However, Judge Patterson and 14th Judicial Circuit Director of GAL Recruiting and Training, Theresa Roberts, say a volunteer shortage can make the voices of Holmes and Washington counties children more dif cult to hear. By law, every child under state supervision must have a guardian ad litem. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are the boots on the ground for the judge, said Roberts. But (one person) cant possibly visit all 70 kids in Washington and Holmes counties. There is a tremendous need for volunteers in Holmes and Washington counties, agreed Judge Patterson. They serve as the childs advocate and conduit for me in court. The parents have representation, the Department of Children and Families have representation, and the children need representation, too. They have that through the Guardian ad Litem volunteers, he added. Theyre the ones who speak up for the child, and its a great pleasure for me to serve with those who give so freely of their time for these children. They can tell you how rewarding this process is. Ideally, there should be one volunteer per household in each county. Amy Grif n, Case Coordinator for Holmes and Washington counties, says the area needs at least ten more volunteers to alleviate the shortage. To volunteer, candidates must take a 30hour class and pass an application process. We require the children be seen at least once a month, but volunteers can go as often as they like, said Grifn. We work around the volunteers schedules, even ensuring they dont have to stay the entire day when subpoenaed for court. The most recent swearing in of volunteers was held at the Guardian ad Litem of ce, located at 1352 South Blvd. in Chipley. To volunteer, contact Grif n at 638-6043.

Baby Shannon is happy, healthy 5-year-old By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Its been nearly ve years since the eyes of the nation were xed on Chipley, watching as the search for 7-month old Shannon Dedrick unfolded. The conclusion was a rare happy ending, with Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock reporting Baby Shannon, as she became known worldwide, had been found. We are the proud papas of a baby girl, Haddock said in a national press conference. There were a lot of grown men crying and shedding tears. Percentage-wise, we usually dont get this kind of ending. But Baby Shannons story had just begun. Now living with a family member in a another state, she celebrated her fth birthday while in Chipley Thursday, surrounded by her newly adoptive mother and the men and women who came to know her as their own.

The friendly, chatty ve-year old enthusiastically played with her birthday gifts, showing no signs of her ordeal. Sheriff Haddock says theres no doubt of Shannons resilience. The raw emotion we felt nd ing Shannon alive ve years ago pales in comparison to the joy we experience watching this child grow and experience life with uninhibited hope, stated Sher iff Haddock. Shannon is happy, thriving and taking on the world with the same feisty nature we saw all those years ago. There is a light in her eyes and that is our denition of success. Like most girls her age, she en joys playing with Barbies, watch ing movies starring the Disney princesses and going to Disney World, a past time her mother in dulges every chance she gets. Protecting Shannons privacy remains a priority for her mother, especially with the national atten tion the case received. Shannon, who has a different name for pub lic use, checks in with the 14th Ju dicial Circuit on an annual basis, making sure she gets a chance to see Sheriff Haddock each time. While Shannons nightmare has seemingly evolved into a fai rytale, the villain in this real life story has been put away for a long time. Judge Allen Register sen tenced Susan Baker to 25 years in prison in 2010, stating her actions were bizarre and cruel. Au thorities discovered Shannon at Bakers home in the closed small cedar chest, shoved underneath a bed. Baker reportedly stashed the baby in the box whenever investigators were near, using baking soda to mask the smell of Shannons dirty diapers. Baker, who is Shannons step aunt, occasionally babysat her, and had been given the child by her mother, who reportedly agreed to give Baker full custody. The motives for her actions are still unclear. We may never know why she did it, Haddock told The News Thursday. The important thing is she was sound safe and is hap py and thriving today.

BOARD from page A1 By TOM McLAUGHLIN 315-4435 | @TomMcLaughlin tmclaughlin@nwfdailynews.com State Rep. Matt Gaetz has introduced legislation to allow people found innocent of criminal charges using the Stand Your Ground defense the ability to request their records in those cases be expunged. The amendment, introduced Wednesday and passed by the House on Thursday as an adjunct to a larger bill, generated controversy be cause some media outlets believe Gaetzs proposal would hinder public access to court records. One Florida lawmaker is seeking to impede the medias ability to scrutinize the law, the Hufngton Post Politics website reported. Gaetz said that under his amendment, a vindicated Stand Your Ground defendant would have to seek certication from a state attorney that says you stood your ground and charges would be improper. Only then, Gaetz said, could the defen dant petition a judge to expunge the ofcial court record. If someone rightfully stands their ground and a state attorney and judge agree they rightfully stood their ground, I dont believe that a person should have a criminal record for the rest of their life, said Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. The Tampa Bay Times investigated Stand Your Ground in 2012 by reviewing 200 cases in which the law had been used as defense in a criminal proceeding. Times Editor and Vice President Neil Brown, quoted on the Hufngton Post web site, said his papers investigation would have been more difcult with Gaetzs legisla tion in place. Closing records and putting controver sial cases that involve violence into the dark is a bad idea, Brown was quoted as saying. Our work was done based on court records as well as the stories of the incidents when they occurred. Gaetz said the Times misrepresented the issue. The amendment I passed gives no Flo ridian any automatic right to expunge an ar rest, he said. Neither would his amendment prevent media scrutiny of the Stand Your Ground law, Gaetz said. Gaetz adds Stand Your Ground to bill

As caring pet owners, we are typically well aware of the various dangers that threaten our furry friends safety. Keeping their vaccinations up to date, making sure they are properly groomed, and providing them with the most nutritious food to ensure good health are just a few things that we tend to with the utmost importance. However, numerous pet-poisonous items commonly found around our households are often overlooked and can be detrimental to our pets lives. A large variety of household plants, foods and chemicals that are considered safe for human use are toxic to our pets. Some of the most dangerous plants to keep out of your pets reach include any owers in the lily family, including sago palms, oleander, foxglove, castor bean and poinsettias. Though these are bad for both cats and dogs, the toxic dose often differs between species. Some of the most common foods that can be toxic to dogs are grapes and raisins, or any food items containing the arti cial sweetener xylitol, which can be contained in chewing gum as well as many lowcalorie foods as a sugar substitute, said Dr. Medora Pashmakova, a clinical associate professor in emergency and critical care at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Chocolate is also a well-known toxin to pets; however, its particularly the dark chocolate and baking chocolate varieties that pose the real threats due to their higher cocoa and theobromine content. Although cats are more discerning when it comes to eating household items, grooming themselves after coming into contact with any toxic chemicals can be very dangerous. Owners of cats should be vigilant about any chemical spills or even the use of countertop cleaning products, which can be caustic when cats groom themselves after being in contact, Pashmakova said. In addition, even small volumes of ingested antifreeze or coolant uid can be lethal to cats and requires seeing a veterinarian right away, without waiting for clinical signs to appear. A good rule of thumb is that if something is toxic to humans, it is likely toxic to our pets as well. At the same time, medications considered safe in people (such as over the counter pain medications or cold/ u medications) are NOT safe for dogs and cats, Pashmakova said. Never give your dog or cat human medications without speaking to a veterinarian rst. Dr. Pashmakova said keeping your pets safe is similar to keeping babies safe. This sometimes includes pet-proo ng your house and anticipating what cats, dogs, ferrets and other small animals can get into. Keeping cupboards secured, bathrooms closed, bathroom garbage stowed away, medications locked up and any chemical spills cleaned up quickly and thoroughly are just some basics that all pet owners should keep in mind, Pashmakova said. Having a good plan of action in the event of ingestion is also key. This can be something as simple as calling your veterinarian during daytime hours or calling an emergency hospital after-hours. If your pet ingests any of these items, it is best to play it safe and contact your veterinarian or the Animal Poison Control Center; they can help you determine if your pet needs to be seen by a doctor and if they consumed a toxic dose. The Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital ER is always available to advise on toxic ingestions, and the Animal Poison Control Hotline af liated with the University of Illinois veterinary school is a 24/7 resource with boardcerti ed toxicologists to advise owners or veterinarians on how to deal with toxicities. There is no harm in being extra cautious when dealing with possible toxicities around the house. Be sure to keep these particular items out of your pets reach at all times, and to call your veterinarian or poison control center immediately if they do come into contact with them. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to the safety of your furry family member.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com A Page 4 Section My rst month as Editor of the Washington County News and Holmes County Times Advertiser has been met with overwhelming community response, and I am grateful. This is no surprise, though, as thats the kind of treatment I remember our small communities giving when I was growing up here in the late 80s and early 90s. There are few who have the pleasure of waking up and being able to unabashedly say, Yippee! I get to go to work today! I am one of those lucky few. My love for the written word developed at a young age, having a long history of pets and vehicles named after favorite authors, including a cat named Ernest Hemingway. This af nity for writing seems a perfect marriage with the genuine love I have for this community. This new role will give me an even better opportunity to meet and serve more of you, my extended family. Here in the infancy of my experience as an editor, there is a lot to learn, but I also have high hopes for The News and The Times-Advertiser this year. Our goal is to serve the community objectively and responsibly while giving our readers the best possible newspaper with each issue. These are your communities newspapers. They were here long before most of us and feature news about you and people you know. The paper serves as a forum for your opinions and chronicles the milestones of your family, from those who came before you, to your children and grandchildren today. It is for this reason, I hope to be a part of those milestones and look forward to featuring them in your local paper. I used to simplistically believe working for a newspaper was comprised of just two skills: reporting and writing. Over time, I have learned rst, that I do not work for these newspapers; I am simply employed by them. I actually work for my community. Second, everything else will come as long as I remember that rst lesson. I once heard that to write was to become conscious. When youre conscious and writing from a place of insight, simplicity, and real caring about truth, you have the ability to throw the lights on for your reader. I will certainly make accuracy a rst priority and accept the risk of possibly being disliked on occasion for reporting with facts. Editors have a moral obligation to do nothing less. Your help and advice in doing so will always be appreciated. The editors door is always open. Thankful for Southern hospitality As we know, the three basic needs of man are water, food, and shelter. Through -out history, the availability of water has in uenced the development of civilization. Today, we turn on the tap and water comes forth and we take its availability for granted. For those of my generation who grew up in the country before rural electri cation, a central hand-dug well was the source of all water needs about the home, and it was drawn up with a bucket and rope or chain. Songs such as The Old Oaken Bucket romanticized the drawing of water from an open well, but the daily chore of drawing water was not a dear to my childhood memory. A Zinc bucket, not an oaken bucket, was used for drawing up the water, but for other uses as well. A water bucket sat on a shelf on the back porch where eld hands washed up in enamel wash pans before meals, and where we washed our faces upon arising in the morning and our feet before retiring at night. A zinc or enamel bucket in the kitchen also held the water used for lling the ever-present kettle which sat on the wood stove and supplied water for cooking and dish washing. Many wood stoves also had a reservoir which had to be lled from the bucket. Whenever these were empty, a trip to the well was necessary. Livestock and chickens needed a source of fresh water and that also came from the well and was drawn up by the zinc bucket and toted or hauled to the chicken yard or barn yard. Since we had open range, the cattle only came in the barn for the night, so they found their water in a near-by creek. The hogs also found their source of water. However, the mule stalls had to have a constant supply of water. We also gathered and tied into bunches many bundles of turnips and other greens for sale. In order to keep them fresh and to remove some of the soil which clings to the roots, we dipped them into zinc tubs of water drawn from the well with the zinc bucket. Hog-killing days called for a lot of water from the well as the vat for scalding was lled from water drawn up from the well. Sometimes on those days, a drum full of water might be transported to the vat on the mule-drawn ground slide. Gallons of water for washing the chitterlings used for sausage casings also had to be drawn from the well. It was usually my chore to use a dipper and pour a stream of water through the smelly things as Aunt Willie Mae Wells or Verdie Hewett or whoever was doing the scraping or ridding as it was called held them open. Wash days required a lot of waterdrawing. Many squeaks of the rope and pulley were required to ll the black iron wash pot and three zinc tubs for the weekly wash day. Needless to say, clothes were worn for several days and when you hear a joke about a weekly bath, it is no joke. After the clothes were washed, often the oors were scrubbed with the lye water used to boil the dirty clothes. Then the rinse water would be poured on the oors to rinse them. Also about once a year, the kitchen chairs would get a bath in the lye water and rinsed in the tubs and left in the sun to dry. No water was wasted. Clean rinse water might be left in the sun to get warm for a bath that evening. Instead of an open well, a few people had a pitcher pump and later, a bigger pump with a long handle that functioned the same way by means of a vacuum which drew up the water. In fact, our grandma had a pitcher pump with a sink installed in her kitchen by her enterprising son, Uncle Josh Wells. She was the rst person I knew to have running water in her kitchen. They still had the well outside for all other uses. Most rural churches had no well and I have memories of going to allday singings at Bethel in Washington County and St. Johns and New Effort in Holmes County. At Bethel, wed walk down the hill to the Tom Collins home at the Brackin homestead where we drank from a common dipper the cool water drawn up with a zinc bucket. I dont suppose it ever occurred to us the possibility of spreading disease with the use of the common dipper. At New Effort, we walked to the Elliot home. At St Johns, it was the Leavins home, I believe. St Johns had a spring near-by where some of the men of the church had enclosed a small pool which they used for baptisms, but I dont recall drinking from the spring. Some of the boys would slip away and go swimming there. At Brackin School, we didnt draw water, as the spring had been channeled via a curbing and then through a pipe under a concrete slab. We could squat and drink directly from the pipe or we could drink from the common dipper and bucket carried to the classroom. We are in the process of opening the well that supplied the Tison family with water for the purpose of allowing visiting children to experience the way our generation did laundry before rural families had electricity. Drawing water, a daily chore to us, offers todays children an opportunity to experience a link with the past and develop a greater appreciation for the ready source of water which we should never take for granted.

This man will change Coras life in wholly unexpected ways. The women nally arrive at Argonne to visit the graves where their sons are buried. Shocking events happen. A death, a scandal and a secret revealed will guarantee Coras life and those of her traveling companions will become intertwined. Delicious refreshments were served by Tison at the conclusion of the meeting. Bonifay Book Club reviews A Star for Mrs. Blake

to mussels to barnacles if youve ever tried to scrape barnacles off a boat bottom, you have to truly admire the power in the sheepshead jaws, because they nip them off like carrots. Catching sheepshead is a learned art. It looks as if it should be very simple; toss a piece of fresh-cut shrimp in front of them and they eat it, most of the time. But that parsimonious mouth is very stingy when it comes to ingesting hooks; often they nip off the bait and leave Mr. Mustad hanging naked. First, its essential to use a hook small enough to fit the relatively small mouth of the fish; size 1 or 1/0 is the ticket to admission. Actually smaller hooks work even better, but the teeth are so strong that the fish can occasionally bite right through the light wire of smaller hardware. (They also can bite through mono or fluoro leader and line, and theres not much you can do about that if the hook goes in far enough for them to chomp on either. Adding wire leader is not an option they will rarely eat even the tastiest bait suspended on wire.) You usually need a sinker of some sort because heads are most often found in holes, channels and cuts, usually around rocks, concrete or other hard structure where shellfish can fix and grow and where small crabs live. Boat docks and bridge pilings also attract them. One good way to rig is to put the hook on a dropper made of 20-pound test hard mono or fluoro (both have more resistance to teeth than standard mono) and then hang the sinker on the bitter end of the line about 18 inches below. With this rig, you can immediately feel it when a sh starts nibbling on the bait; if the sinker is above the hook, as in a standard rig, the sh has to bite hard enough to move the sinker before you feel anythingand by that time the bait might be long gone. Using braided line helps a lot the nostretch ber transmits the feel of the nibbles much better than mono. Another good rig is a 1/8 to ounce jig head with an oversized hook, size 1/0 or so, on which a piece of fresh cut shrimp, about thumbnail-sized, is impaled. With the jig, you feel the bite immediately, and it casts more easily than a separate sinker/ dropper rig. While fresh shrimp is by far the easiest bait to come by, sheepshead also readily take an assortment of other natural baits; oysters, ddler crabs, sand eas and tubeworms are all high on the list of sheepshead a cionados. Whatever the bait, the trick is to hold light tension on the line when you feel that rst bump. If you can sense weight there as you take up the slack, go ahead and set the hook; you miss some, but you hook most once you develop the touch. You often can visually locate sheepshead in clear water; they tend to hang near the surface, and you can spot them as they turn and ash. But even if you dont see them, you often can stir sh up by chumming around crusty pilings and riprap; use a hoe or spud to scrape the barnacles. As this stuff showers down, sheepshead will smell it and move in from considerable distance. Larger heads congregate on rockpiles and ledges in 8 to 30 feet of water to spawn from February into early April: many nearshore reefs also hold them at this time. There also is a limited ats shery for small sheepshead in Panhandle bays in early spring, anywhere you might see red sh tailing. On the lowest tides, its not uncommon to see them up in the shallows waving that gray tail as they root out an oyster or a shrimp. However, a sheepshead seen in this way is not a sheepshead caught; they are paranoid on a level that makes bone sh seem like carp. If you land an arti cial lure anywhere in the same zip code, they will instantly vaporize. The only tactic that has ever worked for me is to cast a whole shrimp, unweighted, on a light spinning rig uptide from the sh and let it sit there. Sometimes the sh smells it, swims up and eats it when that happens, you have achieved one of the pinnacles of ats angling. They put up a nice battle in the shallows, too, with some fast, powerful runs. Oddly, these same sh might travel to nearby potholes when the spirit moves them, and then they become dumb as cat sh; most of the large winter catches are made by nding these backcountry holes. They also settle into rocky holes in many coastal rivers during cold weather. Sheepshead are in the same gang as the pin sh, which explains something about their physiography they are armed with some of the sharpest, longest spines in shdom sort of the uberpin sh, if you will and the armament sprouts in all directions, from the back, the chest and the nether regions; there is hardly a safe way to pick up a sheepshead except with tongs. But pick up a sheepshead you must, because thats what it takes to extract those wonderful white llets. As you might expect of a creature that eats only shell sh, the taste of sheepshead completely belies the barnyardian name; it is among the nest of all shes, right up there with hog snapper another critter with a nasty name and a wonderful taste, come to think of it. After years of being wounded by heads, I nally came to the conclusion that the only reasonable way to deal with them was to disarm them. These days, when I catch one it goes on ice immediately to put it to sleep, as we like to tell the grandkids, and then out come the poultry shears. I systematically nip off every pointed spine on every sh if you leave even one, I can assure you it will nd a way to bury itself in your nger. Once the spines are gone, sheepshead llet pretty much like other sh, but they do have a thicker hide and tougher scales run the point of a sharp llet knife up each side of the backbone to make a channel before you start the lleting cut and it will go more smoothly. You have to cut around the base of the dorsal spines, too; they extend well into the meat. Now strip off the skin and youre ready to cook. On small sh, trim off the rib cage because it doesnt have much meat; on larger ones, you might nd it better to leave the rib meat in place and deal with the bones once the sh is cooked. Sheepshead are delicious any way you care to cook them. One of my shing friends likes to cube the meat, boil it brie y in crab boil spices like Zatarans, and then dip in melted butter and lemon juice tasty as lobster, and more tender. Of course, you cant beat breading and deep frying, and simply putting them in a sh basket, adding a little nonstick oil and plopping them on a hot grill is also a great way to go.

To be sure, they are abundant panfish of the saltwater kind, but catching them can at times be a challenge. However, if youre interested in eating bottom fish and who isnt they are becoming one of the few games in town, so tightly are the feds limiting our take of grouper and most snappers. And theyre one of the more active species in Panhandle waters from now through March. The limit on sheepshead still allows you to take them home by the flock; the rule is 15 daily over 12 inches, which means if you have two or three anglers aboard and happen into a swarm of hungry heads, you can actually fill the cooler, a rarity with any species these days. You wont be taking home any 20-pounders, as you might with gags or red snapper, to be sure, (the all-tackle sheepshead record is 21 pounds, 4 ounces, the Florida record 15-2) but a stack of 1to 3-pounders is likely, and if you fish offshore rockpiles during the February/ April spawn, you might add some fish of 5 to 8 pounds to the box. (There are no federal regulations on the species, but you must comply with state limits when you return to shore.) Sheepshead are not wimps; theyre remarkably powerful critters for their size. A five-pounder caught on the flats is a match for a redfish of similar size though its rare to catch em on the flats because they are so much more wary than redfish (see below). And when you hook up with a heavy one around a piling, hes just as quick to wrap up and cut you off as any snook.

Whatever the bait, the trick is to hold light tension on the line when you feel that PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Outdoors SUNDAY February 2, 2014 I hope everyone is taking advantage of this cold weather instead of complaining about it. This is exactly what the doctor ordered for all you speckled trout fishermen. Usually the Hot Water Canal is the place to go when winter comes, but this year they dont seem to be pulling hot water, at least not when Im up there. The Lancing Smith Steam Plant pulls in cold bay water from the east side and after heating it up usually discharges hot (72 degree) water on the outflow side. Im told they use the hot steam to turn the turbines to make electricity, which in turn is how the Hot Water Canal gets its name. Usually when you see steam or smoke coming from the stacks at the plant you can depend on hot water coming out on the discharge side. The last time I was up there I could see smoke coming from the stacks, but the water was not any warmer than the bay water. During our last freeze a few weeks ago mullet were seen stunned on the bottom due to the water temperature being so cold. I have been up there in freezing weather and watched fly fishermen wading in the shallow parts of the canal just like it was the middle of June. Maybe when I got there they had stopped discharging warm water, but the trout didnt seem to notice they were packed in there from end to end. It is possible at times to catch trout on just about anything you throw at them. When the water is clear it is possible to sight fish trout using grubs or live shrimp. The average depth is about three feet of water. But if you want to catch really big trout you just about have to have finger mullet and this is where the rub comes in. I know of nowhere a fisherman can buy finger mullet because they are so hard to keep alive. That means you have to cast net your own. In the summer, finger mullet are a dime a dozen in shallow water. Not so in freezing weather. If you can figure out where to catch finger mullet fish them with just a hook and no lead. You will catch the trout of a lifetime, but remember you can only take home a picture. The fish has to go back to the water unharmed.

But that parsimonious mouth is very stingy when it comes to ingesting hooks; often they nip off the bait and leave Mr. Mustad hanging naked. First, its essential to use a hook small enough to fit the relatively small mouth of the fish; size 1 or 1/0 is the ticket to admission. Actually smaller hooks work even better, but the teeth are so strong that the fish can occasionally bite right through the light wire of smaller hardware. (They also can bite through mono or fluoro leader and line, and theres not much you can do about that if the hook goes in far enough for them to chomp on either. Adding wire leader is not an option they will rarely eat even the tastiest bait suspended on wire.) You usually need a sinker of some sort because heads are most often found in holes, channels and cuts, usually around rocks, concrete or other hard structure where shellfish can fix and grow and where small crabs live. Boat docks and bridge pilings also attract them. One good way to rig is to put the hook on a dropper made of 20-pound test hard mono or fluoro (both have more resistance to teeth than standard mono) and then hang the sinker on the bitter end of the line about 18 inches below. With this rig, you can immediately feel it when a fish starts nibbling on the bait; if the sinker is above the hook, as in a standard rig, the fish has to bite hard enough to move the sinker before you feel anythingand by that time the bait might be long gone. Using braided line helps a lot the no-stretch fiber transmits the feel of the nibbles much better than mono. Another good rig is a 1/8 to ounce jig head with an oversized hook, size 1/0 or so, on which a piece of fresh cut shrimp, about thumbnail-sized, is impaled. With the jig, you feel the bite immediately, and it casts more easily than a separate sinker/dropper rig. While fresh shrimp is by far the easiest bait to come by, sheepshead also readily take an assortment of other natural baits; oysters, fiddler crabs, sand fleas and tubeworms are all high on the list of sheepshead aficionados. Whatever the bait, the trick is to hold light tension on the line when you feel that PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD Outdoors SUNDAY February 2, 2014 I hope everyone is taking advantage of this cold weather instead of complaining about it. This is exactly what the doctor ordered for all you speckled trout fishermen. Usually the Hot Water Canal is the place to go when winter comes, but this year they dont seem to be pulling hot water, at least not when Im up there. The Lancing Smith Steam Plant pulls in cold bay water from the east side and after heating it up usually discharges hot (72 degree) water on the outflow side. Im told they use the hot steam to turn the turbines to make electricity, which in turn is how the Hot Water Canal gets its name. Usually when you see steam or smoke coming from the stacks at the plant you can depend on hot water coming out on the discharge side. The last time I was up there I could see smoke coming from the stacks, but the water was not any warmer than the bay water. During our last freeze a few weeks ago mullet were seen stunned on the bottom due to the water temperature being so cold. I have been up there in freezing weather and watched fly fishermen wading in the shallow parts of the canal just like it was the middle of June. Maybe when I got there they had stopped discharging warm water, but the trout didnt seem to notice they were packed in there from end to end. It is possible at times to catch trout on just about anything you throw at them. When the water is clear it is possible to sight fish trout using grubs or live shrimp. The average depth is about three feet of water. But if you want to catch really big trout you just about have to have finger mullet and this is where the rub comes in. I know of nowhere a fisherman can buy finger mullet because they are so hard to keep alive. That means you have to cast net your own. In the summer, finger mullet are a dime a dozen in shallow water. Not so in freezing weather. If you can figure out where to catch finger mullet fish them with just a hook and no lead. You will catch the trout of a lifetime, but remember you can only take home a picture. The fish has to go back to the water unharmed.

New health plans bring hefty fees for certain drugs MIAMI (AP) Breast cancer survi vor Ginny Mason was thrilled to get health coverage under the Affordable Care Act despite her pre-existing con dition. But when she realized her ar thritis medication fell under a partic ularly costly tier of her plan, she was forced to switch to another brand. Under the plan, her Celebrex would have cost $648 a month until she met her $1,500 prescription de ductible, followed by an $85 monthly co-pay. Mason is one of the many Ameri cans with serious illnesses includ ing cancer, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis who are in deed nding relatively low monthly premiums under President Barack Obamas law. But some have been shocked at how much their prescrip tions are costing as insurers are sort ing drug prices into a complex tier system and in some cases charging co-insurance rates as high as 50 per cent. That can leave patients on the hook for thousands. I was grateful for the Affordable Care Act because it didnt turn me down but ... its like wheres the af fordable on this one? said Mason, a 61-year-old from West Lafayette, Ind., who currently pays an $800 monthly premium. Before the federal health law took effect, Mason paid slightly more for her monthly premium on a plan that didnt cover her arthritis or pain medi cations and some routine doctors visits. Avalere Health, a market research and consulting rm, estimates some consumers will pay half the cost of their specialty drugs under health overhaul-related plans, while custom ers in the private market typically pay no more than a third. Patient ad vocates worry that insurers may be trying to discourage chronically ill pa tients from enrolling by putting high cost drugs onto specialty tiers. Brian Rosen, senior vice president for public policy for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, said the group studied premiums and benets for patients with blood cancer in seven states, including Florida, California, Texas and New York. They found 50 percent co-insurance rates for spe cialty drugs on several plans in Flor ida and Texas, while the highest coinsurance rates on California plans were 30 percent. New York co-pays were typically $70. Under the law, insurers cant charge an individual more than $6,350 in out-of pocket costs a year and no more than $12,700 for a family policy. But patient advocates warn those with serious illnesses could pay their entire out-of-pocket cap before their insurance kicks in any money. The challenge is for the sickest patients, the ones that need access to these specialty drugs, the costs are going to come in most cases from that out-of-pocket cap ... they are likely to hit that $6,350 ceiling and in some cas es quickly, Rosen said. Specialty drugs Only 1 percent of prescriptions written in 2012 were for special ty drugs, but they accounted for 25 percent of the total cost of prescrip tion drugs, according to a study by Americas Health Insurance Plans. Insurers generally can choose to put whichever drugs they want into the specialty tier of a plan. Generic drugs for blood pressure or choles terol typically fall into categories that require patients to pay less than $20 out of pocket. But patients can end up spending signicantly more when they pay for a percentage of a spe cialty drugs cost. Two of the most frequently prescribed specialty drugs in recent years include the cancer drug Avastin, with an $11,000 average annual price per patient, and the hy pertension drug Letairis, which costs $32,000 per year, according to health insurers. Even before the Affordable Care Act took effect, insurers had increas ingly begun requiring patients to pay a percentage of the drug costs instead of a at co-pay, but experts say patients often spend more for their prescrip tions in plans offered under the health law because of the co-insurance. Theres a signicant percentage of plans who are using co-insurance of 50 percent or higher, said Caroline Pearson, who tracks the health care overhaul for Avalere Health, which studied plans in 19 states. It is gener ally a lot higher than what we see in private insurance. Once they pay more than several hundred dollars, Pearson says patients start to abandon their medications. William Hurd signed up for a Cigna plan with a $616 monthly premium that covered him and his wife in Decem ber. The government kicks in about $900 a month in tax credits. Hurd, a 61-year-old diabetic who works a con struction job in Orlando, was eager to ll his insulin prescription along with two other medications. But he was shocked when the pharmacy said he would have to pay $1,400 out of pocket for a 90-day supply. He was under the impression that prescriptions were part of the plan and thought he only had a $10 co-pay for prescriptions. I already had the plan. I was in, and I was ready to cancel it. If Ive got to pay 1,000 more dollars for drugs ... then its not worth it, he said. Fortunately, Hurd called his doctor and was able to switch to a cheaper brand of insulin and ended up paying only $112. This was an extremely expensive misunderstanding, said his insur ance broker Leslie Glogau.

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Holmes and Washington counties are gearing for growth in 2014, with both counties showing signs of progress in the areas of the economy, health care and technology. Key indicators show both counties are also projected to experience growth from 2013 through increased median household incomes, lower unemployment rates, and larger populations. WASHINGTON COUNTY The Washington County Chamber of Commerce is focusing on economic growth by hosting a series of Economic Development Symposiums in Chipley. Such symposiums have provided insight into how economic development works, while identifying Washington Countys needs, strengths and weaknesses. Members of both the business community and private sectors came together to brainstorm ways to jumpstart the local economy. Assets identi ed included the countys proximity to transportation corridors such as I-10 and State Road 77 and U.S. 90, availability of large tracts of quality land, quality hospital and education systems, natural resources and existing infrastructure. Ideas to enhance those existing assets included creating and keeping a current inventory of available land tracts and their available resources, such as water and sewer access. Also discussed was the importance of pre-developing the areas most desirable to develop by initiating new infrastructure. Expanding that infrastructure got a hand up from a recent grant from the Northwest Florida Water Management District. The city of Chipley has begun preliminary plans to use those funds to expand existing infrastructure south of Interstate 10. State Road 77 will also see expansion, with a widening project underway from one mile north of Wausau to just south of Clayton Road (County Road 276). Two new schools are on the horizon for Washington County as well, with construction plans underway for a new Kate M. Smith Elementary campus in Chipley and a new Vernon Elementary School in Vernon. Meanwhile, plans by the Ebro Dog Track to seek adding slot machines as added revenue are stalled while proposed Legislation is batted back and forth by the House with the idea of setting up a new gambling commission to provide more oversight and regulation of all aspects of gambling in the state. The legislation as it stands would exempt the state lottery and mandate a constitutional amendment requiring a statewide referendum be held on any expansion of gambling. HOLMES COUNTY Holmes County is hoping to see economic growth, along with new industry under the leadership of newly hired Holmes County Development Commission Executive Director Raymon Thomas. Of cials are eyeing the possibility of a new industrial park in the county and report that at least one manufacturing industry may be interested in the area. Holmes County is continuing with their Strategic Plan for Economic Development and hope to build upon its strengths, such as natural resources, a lower tax base and abundance of available property. The Holmes County Development Commission spearheads the effort to pursue that Holmes County promotes the growth of an Enterprise Zone which ensures that local businesses and residents are zone certi ed. The 20 square mile zone is divided into three non-contiguous areas covering Bonifay, Ponce de Leon and Esto. The Development Commission acts as the of cial representative of Enterprise Zone activity to ensure that businesses and residents located in the zone will be able to receive numerous incentives. The TDC also encourages local entrepreneurship for local business start-ups and works with the Small Business Development Center of UWF to offer its Steps to Starting a New Business seminars on-site in Holmes County as part of its strategic plan. Holmes County will also experience infrastructure expansion to help encourage other new industry, with recent grant monies also helping lay the ground work for widening of State Road 79 and NWFWD grants to help the City of Bonifay, Town of Esto and Town of Noma improve water and sewer systems. Both counties continue to participate in the RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project, a multi-county consortium which seeks to bring tourism into the rural counties of Florida. The project is a public/private partnership that encourages sustainable economic development through the preservation and promotion of the natural, cultural and historical resources of the Apalachicola and Choctawhatchee River basins. Holmes Creek provides one of the most diverse habitats and richest variety of sh and mollusks in the Choctawhatchee River basin, according to the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts website. Holmes, Washington counties showing signs of expansion SPECIAL TO HORIZONS State Road 79 is among roads that will soon be expanded under a $10 million FDOT project.

The 1,883-acre parcel purchased in 2006 for about $3,700 an acre and currently on the tax rolls at $1,000 an acre is in the southeastern corner of the county where Jackson, Bay and Washington counties join along County Line Road. Backers of the project hope the project falls back into step, but Rhythm is at an apparent standstill as developers await answers regarding when development can begin. There are numerous preconditions to commencing development throughout the Development Order, said Linda Loomis Shelley of Attorneys Fowler White Boggs ofce in a March 2014 letter regarding the property. Shelley went on to list several environmental requirements such as: All pre-development base line conditions must be documented Fish sampling must be implemented prior to submittal of the Master Stormwater Management Permit A Master Stormwater Permit from the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD) must be obtained The Habitat Management Plan must be updated Conservation easements must be conveyed for Buckhorn Creek, Goshum Creek, and Long Brand Creek Wildlife Corridor A gopher tortoise relocation permit must be obtained from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) Though the property owners have indicated work on many of these activates is under way, none of the listed preconditions have been completed. (Based on this information) it is not possible for development to commence for a minimum of 18-24 months, Shelley said. Even then, it is anticipated that required road work will need to be completed or substantially underway before actual work on the site can begin and needless to say, prep work for roadway construction is substantial and time consuming. Chief among the issues stalling out the project are the FFWCCs guidelines for gopher tortoise permitting. Though commissioners were of the understanding no permitting was required because of preconstruction activity falling under the category of silviculture, the logging company tasked with clearing the land reports it was told otherwise. Gopher Tortoise Guidelines provide that silviculture activities do not require a gopher tortoise permit Because a contrary position has been represented to the loggers that a gopher tortoise permit is require at this time, the logger has pulled its equipment off the site and will not return to complete work until the (FFWCC) veries in writing that a permit is not required, Shelley said. This is not the rst struggle the development has experienced, however. Since Feb. 29, 2008, Rhythm has worked for approval of its DRI, or Development of Regional Impact, which includes requirements for specic and detailed plans on everything from how infrastructure will be supported to the impact on the environment. It gained that approval in February 2012. The DRI goes handin-hand with the needed development order and Planned Urban Development, with all three needing approval for the project to move forward. And there were three impediments to those plans: concerns whether Rhythms wells will draw down nearby private wells, neighborhood opposition and a less-than-willing neighbor in Bay County, which has the road with the most direct access to the property. WATER The water issues, Henderson said, should be settled given the reviews by the West Florida Regional Planning Council (WFRPC), the Florida Department of Transportation, the affected Water Management District, the local School District and a number of other agencies. The Rhythm DRI was submitted to the WFRPC in Pensacola on Feb. 29, 2008, and received WFRPC approval on Oct. 27, 2011, after all agency comments had been satised with three review cycles at each level. Washington County Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz said there was also a change that had to be made to the countys comprehensive plan to identify Rhythm as a Planned Unit Development (PUD). A PUD is essentially another method of dening how a piece of property might be used and includes specic criteria. In Rhythms case, DeRuntz said, the PUD was rened to include a 100-foot buffering zone to adjoining land and protected land, except for when joined to agriculture/silviculture, which then would be 50 feet. And it includes language that concerns water sheds, identifying spring sheds, both primary and secondary. Since water is such a precious resource, this includes the protection of water sheds, DeRuntz said. Weve got to protect our water. There are some areas with more sensitive recharge areas, and weve got to be especially careful in this area because most of the county is on wells. ROADS Henderson said he believes Bay County was reluctant to grant access via County Line Road, which runs directly to the project from U.S. 231, because of ongoing friction between Bay and Washington counties over test wells Bay has drilled to the west. He said Rhythm offered to pave County Line Road up to and beyond county and state standards but was refused. Bay County ofcials said the reluctance had more to do with feasibility than anything: there is not enough right-of-way to pave County Line Road to county and state standards, and the county would have to go to court to take that needed right-of-way from private property owners, which wasnt a viable alternative. So with the clock ticking, Rhythm turned back to Washington County with a plan to spend millions of dollars paving roads between the development and Chipley, mostly with federal grant money and at no cost to the county. The project supporters said the worst case scenario is the county gets millions of dollar in road improvements, even if Rhythm doesnt sell the rst unit. You never know when somethings going to help or hurt you, but in this case it could do nothing but help us, said Washington County Engineer Cliff Knauer during a previous BOCC meeting. Before, this project didnt address Washington County roads, and it wouldnt have been a benet to us, but now it is. We rst addressed needing to do something about Buckhorn Boulevard in 1999, as well as that huge section in Quail Hallow. Knauer said it wouldnt be just for the project that paving those roads would benet. Its unbelievable how many people live down in that area and could benet from these roads being paved, not to mention those are school bus routes, and itd save the district on maintenance needing to be done to those buses that have to go down those roads every day, Knauer said. With almost every aspect of this project, theyve gone above and beyond what is required. NEIGHBORS With water and roads addressed, J. Scott Henderson, of Henderson Planning Group LLC, representing Rhythm said, We feel that we have answered all the questions, done everything weve been asked to do and then some. Henderson conceded there is little left to do to appease those who live near the project. Trying to get the neighborhood comfortable has been a challenge, he said. Thats probably the biggest issue we have right now, and the neighborhood isnt going to be satised. But DeRuntz said he knew the concerns of the residents and in many of the aspects shared them, given the history of the area. Everyone is concerned with the economy, and everyone is living with the memory of Sunny Hills, DeRuntz said. That project was done before the land use requirements. It would have never own with the new standards. And key to this development, DeRuntz said, is all the conditions set forth in the agreements stay with the land and the development, not the property owner. Whatever is approved now has to be honored no matter who ends up developing the property. If something happens and the property changes hands, the new owner would have to follow the same guidelines to the letter or else they will have to start all over again, which is exactly where the developers were in 2008, DeRuntz said. DEVELOPMENT ORDER The most pressing matter at the moment is the Development Order. Without it, nothing happens. It represents an agreement between the developer and the county about how things are going to be developed, said DeRuntz. Thats why there are phases the development must work within so that they have to meet the requirements on their part in order to continue their development. DeRuntz said this is the biggest development to come to Washington County. With something this big weve got to make sure they t into our comprehensive plan, DeRuntz said. The developer has met all the conditions. And one of the big conditions is the road paving will be completed before units are built for Phase I, preparing the area for heavier trafc. This includes creating a new road called New Buckhorn Boulevard, and paving Buckhorn Boulevard to Quail Hallow Boulevard, Quail Hallow Boulevard to Orange Hill Road and Orange Hill Road until it meets the latest in Florida Department of Transportation standards. Those parts of the road already paved will be repaved so the entire stretch meets the latest in FDOT standards. Funding for this project is through an already approved Tiger III grant from the Department of Transportation. The developers have agreed to make up any shortfalls between that money and the actual cost of paving. Special to Horizons BONIFAY The Washington County Tourism Development Council, Holmes County Development Commission and the Holmes County Tourism Development Council continue to support the Riverway South Project here. The RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project is a multi-county consortium to bring tourism into the rural counties of Florida, said Jim Brook, director of the Holmes County Economic Development Commission and a board member of the Riverway South project. In addition to spending $10,000 collectively in support of the rural tourism project as a part of a matching grant program to raise funds for tourism efforts, local tourism councils said they support the projects ultimate goal of promoting eco-tourism, specically. According to the RiverWay South website, the project is a public/ private partnership that encourages sustainable economic development through the preservation and promotion of the natural, cultural and historical resources of the Apalachicola and Choctawhatchee River basins. Much of rural tourism is what I would call eco-tourism, Brook said. Eco-tourism has a lot to offer Holmes and Washington counties by the way of protecting our rivers and streams. The project also includes Jackson County and was based on a similar program in Alabama, designed to bring visitors to the rural areas of the state to enjoy natural beauty and wildlife. Agri-tourism is also part of the draw for rural areas, Brook said, with visitors coming to visit farms from the cities to experience what agriculture is like rsthand. I would also consider farmers markets to be part of agritourism, he said. Agritourism has not been as successful as eco-tourism in bringing in visitors, Brook noted. Situated between the emerald green waters and white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the upland forest bluffs of Floridas highest vistas, RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee is the center of Northwest Floridas rich cultural, historical, maritime and nature-based region, a brochure for the program reads. Holmes Creek is one of the most pristine bodies of water in the state, Brook said, citing the creek as just one example of what makes this region a prime location for eco-tourism. I have been told that 55 streams feed into that creek. It is a local and state treasure. Holmes Creek provides one of the most diverse habitats and richest variety of sh and mollusks in the Choctawhatchee River basin, according to the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts website. And according to the website, dozens of springs do indeed feed into Holmes Creek, including Burn-out Spring, Cypress Springs and Becton Spring.

Its about taking care of the customer as well. Helms has helped set physicians up with needed equipment and has been involved with various pharmacy chains and business owners in Jacksonville, helping them start durable equipment companies of their own. We set up several of them, but I was really tired of traveling, and my kids were getting to where they needed me home more, so I thought many times that Bonifay doesnt really have a full comprehensive (medical supply) company, Helms said. Soon, the idea of the Medical Gallery was born. The store at 217 N. Waukesha St. in Bonifay, where the Movie Gallery once was, brings a higher standard of personal care. One thing we do differently at the Medical Gallery is replace (the standard mattress that comes with the bed) with a nice pressure mattresses so the patient gets the best quality mattress, Helms said. It costs them a little more to do it that way, he said, but in the long run, the patients wont get diabetic sores or cumulous ulcers. There are also special accommodations for women who have recently undergone a mastectomy. We have a shelf private mastectomy tting room where ladies can come in, and our staff is trained for mastectomy tting, Helms said. Its top shelf stuff with Victoria Secretquality bras and ttings. When a lady comes in who has had a mastectomy, were going to treat her like royalty. Were going to give her a free manicure and pedicure from Vos, and were going to give her a book thats just meant so much to friends of ours by Jerry Bridges called What to Do When Life Hurts. The store also offers a line of high quality wigs. I just really try to love on these ladies, encourage them and develop a friendship with them in the ministry, Helms said. Helms been married to his wife for 21 years, and they have three children. Hes served as pastor of New Zion Baptist Church for 13 years. Special to Horizons The Holmes County Development Commissions Strategic Plan for Economic Development is still on track. With the leadership of strategic planning consultant Dr. David L. Goetsch, the plan was devised specically for Holmes County last year and continues to move forward. Workshops to facilitate the effort were led by Goetsch. Attending the workshops were local elected ofcials, city and county management, board members, school board members, local business owners, clergy, non-prot organizational leaders and members of the public. The mission of the Holmes County Development Commission is to mobilize the human, physical, natural, and nancial resources of the County and focus them on retaining and creating jobs, improving the local economy, and enhancing the quality of life throughout the community, the mission statement devised for the county reads. Goetsch assisted the work groups with recognizing what economic development would be desired for the county, what the county has to offer and values the county wishes to sustain during the development. Ten strategies were then formed for implementation. The Holmes County Development Commission chose three of those goals with the hope of implementing the strategies within the next one to two years: 1. Continually enhance the quality of the labor force, and provide speakers from businesses for high school classes. Also to sponsor, in conjunction with local businesses, corporate training seminars for improving skills and attitudes of existing employees. 2. Institiute a comprehensive marketing program aimed at attracting new business and engage in piggy-back marketing with larger regional economic development. 3. Encourage local entrepreneurship for local business start-ups and work with Small Business Development Center of UWF to offer its Steps to Starting a New Business seminars on-site in Holmes County. The Development Commission has asked that the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce partner with them in the implementation of the Strategic Plan. Strategic Plan implementation discussions have taken place with board member Tim Wells as chairman. Wells has identied as his rst goal a need to gain community interest and involvement. Look for kick-off receptions and regular reports from the Development Commission on how you can become involved. By TED EVERETT Executive Director Special to Horizons The Washington County Chamber of Commerces No. 1 resource is its members. With that said, our goal is to help our business community in any way possible. If you have questions on permitting, licensing or need to nd resources for your business, call us. If we do not have the answer, we can usually nd it. There are some specic areas the Chamber is focusing on in 2014. The Chamber is in the process of revamping our Economic Development Council. One priority will be to try and give more assistance to our local businesses and see if there is an opportunity to help them grow and expand their current operations. The Chamber capitalizes on our legislative relationships at all levels state, federal and local to assist local businesses with issues affecting their business growth. Weve also sent legislative delegations to the state as well as hosted forums for local businesses to share concerns with their governmental representatives. The Chamber spends a good deal of time to bring relevant seminars and courses to our business and consumer community. Last summer, the Chamber partnered with the Washington County Emergency Operations Center, local utilities and others to host the Disaster Preparedness Expo. We also hosted a Business Credit Seminar in conjunction with eight area banks. This seminar discussed the core components of a credit score and offered many tips for improving a credit score. We plan on doing so again this year. We will also sponsored a principles of management seminar with Bay Solutions and co-hosted a small business assistance seminar that helped businesses nd nancial resources and learn how to create a business plan. The Chamber continues to partner with Northwest Florida Community Hospital, the Health Department and other local businesses to combat childhood obesity in Washington County through the We Can program. If you have a particular need which might be addressed in a seminar or workshop or other efforts, please let us know. The mission of the Chamber is to develop a strong and balanced economy while improving quality of life for all citizens.

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 C4 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Additional broadband capacity is fast becoming available in the nine-county area of northwest Florida served by Opportunity Florida. As the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance (FRBA) becomes operational and commercial over the rst half of 2014, attention now turns to delivering service to the Opportunity Florida region. More than 90 percent of the construction work is completed on the northern middle-mile system which includes 56 towers for wireless, microwave broadband backhaul. At the end of January, ve sites were ready for last mile distribution, and two ber interconnection points were hot, making GigE service possible for the region. This broadband capacity is made possible through a National Telecommunications and Information Administration grant, which was awarded to the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance in August 2010. The $23.6 million grant is intended to provide additional capacity to unserved and underserved areas within the region served by FRBA. Owned jointly by Opportunity Florida in the north and Floridas Rural Heartland Economic Development Initiative in south-central Florida, FRBA is an open-access provider. That means the network is open to negotiate with any and all last mile providers seeking wholesale service through the FRBA network. So, what does this mean for the Opportunity Florida community and service area? First, the FRBA system provides lower cost, high capacity broadband to Community Anchor Institutions, commonly referred to as CAIs. CAIs include local government and public agencies including schools, libraries and hospitals. The NTIA grant was initiated with these un-served or underserved CAIs as the intended target. Most government and public services are in the process of moving to paperless transactions and recordkeeping and need the additional broadband and Internet-based capabilities. Another benet of the FRBA system will be capacity to schools and libraries, as both those institutions face online and digital mandates. Finally, more capacity to the area will bring a greater prospect of jobs and economic development. Broadband can be the great equalizer for business and industry as the world becomes completely digital and businesses are less dependent upon higher cost, traditional, metro areas in which to conduct commerce. Expanded broadband becomes the invisible highway infrastructure on which business now travels. The wireless FRBA system is seeking relationships with CAIs and last mile providers to deliver this additional capacity to the Opportunity Florida service area. Through June 2014, FRBA construction will be completed, and lastmile distribution points will be made ready to provide services to the community. Opportunity Florida is hopeful this new asset and the expanded capabilities it brings will provide a higher quality of life and economic benets to the nine-county area of Opportunity Florida.

Jim Brook is executive director of Opportunity Florida, the Northwest Florida Business Development Council and Co-managing partner of the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. Opportunity Florida serves the northwest Florida Rural Area of Opportunity (RACEC), of Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf, Franklin, Liberty, Gadsden and Wakulla counties. JIM BROOK Special to Horizons Florida rural broadband middle-mile nears completion STAFF REPORT Advances are made in medical technology every day, but Washington and Holmes counties have managed to stay on top of the latest trends, with local hospitals offering modern technology with a personalized touch. Both Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay and Chipleys Northwest Florida Community Hospital have launched clinical afliation agreements with Gulf Coast Medical Centers telemedicine network. With its use of telemedicine technology that provides medical services and the exchange of medical information to remote areas Gulf Coast Medical Center is positioning itself as a regional hub for telemedicine specically, telestroke. Stroke, caused when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain ruptures or is blocked, is the number four cause of death and the leading cause of disability, according to the American Stroke Association. With Tele-Stroke technology, a neurologist interacts directly with the patient in order to assess their condition, NFCH CEO Janet Kinney said. Telemedicine allows the specialist to diagnose a stroke from a remotely from an Emergency Room with the patient and the clinical ER team at bedside. Bringing that technology home to Chipley will allow the patient to receive a diagnosis within minutes, determining treatment that can be life-changing or even life-saving, if provided within that magic window of time. For instance, a neurosurgeon at Gulf Coast Medical Center could immediately evaluate a potential stroke patient no matter the neurosurgeons location. The doctors are wheeled in on a robot that features two-way communication capabilities. This is where were headed, I believe. said JoAnn Baker, administrator at Doctors Memorial Hospital. Because its so difcult to get specialists to rural areas, we want to be sure our patients receive the same quality of care (as they would in a larger city). Were very excited to offer telemedicine to our patients and continue to stay on top of new technologies.

Area hospitals now offer telemedicine By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Key economic indicators suggest Holmes, Jackson and Washington counties will enjoy continued growth. Leading statistics compiled by analytics company Alteryx showed overall growth in 2013, with more growth projected over the next ve years. Washington County, which currently has 24,979 residents, is expected to lead population growth in the tri-county area, expanding to 25,837 about 3.4 percent by 2019. Holmes County is expected to see growth of about 1.9 percent, rising from 19,889 to 20,272, while Jackson County is expected to gain a modest .8 percent over the next ve years, rising from 48,799 to 49,234. Conversely, the number of households is expected to increase in the area: Washington County households will increase about 4.5 percent from 8,879 to 9,285; Holmes, about 2.8 percent from 7,334 to 7,542; and Jackson, about 2 percent, from 16,987 to 17,340. The median age of persons in those households is also expected to rise slightly. Jackson County is projected to see the largest average age increase, from 40.7 years old to 41.3 (1.5 percent); Holmes Countys median age will increase from 41.5 to 42.1 (1.4 percent), and Washingtons will rise from about 40.8 to 41.3 (1.2 percent). Residents are expected to spend more over the next ve years, as well, likely as a result of an estimated growth in median household income. The average annual income of Washington County residents is projected to see an 18.8 percent jump, rising from $38,769 to $46,084. Jackson County is expected to see a 16 percent growth in this area, from $40,097 to $46,584, while Holmes County is close behind, rising 15 percent from $36,064 to $41,480. Increased income is expected to generate increased area revenues, with total consumer expenditures projected to rise by an average of 25 percent. Expenditures in Washington County will experience the highest jump, from about $373.6 million to $470.2 million; Holmes County will rise from about $291.7 million to $365 million; and Jackson County will see a slightly smaller jump, from about $697.5 million to about $866.8 million. Though Washington County remains among Northwest Floridas highest unemployment rate at 7.6 percent as of February, however, that number is considerably down from this time last year, according to Richard Williams of CareerSource Chipola. The latest unemployment numbers from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity show Washington Countys unemployment rate has decreased about 1.4 percent over the last year, Williams said. Holmes Countys unemployment is currently 5.6 percent, down from 6.6 percent at this time last year, and Jackson Countys unemployment rate is also down slightly, from 6.6 percent to 6.3 percent. Williams expects that trend to continue, slowly, but steadily. Despite some continued clouds, the overall forecast for (Washington, Holmes, Jackson) and surrounding counties appears to be much brighter than what weve experienced in the last few years.

By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Washington and Holmes counties are expected to see a lot of pre-planning action in the transportation and infrastructure departments within the next several months, primarily in the areas of State Road 79, State Road 77, south of Interstate 10. SR 79 will be widened from I-10 in Holmes County to the Alabama state line, and SR 77 will be widened from one mile north of Wausau to just south of Clayton Road (County Road 276). The project is part of a ve-year work program outlining about $300 million in new infrastructure projects in the Panhandle that is intended to increase capacity on state roadways that connect to I-10. Holmes County will also soon see bridge replacements on Hicks Road over West Pittman Creek and Valee Road over Blue Creek. In addition to the road expansions, Holmes and Washington counties are looking to improve and expand existing infrastructure in preparation for new industry though grants from the Northwest Florida Water Management District. That funding part of about $10 million recently approved by the NWFWD will be used mainly for the planning and engineering of utility expansion south of Interstate 10. The city of Chipley received $440,000 in grants, which ofcials say will help develop a strategic plan to improve Washington Countys appeal to new industry. Our goal is to provide water, sewer and gas south of the interstate to help promote job growth out there, Dan Miner, Chipley city administrator, said. When the economy was rolling pretty good a few years ago, we had a lot of interest in that area (from potential industry), but (lack of infrastructure) was one of the snags, and we just didnt have the funding to make that happen.

When the economy was rolling pretty good a few years ago, we had a lot of interest in that area (from potential industry), but (lack of infrastructure) was one of the snags, and we just didnt have the funding to make that happen. Three Holmes County communities were also awarded NWFWD grants at the beginning of 2014. The town of Esto was awarded $149,690 to replace 4,850 feet of aging water line and reduce water loss. The town of Noma received $415,292 to replace 28,100 feet of their water distribution system and 25 re hydrants, as well as to provide additional valve and meter installation to identify deciencies in their water system. The city of Bonifay was awarded $268,900 to replace 4,590 feet of asbestos cement and a lead joint water main to reduce water loss and help protect the public and environment. This is very important to the future growth of our city, Mayor Lawrence Cloud said. Weve got to have our infrastructure in order in order to accommodate any future growth. If you dont have infrastructure you cant have growth.

However, Judge Patterson and 14th Judicial Circuit Director of GAL Recruiting and Training, Theresa Roberts, say a volunteer shortage can make the voices of Holmes and Washington counties children more dif cult to hear. By law, every child under state supervision must have a guardian ad litem. Guardian ad Litem volunteers are the boots on the ground for the judge, said Roberts. But (one person) cant possibly visit all 70 kids in Washington and Holmes counties. There is a tremendous need for volunteers in Holmes and Washington counties, agreed Judge Patterson. They serve as the childs advocate and conduit for me in court. The parents have representation, the Department of Children and Families have representation, and the children need representation, too. They have that through the Guardian ad Litem volunteers, he added. Theyre the ones who speak up for the child, and its a great pleasure for me to serve with those who give so freely of their time for these children. They can tell you how rewarding this process is. Ideally, there should be one volunteer per household in each county. Amy Grif n, Case Coordinator for Holmes and Washington counties, says the area needs at least ten more volunteers to alleviate the shortage. To volunteer, candidates must take a 30hour class and pass an application process. We require the children be seen at least once a month, but volunteers can go as often as they like, said Grifn. We work around the volunteers schedules, even ensuring they dont have to stay the entire day when subpoenaed for court. The most recent swearing in of volunteers was held at the Guardian ad Litem of ce, located at 1352 South Blvd. in Chipley. To volunteer, contact Grif n at 638-6043.CAROL KENT | Times-AdvertiserJudge Chris Patterson (center) swore in the areas two newest Guardian Ad Litems, Dorothy Powell (left) and Rhonda Dickinson Thursday.

The conclusion was a rare happy ending, with Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock reporting Baby Shannon, as she became known worldwide, had been found. We are the proud papas of a baby girl, Haddock said in a national press conference. There were a lot of grown men crying and shedding tears. Percentage-wise, we usually dont get this kind of ending.

The friendly, chatty ve-year old enthusiastically played with her birthday gifts, showing no signs of her ordeal. Sheriff Haddock says theres no doubt of Shannons resilience. The raw emotion we felt nding Shannon alive ve years ago pales in comparison to the joy we experience watching this child grow and experience life with uninhibited hope, stated Sheriff Haddock.  Shannon is happy, thriving and taking on the world with the same feisty nature we saw all those years ago.  There is a light in her eyes and that is our denition of success. Like most girls her age, she enjoys playing with Barbies, watching movies starring the Disney princesses and going to DisneyWorld, a past time her mother indulges every chance she gets. Protecting Shannons privacy remains a priority for her mother, especially with the national attention the case received. Shannon, who has a different name for public use, checks in with the 14th Judicial Circuit on an annual basis, making sure she gets a chance to see Sheriff Haddock each time. While Shannons nightmare has seemingly evolved into a fairytale, the villain in this real life story has been put away for a long time. Judge Allen Register sentenced Susan Baker to 25 years in prison in 2010, stating her actions were bizarre and cruel. Authorities discovered Shannon at Bakers home in the closed small cedar chest, shoved underneath a bed. Baker reportedly stashed the baby in the box whenever investigators were near, using baking soda to mask the smell of Shannons dirty diapers. Baker, who is Shannons step aunt, occasionally babysat her, and had been given the child by her mother, who reportedly agreed to give Baker full custody. The motives for her actions are still unclear. We may never know why she did it, Haddock told The News Thursday. The important thing is she was sound safe and is happy and thriving today.

BOARD from page A1By TOM McLAUGHLIN315-4435 | @TomMcLaughlin tmclaughlin@nwfdailynews.com State Rep. Matt Gaetz has introduced legislation to allow people found innocent of criminal charges using the Stand Your Ground defense the ability to request their records in those cases be expunged. The amendment, introduced Wednesday and passed by the House on Thursday as an adjunct to a larger bill, generated controversy because some media outlets believe Gaetzs proposal would hinder public access to court records. One Florida lawmaker is seeking to impede the medias ability to scrutinize the law, the Hufngton Post Politics website reported. Gaetz said that under his amendment, a vindicated Stand Your Ground defendant would have to seek certication from a state attorney that says you stood your ground and charges would be improper. Only then, Gaetz said, could the defendant petition a judge to expunge the ofcial court record. If someone rightfully stands their ground and a state attorney and judge agree they rightfully stood their ground, I dont believe that a person should have a criminal record for the rest of their life, said Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. The Tampa Bay Times investigated Stand Your Ground in 2012 by reviewing 200 cases in which the law had been used as defense in a criminal proceeding. Times Editor and Vice President Neil Brown, quoted on the Hufngton Post website, said his papers investigation would have been more difcult with Gaetzs legislation in place. Closing records and putting controversial cases that involve violence into the dark is a bad idea, Brown was quoted as saying. Our work was done based on court records as well as the stories of the incidents when they occurred. Gaetz said the Times misrepresented the issue. The amendment I passed gives no Floridian any automatic right to expunge an arrest, he said. Neither would his amendment prevent media scrutiny of the Stand Your Ground law, Gaetz said.Gaetz adds Stand Your Ground to bill

As caring pet owners, we are typically well aware of the various dangers that threaten our furry friends safety. Keeping their vaccinations up to date, making sure they are properly groomed, and providing them with the most nutritious food to ensure good health are just a few things that we tend to with the utmost importance. However, numerous pet-poisonous items commonly found around our households are often overlooked and can be detrimental to our pets lives. A large variety of household plants, foods and chemicals that are considered safe for human use are toxic to our pets. Some of the most dangerous plants to keep out of your pets reach include any owers in the lily family, including sago palms, oleander, foxglove, castor bean and poinsettias. Though these are bad for both cats and dogs, the toxic dose often differs between species. Some of the most common foods that can be toxic to dogs are grapes and raisins, or any food items containing the arti cial sweetener xylitol, which can be contained in chewing gum as well as many lowcalorie foods as a sugar substitute, said Dr. Medora Pashmakova, a clinical associate professor in emergency and critical care at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Chocolate is also a well-known toxin to pets; however, its particularly the dark chocolate and baking chocolate varieties that pose the real threats due to their higher cocoa and theobromine content. Although cats are more discerning when it comes to eating household items, grooming themselves after coming into contact with any toxic chemicals can be very dangerous. Owners of cats should be vigilant about any chemical spills or even the use of countertop cleaning products, which can be caustic when cats groom themselves after being in contact, Pashmakova said. In addition, even small volumes of ingested antifreeze or coolant uid can be lethal to cats and requires seeing a veterinarian right away, without waiting for clinical signs to appear. A good rule of thumb is that if something is toxic to humans, it is likely toxic to our pets as well. At the same time, medications considered safe in people (such as over the counter pain medications or cold/ u medications) are NOT safe for dogs and cats, Pashmakova said. Never give your dog or cat human medications without speaking to a veterinarian rst. Dr. Pashmakova said keeping your pets safe is similar to keeping babies safe. This sometimes includes pet-proo ng your house and anticipating what cats, dogs, ferrets and other small animals can get into. Keeping cupboards secured, bathrooms closed, bathroom garbage stowed away, medications locked up and any chemical spills cleaned up quickly and thoroughly are just some basics that all pet owners should keep in mind, Pashmakova said. Having a good plan of action in the event of ingestion is also key. This can be something as simple as calling your veterinarian during daytime hours or calling an emergency hospital after-hours. If your pet ingests any of these items, it is best to play it safe and contact your veterinarian or the Animal Poison Control Center; they can help you determine if your pet needs to be seen by a doctor and if they consumed a toxic dose. The Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital ER is always available to advise on toxic ingestions, and the Animal Poison Control Hotline af liated with the University of Illinois veterinary school is a 24/7 resource with boardcerti ed toxicologists to advise owners or veterinarians on how to deal with toxicities. There is no harm in being extra cautious when dealing with possible toxicities around the house. Be sure to keep these particular items out of your pets reach at all times, and to call your veterinarian or poison control center immediately if they do come into contact with them. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to the safety of your furry family member.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com APage 4SectionMy rst month as Editor of the Washington County News and Holmes County Times Advertiser has been met with overwhelming community response, and I am grateful. This is no surprise, though, as thats the kind of treatment I remember our small communities giving when I was growing up here in the late 80s and early 90s. There are few who have the pleasure of waking up and being able to unabashedly say, Yippee! I get to go to work today! I am one of those lucky few. My love for the written word developed at a young age, having a long history of pets and vehicles named after favorite authors, including a cat named Ernest Hemingway. This af nity for writing seems a perfect marriage with the genuine love I have for this community. This new role will give me an even better opportunity to meet and serve more of you, my extended family. Here in the infancy of my experience as an editor, there is a lot to learn, but I also have high hopes for The News and The Times-Advertiser this year. Our goal is to serve the community objectively and responsibly while giving our readers the best possible newspaper with each issue. These are your communities newspapers. They were here long before most of us and feature news about you and people you know. The paper serves as a forum for your opinions and chronicles the milestones of your family, from those who came before you, to your children and grandchildren today. It is for this reason, I hope to be a part of those milestones and look forward to featuring them in your local paper. I used to simplistically believe working for a newspaper was comprised of just two skills: reporting and writing. Over time, I have learned rst, that I do not work for these newspapers; I am simply employed by them. I actually work for my community. Second, everything else will come as long as I remember that rst lesson. I once heard that to write was to become conscious. When youre conscious and writing from a place of insight, simplicity, and real caring about truth, you have the ability to throw the lights on for your reader. I will certainly make accuracy a rst priority and accept the risk of possibly being disliked on occasion for reporting with facts. Editors have a moral obligation to do nothing less. Your help and advice in doing so will always be appreciated. The editors door is always open.Thankful for Southern hospitality As we know, the three basic needs of man are water, food, and shelter. Through -out history, the availability of water has in uenced the development of civilization. Today, we turn on the tap and water comes forth and we take its availability for granted. For those of my generation who grew up in the country before rural electri cation, a central hand-dug well was the source of all water needs about the home, and it was drawn up with a bucket and rope or chain. Songs such as The Old Oaken Bucket romanticized the drawing of water from an open well, but the daily chore of drawing water was not a dear to my childhood memory. A Zinc bucket, not an oaken bucket, was used for drawing up the water, but for other uses as well. A water bucket sat on a shelf on the back porch where eld hands washed up in enamel wash pans before meals, and where we washed our faces upon arising in the morning and our feet before retiring at night. A zinc or enamel bucket in the kitchen also held the water used for lling the ever-present kettle which sat on the wood stove and supplied water for cooking and dish washing. Many wood stoves also had a reservoir which had to be lled from the bucket. Whenever these were empty, a trip to the well was necessary. Livestock and chickens needed a source of fresh water and that also came from the well and was drawn up by the zinc bucket and toted or hauled to the chicken yard or barn yard. Since we had open range, the cattle only came in the barn for the night, so they found their water in a near-by creek. The hogs also found their source of water. However, the mule stalls had to have a constant supply of water. We also gathered and tied into bunches many bundles of turnips and other greens for sale. In order to keep them fresh and to remove some of the soil which clings to the roots, we dipped them into zinc tubs of water drawn from the well with the zinc bucket. Hog-killing days called for a lot of water from the well as the vat for scalding was lled from water drawn up from the well. Sometimes on those days, a drum full of water might be transported to the vat on the mule-drawn ground slide. Gallons of water for washing the chitterlings used for sausage casings also had to be drawn from the well. It was usually my chore to use a dipper and pour a stream of water through the smelly things as Aunt Willie Mae Wells or Verdie Hewett or whoever was doing the scraping or ridding as it was called held them open. Wash days required a lot of waterdrawing. Many squeaks of the rope and pulley were required to ll the black iron wash pot and three zinc tubs for the weekly wash day. Needless to say, clothes were worn for several days and when you hear a joke about a weekly bath, it is no joke. After the clothes were washed, often the oors were scrubbed with the lye water used to boil the dirty clothes. Then the rinse water would be poured on the oors to rinse them. Also about once a year, the kitchen chairs would get a bath in the lye water and rinsed in the tubs and left in the sun to dry. No water was wasted. Clean rinse water might be left in the sun to get warm for a bath that evening. Instead of an open well, a few people had a pitcher pump and later, a bigger pump with a long handle that functioned the same way by means of a vacuum which drew up the water. In fact, our grandma had a pitcher pump with a sink installed in her kitchen by her enterprising son, Uncle Josh Wells. She was the rst person I knew to have running water in her kitchen. They still had the well outside for all other uses. Most rural churches had no well and I have memories of going to allday singings at Bethel in Washington County and St. Johns and New Effort in Holmes County. At Bethel, wed walk down the hill to the Tom Collins home at the Brackin homestead where we drank from a common dipper the cool water drawn up with a zinc bucket. I dont suppose it ever occurred to us the possibility of spreading disease with the use of the common dipper. At New Effort, we walked to the Elliot home. At St Johns, it was the Leavins home, I believe. St Johns had a spring near-by where some of the men of the church had enclosed a small pool which they used for baptisms, but I dont recall drinking from the spring. Some of the boys would slip away and go swimming there. At Brackin School, we didnt draw water, as the spring had been channeled via a curbing and then through a pipe under a concrete slab. We could squat and drink directly from the pipe or we could drink from the common dipper and bucket carried to the classroom. We are in the process of opening the well that supplied the Tison family with water for the purpose of allowing visiting children to experience the way our generation did laundry before rural families had electricity. Drawing water, a daily chore to us, offers todays children an opportunity to experience a link with the past and develop a greater appreciation for the ready source of water which we should never take for granted.

to mussels to barnacles if youve ever tried to scrape barnacles off a boat bottom, you have to truly admire the power in the sheepshead jaws, because they nip them off like carrots. Catching sheepshead is a learned art. It looks as if it should be very simple; toss a piece of fresh-cut shrimp in front of them and they eat it, most of the time. But that parsimonious mouth is very stingy when it comes to ingesting hooks; often they nip off the bait and leave Mr. Mustad hanging naked. First, its essential to use a hook small enough to fit the relatively small mouth of the fish; size 1 or 1/0 is the ticket to admission. Actually smaller hooks work even better, but the teeth are so strong that the fish can occasionally bite right through the light wire of smaller hardware. (They also can bite through mono or fluoro leader and line, and theres not much you can do about that if the hook goes in far enough for them to chomp on either. Adding wire leader is not an option they will rarely eat even the tastiest bait suspended on wire.) You usually need a sinker of some sort because heads are most often found in holes, channels and cuts, usually around rocks, concrete or other hard structure where shellfish can fix and grow and where small crabs live. Boat docks and bridge pilings also attract them. One good way to rig is to put the hook on a dropper made of 20-pound test hard mono or fluoro (both have more resistance to teeth than standard mono) and then hang the sinker on the bitter end of the line about 18 inches below. With this rig, you can immediately feel it when a sh starts nibbling on the bait; if the sinker is above the hook, as in a standard rig, the sh has to bite hard enough to move the sinker before you feel anythingand by that time the bait might be long gone. Using braided line helps a lot the nostretch ber transmits the feel of the nibbles much better than mono. Another good rig is a 1/8 to ounce jig head with an oversized hook, size 1/0 or so, on which a piece of fresh cut shrimp, about thumbnail-sized, is impaled. With the jig, you feel the bite immediately, and it casts more easily than a separate sinker/ dropper rig. While fresh shrimp is by far the easiest bait to come by, sheepshead also readily take an assortment of other natural baits; oysters, ddler crabs, sand eas and tubeworms are all high on the list of sheepshead a cionados. Whatever the bait, the trick is to hold light tension on the line when you feel that rst bump. If you can sense weight there as you take up the slack, go ahead and set the hook; you miss some, but you hook most once you develop the touch. You often can visually locate sheepshead in clear water; they tend to hang near the surface, and you can spot them as they turn and ash. But even if you dont see them, you often can stir sh up by chumming around crusty pilings and riprap; use a hoe or spud to scrape the barnacles. As this stuff showers down, sheepshead will smell it and move in from considerable distance. Larger heads congregate on rockpiles and ledges in 8 to 30 feet of water to spawn from February into early April: many nearshore reefs also hold them at this time. There also is a limited ats shery for small sheepshead in Panhandle bays in early spring, anywhere you might see red sh tailing. On the lowest tides, its not uncommon to see them up in the shallows waving that gray tail as they root out an oyster or a shrimp. However, a sheepshead seen in this way is not a sheepshead caught; they are paranoid on a level that makes bone sh seem like carp. If you land an arti cial lure anywhere in the same zip code, they will instantly vaporize. The only tactic that has ever worked for me is to cast a whole shrimp, unweighted, on a light spinning rig uptide from the sh and let it sit there. Sometimes the sh smells it, swims up and eats it when that happens, you have achieved one of the pinnacles of ats angling. They put up a nice battle in the shallows, too, with some fast, powerful runs. Oddly, these same sh might travel to nearby potholes when the spirit moves them, and then they become dumb as cat sh; most of the large winter catches are made by nding these backcountry holes. They also settle into rocky holes in many coastal rivers during cold weather. Sheepshead are in the same gang as the pin sh, which explains something about their physiography they are armed with some of the sharpest, longest spines in shdom sort of the uberpin sh, if you will and the armament sprouts in all directions, from the back, the chest and the nether regions; there is hardly a safe way to pick up a sheepshead except with tongs. But pick up a sheepshead you must, because thats what it takes to extract those wonderful white llets. As you might expect of a creature that eats only shell sh, the taste of sheepshead completely belies the barnyardian name; it is among the nest of all shes, right up there with hog snapper another critter with a nasty name and a wonderful taste, come to think of it. After years of being wounded by heads, I nally came to the conclusion that the only reasonable way to deal with them was to disarm them. These days, when I catch one it goes on ice immediately to put it to sleep, as we like to tell the grandkids, and then out come the poultry shears. I systematically nip off every pointed spine on every sh if you leave even one, I can assure you it will nd a way to bury itself in your nger. Once the spines are gone, sheepshead llet pretty much like other sh, but they do have a thicker hide and tougher scales run the point of a sharp llet knife up each side of the backbone to make a channel before you start the lleting cut and it will go more smoothly. You have to cut around the base of the dorsal spines, too; they extend well into the meat. Now strip off the skin and youre ready to cook. On small sh, trim off the rib cage because it doesnt have much meat; on larger ones, you might nd it better to leave the rib meat in place and deal with the bones once the sh is cooked. Sheepshead are delicious any way you care to cook them. One of my shing friends likes to cube the meat, boil it brie y in crab boil spices like Zatarans, and then dip in melted butter and lemon juice tasty as lobster, and more tender. Of course, you cant beat breading and deep frying, and simply putting them in a sh basket, adding a little nonstick oil and plopping them on a hot grill is also a great way to go. OUTDOORS Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Page 7www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection By FRANK SARGEANT Special to the News Herald Sheepshead look like an oversized saltwater bluegill in a convict suit, and as such, they ought to be very easy to catch. To be sure, they are abundant panfish of the saltwater kind, but catching them can at times be a challenge. However, if youre interested in eating bottom fish and who isnt they are becoming one of the few games in town, so tightly are the feds limiting our take of grouper and most snappers. And theyre one of the more active species in Panhandle waters from now through March. The limit on sheepshead still allows you to take them home by the flock; the rule is 15 daily over 12 inches, which means if you have two or three anglers aboard and happen into a swarm of hungry heads, you can actually fill the cooler, a rarity with any species these days. You wont be taking home any 20-pounders, as you might with gags or red snapper, to be sure, (the all-tackle sheepshead record is 21 pounds, 4 ounces, the Florida record 15-2) but a stack of 1to 3-pounders is likely, and if you fish offshore rockpiles during the February/ April spawn, you might add some fish of 5 to 8 pounds to the box. (There are no federal regulations on the species, but you must comply with state limits when you return to shore.) Sheepshead are not wimps; theyre remarkably powerful critters for their size. A five-pounder caught on the flats is a match for a redfish of similar size though its rare to catch em on the flats because they are so much more wary than redfish (see below). And when you hook up with a heavy one around a piling, hes just as quick to wrap up and cut you off as any snook. First, a quick scoop of biology; Archosargus probatocephalus is a member of the porgie family, thus his shape. Sheepshead are named for their teeth, which do look somewhat sheeplike, and enable them to crunch up the shellfish and crabs which are their primary diet. Inside the mouth are hard, bony nodules which complete the crushing operation; they can grind up anything from oysters to mussels to barnacles if youve ever tried to scrape barnacles off a boat bottom, you have to truly admire the power in the sheepshead jaws, because they nip them off like carrots. Catching sheepshead is a learned art. It looks as if it should be very simple; toss a piece of fresh-cut shrimp in front of them and they eat it, most of the time. But that parsimonious mouth is very stingy when it comes to ingesting hooks; often they nip off the bait and leave Mr. Mustad hanging naked. First, its essential to use a hook small enough to fit the relatively small mouth of the fish; size 1 or 1/0 is the ticket to admission. Actually smaller hooks work even better, but the teeth are so strong that the fish can occasionally bite right through the light wire of smaller hardware. (They also can bite through mono or fluoro leader and line, and theres not much you can do about that if the hook goes in far enough for them to chomp on either. Adding wire leader is not an option they will rarely eat even the tastiest bait suspended on wire.) You usually need a sinker of some sort because heads are most often found in holes, channels and cuts, usually around rocks, concrete or other hard structure where shellfish can fix and grow and where small crabs live. Boat docks and bridge pilings also attract them. One good way to rig is to put the hook on a dropper made of 20-pound test hard mono or fluoro (both have more resistance to teeth than standard mono) and then hang the sinker on the bitter end of the line about 18 inches below. With this rig, you can immediately feel it when a fish starts nibbling on the bait; if the sinker is above the hook, as in a standard rig, the fish has to bite hard enough to move the sinker before you feel anythingand by that time the bait might be long gone. Using braided line helps a lot the no-stretch fiber transmits the feel of the nibbles much better than mono. Another good rig is a 1/8 to ounce jig head with an oversized hook, size 1/0 or so, on which a piece of fresh cut shrimp, about thumbnail-sized, is impaled. With the jig, you feel the bite immediately, and it casts more easily than a separate sinker/dropper rig. While fresh shrimp is by far the easiest bait to come by, sheepshead also readily take an assortment of other natural baits; oysters, fiddler crabs, sand fleas and tubeworms are all high on the list of sheepshead aficionados. Whatever the bait, the trick is to hold light tension on the line when you feel that PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALDOutdoors SUNDAY February 2, 2014I hope everyone is taking advantage of this cold weather instead of complaining about it. This is exactly what the doctor ordered for all you speckled trout fishermen. Usually the Hot Water Canal is the place to go when winter comes, but this year they dont seem to be pulling hot water, at least not when Im up there. The Lancing Smith Steam Plant pulls in cold bay water from the east side and after heating it up usually discharges hot (72 degree) water on the outflow side. Im told they use the hot steam to turn the turbines to make electricity, which in turn is how the Hot Water Canal gets its name. Usually when you see steam or smoke coming from the stacks at the plant you can depend on hot water coming out on the discharge side. The last time I was up there I could see smoke coming from the stacks, but the water was not any warmer than the bay water. During our last freeze a few weeks ago mullet were seen stunned on the bottom due to the water temperature being so cold. I have been up there in freezing weather and watched fly fishermen wading in the shallow parts of the canal just like it was the middle of June. Maybe when I got there they had stopped discharging warm water, but the trout didnt seem to notice they were packed in there from end to end. It is possible at times to catch trout on just about anything you throw at them. When the water is clear it is possible to sight fish trout using grubs or live shrimp. The average depth is about three feet of water. But if you want to catch really big trout you just about have to have finger mullet and this is where the rub comes in. I know of nowhere a fisherman can buy finger mullet because they are so hard to keep alive. That means you have to cast net your own. In the summer, finger mullet are a dime a dozen in shallow water. Not so in freezing weather. If you can figure out where to catch finger mullet fish them with just a hook and no lead. You will catch the trout of a lifetime, but remember you can only take home a picture. The fish has to go back to the water unharmed.Hooked on OutdoorsEmail outdoors news to outdoors@pcnh.com More coverage online at newsherald.com IT OUT: See more outdoors photos and recipes at newsherald.com/sections/outdoors & & Brought home a big buck or sh?

New health plans bring hefty fees for certain drugsMIAMI (AP) Breast cancer survivor Ginny Mason was thrilled to get health coverage under the Affordable Care Act despite her pre-existing condition. But when she realized her arthritis medication fell under a particularly costly tier of her plan, she was forced to switch to another brand. Under the plan, her Celebrex would have cost $648 a month until she met her $1,500 prescription deductible, followed by an $85 monthly co-pay. Mason is one of the many Americans with serious illnesses including cancer, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis who are indeed nding relatively low monthly premiums under President Barack Obamas law. But some have been shocked at how much their prescriptions are costing as insurers are sorting drug prices into a complex tier system and in some cases charging co-insurance rates as high as 50 percent. That can leave patients on the hook for thousands. I was grateful for the Affordable Care Act because it didnt turn me down but ... its like wheres the affordable on this one? said Mason, a 61-year-old from West Lafayette, Ind., who currently pays an $800 monthly premium. Before the federal health law took effect, Mason paid slightly more for her monthly premium on a plan that didnt cover her arthritis or pain medications and some routine doctors visits. Avalere Health, a market research and consulting rm, estimates some consumers will pay half the cost of their specialty drugs under health overhaul-related plans, while customers in the private market typically pay no more than a third. Patient advocates worry that insurers may be trying to discourage chronically ill patients from enrolling by putting high cost drugs onto specialty tiers. Brian Rosen, senior vice president for public policy for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, said the group studied premiums and benets for patients with blood cancer in seven states, including Florida, California, Texas and New York. They found 50 percent co-insurance rates for specialty drugs on several plans in Florida and Texas, while the highest coinsurance rates on California plans were 30 percent. New York co-pays were typically $70. Under the law, insurers cant charge an individual more than $6,350 in out-of pocket costs a year and no more than $12,700 for a family policy. But patient advocates warn those with serious illnesses could pay their entire out-of-pocket cap before their insurance kicks in any money. The challenge is for the sickest patients, the ones that need access to these specialty drugs, the costs are going to come in most cases from that out-of-pocket cap ... they are likely to hit that $6,350 ceiling and in some cases quickly, Rosen said.Specialty drugsOnly 1 percent of prescriptions written in 2012 were for specialty drugs, but they accounted for 25 percent of the total cost of prescription drugs, according to a study by Americas Health Insurance Plans. Insurers generally can choose to put whichever drugs they want into the specialty tier of a plan. Generic drugs for blood pressure or cholesterol typically fall into categories that require patients to pay less than $20 out of pocket. But patients can end up spending signicantly more when they pay for a percentage of a specialty drugs cost. Two of the most frequently prescribed specialty drugs in recent years include the cancer drug Avastin, with an $11,000 average annual price per patient, and the hypertension drug Letairis, which costs $32,000 per year, according to health insurers. Even before the Affordable Care Act took effect, insurers had increasingly begun requiring patients to pay a percentage of the drug costs instead of a at co-pay, but experts say patients often spend more for their prescriptions in plans offered under the health law because of the co-insurance. Theres a signicant percentage of plans who are using co-insurance of 50 percent or higher, said Caroline Pearson, who tracks the health care overhaul for Avalere Health, which studied plans in 19 states. It is generally a lot higher than what we see in private insurance. Once they pay more than several hundred dollars, Pearson says patients start to abandon their medications. William Hurd signed up for a Cigna plan with a $616 monthly premium that covered him and his wife in December. The government kicks in about $900 a month in tax credits. Hurd, a 61-year-old diabetic who works a construction job in Orlando, was eager to ll his insulin prescription along with two other medications. But he was shocked when the pharmacy said he would have to pay $1,400 out of pocket for a 90-day supply. He was under the impression that prescriptions were part of the plan and thought he only had a $10 co-pay for prescriptions. I already had the plan. I was in, and I was ready to cancel it. If Ive got to pay 1,000 more dollars for drugs ... then its not worth it, he said. Fortunately, Hurd called his doctor and was able to switch to a cheaper brand of insulin and ended up paying only $112. This was an extremely expensive misunderstanding, said his insurance broker Leslie Glogau.

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Holmes and Washington counties are gearing for growth in 2014, with both counties showing signs of progress in the areas of the economy, health care and technology. Key indicators show both counties are also projected to experience growth from 2013 through increased median household incomes, lower unemployment rates, and larger populations.WASHINGTON COUNTYThe Washington County Chamber of Commerce is focusing on economic growth by hosting a series of Economic Development Symposiums in Chipley. Such symposiums have provided insight into how economic development works, while identifying Washington Countys needs, strengths and weaknesses. Members of both the business community and private sectors came together to brainstorm ways to jumpstart the local economy. Assets identi ed included the countys proximity to transportation corridors such as I-10 and State Road 77 and U.S. 90, availability of large tracts of quality land, quality hospital and education systems, natural resources and existing infrastructure. Ideas to enhance those existing assets included creating and keeping a current inventory of available land tracts and their available resources, such as water and sewer access. Also discussed was the importance of pre-developing the areas most desirable to develop by initiating new infrastructure. Expanding that infrastructure got a hand up from a recent grant from the Northwest Florida Water Management District. The city of Chipley has begun preliminary plans to use those funds to expand existing infrastructure south of Interstate 10. State Road 77 will also see expansion, with a widening project underway from one mile north of Wausau to just south of Clayton Road (County Road 276). Two new schools are on the horizon for Washington County as well, with construction plans underway for a new Kate M. Smith Elementary campus in Chipley and a new Vernon Elementary School in Vernon. Meanwhile, plans by the Ebro Dog Track to seek adding slot machines as added revenue are stalled while proposed Legislation is batted back and forth by the House with the idea of setting up a new gambling commission to provide more oversight and regulation of all aspects of gambling in the state. The legislation as it stands would exempt the state lottery and mandate a constitutional amendment requiring a statewide referendum be held on any expansion of gambling.HOLMES COUNTYHolmes County is hoping to see economic growth, along with new industry under the leadership of newly hired Holmes County Development Commission Executive Director Raymon Thomas. Of cials are eyeing the possibility of a new industrial park in the county and report that at least one manufacturing industry may be interested in the area. Holmes County is continuing with their Strategic Plan for Economic Development and hope to build upon its strengths, such as natural resources, a lower tax base and abundance of available property. The Holmes County Development Commission spearheads the effort to pursue that Holmes County promotes the growth of an Enterprise Zone which ensures that local businesses and residents are zone certi ed. The 20 square mile zone is divided into three non-contiguous areas covering Bonifay, Ponce de Leon and Esto. The Development Commission acts as the of cial representative of Enterprise Zone activity to ensure that businesses and residents located in the zone will be able to receive numerous incentives. The TDC also encourages local entrepreneurship for local business start-ups and works with the Small Business Development Center of UWF to offer its Steps to Starting a New Business seminars on-site in Holmes County as part of its strategic plan. Holmes County will also experience infrastructure expansion to help encourage other new industry, with recent grant monies also helping lay the ground work for widening of State Road 79 and NWFWD grants to help the City of Bonifay, Town of Esto and Town of Noma improve water and sewer systems. Both counties continue to participate in the RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project, a multi-county consortium which seeks to bring tourism into the rural counties of Florida. The project is a public/private partnership that encourages sustainable economic development through the preservation and promotion of the natural, cultural and historical resources of the Apalachicola and Choctawhatchee River basins. Holmes Creek provides one of the most diverse habitats and richest variety of sh and mollusks in the Choctawhatchee River basin, according to the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts website.Holmes, Washington counties showing signs of expansionSPECIAL TO HORIZONSState Road 79 is among roads that will soon be expanded under a $10 million FDOT project.

www.commercialpropertyinvestments.usBayCountyAssociationofRealtors ChipolaAreaBoardofRealtors By CAROL KENT and CECILIA SPEARS638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com cspears@ chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Progress on the proposed Rhythm development, centered between U.S. 231 and State 77, seems to have lost a beat. Rhythm, a proposed age-restricted community of 55 and older, is expected to have 3,200 dwelling units and promises a small amount of commercial, ofce and retail for the communitys immediate needs. The 1,883-acre parcel purchased in 2006 for about $3,700 an acre and currently on the tax rolls at $1,000 an acre is in the southeastern corner of the county where Jackson, Bay and Washington counties join along County Line Road. Backers of the project hope the project falls back into step, but Rhythm is at an apparent standstill as developers await answers regarding when development can begin. There are numerous preconditions to commencing development throughout the Development Order, said Linda Loomis Shelley of Attorneys Fowler White Boggs ofce in a March 2014 letter regarding the property. Shelley went on to list several environmental requirements such as: All pre-development base line conditions must be documented Fish sampling must be implemented prior to submittal of the Master Stormwater Management Permit A Master Stormwater Permit from the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD) must be obtained The Habitat Management Plan must be updated Conservation easements must be conveyed for Buckhorn Creek, Goshum Creek, and Long Brand Creek Wildlife Corridor A gopher tortoise relocation permit must be obtained from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) Though the property owners have indicated work on many of these activates is under way, none of the listed preconditions have been completed. (Based on this information) it is not possible for development to commence for a minimum of 18-24 months, Shelley said. Even then, it is anticipated that required road work will need to be completed or substantially underway before actual work on the site can begin and needless to say, prep work for roadway construction is substantial and time consuming. Chief among the issues stalling out the project are the FFWCCs guidelines for gopher tortoise permitting. Though commissioners were of the understanding no permitting was required because of preconstruction activity falling under the category of silviculture, the logging company tasked with clearing the land reports it was told otherwise. Gopher Tortoise Guidelines provide that silviculture activities do not require a gopher tortoise permit Because a contrary position has been represented to the loggers that a gopher tortoise permit is require at this time, the logger has pulled its equipment off the site and will not return to complete work until the (FFWCC) veries in writing that a permit is not required, Shelley said. This is not the rst struggle the development has experienced, however. Since Feb. 29, 2008, Rhythm has worked for approval of its DRI, or Development of Regional Impact, which includes requirements for specic and detailed plans on everything from how infrastructure will be supported to the impact on the environment. It gained that approval in February 2012. The DRI goes handin-hand with the needed development order and Planned Urban Development, with all three needing approval for the project to move forward. And there were three impediments to those plans: concerns whether Rhythms wells will draw down nearby private wells, neighborhood opposition and a less-than-willing neighbor in Bay County, which has the road with the most direct access to the property.WATERThe water issues, Henderson said, should be settled given the reviews by the West Florida Regional Planning Council (WFRPC), the Florida Department of Transportation, the affected Water Management District, the local School District and a number of other agencies. The Rhythm DRI was submitted to the WFRPC in Pensacola on Feb. 29, 2008, and received WFRPC approval on Oct. 27, 2011, after all agency comments had been satised with three review cycles at each level. Washington County Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz said there was also a change that had to be made to the countys comprehensive plan to identify Rhythm as a Planned Unit Development (PUD). A PUD is essentially another method of dening how a piece of property might be used and includes specic criteria. In Rhythms case, DeRuntz said, the PUD was rened to include a 100-foot buffering zone to adjoining land and protected land, except for when joined to agriculture/silviculture, which then would be 50 feet. And it includes language that concerns water sheds, identifying spring sheds, both primary and secondary. Since water is such a precious resource, this includes the protection of water sheds, DeRuntz said. Weve got to protect our water. There are some areas with more sensitive recharge areas, and weve got to be especially careful in this area because most of the county is on wells.ROADSHenderson said he believes Bay County was reluctant to grant access via County Line Road, which runs directly to the project from U.S. 231, because of ongoing friction between Bay and Washington counties over test wells Bay has drilled to the west. He said Rhythm offered to pave County Line Road up to and beyond county and state standards but was refused. Bay County ofcials said the reluctance had more to do with feasibility than anything: there is not enough right-of-way to pave County Line Road to county and state standards, and the county would have to go to court to take that needed right-of-way from private property owners, which wasnt a viable alternative. So with the clock ticking, Rhythm turned back to Washington County with a plan to spend millions of dollars paving roads between the development and Chipley, mostly with federal grant money and at no cost to the county. The project supporters said the worst case scenario is the county gets millions of dollar in road improvements, even if Rhythm doesnt sell the rst unit. You never know when somethings going to help or hurt you, but in this case it could do nothing but help us, said Washington County Engineer Cliff Knauer during a previous BOCC meeting. Before, this project didnt address Washington County roads, and it wouldnt have been a benet to us, but now it is. We rst addressed needing to do something about Buckhorn Boulevard in 1999, as well as that huge section in Quail Hallow. Knauer said it wouldnt be just for the project that paving those roads would benet. Its unbelievable how many people live down in that area and could benet from these roads being paved, not to mention those are school bus routes, and itd save the district on maintenance needing to be done to those buses that have to go down those roads every day, Knauer said. With almost every aspect of this project, theyve gone above and beyond what is required.NEIGHBORSWith water and roads addressed, J. Scott Henderson, of Henderson Planning Group LLC, representing Rhythm said, We feel that we have answered all the questions, done everything weve been asked to do and then some. Henderson conceded there is little left to do to appease those who live near the project. Trying to get the neighborhood comfortable has been a challenge, he said. Thats probably the biggest issue we have right now, and the neighborhood isnt going to be satised. But DeRuntz said he knew the concerns of the residents and in many of the aspects shared them, given the history of the area. Everyone is concerned with the economy, and everyone is living with the memory of Sunny Hills, DeRuntz said. That project was done before the land use requirements. It would have never own with the new standards. And key to this development, DeRuntz said, is all the conditions set forth in the agreements stay with the land and the development, not the property owner. Whatever is approved now has to be honored no matter who ends up developing the property. If something happens and the property changes hands, the new owner would have to follow the same guidelines to the letter or else they will have to start all over again, which is exactly where the developers were in 2008, DeRuntz said.DEVELOPMENT ORDERThe most pressing matter at the moment is the Development Order. Without it, nothing happens. It represents an agreement between the developer and the county about how things are going to be developed, said DeRuntz. Thats why there are phases the development must work within so that they have to meet the requirements on their part in order to continue their development. DeRuntz said this is the biggest development to come to Washington County. With something this big weve got to make sure they t into our comprehensive plan, DeRuntz said. The developer has met all the conditions. And one of the big conditions is the road paving will be completed before units are built for Phase I, preparing the area for heavier trafc. This includes creating a new road called New Buckhorn Boulevard, and paving Buckhorn Boulevard to Quail Hallow Boulevard, Quail Hallow Boulevard to Orange Hill Road and Orange Hill Road until it meets the latest in Florida Department of Transportation standards. Those parts of the road already paved will be repaved so the entire stretch meets the latest in FDOT standards. Funding for this project is through an already approved Tiger III grant from the Department of Transportation. The developers have agreed to make up any shortfalls between that money and the actual cost of paving. Special to Horizons BONIFAY The Washington County Tourism Development Council, Holmes County Development Commission and the Holmes County Tourism Development Council continue to support the Riverway South Project here. The RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project is a multi-county consortium to bring tourism into the rural counties of Florida, said Jim Brook, director of the Holmes County Economic Development Commission and a board member of the Riverway South project. In addition to spending $10,000 collectively in support of the rural tourism project as a part of a matching grant program to raise funds for tourism efforts, local tourism councils said they support the projects ultimate goal of promoting eco-tourism, specically. According to the RiverWay South website, the project is a public/ private partnership that encourages sustainable economic development through the preservation and promotion of the natural, cultural and historical resources of the Apalachicola and Choctawhatchee River basins. Much of rural tourism is what I would call eco -tourism, Brook said. Eco-tourism has a lot to offer Holmes and Washington counties by the way of protecting our rivers and streams. The project also includes Jackson County and was based on a similar program in Alabama, designed to bring visitors to the rural areas of the state to enjoy natural beauty and wildlife. Agri-tourism is also part of the draw for rural areas, Brook said, with visitors coming to visit farms from the cities to experience what agriculture is like rsthand. I would also consider farmers markets to be part of agritourism, he said. Agritourism has not been as successful as eco-tourism in bringing in visitors, Brook noted. Situated between the emerald green waters and white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the upland forest bluffs of Floridas highest vistas, RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee is the center of Northwest Floridas rich cultural, historical, maritime and nature-based region, a brochure for the program reads. Holmes Creek is one of the most pristine bodies of water in the state, Brook said, citing the creek as just one example of what makes this region a prime location for eco-tourism. I have been told that 55 streams feed into that creek. It is a local and state treasure. Holmes Creek provides one of the most diverse habitats and richest variety of sh and mollusks in the Choctawhatchee River basin, according to the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts website. And according to the website, dozens of springs do indeed feed into Holmes Creek, including Burn-out Spring, Cypress Springs and Becton Spring.

StoreHours :MondaythroughFriday9:00amto6:00pm By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Business owner and pastor Ryan Helms said his new medical supply store is about more than taking care of business. Its about taking care of the customer as well. Helms has helped set physicians up with needed equipment and has been involved with various pharmacy chains and business owners in Jacksonville, helping them start durable equipment companies of their own. We set up several of them, but I was really tired of traveling, and my kids were getting to where they needed me home more, so I thought many times that Bonifay doesnt really have a full comprehensive (medical supply) company, Helms said. Soon, the idea of the Medical Gallery was born. The store at 217 N. Waukesha St. in Bonifay, where the Movie Gallery once was, brings a higher standard of personal care. One thing we do differently at the Medical Gallery is replace (the standard mattress that comes with the bed) with a nice pressure mattresses so the patient gets the best quality mattress, Helms said. It costs them a little more to do it that way, he said, but in the long run, the patients wont get diabetic sores or cumulous ulcers. There are also special accommodations for women who have recently undergone a mastectomy. We have a shelf private mastectomy tting room where ladies can come in, and our staff is trained for mastectomy tting, Helms said. Its top shelf stuff with Victoria Secretquality bras and ttings. When a lady comes in who has had a mastectomy, were going to treat her like royalty. Were going to give her a free manicure and pedicure from Vos, and were going to give her a book thats just meant so much to friends of ours by Jerry Bridges called What to Do When Life Hurts. The store also offers a line of high quality wigs. I just really try to love on these ladies, encourage them and develop a friendship with them in the ministry, Helms said. Helms been married to his wife for 21 years, and they have three children. Hes served as pastor of New Zion Baptist Church for 13 years. Special to HorizonsThe Holmes County Development Commissions Strategic Plan for Economic Development is still on track. With the leadership of strategic planning consultant Dr. David L. Goetsch, the plan was devised specically for Holmes County last year and continues to move forward. Workshops to facilitate the effort were led by Goetsch. Attending the workshops were local elected ofcials, city and county management, board members, school board members, local business owners, clergy, non-prot organizational leaders and members of the public. The mission of the Holmes County Development Commission is to mobilize the human, physical, natural, and nancial resources of the County and focus them on retaining and creating jobs, improving the local economy, and enhancing the quality of life throughout the community, the mission statement devised for the county reads. Goetsch assisted the work groups with recognizing what economic development would be desired for the county, what the county has to offer and values the county wishes to sustain during the development. Ten strategies were then formed for implementation. The Holmes County Development Commission chose three of those goals with the hope of implementing the strategies within the next one to two years: 1. Continually enhance the quality of the labor force, and provide speakers from businesses for high school classes. Also to sponsor, in conjunction with local businesses, corporate training seminars for improving skills and attitudes of existing employees. 2. Institiute a comprehensive marketing program aimed at attracting new business and engage in piggy-back marketing with larger regional economic development. 3. Encourage local entrepreneurship for local business start-ups and work with Small Business Development Center of UWF to offer its Steps to Starting a New Business seminars on-site in Holmes County. The Development Commission has asked that the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce partner with them in the implementation of the Strategic Plan. Strategic Plan implementation discussions have taken place with board member Tim Wells as chairman. Wells has identied as his rst goal a need to gain community interest and involvement. Look for kick-off receptions and regular reports from the Development Commission on how you can become involved.By TeED EVerettERETT Executive D DirectorSpecial to Horizons The Washington County Chamber of Commerces No. 1 resource is its members. With that said, our goal is to help our business community in any way possible. If you have questions on permitting, licensing or need to nd resources for your business, call us. If we do not have the answer, we can usually nd it. There are some specic areas the Chamber is focusing on in 2014. The Chamber is in the process of revamping our Economic Development Council. One priority will be to try and give more assistance to our local businesses and see if there is an opportunity to help them grow and expand their current operations. The Chamber capitalizes on our legislative relationships at all levels state, federal and local to assist local businesses with issues affecting their business growth. Weve also sent legislative delegations to the state as well as hosted forums for local businesses to share concerns with their governmental representatives. The Chamber spends a good deal of time to bring relevant seminars and courses to our business and consumer community. Last summer, the Chamber partnered with the Washington County Emergency Operations Center, local utilities and others to host the Disaster Preparedness Expo. We also hosted a Business Credit Seminar in conjunction with eight area banks. This seminar discussed the core components of a credit score and offered many tips for improving a credit score. We plan on doing so again this year. We will also sponsored a principles of management seminar with Bay Solutions and co-hosted a small business assistance seminar that helped businesses nd nancial resources and learn how to create a business plan. The Chamber continues to partner with Northwest Florida Community Hospital, the Health Department and other local businesses to combat childhood obesity in Washington County through the We Can program. If you have a particular need which might be addressed in a seminar or workshop or other efforts, please let us know. The mission of the Chamber is to develop a strong and balanced economy while improving quality of life for all citizens. We invite our business and community to join us so that in Washington County might benet.

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 C4 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Additional broadband capacity is fast becoming available in the nine-county area of northwest Florida served by Opportunity Florida. As the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance (FRBA) becomes operational and commercial over the rst half of 2014, attention now turns to delivering service to the Opportunity Florida region. More than 90 percent of the construction work is completed on the northern middle-mile system which includes 56 towers for wireless, microwave broadband backhaul. At the end of January, ve sites were ready for last mile distribution, and two ber interconnection points were hot, making GigE service possible for the region. This broadband capacity is made possible through a National Telecommunications and Information Administration grant, which was awarded to the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance in August 2010. The $23.6 million grant is intended to provide additional capacity to unserved and underserved areas within the region served by FRBA. Owned jointly by Opportunity Florida in the north and Floridas Rural Heartland Economic Development Initiative in south-central Florida, FRBA is an open-access provider. That means the network is open to negotiate with any and all last mile providers seeking wholesale service through the FRBA network. So, what does this mean for the Opportunity Florida community and service area? First, the FRBA system provides lower cost, high capacity broadband to Community Anchor Institutions, commonly referred to as CAIs. CAIs include local government and public agencies including schools, libraries and hospitals. The NTIA grant was initiated with these un-served or underserved CAIs as the intended target. Most government and public services are in the process of moving to paperless transactions and recordkeeping and need the additional broadband and Internet-based capabilities. Another benet of the FRBA system will be capacity to schools and libraries, as both those institutions face online and digital mandates. Finally, more capacity to the area will bring a greater prospect of jobs and economic development. Broadband can be the great equalizer for business and industry as the world becomes completely digital and businesses are less dependent upon higher cost, traditional, metro areas in which to conduct commerce. Expanded broadband becomes the invisible highway infrastructure on which business now travels. The wireless FRBA system is seeking relationships with CAIs and last mile providers to deliver this additional capacity to the Opportunity Florida service area. Through June 2014, FRBA construction will be completed, and lastmile distribution points will be made ready to provide services to the community. Opportunity Florida is hopeful this new asset and the expanded capabilities it brings will provide a higher quality of life and economic benets to the nine-county area of Opportunity Florida. For more information about the Florida Rural Broadband Allliance, wireless, middle-mile, broadband system, visit weconnectorida.com or contact Opportunity Florida at 633-4118. Jim Brook is executive director of Opportunity Florida, the Northwest Florida Business Development Council and Co-managing partner of the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. Opportunity Florida serves the northwest Florida Rural Area of Opportunity (RACEC), of Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf, Franklin, Liberty, Gadsden and Wakulla counties. JIM BROOKSpecial to HorizonsFlorida rural broadband middle-mile nears completion STAFF REPORTAdvances are made in medical technology every day, but Washington and Holmes counties have managed to stay on top of the latest trends, with local hospitals offering modern technology with a personalized touch. Both Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay and Chipleys Northwest Florida Community Hospital have launched clinical afliation agreements with Gulf Coast Medical Centers telemedicine network. With its use of telemedicine technology that provides medical services and the exchange of medical information to remote areas Gulf Coast Medical Center is positioning itself as a regional hub for telemedicine specically, telestroke. Stroke, caused when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain ruptures or is blocked, is the number four cause of death and the leading cause of disability, according to the American Stroke Association. With Tele-Stroke technology, a neurologist interacts directly with the patient in order to assess their condition, NFCH CEO Janet Kinney said. Telemedicine allows the specialist to diagnose a stroke from a remotely from an Emergency Room with the patient and the clinical ER team at bedside. Bringing that technology home to Chipley will allow the patient to receive a diagnosis within minutes, determining treatment that can be life-changing or even life-saving, if provided within that magic window of time. For instance, a neurosurgeon at Gulf Coast Medical Center could immediately evaluate a potential stroke patient no matter the neurosurgeons location. The doctors are wheeled in on a robot that features two-way communication capabilities. This is where were headed, I believe. said JoAnn Baker, administrator at Doctors Memorial Hospital. Because its so difcult to get specialists to rural areas, we want to be sure our patients receive the same quality of care (as they would in a larger city). Were very excited to offer telemedicine to our patients and continue to stay on top of new technologies.

Leading statistics compiled by analytics company Alteryx showed overall growth in 2013, with more growth projected over the next ve years. Washington County, which currently has 24,979 residents, is expected to lead population growth in the tri-county area, expanding to 25,837 about 3.4 percent by 2019. Holmes County is expected to see growth of about 1.9 percent, rising from 19,889 to 20,272, while Jackson County is expected to gain a modest .8 percent over the next ve years, rising from 48,799 to 49,234. Conversely, the number of households is expected to increase in the area: Washington County households will increase about 4.5 percent from 8,879 to 9,285; Holmes, about 2.8 percent from 7,334 to 7,542; and Jackson, about 2 percent, from 16,987 to 17,340. The median age of persons in those households is also expected to rise slightly. Jackson County is projected to see the largest average age increase, from 40.7 years old to 41.3 (1.5 percent); Holmes Countys median age will increase from 41.5 to 42.1 (1.4 percent), and Washingtons will rise from about 40.8 to 41.3 (1.2 percent). Residents are expected to spend more over the next ve years, as well, likely as a result of an estimated growth in median household income. The average annual income of Washington County residents is projected to see an 18.8 percent jump, rising from $38,769 to $46,084. Jackson County is expected to see a 16 percent growth in this area, from $40,097 to $46,584, while Holmes County is close behind, rising 15 percent from $36,064 to $41,480. Increased income is expected to generate increased area revenues, with total consumer expenditures projected to rise by an average of 25 percent. Expenditures in Washington County will experience the highest jump, from about $373.6 million to $470.2 million; Holmes County will rise from about $291.7 million to $365 million; and Jackson County will see a slightly smaller jump, from about $697.5 million to about $866.8 million. Though Washington County remains among Northwest Floridas highest unemployment rate at 7.6 percent as of February, however, that number is considerably down from this time last year, according to Richard Williams of CareerSource Chipola. The latest unemployment numbers from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity show Washington Countys unemployment rate has decreased about 1.4 percent over the last year, Williams said. Holmes Countys unemployment is currently 5.6 percent, down from 6.6 percent at this time last year, and Jackson Countys unemployment rate is also down slightly, from 6.6 percent to 6.3 percent. Williams expects that trend to continue, slowly, but steadily. Despite some continued clouds, the overall forecast for (Washington, Holmes, Jackson) and surrounding counties appears to be much brighter than what weve experienced in the last few years.

SR 79 will be widened from I-10 in Holmes County to the Alabama state line, and SR 77 will be widened from one mile north of Wausau to just south of Clayton Road (County Road 276). The project is part of a ve-year work program outlining about $300 million in new infrastructure projects in the Panhandle that is intended to increase capacity on state roadways that connect to I-10. Holmes County will also soon see bridge replacements on Hicks Road over West Pittman Creek and Valee Road over Blue Creek. In addition to the road expansions, Holmes and Washington counties are looking to improve and expand existing infrastructure in preparation for new industry though grants from the Northwest Florida Water Management District. That funding part of about $10 million recently approved by the NWFWD will be used mainly for the planning and engineering of utility expansion south of Interstate 10. The city of Chipley received $440,000 in grants, which ofcials say will help develop a strategic plan to improve Washington Countys appeal to new industry. Our goal is to provide water, sewer and gas south of the interstate to help promote job growth out there, Dan Miner, Chipley city administrator, said. When the economy was rolling pretty good a few years ago, we had a lot of interest in that area (from potential industry), but (lack of infrastructure) was one of the snags, and we just didnt have the funding to make that happen.

When the economy was rolling pretty good a few years ago, we had a lot of interest in that area (from potential industry), but (lack of infrastructure) was one of the snags, and we just didnt have the funding to make that happen. Three Holmes County communities were also awarded NWFWD grants at the beginning of 2014. The town of Esto was awarded $149,690 to replace 4,850 feet of aging water line and reduce water loss. The town of Noma received $415,292 to replace 28,100 feet of their water distribution system and 25 re hydrants, as well as to provide additional valve and meter installation to identify deciencies in their water system. The city of Bonifay was awarded $268,900 to replace 4,590 feet of asbestos cement and a lead joint water main to reduce water loss and help protect the public and environment. This is very important to the future growth of our city, Mayor Lawrence Cloud said. Weve got to have our infrastructure in order in order to accommodate any future growth.
