The board approved Commissioner Bill Parishs recommendation of Raymond Thomas and Commissioner David Whitakers recommendation of Chuck Dockery. Board Chairman Monty Merchant said there was only one more resignation that needs attending to, which is that of Lenora Campbell. Its time to take a serious look at the development commission and get the ball rolling, said Merchant. There still isnt a director yet but theres a growing concern about the development commission. Ive had questions to me about the development commission having a lot of money and wondering what they are doing for the county. Parish said one problem with the development commission is low attendance, apathy and lack of participation. We need to take a stronger look at how we choose those members, Bill seeks to loosen liquor laws By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com BONIFAY Liquor laws could get looser in several rural Panhandle counties. The Florida Legislature passed a bill last week (HB 347) that could help all restaurants sell liquor, wine and beer in counties where that is not currently allowed, including Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington counties. The bill would affect sales of by the drink alcohol, which are beverages consumed where theyre purchased, such as restaurants and bars. But, even if the bill is signed by the governor, which appears likely it cleared the House 111-4 and the Senate 36-0 it doesnt automatically legalize by the drink sales throughout the counties. The measure would fall back into the hands of local voters, who would have an easier time getting it on the ballot. Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington currently do not sell liquor by the drink. State Rep. Marti Coley, a Marianna Republican, said twice in recent years there has been an effort to get the issue on the ballot, but it failed. The Legislatures response was to water down the process. Under current state law, to get an initial election on the sale of alcohol in a county, an application must be presented to the county commission with 25 percent of registered voters signatures. If that initial election allows alcohol to be sold only in package stores, then the county residents must again round up 25 percent of voters By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY The city of Blountstown, located in Northeast Calhoun County, operates on a $3 million per year budget and is struggling to keep up with infrastructure needs. Its no cheaper to x things here than it is in a big city, said City Manager Emory Pierce. But in big cities with multi-million dollar budgets, a couple of thousand dollars to x something is nothing. The story is similar for rural communities across the Panhandle region, and U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, is hoping a new bill might help those areas he said form the backbone of North and Northwest Florida. Southerland recently introduced the Building Rural Communities Act, a bill aimed at giving rural government of cials the necessary tools to plan largescale improvement projects in a more cost-effective manner. Co-sponsored by Rep. Mike McIntyre, DN.C., the legislation would channel between 3 and 5 percent of funding from the U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) Rural Development Essential Communities Facilities loan and grant program toward technical assistance and nancial planning for rural communities. Unfortunately, across America many of these bedrock communities are fading away because they cant match the access to infrastructure and services that larger cities provide, Southerland said. Our legislation will make it easier for rural communities to thrive by providing the technical assistance and project planning they need to strengthen public safety, public health, and public access to upgraded services all at no additional cost to taxpayers. Pierce said funding issues have halted a project to run a force main sewer line from Altha, a small town to the northwest, to the Blountstown New HCDC members appointed by BOCC Bill aims to help rural communities Photo by RANDAL SEYLER | The News Members of the Knights of Columbus Council 10513 Infant of Prague made a donation of $5,000 to ARC of Washington-Holmes Counties on Monday in Chipley.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 1, 2013 signatures to put it back on the ballot for by the drink sales in restaurants. Thats the issue in Jackson County. The recently passed bill would require only one-tenth of voters signatures, or a majority vote by the county commission. That would put the issue on the ballot to legalize by the drink sales of beer, wine and li quor containing more than 6.243 percent alcohol by volume. Present situation Jackson County Commis sioner Willie Spires said about ve of the 11 municipalities al low restaurants to serve beer. He said some businesses just outside the city limits feel its unfair because their competi tion can serve alcohol while they cant. People are optimistic that now they can get it on the ballot and get it passed, he said. Spires can be counted among those who wouldnt mind seeing alcohol served in restaurants throughout the county. I see it as a good thing, he said. I think living in a small rural area such as Jackson County that we miss out on a lot of tax [revenue] that could be generated; a lot of people in our area go to Panama City or Do than (Ala.) or Tallahassee. Spires said allowing alco hol to be served in restaurants countywide could translate into economic development, usher ing more restaurants like Red Lobster or Applebees. Spires said he thought Jack son County residents would like to see the law changed, too. The county has 28,773 registered voters and would need 2,878 sig natures to get the measure on the ballot. Calhoun County has 8,276 registered voters and would need 827 signatures to get the measure on the ballot. Holmes County has 11,375 registered voters and would need 1,138 signatures. Liberty County has 4,403 reg istered voters and would need 441 signatures. Washington County has 14,665 voters so would need 1,467 signatures. Or the county commissions, through a majority vote, could put the measure in the voters hands. Legislative process Coley said she wasnt neces sarily opposed to the policy, but she voted against it because it was tacked onto the bill late in the process as an amendment. The substance of the amendment was never heard in committee and only affects three counties, she said in a statement. Since it was added on the House oor, there was not time to contact the commu nities that will be impacted. Coley said the legislation should have been a standalone bill, so it would have had adequate time to be debated and those impacted could offer input. She concluded, However, in the end, the citizens still have the nal decision. Coley was able to round up two of her Panhandle colleagues state Reps. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello, and Jimmy Patro nis, R-Panama City to vote against the bill, which passed by a landslide. State Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone Heights, also voted against it. Patronis took the same view as Coley. Hey, I like live and let live, and I think all thats ne, he said of liquor laws, but theres a process in place and those people in Jackson County, if they wanted it, they would have asked their legislator to le a bill and go through the normal vet ting process. Patronis is co-owner of Capt. Andersons, which serves beer, wine and mixed drinks. His problem with the amendment was that it was led on the House oor 24 hours before it was voted on. Rep. Ronald Doc Renu art, R-Ponte Vedra Beach, who sponsored the bill, also led the amendment. A lot of people didnt know about it, Patronis said.

Young, intelli gent and willing to work. County Attorney Jeff Goodman recommended that the commis sioners hold a workshop with the development council after the last new member is appointed and had time to settle in and discuss roles, responsibilities and goals. Its important that the board en courages things to get moving, said Merchant. Get them on helping our businesses and to bring new busi nesses in. The board approved of Mer chants request to start their mos quito spraying immediately. Weve already started getting complaints about mosquitoes, said Merchant. I know we said wed start around May 1 to mid May, but cant we start immediately? Well retain the same six-month period, were just starting early. The commissioners also ap proved signing Proclamation Viva Florida 500, recognizing the 500th an niversary of Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leons landing on Floridas coast in April 1513. The board also agreed to ght the new legislative Medicare county cost, which would push their payments from $280 a year to $1,700, which is a 62 percent increase. Please contact your senator and share with them your feelings, said Merchant. BOCC from page A1 wastewater treatment plant. Cur rently, all of Althas buildings run off of septic tanks. Without real community sewer lines, they are severely limited in Altha and along that entire corridor toward Blountstown, Pierce said. He said the Calhoun County School District is exploring options for a new high school in Altha, but the current infrastructure cannot support a structure that size. Overall, Pierce said he would support any bill that could help ru ral areas like Blountstown. We have the normal aging in frastructure that all cities big and small have, and we are searching for funding to help with our inter nally generated funds, said Pierce, who noted the city cannot raise utili ty rates for fear of losing customers. All people and businesses here are strapped. If we raise rates, I would estimate we would lose several customers and the community just cant stand that. Southerlands bill was referred to the U.S. House Committee on Ag riculture for further consideration.

Skyla Carter of Chipley told the com missioners she had concerns about county interviewing policies that were raised when she requested e-mails of county ofcials through the Florida Sunshine Law. In the e-mails, Commissioner Lynn Gothard asked Heather Finch, for mer human resources director for the county, to send her a copy of the public safety director job description, but to send it to a different e-mail account. Currently the county does not have a public safety director, since the retire ment of Roger Hagan in December. I was concerned about the e-mail being sent to a different address, Cart er said. I had made a request for all e-mails about the public safety director position, and I was wondering if there were any e-mails I didnt receive. Gothard said she knew what Carter was talking about. I sent Heather an e-mail asking her to send a copy of the job descrip tion to me, Gothard said. Her husband, Washington County Fire Chief Al Gothard, has many pro fessional contacts and he would be able to spread the word that the county was looking for a public safety director. He knows several qualied professionals and he could pass on the information to them, Gothard said. The job description and adver tisement of the job opening had al ready been published, Gothard said. We were wanting to get as broad a selection of candidates as possible, there was nothing underhanded about the e-mail. Gothard said at the meeting on Thursday that she in no way got in volved in the hiring process during the search for a public safety director. However, according to a March 22 letter written by Emergency Manage ment employee Connie Welch to Lynne Abel, emergency management coordi nator, Gothard had plans to create a public safety director position and she had a person in mind to hire for that job. Soon after the election, Washing ton County Fire Chief Gothard was in my ofce and advised me of his and his wifes plan for a Public Safety Divi sion Director and he and his wife had the perfect person for the position in mind, Welch wrote. According to a letter to the board from Grant Coordinator Stacy Webb, dated March 27, Gothard had ap proached Carol Park and Webb on March 12 wanting to see the applica tions for the Public Safety Position. She was very demanding and came across as being forceful, Webb wrote. Carol and I looked at each other for a couple of seconds and after a brief hes itation, we reluctantly acknowledged her request and Carol escorted her into her ofce where the applications were kept in a safe and I proceeded to my ofce. According to the county attor ney, applications for county jobs are public records and, minus social se curity numbers and health-related information, they are open to public inspection. Also at Thursdays meeting, the commissioners voted to rescind an earlier vote and move the Emergency Medical Services department out from under the purview of the public safety director. At the Jan. 24 board meeting, it was Commissioner Gothard who made the motion to move the Emergency Medi cal Services back under the public safe ty directors control per the countys Proposed Progressive Governmental Structure chart, approved in 2008. After discussion, the commission ers voted at the January meeting to make the move, with Commissioner Joel Pate voting against the change. On the organizational chart, in 2008 the EMS is listed under the Public Safety director, but in 2009 the chart was revised and EMS was moved out to be a department on its own. The public safety directors job de scription for the directors position was to revert back to the old description and the job was to be re-advertised, per the commissioners decision, the board decided on Thursday.

Bare eld, Publisher Randal Seyler, Editor Cameron Everett, Production Supervisor United We Stand Dear Editor, Americans are united today in condemning terrorism and in the conviction that those responsible for the terrorist attacks in Boston must face justice. This cowardly attack resulted in the murders of an eight-year-old boy and two women, and the wounding of many others. As God tells us in the Quran, if you murder one person, it as if you murdered all of humanity. While we are outraged at the terrorists, we have been inspired by the unity of Americans of all backgrounds. We are a resilient people. Now that we know the identity of the perpetrators, this unity is ever more important. We will show the terrorists that their plan to sow division and distrust has failed. People of goodwill are not afraid. America will stay united. American Muslims thank law enforcement for their diligent efforts to protect all our nations citizens. We send our sincere condolences to the loved ones of the MIT police of cer killed overnight and our prayers are with the law enforcement of cial who was wounded. We reiterate the American Muslim communitys consistent condemnation of terrorism in all its forms. Sincerely, Dr. Mohammad Yunus Bonifay Everyone can make a difference Dear Editor, This years Earth Day served as an outstanding reminder that everyone can make an important difference for the environment through the simple act of donating gently used clothing or household items to Goodwill. Each year, donors help Goodwill prevent more than two billion pounds of usable goods from ending up in land lls. But the impact to the environment is only part of the story. Revenue raised from the sale of donated items at Goodwill stores funds job training programs, employment placement services and other vital programs in the community. People, as well as the planet, bene t. To show individuals how their donations truly impact their communities, Goodwill developed a Donation Impact Calculator (http://donate. goodwill.org). The calculator shows how your donation can help a person receiving services from Goodwill. For example, a donation of one working computer translates into 5.8 hours of a job search class that can help a person right in our community who may be unemployed and struggling to support his or her family. Goodwill encourages everyone to making one small green change in your life. Individual actions add up to global impact. Not only will you be helping those in your community who face challenges in nding employment, but you will also reduce waste in our land lls.

Brooke Lochore Vice President of Public Relations Letters to the EDITOR Being able to see the Doolittle Raiders at their last reunion caused me to research the World War II event that changed the course of the war with Japan and reminds us of the spirit that carried so many of our military men through that that historical time. In my article last week, I said the three surviving Raiders were at their nal reunion. According to an Associated Press release from Eglin Air Force Base, there is one additional surviving member of the original 80 men, Robert Hite, 93, who was unable to make the trip. Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, 91, Lt. Col Edward Saylor, 97, and Lt. Col. Richard Cole, 97, made several public appearances. I also want to correct a glaring error from last weeks article. John McCain was the prisoner of war incarcerated with Bud Day. Cole actually ew a B-25 that he ew in the 1942 raid over Japan during their appearance at Destin Airport. Larry Kelly, who grew up in Enterprise, Ala., and is the rst cousin of local resident Mrs. Jake Jacobs (Alice), owns the vintage plane. A member of the Raiders Foundation, Kelly took Cole up for a spin. The 97-year-old waved to the crowd on takeoff and then took the controls, ying the plane and landing it perfectly. Larry Kelly, who is a WWII and aviation enthusiast, owns an air museum in Georgetown, Del., ragwingsandradials.com. A retired pharmacist and pharmaceutical consultant, he participates in air shows and WWII historical events, often accompanying the Raiders. Because of several movies, many who are too young to remember the secret mission that boosted American morale four months after the day that will go down in infamy have an idea of the events that occurred. Sixteen B-25 planes were launched for the rst time from an aircraft carrier to carry out a surprise raid on the Japanese mainland. Most of the B25 crews came down in China, and 69 eventually made their way to safety with help from the Chinese. Staff Sgt. William J Dieter and Sgt. Donald E Fitzmaurice drowned when their B-25s crashed into the sea. Eight were captured by the Japanese: Lt. Donald Halmark, Lt. Robert J. Meder, Lt. Chase Nelson, Lt. William G. Farrow, Lt. Robert L. Hite, Lt. George Barr, and Cpls Harold A. Spatz and Jacvob DeShzer. Halmark, DeShazer and Spatz were executed by ring squad. Meder was left in solitary con nement where he died. The remaining four men eventually began to receive better treatment and were given a copy of the Bible and a few books that helped them to be able to survive until they were freed by American troops in 1945. Of those who survived, most went on to other bombing missions in both the Paci c and European theaters. All Raiders received the Flying Cross. Those killed or wounded received the Purple Heart. All received decoration from the Chinese government. Although Doolittle himself feared that he might be court marshaled because of the loss of the planes, he received the Presidential Medal of Honor. Even though the raid did insigni cant damage to mainland Japan, it gave our country a great morale boost after Pearl Harbor and Japans dominance there. It also caused the Japanese to focus on protecting their own Island nation and helped to bring American victory in the defense of Midway Islands. Though the Japanese suffered light casualties in the Tokyo raid, they extracted a heavy toll on the Chinese who aided the Americans. 250,000 were slaughtered as a result. Speaking about the crews attitude concerning the attack, Cole, Doolittles co-pilot said, We were pretty upbeat about what was going to happen. We just did what we had to do. This is typical of the veterans of that war. Most of them were young and had the attitude that we have a job to do, lets get it done. They kept their faith and their sense of humor. Lt. Col Saylor joked with young airmen in the audience concerning his reaction about the bombing, .it was too far to swim back home so we might as well go ahead with it. We need to continue to tell their story and celebrate their bravery as we keep their legacy alive. HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Doolittle Raiders: preserving the legacy The 1944 Vernon High School graduating class held its scheduled reunion at Baileys Surf and Turf Restaurant in Chipley on Saturday evening, April 20. We were celebrating 69 years since our graduation on Thursday, April 20, 1944. Our high school years were shrouded with the reality of war. History was made when principal, Mr. Mercer Cox, arranged for the largest radio he could locate in Vernon to be brought into the auditorium for the entire student body to hear an important announcement. It was on Monday, December 8, 1941, the day following the attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor. The whole assembly heard President Franklin D. Roosevelt, of cially declare war on Japan, and later Germany. The atmosphere of war affected the lives of every one, with Vernon being no exception. Dozens of young men in the school, who were approaching draft age, chose to enlist in the military service thus being able to choose their branch of service. Some select students remember being called on to perform a duty, possibility under the umbrella of Civil Air Patrol. Student observers positioned themselves in the old courthouse in Vernon for the purpose of looking for any aircraft ying in the area, and report all sightings. My brother, Jim, vividly recalls performing that service as does Frederick Kolmetz and Odell Ward. Jim reports: We were on the ground oor of the almost abandoned old courthouse in a small room with windows which allowed us to look for the ying activity. He continued: Our telephone was an extension from the old Parrish General Store, and one of the very few phones in the town. He remembers this as strictly a volunteer service, and never recalls any real signi cance coming from the efforts, such as spotting an enemy, or unauthorized airplane. Brothers, Carl and Oakley Hightower, members of the 44 class left school prior to graduation to join the military. Carl entered the Army Air Corps and Oakley joined the U. S. Army. A third classmate, Allee Whidden, chose the U. S. Marine Corps. Classmates, William T. McFatter, Jr. and Thomas H. Knight, spent their senior year of high school in a Military Academy, with Bill entering the Army and Thomas choosing the Navy. After graduations, 1944 Vernon High School Class found their way into the military to ful ll their patriotic duty. Veston Neswsom and Frederick Kolmetz chose the Navy. Archie L. Cook, Hurdis A. Brock and Perry E. Wells became soldiers in the Army Bill McFatter suffered combat wounds to the legs while serving in the European Theater of the war. Archie Cook was captured by the Germans and spent time as a POW. Our rst class reunion was in 1964 20 years after nishing school. Mr. Jack Perkins, a retired military Mess Sergeant, was the lunchroom manager at Vernon High School at the time. He agreed to open the school lunchroom, prepare the meal, serve us and provide all the clean up with the total cost assessed at $1.25 per person! I hope we gave him a generous tip. The second reunion in 1989, was held at the Chipley Motel Restaurant, then the top eatery in town. We also met there in the years, 1992, 1994 and 1997. The year 2000 was the mammoth one, held at the Northwest Florida Campground and Music Park. VHS Graduating classes from 1940-41 through 1950-51 were included. Music was provided by Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, as Doyle was born on April 20, 1944. Others performing were Sand Hills City Limits, headed by W. T. Miller and son, Jimmy Miller and Sheriff Buddy Smith, and his musical group from Blountstown. The 1944 class has met annually, and at a variety of places since 2000. In 2002, our meeting place was the Wells homestead, with food catered by Angie Morris and daughter Jill. Only three class members, Frances Shores Fussell, Fredrick Kolmetz and Perry E. Wells, attended this years event. Two of Hurdis Brocks son, Steve and Stan, along with wife, Kay, came. His two brothers, Drexel, along with son, Doug, and Bill, accompanied by wife, Betty, and their son, Gordon, added to the numbers. Frances Fussell, husband, Julius,, grandson, Clint, daughter Mary, and her husband, Terry Driggers, and their three year old grand daughter, Zoe attended. James Earl Guy and wife, Naomi, came again this year although his mother, Myrtle Haddock Guy, was unable to come. Nadine Kolmetz accompanied her husband, and Hester was with me, along with two of our sons, Gordon and Tim and wife, Debbie. Emma Lou Chesser Tew and Thomas H. Knight had to cancel when medical issues thwarted their plans just days before the event. Indirectly, word was received that Estelle Hewett Scott, Bessie Lee Milton Davenport and Carl Hightower would be unable to attend. Louvern Chestnut Mizell called from Virginia, reported her inability to attend. Bill McFatter wrote a letter, stating he could not be with us and expressed doubt that his sister, and our classmate, Carol McFatter Hudson, would be able to come. Myrtle Morris Wolfe wrote a note stating she could not attend this year. Trudell Brock Worthington held high hopes of being at the event, but obviously did not feel up to the task. The group comprising the Vernon High School class of 1944 recognizes that we may have set a record of keeping in touch following graduation 69 years ago. We also recognize the time has come when attendance is becoming dif cult for some, and impossible for others. We will probably look closely at all circumstances prior to planning further reunions. See you all next week. VHS Class of 1944 celebrates graduation shrouded in war Wednesday, May 1, 2013 PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells

Our goal is to provide for the founders of Washington County, to meet their needs and to keep them in their homes for as long as possible. Smith said the Council on Aging has suffered a 15 per cent budget decrease in the last two years, and because of budget constraints, the Meals on Wheels program is limited and there is a wait ing list of seniors requesting hot meals. Well do anything we can to help promote the golf tournament, said Smith. Just let us know and well do what we can to help. This golf tournament is so important because there is a real need for these ser vices, said Nicole Bareeld, publisher of the Washington County News and the Holm es County Times-Advertiser said. We see it every day. For every dollar you do nate, the Council on Aging gets $9 in matching funds. I dont know anywhere else you can get a 9-to-1 return on your money, said Ron Sharpe, director of resource development for United Way of Northwest Florida. The money raised by the local golf tournament stays in Northwest Florida and helps our United Way agencies and our neighbors, Sharpe said. You know how important it is what you guys are doing, I hope you can hear the sin cerity when we say thank you, Sharpe told the Tra wick employees.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Ive plowed this ground before, but Im going to dig in and plow it again which is the temperature of the Gulf along the beaches, or better yet where the readings originate. What the temperature is 10 miles offshore is of no concern to pompano and ling shermen. No one can tell me with any accuracy just where these Gulf temperatures are coming from. It is possible to pull up a buoy offshore on your computer and get a reading, or you can listen to the news and get another, but to get one that is important to shermen a mile offshore is impossible to verify. The only way I can come up with a temperature that is close to accurate is to ask a sherman with a temperature gauge on his boat. The last time I tracked down where the Gulf temperature was being recorded here turned out to be at the city marina. The water temperature at the city marina is 5 degrees warmer than the Gulf. People do not sh for pompano or ling at the city marina. Last week one station was reporting 70 degrees in the Gulf and who knows where that came from. A friend shing the same day told me his bottom machine was reporting 65 degrees in 20 feet of water. That was more realistic than a reading from who knows where of 70 degrees. Sixtyve degrees is a long way from 70. The boats in Destin were reporting temperatures in the 70s and they were catching ling. That was not the case here. Eight or 10, or event 10-20 ling being caught here in a week is not a lot of ling when some years back we were catching that many a day. For some reason we just arent getting the warm water we have in the past. The Mexico Beach Ling Ding tournament up until this weekend had three ling brought to the dock. Organizers want this tournament to rival the event it was 15 years ago, but nature has dealt them a bad hand. Who knows, a thermal of warm water may swing their way. I hope so. Pompano are showing up little by little. Cussing Cousin, my eyes and ears shing from one of our piers, tells me he is seeing some schools of pompano passing by the pier where he is shing heading west to points unknown. But not enough to write home about. Some shermen are catching pompano from their boats, some tipping jigs with sand eas and some not. I have bombed out in two days shing, but in my defense the wind was blowing a hurricane both days. I suppose talking temperatures this late in the game is a moot conversation. In about three weeks the majority of the ling will have passed on west, so it wont make much difference. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net SHARK CHALLENGE By FRANK SARGEANT franksargeant@charter.net White sharks are rare creatures pretty much anywhere in the worlds oceans these days, but theyre particularly unusual in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. About the only white shark seen in the Panhandle is a plastic replica hanging upside down outside a restaurant. In fact, Captain Sam Maisano and his son, Captain Joe Maisano, who run Go Fast Charters out of Treasure Island near St. Petersburg, never had seen one in a lifetime of shing these waters up to 125 miles offshore or roughly due south of Apalach. Until March 15. Then they saw and hooked a shark that went way beyond any of their wildest imaginings. We were shing some wrecks in about 90 feet of water 30 miles west of Johns Pass, Maisano said. We were on a good bite, pulling up a lot of big gag grouper, some amberjacks, and we had caught and released several Goliath groupers over 300 pounds, so there was a lot of underwater noise going on, and Id guess thats what attracted the shark. Maisano said he saw a n come up about 100 yards back of the boat and could tell immediately it was a large shark. But he had no idea how large until it came cruising by the boat a few minutes later. That shark was every bit of 18 feet long, Maisano said. I could tell because it was over half as long as our 32-foot Donzi. He said that not only the incredible length but the girth of the monster shocked him. It was just enormous, maybe 4 feet across the head, Maisano said. I could tell from the body shape, almost stubby like at the tail, that it had to be a great white, and after we saw it a few more times I was certain. He guessed the weight of the beast at between 2,500 and 3,000 pounds. Not to be daunted, the Maisanos and their charter for the day, Fab Marchese of Ancaster, Ontario, decided to take on the giant. I lleted a ve pound slab of bonito, which is a very bloody sh, and rigged it up on one of the Goliath grouper rods, which are set up to handle really big sh, Maisano said. The line was 150-pound-test Power Pro braid, leading to a length of 200 pound test mono and then to a strand of heavy wire bite leader. The hook was an 18/0. The bait was oated out under a balloon. It didnt take right away, Maisano said. It swam around downtide for about 15 minutes, and then it nally smelled it and we were hooked up. Fortunately, the 45-year-old Marchese was in good shape because of his occupation, running a construction company in Ontario. He would need to be; for the next four hours and 30 minutes, he sat in the ghting chair at the bow of the Donzi while the Maisanos followed the giant sh. It would go down to bottom for 30 minutes, and I couldnt move it up, and then it would come up for a few minutes, sometimes come by the boat, and then down for another 30 minutes, Marchese said. It swam along down at about 70 feet when it was down Joe told me he could see it on the sonar. They followed the shark over 4 miles from where they had hooked it, sometimes gaining line, sometimes losing. It never displayed any aggression toward them, Maisano said. Ive had bull sharks come up and really attack the outdrives when theyre hooked, but this shark never did I dont think it ever really got to the point where it was panicking or mad I think we were probably a good eight or 10 hours from beating it, if we ever could have. In any case, after a quick con rmation that great whites are a protected species that cant be boated or possessed, the anglers decided to bring the sh close enough for a leader touchthe universal coup in catch and release shing and then to cut it free. They brought the shark close for a few last photos, then snipped the wire and the giant swam off into the depths, leaving Fab Marchese with a shing tale to end all shing tales when he gets back home. Fab and the Maisanos have been elding media interviews ever since they posted a YouTube video of their epic battle. When I spoke to them Tuesday, they were waiting on the docks for a crew from Good Morning America to arrive for taping. To see the video and learn more about the Maisanos, visit their website www.gofast shing. com (Theres a good bit of adult language on the video when the shark rst comes up at boatside, as you might expectanybody who can look a shark of that size in the eye at close range and not utter an expletive is much man indeed.) Are there great whites off the Panhandle? Scientists say there could be. The species prefers water temperatures in the 60s, which are common in Panhandle waters from December through March. And the large pelagic species like yellow ns, blue ns and sword sh are common in offshore waters here all are on the menu for great whites. Where mammal prey is abundant, whites seem to prefer the high energy esh; seals, whales and porpoises are all part of their diet. Researchers say that white sharks historically might have prowled the Gulf in search of the Caribbean monk seal, which was common here until it went extinct in the 1940s. However, as far as white sharks ever threatening Panhandle beaches, the odds are slim. Swimmers dont show up on area beaches until water temperatures are already too warm for comfort of carcharodon carcharias, and the gentle shelf in most areas is not conducive to long visits from this speciesthough as was made notorious through the lm Jaws, they do sometimes prowl near shore in New England waters. Whites elsewhere in Florida The East Coast gets more frequent visits from this giant predator. According to Neil Hammerschlag, an assistant professor at the University of Miamis Marine Science department who has studied great whites for over a decade, he gets a call almost every year about a sherman or boater seeing one. In 2011, commercial spear shermen off Deer eld Beach had one take an amberjack off one of their spears as they oated the sh to the surface. They were also commercial sharkers who knew shark species well, and saw the shark come by their boat after the remains of the AJ at a distance of only a few feet they identi ed it as a white 14 to 15 feet long not the look-alike mako. George Burgess, director of shark research at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, checked the bites on the remains of the AJ and judged them to likely have come from a white the mako has teeth more designed for puncturing than shearing. Great whites, which Burgess said may be following and feeding on whales and their calves during winter migrations into Florida, do occasionally get caught here. Notable catches include a 16-footer estimated at more than 1,000 pounds, caught off Key Largo in 1997 and a 2,300-pounder caught off Key West in 1956. A white shark estimated at 2,000 pounds was caught, tagged and released by a conservation research group off Jacksonville early this month. White shark life history Like many sharks, whites are born alive rather than hatching from eggs dropped by the mother, and reportedly one embryo often eats the others while still inside the womb, de nitely not helping this endangered species in the survival department. They take about 15 years to reach sexual maturity; they remain juveniles until theyre 12 to 14 feet long. Lifespan is thought to be about 30 years, maximum size up to 7,000 pounds and over 20 feet long. They have been protected by international treaty from harvest since 2004 under the CITES agreement which prohibits trade in endangered species. Biologists say white sharks do not hunt humans, but they take pretty much any large prey that presents itself, so swimming where theyre fairly common as along some parts of the California coast as well as southern Australia beaches can be somewhat risky. Here on the sugar sand of the Panhandle, not so much. Bull sharks are of course another matter, for another story. Great whites rare but a few show up here every winter Page 6 Wednesday, May 1, 2013

That might be the only thing approaching logic that ensues. The Atomics, who are endeared to this corner by their nickname alone, bounced Milton Central 11-1 last week for the District 1-1A championship. It was the rst district title won by the school, which has an address in Graceville but is located across the Jackson County line, since the 1983 girls basketball team. That aint exactly the Curse of the Bambino, but clearly the nuclear age has seemed to bypass this sparsely populated northeast section of Holmes County within a ground-rule double of the Alabama border. Perhaps the biggest upset of all is that Graceville, with 2,402 residents according to a recent population survey, has two public high schools located 5 miles apart using it as a mailing address. Or that a school such as Poplar Springs that offers only four sports at the varsity level boys and girls basketball, softball and baseball and boasts 85 students in grades 912 still is alive in the regional playoffs. But that doesnt de ne this group of athletes coached by Brad Hall, who have been building toward this moment last nights region semi nal game against visiting Chipley during the past three seasons. (Note: the game was played after press time Tuesday visit chipleypaper.com or bonifaynow.com to see the results). Poplar Springs was 9-1 in the district three years ago, Hall said, but lost in extra innings to Laurel Hill in the tournament semi nals. Last year was 8-2, and again the Atomics were denied by Laurel Hill, this time 1-0 in the championship game. They have compiled a 19-2 record thus far, one of the losses by one run to Chipley, behind freshmen pitchers Ashlyn Golden and Paige Smith. There only is one senior on the roster, so clearly this program appears poised to add a new page to the schools athletic history book, which at this point is more of a pamphlet. Poplar Springs won back-to-back state Class C titles in boys basketball under Herman Dodson in 1966 and 1967. Forgive the current enrollment of the school, totaling 330 students grades K-12, for not having that pedigree engrained into memory. Suf ce to say that for a group of teenagers 30 years between district titles is a very long dearth of success, twice a lifetime for some of these players. Junior catcher Savannah Ryken clearly is one of the team leaders, as is sophomore second baseman Joley Dixon. The difference between these athletes and those in higher classi cations is that many of Halls players have been on the varsity since their seventh-, eighthand ninth-grade years. Not surprisingly, what theyve already accomplished has created quite a buzz in the community. Hall said that the paid gate for the district championship was 212 spectators, and speculated that might double on Tuesday with Chipley located about 18 miles away. Bay County would have a dif cult time matching that. But then again, nothing about this Poplar Springs team is easily replicated. Hall said that some members of the community are getting a banner made to commemorate what has thus far been achieved. It is a tting tribute. And quite possibly, the start of something altogether even more lasting. By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com To the victor goes the spoils. And talent helps, too. The Gulf Coast softball team secured its rst Panhandle Conference softball title since 2006 this season and the success was noted on the leagues year-end teams released this week. Ollivia McLemore earned the conferences best pitcher honor, Emily Sanders is the player of the year and Susan Painter was named the top coach. Five Lady Commodores earned rst-team nods and four were on the second team. No GC player was named honorable mention. Its a tough conference and we had our share of talented players to compete against the other teams, Painter said. Any time you can get recognition for your players its a positive for the program. Second-place Chipola had six rstteamers and three players on each of the secondand honorable-mention teams. Third-place Northwest Florida State had 10 players on the three teams, including four rst-teamers. Fifth-place Pensacola had 11 players recognized and fourth-place Tallahassee only four, with two on the second team. McLemore and Sanders joined inelder Amanda Grimaldo, at-large utility player Anna Martin and pitcher Paige Caraway on the rst team. Out elders Katie White and Sian Colee, third baseman Brittany Wylie and catcher Mackenzie Arlt were second-teamers. Sanders, an Indian River transfer, surpassed the other four rst-team out elders in nearly every statistical category. She led all in elders in batting average (.432), hits (83), doubles (16), home runs (14) and RBIs (44) and was second only to Grimaldo in runs (46). Sanders anchored second base and lled in at shortstop for Grimaldo, who missed a few games with a nger injury. McLemore established herself as one of the conferences top pitchers as a freshman with 21 wins and 165 strikeouts. She improved on those numbers this season with a 26-10 record and 219 strikeouts in 218 1/3 innings pitched while also lowering her ERA to 1.38 after posting a 1.74 mark in 2012. She rebounded from a rough start in conference play, giving up 10 runs in 5 2/3 innings of two appearances against NWF State. She started 1-2 in Panhandle outings, but she won ve in a row, including earning the victorious decision in both games of doubleheaders against Tallahassee and NWF State to help the Lady Commodores build a rst-place lead they wouldnt relinquish. Caraway provided a complement to McLemore and grew stronger as the season progressed. She had 103 strikeouts to only 14 walks in 93 innings while posting a 9-3 record. Chipolas Eva Voortman and Sneads product Karissa Childs rounded out the rst-team pitchers. Voortman was 17-2 and nished 6-1 in conference starts and Childs was 10-6. Chipolas Hayley Parker, Kristen Allen, Stephanie Garrells and Mya Anderson also made the rst team. GC and Chipola will compete in the NJCAA Gulf District/FCSAA state tournament in Pensacola May 3-5. The winner of the Gulf District earns a berth in the national tournament. Were excited about the awards, Painter said. But we have to get back to work. District 2-1A Holmes County 4, Baker 0 BAKER Holmes County junior left-hander Ty Russ saved his best for the playoffs. Russ (6-2) pitched his third no-hitter of the season Tuesday night, but this time he was perfect. The Blue Devil struck out 10 of the 21 batters he faced in the seven-inning District 2-1A semi nal. Holmes Countys Junior Miles was 1 for 2 with two runs scored, Russ 2-3 with a triple and two RBIs, Kodi Russ 1-3 with an RBI double and Jordan Worthing 1-3 with an RBI double. District 2-6A Crestview 3, Mosley 2 CRESTVIEW Davis Champion went the distance on the mound for Crestview and Mosley couldnt nd the big hit against him in the district nal. Dakota Dean had a pair of hits and scored a run for the Bulldogs (21-5). Champion earned the win the hard way, scattering 11 Dolphin hits to go along with just four strikeouts. But Champion made the Mosley batters work to reach base as he didnt allow a walk. The Dolphins (24-3), the No. 1 Class 6A team in the state, looked as if they were going to make short work of things with four-consecutive one-out hits in the rst inning. But Mosley only got one run out of the threat as the inning ended on the rst double play. The Bulldogs tied things up in the third inning as Dean tripled and scored on a passed ball. Mosley strung together three more hits good for another run in the bottom of the fourth inning, but another double play snuffed out the threat. Crestview got back-toback doubles from Tate Sweatt and Roman Donofro to lead off the fth inning and tie the game up. A two-out single by Corey Armstrong scored Donofro with the game winning run. Mosley had a runner in scoring position in both the sixth and seventh innings, but Champion and the Bulldogs wouldnt be denied as they kept the Dolphins off the scoreboard to claim the win. Larry was 3 for 4, Clay Causey 2 for 3 and Brady Bell 2 for 4, while Joey Hair pitched ve innings for the loss. Andrew Deramo nished up for the Dolphins. District 4-1A Liberty County 4, Bozeman 0 BRISTOL Bozeman faced Liberty County in the District 4-1A nal for the second straight year. And just like in 2012, the Bucks were the victims of a no-hitter. It was Hayden Swiers turn this year, as he had two strikeouts and three walks. Bozeman also had a batter reach on an error. The Bucks (17-9) had base runners on second and third in the rst inning and another on third in the fourth, but were unable to make a dent in the outcome. Liberty County scored two runs in each of the rst and sixth innings, each charged to starter and loser Reed Ruddick. He had three strikeouts and gave up ve hits. Brandon Suttles pitched to three batters without recording an out and Michael Cullen nished up for Bozeman. The Bucks will travel to the winner of Sneads-Vernon in the regional semi nal May 7. Bozeman also started on the road last season and advanced to the state semi nals before falling to Holmes County. Weve been on this side of it so hopefully we can draw on our experience, Bozeman coach Jeff Patton said. We need to nd some toughness with the bats, but well have a say. Well do better.

I am proud to present the Governors Shine Award to teachers who go above and beyond to make a difference in education. The participating 2013-14 District Teach ers of the Year included: Susan Rigby, Escambia County, Pine Forest High School: Rigby has been teach ing for 13 years and currently teaches ninth-grade mathematics at Pine Forest High School. Rigby attributes her passion for teaching to her students success in the classroom. My students see my passion for teaching every day. I believe in them. I care about them. This has changed their attitude about math and learning. They be lieve in themselves, Rigby said. Nicole Roddenberry, Jefferson County, Jefferson Elementary School: If a child cant learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn, is a say ing rst-grade teacher Roddenberry holds close to her heart. My teaching style is one that is engaging, interactive and challeng ing. I implement differentiated instruction so that each student is challenged at their own level, Roddenberry said. Heather Erickson-Vaughn, Okaloosa County, Elliott Point Elementary School; Erickson-Vaughn has been teaching for eight years and is currently a kindergar ten teacher at Elliot Point Elementary School, where she fosters an environment of love and respect in her classroom.

Florida Panhandle Team volunteers are sorting supplies and bags of items to give to the children of the families that they will minister to with the Water and Feeding Ministry. The team gives out beans and rice to the families in the poorer sections of Guaimaca, Honduras. Volunteers mix the concrete for the 11 oors they poured in eight houses. Before the missionaries arrived, the oors in the houses were dirt, and when it rained, it was very muddy. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY For almost 12 years David Lauen, associate pastor and minister of music of the First Baptist Church of Bonifay, has been leading mission trips to Honduras, but this year will be the biggest trip by far. Since 2001, weve been making trips to Honduras, and weve average between six to 30 volunteers. This time were taking 60, Lauen said. With a group from Marianna, weve got enough people to be known as the Florida Panhandle Team. One project they are in the process of completing is building a hospital, which is 10 years in the making. When we rst got started, it was a 50-foot by 100-foot hospital, then we added another 50-foot by 100-foot wing, and then Samaritans Purse donated thousands for four state of the art operating rooms, and it just keeps growing, Lauen said. Weve got over 26 surgical teams to donate their time and services. As the facility grows wonderful equipment is donated to ll it. Last year, they mixed and poured 11 concrete oors for eight houses. They were living on dirt oors and every time it rained they would have water running through the house, Lauen said. Now they can have dry oors. An ongoing mission is to bring clean water to the residents homes. Their water system is pathetic, like most third-world countries, he said. Were trying to lay out PVC pipes to put faucets at these houses. Last time, we were able to bring them a 10,000 gallon water tank to help supply clean water. He said even though it has been quite a bit of hard work, it was worth it. It is exciting, Lauen said. We take a lot for granted in this country and have a lot to be thankful for. This is a life changing trip for some. Lauen said the group will hold a fundraiser starting at 10:30 a.m. on May 10 on the Cooks Corner at the intersection of Highway 79 and Highway 90, where they will be selling rib-eye steak dinners for $10, which will include green beans, new potatoes, bread and cake. All proceeds will go to purchasing medical supplies for the Honduran hospital. The group will be leaving for Honduras on June 15. For more information, visit BMDMI.org.

Americans have been ingenious in turning something simple into a sport for everyone to enjoy. I must say I have enjoyed my share of sports. When younger, I was a baseball fan. I went to as many games as possible. The Stadium in Baltimore Maryland was just a few minutes from my house so I could visit it often, and I often did. I did not really care who won the game as long as it was a good game played, not to mention the hotdogs. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage accused me of going to ball games just to eat hotdogs. Whenever I would return from a ballgame the rst question would be, not who won the game but, How many hotdogs did you eat? If the truth was known, and you will not get it from me, many a hotdog sacri ced itself at a ballgame. After all, when you are watching a ballgame, who has time to keep track of how many hotdogs you are eating? I did have a moment of anxiety once when my wife threatened to weigh me before the game and then weigh me after the game to see if I had eaten too many hotdogs. When she rst mentioned it I laughed, but I noticed she was not laughing, which caused me some deep concern. Fortunately, for me it never got to that but came perilously close. Nothing is more relaxing on a Saturday afternoon than sitting in a ballpark watching a ballgame in progress. Somehow, all the cares of the world seem to utter away while watching the game. It all ended for me one summer. I had come into the house from some chore and my wife greeted me by saying, Do you know your ball team is on strike? I looked at her, laughed and said, I know. They get three strikes and then theyre out. Thats the way they play the game. I winked at her and laughed goodnaturedly. Finally, I said to her, youre coming to understand what the game is all about. No, you dont understand. Your team is on strike. I get you, and this Saturday Im going to go and watch them strike again. It took me a while but nally my wife got through the thickness of my skull and got me to understand the strike she was talking about was not the strike I was talking about. It is always nice when people are on the same page. In a marriage situation, the biggest challenge a couple has is staying on the same page. Even though the husband and wife might be reading the same book, for some reason wives have the ability to read three or four chapters ahead. When a husband tries to correct her she impatiently says, We were on that page last week. Try to keep up. Try as we might, it is a rare husband who can keep up. But we try. When I got up to the same page as my wife about the baseball team on strike, I was feeling rather low. What do you think about your baseball game now, she taunted. As it turned out, the baseball team was actually out on strike and if I remember correctly, we missed the whole season that year. They were on strike for, you will never guess, more money. Up to that point, I thought the players played because they loved the game. Boy was I on the wrong page with that. I went to games because I love the game and it did not matter to me who won or lost as long as it was a good game. Now, to nd out that my heroes, if you can call them such, were primarily interested in money was disheartening. I have never been able to watch a game since with the same excitement I did before. Why cant we just have fun? Why does life have to be such a battle? Why cant we have a baseball game just for the fun of it? Recently, I attended a baseball game at the local high school. I thought I would just go and enjoy the game. I did not know any of the players; I just wanted to enjoy the game. Then I met an unfamiliar phenomenon of high school baseball. Parents of baseball players! The game started as normal but soon the air exploded with shouting and yelling in the stands. I did not quite understand what all the noise was about at the time. Two women, imagine that, got in a st ght over the ballgame! They were mothers of two of the players on opposite teams. That was just the beginning of the shouting and the yelling that afternoon. As I walked away, I sadly shook my head and said to myself, Why cant we just have fun? I believe the Preacher in the book of Ecclesiastes explains it well. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit (Ecclesiastes 1:14 KJV). Some are so caught up in the vanity and vexations of life that they never know what it is like to just enjoy life. Why cant we just have a little bit of fun? Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

The board approved Commissioner Bill Parishs recommendation of Raymond Thomas and Commissioner David Whitakers recommendation of Chuck Dockery. Board Chairman Monty Merchant said there was only one more resignation that needs attending to, which is that of Lenora Campbell. Its time to take a serious look at the development commission and get the ball rolling, said Merchant. There still isnt a director yet but theres a growing concern about the development commission. Ive had questions to me about the development commission having a lot of money and wondering what they are doing for the county. Parish said one problem with the development commission is low attendance, apathy and lack of participation. We need to take a stronger look at how we choose those members, Bill seeks to loosen liquor lawsBy MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com BONIFAY Liquor laws could get looser in several rural Panhandle counties. The Florida Legislature passed a bill last week (HB 347) that could help all restaurants sell liquor, wine and beer in counties where that is not currently allowed, including Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington counties. The bill would affect sales of by the drink alcohol, which are beverages consumed where theyre purchased, such as restaurants and bars. But, even if the bill is signed by the governor, which appears likely it cleared the House 111-4 and the Senate 36-0 it doesnt automatically legalize by the drink sales throughout the counties. The measure would fall back into the hands of local voters, who would have an easier time getting it on the ballot. Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington currently do not sell liquor by the drink. State Rep. Marti Coley, a Marianna Republican, said twice in recent years there has been an effort to get the issue on the ballot, but it failed. The Legislatures response was to water down the process. Under current state law, to get an initial election on the sale of alcohol in a county, an application must be presented to the county commission with 25 percent of registered voters signatures. If that initial election allows alcohol to be sold only in package stores, then the county residents must again round up 25 percent of voters By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY The city of Blountstown, located in Northeast Calhoun County, operates on a $3 million per year budget and is struggling to keep up with infrastructure needs. Its no cheaper to x things here than it is in a big city, said City Manager Emory Pierce. But in big cities with multi-million dollar budgets, a couple of thousand dollars to x something is nothing. The story is similar for rural communities across the Panhandle region, and U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, is hoping a new bill might help those areas he said form the backbone of North and Northwest Florida. Southerland recently introduced the Building Rural Communities Act, a bill aimed at giving rural government of cials the necessary tools to plan largescale improvement projects in a more cost-effective manner. Co-sponsored by Rep. Mike McIntyre, DN.C., the legislation would channel between 3 and 5 percent of funding from the U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) Rural Development Essential Communities Facilities loan and grant program toward technical assistance and nancial planning for rural communities. Unfortunately, across America many of these bedrock communities are fading away because they cant match the access to infrastructure and services that larger cities provide, Southerland said. Our legislation will make it easier for rural communities to thrive by providing the technical assistance and project planning they need to strengthen public safety, public health, and public access to upgraded services all at no additional cost to taxpayers. Pierce said funding issues have halted a project to run a force main sewer line from Altha, a small town to the northwest, to the Blountstown New HCDC members appointed by BOCCBill aims to help rural communities Photo by RANDAL SEYLER | The NewsMembers of the Knights of Columbus Council 10513 Infant of Prague made a donation of $5,000 to ARC of Washington-Holmes Counties on Monday in Chipley.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 1, 2013signatures to put it back on the ballot for by the drink sales in restaurants. Thats the issue in Jackson County. The recently passed bill would require only one-tenth of voters signatures, or a majority vote by the county commission. That would put the issue on the ballot to legalize by the drink sales of beer, wine and liquor containing more than 6.243 percent alcohol by volume. Present situation Jackson County Commissioner Willie Spires said about ve of the 11 municipalities allow restaurants to serve beer. He said some businesses just outside the city limits feel its unfair because their competition can serve alcohol while they cant. People are optimistic that now they can get it on the ballot and get it passed, he said. Spires can be counted among those who wouldnt mind seeing alcohol served in restaurants throughout the county. I see it as a good thing, he said. I think living in a small rural area such as Jackson County that we miss out on a lot of tax [revenue] that could be generated; a lot of people in our area go to Panama City or Dothan (Ala.) or Tallahassee. Spires said allowing alcohol to be served in restaurants countywide could translate into economic development, ushering more restaurants like Red Lobster or Applebees. Spires said he thought Jackson County residents would like to see the law changed, too. The county has 28,773 registered voters and would need 2,878 signatures to get the measure on the ballot. Calhoun County has 8,276 registered voters and would need 827 signatures to get the measure on the ballot. Holmes County has 11,375 registered voters and would need 1,138 signatures. Liberty County has 4,403 registered voters and would need 441 signatures. Washington County has 14,665 voters so would need 1,467 signatures. Or the county commissions, through a majority vote, could put the measure in the voters hands. Legislative process Coley said she wasnt necessarily opposed to the policy, but she voted against it because it was tacked onto the bill late in the process as an amendment. The substance of the amendment was never heard in committee and only affects three counties, she said in a statement. Since it was added on the House oor, there was not time to contact the communities that will be impacted. Coley said the legislation should have been a standalone bill, so it would have had adequate time to be debated and those impacted could offer input. She concluded, However, in the end, the citizens still have the nal decision. Coley was able to round up two of her Panhandle colleagues state Reps. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello, and Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City to vote against the bill, which passed by a landslide. State Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone Heights, also voted against it. Patronis took the same view as Coley. Hey, I like live and let live, and I think all thats ne, he said of liquor laws, but theres a process in place and those people in Jackson County, if they wanted it, they would have asked their legislator to le a bill and go through the normal vetting process. Patronis is co-owner of Capt. Andersons, which serves beer, wine and mixed drinks. His problem with the amendment was that it was led on the House oor 24 hours before it was voted on. Rep. Ronald Doc Renuart, R-Ponte Vedra Beach, who sponsored the bill, also led the amendment. A lot of people didnt know about it, Patronis said.

What we need is some go-getters, said Sasnett. Young, intelligent and willing to work. County Attorney Jeff Goodman recommended that the commissioners hold a workshop with the development council after the last new member is appointed and had time to settle in and discuss roles, responsibilities and goals. Its important that the board encourages things to get moving, said Merchant. Get them on helping our businesses and to bring new businesses in. The board approved of Merchants request to start their mosquito spraying immediately. Weve already started getting complaints about mosquitoes, said Merchant. I know we said wed start around May 1 to mid May, but cant we start immediately? Well retain the same six-month period, were just starting early. The commissioners also approved signing Proclamation Viva Florida 500, recognizing the 500th anniversary of Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leons landing on Floridas coast in April 1513. The board also agreed to ght the new legislative Medicare county cost, which would push their payments from $280 a year to $1,700, which is a 62 percent increase. Please contact your senator and share with them your feelings, said Merchant. BOOCC from page A1wastewater treatment plant. Currently, all of Althas buildings run off of septic tanks. Without real community sewer lines, they are severely limited in Altha and along that entire corridor toward Blountstown, Pierce said. He said the Calhoun County School District is exploring options for a new high school in Altha, but the current infrastructure cannot support a structure that size. Overall, Pierce said he would support any bill that could help rural areas like Blountstown. We have the normal aging infrastructure that all cities big and small have, and we are searching for funding to help with our internally generated funds, said Pierce, who noted the city cannot raise utility rates for fear of losing customers. All people and businesses here are strapped. If we raise rates, I would estimate we would lose several customers and the community just cant stand that. Southerlands bill was referred to the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture for further consideration.

Skyla Carter of Chipley told the commissioners she had concerns about county interviewing policies that were raised when she requested e-mails of county ofcials through the Florida Sunshine Law. In the e-mails, Commissioner Lynn Gothard asked Heather Finch, former human resources director for the county, to send her a copy of the public safety director job description, but to send it to a different e-mail account. Currently the county does not have a public safety director, since the retirement of Roger Hagan in December. I was concerned about the e-mail being sent to a different address, Carter said. I had made a request for all e-mails about the public safety director position, and I was wondering if there were any e-mails I didnt receive. Gothard said she knew what Carter was talking about. I sent Heather an e-mail asking her to send a copy of the job description to me, Gothard said. Her husband, Washington County Fire Chief Al Gothard, has many professional contacts and he would be able to spread the word that the county was looking for a public safety director. He knows several qualied professionals and he could pass on the information to them, Gothard said. The job description and advertisement of the job opening had already been published, Gothard said. We were wanting to get as broad a selection of candidates as possible, there was nothing underhanded about the e-mail. Gothard said at the meeting on Thursday that she in no way got involved in the hiring process during the search for a public safety director. However, according to a March 22 letter written by Emergency Management employee Connie Welch to Lynne Abel, emergency management coordinator, Gothard had plans to create a public safety director position and she had a person in mind to hire for that job. Soon after the election, Washington County Fire Chief Gothard was in my ofce and advised me of his and his wifes plan for a Public Safety Division Director and he and his wife had the perfect person for the position in mind, Welch wrote. According to a letter to the board from Grant Coordinator Stacy Webb, dated March 27, Gothard had approached Carol Park and Webb on March 12 wanting to see the applications for the Public Safety Position. She was very demanding and came across as being forceful, Webb wrote. Carol and I looked at each other for a couple of seconds and after a brief hesitation, we reluctantly acknowledged her request and Carol escorted her into her ofce where the applications were kept in a safe and I proceeded to my ofce. According to the county attorney, applications for county jobs are public records and, minus social security numbers and health-related information, they are open to public inspection. Also at Thursdays meeting, the commissioners voted to rescind an earlier vote and move the Emergency Medical Services department out from under the purview of the public safety director. At the Jan. 24 board meeting, it was Commissioner Gothard who made the motion to move the Emergency Medical Services back under the public safety directors control per the countys Proposed Progressive Governmental Structure chart, approved in 2008. After discussion, the commissioners voted at the January meeting to make the move, with Commissioner Joel Pate voting against the change. On the organizational chart, in 2008 the EMS is listed under the Public Safety director, but in 2009 the chart was revised and EMS was moved out to be a department on its own. The public safety directors job description for the directors position was to revert back to the old description and the job was to be re-advertised, per the commissioners decision, the board decided on Thursday.

Bare eld, Publisher Randal Seyler, Editor Cameron Everett, Production SupervisorUnited We StandDear Editor, Americans are united today in condemning terrorism and in the conviction that those responsible for the terrorist attacks in Boston must face justice. This cowardly attack resulted in the murders of an eight-year-old boy and two women, and the wounding of many others. As God tells us in the Quran, if you murder one person, it as if you murdered all of humanity. While we are outraged at the terrorists, we have been inspired by the unity of Americans of all backgrounds. We are a resilient people. Now that we know the identity of the perpetrators, this unity is ever more important. We will show the terrorists that their plan to sow division and distrust has failed. People of goodwill are not afraid. America will stay united. American Muslims thank law enforcement for their diligent efforts to protect all our nations citizens. We send our sincere condolences to the loved ones of the MIT police of cer killed overnight and our prayers are with the law enforcement of cial who was wounded. We reiterate the American Muslim communitys consistent condemnation of terrorism in all its forms. Sincerely,Dr. Mohammad Yunus BonifayEveryone can make a differenceDear Editor, This years Earth Day served as an outstanding reminder that everyone can make an important difference for the environment through the simple act of donating gently used clothing or household items to Goodwill. Each year, donors help Goodwill prevent more than two billion pounds of usable goods from ending up in land lls. But the impact to the environment is only part of the story. Revenue raised from the sale of donated items at Goodwill stores funds job training programs, employment placement services and other vital programs in the community. People, as well as the planet, bene t. To show individuals how their donations truly impact their communities, Goodwill developed a Donation Impact Calculator (http://donate. goodwill.org). The calculator shows how your donation can help a person receiving services from Goodwill. For example, a donation of one working computer translates into 5.8 hours of a job search class that can help a person right in our community who may be unemployed and struggling to support his or her family. Goodwill encourages everyone to making one small green change in your life. Individual actions add up to global impact. Not only will you be helping those in your community who face challenges in nding employment, but you will also reduce waste in our land lls. To nd your nearest Goodwill donation site, go to www.goodwillbigbend.com.Brooke LochoreVice President of Public Relations Letters to the EDITORBeing able to see the Doolittle Raiders at their last reunion caused me to research the World War II event that changed the course of the war with Japan and reminds us of the spirit that carried so many of our military men through that that historical time. In my article last week, I said the three surviving Raiders were at their nal reunion. According to an Associated Press release from Eglin Air Force Base, there is one additional surviving member of the original 80 men, Robert Hite, 93, who was unable to make the trip. Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, 91, Lt. Col Edward Saylor, 97, and Lt. Col. Richard Cole, 97, made several public appearances. I also want to correct a glaring error from last weeks article. John McCain was the prisoner of war incarcerated with Bud Day. Cole actually ew a B-25 that he ew in the 1942 raid over Japan during their appearance at Destin Airport. Larry Kelly, who grew up in Enterprise, Ala., and is the rst cousin of local resident Mrs. Jake Jacobs (Alice), owns the vintage plane. A member of the Raiders Foundation, Kelly took Cole up for a spin. The 97-year-old waved to the crowd on takeoff and then took the controls, ying the plane and landing it perfectly. Larry Kelly, who is a WWII and aviation enthusiast, owns an air museum in Georgetown, Del., ragwingsandradials.com. A retired pharmacist and pharmaceutical consultant, he participates in air shows and WWII historical events, often accompanying the Raiders. Because of several movies, many who are too young to remember the secret mission that boosted American morale four months after the day that will go down in infamy have an idea of the events that occurred. Sixteen B-25 planes were launched for the rst time from an aircraft carrier to carry out a surprise raid on the Japanese mainland. Most of the B25 crews came down in China, and 69 eventually made their way to safety with help from the Chinese. Staff Sgt. William J Dieter and Sgt. Donald E Fitzmaurice drowned when their B-25s crashed into the sea. Eight were captured by the Japanese: Lt. Donald Halmark, Lt. Robert J. Meder, Lt. Chase Nelson, Lt. William G. Farrow, Lt. Robert L. Hite, Lt. George Barr, and Cpls Harold A. Spatz and Jacvob DeShzer. Halmark, DeShazer and Spatz were executed by ring squad. Meder was left in solitary con nement where he died. The remaining four men eventually began to receive better treatment and were given a copy of the Bible and a few books that helped them to be able to survive until they were freed by American troops in 1945. Of those who survived, most went on to other bombing missions in both the Paci c and European theaters. All Raiders received the Flying Cross. Those killed or wounded received the Purple Heart. All received decoration from the Chinese government. Although Doolittle himself feared that he might be court marshaled because of the loss of the planes, he received the Presidential Medal of Honor. Even though the raid did insigni cant damage to mainland Japan, it gave our country a great morale boost after Pearl Harbor and Japans dominance there. It also caused the Japanese to focus on protecting their own Island nation and helped to bring American victory in the defense of Midway Islands. Though the Japanese suffered light casualties in the Tokyo raid, they extracted a heavy toll on the Chinese who aided the Americans. 250,000 were slaughtered as a result. Speaking about the crews attitude concerning the attack, Cole, Doolittles co-pilot said, We were pretty upbeat about what was going to happen. We just did what we had to do. This is typical of the veterans of that war. Most of them were young and had the attitude that we have a job to do, lets get it done. They kept their faith and their sense of humor. Lt. Col Saylor joked with young airmen in the audience concerning his reaction about the bombing, .it was too far to swim back home so we might as well go ahead with it. We need to continue to tell their story and celebrate their bravery as we keep their legacy alive. HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Doolittle Raiders: preserving the legacy The 1944 Vernon High School graduating class held its scheduled reunion at Baileys Surf and Turf Restaurant in Chipley on Saturday evening, April 20. We were celebrating 69 years since our graduation on Thursday, April 20, 1944. Our high school years were shrouded with the reality of war. History was made when principal, Mr. Mercer Cox, arranged for the largest radio he could locate in Vernon to be brought into the auditorium for the entire student body to hear an important announcement. It was on Monday, December 8, 1941, the day following the attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor. The whole assembly heard President Franklin D. Roosevelt, of cially declare war on Japan, and later Germany. The atmosphere of war affected the lives of every one, with Vernon being no exception. Dozens of young men in the school, who were approaching draft age, chose to enlist in the military service thus being able to choose their branch of service. Some select students remember being called on to perform a duty, possibility under the umbrella of Civil Air Patrol. Student observers positioned themselves in the old courthouse in Vernon for the purpose of looking for any aircraft ying in the area, and report all sightings. My brother, Jim, vividly recalls performing that service as does Frederick Kolmetz and Odell Ward. Jim reports: We were on the ground oor of the almost abandoned old courthouse in a small room with windows which allowed us to look for the ying activity. He continued: Our telephone was an extension from the old Parrish General Store, and one of the very few phones in the town. He remembers this as strictly a volunteer service, and never recalls any real signi cance coming from the efforts, such as spotting an enemy, or unauthorized airplane. Brothers, Carl and Oakley Hightower, members of the 44 class left school prior to graduation to join the military. Carl entered the Army Air Corps and Oakley joined the U. S. Army. A third classmate, Allee Whidden, chose the U. S. Marine Corps. Classmates, William T. McFatter, Jr. and Thomas H. Knight, spent their senior year of high school in a Military Academy, with Bill entering the Army and Thomas choosing the Navy. After graduations, 1944 Vernon High School Class found their way into the military to ful ll their patriotic duty. Veston Neswsom and Frederick Kolmetz chose the Navy. Archie L. Cook, Hurdis A. Brock and Perry E. Wells became soldiers in the Army Bill McFatter suffered combat wounds to the legs while serving in the European Theater of the war. Archie Cook was captured by the Germans and spent time as a POW. Our rst class reunion was in 1964 20 years after nishing school. Mr. Jack Perkins, a retired military Mess Sergeant, was the lunchroom manager at Vernon High School at the time. He agreed to open the school lunchroom, prepare the meal, serve us and provide all the clean up with the total cost assessed at $1.25 per person! I hope we gave him a generous tip. The second reunion in 1989, was held at the Chipley Motel Restaurant, then the top eatery in town. We also met there in the years, 1992, 1994 and 1997. The year 2000 was the mammoth one, held at the Northwest Florida Campground and Music Park. VHS Graduating classes from 1940-41 through 1950-51 were included. Music was provided by Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, as Doyle was born on April 20, 1944. Others performing were Sand Hills City Limits, headed by W. T. Miller and son, Jimmy Miller and Sheriff Buddy Smith, and his musical group from Blountstown. The 1944 class has met annually, and at a variety of places since 2000. In 2002, our meeting place was the Wells homestead, with food catered by Angie Morris and daughter Jill. Only three class members, Frances Shores Fussell, Fredrick Kolmetz and Perry E. Wells, attended this years event. Two of Hurdis Brocks son, Steve and Stan, along with wife, Kay, came. His two brothers, Drexel, along with son, Doug, and Bill, accompanied by wife, Betty, and their son, Gordon, added to the numbers. Frances Fussell, husband, Julius,, grandson, Clint, daughter Mary, and her husband, Terry Driggers, and their three year old grand daughter, Zoe attended. James Earl Guy and wife, Naomi, came again this year although his mother, Myrtle Haddock Guy, was unable to come. Nadine Kolmetz accompanied her husband, and Hester was with me, along with two of our sons, Gordon and Tim and wife, Debbie. Emma Lou Chesser Tew and Thomas H. Knight had to cancel when medical issues thwarted their plans just days before the event. Indirectly, word was received that Estelle Hewett Scott, Bessie Lee Milton Davenport and Carl Hightower would be unable to attend. Louvern Chestnut Mizell called from Virginia, reported her inability to attend. Bill McFatter wrote a letter, stating he could not be with us and expressed doubt that his sister, and our classmate, Carol McFatter Hudson, would be able to come. Myrtle Morris Wolfe wrote a note stating she could not attend this year. Trudell Brock Worthington held high hopes of being at the event, but obviously did not feel up to the task. The group comprising the Vernon High School class of 1944 recognizes that we may have set a record of keeping in touch following graduation 69 years ago. We also recognize the time has come when attendance is becoming dif cult for some, and impossible for others. We will probably look closely at all circumstances prior to planning further reunions. See you all next week.VHS Class of 1944 celebrates graduation shrouded in warWednesday, May 1, 2013PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells

The donation was raised during the companys fth annual Bring Your Old Buddy golf tournament at Dogwood Lakes in Bonifay. We are thrilled to present this check to the United Way of Northwest Florida, said Phillip Metcalf of Trawick Construction. They make such a huge impact in our community and we are proud of our partnership with them. Trawick Construction is a leading provider of outside plant services to telecom and long line companies throughout the U.S. I cant thank you guys enough for holding the golf tournament, said Mary Smith of the Washington County Council on Aging, a United Way agency. Our goal is to provide for the founders of Washington County, to meet their needs and to keep them in their homes for as long as possible. Smith said the Council on Aging has suffered a 15 percent budget decrease in the last two years, and because of budget constraints, the Meals on Wheels program is limited and there is a waiting list of seniors requesting hot meals. Well do anything we can to help promote the golf tournament, said Smith. Just let us know and well do what we can to help. This golf tournament is so important because there is a real need for these services, said Nicole Bareeld, publisher of the Washington County News and the Holmes County Times-Advertiser said. We see it every day. For every dollar you donate, the Council on Aging gets $9 in matching funds. I dont know anywhere else you can get a 9-to-1 return on your money, said Ron Sharpe, director of resource development for United Way of Northwest Florida. The money raised by the local golf tournament stays in Northwest Florida and helps our United Way agencies and our neighbors, Sharpe said. You know how important it is what you guys are doing, I hope you can hear the sincerity when we say thank you, Sharpe told the Trawick employees. You didnt have to do this tournament, but you got involved and did it. That is so awesome.Bonifay man arrested on charges of possession of listed chemicalsFrom Staff ReportsBONIFAY A Holmes County Sheriffs deputy arrested a Bonifay man on charges of possessing chemicals needed to make meth after being stopped for a tag violation on April 18, according to a sheriffs ofce news release.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Ive plowed this ground before, but Im going to dig in and plow it again which is the temperature of the Gulf along the beaches, or better yet where the readings originate. What the temperature is 10 miles offshore is of no concern to pompano and ling shermen. No one can tell me with any accuracy just where these Gulf temperatures are coming from. It is possible to pull up a buoy offshore on your computer and get a reading, or you can listen to the news and get another, but to get one that is important to shermen a mile offshore is impossible to verify. The only way I can come up with a temperature that is close to accurate is to ask a sherman with a temperature gauge on his boat. The last time I tracked down where the Gulf temperature was being recorded here turned out to be at the city marina. The water temperature at the city marina is 5 degrees warmer than the Gulf. People do not sh for pompano or ling at the city marina. Last week one station was reporting 70 degrees in the Gulf and who knows where that came from. A friend shing the same day told me his bottom machine was reporting 65 degrees in 20 feet of water. That was more realistic than a reading from who knows where of 70 degrees. Sixtyve degrees is a long way from 70. The boats in Destin were reporting temperatures in the 70s and they were catching ling. That was not the case here. Eight or 10, or event 10-20 ling being caught here in a week is not a lot of ling when some years back we were catching that many a day. For some reason we just arent getting the warm water we have in the past. The Mexico Beach Ling Ding tournament up until this weekend had three ling brought to the dock. Organizers want this tournament to rival the event it was 15 years ago, but nature has dealt them a bad hand. Who knows, a thermal of warm water may swing their way. I hope so. Pompano are showing up little by little. Cussing Cousin, my eyes and ears shing from one of our piers, tells me he is seeing some schools of pompano passing by the pier where he is shing heading west to points unknown. But not enough to write home about. Some shermen are catching pompano from their boats, some tipping jigs with sand eas and some not. I have bombed out in two days shing, but in my defense the wind was blowing a hurricane both days. I suppose talking temperatures this late in the game is a moot conversation. In about three weeks the majority of the ling will have passed on west, so it wont make much difference.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net SHARK CHALLENGEBy FRANK SARGEANTfranksargeant@charter.net White sharks are rare creatures pretty much anywhere in the worlds oceans these days, but theyre particularly unusual in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. About the only white shark seen in the Panhandle is a plastic replica hanging upside down outside a restaurant. In fact, Captain Sam Maisano and his son, Captain Joe Maisano, who run Go Fast Charters out of Treasure Island near St. Petersburg, never had seen one in a lifetime of shing these waters up to 125 miles offshore or roughly due south of Apalach. Until March 15. Then they saw and hooked a shark that went way beyond any of their wildest imaginings. We were shing some wrecks in about 90 feet of water 30 miles west of Johns Pass, Maisano said. We were on a good bite, pulling up a lot of big gag grouper, some amberjacks, and we had caught and released several Goliath groupers over 300 pounds, so there was a lot of underwater noise going on, and Id guess thats what attracted the shark. Maisano said he saw a n come up about 100 yards back of the boat and could tell immediately it was a large shark. But he had no idea how large until it came cruising by the boat a few minutes later. That shark was every bit of 18 feet long, Maisano said. I could tell because it was over half as long as our 32-foot Donzi. He said that not only the incredible length but the girth of the monster shocked him. It was just enormous, maybe 4 feet across the head, Maisano said. I could tell from the body shape, almost stubby like at the tail, that it had to be a great white, and after we saw it a few more times I was certain. He guessed the weight of the beast at between 2,500 and 3,000 pounds. Not to be daunted, the Maisanos and their charter for the day, Fab Marchese of Ancaster, Ontario, decided to take on the giant. I lleted a ve pound slab of bonito, which is a very bloody sh, and rigged it up on one of the Goliath grouper rods, which are set up to handle really big sh, Maisano said. The line was 150-pound-test Power Pro braid, leading to a length of 200 pound test mono and then to a strand of heavy wire bite leader. The hook was an 18/0. The bait was oated out under a balloon. It didnt take right away, Maisano said. It swam around downtide for about 15 minutes, and then it nally smelled it and we were hooked up. Fortunately, the 45-year-old Marchese was in good shape because of his occupation, running a construction company in Ontario. He would need to be; for the next four hours and 30 minutes, he sat in the ghting chair at the bow of the Donzi while the Maisanos followed the giant sh. It would go down to bottom for 30 minutes, and I couldnt move it up, and then it would come up for a few minutes, sometimes come by the boat, and then down for another 30 minutes, Marchese said. It swam along down at about 70 feet when it was down Joe told me he could see it on the sonar. They followed the shark over 4 miles from where they had hooked it, sometimes gaining line, sometimes losing. It never displayed any aggression toward them, Maisano said. Ive had bull sharks come up and really attack the outdrives when theyre hooked, but this shark never did I dont think it ever really got to the point where it was panicking or mad I think we were probably a good eight or 10 hours from beating it, if we ever could have. In any case, after a quick con rmation that great whites are a protected species that cant be boated or possessed, the anglers decided to bring the sh close enough for a leader touchthe universal coup in catch and release shing and then to cut it free. They brought the shark close for a few last photos, then snipped the wire and the giant swam off into the depths, leaving Fab Marchese with a shing tale to end all shing tales when he gets back home. Fab and the Maisanos have been elding media interviews ever since they posted a YouTube video of their epic battle. When I spoke to them Tuesday, they were waiting on the docks for a crew from Good Morning America to arrive for taping. To see the video and learn more about the Maisanos, visit their website www.gofast shing. com (Theres a good bit of adult language on the video when the shark rst comes up at boatside, as you might expectanybody who can look a shark of that size in the eye at close range and not utter an expletive is much man indeed.) Are there great whites off the Panhandle?Scientists say there could be. The species prefers water temperatures in the 60s, which are common in Panhandle waters from December through March. And the large pelagic species like yellow ns, blue ns and sword sh are common in offshore waters here all are on the menu for great whites. Where mammal prey is abundant, whites seem to prefer the high energy esh; seals, whales and porpoises are all part of their diet. Researchers say that white sharks historically might have prowled the Gulf in search of the Caribbean monk seal, which was common here until it went extinct in the 1940s. However, as far as white sharks ever threatening Panhandle beaches, the odds are slim. Swimmers dont show up on area beaches until water temperatures are already too warm for comfort of carcharodon carcharias, and the gentle shelf in most areas is not conducive to long visits from this speciesthough as was made notorious through the lm Jaws, they do sometimes prowl near shore in New England waters.Whites elsewhere in FloridaThe East Coast gets more frequent visits from this giant predator. According to Neil Hammerschlag, an assistant professor at the University of Miamis Marine Science department who has studied great whites for over a decade, he gets a call almost every year about a sherman or boater seeing one. In 2011, commercial spear shermen off Deer eld Beach had one take an amberjack off one of their spears as they oated the sh to the surface. They were also commercial sharkers who knew shark species well, and saw the shark come by their boat after the remains of the AJ at a distance of only a few feet they identi ed it as a white 14 to 15 feet long not the look-alike mako. George Burgess, director of shark research at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, checked the bites on the remains of the AJ and judged them to likely have come from a white the mako has teeth more designed for puncturing than shearing. Great whites, which Burgess said may be following and feeding on whales and their calves during winter migrations into Florida, do occasionally get caught here. Notable catches include a 16-footer estimated at more than 1,000 pounds, caught off Key Largo in 1997 and a 2,300-pounder caught off Key West in 1956. A white shark estimated at 2,000 pounds was caught, tagged and released by a conservation research group off Jacksonville early this month.White shark life historyLike many sharks, whites are born alive rather than hatching from eggs dropped by the mother, and reportedly one embryo often eats the others while still inside the womb, de nitely not helping this endangered species in the survival department. They take about 15 years to reach sexual maturity; they remain juveniles until theyre 12 to 14 feet long. Lifespan is thought to be about 30 years, maximum size up to 7,000 pounds and over 20 feet long. They have been protected by international treaty from harvest since 2004 under the CITES agreement which prohibits trade in endangered species. Biologists say white sharks do not hunt humans, but they take pretty much any large prey that presents itself, so swimming where theyre fairly common as along some parts of the California coast as well as southern Australia beaches can be somewhat risky. Here on the sugar sand of the Panhandle, not so much. Bull sharks are of course another matter, for another story.Great whites rare but a few show up here every winterPage 6 Wednesday, May 1, 2013

That might be the only thing approaching logic that ensues. The Atomics, who are endeared to this corner by their nickname alone, bounced Milton Central 11-1 last week for the District 1-1A championship. It was the rst district title won by the school, which has an address in Graceville but is located across the Jackson County line, since the 1983 girls basketball team. That aint exactly the Curse of the Bambino, but clearly the nuclear age has seemed to bypass this sparsely populated northeast section of Holmes County within a ground-rule double of the Alabama border. Perhaps the biggest upset of all is that Graceville, with 2,402 residents according to a recent population survey, has two public high schools located 5 miles apart using it as a mailing address. Or that a school such as Poplar Springs that offers only four sports at the varsity level boys and girls basketball, softball and baseball and boasts 85 students in grades 912 still is alive in the regional playoffs. But that doesnt de ne this group of athletes coached by Brad Hall, who have been building toward this moment last nights region semi nal game against visiting Chipley during the past three seasons. (Note: the game was played after press time Tuesday visit chipleypaper.com or bonifaynow.com to see the results). Poplar Springs was 9-1 in the district three years ago, Hall said, but lost in extra innings to Laurel Hill in the tournament semi nals. Last year was 8-2, and again the Atomics were denied by Laurel Hill, this time 1-0 in the championship game. They have compiled a 19-2 record thus far, one of the losses by one run to Chipley, behind freshmen pitchers Ashlyn Golden and Paige Smith. There only is one senior on the roster, so clearly this program appears poised to add a new page to the schools athletic history book, which at this point is more of a pamphlet. Poplar Springs won back-to-back state Class C titles in boys basketball under Herman Dodson in 1966 and 1967. Forgive the current enrollment of the school, totaling 330 students grades K-12, for not having that pedigree engrained into memory. Suf ce to say that for a group of teenagers 30 years between district titles is a very long dearth of success, twice a lifetime for some of these players. Junior catcher Savannah Ryken clearly is one of the team leaders, as is sophomore second baseman Joley Dixon. The difference between these athletes and those in higher classi cations is that many of Halls players have been on the varsity since their seventh-, eighthand ninth-grade years. Not surprisingly, what theyve already accomplished has created quite a buzz in the community. Hall said that the paid gate for the district championship was 212 spectators, and speculated that might double on Tuesday with Chipley located about 18 miles away. Bay County would have a dif cult time matching that. But then again, nothing about this Poplar Springs team is easily replicated. Hall said that some members of the community are getting a banner made to commemorate what has thus far been achieved. It is a tting tribute. And quite possibly, the start of something altogether even more lasting. By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com To the victor goes the spoils. And talent helps, too. The Gulf Coast softball team secured its rst Panhandle Conference softball title since 2006 this season and the success was noted on the leagues year-end teams released this week. Ollivia McLemore earned the conferences best pitcher honor, Emily Sanders is the player of the year and Susan Painter was named the top coach. Five Lady Commodores earned rst-team nods and four were on the second team. No GC player was named honorable mention. Its a tough conference and we had our share of talented players to compete against the other teams, Painter said. Any time you can get recognition for your players its a positive for the program. Second-place Chipola had six rstteamers and three players on each of the secondand honorable-mention teams. Third-place Northwest Florida State had 10 players on the three teams, including four rst-teamers. Fifth-place Pensacola had 11 players recognized and fourth-place Tallahassee only four, with two on the second team. McLemore and Sanders joined inelder Amanda Grimaldo, at-large utility player Anna Martin and pitcher Paige Caraway on the rst team. Out elders Katie White and Sian Colee, third baseman Brittany Wylie and catcher Mackenzie Arlt were second-teamers. Sanders, an Indian River transfer, surpassed the other four rst-team out elders in nearly every statistical category. She led all in elders in batting average (.432), hits (83), doubles (16), home runs (14) and RBIs (44) and was second only to Grimaldo in runs (46). Sanders anchored second base and lled in at shortstop for Grimaldo, who missed a few games with a nger injury. McLemore established herself as one of the conferences top pitchers as a freshman with 21 wins and 165 strikeouts. She improved on those numbers this season with a 26-10 record and 219 strikeouts in 218 1/3 innings pitched while also lowering her ERA to 1.38 after posting a 1.74 mark in 2012. She rebounded from a rough start in conference play, giving up 10 runs in 5 2/3 innings of two appearances against NWF State. She started 1-2 in Panhandle outings, but she won ve in a row, including earning the victorious decision in both games of doubleheaders against Tallahassee and NWF State to help the Lady Commodores build a rst-place lead they wouldnt relinquish. Caraway provided a complement to McLemore and grew stronger as the season progressed. She had 103 strikeouts to only 14 walks in 93 innings while posting a 9-3 record. Chipolas Eva Voortman and Sneads product Karissa Childs rounded out the rst-team pitchers. Voortman was 17-2 and nished 6-1 in conference starts and Childs was 10-6. Chipolas Hayley Parker, Kristen Allen, Stephanie Garrells and Mya Anderson also made the rst team. GC and Chipola will compete in the NJCAA Gulf District/FCSAA state tournament in Pensacola May 3-5. The winner of the Gulf District earns a berth in the national tournament. Were excited about the awards, Painter said. But we have to get back to work. District 2-1AHolmes County 4, Baker 0BAKER Holmes County junior left-hander Ty Russ saved his best for the playoffs. Russ (6-2) pitched his third no-hitter of the season Tuesday night, but this time he was perfect. The Blue Devil struck out 10 of the 21 batters he faced in the seven-inning District 2-1A semi nal. Holmes Countys Junior Miles was 1 for 2 with two runs scored, Russ 2-3 with a triple and two RBIs, Kodi Russ 1-3 with an RBI double and Jordan Worthing 1-3 with an RBI double. District 2-6ACrestview 3, Mosley 2CRESTVIEW Davis Champion went the distance on the mound for Crestview and Mosley couldnt nd the big hit against him in the district nal. Dakota Dean had a pair of hits and scored a run for the Bulldogs (21-5). Champion earned the win the hard way, scattering 11 Dolphin hits to go along with just four strikeouts. But Champion made the Mosley batters work to reach base as he didnt allow a walk. The Dolphins (24-3), the No. 1 Class 6A team in the state, looked as if they were going to make short work of things with four-consecutive one-out hits in the rst inning. But Mosley only got one run out of the threat as the inning ended on the rst double play. The Bulldogs tied things up in the third inning as Dean tripled and scored on a passed ball. Mosley strung together three more hits good for another run in the bottom of the fourth inning, but another double play snuffed out the threat. Crestview got back-toback doubles from Tate Sweatt and Roman Donofro to lead off the fth inning and tie the game up. A two-out single by Corey Armstrong scored Donofro with the game winning run. Mosley had a runner in scoring position in both the sixth and seventh innings, but Champion and the Bulldogs wouldnt be denied as they kept the Dolphins off the scoreboard to claim the win. Larry was 3 for 4, Clay Causey 2 for 3 and Brady Bell 2 for 4, while Joey Hair pitched ve innings for the loss. Andrew Deramo nished up for the Dolphins. District 4-1ALiberty County 4, Bozeman 0BRISTOL Bozeman faced Liberty County in the District 4-1A nal for the second straight year. And just like in 2012, the Bucks were the victims of a no-hitter. It was Hayden Swiers turn this year, as he had two strikeouts and three walks. Bozeman also had a batter reach on an error. The Bucks (17-9) had base runners on second and third in the rst inning and another on third in the fourth, but were unable to make a dent in the outcome. Liberty County scored two runs in each of the rst and sixth innings, each charged to starter and loser Reed Ruddick. He had three strikeouts and gave up ve hits. Brandon Suttles pitched to three batters without recording an out and Michael Cullen nished up for Bozeman. The Bucks will travel to the winner of Sneads-Vernon in the regional semi nal May 7. Bozeman also started on the road last season and advanced to the state semi nals before falling to Holmes County. Weve been on this side of it so hopefully we can draw on our experience, Bozeman coach Jeff Patton said. We need to nd some toughness with the bats, but well have a say. Well do better.

Rick Scott showed his appreciation for Floridas teachers and applauded their commitment to improving Floridas education system by presenting the Governors Shine Award to six 2013-14 District Teachers of the Year last week. Florida teachers are the hardest working teachers in the world and our students results demonstrate their success, said Scott. Thanks to Floridas great teachers, Florida students are competing and succeeding, both nationally and internationally, and thats why its so important we reward classroom teachers with a $2,500 pay raise. The six 2013-14 District Teachers of the Year winners invited to todays meeting come from Escambia, Jefferson, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Taylor and Walton counties. Every day you help Floridas students realize their potential, fulll their dreams and embark on challenging journeys toward college and successful careers, said Governor Scott to the teachers in attendance. Floridas strong, effective teachers give students an advantage in todays competitive environment. I am proud to present the Governors Shine Award to teachers who go above and beyond to make a difference in education. The participating 2013-14 District Teachers of the Year included: Susan Rigby, Escambia County, Pine Forest High School: Rigby has been teaching for 13 years and currently teaches ninth-grade mathematics at Pine Forest High School. Rigby attributes her passion for teaching to her students success in the classroom. My students see my passion for teaching every day. I believe in them. I care about them. This has changed their attitude about math and learning. They believe in themselves, Rigby said. Nicole Roddenberry, Jefferson County, Jefferson Elementary School: If a child cant learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn, is a saying rst-grade teacher Roddenberry holds close to her heart. My teaching style is one that is engaging, interactive and challenging. I implement differentiated instruction so that each student is challenged at their own level, Roddenberry said. Heather Erickson-Vaughn, Okaloosa County, Elliott Point Elementary School; Erickson-Vaughn has been teaching for eight years and is currently a kindergarten teacher at Elliot Point Elementary School, where she fosters an environment of love and respect in her classroom. In my classroom we love and respect each other and we never hold each other back. The encouragement and support that we all have for each other is what inspires my students to want to learn, said Erickson-Vaughn. Elizabeth Ann Thompson, Santa Rosa County, West Navarre Intermediate School: My students and I create a classroom family, said Thompson, who teaches third grade at Navarre Intermediate School. We respect differences and celebrate the successes of each individual in our family. We learn with each other and most importantly from each other. As my students learn to respect and support one another, they gain respect for themselves, Thompson said. Meridith Upshaw, Taylor County, Taylor County Elementary School: Upshaw has been teaching for eight years and currently teaches third grade at Taylor County Elementary School. She brings joy and laughter to her classroom and believes this environment encourages her students. I feel that through laughter bonds can be built that enables me to reach all learners. We learn to laugh at our mistakes and try again, Upshaw said. We offer support and encouragement to each other. We truly build a family and unique support system. Melissa DiCesare, Walton County, South Walton High School: DiCesare has been teaching for 15 years and is currently teaching AP English language arts to 11th and 12th grade students at South Walton High School. My students become intrinsically motivated because I consistently project my passion for literature and language each day, each class period, said DiCesare. Purposeful instruction combined with rigor in a highly efcient, welcoming environment is powerful. Rules and regulations are simultaneously followed because students are on task, motivated and condent, anticipating with zeal what is to come next, said DiCesare. Each of Floridas 67 school districts selects a Teacher of the Year, who is then considered for statewide recognition. The Florida Teacher of the Year is chosen from more than 180,000 public school teachers throughout the state by a selection committee representing teachers, principals, parents and the business community. Floridas top educator is selected on the basis of the superior ability to teach and communicate knowledge of the subject taught, professional development, philosophy of teaching, and outstanding school and community service. The most important qualication is the teachers ability to inspire a love of learning in students of all backgrounds and abilities. Scott presents Shine Awards

Florida Panhandle Team volunteers are sorting supplies and bags of items to give to the children of the families that they will minister to with the Water and Feeding Ministry. The team gives out beans and rice to the families in the poorer sections of Guaimaca, Honduras. Volunteers mix the concrete for the 11 oors they poured in eight houses. Before the missionaries arrived, the oors in the houses were dirt, and when it rained, it was very muddy.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY For almost 12 years David Lauen, associate pastor and minister of music of the First Baptist Church of Bonifay, has been leading mission trips to Honduras, but this year will be the biggest trip by far. Since 2001, weve been making trips to Honduras, and weve average between six to 30 volunteers. This time were taking 60, Lauen said. With a group from Marianna, weve got enough people to be known as the Florida Panhandle Team. One project they are in the process of completing is building a hospital, which is 10 years in the making. When we rst got started, it was a 50-foot by 100-foot hospital, then we added another 50-foot by 100-foot wing, and then Samaritans Purse donated thousands for four state of the art operating rooms, and it just keeps growing, Lauen said. Weve got over 26 surgical teams to donate their time and services. As the facility grows wonderful equipment is donated to ll it. Last year, they mixed and poured 11 concrete oors for eight houses. They were living on dirt oors and every time it rained they would have water running through the house, Lauen said. Now they can have dry oors. An ongoing mission is to bring clean water to the residents homes. Their water system is pathetic, like most third-world countries, he said. Were trying to lay out PVC pipes to put faucets at these houses. Last time, we were able to bring them a 10,000 gallon water tank to help supply clean water. He said even though it has been quite a bit of hard work, it was worth it. It is exciting, Lauen said. We take a lot for granted in this country and have a lot to be thankful for. This is a life changing trip for some. Lauen said the group will hold a fundraiser starting at 10:30 a.m. on May 10 on the Cooks Corner at the intersection of Highway 79 and Highway 90, where they will be selling rib-eye steak dinners for $10, which will include green beans, new potatoes, bread and cake. All proceeds will go to purchasing medical supplies for the Honduran hospital. The group will be leaving for Honduras on June 15. For more information, visit BMDMI.org.

Americans have been ingenious in turning something simple into a sport for everyone to enjoy. I must say I have enjoyed my share of sports. When younger, I was a baseball fan. I went to as many games as possible. The Stadium in Baltimore Maryland was just a few minutes from my house so I could visit it often, and I often did. I did not really care who won the game as long as it was a good game played, not to mention the hotdogs. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage accused me of going to ball games just to eat hotdogs. Whenever I would return from a ballgame the rst question would be, not who won the game but, How many hotdogs did you eat? If the truth was known, and you will not get it from me, many a hotdog sacri ced itself at a ballgame. After all, when you are watching a ballgame, who has time to keep track of how many hotdogs you are eating? I did have a moment of anxiety once when my wife threatened to weigh me before the game and then weigh me after the game to see if I had eaten too many hotdogs. When she rst mentioned it I laughed, but I noticed she was not laughing, which caused me some deep concern. Fortunately, for me it never got to that but came perilously close. Nothing is more relaxing on a Saturday afternoon than sitting in a ballpark watching a ballgame in progress. Somehow, all the cares of the world seem to utter away while watching the game. It all ended for me one summer. I had come into the house from some chore and my wife greeted me by saying, Do you know your ball team is on strike? I looked at her, laughed and said, I know. They get three strikes and then theyre out. Thats the way they play the game. I winked at her and laughed goodnaturedly. Finally, I said to her, youre coming to understand what the game is all about. No, you dont understand. Your team is on strike. I get you, and this Saturday Im going to go and watch them strike again. It took me a while but nally my wife got through the thickness of my skull and got me to understand the strike she was talking about was not the strike I was talking about. It is always nice when people are on the same page. In a marriage situation, the biggest challenge a couple has is staying on the same page. Even though the husband and wife might be reading the same book, for some reason wives have the ability to read three or four chapters ahead. When a husband tries to correct her she impatiently says, We were on that page last week. Try to keep up. Try as we might, it is a rare husband who can keep up. But we try. When I got up to the same page as my wife about the baseball team on strike, I was feeling rather low. What do you think about your baseball game now, she taunted. As it turned out, the baseball team was actually out on strike and if I remember correctly, we missed the whole season that year. They were on strike for, you will never guess, more money. Up to that point, I thought the players played because they loved the game. Boy was I on the wrong page with that. I went to games because I love the game and it did not matter to me who won or lost as long as it was a good game. Now, to nd out that my heroes, if you can call them such, were primarily interested in money was disheartening. I have never been able to watch a game since with the same excitement I did before. Why cant we just have fun? Why does life have to be such a battle? Why cant we have a baseball game just for the fun of it? Recently, I attended a baseball game at the local high school. I thought I would just go and enjoy the game. I did not know any of the players; I just wanted to enjoy the game. Then I met an unfamiliar phenomenon of high school baseball. Parents of baseball players! The game started as normal but soon the air exploded with shouting and yelling in the stands. I did not quite understand what all the noise was about at the time. Two women, imagine that, got in a st ght over the ballgame! They were mothers of two of the players on opposite teams. That was just the beginning of the shouting and the yelling that afternoon. As I walked away, I sadly shook my head and said to myself, Why cant we just have fun? I believe the Preacher in the book of Ecclesiastes explains it well. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit (Ecclesiastes 1:14 KJV). Some are so caught up in the vanity and vexations of life that they never know what it is like to just enjoy life. Why cant we just have a little bit of fun? Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.
