JEREMY RAINES
News Staff
Monday night, Washington
County School Board was pre-
sented two different cost options to
the overcrowding problem at Kate
M. Smith Elementary School.
SFor months the Board has been
trying to find a way to relieve some
of the overcrowding at the school
and the traffic congestion on the
roads surrounding the school.
One option that was discussed
was to build a new facility for stu-
dents in third through fifth grade.
Deputy Superintendent Mike
Welch presented cost estimates to
the board of the additional staff
that would be required to run the
new facility.
. It would cost just under $500,000
a year to add the necessary staff to
the facility, he said.
The second option was to build a
fifth-grade wing at Roulhac Middle
School.
Welch explained that a pad was
already on site to build an ad-
ditional 10 classrooms and move
the fifth- grade students over.
S"This would eljninate some of
the overcrowding at Kate Smith
and would only require as few as
three new staff members," said
Welch.
He showed the board a detailed
drawing of %here the new build- .
ing would be located and explained
that the infrastructure was already
in place to handle the change
over.
"The only problem would be
how to handle the lunch room
problems," Welch added.
- It was then mentioned that the
existing lunch room could be
expanded and additional lunch
personnel hired to handle the ad-
ditional load.
SBoard Member John Hawkins
asked, "What kind of interaction
would the fifth grade have with the
older students?"
SWelch explained that the only
time they would interact would be
during lunch and at the library.
The board all agreed that build-
ing the additional wing at RMS
would be the more cost effective,
and instructed Superintendent
Calvin Stevenson to come back
With some numbers for them to
review.
SThe board saw a slide presen-
tation given by Anita McClendon
and Mollie Roberts of the One Stop
Career Center.
SThey outlined all the courses of
study and explained the various
programs available to the public.
: The One Stop Center helped
vder 250 people in 2004 and spent
over $147,000 in training and sup-
port services.
Also on hand at the meeting
were members of the Chipley High
School soccer team.
Stevenson recognized the team
for their successful season and for
advancing to the playoffs in their
first year in district play.
The soccer team lost to Provi-
dence High School in Jacksonville
last week.
Jack Baker, the architect at the
Vernon High School project, was
on hand to give an update on the
school.
"We are finally getting to a point
were you can see some progress
being made. Footers are being
poured and we're moving for-
ward," said Baker.


Four students from the Vernon High School
Band were chosen to participate in the Florida Music
Educators Association's 2005 Small Schools Honor
Band Jan. 6-8 in Tampa. They are, above from left,
Myron Washington, Mike Merring, Johnathon Miller
and, at right, Elliot Grantham. Students participating
in this event were selected from their district and then
went through on-site auditions for their chair part in
their instrumental sections. Their concert was presented
Saturday, Jan. 8 in the Tampa Convention Center.

During the statewide Step Up, Florida event, sponsored by the Florida Department of Health, many
area children participated in the Washington County Health's Department salute to the day, held
last Monday at Shivers Park in Chipley. Vernon Elementary School students, from left; Avery Moon,
Genny Kunkel and Sy Seley take their choice of complimentary exercise-related items, provided
by the local health department staff.

Lady turnip grown
by Dalton Carter : -I;
of Wausau. It
weighed three pounds
when harvested. The
pint jar in the pho-
tograph is to give an
idea of just how big
this monster is. Carter
initially fertilized the
giant with a 10-10-10
commercial fertilizer. .

CHERYL WITHROW
Managing Editor
Vernon City Council members
agreed to move forward with many
items that have required consid-
erable research and review.
During Monday night's session,
they adjusted garbage rates to re-
flect changes in the consumer price
index (CPI), agreed to go ahead
with annual backflow inspections
and approved the first reading of a
grease trap ordinance.
A 24-cent increase in garbage
rates, governed by city policy,
which allows the city to recoup
increases based on the CPI and im-
posed by their garbage collection
contractor, Waste Management,
was unanimously approved fol-
lowing a motion by Councilman
John Paul Cook Jr. and a second by
Councilman David Austin. The in-
crease will become effective with
the April utility bill.
Backflow inspections are late
this year, but will now be ac-
complished by a local, certified
inspector, Jimmy Cook, following
a unanimous vote of Council.
Cook provided the only bid for
the service. He said any repairs
needed on larger backflows will be
approved through the city before
work is done...
Because the city has had a multi-
tude of problems with grease in its
sewer system, they directed their
legal counsel to look into an ordi-
nance that can be enforced.
City Attorney Kerry Adkison
has spent considerable time re-
searching and adjusting a grease
trap ordinance.
The offered document explains
what can and cannot go into the
system. It is based on state of
Florida building codes.
A maintenance section is also in-
cluded in the proposed ordinance.
Those that do not comply will have
service shut down until repairs are
made and the system cleared by a
qualified grease trap inspector.
Those that do not have grease
traps, but are required by the ordi-
nance to do so, will have 90 days
to comply, once the ordinance is
enacted.
After a motion by Councilman
Alan Downs and a second by Cook,
Council unanimously approved a
first reading of the ordinance, a
complete copy of which will be
advertised for a public hearing to
be held in the near future. If ap-
proved at the public hearing, the
ordinance will become part of the
laws of the city of Vernon.
Adkison also passed out a pre-
liminary purchasing policy for the
city.
"It is in compliance with state
law," he said. "We want to make
sure purchases are done fairly."
Council agreed to review the
proposed document, and will
revisit the matter at a future meet-
ing.
In addition, Adkison said he
has arranged a meeting at a lo-
cal church concerning ownership
of land where a city lift station is
located.

February 7 designated as 'Food


Check-Out Day' in Washington County


Dr. Thelma Wood, representing T.J. Roulhac Activi-
ties and Enrichment Center, informs Kiwanians about
the difference the program is making in the community.
Members heard the program helps between 50 and 60,
K-12 students each day from 2 to 6 p.m., providing
a variety of services including drug awareness infor-
mation and tutoring with school work. "Volunteers and
donations are needed," Wood said. To find out how to
get involved, call 638-2115.


Between Jan. 1 and Feb.
7 the average American
earned enough income to
pay for his or her family's
entire 2005 food supply,
food eaten outside of as well
as within the home.
"Americans enjoy the
safest, most abundant
and most affordable food
supply on earth," Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said.
"Based on U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture statis-
tics, it just takes 37 days
for the average American
to earn enough disposable
income to pay for his or her
family's food supply for the
entire year.
Thanks to modem farm-
ing techniques, America's
farmers and ranchers are
producing more food on
fewer acres, leaving more


open space for wildlife
habitat. Precision farming
practices boost crop yields
and overall efficiency by
using satellite maps and
computers to match seed,
fertilizer and crop protec-
tion applications to local
soil conditions.
"Food Check-Out Day is
a celebration of the bounty
from America's farms and
ranches and how that boun-
ty is shared with American
consumers through afford-
able food prices," said
Carl Loop, president of
the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation. "Compared
to other expenses facing
America's families, food is
bargain. While Americans
must only work until early
February to pay for their
yearly supply of food, last
year they had to work until


April 11 to pay for their
taxes."
The idea of Food Check-
Out Day was developed by
the American Farm Bureau
Women's Committee and
was first observed in 1998
with an event in Chicago.
Since then, observances
have been held yearly.
More than 24 million
American workers, rep-
resenting 17 percent of
the total U.S. workforce,
produce, process, sell and
trade the nation's food and*
fiber. However, only 4.6
million of those people live
on farms, which is slightly
less than two percent of the
total U.S. population. There
are 2.13 million farms dot-
ting America's landscape.
Florida's 44,000 com-
mercial farmers grow more
than 280 different crops.


Florida is the nation's "win-
ter salad bowl," providing
80 percent of the fresh veg-
etables grown in the United
States during January, Feb-
ruary and March each year.
Year-round, Florida ranks
number two nationally in
the U.S. production of fresh
vegetables. Agriculture is
Florida's second-leading
industry next to tourism,
and has an estimated overall
economic impact of more
than $62 billion annually.
The Florida Farm Bureau
Federation is the state's
largest general-interest ag-
ricultural association with
more than 151,000 member-
famiies statewide and Farm
Bureaus in 62 counties.
Headquartered in Gaines-
ville, the federation is an
independent, non-profit
agricultural organization.

accompany him to the
session.
During his regular report,
Boswell, who was recently
returned to office unop-
posed, reviewed repairs on
the city's Jet-vac truck, pav-
ing on Dawkins and Sapp
streets and the purchase of
a backhoe.
"The Jet-vac truck has
been out of service since
before (Hurricane) Ivan,"
he said. "It's been down
too long."
The truck in question
was run without oil by a
city employee, which blew
the engine.
Boswell then advised
SCouncil he was going to
get a mechanic to look at it
next week.
During discussion of the
Smatter, itwas determined.
that after the diesel engine..
was reworked, a serious
transmission malfunction
was discovered.
Boswell then said pav-
ing done on the aforemen-
tioned streets was not done
according to Florida De-
partment of Transportation
(DOT) specifications.
He was irked with the
substandard paving job.
Acknowledging the poor
job, Boswell said, "We held
the money and sent them on


their merry way."
In reference to the city's
backhoe, Boswell said the
machine is so weak, it can-
not perform as needed.
He told Council, a new
backhoe would cost ap-
proximately $60,000.
A motion to purchase a
backhoe at state bid price,
made by Cook and sec-
onded by Downs, drew a
question from Austin.
"Where's the money
coming from?" he asked.
After council unani-
mously approved the pur-
chase, Council decided to
commit utility tax monies
for the purchase.
Since those funds will
not be freed from their ob-
ligation associated with the
recent paving of Dawkins
Street, it was decided to
pursue adloan for the back-
hoe, which will be paid off
when the funds are released
in four to five months.
Because of increased
responsibilities and an
outstanding evaluation,
two city employees will
received raises.
Cook recommended
Gerald Ward be given the
responsibility for inventory
control.
Boswell agreed.
"We need a custodian


of inventory," he acknowl-
edged.
A motion by Cook to
increase Ward's respon-
sibilities which includes
inventory control, coupled
with a 25-cent pay in-
crease, was unanimously
approved.
Cook also recommended,
following an outstanding
evaluation, that City Clerk
Sherry Cobb also be given
a 25-cent raise.
In justification of the
raise, Cook recalled that
he recently covered City
Hall for five hours while
Cobb was out of the office,
Cook said, "It definitely
gives you an appreciation
for what those ladies do."
The fact that Deputy
Clerk Anita Miner has
left the city was also ad-
dressed. -- .
Council agreed to ad-


vertise the position, which
will be a full-time, 35-hour
job for the person hired to
fill the vacancy.
In another personnel
matter, Council will meet
on Feb. 24, at 7 p.m., to
review applications for
the position of recreation
director. Cobb said there
are five applications/bids
in her office as of close of
business Monday. Feb. 18 is
the deadline to apply.
As is the case at most
meetings, Robert Sim-
mons, the city's engineer,
was on hand to give an up-
date about the waste water
treatment project.
He said Boswell and Bob

The hospital: A response


Dear Editor:
I read, with interest, Ole Ellis'letter
to the editor in the Washington Coun-
ty News concerning the 2003 decision
of the Washington County Commis-
sioners to lease the NWF Community
Hospital to NWF Healthcare, Inc. As
one of the commissioners serving dur-
ihg the time this decision was made,
I'm not sure what Mr. Ellis was refer-
ring to when he stated that there was
"considerable public debate and de-
tailed discussion" prior to leasing the
hospital. *
As a matter of fact, the CEO of
NWF Healthcare, Inc. refused to con-
sider a public hearing to allow the
citizens an opportunity to voice their
opinion. Mr. Ellis also mentioned that
the county's interest was well-protect-
ed by leasing to NWF Heathcare, Inc.
and "sufficient performance standards
are in place."
What performance standards? Mr.
Schlenker, the CEO, recently refused
to attend a county commissioners
meeting to answer questions about the
hospital's quarterly report on expen-
ditures of the $3 million that Wash-
ington County gave him.
At the regularly scheduled Jan.
27, county commissioners meeting,
the commission was presented with
a petition containing 239 signatures
of Washington County citizens. The
petition requested a letter from the.
commissioners to the State's Attorney
asking for an in-depth investigation
of the leasing of the NWF Commu-
nity Hospital to NWF Healthcare, Inc.
Why is Mr. Ellis and some of the for-
mer commissioners concerned about
this requested investigation?
As one of the commissioners serv-
ing Washington County at that time,
I applaud the investigation. I can't,


imagine that anyone, with nothing to
hide, would be the least bit concerned.
As discussed in the January county
commissioners meeting, the results
of an investigation of this deal should
resolve the matter. In reference to Mr.
Ellis' statement about this investiga-
tion being an "unnecessary spending
of money, time, and effort," I think
that the accountability of county com-
missioners in spending borrowed
money is worth this minor expense.
My question is, why does Mr. Ellis
think he is more qualified than the 239
taxpaying citizens, on the petition, to
determine whether a "right decision"
was made in 2003 to lease the hospi-
tal? Two of the commissioners who
agreed with Ole that this was the right
decision were voted out of office in
the last election. Mr. Ellis said in his
letter to editor that many had asked
him, "What can be done about the
hospital situation to stop the needless
distractions and unnecessary spend-
ing on lawsuits?"
My initial response would be, "Why
would anyone ask Ole?" I invite ev-
eryone to attend county commission-
ers meetings and ask questions or call
me at home anytime. I do agree with
Mr. Ellis' last statement asking every-
one to get involved by calling your
county commissioners.
I also believe in Washington Coun-
ty and its bright future, including a
quality hospital. But I also believe in
allowing the will of the people to be
heard and that commissioners must
be accountable for their decisions and
actions.

Members of the Vernon Yellow Jackets
varsity and junior varsity squads partici-
pated in Saturday's annual blue/orange
baseball game. The fund-raiser event
began around 11 a.m., and continued
throughout the day. Observers included
parents, students and local resident, hun-
gry for the sounds of baseball, the crack
of the bat as it connects for a line drive,
the pop as a fast ball burns the catcher's
hands, to name a few. Enthusiasm was:
the name of the game as members of both
teams battled through the day.

Perry's

Prattle


by Judge Perry E. Wells, ret.

j


My departure from
the local radio station
after almost 22 years of
broadcasting has brought
a reaction from my listen-
ers that I find to be over-
whelming. I do appreciate
every call, every card and
the comments as I come
in contact with those who
listened to me each Sat-
urday morning. You have
told me that you not only
depended on me to pres-
ent the type of music you
enjoyed but, also, to keep
listeners posted on current
and upcoming events and
especially announcing the
local obituaries.
As I pondered my de-
cision to terminate the
broadcast, I went so far
in my thoughts to try to
imagine a Saturday morn-
ing without going to the
WBGC radio station. I
thought of the story which
I heard so many years ago
of the man who worked at
a sawmill near his home
for more than 30 years.
Finally, he had to call it
quits and retire from the
mill. He admitted that he
left his employment feel-
ing certain that no one
could fill his job. The first
morning after leaving the
mill, he acknowledged
that he got up at the usual
time and actually listened
to determine if the mill
whistle would blow that
day, getting the workers
started on their respective
jobs..-
The whistle did sound
at the appointed time, and
the retired man began to
wonder just who the saw-
mill could have hired to
take his place. About 10
a.m., he could not stand
the suspense any longer.
He proceeded to walk thie
short distance to the for-
mer place of employment.
To his surprise, he found a


16-year-old boy operating
the piece of equipment
that it had taken him 30
years to learn.
When I tuned into
WBGC on my home radio
Saturday, I found the sta-
tion obviously off the air
as no sound whatsoever
was coming through my
set. After a few minutes,
and after one telephone
call from a listener, asking
if I knew why the station
was silent, I did dial the
familiar number, 638-
0234, and immediately
got the voice mail service.
I left the message that no
signal was being received
from the station. I left
my radio set to WBGC
and went about my daily
activities. Just before 11
a.m., music began to play
on my; radio and I knew
the broadcast was back
on. No one has told me
what happened, but I feel
that the computer clock
had not been re-set to
cover the change in the
Saturday broadcast. My
brother, Max, who always
has the right answer in
such situations, told me
that I was honored with
a three-hour silence on
WBGC, thus paying
tribute to my long years
of service. This is the
same brother, Max, who
recently told me that
while working a recent
newspaper crossword
puzzle, the clue was a
seven-letter \ ord nmean-
ing "wind bag." Guess
what the answer was?
"prattler?!! Thanks a lot,
brother Max.
In my article regard-
ing my leaving the radio
program, I think I named
all those who had worked
along with me down
through the years. For the
past several days, I have
thought of those who got


their start in broadcasting
at WBGC since the sta-
tion opened here in April
1956.
Al Roberts, cur-
rent news director at
WTVY-TV in Dothan,
Ala., started his career in
Chipley. So did Tom Ne-
bel, a Chipley native, who
formerly worked at the
local station in his high
school years and then on
to the Dothan TV station,
reaching the status of
meteorologist for several
years before moving on to
better things. Tom's par-
ents are Rudy and Martha
Nebel.
Leo Barfield, another
Chipley product, worked
at WBGC in its early
years of broadcasting.
Leo is now a broadcast
engineer at WFSU-TV,
the Public Television Sta-
tion in Tallahassee. Leo's
proud parents in Chipley
are John and Jeanette
Barfield.
Don Milton, Jerry Tyre,
the late Larry "Bud"
Bruner, Howard Harris,
Ron Kelley, Tom Fleet-
wood and Mary Miles
(Rememer "Mary in the
Morning?") all had a
stint at the WBGC radio
microphones.
Many individuals in
WBGC's long history of
broadcasting have had
radio programs of their
own. Of course, we all
recall the late J..Harvey
Ethridge of Boniif@Ay io-
established a memorable
early morning newscast
on our local station which
he carried on for many
years. Maybe exceeding
him in longevity would
be A.A. "Coach" Rob-
inson, who initiated the
"Sunday Morning Spiri-
tual" broadcast from 8:00
a.m. until 9:30 a.m. each
Sunday.


Rev. Jerome Ramsey
and Rev. Luther Farmer
assisted Coach Robin-
son. We have now lost
A.A. Robinson and Je-
rome Ramsey in death.
That program remains
on WBGC each Sunday
morning with Geraldine
Campbell and Tony Rob-
inson hosting.
In the past several
weeks, I have heard Jose-
phine Robinson, widow of
the coach, assisting with
the broadcast, especially
in announcing the local
news and obituaries.
.Even though Perry
Wells is no longer heard
on WBGC radio in
Chipley, his interest in
radio broadcasting, and
especially radio pro-
gramming in our area,
remains a high priority.
I feel that a radio sta-
tion in a community is
just as important as the
local newspaper, banks,
doctors, dentist, lawyers,
automotive mechanics,
retail outlets of all kinds
and many other wide
range of services neces-
sary for a growing area.
Now, maybe the thrust
of my activities will be
more devoted to Perry's
Prattle and becom-
ing more active in the
Heritage of Washington
County Book project
that is currently being
assembled for printing,
hopefully, in the year
2005.'
See you all next week.


WBGC 1240 ,*


A.A. (Coach) Robinson, a highly respected
and beloved Roulhac Middle School coach
for a generation of Washington County
students, also had a long and enjoyable tenure
as a radio personality on WBGC in Chipley.
For many years, Coach hosted the "Sunday
Morning Spiritual" broadcast on the local
radio station. The program is still carried each
Sunday morning and is the longest continuing
broadcast on WBGC.

You would never leave this on

when you leave the room.

So why do we leave unnecessary lights on? Electric current is like water
it flows. If you could see electric current, you 'd probably be more
careful about turning off unnecessary power drains. It may only take
pennies a day to burn light bulb, but take a penny, double the amount
every day, and in 30 days ...

The entire world was
shaken when Southeast
Asia was devastated by the
tsunami, destroying lives
and leaving millions home-
less, many of them children.
In the wake of this disaster,
Carolyn Sasser and Caro-
lyn's Fashions in downtown
Chipley decided to make a
contribution by hosting a
fund-raiser in the form of a
beauty pageant.
The Girls and Boys Eas-
ter Pageant will be held on
Saturday, March 19, at the
Washington County Agri-
cultural Center on Hwy 90
in Chipley. The pageant is
open to girls, ages birth to
22 years and boys, birth to
seven years.
Each category will have
a king or queen as well as
a first and second runner-
up. The king or queen will
receive a crown, satin ban-
ner, trophy and gift. The
runner-ups will receive a
satin banner, trophy and gift.
Each contestant will receive
a gift and a 5x7 glossy photo
taken at the pageant in their
pageant wear.
The bulk of the pageant
proceeds will be donated
to Warm Blankets Orphan
Care International to spon-
sor children orphaned in
Southeast Asia by the tsu-
nami. Warm /Blankets is a
Christian based charitable


organization dedicated to
the rescue of orphans and
widows in third world
countries.
Currently, they are fo-
cusing efforts in Southeast
Asia, reuniting orphans with
extended family members
and finding home place-
ments for those who lost
everything
As this pageant is a fund-
raiser, contestants may have
pageant fees waived by col-
lecting a minimum of $150
in donations. For those col-
lecting the greatest amounts
in donations, there will be
an overall sponsorship king
and queen crowned.
Any businesses or indi-
viduals wishing to donate
funds, gifts, or services for
door prizes should contact
Carolyn Sasser at (850)
638-8386 or email her at
bowsbycarolyn@aol.com
Pageant applications can
be picked up at Carolyn's
Fashions on Railroad Av-
enue in downtown Chipley
and in many other loca-
tions around the area. Ap-
plications may be mailed
in, faxed or dropped off at
Carolyn's.
Pageant fees and/or
donations may be paid by
cash, check, or credit card.
The pageant is open to all
contestants, regardless of
area of residence.

Hi, I'm

SDr. Stuart

Steiger
Did you know that becoming cer-
tified as a chiropractor requires a mini-
mum of six years of college training?
e I hold degrees in education from Fair-
leigh Dickinson University of Teaneck,
New Jersey, and from Life Chiropractic
College, Marietta, Georgia. While in college, I received
Cum Laude honors. Since college, I have received special
training in disability evaluations, independent medical
examinations, and manipulation under anesthesia, and
was appointed Chairman of the Deparment of Chiropractic
Services at the Gulf Pines Hospital in Port St. Joe, Florida.
I have visited a number of other chiropractic clinics to
study their methods and procedures including: treatment
of whiplash injuries, treatment of disc problems, and treat-
ment of headaches.
Additionally, I previously owned and operated Steiger
Clinic of Chiropractic in Panama City between 1983 and
1994. In 1995 I1 associated with and ran the Back and Neck
Pain Clinic of America in South St. Petersburg office where
I treated many auto accident injury cases in conjunction
with medical orthopedic, neurology and pain specialists.
This is the kind of training and professionalism I offer
you. If you have hesitated visiting a chiropractor, perhaps
you didn't know that chiropractors go to such lengths to
continue their education and provide you with the latest
techniques and the most qualified service. So, you see
what you don't know, can't help you. Call me today and
et me help you.
Are you suffering from any of these symptoms?
Back Pain Headaches Shoulder Pain Painful Joints
Neck Pain Arthritis Arm/Leg Pain Stiffness
Numbness Bursitis Hip Pain Tingling
And, because most insurance companies recognize and
cover chiropractic care, your treatment can beat little or
no cost to you, according to the limits of your insurance
policy. To encourage you to try chiropractic, please
accept this offer:
YOUR INITIAL SPINAL EXAMINATION
A $95.00 VALUE...FOR ONLY $27.00 (A $68.00 SAVINGS)
This examination will include an orthopedic test,
a neurological test, a spinal alignment check, an

Ponce de Leon and Chipley advance to playoffs


Ponce de Leon's Lady Pirates take time to pose with their Championship trophy
following the game.

Pirates take top honor in district


JEREMY RAINES
Sports Editor
What a great girls
district tournament the
District 2-2A tournament
ended up being.
The hands down fa-
vorites heading into the
district tournament were
Chipley and Ponce de
Leon.
Pretty much everyone
was pumped and excited
about the possible match
up of two teams that stayed
in the state polls for the
majority of the season.
But several teams had
upset on their minds and,
Holmes County nearly
pulled it off against PdL
on Thursday night.
Both teams share' a ha-
tred foreach other seldom
matched on the basketball
court.
Both teams possess a
talented lineup and strong
post players which meant
for a long night on the
court.
The teams battled for
four periods and felt like
they needed another five
minutes to decide the
outcome as the game
went into overtime when
Brianna Belser hit a
three-point shot with just
seconds remaining.
In' overtime, Ponce de
Leon found a way to pull
out the win and advance to
the finals against Chipley
who had earlier destroyed
South Walton by a score


of 66-35.
The Tigers jumped out
early and rah away with
the win.
Emi McCullough led the
way with 17 points, Nikki
Jackson had 15, Rachel
McIntyre finished with 13,
and Tiffany Owens pitched
in with seven.
The championship
game was set and the two
district juggernauts were
set to battle for the district
crown.
Both teams entered the
game with five loses and
a split of the two games
played during the regular
season.
The gym was filled
to near capacity and the
stands were rocking asfthe
two teams took the court.
The much anticipated
match up was set and the
game was all it was sup-
posed to be.
The two teams tried to
set the tempo early and
went to their inside play-
ers to try to establish an
offensive pattern.
Chipley pulled ahead at
the end of the first period
to collect a 15-12 lead.
Ponce de Leon picked
up the defense in the sec-
ond period and held the
Tigers in check and they
took a two-point edge into
the locker room at the half,
24-22.
Both teams came out
fired up in the second half
and Chipley outscored the


Lady Pirates, 12-11, to cut
the lead to just one heading
into the fourth period.
It was in the fourth
period that PdL imposed
their will on the Lady Ti-
gers and pulled away in the
final minutes to capture the
district crown, 57-46.
Lacey Griffin of PdL
lead all scorers with 25
points and 11 rebounds,
while Nikole Hamilton
added 15 points and 10
rebounds in the win. Oth-
ers playing well for the
Lady Pirates were Mary
Howes with 10 points, Cat
Tinsley with seven points
and Maggie Wright with
six assists.
Leading the way for the
Lady Tigers was Emi Mc-
Cullough .with 14 points,
Nikki Jackson with 12
points and Erica Sewell
and Whitney Thomas with
six each.
The Lady Pirates will
be at home against Jay on
Thursday night to open
the playoffs, while Chi-
pley will be on the road
to face Baker the same
night.
Both teams were de-
serving of the title and
will probably face off
again later in the play-
offs:
The opening round of
the tournament saw Hol-
mes County knock off
Vernon and South Walton
edge Freeport to advance
to the semi finals.


Chipley's girls basketball team hold their runner-up trophy following a disap-
pointing loss.

.OI.


PdL's Mary Howes blocks HCHS guard Brianna Belser's lay-up attempt to set
the tone for the game.


Lindsey Tomlin hits a shot over the PdL defender.


Holmes County took the
opening tip-off against
Vernon and dominated
the entire game. The
Devils used that mo-
mentum to challenge
Ponce de Leon the fol-
lowing night.


Nicole Barbee hits a three-point shot in the opening
period against Vernon. The Devil's scored 12 unan-
swered points in the first period.

JEREMY RAINES

to a surprising end last
Thursday as the Gracev-
ille Tigers knocked the
Wildcats out of the dis-
trict tournament with a
58-55 loss.
The two teams split
their season series and
were both ranked in the
top ten of the Class 1A
state polls.
Bethlehem entered the
game ranked fifth while
Graceville was ranked
ninth.
The Wildcats opened the
game with their strategy to
stop the Lady Tigers lead-
ing scorer, Gaemi Britt,
who averaged over 20
points per game, and they
did just that.


semi-finals, 58-55


The problem was the
rest of the Graceville
squad stepped up to the
challenge as the Lady
Tigers had four girls in
double digit scoring.
After trailing by 13
points late in the fourth
period, the Lady Wildcats
cut the lead to three points
with just minutes to play.
"We had a chance to
win that game and it just
slipped away, but our
girls played hard," said
Bethlehem Coach Tim
Clemmons.
The Wildcats were led
by Jessica Lewis with 18
points and- 13 rebounds,
Erica Daughtry with 11
points, and Nichole Ward
with 10 points, four assists
and four steals. Also play-
ing well was Ashley Pitts
with nine points, four as-
sists and four steals.


The Lady Wildcats
advanced to the semifinal
game on Tuesday night
with a win over Altha,
62-25.
The Wildcats made
quick work of the Purple
Cats and were able to rest
several key starters.
Nichole Ward lead all
scorers with 14 points, five
assists and five rebounds.
Also playing well were
Emily Harrison with 11
points and Jessica Lewis
with eight points and seven
rebounds.
The Lady Wildcats fin-
ished the season with a
record of 16-6.
"I am proud of the effort
the girls gave in the game,
we made the game close af-
ter being down early in the
game, they really worked
hard all season long," said
coach Tim Clemmons.

FWC lowers land requirements

for nuisance doe permits


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) ap-
proved last week a new rule
that will grant small-acre-
age farmers the same lat-
itude larger growers have
in controlling nuisance
deer on their property dur-
ing the hunting season,
Previously, only land-
owners with more than
640 acres could get per-
mits to take antlerless deer
during the hunting season.
Antlerless deer include


does and bucks with vis-
ible antlers less than five
inches long. The new rule
will enable the FWC to is-
sue antlerless deer permits
to farmers who received
deer depredation permits
for crop damage within
the previous 12 months
regardless of the amount
of acreage owned.
Beginning July 1, per-
sons possessing this per-
mit and associated tags can
take antlerless deer during
the muzzleloading, archery


and general gun seasons
while on their property.
The rule does not apply
to hunting reserves or land
mainly used for hunting.
"This will mainly
cover commercial crops,
including people that use
there crops for produce
stands," said an official at
FWC.
"Were not going to issue
them to people that just
want to shot more does
during hunting season," he
added.

trict rival Vernon.

besides Johns 26 points,
eight rebounds and two
steals, was the team
shooting 9-of-11 from
the free throw line."
"Shooting 82% from
the line was a welcome
sight and I am proud of
our team," he added.
The Holmes County
boys junior varsity bas-
ketball team completed
a three game three win
week beating the South
Walton Seahawks at their
place 43-41.
With the Seahawks
playing well and the
Blue Devils playing
flat, this was a battle
throughout and the game
was not decided until the
final horn.
With two emotional,
high energy games for the
Devils against the Walton
Braves and the Vernon
Yellow Jackets on Tues-
day and Thursday they
seemed to be completely
dead-legged on Friday
against a much improved


South Walton team
"We played like a tired
team tonight, our legs just
weren't there and we had
a hard time trying to find
any kind of rhythm. We
were very fortunate to
come away with a win
tonight," says Coach Jeff
Medley who's Blue Dev-
ils missed 14 free throw
attempts.
Leading the Blue Dev-
ils was Jamarious Johns
with 17 points, six re-
bounds and three steals,
and Geo Works with 12
points and seven steals.
Coach Medley said,
"Geo was the one bright
spot at the free throw
line tonight, going five
for six in the second
half."
Caleb Johnson added
seven points seven re-
bounds and and Michael
Johnson four points
- five rebound seven
steals. The Blue Devils
improved their record
to 13-6.
