The library was closed as county ofcials await tests to show what kind of mold is present and develop a strat egy for dealing with it. In the meantime, pro grams like the summer reading program for chil dren are continuing at the Library Annex, according to Library Services Director Susan Harris. Testing on the main branch was done July 22, and assessments were due back from the laborato ry within the next few days, she said. It seems apparent the problem was created by the loss of one of the librarys air conditioning units, Har ris said. Inspection showed lightning struck the unit with the damage went unno ticed for an unknown period of time. Books in one section of the library have been affect ed and, when the go ahead is given, Harris said, staff will clean those books that can be salvaged and dispose of any too damaged to retain. Harris informed the Board of County Commis sioners costs for repairs could be more than the li brary budget could absorb. Commissioners indicated action would be taken when test results are returned to create a plan of action and budget for any repairs. In the meantime, they instruct ed library personnel to work from the annex. At the meeting the board set the countys millage rate that establishes taxes for property owners for the year and set hearings on the countys budget. Action to replace the countys Aging 911 Emer gency Call System was tabled for further study by a unanimous vote of the com mission. The apparent low bid for the new system was $263,672. This amount, to be borne by a grant, would re place the entire system, the board was told. The board was advised they are near ing the time limit set by the state for the systems soft ware ve years. In addi tion, the contract, if award ed, would provide all local technical support. We can have the sys tem repaired and operating again within 15 minutes, Commission faces crowded agenda By Steve Liner Managing Editor Both Holmes and Washing ton counties have moved in the last week to establish mill age rates. Already taking ac tion were the Holmes County Commission, the Washington County Commission and the Holmes County School Board. In each case, millage repre sents a direct continuation of the tax rate charged to prop erty owners for the current fiscal year. Holmes and Washington county governments are con tinuing at the same millage rate, though county commis sioners in each county have warned that this action means county budgets will be leaner and could even lead to reduc tions in county personnel. I got to tell you, were down to bologna at the County Jail, Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock told commis sioners as they set that coun tys rate. I dont want to tax people more either, but just know I have the responsibility to provide for the public safety, so there is little or nothing I can cut. In Washington County, com missioners said the continued millage could mean more than $1 million in budget reductions in the coming fiscal year. At its meeting Monday, the Holmes County School Board passed a millage rate only fractionally over the states required local effort. The to tal millage will be 6.226, 5.478 of which is required by state funding formula. The Holmes County rate is set at 9.665 while the Wash ington County rate was estab lished at 8.9195. The counties will set a round of public hearings on their budgets following a se ries of workshops to hammer out details. Millage is the base rate on which property taxes are based and represent taxes of $1 per $1,000 in property val ue, according to Washington County Property Appraiser Gil Carter.

The board also heard a proposal to install sidewalks at Bonifay Elementary School. Evan McAllister was praised by the commission for his work toward estab lishing the project to con struct the sidewalks. Ive never seen anyone work this hard for our coun ty as you have, said Com missioner Jim King. It all hinges on the safety of our children, McAllister said. When the high school lets out, Ive seen students walking in the road. McAllister said once the contracts for the design portion of the project are completed, the work will be scheduled. The project rep resents the work of McAl lister and the Community Trafc Safety Team. Also accepted were bids for asphalt. The bids, rang ing upward of $1 million, will be reviewed and acted on following staff recommenda tions are received. County Attorney Jeff Goodman re minded the commission that the asphalt contract was for material used and that they would not be obligated to spend the full contract amount. The county changed the company responsible for re habilitation of local housing upon the resignation of their former provider. The county has 12 months to obligate these funds under provi sions of the state grant.

Tech center offers EMT course The Associated Press Oil prices fell near $94 a barrel Tuesday in Europe as worries over the U.S. econo my overshadowed a deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, a move that avoids the risk of a debt default. By early afternoon in Europe, benchmark oil for September delivery was down 80 cents at $94.09 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercan tile Exchange. Crude fell 81 cents to settle at $94.89 on Monday. In London, Brent crude was down 45 cents at $116.36 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange. The threat of U.S. insol vency would appear to have been averted, but the worry now is the countrys econo my, said analysts at Com merzbank in Frankfurt. A jump in the oil price Monday sparked by an agreement to raise the U.S. debt limit and cut spending zzled as traders focused in on a particularly weak manufacturing survey. The Institute for Supply Manage ment said manufacturing ac tivity in the U.S. barely grew in July, stoking fears that the worlds largest economy might be heading back to re cession. The soft patch is getting patchier still, HSBC econo mist Frederic Neumann said. The message from the U.S. and Europe is that the industrial sector has decel erated further. The U.S. economy is al ready growing fairly slowly. Figures last week showed that it grew at an annualized 1.3 percent in the second quarter. First quarter growth was also revised down to 0.4 percent from 1.9 percent. After seeing the horrible GDP number and revision last week, there are a lot more concerns about where this economy is headed, energy analyst and trader Blue Ocean Brokerage said in a report. Markets are also on the watch for the latest reports on U.S. stockpiles of crude and rened products. Data for the week ending Oct. 1 is expected to show builds of 2 million barrels in crude oil stocks and a rise of 350,000 barrels in gaso line stocks, according to a survey of analysts by Platts, the energy information arm of McGraw-Hill Cos. The American Petro leum Institute will release its report on oil stocks later Tuesday, while the report from the Energy Depart ments Energy Information Administration the mar ket benchmark will be out on Wednesday. Traders will try to nd solace in this weeks DOE statistics, but they might not nd any, U.S. energy consultant Cameron Ha nover said in a report. The picture is starting to be come more bearish, with the economy looking quite weak. Oil prices fall as U.S. economy weakens MIAMI BEACH (AP) Roughly 7.5 tons of cocaine seized from a submarine-like craft off the Caribbean coast of Honduras is being unloaded in South Florida. Crew members aboard a U.S. Coast Guard cutter will unload the drugs Tuesday at the Coast Guards Miami Beach base. Ofcials say the cocaine is worth about $180 million. Coast Guard and U.S. Customs and Border Protection crews located the semi-submers ible vessel July 13 near Honduras border with Nicaragua. The sub sank during the interdiction. An FBI dive team recovered the drugs on board after the Coast Guard found the sunken vessel last week. Five crew members aboard the sub were taken into custody before it sank. Semi-submersible crafts are regularly used to smuggle drugs along Central Americas Pa cic Coast. AP Drugs conscated off Honduras by U.S. law enforcement ofcials. Coast Guard seizes cocaine ODD, W.Va. (AP) For rural America, the post office is more than a convenient place to mail letters. Its income where jobs are scarce, a place to pay the bills and at times, a neighborhood spot to socialize. From Alaska to Maine, residents in rural areas are holding their collec tive breath after the finan cially troubled U.S. Postal Service said this week it was considering closing one in 10 of its retail out lets to save money. The post office in the rural West Virginia town of Odd is one of more than 3,600 local offices, branch es and stations that could be on the chopping block. Residents there say get ting by would be difficult without it. I dont have no car, said 59-year-old Betty Ann Whittaker, who lives on Social Security and needs to be close to home because she cares for her mentally disabled siblings and nephews. Her rundown home at the foot of a mountainside is just a short walk away from the Odd Post Office. Other Americans who dont drive, or are on a fixed income like Whit taker, would face a simi lar dilemma. In West Vir ginia, there are 150 offices on the list. Only six other states Texas, Pennsyl vania, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa and Missouri have more outlets under con sideration for possible clo sure. In Odd, many of the 800 residents have mail boxes at the post office in part because mail theft is a big concern. Those without checking accounts also buy money orders at the post office to pay their bills. Whittaker does this regularly. The nearest full-service bank is 10 to 20 miles away. Christine Wood lives in an apartment attached to the post office and has a mailbox there. Her family owns the building and has been renting the office space to the Postal Ser vice for decades. The rent helps her pay the bills. The nearest post of fice, in Ghent, is about five miles away. The Postal Service, which has been losing money as customers in creasingly use the Inter net to do business instead, said space in local stores, libraries and government offices might be used to of fer postal services in some areas where post offices are ultimately closed. But that is little com fort to worried residents. The Postal Service op erates 31,871 retail out lets across the country. In recent years, business has declined sharply. The agency lost $8 billion last year. Once an office is se lected for a review, people served by that office will have 60 days to file their comments. If an office is to be closed, they will be able to appeal. Postal woes felt most in rural areas

The Associated Press The cost of prescription medi cines used by millions of people ev ery day is about to plummet. The next 14 months will bring generic versions of seven of the worlds 20 best-selling drugs, in cluding the top two: Cholesterol ghter Lipitor and blood thinner Plavix. The magnitude of this wave of expiring drugs patents is unprec edented. Between now and 2016, blockbusters with about $255 billion in global annual sales will go off pat ent, notes EvaluatePharma Ltd., a London research rm. Generic competition will decimate sales of the brand-name drugs and slash the cost to patients and companies that provide health benets. Top drugs getting generic com petition by September 2012 are taken by millions every day: Lipitor alone is taken by about 4.3 million Americans and Plavix by 1.4 mil lion. Generic versions of big-selling drugs for blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, depression, high triglyc erides, HIV and bipolar disorder also are coming by then. The ood of generics will con tinue for the next decade or so, as about 120 brand-name prescrip tion drugs lose market exclusivity, according to prescription benets manager Medco Health Solutions Inc. My estimation is at least 15 percent of the population is cur rently using one of the drugs whose patents will expire in 2011 or 2012, says Joel Owerbach, chief pharma cy ofcer for Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, which serves most of upstate New York. Those patients, along with busi nesses and taxpayers who help pay for prescription drugs through cor porate and government prescrip tion plans, collectively will save a fortune. Thats because generic drugs typically cost 20 percent to 80 percent less than the brand names. Doctors hope the lower prices will signicantly reduce the num ber of people jeopardizing their health because they cant afford medicines they need.

Bareeld, Publisher Steve Liner, Managing Editor Cameron Everett, Production Supervisor Brad Goodyear, Composition Supervisor Home delivery subscribers may be charged a higher rate for holiday editions. Motels have come a long way since my rst stay in one in 1952. When we married in 1949, we went straight to our apartment in Gainesville after a stop at the Suwanee River for dinner, so I never stayed in a motel until 1952, when our son was born and we had to make several trips to New Orleans for corrective surgery. I remember staying along the gulf beaches in Mississippi in a small cabin with sulphur water. It resembled the cabins of Bonifays rst motel, The Sylvian, built by the late Bartow Saunders and named for his daughter, Sylvia. It is one of the few still remaining of its type that dotted The Old Spanish Trail (U.S. Highway 90) and other major highways across the nation. Though not called The Sylvian, it is used as small apartment rentals today. Our other local motel of that era, The Holiday, is located near the intersection of Highway 90 and 79 and operated by the Patel family. It features the single-story building/multiple units style of its day. The Patels have updated the exterior to give it an exotic look. It was owned and operated by Leon and Gladys Smith in the 1960s. The Tivoli Inn on Highway 79 south has recently closed, but it was the rst two-story motel building here and was built by the Fleming/Young family. It started as a Best Western franchise but over the years was privately owned. The new Best Western just south of the Tivoli is a 3-star facility owned by the Patel family. The general manager is Sam Patel, who also manages the Comfort Inn and Suites and one other motel in Chipley. You may have met Matt, the marketing manager, who has made an attempt to personally visit all local businesses. I visited the lobby and front desk and had a chat with the front desk manager, Sandra, who cheerfully explained some of the features of the place. One important one is the free hot breakfast every morning. In the rooms, expect full or queen beds, LCD at screen TV with HBO, Internet and WiFi access. All halls are secure, as is the fenced pool. A Business Center (meeting room) has been well used in the rst year of operation by corporate executives of Hardees, McDonalds, Burger King and other out-of-town people. Local Bar Association attorneys have used it as a meeting place. People attending church-related and music-related events have made Best Western their headquarters, including nationally known TV star Donna Douglas, who recently spoke here at a womens conference at First Assembly. A professional food distribution service has its headquarters in Bonifay, and their drivers stay at Best Western. The Business Center meeting room is available to the public for use. Sandra came to the area from Indianapolis, Indiana, after retirement form the hotel industry. Her fondest childhood memories were of the northwest Florida beaches. Through the years, she regularly visited the area, so after the death of her husband and daughter, she resolved to make this her home. Her 24-year-old son moved here with her and also works at the Best Western. She said the goal of the business is to Put Bonifay on the map. They want to become a part of the community, and to that end, they use all local utilities and services where possible. A special feature of Best Western is that they are corporate sponsors for the Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation. Employees of the hospital and Foundation members may claim special rates for their visiting guests at the new motel in Bonifay. We are proud to have them as a part of our community and welcome their presence here. Last week was a stellar, if painful, one for county government in this area. Both Holmes and Washington County commissions quietly, calmly and with sadness did something the Speaker of the U.S. House, Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate and President of the United States cannot seem to do: come to terms with money. It didnt take much discussion, and it didnt make big news even in this paper. But the county commissions took the rst step toward creating difcult budgets by setting the millage rates (the basis point for county taxes). Both counties determined they would continue the same rate. In effect, though, this will become rather signicant cuts when the counties set budgets because, in the current economy, property values are slipping. Washington County Commission Chair Joel Pate said at the commissions meeting last Thursday that this would set up a year-to-year reduction of more than $1 million for his county. Though probably a bit smaller, the same thing will happen in Holmes County. In both cases there was no fanfare, no huge discussion, no accusations, no recriminations just reality and civility. And, of course, there was courage, the reason I am writing about the topic this week. These men are our neighbors. They are businessmen and people who have cared enough about their counties to offer themselves for public service. There is little glory in what they do week in and week out to manage local affairs. But these men have been able to do what Washington cannot seem to do: take care of whats most important to be done in a timely and seemly way. Do we agree with their decisions all the time? Certainly not! You should have been with me last week in Ebro when Sheriff Bobby Haddock felt he had to speak to ensure order at the commission meeting (over the sand pit issue you see covered on the front page). Do they always do the smartest thing or take the wisest action? Probably not. But the reality is last week they quietly, civilly and courageously started the budget process by making the best decision: live within our means.

SPORTS Also ONLINE Historic vote brings Giffords to Washington W A SHINGTON (AP) The total number of votes on the historic debt-limit bill was 430. One vote was more memorable than any of the others. Seven months after she was shot in the head, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returned to the House on Monday to cast her vote. Thunderous applause and emotional hugs from her Republican and Dem ocratic colleagues greet ed her. Giffords entrance, with just minutes remain ing in the vote, surprised lawmakers and added even more drama to a high-stakes day. The Ari zona Democrat respond ed to the attention with a smile, and she mouthed thank you several times. We were just hug ging. Girl hugs, said Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. Other colleagues, surprised and joyful, made their way to greet her as she was enveloped in a cluster of Democratic lawmakers. Giffords used one hand to greet some, the other by her side. Her hair was dark and closely cropped, and she wore glasses. Her image was quite different from the one Americans saw seven months ago when she was sworn in for a third term by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. It was one of the most thrilling moments for all of us to see this real heroine return to the House, Pelosi said, and to do so at such a dramatic time. Giffords cast her vote for the bill, which passed 269-161. She is a model for the attitude that we should all have because she is tenacious, and she is re lentless in her love for America. ... You were missed and were glad to have you back, said Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas. Giffords exited the House chamber by the east door, leaning heavily on an aide as she walked with obvious difculty. Her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, accompanied her. Police had cleared a path through a mob of re porters, and Giffords did not respond to questions and greetings. Near the doorway to the House, Vice Presi dent Joe Biden greeted Giffords and marveled at her return. Shes remarkable. Will matters, Biden said in an interview. Shes the embodiment of a strong, strong, strong woman. Think about what that womans been through, and think about her determination. On Jan. 8, Giffords was shot in the head in the parking lot of a Tuc son, Ariz., grocery store while meeting with con stituents. Six people were killed, and 13 oth ers, including Giffords, were wounded. The man charged in the shooting, Jared Lee Loughner, was sent to a federal prison fa cility in Springeld, Mo., after a federal judge con cluded he was mentally incompetent to stand trial on 49 charges. In true congressional style, Giffords issued a news release after the vote the only thing typ ical in an atypical day. I have closely fol lowed the debate over our debt ceiling and have been deeply disappoint ed at whats going on in Washington, Giffords said in the statement. I strongly believe that crossing the aisle for the good of the American people is more important than party politics. I had to be here for this vote. I could not take the chance that my absence could crash our economy, she said. Giffords political fu ture remains uncertain. She has not led for reelection next year though she has money for anoth er bid, thanks to friends and colleagues who want to ensure she has the re sources necessary. Docu ments led with the Fed eral Election Commission last month show the Ari zona Democrat had more than $787,000 in the bank at the end of June. Shortly after her ap pearance, a tweet ap peared on Giffords Twit ter account: The Capitol looks beautiful and I am honored to be at work tonight. AP Gabrielle Giffords was on the oor of the House this week for the rst time since her assassination attempt in January.


Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, August 3, 2011 Generation Brady Bunch caught in the middle By Jill Pertler Special to the Times-Advertiser I grew up watching Greg, Marsha, Peter, Jan, Bobby and Cindy. Like the rest of the Brady Bunch generation, I now nd I myself at an awkward age: too old to be young and too young to be old. I guess you could say Im stuck somewhere in the middle. The middle of what Im not sure. It cant be middle age. Can it? Jan Brady would be the rst to tell us that the middle is not the most desirable place to be. She was sandwiched between ever-popular Marsha and cute-as-a-bug Cindy, leaving her in the awkward role of middle sister. Poor Jan. I dont have to worry about being anked by Marsha and Cindy. My concerns are much more expansive: I am surrounded by air. Its air thats getting heavier all the time as the gravity of gravity kicks in and my body responds accordingly. Sagging and slumping are doing their best to sneak into my everyday persona. The threats of the upper arm jiggles become more real with each passing year. Im hearing creaks and groans and theyre not coming from the furniture. When I bend over, someone in the room lets out a sigh. If I didnt know better, Id swear the noise was coming from my mouth, but that cant be possible. Even my skin is stuck in the middle. Around my eyes, I see the start of drooping and bagging worthy of a moisturizer, while other spots on my face show themselves in dire need of an acne solution. Ive heard of combination skin, but I dont think this is what the creators of the term meant. Sometimes growing older feels as awkward as when Peter Bradys voice changed on national TV or when Marsha had that thing with her nose. Perhaps its even as uncomfortable as Greg dating his mother (Florence Henderson) in real life which they did, but only once. Thank goodness. Some awkward moments need no repeating. Like the rest of us Brady-watchers, Ive seen the world (and my waistline) evolve during my lifetime. Ive witnessed new inventions like microwave ovens and curling irons. I used to think Twinkies and Wonder Bread were a food group. I remember when telephones were tethered to the wall and when you wanted to change the TV channel from The Partridge Family to Wonder Woman you had to get up off your chair to do so. The idea of a remote was, well, remote. As was the idea of growing older. It still doesnt come easy at least not for me. Id rather be thirty-something than an F-word. After you leave your thirties, you stare down the throat of being an Fword for a long time at least a couple of decades if youre lucky. Because awkward or not, theres denitely one thing worse than being in this particular stage of life: the alternative. These are wise words straight from my dad. Hes a smart guy who manages to make 80 look young. He gives good advice. Its advice I should probably heed. I guess Ill pour some more water into my half-full glass and recognize the benets of being in the middle. For instance, theres experience, insight and knowledge of awkward mistakes I dont want to repeat. And then, theres the obvious choice: Twinkies. Everyone knows the creamy middle is the best part. I think even Jan Brady would have to agree with me there.

After Floridas largest property insurance company, Citizens Property Insurance Group, proposed an average increase of nearly 430 percent, state Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, called the rate hike a kick in the gut to citizens and called for statewide hearings. Fasano wrote a letter to Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty of the Ofce of Insurance Regulation (OIR) requesting statewide customer hearings be held before Citizens recent application for increased sinkhole premiums are approved. On July 25, Citizens released its list of proposed rate hikes for its customers who carry sinkhole coverage. The average increase amounts to 443 percent statewide, but some counties will see increases of between 1,500 and 2,000 percent. In light of these almost incomprehensible rate increases, I respectfully expect that all Floridians be given the chance to have their voices heard on this issue before the Ofce of Insurance Regulation rules on the application, Fasano wrote to McCarty. Hearings held throughout the state, especially in those areas which will receive the highest rate increases, must be held before the application is given consideration. Now that Citizens has made its intentions known, Fasano believes private insurers will not be far behind. If private insurers follow Citizens lead, then Floridians will have few affordable options left if they need or want sinkhole coverage, Fasano said. It is my hope that Commissioner McCarty allows hearings to be scheduled so that those impacted will have the opportunity to say, in their own words, just how devastating these proposed premium hikes will be. The OIR has identied increased sinkhole claims as one of the factors driving up the cost of homeowners insurance rates. Insurance industry ofcials said there has been a substantial increase in the frequency of claims, and that these claims are being led outside the traditional sinkhole alley in Hernando and Pasco counties. A 2010 study showed that 11 counties in the central and southern part of Florida accounted for about 90 percent of all sinkhole claims, but, although they are rare in the Panhandle, sinkholes do occasionally occur here. A woman who drowned in Washington Countys Crystal Lake in 2004 might have slipped into a sinkhole, according to a News Herald report from the time. In 2002, a 4-foot-deep sinkhole opened in a westbound lane of U.S. 98 between Panama City Beach and Destin, closing the highway to trafc for hours. A court case in 1992 centered on a Marianna couples quest to convince their insurance company that their house was perched on a sinkhole. A jury agreed, awarding the couple $50,000 to make repairs. According to a News Herald report at the time, they werent the rst Marianna residents to complain about sinkholes. We get them every so often, John Mader, Jackson Countys emergency management director, told The News Herald in 1992. It (damage) is usually very small. It doesnt even get reported in a lot of cases. The road department will occasionally patch a hole in the road that was caused by a minor sinkhole.

Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey COLUMN Personal spending cut for 1st time in 2 yearsWAS H INGT O N (AP) Amer i cans cut their spend ing in June for the rst time in nearly two years after seeing their incomes grow by the smallest amount in nine months. The latest data offered a troubling sign for an economy that is adding few jobs and barely growing. Consumer spending dropped 0.2 percent in June, the Commerce De partment said Tuesday. It was the rst decline since September 2009. Some of the decline was the result of food and en ergy prices moderating af ter sharp increases earlier this year. When excluding spending on those items, consumer spending was at. Still, consumers also cut back on big-ticket items, such as cars and ap pliances, which help drive growth. Incomes rose 0.1 per cent, the smallest gain since September. Many people are also pocketing more of their paychecks. The personal savings rate rose to 5.4 percent of aftertax incomes, the highest level since August 2010. The data conrmed last weeks report that showed the economy expanded at an annual rate of just 1.3 percent in the spring after only 0.4 percent growth in the rst three months of the year. It also highlighted that consumer spending softened at the end of the April-June quarter, which could mean the sluggish economy is worsening. Stocks fell after the report was released. The Dow Jones industrial av erage dropped more than 100 points in morning trad ing. Broader indexes also declined. The recent run of weak economic news has made us more concerned that any rebound will be more mod est than previously looked likely, said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. High gas prices and un employment have squeezed household budgets this spring. Many Americans are cutting back on pur chases of cars, furniture, appliances and electron ics. Consumer spending is closely watched because it accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. Employers have re sponded by reducing hir ing. The economy added just 18,000 net jobs in June, the fewest in nine months. The unemployment rate rose to 9.2 percent, the highest level this year. The government issues its July employment re port Friday. Businesses are creat ing fewer jobs despite re porting strong earnings and sitting on large cash reserves. What worries me is that businesses are deriv ing their strong earnings growth through produc tivity gains, limited wage increases and foreign ac tivities, said Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic Advi sors. While that may be good for an individual rm, when most companies do that, income gains become so limited that spending and ultimately growth fades. That is the problem we are now facing. The biggest drop in spending occurred in such items as food and gaso line. Spending on such nondurable goods fell 5.5 percent, reecting price declines after spikes ear ly this year. An ination gauge tied to consumer spending dropped 0.2 per cent in June, the biggest one-month decline since September 2009. Outside of food and energy, prices were up 0.1 percent. Still, spending on du rable goods, such as autos, also fell in June 1.1 per cent. One reason for the decline may be the short age of popular car mod els in showrooms. Supply chain disruptions caused by the March earthquake in Japan have limited pro duction of auto and elec tronic parts. Many analysts are still hopeful that growth will re bound in the second half of the year. They expect auto production and sales to pick up once supply chain disruptions ease. But the turnaround may not come for a while. Manufacturers had their weakest growth in two years in July, according to the Institute for Supply Management. And gas prices remain high, even after coming down from their peak of nearly $4 a gallon in early May. The average price for a gallon was $3.70 on Tues day 14 cents higher than a month ago and almost a dollar more than the same month last year. Some economists have begun to trim their fore casts for the second half of the year. Dales and his colleagues at Capital Economics have cut their outlook for second-half growth to 2 percent, down from a previous forecast of 2.5 percent growth in the second half of this year.

OUTD OO RS | Send your Outdoors news to A Section If you got up early enough on weekends a few years back, you will surely remember a television show on Fox 28 called Bottom Time. It featured Capt. Laney T. Rinehart and his sidekick. Capt. Laney and his guest host would spin some pretty tall yarns that people who never had dived would have a hard time believing. They also would show some ne underwater footage shot on actual lm, instead of video as is done today. I had heard of Capt. Laney for some time before we met. After seeing him on Fox, I made it an emphasis to meet this man I had heard so much about for years. Capt. Laney and I had a lot in common, and we became friends almost immediately. Capt. Laney gave me a copy of his diving book, The Captains Guide to Wrecks and Reefs, which I will cherish forever. If you are new to diving or shing, I would recommend picking up this book, because I guarantee it will come in handy. It is loaded with diving and shing spots that arent readily available elsewhere. I hadnt seen Capt. Laney very much of late, but when I did, we talked diving. He even invited me to go along on a treasure hunt for gold here in Bay County. I suppose that gold never will be found, and we wont be able to make that trip because Capt. Laney died recently in a local hospital. Laney Rinehart was one of those people I wished I had met years ago. The next time you go by Captain Andersons Restaurant, take a good look at the giant ship propeller at the entrance. Capt. Laney is responsible for it being there. There is a great story that goes along with that propeller, and you can read about it in his Wrecks and Reefs. If you ever met Capt. Laney, you would probably agree with me that he was an interesting man. I will miss him, and Im sure many others will, too. On the last page of his book he ended it this way: OH, GOD. Grant us a safe journey and let us enjoy each and others company. Shorten the nights and lengthen the days of our lives. Please give us dominion over all living things, Calm the seas and allow our vessel to be aoat every morning. Our vessel is so small and thy sea is so great. In Jesus name, Amen.

By Felicia Kitzmiller News Herald Writer 522-5114 | PANAMA CITY Millions have enjoyed the sugar sand beaches and clear waters of the Emerald Coast, but far fewer have seen the attractions that wait off the coast, below the surface of the inviting waters. The Panhandle is the No. 2 most popular drive-to recreational diving location in the country, only behind the Florida Keys, dive instructor and enthusiast Danny Grizzard said. In the months following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster that devastated the economy of the Florida Panhandle, Roger Smith, an archeologist with the Florida Department of States Division of Historical Resources, said he found himself contemplating ways to help boost tourism in the struggling region. Smith decided to hone in on the regions already successful diving industry. After contacting friends in the region, an idea has begun to take shape for an interactive map and trail of Panhandle shipwrecks that will hopefully pique the publics interest and bring people back to the Panhandle. The trail likely will consist of about a dozen shipwrecks spread from Mexico Beach to Pensacola. Smith and his team are meeting with people in the dive community to take suggestions for sites and put together a list. Some of Panama Citys attractions in consideration for the trail include the SS Tarpon, a steamer used in the Spanish American War to bring troops and supplies to Cuba; the Black Bart, the Grey Ghost, and the Red Sea, all tugboats; and the Chippewa, a coastal freighter. The history of each one of these sites is very interesting, Smith said. The trail will be designed to accommodate divers with different levels of experience and will have ships at varying depths, Grizzard said. The trail will be branded as a cohesive unit, and passports, similar to those produced by the National Parks Service, will be produced to encourage people to visit each of the dive sites and check them off on their passport. Brochures and an interactive website map that can be linked to by dive shops and tourism websites hopefully will spread the word about the trail and what it has to offer, Smith said. When people think about coming to the Panhandle, they can see that theres a shipwreck trail, and hopefully itll keep them there a day or two longer, he said. So far, the response to the project has been very positive and energetic, Smith said. He wants the project to be community-based and is looking for people now who or are interested in shooting underwater video and photos of the wrecks for the project. Such contributions will enhance the quality of the marketing of the trail and will speed the project along. Smith said he wants to have the trail and its supporting materials completed by spring 2012. People interested in helping with the project can contact Smith by email at or Grizzard at Shipwreck trail might lure divers into the water Dive in P hotos courtesy of D ANNY G RIZZARD | FAMI The 143-foot Accokeek tug sinks into the Gulf in 2000, 56 years after it was launched.

SP O RT S A Section By Tim Croft Florida Freedom Newspapers The Philadelphia Phil lies provided something of a recruiting trip last week for Port St. Joes Roman Quinn. Quinn, the Phillies sec ond-round pick in Junes Major League Baseball amateur draft, spent three days in Philadelphia cour tesy of the team. He is the highest-drafted player ever to come out of Gulf County. Brian Jenkins from Port St. Joe and Bran don Jones of Wewahitchka were fthand sixth-round picks, respectively. It still hasnt really sunk in yet, not really, said Quinn, projected to become a shortstop. Quinn said during his trip to Philadelphia he got to meet and mingle with the players, meet Manager Charlie Manual and even get on the eld for some batting practice and to eld a few ground balls. Its was the greatest experience, Quinn said. It just made me want to get to where they were. The play ers and everybody treated me real well. I got to take batting practice at (Citizens Bank Ballpark) and hit two out, one from each side (of the plate). That felt really good. Quinn, who also signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Florida State University, said hes been busy working out this sum mer while negotiating with the Phillies. He wakes each day at 6 a.m. for a morning run and returns to the eld with a trainer each evening for elding drills and batting practice, he said. Ive been working real hard all summer, Quinn said. The Phillies gave me tips on the right things to eat and about my workouts. Ive been hard at it. Much of the Phillies fo cus this summer, he said, has been on coming to terms with their rst-round pick, who was asking more than the Phillies were will ing to pay. Quinn added that he is slotted into a position where his contract would be well into six gures, likely in the range of $600,000. Part of any deal, he add ed, would be a provision by which if Quinn chooses in three or four years not to continue his baseball ca reer, the Phillies will pay for his schooling at the col lege of his choice. Its a win-win for me, Quinn said. Im very excit ed. It is a real blessing. There is an Aug. 15 dead line set by the Phillies for Quinn to sign a contract. We should be getting something going in the next couple of days or the next week or so, Quinn said. Right now I am lean ing toward signing with the Phillies. If and when he signs, Quinn would report to Clearwater and the Gulf Coast League Phillies for fall rookie ball. He said the Phillies have provided him a goal and the trip to Philadelphia served as reinforcement. It all depends on me, but they see me replacing (current shortstop) Jimmy Rollins in a few years, Quinn said with a chuckle. Its all been a blessing. Im very proud. Im proud because I think Ive worked hard for what Ive got. this saturday in and This annual pigskin preview of local school teams kicks off an exciting prep season!

Other teams include the Reptile Wranglers and Dog Team. According to AMIkids West Florida coach Drew Galloway, the addition of a basketball pro gram has spurred an interest among the students to excel, academically and individually, in order to be eligible to partici pate. Galloway holds his team to the fundamental aspects of the game and said he believes that will provide the youth with the tools to work with so that indi vidual improvement will come throughout their lives. The only quality Im look ing for is the desire to play bas ketball, Galloway said. From there, the skys the limit.

We will be at the store from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., if weather permits, the rescue wrote in a statement released last week. We will be accepting donations of food, treats, vaccinations and pet supplies while on location. We hope that shoppers will consider adding a bag of dog or cat food to their own purchases and donating them to the rescue dogs and cats living at the Lucky Puppy. Also, to help pay for vet care and spays/ neuters, cash donations are always appreciated. Because we are a 501(c)(3) charity, all monetary donations are tax deductible. We hope to see you there. F L ORID A FREEDOM NE W S PAP ERS Stephanie Lynn works with rescued horse at Greenhead farm. Woman aims to rescue horses Eternal Freedom ranch and rescue helps 40 horses in 1st year By Meridith Kaufman Florida Freedom Newspapers G REE NH E A D Rescued and aban doned horses line the 18 acres of pasture at Eternal Freedom Youth Ranch and Horse Rescue in Green head. Stephanie Lynn, 23, the owner and operator, has worked with horses since she was 10 and created the horse rescue a year ago, but she started rescuing horses in college. I worked at a poorly run ranch, and they called one day and said that I was either going to take the horses, or the slaughter houses were, Lynn said. So it was me and another volunteer, we rented a semi trailer and we took 15 horses, literally pulling the reins out of the slaughterhouses hands, but in the end they got 10. At the time, Lynn was only 20. She spent that entire summer off from college paying for, feeding and adopting out those 15 horses. By the start of her junior year at the University of South Florida, all of the horses had been adopted, and Lynn had gained a passion in her life; rescuing, rehabilitating and adopting out horses. Right now we specialize in thoroughbreds and mustang horses because no one else really does those, Lynn said. Mustang rescue is difcult because they are hard to get through to, but it just takes a lot of time and a lot of patience. This 23-year-old is determined to make this work and save more horses. The entire operation is Lynn, her boyfriend Damon Smitherman and four volunteers. She survives on sheer determination and her love of horses. But with horse abandonment on the rise and adoptions declining, rescues are wrought with nancial woes. It costs Lynn $350 for feed and $250 for hay weekly, costing Lynn $1,500 per horse yearly, not including medical fees. Lynn works multiple jobs to support the horses. We feed our horses high-protein quality feed because it keeps the weight on them, and you could buy $6 feed bags but it just isnt quality food, Lynn said. So this way we dont have to worry about bringing out the vet because the horses arent eating the right food. Feed is very important for the rescued horses. The majority of them are abandoned by owners who had not been able to feed them. One mare brought in a week and a half ago weighs only 560 pounds, when she should weigh 1,000 pounds. The guy brought her in, said he couldnt get her to gain any weight, Lynn said. So we always get a history about the horse, and it came out that he actually hadnt fed her in two months because he couldnt afford it. Now, that shes here shes gaining weight, her bowels movements are getting back to normal, but its a slow process. Sadly, emaciated and abused horses are what Lynn is getting used to seeing more and more. When those horses come to Eternal Freedom, the medical bills are high, medical issues are inevitable and the rescue ranch does not have 501(c)(3) categorization yet, so its hard to nd funding. We do get some donations here and there, Lynn said. Most people dont like to donate to something that isnt a 501(c)(3) because they dont get the tax write-off or because they think Im just an individual. If they actually come out here, see the horses and walk around the ranch, they see we dont have fat horses, we have the skinny, the hurt and were working to get them better. Lynns proudest moment at Eternal Freedom is looking on the website at the 40 horses they have rehabilitated and adopted out in only a year and a half, including the rst 15 horses that got her started. It doesnt feel like weve helped 40 horses because were constantly working, but when you can actually look on there and see a whole page full of horses youve helped, its like, Wow, we really did that, Lynn said. Eternal Freedom Youth Ranch and Horse Rescue is having an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at 2407 Pinewood Drive in Greenhead, which is on State 77 just north of the Bay-Washington County line. Entry is free, and there will be free carnival games and activities including a dunk tank and pony-horse walks. Concessions and donation jars will be set up throughout the ranch. The money raised will hopefully be enough to le for our 501(c)(3) papers and cover some medical expenses, but if not, it will all go to the horses, Lynn said. And that would be a great thing.

Skillet originated in Memphis, Tenn., in 1996 and have since re leased eight albums, receiving two Grammy nominations for Collide and Comatose. The band rst formed with two members, John Cooper, former vo calist for the Tennessee progres sive rock band Seraph, and Ken Steorts, former guitarist for Ur gent Cry. The bands toured together and after they were dissolved, Cooper and Steorts decided to get togeth er and form an experimental band called Skillet. Trey McClurkin joined the band as a temporary drummer. They were together only a month before gaining interest from Christian record label ForeFront Records, landing their rst self-titled debut album, Skillet. Cooper explained that the band name, Skillet, started off as a joke between band members. Since each were from a different band, with a different sound and a differ ent style, they were said to be like putting all of those styles in a big skillet to come up with something unique. Thus the band name Skillet was born. Cooper claims to still not like the bands name. The next album was released in 1997 and titled Hey You, I Love Your Soul and Coopers wife, Ko rey, joined soon after to play the keyboard. They released albums Invin cible, Ardent Worship and Alien Youth from 2000 to 2002. Steorts left shortly before the band began recording Invincible to be with his family, and thats when Kevin Haaland joined as their new guitarist. Trey McClurkin eventually parted ways with Skillet and Lori Peters lled the drummers posi tion shortly before the release of Invincible, which ended up being their number one selling album to date. Before Cooper took on produc tion duties on the album Alien Youth, Another new addition, Ben Kasica, took over on guitar. Skillets album, Comatose, re leased in 2006, featured singles Rebirthing, Whispers in the Dark, Comatose, The Older I Get, These Nights, and The Last Night. In 2008, Skillet announced that Peters was retiring from the band and during the Christmas season of 2007 they took on Jen Ledger as their new drummer. Comatose was certied gold in sales by the RIAA in 2009 and Skil let announced that they would be in the studio in 2010 to nalize their newest record, Awake, with Gram my-nominated producer Howard Benson, adding two songs, Hero and Monster. Skillet was nominated for six Dove Awards for the 41 Annual GMA Dove Awards and Awake was certied gold by sales in July 2010. In November of 2010, Skillet re leased an iTunes sessions EP with songs from Comatose and Awake and the next day Monster be come certied gold by sales. In February 2011, Skillet Spotlight turns on Gospel group Representatives Helen Hunt Rigdon and JoAnne Mullins from Congressman Jeff Millers ofce met with citizens last week in Vernon and Wausau. Mullins is shown with a group from the Washington County Agency on Aging who asked a variety of questions concerning impact of the budget impass in Washington.

Special to Extra Florida summers are just plain hot. For eques trian riding enthusiasts this may necessitate pay ing extra attention to your horses physical needs and changing your riding habits. Heat related illness such as heat stress can quickly become heat exhaustion if preventive measures are not taken, said Dr. Glennon Mays, clinical associate profes sor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Hot humid weather combined with over exer tion and uid loss can lead to heat stress. Signs of heat stress include de hydration, elevated body temperature, excessive sweating or no sweating, accelerated heart and respiratory rates, and sluggishness, Mays said. To check for dehydra tion, use your forenger and thumb to pinch and pull the skin on the side of your horses neck; it should snap back in place when released. If the skin is slow to form to the neck again your horse is dehy drated, explains Mays. A horses normal body temperature range is 99 to 101 degrees F; body temperature above 103 F is cause for concern since 104 F and greater gener ally require medical at tention. Additionally, you should be aware of your horses pulse and respira tion rates. Normal equine resting pulse rate is 32-44 beats per minute and respiration rate is usually 8-16 breaths per minute, Mays said. In addition to check ing vital signs, you can help your horse avoid heat stress this summer by providing clean fresh water, good ventilation and shade. Also, ride in the early morning or late evening when outdoor temperatures are cooler, Mays said. Adequate water intake is critical. An average size horse needs about 10 gallons of fresh water per day. In the summertime, a physically active adult horse may consume more than 20 gallons of water daily, Mays said. Water loss from sweating also means that electrolytes (sodium, potassium, and calcium) are lost and these need to be replaced after exercising. Free access to minerals and salt will help your horse maintain its electrolyte balance. Your veterinar ian can advise you with instructions on ways to mix electrolytes into your horses water or feed. Your horses stall should be well ventilated with good air circulation. Regular fans help circu late air inside the build ing. Be sure that fans and electrical cords are out of your horses reach and safely distanced from water sources, Mays said. For pastured horses, provide shade under trees or loang sheds. During and after physi cal activity, your horse moves warm interior blood through veins and into capillaries at the skins surface, Mays said. When the skin of your horse is cooled this surface blood is cooled also and thus the body temperature of your horse decreases. A cool water bath will help your over heated horse dissipate excess heat faster. The water conducts the heat from the surface of the horse and water evapora tion from the skin cools your horses body. Stand ing the horse in cool water also helps to dissipate heat through the hooves. Heat related illness can be a very serious condition for your horse and should not be taken casually, cautions Mays. A wellinformed horse owner is capable of preventing overheating from occur ring when he/she knows the signs of heat stress and what care to provide. Continue to ride your horse in the summer months, but be aware of the signs of heat stress. Tailor you riding time to humidity and temperature conditions. Provide ample fresh, clean water and ad ditional sources of electro lytes. Set up fans to help circulate air around your horse. Also, remember the rider is also exposed to potential heat-related issues. Take appropriate precautions for yourself as well!

Sometimes I just have to look at myself and my foolishness and laugh. The trick, though, is regarding yourself and getting wiser. It is a lesson I am still learning and with which I still struggle. Im not sure why we are this way, or maybe its just me (please let me know!), but I can be in the midst of living a miracle and doubt Gods blessing and watchcare. My job and life here are examples of miracle, blessing AND watchcare. Still I cling to doubt the way someone who cant swim grabs a life preserver. Life is so much better when we take a moment of perspective to recognize Gods care, but that is sometimes really hard to do. What started me thinking about this, of course, is an episode from the Bible. Now, one of the most inspiring men to me is Peter. After all, it was Peter who rst said to Jesus, You are the Son of God. And it was Peter in the garden who fought back, cutting off the ear of a servant of the chief priest. And it was Peter who, when all others were afraid Jesus was a ghost walking on water in Matthew 14 who said, Tell me to come to you. So, out of the boat he jumps, walking on water like Jesus. So far, so good, right? Nope. Right in the middle of living this miracle, Peter loses faith. The winds picks up. No doubt the waves were rolling, and Peter loses heart. In fear, instead for looking for the Savior, he looks elsewhere. And he begins to sink. And, just like me, he decides then to call for help. And, as always, the Lords hand is right there. But why cant we just trust the miracle? Why dont we keep our eyes on our salvation, trusting in Gods goodness and grace? Honestly, I dont know. Some would say the evil one catches hold to us, and they may be right. Some would say our own weakness and natural faithlessness catches hold to us, and they may be right. In any event, there is one solution that always, always, always works for me. I pray for help (always getting it!) and then laugh at my own foolishness. Hopefully, this laughter signies a growth in wisdom too. Remember, it was Peter in Acts who speaks to the 5,000 not long after the crucixion. And it was Peter who was a prime leader of the early church. And it was Peter who, thanks be to God, got the message the Gospel could go to the gentiles too. Yep, thats the kind of wisdom I want. at the push of a button are all hallmarks of our or no waiting. Our needs imagine working on a in the big things as well. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688 Stephen B.

Collide went on to become their best-selling project to date, with over 200,000 units sold, while the band played some 200 dates a year, including tours with bands such as Saliva, Shinedown, Finger Eleven and Three Days Grace. Were proud of where weve been in the past, but I feel like this is our strongest record, Cooper said about their record Collide. There are so many different inuences that it wont just be about rock audiences or metal audiences; I think theres something here for everybody. Cooper explained that the band is always trying to raise the bar as far as quality of music they play an ex ample being Rebirthing being a complex but accessible amalgama tion of piercing strings and humon gous power chords sure to be a con cert staple. I just love rock ballads and the old days of Motley Crue, Aerosmith and Bon Jovi, Cooper said. They always help you remember where you were, what you were doing, and who you were dating. They represent more of the pop side of what we do, which might have been hinted at in other records, but was never fully re alized or matured. In April 2011 Kasica was replaced by Seth Morrison as lead guitarist. Awake won the Top Christian Al bum Award at the Billboard Music Awards 2011 and their song Awake and Alive was announced to be on the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack in May 2011. Skillet is still exing its experi mental muscles adding pianobased and progressive-inuenced pieces. Its a new era for both Atlantic and Skillet, said Andy Karp, Head of A&R for Atlantic Records. Its the rst record where weve really been one on one with the band, and its the latest step in our unique journey to gether. Ive been at the label seven teen years and were known for hav ing so many great rock n roll bands: Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Yes, Bad Company. There really arent a lot of labels that have that kind of pedigree for rock acts, and Skillet is yet anoth er in a long line of great bands. Cooper and company can cer tainly relate, citing several from the labels lineage as inuencers since its infancy. Growing up, I was a prog freak and loved bands like Yes and Dream Theater, Cooper said. I also grew up with my mom as a classical piano teacher and took lessons for eight years, along with playing in the marching band and symphony. Its funny because every once in a while there was a touch of that on Collide, but until recently, I didnt see what that background had to do with rock music. On this record, we were able to make it work structurally with the piano and strings, plus theres enough prog to make me happy. Cooper explained that his song writing has expanded to cover a vast range of topical territories, some of which follow socially conscious ide als, while others vulnerably mirror his personal life and struggles. Take, for instance, the aforemen tioned The Last Night, which talks about someone considering suicide after living life in despair and not hav ing support from their parents, Coo per said. Rather than calling it quits, the track suggests life is worth living and through the help of a supportive friend, theyre eventually talked down from that ledge. A song even closer home for Cooper is The Older I Get, which picks up after his mom passed away and follows the rocky relation ship he had with his dad and new stepmother. My dad got remarried two months after my mom died, and my stepmoth ers husband had also passed away a few months earlier, Cooper said. It was a really bizarre situation and they didnt get along, which was also the point when my dad and I started ghting. From the time I was 14 or 15, I dont remember having a single conversation with him for about four years that didnt have to do with ght ing. But a lot has mended since then and weve been able to move on. You can only go through life so long living in regret, and while those situations certainly affected me, I dont hold onto the anger anymore. Cooper said that those introspec tive visions tie in with the groups overall goals of promoting positive messages that will give fans some thing to digest beyond pre-conceived clichs or trite topics. In naming the record Comatose they said it would further cements those expressions, hoping to rev up lis teners to break beyond the mundane, get on track with their relationships, and charge forward with hope. John has written the best songs hes every written and theres been such an evolution on all levels for the band, Karp said. Sonically we set out to create a combination of elec tronic elements, orchestration, and a melodic approach. Skillet has man aged to hit all of those three exactly on target, raising its game to yet another level of excellence.

It was found in the vestibule of the church and the owner never reclaimed it. People leave a lot of things at church umbrellas, handkerchiefs, scarfs, pocketbooks, hats, etc. But this was the rst time I had ever known of anyone forgetting his walking stick. It was a strong heavy stick capable of supporting a big man. As I thought about it, I decided maybe it had not been forgotten. Maybe it had been discarded the user felt he would not need it any longer. The fact that it was never reclaimed seemed to indicate as much. Could it be possible that perhaps something happened to the owner that night while he was a church similar to what happened to the man sitting at the pool of Bethesda. This story is recorded in John Chapter 5. At a certain season an angel would trouble the water of Bethesda and whoever got into the pool rst was healed. This man complained that for 38 years he had been waiting around the pool and it was not his fault that others had someone to help them and he did not. Jesus asked the man, Do you really want to be made well? There is an implication that the man might not really want to be made well. If he were well, he would have to assume some responsibility for his own welfare. There are many people even today who prefer to have someone else take care of them than to care for themselves. Dr. Joyner is the pastor of Country Oaks Church. Throw away your walking stick
