District considering 1.5 mill tax By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County School District met July 16 and approved of advertising for a public hearing at 5:15 p.m. on July 29 to discuss a possible 1.5 mill property tax in addition to the to the schools proposed tax of 6.043 mills. The tax is estimated to generate $670,751 to go toward building the new Bonifay Middle and Elementary Schools, reimburse maintenance, renovation and repairs, roof repairs and replacement, paving, purchase of seven school buses, purchasing school furniture and equipment district wide and lease purchase of Data Processing Equipment. Superintendent Eddie Dixon gave a preview of the presentation he would be presenting before the visiting representatives from the Florida Department of Education about building the new Bonifay Middle and Elementary Schools. In 1985 Ponce de Leon High was built for $5,299,402; in 1988 Holmes County High was built for $12,042,055; in 1997 Bethlehem School was built for $15,527,022; and in 2003 Poplar Springs School was built for $13,322,713 for a total of $46,191,192, said Dixon. What they all have in common is that these schools would not have existed without the Special Facilities Program. He explained that the value of one mill in Holmes County is equivalent to $412,000 and the value of Walton By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY On a beautiful sunny day, after a long week of bleak weather, friends, family and city of cials gathered at Eastside Park to rename it Etta M. White Hudson Memorial Park. The city park was named in memory of Etta M. White Hudson during a rededication ceremony held on July 16. Thank you all for coming to celebrate the life of Mrs. Etta Hudson, said Mayor Lawrence Cloud. Mrs. Hudson accomplished many things in her life; she was a dedicated wife, mother, friend and nurse. He said she had earned her masters degree in nursing and lovingly served the community in this area for many years. Most of all Mrs. Etta was totally committed in her faith as a Christian and a woman of strong, moral character.

The mission of the Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force is to provide safety for the victims of domestic violence and sexual violence through training, counseling and guidance while attempting to preserve the family as a whole, said Lee. The goal of the WashingtonHolmes Domestic Violence Task Force is to reduce domestic and sexual violence in our communities. It is our objective to provide a shelter that will offer safety and security to those looking to end the violence in their lives by removing themselves from the situation. Lee explained that she used to work for the Department of Children and Families. I am ashamed to admit that I used to be one of those people who would frown at a woman who didnt want to leave a violent relationship and say things like why would you stay? and its your fault, said Lee. The truth of the matter is it isnt as simple as all that. These women have no where to go, especially in our area. The closest shelter is in Panama City, said Lee, and that makes the decision to leave harder. We need your help, said Lee. Weve got the get the word out and were working hard to do just that.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, July 24, 2013 ball tournament recently that raised over $2,000, weve got a walk/vigil planed for Holmes County in October for Domestic Violence Awareness and in memory of those who suf fered at the hands of Do mestic Violence. Lee also said that Octo ber was Domestic Violence Awareness and requested that the Bonifay Kiwanis Club consider dedicating one of the rodeo nights to Domestic Violence Awareness. The color for Domes tic Violence Awareness is purple, so it can be a purple night, said Lee. Weve also got these shirts that have been very poplar. It takes a community to stop the violence. Also present to speak on behalf of the WashingtonHolmes Domestic Violence Task Force was Tammy Slay. This has been our home for over 25 years now, said Slay. That would not have been possible if someone didnt help me 27 years ago to get out of an abusive relationship. She said she was work ing at a bank at the time. Id come into work with fresh bruises and black eyes, said Slay. No one should ever be so scared that theyre willing to get beat up occasionally than to face the dangers of leaving. Last year 25.9 percent of murders in Florida were the results of domestic dis putes, she said. We had one murdered due to domestic violence right here in Holmes Coun ty just last year, said Slay. Some may say that was just one, but if that was your relative, your mother, sister, aunt or grandmother, then thats one death too many. She said she and her husband had witnessed an act of violence the parking lot of Wal-Mart last week. This woman was get ting beat up in the parking lot and while her boyfriend was circling her with his vehicle a couple stepped in and helped her, she said. Come to nd out she just got out of the hospital the week before to get stitches on the inside of her mouth. Shes safe now but if it had not been for that couple theres no telling what might have happened to her. She said that 3,341 domestic violence survi vors requesting shelter was turned down due to overcrowding. We need a shelter here, because if even one gets turned away its one too many, said Slay. My kids make a difference in this community and I am very proud of them because they came from a difcult situ ation but they overcome. I tried seven times to leave before I received help; now as a community we can make a difference. She explained that they are looking for someone who is willing to donate property to them. If theres a building you just cant get rid of, were a 301c3 non-prot organi zation and that donation can be used as tax deduc tion, said Slay. We need to spread the word so we can make a difference together and we cant do this alone.

With our one mill we could purchase three buses, but with their one mill they could purchase 82 buses, said Dixon. But thats also why we qualify for a special grant. Dixon also explained that the new schools would be a benet to both the school and the community. There would be a mod ern spacious facility that accommodates todays numbers, designed for to days students, he said. It would be safer from outside threats, a consolidation cost savings to facilities, mainte nance, personnel, resources and energy. There would be simplied and safer bus trafc, better control of the students, simplied parent trafc ow, convenient for parents and closer to and on the same side of the rail road tracks as the hospital, police, Emergency Manage ment Services and the Fire Department. For the community he said it would be benecial because of it doubling as a special needs shelter lo cated on the South end of the county which will bal ance out the needs as Poplar Springs serves as a shelter in the northern portion of the county. Not to mention a new water tower for Southwest Bonifay, upgraded streets and new sidewalks, said Dixon. Board Chairman Rusty Williams also thanked every one for their work towards getting the new schools built. I want to thank the board members and staff and all those involved in process of developing and building these new schools, said Williams. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedi cation towards building our students a brighter future in Holmes County.

I cant remember now whether Guy and Ann Medley built their home across State Road 79 from us before we built because we were living here in the house in which my husband was raised for several years. But they, the Tom and Betty Segers family, and we built about the same time and were the only ones living in this neighborhood for a few years. We were all stay-at-home moms then as our children were small. So most of my memories are episodes with our children, usually involving some disaster. The rst thing I recalled was wearing Anns too-big sandals to the hospital when our son was struck by a motor bike as he was getting off the school bus. Hearing the commotion from the highway, I had raced down the driveway in my bare feet. Ann had already called the ambulance. At that time we had no emergency services. The funeral home ambulances transported injured and ill people. Sims Funeral Home ambulance answered the call, and I rode to the hospital with Hiram while Ann came over and got Cindy and Glen, who were taking a nap. (I guess Mike and Gina were napping, too.) After Hiram was stabilized, Franklin Forehand drove the ambulance to Pensacola, and Ann took charge of my other two until my parents could get here. I returned her sandals when I ran home to pack a few clothes to take to Pensacola. Another crisis episode with our children was one morning when Ann and I were talking on the telephone. I heard this terrible scream, and Ann threw down the phone. I quickly hung up and ran across the highway to see what the crisis was. Ann was mixing a cake while we were talking, and Ginas long blond locks got caught in the mixer blades. By the time I got there, she was untangled and everything was OK. I am not sure about the cake batter. We didnt have a telephone the evening I discovered that Glen had drunk rust remover (hydro ouric acid). I ran to Anns to call the doctor. After I told Dr. Henry he had already vomited, he assured me that Glen would be OK. He dryly added, Well, he ought never to rust. Another time when I rushed over to the Medleys was when our daughter Cindy hit Gina as she was trying to swing a golf club. Cindy was the most upset of anybody, and I dont believe she has ever picked up a golf club since. Though the Medley children were a few years younger than ours, Gina loved to come over and play with Cindys Barbie dolls. At Anns visitation, Gina also remembered Glen putting on puppet shows and charging them a nickel to see them. Glen and Mike were frequent playmates. For years after we built the house we now live in, we had a big pile of dirt on the side of our front yard, so the children including Hiram and his friends played war a lot. But once I discovered Glen and Mike pretending they were revenuers. I had an old copper wash pot that had belonged to Jacks Grandma Meeker. The two boys were using Glens scout hatchet to chop holes in the copper pot. They were busting up a moonshine still. I remember when Hiram was studying compound interest in maybe the seventh grade. He was adamant that what I was showing him couldnt be right. I threatened to call Guy, the banker, to con rm the interest is indeed added back to the principle each month before he would believe that I knew what I was talking about. As our children grew and we went separate ways, we didnt see the Medleys much. In 1969, I started to teach college, and the year I started teaching, 1972, the Medleys moved to Abbeville. Ann started a career herself working in the Henry County Hospital, eventually becoming the administrator there and at the Henry County Nursing Home. As they had been in Bonifay, the family was active in the Methodist Church in Abbeville, where Ann was very much involved with the music ministry. She continued that after they moved to Dothan, Ala., as well. Ann was also a long-time member of the Troy University Community Band. In addition, Ann was co-founder of Women of The Wiregrass, an organization that furnishes scholarships to single mothers at Wallace College. Golf was a passion of Anns, and she became very involved in that after the move to Dothan, becoming a member of the Dothan Country Club and Ladies Golf Association, serving a term as president of that group. That group of ladies occupied a place of honor at her funeral service in Dothan First Methodist Church on Wednesday. Our condolences go out to Guy, Mike, Gina, Don and Barbara Lee and the rest of the family. Anns zest for life and her happy spirit sustained her through her courageous battle with cancer. May her Lord sustain you all through the dif cult days ahead. Allow the Prattler to brie y rely on his writers crutch, Setting It Straight, and acknowledge an error in last weeks column. Karla is the daughter of Bill and Sybil Webb. Jessica is the daughter of Karla, and the granddaughter of Bill and Sybil. The July 10 article did not do full justice to Dr. Robert Snare in his never failing effort to bring bidders into the process when the big watermelons are being sold in the annual auction by auctioneer David Corbin. These are not errors, per se, but maybe a little more elaboration is needed into the doctors accomplishments in obtaining more buyers. This is especially true in the tribute and in memory category of bids. The doctor brought a total of nine bids, not six, as previously reported. The Jimmy Trawick bid was submitted in memory of his in-laws, Jodie and Bera Yates Owens. Mike Arnold, of Henry Arnold Ford in Graceville, should have had his bid announced in honor to his father, Henry Arnold, The Old Plowboy who founded the business. Dr. Snares business, Snare Waterworks of Bonifay, was the one made in respect to Julian J. Fussell, World War II tanker and later a farmer, who passed away in June of this year. He also joined Ronnie Cook, owner of Padgett Drugs in Bonifay, and Richard Morris of Graceville in paying tribute to the four brave Americans who lost their lives in Benghazi earlier this year. Richard, a long-time supporter of the watermelon auction, always includes his military veterans from the Vietnam War unit in which he served and the group that continues to hold annual reunions. The weekend after the watermelon festival had slowed its pace to the point of allowing me to attend the Varnum reunion by special request of Lanita (Nita) Nicholson Varnum. She is the widow of Kennith Varnum and a native of Nettleton, Miss. Her story of meeting and later marrying Kennith is one of the most heartwarming stories written in the Heritage of Washington County book in the writers humble opinion. This romance grew from an unusual experience during World War II, and readers will nd the full story on page 352 of the book. The John Bethel Varnum family is considered the patriarch of that family in Washington County. He brought his family to the area in October 1885 and the family continued to multiply greatly as outlined in the heritage book, page 351. That story was written and submitted by grandson, Stanley Varnum, who lived to see the book come to full fruition but died soon after its printing. Readers will nd that the Varnum family settled in the Greenhead area of the county where Nita continues to live. Previous writings will show that this family was prominently involved in High Hills Primitive Baptist Church during its existence in the earlier history of the county. It was dissolved as a church congregation in 1926, but the adjoining Blue Pond Cemetery containing numerous burials of the Varnum family, still exists and maintained by Dale Taylor, and others, in the historic area of the county located in Moodys Pasture. When Nita Varnum invited me to the July 6 reunion, she told me that it would be the 26th year of the get-together and that this one promised to bring additional family members, especially from the Clewiston area, where many migrated to seeking employment many years ago. She stated that this element of the family had not seen the heritage book and felt it would be much in demand as she requested that books be brought to the event. The Prattler immediately recalled the two members of the Varnum family, J.R. and Wilburn, who made Clewiston their home immediately after completing Vernon High School only a short time after my departure from the school upon graduation. I was aware that the brothers have passed away. Her prediction proved correct as many offspring of the two, plus other family members that I had never met, came to the family gathering and immediately were attracted to the history and heritage recorded on their family, resulting in the sale of ve additional copies of the ever popular heritage book. Readers will recall that the sponsors of the book had hoped that June would wind up sales of the 200 additional copies received on August 13 of last year. Our efforts in May, June and July have reduced the remaining books to 19 which are still available. You still have time to obtain your copy by contacting me at 638-1016 or email at perry1000@abellsouth.net. The price is $64.20 when picked up from me, or $72 when mailed. The watermelon festival, plus my own Brock reunion and many other family gatherings, seem to have taken my time this summer, as it traditionally has done each summer for many years. I am not complaining. I look forward to all of the activity in which I am fortunate to participate and hope health and strength will allow me to stay involved in many more. See you all next week.

HALIFAX FILE PHOTO The Sea Screamer boat makes its way past the St. Andrews Marina and Harbour Village in Panama City. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration charged operators of the tour boat with two counts of illegal dolphin feeding. NOAA also charged AAA Jet Ski Rentals and Tours and Blue Dolphin Tours. OUTDOORS Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Page A6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Three Bay County tour boat companies are facing nes for unlawfully feeding wild dolphins in violation of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, but at least one of the companies says the charges are false. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration charged operators of the tour boat Sea Screamer with two counts of illegal dolphin feeding in July 2011 and August 2012, resulting in a $10,000 ne. We are disputing these claims, said Capt. Andy Redmond, the owner of the Sea Screamer. We do not feed dolphins aboard the Sea Screamer. Redmond said each tour begins with a verbal admonition to passengers that it is illegal to feed or harass dolphins and that the sea creatures are fully capable of nding all the food they need. He added that charges stem from one incident in 2011 and another in 2012 and that though undercover agents from NOAA had been aboard his boat several times in the past few years, they have not seen humans feeding dolphins from the vessel. All we do is observe dolphins, he said. We do not feed dolphins. Also charged were AAA Jet Ski Rentals and Tours and Blue Dolphin Tours, with each company facing a $5,000 ne for illegal feedings in August of last year. Contacted by phone Sunday, a man with AAA Jet Ski Rentals said the business would not comment on its ne. The owner of Blue Dolphin Tours was unavailable for comment Sunday. We work very closely with the (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission), and these cases were a result of a planned working group, said Jeff Dadonski, the acting deputy special agent in charge at NOAAs of ce of law enforcement. All of the cases were witnessed by law enforcement or other components. Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, it is illegal to feed, touch or pursue wild dolphins, and Bay County is a known hotspot for illegal dolphin interaction. The incidents happened a year or two ago, but of cials said it is not unusual to take that long to conclude an investigation and le federal charges. NOAA Fisheries bottlenose dolphin conservation coordinator Stacy Horstman said the areas large commercial and recreational boating eet coupled with a growing tourism industry presents a unique challenge when it comes to preventing dolphin interaction. Panama City is the one scienti cally documented place where we know dolphins have been fed so people can get in the water and interact with them, Horstman said. The uniqueness about Panama City is the amount of vessels in a small area; youll have upwards of 25 boats encircling two dolphins and trying to interact with those dolphins. In an attempt to counteract the negative effects of dolphin interaction, NOAA has led outreach programs in Bay County for more than two decades. Horstman said outreach focuses primarily on educating the public through brochures, posted signs, workshops, billboards and on-air public service announcements. This season, the agency also has begun utilizing banner plane yovers as a means to communicate the message. Despite two decades of effort, Horstman said the huge in ux of commercial businesses and tourism in a small geographic area has smothered any progress. There was a time when we were seeing improvements, but unfortunately in the last few years, its just as bad as its ever been, Horstman said. We really need everybodys help to keep the people and the dolphins safe. Local tour businesses Osprey Charters and St. Andrew Bay Ferry say they have made an effort to adhere to the initiatives set forth in NOAAs Dolphin SMART partnership, even though the program has not yet been implemented in the area. You can safely and responsibly view dolphin from a vessel, Horstman said. We know it can happen, but there are a lot of commercial and recreational boaters in the area, and its going to take everybody to really help us solve this problem. By SCOTT CARROLL 522-5180 | @scottyknoxville scarroll@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Hundreds of people attended the Bay Point Boating and Outdoor Expo at Bay Point Marina on Saturday, dodging midday rain showers to see live music, watercrafts ranging from jet skis to yachts, and reality television stars. All proceeds from the expo will go toward the Gulf Coast Childrens Advocacy Center, which supports victims of child abuse. Expo ofcials said theyll know how much was collected by the end of the month. We nd it fun, enjoyable and exciting to help out the less fortunate, thats for sure, said Bay Point Marina director Daniel Fussell. About 50 watercrafts from Great Southern Yachts and Legendary Marine, among others, were on display at the expo, drawing many members of the local boating community. Anybody that does anything with boats is out here, Fussell said. The expo included an appearance by John Godwin and Justin Martin, cast members of the reality TV show Duck Dynasty. Bay Point sold $50 tickets for a VIP meet-and-greet with the pair. The expo also attracted dozens of small business owners, who said the expo provided exposure and networking opportunities. Among them was Tracey Sharp, owner of Girls Night Out salsa. Sharp rst offered the salsa to friends as a holiday gift. After selling 1,900 jars of her homemade sauce at the Junior League of Panama Citys Holly Fair in 2009, she decided to expand. Sharps four salsa avors and two seasoning packs are now sold at several local grocery stores. Im just a little local girl trying to make a dollar, she said Saturday at the expo. A lot of people dont get the chance to taste it when they see it in the store, so (the expo) gives them the chance to taste every single avor and see which level of heat they like. Doing these shows does a lot for me. It gives everyone the chance to try it, and I get to listen to peoples responses, so it keeps me going. While people sampled Sharps salsa on Saturday, James Diesel of James Diesel Repair and Performance discussed all-terrain tires and gas mileage with expo attendees nearby. The expo, he said, was a chance to pitch his auto service and performance center, which he started in 2010 after stints at several local auto dealerships. But Diesel, who noted he is an advocate of keeping our money local, also had the community on his mind. We get to contribute to the charity by being in the expo, he said. That was the biggest thing for us, that we get to give back to the community. Diesels business began in a barn, he said, but has grown into an operation housed in an 8,000-squarefoot facility. Networking at expos and other local events, he said, can be crucial for start-ups. The community has helped me a lot, and (the expo) is good for these local businesses to get some exposure, Diesel said. Kristy Bondarchuk shared his sentiment, adding she has attended two Panama City Friday Fests since starting her boutique, Khloes Closet, three months ago. The shop sells dresses, jewelry and fashion accessories. Im just starting out, and Im just trying to get things going, she said. (The expo) just kind of promotes my product and lets people become more aware of who I am and what I have. Meeting will focus on CWD prevention Special to Halifax The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will have a public meeting Aug. 8 in Gainesville to discuss possible options for minimizing the risk of chronic wasting disease coming into Florida. The meeting will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Paramount Plaza Hotel, 2900 S.W. 13th St., Ballroom A/B, and is open to the public. CWD is not known to affect people but is a contagious neurological disease affecting deer, elk and moose. The disease is always fatal, and there is no known cure or vaccine. So far, the disease has been discovered in 22 states, two Canadian provinces and South Korea. The meeting will begin with a presentation by commission staff on the signi cance of CWD and will include a discussion on possible solutions for minimizing the risk of the disease being brought into the state. For more information, contact Curtis Brown at Curtis.Brown@MyFWC.com or 617-9490. For more information on CWD, go to www.CWD-info.org. Any person requiring special accommodations to participate in this workshop/ meeting is asked to advise the agency at least ve days before the workshop/meeting by callingthe ADA coordinator at 488-6411. If you are hearingor speech-impaired, please contact the agency using the Florida Relay Service, 800-955-8771 (TDD) or 800-955-8770 (voice). Regulations needed for scallop size Scalloping season is in, and they are being dragged out of the bays like there is no tomorrow. The problem is they are too small to keep. You go out in the hot sun and get into the water several times, climbing in and out of a boat and getting sunburned in the process, and then head back to the house and try to clean these small scallops and guess what? It has been my experience that scallop cleaning is a heck of a job when the scallops are large enough to keep, but just try and clean these little peanuts that are about as large as the tip of your thumb and you really have a task. You might be surprised at what happens to most of these smaller scallops. I know there are some people who will stick to the job and clean every one they catch, but they are the exception. Most of these peanutsize scallops are thrown into the trash after several attempts are made to clean them. A natural resource that could still be alive and growing every day to a respectable size is wasted. The scalloping experience includes getting the family out on the water whether you catch scallops or not. The idea is to catch scallops, of course, but whether catching a bag full or a boat load it is still a family affair and pleasure is derived no matter how many you catch. Do you realize scallops are one of the most popular marine creatures that the public can catch where the size is not regulated? Just go to the Keys and try and catch lobsters without a measuring stick and see what happens. The oysters we eat every day have to be at least 3 inches or longer in order to keep one. Try and keep a snapper under 16 inches and see how your fortune works out if you meet the wrong person at the dock. What Im trying to say is that scallops should be regulated size-wise. Winston Chester devised a piece of cardboard with a hole cut in it in the shape of a scallop to gauge the size big enough to keep. If you catch a scallop that falls through the hole you throw it back. This measuring device would be easy enough to build out of plastic and worn around the wrist. When you were through scalloping you could measure them in the boat and throw back the ones that are too small. Remember, if it falls through you know what to do. Throw it back.

SPORTS www.bonifaynow.com A Section By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com It is nearly impossible to dilute the travel ball baseball experience into one blanket statement. While certainly there are many organizations that offer boys an opportunity to play at high level as well as a chance for more games and travel to tournaments in the region, not all have the same goals. And the motivation compelling adults to create travel teams for young ages, 8U and up by each calendar year, seems to wane as kids age and leave the game. Therefore there are fewer travel teams in the age 12U, 13U brackets, and heading into high school those summer programs often take precedence. What is certain, however, is that travel ball isnt going away anytime soon, and that the number of travel teams has increased dramatically in Bay County. Where they may have been ve travel teams a decade ago, there might now be 35, although those numbers strictly are unof cial. Many of the players have left the local rec leagues because the latter no longer allow travel teams to remain intact and compete against teams chosen through a player draft. Travel teams basically are a collection of all-stars, or what their organizers perceive to be some of the top local talent at that age level. That doesnt mean the rec leagues strictly offer a watered-down product. All of them still have skilled players, and some travel ball kids continue to play rec ball during the spring months, so its not as if only travel kids know how to pitch, hit and eld. As example, local rec leagues sent a number of teams to the recent Dizzy Dean state tournament in Tallahassee and the Hiland Park 10U placed third. But there is a perception by travel ball proponents, and its probably valid, that the added experience they provide helps produce better quality players into the future. TOURNAMENT TIME We all like rec ball, but for us its a time issue, Lynn Haven Dolphins 9U coach Brian Thomas said. Were practicing two or three nights a week. How much baseball can you play? from March through May. The summer months are when travel ball truly takes over, but Josh Parker of the Beach Bashers organization said their travel players start practicing in January, often play in their rst tournament in mid-February and continue with tournaments through mid-July. Parker said the Bashers have been growing by the year and currently have six teams ages 8U through 13U with about 65-70 players involved. He said some younger players compete in rec ball to get extra reps, but we dont require that. Parker said coaches of the various age-group teams meet prior to the season and produce a tournament schedule, which averages about 10 tournaments per team. I think in this day and age if you dont do some type of competitive (travel) baseball youre behind when you get to high school, Parker said. Its not like it used to be. Thats my thought on it. While some organizations have a more proli c tournament schedule involving extensive travel, Parker said that the Bashers usually play in closer tournaments held in Dothan, Gulf Breeze and Pensacola, and one luxury limiting expenses is their home venue Frank Brown Park offers a number of major tournaments during June and July. Parents are asked to help with the costs of uniforms and tournament entry fees. Parker said that on average parents pay $500 for their kid to participate, but then also have to delve deeper into their finances if they want to travel and watch him play. Weve been able to do fundraisers in addition, Parker said. If we didnt do that wed have to ask for parents to pay more. Some tournament costs are pay as you go. Considering the added expense for parents, compared to say one $50-75 rec league registration fee, a number of parents in Bay County obviously believe the added expense is worth it for their boy. Parker doesnt think travel ball has reached a ceiling here. As far as a number of players I dont think so, he said. Every year theres a new crop of 8year-olds coming up; parents unhappy with one (organization) looking for another. It seems theres teams popping up on every block. Thomas said the 9U Dolphins play about 12 tournaments in the spring and four more in the summer. They travel as far as Lake City, but also play closer to home in Dothan, Marianna and Panama City Beach. He said he prefers tournaments in Dothan because competing teams come from all directions of the Southeast. Thomas said that prior to the travel season he visits websites of various tournaments trying to determine which ones would be best for the Dolphins, and which tournaments are going to make. That helps determine an operating budget when gauging fees and travel costs. Once or twice a year we have a big fundraiser, we sell ribs and chicken, anywhere from 300-400 ribs in a day, Thomas explained. Still, he estimated an expense of $4,000 to $5,000 for the parents of players, which often can depend on the caliber of the team. When they played in the Dizzy Dean World Series, for example, it cost us all about $1,000 apiece because the event takes the better part of a week to complete. Thomas has heard of some much larger organizations in other Southeastern states that charge as much as $500 for their boy simply to try out with no guarantee he will make the team. If 400 try out, that can provide an instant operating budget. The Dolphins, he said, lose a player or two every year to attrition. Heres the difference, we want everybody to be from here, Thomas said. We know of one team that had kids from Alabama, Georgia and Florida, from all over. We want to make these kids better, then when they get to high school it makes everybody better. David Chapman is president of the R.L. Turner Little League rec ball organization, but also is involved with 11U and 13U travel teams his boys play for. Based on eight tournaments, he said the cost to parents is about $500. We try to stay within a 150-mile radius, from Pensacola to Enterprise, Chapman said. The whole goal is to play baseball. It just depends on how much you want to put into it. ANOTHER LEVEL Geoffrey Lancaster has progressed through the age levels of travel ball in Bay County and is representative of the experience for some of our best boys. The son of Chris and Chrissy Lancaster of Lynn Haven, Geoffrey is a rising freshman at Mosley High School and participates in the Dolphins summer program, but also caught the eye of larger travel ball organizations through his performance in tournaments against their teams in previous summers. As a result, he currently is a member of a 13U team based in Albany, Ga., and another in Edison, Ga. He played against both teams for years both teams came to us wanting to pick him up, said Geoffreys mother, Chrissy. Each time he tried out and made the team. The Lancasters, in addition to the normal travel expenses to watch Geoffrey play, also have had to drive to Georgia and spend weekends away from home when he practiced. Chrissy estimated that Geoffrey had played in 12 tournaments prior to her being interviewed for this story. She said she was leaving the next day to y to Fort Lauderdale, where her husband was scheduled to pick her up that Saturday and drive to Fort Myers where Geoffrey was playing in a major tournament. She expected to return home sometime on Wednesday, and be back to work on Thursday. Vacation time from work, she said, often revolves around her sons tournament schedule. We pay for uniforms, membership we gured out than on average we spend about $8-9,000 per year not only for their son to compete, but for them to travel and watch him play, Chrissy said. It can be stressful sometimes, she said. We have two other children (ages 15 and 17) and its a very ne line of balancing (Geoffreys) goals. He started at 9 years old in travel ball and I ask him every year if hes committed and he answers, yes maam. Chrissy said that the ultimate goal is for Geoffrey to attend college by garnering a baseball scholarship. One of the teams hes on has a coach who played in the majors and he said at least nine of the 11 kids on the team should have no problem getting Division-I scholarships, Chrissy said. Geoffrey also has a keen interest in playing football in high school. He loves both sports, Chrissy said. If he wants to keep doing both of them we want him to.

By NIKI CRAWSON Holmes County 4-H Agent Special to Extra BONIFAY The University of Florida/IFAS Holmes County 4-H program conducted a 4-H SeaPerch Underwater Robotics Day Camp on July 9 through 11 at the Holmes County Agricultural Center. 4-H youth, under the direction of Niki Crawson, Holmes County 4-H Agent and volunteers, worked in two-person teams to learn how to construct a SeaPerch ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) for underwater exploration. The 4-H SeaPerch program incorporated STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) concepts and essential life skills such as teamwork and communication, to teach youth to work together to solder, drill, cut PVC pipe, and assemble their robots, said Crawson. Throughout the hands-on project, youth learned important design skills, engineering concepts, tool safety, problem solving, teamwork, and other technical applications. Once the robots were built, youth were able to test their robots in a portable water tank. On Day 3 of the 4-H program, youth enjoyed deploying their robots on missions and participating in timed challenges. These 4-H youth will return in the Fall of 2013 for the monthly 4-H SeaPerch Robotic meetings to prepare for their chance to participate in state/regional competitions, with a goal of making it all the way to nationals. The SeaPerch program is offered by Holmes County 4-H through the sponsorship of the Of ce of Naval Research (ONR) and management by The AUVSI Foundation. Holmes County 4-H would like to thank the local sponsors, Bonifay Kiwanis, Community South Credit Union, Holmes Creek Soil & Water, and USDAFarm Service Agency, for their monetary contributions/volunteer support to enable the success of this SeaPerch program, said Crawson. In addition, 4-H would like to recognize the Fol-Da-Tank Company from the state of Illinois for their in-kind assistance to design and supply the portable water tank in which the ROVs were tested and challenged. Holmes County 4-H is currently looking for additional volunteers to assist in the 4-H SeaPerch program. For information on how you can become a 4-H Volunteer or for more information on the 4-H SeaPerch program in Holmes County, please contact Niki Crawson at 547-1108, ncrawson@ u .ed u or check out our website at holmes.ifas.u .edu. 4-H is a community of young people ages 5-18 across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4H programs are available to young people in all 50 states, U.S. territories and U.S. military installations worldwide, regardless of gender, race, creed, color, religion, or disability.

Baur Obituaries OBITUARIES continued on B5 Crossword SOLUTION We make it a habit to protect ourselves from the sweltering heat. Unfortunately, for our pets these scorching summer months are not only uncomfortable, but they are also a time when the risk of heat stroke is at its highest. A heat stroke occurs when the bodys ability to rid itself of heat is exceeded by the heat that it is generating, said James Barr, Assistant Professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. This results in an increase in body temperature to the point where damage to the internal organs occurs. Heat stroke is a very dangerous condition, especially in pets. If it is severe, the pet will almost certainly die if it does not receive proper medical care immediately. Oftentimes, the pet will be brought to the hospital too late and will die despite our best efforts, Barr said. Although the initial signs of heat stroke are simply anxiety, excessive panting, and inability to settle down after exercise, these symptoms can quickly and severely progress into lethargy, muscle weakness, seizures, and even death. If you believe your pet is at risk for heat stroke, there are several steps you should take immediately to guarantee the pets longevity. The rst thing you should do is take the pets temperature, Barr said. If their body temperature is above 104 degrees, they are in danger of organ damage. Submersing the pet in cool, but not cold, water is very helpful in lowering their temperature to a more normal level. Since time is a crucial factor when dealing with a heat stroke, spraying a pet down with a garden hose or immersing them in a nearby body of water are preferred methods of cooling the pet down. After you have started this cooling process, the pet should be seen by a veterinarian immediately so that it can receive prompt medical attention to prevent any further damage. To keep your pets temperature at a normal range, avoid exercising with them during the hottest parts of the day and provide plenty of drinking water.

Actually, I did have several cares but I was ignoring them as much as possible. My basic philosophy is this, the more you ignore something the less you have to deal with it. This, however, does not apply to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Experience has taught me one lesson concerning women, especially wives. They will not stand to be ignored, particularly by their husbands. I have learned the less attention I pay to my wife the more I pay in other areas of life, if you know what I mean. So, ignoring the cares I had last week, I was caught off guard when I received a letter from my credit card company. This was no friendly, how are you, kind of a letter. Nor was it a cheery birthday greeting. I cannot tell you how many times I have reminded them of my birthday but to date they have not picked up on my hint. The ominous letter I did receive informed me that along with millions of other customers my identity had been stolen. The letter went on to assure me I had nothing to worry about and they had the situation well in hand. That is easy for them to say. They know who they are but what about me? When I got the letter I ran to my bathroom and looking into my mirror -nothing! My identity was indeed gone. I assure you I will worry until I get to the bottom of this. I will not rest until I know exactly who I am and my identity is fully restored. Of course, there is one problem here. What if when I do recover my identity I dont like myself? Can I exchange it or get my money back? For some reason the personal information of millions of people had been lost or stolen from the security of my credit card company, which begs the question, how secured is my personal information? While I am in the begging mood, another question comes to mind. If someone has stolen my identity, who in the world am I? And, how do I reclaim my identity? As a young person whenever my mother was upset with me about something I had done or did not do, she would always look at me and ask, Who do you think you are? If anybody in the world should know who I am it would be my mother. And if she he was wrestling with the same question I was wrestling with, how in the world could I ever come to grips with my personal identity? It is hard enough discovering who you are without somebody casting dispersions upon that very thing. Perhaps my mother and I could work together in solving this problem. After all, two heads are better than one, unless one does not know who he is. I have spent years trying to nd myself. Once I thought I found myself but it turned out to be an old pair of socks I lost three years prior. My problem is compounded by this one thing, I did not really know who I was before my identity was stolen. I had my suspicions, of course. However, somewhere in the back of my mind, I really could not come to grips with who I really was in this world. In the course of time, (actually it was a four-course lunch) I have come to several conclusions. First, I am a man. What kind of a man, is anyones guess this point. The truth is that at the root of everything I am, I am a man. Second, I am a husband. This, of course, is the most baf ing of my identity. What it means to be a husband differs from wife to wife. Fortunately, for me, I have only one wife, but even her idea of a husband changes from one moment to the next. I am never sure what she expects of me as a husband. Once I thought I had it all gured out but someone, I am not mentioning any names, changed the rules. Third, I am a father. As a father, my role consists of bankrolling the childhood adventures of my children; nancing their higher education career, hoping they get married before my money runs out. To this day, I am not sure if I made it or not. Fourth, I am a grandfather. This is the most well de ned role I have. The great thing about being a grandfather is, nobody expects much from us. Our role is covertly to help our grandchildren make the lives of their parents as tempestuous as possible. Revenge is sweet when laced with jellybeans. Sugar highs are a grandfathers best retaliation. The most important thing about my identity quest is, I am a Christian. This undergirds everything else I may or may not be. My Christianity is the foundation upon which everything else is built. I take comfort in the Bible; These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (1 John 5:13 KJV). When my identity is rooted in believing in Jesus Christ, everything else in my life falls into place. Rev. James L.

The tax is estimated to generate $670,751 to go toward building the new Bonifay Middle and Elementary Schools, reimburse maintenance, renovation and repairs, roof repairs and replacement, paving, purchase of seven school buses, purchasing school furniture and equipment district wide and lease purchase of Data Processing Equipment. Superintendent Eddie Dixon gave a preview of the presentation he would be presenting before the visiting representatives from the Florida Department of Education about building the new Bonifay Middle and Elementary Schools. In 1985 Ponce de Leon High was built for $5,299,402; in 1988 Holmes County High was built for $12,042,055; in 1997 Bethlehem School was built for $15,527,022; and in 2003 Poplar Springs School was built for $13,322,713 for a total of $46,191,192, said Dixon. What they all have in common is that these schools would not have existed without the Special Facilities Program. He explained that the value of one mill in Holmes County is equivalent to $412,000 and the value of Walton By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY On a beautiful sunny day, after a long week of bleak weather, friends, family and city of cials gathered at Eastside Park to rename it Etta M. White Hudson Memorial Park. The city park was named in memory of Etta M. White Hudson during a rededication ceremony held on July 16. Thank you all for coming to celebrate the life of Mrs. Etta Hudson, said Mayor Lawrence Cloud. Mrs. Hudson accomplished many things in her life; she was a dedicated wife, mother, friend and nurse.

The mission of the Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force is to provide safety for the victims of domestic violence and sexual violence through training, counseling and guidance while attempting to preserve the family as a whole, said Lee. The goal of the WashingtonHolmes Domestic Violence Task Force is to reduce domestic and sexual violence in our communities. It is our objective to provide a shelter that will offer safety and security to those looking to end the violence in their lives by removing themselves from the situation. Lee explained that she used to work for the Department of Children and Families. I am ashamed to admit that I used to be one of those people who would frown at a woman who didnt want to leave a violent relationship and say things like why would you stay? and its your fault, said Lee. The truth of the matter is it isnt as simple as all that. These women have no where to go, especially in our area. The closest shelter is in Panama City, said Lee, and that makes the decision to leave harder. We need your help, said Lee. Weve got the get the word out and were working hard to do just that.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, July 24, 2013 ball tournament recently that raised over $2,000, weve got a walk/vigil planed for Holmes County in October for Domestic Violence Awareness and in memory of those who suffered at the hands of Domestic Violence. Lee also said that October was Domestic Violence Awareness and requested that the Bonifay Kiwanis Club consider dedicating one of the rodeo nights to Domestic Violence Awareness. The color for Domestic Violence Awareness is purple, so it can be a purple night, said Lee. Weve also got these shirts that have been very poplar. It takes a community to stop the violence. Also present to speak on behalf of the WashingtonHolmes Domestic Violence Task Force was Tammy Slay. This has been our home for over 25 years now, said Slay. That would not have been possible if someone didnt help me 27 years ago to get out of an abusive relationship. She said she was working at a bank at the time. Id come into work with fresh bruises and black eyes, said Slay. No one should ever be so scared that theyre willing to get beat up occasionally than to face the dangers of leaving. Last year 25.9 percent of murders in Florida were the results of domestic disputes, she said. We had one murdered due to domestic violence right here in Holmes County just last year, said Slay. Some may say that was just one, but if that was your relative, your mother, sister, aunt or grandmother, then thats one death too many. She said she and her husband had witnessed an act of violence the parking lot of Wal-Mart last week. This woman was getting beat up in the parking lot and while her boyfriend was circling her with his vehicle a couple stepped in and helped her, she said. Come to nd out she just got out of the hospital the week before to get stitches on the inside of her mouth. Shes safe now but if it had not been for that couple theres no telling what might have happened to her. She said that 3,341 domestic violence survivors requesting shelter was turned down due to overcrowding. We need a shelter here, because if even one gets turned away its one too many, said Slay. My kids make a difference in this community and I am very proud of them because they came from a difcult situation but they overcome. I tried seven times to leave before I received help; now as a community we can make a difference. She explained that they are looking for someone who is willing to donate property to them. If theres a building you just cant get rid of, were a 301c3 non-prot organization and that donation can be used as tax deduction, said Slay. We need to spread the word so we can make a difference together and we cant do this alone. For more information contact Lee at 596-3288, or email WashingtonHolmesDVtaskforce@yahoo.com.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A3Wednesday, July 24, 2013 County is $11,200,000. With our one mill we could purchase three buses, but with their one mill they could purchase 82 buses, said Dixon. But thats also why we qualify for a special grant. Dixon also explained that the new schools would be a benet to both the school and the community. There would be a modern spacious facility that accommodates todays numbers, designed for todays students, he said. It would be safer from outside threats, a consolidation cost savings to facilities, maintenance, personnel, resources and energy. There would be simplied and safer bus trafc, better control of the students, simplied parent trafc ow, convenient for parents and closer to and on the same side of the railroad tracks as the hospital, police, Emergency Management Services and the Fire Department. For the community he said it would be benecial because of it doubling as a special needs shelter located on the South end of the county which will balance out the needs as Poplar Springs serves as a shelter in the northern portion of the county. Not to mention a new water tower for Southwest Bonifay, upgraded streets and new sidewalks, said Dixon. Board Chairman Rusty Williams also thanked everyone for their work towards getting the new schools built. I want to thank the board members and staff and all those involved in process of developing and building these new schools, said Williams. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication towards building our students a brighter future in Holmes County.

I cant remember now whether Guy and Ann Medley built their home across State Road 79 from us before we built because we were living here in the house in which my husband was raised for several years. But they, the Tom and Betty Segers family, and we built about the same time and were the only ones living in this neighborhood for a few years. We were all stay-at-home moms then as our children were small. So most of my memories are episodes with our children, usually involving some disaster. The rst thing I recalled was wearing Anns too-big sandals to the hospital when our son was struck by a motor bike as he was getting off the school bus. Hearing the commotion from the highway, I had raced down the driveway in my bare feet. Ann had already called the ambulance. At that time we had no emergency services. The funeral home ambulances transported injured and ill people. Sims Funeral Home ambulance answered the call, and I rode to the hospital with Hiram while Ann came over and got Cindy and Glen, who were taking a nap. (I guess Mike and Gina were napping, too.) After Hiram was stabilized, Franklin Forehand drove the ambulance to Pensacola, and Ann took charge of my other two until my parents could get here. I returned her sandals when I ran home to pack a few clothes to take to Pensacola. Another crisis episode with our children was one morning when Ann and I were talking on the telephone. I heard this terrible scream, and Ann threw down the phone. I quickly hung up and ran across the highway to see what the crisis was. Ann was mixing a cake while we were talking, and Ginas long blond locks got caught in the mixer blades. By the time I got there, she was untangled and everything was OK. I am not sure about the cake batter. We didnt have a telephone the evening I discovered that Glen had drunk rust remover (hydro ouric acid). I ran to Anns to call the doctor. After I told Dr. Henry he had already vomited, he assured me that Glen would be OK. He dryly added, Well, he ought never to rust. Another time when I rushed over to the Medleys was when our daughter Cindy hit Gina as she was trying to swing a golf club. Cindy was the most upset of anybody, and I dont believe she has ever picked up a golf club since. Though the Medley children were a few years younger than ours, Gina loved to come over and play with Cindys Barbie dolls. At Anns visitation, Gina also remembered Glen putting on puppet shows and charging them a nickel to see them. Glen and Mike were frequent playmates. For years after we built the house we now live in, we had a big pile of dirt on the side of our front yard, so the children including Hiram and his friends played war a lot. But once I discovered Glen and Mike pretending they were revenuers. I had an old copper wash pot that had belonged to Jacks Grandma Meeker. The two boys were using Glens scout hatchet to chop holes in the copper pot. They were busting up a moonshine still. I remember when Hiram was studying compound interest in maybe the seventh grade. He was adamant that what I was showing him couldnt be right. I threatened to call Guy, the banker, to con rm the interest is indeed added back to the principle each month before he would believe that I knew what I was talking about. As our children grew and we went separate ways, we didnt see the Medleys much. In 1969, I started to teach college, and the year I started teaching, 1972, the Medleys moved to Abbeville. Ann started a career herself working in the Henry County Hospital, eventually becoming the administrator there and at the Henry County Nursing Home. As they had been in Bonifay, the family was active in the Methodist Church in Abbeville, where Ann was very much involved with the music ministry. She continued that after they moved to Dothan, Ala., as well. Ann was also a long-time member of the Troy University Community Band. In addition, Ann was co-founder of Women of The Wiregrass, an organization that furnishes scholarships to single mothers at Wallace College. Golf was a passion of Anns, and she became very involved in that after the move to Dothan, becoming a member of the Dothan Country Club and Ladies Golf Association, serving a term as president of that group. That group of ladies occupied a place of honor at her funeral service in Dothan First Methodist Church on Wednesday. Our condolences go out to Guy, Mike, Gina, Don and Barbara Lee and the rest of the family. Anns zest for life and her happy spirit sustained her through her courageous battle with cancer. May her Lord sustain you all through the dif cult days ahead. Allow the Prattler to brie y rely on his writers crutch, Setting It Straight, and acknowledge an error in last weeks column. Karla is the daughter of Bill and Sybil Webb. Jessica is the daughter of Karla, and the granddaughter of Bill and Sybil. The July 10 article did not do full justice to Dr. Robert Snare in his never failing effort to bring bidders into the process when the big watermelons are being sold in the annual auction by auctioneer David Corbin. These are not errors, per se, but maybe a little more elaboration is needed into the doctors accomplishments in obtaining more buyers. This is especially true in the tribute and in memory category of bids. The doctor brought a total of nine bids, not six, as previously reported. The Jimmy Trawick bid was submitted in memory of his in-laws, Jodie and Bera Yates Owens. Mike Arnold, of Henry Arnold Ford in Graceville, should have had his bid announced in honor to his father, Henry Arnold, The Old Plowboy who founded the business. Dr. Snares business, Snare Waterworks of Bonifay, was the one made in respect to Julian J. Fussell, World War II tanker and later a farmer, who passed away in June of this year. He also joined Ronnie Cook, owner of Padgett Drugs in Bonifay, and Richard Morris of Graceville in paying tribute to the four brave Americans who lost their lives in Benghazi earlier this year. Richard, a long-time supporter of the watermelon auction, always includes his military veterans from the Vietnam War unit in which he served and the group that continues to hold annual reunions. The weekend after the watermelon festival had slowed its pace to the point of allowing me to attend the Varnum reunion by special request of Lanita (Nita) Nicholson Varnum. She is the widow of Kennith Varnum and a native of Nettleton, Miss. Her story of meeting and later marrying Kennith is one of the most heartwarming stories written in the Heritage of Washington County book in the writers humble opinion. This romance grew from an unusual experience during World War II, and readers will nd the full story on page 352 of the book. The John Bethel Varnum family is considered the patriarch of that family in Washington County. He brought his family to the area in October 1885 and the family continued to multiply greatly as outlined in the heritage book, page 351. That story was written and submitted by grandson, Stanley Varnum, who lived to see the book come to full fruition but died soon after its printing. Readers will nd that the Varnum family settled in the Greenhead area of the county where Nita continues to live. Previous writings will show that this family was prominently involved in High Hills Primitive Baptist Church during its existence in the earlier history of the county. It was dissolved as a church congregation in 1926, but the adjoining Blue Pond Cemetery containing numerous burials of the Varnum family, still exists and maintained by Dale Taylor, and others, in the historic area of the county located in Moodys Pasture. When Nita Varnum invited me to the July 6 reunion, she told me that it would be the 26th year of the get-together and that this one promised to bring additional family members, especially from the Clewiston area, where many migrated to seeking employment many years ago. She stated that this element of the family had not seen the heritage book and felt it would be much in demand as she requested that books be brought to the event. The Prattler immediately recalled the two members of the Varnum family, J.R. and Wilburn, who made Clewiston their home immediately after completing Vernon High School only a short time after my departure from the school upon graduation. I was aware that the brothers have passed away. Her prediction proved correct as many offspring of the two, plus other family members that I had never met, came to the family gathering and immediately were attracted to the history and heritage recorded on their family, resulting in the sale of ve additional copies of the ever popular heritage book. Readers will recall that the sponsors of the book had hoped that June would wind up sales of the 200 additional copies received on August 13 of last year. Our efforts in May, June and July have reduced the remaining books to 19 which are still available. You still have time to obtain your copy by contacting me at 638-1016 or email at perry1000@abellsouth.net. The price is $64.20 when picked up from me, or $72 when mailed. The watermelon festival, plus my own Brock reunion and many other family gatherings, seem to have taken my time this summer, as it traditionally has done each summer for many years. I am not complaining. I look forward to all of the activity in which I am fortunate to participate and hope health and strength will allow me to stay involved in many more. See you all next week.

HALIFAX FILE PHOTOThe Sea Screamer boat makes its way past the St. Andrews Marina and Harbour Village in Panama City. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration charged operators of the tour boat with two counts of illegal dolphin feeding. NOAA also charged AAA Jet Ski Rentals and Tours and Blue Dolphin Tours. OUTDOORS Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Page A6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASectionBy VALERIE GARMAN747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Three Bay County tour boat companies are facing nes for unlawfully feeding wild dolphins in violation of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, but at least one of the companies says the charges are false. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration charged operators of the tour boat Sea Screamer with two counts of illegal dolphin feeding in July 2011 and August 2012, resulting in a $10,000 ne. We are disputing these claims, said Capt. Andy Redmond, the owner of the Sea Screamer. We do not feed dolphins aboard the Sea Screamer. Redmond said each tour begins with a verbal admonition to passengers that it is illegal to feed or harass dolphins and that the sea creatures are fully capable of nding all the food they need. He added that charges stem from one incident in 2011 and another in 2012 and that though undercover agents from NOAA had been aboard his boat several times in the past few years, they have not seen humans feeding dolphins from the vessel. All we do is observe dolphins, he said. We do not feed dolphins. Also charged were AAA Jet Ski Rentals and Tours and Blue Dolphin Tours, with each company facing a $5,000 ne for illegal feedings in August of last year. Contacted by phone Sunday, a man with AAA Jet Ski Rentals said the business would not comment on its ne. The owner of Blue Dolphin Tours was unavailable for comment Sunday. We work very closely with the (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission), and these cases were a result of a planned working group, said Jeff Dadonski, the acting deputy special agent in charge at NOAAs of ce of law enforcement. All of the cases were witnessed by law enforcement or other components. Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, it is illegal to feed, touch or pursue wild dolphins, and Bay County is a known hotspot for illegal dolphin interaction. The incidents happened a year or two ago, but of cials said it is not unusual to take that long to conclude an investigation and le federal charges. NOAA Fisheries bottlenose dolphin conservation coordinator Stacy Horstman said the areas large commercial and recreational boating eet coupled with a growing tourism industry presents a unique challenge when it comes to preventing dolphin interaction. Panama City is the one scienti cally documented place where we know dolphins have been fed so people can get in the water and interact with them, Horstman said. The uniqueness about Panama City is the amount of vessels in a small area; youll have upwards of 25 boats encircling two dolphins and trying to interact with those dolphins. In an attempt to counteract the negative effects of dolphin interaction, NOAA has led outreach programs in Bay County for more than two decades. Horstman said outreach focuses primarily on educating the public through brochures, posted signs, workshops, billboards and on-air public service announcements. This season, the agency also has begun utilizing banner plane yovers as a means to communicate the message. Despite two decades of effort, Horstman said the huge in ux of commercial businesses and tourism in a small geographic area has smothered any progress. There was a time when we were seeing improvements, but unfortunately in the last few years, its just as bad as its ever been, Horstman said. We really need everybodys help to keep the people and the dolphins safe. Local tour businesses Osprey Charters and St. Andrew Bay Ferry say they have made an effort to adhere to the initiatives set forth in NOAAs Dolphin SMART partnership, even though the program has not yet been implemented in the area. You can safely and responsibly view dolphin from a vessel, Horstman said. We know it can happen, but there are a lot of commercial and recreational boaters in the area, and its going to take everybody to really help us solve this problem. By SCOTT CARROLL522-5180 | @scottyknoxville scarroll@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Hundreds of people attended the Bay Point Boating and Outdoor Expo at Bay Point Marina on Saturday, dodging midday rain showers to see live music, watercrafts ranging from jet skis to yachts, and reality television stars. All proceeds from the expo will go toward the Gulf Coast Childrens Advocacy Center, which supports victims of child abuse. Expo ofcials said theyll know how much was collected by the end of the month. We nd it fun, enjoyable and exciting to help out the less fortunate, thats for sure, said Bay Point Marina director Daniel Fussell. About 50 watercrafts from Great Southern Yachts and Legendary Marine, among others, were on display at the expo, drawing many members of the local boating community. Anybody that does anything with boats is out here, Fussell said. The expo included an appearance by John Godwin and Justin Martin, cast members of the reality TV show Duck Dynasty. Bay Point sold $50 tickets for a VIP meet-and-greet with the pair. The expo also attracted dozens of small business owners, who said the expo provided exposure and networking opportunities. Among them was Tracey Sharp, owner of Girls Night Out salsa. Sharp rst offered the salsa to friends as a holiday gift. After selling 1,900 jars of her homemade sauce at the Junior League of Panama Citys Holly Fair in 2009, she decided to expand. Sharps four salsa avors and two seasoning packs are now sold at several local grocery stores. Im just a little local girl trying to make a dollar, she said Saturday at the expo. A lot of people dont get the chance to taste it when they see it in the store, so (the expo) gives them the chance to taste every single avor and see which level of heat they like. Doing these shows does a lot for me. It gives everyone the chance to try it, and I get to listen to peoples responses, so it keeps me going. While people sampled Sharps salsa on Saturday, James Diesel of James Diesel Repair and Performance discussed all-terrain tires and gas mileage with expo attendees nearby. The expo, he said, was a chance to pitch his auto service and performance center, which he started in 2010 after stints at several local auto dealerships. But Diesel, who noted he is an advocate of keeping our money local, also had the community on his mind. We get to contribute to the charity by being in the expo, he said. That was the biggest thing for us, that we get to give back to the community. Diesels business began in a barn, he said, but has grown into an operation housed in an 8,000-squarefoot facility. Networking at expos and other local events, he said, can be crucial for start-ups. The community has helped me a lot, and (the expo) is good for these local businesses to get some exposure, Diesel said. Kristy Bondarchuk shared his sentiment, adding she has attended two Panama City Friday Fests since starting her boutique, Khloes Closet, three months ago. The shop sells dresses, jewelry and fashion accessories. Im just starting out, and Im just trying to get things going, she said. (The expo) just kind of promotes my product and lets people become more aware of who I am and what I have. Meeting will focus on CWD preventionSpecial to HalifaxThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will have a public meeting Aug. 8 in Gainesville to discuss possible options for minimizing the risk of chronic wasting disease coming into Florida. The meeting will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Paramount Plaza Hotel, 2900 S.W. 13th St., Ballroom A/B, and is open to the public. CWD is not known to affect people but is a contagious neurological disease affecting deer, elk and moose. The disease is always fatal, and there is no known cure or vaccine. So far, the disease has been discovered in 22 states, two Canadian provinces and South Korea. The meeting will begin with a presentation by commission staff on the signi cance of CWD and will include a discussion on possible solutions for minimizing the risk of the disease being brought into the state. For more information, contact Curtis Brown at Curtis.Brown@MyFWC.com or 617-9490. For more information on CWD, go to www.CWD-info.org. Any person requiring special accommodations to participate in this workshop/ meeting is asked to advise the agency at least ve days before the workshop/meeting by callingthe ADA coordinator at 488-6411. If you are hearingor speech-impaired, please contact the agency using the Florida Relay Service, 800-955-8771 (TDD) or 800-955-8770 (voice). Regulations needed for scallop sizeScalloping season is in, and they are being dragged out of the bays like there is no tomorrow. The problem is they are too small to keep. You go out in the hot sun and get into the water several times, climbing in and out of a boat and getting sunburned in the process, and then head back to the house and try to clean these small scallops and guess what? It has been my experience that scallop cleaning is a heck of a job when the scallops are large enough to keep, but just try and clean these little peanuts that are about as large as the tip of your thumb and you really have a task. You might be surprised at what happens to most of these smaller scallops. I know there are some people who will stick to the job and clean every one they catch, but they are the exception. Most of these peanutsize scallops are thrown into the trash after several attempts are made to clean them. A natural resource that could still be alive and growing every day to a respectable size is wasted. The scalloping experience includes getting the family out on the water whether you catch scallops or not. The idea is to catch scallops, of course, but whether catching a bag full or a boat load it is still a family affair and pleasure is derived no matter how many you catch. Do you realize scallops are one of the most popular marine creatures that the public can catch where the size is not regulated? Just go to the Keys and try and catch lobsters without a measuring stick and see what happens. The oysters we eat every day have to be at least 3 inches or longer in order to keep one. Try and keep a snapper under 16 inches and see how your fortune works out if you meet the wrong person at the dock. What Im trying to say is that scallops should be regulated size-wise. Winston Chester devised a piece of cardboard with a hole cut in it in the shape of a scallop to gauge the size big enough to keep. If you catch a scallop that falls through the hole you throw it back. This measuring device would be easy enough to build out of plastic and worn around the wrist. When you were through scalloping you could measure them in the boat and throw back the ones that are too small. Remember, if it falls through you know what to do. Throw it back.

SPORTS www.bonifaynow.com ASectionBy PAT McCANN747-5068 | @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com It is nearly impossible to dilute the travel ball baseball experience into one blanket statement. While certainly there are many organizations that offer boys an opportunity to play at high level as well as a chance for more games and travel to tournaments in the region, not all have the same goals. And the motivation compelling adults to create travel teams for young ages, 8U and up by each calendar year, seems to wane as kids age and leave the game. Therefore there are fewer travel teams in the age 12U, 13U brackets, and heading into high school those summer programs often take precedence. What is certain, however, is that travel ball isnt going away anytime soon, and that the number of travel teams has increased dramatically in Bay County. Where they may have been ve travel teams a decade ago, there might now be 35, although those numbers strictly are unof cial. Many of the players have left the local rec leagues because the latter no longer allow travel teams to remain intact and compete against teams chosen through a player draft. Travel teams basically are a collection of all-stars, or what their organizers perceive to be some of the top local talent at that age level. That doesnt mean the rec leagues strictly offer a watered-down product. All of them still have skilled players, and some travel ball kids continue to play rec ball during the spring months, so its not as if only travel kids know how to pitch, hit and eld. As example, local rec leagues sent a number of teams to the recent Dizzy Dean state tournament in Tallahassee and the Hiland Park 10U placed third. But there is a perception by travel ball proponents, and its probably valid, that the added experience they provide helps produce better quality players into the future.TOURNAMENT TIMEWe all like rec ball, but for us its a time issue, Lynn Haven Dolphins 9U coach Brian Thomas said. Were practicing two or three nights a week. How much baseball can you play? from March through May. The summer months are when travel ball truly takes over, but Josh Parker of the Beach Bashers organization said their travel players start practicing in January, often play in their rst tournament in mid-February and continue with tournaments through mid-July. Parker said the Bashers have been growing by the year and currently have six teams ages 8U through 13U with about 65-70 players involved. He said some younger players compete in rec ball to get extra reps, but we dont require that. Parker said coaches of the various age-group teams meet prior to the season and produce a tournament schedule, which averages about 10 tournaments per team. I think in this day and age if you dont do some type of competitive (travel) baseball youre behind when you get to high school, Parker said. Its not like it used to be. Thats my thought on it. While some organizations have a more proli c tournament schedule involving extensive travel, Parker said that the Bashers usually play in closer tournaments held in Dothan, Gulf Breeze and Pensacola, and one luxury limiting expenses is their home venue Frank Brown Park offers a number of major tournaments during June and July. Parents are asked to help with the costs of uniforms and tournament entry fees. Parker said that on average parents pay $500 for their kid to participate, but then also have to delve deeper into their finances if they want to travel and watch him play. Weve been able to do fundraisers in addition, Parker said. If we didnt do that wed have to ask for parents to pay more. Some tournament costs are pay as you go. Considering the added expense for parents, compared to say one $50-75 rec league registration fee, a number of parents in Bay County obviously believe the added expense is worth it for their boy. Parker doesnt think travel ball has reached a ceiling here. As far as a number of players I dont think so, he said. Every year theres a new crop of 8year-olds coming up; parents unhappy with one (organization) looking for another. It seems theres teams popping up on every block. Thomas said the 9U Dolphins play about 12 tournaments in the spring and four more in the summer. They travel as far as Lake City, but also play closer to home in Dothan, Marianna and Panama City Beach. He said he prefers tournaments in Dothan because competing teams come from all directions of the Southeast. Thomas said that prior to the travel season he visits websites of various tournaments trying to determine which ones would be best for the Dolphins, and which tournaments are going to make. That helps determine an operating budget when gauging fees and travel costs. Once or twice a year we have a big fundraiser, we sell ribs and chicken, anywhere from 300-400 ribs in a day, Thomas explained. Still, he estimated an expense of $4,000 to $5,000 for the parents of players, which often can depend on the caliber of the team. When they played in the Dizzy Dean World Series, for example, it cost us all about $1,000 apiece because the event takes the better part of a week to complete. Thomas has heard of some much larger organizations in other Southeastern states that charge as much as $500 for their boy simply to try out with no guarantee he will make the team. If 400 try out, that can provide an instant operating budget. The Dolphins, he said, lose a player or two every year to attrition. Heres the difference, we want everybody to be from here, Thomas said. We know of one team that had kids from Alabama, Georgia and Florida, from all over. We want to make these kids better, then when they get to high school it makes everybody better. David Chapman is president of the R.L. Turner Little League rec ball organization, but also is involved with 11U and 13U travel teams his boys play for. Based on eight tournaments, he said the cost to parents is about $500. We try to stay within a 150-mile radius, from Pensacola to Enterprise, Chapman said. The whole goal is to play baseball. It just depends on how much you want to put into it.ANOTHER LEVELGeoffrey Lancaster has progressed through the age levels of travel ball in Bay County and is representative of the experience for some of our best boys. The son of Chris and Chrissy Lancaster of Lynn Haven, Geoffrey is a rising freshman at Mosley High School and participates in the Dolphins summer program, but also caught the eye of larger travel ball organizations through his performance in tournaments against their teams in previous summers. As a result, he currently is a member of a 13U team based in Albany, Ga., and another in Edison, Ga. He played against both teams for years both teams came to us wanting to pick him up, said Geoffreys mother, Chrissy. Each time he tried out and made the team. The Lancasters, in addition to the normal travel expenses to watch Geoffrey play, also have had to drive to Georgia and spend weekends away from home when he practiced. Chrissy estimated that Geoffrey had played in 12 tournaments prior to her being interviewed for this story. She said she was leaving the next day to y to Fort Lauderdale, where her husband was scheduled to pick her up that Saturday and drive to Fort Myers where Geoffrey was playing in a major tournament. She expected to return home sometime on Wednesday, and be back to work on Thursday. Vacation time from work, she said, often revolves around her sons tournament schedule. We pay for uniforms, membership we gured out than on average we spend about $8-9,000 per year not only for their son to compete, but for them to travel and watch him play, Chrissy said. It can be stressful sometimes, she said. We have two other children (ages 15 and 17) and its a very ne line of balancing (Geoffreys) goals. He started at 9 years old in travel ball and I ask him every year if hes committed and he answers, yes maam. Chrissy said that the ultimate goal is for Geoffrey to attend college by garnering a baseball scholarship. One of the teams hes on has a coach who played in the majors and he said at least nine of the 11 kids on the team should have no problem getting Division-I scholarships, Chrissy said. Geoffrey also has a keen interest in playing football in high school. He loves both sports, Chrissy said. If he wants to keep doing both of them we want him to.

By NIKI CRAWSONHolmes County 4-H Agent Special to Extra BONIFAY The University of Florida/IFAS Holmes County 4-H program conducted a 4-H SeaPerch Underwater Robotics Day Camp on July 9 through 11 at the Holmes County Agricultural Center. 4-H youth, under the direction of Niki Crawson, Holmes County 4-H Agent and volunteers, worked in two-person teams to learn how to construct a SeaPerch ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) for underwater exploration. The 4-H SeaPerch program incorporated STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) concepts and essential life skills such as teamwork and communication, to teach youth to work together to solder, drill, cut PVC pipe, and assemble their robots, said Crawson. Throughout the hands-on project, youth learned important design skills, engineering concepts, tool safety, problem solving, teamwork, and other technical applications. Once the robots were built, youth were able to test their robots in a portable water tank. On Day 3 of the 4-H program, youth enjoyed deploying their robots on missions and participating in timed challenges. These 4-H youth will return in the Fall of 2013 for the monthly 4-H SeaPerch Robotic meetings to prepare for their chance to participate in state/regional competitions, with a goal of making it all the way to nationals. The SeaPerch program is offered by Holmes County 4-H through the sponsorship of the Of ce of Naval Research (ONR) and management by The AUVSI Foundation. Holmes County 4-H would like to thank the local sponsors, Bonifay Kiwanis, Community South Credit Union, Holmes Creek Soil & Water, and USDAFarm Service Agency, for their monetary contributions/volunteer support to enable the success of this SeaPerch program, said Crawson.

Baur Obituaries ObOBITUARIES continued on B5 Crossword SOLUTIONSOLUTION We make it a habit to protect ourselves from the sweltering heat. Unfortunately, for our pets these scorching summer months are not only uncomfortable, but they are also a time when the risk of heat stroke is at its highest. A heat stroke occurs when the bodys ability to rid itself of heat is exceeded by the heat that it is generating, said James Barr, Assistant Professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. This results in an increase in body temperature to the point where damage to the internal organs occurs. Heat stroke is a very dangerous condition, especially in pets. If it is severe, the pet will almost certainly die if it does not receive proper medical care immediately. Oftentimes, the pet will be brought to the hospital too late and will die despite our best efforts, Barr said. Although the initial signs of heat stroke are simply anxiety, excessive panting, and inability to settle down after exercise, these symptoms can quickly and severely progress into lethargy, muscle weakness, seizures, and even death. If you believe your pet is at risk for heat stroke, there are several steps you should take immediately to guarantee the pets longevity. The rst thing you should do is take the pets temperature, Barr said. If their body temperature is above 104 degrees, they are in danger of organ damage. Submersing the pet in cool, but not cold, water is very helpful in lowering their temperature to a more normal level. Since time is a crucial factor when dealing with a heat stroke, spraying a pet down with a garden hose or immersing them in a nearby body of water are preferred methods of cooling the pet down. After you have started this cooling process, the pet should be seen by a veterinarian immediately so that it can receive prompt medical attention to prevent any further damage. To keep your pets temperature at a normal range, avoid exercising with them during the hottest parts of the day and provide plenty of drinking water.

Actually, I did have several cares but I was ignoring them as much as possible. My basic philosophy is this, the more you ignore something the less you have to deal with it. This, however, does not apply to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Experience has taught me one lesson concerning women, especially wives. They will not stand to be ignored, particularly by their husbands. I have learned the less attention I pay to my wife the more I pay in other areas of life, if you know what I mean. So, ignoring the cares I had last week, I was caught off guard when I received a letter from my credit card company. This was no friendly, how are you, kind of a letter. Nor was it a cheery birthday greeting. I cannot tell you how many times I have reminded them of my birthday but to date they have not picked up on my hint. The ominous letter I did receive informed me that along with millions of other customers my identity had been stolen. The letter went on to assure me I had nothing to worry about and they had the situation well in hand. That is easy for them to say. They know who they are but what about me? When I got the letter I ran to my bathroom and looking into my mirror -nothing! My identity was indeed gone. I assure you I will worry until I get to the bottom of this. I will not rest until I know exactly who I am and my identity is fully restored. Of course, there is one problem here. What if when I do recover my identity I dont like myself? Can I exchange it or get my money back? For some reason the personal information of millions of people had been lost or stolen from the security of my credit card company, which begs the question, how secured is my personal information? While I am in the begging mood, another question comes to mind. If someone has stolen my identity, who in the world am I? And, how do I reclaim my identity? As a young person whenever my mother was upset with me about something I had done or did not do, she would always look at me and ask, Who do you think you are? If anybody in the world should know who I am it would be my mother. And if she he was wrestling with the same question I was wrestling with, how in the world could I ever come to grips with my personal identity? It is hard enough discovering who you are without somebody casting dispersions upon that very thing. Perhaps my mother and I could work together in solving this problem. After all, two heads are better than one, unless one does not know who he is. I have spent years trying to nd myself. Once I thought I found myself but it turned out to be an old pair of socks I lost three years prior. My problem is compounded by this one thing, I did not really know who I was before my identity was stolen. I had my suspicions, of course. However, somewhere in the back of my mind, I really could not come to grips with who I really was in this world. In the course of time, (actually it was a four-course lunch) I have come to several conclusions. First, I am a man. What kind of a man, is anyones guess this point. The truth is that at the root of everything I am, I am a man. Second, I am a husband. This, of course, is the most baf ing of my identity. What it means to be a husband differs from wife to wife. Fortunately, for me, I have only one wife, but even her idea of a husband changes from one moment to the next. I am never sure what she expects of me as a husband. Once I thought I had it all gured out but someone, I am not mentioning any names, changed the rules. Third, I am a father. As a father, my role consists of bankrolling the childhood adventures of my children; nancing their higher education career, hoping they get married before my money runs out. To this day, I am not sure if I made it or not. Fourth, I am a grandfather. This is the most well de ned role I have. The great thing about being a grandfather is, nobody expects much from us. Our role is covertly to help our grandchildren make the lives of their parents as tempestuous as possible. Revenge is sweet when laced with jellybeans. Sugar highs are a grandfathers best retaliation. The most important thing about my identity quest is, I am a Christian. This undergirds everything else I may or may not be. My Christianity is the foundation upon which everything else is built. I take comfort in the Bible; These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (1 John 5:13 KJV). When my identity is rooted in believing in Jesus Christ, everything else in my life falls into place. Rev. James L.
