Bonifay 1720 S Waukesha Street (850) 547-2260 Chipley 1044 Hwy. 90 East (850) 638-8376 By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Its almost like an episode from Ripleys Be lieve It or Not: No longer are Floridians more likely to die as the result of an auto crash than drug use. Today, more in the state are losing their lives in the wake of an exploding metham phetamine epidemic. According to law enforcement reports, there are some jurisdictions where meth cooking and/or addiction are growing 28 percent or more annually. And though Washington County Sheriff Bob by Haddock isnt seeing that extreme growth, he did say in an interview late last week that meth processing and use are growing and are a growing problem here. The trouble is the high you get the rst time you try meth is the highest high you will ever get, Haddock said. And over time, he said, meth destroys the brains dopamine receptors, meaning the only small sense of comfort and happiness an addict gets is when under the in uence of the drug. People get desperate to have it, the sher iff said. That is why you see people robbing stores or anywhere they can get cash without even bothering to use a mask. For years, parents have been warning teens that the addictive properties of meth are such that they cant even experiment once, and a new national advertising campaign aimed at teams is nding at least limited success in re tarding rst-time use. What makes meth so dangerous? There are a variety of reasons, Haddock said. First, the nature of the high received is ex tremely addictive, and the damage to the physi ology of the brain also is extreme. Second, Had dock said, a person under the inuence of meth is energized for a number of hours, even days before crashing. The shear fatigue involved Meth use a growing problem BOCC: No more free dirt By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY No more free dirt, the com mission has ruled.

Arrested were Timothy James Braddy, 23, Chipley; Christopher Ryan Bass, 21, Chipley; Justin Ed ward Brown, 23, Caryville; Christon Faith Patrick, 22, Chipley; and Tina Monique Hill, 25, Chipley. According to the report, a Wash ington County Sheriffs Ofce depu ty, acting off a tip, arrived at the res idence in Chipley during the early morning hours and, after WCDTF investigators arrived for assistance, was given consent by the property owner to search the residence. Investigators found the ve sus pects inside the residence in the process of cooking meth. They also found methamphetamines, drug paraphernalia and a shake and bake bottle actively producing methamphetamines. Because of the volatile nature of the meth lab, the house was imme diately cleared, and ofcers trained in methamphetamine lab disman tling were able to safely contain and remove the lab. Also found were several bottles of what is commonly referred to as bi-layered liquid, which was dened in the report as the product you have after the initial cooking process C H R IS TO PHE R RYAN BASS TIMOTHY BRADDY JUSTIN BROWN TINA HILL CHRISTON P A TRICK Just-released inmate dead in Bay County From Staff Reports A registered sex offender was found dead in a wooded area off Tram Road in Panama City on Monday afternoon.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 28, 2011 more dirt away, not even mud dirt, that whatever dirt is acquired by the county be taken back to the pit for county reuse, even ditch dirt, Abbott said. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said this was an excellent idea from a legal standpoint. The county would be less likely to face legal is sues if we just did away with giving away free dirt, he said. The board approved of the recommendation four to one, with Commissioner Charles Brock voting no. Brock said his only is sue was the expense of now having to haul the dirt back to the pits, wasting gas and putting unneces sary strain on the countys work equipment. Other business Goodman presented the board with an update of the new Sunny Hills Mu nicipal Services Benets Unit (MSBU) ordinance the board had requested of him. Goodman requested that the board reconsider their original proposal of allowing new members Sal Zurica and Chuck Ward to appoint two more members each. Instead, Goodman suggested that Zurica and Ward choose ve members and the board choose two from each. Commissioner Hulan Carter, who originally pro posed and motioned for Zurica and Ward to appoint two new members each, nullied his vote and after board approval motioned to follow Goodmans advice, which was approved by the board. Weve organized an or dinance that if they cant work together that we as a board can move on without them, Goodman said. Hopefully well have names by the November meeting, and well have a nal ordinance by then, too. The board approved of County Manager Steve Joyners request to pay the $35,000 deductible to their insurance company to continue negotiations in regards to an inmate who needed $210,000 in medical expenses. Goodman said even when the inmate was re leased, any medical ex penses stemming back to this case would be covered under the countys insur ance policy. Commissioner Charles Brock said he would like to see the Vernon Can ning Center back up and running. The board approved of Commissioner Abbotts of cial resignation as a mem ber of the Tri-County Com munity Board and his rec ommendation that Brock ll in his position to ensure the steady progress of the Vernon Canning Center. Carter requested that any work done by the coun ty engineer must be rst approved by Joyner; that all overtime must be ap proved by Joyner, with the exception of emergency overtime; and that county crew chief David Corbins crew go from four day work weeks to ve day work weeks. All of Carters re quests were approved. The board approved of Goodmans request to approve the resolution to pave the rest of Clayton Road and enter into an agreement with the Florida Department of Transpor tation, which requires no matching funds. The board agreed to look into Commissioner Donnie Stricklands re quest for the county attor ney to look into bumping up the requirements for mandatory inventory items to start at $500 in value in stead of $100. Commissioner Joel Pate said the septic tank is sue isnt over with yet and that it will be coming up in a meeting in November in Destin. I encourage everyone whos against it to call, send letters and emails and let legislation know how much theyre against it, Pate said. Ill be keeping everyone updated as much as possible on the matter. Also approved Request approval for clerk of court to pay vouch ers for August 2011 totaling $2,010,852.91.

After last weeks article appeared, Paula Simmons Dalton, a native Vernon daughter, called to expound further on the gopher story, explaining who the Pensacola Gopher Buyer was. Paula did not seem upset that my prattle column was headlined with a possum reference, not gophers, and the caption under the picture mentioned a buyer coming to Chipley for a load of gophers, not Vernon. Paula stated the gopher buyer referred to in last weeks prattle, J. Q. Powell owner of City Curb Market in Pensacola, is a brother to Ida V. Powell Dalton, who married Dr. B. W. Dalton, and are the parents of her husband, Powell Ernest Dalton. The colorful and well respected Vernon medical doctor, Dr. B. W. Dalton, and his bride, married on Nov. 27, 1910 in Campbellton, Florida, where he operated a drug store and a medical practice, including surgery. Dr. Dalton moved to Bonifay in 1913 and was associated with Dr.L. H. Paul of Bonifay, where both served as physicians for many years with the Brown-Florida Lumber Company of Caryville. He later moved to Vernon, by way of Hinson Cross Roads. In Vernon, he practiced medicine, operated a drug store, was a Justice of the Peace performing marriages, and served as Postmaster. His last medical practice was in Chipley where he and his wife made their home. Paulas call immediately brought to mind that her husband was named Powell Ernest Dalton in honor of his mothers maiden name. Paula and Ernest grew up in Vernon and married July 16, 1944 at Vernon Methodist Church, with ceremony performed by Rev. J. W. Marley. On the topic of gophers, Paula and I agreed that the market for them was for real and that many locals relied upon them for meat. Upon noting that her husbands uncle, J. Q. Powell, was paying two and one-half cents per pound, and the desired weight was a twelve pound gopher, the two of us concluded that our neighbor of yesteryear, who captured the animals as a livelihood, had chosen a good source of employment. If he only caught four full weight gophers per day, the going rate would bring him a total of $1.20, possibly more than he would have made at the local sawmill. Paula, who was born in Red Head, has called Vernon home almost all of her life. She graduated from Vernon High School in 1943, during the critical times of World War II. Her parents were Paul Farris Simmons and Anna Mae Jackson Simmons. She was the only girl born into the family of ve boys. The boys were Ranvil, Mack, Jack, Bruce and Jimmy (Skeet) Simmons. Powell Ernest (Ernie) Dalton was the only boy in his family and had three sisters, Helen, Mary Ester and Minnie Francis. Born to Ernest and Paula were Rhonda Ellen, Virginia Ann, Patsy Gayle and Paul Evan Dalton. All of their children have maintained close ties to Vernon. Paula continues to live on the banks of beautiful Holmes Creek where shing has been her main pastime throughout her life. She can also name many of the historic activities which happened in her back yard in earlier time. The docking of the steam ships, which plied the waters of Holmes Creek, happened in a stones throw of her present boat landing facility. Recently this lady mentioned the popular shingle mill which operated in her early life, and located on the creek bank. The mill was owned by a Mr. and Mrs.Tucker, whose daughter, Ethel, married Homer Polk. The Polks came to Vernon, lived near the Tucker home, and was involved in shingle production. Their two beautiful girls, Ladare and Edna Earl Polk, grew to adulthood and completed Vernon High School in 1946. Other industry along the Holmes Creek Bank included a saw mill and grist mill operation by Mr. Big Six Williams, a second shingle mill owned by a Mr. Yohn, a cigar factory, just yards inland from the creek which later became a residence. In later years, a spool mill, which produced spools for shipping electric wiring, became an important source of employment. Paula Dalton is a walking pillar of information on Vernon history. She is a charter member, and has demonstrated a keen interest in the Vernon Historical Society and Museum. She continues to be a major contributor to the interesting array of antiques, writings, books and other cherished relics of the past, which ow almost weekly into the facility. She donated the examination table, complete with accessories of the time, used in the medical ofce of Dr. Dalton The original letter inquiring of the availability of gophers from the Pensacola business man, is on permanent display in the museum. She is responsible for many other interesting items now in the facility. The Vernon Museum is open each Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and is located in the old Vernon High School building. Paula Dalton is one of the original founders of the Vernon High School Alumni Club which meets the rst Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. for lunch at Simbos. This informal Dutch treat meal gathering is open to all who are interested in attending. This lady keeps up with all the happenings in Vernon and can be relied upon to spread the word on illnesses or deaths occurring in the town. The prattler is indebted to her for assistance in preparing todays writing and for her encouragement in many previous articles of the past. See you all next week.SP E C I A L TO T HE N EWSPaula Dalton and Ernie Dalton pictured as they celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Gopher story gets explanation PERRYS PRA TTLE Perry Wells Dear Editor, Fall is just beginning and with it comes the best time of year to camp. Three Rivers State Park is a beautiful place to come out and enjoy a hiking trail or a good day fishing. The wildlife at Three Rivers has been very active, so bring a camera. The park drive is resurfaced to make your visit more comfortable as you search for the white-tailed deer and fox squirrels that are commonly seen along the park drive. Our recently completed prescribed burn allows you to see the flora and fauna of the area and provides an interesting contrast to the brightly colored plants bursting forth. Three Rivers has thirty campsites in the campground and one cabin built right on the edge of Lake Seminole. Campsites with water, electricity and fire rings are $16 a night. The cabin sleeps four, and includes one bedroom, a loft, bathroom, dining room, kitchenette, fireplace and screened porch. It is rented for $65 a night. In addition to family camping, the park also has a youth/group camping area. This semi-primitive camping area is divided into two camping areas with a bathhouse in the center. The park can set up a service project for youth organizations, such as litter clean up, planting native species or construction projects. Whether at the campground or while visiting the day use area, visitors have many activities to choose from at the park. For a nice relaxing day, pack a picnic and enjoy lunch under a covered pavilion overlooking Lake Seminole, and then let the kids play on the playground. For a great day outside, bring a fishing pole or take a leisurely walk on a nature trail. Want to get some fresh air and exercise? Bring your bike and ride through the park or rent a canoe and paddle around the lake. The park also offers pavilion space to rent for family gatherings, reunions, birthdays, weddings and other events. Three Rivers State Park is a great family spot for recreation and relaxation! Keep an eye on the website for dates and times of our yearly Christmas light show in December. If you have any questions about Three Rivers State Park, I would be glad to assist. Please feel free to call or email me. If you have any general questions about camping in state parks or the Florida state park system, please reach out to Florida Park Service Information Director Jessica Sims at (850) 245-3029 or via email at jessica. k.sims@dep.state.fl.us.

Local A6 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Accidents happen, and pets can get burned for one reason or another just like their owners can. When this happens, it is best to have a hands-off policy and leave the treatments to the professionals. The best thing an owner can do in the case of a burn is get the animal to a veterinarian as soon as possible; burns are considered to be emergencies in just about all situations, and the sooner they are brought in, the better, says Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer specializing in dermatology, at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Sometimes pet owners will not notice the burned area for days or even weeks after the burn has occurred. One thing to keep in mind with burns is that sometimes what is seen initially is only the tip of the iceberg. What may look like only a red spot of skin on a pets side following a burn incident can quickly become devitalized, dead tissue, which is not only painful but also more at risk for infections over the next couple of days, explains Diesel. Infection in the animal is a big concern when dealing with burns, especially if the burn goes deeper into the lower layers of the skin. If the skin barrier is not intact and normal, bacteria can quickly enter the wound causing not only local infection but also potentially it can get into the blood stream. This puts the animal at risk for serious illness and potentially death, says Diesel. Diesel explains that very serious burns require hospitalization and care for several days to weeks at a time to monitor and control for any side effects of the burn. Cars are often one of the causes for accidents resulting in pet burns. On a hot day, the shade underneath a car or truck might seem very appealing to an animal outside. Even on a cold day, the heat of a car engine can be comforting for a kitty out in the cold. If the animal comes in contact with a hot mufer or catalytic converter even for a split second, a serious burn can occur. There are many other scenarios as well that could be the cause of pet burns, such as: barbeque grills, space heaters, spilling hot liquids or food when cooking, objects laying in the yard that conduct heat such as hoses or tools, or puppies or cats chewing on plugged in electrical cords. Different types of burns require a bit different treatments, explains Diesel, Chemical burns for example, might become much worse when water is applied to them, so the nature of the burn helps the veterinarian know how best to treat it. Sometimes owners do not witness the animal getting burned, so it is important to be able to try and distinguish if a mark that is found on a pet is actually a burn. Burns have a variable appearance based on the extent and severity on an animal, says Diesel, Initially, it may start as the skin itself just looks a little red or inamed, while more severe burns can cause burning or singeing of the coat. Diesel explains that the pets hair may become dry, brittle, curled, or even lost completely. Severe burns may show up as large areas of exposed deeper skin; this would look like a scraped knee for example, which could be moist, oozing, and often very painful, says Diesel. Even what looks like only a mild burn can become much worse over time. This is particularly true for thermal burns, which may be caused by heat lamps, water blankets, or even hot water from a garden hose that was used for bathing. The skin may look red initially, but then may turn black, crusty, and become quite painful with these burns, says Diesel. Diesel, For example, if the owner trips over a dog or cat and ends up spilling a hot casserole on the pet, or spills candle wax on the pet, then removing the hot material would be good in that case. This is the extent to which an owner should try to help a pet with a burn. A veterinarian will be best able to provide and recommend pain control given the pets other medical conditions and extent of injuries. Owners can sometimes unintentionally burn a pet when drying them off with a hairdryer after a bath. Hair dryers can be helpful for drying off a pet, however owners need to be careful so as the hair dryer does not get too hot. If the owner wants to use a hair dryer, it should be done on a cool setting ONLY, says Diesel. Less harmful ways of drying off a pet would include thorough towel drying or allowing the animal to dry outside in the sun when the weather is not too warm. Sometimes more serious situations can occur such as house or barn res. In this case, the owner should closely monitor the pet not only for burns but also for signs of smoke inhalation. Smoke inhalation can be a big problem for dogs and cats, especially if that animal already has any sort of respiratory condition such as asthma, says Diesel. Signs of smoke inhalation can include coughing, sneezing, or even turning blue, gasping for air, or losing consciousness. Smoke inhalation is often treated with oxygen and possibly uid supportive care, says Diesel, Radiographs (xrays) of the chest may also be helpful to evaluate the lungs. When it comes to pet burns, time becomes crucial. The best thing an owner can do for their pet is to get them to a veterinarian as soon as possible to be evaluated and monitored. This is the best way to ensure getting uffy friends back to their playful and loving selves!

Its not clear if the inmate was the victim of a violent attack or if his injuries were sustained in an accident; Plessinger said only that the Inspector Generals Ofce is investigating the incident. There is scant information about violence in Florida prisons. In scal year 2009-10, the most recent statistics available, the Inspector Generals Ofce reported 6,806 violent crimes against inmates and 3,269 in mate injuries or deaths statewide. Inmate injuries or deaths include suicides and attempted suicides, accidental injuries or deaths, natural deaths and homicides. During the same period, 34 knives or other sharp instruments were conscated, either inside state prisons or as they were being smuggled inside. There were 102,232 inmates in the prison system as of June 30, 2010, according to DOC reports. More than 60 percent were convicted of drug, robbery, burglary, homicide or personal violence-related crimes. INJURED from page A1 was given an ankle monitor to wear and released, ofcials said. A probation ofcer went to verify Meltons location about 1:30 p.m. and found him in the woods and unresponsive. The ofcer called for help. EMS responded and pronounced Melton dead at the scene, ofcials wrote. Sheriff Frank McKeithen said on scene that foul play was not suspected. Meltons body was turned over to the medical examiner to determine the cause of death. According to Floridas Department of Cor rections, Melton was sentenced to 8 years and 5 months in prison in 2003 for lewd and lascivious molestation on someone more than 12 years old.

Local A8 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 28, 2011 By Pat Kelly Florida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY BEACH The second annual Fall Fishing Challenge between the city and county piers begins this weekend, and City Council members, representing the citys Russell-Fields Pier, already have thrown down the gauntlet to the Bay County Commission. City Councilman John Reichard vowed Thursday the catch from the city pier by local and area anglers would again outweigh anything taken from the county pier. He also issued a challenge to the county downtown wussies, a term usually reserved for unmanly men and which he targeted at commissioners holed up in their large Panama City administrative building. Councilman Rick Russell also joined in. I dont think they even know what a fresh fish tastes like, Russell said of county commissioners. He said he might have to tie up some fish around the countys pier to make it easier on county commissioners. County Commissioner Mike Thomas gave back just as good as he got on Friday, saying the Beach Council was all talk and no pole. Rick and that bunch up there dont even know how to fish, Thomas said with a chuckle, defending the fishing off the countys M.B. Miller Pier. He said Russell baited his hook by squashing a tomato on the sidewalk. Bill Dozier (commission chairman) and I will meet Reichard and Russell at any time, them from the city pier and us from the countys, Thomas said. Well wear them out. The fishing contest, which began Friday and continues each weekend through Nov. 23, drew hundreds of fishermen from around the area last year who logged in roughly 1,000 pounds of fish. Prizes of $150 are given out each weekend for the largest king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, flounder and pompano from each pier, and a $250 prize is awarded for the heaviest catch of the entire challenge. A rod and reel is given in the 12-and-under category each weekend for the largest fish of any kind. All kidding aside, Thomas, who spearheads the contest along with Russell, called the event a great boost for the area, saying, the fishing competitors from each pier enjoy the competition more than we do. He said the challenge not only spotlights the great fishing in Bay County, but also highlights the twin 1,500foot piers, two of the longest on the Gulf Coast. For $2, even nonanglers can walk out along the piers and have one of the best views of the Gulf and beachfront, he said. The twin piers themselves also have been a point of friendly joshing between city and county officials since they were completed in 2009 and 2010 by the same contractor, with the city pier opening first. Thomas insisted Friday the county pier was able to correct any shortcomings from the design of the city pier, while city officials insist they had a secret deal to leave the citys structure a quarter-inch longer. Everyone knows everything is shorter in the unincorporated areas, anyway, Reichard said Friday. 306 West Brock Avenue Bonifay, FL (850) 547-9289 Rapid Recovery Program for In-Patient or Out-Patient Rehab Come Take A Virtual Tour www.bonifayrehab.com n Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy with vital stem available daily n Outpatient Rehabilitation n Stroke Recovery n Cardiac Recovery n Respite Care n Restorative Care Services n Infusion Therapy Services n Advanced Wound Care Services with Specialized Physician on Staff to Oversee Wound Care Therapy n Terminal Care n Respiratory Therapy Services n Pharmaceutical Services n Dietary Services n Patient & Family Educational Services n Pastoral Care Services n Social Services B ONIFAY N URS IN G & REH AB CE N TER 105 Main Street, Chipley, FL 10% OFF Fall Special color, cut, mani/pedi, facial or massage WALK-INS WELCOME CALL TODAY (850) 638-4416 Ask About Extensions, Feather Extensions, Feather Locks or Brazilian Blowout!

One of the things that museums do is to present a topic and put all the information out there so the public can draw their own conclusion, executive director for the Science and Discovery Center Tish Sheesley said. This exhibit will looks at ways the family, as a unit, can live a healthier lifestyle. The hands-on, interactive exhibit features a balancing act, a literal version to showcase the psychological balancing act adults and children experience every day, along with other physical activities. On Oct. 1, the Eat Well, Play Well exhibit will open with a Twist themed kickoff event. There will be everything from the game Twister, then a twist dance competition, Sheesley said. There will also be outdoor activities, a karate group and a cooking demonstration. It is all to get parents and children to see how they could make small changes that help their overall well-being. This exhibit comes to Panama City at a good time as first lady Michelle Obama focuses on her Lets Move initiative to help combat childhood obesity. I am thrilled the first lady is fighting childhood obesity and the Eat Well, Play Well exhibit hits right on that topic, Sheesley said. I think the difference is learning nutrition and fitness information as a family opens up the conversation so parents and children can talk about it.

What you saw was a Florida fox squirrel, and biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission are asking you to go online and record your sighting of this creature, which is twice the size of an ordi nary squirrel. Fox squir rels often have distinctive, masked faces with a black head and white nose and ears, but there are wide variations in coloration, from tan to gray or black. You can use the FWCs Google map application at https://public.myfwc. com/hsc/foxsquirrel/Get LatLong.aspx to enter the location where you spot ted the fox squirrel. Your squirrel sighting will be logged automatically and assigned a specic latitude and longitude. The fox squirrel survey is a wonderful opportunity for children and adults to become amateur natural ists and get involved in con serving Floridas wildlife, said FWC wildlife biologist Courtney Hooker. We will learn more about where the Florida fox squirrels are by asking the public to go online and report their sightings of fox squirrels. The fox squirrel survey is part of a research proj ect by the FWC and the University of Florida De partment of Wildlife Ecol ogy and Conservation. It combines the latest in on line-mapping technology with the publics enthusi asm about sharing their wildlife observations. The fox squirrel survey began in August, and data will be collected through at least January 2012. So far, about 600 sightings of fox squirrels have been logged online. Fox squirrels have been observed in open woods, pine and cypress stands and mangrove swamps, but knowledge about their distribution is limited. Fox squirrels spend more time on the ground than in trees and often escape their en emies by running rather than climbing. Their favor ite food is pine seed.

One big reason for the danger is production of the drug. Dangerous, poisonous chemicals are in use. In a shake and bake operation, these chemi cals often are loaded into a plastic soft drink bottle and shaken, the chemical reaction creating ex tremes of both heat and pressure that can lead to classic burns, explosions and chemical burns. And more and more frequently, manufacturers are even using their vehicles as mobile labs, an unbelievably dangerous practice. Meth addicts are also extremely dangerous for law enforcement, Haddock said, because the drugs effects create extreme paranoia in users. Haddock describes meth as a poor mans drug because it is relatively inexpensive to produce. When we make a cocaine or pill bust, we fre quently nd thousands of dollars in cash the site, he said. Never with meth. Most often a meth producer will simply make enough for personal use and that of enough com panions to spread the cost. Haddock is reluctant to describe law enforce ments strategies for ghting the growing epidemic, but is quick to point out that budget cuts at national, state and local levels are reducing the tools at his disposal. One example? The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency once paid for the safe dismantling of meth labs and disposal of hazardous materials. No more. Today, that is a cost borne by Washington County, itself suffering through an expected budget reduction of nearly 21 percent in the fiscal year starting Oct. 1. And Had dock said he has had to sideline at least one inves tigator to do background checks of department ap plicants to replace those leaving for better pay or benefits than Washington County can offer. and before you have your nished meth product.

OUTD OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Hooked on Outdoors I was over in Hogtown Bayou on Saturday speck shing when I looked up and a teal came by at about 100 mph. Was it a blue wing or a green wing teal? Im sure some people can tell the difference, but I was lucky to even see it as it was moving so fast. I dont know what bird holds the all-time speed record, but the teal is no slouch when it comes to speed. Seeing this bird reminded me it was almost time for the early duck season Florida has had since 1981, when the FWC persuaded the federal government to open a special experimental duck season on wood ducks. The argument was that the wood ducks we were encountering in Florida were separate from most of the wood ducks that migrated down here later in the winter. The feds at rst balked at the idea of a season this early, but the FWC put in many man hours to prove we had a crop of ducks that never left this area. So in 1981 the feds approved a season, and it has been in force ever since. Beginning Sept. 24-28 you are allowed to take four ducks; a mixture of wood ducks or teal. You can take four teal or two teal and two wood ducks, for four birds a day per person. You might think it is too hot to duck hunt, but we have a dedicated bunch of duck hunters in this area who dont seem to let that bother them. They had better be sharp on the lookout, however, because no other birds can be shot this time of year. Of course, this early in the year we dont have the mix of ducks we will have during the winter months. Both of these birds are easily recognized by their size and sound. The sound of a wood duck is unmistakable when it is coming in to a roost or circling an area it intends to feed during the day. Break out the waders, boys duck season is just around the corner.

This pileated was photographed at a Bay County residence. Does the ivory-bill still exist? By Stan Kirkland Special to Florida Freedom In spring 2005, news swept the United States and much of the world that the ivory-billed woodpecker, long thought to be extinct, had been found in the Cache River National Wildlife Refuge in Arkansas. The news was electrifying to birders and conservation groups. Gene Sparling, an amateur ornithologist from Hot Springs, Ark., reported seeing a single adult male ivory-bill in the Cache River refuge on Feb. 11, 2004. Other ornithologists soon joined the search for proof that ivory-bills still existed, and they seemed to make their case when David Luneau of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock made a short, blurry videotape of a reported ivory-bill taking ight from a tree. Some of the groups that reviewed the evidence and supported the claim that the woodpecker, with its 3foot wingspan and signature whitish-ivory bill, still existed included the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, National Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Some wanted to believe that the gigantic woodpecker, known by such names as white-back, pearly bill and Lord God bird, still ew safely somewhere. The name Lord God bird came from people seeing the bird and exclaiming, Lord God, what a bird. Had the short video clip been clear, that would have been one thing. Ornithologists across the country weighed in, and many believed the searchers had spotted the smaller pileated woodpecker, which is common across the Southeast. To understand the discussion as to whether ivory-bills still existed, you have to understand something of the bird itself and the history of our country. Adult ivory-bills measured 19 to 21 inches, were bluish-black in color and had white markings on the neck, sides and back, which resembled a white saddle. Both male and female birds sported a prominent top crest, which was red in males and black in females. Early settlers and frontiersmen reported that male Native Americans, particularly chieftains, often wore the bills of ivory-billed woodpeckers on their belts or as part of breast plates. The author of In Search of the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker, Jerome A. Jackson, points to the archaeological record where the heads and bills of both ivorybilled and pileated woodpeckers were much in demand by Native Americans, sometimes far outside their range. He mentions the recent discovery of a Native American burial in Colorado with ivory-bills with the deceased, more than 1,000 miles from recognized ivory-bill habitat. Jackson and other authors accurately point to the fact that Native Americans armed with bows and arrows werent the death knell of the species. What did ivory-bills in was loss of habitat, specically the logging of old-growth forests across their range. Ivory-bills were primarily found in the Southeasts virgin hardwood-forest river bottoms and swampy lowland forests and were well documented in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, east Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma. With their powerful chisel-like bill, they depended on lots of dying and dead trees such as sweetgums, ash and longleaf pine, where they removed the bark in search of insects and insect larvae. Ornithologists say ivory-bills needed immense areas to feed perhaps 10 to 12 square miles of old-growth forest per pair. As one old-growth forest after another fell to an expanding countrys insatiable demand for wood in the late 1800s, ivorybills began to vanish. In fact, ornithologists say the species was extremely rare after 1900. Nowhere was this more evident than in Florida. Whether an ivory-bill was actually spotted in the Cache River NWR is still a matter of debate. If even a single bird was actually spotted, it would have required quite a number of breeding pairs of birds over the past 100 or so years for birds to still exist today. Following the Cache River announcement, river-bottom searches were initiated in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas. Here in the Sunshine State, staff of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission assisted but found no evidence of the birds. Similar results followed in other states. I think most of us want to believe theres some place across the country that hasnt been searched where the granddaddy of North American woodpeckers still exists. It would be incredible if that comes to pass. Brought home a big buck or sh? Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com harvest Hook & Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Page 10

Perhaps obscured in that atmosphere at Bucks Field was the fact that the contest was pretty important for fourth-ranked Holmes County, too. Holmes County de nied Bozemans twopoint conversion attempt and escaped with a 27-25 overtime victory in the District 3-1A opener for both teams. The Blue Devils improved to 4-0 overall. Bozeman slipped to 2-2. Jacky Miles Jr. scored his second touchdown on a 7-yard run in overtime to break a 19-19 tie, and the Blue Devils two-point conversion gave them an eight-point lead. Bozeman got the ball back and answered with Isaiah Robbins 1-yard touchdown run, his sec ond of the game, to close within two. Quarterback Jacob Martinez rolled out to his right on the two-point attempt, but his pass sailed high and out of the end zone to deny the Bucks a chance to stretch the game to a second overtime. Like they did to open the game, the Blue Dev ils scored on their rst possession of the second half. Holmes County ap peared to be lining up in the Wildcat formation with top tailback Kodi Russ taking the snap. The handoff went to Ty Russ, however, and he raced around the left end and went untouched on a 66-yard sprint for a 19-13 lead. Holmes County couldnt preserve that cushion, though. Rob bins bulled into the end zone one minute into the fourth quarter to help Bozeman even the score at 19-19. Holmes County drove 75 yards in seven plays on the games opening drive, and Miles Jr. dove into the end zone off the right tackle to give the Blue Devils a 6-0 lead just 2 minutes, 57 seconds into the contest. Bozeman didnt have the quick-strike capabili ties of its opponent, but the Bucks chipped away at Holmes Countys de fense with Martinez and Joey Brannen attacking the edges and Daniel Tay lor and Robbins pound ing the ball between the tackles. Bozeman put together a clock-chewing, 74-yard drive spanning the rst and second quarters that resulted in Martinez and receiver Alex Hobbs connecting on a 35-yard touchdown pass to knot the score at 6-6 with 11 1/2 minutes left in the half. The Bucks earned their rst lead when they took advantage of a costly Holmes County fumble. Blue Devil quarterback Ethan Russ dropped back to pass only to have the ball squirt out of his right hand. Several Bozeman players had an opportuni ty to fall on the ball before Jon Gay nally pounced on it at the HC 1. Bran nen scored a touchdown on the next play for a 13-6 advantage with 3:11 left in the quarter. That lead lasted exact ly 17 seconds. Kodi Russ collected the ensuing kickoff at the Blue Devil 10, and he split a seam in Bozemans cov erage team. Russ reached the sideline in front of his teams bench and outran the Bucks pursuers to the end zone on a 90-yard return that tied the game again, 13-13. Martinez rushed for 122 yards on 17 carries and completed two passes for 59 yards for Bozeman, which compiled 241 rush ing yards as a team. Kodi Russ nished with 80 yards on 18 carries, and Ethan Russ completed three passes for 77 yards. Both teams struggled on special teams, combin ing for four missed extra points and two missed eld goals. Bozeman also was hampered by nine penalties for 55 yards.

Marianna started the game briskly, recovering their own game opening kick off. In fact, all Mari annas scores were in the opening half, Chipleys lone touchdown came with a scant 1 minute, 32 seconds on the game clock. Bulldog Chris Bowers romped in from the twoyard marker for the rst score. But the Dogs would not score again until the second period when Quar terback Michael Mader completed a pass into the end zone and the waiting arms of Roderick Copeland with 7:59 on the clock. Marianna scored its nal TD with 31 seconds in the half when a Tiger fumble set up a seven-yard run from Chris Bowers and Michael Maders third straight point after through the uprights. The second half was a series of three and punt stunts, for both Dogs and Tigers until the nal min ute of the fourth when Koby McCrary took a 10-yard touchdown jog. The PAT was no good, leaving the nal score Marianna 21, Chipley 6. It was the rst win for Marianna against Chipley in the last seven meetings. Chipley next meets Cot tondale on Thursday.

Washington, Holmes at a glance Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser B P A GE 1 Section Wednesday, SE PT EMBER 28 2011 By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com It has been a difficult year for area farmers, to be sure. And harvest is bringing a new set of challenges to overcome. As you can see from the pho tographs on this page, the cot ton fields are white and harvest on a number of farms is under way. But, according to Andy An dreasen, Washington County ex tension agent with the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sci ence (IFAS) at the University of Florida, not many (if any) local peanuts are being harvested, and its the yearlong story. We need a good, soaking rain to allow the harvesters to do their work, he said. The drought talk is more of the same in an area that be gan the growing season under extreme drought and spent a great percentage of the summer designated severe drought. And the area is coming off a multiple year rainfall deficit in the double digits, limiting the amount of water readily avail able for irrigation. In most parts of Washing ton and Holmes counties, early drought was so extensive that crops had to be replaced. This has pushed cotton and peanut harvests together, if farmers are able to harvest after expect ed thundershowers this week. A combination of drought, disease and an economic shift to other crops could make Flor idas peanut harvest one of the smallest in more than two de cades and increase the price of peanut products. The same is true of peanut powerhouse Georgia. The Atlanta Journal-Con stitution reports that Georgia produces about 1 million tons of peanuts in an average year, or roughly half the countrys total harvest. This years pro duction totals will not be known until the harvest has finished, but a good harvest would likely produce 650,000 to 700,000 tons of peanuts, said Don Koehler, head of the Georgia Peanut Commission. The latest forecast from the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts nationwide production will be down roughly 17 percent this year, said Scott Sanford of the U.S. Farm Service Agency. One problem is a continuing drought across the state. Uni versity of Georgia agronomist John Beasley met with belea guered peanut farmers in Bak er County last week. They have not received enough rainfall, despite recent rain showers. Extreme heat, combined with insects and other diseases, also hurt the crop. Too little, too late, Beas ley said, speaking of the recent rain. What Im seeing today we needed six, eight weeks ago. Further reducing the peanut crop was a decision by many farmers to plant fewer peanuts and more corn and cotton since those commodities were fetch ing better prices. Those factors could increase the price for products that use peanuts, such as peanut butter. The maker of Jif, the best-sell ing peanut butter, has said it ex pects to raise prices 30 percent in November because of signif icantly higher peanut costs. The uctuating price of cotton makes prediction of prots to farm ers more difcult, said Andreasen. There remains a wide range out there, based on crop quality. Watch the News and TimesAdvertiser for future reports of harvest. Farmers start harvest after difcult year Normally, we would show peanut harvest with this feature, too, but ag agents say few peanuts are able to harvest because of drought-related soil conditions. PH O T O S FROM I F AS Machine moves through local cotton eld taking in harvest. Cotton, usually already to processors by now, was either delayed or replanted due to drought conditions.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Some years ago I came upon a very beautiful and pow erful prayer. I had picked up J.D. Salingers 1961 novel, Franny and Zooey, in a used book store, and in the course of reading this short novel, discovered what is sometimes called The Jesus Prayer. The prayer is deceptively simple, consisting of just twelve words in its longest versions. The long version of the prayer is as fol lows: Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner. It can be shortened to Lord Jesus, have mercy on me or to anything to be prayed silently and repeated over and over without ceasing, until it becomes an almost uncon scious part of our being, literally in rhythm to the beating of our hearts and our breathing. This prayer has a long his tory, going back to Eastern Orthodox monasticism, and is the subject of the anonymous 19th century Russian work, The Way of a Pilgrim. But, the prayer itself actually has its roots in the New Testament, where we are told Truly, tru ly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, He will give it to you in my name. Hitherto you have asked nothing in my name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:23-24) And, in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, we are told to pray without ceasing. The Jesus prayer is a you to try it. But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner! -R.S.V.

Matthew 26:41 Place your ad here for only $8.00 per week Use the Force, Steve (and yall) This week, my Auburn University junior sent me his Christmas list item via Facebook. And it got me to thinking, so I decided to share it with you. Ill put it up on the Washington County News Facebook page in case youd like to see the video. Anyway, the one-minute video clip is a television commercial for the Volkswagon Passat featuring what I am assuming is a little boy in Darth Vader costume. Darth tries his best to use the force on the dog, a doll, the washing machine, his lunch. All fail, to his obvious disappointment. Then Dad comes home, and Darth uses the force on the Passat. From inside, Dad uses the remote control to start the car, much to Darths surprise. Well, sad to say, my Darth will not find a Passat under the tree this year, but you can find spiritual truth anywhere if you look, right? The commercial reminds me of myself, spiritually speaking. I go around seeking to use the force on all around me, only to be disappointed that the force doesnt work for me. And I forget: the Force is not within me. Certainly, the Force channels through me. The Force uses me as a tool to accomplish the will of the Force Giver. But it is not mine to control. In point of fact, the Force is sometimes a gift of God. Often, it is a responsibility, a task God wants me to accomplish. In any event, the best moment of the commercial mimics the best spiritual moment: when the Father applies and supplies the power. Ultimately, of course, it is the Father who decides when and what will be done. Otherwise, we are left with empty gestures we make to no effect whatsoever. The point here is to stay connected to the true Force. Rather than wielding it, we are used by it as a conduit of His power and grace. I am most thankful today that I am empowered to see His Force at work and humbled to be reminded that I am blessed to be an instrument in His hand. Let me get your opinion on a situation. There is a man and a woman. They have been friends for sometime now; they often go out together. One day he asks her to marry him because he says he loves her. But she answers, I respect you. I admire you, but I dont love you and I dont want to marry you. Now imagine that he proposes to her a second time, and she declines again. And a third time, she declines. Finally, the man says, You know what? I love you so much I am going to force you to marry me. I am going to force you to spend all of your life with me. Now my question is, would you consider that true love? Well, we live in a culture today where many people basically say they dont believe in hell. They use the word a lot in their vocabulary but say they dont believe it is an actual place. They will tell you that if there were a place, as described in the Bible, that a loving God would not send people there. What these people dont understand is, God does not send anyone to hell, but because He loves them He allows them to choose. The rst thing one must understand about God is that God does not just love, He is love. He is the denition of love. God is a loving God, but He does not love in the sense that most people use that word today, meaning a sentimental emotion, some warm fuzzy feeling that is tolerant of everything and everybody. God is a loving God, but His love is a holy love. His love is a righteous love. His love is a just love. Actually because He is Love according to Ezekiel 33:11 and 2nd Peter 3:9, God does not want anyone to go to hell. It is actually a place that He created for the Devil and his angels, according to Matthew 25:40. Another thing that most people dont know or want to forget is that Jesus Christ Himself spoke more on the subject of hell than any other subject. The question is, why would He do that? Because He wanted everyone to know that it was a real place, that God gives sinners an opportunity to choose to spend their eternity there or in Heaven, a place He has prepared for them. You see, that is real love. Because the real question people should ask today is, Why would a loving God force a person to go to Heaven? The Bible is very clear: God hates hell, and He hates people going there. But Gods love is so merciful and so real that He allows people to choose hell if that is what they want. We all know this world is lled with people who reject Gods love every day, who have no desire to worship Gods Son, who have no hunger to hear Gods Word or fellowship with Gods people. God understands that they would be totally out of place in heaven. Can you imagine people who have had no time for God, no desire for God, no hunger for God, cant stand the thought of going to church and learning about God or hearing the Word of God, dying and ending up in heaven in an eternal church service, where noon never comes and you never get out? And spending all that time with people who do love God and are praising God and worshipping the God that they never knew and never cared for? In that sense, heaven would be hell for them. So in a real sense, Gods love demands a hell, because hell is about love. It is God loving a person so much that He gives them that which they sought and desired their entire life, a place where there is no God, a place where they will never be confronted by His love for them or about truth and what is morally right. People also often ask why there is so much evil on the earth. The answer is the same: God created us with the ability to choose. If you believe that a human being has the right to choose and the ability to choose, then that demands that you believe in hell, for without hell, there is no choice, and without choice, heaven would not be heaven. In the real sense of the word, heaven in reality would be hell. If your choice is only limited to loving God whether you want to or not, and going to heaven whether you want to or not, then there really is no choice at all. Hell is not simply a sentence that God passes on sinners who reject Him; it is the end of a path that is freely chosen in this life (here and now). To every person on earth who kept God at arms length, who has said by their actions, their thoughts, We dont want any part of God or any part of His son, no part of His salvation, no part of praising Him or worshiping, just want to keep Him at a distance, God says, You want distance? I will give you the ultimate distance. I will give you an eternity totally separated from Me. It is simply the eternal fruit of an earthly life that was lived totally apart from God. But no one has to go there. The story is told of a man sitting in a restaurant reading his Bible, when he heard two men arguing at the next table. One of the men got up to leave, and as he left he said to the other, Go to Hell! With that, the man sitting in the next booth reading and listening, turned around and tapped the man on the shoulder that was left sitting and said, Ive been reading the directions, and you dont have to go, if you dont want to. No one has to go, but everyone must decide for themselves and make preparations for eternity in this life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved (John 3:16-17 KJV). What do you choose? Does your life reect your choice?

Gifted with a nurturing spirit, she signicantly assisted her mother in caring for her younger brothers and sister. This carried over into her roles of Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and Aunt. Any member of the family who knew her also knew they were loved by her. One of her greatest contributions to building the Kingdom of God was that of being a Godly mother. Her two sons grew up to become ministers, and her daughter serves God faithfully in local church work, especially through her musical talents. Her other greatest contribution was in being a loyal pastors wife for over 40 years. She humbly ministered alongside her life-mate in every congregation they served in the AlabamaWest Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Her walk with Christ began during a revival at the Parker Methodist Church, adjacent to Panama City. After receiving Christ during one of the evening services, she encouraged her husband, Malcolm, to attend with her the next evening. It was then that he too received Christ and later accepted Gods call into ministry. M.E. was preceded in death by her parents, J.C. and Marie Brock, and sister, Myrelle Simmons.

Bonifay 1720 S Waukesha Street (850) 547-2260 Chipley 1044 Hwy. 90 East (850) 638-8376 By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Its almost like an episode from Ripleys Be lieve It or Not: No longer are Floridians more likely to die as the result of an auto crash than drug use. Today, more in the state are losing their lives in the wake of an exploding metham phetamine epidemic. According to law enforcement reports, there are some jurisdictions where meth cooking and/or addiction are growing 28 percent or more annually. And though Washington County Sheriff Bob by Haddock isnt seeing that extreme growth, he did say in an interview late last week that meth processing and use are growing and are a growing problem here. The trouble is the high you get the rst time you try meth is the highest high you will ever get, Haddock said. And over time, he said, meth destroys the brains dopamine receptors, meaning the only small sense of comfort and happiness an addict gets is when under the in uence of the drug. People get desperate to have it, the sher iff said. That is why you see people robbing stores or anywhere they can get cash without even bothering to use a mask. For years, parents have been warning teens that the addictive properties of meth are such that they cant even experiment once, and a new national advertising campaign aimed at teams is nding at least limited success in re tarding rst-time use. What makes meth so dangerous? There are a variety of reasons, Haddock said. First, the nature of the high received is ex tremely addictive, and the damage to the physi ology of the brain also is extreme. Second, Had dock said, a person under the inuence of meth is energized for a number of hours, even days before crashing. The shear fatigue involved Meth use a growing problemBOCC: No more free dirtBy Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY No more free dirt, the com mission has ruled. The Washington County Board of County Commissioners approved of Commissioner Todd Abbotts request for the commission to stop giving away free dirt during its regularly scheduled meet ing Monday, Sept. 26.

Arrested were Timothy James Braddy, 23, Chipley; Christopher Ryan Bass, 21, Chipley; Justin Ed ward Brown, 23, Caryville; Christon Faith Patrick, 22, Chipley; and Tina Monique Hill, 25, Chipley. According to the report, a Wash ington County Sheriffs Ofce depu ty, acting off a tip, arrived at the res idence in Chipley during the early morning hours and, after WCDTF investigators arrived for assistance, was given consent by the property owner to search the residence. Investigators found the ve sus pects inside the residence in the process of cooking meth. They also found methamphetamines, drug paraphernalia and a shake and bake bottle actively producing methamphetamines. Because of the volatile nature of the meth lab, the house was imme diately cleared, and ofcers trained in methamphetamine lab disman tling were able to safely contain and remove the lab. Also found were several bottles of what is commonly referred to as bi-layered liquid, which was dened in the report as the product you have after the initial cooking process Ch H Ris IS TOphe PHE R RyanRYAN Bass BASS TiTIMOThyHY BBRaddyADDY JUsSTinIN BBROwnWN TinaTINA HillILL ChHRisISTOnN Pa A TRicICK Just-released inmate dead in Bay CountyFrom Staff ReportsA registered sex offender was found dead in a wooded area off Tram Road in Panama City on Monday afternoon.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 28, 2011 more dirt away, not even mud dirt, that whatever dirt is acquired by the county be taken back to the pit for county reuse, even ditch dirt, Abbott said. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said this was an excellent idea from a legal standpoint. The county would be less likely to face legal is sues if we just did away with giving away free dirt, he said. The board approved of the recommendation four to one, with Commissioner Charles Brock voting no. Brock said his only issue was the expense of now having to haul the dirt back to the pits, wasting gas and putting unnecessary strain on the countys work equipment.Other business Goodman presented the board with an update of the new Sunny Hills Mu nicipal Services Benets Unit (MSBU) ordinance the board had requested of him. Goodman requested that the board reconsider their original proposal of allowing new members Sal Zurica and Chuck Ward to appoint two more members each. Instead, Goodman suggested that Zurica and Ward choose ve members and the board choose two from each. Commissioner Hulan Carter, who originally pro posed and motioned for Zurica and Ward to appoint two new members each, nullied his vote and after board approval motioned to follow Goodmans advice, which was approved by the board. Weve organized an or dinance that if they cant work together that we as a board can move on without them, Goodman said. Hopefully well have names by the November meeting, and well have a nal ordinance by then, too. The board approved of County Manager Steve Joyners request to pay the $35,000 deductible to their insurance company to continue negotiations in regards to an inmate who needed $210,000 in medical expenses. Goodman said even when the inmate was released, any medical ex penses stemming back to this case would be covered under the countys insur ance policy. Commissioner Charles Brock said he would like to see the Vernon Can ning Center back up and running. The board approved of Commissioner Abbotts of cial resignation as a mem ber of the Tri-County Com munity Board and his rec ommendation that Brock ll in his position to ensure the steady progress of the Vernon Canning Center. Carter requested that any work done by the coun ty engineer must be rst approved by Joyner; that all overtime must be approved by Joyner, with the exception of emergency overtime; and that county crew chief David Corbins crew go from four day work weeks to ve day work weeks. All of Carters re quests were approved. The board approved of Goodmans request to approve the resolution to pave the rest of Clayton Road and enter into an agreement with the Florida Department of Transpor tation, which requires no matching funds. The board agreed to look into Commissioner Donnie Stricklands request for the county attor ney to look into bumping up the requirements for mandatory inventory items to start at $500 in value in stead of $100. Commissioner Joel Pate said the septic tank issue isnt over with yet and that it will be coming up in a meeting in November in Destin. I encourage everyone whos against it to call, send letters and emails and let legislation know how much theyre against it, Pate said. Ill be keeping everyone updated as much as possible on the matter.Also approved Request approval for clerk of court to pay vouch ers for August 2011 totaling $2,010,852.91.

This will allow the attorney to devote the necessary resources to Washing ton County in an effort to better serve the Boards interest. Joyners request to keep Carr, Riggs & Ingram as county auditors.

After last weeks article appeared, Paula Simmons Dalton, a native Vernon daughter, called to expound further on the gopher story, explaining who the Pensacola Gopher Buyer was. Paula did not seem upset that my prattle column was headlined with a possum reference, not gophers, and the caption under the picture mentioned a buyer coming to Chipley for a load of gophers, not Vernon. Paula stated the gopher buyer referred to in last weeks prattle, J. Q. Powell owner of City Curb Market in Pensacola, is a brother to Ida V. Powell Dalton, who married Dr. B. W. Dalton, and are the parents of her husband, Powell Ernest Dalton. The colorful and well respected Vernon medical doctor, Dr. B. W. Dalton, and his bride, married on Nov. 27, 1910 in Campbellton, Florida, where he operated a drug store and a medical practice, including surgery. Dr. Dalton moved to Bonifay in 1913 and was associated with Dr.L. H. Paul of Bonifay, where both served as physicians for many years with the Brown-Florida Lumber Company of Caryville. He later moved to Vernon, by way of Hinson Cross Roads. In Vernon, he practiced medicine, operated a drug store, was a Justice of the Peace performing marriages, and served as Postmaster. His last medical practice was in Chipley where he and his wife made their home. Paulas call immediately brought to mind that her husband was named Powell Ernest Dalton in honor of his mothers maiden name. Paula and Ernest grew up in Vernon and married July 16, 1944 at Vernon Methodist Church, with ceremony performed by Rev. J. W. Marley. On the topic of gophers, Paula and I agreed that the market for them was for real and that many locals relied upon them for meat. Upon noting that her husbands uncle, J. Q. Powell, was paying two and one-half cents per pound, and the desired weight was a twelve pound gopher, the two of us concluded that our neighbor of yesteryear, who captured the animals as a livelihood, had chosen a good source of employment. If he only caught four full weight gophers per day, the going rate would bring him a total of $1.20, possibly more than he would have made at the local sawmill. Paula, who was born in Red Head, has called Vernon home almost all of her life. She graduated from Vernon High School in 1943, during the critical times of World War II. Her parents were Paul Farris Simmons and Anna Mae Jackson Simmons. She was the only girl born into the family of ve boys. The boys were Ranvil, Mack, Jack, Bruce and Jimmy (Skeet) Simmons. Powell Ernest (Ernie) Dalton was the only boy in his family and had three sisters, Helen, Mary Ester and Minnie Francis. Born to Ernest and Paula were Rhonda Ellen, Virginia Ann, Patsy Gayle and Paul Evan Dalton. All of their children have maintained close ties to Vernon. Paula continues to live on the banks of beautiful Holmes Creek where shing has been her main pastime throughout her life. She can also name many of the historic activities which happened in her back yard in earlier time. The docking of the steam ships, which plied the waters of Holmes Creek, happened in a stones throw of her present boat landing facility. Recently this lady mentioned the popular shingle mill which operated in her early life, and located on the creek bank. The mill was owned by a Mr. and Mrs.Tucker, whose daughter, Ethel, married Homer Polk. The Polks came to Vernon, lived near the Tucker home, and was involved in shingle production. Their two beautiful girls, Ladare and Edna Earl Polk, grew to adulthood and completed Vernon High School in 1946. Other industry along the Holmes Creek Bank included a saw mill and grist mill operation by Mr. Big Six Williams, a second shingle mill owned by a Mr. Yohn, a cigar factory, just yards inland from the creek which later became a residence. In later years, a spool mill, which produced spools for shipping electric wiring, became an important source of employment. Paula Dalton is a walking pillar of information on Vernon history. She is a charter member, and has demonstrated a keen interest in the Vernon Historical Society and Museum. She continues to be a major contributor to the interesting array of antiques, writings, books and other cherished relics of the past, which ow almost weekly into the facility. She donated the examination table, complete with accessories of the time, used in the medical ofce of Dr. Dalton The original letter inquiring of the availability of gophers from the Pensacola business man, is on permanent display in the museum. She is responsible for many other interesting items now in the facility. The Vernon Museum is open each Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and is located in the old Vernon High School building. Paula Dalton is one of the original founders of the Vernon High School Alumni Club which meets the rst Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. for lunch at Simbos. This informal Dutch treat meal gathering is open to all who are interested in attending. This lady keeps up with all the happenings in Vernon and can be relied upon to spread the word on illnesses or deaths occurring in the town. The prattler is indebted to her for assistance in preparing todays writing and for her encouragement in many previous articles of the past. See you all next week.SpSP Ec C Ia A L TO TT HE NN EWSPaula Dalton and EErnie Dalton pictured as they celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary.Gopher story gets explanation PERRYS p PRaA TTLEPerry Wells Dear Editor, Fall is just beginning and with it comes the best time of year to camp. Three Rivers State Park is a beautiful place to come out and enjoy a hiking trail or a good day fishing. The wildlife at Three Rivers has been very active, so bring a camera. The park drive is resurfaced to make your visit more comfortable as you search for the white-tailed deer and fox squirrels that are commonly seen along the park drive. Our recently completed prescribed burn allows you to see the flora and fauna of the area and provides an interesting contrast to the brightly colored plants bursting forth. Three Rivers has thirty campsites in the campground and one cabin built right on the edge of Lake Seminole. Campsites with water, electricity and fire rings are $16 a night. The cabin sleeps four, and includes one bedroom, a loft, bathroom, dining room, kitchenette, fireplace and screened porch. It is rented for $65 a night. In addition to family camping, the park also has a youth/group camping area. This semi-primitive camping area is divided into two camping areas with a bathhouse in the center. The park can set up a service project for youth organizations, such as litter clean up, planting native species or construction projects. Whether at the campground or while visiting the day use area, visitors have many activities to choose from at the park. For a nice relaxing day, pack a picnic and enjoy lunch under a covered pavilion overlooking Lake Seminole, and then let the kids play on the playground. For a great day outside, bring a fishing pole or take a leisurely walk on a nature trail. Want to get some fresh air and exercise? Bring your bike and ride through the park or rent a canoe and paddle around the lake. The park also offers pavilion space to rent for family gatherings, reunions, birthdays, weddings and other events. Three Rivers State Park is a great family spot for recreation and relaxation!

LocalA6 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 28, 2011Accidents happen, and pets can get burned for one reason or another just like their owners can. When this happens, it is best to have a hands-off policy and leave the treatments to the professionals. The best thing an owner can do in the case of a burn is get the animal to a veterinarian as soon as possible; burns are considered to be emergencies in just about all situations, and the sooner they are brought in, the better, says Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer specializing in dermatology, at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Sometimes pet owners will not notice the burned area for days or even weeks after the burn has occurred. One thing to keep in mind with burns is that sometimes what is seen initially is only the tip of the iceberg. What may look like only a red spot of skin on a pets side following a burn incident can quickly become devitalized, dead tissue, which is not only painful but also more at risk for infections over the next couple of days, explains Diesel. Infection in the animal is a big concern when dealing with burns, especially if the burn goes deeper into the lower layers of the skin. If the skin barrier is not intact and normal, bacteria can quickly enter the wound causing not only local infection but also potentially it can get into the blood stream. This puts the animal at risk for serious illness and potentially death, says Diesel. Diesel explains that very serious burns require hospitalization and care for several days to weeks at a time to monitor and control for any side effects of the burn. Cars are often one of the causes for accidents resulting in pet burns. On a hot day, the shade underneath a car or truck might seem very appealing to an animal outside. Even on a cold day, the heat of a car engine can be comforting for a kitty out in the cold. If the animal comes in contact with a hot mufer or catalytic converter even for a split second, a serious burn can occur. There are many other scenarios as well that could be the cause of pet burns, such as: barbeque grills, space heaters, spilling hot liquids or food when cooking, objects laying in the yard that conduct heat such as hoses or tools, or puppies or cats chewing on plugged in electrical cords. Different types of burns require a bit different treatments, explains Diesel, Chemical burns for example, might become much worse when water is applied to them, so the nature of the burn helps the veterinarian know how best to treat it. Sometimes owners do not witness the animal getting burned, so it is important to be able to try and distinguish if a mark that is found on a pet is actually a burn. Burns have a variable appearance based on the extent and severity on an animal, says Diesel, Initially, it may start as the skin itself just looks a little red or inamed, while more severe burns can cause burning or singeing of the coat. Diesel explains that the pets hair may become dry, brittle, curled, or even lost completely. Severe burns may show up as large areas of exposed deeper skin; this would look like a scraped knee for example, which could be moist, oozing, and often very painful, says Diesel. Even what looks like only a mild burn can become much worse over time. This is particularly true for thermal burns, which may be caused by heat lamps, water blankets, or even hot water from a garden hose that was used for bathing. The skin may look red initially, but then may turn black, crusty, and become quite painful with these burns, says Diesel. Diesel, For example, if the owner trips over a dog or cat and ends up spilling a hot casserole on the pet, or spills candle wax on the pet, then removing the hot material would be good in that case. This is the extent to which an owner should try to help a pet with a burn. A veterinarian will be best able to provide and recommend pain control given the pets other medical conditions and extent of injuries. Owners can sometimes unintentionally burn a pet when drying them off with a hairdryer after a bath. Hair dryers can be helpful for drying off a pet, however owners need to be careful so as the hair dryer does not get too hot. If the owner wants to use a hair dryer, it should be done on a cool setting ONLY, says Diesel. Less harmful ways of drying off a pet would include thorough towel drying or allowing the animal to dry outside in the sun when the weather is not too warm. Sometimes more serious situations can occur such as house or barn res. In this case, the owner should closely monitor the pet not only for burns but also for signs of smoke inhalation. Smoke inhalation can be a big problem for dogs and cats, especially if that animal already has any sort of respiratory condition such as asthma, says Diesel. Signs of smoke inhalation can include coughing, sneezing, or even turning blue, gasping for air, or losing consciousness. Smoke inhalation is often treated with oxygen and possibly uid supportive care, says Diesel, Radiographs (xrays) of the chest may also be helpful to evaluate the lungs. When it comes to pet burns, time becomes crucial. The best thing an owner can do for their pet is to get them to a veterinarian as soon as possible to be evaluated and monitored. This is the best way to ensure getting uffy friends back to their playful and loving selves!

Its not clear if the inmate was the victim of a violent attack or if his injuries were sustained in an accident; Plessinger said only that the Inspector Generals Ofce is investigating the incident. There is scant information about violence in Florida prisons. In scal year 2009-10, the most recent statistics available, the Inspector Generals Ofce reported 6,806 violent crimes against inmates and 3,269 in mate injuries or deaths statewide. Inmate injuries or deaths include suicides and attempted suicides, accidental injuries or deaths, natural deaths and homicides. During the same period, 34 knives or other sharp instruments were conscated, either inside state prisons or as they were being smuggled inside. There were 102,232 inmates in the prison system as of June 30, 2010, according to DOC reports. More than 60 percent were convicted of drug, robbery, burglary, homicide or personal violence-related crimes. INJURED from page A1was given an ankle monitor to wear and released, ofcials said. A probation ofcer went to verify Meltons location about 1:30 p.m. and found him in the woods and unresponsive. The ofcer called for help. EMS responded and pronounced Melton dead at the scene, ofcials wrote. Sheriff Frank McKeithen said on scene that foul play was not suspected. Meltons body was turned over to the medical examiner to determine the cause of death.

LocalA8 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 28, 2011By Pat KellyFlorida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY BEACH The second annual Fall Fishing Challenge between the city and county piers begins this weekend, and City Council members, representing the citys Russell-Fields Pier, already have thrown down the gauntlet to the Bay County Commission. City Councilman John Reichard vowed Thursday the catch from the city pier by local and area anglers would again outweigh anything taken from the county pier. He also issued a challenge to the county downtown wussies, a term usually reserved for unmanly men and which he targeted at commissioners holed up in their large Panama City administrative building. Councilman Rick Russell also joined in. I dont think they even know what a fresh fish tastes like, Russell said of county commissioners. He said he might have to tie up some fish around the countys pier to make it easier on county commissioners. County Commissioner Mike Thomas gave back just as good as he got on Friday, saying the Beach Council was all talk and no pole. Rick and that bunch up there dont even know how to fish, Thomas said with a chuckle, defending the fishing off the countys M.B. Miller Pier. He said Russell baited his hook by squashing a tomato on the sidewalk. Bill Dozier (commission chairman) and I will meet Reichard and Russell at any time, them from the city pier and us from the countys, Thomas said. Well wear them out. The fishing contest, which began Friday and continues each weekend through Nov. 23, drew hundreds of fishermen from around the area last year who logged in roughly 1,000 pounds of fish. Prizes of $150 are given out each weekend for the largest king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, flounder and pompano from each pier, and a $250 prize is awarded for the heaviest catch of the entire challenge. A rod and reel is given in the 12-and-under category each weekend for the largest fish of any kind. All kidding aside, Thomas, who spearheads the contest along with Russell, called the event a great boost for the area, saying, the fishing competitors from each pier enjoy the competition more than we do. He said the challenge not only spotlights the great fishing in Bay County, but also highlights the twin 1,500foot piers, two of the longest on the Gulf Coast. For $2, even nonanglers can walk out along the piers and have one of the best views of the Gulf and beachfront, he said. The twin piers themselves also have been a point of friendly joshing between city and county officials since they were completed in 2009 and 2010 by the same contractor, with the city pier opening first. Thomas insisted Friday the county pier was able to correct any shortcomings from the design of the city pier, while city officials insist they had a secret deal to leave the citys structure a quarter-inch longer. Everyone knows everything is shorter in the unincorporated areas, anyway, Reichard said Friday. 306 West Brock Avenue Bonifay, FL (850) 547-9289 Rapid Recovery Program for In-Patient or Out-Patient RehabCome Take A Virtual Tourwww.bonifayrehab.comnPhysical, Occupational & Speech Therapy with vital stem available daily nOutpatient Rehabilitation nStroke Recovery nCardiac Recovery nRespite Care nRestorative Care ServicesnInfusion Therapy Services nAdvanced Wound Care Services with Specialized Physician on Staff to Oversee Wound Care TherapynTerminal CarenRespiratory Therapy ServicesnPharmaceutical ServicesnDietary ServicesnPatient & Family Educational ServicesnPastoral Care ServicesnSocial Services B ONIFAY NURSING & REHAB CENTER 105 Main Street, Chipley, FL 10% OFF Fall Specialcolor, cut, mani/pedi, facial or massageWALK-INS WELCOME CALL TODAY(850) 638-4416Ask About Extensions, Feather Extensions, Feather Locks or Brazilian Blowout!

One of the things that museums do is to present a topic and put all the information out there so the public can draw their own conclusion, executive director for the Science and Discovery Center Tish Sheesley said. This exhibit will looks at ways the family, as a unit, can live a healthier lifestyle. The hands-on, interactive exhibit features a balancing act, a literal version to showcase the psychological balancing act adults and children experience every day, along with other physical activities. On Oct. 1, the Eat Well, Play Well exhibit will open with a Twist themed kickoff event. There will be everything from the game Twister, then a twist dance competition, Sheesley said. There will also be outdoor activities, a karate group and a cooking demonstration. It is all to get parents and children to see how they could make small changes that help their overall well-being. This exhibit comes to Panama City at a good time as first lady Michelle Obama focuses on her Lets Move initiative to help combat childhood obesity. I am thrilled the first lady is fighting childhood obesity and the Eat Well, Play Well exhibit hits right on that topic, Sheesley said. I think the difference is learning nutrition and fitness information as a family opens up the conversation so parents and children can talk about it. The Eat Well, Play Well exhibit opens Oct. 1 and goes through Jan. 8, 2012. For more information call 769-6128 or log on to www.scienceand discoverycenter.org.

What you saw was a Florida fox squirrel, and biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission are asking you to go online and record your sighting of this creature, which is twice the size of an ordi nary squirrel. Fox squir rels often have distinctive, masked faces with a black head and white nose and ears, but there are wide variations in coloration, from tan to gray or black. You can use the FWCs Google map application at https://public.myfwc. com/hsc/foxsquirrel/Get LatLong.aspx to enter the location where you spot ted the fox squirrel. Your squirrel sighting will be logged automatically and assigned a specic latitude and longitude. The fox squirrel survey is a wonderful opportunity for children and adults to become amateur natural ists and get involved in con serving Floridas wildlife, said FWC wildlife biologist Courtney Hooker. We will learn more about where the Florida fox squirrels are by asking the public to go online and report their sightings of fox squirrels. The fox squirrel survey is part of a research proj ect by the FWC and the University of Florida De partment of Wildlife Ecol ogy and Conservation. It combines the latest in on line-mapping technology with the publics enthusi asm about sharing their wildlife observations. The fox squirrel survey began in August, and data will be collected through at least January 2012. So far, about 600 sightings of fox squirrels have been logged online. Fox squirrels have been observed in open woods, pine and cypress stands and mangrove swamps, but knowledge about their distribution is limited. Fox squirrels spend more time on the ground than in trees and often escape their en emies by running rather than climbing. Their favor ite food is pine seed. For more information, visit the Species Pro les area of MyFWC. com/Wildlife.FWC seeks help mapping fox squirrels METH from page A1at the point of crashing creates hazards. One big reason for the danger is production of the drug. Dangerous, poisonous chemicals are in use. In a shake and bake operation, these chemi cals often are loaded into a plastic soft drink bottle and shaken, the chemical reaction creating ex tremes of both heat and pressure that can lead to classic burns, explosions and chemical burns. And more and more frequently, manufacturers are even using their vehicles as mobile labs, an unbelievably dangerous practice. Meth addicts are also extremely dangerous for law enforcement, Haddock said, because the drugs effects create extreme paranoia in users. Haddock describes meth as a poor mans drug because it is relatively inexpensive to produce. When we make a cocaine or pill bust, we fre quently nd thousands of dollars in cash the site, he said. Never with meth. Most often a meth producer will simply make enough for personal use and that of enough com panions to spread the cost. Haddock is reluctant to describe law enforce ments strategies for ghting the growing epidemic, but is quick to point out that budget cuts at national, state and local levels are reducing the tools at his disposal. One example? The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency once paid for the safe dismantling of meth labs and disposal of hazardous materials. No more. Today, that is a cost borne by Washington County, itself suffering through an expected budget reduction of nearly 21 percent in the fiscal year starting Oct. 1. And Had dock said he has had to sideline at least one inves tigator to do background checks of department ap plicants to replace those leaving for better pay or benefits than Washington County can offer. and before you have your nished meth product.

OUTDoo OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASectionHooked on OutdoorsI was over in Hogtown Bayou on Saturday speck shing when I looked up and a teal came by at about 100 mph. Was it a blue wing or a green wing teal? Im sure some people can tell the difference, but I was lucky to even see it as it was moving so fast. I dont know what bird holds the all-time speed record, but the teal is no slouch when it comes to speed. Seeing this bird reminded me it was almost time for the early duck season Florida has had since 1981, when the FWC persuaded the federal government to open a special experimental duck season on wood ducks. The argument was that the wood ducks we were encountering in Florida were separate from most of the wood ducks that migrated down here later in the winter. The feds at rst balked at the idea of a season this early, but the FWC put in many man hours to prove we had a crop of ducks that never left this area. So in 1981 the feds approved a season, and it has been in force ever since. Beginning Sept. 24-28 you are allowed to take four ducks; a mixture of wood ducks or teal. You can take four teal or two teal and two wood ducks, for four birds a day per person. You might think it is too hot to duck hunt, but we have a dedicated bunch of duck hunters in this area who dont seem to let that bother them. They had better be sharp on the lookout, however, because no other birds can be shot this time of year. Of course, this early in the year we dont have the mix of ducks we will have during the winter months. Both of these birds are easily recognized by their size and sound. The sound of a wood duck is unmistakable when it is coming in to a roost or circling an area it intends to feed during the day. Break out the waders, boys duck season is just around the corner.

This pileated was photographed at a Bay County residence. Does the ivory-bill still exist?By Stan KirklandSpecial to Florida Freedom In spring 2005, news swept the United States and much of the world that the ivory-billed woodpecker, long thought to be extinct, had been found in the Cache River National Wildlife Refuge in Arkansas. The news was electrifying to birders and conservation groups. Gene Sparling, an amateur ornithologist from Hot Springs, Ark., reported seeing a single adult male ivory-bill in the Cache River refuge on Feb. 11, 2004. Other ornithologists soon joined the search for proof that ivory-bills still existed, and they seemed to make their case when David Luneau of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock made a short, blurry videotape of a reported ivory-bill taking ight from a tree. Some of the groups that reviewed the evidence and supported the claim that the woodpecker, with its 3foot wingspan and signature whitish-ivory bill, still existed included the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, National Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Some wanted to believe that the gigantic woodpecker, known by such names as white-back, pearly bill and Lord God bird, still ew safely somewhere. The name Lord God bird came from people seeing the bird and exclaiming, Lord God, what a b ird. Had the short video clip been clear, that would have been one thing. Ornithologists across the country weighed in, and many believed the searchers had spotted the smaller pileated woodpecker, which is common across the Southeast. To understand the discussion as to whether ivory-bills still existed, you have to understand something of the bird itself and the history of our country. Adult ivory-bills measured 19 to 21 inches, were bluish-black in color and had white markings on the neck, sides and back, which resembled a white saddle. Both male and female birds sported a prominent top crest, which was red in males and black in females. Early settlers and frontiersmen reported that male Native Americans, particularly chieftains, often wore the bills of ivory-billed woodpeckers on their belts or as part of breast plates. The author of In Search of the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker, Jerome A. Jackson, points to the archaeological record where the heads and bills of both ivorybilled and pileated woodpeckers were much in demand by Native Americans, sometimes far outside their range. He mentions the recent discovery of a Native American burial in Colorado with ivory-bills with the deceased, more than 1,000 miles from recognized ivory-bill habitat. Jackson and other authors accurately point to the fact that Native Americans armed with bows and arrows werent the death knell of the species. What did ivory-bills in was loss of habitat, specically the logging of old-growth forests across their range. Ivory-bills were primarily found in the Southeasts virgin hardwood-forest river bottoms and swampy lowland forests and were well documented in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, east Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma. With their powerful chisel-like bill, they depended on lots of dying and dead trees such as sweetgums, ash and longleaf pine, where they removed the bark in search of insects and insect larvae. Ornithologists say ivory-bills needed immense areas to feed perhaps 10 to 12 square miles of old-growth forest per pair. As one old-growth forest after another fell to an expanding countrys insatiable demand for wood in the late 1800s, ivorybills began to vanish. In fact, ornithologists say the species was extremely rare after 1900. Nowhere was this more evident than in Florida. Whether an ivory-bill was actually spotted in the Cache River NWR is still a matter of debate. If even a single bird was actually spotted, it would have required quite a number of breeding pairs of birds over the past 100 or so years for birds to still exist today. Following the Cache River announcement, river-bottom searches were initiated in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas. Here in the Sunshine State, staff of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission assisted but found no evidence of the birds. Similar results followed in other states. I think most of us want to believe theres some place across the country that hasnt been searched where the granddaddy of North American woodpeckers still exists. It would be incredible if that comes to pass. Brought home a big buck or sh? Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com. harvest Hook& Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Page 10

Perhaps obscured in that atmosphere at Bucks Field was the fact that the contest was pretty important for fourth-ranked Holmes County, too. Holmes County de nied Bozemans twopoint conversion attempt and escaped with a 27-25 overtime victory in the District 3-1A opener for both teams. The Blue Devils improved to 4-0 overall. Bozeman slipped to 2-2. Jacky Miles Jr. scored his second touchdown on a 7-yard run in overtime to break a 19-19 tie, and the Blue Devils two-point conversion gave them an eight-point lead. Bozeman got the ball back and answered with Isaiah Robbins 1-yard touchdown run, his sec ond of the game, to close within two. Quarterback Jacob Martinez rolled out to his right on the two-point attempt, but his pass sailed high and out of the end zone to deny the Bucks a chance to stretch the game to a second overtime. Like they did to open the game, the Blue Dev ils scored on their rst possession of the second half. Holmes County appeared to be lining up in the Wildcat formation with top tailback Kodi Russ taking the snap. The handoff went to Ty Russ, however, and he raced around the left end and went untouched on a 66-yard sprint for a 19-13 lead. Holmes County couldnt preserve that cushion, though. Rob bins bulled into the end zone one minute into the fourth quarter to help Bozeman even the score at 19-19. Holmes County drove 75 yards in seven plays on the games opening drive, and Miles Jr. dove into the end zone off the right tackle to give the Blue Devils a 6-0 lead just 2 minutes, 57 seconds into the contest. Bozeman didnt have the quick-strike capabilities of its opponent, but the Bucks chipped away at Holmes Countys de fense with Martinez and Joey Brannen attacking the edges and Daniel Taylor and Robbins pounding the ball between the tackles. Bozeman put together a clock-chewing, 74-yard drive spanning the rst and second quarters that resulted in Martinez and receiver Alex Hobbs connecting on a 35-yard touchdown pass to knot the score at 6-6 with 11 1/2 minutes left in the half. The Bucks earned their rst lead when they took advantage of a costly Holmes County fumble. Blue Devil quarterback Ethan Russ dropped back to pass only to have the ball squirt out of his right hand. Several Bozeman players had an opportuni ty to fall on the ball before Jon Gay nally pounced on it at the HC 1. Bran nen scored a touchdown on the next play for a 13-6 advantage with 3:11 left in the quarter. That lead lasted exact ly 17 seconds. Kodi Russ collected the ensuing kickoff at the Blue Devil 10, and he split a seam in Bozemans cov erage team. Russ reached the sideline in front of his teams bench and outran the Bucks pursuers to the end zone on a 90-yard return that tied the game again, 13-13. Martinez rushed for 122 yards on 17 carries and completed two passes for 59 yards for Bozeman, which compiled 241 rush ing yards as a team. Kodi Russ nished with 80 yards on 18 carries, and Ethan Russ completed three passes for 77 yards. Both teams struggled on special teams, combin ing for four missed extra points and two missed eld goals. Bozeman also was hampered by nine penalties for 55 yards.

Marianna scored its nal TD with 31 seconds in the half when a Tiger fumble set up a seven-yard run from Chris Bowers and Michael Maders third straight point after through the uprights. The second half was a series of three and punt stunts, for both Dogs and Tigers until the nal min ute of the fourth when Koby McCrary took a 10-yard touchdown jog.

Washington, Holmes at a glance Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser BPa A GE 1Section Wednesday, SEpt PT EMBER 28 2011 By Steve LinerManaging Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com It has been a difficult year for area farmers, to be sure. And harvest is bringing a new set of challenges to overcome. As you can see from the photographs on this page, the cotton fields are white and harvest on a number of farms is under way. But, according to Andy Andreasen, Washington County extension agent with the Institute of Food and Agricultural Science (IFAS) at the University of Florida, not many (if any) local peanuts are being harvested, and its the yearlong story. We need a good, soaking rain to allow the harvesters to do their work, he said. The drought talk is more of the same in an area that began the growing season under extreme drought and spent a great percentage of the summer designated severe drought. And the area is coming off a multiple year rainfall deficit in the double digits, limiting the amount of water readily available for irrigation. In most parts of Washington and Holmes counties, early drought was so extensive that crops had to be replaced. This has pushed cotton and peanut harvests together, if farmers are able to harvest after expected thundershowers this week. A combination of drought, disease and an economic shift to other crops could make Floridas peanut harvest one of the smallest in more than two decades and increase the price of peanut products. The same is true of peanut powerhouse Georgia. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Georgia produces about 1 million tons of peanuts in an average year, or roughly half the countrys total harvest. This years production totals will not be known until the harvest has finished, but a good harvest would likely produce 650,000 to 700,000 tons of peanuts, said Don Koehler, head of the Georgia Peanut Commission. The latest forecast from the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts nationwide production will be down roughly 17 percent this year, said Scott Sanford of the U.S. Farm Service Agency. One problem is a continuing drought across the state. University of Georgia agronomist John Beasley met with beleaguered peanut farmers in Baker County last week. They have not received enough rainfall, despite recent rain showers. Extreme heat, combined with insects and other diseases, also hurt the crop. Too little, too late, Beasley said, speaking of the recent rain. What Im seeing today we needed six, eight weeks ago. Further reducing the peanut crop was a decision by many farmers to plant fewer peanuts and more corn and cotton since those commodities were fetching better prices. Those factors could increase the price for products that use peanuts, such as peanut butter. The maker of Jif, the best-selling peanut butter, has said it expects to raise prices 30 percent in November because of significantly higher peanut costs. The uctuating price of cotton makes prediction of prots to farmers more difcult, said Andreasen. There remains a wide range out there, based on crop quality. Watch the News and TimesAdvertiser for future reports of harvest.Farmers start harvest after difcult year Normally, we would show peanut harvest with this feature, too, but ag agents say few peanuts are able to harvest because of drought-related soil conditions. phPH Ot T Os S FROM IF F ASMachine moves through local cotton eld taking in harvest. Cotton, usually already to processors by now, was either delayed or replanted due to drought conditions.Editors Life B B4Daffodils?

FAITH BSectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Some years ago I came upon a very beautiful and powerful prayer. I had picked up J.D. Salingers 1961 novel, Franny and Zooey, in a used bookstore, and in the course of reading this short novel, discovered what is sometimes called The Jesus Prayer. The prayer is deceptively simple, consisting of just twelve words in its longest versions. The long version of the prayer is as follows: Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner. It can be shortened to Lord Jesus, have mercy on me or to anything to be prayed silently and repeated over and over without ceasing, until it becomes an almost unconscious part of our being, literally in rhythm to the beating of our hearts and our breathing. This prayer has a long history, going back to Eastern Orthodox monasticism, and is the subject of the anonymous 19th century Russian work, The Way of a Pilgrim. But, the prayer itself actually has its roots in the New Testament, where we are told Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, He will give it to you in my name. Hitherto you have asked nothing in my name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:23-24) And, in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, we are told to pray without ceasing. The Jesus prayer is a you to try it.But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner! -R.S.V.

Matthew 26:41Place your ad here for only $8.00 per week. Use the Force, Steve (and yall)This week, my Auburn University junior sent me his Christmas list item via Facebook. And it got me to thinking, so I decided to share it with you. Ill put it up on the Washington County News Facebook page in case youd like to see the video. Anyway, the one-minute video clip is a television commercial for the Volkswagon Passat featuring what I am assuming is a little boy in Darth Vader costume. Darth tries his best to use the force on the dog, a doll, the washing machine, his lunch. All fail, to his obvious disappointment. Then Dad comes home, and Darth uses the force on the Passat. From inside, Dad uses the remote control to start the car, much to Darths surprise. Well, sad to say, my Darth will not find a Passat under the tree this year, but you can find spiritual truth anywhere if you look, right? The commercial reminds me of myself, spiritually speaking. I go around seeking to use the force on all around me, only to be disappointed that the force doesnt work for me. And I forget: the Force is not within me. Certainly, the Force channels through me. The Force uses me as a tool to accomplish the will of the Force Giver. But it is not mine to control. In point of fact, the Force is sometimes a gift of God. Often, it is a responsibility, a task God wants me to accomplish. In any event, the best moment of the commercial mimics the best spiritual moment: when the Father applies and supplies the power. Ultimately, of course, it is the Father who decides when and what will be done. Otherwise, we are left with empty gestures we make to no effect whatsoever. The point here is to stay connected to the true Force. Rather than wielding it, we are used by it as a conduit of His power and grace. I am most thankful today that I am empowered to see His Force at work and humbled to be reminded that I am blessed to be an instrument in His hand. Let me get your opinion on a situation. There is a man and a woman. They have been friends for sometime now; they often go out together. One day he asks her to marry him because he says he loves her. But she answers, I respect you. I admire you, but I dont love you and I dont want to marry you. Now imagine that he proposes to her a second time, and she declines again. And a third time, she declines. Finally, the man says, You know what? I love you so much I am going to force you to marry me. I am going to force you to spend all of your life with me. Now my question is, would you consider that true love? Well, we live in a culture today where many people basically say they dont believe in hell. They use the word a lot in their vocabulary but say they dont believe it is an actual place. They will tell you that if there were a place, as described in the Bible, that a loving God would not send people there. What these people dont understand is, God does not send anyone to hell, but because He loves them He allows them to choose. The rst thing one must understand about God is that God does not just love, He is love. He is the denition of love. God is a loving God, but He does not love in the sense that most people use that word today, meaning a sentimental emotion, some warm fuzzy feeling that is tolerant of everything and everybody. God is a loving God, but His love is a holy love. His love is a righteous love. His love is a just love. Actually because He is Love according to Ezekiel 33:11 and 2nd Peter 3:9, God does not want anyone to go to hell. It is actually a place that He created for the Devil and his angels, according to Matthew 25:40. Another thing that most people dont know or want to forget is that Jesus Christ Himself spoke more on the subject of hell than any other subject. The question is, why would He do that? Because He wanted everyone to know that it was a real place, that God gives sinners an opportunity to choose to spend their eternity there or in Heaven, a place He has prepared for them. You see, that is real love. Because the real question people should ask today is, Why would a loving God force a person to go to Heaven? The Bible is very clear: God hates hell, and He hates people going there. But Gods love is so merciful and so real that He allows people to choose hell if that is what they want. We all know this world is lled with people who reject Gods love every day, who have no desire to worship Gods Son, who have no hunger to hear Gods Word or fellowship with Gods people. God understands that they would be totally out of place in heaven. Can you imagine people who have had no time for God, no desire for God, no hunger for God, cant stand the thought of going to church and learning about God or hearing the Word of God, dying and ending up in heaven in an eternal church service, where noon never comes and you never get out? And spending all that time with people who do love God and are praising God and worshipping the God that they never knew and never cared for? In that sense, heaven would be hell for them. So in a real sense, Gods love demands a hell, because hell is about love. It is God loving a person so much that He gives them that which they sought and desired their entire life, a place where there is no God, a place where they will never be confronted by His love for them or about truth and what is morally right. People also often ask why there is so much evil on the earth. The answer is the same: God created us with the ability to choose. If you believe that a human being has the right to choose and the ability to choose, then that demands that you believe in hell, for without hell, there is no choice, and without choice, heaven would not be heaven. In the real sense of the word, heaven in reality would be hell. If your choice is only limited to loving God whether you want to or not, and going to heaven whether you want to or not, then there really is no choice at all. Hell is not simply a sentence that God passes on sinners who reject Him; it is the end of a path that is freely chosen in this life (here and now). To every person on earth who kept God at arms length, who has said by their actions, their thoughts, We dont want any part of God or any part of His son, no part of His salvation, no part of praising Him or worshiping, just want to keep Him at a distance, God says, You want distance? I will give you the ultimate distance. I will give you an eternity totally separated from Me. It is simply the eternal fruit of an earthly life that was lived totally apart from God. But no one has to go there. The story is told of a man sitting in a restaurant reading his Bible, when he heard two men arguing at the next table. One of the men got up to leave, and as he left he said to the other, Go to Hell! With that, the man sitting in the next booth reading and listening, turned around and tapped the man on the shoulder that was left sitting and said, Ive been reading the directions, and you dont have to go, if you dont want to. No one has to go, but everyone must decide for themselves and make preparations for eternity in this life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved (John 3:16-17 KJV). What do you choose? Does your life reect your choice?

Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. M.E. was born March 10, 1928, to J.C. and Marie Brock of Chipley. Gifted with a nurturing spirit, she signicantly assisted her mother in caring for her younger brothers and sister. This carried over into her roles of Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and Aunt. Any member of the family who knew her also knew they were loved by her. One of her greatest contributions to building the Kingdom of God was that of being a Godly mother. Her two sons grew up to become ministers, and her daughter serves God faithfully in local church work, especially through her musical talents. Her other greatest contribution was in being a loyal pastors wife for over 40 years. She humbly ministered alongside her life-mate in every congregation they served in the AlabamaWest Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Her walk with Christ began during a revival at the Parker Methodist Church, adjacent to Panama City. After receiving Christ during one of the evening services, she encouraged her husband, Malcolm, to attend with her the next evening. It was then that he too received Christ and later accepted Gods call into ministry. M.E. was preceded in death by her parents, J.C. and Marie Brock, and sister, Myrelle Simmons. She is survived by her adoring husband of 65 years, Malcolm; and her loving children, the Rev. Michael G. Roberts (Jo Ann), Marsha Scarborough (Sidney) and Mark J.
