of the recapture rule for years on the grounds that it undermines the protections afforded by the Save Our Homes amendment. However, this amendment also includes other changes to homestead exemptions that would complicate the system and risk shifting the tax burden to residents. We recommend a NO vote and urge the Legislature to come back with a clean, recapture-only amendment in 2014. AMENDMENT 5 would give the Legislature more authority over state courts, including con rmation power over judicial nominations. This is a partisan power grab in response to some court rulings that have not gone the Republicans way. It would politicize the judiciary and threaten its independence. The current setup works ne. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENT 6 would change the states right-toprivacy law by prohibiting public funding of abortion. However, that is already federal and state law. Therefore, this measure seems redundant. In addition, supporters argue the amendment is needed to allow the Legislature to pass a law requiring minors to get parental consent for an abortion. But the text of the amendment says nothing about that. If proponents want to pursue that goal, they should do so explicitly in a separate amendment. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENT 8 would allow taxpayer funding, both directly and indirectly, of religious institutions. This opens the door to state-funded education vouchers that could be used at parochial schools. That is something we have supported, so long as the aid goes directly to parents and allows them to choose where it will be spent public, private or parochial. That is consistent with U.S. Supreme Court rulings. For example, in a 2002 case that upheld a Cleveland school voucher system, the court developed a private choice test for such programs: They must have a valid secular purpose. Aid must go to the parents and not to the schools. A broad class of bene ciaries must be covered. The programs must be neutral with respect to religion. There must be adequate nonreligous options. However, this measure also would open the door to government choosing which religious organizations to fund directly (under current law, state agencies can use taxpayer dollars to fund social or health-care services provided by nonpro t organizations af liated with religious groups). That is problematic. Those funds will come with government strings attached, which could undermine the religious mission of the organization. It could exacerbate religious differences among the public if the state funds groups that some citizens disagree with. If the state denies funding based on these objections, that will spark lawsuits. Legislators should craft a narrower amendment tailored speci cally to vouchers. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENT 10 would double the tax exemption on tangible personal property used in businesses (machinery, of ce furniture, computers, etc.). This is an existing tax, not the creation of a new one. Increasing the exemption will lower the cost of doing business, which could bene t the state economy. We recommend a YES vote. AMENDMENT 12 would change the way student representatives to the Board of Governors is chosen. This is a minor procedural matter that is unnecessary and unbecoming of the state constitution. We recommend a NO vote.

All of the candidates listed the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) as an important issue for voters; it might be a familiar item that will help voters make their choice Nov. 6. F stands for failure and CAT stands for catastrophe, Pitts said. Pitts, an opponent of FCATs way of doing education, said he would work hard at being an advocate in the House to stand up for state employees and education. We need to prepare our children for the future, not just prepare them to take a test, Pitts said. Pitts said local schools have the capacity to develop a curriculum inside state guidelines. We need to return our local schools to local control, he added. The testy subject does not end with Pitts. Holman, a write-in candidate, described his daughter as once being a high school student who had the grades to pass the 12th grade but not the FCAT, which he said was unfair. If a student goes to school 12 years, and they worked and they earned the credits they needed to graduate, I do not believe that one test should dictate to that student whether they get a diploma or not, Holman said. Theres got to be a way to come up with a solution or a plan that will keep the education at a high level but not put a big burden on the student, he added. Holman said if elected he would work with his fellow representatives to examine a solutions with a help or harm approach. The FCAT is transitioning to the FCAT 2.0, which sets new student academic content standards, according to the Florida Department of Education website. The transition will be completed this spring. Contrary to Pitts and Holman, Coley thinks the test must remain. The state has always had some type of test to measure a students level of achievement, she said. Without measurement, how would we tell if our students were receiving training that they have to have to compete in the tough economy and job market that we have today? The former educator said she believed the FCAT never will be completely taken out of the state educational system. However, as the Florida State House representative of District 7, Coley has supported the test to be replacing with End-of Course Assessments. If we dont offer a strong education, Coley added, why would new businesses and new industry want to come to our state; they have to know that we will provide a well-trained workforce.District 5 candidates eye FCAT

He says theres nothing quite like it anywhere else. Its important to us that all the artists are local and theres a variety, which is exactly what they have, Merceron said Sunday afternoon. Theres an assortment of medians from glass and found objects to wood work and paintings theres everything. Its inspirational. The two-day event at Henderson State Park put on by the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation for the 17th year featured more than 100 artists and 18 different mediums. Proceeds from the event go to the All Kinds of Art program that helps bring art education and artists to area schools. Our mission is to be the leading art advocate of cultural arts in the area and to bring that to children, said Marcia Hull, executive director with the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation. The festival provides a venue for artists to showcase their work as the only ne art show in Destin. Tents lined the paved area beside Henderson Beach with everything from glasswork to watercolor paintings with the Emerald Coast as a backdrop. This will be the last year the festival is held at the beachside area. Next year, Hull said the festival will be at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village, which is set to be built and completed by spring 2013. This year is kind of bittersweet, Hull said. The new venue, though, will allow us to accommodate more artists and it will have easier access. Mabel Kaleikini of Destin said the festival is a tradition for her to attend much like the other area offerings that feature local artists. I always enjoy the beauty of the artwork and the surroundings, Kaleikini said. Its important to support local artists. Thats what its all about.

Steve Southerland has outraised challenger Al Lawson by more than $1.1 million in his campaign to regain his House District 2 seat. The numbers were posted earlier this month by the Center for Responsive Politics, which runs the website OpenSecrets.org. According to the group, Southerland, R-Panama City, was able to raise $1,602,108 through Oct. 17. Lawson, D-Tallahassee, raised $509,690. Southerlands campaign has spent $1,105,168 versus Lawsons $435,615. In 2010, Southerland spent nearly $1.3 million to capture the seat from Rep. Allen Boyd, who spent more than $3.8 million. On its OpenSecrets website, the Center for Responsive Politics has analyized individual contributors to the campaigns and listed the organizations and companies where the contributors or their spouses work. Southerlands main local contributors work for organizations that are fairly well known in the community. At the top of the list for Southerland is Gulf Coast Dermatology, $14,201, according to the latest numbers by OpenSecrets. Second is Eastern Shipbuilding, $12,500; and third is Bill Cramer Chevrolet at $10,500. The $10,000 organizations are Every Republican is Crucial PAC, Freedom Project, National Beer Wholesalers Association and the OSI Restaurant Partners. Others include GAC Contractors, $7,000, and L-3 Communications, $6,000. The Southerland campaign said the donations to the campaign were a sign the constituency was behind the congressman. The people of the district are rewarding Steve for going to Washington and keeping his promises, said Matt McCullough, communications director for Southerland. McCullough said the Lawson campaign was backed by special interest groups. Lawsons campaign said they are not worried about the spending gap. We are going to ght right through it, said Mara Sloan, spokeswoman for the Lawson campaign. Sloan also swung back at the Southerland camp, saying no one is getting more backing from Washington than Mr. Southerland. Its no surprise that the Southerland campaign is outspending the Lawson campaign, considering that theyve had two years to raise money from Washington special interest groups and big-time Washington donors, Sloan said. The Al Lawson campaign is fortunate to have the support of so many local North Floridians. Many of our top donors are actually commercial shermen right here in the second district. They have come together to support Al Lawson because they know that he will continue to stand up for them, unlike Congressman Southerland, who has not supported them during his time in Congress. Lawsons contributors work for organizations that include the American Association for Justice, $5,250, and a number of $5,000 contributions, including some from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Workers, BRIDGE PAC, Democrats Win Seats, Florida Benevolent Association, International Associations of Fireghters and the Plumbers and Pipe tters Union. Florida State University employees contributed $1,250 and Blue Cross/ Blue Shield employees put up $1,000 in support of Lawson.Special to the NewsCHIPLEY Take Stock In Children, a 120-credit-hour college tuition scholarship program announces it has selected eight new recipients in grades eight and nine who will be recognized by name at the annual presentation dinner on Nov. 13. Since its inception in Washington County in 2005, the local TSIC program has graduated 47 students from high school and 39 (including the 2012 high school graduates) are currently enrolled in a two-year or four-year college program or a certi cation program at technical centers. Three students are either in the one-year deferral or military deferral. For school year 2012-13, there are 29 students in grades 9-12 working toward high school graduation and receipt of the scholarship. The number of scholarship contracts to be awarded varies from year-to-year based upon the donations from Washington County businesses and individuals, as well as money in the state matching account. Since starting in 2005, the local TSIC has raised about $400,000, which excludes the state-level match, and the total value of scholarships is estimated at $775,000. The program has averaged about 10 high school graduates between Vernon and Chipley high schools each year that receive the 120-credit-hour tuition scholarship. To obtain the TSIC scholarship, a student must be in grades seven to 11, sign a contract to meet certain standards during the remaining school years until high school graduation and have family support; the parents/guardians also sign a contract to support their student. Family incomes must be below a certain level based upon the number of children in the family at the time the quali cation for TSIC is established. TSIC allocates more scholarships to grades seven to nine so the students will have more years in the program prior to high school graduation. Applications are taken each September shortly after the school year starts and are available from middle and high school guidance counselors. There is an urgent need for additional student mentors who work directly with the students and for additional student advocates who are the liaison between Take Stock and the local schools and guidance counselors. Other volunteer opportunities are available to serve on the Leadership Council that guides the total program or in fund raising. The Washington County Take Stock In Children program is locally run and locally funded and there is always work for willing hands. The TSIC program is operated by the Washington County Scholarship Foundation Inc., which holds federal and state income tax exemption with charitable organization registration. For more information about the program, to volunteer or to make a donation, contact David Solger, program coordinator, at 638-1276 or visit www.takestockinchildren.org.

Political ad paid for and approved by Debbie Kolmetz, nonpartisan, School Board District 2FOR Wednesday, October 31, 2012By TIM CROFT227-7827 | @PSJ_Star tcroft@star .com Had Tom Graney of St. Joe Beach known what two men identifying themselves as investigators were inquiring about in early summer he would have told them to buzz off. The State Attorneys Of ce opened an investigation earlier this year into allegations that the Political Action Committee Citizens Improving Gulf County had attempted to extort County Commissioner Warren Yeager from a re-election campaign with allegations including complaint with the Florida Commission on Ethics. That investigation went public Thursday morning during a meeting of the Board of County Commissioners when Port St. Joe resident Christine McElroy said she had cooperated in the investigation and Commission chair Bill Williams stated several times that he had worn a wire during the investigation. McElroy was waved to the podium by commissioners during the public comment portion of the meeting and immediately began to discuss the investigation and actions by the PAC. The allegations of blackmail as Williams termed it during the Commission meeting and extortion as it was called in an Oct. 16 letter from State Attorney Glenn Hess apparently originated with a conversation Graney had with Williams in the spring before Williams decided not to seek re-election to the District 3 seat. Graney is the only name mentioned in Hesss letter, which closed the case that was subsequently reopened following Thursdays meeting, according to Public Information Of cer David Angier. Angier reported Friday morning that the le was closed and submitted a letter dated Oct. 16 from Hess to Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent Matthew Herring telling him to close the le. He said staff was trying to locate the le. By early Friday afternoon, Angier reported back that the investigation was in fact back open based upon information received since Thursdays meeting. Angier said no one else with the State Attorneys Of ce could comment on the investigation. Hess letter states that while allegations of extortion pertaining to Gulf County Commissioner Warren Yeager establishes probable cause, the entire case rested with statements made by Graney to the two investigators, one whom identi ed himself as Herring. Graney said he did not recall the name of the other investigator, and they did not offer business cards. The investigators came to Graneys house, asked to speak to him and over 45 minutes asked him a series of questions about what he knew about the PAC. Graney freely obliged, he said. In his letter, Hess noted that no other witnesses several other people were contacted and declined to answer questions as is their right, Hess wrote came forward to verify Graneys statements about the PAC. As Graney was the only witness to the allegations that Citizens Improving Gulf County had attempted to extort Yeager from the race for the District 5 seat, Hess said the charges could not be sustained beyond a reasonable doubt. A prosecutors responsibility is to charge crimes when the facts can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, Hess wrote to Herring. In this instance the question is whether there is a crime or just dirty politics; reasonable people could well differ. Graney believes he is the source of the allegations and believed they stemmed from a conversation he had with Williams concerning campaign strategy. Graney believes Williams recorded the conversation without his knowledge. Williams acknowledged wearing a wire several times during Thursdays meeting of the BOCC, calling the investigation one involving blackmail. He could not be reached for comment on Friday. Graney said his name shows up because he was one person who talked to investigators. He told investigators that in the spring he had given Williams an idea of the political landscape as the campaign season heated up and talked strategy. Graney who is not a member of the PAC, says he does not know their membership but has worked with PAC president Jim Garth in the past said the questions investigators asked when they visited weeks later quickly provided an idea that the conversation with Williams was not con dential. He told investigators what he had told Williams from what he had learned from Garth; that the PAC would be campaigning against incumbents and the PAC believed it had suf cient ammunition to unseat them. Graney said all he told investigators was what he had been told by Garth and had later relayed to Williams. I just wanted to let (Williams) know what was out there, Graney said. That is what I told the investigators. They said that could be interpreted as a threat. I said I dont think so, and I was sure Williams and Yeager didnt see it as a threat. From Graney, investigators contacted a number of other individuals, though McElroy is the only other person known to have spoken to investigators, acknowledging she had met with investigators several times. Graney said he offered investigators a sit down with he and Garth and offered to get Garth on the phone while the investigators were in his house. They declined and the meeting among the four of them never happened. The investigators asked Graney to wear a wire and record a conversation with Garth, which he refused, Graney added. The investigation then died, Graney said, for a time before coming back to life shortly after the August primary. Graney said had he known from the outset the intent of the investigators visit he would have cut it short. If I had any idea what they were talking about I would have told them to buzz off, Graney said. I got myself bush-whacked by Williams. This thing was a comedy routine. It was Keystone Kops. This is silliness. Graney said he would like to know if Williams was authorized by the State Attorney to record their conversation. If not, he said, he believes it is illegal for an individual to record any conversation without the other persons knowledge. He said he had no clue Williams, a friend for more than a decade, was recording the campaign discussion.Witness calls state attorney investigation silliness This thing was a comedy routine. It was Keystone Kops. This is silliness.Tom Graney Witness

Elect TIM BROWN YOUR SHERIFFVOTE NOV. 6thwww.ReElectSheriBrown.com www.facebook.com/tim.brown.9883 By JACQUELINE BOSTICK747-5081 | @PCNHJBostick jbostick@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Theres something to see in the Summer Breeze neighborhood on the beach and a few screams to hear also. In the subdivision, a street named Windward Court leads to a dead end. Sitting on the left-side of the cul-de-sac is a yard of caldrons, fog, skeletons and grimacing jack-o-lanterns. A passerby could hear the witchs laugh and an old wooden door slowly creak. For the past 7-years on the beach, Peter and Sharon Golden have spent Oct. 31 in costume. Ive been doing this for the children for years, Peter Golden said. I love to scare the kids. The couple invests in frightening neighborhood children by making their yard a spook-haven and dressing as mummies, witches and zombies. One year we had a cardboard casket; he dressed up like a mummy in a cof n and waited for the children to come by, Sharon Golden said about her husband. She added that she was sitting on the porch in a chair welcoming children to give them candy when Peter Golden popped out of the cardboard casket and scared the kids beyond belief. Golden said his xation with Halloween began when he was a young boy in the small town of Haledon, New Jersey. The local re department would throw a Halloween party for the children and all the kids sat down and watched a moviesometimes it would be a 1940s old terror lm. After joining the military, Golden said the family embraced the holiday because he normally spent Christmas time in service, away from home. In previous years the couple has been in costume as Mexican Bandit and American Indian Girl, Viking and Gothic Princess and Butter y and Werewolf. Golden described his werewolf year as a successful attempt to petrify the neighborhood kids. I came out the door on all fours and the whole porch cleared out, he added. Its a thrill for a child to experience that. The inside of their home is frightful as well. Upon an end table, guests can watch a battery operated giant amputated hand move about freely, no strings attached; a machete holding skeleton stands in the hallway, warning guests about attempting to pass by; and upon their dinner table sit life-like rats and skull head salt and pepper shakers; above it, a shingled black chandelier. Every year, the couple invites a few guests over to engage in the celebration of the holiday. Sharon Golden said she often prepares festive confectionaries like white chocolate skull and cross bones candy. Golden said the nicest feedback he ever received for his efforts was when a young lady, who had experienced the couples frightening performance as a child, visited him to introduce her daughter to them. The house is ready to be viewed and becomes active around 5:45 p.m.; lights go off about 9:30 p.m. Photos by ANDREW P JOHNSON | The News HeraldPeter Golden, dressed as a zombie, Sharon Golden, dressed as a pirate, and their home in Panama City Beach.

It was a nondistrict game between two of the more successful Class 1A programs in recent years. Chipley improved to 5-4, with Freeport falling to 3-6. Freeport senior quarterback Owen Cole connected with junior Morgan Hardee in the end zone with 8:21 to play in the rst quarter and senior Nick Russells kick gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. It was short-lived as Chipley running back McCrary scored three rst-half touchdowns and the Tigers were in command. Less than 30 seconds after Freeports touchdown, McCrary answered with a 52-yard scoring run. Fletcher Dillmores kick tied the game. With 3:02 left in the rst quarter, the Tigers took the lead on McCrarys 17-yard run that capped a 55-yard, six-play drive. With 5:48 remaining in the half, Chipley again found the end zone with McCrary busting over the middle from 3 yards to make it 20-7. The Tigers rst-half response wasnt completed as with 2:07 left in the second quarter junior quarterback Jordan Finch connected with junior wide receiver Dallas Oliver in the end zone. Chipley led 26-7 at intermission. The Tigers scored on their rst possession of the second half when sophomore wide receiver Carlon Smiths TD capped a 46yard, four-play drive. Dillmores kick gave the Tigers a 33-7 lead. Freeport responded with an 80-yard, seven-play drive, helped by a Tiger personal foul. The march ended with senior wide receiver Zach Fordem nabbing Coles pass in the end zone. The Tigers nished the scoring as the third quarter expired when sophomore running back Wyatt Brock ran up the middle from 2 yards to cap a 57-yard, nine-play effort. Chipley heads to Bonifay next week to face Holmes County in a key District 3-1A game.McCrary sparks Chipley to non-district triumphPHOTO BY RANDAL SEYLERThe Chipley Tigers manhandled the Freeport Bulldogs 39-13 Friday in non-conference play at Philip Rountree Stadium in Chipley. The Tigers travel to Bonifay this week to face the Blue Devils. Crestview overwhelms MosleyBy PAT McCANN747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY If Friday night was a referendum on postseason motivation versus pride, motivation won out handily at Tommy Oliver Stadium. Crestview, still striving to become a factor in District 2-6A, downed Mosley 39-7 to remain relevant in the playoff discussion at 2-2, 4-5 overall. Mosley, already eliminated, slid to 0-4, 3-5. More to the point, the game showcased a team with a number of players who soon will be suiting up on Saturdays against an overmatched opponent. Micah Reed, a verbal commitment to UCF, rushed for 108 yards and the rst two touchdowns of the game to spark the Bulldogs. Junior defensive end Denzel Ware, who already has announced his intention to attend Florida State, sacked Mosley quarterback Zach Rhodes for a 16-yard loss early in the game. That negated a fumble recovery by Zach Warnick on a muffed punt by Crestview that set up the Dolphins on the Bulldogs 21. The series ended in a punt, and Mosley eventually trailed 17-0 at halftime. Reed scored on runs of 9 and 40 yards, the latter coming only 18 seconds before halftime and appearing to take the steam out of the Dolphins. Crestviews defense already had punished a depleted Mosley offense. Of 15 rst-half running plays by the Dolphins, only three resulted in positive yardage. Mosley momentarily clawed back into contention midway through the third quarter to trail 17-7. Louie Abbotts interception and 30-yard return set up the Dolphins on the Crestview 31, and they took 10 plays to reach the end zone. Rhodes engineered a pair of fourthdown conversions, nding wide receiver Nat Dixon for 6 yards and sneaking for 2 yards behind Caleb Houghton. Rhodes found Dixon on a fade route in the corner of the end zone from 8 yards with 5:37 left in the quarter and Christian Marshs extra point narrowed the gap to 10 points. Until the ensuing kickoff. Jaylynn Robinson bobbled Marshs pooch kick at his 20 and dribbled the ball momentarily around his feet. When he gained possession he easily broke contain down the visiting sideline and picked up a pair of vicious blocks to go 80 yards. It sparked a trio of long scoring plays as the Bulldogs turned a triumph into a rout. Robinson streaked 69 yards on a sweep to the right on Crestviews opening possession of the fourth quarter. Emmanuel Reed duplicated the yardage and the result with 5:19 remaining. Crestview enjoyed an advantage of beef and muscle on both side of the football and it showed on the stat sheet. The Bulldogs piled up 361 yards to 171 for the Dolphins. Mosleys back eld, already missing leading rusher Ryan Rogers and forced to juggle the roster, was further limited in the second half. In the space of two minutes, Rhodes was knocked from the game when Ware broke through for a clean hit during an incompletion, halfback Andrew Hardrick had to leave the game and Warnick, moved from defense to supplement the halfback position was sidelined. All but Warnick returned by the fourth quarter. However, Rhodes and Dixon supplied most of the offensive output by teaming on eight completions for 103 yards. Rhodes was 11-24 overall with one interception, and that on his nal pass of the game. Mosley completes its district schedule at rst-place Navarre next week. Crestview could stake a claim to a shootout berth or a playoff spot outright by winning its district nale against visiting Niceville.From Staff ReportsBLOUNTSTOWN Javakiel Brigham led a balanced scoring attack with two rushing touchdowns and Hunter Jordan completed his two passes for scores to lead Blountstown to a 51-0 rout of Franklin County on Friday. Jordan tossed scoring strikes to Josh Taylor and Tripp Taylor to give the Tigers an early 21-0 lead. Brigham rushed for 45 yards and scored twice in the rst half to propel the Tigers to a 44-0 lead. Fabian Solomon added 41 yards and the games nal score in the fourth quarter. Alex Mayorga led Blountstown with 75 yards rushing and he added a secondquarter touchdown. Bobby Andrews also scored on the ground and the Tigers racked up 237 yards rushing. Blountstown dominated on defense, holding Franklin County to minus-63 total yards. Ladarius Rhodes was the lone Franklin County rusher with positive yardage, as he nished with 9 yards and the Seahawks longest gain of 7.

Proven leadership from the Battleeld to the Schoolhouse. By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner Bmilner@pcnh.com SAND HILLS You can forgive Bozeman for looking ahead to next week. Bucks coach Loren Tillman only hopes they saved a few points. Bozeman overcame an early hiccup to race ast visiting Wewahitchka 49-12 on Friday. It was Bozemans nal tuner for the District 3-1A nale at South Walton next week when the Bucks will try to wrap up their second playoff berth in school history. We wanted to come out, play enough to be sharp and not get anyone hurt, said Tillman, whose parents are Wewa natives. Thats what we had to do to go into next Friday and give ourselves a chance to compete. Wewa (2-7), which lost for the fth time in six games, struck rst on the games opening possession. Rashard Rainie carried 66 yards on the games rst play and Jalyn Addison scored from 3 to give the upset-minded Gators a 6-0 lead. Thoughts of pulling off a shocker faded quickly, as James Jernigan raced 20 yards for a tying score four plays later. Jernigan added touchdown receptions of 34 and 16 yards from Jacob Martinez and Jovani Bell scored twice to stake the Bucks to a 42-6 halftime lead. Martinez also rushed for a rsthalf score to help Bozeman (6-2) score 42 unanswered points. The running clock in the second half put a merciful end to the night for the overmatched Gators. Wewa has a lot of youth and they just need to keep playing, Tillman said. I see a bright future for them. Rainie led Wewa with 109 yards rushing on 18 carries. Addison added a second score at the end of the third quarter. The Gators were held to 199 yards for the game after amassing 77 on their rst drive. Bell exploded for a game-high 138 yards on the ground on only ve totes. Martinez added 66 yards rushing and was 4 of 5 for 93 through the air. Jernigan chipped in 83 total yards. Bozeman can assure itself no worse than a tiebreaker with a win over South Walton. The Bucks will clinch second place and a regional spot with a win and a Holmes County victory over Chipley. Wewa is idle next week.

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Halloween is today, and many pet owners have already purchased their animals costume. Although these outts can be fun and festive, the wrong outt can be harmful to your animal. Although costumes are a fun way to interact with your pet, Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor and director of general surgery services at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, stressed the importance of monitoring your pet in the clothing.  Cute little costumes are fun to put on your animals while trick-or-treating, but when you are not watching your animals, make sure to take them off, Stickney said.  He also explained that this also goes for sweaters, jackets or any other pet clothing. While it may seem like pets need clothes to stay warm, they can do more harm than good if the animal is not monitored.  More than likely your animal does not need to keep clothing on to stay warm, even in the winter, Stickney said. If you have a house pet that only goes outside for 15-20 minutes to go to the bathroom, they will be more than ne without the clothing.  A nother thing Stickney recommended avoiding in pet costumes are dangly pieces of fabric, bells, or other small objects that the animal can chew off and swallow. These things can cause the pet to choke and possibly cause blockages in their intestinal track.  Ribbons and bows are especially dangerous for cats, Stickney added. These are things cats love to play with and chew on, but if they swallow them it causes what is called a linear foreign body. This requires emergency surgery to remove or it can saw a hole in the intestines.  S tickney also warned of a pet being allergic to the clothing material or the laundry detergent used to wash the costume. If an animal is allergic to a costume or clothing, Stickney said it might develop an itchy, red rash.  The best thing to do is to take the outt off of the pet and retire it, Stickney said. There is no reason to cause your pet pain and discomfort.  F inally, Stickney stressed that it is important to make sure the outts t correctly. Anything that can wrap around the pets neck, paws, or legs can cause them to panic or injure themselves.  This is especially common in small or young dogs as many costumes may not t them correctly because of their size, Stickney said. The best way to select pet costumes or clothing is to buy them at a pet store where you can take your pet with you and try the outt on them. That way you will know for sure that it not only ts correctly but that it also looks as adorable as you hoped.  About Pet TalkPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Gov. Jennifer Carroll met with the newly restructured Air Force Materiel Command, Commander Brig. Gen. Arnold Bunch, Jr. and the 96th Test Wing Commander at Eglin Air Force Base, Brigadier General David Harris to get a status update on the recent consolidation completion required by BRAC 2005 of the Air Force Materiel Command.  Bunch reassured Carroll that he was committed to getting the desired mission at Eglin to increase efciency and effectiveness to stand up the mission and support a ll personnel.  He also stated that, no jobs or pay were lost at Eglin due to the consolidat ion.  The consolidation will realize $109 million/year cost avoidance to the Air Force. Carroll raised concerns about the looming national security threat of cyber terrorism and asked General Bunchs help to grow more mission opportunities for the 96th Test Wing to be the leader in the Air Force for research and development of counter cyber security measures. Carroll said, there is a great opportunity for Florida to utilize the talent and extraordinary asset at the Wing to consolidate a cross section of departments and agencies to enhance and conduct proper systems test and development to combat the next greatest threat to our nation. Bunch was pleased with his visit to Florida and applauded Carrolls efforts to advance the Gulf Regional Airspace Strategic Initiative.

FAITH BSectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Some traditional Mohawks are treating the naming of the nations rst Native American saint with skepticism and fear that the Roman Catholic Church is using it to shore up its image and marginalize traditional spiritual practices. They see the story of Kateri Tekakwitha as yet another reminder of colonial atrocities and religious oppression. I was a recipient of these historical profanities and want to ensure this does not happen again, said Doug George-Kanentiio, a Mohawk writer who left Catholicism to follow traditional longhouse spiritual practices. The daughter of a Mohawk chief and a Catholic Algonquin woman, Kateri was born in 1656 about 40 miles northwest of Albany and in the heart of the Iroquois Confederacy to which the Mohawks belong. She was orphaned at age 4 when smallpox wiped out her family and much of her village and left her blinded and dis gured. A Catholic convert at 20, she settled in Kahnawake, a Mohawk settlement south of Montreal where Jesuits had a mission and where she and other women performed morti cation rituals such as selfogging as part of their faith. At her death at age 24, Kateris smallpox scars reportedly vanished, and later she was reported to appear before several people. She is buried at a shrine on Kahnawake. Speaking in English and French at her canonization last Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI noted how unusual it was in Kateris culture for her to choose to devote herself to her Catholic faith. Shes seen very much as a bridge between native culture and Christianity, said the Rev. Jim Martin, a Jesuit priest. He said the Jesuit missionaries took great pains to learn the native languages and tried their best to present the Christian faith using words, phrases and ideas from the native cultures. Traditional Mohawks recognize the reverence their Catholic relatives and friends have for Kateri, said Chaz Kader, a Mohawk journalist who was raised Catholic but follows ancient longhouse traditions now. But many remain troubled by how the church portrays her life. The story of Kateri told in various church writings describes her as maintaining her faith despite torment by her people, suffering ostracism and persecution at the hands of her own tribe and eventually eeing to Canada. I disagree with the characterizations of the other Mohawks in the Jesuit accounts of Kateri, Kader said. The contrast of good Mohawks and bad Mohawks still is affecting our people. Traditional Mohawks have struggled to keep their spiritual traditions and ancient language alive despite pressure from non-Indians to adopt European religion, culture and language. These traditionalists have established Mohawk language-immersion schools and follow a clanbased government separate from the elected tribal government recognized by the U.S., Canada and New York state. To outsiders, they are associated with an image of bad Mohawks who smuggle goods across the border and refuse to collect state taxes on cigarette sales, Kader said, and the good Mohawks are the ones who went to Rome to celebrate Kateri, he said. Its dif cult to gauge just how widespread the feelings are given the factionalism that pervades the nation and the circumspection they favor when dealing with the media. But many Mohawks interviewed downplayed any controversy and joined Catholics who see Kateri as a uniting gure and hope her elevation to sainthood will help heal old wounds. Its so nice to see God showing all the avors of the world, said Gene Caldwell, a Native American member of the Menominee reservation in Neopit, Wis., who attended Kateris canonization with his wife, Linda. The Native Americans are enthralled to have Kateri attain sainthood, he said. Russell Roundpoint, director of the Mohawk history and cultural center at Akwesasne, said her sainthood is not a contentious issue by any stretch of the imagination. The Mohawk people are very proud of the fact that she has attained such a high level, he said. Sister Jennifer Votraw is director of communications for the diocese where the Mohawk reservation is located. Though the diocese doesnt provide direct pastoral care to the Mohawks, Votraw belongs to the order the Sisters of St. Joseph, nuns who regularly aid the priests who minister to the tribe. She said years of interactions between the church and the tribe demonstrate a mutual respect. Still, she knows there are traditional Mohawks who will never be swayed in their view of the church and might resent Kateris canonization as a ploy to improve the churchs image among Native Americans. They believe very rmly in their religion, which is Mohawk, she said. You just have to respect that. Orenda Boucher, a Mohawk humanities professor at Kiana Institution, a Native American college near Montreal, said there are mixed feelings and no easy answer to the question of what Kateri represents to Mohawks or the world. A lot of my friends who are traditionalists see Kateri as tied into the story of colonization that has deeply affected Kahnawake, and to the atrocities of the church, she said. Boucher said to understand the complexities of Kateris life, its important for people to look beyond the biographies written by clergymen who focus on what they consider her Christian virtues. George-Kanentiio said traditional Iroquois worry that Kateris sainthood could be used as way to encourage Native Americans to eschew their ancestral values for Catholic dogma. It should never obscure the best elements of our aboriginal spirituality, nor should Kateris personal behaviors, given their extremities, be endorsed as a model for women anywhere, he said, referring to her self-mutilation with whips, thorns and hot coals. Women in particular need not kneel in supplication to any man or any god but to rise to dance and sing in true joy, he said. We can never accept any institution which actively suppresses women or quali es their potential. But when the holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be lled with power, and you will be my witnesses...

This is certainly not an easy question to answer, although we usually know it when adulthood is lacking and someone is acting childishly. There is a lot of growing up required of us nowadays and thus adulthood is being delayed by an extended period of adolescence. This leaves us with lots of twentyand thirty-year-old individuals who are living at home and taking on very few if any of the responsibilities to be responsible for ones actions and ones life and to stop expecting other people to take care of you. It also entails taking responsibility for where one is in life and refusing to blame our parents, teachers, or others for our lack of success. At some point, we all have to grow up and realize that our life is OURS and no one elses, and however much others may have contributed to it, only we can shape our own lives. Whether this is always true is debatable; parents and teachers do have an impact on children and the adults they will become. But, it is best for each of us to take responsibility for our own lives and start acting and believing as if we are the masters of our own fates. Perhaps that is what it really means to be grown up: to strive to mold and fashion our own lives and to live by our own standards and ideals. And, to do it with the faith of one who takes complete responsibility for every aspect of his or her existence.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy ofWhen I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.

Deputies responded to a home on in Grand Ridge on Oct. 24 in reference to a disturbance. Deputies say Carol Lynn Frazier, 59, had pointed a .22 caliber ri e at her father, Daniel Frazier, in a threatening manner. Carol Lynn Frazier was arrested on charges of aggravated assault. Frazier was taken to the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await rst appearance. JCSO: Car stolen from Microtel parking lotMARIANNA An 18-year-old Marianna woman has been arrested on charges of grand theft auto by the Jackson County Sheriffs Of ce. On Oct. 4, a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier owned by Ollie Williams was stolen from the parking lot of the Microtel on Whitetail Drive. On the morning of Oct. 5, Williams and two witnesses observed a black female driving the car on Highway 71. After further investigation, the female was identi ed as Breyuanna Hall, 18, of Marianna. It was discovered Hall had been arrested on unrelated charges that same afternoon. On Oct. 25, Hall was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle. She remains in Jackson County Correction Facility to await rst appearance.Facebook scam reportedThe Jackson County Sheriffs Of ce received a report of a scam utilizing Facebook. Through this scam, the victim is asked to like former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum. After accepting, the user receives a Facebook messages from someone claiming to work for Santorum. These messages will state the availability of government grants and ask for personal information. It then will state the different amounts of grants and the amount of fees you need to pay up front. These fees are to be paid via Western Union. The grant money supposedly would be sent to the victim via UPS. This is a scam. Do not respond to these messages.Traf c stop leads to arrestMARIANNA A Laurel Hill man was arrested on an outstanding warrant after a routine traf c stop. At 8:46 p.m. Oct. 24, a Jackson County sheriffs deputy observed a Ford F-250 traveling north on Highway 71 with no headlights. The deputy conducted a traf c stop as the vehicle pulled into the Pilot parking lot. During the traf c stop, it was discovered the driver, William Ansley of Laurel Hill, had an active warrant from Seminole County, Ga., for fraud and insuf cient funds. Ansley was arrested and transported to the Jackson County Correctional Facility to be held for Seminole County.

B8| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, October 31, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By CAROLINE M.L. POTTERMonster Contributing Writer As soon as the calendar turns over to September, retailers will know how much help they will need to handle the holidays. The National Retail Federation predicts retailers will add 585,000 to 625,000 seasonal workers in 2012, which is comparable to the 607,500 seasonal employees hired last year. Recent consumer confidence readings have been relatively weak and unemployment remains stubbornly high, John Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, said in a statement. The mixed picture is likely to compel retail employers to proceed cautiously when it comes to hiring extra workers for the holiday season. Look for many to start at last years levels and hire additional workers only if strong sales early in the season warrant it. If you want to get a distinct advantage over other would-be seasonal workers, plan your job search carefully using these tips.Know where to lookThe best opportunities for seasonal job seekers will be at the large discounters, like Target and Wal-Mart, which will be heavily favored by cost-conscious consumers this holiday season, Challenger said. But be prepared to look past retail sales jobs for other opportunities. The big-box stores need extra workers on the floor, but they also need extra workers in their shipping facilities and overnight stocking positions, he said. Opportunities also exist outside of retail, in areas like catering and with shipping companies such as UPS and FedEx.Start earlyEmployers already know how many people they will need, so start searching today. Even if a job does not begin for another month, its best to lock in an opportunity sooner rather than later.Dress the partWhen youre looking for any kind of job, show up dressed in business-casual attire, at the very least. Even if the seasonal work for which youre applying is outdoors (think Christmas trees), wear neat slacks, polished shoes and a collared shirt.Be prepared If you are stopping into an establishment to shop for seasonal work, be prepared to fill out an application and participate in an impromptu interview. Bring your own pen, necessary documentation to prove you can work in the U.S. legally, a resume if you have one and all contact information for your professional references. Be sure you block off enough time to meet with a few supervisors should the opportunity arise.Know what you wantIf you are applying for seasonal work, know precisely what you offer to a potential employee and what you want in return. Determine what hourly rate is acceptable to you, what hours and days you are available, if you have the wherewithal for a particular position (some might involve lifting heavy boxes or standing for the greater part of your shift), and if the location is viable in terms of fuel costs and transportation options. (Will you always have access to a reliable car or a convenient bus line?) You do not want to make a commitment only to leave an employer in the lurch during the hectic holidays.Be flexibleThe best way to make sure you stand out from other seasonal talent is to present yourself as flexible but only if you really are. A hiring manager revealed that demanding a specific schedule from prospective employers is a sure way to jettison your chances at landing a job. Instead, advised Challenger, Temporary workers must be prepared to be flexible, whether it is hours or type of work. Either can vary as the holiday season progresses.Boost your chance of landing a seasonal job Transfer Drivers: Need 20 Contract Drivers, CDL A or B to relocate vehicles to and from various locations throughout USNo forced dispatch: (800)501-3783 www.mamotransportation.com A Few Pro Drivers Needed Top Pay & 401K.

The 15 items had a combined value of $64,759.10. Investigators say other items value had been in ated to exaggerate the insurance claim. Insurance fraud (more than $20,000 and less than $100,000) is a second-degree felony. These allegations are not true, Ruben Laurel said Friday. This has nothing to do with our practice, and we have hired an attorney to take care of it. Among the 15 items claimed lost were a Brunswick Bridgeport pool table, 250 CDs, 250 DVDS and 200 VHS tapes, 60 XBox video games and 85 Wii video games, SCUBA tanks and regulators, 350 Barbie dolls, Pampered Chef kitchen utensils, 53 bottles of wine, champagne and liquor and two 6-foot surf boards. State Fire Marshal Matt Streichert investigated the re scene on the night of the blaze and determined the re originated in the kitchen area, causing extensive damage to the house. Jerry Troy Bradley, Lorrie Laurels brother, told the re marshal he had been cooking on the stove before leaving the house and possibly left cooking grease on the stovetop, forgetting to turn off the burner, according to the af davit. He returned a short time later to nd the re department attempting to extinguish the re. The Laurels were insured by Cotton States Mutual Insurance Co. of Atlanta, and the re took place one day before the policy cancellation date, according to the af davit. They led an insurance claim and provided a detailed listing of contents lost, with a loss valued at $435,905. Of that amount, $107,580.89 was for items purchased within one year of the insurance claim. The insurer alleges items claimed as damaged or lost in the re were not present at the time of the re and/or have been inated, according to the af davit. The Laurels were examined under oath, and upon review of the examination, Detective David Lindsay of the Division of Insurance Fraud learned the couple had claimed an extensive list of items lost or damaged in the house re to include items not discovered in an investigation of the re scene by Fire Investigator J. Michael Hawkins of Fire Analysis & Investigative Resources, according to the af davit. Cotton States Mutual Insurance Co. had hired Hawkins, who told the detective that 15 items on the claim were not present at the time of the re, according to his investigation. The combined value of those items alone is $64,759.10. Bradley F. Smith of Paul Davis Restoration in Panama City was hired to perform a detailed inventory of the debris in February, and he failed to locate items listed in the insurance claim at the re scene. Denise Zdenahlik, senior investigator with Cotton States Mutual Insurance Co., told Lindsay the claim has not been settled and alleges the Laurels insurance claim was in ated.

Probable cause was found to believe Robert Skidmore III, Charlotte County Commissioner, misused his position to ask for special treatment in obtaining a liquor license for a third party, and by asking County employees to look for and selectively enforce code violations against his former wifes new family. The Commission also found probable cause to believe Skidmore requested a County employee continue a hearing for the bene t of himself or another person. However, the Commission found no probable cause to believe that he misused his position to request that staff waive the code violations of a constituent. Finding that the public interest would not be served by further proceedings due to the totality of the circumstances and because he sought the advice of counsel, the Commission voted to dismiss allegations that Walton County Commissioner Larry Jones employment with waste management, which had a contract with Walton County, created a prohibited con ict or that his votes on measures affecting the company created a prohibited voting con ict. The Commission also found no probable cause to believe he solicited or accepted employment with Waste Management in return for his of cial action, accepted the employment when he knew or should have known it was offered to in uence his of cial action, or used inside information gained by reason of his public position to secure a bene t for his employer. An allegation that he misused his position to bene t Waste Management was also dismissed with a nding of no probable cause. Probable cause was also found to believe Rivera violated Article II, Section 8, of the Florida Constitution with regard to six allegations surrounding his nancial disclosure: that he failed to report or did not properly report income, stocks and bonds, or secondary income sources on his 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 CE Form 6s; and that he failed to le a CE Form 6F within 60 days of leaving of ce in the Florida House. However, the Commission issued a nding of no probable cause regarding an allegation that Mr. Rivera had a voting conict when he voted on HB 1047 which bene ted SFEI, as the alleged violations fell outside the ve-year statute of limitations. The Commission found no probable cause to believe Paul Mac Work, DeFuniak Springs City Council member, entered into a real estate listing agreement given to in uence him, or misused his position to direct the efforts of the DeFuniak Springs Code Enforcement Board. An allegation that he had a real estate listing agreement with a homeowner while the homeowner was subject to the regulation of the City was also dismissed with a nding of no probable cause. The Commission dismissed the following complaints for lack of legal suf ciency: Warren J. Yeager Jr., Gulf County Commissioner; Kevin Kipp, Executive Director of the University of South Florida College of Nursing Research Center; Tanya Murphy, Director of the Rothman Center for Pediatric Neuropsychiatry at the University of South Florida; Rana Erbrick, Cape Coral City Councilmember; two complaints against Alice Frierson, Deputy Mayor of Arcadia; two complaints against Robert Heine, Arcadia City Council member; two complaints against Robert Allen, Arcadia City Council member; Eleanor Sobel, member of the Florida Senate; Bob Gualtieri, Pinellas County Sheriff; Cheryl Byers, Director of Research Integrity and Compliance at the University of South Florida; James Robinson, Pinellas County School District General Counsel; Peggy OShea, Pinellas County School Board Member; Robin Wikle, Pinellas County School Board Member; Terry Krassner, Pinellas County School Board Member; Carol Cook, Pinellas County School Board Member; Janet Clark, Pinellas County School Board Member; two complaints against Keith Fitzgerald, former member of the Florida House; Myron Rosner, North Miami Beach Mayor; Paul Eichner, Chief Legal Counsel for the Broward County Health Department; Anthony Vomero, Acting Environmental Administrator of the Broward County Health Department; Thelbert David Morgan, Escambia County Sheriff; Lawrence Bustle, Manatee County Commissioner and former Palmetto Mayor; Roy Johnson, Holly Hill Mayor; Nancy Bostock, Pinellas County Commissioner; Kenneth Welch, Pinellas County Commissioner; Neil Brickeld, Pinellas County Commissioner; KAREN SEEL; Pinellas County Commissioner; and, William P. Cervone, State Attorney for the 8th Judicial Circuit. In an advisory opinion, the Commission determined that a prohibited conict of interest would not be created were the law rm of a candidate for the Broward County Commission to continue to serve as special counsel to a municipality located within the County, should the candidate be elected and take of ce. Although the municipality and County have an ongoing dispute over the expansion of an airport and its impact on the municipality and its citizens, the Commission found no prohibited continuing or frequently recurring con ict or impediment to duty would be created, because the airport expansion is a unique situation and neither the candidate nor his law rm have had any involvement in the citys dispute with the county.

Call 638-0212. For topics, your writer is capitalizing on the 75th anniversary celebration of the Panama City NewsHerald, currently in progress for the entire year of 2012. This is the third article re ecting on our experiences for the 17-year period of February 1952 until December 1969, the time Hester and I were in Panama City. This was in conjunction with my job at Sears, Roebuck and Company for six years, then with the Florida Probation and Parole Commission for eleven additional years. Hester and I were married on Oct. 4, 1952 in Cottonwood, Ala. We spent our honeymoon in our newly purchased two-bedroom frame home at 1118 Fairland Avenue. This was one of two new homes built on property left vacant when the brick homes, known as Lisenby Project, were built in the early 1940s. Our house was built by Frank Dama and Eugene Lokey, who had a construction rm at that time. It was nanced by a new nancial institution, Security Federal Savings and Loan Association, managed by Mr. Casper Harris, with Mrs. Florence Gay and Mrs. Jean Thomas Smith as tellers and assistants. Ours was one of their rst loans. The Prattler had been employed with Sears for six months and had been assigned the job as receiving manager. The job seemed to be a dead end for the recent graduate from the University of Florida with a degree in sales and sales Management. Each manager, from Mr. Richard (Dick) Murphy, Mr. Charles S. Sanders and Mr. Bob Hudson, assured me that I was in an unof cial management training program and was being groomed for a promotion when the time came. After more than six years and after meeting some ne fellow employees who became lifelong friends, your writer applied for a job with the Florida Probation and Parole Commission and was hired. For the next 11 years, I had an of ce in the Bay County Courthouse and the opportunity to meet elected of cials who I knew were in of ce but had never had the opportunity to meet. The three circuit judges, comprising the 14th Judicial Circuit at that time, were the Honorable E. Clay Lewis, Jr., Honorable W. L. Fitzpatrick and Honorable E. C. Welch, whose service was primarily in Jackson County. In a few years, Honorable Joseph W. Bailey, county judge of Bay County, was appointed to the Circuit Court Bench upon the retirement of Judge Welch and Honorable Robert L. McCrary, Jr., county judge of Jackson County was elevated to the Circuit Court Bench upon the death of Judge Lewis. My entire service was with the above judges and mostly with Judges Fitzpartick, Bailey and McCrary. Mr. J. Frank Adams, of Blountstown, was the elected State Attorney and served all six counties with no assistants. I well recall when attorney, William E. (Bill) Harris, was appointed as a part time assistant state attorney, working mostly the cases in Bay County. Later, William C. (Bill) Mongoven, a Chipley lawyer, was added as an assistant state attorney, working the Northern counties of the circuit. Defense lawyers in those days were primarily W. Fred Turner, Leo C. Jones and J. C. Bodiford. The Bay County Sheriff was the colorful and wellloved M. J. (Doc) Daf n, whose career extended for many years with much history and stories, written and carried down through the years with one appearing in the Heritage of Bay County Book (2005), authored by his kinsman, Rev. J. R. Daf n. In Bay County, Bruce Collins was the elected Clerk of Court and served many years before losing the post to youthful aspirant, Harold Bazzel. Harold held the job until retirement. The story of Bruce and Harold, was written for the second edition of the Heritage of Bay County( 2011), by the Prattler, as was a narrative on the life of Circuit Judge Joseph W. Bailey. Gerald Conrad was serving as Tax Assessor, A. G. Appleberg was the long time Tax Collector, J. J. (Josh) Mashburn was continuing his long service as Supervisor of Elections and Tommy Smith was winding down his long tenure as Superintendent of Schools. The landmark United States Supreme Court decision in a case originating in Bay County Circuit Court, Gideon vs. Wainwright was handed down in 1963. The ruling stated that every defendant charged with a felony offense was entitled to legal counsel and if he could not afford a lawyer, the court was to appoint one for him. Soon, the decision was amended to included all misdemeanor offenses. This court case resulted in the creation of the Public Defender system in all states. Our public defender was Blountstown attorney, Virgil Q. Mayo, who held the position until retirement. Our four sons were born while we lived in Panama City. The Prattler was one of the original members of the church body which constituted St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church, 2100 Michigan Avenue, midst the wild palmettos, scrub oak, sand pines and snakes prevalent on the site. That congregation has survived until this present day and is presently under the pastor ship of Elder J. C. Stanaland. Your writer resigned the parole job in late 1969 and moved to Chipley for the many new experiences which have come his way. Upon being elected county judge in Washington County Judge in 1976, the opportunity to serve in Bay County presented itself on many occasions On each assignment, I was always welcomed and treated royally by the court of cials known earlier. I am still on the invitation list to the judges Christmas Party and other functions of the court, including investitures and retirement ceremonies. Sadly, it has been my responsibility to attend too many funerals of those judges, and other key employees, who have departed this life. Hester and I still receive invitations to the Sears Retirees Christmas Event and have able to keep in touch with many of them down through the years. We have also lost many of those friends in death also. See you all next week. When I met DeAnna Oldham at the chamber breakfast at Hardees last month, I knew I had to interview her for my Happy Corner. She impressed me immediately with her enthusiasm about her work and especially about Bonifay. Some people move to a small place like ours and nd lots to complain about. She nds lots to brag about. Though her mother hails from nearby Geneva, Ala., she married a career Air Force man and raised her family in California until DeAnna and her brother were in high school when they moved from there to Milton. DeAnna married right out of high school while attending the Milton campus of The University of Florida. After two children, she was divorced, and as a single parent, she worked in food service and continued her education until she received her degree in business administration from UF. Shawnees restaurant in Pensacola promoted her to manager, but she loved working with people so she took a job as Church Administrator for Central Chapel associated with Churches of God. Her concern for women who came to the church needing help led her to start a ministry called Women in Transition where she helped them to nd agencies to help them with expenses; to nd jobs; to nd places to live; to nd clothes to wear for jobs; how to interview for jobs, and ETC. The church continues that ministry still. When her husband, Joshua Oldham, the son of Eugene and Julia of Bonifay, was transferred here for a job with the state three years ago, she made this their home and went to work as manager for Hardees of Bonifay. She has treated that establishment, not as a job with a hamburger chain, but as if it were her own private restaurant. She knows her clientele. The mens group who eat breakfast there every morning are her personal friends. The ladies group who meet there on Fridays for lunch are known by name. The sisters who meet there weekly get special attention. The teens that congregate there on Friday nights are greeted by Mrs. Oldham. They know they are welcome there, but if they need correction, she supplies that. Relay For Life has special meaning for DeAnna, and she has agreed to be the event chair for Bonifays Relay in April of 2013. Her dad is now undergoing treatment for a recurrence of Hodgkin Lymphoma after an 11year period of remission. About 12 years ago as she was holding her sons hand as they walked for the relay in Pensacola, her dad was battling his rst round of chemo from the disease. The son saw the luminaria being placed and he said, We dont want Granddaddys name on one of these. DeAnna realized that both her grandfathers had died with cancer, and she vowed that it was not going to rob her children of a grandfather if she could prevent it. Since that time she has been involved with Relay and welcomes the opportunity to lead her newly adopted homes event. Her goal is to answer any questions the public has, to teach us the mission of the American Cancer Society, and to raise awareness for the need to continue research to nd a cure for this killer which is second only to heart attacks in the U.S Bonifay Relays theme is Roping For A Cure and the sponsorship goal is $2000, $1600 of which has already been pledged. Julia Bullington is the survivor chairman and she intends to nd at least 50 survivors to attend the event where they will be honored guests DeAnna says, Bonifay is now my home. If I had known such a community existed while I was rearing my children, I would have come here sooner. Her children are Hannah Johnston who is a prevet student at University of West Florida, and her son Daniel Johnston is also at UWF hoping to pursue a degree in sports medicine or some related eld. We welcome DeAnna and Joshua to Bonifay and look forward to future associations with this lady who is so willing to give of herself and her resources to make our community a better place. I urge you, along with her, to get your team together and begin planning for April 19, 2013. Relay is a lot of fun and is a major source of funds to ght cancer. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Perry and Hester Lucas Wells as a youthful couple, as we appear in a photograph made on the grounds of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church. Keep God in mind when voting The upcoming election will be the most important election of our lifetime. The elected president will be able to place one or more judges on the Supreme Court. These judges are for their lifetime. The decisions handed down by them will affect our children and their children event o the fourth generation. These judges usually votes their decision as the President who appoints them. I speak not as a Democrat or Republican; I speak as a man of God. Today in many schools, the word God has been stricken, or the phrase God Bless America forbidden. We fought, gave our blood and are still ghting under a ag that in many places, even our homes, we are forbidden to display. The Devil with a capital D can go into our schools and sponsor a dance, put a preacher cant go in and hold a church service. In Jeremiah 1:5, God said, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee: and before thow came forth out of the womb I sancti es thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Therefore, God knew us before we are formed, for we are formed in the mind of God, and are humans at the moment of conception. Therefore the morning after pill, is the killing of an unborn human being. Our present government says it is a womens right to choose, even at taxpayers expense. But God says its murder. In Genesis 19:1-24, God destroyed two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, because of the sin of homosexuality. Our present government says homosexuality should be honored, and homosexual marriages should be the law of the land. God spoke to me and said, America is down to its knees and this is our last chance. I will not attempt to tell you how to vote. But I will ask you two questions: 1. Are you for morality, or against morality? 2. Are you for God or against God? Your vote will determine. I am a voice in the Wilderness Crying for the Salvation of our Nation. Bishop L.C. Frederick Vernon Businesses: Stop complaining All of us who were born and raised in the awesome county of Holmes, truly Gods country, are concerned when business owners get upset and complain about something: the Rodeo and the parades that go along with it. My granddaddy took me to my rst parade, and I still enjoy one. Yes, there are some negative sides to our awesome parade, especially to those not born and raised in Holmes County. Business owners, did you read the article in the paper concerning revenue collected? Did your business bene t from sales because of an in ux of people in our town? Perhaps if you, business owners, had a different attitude concerning local businesses it would pro t more than it does.

The Devil with a capital D can go into our schools and sponsor a dance, put a preacher cant go in and hold a church service. In Jeremiah 1:5, God said, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee: and before thow came forth out of the womb I sancti es thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Therefore, God knew us before we are formed, for we are formed in the mind of God, and are humans at the moment of conception. Therefore the morning after pill, is the killing of an unborn human being. Our present government says it is a womens right to choose, even at taxpayers expense. But God says its murder. In Genesis 19:1-24, God destroyed two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, because of the sin of homosexuality. Our present government says homosexuality should be honored, and homosexual marriages should be the law of the land. God spoke to me and said, America is down to its knees and this is our last chance. I will not attempt to tell you how to vote. But I will ask you two questions: 1. Are you for morality, or against morality? 2. Are you for God or against God? Your vote will determine. I am a voice in the Wilderness Crying for the Salvation of our Nation. Bishop L.C. Frederick Vernon Businesses: Stop complaining All of us who were born and raised in the awesome county of Holmes, truly Gods country, are concerned when business owners get upset and complain about something: the Rodeo and the parades that go along with it. My granddaddy took me to my rst parade, and I still enjoy one. Yes, there are some negative sides to our awesome parade, especially to those not born and raised in Holmes County. Business owners, did you read the article in the paper concerning revenue collected? Did your business bene t from sales because of an in ux of people in our town? Perhaps if you, business owners, had a different attitude concerning local businesses it would pro t more than it does.

Animals, houses, cows, chickens, goats and all of Gods creatures smell like money to me. Sarah Smith Bonifay Panama City News Herald The November ballot is chockablock with proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution, even more so than usual. Its worth noting that none of the amendments were sponsored by citizens groups. All originated in the Legislature, and several re ect partisan political agendas. This is a summary of where we stand on each issue. AMENDMENT 1 states the government cant require citizens to buy health insurance. This is Floridas attempt to thumb its nose at the individual mandate portion of Obamacare that was upheld by the Supreme Court. We oppose that mandate, but this amendment, if passed, would carry no legal weight as federal law trumps state law. The Florida Constitution should not be cluttered with symbolic political statements. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENTS 2, 9 and 11 expand property tax exemptions for certain groups disabled veterans who move, spouses of veterans or rst responders killed in the line of duty, lowincome seniors who have lived in their homes a long time. The state constitution already is full of such carveouts, and we have opposed most of them because they make a Swiss cheese of the tax code. We would prefer to see comprehensive tax relief for everyone, not just sympathetic groups. We recommend a NO vote on all three. AMENDMENT 3 would change the way Florida calculates its revenue limit. Currently it is capped according to the increase in personal income. Under this amendment, it would be based on the rate of in ation and population growth. This would help prevent the state from going on a spending spree during ush economic times, which is what happened prior to the 2006 downturn that led to so many painful budget cuts. Revenues collected in excess of the cap would be placed in a reserve fund for emergencies. Also, the Legislature could temporarily suspend the cap during emergencies. AMENDMENT 3 would impose spending discipline on Tallahassee while giving lawmakers exibility to loosen the purse strings when it is truly needed. We recommend a YES vote. AMENDMENT 4 would give the Legislature the power to repeal the recapture rule, which allows the taxable value of a homeowners property to rise even when the propertys market value is falling. We have supported repeal of the recapture rule for years on the grounds that it undermines the protections afforded by the Save Our Homes amendment. However, this amendment also includes other changes to homestead exemptions that would complicate the system and risk shifting the tax burden to residents. We recommend a NO vote and urge the Legislature to come back with a clean, recapture-only amendment in 2014. AMENDMENT 5 would give the Legislature more authority over state courts, including con rmation power over judicial nominations. This is a partisan power grab in response to some court rulings that have not gone the Republicans way. It would politicize the judiciary and threaten its independence. The current setup works ne. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENT 6 would change the states right-toprivacy law by prohibiting public funding of abortion. However, that is already federal and state law. Therefore, this measure seems redundant. In addition, supporters argue the amendment is needed to allow the Legislature to pass a law requiring minors to get parental consent for an abortion. But the text of the amendment says nothing about that. If proponents want to pursue that goal, they should do so explicitly in a separate amendment. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENT 8 would allow taxpayer funding, both directly and indirectly, of religious institutions. This opens the door to state-funded education vouchers that could be used at parochial schools. That is something we have supported, so long as the aid goes directly to parents and allows them to choose where it will be spent public, private or parochial. That is consistent with U.S. Supreme Court rulings. For example, in a 2002 case that upheld a Cleveland school voucher system, the court developed a private choice test for such programs: They must have a valid secular purpose. Aid must go to the parents and not to the schools. A broad class of bene ciaries must be covered. The programs must be neutral with respect to religion. There must be adequate nonreligous options. However, this measure also would open the door to government choosing which religious organizations to fund directly (under current law, state agencies can use taxpayer dollars to fund social or health-care services provided by nonpro t organizations af liated with religious groups). That is problematic. Those funds will come with government strings attached, which could undermine the religious mission of the organization. It could exacerbate religious differences among the public if the state funds groups that some citizens disagree with. If the state denies funding based on these objections, that will spark lawsuits. Legislators should craft a narrower amendment tailored speci cally to vouchers. We recommend a NO vote. AMENDMENT 10 would double the tax exemption on tangible personal property used in businesses (machinery, of ce furniture, computers, etc.). This is an existing tax, not the creation of a new one. Increasing the exemption will lower the cost of doing business, which could bene t the state economy. We recommend a YES vote. AMENDMENT 12 would change the way student representatives to the Board of Governors is chosen. This is a minor procedural matter that is unnecessary and unbecoming of the state constitution. We recommend a NO vote.

All of the candidates listed the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) as an important issue for voters; it might be a familiar item that will help voters make their choice Nov. 6. F stands for failure and CAT stands for catastrophe, Pitts said. Pitts, an opponent of FCATs way of doing education, said he would work hard at being an advocate in the House to stand up for state employees and education. We need to prepare our children for the future, not just prepare them to take a test, Pitts said. Pitts said local schools have the capacity to develop a curriculum inside state guidelines. We need to return our local schools to local control, he added. The testy subject does not end with Pitts. Holman, a write-in candidate, described his daughter as once being a high school student who had the grades to pass the 12th grade but not the FCAT, which he said was unfair. If a student goes to school 12 years, and they worked and they earned the credits they needed to graduate, I do not believe that one test should dictate to that student whether they get a diploma or not, Holman said. Theres got to be a way to come up with a solution or a plan that will keep the education at a high level but not put a big burden on the student, he added. Holman said if elected he would work with his fellow representatives to examine a solutions with a help or harm approach. The FCAT is transitioning to the FCAT 2.0, which sets new student academic content standards, according to the Florida Department of Education website. The transition will be completed this spring. Contrary to Pitts and Holman, Coley thinks the test must remain. The state has always had some type of test to measure a students level of achievement, she said. Without measurement, how would we tell if our students were receiving training that they have to have to compete in the tough economy and job market that we have today? The former educator said she believed the FCAT never will be completely taken out of the state educational system. However, as the Florida State House representative of District 7, Coley has supported the test to be replacing with End-of Course Assessments. If we dont offer a strong education, Coley added, why would new businesses and new industry want to come to our state; they have to know that we will provide a well-trained workforce.

He says theres nothing quite like it anywhere else. Its important to us that all the artists are local and theres a variety, which is exactly what they have, Merceron said Sunday afternoon. Theres an assortment of medians from glass and found objects to wood work and paintings theres everything. Its inspirational. The two-day event at Henderson State Park put on by the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation for the 17th year featured more than 100 artists and 18 different mediums. Proceeds from the event go to the All Kinds of Art program that helps bring art education and artists to area schools. Our mission is to be the leading art advocate of cultural arts in the area and to bring that to children, said Marcia Hull, executive director with the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation. The festival provides a venue for artists to showcase their work as the only ne art show in Destin. Tents lined the paved area beside Henderson Beach with everything from glasswork to watercolor paintings with the Emerald Coast as a backdrop. This will be the last year the festival is held at the beachside area. Next year, Hull said the festival will be at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village, which is set to be built and completed by spring 2013. This year is kind of bittersweet, Hull said. The new venue, though, will allow us to accommodate more artists and it will have easier access. Mabel Kaleikini of Destin said the festival is a tradition for her to attend much like the other area offerings that feature local artists. I always enjoy the beauty of the artwork and the surroundings, Kaleikini said. Its important to support local artists. Thats what its all about.

Steve Southerland has outraised challenger Al Lawson by more than $1.1 million in his campaign to regain his House District 2 seat. The numbers were posted earlier this month by the Center for Responsive Politics, which runs the website OpenSecrets.org. According to the group, Southerland, R-Panama City, was able to raise $1,602,108 through Oct. 17. Lawson, D-Tallahassee, raised $509,690. Southerlands campaign has spent $1,105,168 versus Lawsons $435,615. In 2010, Southerland spent nearly $1.3 million to capture the seat from Rep. Allen Boyd, who spent more than $3.8 million. On its OpenSecrets website, the Center for Responsive Politics has analyized individual contributors to the campaigns and listed the organizations and companies where the contributors or their spouses work. Southerlands main local contributors work for organizations that are fairly well known in the community. At the top of the list for Southerland is Gulf Coast Dermatology, $14,201, according to the latest numbers by OpenSecrets. Second is Eastern Shipbuilding, $12,500; and third is Bill Cramer Chevrolet at $10,500. The $10,000 organizations are Every Republican is Crucial PAC, Freedom Project, National Beer Wholesalers Association and the OSI Restaurant Partners. Others include GAC Contractors, $7,000, and L-3 Communications, $6,000. The Southerland campaign said the donations to the campaign were a sign the constituency was behind the congressman. The people of the district are rewarding Steve for going to Washington and keeping his promises, said Matt McCullough, communications director for Southerland. McCullough said the Lawson campaign was backed by special interest groups. Lawsons campaign said they are not worried about the spending gap. We are going to ght right through it, said Mara Sloan, spokeswoman for the Lawson campaign. Sloan also swung back at the Southerland camp, saying no one is getting more backing from Washington than Mr. Southerland. Its no surprise that the Southerland campaign is outspending the Lawson campaign, considering that theyve had two years to raise money from Washington special interest groups and big-time Washington donors, Sloan said. The Al Lawson campaign is fortunate to have the support of so many local North Floridians. Many of our top donors are actually commercial shermen right here in the second district. They have come together to support Al Lawson because they know that he will continue to stand up for them, unlike Congressman Southerland, who has not supported them during his time in Congress. Lawsons contributors work for organizations that include the American Association for Justice, $5,250, and a number of $5,000 contributions, including some from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Workers, BRIDGE PAC, Democrats Win Seats, Florida Benevolent Association, International Associations of Fireghters and the Plumbers and Pipe tters Union. Florida State University employees contributed $1,250 and Blue Cross/ Blue Shield employees put up $1,000 in support of Lawson. Special to the News CHIPLEY Take Stock In Children, a 120-credit-hour college tuition scholarship program announces it has selected eight new recipients in grades eight and nine who will be recognized by name at the annual presentation dinner on Nov. 13. Since its inception in Washington County in 2005, the local TSIC program has graduated 47 students from high school and 39 (including the 2012 high school graduates) are currently enrolled in a two-year or four-year college program or a certi cation program at technical centers. Three students are either in the one-year deferral or military deferral. For school year 2012-13, there are 29 students in grades 9-12 working toward high school graduation and receipt of the scholarship. The number of scholarship contracts to be awarded varies from year-to-year based upon the donations from Washington County businesses and individuals, as well as money in the state matching account. Since starting in 2005, the local TSIC has raised about $400,000, which excludes the state-level match, and the total value of scholarships is estimated at $775,000. The program has averaged about 10 high school graduates between Vernon and Chipley high schools each year that receive the 120-credit-hour tuition scholarship. To obtain the TSIC scholarship, a student must be in grades seven to 11, sign a contract to meet certain standards during the remaining school years until high school graduation and have family support; the parents/guardians also sign a contract to support their student. Family incomes must be below a certain level based upon the number of children in the family at the time the quali cation for TSIC is established. TSIC allocates more scholarships to grades seven to nine so the students will have more years in the program prior to high school graduation. Applications are taken each September shortly after the school year starts and are available from middle and high school guidance counselors. There is an urgent need for additional student mentors who work directly with the students and for additional student advocates who are the liaison between Take Stock and the local schools and guidance counselors. Other volunteer opportunities are available to serve on the Leadership Council that guides the total program or in fund raising. The Washington County Take Stock In Children program is locally run and locally funded and there is always work for willing hands. The TSIC program is operated by the Washington County Scholarship Foundation Inc., which holds federal and state income tax exemption with charitable organization registration. For more information about the program, to volunteer or to make a donation, contact David Solger, program coordinator, at 638-1276 or visit www.takestockinchildren.org.

Political ad paid for and approved by Debbie Kolmetz, nonpartisan, School Board District 2 FOR Wednesday, October 31, 2012 By TIM CROFT 227-7827 | @PSJ_Star tcroft@star .com Had Tom Graney of St. Joe Beach known what two men identifying themselves as investigators were inquiring about in early summer he would have told them to buzz off. The State Attorneys Of ce opened an investigation earlier this year into allegations that the Political Action Committee Citizens Improving Gulf County had attempted to extort County Commissioner Warren Yeager from a re-election campaign with allegations including complaint with the Florida Commission on Ethics. That investigation went public Thursday morning during a meeting of the Board of County Commissioners when Port St. Joe resident Christine McElroy said she had cooperated in the investigation and Commission chair Bill Williams stated several times that he had worn a wire during the investigation. McElroy was waved to the podium by commissioners during the public comment portion of the meeting and immediately began to discuss the investigation and actions by the PAC. The allegations of blackmail as Williams termed it during the Commission meeting and extortion as it was called in an Oct. 16 letter from State Attorney Glenn Hess apparently originated with a conversation Graney had with Williams in the spring before Williams decided not to seek re-election to the District 3 seat. Graney is the only name mentioned in Hesss letter, which closed the case that was subsequently reopened following Thursdays meeting, according to Public Information Of cer David Angier. Angier reported Friday morning that the le was closed and submitted a letter dated Oct. 16 from Hess to Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent Matthew Herring telling him to close the le. He said staff was trying to locate the le. By early Friday afternoon, Angier reported back that the investigation was in fact back open based upon information received since Thursdays meeting. Angier said no one else with the State Attorneys Of ce could comment on the investigation. Hess letter states that while allegations of extortion pertaining to Gulf County Commissioner Warren Yeager establishes probable cause, the entire case rested with statements made by Graney to the two investigators, one whom identi ed himself as Herring. Graney said he did not recall the name of the other investigator, and they did not offer business cards. The investigators came to Graneys house, asked to speak to him and over 45 minutes asked him a series of questions about what he knew about the PAC. Graney freely obliged, he said. In his letter, Hess noted that no other witnesses several other people were contacted and declined to answer questions as is their right, Hess wrote came forward to verify Graneys statements about the PAC. As Graney was the only witness to the allegations that Citizens Improving Gulf County had attempted to extort Yeager from the race for the District 5 seat, Hess said the charges could not be sustained beyond a reasonable doubt. A prosecutors responsibility is to charge crimes when the facts can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, Hess wrote to Herring. In this instance the question is whether there is a crime or just dirty politics; reasonable people could well differ. Graney believes he is the source of the allegations and believed they stemmed from a conversation he had with Williams concerning campaign strategy. Graney believes Williams recorded the conversation without his knowledge. Williams acknowledged wearing a wire several times during Thursdays meeting of the BOCC, calling the investigation one involving blackmail. He could not be reached for comment on Friday. Graney said his name shows up because he was one person who talked to investigators. He told investigators that in the spring he had given Williams an idea of the political landscape as the campaign season heated up and talked strategy. Graney who is not a member of the PAC, says he does not know their membership but has worked with PAC president Jim Garth in the past said the questions investigators asked when they visited weeks later quickly provided an idea that the conversation with Williams was not con dential. He told investigators what he had told Williams from what he had learned from Garth; that the PAC would be campaigning against incumbents and the PAC believed it had suf cient ammunition to unseat them. Graney said all he told investigators was what he had been told by Garth and had later relayed to Williams. I just wanted to let (Williams) know what was out there, Graney said. That is what I told the investigators. They said that could be interpreted as a threat. I said I dont think so, and I was sure Williams and Yeager didnt see it as a threat. From Graney, investigators contacted a number of other individuals, though McElroy is the only other person known to have spoken to investigators, acknowledging she had met with investigators several times. Graney said he offered investigators a sit down with he and Garth and offered to get Garth on the phone while the investigators were in his house. They declined and the meeting among the four of them never happened. The investigators asked Graney to wear a wire and record a conversation with Garth, which he refused, Graney added. The investigation then died, Graney said, for a time before coming back to life shortly after the August primary. Graney said had he known from the outset the intent of the investigators visit he would have cut it short. If I had any idea what they were talking about I would have told them to buzz off, Graney said. I got myself bush-whacked by Williams. This thing was a comedy routine. It was Keystone Kops. This is silliness. Graney said he would like to know if Williams was authorized by the State Attorney to record their conversation. If not, he said, he believes it is illegal for an individual to record any conversation without the other persons knowledge. He said he had no clue Williams, a friend for more than a decade, was recording the campaign discussion. Witness calls state attorney investigation silliness This thing was a comedy routine. It was Keystone Kops. This is silliness. Tom Graney Witness

In the subdivision, a street named Windward Court leads to a dead end. Sitting on the left-side of the cul-de-sac is a yard of caldrons, fog, skeletons and grimacing jack-o-lanterns. A passerby could hear the witchs laugh and an old wooden door slowly creak. For the past 7-years on the beach, Peter and Sharon Golden have spent Oct. 31 in costume. Ive been doing this for the children for years, Peter Golden said. I love to scare the kids. The couple invests in frightening neighborhood children by making their yard a spook-haven and dressing as mummies, witches and zombies. One year we had a cardboard casket; he dressed up like a mummy in a cof n and waited for the children to come by, Sharon Golden said about her husband. She added that she was sitting on the porch in a chair welcoming children to give them candy when Peter Golden popped out of the cardboard casket and scared the kids beyond belief. Golden said his xation with Halloween began when he was a young boy in the small town of Haledon, New Jersey. The local re department would throw a Halloween party for the children and all the kids sat down and watched a moviesometimes it would be a 1940s old terror lm. After joining the military, Golden said the family embraced the holiday because he normally spent Christmas time in service, away from home. In previous years the couple has been in costume as Mexican Bandit and American Indian Girl, Viking and Gothic Princess and Butter y and Werewolf. Golden described his werewolf year as a successful attempt to petrify the neighborhood kids. I came out the door on all fours and the whole porch cleared out, he added. Its a thrill for a child to experience that. The inside of their home is frightful as well. Upon an end table, guests can watch a battery operated giant amputated hand move about freely, no strings attached; a machete holding skeleton stands in the hallway, warning guests about attempting to pass by; and upon their dinner table sit life-like rats and skull head salt and pepper shakers; above it, a shingled black chandelier. Every year, the couple invites a few guests over to engage in the celebration of the holiday. Sharon Golden said she often prepares festive confectionaries like white chocolate skull and cross bones candy. Golden said the nicest feedback he ever received for his efforts was when a young lady, who had experienced the couples frightening performance as a child, visited him to introduce her daughter to them. The house is ready to be viewed and becomes active around 5:45 p.m.; lights go off about 9:30 p.m. Photos by ANDREW P JOHNSON | The News Herald Peter Golden, dressed as a zombie, Sharon Golden, dressed as a pirate, and their home in Panama City Beach.

It was a nondistrict game between two of the more successful Class 1A programs in recent years. Chipley improved to 5-4, with Freeport falling to 3-6. Freeport senior quarterback Owen Cole connected with junior Morgan Hardee in the end zone with 8:21 to play in the rst quarter and senior Nick Russells kick gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. It was short-lived as Chipley running back McCrary scored three rst-half touchdowns and the Tigers were in command. Less than 30 seconds after Freeports touchdown, McCrary answered with a 52-yard scoring run. Fletcher Dillmores kick tied the game. With 3:02 left in the rst quarter, the Tigers took the lead on McCrarys 17-yard run that capped a 55-yard, six-play drive. With 5:48 remaining in the half, Chipley again found the end zone with McCrary busting over the middle from 3 yards to make it 20-7. The Tigers rst-half response wasnt completed as with 2:07 left in the second quarter junior quarterback Jordan Finch connected with junior wide receiver Dallas Oliver in the end zone. Chipley led 26-7 at intermission. The Tigers scored on their rst possession of the second half when sophomore wide receiver Carlon Smiths TD capped a 46yard, four-play drive. Dillmores kick gave the Tigers a 33-7 lead. Freeport responded with an 80-yard, seven-play drive, helped by a Tiger personal foul. The march ended with senior wide receiver Zach Fordem nabbing Coles pass in the end zone. The Tigers nished the scoring as the third quarter expired when sophomore running back Wyatt Brock ran up the middle from 2 yards to cap a 57-yard, nine-play effort. Chipley heads to Bonifay next week to face Holmes County in a key District 3-1A game. McCrary sparks Chipley to non-district triumph PHOTO BY RANDAL SEYLER The Chipley Tigers manhandled the Freeport Bulldogs 39-13 Friday in non-conference play at Philip Rountree Stadium in Chipley. The Tigers travel to Bonifay this week to face the Blue Devils. Crestview overwhelms Mosley By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY If Friday night was a referendum on postseason motivation versus pride, motivation won out handily at Tommy Oliver Stadium. Crestview, still striving to become a factor in District 2-6A, downed Mosley 39-7 to remain relevant in the playoff discussion at 2-2, 4-5 overall. Mosley, already eliminated, slid to 0-4, 3-5. More to the point, the game showcased a team with a number of players who soon will be suiting up on Saturdays against an overmatched opponent. Micah Reed, a verbal commitment to UCF, rushed for 108 yards and the rst two touchdowns of the game to spark the Bulldogs. Junior defensive end Denzel Ware, who already has announced his intention to attend Florida State, sacked Mosley quarterback Zach Rhodes for a 16-yard loss early in the game. That negated a fumble recovery by Zach Warnick on a muffed punt by Crestview that set up the Dolphins on the Bulldogs 21. The series ended in a punt, and Mosley eventually trailed 17-0 at halftime. Reed scored on runs of 9 and 40 yards, the latter coming only 18 seconds before halftime and appearing to take the steam out of the Dolphins. Crestviews defense already had punished a depleted Mosley offense. Of 15 rst-half running plays by the Dolphins, only three resulted in positive yardage. Mosley momentarily clawed back into contention midway through the third quarter to trail 17-7. Louie Abbotts interception and 30-yard return set up the Dolphins on the Crestview 31, and they took 10 plays to reach the end zone. Rhodes engineered a pair of fourthdown conversions, nding wide receiver Nat Dixon for 6 yards and sneaking for 2 yards behind Caleb Houghton. Rhodes found Dixon on a fade route in the corner of the end zone from 8 yards with 5:37 left in the quarter and Christian Marshs extra point narrowed the gap to 10 points. Until the ensuing kickoff. Jaylynn Robinson bobbled Marshs pooch kick at his 20 and dribbled the ball momentarily around his feet. When he gained possession he easily broke contain down the visiting sideline and picked up a pair of vicious blocks to go 80 yards. It sparked a trio of long scoring plays as the Bulldogs turned a triumph into a rout. Robinson streaked 69 yards on a sweep to the right on Crestviews opening possession of the fourth quarter. Emmanuel Reed duplicated the yardage and the result with 5:19 remaining. Crestview enjoyed an advantage of beef and muscle on both side of the football and it showed on the stat sheet. The Bulldogs piled up 361 yards to 171 for the Dolphins. Mosleys back eld, already missing leading rusher Ryan Rogers and forced to juggle the roster, was further limited in the second half. In the space of two minutes, Rhodes was knocked from the game when Ware broke through for a clean hit during an incompletion, halfback Andrew Hardrick had to leave the game and Warnick, moved from defense to supplement the halfback position was sidelined. All but Warnick returned by the fourth quarter. However, Rhodes and Dixon supplied most of the offensive output by teaming on eight completions for 103 yards. Rhodes was 11-24 overall with one interception, and that on his nal pass of the game. Mosley completes its district schedule at rst-place Navarre next week. Crestview could stake a claim to a shootout berth or a playoff spot outright by winning its district nale against visiting Niceville. From Staff Reports BLOUNTSTOWN Javakiel Brigham led a balanced scoring attack with two rushing touchdowns and Hunter Jordan completed his two passes for scores to lead Blountstown to a 51-0 rout of Franklin County on Friday. Jordan tossed scoring strikes to Josh Taylor and Tripp Taylor to give the Tigers an early 21-0 lead. Brigham rushed for 45 yards and scored twice in the rst half to propel the Tigers to a 44-0 lead. Fabian Solomon added 41 yards and the games nal score in the fourth quarter. Alex Mayorga led Blountstown with 75 yards rushing and he added a secondquarter touchdown. Bobby Andrews also scored on the ground and the Tigers racked up 237 yards rushing. Blountstown dominated on defense, holding Franklin County to minus-63 total yards.

Proven leadership from the Battleeld to the Schoolhouse. By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner Bmilner@pcnh.com SAND HILLS You can forgive Bozeman for looking ahead to next week. Bucks coach Loren Tillman only hopes they saved a few points. Bozeman overcame an early hiccup to race ast visiting Wewahitchka 49-12 on Friday. It was Bozemans nal tuner for the District 3-1A nale at South Walton next week when the Bucks will try to wrap up their second playoff berth in school history. We wanted to come out, play enough to be sharp and not get anyone hurt, said Tillman, whose parents are Wewa natives. Thats what we had to do to go into next Friday and give ourselves a chance to compete. Wewa (2-7), which lost for the fth time in six games, struck rst on the games opening possession. Rashard Rainie carried 66 yards on the games rst play and Jalyn Addison scored from 3 to give the upset-minded Gators a 6-0 lead. Thoughts of pulling off a shocker faded quickly, as James Jernigan raced 20 yards for a tying score four plays later. Jernigan added touchdown receptions of 34 and 16 yards from Jacob Martinez and Jovani Bell scored twice to stake the Bucks to a 42-6 halftime lead. Martinez also rushed for a rsthalf score to help Bozeman (6-2) score 42 unanswered points. The running clock in the second half put a merciful end to the night for the overmatched Gators. Wewa has a lot of youth and they just need to keep playing, Tillman said. I see a bright future for them. Rainie led Wewa with 109 yards rushing on 18 carries. Addison added a second score at the end of the third quarter. The Gators were held to 199 yards for the game after amassing 77 on their rst drive. Bell exploded for a game-high 138 yards on the ground on only ve totes. Martinez added 66 yards rushing and was 4 of 5 for 93 through the air. Jernigan chipped in 83 total yards. Bozeman can assure itself no worse than a tiebreaker with a win over South Walton. The Bucks will clinch second place and a regional spot with a win and a Holmes County victory over Chipley. Wewa is idle next week.

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Halloween is today, and many pet owners have already purchased their animals costume. Although these outts can be fun and festive, the wrong outt can be harmful to your animal. Although costumes are a fun way to interact with your pet, Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor and director of general surgery services at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, stressed the importance of monitoring your pet in the clothing. Cute little costumes are fun to put on your animals while trick-or-treating, but when you are not watching your animals, make sure to take them off, Stickney said. He also explained that this also goes for sweaters, jackets or any other pet clothing. While it may seem like pets need clothes to stay warm, they can do more harm than good if the animal is not monitored. More than likely your animal does not need to keep clothing on to stay warm, even in the winter, Stickney said. If you have a house pet that only goes outside for 15-20 minutes to go to the bathroom, they will be more than ne without the clothing. Another thing Stickney recommended avoiding in pet costumes are dangly pieces of fabric, bells, or other small objects that the animal can chew off and swallow. These things can cause the pet to choke and possibly cause blockages in their intestinal track. Ribbons and bows are especially dangerous for cats, Stickney added. These are things cats love to play with and chew on, but if they swallow them it causes what is called a linear foreign body. This requires emergency surgery to remove or it can saw a hole in the intestines. Stickney also warned of a pet being allergic to the clothing material or the laundry detergent used to wash the costume. If an animal is allergic to a costume or clothing, Stickney said it might develop an itchy, red rash. The best thing to do is to take the outt off of the pet and retire it, Stickney said. There is no reason to cause your pet pain and discomfort. Finally, Stickney stressed that it is important to make sure the outts t correctly. Anything that can wrap around the pets neck, paws, or legs can cause them to panic or injure themselves. This is especially common in small or young dogs as many costumes may not t them correctly because of their size, Stickney said. The best way to select pet costumes or clothing is to buy them at a pet store where you can take your pet with you and try the outt on them. That way you will know for sure that it not only ts correctly but that it also looks as adorable as you hoped.

Suggestions for future topics may be directed to editor@cvm.tamu.edu Special to Extra FORT WALTON BEACH To facilitate ongoing dialogue and further develop re lationships with military partners, Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll met with the newly restructured Air Force Materiel Command, Com mander Brig. Gen. Arnold Bunch, Jr. and the 96th Test Wing Commander at Eglin Air Force Base, Brigadier General David Harris to get a status update on the recent consolidation com pletion required by BRAC 2005 of the Air Force Mate riel Command. Bunch reassured Carroll that he was committed to getting the desired mission at Eglin to increase efcien cy and effectiveness to stand up the mission and support all personnel. He also stated that, no jobs or pay were lost at Eglin due to the consolida tion. The consolidation will realize $109 million/year cost avoidance to the Air Force. Carroll raised concerns about the looming national security threat of cyber ter rorism and asked General Bunchs help to grow more mission opportunities for the 96th Test Wing to be the leader in the Air Force for research and development of counter cyber security measures. Carroll said, there is a great opportunity for Flor ida to utilize the talent and extraordinary asset at the Wing to consolidate a cross section of departments and agencies to enhance and conduct proper systems test and development to combat the next greatest threat to our nation. Bunch was pleased with his visit to Florida and ap plauded Carrolls efforts to advance the Gulf Regional Airspace Strategic Initiative.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Some traditional Mohawks are treating the naming of the nations rst Native American saint with skepticism and fear that the Roman Catholic Church is using it to shore up its image and marginalize traditional spiritual practices. They see the story of Kateri Tekakwitha as yet another reminder of colonial atrocities and religious oppression. I was a recipient of these historical profanities and want to ensure this does not happen again, said Doug George-Kanentiio, a Mohawk writer who left Catholicism to follow traditional longhouse spiritual practices. The daughter of a Mohawk chief and a Catholic Algonquin woman, Kateri was born in 1656 about 40 miles northwest of Albany and in the heart of the Iroquois Confederacy to which the Mohawks belong. She was orphaned at age 4 when smallpox wiped out her family and much of her village and left her blinded and dis gured. A Catholic convert at 20, she settled in Kahnawake, a Mohawk settlement south of Montreal where Jesuits had a mission and where she and other women performed morti cation rituals such as selfogging as part of their faith. At her death at age 24, Kateris smallpox scars reportedly vanished, and later she was reported to appear before several people. She is buried at a shrine on Kahnawake. Speaking in English and French at her canonization last Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI noted how unusual it was in Kateris culture for her to choose to devote herself to her Catholic faith. Shes seen very much as a bridge between native culture and Christianity, said the Rev. Jim Martin, a Jesuit priest. He said the Jesuit missionaries took great pains to learn the native languages and tried their best to present the Christian faith using words, phrases and ideas from the native cultures. Traditional Mohawks recognize the reverence their Catholic relatives and friends have for Kateri, said Chaz Kader, a Mohawk journalist who was raised Catholic but follows ancient longhouse traditions now. But many remain troubled by how the church portrays her life. The story of Kateri told in various church writings describes her as maintaining her faith despite torment by her people, suffering ostracism and persecution at the hands of her own tribe and eventually eeing to Canada. I disagree with the characterizations of the other Mohawks in the Jesuit accounts of Kateri, Kader said. The contrast of good Mohawks and bad Mohawks still is affecting our people. Traditional Mohawks have struggled to keep their spiritual traditions and ancient language alive despite pressure from non-Indians to adopt European religion, culture and language. These traditionalists have established Mohawk language-immersion schools and follow a clanbased government separate from the elected tribal government recognized by the U.S., Canada and New York state. To outsiders, they are associated with an image of bad Mohawks who smuggle goods across the border and refuse to collect state taxes on cigarette sales, Kader said, and the good Mohawks are the ones who went to Rome to celebrate Kateri, he said. Its dif cult to gauge just how widespread the feelings are given the factionalism that pervades the nation and the circumspection they favor when dealing with the media. But many Mohawks interviewed downplayed any controversy and joined Catholics who see Kateri as a uniting gure and hope her elevation to sainthood will help heal old wounds. Its so nice to see God showing all the avors of the world, said Gene Caldwell, a Native American member of the Menominee reservation in Neopit, Wis., who attended Kateris canonization with his wife, Linda. The Native Americans are enthralled to have Kateri attain sainthood, he said. Russell Roundpoint, director of the Mohawk history and cultural center at Akwesasne, said her sainthood is not a contentious issue by any stretch of the imagination. The Mohawk people are very proud of the fact that she has attained such a high level, he said. Sister Jennifer Votraw is director of communications for the diocese where the Mohawk reservation is located. Though the diocese doesnt provide direct pastoral care to the Mohawks, Votraw belongs to the order the Sisters of St. Joseph, nuns who regularly aid the priests who minister to the tribe. She said years of interactions between the church and the tribe demonstrate a mutual respect. Still, she knows there are traditional Mohawks who will never be swayed in their view of the church and might resent Kateris canonization as a ploy to improve the churchs image among Native Americans. They believe very rmly in their religion, which is Mohawk, she said. You just have to respect that. Orenda Boucher, a Mohawk humanities professor at Kiana Institution, a Native American college near Montreal, said there are mixed feelings and no easy answer to the question of what Kateri represents to Mohawks or the world. A lot of my friends who are traditionalists see Kateri as tied into the story of colonization that has deeply affected Kahnawake, and to the atrocities of the church, she said. Boucher said to understand the complexities of Kateris life, its important for people to look beyond the biographies written by clergymen who focus on what they consider her Christian virtues. George-Kanentiio said traditional Iroquois worry that Kateris sainthood could be used as way to encourage Native Americans to eschew their ancestral values for Catholic dogma. It should never obscure the best elements of our aboriginal spirituality, nor should Kateris personal behaviors, given their extremities, be endorsed as a model for women anywhere, he said, referring to her self-mutilation with whips, thorns and hot coals. Women in particular need not kneel in supplication to any man or any god but to rise to dance and sing in true joy, he said. We can never accept any institution which actively suppresses women or quali es their potential. But when the holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be lled with power, and you will be my witnesses...

On Growing UP What does it mean to grow up and become an adult? This is certainly not an easy question to answer, although we usually know it when adulthood is lacking and someone is acting childishly. There is a lot of growing up required of us nowadays and thus adulthood is being delayed by an extended period of adolescence. This leaves us with lots of twentyand thirty-year-old individuals who are living at home and taking on very few if any of the responsibilities to be responsible for ones actions and ones life and to stop expecting other people to take care of you. It also entails taking responsibility for where one is in life and refus ing to blame our parents, teachers, or others for our lack of success. At some point, we all have to grow up and realize that our life is OURS and no one elses, and however much others may have contributed to it, only we can shape our own lives. Whether this is always true is debatable; parents and teachers do have an impact on children and the adults they will become. But, it is best for each of us to take responsibility for our own lives and start acting and believing as if we are the masters of our own fates. Perhaps that is what it really means to be grown up: to strive to mold and fashion our own lives and to live by our own standards and ideals. And, to do it with the faith of one who takes complete responsibility for every aspect of his or her existence.

B8| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, October 31, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By CAROLINE M.L. POTTERMonster Contributing Writer As soon as the calendar turns over to September, retailers will know how much help they will need to handle the holidays. The National Retail Federation predicts retailers will add 585,000 to 625,000 seasonal workers in 2012, which is comparable to the 607,500 seasonal employees hired last year. Recent consumer confidence readings have been relatively weak and unemployment remains stubbornly high,Ž John Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, said in a statement. The mixed picture is likely to compel retail employers to proceed cautiously when it comes to hiring extra workers for the holiday season. Look for many to start at last years levels and hire additional workers only if strong sales early in the season warrant it.Ž If you want to get a distinct advantage over other would-be seasonal workers, plan your job search carefully using these tips.Know where to lookThe best opportunities for seasonal job seekers will be at the large discounters, like Target and Wal-Mart, which will be heavily favored by cost-conscious consumers this holiday season,Ž Challenger said. But be prepared to look past retail sales jobs for other opportunities. The big-box stores need extra workers on the floor, but they also need extra workers in their shipping facilities and overnight stocking positions,Ž he said. Opportunities also exist outside of retail, in areas like catering and with shipping companies such as UPS and FedEx.ŽStart earlyEmployers already know how many people they will need, so start searching today. Even if a job does not begin for another month, its best to lock in an opportunity sooner rather than later.Dress the partWhen youre looking for any kind of job, show up dressed in business-casual attire, at the very least. Even if the seasonal work for which youre applying is outdoors (think Christmas trees), wear neat slacks, polished shoes and a collared shirt.Be prepared If you are stopping into an establishment to shop for seasonal work, be prepared to fill out an application and participate in an impromptu interview. Bring your own pen, necessary documentation to prove you can work in the U.S. legally, a resume if you have one and all contact information for your professional references. Be sure you block off enough time to meet with a few supervisors should the opportunity arise.Know what you wantIf you are applying for seasonal work, know precisely what you offer to a potential employee „ and what you want in return. Determine what hourly rate is acceptable to you, what hours and days you are available, if you have the wherewithal for a particular position (some might involve lifting heavy boxes or standing for the greater part of your shift), and if the location is viable in terms of fuel costs and transportation options. (Will you always have access to a reliable car or a convenient bus line?) You do not want to make a commitment only to leave an employer in the lurch during the hectic holidays.Be flexibleThe best way to make sure you stand out from other seasonal talent is to present yourself as flexible „ but only if you really are. A hiring manager revealed that demanding a specific schedule from prospective employers is a sure way to jettison your chances at landing a job. Instead, advised Challenger, Temporary workers must be prepared to be flexible, whether it is hours or type of work. Either can vary as the holiday season progresses.ŽBoost your chance of landing a seasonal job Transfer Drivers: Need 20 Contract Drivers, CDL A or B to relocate vehicles to and from various locations throughout US—No forced dispatch: (800)501-3783 www.mamotransportation.com A Few Pro Drivers Needed Top Pay & 401K.
