Chipley police

arrest 14 in

The Chipley Police Department
reports the end of a four-month nar-
cotic investigation named operation
"New Year Round-Up" in a news
release Friday afternoon.
"Undercover officers have spent
the last four months buying illegal
drugs from known drug dealers in
the City of Chipley," said Chipley
Police Chief Kevin Crews in the
news release.
The operation resulted in the
arrest of 14 suspects with two sus-
pects still at large.
Fourteen of those arrested are
charged with the sale and delivery
of cocaine, while the other two sus-
pects are charged with the sale and
delivery of pharmaceutical drugs.
Arrested in the first phase:
Jeremiah (Jamal) Riley, Chipley;
Samantha Hardtick, Chipley; Chris
Hardriek;Ghipley -Chris Gilyard-
Chipley; Chris Simmons, Chipley;
Jason Haines, Chipley; Jimmy
Tindell,'Chipley; Jamie Spires,
Chipley; Glenda Pettus, Chipley;
Tina Pierce, Bonifay; Taj Wright,
Chipley; James Everett, Caryville;
Annie Harper, Wausau; and Kar-
riece Davis, Panama City
Two suspects that are not yet
apprehended are. Charles Lee of
Bonifay and Danural Daffin of
Chipley. Both are charged with the
distribution of cocaine with ad-
ditional charges placed on Daffin
for battery on a law enforcement
officer and resisting arrest with
"As most people can see, these
drug problems have an effect on ev-
ery town big or small nation wide,"
Crews said. "While we feel that our
aggressive work in narcotic inves-
tigations by the CPD is successful,
we can never stop in the perfor-
mance of our duties to eradicate
drugs in the City of Chipley.
"Several years ago the CPD
made a commitment to the people
of Chipley and today we feel just
as strong about that commitment to
our residents to fight this problem
every day," Crews said.
"As you keep up with the local
news you'll realize that several of
these dealers are repeat offenders.
As many people as we've arrested
on narcotics violations one would
think at least some would consider
getting a legal job, however, so
many still insist on what they be-
lieve is the easy dollar and as long
as they feel this way we will work
every day to put the drug dealers
in prison."

Cold or not, marchers were out to honor Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr., on Monday in downtown Chipley.

Managing Editor
Washington County celebrated
the birthday and the heritage of
the late Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr. with a parade Monday and
The parade traveled down Mar-
tin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard
to the T.J. Roulhac Enrichment
and Activity Center. The Chipley
High School JROTC, the 9th and

Carter honored with tree planting

Late state rep is
remembered by his
church, community

Staff Writer
Sometime ago, Florida chose
the third Friday in January as its
annual Arbor Day because the
state's weather at that time is
ideal for planting native trees,
such as the Sabal palm, which
is the state tree. National Arbor
Day is the last Friday in April.
Chipley Garden Club ob-
served the state-selected day Jan
18 by planting a tree in memory
of Ralph C. Carter, who died
Sept. 4, 2007.
The ceremony was held at
First Presbyterian Church in
Chipley where the former state
representative had been a mem-
ber since 1937. The Rev. David
Darrow, pastor, said Carter had
served the church as both deacon
and elder.
Louise Michaels was program
chairman for the Friday after-
noon ceremony. She introduced
the Rev. Darrow who gave the
invocation. Catherine Nelson
led the pledge and Kathy Foster,
co-president of the garden club,
welcomed guests and introduced
members of the Carter family.
Following a tribute to Carter
read by Nelson, Michaels dis-
cussed the poem "Trees" written
by Joyce Kilmer.
She said Kilmer lived from
1886 to 1918. He was a pro-
lific writer who was cut down
at 31 years of age by a German
sniper's bullet while serving in
the First World War in France,
where he is buried.
Michaels read the poem that
begins "I think I shall never see,
a poem as lovely as a tree," then
noted that a brief rhyme written
by Ogden Nash in "Song of the
Open Road" parodies Kilmer's
Nash said "I think that I shall
never see, a billboard lovely as a
tree. Indeed, unless the billboards
fall, I'll never see a tree at all."
With that, guests were invited
to visit the tree's site and hear
what one of the club's master
gardeners, John Foster, had to
say about the chosen tree, a Little
.Gem Magnolia, a slow-grower,
which should, in time, reach the
height of 25 feet.
The young tree looks looks
about six feet tall. Little Gems
bloom at a comparatively young
age, producing flowers often
from spring to late summer,
Foster said.

The late Ralph Carter's wife, Carolyn, foreground, and daughter,
Nancy Carter Cooke, "man" the shovels to finish planting the
Little Gem Magnolia.

"Flower production typi-
cally shows in intense heat," he
noted. The tree was already in
the ground, and Carter's wife,
Carolyn, and daughter, Nancy
Carter Cooke, added shovelsful
of dirt to finish the planting.
Aubrey Davis was thanked for
his contribution to the program
in providing and planting the
magnolia tree. .
While guests were. dindlor&
having refreshments furnished
by-club members, Davis re-.
mained outdoors to add mulch to,
the plot and put a ring of protec-
tive concrete fencing around the
tree's base.

Motel on its

way down

Managing Editor
The old Chipley Motel is on its
was down. Demolition is underway
on the property, which is being
funded with $150,000 from the
Chipley Redevelopment Agency.
The City bid out the demolition,
with Henry Grimes Construction
awarded the bid. The asbestos
abatement is being done by a sub-
contractor, said Assistant Public
Works Director Dan Miner. As-
bestos abatement will take about
two-and-a-half weeks. :' ;l
Jayanti "Jay" Patel agreedto sur-
render the motel as part of his plea
agreement with the State Attorney's
Office in 2007. Patel pleaded nolo
contendre (no contest) to drug-
related charges, and signed over
ownership of the motel and vacated
it as of Feb. 5.
Jay Patel and his son, Sagar
Patel, were charged in April, 2007
with multiple drug-related charges
and have since been sentanced.
Investigators found that the mo-
tel was being used by methamphet-
amine "cookers," while ingredients
used to make meth were being
sold at a nearby store leased by the'
family. There were at least three
motel rooms that contained drug
paraphernalia, drugs and additional
pseudoephedrine. Tentants in one
room were actively manufacturing
The Chipley Police Department
moved forward under the Florida
Forfeiture Contraband Act to have
the Chipley Motel property for-
feited following the arrests.
A search warrant on the Coastal
Store netted several different types
of drug paraphernalia. Pipes used
for smoking and hundreds of jew-
elry bags were confiscated.

Townhouse Restaurant Running Smoothly

121 N Waukesha St Bonifay, FL
Open 7 days a week *6am-9pm

As the Town-
house Restaurant
began its thirdfull
week of being open
Mike Alvis, owner
of the restaurant
would like to say a
few words regard-
ing his first couple
of weeks. "This
has definitely been
a learning experi-
ence.Having never
been in the restau-
rant business be-
fore, we really did
not know what to
expect. The sup-
port of our new
business far ex-
ceeded anything
we could have ever
anticipated. That
really says, a lot
about our commu-
nity and their will-
ingness to support
the local business-
es." !

The restaurant
opened the eve-
ning of Tuesday,
January 8 serving
Steak & Shrimp for
the Grand Open-
ing Special. The
morning of Janu-
ary 9 the breakfast
crowd was so enor-
mous, lunch was
off schedule. Fri-
day night, Regions
Bank sponsored
free dessert from
6-7 and the turn
out was astonish-
ing. Alvis said, "I
never would have
imagined we would
reach maximum
capacity so quickly
and, people would
be standing in the
corners and out-
side on Waukesha
St, waiting to be
seated." On the
busiest night a

business has seen,
here in a long time
the Townhouse
Restaurant was
also experiencing
equipment prob-
lems. A burner
kept going out on
the stove and the
hood was not catch-
ing all of the smoke
which made it very
unpleasant for the
customers. After
the night that Al-
vis describes as a
"disaster", chang-
es were made and
things have been
running smoothly

ever since. The
equipment has
been repaired and
is now working
wonderfully. Alvis
said that now he
would always be
prepared for the
worst, especially
since he has expe-
rienced it. He also
guarantees that an
evening like that
would never hap-
pen again.
Alvis describes
his first two weeks
as a learning
curve. "I am ex-
tremely confident

that we have all
the kinks worked
out. Things are
running smooth
and people are get-
ting their food in
a timely manner.
Our goal for lunch
is to get people out
the door within
35-40 minutes of
them walking in
the door. I know
there are still situ-
ations we have yet
to experience and
that we will learn
from, but now we
are prepared to
deal with them.

My manager Wan-
da Braswell, as
well as the rest of
my staff is doing a
great job. I would
like to thank ev-
erybody for their
patience and sup-
port during this
time and as we
continue to grow
as a business. Our
goal is to get better
every day and that
is exactly what we
are doing." Alvis
also says that he
is planning special
menu items for the
Super Bowl.

Speak, stand, vote, be counted

In these last two weeks of
January 2008 Floridians who
truly love this great country,
Sthe state of Florida, the fam-
ily structure as established
by God, and our children
need to speak up, stand up,
vote and be counted.
As I shared last week, the
'State Board of Education is
changing the text by which
our children here in Florida
will be taught and tested.
The new "Sunshine State
Standards" will teach our
children from elementary
through high school that
"Evolution is the fundamen-
tal concept underlying all
of biology and is supported
by multiple forms of scien-
tific evidence. Organisms
are classified based on their
evolutionary history. Natu-
ral selection is the primary
mechanism leading to evo-
lutionary change."
It basically makes a very
dogmatic statement that
evolution underlies all of
biology, while making no
mention of so much of the
teaching of evolution that
cannot be proved, because
it is all theory.
According to the Florida
Baptist Witness our only
hope of this being reversed
is that the SBOE will change
their minds before they meet
on Feb. 19 in Tallahassee.
The Witness reported that
"the proposed science stan-
dards were available online
at www.flstandards.org, but
the period to offer com-
ments closed Dec. 14, 2007.
Although formal comments
may no longer be taken on
the website and the final
public hearing was Jan. 8
in Miramar, interested per-
sons may continue to offer
their views to members of
the State Board of Educa-
tion at http://www.fldoe.
We were told in Decem-
ber 2007 that we had passed
611,000 signed petitions by
registered voters,to have the
Florida marriage amendment
for the state Constitution on
the next ballot, which would
state: "Inasmuch as marriage
is the legal union of only
one man and one woman as
husband and wife, no other
legal union that is treated
as marriage or substantial
equivalent thereof shall be
valid or recognized."
But now we are told that
as reported by the Miami
Herald news, "a 'counting
glitch' led to approximate-
ly 27,000 petitions from
Miami-Dade County be-
ing electronically counted
This leaves us with a
situation that needs to get
corrected very fast.
To correct it,

From the



is asking for 40,000 new-
signed petitions from reg-
istered voters who have not
yet signed one, to sign and
send it to them in Orlando
by Tuesday Jan. 29.
You can pick up these
petitions at many of our
churches or down load one
at "www.florida4marriage.
org" then share them, sign
them and mail them back
in, fast.
Lastly, we have the great
opportunity to go to the polls
and vote in the 2008 Presi-
dential Primary on Tuesday
Jan. 29. An informed voter
is the best voter. The media
will lead you to the person
they want to be president.
But we need to keep a man
in office who respects human
life, which will continue to
try to reverse Roe vs. Wade,
to give protection and the
right to live to all children,
protect our rights to bear
arms and that will protect
marriage as being between
one man and one woman.
So how can you know
how these candidates stand
on the issues that are tru-
ly important to you? You
can obtain a "Florida Fam-
ily Policy Council Voters
Guide" from most churches
and pastors in the area or go
to "www.flfamily.org" and
down load one.
As Jan. 29 approaches,
get informed and share with
others your findings, pray
and seek the Lord's direc-
tion that He may once again
forgive the sins of the nation
and bless America. For as
James 1:5 says, "If any of
you lacks wisdom, let him
ask of God, who gives to
all liberally and without re-
proach, and it will be given
to him" (NKJV).

Looking back at Perry's Prattle for 2007

All of us have probably
noticed that the first publi-
cation of a newspaper in the
new year invariably has a
wrap up of the top stories,
month by month, which oc-
curred throughout the past
year. Some may divide the
episodes by month in which
the event happened, thus
carrying the feature for more
than one issue.
The Washington County
News did a complete recap
of the most important hap-
penings in the county dur-
ing 2007 in the first paper
printed in 2008, that being
Jan. 2.
By contrast, the Panama
City News Herald divided
their selected top 2007 sto-
ries into a series of at least
three articles which ran in
consecutive issues of the
WJHG, channel 7 TV
in Panama City conducted
a survey allowing viewers
to select what they felt to
be the top ten stories of the
past year. The evening news
programs carried a seg-
ment of the chosen events
each day. They started in
the reverse order with the
number 10 story coming first
and continuing to the topic
which listeners chose as the
number one news event of
the year.
A few days ago, the "prat-
tler" began reflecting on this
approach to begin his new
year of writing "Perry's
Prattle." Without doing a
whole lot of actual review
of the 2007 writing, I have
given it some thought and
have come up with a list of
10 selected topics which I, as
the sole judge, have labeled
as my top ten writings for
the year.
I will not reveal the com-
plete list of subject matter
to the readers at this time. It
is my plan to start with the
story which I have listed
as number ten and carry,
forward for the next nine
weeks until I arrive at num-
ber one.
Two or more column top-
ics may be grouped together
in order to carry this out with
some degree of order.
As number 10 story for
the past year, I have come
up with the writings which I
have done on the home place
of my upbringing. Readers
know it was the only home
of our parents, Hugh Wells
and Marie Harris Wells,
who survived 62 years of
marriage there. Mama died
in 1993 and daddy remained
in the home until his passing
in 1999.
Starting out with 40 acres
of farm land when he and



Perry Wells

mamma married in 1925,
they gradually amassed a
total acreage of 240 acres
in timber and crop land. As
land prices began escalating
in this area in the mid-1950s,
our dad threatened to sell
the farm and start a new
career. He was convinced
that the $100 per acre prices
in 1956 were as high as land
would ever go in Washing-
ton County. The children
did not take him seriously
and did not fully believe that
he was entertaining any real
thoughts of disposing of the
Now we are all saying,
"thanks dad for not selling
the land and thanks for the
parcels that you and mama
left to each one of your off-
Each of the siblings own
an equitable portion of the
land. Our brother, Clyde,
and our sister, Minnie, both
deceased, have children
who are holding onto the
acreage left to them by their
I don't know just how
many articles were written
last year concerning that old
place. I know I did write of
visiting the property with my
Wells kin, Leroy and Judy
Wells from Navarre. Later,
a visit was made to the site
with kinsman, Ron Taylor,
from Red Level,Ala. Butler
County, Ala., is where my
grandfather, James Thomas
Wells, was born in 1873.
As the year ended, an
article told of sister Muriel's
daughter, Meredith, husband
Joe and three young children
now living in the old home
place which is part of Muri-
el's share of the homestead.
This living arrangement
is working out fine for the
young folk.

of the year 2007, had to do
with the old sayings, pronun-
ciations and word usage we
learned during our growing
up years.
Since the article ap-
peared, our sister, Gail, has
reminded me of an expres-
sion almost everyone used
in our circle of family and
friends. The term is "a right
smart" of anything, denot-
ing there was more than
the average expected. An
advertisement for a tract of
land with a description of "a
right smart of timber" told
the reader to look for a good
growth of trees should they
be interested.
Gail is our youngest sister
and she had to break away
from some of the instilled
colloquialisms upon her
marriage to a New Yorker.
The northerner did not know
that something "going to the
bad" in a refrigerator meant
it was spoiled and had to be
thrown out. At home, we
may have used "ruined" or
if it was cured ham or bacon
and didn't smell or taste just
right, it was "tainted."
My friend, Randall Rob-
erts, a Bonifay native now
living in Valparaiso, enjoyed
this particular column. He
called to tell me that he was
corrected many times by his
Nebraska-reared wife, Flor-
ence, especially when he told
her he was "stepping into the

bathroom to 'wrench' his
hands." Of course he knew
it should be 'rinse,' but he
had always heard it the other
way. Another variation of
that word is "ranching" the
Doris Sowell Strickland,
a Washington Countain now
residing in Port St. Joe,
is a faithful reader of the
"prattle." When I saw her
at the October reunion of
Oakie Ridge School, she
jokingly asked me if I had
"patternized" any business
lately. Of course she was
referring to the article list-
ing that pronunciation as
daddy's word for patronize.
In his last years, our dad
was always talking of "pat-
ternizing" the services of
Dr. Korvokian each time he
became sick.
Steven Hilburn, the
Michigan reader with Cot-
tondale family connections,
prompted the writing of the
article on home-made words.
He e-mailed the writer after
reading the column stating it
brought pleasant memories
to him as his grandfather
Braxton called him "sonny
boy" in his earlier years, as

however, going on a 25-
8 run to close to 35-29

The Chipley Lady Tigers

be a close game, as neither
team did much scoring early
on. Holmes County, in fact,

first of her four first-quarter

closer than 15-6 early in the
second quarter and Chipley

defense. The Lady Tigers
held a 34-10 lead at halftime

hard, taking a 15-10 first-

the results of a few nights
back when they lost a close

Holmes County JV Lady
Blue Devils (14-3) hung on
for the 34-28 win.
Graceville's Lady Tigers
took a 13-8 first-quarter lead,
and a narrow 18-16 half time
lead. Graceville could have
taken a bigger lead into the
locker room but they missed
five of six free throws in the
second quarter.
Holmes County played
strong defense and made
several steals, but the Lady
Devils were cold for most
of the third quarter. The
Lady Tigers held an 18-17
lead well into the quarter
before Jenna Belser and
Niesha Butler combined for
seven points to give Holmes
County a 24-18 lead going
into the fourth quarter.
The Lady Devils took
control of the defensive
boards early in the fourth
quarter, allowing Graceville
very few second shots. The

make it 24-19 Graceville go-
ing into the fourth quarter.
Chipley got as close as
27-25 early in the fourth

percent in December 2007, ac-
cording to theFlorida Agency

2.7 percent in December 2006.
Holmes County's rate ranked
52nd out of 67 counties.
In Washington County un-
employment increased from
3.9 percent in November2007
to 4.6 percent in December
2007. The unemployment rate
was;3.2 percent in December
2006. Washington County s'1

Bay County's unemploy-
ment rate in December edged
up to more than 4 percent.
The county's unemployment
rate rose to 4.6 percent in the
month, the same as Washing-
ton County, up 0.6 percent
from November and 1.3 per-
cent compared to December
The state's seasonally ad-
justed unemployment rate was
4.7 percent and the national

construction employment was
lower than the same month the
year before.

Managing Editor

efforts, however, have been for

Lot of Work

Jay Felsberg/Extra
The Holmes County Public Library recently named its main build-

ing in honor of Joe Clark.

he passed away, and he immedi-
ately began raising money for a
new library. Many years in the
insurance business and his own
outgoing nature made Clark an
ideal fund-raiser.
"I can't stand to sit still," Clark
said. "I have to do something;." "
The fact is, there barely WAS
a library.
"It was in the back room of
Bonifay City Hall," Clark said. The
first step was to get property for a
new building and raise the funds
to build. A location was available
on J. Harvey Ethridge Street in

Retired racing greyhounds will
be on hand "meet and greet" and
accompanying volunteers will
answer questions about adoption
of greyhounds as pets.
The need for both adoption and
foster homes for greyhounds is a
constant demand and has no "sea-
son", but it does have peaks.
The advent of tourist season
winding down later in the month
will result in an upturn of adopt-
able dogs.

Juvenile Justice Council
meeting on Feb. 12
The Washington County Juve-
nile Justice Council will not hold
a meeting this month.
The next meeting of the group
will be Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 3 p.m.
at the Washington County Com-
mission Room at 1331 South Blvd.
in Chipley.

"The site of old Holmes County
High School was vacant, and it
was owned by the Holmes County
School Board," Clark said. "They
finally let us have the property."
Next up was building a retention
pond. "Then we realized that we
had no parking, so Ann Leavins
and I went back to get more land
for that," Clark said. "To my ut-
ter amazement they just gave it
to us."
About $600,000 was raised
between private donations (many
donors are honored with plaques

on the bookcases), matches
from local government and state
grants. The County did the site
prep and inmates did much of
the labor.
The library book collection
soon outgrew the space, making
it necessary to get more room.
The portable building used as
a library during the building of
the new Poplar Springs school
was made available and is now
being used as the children's
Much of the funding came
from Dr. Sandra Wilcox of
Memphis, Tenn., and the build-
ing is named after her father,
A.L. "Jim" Dixon.
Clark praised Librarian Su-
san Harris and her staff for
"doing a wonderful job here."
In turn, Clark received some
praise himself.
"He is a first class man,"
said library staff member Betty
Tredwell. "I don't know what
we would do without him."

Baptist College of Florida Fall 2007:
_Dean's List announced to media

Mary D. Paramore WCN/HCTA
Anna Lee, Miss Tallahassee Outstanding Teen and fifth from left, sponsored a free soup kitchen Saturday, Jan. 19,
at the First Baptist Church in Bonifay. Thank goodness she already had the support of a few friends; the weather
morphed the event from a location-based meal to home delivery.

Lord's providence seen in

teen's service project

Staff Writer
With heavy rains and cold winds, Saturday,
Jan. 19, was a bad day to host a special event. Or .
was it?
That's the day Anna Lee selected to sponsor
a free soup kitchen at Bonifay's First Baptist
Church. She developed the plan as a service proj-
ect in support of her reign as Miss Tallahassee
Outstanding Teen.
Everyone involved concluded that Saturday
was also the day that the Lord decided to turn
Lee's project into true public service. Rather than
sit and lament a huge pot of vegetable soup that
was mostly uneaten because the weather reduced
the expected deluge of guests to a trickle, Lee
adapted to her circumstances.
With her parents in charge at the kitchen, Anna
and a few of her friends delivered insulated plas-
tic cups of hot soup and homemade dessert to the
area's elderly, sick and otherwise holed-up-at-
home residents.
Mike and Bill Lee estimate that the youth de-
livered more than 75 soup meals, while they fed
about 40 people at the church's education annex.
Both noted the support of Holmes County High
School Beta Club and Key Club members when
buying supplies for the event.
Anna Lee's platform for her reign as MissTal-
lahassee Outstanding Teen guided her to host the
free soup kitchen. Her platform is an acronym,
T.E.S.T.I.F.Y. to Love, which stands for Teaching
Everyone to love and Serve others, through Teen
Involvement Focusing on our fellowman, Yield-
ing rewards for a better world for everyone.

At right, top: Bill Lee supported his daughter's
service project by making the soup and helping
serve. He said, "It's a precision recipe right out
of Southern Living magazine. Me and Roger
Swindle made it with a little of this and a little
of that..."

At right, bottom: Anna Lee, right, and friends
made home deliveries as well as took mul-
tiple meals to fire, police and sheriff's office

Everyone sins! Romans
3:23 tells us this, "For all
have sinned, and come
short of the glory of God."
Sin is deceitful! Sin is con-
tagious; it grows and pro-
I believe we do not
purposely sin most of the
time. Sin is something that
sneaks up on us and we are
submerged in it before we
realize it. This, I believe,
is why Paul wrote about
keeping his body in sub-
jection, taking heed lest he
fall, and the importance of

a pure life. Paul understood
the way sin worked and the
importance of staying clear
of it.
We have many Bible ex-
amples of sin creeping into
people's lives. They did
not want or mean for this
to happen, but it did. They
were not as careful as they
should have been. I believe
there are good examples for
us to learn from.
Eve, in the garden, heard
the devil's lie, believed it,
and then did what he wanted
her to do- disobeying God!
Peter first "followed afar
off", and then was in the
presence of the enemy, and
finally denied the Lord.

Lot did not immediately
move to the evil place So-
dom. The prodigal son just
gradually went to the far
country, ending up in a pig
We need to learn to resist
every temptation. We can
not give in to any or we may
soon find ourselves sub-
merged in sin. James says,
"Therefore submit to God.
Resist the devil and he will
flee from you." (James 4:7)
Paul tells us in 1 Corinthi-
ans 10:13 that God will not
allow us to be tempted be-
yond what we are able. He
also says that there is a way
of escape so that we are able
to bear it.

Probably what would be
best for all of us to remem-
ber is what Paul wrote in 1
Thessalonians 5:22, "Ab-
stain from every form of
evil." If we each remem-
bered this, it would keep us
out of a lot of sin.

should induce us to correct our own

Guardsman becomes licensed practical nurse BBB offers

Eric Carnley was an av-
erage student in high school
'but not very motivated. He
-didn't have any idea what
he wanted to do with his
Shortly after graduat-
ing from high school, he
moved from Aiken, S.C., to
help care for his grandpar-
ents in Bonifay. He consid-
ered college but was unsure
about a degree plan so he
entered the National Guard
Reserve. He was called up
'almost immediately and
served 18 months in Iraq as
a Communication Technol-
.ogy Specialist.
During his active mili-
tary service, he was re-
quired to attend a four-day
Combat Life Saver course
that included basic life sup-
port and I.V. certification.
"I really enjoyed the
course and decided right
then that something in the
medical field was some-
thing I'd like to pursue," he
So, after returning from
Iraq, he decided to enroll in
Washington-Holmes Tech-
nical Center's Practical
Nursing Program.
"The WHTC LPN pro-
gram allowed me to work
my way through school,"
said Carnley. "After I fin-
ished some of the basics in
the program I was able to
get a job at a nursing home
as a certified nursing assis-
tant." Between work and
school, Carnley had very
little time left he would
often get off from his job at
the nursing home at 11 p.m.
and have to report to LPN
clinicals in Panama City by
6 a.m.
"I would often ask my-
self, 'why am I putting my-
self through this?'" stated
Carnley. "But now I know.
Nurses can go anywhere
they want to go. Where
ever life carries you, there
will be nursing jobs avail-

Eric Carnley, LPN, graduated WHTC's nursing pro-
gram Feb 15,2007. He is shown here with his instructor,
Shirley Morris.

Carnley graduated from
the WHTC's LPN program
Feb 15, 2007.
As soon as he passed
the state licensing exam for
nursing, he was promoted
to LPN at the nursing home.
He became keenly aware of
the huge demand for nurses
in various medical areas and
locations and he decided to
make a change.
He accepted a position
with Washington Correc-
tional Institute as a triage
and doctor's call nurse.
"I knew immediately that
this was a good fit for me.
The military and prison sys-
tem are very structured and
I like a regimented environ-
ment," said Carnley.
"I perform standard
nursing care the patients
have the same health prob-
lems but the environment in
which you are treating them
is quite different. As a tri-
age nurse, I serve during
sick call, checking patients
and administering over-
the-counter medication. I
also serve as the doctor's
call-out nurse doing pretty
much the same thing that
any nurse does before the
patient sees the 'doctor in a
doctor's office, checking vi-
tal signs and discussing the
patient's illness," he said.

When asked what he
would tell others consider-
ing nursing as a career, he
quickly fired off statistics
about the nursing field.
"By 2010, 65 percent of
all nurses will be over the
age of 50. There's a huge
demand for nurses and will
always be jobs available in
this career area." Carnley
added that nursing provides
endless possibilities be-
cause you can specialize in
so many medical areas.
Carnley is now working
full-time and continuing his
education to become a reg-
istered nurse.
"I believe attending an
LPN program first gives
you a step up on the other
students if you continue on
to a registered nursing pro-
gram.," he said. "I'm a bet-
ter nurse because the WHTC
instructors pushed me to do
the very best that I could
and that's critical because
patients and their families
are depending on you. The
program was mentally and
physically challenging but
well worth the blood, sweat
and tears. It gave me the
tools to find a good job and
the opportunity to obtain
the work skills needed to
