Miss Firecracker Pageant held in Vernon And Mobile Too! Connect With Us 24/7 Saturday, JUNE 9 2012 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org CHIPLEY Police Chief Kevin Crews presented the City Council members with statistics, which show the racial demographics of vehicle stops made by police in 2012, during the councils June workshop on Thursday. According to the numbers, Chipley Police pulled over 108 white drivers and 47 black drivers during that period. According to the report, 11 Hispanic drivers were stopped during that period as well as one Asian and one other. The statistics were for the dates of Jan. 1 to April 30, and Crews shared the report in response to comments made at the May 8 regular council meeting. Dorothy Harper of Chipley told the City Council at the May 8 meeting that Chipley Police seemed to be pulling over black drivers when they are coming home from working on the night shift, and said it was a case of pro ling. Harper was invited to meet with City Administrator Dan Miner and Chief Crews, but she never contacted Crews about a meeting, the police chief said Thursday. When this came up, it caught me off guard, Crews said. We dont operate that way. He prepared the report and gave the council several department press releases. Weve had a real busy month, and the report doesnt show all of it by far. Crews also said the department is making headway on the Wells Fargo Bank robbery case from April 28. Weve got a very promising lead, and were still working the case, Crews said. I hope by next month I will be able to share some good news on that. The council also discussed the citys Department of Transportation Safety Funding with DOT representative Jonathon Harris. Harris said sidewalk projects are considered in part based on how they improve safety, and recommended the citys safety Crews responds to harassment complaint See COMPLAINT A2 Special To The News Saturday the Vernon Community Center was the site of the annual Miss Firecracker Pageant.

According to Esto Fire Chief Charles Corcoran the rst re happened on Friday, June 1, at around midnight in a vacant building at 1024 U.S. Highway 79 in Esto. Corcoran said he was con dent to say that it was a case of arson in light of the evidence found at the scene. First of all its a vacant building, said Corcoran. That means that the building was unoccupied and the electricity and other utilities had been turned off to the building. This eliminates the possibility that it was caused by faulty wiring, etc. Corcoran said with further investigation it was determined that someone had been living in the vacant building recently. He then explained that it was determined to be arson because of the location of the re. It couldnt have been a cooking re because its in the back of the area, where its cluttered and away from the area where he was eating, said Corcoran. You can tell that the re was set deliberately. He said that the re was small scale and took very little water and manpower to put out. The second re occurred on Saturday, June 2, at 9:11 p.m. at The Esto Assembly of God Church, which has been unused since January. This re was much bigger, requiring the services of Pitman, Hartford, Graceville, Bonifay and Esto re departments until 3:30 the next morning. We used over 5,000 gallons of water and ve re departments on scene, said Corcoran. Bonifay stretched the line and protected the surrounding houses, Graceville stretched and operated the lines into the building and we had Pittman and Hartford as backup. Corcoran explained that without a re hydrant to draw water from, the re departments have to use their tankers and once one was empty another would take their place while the other lled back up and the process would repeat itself until the re was out. The re could have easily spread to the surrounding houses due to the dry conditions and there was a wooden fence so close to the church, said Corcoran. We had West Florida Electric out there in about 10 minutes to kill the power and secure the area from electrical issues. This was a well contained re. Corcoran said that both res are still under investigation.

When asked about fund ing for speed bumps, Har ris said DOT funds are available, but added that the funding is very com petitive. The same would go for DOT funding for traf c controlling devices such as the speed trailers which use radar to tell drivers what their speed. Washing ton County had one of the trailers, but it is currently out of order, Crews said. Crews added that his department had applied for DOT funding three or four times but had never received funding. Theyd be more likely to give funding to the coun ty, he said.

Roulhac Middle School announces academic awards By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @CatsPitstop firstname.lastname@example.org Jimmie Johnson challenged the Monster Mile in Dover last weekend and came out the victor. This was Johnsons seventh win at Dover giving him the privilege of being in the same category with some of the best drivers in NASCAR history. Way to go Jimmie. If you are one of the many NASCAR fans saying there havent been enough of the Big Ones, that all changed on the Monster Mile last weekend. It started in lap nine, which brought out the rst caution and the one and only red ag of the race, when there were 13 cars taken out in what some are calling the biggest wreck of the season so far. Those taken out in that accident were Tony Stewart, who later came back onto the tack and nished the race, Landon Cassill, David Gilliland, Juan Pablo Montoya, Casey Mears, Travis Kvapil, Michael McDowell, Dave Blaney, Scott Speed, Stephen Leicht, Reed Sorenson and Joe Nemechek. All drivers thought their cars were running great. That was the major accident of the day and it happened early there were still six other cautions during the race. There were three cautions caused by blown engines, in lap 111 for caution number two was David Rutimanns engine, lap 345 was the sixth caution it was out because of Kyle Buschs engine and then in lap 363 for the seventh and nal caution of the race Jeff Burtons engine blew. There was only one other wreck during the race that brought out caution number three on lap 164, when Carl Edwards plowed the wall. The other two cautions, caution four on lap 226 and caution ve on lap 340, were brought out for debris on the track. In Other NASCAR News, Kurt Busch was at it again in Dover after the Nationwide Race, he just doesnt know when to walk away. Busch was involved in an altercation with Sporting News reporter Bob Pockrass. Pockrass was asking Kurt about his on going run-in with Justin Allgaier during last Saturdays race at Dover, and if being on probation had anything to do with the way he handled it. Kurt in return answered It (probation) refrains me from beating the (expletive) out of you right now because you ask me stupid questions. Busch went on to say, But since Im on probation, I suppose thats improper to say as well. Kurt has been suspended from all NASCAR sanctioned events until June 13 and his probation has been extended until Dec. 31. As most of us know Kurt is going through a divorce. But really is that any reason to be a jerk. Kurt, leave your personal business at home or at least in your motor home, and keep it off the track. I know there are still fans out there but I have a feeling that he is losing more and more everyday because of his behavior. Mr. Finch has reached an agreement with David Reutimann to drive the No. 51 of Phoenix Racing Sunday at Pocono. There will be no Nationwide race today. The Pocono 400 will begin at 12:18 p.m. Sunday. The race will be aired on TNT. Last years winner was Jeff Gordon. RESULTS FROM DOVER SPRINT CUP 1. Jimmie Johnson 2, Kevin Harvick 3. Matt Kenseth 4. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 5. Clint Bowyer 6.

For more information or questions email the Art Camp Director at wvanl@ bellsouth.ne t Saturday, June 9, 2012 Everybody is a teacher. Each person, in his or her own way, has something to teach others. Even small children can teach us lessons. Ive taught classes in a university setting, and Ive taught in one-on-one tutoring sessions. But Ive also been a teacher without even realizing it, and so have you. By that, I mean there are things we do every day that are being observed by others, whether were aware of it or not. In the classroom of life, there are both teachers and students. Weve all played both roles. But sometimes, we overlook our roles as teachers. If you think that you dont have anything worth teaching, think again. Instead of focusing on what we cant teach, maybe its time to consider the skills and ideas we have that are worth passing along to others. If youve ever shown someone how to change a at tire, play a musical instrument, cook a meal, plant a ower, catch a sh or say a prayer, congratulations, youre a teacher. And, as Ive already noted, youre a teacher whether youre aware of it or not. Somebody, somewhere is observing your behavior. There are times when you might not have realized that you were teaching a lesson, but you were. Some of those lessons were very good ones. Others were, perhaps, less than optimal. Unfortunately, theres also such a thing as negative teaching. If you teach others through your actions that its okay to be spiteful, people will learn something from that. Kids, in particular, are quick learners. What are they learning from parents who constantly act as if their own children are horrible, unwanted burdens? What do we, as a society, learn from extremism, discrimination, impatience or constant negativity? What are people learning from you? Take inventory of what you have thats worth teaching. Theres more than you might think. You might be able to teach complex mathematical equations, or you could teach someone to bake a pie. You can teach a child to throw a softball, or help someone from another country improve their English. You can teach knitting, gardening, sewing, mechanics, anything at all. Use your imagination. Try volunteering your time to help others learn something new. Likewise, take stock of what you dont want to teach others. If you have a problem with your temper, just remember that every time you lose your cool, somebodys watching. When you behave in a rude, irrational or hostile manner, you can rest assured that someone will notice. The person noticing might be your own child or a total stranger, but somebodys going to walk away with an impression. Many religions teach that humans are being directly observed by God. So when youre chewing out that checkout clerk at the convenience store, just remember that God created that person. The same divine force that created the beauty of the rising sun also made this human being standing in front of you, the one youre now treating like dirt. Thats a creation of God youre trashing. And teaching. Do you really want to teach people that its okay to curse at someone because your 15-cent coupon expired yesterday, or because you got a few pickle slices on your burger when you didnt order it that way? The good news is that nearly all situations can be turned around. Maybe you can teach, instead, that its possible to be polite and cheerful even when you dont get your own way. You can teach others that they, too, can remain positive when facing disappointments both large and small. If youve taught some negative lessons in the past, dont worry. Any good teacher knows that its never too late to change lesson plans. Just remember that your students, some of whom you may never know by name, are watching your example. Be sure to set a good one. Recently, many people across the nation and in our local area graduated from school. Theyve now completed their studies at that particular institution. But with every ending comes a beginning. New doors will open for them. There may be a different school to attend now, but even if these graduates never set foot in another classroom, theyre still students. Thats because we never stop being students in lifes classroom. And well never stop being teachers, either.
