It’s our job to take those who want to defend themselves out and teach them what they need to know. The more training you get, the better off you’re going to be.” Impact Firearms uses a range courtesy of the Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce, Porter said. “Sheriff Tim Brown allows us to use their range,” he said. “That’s a big deal when a sheriff is that invested in the safety and well-being of the people he serves and protects. We’re here to do anything we can do to help you better protect yourself and advise you on your next gun purchase and concealed weapon permit.” Porter said some would be surprised at the number of residents in Holmes County who have a concealed weapon permits. CECILIA SPEARS | Times-Advertiser Entering into week three of the Holmes County Public Library’s summer reading program, local children were entertained and educated by the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth about the history of Florida, which is following the continued theme of Viva Florida, celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida. The Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth also involved the children in their production, and in this scene the children were recruited as members of a crew to establish the rst and failed settlement in Pensacola.

Shakil Amin, a representative from Hatch Mott MacDonald, said the city was ready to go into phase two of the replacement and update project. Phase two includes laying 14,000 feet of six-inch linear pipe, paid for with a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “There are no matching funds required,” Bonifay City Grant Writer Bob Jones said. “With the city purchasing the engineering design fee, it gives the city considerable points towards the grant.” Council Member Richard Woodham requested something be done about the water park at Middlebrooks Park, which is no longer working. “We need to call the manufacturer and see about getting an estimate on how much it’ll cost to x it,” Woodham said. “The kids are missing it, and it’s getting hot.” Jones suggested getting a grant to repair it, and in the meantime, the city should calculate the cost to bypass computer programming and operate it manually until then. Water/sewer project ready for phase 2 BONIFAY CITY COUNCIL By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Holmes County District School Board approved of a contract agreement with the architect rm Clemons, Rutherford & Associates for the design of the new Bonifay Middle School and Bonifay Elementary School during its June 18 meeting. “We hope to have a sketch of the buildings available for the public soon,” Superintendent Eddie Dixon said. “This was the rst step of many in seeing this dream turned into a reality.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, June 26, 2013 “The law is complicated on where you are permitted to have a concealed weapon, but there’s a simple way of breaking it down,” he said. “No government buildings, which include schools, post ofces, city councils, board of county commissioners, etc. and any bars where they sell alcoholic beverages. Now if this is a restaurant with a bar you can be in the restaurant but you can’t be any where near the bar.” He said 33 states recog nize the Florida concealed weapon permit and the states closest to Florida that do not are Illinois and Nevada. “My biggest concern is anything to have to do with Alabama, especially Dothan, Ala.,” Porter said. “They have what’s considered a concealed rearms permit and only recognize Florida’s permit if you are in posses sion of a rearm. If you have a concealed weapons permit and a gun, you are safe in Al abama; however, if you have a pocket knife with a blade over three inches, you will be arrested, and trust me they are looking for Florida state tags and any excuse imaginable.” Porter also touched on ammunition safety, saying ammunition kept in a cool and climate controlled envi ronment could stay good for years, however ammunition in a concealed weapon in a vehicle or left in the chamber of the gun should be replaced every year for new ammuni tion, and if there’s any discol oration then the ammunition should be disposed because the casing has been compro mised, and it could lead to the gun exploding when at tempting to re it. “We get quite a few peo ple from other counties be cause we are one of the few places that care,” Porter said. “We’re not just in it for the money. We want to make sure you know how to shoot, and we want to make sure you learn something.” Classes are a standard fee of $75 plus ammunition and are held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, however, times will change for sum mer because of the heat. For more information, contact Impact Firearms at 547-2051. All contestants ages 10 and younger will receive a crown. There will be a trophy for rst and second runner-ups in all categories. If your child holds a current title, they are welcome to compete in the next category this year. None of the judges for this pageant are local. To compete in the photogenic category, the application and photo must be turned in no later than 24 hours before the pageant. No photos will be accepted the day of the pageant. Photos must be at least a 4x6 but no larger than an 8x10. Winners will receive a trophy. There will be no shifting of age groups on the day of the pageant.

IN BRIEF from page A1 SCHOOL sS from page A1 Dixon said he was very positive of the project’s suc cess to bring these muchneeded schools to the area. “We’ve gone over every possible positive aspect and impact these new schools will bring to our ever-growing area,” Dixon said. “For example, there’s the possibility of a new water tow er for the school that would have a positive impact on the surrounding residents. This is a very benecial endeavor, and I have a strong inclina tion that it will be positively received.” The board approved of the purchase of 11 new school bus es under the contract agree ment that it is paid through the Ebro Greyhound Park. “We’ve had this contract with Ebro for over 29 years, and they have always been faithful in keeping that con tract,” Dixon said. “It has been over ve years since we purchased buses and we are running out of spares. These buses are also longer; sitting an additional eight students per bus, which is needed for growth that we’ve been see ing in Holmes County.” Board also approved of a 4.9 percent base salary increase for all instructional and noninstructional employees. “I wanted to say that I went to Mobile, Ala., and watched our BETA Clubs perform,” said Board member Shirley Owens. “They have put a lot of hard work and dedication into their performances, and some of them placed very well. I’m very proud of them.” The next meeting of the Holmes County District School Board will be held at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, July 2 at the Holmes County District School Board ofce at 701 East Pennsylva nia Ave., Bonifay. GUN sS AFETY from page A1 The council agreed to get an assess ment before proceeding further. Mayor Lawrence Cloud requested City Attorney Lucas Taylor get the county building inspector to look at and possibly condemn the Kevin Fleming building on the corner of Waukesha Street and Virginia Avenue. After conrming the building was the old Neptune World pet shop, Taylor agreed to do some research and bring a sugges tion back at the next meeting. Taylor also reported he spoke with the attorney heading the BP Oil Settlement and informed the council they would not be eligible because they were not awarding anything to government entities. After much debate about the possible settlement being given to other local gov ernment entities, Taylor agreed to look further into the matter and bring it before the council at the next meeting at 6 p.m. on July 8 at the Bonifay City Hall.

U.S. 90. This year the sing will host The Nelons and Evangelist David Ring. Also appearing will be the Four Calvary and One Heart. With many awards and accolades including three Grammy Nominations, Six Gospel Music Association Dove Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, The Nelons continue to produce 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 Homecoming Video Series. During the rare times when the Nelons’ are not on the road, they serve as Artists in Residence at Jacksonville’s Trinity Baptist Church. As they travel, they’re Ambassadors for Trinity Baptist College, where Amber attends. For Kelly Nelon Clark (original group member), singing alongside her husband Jason Clark (song-writer and group arranger), and daughter Amber Nelon Thompson (vocal power-house), this is a full-circle moment as she reflects on the countless nights she shared the stage with her Hall of Fame Father, Rex Nelon. Nationally known speaker David Ring will be speaking at the Bonifay sing. Born in Jonesboro, Ark., David was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes at birth leaving him with cerebral palsy. Orphaned 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, physical challenges of this magnitude would prove to be a tombstone. For David Ring, this coming of age was and remains a milestone. Although difficult at first to understand, Ring quickly captures his audiences with his quick wit and warm personality. He always focuses on an individual’s need to conquer the personal challenges and adversities of life. As one who has not been stifled by his physical limitations, he clearly states his challenge to everyone. “I have Cerebral Palsy…what’s your problem?” asks Ring. Tickets are $10 in advance and $13 at the door for adults, ages 612 are $5 advance and $7 at the door, and ages 5 and younger are free. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Piggly Wiggly in Bonifay, Dove Christian Supply in Dothan and Enterprise, Ala., One South Bank in Chipley and Gospel Lighthouse Christian Store in Crestview.

The correct date of death for John Julius Fussell, is June 10 and the date of the funeral is June 12. Traditionally, my topic for Perrys Prattle just prior to the week-end of the watermelon festival, is devoted to the festival event. In the columns eleventh year of existence, the big question in the writers mind is: just how much more can be written about the gigantic watermelon event which, without question, has put Chipley and Washington County on the map? It seems that history buffs want to know that the upcoming festival is the 57th one and the buffs still want to know its origin. J. E. (Red) Davis. longtime Washington County Agriculture Extension Agent, was the rst chairman of the festivities and remained in that job 20 years. The prime movers in the earlier days include Ross Deal, on whose property the rst event was held, which later evolved into todays mammoth two day extravaganza. Your writer was drafted into the job of chairman in 1976 and served for 30 years. The activities of the daylong event in those years were con ned to three main events. The Beauty Pageant, directed by Pat Balboni and, later Aldine Adams, was a main attraction. South AlabamaNorthwest Florida Horsemans Approved Horse Show was staged at the Agri-Center Arena, and was chaired by Washington County newcomer, Dick Kneiss. The third event was the Big Watermelon Contest and Auction, with melon games for children, plus serving refreshing red ripe sweet watermelon to our guests. Secondary activities included a Free Fun Night on Friday night preceding the big day. Credit is given to Lamar Townsend for providing the improvised stage for this fun event and to Dalton Carter, who could take a small budget of $150 and provide quality musical entertainment to ll a full evening of exciting fun and frolic. The Shrine Club Pancake Festival, the 5K road race and the big parade through downtown Chipley, joined in the festive occasion early in its history. After my departure as chairman seven years ago, county judge Colby Peel, agreed to take the reins and, as the late journalist and national newscaster, Paul Harvey would report, chairman Peel is presently carrying out the rest of the story. Other key people involved in the humble beginnings of the festival were Austin F. Townsend, Walker Hughen, Henry Hargrove, V. J. Collins, Andrew (Andy) Grif n and Farrell Nelson. Now days, we depend upon prison inmate labor to do the grass cutting and landscaping of the grounds at the Agriculture Center in preparation for the yearly festival. In earlier times, Maxwell Hudson, an employee of the county, had those duties, plus other details of carrying out the massive custodial chores of staging the festival, plus the clean up that followed. He was fortunate to have a young family, mostly girls, whom he enlisted to assist him in the task of carrying out the watermelon festival. They were not paid for their labors, and it has been my privilege to personally thank them for their voluntary and faithful assistance so many years ago. The brochure advertising the watermelon festival in 1978 and 1979 was printed on a legal size sheet of colorful paper. It was personally typed in the Agriculture Center Of ce and duplicated on copy machine available at that time. Later, the advertising yers were more professionally printed and folded for easy handling and for mailing. This style of promoting the festival returned to the full length, legal size paper in 2003, when advertising was sold for the rst time to businesses, lending agencies, and others in order to bring suf cient money to pay better known talent to our event, thus attracting more visitors. This is the year that we hired the IBMA Entertainer of the Year, The Del McCoury Band, which produced a record turnout in the air conditioned auditorium for a stellar concert that is still being talked about to this day. Dr. Shane Collins, of WPAP Radio Fame in Panama City, was the MC for this mammoth year of top entertainment. As chairman, I told the committee that I was not ready to make public the price required to attract this popular bluegrass/ bluegrass gospel group to our festival. After it went well, and with ample money to pay all the expenses of the event, the gure of $10,000 was revealed. For the past seven years, this gure pales to the total expenditures of $35,000 now required to attract and pay all the top quality entertainment that the present leadership continues to bring to the historic watermelon festival. Where can you receive a full weekend of fabulous talent, performing free and in an air conditioned facility, with organizers furnishing free slices of delicious, sweet and cool watermelon for you the visitor to enjoy? A new style, colorful promotional yer was introduced by the current chairman this year. A broader coverage with the watermelon festivals own web page has produced over 220,000 hits with the festival more than a week away, according to Chairman Colby Peel. Entertainment and wholesome fun and festivities is the order of the two day event, June 28 and 29, 2013 and I hope all of you are making plans to attend. The Washington County Historical Society Museum at 685 7th. Street will be open Friday, June 28 and Saturday June 29 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. expressly for selling the Heritage of Washington County Books in a last call effort to close out sales of the 4th. Printing. See you all next week.

His wife, Hester, is shown as his driver. The origin of the Watermelon Festival In a recent ceremony at the University Center in Tallahassee, Jedd McFatter received top state recognition for saving Florida $400, 000. His innovative work as state training administrator for the Long-term Care Ombudsman Program at the Department of Elder Affairs earned him the Prudential-Davis Award. In addition to the cost saving to the state, McFatter increased the efficiency of the department by installing on-line training certification programs for volunteers which cut training time from 4 days to one. The award affirms Jedds philosophy that government should be as efficient as possible in using tax payers money. Government should be a good steward of public money, he said. A $500.00 cash award accompanies the honor. McFatter is now working with the National Ombudsman Resource Center in Washington D.C. to develop an online training system based on Floridas model, according to Elder Affairs spokesman. Prudential Davis Awards were begun 25 years ago by the Davis brothers who founded Winn Dixie and Tax Watch. It recognizes state employees who have shown outstanding ways to serve the citizens of Florida in a more efficient and cost-effective way. Twenty-eight additional state employees also received recognition at the banquet where Gov. Rick Scott praised the recipients for their productivity improvements. A total of 468 awards will be given this year statewide for cost saving improvements of $514 million Jedd grew up in Bonifay the only son of the late James Edward McFatter (Coach Mac) and Madaline Steverson McFatter. He attended Bonifay Elementary, Bonifay Middle School, and graduated with honors from Holmes County High School in 1998 where he starred in athletics, especially basketball. Jedd graduated from Florida State University with a degree in English/creative writing. After studying for a semester in England, he then attended Denver Seminary where he earned a Masters degree in The Philosophy of Religion. After his marriage to Michelle Liles, they served in Uganda for two years as missionaries in the Food For The Hungry organization. The couple has two daughters, Leora and Analise Rael named for a girl Michelle helped in Uganda. They currently reside in Tallahassee. In addition to his work with the Department of Elder Affairs, Jedd is pursuing a Doctorate at Florida State University. The McFatter family have contributed greatly to our community. Beloved Coach Mac touched the lives of thousands of kids and young people as he coached all Physical Education classes at Bonifay Elementary School and Bonifay Middle School, as well as coaching basketball at the high school and assisting with the football program there. He organized bicycle safety derbies. He coordinated field days. He directed Vacation Bible School recreation. He drove the bus and chaperoned for hundreds of school and church trips. Ill never forget two trips to Ridgecrest with Coach Mac as the church bus driver. Once we broke down on the interstate and had to wait on the side of the hill for a charter to come and get us. Another time, we broke down in Columbus, Ga. We spent hours at an Arbys where our youth group entertained the patrons with several acapela songs. This many talented family have been assets to our community and continue to be in the places where they make their adult homes. All the McFatter girls which include Joni Kitching, Jana Manuel, Jill Chester, and Jami Kimbell are quite talented musically and often added to our worship services at First Baptist Church when they were growing up. Mother Madaline, a multitalented lady, taught special education courses at Holmes County High until her retirement, but continues as a frequent substitute teacher. The McFatter family mean a lot to Bonifay and Holmes County and we are very proud to see Jedd recognized at the state level. James Edward McFatter Jr (Jedd) wins Prudential-Davis Award HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison His innovative work as state training administrator for the Long-term Care Ombudsman Program at the Department of Elder Affairs earned him the Prudential-Davis Award.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, June 26, 2013 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com WAUSAU An audit of Wausaus nances shows the towns nances are improving, but the water department is working on a very tight budget. Hilton Galloway of the CPA rm Carr, Riggs & In gram LLC of Enterprise, Ala., told the Town Council Thursday the town showed $75,000 in assets and $32,000 in decits for a balance of $42,000 in unassigned funds. When? Youre right where you should be, but you should think about trying to build up some reserves, Gal loway said. The water de partment revenues cov ered the departments ex penses, but just barely. Wausaus nancial health hinges on the per formance of its water department. The town has so much wrapped up in assets; you need to address that, Gal loway said. I understand you raised water rates last year, and you will need to address that again this year. You cannot go to sleep on the water department. Rate increases will help keep the balance sheets in the black, but Mayor BJ Phillips said he hopes the town can get ahead to the point it doesnt have to raise rates every year. The town received grants last year that in ated the 2012 revenue streams. Its hard to put your arms around the g ures of 2012 and get a real good idea of what you re ally had, Galloway said. The water department ended the year with a $183 decit, which Galloway said was not enough to say or do anything about. With the current rates, the water department is taking in just enough to op erate. Eventually, you are going to need to make re pairs, or buy equipment, Galloway said. That is when you will really need to have some reserves in the water department. The auditor recom mended the council mem bers remain diligent. You have to be cogni zant of what the water department is doing each month, Galloway said. You almost have the per fect storm in operating by taking in just exactly what you need to operate the system. City Clerk Margaret Riley also presented the council with an advertise ment for approval. The town will be searching for a new city clerk, and Riley suggested they begin ad vertising as soon as pos sible for her replacement. Riley announced her in tention to retire in Sep tember during the June 13 town council meeting. It looks like a large job description, but its a large job, Phillips said. We def initely want to nd some one who is well qualied. By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The 57th an nual Panhandle Water melon Festival kicks off Friday, June 28, at Pals Park with concerts by Andy Griggs at 6 p.m. and Joe Dife at 7:30 p.m. This type of quality en tertainment is really spe cial, Festival Chairman Colby Peel said Thursday at the Washington County Chamber of Commerce meeting. Peel said he has re ceived numerous calls from surrounding com munities asking how it is possible for Washington County to put on such an event for free. For a community our size to be able to bring in acts like this and have the event free really says a lot about the commitment by this community to the fes tival, Peel said. Gates will open at 5 p.m. Friday at Pals Park, and the event is free and open to the public. Andy Griggs is an American country music artist. He has released three albums for RCA Re cords Nashville You Wont Ever Be Lonely, Freedom and This I Gotta See and a fourth, The Good Life, for Mon tage Music Group. These four albums have accounted for 13 singles on the Billboard country charts, of which the high est are You Wont Ever Be Lonely and Shes More, both of which peaked at No. 2. He also charted Grow Young With You, a cut from the soundtrack to the lm Where the Heart Is. Joe Dife is an Ameri can country music singer known for his ballads and novelty songs. Dife has charted 35 songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, in cluding ve No. 1 singles: his debut release Home. If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets), Third Rock from the Sun, Pickup Man and Bigger Than the Beatles. In addition to these cuts, he has 12 other top 10 singles and 10 other top 40 hits on the same chart. He also co-wrote sin gles for Holly Dunn, Tim McGraw and Jo Dee Mes sina and has recorded with Mary Chapin Carpenter, George Jones and Marty Stuart.

Special to Halifax Media Starting June 30, saltwater species can be targeted with a spearing device in Collier County state waters for the first time in more than 60 years. The recent repeal of rules that prohibited spearing should facilitate the harvest of nonnative invasive lionfish that are negatively impacting Florida’s native fish and wildlife. Spearfishing is among the most effective methods for lionfish control and removal, along with the use of hand-held nets. These changes were approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at its April meeting when Commissioners repealed a rule that prohibited spearing and another rule that prohibited using an artificial light while spearfishing or gigging in Florida state waters off Collier County (from shore to 9 nautical miles). The Collier Board of County Commissioners sent a letter to the FWC in February requesting these repeals shortly after the Jan. 13 hook-andline capture of the first lionfish to be documented in state waters off the county. The ban on spearing and using a light while spearfishing or gigging was put in place in the early 1950s, before the development of current statewide spearfishing regulations, and are just a few of the many Special Acts of Local Application that were put in place by the Florida Legislature, prior to creation of the FWC and one of its predecessors, the Marine Fisheries Commission. All current statewide regulations on the use of spears will apply in state waters off Collier County. Spearing is not allowed in freshwater or when targeting freshwater species; within 100 yards of a public swimming beach, any commercial or public fishing pier or any part of a bridge from which public fishing is allowed; within 100 feet of any part of a jetty that is above the water’s surface except for the last 500 yards of a jetty that extends more than 1,500 yards from the shoreline; in Monroe County from Long Key north to the Dade County line; and in any body of water under the jurisdiction of the Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Recreation and Parks. Using powerheads, bangsticks and rebreathers is also not allowed. The following species cannot be speared: billfish, spotted eagle ray, sturgeon, manta ray, sharks, bonefish, tarpon, goliath grouper, snook, blue crab, Nassau grouper, spotted seatrout, red drum, weakfish, stone crab, pompano, African pompano, permit, tripletail, lobster and many species of ornamental tropical fish such as surgeonfish, trumpetfish, angelfish, butterflyfish, porcupinefish, cornetfish, squirrelfish, trunkfish, damselfish, parrotfish, pipefish, seahorse, puffers and triggerfish, with the exception of gray and ocean triggerfish. A recreational fishing license is not required for anyone targeting lionfish with hand-held nets, a pole spear, a Hawaiian sling or any spearing device that is specifically designed for harvesting lionfish. All other spearfishers must have a recreational fishing license, unless otherwise exempt from the requirement, and all regulations apply, including seasons, bag limits and size limits.

Lake Victor is a popular, 130-acre FWC-managed impoundment in Holmes County. Since the impoundment was constructed, the FWC has stocked sh, managed vegetation, provided boating access, created sh attractors and spawning beds and otherwise strove to create quality shing. So, what happened, and could it happen to a lake near you? Unfortunately, it seems like a case of nature taking its course and, yes, it happens throughout the state each summer. In this case, it appears that heavy rainfalls ushed organic matter into the lake and the organic matter began to decompose, resulting in a low-dissolved-oxygen (DO) sh kill. As in most such cases, the die-off did not kill all of the sh, and when the water cleared and the sun came out, oxygen levels recovered and biologists observed numerous surviving sh. This type of sh kill is pretty much a natural occurrence. They are especially prevalent in summer, when a number of factors can come together to deplete the oxygen that is dissolved in the water. Fish absorb this oxygen from the water using their gills. A healthy lake or river normally has approximately 7 to 9 parts per million (ppm) of oxygen, which is an ideal level for most sh. When the water temperature is lower, more oxygen dissolves into it. When temperatures rise, DO levels naturally drop due to reduced solubility. If the level drops below 5 ppm, many sh start showing adverse impacts, and below 2 ppm it can be lethal, if it lasts very long. Some species of sh are better adapted to low DO conditions, such as bow n or gar, but most of our freshwater sun shes (bass, bream, and crappie) are less tolerant. Aquatic plants produce most of the oxygen in lakes through photosynthesis, which occurs when green (chlorophyll) cells convert light into energy. However, at night or when there is inadequate light, plants use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Additional oxygen enters the water from the atmosphere by diffusion. In addition to sh using oxygen and plants removing it at night, a major demand on oxygen comes from decomposition of dead plant and animal tissue (organic matter). Area residents first contacted the FWC about the fish kill in Lake Victor on April 17, after seeing dying fish floating. Fisheries biologists responded immediately and determined the DO level in much of the lake with pea-green water was 0.0 to 2.0 ppm, enough to cause the kill. Often, descriptions of lakes being pea-green relate to algal blooms, which are another insidious response to nutrients (decaying plant material, or organic fertilizers flushed from yards or crops by rain). These blooms block light to rooted plants so they do not produce as much oxygen. When algae die, they further increase the bacterial bloom. Biologists visited daily for several weeks, documenting the number of dead fish and concluded that few adult game fish survived. However, they observed some schools of fingerling bass and bream from the spring spawn and a few bass on beds. “We know there was over 19 inches of rain in the area from January to April, and the lake got its share of rain and runoff,” said Chris Paxton, the FWC’s freshwater fisheries administrator for northwest Florida. He said the FWC was in constant contact with the Florida Department of Health and the Department of Environmental Protection and that FWC staff accompanied investigators from the Department of Agriculture to inspect the lake during the fish kill. There was no visual evidence of chemical pollution, toxic algal blooms or signs of disease among the dead fish. “This is something all of us, including the residents around the lake and our own fisheries management staff, wish never happened but in time the lake will recover,” Paxton said. Once oxygen levels build back up, the FWC will restock the lake with fingerling sport fish. Bream and crappie populations can respond within one to two years but it may take three to four years for significant bass populations to rebuild. FWC biologists will monitor the lake and consider all fisheries management tools that may quicken the lake’s recovery. The good news is there is no evidence of any form of contamination that would prevent the lake from recovering. In addition, reduced competition often allows young sport fish to grow rapidly after kills of this type. To learn more about fish kills and what you can do to help prevent them, visit MyFWC.com/Contact. Although most summer fish kills relate to natural processes, the FWC requests your support in reporting fish kills to the FWC Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511 or at the above link. Special to Halifax Media Gag grouper will open for recreational harvest in most Gulf of Mexico state waters and all Gulf federal waters July 1. The same day, the season will close in state waters off the coast of Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties. The gag grouper recreational harvest season in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters, not including Franklin, Jefferson, Wakulla, Taylor and Monroe counties, will remain open through Dec. 3. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties were open from April 1 through June 30 and will not be open during the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season. Monroe County is also excluded from the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season because it is included in the Atlantic rules for gag grouper. Gag grouper caught in federal waters during the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. (See maps.) The four-county region includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. The FWC manages marine sh from the shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico. The FWC is working with Florida’s anglers to rebuild gag grouper populations in the Gulf of Mexico back to strong, sustainable levels. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits are 22 inches total length and two gag grouper per person. To learn more, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on “Saltwater,” “Recreational Regulations” and “Gulf Grouper.” Special to Halifax Media It’s that time of year again to unfurl the dive ag, put a mask on and head to the coast to collect some bay scallops. The recreational season is open in Gulf of Mexico state waters (shore to 9 nautical miles) from the Pasco-Hernando county line to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County starting July 1. The season will remain open through Sept. 24, with the rst day of the closure on Sept. 25. The bag limit is two gallons of whole bay scallops or one pint of meat per person, per day, with a vessel limit of 10 gallons of whole bay scallops or a half-gallon of meat. Scallops may be collected by hand or with a landing or dip net. Scallops cannot be taken ashore outside of the open area. There is no commercial harvest for bay scallops in Florida state and federal waters. The average number of scallops observed during pre-season surveys doubled in Homosassa and St. Joseph Bay and increased slightly in Steinhatchee. The St. Marks average decreased substantially from June 2012, which was most likely due to effects from Tropical Storm Debby. Be safe when diving for scallops. Be sure to stay within 300 feet of a properly displayed divers-down ag when scalloping in open water and within 100 feet of a properly displayed divers-down ag if on a river, inlet or navigation channel. Boat operators traveling within 300 feet of a divers-down ag in open water or 100 feet of one on a river, inlet or navigational channel must slow to idle speed. Done for the day? Help FWC’s scallop researchers by completing an online survey at http://svy.mk/ bayscallops. Harvesters can indicate where they harvest scallops, how many they collect and how long it takes to harvest them. Participants can email BayScallops@MyFWC.com to ask questions or send additional information.

SPORTS A Section By BRAD MILNER Halifax Media Group Prospects from the high school, junior college and Division I baseball levels highlighted the area selections in the Major League Baseball Draft on June 8. Karsten Whitson was selected for the second time since departing Chipley. He was taken No. 9 overall by San Diego in 2010, but he turned down a reported $2.1 million signing bonus and attended Florida, where he had a stellar freshman season on the mound. Inconsistency plagued him his sophomore year and he missed last season after having shoulder surgery. Whitson was taken by Washington in the 37th round. He likely will return to Florida for a redshirt junior season. Gulf Coasts Tyler Dial was the rst selection with area ties on the nal day, going to San Diego in the 15th round and 448th overall. He joined teammate Tevin Johnson, who was chosen in the 31st round by Pittsburgh. Logan Quimuyog was the lone area high-schooler taken Saturday. The Mosley graduate was taken by the New York Mets in the 39th and next-to-last round. Former Chipola star and Florida State closer Robby Coles rounded out the area picks with a 28th-round selection by the Mets. Coles joined teammates Peter Miller (Los Angeles Dodgers), Marcus Davis (San Diego) and Scott Sitz (Detroit) as third-day draftees. Other Gators selected were Taylor Ratliff (Arizona), John Magliozzi (New York Mets), Cody Dent (Washington) and Jeff Driskel (Boston).

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 Page 7 By JASON SHOOT Halifax Media PANAMA CITY BEACH Sisters they are not, but Eden Hawes and Casey Justice swear they can read each others mind. We call it twin telepathy even though we arent related and dont look alike, Justice said. The teenagers clearly enjoy some kind cerebral connection on the court as a highly successful beach volleyball team. Theyve collected ve tournament titles and a pristine 33-0 record since March, many of those victories recorded against players considerably older. They are set to travel to the west coast next month and will compete in a pair of tournaments, most notably the AAU Junior Olympic Beach Volleyball Championships in Hermosa Beach, Calif., on July 27-30. Justice is 14 and Hawes is 13. The girls, both of whom are 5-foot-6, are enrolling at Arnold as freshmen in the fall. They still can count on one hand the number of years theyve been playing volleyball. But their progression in the sport has been remarkable, particularly since they didnt team up on the beach until two years ago. Hawes and Justice have dominated every event theyve entered this year. They were crowned 18U champions in a local junior tournament in May, won the 14-under title at an AAU tournament in Orlando, claimed the 16U championship at the Gulf Coast Region Tournament, and won the doubles title in the 16U age group in a Fudpuckers tournament. They even slipped in a four-man title at that Fudpuckers event. We were at a camp in Tampa and got a lot of questions like, How old are you? and How long have you been playing together? said Hawes, who turns 14 next month. Weve been playing together two years. We try to play older teams. Thats what (three-time Olympic champion) Kerri Walsh did. Thats what we try to do. Con rmed Arnold coach and athletic director Karisa Wesley: Theyre actually very advanced. ... They went to Orlando and went to the 14-under division and beat everyone very easily. They try to play up a level for the competition. Hawes has been selected to participate in the USA Volleyball Beach High Performance Program, an intensive program intended to develop players for collegiate and international play. Hawes will train with a select group of 15U players from across the nation, and she will head to California next month for that before pairing up with Justice again at junior nationals. I am very jealous, quipped Justice, who narrowly missed the age cutoff for the elite program. Ill be lonely, Hawes added, trying to console her friend. By the fourth day I think maybe Ill have a friend or two. Justice and Hawes admitted that if they were given a choice, they would prefer to play under the sun on a sand court rather than under the lights indoors. When youre indoors you have to stay in your little space, Justice said. Rest assured, though, they will suit up for Arnold next season. Wesley said she is looking at them on the varsity level. They love the game, Wesley said. They walk into the gym and go pick up a ball. Weve been doing morning workouts at 7 a.m., theres an open gym, theres beach training. They do all of that in one day. They are absolutely in love with volleyball whether its beach or indoors. Wesley said the two young players can expect to grow in coming years, both in terms of height and development. Justice and Hawes said they train on the sand with local beach player Kevin Jones. Kids have dreams, and right now their dream is to play beach volleyball at the college level, Wesley said. They work with the beach coach at Florida State (assistant coach Brian Corso). Theyve got exposure at the collegiate level and with those coaches as well. Local players go to Major League Baseball Young volleyball players sweep older competition HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Casey Justice, left, and Eden Hawes are 33-0 since March in ve tournament victories. www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com

Local A8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, June 26, 2013 Special to Times-Advertiser BONIFAY Each 4th of July we celebrate our freedom. Members of the Bonifay Garden Club, Peggy La Plante, Eileen Wright, DiAnn Shores, Susan Pittman, Carla Templeton, and Garden Club President, Adonna Bartlett, took on project to spruce up the garden around the Blue Star Memorial marker, located on Hwy 90. Jack Marell, Superintendent with City of Bonifay has been very instrumental in helping with the project. The Memorial honors those who have served and are currently serving in the military, to help protect our freedom. From our rst troops who fought to help America gain independence from England in the 1700s, to our present-day troops serving. We appreciate the sacrices our military make to help keep us, a free, democratic country. Adonna Bartlett, President of the Bonifay Garden Club said, with the placement of this Blue Star Memorial Marker and the added attention to the garden around the marker, we hope, will help to increase awareness of the Memorial and of the importance it plays to our military who play a role in defending our country and our rights as a democratic nation. The garden club most recently added knockout roses, purple lantana and a mix of other annuals and perennials. Along with the existing Natchez white crape myrtles the color tapestry will be colors of red, white and blue. National Garden Clubs, Inc. has placed Blue Star Markers in all 50 states to honor our armed forces. These markers are metal plaques that have a blue star at the top and the words A Tribute to the Armed Forces of America inscribed below the star. All honor is due them, who defend us from aggression, and help preserve our freedom. Begun in 1945, this program is one of the longest-running projects sponsored by National Garden Clubs, Inc. Unfortunately, many are not aware of the story behind, why, there are Blue Star Memorial Markers. Use of blue stars to honor our military began during World War I when Army Capt. Robert Queissner designed a rectangular banner 9 inches wide and 14 inches long. The banner had a white eld, red border and two blue stars in the center representing his two sons who were ghting in the war. He hung the banner in his front window where passers-by could see it and remember his sons and their dedication to keeping America free. His idea of honoring military family members serving in the war with a blue star banner soon caught on. By World War II, the blue star banner was hung in thousands of windows across America. If a family member was killed, the blue star was replaced with a gold one; and if a family member was injured or disabled, a silver star replaced the blue one. In 1944, the New Jersey State Council of Garden Clubs voted to beautify a stretch of U.S. Highway 22 with 8,000 dogwood trees in memory of American servicemen and women who had given their lives to protect our country during World War I and World War II. The Legislature of New Jersey voted to name this piece of highway Blue Star Drive in honor of the blue star banners own in so many windows during both world wars. In 1945, National Council of Garden Clubs, Inc. chose to adopt New Jerseys Blue Star Drive as a national project. They changed the name to Blue Star Memorial Highway Project and began placing Blue Star Memorial Highway Markers along highways across America. The area around each plaque was landscaped by the garden club sponsoring the memorial. Thus began a ribbon of living memorial plantings across America in honor of our troops. While we go about our daily lives or while we sleep, the men and women of the Armed Forces y our skies, sail our seas and guard our shores, ensuring our safety. They stand ready at a moments notice to defend our Country. We must not forget them, and we do not. We remember with every step of the Honor Guard at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We remember with every drumbeat on the Fourth of July. We pledge allegiance to our ag and We remember. At the sound of Reveille, we remember, and as the last lingering note of Taps resounds in the distance, we remember. The Blue Star marker is dedicated to the honor and glory of all those men and women who have served, are now serving and will serve in the armed forces of this great nation. This marker stands as a symbol for All to see, lest we forget, those who help to keep us free. Adonna Bartlet, said, Because of increased U.S. military activity during the last few years, garden clubs throughout the nation have added more Blue Star Markers to show our troops we support their efforts and appreciate their sacrices. This program has been active through the years a tting tribute always and especially now. To date, over 3,000 markers have been placed by garden clubs throughout the U.S. The Bonifay Garden Club has been in active membership since 1951, coming to the close of their 62nd year of continuous membership. The club meets September through May on the second Friday of each month. Interesting programs and pilgrimages are scheduled throughout the year. The club has sponsored beautication efforts throughout the city. For more information on the club and its activities, email Adonna Bartlett, incoming president at adonna. bartlett@yahoo.com.

Raciappa is a business coach with ActionCOACH of Tallahassee, and he was the guest speaker at Thursdays Washington County Chamber of Com merce meeting. Small business owners tend to work harder and longer hours than most people, and they also tend to work more than their employees, Raciappa said. Having employees to whom tasks can be delegated can go a long way to ward improving the quality of life for a business owner or supervisor. There are a lot of denitions of success, but health and happiness are two of the most important, Raciappa said. Dividing up work not only multi plies the results, it frees up the busi ness owner or supervisor to have free time to enjoy life. When you reach a milestone, even a small one, you should celebrate it, Raciappa said. That goes for business as well as life, and while supervisors may be quick to compliment or praise an employee, they should also be able to commend themselves on a job well done. Raciappa will present a seminar for Chamber members from 9 to 11 a.m. July 17 at the Northwest Florida Com munity Hospital Specialty Center, and attendance is free for members. One of the topics will be Raciappas SYSTEM, an acronym for Saving You Stress Time Energy and Money. Leverage is all about SYSTEM, Raciappa said. The program is based on Bradley Sugars book Instant Sys tems, which educates entrepreneurs on the benets of systemizing work processes within their businesses so that the enterprises can function with out the direct interference of the busi ness owner, according to the website instantsystems.net. Sugars is a business coach, author and CEO of ActionCOACH, which is the worlds number one business and executive coaching rm home to more than 1,000 ofces in 26 coun tries, according to the website. Focus on making one improve ment in your life a week, Raciappa said. A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. If you make one goal a week, even a small one, and you do that every week, theres no limit to how far you can go. Youll be amazed. Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett also invited members from Holmes and Jackson County cham bers to attend the seminar. We need to be more interactive and support each others events, Everett said. Call the Washington County Cham ber of Commerce at 638-4157 to regis ter for the seminar.

By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Children were entertained, educated and participated in the adventures of a married couple visiting Florida on vacation in a production presented by the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth in honor of Viva Florida, celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida, which was held at the Holmes County Public Library during its third week of their summer reading program on June 20. The scene was on a beach in Florida, and as this vacationing couple tried to get ready to enjoy the beach, they came upon a treasure chest lled with ancient artifacts that when worn would transform them into famous characters who were important in the history of the discovery and establishment of Florida. Children of all ages were pulled into participating in song and role as the history of Florida was played out for them on stage. “I thought it was absolutely the most amazing show we’ve had in years,” assistant director Ann Leavins said. “The children loved it. Both the younger and the older children were enthralled from beginning to end because it was both historical and fun.” Leavins said the husband and wife duo have had the business of the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth for more than 16 years and were called on by the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs to develop this program especially for Viva Florida. “They write their own scripts and do over a year of research before ever putting on a production,” Leavins said. “I was amazed about how much I learned about Florida. Like for instance, I thought St. Augustine was the oldest settlement in Florida and come to nd out it’s the oldest surviving settlement in Florida. Even the story about where the legend of Pocahontas came from was a rst for me, and I enjoyed every minute of it.” Washington County News z Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, JUNE 26 2013 B PAGE 1 Section E XTRA “Trivia Fun” with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country and is a weekly feature in The Washington County News and The Holmes County Times-Advertiser. 1) “Thousand Island” dressing was named for the islands of which river?

When the time comes for a family member to move into a nursing home or retirement community, many worry their loved ones will begin to feel lonely and unneeded as time goes by. Fortunately, thanks to people such as Kit Darling and Dr. Karen Snowden and their work with organizations like Aggieland Pets With A Purpose, many elderly residents are getting the chance to experience the unconditional love of a pet. “People in nursing homes usually face a lot of physical challenges, and having a pet live with them is not an option,” said Kit Darling, infection control coordinator at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science (CVM). “But many nursing homes now will allow personal pets to visit or may schedule pet visits with an animal-assisted therapy group.” Aggieland Pets With A Purpose, or APWAP, is a non-prot animal-assisted therapy organization. APWAP members and their pets, usually dogs or cats, visit assisted-living and nursing home facilities. “It is always very rewarding to see a person smile or talk about their pets when one of my APWAP-certied dogs like Dexter or Daschle visits a nursing home facility,” Darling said. “Each animal involved in APWAP has passed a temperament test and receives regular veterinary care with parasite control and vaccinations in order to be a part of the program,” Darling said. “It is also important for the animals that visit to be healthy and clean, so all of our animals have a bath within 24 hours prior to a visit, including having their nails led and ears cleaned.” Some retirement communities and assistedliving facilities allow their residents to have pets live with them. In these communities, the residents usually have an apartment and must be physically able to care for their pet’s daily needs. The pet must also be friendly toward other people and animals and should have regular visits with its veterinarian to ensure it is healthy. There may also be restrictions on the type and size of pets allowed depending on the facility. “Having a pet can be greatly benecial to the health of the older population,” said Dr. Karen Snowden, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science (CVM). “A pet can provide companionship and social opportunities for the elderly population, as well as physical, psychological and emotional health benets.” “After children are grown and maybe a spouse has passed, a person may feel isolated and inessential,” Snowden said. “Having to care for a pet provides a sense of need, and having regular interactions with a pet has shown to lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety, increase physical activity and enhance social opportunities.” PET TT ALK By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIF A A Y — As the Boni fay Elementary School students continue their education with the sum mer learning program known as Winners Growing Strong, the students gath ered around for a demon stration of “worm ddling” on June 18. “The theme this year is Making Sense of Bugs and Slugs,” BES assistant prin cipal Phillip Byrd said. “It is project-based learning with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities that relate to using our ve senses to understand bugs and slugs.” Byrd said this theme is used in every subject of study.

I am a realist in a modi ed de nition of that word, and I usually take things as they come. My past week, however, was an open commentary on Murphys Law. Offhand, I am not quite sure who came up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week. If I had it within me, I would establish Snyders Law, which simply stated means what can go right will go right. Then all would be right with the world. Well, except for those who are left-handed. It all started Monday morning when I had an early morning meeting. I meant to set my alarm clock for 6 a.m., but for some reason I set it for 6 p.m. and overslept. Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy. In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn, and they were charging me an insuf cient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed, how it happened I will never know, I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again. It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traf c. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was pointing way beyond the E. My gas tank was about as empty as my bank account. It is bad to run out of gas, but the worst thing for me about running out of gas is calling the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and asking her for help. I would walk 100 miles not to tell her I am out of gas. She always comes and bails me out. However, for the next six months I am reminded and reminded and reminded to put gas in my tank. Thursday also had its issues. My wife wanted me to go to the store and pick up something and for some reason, I cannot remember it now, I used her car. Maybe it was because I did not want to run out of gas! I got to the store, paid for my purchase, came out and tried nding my truck. I walked up and down and my truck was nowhere in sight. The only thing I could think of at the time was that somebody had stolen my truck. I thought about calling the police, and then I thought better and decided I would call my wife rst. You know what it is like when your wife hears something secondhand. And so I called her. I cant nd my truck, I said trying to keep my voice as calm as possible not to get her upset, I think somebody stole it. Should I call the police? Silence on the phone. Then I heard her say in a very calm voice, Whoever stole your truck parked it in our driveway. I then remembered I was driving her car. I tried to chuckle within, but I knew that this incident would hang in our house for months to come and I have Mr. Murphy to thank for that. It was such a horri c week, and I was so deep in trouble with my Better Half, I decided to take her out Friday night for a nice meal on the town. I took her to her favorite restaurant, and we ordered our supper, then set back and kind of sighed the week away. Maybe all that could go wrong has gone wrong, and the week was about to turn around. We chatted; I tried to skew the conversation away from running out of gas and misplacing my truck. Then the waitress came with our meal. I was ready to settle down, enjoy a scrumptious meal and end the week on a happy note. The waitress set my wifes plate in front of her, and she smiled. Then the waitress set my plate in front of me, and I freaked out. For some reason the waitress got my order mixed up with somebody elses order and right in the middle of my plate was a pile of broccoli. The only hope I have is that it cannot get any worse than this. I think David, the psalmist, understood this when he wrote, ... weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5 KJV). As bad as it gets, as a Christian I have some great things to look forward to in Jesus Christ. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

JO hH NSON OBITS from page B5 From Staff Reports Skip Foster, a veteran publisher and Florida na tive, will be the next publisher of the Northwest Florida Daily News and oversee weekly newspapers in Milton, Crestview, Destin and Walton County. Friday morning’s announcement followed a nearly two-month search that drew candidates from across the country and end ed with the hiring of Foster, publisher of the Shelby Star in Cleveland County, N.C., since 2007. “I’m excited,” said Rog er Quinn, central regional publisher for Halifax Me dia Group, which also owns the Shelby Star. “We looked across the country and found that the best candi date was one of our own. “He has a prov en track record of not just leading award-winning newspapers, but of making a news paper — and him self — an integral part of the community it serves.” Before assuming the publisher’s role at the Shel by Star, Foster served as its editor for 10 years. During that time it was part of the chain of newspapers that included the Northwest Florida Daily News, giving him familiarity with the “unbelievable” beauty of the region and its newspa pers. “I am honored to lead such a tremendous team in this growing and vibrant market,” Foster said. “No one provides better content and better marketing solu tions than The Daily News. “I can’t wait to get to know this community,” he continued. “My favorite part of being publisher is connecting the newspaper with readers, businesses and organizations in the markets we serve.” Foster leaves a legacy of community involvement in Shelby. Just this month, he was awarded the H. Eugene LeGrand Lifetime Achieve ment award from the Unit ed Way of Cleveland Coun ty. He was also named most outstanding volunteer on the 2007 United Way cam paign and the 2010 volun teer of the year for the or ganization. In 2009, Foster found ed “Connect, Commit to Change,” a community event which brings togeth er two groups: agencies which help children and new volunteers. The effort was launched in the wake of a shooting death in Shelby, after which a Star reporter heard a young child mat ter-of-factly ask “Who got killed?” Foster wrote a col umn asking the community to commit to doing more for the community’s children. A board was formed and last year, during the nowannual event, more than 200 volunteers signed com mitment cards to help one of the more than 50 agen cies that help children. Foster has also served on the board of the Cleve land County Chamber and the legislative committee of the N.C. Press Association. He has served two stints on the vestry of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer and is a member of the Shelby Rotary Club. At The Star, he helped launch and sustain a con tent innovation project that earned the paper in ternational attention. In 2007, Foster was invited to speak in Paris, France, about The Star’s forays into multimedia journal ism. Foster was a 2002 Ethics Fellow with the Poynter Institute in St. Pe tersburg, Fla., and helped write Poynter’s “Journal ism without Scandal” re port in 2003. A native of Lakeland, Foster began his career as a sports writer in Hickory, N.C., in 1988, after gradu ating from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn. He moved to The Gaston Gazette in Gas tonia, N.C., in 1989 and eventually was promoted to managing editor. Foster is married to District Court Judge Anna F. (Dina) Foster, who will be resigning her seat to relocate to the panhandle. They have three children: Mary Frances, 18; Mat thew, 15; and Will, 11. New publisher named for Northwest Florida Daily News, weeklies SS KIP FOSTER Special to the News CH IPLEIPLE Y — Self-advo cates in Washington-Hol mes Counties are thanking Gov. Rick Scott for signing Senate Bill 142, the Intel lectual Disabilities Bill, into law last week in Tal lahassee. The bill, which was passed unanimously by the Florida Legisla ture in April, removes the phrase “mental retarda tion” from state statutes and replaces it with “intel lectual disabilities.” The changes take effect on July 1. The Arc of Washing ton-Holmes and The Arc of Florida, a non-prot or ganization that advocates on behalf of individuals with intellectual and de velopmental disabilities, spent three years work ing to pass the Intellectual Disabilities Bill. Senate Bill 142 was sponsored by Sen. Thad Altman (R-Mel bourne.) The House ver sion of the bill, House Bill 1119, was sponsored by Rep. Janet Adkins (R-Fer nandina Beach.) “Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature are to be commended for taking a stand against the R-word,” said Sandy Pritchard, ex ecutive director of Arc of Washington-Holmes Coun ties and board member of The Arc of Florida. “This is a signicant step forward in the ght to end bullying against people with intel lectual disabilities.” “Mental retardation” was once considered a val id medical term, but over the years, it was twisted into a hurtful slang word that promotes negative stereotypes of people with intellectual disabilities. The American Association on Intellectual and Devel opmental Disabilities and American Psychiatric As sociation changed their ofcial diagnoses from “mental retardation” to “intellectual disability.” Federal health, edu cation and labor policy statutes were changed in 2010 when Congress unanimously passed and President Obama signed “Rosa’s Law.” The Social Security Administration recently announced its in tent to make the change to its ofcial “Listing of Im pairments.” For more information on the End the R-word in Florida campaign, visit http://www.norword.org.

Two of the most dangerous people are those who have a gun and dont know how to use it and those who have a gun and think they do know how to use it, Porter said. It is an unfortunate reality that there is violence happening everywhere. Its our job to take those who want to defend themselves out and teach them what they need to know. The more training you get, the better off youre going to be. Impact Firearms uses a range courtesy of the Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce, Porter said. Sheriff Tim Brown allows us to use their range, he said. Thats a big deal when a sheriff is that invested in the safety and well-being of the people he serves and protects. Were here to do anything we can do to help you better protect yourself and advise you on your next gun purchase and concealed weapon permit. Porter said some would be surprised at the number of residents in Holmes County who have a concealed weapon permits.CECILIA SPEARS | Times-AdvertiserEntering into week three of the Holmes County Public Librarys summer reading program, local children were entertained and educated by the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth about the history of Florida, which is following the continued theme of Viva Florida, celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida. The Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth also involved the children in their production, and in this scene the children were recruited as members of a crew to establish the rst and failed settlement in Pensacola. For more photos and the full story, see Page B1.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Bonifay City Council approved paying $34,000 on Monday for an engineering design fee to go into the second phase of the citys on-going sewer/ water line replacement and update project. Shakil Amin, a representative from Hatch Mott MacDonald, said the city was ready to go into phase two of the replacement and update project. Phase two includes laying 14,000 feet of six-inch linear pipe, paid for with a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. There are no matching funds required, Bonifay City Grant Writer Bob Jones said. With the city purchasing the engineering design fee, it gives the city considerable points towards the grant. Council Member Richard Woodham requested something be done about the water park at Middlebrooks Park, which is no longer working. We need to call the manufacturer and see about getting an estimate on how much itll cost to x it, Woodham said. The kids are missing it, and its getting hot. Jones suggested getting a grant to repair it, and in the meantime, the city should calculate the cost to bypass computer programming and operate it manually until then.Water/sewer project ready for phase 2 BONIFAY CITY COUNCILBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County District School Board approved of a contract agreement with the architect rm Clemons, Rutherford & Associates for the design of the new Bonifay Middle School and Bonifay Elementary School during its June 18 meeting.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, June 26, 2013The law is complicated on where you are permitted to have a concealed weapon, but theres a simple way of breaking it down, he said. No government buildings, which include schools, post ofces, city councils, board of county commissioners, etc. and any bars where they sell alcoholic beverages. Now if this is a restaurant with a bar you can be in the restaurant but you cant be any where near the bar. He said 33 states recognize the Florida concealed weapon permit and the states closest to Florida that do not are Illinois and Nevada. My biggest concern is anything to have to do with Alabama, especially Dothan, Ala., Porter said. They have whats considered a concealed rearms permit and only recognize Floridas permit if you are in possession of a rearm. If you have a concealed weapons permit and a gun, you are safe in Alabama; however, if you have a pocket knife with a blade over three inches, you will be arrested, and trust me they are looking for Florida state tags and any excuse imaginable. Porter also touched on ammunition safety, saying ammunition kept in a cool and climate controlled environment could stay good for years, however ammunition in a concealed weapon in a vehicle or left in the chamber of the gun should be replaced every year for new ammunition, and if theres any discoloration then the ammunition should be disposed because the casing has been compromised, and it could lead to the gun exploding when attempting to re it. We get quite a few people from other counties because we are one of the few places that care, Porter said. Were not just in it for the money. We want to make sure you know how to shoot, and we want to make sure you learn something. Classes are a standard fee of $75 plus ammunition and are held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, however, times will change for summer because of the heat. For more information, contact Impact Firearms at 547-2051. All contestants ages 10 and younger will receive a crown. There will be a trophy for rst and second runner-ups in all categories. If your child holds a current title, they are welcome to compete in the next category this year. None of the judges for this pageant are local. To compete in the photogenic category, the application and photo must be turned in no later than 24 hours before the pageant. No photos will be accepted the day of the pageant. Photos must be at least a 4x6 but no larger than an 8x10. Winners will receive a trophy. There will be no shifting of age groups on the day of the pageant.

IN BRIEF from page A1 SCHOOLsS from page A1Dixon said he was very positive of the projects success to bring these muchneeded schools to the area. Weve gone over every possible positive aspect and impact these new schools will bring to our ever-growing area, Dixon said. For example, theres the possibility of a new water tower for the school that would have a positive impact on the surrounding residents. This is a very benecial endeavor, and I have a strong inclination that it will be positively received. The board approved of the purchase of 11 new school buses under the contract agreement that it is paid through the Ebro Greyhound Park. Weve had this contract with Ebro for over 29 years, and they have always been faithful in keeping that contract, Dixon said. It has been over ve years since we purchased buses and we are running out of spares. These buses are also longer; sitting an additional eight students per bus, which is needed for growth that weve been seeing in Holmes County. Board also approved of a 4.9 percent base salary increase for all instructional and noninstructional employees. I wanted to say that I went to Mobile, Ala., and watched our BETA Clubs perform, said Board member Shirley Owens. They have put a lot of hard work and dedication into their performances, and some of them placed very well. Im very proud of them. The next meeting of the Holmes County District School Board will be held at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, July 2 at the Holmes County District School Board ofce at 701 East Pennsylvania Ave., Bonifay. GUN sSAFETY from page A1The council agreed to get an assessment before proceeding further. Mayor Lawrence Cloud requested City Attorney Lucas Taylor get the county building inspector to look at and possibly condemn the Kevin Fleming building on the corner of Waukesha Street and Virginia Avenue. After conrming the building was the old Neptune World pet shop, Taylor agreed to do some research and bring a suggestion back at the next meeting. Taylor also reported he spoke with the attorney heading the BP Oil Settlement and informed the council they would not be eligible because they were not awarding anything to government entities. After much debate about the possible settlement being given to other local government entities, Taylor agreed to look further into the matter and bring it before the council at the next meeting at 6 p.m. on July 8 at the Bonifay City Hall.From Staff ReportsCHIP P LEY A Caryville man was arrested on charges of porn distribution, according to a Washington County Sheriffs Ofce report.

U.S. 90. This year the sing will host The Nelons and Evangelist David Ring. Also appearing will be the Four Calvary and One Heart. With many awards and accolades including three Grammy Nominations, Six Gospel Music Association Dove Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, The Nelons continue to produce 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 Homecoming Video Series. During the rare times when the Nelons are not on the road, they serve as Artists in Residence at Jacksonvilles Trinity Baptist Church. As they travel, theyre Ambassadors for Trinity Baptist College, where Amber attends. For Kelly Nelon Clark (original group member), singing alongside her husband Jason Clark (song-writer and group arranger), and daughter Amber Nelon Thompson (vocal power-house), this is a full-circle moment as she reflects on the countless nights she shared the stage with her Hall of Fame Father, Rex Nelon. Nationally known speaker David Ring will be speaking at the Bonifay sing. Born in Jonesboro, Ark., David was deprived of oxygen for 18 minutes at birth leaving him with cerebral palsy. Orphaned 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, physical challenges of this magnitude would prove to be a tombstone. For David Ring, this coming of age was and remains a milestone. Although difficult at first to understand, Ring quickly captures his audiences with his quick wit and warm personality. He always focuses on an individuals need to conquer the personal challenges and adversities of life. As one who has not been stifled by his physical limitations, he clearly states his challenge to everyone. I have Cerebral Palsywhats your problem? asks Ring. Tickets are $10 in advance and $13 at the door for adults, ages 612 are $5 advance and $7 at the door, and ages 5 and younger are free.

The correct date of death for John Julius Fussell, is June 10 and the date of the funeral is June 12. Traditionally, my topic for Perrys Prattle just prior to the week-end of the watermelon festival, is devoted to the festival event. In the columns eleventh year of existence, the big question in the writers mind is: just how much more can be written about the gigantic watermelon event which, without question, has put Chipley and Washington County on the map? It seems that history buffs want to know that the upcoming festival is the 57th one and the buffs still want to know its origin. J. E. (Red) Davis. longtime Washington County Agriculture Extension Agent, was the rst chairman of the festivities and remained in that job 20 years. The prime movers in the earlier days include Ross Deal, on whose property the rst event was held, which later evolved into todays mammoth two day extravaganza. Your writer was drafted into the job of chairman in 1976 and served for 30 years. The activities of the daylong event in those years were con ned to three main events. The Beauty Pageant, directed by Pat Balboni and, later Aldine Adams, was a main attraction. South AlabamaNorthwest Florida Horsemans Approved Horse Show was staged at the Agri-Center Arena, and was chaired by Washington County newcomer, Dick Kneiss. The third event was the Big Watermelon Contest and Auction, with melon games for children, plus serving refreshing red ripe sweet watermelon to our guests. Secondary activities included a Free Fun Night on Friday night preceding the big day. Credit is given to Lamar Townsend for providing the improvised stage for this fun event and to Dalton Carter, who could take a small budget of $150 and provide quality musical entertainment to ll a full evening of exciting fun and frolic. The Shrine Club Pancake Festival, the 5K road race and the big parade through downtown Chipley, joined in the festive occasion early in its history. After my departure as chairman seven years ago, county judge Colby Peel, agreed to take the reins and, as the late journalist and national newscaster, Paul Harvey would report, chairman Peel is presently carrying out the rest of the story. Other key people involved in the humble beginnings of the festival were Austin F. Townsend, Walker Hughen, Henry Hargrove, V. J. Collins, Andrew (Andy) Grif n and Farrell Nelson. Now days, we depend upon prison inmate labor to do the grass cutting and landscaping of the grounds at the Agriculture Center in preparation for the yearly festival. In earlier times, Maxwell Hudson, an employee of the county, had those duties, plus other details of carrying out the massive custodial chores of staging the festival, plus the clean up that followed. He was fortunate to have a young family, mostly girls, whom he enlisted to assist him in the task of carrying out the watermelon festival. They were not paid for their labors, and it has been my privilege to personally thank them for their voluntary and faithful assistance so many years ago. The brochure advertising the watermelon festival in 1978 and 1979 was printed on a legal size sheet of colorful paper. It was personally typed in the Agriculture Center Of ce and duplicated on copy machine available at that time. Later, the advertising yers were more professionally printed and folded for easy handling and for mailing. This style of promoting the festival returned to the full length, legal size paper in 2003, when advertising was sold for the rst time to businesses, lending agencies, and others in order to bring suf cient money to pay better known talent to our event, thus attracting more visitors. This is the year that we hired the IBMA Entertainer of the Year, The Del McCoury Band, which produced a record turnout in the air conditioned auditorium for a stellar concert that is still being talked about to this day. Dr. Shane Collins, of WPAP Radio Fame in Panama City, was the MC for this mammoth year of top entertainment. As chairman, I told the committee that I was not ready to make public the price required to attract this popular bluegrass/ bluegrass gospel group to our festival. After it went well, and with ample money to pay all the expenses of the event, the gure of $10,000 was revealed. For the past seven years, this gure pales to the total expenditures of $35,000 now required to attract and pay all the top quality entertainment that the present leadership continues to bring to the historic watermelon festival. Where can you receive a full weekend of fabulous talent, performing free and in an air conditioned facility, with organizers furnishing free slices of delicious, sweet and cool watermelon for you the visitor to enjoy? A new style, colorful promotional yer was introduced by the current chairman this year. A broader coverage with the watermelon festivals own web page has produced over 220,000 hits with the festival more than a week away, according to Chairman Colby Peel. Entertainment and wholesome fun and festivities is the order of the two day event, June 28 and 29, 2013 and I hope all of you are making plans to attend. The Washington County Historical Society Museum at 685 7th. Street will be open Friday, June 28 and Saturday June 29 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. expressly for selling the Heritage of Washington County Books in a last call effort to close out sales of the 4th. Printing. See you all next week. PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Perry Wells, Chairman rides in his 1988 Chevrolet Pick Up Truck with improvised signing and without the colorful, sprawling umbrella, which became his trademark covering from the heat many years ago. His wife, Hester, is shown as his driver.The origin of the Watermelon FestivalIn a recent ceremony at the University Center in Tallahassee, Jedd McFatter received top state recognition for saving Florida $400, 000. His innovative work as state training administrator for the Long-term Care Ombudsman Program at the Department of Elder Affairs earned him the Prudential-Davis Award. In addition to the cost saving to the state, McFatter increased the efficiency of the department by installing on-line training certification programs for volunteers which cut training time from 4 days to one. The award affirms Jedds philosophy that government should be as efficient as possible in using tax payers money. Government should be a good steward of public money, he said. A $500.00 cash award accompanies the honor. McFatter is now working with the National Ombudsman Resource Center in Washington D.C. to develop an online training system based on Floridas model, according to Elder Affairs spokesman. Prudential Davis Awards were begun 25 years ago by the Davis brothers who founded Winn Dixie and Tax Watch. It recognizes state employees who have shown outstanding ways to serve the citizens of Florida in a more efficient and cost-effective way. Twenty-eight additional state employees also received recognition at the banquet where Gov. Rick Scott praised the recipients for their productivity improvements. A total of 468 awards will be given this year statewide for cost saving improvements of $514 million Jedd grew up in Bonifay the only son of the late James Edward McFatter (Coach Mac) and Madaline Steverson McFatter. He attended Bonifay Elementary, Bonifay Middle School, and graduated with honors from Holmes County High School in 1998 where he starred in athletics, especially basketball. Jedd graduated from Florida State University with a degree in English/creative writing. After studying for a semester in England, he then attended Denver Seminary where he earned a Masters degree in The Philosophy of Religion. After his marriage to Michelle Liles, they served in Uganda for two years as missionaries in the Food For The Hungry organization. The couple has two daughters, Leora and Analise Rael named for a girl Michelle helped in Uganda. They currently reside in Tallahassee. In addition to his work with the Department of Elder Affairs, Jedd is pursuing a Doctorate at Florida State University. The McFatter family have contributed greatly to our community. Beloved Coach Mac touched the lives of thousands of kids and young people as he coached all Physical Education classes at Bonifay Elementary School and Bonifay Middle School, as well as coaching basketball at the high school and assisting with the football program there. He organized bicycle safety derbies. He coordinated field days. He directed Vacation Bible School recreation. He drove the bus and chaperoned for hundreds of school and church trips. Ill never forget two trips to Ridgecrest with Coach Mac as the church bus driver. Once we broke down on the interstate and had to wait on the side of the hill for a charter to come and get us. Another time, we broke down in Columbus, Ga. We spent hours at an Arbys where our youth group entertained the patrons with several acapela songs. This many talented family have been assets to our community and continue to be in the places where they make their adult homes. All the McFatter girls which include Joni Kitching, Jana Manuel, Jill Chester, and Jami Kimbell are quite talented musically and often added to our worship services at First Baptist Church when they were growing up. Mother Madaline, a multitalented lady, taught special education courses at Holmes County High until her retirement, but continues as a frequent substitute teacher. The McFatter family mean a lot to Bonifay and Holmes County and we are very proud to see Jedd recognized at the state level.James Edward McFatter Jr (Jedd) wins Prudential-Davis AwardHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison His innovative work as state training administrator for the Long-term Care Ombudsman Program at the Department of Elder Affairs earned him the Prudential-Davis Award.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, June 26, 2013By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com WAUSAU An audit of Wausaus nances shows the towns nances are improving, but the water department is working on a very tight budget. Hilton Galloway of the CPA rm Carr, Riggs & Ingram LLC of Enterprise, Ala., told the Town Council Thursday the town showed $75,000 in assets and $32,000 in decits for a balance of $42,000 in unassigned funds. When? Youre right where you should be, but you should think about trying to build up some reserves, Galloway said. The water department revenues covered the departments expenses, but just barely. Wausaus nancial health hinges on the performance of its water department. The town has so much wrapped up in assets; you need to address that, Galloway said. I understand you raised water rates last year, and you will need to address that again this year. You cannot go to sleep on the water department. Rate increases will help keep the balance sheets in the black, but Mayor BJ Phillips said he hopes the town can get ahead to the point it doesnt have to raise rates every year. The town received grants last year that inated the 2012 revenue streams. Its hard to put your arms around the gures of 2012 and get a real good idea of what you really had, Galloway said. The water department ended the year with a $183 decit, which Galloway said was not enough to say or do anything about. With the current rates, the water department is taking in just enough to operate. Eventually, you are going to need to make repairs, or buy equipment, Galloway said. That is when you will really need to have some reserves in the water department. The auditor recommended the council members remain diligent. You have to be cognizant of what the water department is doing each month, Galloway said. You almost have the perfect storm in operating by taking in just exactly what you need to operate the system. City Clerk Margaret Riley also presented the council with an advertisement for approval. The town will be searching for a new city clerk, and Riley suggested they begin advertising as soon as possible for her replacement. Riley announced her intention to retire in September during the June 13 town council meeting. It looks like a large job description, but its a large job, Phillips said. We definitely want to nd someone who is well qualied.By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The 57th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival kicks off Friday, June 28, at Pals Park with concerts by Andy Griggs at 6 p.m. and Joe Dife at 7:30 p.m. This type of quality entertainment is really special, Festival Chairman Colby Peel said Thursday at the Washington County Chamber of Commerce meeting. Peel said he has received numerous calls from surrounding communities asking how it is possible for Washington County to put on such an event for free. For a community our size to be able to bring in acts like this and have the event free really says a lot about the commitment by this community to the festival, Peel said. Gates will open at 5 p.m. Friday at Pals Park, and the event is free and open to the public. Andy Griggs is an American country music artist. He has released three albums for RCA Records Nashville You Wont Ever Be Lonely, Freedom and This I Gotta See and a fourth, The Good Life, for Montage Music Group. These four albums have accounted for 13 singles on the Billboard country charts, of which the highest are You Wont Ever Be Lonely and Shes More, both of which peaked at No. 2. He also charted Grow Young With You, a cut from the soundtrack to the lm Where the Heart Is. Joe Dife is an American country music singer known for his ballads and novelty songs. Dife has charted 35 songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, including ve No. 1 singles: his debut release Home. If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets), Third Rock from the Sun, Pickup Man and Bigger Than the Beatles. In addition to these cuts, he has 12 other top 10 singles and 10 other top 40 hits on the same chart. He also co-wrote singles for Holly Dunn, Tim McGraw and Jo Dee Messina and has recorded with Mary Chapin Carpenter, George Jones and Marty Stuart.

Special to Halifax MediaStarting June 30, saltwater species can be targeted with a spearing device in Collier County state waters for the first time in more than 60 years. The recent repeal of rules that prohibited spearing should facilitate the harvest of nonnative invasive lionfish that are negatively impacting Floridas native fish and wildlife. Spearfishing is among the most effective methods for lionfish control and removal, along with the use of hand-held nets. These changes were approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at its April meeting when Commissioners repealed a rule that prohibited spearing and another rule that prohibited using an artificial light while spearfishing or gigging in Florida state waters off Collier County (from shore to 9 nautical miles). The Collier Board of County Commissioners sent a letter to the FWC in February requesting these repeals shortly after the Jan. 13 hook-andline capture of the first lionfish to be documented in state waters off the county. The ban on spearing and using a light while spearfishing or gigging was put in place in the early 1950s, before the development of current statewide spearfishing regulations, and are just a few of the many Special Acts of Local Application that were put in place by the Florida Legislature, prior to creation of the FWC and one of its predecessors, the Marine Fisheries Commission. All current statewide regulations on the use of spears will apply in state waters off Collier County. Spearing is not allowed in freshwater or when targeting freshwater species; within 100 yards of a public swimming beach, any commercial or public fishing pier or any part of a bridge from which public fishing is allowed; within 100 feet of any part of a jetty that is above the waters surface except for the last 500 yards of a jetty that extends more than 1,500 yards from the shoreline; in Monroe County from Long Key north to the Dade County line; and in any body of water under the jurisdiction of the Department of Environmental Protections Division of Recreation and Parks. Using powerheads, bangsticks and rebreathers is also not allowed. The following species cannot be speared: billfish, spotted eagle ray, sturgeon, manta ray, sharks, bonefish, tarpon, goliath grouper, snook, blue crab, Nassau grouper, spotted seatrout, red drum, weakfish, stone crab, pompano, African pompano, permit, tripletail, lobster and many species of ornamental tropical fish such as surgeonfish, trumpetfish, angelfish, butterflyfish, porcupinefish, cornetfish, squirrelfish, trunkfish, damselfish, parrotfish, pipefish, seahorse, puffers and triggerfish, with the exception of gray and ocean triggerfish. A recreational fishing license is not required for anyone targeting lionfish with hand-held nets, a pole spear, a Hawaiian sling or any spearing device that is specifically designed for harvesting lionfish. All other spearfishers must have a recreational fishing license, unless otherwise exempt from the requirement, and all regulations apply, including seasons, bag limits and size limits.

Lake Victor is a popular, 130-acre FWC-managed impoundment in Holmes County. Since the impoundment was constructed, the FWC has stocked sh, managed vegetation, provided boating access, created sh attractors and spawning beds and otherwise strove to create quality shing. So, what happened, and could it happen to a lake near you? Unfortunately, it seems like a case of nature taking its course and, yes, it happens throughout the state each summer. In this case, it appears that heavy rainfalls ushed organic matter into the lake and the organic matter began to decompose, resulting in a low-dissolved-oxygen (DO) sh kill. As in most such cases, the die-off did not kill all of the sh, and when the water cleared and the sun came out, oxygen levels recovered and biologists observed numerous surviving sh. This type of sh kill is pretty much a natural occurrence. They are especially prevalent in summer, when a number of factors can come together to deplete the oxygen that is dissolved in the water. Fish absorb this oxygen from the water using their gills. A healthy lake or river normally has approximately 7 to 9 parts per million (ppm) of oxygen, which is an ideal level for most sh. When the water temperature is lower, more oxygen dissolves into it. When temperatures rise, DO levels naturally drop due to reduced solubility. If the level drops below 5 ppm, many sh start showing adverse impacts, and below 2 ppm it can be lethal, if it lasts very long. Some species of sh are better adapted to low DO conditions, such as bow n or gar, but most of our freshwater sun shes (bass, bream, and crappie) are less tolerant. Aquatic plants produce most of the oxygen in lakes through photosynthesis, which occurs when green (chlorophyll) cells convert light into energy. However, at night or when there is inadequate light, plants use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Additional oxygen enters the water from the atmosphere by diffusion. In addition to sh using oxygen and plants removing it at night, a major demand on oxygen comes from decomposition of dead plant and animal tissue (organic matter). Area residents first contacted the FWC about the fish kill in Lake Victor on April 17, after seeing dying fish floating. Fisheries biologists responded immediately and determined the DO level in much of the lake with pea-green water was 0.0 to 2.0 ppm, enough to cause the kill. Often, descriptions of lakes being pea-green relate to algal blooms, which are another insidious response to nutrients (decaying plant material, or organic fertilizers flushed from yards or crops by rain). These blooms block light to rooted plants so they do not produce as much oxygen. When algae die, they further increase the bacterial bloom. Biologists visited daily for several weeks, documenting the number of dead fish and concluded that few adult game fish survived. However, they observed some schools of fingerling bass and bream from the spring spawn and a few bass on beds. We know there was over 19 inches of rain in the area from January to April, and the lake got its share of rain and runoff, said Chris Paxton, the FWCs freshwater fisheries administrator for northwest Florida. He said the FWC was in constant contact with the Florida Department of Health and the Department of Environmental Protection and that FWC staff accompanied investigators from the Department of Agriculture to inspect the lake during the fish kill. There was no visual evidence of chemical pollution, toxic algal blooms or signs of disease among the dead fish. This is something all of us, including the residents around the lake and our own fisheries management staff, wish never happened but in time the lake will recover, Paxton said. Once oxygen levels build back up, the FWC will restock the lake with fingerling sport fish. Bream and crappie populations can respond within one to two years but it may take three to four years for significant bass populations to rebuild. FWC biologists will monitor the lake and consider all fisheries management tools that may quicken the lakes recovery. The good news is there is no evidence of any form of contamination that would prevent the lake from recovering. In addition, reduced competition often allows young sport fish to grow rapidly after kills of this type. To learn more about fish kills and what you can do to help prevent them, visit MyFWC.com/Contact. Although most summer fish kills relate to natural processes, the FWC requests your support in reporting fish kills to the FWC Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511 or at the above link.Special to Halifax MediaGag grouper will open for recreational harvest in most Gulf of Mexico state waters and all Gulf federal waters July 1. The same day, the season will close in state waters off the coast of Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties. The gag grouper recreational harvest season in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters, not including Franklin, Jefferson, Wakulla, Taylor and Monroe counties, will remain open through Dec. 3. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties were open from April 1 through June 30 and will not be open during the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season. Monroe County is also excluded from the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season because it is included in the Atlantic rules for gag grouper. Gag grouper caught in federal waters during the July 1-through-Dec. 3 season may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. (See maps.) The four-county region includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. The FWC manages marine sh from the shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico. The FWC is working with Floridas anglers to rebuild gag grouper populations in the Gulf of Mexico back to strong, sustainable levels. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits are 22 inches total length and two gag grouper per person. To learn more, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on Saltwater, Recreational Regulations and Gulf Grouper.Special to Halifax MediaIts that time of year again to unfurl the dive ag, put a mask on and head to the coast to collect some bay scallops. The recreational season is open in Gulf of Mexico state waters (shore to 9 nautical miles) from the Pasco-Hernando county line to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County starting July 1. The season will remain open through Sept. 24, with the rst day of the closure on Sept. 25. The bag limit is two gallons of whole bay scallops or one pint of meat per person, per day, with a vessel limit of 10 gallons of whole bay scallops or a half-gallon of meat. Scallops may be collected by hand or with a landing or dip net. Scallops cannot be taken ashore outside of the open area. There is no commercial harvest for bay scallops in Florida state and federal waters. The average number of scallops observed during pre-season surveys doubled in Homosassa and St. Joseph Bay and increased slightly in Steinhatchee. The St. Marks average decreased substantially from June 2012, which was most likely due to effects from Tropical Storm Debby. Be safe when diving for scallops. Be sure to stay within 300 feet of a properly displayed divers-down ag when scalloping in open water and within 100 feet of a properly displayed divers-down ag if on a river, inlet or navigation channel. Boat operators traveling within 300 feet of a divers-down ag in open water or 100 feet of one on a river, inlet or navigational channel must slow to idle speed. Done for the day? Help FWCs scallop researchers by completing an online survey at http://svy.mk/ bayscallops. Harvesters can indicate where they harvest scallops, how many they collect and how long it takes to harvest them. Participants can email BayScallops@MyFWC.com to ask questions or send additional information.

SPORTS ASectionBy BRAD MILNERHalifax Media Group Prospects from the high school, junior college and Division I baseball levels highlighted the area selections in the Major League Baseball Draft on June 8. Karsten Whitson was selected for the second time since departing Chipley. He was taken No. 9 overall by San Diego in 2010, but he turned down a reported $2.1 million signing bonus and attended Florida, where he had a stellar freshman season on the mound. Inconsistency plagued him his sophomore year and he missed last season after having shoulder surgery. Whitson was taken by Washington in the 37th round. He likely will return to Florida for a redshirt junior season. Gulf Coasts Tyler Dial was the rst selection with area ties on the nal day, going to San Diego in the 15th round and 448th overall. He joined teammate Tevin Johnson, who was chosen in the 31st round by Pittsburgh. Logan Quimuyog was the lone area high-schooler taken Saturday. The Mosley graduate was taken by the New York Mets in the 39th and next-to-last round. Former Chipola star and Florida State closer Robby Coles rounded out the area picks with a 28th-round selection by the Mets. Coles joined teammates Peter Miller (Los Angeles Dodgers), Marcus Davis (San Diego) and Scott Sitz (Detroit) as third-day draftees. Other Gators selected were Taylor Ratliff (Arizona), John Magliozzi (New York Mets), Cody Dent (Washington) and Jeff Driskel (Boston).

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 Page 7By JASON SHOOTHalifax Media PANAMA CITY BEACH Sisters they are not, but Eden Hawes and Casey Justice swear they can read each others mind. We call it twin telepathy even though we arent related and dont look alike, Justice said. The teenagers clearly enjoy some kind cerebral connection on the court as a highly successful beach volleyball team. Theyve collected ve tournament titles and a pristine 33-0 record since March, many of those victories recorded against players considerably older. They are set to travel to the west coast next month and will compete in a pair of tournaments, most notably the AAU Junior Olympic Beach Volleyball Championships in Hermosa Beach, Calif., on July 27-30. Justice is 14 and Hawes is 13. The girls, both of whom are 5-foot-6, are enrolling at Arnold as freshmen in the fall. They still can count on one hand the number of years theyve been playing volleyball. But their progression in the sport has been remarkable, particularly since they didnt team up on the beach until two years ago. Hawes and Justice have dominated every event theyve entered this year. They were crowned 18U champions in a local junior tournament in May, won the 14-under title at an AAU tournament in Orlando, claimed the 16U championship at the Gulf Coast Region Tournament, and won the doubles title in the 16U age group in a Fudpuckers tournament. They even slipped in a four-man title at that Fudpuckers event. We were at a camp in Tampa and got a lot of questions like, How old are you? and How long have you been playing together? said Hawes, who turns 14 next month. Weve been playing together two years. We try to play older teams. Thats what (three-time Olympic champion) Kerri Walsh did. Thats what we try to do. Con rmed Arnold coach and athletic director Karisa Wesley: Theyre actually very advanced. ... They went to Orlando and went to the 14-under division and beat everyone very easily. They try to play up a level for the competition. Hawes has been selected to participate in the USA Volleyball Beach High Performance Program, an intensive program intended to develop players for collegiate and international play. Hawes will train with a select group of 15U players from across the nation, and she will head to California next month for that before pairing up with Justice again at junior nationals. I am very jealous, quipped Justice, who narrowly missed the age cutoff for the elite program. Ill be lonely, Hawes added, trying to console her friend. By the fourth day I think maybe Ill have a friend or two. Justice and Hawes admitted that if they were given a choice, they would prefer to play under the sun on a sand court rather than under the lights indoors. When youre indoors you have to stay in your little space, Justice said. Rest assured, though, they will suit up for Arnold next season. Wesley said she is looking at them on the varsity level. They love the game, Wesley said. They walk into the gym and go pick up a ball. Weve been doing morning workouts at 7 a.m., theres an open gym, theres beach training. They do all of that in one day. They are absolutely in love with volleyball whether its beach or indoors. Wesley said the two young players can expect to grow in coming years, both in terms of height and development. Justice and Hawes said they train on the sand with local beach player Kevin Jones. Kids have dreams, and right now their dream is to play beach volleyball at the college level, Wesley said. They work with the beach coach at Florida State (assistant coach Brian Corso). Theyve got exposure at the collegiate level and with those coaches as well.Local players go to Major League BaseballYoung volleyball players sweep older competitionHEATHER LEIPHART | The News HeraldCasey Justice, left, and Eden Hawes are 33-0 since March in ve tournament victories. www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com

LocalA8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, June 26, 2013Special to Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY Each 4th of July we celebrate our freedom. Members of the Bonifay Garden Club, Peggy La Plante, Eileen Wright, DiAnn Shores, Susan Pittman, Carla Templeton, and Garden Club President, Adonna Bartlett, took on project to spruce up the garden around the Blue Star Memorial marker, located on Hwy 90. Jack Marell, Superintendent with City of Bonifay has been very instrumental in helping with the project.  The Memorial honors those who have served and are currently serving in the military, to help protect our freedom. From our rst troops who fought to help America gain independence from England in the 1700s, to our present-day troops serving. We appreciate the sacrices our military make to help keep us, a free, democratic country. Adonna Bartlett, President of the Bonifay Garden Club said, with the placement of this Blue Star Memorial Marker and the added attention to the garden around the marker, we hope, will help to increase awareness of the Memorial and of the importance it plays to our military who play a role in defending our country and our rights as a democratic nation. The garden club most recently added knockout roses, purple lantana and a mix of other annuals and perennials. Along with the existing Natchez white crape myrtles the color tapestry will be colors of red, white and blue. National Garden Clubs, Inc. has placed Blue Star Markers in all 50 states to honor our armed forces. These markers are metal plaques that have a blue star at the top and the words A Tribute to the Armed Forces of America inscribed below the star. All honor is due them, who defend us from aggression, and help preserve our freedom. Begun in 1945, this program is one of the longest-running projects sponsored by National Garden Clubs, Inc. Unfortunately, many are not aware of the story behind, why, there are Blue Star Memorial Markers. Use of blue stars to honor our military began during World War I when Army Capt. Robert Queissner designed a rectangular banner 9 inches wide and 14 inches long. The banner had a white eld, red border and two blue stars in the center representing his two sons who were ghting in the war. He hung the banner in his front window where passers-by could see it and remember his sons and their dedication to keeping America free. His idea of honoring military family members serving in the war with a blue star banner soon caught on. By World War II, the blue star banner was hung in thousands of windows across America. If a family member was killed, the blue star was replaced with a gold one; and if a family member was injured or disabled, a silver star replaced the blue one. In 1944, the New Jersey State Council of Garden Clubs voted to beautify a stretch of U.S. Highway 22 with 8,000 dogwood trees in memory of American servicemen and women who had given their lives to protect our country during World War I and World War II. The Legislature of New Jersey voted to name this piece of highway Blue Star Drive in honor of the blue star banners own in so many windows during both world wars. In 1945, National Council of Garden Clubs, Inc. chose to adopt New Jerseys Blue Star Drive as a national project. They changed the name to Blue Star Memorial Highway Project and began placing Blue Star Memorial Highway Markers along highways across America. The area around each plaque was landscaped by the garden club sponsoring the memorial. Thus began a ribbon of living memorial plantings across America in honor of our troops. While we go about our daily lives or while we sleep, the men and women of the Armed Forces y our skies, sail our seas and guard our shores, ensuring our safety. They stand ready at a moments notice to defend our Country. We must not forget them, and we do not. We remember with every step of the Honor Guard at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We remember with every drumbeat on the Fourth of July. We pledge allegiance to our ag and We remember. At the sound of Reveille, we remember, and as the last lingering note of Taps resounds in the distance, we remember. The Blue Star marker is dedicated to the honor and glory of all those men and women who have served, are now serving and will serve in the armed forces of this great nation. This marker stands as a symbol for All to see, lest we forget, those who help to keep us free. Adonna Bartlet, said, Because of increased U.S. military activity during the last few years, garden clubs throughout the nation have added more Blue Star Markers to show our troops we support their efforts and appreciate their sacrices. This program has been active through the years a tting tribute always and especially now. To date, over 3,000 markers have been placed by garden clubs throughout the U.S. The Bonifay Garden Club has been in active membership since 1951, coming to the close of their 62nd year of continuous membership. The club meets September through May on the second Friday of each month. Interesting programs and pilgrimages are scheduled throughout the year. The club has sponsored beautication efforts throughout the city. For more information on the club and its activities, email Adonna Bartlett, incoming president at adonna. bartlett@yahoo.com.

Raciappa is a business coach with ActionCOACH of Tallahassee, and he was the guest speaker at Thursdays Washington County Chamber of Commerce meeting. Small business owners tend to work harder and longer hours than most people, and they also tend to work more than their employees, Raciappa said. Having employees to whom tasks can be delegated can go a long way toward improving the quality of life for a business owner or supervisor. There are a lot of denitions of success, but health and happiness are two of the most important, Raciappa said. Dividing up work not only multiplies the results, it frees up the business owner or supervisor to have free time to enjoy life. When you reach a milestone, even a small one, you should celebrate it, Raciappa said. That goes for business as well as life, and while supervisors may be quick to compliment or praise an employee, they should also be able to commend themselves on a job well done. Raciappa will present a seminar for Chamber members from 9 to 11 a.m. July 17 at the Northwest Florida Community Hospital Specialty Center, and attendance is free for members. One of the topics will be Raciappas SYSTEM, an acronym for Saving You Stress Time Energy and Money. Leverage is all about SYSTEM, Raciappa said. The program is based on Bradley Sugars book Instant Systems, which educates entrepreneurs on the benets of systemizing work processes within their businesses so that the enterprises can function without the direct interference of the business owner, according to the website instantsystems.net. Sugars is a business coach, author and CEO of ActionCOACH, which is the worlds number one business and executive coaching rm home to more than 1,000 ofces in 26 countries, according to the website. Focus on making one improvement in your life a week, Raciappa said. A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. If you make one goal a week, even a small one, and you do that every week, theres no limit to how far you can go. Youll be amazed. Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett also invited members from Holmes and Jackson County chambers to attend the seminar. We need to be more interactive and support each others events, Everett said. Call the Washington County Chamber of Commerce at 638-4157 to register for the seminar.Garden Club takes on marker project Business coach: Health and happiness also parts of success

By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Children were entertained, educated and participated in the adventures of a married couple visiting Florida on vacation in a production presented by the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth in honor of Viva Florida, celebrating the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida, which was held at the Holmes County Public Library during its third week of their summer reading program on June 20. The scene was on a beach in Florida, and as this vacationing couple tried to get ready to enjoy the beach, they came upon a treasure chest lled with ancient artifacts that when worn would transform them into famous characters who were important in the history of the discovery and establishment of Florida. Children of all ages were pulled into participating in song and role as the history of Florida was played out for them on stage. I thought it was absolutely the most amazing show weve had in years, assistant director Ann Leavins said. The children loved it. Both the younger and the older children were enthralled from beginning to end because it was both historical and fun. Leavins said the husband and wife duo have had the business of the Atlantic Coast Theater for Youth for more than 16 years and were called on by the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs to develop this program especially for Viva Florida. They write their own scripts and do over a year of research before ever putting on a production, Leavins said. I was amazed about how much I learned about Florida. Like for instance, I thought St. Augustine was the oldest settlement in Florida and come to nd out its the oldest surviving settlement in Florida. Even the story about where the legend of Pocahontas came from was a rst for me, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 866-314-3769 When the time comes for a family member to move into a nursing home or retirement community, many worry their loved ones will begin to feel lonely and unneeded as time goes by. Fortunately, thanks to people such as Kit Darling and Dr. Karen Snowden and their work with organizations like Aggieland Pets With A Purpose, many elderly residents are getting the chance to experience the unconditional love of a pet. People in nursing homes usually face a lot of physical challenges, and having a pet live with them is not an option, said Kit Darling, infection control coordinator at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science (CVM). But many nursing homes now will allow personal pets to visit or may schedule pet visits with an animal-assisted therapy group. Aggieland Pets With A Purpose, or APWAP, is a non-prot animal-assisted therapy organization. APWAP members and their pets, usually dogs or cats, visit assisted-living and nursing home facilities. It is always very rewarding to see a person smile or talk about their pets when one of my APWAP-certied dogs like Dexter or Daschle visits a nursing home facility, Darling said. Each animal involved in APWAP has passed a temperament test and receives regular veterinary care with parasite control and vaccinations in order to be a part of the program, Darling said. It is also important for the animals that visit to be healthy and clean, so all of our animals have a bath within 24 hours prior to a visit, including having their nails led and ears cleaned. Some retirement communities and assistedliving facilities allow their residents to have pets live with them. In these communities, the residents usually have an apartment and must be physically able to care for their pets daily needs. The pet must also be friendly toward other people and animals and should have regular visits with its veterinarian to ensure it is healthy. There may also be restrictions on the type and size of pets allowed depending on the facility. Having a pet can be greatly benecial to the health of the older population, said Dr. Karen Snowden, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science (CVM). A pet can provide companionship and social opportunities for the elderly population, as well as physical, psychological and emotional health benets. After children are grown and maybe a spouse has passed, a person may feel isolated and inessential, Snowden said. Having to care for a pet provides a sense of need, and having regular interactions with a pet has shown to lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety, increase physical activity and enhance social opportunities.

I am a realist in a modi ed de nition of that word, and I usually take things as they come. My past week, however, was an open commentary on Murphys Law. Offhand, I am not quite sure who came up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week. If I had it within me, I would establish Snyders Law, which simply stated means what can go right will go right. Then all would be right with the world. Well, except for those who are left-handed. It all started Monday morning when I had an early morning meeting. I meant to set my alarm clock for 6 a.m., but for some reason I set it for 6 p.m. and overslept. Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy. In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn, and they were charging me an insuf cient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed, how it happened I will never know, I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again. It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traf c. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was pointing way beyond the E. My gas tank was about as empty as my bank account. It is bad to run out of gas, but the worst thing for me about running out of gas is calling the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and asking her for help. I would walk 100 miles not to tell her I am out of gas. She always comes and bails me out. However, for the next six months I am reminded and reminded and reminded to put gas in my tank. Thursday also had its issues. My wife wanted me to go to the store and pick up something and for some reason, I cannot remember it now, I used her car. Maybe it was because I did not want to run out of gas! I got to the store, paid for my purchase, came out and tried nding my truck. I walked up and down and my truck was nowhere in sight. The only thing I could think of at the time was that somebody had stolen my truck. I thought about calling the police, and then I thought better and decided I would call my wife rst. You know what it is like when your wife hears something secondhand. And so I called her. I cant nd my truck, I said trying to keep my voice as calm as possible not to get her upset, I think somebody stole it. Should I call the police? Silence on the phone. Then I heard her say in a very calm voice, Whoever stole your truck parked it in our driveway. I then remembered I was driving her car. I tried to chuckle within, but I knew that this incident would hang in our house for months to come and I have Mr. Murphy to thank for that. It was such a horri c week, and I was so deep in trouble with my Better Half, I decided to take her out Friday night for a nice meal on the town. I took her to her favorite restaurant, and we ordered our supper, then set back and kind of sighed the week away. Maybe all that could go wrong has gone wrong, and the week was about to turn around. We chatted; I tried to skew the conversation away from running out of gas and misplacing my truck. Then the waitress came with our meal. I was ready to settle down, enjoy a scrumptious meal and end the week on a happy note. The waitress set my wifes plate in front of her, and she smiled. Then the waitress set my plate in front of me, and I freaked out. For some reason the waitress got my order mixed up with somebody elses order and right in the middle of my plate was a pile of broccoli.

JOhHNSON OBITS from page B5From Staff ReportsSkip Foster, a veteran publisher and Florida native, will be the next publisher of the Northwest Florida Daily News and oversee weekly newspapers in Milton, Crestview, Destin and Walton County. Friday mornings announcement followed a nearly two-month search that drew candidates from across the country and ended with the hiring of Foster, publisher of the Shelby Star in Cleveland County, N.C., since 2007. Im excited, said Roger Quinn, central regional publisher for Halifax Media Group, which also owns the Shelby Star. We looked across the country and found that the best candidate was one of our own. He has a proven track record of not just leading award-winning newspapers, but of making a newspaper and himself an integral part of the community it serves. Before assuming the publishers role at the Shelby Star, Foster served as its editor for 10 years. During that time it was part of the chain of newspapers that included the Northwest Florida Daily News, giving him familiarity with the unbelievable beauty of the region and its newspapers. I am honored to lead such a tremendous team in this growing and vibrant market, Foster said. No one provides better content and better marketing solutions than The Daily News. I cant wait to get to know this community, he continued. My favorite part of being publisher is connecting the newspaper with readers, businesses and organizations in the markets we serve. Foster leaves a legacy of community involvement in Shelby. Just this month, he was awarded the H. Eugene LeGrand Lifetime Achievement award from the United Way of Cleveland County. He was also named most outstanding volunteer on the 2007 United Way campaign and the 2010 volunteer of the year for the organization. In 2009, Foster founded Connect, Commit to Change, a community event which brings together two groups: agencies which help children and new volunteers. The effort was launched in the wake of a shooting death in Shelby, after which a Star reporter heard a young child matter-of-factly ask Who got killed? Foster wrote a column asking the community to commit to doing more for the communitys children. A board was formed and last year, during the nowannual event, more than 200 volunteers signed commitment cards to help one of the more than 50 agencies that help children. Foster has also served on the board of the Cleveland County Chamber and the legislative committee of the N.C. Press Association. He has served two stints on the vestry of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer and is a member of the Shelby Rotary Club. At The Star, he helped launch and sustain a content innovation project that earned the paper international attention. In 2007, Foster was invited to speak in Paris, France, about The Stars forays into multimedia journalism. Foster was a 2002 Ethics Fellow with the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla., and helped write Poynters Journalism without Scandal report in 2003. A native of Lakeland, Foster began his career as a sports writer in Hickory, N.C., in 1988, after graduating from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn. He moved to The Gaston Gazette in Gastonia, N.C., in 1989 and eventually was promoted to managing editor. Foster is married to District Court Judge Anna F. (Dina) Foster, who will be resigning her seat to relocate to the panhandle. They have three children: Mary Frances, 18; Matthew, 15; and Will, 11.New publisher named for Northwest Florida Daily News, weeklies SSKIP FOSTER Special to the NewsCHIPLEIPLEY Self-advocates in Washington-Holmes Counties are thanking Gov. Rick Scott for signing Senate Bill 142, the Intellectual Disabilities Bill, into law last week in Tallahassee. The bill, which was passed unanimously by the Florida Legislature in April, removes the phrase mental retardation from state statutes and replaces it with intellectual disabilities. The changes take effect on July 1. The Arc of Washington-Holmes and The Arc of Florida, a non-prot organization that advocates on behalf of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, spent three years working to pass the Intellectual Disabilities Bill. Senate Bill 142 was sponsored by Sen. Thad Altman (R-Melbourne.) The House version of the bill, House Bill 1119, was sponsored by Rep. Janet Adkins (R-Fernandina Beach.) Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature are to be commended for taking a stand against the R-word, said Sandy Pritchard, executive director of Arc of Washington-Holmes Counties and board member of The Arc of Florida. This is a signicant step forward in the ght to end bullying against people with intellectual disabilities. Mental retardation was once considered a valid medical term, but over the years, it was twisted into a hurtful slang word that promotes negative stereotypes of people with intellectual disabilities. The American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and American Psychiatric Association changed their ofcial diagnoses from mental retardation to intellectual disability. Federal health, education and labor policy statutes were changed in 2010 when Congress unanimously passed and President Obama signed Rosas Law. The Social Security Administration recently announced its intent to make the change to its ofcial Listing of Impairments.
