Connect With Us 24/7 Saturday, JULY 28 2012 Volume 89, Number 30 Bay will not be allowed to drill wells in Washington By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE Bay County failed to demonstrate it is entitled to draw water from a well eld near the Washington County border, an administrative law judge ruled Thursday. Judge David Maloney, in a 95page ruling on evidence presented during several days of hearings last fall, recommended the Northwest Florida Water Management District deny Bay County a permit to drill wells that opponents said would threaten the lakes of Sand Hills. The proposed wells have been controversial since Bay County applied for a permit to drill them in March 2010. Bay County initially wanted a permit to draw an average 10 million gallons of water per day later decreased to 5 million gallons per day from the Floridan Aquifer for 20 years. Washington County and The Knight Trust, which owns a considerable amount of land on both sides of the county line, appealed to the Division of Administrative Hearings. Its a complicated issue, but it comes down the basic questions: Do you need the water, and will it cause environmental harm? said Doug Manson, lead attorney for the Knight Trust. And they failed on both of those. Maloney wrote that Bay County and the district would need to establish three things for the permit to be granted: that there was a need for the water in Bay County, that the drawdown of water wouldnt affect the environment and that it was in the public interest to allow Bay County to take the water. Both parties hired numerous Possum Pageant tonight Festival to start Friday with royalty From Staff Reports WAUSAU The 43rd annual Wausau Possum Festival is almost here, and tonight the Miss Funday Pageant begins at 6 p.m. in Wausau. The pageant will feature dozens of youngsters vying for titles and trophies. The pageant will be at the Possum Palace, and there is a $3 admission fee. The Miss Funday pageant is the precursor to the annual festival itself, which begins in earnest at 6 p.m. Friday with the annual Possum King & Queen Contest. Saturday, Aug. 4, is the annual Fun Day and has no admission charge. The day kicks off with the Wausau Masonic Lodge pancake breakfast at 6 a.m. At 7:30 a.m., the Possum Trot 5K Run/Walk in downtown Wausau starts, and at 9 a.m. the Invocation and Welcome at the Possum Palace of cially opens the event. From 9:45-10:30 a.m., musician Billy Lipford will perform at the Possum Palace. At 10 a.m., the Fun Day By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Using a boat ramp in Washington County might start costing shermen $40 a year. The Board of County Commissioners asked Attorney Jeff Goodman to come up with an ordinance instituting county park user fees of $40 per year for a family of four during the BOCC meeting on July 19. The fee would include boat ramp usage and camping at county maintained parks. Public Services Director David Corbin told the board that every Monday, his staff of three is busy trying to collect all the garbage left at county parks over the weekends. The county Parks and Recreation Department maintains public parks and boat landings along the banks of the Choctawhatchee River, Holmes Creek and on many lakes, according to the county website. According to the website, the county has constructed several boat ramps with monies from Florida Boating Improvement Program grants grants that are administered through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. Cedar Tree Boat Ramp, Jenkins Landing Boat Ramp and Stewart Lake Boat Ramp are some of the boat ramps either refurbished or constructed through these grants, according to the website. There are also boat ramp facilities at Two Creek Estates (Fanning Branch Park) and Litard Log. The department employs inmate supervisors and use inmate labor to construct, refurbish and upkeep the parks and boat landings, according to the website. The department also is responsible for the various county parks and local community centers, Theater can be cleaned of mold By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY There was much applause at the Washington County School Board meeting Tuesday at Roulhac Middle School when it was reported that mold levels in Spanish Trail Playhouse were acceptable.

Community centers include Blue Lake Community Center, Five Points Community Center, Hinson Crossroads Community Center, Orange Hill Community Center and the Sunny Hills Community Center. Our budget is only $6,000 a year, Corbin said. We can only do what we can do. I know we need this, but I dont want to shove it though in just one meeting, said County Commissioner Charles Brock. Chairman Hulan Carter said the county would need a new ordinance setting the user fees for county facilities. Commissioner Todd Abbott compared using boat landings to using golf courses. Every time I go play golf, I expect to pay, he said. I wouldnt expect the golf course to be provided for free. I have no problem charging $40, Commissioner Donnie Strickland said as he made the motion for the county attorney to draw up an ordinance. Goodman said he would bring the use fee ordinance back to the BOCC in August. Parade will be held downtown, and the music continues from 10:30-11 a.m. with the Parish Family.

Events conclude with the Hog Callin Contest for adults at the Palace from 4:155:15 p.m. The One-Stop career center and the district data center are housed in the historic high school, along with the Spanish Trail Playhouse. The mold inspections were requested after district employees working in the old high school reported health concerns. Much of the damage came from water leaks that were not repaired or from HVAC lines that were backed up and over owing, Zak said, resulting in water and mold growth. The north wing of the old high school was not inhabited, and the high temperatures in there contributed to the mold growth, he said. Superintendent Sandra Cook said the air-conditioning had been shut off to the north wing of the building. There are two layers of ceiling tiles in the old school, and most of the mold is found in the upper level of tiles, Zak said. By your report here, do you think we need to move out of the building? Board Member Susan Roberts asked. Everyone has a different reaction to mold, Zak said. But there is not extreme mold proliferation in the air. Zak said the report recommends all water and mold affected building materials should be properly remediated. GLE does not provide cleaning services, he said, but they do recommend steps to take to correct the mold problem. It is a standard remediation protocol, he said. We have a general scope of the work that needs to be conducted. When you walk through the Spanish Trail Playhouse side of the building, its exciting, Board Member Terry Ellis said. You see an example of a community coming together to make things happen. The theater was renovated with more than $21,000 in donations, and none of the money used came from tax dollars or grant funds, said Kevin Russell, director of the Spanish Trail Playhouse. If you want to see what can be done with an old high school, I recommend you go to Hartford, Ala., and look at the old Geneva County High School, said Board Member Wayne Saunders. The city of Vernon has not done a bad job, either. Board Member Pam Cates said if the school district does as some point move our programs out of the old high school, she would like to see it turned over to the Spanish Trail Playhouse with a stipulation that if they ever moved out, then it would revert back to the school district. Russell said he would like to see the old high school become a community arts center one day, with classrooms available for teachers of art and music classes and workshops. Board Member Vann Brock said it would have been very dif cult to relocate the data center, especially with school about to be back in session. We live in the South, mold is always a problem, Roberts said. We had to be concerned about our peoples health, and this is wonderful news for us. Now we know the direction we need to head in. Cook said she was not on a vendetta against the theater nor was she trying to bulldoze the old high school. I am 100 percent in support of the Spanish Trail Playhouse, she said. The next step will be for the district to seek an estimate on the cost of clearing the building of mold. experts, who testi ed to the environmental effects; Maloney found the Knight Trusts experts and evidence more convincing. According to the ruling, Bay County and the district couldnt establish with the evidence they presented that Bay County needed the water because the county already has a water supply suf cient to meet the demands of the population. The plan was for the well eld to serve as a backup water supply in the event the Deer Point Lake reservoir, Bay Countys current water source, was contaminated. Maloney also decided taking the water would not be in the public interest, in part because the permit didnt restrict emergency withdrawals to an amount necessary for essential use. The failure to show what the impacts will be to these natural systems of extraordinary ecological and environmental quality is weighty when balanced against a need that doesnt exist and that may never arise Maloney wrote. Representatives of Bay County and the Northwest Florida Water Management District declined to comment on the ruling Thursday. This is a win for the environment and a win for the people who live in the lakes region, said Audubon Florida executive director Eric Draper, who testi ed during the hearings and worked to organize opposition to the permit among people who live near the lakes. That the Knight Trust was involved and willing to contribute resources to opposing the permit was important, Draper said. It made all the difference, because they were able to hire all the experts, Draper said. Manson said Maloneys factual ndings were very binding, but his recommendation could theoretically be ignored. Though he was reluctant to count chickens Thursday, he thinks Maloneys ruling should put the issue to rest. That will probably mean that there wont be a well eld there for a long time, Manson said.

By Perry Wells Special to the News C HI P LE Y Former Chipley resident Mary Wells Perdue died in Pensacola July 8. She was a graduate of Vernon High School in 1947. She worked for the Florida State Welfare Department in Chipley. She was born Feb. 15, 1928, in Caryville to Alex Wells and Arleva Cook Wells. Mary was the fourth child born to this couple. The young family was forced to ee their Caryville home in the July 1929 ooding of the Choctawhatchee River. Almost all their household goods were destroyed, as were the belongings of many other families in the area. The family moved to West Bay Florida, where they became reestablished and returned to Washington County in December of 1929. Mary graduated from Vernon High School in the class of 1947 as valedictorian of the class. She worked in Chipley with the Florida State Welfare Department as it was known in those days. Mrs. Lillian (Jack) Hardin was her supervisor and continued to remember Mary fondly and often asked about her even in her declining years. While living in Chipley, Mary met and married T. Julius Perdue, a Bell Telephone Company employee who was assigned to temporary duty here from his home base in Pensacola. The marriage was held in Bethel Primitive Baptist Church on June 4, 1950. The couple lived their entire 62 years of marriage in Pensacola. This lady was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Lee E. Wells and Parker Wells, and one sister, Arkie Wells Revel. Surviving Mary Wells Purdue are her husband, Julius, sons, Stephen and wife Joyce of Chattanooga, Tenn., Dennis and wife Teri of Lynn Haven, Fla. She has one daughter, Lisa Perdue Szuch and husband Cliff of Gulf Breeze, Fla. The grandchildren are Jeremy Perdue and Ryan, Connor and Nathan Adams. Other survivors include her brothers Rufus Wells of Ocala, Harrell Wells of Phenix City, Ala., John Alex Wells, Jr. of Pensacola and Carlton Wells and Joel Wells with Bonifay addresses. Her sisters are Wilma Wells Stubbs of Vernon, Imogene Wells Birge of Caryville and Annie Lou Wells Richard of Phenix City, Ala. She has a host of cousins and other relatives in the Washington County area. Burial was in Bayview Memorial Park in Pensacola. Imagination is incredibly powerful. Theres a reason we encourage children to use their imaginations. We know, instinctively, that imagination holds the key to the future. But imagination isnt just for kids. As adults, we tend to put our imaginations on the back burner. Thats unfortunate. The same power that allowed us as children to transform an empty shipping box into a fortress or a dimestore ring into the crown jewels of England can still be a powerful force today. As busy adults, we tend to see cardboard boxes and rings from bubble gum machines as unwanted objects to be tossed away and forgotten, but it wasnt always like that. We were once able to see the possibilities contained within simple things. Fortunately, its never too late to regain a sense of curiosity and wonder. Dont belittle anyone, especially children, for daydreaming. No great invention wouldve ever been produced without it. True, there are times when we must shift our focus toward work, school or whatevers currently demanding our attention, but theres always time for cultivating ones imagination. As for spirituality, it isnt merely about individual improvement but about improving the world in which we live. To that end, it is good idea to put our imaginations to work for the betterment of ourselves and others. We can not only undergo a personal spiritual transformation but can actively nd ways to promote charity, peace, education and better ways in which to treat our fellow human beings. Try imagining that the people around you are successful and happy. You might especially try this exercise with someone whos facing a struggle in his or her life. Lets say that its someone who drinks too much alcohol and has difculty holding onto a job. Now, instead of branding her as a op wholl never accomplish anything, try something new today. Try envisioning her as sober and successful. No, using your imagination wont turn this individual into an overnight success, but itll help you start seeing her in a whole different way. Perhaps youve never given much thought to what shed be like if she were, in fact, a success. But once youve established that vision in your mind, you may nd yourself treating her differently. Treating people with respect, even those who disappoint us, is very important. Behind every unsuccessful person lies a series of negative messages. People who have been given such messages often enough can become dejected enough to actually start believing them. This is especially true of young people. Children subconsciously want to live up to their parents expectations, even negative ones, and this pattern can continue into adulthood. Keep telling your kids theyre stupid and watch them start trying to live up to it in a desperate attempt to reinforce what they think you want from them. As I said, imagination is powerful. Instead of misusing its powers to see those around you as failures, try transforming your perceptions of people. True, you might not see immediate change in those individualsbut itll sure change you. Youll start treating people better, and will also waste less energy on nagging and belittling others. What kind of a person have you become as a direct result of your thoughts? Whats really in your mind and heart? Is your mind a garbage dump overowing with bitterness and hatred or does your heart reect the joy and light upon which your mind is continually focused? If you wish to change your heart, then change your mind. Turn your thoughts today toward envisioning an improved life, not only for yourself and your family but for the entire world.O ld T ime T ent R evival to be heldVER N O N An Old Time Tent Revival will be conclude tonight at 7 p.m. There will be a Dennis Boyett will be the guest speaker.

Pettis said in a news release that he believes in active leadership in the sheriffs of ce. He also wants the sheriffs of ce to provide honest, fair, consistent enforcement of the law, and display professionalism all of the time; not just after a major crime devastates the community or during an election year. Over the last seven years, in his career as a professional law enforcement of cer, Pettis said he has answered thousands of calls and held more than a couple of titles. Hes served as a deputy sheriff, city police of cer, K-9 of cer, a school resource of cer, a correctional of cer, a eld training of cer, and performed many untitled duties along the way. He is dual-certi ed in Corrections and Law Enforcement and has worked in both of these areas within the state of Florida. Along the way, Pettis said he has received countless hours of community-based training and is always on the lookout for more ways of enhancing his skills and establishing professional relationships with others in the national, state, and local law enforcement communities to better serve our county. I grew up here, my family is here, my roots are here. I went to school, church and found my rst job here, then I got lucky enough to marry a girl from close by and we agreed to live here, Pettis said. I love America and I know it is not too late for us to change; to be more realistic about our lives, our government and our future. I like and respect the people of our community. I enjoy talking and listening to people. I still believe in the creed of To Protect and Serve. With everything going on today, sometimes we forget our job as law enforcement of cers is to protect and serve the people; to make them feel safe at work, in their school, raising their children, shopping in our community and going to church in safety. Pettis said he also believes in customer service. Like you, I want to be treated with respect; regardless if I am a Democrat, a Republican, whether I am rich or poor, black or white, I simply want fair and equal treatment. This is one of the main By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY When Washington County voters turn out for the 2012 Primary Election, they wont be settling much in the way of county elections in fact, only the District 3 School Board race appears on Democratic and Non-Partisan ballots on Aug. 14.

The city council approved the engineering agreements for both the Community Development Block Grant Water system improvement and the State Revolving Fund Sewer line project on Monday. The city has been in need of replacing and expanding their sewer and water system for quite some time and with the widening of State Road 79 the project has been delayed that much more. Steps are being taken to insure that this project proceeds at a steady pace, said Grant Writer Nolan Baker. The CDBG Water system improvement engineering agreement is allowing Baker to set out the bid for the project and the SRF Sewer line project engineering agreement is to go forward with designing the project. Before the meeting began there was a moment of silence for the recently departed City Council Member Oscar Ward. He will be greatly missed by both the city hall and in the city of Vernon, said Mayor Michelle Cook. He will be missed by all. The council approved allowing a basketball tournament to be held on Aug. 11 at the Vernon City Hall gym. The council also approved of writer Brent Heards request to become an honorary citizen of Vernon, Fla. His request stated that he has many fond memories of Vernon and that his newest book would be entitled Postcards from Vernon.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, August 1, 2012 PETTIS from page A1 reasons I chose to run as a No Party Afliate candi date, to take the politics out of the sheriffs department; to bring back a time where anyone, at anytime, could express their concerns and issues knowing there would not be any kind of political pressure or repercussions. Pettis said he has not had the privilege to serve his country in the Armed Forc es, but said he is dedicated to supporting the men and women of the Armed Forc es and knows he owes his freedom to those who have served. Every county has weak nesses in its government, but these are weaknesses we can turn into strengths. Un fortunately, we are living in a time where our economy has suffered and so has our county, Pettis said. We see it in every phase of our daily lives. With continual cuts in funding, balancing the ad ministrative and operational budgets with less money has become a huge challenge. One thing I fully understand it is not the Sheriffs money; its our money and Ill tell you right now every dollar I spend will be spent wisely and only after all other op tions have been reviewed. Pettis said he is commit ted to Washington County. I want a true open door and open mind policy for every citizen. Ill keep the public informed on the ac tions of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and be held accountable for my actions as well as the ac tions of my deputies, Pet tis said. Looking forward, my biggest goal is to make every citizens of Washing ton County proud of their Sheriffs Ofce. Because after all is said and done, its not about making prom ises, its about producing results.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 Once again, it becomes the Prattlers self-assigned duty to report the death of another well known female country music celebrity, Kitty Wells, The Queen of Country Music. A thanks is extended to Robert K. Oermann, a longtime contributor to Music Row in Nashville and a respected music critic, author and historian. The death of Kitty Wells came on July 16. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, best known for her classic It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels, died peacefully at her Nashville home. Death was attributed to complications from a stroke. Johnnie Wright, age 97, who died on Sept. 27 following a lengthy illness, was the husband of Kitty Wells. My Prattle on October 12 combined the death of Wright along with that of country music legend, Wilma Lee Cooper, who passed away just days prior to Johnnie Wright. Since those deaths were reported, it has been the sad responsibility for the Prattler to inform readers in a full article of the passing of Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson. Only last week, mention was made of the death of Andy Grif th. Kitty Wells was born Muriel Ellen Deason in Nashville on Aug. 30, 1919. Her father was a guitarist, her uncle a ddler and her mother a gospel singer. She grew up hearing folk songs in her Nashville living room, learned guitar chords from a neighbor, sang hymns in church and listened to broadcasts of country music on the Grand Ole Opry. She left school at age 15 and went to work at the Washington Manufacturing Company, ironing new shirts for $9 a week. She formed a duo with her cousin, Bessic Choate. As the Deason Sisters, they had their own 15-minute morning radio show on WSIX in 1936. She married Johnny Wright in 1937 when he was 23 and she was 18. They became acquainted through a sister of Johnnys, who lived next door to the Deasons. The two musical neighbors soon began swapping songs. Johnny maintained his musical career, along with singing partner, Jack Anglin, while his wife continued her climb to success in music under her stage name of Kitty Wells. Johnnie dubbed her Kitty Wells from an Opry song done by the Pickard Family titled I Could Marry Kitty Wells. When rst married, the two formed a trio by adding Kittys sister, Louise, to the group and billed themselves as Johnnie Wright and the Harmony Girls. Louise later married Jack Anglin, Johnnies duo partner. Kitty Wells also sang with Johnnie & Jack in the early 1940s. They landed at KWKH and the Lousiana Haryride after World War II, and this is when she began singing again, using her new stage name, Kitty Wells. She also worked as a disc jockey billed as Rag Doll, because she sold quilting supplies on her show Between 1952 and 1966, Wells ruled the country popularity charts with a string of hits that de ned female country music of that era. She introduced Release Me, I Cant Stop Loving You, Makin Believe and It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels. This rst Nashville female country superstar in uenced a generation of stylists, including Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Jan Howard, Norma Jean, Pam Tillis, Connie Smith and Patty Loveless. In 1952, Johnnie and Jacks hit Poison Love, brought them to the Opry cast. Kitty had decided to retire from music when she was persuaded to record an answer song to the Hank Thompson hit The Wild Side of Life. By the fall of 1952, It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels was a sensation. It was considered controversial at the time because it spoke up for wronged women. Kitty Wells followed the blockbuster with a string of hit songs sung from a female point of view: Paying For That Back Street Affair (1953) (Cheatins a sin 1954), Theres Poison in Your Heart (1955) (Searching 1956), Repenting (1957) (Jealousy 1958), Your Wild Lifes Gonna Get You Down (1959) (Heartbreak U. S.A.1961), Will Your Lawyer Talk To God (1962) and more. She sang memorable duets with fellow superstars Red Foley, Roy Acuff and Webb Pierce, as well as her husband. During her career, Kitty Wells placed 81 titles on the county popularity charts and 35 Top 10 hits. She won a Pioneer Award from the Academy of Country Music in 1986. In 1989, she was nominated for a Grammy Award for Honky Tonk Medley, recorded with Loretta Lynn, K.D. Lang and Brenda Lee. She was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 1991.She retired from the road after a performance on New Years Eve, 2000. My thanks to cousin Kathleen Wells, a country music enthusiast, who rst informed me of Kittys death. Cousin Ron Taylor of Red Level, an authority in the country music eld, and Prattle reader Vernon Lewis, a Chipley native now living in Virginia, also emailed me of Kittys passing. Vernon Lewis wrote that he and his Chipley picking buddies had completed a gig on a Dothan radio station in 1952 and had stopped for gasoline when Kitty Wells came on the car radio with her hit record It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels. Hester and I saw Kitty Wells with the Johnny and Jack show at Ocean Opry, which may have been her last performance. We were able to wish her happy birthday as the date was only a few days away. She was warm and friendly to us, and we cherish that one visit. The services for Kitty Wells consisted of visitation on Thursday, July 19, from 2-8 p.m. and a funeral on Friday, July 20 at 1 p.m. My personal condolences to her family. See you all next week. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Kitty Wells from her Dust On The Bible Long Play Album cover. Mourning the loss of another country singer PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells Although the of cial back to school date is still a few weeks away, I heard an interesting talk Sunday about children and their development, based on research by the Search Institute. The Rev. Darby Neptune was speaking at Unity of Panama City on the 40 developmental assets for adolescents and how these metrics can predict the success, or lack of success, in youth. I am not a real big believer in, well, anything much less sociological mumbo-jumbo mixed in with a bunch of statistics, but the survey from the Search Institute was interesting in that the assets it surveyed included eight basic topics, broken down into two groups internal assets and external assets. The external assets were identi ed as support, empowerment, boundaries and expectations and constructive use of time. The Internal Assets were commitment to learning, positive Values, social competencies and positive identity. The eight assets are further divided into 20 internal and 20 external subcategories. On one level, the 40 developmental assets represent everyday wisdom about positive experiences and characteristics for young people, states on the website, search-institute. org. For example, under the external assets support heading, students were asked to rate topics such as family support, positive family communication, other adult relationships, caring neighborhood, caring school climate and parent involvement in schooling. Children responded on a survey indicating how much, or how little, of these in uences were in their lives. In addition, Search Institute research has found that these assets are powerful in uences on adolescent behaviorboth protecting young people from many different problem behaviors and promoting positive attitudes and behaviors. This power is evident across all cultural and socioeconomic groups of youth. There is also evidence from other research that assets have the same kind of power for younger children. Nearly 150,000 youth, grades six to 12, from 202 different communities across the U.S. were surveyed in 2003, and it was found that more of the assets that the children said they had in their lives, the less likely they were to engage in high-risk behavior, such as problem alcohol use, violence, illicit drug use or sexual activity. According to the website, the same kind of impact is evident with many other problem behaviors, including tobacco use, depression and attempted suicide, antisocial behavior, school problems, driving and alcohol and gambling. The Rev. Darby said she was living in Winter Park, Fla., when she rst heard of the Search Institute research and the communitys dismay when their af uent children barely scored higher than the national average of 18.3 assets. Neptune said 18 was the national average, and Winter Park scored 18.6. The number 18 was important, because, according to the research, students who scored 21 or high were dramatically less likely to get into trouble or drop out of school. Having more assets, according to the report, also mean the chances increased that the young people would have positive attitudes and behaviors. Many of the external assets deal not just with the childrens immediate family, but with their whole community schools, churches, neighbors and adults. Children who nd their community respects them and treats them as valued community members become valued community members. Those who do not feel connected to their communities suffer, and as a result, the community suffers. The Rev. Darbys advice was simple. Treat children with respect, and communicate with them. Typically adults shun children sometimes even their own children but the more engaged and accepted a child is by his community, the more he wants to be a part of the community, not a problem. In the end, it seems, at least according to the Search Institutes research, it really may take a village to raise a child. Whod have thunk it? Study shows it really does take a village RANDAL SEYLER Editor

The guest speaker for the lunch was Jim Appleman, former State Attorney for the 14th Judicial Circuit. Appleman was the state attorney for our area for 16 years. His remarks were nonpolitical as he explained how the judicial system in Florida operates. Following is a summary of Applemans explanation. The judicial process is initiated when a complaint is led, which can be led by either law enforcement personnel or a resident. Once led, law enforcement will investigate and try to determine if there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed and who committed the crime. Once probable cause has been determined, law enforcement will arrest the individual or individuals suspected of a crime. One notable exception to probable cause is in the case of domestic violence. If investigating domestic violence, law enforcement is compelled to remove at least one of the parties to the violence, even if unable to determine probable cause. The reason for this is that if one of the parties is not removed, the domestic violence usually begins anew upon the departure of law enforcement. Removal of at least one party protects both parties. When arrested a suspect is con ned to a jail. His rst appearance before a judge, appropriately called First Appearance, is simply to determine if the suspect is a risk for ight or will show in court when required. To determine this, the judge considers the charges, the defendant, the defendants past history and whether or not the defendant can afford an attorney. Depending upon the circumstances, a suspect may be released, may be released after posting bail or may be ordered held in jail. First Appearance makes no attempt to evaluate the validity of the charges, but simply to assess the risk of ight of the defendant. Only after First Appearance does the state attorneys of ce become involved. The state attorney, or one of his deputies, will meet with law enforcement to evaluate the case. If there appears insuf cient evidence to go forward with a trial, the state attorneys of ce has the discretion to dismiss the charges. If the state attorneys of ce and law enforcement nd there is suf cient reason and evidence to proceed, the state attorney les for information, the formal document that may result in a trial. The defendant is then arraigned and given the information the state has against him or her, and the judge makes a determination (again) as to whether or not the defendant can afford an attorney or should be assigned a public defender (lawyer). Both the State Attorneys Ofce and the Public Defenders Of ce are funded through tax revenue. Once a defense lawyer has been hired or assigned the process of Discovery begins. The state attorneys of ce must turn over to the defense any evidence that they possess concerning the case. The defense lawyer(s) and the state attorney meet to discuss the case to see if it should be resolved without going to trial. In Florida, the victim of the crime is also involved in this process. Depending upon the suspected crime, the evidence, and the defendant, the state attorney and defense may agree to a plea deal which avoids a timely and costly trial. In a plea deal, the defendant agrees to plead guilty in exchange for any one or combination of reduced charges, probation or a reduced sentence. The presiding judge has the nal approval authority over any plea deal. Of note, in Discovery the state must turn over to the defense all information it has pertaining to the case. The defense does not need to give the state all information it possesses, but it must inform the state of all witnesses it intends to call and the state has the right to depose (question) all potential defense witnesses before the trial. As opposed to the federal system, the Florida system seeks to avoid any surprises by either the state or the defense during the trial. In Florida, as in all of the United States, a defendant has a right to a trial by a jury composed of peers; the right to cross examine all witnesses; and the right to not testify against oneself. Appleman informed the club that most cases are resolved through some sort of plea bargain. A small percentage go to trial. This saves the state time and money. It costs Florida about $50 per day in operating costs to keep a person in jail. This does not include the cost of building the jail or prison. The Kiwanis club meets Tuesdays at Patillos restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus at noon. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or call David Solger, membership chairperson, at 850-638-1276.

Special To The News TALLAHASSEE In conjunction with the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Governors Commission on Jobs for Floridians with Disabilities released its premier 2012 annual report recently. As we work to make Florida the best place for businesses to create private-sector jobs, we must also be sure that those persons with disabilities who want to work have the opportunity to do so, Gov. Rick Scott said. Having a job adds to any persons dignity and purpose and opens doors to independence, which is especially important for Floridians with disabilities. Gov. Scott created the Commission through Executive Order 11-161 to study and nd ways to address the disparity in employment for persons with disabilities relative to the general population. Charged by the executive order to provide public policy solutions and strategies to the Governor and state policymakers, the Commission provides three primary recommendations to serve as initial steps for advancing job and employment opportunities for Floridians with disabilities: The Commission recommends streamlining information and identifying a single-point of contact for employers so they can easily navigate the disability system and expand their pool of quali ed candidates. The Commission recommends the development of a long-term communications plan for the state to promote awareness among employers in order to address misperceptions of persons with disabilities. The Commission determined persons with disabilities need to be given as many rsthand experiences as possible to participate and compete in the workforce. The Commission recommends state policymakers, business leaders, and community partners promote and utilize internship and work experience opportunities for individuals with disabilities as a key tool to improving perceptions and addressing the employment disparity confronting these individuals. The Commission will continue to hold periodic meetings around the state to seek input from employers in order to better understand how the state can assist businesses in establishing a corporate culture that is enthusiastic about hiring persons with disabilities. The goal is to ful ll Governor Scotts top priority to ensure all Floridians are able to gain employment.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, August 1, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section There is a king mackerel tournament coming in August that Im sure many will want to enter. This is not one of those costly lifeor-death tournaments. Ive shed tournaments that offer large sums of money and they can bring out the worst in people. The tournament is hosted by the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association. The 16th annual MBARA Kingfish Tournament will be Aug. 25 in Mexico Beach. The Captains Party is on Friday night Aug. 24. The prize money certainly is enough to warrant the entry fee, but not large enough to stay up late into night trying to gure out a way to cheat. Entry is $150 per boat and you can sh as many anglers as you can safely put on a boat. You can leave from anywhere and dock anywhere, but you must weigh your sh at Mexico Beach Marina from 1-5 p.m. CDT. You can bring your sh to the scales by boat, car, horse or truck. Fishing will begin at 5 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. This is a one-day boat tournament. Prizes for the sh are as follows: King Mackerel, 1. $3,000, 2. $2,000, 3. $1,000; Spanish Mackerel, 1. $500, 2. $300, 3. $200; Wahoo, 1. $1,000, only one sh eligible. Since 1997 the MBARA has raised and spent more than $1 million on more than 200 arti cial reefs off Mexico Beach, Panama City and Port St. Joe. All reefs are public numbers and are posted on the organizations website. You also can see underwater video of these reefs on the website as well. This is an all-volunteer organization. You can preregister online at www.mbara.org or you can preregister at Mexico Beach Marina or at Half Hitch Tackle in Port St. Joe. You can read a detailed explanation of the rules at www.mbra.org and read a question and answer section for your information. If you own a small boat like mine, this is the tournament to enter. You would never have to leave the buoy line to catch either a king or Spanish mackerel. As a matter of fact, a Spanish would be what I would be shing for. Bring the family and have a good time. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Pollinators THE GREAT By STAN KIRKLAND FWC T heres a growing movement in Florida, and the rest of the country, for that matter, to recognize the crucial value of pollinators and the role they play in agriculture and forestry. Pollinators include insects such as bees, beetles, ies, butter ies and moths, and other wildlife species such as birds and bats. Pollinators are absolutely crucial to the things we eat and, in some cases, what we wear, said Arlo Kane, a wildlife biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Pollinators move pollen between owers and this annually accounts for the production of $20 billion worth of vegetables, fruits and nuts. Kane was one of seven speakers at a recent pollinator short course in Marianna. In addition to the FWCs presence, the 150 participants who attended were hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service, National Wild Turkey Federation, University of Florida IFAS, and The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Unfortunately, pollinators, and particularly species of insects, are in decline across the country, according to Kane. There are 4,000 species of bees alone that are native to the United States and most have disappeared or are only a fraction of their original number. A National Academy of Sciences report says the decline in pollinators is due to habitat loss, diseases and widespread pesticide use. To stem the loss of pollinators, theres an emphasis to get gardeners, homeowners and landowners to help by planting wild owers and plants that are good for native bees and other insects. The plants should be native to our area, which means theyll likely require less fertilizer or water than plants from other parts of the country, Kane said. You also need a variety of plants so you have owering plants from the spring into the fall. Suggested areas for planting native wild owers include the borders or edges of farm elds, in between the rows of planted pines; roadsides, and gardens. Kane said native wild owers and the insects they attract are also great habitat and feeding areas for wildlife such as bobwhite quail, wild turkeys, mourning doves and gopher tortoises. Information about Floridas native wild owers is available at local plant nurseries and online at awild owers. org or xerces.org The green anole is no chameleon By JESSICA BASHAM Special to the News/ Green anoles, a type of American lizard, are often called American chameleons because they can change color, but they are not chameleons at all. These anoles are the only native lizard in the southeastern United States that changes color, but it is only from bright green to brown or gray. Usually their change in color is due to stress, but also to temperature and mating. Males extend a bright pink dewlap (a piece of skin that unfolds from its throat) when looking for a mate or when warning other males to back off. Their head-bobs are like pushups and show the female and other males that they are strong. Mating season starts in the beginning of April and continues throughout the summer months. In south Florida, the mating season is a little longer. If you see a green anole bobbing up and down and showing his dewlap, look around: there may be a female nearby. A female lays one or sometimes two eggs every two weeks, usually in dirt or debris at the base of a plant. The green anole is the only native anole in the Southeast and is found from North Carolina west to Texas and throughout Florida. True chameleons, however, live in Africa, Madagascar, Portugal, Spain and parts of Asia. At least two species have been introduced into Florida. They can change to every color of the rainbow because of mood, temperature, habitat, stress, anger and defense. They often blend easily into their surroundings by changing color. Chameleons hold on to branches with their feet and coiled tails. Their long, curled tongues shoot out like arrows to catch prey. Anoles are small, long and slender. Like the chameleon, they have the ability to cling to objects but only because of a sticky pad on the underside of their toes. Their tails are not coiled but long and thin and can break easily. This is so they can escape predators. When caught by the tail, the lizard squirms until its tail breaks and it can escape to freedom. The confused predator is left with only the tail and wondering where its lunch has gone. Lizard tails will grow back a little. Watching green anoles is easy. Around homes, they hang from walls, scurry across sidewalks and driveways and climb shrubs, branches and trees. A little anole visits me daily. He perches on a railing outside my of ce window and bobs his head up and down, showing off his bright pink dewlap. Anoles generally have a territory, so chances are youll see one in the same place, day after day. For more information, you can visit http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich. S pecial to the NEWS/TIMES ADVERTISER Green anoles are mistakenly called American chameleons because they change color. However, green anoles only turn shades of green, brown or gray.

What challenges do you think the of ce you are seeking will face in the near future and what would you do to meet those challenges? With the failing US economy, I think Washington Countys revenues will fall short in reaching its goal to adequately provide proper services to its residents. I feel strongly about my number one goal, to attract jobs for this great county. Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls. I am a hard working, honest and moral Christian. If I tell you Ill do something, then you can take it to the bank. I am a fourth-generation Washington Countian.

I am retired and the only candidate in District 1 that can serve you full time. I was raised right, I lived right and I will do right by Washington County. John Pettis Cottondale Washington County Sheriff No party af liation What made you decide to run for this of ce? I like and respect the people of our community. I enjoy talking and listening to people. I still believe in the Law Enforcement creed of To Protect and Serve. With everything going on today, sometimes we forget our job as Law Enforcement Of cers is to protect and serve the people; to make them feel safe at work, in their school, raising their children, and going to church in safety. I will give it my all to rekindle the relationship between Law Enforcement and the community. I will give the community a chance to be involved in their Sheriffs Of ce. What qualities and experience do you have which make you quali ed for this of ce?

I am dual-certi ed in Corrections and Law Enforcement and I have worked in both of these areas within the State of Florida.

If so, list branch of service. I have not had the privilege to serve my country in the Armed Forces, but I am dedicated to supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and I know I owe my freedom to those who have served. What challenges do you think the of ce you are seeking will face in the near future and what would you do to meet those challenges? Unfortunately, we are living in a time where our economy has suffered and so has our county. We see it in every phase of our daily lives. With continual cuts in funding, balancing the administrative and operational budgets with less money has become a huge challenge. One thing I fully understand, it is not the Sheriffs money; its our money and Ill tell you right now every dollar I spend will be spent wisely and only after all other options have been reviewed. Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls. If ever you need me, I will make the time, Ill be there! I am committed to Washington County.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 There are a number of things around your house that can be deadly to your cats and dogs, some you may know, and some may be surprising. Some are even in your kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Dr. Dorothy Black, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVM), shares some enlightening information about common food items that may be toxic to your pet. According to Dr. Black, the following foods can be particularly dangerous to cats and dogs. These foods may not necessarily cause toxic reactions in every case of ingestion, but its just a good rule of thumb to keep these items off your kitchen counters and under no circumstances feed these foods to your pet, Black said. Grapes and raisins possess an unknown toxic substance that can lead to renal failure by an unknown mechanism. Toxic doses have been reported after ingesting just one to two grapes or raisins. Not all animals suffer kidney failure after grape/raisin ingestion and it appears to be an idiosyncratic reaction. Nevertheless, it is best to avoid this food for your dogs and cats. There is no known antidote, only supportive care and renal dialysis to support kidney recovery. Grapes can be particularly tricky for dogs, because many actually like to eat grapes, so you have to be especially aware, Black said. Our pets are amazing creatures, but they can really get into dangerous situations with human food very quickly. Chocolate is commonly known to be bad for pets. It contains two ingredients known to be toxic to dogs and cats, caffeine and theobromine. Dark chocolate is particularly harmful because it has a higher concentration of toxic metabolites than milk or white chocolate. Clinical signs of distress seen after chocolate ingestion include: anxiety/ anxiousness, hyperactivity, urination, elevated body temperature, seizures, and irregular heart rhythms. There is no antidote, but supportive care is usually successful for recovery. Xylitol is a common sugar substitute now used in many home kitchens. It is associated with a severe decline in blood sugar levels and liver failure if ingested by pets. The exact mechanism of the toxicity is unknown and there is no antidote. Supportive care is typically successful for treatment of hypoglycemia, however, liver failure may still occur and prognosis is guarded. It is important to remember that if you cook or use xylitol in your foods, that those foods should not be fed to pets, Black said. It is still toxic if used in cooking or baking. Onions, garlic, and chives are also toxic to pets. They contain the toxin allicin, which is released upon crushing or chewing the plant. Allicin damages the hemoglobin in red blood cells leading to anemia (such as Heinz body anemia and methemoglobinemia). Cats are especially susceptible to this toxin. There is no antidote, however, supportive care is typically successful. While cats are particularly affected by onions and garlic, dogs are especially susceptible to macadamia nut toxicity. An unknown toxin in the nut leads to difculty walking, high body temperatures, depression, and vomiting within one to two hours after ingestion. While no deaths have been reported to date, supportive care in the hospital is often required. Supportive care, which is the usual treatment for food toxicity, often works to recover pets who ingest these foods, Black said. But these supportive treatments to get pets back on their feet are often very costly for the owner, and difcult for the patient. In cases that require dialysis, pets have a difcult road to recovery. The foods mentioned here should be kept off countertops and out of reach of pets, and under no circumstances fed to dogs and cats. Preventing your pet from ingesting these items is the best way to keep them safe. But if they do ingest these foods, Dr. Black recommends contacting your veterinarian immediately.

Learning Religion by Heart In many cultures children are taught prayers and creeds shortly after they have begun to speak. With out understanding them, young children memorize their prayers and creeds. As these children grow in understanding, their parents may explain bits and pieces of the prayers if their children are curious and bold enough to ask. But, as a general rule, most children accept whatever their parents tell them, and parents assume wrongly, that be cause the children have learned their prayers that they also understand them. The prayers are reinforced by regular recita tions, at church and at home, but there is often little effort to explain or interpret them. When these children are old enough to be on their own, they will remember their prayers in the same way that they remember nursery rhymes; there will be a strong resonance and per haps even a feeling of comfort and safety associated with these prayers, but no deep understanding, and no live connection with ones faith. Are we attempt ing to instill faith in a way that is more appropriate to learning poetry or multiplication tables rather than having a genuine experience of God?

Deuteronomy 11:19 This Message Courtesy of Page 4 Wednesday, August 1, 2012 Rev. James L. Snyder It was just another day, and I was indulging a carefree moment of complaining about the weather. I cant believe its so hot today, I muttered. I thought I was talking to myself, but obviously, I had an audience. Have you ever said or did something not realizing somebody was watching you? Every time I am in a restaurant eating, I endeavor to remember there is an audience and try my very best not to spill the soup on my lap. Although, I must admit that that kind of lap dance always gets a vigorous round of applause from the audience. Dont ask me how I know. I thought in my own special way of thinking that I was alone only to nd out the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was within earshot of my remarks. I must say she is rather remarkable. Those earshot moments are quite extensive. I will not go as far as to say that she can read my mind, although I think she can, but she seems to know what I am thinking even before I go through the effort and labor of thinking. I do not know why I even spend the energy thinking on my own. Even when I do think up a thought of my own and go so far as to express it I am always challenged. The challenge is to not think that way. The challenger is my wife. Life would be so much easier, not to mention less stressful, if I just would quit thinking my own thoughts. It is when I am thinking my own thoughts that I get into trouble. Life would be so much easier if I allowed someone else to think my thoughts for me. After all, isnt that why men get married? Why women get married still baf es me. Getting back to my moment of complaining: I cant believe, I muttered, its so hot today. To which, my wife said, Dont you know its summer? And dont you know that its supposed to be hot during the summer? I did know that, but it did not make the heat any more bearable. Then she said something that rather confused me. I have been confused before. Confusion is a familiar territory to me. But this confusion was different. If, my wife said rather sternly, you cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen. What the kitchen had to do with it being hot outside is way beyond my pay scale. There was a brief moment when I almost threw caution to the wind and asked my wife what she meant by that comment. Boy, am I glad I didnt. I make it a practice to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible, especially when my wife is present. There is something about a kitchen that makes me rather nervous to the point of dropping her favorite cup and having it break all over the oor. I stay out of the kitchen, heat or no heat. If I remember correctly, my wife said as she stared at me rather intently, a few months ago you were complaining about how cold it was. She was right. It was not but a few months ago, I was complaining that it was so cold outside that I just could not bear it. Youre going to have to make up your mind. That was a serious admonition from her. For her to tell me to make up my mind sends some very contradictory messages to me. After all, she is forever making up my mind for me. She seems to know exactly what I want at the restaurant and before I can get a word in edgewise or otherwise, she has ordered for me. Im not complaining. She knows exactly what I want. Either, she continued, its too hot or its too cold. Now make up your mind. I smiled demurely in her direction and nodded in the af rmative. Not wanting to further the conversation I whispered very gently, Yes, dear. It concluded our tte--tte. Later on in the evening, we were watching television. It was the local news, and the special report of the day had to do with the record heat wave across our country. Its been a long time, the weatherman said, since weve seen temperatures this high. Boy, is it hot out there. I glanced in her direction as covertly as possible and noticed she was staring at me, just daring me to say something. There is a time to say something, and then sometimes something should not be said at all. I concealed my infectious grin as much as possible knowing that someone was watching me. Under my breath I whispered, I cant believe its so hot today. After all, it is summer and it is supposed to be hot. I just believe that everybody has the right to complain about the weather. I also believe that some people have the right not to hear me complain about the weather. It is a well-noted mark of wisdom to know when to speak and when not to speak. Solomon in the Old Testament had it right when he said, Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding (Proverbs 17:28 KJV). So, this is summer, but you did not hear it from me. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The nine-member board and of cers of the not-for-pro t 501(c)(3) Florida corporation based in Jackson County have been wrestling with the strategic planning for the organization since January. They completed the task in July and developed goals and objectives for the organization over the next three years. Getting started on such an arduous task takes creative leadership. TAG called upon Paul Smith, Kevin Yoder and Juanice Wengerd of Rivertown Community Church, who volunteered their time in two separate workshops to get the process started. Then Nancy Zurenda, TAG president, took the reins and guided the board and other interested members through the goal setting and planning process. Much of the work was hammered out in the conference room at the Jackson County Public Library and by individual board members. Strategic planning is especially challenging in the context of a not-for-pro t organization with a diverse membership. The initial meeting outlined numerous objectives for the organization. Then the TAG membership was asked what they believed to be the most important goals for the group. Under Zurendas direction, the participating members honed the goals and established objectives. Our plan includes 17 Strategic Objectives with goals that will serve to accomplish TAGs mission to enrich the cultural and artistic life of Northwest Florida and the surrounding areas through educational programs and opportunities in the visual, performing, and literary arts. Several committees have been formed to focus on the areas of growing membership, searching for a TAG home, expanding art sales opportunities, as well as advertising/marketing and fundraising, stated Zurenda. TAG is not an organization just for 2 and 3 dimensional artists, Zurenda said. Our goal is to reach out to writers, and performing artists as well as art patrons and art lovers and to include them in our programming. In order to enrich the cultural and artistic life of Northwest Florida TAG has a long range goal of nding and supporting a permanent location for the organization to host workshops, seminars, and meetings. The facility could also support a gallery and a small shop featuring the work of local and regional artists. The arts can help fuel the local economy and promote small businesses as well by attracting visitors to our communities, said TAG Founding President Judy Brooten. Arts group plans for future

Pettis said in a news release that he believes in active leadership in the sheriffs of ce. He also wants the sheriffs of ce to provide honest, fair, consistent enforcement of the law, and display professionalism all of the time; not just after a major crime devastates the community or during an election year. Over the last seven years, in his career as a professional law enforcement of cer, Pettis said he has answered thousands of calls and held more than a couple of titles. Hes served as a deputy sheriff, city police of cer, K-9 of cer, a school resource of cer, a correctional of cer, a eld training of cer, and performed many untitled duties along the way. He is dual-certi ed in Corrections and Law Enforcement and has worked in both of these areas within the state of Florida. Along the way, Pettis said he has received countless hours of community-based training and is always on the lookout for more ways of enhancing his skills and establishing professional relationships with others in the national, state, and local law enforcement communities to better serve our county. I grew up here, my family is here, my roots are here. I went to school, church and found my rst job here, then I got lucky enough to marry a girl from close by and we agreed to live here, Pettis said. I love America and I know it is not too late for us to change; to be more realistic about our lives, our government and our future. I like and respect the people of our community. I enjoy talking and listening to people. I still believe in the creed of To Protect and Serve. With everything going on today, sometimes we forget our job as law enforcement of cers is to protect and serve the people; to make them feel safe at work, in their school, raising their children, shopping in our community and going to church in safety. Pettis said he also believes in customer service. Like you, I want to be treated with respect; regardless if I am a Democrat, a Republican, whether I am rich or poor, black or white, I simply want fair and equal treatment.

The city council approved the engineering agreements for both the Community Development Block Grant Water system improvement and the State Revolving Fund Sewer line project on Monday. The city has been in need of replacing and expanding their sewer and water system for quite some time and with the widening of State Road 79 the project has been delayed that much more. Steps are being taken to insure that this project proceeds at a steady pace, said Grant Writer Nolan Baker. The CDBG Water system improvement engineering agreement is allowing Baker to set out the bid for the project and the SRF Sewer line project engineering agreement is to go forward with designing the project. Before the meeting began there was a moment of silence for the recently departed City Council Member Oscar Ward. He will be greatly missed by both the city hall and in the city of Vernon, said Mayor Michelle Cook. He will be missed by all. The council approved allowing a basketball tournament to be held on Aug. 11 at the Vernon City Hall gym. The council also approved of writer Brent Heards request to become an honorary citizen of Vernon, Fla. His request stated that he has many fond memories of Vernon and that his newest book would be entitled Postcards from Vernon.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, August 1, 2012 PETTIS from page A1reasons I chose to run as a No Party Afliate candidate, to take the politics out of the sheriffs department; to bring back a time where anyone, at anytime, could express their concerns and issues knowing there would not be any kind of political pressure or repercussions. Pettis said he has not had the privilege to serve his country in the Armed Forces, but said he is dedicated to supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and knows he owes his freedom to those who have served. Every county has weaknesses in its government, but these are weaknesses we c an turn into strengths.  Un fortunately, we are living in a time where our economy has suffered and so has our county, Pettis said. We see it in every phase of our daily lives. With continual cuts in funding, balancing the administrative and operational budgets with less money has become a huge challenge. One thing I fully understand it is not the Sheriffs money; its our money and Ill tell you right now every dollar I spend will be spent wisely and only after all other options have been reviewed. Pettis said he is committed to Washington County. I want a true open door and open mind policy for every citizen. Ill keep the public informed on the actions of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and be held accountable for my actions as well as the actions of my deputies, Pettis said. Looking forward, my biggest goal is to make every citizens of Washington County proud of their Sheriffs Ofce. Because after all is said and done, its not about making promises, its about producing results. Laura Elizabeth Yates, 2nd Runner-Up was Avery Grace Kirkland and 1st Runner-up Payten Brianne Joyner.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012Once again, it becomes the Prattlers self-assigned duty to report the death of another well known female country music celebrity, Kitty Wells, The Queen of Country Music. A thanks is extended to Robert K. Oermann, a longtime contributor to Music Row in Nashville and a respected music critic, author and historian. The death of Kitty Wells came on July 16. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, best known for her classic It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels, died peacefully at her Nashville home. Death was attributed to complications from a stroke. Johnnie Wright, age 97, who died on Sept. 27 following a lengthy illness, was the husband of Kitty Wells. My Prattle on October 12 combined the death of Wright along with that of country music legend, Wilma Lee Cooper, who passed away just days prior to Johnnie Wright. Since those deaths were reported, it has been the sad responsibility for the Prattler to inform readers in a full article of the passing of Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson. Only last week, mention was made of the death of Andy Grif th. Kitty Wells was born Muriel Ellen Deason in Nashville on Aug. 30, 1919. Her father was a guitarist, her uncle a ddler and her mother a gospel singer. She grew up hearing folk songs in her Nashville living room, learned guitar chords from a neighbor, sang hymns in church and listened to broadcasts of country music on the Grand Ole Opry. She left school at age 15 and went to work at the Washington Manufacturing Company, ironing new shirts for $9 a week. She formed a duo with her cousin, Bessic Choate. As the Deason Sisters, they had their own 15-minute morning radio show on WSIX in 1936. She married Johnny Wright in 1937 when he was 23 and she was 18. They became acquainted through a sister of Johnnys, who lived next door to the Deasons. The two musical neighbors soon began swapping songs. Johnny maintained his musical career, along with singing partner, Jack Anglin, while his wife continued her climb to success in music under her stage name of Kitty Wells. Johnnie dubbed her Kitty Wells from an Opry song done by the Pickard Family titled I Could Marry Kitty Wells. When rst married, the two formed a trio by adding Kittys sister, Louise, to the group and billed themselves as Johnnie Wright and the Harmony Girls. Louise later married Jack Anglin, Johnnies duo partner. Kitty Wells also sang with Johnnie & Jack in the early 1940s. They landed at KWKH and the Lousiana Haryride after World War II, and this is when she began singing again, using her new stage name, Kitty Wells. She also worked as a disc jockey billed as Rag Doll, because she sold quilting supplies on her show Between 1952 and 1966, Wells ruled the country popularity charts with a string of hits that de ned female country music of that era. She introduced Release Me, I Cant Stop Loving You, Makin Believe and It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels. This rst Nashville female country superstar in uenced a generation of stylists, including Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Jan Howard, Norma Jean, Pam Tillis, Connie Smith and Patty Loveless. In 1952, Johnnie and Jacks hit Poison Love, brought them to the Opry cast. Kitty had decided to retire from music when she was persuaded to record an answer song to the Hank Thompson hit The Wild Side of Life. By the fall of 1952, It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels was a sensation. It was considered controversial at the time because it spoke up for wronged women. Kitty Wells followed the blockbuster with a string of hit songs sung from a female point of view: Paying For That Back Street Affair (1953) (Cheatins a sin 1954), Theres Poison in Your Heart (1955) (Searching 1956), Repenting (1957) (Jealousy 1958), Your Wild Lifes Gonna Get You Down (1959) (Heartbreak U. S.A.1961), Will Your Lawyer Talk To God (1962) and more. She sang memorable duets with fellow superstars Red Foley, Roy Acuff and Webb Pierce, as well as her husband. During her career, Kitty Wells placed 81 titles on the county popularity charts and 35 Top 10 hits. She won a Pioneer Award from the Academy of Country Music in 1986. In 1989, she was nominated for a Grammy Award for Honky Tonk Medley, recorded with Loretta Lynn, K.D. Lang and Brenda Lee. She was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 1991.She retired from the road after a performance on New Years Eve, 2000. My thanks to cousin Kathleen Wells, a country music enthusiast, who rst informed me of Kittys death. Cousin Ron Taylor of Red Level, an authority in the country music eld, and Prattle reader Vernon Lewis, a Chipley native now living in Virginia, also emailed me of Kittys passing. Vernon Lewis wrote that he and his Chipley picking buddies had completed a gig on a Dothan radio station in 1952 and had stopped for gasoline when Kitty Wells came on the car radio with her hit record It Wasnt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels. Hester and I saw Kitty Wells with the Johnny and Jack show at Ocean Opry, which may have been her last performance. We were able to wish her happy birthday as the date was only a few days away. She was warm and friendly to us, and we cherish that one visit. The services for Kitty Wells consisted of visitation on Thursday, July 19, from 2-8 p.m. and a funeral on Friday, July 20 at 1 p.m. My personal condolences to her family. See you all next week. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSKitty Wells from her Dust On The Bible Long Play Album cover. Mourning the loss of another country singerPERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Although the of cial back to school date is still a few weeks away, I heard an interesting talk Sunday about children and their development, based on research by the Search Institute. The Rev. Darby Neptune was speaking at Unity of Panama City on the 40 developmental assets for adolescents and how these metrics can predict the success, or lack of success, in youth. I am not a real big believer in, well, anything much less sociological mumbo-jumbo mixed in with a bunch of statistics, but the survey from the Search Institute was interesting in that the assets it surveyed included eight basic topics, broken down into two groups internal assets and external assets. The external assets were identi ed as support, empowerment, boundaries and expectations and constructive use of time. The Internal Assets were commitment to learning, positive Values, social competencies and positive identity. The eight assets are further divided into 20 internal and 20 external subcategories. On one level, the 40 developmental assets represent everyday wisdom about positive experiences and characteristics for young people, states on the website, search-institute. org. For example, under the external assets support heading, students were asked to rate topics such as family support, positive family communication, other adult relationships, caring neighborhood, caring school climate and parent involvement in schooling. Children responded on a survey indicating how much, or how little, of these in uences were in their lives. In addition, Search Institute research has found that these assets are powerful in uences on adolescent behaviorboth protecting young people from many different problem behaviors and promoting positive attitudes and behaviors. This power is evident across all cultural and socioeconomic groups of youth. There is also evidence from other research that assets have the same kind of power for younger children. Nearly 150,000 youth, grades six to 12, from 202 different communities across the U.S. were surveyed in 2003, and it was found that more of the assets that the children said they had in their lives, the less likely they were to engage in high-risk behavior, such as problem alcohol use, violence, illicit drug use or sexual activity. According to the website, the same kind of impact is evident with many other problem behaviors, including tobacco use, depression and attempted suicide, antisocial behavior, school problems, driving and alcohol and gambling. The Rev. Darby said she was living in Winter Park, Fla., when she rst heard of the Search Institute research and the communitys dismay when their af uent children barely scored higher than the national average of 18.3 assets. Neptune said 18 was the national average, and Winter Park scored 18.6. The number 18 was important, because, according to the research, students who scored 21 or high were dramatically less likely to get into trouble or drop out of school. Having more assets, according to the report, also mean the chances increased that the young people would have positive attitudes and behaviors. Many of the external assets deal not just with the childrens immediate family, but with their whole community schools, churches, neighbors and adults. Children who nd their community respects them and treats them as valued community members become valued community members. Those who do not feel connected to their communities suffer, and as a result, the community suffers. The Rev. Darbys advice was simple. Treat children with respect, and communicate with them. Typically adults shun children sometimes even their own children but the more engaged and accepted a child is by his community, the more he wants to be a part of the community, not a problem. In the end, it seems, at least according to the Search Institutes research, it really may take a village to raise a child. Whod have thunk it?Study shows it really does take a village RANDAL SEYLEREditor

The guest speaker for the lunch was Jim Appleman, former State Attorney for the 14th Judicial Circuit. Appleman was the state attorney for our area for 16 years. His remarks were nonpolitical as he explained how the judicial system in Florida operates. Following is a summary of Applemans explanation. The judicial process is initiated when a complaint is led, which can be led by either law enforcement personnel or a resident. Once led, law enforcement will investigate and try to determine if there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed and who committed the crime. Once probable cause has been determined, law enforcement will arrest the individual or individuals suspected of a crime. One notable exception to probable cause is in the case of domestic violence. If investigating domestic violence, law enforcement is compelled to remove at least one of the parties to the violence, even if unable to determine probable cause. The reason for this is that if one of the parties is not removed, the domestic violence usually begins anew upon the departure of law enforcement. Removal of at least one party protects both parties. When arrested a suspect is con ned to a jail. His rst appearance before a judge, appropriately called First Appearance, is simply to determine if the suspect is a risk for ight or will show in court when required. To determine this, the judge considers the charges, the defendant, the defendants past history and whether or not the defendant can afford an attorney. Depending upon the circumstances, a suspect may be released, may be released after posting bail or may be ordered held in jail. First Appearance makes no attempt to evaluate the validity of the charges, but simply to assess the risk of ight of the defendant. Only after First Appearance does the state attorneys of ce become involved. The state attorney, or one of his deputies, will meet with law enforcement to evaluate the case. If there appears insuf cient evidence to go forward with a trial, the state attorneys of ce has the discretion to dismiss the charges. If the state attorneys of ce and law enforcement nd there is suf cient reason and evidence to proceed, the state attorney les for information, the formal document that may result in a trial. The defendant is then arraigned and given the information the state has against him or her, and the judge makes a determination (again) as to whether or not the defendant can afford an attorney or should be assigned a public defender (lawyer). Both the State Attorneys Ofce and the Public Defenders Of ce are funded through tax revenue. Once a defense lawyer has been hired or assigned the process of Discovery begins. The state attorneys of ce must turn over to the defense any evidence that they possess concerning the case. The defense lawyer(s) and the state attorney meet to discuss the case to see if it should be resolved without going to trial. In Florida, the victim of the crime is also involved in this process. Depending upon the suspected crime, the evidence, and the defendant, the state attorney and defense may agree to a plea deal which avoids a timely and costly trial. In a plea deal, the defendant agrees to plead guilty in exchange for any one or combination of reduced charges, probation or a reduced sentence. The presiding judge has the nal approval authority over any plea deal. Of note, in Discovery the state must turn over to the defense all information it has pertaining to the case. The defense does not need to give the state all information it possesses, but it must inform the state of all witnesses it intends to call and the state has the right to depose (question) all potential defense witnesses before the trial. As opposed to the federal system, the Florida system seeks to avoid any surprises by either the state or the defense during the trial. In Florida, as in all of the United States, a defendant has a right to a trial by a jury composed of peers; the right to cross examine all witnesses; and the right to not testify against oneself. Appleman informed the club that most cases are resolved through some sort of plea bargain. A small percentage go to trial. This saves the state time and money. It costs Florida about $50 per day in operating costs to keep a person in jail. This does not include the cost of building the jail or prison. The Kiwanis club meets Tuesdays at Patillos restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus at noon. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or call David Solger, membership chairperson, at 850-638-1276.

Special To The NewsTALLAHASSEE In conjunction with the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Governors Commission on Jobs for Floridians with Disabilities released its premier 2012 annual report recently. As we work to make Florida the best place for businesses to create private-sector jobs, we must also be sure that those persons with disabilities who want to work have the opportunity to do so, Gov. Rick Scott said. Having a job adds to any persons dignity and purpose and opens doors to independence, which is especially important for Floridians with disabilities. Gov. Scott created the Commission through Executive Order 11-161 to study and nd ways to address the disparity in employment for persons with disabilities relative to the general population. Charged by the executive order to provide public policy solutions and strategies to the Governor and state policymakers, the Commission provides three primary recommendations to serve as initial steps for advancing job and employment opportunities for Floridians with disabilities: The Commission recommends streamlining information and identifying a single-point of contact for employers so they can easily navigate the disability system and expand their pool of quali ed candidates. The Commission recommends the development of a long-term communications plan for the state to promote awareness among employers in order to address misperceptions of persons with disabilities. The Commission determined persons with disabilities need to be given as many rsthand experiences as possible to participate and compete in the workforce. The Commission recommends state policymakers, business leaders, and community partners promote and utilize internship and work experience opportunities for individuals with disabilities as a key tool to improving perceptions and addressing the employment disparity confronting these individuals. The Commission will continue to hold periodic meetings around the state to seek input from employers in order to better understand how the state can assist businesses in establishing a corporate culture that is enthusiastic about hiring persons with disabilities. The goal is to ful ll Governor Scotts top priority to ensure all Floridians are able to gain employment.Special to the NewsCHIPLEY The Spanish Trail Playhouse presents An Evening of Southern Gospel at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18, The performance will be held at the Historic Chipley High School Theatre, home of the Spanish Trail Playhouse.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, August 1, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection There is a king mackerel tournament coming in August that Im sure many will want to enter. This is not one of those costly lifeor-death tournaments. Ive shed tournaments that offer large sums of money and they can bring out the worst in people. The tournament is hosted by the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association. The 16th annual MBARA Kingfish Tournament will be Aug. 25 in Mexico Beach. The Captains Party is on Friday night Aug. 24. The prize money certainly is enough to warrant the entry fee, but not large enough to stay up late into night trying to gure out a way to cheat. Entry is $150 per boat and you can sh as many anglers as you can safely put on a boat. You can leave from anywhere and dock anywhere, but you must weigh your sh at Mexico Beach Marina from 1-5 p.m. CDT. You can bring your sh to the scales by boat, car, horse or truck. Fishing will begin at 5 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. This is a one-day boat tournament. Prizes for the sh are as follows: King Mackerel, 1. $3,000, 2. $2,000, 3. $1,000; Spanish Mackerel, 1. $500, 2. $300, 3. $200; Wahoo, 1. $1,000, only one sh eligible. Since 1997 the MBARA has raised and spent more than $1 million on more than 200 arti cial reefs off Mexico Beach, Panama City and Port St. Joe. All reefs are public numbers and are posted on the organizations website. You also can see underwater video of these reefs on the website as well. This is an all-volunteer organization. You can preregister online at www.mbara.org or you can preregister at Mexico Beach Marina or at Half Hitch Tackle in Port St. Joe. You can read a detailed explanation of the rules at www.mbra.org and read a question and answer section for your information. If you own a small boat like mine, this is the tournament to enter. You would never have to leave the buoy line to catch either a king or Spanish mackerel. As a matter of fact, a Spanish would be what I would be shing for. Bring the family and have a good time.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netPollinatorsTHE GREAT By STAN KIRKLANDFWCTheres a growing movement in Florida, and the rest of the country, for that matter, to recognize the crucial value of pollinators and the role they play in agriculture and forestry. Pollinators include insects such as bees, beetles, ies, butter ies and moths, and other wildlife species such as birds and bats. Pollinators are absolutely crucial to the things we eat and, in some cases, what we wear, said Arlo Kane, a wildlife biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Pollinators move pollen between owers and this annually accounts for the production of $20 billion worth of vegetables, fruits and nuts. Kane was one of seven speakers at a recent pollinator short course in Marianna. In addition to the FWCs presence, the 150 participants who attended were hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service, National Wild Turkey Federation, University of Florida IFAS, and The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Unfortunately, pollinators, and particularly species of insects, are in decline across the country, according to Kane. There are 4,000 species of bees alone that are native to the United States and most have disappeared or are only a fraction of their original number. A National Academy of Sciences report says the decline in pollinators is due to habitat loss, diseases and widespread pesticide use. To stem the loss of pollinators, theres an emphasis to get gardeners, homeowners and landowners to help by planting wild owers and plants that are good for native bees and other insects. The plants should be native to our area, which means theyll likely require less fertilizer or water than plants from other parts of the country, Kane said. You also need a variety of plants so you have owering plants from the spring into the fall. Suggested areas for planting native wild owers include the borders or edges of farm elds, in between the rows of planted pines; roadsides, and gardens. Kane said native wild owers and the insects they attract are also great habitat and feeding areas for wildlife such as bobwhite quail, wild turkeys, mourning doves and gopher tortoises. Information about Floridas native wild owers is available at local plant nurseries and online at awild owers. org or xerces.org The green anole is no chameleonBy JESSICA BASHAMSpecial to the News/ Green anoles, a type of American lizard, are often called American chameleons because they can change color, but they are not chameleons at all. These anoles are the only native lizard in the southeastern United States that changes color, but it is only from bright green to brown or gray. Usually their change in color is due to stress, but also to temperature and mating. Males extend a bright pink dewlap (a piece of skin that unfolds from its throat) when looking for a mate or when warning other males to back off. Their head-bobs are like pushups and show the female and other males that they are strong. Mating season starts in the beginning of April and continues throughout the summer months. In south Florida, the mating season is a little longer. If you see a green anole bobbing up and down and showing his dewlap, look around: there may be a female nearby. A female lays one or sometimes two eggs every two weeks, usually in dirt or debris at the base of a plant. The green anole is the only native anole in the Southeast and is found from North Carolina west to Texas and throughout Florida. True chameleons, however, live in Africa, Madagascar, Portugal, Spain and parts of Asia. At least two species have been introduced into Florida. They can change to every color of the rainbow because of mood, temperature, habitat, stress, anger and defense. They often blend easily into their surroundings by changing color. Chameleons hold on to branches with their feet and coiled tails. Their long, curled tongues shoot out like arrows to catch prey. Anoles are small, long and slender. Like the chameleon, they have the ability to cling to objects but only because of a sticky pad on the underside of their toes. Their tails are not coiled but long and thin and can break easily. This is so they can escape predators. When caught by the tail, the lizard squirms until its tail breaks and it can escape to freedom. The confused predator is left with only the tail and wondering where its lunch has gone. Lizard tails will grow back a little. Watching green anoles is easy. Around homes, they hang from walls, scurry across sidewalks and driveways and climb shrubs, branches and trees. A little anole visits me daily. He perches on a railing outside my of ce window and bobs his head up and down, showing off his bright pink dewlap. Anoles generally have a territory, so chances are youll see one in the same place, day after day. For more information, you can visit http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich. Special to the NEWS/TIMES ADVERTISERGreen anoles are mistakenly called American chameleons because they change color. However, green anoles only turn shades of green, brown or gray.

What challenges do you think the of ce you are seeking will face in the near future and what would you do to meet those challenges? With the failing US economy, I think Washington Countys revenues will fall short in reaching its goal to adequately provide proper services to its residents. I feel strongly about my number one goal, to attract jobs for this great county. Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls. I am a hard working, honest and moral Christian. If I tell you Ill do something, then you can take it to the bank. I am a fourth-generation Washington Countian.

I was raised right, I lived right and I will do right by Washington County.John PettisCottondale Washington County Sheriff No party af liation What made you decide to run for this of ce? I like and respect the people of our community. I enjoy talking and listening to people. I still believe in the Law Enforcement creed of To Protect and Serve. With everything going on today, sometimes we forget our job as Law Enforcement Of cers is to protect and serve the people; to make them feel safe at work, in their school, raising their children, and going to church in safety. I will give it my all to rekindle the relationship between Law Enforcement and the community. I will give the community a chance to be involved in their Sheriffs Of ce. What qualities and experience do you have which make you quali ed for this of ce? Over the last seven years, in my career as a professional law enforcement of cer, I have answered thousands of calls for service and held more than a couple of titles. I have served as a Deputy Sheriff, City Police Of cer, K-9 Of cer, a School Resource Of cer, a Correctional Of cer, a Field Training Of cer, and performed many untitled duties along the way. I am dual-certi ed in Corrections and Law Enforcement and I have worked in both of these areas within the State of Florida. Along the way I have received countless hours of community based training and I am always on the lookout for more ways of enhancing my skills and establishing professional relationships with others in the national, state, and local law enforcement communities to better serve our county. What other political experience have you had? I have never been involved in any kind of Political Campaign, but I have truly enjoyed the experience I have had during this campaign Are you a veteran? If so, list branch of service. I have not had the privilege to serve my country in the Armed Forces, but I am dedicated to supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and I know I owe my freedom to those who have served. What challenges do you think the of ce you are seeking will face in the near future and what would you do to meet those challenges? Unfortunately, we are living in a time where our economy has suffered and so has our county. We see it in every phase of our daily lives. With continual cuts in funding, balancing the administrative and operational budgets with less money has become a huge challenge. One thing I fully understand, it is not the Sheriffs money; its our money and Ill tell you right now every dollar I spend will be spent wisely and only after all other options have been reviewed. Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls. If ever you need me, I will make the time, Ill be there! I am committed to Washington County.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 There are a number of things around your house that can be deadly to your cats and dogs, some you may know, and some may be surprising. Some are even in your kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Dr. Dorothy Black, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVM), shares some enlightening information about common food items that may be toxic to your pet. According to Dr. Black, the following foods can be particularly dangerous to cats and dogs. These foods may not necessarily cause toxic reactions in every case of ingestion, but its just a good rule of thumb to keep these items off your kitchen counters and under no circumstances feed these foods to your pet, Black said. Grapes and raisins possess an unknown toxic substance that can lead to renal failure by an unknown mechanism. Toxic doses have been reported after ingesting just one to two grapes or raisins. Not all animals suffer kidney failure after grape/raisin ingestion and it appears to be an idiosyncratic reaction. Nevertheless, it is best to avoid this food for your dogs and cats. There is no known antidote, only supportive care and renal dialysis to support kidney recovery. Grapes can be particularly tricky for dogs, because many actually like to eat grapes, so you have to be especially aware, Black said. Our pets are amazing creatures, but they can really get into dangerous situations with human food very quickly. Chocolate is commonly known to be bad for pets. It contains two ingredients known to be toxic to dogs and cats, caffeine and theobromine. Dark chocolate is particularly harmful because it has a higher concentration of toxic metabolites than milk or white chocolate. Clinical signs of distress seen after chocolate ingestion include: anxiety/ anxiousness, hyperactivity, urination, elevated body temperature, seizures, and irregular heart rhythms. There is no antidote, but supportive care is usually successful for recovery. Xylitol is a common sugar substitute now used in many home kitchens. It is associated with a severe decline in blood sugar levels and liver failure if ingested by pets. The exact mechanism of the toxicity is unknown and there is no antidote. Supportive care is typically successful for treatment of hypoglycemia, however, liver failure may still occur and prognosis is guarded. It is important to remember that if you cook or use xylitol in your foods, that those foods should not be fed to pets, Black said. It is still toxic if used in cooking or baking. Onions, garlic, and chives are also toxic to pets. They contain the toxin allicin, which is released upon crushing or chewing the plant. Allicin damages the hemoglobin in red blood cells leading to anemia (such as Heinz body anemia and methemoglobinemia). Cats are especially susceptible to this toxin. There is no antidote, however, supportive care is typically successful. While cats are particularly affected by onions and garlic, dogs are especially susceptible to macadamia nut toxicity. An unknown toxin in the nut leads to difculty walking, high body temperatures, depression, and vomiting within one to two hours after ingestion. While no deaths have been reported to date, supportive care in the hospital is often required. Supportive care, which is the usual treatment for food toxicity, often works to recover pets who ingest these foods, Black said. But these supportive treatments to get pets back on their feet are often very costly for the owner, and difcult for the patient. In cases that require dialysis, pets have a difcult road to recovery. The foods mentioned here should be kept off countertops and out of reach of pets, and under no circumstances fed to dogs and cats. Preventing your pet from ingesting these items is the best way to keep them safe. But if they do ingest these foods, Dr. Black recommends contacting your veterinarian immediately.

Special to ExtraThe Florida Department of Agriculture recognized the Kent family of County Line Road as a Century Pioneer Family Farm on July 20. The designation notes that the family has continually owned either all or part of their farm for at least 100 years. About 200 farms have been put on the list since the program began in 1985. About 14 Jackson County families, including the Kents, are on the list. Its really just to recognize our agriculture heritage and to promote the idea and make people aware theres agriculture in this state, said Susan Reese, deputy external affairs director for the department of agriculture. Air Force Airman Christian J. Gerhart graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas.

Without understanding them, young children memorize their prayers and creeds. As these children grow in understanding, their parents may explain bits and pieces of the prayers if their children are curious and bold enough to ask. But, as a general rule, most children accept whatever their parents tell them, and parents assume wrongly, that because the children have learned their prayers that they also understand them. The prayers are reinforced by regular recitations, at church and at home, but there is often little effort to explain or interpret them. When these children are old enough to be on their own, they will remember their prayers in the same way that they remember nursery rhymes; there will be a strong resonance and perhaps even a feeling of comfort and safety associated with these prayers, but no deep understanding, and no live connection with ones faith. Are we attempting to instill faith in a way that is more appropriate to learning poetry or multiplication tables rather than having a genuine experience of God?BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

Deuteronomy 11:19This Message Courtesy of Page 4 Wednesday, August 1, 2012Rev. James L. SnyderIt was just another day, and I was indulging a carefree moment of complaining about the weather. I cant believe its so hot today, I muttered. I thought I was talking to myself, but obviously, I had an audience. Have you ever said or did something not realizing somebody was watching you? Every time I am in a restaurant eating, I endeavor to remember there is an audience and try my very best not to spill the soup on my lap. Although, I must admit that that kind of lap dance always gets a vigorous round of applause from the audience. Dont ask me how I know. I thought in my own special way of thinking that I was alone only to nd out the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was within earshot of my remarks. I must say she is rather remarkable. Those earshot moments are quite extensive. I will not go as far as to say that she can read my mind, although I think she can, but she seems to know what I am thinking even before I go through the effort and labor of thinking. I do not know why I even spend the energy thinking on my own. Even when I do think up a thought of my own and go so far as to express it I am always challenged. The challenge is to not think that way. The challenger is my wife. Life would be so much easier, not to mention less stressful, if I just would quit thinking my own thoughts. It is when I am thinking my own thoughts that I get into trouble. Life would be so much easier if I allowed someone else to think my thoughts for me. After all, isnt that why men get married? Why women get married still baf es me. Getting back to my moment of complaining: I cant believe, I muttered, its so hot today. To which, my wife said, Dont you know its summer? And dont you know that its supposed to be hot during the summer? I did know that, but it did not make the heat any more bearable. Then she said something that rather confused me. I have been confused before. Confusion is a familiar territory to me. But this confusion was different. If, my wife said rather sternly, you cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen. What the kitchen had to do with it being hot outside is way beyond my pay scale. There was a brief moment when I almost threw caution to the wind and asked my wife what she meant by that comment. Boy, am I glad I didnt. I make it a practice to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible, especially when my wife is present. There is something about a kitchen that makes me rather nervous to the point of dropping her favorite cup and having it break all over the oor. I stay out of the kitchen, heat or no heat. If I remember correctly, my wife said as she stared at me rather intently, a few months ago you were complaining about how cold it was. She was right. It was not but a few months ago, I was complaining that it was so cold outside that I just could not bear it. Youre going to have to make up your mind. That was a serious admonition from her. For her to tell me to make up my mind sends some very contradictory messages to me. After all, she is forever making up my mind for me. She seems to know exactly what I want at the restaurant and before I can get a word in edgewise or otherwise, she has ordered for me. Im not complaining. She knows exactly what I want. Either, she continued, its too hot or its too cold. Now make up your mind. I smiled demurely in her direction and nodded in the af rmative. Not wanting to further the conversation I whispered very gently, Yes, dear. It concluded our tte--tte. Later on in the evening, we were watching television. It was the local news, and the special report of the day had to do with the record heat wave across our country. Its been a long time, the weatherman said, since weve seen temperatures this high. Boy, is it hot out there. I glanced in her direction as covertly as possible and noticed she was staring at me, just daring me to say something. There is a time to say something, and then sometimes something should not be said at all. I concealed my infectious grin as much as possible knowing that someone was watching me. Under my breath I whispered, I cant believe its so hot today. After all, it is summer and it is supposed to be hot. I just believe that everybody has the right to complain about the weather. I also believe that some people have the right not to hear me complain about the weather. It is a well-noted mark of wisdom to know when to speak and when not to speak. Solomon in the Old Testament had it right when he said, Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding (Proverbs 17:28 KJV).

The nine-member board and of cers of the not-for-pro t 501(c)(3) Florida corporation based in Jackson County have been wrestling with the strategic planning for the organization since January. They completed the task in July and developed goals and objectives for the organization over the next three years. Getting started on such an arduous task takes creative leadership. TAG called upon Paul Smith, Kevin Yoder and Juanice Wengerd of Rivertown Community Church, who volunteered their time in two separate workshops to get the process started. Then Nancy Zurenda, TAG president, took the reins and guided the board and other interested members through the goal setting and planning process. Much of the work was hammered out in the conference room at the Jackson County Public Library and by individual board members. Strategic planning is especially challenging in the context of a not-for-pro t organization with a diverse membership. The initial meeting outlined numerous objectives for the organization. Then the TAG membership was asked what they believed to be the most important goals for the group. Under Zurendas direction, the participating members honed the goals and established objectives. Our plan includes 17 Strategic Objectives with goals that will serve to accomplish TAGs mission to enrich the cultural and artistic life of Northwest Florida and the surrounding areas through educational programs and opportunities in the visual, performing, and literary arts. Several committees have been formed to focus on the areas of growing membership, searching for a TAG home, expanding art sales opportunities, as well as advertising/marketing and fundraising, stated Zurenda. TAG is not an organization just for 2 and 3 dimensional artists, Zurenda said. Our goal is to reach out to writers, and performing artists as well as art patrons and art lovers and to include them in our programming. In order to enrich the cultural and artistic life of Northwest Florida TAG has a long range goal of nding and supporting a permanent location for the organization to host workshops, seminars, and meetings. The facility could also support a gallery and a small shop featuring the work of local and regional artists. The arts can help fuel the local economy and promote small businesses as well by attracting visitors to our communities, said TAG Founding President Judy Brooten.Arts group plans for future
