Every year there is a chance for a new chair and vice chair and its time again to vote for the 201314 year, said County Attorney Jeff Goodman. The board approved of allowing 911 Director Clint Erickson to purchase a new scanner for $7,300 with a $500 credit from the lowest bidder using capital outlay funds designated solely for equipment for the 911 department. The board approved of advertising for the position of secretary for the Building Department with the assurance that a recommendation could be presented to the board for approval during a special called meeting on Dec. 16, 17 or 18 in order to give the retiring secretary time to train the new employee. The board also agreed with Commissioner David Whitakers suggestion to add in the description that the position is for a ve-day work week at 35 hours per week, extending it from the present fourday work week. The board approved of paying $242.63 for maintenance and repairs for the Gritney Fire Department generator. We dont give them near enough to operate, said Williams. Board approved a request by Susan Harris, Director of the Holmes County Public Library, to close the Holmes County Public Library from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 12 to celebrate the librarys 40th anniversary, which will be held at the librarys annex. Well all be at the annex, so if anyone does show up theyre welcome to join us, said Harris.

Principals, school staff, school board members, emergency management and law enforcement alike gathered for a joint-effort exercise to prepare them in case the unthinkable situation of a school shooter should ever happen. Wed like to think that it would never happen here and it would never happen to us, said Eddie Dixon, superintendent of Holmes County schools. But when you see the interviews after something like this happens the most you ever hear is how they didnt think that it would ever happen in their community and how it was done by people they would have never thought Coley, Gaetz visit Holmes CountyBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org BONIFAY Speaker pro tempore Marti Coley and Senate President Don Gaetz visited Holmes County to listen to comments, questions and concerns from the residents and representatives of Holmes County on Dec. 2 at the Holmes County District School Board for the 2014 Regular Session of the Florida Legislature. City Councilman Roger Brooks was present on behalf of the City of Bonifay to request funding in the amount of $500,000 to go toward their ongoing water project. The existing water distribution system includes much of the original piping which is more than 50 years old, said Brooks. The system doesnt provide adequate re protection in all areas, requires continuous maintenance and is in need of replacement to maintain public health and safety. Several potable water pipe replacement projects have been completed, however, there is much of the system still in need of replacement. He explained that there was cause for concern for residents health because the majority of distribution lines were originally constructed with asbestos, cement and cast iron pipe that has now deteriorated. Most of the system was constructed with two-inch to four-inch diameter pipes which are inadequate in size and the two-inch lines are not in compliance with state requirements and some of the old pipes include lead joints which are prone to leak and are also a concern for health and safety, he added. The city is experiencing up to 31 percent water loss from the amount pumped and has safety concerns with the leaking water lines, said Brooks. As the lines leak they can create subsurface voids prior to collapsing at the surface; with many of the line beneath the roadway, this can create a driving hazard. Also, during installation and maintenance of adjacent utilities, caution is required for trench excavation near the water lines. He said that the city has been able to prevent many health issues by quickly responding to pipe repairs while issuing boil water notices when loss of pressure occurs during repairs. Replacing the old deteriorated pipes with the appropriate size pipe is LIGHTS IN THE PARKCECILIA SPEARS | Times-AdvertiserIts beginning to look a lot like Christmas as the City of Bonifay prepares for this years Parade of Lights and Celebration in the Park starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday with a parade of lights making their way down Waukesha Street and proceeding to Veterans Memorial Park where everyone is invited to share hot dogs and hot chocolate while children visit with Santa Claus.

It is good news for our waste water plant because we were the only ones who got the grant this time, said Zafar.

City Grant Writer Bob Jones also stood before legislation to plead their cause. Were trying to be proactive, said Jones. Were already entering in phase two and now we are in need of funding for phase three. I know funding is limited so we wanted to start earlier than we did last year. Gaetz commended the City of Bonifay for their continued efforts in this project as well as their well-prepared presentation. It shows what the city is committed to and it helps show that instead of the state bailing some city out of a crisis that instead it would be a partnership, said Gaetz. Coley said that a lot of water system funding was denied last year and that she and Gaetz came before them to explain the importance of this funding to improve water systems. We tried to explain why water projects are important and Ive got a good feeling that they have more of an understanding this time around, said Coley. This is a team effort so well see what we can do if we work together. Executive Director of the Holmes County Tourist Development Council Raymond Thomas was the next to speak. Thomas said that for rural areas the Tourist Development Council isnt working as well as it could is due to inadequate funding. Rural areas are hurting and we need help, said Thomas. We need people to know that were more than beaches and airports around here. The Chinese are coming with over 60 places developed in the United States with zero being in the State of Florida. He said that there is an upcoming gathering of 562 Chinese developers attending a conference in Dothan at the amount of $800 per ticket and he said he already booked his ticket. Thomas requested that he not be the only representative from Florida present. Opportunity Florida has a good grasp on what needs to be done, said Coley. They just need to go back to its original intent of communicating with each individual counties. I also agree that we also have to have jobs in this area so that we and our kids and our grand kids dont have to move away to nd work. Gaetz informed everyone that there would be an announcement made the next day that would affect Holmes County and had to do with travel. Resident Charles Smith came before the legislative representatives to say that there needs to be more of an emphasis made on getting the children certied in technology. Were still teaching our children how to be farmers, said Smith. Pretty soon therell be no more blue-collar jobs because blue collar jobs are the easiest to kill in the technologically advanced society. Were just going to produce a lot of unemployed and under-educated children. Gaetz assured him that measures have already been implemented on making sure that students have industry certication and that there are incentives for teachers if they can produce industry certied students who are ready for the workforce. Superintendent of Schools Eddie Dixon thanked them for being able to attend the meeting. This is how a team works, said Gaetz. Dont be shy with your concerns. Call us, email us, visit us or invite us over because we do neighborhood sessions and we do a lot better when we listen better. Coley said she always enjoys her visits. Everyone has been so open and friendly here, said Coley. South Florida may have representatives on every block but weve got team work. The important thing is team work so dont be afraid to call us any time; our door is always open.

Thats when we should present them with a proposal to fund our water project in a $500,000 request. This is to apply for the next phase and if we keep asking enough people enough times we just might get funding for it all. Council Member Richard Woodham brought up once again the proposal to raise the water rates. In my experience it is better to raise it in small amounts over time and not wait several years and have to make a big jump, Jones said. Well look into the statistics for you. Woodham suggested the council investigate the possibility of having a proposal ready by the rst of the year. Weve got to do something, Mayor Lawrence Cloud said. We dont have the funds for everything we need to do for all of our residents. If we keep up at our current rate well nd ourselves in dire straits. A representative requested that a shed be replaced with a brick structure next to the Devils Den at Memorial Field for the Holmes County High School Blue Devils football team. The representative said they would use their own funds to build it. The council agreed to table the request until their attorney, Lucas Taylor, could look into the matter. The council approved of a proclamation presented by Herbert J. Kuntry Carter proclaiming Dixie Phonics to be recognized as a form of music unique to Tallahassee and the north Florida area. Grassroots American folk music has its origins in the Appalachian Mountains, Cajun music is identied with southern Louisiana, the form of music known as Texas Swing was created and developed in the state of Texas and bluegrass music traces its conception to rural Kentucky, Carter said. Due to the absence of a clearly identiable musical style in the city of Tallahassee and the general area of north Florida and south Georgia it is tting that Dixie Phonics be recognized as a cultural and artistic manifestation of music unique to Tallahassee and the north Florida area. Public Works Supervisor Jack Marell said there was a resident who received a clean-up notice that quickly retaliated with a request that the city move a 1.5-inch water pipe from his yard. The issue is that there is no documentation of an easement or city order to place the pipe there so ultimately it would be an issue between private property owners because if he insists on it being moved and it denies his neighbor water then hed be doing it at his own peril, Taylor said. The council agreed to look into moving the line. Hes just being aggravating because we gave him a letter to clean up, Woodham said. The council approved cutting down a pecan tree on Piccirillo Avenue. Tony Syfrett with Southeastern Surveying and Mapping Corporation came before the council with designs for a subdivision on Grifth Circle off of State Road 79 in Bonifay, stating he was told the subdivision was approved of in 2008. Jones told him council needed some clarication of what was approved in 2008 before the council could approve of anything and move on, which after much discussion was approved to be tabled until further review could be made. The council approved canceling their meeting set for Dec. 23, in recognition of the upcoming Christmas holiday. The next scheduled meeting of the Bonifay City Council is set for 6 p.m. on Dec. 9. for the bridge crew and presented the board with information for the next meeting for further discussion. Commissioner Bill Parish inquired about a further description for the Justice Assistance Grant for in-car cameras and Justice Assistance Grant in the amount of $1,483. He was told that the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce was receiving a grant for $12,000 to replace the in-car cameras with updated equipment from Direct Application funds from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement with a $6,000 grant match from the sheriffs ofce. Several positions within the county districts were discussed, one of which was Williams request during the last meeting that the position of bridge crew foreman be advertised extended out of just in-house. I dont want to disregard these who have applied in-house but Id still like to post it outside, said Williams. Goodman said that they were within their union contract to extend to advertising outside of the county pool of employees if those applying were still in their probationary period or if the employer was not comfortable with the qualications for those applying and strongly advised that Williams inform those applicants why they were not being selected at this time. Williams agreed to do as Goodman advised. Goodman informed him that after reviewing the list of in-house applicants that there was one applicant who qualied except for a probationary matter that could be an issue. However, if Williams wanted, he could create a one-time exemption for this employee. I want to advertise outside, said Williams. I dont want to make any exemptions so let him apply for it as an outside applicant. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners is set for 9 a.m. on Dec. 10, with a possible special session on Dec. 16, 17 or 18. The Dec. 31 meeting was canceled due to it being New Years Eve.

The day continued with practical exercises with a scenario set up where the staff did not know where or how the one playing the shooter was going to come in and after the exercise they were evaluated on their response and went through a brieng for improvements that should be made. We assessed the schools lockdown measures and the teachers actions, said Wanda Stafford, Emergency Management Director for Holmes County and the coordinator for the exercise.

That doesnt mean Judge William Wright was vindictive in the sense that the word is commonly understood when he sentenced Alicia Baxter to 20 years in prison; it means the circumstances of the sentencing create the presumption that the sentence imposed is improper, the court said. The First District Court of Appeal threw out Baxters sentence in a decision issued Wednesday. She is to be resentenced by a judge who has not been involved in her case or the case against her co-defendant. Judges in Florida are not prohibited from engaging in plea negotiations as long as they are impartial arbiters. Wrights off-therecord comments during the negotiations seem to reect something other than a dispassionate stake in the proceeding, the DCA wrote. That, coupled with the disparity between the offer and Baxters eventual sentence, create a reasonable likelihood Baxters ultimate sentence was imposed in retaliation for exercising her right to a jury trial rather than pleading guilty, the court found. This case is difcult because it is clothed in the emotionally-charged language of judicial vindictiveness, a doctrine so altered from its roots that as here relief may be warranted even if the trial judge was not vindictive as that word is ordinarily used and dened in the dictionary, the ruling said. Baxter and her boyfriend started a re in a Marianna hotel room when their shake-and-bake meth lab exploded. Baxters boyfriend was burned and the hotel, which was booked to capacity, was evacuated. She was charged with attempting to manufacture a controlled substance, possession of a listed chemical and arson of an occupied structure. Her boyfriend faced similar charges, and they were both offered similar plea deals: a year in the county jail followed by several years of probation. Her boyfriend took the deal. Baxter accepted the deal too, and Wright sentenced her as he said he would, but she withdrew her plea before the end of the hearing. Wright warned her she faced a possible maximum sentence of 50 years if she went to trial. Baxter said she understood. Its withdrawn. Set it for trial, Wright said. There aint no more talking. That day, Baxter left the courthouse and threw up while her public defender talked with Wright. She wanted to take the deal, the attorney said, but Wright decided not to go with through with another hearing that day because Baxter was ill. The next day, Baxter returned to court and apologized, saying she had been nervous. At some point that day, Wright told her attorney hed changed his mind and wouldnt accept the plea. Baxter was eventually convicted by a jury. Her sentence was 20 times greater than her boyfriends. Throughout negotiations, Wright made off-therecord comments to attorneys that cops didnt like the deal Baxter was being offered, and that the offer had been extended for the benet of Baxters public defender, the court said. The First DCA found that Wrights eventual decision that everyone should just do their jobs was commendable.

This home still stands and is kept and maintained by our sister, Muriel Wells Turner, and husband, Roy, as a Mecca, lighthouse, beacon, memorial and shrine, for the offspring of Hugh Thomas Wells and Marie Harris Wells. It was the desire of our parents that Muriel become owner of the old farm home, plus her share of the acreage owned by them. All of the siblings shared in ownership of a parcel of the open land our parents possessed at the time of their death. This year, Maria, the oldest daughter of Muriel, put together a Thanksgiving evening festive bon re inviting all the cousins that being the grandchildren of Hugh and Marie, to gather at the old home. Cousin Hiran Tison dug the pit for the re and provided ample kindling and rewood. The invitation was extended to the succeeding generation of youngsters, plus any adult to chose to attend. Included in the fun event was story telling, food and merriment, including string music by Hiram and Glen Tison, joined by Steven Wells and Emory Wells. The entire cousins ensemble sang the songs remembered from their grandfathers repertoire of music, including: The old man he was chasing his son round the barn, he was chasing his son round the barn, and as he was chasing his son round the barn, he was chasing his son round the barn! A second number goes like this: Hey, uncle Johnny, dont you want to buy my dog? He wont catch a chicken but he will catch a hog. Hes a nice little poodle and he plays yankee doodle-and he makes good sausage meatand he make good sausage meat! The Prattler recommends that you need not look for these recordings in music stores! A total of 44 came to enjoy the extravaganza, including the food, which was served in the open carport near the gigantic bon re. The chilly night brought out the coats and sweaters for attendees and also caused the very young to seek warmth around the heaters in the home. Older ones departed early for the heated comfort of their own homes. All four of our sons joined the cousins get together, Hester and I, along with all of the other siblings, allowed what may become an annual gathering for the third generation, to carry out the party all on their own. The two of us, along with Max and Joyce, did join Muriel and Roy for the Friday night after Thanksgiving supper of a pot luck bean soup and home made cornbread prepared as only Muriel can bake the delicacy so near to our mother Maries recipe. This event has become a tradition since the passing of both of our parents. Due to other demands of the holiday, plus sickness, the Thanksgiving night event did not draw the crowds as did the outdoor bon re. Referring to the adjectives describing the old home place in the rst paragraph in a number of ways, it is still felt that this location of our parents one and only home throughout their seventy-two years together, still serves well in all of categories listed. The American Heritage Dictionary gives one de nition of Mecca as a place regarded as a desirable goal. A Lighthouse is de ned as a tall structure topped by a powerful light used to guide ships. A strict interpretation of this application to our old home would best be seen in a gurative way. One description of beacon, is listed as anything that warns or guides, which may require some broad application, but seems to t for the purpose we are mentioning here. The word memorial has a dictionary de nition of the memory of a person or event, which, in this context, applies to more than one person and more than one event. In our every day living, we had in uential grandparents on both sides, and other relatives, plus a host of others whose home was our home and who made monumental contributions to our development. Page 362 of the Heritage of Washington County book has an article entitled Hugh Thomas Wells and Marie Harris Wells, Part II, and it uses as a theme if these walls could talk. It tells of the multitude of people, including some hitchhikers picked up off the highway with no money and no job, who came into our home and made some valuable impressions on all of our lives. The bon re activities obviously adds another chapter to the talking walls theory. Hopefully it, and other worthwhile, positive events, will continue to add proper memorials to our parents memory to show appreciation for the efforts made in child rearing and providing a home for eight children in some rather trying economic times. An adjective close to a memorial is shrine. Its de nition is: A site or object hallowed or revered for its history or association. A few years ago, a memorial sign was placed in front of our old home, in an effort initiated by our oldest brother, Jim, and the youngest one, Max, with the following wording: THE HOME PLACE OF HUGH AND MARIE WELLS, ESTABLISHED IN 1925. The siblings and other family members held a dedication ceremony to of cially unveil this sign to those who pass by and view what I openly call a sacred monument to the parents who worked hard, sacri ced, and taught us the best they knew about life. See you all next week.Holiday leads to thoughts of homePERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells So much of my life is controlled by cats I thought I might as well write some of the cat-ventures and cattastrophes of my life. Recently, there have been several. Last week, my friend Paula asked me to pick up her two coal black half grown kittens from the vet where she was taking them for spaying. She does so many things for me including feeding and taking care of our cats when we are gone that I was happy to oblige. I brought them home and left them in the carrier for an hour or so, then I released them on my glassed in porch and went on to the beauty shop. When I returned, the screen had been knocked out and two black cats were nowhere to be found. Soon, Jack spotted one being chased by Casper, one of our white outside cats, so we easily rescued Sister. But Onyx was nowhere to be seen. We scoured our and the neighbors property. I know why my brother Clyde always named his hunting dogs with a name beginning with a consonant. Try calling loudly, Onyx. I made at least six forays outside calling Onyx between the time Paula left with Sister after giving up the hunt and bed time. I dont know what the neighbors may have thought of this old lady outside calling kitty-kittykitty at 10 p.m. The next morning, Jack called me to come and look as he went out to get the paper. Onyx was underneath the sofa on the porch. She was there all the time, so black we couldnt see her. The next day, Maria, one of our inside cats decided to be an outside cat and I repeated the calling and searching the property, but when darkness fell, she showed up. It turned out, however, that she was ill and had to spend the next night with Dr. Brad. Maria is the most eccentric cat weve ever been owned by, and I think the reason for her illness was the addition of a bob tailed kitten with Siamese markings named Tebo to our menagerie. (No disrespect to Tim) One of her eccentricities is the adoption of three stuffed kittens which I already had, not to play with as Macie, my tabby Manx does. But, Maria calls them at bedtime with her mama cat call which she was deprived the privilege of ever using with real babies. Then, she selects one, the green, the pink, or the print stuffed kitten to bring to our bed. She is the talkingest cat weve ever owned. She talks sympatheticly when we cough or sneeze. She complains when I load or unload the dishwasher before she leaves the room in a huff. The kitten Tebo reminds us very much of Trouble, the 17 year old part ame point Siamese that was given to me by Jamie Owen. Tebo came to us from Kim Hudson Barber a Holmes County High School grad who is the Agri-Science teacher and FFA Advisor at Malone. Tebos doing his best to help me type this and nding functions on my computer that I havent discovered yet. His function was to have been replacing Trouble who is hanging on tenaciously. Trouble replaced Tip number two. Tip was a huge Siamese colored male with white tuxedo markings and white feet and tail tip. He was Jacks loyal companion, following him all over the blueberry eld like a dog. Maryanne Elam always asked me, Hows Tip? He lived to a ripe old age. My claim to fame with Marianne was giving her a black and white long haired PercyCat. Percy and Tip were the offspring of Crystal, a white semi long haired cat that my sister Muriel brought us from Marianna. She was a wonderful mother cat and we blessed a lot of homes with, Siamese colored, white, and black and white kittens, some short haired and some with long hair. Tip replaced Old Tip, a black and white male also devoted to my husband. He disappeared shortly after we opened the blueberry business. Tony Polino who worked for us thought he had seen him over in West Bonifay so we spent many late evenings driving around that neighborhood calling Tip, but he never returned. It would be impossible to recall all the cats that have blessed our family. Some stand out, however. There was Princess the long haired white cat with a blue eye and a hazel eye that Clyde and Teena, my brother and sister-in-law, gave to Hiram when he was about 10. She saw him through high school and part of college and populated the area with many beautiful kittens. Although she was deaf, she was a good mother and left us with Ali and Angel. Cindy had a black and white mama kitty named Amy who taught her all about the facts of life. Cindy attended many kitten birthings. Once when Cindy had a group of her little girl friends over for a birthday party, Amy climbed up in a chair among the party girls and began delivering kittens. The last nal effort of Amys was the delivery of one puny baby one weekend while Cindy was home from college. I had not known that the cat was expecting. Glen was not as much of a cat lover. He preferred dogs. He only claimed one solid black cat, Devil, who ate a blue tailed lizard and carried a crooked neck nerve damage for the rest of his life. I should never have started this, because, like the Song of Scheherozod, it has no ending. Perhaps Ill take a lesson from my brother, Perry, and do a series. Mine will be The cats Ive known.HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison CATventures and CATastrophes Letter to the EDITORDear Editor, It was recently reported Ms. Debbie Kolmetz of the Holmes County School Board tried, once again, to make available to the taxpayers audio recordings of meetings and the quali cations be made available to board members before voting on personnel moves.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, December 4, 2013Project bringing highspeed Web to rural areasBy VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman firstname.lastname@example.org PANAMA CITY Rural Northwest Florida soon will be home to a broadband network capable of handling 1,000 times the capacity of existing Internet service in the area. Funded by the 2009 federal stimulus package, the $24 million project will bring broadband Internet access to eight underserved counties in the Panhandle, including Calhoun, Gulf, Franklin, Holmes, Jackson, Washington, Liberty and Gadsden counties. Slated for an end-of-the-year completion, the project also will provide coverage for the south-central Florida counties of DeSoto, Hardee, Glades, Hendry, Highlands and Okeechobee and the community of Immokalee. Known as the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance (FRBA), the initiative is a partnership between Opportunity Florida and the Florida Rural Heartland Economic Development Initiative, agencies that serve areas of critical economic concern in the state. Jim Brook, executive director of Opportunity Florida representing the rural Panhandle, said one of the main goals is to provide cost-effective, highspeed Internet directly to community anchor institutions, such as public schools, libraries, local governments and emergency services. It will provide additional capacity, at hopefully affordable rates, Brook said. According to data from the FRBA, only 39 percent of these rural areas have access to broadband service, yet they represent about 20 percent of Floridas land mass. The middle mile broadband network will extend the current Internet backbone to local Internet service providers (ISPs) that serve households and small businesses in these communities. Brook said the back-haul network is required to meet capacity requirements of up to 200 megabytes per second. Traditionally, the end result to the residential consumer would be provided by independent ISPs that traditionally sell at the last mile, Brook said. It provides a scalable, and in many cases, less costly capacity. Brook said the intention is not to compete with current providers, but simply to increase capacity. This was not a system that was put in place to replace existing services, Brook said. Were not only willing, but were obligated to negotiate with existing providers. Once the project is completed, service will be sold at a lowest reasonable cost through a network operator, Brook said, which is in the final stages of negotiation. Within the $4.7 trillion stimulus package, $7.2 billion was designated for broadband infrastructure projects in rural areas across the country. To qualify for grants, companies must show they can provide broadband service to areas that meet any of the following: where 90 percent of households have no broadband access, 50 percent have inadequate broadband coverage at speeds of less than three megabytes per second, or areas where service is available, but less than 40 percent of the population subscribes. This was a system that was primarily developed to provide additional capacity and capacity needed to community anchor institutions, Brook said. Its trying to equalize the country in terms of access to technology, Brook said.

Something else just as common and goes hand in hand with the football at this age level is the peewee cheerleaders. This year it was decided that it was time to give these girls the opportunity to compete. The event was held at the Holmes County High School gym on Nov. 23 and the doors opened at 8 a.m. and the competition starting at 9 a.m. The event took about 3 hours to wrap it up with trophies given to the top 3 teams in each age group. Those involved with the organization of the event consider it a great success. Multiple age groups participated from the following Teams, Alford Eagles, Bethlehem, Blue Devils, Popular Springs, PDL Pirates, and Panama City Glenwood.11-13 PDL Pirates cheerleading squad took rst place.

PHOTOS SPECIAL TO HALIFAX MEDIA GROUPThe 5-7-year-old Blue Devils cheerleaders took top honors in the cheer competition on Nov. 23. 8-10 Panama City/Glenwood Bulldogs were the top cheerleading squad in the 8-10 years old category. PEEWEE CHEERLEADING COMPETITIONSpecial to Halifax Media GroupBONIFAY Saturday, Nov. 23, saw Pee Wee football action starting later than usual with the rst game at 2:30 p.m. It was the championship game for the 5-7 age group, and featured the Holmes County Blue Devils against the Alford Eagles. Both of these teams fought a tough game with this game lasting almost two hours, which is very long for one from this age group. But when it was over the Blue Devils came up short and the Eagles won this years championship game. The next game was to determine the winner for the 8-10 age group, and was the Holmes County Blue Devils against the Panama City/Glenwood Bulldogs. At rst it appeared this might be a really competitive game but then the Blue devils got rolling and it looked like every other game this team has played this year with the exception that this time 6 points did get scored against them. But that is the only points scored against this Blue Devil Team all year. Kalen Evans rushed for 3 touchdowns and threw one touchdown reception to EJ Reddice. The defense stood very strong and only allowed one touchdown. The nal score was 28-6. These Blue Devils won their championship coming off with just about the perfect season. When the 8-10 team were done it was time for the 11-13 teams to play. It was the undefeated Ponce de Leon Pirates against the Glenwwod Bulldogs. This game was a ght till the very end. The Bulldogs got up rst with 8 points and held that lead for a while. But once the Pirates started putting on the points they didnt stop until there were 22 on the board. The game took a sober note when a player from Panama Citys older team was down after being tackled particularly hard. Prayers were answered and good news received that he had only a mild concussion and apparently no spinal injuries. The nal score was 22-8, and a win for PDL. The 11-13 Pirates won their championship and had an overall record this year of 8-0. Pee Wee championships played PEEWEE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPThe 5-7 year old Alford Eagles were champions in their division on Nov. 23.

Blue Devils junior varsity team found themselves ahead in the rst period with a score of 16-9 until the Cottondale Hornets fought back, giving them a tied score of 24-24 at the end of the rst half. The Blue Devils took the lead at the end of the third period with a score of 38-29, but the Hornets quickly swarmed in for a nal sting that won them the game with a score of 50-49 with only 43 seconds left on the clock. The Blue Devils varsity took the lead, ending the rst period with a score of 10-7, but the Hornets were quick to recover and ended the second half with a score of 23-19. The Blue Devils and Hornets battled it out, meeting stride for stride until the Hornets became relentless, ending the third period with a score of 36-29. The Blue Devils fought back and regained some of their lost points, however the Hornets proved to be too much as the game ended with a score of 48-42 in favor of the Hornets.

The senior quarterback accounted for three touchdowns in leading the topranked Tigers over Cottondale 42-0 in the Class 1A state semi nal Friday. Blountstown improved to 13-0 and remained unchallenged in what has been a dominant run. Cottondale fell woefully short in its rst state semi nal appearance and nished 8-5. Cottondale pulled off two upsets to reach this stage for the rst time, but it met the fate of Liberty County and Port St. Joe in previous weeks. Blountstown will play Trenton for the state title in Orlando this Friday. Trenton edged Dixie County 17-14 in Fridays other semi nal. We kept it going all year, Jordan said. All the hard work has put us here. Jordan scored from 2 yards out to give the Tigers a boost 35 seconds into the game. He also scrambled for a 10-yard score late in the rst quarter to give Blountstown a 21-0 lead. Further proof of the Tigers un appable demeanor came two plays after an illegal block penalty. Jordan looked left and lobbed a pass to Shon Peterson, who took it 16 yards for a four-touchdown lead. The bus was rmly warmed for Orlando by then. The Tigers entered the season as regional favorites. They proved the point by outscoring playoff opponents 116-6 with two shutouts. We had the whole town looking to us, said Jordan, whose 28 total yards came on his three scores. Its like a weight off our shoulders. Cottondales offense met the impenetrable Blountstown defense, also headed by Jordan, and nished with 102 yards. Rushing leader Norris Calhoun, the backbone of two previous postseason comebacks, was limited to 32 yards on 17 carries. The Hornets squandered a chance to score in the second quarter on what was their best drive. Trailing 21-0, they moved to the Tigers 9 in 13 plays. A holding penalty, 10-yard loss on a reverse and an interception provided a narrative for the dif cult night. Alex Mayorga added an exclamation point to the tale with a 62-yard run on the next play. Peterson scored four plays later. Cottondales Cinderella run of cially ended 30 minutes later under a running clock. Mayorga led all rushers with 113 yards. Blountstown was balanced again with seven ballcarriers in the rst half. Its been a successful formula and one Blountstown is packing for Orlando. Were gonna do what weve done this season, Jordan said. Run the ball and pound away on defense. Blountstown advanced to its rst state nal since 2004 when it fell to Fort Meade in Class 1A. Trenton played in last years state championship game before losing to Bratt Northview.Class 1A semi nal: Blountstown Tigers roll over Cottondale HornetsBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner email@example.com BLOUNTSTOWN Coaches dont like when you label their teams as favorites. They like to let them do the talking on the eld. In that case, Blountstown should have a lot to say this season. The Tigers moved from District 4-1A to 3-1A and despite playing alongside Holmes County, Chipley, South Walton and Bozeman, are in line to challenge for a playoff spot and title. An experienced group of 10 seniors and 12 juniors will lead Blountstown, which advanced to the second round of the playoffs in 2012. The Tigers will go as far as Hunter Jordan and Javakiel Brigham take them on offense and defense. Thats not to say there arent other potent pieces aside from those seniors, but their production will be key in determining Blountstowns fate. Jordan returns at quarterback after throwing for 838 yards and rushing for 476 as a junior. He also will line up other places on offense and will see more time on defense at linebacker and on the line, his father and Blountstown coach Greg Jordan said. Hes 240-245, a big boy and will do some different things, Coach Jordan said. Hes gonna play some tight end and move around a bit and hell play more defense. I didnt let him hardly play defense (as a junior) just to keep him healthy. But its his last year and I dont want him to have any regrets. Theres little doubt the elder Jordan also wants his son to play a variety of positions to give college scouts more to evaluate. Eyes also will be trained on Brigham, who Jordan expects to again lead the team in tackles (91 last season) and will move from tailback to fullback. Brigham leads all returners with 660 yards rushing and added three touchdowns. He will be used less in motion at fullback as Coach Jordan tries to ration his energy. That will save him a lot, Jordan said. Well try to rest these guys on offense so they can be out there on defense. Hunter Jordan will earn a series or two of rest as junior Dillon Lee works more at quarterback. Coach Jordan is con dent in the replacement and said hes improved. Brother tandems of Corin and Shontayvious Peterson and Alex (245 yards, four TDs) and Justin Mayorga will rotate at wing and running back. Junior Fabion Solomon will back up Brigham at fullback. Theres a little bit of depth in the back eld, at least a quality backup at each of those positions, Jordan said. Its critical to keep those guys out there on the eld. Blountstowns offensive line will be a strength, Jordan said. The group is paced by senior center Jay Williams and junior tackles Tommy Futch and Cole Taylor at 310 and 292 pounds, respectively. Juniors Dewayne Larramore and C.J. Hires complete the line. The Tigers have the luxury of only needing one offensive lineman rotating to play both ways the majority of the time on defense, with Stephen Matthews and Marcus Lewis starting at the down positions. Hunter Jordan and Brigham anchor the second and third tiers of the unit, which also include Shontayvious Peterson at linebacker and Corin Peterson, Lee and junior Tanner Peacock in the secondary. Blountstown had ve shutouts last season, including blanking Holmes County 10-0 in the regional opener. The Tigers gave up fewer than 20 points in three of their ve losses and scored only one touchdown in each. Jordan shied away from calling Blountstown a favorite in the district and region, but hes aware expectations are high. Our biggest thing, like all 1A schools, is the injury bug, he said. You can go from a potentially good season to a bad one quickly. If we keep them healthy we have a shot to make a run at it. We have a pretty good group. Theres con dence going in, we had a good spring and a good summer and were looking forward and see how it goes.2013 Preview: Blountstown poised for run at title HEATHER LEIPHART | The News HeraldShaundre Macroy.HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Shontavious Peterson running for a touchdown.

By ZACK McDONALD747-5071 | @PCNHzack email@example.com COTTONDALE Community members are coming together after ames and smoke ravaged a church in the wake of a holiday-season Sunday service. Fireghters closed a section of U.S. 231 on Nov. 25 to reach adjacent re hydrants after receiving reports of thick, black smoke coming from First Baptist Church of Cottondale about 5:45 a.m. In an early Thanksgiving service the evening before, Pastor Jack Brock preached a sermon thanking God in good times and bad, he said. Little did he know the morning would hold one of those bad times. Brocks assessment of the damage was not optimistic. Much of what he had seen by midday Monday was not salvageable. He was told the building might have to be razed. But at least none of his 130-person congregation had been in the church during the blaze, he said. Were praising the Lord nobody was hurt, Brock said. The church is the body the people and weve got a wonderful fellowship that will rebuild. Were stronger than this, and God is stronger than anything. Brock, the churchs pastor for 27 years, was visibly shaken by the nights events as members of the youth ministry brought out heat-damaged musical instruments, water-logged Bibles and soot-covered, framed portraits in a procession leading to the Youth and Family Ministry Center building next door. Fire crews rst arrived at the blaze just after 5:45 a.m., as smoke billowed from the roof of a classroom and ofce building that separated the chapel and the fellowship hall. Flames were not visible from outside but raged within the center building when reghters poured in, according to Will Arroyo, assistant chief of the Cottondale Fire Department. The State Fire Marshals Ofce had not determined the cause of the re Monday, but Arroyo suspected the re originated in a rst oor utility room, moved up the stairway and eventually spread to the attic which is connected to the chapel. Its pretty safe to say this building is lost inside, Arroyo said. Some of the main structure of the roof is damaged as well, and that might be hard to replace. Fireghters cut a vent in the roof to salvage other areas connected by the attic. However, heat and smoke already had melted or blackened everything within the chapel. Boot imprints cut through black soot in the churchs vestibule, revealing the white tile underneath the tracks of reghters. Soot covered pews, clung to the walls and windows and coated the altar before a melted rendering of the Ten Commandments. CoOMMUnNItTY HelpELPThroughout the morning, local church leaders offered Brock alternate locations to hold services throughout the holiday season. Others offered chairs for parishioners to sit in during sermons and other donations, but Brock was not yet sure what needed to be replaced. Everything is black in there, Brock said. Its in pretty bad shape all the way to the back building. We dont even know where to start right now. Brock also was waiting to learn the extent of damage to the chapel structure itself. The heat could have affected the integrity of the mortar and bricks holding the church together, he said, but denitely not that of the church members resolve. This communitys like that: If one person is down, everybodys down, Brock said. We will denitely be here worshipping Sunday, even if we have to get out here in the back lot as cold as it can be; well be here. MMIcCHaelAEL T.

Wednesday, DECEMBER 4 2013 By MATTHEW BEATON522-5114 | @matthewbeaton firstname.lastname@example.org EBRO Greyhounds run no longer than four years, but then where do they go? Ebro Greyhound Park is doing its part to make sure they nd good homes. More than two years ago, the track partnered with the nonpro t Greyhound Alliance, embracing a large-scale effort to nd its retired runners permanent homes. The track donated one of its kennels the Sunburst Kennel which houses up to 80 dogs waiting for adoption. When racing, the dogs lives oscillate between kennel and track and little else, but their spirits remain bright and their dispositions are absolutely wonderful, said Stacie Strickland, kennel manager. They come out ready to be part of a family. They want somebody to love them. They are so friendly and so outgoing, she said. In fact, theyre bundles of excitable energy and she tries to tone them down a bit so they wont jump all over the kids they meet. Theyre happy-go-lucky and meet few strangers, Strickland said. The local kennel represents a pit stop for most greyhounds headed north or west. Through the Greyhound Alliance, the dogs are shipped all over the country to adoption groups 25 states and 42 different groups. So far more than 2,000 have been cycled through the kennel. Strickland makes sure the dogs have at least four days to recuperate, though some stay a few months. While at Ebro, she said they get exercise four times a day. Theyll lay out in the sun for 30 minutes out there in the pen, and they can cut a doughnut they roll around out there on their backs and play with one another while theyre outside, she said. Early startGreyhounds start racing at 16 months and generally retire at no later than 5 years old. They live between 10 and 14 years old, Strickland said. When they arrive, some may have injuries, so the kennel does vet work, cleans their teeth and spays or neuters them. The goal is to have the dogs ready for adoption, and Greyhound Alliance funds all the vet care. On Tuesday, there were 28 dogs at the kennel, but last week there were 72 it varies based on the next shipment. Other adoption groups around the country put in requests, and Greyhound Alliance pays for the shuttling. This weekend, Ive got dogs that are going up to New England, and theres several little adoptive groups that are getting these dogs, Strickland said. The smaller groups will put them in foster homes and take them to meet-and-greets, and the dogs eventually are placed in a permanent home. For local adoptions she has a very strict process, requiring an appointment, that way ensuring a potential adopter is truly interested. She said she makes them jump through some hoops. I make it a little bit of a chore for people to come out. I dont just pass them out like water, Strickland said, noting only six have been adopted out locally this year. None of the dogs are ever taken to the pound nor are any euthanized. And the intake volume is high. The kennel brings dogs in not just from the North Florida, but from South Florida too. Ebro is housing all of these dogs from the whole state of Florida you know, need be and we can move a lot more dogs through because we have a central place to send them out from, Strickland said.Great successLinda Cliffel helped found the local kennel in 2011, which is part of the Greyhound Alliance. The track had been adopting out dogs on its own and still does for decades, but this represented an opportunity to help a lot more. Though Cliffel lives in Illinois, shes stays up with the local operation. Shes thrilled by its success and heaped praise on the Greyhound Alliance for funding the vet and shipping cost. The only thing we werent prepared for was how successful we were going to be, she said. We have not been able to keep up with demand out of our Sunburst Kennel; its been amazing.

Fo O RGET ME No O T PHo O To O GRap AP Hy Y | Special to ExtraThe Holmes County High School Drama Department will present The Sound of Music this week. HHCHHS to present TThe Sound of Music BirthdayBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT email@example.com Local novelist Nancy Springer is setting her latest book, Drawn into Darkness, in a ctional version of Holmes County. The protagonist is a bright and bold leading lady according to the Romantic Times review, from Pennsylvania who moves into a rental home wreathed in mimosa in Maypop County to get away from the aftermath of divorce, Springer said. She quickly nds herself drawn into a dark drama involving her neighbor, a child abductor. Maypop County and its hub, the little town of Maypop, are my ctitious adaptation of Bonifay and Holmes County. She said there is some exaggeration on the isolation of Maypop. I exaggerate the isolation, which gives my protagonist no way to call for help, and I set the chase/escape scenes, which is most of the book, in a mazy mess of swamp, dirt roads and riverbank, she said. This setting is an adversary deploying many weapons: heat, mosquitoes, Spanish daggers, thorny vines, re ants, snakes, alligators, the works. I love this picturesque area and enjoyed writing about it. She said that the initial inspiration of the book was to fulll her contract. In the previous book, Dark Lie, I chose an Ohio setting because I needed an utterly at, open landscape for the car chase, but I prefer to set my books where I live, Springer said. This area was perfect for Drawn into Darkness because I needed a place out of the mainstream, a thinly populated area. Besides which, compared to the northeast, this region is downright exotic and people from other parts of the country will, I hope, be interested in reading about it. When Nancy Springer, a well-published novelist, moved into the Holmes County area in 2007, she and her husband lived for a year in a hangar at Tri-County Airport, located along Holmes Creek, where she said she has sighted red wolves, a Florida panther, alligators, all kinds of snakes, plus other reptiles, ibis, egrets and envisioned story ideas galore. Already the new book has received a four-star review from Romantic Times: Dark doesnt begin to describe the terror in which Liana and Justin nd themselves, quoted from the Romantic Times review. Springer gets the most from her characters as she puts them in untenable situations then pulls them back from the depths of despair. Liana nds emotional solace in sarcasm and in quotes from the great philosophers as she ghts to survive. Springer has a large variety of ction she is known for, ranging from magical realism, womens ction, mystery, contemporary and young adult and includes award winning novels such as the Rowan Hood series and the Enola Holmes mystery series. Springer was born in Livingston, N.J., and moved with her family to Gettysburg when she was thirteen. She spent the next forty-six years in Pennsylvania, raising her two children, Jonathan, 39, and Nora, 35, making a living by writing over 50 novels, horseback riding, shing, bird watching, and making the occasional reluctant visits to New York City, where she won the Edgar Allan Poe award from the Mystery Writers of America two years in succession. She is currently working on Gator Bait, a young adult novel about a boy living in a swamp-encircled airport.
