DOT District 3 Secretary Tommy Bar eld was on hand for the ceremony, which celebrated the culmination of more than three years of construction, during which the antiquated two-lane structure was replaced with two two-lane bridges crossing Holmes Creek. The $21.2 million project began July 20, 2009, and of cially opened to traf c in January. You can tell from the attendance here today what is important to Washington County and to the city of Vernon, Bar eld said. About 300 people turned out for the Thursday morning ceremony, including members of the Vernon Marching Band, Vernon High School Cheerleaders and FFA. The high schools JROTC chapter was on hand to present the ag. The DOTs District 3 stretches from Jefferson County to Pensacola, Bar eld said, so it was nice to be able to do something at home. In addition to the new bridge, FDOT realigned State 277 and County 279, installed a new traf c signal at the State 277 and State 79 intersection and added various pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements. The bridge is part of a Special to The NewsCHIPLEY A big congratulations goes out to the Chipley FFA Show Team for their accomplishment at the Florida State Fair from Feb. 712 in Tampa.

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 bee n an ongoing process of ab out 20 years, Park said, and over the years, some of the names on the commi ttee changed. In October the Department of Education visited t he elementary school to dete rmine the need for a new facility Five days later, DOE issued th e nding that there was a critical need for a new elementary school in Chipley, Park sai d. With that infor mation, 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 commi ttee last week at Superintendent Joe Taylors request, and the committee recommended relocating the elementary school to t he 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.comCity council sets Vernon election date Browns honored for 50 years of supportTeam players NEWS NEWS NEWS Washington County NEWS NEWS Washington County NEWS NEWS NEWS NEWS Washington County NEWS NEWS Washington County NEWS Chipleys Sharpe scores 51 in win over Mosley A7 Volume 89, Number 79 Volume 89, Number 79 School board selects new school site Volume 89, Number 79 School board selects new school site See BOARD A2 Come celebrate reading and literacy with us.

The contractor, Anderson Columbia, did a great job with the project, Barfield said. The contractor not only built the bridge, but also took great care to minimize the effects of the construction on the environment. We found a family of bats living in the old bridge, and that was a factor that had to be mitigated, Barfield said. You cant just say, shoo, bats go find a new home. Protecting the ecosystem of Holmes Creek was a priority with both the DOT and the contractor, he said. Vernon Mayor Michelle Cook opened the ceremony with welcoming remarks, and Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock provided the invocation. Vernon Historical Society President Angia Morris provided some background on the history of Vernon. I want to say thank you to the city of Vernon and its leadership, Barfield said. Without our partnership with the city, this could not be accomplished. Everyone knows that Vernon just got its first stop light, Cook said. It will take us a while to get used to it, but it will really help improve the safety of what was a very dangerous intersection. The original Vernon Bridge, dedicated in 1939, was a popular spot for youngsters wanting to enjoy Holmes Creek, Barfield said. I have memories of the old Vernon Bridge and how children, including him, would jump off of the bridge and into Holmes Creek, he said. Of course, I would never do that now, and we dont want anyone jumping off our new bridge, either. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSCarol Boswell and her heifer, Rosie, compete in the Florida State Fair in Tampa.

CHIPLEY The time of year after football season is often thought of as the off season for the CHS Band. However, the winter months have been equally as busy for the student musicians of the Chipley High School Spirit of the Tiger Band. Several members recently have been recognized for their excellence in musicianship. Florida State University hosted the 32nd annual Tri-State Band Festival in December. Three CHS Band students were selected to participate: seniors Julia Veit and Morgan Locke and junior Richard Wayne Davenport. These students rehearsed over three days and then performed a concert in Tallahassee. The Florida Bandmasters Association All-State Bands were hosted by the city of Tampa in January. CHS was represented again this year by two students in the Florida High School All-State Honors Band, selected from schools from around the state: Cary Laird, a junior ute player, and French horn player Davenport. With the nancial help of the Chipley Band Boosters, these students traveled to Tampa to rehearse and perform with this prestigious group in early January. The FBA District Two Small Schools All-District Bands were selected and performed in late January at Marianna High School. Nineteen CHS Band members auditioned for the bands, and all were accepted, with ve students earning rst chair positions. CHS ninthgraders selected for the Junior High All-District Band were Chloe Bruner, clarinet (rst chair); Jesse Deese, French horn; Mikayla Henderson, trumpet; Allie Sapp, ute; Ethan Schwartz, tuba; and Austin Wyatt, trumpet (rst chair). Senior high members from CHS were Davenport; Cassie Drummond, ute; Malcolm Funderburk, clarinet; Andrew King, trumpet; Laird (rst chair); Locke, French horn; Lindsay Miller, ute; Chelsea McEntyre, trumpet; Katie Register, tenor sax; Nick Spencer, tuba; Denise Spracklen, bass clarinet (rst chair); Mary-Rosalyn Taylor, trumpet; and Veit, alto sax (rst chair); The rst weekend in February, seven CHS students performed as members of the 40th annual Southeastern United States Concert Band Clinic and Honor Bands at Troy University. Seven CHS students were placed by audition in the top two honor bands at the event, including Davenport, Drummond, Andrew King, David King, Miller, Spencer and Spracklen. The students rehearsed over three days in Troy and concluded the weekend with a concert to show off what they had learned from their nationally recognized guest conductors. Feb. 8-9 saw almost 400 students converge on the campus of the Baptist College of Florida in Graceville for the Florida Bandmasters Association District Two Solo and Ensemble Performance Assessment. The CHS Band came away with 14 Superior medals. Several students earned Superiors on difcult music and qualied for the FBA State S&E Assessment in March. Qualifying for state were Laird, ute solo; Miller, ute solo; Drummond, ute solo; and Davenport, French horn solo. Color Guard Captain Spracklen also qualied for state by earning a superior on her ag solo. Veit, who played a Beethoven sonata for piano from memory, earned a Superior with Distinction for her performance. Also earning Superior ratings were Deese, with solos on French Horn and xylophone; Spencer, tuba solo; Emily Smith, B-at clarinet solo; and a snare drum duet performed by freshman percussionists Tyler Adkison and Shelby Savell. The CHS Color Guard earned a Superior on their ag quartet routine, as did ag soloist Cheyenne Rabon.

My friend and faithful reader, Earl Ray Kolmetz, read the J.C. Grif n article of last week, even before I had the opportunity to see it. He gave his approval and told me how much he enjoys all of the writings. At the dedication of the new Vernon Bridge, on Feb. 14, Dorothy Bush White also complimented the article, explaining she did not know Mr. Grif n personally, but did know many of the people mentioned, as she is a native of the Orange Hill area. The Prattler will use the Setting It Straight feature of the newspaper, and report that the long established Grif n Reunion is the rst Saturday in May, not in July as reported last week. Since becoming more involved in history and genealogy in recent years, it has come to my attention that the tourist industry in the state of Florida recognizes both services to be an source of state revenue. Traveling results in spending money for motels, eating in restaurants, visiting state parks and museums and contributes signi cantly to the economics of an area. This was brought home to me on Jan. 3, when a telephone call was received from a man who identi ed himself as James Murphy. He told me he and his wife, Beth, were in Chipley, having traveled from their home in Monroe, La., expressly to do research in the Washington County Historical Museum. I met them at the local facility and spent a full hour or more with them before they proceeded on their journey. They planned to visit the courthouse and ultimately travel to New Hope as they were interested in the Vallombrosa Mansion, written on extensively by historian and journalist E.W. (Judge) Carswell. The owner of that historic property was James Bright, who served as postmaster for the short duration the area had its own post of ce. James Murphy said he is a direct descendant of Mr. Bright and is engaged in researching the life and travels of his ancestors. They saw the writings of E.W. Carswell and learned that he was a graduate of Louisiana Tech in Ruston, which is near their Monroe home. Both Mr. and Mrs. Murphy are graduates of that institution. All the experiences at the historical museum made it easy for them to purchase the book, Washington, Floridas Twelfth County, plus the entire set of the smaller books by Mr. Carswell. Before departing Chipley, the visitors enjoyed a noon meal at the Colonial Restaurant. I had referred them there after they inquired of a restaurant where fresh, home-cooked meals are served. I know they found the eatery because the next visit I made to the caf, the proprietor delivered a gift certificate which the Louisiana visitors had graciously left for Hester and me. I have not heard anything further from the couple but have sent them a Thank You note for the gift, plus an aged geological map of the area where Vallombrosa was located. An excerpt from another writing listed James Bright as postmaster. Also included was a copy of information J.D. (Doris) Owens of Wausau recently discovered, concerning another Washington County native who migrated to Lincoln Parish, La., and was elected sheriff there in 1887. The man was Robert Edwin Russ, who was born in Holmes Valley, Washington County, on Aug. 27, 1830, and died Jan. 9, 1902. His parents were Robert Russ and Sarah Gillam Hodges Russ. He migrated with his mother and stepfather, Sion D. Smith, first to Henry County, Ala., then to Maury County, Tenn., and on to Hinds County, Miss., before finally settling in Jackson Parish (Jonesboro), south of Ruston, La. He married Mary Elizabeth Randle in 1855, and the couple had 13 children. In 1873, Russ purchased land in Lincoln Parish, which was established after the Civil War. With the news that the Vicksburg, Shreveport & Paci c Railroad would be built in the vicinity, Russ was persuaded to donate more than 600 acres of his land for a town to be built around the depot. Russ Town opened in 1883, with lots selling for $375 each. So many people ocked to the new town that a year later, in 1884, it became the site for the Lincoln Parish seat of government. Russ was active in the Democratic Party when he served as sheriff. He was a trustee of Ruston College, which in 1894 became the future Louisiana Tech University. He was a lay organizer of First Baptist Church in downtown Ruston. He is interred at the historic Greenwood Cemetery in Ruston. The outstanding Robert E. Russ Award is given in Ruston to individuals cited for outstanding civic service. Mr. Carswells book, Washington, Floridas Twelfth County, page 91, relates some history of Russs migration to Louisiana. Thanks to Doris Owens for further delving into this story and for referring me to the Wikipedia web page. No inquiry was made as to the expenditures the Murphys made on their travels to Florida from their home in Louisiana, but information gleaned, residents here may be ahead of the game in the knowledge indirectly obtained from their visit, especially regarding Robert Edwin Russ. I hope that they were able to add to the information already con rmed on James Bright. Other researchers on the descendants of James Archibald Yates and Melinda Real Yates, have recently visited our town. One of the offspring of the Yates couple is Nancy Jane Yates Brock, the great grandmother of your writer and the wife of Thomas Jefferson Brock for whom the Brock reunion began in 1906, is still being celebrated on the Saturday before Fathers Day. I expect to write on the ndings of these inquires later. An economic boost to our area could result from additional history seekers coming to our county. See you all next week.

In recent months, the city has abandoned alleyway rights behind the Piggly Wiggly and is in the process of abandoning easements on property under consideration by Dollar General, where the Goodlettsville, Tenn.based retail discounter plans to build a new 12,480-square-foot market. Though the idea might have merit, introducing the idea in the middle of the rst reading of the ordinance to abandon easements on the Dollar General property was poor form. Council member Kevin Russell broached the subject, and former council member Cheryl McCall, who was in the audience, also lauded the idea. The proper way to have introduced the idea of charging for alleyway or right-of-way abandonments would have been to nish with the Dollar General property ordinance, then bring the topic up for discussion. Then the city could research the idea, have the city attorney prepare a resolution or ordinance, and then, in good time, the city could enact the policy. However, broaching the subject in the middle of the Dollar General request made it seem as if the city council were attempting to extort funds from the retail chain. Tom Hodges, the representative for Teramore Development, pointed out that A) he was representing local families who own the land which Dollar General is considering purchasing and B) he had never heard of a city charging for abandoning an easement because the property isnt owned by the city but ownership returns to the property owners once the city relinquishes its claim. Though the city council might have the right to charge for such abandonments in the future, bringing the topic up mid-action was not only unprofessional, it was potentially embarrassing both for the council and for the city. As Mr. Hodges pointed out, the property has not been purchased yet, and there is nothing keeping Dollar General from looking for a more hospitable climate in which to build its new facility. Mr. Hodges also pointed out that the improvements to the property, on which nothing currently stands, would bring an increase in ad valorem taxes to the city. Mayor Linda Cain also noted, not for the rst time, that the move would leave an empty building in the downtown of Chipley. Though it is true there will be an empty building downtown, that is not Dollar Generals concern. As the nations largest small-box discount retailer, Dollar Generals main concern is good business. We make shopping for everyday needs simpler and hassle-free, Dollar General claims on its website. The city council would do well to adopt a simpler and hasslefree philosophy when dealing with businesses or industries willing to spend money in Chipley.Dear Editor, I am sad to see all the young lives being lost today. Since I am a father of eight children and have a seventh grandchild on the way, I feel that I have a big stake in all of this. I think there are areas in society that can be improved on. Parents have to teach their children tolerance and not hate. If there were more tolerance there would be less bullying in school and out. When I was in grade school, if we had a disagreement, we would go way out away from the school and settle our differences. But of course we didnt have hand held communication devices that would could talk behind each others back with either. Im thinking that it might help to take a time out and think about what a person is saying before they respond to a could be hateful comment to be a friend, if people could only practice this along with more tolerance then it might be a happier place to live. Im sure God wouldnt want us to pick and choose who we are going to be nice to. If children are being bullies in school and they tell a parent, maybe the parent can go sit in the childs class and observe whats going on there. I did that once and all I had to do is look at the little boy that was bothering my daughter and he didnt do it anymore. Maybe a little more communication between parents and children and a little more involvement with whats going on in their lives. Also health care people have to be careful what they name some of these new illnesses. Some of the names Ive heard sound like they could cause some problem with children at school being teased. There is so much that needs to be done that it just bewilders me as to what the answer is praying is good but I think there has to be more action taken too.Ronald William BussellPonce De LeonPERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Introduction of idea during reading was in poor form History, genealogy seekers visit county Letter to the EDITOR Our VIEW Ebenezer Baptist Church Cemetery in Holmes Valley, near where Robert Edwin Russ was born.SPECIAL TO THE NEWSSince becoming more involved in history and genealogy in recent years, it has come to my attention that the tourist industry in the state of Florida recognizes both services to be an source of state revenue.

LocalWashington County News | A5Special to the NewsCHIPLEY RMS students in Greta Draayoms eighth grade science classes took part in a simulated event that introduced them to the robotic engineering concept with experiment kits provided by Washington County 4-H. The experiment, 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge, was part of 4-H National Youth Science Day, which seeks to spark an early youth interest in science and future science careers and to reclaim the nations position of leadership in scienti c exploration. Students utilized engineering principles and enhanced their science skills by assembling their own Eco-Bots and surface controls to manage an environmental clean up. They tested the interaction between the Eco-Bots design features and various surface control con gurations to determine the most effective clean-up solution for the simulated spill. Recent research shows that fewer young people are entering adulthood with the skills required to get a middle class or better job. American leaders recognize that if our county continues to take its superiority in science and technology for granted, it risks losing it. Congress commissioned a study to make recommendations as to how our country can address this concern. The study points out the U.S. is falling behind in its future workforce of scientists, engineers and technology experts. China, France and Singapore 50 percent or higher of all undergraduates receive their degrees in science related elds as opposed to only 15 percent in the U.S. This report also pointed out that the US is facing the following obstacles: Low levels of student interest and pro ciencies in science Need for improved science education Need for positive role models in science, engineering, and tech Opportunities for young people to participate in inquiry based learning Outreach to minorities and females to enter science related careers To combat a national shortage of young people pursuing science college majors and occupations and to enhance the nations contribution to the sciences, 4-H National Youth Science Day demonstrates that science; engineering, math and technology are fun and attainable options for college degrees and future careers. By participating in high-quality, positive youth development programs like 4-H NYSD, youth have the opportunity to be engaged in exciting, hands-on scienti c exploration in order to build the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians.About 4-H National Youth Science DayFor more than 100 years, 4-H has been at the forefront of teaching youth about science, engineering and technology. Created to combat a shortage of American young people pursuing science college majors and careers, 4-H National Youth Science Day seeks to spark an early youth interest and leadership in science. Currently, more than ve million young people across the nation participate in 4-H science, engineering and technology programming in topics as varied as robotics, rocketry, wind power, GPS mapping, agricultural science, lm making, water quality and biofuels. And, through the One Million New Scientists, One Million New Ideas campaign, 4-H has undertaken a bold goal of engaging one million additional young people in science, engineering and technology programming by 2013. This years 4-H National Youth Science Day is jointly sponsored Lockheed Martin, Toyota, Donaldson Filtration Solutions, Motorola, Wal-Mart and John Deere. 4-H NYSD is one of the 4-H in the Classroom programs provided by Washington County 4-H. For more information on Washington County 4-H, contact 4-H Youth Development Agent, Julie Pigott Dillard, at 638-6180 or juliepd@u .edu. If you are an adult volunteer interested in beginning a club focused on science/engineering/ technology or hosting a youth workshop, contact Dillard.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Floridas license-free shing days are the perfect venue to try your hand or introduce a friend to some of the nest shing in the world. During its Feb. 13 meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission selected June 1 and Sept. 1 as the 2013 saltwater license-free shing days. On these days, the requirement to have a recreational shing license is waived for Floridas residents and visitors while they are saltwater shing. The FWC offers four license-free shing days a year: two saltwater and two freshwater. Although the Commission selects new saltwater licensefree shing days on an annual basis, freshwater license-free shing days are set to the rst Saturday in April and the second Saturday in June. This years freshwater license-free shing days are April 6 and June 8. Use these days to catch the big one and get rewarded for it. Sign up for an FWC freshwater angler recognition program in advance at www.TrophyCatchFlorida. com to be entered into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. If you catch, photograph and release a largemouth bass heavier than 8 pounds, you will be eligible for great rewards or certi cates for catching qualifying freshwater sh from among 33 exciting species in the program. The FWC will honor license-free freshwater shing days as a legal exemption for sh caught on these dates. To make these events accessible to as many people as possible, the FWC plans these dates around holiday weekends and national events. This years freshwater license-free days are during National Fishing and Boating Week. Highlighted by signi cant national media coverage and public events, this week promotes boating and shing across the country as fun and healthy outdoor activities. In 2012, 37 states had at least one license-free shing day during this annual event. The Sept. 1 saltwater license-free day falls on Labor Day weekend, when many families will be out on the water, enjoying one of the last big shing weekends of summer. The ever-popular bay scallop season is also open to harvest on this date. License-free days not only introduce new anglers to the lifetime sport of shing, they also bene t the state economically as those 3 million anglers cited by the American Sportshing Associations Sport shing in America report, shop at tackle stores, purchase boat fuel and bait and travel to their favorite shing hole. Some of this money even nds its way back to the FWC via the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Sport Fish Restoration Program speci cally to create more shing and boating opportunities. All other regulations such as seasons, size limits and bag limits still apply on these days. Visit MyFWC.com/Fishing to learn more about saltwater and freshwater shing in Florida. GRAY TRIGGERFISH: BALISTES CAPRISCUS Entirely olive-gray Dorsal and anal ns marbled Caudal n lobes elongate in large adults One or more enlarged scales behind gill opening 26 to 29 dorsal n rays 23 to 26 anal n rays Blue spots and short blue lines in dorsal n and on upper half of body, becoming white below anal n Upper rim of eye blue Habitat: Hardbottom, reefs, ledges Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved two changes to how gray trigger sh are managed in Gulf of Mexico state waters in an effort to help rebuild this over shed species. More than 60 percent of gray trigger sh caught in the Gulf of Mexico come from state and federal waters off Florida, which makes the states management of the species integral to the success of the federal rebuilding plan. The changes, approved at the Feb. 13 Commission meeting in Orlando, will make state regulations consistent with pending federal regulations and will include implementing a June 1 through July 31 closed recreational season and a twosh daily recreational bag limit. Federal shery managers also approved changes to the commercial harvest of Gulf gray trigger sh. These changes include a 12sh trip limit and a June 1 through July 31 harvest closure. The FWC requires shers harvesting gray trigger sh commercially in Gulf state waters to have a federal reef sh permit. One condition of the federal reef sh permit is that harvesters must follow federal reef sh rules, even when they are shing in state waters. This means that when the new federal commercial trip limit and closed season take effect sometime in April or May, harvesters in state waters must abide by these rules. Gray trigger sh have a unique spawning behavior that makes them vulnerable during the peak spawning season, usually between June 1 and July 31. Male trigger sh coax females to nesting areas, where they all care for and guard their eggs after spawning. Closing gray trigger sh during their peak spawning time, implementing the twosh-per-day recreational bag limit and the 12sh commercial trip limit should help rebuild the species.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) proposed a 44-day recreational red snapper season for Gulf of Mexico state waters at its meeting Feb. 13 in Orlando. All theyve done is add to the drama, said Destin Capt. Mike Eller. Its just a mess. The season FWC is proposing would start June 1 and end July 14. However, the proposed season is inconsistent with the current proposed federal season, which is slated to be just 27 days. The Commission will make a nal decision on this season at the April Commission meeting in Tallahassee, according to a news release from the FWC. We hope it was a knee jerk reaction and made out of frustration, Eller said. He said, it sounds like they are trying to send a message of disgust as to the way the National Marine Fisheries has handled the red snapper shery. For years, Texas has bucked the system, and has gone non-compliant in state waters for red snapper. However at last weeks Gulf Council Meeting in Mobile, National Marine Fisheries was given the authority to cut days in federal waters for those states that dont mirror the federal dates for red snapper. The system is so broken, Eller said. Charter boats could be the big loser in any ght between the state and feds because captains have to abide by federal laws no matter where they catch the sh, and if red snapper is closed in federal waters, then boats that hold a federal permit cant land one in state waters, even if the state decides to go non-compliance with the federal. If the state decides to go non-compliant with the federal guidelines for red snapper, its just creating an environment for people to break the law, Eller said.FWC adds to drama in red snapper season saga

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com ASectionFrom Staff Reports Chipley 57, Malone 47CHIPLEY The Chipley Lady Tigers took the lead just three minutes into the Class 1A Regional Semi nal game and never looked back, pelting the Malone Lady Tigers 57-47 Feb. 12 at Chipley High School. By the end of the rst quarter, Chipley was ahead 19-11. That margin increased to a 13-point lead in the second period, but the Malone girls whittled that gap down to 9 by halftime. In the third quarter, Chipleys Aaliyah Coleman and Jasmine Belser came out strong, stretching the Lady Tigers edge to 37-26, but the Malone squad came back and closed the gap to 5 points in the nal period. A layup by Belser and a three-pointer by Sorey put Chipley up 50-39 with just over 5 minutes left in the game, and Malone was unable to get closer than 6 the rest of the evening. Belser led four Chipley players in double-digit scoring with 18 points, while Coleman added 15, and Rakeia Sorey and Amanda Paschal each scored 11. For Malone, Curteeona Brelove tallied 16 points to lead, with Angelica Livingston adding 11 and Briana Dallas netting 10.Lady Tigers 63, Lady Blue Devils 49BONIFAY The Chipley Lady Tigers brought home the victory against the Holmes County Lady Blue Devils on Saturday with a 63-49 win, earing the Lady Tigers a trip to the Class 1A Final Four. Chipley, 21-4, was meeting Holmes County for the fourth time this season. The Tigers lost both times during the regular season but edged the Blue Devils by a point to win the district title, and the Region 1-1A championship proved to be no contest. The bitter rivals made frantic efforts to capture and keep the ball, both proving dif cult as the rivals stayed neck and neck, ending the rst period with a score of 6-6. We couldnt put the ball in the basket for nothing tonight, absolutely nothing, Holmes County coach Devon Miles said. But they are good. They improved every single time we played them. The Tigers backcourt of Jasmine Belser, Rakeia Sorey and Amanda Pascal was more than the Blue Devils could handle. They combined for 37 points, Chipley outscoring Holmes County by 12 points in the second quarter to lead 29-17 at halftime. Both sides fought a constant tug of war match for points. This continued until the Lady Tigers found their stride and pounced on the Lady Blue Devils, ending the rst half 29-17. The Lady Tigers didnt lose any of their vigor during halftime as the second half started, ending the third period with a score of 47-28. The Lady Blue Devils made a heated effort to make a comeback, but the Lady Tigers proved too wild to tame as they fought their way to victory, 63-49. Belser led the Tigers with 17 points, and Sorey and Pascal each had 10. Ebony Williams added 13 points to help offset a low-scoring effort from Chipleys 6-foot-2 center Aaliyah Coleman. Selena Long led Holmes County, 19-10, with 10 points. Point guard Mikayla Moore had all nine of her points in the second half, and Hannah Prescott had eight. Holmes County shot 3 of 18 on 3-point attempts. Their guards are really, really good, Miles said of Chipley. And their role players played well for them tonight. Im super excited about our victory, said Chipley coach Heather Hingson. They really came to play tonight. This is a great opportunity for the girls.

The Seahawks turned back defending Class 1A state champion Ponce de Leon 54-44 on Saturday night to win the Region 21A title. Just for this school, this community, I cant explain how much this means, said head coach Kevin Craig, who took over a program in 2004 that had nished 0-25 the year before. Im just so proud to be a Seahawk right now. The outcome avenged a loss to PDL in last years regional nal. South Walton took a 23-6 record into its state semi nal against Villages on Tuesday. Ponce de Leon nished 23-6. Senior Eve Heffron scored a team-high 15 points for South Walton to go along with seven rebounds and seven assists as the Seahawks nished a perfect 14-0 at home. South Walton forced 26 turnovers and held the Pirates to 34 percent shooting. Leading scorer Ashley Harper had 13 points, with just two coming in the second half. Early on, South Walton looked overmatched in every facet of the game as it opened with ve turnovers and 2-for-7 shooting. Meanwhile, Harper scored seven points in the rst ve minutes to put the Pirates ahead 16-7. The Seahawks stormed back. Heffron knocked down three free throws, and Katie Trejo and Casey Perot delivered baskets in the post during a 9-0 run. Perot had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. With the Pirates encountering foul trouble, South Walton built a 34-25 halftime lead. PDL coach Tim Alford said his team slumped when two post players were collared with three fouls by the second quarter. South Walton was 11-15 at the free-throw line in the second quarter alone. It was going our way early, and that took it away from us, Alford said. South Walton led 41-34 after three quarters, but PDL clawed as close as 46-44. We fouled, had a turnover here and there. We were in foul trouble the whole time, Alford said. The Seahawks rebuilt their lead with clutch freethrow shooting. It was a struggle. We had a good chance (in the fourth quarter) but didnt handle ourselves well, Alford said. We just lost our composure. By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE de LEON Not even the rain could dampen spirits as the Ponce de Leon Lady Pirates won the victory against the Port St. Joe Lady Tiger Sharks in the Region 2-1A tournament Feb. 12 with a score of 62-20. There was never a silent or dull moment as the Lady Pirates started and nished aggressively against the Lady Tiger Sharks, with the rst period ending 23-3. The Lady Tiger Sharks took the defensive more toward the middle of the second period, continually taking back the ball, but they found it dif cult to make the needed shots to catch up with the Lady Pirates lead, ending the half 37-10. Breaking through the Lady Tiger Sharks defenses, the Lady Pirates picked up the pace and afforded PSJ very little maneuvering room as the third period ended 54-15. The Lady Pirates kept ring all cannons as they fought their way to victory with a nal score of 62-20. I thought we played very well tonight, said coach Tim Alford. I am very happy with our efforts. Hopefully we can sustain this momentum and the girls continue to have a lot of fun while doing it. The Lady Pirates faced the South Walton Lady Seahawks at 7 p.m. Saturday in South Walton to play for the chance to go to State. Its going to be a close game, said South Walton coach Kevin Craig. Theyve got the best players in 1A on their team, and Coach Alford does a great job. Weve played them before and lost, and were looking forward to playing them again. CECILIA SPEARS | The NewsThe Lady Pirates kept ring all cannons as they fought their way to victory with a nal score of 62-20 against the Port St. Joe Lady Tiger Sharks on Feb. 12. By PAT McCANN747-5068 | @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com LAKELAND Senior forward Ebony Williams scored a career-high 18 points, but if there was one constant for Chipley in its 55-50 Class 1A semi nal win Tuesday over Hilliard it was team. The Tigers, 23-4, advanced to this afternoons state championship game against South Walton with contributions from a number of players. Devan Blair elevated the Tigers with eight rsthalf points when her teammates were struggling. Jasmine Belser overcame an off-day shooting with a rare four-point play. Sophomore point guard Amanda Paschal took over the game for a key stretch in the third quarter when she scored nine of her 13 points and offset center Aaliyah Colemans foul trouble with critical rebounding. But it always came back to team. It was a team win; our bench played strong, said head coach Heather Hingson, who guided Chipley to its rst Final Four victory in girls basketball. We trusted whoever was in there. Hingson credited Blair for jump-starting the Tigers con dence after a lackluster rst quarter when they trailed 8-6. Chipley led only 24-22 at halftime, with Bria Saunders and Kasha Austin combining to score all but one point for Hilliard. That called for a change in strategy. We went to a man to man and left one of our girls guarding two players, Hingson said. We were double-teaming (Saunders) and letting someone else take over for them. They werent able to step up and do it. The Tigers also were able to stay competitive on the boards despite the 6-foot Aaliyah Coleman sitting for long stretches because of early foul trouble. Paschal led them with nine rebounds, Hilliard with just a 39-37 edge for the game. That was amazing; I know we got outrebounded if you look at the stats, but to continue without Aaliyah, Hingson said. Shes just a huge presence for us offensively and defensively in the paint. Chipley controlled bench scoring 22-2 led by Williams effort. She scored 12 points in the second half, with Paschal adding all but two of her 13 after halftime. The Tigers also got two key baskets by Braylee Pooser midway through the fourth quarter that opened a 47-38 lead. The margin expanded to 53-41 on a basket by Williams with 2:23 remaining, and Chipley was able to withstand a Hilliard rally by making 10 of 11 free throws. Saunders, a 5-5 senior guard, paced Hilliard with a game-high 26 points. Austin, a freshman forward, added 14 points and 10 rebounds, but the rest of the Flashes combined for only 10 points.TIGERS EYE TITLE Chipley girls secure 55-50 win in Final FourCHS tops Malone, Holmes to reach nals CATHRINE LAMB | The NewsThe Lady Tigers defeated the Lady Blue Devils on Saturday to secure their spot in the nal four.

By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Students throughout Holmes and Washington Counties will be celebrating National FFA Week this week, Feb. 16-23. National FFA Week gives members a chance to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters host teacher appreciation breakfasts, conduct Ag Olympics competitions, speak to the public about agriculture, volunteer for community service projects and more. The week of George Washingtons birthday was designated as National FFA Week in 1947 at a National FFA Board of Directors meeting. FFA Week always runs from Saturday to Saturday and encompasses Feb. 22, Washingtons birthday. At Chipley High School, FFA sponsor Michele Curts reports a variety of activities are planned. On Tuesday, we are having a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast, and Wednesday is a cookout for the FFA members, Curts said. Thursday is Barn Yard Day at Roulhac Middle School to teach the middle schoolers about agriculture and FFA. We are asking all former FFA members that still have their FFA jackets to display them around the community to promote awareness of National FFA week, Curts said. This is a great FFA program with the focus of continually improving, she said. The community and school support is absolutely wonderful. We have started an alumni chapter of adults whose primary focus is to support the students in the program. We have goals to continue to grow the Chipley FFA chapter and to hopefully start a middle school program at Roulhac in the future, Curts said. I am extremely excited by the students, their dedication, enthusiasm and belief in this FFA chapter and that is the key to our success. Vernon FFA Sponsor Donna Keith said their program also is looking to start an alumni chapter like the one Chipley has in place. They are a very active organization, and we would like to get our parents and alumni involved here in the same way, Keith said. In Holmes County, the Poplar Springs FFA program has been very busy. The Poplar Springs Middle School students won several ribbons at District Forestry and went on to State. District competition was held Oct.11 and the State competition was held Nov.15 and 16. High school student Easton Hinson won third highest out of the district in forestry equipment identi cation. The district is from Chipley to Pensacola, and from Panama to Alabama. At state the middle school won third place out of all of the state of Florida in timber cruising. FFA Advisor Lowell Hudson said, I am very proud of the accomplishments they made in these career development events. On Dec. 13, Poplar Springs students won in three different career development events at the Sub District FFA Competitions held in Chipley. Lacey Shehee won second place in creed speaking. Jake Wangle won rst place in tractor safety/driving. Alexus Williams won second place in extemporaneous public speaking. All of these students did great at the career development events they entered, Hudson said.

FFA membership today is comprised of 557,318 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,498 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, according to the organizations website. FFA operates on local, state and national levels. Student members belong to chapters organized at the local school level. Agriculture educators serve as chapter advisors. Chapters are organized under state associations headed by an advisor and executive secretary, often employees of the state department of education. States conduct programs and host annual conventions. The National FFA Organization is governed by a board of directors, charters state associations and provides direction, program materials and support for local chapters and state FFA associations. FFA was organized nationally in 1928 in Kansas City, Mo. In 1950, Congress granted FFA a federal charter, making it an integral part of public agricultural instruction under the National Vocational Education Acts. FFA receives no federal funding. The U.S. Department of Education provides leadership and helps set direction for FFA as a service to state and local agricultural education programs. The National FFA Organization is an integral part of agricultural education by helping make classroom instruction come to life through realistic, hands-on applications. FFA members embrace concepts taught in agricultural science classrooms nationwide, build valuable skills through handson experiential learning and each year demonstrate their pro ciency in competitions based on real-world agricultural skills. FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.ABOUT FFA

The problem with always taking the usual route is that we rarely see anything new. The pleasure of the unexpected is much more likely when we try a new route. Most of us try hard to not go astray, but every once in a while its worth seeing what happens when we get exercises new skills, such as navigational skills or the willingness to ask for help and directions. In the end, we just dont know what we things by accident, is perhaps the best reason to wander off the trail. It makes sense to take a look every now and then to keep track of where you are, but we should not be afraid to wander off a bit.

Employee of the Year Recognition VERNON Washington County School District will hold a reception By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_ HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County School Board approved the 22-plu s acre site between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road as the future home of Kate M. Smith Elementary School on Monday night. District Maintenan ce Director Mike Park reviewed the proces s the Site Selecti on Committee had gone through in choosing the new location for the school. This has be en an ongoing process of a bout 20 years, Park said, and over the years, some of the names on the comm ittee changed. In October the Department of Education visited the elementary school to det er mine t he need for a new facilit y. Five days later, DOE issued t he nding that there was a critical need for a new elementary school in C hipley, Park sa id. With that inf ormation, the selection com mittee met in late December an d again on Jan. 3 to discuss the choice of scho ol site, which came down to either stay at the curren t l ocation, or move th e school to the 22-plus acre tract of land the district ow ns t hat stretches between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road. Not all of the committee members were able to attend the Jan. 3 meeting, s o Park polled the comm ittee last week at Superintendent Joe Taylors request and the co mm ittee recom mended relocating the elementary school to the new site. With the funding, this is likely to be a twoyear or three-year funding cy cle, Park said. That was an important con sideration, we really dont want to try and have construction going on while we are also havi ng school.

The contractor, Anderson Columbia, did a great job with the project, Barfield said. The contractor not only built the bridge, but also took great care to minimize the effects of the construction on the environment. We found a family of bats living in the old bridge, and that was a factor that had to be mitigated, Barfield said. You cant just say, shoo, bats go find a new home. Protecting the ecosystem of Holmes Creek was a priority with both the DOT and the contractor, he said. Vernon Mayor Michelle Cook opened the ceremony with welcoming remarks, and Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock provided the invocation. Vernon Historical Society President Angia Morris provided some background on the history of Vernon. I want to say thank you to the city of Vernon and its leadership, Barfield said. Without our partnership with the city, this could not be accomplished. Everyone knows that Vernon just got its first stop light, Cook said. It will take us a while to get used to it, but it will really help improve the safety of what was a very dangerous intersection. The original Vernon Bridge, dedicated in 1939, was a popular spot for youngsters wanting to enjoy Holmes Creek, Barfield said. I have memories of the old Vernon Bridge and how children, including him, would jump off of the bridge and into Holmes Creek, he said. Of course, I would never do that now, and we dont want anyone jumping off our new bridge, either. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Carol Boswell and her heifer, Rosie, compete in the Florida State Fair in Tampa.

CHIPLEY The time of year after football season is often thought of as the off season for the CHS Band. However, the winter months have been equally as busy for the student musicians of the Chipley High School Spirit of the Tiger Band. Several members recently have been recognized for their excellence in musicianship. Florida State University hosted the 32nd annual Tri-State Band Festival in December. Three CHS Band students were selected to participate: seniors Julia Veit and Morgan Locke and junior Richard Wayne Davenport. These students rehearsed over three days and then performed a concert in Tallahassee. The Florida Bandmasters Association All-State Bands were hosted by the city of Tampa in January. CHS was represented again this year by two students in the Florida High School All-State Honors Band, selected from schools from around the state: Cary Laird, a junior ute player, and French horn player Davenport. With the nancial help of the Chipley Band Boosters, these students traveled to Tampa to rehearse and perform with this prestigious group in early January. The FBA District Two Small Schools All-District Bands were selected and performed in late January at Marianna High School. Nineteen CHS Band members auditioned for the bands, and all were accepted, with ve students earning rst chair positions. CHS ninthgraders selected for the Junior High All-District Band were Chloe Bruner, clarinet (rst chair); Jesse Deese, French horn; Mikayla Henderson, trumpet; Allie Sapp, ute; Ethan Schwartz, tuba; and Austin Wyatt, trumpet (rst chair). Senior high members from CHS were Davenport; Cassie Drummond, ute; Malcolm Funderburk, clarinet; Andrew King, trumpet; Laird (rst chair); Locke, French horn; Lindsay Miller, ute; Chelsea McEntyre, trumpet; Katie Register, tenor sax; Nick Spencer, tuba; Denise Spracklen, bass clarinet (rst chair); Mary-Rosalyn Taylor, trumpet; and Veit, alto sax (rst chair); The rst weekend in February, seven CHS students performed as members of the 40th annual Southeastern United States Concert Band Clinic and Honor Bands at Troy University. Seven CHS students were placed by audition in the top two honor bands at the event, including Davenport, Drummond, Andrew King, David King, Miller, Spencer and Spracklen. The students rehearsed over three days in Troy and concluded the weekend with a concert to show off what they had learned from their nationally recognized guest conductors. Feb. 8-9 saw almost 400 students converge on the campus of the Baptist College of Florida in Graceville for the Florida Bandmasters Association District Two Solo and Ensemble Performance Assessment. The CHS Band came away with 14 Superior medals. Several students earned Superiors on difcult music and qualied for the FBA State S&E Assessment in March. Qualifying for state were Laird, ute solo; Miller, ute solo; Drummond, ute solo; and Davenport, French horn solo. Color Guard Captain Spracklen also qualied for state by earning a superior on her ag solo. Veit, who played a Beethoven sonata for piano from memory, earned a Superior with Distinction for her performance. Also earning Superior ratings were Deese, with solos on French Horn and xylophone; Spencer, tuba solo; Emily Smith, B-at clarinet solo; and a snare drum duet performed by freshman percussionists Tyler Adkison and Shelby Savell. The CHS Color Guard earned a Superior on their ag quartet routine, as did ag soloist Cheyenne Rabon. Other students performing from CHS that earned an Excellent rating on their events were Bruner, clarinet solo; Megan Julian, bassoon solo; Andrew King, trumpet solo; Eddie Mosley, alto sax solo; Register, tenor sax solo; Spencer, alto sax solo; Spracklen, bass clarinet solo; Austin Wyatt, trumpet solo; and a French horn quartet composed of Locke, Davenport, Andrew King and Deese. These students would like to thank their piano accompanists who volunteered many hours to assist them: Rachel Bruner, Jenee Floyd, Julia Veit and Sam Toole. Congratulations to these students for their ne individual performances. According to CHS Band Director Richard Davenport, band members participation in these extra events are an integral part of what make the Spirit of the Tiger Band program strong and able to carry on its tradition of excellence. The CHS Band is preparing for several performances in the coming months, including the District Concert Band Festival hosted by CHS on March 8-9.

My friend and faithful reader, Earl Ray Kolmetz, read the J.C. Grif n article of last week, even before I had the opportunity to see it. He gave his approval and told me how much he enjoys all of the writings. At the dedication of the new Vernon Bridge, on Feb. 14, Dorothy Bush White also complimented the article, explaining she did not know Mr. Grif n personally, but did know many of the people mentioned, as she is a native of the Orange Hill area. The Prattler will use the Setting It Straight feature of the newspaper, and report that the long established Grif n Reunion is the rst Saturday in May, not in July as reported last week. Since becoming more involved in history and genealogy in recent years, it has come to my attention that the tourist industry in the state of Florida recognizes both services to be an source of state revenue. Traveling results in spending money for motels, eating in restaurants, visiting state parks and museums and contributes signi cantly to the economics of an area. This was brought home to me on Jan. 3, when a telephone call was received from a man who identi ed himself as James Murphy. He told me he and his wife, Beth, were in Chipley, having traveled from their home in Monroe, La., expressly to do research in the Washington County Historical Museum. I met them at the local facility and spent a full hour or more with them before they proceeded on their journey. They planned to visit the courthouse and ultimately travel to New Hope as they were interested in the Vallombrosa Mansion, written on extensively by historian and journalist E.W. (Judge) Carswell. The owner of that historic property was James Bright, who served as postmaster for the short duration the area had its own post of ce. James Murphy said he is a direct descendant of Mr. Bright and is engaged in researching the life and travels of his ancestors. They saw the writings of E.W. Carswell and learned that he was a graduate of Louisiana Tech in Ruston, which is near their Monroe home. Both Mr. and Mrs. Murphy are graduates of that institution. All the experiences at the historical museum made it easy for them to purchase the book, Washington, Floridas Twelfth County, plus the entire set of the smaller books by Mr. Carswell. Before departing Chipley, the visitors enjoyed a noon meal at the Colonial Restaurant. I had referred them there after they inquired of a restaurant where fresh, home-cooked meals are served. I know they found the eatery because the next visit I made to the caf, the proprietor delivered a gift certificate which the Louisiana visitors had graciously left for Hester and me. I have not heard anything further from the couple but have sent them a Thank You note for the gift, plus an aged geological map of the area where Vallombrosa was located. An excerpt from another writing listed James Bright as postmaster. Also included was a copy of information J.D. (Doris) Owens of Wausau recently discovered, concerning another Washington County native who migrated to Lincoln Parish, La., and was elected sheriff there in 1887. The man was Robert Edwin Russ, who was born in Holmes Valley, Washington County, on Aug. 27, 1830, and died Jan. 9, 1902. His parents were Robert Russ and Sarah Gillam Hodges Russ. He migrated with his mother and stepfather, Sion D. Smith, first to Henry County, Ala., then to Maury County, Tenn., and on to Hinds County, Miss., before finally settling in Jackson Parish (Jonesboro), south of Ruston, La. He married Mary Elizabeth Randle in 1855, and the couple had 13 children. In 1873, Russ purchased land in Lincoln Parish, which was established after the Civil War. With the news that the Vicksburg, Shreveport & Paci c Railroad would be built in the vicinity, Russ was persuaded to donate more than 600 acres of his land for a town to be built around the depot. Russ Town opened in 1883, with lots selling for $375 each. So many people ocked to the new town that a year later, in 1884, it became the site for the Lincoln Parish seat of government. Russ was active in the Democratic Party when he served as sheriff. He was a trustee of Ruston College, which in 1894 became the future Louisiana Tech University. He was a lay organizer of First Baptist Church in downtown Ruston. He is interred at the historic Greenwood Cemetery in Ruston. The outstanding Robert E. Russ Award is given in Ruston to individuals cited for outstanding civic service. Mr. Carswells book, Washington, Floridas Twelfth County, page 91, relates some history of Russs migration to Louisiana. Thanks to Doris Owens for further delving into this story and for referring me to the Wikipedia web page. No inquiry was made as to the expenditures the Murphys made on their travels to Florida from their home in Louisiana, but information gleaned, residents here may be ahead of the game in the knowledge indirectly obtained from their visit, especially regarding Robert Edwin Russ. I hope that they were able to add to the information already con rmed on James Bright. Other researchers on the descendants of James Archibald Yates and Melinda Real Yates, have recently visited our town. One of the offspring of the Yates couple is Nancy Jane Yates Brock, the great grandmother of your writer and the wife of Thomas Jefferson Brock for whom the Brock reunion began in 1906, is still being celebrated on the Saturday before Fathers Day. I expect to write on the ndings of these inquires later. An economic boost to our area could result from additional history seekers coming to our county. See you all next week.

In recent months, the city has abandoned alleyway rights behind the Piggly Wiggly and is in the process of abandoning easements on property under consideration by Dollar General, where the Goodlettsville, Tenn.based retail discounter plans to build a new 12,480-square-foot market. Though the idea might have merit, introducing the idea in the middle of the rst reading of the ordinance to abandon easements on the Dollar General property was poor form. Council member Kevin Russell broached the subject, and former council member Cheryl McCall, who was in the audience, also lauded the idea. The proper way to have introduced the idea of charging for alleyway or right-of-way abandonments would have been to nish with the Dollar General property ordinance, then bring the topic up for discussion. Then the city could research the idea, have the city attorney prepare a resolution or ordinance, and then, in good time, the city could enact the policy. However, broaching the subject in the middle of the Dollar General request made it seem as if the city council were attempting to extort funds from the retail chain. Tom Hodges, the representative for Teramore Development, pointed out that A) he was representing local families who own the land which Dollar General is considering purchasing and B) he had never heard of a city charging for abandoning an easement because the property isnt owned by the city but ownership returns to the property owners once the city relinquishes its claim. Though the city council might have the right to charge for such abandonments in the future, bringing the topic up mid-action was not only unprofessional, it was potentially embarrassing both for the council and for the city. As Mr. Hodges pointed out, the property has not been purchased yet, and there is nothing keeping Dollar General from looking for a more hospitable climate in which to build its new facility. Mr. Hodges also pointed out that the improvements to the property, on which nothing currently stands, would bring an increase in ad valorem taxes to the city. Mayor Linda Cain also noted, not for the rst time, that the move would leave an empty building in the downtown of Chipley. Though it is true there will be an empty building downtown, that is not Dollar Generals concern. As the nations largest small-box discount retailer, Dollar Generals main concern is good business. We make shopping for everyday needs simpler and hassle-free, Dollar General claims on its website. The city council would do well to adopt a simpler and hasslefree philosophy when dealing with businesses or industries willing to spend money in Chipley. Dear Editor, I am sad to see all the young lives being lost today. Since I am a father of eight children and have a seventh grandchild on the way, I feel that I have a big stake in all of this. I think there are areas in society that can be improved on. Parents have to teach their children tolerance and not hate. If there were more tolerance there would be less bullying in school and out. When I was in grade school, if we had a disagreement, we would go way out away from the school and settle our differences. But of course we didnt have hand held communication devices that would could talk behind each others back with either. Im thinking that it might help to take a time out and think about what a person is saying before they respond to a could be hateful comment to be a friend, if people could only practice this along with more tolerance then it might be a happier place to live. Im sure God wouldnt want us to pick and choose who we are going to be nice to. If children are being bullies in school and they tell a parent, maybe the parent can go sit in the childs class and observe whats going on there. I did that once and all I had to do is look at the little boy that was bothering my daughter and he didnt do it anymore. Maybe a little more communication between parents and children and a little more involvement with whats going on in their lives. Also health care people have to be careful what they name some of these new illnesses. Some of the names Ive heard sound like they could cause some problem with children at school being teased. There is so much that needs to be done that it just bewilders me as to what the answer is praying is good but I think there has to be more action taken too.

Local Washington County News | A5 Special to the News CHIPLEY RMS students in Greta Draayoms eighth grade science classes took part in a simulated event that introduced them to the robotic engineering concept with experiment kits provided by Washington County 4-H. The experiment, 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge, was part of 4-H National Youth Science Day, which seeks to spark an early youth interest in science and future science careers and to reclaim the nations position of leadership in scienti c exploration. Students utilized engineering principles and enhanced their science skills by assembling their own Eco-Bots and surface controls to manage an environmental clean up. They tested the interaction between the Eco-Bots design features and various surface control con gurations to determine the most effective clean-up solution for the simulated spill. Recent research shows that fewer young people are entering adulthood with the skills required to get a middle class or better job. American leaders recognize that if our county continues to take its superiority in science and technology for granted, it risks losing it. Congress commissioned a study to make recommendations as to how our country can address this concern. The study points out the U.S. is falling behind in its future workforce of scientists, engineers and technology experts. China, France and Singapore 50 percent or higher of all undergraduates receive their degrees in science related elds as opposed to only 15 percent in the U.S. This report also pointed out that the US is facing the following obstacles: Low levels of student interest and pro ciencies in science Need for improved science education Need for positive role models in science, engineering, and tech Opportunities for young people to participate in inquiry based learning Outreach to minorities and females to enter science related careers To combat a national shortage of young people pursuing science college majors and occupations and to enhance the nations contribution to the sciences, 4-H National Youth Science Day demonstrates that science; engineering, math and technology are fun and attainable options for college degrees and future careers. By participating in high-quality, positive youth development programs like 4-H NYSD, youth have the opportunity to be engaged in exciting, hands-on scienti c exploration in order to build the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians. About 4-H National Youth Science Day For more than 100 years, 4-H has been at the forefront of teaching youth about science, engineering and technology. Created to combat a shortage of American young people pursuing science college majors and careers, 4-H National Youth Science Day seeks to spark an early youth interest and leadership in science. Currently, more than ve million young people across the nation participate in 4-H science, engineering and technology programming in topics as varied as robotics, rocketry, wind power, GPS mapping, agricultural science, lm making, water quality and biofuels. And, through the One Million New Scientists, One Million New Ideas campaign, 4-H has undertaken a bold goal of engaging one million additional young people in science, engineering and technology programming by 2013. This years 4-H National Youth Science Day is jointly sponsored Lockheed Martin, Toyota, Donaldson Filtration Solutions, Motorola, Wal-Mart and John Deere. 4-H NYSD is one of the 4-H in the Classroom programs provided by Washington County 4-H. For more information on Washington County 4-H, contact 4-H Youth Development Agent, Julie Pigott Dillard, at 638-6180 or juliepd@u .edu. If you are an adult volunteer interested in beginning a club focused on science/engineering/ technology or hosting a youth workshop, contact Dillard.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Floridas license-free shing days are the perfect venue to try your hand or introduce a friend to some of the nest shing in the world. During its Feb. 13 meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission selected June 1 and Sept. 1 as the 2013 saltwater license-free shing days. On these days, the requirement to have a recreational shing license is waived for Floridas residents and visitors while they are saltwater shing. The FWC offers four license-free shing days a year: two saltwater and two freshwater. Although the Commission selects new saltwater licensefree shing days on an annual basis, freshwater license-free shing days are set to the rst Saturday in April and the second Saturday in June. This years freshwater license-free shing days are April 6 and June 8. Use these days to catch the big one and get rewarded for it. Sign up for an FWC freshwater angler recognition program in advance at www.TrophyCatchFlorida. com to be entered into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. If you catch, photograph and release a largemouth bass heavier than 8 pounds, you will be eligible for great rewards or certi cates for catching qualifying freshwater sh from among 33 exciting species in the program. The FWC will honor license-free freshwater shing days as a legal exemption for sh caught on these dates. To make these events accessible to as many people as possible, the FWC plans these dates around holiday weekends and national events. This years freshwater license-free days are during National Fishing and Boating Week. Highlighted by signi cant national media coverage and public events, this week promotes boating and shing across the country as fun and healthy outdoor activities. In 2012, 37 states had at least one license-free shing day during this annual event. The Sept. 1 saltwater license-free day falls on Labor Day weekend, when many families will be out on the water, enjoying one of the last big shing weekends of summer. The ever-popular bay scallop season is also open to harvest on this date. License-free days not only introduce new anglers to the lifetime sport of shing, they also bene t the state economically as those 3 million anglers cited by the American Sportshing Associations Sport shing in America report, shop at tackle stores, purchase boat fuel and bait and travel to their favorite shing hole. Some of this money even nds its way back to the FWC via the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Sport Fish Restoration Program speci cally to create more shing and boating opportunities. All other regulations such as seasons, size limits and bag limits still apply on these days. Visit MyFWC.com/Fishing to learn more about saltwater and freshwater shing in Florida. GRAY TRIGGERFISH: BALISTES CAPRISCUS Entirely olive-gray Dorsal and anal ns marbled Caudal n lobes elongate in large adults One or more enlarged scales behind gill opening 26 to 29 dorsal n rays 23 to 26 anal n rays Blue spots and short blue lines in dorsal n and on upper half of body, becoming white below anal n Upper rim of eye blue Habitat: Hardbottom, reefs, ledges Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved two changes to how gray trigger sh are managed in Gulf of Mexico state waters in an effort to help rebuild this over shed species. More than 60 percent of gray trigger sh caught in the Gulf of Mexico come from state and federal waters off Florida, which makes the states management of the species integral to the success of the federal rebuilding plan. The changes, approved at the Feb. 13 Commission meeting in Orlando, will make state regulations consistent with pending federal regulations and will include implementing a June 1 through July 31 closed recreational season and a twosh daily recreational bag limit. Federal shery managers also approved changes to the commercial harvest of Gulf gray trigger sh. These changes include a 12sh trip limit and a June 1 through July 31 harvest closure. The FWC requires shers harvesting gray trigger sh commercially in Gulf state waters to have a federal reef sh permit. One condition of the federal reef sh permit is that harvesters must follow federal reef sh rules, even when they are shing in state waters. This means that when the new federal commercial trip limit and closed season take effect sometime in April or May, harvesters in state waters must abide by these rules. Gray trigger sh have a unique spawning behavior that makes them vulnerable during the peak spawning season, usually between June 1 and July 31. Male trigger sh coax females to nesting areas, where they all care for and guard their eggs after spawning. Closing gray trigger sh during their peak spawning time, implementing the twosh-per-day recreational bag limit and the 12sh commercial trip limit should help rebuild the species.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) proposed a 44-day recreational red snapper season for Gulf of Mexico state waters at its meeting Feb. 13 in Orlando. All theyve done is add to the drama, said Destin Capt. Mike Eller. Its just a mess. The season FWC is proposing would start June 1 and end July 14. However, the proposed season is inconsistent with the current proposed federal season, which is slated to be just 27 days. The Commission will make a nal decision on this season at the April Commission meeting in Tallahassee, according to a news release from the FWC. We hope it was a knee jerk reaction and made out of frustration, Eller said. He said, it sounds like they are trying to send a message of disgust as to the way the National Marine Fisheries has handled the red snapper shery. For years, Texas has bucked the system, and has gone non-compliant in state waters for red snapper. However at last weeks Gulf Council Meeting in Mobile, National Marine Fisheries was given the authority to cut days in federal waters for those states that dont mirror the federal dates for red snapper. The system is so broken, Eller said. Charter boats could be the big loser in any ght between the state and feds because captains have to abide by federal laws no matter where they catch the sh, and if red snapper is closed in federal waters, then boats that hold a federal permit cant land one in state waters, even if the state decides to go non-compliance with the federal. If the state decides to go non-compliant with the federal guidelines for red snapper, its just creating an environment for people to break the law, Eller said. FWC adds to drama in red snapper season saga

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com A Section From Staff Reports Chipley 57, Malone 47 CHIPLEY The Chipley Lady Tigers took the lead just three minutes into the Class 1A Regional Semi nal game and never looked back, pelting the Malone Lady Tigers 57-47 Feb. 12 at Chipley High School. By the end of the rst quarter, Chipley was ahead 19-11. That margin increased to a 13-point lead in the second period, but the Malone girls whittled that gap down to 9 by halftime. In the third quarter, Chipleys Aaliyah Coleman and Jasmine Belser came out strong, stretching the Lady Tigers edge to 37-26, but the Malone squad came back and closed the gap to 5 points in the nal period. A layup by Belser and a three-pointer by Sorey put Chipley up 50-39 with just over 5 minutes left in the game, and Malone was unable to get closer than 6 the rest of the evening. Belser led four Chipley players in double-digit scoring with 18 points, while Coleman added 15, and Rakeia Sorey and Amanda Paschal each scored 11. For Malone, Curteeona Brelove tallied 16 points to lead, with Angelica Livingston adding 11 and Briana Dallas netting 10. Lady Tigers 63, Lady Blue Devils 49 BONIFAY The Chipley Lady Tigers brought home the victory against the Holmes County Lady Blue Devils on Saturday with a 63-49 win, earing the Lady Tigers a trip to the Class 1A Final Four. Chipley, 21-4, was meeting Holmes County for the fourth time this season. The Tigers lost both times during the regular season but edged the Blue Devils by a point to win the district title, and the Region 1-1A championship proved to be no contest. The bitter rivals made frantic efforts to capture and keep the ball, both proving dif cult as the rivals stayed neck and neck, ending the rst period with a score of 6-6. We couldnt put the ball in the basket for nothing tonight, absolutely nothing, Holmes County coach Devon Miles said. But they are good. They improved every single time we played them. The Tigers backcourt of Jasmine Belser, Rakeia Sorey and Amanda Pascal was more than the Blue Devils could handle. They combined for 37 points, Chipley outscoring Holmes County by 12 points in the second quarter to lead 29-17 at halftime. Both sides fought a constant tug of war match for points. This continued until the Lady Tigers found their stride and pounced on the Lady Blue Devils, ending the rst half 29-17. The Lady Tigers didnt lose any of their vigor during halftime as the second half started, ending the third period with a score of 47-28. The Lady Blue Devils made a heated effort to make a comeback, but the Lady Tigers proved too wild to tame as they fought their way to victory, 63-49. Belser led the Tigers with 17 points, and Sorey and Pascal each had 10. Ebony Williams added 13 points to help offset a low-scoring effort from Chipleys 6-foot-2 center Aaliyah Coleman. Selena Long led Holmes County, 19-10, with 10 points. Point guard Mikayla Moore had all nine of her points in the second half, and Hannah Prescott had eight. Holmes County shot 3 of 18 on 3-point attempts. Their guards are really, really good, Miles said of Chipley. And their role players played well for them tonight. Im super excited about our victory, said Chipley coach Heather Hingson. They really came to play tonight. This is a great opportunity for the girls.

The Seahawks turned back defending Class 1A state champion Ponce de Leon 54-44 on Saturday night to win the Region 21A title. Just for this school, this community, I cant explain how much this means, said head coach Kevin Craig, who took over a program in 2004 that had nished 0-25 the year before. Im just so proud to be a Seahawk right now. The outcome avenged a loss to PDL in last years regional nal. South Walton took a 23-6 record into its state semi nal against Villages on Tuesday. Ponce de Leon nished 23-6. Senior Eve Heffron scored a team-high 15 points for South Walton to go along with seven rebounds and seven assists as the Seahawks nished a perfect 14-0 at home. South Walton forced 26 turnovers and held the Pirates to 34 percent shooting. Leading scorer Ashley Harper had 13 points, with just two coming in the second half. Early on, South Walton looked overmatched in every facet of the game as it opened with ve turnovers and 2-for-7 shooting. Meanwhile, Harper scored seven points in the rst ve minutes to put the Pirates ahead 16-7. The Seahawks stormed back. Heffron knocked down three free throws, and Katie Trejo and Casey Perot delivered baskets in the post during a 9-0 run. Perot had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. With the Pirates encountering foul trouble, South Walton built a 34-25 halftime lead. PDL coach Tim Alford said his team slumped when two post players were collared with three fouls by the second quarter. South Walton was 11-15 at the free-throw line in the second quarter alone. It was going our way early, and that took it away from us, Alford said. South Walton led 41-34 after three quarters, but PDL clawed as close as 46-44. We fouled, had a turnover here and there. We were in foul trouble the whole time, Alford said. The Seahawks rebuilt their lead with clutch freethrow shooting. It was a struggle. We had a good chance (in the fourth quarter) but didnt handle ourselves well, Alford said. We just lost our composure. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE de LEON Not even the rain could dampen spirits as the Ponce de Leon Lady Pirates won the victory against the Port St. Joe Lady Tiger Sharks in the Region 2-1A tournament Feb. 12 with a score of 62-20. There was never a silent or dull moment as the Lady Pirates started and nished aggressively against the Lady Tiger Sharks, with the rst period ending 23-3. The Lady Tiger Sharks took the defensive more toward the middle of the second period, continually taking back the ball, but they found it dif cult to make the needed shots to catch up with the Lady Pirates lead, ending the half 37-10. Breaking through the Lady Tiger Sharks defenses, the Lady Pirates picked up the pace and afforded PSJ very little maneuvering room as the third period ended 54-15. The Lady Pirates kept ring all cannons as they fought their way to victory with a nal score of 62-20. I thought we played very well tonight, said coach Tim Alford. I am very happy with our efforts. Hopefully we can sustain this momentum and the girls continue to have a lot of fun while doing it. The Lady Pirates faced the South Walton Lady Seahawks at 7 p.m. Saturday in South Walton to play for the chance to go to State. Its going to be a close game, said South Walton coach Kevin Craig. Theyve got the best players in 1A on their team, and Coach Alford does a great job. Weve played them before and lost, and were looking forward to playing them again. CECILIA SPEARS | The News The Lady Pirates kept ring all cannons as they fought their way to victory with a nal score of 62-20 against the Port St. Joe Lady Tiger Sharks on Feb. 12. By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com LAKELAND Senior forward Ebony Williams scored a career-high 18 points, but if there was one constant for Chipley in its 55-50 Class 1A semi nal win Tuesday over Hilliard it was team. The Tigers, 23-4, advanced to this afternoons state championship game against South Walton with contributions from a number of players. Devan Blair elevated the Tigers with eight rsthalf points when her teammates were struggling. Jasmine Belser overcame an off-day shooting with a rare four-point play. Sophomore point guard Amanda Paschal took over the game for a key stretch in the third quarter when she scored nine of her 13 points and offset center Aaliyah Colemans foul trouble with critical rebounding. But it always came back to team. It was a team win; our bench played strong, said head coach Heather Hingson, who guided Chipley to its rst Final Four victory in girls basketball. We trusted whoever was in there. Hingson credited Blair for jump-starting the Tigers con dence after a lackluster rst quarter when they trailed 8-6. Chipley led only 24-22 at halftime, with Bria Saunders and Kasha Austin combining to score all but one point for Hilliard. That called for a change in strategy. We went to a man to man and left one of our girls guarding two players, Hingson said. We were double-teaming (Saunders) and letting someone else take over for them. They werent able to step up and do it. The Tigers also were able to stay competitive on the boards despite the 6-foot Aaliyah Coleman sitting for long stretches because of early foul trouble. Paschal led them with nine rebounds, Hilliard with just a 39-37 edge for the game. That was amazing; I know we got outrebounded if you look at the stats, but to continue without Aaliyah, Hingson said. Shes just a huge presence for us offensively and defensively in the paint. Chipley controlled bench scoring 22-2 led by Williams effort. She scored 12 points in the second half, with Paschal adding all but two of her 13 after halftime. The Tigers also got two key baskets by Braylee Pooser midway through the fourth quarter that opened a 47-38 lead. The margin expanded to 53-41 on a basket by Williams with 2:23 remaining, and Chipley was able to withstand a Hilliard rally by making 10 of 11 free throws. Saunders, a 5-5 senior guard, paced Hilliard with a game-high 26 points. Austin, a freshman forward, added 14 points and 10 rebounds, but the rest of the Flashes combined for only 10 points.

By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Students throughout Holmes and Washington Counties will be celebrating National FFA Week this week, Feb. 16-23. National FFA Week gives members a chance to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters host teacher appreciation breakfasts, conduct Ag Olympics competitions, speak to the public about agriculture, volunteer for community service projects and more. The week of George Washingtons birthday was designated as National FFA Week in 1947 at a National FFA Board of Directors meeting. FFA Week always runs from Saturday to Saturday and encompasses Feb. 22, Washingtons birthday. At Chipley High School, FFA sponsor Michele Curts reports a variety of activities are planned. On Tuesday, we are having a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast, and Wednesday is a cookout for the FFA members, Curts said. Thursday is Barn Yard Day at Roulhac Middle School to teach the middle schoolers about agriculture and FFA. We are asking all former FFA members that still have their FFA jackets to display them around the community to promote awareness of National FFA week, Curts said. This is a great FFA program with the focus of continually improving, she said. The community and school support is absolutely wonderful. We have started an alumni chapter of adults whose primary focus is to support the students in the program. We have goals to continue to grow the Chipley FFA chapter and to hopefully start a middle school program at Roulhac in the future, Curts said. I am extremely excited by the students, their dedication, enthusiasm and belief in this FFA chapter and that is the key to our success. Vernon FFA Sponsor Donna Keith said their program also is looking to start an alumni chapter like the one Chipley has in place. They are a very active organization, and we would like to get our parents and alumni involved here in the same way, Keith said. In Holmes County, the Poplar Springs FFA program has been very busy. The Poplar Springs Middle School students won several ribbons at District Forestry and went on to State. District competition was held Oct.11 and the State competition was held Nov.15 and 16. High school student Easton Hinson won third highest out of the district in forestry equipment identi cation. The district is from Chipley to Pensacola, and from Panama to Alabama. At state the middle school won third place out of all of the state of Florida in timber cruising. FFA Advisor Lowell Hudson said, I am very proud of the accomplishments they made in these career development events. On Dec. 13, Poplar Springs students won in three different career development events at the Sub District FFA Competitions held in Chipley. Lacey Shehee won second place in creed speaking. Jake Wangle won rst place in tractor safety/driving. Alexus Williams won second place in extemporaneous public speaking. All of these students did great at the career development events they entered, Hudson said. Washington, Holmes at a glance INDEX Society .................................

FFA membership today is comprised of 557,318 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,498 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, according to the organizations website. FFA operates on local, state and national levels. Student members belong to chapters organized at the local school level. Agriculture educators serve as chapter advisors. Chapters are organized under state associations headed by an advisor and executive secretary, often employees of the state department of education. States conduct programs and host annual conventions. The National FFA Organization is governed by a board of directors, charters state associations and provides direction, program materials and support for local chapters and state FFA associations. FFA was organized nationally in 1928 in Kansas City, Mo. In 1950, Congress granted FFA a federal charter, making it an integral part of public agricultural instruction under the National Vocational Education Acts. FFA receives no federal funding. The U.S. Department of Education provides leadership and helps set direction for FFA as a service to state and local agricultural education programs. The National FFA Organization is an integral part of agricultural education by helping make classroom instruction come to life through realistic, hands-on applications. FFA members embrace concepts taught in agricultural science classrooms nationwide, build valuable skills through handson experiential learning and each year demonstrate their pro ciency in competitions based on real-world agricultural skills. FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. ABOUT FFA

Wander Off the Trail We are c reatures of habit, and this is just as true in our day-to-day travels as it is in our everyday activities and rituals. The problem with always taking the usual route is that we rarely see anything new. The pleasure of the unexpected is much more likely when we try a new route. Most of us try hard to not go astray, but every once in a while its worth seeing what happens when we get exercises new skills, such as navigational skills or the willingness to ask for help and direc tions. In the end, we just dont know what we things by accident, is perhaps the best reason to wander off the trail. It makes sense to take a look every now and then to keep track of where you are, but we should not be afraid to wander off a bit. We can always get home from wher ever we are.
