LocalWashington County News | A3Wednesday, April 4, 2012 During the last two years, we have worked tirelessly to analyze, compare and revise the written policies of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce to ensure we are serving our community with unmatched professionalism in all areas. This will become the foundation for acquiring accreditation in the future, he said. Haddock has served the citizens of Washington County in the eld of law enforcement for 33 years. Of those 33 years, seven have been served as sheriff; 14 were served as investigator for the Ofce of the State Attorney, serving both Washington and Holmes counties; 11 years were served with the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce; and one year was served with the Chipley Police Department, according to the news release. Additionally, Haddocks law enforcement career includes more than 28 years served as a major crimes investigator and 30 years as a certied criminal justice instructor, teaching law enforcement and corrections students at both Washington-Holmes Technical Center and Chipola College in the areas of patrol techniques, investigation techniques and high liability areas including rearms and pursuit/tactical driving. Throughout his career, Haddock has completed a wide variety of in-depth training that includes the following certied training: basic law enforcement; ofcer eld training; injury and death investigation; child abuse, neglect and sexual battery investigation; narcotics identication and investigation; and multijurisdictional counterdrug task force training. Professional achievements have included the distinguished Ofcer of the Year Award, Washington County Leadership Charter Class, the distinguished United States Marshal Service for Fugitive Missions Award and being elected to the Florida Sheriffs Association Board of Directors. Raised in the Bonnett Pond area, Haddock is the son of Clifton and Shelby Haddock and the grandson of the late Jack and Annie Bell Haddock and the late Lester and Ruth Anderson. Haddock is a seventh-generation Washington County resident. He resides in Chipley with his wife, Laura. They are parents to daughters Amy Thornton and Mauri Myers, and grandparents to Morgan and Peyton Myers. He has a brother, Mark Haddock, and two sisters, Norma Scurlock and Violet Whitman. Haddock is a 1975 graduate of Vernon High School. I am honored to have served Washington County as sheriff for the last seven years. Together, we have worked to identify issues that needed to be addressed in Washington County, Haddock said in the news release. Over the last seven years, we have made a progressive, responsive and a highly developed sheriffs ofce a priority. Our community as a whole is experiencing the struggle between rapid growth and dwindling budgets. While this was true during my rst term, it has never been as critical to do more with less than in the current economic climate. I will continue, as I have for seven years, to be proactive in nding long-term solutions for our countys law enforcement needs such as actively pursuing additional grant funding and aggressively initiating programs that result in increased services to Washington County. As sheriff, basic adequate service is not an option. Skilled, proactive, well-organized and innovative policing instead will continue to be the standard at the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce, he said. We cannot afford the luxury of time for new leaders to become acclimated to the demands that face law enforcement in our county. Experience is not only important, but more than ever, it is essential in ensuring our department stays on course, while providing resourceful and professional law enforcement services, Haddock said. Since the day I assumed the ofce of sheriff, I have set clear goals such as the safety of our children, the elimination of illegal drugs, education and crime prevention among our senior residents and improved accessibility of law enforcement services to all residents. The sheriffs ofce has made steps towards meeting these goals, Haddock said, citing school safety and DUI prevention presentations, expansion of the Explorer program, the anonymous reporting of crime program Tip411, Communities Against Senior Exploitation presentations, introduction of the Public Service Ofcer program and the published monthly fraud and crime prevention alerts as examples. As a rural agency, we must utilize every tool made available to us to provide expansive, state of the art law enforcement services to our community. This is why I have brought in nationally recognized presenters and made advanced training available to local law enforcement ofcers here in our own county. We have sought, applied for, and been awarded, grant funding to consistently widen the reach of the Washington County Drug Task Force through high-tech surveillance equipment and funding for dedicated narcotics ofcers. In addition, I have made cultivating partnerships with state and federal agencies a priority through the consistent collaboration of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement), the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, and ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) on numerous cases such as the recent identication and subsequent takedown of the Gulf Cartel on federal narcotics charges, and the search and recovery of Baby Shannon, Haddock said. I am committed to the success of Washington County not only as your sheriff, but as a fellow member of your community. If re-elected, I will continue to work diligently as a dedicated servant to all the people of Washington County, Haddock said.

WANT MORE?Find us online at chipleypaper.com friend us on Facebook or tweet us @WCN_HCT Dear Editor, I would like to make some comments on last weeks article about the beatings our students get in our school system (NPR comments on spanking in schools, March 28 Page A4). I too heard the NPR broadcast and was appalled that they zeroed in on Holmes County. Seems that our schools have nally got bad enough to attract national attention. A little over a decade ago, scientists who were researching the effect these beatings have on children discovered that they caused a physical brain damage so severe that it could be seen with an MRI brain scan, it was severe, and it was permanent, caused by abuse and terror. Our military now recognizes this brain damage in adult soldiers and calls it post traumatic stress disorder, now commonly referred to as PTSD, caused by the terror of battle. My own memories of this when I was in school tend to verify this. In my second grade, at least half of our class was beaten every day. Out of a class of 64, we graduated 16, and I feel sure these daily beatings had a great effect on this statistic. Beatings do tend to quell childrens activities, and it is not from learning their lesson they have been turned into zombies, or conservatives in our everyday language, peaceful, unintrusive, obedient, unambitious and compliant because they have lost the ability to be any of the rambunctious things that they were before the beatings, with a brain that has lost much of its functionality and ability for independent and original thought. Coincidentally (or not), this does seem to parallel our countys economic and social fortunes. Perhaps we should look at the way we treat our children to see why we are so backwards here. I was fortunate that my parents made the effort necessary to protect me from the beatings my fellow students were getting in school. They never beat me nor allowed anyone else to, and I bene ted greatly from it all of my life.Charles W. SmithBonifay If you happened to read my column last week, you heard about the ice storm of 2010 that shut down most of northwest Arkansas for a couple of weeks. I have since been told by Floridians that, minus the ice and freezing temperatures, I had pretty much described a hurricane. And I imagine one bad storm is pretty much the same as the other, unless youre talking about tornadoes or tsunamis. And again as I am writing, there is a tornado warning in the news. Today its for Bay County. Thankfully nothing has come of it. I have had some close encounters with tornadoes though, so that brings us to this weeks topic. You might remember, what got me on the weather kick was Holmes County of cials and their effort to adopt the DeltAlert electronic warning system. The DeltAlert coalition went to the Board of County Commissioners last Tuesday, and the commissioners wanted more information before committing to helping purchase the warning system. Back in that alternate Washington County I used to live in, the city of Prairie Grove looked into a similar warning system, one which sends out emails, texts and phone calls to warn of bad weather, after they determined that replacing the citys tornado warning sirens was going to cost a lot of money, and that even with the best sirens, anyone who didnt live immediately around the sirens most likely would never hear them. Sirens werent really designed to be heard inside houses, especially well-insulated houses. Add your TV, stereo or mp3 player complete with headphones, and you probably arent going to know the sirens going off. To avoid spending money on a system most people either wouldnt hear, the city interviewed and ultimately bought into the CodeRed system. Within a few months, both surrounding towns, Farmington, Ark., and Lincoln, Ark., also were shopping for the system. This was all in 2010. At the end of 2010, the city council of Lincoln had also bought into the system and was in the process of setting up the database for notifying residents of severe weather. The on Jan. 1, 2011, it happened. Just before dawn on New Years Day, a EF-3 tornado struck the small community of Cincinnati, Ark., and killed four people. Cincinnati is about 10 miles west of Lincoln. Several homes and the towns re department were destroyed. Several letters and photographs from Cincinnati were found in Benton County, 35 miles away, in the cow pasture of my friend Kent Marts. The storms also hit Benton County and were part of a 27-hour tornado outbreak that killed 9 and spawned 36 con rmed tornadoes in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Louisiana and Mississippi. Cincinnati had no sirens, and there was very little warning for the small community. Just weeks earlier, the city of Lincoln had been discussing putting Cincinnati in their CodeRed program. Then the tornado struck. As bad as Cincinnatis disaster, however, the EF-5 multiple vortex tornado that destroyed Joplin, Mo., on May 22, 2011, made Cincinnatis carnage pale in comparison. That Sunday the same storm system came through Tulsa, Okla., en route to destroying Joplin. Shannon and I were in Akins Natural Foods at 31st and Harvard when the clerk came up to us and said there were tornadoes on the ground in west Tulsa and we should go home immediately and seek shelter. Since we were about 100 miles from home, we decided to run back to the hills. Listening to the radio as we drove east down U.S. 412, we heard the weather reports as funnel clouds traveled over south Harvard Avenue where we had just been 20 minutes earlier. Much of Joplin was destroyed, and 160 people died in that storm. Damage was estimated at $2.8 billion. Spencer Tirey, the photo editor for Northwest Arkansas Newspapers, was in Joplin that evening visiting his girlfriend who lived there. Her home, just outside of town, was unmolested, but when they heard the reports of damage, they went back into the city to help. Spencer wound up spending the night helping pull bodies from rubble, and he wrote a harrowing essay about his experiences. He had driven down one of the main roads of the city with the storm literally in his rearview mirror, but he hadnt recognized it for what it was a tornado so massive the sides of it couldnt be seen. The path of the storm was a mile wide in some parts. Whats the point? In Farmington, Ark., they had implemented the CodeRed program by the time the tornado struck Cincinnati. The CodeRed emergency noti cation system sent out more than 1,000 calls starting at 5:56 a.m. Friday to alert Farmington and Prairie Grove residents that they were in the path of a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service out of Tulsa, Okla, we reported in the Washington County Enterprise-Leader the Wednesday following the weekend tornado. This was the rst major storm since both communities signed on with the communication system. Jill Mason, Arkansas account representative for Code Red, said residents registered with the weather system receive calls only if they are located within the direct path of a storm or live within a polygon that shows the potential direction of the storm. Would CodeRed have saved lives in Cincinnati, or Joplin, if it had been available? Well never know. But I do know of some city of cials in Lincoln who wish they could have gotten the system in place just a little bit quicker.

After submitting the narrative on tailor-made cigarettes, the thought came to me in the middle of the night that the adjective describing the cigar smoker was used incorrectly. When the article was printed, the sad truth confronted me the word that should have been af uent, which Webster described as Rich; wealthy; opulent and the intended description of cigar smokers, came out ef uent, with a dictionary meaning of the liquid out ow of a sewer. My quick-witted friend Dr. Robert Snare, with his good sense of humor, jokingly told me, Judge, after reading your article, I now know why my cigars have been tasting different lately. I immediately got the message as we both had a good laugh from the prattlers gaffe. His further comment: At least you know that your column is being read. Faithful reader Odell Ward called to report his enjoyment of the smoking article and was kind enough not to mention the misused word. He did add Country Gentlemen smoking tobacco and Chester eld ready rolled cigarettes to the list that he smoked in his beginning years. He further told me, Perry, I put em down on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated after becoming fully convinced of their health hazards. The subject of railroads always catches the attention of friend Randall Roberts, whose brother John L. Roberts of Bonifay joined him as a railroad buff. John L. (Buddy) Roberts Jr., now residing in Elberton, Ga., is carrying on the tradition of exploring trains and rail lines as a hobby. It was my privilege to furnish information to him on the old B. C. Line that ran from Columbus to Southport in the 1930s. Randall recently responded to the article prompted by reader Vernon Lewis in Virginia that mentioned sharecropping trains and guitar picking and singing in local joints, all of which is of keen interest to my Bonifay native friend. The near accident recalled by Lewis was pinpointed by Randall Roberts as having been the passenger train traveling east, which would have stopped in Bonifay at 9:30 a.m. In those days, people could, and did, set their clocks by that train.

This train ran regularly from Pensacola to River Junction. The freight engines carried a four-number designation, while the passenger engines only had three, with the numbers re ecting the power and speed of a particular series of locomotives, Roberts said. He remembers an incident during World War II when No. 152 had a tire come off between Bonifay and Chipley. The tire is a steel ring heated on the drive wheel. The engine was dragged to the old Colomba Cucumber Shed near the Jim Chance home in Bonifay, where the section crew, consisting of seven men, lifted the tire, disconnected the drive rods and the engine was pulled to Pensacola for repairs. He reports that engines regularly stopped for coal and water in Chipley, where there was also a Wye, or Y for the train to turn around. Randall relates another train story when the The Gulf Wind, now called the Sunset Limited, broke down in Chipley while Ira Hewitt was employed at the Bonifay Depot. He and I traveled to Chipley to observe the action. The engine was jacked up with the engineer pounding underneath. After the train started rolling, my friend and I drove U.S. 90, along beside the tracks all the way westward to Wilcox Crossing, where we gave up the chase as the vehicle had reached speeds estimated at 80 miles per hour, reports the train enthusiast. On a personal note, Randall recalls when his aunt, Chrissie Miller (owner and operator of the Eureka Hotel in Bonifay), was brought home from a Jacksonville hospital by the train, arriving in Bonifay in the early evening. She was con ned to a stretcher, and the train made a special stop at Waukesha Street crossing, removed a window and passed the stretcher to an awaiting ambulance and the train proceeding on. Ive never heard of read of such a thing happening except when President Franklin D. Roosevelt died in Warm Springs, Ga. His body was placed on a funeral train for transporting to the nations capitol, concludes my friend. Commenting on the recent article of Greyhound driver, Conrad Futch, Randall Roberts remind me, Perry, I followed Greyhound history just about as much as trains. He mentioned that he recalls Greyhound driver Watkins, along with two others, Fritz Otto and a Mr. Mothershed, and remembered the descriptive adjectives, CourteousFriendly-Helpful appearing on the nameplate of the drivers name, attached just over the steering wheel. Reminiscing further, Randall mentioned that truck lines have replaced the hauling of freight once handled by rail. UPS and FedEx replaced Railway Express in addition to the small freight package once brought to the outlying areas by Greyhound and Trailways Bus. Our sophisticated electronic age has almost eliminated Western Union once relied upon heavily for urgent and important messages. My hosts of readers are assisting in keeping me overrated these days as a historian and genealogist, and I am enjoying every minute of it. See you all next week with another subject, which I wont reveal at this time.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com.Hook harvest SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOMThis is the rst deer killed by 15-year-old Jacob Burnham. He was killed at 5:15 p.m. Feb. 1 on private property while hunting with his grandfather, Daniel Smith. Beginning today, there will be grouper on the spit for shermen in the Gulf waters of Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin counties. The state has come to an agreement with these counties for an early grouper season for 2012 only. The regional season will end June 30. The season also includes all the waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all the waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters (from shore to nine miles out) off these four counties may not be brought ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. Overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties, because it is the least densely populated region of the Floridas Gulf Coast. Providing this spring season will balance the economic and social needs of this region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In Gulf of Mexico federal waters (beyond 9 miles) and in the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Oct. 31. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not be open during the July-throughOctober season, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits remain at 22 inches and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

COOL CATSCraigcat: A small boat with big potentialBy TINA HARBUCK654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Theres a new ride in the area. It has pontoons and a motor, but its not a pontoon boat. Its a Craigcat. The 11-foot-long two-seater boat can scoot across the water at 40 mph. But the biggest advantage of the small boat is the safety factor, said Capt. Bill McDonald of the Mindy Lou II. McDonald, who has been chartering for 35 years, is stepping out into the Craigcat venture along with wife Sheri, and children Sarah Hoffman and Thomas McDonald. The boats are for rent under A-1 Charters and they can also be purchased. They have the best safety record for any small water craft, Bill said. Theyre unsinkable with the stick steering, Sheri said. You cant really give it enough throttle to ip it. In addition to being very safe, they have the best environmental record, Bill said. Environmentally it leaves no footprint. When the boat is running on top, it leaves no wake. The boats have 4-stroke motors and are energy-ef cient. You dont have exhaust to deal with, Sheri said. Theyre awesome and very light weight. The heaviest thing about them is the motor. With the motor, the boat weighs 550 pounds and can carry two passengers along with a small cooler and whatever else you might like to take along within the 600-pound limit. They are considered a power boat or a personal watercraft, Sarah said. The boat takes six gallons of gas and should be good for eight hours of fun on the water. The rst time I went out on it, it was a little intimidating, Sarah said. I felt like I was in a mini-pontoon boat. But Ive had a blast every time Ive gone out. All Craigcats have a dry storage area behind the seats, and an area up front to put a cooler or tackle box. They all have a radio and MP3 music capability and small Bimini tops to get out from under the sun. Each boat has a splashguard across the front. Its very user friendly, Sheri said. The McDonalds and A-1 Charters have the dealership for all of Northwest Florida for Craigcats. Right now they have six for rent and hope to soon have a eet of 10. However, if someone would like to buy one, We can always have one in about a week and you can customize them, Sheri said, such as changing the color of the Bimini or out tting it for shing. To catch a ride on a Craigcat, call 837-1790.Photos by MARGUERITE PARKER | Special to Florida Freedom NewspapersCapt. Bill McDonald helps his wife Sheri and Marguerite Parker off the boat after a test ride Thursday morning. At top, Thomas McDonald has one of the catch-it Craigcats out tted for shing, complete with rocket launchers for rods, trolling motor and wings for his buckets or tackle box. Sheri McDonald and friend Marguerite Parker take one of the Craigcats out for a ride. The small boats can be rented by the hour, half-day or day at A-1 Charters behind the old Electric Cowboy on U.S. 98 in Destin.

HOSPITALITY SPONSOR By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Was Ryan Newman lucky or was he lucky at Martinsville? Well, he pulled off his rst win of the season and his rst ever win at Martinsville after Jeff Gordon ran out of gas and Jimmie Johnson was involved in an accident with Clint Bowyer in turn one. Gordon led the most laps at Martinsville, but Newman took advantage of Gordon running out of gas and in the frontstretch inched out ahead of A.J. Allmendinger for the win. David Reutimann had a bad day. What do they say, if it can go wrong it will? Well it did for Reutimann, and what ended his day on the track wasnt some horri c accident or someone spinning him out by getting a little to close his car simply stalled on the track. The accident that took out Jimmie Johnson happened when Bowyer barreled in to turn one and caught Johnsons bumper, sending Johnson into a spin and leaving him unable to nish the race. Kevin Harvick took the win in the Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville. Harvick had a real good day. Not only did he lead all the laps except for two, he also started in the pole position. Harvick now holds a series record after leading 248 laps. This was also Harvicks third win in the last four years. With Harvick winning the Kroger 500, the win also was the rst win for team owner Richard Childress. There were only seven cautions in the Sprint Cup race. Caution one came on lap 97 when Kyle Busch spun out between turns three and four. Caution two came when Dave Blaney was involved in an accident in turn two. Juan Montoya spun out in lap 263 for the third caution. The fourth caution came when Kasey Kahne blew his engine on the backstretch. On lap 361, Travis Kvapil spun out in turn two for the fth caution of the race. The sixth caution came on lap 496 when Reutimanns car stalled on the track. The seventh and most exciting caution of the race was when Bowyer barreled into turn one and clipped Jimmie Johnson, which sent Johnson into a spin. There are no races scheduled for this weekend because of the Easter holiday.Results from MartinsvilleGoodys Fast Relief 500 (Sprint Cup)1. Ryan Newman 2. A. J. Allmendinger 3. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 4.

Railroad Ave. By RANDAL YAKEY 522-5108 | @ryakey ryakey@pcnh.com MARIANNA A soft rain pelted the tent under which the family of U.S. Army Specialist Daquane Demetrius Rivers gathered at a cemetery to say their nal goodbyes on Saturday. After a 21-gun salute and taps were played, U.S. Army pallbearers presented American ags to Rivers wife, Natalie Rivers, and his mother, Barbara Ann Rivers, while mourners gathered around the family. A trains horn sounded off across a grove of trees inside the Orange Hill Cemetery as nal prayers were said. Spc. Rivers, 21, died in a noncombat incident March 14 in Paktika province of Afghanistan, according to the Department of Defense. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 172nd Infantry Brigade, Grafenwoehr, Germany, and was in Afghanistan supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, according to the Department of Defense. Earlier Saturday, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. James Thomas spoke to a couple of hundred mourners at the Marianna High School auditorium. Specialist Rivers signed up knowing we were in a long war against terrorists, Thomas told the gathering. Specialist Rivers stood between the extremists and the possibility of freedom for Afghanistan. He stared down the Taliban. At one point in the ceremony, presiding minister Janet Jackson read a statement prepared by Rivers mother. He had a way of winning you over, Jackson said from the podium. He was charming. He was courteous, he was respectful. He was just a joy. He was a great leader, a loving husband and an awesome friend. As Jackson read the statement, ushers passed out tissues for mourners shedding tears. He will forever stay in our minds and hearts, Jackson read. He will be truly missed especially by me, Mom. Outside the auditorium, Angie McNealy, a cousin of Rivers from his father, Reginald McNealys, side of the family, spoke glowingly of Rivers. He was a fun person, McNealy said. Hed make you laugh if you were going through anything. He knew all the right things to say and do. The Rev. Rueben Merritt said he watched Rivers grow up playing in the neighborhood near his grandmothers house. He was always joyful and laughing with a beautiful smile, Merritt said. Whenever you had seen him, you had seen joy. After the ceremony at the auditorium, Wilburn Jones, 22, walked slowly out of the auditorium past the line of military personnel. He was a classmate of Rivers. He was very kindly, kind-hearted, said Jones, his eyes xated someplace else. He was a good friend. Jones turned and walked away, disappearing into the crowd headed for the cemetery. Back at the gravesite, mother and wife sat quietly, weeping, as the graveside ceremony came to a close. A few mourners walked past the soldiers silver casket, touching the top where a single red carnation was laid.

We really want to thank our sponsors for helping make this event a reality, Prather said. Washington County Teen Court is an alternative, voluntary program offering young offenders an opportunity to make restitution for an offense through community service, specialized classes and jury service, thus avoiding nes and keeping the juveniles record clear, according to the programs website. By bringing the teens before a jury of their peers, which sentences them to constructive service in a community service organization and jury duty, this program seeks to deter teens from future unlawful behavior, while providing direct experience in the judiciary system and an understanding of their future role as a productive citizen, the website states. The goals of the program include holding juvenile offenders responsible for their behavior and helping them recognize that the consequences are a direct result of their own actions.

Odie, a Pomeranian, was adopted by one of the childrens families following the visit.Little Blessings Academy takes tripChipley High school: Disney for DisneySPECIAL TO EXTRAChildren from the Little Blessings Academy visited Partners for Pets on March 28 in Marianna. Nail-biting, gum smacking, knuckle popping they can be irritating habits people have. Even birds display their share of odd behaviors. Feather plucking is a common habit among parrot-type birds, says Dr. Alice Blue-McLendon, a veterinarian with the Winnie Carter Wildlife Center at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. While most adult birds lose their feathers naturally once or twice a year in a process called molting, it is not natural for a bird to pluck out its own feathers, says Blue-McLendon. One of the clues that a bird is plucking its feathers is to look at the birds head. Since a parrot cannot pluck feathers from its own scalp, a feather-plucking bird will have a full head of feathers but be missing a lot of feathers on other parts of its body. As simple as it may sound, the most common reason for a bird to pluck out its own feathers is boredom, says Blue-McLendon. When a bird isnt stimulated by its environment, it may begin plucking its feathers for entertainment or out of frustration, she says. Because of birds high intelligence level, environmental enrichment is extremely important for them, Blue-McLendon notes. They need plenty of toys to play with, especially ones they can chew. The more time they spend chewing on toys and food, the less time they have to chew on their feathers, she adds. Playing with loose feathers may spawn a nasty plucking habit. You dont want to encourage your bird to pluck its feathers out to have something to play with, Blue-McLendon says. Remove the feathers from the cage as soon as they fall out. Excessive grooming, or preening as it is known in the avian arena, is also not an appropriate pastime for birds. You should curb this behavior early, says Blue-McLendon. Preening can be another common precursor to feather plucking. She says its important to try to break any bad habits as soon as you notice them. Temporarily changing your birds environment is a good start, BlueMcLendon explains. Try adding new toys to its cage or simply rearranging its existing toys. Also, consider moving its cage to another area of the house, possibly one with heavier traf c. If your birds meals consist of only seeds, try to incorporate new foods and avors into its diet, says Blue-McLendon. However, know that change is not always the best remedy. Sometimes variation, especially sudden and dramatic variation, in a birds environment can also lead to feather plucking, says Blue-McLendon. Also, before you make any changes, be sure your bird doesnt have a medical reason for plucking its feathers such as mite infestation, a hormone imbalance or skin infection.

There is something special about this holiday that young and old alike seem to enjoy. Easter is one of the more popular holidays in the year, and many Christians throughout the world who may not normally attend a religious service on a regular basis, usually try to attend some service on Easter Sunday. Christs resurrection, after His dying on the cross, proved that He was God and Savior to the world. His resurrection assures us that we also share in His victory, and that He is coming again to receive all believers unto Himself. Easter baskets, jelly beans, and chocolate eggs are all good and festive ways for us to celebrate this important holiday; however, Christs dying and rising again for our sake is the primary reason for Easter. Our heavenly Father who loves us, gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucied. He is not here; for He has risen... R.S.V.

For more information, call 638-2722 Easter BRIEFS Faith EVENTSBy The Rev. James L. SnyderRecently, I discovered something. The more I tried to keep up with the latest trend, the further behind I get. I am not a complete technical idiot, but Im not too far off. The only thing I can say about me is that I at least try. The best example of all of this has to do with my cellphone. Is there anybody on the planet today that does not have a cellphone? And, the most important question, is there anybody driving a car that is not at the same time on that cellphone? Who in the world are they all talking to? The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage nally convinced me to go into cahoots with her and get cellphones. The plan was this: She got to pick out the cellphones and I got to pay the bill. Consequently, we now are in the cellphone industry. I am not sure it is all working out for the good. At this point, I cannot tell the difference when my cellphone is ringing or when I am receiving a text message. When a text message comes in I try to answer the cellphone and nobody seems to be on the other end. When I try to read the text message there are only letters instead of words. It takes me a half hour just to gure out one text message. Where is James Bond when you need him? I may not be the brightest letter on the keyboard, but I do know how to spell words. It seems that in order to use a cellphone today you have to throw out words and start using letters. I will never get the hang of that. When somebody is on the phone and I am talking, all of a sudden the phone goes dead. I can talk for 3 minutes before realizing nobody is on the other end. I nd this most frustrating. In a crowded restaurant the other day, my cellphone went off. Not thinking too much of my environment I answered the cellphone. It was a friend calling me. The conversation started rather jovial for all practical purposes. Suddenly I became conscious I had an audience. There are times when I really prefer not to have an audience. This was one of those times. I realized some of the people around me were eavesdropping in on my conversation. Then the unthinkable happened. My cellphone suddenly went dead. It went dead in the middle of a rather humorous joke I was telling. Now what was I to do? For a few seconds I was not sure what the proper protocol is when your phone goes dead and you have an audience. I had to do some very quick thinking and come up with, what I thought was, a brilliant plan. I understand that when you do have an audience you have a certain responsibility with that audience. So, not to disappoint my audience, I continued my conversation on the cellphone as though somebody was actually on the other end. I was able to nish my joke and then I paused, not knowing what else to do. I merely continued the conversation I was having with my friend who really was not on the other end of this time. Sometimes it is good just to keep up a good front. From the snickers of the people around me in that restaurant, it was well worth nishing that joke. I hate to waste a good joke. After all, they are so hard to come by these days. Many things are just too good to be true and many of them I probably will never really get the hang of it. One thing I never really will fully understand is Gods love for me. 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 (John 3:16 KJV). Although this sounds too good to be true, it is true nevertheless. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship. Some things seem too good to be true

2 Spring Home and Farm, Washington County News / Holmes County Times-Advertiser, April 4, 2012 BY RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Agriculture is a $100 billion industry in Florida Thats billion with a B, says Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Adam Putnam. Putnam was in Washington County on March 28, visiting local farmers and speaking to an early morning crowd at the Washington County Ag Center. Florida produces 300 different commodities ranging from oysters to timber and pretty much everything in between, Putnam said. The more time I spend in this job, the more I learn that I dont know, Putnam, who took over the state department of agriculture in 2011, said. ridian who grew up in the citrus and cattle industry, Commissioner Putnam understands Floridas generational challenges. In his role as Commissioner of Agriculture, Commissioner Putnam is focused on protecting the quantity and quality of the states water supply, securing a stable, reliable and diverse supply of energy, expanding access to Floridas abundance of fresh produce and fostering tion of Florida agriculture. Putnam said he works to raise awareness of the economic impact of agriculture throughout the state. People in Miami dont really have an idea of what all goes on out here, he said. Generally, people in the city have a good impression of agriculture and our rural communities, but they dont really know what agriculture means to our states economy. Besides being a billion dollar industry, agriculture provides over one million jobs to Floridians, Putnam said. The future of Florida will be delineated by the future of agriculture, he said. In rural communities, it is the taxes on agricultural land and industry that provides the base on which local schools thrive. One of the keys to the success of agriculture in the future will be expanding options for farmers, giving them more ways to use their land. Florida farmers export goods to 120 different countries, Putnam said, and Florida leads the nation in agricultural research and development. An example he cited were winter strawberries which were developed in Dover, Fla. Peaches and blueberries are also relatively new crops for some parts of the state where they are now thriving as crops. These young people, Putnam said, referring to the FFA students who were on hand for the breakfast event, They will be the future of agriculture. The FFA and 4-H students will take agriculture to places we never dreamed of. One program Putnam has been working on is combining local farmers with public schools to provide fresh healthy produce for the school lunches.

Membership doesnt cost, it pays! Eggs are symbolic of Easter. Theyre colored, decorated, hidden, and used in decorative items for the home. The one caveat to eggs is that they are quite fragile, and even hardboiled eggs can be rendered useless with one accidental drop or blow. Instead of relying on breakable eggs for Easter fun, consider making stronger ones instead. Symbolic of rebirth and renewal, eggs are an integral part of setting the scene come early spring. Selecting a less fragile material to create the looks of real eggs can increase the potential for using them in many different applications. One of the easiest ways to create harder-to-break eggs is to make them out of clay. Modeling clay is a versatile medium that can be used to gious items synonymous with Easter. A visit to the local craft store or even a chain retailer will likely turn up different clay products, which come in a variety of colors. You can create pastel-colored clay by mixing in the store. There are two main ways to create egg shapes out of a ball of clay. One way is to roll a ball out of the clay and then roll it vertically between your hands to make the smaller end of the egg. Another is to use a plastic egg as a mold and stuff the clay inside. Pop open the top of the plastic egg and then gently tap the clay out. You dont even have to color your clay if you dont feel up to it. You may also use white clay, allow to dry, and then paint them using acrylic paints. Mix two clay colors together before forming into an egg to achieve a marbled effect. Also think about adding embellishments like stickers, you would decorate real eggs. To display clay eggs in a vase or to attach to a spring before allowing to harden completely. Then attach them as needed. Clay eggs can be used in place of regular eggs in just about every traditional egg use -except of course for making egg salad! Plus, making clay eggs is a fun and safe craft for all ages. Eggs in a Nest Heres a creative way to show off clay eggs. Materials: 2 to 3 eggs depending on size Ribbon Florist wire Decorate with bows made out of ribbon. Place the eggs into the nest and display where desired. Create durable clay eggs instead of using real eggs.New twist on spring and Easter decorating

4 Spring Home and Farm, Washington County News / Holmes County Times-Advertiser, April 4, 2012 Continued From Page 2 school lunch program from the Department of Education to the Department of Agriculture allowed Putnam to match school needs with local farmers production, opening up a new market for local agriculture. He used the example of a strawberry farmer who was having trouble selling his produce due to foreign product coming onto the market early in the season. When the problem came to Putnams attention, his oftact with local schools and get the schools to purchase the berries. Florida schools are serving four million meals a day, Putnam said. We are trying to get away from the days where a tater tot and ketchup were considered starch and a vegetable. Putnam noted that the taxpayer pays for half of those four million meals through the schools free and reduced lunch programs. The taxpayer winds up paying on the front end for meals that arent healthy, then 50 years later the taxpayer picks it up again with medicare and Medicaid health costs for issues that are nutrition related, he said. With the strawberries example, students wound up with food that was two days old and was grown 20 miles away, Putnam said. Were creating a market for Visit from Page 2Washington County residents mingle prior to Commissioner Adam Putnams visit on Wednesday.For decades plywood was the go-to inexpensive wood of choice for many home-repair projects. In manufactured wood product available. Then the term MDF, or medium-density its way onto home-improvement shows and among do-it-yourselfers, making it a popular material in recent years. Still, many people do not know the differences between these types of wood products. Plywood is constructed by gluing several layers of thin wood veneers between two pieces of wood to create a solid sheet. Experts say there is an odd number of veneer layers, and each one is attached at a right angle to the one below to add strength to the plywood. There may be knots or irregularities in the plywood because it is made of actual slices of wood. It comes in a variety of strengths, depending on the thickness of the plywood. Thickness can vary by sheet depending on the manufacturer, so each sheet may not be consistent. MDF is formed with mixed with glue or resin. Under heat or pressure, the MDF is made into a solid material. Because MDF is not made from slices of wood to form veneers, it will not have the traditional graining or knots associated with wood. This can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on how it is ultimately used. MDF is often easy to cut, drill and manipulate because users will not have to work around grain or knots. But users should be careful to drill pilot holes before attaching MDF because it can split. Due to machine creation, MDF is generally uniform in thickness, which makes it consistent for many uses. It is important to note that sanding and cutting of MDF can cause the release of formaldehyde. Safety goggles and a mask are a must when using this product. Plywood is more readily used for walls, ceilings of its strength. MDF is widely relied on for building cabinets, crafts, shelving and trimwork.Plywood and MDF: Whats the dierence?

Last year peanut crops contracted at $550 per ton, but a wholesale failure of peanut crops across the country due to the drought resulted in non-contracted crops selling for as much as $1,000 per ton. I dont think that is going to happen again this year, but I dont think prices are going to be any lower than last year, either, Andreasen said. I think prices are likely to be as good or better. The unseasonable weather has farmers planting crops a bit ahead of schedule, and Andreasen sees no reason not to do so he predicts no further cold snaps this year. The pecan trees are blooming, and when you see that, you know the cold weather is over, he said. You can fool an oak tree, but you cant fool a pecan tree. Cotton and peanuts are major crops for both Washington County and the TriCounty area, but they are not the only crops grown in northwest Florida. Watermelons, grapes, cattle, hay, corn, and Satsumas are all grown in this region, and things are already starting to sprout. We had a grower in here this morning saying his watermelon vines were already two feet long, Andreasen said. Things are growing well ahead of schedule. A lot of melon growers are reporting they already have melons on vines. Tomatoes are already planted, and farmers are prepping the soil for peanut and cotton crops, which cant be planted in cold soil. Millet is never planted before April 15, he explained, due to the soil temperatures. For some crops, it is better to plant them two months late than one month early. Andreasen said cotton and peanuts are the top two crops for the county, but there is plenty of corn and soybeans as well as sorghum and millet grown in the county. The county also has a few dairies, although the family dairy is becoming more and more rare, Andreasen said. When I started with the Extension Service back in 1983, there were 60 dairies in Washington, Holmes and Jackson counties, he said. Now that number is down once was. Some of the few surviving dairies also have land they farm, which helps keep the family business didnt have the luxury of the additional acreage. While Andreasen says there are only a few Satsuma growers in Washington County nowadays, once upon a time the orange-like fruit was a popular crop. Thats the reason Orange Hill Road has that name, and 30s the fruit was bountiful in Washington County. A big freeze caused a decrease in the popularity of Satsumas as a crop in Washington County, and a couple of big freezes in the 80s also damaged the grazing crops business of stockers. Farmers would let other companies cattle graze on their land and get paid at the end of the season based on how much weight the cattle had gained. The freezes in 83 and 85 killed of the feed crops, which meant there was nothing for the cattle to eat. When other peoples cattle is losing weight and starving, and youre responsible, then youre in trouble. Some produce is grown in Washington County and much of it is handled through a local co-op, Andreasen said. Seed corn is also a good crop, with much of it being sold to hunters who use it to feed deer. The deer population in Washington County is one serious problem all farmers have to face, whether they are growing grapes or cabbages. Very few people grow soy beans in the county any more, because the deer will eat them up. Andreasen said he has had reports of as many as 32 deer being spotted in one soy bean 17 or more deer in one In one case, deer even Andreasen noted. They are developing a taste for different things. Since the only natural predator deer have in Washington County are pickup trucks, the population has soared, he said. Deer have also been known to dig up peanut seeds after they have been planted and eat them. Wild hogs can also be a bane of the farmers existence. Andreasen said there are hogs up and down Alligator Creek and Holmes Creek that will do damage One phase of agriculture that many people dont think of as agriculture is the timber business, Andreasen said. There are 291,000 acres of timber in the area, and much of it goes to making pellets at the Green Circle tondale. The pine pellets are shipped to Europe where they are burned as fuel, and the plant itself operates by burning the bark of the trees for fuel, Andreasen said. The facility cost $117 million to build, but the business has done well and more plants are under construction. According to the company website, Green Circle ing and logistics concept provides a superior renewable energy product from both sustainability and net energy gain points of view. represents the largest renewable source for tions of the worlds fossil fuel consumption in the near term, according to the website. ing agricultural factor for Washington County, its that there isnt just one factor. Washington County farmers do it all, and have found ways to survive even as times, and weather, continue to change. We have a strong diversity of agriculture here, Andreasen said.

Nowadays, homeowners looking to sell their homes know its not as easy to do so as it might have been a few years ago. A struggling econofor many homeowners to sell their homes for a price theyre comfortable with. But the sagging economy is not the only to sell a home. In fact, a host of other things, some obvious but some not so obvious, can hurt a homes value as well. Location: A homes location is arguably its best or worst selling point. A home in a great location wont be as difa bad neighborhood. But location goes beyond a neighborhoods reputation, especially in recent years. Homeowners who live in a neighborhood or development with many foreclosures might properties are hurting their own homes value. Lots of foreclosures could negatively affect a neighborhoods reputation, which might make a home within that neighborhood less attractive to prospective buyers. Appearance: A homes appearance is another obvious variable that might affect its resale value. Homeowners might want their home to uality, but thats not going to help when the time comes to sell the home. If the exterior paint is out of the ordinary, then it might be wise to choose a more traditional or conservative color before erecting the For Sale sign out front. The same goes for a homes interior. If the interior design is especially unique, a more traditional interior decor might help the home sell faster. Size and style: Another thing to consider when selling a home is its size and style. A home that stands out on the block might be an attention-grabber, but thats not always attractive to prospective buyers. For instance, a colonial sitting in the middle of a porary homes will stand out, but likely for all the wrong reasons. It will likely appear dated and out of place, which is something buyers might not want. In addition, if the home is considerably larger or smaller than the surrounding homes, then this could hurt its value. Non-conformity: In many ways, conformity is not considered an admirable trait. But when selling a home, conformity could make the difference between a home selling quickly or remaining on the market for months if not years. When shopping for a home, buyers often shop in certain neighborhoods and towns and might see many different homes within a given ZIP code. Homeowners with homes that dont conform to others in the area sell their homes. For instance, homeowners trying to sell a two bedroom home in a neighborhood homes might notice their homes value is not as high as that of surrounding homes, regardless of the neighborhood or how similar the homes exterior is to surrounding homes. Age: Older homes might have character and a sense of nostalgia, but appraisers take age into consideration when determining a homes value. And buyers tend to lean toward newer homes for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the feeling that newer homes have far more modern amenities than older homes. When it comes to a homes value, there are a host of things that could ultimately increase or decrease that value in the eyes of prospective buyers.Factors that might hurt a homes value Perfect Pool Supplies 122 S.

Many problems are bound to occur sooner or later, but there are a few that diligent homeowners can prevent. One of those preventable problems is flooding. Any home with floor drains or plumbing fixtures below street level can flood, and this can be due to inclement weather, such as heavy rainstorms, local sewer system backup, or groundwater swelling. Flooding can even occur in the spring when melting occurs as the air temperature increases. While homeowners wont be able to control the weather, they can take steps to floodproof their home. Do some preventive landscaping. If the ground around the homes foundation slopes toward the house, make some grading changes so that the ground slopes away from the home. Insulate the heating ducts. Some home heating ducts are under the basement floor. In such homes, homeowners should make sure these ducts are properly insulated and watertight. Make sure the vents all lead outside the home. The weather can cause moisture issues, but some moisture problems can come from inside the home as well. Clothes dryers and bathrooms are both internal moisture sources, and these sources should always be vented outside the home. Clean gutters and downspouts. Gutters and downspouts should be cleaned to ensure water is effectively being diverted away from the home. Clean gutters and downspouts in the spring after a long winter, and do so again in the fall to keep fallen leaves from blocking the flow of water. Downspouts should extend four feet from the outside wall of the house. Inspect the home at least once a year. Before buying a home, buyers often hire a professional inspector to ensure the home is safe and sound. But the inspections should not stop once buyers sign on the dotted line. To prevent flooding, homeowners should inspect their homes foundation for cracks once a year. If the home has a chimney and fireplace, check for cracks there as well. If any cracks are discovered, consult a professional immediately. Clean out basement drains. Basement drains should be cleaned annually from the house to the street. If the drains are still slow after cleaning, then clean them more than once a year. When leaving the home for an extended period of time, turn the water valve off. Homeowners worried about flooding can calm those fears when going on vacation or another long trip by turn the water valve off at the source. This ensures that, should a line break while no one is home, water will not pump into the house. Floodproofing a home can save homeowners from potentially costly repairs and unsightly damage to a homes interior.How to oodproof your home Cleaning gutters and downspouts is one way to prevent homes from ooding.

8 Spring Home and Farm, Washington County News / Holmes County Times-Advertiser, April 4, 2012 BY CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.comBONIFAY Looking forward to what the conditions are going to be like this year, said UF/IFAS Holmes County Extension Director Shep Eubanks, youd have to look back to the previous year. For 2012 we are facing similar conditions to 2011 for crop production, said Eubanks. We are still in a La Nina phase regarding weather. La Nina tends to produce warmer than normal and drier than normal weather conditions. In 2011, the agricultural crops turned out very well considering the adverse weather conditions that we faced during the spring and early summer, said Eubanks. Prices for crops like peanuts and cotton were at record highs and timely rains resulted in very good cotton yields, and peanut yields were above county historical averages, said Eubanks. Soybean yields were average to above average. Field corn yields were very poor across Holmes County as most acres were not irrigated and the drought conditions caused severe losses. Eubanks said that the La Nina is expected to weaken as we head into early summer, which, hes hoping, will provide for good growing conditions. Commodity price outlooks are very good this year for both peanuts and cotton, he said, and irrigated corn also is very promising as well. We continue to adjust to the increase in troublesome weeds like palmer amaranth in agronomic crops, said Eubanks. Cogongrass is also an invasive weed that is making rapid inroads in Holmes County and is a weed that both farmers and landowners need to take seriously and eradicate if they He also said that cattle very good for the next year or more as cow herd numbers continue to shrink nationwide and prices are expected to remain strong for the next couple of years. For more information contact Shep Eubanks, County Extension Director, UF/IFAS Holmes County Extension Service at 850547-1108.Holmes County ag forecast: About same as last year Morning fog envelopes farm machinery on March 30. Storage space is often a coveted commodity. The purchase of a storage shed could alleviate some clutter issues and move items outdoors -creating more space. Garden storage sheds present another place where individuals can keep items out of sight but easily accesbelongings quite quickly, many homeowners think about a shed purchase to at least keep outdoor lawn and garden essentials in their own place. The process of purchasing a shed is not as simple expensive type on the market. There are other factors that come into play when selecting a shed. Appearance and design: Although the function of a shed is to store items out of sight, the shed itself will be in full view in a yard. Therefore, plenty of homeowners prefer something that has just as much aesthetic appeal as it does storage capacity. An unsightly shed can affect the overall appearance of a property, or even hurt the sale price for homeowners thinking about putting the home on the market. Its important to select a shed in a price range that also complements the style of he home so it coordinates with other features. Some people choose to have a custom-built shed that can replicate the architectural style of the home and even features the same siding and Size: Sheds come in a variety of sizes, from compact locker-sized sheds to large buildings that may even double as a garden room, pool room or kids playhouse. Homeowners should keep in mind that the size of the shed may have to meet local municipality rules for additions or structural changes to a property. A larger shed may material, such as concrete, and may be subject to permit applications and inspections, whereas a smaller shed may not have such stringent requirements. Furthermore, certain towns actually may restrict the size and placement of a shed if it interferes with neighbor in a negative way. Siding materials: Sheds are constructed of various exterior materials. Some of the more affordable options are metal or plywood and particle board. However, these materials can be easily compromised by rain and snow. The most maintenance-free materials are vinyl or molded PVC-type plastics. However, these may look like cookiecutout units and may not have as much visual appeal. Cedar and wood are popular siding choices but wont be maintenance-free.

Local Washington County News | A3 Wednesday, April 4, 2012 During the last two years, we have worked tirelessly to analyze, com pare and revise the written policies of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce to ensure we are serving our community with un matched professionalism in all areas. This will be come the foundation for ac quiring accreditation in the future, he said. Haddock has served the citizens of Washington County in the eld of law enforcement for 33 years. Of those 33 years, seven have been served as sher iff; 14 were served as in vestigator for the Ofce of the State Attorney, serving both Washington and Holm es counties; 11 years were served with the Washing ton County Sheriffs Ofce; and one year was served with the Chipley Police De partment, according to the news release. Additionally, Haddocks law enforcement career in cludes more than 28 years served as a major crimes investigator and 30 years as a certied criminal jus tice instructor, teaching law enforcement and cor rections students at both Washington-Holmes Tech nical Center and Chipola College in the areas of pa trol techniques, investiga tion techniques and high liability areas including rearms and pursuit/tacti cal driving. Throughout his career, Haddock has completed a wide variety of in-depth training that includes the following certied training: basic law enforcement; of cer eld training; injury and death investigation; child abuse, neglect and sexual battery investigation; nar cotics identication and investigation; and multijurisdictional counterdrug task force training. Professional achieve ments have included the distinguished Ofcer of the Year Award, Washington County Leadership Char ter Class, the distinguished United States Marshal Ser vice for Fugitive Missions Award and being elected to the Florida Sheriffs Asso ciation Board of Directors. Raised in the Bonnett Pond area, Haddock is the son of Clifton and Shelby Haddock and the grandson of the late Jack and Annie Bell Haddock and the late Lester and Ruth Anderson. Haddock is a seventh-gen eration Washington Coun ty resident. He resides in Chipley with his wife, Laura. They are parents to daughters Amy Thorn ton and Mauri Myers, and grandparents to Morgan and Peyton Myers. He has a brother, Mark Haddock, and two sisters, Norma Scurlock and Violet Whit man. Haddock is a 1975 graduate of Vernon High School. I am honored to have served Washington Coun ty as sheriff for the last seven years. Together, we have worked to identify issues that needed to be addressed in Washington County, Haddock said in the news release. Over the last seven years, we have made a pro gressive, responsive and a highly developed sheriffs ofce a priority. Our com munity as a whole is ex periencing the struggle between rapid growth and dwindling budgets. While this was true during my rst term, it has never been as critical to do more with less than in the cur rent economic climate. I will continue, as I have for seven years, to be proac tive in nding long-term so lutions for our countys law enforcement needs such as actively pursuing additional grant funding and aggres sively initiating programs that result in increased services to Washington County. As sheriff, basic adequate service is not an option. Skilled, proactive, well-organized and inno vative policing instead will continue to be the standard at the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce, he said. We cannot afford the luxury of time for new lead ers to become acclimated to the demands that face law enforcement in our county. Experience is not only important, but more than ever, it is essential in ensuring our department stays on course, while pro viding resourceful and pro fessional law enforcement services, Haddock said. Since the day I as sumed the ofce of sheriff, I have set clear goals such as the safety of our chil dren, the elimination of il legal drugs, education and crime prevention among our senior residents and improved accessibility of law enforcement services to all residents. The sher iffs ofce has made steps towards meeting these goals, Haddock said, cit ing school safety and DUI prevention presentations, expansion of the Explorer program, the anonymous reporting of crime pro gram Tip411, Communities Against Senior Exploitation presentations, introduction of the Public Service Of cer program and the pub lished monthly fraud and crime prevention alerts as examples. As a rural agency, we must utilize every tool made available to us to provide expansive, state of the art law enforcement services to our community. This is why I have brought in nationally recognized presenters and made ad vanced training available to local law enforcement of cers here in our own county. We have sought, applied for, and been awarded, grant funding to consistently wid en the reach of the Wash ington County Drug Task Force through high-tech surveillance equipment and funding for dedicated narcotics ofcers. In addition, I have made cultivating partner ships with state and federal agencies a priority through the consistent collaboration of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investi gation), FDLE (Florida De partment of Law Enforce ment), the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, and ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) on numerous cases such as the recent identication and subse quent takedown of the Gulf Cartel on federal narcotics charges, and the search and recovery of Baby Shan non, Haddock said. I am committed to the success of Washington County not only as your sheriff, but as a fellow mem ber of your community. If re-elected, I will continue to work diligently as a dedi cated servant to all the peo ple of Washington County, Haddock said.

WANT MORE? Find us online at chipleypaper.com friend us on Facebook or tweet us @WCN_HCT Dear Editor, I would like to make some comments on last weeks article about the beatings our students get in our school system (NPR comments on spanking in schools, March 28 Page A4). I too heard the NPR broadcast and was appalled that they zeroed in on Holmes County. Seems that our schools have nally got bad enough to attract national attention. A little over a decade ago, scientists who were researching the effect these beatings have on children discovered that they caused a physical brain damage so severe that it could be seen with an MRI brain scan, it was severe, and it was permanent, caused by abuse and terror. Our military now recognizes this brain damage in adult soldiers and calls it post traumatic stress disorder, now commonly referred to as PTSD, caused by the terror of battle. My own memories of this when I was in school tend to verify this. In my second grade, at least half of our class was beaten every day. Out of a class of 64, we graduated 16, and I feel sure these daily beatings had a great effect on this statistic. Beatings do tend to quell childrens activities, and it is not from learning their lesson they have been turned into zombies, or conservatives in our everyday language, peaceful, unintrusive, obedient, unambitious and compliant because they have lost the ability to be any of the rambunctious things that they were before the beatings, with a brain that has lost much of its functionality and ability for independent and original thought. Coincidentally (or not), this does seem to parallel our countys economic and social fortunes. Perhaps we should look at the way we treat our children to see why we are so backwards here. I was fortunate that my parents made the effort necessary to protect me from the beatings my fellow students were getting in school. They never beat me nor allowed anyone else to, and I bene ted greatly from it all of my life. Charles W. Smith Bonifay If you happened to read my column last week, you heard about the ice storm of 2010 that shut down most of northwest Arkansas for a couple of weeks. I have since been told by Floridians that, minus the ice and freezing temperatures, I had pretty much described a hurricane. And I imagine one bad storm is pretty much the same as the other, unless youre talking about tornadoes or tsunamis. And again as I am writing, there is a tornado warning in the news. Today its for Bay County. Thankfully nothing has come of it. I have had some close encounters with tornadoes though, so that brings us to this weeks topic. You might remember, what got me on the weather kick was Holmes County of cials and their effort to adopt the DeltAlert electronic warning system. The DeltAlert coalition went to the Board of County Commissioners last Tuesday, and the commissioners wanted more information before committing to helping purchase the warning system. Back in that alternate Washington County I used to live in, the city of Prairie Grove looked into a similar warning system, one which sends out emails, texts and phone calls to warn of bad weather, after they determined that replacing the citys tornado warning sirens was going to cost a lot of money, and that even with the best sirens, anyone who didnt live immediately around the sirens most likely would never hear them. Sirens werent really designed to be heard inside houses, especially well-insulated houses. Add your TV, stereo or mp3 player complete with headphones, and you probably arent going to know the sirens going off. To avoid spending money on a system most people either wouldnt hear, the city interviewed and ultimately bought into the CodeRed system. Within a few months, both surrounding towns, Farmington, Ark., and Lincoln, Ark., also were shopping for the system. This was all in 2010. At the end of 2010, the city council of Lincoln had also bought into the system and was in the process of setting up the database for notifying residents of severe weather. The on Jan. 1, 2011, it happened. Just before dawn on New Years Day, a EF-3 tornado struck the small community of Cincinnati, Ark., and killed four people. Cincinnati is about 10 miles west of Lincoln. Several homes and the towns re department were destroyed. Several letters and photographs from Cincinnati were found in Benton County, 35 miles away, in the cow pasture of my friend Kent Marts. The storms also hit Benton County and were part of a 27-hour tornado outbreak that killed 9 and spawned 36 con rmed tornadoes in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Louisiana and Mississippi. Cincinnati had no sirens, and there was very little warning for the small community. Just weeks earlier, the city of Lincoln had been discussing putting Cincinnati in their CodeRed program. Then the tornado struck. As bad as Cincinnatis disaster, however, the EF-5 multiple vortex tornado that destroyed Joplin, Mo., on May 22, 2011, made Cincinnatis carnage pale in comparison. That Sunday the same storm system came through Tulsa, Okla., en route to destroying Joplin. Shannon and I were in Akins Natural Foods at 31st and Harvard when the clerk came up to us and said there were tornadoes on the ground in west Tulsa and we should go home immediately and seek shelter. Since we were about 100 miles from home, we decided to run back to the hills. Listening to the radio as we drove east down U.S. 412, we heard the weather reports as funnel clouds traveled over south Harvard Avenue where we had just been 20 minutes earlier. Much of Joplin was destroyed, and 160 people died in that storm. Damage was estimated at $2.8 billion. Spencer Tirey, the photo editor for Northwest Arkansas Newspapers, was in Joplin that evening visiting his girlfriend who lived there. Her home, just outside of town, was unmolested, but when they heard the reports of damage, they went back into the city to help. Spencer wound up spending the night helping pull bodies from rubble, and he wrote a harrowing essay about his experiences. He had driven down one of the main roads of the city with the storm literally in his rearview mirror, but he hadnt recognized it for what it was a tornado so massive the sides of it couldnt be seen. The path of the storm was a mile wide in some parts. Whats the point? In Farmington, Ark., they had implemented the CodeRed program by the time the tornado struck Cincinnati. The CodeRed emergency noti cation system sent out more than 1,000 calls starting at 5:56 a.m. Friday to alert Farmington and Prairie Grove residents that they were in the path of a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service out of Tulsa, Okla, we reported in the Washington County Enterprise-Leader the Wednesday following the weekend tornado. This was the rst major storm since both communities signed on with the communication system. Jill Mason, Arkansas account representative for Code Red, said residents registered with the weather system receive calls only if they are located within the direct path of a storm or live within a polygon that shows the potential direction of the storm. Would CodeRed have saved lives in Cincinnati, or Joplin, if it had been available? Well never know. But I do know of some city of cials in Lincoln who wish they could have gotten the system in place just a little bit quicker.

After submitting the narrative on tailor-made cigarettes, the thought came to me in the middle of the night that the adjective describing the cigar smoker was used incorrectly. When the article was printed, the sad truth confronted me the word that should have been af uent, which Webster described as Rich; wealthy; opulent and the intended description of cigar smokers, came out ef uent, with a dictionary meaning of the liquid out ow of a sewer. My quick-witted friend Dr. Robert Snare, with his good sense of humor, jokingly told me, Judge, after reading your article, I now know why my cigars have been tasting different lately. I immediately got the message as we both had a good laugh from the prattlers gaffe. His further comment: At least you know that your column is being read. Faithful reader Odell Ward called to report his enjoyment of the smoking article and was kind enough not to mention the misused word. He did add Country Gentlemen smoking tobacco and Chester eld ready rolled cigarettes to the list that he smoked in his beginning years. He further told me, Perry, I put em down on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated after becoming fully convinced of their health hazards. The subject of railroads always catches the attention of friend Randall Roberts, whose brother John L. Roberts of Bonifay joined him as a railroad buff. John L. (Buddy) Roberts Jr., now residing in Elberton, Ga., is carrying on the tradition of exploring trains and rail lines as a hobby. It was my privilege to furnish information to him on the old B. C. Line that ran from Columbus to Southport in the 1930s. Randall recently responded to the article prompted by reader Vernon Lewis in Virginia that mentioned sharecropping trains and guitar picking and singing in local joints, all of which is of keen interest to my Bonifay native friend. The near accident recalled by Lewis was pinpointed by Randall Roberts as having been the passenger train traveling east, which would have stopped in Bonifay at 9:30 a.m. In those days, people could, and did, set their clocks by that train.

This train ran regularly from Pensacola to River Junction. The freight engines carried a four-number designation, while the passenger engines only had three, with the numbers re ecting the power and speed of a particular series of locomotives, Roberts said. He remembers an incident during World War II when No. 152 had a tire come off between Bonifay and Chipley. The tire is a steel ring heated on the drive wheel. The engine was dragged to the old Colomba Cucumber Shed near the Jim Chance home in Bonifay, where the section crew, consisting of seven men, lifted the tire, disconnected the drive rods and the engine was pulled to Pensacola for repairs. He reports that engines regularly stopped for coal and water in Chipley, where there was also a Wye, or Y for the train to turn around. Randall relates another train story when the The Gulf Wind, now called the Sunset Limited, broke down in Chipley while Ira Hewitt was employed at the Bonifay Depot. He and I traveled to Chipley to observe the action. The engine was jacked up with the engineer pounding underneath. After the train started rolling, my friend and I drove U.S. 90, along beside the tracks all the way westward to Wilcox Crossing, where we gave up the chase as the vehicle had reached speeds estimated at 80 miles per hour, reports the train enthusiast. On a personal note, Randall recalls when his aunt, Chrissie Miller (owner and operator of the Eureka Hotel in Bonifay), was brought home from a Jacksonville hospital by the train, arriving in Bonifay in the early evening. She was con ned to a stretcher, and the train made a special stop at Waukesha Street crossing, removed a window and passed the stretcher to an awaiting ambulance and the train proceeding on. Ive never heard of read of such a thing happening except when President Franklin D. Roosevelt died in Warm Springs, Ga. His body was placed on a funeral train for transporting to the nations capitol, concludes my friend. Commenting on the recent article of Greyhound driver, Conrad Futch, Randall Roberts remind me, Perry, I followed Greyhound history just about as much as trains. He mentioned that he recalls Greyhound driver Watkins, along with two others, Fritz Otto and a Mr. Mothershed, and remembered the descriptive adjectives, CourteousFriendly-Helpful appearing on the nameplate of the drivers name, attached just over the steering wheel. Reminiscing further, Randall mentioned that truck lines have replaced the hauling of freight once handled by rail. UPS and FedEx replaced Railway Express in addition to the small freight package once brought to the outlying areas by Greyhound and Trailways Bus. Our sophisticated electronic age has almost eliminated Western Union once relied upon heavily for urgent and important messages. My hosts of readers are assisting in keeping me overrated these days as a historian and genealogist, and I am enjoying every minute of it. See you all next week with another subject, which I wont reveal at this time.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com Hook harvest SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM This is the rst deer killed by 15-year-old Jacob Burnham. He was killed at 5:15 p.m. Feb. 1 on private property while hunting with his grandfather, Daniel Smith. Beginning today, there will be grouper on the spit for shermen in the Gulf waters of Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin counties. The state has come to an agreement with these counties for an early grouper season for 2012 only. The regional season will end June 30. The season also includes all the waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all the waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters (from shore to nine miles out) off these four counties may not be brought ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. Overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties, because it is the least densely populated region of the Floridas Gulf Coast. Providing this spring season will balance the economic and social needs of this region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In Gulf of Mexico federal waters (beyond 9 miles) and in the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Oct. 31. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not be open during the July-throughOctober season, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits remain at 22 inches and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

COOL CATS Craigcat: A small boat with big potential By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Theres a new ride in the area. It has pontoons and a motor, but its not a pontoon boat. Its a Craigcat. The 11-foot-long two-seater boat can scoot across the water at 40 mph. But the biggest advantage of the small boat is the safety factor, said Capt. Bill McDonald of the Mindy Lou II. McDonald, who has been chartering for 35 years, is stepping out into the Craigcat venture along with wife Sheri, and children Sarah Hoffman and Thomas McDonald. The boats are for rent under A-1 Charters and they can also be purchased. They have the best safety record for any small water craft, Bill said. Theyre unsinkable with the stick steering, Sheri said. You cant really give it enough throttle to ip it. In addition to being very safe, they have the best environmental record, Bill said. Environmentally it leaves no footprint. When the boat is running on top, it leaves no wake. The boats have 4-stroke motors and are energy-ef cient. You dont have exhaust to deal with, Sheri said. Theyre awesome and very light weight. The heaviest thing about them is the motor. With the motor, the boat weighs 550 pounds and can carry two passengers along with a small cooler and whatever else you might like to take along within the 600-pound limit. They are considered a power boat or a personal watercraft, Sarah said. The boat takes six gallons of gas and should be good for eight hours of fun on the water. The rst time I went out on it, it was a little intimidating, Sarah said. I felt like I was in a mini-pontoon boat. But Ive had a blast every time Ive gone out. All Craigcats have a dry storage area behind the seats, and an area up front to put a cooler or tackle box. They all have a radio and MP3 music capability and small Bimini tops to get out from under the sun. Each boat has a splashguard across the front. Its very user friendly, Sheri said. The McDonalds and A-1 Charters have the dealership for all of Northwest Florida for Craigcats. Right now they have six for rent and hope to soon have a eet of 10. However, if someone would like to buy one, We can always have one in about a week and you can customize them, Sheri said, such as changing the color of the Bimini or out tting it for shing. To catch a ride on a Craigcat, call 837-1790. Photos by MARGUERITE PARKER | Special to Florida Freedom Newspapers Capt. Bill McDonald helps his wife Sheri and Marguerite Parker off the boat after a test ride Thursday morning. At top, Thomas McDonald has one of the catch-it Craigcats out tted for shing, complete with rocket launchers for rods, trolling motor and wings for his buckets or tackle box. Sheri McDonald and friend Marguerite Parker take one of the Craigcats out for a ride. The small boats can be rented by the hour, half-day or day at A-1 Charters behind the old Electric Cowboy on U.S. 98 in Destin.

H O SPITALITY S P O NS O R By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Was Ryan Newman lucky or was he lucky at Martinsville? Well, he pulled off his rst win of the season and his rst ever win at Martinsville after Jeff Gordon ran out of gas and Jimmie Johnson was involved in an accident with Clint Bowyer in turn one. Gordon led the most laps at Martinsville, but Newman took advantage of Gordon running out of gas and in the frontstretch inched out ahead of A.J. Allmendinger for the win. David Reutimann had a bad day. What do they say, if it can go wrong it will? Well it did for Reutimann, and what ended his day on the track wasnt some horri c accident or someone spinning him out by getting a little to close his car simply stalled on the track. The accident that took out Jimmie Johnson happened when Bowyer barreled in to turn one and caught Johnsons bumper, sending Johnson into a spin and leaving him unable to nish the race. Kevin Harvick took the win in the Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville. Harvick had a real good day. Not only did he lead all the laps except for two, he also started in the pole position. Harvick now holds a series record after leading 248 laps. This was also Harvicks third win in the last four years. With Harvick winning the Kroger 500, the win also was the rst win for team owner Richard Childress. There were only seven cautions in the Sprint Cup race. Caution one came on lap 97 when Kyle Busch spun out between turns three and four. Caution two came when Dave Blaney was involved in an accident in turn two. Juan Montoya spun out in lap 263 for the third caution. The fourth caution came when Kasey Kahne blew his engine on the backstretch. On lap 361, Travis Kvapil spun out in turn two for the fth caution of the race. The sixth caution came on lap 496 when Reutimanns car stalled on the track. The seventh and most exciting caution of the race was when Bowyer barreled into turn one and clipped Jimmie Johnson, which sent Johnson into a spin. There are no races scheduled for this weekend because of the Easter holiday. Results from Martinsville Goodys Fast Relief 500 (Sprint Cup) 1. Ryan Newman 2. A. J. Allmendinger 3.

Railroad Ave. By RANDAL YAKEY 522-5108 | @ryakey ryakey@pcnh.com MARIANNA A soft rain pelted the tent under which the family of U.S. Army Specialist Daquane Demetrius Rivers gathered at a cemetery to say their nal goodbyes on Saturday. After a 21-gun salute and taps were played, U.S. Army pallbearers presented American ags to Rivers wife, Natalie Rivers, and his mother, Barbara Ann Rivers, while mourners gathered around the family. A trains horn sounded off across a grove of trees inside the Orange Hill Cemetery as nal prayers were said. Spc. Rivers, 21, died in a noncombat incident March 14 in Paktika province of Afghanistan, according to the Department of Defense. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 172nd Infantry Brigade, Grafenwoehr, Germany, and was in Afghanistan supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, according to the Department of Defense. Earlier Saturday, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. James Thomas spoke to a couple of hundred mourners at the Marianna High School auditorium. Specialist Rivers signed up knowing we were in a long war against terrorists, Thomas told the gathering. Specialist Rivers stood between the extremists and the possibility of freedom for Afghanistan. He stared down the Taliban. At one point in the ceremony, presiding minister Janet Jackson read a statement prepared by Rivers mother. He had a way of winning you over, Jackson said from the podium. He was charming. He was courteous, he was respectful. He was just a joy. He was a great leader, a loving husband and an awesome friend. As Jackson read the statement, ushers passed out tissues for mourners shedding tears. He will forever stay in our minds and hearts, Jackson read. He will be truly missed especially by me, Mom. Outside the auditorium, Angie McNealy, a cousin of Rivers from his father, Reginald McNealys, side of the family, spoke glowingly of Rivers. He was a fun person, McNealy said. Hed make you laugh if you were going through anything. He knew all the right things to say and do. The Rev. Rueben Merritt said he watched Rivers grow up playing in the neighborhood near his grandmothers house. He was always joyful and laughing with a beautiful smile, Merritt said. Whenever you had seen him, you had seen joy. After the ceremony at the auditorium, Wilburn Jones, 22, walked slowly out of the auditorium past the line of military personnel. He was a classmate of Rivers. He was very kindly, kind-hearted, said Jones, his eyes xated someplace else. He was a good friend. Jones turned and walked away, disappearing into the crowd headed for the cemetery. Back at the gravesite, mother and wife sat quietly, weeping, as the graveside ceremony came to a close. A few mourners walked past the soldiers silver casket, touching the top where a single red carnation was laid.

We really want to thank our sponsors for helping make this event a reality, Prather said. Washington County Teen Court is an alternative, voluntary program offering young offenders an opportunity to make restitution for an offense through community service, specialized classes and jury service, thus avoiding nes and keeping the juveniles record clear, according to the programs website. By bringing the teens before a jury of their peers, which sentences them to constructive service in a community service organization and jury duty, this program seeks to deter teens from future unlawful behavior, while providing direct experience in the judiciary system and an understanding of their future role as a productive citizen, the website states. The goals of the program include holding juvenile offenders responsible for their behavior and helping them recognize that the consequences are a direct result of their own actions.

Little Blessings Academy takes trip Chipley High school: Disney for Disney SPECIAL TO EXTRA Children from the Little Blessings Academy visited Partners for Pets on March 28 in Marianna. Nail-biting, gum smacking, knuckle popping they can be irritating habits people have. Even birds display their share of odd behaviors. Feather plucking is a common habit among parrot-type birds, says Dr. Alice Blue-McLendon, a veterinarian with the Winnie Carter Wildlife Center at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. While most adult birds lose their feathers naturally once or twice a year in a process called molting, it is not natural for a bird to pluck out its own feathers, says Blue-McLendon. One of the clues that a bird is plucking its feathers is to look at the birds head. Since a parrot cannot pluck feathers from its own scalp, a feather-plucking bird will have a full head of feathers but be missing a lot of feathers on other parts of its body. As simple as it may sound, the most common reason for a bird to pluck out its own feathers is boredom, says Blue-McLendon. When a bird isnt stimulated by its environment, it may begin plucking its feathers for entertainment or out of frustration, she says. Because of birds high intelligence level, environmental enrichment is extremely important for them, Blue-McLendon notes. They need plenty of toys to play with, especially ones they can chew. The more time they spend chewing on toys and food, the less time they have to chew on their feathers, she adds. Playing with loose feathers may spawn a nasty plucking habit. You dont want to encourage your bird to pluck its feathers out to have something to play with, Blue-McLendon says. Remove the feathers from the cage as soon as they fall out. Excessive grooming, or preening as it is known in the avian arena, is also not an appropriate pastime for birds. You should curb this behavior early, says Blue-McLendon. Preening can be another common precursor to feather plucking. She says its important to try to break any bad habits as soon as you notice them. Temporarily changing your birds environment is a good start, BlueMcLendon explains. Try adding new toys to its cage or simply rearranging its existing toys. Also, consider moving its cage to another area of the house, possibly one with heavier traf c. If your birds meals consist of only seeds, try to incorporate new foods and avors into its diet, says Blue-McLendon. However, know that change is not always the best remedy. Sometimes variation, especially sudden and dramatic variation, in a birds environment can also lead to feather plucking, says Blue-McLendon. Also, before you make any changes, be sure your bird doesnt have a medical reason for plucking its feathers such as mite infestation, a hormone imbalance or skin infection.

This Message Courtesy of Easter Easter is a special Christian holiday commemo rating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There is something special about this holiday that young and old alike seem to enjoy. Easter is one of the more popular holidays in the year, and many Christians throughout the world who may not normally attend a religious service on a regular basis, usu ally try to attend some service on Easter Sunday. Christs resur rection, after His dying on the cross, proved that He was God and Savior to the world. His resurrection assures us that we also share in His victory, and that He is coming again to receive all believ ers unto Himself. Easter baskets, jelly beans, and chocolate eggs are all good and festive ways for us to celebrate this important holiday; however, Christs dying and rising again for our sake is the primary reason for Easter. Our heavenly Father who loves us, gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life. But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was cruci ed. He is not here; for He has risen... R.S.V.

For more information, call 638-2722 Easter BRIEFS Faith EVENTS By The Rev. James L. Snyder Recently, I discovered something. The more I tried to keep up with the latest trend, the further behind I get. I am not a complete technical idiot, but Im not too far off. The only thing I can say about me is that I at least try. The best example of all of this has to do with my cellphone. Is there anybody on the planet today that does not have a cellphone? And, the most important question, is there anybody driving a car that is not at the same time on that cellphone? Who in the world are they all talking to? The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage nally convinced me to go into cahoots with her and get cellphones. The plan was this: She got to pick out the cellphones and I got to pay the bill. Consequently, we now are in the cellphone industry. I am not sure it is all working out for the good. At this point, I cannot tell the difference when my cellphone is ringing or when I am receiving a text message. When a text message comes in I try to answer the cellphone and nobody seems to be on the other end. When I try to read the text message there are only letters instead of words. It takes me a half hour just to gure out one text message. Where is James Bond when you need him? I may not be the brightest letter on the keyboard, but I do know how to spell words. It seems that in order to use a cellphone today you have to throw out words and start using letters. I will never get the hang of that. When somebody is on the phone and I am talking, all of a sudden the phone goes dead. I can talk for 3 minutes before realizing nobody is on the other end. I nd this most frustrating. In a crowded restaurant the other day, my cellphone went off. Not thinking too much of my environment I answered the cellphone. It was a friend calling me. The conversation started rather jovial for all practical purposes. Suddenly I became conscious I had an audience. There are times when I really prefer not to have an audience. This was one of those times. I realized some of the people around me were eavesdropping in on my conversation. Then the unthinkable happened. My cellphone suddenly went dead. It went dead in the middle of a rather humorous joke I was telling. Now what was I to do? For a few seconds I was not sure what the proper protocol is when your phone goes dead and you have an audience. I had to do some very quick thinking and come up with, what I thought was, a brilliant plan. I understand that when you do have an audience you have a certain responsibility with that audience. So, not to disappoint my audience, I continued my conversation on the cellphone as though somebody was actually on the other end. I was able to nish my joke and then I paused, not knowing what else to do. I merely continued the conversation I was having with my friend who really was not on the other end of this time. Sometimes it is good just to keep up a good front. From the snickers of the people around me in that restaurant, it was well worth nishing that joke. I hate to waste a good joke. After all, they are so hard to come by these days. Many things are just too good to be true and many of them I probably will never really get the hang of it. One thing I never really will fully understand is Gods love for me. 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 (John 3:16 KJV). Although this sounds too good to be true, it is true nevertheless. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship. Some things seem too good to be true

2 Spring Home and Farm, Washington County News / Holmes County Times-Advertiser, April 4, 2012 BY RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Agriculture is a $100 billion industry in Florida Thats billion with a B, says Commis sioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Adam Putnam. Putnam was in Washing ton County on March 28, visiting local farmers and speaking to an early morn ing crowd at the Washing ton County Ag Center. Florida produces 300 different commodities rang ing from oysters to timber and pretty much everything in between, Putnam said. The more time I spend in this job, the more I learn that I dont know, Putnam, who took over the state department of agriculture in 2011, said. ridian who grew up in the citrus and cattle industry, Commissioner Putnam understands Floridas generational challenges. In his role as Commissioner of Agriculture, Commis sioner Putnam is focused on protecting the quantity and quality of the states water supply, securing a stable, reliable and diverse supply of energy, expanding access to Floridas abundance of fresh produce and fostering tion of Florida agriculture. Putnam said he works to raise awareness of the economic impact of agri culture throughout the state. People in Miami dont re ally have an idea of what all goes on out here, he said. Generally, people in the city have a good impression of agriculture and our rural communities, but they dont really know what agricul ture means to our states economy. Besides being a billion dollar industry, agriculture provides over one million jobs to Floridians, Putnam said. The future of Florida will be delineated by the future of agriculture, he said. In rural communities, it is the taxes on agricul tural land and industry that provides the base on which local schools thrive. One of the keys to the success of agriculture in the future will be expanding options for farmers, giving them more ways to use their land. Florida farmers export goods to 120 different countries, Putnam said, and Florida leads the nation in agricultural research and development. An ex ample he cited were winter strawberries which were developed in Dover, Fla. Peaches and blueberries are also relatively new crops for some parts of the state where they are now thriving as crops. These young people, Putnam said, referring to the FFA students who were on hand for the breakfast event, They will be the future of agriculture. The FFA and 4-H students will take agriculture to places we never dreamed of. One program Putnam has been working on is combining local farmers with public schools to pro vide fresh healthy produce for the school lunches.

The one caveat to eggs is that they are quite fragile, and even hardboiled eggs can be rendered useless with one accidental drop or blow. Instead of relying on breakable eggs for Easter fun, consider making stronger ones instead. Symbolic of rebirth and renewal, eggs are an integral part of setting the scene come early spring. Selecting a less fragile material to create the looks of real eggs can increase the potential for using them in many different applications. One of the easiest ways to create harder-to-break eggs is to make them out of clay. Modeling clay is a versatile medium that can be used to gious items synonymous with Easter. A visit to the local craft store or even a chain retailer will likely turn up different clay products, which come in a variety of colors. You can create pastel-colored clay by mixing in the store. There are two main ways to create egg shapes out of a ball of clay. One way is to roll a ball out of the clay and then roll it vertically between your hands to make the smaller end of the egg. Another is to use a plastic egg as a mold and stuff the clay inside. Pop open the top of the plastic egg and then gently tap the clay out. You dont even have to color your clay if you dont feel up to it. You may also use white clay, allow to dry, and then paint them using acrylic paints. Mix two clay colors together before forming into an egg to achieve a marbled effect. Also think about adding embellishments like stickers, you would decorate real eggs. To display clay eggs in a vase or to attach to a spring before allowing to harden completely. Then attach them as needed. Clay eggs can be used in place of regular eggs in just about every traditional egg use -except of course for making egg salad! Plus, making clay eggs is a fun and safe craft for all ages. Eggs in a Nest Heres a creative way to show off clay eggs. Materials: 2 to 3 eggs depending on size Ribbon Florist wire Decorate with bows made out of ribbon. Place the eggs into the nest and display where desired. Create durable clay eggs instead of using real eggs. New twist on spring and Easter decorating

He used the example of a strawberry farmer who was having trouble selling his produce due to foreign product coming onto the market early in the season. When the problem came to Putnams attention, his of tact with local schools and get the schools to purchase the berries. Florida schools are serving four million meals a day, Putnam said. We are trying to get away from the days where a tater tot and ketchup were considered starch and a vegetable. Putnam noted that the taxpayer pays for half of those four million meals through the schools free and reduced lunch programs. The taxpayer winds up paying on the front end for meals that arent healthy, then 50 years later the taxpayer picks it up again with medicare and Medicaid health costs for issues that are nutrition related, he said. With the strawberries example, students wound up with food that was two days old and was grown 20 miles away, Putnam said. Were creating a market for Visit from Page 2 Washington County residents mingle prior to Commissioner Adam Putnams visit on Wednesday. For decades plywood was the go-to inexpensive wood of choice for many home-repair projects. In manufactured wood product available. Then the term MDF, or medium-density its way onto home-improve ment shows and among do-it-yourselfers, making it a popular material in recent years. Still, many people do not know the differences between these types of wood products. Plywood is constructed by gluing several layers of thin wood veneers between two pieces of wood to create a solid sheet. Experts say there is an odd number of veneer layers, and each one is attached at a right angle to the one below to add strength to the plywood. There may be knots or ir regularities in the plywood because it is made of actual slices of wood. It comes in a variety of strengths, depending on the thickness of the plywood. Thickness can vary by sheet depending on the manufacturer, so each sheet may not be consistent. MDF is formed with mixed with glue or resin. Under heat or pressure, the MDF is made into a solid material. Because MDF is not made from slices of wood to form veneers, it will not have the traditional graining or knots associated with wood. This can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on how it is ultimately used. MDF is often easy to cut, drill and manipulate because users will not have to work around grain or knots. But users should be careful to drill pilot holes before attaching MDF because it can split. Due to machine creation, MDF is generally uniform in thickness, which makes it consistent for many uses. It is important to note that sanding and cutting of MDF can cause the release of formaldehyde. Safety gog gles and a mask are a must when using this product. Plywood is more read ily used for walls, ceilings of its strength. MDF is widely relied on for building cabinets, crafts, shelving and trimwork. Plywood and MDF: Whats the dierence?

Washington County has variety of agricultural interests BY RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Record peanut prices have con vinced local farmers to try their hands at the crop, but Washington County Extension Director Andy Andreasen doesnt think prices are going to go any higher this year. Last year peanut crops contracted at $550 per ton, but a wholesale failure of peanut crops across the country due to the drought resulted in non-contracted crops selling for as much as $1,000 per ton. I dont think that is going to happen again this year, but I dont think prices are going to be any lower than last year, either, Andreasen said. I think prices are likely to be as good or better. The unseasonable weather has farmers plant ing crops a bit ahead of schedule, and Andreasen sees no reason not to do so he predicts no further cold snaps this year. The pecan trees are blooming, and when you see that, you know the cold weather is over, he said. You can fool an oak tree, but you cant fool a pecan tree. Cotton and peanuts are major crops for both Wash ington County and the TriCounty area, but they are not the only crops grown in northwest Florida. Water melons, grapes, cattle, hay, corn, and Satsumas are all grown in this region, and things are already starting to sprout. We had a grower in here this morning saying his watermelon vines were already two feet long, Andreasen said. Things are growing well ahead of schedule. A lot of melon growers are reporting they already have melons on vines. Tomatoes are already planted, and farmers are prepping the soil for peanut and cotton crops, which cant be planted in cold soil. Millet is never planted before April 15, he ex plained, due to the soil temperatures. For some crops, it is better to plant them two months late than one month early. Andreasen said cotton and peanuts are the top two crops for the county, but there is plenty of corn and soybeans as well as sorghum and millet grown in the county. The county also has a few dairies, although the family dairy is becom ing more and more rare, Andreasen said. When I started with the Extension Service back in 1983, there were 60 dairies in Washington, Holmes and Jackson counties, he said. Now that number is down once was. Some of the few surviving dairies also have land they farm, which helps keep the family business didnt have the luxury of the additional acreage. While Andreasen says there are only a few Sat suma growers in Washing ton County nowadays, once upon a time the orange-like fruit was a popular crop. Thats the reason Orange Hill Road has that name, and 30s the fruit was boun tiful in Washington County. A big freeze caused a decrease in the popularity of Satsumas as a crop in Washington County, and a couple of big freezes in the 80s also damaged the grazing crops busi ness of stockers. Farmers would let other companies cattle graze on their land and get paid at the end of the season based on how much weight the cattle had gained. The freezes in 83 and 85 killed of the feed crops, which meant there was nothing for the cattle to eat. When other peoples cattle is losing weight and starving, and youre responsible, then youre in trouble. Some produce is grown in Washington County and much of it is handled through a local co-op, Andreasen said. Seed corn is also a good crop, with much of it being sold to hunters who use it to feed deer. The deer population in Washington County is one serious problem all farmers have to face, whether they are growing grapes or cab bages. Very few people grow soy beans in the county any more, because the deer will eat them up. Andreasen said he has had reports of as many as 32 deer being spotted in one soy bean 17 or more deer in one In one case, deer even Andreasen noted. They are developing a taste for different things. Since the only natu ral predator deer have in Washington County are pickup trucks, the popula tion has soared, he said. Deer have also been known to dig up peanut seeds after they have been planted and eat them. Wild hogs can also be a bane of the farmers exis tence. Andreasen said there are hogs up and down Al ligator Creek and Holmes Creek that will do damage One phase of agricul ture that many people dont think of as agriculture is the timber business, An dreasen said. There are 291,000 acres of timber in the area, and much of it goes to making pellets at the Green Circle tondale. The pine pellets are shipped to Europe where they are burned as fuel, and the plant itself operates by burning the bark of the trees for fuel, Andreasen said. The facility cost $117 million to build, but the business has done well and more plants are under construction. According to the com pany website, Green Circle ing and logistics concept provides a superior renew able energy product from both sustainability and net energy gain points of view. represents the largest renewable source for tions of the worlds fossil fuel consumption in the near term, according to the website. ing agricultural factor for Washington County, its that there isnt just one factor. Washington County farmers do it all, and have found ways to survive even as times, and weather, continue to change. We have a strong di versity of agriculture here, Andreasen said.

Nowadays, homeown ers looking to sell their homes know its not as easy to do so as it might have been a few years ago. A struggling econo for many homeowners to sell their homes for a price theyre comfortable with. But the sagging economy is not the only to sell a home. In fact, a host of other things, some obvious but some not so obvious, can hurt a homes value as well. Location: A homes location is arguably its best or worst selling point. A home in a great location wont be as dif a bad neighborhood. But location goes beyond a neighborhoods reputa tion, especially in recent years. Homeowners who live in a neighborhood or development with many foreclosures might properties are hurting their own homes value. Lots of foreclosures could negatively affect a neighborhoods reputa tion, which might make a home within that neigh borhood less attractive to prospective buyers. Appearance: A homes appearance is another obvious variable that might affect its resale value. Homeowners might want their home to uality, but thats not go ing to help when the time comes to sell the home. If the exterior paint is out of the ordinary, then it might be wise to choose a more traditional or conserva tive color before erecting the For Sale sign out front. The same goes for a homes interior. If the interior design is espe cially unique, a more traditional interior decor might help the home sell faster. Size and style: Another thing to consider when selling a home is its size and style. A home that stands out on the block might be an atten tion-grabber, but thats not always attractive to prospective buyers. For instance, a colonial sitting in the middle of a porary homes will stand out, but likely for all the wrong reasons. It will likely appear dated and out of place, which is something buyers might not want. In addition, if the home is considerably larger or smaller than the surrounding homes, then this could hurt its value. Non-conformity: In many ways, conformity is not considered an admi rable trait. But when sell ing a home, conformity could make the difference between a home selling quickly or remaining on the market for months if not years. When shopping for a home, buyers often shop in certain neighbor hoods and towns and might see many different homes within a given ZIP code. Homeowners with homes that dont con form to others in the area sell their homes. For in stance, homeowners try ing to sell a two bedroom home in a neighborhood homes might notice their homes value is not as high as that of surround ing homes, regardless of the neighborhood or how similar the homes exterior is to surrounding homes. Age: Older homes might have character and a sense of nostalgia, but appraisers take age into consideration when deter mining a homes value. And buyers tend to lean toward newer homes for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the feeling that newer homes have far more modern amenities than older homes. When it comes to a homes value, there are a host of things that could ultimately increase or decrease that value in the eyes of prospective buyers.

Many problems are bound to occur sooner or later, but there are a few that diligent homeowners can prevent. One of those prevent able problems is flood ing. Any home with floor drains or plumbing fixtures below street level can flood, and this can be due to inclement weather, such as heavy rainstorms, local sewer system backup, or groundwater swelling. Flooding can even occur in the spring when melting occurs as the air temperature increases. While homeowners wont be able to control the weather, they can take steps to floodproof their home. Do some preventive landscaping. If the ground around the homes founda tion slopes toward the house, make some grading changes so that the ground slopes away from the home. Insulate the heating ducts. Some home heating ducts are under the base ment floor. In such homes, homeowners should make sure these ducts are properly insulated and watertight. Make sure the vents all lead outside the home. The weather can cause moisture issues, but some moisture problems can come from inside the home as well. Clothes dryers and bathrooms are both in ternal moisture sources, and these sources should always be vented outside the home. Clean gutters and downspouts. Gutters and downspouts should be cleaned to ensure water is effectively being diverted away from the home. Clean gutters and downspouts in the spring after a long winter, and do so again in the fall to keep fallen leaves from block ing the flow of water. Downspouts should extend four feet from the outside wall of the house. Inspect the home at least once a year. Before buying a home, buyers often hire a professional inspector to ensure the home is safe and sound. But the inspections should not stop once buyers sign on the dotted line. To prevent flooding, homeowners should in spect their homes founda tion for cracks once a year. If the home has a chimney and fireplace, check for cracks there as well. If any cracks are dis covered, consult a profes sional immediately. Clean out basement drains. Basement drains should be cleaned annu ally from the house to the street. If the drains are still slow after cleaning, then clean them more than once a year. When leaving the home for an extended pe riod of time, turn the water valve off. Homeowners worried about flooding can calm those fears when go ing on vacation or another long trip by turn the water valve off at the source. This ensures that, should a line break while no one is home, water will not pump into the house. Floodproofing a home can save homeowners from potentially costly repairs and unsightly dam age to a homes interior. How to oodproof your home Cleaning gutters and downspouts is one way to prevent homes from ooding.

8 Spring Home and Farm, Washington County News / Holmes County Times-Advertiser, April 4, 2012 BY CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Look ing forward to what the conditions are going to be like this year, said UF/IFAS Holmes County Extension Director Shep Eubanks, youd have to look back to the previous year. For 2012 we are facing similar conditions to 2011 for crop production, said Eubanks. We are still in a La Nina phase regarding weather. La Nina tends to produce warmer than nor mal and drier than normal weather conditions. In 2011, the agricultural crops turned out very well considering the adverse weather conditions that we faced during the spring and early summer, said Eubanks. Prices for crops like peanuts and cotton were at record highs and timely rains resulted in very good cotton yields, and peanut yields were above county historical averages, said Eubanks. Soybean yields were average to above aver age. Field corn yields were very poor across Holmes County as most acres were not irrigated and the drought conditions caused severe losses. Eubanks said that the La Nina is expected to weaken as we head into early sum mer, which, hes hoping, will provide for good grow ing conditions. Commodity price outlooks are very good this year for both peanuts and cotton, he said, and irrigated corn also is very promising as well. We continue to adjust to the increase in troublesome weeds like palmer amaranth in agronomic crops, said Eubanks. Cogongrass is also an invasive weed that is making rapid inroads in Holmes County and is a weed that both farmers and landowners need to take se riously and eradicate if they He also said that cattle very good for the next year or more as cow herd numbers continue to shrink nationwide and prices are expected to remain strong for the next couple of years. For more information contact Shep Eubanks, County Extension Director, UF/IFAS Holmes County Extension Service at 850547-1108. Holmes County ag forecast: About same as last year Morning fog envelopes farm machinery on March 30. Storage space is often a coveted commodity. The pur chase of a storage shed could alleviate some clutter issues and move items outdoors -creating more space. Garden storage sheds present another place where individuals can keep items out of sight but easily acces belongings quite quickly, many homeowners think about a shed purchase to at least keep outdoor lawn and garden essentials in their own place. The process of purchas ing a shed is not as simple expensive type on the market. There are other factors that come into play when select ing a shed. Appearance and design: Although the function of a shed is to store items out of sight, the shed itself will be in full view in a yard. There fore, plenty of homeowners prefer something that has just as much aesthetic appeal as it does storage capacity. An unsightly shed can affect the overall appearance of a property, or even hurt the sale price for homeowners think ing about putting the home on the market. Its important to select a shed in a price range that also complements the style of he home so it coor dinates with other features. Some people choose to have a custom-built shed that can replicate the architectural style of the home and even features the same siding and Size: Sheds come in a variety of sizes, from compact locker-sized sheds to large buildings that may even double as a garden room, pool room or kids playhouse. Homeowners should keep in mind that the size of the shed may have to meet local municipality rules for addi tions or structural changes to a property. A larger shed may material, such as concrete, and may be subject to permit applications and inspec tions, whereas a smaller shed may not have such stringent requirements. Furthermore, certain towns actually may restrict the size and placement of a shed if it interferes with neighbor in a negative way. Siding materials: Sheds are constructed of various exterior materials. Some of the more affordable options are metal or plywood and par ticle board. However, these materials can be easily com promised by rain and snow. The most maintenance-free materials are vinyl or molded PVC-type plastics. However, these may look like cookiecutout units and may not have as much visual appeal. Cedar and wood are popular siding choices but wont be maintenance-free.
