The board also approved of the date for the budget hearing, at 5:01 p.m. Sept. 9, and nal reading at 5:01 p.m. Sept. 23. Clerk of Court Kyle Hudson spoke on behalf of the Holmes County Courthouse to tell the board of a leakage issue. “We’ve found that it isn’t a plumbing issue and is possibly something far worse,” Hudson said. “It may be a foundation issue.” The board agreed to allow the next county engineer up for duty to examine the situation. Director of 911 Clint Erickson came before the board representing the Holmes County Fair Board to request advice. Erickson said he was turning in his resignation from the fair board, and shortly afterward, every active member but one turned in their resignation as well. “I’m not sure what to do,” Erickson said. “I’ve got a check for $20,000 and outstanding debt to be paid; however, there’s only one active member left. I came before the board because we are leasing the property from the county, and so you have a vested interest in the matter.” County Attorney Jeff Goodman said he wasn’t sure how the board would be able to play a role in the endeavor but recommended that a special session be called and the matter be discussed with all af liated members. Larry Jones and Billy McKee with Walton County presented a resolution to the board that said the board was in support of their upcoming RESTORE Act Project. “We’re working on two projects pertaining to the RESTORE Act,” Jones said. “The rst is an inventory of all unpaved roads that would Bonifay Middle School Orientation BONIFAY — Orientation for the 2013-14 school year will be at the Bonifay Middle School cafeteria as follows: • Fifth grade: 8:30 a.m. Aug. 14 • Sixth grade: 10 a.m. Aug. 14 • Seventh grade: 8:30 a.m. Aug. 15 • Eighth grade: 10 a.m. Aug 15 HCHS Blue Pride Band Camp BONIFAY — Holmes County High School Blue Pride Band Camp is in progress.

Kindergarten through middle school grades are based on an average of all the student’s FCAT scores in that school. High schools have a different formula. Each high school can earn up to 1,600 points with 800 points coming from the school’s FCAT scores; 300 points from the school’s graduation rates; 200 points from the school’s SAT results; 175 points for students participating in college-level classes like Duel Enrollment, Advanced Placement, Advanced International Certi cate of Education and International Baccalaureate; and 125 from the performance of those students who are participating in college-level courses. School grades for Holmes County High School is pending with a B grade in 2012; Bonifay Middle School is a B with an A grade in 2012; Bonifay Elementary School is an A with a B Woman faces child neglect, drug charges HCSO investigating suspicious death at home From Staff Reports GRACEVILLE — The Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce is investigating a suspicious death and a case of child neglect after a 911 call on June 17. According to the report, Hazel Denise Peacock, 35, of Graceville called the Holmes County Communications Center and said her boyfriend, Tony Ray Armstrong, 47, of Graceville, had fallen down the front steps of their home and landed on his knife. When Holmes County Emergency Management Services and HCSO deputies arrived, they found Armstrong with a severe knife wound to his chest, according to the report. Armstrong was taken to Flowers Hospital, where he underwent surgery but never regained consciousness. He died a few days after. While deputies were at the house, they noticed signs of drug use in and around the house, according to the report. The Department of Children and Families was noti ed, and they found that Peacock’s 16-month-old child had been exposed to methamphetamine, according to the report. Peacock was arrested and charged with child neglect, introduction to contraband and possession of certain drugs without a prescription on July 30. While being booked into the Holmes County Jail, several Tamadol pills were found in Peacock’s bra and groin area, according to the report. Peacock remains in jail as HCSO continues an investigation into Armstrong’s death with the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the State Attorney’s Of ce and the Medical Examiner’s Of ce. Sheriff Tim Brown asks that anyone with any information of this incident or any illegal activity call 547-4421 or reportacrime@holmescosheriff.org.

So far we’ve got over 800 listed in Holmes, Washington and Wal ton counties.” Jones said the second was to do a study on bank erosion. “These studies are just the rst step in getting grants to pave these roads so that sedi mentation off of these roads can be greatly reduced,” he said. “We’re moving on with the stud ies, and this resolution is just saying that Holmes County sup ports our project.” Goodman advised this was an ideal opportunity. “These restoration claims go all the way up to Washington,” Goodman said. “We’re talking billions, not millions, of dollars in funding.” County Engineer Cliff Knau er said the studies would help them in future grant pursuits as well. The board agreed to review the resolution and put it on the consent agenda for the next meeting. Knauer also said the County Improvement Grant Program had strict guidelines for poten tial paving funding such as dem onstrating they are taking traf c off of a state road; the paving of the road would encourage economic growth, maintain or protect the environment, a dan gerous intersection, etc. He advised that the board members think of any roads that match the descriptions provid ed and bring recommendations to the next board meeting. Knauer said surveys were going out to all the residents along South and North Ride Roads and if 50 percent or more were below the poverty level, then the project would be ap proved for a Community Devel opment Block Grant. The board approved of the Holmes District School Board’s requested resolution stating to the Florida Department of Education that the county con rms that the Holmes County Fair Ground property would be available for negotiations if the funds were acquired. “This doesn’t bind us into any agreement,” Goodman said. “It just states we’re just willing to negotiate if they should be ap proved of funding.” Goodman told the board he went with their request to main tain a multi-franchise agree ment with the local garbage collection providers and that he had rewritten the current agreement to include protec tion for the county. “The fees remain at $500; however. I’ve added the require ments of insurance,” Goodman said. “It also has an indemni cation clause. It’s in efforts to try to protect the board’s interest.” The board agreed to review the document and bring it be fore the special session. The board also agreed to bring together names for a com mittee to review and narrow down applications for the Coun ty Coordinator/Public Works Director at the special session because the applications dead line is today. Diane Little and Carroll Harrell of the Holmes County Health Department came be fore the board to announce the one-year anniversary of the Holmes County Health Clinic. “Run by volunteer help and headed by Dr. Lisa Bailey, we’ve been able to provide a free clinic to those without health insur ance of any kind,” Little said. “We’ve had over 111 brand new patients during our rst year, and that doesn’t include our re peat patients.” The Holmes County Com munity Health Clinic is a non prot ministry of the First Bap tist Church of Bonifay, 203 West Iowa Ave., and is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the rst and third Saturday of each month. For more information, call the clinic at 510-3779 or 547-2420. The board approved of Com missioner David Whitaker and Williams to serve on the Value Adjustment Board; Commis sioner Bill Parish to serve on the Insurance Committee Board Member Designee; renewing the contract with Doctors Me morial Hospital and re-bid the contracts with Dr. Mohammad Yunus and Catastrophic Inmate Medical; and CR 177 Small County Rural Assistance Pro gram Agreement and Resolu tion for the Florida Department of Transportation.

I know they will work diligently this com ing year on improving the school grade.” G rR AD eE from page A1 M iI LLA geGE from page A1 “We’re working on two projects pertaining to the RESTORE Act. The rst is an inventory of all unpaved roads that would affect the Choctawhatchee River watershed with sediment. So far we’ve got over 800 listed in Holmes, Washington and Walton counties. These studies are just the rst step in getting grants to pave these roads so that sedimentation off of these roads can be greatly reduced. We’re moving on with the studies, and this resolution is just saying that Holmes County supports our project.” Larry Jones Walton County

Of cers for the above session were listed as G. I. Owens, president, Warren Miller, vice president and L. D. Owens, secretary-treasurer. These are all familiar names to me. Historically, on the above date, your writer had recently been discharged from his 18 months in the U.S. Army and was then in his fourth week as a freshman at the University of Florida. Although rather lost in the surroundings, and probably deep over my head in the task before me, I will admit the three days of Sacred Harp Singing being carried on that week end held little, if any, attraction for me. Right now, it would be a welcome delight just to look in and listen to the melodious singing. In Lynda Waller’s writings in the “Heritage of Washington County” book, she mentions attending Sacred Harp Sings with her grandfather, John Waller. My guess is that Lynda contributed the prized minute book to the Vernon Museum. The Prattler grew up with some degree of attending the singing events, especially when they were at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, as they often were. My grandfather, James Thomas Wells, was a participant in the singing as well as being a member, and a deacon in the Primitive Baptist Church. He traveled far and wide to attend both the sessions of the Sacred Harp Singing Conventions as well as Church Associational Meetings, both the annual and district sessions. In earlier days, his travels were by passenger train. Vivid in my mind is the accumulations of old minutes of church and singing conventions that grandpa kept stashed away in the walk-in closet of the home he and grandma enjoyed in the last years of life. It was a joy to spend time in that hide-away place, which reeked with the scent of moth balls, to explore the happenings of the sings and church meetings which he had attended in the past. What a treasure it would be to again visit that storehouse of history and heritage! Sadly, too many years have passed, and the items long since been destroyed. It is recalled that the format of the Minute Book for the Sacred Harp Sings and the Primitive Baptist Church looked the same. Surely the same printers were used for both and those preparing the contents were involved in both events. Looking at the old minute now, I am amazed at how well the record keeping of the sings and the church were structured and regimented along the same lines. Detailed responsibilities were outlined under items listed as Articles in the Constitution, beginning with a Preamble and became rather speci c in how business was to be carried out with equally strict rules in the order of decorum in the singing sessions and the preaching arrangements. Article III in the old minute spoke to the duty of the Committee on Examinations to carefully examine those who may present themselves for examination as teachers and “if found worthy, grant license according to percentage (scores) made.” The president began the singing with the Friday Morning Sessions, starting promptly at the appointed time. In the beginning, singers led three “lessons” as the songs were often referred to. In the Friday Afternoon Session, the “lessons” were reduced to two as the time for the business portion began. The president appointed a host of committees for the ensuing year. The Saturday Morning Session began with prayer and the president announced each singer would lead two songs. The Saturday Afternoon Session continued with each leaders restricted to two “lessons.” It is noted that each singing session began with prayer, and obviously the Sunday attendance brought the peak crowds, as the morning session and the afternoon session were carried out with participants limited to two songs each. Names of singers not called upon to lead were also acknowledged. One of those was my grandfather, Tom Wells. Space in the minute was given to the list the upcoming sings for the forthcoming year. Under District Sings, only four were announced. Nine Annual Sings, nine were given with ve being labeled “Birthday Sing” and “Memorial Sing,” with the honored person being named. Under the Report of Memorial Committee, 13 individuals were named as deceased since the last session, and four song leaders, O. H. Miller, E. W. Hartzog, L. D. Owens and G. I. Owens, led 14 “lessons” in tribute to the departed ones. Included in these were my paternal greatgrandmother, Lucinda Speigner Wells Leavins, listed as” Lucie Wells Leavins,” who died Sept. 1, 1947. The death of my maternal greatgrandfather, Thomas Jefferson Brock, was named in the memorial as “Uncle Tommie Brock.” His death date was Dec. 26, 1946. It appears the Secretary/ Treasury’s Report was the shortest of all others with this comment: “Holmes Valley Sacred Harp Musical Convention has in the treasury, $58.62.” Seemingly, the main expenditure of the body was the printing of the annual minutes. After Resolution, this comment was made: “The of cers and members of this Convention tenders our thanks to the good people of Pleasant Grove and the surrounding community for their support and kindness to this session.” The president then sang page 331. The Convention was dismissed by Bro. C. J. Hagan until the second Sunday, Friday and Saturday before in October 1948 This is another column the Prattler has especially enjoyed preparing. See you next week. SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISER A session of Sacred Harp Singers assembled at Poplar Head Free Will Baptist Church. Their identity and the date of the session is not known. Sacred Harp has long history in county ( EDITOR’S NOTE: “Breaking The Banks” is an investigative series of articles written by Halifax Media reporters Michael Braga and Anthony Cormier. One of the banks pro led was the former Bank of Bonifay. To see a database of the 68 banks featured in this series, related documents and other stories in the series at newsherald.com.) Dear editor, The news item on the front page of the July 31 edition of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser by Michael Braga and Anthony Cormier is disturbing to me, maybe the better word would be shocking. As your newspaper is concerned, though, questions immediately came to my mind when I begin reading the article, rst is why is this situation just now being presented in print, has your newspaper just found out the facts? If the facts have been covered up, hidden from public knowledge, who is responsible for the cover up? I have been a depositor in what was at the time period covered by the revelations stated in the new article in today’s paper, The Bank of Bonifay, a banking institution that had existed for a century. I have utilized the services of that bank beginning in the 1940s. I lived away from Bonifay for a period beginning about 1985 and until 1998, and when I returned to Bonifay in 1998, I used what was then Southtrust, because of the convenience that Southtrust existed in the city from which I moved to Bonifay from in 1998, access to services, etc., in course of my retiring and moving. But, after the bank was purchased by the Medley family at a point afterward, I went back to the Bank of Bonifay, a family institution. In the course of that time after the Medley ownership came into being, and the Board of Directors that was named in the course of that change, based on information that was published, were all people that I knew, personally, that I had did business with at their places of ownership. The news article in your paper does not name any names, that I recognize, so rst do you have access to the names of the members of the board of directors that received undeserving loans, that approved unsustainable loans, that were guilty of acting in questionable activities, and if so why were they not printed in the course of the article? Sincerely, L. Ray Brooks Bonifay Letter to the EDITOR Bank story bothers reader Because my personal knowledge of the county is limited to Bonifay and surrounding area, if I write about other areas, I depend on the Heritage of Holmes County, which was published in 2006. But I do like to include other areas as my readership includes the whole county. Beulah Anna Community is one area that is described in the history and submitted by Nora M. Morrison. I might have been to a meeting of the Holmes County Baptist Association there in the past, and I remember going there to a Holmes County Homemakers Club meeting there when Hiram was a very small child more than 50 years ago. Then it was called Belin, and I’d often wondered is it Belin or is it Beulah Anna? Mrs. Morrison says the history of the community goes back to her grandmother, Ida Padgett, who was born in the late 1800s. She lists other family names that she remembers as Ventry, Griggs, Cook, Hathaway, Carter, Stewart, Spears, Burgess, Cillis, Leavins, Davis, Galloway, Powell, Covington, Crowder, Weeks, Coursey, Johnston, Petty, Miles, Helms, Lister, Anderson, Mixon and Hobbs. Like most communities in this area, the logging industry was what brought development to the area. A log train ran from Geneva, Ala., to Freeport, Fla., when she was a child. She remembers a huge saw dust pile near her home, where a saw mill had been. This provided a lot of entertainment for neighborhood kids as a place to play. She mentions a neighbor, Dewey Padgett, who worked the turpentine woods collecting the raw gum. I think this was called dipping boxes. The gum was carried to waiting barrels in a central location where she remembers a big truck coming and picking them up. In the summer of 1910, Mrs. Mable Shy and Mrs. Ila Padgett discussed the need for a Sunday School in the community. The only available building was a shanty in the colored quarters of Mr. W.J. Belin’s turpentine still located at what is now Coursey Road. Mr. Belin offered it as a meeting place for Sunday School. Later, when he moved to Port St. Joe, he gave the still’s commissary to the community for a church. (For my younger readers, a commissary was a store owned by the company who operated the turpentine still. Most of the employees lived in housing provided by the owners, and they bought their supplies from the commissary. Usually, they would charge their purchases against their “draw.” They had to be careful or they would be like the old song says, “I owe my soul to the company store.”) Mr. Frank Padgett gave the land for the church and the buildings were moved there. It became Belin Baptist Church and Belin Public School. Mr. Padgett had a daughter named Beulah, for whom he wanted to name the church/school. Mrs. Emma Padgett’s daughter was named Mary Anna, and she wanted it named for her daughter. So the comprise reached was to change the name from Belin to Beulah Anna. The writer of the article walked to school with other families in the community. In a 1918 chart in the Heritage book submitted by Helen Commander Galloway, Belin School is listed with 37 pupils, all in one room, I suppose, and the teacher was Miss Oma Padgett (Cotton). She is the sister of my Uncle Josh Wells’ wife, my aunt Anna Padgett Wells, who was a long time teacher in Holmes, Washington and Bay counties. I have no record of when Belin or Beulah Anna closed, but it operated until it was consolidated with Leonia. The church still is an active Southern Baptist Church. Mrs. Morrison told of gospel singings at the church in her youth and the good home-cooked dinners served on the grounds. She also recalled singing schools, Vacation Bible Schools and annual revivals where services were held twice a day, an 11 a.m. service and an evening service for a full week. The visiting preacher and the pastor’s family were always invited to someone’s home for lunch and supper. I remember some of those things, especially having the revival preacher and the pastor and family for supper, but I am not sure I could have managed both lunch and supper. Even with all our modern conveniences, nowadays we would probably just take them to a restaurant. Belin/Beulah Anna is just one example of the communities that shaped the history of Holmes County.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, August 7, 2013 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Still undefeated, the Holmes County Dixie Youth All Stars headed back to Alexandria, La. on Aug. 1 to represent not only Holmes County, but the State of Florida and the United States as well at the World Championships. On behalf of Bonifay Kiwanis Club, President Carlton Treadwell presented a donation of $250 to the Holmes County Dixie Youth All to help pay for expenses on their trip to Alexandria, La. “We were undefeated in District and State,” said Rodd Jones on behalf of the Dixie Youth All Stars. “We’re excited to be going and hope to make a good show just as we’ve done last year.” David Lauen, associate pastor and minister of music of the First Baptist Church of Bonifay, gave an update on their recent mission trip to Honduras that started on June 15. For almost 12 years, Lauen has been leading mission trips to Honduras, but this year was the biggest trip by far. “We’ve been making trips to Honduras since 2001 and like I said before we’ve got around six to 30 volunteers but this time we ended up taking 65 volunteers,” said Lauen. “The majority of the group came from Marianna, so much so we had enough people to be known as the Florida Panhandle Team, which was amazing in itself.” Their rst mission was to build a hospital and that took 10 years, now their mission is to expand the surgical rooms and capability with state of the art facilities, supplies, water supply and sanitation. Lauren explained that last year they were helping build the four new surgical rooms and during this year’s trip two of the rooms were ready and performing surgeries before they left. “It’s our hope that all four will be ready for use by time the next team arrives,” said Lauren. “The majority of their health issues stems from not having clean water to drink and it cause intestinal and other health issues.” He gave a story about a man who rode over nine hours on horseback for a hemorrhoidectomy. “That man would have no hope of getting help if the hospital wasn’t there,” said Lauren. “The were even able to help him home because can you imagine riding back on horse back after a hemorrhoidectomy?” Another story was about a little girl who fell out of a mango tree during mango season and fell on her face. “There was extensive damage where muscle was torn ligaments were detached,” he said. “Dr. Christopher E. Nicholls was there for surgery and done such a ne job that within two weeks after surgery you couldn’t tell anything happened to her. To think, if it hadn’t been for the volunteer efforts of these outstanding doctors that child would have to live with that deformity for the rest of her life.” They raised just over $10,000 to purchase medication for surgical procedures this year for this trip. “When we rst got started it was a 50-foot by 100-foot hospital, then we added another 50-foot by 100-foot wing and then Samaritan’s Purse donated thousands for four state of the art operating rooms and it just keeps growing,” said Lauen. “We’ve got over 26 surgical teams who donated their time and services. As the facility grows wonderful equipment is donated to ll it.” The next big project they want to do for the hospital is bring in a 65-pound commercial washing machine to sterilize and disinfect all the blankets, sheets, towels, and linens for the hospital. Last year they mixed and poured 11 concrete oors for eight houses. “They were living on dirt oors and every time it rained they would have water running through the house,” said Lauen. “Now they can have dry oors.” An ongoing mission is to bring clean water to the resident’s homes. “Their water system is pathetic, like most third world countries,” he said. “We’re trying to lay out PVC pipes to put faucets at these houses. Last time we were able to bring them a 10,000 gallon water tank to help supply clean water.” He said even though it has been quite a bit of hard work, it was worth it. “I know that we hear a lot of questions about why aren’t these efforts focused on local missions,” said Lauren. “On one of these trips, in just one week, the life of that person is changed forever and in sending them we hope that they will bring that mentality back to help our local area. If you nd yourself just a pew warmer I hope this inspires you to get up and make a difference.” Lauen updates Kiwanis on Honduras mission trip SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISER On behalf of Bonifay Kiwanis Club, President Carlton Treadwell presented a donation of $250 to the Holmes County Dixie Youth All Stars during their July 31 meeting, to help with expenses as the team heads to the World Championship in Alexandria, La.

By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — Florida’s next generation of boaters will have an advantage in the safety department. State statute requires anyone born in 1988 or later to pass an approved safety course and have a photo ID and boater safety card in possession before heading out on the water. “As the years go by, more and more boaters will have taken advantage of the boater education course,” said Stan Kirkland, regional spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “The intention is to get people to think about safety things that they might not otherwise think about.” In 2012, 40% of the FWC-issued boater safety cards went to persons 21 years of age or younger. Though not required for un-motorized vessels, operators of any vessel powered by 10 horsepower or more, including most personal watercraft, must carry the card. An FWC-approved course will be held Saturday at MarineMax Panama City, located next to Treasure Island Marina on Thomas Drive from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. “About Boating Safety” is a beginner course designed by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and touches on boating law, safety equipment, navigation, boating problems and more. MarineMax broker and senior sales consultant Bob Fowler began offering the courses to area boaters 12 years ago and now leads the class on the rst Saturday of every month. “Anyone who is on the water should take it,” said Fowler, who noted the course can also lead to insurance discounts. “When you’re getting insurance on your vessel, with a certi cate from this class, you can get anywhere from a 10 to 30 percent discount.” The cost for the class is $35 for the rst family member and $20 for each additional family member. Cost includes all class materials and lunch. Wednesday is the deadline to register for the Saturday class. MarineMax also hosts a “Women on Water” boater safety course every other month. Fowler said the goal of the handson course is to help women gain more con dence on the water. Women on Water or “WOW” is taught in two parts: one part in the classroom and one on the water. Kirkland said most states have moved toward requiring boater education courses and in general those states have also seen accident rates decline. An FWC report on boating accidents in 2012 found the group most likely to be involved in accidents was middle age or older males with some boating experience but no boating safety course completion. Of the 704 reported accidents last year, 55 resulted in fatalities, 42 percent from falls overboard. Alcohol or drug use resulted in 11 percent of fatalities. “There’s nothing under Florida law that prohibits a person from consuming alcohol on a vessel, but the operator cannot be under the in uence and the (FWC) of cers look for this,” Kirkland said. “If you’re operating a vessel under the in uence, you don’t get a lick on the hand, you’re arrested.” For more information or to sign up for MarineMax boater safety courses, contact Bob Fowler at 5275645 or bob.fowler@marinemax.com.

Course required for next-generation boaters O UTDOORS Wednesday, August 7, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section There are a few bright spots in the shing world but very few. The reason for this is the weather. We all love to hear the rain on the roof but not every day and night. Cussing Cousin has a friend he befriended on the pier some years back and that friendship has turned out to be a weather night mare. Every time this fellow comes to the beach the weather is bad. One year he came and we had a hurricane. I think he must have bought property down here because the weather has been a mess for weeks. The gulf looks like dark tea. But I’m being told offshore it is relatively clear about ten to fteen feet below the surface. That makes sense; freshwater is lighter than saltwater so it oats on top. It still looks terrible on the surface. In the bay it is the same way. It seems it would be stained all the way to the bottom. Stained or not there are reports of grouper being caught in the bay in relatively shallow water. If you don’t have any spots in the bay to grouper sh I would suggest going under the various bridges here in Saint Andrews Bay. Under Hathaway Bridge grouper and red sh gang up around the pilings. Finding the right piling is the challenge. Remember now these are the same grouper you catch offshore so don’t come to a gun ght with a knife. Use the same gear you would use offshore. The older bridges like the DuPont Bridge that have been around for a while must have holes and broken concrete under them because the grouper can and will hang you up before you can get the line tight. The seawall under the Port of Panama City certainly has holes cut into the sides of it because I have been told by divers it does. You would have to melt me and pour me into the water around the port before I would dive there. That is a scary place. I am almost certain the grouper under the DuPont Bridge are of enormous size. The last time I tried shing under that bridge I got broke off every time. I got to ght some of these sh for a short time but a very short time. The only way I gure you could catch one of these sh is to pull away from the piling a few feet and make the sh come out from under the bridge to get the bait. Down in Boca Grande they sh around the sulfur docks using live sting rays for bait. When they get a bite the boat handler guns the engine and pulls the grouper away from the pilings before it can get tangled up. Here it is a little different. In Boca Grande the water may be twenty to thirty feet deep under those pilings here it is forty feet or better under the bridges but I still think if you have a sharp crew you could drag these sh away from the pilings before they know they are hooked. Once away from the bridge piling you might have a chance. Not everything that lives under bridges are grouper. Red sh and black drum can be caught under all of our bridges. Last year in the summer time a guide from over Point Washington way was catching red sh under Hathaway Bridge like gang busters. The trick is to have the right bait. Last year the bay was full of pilchards but we also had about a third of the rain we are having this year. The Pilchards are hard to nd due to all the freshwater but the choffers aren’t. The choffers are starving to death obviously due to the stained water and they are easy to catch. Just sh over grass in about ve feet of water and you should catch all you want. Fishing under the bridges using live choffers is sort of like sticking your hand into a paper bag of spiders and scorpions. You never know what is going to bite you. You might get a grouper on a red sh or a black drum. All though a black drum would prefer a shrimp if she is big enough she will take a choffer. Black drum of over forty pounds aren’t uncommon in our bays. I can’t comment in a good way on the taste of the black drum I certainly wouldn’t have the girl friend over for a candle light dinner with wine and black drum. Well, lets back up yes I would have candle light that way she wouldn’t be able to see what she was eating. Sort of like eating cow horns when you could eat steak. Like everything else if you know where to go large speckled trout are being caught all over the bay. I have seen some ne trout caught in North Bay as well as West Bay and East Bay. I am not one of those people that know where to go. I missed almost the whole snapper season due to bad weather. It looks like I’m going to miss most of the grouper season for the same reason. There is a rumor going around the feds are going give shermen back a few days this fall. I suggest you read this little document very carefully before you plan your trip this fall. A guy called me from Mexico Beach asking where on the FWC web site this information was located. You will not nd it on the FWC web site because they have nothing to do with giving back days in the fall this is all federal. The document states the feds are going to give X amount of extra days in October and a few paragraphs on down the line it says the number of days depends on the number of snapper caught in June. I wouldn’t say this was the most confusing statement I had ever read but it is confusing. If I were writing a letter to Santa Clause it would resemble this kind of thinking. I might get what I want or I might not depending on how naughty or nice I was. If it turns out we caught too many snapper we get very few days. The best thing I can gure is to not get our hopes up to high that way if they don’t give us what we wanted we won’t be crushed. If they give us Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — When the sheriff’s of ce changed the way they patrol the beach, of cials said that while there would be fewer deputies on the sand, the deputies on the beach would be better trained and equipped to rescue swimmers in trouble. On Wednesday that training was on display at Rick Seltzer Park, where about eight of the 22 deputies assigned to the Bay County Sheriff’s Of ce Beach Precinct participated in a training session. The goal is get the deputies certied by the United States Lifesaving Association “We are not a lifeguard service,” Lt. Steve Nagy said. “We are cops that are able to do water rescues.” Basic law enforcement standards training doesn’t require potential police to swim, so don’t call members of the BCSO’s beach precinct basic. Beach precinct deputies have been specially chosen because of their af nity for the water, Maj. Tommy Ford said. They are former Navy divers, the sons of lifeguards, and ex-lifeguards themselves. They are all trained in water rescue, so they’re certi ed to save people in swimming pools. But this is surf rescue training. It’s one thing to save someone from drowning in a swimming pool; someone with the right equipment can do that without getting wet, said Carol Wagner of the Panama City Beach Police Department’s Beach and Surf Patrol. The training they do a couple times a week is to familiarize the deputies with their equipment and develop a sort of comfort in dangerous surf conditions. Deputy Odis Lansford called it “a respect short of fear.” The deputies also practice swimming against the current to build their stamina and endurance. “It’s physically exhausting to do the rescue itself,” said Nagy, who has performed dozens of rescues. “You’ve got to get out here and get exhausted on your own to get used to that feeling, knowing that you’ve got to keep going.” Deputies in the beach precinct know these waters like the back of their hands, said Lt. David Baldwin, and they wear swim trunks underneath their uniforms. They can spot rip currents, in part because they know where rip currents tend to form and because they’ve been doing what they do for as long as they have. Even though most or all of the deputies on the beach have performed a surf rescue, only a handful are certi ed by the USLA. It’s not uncommon for a deputy to get into trouble during a rescue. It’s happened at least once this year already. “It’s a very dangerous assignment for them,” Ford said. “It’s very important that we give them the proper training and the proper tools.” The deputies of the beach precinct, as Nagy and others have said, are still police. They still have to patrol the streets, deal with car crashes, medical emergencies, criminals, victims. They try to deploy a couple deputies as near the sand as possible to respond to water calls, but that means deputies in other areas have to scramble to keep up with their responsibilities, Baldwin said. Deputy Ray Maulbeck recently retired from the BCSO before returning. During his retirement he worked as a lifeguard at the beach’s only lifeguard station near the city pier with Daniel Shelley. Now he’s a cop again, but he’s leading the surf rescue training. “Basically, we all have to do the work of 20 lifeguards in a — this six miles of beaches, we’re all we have out here,” Maulbeck said. “So … these guys have to be cops and then all of a sudden respond at a moments notice and be surf rescue, so we try to train in accordance with the USLA lifeguard association techniques.” The spot where they trained Wednesday was chosen because of its tendency to generate the kind of nasty rips that get swimmers in trouble. Those rips come in handy for rescuers, who use the currents to pull them out to distressed swimmers quickly. Shelley, aka Safety Dan, is a lifeguard, not a cop, but he joined the deputies for training Wednesday. The work of a lifeguard is more about preventing people from entering into dangerous situations than rescuing people. But if there aren’t any lifeguards it’s best to have trained rescuers, he said. “This stuff is a start to having safer beaches, you know?” Shelley said.

By PAT McCANN News Herald Executive Sports Editor Most high school baseball coaches in Bay County stop short of giving a blanket approval of summer travel ball teams helping stock their programs with more experienced players. Make no mistake, they’re eager to welcome an athlete who has competed against a high level of competition in his age group and may have an advanced knowledge of the game. But they are proceeding with caution, and want to keep open lines of communication with local youth coaches, especially when it comes to pitchers entering their summer high school programs. The latter statement alludes to another factor in the equation. High school coaches are willing to work with youth coaches in enabling participation on 13U and 14U travel teams for players old enough to also be in high school summer programs. They don’t want to relinquish control, which is understandable in many regards. “I think the biggest thing I see is the kids are used to playing in more higher pressure environments,” Bozeman coach Jeff Patton said of travel ball players entering high school. “And seeing some velocity. I don’t know if poised is necessarily the word, but they’ve all played in championship games. “The biggest thing (travel ball) is hurting are the kids not quite as talented, they’re losing out on getting to play baseball. You have the high achievers, but the other ones get lost in the shuf e.” Patton guided his team to the Class 1A Final Four in each of the past two seasons. He said he prefers teenaged players to be in his summer program, but does so with a caveat. “If they’re going to be a JV player I want them still to play travel ball,” Patton said. “I want to make time for them to do that. If they’re ghting to be starting on varsity in the spring that’s something else. But a kid is only 14 once, so I’m a little more exible. “The only thing I’ve asked is that if I’m going to pitch a kid I don’t want them to pitch” for a travel ball team that week. “If they’ve pitched, I just want to communicate. I don’t want to overthrow a kid.” Mosley coach Todd Harless echoed the same concern. “With young arms I wish they’d have pitch counts or throw them only so many times per week, and I worry if they’ve had the proper stretching and strengthening,” said Harless, whose team was state runner-up in Class 6A in May. “Kids that are 14 shouldn’t come up and tell you their arms hurt. “I think there’s pros and cons. Yeah, they get to play a good number of games against good competition, and when they get to high school don’t have that out-oftown nervousness the rst time. Another good thing is that if they’re around good coaches it’s got to help them fundamentally.” Harless prefers that all his players come under the Mosley summer ball umbrella, but does make exceptions for athletes competing for elite travel teams at various ages. Part of the reason involves team chemistry. He is a rm believer that taking his summer high school team to compete in major tournaments the past few years helped forge the resiliency of last year’s Dolphins ballclub. “And if he’s older he needs to be part of the leadership group,” Harless said. “This is the rst time I’ve ever had older kids on summer travel teams. The last group I had was trying to accomplish their goal together and they did.” Harless isn’t taking Mosley as a team to major tournaments this summer, but is coaching two teams in elite events and bringing six or seven of his players to each of them. “I do require them to be with us at certain times this summer,” he said. “I do have a bigger in uence of (travel) kids coming in this year than I have had in the past. Travel ball has kind of taken over. But I will say this, one of the best we’ve had in the last three years (Jordan Larry) had very little travel ball growing up. He came into Mosley and nobody knew who he was.” Larry batted .500 his nal high school season and will play junior college baseball next season. Rutherford coach Jon Hudson laments the loss of various age-group programs in Millville, Springeld and Parker that once fed his program, and said he doesn’t get an in ux of travel ball players from year to year. He does have, however, have standout Nick Nelson playing for the older level Lynn Haven Black Sox which elds two age 17-19 teams. Mitch Kelly at Arnold has seen more travel ball players come his way the past few years, especially as youth baseball in Panama City Beach has experienced a growth boom. “Frank Brown (Park) has really done a good job, and when there is a good group of kids they try to keep them together,” Kelly said. “If they’re all zoned for us there is a thought of let’s keep them together as much as we can. As ninthgraders they’re ahead of the game.” Kelly said many athletes with travel ball backgrounds are advanced more than just physically. “Terminology is probably a bigger aspect,” he said. “They know bunt and run, the slash play. We have some freshmen coming in that we have to teach basic rudimentary stuff. It truly comes down to the coaches and dads running travel ball. If they’re going to take that much time and money they’re going to want to teach these kids the best way. Travel ball coaches are saying they want them to be ahead of the curve when they get here in ninth grade.” Kelly said he prefers players compete in Arnold’s summer program, but he tries to distribute his summer schedule as far in advance as possible. In that way, when the Marlins aren’t competing, it frees some of his players for travel ball tournaments. He also communicates with coaches of various teams about when certain players are pitching, and also puts that responsibility on the kids to keep him informed. One other possible stumbling block for high school coaches is when a certain philosophy might contrast with how a player has been instructed by a youth coach. In that instance, Kelly or a member of his staff might impart something to a player and get a response “that’s not how Coach Smith told me to do it.” “We don’t put up with that,” Kelly said. “We know we’re not the only coach they’ve had, but it’s like I tell my 5-year-old, when you go to T-ball what a coach tells you, do it his way. They have to know we’re going to do things our way.” Some travel ball coaches, such as Brian Thomas of the 9U Lynn Haven Dolphins, feel they have the bigger picture in mind. “At one time I thought it was the worst thing in the world to play travel ball,” Thomas said. “But now I think it makes them better baseball players heads above. I think it really helps the kid. “If they like it and don’t get burned out they can play 40-50 games a year. I don’t care about winning. We’ve won a bunch of tournaments and were second in a ton of them … but I want to make these kids better, and when they get to high school it makes everybody better.” SOFTBALL Softball differs in that the high schools don’t have viable summer programs for their athletes. “Not really, we do some stuff in the fall, but they pretty much play where they want to play” in the summer, Mosley coach Brian Wilke said. “It’s worked out good, because some at a high level want to go to travel ball and play tournaments. Some not as much.” In the future, high school softball could become even more dependent on travel teams. “I haven’t done any research on it, but would guess there are 20-30 percent less girls playing” in high school, Wilke said. “We struggled last year to have a JV team. This year is pretty much the same thing. “There will come a day we’ll have to recruit kids” already in high school. “Find kids playing in a P.E. class and talk them into coming out.” Wilke said that when he started coaching eight years ago at Mosley 40 girls might come out for softball and he ended up cutting 10-15 players. Now, he said, he’s cutting one or two at most. “It’s pretty much if you come out, you’re on the team.” Travel ball has made an impact on talent level for those who remain. “I think our best players are better, the top 10 percent in Bay County are better, but I think our middle to end are worse,” Wilke said. “Most teams have ve pretty good players. We were lucky to have seven or eight last year” while making a run to the region championship game. Rutherford also had a highly successful season while posting its rst district championship and rst region win in school history. Coach David Barron said that it is a misconception that various 14U and 16U organizations are feeder programs for selected schools. “Absolutely not, we have girls who play for Rutherford that play on other travel teams as well,” said Barron, who also coaches the 16U Chaos travel team. “Last year six or seven of our (Chaos) girls played for Mosley.” Barron said there is a difference in talent level with girls that have played travel ball versus those who only have a rec league background. His 2013 Rams teams was the rst time every member of the squad had a travel background. “There’s no comparison,” Barron said. “In high school we’re limited to 25 games. Last year (Chaos) played 120 games at a high level. Everything is more natural for them as far as reaction time and how they deal with adversity. Not just my girls, but Mosley and Arnold. … They know what it’s like to play under pressure.” Some girls play outside of Bay County during the summer. Wilke said that pitchers Katie Lopes and Jill Johnson both are competing on select teams based in other cities, as is pitcher Kirsten Taylor for Rutherford. LYNN HAVEN BLACK SOX Another age group that has emerged for baseball is provided by the Lynn Haven Black Sox, where players 17-19 have a continued option to compete. The Black Sox attracted enough players to eld two teams this summer, their schedule not beginning under the high schools and colleges have completed their seasons. “We had a tryout with 53 players, I used to do it by invitation,” said organizer and head coach Corey Chizmar, in his ninth year of heading the Black Sox. “I advertised in the paper, and just word of mouth. This year I had 12 I had no idea who they were.” Chizmar said he charges players $500 up front to play, the season consisting of about eight tournaments including the Dizzy Dean state tournament the Black Sox were scheduled to host this weekend. Players from outside Bay County, such as Pensacola and Tallahassee where Chizmar said no similar age-group team exists, are charged $350 to ease their mileage expenses. The team practiced for about a week and a half prior to the rst tournament, but doesn’t practice thereafter meeting up for tournaments at a local Winn-Dixie to car pool. Players pay for their gas and food, but lodging and tournament fees are taken care of, the sponsorship of Panama City Toyota helping fund the teams. “I love the game of baseball, it’s my passion,” Chizmar explained his commitment. He said the Black Sox, who use Mosley High School as a home eld, exist to provide a vehicle for high school graduates to get added exposure with college scouts or give those already playing baseball an avenue to keep their skills sharp. “A little bit of both,” Chizmar said. “As an example I’ve got two kids from Wakulla who tore up their knees (in football) and didn’t play baseball their senior season. Brady Colburn (Rutherford) went to Marion last season but was hurt a lot and we’re giving him a chance to get back up to speed. “I see a bright future for the Black Sox with the talent level we have in Bay County.” CONCLUSIONS The current structure de ning rec leagues and summer travel teams likely will remain in place in the coming years. Having the rec league experience come under the auspices of park and recreation departments could be the model that survives, with parents already strapped in providing nancial resources looking to diminish how much volunteer time they have to fundraise and govern youth baseball and softball opportunities. In the more distant future, that somehow could evolve into one countywide program, but the cooperation and perhaps funding for such an endeavor currently does not exist. What could develop, however, if the number of travel teams continues to expand are leagues that play weekly March through May featuring a travel team-only level, in addition to another level geared more for the rec player. Travel ball (tournament participation) would continue as the sole option during the summer months. “We would love to get something together around Bay County, I think it’s absolutely going in that direction,” said Josh Parker of the Beach Bashers travel ball organization. In that way, both a more introductory skill level (rec ball) and advanced (travel ball) could be accommodated without numbers diminishing. And again, that’s not to demean the rec leagues or insinuate those players are inferior. There are a number of elite ballplayers at that level, too, just not as many of them as in the past and there is a good chance more and more of them will be tempted by travel ball teams. “That’s no fun for either side,” Parker said when disparate talent levels are forced to compete against each other. “I think in maybe a couple more years (separate divisions) should be in place.” Brian Thomas, coach of the Lynn Haven Dolphins 9U travel team has seen other cities adopt that model and basically form A and B leagues within their organizational structure. Other issues could arise in the future, or merely be exacerbated. Among them will be finding enough adults with the time to coach teams if more and more kids participate, and as Part II suggested, whether enough umpires will be available to officiate games. A drastic shift in the landscape, however, could affect the future of high school baseball and softball in Bay County, as well as all other areas. School district funding for those sports has decreased dramatically over time with parents already supporting various prep programs financially. And it needs to be pointed out that the business community here has been a solid partner in a sponsorship and supportive role for all levels of baseball and softball. The balance of control at some extent, eventually could shift to almost completely outside the realm of the schools. In that sense, 20 years from now another writer might be waxing eloquently about the good old days. He perhaps would be referring to those we are experiencing now.

Local A8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, August 7, 2013 (EDITOR’S NOTE: “Breaking The Banks” is an series of investigative stories written by Halifax Media reporters Michael Braga and Anthony Cormier. Find a database of the 68 banks featured in this series, related documents and other stories in the series at newsherald.com.) By MICHAEL BRAGA and ANTHONY CORMIER Halifax Media MARIANNA — Chipola Community Bank could not be accused of aggressive growth. Founded in Marianna as First Capital Bank in October 2005, Chipola never had more than $40 million in loans on its books, but its focus on commercial developers proved its undoing. Bad loans began to accumulate in 2009 and rapidly ate into the bank’s capital, a Herald-Tribune investigation found. After getting hit with a regulatory order in 2010, the bank changed its name to Chipola Community and began looking for fresh funds. In June 2012, it looked as if it might receive a $3 million infusion from a group of Latin American investors, according to the South Florida Business Journal. Regulators stopped the deal in its tracks. The investment group was headed by Harold Connell, the former president and chief executive of Security Bank in North Lauderdale, which had failed just a month earlier. Connell was ned twice by the Of ce of the Comptroller of the Currency for failing to meet regulatory requirements and for hiring a top executive who had a criminal record, so regulators thwarted his attempt to gain control of the Panhandle bank. Though Chipola was overseen by the Florida Ofce of Financial Regulation, regulatory reports will not be public until April 2014. The FDIC has not issued an analysis of the failure.

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Museum offers class in basket weaving Special to Extra CHIPLEY Saturday, Aug. 3, was a busy day at Washington County Historical Museum. In addition to the museums weekend visitors, the museum hosted a Beginning Basket Weaving Class. Class instructor Sharon Hynes, who can boast of more than 30 years of basket weaving experience, said, I took a class at a cultural arts center, and Ive been weaving ever since! Hynes and her assistant, Yvette Lerner, prepared a pre-cut reed kit for each student and provided handson instructions on taking a bundle of reeds and creating a beautiful, handmade basket. In a just little more than two hours, students were able to take home their completed gathering basket and had acquired the basic skills to begin weaving their own reed baskets at home. The art of basket weaving is a heritage handicraft an important craft we want to keep alive, said museum director Dorothy Odom. What object evokes more nostalgic memories of our past? Almost everyone can remember a favorite Easter basket, market baskets, Grandmas little button basket and her sewing basket, baskets that carried cotton from the eld, eggs from the chicken yard, and laundry from the line. We hope to offer additional weaving classes later this year. Check our website at www. washingtoncountyhistoricalsociety. org for information on all our activities. Scott appoints 2 to Florida Housing Finance Corporation Moving to a new area can be a stressful ordeal for all involved, especially your pets. The chaos of packing, moving furniture and the strangeness of a new area can leave your cat or dog spinning. However, with a little advance planning, patience and affection, you can help your pet quickly adjust to their new neighborhood. Before you move, make sure that your pet is current on their immunizations and that you have any health statements or documentation, like your pets rabies certicate, that may be required in your new area, said Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Also, its important to start preparing early since interstate moving requires an interstate health certicate, which is issued within 10 days of travel, and moving abroad means your pet will need an international health certicate which takes around 30 days to facilitate. When it comes time to actually start the move, making sure your pet is safe and comfortable is essential. Pets will often get nervous when the packing starts, so it is vital to try and alleviate this anxiety by sticking to a normal routine with your pet by having regular play times, walks, meals, etc. While youre traveling, its crucial that your pet be in a carrier if at all possible to ensure the safety of the pet as well as the cars occupants, Eckman said. You should also make sure to factor in rest stops for the pet that include snack and water breaks. For these rest stops, make sure to have a reliable collar or harness to keep the pet safe and from running away. When traveling by plane, it is important to remember that many pets do well once they are actually on the plane and settled. The FFA prefers that pets not be heavily sedated during ights, especially those that are ying cargo, because of safety concerns. If you are concerned about your pet, your veterinarian can help you develop strategies to aid your pets anxiety of ying. Often, these will need to be tested at home before traveling in case the pet has adverse reactions, so you will need to allow time for this. When you nally arrive at your new home, it is important to make sure that the area is safe and secure for your pet, Eckman said. Look for items that may have been left over from previous tenants, like traps, chemicals, or tools, and make sure that the homes perimeter is secure. You should then let your pet get used to their new home and surroundings, and try to get back into a normal routine with them as quickly as possible.

I am at that stage in life where I really do not need presents from anybody reminding me of how old I really am. I know every present represents an obligatory return on the gesture and at my age, I do not have the energy to return anything. All I really need is just a friendly Happy Birthday. I have developed a special rule along that line. For every Happy Birthday I receive, I am allowed one slice of birthday cake. So far I am on my 19th birthday cake and anticipating more. The rule about saying Happy Birthday is that as long as there is a six-month period either way, it is still in play. I am looking forward to a lot more Happy Birthday greetings. After all, what do you get a person who has had as many birthdays as I have had that would be original and surprising? Believe me, I have enough ties. Of course, cash is always in good taste. Throughout the years I have been known to pull a few surprises on the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonages birthday but nobody has been able to reciprocate. That is, until recently. It was the day of my birthday when suddenly I began receiving emails and phone calls and they all had one theme. Not one of them was wishing me happy birthday but all were concerned about an email they allegedly received from me. According to this email, I was in Manila, Philippines on some mission trip. Actually that was not quite unusual because several years ago I did go on such a trip and most of my friends knew it. Now, according to this friendly email being sent to my friends, I was back in the Philippines on another mission trip. According to this anonymous friend, I was stranded in the Philippines. I had been robbed, my passport had been con scated, and I needed money to get out of the Philippines. No wonder I have been feeling tired lately! Of all the birthday presents a person might receive this one really beats the birthday cake. I would not have thought of this in 1 million years. My email account had been hacked into and all of my email contacts were sent what seemed to be an emergency email. Most of my friends were relieved to nd out that I was not stranded in the Philippines. My Korean publisher actually was willing to put up money to rescue me from my situation. Two other people were trying to nd out how to get money to bail me out. The thing that worries me along this line is of all of my friends only three were willing to bail me out nancially. I must make a mental note of this and never get stranded in the Philippines. My birthday hacking became a little more than I at rst thought. At rst it was a little joke, ha ha ha, I am really not in the Philippines. A joke can only go so far. I thought it was the end of the joke, but boy, was I in for a wonderful birthday surprise. My entire email account had been compromised and a new email address was inserted so all of the response would go to another person. I nally found out how he changed my account, changed it back and changed my password. All of my emails for the past month, including important ones from my publisher and agent, were lost in the mysterious world of the Internet. Somewhere in that mystifying world, my emails are oating around not knowing whither to cometh or goeth. Delving deeper into my birthday hacking present I discovered that although my email contacts were missing, where I once had over 600 email contacts, I now had exactly none. How do you deal with none? I now do not know who my friends really are. Their addresses are gone. How do I contact them? I am beginning to think this birthday hacking present is not all it is hacked up to be. Now, my post birthday activity will be salvaging all of those email contacts. I suppose it is good every once in a while to start over again. I guess there is something good about getting a fresh start in life. I have often thought of it myself but never in this context. I would like to know who my birthday benefactor really is. I would like the opportunity to properly and fully acknowledge and express to this person my true feelings about him face-toface, and not on Facebook. After all, thank you does not always say it. I think I now appreciate Josephs feelings towards his brothers who caused him so much trouble. But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive (Genesis 50:20 KJV). I am still looking for the good in this situation. For one, I am not stranded in the Philippines without any money. I am at home without money, but that is a different story. Although he hacked my email account, he did not touch my soul. A rumor can never hurt you if you really know the truth. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att. net. His web site is www. jamessnyderministries.com. Philippines stranding rumors are highly exaggerated DR. JAMES L. SNYDER Out to Pastor According to this anonymous friend, I was stranded in the Philippines. I had been robbed, my passport had been con scated, and I needed money to get out of the Philippines. No wonder I have been feeling tired lately!

After reviewing the budget as extensively as we have, I feel comfortable at our current rate, Commissioner Kenneth Williams said. The board also approved of the date for the budget hearing, at 5:01 p.m. Sept. 9, and nal reading at 5:01 p.m. Sept. 23. Clerk of Court Kyle Hudson spoke on behalf of the Holmes County Courthouse to tell the board of a leakage issue. Weve found that it isnt a plumbing issue and is possibly something far worse, Hudson said. It may be a foundation issue. The board agreed to allow the next county engineer up for duty to examine the situation. Director of 911 Clint Erickson came before the board representing the Holmes County Fair Board to request advice. Erickson said he was turning in his resignation from the fair board, and shortly afterward, every active member but one turned in their resignation as well. Im not sure what to do, Erickson said. Ive got a check for $20,000 and outstanding debt to be paid; however, theres only one active member left. I came before the board because we are leasing the property from the county, and so you have a vested interest in the matter. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said he wasnt sure how the board would be able to play a role in the endeavor but recommended that a special session be called and the matter be discussed with all af liated members. Larry Jones and Billy McKee with Walton County presented a resolution to the board that said the board was in support of their upcoming RESTORE Act Project. Were working on two projects pertaining to the RESTORE Act, Jones said.

Im pleased but not satised, Superintendent Eddie Dixon said. All of our districts efforts are focused on improving the school grades for next year. Every year, the state gives every public school a letter grade from a formula provided by the Florida Department of Education. Kindergarten through middle school grades are based on an average of all the students FCAT scores in that school. High schools have a different formula. Each high school can earn up to 1,600 points with 800 points coming from the schools FCAT scores; 300 points from the schools graduation rates; 200 points from the schools SAT results; 175 points for students participating in college-level classes like Duel Enrollment, Advanced Placement, Advanced International Certi cate of Education and International Baccalaureate; and 125 from the performance of those students who are participating in college-level courses.

According to the report, Hazel Denise Peacock, 35, of Graceville called the Holmes County Communications Center and said her boyfriend, Tony Ray Armstrong, 47, of Graceville, had fallen down the front steps of their home and landed on his knife. When Holmes County Emergency Management Services and HCSO deputies arrived, they found Armstrong with a severe knife wound to his chest, according to the report. Armstrong was taken to Flowers Hospital, where he underwent surgery but never regained consciousness. He died a few days after.

The Department of Children and Families was noti ed, and they found that Peacocks 16-month-old child had been exposed to methamphetamine, according to the report. Peacock was arrested and charged with child neglect, introduction to contraband and possession of certain drugs without a prescription on July 30. While being booked into the Holmes County Jail, several Tamadol pills were found in Peacocks bra and groin area, according to the report. Peacock remains in jail as HCSO continues an investigation into Armstrongs death with the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the State Attorneys Of ce and the Medical Examiners Of ce.

So far weve got over 800 listed in Holmes, Washington and Walton counties. Jones said the second was to do a study on bank erosion. These studies are just the rst step in getting grants to pave these roads so that sedimentation off of these roads can be greatly reduced, he said. Were moving on with the studies, and this resolution is just saying that Holmes County supports our project. Goodman advised this was an ideal opportunity. These restoration claims go all the way up to Washington, Goodman said. Were talking billions, not millions, of dollars in funding. County Engineer Cliff Knauer said the studies would help them in future grant pursuits as well. The board agreed to review the resolution and put it on the consent agenda for the next meeting. Knauer also said the County Improvement Grant Program had strict guidelines for potential paving funding such as demonstrating they are taking trafc off of a state road; the paving of the road would encourage economic growth, maintain or protect the environment, a dangerous intersection, etc. He advised that the board members think of any roads that match the descriptions provided and bring recommendations to the next board meeting. Knauer said surveys were going out to all the residents along South and North Ride Roads and if 50 percent or more were below the poverty level, then the project would be approved for a Community Development Block Grant. The board approved of the Holmes District School Boards requested resolution stating to the Florida Department of Education that the county conrms that the Holmes County Fair Ground property would be available for negotiations if the funds were acquired. This doesnt bind us into any agreement, Goodman said. It just states were just willing to negotiate if they should be approved of funding. Goodman told the board he went with their request to maintain a multi-franchise agreement with the local garbage collection providers and that he had rewritten the current agreement to include protection for the county. The fees remain at $500; however. Ive added the requirements of insurance, Goodman said. It also has an indemnication clause. Its in efforts to try to protect the boards interest. The board agreed to review the document and bring it before the special session. The board also agreed to bring together names for a committee to review and narrow down applications for the County Coordinator/Public Works Director at the special session because the applications deadline is today. Diane Little and Carroll Harrell of the Holmes County Health Department came before the board to announce the one-year anniversary of the Holmes County Health Clinic. Run by volunteer help and headed by Dr. Lisa Bailey, weve been able to provide a free clinic to those without health insurance of any kind, Little said. Weve had over 111 brand new patients during our rst year, and that doesnt include our repeat patients. The Holmes County Community Health Clinic is a nonprot ministry of the First Baptist Church of Bonifay, 203 West Iowa Ave., and is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the rst and third Saturday of each month. For more information, call the clinic at 510-3779 or 547-2420. The board approved of Commissioner David Whitaker and Williams to serve on the Value Adjustment Board; Commissioner Bill Parish to serve on the Insurance Committee Board Member Designee; renewing the contract with Doctors Memorial Hospital and re-bid the contracts with Dr. Mohammad Yunus and Catastrophic Inmate Medical; and CR 177 Small County Rural Assistance Program Agreement and Resolution for the Florida Department of Transportation. The special session will be announced as soon as the information is provided, and the next regularly scheduled meeting is set for 9 a.m. Aug. 13. grade in 2012; Poplar Springs High School is pending with a C grade in 2012; Bethlehem High School is pending with a C grade in 2012; Ponce de Leon High School is pending with a D grade in 2012; and Ponce de Leon Elementary School is a C with a B grade in 2012. As the new principal at Ponce de Leon Elementary School, I will be working with faculty, staff, students, parents and the community to make positive changes at our school that are focused on increasing student learning and achievement, Principal Anissa Locke said. Ponce de Leon Elementary School has excellent faculty, staff and students. I know they will work diligently this coming year on improving the school grade.

A Crestview man was also seriously injured, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Charles Bruce Johnson, 64, of Ponce de Leon was driving east on County Road 181C in his 2004 GMC Envoy when his truck drifted onto the southern shoulder as it entered a curve, according to the report. Douglas Alan Sanders, 35, of Crestview was entering the same curve from the opposite direction driving a 2006 Chevrolet Suburban. According to the report, Johnson overcorrected, causing his SUV to spin as it reentered the roadway, crossing into the oncoming lane and striking Sanders truck. The impact caused Sanders Chevrolet to roll over onto its roof, coming to a rest upside down and facing west on the northern shoulder of the road. Johnsons SUV came to a rest upright on the northern shoulder facing northwest, north of the point of impact. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene. Sanders was taken to Bay Medical Center with serious injuries, according to the report. A passenger in Sanders vehicle, Sonny Wayne Smith, 38, of Jacksonville, was also injured. It is not reported to which hospital, if any, Smith was taken. Johnson was not wearing his seat belt, according to the report.

Of cers for the above session were listed as G. I. Owens, president, Warren Miller, vice president and L. D. Owens, secretary-treasurer. These are all familiar names to me. Historically, on the above date, your writer had recently been discharged from his 18 months in the U.S. Army and was then in his fourth week as a freshman at the University of Florida. Although rather lost in the surroundings, and probably deep over my head in the task before me, I will admit the three days of Sacred Harp Singing being carried on that week end held little, if any, attraction for me. Right now, it would be a welcome delight just to look in and listen to the melodious singing. In Lynda Wallers writings in the Heritage of Washington County book, she mentions attending Sacred Harp Sings with her grandfather, John Waller. My guess is that Lynda contributed the prized minute book to the Vernon Museum. The Prattler grew up with some degree of attending the singing events, especially when they were at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, as they often were. My grandfather, James Thomas Wells, was a participant in the singing as well as being a member, and a deacon in the Primitive Baptist Church. He traveled far and wide to attend both the sessions of the Sacred Harp Singing Conventions as well as Church Associational Meetings, both the annual and district sessions. In earlier days, his travels were by passenger train. Vivid in my mind is the accumulations of old minutes of church and singing conventions that grandpa kept stashed away in the walk-in closet of the home he and grandma enjoyed in the last years of life. It was a joy to spend time in that hide-away place, which reeked with the scent of moth balls, to explore the happenings of the sings and church meetings which he had attended in the past. What a treasure it would be to again visit that storehouse of history and heritage! Sadly, too many years have passed, and the items long since been destroyed. It is recalled that the format of the Minute Book for the Sacred Harp Sings and the Primitive Baptist Church looked the same. Surely the same printers were used for both and those preparing the contents were involved in both events. Looking at the old minute now, I am amazed at how well the record keeping of the sings and the church were structured and regimented along the same lines. Detailed responsibilities were outlined under items listed as Articles in the Constitution, beginning with a Preamble and became rather speci c in how business was to be carried out with equally strict rules in the order of decorum in the singing sessions and the preaching arrangements. Article III in the old minute spoke to the duty of the Committee on Examinations to carefully examine those who may present themselves for examination as teachers and if found worthy, grant license according to percentage (scores) made. The president began the singing with the Friday Morning Sessions, starting promptly at the appointed time. In the beginning, singers led three lessons as the songs were often referred to. In the Friday Afternoon Session, the lessons were reduced to two as the time for the business portion began. The president appointed a host of committees for the ensuing year. The Saturday Morning Session began with prayer and the president announced each singer would lead two songs. The Saturday Afternoon Session continued with each leaders restricted to two lessons. It is noted that each singing session began with prayer, and obviously the Sunday attendance brought the peak crowds, as the morning session and the afternoon session were carried out with participants limited to two songs each. Names of singers not called upon to lead were also acknowledged. One of those was my grandfather, Tom Wells. Space in the minute was given to the list the upcoming sings for the forthcoming year. Under District Sings, only four were announced. Nine Annual Sings, nine were given with ve being labeled Birthday Sing and Memorial Sing, with the honored person being named. Under the Report of Memorial Committee, 13 individuals were named as deceased since the last session, and four song leaders, O. H. Miller, E. W. Hartzog, L. D. Owens and G. I. Owens, led 14 lessons in tribute to the departed ones. Included in these were my paternal greatgrandmother, Lucinda Speigner Wells Leavins, listed as Lucie Wells Leavins, who died Sept. 1, 1947. The death of my maternal greatgrandfather, Thomas Jefferson Brock, was named in the memorial as Uncle Tommie Brock. His death date was Dec. 26, 1946. It appears the Secretary/ Treasurys Report was the shortest of all others with this comment: Holmes Valley Sacred Harp Musical Convention has in the treasury, $58.62. Seemingly, the main expenditure of the body was the printing of the annual minutes. After Resolution, this comment was made: The of cers and members of this Convention tenders our thanks to the good people of Pleasant Grove and the surrounding community for their support and kindness to this session. The president then sang page 331. The Convention was dismissed by Bro. C. J. Hagan until the second Sunday, Friday and Saturday before in October 1948 This is another column the Prattler has especially enjoyed preparing. See you next week. SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERA session of Sacred Harp Singers assembled at Poplar Head Free Will Baptist Church. Their identity and the date of the session is not known.Sacred Harp has long history in county( EDITORS NOTE: Breaking The Banks is an investigative series of articles written by Halifax Media reporters Michael Braga and Anthony Cormier. One of the banks pro led was the former Bank of Bonifay. To see a database of the 68 banks featured in this series, related documents and other stories in the series at newsherald.com.) Dear editor, The news item on the front page of the July 31 edition of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser by Michael Braga and Anthony Cormier is disturbing to me, maybe the better word would be shocking. As your newspaper is concerned, though, questions immediately came to my mind when I begin reading the article, rst is why is this situation just now being presented in print, has your newspaper just found out the facts? If the facts have been covered up, hidden from public knowledge, who is responsible for the cover up? I have been a depositor in what was at the time period covered by the revelations stated in the new article in todays paper, The Bank of Bonifay, a banking institution that had existed for a century. I have utilized the services of that bank beginning in the 1940s. I lived away from Bonifay for a period beginning about 1985 and until 1998, and when I returned to Bonifay in 1998, I used what was then Southtrust, because of the convenience that Southtrust existed in the city from which I moved to Bonifay from in 1998, access to services, etc., in course of my retiring and moving. But, after the bank was purchased by the Medley family at a point afterward, I went back to the Bank of Bonifay, a family institution. In the course of that time after the Medley ownership came into being, and the Board of Directors that was named in the course of that change, based on information that was published, were all people that I knew, personally, that I had did business with at their places of ownership. The news article in your paper does not name any names, that I recognize, so rst do you have access to the names of the members of the board of directors that received undeserving loans, that approved unsustainable loans, that were guilty of acting in questionable activities, and if so why were they not printed in the course of the article? Sincerely,L. Ray BrooksBonifay Letter to the EDITORBank story bothers readerBecause my personal knowledge of the county is limited to Bonifay and surrounding area, if I write about other areas, I depend on the Heritage of Holmes County, which was published in 2006. But I do like to include other areas as my readership includes the whole county. Beulah Anna Community is one area that is described in the history and submitted by Nora M. Morrison. I might have been to a meeting of the Holmes County Baptist Association there in the past, and I remember going there to a Holmes County Homemakers Club meeting there when Hiram was a very small child more than 50 years ago. Then it was called Belin, and Id often wondered is it Belin or is it Beulah Anna? Mrs. Morrison says the history of the community goes back to her grandmother, Ida Padgett, who was born in the late 1800s. She lists other family names that she remembers as Ventry, Griggs, Cook, Hathaway, Carter, Stewart, Spears, Burgess, Cillis, Leavins, Davis, Galloway, Powell, Covington, Crowder, Weeks, Coursey, Johnston, Petty, Miles, Helms, Lister, Anderson, Mixon and Hobbs. Like most communities in this area, the logging industry was what brought development to the area. A log train ran from Geneva, Ala., to Freeport, Fla., when she was a child. She remembers a huge saw dust pile near her home, where a saw mill had been. This provided a lot of entertainment for neighborhood kids as a place to play. She mentions a neighbor, Dewey Padgett, who worked the turpentine woods collecting the raw gum. I think this was called dipping boxes. The gum was carried to waiting barrels in a central location where she remembers a big truck coming and picking them up. In the summer of 1910, Mrs. Mable Shy and Mrs. Ila Padgett discussed the need for a Sunday School in the community. The only available building was a shanty in the colored quarters of Mr. W.J. Belins turpentine still located at what is now Coursey Road. Mr. Belin offered it as a meeting place for Sunday School. Later, when he moved to Port St. Joe, he gave the stills commissary to the community for a church. (For my younger readers, a commissary was a store owned by the company who operated the turpentine still. Most of the employees lived in housing provided by the owners, and they bought their supplies from the commissary. Usually, they would charge their purchases against their draw. They had to be careful or they would be like the old song says, I owe my soul to the company store.) Mr. Frank Padgett gave the land for the church and the buildings were moved there. It became Belin Baptist Church and Belin Public School. Mr. Padgett had a daughter named Beulah, for whom he wanted to name the church/school. Mrs. Emma Padgetts daughter was named Mary Anna, and she wanted it named for her daughter. So the comprise reached was to change the name from Belin to Beulah Anna. The writer of the article walked to school with other families in the community. In a 1918 chart in the Heritage book submitted by Helen Commander Galloway, Belin School is listed with 37 pupils, all in one room, I suppose, and the teacher was Miss Oma Padgett (Cotton). She is the sister of my Uncle Josh Wells wife, my aunt Anna Padgett Wells, who was a long time teacher in Holmes, Washington and Bay counties. I have no record of when Belin or Beulah Anna closed, but it operated until it was consolidated with Leonia. The church still is an active Southern Baptist Church. Mrs. Morrison told of gospel singings at the church in her youth and the good home-cooked dinners served on the grounds. She also recalled singing schools, Vacation Bible Schools and annual revivals where services were held twice a day, an 11 a.m. service and an evening service for a full week. The visiting preacher and the pastors family were always invited to someones home for lunch and supper. I remember some of those things, especially having the revival preacher and the pastor and family for supper, but I am not sure I could have managed both lunch and supper. Even with all our modern conveniences, nowadays we would probably just take them to a restaurant. Belin/Beulah Anna is just one example of the communities that shaped the history of Holmes County.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, August 7, 2013By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Still undefeated, the Holmes County Dixie Youth All Stars headed back to Alexandria, La. on Aug. 1 to represent not only Holmes County, but the State of Florida and the United States as well at the World Championships. On behalf of Bonifay Kiwanis Club, President Carlton Treadwell presented a donation of $250 to the Holmes County Dixie Youth All to help pay for expenses on their trip to Alexandria, La. We were undefeated in District and State, said Rodd Jones on behalf of the Dixie Youth All Stars. Were excited to be going and hope to make a good show just as weve done last year. David Lauen, associate pastor and minister of music of the First Baptist Church of Bonifay, gave an update on their recent mission trip to Honduras that started on June 15. For almost 12 years, Lauen has been leading mission trips to Honduras, but this year was the biggest trip by far. Weve been making trips to Honduras since 2001 and like I said before weve got around six to 30 volunteers but this time we ended up taking 65 volunteers, said Lauen. The majority of the group came from Marianna, so much so we had enough people to be known as the Florida Panhandle Team, which was amazing in itself. Their rst mission was to build a hospital and that took 10 years, now their mission is to expand the surgical rooms and capability with state of the art facilities, supplies, water supply and sanitation. Lauren explained that last year they were helping build the four new surgical rooms and during this years trip two of the rooms were ready and performing surgeries before they left. Its our hope that all four will be ready for use by time the next team arrives, said Lauren. The majority of their health issues stems from not having clean water to drink and it cause intestinal and other health issues. He gave a story about a man who rode over nine hours on horseback for a hemorrhoidectomy. That man would have no hope of getting help if the hospital wasnt there, said Lauren. The were even able to help him home because can you imagine riding back on horse back after a hemorrhoidectomy? Another story was about a little girl who fell out of a mango tree during mango season and fell on her face. There was extensive damage where muscle was torn ligaments were detached, he said. Dr. Christopher E. Nicholls was there for surgery and done such a ne job that within two weeks after surgery you couldnt tell anything happened to her. To think, if it hadnt been for the volunteer efforts of these outstanding doctors that child would have to live with that deformity for the rest of her life. They raised just over $10,000 to purchase medication for surgical procedures this year for this trip. When we rst got started it was a 50-foot by 100-foot hospital, then we added another 50-foot by 100-foot wing and then Samaritans Purse donated thousands for four state of the art operating rooms and it just keeps growing, said Lauen. Weve got over 26 surgical teams who donated their time and services. As the facility grows wonderful equipment is donated to ll it. The next big project they want to do for the hospital is bring in a 65-pound commercial washing machine to sterilize and disinfect all the blankets, sheets, towels, and linens for the hospital. Last year they mixed and poured 11 concrete oors for eight houses. They were living on dirt oors and every time it rained they would have water running through the house, said Lauen. Now they can have dry oors. An ongoing mission is to bring clean water to the residents homes. Their water system is pathetic, like most third world countries, he said. Were trying to lay out PVC pipes to put faucets at these houses. Last time we were able to bring them a 10,000 gallon water tank to help supply clean water. He said even though it has been quite a bit of hard work, it was worth it. I know that we hear a lot of questions about why arent these efforts focused on local missions, said Lauren. On one of these trips, in just one week, the life of that person is changed forever and in sending them we hope that they will bring that mentality back to help our local area. If you nd yourself just a pew warmer I hope this inspires you to get up and make a difference.Lauen updates Kiwanis on Honduras mission tripSPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISEROn behalf of Bonifay Kiwanis Club, President Carlton Treadwell presented a donation of $250 to the Holmes County Dixie Youth All Stars during their July 31 meeting, to help with expenses as the team heads to the World Championship in Alexandria, La.

By VALERIE GARMAN747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Floridas next generation of boaters will have an advantage in the safety department. State statute requires anyone born in 1988 or later to pass an approved safety course and have a photo ID and boater safety card in possession before heading out on the water. As the years go by, more and more boaters will have taken advantage of the boater education course, said Stan Kirkland, regional spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The intention is to get people to think about safety things that they might not otherwise think about. In 2012, 40% of the FWC-issued boater safety cards went to persons 21 years of age or younger. Though not required for un-motorized vessels, operators of any vessel powered by 10 horsepower or more, including most personal watercraft, must carry the card. An FWC-approved course will be held Saturday at MarineMax Panama City, located next to Treasure Island Marina on Thomas Drive from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. About Boating Safety is a beginner course designed by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and touches on boating law, safety equipment, navigation, boating problems and more. MarineMax broker and senior sales consultant Bob Fowler began offering the courses to area boaters 12 years ago and now leads the class on the rst Saturday of every month. Anyone who is on the water should take it, said Fowler, who noted the course can also lead to insurance discounts. When youre getting insurance on your vessel, with a certi cate from this class, you can get anywhere from a 10 to 30 percent discount. The cost for the class is $35 for the rst family member and $20 for each additional family member. Cost includes all class materials and lunch. Wednesday is the deadline to register for the Saturday class. MarineMax also hosts a Women on Water boater safety course every other month. Fowler said the goal of the handson course is to help women gain more con dence on the water. Women on Water or WOW is taught in two parts: one part in the classroom and one on the water. Kirkland said most states have moved toward requiring boater education courses and in general those states have also seen accident rates decline. An FWC report on boating accidents in 2012 found the group most likely to be involved in accidents was middle age or older males with some boating experience but no boating safety course completion. Of the 704 reported accidents last year, 55 resulted in fatalities, 42 percent from falls overboard. Alcohol or drug use resulted in 11 percent of fatalities. Theres nothing under Florida law that prohibits a person from consuming alcohol on a vessel, but the operator cannot be under the in uence and the (FWC) of cers look for this, Kirkland said. If youre operating a vessel under the in uence, you dont get a lick on the hand, youre arrested.

The reason for this is the weather. We all love to hear the rain on the roof but not every day and night. Cussing Cousin has a friend he befriended on the pier some years back and that friendship has turned out to be a weather night mare. Every time this fellow comes to the beach the weather is bad. One year he came and we had a hurricane. I think he must have bought property down here because the weather has been a mess for weeks. The gulf looks like dark tea. But Im being told offshore it is relatively clear about ten to fteen feet below the surface. That makes sense; freshwater is lighter than saltwater so it oats on top. It still looks terrible on the surface. In the bay it is the same way. It seems it would be stained all the way to the bottom. Stained or not there are reports of grouper being caught in the bay in relatively shallow water. If you dont have any spots in the bay to grouper sh I would suggest going under the various bridges here in Saint Andrews Bay. Under Hathaway Bridge grouper and red sh gang up around the pilings. Finding the right piling is the challenge. Remember now these are the same grouper you catch offshore so dont come to a gun ght with a knife. Use the same gear you would use offshore. The older bridges like the DuPont Bridge that have been around for a while must have holes and broken concrete under them because the grouper can and will hang you up before you can get the line tight. The seawall under the Port of Panama City certainly has holes cut into the sides of it because I have been told by divers it does. You would have to melt me and pour me into the water around the port before I would dive there. That is a scary place. I am almost certain the grouper under the DuPont Bridge are of enormous size. The last time I tried shing under that bridge I got broke off every time. I got to ght some of these sh for a short time but a very short time. The only way I gure you could catch one of these sh is to pull away from the piling a few feet and make the sh come out from under the bridge to get the bait. Down in Boca Grande they sh around the sulfur docks using live sting rays for bait. When they get a bite the boat handler guns the engine and pulls the grouper away from the pilings before it can get tangled up. Here it is a little different. In Boca Grande the water may be twenty to thirty feet deep under those pilings here it is forty feet or better under the bridges but I still think if you have a sharp crew you could drag these sh away from the pilings before they know they are hooked. Once away from the bridge piling you might have a chance. Not everything that lives under bridges are grouper. Red sh and black drum can be caught under all of our bridges. Last year in the summer time a guide from over Point Washington way was catching red sh under Hathaway Bridge like gang busters. The trick is to have the right bait. Last year the bay was full of pilchards but we also had about a third of the rain we are having this year. The Pilchards are hard to nd due to all the freshwater but the choffers arent. The choffers are starving to death obviously due to the stained water and they are easy to catch. Just sh over grass in about ve feet of water and you should catch all you want. Fishing under the bridges using live choffers is sort of like sticking your hand into a paper bag of spiders and scorpions. You never know what is going to bite you. You might get a grouper on a red sh or a black drum. All though a black drum would prefer a shrimp if she is big enough she will take a choffer. Black drum of over forty pounds arent uncommon in our bays. I cant comment in a good way on the taste of the black drum I certainly wouldnt have the girl friend over for a candle light dinner with wine and black drum. Well, lets back up yes I would have candle light that way she wouldnt be able to see what she was eating. Sort of like eating cow horns when you could eat steak. Like everything else if you know where to go large speckled trout are being caught all over the bay. I have seen some ne trout caught in North Bay as well as West Bay and East Bay. I am not one of those people that know where to go. I missed almost the whole snapper season due to bad weather. It looks like Im going to miss most of the grouper season for the same reason. There is a rumor going around the feds are going give shermen back a few days this fall. I suggest you read this little document very carefully before you plan your trip this fall. A guy called me from Mexico Beach asking where on the FWC web site this information was located. You will not nd it on the FWC web site because they have nothing to do with giving back days in the fall this is all federal. The document states the feds are going to give X amount of extra days in October and a few paragraphs on down the line it says the number of days depends on the number of snapper caught in June. I wouldnt say this was the most confusing statement I had ever read but it is confusing. If I were writing a letter to Santa Clause it would resemble this kind of thinking. I might get what I want or I might not depending on how naughty or nice I was. If it turns out we caught too many snapper we get very few days. The best thing I can gure is to not get our hopes up to high that way if they dont give us what we wanted we wont be crushed. If they give us Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net By CHRIS OLWELL747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH When the sheriffs of ce changed the way they patrol the beach, of cials said that while there would be fewer deputies on the sand, the deputies on the beach would be better trained and equipped to rescue swimmers in trouble. On Wednesday that training was on display at Rick Seltzer Park, where about eight of the 22 deputies assigned to the Bay County Sheriffs Of ce Beach Precinct participated in a training session. The goal is get the deputies certied by the United States Lifesaving Association We are not a lifeguard service, Lt. Steve Nagy said. We are cops that are able to do water rescues. Basic law enforcement standards training doesnt require potential police to swim, so dont call members of the BCSOs beach precinct basic. Beach precinct deputies have been specially chosen because of their af nity for the water, Maj. Tommy Ford said. They are former Navy divers, the sons of lifeguards, and ex-lifeguards themselves. They are all trained in water rescue, so theyre certi ed to save people in swimming pools. But this is surf rescue training. Its one thing to save someone from drowning in a swimming pool; someone with the right equipment can do that without getting wet, said Carol Wagner of the Panama City Beach Police Departments Beach and Surf Patrol. The training they do a couple times a week is to familiarize the deputies with their equipment and develop a sort of comfort in dangerous surf conditions. Deputy Odis Lansford called it a respect short of fear. The deputies also practice swimming against the current to build their stamina and endurance. Its physically exhausting to do the rescue itself, said Nagy, who has performed dozens of rescues. Youve got to get out here and get exhausted on your own to get used to that feeling, knowing that youve got to keep going. Deputies in the beach precinct know these waters like the back of their hands, said Lt. David Baldwin, and they wear swim trunks underneath their uniforms. They can spot rip currents, in part because they know where rip currents tend to form and because theyve been doing what they do for as long as they have. Even though most or all of the deputies on the beach have performed a surf rescue, only a handful are certi ed by the USLA. Its not uncommon for a deputy to get into trouble during a rescue. Its happened at least once this year already. Its a very dangerous assignment for them, Ford said. Its very important that we give them the proper training and the proper tools. The deputies of the beach precinct, as Nagy and others have said, are still police. They still have to patrol the streets, deal with car crashes, medical emergencies, criminals, victims. They try to deploy a couple deputies as near the sand as possible to respond to water calls, but that means deputies in other areas have to scramble to keep up with their responsibilities, Baldwin said. Deputy Ray Maulbeck recently retired from the BCSO before returning. During his retirement he worked as a lifeguard at the beachs only lifeguard station near the city pier with Daniel Shelley. Now hes a cop again, but hes leading the surf rescue training. Basically, we all have to do the work of 20 lifeguards in a this six miles of beaches, were all we have out here, Maulbeck said. So these guys have to be cops and then all of a sudden respond at a moments notice and be surf rescue, so we try to train in accordance with the USLA lifeguard association techniques. The spot where they trained Wednesday was chosen because of its tendency to generate the kind of nasty rips that get swimmers in trouble. Those rips come in handy for rescuers, who use the currents to pull them out to distressed swimmers quickly. Shelley, aka Safety Dan, is a lifeguard, not a cop, but he joined the deputies for training Wednesday. The work of a lifeguard is more about preventing people from entering into dangerous situations than rescuing people. But if there arent any lifeguards its best to have trained rescuers, he said. This stuff is a start to having safer beaches, you know? Shelley said.

By PAT McCANNNews Herald Executive Sports Editor Most high school baseball coaches in Bay County stop short of giving a blanket approval of summer travel ball teams helping stock their programs with more experienced players. Make no mistake, theyre eager to welcome an athlete who has competed against a high level of competition in his age group and may have an advanced knowledge of the game. But they are proceeding with caution, and want to keep open lines of communication with local youth coaches, especially when it comes to pitchers entering their summer high school programs. The latter statement alludes to another factor in the equation. High school coaches are willing to work with youth coaches in enabling participation on 13U and 14U travel teams for players old enough to also be in high school summer programs. They dont want to relinquish control, which is understandable in many regards. I think the biggest thing I see is the kids are used to playing in more higher pressure environments, Bozeman coach Jeff Patton said of travel ball players entering high school. And seeing some velocity. I dont know if poised is necessarily the word, but theyve all played in championship games. The biggest thing (travel ball) is hurting are the kids not quite as talented, theyre losing out on getting to play baseball. You have the high achievers, but the other ones get lost in the shuf e. Patton guided his team to the Class 1A Final Four in each of the past two seasons. He said he prefers teenaged players to be in his summer program, but does so with a caveat. If theyre going to be a JV player I want them still to play travel ball, Patton said. I want to make time for them to do that. If theyre ghting to be starting on varsity in the spring thats something else. But a kid is only 14 once, so Im a little more exible. The only thing Ive asked is that if Im going to pitch a kid I dont want them to pitch for a travel ball team that week. If theyve pitched, I just want to communicate. I dont want to overthrow a kid. Mosley coach Todd Harless echoed the same concern. With young arms I wish theyd have pitch counts or throw them only so many times per week, and I worry if theyve had the proper stretching and strengthening, said Harless, whose team was state runner-up in Class 6A in May. Kids that are 14 shouldnt come up and tell you their arms hurt. I think theres pros and cons. Yeah, they get to play a good number of games against good competition, and when they get to high school dont have that out-oftown nervousness the rst time. Another good thing is that if theyre around good coaches its got to help them fundamentally. Harless prefers that all his players come under the Mosley summer ball umbrella, but does make exceptions for athletes competing for elite travel teams at various ages. Part of the reason involves team chemistry. He is a rm believer that taking his summer high school team to compete in major tournaments the past few years helped forge the resiliency of last years Dolphins ballclub. And if hes older he needs to be part of the leadership group, Harless said. This is the rst time Ive ever had older kids on summer travel teams. The last group I had was trying to accomplish their goal together and they did. Harless isnt taking Mosley as a team to major tournaments this summer, but is coaching two teams in elite events and bringing six or seven of his players to each of them. I do require them to be with us at certain times this summer, he said. I do have a bigger in uence of (travel) kids coming in this year than I have had in the past. Travel ball has kind of taken over. But I will say this, one of the best weve had in the last three years (Jordan Larry) had very little travel ball growing up. He came into Mosley and nobody knew who he was. Larry batted .500 his nal high school season and will play junior college baseball next season. Rutherford coach Jon Hudson laments the loss of various age-group programs in Millville, Springeld and Parker that once fed his program, and said he doesnt get an in ux of travel ball players from year to year. He does have, however, have standout Nick Nelson playing for the older level Lynn Haven Black Sox which elds two age 17-19 teams. Mitch Kelly at Arnold has seen more travel ball players come his way the past few years, especially as youth baseball in Panama City Beach has experienced a growth boom. Frank Brown (Park) has really done a good job, and when there is a good group of kids they try to keep them together, Kelly said. If theyre all zoned for us there is a thought of lets keep them together as much as we can. As ninthgraders theyre ahead of the game. Kelly said many athletes with travel ball backgrounds are advanced more than just physically. Terminology is probably a bigger aspect, he said. They know bunt and run, the slash play. We have some freshmen coming in that we have to teach basic rudimentary stuff. It truly comes down to the coaches and dads running travel ball. If theyre going to take that much time and money theyre going to want to teach these kids the best way. Travel ball coaches are saying they want them to be ahead of the curve when they get here in ninth grade. Kelly said he prefers players compete in Arnolds summer program, but he tries to distribute his summer schedule as far in advance as possible. In that way, when the Marlins arent competing, it frees some of his players for travel ball tournaments. He also communicates with coaches of various teams about when certain players are pitching, and also puts that responsibility on the kids to keep him informed. One other possible stumbling block for high school coaches is when a certain philosophy might contrast with how a player has been instructed by a youth coach. In that instance, Kelly or a member of his staff might impart something to a player and get a response thats not how Coach Smith told me to do it. We dont put up with that, Kelly said. We know were not the only coach theyve had, but its like I tell my 5-year-old, when you go to T-ball what a coach tells you, do it his way. They have to know were going to do things our way. Some travel ball coaches, such as Brian Thomas of the 9U Lynn Haven Dolphins, feel they have the bigger picture in mind. At one time I thought it was the worst thing in the world to play travel ball, Thomas said. But now I think it makes them better baseball players heads above. I think it really helps the kid. If they like it and dont get burned out they can play 40-50 games a year. I dont care about winning. Weve won a bunch of tournaments and were second in a ton of them but I want to make these kids better, and when they get to high school it makes everybody better.SOFTBALLSoftball differs in that the high schools dont have viable summer programs for their athletes. Not really, we do some stuff in the fall, but they pretty much play where they want to play in the summer, Mosley coach Brian Wilke said. Its worked out good, because some at a high level want to go to travel ball and play tournaments. Some not as much. In the future, high school softball could become even more dependent on travel teams. I havent done any research on it, but would guess there are 20-30 percent less girls playing in high school, Wilke said. We struggled last year to have a JV team. This year is pretty much the same thing. There will come a day well have to recruit kids already in high school. Find kids playing in a P.E. class and talk them into coming out. Wilke said that when he started coaching eight years ago at Mosley 40 girls might come out for softball and he ended up cutting 10-15 players. Now, he said, hes cutting one or two at most. Its pretty much if you come out, youre on the team. Travel ball has made an impact on talent level for those who remain. I think our best players are better, the top 10 percent in Bay County are better, but I think our middle to end are worse, Wilke said. Most teams have ve pretty good players. We were lucky to have seven or eight last year while making a run to the region championship game. Rutherford also had a highly successful season while posting its rst district championship and rst region win in school history. Coach David Barron said that it is a misconception that various 14U and 16U organizations are feeder programs for selected schools. Absolutely not, we have girls who play for Rutherford that play on other travel teams as well, said Barron, who also coaches the 16U Chaos travel team. Last year six or seven of our (Chaos) girls played for Mosley. Barron said there is a difference in talent level with girls that have played travel ball versus those who only have a rec league background. His 2013 Rams teams was the rst time every member of the squad had a travel background. Theres no comparison, Barron said. In high school were limited to 25 games. Last year (Chaos) played 120 games at a high level. Everything is more natural for them as far as reaction time and how they deal with adversity. Not just my girls, but Mosley and Arnold. They know what its like to play under pressure. Some girls play outside of Bay County during the summer. Wilke said that pitchers Katie Lopes and Jill Johnson both are competing on select teams based in other cities, as is pitcher Kirsten Taylor for Rutherford.LYNN HAVEN BLACK SOXAnother age group that has emerged for baseball is provided by the Lynn Haven Black Sox, where players 17-19 have a continued option to compete. The Black Sox attracted enough players to eld two teams this summer, their schedule not beginning under the high schools and colleges have completed their seasons. We had a tryout with 53 players, I used to do it by invitation, said organizer and head coach Corey Chizmar, in his ninth year of heading the Black Sox. I advertised in the paper, and just word of mouth. This year I had 12 I had no idea who they were. Chizmar said he charges players $500 up front to play, the season consisting of about eight tournaments including the Dizzy Dean state tournament the Black Sox were scheduled to host this weekend. Players from outside Bay County, such as Pensacola and Tallahassee where Chizmar said no similar age-group team exists, are charged $350 to ease their mileage expenses. The team practiced for about a week and a half prior to the rst tournament, but doesnt practice thereafter meeting up for tournaments at a local Winn-Dixie to car pool. Players pay for their gas and food, but lodging and tournament fees are taken care of, the sponsorship of Panama City Toyota helping fund the teams. I love the game of baseball, its my passion, Chizmar explained his commitment. He said the Black Sox, who use Mosley High School as a home eld, exist to provide a vehicle for high school graduates to get added exposure with college scouts or give those already playing baseball an avenue to keep their skills sharp. A little bit of both, Chizmar said. As an example Ive got two kids from Wakulla who tore up their knees (in football) and didnt play baseball their senior season. Brady Colburn (Rutherford) went to Marion last season but was hurt a lot and were giving him a chance to get back up to speed. I see a bright future for the Black Sox with the talent level we have in Bay County.CONCLUSIONSThe current structure de ning rec leagues and summer travel teams likely will remain in place in the coming years. Having the rec league experience come under the auspices of park and recreation departments could be the model that survives, with parents already strapped in providing nancial resources looking to diminish how much volunteer time they have to fundraise and govern youth baseball and softball opportunities. In the more distant future, that somehow could evolve into one countywide program, but the cooperation and perhaps funding for such an endeavor currently does not exist. What could develop, however, if the number of travel teams continues to expand are leagues that play weekly March through May featuring a travel team-only level, in addition to another level geared more for the rec player. Travel ball (tournament participation) would continue as the sole option during the summer months. We would love to get something together around Bay County, I think its absolutely going in that direction, said Josh Parker of the Beach Bashers travel ball organization. In that way, both a more introductory skill level (rec ball) and advanced (travel ball) could be accommodated without numbers diminishing. And again, thats not to demean the rec leagues or insinuate those players are inferior. There are a number of elite ballplayers at that level, too, just not as many of them as in the past and there is a good chance more and more of them will be tempted by travel ball teams. Thats no fun for either side, Parker said when disparate talent levels are forced to compete against each other. I think in maybe a couple more years (separate divisions) should be in place. Brian Thomas, coach of the Lynn Haven Dolphins 9U travel team has seen other cities adopt that model and basically form A and B leagues within their organizational structure. Other issues could arise in the future, or merely be exacerbated. Among them will be finding enough adults with the time to coach teams if more and more kids participate, and as Part II suggested, whether enough umpires will be available to officiate games. A drastic shift in the landscape, however, could affect the future of high school baseball and softball in Bay County, as well as all other areas. School district funding for those sports has decreased dramatically over time with parents already supporting various prep programs financially. And it needs to be pointed out that the business community here has been a solid partner in a sponsorship and supportive role for all levels of baseball and softball. The balance of control at some extent, eventually could shift to almost completely outside the realm of the schools. In that sense, 20 years from now another writer might be waxing eloquently about the good old days. He perhaps would be referring to those we are experiencing now.League of Their Own Part 5: Impact on County High School Programs SPORTS www.bonifaynow.comWednesday, August 7, 2013 APage 7Section

Find a database of the 68 banks featured in this series, related documents and other stories in the series at newsherald.com.)By MICHAEL BRAGA and ANTHONY CORMIER Halifax Media MARIANNA Chipola Community Bank could not be accused of aggressive growth. Founded in Marianna as First Capital Bank in October 2005, Chipola never had more than $40 million in loans on its books, but its focus on commercial developers proved its undoing. Bad loans began to accumulate in 2009 and rapidly ate into the banks capital, a Herald-Tribune investigation found. After getting hit with a regulatory order in 2010, the bank changed its name to Chipola Community and began looking for fresh funds. In June 2012, it looked as if it might receive a $3 million infusion from a group of Latin American investors, according to the South Florida Business Journal. Regulators stopped the deal in its tracks. The investment group was headed by Harold Connell, the former president and chief executive of Security Bank in North Lauderdale, which had failed just a month earlier. Connell was ned twice by the Of ce of the Comptroller of the Currency for failing to meet regulatory requirements and for hiring a top executive who had a criminal record, so regulators thwarted his attempt to gain control of the Panhandle bank. Though Chipola was overseen by the Florida Ofce of Financial Regulation, regulatory reports will not be public until April 2014. The FDIC has not issued an analysis of the failure.

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Museum offers class in basket weavingSpecial to ExtraCHIPLEY Saturday, Aug. 3, was a busy day at Washington County Historical Museum. In addition to the museums weekend visitors, the museum hosted a Beginning Basket Weaving Class. Class instructor Sharon Hynes, who can boast of more than 30 years of basket weaving experience, said, I took a class at a cultural arts center, and Ive been weaving ever since! Hynes and her assistant, Yvette Lerner, prepared a pre-cut reed kit for each student and provided handson instructions on taking a bundle of reeds and creating a beautiful, handmade basket. In a just little more than two hours, students were able to take home their completed gathering basket and had acquired the basic skills to begin weaving their own reed baskets at home. The art of basket weaving is a heritage handicraft an important craft we want to keep alive, said museum director Dorothy Odom. What object evokes more nostalgic memories of our past? Almost everyone can remember a favorite Easter basket, market baskets, Grandmas little button basket and her sewing basket, baskets that carried cotton from the eld, eggs from the chicken yard, and laundry from the line. We hope to offer additional weaving classes later this year. Check our website at www. washingtoncountyhistoricalsociety. org for information on all our activities. Scott appoints 2 to Florida Housing Finance CorporationMoving to a new area can be a stressful ordeal for all involved, especially your pets. The chaos of packing, moving furniture and the strangeness of a new area can leave your cat or dog spinning. However, with a little advance planning, patience and affection, you can help your pet quickly adjust to their new neighborhood. Before you move, make sure that your pet is current on their immunizations and that you have any health statements or documentation, like your pets rabies certicate, that may be required in your new area, said Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Also, its important to start preparing early since interstate moving requires an interstate health certicate, which is issued within 10 days of travel, and moving abroad means your pet will need an international health certicate which takes around 30 days to facilitate. When it comes time to actually start the move, making sure your pet is safe and comfortable is essential. Pets will often get nervous when the packing starts, so it is vital to try and alleviate this anxiety by sticking to a normal routine with your pet by having regular play times, walks, meals, etc. While youre traveling, its crucial that your pet be in a carrier if at all possible to ensure the safety of the pet as well as the cars occupants, Eckman said. You should also make sure to factor in rest stops for the pet that include snack and water breaks. For these rest stops, make sure to have a reliable collar or harness to keep the pet safe and from running away. When traveling by plane, it is important to remember that many pets do well once they are actually on the plane and settled. The FFA prefers that pets not be heavily sedated during ights, especially those that are ying cargo, because of safety concerns. If you are concerned about your pet, your veterinarian can help you develop strategies to aid your pets anxiety of ying. Often, these will need to be tested at home before traveling in case the pet has adverse reactions, so you will need to allow time for this. When you nally arrive at your new home, it is important to make sure that the area is safe and secure for your pet, Eckman said. Look for items that may have been left over from previous tenants, like traps, chemicals, or tools, and make sure that the homes perimeter is secure. You should then let your pet get used to their new home and surroundings, and try to get back into a normal routine with them as quickly as possible.WEDNESDAY10 a.m. to noon: Holmes Council on Aging provides hot meals and socialization. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.: Vernon Historical Society Museum open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Meetings are fourth Wednesdays at 2 p.m. 11 a.m.: Washington Council on Aging senior lunches; for reservations, call 638-6217. 1 p.m.: Line dancing, Washington Council on Aging in Chipley. 7 p.m.: Depression and Bipolar Support Group at First Baptist Church educational annex building in Bonifay.

Faith BRIEFS It was my birthday and I decided to celebrate it as lowkey as possible. I am at that stage in life where I really do not need presents from anybody reminding me of how old I really am. I know every present represents an obligatory return on the gesture and at my age, I do not have the energy to return anything. All I really need is just a friendly Happy Birthday. I have developed a special rule along that line. For every Happy Birthday I receive, I am allowed one slice of birthday cake. So far I am on my 19th birthday cake and anticipating more. The rule about saying Happy Birthday is that as long as there is a six-month period either way, it is still in play. I am looking forward to a lot more Happy Birthday greetings. After all, what do you get a person who has had as many birthdays as I have had that would be original and surprising? Believe me, I have enough ties. Of course, cash is always in good taste. Throughout the years I have been known to pull a few surprises on the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonages birthday but nobody has been able to reciprocate. That is, until recently. It was the day of my birthday when suddenly I began receiving emails and phone calls and they all had one theme. Not one of them was wishing me happy birthday but all were concerned about an email they allegedly received from me. According to this email, I was in Manila, Philippines on some mission trip. Actually that was not quite unusual because several years ago I did go on such a trip and most of my friends knew it. Now, according to this friendly email being sent to my friends, I was back in the Philippines on another mission trip. According to this anonymous friend, I was stranded in the Philippines. I had been robbed, my passport had been con scated, and I needed money to get out of the Philippines. No wonder I have been feeling tired lately! Of all the birthday presents a person might receive this one really beats the birthday cake. I would not have thought of this in 1 million years. My email account had been hacked into and all of my email contacts were sent what seemed to be an emergency email. Most of my friends were relieved to nd out that I was not stranded in the Philippines. My Korean publisher actually was willing to put up money to rescue me from my situation. Two other people were trying to nd out how to get money to bail me out. The thing that worries me along this line is of all of my friends only three were willing to bail me out nancially. I must make a mental note of this and never get stranded in the Philippines. My birthday hacking became a little more than I at rst thought. At rst it was a little joke, ha ha ha, I am really not in the Philippines. A joke can only go so far. I thought it was the end of the joke, but boy, was I in for a wonderful birthday surprise. My entire email account had been compromised and a new email address was inserted so all of the response would go to another person. I nally found out how he changed my account, changed it back and changed my password. All of my emails for the past month, including important ones from my publisher and agent, were lost in the mysterious world of the Internet. Somewhere in that mystifying world, my emails are oating around not knowing whither to cometh or goeth. Delving deeper into my birthday hacking present I discovered that although my email contacts were missing, where I once had over 600 email contacts, I now had exactly none. How do you deal with none? I now do not know who my friends really are. Their addresses are gone. How do I contact them? I am beginning to think this birthday hacking present is not all it is hacked up to be. Now, my post birthday activity will be salvaging all of those email contacts. I suppose it is good every once in a while to start over again. I guess there is something good about getting a fresh start in life. I have often thought of it myself but never in this context. I would like to know who my birthday benefactor really is. I would like the opportunity to properly and fully acknowledge and express to this person my true feelings about him face-toface, and not on Facebook. After all, thank you does not always say it. I think I now appreciate Josephs feelings towards his brothers who caused him so much trouble. But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive (Genesis 50:20 KJV). I am still looking for the good in this situation. For one, I am not stranded in the Philippines without any money. I am at home without money, but that is a different story. Although he hacked my email account, he did not touch my soul. A rumor can never hurt you if you really know the truth. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att. net.
