Jerry Pate
The legendary golfer has been appointed to a three-year term on the board of directors of the nonprofit Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida. Early in his golfing career, Pate garnered eight PGA Tour victories and seven foreign wins, including the 1976 United States Open and the Tournament Players Championship in 1982. Since 1977, his company, Jerry Pate Design, has developed award-winning golf courses. The company worked on the Vince Whibbs Sr. Community Maritime Park, Blue Wahoos Stadium and Admiral Mason Park.

Baskerville-Donovan, Inc.
The engineering firm donated $20,000 of the $38,000 cost for planning and design services of a Miracle League baseball field in Tiger Point Park in Santa Rosa County. The new ballpark will include special rubberized, wheelchair-friendly baseball fields, sidewalks and paths, dugouts, bleachers and fencing. Plans are for construction to start in the fall after the ball season ends. The Miracle League of Santa Rosa County hopes to welcome its first baseball players by the spring of 2019.

Dan Lindemann & Jerry Holzworth
The two citizens challenged Mayor Ashton Hayward over the $50 per year lease given to the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission to build a fish hatchery and won when the agency requested last week that the City of Pensacola terminate the contract. News of the request prompted criticism of Lindemann and Holzworth for costing the city the $18.7-million project, but Gov. Rick Scott silenced the critics when he told the media that the hatchery would be built at a yet-to-be-determined site in Escambia County.
