School board hears report from Chartwells Board members see rst drawings of new school By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.co m CHIPLEY — The Washington County School Board heard a year-end report on the school’s cafeterias and got a rst look at plans for the new Kate Smith Elementary School on Monday. Robert Russell of Chartwells School Dining and Connie Walker, director of Dining Services for the district, were on hand to present their year end report to the board members. “In comparing like for like versus last year, Washington County is within $200 of last year’s numbers,” Walker said. “This is in spite of lunch counts being down due to the new USDA meal pattern changes.” Walker’s report stated that as a result of the USDA changes, the national average shows lunch counts down 4 to 6 percent, with Washington County doing much better at only 2.1 percent. Russell said that next year, the USDA was making changes to breakfast which may result in fewer children eating their rst meal at school. “If they didn’t like lunch, they’re really not going to like breakfast,” Russell said. He said taking protein out of the meals was a trend with the USDA changes. “I told them we’re in the deep South. Down here breakfast is bacon and eggs, not a muf n and granola.” Russell said that last year began with the USDA setting a calorie limit on meals. “After ve or six months, they got away from that, but by them a lot of kids had quit eating lunches.” “I’m still hearing that children aren’t getting enough to eat,” Board member Susan Roberts said. “I want to make sure they are getting enough food.” “A hungry child is not a good student,” Russell said. Roberts asked Russell if Chartwells had contacted the state Department of Agriculture, but Russell said the changes to the menus were federally mandated. “We had to cut back due to the federal guidelines,” Russell said. “It Vernon council to reduce meetings Panel declines waiving water fee for resident By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.co m VERNON — There will be two fewer Vernon City Council meetings a month, beginning in July. “Sometimes I feel like we’re meeting just to meet,” Councilman Tray Hawkins said on Monday. The council discussed reducing the number of monthly meetings at its workshop on June 3. “We only have four new business items, and we just added one of those,” President Tina Sloan noted. “I think we can do with just one workshop and one meeting a month,” Hawkins said. The council voted to hold their monthly workshop on the third Monday of each month and their regular meeting on the fourth Monday, beginning in July. “We’ll nish up June with two more meetings,” City Clerk Dian Hendrix said, “then we will meet again on the third Monday in July.” The council members also declined a request from a water department customer to adjust her bill by $51.79. The resident said she had left her water hose on for three days by accident. The item was originally in the city council’s consent agenda, but Hawkins suggested it be moved out of the consent agenda for separate discussion and See CHARTWELLS A2 Miss Watermelon winners Co-ed softball tournament against domestic violence at Pals Park By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force will be holding a co-ed softball tournament at 8 a.m. on Saturday to raise money to build a shelter for battered women and their children. The tournament will be held at Pals Park in Chipley. “We’re raising money because there isn’t a shelter within a hundred miles for a woman and her children to escape an abusive relationship,” said Missy Sword Lee, Family Intervention Program Supervisor with Habilitative Services of Northwest Florida. “It’s bad enough that they’ve found themselves in a harmful relationship, they don’t need to pack up their things, quit their jobs, pull their kids out of school and have to move all the way to Panama City to nd assistance.” At the softball tournament there See VERNON A2 See TOURNAMENT A2 Kami Sherrouse, daughter of Carl and Kayla Sherrouse, reaches for her Sugar Baby Miss Pageant trophy on Friday, while First Runner-Up Ariah Skye Bar eld, at left, the daughter of John and Rose Bar eld, admires her awards.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 12, 2013 was very frustrating. This is just another example of the government overreaching, board member Vann Brock said. The Dining Services depart ment was also involved in holi day meals for the community and raised $4,000 for the Washington County Relay for Life, Walker told the board members. We achieved Silver level and were honored with Paint the Town Purple Team of the Year. Walker also noted that Dining Services had added a new Deli Station at Vernon High and Ver non Middle schools, implement ing new menus to comply with the USDA regulations, including ax seed pizza crust. The kids seem to like it, Walker said of the ax seed pizza crust. With enough Ranch dress ing, its okay, joked Vernon High School Principal Brian Riviere. Greg Kelly of CRA Architects also showed drawings of the pro posed Kate M. Smith Elementary School. Superintendent Joe Taylor said the school construction is expect ed to cost more than $33 million, and will be funded over a threeyear period. Of that $33 million, $7.6 million is the cost of removing the old elementary school, Taylor said. In January, the school board approved the 22-plus acre site be tween South Boulevard and Brick yard Road as the future home of Kate M. Smith Elementary School. At the January meeting, Dis trict Maintenance Director Mike Park reviewed the process the Site Selection Committee had gone through in choosing the new location for the school. This has been an ongoing process of about 20 years, Park said, and over the years, some of the names on the committee changed. In October 2012, the Depart ment of Education visited the el ementary school to determine the need for a new facility. Five days later, DOE issued the nding that there was a critical need for a new elementary school in Chipley, Park said. With that information, the se lection committee met in late December and again on Jan. 3 to discuss the choice of school site, which came down to either stay at the current location, or move the school to the 22-plus acre tract of land the district owns that stretch es between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road. The board selected CRA Ar chitects to create plans for the new school, and Kelly said these documents are necessary to hold our place with the Department of Education. The new school will accommo date 993 students and has 150,000 square feet, Kelly said. Just to give you a number, it is 600 feet from the end of one wing to the other, Taylor said of the drawings. It is a big school, it lls up that lot, Kelly said. Park told the board that the drawings were the result of CRA working with the Kate Smith El ementary staff. They arent just something he drew up, Park said. Kelly said he met with faculty and staff at KMS twice a week for about six weeks in preparing the drawings. Food Services person nel were also involved in the de velopment of the school plans. Were moving ahead, Kelly said, adding that the initial sub mission of drawings to the Depart ment of Education will be made on June 19. CHARTWELLS from page A1 consideration. I dont think we should be changing peoples bills, if we make an exception for one, then we have to do the same for ev eryone, Hawkins said. If we havent been doing it, I dont think we need to start. This would set a precedent. There was no motion made to approve the change, so the request was denied. Mayor Michelle Cook told the council that the July 4 pa rade will be held at 4 p.m. with lineup starting at 3 p.m. Were still look ing for vendors, she said. They can do anything except food. Cook also said that the city leagues 7-8 year old ball team returned from the Zone 3 Tourna ment in Bonifay last week with the Sportsmanship trophy. Sign-ups for football and cheer have started and interested parents are asked to contact City Hall at 535-2444 for information. Attorney Michelle Taggart of Chipley also submitted a proposal for services to the council on Mon day. The city of Vernon has been without a city attorney since May 14. Sloan said the council mem bers would discuss her proposal at the June 17 workshop and invited Taggart to that meeting. VERNON from page A1 will be a concession stand hamburgers and hotdogs, which will be cooked by Com munity South Credit Union, and t-shirts for sell for $15. Its amazing the sup port that has been given by the community, said Lee. Weve already sold quite a few t-shirts. She said they were also looking for volunteer score keepers and umpires. All our volunteers will get a free lunch, said Lee. The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force holds a regular meet ing the second Thursday of every month, alternating between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center. This month it will be held at 12 p.m. at Patillos res taurant in the middle of the WHTC campus and a free lunch will be served, she said. Next month we will meet at 6 p.m. at the Student Commons. In September they will visit Washington and Holmes Countys Board of County Commissioners with a proc lamation acknowledging Sep tember as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In October they will hold a walk/vigil and a concert in memory of loved ones who have been affected by domes tic violence. Lee also said that she is looking for anyone who would donate their house or facility as a shelter, explain ing that they could receive no state funding until the shel ter was successfully up and running for one year. Were a 501(c)(3) not for prot organization and any donation is tax deductible, said Lee. If there was some one that could be so kind as to donate their empty home for a shelter it would be a tre mendous blessing. For more information contact Lee at 596-3288.

The event will he at the Holmes County Agriculture Center on U.S. 90 East of Bonifay. The noontime lunch, consisting of home-cooked, covereddish special menus, is open for all to enjoy. The longtime family gettogether is held in honor of Thomas Jefferson Brock, the patriarch of the pioneer Brock family, whose history and heritage runs deep and long in the annals of Washington County lineage. Thomas Jefferson Brock was born May 1, 1856. He married Nancy Jane Yates, whose date of birth was Sept. 29, 1954. The oldest child, of the couples eight daughters and three sons, was Annie Virginia Brock Anderson, who was born on her fathers 19th birthday, May 1, 1875. She married James Henry (Little Jim) Anderson on July 11, 1894, and they reared a large family in the Washington County area. This family was the subject of Perrys Prattle last year, preceding the historic family reunion. It paid honor to the oldest grandson, Kermit Millard Anderson, who was pictured in his World War I uniform, which he proudly wore as a U.S. Army soldier while serving in France during 1917-18. Many descendants of Joshua (Josh) Brock and Syrilda Yates Brock join in this reunion. He is the brother of Thomas Jefferson Brock, and she is the sister of Nancy Jane Yates Brock. This years column spotlights Samuel Gadiah (Sam) Brock, the middle son of Thomas Jefferson Brock. He was born Dec. 30, 1893 and lived his entire life in the Hinson Cross Roads section of the county. He married Comilla Hall Brock, a Ponce de Leon native, on Dec. 7, 1913. Sam Brock reportedly worked along with her brothers in logging. In addition to working together, the Brocks and Halls visited each other often, attending church and sings together after the Douglas Ferry, crossing the Choctawhatchee River at Hinson Cross Roads, allowed easy access to Red Bay, Ponce de Leon and other communities on the west side of the river. Born to this couple were sons Donnie Brock, Willard Brock and Raz Brock. The two daughters were Blondell Brock Smith and Trudell Brock Worthington. All the children have reared families in the Washington County area. The writer is indebted to the youngest daughter, Trudell, for writing the full story of her parents, which is contained in the Heritage of Washington County book, pages 161-62. She is the only survivor of the children of Sam and Comilla. She graduated from Vernon High School in 1944, along with the Prattler, and has always served as my contact person for history of her family. Trudell is one of the six surviving granddaughters of the honoree. Others are Corine Brock George, daughter of son Thomas Jefferson (Jeff) Brock Jr. and Fannie McKeithen Brock; Mary L. Anderson Vaughn, daughter of Annie Jane Brock Anderson and John Henry Anderson; and the three surviving daughters, Frances Harrell Myers, Janie Harrell Kendrick and Myrtle Harrell Davis, daughters of O.D. Harrell Brock, who married W. Alto Harrell. Some of the offspring of Sam and Comilla left the area for employment. Practically all of them have now returned to live near the homestead in retirement. On April 12, it was my privilege to talk to grandson Dana Brock and his wife, Janet, and to granddaughter-in law Penny Brock, descendants of the honored family members featured this year. A special reminder was extended to them to attend the June 15 reunion, with all expressing intentions to attend. My connection to this gathering of renown goes to my paternal grandmother, Hannah Malinda Brock, born March 2, 1879, who married James Thomas Wells on Sept. 18, 1894, and was the fourth daughter born in the sequence. Their four sons and two daughters were also born and reared in Washington County. Attending the Brock reunion was a must among all the offspring in my family. In our household, it was not done as a drudgery, nor duty, but something everyone seemed to enjoy. It was a fun time for all the families, getting together and keeping in touch. Some members moved away from the county early in their married life are reared families elsewhere, and the reunion was their only opportunity of keeping in contact. My father, Hugh Wells, took pride in having ripe watermelons ready at the Brock reunion for Ned and Roy Anderson, his cousins who were reared in Pensacola. In later years, I told my dad he was keeping in good with his Pensacola kinsmen knowing he would probably be calling on them to help him sell his crop of fresh, homemade sugar cane syrup come fall. There were also cousins in the Tampa area that had to keep on his side as he was known to try his skills at selling the new crop of syrup that far away. My family and I eagerly look forward to seeing and visiting each and every one at the annual Brock reunion. My personal invitation to prospective visitors usually includes that we are short on formality, but long on hugs, friendship and wonderful food! Then I may add that visitors can expect to get a strong neck hug rst, and then the person hugging will ask your name. Allow me to personally invite you to our family reunion for an experience you will long remember. See you all next week. Studies show vegetarians live longer Dear editor, This weeks issue of Time Magazine brings more documentation that vegetarians live longer than their meat-chomping friends. A six-year study of 70,000 Seventh-Day Adventists, published in the current issue of American Medical Associations prestigious Journal of Internal Medicine, found that vegetarians and vegans have a 12 percent lower risk of death. This is but the latest evidence linking meat consumption to diseases that kill 1.3 million Americans annually. It comes only two months after a discovery at the Cleveland Clinic that carnitine, contained in all meat products, is a major factor in heart failure. Similarly, an Oxford University study of almost 45,000 adults in last Januarys American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found vegetarians were 32 percent less likely to suffer from heart disease than people who ate meat and sh. A Harvard University study of 37,698 men and 83,644 women, in last years Archives of Internal Medicine, concluded meat consumption raises the risk of total, heart and cancer mortality. Indeed, each of us can nd his own fountain of youth by adopting a meatand dairy-free diet. An internet search on vegan recipes or live vegan provides ample resources. Sincerely, Hugh Cornelius Chipley Recently, I posted on Facebook about the pleasure of sitting on the front porch at my old home place with niece Anita Russ Falmia, her husband, Pat, and our son and daughter-inlaw, Hiram and Judy. Wilhemina Belcer commented how that brought back memories of her childhood and how she had fond memories of sitting on the front porch listening to the night sounds. In her and my childhood, the front porch served as the social center of the home. At our home, it served many other uses. Because our front porch, which my Grandpa Wells called the piazza, faced west, it wasnt used much in the afternoons except to store the hampers of peas waiting to be carried to Panama City and Panama City Beach or some other destination. In late summer, it held the picked cotton waiting to go to the gin. However, the north end where the swing was located was still used to entertain drop by guests, mostly kin folks. It was also Mamas escape from the hot kitchen after the noon meal was served to the working men and boys. In later years, she liked to entertain her guests like granddaughter in-law Judy or perhaps Melba Harris for girl talk. Many summer mornings found Mama and us girls plus Grandma Wells, cousin Kathleen, Aunt Annie Wells or anybody else available on the front porch shelling peas to cook for the innumerable people who would nd their way to her table about noon. Sometimes, when the eld hands came in for lunch or when visitors dropped by, the front porch would also be used to cut and serve a watermelon. We ate it in the yard with the juice running down our chins, spitting the seeds on the ground for the chickens, which ran loose, to eat. It amazes me now that people pay a premium price for free-range chicken and eggs. I never considered them very appetizing. In my years as a newlywed living in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Terrel Creel, their front porch also was used as a social gathering place. While Mr. Creel used the southern side porch and its swing for lounging, Mrs. Creel entertained several of the town ladies either on the front screen porch or just outside on the narrow lawn by the street on the east of their home. Their home was located just across the street north from the old jail, which is now parking for First Federal/Bank of Bonifay. Many afternoons would nd several ladies to include Mrs. Vella Harrell, Mrs. Stella Creels sister, Mrs. H.B. Douglas, Mrs. Bartow Driver, Mrs. Dr. Vara and the three sisters, Mrs. Rosa Young, Mrs. Daisy Young and Mrs. Ada Brett, cooling in the shade of the great oaks that used to line both sides of that corner. As a 20-yearold I often sat and listened to their conversations. I learned a lot about what was going on about town. Some might have called it gossip, but it was not vicious, nor particular juicy. But it helped me as a new resident to know the connection between families, who was married to whom, who had a baby too few months from the wedding date and other important stuff. After I had lived there for perhaps a year, Mrs. Creel, whom I consider my greatest mentor, told me she and Miss Vella had decided I was like them. I took that as a high compliment. It meant I was not common, a word she used to describe people she felt didnt measure up to her standards. Though neither she nor her sister were snobs, like my mother, they knew there were people with whom we didnt associate. If they needed help, help them. Dont expect to make them friends. With all the hitchhikers, drifters and strays my Dad brought into our home, I think Id already learned that. Whether the homes front entry was designated as a porch, a veranda, or a piazza (and I never knew why my grandpa used that term) they dont serve the same function as in years past. In the s the breezeway connecting the house and the garage became popular. With their jalousie windows and long narrow space, they never lent themselves to sitting and shelling peas. With the addition of air conditioning to our homes, we seldom sit outside. Airconditioned Florida rooms have become popular. Beautifully designed patios encourage outdoor living, but nothing will take the place of the country house front porch where you sit out and listen to the frogs, crickets, cicadas, hoot or screech or barn owls, whippoorwill or chuck-wills-widow. Anita reminded me of her late dad, James Russ, as she pointed out the difference the other night. I never get too old to learn something new, and sitting in the dark, quiet, front porch is a good place to learn.

Lawry gave a brief his tory of how 4-L Diamond S Rodeo Company was formed and what it means for this year’s upcoming Northwest Florida Cham pionship Rodeo. Lawry conrmed the Northwest Florida Champi onship Rodeo held in Boni fay every October was the largest rodeo in this part of the country. “Most rodeos in this area go for two days tops, but to go for three days straight is rare for this area,” he said. “This rodeo is also nationally known for its grass and Grand Entry. The only other grass arena is in Oregon.” Grass had its advan tages and disadvantages, Lawry explained. “A lot of riders and par ticipants don’t like grass because there’s not as much grip as dirt, that’s why barrel racing isn’t done as much as it used to at the rodeo,” he said. “Person ally, I like it because I nd it more of a challenge, and I like a good challenge.” He gave an update on the rodeo circuit, saying the rules had changed as far as how many rodeos count towards the national competition. “It used to be that you could go to as many rodeos as you wanted to, and it would count towards the nationals,” Lawry said. “Now they’ve limited it to 85 rodeos, so the par ticipants have been a little more selective of where they ride.” Lawry also gave a brief history of himself and how the 4-L Diamond S Ro deo company came to the Northwest Florida Cham pionship Rodeo. “My family was in the cattle business, and I learned to rope at that time,” he said. “Eventu ally I got good enough to compete, and since there was no rodeo around that area, I had to leave home. I was blessed with a Godgiven talent to earn money competing in rodeos, and I competed everywhere I could.” He said he graduated from college one week, got married the next and was enlisted in the army the next week. “Due to failing the health exam I was back in the circuit,” Lawry said. “I got my Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association card and was a nalist in the California ro deo in 1981. I went to all the biggest rodeos in America and never knew I would become a contractor one day.” He said it shouldn’t have surprised him to be getting into the business because he was familiar with work ing with all of the biggest rodeos in America and how they were operated. “I eventually bought a contract from someone selling their rodeo, and before I knew it, the rodeo expanded from ve shows a year to 15 and 20 shows a year and have been do ing it ever since,” Lawry said. “Our bulls went to the national competition in Las Vegas, and in 2007, we teamed up with Diamond S Rodeo Co. The ‘4-L’ was added on and stood for our family of four Lawrys.” He said it was a good partnership because “they raised a lot of bulls and need a place to buck bulls and I needed bulls to buck.” “We’re a family-oriented business with very little down time in the shows,” he said. “A lot of contrac tors don’t care about timed events, but I do. I also thank you for all of the sup port that has been shown in this area. You’ve been a great bunch of people with great crowds.” Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo largest in areaPHo O T o O S byBY CEci CI L ia IA SpSP E a A RS | The News Above: Charlie Lawry with 4-L Diamond S Rodeo Co. was the guest speaker at Bonifay Kiwanis Club’s June 5 meeting.

Sen. Don Gaetz, RNiceville, said the chair and vice chair of the Sen ate Gaming Committee will hold hearings around the state, likely starting in September, listening to those with a “dog in the ght.” Gaetz said lawmakers will get plenty of feedback from big gaming interests, but he thinks all parties should get a say. “I want to make sure that people like law en forcement and the reli gious community … that they have an opportunity to be heard,” he said, also noting anti-gaming groups, like No Casinos, should get a chance to speak. Gaetz has never been reticent about his antipa thy toward gaming, and his opinion is unlikely to change. Still, when meet ing with The News Herald editorial board Wednesday, he said the state’s disjoint ed policies on the industry need to change. He wants comprehensive legislation, to put the issue to rest for a while, so the Legislature isn’t constantly addressing it year in, year out. “The problem we’ve had is that there’s never been a real policy on gaming; there’s been instead a kind of Band-Aid, patchwork, baling wire and chewing gum approach,” he said. It’s been a series of reactionary pieces of leg islation, Gaetz said. The state enters into a com pact with the Seminoles; then racinos (pari-mutu els that offer table games) say there’s a competitive imbalance. A x is made, but another imbalance is claimed elsewhere. “It’s always a kind of reactive, defensive addi tion of a shanty or lean-to onto what is (in place), as opposed to stepping back and seeing what ought to be or what might be,” he said. Gaetz also likes to point out gambling is ensconced in the state, frequently pointing to the state-sanc tioned Florida Lottery, call ing it a “numbers racket.” His meaning: Gambling isn’t going anywhere. Questions remain But plenty of ques tions remain: whether Miami would be allowed to bring in destination ca sinos, whether pari-mu tuels should meet race minimums to have table games, and whether local referendums can expand gambling. The Legislature also must renegotiate the Sem inole compact, which regu lates gaming on Seminole territory. Next year, comprehen sive legislation will hinge on the $388,845 study the Legislature commis sioned. The New Jerseybased Spectrum Gaming Group is conducting the two-part analysis. The nal reports are due July 1 and Oct. 1. Lawmakers have praised the plan, but some are more skeptical about the study, fearing lawmak ers might lean too heavily on it, shielding them from criticism. “That kind of takes the ball out of their hands,” said Stockton Hess, presi dent and general manager of Ebro Greyhound Park, which has announced plans for a multimilliondollar expansion — if the state expands gaming. The ipside, though, is some lawmakers might be so dug in that no study could change their posi tion. The entire Bay Coun ty delegation opposes ex panding gambling. Wait-and-see Out in Ebro, Hess is taking a wait-and-see approach. “We’re in the same mode as the Legislature — let’s see what this study’s going to bring,” he said. Hess likely won’t waste his time asking lawmakers to expand gambling, either. The Legislature already is aware of the pari-mutuel industry and its desires for more gaming options, he said. “They know what it’s go ing to take to maintain this industry and this industry’s employees,” he said. In January 2012, Wash ington County approved slot machines at the track, but state Attorney Gen eral Pam Bondi shut that down quickly. She issued an opinion requiring the Legislature to rst ap prove any countywide ref erendum before it’s voted on locally. The other op tion is to amend the state Constitution. It’s been more than a year since the vote, but there is still plenty of inter est in slots. “We get calls every day,” Hess said. “We get calls not only from locals — vot ers — that want to know what’s going on, why don’t we have them; we also get calls from visitors to the area that think that we have slot machines because oth er tracks that they visit do — in other states.” State Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, wouldn’t give a direct answer on wheth er she supports gam bling’s expansion through a local referendum. She staunchly opposes gam bling but said, “I have nev er come out against a local referendum.” But, Coley said, the ref erendum could be “cru cial” if there’s an effort to expand gambling state wide. She’s also not ready to bore down and discuss the issues that likely will be hammered out in the legis lation next year. She wants full information before go ing down that road. “Let’s see what the study shows and then we will decide how to best ad dress issues,” Coley said. She added: “There’s nothing for me to make my mind up about right now because I don’t know what we’re even going to consider.” Swift action The Legislature has shown it can take swift, decisive action on gam bling when it wants to. It rapidly banned Internet cafes during the recent session after the Allied Veterans scandal broke, resulting in the lieutenant governor’s resignation. State Rep.  Jimmy Pa tronis, R-Panama City, was a cosponsor on that bill, and he touted its po tential impact on future legislation. “With the sweepstakes legislation that I sponsored along with Rep. (Carlos) Trujillo last year, there was swift action. I think that this will make those inter ested in expansion of new gaming very cautious in their proposed ideas,” he said via email. Patronis also conrmed he doesn’t support any ex pansion of gambling, even by local referendum. Asked if the study could contain anything that would change his mind, Pa tronis said “I have no idea what will be suggested in the ndings. I’m sure it will be an interesting read.” Gaming study, hearings coming “The problem we’ve had is that there’s never been a real policy on gaming; there’s been instead a kind of Band-Aid, patchwork, baling wire and chewing gum approach.” Sen.

O UTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Where has all the bait gone? Primarily, cigar minnows. Of course herring are as popular as cigar minnows, but they also have pulled a disappearing act. On Monday, a wad of herring showed up at the bell buoy, but that has been it. Until this year you could pull up to any buoy in the pass using a sibiki rig and catch a livewell full of bait in no time. Not this year. Hardtails are plentiful in the pass and in the Gulf, but little else. Most of the time you might see bait on top of the water around the buoys if the tide is coming in through the pass. When that tide turns and heads back out the bait goes with it. When you sh for bait, remember to check the tide; incoming tide is what you want. Often you can use your sounding machine and nd cigar minnows on the bottom on the sides of the channel in about 20 feet of water. So far this year that has not been the case. So the next time you head out snapper shing you might stop at the tackle store or at the live bait barge and ll up because you aren’t going to have much success around the buoys with gold hooks and sibiki rigs. Amberjack season went out the same day snapper season came in, but the word doesn’t seem to have gotten around. We have three different types of jacks we generally catch around here: amberjack, lesser amberjack and rudder sh. The greater amberjack and the rudder sh are the two jacks that are easy to identify. The lesser amberjack I’m not sure anyone can tell what it looks like. The lesser amberjack has a different dorsal n con guration and of course it is a smaller jack compared to a 30-inch greater amberjack. But not all greater amberjack are large. Some are as small as the lesser jack and therefore hard to identify. Right now you can catch and keep 5 lesser amberjack of between 1422 inches if you are brave enough to try and identify one. Banded rudder sh are the easier to identify. They are a more rounded jack and they also have to be between 14-22 inches long.

Tony Davis on Tuesday. His pending world record red snapper, a 9.5-pounder, was caught on a 6-pound tippet. The current record on the books for red snapper on 6-pound tippet is 7.13 pounds caught by Ched Cooke in 2010. “I wonder if he (Ched Cooke) had a cold chill run across his back a couple of hours ago,” Stough jokingly said Tuesday afternoon after they weighed his snapper at HarborWalk Marina. This is not Stough’s rst time to y sh for snapper out of Destin, nor his rst world record. Last year, while shing aboard the Anastasia, he set the world record for 16-pound tippet with a 12.6-pound red snapper, and the record for 8pound line with a 12.1-pounder. “I sh all over the world, but Destin is by far the best place to catch red snapper,” Stough said. Stough, who has been chartering trips aboard the Anastasia for more than a decade, set aside ve days to try and set a few world records. His plans were to catch the largest snapper on 12, 6, 4 and 2 pound tippet. On Tuesday, day three of his shing expedition, they targeted snapper using 12and 6-pound tippet. “We broke off about a dozen red snapper, as well as released about 10 small ones,” said Capt. Davis, before Stough pulled in the winning keeper. Fly shing for red snapper, a bottom dwelling sh, can be a challenge. Davis explained that they chum the sh to the top then Stough goes to work with the y. Stough said he likes to use a Clouser y and he set aside about six dozen for his time in Destin. “They hit a y real well,” Stough said. “But y shing is demanding.” Stough explained that red snapper are programmed to go to protective cover once they take the y. With a regular rod and reel, an angler could hoist a snapper in the boat in a couple of minutes. “But on this rod it took about 25 minutes,” Stough said. “You have to be gentle … and not much drag.” Fly shing is “more nesse than brawn,” he said. And it takes a lot of patience on the part of the captain as well. The captain has the dif culty of holding up on a spot and wind is always a factor. But Stough spoke highly of Davis and the Destin captains. “The professionalism of the eet here is great,” Stough said. “And Destin is a place where you can still have your catch cooked up.” “This is exciting, pretty incredible,” Stough said, once his catch was weighed and measured in at, 26 long, and 19 around the girth. The crew had plans to go back out a couple of more days, weather permitting. “I want to own every line class for red snapper,” Stough said. “And I’m slowly but surely getting there.” Ohio man pulls in another possible world record TINA HARBUCK | The Destin Log Top: Michael Stough measures the girth of the red snapper. The snapper measured 26 long, and 19 around the girth. Stough caught the snapper while fishing aboard Anastasia with Capt. Tony Davis, pictured at right. Above: Stough shows off his 9.5pound red snapper. His catch is a pending world record for that particular class line. Stough, who has been chartering trips aboard the Anastasia for more than a decade, set aside five days to try and set a few world records.

Wing was one of several master-level instructors invited to teach at the Korean Martial Arts Festival in Crestview on April 20, an event he has been invited to teach at for several years. The weekend-long annual event featured 21 master-level instructors from across the world who conducted seminars at Gordon Martial Arts in Crestview. Thomas Gordon, owner of Gordon Martial Arts, is also a Crestview City Council member. “As one of the best kickers I’ve ever come across, Master Wing normally teaches a kicking seminar at the Korean Martial Art Festival where people come from Canada, Australia, England, and all over the USA,” said Gordon. “For about ve years, my buddy and fellow martial artist, Gregory Bledsoe and I drove 130ish miles once a week to train with Master Wing. Sometimes communities are unaware of a jewel they have teaching in their area.” The Korean Martial Art Festival is hosted at Gordon Martial Arts and was ranked by Black Belt Magazine as one of the “10 Most Do Martial Art Events” and brings people from all over the world. Two martial arts students said recent seminars helped them improve their technique and inspired continued education in combat practices. “The more I attend these conferences or festivals, the more I thirst for knowledge,” said Crestview resident Dr. Alberto Barbon. Learning about various techniques, including forms, sparring and weapons training, reminded him “you can always improve on what you’re doing,” he said. Crestview resident Angela Mobley agreed. She began practicing martial arts nine months ago following her children’s participation in the program. “It’s something we can do together, it’s exercise, it’s learning something new,” she said.

They have a great program.” Stephens, son of Bradley and Jamie Stephens, signed on with Enterprise State College in Enterprise, Ala. after playing as Point Guard for the Wildcats, averaging 15 points, seven assists, six rebounds and three steals per game. “The only thing I promised was to teach them how to work hard,” said Head Coach Carson Lassiter. “Sometimes hard work pays off and they have worked very hard to get where they are.” Wednesday, June 12, 2013 Page 9

By HAZ eE L TI sS ON Special to ExtraBONI BONI F A A Y — Mayor Lawrence Cloud proclaimed the week of June 2-8 as National Garden Week, and Bonifay Garden Club celebrated with a number of activities. National Garden Clubs, in an effort to acknowledge the importance of gardening and the numerous contributions of gardeners, have designated that week. Under the leadership of new Bonifay Garden Club president Adonna Bartlett, small teacup plants are being distributed to various businesses as well as to the public library and the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce. A banner, courtesy of Sims Signs, announces Garden Week. Colorful ribbons along Waukesha Street, courtesy of Bonifay Florist, reminded visitors of the special observance. Several planters, which the city of Bonifay previously bought, have been placed at the intersection of State Road 79 and U.S. 90. Garden Club members planted them with help from a donation by Wal-Mart in the amount of $50 for potting soil and fertilizer. The pots will be an ongoing project in cooperation with the city crew, who has pledged to keep them watered. Another new ongoing project is the planting and maintaining of the serenity garden at Bonifay Nursing and Rehabilitation. DiAnn Shores and Barlett are carrying on that project. An Intermediate Garden Club at Bonifay Middle School is sponsored by Bonifay Garden Club. Hazel Tison and Susan Pittman lead this with help from others. In May, 35 sixth grade students were able to decorate and take home a bird house made from recycled cans, thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Ricky Bush. They proudly showed the gardens each of Dawn Barone’s sixth grade class grows on the school campus. To celebrate National Garden Week, the Intermediate Gardeners will have a eld trip to Tison’s Blueberry Farm for a tour and a picnic. Each student will be able to pick a pint of berries. Bonifay Garden Club hopes this emphasis on National Garden Week will remind the public to be more aware of the benets of gardening in beautifying and protecting the environment, increasing the health of all creatures and the rewards that come from challenging and productive work.

By RANDAL YAKEY 522-5108 | @ryakey ryakey@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — As she peered out across Pretty Bayou from behind the big glass window in her living room, Sandra Wilson contemplated another long, 10-hour study session for the bar exam and a new career as a lawyer. But, Sandra Wilson is no average law school graduate. The 70-year-old grandmother with three grown children is venturing into a new chapter in her life when most people are contemplating a rocking chair. But, that isn’t Sandra Wilson. “I love the law,” said Wilson, whose family are the proprietors of Wilson Funeral Home in Panama City. Wilson graduated from Florida State University in 2009 after years ago leaving college and raising a fam ily. She entered law school at Faulkner University in Alabama in 2010 and graduated in May. Tackling law school was a personal challenge to Wilson. She moved to Montgomery, Ala., to attend Faulkner. “I lived there for three years,” Wil son said. “I never lived by myself. I left my parents home when I married my husband (Steve).” Wilson said living away from her family was an adventure at times. “It was amazing doing things that were foreign to me,” she said. So, why did she subject herself to the tough grind of law school? “It is not for monetary benet,” Wilson said. Instead, Wilson said, she wants to help others and specialize in children’s law, possibly as a child advocate. “I really want to do something in the public interest. I really want my degree to be used as a ministry,” Wil son said. Even while completing her un dergraduate degree, Wilson said, she continually gravitated toward law as a subject. “I found that every time I was writ ing a paper I was writing about the law. I would always gravitate towards the law. Then when a couple of class mates of mine decided to go to law school, I thought, ‘I wish I could do that,’ ” Wilson said. Wilson said when she headed off to law school she was given an iPhone. Her husband, Steve, asked her if she even knew how to use the device. Soon, Steve Wilson was getting on the technology bandwagon. “Not only did I have an iPhone, but he got an iPhone,” she said. Wilson hopes to take the bar exam this summer, and upon passing, get a job. Steve Wilson said he has stood be hind his wife all the way in her pursuit of a law degree. “We had been married for 47 years and she put up with me,” Steve Wilson said. “If she was going to go, I was go ing to support her to the very end.” The Wilsons celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary June 1. Many people see their pet as their own child, but what do you do when you nd that your little one will soon be having children of their own? Knowing how to care for your pet during pregnancy and after childbirth is essential for any responsible pet owner. So how do you tell if your pet is expecting? “Some telltale signs to watch for in a pregnant dog is lethargy, not wanting to eat as much, not playing as much as usual and enlarged nipples,” said Jean Laird, veterinary technician at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVM). “These are attributed to a change in hormones and milk production. Even if you are sure there is no way a dog has gotten in your yard, it is best to take her to the veterinarian to conrm if she is pregnant. Intact male dogs are surprisingly persistent when a female is in heat. While there is a pregnancy test for pets, a small litter may result in a false negative.” If you believe your pet is pregnant, the rst thing you should do is take her in to see a veterinarian. Certain conditions exist that may appear to be pregnancy but in reality are alarming and may even be life threatening. “One condition that can be deadly is called pyometra,” Laird said. “It is a bacterial infection that occurs during their heat cycle and results in the uterus lling with pus. This is a serious condition that requires immediate surgery and hospitalization. Symptoms include fever, lethargy and vaginal discharge that is commonly confused with standard pregnancy discharge.” When preparing your home for a pregnant pet, there are several conditions that must be met to guarantee that your pet is safe and comfortable throughout their pregnancy. “First your dog will need a whelping bed,” Laird said. “This can be a kiddie pool or blocked off area with blankets as long as it is a secure area, provides easily accessible food and water to the mother, and is protected from the elements. The mother will need to be fed high-quality puppy food until her little ones are weaned. Though puppies are not born with their eyes open, they move around a great deal so it is important to encourage the mother to stay with the puppies. Be extremely cautious about heating pads, and if you decide to use one keep them on low at all times. Many puppies are injured and even killed because they do not have the ability to get off of a hot heating pad.” After your pet has given birth it is important that both the mother and puppies be examined by your veterinarian as soon as possible. The vet will be able to ensure the physical condition of the mother and her puppies, as well as make recommendations to provide the best care. Your vet can also set up an appropriate schedule for your new puppies to be dewormed and vaccinated. “After your pet has given birth, keep her conned with the puppies as much as possible and carefully observe her to see if she is gentle with the puppies and allows them to nurse,” Laird said. “If she lays on them, tries to injure them or does not allow them to nurse, you will have to bottle feed the puppies. There is powder milk available through your veterinarian and feed stores that is specically made for puppies. Avoid giving them cow’s milk, as this is not adequate nutrition for the growth and development of a puppy.” About Pet Talk Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

You can imagine my feelings when I recently found out that good old Uncle Sam was checking up on my phone calls, email messages and the rest of the social networking. At rst I was a little suspicious about somebody listening into my phone calls. Then I remembered that back in “the day,” everybody did that. We had what was called the “party line” telephone system. My grandmother, for example, was on the party line, and everybody had a special ring. Grandma’s ring was two long and one short rings. Whenever the telephone rang, dear old grandmother knew who was being called and, being a nosy person, she usually listened into the conversations. It was gossiper’s heaven. Of course, there is a dark side to it. Whenever anybody wanted to send out a rumor, there was always the party line telephone system. My cousin and I got together and cooked up some juicy rumor about old Henry up the valley. Henry had never been married and was probably in his 70s at the time. We started the rumor that Henry had a girlfriend. Before long, this got a little out of control. Everybody believed Henry had a special love interest, and it got to the point that Henry himself believed he had a love interest. I remember going with my grandmother to the grocery store and we happened to run into good old Henry. My grandmother, who was the queen of the gossipers, took this opportunity to speak to Henry. “Oh Henry,” she said as we approached him. “I heard the news that you have a girlfriend. I’m so happy for you. You’ll have to bring her over to my house for coffee and cake some time.” “Thank you, Mary,” Henry said with the biggest smile I have ever seen him wear. “I’ve never been happier.” I never knew how that turned out. The last time I saw Henry, he was smiling and thanking people for congratulating him on having a girlfriend. Some people need to feel happy, I suppose. I guess it is my time to be fooled by my uncle, and I deserve it. I really do not mind if good old Uncle Sam is going to listen in on my social networking “party line,” but I do have a few rules that I would like to establish. Rule No. 1. Uncle Sam, do not repeat anything you hear said on my “party line.” Let’s keep some of that stuff between us. OK? Some of what you’re going to hear may not be altogether, what should I say, truthful. Especially, if you only hear a portion of the conversation. Rule No. 2. If while listening in on the conversation of mine and the other party happens to be some salesman trying to sell me something, please feel free to butt into the conversation. After all, the salesman is trying to take a dollar out of my pocket, and you know how much you want that dollar! Rule No. 3. If the conversation you overhear is concerning you, keep in mind we’re talking about the “other” Uncle Sam. It is hard to keep anything secret these days. In fact, there is not much to keep secret anymore. The only secret I’m really interested in is what God has. His promise to me is, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV). God hears me all the time and knows everything about me. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Robert Russell of Chartwells School Dining and Connie Walker, director of Dining Services for the district, were on hand to present their year end report to the board members. In comparing like for like versus last year, Washington County is within $200 of last years numbers, Walker said. This is in spite of lunch counts being down due to the new USDA meal pattern changes. Walkers report stated that as a result of the USDA changes, the national average shows lunch counts down 4 to 6 percent, with Washington County doing much better at only 2.1 percent. Russell said that next year, the USDA was making changes to breakfast which may result in fewer children eating their rst meal at school. If they didnt like lunch, theyre really not going to like breakfast, Russell said. He said taking protein out of the meals was a trend with the USDA changes. I told them were in the deep South. Down here breakfast is bacon and eggs, not a muf n and granola. Russell said that last year began with the USDA setting a calorie limit on meals. After ve or six months, they got away from that, but by them a lot of kids had quit eating lunches. Im still hearing that children arent getting enough to eat, Board member Susan Roberts said. I want to make sure they are getting enough food. A hungry child is not a good student, Russell said. Roberts asked Russell if Chartwells had contacted the state Department of Agriculture, but Russell said the changes to the menus were federally mandated. We had to cut back due to the federal guidelines, Russell said. It Vernon council to reduce meetingsPanel declines waiving water fee for residentBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON There will be two fewer Vernon City Council meetings a month, beginning in July. Sometimes I feel like were meeting just to meet, Councilman Tray Hawkins said on Monday. The council discussed reducing the number of monthly meetings at its workshop on June 3. We only have four new business items, and we just added one of those, President Tina Sloan noted. I think we can do with just one workshop and one meeting a month, Hawkins said. The council voted to hold their monthly workshop on the third Monday of each month and their regular meeting on the fourth Monday, beginning in July. Well nish up June with two more meetings, City Clerk Dian Hendrix said, then we will meet again on the third Monday in July. The council members also declined a request from a water department customer to adjust her bill by $51.79. The resident said she had left her water hose on for three days by accident. The item was originally in the city councils consent agenda, but Hawkins suggested it be moved out of the consent agenda for separate discussion and See CHARTWELLS A2 Miss Watermelon winnersCo-ed softball tournament against domestic violence at Pals ParkBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force will be holding a co-ed softball tournament at 8 a.m. on Saturday to raise money to build a shelter for battered women and their children. The tournament will be held at Pals Park in Chipley. Were raising money because there isnt a shelter within a hundred miles for a woman and her children to escape an abusive relationship, said Missy Sword Lee, Family Intervention Program Supervisor with Habilitative Services of Northwest Florida. Its bad enough that theyve found themselves in a harmful relationship, they dont need to pack up their things, quit their jobs, pull their kids out of school and have to move all the way to Panama City to nd assistance.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 12, 2013 was very frustrating. This is just another example of the government overreaching, board member Vann Brock said. The Dining Services department was also involved in holiday meals for the community and raised $4,000 for the Washington County Relay for Life, Walker told the board members. We achieved Silver level and were honored with Paint the Town Purple Team of the Year. Walker also noted that Dining Services had added a new Deli Station at Vernon High and Vernon Middle schools, implementing new menus to comply with the USDA regulations, including ax seed pizza crust. The kids seem to like it, Walker said of the ax seed pizza crust. With enough Ranch dressing, its okay, joked Vernon High School Principal Brian Riviere. Greg Kelly of CRA Architects also showed drawings of the proposed Kate M. Smith Elementary School. Superintendent Joe Taylor said the school construction is expected to cost more than $33 million, and will be funded over a threeyear period. Of that $33 million, $7.6 million is the cost of removing the old elementary school, Taylor said. In January, the school board approved the 22-plus acre site between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road as the future home of Kate M. Smith Elementary School. At the January meeting, District Maintenance Director Mike Park reviewed the process the Site Selection Committee had gone through in choosing the new location for the school. This has been an ongoing process of about 20 years, Park said, and over the years, some of the names on the committee changed. In October 2012, the Department of Education visited the elementary school to determine the need for a new facility. Five days later, DOE issued the nding that there was a critical need for a new elementary school in Chipley, Park said. With that information, the selection committee met in late December and again on Jan. 3 to discuss the choice of school site, which came down to either stay at the current location, or move the school to the 22-plus acre tract of land the district owns that stretches between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road. The board selected CRA Architects to create plans for the new school, and Kelly said these documents are necessary to hold our place with the Department of Education. The new school will accommodate 993 students and has 150,000 square feet, Kelly said. Just to give you a number, it is 600 feet from the end of one wing to the other, Taylor said of the drawings. It is a big school, it lls up that lot, Kelly said. Park told the board that the drawings were the result of CRA working with the Kate Smith Elementary staff. They arent just something he drew up, Park said. Kelly said he met with faculty and staff at KMS twice a week for about six weeks in preparing the drawings. Food Services personnel were also involved in the development of the school plans. Were moving ahead, Kelly said, adding that the initial submission of drawings to the Department of Education will be made on June 19. CHARTWELLS from page A1consideration. I dont think we should be changing peoples bills, if we make an exception for one, then we have to do the same for everyone, Hawkins said. If we havent been doing it, I dont think we need to start. This would set a precedent. There was no motion made to approve the change, so the request was denied. Mayor Michelle Cook told the council that the July 4 parade will be held at 4 p.m. with lineup starting at 3 p.m. Were still looking for vendors, she said. They can do anything except food. Cook also said that the city leagues 7-8 year old ball team returned from the Zone 3 Tournament in Bonifay last week with the Sportsmanship trophy. Sign-ups for football and cheer have started and interested parents are asked to contact City Hall at 535-2444 for information. Attorney Michelle Taggart of Chipley also submitted a proposal for services to the council on Monday. The city of Vernon has been without a city attorney since May 14. Sloan said the council members would discuss her proposal at the June 17 workshop and invited Taggart to that meeting. VERNON from page A1will be a concession stand hamburgers and hotdogs, which will be cooked by Community South Credit Union, and t-shirts for sell for $15. Its amazing the support that has been given by the community, said Lee. Weve already sold quite a few t-shirts. She said they were also looking for volunteer scorekeepers and umpires. All our volunteers will get a free lunch, said Lee. The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force holds a regular meeting the second Thursday of every month, alternating between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center. This month it will be held at 12 p.m. at Patillos restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus and a free lunch will be served, she said. Next month we will meet at 6 p.m. at the Student Commons. In September they will visit Washington and Holmes Countys Board of County Commissioners with a proclamation acknowledging September as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In October they will hold a walk/vigil and a concert in memory of loved ones who have been affected by domestic violence. Lee also said that she is looking for anyone who would donate their house or facility as a shelter, explaining that they could receive no state funding until the shelter was successfully up and running for one year. Were a 501(c)(3) not for prot organization and any donation is tax deductible, said Lee. If there was someone that could be so kind as to donate their empty home for a shelter it would be a tremendous blessing. For more information contact Lee at 596-3288.

The event will he at the Holmes County Agriculture Center on U.S. 90 East of Bonifay. The noontime lunch, consisting of home-cooked, covereddish special menus, is open for all to enjoy. The longtime family gettogether is held in honor of Thomas Jefferson Brock, the patriarch of the pioneer Brock family, whose history and heritage runs deep and long in the annals of Washington County lineage. Thomas Jefferson Brock was born May 1, 1856. He married Nancy Jane Yates, whose date of birth was Sept. 29, 1954. The oldest child, of the couples eight daughters and three sons, was Annie Virginia Brock Anderson, who was born on her fathers 19th birthday, May 1, 1875. She married James Henry (Little Jim) Anderson on July 11, 1894, and they reared a large family in the Washington County area. This family was the subject of Perrys Prattle last year, preceding the historic family reunion. It paid honor to the oldest grandson, Kermit Millard Anderson, who was pictured in his World War I uniform, which he proudly wore as a U.S. Army soldier while serving in France during 1917-18. Many descendants of Joshua (Josh) Brock and Syrilda Yates Brock join in this reunion. He is the brother of Thomas Jefferson Brock, and she is the sister of Nancy Jane Yates Brock. This years column spotlights Samuel Gadiah (Sam) Brock, the middle son of Thomas Jefferson Brock. He was born Dec. 30, 1893 and lived his entire life in the Hinson Cross Roads section of the county. He married Comilla Hall Brock, a Ponce de Leon native, on Dec. 7, 1913. Sam Brock reportedly worked along with her brothers in logging. In addition to working together, the Brocks and Halls visited each other often, attending church and sings together after the Douglas Ferry, crossing the Choctawhatchee River at Hinson Cross Roads, allowed easy access to Red Bay, Ponce de Leon and other communities on the west side of the river. Born to this couple were sons Donnie Brock, Willard Brock and Raz Brock. The two daughters were Blondell Brock Smith and Trudell Brock Worthington. All the children have reared families in the Washington County area. The writer is indebted to the youngest daughter, Trudell, for writing the full story of her parents, which is contained in the Heritage of Washington County book, pages 161-62. She is the only survivor of the children of Sam and Comilla. She graduated from Vernon High School in 1944, along with the Prattler, and has always served as my contact person for history of her family. Trudell is one of the six surviving granddaughters of the honoree. Others are Corine Brock George, daughter of son Thomas Jefferson (Jeff) Brock Jr. and Fannie McKeithen Brock; Mary L. Anderson Vaughn, daughter of Annie Jane Brock Anderson and John Henry Anderson; and the three surviving daughters, Frances Harrell Myers, Janie Harrell Kendrick and Myrtle Harrell Davis, daughters of O.D. Harrell Brock, who married W. Alto Harrell. Some of the offspring of Sam and Comilla left the area for employment. Practically all of them have now returned to live near the homestead in retirement. On April 12, it was my privilege to talk to grandson Dana Brock and his wife, Janet, and to granddaughter-in law Penny Brock, descendants of the honored family members featured this year. A special reminder was extended to them to attend the June 15 reunion, with all expressing intentions to attend. My connection to this gathering of renown goes to my paternal grandmother, Hannah Malinda Brock, born March 2, 1879, who married James Thomas Wells on Sept. 18, 1894, and was the fourth daughter born in the sequence. Their four sons and two daughters were also born and reared in Washington County. Attending the Brock reunion was a must among all the offspring in my family. In our household, it was not done as a drudgery, nor duty, but something everyone seemed to enjoy. It was a fun time for all the families, getting together and keeping in touch. Some members moved away from the county early in their married life are reared families elsewhere, and the reunion was their only opportunity of keeping in contact. My father, Hugh Wells, took pride in having ripe watermelons ready at the Brock reunion for Ned and Roy Anderson, his cousins who were reared in Pensacola. In later years, I told my dad he was keeping in good with his Pensacola kinsmen knowing he would probably be calling on them to help him sell his crop of fresh, homemade sugar cane syrup come fall. There were also cousins in the Tampa area that had to keep on his side as he was known to try his skills at selling the new crop of syrup that far away. My family and I eagerly look forward to seeing and visiting each and every one at the annual Brock reunion. My personal invitation to prospective visitors usually includes that we are short on formality, but long on hugs, friendship and wonderful food! Then I may add that visitors can expect to get a strong neck hug rst, and then the person hugging will ask your name. Allow me to personally invite you to our family reunion for an experience you will long remember. See you all next week.Studies show vegetarians live longerDear editor, This weeks issue of Time Magazine brings more documentation that vegetarians live longer than their meat-chomping friends. A six-year study of 70,000 Seventh-Day Adventists, published in the current issue of American Medical Associations prestigious Journal of Internal Medicine, found that vegetarians and vegans have a 12 percent lower risk of death. This is but the latest evidence linking meat consumption to diseases that kill 1.3 million Americans annually. It comes only two months after a discovery at the Cleveland Clinic that carnitine, contained in all meat products, is a major factor in heart failure. Similarly, an Oxford University study of almost 45,000 adults in last Januarys American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found vegetarians were 32 percent less likely to suffer from heart disease than people who ate meat and sh. A Harvard University study of 37,698 men and 83,644 women, in last years Archives of Internal Medicine, concluded meat consumption raises the risk of total, heart and cancer mortality. Indeed, each of us can nd his own fountain of youth by adopting a meatand dairy-free diet. An internet search on vegan recipes or live vegan provides ample resources. Sincerely,Hugh CorneliusChipleyRecently, I posted on Facebook about the pleasure of sitting on the front porch at my old home place with niece Anita Russ Falmia, her husband, Pat, and our son and daughter-inlaw, Hiram and Judy. Wilhemina Belcer commented how that brought back memories of her childhood and how she had fond memories of sitting on the front porch listening to the night sounds. In her and my childhood, the front porch served as the social center of the home. At our home, it served many other uses. Because our front porch, which my Grandpa Wells called the piazza, faced west, it wasnt used much in the afternoons except to store the hampers of peas waiting to be carried to Panama City and Panama City Beach or some other destination. In late summer, it held the picked cotton waiting to go to the gin. However, the north end where the swing was located was still used to entertain drop by guests, mostly kin folks. It was also Mamas escape from the hot kitchen after the noon meal was served to the working men and boys. In later years, she liked to entertain her guests like granddaughter in-law Judy or perhaps Melba Harris for girl talk. Many summer mornings found Mama and us girls plus Grandma Wells, cousin Kathleen, Aunt Annie Wells or anybody else available on the front porch shelling peas to cook for the innumerable people who would nd their way to her table about noon. Sometimes, when the eld hands came in for lunch or when visitors dropped by, the front porch would also be used to cut and serve a watermelon. We ate it in the yard with the juice running down our chins, spitting the seeds on the ground for the chickens, which ran loose, to eat. It amazes me now that people pay a premium price for free-range chicken and eggs. I never considered them very appetizing. In my years as a newlywed living in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Terrel Creel, their front porch also was used as a social gathering place. While Mr. Creel used the southern side porch and its swing for lounging, Mrs. Creel entertained several of the town ladies either on the front screen porch or just outside on the narrow lawn by the street on the east of their home. Their home was located just across the street north from the old jail, which is now parking for First Federal/Bank of Bonifay. Many afternoons would nd several ladies to include Mrs. Vella Harrell, Mrs. Stella Creels sister, Mrs. H.B. Douglas, Mrs. Bartow Driver, Mrs. Dr. Vara and the three sisters, Mrs. Rosa Young, Mrs. Daisy Young and Mrs. Ada Brett, cooling in the shade of the great oaks that used to line both sides of that corner. As a 20-yearold I often sat and listened to their conversations. I learned a lot about what was going on about town. Some might have called it gossip, but it was not vicious, nor particular juicy. But it helped me as a new resident to know the connection between families, who was married to whom, who had a baby too few months from the wedding date and other important stuff. After I had lived there for perhaps a year, Mrs. Creel, whom I consider my greatest mentor, told me she and Miss Vella had decided I was like them. I took that as a high compliment. It meant I was not common, a word she used to describe people she felt didnt measure up to her standards. Though neither she nor her sister were snobs, like my mother, they knew there were people with whom we didnt associate. If they needed help, help them. Dont expect to make them friends. With all the hitchhikers, drifters and strays my Dad brought into our home, I think Id already learned that. Whether the homes front entry was designated as a porch, a veranda, or a piazza (and I never knew why my grandpa used that term) they dont serve the same function as in years past. In the s the breezeway connecting the house and the garage became popular. With their jalousie windows and long narrow space, they never lent themselves to sitting and shelling peas. With the addition of air conditioning to our homes, we seldom sit outside. Airconditioned Florida rooms have become popular. Beautifully designed patios encourage outdoor living, but nothing will take the place of the country house front porch where you sit out and listen to the frogs, crickets, cicadas, hoot or screech or barn owls, whippoorwill or chuck-wills-widow. Anita reminded me of her late dad, James Russ, as she pointed out the difference the other night. I never get too old to learn something new, and sitting in the dark, quiet, front porch is a good place to learn.

Lawry gave a brief history of how 4-L Diamond S Rodeo Company was formed and what it means for this years upcoming Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. Lawry conrmed the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo held in Bonifay every October was the largest rodeo in this part of the country. Most rodeos in this area go for two days tops, but to go for three days straight is rare for this area, he said. This rodeo is also nationally known for its grass and Grand Entry. The only other grass arena is in Oregon. Grass had its advantages and disadvantages, Lawry explained. A lot of riders and participants dont like grass because theres not as much grip as dirt, thats why barrel racing isnt done as much as it used to at the rodeo, he said. Personally, I like it because I nd it more of a challenge, and I like a good challenge. He gave an update on the rodeo circuit, saying the rules had changed as far as how many rodeos count towards the national competition. It used to be that you could go to as many rodeos as you wanted to, and it would count towards the nationals, Lawry said. Now theyve limited it to 85 rodeos, so the participants have been a little more selective of where they ride. Lawry also gave a brief history of himself and how the 4-L Diamond S Rodeo company came to the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. My family was in the cattle business, and I learned to rope at that time, he said. Eventually I got good enough to compete, and since there was no rodeo around that area, I had to leave home. I was blessed with a Godgiven talent to earn money competing in rodeos, and I competed everywhere I could. He said he graduated from college one week, got married the next and was enlisted in the army the next week. Due to failing the health exam I was back in the circuit, Lawry said. I got my Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association card and was a nalist in the California rodeo in 1981. I went to all the biggest rodeos in America and never knew I would become a contractor one day. He said it shouldnt have surprised him to be getting into the business because he was familiar with working with all of the biggest rodeos in America and how they were operated. I eventually bought a contract from someone selling their rodeo, and before I knew it, the rodeo expanded from ve shows a year to 15 and 20 shows a year and have been doing it ever since, Lawry said. Our bulls went to the national competition in Las Vegas, and in 2007, we teamed up with Diamond S Rodeo Co. The 4-L was added on and stood for our family of four Lawrys. He said it was a good partnership because they raised a lot of bulls and need a place to buck bulls and I needed bulls to buck. Were a family-oriented business with very little down time in the shows, he said. A lot of contractors dont care about timed events, but I do. I also thank you for all of the support that has been shown in this area. Youve been a great bunch of people with great crowds.Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo largest in areaPHo O To O S byBY CEci CI Lia IA SpSP Ea A RS | The NewsAbove: Charlie Lawry with 4-L Diamond S Rodeo Co. was the guest speaker at Bonifay Kiwanis Clubs June 5 meeting.

Sen. Don Gaetz, RNiceville, said the chair and vice chair of the Senate Gaming Committee will hold hearings around the state, likely starting in September, listening to those with a dog in the ght. Gaetz said lawmakers will get plenty of feedback from big gaming interests, but he thinks all parties should get a say. I want to make sure that people like law enforcement and the religious community that they have an opportunity to be heard, he said, also noting anti-gaming groups, like No Casinos, should get a chance to speak. Gaetz has never been reticent about his antipathy toward gaming, and his opinion is unlikely to change. Still, when meeting with The News Herald editorial board Wednesday, he said the states disjointed policies on the industry need to change. He wants comprehensive legislation, to put the issue to rest for a while, so the Legislature isnt constantly addressing it year in, year out. The problem weve had is that theres never been a real policy on gaming; theres been instead a kind of Band-Aid, patchwork, baling wire and chewing gum approach, he said. Its been a series of reactionary pieces of legislation, Gaetz said. The state enters into a compact with the Seminoles; then racinos (pari-mutuels that offer table games) say theres a competitive imbalance. A x is made, but another imbalance is claimed elsewhere. Its always a kind of reactive, defensive addition of a shanty or lean-to onto what is (in place), as opposed to stepping back and seeing what ought to be or what might be, he said. Gaetz also likes to point out gambling is ensconced in the state, frequently pointing to the state-sanctioned Florida Lottery, calling it a numbers racket. His meaning: Gambling isnt going anywhere. Questions remainBut plenty of questions remain: whether Miami would be allowed to bring in destination casinos, whether pari-mutuels should meet race minimums to have table games, and whether local referendums can expand gambling. The Legislature also must renegotiate the Seminole compact, which regulates gaming on Seminole territory. Next year, comprehensive legislation will hinge on the $388,845 study the Legislature commissioned. The New Jerseybased Spectrum Gaming Group is conducting the two-part analysis. The nal reports are due July 1 and Oct. 1. Lawmakers have praised the plan, but some are more skeptical about the study, fearing lawmakers might lean too heavily on it, shielding them from criticism. That kind of takes the ball out of their hands, said Stockton Hess, president and general manager of Ebro Greyhound Park, which has announced plans for a multimilliondollar expansion if the state expands gaming. The ipside, though, is some lawmakers might be so dug in that no study could change their position. The entire Bay County delegation opposes expanding gambling.Wait-and-seeOut in Ebro, Hess is taking a wait-and-see approach. Were in the same mode as the Legislature lets see what this studys going to bring, he said. Hess likely wont waste his time asking lawmakers to expand gambling, either. The Legislature already is aware of the pari-mutuel industry and its desires for more gaming options, he said. They know what its going to take to maintain this industry and this industrys employees, he said. In January 2012, Washington County approved slot machines at the track, but state Attorney General Pam Bondi shut that down quickly. She issued an opinion requiring the Legislature to rst approve any countywide referendum before its voted on locally. The other option is to amend the state Constitution. Its been more than a year since the vote, but there is still plenty of interest in slots. We get calls every day, Hess said. We get calls not only from locals voters that want to know whats going on, why dont we have them; we also get calls from visitors to the area that think that we have slot machines because other tracks that they visit do in other states.State Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, wouldnt give a direct answer on whether she supports gamblings expansion through a local referendum. She staunchly opposes gambling but said, I have never come out against a local referendum.But, Coley said, the referendum could be crucial if theres an effort to expand gambling statewide. Shes also not ready to bore down and discuss the issues that likely will be hammered out in the legislation next year. She wants full information before going down that road. Lets see what the study shows and then we will decide how to best address issues, Coley said. She added: Theres nothing for me to make my mind up about right now because I dont know what were even going to consider.Swift actionThe Legislature has shown it can take swift, decisive action on gambling when it wants to. It rapidly banned Internet cafes during the recent session after the Allied Veterans scandal broke, resulting in the lieutenant governors resignation. S tate Rep.  Jimmy Pa tronis, R-Panama City, was a cosponsor on that bill, and he touted its potential impact on future legislation. With the sweepstakes legislation that I sponsored along with Rep. (Carlos) Trujillo last year, there was swift action. I think that this will make those interested in expansion of new gaming very cautious in their proposed ideas, he said via email. Patronis also conrmed he doesnt support any expansion of gambling, even by local referendum. Asked if the study could contain anything that would change his mind, Patronis said I have no idea what will be suggested in the ndings. Im sure it will be an interesting read.Gaming study, hearings coming The problem weve had is that theres never been a real policy on gaming; theres been instead a kind of Band-Aid, patchwork, baling wire and chewing gum approach.Sen.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Where has all the bait gone? Primarily, cigar minnows. Of course herring are as popular as cigar minnows, but they also have pulled a disappearing act. On Monday, a wad of herring showed up at the bell buoy, but that has been it. Until this year you could pull up to any buoy in the pass using a sibiki rig and catch a livewell full of bait in no time. Not this year. Hardtails are plentiful in the pass and in the Gulf, but little else. Most of the time you might see bait on top of the water around the buoys if the tide is coming in through the pass. When that tide turns and heads back out the bait goes with it. When you sh for bait, remember to check the tide; incoming tide is what you want. Often you can use your sounding machine and nd cigar minnows on the bottom on the sides of the channel in about 20 feet of water. So far this year that has not been the case. So the next time you head out snapper shing you might stop at the tackle store or at the live bait barge and ll up because you arent going to have much success around the buoys with gold hooks and sibiki rigs. Amberjack season went out the same day snapper season came in, but the word doesnt seem to have gotten around. We have three different types of jacks we generally catch around here: amberjack, lesser amberjack and rudder sh. The greater amberjack and the rudder sh are the two jacks that are easy to identify. The lesser amberjack Im not sure anyone can tell what it looks like. The lesser amberjack has a different dorsal n con guration and of course it is a smaller jack compared to a 30-inch greater amberjack. But not all greater amberjack are large. Some are as small as the lesser jack and therefore hard to identify. Right now you can catch and keep 5 lesser amberjack of between 1422 inches if you are brave enough to try and identify one. Banded rudder sh are the easier to identify. They are a more rounded jack and they also have to be between 14-22 inches long.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net IT OUT: See more outdoors photos and recipes at newsherald. com/sections/ outdoors By TINA HARBUCK654-8440|@DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com What better place to set a world shing record than in the Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village? Michael Stough of Cincinnati, Ohio, did just that while y shing aboard the Anastasia with Capt. Tony Davis on Tuesday. His pending world record red snapper, a 9.5-pounder, was caught on a 6-pound tippet. The current record on the books for red snapper on 6-pound tippet is 7.13 pounds caught by Ched Cooke in 2010. I wonder if he (Ched Cooke) had a cold chill run across his back a couple of hours ago, Stough jokingly said Tuesday afternoon after they weighed his snapper at HarborWalk Marina. This is not Stoughs rst time to y sh for snapper out of Destin, nor his rst world record. Last year, while shing aboard the Anastasia, he set the world record for 16-pound tippet with a 12.6-pound red snapper, and the record for 8pound line with a 12.1-pounder. I sh all over the world, but Destin is by far the best place to catch red snapper, Stough said. Stough, who has been chartering trips aboard the Anastasia for more than a decade, set aside ve days to try and set a few world records. His plans were to catch the largest snapper on 12, 6, 4 and 2 pound tippet. On Tuesday, day three of his shing expedition, they targeted snapper using 12and 6-pound tippet. We broke off about a dozen red snapper, as well as released about 10 small ones, said Capt. Davis, before Stough pulled in the winning keeper. Fly shing for red snapper, a bottom dwelling sh, can be a challenge. Davis explained that they chum the sh to the top then Stough goes to work with the y. Stough said he likes to use a Clouser y and he set aside about six dozen for his time in Destin. They hit a y real well, Stough said. But y shing is demanding. Stough explained that red snapper are programmed to go to protective cover once they take the y. With a regular rod and reel, an angler could hoist a snapper in the boat in a couple of minutes. But on this rod it took about 25 minutes, Stough said. You have to be gentle and not much drag. Fly shing is more nesse than brawn, he said. And it takes a lot of patience on the part of the captain as well. The captain has the dif culty of holding up on a spot and wind is always a factor. But Stough spoke highly of Davis and the Destin captains. The professionalism of the eet here is great, Stough said. And Destin is a place where you can still have your catch cooked up. This is exciting, pretty incredible, Stough said, once his catch was weighed and measured in at, 26 long, and 19 around the girth. The crew had plans to go back out a couple of more days, weather permitting. I want to own every line class for red snapper, Stough said. And Im slowly but surely getting there. Ohio man pulls in another possible world record TINA HARBUCK | The Destin LogTop: Michael Stough measures the girth of the red snapper. The snapper measured 26 long, and 19 around the girth.

Wing was one of several master-level instructors invited to teach at the Korean Martial Arts Festival in Crestview on April 20, an event he has been invited to teach at for several years. The weekend-long annual event featured 21 master-level instructors from across the world who conducted seminars at Gordon Martial Arts in Crestview. Thomas Gordon, owner of Gordon Martial Arts, is also a Crestview City Council member. As one of the best kickers Ive ever come across, Master Wing normally teaches a kicking seminar at the Korean Martial Art Festival where people come from Canada, Australia, England, and all over the USA, said Gordon. For about ve years, my buddy and fellow martial artist, Gregory Bledsoe and I drove 130ish miles once a week to train with Master Wing. Sometimes communities are unaware of a jewel they have teaching in their area. The Korean Martial Art Festival is hosted at Gordon Martial Arts and was ranked by Black Belt Magazine as one of the 10 Most Do Martial Art Events and brings people from all over the world. Two martial arts students said recent seminars helped them improve their technique and inspired continued education in combat practices. The more I attend these conferences or festivals, the more I thirst for knowledge, said Crestview resident Dr. Alberto Barbon. Learning about various techniques, including forms, sparring and weapons training, reminded him you can always improve on what youre doing, he said. Crestview resident Angela Mobley agreed. She began practicing martial arts nine months ago following her childrens participation in the program. Its something we can do together, its exercise, its learning something new, she said.

By HAZeEL TIsSONSpecial to ExtraBONI BONIFA A Y Mayor Lawrence Cloud proclaimed the week of June 2-8 as National Garden Week, and Bonifay Garden Club celebrated with a number of activities. National Garden Clubs, in an effort to acknowledge the importance of gardening and the numerous contributions of gardeners, have designated that week. Under the leadership of new Bonifay Garden Club president Adonna Bartlett, small teacup plants are being distributed to various businesses as well as to the public library and the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce. A banner, courtesy of Sims Signs, announces Garden Week. Colorful ribbons along Waukesha Street, courtesy of Bonifay Florist, reminded visitors of the special observance. Several planters, which the city of Bonifay previously bought, have been placed at the intersection of State Road 79 and U.S. 90. Garden Club members planted them with help from a donation by Wal-Mart in the amount of $50 for potting soil and fertilizer. The pots will be an ongoing project in cooperation with the city crew, who has pledged to keep them watered. Another new ongoing project is the planting and maintaining of the serenity garden at Bonifay Nursing and Rehabilitation. DiAnn Shores and Barlett are carrying on that project. An Intermediate Garden Club at Bonifay Middle School is sponsored by Bonifay Garden Club. Hazel Tison and Susan Pittman lead this with help from others. In May, 35 sixth grade students were able to decorate and take home a bird house made from recycled cans, thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Ricky Bush. They proudly showed the gardens each of Dawn Barones sixth grade class grows on the school campus. To celebrate National Garden Week, the Intermediate Gardeners will have a eld trip to Tisons Blueberry Farm for a tour and a picnic. Each student will be able to pick a pint of berries. Bonifay Garden Club hopes this emphasis on National Garden Week will remind the public to be more aware of the benets of gardening in beautifying and protecting the environment, increasing the health of all creatures and the rewards that come from challenging and productive work.Kiwanis Club of Bonifays treasurer Celena Medley presented a $150 donation to the Holmes County 4-H Program through the University of Florida IFAS Extension on behalf of the Kiwanis Club at its May 30 meeting.CEc C ILIA SPEARs S | Extra KIWANIsS DONATEsS TO HOLMEsS cCOUNTyY 4-HBonifay Garden Club celebrates NNational Garden WeekCEc C ILIA SPEARs S | ExtraUnder the leadership of the new Bonifay Garden Club president, Adonna Bartlett, small teacup plants are distributed to various businesses as well as to the public library and the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce in commemoration of National Garden Week.SPEc C IAL TO EE XTRA Makayla sits with her big brother, Landon.OSteens welcome baby girlWhite graduates with juris doctorate

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 866-314-3769 By RANDAL YAKEY522-5108 | @ryakey ryakey@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY As she peered out across Pretty Bayou from behind the big glass window in her living room, Sandra Wilson contemplated another long, 10-hour study session for the bar exam and a new career as a lawyer. But, Sandra Wilson is no average law school graduate. The 70-year-old grandmother with three grown children is venturing into a new chapter in her life when most people are contemplating a rocking chair. But, that isnt Sandra Wilson. I love the law, said Wilson, whose family are the proprietors of Wilson Funeral Home in Panama City. Wilson graduated from Florida State University in 2009 after years ago leaving college and raising a family. She entered law school at Faulkner University in Alabama in 2010 and graduated in May. Tackling law school was a personal challenge to Wilson. She moved to Montgomery, Ala., to attend Faulkner. I lived there for three years, Wilson said. I never lived by myself. I left my parents home when I married my husband (Steve). Wilson said living away from her family was an adventure at times. It was amazing doing things that were foreign to me, she said. So, why did she subject herself to the tough grind of law school? It is not for monetary benet, Wilson said. Instead, Wilson said, she wants to help others and specialize in childrens law, possibly as a child advocate. I really want to do something in the public interest. I really want my degree to be used as a ministry, Wilson said. Even while completing her undergraduate degree, Wilson said, she continually gravitated toward law as a subject. I found that every time I was writing a paper I was writing about the law. I would always gravitate towards the law. Then when a couple of classmates of mine decided to go to law school, I thought, I wish I could do t hat, Wilson said. Wilson said when she headed off to law school she was given an iPhone. Her husband, Steve, asked her if she even knew how to use the device. Soon, Steve Wilson was getting on the technology bandwagon. Not only did I have an iPhone, but he got an iPhone, she said. Wilson hopes to take the bar exam this summer, and upon passing, get a job. Steve Wilson said he has stood behind his wife all the way in her pursuit of a law degree. We had been married for 47 years and she put up with me, Steve Wilson said. If she was going to go, I was going to support her to the very end. The Wilsons celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary June 1. Many people see their pet as their own child, but what do you do when you nd that your little one will soon be having children of their own? Knowing how to care for your pet during pregnancy and after childbirth is essential for any responsible pet owner. So how do you tell if your pet is expecting? Some telltale signs to watch for in a pregnant dog is lethargy, not wanting to eat as much, not playing as much as usual and enlarged nipples, said Jean Laird, veterinary technician at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVM). These are attributed to a change in hormones and milk production. Even if you are sure there is no way a dog has gotten in your yard, it is best to take her to the veterinarian to conrm if she is pregnant. Intact male dogs are surprisingly persistent when a female is in heat. While there is a pregnancy test for pets, a small litter may result in a false negative. If you believe your pet is pregnant, the rst thing you should do is take her in to see a veterinarian. Certain conditions exist that may appear to be pregnancy but in reality are alarming and may even be life threatening. One condition that can be deadly is called pyometra, Laird said. It is a bacterial infection that occurs during their heat cycle and results in the uterus lling with pus. This is a serious condition that requires immediate surgery and hospitalization. Symptoms include fever, lethargy and vaginal discharge that is commonly confused with standard pregnancy discharge. When preparing your home for a pregnant pet, there are several conditions that must be met to guarantee that your pet is safe and comfortable throughout their pregnancy. First your dog will need a whelping bed, Laird said. This can be a kiddie pool or blocked off area with blankets as long as it is a secure area, provides easily accessible food and water to the mother, and is protected from the elements. The mother will need to be fed high-quality puppy food until her little ones are weaned. Though puppies are not born with their eyes open, they move around a great deal so it is important to encourage the mother to stay with the puppies. Be extremely cautious about heating pads, and if you decide to use one keep them on low at all times. Many puppies are injured and even killed because they do not have the ability to get off of a hot heating pad. After your pet has given birth it is important that both the mother and puppies be examined by your veterinarian as soon as possible. The vet will be able to ensure the physical condition of the mother and her puppies, as well as make recommendations to provide the best care. Your vet can also set up an appropriate schedule for your new puppies to be dewormed and vaccinated. After your pet has given birth, keep her conned with the puppies as much as possible and carefully observe her to see if she is gentle with the puppies and allows them to nurse, Laird said. If she lays on them, tries to injure them or does not allow them to nurse, you will have to bottle feed the puppies. There is powder milk available through your veterinarian and feed stores that is specically made for puppies. Avoid giving them cows milk, as this is not adequate nutrition for the growth and development of a puppy.About Pet TalkPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

You can imagine my feelings when I recently found out that good old Uncle Sam was checking up on my phone calls, email messages and the rest of the social networking. At rst I was a little suspicious about somebody listening into my phone calls. Then I remembered that back in the day, everybody did that. We had what was called the party line telephone system. My grandmother, for example, was on the party line, and everybody had a special ring. Grandmas ring was two long and one short rings. Whenever the telephone rang, dear old grandmother knew who was being called and, being a nosy person, she usually listened into the conversations. It was gossipers heaven. Of course, there is a dark side to it. Whenever anybody wanted to send out a rumor, there was always the party line telephone system. My cousin and I got together and cooked up some juicy rumor about old Henry up the valley. Henry had never been married and was probably in his 70s at the time. We started the rumor that Henry had a girlfriend. Before long, this got a little out of control. Everybody believed Henry had a special love interest, and it got to the point that Henry himself believed he had a love interest. I remember going with my grandmother to the grocery store and we happened to run into good old Henry. My grandmother, who was the queen of the gossipers, took this opportunity to speak to Henry. Oh Henry, she said as we approached him. I heard the news that you have a girlfriend. Im so happy for you. Youll have to bring her over to my house for coffee and cake some time. Thank you, Mary, Henry said with the biggest smile I have ever seen him wear. Ive never been happier. I never knew how that turned out. The last time I saw Henry, he was smiling and thanking people for congratulating him on having a girlfriend. Some people need to feel happy, I suppose. I guess it is my time to be fooled by my uncle, and I deserve it. I really do not mind if good old Uncle Sam is going to listen in on my social networking party line, but I do have a few rules that I would like to establish. Rule No. 1. Uncle Sam, do not repeat anything you hear said on my party line. Lets keep some of that stuff between us. OK? Some of what youre going to hear may not be altogether, what should I say, truthful. Especially, if you only hear a portion of the conversation. Rule No. 2. If while listening in on the conversation of mine and the other party happens to be some salesman trying to sell me something, please feel free to butt into the conversation. After all, the salesman is trying to take a dollar out of my pocket, and you know how much you want that dollar! Rule No. 3. If the conversation you overhear is concerning you, keep in mind were talking about the other Uncle Sam. It is hard to keep anything secret these days. In fact, there is not much to keep secret anymore. The only secret Im really interested in is what God has. His promise to me is, Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV). God hears me all the time and knows everything about me.
