For the second time, the Bay County Transportation Planning Organization has passed a resolution asking that passenger rail service be restored between Jacksonville and New Orleans. It was abandoned after Hurricane Katrina tore through the region in August 2005. Basically Amtrak had no interest in restoring it, said Dan Dealy, a consultant working out of the mayors of ces in Mobile, Ala. He has been leading the charge, on behalf of Mobile, to restore the service. By January 2006, the hurricanedamaged tracks had been repaired, but the passenger line, the Sunset Limited, never returned, Dealy said. Amtrak runs its trains on freight rails, so these tracks are being used, just not by passenger lines. But, complications are rife when it comes to overcoming the inertia and getting Amtrak cars back on the rails. For one, the Sunset Limited route was never popular. The service ran only twice weekly and rolled through at inopportune hours, Dealy said. None of us have really great Bay pushes to restart passenger rail service INDEX Opinion ................................. A4 Outdoors ...............................

I want to be involved as much as I can with the kids, Johns said. Small towns are special, and pretty much everyone interested in these programs does it for the kids and for their community. Johns said early sports programs such as T-ball and pee wee football, which are sponsored by the city of Vernons Parks and Recreation Department, are essential in helping children grow into responsible, wellfunctioning adults. We have hundreds of kids come out for the youth programs, then sometimes when it gets to the varsity level, you have trouble getting enough to come out to make a team, Johns said. He would like to work with the community in maintaining childrens interest in athletics.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 8, 2013 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners focused largely on county roads dur ing its April 30 meeting. After months of studies and rankings, both County Engineer Cliff Knauer from Preble Rish and County Engineer Whitney Nelson from Melvin Engineering came up with county roads best suited for the upcoming Small County Outreach Pro gram and the Small County Road Assistance Program. Nelson said, with his ndings, the best road to be submitted for SCRAP would be County Road 183 from County Road 10A to the Wal ton County line. Knauer said the best roads to submit for SCOP would be Duncan Road and Thomas Drive. Our projects were nar rowed down to what we could complete in a year, Knauer said. North and South Ride are still on my list but may be able to funded through a Community Development Block Grant, combining both into one project and submitting it in October to be nished in the next two years. He said there are many other county roads that are in desperate need of repairs. However, with various ex tenuating circumstances, it would take more than a year to complete the other roads. Resident Lloyd Davis voiced his concerns with enforcing speed limits on county dirt roads. Weve got young people tearing up these roads and reckless drivers, Davis said. Are there signs we can put up so I dont have to keep calling the sheriffs of ce? Theres also a turn out there that if you turn that corner, you cant see them, and when its wet, you cant stop. Someones going to get hurt. Commissioner Bill Par ish added there are children and adults on four-wheelers causing trouble. They are out there on their four-wheelers destroy ing roads, Parish said. The sheriffs ofce needs to be out there before someone gets hurt. Its a law enforce ment issue. The board agreed to sub mit an inquiry with the Hol mes County Sheriffs Ofce about what could be done to reduce reckless uses of the dirt roads. Commissioner Bobby Sasnett said he had received numerous calls about mos quitoes becoming an issue and inquiring about spray ing for the county. During our last meeting, we approved of our licensed contractor to begin spraying immediately, Chair Monty Merchant said. Well need to get up with him to see if theres been some sort of delay. Holmes County IFAS Extension Director Shep Eubanks told the board the Florida Broadband Alliance was interested in the county participating in the expan sion of broadband into Hol mes County. However, there wasnt much time left before grant proposal had to be turned in. The board agreed a rep resentative of the Florida Broadband Alliance should be present to make the re quest and answer any ques tions the board might have before making a decision. Poor planning on their part doesnt make an emer gency on mine, Williams said.

It connected the East and West coasts and was a relic of the past, though the New Orleans-to-California por tion still runs today. Now, Gulf states are push ing for daily rail service, which would cater to the 15 to 20 stops that were shut down after Katrina. But, it all turns on Congress. Back in 2008, two important pieces of legislation were passed one requiring Amtrak to give Congress a report on restor ing Gulf Coast rail service, the other threatening nes to freight trains who slow down Amtrak passenger trains. These pieces of legisla tion were critical, Dealy said. The Amtrak restoration report offered three options the Sunset Limited or two different types of daily service. The second piece of leg islation, meanwhile, did its job to speed up arrival times. Amtrak trains on-time per formance rate is at 90 to 95 percent, a dramatic improve ment, putting it almost on par with airlines, Dealy said. Its been doing better every year since (the new law), most likely because the freight rails dont feel like paying any nes, he said. Yet, there are still no dol lars or decision from Con gress. Amtraks scal year 2014 appropriations request did not include the money to restore the service, Dealy said. Thats because Amtrak is waiting on Congress to choose which of the options it prefers, he said. This year, Amtrak updated its estimates for implement ing the three service options but has yet to receive any di rection and that might be more politics than anything else. Conservative Repub licans tend to oppose rail service, particularly when it comes with the high-speed tag. In 2011, Gov. Rick Scott rejected federal money for high-speed rail between Or lando and Tampa. Dealy said theres an im portant distinction between passenger rail and the highspeed service, which has been a bone of contention. But regardless, rail has become something of a polit ical football. The top lawmak ers and staffers Dealy has contacted have tended to be neutral or antithetical to re storing the rail line. Theres a lot of politics being played with transportation dollars right now, he said. Meanwhile, Amtrak was fairly tight-lipped on the cur rent state of the rail system. The service remains sus pended because of the cost and challenges associated with restoring service to the route, Amtrak spokeswom an Kimberly Woods said via email. Amtrak is recommending federal and state ofcials put their heads together and de cide if the service should be restored, and then which op tion should be implemented, Woods said. After that, the funding would need to be put in place. Once these actions are taken, Amtrak will move quickly to initiate the steps required for service restora tion, if such an option is cho sen, Woods concluded. TPO regional planner Vikki Garrett said the board heard the resolution at the Mobile mayors ofce prompting Amtrak to re store service. It was passed at a meeting in April, which Dealy attended. Earlier this year, Walton County and De Funiak Springs also passed resolutions requesting ser vice be restored. Other close stops includ ed Crestview, Pensacola and Tallahassee, but the whole system wasnt getting a lot of use before Hurricane Katrina. There were not that many riders; there were not that many passengers, Gar rett said. But, then, the ip argument to that is, Well, they werent providing daily service; it wasnt depend able; there were these huge delays, and our understand ing is theres been some changes in that industry that has helped keep passenger rail service more on time, which has helped them in in creasing their ridership. small towns. We are really lucky to have a school in as small a town as Vernon, Johns said. I want to do whatever I can to make sure we have a good relationship between our programs, Johns said. There may be some times when we need to use one of the citys facilities, or the city may need to use one of our facilities at the school. Whatever it is, just call me and I will be glad to help. Council member Tray Hawkins, who intro duced Johns to the council, said Johns enthu siasm has already made a difference in the football program at Vernon High School. Last year they had about 17 kids that wanted to play football, Hawkins said. Al ready this year, Coach Johns has about 60 kids in the program, and they are already training after school. Coach Johns was head coach at Blount stown, and in 2011, he went to Bacon High School, near Valdosta, Ga. In 2004, he led the Blountstown Tigers to a 15-1 record and a 1A state runner up nish. His 2005 team went 13-1 and made it to the re gion nals. In his 15 years as a head coach, Johns has won 115 games. He replaced coach Ryan Boyd. Hawkins said Johns was a two-time Florida Coach of the Year and he has coached teams to ve state championships. We are really fortunate to have him here for our kids, and he wants to be involved in the recreational programs. Johns said children who are involved in athletics are more likely to be self-motivated, involved and healthy, and if they develop exer cising as a habit early on, then they can stay healthy throughout their school years and beyond. Thats where everything starts, Johns said. We want to get them started in good habits when theyre young.

OPINION www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, May 8, 2013 A Page 4 Section When approaching a subject for todays Prattle, the Johnny Mercer song recorded and sung by Bing Crosby in my earlier days of listening to pop music came to mind. The lyrics of the song Accentuate the Positive begins with: Youve got to accentuate the positive, Eliminate the negative, Latch on to the af rmative, Dont mess with Mister In-Between. The second verse continues, Youve got to spread joy up to the maximum, Bring gloom down to the minimum, Have faith or pandemonium, Liable to walk upon the scene. Readers can judge for themselves, if the content of todays article meets the criteria for the sentiment of the above song. Should you be in the area of the Washington County Historical Society late in the afternoon, you will see a couple walking their exercise route eastward alongside the railroad, then southward on 8th Street to the north side of the combination Farmers Market/Historical Museum and back to the point of beginning. The two are long time residents of the city and reared children here who attended schools along with our sons. Many years ago, I learned they are natives of Red Level, Ala., and are well acquainted with the kinsmen of mine that I have come to know in recent years. He is John Purnell and the wife is Mary Louise Everett Purnell. Our cousins, Ron Taylor and wife, Mavis, from Red Level, have spoken to them several times as they walked their well established route. The last time was probably in June of last year when the Taylors were in town for the Paul and Leonard Gordy portrait unveiling ceremony held in the museum. Ron sang The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America as part of the patriotic program presented that day in honor to Paul and Leonards World War II service, where both were captured and held as German POWs. About two weeks ago, Hester and I made a point to speak to John and Louise after we had enjoyed our dinner of pizza at KC Pizza Restaurant. We were immediately pardoned for interrupting their walking regimen and enjoyed a good conversation with them. John, a U. S. Air Force retiree, told me of seeing the Northern Lights (son, Gordon told dad that I have been writing Great Northernand that applies only to dry beans) while assigned in Greenland. He mentioned the erratic nature of the phenomenal lights in that they would disappear then reappear in a different location while the observer was still looking at them. Parenthetically, John told me that he was viewing the lights in the early morning hours while working his assigned shift when the thermometer was showing 40 degrees below zero! He then added, We were all dressed for the occasion. So far, its all positive, so lets proceed. On Friday of last week, at least three obvious readers of Perrys Prattle, had positive comments for your writer even though not a direct compliment on the column. Bibba Cox, whom I have known since her employment in the local Library, called after seeing my reference to the Heritage Book of Washington County Book being available. In the conversation, I learned that she was interested in the E. W. Carswell book, Washington, Florida Twelfth County, needed for her son, David. She was referred to the Historical Museum, which is open on Fridays. Ironically, we met up at the facility and I accompanied her to her vehicle, along with her book purchase. Upon assisting her in getting into her car, these encouraging words were: Thanks a lot, your are a ne gentlemen and always have been! Later in the day, a missed telephone call was responded to and learned the lady, Mrs. Beatrice Findley Moates, had misdialed and offered many apologies for calling the wrong number. After a brief conversation, she stated. While I have you Mr. Wells, I want to tell you that I have always admired and respected you. (She has a story in the Heritage Book, p. 286), Before the day ended, I met up with a gentleman as each of us were at Lanes Outdoor Equipment, picking up lawn mowers from the repair shop. Upon noting a decal on his pick-up truck: Richmond Toyota Richmond, Ky., I told him of my only association in that town. I then related having a mechanical problem on a new, 1980 GMC van there and having it repaired. He then told he experienced a break down on a Toyota Truck in Richmond. He took the vehicle in for repairs in a totally strange town and ended up trading for the new truck he was driving, thus accounting for the agency decal he is still displaying. Before departing he took time to ask: Arent you Judge Perry? He then told me that he is a resident of Sunny Hills and a native of Spokane, Washington. I must admit that I do not remember his name, but I do well recall his complimentary comments on my service as a judge! The three above incidences all came the same day. It was on Friday, April 26, three days after Hester was admitted to Flowers Hospital, where she remains at this writing. My wife has known of the bronchial disorder for the past three years. Our neighbor, Bill Webb, has told us of also living with the same diagnosis In keeping with the Bing Crosby song of long ago, admonishing listeners to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, I hope this narrative is arranged in the proper order. Hester is under the care of the pulmonary doctors, who have been treating her since the diagnosis. The positive news is that medical authorities now feel that they have the discomforts of the malady, including the cough, to the point that she can soon be released. I trust that I have spread joy to maximum while bringing gloom to the minimum. See you all next week. Bing Crosby, dressed out as a Navy chief petty of cer for the cover of the album which featured Accentuate the Positive. PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells Youve got to accentuate the positive Last weekend, the subject came up at our house of when the Dust Bowl occurred, so I went to the computer and looked up a bit of history. Early this week, ironically, my husband happened up on a PBS program reviewing that terrible time in history. Not only was America in the throes of The Great Depression, drought and other factors caused the southern plains states of Oklahoma, parts of Texas, New Mexico, Kansas and other states to turn into a gigantic dust bowl. In the past, in lling out forms that asked for my birth date, older Americans would say, My, my! You were certainly born at a terrible time. Nowadays, most are gone on who would remember the Great Depression and the added disastrous dust storms. In 1931, the economic crash was a reality to the business world and affected everyone. Farmers actually suffered less than the laboring class, especially those who owned their land, because they at least had food and a place to live. However, many of them lost their land as debt for seed and fertilizer combined with low prices for their farm products brought about foreclosures. Sharecroppers were especially hard hit, and this was very true of those in the plains area where the dryland farming had destroyed the native grasslands that heretofore had held the soil in place. Sharecroppers were among the rst migrants to head west in a search for employment at a time when jobs were almost nonexistent. John Steinbecks The Grapes of Wrath was published in 1939, and from this book our family got a picture of the hardships of those affected by the Great Drought. Although we were poor by todays standards, somehow my Mama belonged to the Literary Guild for several years, enduring the wrath of Daddy. The Grapes of Wrath was one of the books we read that chronicled the Joad family as they watched the dust cover everything. They endured unbelievable hardships as three generations of Joads traveled for months in their 1928 truck loaded with as many of their household possessions as possible, experiencing Commissioner denies harassment allegations Dear Editor, Over the past few days, several news media reports have been published accusing me of threatening, harassing, bullying and discriminating against employees including the former county manager. I strongly and categorically deny ever engaging in any of these behaviors. I have never used my position as a newly elected county commissioner to ask for favors for anyone, including my husband. In fact, I have worked closely with our employees who have been excellent sources of information and assistance to me and I am con dent that the employees of our county are committed to serving the people of Washington County. As the events have unfolded from the past week, our employees have expressed their support to me and their con dence in our ability to move the county forward in an exciting new direction. I am convinced that our employees were put in the middle of an ongoing situation, which they did not understand or want to be involved in, and which they regret. I have asked the tough questions, sought answers and will continue to do what I can to make county government open and accountable as the taxpayers of Washington County have elected me to do. I have been overwhelmed at the support I have received since this story was rst reported and I am convinced that the people of Washington County see this story and understand these accusations for what they really are. Lynn Gothard Commissioner Shoot down ag-gag bill Dear Editor: Despicable, unconstitutional, ridiculous, immature, idiotic, and mendacious. And thats just how Tennessee newspapers characterized the states aggag bill now awaiting governors signature. Ag-gag bills criminalize whistleblowing that exposes animal abuses, unsafe working conditions, and environmental problems on factory farms. Instead of encouraging whistleblowing and preventing these violations, ag-gag laws ensure that consumers and regulatory authorities are kept in the dark. Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, and Utah have enacted ag-gag laws, but such bills were defeated in eight other states, thanks to a strong outcry from the public and newspaper editors. In 2013, new ag-gag bills were introduced in Arkansas, California, Indiana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wyoming. The language has been invariably drafted by the infamous anti-consumer American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Thirty newspapers and 60 national animal protection, workers rights, civil liberties, public health, food safety, and environmental conservation organizations have recently gone on record as strongly opposing ag-gag bills. Our government must never restrict our right and obligation to know where our food comes from.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the U.S. Department of Agriculture took note of the plight of the Oakies, as many of them were called. The Soil Conservation Service was begun as a result of research into the cause of the dust storms. Conservation measures such as contour plowing, terracing, cover crops, crop reserve programs, and different methods of tilling were instituted. Jack, my husband, worked his 16th summer with the SCS in 1941 with Mr. Curtis Straughn teaching farmers about terracing and other practices. Now, huge wells pump water and irrigate lands once too arid for farming, so we assume another dust bowl could not happen. But what are we doing to our water supply for future generations? Not only agriculture, but industry, population growth, manmade lakes, recreational use of water in pools and water parks are a tremendous drain on water resources. Water management districts were created to protect our natural resources, but too often big business and politics prevail over real conservation. We must be aware that the Dust Bowl was a disaster caused by a combination of farming methods and nature. Scientists urge us today to be aware of the carbon footprints we are making. There are any number of ways we can lessen the size footprint we leave. Reducing the size of our lawns and landscaping requiring water. Drinking water from our own well or faucet instead of from a plastic bottle. Turning off lights. Gulf Power has been sending us this little analysis showing how we compare with similar size homes in our area. In spite of adding insulation underneath the house, getting waterefcient toilets, an energyefcient washer and water heater, we still received an unfavorable rating. So I said, we will turn off lights, although Ive been under the impression that uorescent lights dont burn much electricity. Well, one month of turning off lights that I normally leave on all the time has made a great difference in our bill. Cant wait for their next report card. Recycling aluminum and tin cans, cardboard, glass, newspapers, and anything we can keep from the landll will help to protect our earth for future generations. This requires extra trouble, especially since we have no pick-up service, but we consider it our duty. I am told the biggest item to clog landlls is potato peelings. Imagine the mountains of these from such places as McDonalds, Hardees and Burger King! Did you know they make good mulch for your ower beds? I have heard this statement, and it ts this weeks topic. I cant do everything. But I can do something. And what I can do, I will do. I am trying. Will you try too? From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Two Wash ington County men were arrested on drug charges by the county Drug Task Force on May 3 after an investigation that was part of an ongoing marijuana eradication initiative. The Washington County Drug Task Force consists of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and Chi pley Police Department. Arrested were John Er nest Grantham, 52, of 2256 Ferguson Road in Wausau, in connection with charges of cultivation of marijua na, possession of mari juana, manufacturing of methamphetamine and possession of a con trol substance without prescription; and Cody Durran Birge, 32, of 1887 Horne Place in Chi pley, in connection with charges of cultivation of marijuana. Through months of undercover surveillance, investigators were able to identify and apprehend the two men in separate cases involving marijuana culti vation, according to a sher iffs ofce news release. Grantham was arrest ed on the property in the process of caring for the marijuana plants. Dur ing a search of the prop erty, investigators found a methamphetamine lab in the form of a shake and bake bottle which con tained a substance which tested positive as meth amphetamine, according to the release. During surveillance of a second location, investiga tors arrested Birge in the process of caring for ve of the 68 marijuana plants found on the property. The Washington Coun ty Drug Task Force asks that anyone with informa tion on illegal drug activ ity contact us at 638-TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@ wcso.us. From Staff Reports BONIFAY Thomas Wayne Carter, 53, of Bonifay, was ar rested on charges of manu facturing meth after the Hol mes County Sheriffs Ofce went to pick him up for violat ing his probation on May 2. According to the HCSO report, investigators with assistance from the Florida Department of Cor rections K-9 unit went to Carters house to bring him in for violating his probation. While they were talking with Carter, investigators noticed signs Carter was manufacturing meth around his house. Investigators received consent from Carter to search his house and found items used to make meth, paraphernalia and a small amount of meth oil, ac cording to the report. Carter is being held at Holmes County Jail and was charged with manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia. Sheriff Tim Brown asks that if any one has any information on suspected drug activity to call 547-4421 or repor tacrime@holmescosheriff.org.

I came here in the 70s, Gurspan said. It was a different time and different town. He described television as an evolving business. Im above my age lim it, he said. Its changing and computerized. You can go live from anywhere now. Compared to 20 years ago, its space-aged. Gurspan said unless you have a digital antenna in Holmes County, you do not have access to Channel 4. Theres an agreement between Channel 7 and Channel 4, Gurspan said. Most of Florida would have Channel 7, and most of Alabama would have Channel 4. He said the most dra matic event he was in volved in was in 2007, when a tornado touched down in Enterprise, Ala., and killed seven students. I ran in with my cam era, and everyone from all over the world was wanting my footage, Gurspan said. We were fortunate that we didnt have Facebook then. It wouldve taken a horrible situation and made it worse, but then again I may just be a different generation. Though someone from Channel 7 now covers Hol mes County for Channel 4, he said he still enjoys visiting. Ive always enjoyed coming to Holmes County, Gurspan said.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section A good friend of mine was fishing with one of his students from school and enjoying the day catching redfish as fast as they could put on a live shrimp, when a boat with an adult and two kids pulls up and commenced to fish as close to them as possible. Most people who know this fellow think hes a mildmannered school teacher, but if you cross him you had better look out. Hell let you push for a while, but there comes a time when a fellow has to stand his ground. I talked to him later about this situation and he said the only reason he didnt say anything to the adult was because there were children in the boat. So he just rolled up his pole and left mad as a wet hen. What he should have done was go by their boat and inform the adult he was performing a disservice to those kids because they would leave this fishing trip thinking it was all right to move in on someone and run them off their fishing hole. To fray nerves even worse, the first guy got on his phone and called one of his buddies out in the bay and they helped themselves to the redfish my friend was catching, and throwing back I might add. I know the temptation is great to run over to someone if they are catching fish. But how would you feel if it were you catching fish and someone else ran over you to get to them? Bad manners dont occur only on the water. Another friend was fishing on the beach when a resident who thought that because she owned land in Florida she also owned the beach, came over to him screaming her head off. She had signs placed on the right of way saying no one could park on the side of the road. She was screaming at this fellow that she was going to have his car towed if he didnt move it. About this time a deputy showed up trying to calm her down. She explained that property owners had custom signs made to keep people from parking on the side of the road in front of their houses, even though they lived a half block from the beach. My friend was parked on the opposite side of the road. She was informed that these signs were illegal and they had to come down. No one can have signs made to suit their purpose and keep others off public property. The state right of way belongs to the state, not private property owners. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Photos by Frank Sargeant | Special to the News Herald Towerboats such as this one are a favorite of anglers chasing cobia in spring along Panhandle beaches. The elevation allows better vision into the water to spot the surface-cruisers. By F RANK SARGEANT franksargeant@charter.net If you havent put some cobia steaks in the freezer yet this year, better hurry the heart of the season already is behind us, but the relatively slow warmup this year means there will be plenty around into May but you might have to nd them in areas other than just off the Green Reef where sight shing is the name of the game. And when it comes to king mackerel well, were just a bit early. The sh still are off west Central Florida as this is written but with water temperature at 70 degrees off Panhandle beaches, all it will take is the arrival of bait sh to put lots of the grey speedsters in area waters. And a few big ones are already here. Cobia age, growth and spawning Cobia reach weights well over 100 pounds. Many of the largest cobia on record have come from Panhandle beaches, including the 128-pound, 12ounce 16-pound mens IGFA line class record caught off Pensacola Beach in 1995 by Thomas Hardy and the 126-pound, 6ounce 30-pound womens record caught off Destin in 2000 by Cindy Knight. The alltackle record is 135-9, caught off Australia cobia are one of the few nearshore species found world-wide in temperate seas. Scientists with the Florida Marine Research Institute in St. Petersburg note that cobia are among the fastest-growing of all saltwater sh, with one-year-olds commonly reaching over 3 pounds and lengths of 20 inches exceptional individuals have reportedly reached 10 pounds and 30 inches in hatchery conditions. Two-year-olds can weigh more than 8 pounds and measure longer than 30 inches, while three-year olds often exceed 15 pounds and lengths of 3 feet. Fish approaching 60 inches are likely to be 7 to 8 and weigh in excess of 60 pounds. The species is known to occasionally live to 13 years. Researchers say cobia spawn offshore from April through September, with repeat broadcast spawning up to 20 times over the summer. Large female cobia can produce over a million eggs in a season, but despite the fecundity, the species never attains the abundance of other green-water species such as king and Spanish mackerel. While the most interesting way to catch cobia is sight-casting to them off the beaches in the March to early May migration, they can be caught throughout May by putting a live croaker or pin sh next to any nearshore channel marker or buoy. Biology of the cobia Dr. Bob Shipp, chairman of Department of Marine Science at the University of South Alabama, is an avid angler as well as a sh-scientist, and one of his favorite species is the cobia, intriguing not only as a game sh but because of its evident relatives. A baby cobia looks almost exactly like a remora in shape and color, except it lacks the sucker on the head, notes Shipp. Shipp points out that the propensity to hang around large sh is shared with the remora, as well; cobia are frequently found following sharks, whales, manta rays and sting rays. This has two advantages; rst, the large bulk is protection, an object that can allow a dodging escape when theyre attacked. And secondly, they feed on small sh ushed out by the passage of the larger creatures and on the leavings of their meals. Shipp says the cobia is one of the few species found worldwide in tropic and temperate seas without any known subspecies. Snook, sail sh, barracuda and others have evolved subspecies in the various oceans of the world, but not the cobia. (To learn more about cobia and other saltwater sh, check out the new edition of Shipps book Guide to Fishes of the Gulf of Mexico at www.bobshipp.com .) King sh tips The big schools of kings arrive following the vast schools of bait that travel from the Keys to the Panhandle each spring, and theres no question when theyre here exploding bonito, Spanish, kings and a bit of everything else, accentuated by ocks of diving gulls, makes it clear that the bite is on. But early kings can be a bit more challenging. And it so happens that the early sh are often big sh; they are more inclined to feed on larger bait, attacking adult lady sh, blue sh and Spanish mackerel, big mullet anything that provides a big bite for a sh that may weigh 30 pounds and up. One way to nd the early giants is to saddle up a 12 to 15 inch lady sh or Spanish with a couple of stinger trebles on number 6 wire down its side and slow troll it around the color line where the larger passes dump into the Gulf on outgoing tides, the dark water from inside the big bays forms a distinct color break and often a weedline extending a mile or more into the clear green water off the beaches. LATE COBIA, EARLY KINGS THIS MONTH Cobia limits have been tightened in recent years only one per day of at least 33 inches to the fork can be kept. King mackerel typically arrive in midMay and come on strong in June and July off Panhandle beaches.

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com A Section By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com SPRINGFIELD Dalton Dugger carried Wakullas baseball team throughout the season. It was his teammates turn to lift their leader on Sunday. Four consecutive days of postponements caused by rain were overshadowed by the untimely death of Duggers girlfriend on Friday, one day before Wakulla was set to host its annual prom. Playing with an indomitable spirit, Wakulla outlasted Rutherford 7-4 in eight innings in the Region 1-5A quarter nals at the Vera Shamplain Sports Complex. The War Eagles (22-6) will play Gulf Breeze in the regional semi nals on Tuesday. Rutherfords season came to an end at 19-7 overall. The teams were tied at 4-all headed into extra innings before Wakulla broke through with three runs in the top of the eighth. Dillon Norman, who hadnt hit the ball past the pitchers mound in rst three atbats, lined a one-out single to left eld to drive in Jay Estes with the go-ahead run. Micah Gray drove in a run with a bases-loaded groundball, and Dugger added a run-scoring sacrice y to provide the War Eagles nal run. Weve had a hard time the last couple days, said Norman, who was making his rst start of the year after recovering from a knee injury suffered during football season. Its been very emotional. We drove to Panama City three times before today. Its been a long four days. Wakulla coach Mike Gauger did not want to provide any details about Duggers girlfriend, saying simply that the teams senior catcher has a great support group with his family and teammates. Dugger is the War Eagles leading hitter this season with a .412 batting average and a team-best 28 RBIs Its something Ive never been a part of in 12 years of teaching and 13 years of coaching, Gauger said. It is surreal. Were a one-school county, and theyve all played together since they were allowed to play together. Theyre best friends. Its a very tightknit group there to pick him up. Rutherford rapped out 12 hits as a team but was unable to chase Wakulla starter Jake Walker, who pitched all eight innings. Walker struck out seven, walked two and allowed two earned runs. We came out and played as good as we could today, Rutherford coach Jon Hudson said. (Walker) is a good pitcher, and hes their ace for a reason. He threw a lot of good pitches today. Im proud of our guys. We just came up short. Added Walker, Coming into the game, I knew they were a good hitting team. I did my best to throw strikes and not give them free passes. The teams traded leads throughout the contest. Wakulla jumped ahead 10 on Bryan Nichols RBI double in the second, but Rutherford came back with Zach Davis run-scoring sacri ce y to tie the game in the bottom half of the inning. The Rams took a 2-1 lead in the third when Dondrayas Harris scored on a throwing error. The War Eagles regained the lead at 3-2 when Nichols lined a single to center eld to drive in two runs in the fourth. Rutherfords Kendall Herron knotted the score at 3-3 in the bottom of the fourth with a drive to the wall in center for an RBI double. With two outs in the top of the sixth, Jeff Barnes liner up the middle skimmed off the glove of Rams shortstop Dondrell Harris into center eld and allowed Estes to score. The Rams responded as Nick Nelson, Tyler Chatman and Zach Davis had consecutive singles to lead off the bottom of the sixth, and Herrons sacri ce y drove in NelPage 7 Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Chipley ends Jays return trip to state By BRADY AYMOND Pensacola News-Journal JAY Given the regular season history between the two teams, Friday nights Region 1-1A championship game gured to be a rock em, sock em slugfest between Jay and Chipley. Instead, the over ow crowd at Jay High was treated to the exact opposite, in every way. Chipleys Mallory Dean and Jays Chassity McCranie faced off in a pitchers duel, and this time it was Dean who got the best of the Royals with an 11-strikeout performance in a 4-1 win in 10 innings over Jay. During the regular season and district tournament, Jay (17-8) won all three matchups against Chipley by scores of 8-6, 119 and 8-6. This time around, it was different, as Dean shook off an early run to toss nine scoreless innings and send the Tigers to the Class 1A state tournament for the rst time since 2003. I threw different pitches this time, said Dean, who scattered six hits and By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com POPLAR SPRINGS The Poplar Springs Atomics couldnt overcome a two-point de cit in the sixth inning, although they had the bases loaded in their AA Class 1A regional semi nal against the Chipley Tigers on April 30 at Lady Atomics Field. The Atomics fell 5-3 to the Tigers, who will advance in the regional tournament. Were excited, but we still have a lot of room to improve, Chipley head coach Kami Fannin said. This win doesnt mean anything; we still have to keep going and keep working harder. The Tigers scored early, with Kari Waldrip scoring on a double and Kara Bush capitalizing on a single. The girls were brought home by Katelynne Oberts line drive down third base that found its way to the fence. Bottom of the rst, bases loaded, the Atomics Kelli McIntosh and Ashlyn Golden score on Savannah Rykens double to tie things 2-2. Two plays later, Paige Smith scores on Joley Dixons single to give the Atomics a 3-2 lead. In the third inning, Waldrip scored again, this time on Bushs double. Atomics pitcher Golden struck out Kendal Daniels, but Oberts single was enough to bring Bush home to make it 4-3. Chipley was leading 5-3 in the bottom of the sixth, and with one strike away, a double by Ryken followed by walks on balls by Beth Hall and Ceona Hall loaded the bases for the Atomics, but a pop-up foul by Emily Ladley was nabbed by Chipley Catcher, who then tagged Ryken out at rst to close the inning. Waldrip hit a double in the fth inning, then added the nal home run off of Daniels single. After Kallie Rodriguez was struck out by relief pitcher Sarah Gilbert, the Atomics had one more chance in the bottom of the seventh, but a hit deep out eld by Paige Smith was nabbed by the Tigers out eld, and runner McIntosh was caught off base to nish the game. Chipley improved to 11-12 while Poplar Springs nished the year with a 19-3 record. Poplar Springs hits: Riker double, single; McIntosh single, walk, hit batter Chipley hits: Waldrip double; Gilbert double; Bush single, double; Daniels single, RBI; Obert double, single, 3 RBIs Winning pitcher Dean, gave up 3 hits, 5 strikeouts of the win; Gilbert for the save PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS An over ow crowd turned out April 30 to see the Chipley Lady Tigers take on the Lady Atomics at Poplar Springs.

I threw a lot of curveballs. I guess I just had the right mindset. We came out wanting it. I think we wanted it more. We had heart; thats what took it. Dean also belted a 3-run homer in the top of the 10th for the Tigers (10-12), but the blast was reduced to an RBI single when lead runner Braylee Pooser was called out at third for missing the bag. I actually have a cyst in my wrist, and Im getting it cut out tomorrow, said Dean, who has signed with Pensacola State. Its killing me to hit right now, so thats why I was trying to bunt and play small ball. My coach said I needed to do some thing big, and I needed to hit it on the ground. I was actually trying to chop it, and it turned into that. Dean took the circle for the bottom of the 10th inning and struck out Bayleigh Upton. Brittany Gillman gave Jay life with a single to left, but she was erased at sec ond on a elders choice, and Dean got Ashlyn Geck to pop out to the shortstop to end the game. And just like that, Jay was eliminated from trying to match last years state run ner-up nish. Their pitcher is tough, Jay coach Bri an Watson said. You have to give her a lot of credit. She battled and kept us off-bal ance all game moving the ball in and out. I thought Chassity pitched well. We had an error there in the 10th, and they scored three unearned runs. In a game like that, you cant do that. McCranie was the hard-luck loser for the Royals after scattering 12 hits over 10 innings. She pitched six scoreless innings before the Tigers broke through for a run in the seventh inning to tie it and send the title game into extra innings. Pooser led off that seventh inning with a double before Dean was hit by a pitch, and Sarah Kaye Compton reached on a elders choice when the Royals tried to get Dean at second. Sarah Gilbert followed with a sacri ce y to center to plate Pooser with the game-tying run. It remained tied until the 10th, when the Tigers exploded for three runs to se cure the victory for rst-year coach Kam mi Fannin. This is my rst time ever being a head coach, and I just cant put into words how I feel right now, Fannin said. Its an amaz ing feeling. Im just super-duper excited. It just doesnt seem real. I just think my girls knew that if you lost you were done. I think they knew that was it.

Two miscues on the base paths in the inning ruined Rutherfords chances to take the lead, however. Cody Roby pitched ve innings of relief after taking over for Nelson with two on and none out in the fourth. Roby scattered ve hits, struck out three and walked two. Cody did a great job for us, Hudson said. Nelson, the Rams cleanup hitter who came into the game with a county-best 51 RBIs, led off for the Rams in three in nings and never came to the plate with a runner on.

By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com P ACE Before Mosley could think about revenge against Crestview, it rst had to deal with Pace on May 1. The Dolphins dealt with the Patriots alright, winning 5-1 in the Region 1-6A quarternal. Mosleys third playoff vic tory over Pace since 2006 advanced the Dolphins to Tuesdays regional semi nal at Crestview, which defeated Tate 10. Crestview edged Mosley 3-2 to win the District 2-6A title last week in a game the Dolphins dominated in everything but the nal score. Austin Bizzle scattered four hits and had eight strikeouts in the victory. He tossed 93 pitches, and Mosley coach Todd Harless said he would be in the pitching plans Tuesday. Andrew Deramo will start against Crestview and Bizzle is likely rst in relief. Clay Causey had three hits and drove in a run in each of the fth and seventh innings to cap the scoring. His single in the fth gave Mosley a 4-1 lead after the Dolphins loaded the bases with one out. Connor Green and Jordan Larry each had RBIs singles in the second to put Mosley ahead 2-0. Zach Rhodes doubled in Bowen McGufn in the third for a 3-0 Mosley advantage. Pace scored with the aid of an error in the bottom of the third to make the tally 3-1. Causey added a safety squeeze in the seventh to back Bizzle. The senior righthander walked one and had a pair of hit batsmen, but he avoided major damage in controlling the Patriots (19-10). Mos leys defense also kept Pace from having a big inning. Pace did a good job, they put tons of pressure on you, Harless said. We made the plays tonight. Anytime you can beat Pace at Pace in the playoff is a great win. Larry nished with two hits. The Dolphins (25-3) had nine hits and seek a third win over Crestview this season. Mosley won the two regular-season meetings before falling short in the dis trict title game. The rst few times we played our game, we had the big hits, the timely hits, Harless said. When we lost they made the routine plays and we left some runners out there. There really isnt anything we have to do differently to win. We just have to be Mosley. We need to go over there and play the way were capable of playing.

Special to Extra Rick Carter, principal of Walter Wellborn High School in the Calhoun County School System, has been named 2013-2014 Alabama High School Principal of the Year by the Alabama Association of Secondary School Principals. Carter will represent Alabama in a national judging of high school leaders in the MetLife/NASSP National Principal of the Year Program. His wife, Shannon Gallagher Carter, is from Fairview, Tenn. Rick is the son of Ricky and Alice Carter of Chipley and is a 1994 graduate of Chipley High School, where upon graduation he received a football scholarship to Jacksonville (Ala.) State University. Carter earned his first masters degree in 1999, a masters in school administration in 2004 and an Ed.S. in school administration in 2006 from Jacksonville State University. He began his career in education 13 years ago. His first administrative post was the assistant principalship at Talladega High School in 2004. In 2007, he continued as an assistant principal at Oxford High School. He obtained his first principalship in 2008 at Cleburne County High School, where he served for one year before moving to his current position as principal at Walter Wellborn High School. Carter is credited with leading school efforts to increase reading proficiency scores and graduation rate, increase reading and math test scores to reach and/or exceed AYP benchmarks with increased accountability and lower the number of student failures through successful intervention programs and RtI process development. Through his leadership, Wellborn has moved from year three of school improvement to an all clear status while continuously meeting all goals set by the state for AYP. There have been numerous programs that have led to the success of Wellborn, but perhaps the largest contribution has been the creation of the hybrid schedule and a family climate. This initiative began as a schedule modification to address problem areas including retention rate, discipline and attendance. Carter strove to provide students with a safe haven where personal relationships could be developed and smaller learning communities could be established. Since its inception, the dropout rate has decreased, the graduation rate increased from 44 percent to 85 percent, the retention rate has decreased to less than 1 percent, and school incident reports have decreased by 66 percent. These programs incorporate interest inventories and focus on ACT, ASVAB, the arts, project-based learning and community service. We are able to strengthen their skills and knowledge base through targeted enrichment programs of focus, Carter said. We continue to tweak our programs with teaching strategies and technology that are cutting edge best practices. The Alabama High School Principal of the Year Award is sponsored by the Alabama Association of Secondary School Principals. A trip to Washington, D.C., to the NASSP/MetLife Principal of the Year Awards Program is provided by AASSP. Carter will be recognized at the awards luncheon during the CLAS Convention on June 25 at the Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center in Mobile. The CLAS Annual Summer Convention is the largest gathering of school leaders in the state of Alabama. A plaque also will be awarded to Carter at the AASSP/AAMSP Fall Conference in November 2013. AASSP is an affiliate association of the Council for Leaders in Alabama Schools, an umbrella association that serves 11 affiliates comprising Alabamas public school administrators. CLAS is dedicated to providing the framework to connect dedicated school administrators and other successful leaders with a network for professional growth and support.

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 While many of us would like to believe our little puppy is fearless, the truth is there are many things a pet will experience that may frighten it at rst as it attempts to understand more. Pets can be fearful of all types of things, Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), said. Thunderstorms, reworks, cars and even children can all potentially be sources of fear for a pet. Pets become scared because they, like all animals, have evolved to recognize threats. Animals fear physiology is similar to that of humans with the heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature rising when frightened. Dogs, bred as pack animals, need to be with their owners when afraid. Cats, being more solitary, hide when scared and may be less destructive. The critical socialization period 8-12 weeks of age is an important factor in shaping the behavior of both puppies and kittens. During this time, the pet should have its rst vaccinations and then be exposed to all sources of stimuli including people, things and sounds. If you plan to have the animal accompany you while horseback riding, take it to a place where it can see and smell horses. If you plan to take the animal along during hunting, take it to the eld where it can see and hear gunshots, Stickney said. Crate training is also imperative from the rst day the pet comes home. This gives the pet a place to feel safe when you leave the house. The crate should always be a safe and happy place. The pet should never be put in these crates to be punished or for any negative experience, Stickney said. One way to overcome fear is to expose the pet to the source of its fear and reward them for when they are brave. Some dogs experience anxiety and become distressed when they hear keys being picked up. One way to desensitize them is to frequently pick up keys and then sit back at home or leave the house for a minute and then come back. The pet will slowly recognize to ignore these cues, Stickney said. A current market trend is tight-tting pet jackets to aid in behavior. While these may help, they are shown to mostly aid in modifying mild behavior problems. The idea is that animals feel safe and secure when they are compressed, just like babies when they are swaddled, Stickney said. To aid in more severe fears, specialized veterinary behaviorists prescribe a combination of behavioral medication and pharmacological treatments. Pharmacologic therapy only serves to help the behavior modication. There is no such thing as a single solution to x the problem, Stickney said. The sooner you address these issues, the better it is because these fears do not go away on their own, Stickney said. Nothing is easy about rearing a puppy. Its a big responsibility, but there are incredible benets if you put in the time and effort early on.

She could remember everything. All I had to do was ask dear old mom and she knew the answer. She knew everything. No matter the topic, she had an opinion about it, which truly amazed me as a young person. Before I went to school, my mother was my entire world. From the time I got up in the morning until she tucked me in bed at night, she was the master of my world. Whatever I could do, she was the one who allowed me to do it. Looking back, I can remember when my father got home from work in the evening he gave my mother a little break from looking after me and my brother and sister. If memory serves me correctly, my father watched us by lying on the couch snoring. I never could gure out how he could do that but it was his way of watching us and helping mom. As a young person, anything I wanted I had to requisition it from dear old mom. The thing that always amazed me was that she always had what I needed. I have often wondered how she could do that. But then, she was mom. My weekly allowance came from my mother. It took me a long time to realize the money for my allowance came from my father. I always believe mom had all the money there was. I remember coming home from the second grade with homework to do that just baf ed me. All I had to do was ask mom and she could explain it to me like nobody else could. Mothers are like that. They know everything and remember everything. What my mother knew only my mother could know. It was as if she could read my mind. It was as if she had eyes in the back of her head. It was so bad that I could not get away with anything. Believe me; I tried very hard to get away with something. For some reason my mother knew what I was going to do days before I actually thought about doing it. I am not sure who is credited with designing the rst memory board for computers, but I know who designed the memory board for people. I rmly believe that mothers were the rst computer designed and wired by God. Why in the world do you think they call it the motherboard? It is no accident that they come up with this term. My mother had a tremendous memory. This is the difference between mothers and fathers. Mothers cannot forget anything and fathers cannot remember anything. Together they make an invincible team for raising children. It was not until I became a teenager that a little click developed between my mother and me. I began to realize that my memory did not always harmonize with hers on some issues. As I got older, the harmony was less and less. For example. My mother would tell me, You must be home by 10 oclock. At least, that is what she said she told me after the fact. When I came in at 11 oclock, she reminded me of what she told me. For the life of me, I could not remember her telling me to be home by 10 oclock. I told you to clean up your room. Searching my memory board, I could not nd any indication that she told me this. I am not saying that she did not; I am just saying that our memories did not coincide on a variety of issues when I became a teenager. What struck me about my mother was she could remember conversation she had with me three years ago word for word. As I get older, I began to doubt the accuracy of her memory. The problem with that was, I had no memory of anything and so I had to rely upon her memory. Now that I am a parent, it is apparent to me that memory is a rather funny thing. I am not sure that my mother was in this category, but my memory is of such a nature that I can remember things that never took place. Not only that, I can describe it in detail. As a teenager I remember coming into the room and my mother sitting there looking out the window with a little smile on her face. What are you thinking about? She just looked at me, smiled and said, Oh, I was just remembering some things. Then she turned and looked out the window again and I left her to her memories. In celebrating Mothers Day, I cannot help but think of the many wonderful memories each mother cherishes. Their children will always be children. No matter how old their children get, they will always be their little babies. Memory is a delightful thing and sometimes can be very selective. I am sure, when a mother engages in the ne art of memory, they are all good memories. Solomon was probably thinking about his mother when he wrote, Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all (Proverbs 31:28-29 KJV). You cannot put a price on a good memory. Rev. James L.

For the second time, the Bay County Transportation Planning Organization has passed a resolution asking that passenger rail service be restored between Jacksonville and New Orleans. It was abandoned after Hurricane Katrina tore through the region in August 2005. Basically Amtrak had no interest in restoring it, said Dan Dealy, a consultant working out of the mayors of ces in Mobile, Ala. He has been leading the charge, on behalf of Mobile, to restore the service. By January 2006, the hurricanedamaged tracks had been repaired, but the passenger line, the Sunset Limited, never returned, Dealy said. Amtrak runs its trains on freight rails, so these tracks are being used, just not by passenger lines. But, complications are rife when it comes to overcoming the inertia and getting Amtrak cars back on the rails. For one, the Sunset Limited route was never popular. The service ran only twice weekly and rolled through at inopportune hours, Dealy said. None of us have really great Bay pushes to restart passenger rail serviceINDEXOpinion .................................A4 Outdoors ...............................A6 Sports ...................................A7 Extra .....................................B1 Faith .....................................B4 Obituaries .............................B5 Classi eds .............................B7Wednesday, MAY 8 2013Volume 90, Number 7 RANDAL SEYLER | The NewsThe Amtrak stop in Chipley was the closest to Bay County.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 8, 2013 By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners focused largely on county roads during its April 30 meeting. After months of studies and rankings, both County Engineer Cliff Knauer from Preble Rish and County Engineer Whitney Nelson from Melvin Engineering came up with county roads best suited for the upcoming Small County Outreach Program and the Small County Road Assistance Program. Nelson said, with his ndings, the best road to be submitted for SCRAP would be County Road 183 from County Road 10A to the Walton County line. Knauer said the best roads to submit for SCOP would be Duncan Road and Thomas Drive. Our projects were narrowed down to what we could complete in a year, Knauer said. North and South Ride are still on my list but may be able to funded through a Community Development Block Grant, combining both into one project and submitting it in October to be nished in the next two years. He said there are many other county roads that are in desperate need of repairs. However, with various extenuating circumstances, it would take more than a year to complete the other roads. Resident Lloyd Davis voiced his concerns with enforcing speed limits on county dirt roads. Weve got young people tearing up these roads and reckless drivers, Davis said. Are there signs we can put up so I dont have to keep calling the sheriffs ofce? Theres also a turn out there that if you turn that corner, you cant see them, and when its wet, you cant stop. Someones going to get hurt. Commissioner Bill Parish added there are children and adults on four-wheelers causing trouble. They are out there on their four-wheelers destroying roads, Parish said. The sheriffs ofce needs to be out there before someone gets hurt. Its a law enforcement issue. The board agreed to submit an inquiry with the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce about what could be done to reduce reckless uses of the dirt roads. Commissioner Bobby Sasnett said he had received numerous calls about mosquitoes becoming an issue and inquiring about spraying for the county. During our last meeting, we approved of our licensed contractor to begin spraying immediately, Chair Monty Merchant said. Well need to get up with him to see if theres been some sort of delay. Holmes County IFAS Extension Director Shep Eubanks told the board the Florida Broadband Alliance was interested in the county participating in the expansion of broadband into Holmes County. However, there wasnt much time left before grant proposal had to be turned in. The board agreed a representative of the Florida Broadband Alliance should be present to make the request and answer any questions the board might have before making a decision. Poor planning on their part doesnt make an emergency on mine, Williams said.

It connected the East and West coasts and was a relic of the past, though the New Orleans-to-California portion still runs today. Now, Gulf states are pushing for daily rail service, which would cater to the 15 to 20 stops that were shut down after Katrina. But, it all turns on Congress. Back in 2008, two important pieces of legislation were passed one requiring Amtrak to give Congress a report on restoring Gulf Coast rail service, the other threatening nes to freight trains who slow down Amtrak passenger trains. These pieces of legislation were critical, Dealy said. The Amtrak restoration report offered three options the Sunset Limited or two different types of daily service. The second piece of legislation, meanwhile, did its job to speed up arrival times. Amtrak trains on-time performance rate is at 90 to 95 percent, a dramatic improvement, putting it almost on par with airlines, Dealy said. Its been doing better every year since (the new law), most likely because the freight rails dont feel like paying any nes, he said. Yet, there are still no dollars or decision from Congress. Amtraks scal year 2014 appropriations request did not include the money to restore the service, Dealy said. Thats because Amtrak is waiting on Congress to choose which of the options it prefers, he said. This year, Amtrak updated its estimates for implementing the three service options but has yet to receive any direction and that might be more politics than anything else. Conservative Republicans tend to oppose rail service, particularly when it comes with the high-speed tag. In 2011, Gov. Rick Scott rejected federal money for high-speed rail between Orlando and Tampa. Dealy said theres an important distinction between passenger rail and the highspeed service, which has been a bone of contention. But regardless, rail has become something of a political football. The top lawmakers and staffers Dealy has contacted have tended to be neutral or antithetical to restoring the rail line. Theres a lot of politics being played with transportation dollars right now, he said. Meanwhile, Amtrak was fairly tight-lipped on the current state of the rail system. The service remains suspended because of the cost and challenges associated with restoring service to the route, Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods said via email. Amtrak is recommending federal and state ofcials put their heads together and decide if the service should be restored, and then which option should be implemented, Woods said. After that, the funding would need to be put in place. Once these actions are taken, Amtrak will move quickly to initiate the steps required for service restoration, if such an option is chosen, Woods concluded. TPO regional planner Vikki Garrett said the board heard the resolution at the Mobile mayors ofce prompting Amtrak to restore service. It was passed at a meeting in April, which Dealy attended. Earlier this year, Walton County and DeFuniak Springs also passed resolutions requesting service be restored. Other close stops included Crestview, Pensacola and Tallahassee, but the whole system wasnt getting a lot of use before Hurricane Katrina. There were not that many riders; there were not that many passengers, Garrett said. But, then, the ip argument to that is, Well, they werent providing daily service; it wasnt dependable; there were these huge delays, and our understanding is theres been some changes in that industry that has helped keep passenger rail service more on time, which has helped them in increasing their ridership. small towns. We are really lucky to have a school in as small a town as Vernon, Johns said. I want to do whatever I can to make sure we have a good relationship between our programs, Johns said. There may be some times when we need to use one of the citys facilities, or the city may need to use one of our facilities at the school. Whatever it is, just call me and I will be glad to help. Council member Tray Hawkins, who introduced Johns to the council, said Johns enthusiasm has already made a difference in the football program at Vernon High School. Last year they had about 17 kids that wanted to play football, Hawkins said. Already this year, Coach Johns has about 60 kids in the program, and they are already training after school. Coach Johns was head coach at Blountstown, and in 2011, he went to Bacon High School, near Valdosta, Ga. In 2004, he led the Blountstown Tigers to a 15-1 record and a 1A state runner up nish. His 2005 team went 13-1 and made it to the region nals. In his 15 years as a head coach, Johns has won 115 games. He replaced coach Ryan Boyd. Hawkins said Johns was a two-time Florida Coach of the Year and he has coached teams to ve state championships. We are really fortunate to have him here for our kids, and he wants to be involved in the recreational programs. Johns said children who are involved in athletics are more likely to be self-motivated, involved and healthy, and if they develop exercising as a habit early on, then they can stay healthy throughout their school years and beyond. Thats where everything starts, Johns said. We want to get them started in good habits when theyre young.

OPINION www.chipleypaper.comWednesday, May 8, 2013 APage 4SectionWhen approaching a subject for todays Prattle, the Johnny Mercer song recorded and sung by Bing Crosby in my earlier days of listening to pop music came to mind. The lyrics of the song Accentuate the Positive begins with: Youve got to accentuate the positive, Eliminate the negative, Latch on to the af rmative, Dont mess with Mister In-Between. The second verse continues, Youve got to spread joy up to the maximum, Bring gloom down to the minimum, Have faith or pandemonium, Liable to walk upon the scene. Readers can judge for themselves, if the content of todays article meets the criteria for the sentiment of the above song. Should you be in the area of the Washington County Historical Society late in the afternoon, you will see a couple walking their exercise route eastward alongside the railroad, then southward on 8th Street to the north side of the combination Farmers Market/Historical Museum and back to the point of beginning. The two are long time residents of the city and reared children here who attended schools along with our sons. Many years ago, I learned they are natives of Red Level, Ala., and are well acquainted with the kinsmen of mine that I have come to know in recent years. He is John Purnell and the wife is Mary Louise Everett Purnell. Our cousins, Ron Taylor and wife, Mavis, from Red Level, have spoken to them several times as they walked their well established route. The last time was probably in June of last year when the Taylors were in town for the Paul and Leonard Gordy portrait unveiling ceremony held in the museum. Ron sang The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America as part of the patriotic program presented that day in honor to Paul and Leonards World War II service, where both were captured and held as German POWs. About two weeks ago, Hester and I made a point to speak to John and Louise after we had enjoyed our dinner of pizza at KC Pizza Restaurant. We were immediately pardoned for interrupting their walking regimen and enjoyed a good conversation with them. John, a U. S. Air Force retiree, told me of seeing the Northern Lights (son, Gordon told dad that I have been writing Great Northernand that applies only to dry beans) while assigned in Greenland. He mentioned the erratic nature of the phenomenal lights in that they would disappear then reappear in a different location while the observer was still looking at them. Parenthetically, John told me that he was viewing the lights in the early morning hours while working his assigned shift when the thermometer was showing 40 degrees below zero! He then added, We were all dressed for the occasion. So far, its all positive, so lets proceed. On Friday of last week, at least three obvious readers of Perrys Prattle, had positive comments for your writer even though not a direct compliment on the column. Bibba Cox, whom I have known since her employment in the local Library, called after seeing my reference to the Heritage Book of Washington County Book being available. In the conversation, I learned that she was interested in the E. W. Carswell book, Washington, Florida Twelfth County, needed for her son, David. She was referred to the Historical Museum, which is open on Fridays. Ironically, we met up at the facility and I accompanied her to her vehicle, along with her book purchase. Upon assisting her in getting into her car, these encouraging words were: Thanks a lot, your are a ne gentlemen and always have been! Later in the day, a missed telephone call was responded to and learned the lady, Mrs. Beatrice Findley Moates, had misdialed and offered many apologies for calling the wrong number. After a brief conversation, she stated. While I have you Mr. Wells, I want to tell you that I have always admired and respected you. (She has a story in the Heritage Book, p. 286), Before the day ended, I met up with a gentleman as each of us were at Lanes Outdoor Equipment, picking up lawn mowers from the repair shop. Upon noting a decal on his pick-up truck: Richmond Toyota Richmond, Ky., I told him of my only association in that town. I then related having a mechanical problem on a new, 1980 GMC van there and having it repaired. He then told he experienced a break down on a Toyota Truck in Richmond. He took the vehicle in for repairs in a totally strange town and ended up trading for the new truck he was driving, thus accounting for the agency decal he is still displaying. Before departing he took time to ask: Arent you Judge Perry? He then told me that he is a resident of Sunny Hills and a native of Spokane, Washington. I must admit that I do not remember his name, but I do well recall his complimentary comments on my service as a judge! The three above incidences all came the same day. It was on Friday, April 26, three days after Hester was admitted to Flowers Hospital, where she remains at this writing. My wife has known of the bronchial disorder for the past three years. Our neighbor, Bill Webb, has told us of also living with the same diagnosis In keeping with the Bing Crosby song of long ago, admonishing listeners to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, I hope this narrative is arranged in the proper order. Hester is under the care of the pulmonary doctors, who have been treating her since the diagnosis. The positive news is that medical authorities now feel that they have the discomforts of the malady, including the cough, to the point that she can soon be released. I trust that I have spread joy to maximum while bringing gloom to the minimum. See you all next week.Bing Crosby, dressed out as a Navy chief petty of cer for the cover of the album which featured Accentuate the Positive. PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Youve got to accentuate the positive Last weekend, the subject came up at our house of when the Dust Bowl occurred, so I went to the computer and looked up a bit of history. Early this week, ironically, my husband happened up on a PBS program reviewing that terrible time in history. Not only was America in the throes of The Great Depression, drought and other factors caused the southern plains states of Oklahoma, parts of Texas, New Mexico, Kansas and other states to turn into a gigantic dust bowl. In the past, in lling out forms that asked for my birth date, older Americans would say, My, my! You were certainly born at a terrible time. Nowadays, most are gone on who would remember the Great Depression and the added disastrous dust storms. In 1931, the economic crash was a reality to the business world and affected everyone. Farmers actually suffered less than the laboring class, especially those who owned their land, because they at least had food and a place to live. However, many of them lost their land as debt for seed and fertilizer combined with low prices for their farm products brought about foreclosures. Sharecroppers were especially hard hit, and this was very true of those in the plains area where the dryland farming had destroyed the native grasslands that heretofore had held the soil in place. Sharecroppers were among the rst migrants to head west in a search for employment at a time when jobs were almost nonexistent. John Steinbecks The Grapes of Wrath was published in 1939, and from this book our family got a picture of the hardships of those affected by the Great Drought. Although we were poor by todays standards, somehow my Mama belonged to the Literary Guild for several years, enduring the wrath of Daddy. The Grapes of Wrath was one of the books we read that chronicled the Joad family as they watched the dust cover everything. They endured unbelievable hardships as three generations of Joads traveled for months in their 1928 truck loaded with as many of their household possessions as possible, experiencing Commissioner denies harassment allegationsDear Editor, Over the past few days, several news media reports have been published accusing me of threatening, harassing, bullying and discriminating against employees including the former county manager. I strongly and categorically deny ever engaging in any of these behaviors. I have never used my position as a newly elected county commissioner to ask for favors for anyone, including my husband. In fact, I have worked closely with our employees who have been excellent sources of information and assistance to me and I am con dent that the employees of our county are committed to serving the people of Washington County. As the events have unfolded from the past week, our employees have expressed their support to me and their con dence in our ability to move the county forward in an exciting new direction. I am convinced that our employees were put in the middle of an ongoing situation, which they did not understand or want to be involved in, and which they regret. I have asked the tough questions, sought answers and will continue to do what I can to make county government open and accountable as the taxpayers of Washington County have elected me to do. I have been overwhelmed at the support I have received since this story was rst reported and I am convinced that the people of Washington County see this story and understand these accusations for what they really are. Lynn Gothard CommissionerShoot down ag-gag billDear Editor: Despicable, unconstitutional, ridiculous, immature, idiotic, and mendacious. And thats just how Tennessee newspapers characterized the states aggag bill now awaiting governors signature. Ag-gag bills criminalize whistleblowing that exposes animal abuses, unsafe working conditions, and environmental problems on factory farms. Instead of encouraging whistleblowing and preventing these violations, ag-gag laws ensure that consumers and regulatory authorities are kept in the dark. Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, and Utah have enacted ag-gag laws, but such bills were defeated in eight other states, thanks to a strong outcry from the public and newspaper editors. In 2013, new ag-gag bills were introduced in Arkansas, California, Indiana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wyoming. The language has been invariably drafted by the infamous anti-consumer American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Thirty newspapers and 60 national animal protection, workers rights, civil liberties, public health, food safety, and environmental conservation organizations have recently gone on record as strongly opposing ag-gag bills. Our government must never restrict our right and obligation to know where our food comes from.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the U.S. Department of Agriculture took note of the plight of the Oakies, as many of them were called. The Soil Conservation Service was begun as a result of research into the cause of the dust storms. Conservation measures such as contour plowing, terracing, cover crops, crop reserve programs, and different methods of tilling were instituted. Jack, my husband, worked his 16th summer with the SCS in 1941 with Mr. Curtis Straughn teaching farmers about terracing and other practices. Now, huge wells pump water and irrigate lands once too arid for farming, so we assume another dust bowl could not happen. But what are we doing to our water supply for future generations? Not only agriculture, but industry, population growth, manmade lakes, recreational use of water in pools and water parks are a tremendous drain on water resources. Water management districts were created to protect our natural resources, but too often big business and politics prevail over real conservation. We must be aware that the Dust Bowl was a disaster caused by a combination of farming methods and nature. Scientists urge us today to be aware of the carbon footprints we are making. There are any number of ways we can lessen the size footprint we leave. Reducing the size of our lawns and landscaping requiring water. Drinking water from our own well or faucet instead of from a plastic bottle. Turning off lights. Gulf Power has been sending us this little analysis showing how we compare with similar size homes in our area. In spite of adding insulation underneath the house, getting waterefcient toilets, an energyefcient washer and water heater, we still received an unfavorable rating. So I said, we will turn off lights, although Ive been under the impression that uorescent lights dont burn much electricity. Well, one month of turning off lights that I normally leave on all the time has made a great difference in our bill. Cant wait for their next report card. Recycling aluminum and tin cans, cardboard, glass, newspapers, and anything we can keep from the landll will help to protect our earth for future generations. This requires extra trouble, especially since we have no pick-up service, but we consider it our duty. I am told the biggest item to clog landlls is potato peelings. Imagine the mountains of these from such places as McDonalds, Hardees and Burger King! Did you know they make good mulch for your ower beds? I have heard this statement, and it ts this weeks topic. I cant do everything. But I can do something. And what I can do, I will do. I am trying. Will you try too? From Staff ReportsCHIPLEY Two Washington County men were arrested on drug charges by the county Drug Task Force on May 3 after an investigation that was part of an ongoing marijuana eradication initiative. The Washington County Drug Task Force consists of the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce and Chipley Police Department. Arrested were John Ernest Grantham, 52, of 2256 Ferguson Road in Wausau, in connection with charges of cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana, manufacturing of methamphetamine and possession of a control substance without prescription; and Cody Durran Birge, 32, of 1887 Horne Place in Chipley, in connection with charges of cultivation of marijuana. Through months of undercover surveillance, investigators were able to identify and apprehend the two men in separate cases involving marijuana cultivation, according to a sheriffs ofce news release. Grantham was arrested on the property in the process of caring for the marijuana plants. During a search of the property, investigators found a methamphetamine lab in the form of a shake and bake bottle which contained a substance which tested positive as methamphetamine, according to the release. During surveillance of a second location, investigators arrested Birge in the process of caring for ve of the 68 marijuana plants found on the property. The Washington County Drug Task Force asks that anyone with information on illegal drug activity contact us at 638-TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@ wcso.us. From Staff ReportsBONIFAY Thomas Wayne Carter, 53, of Bonifay, was arrested on charges of manufacturing meth after the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce went to pick him up for violating his probation on May 2. According to the HCSO report, investigators with assistance from the Florida Department of Corrections K-9 unit went to Carters house to bring him in for violating his probation. While they were talking with Carter, investigators noticed signs Carter was manufacturing meth around his house. Investigators received consent from Carter to search his house and found items used to make meth, paraphernalia and a small amount of meth oil, according to the report. Carter is being held at Holmes County Jail and was charged with manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

I came here in the 70s, Gurspan said. It was a different time and different town. He described television as an evolving business. Im above my age limit, he said. Its changing and computerized. You can go live from anywhere now. Compared to 20 years ago, its space-aged. Gurspan said unless you have a digital antenna in Holmes County, you do not have access to Channel 4. Theres an agreement between Channel 7 and Channel 4, Gurspan said. Most of Florida would have Channel 7, and most of Alabama would have Channel 4. He said the most dramatic event he was involved in was in 2007, when a tornado touched down in Enterprise, Ala., and killed seven students. I ran in with my camera, and everyone from all over the world was wanting my footage, Gurspan said. We were fortunate that we didnt have Facebook then. It wouldve taken a horrible situation and made it worse, but then again I may just be a different generation.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection A good friend of mine was fishing with one of his students from school and enjoying the day catching redfish as fast as they could put on a live shrimp, when a boat with an adult and two kids pulls up and commenced to fish as close to them as possible. Most people who know this fellow think hes a mildmannered school teacher, but if you cross him you had better look out. Hell let you push for a while, but there comes a time when a fellow has to stand his ground. I talked to him later about this situation and he said the only reason he didnt say anything to the adult was because there were children in the boat. So he just rolled up his pole and left mad as a wet hen. What he should have done was go by their boat and inform the adult he was performing a disservice to those kids because they would leave this fishing trip thinking it was all right to move in on someone and run them off their fishing hole. To fray nerves even worse, the first guy got on his phone and called one of his buddies out in the bay and they helped themselves to the redfish my friend was catching, and throwing back I might add. I know the temptation is great to run over to someone if they are catching fish. But how would you feel if it were you catching fish and someone else ran over you to get to them? Bad manners dont occur only on the water. Another friend was fishing on the beach when a resident who thought that because she owned land in Florida she also owned the beach, came over to him screaming her head off. She had signs placed on the right of way saying no one could park on the side of the road. She was screaming at this fellow that she was going to have his car towed if he didnt move it. About this time a deputy showed up trying to calm her down. She explained that property owners had custom signs made to keep people from parking on the side of the road in front of their houses, even though they lived a half block from the beach. My friend was parked on the opposite side of the road. She was informed that these signs were illegal and they had to come down. No one can have signs made to suit their purpose and keep others off public property. The state right of way belongs to the state, not private property owners.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net Photos by Frank Sargeant | Special to the News HeraldTowerboats such as this one are a favorite of anglers chasing cobia in spring along Panhandle beaches. The elevation allows better vision into the water to spot the surface-cruisers.By FRANK SARGEANTfranksargeant@charter.net If you havent put some cobia steaks in the freezer yet this year, better hurry the heart of the season already is behind us, but the relatively slow warmup this year means there will be plenty around into May but you might have to nd them in areas other than just off the Green Reef where sight shing is the name of the game. And when it comes to king mackerel well, were just a bit early. The sh still are off west Central Florida as this is written but with water temperature at 70 degrees off Panhandle beaches, all it will take is the arrival of bait sh to put lots of the grey speedsters in area waters. And a few big ones are already here.Cobia age, growth and spawningCobia reach weights well over 100 pounds. Many of the largest cobia on record have come from Panhandle beaches, including the 128-pound, 12ounce 16-pound mens IGFA line class record caught off Pensacola Beach in 1995 by Thomas Hardy and the 126-pound, 6ounce 30-pound womens record caught off Destin in 2000 by Cindy Knight. The alltackle record is 135-9, caught off Australia cobia are one of the few nearshore species found world-wide in temperate seas. Scientists with the Florida Marine Research Institute in St. Petersburg note that cobia are among the fastest-growing of all saltwater sh, with one-year-olds commonly reaching over 3 pounds and lengths of 20 inches exceptional individuals have reportedly reached 10 pounds and 30 inches in hatchery conditions. Two-year-olds can weigh more than 8 pounds and measure longer than 30 inches, while three-year olds often exceed 15 pounds and lengths of 3 feet. Fish approaching 60 inches are likely to be 7 to 8 and weigh in excess of 60 pounds. The species is known to occasionally live to 13 years. Researchers say cobia spawn offshore from April through September, with repeat broadcast spawning up to 20 times over the summer. Large female cobia can produce over a million eggs in a season, but despite the fecundity, the species never attains the abundance of other green-water species such as king and Spanish mackerel. While the most interesting way to catch cobia is sight-casting to them off the beaches in the March to early May migration, they can be caught throughout May by putting a live croaker or pin sh next to any nearshore channel marker or buoy.Biology of the cobiaDr. Bob Shipp, chairman of Department of Marine Science at the University of South Alabama, is an avid angler as well as a sh-scientist, and one of his favorite species is the cobia, intriguing not only as a game sh but because of its evident relatives. A baby cobia looks almost exactly like a remora in shape and color, except it lacks the sucker on the head, notes Shipp. Shipp points out that the propensity to hang around large sh is shared with the remora, as well; cobia are frequently found following sharks, whales, manta rays and sting rays. This has two advantages; rst, the large bulk is protection, an object that can allow a dodging escape when theyre attacked. And secondly, they feed on small sh ushed out by the passage of the larger creatures and on the leavings of their meals. Shipp says the cobia is one of the few species found worldwide in tropic and temperate seas without any known subspecies. Snook, sail sh, barracuda and others have evolved subspecies in the various oceans of the world, but not the cobia. (To learn more about cobia and other saltwater sh, check out the new edition of Shipps book Guide to Fishes of the Gulf of Mexico at www.bobshipp.com .)King sh tipsThe big schools of kings arrive following the vast schools of bait that travel from the Keys to the Panhandle each spring, and theres no question when theyre here exploding bonito, Spanish, kings and a bit of everything else, accentuated by ocks of diving gulls, makes it clear that the bite is on. But early kings can be a bit more challenging. And it so happens that the early sh are often big sh; they are more inclined to feed on larger bait, attacking adult lady sh, blue sh and Spanish mackerel, big mullet anything that provides a big bite for a sh that may weigh 30 pounds and up. One way to nd the early giants is to saddle up a 12 to 15 inch lady sh or Spanish with a couple of stinger trebles on number 6 wire down its side and slow troll it around the color line where the larger passes dump into the Gulf on outgoing tides, the dark water from inside the big bays forms a distinct color break and often a weedline extending a mile or more into the clear green water off the beaches. LATE COBIA, EARLY KINGS THIS MONTH Cobia limits have been tightened in recent years only one per day of at least 33 inches to the fork can be kept. King mackerel typically arrive in midMay and come on strong in June and July off Panhandle beaches.

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com ASectionBy JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com SPRINGFIELD Dalton Dugger carried Wakullas baseball team throughout the season. It was his teammates turn to lift their leader on Sunday. Four consecutive days of postponements caused by rain were overshadowed by the untimely death of Duggers girlfriend on Friday, one day before Wakulla was set to host its annual prom. Playing with an indomitable spirit, Wakulla outlasted Rutherford 7-4 in eight innings in the Region 1-5A quarter nals at the Vera Shamplain Sports Complex. The War Eagles (22-6) will play Gulf Breeze in the regional semi nals on Tuesday. Rutherfords season came to an end at 19-7 overall. The teams were tied at 4-all headed into extra innings before Wakulla broke through with three runs in the top of the eighth. Dillon Norman, who hadnt hit the ball past the pitchers mound in rst three atbats, lined a one-out single to left eld to drive in Jay Estes with the go-ahead run. Micah Gray drove in a run with a bases-loaded groundball, and Dugger added a run-scoring sacrice y to provide the War Eagles nal run. Weve had a hard time the last couple days, said Norman, who was making his rst start of the year after recovering from a knee injury suffered during football season. Its been very emotional. We drove to Panama City three times before today. Its been a long four days. Wakulla coach Mike Gauger did not want to provide any details about Duggers girlfriend, saying simply that the teams senior catcher has a great support group with his family and teammates. Dugger is the War Eagles leading hitter this season with a .412 batting average and a team-best 28 RBIs Its something Ive never been a part of in 12 years of teaching and 13 years of coaching, Gauger said. It is surreal. Were a one-school county, and theyve all played together since they were allowed to play together. Theyre best friends. Its a very tightknit group there to pick him up. Rutherford rapped out 12 hits as a team but was unable to chase Wakulla starter Jake Walker, who pitched all eight innings. Walker struck out seven, walked two and allowed two earned runs. We came out and played as good as we could today, Rutherford coach Jon Hudson said. (Walker) is a good pitcher, and hes their ace for a reason. He threw a lot of good pitches today. Im proud of our guys. We just came up short. Added Walker, Coming into the game, I knew they were a good hitting team. I did my best to throw strikes and not give them free passes. The teams traded leads throughout the contest. Wakulla jumped ahead 10 on Bryan Nichols RBI double in the second, but Rutherford came back with Zach Davis run-scoring sacri ce y to tie the game in the bottom half of the inning. The Rams took a 2-1 lead in the third when Dondrayas Harris scored on a throwing error. The War Eagles regained the lead at 3-2 when Nichols lined a single to center eld to drive in two runs in the fourth. Rutherfords Kendall Herron knotted the score at 3-3 in the bottom of the fourth with a drive to the wall in center for an RBI double. With two outs in the top of the sixth, Jeff Barnes liner up the middle skimmed off the glove of Rams shortstop Dondrell Harris into center eld and allowed Estes to score. The Rams responded as Nick Nelson, Tyler Chatman and Zach Davis had consecutive singles to lead off the bottom of the sixth, and Herrons sacri ce y drove in NelPage 7 Wednesday, May 8, 2013Chipley ends Jays return trip to stateBy BRADY AYMONDPensacola News-Journal JAY Given the regular season history between the two teams, Friday nights Region 1-1A championship game gured to be a rock em, sock em slugfest between Jay and Chipley. Instead, the over ow crowd at Jay High was treated to the exact opposite, in every way. Chipleys Mallory Dean and Jays Chassity McCranie faced off in a pitchers duel, and this time it was Dean who got the best of the Royals with an 11-strikeout performance in a 4-1 win in 10 innings over Jay. During the regular season and district tournament, Jay (17-8) won all three matchups against Chipley by scores of 8-6, 119 and 8-6. This time around, it was different, as Dean shook off an early run to toss nine scoreless innings and send the Tigers to the Class 1A state tournament for the rst time since 2003.

The Atomics fell 5-3 to the Tigers, who will advance in the regional tournament. Were excited, but we still have a lot of room to improve, Chipley head coach Kami Fannin said. This win doesnt mean anything; we still have to keep going and keep working harder. The Tigers scored early, with Kari Waldrip scoring on a double and Kara Bush capitalizing on a single. The girls were brought home by Katelynne Oberts line drive down third base that found its way to the fence. Bottom of the rst, bases loaded, the Atomics Kelli McIntosh and Ashlyn Golden score on Savannah Rykens double to tie things 2-2. Two plays later, Paige Smith scores on Joley Dixons single to give the Atomics a 3-2 lead. In the third inning, Waldrip scored again, this time on Bushs double. Atomics pitcher Golden struck out Kendal Daniels, but Oberts single was enough to bring Bush home to make it 4-3. Chipley was leading 5-3 in the bottom of the sixth, and with one strike away, a double by Ryken followed by walks on balls by Beth Hall and Ceona Hall loaded the bases for the Atomics, but a pop-up foul by Emily Ladley was nabbed by Chipley Catcher, who then tagged Ryken out at rst to close the inning. Waldrip hit a double in the fth inning, then added the nal home run off of Daniels single. After Kallie Rodriguez was struck out by relief pitcher Sarah Gilbert, the Atomics had one more chance in the bottom of the seventh, but a hit deep out eld by Paige Smith was nabbed by the Tigers out eld, and runner McIntosh was caught off base to nish the game. Chipley improved to 11-12 while Poplar Springs nished the year with a 19-3 record.

I threw a lot of curveballs. I guess I just had the right mindset. We came out wanting it. I think we wanted it more. We had heart; thats what took it. Dean also belted a 3-run homer in the top of the 10th for the Tigers (10-12), but the blast was reduced to an RBI single when lead runner Braylee Pooser was called out at third for missing the bag. I actually have a cyst in my wrist, and Im getting it cut out tomorrow, said Dean, who has signed with Pensacola State. Its killing me to hit right now, so thats why I was trying to bunt and play small ball. My coach said I needed to do something big, and I needed to hit it on the ground. I was actually trying to chop it, and it turned into that. Dean took the circle for the bottom of the 10th inning and struck out Bayleigh Upton. Brittany Gillman gave Jay life with a single to left, but she was erased at second on a elders choice, and Dean got Ashlyn Geck to pop out to the shortstop to end the game. And just like that, Jay was eliminated from trying to match last years state runner-up nish. Their pitcher is tough, Jay coach Brian Watson said. You have to give her a lot of credit. She battled and kept us off-balance all game moving the ball in and out. I thought Chassity pitched well. We had an error there in the 10th, and they scored three unearned runs. In a game like that, you cant do that. McCranie was the hard-luck loser for the Royals after scattering 12 hits over 10 innings. She pitched six scoreless innings before the Tigers broke through for a run in the seventh inning to tie it and send the title game into extra innings. Pooser led off that seventh inning with a double before Dean was hit by a pitch, and Sarah Kaye Compton reached on a elders choice when the Royals tried to get Dean at second. Sarah Gilbert followed with a sacrice y to center to plate Pooser with the game-tying run. It remained tied until the 10th, when the Tigers exploded for three runs to secure the victory for rst-year coach Kammi Fannin. This is my rst time ever being a head coach, and I just cant put into words how I feel right now, Fannin said. Its an amazing feeling. Im just super-duper excited. It just doesnt seem real. I just think my girls knew that if you lost you were done. I think they knew that was it.

The Dolphins dealt with the Patriots alright, winning 5-1 in the Region 1-6A quarternal. Mosleys third playoff victory over Pace since 2006 advanced the Dolphins to Tuesdays regional seminal at Crestview, which defeated Tate 10. Crestview edged Mosley 3-2 to win the District 2-6A title last week in a game the Dolphins dominated in everything but the nal score. Austin Bizzle scattered four hits and had eight strikeouts in the victory. He tossed 93 pitches, and Mosley coach Todd Harless said he would be in the pitching plans Tuesday. Andrew Deramo will start against Crestview and Bizzle is likely rst in relief. Clay Causey had three hits and drove in a run in each of the fth and seventh innings to cap the scoring. His single in the fth gave Mosley a 4-1 lead after the Dolphins loaded the bases with one out. Connor Green and Jordan Larry each had RBIs singles in the second to put Mosley ahead 2-0. Zach Rhodes doubled in Bowen McGufn in the third for a 3-0 Mosley advantage. Pace scored with the aid of an error in the bottom of the third to make the tally 3-1. Causey added a safety squeeze in the seventh to back Bizzle. The senior righthander walked one and had a pair of hit batsmen, but he avoided major damage in controlling the Patriots (19-10). Mosleys defense also kept Pace from having a big inning. Pace did a good job, they put tons of pressure on you, Harless said. We made the plays tonight. Anytime you can beat Pace at Pace in the playoff is a great win. Larry nished with two hits. The Dolphins (25-3) had nine hits and seek a third win over Crestview this season. Mosley won the two regular-season meetings before falling short in the district title game. The rst few times we played our game, we had the big hits, the timely hits, Harless said. When we lost they made the routine plays and we left some runners out there. There really isnt anything we have to do differently to win. We just have to be Mosley. We need to go over there and play the way were capable of playing.

Carter will represent Alabama in a national judging of high school leaders in the MetLife/NASSP National Principal of the Year Program. His wife, Shannon Gallagher Carter, is from Fairview, Tenn. Rick is the son of Ricky and Alice Carter of Chipley and is a 1994 graduate of Chipley High School, where upon graduation he received a football scholarship to Jacksonville (Ala.) State University. Carter earned his first masters degree in 1999, a masters in school administration in 2004 and an Ed.S. in school administration in 2006 from Jacksonville State University. He began his career in education 13 years ago. His first administrative post was the assistant principalship at Talladega High School in 2004. In 2007, he continued as an assistant principal at Oxford High School. He obtained his first principalship in 2008 at Cleburne County High School, where he served for one year before moving to his current position as principal at Walter Wellborn High School. Carter is credited with leading school efforts to increase reading proficiency scores and graduation rate, increase reading and math test scores to reach and/or exceed AYP benchmarks with increased accountability and lower the number of student failures through successful intervention programs and RtI process development. Through his leadership, Wellborn has moved from year three of school improvement to an all clear status while continuously meeting all goals set by the state for AYP. There have been numerous programs that have led to the success of Wellborn, but perhaps the largest contribution has been the creation of the hybrid schedule and a family climate. This initiative began as a schedule modification to address problem areas including retention rate, discipline and attendance. Carter strove to provide students with a safe haven where personal relationships could be developed and smaller learning communities could be established. Since its inception, the dropout rate has decreased, the graduation rate increased from 44 percent to 85 percent, the retention rate has decreased to less than 1 percent, and school incident reports have decreased by 66 percent. These programs incorporate interest inventories and focus on ACT, ASVAB, the arts, project-based learning and community service. We are able to strengthen their skills and knowledge base through targeted enrichment programs of focus, Carter said. We continue to tweak our programs with teaching strategies and technology that are cutting edge best practices. The Alabama High School Principal of the Year Award is sponsored by the Alabama Association of Secondary School Principals. A trip to Washington, D.C., to the NASSP/MetLife Principal of the Year Awards Program is provided by AASSP. Carter will be recognized at the awards luncheon during the CLAS Convention on June 25 at the Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center in Mobile. The CLAS Annual Summer Convention is the largest gathering of school leaders in the state of Alabama. A plaque also will be awarded to Carter at the AASSP/AAMSP Fall Conference in November 2013. AASSP is an affiliate association of the Council for Leaders in Alabama Schools, an umbrella association that serves 11 affiliates comprising Alabamas public school administrators. CLAS is dedicated to providing the framework to connect dedicated school administrators and other successful leaders with a network for professional growth and support.

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3While many of us would like to believe our little puppy is fearless, the truth is there are many things a pet will experience that may frighten it at rst as it attempts to understand more. Pets can be fearful of all types of things, Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), said. Thunderstorms, reworks, cars and even children can all potentially be sources of fear for a pet. Pets become scared because they, like all animals, have evolved to recognize threats. Animals fear physiology is similar to that of humans with the heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature rising when frightened. Dogs, bred as pack animals, need to be with their owners when afraid. Cats, being more solitary, hide when scared and may be less destructive. The critical socialization period 8-12 weeks of age is an important factor in shaping the behavior of both puppies and kittens. During this time, the pet should have its rst vaccinations and then be exposed to all sources of stimuli including people, things and sounds. If you plan to have the animal accompany you while horseback riding, take it to a place where it can see and smell horses. If you plan to take the animal along during hunting, take it to the eld where it can see and hear gunshots, Stickney said. Crate training is also imperative from the rst day the pet comes home. This gives the pet a place to feel safe when you leave the house. The crate should always be a safe and happy place. The pet should never be put in these crates to be punished or for any negative experience, Stickney said. One way to overcome fear is to expose the pet to the source of its fear and reward them for when they are brave. Some dogs experience anxiety and become distressed when they hear keys being picked up. One way to desensitize them is to frequently pick up keys and then sit back at home or leave the house for a minute and then come back. The pet will slowly recognize to ignore these cues, Stickney said. A current market trend is tight-tting pet jackets to aid in behavior. While these may help, they are shown to mostly aid in modifying mild behavior problems. The idea is that animals feel safe and secure when they are compressed, just like babies when they are swaddled, Stickney said. To aid in more severe fears, specialized veterinary behaviorists prescribe a combination of behavioral medication and pharmacological treatments. Pharmacologic therapy only serves to help the behavior modication. There is no such thing as a single solution to x the problem, Stickney said. The sooner you address these issues, the better it is because these fears do not go away on their own, Stickney said. Nothing is easy about rearing a puppy. Its a big responsibility, but there are incredible benets if you put in the time and effort early on.

She could remember everything. All I had to do was ask dear old mom and she knew the answer. She knew everything. No matter the topic, she had an opinion about it, which truly amazed me as a young person. Before I went to school, my mother was my entire world. From the time I got up in the morning until she tucked me in bed at night, she was the master of my world. Whatever I could do, she was the one who allowed me to do it. Looking back, I can remember when my father got home from work in the evening he gave my mother a little break from looking after me and my brother and sister. If memory serves me correctly, my father watched us by lying on the couch snoring. I never could gure out how he could do that but it was his way of watching us and helping mom. As a young person, anything I wanted I had to requisition it from dear old mom. The thing that always amazed me was that she always had what I needed. I have often wondered how she could do that. But then, she was mom. My weekly allowance came from my mother. It took me a long time to realize the money for my allowance came from my father. I always believe mom had all the money there was. I remember coming home from the second grade with homework to do that just baf ed me. All I had to do was ask mom and she could explain it to me like nobody else could. Mothers are like that. They know everything and remember everything. What my mother knew only my mother could know. It was as if she could read my mind. It was as if she had eyes in the back of her head. It was so bad that I could not get away with anything. Believe me; I tried very hard to get away with something. For some reason my mother knew what I was going to do days before I actually thought about doing it. I am not sure who is credited with designing the rst memory board for computers, but I know who designed the memory board for people. I rmly believe that mothers were the rst computer designed and wired by God. Why in the world do you think they call it the motherboard? It is no accident that they come up with this term. My mother had a tremendous memory. This is the difference between mothers and fathers. Mothers cannot forget anything and fathers cannot remember anything. Together they make an invincible team for raising children. It was not until I became a teenager that a little click developed between my mother and me. I began to realize that my memory did not always harmonize with hers on some issues. As I got older, the harmony was less and less. For example. My mother would tell me, You must be home by 10 oclock. At least, that is what she said she told me after the fact. When I came in at 11 oclock, she reminded me of what she told me. For the life of me, I could not remember her telling me to be home by 10 oclock. I told you to clean up your room. Searching my memory board, I could not nd any indication that she told me this. I am not saying that she did not; I am just saying that our memories did not coincide on a variety of issues when I became a teenager. What struck me about my mother was she could remember conversation she had with me three years ago word for word. As I get older, I began to doubt the accuracy of her memory. The problem with that was, I had no memory of anything and so I had to rely upon her memory. Now that I am a parent, it is apparent to me that memory is a rather funny thing. I am not sure that my mother was in this category, but my memory is of such a nature that I can remember things that never took place. Not only that, I can describe it in detail. As a teenager I remember coming into the room and my mother sitting there looking out the window with a little smile on her face. What are you thinking about? She just looked at me, smiled and said, Oh, I was just remembering some things. Then she turned and looked out the window again and I left her to her memories. In celebrating Mothers Day, I cannot help but think of the many wonderful memories each mother cherishes. Their children will always be children. No matter how old their children get, they will always be their little babies. Memory is a delightful thing and sometimes can be very selective. I am sure, when a mother engages in the ne art of memory, they are all good memories. Solomon was probably thinking about his mother when he wrote, Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all (Proverbs 31:28-29 KJV). You cannot put a price on a good memory. Rev. James L.
