Superintendent of Schools Eddie Dixon denied that such an offer was made and that the school board policy always had a cap of $1,500 per group for contributions. We did divide them into two groups so that we could contribute more and agreed on a $3,500 reimbursement, said Dixon. The $1,500 cap has always been in place. I dont know how you wouldve heard otherwise. Smith requested a copy of the policy where the $1,500 cap was indicated and Dixon agreed to provide a copy.

LocalWednesday, June 11, 2014who cant be here today. Board approved of addressing the issue of placing the $1,500 cap in standard policy at the next workshop. Board member Debbie Kolmetz questioned why the Holmes County District seemed to be in the red, referring to the debt of the district. Larry Hawkins, District Financial Ofcer, explained that ever since funding was cut in 2008 the District has been struggling out of debt, which was greatly helped with the assistance of the stimulus money implemented by Obama in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Currently the District is $1.5 million in the red, however Hawkins said that is a steady decline since 2008. He also added that there will be an appearance of a massive uctuation in funds every pay period as the payroll is being distributed. Kolmetz asked the Board why she was unable to be placed on the agenda even after following the requirements. She referred to the meeting on May 6 where the Board approved of changing the format of the agenda to include unnished and new business. She also referred to the meeting on May 21 where she wanted to be put on the agenda to adopt the new policy and to discuss videotaping school board meetings. Dixon said he didnt think that is how procedure dictated and the Board approved to allow School Board Attorney Lucas Taylor to research the matter for the proper procedure in this matter. Chair Rusty Williams informed everyone Commander White, long time educator and former superintendent, had recently passed away and requested prayer for his family. Kolmetz informed the Board she was in contact with the Florida School Board Association about of class on school board matters and the Board agreed that they would be interested in discussing it further at the next workshop. Kolmetz informed the Board she was at the Ponce de Leon High School graduation and the lights in the parking lot was still out, leaving the parking lot dark. Dixon explained the wiring was very old and after progress was made, lightening stuck, damaging progress made. He said they are reecting on various ways of repair, including newer lights, however all avenues are expensive. Board approved 20142015 Agreement with Florida Virtual Blended Learning Community/Virtual Learning Lab; Overnight/out of state trips; and personnel recommendations. Board member Shirley Owens said she had enjoyed this years dramas, plays, banquets and functions, saying they were the icing on the cake. She also wanted to bid fair well to all the educators retiring this year, commending them on their many years of commitment and dedication to education. Weve seen a couple of graduations and have a few more to go, said Dixon. The most honorable thing is having the opportunity to take part in seeing our children on to the next level of their lives. The next meeting of the Holmes County District School Board is set for 6 p.m. on June 24.

Financing Arranged (WAC) A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser TRIP from page A1 ROAD from page A1ity. These upgrades considered are chip seal, which is a pavement surface treatment that combines one or more layers of asphalt with one or more layers of aggregate. County Engineer Whitney Nelson from Melvin Engineering informed the Board that Jackson County used chip seal on 32 miles of road and during the last rain disaster those 32 miles required no maintenance. Nelson also informed the Board that chip seal roads also had the availability for Small Community Outreach Program (SCOP) and Small County Rural Assistance Program (SCRAP). One option considered is an improvement project that allows for all the work to fall under one estimate, creating a cap, which is a limited, one-time amount in that estimated amount, leaving the projects open for the county to be accountable to repair and improve the roads and the money would be given to the County in advance. The down side being Hyatt informed the Board the deadline for applying for the grant has passed. The Board pressed for reconsideration, with County Attorney Jeff Goodman at the forefront, informing the representatives that during the nine-month limitation another disaster occurred and impeded the process. Another option was an Alternate Program, which has a 12 month limitation, similar to the previous improvement project with a cost estimation and cap only without the consolidation of projects, which gives more freedom for the County to do work as they deem necessary. The drawback is no payment up front and a 10 percent penalty if any discrepancies are found in the paper work. Anything involving a reimbursement is obligating us as a small, rural county to acquire a revolving loan because they have to front the money for repairs and improvements, said Goodman. Were sick of continually pouring down dirt and rock and were sick of polluting our waterways with the run-off. Wed love to be your federal guinea pig. Goodmans reference to being a federal guinea pig steams from the fact that this is a new program and that they would be the rst county to apply for the program. Because both are new programs County Engineer Cliff Knauer from Preble Rish said that is the reason for the majority of the delays in repairing of the roads, explaining that set requirements werent established until December. He added that there were penalties that if a road was rejected the road would never be eligible for FEMA funds in the future. A large number of roads were rejected because the costs could not exceed the cost per feet to replace dirt on regular dirt roads and the roads in need of low water crossing and riprap were rejected because they exceeded that standard placed by FEMA. Johnson apologized for the haphazardness of the new project, assuring Knauer that those issues have been resolved and promised to get word back to Goodman as soon as he received approval or denial to the countys request. There are four options, which are Improved Projects, Section 406 Mitigation, Alternate Projects and Alternative Procedures under the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act, said Hyatt. FEMA is currently evaluating whether the Alternative Procedures options may still be available to the county as there is a 9 month deadline from the disaster declaration to accept FEMAs estimates of repairs. agreed to have a new ordinance written up for the Council to review at the next meeting dealing with residents and landscapers who leave their grass clippings, leaves and other yard debris in the street and in the ditches causing drainage issues. Taylor added that he would also send a letter to all landscapers informing them that an ordinance will be written, passed and enforced by nes for all those in violation.Council reviewed the Holmes County Interlocal agreement. Taylor informed the Council that it had to do with gas taxes and the 10 percent that the city received from it. He said it was an agreement they already had with the County, however it was due to expire and from his brief review of the two there was no variation. He said he would have it fully reviewed and ready to be discussed by the next meeting.Council approved to donate $400 to the 11th Annual Panhandle Patriotic Celebration to be held by the Holmes Baptist Association on June 29 at the Bonifay Recreation Field, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and reworks beginning at 9 p.m. The event is free for all to attend. The Panhandle Patriotic Celebration is a really good thing for this city, said Mayor Lawrence Cloud. Next to the Rodeo I dont know of anything else that brings in so many people to our city for one celebration. The next meeting of the Bonifay City Council will be at 6 p.m. on June 23. VEHICLE from page A1Staff ReportBONIFAY The Bonifay Police Department reports a recent rash of phone scams, what makes them different this time is that the scammers are using local numbers. According to the Bonifay Police Department, over the past few days, several reports have been led with the Bonifay Police Department concerning a phone scam being received from local phone numbers. These kinds of calls generally begin with recorded messages that include statements like: There are no problems currently with your account, however it is urgent that you contact us concerning your eligibility for lowering your interest rates to as little as 6 point 9 per cent. The automated message invariably does not include the name of the company, but may claim to be with Card Services or Card Holder Services. After the initial recorded message, consumers must dial another number to be connected to a live person. The live operator usually starts the sales pitch by asking for the consumers credit card number and whether the consumer is interested in lowering their interest rates. The negotiation undertaken by these companies can be as simple as calling the customer service number listed on the back of the consumers credit card and asking a customer service representative to lower the interest rate. The public needs to know that thieves choose numbers they want to appear on Caller ID, said Police Chief Chris Wells. Technology available for purchase on the Internet allows crooks to use a fake caller ID to make bogus phone calls look like they are coming from a legitimate and trustworthy source to gain access to a victims valuable personal information. They can seem legitimate because the telephone number of the local person or entity shows up on the caller ID. Most of the time, they are originating from overseas in places like Nigeria. Bonifay Police Department urges to never give personal information to someone who calls. Con artists will lie, cheat, steal, and make up plausible stories to convince you to divulge sensitive information, said Wells. The callers are often professional criminals who are skillfully able to get personal information before the victim has time to properly assess the situation. Contact your bank and the Credit Bureau immediately if you fall victim to this or any similar scam.Bonifay Police Department warns residents of recent phone scams

Jacqueline Jackie Evanne Prime Burnett Marshall, or as a called her, Mema, was a woman of astonishing beauty, both inside and out. With everything she did, my grandmother poured her heart and soul into it. More so is that she wanted to show with everything that she did, not her love, but Gods love above all else. To me, she was even more beautiful than Marilyn Monroe and kinder than Mother Teresa. She passed away in 2011, and Ive only now managed to cross the milestone of being able to clean out some of her stuff, but only with the help of my mother. Ive seen that she was a dancer, ballet and tap dancing. When I saw her name as the Swan Princess, a member of the Rainbow Sunshine Tappers and many other roles all in the same production, I knew that was a re ection of her strong will and tireless enthusiasm. The boxes were also lled with sewing projects, all by hand, and you could tell that she was practicing something she loved with the colorful and whimsical designs of dancing animals and children following along. She also kept every photo and present everyone ever gave her, and you could tell she cherished every one of them with the level of care used to store them. The tragedy behind all this is that she didnt know she was beautiful. She was always going on diets and trying new things to improve something that was so brilliant. To me, it was like painting a diamond. I know Im biased because to me she was everything, but I know everyone else saw it, too. The same goes for my mother. Shes always so optimistic and often gets herself into trouble by her tireless and sel ess need to help others, even when she doesnt have that need for herself. Shes a morning person, waking before the dawn so she can enjoy the sky changing colors. She nds beauty in the simple, and when something is drab, she will color it herself. She was known in Holmes County High School for her spontaneous personality and clothing. She would doodle designs all over her jeans, shed play in the mud and she has never met a stranger. She was setting trends before anyone knew what trends were. She marched to the beat of her own drum, and even if everyone didnt like the beat, they may have still found their toes tapping to it. My mother is brilliant, shining like the sunrise, birds chirping and all, which is why my grandmother nicknamed her Rebird, meaning happy bird. My mother doesnt know shes beautiful, either. I thought of how sad it is that they dont know theyre beautiful and know that there are many more women who might feel the same way. I know there must be daughters out there who are reading this and are thinking of their mothers or family members or friends who are thinking the same. Whats funny about this is that the women reading this may be thinking of everyone but themselves. With worries and doubts aside, can you say you think youre beautiful? I cant say that Im not beautiful because a piece of my grandmother and mother live on in me, and when I smile I want people to see even the slightest bit of them in it. I know some beautiful women I work with every day, beautiful women I meet every day during work and beautiful women throughout the community. Its their hearts, shining in brilliant colors in all they say and do. You are beautiful, and in time, I hope you, too, will see that at least a little bit more and more. Maya Angelou put it best in her poem Phenomenal Woman: I say, Its the re in my eyes, And the ash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I am a woman Phenomenally. Thank you for your time. See you next week. OPINION www.bonifaynow.comWednesday, June 11, 2014 APage 4SectionThe views expressed here are not necessarily those of this paper or Halifax Media Group.

This spirited, energetic lady was celebrating her 80th birthday as a trusted nurse at DMH. Born March 29, 1934, to John and Mittie (Jenkins) Kolmetz on Vernon Star Route, Bertha is the youngest of 13 children born in her blended family. Graduating in 1952 from Vernon High School, she has remained in the Washington County area most of her life. Her home is on land homesteaded by her grandfather, Frederick Nicholas Kolmetz, in the mid-1800s. Her marriage to the late R.J. Padgett produced three sons and one daughter. At one time, the whole family was a part of Doctors Memorial Hospital staff. Daughter Patty Seal is an operating room nurse. Patty was working at Bay Medical and was by our side when our Dad, Hugh Wells, died. Son Rick Padgett worked for a time in dietary at DMH, and his brother Scott has a mobile nuclear medicine unit that services Doctors Memorial weekly. Bertha is con dent she will be well taken care of in her old age, as each of her children is married to a nurse. Like so many of my generation did, Bert started her family, and after they were old enough to require less care, she returned to school. She graduated from Chipola Jr. College with her LPN certi cation in 1968 and worked at Jackson Hospital in Marianna until she returned to school for her registered nurse degree. She earned that while working as an LPN in Mercy Hospital in Champaign, Ill., in 1981. After that, she returned home to Washington County and worked at Gulf Coast Hospital in Panama City until coming to Doctors Memorial in Bonifay 14 years ago. I have previously written about my earliest encounter with Bertha Kolmetz, when I told about my rst ride on the Millers Ferry. I had ridden home in a two-mule wagon with my Dads cousins, the Bryant children, who lived in the same community as the Kolmetz family. They took me to Prayer Meeting on Wednesday night. This was a new experience for me, as Primitive Baptists didnt have prayer meetings. I worried that they might call on me to pray. I must have been about 8. Bertha and her brother Delbert were a few years younger, and they sang in church that night, OH be careful little hands, what you do. For the father up above who is looking down in love, OH be careful little hands what you do. I probably wouldnt have refused to join them in singing, though, if I had known the song. I later knew Bertha and Delbert at Vernon School. Bertha and her family still love singing. She also loves to travel, and she loves her home and gardening. Living near the Millers Ferry/Shell Landing area, she also loves shing. But most of all, she loves her work as a nurse. Her favorite part of nursing was when she worked labor and delivery in the past. Now she is working PRN, which means when someone cant come in, Bert is called. Her daughter says she comes alive when she gets that call. She said, My mother will be moping about the house, but when she gets the call to come to work, she is like the Clydesdale horses. She prances about the house; she gets that uniform on; she puts on her makeup; she grabs her walking shoes, and shes ready to go. Bertha (Bert) Kolmetz Padgett is just another of the dedicated employees at Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay. The words to a gospel song sum up the life of Bertha Padgett and about her hope for the future. She has experienced all of the adversities of life as the song says, Some through the re, some through the ood, some through great sorrow, but all through the blood. Twice her home burned, and in 1994, the family experienced the ooding of the Choctawhatchee River and Holmes Creek. Her great sorrow was the death of her youngest son in an accident at age 18 and the death of her youngest grandson with cancer at age 28. But through it all, she is con dent of the blood of Jesus and His ability to carry us through all these things. She is a shining example of the optimism her faith brings. Immigrants not entitled to bene tsDear Editor, I write this letter about my concern for the double standard principle we see going on in this country. The president and the Democrats seem to not be concerned about that we have two citizens who are in jail in Mexico for crossing the border illegally. The former military gentleman crossed their border by mistake, with guns in his truck, which he kept in his truck all the time with all other things he owned, as per his statement and a friend. The truck driver just made a wrong turn, as per the media. The military gentleman has been put in chains and his clothes taken off. It has not been stated what has been done to the truck driver, as of May 31. There has not been any effort by President Obama and his party to get these two out. It is stated that crossing the border by mistake, is a common matter. Yet the president and the Democratic Party are demanding we give those citizens from Mexico citizenship, etc., even though they did not cross our border by mistake, but illegally and with preplanned actions. What do we do with them? We see that they get jobs, jobs out citizens need and want; we give them housing; we provide them with food and medical care; and we do not strip them of their clothing but provide any needed. I do not recommend that they be put in jail, but taken and loaded onto a truck or put in buses and returned to Mexico, and give them a rm warning that if they come again, they will be put in prison and will be required to work without pay. If farmers need them, let the farmer pay for their labor by paying the government at least $7 to $10 an hour for at least six to 12 months. If they bring their children, let them serve extra for the cost of taking care of them during their respective time in prison. Mexico, it seems, has strict border polices. We should have the same and enforce them. Do not use them for political reasons. Editor, I am thankful that the citizens of America spoke out against the way out ex-military personnel have been treated. I pray they will wake up and speak out about this immigration matter. Protect the jobs in our country. Protect our nancial status in this country with stopping the giveaway to illegal border violators. Please do not just talk about it, take action and speak out; write or call your Congress personnel, Senate and House. Write or call the president. This needs to be done by all Democrats, Republicans, Independents or whoever. This border protection is not just directed toward the Mexicans, but to anyone who comes into this country illegally. I close by asking the senior citizens, now drawing their Government Bene t Fund dollars, originally known as Social Security Fund, just how much money from the funds you and your employer paid in and those working now are paying in, is being used to support these illegal individuals, jailed or being let run free with all the bene ts? Call for these two American citizens, who entered Mexico by mistake, to be released and for those individuals who have crossed our border illegally and with premeditated plane to be returned home. Thank you, editor. I just hope more who say they are concerned would call or write you. I believe the majority feel as I do, based upon the conversations with me.The Rev.

The Gulf Coast VA in cludes the Panama City Outpatient Clinic at the Navy base in Panama City Beach, as well as centers in Pensacola; Eglin Air Force Base; Mobile, Ala.; and Biloxi, Miss. All but the Panama City Beach facility were agged. Representatives of the Gulf Coast VA system de clined to comment on the ndings Monday, saying they would release addi tional information Tuesday. The audit revealed 1,373 local veterans enrolled and requested appoint ments but were never seen through the Gulf Coast system. That number is three times higher than any oth er VA system in the same geographic network, which includes the Florida Panhandle, Mississippi, Loui siana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and parts of Texas. The average wait time for a new patient in the Gulf Coast system was 48.6 days, while those waiting to see a specialty care doctor were seen in about 46 days. New mental health patients had an average wait time of just over 37 days. Established patients waited an average of just over four days to be seen by a primary care physician and more than six days for a specialty care physician. Both of those wait times were among the longest in the network. Mental health patients who are already in the sys tem waited an average of two days, which compared more favorably. The audit also com pared patient wait times for VA systems across the nation. The audit did not break down the information into individual facilities. A spokesperson for the Gulf Coast VA said they would be prepared to share those numbers Tuesday. Audit ags area VA clinics TATALLAAHAASSEEEE (AP) Flor ida students living in the country illegally will be al lowed to qualify for in-state college tuition rates under a bill signed into law Monday by Gov. Rick Scott. Scott signed the bill pri vately, but touted the sign ing at a campaign event scheduled later in the day in Fort Myers. The new law offers instate college tuition rates to undocumented students who had attended a Florida school for at least three years before graduation. The current in-state rate is one-quarter of what out-ofstate students and those in the country illegally pay. Signing this historic legislation today will keep tuition low, and allow all stu dents who grew up in Flori da to have the same access to affordable higher educa tion, Scott said. With this legislation, higher educa tion became more afford able and more accessible to all Floridians. The measure also re stricts the ability of Florida universities to raise tuition above the rate set each year by legislators. It repeals a law that allowed universities to raise tuition up to 15 per cent a year. Instead it allows two schools the Univer sity of Florida and Florida State University to raise tuition up to 6 percent with out approval by the Florida Legislature. When he campaigned as governor four years ago, Scott vowed to push tougher anti-immigration measures. He also voiced opposition to offering the in-state tuition rate to students living in the country illegally. But the Republican gov ernor changed his stance during a year when His panic voters might prove to be crucial during a tough reelection ght. Scott also plans to re mind voters that former Gov. Charlie Crist, who is now running as a Democrat, approved the changes that let universities raise tuition above the rates set annually by legislators. The in-state college tu ition bill had been consid ered several times before during the past decade and had support from Republi cans such as then-Gov. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio when he was in the Legislature. But it divided the Republi cans and never passed. This year, the proposal again drew sharp opposi tion from some Republi cans. During oor debate, several GOP state senators questioned the potential cost almost $50 million when fully implemented and said the state should not reward people who had broken the law by com ing, or living, in the United States illegally. I know it feels good giv ing benets away, said Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach said in early May. We are giving so many benets to non-citizens. ... Does it matter even be ing an American citizen anymore? The measure ultimately was passed because of the strong pushing by Scott and other top Republican lead ers such as House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel.

LocalA6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, June 11, 2014FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) More than 8,500 new patients are still waiting for initial medical appointments at six VA hospitals and clinics throughout Florida 90 days or more after requesting them, with the longest wait list at the Gainesville facility, according to an audit released Monday by the Veterans Affairs Department. Additionally, more than 5,000 who enrolled at Florida VA facilities over the past 10 years have never had appointments. The audit of 731 VA hospitals and outpatient clinics around the U.S. found that a complicated appointment process created confusion among scheduling clerks and supervisors. A 14-day goal for seeing rst-time patients was unattainable given the growing demand among veterans for health care and poor planning, the audit said. The VA has abandoned that goal. The audit noted 13 percent of VA schedulers reported supervisors telling them to falsify appointment dates to make waiting times appear shorter. The massive data release comes amid growing nationwide concerns with veterans care. Last month, long wait times and secret waiting lists ultimately prompted the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki. The issue has also become a political thorn for the Obama administration during mid-term elections, which Republicans have seized on. Florida ofcials led a lawsuit last week after making unannounced visits to VA hospitals in in West Palm Beach, Bay Pines, Miami, Lake City, Gainesville and Tampa in April and May to investigate allegations of substandard care. VA ofcials blocked them each time. In letters to Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Elizabeth Dudek, secretary of the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, VA ofcials said federal facilities arent subject to state laws. The Gainesville VA hospital had 4,000 new patients who were unable to get an appointment 90 days after requesting one. More than 3,000 who enrolled at that facility in the past 10 years never received appointments. The Bay Pines facility in St. Petersburg was next in the state with 712 new patients unable to get appointments 90 days or more after requesting one. Almost 1,200 who have enrolled in the facility in the past 10 years still not had an appointment, the audit found. A new patient had to wait an average of 63 days to see a specialist in Tampa and an average of 48 days in Miami and Gainesville to see a primary care doctor, according to the audit. The Sunshine State is home to 1.6 million veterans and boasts the largest population of World War II veterans in the nation, according to the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs. State ofcials said they led the lawsuit after receiving numerous complaints with references to long wait times, lack of attention, unsanitary conditions and improper medical care. In a letter to the governor, employees at the West Palm facility said four patients fell between 2013 and 2014, causing serious injury and, in one case, death. Another patient missed a chemotherapy treatment because a chemo nurse wasnt scheduled. Another veteran in his 50s was having a pacemaker replaced when employees allege he went into cardiac arrest because the anesthesiologist used the wrong size needle. That patient developed fasciitis and underwent an emergency surgery to save his arm, but he subsequently died, according to the letter signed by concerned employees. A copy of the letter was included in the lawsuit led by state ofcials. Meanwhile, federal ofcials have taken several steps to address the scandal, including hiring freezes at administrative ofces. The agency also plans to use temporary stafng measures, including mobile medical units, to accelerate care for veterans on wait lists. About 37 percent of the U.S. sites visited by the feds will require further review based on responses from front-line staff, including facilities in Gainesville, Bay Pines, Lake City and Pensacola.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A9Wednesday, June 11, 2014 been just trial and error. I really encourage you to go beyond the recipes. Its all about nding things you want to eat again, Wolf said. So much of what you are eating already is raw salads and fruits. Just substitute pasta. One thing can be cut out, replaced. Raw food isnt about telling you not to eat things, but trying to be healthy. Its about cleaning up our diet. Maybe replace salt with Himalayan or sea salt. Raw food is about trying to get nutrients into your body. She said when her husband, who already had been eating organic for years, cut out grains and sugar, he lost his basketball and now has a at stomach. Aspects of a raw food meal or diet can be used to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into a familys healthy eating plan. I want people to think it looks simple. I try to keep it very simple, Wolf added. Its a great way to get kids to eat healthier. She started by cutting the ends off the zucchini squash, putting each in the small spiralizer and turning the handle to transform the squash into spirals. Its very easy to do, or use a mandolin and you can make lasagna with it by layering the zucchini, Wolf said. For those who are apprehensive about a cold veggie pasta, Boil the water and warm it up for a minute, then let the noodle heat the sauce. Wolf has gone more extreme in her kitchen, taking out her oven and stove three years ago (and you wont nd a microwave either), but she knows thats not for everyone. I always try to encourage raw and maybe sh or a warm side. You have to feed your family, she said. The rest could be raw or slightly cooked. I still use a wok and George Foreman Grill when I do things like bok choy. Just try not to overcook things. When we do, we are romancing the nutrients right out of it. For the Alfredo sauce, Wolf put raw organic cashews in a Cuisinart food processor. Raw means no roasting or salting, she explained. You could use a powerful blender, a Blendtec or Vitamix. Wolf also showed the class how to improvise, substituting an apple and pear for celery. You are just trying to get some texture, she said. Just chop and put it in the Cuisinart. The celery gives a natural salt, so (because we arent using celery) that means we will be adding salt. The pear is a little rougher and has just enough sweetness for the cream. Instead of thyme, she added a tablespoon of fresh rosemary, doubled the amount of garlic tasting as she went and a teaspoon of eur de sel, a hand-harvested sea salt. Always taste as you go, she said. When you get the sauces made, let them sit about 10 minutes before serving for richer avors. This could be made a couple of days ahead of time. If you are having a party, it ends up better the next day. If you are not serving immediately, the sauce and veggie noodles should be stored in separate containers for up to two days. The squash will release water and should be drained before mixing with the sauce. The simplicity of sauce is just beautiful. Its so simple to do and no cooking perfect for lunches because it only gets better with time, Wolf said. For the angel-hair squash noodles, she used yellow squash, but you also could use zucchini squash. Or mix both together, said Wolf, who had presoaked the sun-dried tomatoes for her Sun-dried Tomato Marinara. In place of dates, I am using a little (raw) honey, just bringing out sweetness. Maybe use a teaspoon of pureed dates. The fresh basil and citrus avors of the marinara sauce were a nice contrast to the creamy garlic and slightly sweet Alfredo sauce on the plate. Wolfs original Quick Black Pepper Southern Side Salad topping was spooned over a fresh spring mix for a deliciously salty salad lled with avor and texture. The salad is very simple, Wolf said. And the amino acids are a great substitute to soy. The topping includes Vidalia onions, white button mushrooms, fresh cut corn off the cob, honey, fresh black pepper and Bragg Liquid Aminos made from soybeans and puri ed water. Bragg, a non-GMO project veri ed and glutenfree seasoning, is available from health food stores and some supermarkets. I also have done (raw) green beans with Bragg, pumpkin seeds and onion and marinate it about 1/3 cup Bragg to 2/3 extra virgin olive oil in a plastic container, keeps three or four days, she said. Wolf made the recipes look easy. I want you to go home and think, I can do that, she said, and I did. I used a spiral vegetable cutter, a Veggetti, to make the noodles for the Fettuccine Squash Noodles in Alfredo Sauce recipe, which I cut in half. I put the other serving of noodles in a container in the refrigerator. Although I used celery for the sauce, I added sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper for more avor. I ended up using about cup of water and later regretted not using more garlic than in the recipe. I blanched the noodles in boiling water, but realized I preferred the raw texture. Next time, I will let the zucchini come to room temperature before spiralizing, as Wolf had suggested. Somethins Cookin, the Panama City pick-up location for Off the Vine (OfftheVine.org), carries spiralizers, as well as some organic teas and seasonings and Certi ed Kosher/Certi ed Organic Flour Power Bread from German Bread Haus in Fort Lauderdale. We get the bread delivered fresh every Wednesday. A lot of my organic pick-up people who buy boxes get that, Holland said.Fettuccine Squash Noodles in Alfredo SauceNoodles: 2 large zucchini squash Sauce: Juice of 1 lemon, about 3 tablespoons plus to taste 2 cups cashews 1/8 yellow onion, about 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons fresh thyme 2 cloves garlic 2-3 stalks celery (or apple/ pear no peel), coarsely chopped cup water, as needed Use a spiralizer or mandolin to create noodles.

PAWS & CLAWS Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Page 10www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection By TONY SIMMONS747-5080 | @PCTonyS tsimmons@pcnh.com Hurricane season is upon us, and while the experts expect a slow summer for the super storms, its still a good idea to prepare for the worst. As recent torrential rainfall and localized ooding has shown us, sometimes the worst storms are the ones that didnt give you days to prepare. That means making plans to take care of all the members of your household including the four-legged ones. Some of the things you can do to prep for the unexpected, such as assembling an animal emergency supply kit and developing a pet care buddy system, are the same for any emergency, according to the experts at Ready.gov and the Humane Society of Bay County. Whether you decide to stay put in an emergency or evacuate to a safer location, you will need to make plans in advance for your pets. Keep in mind that whats best for you typically is whats best for your animals. We always advise people to have a plan so that if an evacuation is ordered they have a better place to go than a shelter, said Bob Pearce, executive director of the Central Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross, speaking to The News Herald. If you could make arrangements to visit a relative or go someplace further away from the coast, you are going to be a lot more comfortable that way. You pets will be more comfortable too. If you plan to go to a public shelter, its important to understand that animals might not be allowed inside. Plan in advance for shelter alternatives that will work for both you and your pets; consider loved ones or friends outside of the immediate area who would be willing to host you and your pets in an emergency. Although all Bay County Emergency Shelters are pet friendly, not all pets are welcome, according to information provided by the Humane Society. Birds and reptiles are not permitted in the shelters, for instance. If of cials order an evacuation and open a shelter, the rst one opened in Bay County will be the special needs shelter at Bozeman High School, 13410 State 77, just north of Lake Merial. Generally, this shelter will be opened 72 hours in advance of a projected storm to allow ample time for seniors or others with special medical needs to arrive. Because of health concerns, the Department of Health has mandated that any animals brought to this special needs shelter must be housed in a building separate from the human population. Once admitted, no further contact between the owner and their animal can take place until they depart, in order to reduce the potential that the owner might bring pet dander or other contaminates into the main facility. Personnel from Bay County Animal Services will be available to water, feed, walk the animals and do whatever necessary to make them comfortable. Any time theres any type of emergency, we have to be there at the shelters, said Paula Hunter of Bay County Animal Services. We all respond to work. If Bozeman lls to capacity, other shelters will open and pet owners will be allowed to care for their own pets at those locations. If you cant go to a relative or friends home outside the evacuation zone, and youd rather not stay at a public shelter, you might opt to nd a pet-friendly hotel instead. You should contact hotels ahead of any disaster to check policies on accepting pets, and ask if no pet policies could be waived in an emergency. (Visit PetsWelcome.com online to nd pet-friendly hotels and motels.) You should never leave a pet behind if you must evacuate; if its too dangerous for you to stay, then its too dangerous for your pet. A house pet is unlikely to survive a disaster if left on its own. However, in some cases it might be impossible to accommodate your pet in the event of an evacuation. If that happens, the experts suggest the following: Con ne the pet to a safe area inside the house. Never leave a pet chained outside. Instead, leave them loose inside the home with food and water. Place a notice outside in a visible area to advise anyone checking the home what pets are in the house; include a phone number where you or a contact can be reached. Whether you are away from home for a day or a week, you will need essential supplies. Keep items in an accessible place and store them in sturdy containers that can be carried easily, such as duf e bags or covered plastic containers. Your pet disaster supplies kit should include: Medications, medical records and shot records.RIDING OUT THE STORM Disaster plan should account for pets FILE PHOTOS | The News Herald

andupto(withqualifyingtrade-in) SPORTs S www.bonifaynow.comWednesday, June 11, 2014 APage 11Section By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com Perhaps the third time will be the charm for Karsten Whitson. The Chipley native and Florida Ga tors righthanded pitcher was selected by Boston in the 11th round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Saturday. He was the highest-drafted player with area ties during the third and nal day of the event. It also marked the third time he was chosen in the draft.Whitson went ninth overall to San Diego in 2010 out of Chipley only to turn down more than $2 million to pitch for Florida. He missed 2013 with a shoulder injury and was taken in the 37th round by Washington. The latest selection is likely his last, but he has the option to return to Florida with a redshirt year of eligibility.He appeared in 14 games with nine starts for Florida this season. The former 15thranked prep prospect was 1-1 with 21 strikeouts and 23 walks in 37 1/3 innings for the Gators. When healthy he can be a dominant pitcher, as evi denced by his 8-1 record and 92 strikeouts as a freshman.Whitson was one of eight area prospects chosen Satur day. Four from Chipola Ian Rice, Palmer Betts, Tucker Simpson and Taylor Lewis and two from Gulf Coast, Christian Williams and Max Bartlett, also were drafted. And David Trexler capped his college career with a selection. Trexler was the next to go in the 17th round to the Chicago White Sox. The right-handed pitcher nished his senior season at North Florida with six wins and he also pitched collegiately at Gulf Coast and Florida State while competing for Bay and Mosley in high school. Rice, a catcher, was next to Boston in the 21st round. The nal three Indians draft ed are pitchers, with Betts, taken by Pittsburgh in the 36th round, Simpson drafted by Baltimore in the 39th, and Lewis, a Florida signee, go ing to Colorado in the 40th and nal round.Williams, who was an allstate rst-teamer at designat ed hitter and also played rst base, was chosen by Miami in the 28th round. The round also had marquee picks of Mariano Rivera, the son of the New York Yankees great, and Johnny Manziel, who also was selected in the rst round of the National Football League Draft. Bartlett, a shortstop, rounded out GCs picks in the 36th round to Cleveland.Whitson taken in 11th roundAPChipley native Karsten Whitson was drafted by the Boston Red Sox. MLB DRAFT A chance to get on the busKevin Tolar had more bus rides in the minor leagues than Crash Davis. He ate more bad food on the road than your average turkey buzzard. All right already. Enough with the writer B.S. Tolar is a graduate of Mosley High School and the subject of a ve-part series that will run this week and chronicle his 19-year professional baseball career as a left-handed pitcher. It is going to be about Tolar, and not about metaphors and adverbs seeking the sports writing hall of fame, should there be one. More specically, a large part of the series is going to focus on minor league baseball, as well as Winter Ball that Tolar experienced in four countries. Kevin Tolar made it to the major leagues, albeit brief stints with Detroit in 2000 and 2001 and Boston in 2003. He knows exponentially more about the struggle to get there, however, having pitched at every level in the professional structure. That begins with the Rookie leagues and goes up the ladder to Lower Class A, Higher Class A, Double-A and Triple-A. In Tolars case, it also included a season with an independent league team in addition to the aforementioned winter stops in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Venezuela and Taiwan. It was a career he extended while in his 30s because he was tantalizingly close to breaking through on the big-league level. Knocking on the door as he put it. He became a xture in spring training major league camps for the better part of a decade, and is a walking and breathing advertisement for how one key at-bat can shape a professional career. Or one untimely injury.It is a series that underscores the presumption right place at the right time, and indicates the consequences of not succeeding when it is your moment.It often has been said and written that baseball is a game of failure. That even the most prolic hitters fail seven times out of 10. Tolars pro career was dened more by the struggle to not only reach the pinnacle of the game, but to stay there. The frustrations of almost two decades suggest that in his case it wasnt merely a journey, but almost a mission.That it took place almost completely under the radar of national media scrutiny heightens its message in this section. Tolar was considerate enough to open a window into a place most of us never have been.Its all but impossible to gauge how many clubhouses he walked in and out of during his nomadic career, but he remains an adherent to its code. Therefore his series wont be a tell-all about what he heard and saw. No one gets thrown under the bus, a term he returned to more than once.But hopefully, at its best, A Life in Baseball might put some of us on that bus with Kevin Tolar, and the hundreds of teenagers every summer who are fortunate enough to sign a professional contract and dream the dream of the ultimate ascension. It starts Tuesday. Sports BeatPat McCannExecutive Sports Editorpmccann@pcnh.comIf you are new to Florida you might be experiencing a biting sensation lately you never ran into in other parts of the United States. Its a blood sucker that can really put a hurt on certain people. One of my northern friends who has never seen one of these insects is really having a hard time coping. He has a garage where he does most of his outdoor work such as melting and pouring lead to make jigs and he has literally had to stop building them because yellow ies are so thick right now. I asked him why he didnt simply close his garage door, but he said he had rather be eaten alive than inhale the fumes from the lead he was melting. If you are new to this area you had better get used to getting bitten during the summer months and in the winter months when its warm. Yellow ies generally start showing up here in March and stay until November, but June seems to be the peak month. The female is the blood sucker and the male it is believed feeds on nectar. Generally the afternoon is when most yellow ies begin to show up, but they may be present all day except at night when they seem to disappear until daylight. They love to feed on exposed legs, especially when you are in a car and cant get to them while you are driving. If you want to entertain yourself one afternoon just sit outside with a y ap and see how many you can kill. Ive been able to pile up quite a few in just one sitting, but by the next day they have been replaced by a fresh crop. After awhile they will taper off and your bare legs can relax awhile. That is, until the black or deer ies show up and in October the really bad ones show up in the form of dog ies. If you think you can comfortably sit by the pool or patio at night y free, we also have mosquitoes too keep us company. Im sure the Chamber of Commerce forgot to mention these little pests when it beckoned you to move south.

U.S. 90 in Bonifay. Bonifay is known for the Biggest All Night Sing in the World. Dating back to the early 50s with promoter J.G. Whiteld, the Southern Gospel Sing has a long of history of success and popularity over its 62 years. During its most popular run in the 1970s and 80s, the sing would draw as many as 14,000-15,000 fans. The sing has experienced many changes over the years, but there are several things that have remained constant: the music, the message and deep history. Everyone who attends the sing is sure to have a great time. This years lineup will include Kevin Williams, guitarist for Bill Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band; Wes Hampton, tenor for the Gaither Vocal Band; The Nelons; Four Calvary; and One Heart. Kevin Williams is an accomplished musician who is no stranger to Southern gospel music. While growing up in Russell Springs, Ky., Williams rst picked up a guitar at age 12 and began playing at churches and community events just two years later. His natural ability and hunger to grow as an artist led to countless opportunities to produce, perform and record professionally. As a kid, I would sit on the front row at concerts of many of the artists that are now featured on the Gaither Homecoming videos, Williams said. It has been my honor to play for them and get to know them. I will never forget men like George Younce and Joel Hemphill who offered an encouraging word to a then-hopeful 14-year-old guitar player. Williams began touring with the legendary Wendy Bagwell & The Sunliters until 1995, when he produced the groups last project, I Feel Like Singing. Since then, he has become an integral part of the Gaither Homecoming Tour, and as a studio session player has played on countless recordings. Known and loved around the world not only for his guitar savvy but also his quick wit, Williams now celebrates more than two decades in gospel music, more than 600 recordings and hundreds of live appearances. This guitar player, band director and resident smart-alec for the Gaither Homecoming Tour continues to light up arenas all over the world with his warm spirit, musical expertise and passion for blessing audiences with the gift of laughter. Kevin and his wife, Kathy, reside in Nashville, Tenn., with their two daughters, Carolina and Olivia. Wes Hampton grew up with an admiration for music, especially the music of Steve Green, Larnelle Harris, Michael English and the iconic Gaither Vocal Band. Hampton attended Trevecca Nazarene University from 1996 until 1998. He moved to Birmingham, Ala., and married his wife, Andrea, in 1998. He nished his Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and minor in music in August 2000 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Hampton was part of the worship staff at a local church in Birmingham for seven years, until he accepted the tenor position for the Gaither Vocal Band in June 2005. Hampton won the 2006 Singing News Horizon Individual Fan Award for best new artist and was nominated with the Gaither Vocal Band for a Grammy in 2007 (Give it Away) and in 2008 (Lovin Life). Hamptons rst project with the Gaither Vocal Band, Give it Away, won three Dove Awards from the GMA in 2007 for best Southern gospel song of the year, best Southern gospel record of the year and best long form video of the year. Hamptons third album with the Gaither Vocal Band, Lovin Life, won a Grammy in 2009 for best southern gospel or country bluegrass album as well as a Dove Award. The GVBs project, Reunited, received a Dove Award in 2010 for best Southern gospel record of the year. Hampton also has released two solo albums. The Hamptons reside in the Birmingham area and have four little boys: Barrett, Hudson, Carden and Sutton. With numerable awards and accolades including three Grammy nominations, Six Gospel Music Association Dove Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, The Nelons continue to produce innovative music that embraces their traditional roots, while simultaneously reaching beyond various musical boundaries with an emphasis on introducing songs for the church. The Nelons have a heavy touring schedule consisting of more than 150 concerts annually that takes their brand of Christian music around the world. They are regulars on the Bill Gaither Homecoming Tour and the famed Gaither Homecoming Video Series. For original group member Kelly Nelon Clark, singing alongside her husband, songwriter and group arranger Jason Clark, and daughter Amber Nelon Thompson is a full-circle moment as she reects on the countless nights she shared the stage with her Hall of Fame Father, Rex Nelon.

Now theyre saying that isnt what will be given. These students have looked forward to this trip, can you explain to them why the sudden change. Superintendent of Schools Eddie Dixon denied that such an offer was made and that the school board policy always had a cap of $1,500 per group for contributions. We did divide them into two groups so that we could contribute more and agreed on a $3,500 reimbursement, said Dixon. The $1,500 cap has always been in place. I dont know how you wouldve heard otherwise. Smith requested a copy of the policy where the $1,500 cap was indicated and Dixon agreed to provide a copy.

Wells explained that there were various means of paying for the vehicles, which included a $10,000 insurance claim, the income from selling three of their oldest vehicles and a grant from the Department of Transportation for the recent Click it or Ticket campaign. With all of these incomes, Wells said that the majority of the vehicles would be paid for and properly equipped, leaving a maximum remainder of $15,000 required from elsewhere and the city agreed to help. Council approved to reduce the rates for Rodeo vendors on the City property just across from Memorial Field from $300 to $225.

Local Wednesday, June 11, 2014 who cant be here today. Board approved of ad dressing the issue of placing the $1,500 cap in standard policy at the next workshop. Board member Deb bie Kolmetz questioned why the Holmes County District seemed to be in the red, re ferring to the debt of the dis trict. Larry Hawkins, District Financial Ofcer, explained that ever since funding was cut in 2008 the District has been struggling out of debt, which was greatly helped with the assistance of the stimu lus money implemented by Obama in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Currently the District is $1.5 million in the red, how ever Hawkins said that is a steady decline since 2008. He also added that there will be an appearance of a massive uctuation in funds every pay period as the payroll is being distributed. Kolmetz asked the Board why she was unable to be placed on the agenda even after following the require ments. She referred to the meeting on May 6 where the Board approved of changing the format of the agenda to include unnished and new business. She also referred to the meeting on May 21 where she wanted to be put on the agenda to adopt the new poli cy and to discuss videotaping school board meetings. Dix on said he didnt think that is how procedure dictated and the Board approved to allow School Board Attorney Lucas Taylor to research the matter for the proper proce dure in this matter. Chair Rusty Williams informed everyone Com mander White, long time ed ucator and former superin tendent, had recently passed away and requested prayer for his family. Kolmetz informed the Board she was in con tact with the Florida School Board Association about of class on school board mat ters and the Board agreed that they would be interested in discussing it further at the next workshop. Kolmetz informed the Board she was at the Ponce de Leon High School graduation and the lights in the parking lot was still out, leaving the parking lot dark. Dixon explained the wiring was very old and after prog ress was made, lightening stuck, damaging progress made. He said they are re ecting on various ways of repair, including newer lights, however all avenues are expensive. Board approved 20142015 Agreement with Florida Virtual Blended Learning Community/Virtual Learn ing Lab; Overnight/out of state trips; and personnel recommendations. Board member Shirley Owens said she had enjoyed this years dramas, plays, banquets and functions, say ing they were the icing on the cake. She also wanted to bid fair well to all the educa tors retiring this year, com mending them on their many years of commitment and dedication to education. Weve seen a couple of graduations and have a few more to go, said Dixon. The most honorable thing is having the opportunity to take part in seeing our chil dren on to the next level of their lives.

Financing Arranged (W AC) A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser TRIP from page A1 ROAD from page A1 ity. These upgrades considered are chip seal, which is a pavement sur face treatment that combines one or more layers of asphalt with one or more layers of aggregate. County Engineer Whitney Nel son from Melvin Engineering in formed the Board that Jackson County used chip seal on 32 miles of road and during the last rain di saster those 32 miles required no maintenance. Nelson also informed the Board that chip seal roads also had the availability for Small Com munity Outreach Program (SCOP) and Small County Rural Assistance Program (SCRAP). One option considered is an im provement project that allows for all the work to fall under one estimate, creating a cap, which is a limited, one-time amount in that estimated amount, leaving the projects open for the county to be accountable to repair and improve the roads and the money would be given to the County in advance. The down side being Hyatt informed the Board the deadline for applying for the grant has passed. The Board pressed for reconsid eration, with County Attorney Jeff Goodman at the forefront, inform ing the representatives that during the nine-month limitation another disaster occurred and impeded the process. Another option was an Alternate Program, which has a 12 month limitation, similar to the previous improvement project with a cost estimation and cap only without the consolidation of projects, which gives more freedom for the County to do work as they deem necessary. The drawback is no payment up front and a 10 percent penalty if any discrepancies are found in the paper work. Anything involving a reim bursement is obligating us as a small, rural county to acquire a revolving loan because they have to front the money for repairs and improvements, said Goodman. Were sick of continually pouring down dirt and rock and were sick of polluting our waterways with the run-off. Wed love to be your federal guinea pig. Goodmans reference to being a federal guinea pig steams from the fact that this is a new program and that they would be the rst county to apply for the program. Because both are new programs County Engineer Cliff Knauer from Preble Rish said that is the reason for the majority of the delays in re pairing of the roads, explaining that set requirements werent estab lished until December. He added that there were penalties that if a road was rejected the road would never be eligible for FEMA funds in the future. A large number of roads were rejected because the costs could not exceed the cost per feet to replace dirt on regular dirt roads and the roads in need of low water crossing and riprap were rejected because they exceeded that stan dard placed by FEMA. Johnson apologized for the haphazardness of the new project, assuring Knauer that those issues have been resolved and promised to get word back to Goodman as soon as he received approval or de nial to the countys request. There are four options, which are Improved Projects, Section 406 Mitigation, Alternate Projects and Alternative Procedures under the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act, said Hyatt. FEMA is cur rently evaluating whether the Al ternative Procedures options may still be available to the county as there is a 9 month deadline from the disaster declaration to accept FEMAs estimates of repairs. agreed to have a new ordinance written up for the Council to re view at the next meeting dealing with residents and landscapers who leave their grass clippings, leaves and other yard debris in the street and in the ditches caus ing drainage issues. Taylor added that he would also send a letter to all landscapers informing them that an ordinance will be written, passed and enforced by nes for all those in violation. Council reviewed the Holm es County Interlocal agreement. Taylor informed the Council that it had to do with gas taxes and the 10 percent that the city received from it. He said it was an agreement they already had with the County, however it was due to expire and from his brief review of the two there was no variation. He said he would have it fully reviewed and ready to be discussed by the next meeting. Council approved to donate $400 to the 11th Annual Panhandle Patriotic Celebration to be held by the Holmes Baptist Association on June 29 at the Bonifay Recre ation Field, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and reworks beginning at 9 p.m. The event is free for all to attend. The Panhandle Patriotic Cel ebration is a really good thing for this city, said Mayor Lawrence Cloud. Next to the Rodeo I dont know of anything else that brings in so many people to our city for one celebration. The next meeting of the Boni fay City Council will be at 6 p.m. on June 23. VEHICLE from page A1 Staff Report BONIFAY The Bonifay Po lice Department reports a re cent rash of phone scams, what makes them different this time is that the scammers are using lo cal numbers. According to the Bonifay Po lice Department, over the past few days, several reports have been led with the Bonifay Police Department concerning a phone scam being received from local phone numbers. These kinds of calls generally begin with recorded messages that include statements like: There are no problems current ly with your account, however it is urgent that you contact us con cerning your eligibility for lower ing your interest rates to as little as 6 point 9 per cent. The automated message in variably does not include the name of the company, but may claim to be with Card Services or Card Holder Services. After the initial recorded mes sage, consumers must dial an other number to be connected to a live person. The live operator usually starts the sales pitch by asking for the consumers credit card number and whether the con sumer is interested in lowering their interest rates. The negotiation undertaken by these companies can be as simple as calling the customer service number listed on the back of the consumers credit card and asking a customer ser vice representative to lower the interest rate. The public needs to know that thieves choose numbers they want to appear on Caller ID, said Police Chief Chris Wells. Technology available for purchase on the Internet allows crooks to use a fake caller ID to make bogus phone calls look like they are coming from a le gitimate and trustworthy source to gain access to a victims valu able personal information. They can seem legitimate because the telephone number of the local person or entity shows up on the caller ID. Most of the time, they are originating from overseas in places like Nigeria. Bonifay Police Department urges to never give personal in formation to someone who calls. Con artists will lie, cheat, steal, and make up plausible stories to convince you to di vulge sensitive information, said Wells. The callers are often professional criminals who are skillfully able to get personal in formation before the victim has time to properly assess the situ ation. Contact your bank and the Credit Bureau immediately if you fall victim to this or any similar scam. Bonifay Police Department warns residents of recent phone scams

Jacqueline Jackie Evanne Prime Burnett Marshall, or as a called her, Mema, was a woman of astonishing beauty, both inside and out. With everything she did, my grandmother poured her heart and soul into it. More so is that she wanted to show with everything that she did, not her love, but Gods love above all else. To me, she was even more beautiful than Marilyn Monroe and kinder than Mother Teresa. She passed away in 2011, and Ive only now managed to cross the milestone of being able to clean out some of her stuff, but only with the help of my mother. Ive seen that she was a dancer, ballet and tap dancing. When I saw her name as the Swan Princess, a member of the Rainbow Sunshine Tappers and many other roles all in the same production, I knew that was a re ection of her strong will and tireless enthusiasm. The boxes were also lled with sewing projects, all by hand, and you could tell that she was practicing something she loved with the colorful and whimsical designs of dancing animals and children following along. She also kept every photo and present everyone ever gave her, and you could tell she cherished every one of them with the level of care used to store them. The tragedy behind all this is that she didnt know she was beautiful. She was always going on diets and trying new things to improve something that was so brilliant. To me, it was like painting a diamond. I know Im biased because to me she was everything, but I know everyone else saw it, too. The same goes for my mother. Shes always so optimistic and often gets herself into trouble by her tireless and sel ess need to help others, even when she doesnt have that need for herself. Shes a morning person, waking before the dawn so she can enjoy the sky changing colors. She nds beauty in the simple, and when something is drab, she will color it herself. She was known in Holmes County High School for her spontaneous personality and clothing. She would doodle designs all over her jeans, shed play in the mud and she has never met a stranger. She was setting trends before anyone knew what trends were. She marched to the beat of her own drum, and even if everyone didnt like the beat, they may have still found their toes tapping to it. My mother is brilliant, shining like the sunrise, birds chirping and all, which is why my grandmother nicknamed her Rebird, meaning happy bird. My mother doesnt know shes beautiful, either. I thought of how sad it is that they dont know theyre beautiful and know that there are many more women who might feel the same way. I know there must be daughters out there who are reading this and are thinking of their mothers or family members or friends who are thinking the same. Whats funny about this is that the women reading this may be thinking of everyone but themselves. With worries and doubts aside, can you say you think youre beautiful? I cant say that Im not beautiful because a piece of my grandmother and mother live on in me, and when I smile I want people to see even the slightest bit of them in it. I know some beautiful women I work with every day, beautiful women I meet every day during work and beautiful women throughout the community. Its their hearts, shining in brilliant colors in all they say and do. You are beautiful, and in time, I hope you, too, will see that at least a little bit more and more. Maya Angelou put it best in her poem Phenomenal Woman: I say, Its the re in my eyes, And the ash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I am a woman Phenomenally. Thank you for your time. See you next week.

This spirited, energetic lady was celebrating her 80th birthday as a trusted nurse at DMH. Born March 29, 1934, to John and Mittie (Jenkins) Kolmetz on Vernon Star Route, Bertha is the youngest of 13 children born in her blended family. Graduating in 1952 from Vernon High School, she has remained in the Washington County area most of her life. Her home is on land homesteaded by her grandfather, Frederick Nicholas Kolmetz, in the mid-1800s. Her marriage to the late R.J. Padgett produced three sons and one daughter. At one time, the whole family was a part of Doctors Memorial Hospital staff. Daughter Patty Seal is an operating room nurse. Patty was working at Bay Medical and was by our side when our Dad, Hugh Wells, died. Son Rick Padgett worked for a time in dietary at DMH, and his brother Scott has a mobile nuclear medicine unit that services Doctors Memorial weekly. Bertha is con dent she will be well taken care of in her old age, as each of her children is married to a nurse. Like so many of my generation did, Bert started her family, and after they were old enough to require less care, she returned to school. She graduated from Chipola Jr. College with her LPN certi cation in 1968 and worked at Jackson Hospital in Marianna until she returned to school for her registered nurse degree. She earned that while working as an LPN in Mercy Hospital in Champaign, Ill., in 1981. After that, she returned home to Washington County and worked at Gulf Coast Hospital in Panama City until coming to Doctors Memorial in Bonifay 14 years ago. I have previously written about my earliest encounter with Bertha Kolmetz, when I told about my rst ride on the Millers Ferry. I had ridden home in a two-mule wagon with my Dads cousins, the Bryant children, who lived in the same community as the Kolmetz family. They took me to Prayer Meeting on Wednesday night. This was a new experience for me, as Primitive Baptists didnt have prayer meetings. I worried that they might call on me to pray. I must have been about 8. Bertha and her brother Delbert were a few years younger, and they sang in church that night, OH be careful little hands, what you do. For the father up above who is looking down in love, OH be careful little hands what you do. I probably wouldnt have refused to join them in singing, though, if I had known the song. I later knew Bertha and Delbert at Vernon School. Bertha and her family still love singing. She also loves to travel, and she loves her home and gardening. Living near the Millers Ferry/Shell Landing area, she also loves shing. But most of all, she loves her work as a nurse. Her favorite part of nursing was when she worked labor and delivery in the past. Now she is working PRN, which means when someone cant come in, Bert is called. Her daughter says she comes alive when she gets that call. She said, My mother will be moping about the house, but when she gets the call to come to work, she is like the Clydesdale horses. She prances about the house; she gets that uniform on; she puts on her makeup; she grabs her walking shoes, and shes ready to go. Bertha (Bert) Kolmetz Padgett is just another of the dedicated employees at Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay. The words to a gospel song sum up the life of Bertha Padgett and about her hope for the future. She has experienced all of the adversities of life as the song says, Some through the re, some through the ood, some through great sorrow, but all through the blood. Twice her home burned, and in 1994, the family experienced the ooding of the Choctawhatchee River and Holmes Creek. Her great sorrow was the death of her youngest son in an accident at age 18 and the death of her youngest grandson with cancer at age 28. But through it all, she is con dent of the blood of Jesus and His ability to carry us through all these things. She is a shining example of the optimism her faith brings. Immigrants not entitled to bene ts Dear Editor, I write this letter about my concern for the double standard principle we see going on in this country. The president and the Democrats seem to not be concerned about that we have two citizens who are in jail in Mexico for crossing the border illegally. The former military gentleman crossed their border by mistake, with guns in his truck, which he kept in his truck all the time with all other things he owned, as per his statement and a friend. The truck driver just made a wrong turn, as per the media. The military gentleman has been put in chains and his clothes taken off. It has not been stated what has been done to the truck driver, as of May 31. There has not been any effort by President Obama and his party to get these two out. It is stated that crossing the border by mistake, is a common matter. Yet the president and the Democratic Party are demanding we give those citizens from Mexico citizenship, etc., even though they did not cross our border by mistake, but illegally and with preplanned actions. What do we do with them? We see that they get jobs, jobs out citizens need and want; we give them housing; we provide them with food and medical care; and we do not strip them of their clothing but provide any needed. I do not recommend that they be put in jail, but taken and loaded onto a truck or put in buses and returned to Mexico, and give them a rm warning that if they come again, they will be put in prison and will be required to work without pay. If farmers need them, let the farmer pay for their labor by paying the government at least $7 to $10 an hour for at least six to 12 months. If they bring their children, let them serve extra for the cost of taking care of them during their respective time in prison. Mexico, it seems, has strict border polices. We should have the same and enforce them. Do not use them for political reasons. Editor, I am thankful that the citizens of America spoke out against the way out ex-military personnel have been treated. I pray they will wake up and speak out about this immigration matter. Protect the jobs in our country. Protect our nancial status in this country with stopping the giveaway to illegal border violators. Please do not just talk about it, take action and speak out; write or call your Congress personnel, Senate and House. Write or call the president. This needs to be done by all Democrats, Republicans, Independents or whoever. This border protection is not just directed toward the Mexicans, but to anyone who comes into this country illegally. I close by asking the senior citizens, now drawing their Government Bene t Fund dollars, originally known as Social Security Fund, just how much money from the funds you and your employer paid in and those working now are paying in, is being used to support these illegal individuals, jailed or being let run free with all the bene ts? Call for these two American citizens, who entered Mexico by mistake, to be released and for those individuals who have crossed our border illegally and with premeditated plane to be returned home. Thank you, editor. I just hope more who say they are concerned would call or write you. I believe the majority feel as I do, based upon the conversations with me. The Rev.

The Gulf Coast VA in cludes the Panama City Outpatient Clinic at the Navy base in Panama City Beach, as well as centers in Pensacola; Eglin Air Force Base; Mobile, Ala.; and Biloxi, Miss. All but the Panama City Beach facility were agged. Representatives of the Gulf Coast VA system de clined to comment on the ndings Monday, saying they would release addi tional information Tuesday. The audit revealed 1,373 local veterans enrolled and requested appoint ments but were never seen through the Gulf Coast system. That number is three times higher than any oth er VA system in the same geographic network, which includes the Florida Panhandle, Mississippi, Loui siana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and parts of Texas. The average wait time for a new patient in the Gulf Coast system was 48.6 days, while those waiting to see a specialty care doctor were seen in about 46 days. New mental health patients had an average wait time of just over 37 days. Established patients waited an average of just over four days to be seen by a primary care physician and more than six days for a specialty care physician. Both of those wait times were among the longest in the network. Mental health patients who are already in the sys tem waited an average of two days, which compared more favorably. The audit also com pared patient wait times for VA systems across the nation. The audit did not break down the information into individual facilities. A spokesperson for the Gulf Coast VA said they would be prepared to share those numbers Tuesday. Audit ags area VA clinics TALLAHASSEE (AP) Flor ida students living in the country illegally will be al lowed to qualify for in-state college tuition rates under a bill signed into law Monday by Gov. Rick Scott. Scott signed the bill pri vately, but touted the sign ing at a campaign event scheduled later in the day in Fort Myers. The new law offers instate college tuition rates to undocumented students who had attended a Florida school for at least three years before graduation. The current in-state rate is one-quarter of what out-ofstate students and those in the country illegally pay. Signing this historic legislation today will keep tuition low, and allow all stu dents who grew up in Flori da to have the same access to affordable higher educa tion, Scott said. With this legislation, higher educa tion became more afford able and more accessible to all Floridians. The measure also re stricts the ability of Florida universities to raise tuition above the rate set each year by legislators. It repeals a law that allowed universities to raise tuition up to 15 per cent a year. Instead it allows two schools the Univer sity of Florida and Florida State University to raise tuition up to 6 percent with out approval by the Florida Legislature. When he campaigned as governor four years ago, Scott vowed to push tougher anti-immigration measures. He also voiced opposition to offering the in-state tuition rate to students living in the country illegally. But the Republican gov ernor changed his stance during a year when His panic voters might prove to be crucial during a tough reelection ght. Scott also plans to re mind voters that former Gov. Charlie Crist, who is now running as a Democrat, approved the changes that let universities raise tuition above the rates set annually by legislators. The in-state college tu ition bill had been consid ered several times before during the past decade and had support from Republi cans such as then-Gov. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio when he was in the Legislature. But it divided the Republi cans and never passed. This year, the proposal again drew sharp opposi tion from some Republi cans. During oor debate, several GOP state senators questioned the potential cost almost $50 million when fully implemented and said the state should not reward people who had broken the law by com ing, or living, in the United States illegally. I know it feels good giv ing benets away, said Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach said in early May. We are giving so many benets to non-citizens. ... Does it matter even be ing an American citizen anymore? The measure ultimately was passed because of the strong pushing by Scott and other top Republican lead ers such as House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel.

Local A6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, June 11, 2014 FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) More than 8,500 new pa tients are still waiting for initial medical appoint ments at six VA hospitals and clinics throughout Florida 90 days or more af ter requesting them, with the longest wait list at the Gainesville facility, accord ing to an audit released Monday by the Veterans Affairs Department. Additionally, more than 5,000 who enrolled at Flor ida VA facilities over the past 10 years have never had appointments. The audit of 731 VA hos pitals and outpatient clinics around the U.S. found that a complicated appointment process created confusion among scheduling clerks and supervisors. A 14-day goal for seeing rst-time patients was unattainable given the growing demand among veterans for health care and poor planning, the audit said. The VA has abandoned that goal. The audit noted 13 percent of VA schedulers reported supervisors telling them to falsify appointment dates to make waiting times ap pear shorter. The massive data re lease comes amid growing nationwide concerns with veterans care. Last month, long wait times and secret waiting lists ultimately prompted the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shin seki. The issue has also be come a political thorn for the Obama administration during mid-term elections, which Republicans have seized on. Florida ofcials led a lawsuit last week after making unannounced vis its to VA hospitals in in West Palm Beach, Bay Pines, Miami, Lake City, Gainesville and Tampa in April and May to inves tigate allegations of sub standard care. VA ofcials blocked them each time. In letters to Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Elizabeth Dudek, secretary of the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, VA ofcials said federal facili ties arent subject to state laws. The Gainesville VA hospital had 4,000 new pa tients who were unable to get an appointment 90 days after requesting one. More than 3,000 who enrolled at that facility in the past 10 years never received ap pointments. The Bay Pines facility in St. Petersburg was next in the state with 712 new patients unable to get appointments 90 days or more after requesting one. Almost 1,200 who have enrolled in the facility in the past 10 years still not had an appointment, the audit found. A new patient had to wait an average of 63 days to see a specialist in Tampa and an average of 48 days in Miami and Gainesville to see a primary care doctor, according to the audit. The Sunshine State is home to 1.6 million veter ans and boasts the largest population of World War II veterans in the nation, according to the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs. State ofcials said they led the lawsuit after re ceiving numerous com plaints with references to long wait times, lack of at tention, unsanitary condi tions and improper medi cal care. In a letter to the gover nor, employees at the West Palm facility said four pa tients fell between 2013 and 2014, causing serious inju ry and, in one case, death. Another patient missed a chemotherapy treatment because a chemo nurse wasnt scheduled. Another veteran in his 50s was hav ing a pacemaker replaced when employees allege he went into cardiac arrest be cause the anesthesiologist used the wrong size nee dle. That patient developed fasciitis and underwent an emergency surgery to save his arm, but he subse quently died, according to the letter signed by con cerned employees. A copy of the letter was included in the lawsuit led by state ofcials. Meanwhile, federal of cials have taken several steps to address the scan dal, including hiring freez es at administrative ofc es. The agency also plans to use temporary stafng measures, including mo bile medical units, to accel erate care for veterans on wait lists. About 37 percent of the U.S. sites visited by the feds will require further review based on responses from front-line staff, includ ing facilities in Gainesville, Bay Pines, Lake City and Pensacola.

On Thursday, Wolf, owner of Off the Vine Organic Produce, demonstrated her techniques during a Raw Food Class at Somethins Cookin, 93 E. 11th St. Her Italian style meal included two pastas, salad and a dessert, but pasta was replaced with spiralized vegetables, Alfredo sauce was made from cashews, and nothing was cooked. The menu focused on retaining nutrients and enzymes of fresh fruits and vegetables in their natural states with added bene ts. It keeps the kitchen cool in the summer, said Hannelore Holland, owner of Somethins Cookin. While the bistro and gourmet cooking shop usually hosts cooking classes, Wolf said, We are going to show you today how to not cook and eat raw. What I wasnt expecting was to be blown away by how good the food tasted. Many of the raw food recipes stemmed from Ani Phyos book, Raw Food Kitchen, and Wolf has adapted her own versions of some of the recipes. Finding her own avors has Retain flavor, nutrients in foods natural state I recreated the Fettuccine Squash Noodles in Alfredo Sauce recipe at home with spiral cut zucchini squash, fresh lemon juice, thyme and garlic, organic cashews, celery and a little water.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A9 Wednesday, June 11, 2014 been just trial and error. I really encourage you to go beyond the recipes. Its all about nding things you want to eat again, Wolf said. So much of what you are eating already is raw salads and fruits. Just substitute pasta. One thing can be cut out, replaced. Raw food isnt about telling you not to eat things, but trying to be healthy. Its about cleaning up our diet. Maybe replace salt with Himalayan or sea salt. Raw food is about trying to get nutrients into your body. She said when her husband, who already had been eating organic for years, cut out grains and sugar, he lost his basketball and now has a at stomach. Aspects of a raw food meal or diet can be used to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into a familys healthy eating plan. I want people to think it looks simple. I try to keep it very simple, Wolf added. Its a great way to get kids to eat healthier. She started by cutting the ends off the zucchini squash, putting each in the small spiralizer and turning the handle to transform the squash into spirals. Its very easy to do, or use a mandolin and you can make lasagna with it by layering the zucchini, Wolf said. For those who are apprehensive about a cold veggie pasta, Boil the water and warm it up for a minute, then let the noodle heat the sauce. Wolf has gone more extreme in her kitchen, taking out her oven and stove three years ago (and you wont nd a microwave either), but she knows thats not for everyone. I always try to encourage raw and maybe sh or a warm side. You have to feed your family, she said. The rest could be raw or slightly cooked. I still use a wok and George Foreman Grill when I do things like bok choy. Just try not to overcook things. When we do, we are romancing the nutrients right out of it. For the Alfredo sauce, Wolf put raw organic cashews in a Cuisinart food processor. Raw means no roasting or salting, she explained. You could use a powerful blender, a Blendtec or Vitamix. Wolf also showed the class how to improvise, substituting an apple and pear for celery. You are just trying to get some texture, she said. Just chop and put it in the Cuisinart. The celery gives a natural salt, so (because we arent using celery) that means we will be adding salt. The pear is a little rougher and has just enough sweetness for the cream. Instead of thyme, she added a tablespoon of fresh rosemary, doubled the amount of garlic tasting as she went and a teaspoon of eur de sel, a hand-harvested sea salt. Always taste as you go, she said. When you get the sauces made, let them sit about 10 minutes before serving for richer avors. This could be made a couple of days ahead of time. If you are having a party, it ends up better the next day. If you are not serving immediately, the sauce and veggie noodles should be stored in separate containers for up to two days. The squash will release water and should be drained before mixing with the sauce. The simplicity of sauce is just beautiful. Its so simple to do and no cooking perfect for lunches because it only gets better with time, Wolf said. For the angel-hair squash noodles, she used yellow squash, but you also could use zucchini squash. Or mix both together, said Wolf, who had presoaked the sun-dried tomatoes for her Sun-dried Tomato Marinara. In place of dates, I am using a little (raw) honey, just bringing out sweetness. Maybe use a teaspoon of pureed dates. The fresh basil and citrus avors of the marinara sauce were a nice contrast to the creamy garlic and slightly sweet Alfredo sauce on the plate. Wolfs original Quick Black Pepper Southern Side Salad topping was spooned over a fresh spring mix for a deliciously salty salad lled with avor and texture. The salad is very simple, Wolf said. And the amino acids are a great substitute to soy. The topping includes Vidalia onions, white button mushrooms, fresh cut corn off the cob, honey, fresh black pepper and Bragg Liquid Aminos made from soybeans and puri ed water. Bragg, a non-GMO project veri ed and glutenfree seasoning, is available from health food stores and some supermarkets. I also have done (raw) green beans with Bragg, pumpkin seeds and onion and marinate it about 1/3 cup Bragg to 2/3 extra virgin olive oil in a plastic container, keeps three or four days, she said. Wolf made the recipes look easy. I want you to go home and think, I can do that, she said, and I did. I used a spiral vegetable cutter, a Veggetti, to make the noodles for the Fettuccine Squash Noodles in Alfredo Sauce recipe, which I cut in half. I put the other serving of noodles in a container in the refrigerator. Although I used celery for the sauce, I added sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper for more avor. I ended up using about cup of water and later regretted not using more garlic than in the recipe. I blanched the noodles in boiling water, but realized I preferred the raw texture. Next time, I will let the zucchini come to room temperature before spiralizing, as Wolf had suggested. Somethins Cookin, the Panama City pick-up location for Off the Vine (OfftheVine.org), carries spiralizers, as well as some organic teas and seasonings and Certi ed Kosher/Certi ed Organic Flour Power Bread from German Bread Haus in Fort Lauderdale. We get the bread delivered fresh every Wednesday. A lot of my organic pick-up people who buy boxes get that, Holland said. Fettuccine Squash Noodles in Alfredo Sauce Noodles: 2 large zucchini squash Sauce: Juice of 1 lemon, about 3 tablespoons plus to taste 2 cups cashews 1/8 yellow onion, about 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons fresh thyme 2 cloves garlic 2-3 stalks celery (or apple/ pear no peel), coarsely chopped cup water, as needed Use a spiralizer or mandolin to create noodles. Blend lemon juice, cashews, onion, thyme, garlic and celery until smooth and creamy. Add water only as needed. Toss and let sit 10-15 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.

PAWS & CLAWS Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Page 10 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section By TONY SIMMONS 747-5080 | @PCTonyS tsimmons@pcnh.com Hurricane season is upon us, and while the experts expect a slow summer for the super storms, its still a good idea to prepare for the worst. As recent torrential rainfall and localized ooding has shown us, sometimes the worst storms are the ones that didnt give you days to prepare. That means making plans to take care of all the members of your household including the four-legged ones. Some of the things you can do to prep for the unexpected, such as assembling an animal emergency supply kit and developing a pet care buddy system, are the same for any emergency, according to the experts at Ready.gov and the Humane Society of Bay County. Whether you decide to stay put in an emergency or evacuate to a safer location, you will need to make plans in advance for your pets. Keep in mind that whats best for you typically is whats best for your animals. We always advise people to have a plan so that if an evacuation is ordered they have a better place to go than a shelter, said Bob Pearce, executive director of the Central Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross, speaking to The News Herald. If you could make arrangements to visit a relative or go someplace further away from the coast, you are going to be a lot more comfortable that way. You pets will be more comfortable too. If you plan to go to a public shelter, its important to understand that animals might not be allowed inside. Plan in advance for shelter alternatives that will work for both you and your pets; consider loved ones or friends outside of the immediate area who would be willing to host you and your pets in an emergency. Although all Bay County Emergency Shelters are pet friendly, not all pets are welcome, according to information provided by the Humane Society. Birds and reptiles are not permitted in the shelters, for instance. If of cials order an evacuation and open a shelter, the rst one opened in Bay County will be the special needs shelter at Bozeman High School, 13410 State 77, just north of Lake Merial. Generally, this shelter will be opened 72 hours in advance of a projected storm to allow ample time for seniors or others with special medical needs to arrive. Because of health concerns, the Department of Health has mandated that any animals brought to this special needs shelter must be housed in a building separate from the human population. Once admitted, no further contact between the owner and their animal can take place until they depart, in order to reduce the potential that the owner might bring pet dander or other contaminates into the main facility. Personnel from Bay County Animal Services will be available to water, feed, walk the animals and do whatever necessary to make them comfortable. Any time theres any type of emergency, we have to be there at the shelters, said Paula Hunter of Bay County Animal Services. We all respond to work. If Bozeman lls to capacity, other shelters will open and pet owners will be allowed to care for their own pets at those locations. If you cant go to a relative or friends home outside the evacuation zone, and youd rather not stay at a public shelter, you might opt to nd a pet-friendly hotel instead. You should contact hotels ahead of any disaster to check policies on accepting pets, and ask if no pet policies could be waived in an emergency. (Visit PetsWelcome.com online to nd pet-friendly hotels and motels.) You should never leave a pet behind if you must evacuate; if its too dangerous for you to stay, then its too dangerous for your pet. A house pet is unlikely to survive a disaster if left on its own. However, in some cases it might be impossible to accommodate your pet in the event of an evacuation. If that happens, the experts suggest the following: Con ne the pet to a safe area inside the house. Never leave a pet chained outside. Instead, leave them loose inside the home with food and water. Place a notice outside in a visible area to advise anyone checking the home what pets are in the house; include a phone number where you or a contact can be reached. Whether you are away from home for a day or a week, you will need essential supplies. Keep items in an accessible place and store them in sturdy containers that can be carried easily, such as duf e bags or covered plastic containers.

The Chipley native and Florida Ga tors righthanded pitcher was selected by Boston in the 11th round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Saturday. He was the highest-drafted player with area ties during the third and nal day of the event. It also marked the third time he was chosen in the draft. Whitson went ninth overall to San Diego in 2010 out of Chipley only to turn down more than $2 million to pitch for Florida. He missed 2013 with a shoulder injury and was taken in the 37th round by Washington. The latest selection is likely his last, but he has the option to return to Florida with a redshirt year of eligibility. He appeared in 14 games with nine starts for Florida this season. The former 15thranked prep prospect was 1-1 with 21 strikeouts and 23 walks in 37 1/3 innings for the Gators. When healthy he can be a dominant pitcher, as evi denced by his 8-1 record and 92 strikeouts as a freshman. Whitson was one of eight area prospects chosen Satur day. Four from Chipola Ian Rice, Palmer Betts, Tucker Simpson and Taylor Lewis and two from Gulf Coast, Christian Williams and Max Bartlett, also were drafted. And David Trexler capped his college career with a selection. Trexler was the next to go in the 17th round to the Chicago White Sox. The right-handed pitcher nished his senior season at North Florida with six wins and he also pitched collegiately at Gulf Coast and Florida State while competing for Bay and Mosley in high school. Rice, a catcher, was next to Boston in the 21st round. The nal three Indians draft ed are pitchers, with Betts, taken by Pittsburgh in the 36th round, Simpson drafted by Baltimore in the 39th, and Lewis, a Florida signee, go ing to Colorado in the 40th and nal round. Williams, who was an allstate rst-teamer at designat ed hitter and also played rst base, was chosen by Miami in the 28th round. The round also had marquee picks of Mariano Rivera, the son of the New York Yankees great, and Johnny Manziel, who also was selected in the rst round of the National Football League Draft. Bartlett, a shortstop, rounded out GCs picks in the 36th round to Cleveland. Whitson taken in 11th round AP Chipley native Karsten Whitson was drafted by the Boston Red Sox. MLB DRAFT A chance to get on the bus Kevin Tolar had more bus rides in the minor leagues than Crash Davis. He ate more bad food on the road than your average turkey buzzard. All right already. Enough with the writer B.S. Tolar is a graduate of Mosley High School and the subject of a ve-part series that will run this week and chronicle his 19-year professional baseball career as a left-handed pitcher. It is going to be about Tolar, and not about metaphors and adverbs seeking the sports writing hall of fame, should there be one. More specically, a large part of the series is going to focus on minor league baseball, as well as Winter Ball that Tolar experienced in four countries. Kevin Tolar made it to the major leagues, albeit brief stints with Detroit in 2000 and 2001 and Boston in 2003. He knows exponentially more about the struggle to get there, however, having pitched at every level in the professional structure. That begins with the Rookie leagues and goes up the ladder to Lower Class A, Higher Class A, Double-A and Triple-A. In Tolars case, it also included a season with an independent league team in addition to the aforementioned winter stops in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Venezuela and Taiwan. It was a career he extended while in his 30s because he was tantalizingly close to breaking through on the big-league level. Knocking on the door as he put it. He became a xture in spring training major league camps for the better part of a decade, and is a walking and breathing advertisement for how one key at-bat can shape a professional career. Or one untimely injury. It is a series that underscores the presumption right place at the right time and indicates the consequences of not succeeding when it is your moment. It often has been said and written that baseball is a game of failure. That even the most prolic hitters fail seven times out of 10. Tolars pro career was dened more by the struggle to not only reach the pinnacle of the game, but to stay there. The frustrations of almost two decades suggest that in his case it wasnt merely a journey, but almost a mission. That it took place almost completely under the radar of national media scrutiny heightens its message in this section. Tolar was considerate enough to open a window into a place most of us never have been. Its all but impossible to gauge how many clubhouses he walked in and out of during his nomadic career, but he remains an adherent to its code. Therefore his series wont be a tell-all about what he heard and saw. No one gets thrown under the bus, a term he returned to more than once. But hopefully, at its best, A Life in Baseball might put some of us on that bus with Kevin Tolar, and the hundreds of teenagers every summer who are fortunate enough to sign a professional contract and dream the dream of the ultimate ascension. It starts Tuesday. Sports Beat Pat McCann Executive Sports Editor pmccann@pcnh.com If you are new to Florida you might be experiencing a biting sensation lately you never ran into in other parts of the United States. Its a blood sucker that can really put a hurt on certain people. One of my northern friends who has never seen one of these insects is really having a hard time coping. He has a garage where he does most of his outdoor work such as melting and pouring lead to make jigs and he has literally had to stop building them because yellow ies are so thick right now. I asked him why he didnt simply close his garage door, but he said he had rather be eaten alive than inhale the fumes from the lead he was melting. If you are new to this area you had better get used to getting bitten during the summer months and in the winter months when its warm. Yellow ies generally start showing up here in March and stay until November, but June seems to be the peak month. The female is the blood sucker and the male it is believed feeds on nectar. Generally the afternoon is when most yellow ies begin to show up, but they may be present all day except at night when they seem to disappear until daylight. They love to feed on exposed legs, especially when you are in a car and cant get to them while you are driving. If you want to entertain yourself one afternoon just sit outside with a y ap and see how many you can kill. Ive been able to pile up quite a few in just one sitting, but by the next day they have been replaced by a fresh crop. After awhile they will taper off and your bare legs can relax awhile. That is, until the black or deer ies show up and in October the really bad ones show up in the form of dog ies. If you think you can comfortably sit by the pool or patio at night y free, we also have mosquitoes too keep us company. Im sure the Chamber of Commerce forgot to mention these little pests when it beckoned you to move south.

U.S. 90 in Bonifay. Bonifay is known for the Biggest All Night Sing in the World. Dating back to the early 50s with promoter J.G. Whiteld, the Southern Gospel Sing has a long of history of success and popularity over its 62 years. During its most popular run in the 1970s and 80s, the sing would draw as many as 14,000-15,000 fans. The sing has experienced many changes over the years, but there are several things that have remained constant: the music, the message and deep history. Everyone who attends the sing is sure to have a great time. This years lineup will include Kevin Williams, guitarist for Bill Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band; Wes Hampton, tenor for the Gaither Vocal Band; The Nelons; Four Calvary; and One Heart. Kevin Williams is an accomplished musician who is no stranger to Southern gospel music. While growing up in Russell Springs, Ky., Williams rst picked up a guitar at age 12 and began playing at churches and community events just two years later. His natural ability and hunger to grow as an artist led to countless opportunities to produce, perform and record professionally. As a kid, I would sit on the front row at concerts of many of the artists that are now featured on the Gaither Homecoming videos, Williams said. It has been my honor to play for them and get to know them. I will never forget men like George Younce and Joel Hemphill who offered an encouraging word to a then-hopeful 14-year-old guitar player. Williams began touring with the legendary Wendy Bagwell & The Sunliters until 1995, when he produced the groups last project, I Feel Like Singing. Since then, he has become an integral part of the Gaither Homecoming Tour, and as a studio session player has played on countless recordings. Known and loved around the world not only for his guitar savvy but also his quick wit, Williams now celebrates more than two decades in gospel music, more than 600 recordings and hundreds of live appearances. This guitar player, band director and resident smart-alec for the Gaither Homecoming Tour continues to light up arenas all over the world with his warm spirit, musical expertise and passion for blessing audiences with the gift of laughter. Kevin and his wife, Kathy, reside in Nashville, Tenn., with their two daughters, Carolina and Olivia. Wes Hampton grew up with an admiration for music, especially the music of Steve Green, Larnelle Harris, Michael English and the iconic Gaither Vocal Band. Hampton attended Trevecca Nazarene University from 1996 until 1998. He moved to Birmingham, Ala., and married his wife, Andrea, in 1998. He nished his Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and minor in music in August 2000 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Hampton was part of the worship staff at a local church in Birmingham for seven years, until he accepted the tenor position for the Gaither Vocal Band in June 2005. Hampton won the 2006 Singing News Horizon Individual Fan Award for best new artist and was nominated with the Gaither Vocal Band for a Grammy in 2007 (Give it Away) and in 2008 (Lovin Life). Hamptons rst project with the Gaither Vocal Band, Give it Away, won three Dove Awards from the GMA in 2007 for best Southern gospel song of the year, best Southern gospel record of the year and best long form video of the year. Hamptons third album with the Gaither Vocal Band, Lovin Life, won a Grammy in 2009 for best southern gospel or country bluegrass album as well as a Dove Award. The GVBs project, Reunited, received a Dove Award in 2010 for best Southern gospel record of the year. Hampton also has released two solo albums. The Hamptons reside in the Birmingham area and have four little boys: Barrett, Hudson, Carden and Sutton. With numerable awards and accolades including three Grammy nominations, Six Gospel Music Association Dove Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, The Nelons continue to produce innovative music that embraces their traditional roots, while simultaneously reaching beyond various musical boundaries with an emphasis on introducing songs for the church. The Nelons have a heavy touring schedule consisting of more than 150 concerts annually that takes their brand of Christian music around the world. They are regulars on the Bill Gaither Homecoming Tour and the famed Gaither Homecoming Video Series. For original group member Kelly Nelon Clark, singing alongside her husband, songwriter and group arranger Jason Clark, and daughter Amber Nelon Thompson is a full-circle moment as she reects on the countless nights she shared the stage with her Hall of Fame Father, Rex Nelon. Tickets are $15 advance and $18 at the door. Ages 6-12 are $5 advance and $8 at the door, and ages 5 and younger are free.
