According to Tri-County Community Center, the initial shutdown of the canning center was because of the boiler breaking. With the extensive costs of repairing and maintaining the boiler the canning center had became inoperable. The center reopened in short bursts, lasting for only three months in 2010 and 2011. This is an ongoing effort to determine what would be required to get the Washington County Community Canning Center in Vernon back in operation, even on a limited basis, Lanhum said. On April 25, I met with members of the Tri-County Community Council and was asked to prepare a presentation for their next scheduled meeting on May 10.

When someone is employed, just because a relative is elected, they arent required to quit their job. State law would prohibit such an employee from being promoted or advancing in pay as long as their relative was in a position of authority over them, Stillman said. The employee would be eligible for across the board raises, however. Effectively they are frozen in place, Stillman said. Stillman referred to past commission opinions from similar nepotism-related questions, but said she could not address the Vernon situation directly because no action has been requested of the commission. In Florida, a public of cial cannot hire, appoint or promote a relative, Stillman said. There is a narrow exemption in cities with less than 35,000 population that allows relatives to be appointed to boards with no zoning responsibilities, Stillman said, but otherwise appointing relatives to commissions, whether the positions are paid or not, is prohibited. Before 1989, the Attorney Generals Of ce issued opinions concerning the states general anti-nepotism statute. However, the law was changed that year and the duty of issuing opinions regarding the statute was transferred to the Florida Commission on Ethics, said John Lucas, spokesperson for Attorney General Pam Bondis of ce. The Attorney Generals Of ce since has issued opinions on nepotism provisions contained outside the code of ethics which relate to speci c entities, Lucas said. If a resident of a city has a concern about a con ict of interest in a public forum, such as the city council or board of commissioners, they can le a complaint with the state Commission On Ethics to seek a remedy, Stillman said. Complaints cannot be led anonymously, and forms are available at www.ethics.state. .us. If a public of cial has a ethics concern, they can request an opinion from the Commission On Ethics. MAYOR from page A1 Arrest REPORT From Staff Reports CHIPLEY A man wanted by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force in connection with a whitesupremacist group plot to attack a rival group was arrested Wednesday in Washington County. According to the Washington County Sheriffs Of ce, Verlin C. Lewis, 40, of Lynn Haven was arrested Wednesday night. He has since been released on bond, said Andrea Gainey, spokesperson for the sheriffs of ce. According to reports from the Associated Press and oridatoday. com, also arrested as of Thursday were: Faella, 39, and his wife, Patricia Faella, 36, former residents of Canaveral Groves who now live in rural St. Cloud; Mark McGowan, 29, and Jennifer McGowan, 25, of Canaveral Groves; Christopher Brooks, 27, of Palm Bay; Diane Stevens, 28, Dustin Perry, 27, and Richard Stockdale, 23, all of Kissimmee; and Paul Jackson, 25, and Kent McLellan, 22, both of St. Cloud, according to the report. The suspects were arrested on charges of paramilitary training, attempting to shoot into a home and evidence of prejudices while committing the offense in the past week. Authorities are seeking Dylan Rettenmaier of Palm Bay in connection with the plot. American Front is a militiastyle white supremacist group, according to authorities and organizations that track hate groups in the U.S. Court records say American Front plotted an attack against a rival anti-racism group in Melbourne on May 1. Authorities have characterized the group as domestic terrorists. Police arrest alleged white supremacist VERLIN LEWIS deputy sheriff, to coaching little league and helping as a community volunteer. I have always believed that government service was a public trust and was an honor bestowed on those servants by our citizens, not a birthright for anyone. Many think that restoring our state government to a common sense path is an impossible task; that Florida has become so bound up by special interests that we no longer possess the will to cope with our problems. I dont believe that. And I dont believe the people of the Fifth District do either. That is why I am seeking this of ce. Our economy continues to be stagnant and many of our citizens cannot nd a job that pays a living wage. The people have not created this disaster in our economy; government has. It has overspent, overtaxed, and over-regulated. It has failed to deliver basic services within a fair and reasonable budget. Our leaders say they are against raising taxes yet they have almost doubled fees on basic necessities such as auto tags and registrations. At the same time, our leaders have cynically forced our loyal public servants; our teachers, and re ghters and policemen, to pay a de facto 3% income tax and told our citizens this will in some way solve the budget problem and allow the average taxpayer to pay less. Is spending so out of control and our political will to make dif cult choices so weak that we must balance our budget by taking money from our loyal employees who have not had a meaningful raise in years? How can we look those long-term employees in the face when we turn around and give high ranking bureaucrats and political cronies large pay increases at the same time? These ill-conceived policies must be repealed immediately. Our legislature continues to pass laws that allow bureaucrats in Tallahassee to have more sayover how our teachers are paid and even how their job performance is evaluated than our elected local school board. They have passed laws that allow Tallahassee bureaucrats more say in whether our children are promoted from one grade to the next than our local teachers, administrators and Superintendent. I will work to repeal these laws and return the authority over our schools to our parents and local of cials. Those same elected of cials who have placed a stranglehold on local education are simultaneously attempting to privatize one of the most basic of government services: the care, custody and control of those who break the law. They do this in a callous attempt to jettison state workers and force those who guard our safety to work for private companies at poverty wages. What we need is for the state government to acknowledge its responsibility as far as prisons and release control of education back where it belongs: the local school board. We must force the state bureaucracy to live in the real world of reduced spending, streamlined function and accountability to the people it serves. We must review the functions of government and ensure those functions are managed closest to the people. All these things are possible; none of them will be easy. But the choice is clear. We can elect a common sense voice ghting for your principles or an echo of the Tallahassee power-brokers. DISTRICT 5 from page A1

Local Washington County News | A3 Wednesday, May 16, 2012 Special to the News Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon at Patillos Restaurant at the WashingtonHolmes County Technical Center on May 8, where lunch was pro vided by the staff. Before the program speaker gave her remarks, the Kiwanis Club presented scholarship checks to the Washington County Scholar ship Trust (Dr. Sandra Cook) and the Washington Holmes Technical Center Scholar ship Foundation (Vice Chair Bill Howell). The Kiwanis Chair of the Scholarship Committee, Melissa Finch, presented both checks. The program was pre sented by Stephanie Lynn, representing Eternal Free dom Horse Rescue Inc. The company is a non-prot 501(c)(3) corporation locat ed in the Greenhead area of Washington County. The or ganization seeks to provide top of the line care and re habilitation for sick, abused, slaughterhouse bound and neglected horses, regard less of the horses age, gender or breed. Eternal Freedom is funded through donations, grants and cor porate sponsorships. Lynn informed the club that she rst became inter ested in helping neglected horses as a teenager in the Tampa area where she saw many race horses being ne glected after their racing careers were nished. She now accepts and attempts to rehabilitate horses of all types. If able, the foundation will put the rehabilitated horses up for adoption by qualied horse lovers. An interesting fact un known to many in the club, is the high number of Mus tangs that the Federal Bu reau of Land Management rounds up and put up for auction each year. Mustangs are wild horses that roam federal lands, mostly in the western United States. Be cause horses have no natu ral predators in the U.S., they breed and soon over populate an area. When this occurs, there is not enough food for the mustangs and they begin to starve. People purchase the them think ing that they can be easily trained and ridden. Howev er, because the horses are wild, it takes a minimum of ve or six years to properly train a mustang. Owners become weary of the time and expense of keeping and training mus tangs. Race horse owners become tired of the ex pense of keeping a horse that can no longer race and earn money. Many of these horses end up at a slaughter house. Although not com mon here, horse meat may bring up to $40 a pound in some U.S. markets. It is expensive to keep, rehabilitate and train the horses. In order to help augment the donations re ceived, Eternal Freedom also provides boarding for horses, gives riding lessons and guided trail rides, and will host parties and events. Just east of Highway 77 in Greenhead, the foundation has 18 acres of land and usually has between 18 and 25 horses. For more information, visit www.EternalFreedom Rescue.com or call (850) 773-2996. The website has a listing of available activities, ways to donate time, talent, or money, and much more useful information. The Kiwanis club meets Tuesdays at Patillos in the middle of the WHTC campus at noon. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or David Solger, membership chairperson at 850-638-1276.

By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com WAUSAU Wausau Town Council members grudgingly signed off on the last work of a $1 million water line proj ect, releasing the nal $21,000 payment to North Florida Construction Co. with the condition that the contractor provide the town with 10 pallets of sod. Mayor Roger Hagan wasnt pleased with the workmanship he had witnessed, and had several photos of bare patches of ground where there should be grass following the contractors work laying pipe lines for the town. The project called for water and sewer line and related structures to be replaced and netted $990,900 in grant in federal stimulus dollars, according to recovery. com, and was awarded May 22, 2009. One of the requirements of the feder al funding was that the bid go to the low est bidder, said Engineer Cliff Knauer of Preble-Rish Inc. Knauer told the council hed be happy to donate seed to the city to get the project finished and be done with it. Ill spread the seed myself, he told the council. Weve had such a hard time getting them to come back and do anything, said Mayor Pro-Tem Gail Culbreth. Accepting the contract has nothing to do with the warranty, Knauer said. The councils accepting the contract Thursday released the nal payment for the work. That is one of the problems with grant money, he added. The low est bidder isnt always your best bet, he said. The motion was made to accept the contract but with hold the cost of sod to replant the bare areas left by the con tractors. Knauer said the contractors have a sod farm and it was agreed to seek 10 pallets of sod from the contrac tors as part of the condition for accepting the contract.

Recently I saw an article on Yahoo listing the best and worst jobs, and as usual, journalism was listed as one of the worst possible careers. The list was provided by CareerCast.com, and like most things on the Internet, the list should be taken with about a pound of salt. Newspaper reporter was No. 5 on the worst job list. Journalism is the career I actually went to college to learn, and journalism as been on the worst jobs list pretty much every year since I was in college in the early 80s. This year it was sandwiched in between oil rig workers (No. 4) and waiters and waitresses (No. 6). The worst list was topped by lumberjacks, and included dairy farmers at No. 2, enlisted military at No. 3, and nished up with meter readers (7), dishwashers (8), butchers (9) and broadcasters (10). Journalism is one of those jobs like reman, policeman or model railroad shop owner its not a career that anyone with half a brain goes into expecting to get rich. I always enjoyed writing. Getting paid to do so is a nice bonus. One of my heroes of journalism was my professor and mentor, Dr. Joel Gambill, longtime chairman of the journalism department at Arkansas State University. I rst met Dr. Gambill the summer between my junior and senior year in high school, which would have been 1976, when I attended a journalism camp at ASU. When I walked into his ofce in 1982 after nishing high school and serving in the Navy for four years, he called me by rst name and asked where Id been apparently hed been expecting me sooner. Thirty years later, Im still a journalist. Dr. Gambill spent 40 years at ASU, and 36 of those years he was chairman of the department. He retired in April of 2010, but he has students, like me, spread across the country carrying on, I hope, in a manner of which hed approve. My idea has always been to treat people the way youd like to be treated, Dr. Gambill said. Not a bad motto to live by. I think the importance of a job isnt based on how much it pays, or what benets you get, but by how what you do helps others. Journalism may not be the best job, but it has its moments especially when you can provide a service to the community. Wednesday, May 16, 2012 At the annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet in early April, yours truly again extended the welcome to everyone. Traditionally, my remarks are: Welcome to Washington Countys social event of the year, continued with a special welcome to rst time attendees. This year, two of those rst time visitors were Randal Seyler, managing editor of The Washington County News, along with his wife, Shannon, who also writes spiritual and church related articles for the weekend edition of the paper. To my surprise, Randal referred to those welcoming remarks in his following weekly column. I was honored with his referral to me as the usual jovial Judge Wells. He also mentioned that Judge Wells has previously introduced him as The Arkansas Traveler, who came all the way from Arkansas just looking for a home. He then proceeded on the topic of the many meanings of the Arkansas Traveler an enlightening article to the prattler. I have learned from Randal that his college training was obtained from Arkansas State, located in Jonesboro, Ark. This prompted me to tell him of my escort duties and of escorting the remains of Cairel W. Birmingham, a World War II casualty, to his hometown of Jonesboro. Twenty-ve missions were made during the seven months spent in the reburial program during 1948-49 for those who lost the lives in the war just ended. Recalling this experience, and with Memorial Day approaching, my mind has once again reected on some of the outstanding memories of my escort duties. Soon after my arrival in Jonesboro by train, the funeral director invited me to accompany him on a countryside trip for arranging another funeral entrusted to him. Vivid in my mind is the hearse we were riding, the attributes of good service it was providing and the dusty roads. My rst assignment, after a relatively short brieng in Camp Conley, Ga., a U. S. Army Ordnance Depot just outside of Atlanta, was escorting the body of Donald E. Ellis, a Largo, Fla., resident, to the Fort Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola. This proved to be one of two escorts where no contact was made with family members. The funeral director met me at the train station, signed off on all papers and released me to return to Atlanta. This also happened on the escort of Robert R. Cook of Greenbrier, Tenn. The destination was Springeld, Tenn. The funeral director met the train in Nashville, took possession of the remains, signed all release papers and allowed my return to Georgia. Early in the Escort assignment, a mission was made to Orlando, Fla., with the body of Vernon A. Rhoades with an El Paso, Texas home address. Russell A. Cole Sr. was assigned to that funeral and provided accommodations for me in the funeral home. Imagine my surprise when Russell A. Cole, Jr. set up a law practice in Chipley in the early 1970s. Later he was elected Circuit Judge and continues to live in Bonifay in retirement. An interesting experience was two trips to Centerville, Tenn. First was with the remains of Nolan D. Green of Primm, followed by a second trip accompanying the body of Jim C. Bates, whose home town was Hohenwald. On both missions, the management of McDonald Funeral Home provided a room for me in the facility. My brother, Jim Wells, also an escort, escorted the remains of Kyle W. Qualls of Linden, Tenn., to the same funeral home on the same schedule and joined his brother in enjoying the comforts provided by management. Two separated escort trips were also made to Brewton, Ala. Virgil K. Weaver was the rst, followed by B. F. Herrington Jr. Sleeping quarters were provided on both visits. On the mission to Florence, S.C., to deliver the remains of Hope W. Goodman of Timmonsville, the family asked me to write the obituary for the minister to use at the funeral service, which I was honored to do. In Thomasville, N.C., where the body of Joe W. Netters was delivered, a job offer was extended by the funeral director to work for him once released from the escort duty. The remains of Paul E. Myers of Midway, Tenn., was escorted to Greenville. The casket which the next of kin insisted upon opening was done by the funeral director, in the presence of the escort and other designated family, and without any repercussions. Only one casualty, contained in an Urn, was assigned to me for delivery. The remains of Gerald W. Simpson were carried to East Point, Ga., and transported in a 1946 Plymouth Army staff vehicle, with a private funeral service conducted by the funeral director. Nearer home, the body of Harmon W. Ealum was escorted to his home of DeFuniak Springs and James C. Hayes, a native of Washington County, was escorted to Blackburn Funeral Home in Chipley. Regretfully, time restraints would not allow for me to remain and attend the funeral service for J. C. Hayes, the only one of the 25 that I knew personally. My last escort mission was to Gainesville, Fla., with the remains of John D. OSteen of Cedar Key. While in Gainesville, I re enrolled in the University of Florida for the summer session of 1949. I remained in school and graduated Feb. 2, 1952. Although a sad duty, my brother, Jim, and I consider that we were escorting a World War II hero on each mission. Both of us have kept our travel records on each mission made. Each of us appreciated the cooperation of VFW, American Legion Post and other military units in assisting with Military Funerals. We also recall the kindness and welcome received from families of the deceased and the helpfulness of funeral home personnel. See you all next week hopefully with another story related to Memorial Day. Opinion A4 | Washington County News POSTMASTER: Send address change to: Washington County News P.

PERRYS PRA TTLE Perry Wells RANDAL SEYLER Editor Escort missions always an honor Worst job a matter of perspectiveMayor: Inmate health reports were not falsied intentionally Dear Editor, On July 25-26, 2011, I prepared, dated and signed two incident reports regarding health issues of two inmates. The information I provided in the reports was correct and accurate to the best of my knowledge. These reports were sent to the wardens ofce, where they were processed. When I signed the completed reports, I used the date they were originally created by me. No changes had been made. The reports reected the situation as I reported on July 25-26, 2011. There was no intent on my part to falsify the reports in question. In the course of the investigation, I answered each question posed to me the only way knew, honestly and truthfully. My friends know thats who I am. I cannot account for the interpretation of the answers given. I have been told by the Department of Corrections that this unfortunate situation is behind us and we are moving forward. I am still proudly employed with the Department of Corrections and look forward to returning to work on May 18. I am also looking forward to continuing my service to the City of Chipley, its employees and its citizens. Over the past 24 years, I have strived to do what is best for Chipley and serve the city honesty and integrity. I will continue to do so. Linda Cain Chipley mayorW ar on drugs a necessary ght Dear Editor, I often read the Washington County News. I see its pages plagued with people of all ages that have fell victim to a demon I call drug addiction. These arrests clean up the streets of this ne community and make it a safer place to live. It shows that Washington County has waged was on drugs and will not tolerate them. I cant help but wonder though if this war is one that cant be won. Drug addiction spreads rapidly like a contagious disease. What starts out as fun to these individuals turns into a demon that they can no longer control. The go through life like a run away train with no brakes. Addicts no longer have a choice; an unbelievable craving and desire for their drug of choice control them. Sadly there are only two different destinations for these run away trains (addicts). They either end up in jail (prison) or the graveyard. I speak from experience and am one of the lucky ones. I write this while sitting in a prison cell I would like to see another destination or a third option available to these poor lost souls. I would like to see more treatment centers and detox places that are willing to help. I would like to read stories in this newspaper about groups that are reaching out to help these people that have made mistakes. If there were more places available to help those that are battling addiction maybe there would be less pictures in this paper of drug arrests. Addiction is a disease that does not go away. If we look up these individuals and never offer them any treatment, they will return right back to that runaway lifestyle upon release. More substance abuse treatment is needed in and outside of jails and prisons. The best approach to the war on drugs is treatment. If we show the addicts that they can live a drug free life we are making headway on the war on drugs. Addicts dont necessarily stop their drug use just because they are incarcerated. Drugs run rampant in the prison system, treatment is what is needed. Many want to change and pray for strength but it seems that society has locked us up and forgot about us. We are all created in the image of God even the addicts. Have compassion in your hearts and realize its not the person thats bad but the demon spirit of addiction that controls them, and treatment is the answer no prison. Respectfully, Bobby Ray Rackley Graceville Correctional Facility Letters TO THE EDITOR

now has individuals offer to solicit corporate donations. One goal in developing this plan was to nd an entity or agency willing to accept sponsorship of the Canning Center and remove the managerial oversight for the Canning Center from Tri-County, said Lanhum. She said employees of Tri-County began removing equipment from the Canning Center facility May 9, relocating them to the Walton County Canning Center for use there during the upcoming canning season. On May 10, I attended the Tri-County regularly scheduled meeting to present my research to the board members, Lanhum said. I was able to have a very informative and constructive dialog with the Tri-County board members. Tri-County emphasized they did not desire to see the Washington County Canning Center shut down, Lanhum said, but they no longer had the funding sources and justi cation to keep it open, based on client usage. They did identify what major pieces of equipment had been removed on May 9, Lanhum said. During the discussion, Tri-County agreed to provide me with an inventory of the items removed from the Canning Center. She said two Tri-County employees contacted her May 11 and offered to meet her at the Canning Center to see what equipment remained in the facilities. While there, I completed a cursory inventory of what remained in the building, Lanhum said. Although Tri-County had removed the potato peeler and the meat grinder for use in the Walton Canning Center, it was stated that they would be willing to return them if the Washington Canning Center were to be reopened. After this meeting, I felt that it would be very feasible, given the equipment remaining, to restore the Canning Center to full functionality by making a few modi cations in the current equipment set-up. From there she said she had researched options for removing the boiler altogether, replacing the steam canners with conventional stovetop canners, and converting the Canning Center from steam to propane. Removal of the boiler will alleviate the necessity to have a trained boiler operator on-site during operation, she said. Retro tting costs would be considerably less than the original $37,000 boiler replacement estimate Tri-County received in 2010. She said if volunteer or inmate manpower could be utilized for the retro t, those costs could be reduced even further. It is my desire, as well as many members of the community that I have personally spoken with, to see the Canning Center reopened, Lanhum said. There is an increasing need to have a community canning center available for local families to process their home grown fruits and vegetables. She said the center also could provide a location to teach proper food preparation and preservation techniques to a new generation as well as offer updated safety guidelines to individuals who have canned for years. Properly utilized, this facility can become a valuable community asset in these dif cult and uncertain economic times, Lanhum said. I would like to continue developing both short and long term plans to meet this goal. She said the only thing stopping them from nding additional funding to continue the transition of reopening the canning center was liability insurance. We need an entity to take us in under their umbrella of insurance, Lanhum said. I would like us to be able to be placed under the City of Vernon until we are able to nd another more permanent sponsor for that insurance. Council member Byron Biddle said he knew the land belonged to the city but not the building. Lanhum said the Tri-County Community Council provided the previous insurance and they were willing to do whatever was necessary to turn over production of the canning center over to anyone willing to reopen it. City Attorney Kerry Adkison said if it was made possible for the city to offer an umbrella of insurance to the canning center that the cost to the city would be minimal, especially if they were thinking of taking out the boiler. Mayor Michelle Cook asked her where the money generated by the canning center would go. Theres a lot of farmers that will want to participate, Cook said. Wheres the money going to go? Lanham said all of the money would be used to maintain the operation of the canning center, which includes paying the city for liability insurance and any other costs that may incur due to operations. The matter was tabled till more research could be conducted and discussed at the next city workshop meeting, which will be at 4:30 p.m. Monday. If you would be interested in assisting with this project, please contact Annette Lanham at 535-4151. It was announced that Karen Land had been approved of as the new hire for the position of Vernon deputy clerk after interviews conducted Thursday. Vernon City Council approved of President Carol Morris of the Vernon Historical Societys request to add an additional room to the History Museum located at Vernon City Hall. We have to make room for the Simmons Genealogy Collection recently donated to the Historical Society, Morris said. Simmons was a retired teacher who took extensive time and effort researching genealogy. His collection is vast and includes yearbooks, newspaper articles and many other documents depicting the lineage of many generations. Morris said there were extensive efforts being made to painstakingly categorize, document and record all of his research. Most of the original documents and materials will not be located at the museum due to their delicate nature, however we are making the information accessible at the museum by creating copies and documents to be used by visitors, Morris said. We are also making copies to be placed in records in the case that something should happen to the originals. Biddle asked if there was any way that the historical society could contribute to the heating and cooling of the additional room. Morris said the society was ran mostly on grants and donations, but she would present it to the society members and see what can be done to contribute. It is a dream of ours to someday open it up to our school children through out the county to make it a eld trip as a means of teaching our children the history of this area, Morris said. Cook informed the council that there had been $850 collected in sponsorships for this years Vernon Fourth of July Extravaganza. We spoke with Gilley, owner of Gilleys Place, and he said for $800 he will provide the entertainment for the event and allow us to use his sound equipment and stage for political statements from local candidates, Council member Tina Sloan said. Wed be spending a lot less than we did last year. The council approved of hiring Gilley for this years Fourth of July entertainment. Weve been approached by the Washington County Health Department to join in a mosquito spray initiative, which would provide mosquito spraying between the months of April and August, Cook said. For a minimum of $3,000 a year wed have mosquito spray services and its a roll-over plan, so that any money that isnt utilized this year will roll over into the next, which means well pay less. The actual cost would be over $5,700. The council approved of funding $4,000 towards the initiative providing that the clerk nds the funds available. The recreation reports showed that football signups have begun and there was a new lawn mower purchased for the Sportsplex to save money on contracting someone to mow it. Sloan informed the council there were residents near Wayside Park who were concerned because there was no speed limit sign posted on that road or near the vicinity indicating the speed limit. The council tabled it for further research into what can be done and will be brought up at the next council workshop. Council member Oscar Ward presented an update of the condition of the bathrooms on Dawkins Street. He reported the building is ne; it was the roof that needed replacing and suggested that the restrooms be blocked off until the roof can be repaired. The council tabled it to be discussed at the next council workshop. Cook discussed what could be done about all of the materials left at the Community Center by the high school and suggested that they sort the items, throwing out the trash and surplus what could be considered valuable. The council tabled the issue for further discussion at the next council workshop. The council announced that the next regularly scheduled meeting of the City of Vernon on May 28 would be canceled and City Hall would be closed due to that being Memorial Day. City Hall will reopen at the regularly appointed time the following day.

Shull said VHS offers four classes in engineering: Introduction to Engineering and Design, Principles of Engineering, Digital Engineering and Civil Engineering and Architecture. These projects are allowing our students to have hands-on interaction with all they will need to gain experience in the working eld of engineering, Shull said. Theyre designing and creating prototype products for speci c cliental. Theyre experiencing the entire process from demand to research to production and marketing. Shull said the aspect that impressed him the most about this program is that it utilizes the skills of a variety of different types of students. Youll have some that arent really pro cient in math, but theyre exceptional when it comes to working with their hands, Shull said. This program allows all of the various skills that each individual student possesses to be used in a practical way, and everyone nds themselves becoming engaged in the process. Youll nd students that usually shy away from asking questions suddenly interacting and involving themselves in these projects. Its just amazing the work these kids do. Chairperson Susan Roberts brought up her concern with employees unable to work in the old Chipley High School facility because of mold. Superintendent Dr. Sandra Cook said for the time being, the district is unable to risk allowing employees to work until the area is cleared. They will be replacing tiles and carpeting, and there will be an extensive cleaning of the vents, Cook said. It seems that long before I came here, there was a bad leak that was just let go and has caused damage. Weve already had a case where an employee had to be admitted into the hospital. We want to make sure for a safe working environment before we allow those facilities to be utilized again. Visiting was Greta Draayom. To empower all students to become well educated, productive citizens by providing appropriate, high-quality and rigorous educational programs in a safe learning environment, sound familiar? Draayom asked. It should, because I just quoted the mission statement of Washington County School District. Draayom said she was addressing the board wearing many different hats. The hat of a Washington County resident, the hat of a parent, the hat of a WCEA president and the hat of a veteran science teacher, Draayom said. All of us in this meeting this afternoon are united for one common goal, and that is to de ne the criteria and make arrangements that will provide for the best possible education for all students of Washington County. After discussing graduation requirements, which include many math and science bullet poitns, Draayom said, We have a signi cant challenge to recruit, hire and retain quality mathematics and science educators. We can no longer sit back and say, There were only 10 students enrolled in physics last year; therefore, we can not afford to offer it this year. It is our duty to actively build and maintain a rigorous science and mathematics programs. She said this begins with employing quality educators; educators who are dedicated to teaching rigorous science and mathematics courses. Roberts thanked her for her presentation to the school board. It is something we must always keep in mind as well as being continuously reminded of, Roberts said. Our students come rst and foremost, and its our duty to see they get the best education available.

Air tank, check. Mask, check. Area divers soon will be adding passport to their equipment checklists as they dive the new Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, set to launch in late May. Through the development of the trail, divers will be able to track their underwater journeys in Northwest Florida by passport in an effort by the Florida Division of Historical Resources to bring divers to the Panhandle again and again. It will feature 12 shipwrecks, starting in Pensacola and ending with the wreck of the Vamar in Port St. Joe. Lindsay Smith, an underwater archaeologist with the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research, is part of a small team developing the trail through a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The shipwrecks are amazing, theres just a wonderful variety (in the Panhandle), said Smith, who noted it was dif cult to pinpoint only 12 wrecks. Theyre all very close together and theres just so many to choose from. There are tons of wrecks in the Panhandle, and were only highlighting 12 of them. Smith said the ultimate goal in the development of the trail is to help boost the dive economy throughout the region. The Panhandle has a very strong diving community, Smith said. As far as scuba shops, theres probably about 20. The idea for the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail came from State Underwater Archaeologist Roger Smith. He thought it would be a great thing for the Panhandle because tourism kind of lagged after the oil spill, Smith said. Were really hoping to get some return tourism and invigorate the local dive communities. Smith and the team of underwater archaeologists also are developing a website, which will be complete with underwater photography and video footage of the Panhandle wrecks featured and links to the dive shops on each leg of the trail. Because of the enthusiastic response the team has received for the Shipwreck Trail, the team assembled some 25 to 30 hours of underwater video footage for all of the trail candidates, as well as historic photographs. The site will feature 13 short videos, the rst introducing the trail and passport and one highlighting each wreck. The passports are in the nal stages of development, and Smith said they are hoping to distribute the passports to area dive shops and launch the new website before Memorial Day at the end of this month. The passport will serve as a marketing tool, dive log and souvenir and will hopefully encourage return visitation to the Panhandle area, said Smith. Divers will log visibility, water temperature and weather conditions, pressure and dive time, and record their dive buddy and charter boat from each dive. Dive shops and charter boats will have the opportunity to offer the passport to divers for a small registration fee to participate in the trail, with a registration form to provide information about each passport holder. The shops and boats each will carry an of cial stamp to verify each dive completed on the trail to be paired with the signature of the captain on the passport. Before the project came to fruition, Smith said the group of underwater archaeologists rst needed to speak with area dive shop owners in order to see what type of project would be most bene cial. After the NOAA grant was received, we decided to go into the different communities and gauge interest, Smith said. We went and talked to local dive shop owners about what their customers look for in dive trips. Smith said the response from local shop owners about the development of a shipwreck trail was phenomenal. The team collected 22 shipwreck nominations from the owners and narrowed it down to 12, making sure there were dives for every skill level. The Florida Keys has a similar Wreck Trek, but Smith said the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will operate a bit differently. They have a much larger number of dive shops, Smith said about the Keys. The visibility (in the Panhandle) isnt the same as the Keys, but the wrecks are close enough to shore to still allow for great underwater visibility. Were looking at it a little bit differently, because we want to track how the sites are being used and who is diving them. Smith said the team plans on utilizing social networking sites like Facebook to allow divers to share their experiences and get in touch with other people who dive the trail. The website will also play an integral part in the development and promotion of the trail. The Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will feature ve Pensacola wrecks: USS Oriskany, San Pablo (Russian Freighter), Pete Tide II, YDT 14 and 15 (Navy tenders), and Three Barges; ve off the coast of Panama City: Black Bart, USS Strength, FAMI Twin Tugs, USS Accokeek and USS Cheppewa; the Miss Louise in Destin; and Port St. Joes wreck of the Vamar will serve as the easternmost stop on the dive trail. The Vamar is one of Floridas 11 designated underwater archaeological preserves. The ship wrecked under mysterious circumstances in World War II-era Port St. Joe in 1942, and now rests on the ocean oor near the tip of St. Joseph Peninsula. Resting in only 25 feet of water, the Vamar is often considered one of the best shallow water dives on the Emerald Coast. As noted by the Bureau of Archaeological Research, divers can explore the ships steam engine, bilge keels and rudder quadrant and investigate the mystery of the wreck. A plaque will soon be sunk as the last step in designating the wreck of the Vamar as a state underwater preserve. The wreck was dedicated an underwater preserve back in 2004. I think the Shipwreck Trail kind of renewed the interest in getting that plaque down there, Smith said. In order for a wreck to become an underwater preserve, Smith said, it must be nominated by a local group interested in recognizing the site. It comes from a community level, where the people come together and want to recognize a speci c site, Smith said. Its all done with public support and volunteer work.

SHIPWRECK VOYAGE Trail aims to lure divers to the Panhandle By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Its hard to imagine a more passionate proponent of life jackets than Bay County native Mike Gilbert. These days the Fountain resident enjoys the simple things of life, but if not for a life jacket, he knows he wouldnt be here. In October 2005, Gilbert launched his boat late one afternoon in Parker and ran to the kiddie pool at St. Andrew State Park to gig ounder. He knew the fall ounder run to the gulf could be incredible. All he needed was darkness and a little good luck. There was little wind when he crossed the bay, but not long after sundown strong winds kicked up. Gilbert knew he had to nd a more sheltered place where he could spot ounder with his underwater lights. In the darkness he headed out across the bay to Red sh Point on Tyndall Air Force Base, but without warning, a wave broke over his small boat. His boat rolled over and he was in the water. I had no time to react, Gilbert said. One minute things were OK, the next minute I was in the water. If I hadnt been wearing a life jacket, I wouldnt have made it. Gilbert believes he went in the water around 8 p.m. He also knew the tide was strong and running out to sea. The situation went from bad to worse when he and his vessel were swept out the Panama City Pass and into the Gulf of Mexico. In the darkness he spotted a buoy but was unable to reach it. Wave after wave of stinging salt water slapped him in the face. Bobbing in the turbulent gulf waters, Gilbert says it was one of the longest nights of his life. About 8 oclock the following morning, a husband and wife heading into the gulf for a days shing spotted Gilbert. After 12 hours and drifting for miles, he was rescued. Now when Gilbert goes shing and he sees people who arent wearing a life jacket, he tells them his story. Some listen to him. Others choose to ignore him, but that doesnt bother Gilbert. They call them life jackets for a reason. They shouldnt be stored, they should be worn, he said. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigates boating accidents in state waters. FWC data shows, without question, there would be fewer boating fatalities each year if more people wore life jackets, particularly when boating in vessels less than 26 feet in length. In 2009, there were 65 boating fatalities in Florida; 69 percent were drownings associated with not wearing a life jacket. In 2010 the number of fatalities jumped to 79, 62 percent in which the victim drowned but might have survived had they worn a life jacket. Years ago life jackets were bulky and uncomfortable. Thankfully, thats no longer the case. In atable around-the-neck and belt-pack models are lightweight, affordable and widely available. They are life savers. Life jackets make a big difference

Russ will be making a transition from a Holmes County High School Blue Devil to a Bethel University Wildcat in the Mid-Southwest Division. Ethan is the son of Michael and Debbra Russ of Bonifay, and his grandparents are Betty Taylor of Ebro, Lloyd and Hazel Russ of Chipley, and the late K.W. and Carolyn Sellers of Caryville. Russ will be graduating HCHS in June and still is deciding on a major. By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Well race fans, we have made it back in one piece. All the horror stories you hear about race weekends at Talladega, well, dont listen. It was great. Sure, there were people drinking and carrying on, but they were not messing with anyone. The staff and everyone at the racetrack were very nice. Cecilia got to experience her first NASCAR accident May 4, as a car flipped coming out of turn four. But all in all we had a great time. Hoping we can do it again soon. On May 4, as those of you that were watching the Nationwide Race in Talladega saw and listening on the radio heard, Eric McClure, the driver of the No. 14 Hefty Reynolds Wrap, Chevrolet, hit the wall hard in turn three and had to be air-lifted to UAB Hospital from the track. Reports from NASCAR are that in the accident, he suffered a concussion and some internal bruising as he hit that wall head-first. I am happy to report that he has since been released from UAB and is expected to make a full recovery.

Allen Barnes 21 Years Experience Special To The News Chipley Garden Club held its End of the Year meeting at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 2, at the Collins Hospitality House on Smokehouse Lake in Chipley. Club members Arlon DeForge and Gweneth Collins presented a program entitled Bluebirds & Mealworms. Gweneth began by stating the bluebird, a favorite of many people, is not only beautiful, but also musical. The bird had become uncommon in this area but around 2005 began making a comeback. It is a common sight in our area. She noted both male and female birds are brightly colored and demonstrated its queedle call. She also discussed its range, habitat, nesting and houses. Several books, color photographs, a nest with eggs (found deserted last Winter) and a bluebird house were on display. She also provided several handouts. Arlon DeForge discussed the construction of the bluebird house. Arlon and her husband, Jerry, have been cultivating mealworms for over twenty years. She discussed its life cycle from eggs to Mealworm Beetle, concentrating on the worm which is a favorite treat of bluebirds. She stated they are very easy to raise they feed on wheat bran and live their entire life in any dry, cool and ventilated container. When you need some, you just dip out some of the bran, give it a shake, pick out the worms, place them on a tray, and the bluebirds will come! She brought a small sample of the farm to share with members and volunteered to provide a start for anyone who would like to raise them. Prior to the program a short business meeting was held. Downtown pots will be decorated with Flags for Memorial Day and Watermelons for the Watermelon Festival. The Scarecrow Contest will be Saturday, October 13 in conjunction with Washington County Historical Societys Fall into History Fest. 2012-13 Chipley Garden Club Of cers are Karen Roland, President; Arlon DeForge, First Vice President; Glenda Wilson, Second Vice President; Gweneth Collins, Recording Secretary/ Communications Of cer; Marlene Ray, Corresponding Secretary; Bill DiZinno, Treasurer; and Genie Comegys, Chaplain.

Special To Extra TALLAHASSEE Floridas 24 regional workforce boards and the nearly 100 one-stop career centers they oversee continue to demonstrate their strong commitment to helping unemployed Floridians get to work. In April, nearly 30,000 job placements of Floridians who were assisted by the boards were reported. Since January, nearly 124,000 job placements have been reported statewide including about 27,500 job seekers who had been receiving unemployment compensation. These placements are an indicator of hiring in Florida as the states economic recovery continues. Governor Rick Scott has made job creation and economic growth the top priority for his administration. The work of regional boards to connect job seekers with employers looking to hire is instrumental to our ongoing efforts to retain and grow jobs in Florida, said Governor Rick Scott. We can tell from Chief Executive magazines recent improved ranking of Florida from the No. 3 spot to No. 2 that our state is becoming known as the best place for businesses to expand and create jobs. In light of these job opportunities, we will remain focused on outcomes such as job placements that matter most to Florida families and businesses. The results from Aprils Monthly Job Placement Report underscore continued progress with 29,514 individuals placed in jobs. Of these individuals, 6,754 were receiving unemployment compensation. With every job placement, we are advancing workforce and economic development goals to strengthen Floridas economy, said Chris Hart IV, President/ CEO of Workforce Florida Inc., the states chief workforce policy organization. Economic success starts at the regional level and I commend boards statewide and their front-line staff for maintaining a strong focus on jobs. The top 10 ranked regional workforce boards for reported job placements in April are: 1. Workforce Solutions Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties Board Chair Angie Metcalf and President/ CEO Richard Stetson 2. Pasco Hernando Workforce Board Pasco and Hernando counties Board Chair Lex Smith and President/CEO Jerome Salatino 3. Florida Crown Workforce Board Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and Union counties Board Chair Jennie Reed and Executive Director John Chastain 4. Heartland Workforce Desoto, Hardee and Highlands counties Board Chair David Royal and President Roger Hood 5. Brevard Workforce Board Chair Jack Rood and President Lisa Rice 6. Chipola Regional Workforce Development Board Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, and Washington counties Board Chair Darrin Wall and Executive Director Richard Williams 7. South Florida Workforce Miami-Dade and Monroe counties Board Chair Alvin West and Executive Director Rick Beasley 8. WorkNet Pinellas Pinellas County Board Chair Dr. Tony Leisner and President Ed Peachey 9. Workforce Development Board of Okaloosa and Walton Counties Board Chair Dr. David O. Miller and Executive Director Linda Sumblin 10. Workforce Connection Citrus, Levy and Marion counties Board Chair Suzanne Mills and Chief Executive Of cer Rusty Skinner Among the thousands of Floridians who went to work in April after receiving workforce-board assistance is Roy Antigua. After losing his social work job about a year ago, Mr. Antigua was hired as the Multi Facility Director of Admissions by Consulate Management in Pasco County. I spent four to ve days a week submitting as many as 20 resumes a day while worrying about how I was going to pay my bills, said Mr. Antigua. The staff at Pasco Hernando Workforce Board saw my commitment and helped me nd a position that is a perfect t for me. It has allowed me to regain the lifestyle I enjoyed before I lost my full-time job a year ago. Being persistent and seeking my local boards help really paid off. The Monthly Job Placement Report was developed by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and Workforce Florida in response to Governor Scotts call for enhanced performance measurement to support economic recovery and growth. It highlights jobplacement achievement and facilitates the identi cation and sharing of best practices. The report also provides another measurement of Floridas economic activities. Another economic indicator is employment data from the Department of Economic Opportunitys Labor Market Statistics Center. Floridas 9-percent unemployment rate in March was the largest over-the-month decline since 1992. Nonagricultural jobs increased by 10,800 over the month and 89,800 jobs over the year. Seven industries delivered overthe-year job growth: trade, transportation and utilities; professional and business services; education and health services; leisure and hospitality; nancial activities; manufacturing; and other services. Growth primarily occurred in food and beverage stores, employment services; ambulatory health care services; food services and drinking places; real estate; fabricated metal product manufacturing; and personal and laundry services, according to labor market information. To view the Monthly Job Placement Report and a list of Frequently Asked Questions, go to www. oridajobs.org/workforceboard-resources/programmonitoring-and-reports/ monthly-regional-workforce-board-job-placementreports. Floridas workforce system is made up of Workforce Florida, the statewide workforce investment board; the Department of Economic Opportunity, the state agency responsible for policy implementation and administrative and scal management; and the 24 regional workforce boards and nearly 100 one-stop career centers charged with the design and delivery of local workforce services.

Wednesday, May 16, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 By Sandra Devine, President Bonifay Garden Club Special to Extra The Bonifay Garden Club recently enjoyed a guided tour through the rose gardens of Patricia and Buddy Guilford of Hartford, Ala., on April 13. Both Patricia and Buddy hail from Hartford, and they both love working in their flower gardens, which is mainly comprised of different varieties of roses. Buddy volunteers that he has been interested in growing roses since the early 1970s, but did not get into rose production on a larger scale until he and Patricia bought their present home in 1977, which had an established rose garden, parts of which remain today. Buddy has always been involved in the growing business as he retired from farming and raising cattle. Buddy and Patricia are excited and proud to share the handiwork of their labor during the rose blooming season that runs from April up until a heavy frost, usually in November. Roses thrive in a slightly acidic soil, about a pH of 6.5, and full sun. Various classes of roses perform differently in the hot humid climate of lower Alabama and the upper panhandle of Florida. The Guilfords generally like to work with HybridTea Roses, Floribundas, Grandiforas, Climbing and Landscape Roses and Old Garden Roses. Buddy explains that HybridTea Roses have a vase-like habitat with bare legs (lower stems exposed without leaves or blooms) and produce beautiful long stem roses excellent for cuttings used in arrangements. The Floribunda varieties grow in a round, compact bushtype habitat with blooms in a cluster or spray. Grandiflora Roses are similar to the HybridTea variety except they bloom in clusters. The 1700s and 1800s ushered in the Old Garden Roses, which are relatively easy to grow, produce a very fragrant bloom and is popular in landscaping. I use an all purpose 16-4-8 fertilizer and mulch heavily with pine bark around my roses, adds Buddy. Folks ask me regularly, which is my favorite rose, but I dont have a real favorite. I enjoy them all. If youre thinking about growing roses, visit some gardens in your area and make a list of varieties that you like. You might want to visit with the Wiregrass Rose Society in Dothan (Ala.) or the Tallahassee Rose Society to get more ideas as well, Guilford said. The Knock Out Rose is very popular due to its propensity to with stand harsh hot climates, ward off pests and disease and still bloom beautifully and successfully thrive. However, the Carefree Beauty Rose is the newer variety on the market that is touted to be even easier to grow than the Knock Out Roseper Guilford. The Houston (Texas) Rose Society awarded a grant to the Texas A & M University to hybridize a rose variety that would be well suited to hardiness zone 8A (which includes the Holmes County area). Thus, the CarefreeBeauty series was born. One could garner more information on the Carefree Beauty utilizing the internet at earthkindroses.com As the field trip tour was ending, Guilford offered the following bit of sage advice to all us garden clubbers eager to go home and grow roses. The secret to growing roses is selecting the right plant, selecting the right location for planting, utilizing full sunshine and water, water, water. ank you to our media partners: WKMG Local 6 and Magic 107.7. When arthritis has your knees creaking and your joints aching, it can be a miserable time. Your pets may feel your pain as well. Arthritis in pets can be just as agonizing as it is in humans, and the disease and its effects are very similar in both pets and people, says Dr. Sharon Kerwin, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences who specializes in orthopedic medicine. Kerwin says animal arthritis attacks bones and joints much the same way as the disease does in humans, but with one noticeable exception it can strike some animals, especially dogs, before they become a 1-year-old. Any animal can get arthritis, but dogs and cats especially seem to be prone to get the disease, Kerwin says. It is not unusual for a dog to have a check-up in its first year, and the veterinarian can already detect signs of arthritis. It means the owner will almost certainly have to make some adjustments in the way the animal is cared for and the amount of exercise and movement the dog gets. Certain breeds are especially prone to get arthritis, and these include the Rottweiler, golden retrievers, and Labrador retrievers. Kerwin says there are several signs pet owners may look for if they suspect their animal might have arthritis. First is an obvious decrease in activity, she explains. The animal may not want to go as far as it used to on a walk. It may not want to walk at all. In cats, it is sometimes a little harder to detect arthritis, but the animal may appear to be less active and may have trouble jumping on top of a chair or table. Treatments can vary, depending on the severity of arthritis, Kerwin says. Surgery, she explains, is sometimes recommended, especially if a hip or other joint is severely affected. Drugs are often prescribed, and joint diets have also become available for dogs and cats in recent years, Kerwin explains. Physical rehabilitation can be a very effective treatment in controlling signs associated with arthritis. As with humans, weather changes especially colder weather can often be felt in bones and joints, and these changes can affect your pet, Kerwin adds. Probably the most frequent question veterinarians get asked about arthritis in pets is, Should I continue to exercise my pet? Theres no easy answer, Kerwin believes. Low-impact exercise, like a walk, is better than no exercise at all, Kerwin adds, Swimming is an ideal exercise for dogs if they will do it, and even cats can swim in a water treadmill. Thats why its best to consult with a veterinarian to get the treatment plans best suited for your pet.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com By Rev. James L. Snyder Finally, someone has come up with a weight loss program I can sink my teeth into without guilt. And, I say its about time. I cant speak for anybody else, but Im fed up with diet programs that simply beat me to death. Im tired of starving myself under the pretense of dieting, and exercising my body to the brink of absolute exhaustion. Its about time someone looked on the lighter side of dieting. According to a study in Athens, Greece, scientists have found a good laugh is a calorie burner not to be ignored. You can be sure this gained my attention. Some American researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of genuine giggling can burn off the number of calories found in a medium square of chocolate. These scientists discovered a way to measure how many calories people burn when they laugh. When I read this, I laughed for 39 minutes, allowing me to eat two medium squares of chocolate. At this rate, Ill be able to eat several pounds of chocolate a day. Now thats what I call a diet. According to their ndings, the average person burns 20 percent more calories when laughing, compared to not laughing. If somebody laughs for 10 or 15 minutes a day they would burn up to 50 calories, depending on body size and the intensity of the laughter. This means if I laughed for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I would burn enough calories to lose 4-1/2 pounds in a year. Thats nothing to laugh at. This means in 50 years I would completely disappear from the face of the earth. Which poses a question; when a person loses weight, where does that weight go? Im not one to jump on the latest bandwagon but there is nothing funny about carrying around extra weight. For some its like having a monkey on their back, for me its more like a gorilla. Up to this point, my weight loss program has been a laughing matter. Little did I know my laughing was burning calories. My exercise program has been a real joke, which may have done me good and I didnt know it. To be honest, my regimen has not produced the results I desired. Just a few years ago, I exercised my right as an American citizen to vote for the president of my choice, which has been quite taxing on me, you can be sure. This kind of exercise takes more out of a person than realized at the time and must be good because I lost a great chunk of money in paying my taxes this year. Every day I exercise my right to remain silent when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is giving me a piece of her mind. Although I have not lost any weight with this exercise, I havent lost any arguments, either. Personally, I think its a good trade-off. Now, with this new information I shall change my whole approach to dieting. Instead of working hard, exercising every day and watching what I eat, I shall throw caution to the wind and laugh all day long. I shall laugh off all criticism with good humor. I shall roll in the aisles with uncontrollable mirth. My only concern is that I dont die laughing. For the observant person, like Yours Truly, each day provides plenty of things to laugh about. My only problem is to know exactly where to start. I could start laughing at my Beloved but Im sure I would lose something other than weight, so I dont want to go there, if you know what I mean. A good guffaw, Ive discovered, carries more than just personal bene ts. An old proverb says, Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. So, I can see where my laughing is going to help other people lose weight. Why didnt somebody think of this before? I may have lost some time; but be assured I am determined to giggle my way to supreme health in the days and months ahead. To begin my regimen of laughter, I only need to wake up in the morning. Believe me when I say, not waking up in the morning is no laughing matter. When I wake up, I yawn, stretch and then go to the bathroom. One look in the mirror is good for a good belly laugh, which helps start the day in the right direction. For the next laugh, I turn to the early morning news programs, which is good for a laugh-a-minute. We truly live in a funny world, at least for the person who takes the time to see the funny side of the street. All those people on early morning television seriously think what they say is important. When in reality, very little of what they say makes any difference in anyones day. If they only knew how insigni cant their opinions are, they probably wouldnt get up in the morning and go to work. They give, on any given morning, sidesplitting, rib-tickling, laugh-a-minute exercises. If you happen to see me walking down the street with a smile all over my face, dont be alarmed. I am engaged in my Laughtercise for the day. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (Proverbs 17:22). The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 352-687-4240 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net. The church web site is www. whatafellowship.com. Special To Extra BONIFAY Warden Roberts, Chaplain Faulkenberry, and other staff at the Holmes Correctional Institute recently hosted a Regional Chaplains Conference at Bonifay. The conference was set up and planned by Regional Chaplain Director David Ring. The 55 state and volunteer prison chaplains also completed the orientation and leader training course required for volunteers to use the lifeskills transitions courses developed by the Family Integrity Training Inc. Chaplain Alex Taylor and Chaplain Gingrich gave updates on several needed topics. One was the effectiveness of educational programs in reducing recidivism (return to incarceration). Another was the implementing of the Second Chance program offered through TBN and how some facilities reported that it was especially improving the morale of the youth offenders causing less security issues. The nal presentation was an actual volunteer training session put on by Family Integrity Training Inc. Pastor Ed White presented FITs 100-hour, faith-based curriculum as a means to equip Chaplains and volunteers in offering courses which could meet the states requirement of each inmate exiting the state prison system. The state requires that each inmate complete an approved 100-hourtransition course before leaving the prison system. FITs Integrity Program meets this requirement. Pastor White worked with The Florida Department of Corrections to formulate such a program in 2005. He enlisted the help of Dr. Don Pratt who developed the present program. The program combines ve courses from the Living Free curricula established by Jimmy Ray Lee and three other books written by Dr. Pratt to speci cally address the criteria established by the Florida Legislature. Fred DeMouey, FIT Board member, explained the effectiveness of these lessons in changing lives. He is convinced that rehabilitation is much more effective in the long term and a very possible answer to keeping communities safe. This is true because the majority of prisoners will be released back into the community they came from. They will either be changed or hardened. It would behoove us to put our resources to work so that change happens in as many people as possible. Beverly Shatterly, Panhandle FIT Coordinator, explained how to implement the program by reviewing the Anger Your Master or your Servant student manual. She expressed her view that the course materials are so well written anyone can facilitate a class with minimal training. The secret to its effectiveness is an interactive emphasis which is not preachy. She said You actually get into the minds of the students and they open up in a way as never before. Many will let down their guard and share things that helps the whole group move forward. The FIT transitional course is actually a collection of eight separate courses each featuring a speci c life skill. Titles from the Living Free series are: Insight, a lesson in nding the roots of addictions; Free to Grow, lessons on dealing with lifes disappointments; Godly Parenting, Handling Loss and Grief; and Anger our Master or our Servant, a course dealing with topics often court-ordered by judges. Dr. Pratts courses are Parenting 101, Dating and Marriage, and Financial Success from Scratch. All these courses re ect real-life issues that face an inmate when transitioning back into the main stream of society. The cost to train each student is $10 per unit. The total 100-hour program is only $60 per student. The costs are kept low because all staff and volunteers pay their own way, many driving hundreds of miles to teach a class. Because inmates do not have the means to buy the materials, FIT relies on fundraisers from churches and donations to fund a course. More information can be found at the FIT website at www.100hour. org. Donations are welcome and can be done through the website or by phone 941-739-1338. Though some of the courses were written for churches and some for prisoners, they have all proved to be useful in any settingwhere life-skill development is important. This includes prisons, jails, probation, community programs, transitional houses, churches, and Sunday School classes. If you have a heart for this type of ministry or like to learn more, you can become a certi ed FIT volunteer and learn how to use these materials at one of our training classes. The next training in your area will be on May 19 in Crestview, Florida. It is an all-day orientation session and you can register online at our FIT website www.100hour.org. The cost is $35 for regular registration or $25 for preregistered online. Wednesday, May 16, 2012 But when the holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be lled with power, and you will be my witnesses...

This Message Courtesy of Gratitude is a Social Virtue Gratitude has th e power to transform our lives. We can go from feeling sad, lonely and self-pitying to happy, connected and blessed to be alive in no time at all. One of the reasons why this is the case is that gratitude is almost always directed towards other people. We should be thankful for what others have done for us or have given to us, or simply that they have been there for us in a time of need. This connection with other people is very powerful and gratitude often immediately con nects us with oth ers. Though we tend to think of the individual as the basic unit or atom of the larger society, an iso lated and uncon nected individual is very atypical. To paraphrase Aristotle, only a god or a monster would live apart from all society. Some gratitude exercises which work well are to think of people you are thankful for but who you havent actually thanked, and then send them a short thank you note, e-mail or text message. Another one which works well is to keep a gratitude journal, where you write down what you are thankful for at the end of each day. A related exercise is to think about what went well during the day and why, and to write about that.

Attendees included representatives from the Union County School Board, County Commission, City Manager, City Commission, Property Appraisers ofce, Tax Collectors of ce, Clerk of the Courts of ce, Emergency Management Services, Union County Sheriffs of ce, Union County Ministerial Society, Union County Recreation Board, local business owners, Senator Steve Oelrich, Representative Charles E. Van Zant and District Secretary Donna Ellerkamp on behalf of Representative Elizabeth W. Porter. Department of Corrections of cials included: Assistant Secretary of Institutions Timothy Cannon, Assistant Secretary of ReEntry William Carr, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Administration Michelle Pyle, Legislative Affairs Director Will Kendrick, Regional Director of Institutions Chris Southerland, Regional Director of Community Corrections Barbara Scala as well as local wardens and community corrections staff. The day began with words of welcome from Warden Brian Riedl and a continental style breakfast. Following breakfast Assistant Warden Kish briefed the group on what to expect during the rest of the day. The attendees were then loaded into three transport vans and received into the Department of Corrections just as a new commitment would see RMC for the rst time. The group was treated to a tour of the Main Unit before being transported back to the training building for a power point presentation and a grilled steak lunch. The presentation began with a look into the role Community Corrections plays in and around the City of Lake Butler and the surrounding communities. The next portion offered insight into the history of RMC and its sister units as well as our on-site hospital and secure ward at Memorial Hospital Jacksonville. In addition, the presentation highlighted some of the many Re-Entry initiatives and community projects that RMC has been able to take part in over the past couple of years and the group was educated as to why Re-Entry bene ts not just those being released from prison, but each and every citizen of the State of Florida. When the presentation was complete the oor was opened for anyone wishing to voice questions, concerns or to simply share their experiences. Many of those in attendance applauded RMC for its active role in the local communities, school system and drove home the point we have desperately wanted to get outthat RMC is much more than bricks, blocks and razor wire; we truly are a member of the community. The meeting came to a close with remarks from Director Southerland and Warden Riedl on what to expect in the way of future meetings and the direction the Florida Department of Corrections is heading. RMC would like to thank those who took time out of their busy schedules to attend this rst Community Advisory Meeting and we truly believe that through active partnerships with the community and local business leaders we can make a difference.

The meeting is preceded by a workshop, which begins at 4 p.m.By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Vernon Mayor Michelle Cook most likely is not in violation of state nepotism laws, said a spokesperson from the Florida Commission On Ethics. Cooks husband, James Cook, is employed as Vernons water/wastewater treatment operator. The Vernon City Council held a special meeting April 26 to renew James Cooks contract. The mayor and the city attorney were both absent. City Attorney Kerry Adkison declined to comment, and City Clerk Dian Hendrix referred the question to Adkison, saying We already talked about this. When the of cials discussed the situation is unknown. The question arose when the Washington County News received an anonymous letter questioning whether or not the relationship between the Cooks violated the law. In the past, people have been grandfathered in, said Kerrie Stillman, From Staff ReportsDEFUNIAK SPRINGS Danny Glidewell of DeFuniak Springs has announced his candidacy for the Florida House of Representatives District 5 seat in the Aug. 14 Republican primary election. District 5 includes Holmes, Jackson, Walton and Washington counties and the northern four precincts of Bay County. Glidewell is a retired law enforcement of cer and was the rst director of corrections in Walton County. Under his leadership, the Walton County Department of Corrections became the rst criminal justice organization in the county to achieve state accreditation. He is a board member and past president of the Walton County Fair Association, a former trustee of Walton Academy charter school and currently is a high school basketball and softball of cial in Florida and Alabama. He and his wife, Theresa, have four adult children. I share the view of many in our area that the state government in Tallahassee has drifted off course and needs to return to its core principles: the ideals of limited government, the notion of fairness and freedom for all, personal liberty and belief that the rule of law and the Constitution should be our guiding lights.

Project Lead the Way is a provider of science, technology, engineering and mathematics education programs used in middle and high schools across the nation. Programs like the one offered by Project Lead The Way provide students with the opportunity to engage in activities, projects and problem-based learning, by providing hands-on classroom experiences, Shull said.

According to Tri-County Community Center, the initial shutdown of the canning center was because of the boiler breaking. With the extensive costs of repairing and maintaining the boiler the canning center had became inoperable. The center reopened in short bursts, lasting for only three months in 2010 and 2011. This is an ongoing effort to determine what would be required to get the Washington County Community Canning Center in Vernon back in operation, even on a limited basis, Lanhum said. On April 25, I met with members of the Tri-County Community Council and was asked to prepare a presentation for their next scheduled meeting on May 10. She said to meet that objective, she had to begin exploring alternatives for replacing the boiler, developed a tentative budget, veri ed the city owned the property, con rmed with the Washington County manager that Washington County did not own the building, researched possible funding sources, contacted individuals for grant-writing assistance, and See CANNING CENTER A5 WEB WATCH For more on the Washington County School Board, visit www. chipleypaper.com.

Cooks husband, James Cook, is employed as Vernons water/wastewater treatment operator. The Vernon City Council held a special meeting April 26 to renew James Cooks contract. The mayor and the city attorney were both absent. City Attorney Kerry Adkison declined to comment, and City Clerk Dian Hendrix referred the question to Adkison, saying We already talked about this. When the of cials discussed the situation is unknown. The question arose when the Washington County News received an anonymous letter questioning whether or not the relationship between the Cooks violated the law. In the past, people have been grandfathered in, said Kerrie Stillman, From Staff ReportsDEFUNIAK SPRINGS Danny Glidewell of DeFuniak Springs has announced his candidacy for the Florida House of Representatives District 5 seat in the Aug. 14 Republican primary election. District 5 includes Holmes, Jackson, Walton and Washington counties and the northern four precincts of Bay County.

When someone is employed, just because a relative is elected, they arent required to quit their job. State law would prohibit such an employee from being promoted or advancing in pay as long as their relative was in a position of authority over them, Stillman said. The employee would be eligible for across the board raises, however. Effectively they are frozen in place, Stillman said. Stillman referred to past commission opinions from similar nepotism-related questions, but said she could not address the Vernon situation directly because no action has been requested of the commission. In Florida, a public of cial cannot hire, appoint or promote a relative, Stillman said. There is a narrow exemption in cities with less than 35,000 population that allows relatives to be appointed to boards with no zoning responsibilities, Stillman said, but otherwise appointing relatives to commissions, whether the positions are paid or not, is prohibited. Before 1989, the Attorney Generals Of ce issued opinions concerning the states general anti-nepotism statute. However, the law was changed that year and the duty of issuing opinions regarding the statute was transferred to the Florida Commission on Ethics, said John Lucas, spokesperson for Attorney General Pam Bondis of ce. The Attorney Generals Of ce since has issued opinions on nepotism provisions contained outside the code of ethics which relate to speci c entities, Lucas said. If a resident of a city has a concern about a con ict of interest in a public forum, such as the city council or board of commissioners, they can le a complaint with the state Commission On Ethics to seek a remedy, Stillman said. Complaints cannot be led anonymously, and forms are available at www.ethics.state. .us. If a public of cial has a ethics concern, they can request an opinion from the Commission On Ethics. MAYOR from page A1 Arrest REPORT From Staff ReportsCHIPLEY A man wanted by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force in connection with a whitesupremacist group plot to attack a rival group was arrested Wednesday in Washington County. According to the Washington County Sheriffs Of ce, Verlin C. Lewis, 40, of Lynn Haven was arrested Wednesday night. He has since been released on bond, said Andrea Gainey, spokesperson for the sheriffs of ce. According to reports from the Associated Press and oridatoday. com, also arrested as of Thursday were: Faella, 39, and his wife, Patricia Faella, 36, former residents of Canaveral Groves who now live in rural St. Cloud; Mark McGowan, 29, and Jennifer McGowan, 25, of Canaveral Groves; Christopher Brooks, 27, of Palm Bay; Diane Stevens, 28, Dustin Perry, 27, and Richard Stockdale, 23, all of Kissimmee; and Paul Jackson, 25, and Kent McLellan, 22, both of St. Cloud, according to the report. The suspects were arrested on charges of paramilitary training, attempting to shoot into a home and evidence of prejudices while committing the offense in the past week. Authorities are seeking Dylan Rettenmaier of Palm Bay in connection with the plot. American Front is a militiastyle white supremacist group, according to authorities and organizations that track hate groups in the U.S. Court records say American Front plotted an attack against a rival anti-racism group in Melbourne on May 1. Authorities have characterized the group as domestic terrorists.Police arrest alleged white supremacist VERLIN LEWISdeputy sheriff, to coaching little league and helping as a community volunteer. I have always believed that government service was a public trust and was an honor bestowed on those servants by our citizens, not a birthright for anyone. Many think that restoring our state government to a common sense path is an impossible task; that Florida has become so bound up by special interests that we no longer possess the will to cope with our problems. I dont believe that. And I dont believe the people of the Fifth District do either. That is why I am seeking this of ce. Our economy continues to be stagnant and many of our citizens cannot nd a job that pays a living wage. The people have not created this disaster in our economy; government has. It has overspent, overtaxed, and over-regulated. It has failed to deliver basic services within a fair and reasonable budget. Our leaders say they are against raising taxes yet they have almost doubled fees on basic necessities such as auto tags and registrations. At the same time, our leaders have cynically forced our loyal public servants; our teachers, and re ghters and policemen, to pay a de facto 3% income tax and told our citizens this will in some way solve the budget problem and allow the average taxpayer to pay less. Is spending so out of control and our political will to make dif cult choices so weak that we must balance our budget by taking money from our loyal employees who have not had a meaningful raise in years? How can we look those long-term employees in the face when we turn around and give high ranking bureaucrats and political cronies large pay increases at the same time? These ill-conceived policies must be repealed immediately. Our legislature continues to pass laws that allow bureaucrats in Tallahassee to have more sayover how our teachers are paid and even how their job performance is evaluated than our elected local school board. They have passed laws that allow Tallahassee bureaucrats more say in whether our children are promoted from one grade to the next than our local teachers, administrators and Superintendent. I will work to repeal these laws and return the authority over our schools to our parents and local of cials. Those same elected of cials who have placed a stranglehold on local education are simultaneously attempting to privatize one of the most basic of government services: the care, custody and control of those who break the law. They do this in a callous attempt to jettison state workers and force those who guard our safety to work for private companies at poverty wages. What we need is for the state government to acknowledge its responsibility as far as prisons and release control of education back where it belongs: the local school board. We must force the state bureaucracy to live in the real world of reduced spending, streamlined function and accountability to the people it serves. We must review the functions of government and ensure those functions are managed closest to the people. All these things are possible; none of them will be easy. But the choice is clear. We can elect a common sense voice ghting for your principles or an echo of the Tallahassee power-brokers. DISTRICT 5 from page A1

LocalWashington County News | A3Wednesday, May 16, 2012 Special to the NewsChipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon at Patillos Restaurant at the WashingtonHolmes County Technical Center on May 8, where lunch was provided by the staff. Before the program speaker gave her remarks, the Kiwanis Club presented scholarship checks to the Washington County Scholarship Trust (Dr. Sandra Cook) and the Washington Holmes Technical Center Scholarship Foundation (Vice Chair Bill Howell). The Kiwanis Chair of the Scholarship Committee, Melissa Finch, presented both checks. The program was presented by Stephanie Lynn, representing Eternal Freedom Horse Rescue Inc. The company is a non-prot 501(c)(3) corporation located in the Greenhead area of Washington County. The organization seeks to provide top of the line care and rehabilitation for sick, abused, slaughterhouse bound and neglected horses, regardless of the horses age, gender or breed. Eternal Freedom is funded through donations, grants and corporate sponsorships. Lynn informed the club that she rst became interested in helping neglected horses as a teenager in the Tampa area where she saw many race horses being neglected after their racing careers were nished. She now accepts and attempts to rehabilitate horses of all types. If able, the foundation will put the rehabilitated horses up for adoption by qualied horse lovers. An interesting fact unknown to many in the club, is the high number of Mustangs that the Federal Bureau of Land Management rounds up and put up for auction each year. Mustangs are wild horses that roam federal lands, mostly in the western United States. Because horses have no natural predators in the U.S., they breed and soon overpopulate an area. When this occurs, there is not enough food for the mustangs and they begin to starve. People purchase the them thinking that they can be easily trained and ridden. However, because the horses are wild, it takes a minimum of ve or six years to properly train a mustang. Owners become weary of the time and expense of keeping and training mustangs. Race horse owners become tired of the expense of keeping a horse that can no longer race and earn money. Many of these horses end up at a slaughter house. Although not common here, horse meat may bring up to $40 a pound in some U.S. markets. It is expensive to keep, rehabilitate and train the horses. In order to help augment the donations received, Eternal Freedom also provides boarding for horses, gives riding lessons and guided trail rides, and will host parties and events. Just east of Highway 77 in Greenhead, the foundation has 18 acres of land and usually has between 18 and 25 horses. For more information, visit www.EternalFreedom Rescue.com or call (850) 773-2996. The website has a listing of available activities, ways to donate time, talent, or money, and much more useful information. The Kiwanis club meets Tuesdays at Patillos in the middle of the WHTC campus at noon. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or David Solger, membership chairperson at 850-638-1276.

By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com WAUSAU Wausau Town Council members grudgingly signed off on the last work of a $1 million water line project, releasing the nal $21,000 payment to North Florida Construction Co. with the condition that the contractor provide the town with 10 pallets of sod. Mayor Roger Hagan wasnt pleased with the workmanship he had witnessed, and had several photos of bare patches of ground where there should be grass following the contractors work laying pipe lines for the town. The project called for water and sewer line and related structures to be replaced and netted $990,900 in grant in federal stimulus dollars, according to recovery. com, and was awarded May 22, 2009. One of the requirements of the federal funding was that the bid go to the lowest bidder, said Engineer Cliff Knauer of Preble-Rish Inc. Knauer told the council hed be happy to donate seed to the city to get the project finished and be done with it. Ill spread the seed myself, he told the council. Weve had such a hard time getting them to come back and do anything, said Mayor Pro-Tem Gail Culbreth. Accepting the contract has nothing to do with the warranty, Knauer said. The councils accepting the contract Thursday released the nal payment for the work. That is one of the problems with grant money, he added. The lowest bidder isnt always your best bet, he said. The motion was made to accept the contract but with hold the cost of sod to replant the bare areas left by the contractors. Knauer said the contractors have a sod farm and it was agreed to seek 10 pallets of sod from the contractors as part of the condition for accepting the contract. Knauer said hed negotiate with North Florida Construction for the sod. I might just buy it myself to be done with it, he joked. After the meeting, Hagan said that he felt the contract was not fully met by the contractor. When I have a contract, if it says I am supposed to throw eggs at the wall, then I go and get some eggs, Hagan said.Ra A NDa A L SEYLEr R | The NewsMartha Huffman, left, is recognized by Roxanne Bush of the Wausau Garden Club for having the citys Yard of the Month during Thursdays Wausau Town Council meeting.

Recently I saw an article on Yahoo listing the best and worst jobs, and as usual, journalism was listed as one of the worst possible careers. The list was provided by CareerCast.com, and like most things on the Internet, the list should be taken with about a pound of salt. Newspaper reporter was No. 5 on the worst job list. Journalism is the career I actually went to college to learn, and journalism as been on the worst jobs list pretty much every year since I was in college in the early 80s. This year it was sandwiched in between oil rig workers (No. 4) and waiters and waitresses (No. 6). The worst list was topped by lumberjacks, and included dairy farmers at No. 2, enlisted military at No. 3, and nished up with meter readers (7), dishwashers (8), butchers (9) and broadcasters (10). Journalism is one of those jobs like reman, policeman or model railroad shop owner its not a career that anyone with half a brain goes into expecting to get rich. I always enjoyed writing. Getting paid to do so is a nice bonus. One of my heroes of journalism was my professor and mentor, Dr. Joel Gambill, longtime chairman of the journalism department at Arkansas State University. I rst met Dr. Gambill the summer between my junior and senior year in high school, which would have been 1976, when I attended a journalism camp at ASU. When I walked into his ofce in 1982 after nishing high school and serving in the Navy for four years, he called me by rst name and asked where Id been apparently hed been expecting me sooner. Thirty years later, Im still a journalist. Dr. Gambill spent 40 years at ASU, and 36 of those years he was chairman of the department. He retired in April of 2010, but he has students, like me, spread across the country carrying on, I hope, in a manner of which hed approve. My idea has always been to treat people the way youd like to be treated, Dr. Gambill said. Not a bad motto to live by. I think the importance of a job isnt based on how much it pays, or what benets you get, but by how what you do helps others. Journalism may not be the best job, but it has its moments especially when you can provide a service to the community.Wednesday, May 16, 2012At the annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet in early April, yours truly again extended the welcome to everyone. Traditionally, my remarks are: Welcome to Washington Countys social event of the year, continued with a special welcome to rst time attendees. This year, two of those rst time visitors were Randal Seyler, managing editor of The Washington County News, along with his wife, Shannon, who also writes spiritual and church related articles for the weekend edition of the paper. To my surprise, Randal referred to those welcoming remarks in his following weekly column. I was honored with his referral to me as the usual jovial Judge Wells. He also mentioned that Judge Wells has previously introduced him as The Arkansas Traveler, who came all the way from Arkansas just looking for a home. He then proceeded on the topic of the many meanings of the Arkansas Traveler an enlightening article to the prattler. I have learned from Randal that his college training was obtained from Arkansas State, located in Jonesboro, Ark. This prompted me to tell him of my escort duties and of escorting the remains of Cairel W. Birmingham, a World War II casualty, to his hometown of Jonesboro. Twenty-ve missions were made during the seven months spent in the reburial program during 1948-49 for those who lost the lives in the war just ended. Recalling this experience, and with Memorial Day approaching, my mind has once again reected on some of the outstanding memories of my escort duties. Soon after my arrival in Jonesboro by train, the funeral director invited me to accompany him on a countryside trip for arranging another funeral entrusted to him. Vivid in my mind is the hearse we were riding, the attributes of good service it was providing and the dusty roads. My rst assignment, after a relatively short brieng in Camp Conley, Ga., a U. S. Army Ordnance Depot just outside of Atlanta, was escorting the body of Donald E. Ellis, a Largo, Fla., resident, to the Fort Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola. This proved to be one of two escorts where no contact was made with family members. The funeral director met me at the train station, signed off on all papers and released me to return to Atlanta. This also happened on the escort of Robert R. Cook of Greenbrier, Tenn. The destination was Springeld, Tenn. The funeral director met the train in Nashville, took possession of the remains, signed all release papers and allowed my return to Georgia. Early in the Escort assignment, a mission was made to Orlando, Fla., with the body of Vernon A. Rhoades with an El Paso, Texas home a ddress. Russell A. Cole Sr. was assigned to that funeral and provided accommodations for me in the funeral home. Imagine my surprise when Russell A. Cole, Jr. set up a law practice in Chipley in the early 1970s. Later he was elected Circuit Judge and continues to live in Bonifay in retirement. An interesting experience was two trips to Centerville, Tenn. First was with the remains of Nolan D. Green of Primm, followed by a second trip accompanying the body of Jim C. Bates, whose home town was Hohenwald. On both missions, the management of McDonald Funeral Home provided a room for me in the facility. My brother, Jim Wells, also an escort, escorted the remains of Kyle W. Qualls of Linden, Tenn., to the same funeral home on the same schedule and joined his brother in enjoying the comforts provided by management. Two separated escort trips were also made to Brewton, Ala. Virgil K. Weaver was the rst, followed by B. F. Herrington Jr. Sleeping quarters were provided on both visits. On the mission to Florence, S.C., to deliver the remains of Hope W. Goodman of Timmonsville, the family asked me to write the obituary for the minister to use at the funeral service, which I was honored to do. In Thomasville, N.C., where the body of Joe W. Netters was delivered, a job offer was extended by the funeral director to work for him once released from the escort duty. The remains of Paul E. Myers of Midway, Tenn., was escorted to Greenville. The casket which the next of kin insisted upon opening was done by the funeral director, in the presence of the escort and other designated family, and without any repercussions. Only one casualty, contained in an Urn, was assigned to me for delivery. The remains of Gerald W. Simpson were carried to East Point, Ga., and transported in a 1946 Plymouth Army staff vehicle, with a private funeral service conducted by the funeral director. Nearer home, the body of Harmon W. Ealum was escorted to his home of DeFuniak Springs and James C. Hayes, a native of Washington County, was escorted to Blackburn Funeral Home in Chipley. Regretfully, time restraints would not allow for me to remain and attend the funeral service for J. C. Hayes, the only one of the 25 that I knew personally. My last escort mission was to Gainesville, Fla., with the remains of John D. OSteen of Cedar Key. While in Gainesville, I re enrolled in the University of Florida for the summer session of 1949. I remained in school and graduated Feb. 2, 1952. Although a sad duty, my brother, Jim, and I consider that we were escorting a World War II hero on each mission. Both of us have kept our travel records on each mission made. Each of us appreciated the cooperation of VFW, American Legion Post and other military units in assisting with Military Funerals.

The information I provided in the reports was correct and accurate to the best of my knowledge. These reports were sent to the wardens ofce, where they were processed. When I signed the completed reports, I used the date they were originally created by me. No changes had been made. The reports reected the situation as I reported on July 25-26, 2011. There was no intent on my part to falsify the reports in question. In the course of the investigation, I answered each question posed to me the only way knew, honestly and truthfully. My friends know thats who I am. I cannot account for the interpretation of the answers given. I have been told by the Department of Corrections that this unfortunate situation is behind us and we are moving forward. I am still proudly employed with the Department of Corrections and look forward to returning to work on May 18. I am also looking forward to continuing my service to the City of Chipley, its employees and its citizens. Over the past 24 years, I have strived to do what is best for Chipley and serve the city honesty and integrity. I will continue to do so. Linda Cain Chipley mayorWW ar on drugs a necessary ghtDear Editor, I often read the Washington County News. I see its pages plagued with people of all ages that have fell victim to a demon I call drug addiction. These arrests clean up the streets of this ne community and make it a safer place to live. It shows that Washington County has waged was on drugs and will not tolerate them. I cant help but wonder though if this war is one that cant be won. Drug addiction spreads rapidly like a contagious disease. What starts out as fun to these individuals turns into a demon that they can no longer control. The go through life like a run away train with no brakes. Addicts no longer have a choice; an unbelievable craving and desire for their drug of choice control them. Sadly there are only two different destinations for these run away trains (addicts). They either end up in jail (prison) or the graveyard. I speak from experience and am one of the lucky ones. I write this while sitting in a prison cell I would like to see another destination or a third option available to these poor lost souls. I would like to see more treatment centers and detox places that are willing to help. I would like to read stories in this newspaper about groups that are reaching out to help these people that have made mistakes. If there were more places available to help those that are battling addiction maybe there would be less pictures in this paper of drug arrests. Addiction is a disease that does not go away. If we look up these individuals and never offer them any treatment, they will return right back to that runaway lifestyle upon release. More substance abuse treatment is needed in and outside of jails and prisons. The best approach to the war on drugs is treatment. If we show the addicts that they can live a drug free life we are making headway on the war on drugs. Addicts dont necessarily stop their drug use just because they are incarcerated. Drugs run rampant in the prison system, treatment is what is needed. Many want to change and pray for strength but it seems that society has locked us up and forgot about us. We are all created in the image of God even the addicts. Have compassion in your hearts and realize its not the person thats bad but the demon spirit of addiction that controls them, and treatment is the answer no prison. Respectfully,Bobby Ray Rackley Graceville Correctional Facility Letters TOTO THETHE EDITOR

now has individuals offer to solicit corporate donations. One goal in developing this plan was to nd an entity or agency willing to accept sponsorship of the Canning Center and remove the managerial oversight for the Canning Center from Tri-County, said Lanhum. She said employees of Tri-County began removing equipment from the Canning Center facility May 9, relocating them to the Walton County Canning Center for use there during the upcoming canning season. On May 10, I attended the Tri-County regularly scheduled meeting to present my research to the board members, Lanhum said. I was able to have a very informative and constructive dialog with the Tri-County board members. Tri-County emphasized they did not desire to see the Washington County Canning Center shut down, Lanhum said, but they no longer had the funding sources and justi cation to keep it open, based on client usage. They did identify what major pieces of equipment had been removed on May 9, Lanhum said. During the discussion, Tri-County agreed to provide me with an inventory of the items removed from the Canning Center. She said two Tri-County employees contacted her May 11 and offered to meet her at the Canning Center to see what equipment remained in the facilities. While there, I completed a cursory inventory of what remained in the building, Lanhum said. Although Tri-County had removed the potato peeler and the meat grinder for use in the Walton Canning Center, it was stated that they would be willing to return them if the Washington Canning Center were to be reopened. After this meeting, I felt that it would be very feasible, given the equipment remaining, to restore the Canning Center to full functionality by making a few modi cations in the current equipment set-up. From there she said she had researched options for removing the boiler altogether, replacing the steam canners with conventional stovetop canners, and converting the Canning Center from steam to propane. Removal of the boiler will alleviate the necessity to have a trained boiler operator on-site during operation, she said. Retro tting costs would be considerably less than the original $37,000 boiler replacement estimate Tri-County received in 2010. She said if volunteer or inmate manpower could be utilized for the retro t, those costs could be reduced even further. It is my desire, as well as many members of the community that I have personally spoken with, to see the Canning Center reopened, Lanhum said. There is an increasing need to have a community canning center available for local families to process their home grown fruits and vegetables. She said the center also could provide a location to teach proper food preparation and preservation techniques to a new generation as well as offer updated safety guidelines to individuals who have canned for years. Properly utilized, this facility can become a valuable community asset in these dif cult and uncertain economic times, Lanhum said. I would like to continue developing both short and long term plans to meet this goal. She said the only thing stopping them from nding additional funding to continue the transition of reopening the canning center was liability insurance. We need an entity to take us in under their umbrella of insurance, Lanhum said. I would like us to be able to be placed under the City of Vernon until we are able to nd another more permanent sponsor for that insurance. Council member Byron Biddle said he knew the land belonged to the city but not the building. Lanhum said the Tri-County Community Council provided the previous insurance and they were willing to do whatever was necessary to turn over production of the canning center over to anyone willing to reopen it. City Attorney Kerry Adkison said if it was made possible for the city to offer an umbrella of insurance to the canning center that the cost to the city would be minimal, especially if they were thinking of taking out the boiler. Mayor Michelle Cook asked her where the money generated by the canning center would go. Theres a lot of farmers that will want to participate, Cook said. Wheres the money going to go? Lanham said all of the money would be used to maintain the operation of the canning center, which includes paying the city for liability insurance and any other costs that may incur due to operations. The matter was tabled till more research could be conducted and discussed at the next city workshop meeting, which will be at 4:30 p.m. Monday. If you would be interested in assisting with this project, please contact Annette Lanham at 535-4151. It was announced that Karen Land had been approved of as the new hire for the position of Vernon deputy clerk after interviews conducted Thursday. Vernon City Council approved of President Carol Morris of the Vernon Historical Societys request to add an additional room to the History Museum located at Vernon City Hall. We have to make room for the Simmons Genealogy Collection recently donated to the Historical Society, Morris said. Simmons was a retired teacher who took extensive time and effort researching genealogy. His collection is vast and includes yearbooks, newspaper articles and many other documents depicting the lineage of many generations. Morris said there were extensive efforts being made to painstakingly categorize, document and record all of his research. Most of the original documents and materials will not be located at the museum due to their delicate nature, however we are making the information accessible at the museum by creating copies and documents to be used by visitors, Morris said. We are also making copies to be placed in records in the case that something should happen to the originals. Biddle asked if there was any way that the historical society could contribute to the heating and cooling of the additional room. Morris said the society was ran mostly on grants and donations, but she would present it to the society members and see what can be done to contribute. It is a dream of ours to someday open it up to our school children through out the county to make it a eld trip as a means of teaching our children the history of this area, Morris said. Cook informed the council that there had been $850 collected in sponsorships for this years Vernon Fourth of July Extravaganza. We spoke with Gilley, owner of Gilleys Place, and he said for $800 he will provide the entertainment for the event and allow us to use his sound equipment and stage for political statements from local candidates, Council member Tina Sloan said. Wed be spending a lot less than we did last year. The council approved of hiring Gilley for this years Fourth of July entertainment. Weve been approached by the Washington County Health Department to join in a mosquito spray initiative, which would provide mosquito spraying between the months of April and August, Cook said. For a minimum of $3,000 a year wed have mosquito spray services and its a roll-over plan, so that any money that isnt utilized this year will roll over into the next, which means well pay less. The actual cost would be over $5,700. The council approved of funding $4,000 towards the initiative providing that the clerk nds the funds available. The recreation reports showed that football signups have begun and there was a new lawn mower purchased for the Sportsplex to save money on contracting someone to mow it. Sloan informed the council there were residents near Wayside Park who were concerned because there was no speed limit sign posted on that road or near the vicinity indicating the speed limit. The council tabled it for further research into what can be done and will be brought up at the next council workshop. Council member Oscar Ward presented an update of the condition of the bathrooms on Dawkins Street. He reported the building is ne; it was the roof that needed replacing and suggested that the restrooms be blocked off until the roof can be repaired. The council tabled it to be discussed at the next council workshop. Cook discussed what could be done about all of the materials left at the Community Center by the high school and suggested that they sort the items, throwing out the trash and surplus what could be considered valuable. The council tabled the issue for further discussion at the next council workshop. The council announced that the next regularly scheduled meeting of the City of Vernon on May 28 would be canceled and City Hall would be closed due to that being Memorial Day. City Hall will reopen at the regularly appointed time the following day.

Shull said VHS offers four classes in engineering: Introduction to Engineering and Design, Principles of Engineering, Digital Engineering and Civil Engineering and Architecture. These projects are allowing our students to have hands-on interaction with all they will need to gain experience in the working eld of engineering, Shull said. Theyre designing and creating prototype products for speci c cliental. Theyre experiencing the entire process from demand to research to production and marketing. Shull said the aspect that impressed him the most about this program is that it utilizes the skills of a variety of different types of students. Youll have some that arent really pro cient in math, but theyre exceptional when it comes to working with their hands, Shull said. This program allows all of the various skills that each individual student possesses to be used in a practical way, and everyone nds themselves becoming engaged in the process. Youll nd students that usually shy away from asking questions suddenly interacting and involving themselves in these projects. Its just amazing the work these kids do. Chairperson Susan Roberts brought up her concern with employees unable to work in the old Chipley High School facility because of mold. Superintendent Dr. Sandra Cook said for the time being, the district is unable to risk allowing employees to work until the area is cleared. They will be replacing tiles and carpeting, and there will be an extensive cleaning of the vents, Cook said. It seems that long before I came here, there was a bad leak that was just let go and has caused damage. Weve already had a case where an employee had to be admitted into the hospital. We want to make sure for a safe working environment before we allow those facilities to be utilized again. Visiting was Greta Draayom. To empower all students to become well educated, productive citizens by providing appropriate, high-quality and rigorous educational programs in a safe learning environment, sound familiar? Draayom asked. It should, because I just quoted the mission statement of Washington County School District. Draayom said she was addressing the board wearing many different hats. The hat of a Washington County resident, the hat of a parent, the hat of a WCEA president and the hat of a veteran science teacher, Draayom said. All of us in this meeting this afternoon are united for one common goal, and that is to de ne the criteria and make arrangements that will provide for the best possible education for all students of Washington County. After discussing graduation requirements, which include many math and science bullet poitns, Draayom said, We have a signi cant challenge to recruit, hire and retain quality mathematics and science educators. We can no longer sit back and say, There were only 10 students enrolled in physics last year; therefore, we can not afford to offer it this year. It is our duty to actively build and maintain a rigorous science and mathematics programs. She said this begins with employing quality educators; educators who are dedicated to teaching rigorous science and mathematics courses. Roberts thanked her for her presentation to the school board. It is something we must always keep in mind as well as being continuously reminded of, Roberts said. Our students come rst and foremost, and its our duty to see they get the best education available.

Air tank, check. Mask, check. Area divers soon will be adding passport to their equipment checklists as they dive the new Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, set to launch in late May. Through the development of the trail, divers will be able to track their underwater journeys in Northwest Florida by passport in an effort by the Florida Division of Historical Resources to bring divers to the Panhandle again and again. It will feature 12 shipwrecks, starting in Pensacola and ending with the wreck of the Vamar in Port St. Joe. Lindsay Smith, an underwater archaeologist with the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research, is part of a small team developing the trail through a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The shipwrecks are amazing, theres just a wonderful variety (in the Panhandle), said Smith, who noted it was dif cult to pinpoint only 12 wrecks. Theyre all very close together and theres just so many to choose from. There are tons of wrecks in the Panhandle, and were only highlighting 12 of them. Smith said the ultimate goal in the development of the trail is to help boost the dive economy throughout the region. The Panhandle has a very strong diving community, Smith said. As far as scuba shops, theres probably about 20. The idea for the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail came from State Underwater Archaeologist Roger Smith. He thought it would be a great thing for the Panhandle because tourism kind of lagged after the oil spill, Smith said. Were really hoping to get some return tourism and invigorate the local dive communities. Smith and the team of underwater archaeologists also are developing a website, which will be complete with underwater photography and video footage of the Panhandle wrecks featured and links to the dive shops on each leg of the trail. Because of the enthusiastic response the team has received for the Shipwreck Trail, the team assembled some 25 to 30 hours of underwater video footage for all of the trail candidates, as well as historic photographs. The site will feature 13 short videos, the rst introducing the trail and passport and one highlighting each wreck. The passports are in the nal stages of development, and Smith said they are hoping to distribute the passports to area dive shops and launch the new website before Memorial Day at the end of this month. The passport will serve as a marketing tool, dive log and souvenir and will hopefully encourage return visitation to the Panhandle area, said Smith. Divers will log visibility, water temperature and weather conditions, pressure and dive time, and record their dive buddy and charter boat from each dive. Dive shops and charter boats will have the opportunity to offer the passport to divers for a small registration fee to participate in the trail, with a registration form to provide information about each passport holder. The shops and boats each will carry an of cial stamp to verify each dive completed on the trail to be paired with the signature of the captain on the passport. Before the project came to fruition, Smith said the group of underwater archaeologists rst needed to speak with area dive shop owners in order to see what type of project would be most bene cial. After the NOAA grant was received, we decided to go into the different communities and gauge interest, Smith said. We went and talked to local dive shop owners about what their customers look for in dive trips. Smith said the response from local shop owners about the development of a shipwreck trail was phenomenal. The team collected 22 shipwreck nominations from the owners and narrowed it down to 12, making sure there were dives for every skill level. The Florida Keys has a similar Wreck Trek, but Smith said the Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will operate a bit differently. They have a much larger number of dive shops, Smith said about the Keys. The visibility (in the Panhandle) isnt the same as the Keys, but the wrecks are close enough to shore to still allow for great underwater visibility. Were looking at it a little bit differently, because we want to track how the sites are being used and who is diving them. Smith said the team plans on utilizing social networking sites like Facebook to allow divers to share their experiences and get in touch with other people who dive the trail. The website will also play an integral part in the development and promotion of the trail. The Panhandle Shipwreck Trail will feature ve Pensacola wrecks: USS Oriskany, San Pablo (Russian Freighter), Pete Tide II, YDT 14 and 15 (Navy tenders), and Three Barges; ve off the coast of Panama City: Black Bart, USS Strength, FAMI Twin Tugs, USS Accokeek and USS Cheppewa; the Miss Louise in Destin; and Port St. Joes wreck of the Vamar will serve as the easternmost stop on the dive trail. The Vamar is one of Floridas 11 designated underwater archaeological preserves. The ship wrecked under mysterious circumstances in World War II-era Port St. Joe in 1942, and now rests on the ocean oor near the tip of St. Joseph Peninsula. Resting in only 25 feet of water, the Vamar is often considered one of the best shallow water dives on the Emerald Coast. As noted by the Bureau of Archaeological Research, divers can explore the ships steam engine, bilge keels and rudder quadrant and investigate the mystery of the wreck. A plaque will soon be sunk as the last step in designating the wreck of the Vamar as a state underwater preserve. The wreck was dedicated an underwater preserve back in 2004. I think the Shipwreck Trail kind of renewed the interest in getting that plaque down there, Smith said. In order for a wreck to become an underwater preserve, Smith said, it must be nominated by a local group interested in recognizing the site. It comes from a community level, where the people come together and want to recognize a speci c site, Smith said. Its all done with public support and volunteer work.

SHIPWRECKVOYAGETrail aims to lure divers to the Panhandle By STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Its hard to imagine a more passionate proponent of life jackets than Bay County native Mike Gilbert. These days the Fountain resident enjoys the simple things of life, but if not for a life jacket, he knows he wouldnt be here. In October 2005, Gilbert launched his boat late one afternoon in Parker and ran to the kiddie pool at St. Andrew State Park to gig ounder. He knew the fall ounder run to the gulf could be incredible. All he needed was darkness and a little good luck. There was little wind when he crossed the bay, but not long after sundown strong winds kicked up. Gilbert knew he had to nd a more sheltered place where he could spot ounder with his underwater lights. In the darkness he headed out across the bay to Red sh Point on Tyndall Air Force Base, but without warning, a wave broke over his small boat. His boat rolled over and he was in the water. I had no time to react, Gilbert said. One minute things were OK, the next minute I was in the water. If I hadnt been wearing a life jacket, I wouldnt have made it. Gilbert believes he went in the water around 8 p.m. He also knew the tide was strong and running out to sea. The situation went from bad to worse when he and his vessel were swept out the Panama City Pass and into the Gulf of Mexico. In the darkness he spotted a buoy but was unable to reach it. Wave after wave of stinging salt water slapped him in the face. Bobbing in the turbulent gulf waters, Gilbert says it was one of the longest nights of his life. About 8 oclock the following morning, a husband and wife heading into the gulf for a days shing spotted Gilbert. After 12 hours and drifting for miles, he was rescued. Now when Gilbert goes shing and he sees people who arent wearing a life jacket, he tells them his story. Some listen to him. Others choose to ignore him, but that doesnt bother Gilbert. They call them life jackets for a reason. They shouldnt be stored, they should be worn, he said. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigates boating accidents in state waters. FWC data shows, without question, there would be fewer boating fatalities each year if more people wore life jackets, particularly when boating in vessels less than 26 feet in length. In 2009, there were 65 boating fatalities in Florida; 69 percent were drownings associated with not wearing a life jacket. In 2010 the number of fatalities jumped to 79, 62 percent in which the victim drowned but might have survived had they worn a life jacket. Years ago life jackets were bulky and uncomfortable. Thankfully, thats no longer the case. In atable around-the-neck and belt-pack models are lightweight, affordable and widely available. They are life savers. Life jackets make a big difference

All the horror stories you hear about race weekends at Talladega, well, dont listen. It was great. Sure, there were people drinking and carrying on, but they were not messing with anyone. The staff and everyone at the racetrack were very nice. Cecilia got to experience her first NASCAR accident May 4, as a car flipped coming out of turn four. But all in all we had a great time. Hoping we can do it again soon. On May 4, as those of you that were watching the Nationwide Race in Talladega saw and listening on the radio heard, Eric McClure, the driver of the No. 14 Hefty Reynolds Wrap, Chevrolet, hit the wall hard in turn three and had to be air-lifted to UAB Hospital from the track. Reports from NASCAR are that in the accident, he suffered a concussion and some internal bruising as he hit that wall head-first. I am happy to report that he has since been released from UAB and is expected to make a full recovery.

Club members Arlon DeForge and Gweneth Collins presented a program entitled Bluebirds & Mealworms. Gweneth began by stating the bluebird, a favorite of many people, is not only beautiful, but also musical. The bird had become uncommon in this area but around 2005 began making a comeback. It is a common sight in our area. She noted both male and female birds are brightly colored and demonstrated its queedle call. She also discussed its range, habitat, nesting and houses. Several books, color photographs, a nest with eggs (found deserted last Winter) and a bluebird house were on display. She also provided several handouts. Arlon DeForge discussed the construction of the bluebird house. Arlon and her husband, Jerry, have been cultivating mealworms for over twenty years. She discussed its life cycle from eggs to Mealworm Beetle, concentrating on the worm which is a favorite treat of bluebirds. She stated they are very easy to raise they feed on wheat bran and live their entire life in any dry, cool and ventilated container. When you need some, you just dip out some of the bran, give it a shake, pick out the worms, place them on a tray, and the bluebirds will come! She brought a small sample of the farm to share with members and volunteered to provide a start for anyone who would like to raise them. Prior to the program a short business meeting was held. Downtown pots will be decorated with Flags for Memorial Day and Watermelons for the Watermelon Festival.

In April, nearly 30,000 job placements of Floridians who were assisted by the boards were reported. Since January, nearly 124,000 job placements have been reported statewide including about 27,500 job seekers who had been receiving unemployment compensation. These placements are an indicator of hiring in Florida as the states economic recovery continues. Governor Rick Scott has made job creation and economic growth the top priority for his administration. The work of regional boards to connect job seekers with employers looking to hire is instrumental to our ongoing efforts to retain and grow jobs in Florida, said Governor Rick Scott. We can tell from Chief Executive magazines recent improved ranking of Florida from the No. 3 spot to No. 2 that our state is becoming known as the best place for businesses to expand and create jobs. In light of these job opportunities, we will remain focused on outcomes such as job placements that matter most to Florida families and businesses. The results from Aprils Monthly Job Placement Report underscore continued progress with 29,514 individuals placed in jobs. Of these individuals, 6,754 were receiving unemployment compensation. With every job placement, we are advancing workforce and economic development goals to strengthen Floridas economy, said Chris Hart IV, President/ CEO of Workforce Florida Inc., the states chief workforce policy organization. Economic success starts at the regional level and I commend boards statewide and their front-line staff for maintaining a strong focus on jobs. The top 10 ranked regional workforce boards for reported job placements in April are: 1. Workforce Solutions Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties Board Chair Angie Metcalf and President/ CEO Richard Stetson 2. Pasco Hernando Workforce Board Pasco and Hernando counties Board Chair Lex Smith and President/CEO Jerome Salatino 3. Florida Crown Workforce Board Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and Union counties Board Chair Jennie Reed and Executive Director John Chastain 4.

Miller and Executive Director Linda Sumblin 10. Workforce Connection Citrus, Levy and Marion counties Board Chair Suzanne Mills and Chief Executive Of cer Rusty Skinner Among the thousands of Floridians who went to work in April after receiving workforce-board assistance is Roy Antigua. After losing his social work job about a year ago, Mr. Antigua was hired as the Multi Facility Director of Admissions by Consulate Management in Pasco County. I spent four to ve days a week submitting as many as 20 resumes a day while worrying about how I was going to pay my bills, said Mr. Antigua. The staff at Pasco Hernando Workforce Board saw my commitment and helped me nd a position that is a perfect t for me. It has allowed me to regain the lifestyle I enjoyed before I lost my full-time job a year ago. Being persistent and seeking my local boards help really paid off. The Monthly Job Placement Report was developed by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and Workforce Florida in response to Governor Scotts call for enhanced performance measurement to support economic recovery and growth. It highlights jobplacement achievement and facilitates the identi cation and sharing of best practices. The report also provides another measurement of Floridas economic activities. Another economic indicator is employment data from the Department of Economic Opportunitys Labor Market Statistics Center. Floridas 9-percent unemployment rate in March was the largest over-the-month decline since 1992. Nonagricultural jobs increased by 10,800 over the month and 89,800 jobs over the year. Seven industries delivered overthe-year job growth: trade, transportation and utilities; professional and business services; education and health services; leisure and hospitality; nancial activities; manufacturing; and other services. Growth primarily occurred in food and beverage stores, employment services; ambulatory health care services; food services and drinking places; real estate; fabricated metal product manufacturing; and personal and laundry services, according to labor market information. To view the Monthly Job Placement Report and a list of Frequently Asked Questions, go to www. oridajobs.org/workforceboard-resources/programmonitoring-and-reports/ monthly-regional-workforce-board-job-placementreports. Floridas workforce system is made up of Workforce Florida, the statewide workforce investment board; the Department of Economic Opportunity, the state agency responsible for policy implementation and administrative and scal management; and the 24 regional workforce boards and nearly 100 one-stop career centers charged with the design and delivery of local workforce services.

Wednesday, May 16, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3By Sandra Devine, President Bonifay Garden ClubSpecial to Extra The Bonifay Garden Club recently enjoyed a guided tour through the rose gardens of Patricia and Buddy Guilford of Hartford, Ala., on April 13. Both Patricia and Buddy hail from Hartford, and they both love working in their flower gardens, which is mainly comprised of different varieties of roses. Buddy volunteers that he has been interested in growing roses since the early 1970s, but did not get into rose production on a larger scale until he and Patricia bought their present home in 1977, which had an established rose garden, parts of which remain today. Buddy has always been involved in the growing business as he retired from farming and raising cattle. Buddy and Patricia are excited and proud to share the handiwork of their labor during the rose blooming season that runs from April up until a heavy frost, usually in November. Roses thrive in a slightly acidic soil, about a pH of 6.5, and full sun. Various classes of roses perform differently in the hot humid climate of lower Alabama and the upper panhandle of Florida. The Guilfords generally like to work with HybridTea Roses, Floribundas, Grandiforas, Climbing and Landscape Roses and Old Garden Roses. Buddy explains that HybridTea Roses have a vase-like habitat with bare legs (lower stems exposed without leaves or blooms) and produce beautiful long stem roses excellent for cuttings used in arrangements. The Floribunda varieties grow in a round, compact bushtype habitat with blooms in a cluster or spray. Grandiflora Roses are similar to the HybridTea variety except they bloom in clusters. The 1700s and 1800s ushered in the Old Garden Roses, which are relatively easy to grow, produce a very fragrant bloom and is popular in landscaping. I use an all purpose 16-4-8 fertilizer and mulch heavily with pine bark around my roses, adds Buddy. Folks ask me regularly, which is my favorite rose, but I dont have a real favorite. I enjoy them all. If youre thinking about growing roses, visit some gardens in your area and make a list of varieties that you like. You might want to visit with the Wiregrass Rose Society in Dothan (Ala.) or the Tallahassee Rose Society to get more ideas as well, Guilford said. The Knock Out Rose is very popular due to its propensity to with stand harsh hot climates, ward off pests and disease and still bloom beautifully and successfully thrive. However, the Carefree Beauty Rose is the newer variety on the market that is touted to be even easier to grow than the Knock Out Roseper Guilford. The Houston (Texas) Rose Society awarded a grant to the Texas A & M University to hybridize a rose variety that would be well suited to hardiness zone 8A (which includes the Holmes County area). Thus, the CarefreeBeauty series was born. One could garner more information on the Carefree Beauty utilizing the internet at earthkindroses.com As the field trip tour was ending, Guilford offered the following bit of sage advice to all us garden clubbers eager to go home and grow roses. The secret to growing roses is selecting the right plant, selecting the right location for planting, utilizing full sunshine and water, water, water. ank you to our media partners: WKMG Local 6 and Magic 107.7. When arthritis has your knees creaking and your joints aching, it can be a miserable time. Your pets may feel your pain as well. Arthritis in pets can be just as agonizing as it is in humans, and the disease and its effects are very similar in both pets and people, says Dr. Sharon Kerwin, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences who specializes in orthopedic medicine. Kerwin says animal arthritis attacks bones and joints much the same way as the disease does in humans, but with one noticeable exception it can strike some animals, especially dogs, before they become a 1-year-old. Any animal can get arthritis, but dogs and cats especially seem to be prone to get the disease, Kerwin says. It is not unusual for a dog to have a check-up in its first year, and the veterinarian can already detect signs of arthritis. It means the owner will almost certainly have to make some adjustments in the way the animal is cared for and the amount of exercise and movement the dog gets. Certain breeds are especially prone to get arthritis, and these include the Rottweiler, golden retrievers, and Labrador retrievers. Kerwin says there are several signs pet owners may look for if they suspect their animal might have arthritis. First is an obvious decrease in activity, she explains. The animal may not want to go as far as it used to on a walk. It may not want to walk at all. In cats, it is sometimes a little harder to detect arthritis, but the animal may appear to be less active and may have trouble jumping on top of a chair or table. Treatments can vary, depending on the severity of arthritis, Kerwin says. Surgery, she explains, is sometimes recommended, especially if a hip or other joint is severely affected. Drugs are often prescribed, and joint diets have also become available for dogs and cats in recent years, Kerwin explains. Physical rehabilitation can be a very effective treatment in controlling signs associated with arthritis. As with humans, weather changes especially colder weather can often be felt in bones and joints, and these changes can affect your pet, Kerwin adds. Probably the most frequent question veterinarians get asked about arthritis in pets is, Should I continue to exercise my pet? Theres no easy answer, Kerwin believes. Low-impact exercise, like a walk, is better than no exercise at all, Kerwin adds, Swimming is an ideal exercise for dogs if they will do it, and even cats can swim in a water treadmill. Thats why its best to consult with a veterinarian to get the treatment plans best suited for your pet. Pet arthritis is not a death sentence for your animal, but owners need to be aware that the animal cannot do certain things.

FAITH BSectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comBy Rev. James L. SnyderFinally, someone has come up with a weight loss program I can sink my teeth into without guilt. And, I say its about time. I cant speak for anybody else, but Im fed up with diet programs that simply beat me to death. Im tired of starving myself under the pretense of dieting, and exercising my body to the brink of absolute exhaustion. Its about time someone looked on the lighter side of dieting. According to a study in Athens, Greece, scientists have found a good laugh is a calorie burner not to be ignored. You can be sure this gained my attention. Some American researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of genuine giggling can burn off the number of calories found in a medium square of chocolate. These scientists discovered a way to measure how many calories people burn when they laugh. When I read this, I laughed for 39 minutes, allowing me to eat two medium squares of chocolate. At this rate, Ill be able to eat several pounds of chocolate a day. Now thats what I call a diet. According to their ndings, the average person burns 20 percent more calories when laughing, compared to not laughing. If somebody laughs for 10 or 15 minutes a day they would burn up to 50 calories, depending on body size and the intensity of the laughter. This means if I laughed for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I would burn enough calories to lose 4-1/2 pounds in a year. Thats nothing to laugh at. This means in 50 years I would completely disappear from the face of the earth. Which poses a question; when a person loses weight, where does that weight go? Im not one to jump on the latest bandwagon but there is nothing funny about carrying around extra weight. For some its like having a monkey on their back, for me its more like a gorilla. Up to this point, my weight loss program has been a laughing matter. Little did I know my laughing was burning calories. My exercise program has been a real joke, which may have done me good and I didnt know it. To be honest, my regimen has not produced the results I desired. Just a few years ago, I exercised my right as an American citizen to vote for the president of my choice, which has been quite taxing on me, you can be sure. This kind of exercise takes more out of a person than realized at the time and must be good because I lost a great chunk of money in paying my taxes this year. Every day I exercise my right to remain silent when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is giving me a piece of her mind. Although I have not lost any weight with this exercise, I havent lost any arguments, either. Personally, I think its a good trade-off. Now, with this new information I shall change my whole approach to dieting. Instead of working hard, exercising every day and watching what I eat, I shall throw caution to the wind and laugh all day long. I shall laugh off all criticism with good humor. I shall roll in the aisles with uncontrollable mirth. My only concern is that I dont die laughing. For the observant person, like Yours Truly, each day provides plenty of things to laugh about. My only problem is to know exactly where to start. I could start laughing at my Beloved but Im sure I would lose something other than weight, so I dont want to go there, if you know what I mean. A good guffaw, Ive discovered, carries more than just personal bene ts. An old proverb says, Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. So, I can see where my laughing is going to help other people lose weight. Why didnt somebody think of this before? I may have lost some time; but be assured I am determined to giggle my way to supreme health in the days and months ahead. To begin my regimen of laughter, I only need to wake up in the morning. Believe me when I say, not waking up in the morning is no laughing matter. When I wake up, I yawn, stretch and then go to the bathroom. One look in the mirror is good for a good belly laugh, which helps start the day in the right direction. For the next laugh, I turn to the early morning news programs, which is good for a laugh-a-minute. We truly live in a funny world, at least for the person who takes the time to see the funny side of the street. All those people on early morning television seriously think what they say is important. When in reality, very little of what they say makes any difference in anyones day. If they only knew how insigni cant their opinions are, they probably wouldnt get up in the morning and go to work. They give, on any given morning, sidesplitting, rib-tickling, laugh-a-minute exercises. If you happen to see me walking down the street with a smile all over my face, dont be alarmed. I am engaged in my Laughtercise for the day. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (Proverbs 17:22). The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 352-687-4240 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

The conference was set up and planned by Regional Chaplain Director David Ring. The 55 state and volunteer prison chaplains also completed the orientation and leader training course required for volunteers to use the lifeskills transitions courses developed by the Family Integrity Training Inc. Chaplain Alex Taylor and Chaplain Gingrich gave updates on several needed topics. One was the effectiveness of educational programs in reducing recidivism (return to incarceration). Another was the implementing of the Second Chance program offered through TBN and how some facilities reported that it was especially improving the morale of the youth offenders causing less security issues. The nal presentation was an actual volunteer training session put on by Family Integrity Training Inc. Pastor Ed White presented FITs 100-hour, faith-based curriculum as a means to equip Chaplains and volunteers in offering courses which could meet the states requirement of each inmate exiting the state prison system. The state requires that each inmate complete an approved 100-hourtransition course before leaving the prison system. FITs Integrity Program meets this requirement. Pastor White worked with The Florida Department of Corrections to formulate such a program in 2005. He enlisted the help of Dr. Don Pratt who developed the present program. The program combines ve courses from the Living Free curricula established by Jimmy Ray Lee and three other books written by Dr. Pratt to speci cally address the criteria established by the Florida Legislature. Fred DeMouey, FIT Board member, explained the effectiveness of these lessons in changing lives. He is convinced that rehabilitation is much more effective in the long term and a very possible answer to keeping communities safe. This is true because the majority of prisoners will be released back into the community they came from. They will either be changed or hardened. It would behoove us to put our resources to work so that change happens in as many people as possible. Beverly Shatterly, Panhandle FIT Coordinator, explained how to implement the program by reviewing the Anger Your Master or your Servant student manual. She expressed her view that the course materials are so well written anyone can facilitate a class with minimal training. The secret to its effectiveness is an interactive emphasis which is not preachy. She said You actually get into the minds of the students and they open up in a way as never before. Many will let down their guard and share things that helps the whole group move forward. The FIT transitional course is actually a collection of eight separate courses each featuring a speci c life skill. Titles from the Living Free series are: Insight, a lesson in nding the roots of addictions; Free to Grow, lessons on dealing with lifes disappointments; Godly Parenting, Handling Loss and Grief; and Anger our Master or our Servant, a course dealing with topics often court-ordered by judges. Dr. Pratts courses are Parenting 101, Dating and Marriage, and Financial Success from Scratch. All these courses re ect real-life issues that face an inmate when transitioning back into the main stream of society. The cost to train each student is $10 per unit. The total 100-hour program is only $60 per student. The costs are kept low because all staff and volunteers pay their own way, many driving hundreds of miles to teach a class. Because inmates do not have the means to buy the materials, FIT relies on fundraisers from churches and donations to fund a course. More information can be found at the FIT website at www.100hour. org. Donations are welcome and can be done through the website or by phone 941-739-1338. Though some of the courses were written for churches and some for prisoners, they have all proved to be useful in any settingwhere life-skill development is important. This includes prisons, jails, probation, community programs, transitional houses, churches, and Sunday School classes. If you have a heart for this type of ministry or like to learn more, you can become a certi ed FIT volunteer and learn how to use these materials at one of our training classes. The next training in your area will be on May 19 in Crestview, Florida. It is an all-day orientation session and you can register online at our FIT website www.100hour.org. The cost is $35 for regular registration or $25 for preregistered online. Wednesday, May 16, 2012 But when the holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be lled with power, and you will be my witnesses...

We can go from feeling sad, lonely and self-pitying to happy, connected and blessed to be alive in no time at all. One of the reasons why this is the case is that gratitude is almost always directed towards other people. We should be thankful for what others have done for us or have given to us, or simply that they have been there for us in a time of need. This connection with other people is very powerful and gratitude often immediately connects us with others. Though we tend to think of the individual as the basic unit or atom of the larger society, an isolated and unconnected individual is very atypical. To paraphrase Aristotle, only a god or a monster would live apart from all society. Some gratitude exercises which work well are to think of people you are thankful for but who you havent actually thanked, and then send them a short thank you note, e-mail or text message. Another one which works well is to keep a gratitude journal, where you write down what you are thankful for at the end of each day. A related exercise is to think about what went well during the day and why, and to write about that. Christopher SimonRejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is Gods will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser1364 N.

Department of Corrections of cials included: Assistant Secretary of Institutions Timothy Cannon, Assistant Secretary of ReEntry William Carr, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Administration Michelle Pyle, Legislative Affairs Director Will Kendrick, Regional Director of Institutions Chris Southerland, Regional Director of Community Corrections Barbara Scala as well as local wardens and community corrections staff. The day began with words of welcome from Warden Brian Riedl and a continental style breakfast. Following breakfast Assistant Warden Kish briefed the group on what to expect during the rest of the day. The attendees were then loaded into three transport vans and received into the Department of Corrections just as a new commitment would see RMC for the rst time. The group was treated to a tour of the Main Unit before being transported back to the training building for a power point presentation and a grilled steak lunch. The presentation began with a look into the role Community Corrections plays in and around the City of Lake Butler and the surrounding communities. The next portion offered insight into the history of RMC and its sister units as well as our on-site hospital and secure ward at Memorial Hospital Jacksonville. In addition, the presentation highlighted some of the many Re-Entry initiatives and community projects that RMC has been able to take part in over the past couple of years and the group was educated as to why Re-Entry bene ts not just those being released from prison, but each and every citizen of the State of Florida. When the presentation was complete the oor was opened for anyone wishing to voice questions, concerns or to simply share their experiences. Many of those in attendance applauded RMC for its active role in the local communities, school system and drove home the point we have desperately wanted to get outthat RMC is much more than bricks, blocks and razor wire; we truly are a member of the community. The meeting came to a close with remarks from Director Southerland and Warden Riedl on what to expect in the way of future meetings and the direction the Florida Department of Corrections is heading. RMC would like to thank those who took time out of their busy schedules to attend this rst Community Advisory Meeting and we truly believe that through active partnerships with the community and local business leaders we can make a difference.
