With efforts from the Bonifay Kiwanis Club, Holmes County Development Commission and city of Bonifay, the Bonifay Kiwanis Community Service Committee was able to nance the new sign. Vortex Springs fatality, septic tank bill also on list By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Judge Christopher Patterson delivered the nal sentencing to Johnny Mac Sketo Calhoun on May 11. On April 4, a jury had convicted him of rst-degree murder of Mia Shay Brown and sentenced him to death. The nal sentencing came ve minutes into the court session, with Patterson stating that for the rst-degree murder of Brown, Calhoun would be sentenced to death, and for the second charge of kidnapping he would serve a 100 years imprisonment to be served in the Florida Department of Corrections. The defendant shall be remanded to the Florida Department of Corrections for execution of his sentence, Patterson said. May God have mercy on your soul. Calhoun had the same reaction to the sentencing that he did when he walked into the courtroom so many times before: somber and unresponsive. Hes had a year to think about this, State Attorney Glenn Hess said. He knew when he rst walked into court what he had done and what his sentence would be. Hess said with the help of modern technology and the immense cooperation of all the emergency, forest and law enforcement agencies, the case was able to come together ef ciently and justice could be executed swiftly. The Brown family said they were relieved the painful ordeal was over. The death of my daughter has impacted my family and myself in countless ways, said Nancy Williams, Browns mother. Minds By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Although his art is whimsical, Nolan Windholtz said it carries with it a profound message. Ive been a professional potter for over 25 years now, and I started my rst pottery class and got radically saved at the same time, way back in 1986, Windholtz said. Pottery has been my primary income since then. Windholtz said he had taken his ministry all over the world, using his potters wheel to demonstrate the lesson taught in Jeremiah 18 in which the Lord told Jeremiah to go and observe the work of a potter. It was this example that God was showing that He is the potter and we are the clay, Windholtz said. It states, Then I went down to the potters house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potters hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. Windholtz said his ministry stayed strong until 1999, when he halted from the ministry and started Round Tree Pottery. I also met my soon to be wife, Anne, who was a widow with three Potters creations further spiritual calling PHOTOS BY CECILIA SPEARS | The News Potter Nolan Windholtz said it is his calling to spread the Word. At left he sits with his most retailed piece, The Naughty Cat, known for its devious grin and feather sticking out of its mouth.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, January 2, 2013 are forever etched with pictures and testimony of a life cut short in a horri c inferno. Mia, her family and friends are not the only victims; everyone who has had to participate in viewing this monstrous treatment of humanity is a victim, too. She said for her, the healing process started with closure found in the nal sentencing of Calhoun. I wouldve have preferred that he receive a life sentence in solitary connement, but this will have to do, Williams said. James Williams, Browns father, said he felt justice was served. Its a life for a life, James Williams said. He said he gave his life to God, and now its time for him to man-up and lay down his life for the life he has stolen. There has been a scholarship set up in Mia Browns name at Bethlehem High School. For those who are interested in donating to the scholarship, an account is set up at the First Federal Credit Union under the Mia Shay Brown Scholarship. This is the best way we can honor her memory, Nancy Williams said. Helping others as we know she would have done herself. Diver drowns at Vortex Springs A Biloxi, Miss., diver died in Vortex Spring on March 17 almost a year and a half later after a Memphis, Tenn., diver disappeared in the same underwater caves. Larry Higginbotham, 43, had gone to the spring and disappeared, said Chief Deputy Harry Hamilton and Sgt. Michael Raley with the Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce. When he didnt return, his girlfriend contacted the Vortex Springs management, who in turn contacted the Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce, Hamilton said. Hamilton said with the aide of volunteer cave divers, the body was recovered the following day. Ben McDaniel, 30, from the Memphis, Tenn., area, was reported missing in August 2010. His body was never recovered. An episode of Investigation Discoverys show Disappeared featured the McDaniel case. Vortex Spring produces 28 million gallons of crystal-clear water daily at a year-round temperature of 68 degrees. Depths in the spring basin range from about 50 feet for open water divers to a depth of more than 160 feet for cave divers, according to vortexspring.com. The bottom of the spring bowl is sandy, with limestone near the vent. A handrail leads cave divers back 400 feet. Vortex waters ow out of the 225-footfoot-diameter spring, which ows into Blue Creek, which ows more than 10 miles before entering the Choctawhatchee River, according to the website. Dive training is offered at the park, and the underwater cave is accessible to 310 feet, at which point further entry is blocked by a steel gate, according to the Internet. Only experienced divers are allowed to dive to 115 feet. Hamilton, when coordinating the search for McDaniel in 2010, said the cave at Vortex Springs is very challenging and extremely dangerous. So far, divers have penetrated the cave 1,500 feet at a depth of 150 feet. Wastewater system improvements Made possible with funding from USDA Rural Development, Bonifay had a groundbreaking ceremony in April, kicking off improvements to its wastewater collection system, which rst was put into service in the 1980s. This is a great day for the city of Bonifay, Mayor Lawrence Cloud said. Today we will break ground for our new modern wastewater treatment facility. USDA Rural Development awarded $4,245,500 in funding for renovations to the system, which underwent a major upgrade and expansion in the 1990s. The Florida Department of Health has noted that Bonifays wastewater system has experienced excessive equipment failure over the years and that many of the current components are deteriorated, which if unchecked will affect the facilitys ability to treat the wastewater on a consistent basis. It also was reported that the collection system experiences signi cant in ow and in ltration problems, which might be a contributing factor to sewer backups. Financed with $1,856,500 in grants and $2,389,000 in loans, renovations will include construction of a new in uent lift station, headworks (mechanical screening facility, coarse screen, grit removal system), biosolids digestion/dewatering equipment, disc lters and general site improvements including fencing rehabilitation, handrails around the sequencing batch reactor and a new laboratory/ of ce building. More than 80 percent of funding from USDA Rural Developments Water and Environmental Programs help nance water and wastewater systems that serve communities with populations of 5,000 or less. Helping rural communities build a foundation for economic strength and future prosperity is at the core of Rural Developments mission, said USDA Rural State Director Richard A. Machek. This project is an investment in the health of area residents as well as the environment and the future of the city of Bonifay. County commissioners ght septic tank bill With the help of County Attorney Jeff Goodman, the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners composed and approved of Resolution 2012-02 during their regularly scheduled meeting on April 24, stating that they are fully against the septic tank bill. This our latest successful attempt to keep our citizens away from the long ngers of the moneyhungry legislature, Goodman said. This is another attempt to make our voice known to the legislature against this bill. As a citizen of Holmes County, Im backing it whole-heartedly. Commission receives safety awards The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners received Safety Awards for having the most improved workplace performance for entities with 100 to 200 employees and for having the best overall safety performance for 2012 and thanked county employees for their continued efforts in improving safety during their regularly scheduled meeting on July 10. Some get awards for participation, said County Attorney Jeff Goodman. They got this because they were the best out of 47 counties. Commissioner Monty Merchant said because of the level of safety Holmes County has shown, its insurance premium has dropped substantially. Safety is priority in Holmes County, Chairman Ron Monk said. You can tell they put a lot of hard work into safety efforts and awareness. BOCC says farewell to King, Music The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners and residents wished Commissioners Jim King and Phillip Music a fond farewell with a reception after the last regularly scheduled meeting they would attend in an of cial capacity on Nov. 13. Im saying this partly as your attorney and partly as a citizen of Holmes County, said County Attorney Jeff Goodman. Ive worked for many counties, and I can honestly say Ive never worked for such a county as this. You all set the tempo for the meetings, having had your differences still being able to come together with resolve and leaving each meeting with the same camaraderie. Goodman said this is an example that could be taught to the next generation. I only hope that the next board comes together as peaceably as this one has, Goodman said. On behalf of me and my family, I appreciate all youve done. Commissioner Monty Merchant also wished the men farewell. Its been a pleasure, Merchant said. Theres a lot of years and experience thats going to be missed. Commissioner Kenneth Williams also said he enjoyed working with King and Music. Holmes swears in new commissioners New Holmes County commissioners Bill Parish, Bobby Sasnett and David Whitaker were sworn in Nov. 20, a week after the commission wished outgoing commissioners Jim King, Ron Monk and Phillip Music farewell. I was looking up the history of oaths and what its meant to our country, said Holmes County Attorney Jeff Goodman. June 1, 1789, First United States Congress, the very rst statute that they passed had to do with administering oaths. It was that important to our founding fathers, and if it was that important to them, it should be important to us. Goodman quoted the Declaration of Independence, stating that an oath is a solemn appeal to God to witness the truth of a statement or the sincerity of a promise, coupled with an imprecation of divine judgment in the event of falsehood or breach of obligation. This oath means something today, Goodman said. These three men are going to stand up here, theyre going to have their loved ones up here, and theyre going to put their hand on the Bible, and theyre not only going to promise to you, citizens of the county, but theyre going to promise to a divine being, Jehovah, that theyre going to fulll the terms of their oath. Theres going to be hard times in the next four years, and it was best described by Thomas Jefferson when he said nearly all men can stand adversity but to test a mans true character give him power. NASA speaker visits library NASA astronaut Andrew Drew Feustel met with students in cyberspace as part of the Florida Summer Youth Program on June 22. Speaking from NASAs Johnson Space Center in Houston, Feustel said he hopes to inspire Florida youths to reach for the stars during 2012s Dream Big events. The questionand-answer format included information from his two space shuttle missions. Feustel was selected by NASA in July 2000. In 2009, he served on the crew of STS-125, the nal servicing mission for the Hubble Space Telescope. In 2011, he launched aboard space shuttle Endeavours nal mission, STS-134, to the International Space Station. The space ight veteran has logged more than 28 days in space including 42 hours and 18 minutes during six spacewalks. The Florida Summer Youth Program is an annual collaboration between the State Library and Archives of Florida and public libraries around the state, which provide information, resources and activities for youths during their summer break. Local aims for The X Factor Mika Moore of Bonifay won her chance to go to the next level of auditions for The X Factor in Greensboro, N.C., May 1. I love to sing, Moore said. Ive sung for as long as I could remember, and to become a singer has been a huge dream of mine. Moore, 19, has lived in Bonifay her whole life, received her associates degree from Chipola College in math education and plans to nish her bachelors degree and move on toward her masters degree. She said she tried out for The X Factor in Dothan, Ala., last year, but didnt make it. But she didnt give up. She tried again this year and made it. This time Ill be singing in front of the actual judges of X Factor, Moore said. Im excited about being able to y out there and have the experience. Even if I dont make it, I can be proud that I made it that far. She said she drew a lot of inspiration from her favorite country music singers like Martina McBride and Loretta Lynn, J.D. OWENS INC.

He is set up at the Harvest Vineyard Mission, north of Caryville in Bonifay.

Tim Brown re-elected sheriff Holmes County voters went to the polls on Nov. 6 to not only re-elect President Barack Obama, but to choose county leaders in a number of key races. Sheriff Tim Brown won the night with a vote of 4,518 to 3,648 against John Braxton Jr. for the of ce of sheriff of Holmes County; Kyle Hudson overcame Don Hersman for clerk of court with 2,625 votes to 2,497; and Otis Corbin Jr. was elected property appraiser over Felecia Fisanick with a vote of 4,384 to 3,733. For superintendent of schools, Eddie Dixon surpassed Terry Mears with a vote of 4,319 to 3,775; and the new school board member for District 2 is Debbie Kolmetz, winning against Wilburn G. Baker with a vote of 3,733 to 3,422. As for the local referendum of allowing businesses with licenses to sell alcoholic beverages to sell beer on Sunday, 56 percent of Holmes County voted no with a vote of 4,395 to 3,410. This election was no more important then any other election, said Holmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris. They are all equally important.

Zeb Browns integrity hard to match Dear Editor, I have lived in Holmes County for most of my life. I grew up here and graduated from Holmes County High School in 1999. During my life here, I have seen a lot of good in the hardworking and honest people of our county who are willing to always help their neighbor even if it is at their own expense. Sadly enough, I have also witnessed the small town corruption that has quietly been swept under the rug for far too long. I do not wish this to be a letter of accusation of anyone; I simply wish to share some of my heartbreaking observations. Actually, I just want to share my personal experience of the sickening event that I witnessed on the sad day of Dec. 19, 2012. As everyone knows by now, Zeb Brown, one of the nest administrators Bethlehem High School has ever had, was transferred to the Holmes County district ofce. No doubt, his good name will be the object of much undeserved attention and gossip. As a teacher under the administration of Mr. Brown, I ask you to question everything you will most certainly hear. I want to share my experience with you in this matter, my rsthand experience, and then you can make your own assumptions. The things I say here are the truth, and you are welcome to take them or leave them, but I cannot be silent any longer about a sickness in our community that threatens to crack our foundation, a foundation of love, brotherhood and integrity. Indeed, integrity was a huge word thrown loosely about this last election. Let me tell you something about integrity. Integrity is a man and his wife who will stay at a school well past 1 oclock in the morning numerous times to make sure everything is perfect for a graduation, an awards ceremony for students, the rst day of a new school year. Many times I myself was guilty of thinking, OK now, this is good enough. Im tired. Lets go home. But no, Zeb Brown and Lacy, his wife, who was always at his side, would not settle for anything less than the best we had to give our students. He always wanted everything just right for them. Sadly enough, a few individuals who were always willing to express their negative opinions on everything anyone tried to accomplish often scoffed at those efforts. However, Mr. Brown always held his head up high and showed what it means to be a true leader even in the face of adversity. Even when he got the news of his transfer, he remained calm and ensured each of us that he had to trust in the leadership of the new superintendent and asked everyone to show their support by continuing to do the good work that had begun for the students. He told us all that it was never about him, and he asked every one of us to promise him that no matter what, we would do whatever it took to give these students all the opportunities possible. I couldnt believe it; I couldnt believe that even when his foundation was shaken, he was thinking about the students. But I shouldnt have been shocked at all; this was always his way during his time as principal at Bethlehem. I know because I was there. I thank Zeb Brown. I thank him for being a compelling and graceful boss and true advocate for our students. I thank him for standing up for what is right and even in the toughest of times for shining as a light and an example of what it means to be a true person of integrity. This is a quality we so often lack in our society. I hope that we can all learn from this heartbreaking situation for the Bethlehem community. A good and effective principal was removed from his position; it is just so hard to comprehend. Even more difcult to understand is how he learned of his fate from students and parents at a ballgame, who said it was being told at a community store for weeks where community leaders are often seen before he even heard it from his own boss. How sad is that? There is good in this county. I have witnessed this good. I have seen it in the hearts students who are looking to us to be examples of it, good that can overcome all the negative things that I have witnessed for far too long. Let us break our silence, stand up for what is right and shine as a city on a hill, a city that cannot be hidden. We are the light of the world and of this community. Let us shine on for the next generation. Lets give everyone a chance to be the best they can be. Thats what Mr. Brown did at Bethlehem, and thats what he will continue to do no matter where life takes him. Amy Burgess White Bonifay Parents, teachers and students seek explanation Dear Editor, Caring and committed parents, teachers, and staff members of Bethlehem School continue to seek a satisfactory explanation from Superintendent Dixon for the transfer of Principal Brown. According to widespread rumors, a new principal already has been handpicked to ll the Bethlehem principal position even before an opening date for applications was given. Caring parents and teachers, who have the best interest of Bethlehem students at heart, cant help but ask what qualications, dedication and record this new principal might have that could possibly be an improvement worthy of replacing one of the most dedicated and effective principals Bethlehem School has had. In regard to statements made by Mr. Dixon in the Holmes County Times, that it is ... a decision based on what is best for the school district, and this move will serve to further streamline district administration, questions are raised as to why Mr. Dixon feels particular individuals need to be in certain strategic positions at the expense of removing an effective and visionary principal a principal who has given great effort and made great strides in signicantly turning the tide of Bethlehem School to a higher standard of education raising both the expectations and the opportunities for our students. The beginnings of a new and refreshing exceptional educational culture at Bethlehem School has been felt by all and appreciated by most who attend or work at this school. If Mr. Dixon is sincere about what is best for the school district, then he needs to honestly consider the hard evidence and statistical support showing the effectiveness of rising student standards and educational performance under the capable leadership of Mr. Brown. One cannot help but wonder if Mr. Dixons decision was based, in part, on a small handful of disgruntled teachers and parents, who have complained loudly because of the newly required standards standards that were put in place and upheld by Mr. Brown. Why would a higher standard of excellence not be wholeheartedly supported and backed by a superintendent who truly cared about the educational success of the students in his district? Certainly the majority of teachers, staff members and dedicated parents who are putting time and effort above and beyond the call of duty at Bethlehem School were not consulted, given any notice or offered any opportunity to voice their opinions regarding this change. As a parent who has had children attending Bethlehem School for more than 17 years (two are currently enrolled), I have observed certain trends and practices through the years, some of which have been detrimental to our students. My husband and I have had hopes of seeing positive changes for the students of Bethlehem School. We have seen, through our experience with Mr. Brown, that the courage and commitment of a dedicated principal can effectively resolve some of these issues. Mr. Browns integrity in upholding certain standards and practices is helping to bring about a better school. A couple of personal experiences and observations show how Mr. Browns efforts have begun to remediate and raise substandard practices at our school, which previously seemed to be ignored: Several years ago, our son was enrolled in an elementary class with substandard academic practices. Television was being watched throughout the majority of class time. When my husband and I voiced our concerns at different times to the principal, we were assured things would be addressed and changed. Over the course of several months, nothing changed or improved. Our principal said all the right things, but nothing ever changed. We pulled our son out of Bethlehem School and homeschooled him for the next year in an effort to help him recover from the academic loss. I felt for the other students in the class, who now had a signicant educational disadvantage. Since Mr. Brown has been principal at Bethlehem School, he has expected and followed through with higher academic standards and teaching practices in the classroom. When this standard is expected of all teachers, a new academic culture begins to take shape. I have also felt personal frustration over my children not being able to use or check out books from the school library. Furthermore, I was disappointed to learn that the problem with this issue was not that we didnt have a fulltime librarian on payroll and a librarian aide for many years, but that, for reasons unknown, it was made very difcult for students to check out books or use the technology available to them in the library. When challenged by parents on the issue, Mr. Brown has insisted and followed through again with great personal criticism to change this practice and to give all the opportunities whether in facility or idea to our students. During Mr. Browns time as principal, he has not only effectively carried out his regular expected responsibilities as a principal, but I have also observed the great time and effort he has spent in proactively establishing and following through with additional programs and practices, which are greatly benetting our students. Some of these programs include a response-to-intervention process for ensuring student success; student planners (for student guidance); a discipline referral process; a safety plan; a clear honor code for students, teachers and administrators; new AP, Honor and Academy courses being offered; a zero tolerance policy on bullying and harassment; and cleaning up an older part of the school to provide a nice student activity center, to name a few. I believe Mr. Dixon will have a difcult time nding a principal with the qualications, character and dedication Mr. Brown has consistently shown. We will be watching and waiting to see if Mr. Dixon truly does have the best interest of our students and school at heart.

Because he is a few years older than I, however, sometimes his memory of an event is a little different from mine. This is true of cane grinding. The yearly event he wrote about a week or so ago took place down the hill from our house at our grandparents home. I dont recall those events when the syrup was cooked in the round iron kettle. Neither do I remember ever being present when syrup was made in the huge shed called the sugar mill shed at our grandparents old, old home place where our Uncle Alex and his family lived. The iron kettle formerly used for syrup-making sat across the dirt road in front of our house in an indention in the ground and was used for scalding hogs. That was such a common practice at our home that I thought every home had one and was surprised that some people scalded hogs in a 50-gallon drum. That must have been a dangerous practice to lift a 200-pound porker down into a drum of scalding hot water. As a child, I wondered why the hog-scalding pan was called a syrup kettle. The syrup kettle I remember was a rectangular evaporator pan set atop a brick furnace inside the rst bay of the three-car house. The second bay was a raised oor where the boxes of half-gallon and gallon syrup cans were set during cane-grinding. Bags of guano and various other supplies were kept there, too. In the third bay, a one-mule wagon was stored along with wooden pegs for holding the cane shing poles. In my earliest recollections of cane-grinding, the mule pulled a long bent pine pole round and round to power the giant wheels that pressed the sweet juice from the cane into a barrel located on the ground sled (we called it a ground slide). When the barrel was full, the mule would be unhitched, and the barrel of juice would be dragged over near the evaporator where the juice would be dipped into the coolest end of the pan. In later years, our Dad bought a gasoline engine that powered the mill. Mr. Thomas Burgess, a good friend of our family, could repair anything, so he was a frequent visitor to our home during cane grinding. I believe a pipe system was later devised to get the juice to the vat, as well, but that could be one of those memories which my oldest brother Jim could refute. I have some distinctive memories, though, of cane grinding. First are the smells. The sweet smell of the nished syrup is the most pleasant. The greenish juice has its own smell, and the sour mash has another. There is also the smell of the mule droppings as it pulls the lever hour after cold hour. The cane skimmings as they fermented had their own beer smell. I recall one year some of the workers kept drinking the beer from the barrel of skimmings. They declared it very ne until they reached the bottom of the barrel and found a hen fairly well preserved in the alcohol. Other memories are washing, rinsing and drying jugs and jars to use for syrup that we kept for our own use or gave away. My hands were small enough to go into the used jars and give them a good cleaning. The gallon and half-gallon tin cans were sealed for sale. I also remember my sister Minnie, my cousin Lenora and I going to Pensacola with Daddy to carry a load of syrup for sale. He must have got a good price because we got to go shopping, a very rare occasion. Helping cook big country dinners for the workers around the mill is another winter memory. We always had a crew working as well as neighbors who dropped in for a drink of cane juice or a jug of the fresh syrup. Mr. Tom Collins and then his son, Mr. V.J. Collins, were the syrup makers I remember. That was a special skill to keep the liquid moving along the pan at just the right temperature. Piles of wood had to be kept on hand, and the cooker had to know just when to lower the temperature by dragging out some of the burning wood. He also had to know when to guide the nished product into the last division of the pan where it could be let out into the cooling box. Another job I often had was to ll cans and jugs, knowing exactly when to shut the syrup gate so the container didnt run over. Only a few families today practice the art of syrup making. Some make it a big social event with friends invited to share in the work and enjoy the fruits of the labor. Nothing is better than some good homemade cane syrup with some of Mamas homemade butter and hot biscuits. Wish I knew where to get some homemade cane syrup.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, January 2, 2012 Page 5 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Do you use a seat belt when driving? I once heard a trooper say he had never pulled a dead person from a car wreck who had his or her seat belt on. He had to change that a few months later. The world is a dangerous place and we all make it more dangerous by doing stupid things. The only problem is just what is stupid? Whats stupid to you might not be stupid to someone else. I have gone on and on about just how safe the Summit tree stand is. I can climb a tree, get comfortable and even take a nap if I like, and I usually do if I wandered into the woods before daylight. But there is a limit to even the safety of a Summit tree stand and I was reminded of that last week. If you are familiar with these types of stands you know they come in two parts. It works off the pressure you put on the side of the tree. As long as you are leaning back away from the tree it will bite into the tree. If you lean forward and take the pressure off the back of the stand it will lose its grip and most likely start to slide down the tree. These stands are safe as long as you dont try to climb a hardwood tree with slick bark such as an oak tree. Pine trees were built with these stands in mind. I tried using a safety harness when I rst used my climber and it almost caused me to fall out of the tree so I have not used one since. Some people will tell you that is stupid, but it scared me to the point I swore I would never try that trick again. Like I said, this type of tree stand is safe but it is not fail safe. I have had the bottom rung fall out away from me while coming down from the tree and a safety harness would have done me no good in that case. You just have to keep your cool and work the bottom rung back up with a safety string that comes with the stand. A man in Alabama was choked to death recently with his safety harness when he fell from a tree. Its everyone to his own taste. If you feel safe using a harness by all means use one, but they are not for me. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By MICKIE ANDERSON Special to The News Herald When wildlife managers imported eight female Texas pumas in hopes they would mate with native Florida panthers, they knew they were taking a bit of a risk. But a new University of Florida research study, published in the Journal of Animal Ecology, suggests their gamble paid off. Without those pumas, UF researchers Madan Oli and recent UF doctoral graduate Jeff Hostetler found that the probability of the Florida panther population falling below 10 panthers by 2010 was nearly 71 percent. We found that the Florida population wouldve declined, on average, by about 5 percent per year, said Oli, a UF population ecology professor and Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences faculty member. And thats essentially telling us there was a high chance that the population wouldve eventually gone extinct. There were an estimated 20 to 25 panthers left in the state when the Texas female cats were brought to Florida in 1995. Officials believe the population has since grown about 4 percent per year, and their estimate now ranges from 100 to 160, said Dave Onorato, a panther expert with the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Florida Panther Project. Having a scientific study in hand that validates what conservation officials had believed would happen is helpful, Onorato said. It shows that the genetic restoration effort was effective at averting the loss of the Florida panther, he said. The Florida panther had been listed as an endangered species since 1967, and although it was named the official state animal by 1982, it was in peril by the 1990s. The cats suffered from numerous inbreeding-related problems, including poor sperm quality and other reproductive abnormalities, kinked tails, heart defects and heavy parasite loads. When the Texas cats were brought to Florida, officials werent sure how they would fare or that the breeding effort would work, but with the success of the genetic restoration, Onorato said a similar effort could be initiated again in the future. For now, however, there is no specific timetable for such an effort. He said the cats continue to face threats from loss of habitat, cars and inbreeding. Although they sometimes roam far and wide, Florida panthers the only puma population east of the Mississippi River are primarily found in the Big Cypress National Preserve and Everglades ecosystem areas that include parts of Collier, Lee, Hendry, Monroe and Miami-Dade counties. The recent UF study, which examined several decades worth of field data and genetic information about the panther, found that the robust survival of the Florida-Texas hybrid kittens played a large role in the panther population being reeled back from the brink of extinction. PANTHERS ON PROWL Birding, wildlife viewing trail signs something to sing about By SUSAN SMITH Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission There are new signs of economic opportunity and natural wonders in south Florida. Tourists and residents in 11 southern Florida counties may have noticed that directional signs for the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail were popping up all over the place. The signs direct traf c to 113 new birding and wildlife viewing sites from Sarasota and Stuart south to Key West, joining hundreds of other GFBWT locations throughout the state. Not only do these signs, bearing the swallowtailed kite logo, designate ideal locations for birding and wildlife viewing adventures, they are also a symbol of positive economic impact. Gov. Rick Scott said, Wildlife viewing in Florida is a major reason why our state in the most popular tourist destination in the country. I am proud that Floridians and our visitors can now better enjoy the wildlife our state has to offer, while creating more opportunities for Florida families. A recent study about birding in Florida indicated the trails road signs play an important role in visitors travel decisions. Of 1,652 participants, 65 percent had seen a GFBWT road sign, prompting a visit. We hope that many Florida families and tourists will follow these new signs and explore the trail and discover the fascinating wildlife these sites have to offer, said Mark Kiser, Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Birding and wildlife viewing are important to Floridas economy, and the GFBWT program is an integral component of Floridas nature-based tourism industry. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service data, wildlife viewing generates more than $5 billion in Florida and supports 51,000 jobs. A recent statewide survey by Responsive Management showed that wildlife viewing is the second most popular outdoor recreation activity in the state (behind going to the beach) for visitors and residents. The FWC installed the trail signage with a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation and support from the Wildlife Foundation of Florida. In addition to signs, the FWC has produced guide booklets that contain site descriptions, directions and maps showcasing birding and wildlife watching opportunities throughout Florida. Wildlife enthusiasts can download or order the GFBWT guidebooks at FloridaBirdingTrail.com and Wildlife FoundationofFlorida.com Need further help planning an adventure? Use the Trip-Planning Wizard on the GFBWT website or download the free mobile application Nature Viewing Along the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail at iTunes.com and Play. Google.com. A series of city and regional guides called Ready, Set, Go Wild is also under way; the Orlando guide is now available.

Bear Wrongs Patiently th spiritual work of mercy is to bear wrongs patiently. Bearing wrongs patiently does not, how ever, mean being a doormat for others to walk on. It simply means that, regardless of the wrongs which we suffer, we should bear them all patiently. For ex ample, if you have had something stolen from your unlocked car, this virtue requires that you treat this with patience and equanimity, but not that you con tinue to keep your car unlocked. It is more about the attitude that you have concerning the wrong done to you. We might take a lesson from the ancient stoics, who counseled that every event has two handles, as it were, one by which it can be borne and one by which it is unbearable. Remember that everything here is temporary and that liars, thieves, and even murderers really have no power over our immortal souls. Finally, consider the example of Jesus in his last days. Faced with false charges and inhuman torture and suffering, he prayed for his accusers and tormentors. We should show patience by praying for those who wrong us, realizing that they are the ones who have truly been harmed by their misdeeds.

SNYDER The fact we actually survived another year is a tribute to somebodys tenacity; I am not sure whose. I know the only thing that got me through the year was the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and boy is she graciously tenacious. I was sure everything would collapse and, of course, several times I collapsed in my easy chair. It is a New Year, or so they tell us but I have my suspicions. After this latest episode with the Mayans calendar, I am not too sure what date it is or what year it is, for that matter. They certainly got everything wrong, and I have my suspicions about the rest of it. How do we really know that Jan. 1 is actually Jan. 1? Moreover, how do we know what year it is exactly? I think somewhere along the line somebody has pulled a scam on civilization and has messed up our calendars. If the Mayans got it wrong, maybe we have it wrong also. Whatever day and whatever year it is I am going to celebrate the New Year. If I am wrong, I have a lot of company. When we celebrate the New Year, there is nothing new about it. Everything we did last year we are going to be doing this year only we will be one year older. Perhaps as we get older we forget about what we have done and think we are doing something new. Hooray for senility! I really do not care about that; my philosophy is, lets do it all over again. If it is worth doing the rst time, it is worth doing again. This brings me to a great point, which is, some things are worth repeating while other things are not. It is trying to nd out the difference between these two that makes life challenging. I do not mind repeating things if I am in charge of what I am repeating. I think we all should choose what we are going to repeat. For example, I wish I could choose a year to repeat. If I could repeat any year, it would be 1971. That year represents the greatest con in the history of mankind. I am not sure anything like it has ever happened before or since. That was the year I married a young lady who turned out to be the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. What bothers me about this is why did she really marry me? Was it my charm and good looks or did she think I was rich? There have been times I have wanted to query her on this very subject but then, I am always afraid she will tell me the truth. I do not mind the truth of it does not involve anything personally. I just will settle with the fact that that was the year I conned her into marrying me. We have been a great team ever since. She has kept me straight and I have given her opportunities to exercise that career, which she has become quite pro cient. One of the great things resulting from this marriage is the fact that she has been faithful to point out my mistakes. Through her help, I discovered I have quite a few mistakes. I begin every year with a clean slate. I am able to celebrate Jan. 1 with no mistakes whatsoever but then the next day my wife begins the ominous task of pointing out my mistakes. This is a joint effort, which leaves me out of joint often. I have a little theory along this line. I think that if it is a mistake you have made before it should not count anymore. I think the only thing that should be legitimate to point out are new mistakes. I nd myself so busy practicing my old mistakes that I rarely get around to making new mistakes. All these years I have reveled in my old mistakes. Trying to nd something new is a great strain on my little grey cells. At this point in my life, they are exhausted and are encouraging me to rely upon those old mistakes and give them a well-deserved rest. At my stage in life I think new is overrated and, if experience is anything, something new is always taxing and in more ways than one. Do not let the government nd out that you have something new or Uncle Sam will come knocking at your door with a gentle request for tax money. There is an old saying that says insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results. Well, that does not describe me. I do not want different results. I like the results I have. I like doing the same thing over again because I know what to expect. And if ignorance in this area is bliss, I am the most blissful person on the planet. My challenge this year is to surprise my wife with some unexpected new mistakes. Just one! To get on the right track for the New Year, I start with the Bible. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). Instead of just celebrating the New Year, I plan also to celebrate that new creature in Christ. No mistake about it. Dr. James L.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A11 Wednesday, January 2, 2013 By MATTHEW BEATON mbeaton@pcnh.com WEST BAY No new boat ramp will be built on the recently donated property at RiverCamps on Crooked Creek until the Bay County Commission weighs in on the plans during a public meeting, a county ofcial said Wednesday. Assistant County Man ager Dan Shaw said the county has accepted the property from the St. Joe Co. but done little else. The 7.56acre parcel sits on Crooked Creek off TiTi Road in the RiverCamps development just north of County 388. The deed lists boat ramp as a specic use for the property, which must be put toward recreational purposes. We have been negoti ating with St. Joe for the land for the better part of a year and with the intent of putting a boat ramp on the property, Shaw said. The commission took heat from Friends of Crooked Creek at its meet ing last week, as the group implored the commission ers not to build a boat ramp on the property. Shaw gave assurances Wednesday that county staff will solicit the commissions input before proceeding with any nal plans. I dont think we can move forward on building it without getting the direction of the board. Thats impor tant, he said. Thus far, no such discus sion item has been placed on Tuesdays meeting agenda, but Shaw said the talk de nitely will happen at a public meeting. There was confusion at last weeks meeting when the land was accepted on a 5-0 vote. Commissioner Guy Tunnell had to repeat his motion multiple times and it was laced with verbiage about a no-wake zone and getting input from nearby residents for the lands de velopment. There also was discussion about what type of boat launch it would be one exclusive to canoes and kayaks or a standard ce ment boat ramp. Were going to have to hear from the commission as to how they want it devel oped, Shaw said. If and when the boat ramp is built, the county wants to shut down the Crooked Creek boat launch at County 388, which is less than 1,000 feet from the donated parcel. The county wants to close it because of vehicles and trailers that park in the right of way along County 388. Shaw said the county has not completed any designs or begun the permitting process, but it is doing pre liminary work, looking at the lands characteristics and how it can be developed. Weve got things that we can be doing right now that we are doing so were not on hold, he said. Friends of Crooked Creek spokeswoman Barbara Gud gel said the commissions ac tions in accepting the prop erty were very deceptive. Tunnell told her the boat ramp would not be voted on at last weeks meeting, but the commissions decision to accept the property allows county staff to decide what type of boat ramp will be built and requires no further commission action. After the meeting, Com missioner Mike Thomas said legally the only way the boat ramp must come be fore the commission again is for budgetary approval provided it has an expense of $50,000 or more. Gudgel also said there will be a public meeting on the boat ramp, so area residents can have their say. She said Tunnell told a Friends of Crooked Creek member the meeting would happen and might be held at RiverCamps. But, its unknown when any of these discussions will take place. Asked if county staff would solicit the com missions input at its second meeting in January, Shaw said he was unsure. Im still trying to gure out what I got for Christ mas, he said.
