The board tasked County Attorney Jeff Goodman with writing a job description to bring to the board at their next meeting. “I understand that you want a county administrator but without the authority to hire and re,” Goodman said. “Someone who can coordinate between department heads and oversee public works but not with the full power of a county administrator. Basically it will be county coordinator and public works director.” Chairman Monty Merchant said he would like someone who would be willing go out to project sites to work. “I’m hoping he’s not a coat-andtie man,” Merchant said. “We need a man that can put on his boots and get to work out there.” Project Engineer Jack Elliott and a representative from the Department of Transportation gave an update on the progress being made to County Road 173 North. Elliott said very few tasks remain to nish the project, such as side drains and shoulders. “The south end looks better then the north end,” Commissioner Kenneth Williams said. “Will the north end be corrected before you leave? Also, how long can they hold people up, because I was out Gaetz: Panhandle ‘pathway of growth’ By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — Northwest Florida is positioned to be a leader in economic growth for the state, said Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville. “We’re in the position to be a pathway of growth for not just Northwest Florida, but the entire state, in the next 10 to 15 years,” Gaetz said. Gaetz was in Chipley on Tuesday for a “Neighborhood Day,” visiting local of cials and residents, starting with a visit to the Washington County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. He also set up shop at the county agricultural center to meet with residents, addressed the Kiwanis Club and met with Northwest Florida Community Hospital administration to By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Victim advocate Nancy Williams spoke with the Bonifay Kiwanis Club about the importance of victim advocacy during the club’s June 12 meeting. “I met Williams in 2010 after her daughter, Mia Chay Brown, was abducted and murdered,” Assistant State Attorney Brandon Young said. “She volunteered with our of ce shortly afterward, and in December of last year, we hired her as a victim advocate.” Williams began by quoting Nelson Mandela. “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children,” Williams said. “We make choices in who we want to be and how we move forward. One of the things we’ve set up as a part of the healing process is (to) establish a legacy for Mia by helping others through a Mia Chay Brown Scholarship, which is only available at Bethlehem High School.” The scholarship awards $1,000 to a senior who writes an essay explaining the goals they have and what they’ve done to better their community. “I hope and pray that by doing this we are helping other young people go forward in their community and in their own lives,” Williams said. “That they make positive changes, not only in their lives but in the life blood of the community.” She said it was her experience with tragedy that made her decide to become a victim advocate.

This has filled a need within me to give back to the community that had done so much for us.” She thanked the local law enforcement agencies and state attorney’s office for all they have done for her family. “It was a horrible expe rience, but with the help of those agencies, the support of the community and the Lord above, we were able to move forward,” Williams said. “In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, ‘You may never know what re sults come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.’ Thank you for your time, and God bless.” BOCC from page A1 CORRECTION P o O L ic IC Y Coleman S.

He was elect ed to the Senate in 2006 after six years as superintendent of schools in Okaloosa County. His senate district includes Okaloo sa, Walton, Washington, Holmes, Jackson and Bay counties. When the senate district boundaries were redrawn, Gaetz inherited Holmes, Jackson and Washington Counties. “I won the redistricting lottery,” Gaetz said. “I grew up in the rural Midwest, and this is where I feel more at home, more than anywhere else in Florida.” A resident of Niceville, he said the economy in Niceville is tied to the military bases, tourism and the hospitality industry. Though having a strong economic factor such as a military base can be a blessing for a community, if the base is shut down, then the com munity is severely affected. “Every time Washington gets a cold, we wind up with pneu monia,” Gaetz said. Sequestra tion has resulted in hundreds of furloughs for employees of the military bases, which will affect those surrounding communities. Tourism is also an industry that is subject to downturns. “If you have a lot of people drown, or someone sees a shark, that can have a huge negative impact,” Gaetz said. Northwest Florida, however, is poised to be a center of indus trial growth, he said, given the opportunity. “If you are looking to relocate your company, or your family, Northwest Florida has a lot to of fer,” Gaetz said. “Taxes are low er here than in other parts of the state, as are living expenses.” Area schools are good, and getting better, Gaetz said, and the recently enacted Career And Professional Education (CAPE) Act was designed to give Florida high school graduates a “diplo ma that has career currency in the workplace.” Half of college and university graduates under 25 are unem ployed or underemployed, Gaetz said. And having a high school diploma alone does not mean a student is qualied to get a job. “This started when I was superintendent of the Okaloosa Schools, where we began the CHOICE Institutes,” Gaetz said. Since then, he has worked to “lash our education system to the realities and opportunities of the economy.” Degree programs and high school studies need to prepare students for the real economy, and the CAPE Act will pay school districts $750 per middle school or high school student who receives an industrial certi cation while they are attending school. “If Washington County School District does the same thing next year that they did this year, then under the CAPE Act, the district would receive an addi tional $300,000,” Gaetz said. Having students who are jobready upon graduation is also essential for future growth, not only in Northwest Florida, but throughout the state. Student education is key to attracting employers, especially employers on the scale of a Nissan, BMW or Toyota plant, such as Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina have landed in recent years. Florida has been in competi tion for such facilities, and plans are underway for a megasite — an industrial site dedicated for use by a big employer such as an auto plant — to be located in Jackson County. “My son, Matt, went on his own to one of these companies and asked why they chose South Carolina over Florida,” Gaetz said, referring to State Rep. Matt Gaetz of Fort Walton. “They were told by South Carolina that whatever community they locat ed in, the state guaranteed that when the local graduates would walk across the stage to receive their diplomas, they would be qualied to go to work at that plant with no further training.” Gaetz said colleges and uni versities also should start incor porating industry certications into their training courses for students. “We want our students to graduate with a degree or a di ploma that gives them some real career currency,” Gaetz said. there for 22 minutes for almost 3 miles between barricades.” Elliott assured him the north end would be “polished up” before workers leave, and the maximum allowed space for barricades is 2 miles. “If it’s more than that, we need to correct it immediately,” Elliott said. The project has a tentative completion date of Nov. 15, he said, which could be extended because of weather. Resident JoAnn Cooey dis cussed drainage issues on her road. “Carmichael Road has drainage problems,” she said. “In some areas it is impass able, and the rest is just in bad shape. Last time we discussed this, the board said they would send an engineer out. Did you?” County Engineer Whitney Nelson from Melvin Engineer ing told the board he did go out, plans were drawn and he met with a foreman, but work was never done. The board agreed to allow Nelson to meet with the fore man again and see that the project moves forward. Holmes County State Hous ing Initiatives Partnership Administrator Kathy Ahlen told the board Gov. Rick Scott agreed to fund the State Hous ing Initiatives Program in August. SHIP provides funds to local governments as an incentive to create partnerships that pro duce and preserve affordable homeownership and multifam ily housing. The program was designed to serve very low, low and moderate income families. The board agreed to a threeyear extended contract with SHIP with the option of can celing with a minimum 60-day notice. Commissioner Bobby Sas nett told the board he was down to two employees on his road and bridge crew, and the board approved of creating a temporary, six-month position and to advertise it. After much discussion, the board approved of allowing Cat erpillar to x one of Sasnett’s graders for $12,962.86. Sasnett said it had no brakes and that the turntable needed to be overhauled. Caterpillar estimated a two-week period to repair it. “Park it and see if they will lend you a piece of equipment until the work is done,” Mer chant said. Merchant told the board he met with the Department of Transportation in regard to repairing County Road 2 from County Road 82 to the Walton County line. “There’s a small portion, about a 2-mile distance, that is being left out,” Merchant said. “I’ve talked with DOT, and there may be a way to get fund ing for that stretch of road.” The board approved post poning the awarding of the bid until they hear from DOT. “I’ve also heard there are some negative comments com ing from board members,” Merchant said. “Comments about other commissioners and about how they will and will not do certain things. I am not so naive to think that em ployees won’t talk about our commissioners, but it is about time that we look at employees to do their job and stop blaming commissioners for work not be ing done.” Merchant also suggested they have a budget workshop soon. “There’s a lot of expenses coming down that we’ve got to be prepared for,” Merchant said. “Like the increase for re tirement. Where they want us to pay for it in full, which would be almost a quarter of a million dollar increase.” Goodman also said Wash ington County was facing a 10 to 20 percent increase in health insurance because of Obam acare and that Holmes County shouldn’t overlook the same possibility. The next scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners is set for 6 p.m. June 25 at the BOCC boardroom, behind the Holmes County Courthouse. GAETZ from page A1

I appreciate every one of you, and I am going to miss you all, Riley said to the council. She has worked for the town for 17 years. The council will need to vote in July to advertise the position, then interview in August, Riley said. I would like to be a part of the selection process, if I can. Lets plan on doing the interviewing at the Aug. 8 meeting, Mayor BJ Phil lips said. We are certainly going to miss you, Phillips said. Every time I need some information, I can always call Margaret, and she knows what to do. The council voted to ac cept her resignation. Plan on keeping your phone handy after you leave, Phillips joked with Riley. I suspect youll be getting some calls from us asking for help. Member Kerry Col lins reported WashingtonHolmes Technical Center students would build a new stage runway for the Possum Palace for $1,200. Wed like to try and get it done before Fun Day. The 44th annual Possum Festi val will take place on Aug. 3. The plans are for the students to build a runway that has wheels and can be stored under the stage, Collins said. The council approved paying the WHTC stu dents to make the stage improvements. Collins also mentioned people have been hanging out around Wausau Town Hall at all hours of the night to use the librarys free wireless Internet. Theyve been parking here in the alley or sitting out here by the building at all hours of the night, Col lins said. Phillips said he found one person using the Town Halls electrical outlets to power his computer as well as to use the Internet. I asked him if he would like it if I ran an extension cord to his house to run my appliances, Phillips said. If this keeps up, it wont be long until we start hav ing issues with vandalism, Collins said. Phillips said he would talk to the library staff and see if the Internet could be turned off when the library is closed. There has to be a way to just shut it off, Phillips said. I dont mind people using the thing but it is get ting out of hand. Resident Ruth Neigh bors asked the council to look into getting her neighborhood cleaned up. Theres a big pecan tree in that alley that, if a hurri cane comes, is going to fall on my house. Neighbors said she looked into having the tree removed, but since it is not on her property she could not have it cut down. Another nearby property has an abandoned and condemned mobile home parked on it, and Neigh bors said she would like to see that property cleaned up as well. Phillips said the council would look into the mat ter and see what could be done.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com Wednesday, xxx xx, 2013 A Page 4 Section Should the writer tried hard to select an activity to keep him busy after retiring as county judge in 1992, it is doubtful that he would have ever chosen writing a newspaper column. Between 1992 and 2003, he was kept busy with the duties of the watermelon festival, which was experiencing a growth spurt and with the constitution and care of Chipley Chapel Primitive Baptist Congregation in which he was a founding member. In April 2003, the former owners of the Washington County News suggested a weekly column, using as a topic the many careers of Perry Wells. It seemed like an interesting idea. Looking back, I think my real feelings were that such an endeavor would last only a few weeks! Along the way, and with the newspapers blessings, featured articles, in addition to the regular Perrys Prattle, were added to my writings. It was my honor and privilege to write articles on several leading Washington County citizens after their death. These include Tillman Pippin, Hubert Cope, Rex T. Yates, former Washington County Judge, Willis Carl Trawick, Rev. Adolph Phares and the founders of R & M Electric Shop, Nolan McDaniel and J. T. Rustin. Some of the topics were on the life and experiences of several businesses and individuals. Included in these, was Frances Hays, a Chipley Barber, who is following in the footsteps of his father, Oscar Hayes, and his uncle, Lem Hayes. longtime career barbers. For years, Harvey Hayes followed the barber profession, along with his brother, before pursuing other employment. Many of my features were written on topics which have interesting connotation. One such story was on the patent medicine, Hadacol, which many well remember. Another topic was the telephone directory in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, where nicknames were used in the names. Among the highlights of my special writing was reporting on the funeral of Martha Jean Cooper Chasse, who was interred in Washington Countys most historic cemeteries, on Sept. 8, 2008, the rst burial there since James Willis Taylor was entombed Jan. 6, 1957. Mr. Clark Rogers told me that, as a school bus driver for the county, he delivered a bus load of friends, relatives and neighbors toMr. Taylors funeral to the serene cemetery, located in what old timers still refer to as Moodys Pasture. My interest in old country, gospel, bluegrass and traditional music, brought a commitment that I write stories on the wellknown performer in that category as they have passed away. I know that I am not recalling all the articles written in every category. Those I readily recall were Hank Locklin, Don Helms (of the famed Hank Williams Band), Miss Kitty Wells, and later her husband, Johnny Wright, Folk Music Legend, Doc Watson and Wilma Lee Cooper of Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper fame. On Sept. 7, it was my sad duty to report the deaths of two music stars who performed concerts at the May 22, 1982 Railroad Centennial Celebration. They were Dr. Bill Foster of the Foster String Band from Florence, Alabama and Oscar Sullivan, of the Lonzo and Oscar Band out of Nashville. Among the veteran tributes, it has been my privilege to write a special feature article on my uncle, James Archie Harris. Bethel Primitive Baptist Church honored him with a special tribute on October 11, 2003 in a ceremony formulated by Merrill T. (Tom) Beasley, LTC, Inf, FARNG, Retired, the late Pat Davis and your writer. Col. Beasley narrated the major battle campaigns of Harris, including North Africa and Anzio Beach. He also outlined a host of Awards, including The Purple Heart at Anzio, along with the Silver Star and Bronze Star honors. On Aug. 4, 2007, the opportunity came to feature a second World War II veteran and highly decorated hero, John Julius Fussell. I vividly recall sitting with him in the spacious and comfortable sales shelter on the Fussell Farm where he calmly and methodically outlined his U. S. Army experiences paralleling the travels of Archie Harris. Fussell received combat injuries at Anzio Beach and again at Po River in Italy. He was highly decorated with numerous awards, Combat Citations and ribbons for his honored service. John Julius Fussell passed away June 3 at the age of 93 while surrounded by his loving family. Funeral services were conducted at Piney Grove Free Will Baptist Church on June 5 with throngs attending the funeral conducted by Rev. Alan English and the pastor, Rev. Tim Owen. Imagine the writers surprise and excitement when Rev. Owen immediately stated he would be basing many of his remarks on Judge Wells article in the newspaper in 2007 entitled John Julius Fussell quali es as one of The Greatest Generation. He proceeded to quote much of contents of this book by Tom Brokaw, published in 1999. Your writer was again humbled in Rev. Owen making special reference to my story, where I wrote: Had Tom Brokaw, the international known journalist and newscaster, chosen to use Washington County as the setting for his book, he would have looked no further than the life of John Julius Fussell, as one of the many featured heros named in his beautiful World War II stories. Rev. English also referred to the deceased as numbering among The Greatest Generation, commenting, sadly it is a generation that is fast becoming extinct. Please allow me to continue to think that my path of writing for the past ten years is surely the Providential Hand of God directing my efforts. I have been more than compensated for my endeavors in ways other than in a pay check. 86 year old, Cecil Pippin, added to that pay day when he told me at Julius funeral his blessing in reading my article on his friend, J. C. Grif n, who passed away earlier this year. See you all next week. Two ladies who contributed greatly to the publication of the Heritage of Holmes County book which was published in 2006 have recently passed away. This past week Mrs. Hazel Pierce Helms Maringer died after a long battle with Alzheimers disease. Even though the beginning stages of the malady had already begun its work, Mrs. Maringer was the catalyst for the publication of Holmes Countys only family history. When she learned that Heritage Publishing Companys owner, David Bice, was attempting to get a committee together for the purpose of collecting and assembling family stories which would be published in a volume available to the public, Mrs. Maringer called the publisher, arranged for a meeting with the Holmes County Historical Society and the process began. Many current and former county residents contributed to the work by submitting their family stories, but the book would never have been a reality, had not Mrs. Hazel Maringer arranged that rst meeting. Hazel Maringer was also responsible for securing the Florida style home which was moved from the New Hope community to Bonifay to serve as the Historical Societys museum. In addition to Mrs. Maringer who served as chairman of the Heritage book committee, others who served on the committee were were Pat Andrews, James and Mildred Williams, Nancy Thomas, and six retired educators, John Brownell, Dot Galloway, Helen Galloway, Nadine Hall, Shirlene Lashley, and Hazel Tison. Helen Commander Galloway also passed away recently. Her work in researching and writing the report on the schools for the Heritage History of Holmes County was invaluable. Mrs. Galloway was a beloved home economics teacher at Bethlehem and Ponce de Leon. She began teaching at Bethlehem two years after my husband went there as agriculture teacher and they worked together until he moved to Holmes County High School in 1964. Helen moved to her alma mater, Ponce de Leon in 1976 where she remained until retirement in 1981. Through the years as we have attended BHS school and class reunions with Bill and Helen, the love that her former students have for her attests to the kind of teacher she was. She received the Distinguished Service Award from the Florida Future Homemakers of America during her career. She and her students brought numerous honors to Bethlehem High School. I get inquires about the availability of the Heritage History of Holmes County. During June, the Publisher, Heritage Publishing has books for sale for a limited time for a price of $45 plus shipping. At the present time there are none available in the county, but the Holmes County Historical Society is in the process of securing copies and placing them in locations for the public to buy. They will then return to the prepublication price of something like $65. The Holmes County Historical Society is also planning a tag sale/ yard sale with a silent auction on Saturday July 13 from 9 a.m. till 1 p.m. at the Historical Society Building at 412 W. Kansas Ave. If you have items to donate, contact LaVonne Tardif, the treasurer, at 547-7328. On that date, the museum will be open for visitors. Also on the rst Saturday of each month from July through October, the museum will be open from 9 till 12 A.M. With deep appreciation, the Historical Society recognizes the importance of the contributions of Mrs. Hazel Maringer and Mrs. Helen Galloway in preserving the history of our county. Citizens are urged to get involved with the organization which is working tirelessly to collect the history of our county. They have secured and maintain a building for housing these artifacts. The president is Sue Brown and Buford Williams is secretary. The next meeting is July 11 at 4 p.m. Love of community keeps columnist busy PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells AP Staff Sgt.

Spears explained during the Tuesdays town council meeting that the town received two grants of $20,000 to build Hodges and Sellers Park in Caryville in 2010. This was before my time but as I understand it one of the parks went over budget, said Spears. However, the town had paid off the over amount, which was quit a bit over $20,000. This bill says that the town owes a principle amount of $16,510 but fails to provide documentation, which is why I strongly advise the town dispute the bill. Supervisor of Caryville Flea Market Paron Beeco came before the Caryville Town Council to give an update on prep arations for the next Flea Across Florida, which will be held in September. Well have live entertainment coming out for the event, said Beeco. The band is called Straight Shooter and theyre pretty good. Weve also got promotional items going out like ball caps, pens and calendars to promote the ea market and I must say everythings looking real good. Beeco also said that there would be additional work done to the ea market, such as repairing and repainting tables. Make a list of what you need and well provide the parts and labor, said Council Member Millard French. We can really use the inmate labor to help make that place presentable. Council Member Jim Taylor informed the council that The First Baptist Church of Bonifay was interested in purchasing the old work camp for a rehabilitation facility. Those services are really needed in this area, said Tay lor. If you want help from drug and alcohol addictions in a work oriented facility youve got to go all the way to South Florida. Plus the town could really use the water and sewer as additional income; so Im all for it. The next scheduled meeting for the Town of Caryville is set for 6 p.m. on July 9 at the Caryville Town Hall.

I don’t see how a man can make a living shing. In the 1960s, when there were no laws concerning the numbers of sh a boat could catch or the seasons a man could sh, it was a hard way to make a living. I realize if something had not been done and laws weren’t established we probably wouldn’t have any sh left to catch. It seems that some of these laws were a little stringent and some don’t seem necessary, but we have them all the same. Trigger sh regulations are an example. There hardly is a spot you can go in the Gulf that trigger sh won’t eat everything you put down for snapper. They come to the surface there are so many. You might think there is no way we could sh them out, but we thought the same about snapper in the 1960s and we almost managed to do that. Most boat captains today have found it almost is impossible to own a big vessel with all the expenses that come with it and such a short season to sh. Some boat captains were going out of business before sh regulations and shortened seasons were put in place. Now try and run a business in 28 days. It’s impossible. That is why a lot of captains are going to smaller boats that carry four or less passengers. I try to feature some of these guys every so often. One such captain is Jeff Gager. Jeff spent 20-plus years working for the FWC, or the Marine Patrol as it was rst called. When Jeff rst indicated to me he wanted to go into the guide business I was a little skeptical. Jeff knew every law on the books and could identify almost every kind of sh in the Gulf, but his saltwater shing abilities were a little lacking. Wanting to help him in any way I could, I gave him some numbers that I had caught sh on and he started with them and numbers some of his friends gave him. It wasn’t long before he was catching sh like gangbusters. Now he has more snapper spots than he could sh in a lifetime. He is hard working and very personable. If I had a group of kids or was going on a family trip, Capt. Jeff Gager is the guy I would choose. If you have a party of four or less and want to have an enjoyable trip in the Gulf and catch some sh, give Jeff a call at 5279730. His specialty is gag grouper, that season coming in July 1. He also has some pretty good snapper holes, I know because I gave them to him. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net LAKELAND (AP) — After listening to more than 100 emotional opinions, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission this week voted to move forward with a controversial proposal to modify the type of gear used to catch tarpon statewide. They also made tarpon a catch and release sh for the rst time. The FWC’s proposed rule, passed by a 4-3 vote, would prohibit gear rigged with bottom weights — a technique that is notorious for catching tarpon, even if they are not feeding. Tarpons, also known as “silver kings,” can grow up to 8 feet and weigh more than 300 pounds and are prized by shermen because they jump and ght when snagged. In Boca Grande Pass, the largest and most proli c tarpon nursery in the world, the hotly debated issue is whether illegal snagging occurs in during the Professional Tarpon Tournament Series’ annual round of tournaments. Conservationists claim that PTTS is responsible for many dead silver kings washing up on beaches during their contests. Several speakers told the seven-member panel the disagreements have degenerated to threats, intimidation and harassment. The Save the Tarpon organization asserted that PTTS’ reality TV show is the motivation behind the use of the ossing method that allows trophy sh to consistently be caught. The TV show has an audience of 44 million viewers, according to PTTS claims. A lawyer for PTTS speaking at the public hearing threatened the commission with a lawsuit if it passed the proposed changes to the gear. The Boca Grande Chamber of Commerce director Lew Hastings, a proponent of changes that may conserve the shery, told the panel that the business community supports FWC’s draft proposal. Hastings said the shery can collapse if not protected and that would bring economic devastation to his small island community. Hasting’s fear might have some basis. Half a century ago, the tarpon shery did just that in Port Aransas, Texas, a small town that built its fortune on the silver kings and lost it when the shery collapsed because of runoff pollutants. The town once known as Tarpon, Texas, is actively trying to restore the tarpon habitat. Dave Markett, a long-time fishing guide who works Boca Grande Pass, called the acrimony that has destroyed lifelong friendships “a modern day tragedy.” “There is no scientific evidence that this gear causes snagging,” he told the panel. “There is no biological issue with tarpons. No tragedy will happen today or tomorrow if you do a study.” He urged the commissioners to table the proposal or to vote it down. Several long-time fishermen told the regulators that numbers of tarpon have declined. They expressed serious concern that without action on the part of FWC, the tarpon will be driven away. Charter captain Mark Futch of Boca Grande related to the panel that he invented the bottom-weighted circle hook that is currently used by members of the PTTS tourney to snag tarpon. He says he and fellow anglers quit using it years ago when they saw the resulting carnage washing up on local beaches. He told the commissioners the snagging gear kills tarpon and harms the vulnerable fishery. Celebrities who have lent sponsorship in the past to the PTTS include revered illustrator Guy Harvey and New York Times best-selling author and former fishing guide Randy Wayne White. Both have publicly reversed their stance and supported the FWC’s proposed restrictions. The scientist in charge of the Tarpon and Bonefish Trust, Dr. Aaron Adams, also called on the FWC to protect the unique tarpon resource. In explaining the FWC’s decision to move the draft rule forward, chairman Kenneth Wright said, “As a legal matter, we don’t have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt with scientific certainty that it’s snagging fish. We’d be studying this to death. I think we have compelling evidence of the need for the rule.” Commissioner Ronald Bergeron dissented. He said he did not have enough scientific evidence to prove the gear is harmful. He said he will request further information before the final passage of the proposed rule is taken up in Pensacola in September. The commission voted unanimously to make both bonefish and tarpon catch and release only. Possession of a single tarpon will be allowed only when in pursuit of an International Game Fish Association record. Tarpon 40 inches or more must stay in the water at all times. FWC staff determined that larger fish are harmed if withdrawn from the supporting waters. The PTTS and other tournament organizers have recently adopted a calculation of weight based on measurements that can be taken with the fish in the water, but the new rule will be now applied across the state. Bonefish will not be allowed to be weighed and must be returned to the water with as little harm as possible. Neither sh is considered edible. New tarpon rules approved TARPON FACTS AND FIGURES • Fossil research shows tarpon have been swimming in our oceans since prehistoric times. • The life span of a tarpon can be in excess of 50 years. The oldest tarpon in captivity lived to be 63 years old. • Because of its majestic appearance of size and color, the tarpon is nicknamed “silver king.” • Tarpon are primarily found in shallow coastal waters and estuaries, but they also are found in open marine waters, around coral reefs, and in some freshwater lakes and rivers. •Tarpon range from Virginia to central Brazil in the western Atlantic, along the coast of Africa in the eastern Atlantic, and all through the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. • Because of its strength, stamina and ghting ability, the tarpon is one of Florida’s premier game sh. • Tarpon have a special ability to gulp air at the surface when they are in a habitat that doesn’t provide enough oxygen.

Page 7 Wednesday, June 19, 2013 From Staff Reports PANAMA CITY — The time is now for area football players to improve as athletes and as people. Bay County will be home to C.H.A.M.P. Camp starting next week. The camp has a mission to affect the lives of the clinics’ participants and will focus on fundamental skills, but players can expect guidance in areas off the eld as well. The C.H.A.M.P. Camp, created by Campbellton native and Denver Broncos assistant director of pro personnel Anthony “Champ” Kelly, is slated for June 28-29 at Bozeman. Kelly’s camp is a xture in the area and previously was hosted in Graceville. Kelly moved the camp, which is free to all participants, to Bozeman this year in hopes of drawing in players from Bay, Jackson, Washington and Holmes counties. The C.H.A.M.P. Camp is a non-contact clinic, and kids ages 10-17 are invited to participate. Younger players will work on fundamentals, and older, more experienced players will receive more extensive training. Professional and college athletes will be on hand to provide instruction. Admission is free. Kelly overcame his own struggles early in life and played football collegiately at the University of Kentucky. He has progressed up the front of ce ladder in Denver since joining the Broncos as a scout in 2007. Sharing life advice is a cornerstone of his camp, and anyone interested in participating can visit heartpowerinc.org. By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com LYNN HAVEN — Like Henry Ford producing the world’s rst automobiles with an assembly line of his creation, Gymnastics Plus is churning out college athletes with its own remarkable ef ciency. Rose Piorkowski, a 15-yearold gymnast at Gymnastics Plus and junior-to-be at Mosley, has committed to Boise State University as part of the Broncos’ 2015 recruiting class. She is the fourth Gymnastics Plus member to attract a college scholarship in the past few years. Athletes in most sports wait until their senior year before the recruitment process ramps up to its full intensity, but gymnastics coaches at the college level aren’t waiting around. Piorkowski hadn’t even nished her sophomore year at Mosley before Boise State’s coaches had an offer on the table. “It’s kind of tough to be at such a young age and decide where to go,” Piorkowski said. “But now I don’t have to worry anymore. I know where I’m going to college.” Piorkowski said her father is in the Air Force, and her family “has moved every three years.” She said she has lived in California, Kansas, Texas and Florida, so she may be better prepared than most teenagers to live on the other side of the country from her immediate family. “Then again,” she said, “it is 3,000 miles away. But I’ll have my team there. It’s like you get automatic friends in a way.” Piorkowski placed second all-around in her Level 10 group at the state championships in March, and she was 21st overall in the Region 8 Championships a month later, an effort that included a second-place nish on the vault. Gymnastics Plus coach Steve Arkell said that Piorkowski is good enough on the vault and oor right now that she could contribute on Boise State’s team in those disciplines. Piorkowski said that she needs work on the uneven bars if she wants to compete all-around for the Broncos. “Bars is the biggest thing I have to improve,” she said. “I don’t particularly care for the bars. The bars are where I have the biggest mental block. I’d much rather be tumbling and make sure my feet can hit the ground. … I have to improve on the bars if I want to make their lineup.” With her college choice nalized, Piorkowski said she won’t simply relax for the next two years. She said she has to stay in shape and add new skills. “Their coach said he was going to come out every couple months and see how I’m doing,” Piorkowski said. “I have to make sure I’m living up to their expectations.” Piorkowski follows in the footsteps of three former and current Gymnastics Plus teammates who have committed to NCAA Division I gymnastics programs. Alie Glover is at the University of Iowa, and current Gymnastics Plus gymnast Nikki Youd will join her on the Hawkeye roster in 2014. Another Gymnastics Plus alum, Chelsey Baker, is competing at Alaska-Anchorage. “We train long hours and we train hard,” Piorkowski said. “We’re all working, and we’re all dedicated. Steve and Sue (Arkell) have turned this program around. They’re such good coaches.” By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — In spite of the raging heat, a dozen teams showed up to compete in The WashingtonHolmes Domestic Violence Task Force’s co-ed softball tournament on June 15 to raise money to build a shelter for battered women and their children. “We’re raising money because there isn’t a shelter within a 100 miles for a woman and her children to escape an abusive relationship,” said Missy Sword Lee, Family Intervention Program Supervisor with Habilitative Services of Northwest Florida. “It’s bad enough that they’ve found themselves in a harmful relationship, they don’t need to pack up their things, quit their jobs, pull their kids out of school and have to move all the way to Panama City to nd assistance.” The 12 teams that participated were Taylor Chiropractic, Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce, Children’s Advocacy Center partnered with Bay County Sheriff’s Of ce, Department of Children and Families, LMC/Anchorage/BBCBC, three teams from First Free Will Baptist Church, Bonifay Athletic Club, Florida Highway Patrol, Alicia Brininger and the Bombers and Joel Patrick and the Seam Splitters. “The Rev. Luther Farmer of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, whose daughter was involved in domestic violence years ago and was murdered as a result, said the opening prayer,” Lee said. “Cody Boyette sang the National Anthem and Judge Colby Peel threw the opening pitch to Jake Zauner. A big thank you to Guy Lane and the city of Chipley for letting us use Pal’s Park.” First place went to Joel Patrick and the Seam Splitters, second place went to Chris Ellis and the Florida Highway Patrol, third place went to Dr. Mark Taylor and Taylor Chiropractic and fourth place went to Johnny Slay and Bonifay Athletic Club. “The community donated some of the food, all of the prizes and several cash donations including a very generous donation of $400 from Holmes County Teen Court,” said Lee. “Several students from Washington County and Holmes County schools earned community service hours by working in the concession stand and umpiring games/keeping score. Bonifay Chief of police Chris Wells also helped umpire several games.” She said there were a lot of donated items to raf e to help raise money for the cause. “Nicole Everson photography donated a photo session package valued at $600 and Trinity Martial Arts donated $500 worth of martial arts and cage tness classes,” said Lee. “We were able to auction off items from Little Obsessions Boutique, The Silver Door, Southern Comfort Gift Boutique and Dashing Designs by Clarissa Moore.” The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force holds a regular meeting the second Thursday of every month, alternating between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center. The next meeting will be at 6 p.m. on July 11 at the WashingtonHolmes Technical Center’s Student Commons. In September they will visit Washington and Holmes County’s Board of County Commissioners with a proclamation acknowledging September as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In October, they will hold a walk/vigil and a concert in memory of loved ones who have been affected by domestic violence. Lee also said that she is looking for anyone who would donate their house or facility as a shelter, explaining that they could receive no state funding until the shelter was successfully up and running for one year. “We’re a 501(c)3 not for pro t organization and any donation is tax deductible,” Lee said. “If there was someone that could be so kind as to donate their empty home for a shelter it would be a tremendous blessing.” For more information, contact Lee at 850-596-3288, WashingtonHolmesDVtaskforce@yahoo.com or P.O.

Trivia Fun Wilson Casey WC@Trivia Guy.com Special to Extra Bonifay Middle Schools Home Economic enrichm ent class held its fourth quilt show for the students and their families. There were 65 quilts on display, all made by the students and BMS home economics teacher Donna Rhodes. The Home Economics class has been very busy since the middle of January, work on these charity quilts. There were over 100 parents, grandparents as well as siblings of the quilters present to see the work of these students. The quilts have been made for Quilts for Kids a charity that gives quilts to children who are in the hospital or have been through a life threatening illness. Students voluntarily help sew and put together these quilts. The quilts will soon be donated to a Childrens Miracle Network Hospital. This project gives students an opportunity to learn and use their talents and abilities in a rewarding way. The hospital the quilts are going to allows direct delivery, which means the quilts are given to the hands of the child. It is very rewarding to see the smiles on their faces as they receive a quilt. Some of the medical situations are hard on your heart, but you know that you are giving comfort to a child and parents. The emotions with each delivery can be overwhelming. However, I nd good in each visit, Rhodes said During the quilt show, a slide show was played of students working on their quilt with a picture of each student holding their nished product proudly. Students were given a certi cate for their services and a picture of themselves with their quilt. Recognition was given to 10 students who showed special sewing machine skills. They received a special certi cate for learning and working with the sewing machine properly. This year, a special award, The Gold Thimble Award, was given to an eighth grade student who showed special skills and a good hardworking attitude. The award was given to Katie Tate. The quilt she completed this semester was Katies third quilt that she has made while in home economics. The students also gave a quilt to a young girl from Cottondale that has been through a life threatening illness. Her name is Julie Mayo, and she is 5 years old. One of the quilters, Shauni Hooper, met Julie in the hospital in Birmingham, Ala., while she went through a medical issue. Shauni presented Julie the quilt she made. The quilt was a Princess and the Frog theme. Bonifay Middle School will accept donations of new, brightly colored, kid-friendly, 100 percent cotton fabric. If interested in donating, bring items to the school. For more information about this organization, go to www. quiltsforkids.org.

Lunch was provided by the students of the culinary program at the Technical Center. Key Club Liaison Mem ber Garrett Martin present ed a check to Belinda Collins for her service as the faculty advisor for the Chipley High School Key Club. Jennifer Grifn and Donna Meldon of the Cove nant Hospice presented the program. Grifn noted the purpose of hospice care is to put more life in your days when you cant put more days in your life. She went on to say Covenant Hospice provides a huge amount of indigent care. The Garden Gala, which they promote in Marianna, is now in its eighth year. The Garden Gala pro vides funds to support indi gent care. Local artists paint furniture items, which are auctioned off. There is also a silent auction. The painted garden items include six-foot benches, swings and chairs. The preview of these items is to be held Thursday at the Marianna Ofce. The Gala has raised $56,000-60,000 annually. Grifn said $10 pays for one day of medical equip ment while $100 will send one child to Camp Monarch at Pinnacle Point. The camp is held to help bereaved chil dren deal with the loss of loved ones. Grifns job is fundrais ing for Covenant Hospice, including special events. On June 22, there will be a special dinner featuring the Moonliters, a 16-piece jazz band. A highlight of the event will be a harpist who will perform. The cost is $60 per person or $100 per couple. Donna Meldon discussed the Volunteer Program. In the four-county area, there are more than 300 volun teers. They drove more than 4,000 miles last year and pro vided more than 8,300 volun teer hours. This included 5,000 hours of patient care and 3,000 hours of outreach and fundraising. In order to be a volunteer, the person must be screened with a Level II background check. The Marianna ofce of Covenant Hospice covers Jackson, Holmes and Wash ington counties. The Kiwanis club meets Tuesdays at Patillos Res taurant in the middle of the WHTC campus at noon. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or David Solger, membership chairperson, at 638-1276. CHIPLEY The Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon at Pattillos Restaurant at the Washing ton Holmes Technical Center, on June 4. Lunch was provided by the students of the culinary program at the Technical Center. Paul Goulding, program chair, in troduced Dr. James Wall, ear, nose and throat specialist (M.D. certied in otolaryngology)) at Northwest Florida Community Hospital as the program. Also present from the hospital were Heather Shelby, R.N., medical man ager (case management, utilization review), and Dr. Martin Roberts (In ternal Medicine and Hospitalist). Wall discussed medical emergencies of the ear, nose and head. Wall noted the eighth cranial nerve controls hearing and balance. Swim mers ear, a common summer prob lem for children, is often contracted by swimming in contaminated bodies of water such as ponds. Because the ear is close to the brain, swimmers ear left untreated can spread to the brain and become meningitis or a brain abscess. Children can develop cauliower ears (deformed ears) from wrestling and can also be due to child abuse. The deformation of the ear is due to a vascular injury which causes a por tion of the ear to wither. A middle ear infection, or otitis me dia, is painful and is often caused by a strep or pseudomonas infection and is treated with antibiotics. Sudden hearing loss, though un usual, should be seen to quickly since it can be caused by blockage of the cochlear artery or a viral infection. Either condition should be treated im mediately since it can lead to perma nent hearing loss. Hearing loss can be conductive or sensory neural loss such as ear wax or a hole in the membrane. The mem brane in the ear is as thin as a but terys wing. Gun shots or other loud noises can damage the membrane. People often experience a broken nose which often is crooked. It should be treated because a broken nose can result in a septal hematoma (blood clot inside the nose) which can dis solve the inside of the nose. A broken jaw can be diagnosed simply at home. Slip a table knife in each side of the teeth and have the person bite down. If the jaw is broken, one or both of the blades can be pulled out easily. Nose bleeds are either anterior or posterior (outside or inside). People who take blood thinner (this includes taking a regular aspirin daily) often have nose bleeds. A simple cure for a nose bleed is the over-the-counter spray Afrin. Afrin constricts the blood vessels and can stop the nose bleed. Aspirin is a blood thinner because as pirin stops the platelets from working. The platelets in the blood are what causes blood to coagulate. Posterior nose bleeds are more dif cult because the treatment is a long plug like a very slim tampon which the doctor inserts in the nose. The plug can be blown up and needs to stay in the nose for hours to help the blood vessel coagulate. Posterior nose bleeds are often due to high blood pressure or blood thinners. Sinus pain in the face can be caused by allergies or a sinus infec tion. Because the sinuses are close to the eyes, a sinus infection sometimes can cause blindness in 24-72 hours. This is why sinus infections should not be ignored if they continue. All of these conditions can happen but usually do not. However, it is great to have an experienced physician in the community to treat these medical emergencies when they occur. Member David Eaton, pharmacist at Northwest Florida Community Hos pital, said the hospital has acquired a new hearing booth, which should be in operation in the next few weeks. A doctor of audiology will be working with Wall to test hearing, including newborns and children too young to talk. Appointments for hearing tests can be scheduled by calling the hospi tal or Walls ofce at 415-8185.

Ever since her arrival in Aggieland, Reveille VII, a female Amer ican Collie, had been receiv ing the best care available at the Small Animal Hos pital at the Texas A&M College of Vet erinary Medicine & Biomedical Sci ence (CVM). Stacy Eckman, a lecturer at the CVM, had been treating Rev for arthritis since last August, when Revs caregivers, Tina and Paul Gardner, noticed that she was having trouble sit ting down like she normally would. Arthritis can attack bones and joints in animals the same way the disease does in humans, said Zach ary Goodrich, veterinary resident instructor at the CVM. However some ani mals, especially dogs, can be affected by arthritis at a much younger age than hu mans generally are. Some pets will be affected by ar thritis before they are even one year old. Reveille VII was twelve and a half. Although there is no cer tain way to prevent arthri tis in pets, owners can help stave off arthritis by making sure their dog has a good, healthy diet and gets plenty of exercise. Dogs that are over weight tend to be more af fected by arthritis, Eckman said. Reveille VII did not have that problem. Tina Gar dener did a great job keep ing Reveille slim and t, even with her reduced ac tivity level in retirement, Eckman said. Consistent low-impact exercise such as walking and swimming helps main tain good muscle mass as well as keeping your pet at an ideal body weight, said Goodrich. The more ex tra weight your pet carries around, the higher the stress being placed across its joints which may worsen the arthritis or affect your pets quality of life. There are sev eral signs for petowners to look for if they suspect their animal is suffering from arthritis. The most obvious sign is decreased activity level, said Goodrich. The ani mal may not want to go as far as it used to on a walk or may not want to walk at all. Other signs can include stiff ness when rising, especially after sleeping, and varying degrees of lameness. It is also important to have your animal examined. A veterinarian can take xrays of the affected joints to diagnose arthritis. However, x-ray images cant deter mine the diseases severity. Their signs on x-rays dont necessarily coordinate with their physical nd ings, Eckman said. In oth er words, a lack of change in the x-rays doesnt mean your pets arthritis isnt get ting worse. Although there is no cure for arthritis, there are a number of treatments avail able to help your arthritic pet feel better. These treat ments vary depending on the severity of the case. Early detectionbefore the disease has progressed too faris important to help maintain your pets ability to walk, run, and play. There are several surgi cal and medical treatment options available depending on which joint is affected, said Goodrich. Joint re placements are performed on a case-by-case basis. Ar throscopy is also routinely used to evaluate and treat the joint in a minimally inva sive manner. A veterinarian may give your dog steroid injections to help relieve inammation. Drugs, such as polysulfated glycosaminoglycan injec tions, help protect cartilage with minimal side effects. Medical options include non-steroidal anti-inam matory drugs, of which there are several on the vet erinary medical market, said Eckman. Most of them are actually formulated for osteoarthritis. However, never give your pets human medications such as ibupro fen or aspirin, as they can cause serious harm to your pets stomach, kidneys, and liver. When you use the drugs together, you can actually use less drug overall be cause they complement each other, said Eckman. Physical therapy, such as work on a water treadmill, is very important. Treatment for arthritis sometimes requires mul tiple types of therapy, said Jacqueline Davidson, clini cal professor at the CVM. Reveille was given sev eral different types of oral medication for pain and inammation and received injections of a joint lubricant and a steroid into several of the more severely affected joints. She also received in jections of a medication in the muscle to help with joint pain and inammation. Reveilles diet was also controlled throughout her therapy to make sure that she stayed at a lean body weight, and she took several different dietary supple ments for her joints, one of which was an omega-3 fatty acid, to help reduce pain as sociated with inammation. Being overweight re sults in more stress on the joints because they are supporting more weight, said Davidson. In addition, excess body fat promotes inammation in the body and can worsen the signs of arthritis. Reveille came to the TAMU veterinary physical rehabilitation service sev eral times weekly. Her treat ments included electro-acu puncture and laser therapy for pain and she exercised regularly in the underwater treadmill. Walking in water is help ful for arthritis because the buoyancy of the water re duces stress on the joints, allowing for more comfort able movement, said Da vidson. In addition, the water provides some resis tance, which helps promote leg strength. The TAMU Small Ani mal Hospital also provides nonmedical treatments to help with pain, such as dry needling, laser, highenergy wave therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and electro-acupuncture. A veterinarian can give recommendations for vari ous dietary supplements and a home exercise plan, as well as provide dietary counseling to choose the most appropriate diet to maintain lean body weight in your pet. There is no one right recipe for every dog, Eck man said. You have op tions, and you have to deter mine what works and what doesnt work.

So much so, it is hard to nd any day of the year where something or someone is not being observed, which has bene ted the greeting card company, you can be sure. I am not positive, but I think they have had a great deal to do with designating these days. Some days are celebrated a little more enthusiastically than others. The Fourth of July has recrackers; Halloween has funny and scary costumes, not to mention bags of candy; and Christmas boasts the Christmas tree and jolly old St. Nick with all his presents, and it is hard to compete with Christmas parties. And we come to Mothers Day. According to experts, more telephone calls are placed on Mothers Day than any other day of the year. Also, try to walk into a restaurant and get a seat. There is a theory, stating the reason Fathers Day is so lame is because so much has been spent on Mothers Day, there is nothing left. I think there should be a rule that says, whatever Mothers Day costs fathers, mothers should spend on Fathers Day. This would do one of two things; decrease Mothers Day or puff Fathers Day spending. Personally, I am in favor of puf ng. Perhaps with some effort, Fathers Day could be a little more exciting. I am not saying this just because I am a father. Well, maybe I am, but if I dont who will? Fathers in general are rather humble and hesitant to speak about themselves. Every father knows talk is not cheap, and because he has spent so much on Mothers Day, he simply is practicing good manners and shuts up. However, every father needs to know he is truly appreciated by his family. Although you cannot buy a father, it is possible to rent him on occasion. I am in favor of celebrating Fathers Day any which way you can. It really does not matter to the father involved. Any father would consider his child a million dollar baby if he or she would just give a Fathers Day card to him, along with a nice hot cup of coffee while sitting in his favorite chair reading the newspaper. Nothing the children did throughout the year would remain unforgiven if something this simple were done on Fathers Day. As it stands, Fathers Day is celebrated every which way but loose, and I believe it is time this has stopped. Too many loose ends concerning Fathers Day. It is a true crime the way certain things are left hanging concerning fathers. Some fathers have felt like the dead pool around Fathers Day, not knowing exactly what to expect. Mothers Day is rather simple. Every mother knows she will get certain things; owers, a Mothers Day card and dinner at her favorite restaurant. By the time Fathers Day comes around everybody is so exhausted from Mothers Day, not to mention most fathers are broke, nobody knows exactly how to make dads day special. Too many people are uptight about Fathers Day and feel like they are running the gauntlet. When I say people, I am referring primarily to Yours Truly. Nobody seems to know what to do about good ole dad on his special day. Fortunately, I have some ideas along this line. With some of the presents I have received, I am beginning to think my children imagine me as a space cowboy, or maybe a high plains drifter driving around in a pink Cadillac heading for the bridges of Madison County. When it comes to being a father, I assure you I am not the rookie walking on a tightrope, directly in the line of re running toward heartbreak ridge. I have quite a bit of experience being a father, going back more than 40 years. As a father, I have three children notched on my belt. At times, I have felt like the enforcer and the only way to deal with those children was to use magnum force and hang em high. I must confess at times I felt like a pale rider sweating it out in the city heat, realizing no matter how hard I try it is not a perfect world we live in. What would make my day, and other fathers day, would be a present I could really use, or at least understand without spending an entire day reading the directions. In spite of all this, I have discovered one thing; being a father is its own reward. The Bible puts fatherhood high on the list of important positions in life. David, the Psalmist, put his feelings about being a father into familiar words to all who have read the Bible. Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5 KJV.) This year, my advice is, go ahead and make dads day. He deserves it. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY West Florida Teen Challenge Christian Gateway Military Acad emy welcomed their new director Clay Hatcher on June 10. West Florida Teen Chal lenge Gateway Military Academy is a Christian military school that spe cializes in children ages 11 to 17 that have behavioral issues. Hatcher said he had 10 years experience, but at rst he didnt want the job. I was working at the Wellness Institute in Ponce de Leon in 2002 and wanted to move on to disciplining to young men, said Hatcher. People suggested I ap ply at Teen Challenge so I came down to apply. I had a two-hour wait, I wasnt impressed, it was unor ganized, I was frustrated and critical and left feeling there was no way I was go ing to teach there. He said a dream he had that evening was what changed his mind. I had a dream that rec reated the events the day before only this time instead of turning into Teen Chal lenge I kept going down the road, he said. Then, in the rearview mirror I seen a dark cloud over where the Teen Challenge was and a tornado touched down. I re member feeling terror and turning around to go back to help them. In his dream he saw that the entire facility was laid to waste. I looked around and saw a foot and after dig ging I found that the person was already dead, he said. I listened and all I could hear was the cries of people hurting. I remember go ing through the wreckage, digging people out and ad ministering rst aid, all the while wondering and look ing to see when help would arrive. He said he cried out to God and asked when the help would come and he said thats when God told him you are that help. I woke up crying and told my wife that I was going to accept the job, he said. At rst she was against it and then I told her my dream and she cried and said it was a sign. I commit ted myself to one year and ended up staying 10 years. He said in 2012 he re signed and went to preach at a local church. About this time last year I wanted out so I lead a church and watched it grow, said Hatcher. What God showed me was that he could use me any where and my place was at Teen Challenge. The director was leaving to start a Teen Challenge in Colorado and he called me saying that they needed me. After he got off the phone with Teen Challenge he said he called his father for advice. My father asked me if God had gifted me to do what others would not and my answer was yes, he said. It took me three weeks but I nally chose to come back. Ive seen changes that need to be made and now Im in a po sition to do so. One of those changes, said Hatcher, was to be more involved with the community. We moved our Wednes day night services to Thursday nights so that we can invite the public to come, he said. Were go ing to have a youth revival called Regardless based on Joshuas statement choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the ood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. We want to stir the youth of Holmes County to stand up for Christ.

Special to Extra BONIFAY The Bonifay Southern Gospel Sing will be held on Saturday July 6 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Holmes County High School located at 825 West Highway 90. This year the sing will host The Nelons and Evan gelist David Ring. Also ap pearing will be the Four Cal vary and One Heart. With numerable awards and accolades including three Grammy Nominations, Six Gospel Music Associa tion Dove Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, The Nelons continue to pro duce innovative music that embraces their traditional roots, while simultaneously reaching beyond various musical boundaries with an emphasis on introducing songs for the church. The Nelons have a heavy touring schedule consisting of more than 150 concerts annually that takes their brand of Christian music around the world. They are regulars on the Bill Gaither Homecoming Tour and the famed Gaither Homecom ing Video Series. During the rare times when the Nelons are not on the road, they serve as Artists in Residence at Jacksonvilles Trinity Bap tist Church. As they travel, theyre Ambassadors for Trinity Baptist College, where Amber attends. For (original group member) Kelly Nelon Clark, singing alongside her husband (song-writer and group arranger) Jason Clark, and daughter (vocal power-house), Amber Nelon Thompson this is a full-cir cle moment as she reects on the countless nights she shared the stage with her Hall of Fame Father, Rex Nelon. Nationally known speak er, David Ring, will be speak ing at the Bonifay sing. Born in Jonesboro, Ark., David was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes at birth leaving him with cerebral palsy. Or phaned at the age of 14 after both parents died of cancer, he was cast from family to family with nowhere to call home. He endured constant physical pain, humiliating public ridicule and constant discouragement. Yet he chose to be victorious rather than a victim. After surrendering his heart and life to Jesus Christ, he learned self-respect and acceptance of his physical challenges. To most, physi cal challenges of this mag nitude would prove to be a tombstone. For David Ring, this coming of age was and remains a milestone. Although difcult at rst to understand, Ring quickly captures his audiences with his quick wit and warm per sonality. He always focuses on an individuals need to conquer the personal chal lenges and adversities of life. As one who has not been stied by his physical limita tions, he clearly states his challenge to everyone. I have Cerebral Palsywhats your problem? asks Ring. Tickets are $10 in ad vance and $13 at the door for adults, ages 6 12 are $5 ad vance and $7 at the door, and ages 5 and younger will be free.
