By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County School Board approved the 22-plus acre site between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road as the future home of Kate M. Smith Elementary School on Monday night. District Maintenance Director Mike Park reviewed the process the Site Selection Committee had gone through in choosing the new location for the school. This has been an ongoing process of about 20 years, Park said, and over the years, some of the names on the committee changed. In October the Department of Education visited the elementary school to determine the need for a new facility. Five days later, DOE issued the nding that there was a critical need for a new elementary school in Chipley, Park said. With that information, the selection committee met in late December and again on Jan. 3 to discuss the choice of school site, which came down to either stay at the current location, or move the school to the 22-plus acre tract of land the district owns that stretches between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road. Not all of the committee members were able to attend the Jan. 3 meeting, so Park polled the committee last week at Superintendent Joe Taylors request, and the committee recommended relocating the elementary school to the new site. With the funding, this is likely to be a two-year or three-year funding cycle, Park said. That was an important consideration, we really dont want to try and have construction going on while we are also having school. School board selects new school site Teachers, employees of year nominees recognized Governor to visit for bridge dedication By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON Vernon residents will return to the polls on March 12 to elect two city council members and a mayor. Mayor Michelle Cook asked the Vernon City Council on Monday night to set the date of March 12 as the date of the citys next general election, in which town residents will vote on the mayors of ce, as well as elect two city council members. Longtime city councilman Byron Biddles seat is up for election this year, and the seat left vacant after the death of councilman Oscar Ward is also up for election. The position of mayor is voted on each year, said City Clerk Dian Hendrix, so Mayor Cook will also be up for re-election. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the city hall on March 12, and the qualifying period for the election will be from Jan. 28 to Jan. 31. The books on the election will close on Feb. 12. The mayor also told the council that the Florida Department of Transportation is planning to hold a dedication ceremony for the completed bridge at 11 a.m. on Feb. 14, and it is expected that Gov. Rick Scott will be in attendance. The DOT is providing tents and everything we need for the dedication, and there may also be entertainment, Cook said. She asked the council to approve a $500 expenditure by the city to provide food for the dedication ceremony. The council voted to set the election date as requested and also approved the $500 expense for the DOT ceremony. Cook reported that the citys recreation committee would hold baseball, T-ball and softball registration from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 21 and that registration would continue until March 1. She also reported that a Dixie League umpire clinic would be held in February in Marianna. City council sets Vernon election date TALLAHASSEE (AP) The chairman of the Senate Gaming Committee says the Florida Legislature will conduct a comprehensive review of all forms of gambling. Sen. Garrett Richter, a Naples Republican, said the objective over the next two years will be to determine how gambling regulations and revenues bene t Floridians before changes are made. Richter said in the past, gambling legislation was passed without knowing the effect it would have. He said the House and Senate will jointly hire a consultant to conduct the review covering all forms of gambling. That includes the state lottery, Indian casinos, cruises to nowhere, Internet cafes, horse and dog racing and jai alai, which already exist in the state. It also will cover potential new forms of gambling such as destination resorts. Lawmakers to review gambling By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON For 50 years, there has been one constant in Vernon High School Athletics: Alvin and Annie Mae Brown. The couple was honored Friday night at halftime during the Vernon varsity boys basketball game with a plaque and a reception, and dozens of friends and family members were there to take part in the festivities at Coach Aaron Todd Gymnasium. In honor of the couple, their two favorite seats were to be reserved and secured forever as part of the ceremony.

The district is trying to get all their ducks in a row so the elementary school is ac cepted into the DOE funding cycle beginning this coming August, Park said. That is why we are mov ing on this, he said. Its not that we are trying to rush any thing through, we are just try ing to get everything ready for August. Taylor said at the Jan. 3 meeting that if the district can get the project adopted by the DOE in August, then funding and construction could pos sibly come as soon as August 2014. Vernon Elementary School parent and PTO member Tara Dockery addressed the board to ask for School Resource Of cers and metal detectors at each campus. She presented a petition with 400 signatures asking the board members to give school security more consideration. We as parents and grand parents are highly concerned with safety in our schools, Dockery said, and we would like to ask our elected school board ofcials to take a close look at the situation. Dockery said the PTO had been in contact with Sher iff Bobby Haddock and she would have more information from the sheriff as to what was needed to fund an ofcer for each campus. As a board, we share your concerns, said school board chairman Terry Ellis. There are many schools across the country looking at this very thing, trying to make sure they are doing all that is possible. The board members also recognized the nominees for Teachers of the Year, Rookie Teachers of the Year and Em ployees of the Year. There will be a reception honoring the districts employ ees of the year from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Ver non High School Cafeteria and Auditorium. The reception will honor this years nominees for the Teacher, Rookie Teacher, and Support Staff from each school/ cost center. Snacks will be served begin ning at 3:30 until 4:15 in the caf eteria. At 4:15, honorees will be recognized in the auditorium, and conclude with announce ment of District winners for each category. BOARD from page A1 From time to time, it is so very important to pause and pay tribute to those who have contrib uted to making the city of Vernon, Vernon area schools and its students what they are today, said Vernon High Principal Brian Riviere. To night is one of those times. Riviere said the ceremony was to pay tribute to, and recognize, a couple that many of you grew up having them as a xture in your lives Many of you may have received a ride to and from Red Head with, that many of you have been team mates with, and also, unfortunately, had to compete against their children and grandchil dren, Riviere said. The Browns are a couple that many Vernon residents have sat next to and cheered on the Yellow Jackets with during the years. For over 50 years, this couple has been here in these stands, cheering for their children, their grandchildren, students and they are here cheer ing with you tonight, Riviere said. They were very deserving of the honor, Washington County School Board member Susan Roberts said on Monday. They have been so ac tive over the years with their kids in the Vernon school, they have been really faithful. BROWNS from page A1 Persons interested in either team reg istration or the Dixie League clinic may contact city hall for more information. In other business, the city council ac cepted the bid of $2,500 from Southern Earth Sciences, Inc. to cap the aban doned monitor well, as required by the state, after Biddle explained that having the well sealed was a requirement of the citys last sewer permit. The council also accepted the low bid of $12,193.25 from Surplus Salvage of Chipley for roof repairs to the city hall building.

(10 a.m.-2 p.m.). As stated previously, time spent in the Vernon Museum, brings about special memories stemming from my high school years at Vernon. While walking across the almost vacant parking lot of old school grounds, my mind went into a whirl as I quickly subtracted 1944 from 2013 and concluded yes, Perry come April 20, it will have been sixty-nine years since your graduation from this institution of higher leaning! As I parked my prized, still almost new, Ford F-150 pick-up truck along with only two other vehicles, my mind went to the hustle and bustle of traf c with the eet of well worn, World War II era school buses, arriving on the school grounds in 1944. Most of the student body from far a way places including Greenhead, the Deadening and Wausau and extending all the way to Caryville, Hinson Cross Roads, Ebro and Shell Landing were, bused in. My bus was the Caryville route and the last two years of school, the driver for that run was Tolbert Porter. Earlier drivers included Bob Shef eld, John Childress, and King Bush. Aside from the two employees in Vernon City Hall, the massive old high school also provides a Satellite Of ce for the Washington County Council on Aging on each Wednesday. This gives additional traf c in and out of the facility as well as hosting lunch for those senior citizen who desire to take advantage of the service. When in the building, I expected to see Orie Dortch Simmons and Ocie Dortch Howell and to get an update report on their sister, Ollie Dortch Brock, who is experiencing some medical issues. The sisters of my good friend, Jimmy Goodson, are also regulars for the Wednesday gathering. One is Judine Goodson Diaz and the other is Joann Goodson Cook. Also Pat Parrish and Chattie B. Wilson Childs (niece of Rev. Price Wilson) are the two ladies in charge of the program. The latter three have recently purchased a copy of the Heritage of Washington County Book. It is available at the Vernon Museum and by calling me at 638-1016. The friendly ladies at the Council on Aging luncheon, with many others not named, always welcome me to their gathering for a short visit and a sales pitch for those who may still desire a Heritage Book. At the last visit, your writer was offered the meal packaged for this event and was my rst opportunity to enjoy a hot lunch. I usually depend on a cold sandwich brought from home. The nutritious meal, at a bargain price, was just what I needed to take me through the day and I may become a regular customer on my assigned day of duty. Aside from the experience of an enjoyable lunch and visit, the Vernon High School graduate did his usual exploring of additional items continuing to ow in to the Historical Museum. The historic picture, which accompanies this weeks column, was my newest nd. The picture brings back many fond re ections of school days in Vernon. I recall that Vernon Caf, as shown in the background, was known as Coatneys Caf in 1944 and was operated by the parents of Franklin, Bernice and Randall (Junior) Coatney. In previous years, it was owned by the Rev. Odom, the father of Edna Odom Kelley Casey, who passed away a few months ago. Her son, Roger Dale Kelley, and I discussed this caf operation only a few days ago, which of course was long before his arrival in the world. Left to right, Ken Whidden, is a 1945 This 1944 group of Vernon High School Juniors and Seniors include Ken Whidden, Russell Miller, Archie L. Cook, Perry E. Wells, Doug Jones, Edna Jean Brock McFatter and Oakley K. Hightower. High school memories When I was a child, my Mama would say to me when I said or did something that was inappropriate, There is a time and a place for all things. These admonitions came pretty frequently. In Ecclesiastes two, the Bible speaks about a time for everything. Verse 7b was probably the verse, which she applied to me most often, a time to be silent and a time to speak. Though Mama isnt here to admonish me now, I often think of her and the Bible admonition, which I try to heed, but of course I often fail. With winter here and spring and summer-like temperatures abounding, we begin to think that its time to plant the garden. But experience tells us that by this time next week winter may have returned with a vengeance, so we know that it isnt time to plant, but a time to uproot. (V.2a) As a child on the farm, this was the time to clean out the fencerows, chop down or dig up sassafras and persimmon trees, which sprouted up in fallow land. It was a time to get rid of cane stubble unless it was going to be allowed to reproduce, pile and burn dry corn and cotton stalks, check fence posts for rotten ones that needed replacement. Now, with modern equipment, not much corn and cotton stalks are burned, but are chopped or disked in and allowed to be used as mulch for next years notill crop. Winter was also a time to burn the woods so that the wire grass which grew abundantly among the long-leaf pine trees could sprout young green shoots that provided grazing for livestock that fed on the open range. Burning also helped to control rattlesnakes or at least sent them into hiding. Verse 3 of Ecclesiastes was also applicable on the farm, a time to kill and a time to heal. Now would have been the time to kill hogs as Ive written about numerous times. While the weather is cold and the ies are fewer was the time to butcher and preserve meat for future use. (The only beef we ever had was from O.K. Williams grocery, the Suwannee Store, the Andrews brothers Jitney Jungle in Bonifay, or perhaps Mel Jenkins store in Caryville.) The time to kill a chicken was anytime one was needed for Sunday dinner of if company was coming any day. Verse 7 says there is a time to rend and a time to mend. Mending was an on-going chore as we lived by the slogan, Use it up; Wear it out, Make it do, or do without. Elbows and knees always wore out on the men and boys work clothes, so good parts of HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Dear Editor, I wrote you back in the fall and asked that you have more sports coverage on local High School teams. And, I was very impressed with the football coverage of Holmes County High School, my high school, and the other area schools; Chipley, Vernon and Graceville. But now it is basketball season and to be honest you local coverage has been zero, none, nada. Youve had a couple of articles on Chris Walker and his desire to play college and pro basketball, but you have covered not one Holmes County High School boys game, in Holmes County High girls game and a couple of Chipley games! Whats up? Im sure if you were to contact the local high schools that they would keep you up to date on the current and former games! Who is leading the district? How many games has the local schools won and lost? Come on now. Tighten up. Thank You, David Hall Walton County Correctional Facility Letters to the EDITOR Dear Editor, My name is Sandra Miller. Ive had four children who attended Bethlehem High School. The Miller family has been here over 100 years. And I can honestly say this is probably the rst time that a Miller has stood up for a principal. Im very disappointed that they removed Zeb mainly because there wasnt a legitimate reason. It was sudden without any warning. I could understand if he did something unethical. With this of course the suspicion is in the air that this was a political favor. Before the elections, my daughter who attends Bethlehem came home from school and said please dont vote for Mr. Dixon, because it was rumored that if he got elected Mr. Brown would be gone. My child should never have to be concerned about political deceitfulness in the beginning. Mr. Brown and I didnt see eye to eye when he was a history teacher. There were quite a few times when I had scheduled conferences with him because of some indifferences. However I gained a new found respect for him when he became principal of Bethlehem because he was not afraid of stepping on anyones toes. If someone wasnt doing their job, he moved them. I have seen this school so abused by the staff and their favors. And the favoritism between faculty and their children, I wanted to move my children to a different school. So This was refreshing to me. Zeb is one of the most thoughtful and involved principals Ive ever seen at that school. When my daughter did a fundraiser for FCCLA they picked my granddaughter who has a rare disability. It was called a Walk For Kaylee. They raised over 13,000.00 in one day. Supporters came and walked ve miles and Zeb participated in the walk and he genuinely cared enough to be there and support our family. It made me love this school for the rst time and I actually had pride in this school and community that my children were being raised in. For so many years I was so bitter with the way this school was run. It only catered to a select few. A school should promote leaders not followers. Zeb had approached my husband and I the night before the shootings in Connecticut and expressed his concerns for the safety of the children at the circle drive in front of the school. He was worried because cars would come in at any given time of the day and sometimes there were children walking for P. E. He was thinking of how to protect them so he thought of installing some gates at the front. And asked if we would be interested in building gates for him. That has never been asked of any principals before him. What a coincidence that it was the day before the horrible incident in Connecticut. I met with him the day before he was removed ,he was so excited as I showed him the drawings of the gates, and also was so worried what happened at the other school and was going to call a meeting with all the teachers and staff and go over plans for protecting his students. This is truly a principle that cares for the welfare of his students and staff. Another reason for the gates was to direct all visitors to have to enter through the of ce and not have access through the school. So with this I will close in saying that I truly believe the move is a totally political move and cannot be based on this mans job performance. But is the small town mentality about who you know. I hate the message that this new superintendent of schools has made. What are you teaching our children when you cant even give a legitimate reason for such an important move that has affected so many lives for your own advancements. The decision to remove Zeb Brown was your rst wrong mistake as our Superintendent of schools. Even in the end he sent me a message to tell me that he has been removed but please do not give up on the gate project, The safety of the students is more important than what happens to me.

Kens mother married a Mr. Stanley from New Hope, bringing Ken, and older brother Allee and a younger sister, Gloria, into Vernon School. Allee was in the 44 class, married Mary Louise Tiller, served in the U. S. Marine Corp and died in a Pascagoula, Mississippi accident in 1964. Ken, a graduate of the 45 class, married Bonnie Ellis and served in the Merchant Marines. He is the father of three sons and a daughter, who attended Chipley Schools. Ken has also passed away. The sister, Gloria, married Allen Cook and both are now deceased. Russell Miller dropped out of school prior to graduation and probably entered the military service. Archie Cook, a member of the 1944 class returned to the area after his U. S. Army service. He spent time in a German Prison of War camp. He died two years ago. The next person is Perry Wells and may be the only one still living from the group. Doug Jones and Edna Jean Brock McFatter are the next two people. Both were members of the 1945 Vernon High School Class. Doug served in the U. S. Army. Doug and his wife, Jean, have both passed away. Edna Jean Brock, sister of Kelley Brock and Estelle Brock Clark, married William T. McFatter, Jr., also a decorated war hero. They had two sons, who had reached adulthood, prior to Jeans untimely passing several years ago. The last person pictured is Oakley Hightower. He and his older brother, Carl Hightower, were members of the class of 1944. Both experienced honorable military service, leaving school prior to graduation, a common occurrence during that era of World War II. Oakley married Lucille Lane and has one son, Scott. He, too, died at an early age just when he was advancing into a promising career in the Florida Department of Education. Maybe further duty in the Chipley and Vernon Historical Museums will probably prompt further efforts for prattle topics. See you all next week. other worn-out clothing were torn apart and used for mending wearable garments. Today, we see people paying high dollar for jeans that are pre-worn or full of holes. Some who cant afford the pre-aged ones use bleach to eat holes in what they have. We would have been mortified to have had to wear jeans or overalls with patches on the knees or seat to school and felt sorry for those who did. Some industrious ladies would take a mans coat suit and cut it down to make themselves a winter coat suit. They would rend the seams of the pants to make the skirt (.No woman ever wore pants unless it was on wash day or hog killing day.) Of course we are all familiar with Dollys song, Coat of Many Colors which tells about her coat that was made from scraps of colored cloth kind of like a patchwork quilt. Quilt making was an ongoing activity for many ladies and they used scraps of leftover fabric from the clothing, which the family wore. Bed covers were essential for houses with little or no heat and with large farm families, making quilts was more than a pass time. In a big family of men and boys, there were often more overall parts than were needed to mend the wearable clothing, and quilts would be sewn from the denim. These were not works of art as many quilters took pride in, but served to keep bodies warm. Another verse in Ecclesiastes says there is a time to keep and a time to throw away. We are in the process of replacing floor coverings. This entails cleaning out two walk-in closets. I asked my cleaning helper, Lawanna to begin the process last week when I wasnt there. She did as I asked her to, but left word with my husband that I needed to throw away some stuff. I am sincerely trying to take her advice. In fact, I have already narrowed three boxes to two. That is progress! Another verse says there is a time to tear down and a time to build. We are tearing out old floors, but I dont have any plans to build more storage for my stuff, as two of my friends have urged me to do. I dont want to be like the foolish man who went out and built bigger barns to store his stuff and then his life was required of him. There is a time to burn, and I intend to do some of that. A later verse in this book says I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. I sincerely believe that the only way to be happy is to do good while we live. Happy New Year. Special to the News Gulf Power Company crews drove long hours, worked in high winds, rain and snow far away from home and their families in 2012. For their efforts, the company has been selected as a winner of the Edison Electric Institute 2012 Emergency Assistance Award. The award recognizes the company for its restoration support in the recovery from the June storm in Virginia and Hurricanes Isaac and Sandy. Assisting other utilities with getting their customers power back on is all about customer value, said Jeff Rogers, Corporate Communications manager. Plus, it keeps our skills honed should a storm affect our customer area. EEI is the association of U.S. shareholder-owned electric companies. The awards were announced at the January association meeting this morning. One unusual aspect of this years award is that another utility nominated Gulf Power. Dominion Virginia Power submitted a Gulf Power nomination after the storm team assisted that utility following the heavy storms in Virginia. Paul Koonce, CEO of Dominion Virginia Power, said he made the nomination in honor of Jackie Green, a Line Tech II for Gulf Power, who died in a vehicle accident while working storm duty. The Gulf Power team demonstrated courage and professionalism in the face of adversity and left a profound impact on the Dominion Virginia Power organization lasting far beyond the end of the successful restoration effort, Koonce wrote in the nomination. Restoration and mutual assistance is about more than poles, wire and cross arms. It is about the extraordinary people who volunteer for restoration efforts and their families, and about helping the people on the other side of the meter regardless of whether they are in Florida, Virginia or points in between. In 2012, Gulf Power storm teams assisted on six different events. The company sent 63 personnel to Virginia; 48 to Mississippi following Hurricane Isaac; and 70 to the Northeast following Hurricane Sandy. That team spent 17 days working in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Most recently, a storm team just returned from six days in Arkansas, following a snowstorm on Christmas Day. It was a busy year for storm teams, Rogers said. Our employees spent a lot of time away from their families to help others. Thats a strong commitment to help communities whether its here in Northwest Florida or wherever help is needed. Gulf Power Company is an investor-owned electric utility with all of its common stock owned by Atlantabased Southern Company. Gulf Power serves more than 430,000 customers in eight counties throughout Northwest Florida. The companys mission is to safely deliver affordable, reliable and environmentally responsible electric service to our customers while working to improve the communities we serve. Gulf Power crews win utility assistance award DEPUTY MATT KERSEY BENEFIT LUNCHEON PHOTO BY SAM ANGERBRANDT The bene t luncheon for Holmes County Sheriffs Deputy Matt Kersey held Jan. 6, at the Circle Grill in Graceville, was a success with a good turnout, and more people showed up at the door than who bought tickets in advance.

We are working on an exciting project to establish deer management units throughout Florida, said Cory Morea, the FWCs Deer Management Program coordinator. We are looking at the Panhandle rst, but we are moving to a new model of deer management in the state in which hunters and other stakeholders will have a greater impact on deer management decisions. DMUs will divide the state into smaller geographic areas where deer population characteristics are similar. The state is divided into four management zones that are used to set hunting season dates based on deer breeding chronology. As proposed, DMUs will be smaller units within zones and allow the FWC to manage deer on a more local level based on the preferences of hunters, farmers and other interested stakeholders. Two DMUs are proposed for Zone D, which encompasses much of the Florida Panhandle region (western portions of Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties and all counties west of them). One unit would cover the area south of Interstate 10 and the other north of Interstate 10. The new DMUs are intended to allow the FWC more exibility with deer management based upon the deer population, habitat conditions and public preference within each of the units. We surveyed hunters, farmers and other members of the general public to determine attitudes and opinions regarding deer management, and we will be sharing the results of that survey at the public meetings. We will also present information on the DMU model and will be gathering public input on deer management preferences, Morea said. For people who cannot attend any of the meetings, there will be other opportunities to learn about this project and provide input. We have information on our website, and we will be accepting comments online, Morea said, noting public input will determine what changes might be made and that no changes is an option. This project is about managing deer based on public preference. Of course, we wouldnt do anything to risk the sustainability of this valuable public resource, but deer densities and other deer management preferences, such as antler regulations, can be better suited to public preferences using the DMU model. A technical assistance group, composed of members of the public, will be established to review all available public comments and make recommendations to the FWC on the two DMUs within Zone D. The public meetings and the TAG will be facilitated by a third-party vendor, Normandeau Associates, which will develop a summary report to the FWC. Up to 25 TAG members will be chosen based upon their expertise, their representation of an important interest group and their willingness to dedicate some time to better deer management in Zone D. Anyone interested will be able to apply for TAG membership at the public meetings or on the FWCs website. More information about the proposed DMUs, the technical assistance group and a meeting agenda is available at MyFWC. com/Hunting. Click on By Species, Deer and then DMUs. Meeting times and locations Jan. 29, 6:30 8:30 p.m. CST at the Jackson County Agricultural Conference Center, 2741 Pennsylvania Ave., Marianna, FL 32448; Jan. 30, 6:30 8:30 p.m. EST at the Burns Building Auditorium, Florida Department of Transportation, 605 Suwannee St., Tallahassee, FL 32399; Jan. 31, 6:30 8:30 p.m. CST at the University of West Florida, Commons Auditorium, 11000 University Parkway, Pensacola, FL 32514.

FWC seeks public input on Panhandle deer management By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission If theres one thing hard-core deer hunters focus on, its when bucks tend to be most visible as they search for does to breed, a time known as the rut. What many hunters might not grasp is does, the female segment of the deer population, play as important a role in the rut as bucks. The rut is really the breeding period when bucks are searching for and breeding with does that have come into estrus or are in heat, as it is more commonly known, said James Kelly, assistant Deer Management Program coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. With bucks, the rut begins with the decreasing photo period or periods of daylight, which triggers certain hormonal changes, including increased testosterone. In turn you see bucks developing hardened antlers, establishing dominance among themselves via behavioral cues or through signposts such as scrapes and rubs. As things progress, they actively begin searching for does to breed. Kelly said during the peak of the rut is when the large majority of does come into estrus. Bucks are able to pick up on behavioral and olfactory cues (or scents) from the does to sense when a doe is in estrus. During this time, bucks, particularly larger, older, dominant bucks that are seldom visible, do the unexpected and are apt to show up anywhere in their search for does to breed. Its also when many of the larger bucks are taken by hunters. It also is when bucks are most responsive to vocalization calls that hunters use, including grunt calls and rattling antlers, which simulate a ght between mature bucks. One of the relatively newest calls on the market for deer hunters is the snort wheeze, a sound that dominant bucks sometimes make during the rut. These are all sounds bucks hear from other deer or themselves when there is competition to breed a doe or for dominance status to breed estrous does in the near future, and thats what makes them effective, Kelly said. Unlike some states whose peak rutting period is within a short time span, thats not the case in Florida. Bucks begin rutting in south Florida in August and the peak rutting dates are later as you move up peninsular Florida, including the panhandle. Kelly said FWC staff have spent considerable time over the past several years collecting and posting updated peak of the rut dates and information on the FWC website, MyFWC. com/Deer Deer hunting active during rut breeding period Hooked on Outdoors Have you ever been on the river and have a fellow pull up in his boat and start shing next to where you were trying to sh? You know he knows better, and if he gets an earful he surely is expecting it. Why do people do this? I think these same people hunt and pull similar stunts in the woods. If you have to hunt on public land and have no other land available I sympathize with you. I hunt Point Washington when I only have a few hours available, but I am fully aware of my surroundings. I consider public land to be very dangerous because you never know who is hunting around you. Unlike private land, where you usually know who is nearby, public land is wide open to anyone whether they are legal or not to be on it. There are some people that I call sound hunters. A sound hunter is a person who shoots at the first sound he hears. You might think Im making this up, but a friend of mine in Alabama was in a caf one morning and was listening to some guys discuss the previous days hunt. One told of hearing what he thought was a deer in some thick bushes and fired into the brush, not having any idea what he was shooting at. He told his cronies that he had searched the area thoroughly but found no blood or deer. How would you have liked to have been the object shaking that bush? Public land is wonderful if it is the only place you have to hunt, but there are some safety measures you must follow if you want to at least feel safe. The law states that on public land, if you have a gun in your hand, you must wear a hunter orange vest. This sounds sort of silly after going out and buying every inch of clothing on your body to match your surroundings, but just do it. They say a deer cant see hunter orange. That might or might not be true, but a hunter can and he can see it from a long distance away. It would not be a bad idea to wear it on private land also, but for goodness sake wear it on public land. Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net

Chipleys Tyrome Sharpe was a little better on Jan. 8. The duo put on a scoring showcase Jan. 8 inside the Jim Redfern Gymnasium with the Tigers eventually surging to a 106-87 victory. Sharpe led all scorers with 51 points and a high mark in his still young career. Dixon scored 42, but the Dolphins were unable to match scoring from other sources aside from the hot hand. Chipleys Trent Forrest added 22 points and Kobe McCrary 15 in guiding the Tigers to a 13-2 mark. Mosleys Josh Turner contributed 17 points with only six in the second half. Sharpe, a sophomore, capped his scoring with a slam on a fast break with less than a minute to play. He was aware of 27 points at halftime when the public address announcer reported it to the crowd to start the third quarter. Sharpe wasnt sure how close he was to 50 until being informed of the feat after the contest. It really didnt feel like I had that much, Sharpe said. I was just focused on the game and wanted to do what I could to help my team win. Sharpe had 40 points at the end of three quarters. However, the Dolphins wouldnt go away and trailed only 72-69. It took a 10-0 run to start the fourth quarter to give Chipley some needed breathing room. Mosley battled back to within 10 points twice, each on a Dixon basket, but Sharpe and Co. added 34 points in the nal frame to leave with a comfortable win. It was anything but comfortable for 24 minutes, as Mosley (3-11) continued its improvement despite not having wins to show for it, coach Chris Martello said. We played with the defending (Class 1A) state champs, Martello said. Things are headed in the right direction, and hopefully we can pick up some wins soon. There was no victory that night, but Dixon did his best to help Mosley topple a talented 1A team. He also was on the short end of a shootout with Holmes Countys Chris Walker earlier in the season. Dixon had 17 points in the rst half and pulled Mosley to within three points, 36-33, midway through the second quarter. Mosley held its nal lead, 28-27, brie y after two Cody Harris free throws early in the second quarter. The Tigers led by as many as eight points in the rst half, but Mosley moved to within 48-44 at halftime. Dixon outdueled Sharpe 16-13 in the third quarter. Sharpe had 11 points in the fourth, seven coming from the free-throw line, to help the Chipley surge. My coaches just told me to keep shooting, Sharpe said. We wanted the W, and if thats what it took to win, then thats what I had to do. Mosley had four players in double gures in the JV game to barely surpass Sharpes output. But it still resulted in a win, as Dalton Jones scored 18, Brien Polter 15, Quinton Fogle 14 and Avante Gardner 11 in an 83-64 Mosley victory.

The Yellow Jackets took two commanding wins from the Ponce de Leon Pirates, with the varsity boys winning 6937 at Coach Aaron Todd Gymnasium. The junior varsity Yellow Jackets bested their Pirate opponents 45-27. The Jackets drew rst blood with a three-pointer by Alex Andres and they never slowed down, nishing the rst period with a 16-9 lead, which was stretched to a 39-15 halftime advantage. Austin Brown was a hard-charging force for the Jackets in the rst half, keeping the Pirates at bay and scoring repeatedly from the paint. Alex Brown led in scoring for the Yellow Jackets with 18 points, and Ty Brunson led the squad in rebounds. By the middle of the third, we didnt use a starter, said coach Ryan Collins.

The Chipley High School Tigers defeated the Holmes County High School Blue Devils 82-70. The Tigers came out with their head in the game and set on proving the Blue Devils had met their match when they came into Tiger territory. At the half, the Tigers lead the Blue Devils 46-28. During the third and fourth quarters, Chris Walker and the Blue Devils came back and fought hard. The Blue Devils put up a good ght despite not having taken the lead at any point in the game. Chipley head coach Joel Orlando weighed in on the game after the action. First and foremost, this victory goes to the fans. This victory was because of the immense support of the student body, staff and community. This was a great community win, Orlando said. Orlando also said they were going to build on this win. These boys practiced hard, played hard and it was a hard-won win, he said. It was a joy to see them win tonight. Coach Orlando pointed out a few of the key players. Kobe McCrary came from the inside, and he was, as usual, a beast, Orlando said. Which isnt unusual coming from the No. 4 player in the country. Im very proud of how Tyrome Sharpe and Trent Forrest handled the pressure they were under tonight. The Junior Varsity Tigers also walked away with a 44-31 win of the Blue Devils.

GIRLS SOCCER SAND HILLS This probably wasnt the way the Mosley girls soccer team expected to celebrate its senior night. Unable to locate a second referee to of ciate the game, Mosley and Bay canceled their non-district soccer matchup at Bucks Field on Thursday night. It was an unfortunate development for two high-caliber teams preparing for their respective district tournaments. This was possibly the last opportunity to play in front of their parents and fans, Mosley coach Marek Betkowski said of his seniors. I strongly believe well be back in Panama City and playing this season. This game has been scheduled for a long time, and the girls deserved to have two refs here. The two teams are the best in the county. Mosley is 131-2 this season, and Bay is 15-2-1. Bay coach William Carter said the cancellation was a missed opportunity for his players.

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 One out of every three adults has high blood pres sure or hyperten sion. As with hu mans, this health problem is seen in cats and dogs. Pri mary hypertension occurs when the blood pressure is higher than normal with no other cause. Secondary hyper tension, however, occurs when the blood pressure is higher than normal as a result from a different disorder. Ordinarily, both a cats and dogs blood pressure should be about 120/70, which is similar to the normal blood pressure of a human. Different from humans, however, animals usually experience secondary hy pertension as a result from another disorder instead of primary hypertension said Dr. Ashley Saunders, assis tant professor at the Texas A&M College of Vet erinary & Biomedi cal Sciences said. People get hy pertension, so they can relate to it, Saunders said. The thing that is differ ent between people and pets, though, is high blood pressure in pets is usually caused by some thing else. High blood pressure can be a sign of kidney disease, diabetes, endocrine dis ease, cancer in the adrenal glands and central nervous system and brain disease. High blood pressure can also cause resinous prob lems such as blindness, seizures and depression. Other signs include faint ing, anxiety and restless ness at night and loss of balance. Hypertension can re sult in blindness, fainting episodes, and can even contribute to kidney dis ease, Saunders said. Blood pressure on a pet is usually taken by shav ing the underside of a paw and placing a cuff halfway down on the leg. Taking blood pressure on a pet is similar to that of a human, an ultrasound machine is used to listen to the pets blood ow while the cuff is inated and then released. The animals blood pres sure should be taken by a veterinarian. The main treatment for hypertension is medication. Hypertension in pets is totally different than peo ple because it is normally caused by another disease and it needs to be medicat ed, Saunders said. Peo ple are used to hearing that they need to change their lifestyle, diet, and activity level when diagnosed with hypertension, but that does not work for petsmedi cation is needed. Since hypertension is also a symptom for under lying problems, Saunders explained that it is impor tant to get the pets blood pressure checked regu larly. Middle aged pets and older, she added, are more susceptible to having dis eases that would cause hypertension. Once the pet is middle aged or older, blood pres sure should be taken regu larly, at least once a year, Saunders said. This helps monitor their blood pres sure and other possible disorders.

Special to Extra Almost 800 people are registered and ready to com pete to see who can bring in the longest and the most Burmese pythons from des ignated public lands in south Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission announced Satur day at the 2013 Python Chal lenge Kickoff in Davie. For competitors, the challenge is to harvest the well-camouaged Burmese python, which can grow to more than 17 feet in the wild in Florida, with the chance of winning prizes of up to $1,500. Registrants are com ing from more than 30 other states. They will have until midnight on Sunday, Feb. 10 to nd these nonvenomous constrictors. For the FWC, the pri mary goals of the Python Challenge are to raise pub lic awareness and increase the agencys knowledge base regarding this invasive species and how to better understand and address impacts on the Everglades ecosystem, including native wildlife. The 2013 Python Chal lenge is an unprecedented effort to focus public inter est, support and direct in volvement to help deal with Burmese pythons, said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright at the kickoff news conference. The FWC is pleased that so many people are joining this earnest ef fort to limit the impact of this invasive species on Floridas diverse native wildlife. Flo ridians and people from all across the United States truly care about the Florida Everglades, and they are clearly eager to help us bet ter understand and solve this problem, Wright added. When they harvest snakes, Python Challenge competitors will be collect ing valuable data that will contribute to the current Burmese python research and management efforts of the FWC and its partners, Wright said. We are grate ful to Python Challenge participants, sponsors and partners for helping make this event happen. The kickoff is the rst of two public awareness events. The Python Chal lenge concludes with an Awareness and Awards Event on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Zoo Miami. There are two separate Python Challenge compe titions: the General Com petition for the public and the Python Permit Holders Competition for people who have permits from the FWC and other agencies to regu larly harvest these snakes. Both groups will be collect ing data. When dropping off a harvested Burmese python, participants must submit data sheets provid ing information such as the snakes size, GPS location and habitat where it was found. Grand prizes of $1,500 for harvesting the most Bur mese pythons will be award ed to winners of both the General Competition and the Python Permit Holders Competition, with an ad ditional $1,000 prize for the longest Burmese python harvested overall. Funding for the prizes is provided by sponsors and through regis tration fees. People can sign up for the Python Challenge at any time during the Jan. 12 to Feb. 10 competition, even on the nal day.

Many partners, including the Uni versity of Florida, The Na ture Conservancy, The Fu ture of Hunting in Florida, the Wildlife Foundation of Florida and Zoo Miami, are providing important support for the Python Challenge. Special to ExtraW A SHING TO N, D.C. The U.S. Department of the Treasury reported on Tuesday, Jan. 8, that 5 mil lion checks continue to be mailed to federal benecia ries each month. With just two months remaining until the March 1 electronic pay ment law goes into effect, the Treasury Department is urging Social Security and other federal benet recipi ents to not delay and switch now to either direct deposit or the Direct Express Debit MasterCard card. Choosing direct deposit or the Direct Express card makes it easier, safer and more convenient for ben eciaries to receive their payments. Switching to an electronic payment is not op tional its the law, said Da vid Lebryk, commissioner of the Treasury Departments Financial Management Service. If you or a loved one still receive paper checks for your benet payments, now is the time to switch. Its free and easy just call 1-800333-1795 or visit www.GoDi rect.org. Currently, approximately 93 percent of Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments are being made electronically. Converting the remaining paper check recipients to electronic payments will save American taxpayers $1 billion over the next 10 years. The Treasury Depart ment published a nal rule in December 2010 to gradu ally phase out paper checks for federal benet payments. Since May 1, 2011, all people newly applying for federal benets, including Social Se curity, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Ofce of Personnel Man agement benets and other non-tax payments, have had to choose direct deposit or the Direct Express card at the time they sign up for their benets. March 1, 2013, is the nal deadline by which all remaining fed eral benet check recipients must receive their money electronically. The Treasury Depart ments Go Direct public edu cation campaign is working with more than 1,800 partner organizations throughout the country to spread the message about the electron ic payment rule and educate federal benet recipients about their options. The campaign has developed and shared a variety of pub lic service announcements, educational videos, check inserts and other materials to explain how electronic payments work and how to make the switch from paper checks. The videos and ma terials are available on the Go Direct campaign website at www.GoDirect.org. The Treasury De partment has taken great strides to support and guide check recipients through the change to electronic pay ments, and were increasing our efforts signicantly in the nal two months before the deadline, Lebryk said. We have a team of friend ly, helpful agents standing by at our call center, and many nancial institutions, caregivers, senior services providers and advocates for people who are homeless or have disabilities have the necessary information and resources to help federal benet recipients make the switch.

Bear Wrongs Patiently th spiritual work of mercy is to bear wrongs patiently. Bearing wrongs patiently does not, how ever, mean being a doormat for others to walk on. It simply means that, regardless of the wrongs which we suffer, we should bear them all patiently. For ex ample, if you have had something stolen from your unlocked car, this virtue requires that you treat this with patience and equanimity, but not that you con tinue to keep your car unlocked. It is more about the attitude that you have concerning the wrong done to you. We might take a lesson from the ancient stoics, who counseled that every event has two handles, as it were, one by which it can be borne and one by which it is unbearable. Remember that everything here is temporary and that liars, thieves, and even murderers really have no power over our immortal souls. Finally, consider the example of Jesus in his last days. Faced with false charges and inhuman torture and suffering, he prayed for his accusers and tormentors. We should show patience by praying for those who wrong us, realizing that they are the ones who have truly been harmed by their misdeeds.

I am not sure if there is a connection between superstitious and suspicious, but if there were, that would explain a lot in my life. I start every year with high hopes of making certain changes in my life. If I had a quarter for every change I wanted to make in my life but didnt, I would have all the change I need. This past week was one of those weeks. I was minding my own business, which for me is a full-time job without bene ts, and no matter what I did, I was either a day late or a dollar short. I had to go across town for a business meeting and as my luck would have it, I hit every red light. I am not sure, but it seemed that there were 1,937 traf c lights in route to my destination. I had a gift card that I cannot remember when I got it, but I thought I would get a nice gift for myself. I selected my gift, went to the cash out counter and was informed that my gift card had expired yesterday. I think I have just too many yesterdays in my life. I would like a card once that would expire tomorrow. I have plenty of them. The bookstore where I do my business was having a special on a book that I really wanted. I got to the store, stood in line for well over an hour and, as my luck would have it, the person in front of me got the last one. Wheres my gun when I need it? I believe if there are 100 people playing a $10 million lottery I would be number 101. I come so close so many times, but you know what they say, an inch missed is like a mile missed. When my wife and I started our marital journey, we did not take a vow of poverty. It just has turned out that way. As soon as we have a little cash ahead, my wife begins to wonder what is going to break in the house. And, as luck would have it, she is usually right. All week long, my week went like this. All week long, I could not catch anything and then, as my luck would have it, I caught a cold. I did not set out at the beginning of the week to catch a cold. I would like to nd out right now who threw that cold at me. Of course, why I caught it in the rst place is to be questioned. I really did not see it coming. Why is it you cannot catch what you want but usually can catch what you do not want? A friend of mine always reminds me along this line that, Thats life. I caught a cold and now I did not know what to do with it. I got up late in the morning, put on my bathrobe and went toward the kitchen wheezing and coughing as I shuf ed down the hallway. When I got to the kitchen the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage looked at me with one of those looks and said rather sternly, Dont you dare give that cold to me. I was sick, but I was not too sick to know a death threat when it came my way. When it comes right down to it, I am really a generous person. I would give you the shirt off my back if you needed it. However, when I have something like a cold, I cannot give it to anyone. Nobody wants it! Believe me, the cold I have to give I would give freely. You turn around, my wife said very sternly, and march yourself right back into bed. Not only did I catch a cold, but also I am now catching the dickens. I must confess that I am an expert at catching the dickens, I have just never gured out what to do with it when I got it. If I was good at catching luck as I am with catching the dickens I would be the luckiest man in the world. If someone knows a pro table market for dickens please contact me soon. Slowly I turned, step by step, I walked down the hallway, it seemed like of thousand miles, I nally threw myself into bed. Thankfully, the bed caught me. And so, as luck would have it, I have caught the cold, caught the dickens from my wife, and now I plan to catch up on some sleep. I am not sure if you starve a cold and feed a fever or if you feed a cold and starve a fever. So in my confusion, I fed myself. Resting on my bed, I thought of one of my favorite Bible verses. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28 KJV). Life is full of ups and downs. Just when you think you are up you nd yourself on the way down. The important thing in life is to have a safety net. For me, Jesus is my safety net and has never let me down. He will always catch me. Rev. James L.

The featured speaker for this revival is Evangelist Tim Collins of Blue Springs, Mo. Called to preach from birth, the Rev. Collins began his preaching ministry at the age of seven in a small rural church near his native home in south Alabama. He continued to minister as a singer and evangelist throughout his childhood and teen years in venues ranging from churches to tents to nursing homes, with audiences ranging from children to senior adults. An accomplished Southern Gospel singer and incurable storyteller, music and humor are hallmarks of Tim Collins services, but never the focus. I love to sing and to make people laugh, Collins says, but my passion is to challenge everyone to respond to the claims of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If I can help someone make a decision to follow Christ, or to follow Him more closely, I have accomplished my calling in life. Pastor Ealum cordially invites everyone to attend.

Mount Olive plans revival Page 4 Wednesday, January 16, 2013 By DEEPTI HAJELA Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) When Dr. Uma Mysorekar looks at the members of the new Congress, the Indian immigrant and practicing Hindu can see that, for the rst time, theres someone who shares her ethnicity and someone who shares her faith. To her surprise, theyre two different people. Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is the rst Hindu elected to Congress. Rep. Ami Bera of California, also a Democrat, is the third Indian-American to serve in the House. Gabbard, however, isnt from India, where Hinduism originated and to which the vast majority of its adherents have ethnic ties. Bera is a Unitarian. His two Indian-American predecessors in Congress, Dalip Singh Saund and Bobby Jindal, also were not practicing Hindus. The late Saund, a California Democrat elected in 1956, was Sikh. Jindal, a Republican elected to the House in 2004 and now Louisianas governor, is Catholic. Gabbards presence in Congress creates an interesting moment for Hindus in the United States, a chance to celebrate a barrier broken but also a topic of discussion as they ponder how closely religion and nationality are entwined, or even should be. Mysorekar is glad to see a practicing Hindu in the countrys halls of political power, no matter her nationality. Gabbard is a Hindu representative, it doesnt matter where she came from, said Mysorekar, president of the Hindu Temple Society of North America, a temple in the New York borough of Queens that is one of the countrys oldest. As a non-Indian Hindu, Gabbard is most de nitely an outlier. According to an analysis issued last month from the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, there are about 1 billion Hindus in the world. Of those, 94 percent are in India, and 99 percent in the larger South Asia region. The analysis, based on data from 2010, the latest available, estimated the population of Hindus in the United States at 1.79 million. Most are of Indian descent. Hinduism encompasses a range of beliefs and practices, and there is no formal conversion practice. That acceptance of plurality in the faith, that Hindus come in many forms, would make it hypocritical for Indian Hindus to look askance at Gabbard for not sharing their ethnicity, said Smita Kothuri, 38, of McLean, Va. How can I hold it against her? Id be untrue to my religion if I held it against her, she said. Other Indian Hindus agreed with the sentiment. I dont think it makes a difference that shes not Indian, said Kinjal Dave, 17, a high school senior in Hillsborough, N.J. I think its the faith that matters. The press secretary for Gabbard, a 31-year-old Iraq war veteran, declined an Associated Press request to interview Gabbard for this story, but sent along a statement Gabbard had made upon being sworn into of ce, for which she used a copy of the Bhagavad Gita, a Hindu religious text. I chose to take the oath of ofce with my personal copy of the Bhagavad Gita because its teachings have inspired me to be a servant-leader, dedicating my life in the service of others and to my country, she said. Gabbard has said she was introduced to Hinduism through her mother, and embraced it fully as a teenager. She also is the rst member of Congress to be born in the U.S. territory of American Samoa. The reception from Indians and Indian media to her electoral victory has been largely positive, although there has been at least one mistaken media report making a reference to Gabbard being Indian-American. (She and her siblings all have Indian rst names.) Having any Hindu representation in Congress breaks barriers in a country that, despite religious freedom being enshrined in the Constitution, has seen its elected of cials overwhelmingly come from Christian backgrounds. It can be an inspiration to other Hindus who are interested in public of ce, that their faith and most voters unfamiliarity with it, wont prove insurmountable. I think it instills con dence to say theres been a Hindu there, said Suhag Shukla, executive director of the Hindu American Foundation in Washington. Its also an opportunity to introduce Hinduism as a faith to people who may have seen it as solely the purview of those who have a connection to India. Dharmasetu Das knows all about that. Born in Massachusetts to a military family, the 55-year-old white man whose original rst name was David has been practicing Hinduism for decades. Now living in San Diego, he performs weddings and other ceremonies as a Hindu pandit, or priest. He was a teenager when he came across some books on the faith, and I felt like this was it, he said. He hasnt come across too many other non-Indian Hindus like himself over the years, and is happy to know he now has a compatriot in such a high-pro le place like Congress. Just opening peoples eyes, he said, its a great thing. Just as my luck would have it Hindus now have a fellow believer in Congress Faith BRIEFS ASSOCIATED PRESS Left: This Jan. 3 le photo shows Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, waiting for a photo with House Speaker John Boehner, of Ohio, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Gabbard is the rst Hindu elected to Congress. Rep.

Come celebrate reading and literacy with us. We will have a readers theater presented by a rst grade class, snacks, drinks, PTO information and an open house to visit classrooms to kick off a second semester of fun and learning.Employee of the Year Recognition VERNON Washington County School District will hold a reception honoring the districts employees of the year from 3:305:30 p.m. Thursday at the Vernon High School Cafeteria and Auditorium. The reception will honor this years nominees for the Teacher, Rookie Teacher, and Support Staff from each school/cost center. Light snacks will be served 3:30-4:15 p.m. in the cafeteria. At 4:15 p.m., honorees will be recognized in the auditorium, and conclude with announcement of District winners for each category.By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County School Board approved the 22-plus acre site between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road as the future home of Kate M. Smith Elementary School on Monday night. District Maintenance Director Mike Park reviewed the process the Site Selection Committee had gone through in choosing the new location for the school. This has been an ongoing process of about 20 years, Park said, and over the years, some of the names on the committee changed. In October the Department of Education visited the elementary school to determine the need for a new facility. Five days later, DOE issued the nding that there was a critical need for a new elementary school in Chipley, Park said. With that information, the selection committee met in late December and again on Jan. 3 to discuss the choice of school site, which came down to either stay at the current location, or move the school to the 22-plus acre tract of land the district owns that stretches between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road. Not all of the committee members were able to attend the Jan. 3 meeting, so Park polled the committee last week at Superintendent Joe Taylors request, and the committee recommended relocating the elementary school to the new site. With the funding, this is likely to be a two-year or three-year funding cycle, Park said. That was an important consideration, we really dont want to try and have construction going on while we are also having school.School board selects new school siteTeachers, employees of year nominees recognizedGovernor to visit for bridge dedicationBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON Vernon residents will return to the polls on March 12 to elect two city council members and a mayor. Mayor Michelle Cook asked the Vernon City Council on Monday night to set the date of March 12 as the date of the citys next general election, in which town residents will vote on the mayors of ce, as well as elect two city council members. Longtime city councilman Byron Biddles seat is up for election this year, and the seat left vacant after the death of councilman Oscar Ward is also up for election. The position of mayor is voted on each year, said City Clerk Dian Hendrix, so Mayor Cook will also be up for re-election. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the city hall on March 12, and the qualifying period for the election will be from Jan. 28 to Jan. 31. The books on the election will close on Feb. 12. The mayor also told the council that the Florida Department of Transportation is planning to hold a dedication ceremony for the completed bridge at 11 a.m. on Feb. 14, and it is expected that Gov. Rick Scott will be in attendance. The DOT is providing tents and everything we need for the dedication, and there may also be entertainment, Cook said. She asked the council to approve a $500 expenditure by the city to provide food for the dedication ceremony. The council voted to set the election date as requested and also approved the $500 expense for the DOT ceremony. Cook reported that the citys recreation committee would hold baseball, T-ball and softball registration from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 21 and that registration would continue until March 1. She also reported that a Dixie League umpire clinic would be held in February in Marianna. City council sets Vernon election date TALLAHASSEE (AP) The chairman of the Senate Gaming Committee says the Florida Legislature will conduct a comprehensive review of all forms of gambling. Sen. Garrett Richter, a Naples Republican, said the objective over the next two years will be to determine how gambling regulations and revenues bene t Floridians before changes are made. Richter said in the past, gambling legislation was passed without knowing the effect it would have. He said the House and Senate will jointly hire a consultant to conduct the review covering all forms of gambling. That includes the state lottery, Indian casinos, cruises to nowhere, Internet cafes, horse and dog racing and jai alai, which already exist in the state. It also will cover potential new forms of gambling such as destination resorts. Lawmakers to review gambling By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON For 50 years, there has been one constant in Vernon High School Athletics: Alvin and Annie Mae Brown. The couple was honored Friday night at halftime during the Vernon varsity boys basketball game with a plaque and a reception, and dozens of friends and family members were there to take part in the festivities at Coach Aaron Todd Gymnasium. In honor of the couple, their two favorite seats were to be reserved and secured forever as part of the ceremony.Browns honored for 50 years of supportTeam players RANDAL SEYLER | The NewsAlvin and Annie Mae Brown were honored Friday during halftime at the Vernon-Ponce de Leon game for their 50 years of support to the Vernon High School athletic program with designated auditorium seats and a plaque.

The district is trying to get all their ducks in a row so the elementary school is accepted into the DOE funding cycle beginning this coming August, Park said. That is why we are moving on this, he said. Its not that we are trying to rush anything through, we are just trying to get everything ready for August. Taylor said at the Jan. 3 meeting that if the district can get the project adopted by the DOE in August, then funding and construction could possibly come as soon as August 2014. Vernon Elementary School parent and PTO member Tara Dockery addressed the board to ask for School Resource Ofcers and metal detectors at each campus. She presented a petition with 400 signatures asking the board members to give school security more consideration. We as parents and grandparents are highly concerned with safety in our schools, Dockery said, and we would like to ask our elected school board ofcials to take a close look at the situation. Dockery said the PTO had been in contact with Sheriff Bobby Haddock and she would have more information from the sheriff as to what was needed to fund an ofcer for each campus. As a board, we share your concerns, said school board chairman Terry Ellis. There are many schools across the country looking at this very thing, trying to make sure they are doing all that is possible. The board members also recognized the nominees for Teachers of the Year, Rookie Teachers of the Year and Employees of the Year. There will be a reception honoring the districts employees of the year from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Vernon High School Cafeteria and Auditorium. The reception will honor this years nominees for the Teacher, Rookie Teacher, and Support Staff from each school/ cost center. Snacks will be served beginning at 3:30 until 4:15 in the cafeteria. At 4:15, honorees will be recognized in the auditorium, and conclude with announcement of District winners for each category. BOARD from page A1From time to time, it is so very important to pause and pay tribute to those who have contributed to making the city of Vernon, Vernon area schools and its students what they are today, said Vernon High Principal Brian Riviere. Tonight is one of those times. Riviere said the ceremony was to pay tribute to, and recognize, a couple that many of you grew up having them as a xture in your lives Many of you may have received a ride to and from Red Head with, that many of you have been team mates with, and also, unfortunately, had to compete against their children and grandchildren, Riviere said. The Browns are a couple that many Vernon residents have sat next to and cheered on the Yellow Jackets with during the years. For over 50 years, this couple has been here in these stands, cheering for their children, their grandchildren, students and they are here cheering with you tonight, Riviere said. They were very deserving of the honor, Washington County School Board member Susan Roberts said on Monday. They have been so active over the years with their kids in the Vernon school, they have been really faithful. BROWNS from page A1Persons interested in either team registration or the Dixie League clinic may contact city hall for more information. In other business, the city council accepted the bid of $2,500 from Southern Earth Sciences, Inc. to cap the abandoned monitor well, as required by the state, after Biddle explained that having the well sealed was a requirement of the citys last sewer permit. The council also accepted the low bid of $12,193.25 from Surplus Salvage of Chipley for roof repairs to the city hall building.

(10 a.m.-2 p.m.). As stated previously, time spent in the Vernon Museum, brings about special memories stemming from my high school years at Vernon. While walking across the almost vacant parking lot of old school grounds, my mind went into a whirl as I quickly subtracted 1944 from 2013 and concluded yes, Perry come April 20, it will have been sixty-nine years since your graduation from this institution of higher leaning! As I parked my prized, still almost new, Ford F-150 pick-up truck along with only two other vehicles, my mind went to the hustle and bustle of traf c with the eet of well worn, World War II era school buses, arriving on the school grounds in 1944. Most of the student body from far a way places including Greenhead, the Deadening and Wausau and extending all the way to Caryville, Hinson Cross Roads, Ebro and Shell Landing were, bused in. My bus was the Caryville route and the last two years of school, the driver for that run was Tolbert Porter. Earlier drivers included Bob Shef eld, John Childress, and King Bush. Aside from the two employees in Vernon City Hall, the massive old high school also provides a Satellite Of ce for the Washington County Council on Aging on each Wednesday. This gives additional traf c in and out of the facility as well as hosting lunch for those senior citizen who desire to take advantage of the service. When in the building, I expected to see Orie Dortch Simmons and Ocie Dortch Howell and to get an update report on their sister, Ollie Dortch Brock, who is experiencing some medical issues. The sisters of my good friend, Jimmy Goodson, are also regulars for the Wednesday gathering. One is Judine Goodson Diaz and the other is Joann Goodson Cook. Also Pat Parrish and Chattie B. Wilson Childs (niece of Rev. Price Wilson) are the two ladies in charge of the program. The latter three have recently purchased a copy of the Heritage of Washington County Book. It is available at the Vernon Museum and by calling me at 638-1016. The friendly ladies at the Council on Aging luncheon, with many others not named, always welcome me to their gathering for a short visit and a sales pitch for those who may still desire a Heritage Book. At the last visit, your writer was offered the meal packaged for this event and was my rst opportunity to enjoy a hot lunch. I usually depend on a cold sandwich brought from home. The nutritious meal, at a bargain price, was just what I needed to take me through the day and I may become a regular customer on my assigned day of duty. Aside from the experience of an enjoyable lunch and visit, the Vernon High School graduate did his usual exploring of additional items continuing to ow in to the Historical Museum. The historic picture, which accompanies this weeks column, was my newest nd. The picture brings back many fond re ections of school days in Vernon. I recall that Vernon Caf, as shown in the background, was known as Coatneys Caf in 1944 and was operated by the parents of Franklin, Bernice and Randall (Junior) Coatney. In previous years, it was owned by the Rev. Odom, the father of Edna Odom Kelley Casey, who passed away a few months ago. Her son, Roger Dale Kelley, and I discussed this caf operation only a few days ago, which of course was long before his arrival in the world. Left to right, Ken Whidden, is a 1945 This 1944 group of Vernon High School Juniors and Seniors include Ken Whidden, Russell Miller, Archie L. Cook, Perry E. Wells, Doug Jones, Edna Jean Brock McFatter and Oakley K. Hightower.High school memoriesWhen I was a child, my Mama would say to me when I said or did something that was inappropriate, There is a time and a place for all things. These admonitions came pretty frequently. In Ecclesiastes two, the Bible speaks about a time for everything. Verse 7b was probably the verse, which she applied to me most often, a time to be silent and a time to speak. Though Mama isnt here to admonish me now, I often think of her and the Bible admonition, which I try to heed, but of course I often fail. With winter here and spring and summer-like temperatures abounding, we begin to think that its time to plant the garden. But experience tells us that by this time next week winter may have returned with a vengeance, so we know that it isnt time to plant, but a time to uproot. (V.2a) As a child on the farm, this was the time to clean out the fencerows, chop down or dig up sassafras and persimmon trees, which sprouted up in fallow land. It was a time to get rid of cane stubble unless it was going to be allowed to reproduce, pile and burn dry corn and cotton stalks, check fence posts for rotten ones that needed replacement. Now, with modern equipment, not much corn and cotton stalks are burned, but are chopped or disked in and allowed to be used as mulch for next years notill crop. Winter was also a time to burn the woods so that the wire grass which grew abundantly among the long-leaf pine trees could sprout young green shoots that provided grazing for livestock that fed on the open range. Burning also helped to control rattlesnakes or at least sent them into hiding. Verse 3 of Ecclesiastes was also applicable on the farm, a time to kill and a time to heal. Now would have been the time to kill hogs as Ive written about numerous times. While the weather is cold and the ies are fewer was the time to butcher and preserve meat for future use. (The only beef we ever had was from O.K. Williams grocery, the Suwannee Store, the Andrews brothers Jitney Jungle in Bonifay, or perhaps Mel Jenkins store in Caryville.) The time to kill a chicken was anytime one was needed for Sunday dinner of if company was coming any day. Verse 7 says there is a time to rend and a time to mend. Mending was an on-going chore as we lived by the slogan, Use it up; Wear it out, Make it do, or do without. Elbows and knees always wore out on the men and boys work clothes, so good parts of HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Dear Editor, I wrote you back in the fall and asked that you have more sports coverage on local High School teams. And, I was very impressed with the football coverage of Holmes County High School, my high school, and the other area schools; Chipley, Vernon and Graceville. But now it is basketball season and to be honest you local coverage has been zero, none, nada. Youve had a couple of articles on Chris Walker and his desire to play college and pro basketball, but you have covered not one Holmes County High School boys game, in Holmes County High girls game and a couple of Chipley games! Whats up? Im sure if you were to contact the local high schools that they would keep you up to date on the current and former games! Who is leading the district? How many games has the local schools won and lost? Come on now. Tighten up.Thank You,David Hall Walton County Correctional Facility Letters to the EDITORDear Editor, My name is Sandra Miller. Ive had four children who attended Bethlehem High School. The Miller family has been here over 100 years. And I can honestly say this is probably the rst time that a Miller has stood up for a principal. Im very disappointed that they removed Zeb mainly because there wasnt a legitimate reason. It was sudden without any warning. I could understand if he did something unethical. With this of course the suspicion is in the air that this was a political favor. Before the elections, my daughter who attends Bethlehem came home from school and said please dont vote for Mr. Dixon, because it was rumored that if he got elected Mr. Brown would be gone. My child should never have to be concerned about political deceitfulness in the beginning. Mr. Brown and I didnt see eye to eye when he was a history teacher. There were quite a few times when I had scheduled conferences with him because of some indifferences. However I gained a new found respect for him when he became principal of Bethlehem because he was not afraid of stepping on anyones toes. If someone wasnt doing their job, he moved them. I have seen this school so abused by the staff and their favors. And the favoritism between faculty and their children, I wanted to move my children to a different school. So This was refreshing to me. Zeb is one of the most thoughtful and involved principals Ive ever seen at that school. When my daughter did a fundraiser for FCCLA they picked my granddaughter who has a rare disability. It was called a Walk For Kaylee. They raised over 13,000.00 in one day. Supporters came and walked ve miles and Zeb participated in the walk and he genuinely cared enough to be there and support our family. It made me love this school for the rst time and I actually had pride in this school and community that my children were being raised in. For so many years I was so bitter with the way this school was run. It only catered to a select few. A school should promote leaders not followers. Zeb had approached my husband and I the night before the shootings in Connecticut and expressed his concerns for the safety of the children at the circle drive in front of the school. He was worried because cars would come in at any given time of the day and sometimes there were children walking for P. E. He was thinking of how to protect them so he thought of installing some gates at the front. And asked if we would be interested in building gates for him. That has never been asked of any principals before him. What a coincidence that it was the day before the horrible incident in Connecticut. I met with him the day before he was removed ,he was so excited as I showed him the drawings of the gates, and also was so worried what happened at the other school and was going to call a meeting with all the teachers and staff and go over plans for protecting his students. This is truly a principle that cares for the welfare of his students and staff. Another reason for the gates was to direct all visitors to have to enter through the of ce and not have access through the school. So with this I will close in saying that I truly believe the move is a totally political move and cannot be based on this mans job performance. But is the small town mentality about who you know. I hate the message that this new superintendent of schools has made. What are you teaching our children when you cant even give a legitimate reason for such an important move that has affected so many lives for your own advancements. The decision to remove Zeb Brown was your rst wrong mistake as our Superintendent of schools. Even in the end he sent me a message to tell me that he has been removed but please do not give up on the gate project, The safety of the students is more important than what happens to me.Sandra MillerBonifaySee PERRY A5 See HAPPY A5 HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

Kens mother married a Mr. Stanley from New Hope, bringing Ken, and older brother Allee and a younger sister, Gloria, into Vernon School. Allee was in the 44 class, married Mary Louise Tiller, served in the U. S. Marine Corp and died in a Pascagoula, Mississippi accident in 1964. Ken, a graduate of the 45 class, married Bonnie Ellis and served in the Merchant Marines. He is the father of three sons and a daughter, who attended Chipley Schools. Ken has also passed away. The sister, Gloria, married Allen Cook and both are now deceased. Russell Miller dropped out of school prior to graduation and probably entered the military service. Archie Cook, a member of the 1944 class returned to the area after his U. S. Army service. He spent time in a German Prison of War camp. He died two years ago. The next person is Perry Wells and may be the only one still living from the group. Doug Jones and Edna Jean Brock McFatter are the next two people. Both were members of the 1945 Vernon High School Class. Doug served in the U. S. Army. Doug and his wife, Jean, have both passed away. Edna Jean Brock, sister of Kelley Brock and Estelle Brock Clark, married William T. McFatter, Jr., also a decorated war hero. They had two sons, who had reached adulthood, prior to Jeans untimely passing several years ago. The last person pictured is Oakley Hightower. He and his older brother, Carl Hightower, were members of the class of 1944. Both experienced honorable military service, leaving school prior to graduation, a common occurrence during that era of World War II. Oakley married Lucille Lane and has one son, Scott. He, too, died at an early age just when he was advancing into a promising career in the Florida Department of Education. Maybe further duty in the Chipley and Vernon Historical Museums will probably prompt further efforts for prattle topics. See you all next week. other worn-out clothing were torn apart and used for mending wearable garments. Today, we see people paying high dollar for jeans that are pre-worn or full of holes. Some who cant afford the pre-aged ones use bleach to eat holes in what they have. We would have been mortified to have had to wear jeans or overalls with patches on the knees or seat to school and felt sorry for those who did. Some industrious ladies would take a mans coat suit and cut it down to make themselves a winter coat suit. They would rend the seams of the pants to make the skirt (.No woman ever wore pants unless it was on wash day or hog killing day.) Of course we are all familiar with Dollys song, Coat of Many Colors which tells about her coat that was made from scraps of colored cloth kind of like a patchwork quilt. Quilt making was an ongoing activity for many ladies and they used scraps of leftover fabric from the clothing, which the family wore. Bed covers were essential for houses with little or no heat and with large farm families, making quilts was more than a pass time. In a big family of men and boys, there were often more overall parts than were needed to mend the wearable clothing, and quilts would be sewn from the denim. These were not works of art as many quilters took pride in, but served to keep bodies warm. Another verse in Ecclesiastes says there is a time to keep and a time to throw away. We are in the process of replacing floor coverings. This entails cleaning out two walk-in closets. I asked my cleaning helper, Lawanna to begin the process last week when I wasnt there. She did as I asked her to, but left word with my husband that I needed to throw away some stuff. I am sincerely trying to take her advice. In fact, I have already narrowed three boxes to two. That is progress! Another verse says there is a time to tear down and a time to build. We are tearing out old floors, but I dont have any plans to build more storage for my stuff, as two of my friends have urged me to do. I dont want to be like the foolish man who went out and built bigger barns to store his stuff and then his life was required of him. There is a time to burn, and I intend to do some of that. A later verse in this book says I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. I sincerely believe that the only way to be happy is to do good while we live. Happy New Year. Special to the NewsGulf Power Company crews drove long hours, worked in high winds, rain and snow far away from home and their families in 2012. For their efforts, the company has been selected as a winner of the Edison Electric Institute 2012 Emergency Assistance Award. The award recognizes the company for its restoration support in the recovery from the June storm in Virginia and Hurricanes Isaac and Sandy. Assisting other utilities with getting their customers power back on is all about customer value, said Jeff Rogers, Corporate Communications manager. Plus, it keeps our skills honed should a storm affect our customer area. EEI is the association of U.S. shareholder-owned electric companies. The awards were announced at the January association meeting this morning. One unusual aspect of this years award is that another utility nominated Gulf Power. Dominion Virginia Power submitted a Gulf Power nomination after the storm team assisted that utility following the heavy storms in Virginia. Paul Koonce, CEO of Dominion Virginia Power, said he made the nomination in honor of Jackie Green, a Line Tech II for Gulf Power, who died in a vehicle accident while working storm duty. The Gulf Power team demonstrated courage and professionalism in the face of adversity and left a profound impact on the Dominion Virginia Power organization lasting far beyond the end of the successful restoration effort, Koonce wrote in the nomination. Restoration and mutual assistance is about more than poles, wire and cross arms. It is about the extraordinary people who volunteer for restoration efforts and their families, and about helping the people on the other side of the meter regardless of whether they are in Florida, Virginia or points in between. In 2012, Gulf Power storm teams assisted on six different events. The company sent 63 personnel to Virginia; 48 to Mississippi following Hurricane Isaac; and 70 to the Northeast following Hurricane Sandy. That team spent 17 days working in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Most recently, a storm team just returned from six days in Arkansas, following a snowstorm on Christmas Day. It was a busy year for storm teams, Rogers said. Our employees spent a lot of time away from their families to help others. Thats a strong commitment to help communities whether its here in Northwest Florida or wherever help is needed. Gulf Power Company is an investor-owned electric utility with all of its common stock owned by Atlantabased Southern Company. Gulf Power serves more than 430,000 customers in eight counties throughout Northwest Florida. The companys mission is to safely deliver affordable, reliable and environmentally responsible electric service to our customers while working to improve the communities we serve. Gulf Power crews win utility assistance award DEPUTY MATT KERSEY BENEFIT LUNCHEONPHOTO BY SAM ANGERBRANDTThe bene t luncheon for Holmes County Sheriffs Deputy Matt Kersey held Jan. 6, at the Circle Grill in Graceville, was a success with a good turnout, and more people showed up at the door than who bought tickets in advance.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, January 16, 2013 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection DEER DISCUSSIONSBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host a series of public meetings in late January to help shape the future of deer management in the Florida Panhandle. We are working on an exciting project to establish deer management units throughout Florida, said Cory Morea, the FWCs Deer Management Program coordinator. We are looking at the Panhandle rst, but we are moving to a new model of deer management in the state in which hunters and other stakeholders will have a greater impact on deer management decisions. DMUs will divide the state into smaller geographic areas where deer population characteristics are similar. The state is divided into four management zones that are used to set hunting season dates based on deer breeding chronology. As proposed, DMUs will be smaller units within zones and allow the FWC to manage deer on a more local level based on the preferences of hunters, farmers and other interested stakeholders. Two DMUs are proposed for Zone D, which encompasses much of the Florida Panhandle region (western portions of Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla counties and all counties west of them). One unit would cover the area south of Interstate 10 and the other north of Interstate 10. The new DMUs are intended to allow the FWC more exibility with deer management based upon the deer population, habitat conditions and public preference within each of the units. We surveyed hunters, farmers and other members of the general public to determine attitudes and opinions regarding deer management, and we will be sharing the results of that survey at the public meetings. We will also present information on the DMU model and will be gathering public input on deer management preferences, Morea said. For people who cannot attend any of the meetings, there will be other opportunities to learn about this project and provide input. We have information on our website, and we will be accepting comments online, Morea said, noting public input will determine what changes might be made and that no changes is an option. This project is about managing deer based on public preference. Of course, we wouldnt do anything to risk the sustainability of this valuable public resource, but deer densities and other deer management preferences, such as antler regulations, can be better suited to public preferences using the DMU model. A technical assistance group, composed of members of the public, will be established to review all available public comments and make recommendations to the FWC on the two DMUs within Zone D. The public meetings and the TAG will be facilitated by a third-party vendor, Normandeau Associates, which will develop a summary report to the FWC. Up to 25 TAG members will be chosen based upon their expertise, their representation of an important interest group and their willingness to dedicate some time to better deer management in Zone D. Anyone interested will be able to apply for TAG membership at the public meetings or on the FWCs website. More information about the proposed DMUs, the technical assistance group and a meeting agenda is available at MyFWC. com/Hunting. Click on By Species, Deer and then DMUs. Meeting times and locations Jan. 29, 6:30 8:30 p.m. CST at the Jackson County Agricultural Conference Center, 2741 Pennsylvania Ave., Marianna, FL 32448; Jan. 30, 6:30 8:30 p.m. EST at the Burns Building Auditorium, Florida Department of Transportation, 605 Suwannee St., Tallahassee, FL 32399; Jan. 31, 6:30 8:30 p.m. CST at the University of West Florida, Commons Auditorium, 11000 University Parkway, Pensacola, FL 32514. For more information, call Cory Morea at 617-9487.FWC seeks public input on Panhandle deer management By STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission If theres one thing hard-core deer hunters focus on, its when bucks tend to be most visible as they search for does to breed, a time known as the rut. What many hunters might not grasp is does, the female segment of the deer population, play as important a role in the rut as bucks. The rut is really the breeding period when bucks are searching for and breeding with does that have come into estrus or are in heat, as it is more commonly known, said James Kelly, assistant Deer Management Program coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. With bucks, the rut begins with the decreasing photo period or periods of daylight, which triggers certain hormonal changes, including increased testosterone. In turn you see bucks developing hardened antlers, establishing dominance among themselves via behavioral cues or through signposts such as scrapes and rubs. As things progress, they actively begin searching for does to breed. Kelly said during the peak of the rut is when the large majority of does come into estrus. Bucks are able to pick up on behavioral and olfactory cues (or scents) from the does to sense when a doe is in estrus. During this time, bucks, particularly larger, older, dominant bucks that are seldom visible, do the unexpected and are apt to show up anywhere in their search for does to breed. Its also when many of the larger bucks are taken by hunters. It also is when bucks are most responsive to vocalization calls that hunters use, including grunt calls and rattling antlers, which simulate a ght between mature bucks. One of the relatively newest calls on the market for deer hunters is the snort wheeze, a sound that dominant bucks sometimes make during the rut. These are all sounds bucks hear from other deer or themselves when there is competition to breed a doe or for dominance status to breed estrous does in the near future, and thats what makes them effective, Kelly said. Unlike some states whose peak rutting period is within a short time span, thats not the case in Florida. Bucks begin rutting in south Florida in August and the peak rutting dates are later as you move up peninsular Florida, including the panhandle. Kelly said FWC staff have spent considerable time over the past several years collecting and posting updated peak of the rut dates and information on the FWC website, MyFWC. com/Deer.Deer hunting active during rut breeding period Hooked on OutdoorsHave you ever been on the river and have a fellow pull up in his boat and start shing next to where you were trying to sh? You know he knows better, and if he gets an earful he surely is expecting it. Why do people do this? I think these same people hunt and pull similar stunts in the woods. If you have to hunt on public land and have no other land available I sympathize with you. I hunt Point Washington when I only have a few hours available, but I am fully aware of my surroundings. I consider public land to be very dangerous because you never know who is hunting around you. Unlike private land, where you usually know who is nearby, public land is wide open to anyone whether they are legal or not to be on it. There are some people that I call sound hunters. A sound hunter is a person who shoots at the first sound he hears. You might think Im making this up, but a friend of mine in Alabama was in a caf one morning and was listening to some guys discuss the previous days hunt. One told of hearing what he thought was a deer in some thick bushes and fired into the brush, not having any idea what he was shooting at. He told his cronies that he had searched the area thoroughly but found no blood or deer. How would you have liked to have been the object shaking that bush? Public land is wonderful if it is the only place you have to hunt, but there are some safety measures you must follow if you want to at least feel safe. The law states that on public land, if you have a gun in your hand, you must wear a hunter orange vest. This sounds sort of silly after going out and buying every inch of clothing on your body to match your surroundings, but just do it. They say a deer cant see hunter orange. That might or might not be true, but a hunter can and he can see it from a long distance away. It would not be a bad idea to wear it on private land also, but for goodness sake wear it on public land. Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net

Chipleys Tyrome Sharpe was a little better on Jan. 8. The duo put on a scoring showcase Jan. 8 inside the Jim Redfern Gymnasium with the Tigers eventually surging to a 106-87 victory. Sharpe led all scorers with 51 points and a high mark in his still young career. Dixon scored 42, but the Dolphins were unable to match scoring from other sources aside from the hot hand. Chipleys Trent Forrest added 22 points and Kobe McCrary 15 in guiding the Tigers to a 13-2 mark. Mosleys Josh Turner contributed 17 points with only six in the second half. Sharpe, a sophomore, capped his scoring with a slam on a fast break with less than a minute to play. He was aware of 27 points at halftime when the public address announcer reported it to the crowd to start the third quarter. Sharpe wasnt sure how close he was to 50 until being informed of the feat after the contest. It really didnt feel like I had that much, Sharpe said. I was just focused on the game and wanted to do what I could to help my team win. Sharpe had 40 points at the end of three quarters. However, the Dolphins wouldnt go away and trailed only 72-69. It took a 10-0 run to start the fourth quarter to give Chipley some needed breathing room. Mosley battled back to within 10 points twice, each on a Dixon basket, but Sharpe and Co. added 34 points in the nal frame to leave with a comfortable win. It was anything but comfortable for 24 minutes, as Mosley (3-11) continued its improvement despite not having wins to show for it, coach Chris Martello said. We played with the defending (Class 1A) state champs, Martello said. Things are headed in the right direction, and hopefully we can pick up some wins soon. There was no victory that night, but Dixon did his best to help Mosley topple a talented 1A team. He also was on the short end of a shootout with Holmes Countys Chris Walker earlier in the season. Dixon had 17 points in the rst half and pulled Mosley to within three points, 36-33, midway through the second quarter. Mosley held its nal lead, 28-27, brie y after two Cody Harris free throws early in the second quarter. The Tigers led by as many as eight points in the rst half, but Mosley moved to within 48-44 at halftime. Dixon outdueled Sharpe 16-13 in the third quarter. Sharpe had 11 points in the fourth, seven coming from the free-throw line, to help the Chipley surge. My coaches just told me to keep shooting, Sharpe said.

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 One out of every three adults has high blood pressure or hypertension. As with humans, this health problem is seen in cats and dogs. Primary hypertension occurs when the blood pressure is higher than normal with no other cause. Secondary hypertension, however, occurs when the blood pressure is higher than normal as a result from a different disorder. Ordinarily, both a cats and dogs blood pressure should be about 120/70, which is similar to the normal blood pressure of a human. Different from humans, however, animals usually experience secondary hypertension as a result from another disorder instead of primary hypertension said Dr. Ashley Saunders, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences said. People get hypertension, so they can relate to it, Saunders said. The thing that is different between people and pets, though, is high blood pressure in pets is usually caused by something else. High blood pressure can be a sign of kidney disease, diabetes, endocrine disease, cancer in the adrenal glands and central nervous system and brain disease. High blood pressure can also cause resinous problems such as blindness, seizures and depression. Other signs include fainting, anxiety and restlessness at night and loss of balance. Hypertension can result in blindness, fainting episodes, and can even contribute to kidney disease, Saunders said. Blood pressure on a pet is usually taken by shaving the underside of a paw and placing a cuff halfway down on the leg. Taking blood pressure on a pet is similar to that of a human, an ultrasound machine is used to listen to the pets blood ow while the cuff is inated and then released. The animals blood pressure should be taken by a veterinarian. The main treatment for hypertension is medication. Hypertension in pets is totally different than people because it is normally caused by another disease and it needs to be medicated, Saunders said. People are used to hearing that they need to change their lifestyle, diet, and activity level when diagnosed with hypertension, but that does not work for petsmedication is needed. Since hypertension is also a symptom for underlying problems, Saunders explained that it is important to get the pets blood pressure checked regularly. Middle aged pets and older, she added, are more susceptible to having diseases that would cause hypertension. Once the pet is middle aged or older, blood pressure should be taken regularly, at least once a year, Saunders said. This helps monitor their blood pressure and other possible disorders.

Special to ExtraAlmost 800 people are registered and ready to compete to see who can bring in the longest and the most Burmese pythons from designated public lands in south Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced Saturday at the 2013 Python Challenge Kickoff in Davie. For competitors, the challenge is to harvest the well-camouaged Burmese python, which can grow to more than 17 feet in the wild in Florida, with the chance of winning prizes of up to $1,500. Registrants are coming from more than 30 other states. They will have until midnight on Sunday, Feb. 10 to nd these nonvenomous constrictors. For the FWC, the primary goals of the Python Challenge are to raise public awareness and increase the agencys knowledge base regarding this invasive species and how to better understand and address impacts on the Everglades ecosystem, including native wildlife. The 2013 Python Challenge is an unprecedented effort to focus public interest, support and direct involvement to help deal with Burmese pythons, said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright at the kickoff news conference. The FWC is pleased that so many people are joining this earnest effort to limit the impact of this invasive species on Floridas diverse native wildlife. Floridians and people from all across the United States truly care about the Florida Everglades, and they are clearly eager to help us better understand and solve this problem, Wright added. When they harvest snakes, Python Challenge competitors will be collecting valuable data that will contribute to the current Burmese python research and management efforts of the FWC and its partners, Wright said. We are grateful to Python Challenge participants, sponsors and partners for helping make this event happen. The kickoff is the rst of two public awareness events. The Python Challenge concludes with an Awareness and Awards Event on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Zoo Miami. There are two separate Python Challenge competitions: the General Competition for the public and the Python Permit Holders Competition for people who have permits from the FWC and other agencies to regularly harvest these snakes. Both groups will be collecting data. When dropping off a harvested Burmese python, participants must submit data sheets providing information such as the snakes size, GPS location and habitat where it was found. Grand prizes of $1,500 for harvesting the most Burmese pythons will be awarded to winners of both the General Competition and the Python Permit Holders Competition, with an additional $1,000 prize for the longest Burmese python harvested overall. Funding for the prizes is provided by sponsors and through registration fees. People can sign up for the Python Challenge at any time during the Jan. 12 to Feb. 10 competition, even on the nal day. Go to PythonChallenge.org for the required online training, ofcial rules and registration, as well as information on the public events.

Many partners, including the University of Florida, The Nature Conservancy, The Future of Hunting in Florida, the Wildlife Foundation of Florida and Zoo Miami, are providing important support for the Python Challenge.Special to ExtraWa A SHINGto TO N, D.C. The U.S. Department of the Treasury reported on Tuesday, Jan. 8, that 5 million checks continue to be mailed to federal beneciaries each month. With just two months remaining until the March 1 electronic payment law goes into effect, the Treasury Department is urging Social Security and other federal benet recipients to not delay and switch now to either direct deposit or the Direct Express Debit MasterCard card. Choosing direct deposit or the Direct Express card makes it easier, safer and more convenient for beneciaries to receive their payments. Switching to an electronic payment is not optional its the law, said David Lebryk, commissioner of the Treasury Departments Financial Management Service. If you or a loved one still receive paper checks for your benet payments, now is the time to switch. Its free and easy just call 1-800333-1795 or visit www.GoDirect.org. Currently, approximately 93 percent of Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments are being made electronically. Converting the remaining paper check recipients to electronic payments will save American taxpayers $1 billion over the next 10 years. The Treasury Department published a nal rule in December 2010 to gradually phase out paper checks for federal benet payments. Since May 1, 2011, all people newly applying for federal benets, including Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Ofce of Personnel Management benets and other non-tax payments, have had to choose direct deposit or the Direct Express card at the time they sign up for their benets. March 1, 2013, is the nal deadline by which all remaining federal benet check recipients must receive their money electronically. The Treasury Departments Go Direct public education campaign is working with more than 1,800 partner organizations throughout the country to spread the message about the electronic payment rule and educate federal benet recipients about their options. The campaign has developed and shared a variety of public service announcements, educational videos, check inserts and other materials to explain how electronic payments work and how to make the switch from paper checks. The videos and materials are available on the Go Direct campaign website at www.GoDirect.org. The Treasury Department has taken great strides to support and guide check recipients through the change to electronic payments, and were increasing our efforts signicantly in the nal two months before the deadline, Lebryk said. We have a team of friendly, helpful agents standing by at our call center, and many nancial institutions, caregivers, senior services providers and advocates for people who are homeless or have disabilities have the necessary information and resources to help federal benet recipients make the switch. petPET talkTALK PetET Talk ALKFederal electronic payment deadline nears Crossword PuUZZleLESSOLUTIIONN ONN PAGGE B5FWC kicks off 2013 Python ChallengeMatters of the heart: Hypertension

Bearing wrongs patiently does not, however, mean being a doormat for others to walk on. It simply means that, regardless of the wrongs which we suffer, we should bear them all patiently. For example, if you have had something stolen from your unlocked car, this virtue requires that you treat this with patience and equanimity, but not that you continue to keep your car unlocked. It is more about the attitude that you have concerning the wrong done to you. We might take a lesson from the ancient stoics, who counseled that every event has two handles, as it were, one by which it can be borne and one by which it is unbearable. Remember that everything here is temporary and that liars, thieves, and even murderers really have no power over our immortal souls. Finally, consider the example of Jesus in his last days. Faced with false charges and inhuman torture and suffering, he prayed for his accusers and tormentors. We should show patience by praying for those who wrong us, realizing that they are the ones who have truly been harmed by their misdeeds.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy ofFor one is approved if, mindful of God, he endures pain while suffering unjustly.

I am not sure if there is a connection between superstitious and suspicious, but if there were, that would explain a lot in my life. I start every year with high hopes of making certain changes in my life. If I had a quarter for every change I wanted to make in my life but didnt, I would have all the change I need. This past week was one of those weeks. I was minding my own business, which for me is a full-time job without bene ts, and no matter what I did, I was either a day late or a dollar short. I had to go across town for a business meeting and as my luck would have it, I hit every red light. I am not sure, but it seemed that there were 1,937 traf c lights in route to my destination. I had a gift card that I cannot remember when I got it, but I thought I would get a nice gift for myself. I selected my gift, went to the cash out counter and was informed that my gift card had expired yesterday. I think I have just too many yesterdays in my life. I would like a card once that would expire tomorrow. I have plenty of them. The bookstore where I do my business was having a special on a book that I really wanted. I got to the store, stood in line for well over an hour and, as my luck would have it, the person in front of me got the last one. Wheres my gun when I need it? I believe if there are 100 people playing a $10 million lottery I would be number 101. I come so close so many times, but you know what they say, an inch missed is like a mile missed. When my wife and I started our marital journey, we did not take a vow of poverty. It just has turned out that way. As soon as we have a little cash ahead, my wife begins to wonder what is going to break in the house. And, as luck would have it, she is usually right. All week long, my week went like this. All week long, I could not catch anything and then, as my luck would have it, I caught a cold. I did not set out at the beginning of the week to catch a cold. I would like to nd out right now who threw that cold at me. Of course, why I caught it in the rst place is to be questioned. I really did not see it coming. Why is it you cannot catch what you want but usually can catch what you do not want? A friend of mine always reminds me along this line that, Thats life. I caught a cold and now I did not know what to do with it. I got up late in the morning, put on my bathrobe and went toward the kitchen wheezing and coughing as I shuf ed down the hallway. When I got to the kitchen the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage looked at me with one of those looks and said rather sternly, Dont you dare give that cold to me. I was sick, but I was not too sick to know a death threat when it came my way. When it comes right down to it, I am really a generous person. I would give you the shirt off my back if you needed it. However, when I have something like a cold, I cannot give it to anyone. Nobody wants it! Believe me, the cold I have to give I would give freely. You turn around, my wife said very sternly, and march yourself right back into bed. Not only did I catch a cold, but also I am now catching the dickens. I must confess that I am an expert at catching the dickens, I have just never gured out what to do with it when I got it. If I was good at catching luck as I am with catching the dickens I would be the luckiest man in the world. If someone knows a pro table market for dickens please contact me soon. Slowly I turned, step by step, I walked down the hallway, it seemed like of thousand miles, I nally threw myself into bed. Thankfully, the bed caught me. And so, as luck would have it, I have caught the cold, caught the dickens from my wife, and now I plan to catch up on some sleep. I am not sure if you starve a cold and feed a fever or if you feed a cold and starve a fever. So in my confusion, I fed myself. Resting on my bed, I thought of one of my favorite Bible verses. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28 KJV). Life is full of ups and downs. Just when you think you are up you nd yourself on the way down. The important thing in life is to have a safety net. For me, Jesus is my safety net and has never let me down. He will always catch me. Rev. James L.

His web site is www. jamessnyderministries.com. Special to ExtraWESTVILLE Mount Olive Assembly of God in Westville will host a Revival from Jan. 20 to Jan. 23, according to the pastor, the Rev. Thomas Ealum Jr. Revival meetings will begin with the regularly scheduled Sunday services at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20, and will continue Monday through Wednesday with services at 7 p.m. nightly. The featured speaker for this revival is Evangelist Tim Collins of Blue Springs, Mo. Called to preach from birth, the Rev. Collins began his preaching ministry at the age of seven in a small rural church near his native home in south Alabama. He continued to minister as a singer and evangelist throughout his childhood and teen years in venues ranging from churches to tents to nursing homes, with audiences ranging from children to senior adults. An accomplished Southern Gospel singer and incurable storyteller, music and humor are hallmarks of Tim Collins services, but never the focus. I love to sing and to make people laugh, Collins says, but my passion is to challenge everyone to respond to the claims of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If I can help someone make a decision to follow Christ, or to follow Him more closely, I have accomplished my calling in life. Pastor Ealum cordially invites everyone to attend.

To her surprise, theyre two different people. Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is the rst Hindu elected to Congress. Rep. Ami Bera of California, also a Democrat, is the third Indian-American to serve in the House. Gabbard, however, isnt from India, where Hinduism originated and to which the vast majority of its adherents have ethnic ties. Bera is a Unitarian. His two Indian-American predecessors in Congress, Dalip Singh Saund and Bobby Jindal, also were not practicing Hindus. The late Saund, a California Democrat elected in 1956, was Sikh. Jindal, a Republican elected to the House in 2004 and now Louisianas governor, is Catholic. Gabbards presence in Congress creates an interesting moment for Hindus in the United States, a chance to celebrate a barrier broken but also a topic of discussion as they ponder how closely religion and nationality are entwined, or even should be. Mysorekar is glad to see a practicing Hindu in the countrys halls of political power, no matter her nationality. Gabbard is a Hindu representative, it doesnt matter where she came from, said Mysorekar, president of the Hindu Temple Society of North America, a temple in the New York borough of Queens that is one of the countrys oldest. As a non-Indian Hindu, Gabbard is most de nitely an outlier. According to an analysis issued last month from the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, there are about 1 billion Hindus in the world. Of those, 94 percent are in India, and 99 percent in the larger South Asia region. The analysis, based on data from 2010, the latest available, estimated the population of Hindus in the United States at 1.79 million. Most are of Indian descent. Hinduism encompasses a range of beliefs and practices, and there is no formal conversion practice. That acceptance of plurality in the faith, that Hindus come in many forms, would make it hypocritical for Indian Hindus to look askance at Gabbard for not sharing their ethnicity, said Smita Kothuri, 38, of McLean, Va. How can I hold it against her? Id be untrue to my religion if I held it against her, she said. Other Indian Hindus agreed with the sentiment. I dont think it makes a difference that shes not Indian, said Kinjal Dave, 17, a high school senior in Hillsborough, N.J. I think its the faith that matters. The press secretary for Gabbard, a 31-year-old Iraq war veteran, declined an Associated Press request to interview Gabbard for this story, but sent along a statement Gabbard had made upon being sworn into of ce, for which she used a copy of the Bhagavad Gita, a Hindu religious text. I chose to take the oath of ofce with my personal copy of the Bhagavad Gita because its teachings have inspired me to be a servant-leader, dedicating my life in the service of others and to my country, she said. Gabbard has said she was introduced to Hinduism through her mother, and embraced it fully as a teenager. She also is the rst member of Congress to be born in the U.S. territory of American Samoa. The reception from Indians and Indian media to her electoral victory has been largely positive, although there has been at least one mistaken media report making a reference to Gabbard being Indian-American. (She and her siblings all have Indian rst names.) Having any Hindu representation in Congress breaks barriers in a country that, despite religious freedom being enshrined in the Constitution, has seen its elected of cials overwhelmingly come from Christian backgrounds. It can be an inspiration to other Hindus who are interested in public of ce, that their faith and most voters unfamiliarity with it, wont prove insurmountable. I think it instills con dence to say theres been a Hindu there, said Suhag Shukla, executive director of the Hindu American Foundation in Washington. Its also an opportunity to introduce Hinduism as a faith to people who may have seen it as solely the purview of those who have a connection to India. Dharmasetu Das knows all about that. Born in Massachusetts to a military family, the 55-year-old white man whose original rst name was David has been practicing Hinduism for decades. Now living in San Diego, he performs weddings and other ceremonies as a Hindu pandit, or priest. He was a teenager when he came across some books on the faith, and I felt like this was it, he said. He hasnt come across too many other non-Indian Hindus like himself over the years, and is happy to know he now has a compatriot in such a high-pro le place like Congress. Just opening peoples eyes, he said, its a great thing.Just as my luck would have it Hindus now have a fellow believer in Congress Faith BRIEFS ASSOCIATED PRESSLeft: This Jan. 3 le photo shows Rep.
