** Zachary Reese McCarver, 33, of Laurel Hill was escorted out by a Holmes County deputy after fans identified him as the subject who threw the bottle. He would later admit to throwing the bottle, telling deputies his emotions got away from him.ŽMcCarver has since called Sheriff Tate and reached out to Bethlehem Coach CarsonLassiter and others in the Bethle-hem community to express his regret in a letter.None of you know me, but I greatly owe you all an apology,Ž wrote McCarver. I am the fan from Laurel Hill who threw a bottle onto the court following the game Saturday night. It was an inappropriate and inex-cusable action that I deeply regret a momentary lapse in judgment that should have never happened and will never happen again, from me.ŽMcCarver also told Holmes County Times-Advertiser he did not mean to hit anyone with the plas-tic bottle, that he threw it in frustration.Deputies report a disturbance erupted among others fans after the inci-dent. Officers began to quell the situation by directing everyone out of the gym.During this process, the mother of a Laurel Hill female juvenile advised deputies her daughter had been struck in head by a white male inside the gym but could not identify the male.ŽDeputies took photos of the juveniles face and advised her parents that since the girl did not know who hit her, they would review footage from the school security system in an attempt to ascertain what happened, not only to their daughter specifically, but also in the incident as a whole. The childs parents reportedly later took her for examination at an area hospital.Other witnesses also allege a Laurel Hill fan struck an elderly Bethlehem fan during the confusion; however, Sheriff Tate states that report is unconfirmed.Bethlehem parents say this is not the first time actions from a Lauren Hill fan has sparked a skirmish.When we played Laurel Hill earlier this season, there was a Laurel Hill parent yelling at our students, and a fan actually got onto the court and almost went after one of our students before one of his compan-ions pulled him back,Ž said BHS parent Jeremy Justice. We have heard from other schools in the dis-trict that they have had the same issues. What are these adults teaching our kids? On both sides, these are 16, 17-year-old kids just play-ing basketball.ŽMeanwhile, Laurel Hill parents allege Holmes County deputies were using racial slurs as officers directed fans and players out of the gym, with Laurel Hill parent Carla Standridge telling Pensacola news sta-tion WEAR deputies were using the n-wordŽ and that she did not feel it was safe for Laurel Hill students to be in Holmes County. It was obvious that Holmes County [law enforcement] was racial, and thats just not acceptable,Ž she told WEAR.Holmes County Sheriff John Tate was present at the game and states claims of racial slurs by deputies are not accurate.I hold my deputies to a high standard of professionalism,Ž said Sheriff Tate. Racist comments and other such inappropriate behaviors are not tolerated, and if anyone can show any examples of my deputies behaving in such a manner especially if they have audio or video evidence of such behavior I want to know about it.ŽMcCarver states his experience with local dep-uties was overall positive, despite the nature of the interaction and that he hopes both teams can put the incident behind them.Deputy Tim Scott escorted me out, and he was nothing but professional and very nice under the circumstances,Ž said McCarver. I truly hope both teams can move forward, and I hope neither community will let my actions be a reflection on Laurel Hill as a whole.ŽMcCarver went on to wish the Wildcats good luck in their regional games.Should our two teams meet again, I pray that both sides will display the level of sportsmanship that should be expected,Ž he said.Sheriff Tate reports video from the school security system was unavailable Monday due to the federal holiday but was obtained by his office Tuesday and is still under review and will be submit-ted to the States Attorneys Office for further action.

And while spontaneous arrivals are equally welcomed, the $750,000 development investment in renovating the property is geared to making the site a destina-tion location.Were also trying to make it a destination park,Ž Peter Swales said. People will come here for a week or so, sit around the pond, do a little bit of fishing, sit around the pool, drink a bit of Chardonnay, that kind of thing.Ž RESORTFrom Page A1 BRAWLFrom Page A1

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld EDITOR Carol Kent Wyatt PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Reform of Floridas rigid criminal-sentenc ing laws and dramatic improvement of the states judicialsystem databases are complementary efforts that warrant simultaneous approval. Fortunately, according to a SarasotaHerald-Tribune news report Sen. Jeff Brandes is seeking to blend sentencing-reform legislation with an equally valuable bill in the House of Representatives to upgrade Floridas databases on sentencing. Senate Bill 694 would enable judges to sentence illegal-drug sellers to less than the minimum „ which can range from three to 15 years, depending on the amount sold „ if the defendant was: not engaged in a continuing criminal enterprise;Ž did not threaten or use violence; did not cause a death or serious bodily injury. This bill and others with the same aim are welcome. The mandatory-minimum laws were designed, in part, to promote consistency in sentencing „ an important goal. But by eliminating judicial discretion, the sentencing laws resulted in too many people going to jail for nonviolent crimes „ ruining the lives of defendants and running up huge expenses for taxpayers when effective alternatives were available. We are trying to get the right sentence to the right person, and make sure the sentence fits the crime,Ž Brandes has said. He added that, in some cases, society is best served by providing someone convicted of illegal-drug possession with addiction treatment rather than long-term incarceration. Getting the right sentence to the right personŽ and ensuring that defendants who need treatment for addiction receive it should be two of the overarching goals of the justice system. But two Herald-Tribune news series „ one on sentencing in criminal cases, the other on access to addiction treatment „ have helped document what anecdotal evidence has long suggested: Race-based disparities exist in the justice system. Those inequities are likely to continue even if Brandes bill is approved, unless outcomes are accurately reported and closely monitored. Determining the causes of such disparities is complicated. But it would be relatively simple for Florida to begin a process of examining longstanding disparities, as well as monitoring the outcome of any sentencing-reform bills passed this year by the Legislature. Progress is within reach. State Rep. Chris Sprowls is the force behind the committee substitute for House Bill 7071. The bill would require the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to compile, maintain and make public sentencing-related data. It would mandate that the data be comparable, transferable and readily usable „ criteria that do not currently exist. It would also require digitized sentencing score sheets and improve criminal justice data transparency. The provisions in the House bill are both warranted and commendable. They make sense, regardless of whether sentencing is reformed, but would be even more valuable if Florida embarks upon constructive changes to get the right sentence or other outcome to the right person. This editorial first appeared in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, a News and Times-Advertiser sister paper with GateHouse Media.Legislation promises improved sentencingANOTHER VIEW Healthy Start is in budget jeopardy Dear Editor, Since the creation of Floridas 32 statewide Healthy Start Coalitions in 1991, our states infant mortality has dropped by 35 percent due in part to the programs comprehensive approach to prenatal and infant care and education. But now, Healthy Start funding is in jeopardy due to proposed budget cuts. The potential impact on our community would be significant, threating at-risk families access to Healthy Start services such as education and support for families including infant care and safe sleep, pregnancy care and preparing for babys arrival, Screening and referrals for perinatal depression, substance abuse, child development, and much more. Chipola Healthy Start Coalition covers Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington Counties. In each of these counties there are childbirth, Car seat safety, and Safe Sleep Classes offered through their local Healthy Start program. Chipola Healthy Start has had a combined baby shower for all counties for the last 4 years. The event had grown to over 700 people, it became so big that each of the Healthy Start programs are now sponsoring their own baby shower for their area. In the 16-17year Chipola Healthy Start served 1,138 clients over our five county area with 26,627 services provided for the year, which averaged to be 23 services per client. The services provided were such as parenting, smoking cessation, childbirth, breastfeeding, etc. all which help reduce the infant mortality rate and improve birth outcomes. Our local Coalition participates in the Fetal and Infant Mortality Review, a program that works to reduce infant mortality by gathering data that helps us understand fetal and infant deaths in our community. With this information, we can identify gaps in services and work toward improving infant mortality locally and around the state. Healthy Start is a cost-effective model that contributes to Floridas better birth outcomes. Every dollar that the Florida Legislature invests in supporting Healthy Start has an incredible return on investment in costs saved from preventing death among infants and mothers by bridging the gap to prenatal care and education.Chephus Granberry, Board Chair for Chipola Healthy Start Marianna, FloridaLETTER TO THE EDITORWhen Holmes County Historical Society President reminded me that we meet on Thursday, February 15, 2018, I quickly visited the facebook page to get the time. I was impressed with all the activities the society participated in in 2017. I have to confess that I did not participate in all of them, but some interesting programs were held in various sections of the county. This was an attempt to encourage participation from the different sections, but unfortunately that didnt happen. As a result, most meetings for 2018 will be held at the museum building on West Kansas Ave in Bonifay. Appropriately, it is on the way to the Bonifay City Cemetery. The Museum is open the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Perhaps holding the meetings at a consistent place and time will encourage attendance. Please note that in extreme temperature months, the meetings may be at the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce or the Library Annex. As I was perusing the Societys facebook page I found these two photos submitted by Ron Clark. The taking up of the railroad bed in 1937 and the mill quarters located in Caryville (No date). Although Caryville is in adjacent Washington County, Holmes County History is very much intertwined with theirs, especially where the mill and railroad are concerned. The Henderson-Waits Lumber Co. purchased the mill located in Caryville about 1912. That business resulted in Bonifay being home to the beautiful Waits Mansion which has been restored by our own Don Smith. The mansion was built by George Orkney Waits who was one of the owners of the Lumber Company in Caryville. He chose to build in Bonifay due to his wifes frail health and he did not want her to be exposed to the unhealthy air and the Malaria caused by mosquitoes in the river town. Harriet McIntosh Waits died in 1920 before the mansion was completed and it was later occupied by James Waits and wife Maude who lived there until both of their deaths. The picture of them removing the railroad in 1927 triggered some memories for me. The virgin timber of this area was depleted and the Brown Florida Co. that had bought the business from Henderson-Waits defaulted on the payments and James Waits, the oldest son of George and Harriet Waits moved to Bonifay, bought the mansion from HendersonWaits Co and became prominent citizens of Bonnifay, After the mill closed about 1927, the spur railroads that covered many miles in the rural areas of Washington and Holmes County were taken up. I can faintly remember when the log trains came near our home. I remember the sound of the steam whistle and I remember well the wood rack where my dad provided wood to fire the steam engines that propelled the trains. In fact, supplying wood for the train originally brought my grandfathers family to Holmes County. I remember when they were taking up the tracks.This went on into the early 40s, I believe. As they took up the tracks, they often dropped the iron spikes that nailed the wooden cross ties to the steel tracks. My brothers and my sister and I would go out and pick up those spikes and other iron pieces as scrap iron. Buyers would come through the countryside buying our junk iron. The first dime I remember ever having, I earned picking up metal scrap from the log train roads. Occasionally a piece of a rail would be left and my older brothers were jubilant when theyd find one of those. We were careful to keep our little piles of junk separate and fights often broke out when we suspected one of the other siblings of stealing our junk. My dad, Hugh Wells, had so many stories of the log trains that his grandson, Emory Wells, imagined he heard their steam whistle as they chugged through our community. He wrote a song called Ghost Train. The memories of those things are all that remain and they are rapidly vanishing. HAPPY CORNERRon Clark shares 1937 pictures of Caryville 2018 Hazel Tison

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, February 21, 2018 A9 News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE „ Gov. Rick Scott on Friday demanded FBI Director Christopher Wray resign after the federal agency acknowledged it failed to follow standard proce-dures after receiving a tip in January about a man charged this week with killing 17 people at a Bro-ward County high school.Meanwhile, members of the states congressio-nal delegation are seeking U.S. House and Senate investigations into the FBIs handling of the tip, and two Republican state senators want to establish a task force that would look at violence in schools and communities.Scott called the failure of the FBI to act on a credible tip unacceptable.ŽSeventeen innocent people are dead, and acknowledging a mis-take isnt going to cut it,Ž Scott said in a prepared statement. An apology will never bring these 17 Floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain. The families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen, and an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need.ŽWe constantly promote see something, say something, and a coura-geous person did just that to the FBI,Ž Scott contin-ued. And the FBI failed to act. See something, say something is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement. The FBI director needs to resign.ŽAn FBI spokesman said Friday afternoon the agency had no comment on Scotts demand.Nikolas Cruz, 19, was arrested Wednesday after a massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Cruz was charged Thursday with 17 counts of premeditated murder, while law enforcement contin-ues to gather information about what was the second worst school shooting in U.S. history.In a rare admission, the FBI issued a news release Friday that said a person close to Cruz had contacted the agencys public access line on Jan. 5, outlining the mans gun ownership, erratic behavior, disturbing social media posts, desire to kill people and even the potential to engage in a school shooting.The news release said the information should have been assessed as a potential threat to lifeŽ and forwarded to the FBIs Miami field office, which was not done.Wray, who has been criticized by many Repub-licans for his agencys probe of Russian interfer-ence in the 2016 elections, said in the release that an investigation is underway into how the tip-line call was handled.I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to informa-tion that we receive from the public,Ž Wray said.Wray added that mem-bers of the agency have spoken to victims and families and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy.ŽU.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, a Democrat whose district includes Parkland, didnt go as far as Scott but called for Congress to con-duct investigations.This has been an excruciating few days for the Parkland community. Now, it appears that this tragedy could have been prevented,Ž Deutch, said in a prepared statement. The American people should be encouraged to say something if they see something. But we also must be assured that these tips will be processed swiftly and thoroughly so we can avoid future tragedies.ŽRubio called the FBIs failure inexcusable.ŽThe fact that the FBI is investigating this failure is not enough,Ž Rubio said. Both the House and Senate need to immediately initiate their own investigations into the FBIs protocols for ensuring tips from the public about potential killers are followed through. Lawmakers and law enforcement person-nel constantly remind the public that if you see something, say some-thing. In this tragic case, people close to the shooter said something, and our system utterly failed the families of 17 innocent souls.ŽIn the Florida Legislature, Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, and Sen. Anitere Flores, R-Miami, asked Senate President Joe Negron on Friday to establish a task force that would look into issues such as mental-health treatment, hardening soft targets such as schools and the possibility of hiring former military members and police offi-cers to patrol education grounds.We should not allow the inaction of our federal partners to be the cause of our inaction in addressing the issues of violence in our schools and our community,Ž Garcia and Flores jointly wrote in a letter. We must take a holistic approach in addressing these pressing concerns to ensure that we protect all Floridians.ŽGarcia and Flores in the past have helped block gun-rights bills in the Senate Judiciary Committee. The committee is scheduled Tuesday to hear a proposal (SB 1236) that would allow school principals or school superintendents to designate people who could carry guns during school hours.The task force request came as the Second Amendment group Florida Carry urged lawmakers to eliminate gun-free zonesŽ for people with concealedweapons licenses and to allow teachers with licenses to carry firearms while in school.It is a well-established fact from numerous such events that bad people with guns will only stop their carnage when confronted by an armed response,Ž Eric Friday, the groups general counsel, wrote in an open letter. Every second until that response occurs allows the murderer to kill and maim more innocents.ŽGov.

It includes Iron Dome, Davids Sling, and the Arrow-2 systems.By Terry Spencer, Curt Anderson and Brendan FarringtonThe Associated PressPARKLAND, Fla. „ The deadly shooting at a Florida high school has put pressure on the states Republican-controlled Legislature to consider a sweeping package of gun-control laws in a state that has resisted restrictions on firearms for decades, lawmakers said Monday.The legislative effort coalesced as 100 students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School prepared to ride buses more than 400 miles to the state capital Tuesday to urge lawmakers to act to prevent a repeat of the massacre that killed 17 students and faculty last week.The suspect, 19-yearold former student Nikolas Cruz, made his first appearance in court Monday. Wearing a prison jumpsuit, he kept his head down and didnt appear to make eye contact with the judge or others in the courtroom, though he responded briefly to someone on the defense team. A previous appearance was by a video connection from jail.His lawyers have said he will plead guilty if prose-cutors agree not to pursue the death penalty. No decision has been made on that.Soon after the shooting, several legislative leaders were taken on a tour of the school to see the damage firsthand and appeared shaken afterward.The attack seemed to overcome the resistance of some in the states leadership, which has rebuffed gun restrictions since Republicans took control of both the governors office and the Legislature in 1999. How-ever, there is still strong resistance by many in the party to any gun-control measures, leaving the fate of new restrictions unclear.Sen. Bill Galvano, a Republican and the incoming state Senate president, said the Senate was preparing a package that would include raising the age to purchase any firearm to 21, creating a waiting period for purchasing any type of firearm, banning bump stocks that can allow semi-automatic guns to spray bullets quickly and creating gun-violence restraining orders.Authorities said Cruz had a string of run-ins with school authorities that ended with his expulsion. Police were also repeatedly called to his house throughout his childhood. Cruzs lawyers said there were repeated warning signs that he was mentally unstable and potentially violent. Yet he legally purchased a semiautomatic rifle.We need to make sure everything is working and to learn from the experi-ence,Ž said Galvano, who was among those who vis-ited the school.The Senate is also considering boosting spending on mental health programs for schools and giving law-enforcement greater power to involuntarily hold someone considered a danger to themselves. The body will also look at a proposal to deputize a teacher or someone else at school so they are authorized to have a gun.Galvano said senators want to examine ways to protect schools that do not have resource officers „ often armed law enforcement officers „ on site.State House leaders and Gov. Rick Scott also are considering possible changes to firearms rules but have not given any details. Scott planned meetings Tuesday on school safety, and said he would announce propos-als on mental health issues later in the week. Still, some Republicans questioned whether addi-tional gun restrictions are the answer.I really dont want to see this politicized into a gun debate,Ž Republican Sen. Dennis Baxley.Shooting puts pressure on Fla. lawmakersMourners hug as they leave the funeral of Alaina Petty on Monday in Coral Springs, Fla.

** B2 Wednesday, February 21, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserMARIANNA Lori Franklin, RN, is Jackson Hospitals Employee of the Year 2017. Franklin serves as the Director of the hospitals Case Management Department and received the honor for fulfilling customer service ideals through her actions. Franklin was surprised to be named by the Employee Leadership Committee as the 2017 Employee of the Year. I am so proud because customer service is a big deal to me,Ž she said. I feel affirmed that I am meeting the needs of our patients.Ž She is the third person in the Case Management department during this past quarter to receive Customer Service awards. Jackson Hospital is unique in its approach to Case Management. Their work begins day one of the patients hospitalization. While they are part of the care team, they may not be as visible to the patient as the physician or nurse. 100% of Jackson Hospitals in-patients are assessed with case management keeping an eye beyond the patients hospital stay to facilitate the patients transition to home, skilled nursing, rehabilitation care, or non-facility based care. Case Managements role is to advocate for the patients social needs and transition plans upon release from the hospital. In Loris case, it means not only managing her department staff but also taking initiative where needs surface, such as transporting a patient home, locating a wound healing vacuum and then finding a medical equipment provider for a patient, and ensuring a post-surgical patient was released to a proper caregiver. Franklin is responsible for the Hospitals Case Management, Social Services, Clinical Documentation and Population Health staff. Recently, she implemented a new care model of bi-weekly, multi-disciplinary rounding on all floors. The rounding is in addition to each disciplines role in the care process. Case Management staff are in constant communication with the physician, patient and family, therapy, respiratory, and nursing personnel and allied caregivers. Franklins role was expanded to Accountable Care Organization Champion (ACO) a few years ago. Part of an innovative approach to care, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid created a new program aimed at population health management, cost reduction, and improved patient experience to reduce unnecessary or duplicative hospital readmissions, or in other words, to make hospitals and physicians accountableŽ for recurring hospitalizations. Franklin champions the best performer Jackson Hospital and its medical staff members … of the multi-hospital Deep South ACO. Lori, her Case Management department, and ACO, report to Hospital CFO Kevin Rovito. Lori is a tremendous asset to Jackson Hospital,Ž said Rovito .ŽShe continues to work with the medical staff, nursing, and administration to develop a teamwork approachƒ.I cannot imagine success without Lori Franklin.Ž Jackson Hospitals customer service ideals are outlined in its program called Give em the Pickle.Ž The Hospitals customized program with video titled Whats your Pickle?Ž with Bob Farrell, produced by Media Partners’, is implemented by Chief Nursing Officer Robbin Catt Pumphrey. Because of our employee-focused customer service efforts, Jackson Hospital is ranked in the top 16% in customer service nationally according to HealthStream Research,Ž says Pumphrey. Patients, visitors, and colleagues submit nominations of staff from whom they received superior customer service. Each month a PickleŽ luncheon is held to recognize the top nominees. During the exclusive celebration with Administration, each participant is served a specially prepared meal by members of the Hospitals Employee Leadership Council.Franklin is Jackson Hospitals Employee of the Year 2017Jackson Hospital Employee of the Year 2017 Lori Franklin, RN. By Carlo PiovanoThe Associated PressLONDON „ Latvias top banking official, a key member of the Euro-pean Central Bank, has been accused by local bank Norvik of seeking kickbacks, trying to launder Russian money and retaliating against the bank when it refused to play by the rules of the game.Ž In a high-stakes drama for the tiny Baltic country, Ilmars Rimsevics was detained Saturday by Latvian anti-corruption authorities and questioned for hours into the night. State TV showed him walking free on Monday, without charges, though he is still being investigated for suspected bribery.Norvik bank has filed an international legal complaint against Latvia in which it alleges that a Senior Latvian OfficialŽ repeatedly sought to extort monetary bribes,Ž and threatened the bank when its owner and chair-man, Grigory Guselnikov, refused to pay up.The high-level official mentioned in our request for arbitration is Rimsevics,Ž Norviks CEO, Oliver Bramwell, told The Associated Press. Gusel-nikov confirmed that it was Rimsevics.Rimsevics lawyer told Latvian TV that he promises to provide more information about the case on Tuesday. The ECB declined to comment on Rimsevics status.The threat of criminal charges against the man who has been at the top of the countrys banking sector since 1992, in the wake of the Soviet collapse, has plunged the small Baltic nation into turmoil.Rimsevics detention is particularly sensitive as he sits on the top pol-icy-making council of the ECB, Europes most pow-erful financial institution, and is privy to the state secrets of Latvia, NATO and the European Union.Any connections to money laundering would raise concerns of the risk of blackmail from Russias secret services or orga-nized crime, and come at a time when Latvian secu-rity services warn that Russia is actively trying to obtain state secrets from Latvian officials to weaken the European Union and United States.Guselnikov said he first met Rimsevics in 2015 after he was introduced to a man called Renars Kokins, who was said to know the countrys legal and political landscape well. Kokins invited Guselnikov to a meeting in a large villa in the suburbs of the capital. Soon after Guselnikov got there, another man arrived, on foot, and entered without knock-ing: it was Rimsevics.He was brief and to the point. He told Guselnikov he could help him because the nations financial reg-ulator was loyal to him personally. All he had to do was cooperateŽ with Kokins, Guselnikov recalled.Rimsevics left 10 minutes later and Kokins sat Guselnikov down at a table. He pulled a pen out and wrote on a piece of paper: 100,000 per month.ŽKokins did not use the word payment.Ž He explained to the banker that all Latvian banks cooperateŽ in this manner, Guselnikov says.In the following weeks, Guselnikov tried to stall but found that every time he refused to pay, his bank would get hit with new regulatory measures.Kokins did not relent, finding Guselnikov repeatedly after that. Guselnikov says he met with Kokins and Rimsevics a few more times to try to clarify his position. Rimsevics took great care to not be seen at these meetings, Guselnikov says.On one occasion, Kokins drove Guselnikov around the capital, Riga, for almost two hours before parking in front of a Chinese restaurant in the city outskirts. Kokins left the car and minutes later, Rimsevics entered it and sat behind Guselnikov, in the back seat, to speak, Guselnikov said. Another time they met in the res-taurant itself, when it was completely empty.It was a nightmare for me for years,Ž said Guselnikov, who is 41. You cant understand how to get out of this dirty environment without reputation damage.

Waukesha St. Bonifay, FL 32425 will hold a private or public auction on the contents of these units for non-payment according to Florida Statute By ZipRecruiter.comYou head into the office day after day, sit down at your desk, and power your way through your to-do list. And, while you generally enjoy what you do, youre starting to feel a little uninspired. Youre itching to feel like youre making an impact, leaving your mark, and generally accomplishing something other than surviving another eight hours of work. Heres how to make any job feel like it means more than just a paycheck. 1. Set goals Its all too easy to get wrapped up in the monotony of your dayto-day. You lose sight of the things youre accomplishing and just generally miss the forest for the trees. This is one of the many reasons that setting goals for yourself can be helpful. Instead of making you feel like youre just clocking another few hours, setting milestones and objectives for yourself will confirm that youre working toward something bigger, something important to you. So, whether your goal looks like achieving that promotion youve been chasing within the next year or finally learning to code, outline some important things you want to accomplish. 2. Get involved in new things Get involved in different things and try your hand at some new challenges. Have a conversation with your supervisor to see if you could help out in another department occasionally. Or, step up and offer to spearhead a new project. 3. Understand where you t in Oftentimes, we lose sight of how the tasks that we complete individually contribute to the overall success of our company. This is when you need to take a big step back and take a look at where you fit in. Recognizing that your office would fall apart if you werent there to handle all of those administrative tasks or that thered be almost no revenue if you werent part of promoting and marketing your employers products or services will give you a view of how truly important your contributions are. Taking a few minutes to remind yourself of the bigger picture is always a great way to solidify your understanding of how your company operates. 4. Keep your eye on the big picture Speaking of the bigger picture, when youre starting to feel as if your work lacks meaning, remind yourself of this: Every job is meaningful, because every job offers something. Whether its the ability to gain experience, refine new skills or meet new people, every job is contributing something important and valuable to your professional story and journey. Thats not something to be written off or discounted. 5. Reward yourself When is the last time you pressed pause and gave yourself the chance to celebrate your wins? Are you taking the time to recognize your successes and accomplishments, and maybe even reward yourself for a job well done? Keeping your head down and staying focused on your work is important. But, you dont want to become so obsessed that you never give yourself the opportunity to look at the things youve already achieved. Thatll only cause you to feel like youre spinning on a hamster wheel, and rolling straight toward burnout. Go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back or reward yourself with an afternoon cappuccino from your favorite corner coffee shop. Even taking a very brief break to recognize those mini milestones will make progress more apparent, which instantly makes your work feel more meaningful.Make any job feel more meaningful MCN ILLUSTRATION JOBS
