"Are you going to give
me bail?" was Baker's only
question for the judge, who
restated her $150,000 bond

will remain your bond."

Mercer, 25, the baby's

agreed to give her up, said
even less.

support to family caregivers, as-'
sist with light homemaking ser-
vices, respite and other daily
tasks necessary to maintaining
independence. SCP volunteers

Dorch said. "The waters
will continue to rise with
moderate flooding begin-

under a bed in Baker's
home. The discovery
came four days after Mer-
cer called 911 to report
the little girl missing.
Authorities now be-
lieve that call was a sort
of hoax, a strange set-up
that led dozens of paid law
enforcement, out-of-town
volunteers and search
dogs to explore thick

woods and overturn area
trash cans in a search for
clues that didn't exist.
Baker, in interviews
during the nearly week-
long search, blamed Mer-.
cer for mistreating Shan-
non and somehovw making
her vanish. Baker didn't
tell of her own past, which
includes the still-unsolved
case of her missing step-

son Paul Baker, who dis-
appeared in 1987.
In Shannon's case,
Baker and Mercer are
charged with giving false
information to law en-
forcement and interfering
with custody. Mercer also
faces charges for desert-
ing a child and misusing
911. Baker faces a felo-
ny count of aggravated

child abuse.
Assistant Public De-
fender Floyd Griffith rep-
resented both women
Monday. He likely will
stick with Mercer but file
for a conflict of interest in
the case, leaving Baker
to a different public de-
"I haven't made any
effort to discuss the case

with you" yet because of
the conflict with Mercer's
case, Griffith explained to
Register told Baker he
wants her to be able to-
speak to an attorney soon.
Griffith advised her not to
talk about her case with
anyone else until she does.
She has declined multiple
interview requests.

Authorities several
weeks ago moved Baker
to Bay County and left
Mercer in Chipley be-
cause there isn't room in

Bonifay sets as valorem aside for now

Managing Editor

BONIFAY The possi-
bility of the Bonifay City
Council looking at an ad
valorem tax has been set
aside, at least for the time
being. The announcement
was made by Mayor Eddie
Sims at Monday's regular
Council meeting. ,
Sims said discussion of
the tax was "indefinitely
postponed, if it would ever'
be brought up," based on
information received from
Tallahassee. City
Attorney Luke Taylor
contacted experts that in-
formed him that creating
an ad valorem tax was very
complicated, including fill-
ing out a large amount of

paperwork and having two
public hearings.
A large crowd was on
hand at Monday's meeting
expecting discussion of the
proposed tax, but there was
no discussion and no public
comment. The city does not
have an ad valorem tax.
However, the need for
additional revenue was
highlighted in a report by
auditor Hilton Galloway.
Galloway is preparing the
city financial report and
presented a preliminary re-
port Monday night.
The city has for sev-
eral years been making up
budget shortfalls in part
by shifting monies from
the proprietary fund, prin-
cipally earnings from sale
of utilities. The earnings,
however, have been declin-

ing for the last four years
that Galloway examined.
Earnings to the city's gen-
eral fund have also been de-
clining, but have been con-
trolled by transfers from
proprietary funds.
"All fund balances are
basically depleted," Gallo-
way said. He also expressed
concern whether the city
can continue to supply ser-
vices if costs rise.
There is also the pos-
sibility that the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion would not forgive the
loan the city was effectively
forced to take from FDOT
to fund moving utilities
because of the planned
widening of State Road 79.
The state has not collected
the $575,000 loan and has at
times in the past suggested

that the loan would be for-
given. So far nothing final
has been done.
"Fort the city to service
that debt you would need a
loan," Galloway said.

James F. Russ, Jr. and Minnie Lee Wells Russ, both graduates of Vernon High School, married Sept.

Remembering Vernon High

School courtships of days gone by

The report on the courtship, and
ultimate ffiarriage, of Hiram Owens
and Zena McKeithen Owens, Vernon'
High School graduates, was our
concluding lines last week.
This union proved to be a "until
death do us part" relationships.
Hiram operated the Owens Grocery
Store, founded by his parents,
Marvin Owens and wife, Vera Stott
Owens. Later the business became
Vernon Dixie Dandy with Zena being
involved in its operation.
Hiram's brother, Leon L. Owens,
dated his 1943 High School class
mate, Frances Miner, which resulted
in a marriage. Leon became a Free
Will Baptist Minister and also served
on the Washington County School
Board. Frances had a professional
career with the State of Florida
Division of Children Services.
In the Vernon High School
Class of '43, it was obvious that a
serious courtship was developing
between Heber J. Galloway and
Katie Forehand. Their marriage
took place Feb. 19, 1944. Heber J. I
was later called Tex Galloway due
to his interest and professional
participation in country and western
Bess Yates Harrell, a 1941
Vernon High School graduate, and
husband, Thomas Ray Harrell,
did some of their serious courting
while both attended Vernon School.
Being neighbors in the Pleasant Hill
Community of Washington County
made it easy for their interest in each
other to develop.
The story of their marriage on
August 1, 1942.is recorded in the 2006
Heritage of Washington County Book
and is a "must" to read.
After the graduation service in
April 1945, senior Mable McCullough
became the bride of J. T. Bush in a
pre-arranged ceremony performed
by Elder Carlton Todd on the stage of
the school auditorium.
Five years later at the 1950 Vernon
Commencement Service, graduating
senior, Myrtle Harrell and Josh J.
(Pat) Davis said theirmarriage vows
before Elder Todd prior to concluding
the service.
Drexel Brock, class of '45 married
Ollie Dorch, a '47 class member,
possibly in 1949.
Theron Cook, and Ouida
Justice, both'49 graduates became
husband and wife shortly after their

Kelly Brock and Marlene Waller
Brock graduated in the 1951 Vernon
High School class. Their affection
and courtship also blossomed into
Walton Wells and his sweetheart,
Carolyn Whitehead, were in that
same class. A quick kiss passed
exchanged in the hallway of Vernon
School, sparked the flame of love, that
developed into a later marriage.
Doris Gilbert and Veston Newsom,
both Vernon High graduates, married
July 14, 1956. They met when Doris's
father, Rev. James R. Gilbert, came
to Vernon as the Methodist Pastor in
.1937. Veston played the part of Joseph
and Doris portrayed Mary in the
church Christmas pageant that year.
poris had returned to Vernon as a
teacher and Veston had completed a
tour of duty in the U. S. Navy when a
courtship soon became a marriage.
Other marriages, among
graduates of Vernon High School,.
following World War II, that comes
to mind include Allee Whidden and
Louise Tiller, Arol Hudson and Carol
McFatter, William T. McFatter, Jr.
and Edna Jean Brock, Archie Cook
and Louise Miller, Thomas Knight
and Lessie Mae Swindle and Powell
Earnest Dalton and Paula Mae
Simmons. The grooms were all
veterans of military service and had
amassed enviable records during the
During an earlier era of Vernon
High School courtships and
marriage, Brown Hightower and
Fannie Lou Simmons Hightower may
well hold the record as "Dean" of this
group. Brown graduated in 1931 when
Fannie Lou was in grammar school.
The suitor, Hightower, always told
Fannie Lou that "your are the one
I want to marry." She graduated in
April 1939, turned 18 on August 4 and
married Brown Hightower on August
The next couple's experience
comes close to the above. Rex T.
Yates met his future wife, Audrey
Hightower, while he taught school at
Ebro. When a romance blossomed
between Rex and 15 year old Audrey,
her parents prevailed upon the
couple to wait until she was 16 before
marrying. This took place on April
9, 1938 and Audrey came to Vernon
School and graduated in 1939 as a
married woman. Although Rex was
never a Vernon student, he later
taught in the school prior to entering

the U. S. Army Air Corps during
World War II.
After experiencing extensive
World War II aerial combat service,
James E Russ, Jr. while a High,
School Teacher, met my sister, Minnie
Wells Russ, while she was a 1948
senior. They married September 12,
Wilson Roberts, Principal of
Vernon High School from 1956-1966,
took Clara Johnlis as his bride. She
was a student when they met. Clara
lives in Whigham, Georgia where
Roberts last served as principal.
Vernon student, W H. Miller,
returned home from the Korean War
with serious combat wounds about
the time former Vernon High School
student, Peggy Worthington's family
returned to Washington County from
Columbus, Georgia. Cupid's arrow
overtook this couple and they were
soon married.
Vernon High School student,
Kathleen Miller, sister to W. H. Miller,
was selected Miss Washington
County in 1950 and represented the
area in Dothan's annual Peanut
Festival. Later, she and classmate,
Bruce Simmons entered into a
* marriage springing from a high
school romance.
Surely my readers are filled
with suspense awaiting to learn of
the romantic pursuits of one Perry
Wells! My adventures were not
all that exciting but I will admit to
being "sweet" on Ruby Ann Jones
dating back to eighth grade. She
exceeded me in age by exactly one
year. I am using the excuse that she
intellectually outgrew me!
My apologies to any couples
overlooked, who met the criteria for
being included in this writing.
Congratulations to all those ,
long term, enduring marriage just
outlined. Maybe the early teachings
of both bride and groom of that
era, convinced them that the vows
were be regarded as serious and
permanent. "To have and to hold,
to love and to cherish, for better or
for worse, for richer or for poorer,
in sickness and in health, forsaking
all others, cleave only unto to him
(o? her) so long as you both shall
live" are commitments with strong
The marriage listed have survived

FWC declares bonefish a
saltwater game fish
TALLAHASSEE The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
voted on Thursday to elevate public
awareness of the importance of Florida
bonefish by declaring it a saltwater game
"Bonefish are one of the major rea-
sons Florida is 'The Fishing Capital of the
World,'" FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto
said. "We took this action today to empha-
size how important the bonefish fishery
is to, Florida anglers, visitors and South
Florida's recreational fishing industry."
It is illegal to commercially harvest and
sell bonefish in Florida, and sport anglers
are allowed to keep only one bonefish
18 inches in fork length per day.
To further protect bonefish populations
in Florida, the Commission also directed
staff to develop a draft rule for consider-
ation in February that would add all spe-
cies of bonefish found in Florida waters to
FWC rules, extend FWC bonefish regula-
tions into, federal waters, and require that
bonefish be landed in whole condition.
"Bonefish are one of the premier
sport fisheries in Florida and are known
as 'grey ghosts of the flats' because they
are stealthy, fast-swimming fighters that
are challenging to catch," Barreto said.
"That's why we recognize that conserving
Florida's bonefish resources will ensure
that anglers worldwide can continue to
enjoy fishing for this special species."

S ,the Commission unanimously endorsed

"We niust make the program easy for

licensed folks to accept these snakes,"
FWC Vice Chair Kathy Barco said. "It
needs to be as easy for them to take the
reptile of concern as it is for those with
the reptiles to walk in and turn it over."
Barreto further said he would craft
a letter to Secretary of the Interior Ken
Salazar on behalf of the Commission re-
questing additional funds to help continue
the state's effort to manage and control
nonnatives in Florida.
"The Burmese python has become the
poster child for a much bigger issue," said
Tim Breault, the FWC's director of Habi-
tat and Species Conservation. "Nonna-
tives are the real issue here, and it calls
for full engagement with federal leader-
During Breault's presentation, he
broke the issue of normative species regu-
lation and management into four major
components: international movement and
trade, captive breeding outside of native
range, risk assessment and eradication
or control. He suggested the Commission
reach out to federal partners.
"My biggest fear is what's going to be
the next Burmese python if we don't do
something now," Breault said.
Col. Jim Brown, director of the Division
of Law Enforcement, told the Commis-
sion that sales of reptiles have decreased
since 2008.
"Sales have gone down to a trickle be-
cause of the regulations the FWC and the
Florida legislature passed in 2008," Brown
said. "But it is still extremely important to
prevent further release of these nonna-
tive species into the wild." ,
Brown told the Commission a reptile
of concern technical assistance group
had been formed and will continue to
meet. The group supports the idea of
amnesty and supports further actions,
such as continuing the hunting program
on state-managed lands in South Florida.
The Commission directed Brown to draft
rules, with the assistance of the techni-
cal assistance group, to bring back to the
February meeting in Apalachicola.
"Eradication of reptiles of concern
from the wild is prohibitively costly and
ecologically impossible," Breault said.
"But unrelenting control is feasible."
Barreto directed staff to continue work
with the reptile industry, zoos and all part-
ners. "Do whatever it takes to control this
problem," he said.
Anyone who holds a reptile of concern
license will be eligible to be an amnesty
facility once the executive order is issued,
in approximately two or three weeks.,

community, the Anchorage Chil-

dren's Home "aspires to develop
healthy children and families within
the Christian values of hope, caring,

. tegrity, leadership, humility and self-
Community South President and
CEO Jan Page said, "We embraced
the children from Anchorage Chil-
dren's Home because not only have
they been removed from their respec-
tive family settings, but they also now
face the prospect of no Christmas. It
was important to us that they have a
chance to enjoy a normal Christmas,
and we were glad once again to be
able to help in this effort."

A young
and successful
executive was -
traveling down

too fast in his new
Jaguar. He was '.
Watching for kids WES
'darting out from Leti
between parked Ligh
cars and slowed
down when he thought
he saw something. No
children appeared, but
instead a brick smashed
into the Jag's side door!
He slammed on the
brakes and spun the
Jag back to the spot
where the brick had been
thrown. He jumped out of
the car, grabbed the brick
throwing kid and pushed
him up against parked
car shouting, "What was
that all about and who
are you? Just what the
heck are you doing?".,
Building up a head
of steam he went on.
"That's a new car and
that brick you threw
is going to cost a lot of
money. Why did you do.
"Please mister, please
I'm sorry, I didn't know
what else to do," pleaded
the youngster. "I threw
the brick because.no one
else would stop..."
Tears were dripping
down the boy's chin as
he pointed around the
parked car. "It's my
brother," he said. "He
rolled off the curb and fell
out of his wheelchair and
I can't lift him up."
Sobbing, the boy
asked the executive,

The Greatest Gift

Each year we celebrate the birth of a helpless child:
Jesus the Lord, the King of kings, the Messiah, the
only Son of God. However, the significance of this
special gift, given to us by our Heavenly Father,
' often becomes secondary to all the other things
that the Christmas season has to offer. During
this time of year, we are also thinking about all
of the gifts-that we may receive and all those we
have to purchase for.our loved ones and friends.
Surely, decorating our homes, buying gifts, and
all of the holiday preparations can become quite
hectic; nevertheless, most everyone enjoys doing
these things for this special holiday. Also, because
ofChristmas, most places of worship have special
events scheduled during this time of year that we
should try to attend and take part in. God wants
us to enjoy all of the wonderful things during this
blessed time, and to be mindful of the great love
that He has for us. His love is uniquely exemplified
by giving us eternal salvation in a helpless Child,
lying in a manger, wrapped in swaddling cloths.

Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace,
goodwill toward men.
New KJ.V. Luke 2:14

Exploring pet's personality and character traits: Canine aggression

Each and every puppy is born
with its own unique personality,
just like humans. Some are outgo-
ing, some are shy, some will love
you unconditionally, and some are
angry and aggressive. Canine ag-
gression does not necessarily come
from an abusive past, but is usually
a part of the animal's personality.
Animal aggression is a big issue for
families who have small children
in the home, since an aggressive
pet can be especially dangerous
to children. There are several dif-
ferent types of aggression of which
pet owners should be aware.
Dog aggression in the United
States is hardto determine because
a majority of the incidents go unre-
ported. It has been estimated that

numerous dog bites occur monthly.
Aggression is the most frequent
reason that dogs are relinquished
to shelters and that owners seek
advice from veterinarians
"Canine aggression can be cat-
alogued in different forms," said Dr.
MA. Crist, clinical assistant profes-
sor at the Texas A&M College of
Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences. "Aggression might be
fear related, and focused at a group
of unfamiliar people including dogs,
children, veterinarians, or certain
events. Conflict aggression is used
to describe conflict that a dog expe-
riences that will result in aggres-
sion. For example, if a dog is lying
on a sofa and the owner tries to get
'the dog off the sofa, a conflict may

arise. The comfortable spot is a
resource the dog is protecting and
responding to the owner's demand
is the conflict. The owner becomes
more confrontational and the dog
may become more threatened and
resort to aggression to resolve the
conflict. Territorial aggression can
elicit aggressive behavior, this may
be seen where the dog has terri-
torial boundaries such as fences,
doors, cars and yards. Pain related
aggression can be shown with the
anticipation of pain or a painful in-
sult. This can be an act of guarding
a painful limb or self preservation
and can be secondary to anxiety.
Maternal aggression is protect-
ing offspring against threatening
incidents. Predatory aggression is

associated with the act of chasing,
capturing, killing and sometimes
consuming the kill."
Some signs of fear related ag-
gression can include certain pos-
tures such as ears pulled back,
tucked tail, active retreat, and
raised hair on the back of neck or
dorsum. These may occur before,
during or after the event that trig-
gers the aggression. A predatory
aggression chase is targeted to-
ward squirrels, cats and fast mov-
ing objects like bicycles, joggers
and sometimes cars. Status related
aggression may result in aggres-
sion over resources. -
The first step in training is to
provide safety from the aggressive
pet by separating it from the indi-

viduals. The correct uses of leashes
and head collars, under the direc-
tion of a boarded veterinary animal
behaviorist, are used to create a
safer situation. Try to keep the pet
away from its aggression triggers,
or block visual access of them.
"Behavioral modification is not
* a simple obedience task," Crist
said. "It is attempting to change
an unwanted behavior with calm
verbal commands. The idea is to
change the pet-owner relationship
to have a command-response rela-
