Senator seeks money to investigate reform school TALLAHASSEE (AP) U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said on March 27 that hes pursuing funding from a $3 million federal grant program to help identify buried remains at a defunct boys reform school in the Florida Panhandle. The grant money is meant for exhuming bodies and identifying them through DNA, the Democratic senator told reporters. Nelson said he was contacted by a brother of a boy who died at the former Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna. The senator said he knew the school well as a boy because his family would pass it as they drove to see relatives in the Panhandle. It was kind of known, You dont want to be sent to the boys reform school, he said. Former students have alleged that physical and sexual abuse and even wrongful deaths occurred at the school. It opened in 1900 and closed in 2011. A building known as the White House was notorious for beatings.

B7-8 Animal control topic of board discussion Greenhead private community asks for county help By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.co m CHIPLEY Washington County Public Services Director David Corbin discussed animal control at Leisure Lakes during Thursdays Board of County Commissioners meeting. Corbin was instructed by the board to meet with the Leisure Lakes Property Owners Association to discuss providing animal control services to the private community. Calls for assistance have come from the Greenhead community, but Corbin said the county has only responded to calls in gated communities in cases of dangerous animal reports. We have no jurisdiction at Leisure Lakes except in emergency cases as de ned by state statute, Corbin said. I dont know if they want us to start handling all calls, or just on a case-by-case basis. Corbin said the association recently adopted the countys policy for animal control. We could get pretty deep in if we start trying to handle all their calls, Corbin added. It would be a good idea for David and the county to sit down and discuss with the property owners association what services they are seeking, said County Attorney Jeff Goodman. Goodman said he thought the county should consider contracting those services and set a fee to cover the expenses involved in animal control. Corbin said it cost the county more than $38 per animal the county drops off at the shelter.

This would result in added responsibilities for our current staff. Costs are on the rise, and with the warm weather, were going to see more animals than we can handle, Corbin said. Whether we do this for free or at a cost, I would like to see the county have some kind a agreement in writing, Goodman added. I strongly suggest that if we do anything, we have a contract and we charge for it, said Commissioner Joel Pate. If law enforcement is called out for a dangerous dog, then he has to go by law, Commissioner Charles Brock said of the county animal control of cer. Ive been when peoples faces have been ripped, and Ive seen deep lacerations on their arms from bites, Corbin said. In the case of pursuing a dangerous animal, we are also allowed to go onto private property. Chairman Alan Bush asked Corbin to meet with the Leisure Lakes Property Owners Association then bring back the results of that meeting to the boards next workshop. In other business, the board approved a request for an easement for Mark Pate of Chipley, who upon having his property resurveyed for the bank, discovered that his pole barn sits on the county drainage ditch right-of-way. The bank needs an easement, and I feel horrible for Mr. Pate, Goodman said. But as a lawyer, I always think about the divorce and not the marriage. What scares me is the next property owner who is going to want a variance. The board approved the request with a 3-2 vote. Bush and Commissioner Lynn Gothard voted against the easement, while Brock, Pate and Commissioner Todd Abbott voted in favor of the request. Taking into consideration what the attorney has said, I think we need to look at these things on a case-by-case basis, Abbott said. This easement will take our right-of-way down to 32 feet, but our maintenance supervisor says that will not be an issue. Also this is a drainage ditch, its not like we are giving him usable land. ANIMAL CONTROL from page A1 dont cost an arm and a leg to do, Sweeney said. As the Park Manager of Falling Waters State Park, Sweeney is familiar with geocaching the state park already has three geocaching sites located within its boundaries. Sweeney said last week there was a family from Indiana geocaching at Falling Waters State Park. In fact, the waterfall at the park is featured on the website, earthcache.org, Sweeney added. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices, according to the website, geocaching.com. Participants navigate to a speci c set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to nd a hidden container called a geocache at that location. Once the geocache is found, the seeker signs a logbook showing that the site was located. The containers also sometimes contain prizes, but geocachers are asked to replace what they take with a similarly suitable prize. The geocaching website suggests travel and tourism professionals create a GeoTour of their region. Its easy to put your destination on the map for millions to discover, according to geocaching.com. You already have the raw materials. You know the friendly neighbors, the best places to eat, and that one special spot that people should never miss on their visit. The question is: how do you entice the travelers and tourists of the world to discover your destination? Sweeney said geocaches can be located anywhere places of historical interest, places of beauty, or even at events, such as the Watermelon Festival. Washington County is a great place to geocache, Sweeney said. He said that if there were 100 geocache sites in the county, then the TDC could award something like a lapel pin to seekers who nd a certain percentage of the sites. We can get pins for just pennies, and we can ask for $2 or $3 for them in return. People are already geocaching in Washington County, but if the TDC were to develop a GeoTour, that could drive searchers to speci c places, such as Hard Labor Creek or the Washington County Historical Museum. We could have a list of sites, then have our booth at the Watermelon Festival be the last stop, Council member Ted Everett said. A GeoTour lets our community of millions know youre open for business with a story to tell, interesting locations, and family-friendly activities, according to the geocaching website. These unique tours bring locations to life through a series of engaging geocaches placed within a speci c area or along a route. The geocaching community is ve million strong and growing, according to geocaching.com. Armed with smartphones or dedicated GPS devices, geocachers are always searching for their next nd. The impact of GeoTour is completely measureable, according to the website. Monitoring allows for tracking the number of Passports and Geocoins deployed and the number of geocaching logs entered by visitors on Geocaching.com. Why dont you spearhead this? Everett asked Sweeney. Lets try and do something with the Watermelon Festival. I think this can really have a positive impact, Sweeney said. There are so many neat things to do in Washington County, people are going to say, why didnt we come here sooner? GEOCACHING from page A1 said Rockburn. We have held 174 classes this year and have helped 215 clients in one way or another and weve got a hard ght before us as weve approached the 40th anniversary since abortion was legalized. Weve lost over 55 million babies to abortion during this time, 1.2 to 1.4 million babies are aborted every year in the United States and in our state alone we lose 224 babies a day to the 69 abortion clinics we have. Rockburn said it is because of these statistics that it is up to local organizations such as the West Florida Baptist Association to provide free services so young people dont feel forced to abort because of rejection or lack of assistance.

The states unemployment rate dropped from 7.9 percent in December 2012 to 7.8 percent in January 2013 a decrease of 0.1 percentage points over-the-month. Accelerating job growth con rms that Floridas labor market is improving heading into 2013. Florida employers added 15,400 non-agricultural jobs during the month a solid payroll employment change when compared to previous months. The number of unemployed individuals decreased by 5,000 over-themonth, bringing the number of unemployed Floridians to 740,000. Both employment gains and a reduction in the number of unemployed Floridians contributed to the falling jobless rate. Although this indicates the labor market is recovering, the pace of recovery still remains gradual in nature. New housing permits increased by 22 percent from December 2012 to January 2013, indicating that the housing recovery remains intact despite fears regarding sequestration and a higher payroll tax rate. While new housing permits are typically volatile from month-to-month, the overall trend for Floridas housing market is positive. The increasing activity in housing bodes well for Floridas economic recovery, as nearly 50 percent of the states employment loss since the Great Recession directly results from the contraction in the construction industry. Additional building permits suggest that we should expect more home construction in the months ahead. As home prices increase across the state, we expect overall economic activity to grow as a result of new home construction and increased consumer spending. During the month of March, Floridas consumer con dence index increased slightly to 74 from a reading of 73 in the month of February. Consumer con dence takes into account residents nancial situations and outlook for the economy. The long-run trend in consumer con dence has been positive since the time series bottomed out in mid-2008. Despite the gains in consumer con dence, the index is still below the pre-recession levels which typically ranged from 80 to 95. As consumption expenditures account for the majority of gross domestic product (the total value of all nal goods and services produced by labor and capital within a geographic region), consumer sentiment and expectations are key metrics for monitoring overall economic activity. The recent rally in U.S. equities prices has gained attention in recent weeks, and is an encouraging sign for the economic outlook. Although we expect that much of the run-up in stock prices is because of the Federal Reserves policy of quantitative easing, investors appear to be increasing purchases as a result of stronger U.S. economic data in recent months. In February 2013, employers added 236,000 new jobs as the unemployment rate ticked down to 7.7 percent from 7.9 percent in the month of January. This report was above expectations, and suggests continued recovery of the national economy. Despite positive economic data, future growth will largely depend on the trajectory of Federal Reserve policy as well as risks from the global economy. The Federal Reserve appears to be continuing their asset purchases, known as quantitative easing, until they see strong evidence of a signi cant improvement in the labor market outlook.

Through the years Ive heard many comments about the beauty of Bonifays cemetery. At this time of year when the azaleas are in full bloom, it is especially pretty. Located on the northwest side of the town on a rolling hill, the view from all directions is refreshing. Looking north, a stand of native red buds bright pink blooms delight the eye. To the south a tiered planting separates the cemetery proper from the surrounding woodlands. On the west side bright shades of hot pink azaleas delineate the white and black portions of the burial grounds, harking back to yesteryear when strict separation of the races was the law of the land. The cemetery was designated when the city was chartered and the streets laid out by Mr. Ban l, although he is not buried there himself. His grave is off Ban l Avenue just west of the old L&N Train Depot location. Many folks give Bonifay Garden Club credit for the ne condition of the cemetery, but it is actually cared for by the city of Bonifay under the direction of a committee appointed by the city council. However, the beauti cation projects which account for the beauty of the place is the protg of the Garden Club. The late Mrs. Brooks (Marie Armstrong) Padgett is credited with starting the on-going project to beautify and keep up the citys burial grounds. Her mother, Mrs. Susan Armstrong, had taken a personal interest in the cemetery. Since the early 1950s the committee that was formed under Mrs. Padgetts leadership always includes at least one Garden Club member. In cooperation with the city council and a crew paid by the city the place has been kept beautiful with the help of donations from the families whose loved ones are buried there. Others I can recall who have been involved in the improvement and upkeep of the cemetery are Mrs. Harvey (Palmer) Spears, Mrs. Ben (Mary Wilcox) Swindle, Mrs. R.H. (Sarah Green) Segrest, Mrs. George (Ann) Howell, Mrs. Alex (Mozell Miller) Shepherd, Mrs. Clifford (Annie Lee Brock) Williams, Mrs. Ernest Cox, Mrs. Parker Grant, Mrs. Pat (Marion Creel) Kelly, Mr. and Mrs. Maston (Eula Lee Ross) Barden and too many others to name, most of them deceased. The current committee is composed of Mrs. Wilheminia (Wilcox) Belser, Mrs. Tom (Vonzie Brooks) Jenkins, Mrs. Willard (Joan Hand) Steverson, Mrs. Tom (Velma Jenkins) Stubbs, Mrs. Ed(Susan Treadwell) Pittman, Mr. Kenneth Yates, and City Councilman Roger Brooks make up the committee. Mrs. J.W. (Edna Bellot) McDonald is an immediate past member. They have recently purchased and installed new gates at the entrance to the cemetery, which is on the east side. The stone enclosure with decorative iron gates featuring 5 ag standards guard the east entrance. James Sellers was instrumental in nding a source for the metal gates and the decorative stone. Roger Brooks located the ags. Through the years the driveway has been lined with crepe myrtle. Beds of knockout roses and white decorative panels separate the entry and exit lanes. A carrollian tower marks the skyline to the northeast. It has recently been refurbished with paint and a new metal roof, a project of Mr. Yates. When I was teaching 8th grade at Bonifay Middle School, visiting the nearby city cemetery was an end-of the year activity. It is just the right distance to the school to make the walk there and back within a period of class time. At rst the students thought it a little weird to visit a cemetery, but then they really got into it. They were assigned to nd an epitaph or two or look for Civil War veterans, or other veterans. Some asked about the circumstances of the death of a brother and sister who died on the same day. I was able to give them sketchy details of the drowning that occurred in Pate Pond of a Miller brother and sister. Visiting the cemetery turned out to be a really good activity as much history is contained there. Today, it is still a beautiful and serene place to visit even if you dont have family there. You are also urged to make a donation to the cemetery fund, especially if Its the burial place of family members. Tax deductible donations may be sent to the City of Bonifay Cemetery Fund or given to any committee member. The News is published every Wednesday and Saturday by Halifax Media Group, 1364 N.

Nicole P. Bare eld, Publisher Randal Seyler, Editor Cameron Everett, Production Supervisor Wounded warrior gives thanks Dear Editor, On February 22, I was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It was a happy day. I had been at Walter Reed since July 6, 2012. during that time, I received hundreds of cards from people across the Panhandle, and I have been the bene ciary of the prayers of thousands more. I hope you will allow me to express my gratitude and to say thank you through this letter. Walter Reed is a wondrous place albeit for horrible reasons. The doctors, nurses and therapists there are the very best. Moreover, the many non-pro t organizations who are dedicated to our wounded warriors insure that whatever our soldiers need is provided. God bless them all. I am currently assigned to the Community Based Warrior Transition Unit in Orlando. I will be living in Panama City until my medical board review. It is good to nally be home. Sincerely, Carter Hess Sgt. U.S. Army Panama City In the rst Perrys Prattler for March, your writer reached back into February for a story he had planned to write. As April arrives, the impression is to again look back to the preceding month for a column topic. Etched in my mind is the fact that my grandmother, Hannah Malinda Brock Wells, was born on March 2, 1878 in Washington County. She died May 9, 1960. She and my grandfather, James Thomas Wells, are buried at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. The Prattler does not remember not having the paternal grandparents closely associated, and an active in uence in the events and affairs of our own household. Our daddy, Hugh Thomas Wells, was their youngest of four sons, and the only one who, upon marrying, remained on the farm. He merely moved up the hill from his parents and continued farming. This relationship never changed as the grandparents, and our parents, made this location their home throughout their entire lifetime. My grandmother made this statement each year as her birthday arrived: Well, if I can just make it through March, I can make it the rest of the year. This worked well for her until she reached age 82 in March of 1960 and died in June of that year. As the report goes, she simply lay down for an afternoon nap while in the home of her daughter, Virginia (Jenny) Wells Hinson and husband, James Arthur Hinson and never woke up. Grandma Wells was an in uential and helpful person in her neighborhood. In todays modern terminology, she would have been labeled a survivor. She knew how to skimp and save, but she did so in order to administer assistance to others that she knew to be in need. I am not sure that gs, nor g preserves, have been proven to possess any medicinal qualities, but the old timers in my early life seemed to believe that they did. Hannah Wells harvested every g from the proli c trees that were nourished and protected on the old home place for many years. Sometime the fruit was cooked to a preserve state in the family wash pot. Most of the time, the product was sweetened with home made sugar cane syrup as granulated, store bought white sugar, was a scarce commodity in most all farm households. These treasured gs were kept in the proper temperature to assure freshness throughout the year. When a neighbor came to her door, advising: Cousin Hannah, I have a very sick child and he is begging for gazerves! Can you help me? The answer was always yes without hesitation and no demand for payment or promise to repay in kind for the item as a later date. My grandmother was always good for one or more bantam fryers from her ock that ran the range of the home place. She shared these chickens for frying or stewing hens for baking dressing, especially when there was a sick person in the community who needed special food. I have read that chicken soup de nitely has healing qualities for those with certain maladies. This lady claimed the gift of treating thrush in children. One theory that this ability is limited to those ladies whose fathers died prior to their birth. This did not apply to my grandmother as she de nitely lived many years along with her father, Thomas Jefferson Brock. The ritual of treating thrush had to be done in secret, according to legend. Hannah Wells simply took the child by the hand, stepped outside her kitchen door in the dark and did whatever she had been taught to do and soon returned inside. As I recall, her treatments were always effective. A few weeks ago, the topic of Aurora Borealis (Great Northern Lights) was mentioned. This phenomenon was observed by our family in the early 1940s. Our grandparents joined in the trek of a host of people who were walking northward thinking we would come to the source of the lights within a short distance. I wrote of telling Kim Osborne of this story recently when she, and others, were here on a genealogy search. She was happy to know that the great grandmother she never knew, Laura Nelson Ellis, joined in that momentous walk. At the Farm Bureau Spaghetti Supper, held in February, Leola Craven Brock, came to our table to tell of her enjoyment of the story. She related the experience of her parents, Bill Craven and Bobby Tobias Craven, taking all the children on a northward drive from their Poplar Head Community home in the early 1970s after seeing the mysterious lights. She reports they expected to see the source of the light once reaching Highway 280. The group turned back after peaking the hill near the Jim Clemmons home, without learning the source of the lights. On March 25, an email came to the News Of ce, addressed to the Prattler from a Vernon native. He told of his familys experience of seeing the lights from their Vernon home, also in the 1940s. The writer was Bayllye Gwynne May, now living in Orlando, the son of Delbert May and Helen Dalton May, both from prominent Vernon pioneer families. May, a retired U.S. Navy man, reports crossing the arctic circle in Alaska, Norway and Finland and traveled the seven continents and was able to tell his comrades in those foreign lands that he had seen the Great Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) from my Vernon, Florida home on Roache Avenue (formerly Broad Street), across the open lot south of the building that Curt Roach operated an oyster bar and pool hall and where Marvin and Vera Owens ran a grocery store. Later, Irvin Roche opened the Vernon Theater on this space and operated it for many years. History seems to run full circle and I am happy to have covered a portion of it today.

Woodham said he was looking forward to another two years and hoped to keep up the momentum as city projects continue on. I look forward to continue serving the residents of Bonifay to the best of my ability, Brooks said. Mayor Lawrence Cloud appointed Micah McCormick to be vice mayor once again. Jim Hall was announced to be the citys code enforcement of cer. Police Chief Chris Wells said Hall was well-experienced of cer, who is currently in employment to take on the additional task in code enforcement. There is going to be a little expense at rst as we print off citations, Wells said. City Clerk Jeri Gibson requested an update on renaming Eastside Park in honor of Etta Mae White Hudson.

The next meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 8 at the Bonifay City Hall. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Panama City Beach Mayor Gayle Oberst paid a visit to the Bonifay Kiwanis Club as a guest speaker at their March 27 meeting. With the road becoming a four-lane, their driveway essentially will be our driveway and with only 45 miles and two red lights separating us, were practically becoming neighbors, said Roger Brooks, program coordinator for Bonifay Kiwanis Club. Oberst agreed with Brooks, saying that a large majority of their visitors come through Bonifay and the expansion and improvements in Panama City Beach also affected the Bonifay area as well because of the four-lane expansion project to State Road 79. The new airport is doing well, and we may be getting another low-cost carrier with Delta, Oberst said. Our address is Panama City Beach, not just Panama City. Pier Park was nished in 2008, and they do have a Pier Park West, and they are planning on selling that. She said there was groundbreaking ceremony held just north of that property where they expect another shopping center to be erected and will include stores such as Dicks Sporting Goods, Rooms to Go, Logans Steakhouse, Chilis and a Fresh Market or World Market. Weve opened yet another Super Walmart, but it is not replacing the other Walmart (it is in addition to), as well as a new Shoneys at Pier Park; and that means thousands of new jobs for this area, Oberst said. Aaron Bessant Park is a beautiful park located next to Pier Park and through the Tourist Development Council and the bene ts from BP due to the Oil Spill we were able to redo that area. The new stage is big enough for some professional acts to come in. She said on April 5 there would be a performance held there by the Panama City Pop Orchestra then later on there would be a jazz festival and performances by Martin Theater. Were trying to bring some culture to the beach, she said. Were adding 58 more bathrooms to Pier Park, and when I mentioned this while waiting in line to the womens restroom and got a standing ovation. Oberst said there would also be an upcoming festival sight, which will be parking during events and three soccer elds when it wasnt in use. Theres a 3,000-acre conservation park with nature trails and boardwalks free to the public that came from efforts with every environmental conservation agency in Florida to stop putting reused water into the Bay, she said. Weve used Department of Transportation grants to pave nine miles outside the parks. Were transforming Front Beach Road to include a mass transient lane and underground utilities. Theyve completed three streets and one section of Front Beach Road, according to Oberst. Weve completed the place in front of Pineapple Willies, she said. It is beautiful with places to walk and sit and wander it leisure. This is an exciting development for our area. She also thanked Bonifay for being an area that helps traf c arrive in Panama City Beach. Since youre helping us get traf c to us weve had over 200,000 visit our area last weekend alone, Oberst said. Things are going very well for Spring Break, weve only had one casualty who drank himself to death. Weve increased our protection efforts, theres more security, and theyre more strict. She said that Back Beach Road has been enabled with ber optics at all the lights to help alleviate congestion. Theres a room with a wall of televisions featuring every light on Back Beach Road, she said. Theyre constantly being monitored, and those lights can be tripped if they need to alleviate congestion. Were also six-laning more of Back Beach Road, which increased traf c capacity by 25 percent. Oberst also said that Panama City Beach is growing fast. Weve almost doubled our population since the last census, she said. For the rst time Bay County and Panama City Beach got together to make our ordinances the same and developed a mutual aide agreement, which allows arrests to expand into each of our areas and increases our security. She said that Bed Tax is now at 5 cents to the dollar and managed by the Tourist Development Council, a Bay County Agency, to renourish the beach and market to outside areas that they are a fun, family beach. The TDC did a great job with the oil spill, Oberst said. We talked about no oil on the beach and that people could keep coming out to a safe clean beach when the scare was at its highest. She said that things are looking very well for Panama City Beach. The economy is looking good for us, she said. Now if only we could get the national economy under control.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 3, 2013 Page 6 www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section If you had been standing on the eastern shore of present-day Florida around St. Augustine on March 3, 1513, you would have witnessed three sailing ships bringing men ashore: The Santiago, the San Cristobal and the Santa Maria de Consolacion. On one of these ships was the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, the rst European ever to set foot on Florida soil. Thinking he had discovered an island, he named it La Florida in recognition of the verdant landscape and because it was the Easter season, which the Spaniards called Pascua Florida (Festival of Flowers). The precise location of this landing has been in dispute for many years. Some historians believe it was around St Augustine. Others believe it was farther south near a small harbor today called Ponce de Leon Inlet. After remaining ashore for about ve days they turned south for further exploration. On the way south they encountered a strong current that was later named the Gulf Stream. They sailed south and eventually crossed through the Keys and headed back north reaching the mainland around May 23rd. Anchoring in what was thought to be present-day Charlotte Harbor, things soon went sour with the local inhabitants, the Calusa Indians. These people were to be his undoing. Returning again to the same general vicinity in Florida in 1521, he again had a run in with Calusa Indians and was shot in the thigh with an arrow poisoned with the sap of the Manchineel tree. He returned to Cuba abandoning any hopes of forming a settlement in Florida. Soon after he died of his wounds from the arrow. In his voyages through the keys he discovered an island he named Dry Tortugas. The island was covered with turtles and had no fresh water. Thus the name Dry Tortugas. Ask most anyone who Ponce de Leon was and they will tell you he was an explorer looking for the Fountain of Youth. This is hardly the truth. He was looking for gold and land to claim. These Spanish explorers were brutal people that would run over or kill anyone that stood in their way. He was a man of his time and no matter the reason he was here, he discovered Florida 500 years ago this April 3, and we can credit him with giving it its beautiful name. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By DIANE HIRTH Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Marine-turtle nesting season began in March on Florida beaches from Brevard through Broward counties, although two leatherbacks laying their eggs in late February got a head start. May 1 marks the of cial start in other coastal counties. This year, Floridas nesting sea turtles face speci c challenges because of the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy, which slammed the Atlantic Coast last October, and Tropical Storm Debby, which hit the Gulf Coast in June 2012. The impact of two strong storms last year and the resulting beach renourishment and repairs have altered many Florida beaches where sea turtles nest, said Dr. Robbin Trindell, who is responsible for sea turtle management at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Changes in the coastal landscape, such as a shallower strip of sandy beach or an unnatural pro le, can make it more challenging for sea turtles to successfully lay their eggs and produce hatchlings, she said. Still, we are hoping for a strong sea turtle nesting season, and we ask beachfront property owners and coastal towns and cities to keep nesting beaches free of potential hazards to increase the chance of successful nesting in the wake of such major storms. The FWC reminds beachgoers it is illegal to disturb sea turtles, their nests or hatchlings. The loggerhead is listed as a federally threatened species, and the leatherback and green turtle are federally endangered species. State law restricts beach renourishment and repairs on structures such as seawalls during nesting season, which continues through October. Coastal residents and visitors can help ensure successful nesting of threatened and endangered sea turtles by: Ensuring beach-repair work is completed before nesting turtles arrive; Removing all equipment, beach furniture and other potential obstructions from the beach at night, when nesting females and hatchlings need to move unimpeded across the sand; Managing arti cial light at night by turning off lights when not in use, closing curtains and shades, and shielding lights needed for human safety so no light is visible from the beach.

This regional season will remain open through June 30, with the rst day of the closure being July 1. The season also includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters from shore to 9 nautical miles out off the four counties may not be taken ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding the Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be accessed by smaller boats. The overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties because it is the least densely populated region of Floridas Gulf Coast. The FWC also established this spring season to balance the economic and social needs of the region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Dec. 3. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not be open during the July-through-December season. The season in federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico also opens July 1 and will close when the annual catch target is projected to be met, which is expected to be sometime between Nov. 11 and Dec. 3. Gag grouper caught in state waters outside of the fourcounty region and in federal waters may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties during the federal season or the JulythroughDecember state season. However, boats with gag grouper aboard might not stop in state waters off the four-county region and must have gear stowed while traveling through it to shore. The FWC is working with Floridas anglers to rebuild gag grouper populations in the Gulf of Mexico so they reach strong, sustainable levels. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits are 22 inches total length and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com A Section Page 7 Wednesday, April 3, 2013 By JULIA BULLINGTON Holmes County Chamber of Commerce This years sixth annual Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament was March 8 at the Dogwood Lakes Golf Club. The weather was great, and all the players were in high spirits. A little chill in the air but plenty of sunshine made the course shine even brighter green than normal. Lots of new teams and new faces mixed with our faithful crew of loyal supporters. We had volunteers from First Federal Bank of Florida, Sandy Spear and Celena Medley, who worked with Kim Castriotta from the American Cancer Society to register all the players and make them pull out their checkbooks. Judge Russ Cole and Bill Bullington sat on hole 11 all day waiting on someone to claim that $10,000 hole in one prize. Brenda Blitch and Jennifer Cloud from Doctors Memorial Hospital rounded up all the teams to get their team portraits and sold chances to get on the green. Bettie Slay from Betties Country Realty, Debbie Wells from Wells Law Firm and JoAnn Foxworth from the Fig Tree B & B set up and hauled in and tallied up and everything else under the sun that needed to be done. Chuck and Connie Mason, the owners of Dogwood Lakes Golf Club, can put on one great golf tournament. The course looked great, with two driveways full of carts charged and ready to take off and all the teams sorted as fairly as can be done. Rules were at the ready, prayers were all said and everyone was off to have a great day of fun and fellowship. Then it was back to the clubhouse for a wonderful lunch and all the awards. This years Chamber President Jon Sims, of Sims Signs, wants to thank all those who participated in the tournament and hopes all will join us again next year. Jon wants to send a very special thank you to all of our volunteers and board members who worked so hard and wants everyone to know how much we appreciate our corporate sponsors: Bonifay Nursing and Rehab, Community South Credit Union, Doctors Memorial Hospital, First Federal Bank of Florida, LKQ of West Florida, One South Bank, West Florida Electric Cooperative and of course the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners, the Holmes County Economic Development Commission and the Holmes County Tourist Development Council.

The Rams (13-5) used two suicide squeeze bunts by Andrew Mask and Zach Davis to score three runs in the sixth and move ahead 4-3. Rutherford put the game out of reach with ve runs in the seventh. Davis was 3 for 4 with two RBIs, Nick Nelson doubled and every starter had one of the Rams 11 hits. Mask was the winning pitcher in relief of starter Heath Holmes.

Rutherford defeated schools from larger classications, including handing Land OLakes a rst loss, in winning the tournament. We played a team out of Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville and then the Citrus group, so it was good to see different styles of teams, Rutherford coach Jon Hudson said. They tested us in every way, we had to get bunts down, do hit and runs, play more small ball and I think that really helped us. Walton 2, Port St. Joe 0POR T ST.

By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com BONIFAY Chris Walker will nd himself in unfamiliar en vironments in coming weeks, but he can rest assured he is right where he belongs. Weeks after leading Hol mes County to a Class 1A state championship in boys basket ball, Walker will showcase his talents for the world in a pair of nationally televised games in Chicago and Brooklyn, N.Y. Walker, an explosive 6-foot10 forward, will play for the East in the McDonalds AllAmerican Game today, April 3, in Chicagos United Center (ESPN, 8:30 p.m.). Ten days later, hell suit up for the East in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 13 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (ESPN2, 6 p.m. CDT). The two games are the premier all-star events in the country for high school basketball players. The McDonalds All-Ameri can Game dates back 36 years and throughout its illustrious history has featured luminar ies like Magic Johnson, Mi chael Jordan, LeBron James and countless others who went on to be NBA All-Stars and Hall-of-Famers. The Jor dan Brand Classic has existed for 12 years, and many of the NBAs best players, such as Chris Paul, Kevin Durant and Blake Grifn, appeared in the game and provided the nation an early glimpse into their blossoming talents. It was a dream of mine in middle school, and now Ive got that chance, Walker said. To be in that mix of names is really exciting. Im ready for this and to go out there and compete and have fun. And maybe throw down a dunk or two for the cameras sake? Oh, Im gonna get some dunks, Walker said. Walker will play with fellow Florida commit Kasey Hill in the McDonalds game. East teammates will include other top recruits such as Andrew Wiggins and Noah Vonleh, two players considered among the Top 10 prospects in the coun try. They will compete against a West team featuring Jabari Parker, the Duke recruit re garded by many to be the No. 1 prospect nationally. Walker and Hill teamed together during AAU ball last summer and will pair up in Gainesville next season. But they will be at odds during the Jordan Brand Classic with Hill playing for the West. Ive never played against him, Walker said. Kaseys good, man. Hes like a Derrick Rose. He can shoot, hes fast, hes athletic. Playing with him is easy. Just go up and get easy lobs and passes. Walker, 18, is too young to remember Jordans domi nance of the NBA in the late 1980s and throughout the 90s. Hes a part of a new generation looking up to todays stars, like James and Durant. Michael Jordan is the best player, Walker began. Well, wait. I dont know what to think about that. I mean, LeBron, man. I feel like LeB ron is just getting started. I think LeBrons the best. Hes athletic, he can dribble, hes a passer. Perhaps Jordan can pitch his case if he attends the game in his namesake at the Bar clays Center, the sparklingnew billion-dollar home to the NBAs Brooklyn Nets. Walkers trip to the United Center will take him to the home of three of Jordans six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls. Ive never played in any thing like that, Walker said of the two arenas. Ill just go out there, compete, have fun and just enjoy it. Walker said hes still appre ciating the state champion ship with the Blue Devils. It shows colleges Im a win ner and know what it takes, Walker said. It looks good on a resume, too. If the caliber of talent that has crossed through these two all-star games is any indica tion, Walker wont be lling out one of those any time soon. Sports Prep ROUNDUP Holmes Countys Walker ready to shine on big stage By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCHNBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com The West boys have never scored more than 100 points in the previous eight years of the Halifax All-Star Classic. That information was relayed to East coach Matt Anderson, who is at Graceville and has gained a reputation of instilling tough defense in his teams. Fellow East coach Steve Welch of Malone also prides himself on defense, something he learned while playing at his alma mater when Anderson was an assistant coach. Anderson said the East will look to continue the trend of keeping the West under 100 when the teams convene for the game on Saturday at the Billy Harrison Field House on the campus of Gulf Coast State College. The boys tip off at 1 p.m. The girls open the festivities at 11 a.m. Anderson said there would be only one reason why the West scores 100. If it happens, Ill blame Steve, he joked. The inability to forge beyond the century mark is only one fact associated with the high school showcase. Here are some other facts and gures from the Halifax All-Star Classic, which began in 2005: The East boys lead the series 5-3 with two straight wins. The East has scored 100 or more three times, including a record 114 in a 15-point triumph in 2011. It also scored 102 in 2005 and 100 in 2009. The West girls lead the series 6-2 and have scored 100 or more points twice. The West scored a then-record 112 in a 39-point win in 2009. The 39-point margin remains a record on both sides. The girls series has tightened in the past three years with the average margin of victory three points. No winning team has scored more than 70 in the three-year span, and the East tallied a record-low 53 in 2011. Heather Hingson is the third girls coach on the East from Chipley. It ties the mark with Bay (George Hamilton) and Mosley (Steven Caneld) for most representation by coaches of a school. However, Chipley holds the distinction of sending three different coaches to the Halifax Classic, with Rickey McCullough in the inaugural game and Tracey Dudley in 2009. Anderson and Welch are making second appearances as coaches. Anderson represented Bay in 2005, and Welch coached last year. They are tied with Mariannas Travis Blanton and Port St. Joes Derek Kurnitsky for most coaching appearances on the boys side. Of the 22 schools comprising the East player pool from The News Heralds coverage area excluding a 23rd in North Bay Haven, which doesnt have a senior class until the fall there hasnt been a boys player chosen from Liberty County, Poplar Springs or Sneads. There has yet to be a girl chosen from Altha, Blountstown, Franklin County or Vernon. Ponce de Leon leads all girls selections with 15, including two this year. Mosley had 13 picks and Graceville 10. Bay, Chipley, Marianna and Rutherford are tied for the top with 11 selections in the boys game, while Port St. Joe is second with 10. There have been ve sweeps. The West swept the games in 2006, 08 and 10. The East secured two wins in the same year in 07 and 12. Rutherfords Jon Wade set the boys and overall scoring record with 30 points for the East in last years 96-76 triumph. It eclipsed the 28 points Lori Fletcher scored for the West in 2009. That gure remains the girls record. Chipleys Nikki Jackson holds the East girls mark with 26 points set in 2005. Three East boys, Wade, Carter Grubbs and Karlos Franklin, have scored 20 or more points. Five East girls, Jackson, Geami Britt, Shari Steele, Tanesha Middleton and Erika Johnson, have put up at least 20 points.A N D REW JOHNSON | News Herald

B OSTON CELEBRATES 12TH B IRTHDAY Fourteen robots and their student inventors gathered in Marianna March 21 to compete in the sixth annual robotics contest sponsored by the Chipola Regional Workforce Development Board and Opportunity Florida. The contest challenged teams of students to design, build and operate a robot to outscore their opponents in head to head completion. Tech No Bot from Holmes County High School defeated Wolverines from Chipley High School 65-10 in the nal round to take the championship. Cottondale Highs Avengers defeated the Bulldogs 50-45 of Liberty County to capture third place. Students were challenged to design and build a robot that could move various size balls into scoring areas as well as lift balls into a scoring tube. Teams played four round robin matches that determined the seeding in a single elimination tournament. Tech No Logic also took first place in the Log Book competition as well as the Top Gun Award for scoring the most points in a single match. In the Log Book competition teams submitted logbooks that were graded and then the top teams were also interviewed by judges to determine the final rankings. The contest was started by the CRWDB and Opportunity Florida to give area educators an extra tool to use as they help youth learn how to think critically, problem solve and work as a team. Richard Williams, Executive Director of the CRWDB, said the contest is a fun way for students to expand their classroom knowledge. This contest gives students a chance to put lessons learned in the classroom to use in a way that offers them many challenges they have to overcome, Williams said. It is amazing to see teams between rounds working on their robots and actually applying skills necessary to do well in any occupation that requires knowledge in math, science, technology and engineering.

I am not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping, while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this, but every once in a while Ill think of the right word, and then that word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of something else altogether, and pretty soon Im off on one of my little mind trips. One thing about these little mind trips of mine: They do not cost very much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I was thoroughly enjoying my trip, and then I began to hear in the background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the little trip I was on at the time. Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You... Listening... To... What... Im... Saying? At rst, they did not seem connected, and to be truthful, it rather upset me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. For some reason I happened to glance over to my right and was shocked to discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the passenger seat. At rst, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she was looking back at me! I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, What are you doing in my car? She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind trip. Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in life should be just that. A mystery. One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately I have had Easter on my mind. I know the word Easter, is not a very politically correct word today. But then I am not running for of ce; in fact, I am running away from politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in everything we do. Those people who object to the word Easter, I wonder if they really know where it came from. To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation. Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church of the Easter Egg Hunt? It has become a popular thing not to tolerate religion in our country. Well, let me correct that. We tolerate all religions except Christianity. It is too bad the people who cannot tolerate Christianity are unable to read. I think it is sad this generation is not able to read anymore, because if they were, they might read some of the history of this country and discover it was founded on Christian principles. Imagine that! I can understand why people are confused about Easter with the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg. Most are confused about how the Easter Bunny can lay Easter Eggs. They are only familiar with Bugs Bunny and everybody knows he cannot lay an egg. So, where do these mysterious Easter Eggs come from? Laying all that nonsense aside, and that is all it is, Easter has some very wonderful memories for me. Say what they will, nothing they say can undermine the wonderful thoughts I have about Easter. I like what the apostle Paul says, For I delivered unto you rst of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). The songwriter was right when he said, Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Senator seeks money to investigate reform school TALLAHASSEE (AP) U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said on March 27 that hes pursuing funding from a $3 million federal grant program to help identify buried remains at a defunct boys reform school in the Florida Panhandle. The grant money is meant for exhuming bodies and identifying them through DNA, the Democratic senator told reporters. Nelson said he was contacted by a brother of a boy who died at the former Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna. The senator said he knew the school well as a boy because his family would pass it as they drove to see relatives in the Panhandle. It was kind of known, You dont want to be sent to the boys reform school, he said. Former students have alleged that physical and sexual abuse and even wrongful deaths occurred at the school. It opened in 1900 and closed in 2011. A building known as the White House was notorious for beatings.

Corbin was instructed by the board to meet with the Leisure Lakes Property Owners Association to discuss providing animal control services to the private community. Calls for assistance have come from the Greenhead community, but Corbin said the county has only responded to calls in gated communities in cases of dangerous animal reports. We have no jurisdiction at Leisure Lakes except in emergency cases as de ned by state statute, Corbin said. I dont know if they want us to start handling all calls, or just on a case-by-case basis. Corbin said the association recently adopted the countys policy for animal control. We could get pretty deep in if we start trying to handle all their calls, Corbin added. It would be a good idea for David and the county to sit down and discuss with the property owners association what services they are seeking, said County Attorney Jeff Goodman. Goodman said he thought the county should consider contracting those services and set a fee to cover the expenses involved in animal control. Corbin said it cost the county more than $38 per animal the county drops off at the shelter.

This would result in added responsibilities for our current staff. Costs are on the rise, and with the warm weather, were going to see more animals than we can handle, Corbin said. Whether we do this for free or at a cost, I would like to see the county have some kind a agreement in writing, Goodman added. I strongly suggest that if we do anything, we have a contract and we charge for it, said Commissioner Joel Pate. If law enforcement is called out for a dangerous dog, then he has to go by law, Commissioner Charles Brock said of the county animal control of cer. Ive been when peoples faces have been ripped, and Ive seen deep lacerations on their arms from bites, Corbin said. In the case of pursuing a dangerous animal, we are also allowed to go onto private property. Chairman Alan Bush asked Corbin to meet with the Leisure Lakes Property Owners Association then bring back the results of that meeting to the boards next workshop. In other business, the board approved a request for an easement for Mark Pate of Chipley, who upon having his property resurveyed for the bank, discovered that his pole barn sits on the county drainage ditch right-of-way. The bank needs an easement, and I feel horrible for Mr. Pate, Goodman said. But as a lawyer, I always think about the divorce and not the marriage. What scares me is the next property owner who is going to want a variance. The board approved the request with a 3-2 vote. Bush and Commissioner Lynn Gothard voted against the easement, while Brock, Pate and Commissioner Todd Abbott voted in favor of the request. Taking into consideration what the attorney has said, I think we need to look at these things on a case-by-case basis, Abbott said. This easement will take our right-of-way down to 32 feet, but our maintenance supervisor says that will not be an issue. Also this is a drainage ditch, its not like we are giving him usable land. ANIMAL CONTROL from page A1dont cost an arm and a leg to do, Sweeney said. As the Park Manager of Falling Waters State Park, Sweeney is familiar with geocaching the state park already has three geocaching sites located within its boundaries. Sweeney said last week there was a family from Indiana geocaching at Falling Waters State Park. In fact, the waterfall at the park is featured on the website, earthcache.org, Sweeney added. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices, according to the website, geocaching.com. Participants navigate to a speci c set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to nd a hidden container called a geocache at that location. Once the geocache is found, the seeker signs a logbook showing that the site was located. The containers also sometimes contain prizes, but geocachers are asked to replace what they take with a similarly suitable prize. The geocaching website suggests travel and tourism professionals create a GeoTour of their region. Its easy to put your destination on the map for millions to discover, according to geocaching.com. You already have the raw materials. You know the friendly neighbors, the best places to eat, and that one special spot that people should never miss on their visit. The question is: how do you entice the travelers and tourists of the world to discover your destination? Sweeney said geocaches can be located anywhere places of historical interest, places of beauty, or even at events, such as the Watermelon Festival. Washington County is a great place to geocache, Sweeney said. He said that if there were 100 geocache sites in the county, then the TDC could award something like a lapel pin to seekers who nd a certain percentage of the sites. We can get pins for just pennies, and we can ask for $2 or $3 for them in return. People are already geocaching in Washington County, but if the TDC were to develop a GeoTour, that could drive searchers to speci c places, such as Hard Labor Creek or the Washington County Historical Museum. We could have a list of sites, then have our booth at the Watermelon Festival be the last stop, Council member Ted Everett said. A GeoTour lets our community of millions know youre open for business with a story to tell, interesting locations, and family-friendly activities, according to the geocaching website. These unique tours bring locations to life through a series of engaging geocaches placed within a speci c area or along a route. The geocaching community is ve million strong and growing, according to geocaching.com. Armed with smartphones or dedicated GPS devices, geocachers are always searching for their next nd. The impact of GeoTour is completely measureable, according to the website. Monitoring allows for tracking the number of Passports and Geocoins deployed and the number of geocaching logs entered by visitors on Geocaching.com. Why dont you spearhead this? Everett asked Sweeney. Lets try and do something with the Watermelon Festival. I think this can really have a positive impact, Sweeney said. There are so many neat things to do in Washington County, people are going to say, why didnt we come here sooner? GEOCACHING from page A1said Rockburn. We have held 174 classes this year and have helped 215 clients in one way or another and weve got a hard ght before us as weve approached the 40th anniversary since abortion was legalized. Weve lost over 55 million babies to abortion during this time, 1.2 to 1.4 million babies are aborted every year in the United States and in our state alone we lose 224 babies a day to the 69 abortion clinics we have. Rockburn said it is because of these statistics that it is up to local organizations such as the West Florida Baptist Association to provide free services so young people dont feel forced to abort because of rejection or lack of assistance.

The states unemployment rate dropped from 7.9 percent in December 2012 to 7.8 percent in January 2013 a decrease of 0.1 percentage points over-the-month. Accelerating job growth con rms that Floridas labor market is improving heading into 2013. Florida employers added 15,400 non-agricultural jobs during the month a solid payroll employment change when compared to previous months. The number of unemployed individuals decreased by 5,000 over-themonth, bringing the number of unemployed Floridians to 740,000. Both employment gains and a reduction in the number of unemployed Floridians contributed to the falling jobless rate. Although this indicates the labor market is recovering, the pace of recovery still remains gradual in nature. New housing permits increased by 22 percent from December 2012 to January 2013, indicating that the housing recovery remains intact despite fears regarding sequestration and a higher payroll tax rate. While new housing permits are typically volatile from month-to-month, the overall trend for Floridas housing market is positive. The increasing activity in housing bodes well for Floridas economic recovery, as nearly 50 percent of the states employment loss since the Great Recession directly results from the contraction in the construction industry. Additional building permits suggest that we should expect more home construction in the months ahead. As home prices increase across the state, we expect overall economic activity to grow as a result of new home construction and increased consumer spending. During the month of March, Floridas consumer con dence index increased slightly to 74 from a reading of 73 in the month of February. Consumer con dence takes into account residents nancial situations and outlook for the economy. The long-run trend in consumer con dence has been positive since the time series bottomed out in mid-2008. Despite the gains in consumer con dence, the index is still below the pre-recession levels which typically ranged from 80 to 95. As consumption expenditures account for the majority of gross domestic product (the total value of all nal goods and services produced by labor and capital within a geographic region), consumer sentiment and expectations are key metrics for monitoring overall economic activity. The recent rally in U.S. equities prices has gained attention in recent weeks, and is an encouraging sign for the economic outlook. Although we expect that much of the run-up in stock prices is because of the Federal Reserves policy of quantitative easing, investors appear to be increasing purchases as a result of stronger U.S. economic data in recent months. In February 2013, employers added 236,000 new jobs as the unemployment rate ticked down to 7.7 percent from 7.9 percent in the month of January. This report was above expectations, and suggests continued recovery of the national economy. Despite positive economic data, future growth will largely depend on the trajectory of Federal Reserve policy as well as risks from the global economy. The Federal Reserve appears to be continuing their asset purchases, known as quantitative easing, until they see strong evidence of a signi cant improvement in the labor market outlook.

Through the years Ive heard many comments about the beauty of Bonifays cemetery. At this time of year when the azaleas are in full bloom, it is especially pretty. Located on the northwest side of the town on a rolling hill, the view from all directions is refreshing. Looking north, a stand of native red buds bright pink blooms delight the eye. To the south a tiered planting separates the cemetery proper from the surrounding woodlands. On the west side bright shades of hot pink azaleas delineate the white and black portions of the burial grounds, harking back to yesteryear when strict separation of the races was the law of the land. The cemetery was designated when the city was chartered and the streets laid out by Mr. Ban l, although he is not buried there himself. His grave is off Ban l Avenue just west of the old L&N Train Depot location. Many folks give Bonifay Garden Club credit for the ne condition of the cemetery, but it is actually cared for by the city of Bonifay under the direction of a committee appointed by the city council. However, the beauti cation projects which account for the beauty of the place is the protg of the Garden Club. The late Mrs. Brooks (Marie Armstrong) Padgett is credited with starting the on-going project to beautify and keep up the citys burial grounds. Her mother, Mrs. Susan Armstrong, had taken a personal interest in the cemetery. Since the early 1950s the committee that was formed under Mrs. Padgetts leadership always includes at least one Garden Club member. In cooperation with the city council and a crew paid by the city the place has been kept beautiful with the help of donations from the families whose loved ones are buried there. Others I can recall who have been involved in the improvement and upkeep of the cemetery are Mrs. Harvey (Palmer) Spears, Mrs. Ben (Mary Wilcox) Swindle, Mrs. R.H. (Sarah Green) Segrest, Mrs. George (Ann) Howell, Mrs. Alex (Mozell Miller) Shepherd, Mrs. Clifford (Annie Lee Brock) Williams, Mrs. Ernest Cox, Mrs. Parker Grant, Mrs. Pat (Marion Creel) Kelly, Mr. and Mrs. Maston (Eula Lee Ross) Barden and too many others to name, most of them deceased. The current committee is composed of Mrs. Wilheminia (Wilcox) Belser, Mrs. Tom (Vonzie Brooks) Jenkins, Mrs. Willard (Joan Hand) Steverson, Mrs. Tom (Velma Jenkins) Stubbs, Mrs. Ed(Susan Treadwell) Pittman, Mr. Kenneth Yates, and City Councilman Roger Brooks make up the committee. Mrs. J.W. (Edna Bellot) McDonald is an immediate past member. They have recently purchased and installed new gates at the entrance to the cemetery, which is on the east side. The stone enclosure with decorative iron gates featuring 5 ag standards guard the east entrance. James Sellers was instrumental in nding a source for the metal gates and the decorative stone. Roger Brooks located the ags. Through the years the driveway has been lined with crepe myrtle. Beds of knockout roses and white decorative panels separate the entry and exit lanes. A carrollian tower marks the skyline to the northeast. It has recently been refurbished with paint and a new metal roof, a project of Mr. Yates. When I was teaching 8th grade at Bonifay Middle School, visiting the nearby city cemetery was an end-of the year activity. It is just the right distance to the school to make the walk there and back within a period of class time. At rst the students thought it a little weird to visit a cemetery, but then they really got into it. They were assigned to nd an epitaph or two or look for Civil War veterans, or other veterans. Some asked about the circumstances of the death of a brother and sister who died on the same day. I was able to give them sketchy details of the drowning that occurred in Pate Pond of a Miller brother and sister. Visiting the cemetery turned out to be a really good activity as much history is contained there. Today, it is still a beautiful and serene place to visit even if you dont have family there. You are also urged to make a donation to the cemetery fund, especially if Its the burial place of family members. Tax deductible donations may be sent to the City of Bonifay Cemetery Fund or given to any committee member. The News is published every Wednesday and Saturday by Halifax Media Group, 1364 N.

Nicole P. Bare eld, Publisher Randal Seyler, Editor Cameron Everett, Production SupervisorWounded warrior gives thanksDear Editor, On February 22, I was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It was a happy day. I had been at Walter Reed since July 6, 2012. during that time, I received hundreds of cards from people across the Panhandle, and I have been the bene ciary of the prayers of thousands more. I hope you will allow me to express my gratitude and to say thank you through this letter. Walter Reed is a wondrous place albeit for horrible reasons. The doctors, nurses and therapists there are the very best. Moreover, the many non-pro t organizations who are dedicated to our wounded warriors insure that whatever our soldiers need is provided. God bless them all. I am currently assigned to the Community Based Warrior Transition Unit in Orlando. I will be living in Panama City until my medical board review. It is good to nally be home.Sincerely, Carter HessSgt. U.S. Army Panama City In the rst Perrys Prattler for March, your writer reached back into February for a story he had planned to write. As April arrives, the impression is to again look back to the preceding month for a column topic. Etched in my mind is the fact that my grandmother, Hannah Malinda Brock Wells, was born on March 2, 1878 in Washington County. She died May 9, 1960. She and my grandfather, James Thomas Wells, are buried at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery. The Prattler does not remember not having the paternal grandparents closely associated, and an active in uence in the events and affairs of our own household. Our daddy, Hugh Thomas Wells, was their youngest of four sons, and the only one who, upon marrying, remained on the farm. He merely moved up the hill from his parents and continued farming. This relationship never changed as the grandparents, and our parents, made this location their home throughout their entire lifetime. My grandmother made this statement each year as her birthday arrived: Well, if I can just make it through March, I can make it the rest of the year. This worked well for her until she reached age 82 in March of 1960 and died in June of that year. As the report goes, she simply lay down for an afternoon nap while in the home of her daughter, Virginia (Jenny) Wells Hinson and husband, James Arthur Hinson and never woke up. Grandma Wells was an in uential and helpful person in her neighborhood. In todays modern terminology, she would have been labeled a survivor. She knew how to skimp and save, but she did so in order to administer assistance to others that she knew to be in need. I am not sure that gs, nor g preserves, have been proven to possess any medicinal qualities, but the old timers in my early life seemed to believe that they did. Hannah Wells harvested every g from the proli c trees that were nourished and protected on the old home place for many years. Sometime the fruit was cooked to a preserve state in the family wash pot. Most of the time, the product was sweetened with home made sugar cane syrup as granulated, store bought white sugar, was a scarce commodity in most all farm households. These treasured gs were kept in the proper temperature to assure freshness throughout the year. When a neighbor came to her door, advising: Cousin Hannah, I have a very sick child and he is begging for gazerves! Can you help me? The answer was always yes without hesitation and no demand for payment or promise to repay in kind for the item as a later date. My grandmother was always good for one or more bantam fryers from her ock that ran the range of the home place. She shared these chickens for frying or stewing hens for baking dressing, especially when there was a sick person in the community who needed special food. I have read that chicken soup de nitely has healing qualities for those with certain maladies. This lady claimed the gift of treating thrush in children. One theory that this ability is limited to those ladies whose fathers died prior to their birth. This did not apply to my grandmother as she de nitely lived many years along with her father, Thomas Jefferson Brock. The ritual of treating thrush had to be done in secret, according to legend. Hannah Wells simply took the child by the hand, stepped outside her kitchen door in the dark and did whatever she had been taught to do and soon returned inside. As I recall, her treatments were always effective. A few weeks ago, the topic of Aurora Borealis (Great Northern Lights) was mentioned. This phenomenon was observed by our family in the early 1940s. Our grandparents joined in the trek of a host of people who were walking northward thinking we would come to the source of the lights within a short distance. I wrote of telling Kim Osborne of this story recently when she, and others, were here on a genealogy search. She was happy to know that the great grandmother she never knew, Laura Nelson Ellis, joined in that momentous walk. At the Farm Bureau Spaghetti Supper, held in February, Leola Craven Brock, came to our table to tell of her enjoyment of the story. She related the experience of her parents, Bill Craven and Bobby Tobias Craven, taking all the children on a northward drive from their Poplar Head Community home in the early 1970s after seeing the mysterious lights. She reports they expected to see the source of the light once reaching Highway 280. The group turned back after peaking the hill near the Jim Clemmons home, without learning the source of the lights. On March 25, an email came to the News Of ce, addressed to the Prattler from a Vernon native. He told of his familys experience of seeing the lights from their Vernon home, also in the 1940s. The writer was Bayllye Gwynne May, now living in Orlando, the son of Delbert May and Helen Dalton May, both from prominent Vernon pioneer families. May, a retired U.S. Navy man, reports crossing the arctic circle in Alaska, Norway and Finland and traveled the seven continents and was able to tell his comrades in those foreign lands that he had seen the Great Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) from my Vernon, Florida home on Roache Avenue (formerly Broad Street), across the open lot south of the building that Curt Roach operated an oyster bar and pool hall and where Marvin and Vera Owens ran a grocery store. Later, Irvin Roche opened the Vernon Theater on this space and operated it for many years. History seems to run full circle and I am happy to have covered a portion of it today.

Woodham said he was looking forward to another two years and hoped to keep up the momentum as city projects continue on. I look forward to continue serving the residents of Bonifay to the best of my ability, Brooks said. Mayor Lawrence Cloud appointed Micah McCormick to be vice mayor once again. Jim Hall was announced to be the citys code enforcement of cer. Police Chief Chris Wells said Hall was well-experienced of cer, who is currently in employment to take on the additional task in code enforcement. There is going to be a little expense at rst as we print off citations, Wells said. City Clerk Jeri Gibson requested an update on renaming Eastside Park in honor of Etta Mae White Hudson. Cloud said they were looking to the family for a tting name for the park, such as Etta Hudson Memorial Park or Etta White Hudson Park. The next meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 8 at the Bonifay City Hall.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Panama City Beach Mayor Gayle Oberst paid a visit to the Bonifay Kiwanis Club as a guest speaker at their March 27 meeting. With the road becoming a four-lane, their driveway essentially will be our driveway and with only 45 miles and two red lights separating us, were practically becoming neighbors, said Roger Brooks, program coordinator for Bonifay Kiwanis Club. Oberst agreed with Brooks, saying that a large majority of their visitors come through Bonifay and the expansion and improvements in Panama City Beach also affected the Bonifay area as well because of the four-lane expansion project to State Road 79. The new airport is doing well, and we may be getting another low-cost carrier with Delta, Oberst said. Our address is Panama City Beach, not just Panama City. Pier Park was nished in 2008, and they do have a Pier Park West, and they are planning on selling that. She said there was groundbreaking ceremony held just north of that property where they expect another shopping center to be erected and will include stores such as Dicks Sporting Goods, Rooms to Go, Logans Steakhouse, Chilis and a Fresh Market or World Market. Weve opened yet another Super Walmart, but it is not replacing the other Walmart (it is in addition to), as well as a new Shoneys at Pier Park; and that means thousands of new jobs for this area, Oberst said. Aaron Bessant Park is a beautiful park located next to Pier Park and through the Tourist Development Council and the bene ts from BP due to the Oil Spill we were able to redo that area. The new stage is big enough for some professional acts to come in. She said on April 5 there would be a performance held there by the Panama City Pop Orchestra then later on there would be a jazz festival and performances by Martin Theater. Were trying to bring some culture to the beach, she said. Were adding 58 more bathrooms to Pier Park, and when I mentioned this while waiting in line to the womens restroom and got a standing ovation. Oberst said there would also be an upcoming festival sight, which will be parking during events and three soccer elds when it wasnt in use. Theres a 3,000-acre conservation park with nature trails and boardwalks free to the public that came from efforts with every environmental conservation agency in Florida to stop putting reused water into the Bay, she said. Weve used Department of Transportation grants to pave nine miles outside the parks. Were transforming Front Beach Road to include a mass transient lane and underground utilities. Theyve completed three streets and one section of Front Beach Road, according to Oberst. Weve completed the place in front of Pineapple Willies, she said. It is beautiful with places to walk and sit and wander it leisure. This is an exciting development for our area. She also thanked Bonifay for being an area that helps traf c arrive in Panama City Beach. Since youre helping us get traf c to us weve had over 200,000 visit our area last weekend alone, Oberst said. Things are going very well for Spring Break, weve only had one casualty who drank himself to death. Weve increased our protection efforts, theres more security, and theyre more strict. She said that Back Beach Road has been enabled with ber optics at all the lights to help alleviate congestion. Theres a room with a wall of televisions featuring every light on Back Beach Road, she said. Theyre constantly being monitored, and those lights can be tripped if they need to alleviate congestion. Were also six-laning more of Back Beach Road, which increased traf c capacity by 25 percent. Oberst also said that Panama City Beach is growing fast. Weve almost doubled our population since the last census, she said. For the rst time Bay County and Panama City Beach got together to make our ordinances the same and developed a mutual aide agreement, which allows arrests to expand into each of our areas and increases our security. She said that Bed Tax is now at 5 cents to the dollar and managed by the Tourist Development Council, a Bay County Agency, to renourish the beach and market to outside areas that they are a fun, family beach. The TDC did a great job with the oil spill, Oberst said. We talked about no oil on the beach and that people could keep coming out to a safe clean beach when the scare was at its highest. She said that things are looking very well for Panama City Beach. The economy is looking good for us, she said. Now if only we could get the national economy under control.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 3, 2013 Page 6www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection If you had been standing on the eastern shore of present-day Florida around St. Augustine on March 3, 1513, you would have witnessed three sailing ships bringing men ashore: The Santiago, the San Cristobal and the Santa Maria de Consolacion. On one of these ships was the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, the rst European ever to set foot on Florida soil. Thinking he had discovered an island, he named it La Florida in recognition of the verdant landscape and because it was the Easter season, which the Spaniards called Pascua Florida (Festival of Flowers). The precise location of this landing has been in dispute for many years. Some historians believe it was around St Augustine. Others believe it was farther south near a small harbor today called Ponce de Leon Inlet. After remaining ashore for about ve days they turned south for further exploration. On the way south they encountered a strong current that was later named the Gulf Stream. They sailed south and eventually crossed through the Keys and headed back north reaching the mainland around May 23rd. Anchoring in what was thought to be present-day Charlotte Harbor, things soon went sour with the local inhabitants, the Calusa Indians. These people were to be his undoing. Returning again to the same general vicinity in Florida in 1521, he again had a run in with Calusa Indians and was shot in the thigh with an arrow poisoned with the sap of the Manchineel tree. He returned to Cuba abandoning any hopes of forming a settlement in Florida. Soon after he died of his wounds from the arrow. In his voyages through the keys he discovered an island he named Dry Tortugas. The island was covered with turtles and had no fresh water. Thus the name Dry Tortugas. Ask most anyone who Ponce de Leon was and they will tell you he was an explorer looking for the Fountain of Youth. This is hardly the truth. He was looking for gold and land to claim. These Spanish explorers were brutal people that would run over or kill anyone that stood in their way. He was a man of his time and no matter the reason he was here, he discovered Florida 500 years ago this April 3, and we can credit him with giving it its beautiful name. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netBy DIANE HIRTHFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Marine-turtle nesting season began in March on Florida beaches from Brevard through Broward counties, although two leatherbacks laying their eggs in late February got a head start. May 1 marks the of cial start in other coastal counties. This year, Floridas nesting sea turtles face speci c challenges because of the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy, which slammed the Atlantic Coast last October, and Tropical Storm Debby, which hit the Gulf Coast in June 2012. The impact of two strong storms last year and the resulting beach renourishment and repairs have altered many Florida beaches where sea turtles nest, said Dr. Robbin Trindell, who is responsible for sea turtle management at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Changes in the coastal landscape, such as a shallower strip of sandy beach or an unnatural pro le, can make it more challenging for sea turtles to successfully lay their eggs and produce hatchlings, she said. Still, we are hoping for a strong sea turtle nesting season, and we ask beachfront property owners and coastal towns and cities to keep nesting beaches free of potential hazards to increase the chance of successful nesting in the wake of such major storms. The FWC reminds beachgoers it is illegal to disturb sea turtles, their nests or hatchlings. The loggerhead is listed as a federally threatened species, and the leatherback and green turtle are federally endangered species. State law restricts beach renourishment and repairs on structures such as seawalls during nesting season, which continues through October. Coastal residents and visitors can help ensure successful nesting of threatened and endangered sea turtles by: Ensuring beach-repair work is completed before nesting turtles arrive; Removing all equipment, beach furniture and other potential obstructions from the beach at night, when nesting females and hatchlings need to move unimpeded across the sand; Managing arti cial light at night by turning off lights when not in use, closing curtains and shades, and shielding lights needed for human safety so no light is visible from the beach.NESTING SEASON Leatherback hatchlingloggerhead hatchling After remaining ashore for about ve days they turned south for further exploration. eventually crossed through north reaching the mainland local inhabitants, the Calusa Indians.

This regional season will remain open through June 30, with the rst day of the closure being July 1. The season also includes all waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters from shore to 9 nautical miles out off the four counties may not be taken ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding the Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be accessed by smaller boats. The overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties because it is the least densely populated region of Floridas Gulf Coast. The FWC also established this spring season to balance the economic and social needs of the region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Dec. 3. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not be open during the July-through-December season. The season in federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico also opens July 1 and will close when the annual catch target is projected to be met, which is expected to be sometime between Nov. 11 and Dec. 3. Gag grouper caught in state waters outside of the fourcounty region and in federal waters may be taken ashore in Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties during the federal season or the JulythroughDecember state season. However, boats with gag grouper aboard might not stop in state waters off the four-county region and must have gear stowed while traveling through it to shore. The FWC is working with Floridas anglers to rebuild gag grouper populations in the Gulf of Mexico so they reach strong, sustainable levels. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits are 22 inches total length and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com ASection Page 7 Wednesday, April 3, 2013 By JULIA BULLINGTON Holmes County Chamber of Commerce This years sixth annual Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament was March 8 at the Dogwood Lakes Golf Club. The weather was great, and all the players were in high spirits. A little chill in the air but plenty of sunshine made the course shine even brighter green than normal. Lots of new teams and new faces mixed with our faithful crew of loyal supporters. We had volunteers from First Federal Bank of Florida, Sandy Spear and Celena Medley, who worked with Kim Castriotta from the American Cancer Society to register all the players and make them pull out their checkbooks. Judge Russ Cole and Bill Bullington sat on hole 11 all day waiting on someone to claim that $10,000 hole in one prize. Brenda Blitch and Jennifer Cloud from Doctors Memorial Hospital rounded up all the teams to get their team portraits and sold chances to get on the green. Bettie Slay from Betties Country Realty, Debbie Wells from Wells Law Firm and JoAnn Foxworth from the Fig Tree B & B set up and hauled in and tallied up and everything else under the sun that needed to be done. Chuck and Connie Mason, the owners of Dogwood Lakes Golf Club, can put on one great golf tournament. The course looked great, with two driveways full of carts charged and ready to take off and all the teams sorted as fairly as can be done. Rules were at the ready, prayers were all said and everyone was off to have a great day of fun and fellowship. Then it was back to the clubhouse for a wonderful lunch and all the awards. This years Chamber President Jon Sims, of Sims Signs, wants to thank all those who participated in the tournament and hopes all will join us again next year. Jon wants to send a very special thank you to all of our volunteers and board members who worked so hard and wants everyone to know how much we appreciate our corporate sponsors: Bonifay Nursing and Rehab, Community South Credit Union, Doctors Memorial Hospital, First Federal Bank of Florida, LKQ of West Florida, One South Bank, West Florida Electric Cooperative and of course the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners, the Holmes County Economic Development Commission and the Holmes County Tourist Development Council.

The Rams (13-5) used two suicide squeeze bunts by Andrew Mask and Zach Davis to score three runs in the sixth and move ahead 4-3. Rutherford put the game out of reach with ve runs in the seventh. Davis was 3 for 4 with two RBIs, Nick Nelson doubled and every starter had one of the Rams 11 hits. Mask was the winning pitcher in relief of starter Heath Holmes. Mask held Citrus hitless and had four strikeouts and one walk in 2 2/3 innings. Holmes gave up four hits and three runs, two earned, all coming in the fth inning to give Citrus a 3-1 lead. Rutherford defeated schools from larger classications, including handing Land OLakes a rst loss, in winning the tournament. We played a team out of Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville and then the Citrus group, so it was good to see different styles of teams, Rutherford coach Jon Hudson said.

By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.comBONIFAY B ONIFAY Chris Walker will nd himself in unfamiliar environments in coming weeks, but he can rest assured he is right where he belongs. Weeks after leading Holmes County to a Class 1A state championship in boys basketball, Walker will showcase his talents for the world in a pair of nationally televised games in Chicago and Brooklyn, N.Y. Walker, an explosive 6-foot10 forward, will play for the East in the McDonalds AllAmerican Game today, April 3, in Chicagos United Center (ESPN, 8:30 p.m.). Ten days later, hell suit up for the East in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 13 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (ESPN2, 6 p.m. CDT). The two games are the premier all-star events in the country for high school basketball players. The McDonalds All-American Game dates back 36 years and throughout its illustrious history has featured luminaries like Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, LeBron James and countless others who went on to be NBA All-Stars and Hall-of-Famers. The Jordan Brand Classic has existed for 12 years, and many of the NBAs best players, such as Chris Paul, Kevin Durant and Blake Grifn, appeared in the game and provided the nation an early glimpse into their blossoming talents. It was a dream of mine in middle school, and now Ive got that chance, Walker said. To be in that mix of names is really exciting. Im ready for this and to go out there and compete and have fun. And maybe throw down a dunk or two for the cameras sake? Oh, Im gonna get some dunks, Walker said. Walker will play with fellow Florida commit Kasey Hill in the McDonalds game. East teammates will include other top recruits such as Andrew Wiggins and Noah Vonleh, two players considered among the Top 10 prospects in the country. They will compete against a West team featuring Jabari Parker, the Duke recruit regarded by many to be the No. 1 prospect nationally. Walker and Hill teamed together during AAU ball last summer and will pair up in Gainesville next season. But they will be at odds during the Jordan Brand Classic with Hill playing for the West. Ive never played against him, Walker said. Kaseys good, man. Hes like a Derrick Rose. He can shoot, hes fast, hes athletic. Playing with him is easy. Just go up and get easy lobs and passes. Walker, 18, is too young to remember Jordans dominance of the NBA in the late 1980s and throughout the 90s. Hes a part of a new generation looking up to todays stars, like James and Durant. Michael Jordan is the best player, Walker began. Well, wait. I dont know what to think about that. I mean, LeBron, man. I feel like LeBron is just getting started. I think LeBrons the best. Hes athletic, he can dribble, hes a passer. Perhaps Jordan can pitch his case if he attends the game in his namesake at the Barclays Center, the sparklingnew billion-dollar home to the NBAs Brooklyn Nets. Walkers trip to the United Center will take him to the home of three of Jordans six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls. Ive never played in anything like that, Walker said of the two arenas. Ill just go out there, compete, have fun and just enjoy it. Walker said hes still appreciating the state championship with the Blue Devils. It shows colleges Im a winner and know what it takes, Walker said. It looks good on a resume, too. If the caliber of talent that has crossed through these two all-star games is any indication, Walker wont be lling out one of those any time soon. Sports Prep ROUNROUNDUUP Holmes Countys Walker ready to shine on big stageBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCHNBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com The West boys have never scored more than 100 points in the previous eight years of the Halifax All-Star Classic. That information was relayed to East coach Matt Anderson, who is at Graceville and has gained a reputation of instilling tough defense in his teams. Fellow East coach Steve Welch of Malone also prides himself on defense, something he learned while playing at his alma mater when Anderson was an assistant coach. Anderson said the East will look to continue the trend of keeping the West under 100 when the teams convene for the game on Saturday at the Billy Harrison Field House on the campus of Gulf Coast State College. The boys tip off at 1 p.m. The girls open the festivities at 11 a.m. Anderson said there would be only one reason why the West scores 100. If it happens, Ill blame Steve, he joked. The inability to forge beyond the century mark is only one fact associated with the high school showcase. Here are some other facts and gures from the Halifax All-Star Classic, which began in 2005: The East boys lead the series 5-3 with two straight wins. The East has scored 100 or more three times, including a record 114 in a 15-point triumph in 2011. It also scored 102 in 2005 and 100 in 2009. The West girls lead the series 6-2 and have scored 100 or more points twice. The West scored a then-record 112 in a 39-point win in 2009. The 39-point margin remains a record on both sides. The girls series has tightened in the past three years with the average margin of victory three points. No winning team has scored more than 70 in the three-year span, and the East tallied a record-low 53 in 2011. Heather Hingson is the third girls coach on the East from Chipley. It ties the mark with Bay (George Hamilton) and Mosley (Steven Caneld) for most representation by coaches of a school. However, Chipley holds the distinction of sending three different coaches to the Halifax Classic, with Rickey McCullough in the inaugural game and Tracey Dudley in 2009. Anderson and Welch are making second appearances as coaches. Anderson represented Bay in 2005, and Welch coached last year. They are tied with Mariannas Travis Blanton and Port St. Joes Derek Kurnitsky for most coaching appearances on the boys side. Of the 22 schools comprising the East player pool from The News Heralds coverage area excluding a 23rd in North Bay Haven, which doesnt have a senior class until the fall there hasnt been a boys player chosen from Liberty County, Poplar Springs or Sneads. There has yet to be a girl chosen from Altha, Blountstown, Franklin County or Vernon. Ponce de Leon leads all girls selections with 15, including two this year. Mosley had 13 picks and Graceville 10. Bay, Chipley, Marianna and Rutherford are tied for the top with 11 selections in the boys game, while Port St. Joe is second with 10. There have been ve sweeps. The West swept the games in 2006, 08 and 10. The East secured two wins in the same year in 07 and 12. Rutherfords Jon Wade set the boys and overall scoring record with 30 points for the East in last years 96-76 triumph. It eclipsed the 28 points Lori Fletcher scored for the West in 2009. That gure remains the girls record. Chipleys Nikki Jackson holds the East girls mark with 26 points set in 2005. Three East boys, Wade, Carter Grubbs and Karlos Franklin, have scored 20 or more points. Five East girls, Jackson, Geami Britt, Shari Steele, Tanesha Middleton and Erika Johnson, have put up at least 20 points.AA Nd D REW JOHNSON | News Herald

BB OSTON CELEBRATES 12TH B B IRTHDAY Fourteen robots and their student inventors gathered in Marianna March 21 to compete in the sixth annual robotics contest sponsored by the Chipola Regional Workforce Development Board and Opportunity Florida. The contest challenged teams of students to design, build and operate a robot to outscore their opponents in head to head completion. Tech No Bot from Holmes County High School defeated Wolverines from Chipley High School 65-10 in the nal round to take the championship. Cottondale Highs Avengers defeated the Bulldogs 50-45 of Liberty County to capture third place. Students were challenged to design and build a robot that could move various size balls into scoring areas as well as lift balls into a scoring tube. Teams played four round robin matches that determined the seeding in a single elimination tournament. Tech No Logic also took first place in the Log Book competition as well as the Top Gun Award for scoring the most points in a single match. In the Log Book competition teams submitted logbooks that were graded and then the top teams were also interviewed by judges to determine the final rankings. The contest was started by the CRWDB and Opportunity Florida to give area educators an extra tool to use as they help youth learn how to think critically, problem solve and work as a team. Richard Williams, Executive Director of the CRWDB, said the contest is a fun way for students to expand their classroom knowledge. This contest gives students a chance to put lessons learned in the classroom to use in a way that offers them many challenges they have to overcome, Williams said. It is amazing to see teams between rounds working on their robots and actually applying skills necessary to do well in any occupation that requires knowledge in math, science, technology and engineering. The CRWDB provides oversight and implementation of workforce development programs in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington County. The board also works with local educational institutions, economic development organizations and local employers to promote our goal of having a highly skilled and competitive workforce.6th annual Robotics Contest A scholarship in the amount of $1,250 to be awarded to one Ponce de Leon High School senior, class of 2013.

I am not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping, while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this, but every once in a while Ill think of the right word, and then that word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of something else altogether, and pretty soon Im off on one of my little mind trips. One thing about these little mind trips of mine: They do not cost very much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I was thoroughly enjoying my trip, and then I began to hear in the background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the little trip I was on at the time. Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You... Listening... To... What... Im... Saying? At rst, they did not seem connected, and to be truthful, it rather upset me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. For some reason I happened to glance over to my right and was shocked to discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the passenger seat. At rst, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she was looking back at me! I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, What are you doing in my car? She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind trip. Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in life should be just that. A mystery. One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately I have had Easter on my mind. I know the word Easter, is not a very politically correct word today. But then I am not running for of ce; in fact, I am running away from politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in everything we do. Those people who object to the word Easter, I wonder if they really know where it came from. To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation. Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church of the Easter Egg Hunt? It has become a popular thing not to tolerate religion in our country. Well, let me correct that. We tolerate all religions except Christianity. It is too bad the people who cannot tolerate Christianity are unable to read. I think it is sad this generation is not able to read anymore, because if they were, they might read some of the history of this country and discover it was founded on Christian principles. Imagine that! I can understand why people are confused about Easter with the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg. Most are confused about how the Easter Bunny can lay Easter Eggs. They are only familiar with Bugs Bunny and everybody knows he cannot lay an egg. So, where do these mysterious Easter Eggs come from? Laying all that nonsense aside, and that is all it is, Easter has some very wonderful memories for me. Say what they will, nothing they say can undermine the wonderful thoughts I have about Easter. I like what the apostle Paul says, For I delivered unto you rst of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). The songwriter was right when he said, Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
