School Board discusses new technology By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The teachers best friend these days is a board, but its not made of wood. Chipley School District teachers sang the praises of their Promethean boards Monday at the School Boards regular April meeting. Every teacher I have talked to has said they dont know how they functioned without it, said Chipley High School teacher Carol Schimpf. It is a dynamic teaching tool that engages students as well as handles tasks for teachers. Promethean boards are formally known as an ActivBoard and are produced by Promethean World, an interactive education company based in England. The boards work like touch-screen computers and can be controlled by a teachers laptop or iPad. Students also can interact with the boards either by writing on them with a stylus or using remote clicker devices. The district has about 30 boards between the various Chipley and Vernon schools, and the boards cost about $5,500 each. The boards help us save money in the classroom, because we dont have to print as many handouts, Schimpf said. We have the information right there on the board. With the clickers, students can answer questions and play games on the board from their seats. The board also can select students randomly for tasks, she said. Teachers with multiple classes can have multiple screens, Schimpf said, noting the feature See TECHNOLOGY A2 CECILIA SPEARS | The News I Am Inn Ministries residents Jimi Brenlend, left, and Jessica Owens were available to provide their testimonies on how the ministry has affected their lives.

District 5 encompasses a diverse collection of demographics, terrain and opportunities in Washington County, and Guy looks forward to serving the people of the area, Guy said in a news release. A longtime Washington County resident, Guy cites the need for transparency in government as one of his most important reasons for running for of ce. Our county needs someone with high standards, moral values and honesty to help restore faith in our system of government, Guy said. I am running with no party af liation, with loyalty to no group or special interest or faction, except the voters and residents of Washington County. Guy is retired and serves as pastor of Shepherds Gate Church in Wausau. He has operated several successful businesses and has the knowledge, communication skills and ability to bring people together that will make him an effective public ofcial, he said, and he is ready to do his part to make Washington County a better place to live. We enjoy a quality of life and access to natural resources that make our area attractive to people and businesses, and its important that we have a longterm plan to protect these things which make our community such a great place to live. Jobs, roads, health and safety, re, ambulance and law enforcement are all important issues, but the people come rst, Guy said. We have to look out for each other, regardless of the challenges we face, and by doing this, all other things are more easily accomplished.

JAMES GUY I Am Inn Ministries holds open house By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Many gathered March 31 in an apartment complex to share food, fellowship, testimony and tears as I Am Inn Ministries held its open house. I Am Inn Ministries is a Christian-based, nonpro t organization that takes in women who were released from prison and, at times, homeless women. We have a jail ministry, and in the ministry we found that the same women were coming back in because they only have one place to go back to and then we realized something had to be done, said Becky Huskey, director of I Am Inn Ministries. Thats when we started I Am Inn Ministries, and that was seven years ago. Huskey said they started out with just one apartment on the bottom oor of their complex on South Railroad Avenue in Chipley. Not all of them were from the prisons, some were homeless women or women in transition from bad situations and in need of a temporary place to stay, Huskey said. We run off of donations only. Local thrift stores donate clothes and other items from time to time. One of the requirements is that they go to church at least three times See MINISTRIES A2 50 Senior signs with L.B.

allows the teachers to prepare and save presentations then switch back and forth as needed. In my 30 years of teaching, this is the most useful item I ever had in the classroom, she said. Roulhac Middle School teacher LaJuana Malloy agreed with Schimpf. Technology is in every part of our childrens lives now, with computers, cell phones, iPads and iPods, she said. With this technology we are able to get our children engaged in the classroom. Vernon Elementary School teacher Jay Grif s said he uses his Promethean board every day in his classroom. We feel like it is our best friend, he said. Gary Clark with the Fitzhugh and Essie D. Carter Educational Foundation, also was on hand for the board meeting, and he presented grant checks for $15,000 to Chipley High School and $25,000 to Vernon High School from the foundation. The trust was established by the Carters to supplement educational activities in local high schools. Some of the money from past Foundation grants was used in Chipley to purchase iPads for teachers, which are now used along with the Promethean boards, Schimpf said. This years grants were awarded to the schools agriculture, English, library and sports programs. In other business, the board approved hiring a new athletic director and head football coach, Thomas Chip Harris. His starting date is dependent upon his completing the requirements to get his Florida teaching license, Dr. Sandra Cook, superintendent, told the board. Before being hired by Chipley, Harris coached the Ashford, Ala., Yellow Jackets for three seasons. He is from Chipley, the superintendent said. Former head coach Rob Armstrong has gone to Georgia, where he is the head coach at Berrien County High in Nashville, Tenn., according to varsitysportseast.com. News Flash!

When they apply for jobs, we make sure they say they have to have Sundays off. She said it was the only thing that made the program as effective as it has been. Jesus is our program, she said. Were not a drug rehab facility, but a lot of the women here have been addicted to drugs. We all have the tendency to be addicted something in some form or another, we just choose to be addicted to Jesus. The Serenity Prayer is something she said they use, not just for overcoming addictions but also to sort through lifes issues. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference, Huskey said. Its not what weve done in our past that denes who we are and sometimes its hard to except the things of our past and be able to move past it but with love and support we can do the best we can. Huskey said they operate without grants and function on donations only and the support of local churches. If a church is interested in calling us, wed be happy to come out and tell them about I Am Inn Ministries and give our testimonies, Huskey said. We can only offer so much and what we can offer is Jesus. Debbie Blaylock said she came to the ministry as a resident in 2006. I was a resident and then a house manager for a year, Blaylock said. Before I was actually walking with the Lord for nine years before I fell because of some family matters. I fell out of the church rst and then fell back into meth addiction. She said it was that evening she called I Am Ministries that they came to pick her up. They not only let me back in, they came and got me, she said. The only way to stay off drugs is through God. Through His love, His compassion and these ladies have strengthened me, plus it helps that were all going through the same issues. Where Im weak someone will be strong and where someones weak I may be strong. Sharon Booth said she came to the house in 2009. I was released from prison and was in a transition home in Greenhead, Booth said. I got a job at The Salvation Army and needed to place to stay that was closer to work. Booth said when she was called to the I Am Inn Ministries she thought it was to be a resident and it wasnt until after she arrived she found out that she was being asked to be a house manager. I was a team leader in the prison for seven years before coming here, and Ive been here ever since, Booth said. God has been good to me and has blessed me here. Its my calling, its been overwhelming. She said some women come in and they come to an understanding of what the purpose of the program is and then some come through temporarily. If they get it or not its up to them, and thats what did it for me, knowing I needed to change something, Booth said. I did drugs for over 30 years, prostituted, and lost my family now its all been restored. She said recovering her life had recovered her relationship with her son and daughter. I know it can be tough, but I believe with all my heart that God will restore what is yours, Booth said. I never thought Id be helping in this way and I know this is where I belong. Having to watch over six girls isnt an easy task, she said. Through the years they have had more than 80 women come through, whether for short term or long term stays. God is always faithful, and weve got nothing but love from the community, Booth said. Every one of us has a background, things we have to work through, but through the grace of God we can overcome all things. These services are available for both Washington and Holmes counties.

Chipley police ofcers and Washington County sheriffs deputies went to 1209 Old Boni fay Road April 1 in search of two men wanted on felony violation of probation warrants. They were searching for 21-yearold Roy Lee Hardrick and a 17-year-old juvenile male. They were hiding in the attic of the home, which ofcers realized when one of them fell through the ceiling. They were hiding up in the attic, Police Chief Kev in Crews said Thursday at the City Council workshop, and they fell through the ceiling. That was how we got them. It can happen. I know because 15 years ago I was in an attic looking for drugs and did the same thing, Crews said, laughing. Both Hardrick and the juvenile were placed under arrest and taken to the county jail. These subjects have shown that they cant abide by the terms of their probation and continue to cause prob lems within the community, Crews said in the police report. CHIPLEY The regular weekly meeting of the Chi pley Kiwanis Club was called to order by President Vince Spencer. The club recognized Bruce Christmas and Gene Holley for their years in Kiwanis, 47 years for Bruce and 12 years for Gene. Club guest was Gary Clark of West Florida Electric.

It seems it has become the duty, responsibility and even a privilege for the prattler to inform readers of the passing of well known entertainers in the country and bluegrass genre of music. Bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs died March 28 in a Nashvillearea hospital. He was a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee as part of pioneering duo Flatt and Scruggs. Earl was 88. Earl Eugene Scruggs was born in Flint Hill, N.C, on Jan. 6, 1924. He, along with Lester Raymond Flatt, (born June 19, 1914, died May 11, 1979), did much to popularize bluegrass music. Their sound became widely recognized in the 1960s through their recording of The Ballad of Jed Clampett, the theme for the network television show The Beverly Hillbillies. Both Flatt and Scruggs grew up in rural farm homes immersed in rich musical traditions. Both worked in textile mills before becoming full-time musicians. Flatt began his radio career in 1939 and worked in several bands, including that of Charlie Monroe and his Kentucky Partners with whom, in 1943, he sang tenor and played guitar and mandolin. In 1945, Flatt was hired as guitarist and lead singer in Bill Monroes Blue Grass Boys. Earl Scruggs, who remained close to home during World War II years to help his widowed mother, was recognized from an early age as a banjo prodigy. By the time he was a teen, he had developed his own unique threenger distinctive style of banjo picking. This enabled him to play a broad variety of music with speed and clarity. Scruggs and Flatt met when Scruggs, too, joined Monroes band, and both became part of what proved to be The Blue Grass Boys most in uential lineup. Flatt and Scruggs played a crucial role in the development of the sound that later came to be known as bluegrass a name taken from the bands name. Early in 1948, Flatt and Scruggs left Monroe. Later that spring, they formed their own band, the Foggy Mountain Boys. Early band members in that group included well known guitar/ vocalists Jim Eanes and Mac Wiseman, along with ddler Jim Shumate and bassist Cedric Rainwater (Howard Watts). In 1949, Curly Seckler joined the band. He remained until 1962. The Flatt and Scruggs sound took its de nitive form in 1955 with addition of the Dobro resonator guitar of Buck Uncle Josh Graves. With this instrument, they departed signi cantly from Bill Monroes sound, although, like him, they maintained a purely acoustic approach. In 1953, Martha White Flour began sponsoring daily Flatt and Scruggs early morning radio shows over WSM-Nashville and continued to support them for the rest of their career. In 1955, they became members of the Grand Ole Opry, where the Martha White our theme song is still heard with the familiar voice of Lester Flatt singing, now you bake right with Martha White, concluding the jingle with goodness gracious, its good Martha White. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, their syndicated television shows were seen by millions of viewers. Their recordings, including gospel songs like Cabin on the Hill, began hitting the charts. An appearance at Hollywood fold club The Ash Grove caught the ear of the producer of The Beverly Hillbillies and led to The Ballad of Jed Clampett, their only single to reach No. 1 on the country charts. The sacred songs offered by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs are an inspiring and memorable testament to their religious faith. An early Columbia LP record featured such gospel greats as Gone Home, Joy Bells, Im Working On a Road (to glory land) and Give Mother My Crown. Another 1951 Columbia LP record gives us a sampling of some of the all time favorite secular songs by Flatt and Scruggs, including The Ballad of Jed Clampett, Hard Traveling, Coal Miners Blues and Wreck of the Old 97. The liner notes on the above album describe the music as contemporary in every sense of the word, while acknowledging that bluegrass has its antecedents in an older traditional music. Earl Scruggs was sick off and on in recent years, including a September 2010 hospitalization in North Carolina for an undisclosed illness. He was preceded in death by his son, Steve, and his wife, Louise Scruggs, who was a pioneering female in the music industry. She helped guide and build her husbands career after his departure from the Foggy Mountain Boys and established a folk-rock band, The Earl Scruggs Revue, with sons Randy and Gary Scruggs. In 1972, this group recorded on the Nitty Gritty Dirt Bands Will The Circle Be Unbroken, a three-LP compilation of classic country and bluegrass songs. Visitations for Earl Scruggs were held March 30-31 at the Spring Hill Funeral Home in Nashville. Funeral services were held in the Ryman Auditorium on April 1. Special thanks and acknowledgments are extended to CountryRow. com for materials contributing to this story. A visit to that site will give the readers more details on the life of Earl Scruggs, as well as the organizations where memorials can be made in his honor. See you all next week. If you see me out and about when I am not working, there is a good chance youll catch me in my favorite baseball cap, which is blue and red and has a big A on the front. Whatever you do, dont say Roll Tide! Ive had at least three folks see the hat and make the Alabama assumption, and though I have no animosity toward Alabama (other than the usual SEC heckling when they are playing the Razorbacks), the hats A stands for Arkansas, as in the Double-A Texas League team, the Arkansas Travelers. So heres a little minor league baseball trivia. The Travelers, also known as the Travs, are North Little Rocks minor league franchise. They used to reside in Little Rock, but those crafty North Little Rockians stole the team away by building a spanking new stadium about ve years ago. Ray Winder Stadium, where the Travs resided in Little Rock from 1932 until 2006, had seen better days. So a special election seeking a 1-percent sales tax bought the Travs a new home north of the Arkansas River called Dickey-Stephens Park. The park was built with a partnership between the city of North Little Rock, the Travs and Little Rock nancier Warren Stephens. It was named after Jack and Witt Stephens and Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey and his brother Skeeter, who also played in the major leagues. Coincidentally, the Dickey brothers also wound up working for the Stephenses after their baseball careers ended. The Travelers were founded in 1895 and were the rst professional team to claim an entire state in 1957 when they became the Arkansas Travelers. About the time the Travs got their new stadium, Northwest Arkansas got its own Texas League team, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. They play at Arvest Stadium in Springdale and have done pretty well, considering their team mascot is a Sasquatch. Both of the Travs names, the Travelers and the Arkansas Travelers, were derived from the old folk song The Arkansas Traveler. Which brings us to the actual topic this week the song, The Arkansas Traveler, which is largely responsible for the state of Arkansas image, which is to say that thanks to a song written 160 years ago, Arkansas remains the Rodney Danger eld of United States. Our beloved columnist Perry Wells seems to enjoy introducing me as an Arkansas traveler, so I am sure he would see the humor in people mistaking my Travelers hat for an Alabama one, although I suspect Alabama fans would take much more umbrage at such a faux pas than I do its not like anyone has mistaken the hat for a Texas A&M cap, for example. The song dates back to the 1850s and has had a variety of lyrics. It is credited to Arkansas own Col. Sanford C. Faulkner, a ddle player, storyteller and former Confederate of cer. According to the encyclopedia of Arkansas website, the song has shaped the image of Arkansas since the 1840s. Thats probably not a compliment, unless you nd barefoot, wiseacre hillbillies attractive. Think The Beverly Hillbillies, Tobacco Road or even worse Evening Shade and you get the average persons image of Arkansas. Anyway, the song was adopted as the Arkansas state song from 1949 to 1963 and since 1987 has been the state historical song. I think the of cial state song now is Phil Ochs Heres To The State Of Mississippi, and if its not, then it should be. A visit to the Internet gives several versions of The Arkansas Traveler lyrics, and apparently there is even a Jerry Garcia version as well as traditional versions, of cial state lyrics written by a committee, and even childrens versions of the song. The song also was part of Laurel and Hardys Academy Award-winning short The Music Box and inspired a Vaudeville circuit comedy routine, which is echoed in Garcias song. The song also is credited with inspiring the Edward Washburn 1858 painting of the same name. By now youre probably thinking, what has any of this got to do with Florida? Well, oddly enough, when I started searching online to hear The Arkansas Traveler played, the rst version I found was Archie Lee performing at the 1956 Florida Folk Festival in White Springs. And what version is he singing? Why its the vaudeville version, of course, which is very similar to Jerry Garcias take in fact, its probably the same song. Apparently someone named Michelle Shocked also has done a version of the vaudeville lyrics on a childrens album, to boot. Arkansas gets no respect, I tell you but Im still going to root for the Travs. Dear Editor, I would like to thank Mt. Zion, family and friends for supporting me on Feb. 25. God bless you all.

Local Washington County News | A5 Wednesday, April 11, 2012 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County School Board agreed April 3 to relinquish all responsibility of the old county agriculture building to the town of Ponce de Leon, pending the acceptance of the Ponce de Leon Town Council during their next regularly scheduled meeting. Ive done the title search and report that the deed is all ready to be signed over to the Town of Ponce de Leon if they are willing to accept it, which I havent heard from them, said HCSD Attorney Lucas Taylor. Holmes County Superintendent Gary Galloway said the building wasnt on school board property, but with an agreement from the landowner, the building was leased to the town of Ponce de Leon as a storage area in 1988. The school board no longer had any invested interest in the ag building but still had use for the gym, Galloway said. I dont even know if we still have squatters rights to the ag building because of the lack of necessity and use of the building by the school board. Galloway said with it being on someone elses land and with the extent of repair needed to bring the building to satisfactory usability, it was too much of a liability to the school board to continue being attached to the building. With the recent interest of the town of Ponce de Leon to expand on the use of that building, were more than willing to relinquish all ties to the building to the town of Ponce de Leon, Galloway said. Present at the school board meeting were two parents concerned with the dress code enforced at the Holmes County High School Prom. Weve got an issue with Principal Eddie Dixon singling girls out about the way they dress and not others, said parent Nikki Elmore. There were girls at the dance that werent able to dance or they were sent home because of the way they dressed, and there were others there who were dressed in less who got to enjoy their prom. The second parent, Christian Mann, said more parents say theyve had similar problems but never spoke up about it, and now that her daughter had missed out on enjoying her prom, she was there to speak to the school board. My daughter worked hard and saved up to go to prom on her own money, and she didnt even get to enjoy her prom, Mann said. She didnt even get one step into prom when she was told that she could wear her dates jacket or she could leave. Mann said she studied the dress code for prom and that she found it to be very confusing. It says that you cant have straps but you must have straps, you cant show your back, but you can and you see all these pictures of girls in the same dress or less, and they werent told to leave or cover up, Mann said. My daughter worked so hard to raise money for that dress and never even made it to the dance oor. Galloway said he promised to look into the matter extensively. Larry Zorn with the facilities division told the board they were being ned $40,000 by the Florida EduPUBLIC NOTICE EXECUTIVE SESSION The Washington County Commission will conduct an Attorney-Client Executive Session on or around 10:30 A.M.

Bonifay pageant set for Saturday cation Finance Program from their last FEFP and transportation audit. It wasnt clear about the processing of the matrix, and there were places that needed initialing that werent, Zorn said. It was clearly just a clerical error, and were asking permission to appeal the ne. According to the report, six of the 10 students in our ESE Support Levels 4 and 5 sample had exceptions involving reporting errors or records that were not properly or accurately prepared. Of the 131 students in our student transportation sample, 69 had exceptions involving their reported ridership classi cation or eligibility for state transportation. Weve moved to new standards of documentation, and the adjustments to the new system have been less than smooth, but its something that will be worked out with time. It just so happened that the state decided to crack down hard on these issues, Galloway said. Were not the only ones having to place appeals because of this matter, and were looking at a possible long process of appeals. The board approved to move forward with appealing the ne. The board also approved of out-of-state travel requests from Bethlehem High Schools Future Business Leaders of America to attend the FBLA State Leadership Conference, competitions and workshops from April 27 to May 1 in Orlando and Bethlehems grade 9-12 math teams to attend the Enterprise Community College Math Tournament on May 4 in Newton, Ala.

Local A6 | Washington County News Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Anniversary of extended hours clinic Candidacy for clerk of court announced Ponce de Leon gym renovations complete By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9418 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE DE LEON The Town of Ponce de Leon was told that the renovations to the gym would be complete the following day of their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, April 5. The Council was informed that a group wished to rent the gym for a Gospel Sing, but there was no amount set for renting the building. Chairman Ronald Farrington suggested they do some research in the matter before setting an amount and Town Attorney Lyndia Spears advise that they also look into event insurance. This needs to be an arrangement that bene ts everyone, Mayor Sheena Hougland said. Farrington announced that nothing could be done about the agriculture building yet because the Holmes County School Board has yet to inform the town about their title search ndings. Spears con rmed that no one has tried to contact them. The Town of Ponce de Leon has requested to the school board to allow the town to use the agriculture building to lease to a local welder. After extensive research the school board conducted a title search after a resent audit showed that the building wasnt on school board land. After the title search ndings the school board approved of relinquishing the deed to the gym to the town pending that the town wanted it. Students from Gulf Coast State College came to the Council to give a presentation on the bene ts and importance of uoride. This is our community outreach program to build community uoride awareness for Holmes County, said Jessica Simmons, sophomore with a major in Dental Hygiene and resident of Ponce de Leon. She was accompanied by Bekki McDuf e, also a sophomore with a major in Dental Hygiene and a resident of Bethlehem. The Ponce de Leon Fire Department is in need of an ice machine. The Council deliberated on how the re department might nd a way to get their ice machine replaced. The Council approved of a request by two individuals to purchase a building in town to start a day care facility. Council member Judy Reynolds asked what could be done about unsightly items in someones yard. Until we get an ordinance put together for that sort of thing, there isnt much that can be done, Farrington said. The next Ponce de Leon Town Council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. May 3 at the Ponce de Leon Town Hall. LEE MOSS

Submit your photos to news@ chipleypaper.com Hook harvest Photos Special to Florida Freedom Newspapers This sturgeon was one of 11 netted, studied and released last week to determine any after-effects from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Dylan Cazalas, 8, helped his father take this gobbler last weekend in Washington County. The sherman paid the price of admission and walked to the end of the pier and hooked up his Sibiki bait rig. Everyone thinks Sibiki means something in Japanese, but I asked a lady of Japanese descent, and she said it meant nothing in her native tongue. The sherman unraveled his king rod equipped with 30-pound test line, a swivel a length of wire of about two feet and two treble hooks, one arranged one over the other to assure a hook-up if the rst missed its mark. Below him were thousands of greenback herring and cigar minnows that one sherman described as being so large they had their own ZIP code. The sherman lowered the bait rig into the clouds of bait under the pier, hooking up several herring and cigar minnows. Picking out the one he gured had the best chance of being eaten alive, he hooked the top treble hook through its tail, leaving the lower hook to swing free. Usually this free-swinging hook will be the one that foul hooks the king, thus catching a sh that would otherwise have gotten a meal and gone on its merry way. The other baits that were not chosen to be shed with were placed into an ice chest to be used later. Dead bait sometimes can be as effective as live ones, especially on the days the bait is just not under the pier to be caught. Herring and cigar minnows seek the safety of the pilings of the pier hoping the Spanish and kings and bonito will not come under the pier to eat them. On some days there are so many under the pier, it is impossible to see the bottom. Most shermen, after tossing the cigar minnow out as far as possible, will not put their rods down and instead hold on for dear life. To lean a rod against the rail is an invitation to lose several hundred dollars of high-priced reel and rod. When a king hits, it usually is a violent affair and the sherman had better be holding on with both hands. Fighting a big sh off a pier requires the cooperation of all the shermen on the pier. Those not hooked up need to get out of the way of the sherman who is. After the sh is subdued to the point of exhaustion, another sherman will assist with a gaff on a rope to hook the sh and drag it on board as the line is not suf cient to lift the sh from the water. Thats about all there is to it. Whether you are a sherman of just a bystander, it is worth the price of admission to just walk out on one of our piers here in Bay County and watch the action. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Photos special to Florida Freedom Newspapers Whopper Spanish like this one have become common in recent years thanks to catch limitations that have allowed more sh to reach maturity. They take many of the same lures that kings like, though they usually are found nearer the beaches and piers. Below, large king mackerel are not the exception, though this is a nice one. MACKEREL 2 WA Y S Both species of macks come to Panhandle early By FRANK SARGEANT Special to Florida Freedom Newspapers franksargeant@charter.net Except for the paint job and the size, youd have a hard time telling Spanish mackerel from their larger cousins, the king mackerel. They look alike and act alike, and both are fast as greased lightning. Both also have arrived in Panhandle area waters early this year thanks to the incredibly warm winter and will provide action through mid-October. Heres a look at how to go about tangling with these toothy speedsters. FIT FOR A KING Kings generally travel schooled by size. The snakes of 7 to 12 pounds swarm together in the largest masses, usually around reef lines or directly around the largest bait sh schools. It is the migration of the bait that brings the annual migration of the game sh thread ns and Spanish sardines are their primary targets. Sometimes these guys are only 1 or 2 miles off the beaches. The larger kings, 15 pounds and on up to the maximum size of 40 and even 50 pounds, more often are found around wrecks and offshore ledges, though a few jumbos also prowl the outfall of the major passes. They home in on larger baits, blue runners, cigar minnows, lady sh, even young Spanish and blue sh. The smaller kings usually are easy pickings, easily located because there often is a eet of boats trolling around the larger schools. If you can get out there on a calm day in your 17-foot center console, you can catch them. Just join the trolling circle, put out a 5to 6-inch chrome single-hook spoon like the Drone on a downrigger or No. 2 planer, and you soon will be in business. Remember to stay in the trolling pattern. Dont drive your boat through the bait sh, or you will ruin the action for everybody and get a well-deserved cussing from the charterboat skippers for doing so. Bigger kings can be more of a challenge. Most of the largest are caught by slowtrolling large live baits, with blue runners a favorite for their durability. Foot-long lady sh, mullet and other inshore species also attract big bites at times. Most anglers use stinger rigs on these big baits; a dangling treble, size 6 in triple-x strong, is trailed back the side of the bait on a No. 6 wire and sometimes a couple of trebles are used on larger baits. These extra hooks prevent kings from chopping off the tail of the bait as they often do without getting hooked. Kings are not dif cult to handle after the rst run. But that rst run of a really big one can clean a spool in seconds, so reels capable of handling plenty of line are a must. Most anglers like at least 300 yards on the spool tests of 20 to 25 are common in spinning gear, 30 to 40 in conventional. Keep your drag light, even with heavy tests. SPANISH SURPRISE Although Spanish mackerel never reach the maximum size of kings, it has become fairly common in recent years to catch them up to 7 pounds, unheard of 20 years ago when heavy commercial harvest made it rare for a Spanish every to reach its third birthday. These days there are plenty of 5-year-old sh out there, and they run and ght just like the king sh. Spanish are great sh for kids and inexperienced anglers because they seem almost eager to take the hook at times, and if the rst one misses the second or third does not. Spanish average around 2 to 3 pounds so heavy gear is de nitely not called for. A 7-foot medium action spinning rod, 2500-sized reel and a spool of 10-pound test micro ber is the ticket, allowing the sh to show their stuff and yet with enough capacity to handle the occasional 6 to 7 pounder. Again, pier tackle needs to be signi cantly heavier to ease control of the sh from the span, but even here be sure to set your drag light to avoid pull-outs. Though Spanish have sharp teeth, they also have sharp eyes. You can catch them on live baits with No. 2 wire, but you will get a lot more hits on arti cials if you go to clear uorocarbon or hard mono in 25 to 30 pound test. Tie to the micro ber with a double uniknot. Avoid snaps and swivels because macks sometimes home in on them, apparently thinking they are extra tiny glass minnows, and will cut you off. FROM HOOKING TO COOKING Both kings and Spanish are good on the table with proper preparation. They have a more shy taste than some species. But get them on ice immediately when caught and cook them without freezing, and they can make excellent eating. Fillet, skin and remove the red line and you have gotten rid of most of that shy taste the remaining llets are good grilled, baked or broiled or in an Italian tomato and parmesan casserole, among many other recipes. SIZE AND BAG LIMITS The limit on Spanish is a generous 15 sh daily, minimum size 12 inches to the fork. Note that small king sh look very much like Spanish, but the limit on kings is two daily, 24 inches to the fork; you can differentiate the species because the Spanish has a black dorsal n, while the king dorsal is blue-gray.

Wallace TALLADEGA, HERE WE COME News to provide live coverage of Aarons Dream Weekend By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Ladies and gentlemen, were going to Talladega. The one and only Cecilia Spears and I have gotten the go-ahead from our editor and the credentials from the speedway. There will be live updates from my Twitter account @ catspitstop all weekend as we attend the Aarons Dream Weekend at Talladega, Ala. Because there were no races this weekend, I gured what better time to give my fellow NASCAR fans a brief history on the Talladega Superspeedway? Known as NASCARs most competitive track, not that long ago it was just farmland next to two abandoned airport runways the government had sold to the city of Talladega after World War II. One day, Anniston, Ala., insurance executive Bill Ward, a race car driver and fan, and William H.G. (Bill) France, who happens to be the founder of NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation, found the land in North Talladega County following a causal conversation in Daytona in the mid-1960s. There was a meeting with then-mayor of Talladega James Hardwick and some of the other city of cials in a restaurant in Anniston in 1966. France asked the group to think about putting the track at the site, and after a trip to the Firecracker 400 in Daytona, they agreed to the track, which was at rst called the Alabama International Motor Speedway. In 1989, it was renamed Talladega Superspeedway after they saw the economic impact race fans had on Daytona. The track is 2.66 miles long, has banking of 33 degrees on each end, 18 degree banking in the tri-oval and is four lanes wide. Many of the cars have reached speeds above 220 miles per hour in the backstretch, which is nearly 4,000 feet long. The all-reserved 212acre in eld has room for thousands, and the grandstand seats an astonishing 143,231 people. Construction began on the 2,000-acre speedway site on May 23, 1968. The rst race was held on Saturday, Sept. 13, 1969, the Bama 400 Grand Touring, where Ken Rush drove his Chevrolet Camaro into Victory Lane. Then on Sunday, Sept. 14, 1969, the rst Grand National race (now the NASCAR Sprint Cup), Richard Brickhouse became the rst driver to win a major race at the Talladega 500 (now the Good Sams Club 500). That rst race didnt go off without some worries. At practice for that rst major race, there were problems with the tires holding out for more than just a few laps. Talladega is known as one of the fastest, most competitive superspeedways in the world for one reason: In that rst practice, Charlie Glotzbach won the pole position with a speed of 199.466 miles per hour. The tires were declared unsafe by the Professional Drivers Association led by Richard Petty because the speeds the drivers were going werent allowing the tires to hold out. But France knew there were thousands of fans who had traveled to Talladega to see the race, so it went on, using some of the drivers who raced the day before and the drivers who had decided not to race in the boycott. All 500 miles of that rst race were run without any major accidents. France decided after that rst race at Talladega to rain check the house for any future race at Daytona and Talladega. This action that France took broke up the PDA, and it dissolved two years later. Talladega has been a place for many of the drivers to set and break many records over the years. It wasnt too long before the speedway became known for it speed and tough driving conditions. Being one of the fastest and most competitive tracks, it has played a very big role in the career of many of the top drivers of today. Pete Hamilton was the rst driver to win two of the major events in 1970 driving Plymouths by Petty Enterprises. The rst driver to win three years in a row was David Person. He won those three races in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Wining both races in 1975 and the spring event in 1976 and the race in 1980, Buddy Baker was the rst four-time winner at Talladega. Drivers who have since joined Baker in that category are Jeff Gordon, Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison. In 1987, the world stock car record was made by Bill Elliott, when he clocked a speed of 212.809 miles per hour during qualifying. The record for a 500 mile stock car record was made in 1997 during a caution-free spring Winston Select 500 with a speed of 188.354 miles per hour by Mark Martin. He also won this race. The only person to win 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Talladega was the late great Intimidator (Dale Earnhardt Sr.), he won those races in 1983, 1984, two races in 1990, 1991, two races in 1993, 1995 1999 and 2000. The Diehard 500 became the rst 500mile race at Talladega to have 1,000 of cial lead changes in 1993. This is a feat because the track was only 25 years old at the time, and the Diehard 500 was only 188 laps. The rst sell-out in Talladega history was when they moved the second event of the year from the summer to October in 1997. When the race was moved to October, it was placed into the schedule for the 10 Championship Cup races, which Talladega has enjoyed since 1997.

Council discusses lawsuit against Georgia rm By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON Vernon City Council decided two years was long enough to wait. The council voted Monday to start legal action against an Georgia rm which has been building a cascade trailer for the towns re department for nearly two years. Fluid Air Systems in Gainsville, Ga., is the company that has yet to deliver the cascade trailer the city purchased two years ago. A cascade trailer is designed to hold tanks with oxygen and other emergency supplies needed by reghters at the scene of a re. We paid for it up front with FEMA grant money, said Fire Chief Matt Gothard. And for the past several months, every time Gothard contacted the company for information about the trailer, he has been told to wait two more weeks. Its been two weeks for the past several months, Gothard told the council. Councilman Byron Biddle made the motion to sue over the trailer. Its been way too long, he said. In other business, the council heard that Saturdays Easter egg hunt was a big success. About 300 people turned out for the citys rst Easter egg hunt. It went really well, and we had beautiful weather, said Council Member Gwen March. City Clerk Dian Hendrix also reported that the damage to the city hall bathroom, where the stucco ceiling had fallen in, would not be covered by insurance. Biddle suggested she get three estimates for the repairs and then the city could get the damage repaired. The cause of the damage is unknown. The council also approved the placement of an antennae on top of the citys old VHS tower. City Attorney Kerry Adkison asked if the city needed to go before the County Planning Commission before granting permission for the antennae installation. Biddle said the antennae is part of the High-speed, high capacity broadband program being planned for counties served by Opportunity Florida through the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. Opportunity Florida, along with its sister organization, the Florida Rural Heartland Economic Development Initiative, are co-owners of the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 By Bobby Ray Rackley Special To Extra EDITORS NOTE: This essay was submitted by Bobby Ray Rackley, an inmate at Graceville Correctional Facility. His essay won a writing contest based on the theme, How To Make A Difference. I believe there are many ways that I can make a difference in this world. However, I believe the most important is the impact and in uence I have on those around me. I strive to be a positive in uence on everyone that I come in contact with on a day-to-day basis. I am a rm believer in the age-old saying Lead by example. Therefore the best way for me to make a difference is to be the absolute best man that I can be, and encourage others to follow my example. I believe all of us have the power within ourselves to change the world. The problem is most of us have absolutely no idea how to begin to accomplish such a noble goal. How many of us even take the time out from the rat race and our hectic schedules to ask ourselves how can I make the world a better place? most of us automatically assume there is nothing I can do I am just one person, one voice, out of millions. The fact of the matter is, though, change begins with one. If I want to change the world then it starts with me. I have to be the type of person that I expect others to be. I have to treat others the way I want to be treated. This life principle is known as the Golden Rule and I can think of no better principle to live by. I can make a difference in tomorrow by each life I touch today. The idea of making a difference in the world is not so far fetched. In fact just the opposite, its quite plausible. It doesnt take all that much to make a positive impact and be a good in uence to others. Little things mean a lot more than most people think. Just a kind word or a smile can make a difference and brighten someones day. I try to smile often after all smiles are contagious. Have you ever tried talking to someone that was smiling at you? You cant help but smile back at them. Even when you are in a bad mood, the smile is automatic when someone is smiling at you, it just come natural. I like to speak kind words and compliment others. It is amazing to watch the transformation on someones face and how they just light up when you shower them with praise. A few kind words can lift someones spirit and change their whole outlook on the day. The people around us have a lot more in uence on our lives than we realize. Im sure you have heard it said you can tell who a man is, by who his friends are. Many young people in todays society blame their mistakes on peer pressure. They are just trying to t in, or be one of the guys. This is proof that we all are in uenced by the people around us. I believe deep in my heart if I had more positive role models growing up, I would not be in prison today. My in uences were alcoholics, and street hustlers, and that is just what I became. I thank God that he allowed me to live long enough to see the error of my ways. I thank God for the wisdom I gave gained. I now realize that I am a in uence on the people around me. This means I have a huge responsibility thats why it is so important for me to be the best man I can be, not only for myself but for the ones that I may in uence, that call me friend. I once heard it said that who we were is who we are; our past has shaped us into who we are today. Therefore, how we live today determines who we are tomorrow. The bible says that we reap what we sow, therefore I choose to sow good crops like kindness, compassion, generosity, friendship, and love. I sow good crops today so that I can reap good crops in my future. The only time I ever want to look down on my brother is when I am helping him up. I can make a difference just by being a good man. In closing I would like to offer a word of encouragement to all who read this. Join me in my mission to be the best I can be and make it your mission as well. Think of all the ones that we may in uence as a group instead of just an individual, A chain reaction of good that can go throughout the world. Yes, I can make a difference and with your help, we can change the world by the way we in uence others. With the emergence of springtime, comes the arrival of allergies. Although the landscape is lush, many people experience the beauty that comes with the warmer weather as well as the bothersome allergy symptoms. Pets can also be affected by allergies and it is important to be mindful of any symptoms that your pet might be displaying. People sneeze and wheeze with allergies, while dogs tend to itch and scratch, says Dr. Adam Patterson, clinical assistant professor and a board certi ed dermatologist at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. The hallmark sign of allergic skin disease is itch that can be manifested as licking, chewing, rubbing, biting, scooting, head shaking, and/or scratching. Typically, the face, ears, paws, armpits, groin, and rump are the most affected sites. Patterson explains that animals with allergic skin disease are highly prone to recurring skin and/or ear infections involving bacteria and yeast. Infections can cause increased itch, redness, pimples, blackheads, scabs, dander, hair loss, skin thickening, and odor. Horses many times will break out in hives. Animals tend to be allergic to many of the same things people are hypersensitive to such as pollen, mold, dust, house dust mite, and foodstuffs, Patterson explains. An exception would be eas the most common thing dogs and cats are allergic to. Despite this, many people are in eanial and refuse to believe just a few ea bites can be triggering the itch response in their pet. Likewise, horse owners may not be aware how just a few insect bites could be responsible for or contributing to itchy skin disease. Allergic skin disease can be mistaken for many other forms of skin disease. A veterinary dermatologist is trained to work with primary care veterinarians to get down to the bottom of how to best diagnose and manage skin and ear disease, including allergies, in animals. See www.acvd. org for more information. It is important to understand that allergies can be managed, but not cured, just as with humans. The goal is to reduce the extent and severity of signs, not completely eliminate them. Management regimens might include increased frequency of bathing (washing pollens off the skin surface), antimicrobials or antibiotics, ea prevention, fatty acids, antihistamines, change in diet, steroids, and immunotherapy, also known as desensitization or hyposensitization. The use of the latter can be determined through a good step-wise diagnostic approach along with allergy skin testing and administered by way of allergy shots or oral allergy drops, says Patterson. When it is time to take your pet in for allergy skin testing? Typically, dogs should have allergy symptoms for at least 5-6 months out of the year before considering skin testing for environmental allergies, which include reactivity to pollen, molds, house dust mite, and house dust, in order for the diagnostic tests and treatment to be cost effective over the long haul, Patterson recommends. Patterson explains that rainfall cuts down on airborne pollen and may provide itch relief to pets, but at the same time rain may cause plants to produce more pollen over the next few weeks. Indeed, rain fall might worsen ea and mold allergies because moisture and humidity are favorable to eas and mold. Of course, rain has no effect on food-related allergic skin diseases. Given the mild winter and lack of national weather fronts during the 2011-2012 seasons, pollen is likely to be at an all-time high this year. Consequently, there likely will be many itchy pets this year, says Patterson. Allergies are certainly not an uncommon thing to see in pets. It is important to be aware of the symptoms and to notify a veterinarian when they persist. For more information please visit vetmed.tamu.edu/ large-animal-hospital/ dermatology/allergies.

This Message Courtesy of God Loves the Poor The Bible contains over 2000 references to poverty and social justice issues, with at least 200 references telling us directly to help the poor. Throughout the Old and New Testament we are commanded to help those in need, whether they are widows, orphans, immigrants, or the impov erished. Nowhere are we advised to question whether they are lazy or why they in dire straits. We are simply told to help them. The Bible even institutes particular social programs to help the poor. Farm ers are instructed leave the gleanings for the poor. (Leviticus 19:9) Perhaps if we had such wise social programs economies, there would be less poverty, or at least there might be less misery amongst the impoverished. It is probably true that we shall always have the poor with us, and this makes it more important, not less, that we should minister to their needs. The poor are shunned even by their neighbors, butthe rich have many friends. It is a sin to de spise ones neighbor, but blessed isthe one who is kind tothe needy.

SNYDER Whenever I am out in public, I try conducting myself with the greatest of care knowing that people are watching. The thing that bothers me the most is that many people have never mastered the ne art of how to dress in public. Some people have never been taught how to dress, let alone how to dress in public. Whenever I go to the mall, and believe me it is as seldom as possible, I cannot help noticing some of these people. What I cannot understand is why young men wear pants too big for them and young women wear pants too small for them. Perhaps we ought to get a little group together and try to reverse this trend. Somebody got the wrong information. I was in the mall the other day and noticed several young men in front of me with trousers several sizes too big and were constantly falling down. One hand was grabbing their trousers while the other hand was hanging onto a cellphone. I wanted to go up and tell them that there is this marvelous new invention called The Belt that would solve the problem that they were having. Once they have The Belt, they can put it on and forget about their trousers falling down to their ankles. If there is anything I do not want to see it is somebodys trouser falling down to their ankles. Criticize me if you want to, but I simply cannot not follow these young men walking down in mall. By the time I cover the space of three stores, I am a nervous wreck, wondering when those trousers are actually going to fall. Young women are no different. It seems to me that most young women purchase their entire wardrobe when they are in the rst grade. At that time, the clothing ts very nicely. By the time these young women hit the 10th grade, those rst-grade clothing are not only out of style, but t no more. Where are their mothers? I know the economy is bad, but really, is it so bad that people cannot afford to upgrade their wardrobe, as they get older and consequently bigger? Shouldnt there be some sale on mirrors these days? If I were a congressman in Washington, D.C., I would work very hard to pass a bill that would make it illegal to walk out of your house on any given morning without rst looking into the mirror to see if everything is covered. That is the kind of change I can believe in. As I get older, it gets more dif cult to conduct myself as a gentleman because there is so much I do not want to see. Last week I had to return an item to a store and was unprepared for what I was to encounter. I assumed I was well prepared for the day. I went through the normal routine of exercising my eyes to look upward. I try my best when I am out in public to look into the eyes of people, especially those of the gentler sex. This particular day I had really met my match. I stood in line waiting to return my item and I was not thinking too much about the process. I was humming to myself some hymn that was on my mind at the time and was not paying attention to the surroundings. As I say, I trained my eyes to look upward when I am out in public. Eventually, it was my turn to go to the counter and return the item. I walked up and was aghast. I said to myself, Look at the eyes, look at the eyes, look at the eyes. For some reason my eyes were not paying any attention whatsoever. All those years of training seem to have gone out the window. My eyes were in a staring mode and I did not know how to break it. It really is not my fault; I think people should take personal responsibility for their person when they go out in public. They should make sure that everything is prim and proper because you never know what you are going to run into in any given day. For a moment, I had forgotten what I was at the counter for, I tried to shift my eyes into a higher level and it was all I could do to communicate what I needed to communicate at the time. But my eyes, oh, my eyes. They certainly were not helping me in this regard. I might as well come clean and confess. As I walked up to the counter to return my item I could not help but notice that the woman behind the counter was wearing, and you will not believe me, a beard. Yes, I said a beard, whiskers and all. I could not believe it at rst. I thought maybe my eyes were trying to get back at me for being so harsh on them the last few months. But no, there in full view of everybody, including my pair of eyes, was a woman with a beard any man would have been proud to wear. All I could think of at the time was what Job said. I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? (Job 31:1 KJV). My motto: be careful, little eyes. where you stare. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 352-687-4240 or email jamessnyder2@att.net.

School Board discusses new technologyBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The teachers best friend these days is a board, but its not made of wood. Chipley School District teachers sang the praises of their Promethean boards Monday at the School Boards regular April meeting. Every teacher I have talked to has said they dont know how they functioned without it, said Chipley High School teacher Carol Schimpf. It is a dynamic teaching tool that engages students as well as handles tasks for teachers. Promethean boards are formally known as an ActivBoard and are produced by Promethean World, an interactive education company based in England. The boards work like touch-screen computers and can be controlled by a teachers laptop or iPad. Students also can interact with the boards either by writing on them with a stylus or using remote clicker devices. The district has about 30 boards between the various Chipley and Vernon schools, and the boards cost about $5,500 each. The boards help us save money in the classroom, because we dont have to print as many handouts, Schimpf said. We have the information right there on the board. With the clickers, students can answer questions and play games on the board from their seats. The board also can select students randomly for tasks, she said. Teachers with multiple classes can have multiple screens, Schimpf said, noting the feature See TECHNOLOGY A2 CECILIA SPEARS | The NewsI Am Inn Ministries residents Jimi Brenlend, left, and Jessica Owens were available to provide their testimonies on how the ministry has affected their lives.

District 5 encompasses a diverse collection of demographics, terrain and opportunities in Washington County, and Guy looks forward to serving the people of the area, Guy said in a news release. A longtime Washington County resident, Guy cites the need for transparency in government as one of his most important reasons for running for of ce. Our county needs someone with high standards, moral values and honesty to help restore faith in our system of government, Guy said. I am running with no party af liation, with loyalty to no group or special interest or faction, except the voters and residents of Washington County. Guy is retired and serves as pastor of Shepherds Gate Church in Wausau. He has operated several successful businesses and has the knowledge, communication skills and ability to bring people together that will make him an effective public ofcial, he said, and he is ready to do his part to make Washington County a better place to live. We enjoy a quality of life and access to natural resources that make our area attractive to people and businesses, and its important that we have a longterm plan to protect these things which make our community such a great place to live. Jobs, roads, health and safety, re, ambulance and law enforcement are all important issues, but the people come rst, Guy said. We have to look out for each other, regardless of the challenges we face, and by doing this, all other things are more easily accomplished.

JAMES GUY I Am Inn Ministries holds open houseBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Many gathered March 31 in an apartment complex to share food, fellowship, testimony and tears as I Am Inn Ministries held its open house. I Am Inn Ministries is a Christian-based, nonpro t organization that takes in women who were released from prison and, at times, homeless women. We have a jail ministry, and in the ministry we found that the same women were coming back in because they only have one place to go back to and then we realized something had to be done, said Becky Huskey, director of I Am Inn Ministries. Thats when we started I Am Inn Ministries, and that was seven years ago. Huskey said they started out with just one apartment on the bottom oor of their complex on South Railroad Avenue in Chipley. Not all of them were from the prisons, some were homeless women or women in transition from bad situations and in need of a temporary place to stay, Huskey said. We run off of donations only. Local thrift stores donate clothes and other items from time to time. One of the requirements is that they go to church at least three times See MINISTRIES A2 50 Senior signs with L.B.

allows the teachers to prepare and save presentations then switch back and forth as needed. In my 30 years of teaching, this is the most useful item I ever had in the classroom, she said. Roulhac Middle School teacher LaJuana Malloy agreed with Schimpf. Technology is in every part of our childrens lives now, with computers, cell phones, iPads and iPods, she said. With this technology we are able to get our children engaged in the classroom. Vernon Elementary School teacher Jay Grif s said he uses his Promethean board every day in his classroom. We feel like it is our best friend, he said. Gary Clark with the Fitzhugh and Essie D. Carter Educational Foundation, also was on hand for the board meeting, and he presented grant checks for $15,000 to Chipley High School and $25,000 to Vernon High School from the foundation. The trust was established by the Carters to supplement educational activities in local high schools. Some of the money from past Foundation grants was used in Chipley to purchase iPads for teachers, which are now used along with the Promethean boards, Schimpf said. This years grants were awarded to the schools agriculture, English, library and sports programs. In other business, the board approved hiring a new athletic director and head football coach, Thomas Chip Harris. His starting date is dependent upon his completing the requirements to get his Florida teaching license, Dr. Sandra Cook, superintendent, told the board. Before being hired by Chipley, Harris coached the Ashford, Ala., Yellow Jackets for three seasons. He is from Chipley, the superintendent said. Former head coach Rob Armstrong has gone to Georgia, where he is the head coach at Berrien County High in Nashville, Tenn., according to varsitysportseast.com.

When they apply for jobs, we make sure they say they have to have Sundays off. She said it was the only thing that made the program as effective as it has been. Jesus is our program, she said. Were not a drug rehab facility, but a lot of the women here have been addicted to drugs. We all have the tendency to be addicted something in some form or another, we just choose to be addicted to Jesus. The Serenity Prayer is something she said they use, not just for overcoming addictions but also to sort through lifes issues. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference, Huskey said. Its not what weve done in our past that denes who we are and sometimes its hard to except the things of our past and be able to move past it but with love and support we can do the best we can. Huskey said they operate without grants and function on donations only and the support of local churches. If a church is interested in calling us, wed be happy to come out and tell them about I Am Inn Ministries and give our testimonies, Huskey said. We can only offer so much and what we can offer is Jesus. Debbie Blaylock said she came to the ministry as a resident in 2006. I was a resident and then a house manager for a year, Blaylock said. Before I was actually walking with the Lord for nine years before I fell because of some family matters. I fell out of the church rst and then fell back into meth addiction. She said it was that evening she called I Am Ministries that they came to pick her up. They not only let me back in, they came and got me, she said. The only way to stay off drugs is through God. Through His love, His compassion and these ladies have strengthened me, plus it helps that were all going through the same issues. Where Im weak someone will be strong and where someones weak I may be strong. Sharon Booth said she came to the house in 2009. I was released from prison and was in a transition home in Greenhead, Booth said. I got a job at The Salvation Army and needed to place to stay that was closer to work. Booth said when she was called to the I Am Inn Ministries she thought it was to be a resident and it wasnt until after she arrived she found out that she was being asked to be a house manager. I was a team leader in the prison for seven years before coming here, and Ive been here ever since, Booth said. God has been good to me and has blessed me here. Its my calling, its been overwhelming. She said some women come in and they come to an understanding of what the purpose of the program is and then some come through temporarily. If they get it or not its up to them, and thats what did it for me, knowing I needed to change something, Booth said. I did drugs for over 30 years, prostituted, and lost my family now its all been restored. She said recovering her life had recovered her relationship with her son and daughter. I know it can be tough, but I believe with all my heart that God will restore what is yours, Booth said. I never thought Id be helping in this way and I know this is where I belong. Having to watch over six girls isnt an easy task, she said. Through the years they have had more than 80 women come through, whether for short term or long term stays. God is always faithful, and weve got nothing but love from the community, Booth said. Every one of us has a background, things we have to work through, but through the grace of God we can overcome all things. These services are available for both Washington and Holmes counties.

Chipley police ofcers and Washington County sheriffs deputies went to 1209 Old Bonifay Road April 1 in search of two men wanted on felony violation of probation warrants. They were searching for 21-yearold Roy Lee Hardrick and a 17-year-old juvenile male. They were hiding in the attic of the home, which ofcers realized when one of them fell through the ceiling. They were hiding up in the attic, Police Chief Kevin Crews said Thursday at the City Council workshop, and they fell through the ceiling. That was how we got them. It can happen. I know because 15 years ago I was in an attic looking for drugs and did the same thing, Crews said, laughing. Both Hardrick and the juvenile were placed under arrest and taken to the county jail. These subjects have shown that they cant abide by the terms of their probation and continue to cause problems within the community, Crews said in the police report. CHIPLEY The regular weekly meeting of the Chipley Kiwanis Club was called to order by President Vince Spencer.

It seems it has become the duty, responsibility and even a privilege for the prattler to inform readers of the passing of well known entertainers in the country and bluegrass genre of music. Bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs died March 28 in a Nashvillearea hospital. He was a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee as part of pioneering duo Flatt and Scruggs. Earl was 88. Earl Eugene Scruggs was born in Flint Hill, N.C, on Jan. 6, 1924. He, along with Lester Raymond Flatt, (born June 19, 1914, died May 11, 1979), did much to popularize bluegrass music. Their sound became widely recognized in the 1960s through their recording of The Ballad of Jed Clampett, the theme for the network television show The Beverly Hillbillies. Both Flatt and Scruggs grew up in rural farm homes immersed in rich musical traditions. Both worked in textile mills before becoming full-time musicians. Flatt began his radio career in 1939 and worked in several bands, including that of Charlie Monroe and his Kentucky Partners with whom, in 1943, he sang tenor and played guitar and mandolin. In 1945, Flatt was hired as guitarist and lead singer in Bill Monroes Blue Grass Boys. Earl Scruggs, who remained close to home during World War II years to help his widowed mother, was recognized from an early age as a banjo prodigy. By the time he was a teen, he had developed his own unique threenger distinctive style of banjo picking. This enabled him to play a broad variety of music with speed and clarity. Scruggs and Flatt met when Scruggs, too, joined Monroes band, and both became part of what proved to be The Blue Grass Boys most in uential lineup. Flatt and Scruggs played a crucial role in the development of the sound that later came to be known as bluegrass a name taken from the bands name. Early in 1948, Flatt and Scruggs left Monroe. Later that spring, they formed their own band, the Foggy Mountain Boys. Early band members in that group included well known guitar/ vocalists Jim Eanes and Mac Wiseman, along with ddler Jim Shumate and bassist Cedric Rainwater (Howard Watts). In 1949, Curly Seckler joined the band. He remained until 1962. The Flatt and Scruggs sound took its de nitive form in 1955 with addition of the Dobro resonator guitar of Buck Uncle Josh Graves. With this instrument, they departed signi cantly from Bill Monroes sound, although, like him, they maintained a purely acoustic approach. In 1953, Martha White Flour began sponsoring daily Flatt and Scruggs early morning radio shows over WSM-Nashville and continued to support them for the rest of their career. In 1955, they became members of the Grand Ole Opry, where the Martha White our theme song is still heard with the familiar voice of Lester Flatt singing, now you bake right with Martha White, concluding the jingle with goodness gracious, its good Martha White. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, their syndicated television shows were seen by millions of viewers. Their recordings, including gospel songs like Cabin on the Hill, began hitting the charts. An appearance at Hollywood fold club The Ash Grove caught the ear of the producer of The Beverly Hillbillies and led to The Ballad of Jed Clampett, their only single to reach No. 1 on the country charts. The sacred songs offered by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs are an inspiring and memorable testament to their religious faith. An early Columbia LP record featured such gospel greats as Gone Home, Joy Bells, Im Working On a Road (to glory land) and Give Mother My Crown. Another 1951 Columbia LP record gives us a sampling of some of the all time favorite secular songs by Flatt and Scruggs, including The Ballad of Jed Clampett, Hard Traveling, Coal Miners Blues and Wreck of the Old 97. The liner notes on the above album describe the music as contemporary in every sense of the word, while acknowledging that bluegrass has its antecedents in an older traditional music. Earl Scruggs was sick off and on in recent years, including a September 2010 hospitalization in North Carolina for an undisclosed illness. He was preceded in death by his son, Steve, and his wife, Louise Scruggs, who was a pioneering female in the music industry. She helped guide and build her husbands career after his departure from the Foggy Mountain Boys and established a folk-rock band, The Earl Scruggs Revue, with sons Randy and Gary Scruggs. In 1972, this group recorded on the Nitty Gritty Dirt Bands Will The Circle Be Unbroken, a three-LP compilation of classic country and bluegrass songs. Visitations for Earl Scruggs were held March 30-31 at the Spring Hill Funeral Home in Nashville. Funeral services were held in the Ryman Auditorium on April 1. Special thanks and acknowledgments are extended to CountryRow. com for materials contributing to this story. A visit to that site will give the readers more details on the life of Earl Scruggs, as well as the organizations where memorials can be made in his honor. See you all next week. If you see me out and about when I am not working, there is a good chance youll catch me in my favorite baseball cap, which is blue and red and has a big A on the front. Whatever you do, dont say Roll Tide! Ive had at least three folks see the hat and make the Alabama assumption, and though I have no animosity toward Alabama (other than the usual SEC heckling when they are playing the Razorbacks), the hats A stands for Arkansas, as in the Double-A Texas League team, the Arkansas Travelers. So heres a little minor league baseball trivia. The Travelers, also known as the Travs, are North Little Rocks minor league franchise. They used to reside in Little Rock, but those crafty North Little Rockians stole the team away by building a spanking new stadium about ve years ago. Ray Winder Stadium, where the Travs resided in Little Rock from 1932 until 2006, had seen better days. So a special election seeking a 1-percent sales tax bought the Travs a new home north of the Arkansas River called Dickey-Stephens Park. The park was built with a partnership between the city of North Little Rock, the Travs and Little Rock nancier Warren Stephens. It was named after Jack and Witt Stephens and Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey and his brother Skeeter, who also played in the major leagues. Coincidentally, the Dickey brothers also wound up working for the Stephenses after their baseball careers ended. The Travelers were founded in 1895 and were the rst professional team to claim an entire state in 1957 when they became the Arkansas Travelers. About the time the Travs got their new stadium, Northwest Arkansas got its own Texas League team, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. They play at Arvest Stadium in Springdale and have done pretty well, considering their team mascot is a Sasquatch. Both of the Travs names, the Travelers and the Arkansas Travelers, were derived from the old folk song The Arkansas Traveler. Which brings us to the actual topic this week the song, The Arkansas Traveler, which is largely responsible for the state of Arkansas image, which is to say that thanks to a song written 160 years ago, Arkansas remains the Rodney Danger eld of United States. Our beloved columnist Perry Wells seems to enjoy introducing me as an Arkansas traveler, so I am sure he would see the humor in people mistaking my Travelers hat for an Alabama one, although I suspect Alabama fans would take much more umbrage at such a faux pas than I do its not like anyone has mistaken the hat for a Texas A&M cap, for example. The song dates back to the 1850s and has had a variety of lyrics. It is credited to Arkansas own Col. Sanford C. Faulkner, a ddle player, storyteller and former Confederate of cer. According to the encyclopedia of Arkansas website, the song has shaped the image of Arkansas since the 1840s. Thats probably not a compliment, unless you nd barefoot, wiseacre hillbillies attractive. Think The Beverly Hillbillies, Tobacco Road or even worse Evening Shade and you get the average persons image of Arkansas. Anyway, the song was adopted as the Arkansas state song from 1949 to 1963 and since 1987 has been the state historical song. I think the of cial state song now is Phil Ochs Heres To The State Of Mississippi, and if its not, then it should be. A visit to the Internet gives several versions of The Arkansas Traveler lyrics, and apparently there is even a Jerry Garcia version as well as traditional versions, of cial state lyrics written by a committee, and even childrens versions of the song. The song also was part of Laurel and Hardys Academy Award-winning short The Music Box and inspired a Vaudeville circuit comedy routine, which is echoed in Garcias song. The song also is credited with inspiring the Edward Washburn 1858 painting of the same name. By now youre probably thinking, what has any of this got to do with Florida? Well, oddly enough, when I started searching online to hear The Arkansas Traveler played, the rst version I found was Archie Lee performing at the 1956 Florida Folk Festival in White Springs. And what version is he singing? Why its the vaudeville version, of course, which is very similar to Jerry Garcias take in fact, its probably the same song. Apparently someone named Michelle Shocked also has done a version of the vaudeville lyrics on a childrens album, to boot. Arkansas gets no respect, I tell you but Im still going to root for the Travs. Dear Editor, I would like to thank Mt. Zion, family and friends for supporting me on Feb. 25.

LocalWashington County News | A5Wednesday, April 11, 2012By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County School Board agreed April 3 to relinquish all responsibility of the old county agriculture building to the town of Ponce de Leon, pending the acceptance of the Ponce de Leon Town Council during their next regularly scheduled meeting. Ive done the title search and report that the deed is all ready to be signed over to the Town of Ponce de Leon if they are willing to accept it, which I havent heard from them, said HCSD Attorney Lucas Taylor. Holmes County Superintendent Gary Galloway said the building wasnt on school board property, but with an agreement from the landowner, the building was leased to the town of Ponce de Leon as a storage area in 1988. The school board no longer had any invested interest in the ag building but still had use for the gym, Galloway said. I dont even know if we still have squatters rights to the ag building because of the lack of necessity and use of the building by the school board. Galloway said with it being on someone elses land and with the extent of repair needed to bring the building to satisfactory usability, it was too much of a liability to the school board to continue being attached to the building. With the recent interest of the town of Ponce de Leon to expand on the use of that building, were more than willing to relinquish all ties to the building to the town of Ponce de Leon, Galloway said. Present at the school board meeting were two parents concerned with the dress code enforced at the Holmes County High School Prom. Weve got an issue with Principal Eddie Dixon singling girls out about the way they dress and not others, said parent Nikki Elmore. There were girls at the dance that werent able to dance or they were sent home because of the way they dressed, and there were others there who were dressed in less who got to enjoy their prom. The second parent, Christian Mann, said more parents say theyve had similar problems but never spoke up about it, and now that her daughter had missed out on enjoying her prom, she was there to speak to the school board. My daughter worked hard and saved up to go to prom on her own money, and she didnt even get to enjoy her prom, Mann said. She didnt even get one step into prom when she was told that she could wear her dates jacket or she could leave. Mann said she studied the dress code for prom and that she found it to be very confusing. It says that you cant have straps but you must have straps, you cant show your back, but you can and you see all these pictures of girls in the same dress or less, and they werent told to leave or cover up, Mann said. My daughter worked so hard to raise money for that dress and never even made it to the dance oor. Galloway said he promised to look into the matter extensively. Larry Zorn with the facilities division told the board they were being ned $40,000 by the Florida EduPUBLIC NOTICE EXECUTIVE SESSIONThe Washington County Commission will conduct an Attorney-Client Executive Session on or around 10:30 A.M.

LocalA6 | Washington County News Wednesday, April 11, 2012Anniversary of extended hours clinic Candidacy for clerk of court announcedPonce de Leon gym renovations completeBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9418 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE DE LEON The Town of Ponce de Leon was told that the renovations to the gym would be complete the following day of their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, April 5. The Council was informed that a group wished to rent the gym for a Gospel Sing, but there was no amount set for renting the building. Chairman Ronald Farrington suggested they do some research in the matter before setting an amount and Town Attorney Lyndia Spears advise that they also look into event insurance. This needs to be an arrangement that bene ts everyone, Mayor Sheena Hougland said. Farrington announced that nothing could be done about the agriculture building yet because the Holmes County School Board has yet to inform the town about their title search ndings. Spears con rmed that no one has tried to contact them. The Town of Ponce de Leon has requested to the school board to allow the town to use the agriculture building to lease to a local welder. After extensive research the school board conducted a title search after a resent audit showed that the building wasnt on school board land. After the title search ndings the school board approved of relinquishing the deed to the gym to the town pending that the town wanted it. Students from Gulf Coast State College came to the Council to give a presentation on the bene ts and importance of uoride. This is our community outreach program to build community uoride awareness for Holmes County, said Jessica Simmons, sophomore with a major in Dental Hygiene and resident of Ponce de Leon. She was accompanied by Bekki McDuf e, also a sophomore with a major in Dental Hygiene and a resident of Bethlehem. The Ponce de Leon Fire Department is in need of an ice machine. The Council deliberated on how the re department might nd a way to get their ice machine replaced. The Council approved of a request by two individuals to purchase a building in town to start a day care facility. Council member Judy Reynolds asked what could be done about unsightly items in someones yard. Until we get an ordinance put together for that sort of thing, there isnt much that can be done, Farrington said. The next Ponce de Leon Town Council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. May 3 at the Ponce de Leon Town Hall. LEE MOSS

Submit your photos to news@ chipleypaper.com.Hook harvest Photos Special to Florida Freedom NewspapersThis sturgeon was one of 11 netted, studied and released last week to determine any after-effects from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Dylan Cazalas, 8, helped his father take this gobbler last weekend in Washington County. The sherman paid the price of admission and walked to the end of the pier and hooked up his Sibiki bait rig. Everyone thinks Sibiki means something in Japanese, but I asked a lady of Japanese descent, and she said it meant nothing in her native tongue. The sherman unraveled his king rod equipped with 30-pound test line, a swivel a length of wire of about two feet and two treble hooks, one arranged one over the other to assure a hook-up if the rst missed its mark. Below him were thousands of greenback herring and cigar minnows that one sherman described as being so large they had their own ZIP code. The sherman lowered the bait rig into the clouds of bait under the pier, hooking up several herring and cigar minnows. Picking out the one he gured had the best chance of being eaten alive, he hooked the top treble hook through its tail, leaving the lower hook to swing free. Usually this free-swinging hook will be the one that foul hooks the king, thus catching a sh that would otherwise have gotten a meal and gone on its merry way. The other baits that were not chosen to be shed with were placed into an ice chest to be used later. Dead bait sometimes can be as effective as live ones, especially on the days the bait is just not under the pier to be caught. Herring and cigar minnows seek the safety of the pilings of the pier hoping the Spanish and kings and bonito will not come under the pier to eat them. On some days there are so many under the pier, it is impossible to see the bottom. Most shermen, after tossing the cigar minnow out as far as possible, will not put their rods down and instead hold on for dear life. To lean a rod against the rail is an invitation to lose several hundred dollars of high-priced reel and rod. When a king hits, it usually is a violent affair and the sherman had better be holding on with both hands. Fighting a big sh off a pier requires the cooperation of all the shermen on the pier. Those not hooked up need to get out of the way of the sherman who is. After the sh is subdued to the point of exhaustion, another sherman will assist with a gaff on a rope to hook the sh and drag it on board as the line is not suf cient to lift the sh from the water. Thats about all there is to it. Whether you are a sherman of just a bystander, it is worth the price of admission to just walk out on one of our piers here in Bay County and watch the action.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net Photos special to Florida Freedom NewspapersWhopper Spanish like this one have become common in recent years thanks to catch limitations that have allowed more sh to reach maturity. They take many of the same lures that kings like, though they usually are found nearer the beaches and piers. Below, large king mackerel are not the exception, though this is a nice one. MACKEREL 2 WA Y SBoth species of macks come to Panhandle earlyBy FRANK SARGEANTSpecial to Florida Freedom Newspapers franksargeant@charter.net Except for the paint job and the size, youd have a hard time telling Spanish mackerel from their larger cousins, the king mackerel. They look alike and act alike, and both are fast as greased lightning. Both also have arrived in Panhandle area waters early this year thanks to the incredibly warm winter and will provide action through mid-October. Heres a look at how to go about tangling with these toothy speedsters.FIT FOR A KINGKings generally travel schooled by size. The snakes of 7 to 12 pounds swarm together in the largest masses, usually around reef lines or directly around the largest bait sh schools. It is the migration of the bait that brings the annual migration of the game sh thread ns and Spanish sardines are their primary targets. Sometimes these guys are only 1 or 2 miles off the beaches. The larger kings, 15 pounds and on up to the maximum size of 40 and even 50 pounds, more often are found around wrecks and offshore ledges, though a few jumbos also prowl the outfall of the major passes. They home in on larger baits, blue runners, cigar minnows, lady sh, even young Spanish and blue sh. The smaller kings usually are easy pickings, easily located because there often is a eet of boats trolling around the larger schools. If you can get out there on a calm day in your 17-foot center console, you can catch them. Just join the trolling circle, put out a 5to 6-inch chrome single-hook spoon like the Drone on a downrigger or No. 2 planer, and you soon will be in business. Remember to stay in the trolling pattern. Dont drive your boat through the bait sh, or you will ruin the action for everybody and get a well-deserved cussing from the charterboat skippers for doing so. Bigger kings can be more of a challenge. Most of the largest are caught by slowtrolling large live baits, with blue runners a favorite for their durability. Foot-long lady sh, mullet and other inshore species also attract big bites at times. Most anglers use stinger rigs on these big baits; a dangling treble, size 6 in triple-x strong, is trailed back the side of the bait on a No. 6 wire and sometimes a couple of trebles are used on larger baits. These extra hooks prevent kings from chopping off the tail of the bait as they often do without getting hooked. Kings are not dif cult to handle after the rst run. But that rst run of a really big one can clean a spool in seconds, so reels capable of handling plenty of line are a must. Most anglers like at least 300 yards on the spool tests of 20 to 25 are common in spinning gear, 30 to 40 in conventional. Keep your drag light, even with heavy tests. SPANISH SURPRISEAlthough Spanish mackerel never reach the maximum size of kings, it has become fairly common in recent years to catch them up to 7 pounds, unheard of 20 years ago when heavy commercial harvest made it rare for a Spanish every to reach its third birthday. These days there are plenty of 5-year-old sh out there, and they run and ght just like the king sh. Spanish are great sh for kids and inexperienced anglers because they seem almost eager to take the hook at times, and if the rst one misses the second or third does not. Spanish average around 2 to 3 pounds so heavy gear is de nitely not called for. A 7-foot medium action spinning rod, 2500-sized reel and a spool of 10-pound test micro ber is the ticket, allowing the sh to show their stuff and yet with enough capacity to handle the occasional 6 to 7 pounder. Again, pier tackle needs to be signi cantly heavier to ease control of the sh from the span, but even here be sure to set your drag light to avoid pull-outs. Though Spanish have sharp teeth, they also have sharp eyes. You can catch them on live baits with No. 2 wire, but you will get a lot more hits on arti cials if you go to clear uorocarbon or hard mono in 25 to 30 pound test. Tie to the micro ber with a double uniknot. Avoid snaps and swivels because macks sometimes home in on them, apparently thinking they are extra tiny glass minnows, and will cut you off.FROM HOOKING TO COOKINGBoth kings and Spanish are good on the table with proper preparation. They have a more shy taste than some species. But get them on ice immediately when caught and cook them without freezing, and they can make excellent eating. Fillet, skin and remove the red line and you have gotten rid of most of that shy taste the remaining llets are good grilled, baked or broiled or in an Italian tomato and parmesan casserole, among many other recipes.SIZE AND BAG LIMITSThe limit on Spanish is a generous 15 sh daily, minimum size 12 inches to the fork. Note that small king sh look very much like Spanish, but the limit on kings is two daily, 24 inches to the fork; you can differentiate the species because the Spanish has a black dorsal n, while the king dorsal is blue-gray.

The one and only Cecilia Spears and I have gotten the go-ahead from our editor and the credentials from the speedway. There will be live updates from my Twitter account @ catspitstop all weekend as we attend the Aarons Dream Weekend at Talladega, Ala. Because there were no races this weekend, I gured what better time to give my fellow NASCAR fans a brief history on the Talladega Superspeedway? Known as NASCARs most competitive track, not that long ago it was just farmland next to two abandoned airport runways the government had sold to the city of Talladega after World War II. One day, Anniston, Ala., insurance executive Bill Ward, a race car driver and fan, and William H.G. (Bill) France, who happens to be the founder of NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation, found the land in North Talladega County following a causal conversation in Daytona in the mid-1960s. There was a meeting with then-mayor of Talladega James Hardwick and some of the other city of cials in a restaurant in Anniston in 1966. France asked the group to think about putting the track at the site, and after a trip to the Firecracker 400 in Daytona, they agreed to the track, which was at rst called the Alabama International Motor Speedway. In 1989, it was renamed Talladega Superspeedway after they saw the economic impact race fans had on Daytona. The track is 2.66 miles long, has banking of 33 degrees on each end, 18 degree banking in the tri-oval and is four lanes wide. Many of the cars have reached speeds above 220 miles per hour in the backstretch, which is nearly 4,000 feet long. The all-reserved 212acre in eld has room for thousands, and the grandstand seats an astonishing 143,231 people. Construction began on the 2,000-acre speedway site on May 23, 1968. The rst race was held on Saturday, Sept. 13, 1969, the Bama 400 Grand Touring, where Ken Rush drove his Chevrolet Camaro into Victory Lane. Then on Sunday, Sept. 14, 1969, the rst Grand National race (now the NASCAR Sprint Cup), Richard Brickhouse became the rst driver to win a major race at the Talladega 500 (now the Good Sams Club 500). That rst race didnt go off without some worries. At practice for that rst major race, there were problems with the tires holding out for more than just a few laps. Talladega is known as one of the fastest, most competitive superspeedways in the world for one reason: In that rst practice, Charlie Glotzbach won the pole position with a speed of 199.466 miles per hour. The tires were declared unsafe by the Professional Drivers Association led by Richard Petty because the speeds the drivers were going werent allowing the tires to hold out. But France knew there were thousands of fans who had traveled to Talladega to see the race, so it went on, using some of the drivers who raced the day before and the drivers who had decided not to race in the boycott. All 500 miles of that rst race were run without any major accidents. France decided after that rst race at Talladega to rain check the house for any future race at Daytona and Talladega. This action that France took broke up the PDA, and it dissolved two years later. Talladega has been a place for many of the drivers to set and break many records over the years. It wasnt too long before the speedway became known for it speed and tough driving conditions. Being one of the fastest and most competitive tracks, it has played a very big role in the career of many of the top drivers of today. Pete Hamilton was the rst driver to win two of the major events in 1970 driving Plymouths by Petty Enterprises. The rst driver to win three years in a row was David Person. He won those three races in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Wining both races in 1975 and the spring event in 1976 and the race in 1980, Buddy Baker was the rst four-time winner at Talladega. Drivers who have since joined Baker in that category are Jeff Gordon, Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison. In 1987, the world stock car record was made by Bill Elliott, when he clocked a speed of 212.809 miles per hour during qualifying. The record for a 500 mile stock car record was made in 1997 during a caution-free spring Winston Select 500 with a speed of 188.354 miles per hour by Mark Martin. He also won this race. The only person to win 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Talladega was the late great Intimidator (Dale Earnhardt Sr.), he won those races in 1983, 1984, two races in 1990, 1991, two races in 1993, 1995 1999 and 2000. The Diehard 500 became the rst 500mile race at Talladega to have 1,000 of cial lead changes in 1993. This is a feat because the track was only 25 years old at the time, and the Diehard 500 was only 188 laps. The rst sell-out in Talladega history was when they moved the second event of the year from the summer to October in 1997. When the race was moved to October, it was placed into the schedule for the 10 Championship Cup races, which Talladega has enjoyed since 1997.

Council discusses lawsuit against Georgia rmBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.comVERNON Vernon City Council decided two years was long enough to wait. The council voted Monday to start legal action against an Georgia rm which has been building a cascade trailer for the towns re department for nearly two years. Fluid Air Systems in Gainsville, Ga., is the company that has yet to deliver the cascade trailer the city purchased two years ago. A cascade trailer is designed to hold tanks with oxygen and other emergency supplies needed by reghters at the scene of a re. We paid for it up front with FEMA grant money, said Fire Chief Matt Gothard. And for the past several months, every time Gothard contacted the company for information about the trailer, he has been told to wait two more weeks. Its been two weeks for the past several months, Gothard told the council. Councilman Byron Biddle made the motion to sue over the trailer. Its been way too long, he said. In other business, the council heard that Saturdays Easter egg hunt was a big success. About 300 people turned out for the citys rst Easter egg hunt. It went really well, and we had beautiful weather, said Council Member Gwen March. City Clerk Dian Hendrix also reported that the damage to the city hall bathroom, where the stucco ceiling had fallen in, would not be covered by insurance. Biddle suggested she get three estimates for the repairs and then the city could get the damage repaired. The cause of the damage is unknown. The council also approved the placement of an antennae on top of the citys old VHS tower. City Attorney Kerry Adkison asked if the city needed to go before the County Planning Commission before granting permission for the antennae installation. Biddle said the antennae is part of the High-speed, high capacity broadband program being planned for counties served by Opportunity Florida through the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. Opportunity Florida, along with its sister organization, the Florida Rural Heartland Economic Development Initiative, are co-owners of the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3By Bobby Ray RackleySpecial To Extra EDITORS NOTE: This essay was submitted by Bobby Ray Rackley, an inmate at Graceville Correctional Facility. His essay won a writing contest based on the theme, How To Make A Difference. I believe there are many ways that I can make a difference in this world. However, I believe the most important is the impact and in uence I have on those around me. I strive to be a positive in uence on everyone that I come in contact with on a day-to-day basis. I am a rm believer in the age-old saying Lead by example. Therefore the best way for me to make a difference is to be the absolute best man that I can be, and encourage others to follow my example. I believe all of us have the power within ourselves to change the world. The problem is most of us have absolutely no idea how to begin to accomplish such a noble goal. How many of us even take the time out from the rat race and our hectic schedules to ask ourselves how can I make the world a better place? most of us automatically assume there is nothing I can do I am just one person, one voice, out of millions. The fact of the matter is, though, change begins with one. If I want to change the world then it starts with me. I have to be the type of person that I expect others to be. I have to treat others the way I want to be treated. This life principle is known as the Golden Rule and I can think of no better principle to live by. I can make a difference in tomorrow by each life I touch today. The idea of making a difference in the world is not so far fetched. In fact just the opposite, its quite plausible. It doesnt take all that much to make a positive impact and be a good in uence to others. Little things mean a lot more than most people think. Just a kind word or a smile can make a difference and brighten someones day. I try to smile often after all smiles are contagious. Have you ever tried talking to someone that was smiling at you? You cant help but smile back at them. Even when you are in a bad mood, the smile is automatic when someone is smiling at you, it just come natural. I like to speak kind words and compliment others. It is amazing to watch the transformation on someones face and how they just light up when you shower them with praise. A few kind words can lift someones spirit and change their whole outlook on the day. The people around us have a lot more in uence on our lives than we realize. Im sure you have heard it said you can tell who a man is, by who his friends are. Many young people in todays society blame their mistakes on peer pressure. They are just trying to t in, or be one of the guys. This is proof that we all are in uenced by the people around us. I believe deep in my heart if I had more positive role models growing up, I would not be in prison today. My in uences were alcoholics, and street hustlers, and that is just what I became. I thank God that he allowed me to live long enough to see the error of my ways. I thank God for the wisdom I gave gained. I now realize that I am a in uence on the people around me. This means I have a huge responsibility thats why it is so important for me to be the best man I can be, not only for myself but for the ones that I may in uence, that call me friend. I once heard it said that who we were is who we are; our past has shaped us into who we are today. Therefore, how we live today determines who we are tomorrow. The bible says that we reap what we sow, therefore I choose to sow good crops like kindness, compassion, generosity, friendship, and love. I sow good crops today so that I can reap good crops in my future. The only time I ever want to look down on my brother is when I am helping him up. I can make a difference just by being a good man. In closing I would like to offer a word of encouragement to all who read this. Join me in my mission to be the best I can be and make it your mission as well. Think of all the ones that we may in uence as a group instead of just an individual, A chain reaction of good that can go throughout the world. Yes, I can make a difference and with your help, we can change the world by the way we in uence others. With the emergence of springtime, comes the arrival of allergies. Although the landscape is lush, many people experience the beauty that comes with the warmer weather as well as the bothersome allergy symptoms. Pets can also be affected by allergies and it is important to be mindful of any symptoms that your pet might be displaying. People sneeze and wheeze with allergies, while dogs tend to itch and scratch, says Dr. Adam Patterson, clinical assistant professor and a board certi ed dermatologist at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. The hallmark sign of allergic skin disease is itch that can be manifested as licking, chewing, rubbing, biting, scooting, head shaking, and/or scratching. Typically, the face, ears, paws, armpits, groin, and rump are the most affected sites. Patterson explains that animals with allergic skin disease are highly prone to recurring skin and/or ear infections involving bacteria and yeast. Infections can cause increased itch, redness, pimples, blackheads, scabs, dander, hair loss, skin thickening, and odor. Horses many times will break out in hives. Animals tend to be allergic to many of the same things people are hypersensitive to such as pollen, mold, dust, house dust mite, and foodstuffs, Patterson explains. An exception would be eas the most common thing dogs and cats are allergic to. Despite this, many people are in eanial and refuse to believe just a few ea bites can be triggering the itch response in their pet. Likewise, horse owners may not be aware how just a few insect bites could be responsible for or contributing to itchy skin disease. Allergic skin disease can be mistaken for many other forms of skin disease. A veterinary dermatologist is trained to work with primary care veterinarians to get down to the bottom of how to best diagnose and manage skin and ear disease, including allergies, in animals. See www.acvd. org for more information. It is important to understand that allergies can be managed, but not cured, just as with humans. The goal is to reduce the extent and severity of signs, not completely eliminate them. Management regimens might include increased frequency of bathing (washing pollens off the skin surface), antimicrobials or antibiotics, ea prevention, fatty acids, antihistamines, change in diet, steroids, and immunotherapy, also known as desensitization or hyposensitization. The use of the latter can be determined through a good step-wise diagnostic approach along with allergy skin testing and administered by way of allergy shots or oral allergy drops, says Patterson. When it is time to take your pet in for allergy skin testing? Typically, dogs should have allergy symptoms for at least 5-6 months out of the year before considering skin testing for environmental allergies, which include reactivity to pollen, molds, house dust mite, and house dust, in order for the diagnostic tests and treatment to be cost effective over the long haul, Patterson recommends. Patterson explains that rainfall cuts down on airborne pollen and may provide itch relief to pets, but at the same time rain may cause plants to produce more pollen over the next few weeks. Indeed, rain fall might worsen ea and mold allergies because moisture and humidity are favorable to eas and mold. Of course, rain has no effect on food-related allergic skin diseases. Given the mild winter and lack of national weather fronts during the 2011-2012 seasons, pollen is likely to be at an all-time high this year. Consequently, there likely will be many itchy pets this year, says Patterson. Allergies are certainly not an uncommon thing to see in pets. It is important to be aware of the symptoms and to notify a veterinarian when they persist. For more information please visit vetmed.tamu.edu/ large-animal-hospital/ dermatology/allergies.

Throughout the Old and New Testament we are commanded to help those in need, whether they are widows, orphans, immigrants, or the impoverished. Nowhere are we advised to question whether they are lazy or why they in dire straits. We are simply told to help them. The Bible even institutes particular social programs to help the poor. Farmers are instructed leave the gleanings for the poor. (Leviticus 19:9) Perhaps if we had such wise social programs economies, there would be less poverty, or at least there might be less misery amongst the impoverished. It is probably true that we shall always have the poor with us, and this makes it more important, not less, that we should minister to their needs.The poor are shunned even by their neighbors, butthe rich have many friends. It is a sin to despise ones neighbor, but blessed isthe one who is kind tothe needy.

SNYDERWhenever I am out in public, I try conducting myself with the greatest of care knowing that people are watching. The thing that bothers me the most is that many people have never mastered the ne art of how to dress in public. Some people have never been taught how to dress, let alone how to dress in public. Whenever I go to the mall, and believe me it is as seldom as possible, I cannot help noticing some of these people. What I cannot understand is why young men wear pants too big for them and young women wear pants too small for them. Perhaps we ought to get a little group together and try to reverse this trend. Somebody got the wrong information. I was in the mall the other day and noticed several young men in front of me with trousers several sizes too big and were constantly falling down. One hand was grabbing their trousers while the other hand was hanging onto a cellphone. I wanted to go up and tell them that there is this marvelous new invention called The Belt that would solve the problem that they were having. Once they have The Belt, they can put it on and forget about their trousers falling down to their ankles. If there is anything I do not want to see it is somebodys trouser falling down to their ankles. Criticize me if you want to, but I simply cannot not follow these young men walking down in mall. By the time I cover the space of three stores, I am a nervous wreck, wondering when those trousers are actually going to fall. Young women are no different. It seems to me that most young women purchase their entire wardrobe when they are in the rst grade. At that time, the clothing ts very nicely. By the time these young women hit the 10th grade, those rst-grade clothing are not only out of style, but t no more. Where are their mothers? I know the economy is bad, but really, is it so bad that people cannot afford to upgrade their wardrobe, as they get older and consequently bigger? Shouldnt there be some sale on mirrors these days? If I were a congressman in Washington, D.C., I would work very hard to pass a bill that would make it illegal to walk out of your house on any given morning without rst looking into the mirror to see if everything is covered. That is the kind of change I can believe in. As I get older, it gets more dif cult to conduct myself as a gentleman because there is so much I do not want to see. Last week I had to return an item to a store and was unprepared for what I was to encounter. I assumed I was well prepared for the day. I went through the normal routine of exercising my eyes to look upward. I try my best when I am out in public to look into the eyes of people, especially those of the gentler sex. This particular day I had really met my match. I stood in line waiting to return my item and I was not thinking too much about the process. I was humming to myself some hymn that was on my mind at the time and was not paying attention to the surroundings. As I say, I trained my eyes to look upward when I am out in public. Eventually, it was my turn to go to the counter and return the item. I walked up and was aghast. I said to myself, Look at the eyes, look at the eyes, look at the eyes. For some reason my eyes were not paying any attention whatsoever. All those years of training seem to have gone out the window. My eyes were in a staring mode and I did not know how to break it. It really is not my fault; I think people should take personal responsibility for their person when they go out in public. They should make sure that everything is prim and proper because you never know what you are going to run into in any given day. For a moment, I had forgotten what I was at the counter for, I tried to shift my eyes into a higher level and it was all I could do to communicate what I needed to communicate at the time. But my eyes, oh, my eyes. They certainly were not helping me in this regard. I might as well come clean and confess. As I walked up to the counter to return my item I could not help but notice that the woman behind the counter was wearing, and you will not believe me, a beard. Yes, I said a beard, whiskers and all. I could not believe it at rst. I thought maybe my eyes were trying to get back at me for being so harsh on them the last few months. But no, there in full view of everybody, including my pair of eyes, was a woman with a beard any man would have been proud to wear. All I could think of at the time was what Job said. I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? (Job 31:1 KJV). My motto: be careful, little eyes. where you stare. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 352-687-4240 or email jamessnyder2@att.net.
