District 3 County Commissioner Charles Brock brought up the subject of lowering impact fees at the last commission meeting, and the panel asked Goodman to draw up an ordinance lessening impact fees for residential construction. Brock said the fees are about $1,500, and that is a lot of money for young couples just starting out to have to come up with. The ordinance would not have affected impact fees for commercial construction. During the public hearing portion of the meeting, however, the wisdom of doing away with county revenue, however small, was questioned. I dont think taking away any revenue when the county hasnt given raises in what, six or seven years, is a good idea, said Roger Hagan, county emergency manager. Commissioner Joel Pate agreed. Special to the News After months of practice, Washington County 4-Hs Sure Shots 4-H Club swept the awards at the Florida 4-H State Shotgun Match in March in Polk County.

The parents of Ben McDaniel, a 30-year-old cave diver who went missing after last seen diving in Vortex Spring almost two years ago, rescinded their $30,000 reward for fear of inexperienced divers getting killed in search of their son. This decision was made shortly after the death of 43-year-old Larry Higginbotham last month. Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce reported there was no indication that Higginbotham was in search of McDaniel when he drowned. Marianna Fire Chief Byron Bennett assisted in the dive to recover Higginbothams body and said Brock seeks re-election to BOCC From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Charles Brock announced Tuesday he is seeking re-election to the Washington County Board of County Commissioners District 3 seat.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, April 21, 2012 said. Notably, some of the projects that resulted in enor mous benets for the county have included more efcient and advanced re and medi cal services (establishment of 911), youth recreation im provements (addition of new parks and boat landings), se curing SCOP (Small County Outreach Program) funding for the resurfacing of approxi mately 300 miles of county sec ondary roads, additional road paving through CBG (Com munity Block Grant) fund ing, improved and expanded road and bridge department, implementation of recycling and waste management pro grams, and increased senior citizen services, Brock said. Brock also serves on the Tri-County Board of Direc tors and is an active support er of the Council on Aging. During my tenure as a commissioner, I am especial ly proud of the construction of two new county libraries, servicing all ages, and the continued improvement of health care as a result of the progress made by Northwest Florida Community Hospi tal, Brock said. I want the people to know that the ac complishments achieved dur ing by years of service have not been made alone. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the former and current commissioners and county employees for all their hard work on many projects that have resulted in huge ben ets for our county. I realize that our county has many challenges to face in the years to come, and if we are to remain a great place to live and work, we will need to support our local busi nesses and bring additional jobs to the area, Brock said. I believe my experience, particularly in the areas of governmental regulations and funding allocations, have equipped me with the skills to meet these challenges head on. Brock is a lifelong resi dent of Vernon. He attended Vernon High School and Chipola State College. He has four children, who all live and work in Washington County. He is a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church. I have children and grand children who live in Washing ton County, and I want them to be able to enjoy this great county long after Im gone, Brock said. I have always been a very dedicated com missioner and have worked full time in my elected posi tion. I would like to ask the people of Washington County for their continued support as I begin the process to seek re-election for District 3. rescinding the reward was for the best. There have been a large number of expert divers from this area and all over the country who have searched every nook and cranny and inch of that cave, and unfortunately, we strongly believe that he is not in there, Bennett said. Theres so many people out there today that want to go out there and try to help, and when you get out there in a situation as dangerous as it is in those springs out in Vortex, you dont want to become the next victim. If this passes, I am not voting for any tax increase later, he said. Its just not right. The commissioners voted down the ordinance 3-2. After the vote, Commissioner Todd Abbott said 95 percent of Florida counties had done away with or decreased their impact fees by 75 percent. The subject then was reintroduced as a mo tion to have Goodman come up with a ordinance lowering the impact fees on residential construction. How much would you like it lowered, Mr. Brock? Commis sion Chairman Hulan Carter asked. Fifty percent? Brock said. Abbott also suggested the re duction just be for 12 months. Goodman said he would re write the ordinance and bring it back before the commissioners in May. The commissioners also vot ed to accept a settlement in a 5year-old, multi-lawsuit litigation with the owners of Sikes Sand Mines. As part of the settlement, the board voted to grant a spe cial exception application, which originally had been denied to the mine in 2007. Goodman said once the judge signs off on the settlement, the details of the agreement will be made public. cspears@chipleypaper.com by 2 p.m. May 2.

Aprils Yard of the Month has been awarded to 745 Orange St., the home of Bessie and Jimmy Russ. Bessie has received the award twice before, in 2003 and 2008. In the shade of a giant pecan, she can be seen regularly working in her yard. Recently she added twin beds of multi-colored mini-roses and bright pink petunias along her front entry walk. Bessie does most of the work herself, and her newest project is installing a fountain in the side yard. I enjoy working in my garden; its comforting and relaxing. I do the owers in front, and Jimmy does the vegetables in the back, she said. While chatting on the Russs patio, club members Edwina Showers and Gweneth Collins discovered that Bessies youngest son, Marcus, still has a green spider plant given to him by the garden club seven years ago! The plant is thriving, and Bessie and Marcus have shared its babies with countless friends. Could your yard or your neighbors be a Yard of the Month? There are only two requirements: The yard must be within the city limits of Chipley and lovely to look at. Now is the time to add a few brightly colored annuals such as petunias, marigolds, impatiens and vinca to your ower beds. With a bit of planning, your yard could be the next Yard of the Month. If you would like to recommend a yard or would like more information about Chipley Garden Club, call Karen Roland, club president, at 638-9968.

By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Rick Herme lin is a 71-year-old former Marine, who has made his newest challenge a 100-day, 3,000-mile run from coast to coast on an ElliptiGo to raise money for the Sem per Fi Fund. The Semper Fi Fund is a nonprot fund set up to assist the injured or critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Hermelin began his jour ney at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Is land, S.C., on March 23 and is planning on nishing his journey in 100 days, which will land him at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego on June 30, 2012. Im a former Marine and started in San Diego on March 23, 1959, said Her melin. I served for four years, from 1959 to 1963 as an Aviation Communica tions Technician. Hermelin said that he wanted to stay active and it wasnt long before he got a taste and a passion for running. It took me 35 years, but I achieved my goal of 100 marathons, 100 half-mara thons and 100 10K races, he said. I wasnt done yet, I needed a new goal, I need ed a new challenge. It just so happened that a friend of his had a love for bicycling but could no longer bicycle because of issues with his lower back, so instead he switched to the ElliptiGo, a machine where you stand up strait and peddle. It reduces impact with out taking away from car dio, said Hermelin. He said it wasnt long ago that he heard of a pro gram to raise funds for injured Marines and coin cidently the program was based in San Diego. It wasnt long after that he started talking with the founder of ElliptiGo and former Marine Bryan Pate and soon ElliptiGo became his main sponsor for his newest challenge. Its amazing how every thing fell together, I needed a new challenge, I always wanted to go from coast to coast and now I had wor thy cause and a sponsor, said Hermelin. Im still in awe at how this all worked out. His journey has brought him through so many homes and agencies that are more than willing to help, he said. Ive been hosted by in dividuals, former Marines, stayed with some great families and even some re facilities, said Her melin. Theyve all been so very kind and generous. During his stay in Chi pley he was hosted by The Armstrong House, a min istry of the West Florida Baptist Association. This is a chance for me to meet people, real people, said Hermelin. I couldve stayed in hotels, but as an engineer I know what its like to stay in hotels and you dont meet very many people that way. He said it was impor tant to meet people in or der to spread awareness of the Simper Fi Fund. Hermelin said he set the goal at $10,000. Individuals can track Hermelins route at www.100daysforthecorps. wordpress.com and you can also follow him on Facebook at www.facebook. com/100daysforthecorps. Day by day you can see where I am and its also the fundraiser page to donate, said Hermelin. Anyone can look at my route and if you know anyone who can host me I would be very happy to be their guest, and I make a very good guest. If you know anyone wanting to host Hermelin along his route he can be contacted at rahermelin@ gmail.com.

Saturday, April 21, 2012 Faith Washington County News | A4 In the past week, Ive had the privilege of playing instrumental music twice. In one case, the songs were religious tunes, and in the second case, they were secular classical numbers. Ive always felt an intense spiritual connection to music, so even the nonreligious music left me with a sense of awe. For me, music and art provide very strong points of connection to the Divine. The truth is, nearly any interest can be transformed into something sacred. Opportunities for religious life dont end at the door of ones house of worship. Everyday activities can be turned into spiritual experiences, and that includes hobbies and pastimes. A friend once told me that the most important thing he ever learned from his parents is the importance of cultivating a passion. That passion can be a hobby, sport, philosophy or anything else, as long as it thoroughly captivates your interest. For some people it might be photography, while for others, it could be horse riding, sailing, gardening or computers. Whether you enjoy quilting, golf or writing poetry, these activities can become spiritual experiences. The arts are particularly adaptable to spirituality, as evidenced by the immense global output of sacred art, literature and music. Religion has been responsible for the production of some of the nest art the world has ever known. But if youre not the artistic type, dont worry. Whatever your passion is, it can provide a path to spiritual awareness. Some pursuits naturally lend themselves to religious re ection, while others may require slightly more effort. For instance, if youre into collecting objects, such as stamps or gurines, it might seem like a bit of a stretch to turn it into an opportunity for spiritual re ection. But stop for a moment and imagine what it took to bring these items into your home. Pick up any random piece from your collection, and think about how it provides a direct connection to the hundreds of people who may have handled it before it came into your possession. People conceived of these objects in their minds, made them, packaged them, shipped them, sold them, and may possibly have owned them before you. Right there, you have an incredible chain of human beings to whom you are now connected, simply because you own this item. Many religious teachings involve the realization that all people are interconnected, not only with each other, but with God. Take a moment to wish blessings upon all of these individuals to whom you are now connected, your fellow children of God, the amazing and unique beings whose efforts have resulted in your ownership of this single object. If youre a farmer or gardener, ponder what really goes into every ower, vegetable, fruit or berry that you grow. Nearly everything the farmer or gardener touches is a product of the divine gifts of sunlight and rain. This is also true of livestock. They are also products of both nature and the farmers care. Nature is the handiwork of heaven, and theres nothing as intensely attuned to nature as nurturing plants and animals. Simply watching a seedling push its way through the ground is a religious experience beyond compare. Take a moment to bless the plants, animals and people whose lives are being sustained by your efforts. If your work or hobby involves making products for others, bless those products. It doesnt require a huge ritual. Say a little prayer over them, or even just send your best wishes to whoever receives these items next. It doesnt matter what youre making, whether youre knitting a shawl, working in a furniture factory, or selling someone a hot dog at a convenience store. Somebody will be using these objects, and because of that, you have an automatic connection to them, whether they realize it or not. Envision them as fellow creations of the Almighty, because thats precisely what they are. You are not detached from them. You never were. The trick is to remain mindful of it. If nothing else, just be thankful for the sheer pleasure that you derive from your various activities, whether that pleasure comes from income or the joy experienced while doing them. Dont just go swimming; give thanks for the beautiful water in which youre immersed, the weather, the people with whom youre sharing your time, and the fact that youre healthy enough to be out in the water.

He and mom head into Miss Jesse Foxworths voluntary pre-kindergarten classroom. Within seconds, Miss Jesse greats them with a big welcoming smile, and with a quick kiss goodbye from mom, Aiden heads straight to the colorful carpet for circle time to start his VPK day. Each weekday, more than 250 4and 5-year-olds start their days at one of 24 VPK classrooms across Washington and Holmes counties. I believe VPK helps lay a path for kindergarten, said Tanya Wheeler, Aidens mom. His participation here gives him interaction with other children as well as helps teach him concepts he might not learn at home. Tanya would know; Aiden is her second child to go through VPK. Lynne Eldridge, executive director of the Early Learning Coalition of Northwest Florida, agreed. This environment, with the teachers facilitated support, allows the receptors of the childs brain to perform at their best. What happens when the brain is performing at its best is learning. What makes VPK such an important experience for children is that participating in an early learning program helps the child and family prepare for the transition to formal education, she continued, noting that parents have many different options to choose from when selecting a VPK provider. Private child care centers, faith-based centers and school districts all offer the VPK program. Todays parents have many possibilities and should be able to nd a VPK program that suits their familys needs. VPK is free and available to any child who is 4 on or before Sept. 1, 2012, and resides in the State of Florida. The Early Learning Coalition of Northwest Florida is a nonpro t organization that exists to grow healthy children, parents and the relationship between them. It administers child care resources and referrals, school readiness and voluntary pre-kindergarten programs in a seven-county service area.

Meanwhile, both teachers and parents hoped their children would rise to the challenge and be successful in their academic endeavors. Yet some parents and children might get an unexpected surprise when they receive their FCAT scores. The Florida Department of Education has implemented a change in FCAT scoring designed to address the inequities of the previous version of the FCAT. Superintendent of Schools Sandra Cook took time out to discuss what this means for Washington County students last Thursday at the Chipley Lions Club meeting. Under FCAT 1.0, students scoring a level 3 or 4 in elementary and middle school become a Level 2 in high school when the students performance has not decreased and even when the student makes academic progress. To deal with this issue, FCAT 2.0 has been created. What does FCAT 2.0 mean for student performance? A signi cant portion of students who previously passed FCAT 1.0 will fail FCAT 2.0. This means that those students who fail will need to take remedial courses to bring their scores up in order to graduate. This makes for a busier schedule for students who might be trying to balance school work and extracurricular activities like football or band. So despite the fact that FCAT 2.0 is a more consistent measure of a students academic performance, some sacri ces will be made in order to transition to this new version of the test. Overall, there are three major effects of FCAT 2.0 that will be felt throughout the county: School grades will fall signi cantly; there will be increased costs to school districts because of an increase in the number of remediation classes; and potential elimination of elective courses will be considered in order to accommodate an increase in remediation courses. Cook reminded the audience that lower FCAT test scores do not necessarily indicate that a student learned less this year than in prior years. With hard work on the part of students, parents and educators, this time of change can be less painful. The Chipley Lions Clubs thanks Dr. Cook for bringing this important issue to the group and encourages anyone interested in becoming a member of the club to attend the meetings at noon second and fourth Thursdays at Patillos. Cook speaks about FCAT at Chipley Lions Club meeting RANDAL SEYLER | The News Northwest Florida Community Hospital held an appreciation luncheon April 12 recognizing physicians and associates for their outstanding contributions to the organization and for receiving the Business of the Year award from the Chamber.

Wednesday, APRIL 25 2012 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Panhandle Area Educational Consortium is looking at a $1 million budget cut, thanks to Gov. Rick Scotts 2012-13 state budget, which was signed into law Tuesday. The PAEC was hit with the reduction when the governor vetoed line items in the 69.9 billion state budget, PAEC Executive Director Pat McDaniel said Friday at a news conference in Chipley, but the new budget decreases funding for the states three educational consortia serving rural school districts. He vetoed four different line items, but the two I was concerned about were ones we had been getting for years, McDaniel said. The items were cut with no explanation. The consortium represents rural school districts in Walton, Washington, Holmes, Jackson, Calhoun, Gadsen, Madison, Jefferson, Liberty, Taylor, Wakulla, Franklin and Gulf counties as well as the Florida State University College of Educations developmental research school in Tallahassee. A wide variety of services are provided to rural districts by the consortium, ranging from insurance to teacher training to impact testing for athletes to test for concussions. McDaniel said he was shocked by the cuts. Our budget had cleared the legislative process after careful scrutiny by the House and Senate. I want to believe it was an oversight by someone on the governors staff. The budget contained a billion more education dollars than the 2011-12 budget, in which the state lopped $1.3 billion from education, a fact the governor stressed in a April 17 news release from his of ce. Scott signed the budget while visiting an John Pettis announces bid for sheriff From Staff Reports CHIPLEY John P. Pettis of Chipley announced his candidacy for the of ce of Washington County Sheriff on Thursday. Pettis said he is a sevenyear veteran of law enforcement. Pettis has served as a deputy sheriff, city police of cer, K-9 ofcer, a school resource of cer, a correctional of cer and a eld training ofcer and has performed many untitled duties. He is dual-certi ed in corrections and law enforcement and has worked in both of these areas within the State of Florida, according to a news release. Pettis has received countless hours of communitybased training and said he is always on the lookout for more ways of enhancing his skills and establishing professional relationships with others in the national, state and local law enforcement communities to better serve our county. The Pettis family name has been in Washington County for seven generations. Pettis has been a lifelong resident and was raised along with his brother, David Jr., by David and Cindy of Chipley. He attended elementary and high school in Chipley. He is married to Ashley and has two children, Rural schools face PAEC budget cuts Possum Festival TDC grant approved By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY There might be a few more possums for the grill this summer, now that the Washington County Tourist Development Council has approved a $2,000 grant for the Wausau Possum Festival and Pageant. The council voted unanimously to approve the festival for $2,000 during Mondays meeting. The city had requested $2,500, but the council had budgeted the festival for only $1,500. Wausau town clerk Margaret Riley told the council the grant request included money for the festivals pageant, which had not sought advertising funds from the TDC in the past. This is the last year the festival is eligible for TDC grants, council member Ted Everett said. Council member Mary Richmond asked Riley for assurances the festival of cials would use wristbands 1st Amendment Foundation: Vernon Council might have violated law By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Vernon City Council possibly violated Floridas Sunshine Law Monday night by going into an open-ended executive session. The councils new mayor, Michelle Cook, and new council member Oscar Ward, were to be briefed on pending litigation the city faced, so City Attorney Kerry Adkison called for an executive session following the regular council meeting. Before the council going into executive session, Adkison said the panel would not come out following the session to reconvene and conclude the executive session, as required under Florida law. The statute that allows the closed meeting provides, among other things, that At the conclusion of the attorney-client session, the meeting shall be reopened and the person chairing the meeting shall announce the termination of the session, said Jon Kaney, general counsel for the First Amendment Foundation, based in Tallahassee, in an email Tuesday morning. What happened here violates this statute. The courts have held that a closed meeting that does not strictly comply with this statute violates the Sunshine Law, Kaney said. It looks like this was a violation. Among other consequences, that violation makes the transcript a public record immediately. The First Amendment Foundation is a private, nonpartisan, nonpro t organization dedicated to JOHN PETTIS CATHRINE LAMB | The News More than 600 students from Holmes and Washington counties were at Falling Waters State Park on Friday for the ninth annual Legends & Lore Festival.

Local A2 | Washington County News Landen and Adrian. He said he is proud of his roots in this county and the family that made him what he is today. I grew up here, my fami ly is here, my roots are here. I went to school, church and found my rst job here, then I got lucky enough to marry a girl from close by and we agreed to live here. I love America, and I know it is not too late for us to change to be more realistic about our lives, our government and our future. I like and respect the people of our communi ty. I enjoy talking and listen ing to people. I still believe in the creed of To Protect and Serve, Pettis said. With everything going on today, sometimes we forget our job as law en forcement ofcers is to pro tect and serve the people to make them feel safe at work, in their school, raising their children, shopping in our community and going to church in safety, he said. I also believe in customer service, and like you, I want to be treated with respect; regardless if I am a Demo crat, a Republican, whether I am rich or poor, black or white, I simply want fair and equal treatment. This is one of the main reasons I chose to run as a No Party Af liate candidate, to take the politics out of the sheriffs department; to bring back a time where anyone, at any time, could express their concerns and issues know ing there would not be any kind of political pressure or repercussions. Every county has weak nesses in its government, but these are weaknesses we can turn into strengths. Unfortunately, we are living in a time where our econo my has suffered, and so has our county. We see it in every phase of our daily lives. With continual cuts in funding, balancing the administra tive and operational budgets with less money has become a huge challenge. One thing I fully understand it is not the sheriffs money; its our money, and Ill tell you right now, every dollar I spend will be spent wisely and only after all other options have been reviewed. Pettis said he will save the taxpayers of Washing ton County money with just some simple in-house ad justments that will redirect patrols and deputies to criti cal areas of the county when they are needed and still provide more protection. It boils down to the fact that we need to be more ef cient. We need to take an honest look at our call for service load and reallocate deputies to those areas where it best serves our county at any given time, Pettis said. We also need to make lowor no-cost inter nal administrative improve ments within the sheriffs ofce, so our deputies can spend more time on the road. One good way to ac complish this is to seek your input through a Sheriffs Vol unteer Advisory Council and monitor trends in crimes and then (come) together make improvement in our services and community programs. If ever you need me, I will make the time, Ill be there, Pettis said. I am committed to Washington County. I want a true opendoor and open-mind policy for every citizen. Ill keep the public informed on the actions of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and be held accountable for my actions as well as the ac tions of my deputies. Look ing forward, my biggest goal is to make every citizens of Washington County proud of their Sheriffs Ofce. Be cause after all is said and done, its not about making promises, its about produc ing results. To contact Pettis, go to www.Facebook.com/john pettis162 or www.Facebook. com/John PettisforSheriff, or call his cellphone at 8966859. If your club, social group, homeowners asso ciation, private organization, community group or church would like ask questions about his views or his vision for the sheriffs department, Pettis said he would be more than happy to listen to your comments and concerns at any time.

The intention of con sortiums is to share ser vices and pool resources to achieve savings across the district, and Lane Wright, the governors press secre tary, said the governors of ce agrees with those inten tions in an email on Friday. School districts already have funds available from the Florida Education Fi nance Program to take care of the types of expenses they were requesting be funded through the consortium, Wright said. The services offered by the consortium are things that can and should be paid from those district funds. The PAEC is denitely a resource for all of us, said Dr. Sandra Cook, superinten dent of Washington County School District and chair person of the PAEC board of directors. The bottom line is our children are going to be impacted by this. PAEC, the North East Florida Educational Con sortium and the Heartland Educational Consortium collectively represent 35 ru ral school districts and more than 150,000 students by providing teacher training, teacher certication track ing, grant applications, risk management, cooperative purchasing, Race to the Top initiatives and a variety of other essential services the districts otherwise would have difculty performing, according to a news release from the PAEC. The three consortia lost at total of $1,445,000 in the budget cuts, McDaniel said. McDaniel said the PAEC was a great model of how to save the government money. Through the consortia, rural districts do not have to spend money hiring specialists or sending teachers to expen sive in-service training. The state average cost for in-service training is $185 per hour, McDaniel said. Through the PAEC, the average cost per hour for in-service training is $12.50. When multiplied by the num ber of in-service hours com pleted since 2001, just more than 2 million, PAEC shows savings of $350,554,500 in inservice hours alone. The PAEC was created in 1967 for one purpose, to save the state time and money, McDaniel said. We are a solid return on the states investment, he said. We know without a doubt we make a difference for our districts. The budget reduction primarily will affect the consortiums overhead and salaries, McDaniel said. The consortium could be forced to lay off employees. PAEC has 57 employees, McDaniel said. The board of directors has not yet come up with a plan for making up for the budgetary decit, but they are putting their heads to gether to look for solutions. Cook said the recent mandate from the state that districts implement teacher and principal evaluations is a good example of a service the PAEC provides. I dont have an R&D team in Washington Coun ty, Cook said. We depend on the PAEC to help come up with tools we need to meet these mandates. This is very disturbing to us. I dont have the person nel to do in-service train ing, said Tommy McClellan, superintendent of Calhoun County School District. Our district has seen $1 million in budget cuts over the past three years. McClellan said the PAEC offers superintendents a forum to get resources and share information. Its like a family reunion, he said of the consortiums monthly meetings. We depend on each other, and we depend on the PAEC.

Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Since we are getting into election season and the announcements of candidates for various of ces are starting to roll in, I thought Id take a minute and give a Newspaper Article 101 tutorial in this weeks column. Ive already gotten several announcements, and I have had several candidates promise forthcoming announcements. What I mean by announcement is an article about 300 to 500 words long saying John Brown is running for county dog catcher, followed by a few paragraphs about John Brown and why he would be the best dog catcher ever, John Browns life history, his family tree and then a nal paragraph saying again why he is the best thing since hot chocolate. Most of the self-generated announcements have been ne, while some that have been written by a third party for candidates have lacked some basic information. Normally I would contact the candidate to get the missing information, but part of the missing information I needed was a way to contact the person, such as a phone number. So Rule No. 1 include contact information in case we need to call you back for more information. Normally this isnt a problem; most people who email, fax or drop off announcements to us have that information available. Rule No. 1 also applies to any announcement you bring us here at the paper, not just candidate announcements. Though I am mainly speaking about political announcements, the formula pretty much holds true for any kind of announcement you might care to send in to the paper. Most people know the Five Ws and One H rule Who, What, When, Where, Why and How but you would be surprised how often we see these basic building blocks left out of press releases. If you are submitting an article announcing the churchs upcoming potluck supper or the high school bands next concert, then the ve Ws are pretty much all you need to tell us. For example, The High School Bands (who) spring concert (what) will be at 5 p.m. Tuesday (when) at the high school cafeteria (where). The concert is a fundraiser for the bands trip to the Rose Bowl (why). How gets a little complicated and usually doesnt make it into basic news releases. In fact, usually its the how that gets journalists in trouble when they try to explain things normal humans arent meant to understand, like nuclear physics, rocket science or why anybody over the age of 14 would go to a Twilight movie. How is good to put in your press release if you are running for of ce although mainly the how should be focused on how you are going to make things better, or different. Unless youre running for president, you dont want to focus on how bad a person your opponent is its better to focus on what is your applicable experience and how would you bring that experience to your new of ce. Which brings us to Rule No. 2 write as much as you want, and well chop it down to t. Its much better to overwrite than underwrite, especially on political announcements. Include your family, profession, education, church af liation, political experience (if any), political af liation (if it matters), your opinion on how you can do the job better than the guy whos doing it now, just go crazy. If you write a short and sweet announcement, that is great, too, but be sure to give us the contact information (see Rule No. 1). Incidentally, you dont have to run for of ce to write an article for either the Washington County News or the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. If you have an interesting hobby, job or family history, feel free to write about it. If you send us something and it doesnt get published within a week or so, be sure to check with us to make sure we actually received it (especially if it was sent via email) and to make sure we havent forgotten about it. As you might guess, we get a lot of email and snail mail each week, and sometimes things fall through the cracks. Also always ll out the subject line on your email. If we get no-subject emails, a lot of times they are treated as spam if you put Attention Randal or Attention Cecilia in the subject head it helps us know its not a spam. If it is a local article, we want to publish it. And if we cant t it all in the newspaper, well put it online for sure (especially if it involves a lot of photos). If you have any questions about writing a news article or press release, feel free to give me a call at 638-0212 or drop me an email at rseyler@chipleypaper.com. When the 1944 Vernon High School graduating class met for its 68th anniversary reunion on April 21 at Baileys Surf and Turf in Chipley, one more place at the banquet table was empty. We lost our classmate Audrey Blocker Taunton on Jan. 15, 2012. Her graveside funeral service was held at Piney Grove Freewill Baptist Church on Jan. 19 with a host of family, her church family and friends in attendance. Her pastor, the Rev. Robert Stevens of the Southport Assembly of God Church, of ciated at the last rites. Classmate Frederick Kolmetz joined Hester and me in representing our graduating class at her funeral. Audrey Blocker was born Sept. 23, 1924, in Washington County to Leander and Loney Webb Blocker. She rode the Wausau school bus to Vernon School with Gordon Mercer and, later, Jack Haddock as drivers. She is remembered by her class members as quiet in demeanor, but faithful to attend reunions each time they were held. Audrey married a Mr. King soon after graduation. They had two sons, Gary King of Clearwater and Frank King and wife, Lila, of Tallahassee. After the rst husbands death, she married a Mr. Taunton, a widower in Southport who had a young daughter, Miriam, and two small sons, Michael and Asa. It has been the writers privilege to know the stepchildren, all of whom speak highly and lovingly of their stepmother, Audrey. All were in attendance at her funeral. Last year at our reunion, we reported the deaths of two classmates occurring since we last met, Myrelle Brock Simmons and Archie L. Cook. Down through the years, our In Memoriam list has grown to 22 with 15 in the Surviving Class Members listing. Shortly after our rst class reunion in 1964, classmate Allee Whidden was killed in a traf c accident in Pascagoula, Miss. Next to pass away was Mildred Farmer Ward. Added to the number down through the years were Eva Finch, Oakley Hightower, Martha Talbot, Ruby Ann Jones Bill, Ida Frances Kelley Hunter, Johnnie B. Walsingham, Catherine Dietz Humphrey, Hilda Hightower Mullin, Ruby Brock Gale, Jacqueline Burdeshaw Donaldson, Pauline Davis Perkins, Tommie Lee Dunn Kolmetz, Joe E. Pate, Veston Newsom, Helen Owens Wray, Ellafair Walsingham Hess and Lorene Jenkins Sanders. All were remembered with a keen sense of loss and fond memories of their lives. Seven surviving class members attended this landmark celebration of our 68th anniversary. Hurdis Brock was accompanied by his wife, Sal, and his brother, Bill, and wife, Betty. Frederick Kolmetz had his wife, Nadine, with him. Frances Shores Fussell would win the prize for the most guests. Coming with her were husband, Julius, son Johnny and wife, Teresa, along with their two sons, Clint and Kevin, and daughter Mary and husband, Terry Driggers. Thomas Knight, who experienced a serious accident in his home two years ago, introduced his guests, wife, Lorraine, brother Robbie Knight and wife, Luverne, and sisterin-law Elaine Knight. He also reported the death of George Wray, husband of classmate Helen Owens Wray, who died three years ago. Emma Lou Chesser Tew was escorted by her daughters, Sharon and Nancy. Bill McFatter presented his guests, his cousin, Neil D. Blue Jr. and wife, Libby. Neils father, Neil D. Blue, as superintendent of schools of Washington County in 1944, signed and presented the diplomas for our class. Neils mother was Ovie McFatter, thus making him kin to that family as well as Blues and Brocks. Bill McFatter also reported on his sister, our classmate Carol McFatter Hudson, who was physically unable to attend. Myrtle Haddock Guy, who left the class before graduation, presented her son, James Guy, wife, Naomi, Angeleigh Donaldson, and daughterinlaw, John Guy. Gary and Janice Hewett came as representatives of his sister and our long-time class secretary, Estelle Hewett Scott, who had to cancel plans for attending because of medical problems. Shyne Marley, Carl Hightower, Trudell Brock Worthington and Luverne Chestnut Mizell are experiencing physical maladies that prevented their attendance. The common theme of the upbeat expressions coming from the speakers were consistent in expressing thanksgiving for our longevity of life and the bond for friendship that has prevailed among our number for so many years. Class members and visitors alike seemed in a high-spirited, jovial mood and were hesitant to depart once the assembly was dismissed. The consensus among our number seemed to be lets do it again next year, same time same place. The prattler, also the presiding master of ceremonies, responded simply, Do nothing till you hear from me! The benediction was expressed by Frederick Kolmetz. See you all next week. Country needs to address major concerns Dear Editor, Everybody would like to have health care. The only problem is the cost of everything is out of sight. When you pay $10 for a Tylenol tablet or $400 for a blood test, it is a little high. I can go on I think you get the idea why a lot of people do not have medical insurance. The hospitals and the money you pay for prescriptions do not make any sense at all. I call it a license to steal. I think they should be stopped from stealing from everybody. I want to know if the ObamaCare goes through, how are they going to provide medical help for everyone? Social Security and Medicaid already are having problems helping everybody they have now. If they put everybody on ObamaCare, they have to get money from somewhere. I know I wouldnt want to pay higher taxes because of it. I think everybody pays too much now. Why? So they can have parties and go to Las Vegas at out expense again. I also noticed lately on TV there are talk show hosts and even people in Washington, D.C., who have a problem with name-calling. The main target is a woman in general. Calling Sarah Palin obscene names. Saying bad things about her children. There were other women also. I think it is rude and arrogant. Where are all the womens groups that are supposed to stand up for you? I guess they are scared to stand up for anyone. If that is the case, they should stay home and knit or something else. We should not have to be insulted and not do anything about it. This country is not standing up for our rights. We are getting weaker all the time. Another thing about the cross. I cant believe they are trying to pass a law you are not allowed to wear one. Where do they get off even thinking of a thing like that? I would like to know what pinheads are trying to pass that kind of law. What happened to freedom of speech in the country? I think it is going down the toilet with everything else going on. We are losing all of our rights slowly but surely. I feel like I am in Russia, not the USA. What happened to the majority vote? Well I know it is really a mess, and I sure hope somebody does something right soon. If they dont, we will be in the toilet real quick.

R AI N O R S H I NE C A R B UY I NG MA DE SIMP LE Campaign raising money for Chipola Center for the Arts Special to The News CHIPLEY The regular weekly meeting of the Chipley Kiwanis Club was called to order by President Vince Spencer on April 17. Program chairman Paul Goulding introduced guest speakers Bryan Craven, director of public relations for Chipola College, and Tonya Pippin of the Washington County Arts Council, who with Jim Ackerman serves on the APPLAUSE! committee and spearheads fundraising efforts locally to bene t Chipolas new Center for the Arts scheduled to open in September. Pippin said opportunities to create a legacy that bears your name or the name of a family member, friend, someone special, a company or community organization now are available through the APPLAUSE! campaign. Donors have four options. The rst is to donate any amount to the general fund. For those who wish to provide general support of less than $150 to the Chipola Center for the Arts, this may be done by sending a check payable to Chipola College Foundation to Chipola College Foundation, 3094 Indian Circle, Marianna, FL 32446. The names of general support donors will be listed in the Centers opening night program. The Be Seated option allows donors to have their name on a plaque behind an orchestra seat for $250 or a balcony seat plaque for $150. The Be A Star option provides a memorable long-lasting gift with a star that bears your name or organization on a star mounted permanently on the Be A Star Wall in the lobby of the main theatre. Gold stars are $2,500, Silver Stars $1,500 and Bronze Stars $500. Detailed information about the Be Seated and Be A Star Options is at www.chipola.edu/center-for-the-arts, or you may request a brochure by calling 718-2277. With Legacy Initiatives, donors can have their name on a number of spaces in the theatre, from a dressing room for $10,000 to the main theatre for $1 million. Opportunities for Legacy contributions may be secured in the form of a direct gift, securities, a matching gift, a planned bequest, a deferred gift, a multi-year pledge or a combination of these resources. For information about speci c Legacy Initiatives, contact Dr. Gene Prough, president of Chipola College, at 7182288 proughg@chipola.edu The funds raised through this campaign will go to continuing and expanding the departments educational offerings and programs. Pippin said with more funding, the Fine Arts Department could book bigger artists and underwrite annual educational programs that serve more than 6,000 K-12 schoolchildren in the Chipola District, which includes Washington and Holmes counties. Without this seed money, many local schoolchildren might not experience the arts. Pippin, Craven and the APPLAUSE! committee announce that the Chipola Center for the Arts belongs to the entire community. Everyone in the community from Chipola College students, K-12 schoolchildren to parents and grandparents can be part of the center by participating in the APPLAUSE! campaign.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Be proactive to avoid animal pests By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission Most wildlife keeps plenty of distance between themselves and humans. However, when homeowners leave pet food outside or garbage unsecured, some species of wildlife will move in and help themselves. And, therein lies a problem. Some months Ill handle 100 to 200 calls about nuisance wildlife, said Corey Wigginton, a wildlife assistance biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Wigginton is a Mississippi State University graduate and works out of the FWCs Northwest Regional of ce in Panama City. He is one of ve FWC staff around the state who help the public on a daily basis with nuisance wildlife problems. Everyone enjoys seeing wildlife but the best way to avoid nuisance issues is to never let them start in the rst place, he said. If you have outside dogs or cats, after feeding your pets, bring in their food dishes or lock them away. Leaving dishes outside with food can and will attract raccoons, opossums, fox, skunks and even coyotes. When it comes to black bears, Wigginton said anything that attracts smaller mammals also will attract bears. He said more than half of the calls he receives about bears involve unsecured garbage, but includes bears going after bird seed and barbecue grills. We all know bears have expanded in numbers and occupy most of their habitat. If you know bears are anywhere around, be proactive and dont leave out unsecured garbage or other things for bears to get into, he said. Wigginton said some garbage service providers in Northwest Florida provide their customers bear-proof garbage cans, albeit for a small monthly fee, and even bearproof Dumpsters at some businesses. If obtaining a bear-proof can isnt feasible, he said the FWC provides instructions on its website on how to retro t most garbage cans for $12 to $14 that will keep out most bears. He said the materials are available at hardware stores. He said another option for homeowners experiencing problems with bears getting into garbage is to build a bear caddy. A bear caddy is a small four-sided structure with a roof, built of treated wood and large enough to hold one or two garbage cans. Wigginton said there is considerable information on the commissions website on a variety of nuisance wildlife problems. He said anyone needing more information or assistance should call 850-265-3676. If you own an iPhone or Droid, it just might save you some money someday while fishing. How many times have you caught a fish and wondered if it the legal length or how it was measured or even what kind of fish it was? Technology to the rescue. We are all familiar with all the applications we can put on our phones. Phones hardly are used to talk on any more. They take better pictures and movies than most cameras, more people text on phones than talk and the different applications are mind boggling. When I was at the outdoor show at Fort Walton Beach a few months ago, I went by the U.S. Game and Fish booth and picked up a post card with an application decal on it. Not knowing what it was all about, I scanned it into my phone. What came up was the neatest bit of information I could want, and it was free. It gave me all the fish that could be caught in federal waters, the size limits, the bag limits, the seasons they could be caught and regulation remarks. Lets say you are snapper fishing in federal waters and you catch a rudder fish and want to know if it has a bag limit and how big it has to be. All you have to do is go to banded rudder fish, and it will show you a picture of a banded rudder fish so you cant mistake the fish you caught. It tells you the size limit is 14 to 22 inches minimum to the fork length slot limit. It also tells you the bag limit is five fish aggregate, excluded from 20 reef fish aggregate. It also tells you there is no season on this fish. All the fish you could catch in federal waters are included in this application and it is free. The application for Florida state waters including all the Gulf States isnt free. It will cost you about $7, which isnt much compared to a fine. It contains all the information the federal application does, and it does so for every state bordering the Gulf, but only for saltwater fish. If you go to another state you never should be blindsided because you didnt know the rules. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Cobia are on the move along Gulf Coast By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission They quite often are called ling, but cobia are found along the Gulf Coast in the spring and are one of the hardest ghting and besteating game sh anglers catch. Beginning typically in March and extending into April, cobia move north along the Gulf Coast as water temperatures approach 68 to 70 degrees. Sometimes it will be single sh, but other times as many as four to ve of the torpedo-shaped sh cruise along several feet beneath the surface. During the annual cobia run, hundreds of vessels cruise off the shoreline looking for migrating sh. You usually can spot these vessels by their prominent ling towers, which the anglers use to spot sh. It is common for sh to weigh 30 to 50 pounds, but they can exceed 100 pounds. In fact, the Florida record is a 130-pound, 1ounce cobia caught off Destin in 1997. For some reason, there are years when large numbers of cobia make their westward trek close to shore, usually just off the second sandbar. Other years, anglers report seeing them farther offshore, sometimes 4 to 5 miles out. Regardless, they are typically a sh that anglers sight cast to with either large jigs or live eels. Sometimes, cobia are found following large rays or underneath oating objects in the Gulf, such as sargassum mats. During the late spring and summer months, cobia are commonly caught by anglers shing wrecks and other deepwater structure, such as vessels, towers and bridge structure. Good live baits on such structure are blue runners (hardtail), pin sh and cigar minnows. When it comes to taste, cobia are avorful and unique. Sometimes called lemon sh for their taste, the white meat lends itself well to broiling, frying or baking. In Florida waters, cobia must measure at least 33 inches fork length to count as a legal sh. Under FWC rules, recreational anglers are limited to one cobia per day, with a maximum of six sh per vessel.

Local Washington County News | A7 for admission purposes and collect ZIP codes from visitors so the TDC will have data following the event on attendance and hometown information on the visitors. This data is not just important for the council, but it is important for the festival, Richmond said. Riley said the festival ofcials would do a better job this year of controlling and documenting admission to the festival, which will be Aug. 4. Wausau also will seek a grant from the TDC for the Wausau Possum Classic Archery Tournament, Everett said, but the grant application was not submitted in time for Mondays meeting. Riley said the archery event has been rescheduled until September, and she would submit the grant request for the tournament by the next meeting. In other business, the council approved the Dixie Baseball World Series Memorandum of Understanding. A local group is trying to host the 2014 Dixie Baseball World Series in Chipley and is seeking the TDCs help. One of the requirements of the council was that the baseball group become incorporated as a nonpro t organization, and that has been accomplished, council secretary Jim Town said. This action allows the group to move forward with submitting its bid for the world series tournament, and the city should know later this year if the event will indeed be coming to Chipley, Town said. The council also accepted the resignation of Amy Sweeney from the council. The panel is now down by two members. Everett said Heather Lopez, the Chambers administrative assistant, had contacted motel operators in the town and invited them to Mondays meeting, hoping to nd some prospective council meetings, but none of the business owners attended the meeting. The council also changed the date of Mays meeting to May 21 to avoid con ict with the Memorial Day holiday.

Tune in a support Christopher in this special accomplishment. By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Denny Hamlin came around Martin Truex Jr. for the lead and the win with only 31 laps to go in Sundays STP 400 in Kansas. Martin Truex Jr. lead four times during the race for a total of 173 laps. Even though he couldnt hold it, he still managed to nish better than he ever has at Kansas by nishing second. Denny Hamlin was just having a better day. Jeff Gordon was black agged on lap 246 for not maintaining a safe speed on the track and a lap later took his car to the garage for the remainder of the race. This penalty didnt come before he was have engine trouble anyway on lap 238. I believe the best line I ever heard was from one of the MRN Broadcasters when Truex was on A.J. Allmendinger for the lead and he said that Truex was on Allmendinger like a rottweiler on a rump roast. Kurt Busch had a rst of his Sprint Cup career on Sunday; he raced without a main sponsor on his Phoenix Racing number 51. This was the last race that was run on the Kansas track in its current state. Repaving of the track began as Denny Hamlin pulled on to Victory Lane. The banking will go from being 15 degrees all the way around the track to being 17 degrees on the low side and 20 degrees up along the wall. With only two cautions I would have to say that this was not the best race I have seen. I am sure there are many more of you out there that have the same views on this as I do, without all the accidents this sport has become somewhat of a drag. What is all of that safety equipment for if the new rules keep them from needing them? Lets not get off on that I only have so much room here in the paper. We will see if the new rules hinder the action at Talladega. There were four green ag stops that the drivers had to take for gas, tires, etc., these stops were caused by the lack of cautions in the race. The rst of these green ag stops came on laps 43 to 48. Caution on came early on lap 52 when Clint Bowyer spun out in turn four. Then in lap 58 Bowyer and Kyle Busch made contact but both stayed out on the track and there was no caution. Bowyer made it to lap 71 before NASCAR inspectors notices smoke coming from the right front of his car. Lap 76 started the bad luck for the drivers as A.J. Allmendinger reported problems with his engine. Kevin Harvick started reporting that he was running out of gas and started a round of green ag stops that lasted from lap 90 to lap 100. Caution two, the last caution of the race, came when the drivers started reporting debris on the track on lap 132. Bowyers car had nally had enough I guess and the engine blew on lap 139 and he took the car to the garage on lap 140. Laps 177183 brought on the third round of green ag stops. The four laps later on lap 187, after all those drivers had to make the green ag stops, Juan Montoya hit the wall, fortunately not ticking off to many of the drivers, NASCAR didnt call a caution. Ryan Newman brought his car on to Pit Road on lap 196 with troubles. Then on lap 215 Tony Stewart rubbed the wall but stayed out on the track to nish the race. The fourth and nal round of green ag stops came on laps 220-233. On lap 244 one of the drivers started reporting oil on the track. NASCAR Of cials looked and said the track was clear.

Knowingly violating the law is a misdemeanor in the second degree. Adkison did not return a call to his of ce Tuesday morning before press deadline for the Washington County News. In other business, Ward made a motion to increase the speed limit on Church Street from 15 to 25 miles per hour. Church Street has been the source of numerous complaints about speeding, with the council considering placing speed bumps on the street during a February meeting. The city ultimately found the speed bumps to be too expensive. The motion to increase the speed limit died because of a lack of a second. The council also approved surrendering the title of a 1990 Ford truck, sold to Josh Newsome in 2010. The city and Newsome had been at odds because of the trucks mechanical issues, said City Clerk Dian Hendrix. The truck had a blown motor, and Newsome had never paid the nal $100 owed on the truck, she said. The city decided at a workshop to go ahead and relinquish the title.

From Staff Reports CHIPLEY More than 2,000 visitors to Falling Waters State Park were transported back in time during the Legends & Lore festival, held Friday and Saturday at the park. On Friday, the rain held off as hundreds of students from Washington and Holmes counties visited the booths and got a taste of living history. Park of cials welcomed 629 schoolchildren and 1,087 general admission visitors on Friday for the historical happenings. Bad weather on Saturday curtailed a bit of the action, but area residents supported the park, said Amy Sweeney, program director for Friends of Falling Waters Park. It went great, and our fundraising went quite well, she said. Despite the threat of rain, we had a real good turnout. Attractions at the event included live cannon re with civil war re-enactors, blacksmiths, quilters, a cracker cowboy, gristmills, candle makers, int knappers, butter makers, a wild West shootout and much more. Many crafters and artisans were in attendance, and some of the unique artistic creations found throughout the festival included chainsaw carvings, basket weavers, paintings and jewelry. Animals were a hit with the children, including cows, goat, chicken and a few other animals from the farm. There were also venomous snakes and an alligator on display for visitors. Falling Waters State Park was opened on March 26, 1962, and to commemorate its 50th anniversary, there will be a plaque dedicated to the last 50 years as the park looks toward a promising future. This event over the years has been supported by the community, including major support from the Washington County Tourist Development Council and Community South Credit Union. Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of Legends & Lore, Sweeney said, adding, We hope to make it even bigger and better. Wednesday, APRIL 25 2012 Washington, make it even bigger and better.

Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 While ligament tears can cause serious setbacks in an athletes career, a similar in jury can mean surgery and rehabilitation for your frisky kitty or romping Rover. According to Dr. Sha ron Kerwin, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Bio medical Sciences, anterior cruciate ligament tears or cranial cruciate ligament injuries, as they are re ferred to in animals, occur almost as often as they do in humans. Cats and dogs have the same ligaments that we have in our knees, says Kerwin. The cruciate liga ment stabilizes your femur and your tibia so you dont get too much motion be tween those two bones. CCL tears in cats often occur the same way ACL tears occur in humans. Of ten, there is some traumat ic injury that occurs as a result of jumping from high places, playing or getting the animals leg caught in something. It takes a fair bit of force to rupture a cruciate ligament, and it tends to occur more often in over weight cats, says Kerwin. However, in dogs, this injury is often the result of a chronic degeneration of the ligament and occurs much more frequently than it does in cats. In dogs, we think the injury may be related to weight and body structure, meaning that some large breeds such as Rottwei lers, Labradors and Chow Chows, may be predisposed to CCL injuries, said Ker win. In some cases, we think its either the shape of their tibia or the shape of their femur that predispos es them to this injury. A ruptured ligament is usually characterized by limping or inactivity. In cats, they will not want to play the way they used to, and dogs will often appear lame and sit awkwardly with their leg sticking out, signaling a possible knee problem. Kerwin says if your pet shows signs of an injured leg, schedule an ap pointment with your veteri narian who will conduct a lameness exam in order to diagnose the problem. The injury is often treat ed in cats with medical management by placing overweight cats on a strict diet with exercise restric tion for three to six weeks, followed by a check-up measuring progress. If the injury fails to heal, surgery is often recommended to explore and stabilize the joint. But when dogs are af icted with CCL injuries, many times the best option is surgery as quickly as possible. Dogs often dont do well with medical manage ment, the injury will often worsen over time as the ar thritis in the knee builds, explains Kerwin. Part of the problem is they tend to suffer cartilage tears that we dont often see in cats, so we recommend explor ing the knee and cleaning it through an arthroscopy just like they would do in a human and then stabilizing it. Dogs often require 812 weeks of recovery in cluding strict rest and rehabilitation. Once your pet has undergone the recom mended period of exercise restriction, it is important to encourage it to exer cise its leg with slow leash walks or through playtime activities. The biggest way to prevent CCL tears is to keep your pet at a proper weight, Kerwin says. It is very easy for ani mals to gain weight, espe cially if they spend most of their time indoors, because they do not get the same level of exercise. Your vet erinarian can advise you on the proper weight for your dog or cat. ABOUT PET TALK Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sci ences, Texas A&M Univer sity.

This Message Courtesy of Wanting More Than Your Fair Share The Greek word pleonexia means greed or cov etousness. And, the acts of greed and covetousness are found frequently in the New Testament. Plato and Aristotle used the word to mean wanting more than your fair share, and Aristotle suggested that all injustice is a form of pleonexia. In Platos Republic, one of the dialogues participants, Thrasymachus, says that pleonexia is the natural state of man, and Thrasymachus view that might makes right. Re cently, some have suggested that the economic and social woes seen around the world can be traced to people, and nations, wanting more than their fair share. Both individuals and groups can be guilty of wanting too much. Wanting to live in a house that is bigger than you can afford is wanting too much, but so is thinking that everyone in your country should be able to retire at the age of 50 or 55 with down to what is the fair share that everybody should pay. Knowing exactly what your fair share is can be readily gave and expected little in return. Take heed, and beware of all covetousness;for a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.

From your children, Pat, Jack and Sam Two block ad Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Page 4 By THE REV. JAMES L SNYDER It is not that ignorance is so bad; it is just so inconvenient. Case in point. A while back, I found a coupon in the mail for two free nights in Daytona Beach. Look, my dear, I squealed, with delight to my wife, We have two free nights in Daytona Beach. Immediately we checked our calendars and selected a time when we could take advantage of our windfall, without running into all those spring-breakers at the beach. Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I nished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terri c and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goo ng off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just ne, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I rst walked in. I focused on the menu. As I Looked up from the menu, I was shocked to the core from what I saw. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the oor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume t quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not t. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order nally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magni ed in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal. The Rev. James L.

Rick Scotts 2012-13 state budget, which was signed into law Tuesday. The PAEC was hit with the reduction when the governor vetoed line items in the 69.9 billion state budget, PAEC Executive Director Pat McDaniel said Friday at a news conference in Chipley, but the new budget decreases funding for the states three educational consortia serving rural school districts. He vetoed four different line items, but the two I was concerned about were ones we had been getting for years, McDaniel said. The items were cut with no explanation. The consortium represents rural school districts in Walton, Washington, Holmes, Jackson, Calhoun, Gadsen, Madison, Jefferson, Liberty, Taylor, Wakulla, Franklin and Gulf counties as well as the Florida State University College of Educations developmental research school in Tallahassee. A wide variety of services are provided to rural districts by the consortium, ranging from insurance to teacher training to impact testing for athletes to test for concussions. McDaniel said he was shocked by the cuts. Our budget had cleared the legislative process after careful scrutiny by the House and Senate. I want to believe it was an oversight by someone on the governors staff. The budget contained a billion more education dollars than the 2011-12 budget, in which the state lopped $1.3 billion from education, a fact the governor stressed in a April 17 news release from his of ce. Scott signed the budget while visiting an John Pettis announces bid for sheriff From Staff ReportsCHIPLEY John P. Pettis of Chipley announced his candidacy for the of ce of Washington County Sheriff on Thursday. Pettis said he is a sevenyear veteran of law enforcement. Pettis has served as a deputy sheriff, city police of cer, K-9 ofcer, a school resource of cer, a correctional of cer and a eld training ofcer and has performed many untitled duties. He is dual-certi ed in corrections and law enforcement and has worked in both of these areas within the State of Florida, according to a news release. Pettis has received countless hours of communitybased training and said he is always on the lookout for more ways of enhancing his skills and establishing professional relationships with others in the national, state and local law enforcement communities to better serve our county. The Pettis family name has been in Washington County for seven generations. Pettis has been a lifelong resident and was raised along with his brother, David Jr., by David and Cindy of Chipley. He attended elementary and high school in Chipley. He is married to Ashley and has two children, Rural schools face PAEC budget cutsPossum Festival TDC grant approvedBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY There might be a few more possums for the grill this summer, now that the Washington County Tourist Development Council has approved a $2,000 grant for the Wausau Possum Festival and Pageant. The council voted unanimously to approve the festival for $2,000 during Mondays meeting. The city had requested $2,500, but the council had budgeted the festival for only $1,500. Wausau town clerk Margaret Riley told the council the grant request included money for the festivals pageant, which had not sought advertising funds from the TDC in the past. This is the last year the festival is eligible for TDC grants, council member Ted Everett said. Council member Mary Richmond asked Riley for assurances the festival of cials would use wristbands 1st Amendment Foundation: Vernon Council might have violated lawBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Vernon City Council possibly violated Floridas Sunshine Law Monday night by going into an open-ended executive session. The councils new mayor, Michelle Cook, and new council member Oscar Ward, were to be briefed on pending litigation the city faced, so City Attorney Kerry Adkison called for an executive session following the regular council meeting. Before the council going into executive session, Adkison said the panel would not come out following the session to reconvene and conclude the executive session, as required under Florida law. The statute that allows the closed meeting provides, among other things, that At the conclusion of the attorney-client session, the meeting shall be reopened and the person chairing the meeting shall announce the termination of the session, said Jon Kaney, general counsel for the First Amendment Foundation, based in Tallahassee, in an email Tuesday morning. What happened here violates this statute. The courts have held that a closed meeting that does not strictly comply with this statute violates the Sunshine Law, Kaney said. It looks like this was a violation. Among other consequences, that violation makes the transcript a public record immediately. The First Amendment Foundation is a private, nonpartisan, nonpro t organization dedicated to JOHN PETTIS CATHRINE LAMB | The NewsMore than 600 students from Holmes and Washington counties were at Falling Waters State Park on Friday for the ninth annual Legends & Lore Festival.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Landen and Adrian. He said he is proud of his roots in this county and the family that made him what he is today. I grew up here, my family is here, my roots are here. I went to school, church and found my rst job here, then I got lucky enough to marry a girl from close by and we agreed to live here. I love America, and I know it is not too late for us to change to be more realistic about our lives, our government and our future. I like and respect the people of our community. I enjoy talking and listening to people. I still believe in the creed of To Protect and Serve, Pettis said. With everything going on today, sometimes we forget our job as law enforcement ofcers is to protect and serve the people to make them feel safe at work, in their school, raising their children, shopping in our community and going to church in safety, he said. I also believe in customer service, and like you, I want to be treated with respect; regardless if I am a Democrat, a Republican, whether I am rich or poor, black or white, I simply want fair and equal treatment. This is one of the main reasons I chose to run as a No Party Afliate candidate, to take the politics out of the sheriffs department; to bring back a time where anyone, at anytime, could express their concerns and issues knowing there would not be any kind of political pressure or repercussions. Every county has weaknesses in its government, but these are weaknesses we can turn into strengths. Unfortunately, we are living in a time where our economy has suffered, and so has our county. We see it in every phase of our daily lives. With continual cuts in funding, balancing the administrative and operational budgets with less money has become a huge challenge. One thing I fully understand it is not the sheriffs money; its our money, and Ill tell you right now, every dollar I spend will be spent wisely and only after all other options have been reviewed. Pettis said he will save the taxpayers of Washington County money with just some simple in-house adjustments that will redirect patrols and deputies to critical areas of the county when they are needed and still provide more protection. It boils down to the fact that we need to be more efcient. We need to take an honest look at our call for service load and reallocate deputies to those areas where it best serves our county at any given time, Pettis said. We also need to make lowor no-cost internal administrative improvements within the sheriffs ofce, so our deputies can spend more time on the road. One good way to accomplish this is to seek your input through a Sheriffs Volunteer Advisory Council and monitor trends in crimes and then (come) together make improvement in our services and community programs. If ever you need me, I will make the time, Ill be there, Pettis said. I am committed to Washington County. I want a true opendoor and open-mind policy for every citizen. Ill keep the public informed on the actions of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and be held accountable for my actions as well as the actions of my deputies. Looking forward, my biggest goal is to make every citizens of Washington County proud of their Sheriffs Ofce. Because after all is said and done, its not about making promises, its about producing results. To contact Pettis, go to www.Facebook.com/johnpettis162 or www.Facebook. com/John PettisforSheriff, or call his cellphone at 8966859. If your club, social group, homeowners association, private organization, community group or church w ould like ask  questions about his views or his vision for the sheriffs department, Pettis said he would be more than happy to listen to your comments and concerns at any time.

The intention of consortiums is to share services and pool resources to achieve savings across the district, and Lane Wright, the governors press secretary, said the governors ofce agrees with those intentions in an email on Friday. School districts already have funds available from the Florida Education Finance Program to take care of the types of expenses they were requesting be funded through the consortium, Wright said. The services offered by the consortium are things that can and should be paid from those district funds. The PAEC is denitely a resource for all of us, said Dr. Sandra Cook, superintendent of Washington County School District and chairperson of the PAEC board of directors. The bottom line is our children are going to be impacted by this. PAEC, the North East Florida Educational Consortium and the Heartland Educational Consortium collectively represent 35 rural school districts and more than 150,000 students by providing teacher training, teacher certication tracking, grant applications, risk management, cooperative purchasing, Race to the Top initiatives and a variety of other essential services the districts otherwise would have difculty performing, according to a news release from the PAEC. The three consortia lost at total of $1,445,000 in the budget cuts, McDaniel said. McDaniel said the PAEC was a great model of how to save the government money. Through the consortia, rural districts do not have to spend money hiring specialists or sending teachers to expensive in-service training. The state average cost for in-service training is $185 per hour, McDaniel said. Through the PAEC, the average cost per hour for in-service training is $12.50. When multiplied by the number of in-service hours completed since 2001, just more than 2 million, PAEC shows savings of $350,554,500 in inservice hours alone. The PAEC was created in 1967 for one purpose, to save the state time and money, McDaniel said. We are a solid return on the states investment, he said. We know without a doubt we make a difference for our districts. The budget reduction primarily will affect the consortiums overhead and salaries, McDaniel said. The consortium could be forced to lay off employees. PAEC has 57 employees, McDaniel said. The board of directors has not yet come up with a plan for making up for the budgetary decit, but they are putting their heads together to look for solutions. Cook said the recent mandate from the state that districts implement teacher and principal evaluations is a good example of a service the PAEC provides. I dont have an R&D team in Washington County, Cook said. We depend on the PAEC to help come up with tools we need to meet these mandates. This is very disturbing to us. I dont have the personnel to do in-service training, said Tommy McClellan, superintendent of Calhoun County School District. Our district has seen $1 million in budget cuts over the past three years. McClellan said the PAEC offers superintendents a forum to get resources and share information. Its like a family reunion, he said of the consortiums monthly meetings. We depend on each other, and we depend on the PAEC.

Wednesday, April 25, 2012Since we are getting into election season and the announcements of candidates for various of ces are starting to roll in, I thought Id take a minute and give a Newspaper Article 101 tutorial in this weeks column. Ive already gotten several announcements, and I have had several candidates promise forthcoming announcements. What I mean by announcement is an article about 300 to 500 words long saying John Brown is running for county dog catcher, followed by a few paragraphs about John Brown and why he would be the best dog catcher ever, John Browns life history, his family tree and then a nal paragraph saying again why he is the best thing since hot chocolate. Most of the self-generated announcements have been ne, while some that have been written by a third party for candidates have lacked some basic information. Normally I would contact the candidate to get the missing information, but part of the missing information I needed was a way to contact the person, such as a phone number. So Rule No. 1 include contact information in case we need to call you back for more information. Normally this isnt a problem; most people who email, fax or drop off announcements to us have that information available. Rule No. 1 also applies to any announcement you bring us here at the paper, not just candidate announcements. Though I am mainly speaking about political announcements, the formula pretty much holds true for any kind of announcement you might care to send in to the paper. Most people know the Five Ws and One H rule Who, What, When, Where, Why and How but you would be surprised how often we see these basic building blocks left out of press releases. If you are submitting an article announcing the churchs upcoming potluck supper or the high school bands next concert, then the ve Ws are pretty much all you need to tell us. For example, The High School Bands (who) spring concert (what) will be at 5 p.m. Tuesday (when) at the high school cafeteria (where). The concert is a fundraiser for the bands trip to the Rose Bowl (why). How gets a little complicated and usually doesnt make it into basic news releases. In fact, usually its the how that gets journalists in trouble when they try to explain things normal humans arent meant to understand, like nuclear physics, rocket science or why anybody over the age of 14 would go to a Twilight movie. How is good to put in your press release if you are running for of ce although mainly the how should be focused on how you are going to make things better, or different. Unless youre running for president, you dont want to focus on how bad a person your opponent is its better to focus on what is your applicable experience and how would you bring that experience to your new of ce. Which brings us to Rule No. 2 write as much as you want, and well chop it down to t. Its much better to overwrite than underwrite, especially on political announcements. Include your family, profession, education, church af liation, political experience (if any), political af liation (if it matters), your opinion on how you can do the job better than the guy whos doing it now, just go crazy. If you write a short and sweet announcement, that is great, too, but be sure to give us the contact information (see Rule No. 1). Incidentally, you dont have to run for of ce to write an article for either the Washington County News or the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. If you have an interesting hobby, job or family history, feel free to write about it. If you send us something and it doesnt get published within a week or so, be sure to check with us to make sure we actually received it (especially if it was sent via email) and to make sure we havent forgotten about it. As you might guess, we get a lot of email and snail mail each week, and sometimes things fall through the cracks. Also always ll out the subject line on your email. If we get no-subject emails, a lot of times they are treated as spam if you put Attention Randal or Attention Cecilia in the subject head it helps us know its not a spam. If it is a local article, we want to publish it. And if we cant t it all in the newspaper, well put it online for sure (especially if it involves a lot of photos). If you have any questions about writing a news article or press release, feel free to give me a call at 638-0212 or drop me an email at rseyler@chipleypaper.com. When the 1944 Vernon High School graduating class met for its 68th anniversary reunion on April 21 at Baileys Surf and Turf in Chipley, one more place at the banquet table was empty. We lost our classmate Audrey Blocker Taunton on Jan. 15, 2012. Her graveside funeral service was held at Piney Grove Freewill Baptist Church on Jan. 19 with a host of family, her church family and friends in attendance. Her pastor, the Rev. Robert Stevens of the Southport Assembly of God Church, of ciated at the last rites. Classmate Frederick Kolmetz joined Hester and me in representing our graduating class at her funeral. Audrey Blocker was born Sept. 23, 1924, in Washington County to Leander and Loney Webb Blocker. She rode the Wausau school bus to Vernon School with Gordon Mercer and, later, Jack Haddock as drivers. She is remembered by her class members as quiet in demeanor, but faithful to attend reunions each time they were held. Audrey married a Mr. King soon after graduation. They had two sons, Gary King of Clearwater and Frank King and wife, Lila, of Tallahassee. After the rst husbands death, she married a Mr. Taunton, a widower in Southport who had a young daughter, Miriam, and two small sons, Michael and Asa. It has been the writers privilege to know the stepchildren, all of whom speak highly and lovingly of their stepmother, Audrey. All were in attendance at her funeral. Last year at our reunion, we reported the deaths of two classmates occurring since we last met, Myrelle Brock Simmons and Archie L. Cook. Down through the years, our In Memoriam list has grown to 22 with 15 in the Surviving Class Members listing. Shortly after our rst class reunion in 1964, classmate Allee Whidden was killed in a traf c accident in Pascagoula, Miss. Next to pass away was Mildred Farmer Ward. Added to the number down through the years were Eva Finch, Oakley Hightower, Martha Talbot, Ruby Ann Jones Bill, Ida Frances Kelley Hunter, Johnnie B. Walsingham, Catherine Dietz Humphrey, Hilda Hightower Mullin, Ruby Brock Gale, Jacqueline Burdeshaw Donaldson, Pauline Davis Perkins, Tommie Lee Dunn Kolmetz, Joe E. Pate, Veston Newsom, Helen Owens Wray, Ellafair Walsingham Hess and Lorene Jenkins Sanders. All were remembered with a keen sense of loss and fond memories of their lives. Seven surviving class members attended this landmark celebration of our 68th anniversary. Hurdis Brock was accompanied by his wife, Sal, and his brother, Bill, and wife, Betty. Frederick Kolmetz had his wife, Nadine, with him. Frances Shores Fussell would win the prize for the most guests. Coming with her were husband, Julius, son Johnny and wife, Teresa, along with their two sons, Clint and Kevin, and daughter Mary and husband, Terry Driggers. Thomas Knight, who experienced a serious accident in his home two years ago, introduced his guests, wife, Lorraine, brother Robbie Knight and wife, Luverne, and sisterin-law Elaine Knight. He also reported the death of George Wray, husband of classmate Helen Owens Wray, who died three years ago. Emma Lou Chesser Tew was escorted by her daughters, Sharon and Nancy. Bill McFatter presented his guests, his cousin, Neil D. Blue Jr. and wife, Libby. Neils father, Neil D. Blue, as superintendent of schools of Washington County in 1944, signed and presented the diplomas for our class. Neils mother was Ovie McFatter, thus making him kin to that family as well as Blues and Brocks. Bill McFatter also reported on his sister, our classmate Carol McFatter Hudson, who was physically unable to attend. Myrtle Haddock Guy, who left the class before graduation, presented her son, James Guy, wife, Naomi, Angeleigh Donaldson, and daughterinlaw, John Guy. Gary and Janice Hewett came as representatives of his sister and our long-time class secretary, Estelle Hewett Scott, who had to cancel plans for attending because of medical problems. Shyne Marley, Carl Hightower, Trudell Brock Worthington and Luverne Chestnut Mizell are experiencing physical maladies that prevented their attendance. The common theme of the upbeat expressions coming from the speakers were consistent in expressing thanksgiving for our longevity of life and the bond for friendship that has prevailed among our number for so many years. Class members and visitors alike seemed in a high-spirited, jovial mood and were hesitant to depart once the assembly was dismissed. The consensus among our number seemed to be lets do it again next year, same time same place. The prattler, also the presiding master of ceremonies, responded simply, Do nothing till you hear from me! The benediction was expressed by Frederick Kolmetz. See you all next week.Country needs to address major concernsDear Editor, Everybody would like to have health care. The only problem is the cost of everything is out of sight. When you pay $10 for a Tylenol tablet or $400 for a blood test, it is a little high. I can go on I think you get the idea why a lot of people do not have medical insurance. The hospitals and the money you pay for prescriptions do not make any sense at all. I call it a license to steal. I think they should be stopped from stealing from everybody. I want to know if the ObamaCare goes through, how are they going to provide medical help for everyone? Social Security and Medicaid already are having problems helping everybody they have now. If they put everybody on ObamaCare, they have to get money from somewhere. I know I wouldnt want to pay higher taxes because of it. I think everybody pays too much now. Why? So they can have parties and go to Las Vegas at out expense again. I also noticed lately on TV there are talk show hosts and even people in Washington, D.C., who have a problem with name-calling. The main target is a woman in general. Calling Sarah Palin obscene names. Saying bad things about her children. There were other women also. I think it is rude and arrogant. Where are all the womens groups that are supposed to stand up for you? I guess they are scared to stand up for anyone. If that is the case, they should stay home and knit or something else. We should not have to be insulted and not do anything about it. This country is not standing up for our rights. We are getting weaker all the time. Another thing about the cross. I cant believe they are trying to pass a law you are not allowed to wear one. Where do they get off even thinking of a thing like that? I would like to know what pinheads are trying to pass that kind of law. What happened to freedom of speech in the country? I think it is going down the toilet with everything else going on. We are losing all of our rights slowly but surely. I feel like I am in Russia, not the USA. What happened to the majority vote? Well I know it is really a mess, and I sure hope somebody does something right soon. If they dont, we will be in the toilet real quick.

RAINORSHINE CARBUYINGMADESIMPLE Campaign raising money for Chipola Center for the ArtsSpecial to The NewsCHIPLEY The regular weekly meeting of the Chipley Kiwanis Club was called to order by President Vince Spencer on April 17. Program chairman Paul Goulding introduced guest speakers Bryan Craven, director of public relations for Chipola College, and Tonya Pippin of the Washington County Arts Council, who with Jim Ackerman serves on the APPLAUSE! committee and spearheads fundraising efforts locally to bene t Chipolas new Center for the Arts scheduled to open in September. Pippin said opportunities to create a legacy that bears your name or the name of a family member, friend, someone special, a company or community organization now are available through the APPLAUSE! campaign. Donors have four options. The rst is to donate any amount to the general fund. For those who wish to provide general support of less than $150 to the Chipola Center for the Arts, this may be done by sending a check payable to Chipola College Foundation to Chipola College Foundation, 3094 Indian Circle, Marianna, FL 32446. The names of general support donors will be listed in the Centers opening night program. The Be Seated option allows donors to have their name on a plaque behind an orchestra seat for $250 or a balcony seat plaque for $150. The Be A Star option provides a memorable long-lasting gift with a star that bears your name or organization on a star mounted permanently on the Be A Star Wall in the lobby of the main theatre. Gold stars are $2,500, Silver Stars $1,500 and Bronze Stars $500. Detailed information about the Be Seated and Be A Star Options is at www.chipola.edu/center-for-the-arts, or you may request a brochure by calling 718-2277. With Legacy Initiatives, donors can have their name on a number of spaces in the theatre, from a dressing room for $10,000 to the main theatre for $1 million. Opportunities for Legacy contributions may be secured in the form of a direct gift, securities, a matching gift, a planned bequest, a deferred gift, a multi-year pledge or a combination of these resources. For information about speci c Legacy Initiatives, contact Dr. Gene Prough, president of Chipola College, at 7182288 proughg@chipola.edu The funds raised through this campaign will go to continuing and expanding the departments educational offerings and programs. Pippin said with more funding, the Fine Arts Department could book bigger artists and underwrite annual educational programs that serve more than 6,000 K-12 schoolchildren in the Chipola District, which includes Washington and Holmes counties. Without this seed money, many local schoolchildren might not experience the arts. Pippin, Craven and the APPLAUSE! committee announce that the Chipola Center for the Arts belongs to the entire community. Everyone in the community from Chipola College students, K-12 schoolchildren to parents and grandparents can be part of the center by participating in the APPLAUSE! campaign. The construction cost of this 45,000square-foot facility was fully funded with a $16 million state appropriation and features a 655-seat state-of-theart proscenium theatre ideal for plays, musicals, dance and music performances; a 150-seat experimental theater for the presentation of intimate works, recitals and cutting-edge programs; an art gallery for exhibitions of works by Chipola students and faculty, as well as locally, nationally and internationally recognized artists; a dance studio in which to teach and perform a broad range of dance styles; teaching spaces, a conference room, scenery, costume and paint shops and of ces and a 350-spot-plus parking lot. The Kiwanis Club of Chipley has been providing support to youth-oriented events and programs for 71 years and last year supported 30 organizations throughout Washington County. For more information, visit www.chipley Kiwanis.com or call David Solger at 638-1276. A crowd gathered April 15 at the First Presbyterian Church in Chipley to honor a special lady, Miss Lotta. To reach 100 is quite an accomplishment. A well loved teacher and friend, guests came to wish the lovely lady many more happy years to come. Books are lled with the names of people who have made history. Their names are honored. Likewise, the women of the Presbyterian Church of Chipley wished to honor one of their own who not only has made history, but one who has also written history for the church.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Be proactive to avoid animal pestsBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Commission Most wildlife keeps plenty of distance between themselves and humans. However, when homeowners leave pet food outside or garbage unsecured, some species of wildlife will move in and help themselves. And, therein lies a problem. Some months Ill handle 100 to 200 calls about nuisance wildlife, said Corey Wigginton, a wildlife assistance biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Wigginton is a Mississippi State University graduate and works out of the FWCs Northwest Regional of ce in Panama City. He is one of ve FWC staff around the state who help the public on a daily basis with nuisance wildlife problems. Everyone enjoys seeing wildlife but the best way to avoid nuisance issues is to never let them start in the rst place, he said. If you have outside dogs or cats, after feeding your pets, bring in their food dishes or lock them away. Leaving dishes outside with food can and will attract raccoons, opossums, fox, skunks and even coyotes. When it comes to black bears, Wigginton said anything that attracts smaller mammals also will attract bears. He said more than half of the calls he receives about bears involve unsecured garbage, but includes bears going after bird seed and barbecue grills. We all know bears have expanded in numbers and occupy most of their habitat. If you know bears are anywhere around, be proactive and dont leave out unsecured garbage or other things for bears to get into, he said. Wigginton said some garbage service providers in Northwest Florida provide their customers bear-proof garbage cans, albeit for a small monthly fee, and even bearproof Dumpsters at some businesses. If obtaining a bear-proof can isnt feasible, he said the FWC provides instructions on its website on how to retro t most garbage cans for $12 to $14 that will keep out most bears. He said the materials are available at hardware stores. He said another option for homeowners experiencing problems with bears getting into garbage is to build a bear caddy. A bear caddy is a small four-sided structure with a roof, built of treated wood and large enough to hold one or two garbage cans. Wigginton said there is considerable information on the commissions website on a variety of nuisance wildlife problems. He said anyone needing more information or assistance should call 850-265-3676. If you own an iPhone or Droid, it just might save you some money someday while fishing. How many times have you caught a fish and wondered if it the legal length or how it was measured or even what kind of fish it was? Technology to the rescue. We are all familiar with all the applications we can put on our phones. Phones hardly are used to talk on any more. They take better pictures and movies than most cameras, more people text on phones than talk and the different applications are mind boggling. When I was at the outdoor show at Fort Walton Beach a few months ago, I went by the U.S. Game and Fish booth and picked up a post card with an application decal on it. Not knowing what it was all about, I scanned it into my phone. What came up was the neatest bit of information I could want, and it was free. It gave me all the fish that could be caught in federal waters, the size limits, the bag limits, the seasons they could be caught and regulation remarks. Lets say you are snapper fishing in federal waters and you catch a rudder fish and want to know if it has a bag limit and how big it has to be. All you have to do is go to banded rudder fish, and it will show you a picture of a banded rudder fish so you cant mistake the fish you caught. It tells you the size limit is 14 to 22 inches minimum to the fork length slot limit. It also tells you the bag limit is five fish aggregate, excluded from 20 reef fish aggregate. It also tells you there is no season on this fish. All the fish you could catch in federal waters are included in this application and it is free. The application for Florida state waters including all the Gulf States isnt free. It will cost you about $7, which isnt much compared to a fine. It contains all the information the federal application does, and it does so for every state bordering the Gulf, but only for saltwater fish. If you go to another state you never should be blindsided because you didnt know the rules. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netCobia are on the move along Gulf CoastBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Commission They quite often are called ling, but cobia are found along the Gulf Coast in the spring and are one of the hardest ghting and besteating game sh anglers catch. Beginning typically in March and extending into April, cobia move north along the Gulf Coast as water temperatures approach 68 to 70 degrees. Sometimes it will be single sh, but other times as many as four to ve of the torpedo-shaped sh cruise along several feet beneath the surface. During the annual cobia run, hundreds of vessels cruise off the shoreline looking for migrating sh. You usually can spot these vessels by their prominent ling towers, which the anglers use to spot sh. It is common for sh to weigh 30 to 50 pounds, but they can exceed 100 pounds. In fact, the Florida record is a 130-pound, 1ounce cobia caught off Destin in 1997. For some reason, there are years when large numbers of cobia make their westward trek close to shore, usually just off the second sandbar. Other years, anglers report seeing them farther offshore, sometimes 4 to 5 miles out. Regardless, they are typically a sh that anglers sight cast to with either large jigs or live eels. Sometimes, cobia are found following large rays or underneath oating objects in the Gulf, such as sargassum mats. During the late spring and summer months, cobia are commonly caught by anglers shing wrecks and other deepwater structure, such as vessels, towers and bridge structure. Good live baits on such structure are blue runners (hardtail), pin sh and cigar minnows. When it comes to taste, cobia are avorful and unique. Sometimes called lemon sh for their taste, the white meat lends itself well to broiling, frying or baking. In Florida waters, cobia must measure at least 33 inches fork length to count as a legal sh. Under FWC rules, recreational anglers are limited to one cobia per day, with a maximum of six sh per vessel.

LocalWashington County News | A7 for admission purposes and collect ZIP codes from visitors so the TDC will have data following the event on attendance and hometown information on the visitors. This data is not just important for the council, but it is important for the festival, Richmond said. Riley said the festival ofcials would do a better job this year of controlling and documenting admission to the festival, which will be Aug. 4. Wausau also will seek a grant from the TDC for the Wausau Possum Classic Archery Tournament, Everett said, but the grant application was not submitted in time for Mondays meeting. Riley said the archery event has been rescheduled until September, and she would submit the grant request for the tournament by the next meeting. In other business, the council approved the Dixie Baseball World Series Memorandum of Understanding. A local group is trying to host the 2014 Dixie Baseball World Series in Chipley and is seeking the TDCs help. One of the requirements of the council was that the baseball group become incorporated as a nonpro t organization, and that has been accomplished, council secretary Jim Town said. This action allows the group to move forward with submitting its bid for the world series tournament, and the city should know later this year if the event will indeed be coming to Chipley, Town said. The council also accepted the resignation of Amy Sweeney from the council. The panel is now down by two members. Everett said Heather Lopez, the Chambers administrative assistant, had contacted motel operators in the town and invited them to Mondays meeting, hoping to nd some prospective council meetings, but none of the business owners attended the meeting. The council also changed the date of Mays meeting to May 21 to avoid con ict with the Memorial Day holiday.

Tune in a support Christopher in this special accomplishment. By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Denny Hamlin came around Martin Truex Jr. for the lead and the win with only 31 laps to go in Sundays STP 400 in Kansas. Martin Truex Jr. lead four times during the race for a total of 173 laps. Even though he couldnt hold it, he still managed to nish better than he ever has at Kansas by nishing second. Denny Hamlin was just having a better day. Jeff Gordon was black agged on lap 246 for not maintaining a safe speed on the track and a lap later took his car to the garage for the remainder of the race. This penalty didnt come before he was have engine trouble anyway on lap 238. I believe the best line I ever heard was from one of the MRN Broadcasters when Truex was on A.J. Allmendinger for the lead and he said that Truex was on Allmendinger like a rottweiler on a rump roast. Kurt Busch had a rst of his Sprint Cup career on Sunday; he raced without a main sponsor on his Phoenix Racing number 51. This was the last race that was run on the Kansas track in its current state. Repaving of the track began as Denny Hamlin pulled on to Victory Lane. The banking will go from being 15 degrees all the way around the track to being 17 degrees on the low side and 20 degrees up along the wall. With only two cautions I would have to say that this was not the best race I have seen. I am sure there are many more of you out there that have the same views on this as I do, without all the accidents this sport has become somewhat of a drag. What is all of that safety equipment for if the new rules keep them from needing them? Lets not get off on that I only have so much room here in the paper. We will see if the new rules hinder the action at Talladega. There were four green ag stops that the drivers had to take for gas, tires, etc., these stops were caused by the lack of cautions in the race. The rst of these green ag stops came on laps 43 to 48. Caution on came early on lap 52 when Clint Bowyer spun out in turn four. Then in lap 58 Bowyer and Kyle Busch made contact but both stayed out on the track and there was no caution. Bowyer made it to lap 71 before NASCAR inspectors notices smoke coming from the right front of his car. Lap 76 started the bad luck for the drivers as A.J. Allmendinger reported problems with his engine. Kevin Harvick started reporting that he was running out of gas and started a round of green ag stops that lasted from lap 90 to lap 100. Caution two, the last caution of the race, came when the drivers started reporting debris on the track on lap 132. Bowyers car had nally had enough I guess and the engine blew on lap 139 and he took the car to the garage on lap 140. Laps 177183 brought on the third round of green ag stops. The four laps later on lap 187, after all those drivers had to make the green ag stops, Juan Montoya hit the wall, fortunately not ticking off to many of the drivers, NASCAR didnt call a caution. Ryan Newman brought his car on to Pit Road on lap 196 with troubles. Then on lap 215 Tony Stewart rubbed the wall but stayed out on the track to nish the race.

In other business, Ward made a motion to increase the speed limit on Church Street from 15 to 25 miles per hour. Church Street has been the source of numerous complaints about speeding, with the council considering placing speed bumps on the street during a February meeting. The city ultimately found the speed bumps to be too expensive. The motion to increase the speed limit died because of a lack of a second. The council also approved surrendering the title of a 1990 Ford truck, sold to Josh Newsome in 2010. The city and Newsome had been at odds because of the trucks mechanical issues, said City Clerk Dian Hendrix. The truck had a blown motor, and Newsome had never paid the nal $100 owed on the truck, she said. The city decided at a workshop to go ahead and relinquish the title.

From Staff ReportsCHIPLEY More than 2,000 visitors to Falling Waters State Park were transported back in time during the Legends & Lore festival, held Friday and Saturday at the park. On Friday, the rain held off as hundreds of students from Washington and Holmes counties visited the booths and got a taste of living history. Park of cials welcomed 629 schoolchildren and 1,087 general admission visitors on Friday for the historical happenings. Bad weather on Saturday curtailed a bit of the action, but area residents supported the park, said Amy Sweeney, program director for Friends of Falling Waters Park. It went great, and our fundraising went quite well, she said. Despite the threat of rain, we had a real good turnout. Attractions at the event included live cannon re with civil war re-enactors, blacksmiths, quilters, a cracker cowboy, gristmills, candle makers, int knappers, butter makers, a wild West shootout and much more. Many crafters and artisans were in attendance, and some of the unique artistic creations found throughout the festival included chainsaw carvings, basket weavers, paintings and jewelry. Animals were a hit with the children, including cows, goat, chicken and a few other animals from the farm. There were also venomous snakes and an alligator on display for visitors. Falling Waters State Park was opened on March 26, 1962, and to commemorate its 50th anniversary, there will be a plaque dedicated to the last 50 years as the park looks toward a promising future. This event over the years has been supported by the community, including major support from the Washington County Tourist Development Council and Community South Credit Union. Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of Legends & Lore, Sweeney said, adding, We hope to make it even bigger and better.Wednesday, APRIL 25 2012 Washington, make it even bigger and better.

Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3While ligament tears can cause serious setbacks in an athletes career, a similar injury can mean surgery and rehabilitation for your frisky kitty or romping Rover. According to Dr. Sharon Kerwin, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, anterior cruciate ligament tears or cranial cruciate ligament injuries, as they are referred to in animals, occur almost as often as they do in humans. Cats and dogs have the same ligaments that we have in our knees, says Kerwin. The cruciate ligament stabilizes your femur and your tibia so you dont get too much motion between those two bones. CCL tears in cats often occur the same way ACL tears occur in humans. Often, there is some traumatic injury that occurs as a result of jumping from high places, playing or getting the animals leg caught in something. It takes a fair bit of force to rupture a cruciate ligament, and it tends to occur more often in overweight cats, says Kerwin. However, in dogs, this injury is often the result of a chronic degeneration of the ligament and occurs much more frequently than it does in cats. In dogs, we think the injury may be related to weight and body structure, meaning that some large breeds such as Rottweilers, Labradors and Chow Chows, may be predisposed to CCL injuries, said Kerwin. In some cases, we think its either the shape of their tibia or the shape of their femur that predisposes them to this injury. A ruptured ligament is usually characterized by limping or inactivity. In cats, they will not want to play the way they used to, and dogs will often appear lame and sit awkwardly with their leg sticking out, signaling a possible knee problem. Kerwin says if your pet shows signs of an injured leg, schedule an appointment with your veterinarian who will conduct a lameness exam in order to diagnose the problem. The injury is often treated in cats with medical management by placing overweight cats on a strict diet with exercise restriction for three to six weeks, followed by a check-up measuring progress. If the injury fails to heal, surgery is often recommended to explore and stabilize the joint. But when dogs are aficted with CCL injuries, many times the best option is surgery as quickly as possible. Dogs often dont do well with medical management, the injury will often worsen over time as the arthritis in the knee builds, explains Kerwin. Part of the problem is they tend to suffer cartilage tears that we dont often see in cats, so we recommend exploring the knee and cleaning it through an arthroscopy just like they would do in a human and then stabilizing it. Dogs often require 812 weeks of recovery including strict rest and rehabilitation. Once your pet has undergone the recommended period of exercise restriction, it is important to encourage it to exercise its leg with slow leash walks or through playtime activities. The biggest way to prevent CCL tears is to keep your pet at a proper weight, Kerwin says. It is very easy for animals to gain weight, especially if they spend most of their time indoors, because they do not get the same level of exercise. Your veterinarian can advise you on the proper weight for your dog or cat.ABOUT PET TALKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

And, the acts of greed and covetousness are found frequently in the New Testament. Plato and Aristotle used the word to mean wanting more than your fair share, and Aristotle suggested that all injustice is a form of pleonexia. In Platos Republic, one of the dialogues participants, Thrasymachus, says that pleonexia is the natural state of man, and Thrasymachus view that might makes right. Recently, some have suggested that the economic and social woes seen around the world can be traced to people, and nations, wanting more than their fair share. Both individuals and groups can be guilty of wanting too much. Wanting to live in a house that is bigger than you can afford is wanting too much, but so is thinking that everyone in your country should be able to retire at the age of 50 or 55 with down to what is the fair share that everybody should pay. Knowing exactly what your fair share is can be readily gave and expected little in return.Take heed, and beware of all covetousness;for a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.

From your children, Pat, Jack and Sam Two block ad Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Page 4By THE REV. JAMES L SNYDERIt is not that ignorance is so bad; it is just so inconvenient. Case in point. A while back, I found a coupon in the mail for two free nights in Daytona Beach. Look, my dear, I squealed, with delight to my wife, We have two free nights in Daytona Beach. Immediately we checked our calendars and selected a time when we could take advantage of our windfall, without running into all those spring-breakers at the beach. Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I nished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terri c and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goo ng off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just ne, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I rst walked in. I focused on the menu. As I Looked up from the menu, I was shocked to the core from what I saw. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the oor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume t quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not t. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order nally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magni ed in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal. The Rev. James L.
