Mass casualty exercise held at VHS By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org VERNON Sirens blared, screams were heard and shots rang out as local law enforce ment and emergency personnel simulated a mass casualty inci dent at Vernon High School on Aug. 9. Main point is that weve got to be prepared for disasters, like the recent shooting in Tucson (Ariz.) or the tornadoes that hap pened in Alabama, where weve got a large amount of casual ties, said Terry Schenk, exer cise director for Disasters, Strat egies, & Ideas (DSI) Group. In a place that has few resources and a need to treat many patients, priorities must be made. The simulation featured a school bus accident resulting in multiple patients receiving care on the scene. A surprise twist was a gangrelated shooting that resulted in the injury of several students and a driver. Local law enforce ment had to think fast as they came on the scene. It was a hard decision to choose between my gut instinct to chase down the bad guy or to stay and help the injured while help arrived, said Deputy School Motion to dismiss denied in animal cruelty case By Chris Olwell Florida Freedom Newspapers A Chipley man contends that while he might be responsible for the deaths of 37 dogs, he did not kill them. But Judge Christopher Patter son denied a motion to dismiss 42 counts of felony ani mal cruelty against Ronald Ro n nie Williams on Mon day. Williams is ac cused of letting 42 greyhounds in his care die of starva tion, dehydration or asphyxia in a kennel at Ebro Greyhound Park. Thirty-seven greyhounds were dead when an investigator with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation dis covered them at Ebro on Oct. 29, 2010. Another ve dogs were alive among the decaying remains of the dead. Three of the surviving animals had duct tape wrapped around their necks so tightly they were gasping for air when they were dis covered, ofcials said. There was also duct tape wrapped around the neck of one of the dead dogs. Deputy Public Defender Floyd Grifth led a motion to dismiss the charges. In the motion, Grifth argued that, in the case of the ani mals with necks not wrapped in duct tape, whatever crime that oc curred was only a misdemeanor because it was an act of omission rather than commission. As for the dogs with the tape around their necks, Floyd wrote there is no evi dence Williams was responsible. Essentially, the motion argued Williams didnt do anything to kill the dogs; they died as a result of what he allegedly didnt do. If Wil liams had shot the dogs, he would be guilty of felony animal cruelty because he would have acted in tentionally. Merely depriving the animals of necessary food, water or shelter until they die is only a rst-degree misdemeanor, Floyd argued. In the states response to the motion, Assistant State Attorney Erin Oliver wrote there was evi dence Williams applied the duct tape. Williams admitted to being custodian of the animals and was Ofcers at the Charles Bode Mass Casualty Incident Exercise seek a shooter who wounded a student at Vernon High School.

I am working on a project to help our students, Cook said. With the economy the way it is, many of our families are struggling to provide for their families. I have had several incidents where parents are not going to be able to supply new school clothes for their children. Joining the effort are Goodys, Bealls, Cato and Walmart. The stores will provide new clothes for as many of our students as possible, but donations also are sought from the general public. A number of area churches are joining the collection effort as well. So are members of the Washington County School Board. Donation boxes have been placed at the Washington County Schools District Ofce in Chipley. Pickup of clothing is set for Saturday, Aug. 20, starting at 10 a.m. at the Old Chipley High School gym on Second Avenue and is available for Washington County residents only. Documents from the Florida Department of Children and Families will be needed to pick up items. A parent or guardian must accompany students. More information is available by calling 638-6222.

In addition, 4-H provides summer day camps at various locations in the county, multiple 4-H programs that are inclassroom to augment the school curriculum, and a special program sponsored by Tropicana to encourage training and experience in public speaking. A major event annually is the Washington County Youth Fair, which draws thousands of exhibits from students. 4-H Camp Timpoochee offers weekly in-residence programs. The primary programs are: Livestock: raise and show livestock of all types; must be 8 or older. Rabbit Wranglers: dedicated to just rabbits as pets or for competitive showing. Sure Shorts Skeet & Trap: competitive and recreational shotgun shooting; must be 11 or older. Top Knocks Archery: competitive and recreational bow and arrow; must be 8 or older. Sew Crazy: intermediate and advanced sewing skills for community service projects. Florida Fire Ants: a general interest group for home-school students. Project Challenge: a program with the Washington County schools for gifted students. 4 Teen: leadership training for individuals and teams; must be 13 or older. While several of the club programs offer opportunities to compete at county, state and national levels, one of the most individual activities is the Tropicana Public Speaking competition, which depends upon the presenters interests, current events and research skills to prepare an interesting presentation using public speaking skills. Preparing for the competition is extensive and comprehensive, and Washington County has had winners at the county, state and national competition. Gabbie Farrar, a two-time winner in the Tropicana county/state levels, presented her speech about the uses for hair spray, which she referred to as a hairraising experience when used for diverse purposes other than holding hair in place. She used humor to evoke laughter from Kiwanians at several points and was energetic and creative in delivering her thoughts about several uses for hair spray, such as stopping bugs, holding zippers closed and repelling unwanted advances by others.

ChipleyKiwanis.com Eglin soldier among killed in Chinook downing By Mona Moore Florida Freedom Newspapers MAUI, Hawaii It wasnt such a surprise when Kraig Vickers decided to become an explosive ordnance dis posal technician. He loved playing with recrackers as a young lad and loved to see things blow up, his oldest brother, Robert Vickers Jr., said in an email to the Northwest Florida Daily News from Hawaii on Wednesday. Kraig, 36, was one of 30 Americans killed when a Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan last Saturday. He trained to be a naval EOD technician at Eglin Air Force Bases Navy EOD School in the late 1990s. During his training, Kraig used to call his brother with stories of the explosives he was learning to dismantle. At rst he wanted to be a Navy SEAL. Explosives got more of his attention, and he loved the mental challenge that it had, Rob ert said. He embraced the training and classes the school had to offer, as he was always looking for a new challenge to conquer. Fort Walton Beach didnt stand a chance against Kraigs hometown on Maui in Hawaii, but he had noth ing but nice things to say about the city and his life here. From what I can re member, he loved Florida and the location the school was at. It almost, but not quite, reminded him of home, Robert said. He went out and bought the family Florida State cloth ing and merchandise. Robert said Kraig was a God-fearing Christian. He described him as a lov ing, caring and nurturing husband, son, father and brother. He would literally give you not just the shirt off his back, but whatever last bills he had in his pocket, Robert said. Kraig was the third of ve Vickers children. He has family on Oahu and Maui in Hawaii and on the mainland. The last time Kraig and Robert were together was at their youngest brother Vances wedding two years ago. In addition to his parents and four siblings, Kraig is survived by his wife, Nani, and three children, 18-yearold daughter Makahea, 7-year-old son KalaI and 4-year-old Malie. He and his family lived in Virginia Beach, Va. Some of Roberts best memories of his brother were from his high school days. Kraig and his siblings always were a competitive bunch. They even raced to see who could eat the fastest. Kraig carried that com petitive attitude into high school sports. He was a wrestler and linebacker on the football team. He played with such ferociousness and violence like a Ray Lewis but with a demeanor of Tony Romo, Robert said. He was a prankster and a gra cious person. Kraigs funeral services are still in the works. We dont know when Kraig will be coming home yet, Robert said. Kraig was a surfer and paddleboarder, and friends in Virginia Beach celebrat ed his life Monday with a surfer tradition. They paddled their boards into the Atlantic, formed a large circle and prayed for him. in exclusive [sic] possession of the kennel. Even if the evidence is only circumstantial, it should be sufcient to withstand the motion to dismiss, she argued. If the states evidence is all cir cumstantial, whether it excludes all reasonable hypotheses of innocence may only be decided at trial, after all the evidence has been presented, she wrote. Patterson ruled on the motion without hearing oral arguments Monday because the facts were in dispute. I do nd that there are material and disputed facts that do exist ... and the court is required by law to deny your motion to dismiss, Mr. Williams, at this time, Patterson said. Patterson also ordered a subpoena for Williams to obtain records from the veterinarians who examined the animals. GREYHOUNDS from page A1 Resource Ofcer Daryl White. Patient transportation was simu lated to allow ambulances, rescue squads and helicopters to work in a coordinated effort. It was a great learning experi ence, said Steven Yates, a paramed ic with Washington County Emer gency Medical Services. All of the emergency management services have a great working relationship with one another. Yates said it helps when working in a small county to know those who work with EMS, nurses, the media and law enforcement. It helps us to better serve the cit izens of the great Washington Coun ty, said Shawn Boyett, a Washington County paramedic. Schenk said that in mass casualty incidents, its good for all of the lo cal agencies to be familiar with one another. One of the things is getting ev eryone together at one location and getting to know one another, Schenk said. This helps create a bond of trust, and exercises run more smoothly with that level of trust. Simulated patients were even presented at Northwest Florida Community Hospital, where hospital personnel could practice their plans for a mass casualty incident. Agencies that participated in the exercise included Washington Coun ty Emergency Management, Wash ington County EMS, the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce, the Wash ington County School District, the Washington County 911 Center, Ver non High School, re departments, Northwest Florida Community Hos pital, the American Red Cross and AIRHeart air ambulance service. We depend on these people in emergency management and law enforcement, and these exercises make us a better service to our com munity in times of need, said Roger Dale Hagan, emergency services di rector. This lets us know weve got people ready to go in the unfortunate case of a real-world event. Washington Countys Emergency Management Department secured funding to host the event. Schenk and the DSI team evaluated participants to identify strengths and weaknesses during the exercise. Evaluator ndings from the Charles Bode MCI (Mass Casualty Incident) Exercise will be used as a learning tool for improvement, said Lynne Abel, FPEM emergency man agement coordinator for Washington County. VHS Principal Brian Riviere re quested that a full emergency re sponse exercise be held at VHS and named it the Charles Bode MCI Ex ercise in honor of Bode, who recent ly retired from Washington District Schools after a decade of teaching at VHS. Bode was devoted to teaching science and supporting the students who were fortunate enough to call him their teacher, Abel said. Linda A. Podojil once said, Teaching is not a profession, its a passion. Without your passion and dedication, our childrens future would resemble a sunset instead of a sunrise. Your days are long and often difcult. Thrive on your passion, and enhance our worlds tomorrow. With his in fectious smile, opinionated insight and entertaining shirt collection, Mr. Bode was an example of this daily at VHS.

Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, August 13, 2011 By Pat Kelly Florida Freedom Newspapers WEST BAY Though it might seem like the red-headed stepchild of the airport, a sort of lastminute add-on, it really is more like the multital ented cousin your par ents adopted, the one who sometimes makes you feel inadequate. The off-site covered parking facility near the entrance of the Northwest Florida Beaches Interna tional Airport has been open only 2 months, but it already is operating at 50 percent capacity weekto-week for services not offered at the airports noncovered parking and at roughly the same per-day price. The private facility, called CAP (Covered Air port Parking), operates separately from the airport and its noncovered park ing, but general manager Sterling Scott said the two outts work in tandem, just offering different services. The multimillion-dol lar, 305-space facility that opened May 23 is located about a mile from the air port terminal and has airconditioned shuttles op erating around the clock, Scott said. Most customers never experience more than a threeto four-min ute wait. The private parking area is not afliated with the air port, but Airport Authority board members agreed in December to offer off-site parking permits for 10 per cent of gross revenue. The shuttles also offer TV ser vice and a free newspaper for the ight, Scott said. One shuttle driver, Pan ama City Beach resident Pamela Roberson, said she enjoys interacting with her passengers, some of whom might journey overseas, such as to Russia or Scot land, she said. I love listening to all their travels, she said. One local couple who fre quently trek to Las Vegas often bring back casino to kens for her. I love this company, she said, adding that she has operated all shifts, in cluding midnight to 4 a.m., and often will scour the parking lot for pieces of lit ter in her zeal for the job. Because of the unex pectedly high passenger trafc since the airport opened May 23, 2010, the airport has expanded its non-covered long-term parking by 1,000 spaces. As the airport prospers, CAP also will prosper, Scott said. There is no competi tion, no tension there. We are a partnership, he said. I am happy they are ex panding. It just shows that the airport is growing. We offer a different service for the traveler, thats all. Those services include shuttle drivers who carry baggage from vehicle to shuttle and straight to the airline check-in counter, and then vice-versa on a trip home. On the way out of the CAP gate, every pas senger in each vehicle is offered an ice-cold bottle of water. There is no searching for a parking spot, no lug ging bags from the lot to the terminal. The uniformed shuttle drivers take care of everything, Scott said. At CAP, a St. Joe com pany, the cost is $10 per day, plus tax, for covered parking with benets, com pared to $11 per day for short-term and $9 per day for long-term uncovered parking at the airport, Scott said. All military personnel get a 10 percent discount, and anyone can get the same discount by printing out a coupon from the com pany website, www.cov eredairportparking.com. Here, we are very cus tomer service-oriented, Scott said. We try to take some of the tension out of travel. I think we are help ing customers have a bet ter experience when they travel. Scott said CAPs 15 employees, including him, show their dedication by giving extra attention to the cleanliness and groom ing of the facilitys shuttles, landscaped grounds and personal appearance. The facilitys canopy cover is rated for wind speeds of 90 miles per hour, Scott said, equal to the upper range of a Category 1 hurricane. Scott related a story that, though rare, illustrat ed CAPs advantages for the weary traveler, he said. A plane was late and didnt arrive until 2 a.m., long af ter most airport employees had gone home. With a simple call, a CAP customer was whisked away from the terminal, helped into his vehicle and headed back home within minutes, while other dis embarking passengers had to fend for themselves. We try to make air trav el as painless as possible, Scott said. ENROLL TODAY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE! WASHINGTON-HOLMES TECHNICAL CENTER 757 HOYT STREET CHIPLEY, FL WWW.WHTC.US NEW STUDENTS MAY REGISTER THROUGH AUGUST 20 CLASSES START AUGUST 22nd For More Information, Call Student Services at 850-638-1180, ext. 317 TALLAHASSEE (AP) Gov. Rick Scott, a critic of the federal health care overhaul, is paying less than $400 a year for health in surance for himself and his wife. Though Scott is accepting no salary for his job as governor, the multimillion aire and former hospital chain executive chose to enroll in the taxpayer-subsidized health insurance plan offered by the state of Florida. Scott is among nearly 32,000 people in state government who pay relatively low health insurance premiums. Its a perk that is available to high-ranking state ofcials, including those in top management at all state agencies. Nearly all 160 state legisla tors are also enrolled in the program that costs just $8.34 a month for individual cov erage and $30 a month for family coverage. Brian Burgess, a spokesman for Scott, conrmed the governor and his wife are enrolled in the state health insurance plan but refused to discuss why Scott signed up. He called the governors health care cover age private matters. The health insurance coverage provided to Scott used to be free for top state ofcials until 2010. Rank-and-le state workers pay $50 a month for individual coverage and $180 a month for family coverage. Mar ried couples working in state government also pay the same amount as Scott and legislators. Florida has one of the highest unin sured rates in the nation, according to data released last year by the U.S. Census. Scott and other Republicans have been very crit ical of the health care overhaul signed by President Barack Obama that is intended to increase the number of Americans with access to health insurance. Before he ran for governor, Scott ran a group called Con servatives for Patients Rights that ran television ads criticizing the health care overhaul. Florida is one of more than 20 states suing to have the health care overhaul declared unconstitutional. In the last few months, Republicans in Florida have re jected millions in federal aid that is tied to the health care overhaul. Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston, said Scott is entitled to enroll in the state health insur ance plan. But she said he shouldnt be ghting to keep other Floridians from get ting access to health insurance coverage. I wish every Floridian had the same op portunity, Rich said. Rich is one of 40 state senators who are enrolled in the state health insurance plan. A spokeswoman for the Florida House con rmed that 112 out of 120 House members also are covered by the state. Many state legislators have acknowledged that they en rolled in the state plan because it is cheaper than obtaining coverage elsewhere. The state is projected to spend $2 billion during its current budget year to provide health insurance coverage. Most of the money spent on state worker health insur ance coverage comes from taxpayers and not employee premiums. The governor earlier this year asked lawmakers to approve an overhaul of the states health insurance program that would force all employees to pay the same premium amount and to cap the amount of health insurance coverage provided to state workers. But the plan was not adopted by the Republican-controlled Legislature. A helicopter takes off from Vernon High School during a mass casualty exercise on Tuesday.

Also ONLINE You know many of the differences of opinion I have had with Governor Rick Scott. In this very space I have noted he is the least poplar governor in Florida history, and I was quick to tell you when he was the least popular governor in the country, according to polls. But I have never said he was lazy or idle. There is one item I have not mentioned in print that has caused a lot of comment around town: appointment to ll the vacancy left by the resignation of Bill Howell on the Washington County Board of County Commissioners. And it has been hands-down the hottest political topic since I arrived days before the end of Howells tenure. A cheap shot at Scott would have been easy and popular. It would have been easy to brand him lazy or suggest he was perniciously ignoring Washington County. After all, that vacancy lasted for months, during which time every few days rumors spread about Hulan Carter. I was told he was appointed, by my count, nearly two dozen bogus times. I was even told he was secretly sworn in (though what that would accomplish was unclear to the woman who called me). In fact, poor Hulans family Bible was worn out by him raising his hand over it. Every time, like I do with any tip I get, I ran it to earth. No, the Governors Press Ofce representative and a friend in the Governors Ofce of Appointments would sigh, not yet. Truth is, governors, particularly new or relatively new ones, have thousands of appointments to get through. And each one, if youre prudent, needs background checks. No, Gov. Scott has not been lazy, I dont think. But Washington County has reason to celebrate a full commission nally. Now, I am well aware that Commissioner Carter has detractors and, too, he already has eight years on-the-job experience. But, while reserving judgment for a while, I think we should all thank him for his willingness to serve. And we should thank Gov. Scott for getting around to us. Finally, in all honesty, since I mentioned the governors poll numbers, I should report they are up a bit. Still in the basement, but at least on the stairs. By Gary Smith President & CEO PowerSouth Energy Cooperative Editors note: The following opinion was submitted to The News for publication and is intended to express the writers opinion and does not necessarily represent the views of The News, its publisher or staff. My great-grandfather and grandfather were known as the great shermen of Alcorn County, Miss. During my great-grandfathers life, they shed almost every Wednesday afternoon when Corinths businesses closed. They also shed on weekends. After my great-grandfather died, my grandfather recruited other shing partners, and they shed the same schedule. My grandfather shed until he retired, after which he quit claiming he was too busy to sh. They would eat the sh they caught and gave some away to friends and families. I certainly ate a lot of the sh they caught when I was young. I started shing as a teenager, although I dont remember ever shing with my grandfather. I think shing was a much too serious pastime for him to have grandchildren along. My friends and I mainly shed Pickwick Lake on the Tennessee River and caught bream, small mouth bass and catsh. We ate almost all the sh we caught. I remember the warnings and the signs in the 1970s about the dangers of eating sh because of high mercury levels. There was even a ban on eating sh from Pickwick because of the mercury levels in the sh. We ate the sh we caught anyway. We all know mercury is the silver stuff in thermometers, and my mother told me not to bite the thermometer or the mercury would harm me. Mercury is also found naturally in many places. It is embedded in rock, is in seawater, is vaporized in the air and is found in most substances on the earth, including coal. When coal is burned in power plants, the mercury that is not captured in scrubbers and other environmental equipment is released into the atmosphere, where it eventually drops into the oceans and is eaten by small sh that are eaten by bigger sh and ultimately end up on your plate. The EPA soon will pass regulations to limit the amount of mercury coal-red power plants can emit. EPA estimates compliance with the rule will cost electric utilities and ultimately you through your electric bill $10.9 billion. EPAs own statistics show that emission of SO2 fell 71 percent from 1980 to 2010, from a high of more than 17 million tons to just over 5 million VERNON EMERGENCY EXERCISE GALLERY Busy governor nally acts for us STEVE LINER Managing Editor HA VE SOMETHING TO SA Y?

Emission of NOx fell almost as much, from a 1997 high of 6 million tons to just 2 million tons in 2010, for a total reduction of 66 percentduring that nearly decade-and-a-half stretch. Looking at even more recent EPA gures, SO2 emission has been cut in half since 2005 and NOx has fallen by nearly as much at 45 percent. From the publicity, you would think that once the mercury reductions on coal-red power plants are in place we will all be safe from the ravages of mercury and can eat our sh without worry. After all, U.S. coal-red power plants emit around 48 tons of mercury a year, which sounds like a lot. However, forest res in the U.S. emit around 44 tons of mercury a year, volcanoes and geysers release about 10,000 tons of mercury a year, and cremation of bodies in the U.S. releases around 26 tons of mercury a year. Finally, Chinese coal-red plants release about 400 tons of mercury a year. Dr. Willie Soon, a professor of Natural Science at Harvard University, estimates that U.S. coal-red power plants contribute less than 0.5 percent of the mercury released into the atmosphere each year. He reasons that imposing billions of dollars of added expense on the nations people and economy (remember that almost all additional electric utility costs are passed on to consumers in rates) will do nothing for the remaining 99.5 percent of the mercury emitted into the atmosphere each year. Federal regulation has become an extremely signicant and destabilizing factor in the planning and operation of our power plants in the future. PowerSouth takes its responsibility as a corporate citizen extremely seriously and is committed to balancing business goals with the environmental, social and economic needs of the communities it serves. In 2008 PowerSouth invested more than $317 million in environmental air quality improvements to comply with the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR). PowerSouth installed scrubbers on all three of the units at our coal-red power plant to reduce sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, added Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCRs) to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and reduced our mercury emissions. SCRs in a coal-red power plant works much like an automobiles catalytic converter, which reduces emissions produced by the cars internal combustion engine. Prior to exiting the cars tailpipe, exhaust gasses pass through the catalytic converter, where a chemical reaction takes place and the unburned hydrocarbons are eliminated. At a power plant, NOx emissions pass through the SCR catalyst and react with ammonia, converting it into elemental nitrogen and water. Our scrubbers do a good job capturing mercury, and it appears our coal-red power plants will comply with the coming EPA regulations as we understand them today. We will do more to comply with EPAs regulations on mercury emissions if we are required to do so. However, you should not be fooled into thinking that coal-red power plants are the root of all environmental evil and that if we could only get our electricity from green sources all would be environmentally well with earth. Huge amounts of mercury will continue to be released from other sources. If the EPA would spend more time structuring approaches that balance environmental and economic interests our country, our economy and our people would be much better off. It is clear that EPA remains rmly committed to its position. It is also clear that a number of lawmakers are committed to forcing EPA to stand down. As we look toward the future, it is imperative that PowerSouth maintain a balanced portfolio of power supply resources and keep a watchful eye on legislative and regulatory developments that could hinder our mission to provide affordable, reliable energy to consumers. PowerSouth believes that energy providers must be active participants when seeking solutions for the future. We support initiatives that maintain our ability to provide the average family the reliable, affordable energy they expect. Mercury is also found naturally in many places. It is embedded in rock, is in seawater, is vaporized in the air and is found in most substances on the earth, including coal. When coal is burned in power plants, the mercury that is not captured in scrubbers and other environmental equipment is released into the atmosphere, where it eventually drops into the oceans and is eaten by small fish that are eaten by bigger fish and ultimately end up on your plate.
