Town council members voted to submit the application for the $600,000 grant during a March 3 called meeting, identifying the town’s short-term objectives as constructing a new re station near the existing station on Second Avenue and to “explore other possible resources for the purpose of improving the way of life for all citizens, especially those who live in deteriorated housing and neighborhoods.” The application is expected to be led March 12. In other business, council members voted to allow an outside committee to make a recommendation for the hiring of a town clerk to replace outgoing clerk JoAnn Hayes. “By narrowing down the applicants and letting the committee make a recommendation, it won’t be personal for or against any one candidate,” Mayor BJ Phillips said. “We will then vote to accept or not accept the committee’s recommendation.” Of nine applicants, council members chose ve to be interviewed by the committee. Interviews are expected to begin within the month.

A gathering of family and friends gathered in Vernon to mark what would have been Wright’s 26th birthday last Friday, Feb. 28. Amid an emotional candlelight vigil, prayers and hymns, her mother, Kim Wright, issued a plea. “Someone knows something,” Wright said. “We feel like we know who’s involved and want them to do the right thing. Maybe something happened (to Britney) by accident, and they panicked, but it’s time they came forward.” “We can’t spend holidays with her, and we can’t even visit a grave. Our family needs some closure.” Britney last was seen near her home in July 2007. By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com GRACEVILLE — A routine food safety inspection led to the arrest of three suspects on animal cruelty charges, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. According to investigative reports, about 90 dairy cattle at the Wild Rose Dairy, 1230 Underwood Road in Graceville, were classi ed as neglected and in poor physical condition. Inspectors detected unsanitary conditions at the dairy during a routine inspection Feb. 11 and immediately issued a stop sale order for violations of the requisite food safety regulations. A veterinarian at the department con rmed the poor condition of the cattle was because of neglect, and Agricultural Law Enforcement initiated an investigation. Law enforcement of cers transferred the remaining dairy cattle that were able to travel to another local dairy Feb. 17. The livestock will remain there, where they can live under proper care until the court can determine ownership and a long-term care solution. Agricultural Law Enforcement obtained arrest warrants through the State Attorney’s Of ce for the 14th Judicial Circuit Court on Feb. 27, for the three individuals responsible for managing Wild Rose Dairy, where the dairy cattle were neglected. Arrested were Joseph Dodge Harvey Clark, 75; Richard Kevin Clark, 51; and Nikki Slininger, 31. The trio is charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a third degree felony, and unlawful disposal of animal carcasses, a second-degree misdemeanor. The suspects were booked at the Holmes County Jail, and bond was set at $10,000. At the time of the arrest, Agricultural Law Enforcement of cers said they found Slininger in possession of methamphetamine and charged her with possession of a controlled substance, a third-degree felony. “I’m proud of the collaborative effort by our staff and law enforcement of cers. Inspectors discovered the poor conditions at this dairy during a routine inspection and reported their observations to law enforcement,” Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam said. “As a result, we were able to hold these individuals responsible for the harm they caused and, more importantly, nd new accommodations for the animals.” 3 charged in Holmes County for animal cruelty See WRIGHT A2 ‘Someone knows something’ Tax collectors could soon process applications for concealed carry permits By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com Residents of Washington and Holmes counties soon could be among those nding the concealed carry permitting process more convenient. A Senate committee already has passed legislation that would allow applicants to apply for or renew permits at their tax collector’s of ce. Currently, those desiring to apply for a concealed carry permit must drive to one of the state’s eight regional ofces, the nearest being in Tallahassee. The measure as currently written would allow tax collectors to charge a “convenience fee” on top of the current permit cost, and $22 could be added to the CONCEALED CONVENIENCE See CONCEALED A2 BRITNEY WRIGHT Years after her daughter’s disappearance, mother urges witnesses to step up DUCKS UNLIMITED CHIPLEY — Chipley’s Ducks Unlimited organization will present its annual banquet and fundraiser Thursday at the Washington County Agriculture Center.

Permits still would be issued through the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service’s Division of Licensing. The department also would continue to handle the re quired background checks. The tax collectors’ role would simply be to expe dite the process by accept ing applications, an added duty which would come at the request of the tax collector. The proposal has heavy backing from the National Rie Association — and interest from both Wash ington County Tax Collec tor Ken Naker and Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell. ”This is an effort to make permitting more ac cessible,” Naker said. “I’ve already had people ex press interest in it, and as long as it helps the citizens of Washington County, I’m all for it. We can take the workload as long as we can integrate it into what we already have and it not cost the taxpayers. “I just don’t want to see any extra burden put on the county. I haven’t gotten the nuts and bolts of it yet, but more and more people are getting concealed per mits, and if it’s something they’re doing already, then the fees could be kept local instead of (the applicant) having to drive 100 miles to get it taken care of. My goal is for the people here to receive the best service they possibly can.” Holmes County Tax Col leton Harry Bell agrees. “Tax collectors are always looking for more ways to serve citizens,” Bell said. “That’s the focus of our association.” Bell also pointed out smaller Florida counties might have an advantage over larger counties when it comes to implementing the service. “Because we’re a rural area, our ofces are crosstrained,” he said. “We merged last November and already issue driver’s licenses here. We have a pool of talented people working in this ofce, and this will be just one more thing added to their abilities. “We’re already getting positive feedback on the idea,” he added. “The only problem I foresee is if there is some type of equipment we have to purchase up front, prior to having any income from the applica tions. There’s no guaran tees that people will em brace this, and if there is a large investment, that will have to be thoroughly investigated.” According to the propos al, electronic ngerprint scanners valued at roughly $15,000 would be provided, with tax collectors respon sible for maintenance. Residents still can ap ply in person at the re gional eld ofces and by mail-in without the added convenience fees. According to the Wash ington County Sheriff’s Of ce, none of her belongings — including her clothing, purse and cell phone — were taken from her home at the time of her disappearance. Crimestoppers is offer ing a reward of $1,000 for credible information in the case, but Wright’s family is trying to raise that amount in hopes it will encourage someone to come forward with information. Donations can be made to the reward money fund by calling Wright at 334-648-8877. Anyone with any informa tion about this case is asked to contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Ofce at 638-6111 or Crimestoppers at 638-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous.

Washington County News | A3 Wednesday, March 5, 2014 KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — In a somber show of U.S. sup port for Ukraine’s new leadership, Secretary of State John Kerry walked the streets Tuesday where more than 80 anti-govern ment protesters were killed last month, and promised beseeching crowds that American aid is on the way. Kerry met in Ukraine with the new government’s acting president, prime minister, foreign minister and top parliamentary of cials. Speaking to report ers afterward, Kerry urged Russian President Vladi mir Putin to stand down and said the U.S. is looking for ways to de-escalate the mounting tensions. “It is clear that Russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further,” Kerry said. “It is not appro priate to invade a country, and at the end of a barrel of a gun dictate what you are trying to achieve. That is not 21st-century, G-8, major nation behavior.” Kerry made a pointed distinction between the Ukrainian government and Putin’s. “The contrast really could not be clearer: deter mined Ukranians demon strating strength through unity, and the Russian government out of excus es, hiding its hand behind falsehoods, intimidation and provocations. In the hearts of Ukranians and the eyes of the world, there is nothing strong about what Russia is doing.” He said the penalties against Russia are “not something we are seeking to do, it is something Rus sia is pushing us to do.” President Barack Obama, visiting a Washing ton, DC school to highlight his new budget, said his administration’s push to punish Putin put the U.S. on “the side of history that, I think, more and more peo ple around the world deeply believe in, the principle that a sovereign people, an in dependent people, are able to make their own deci sions about their own lives. And, you know, Mr. Putin can throw a lot of words out there, but the facts on the ground indicate that right now he is not abiding by that principle.” The Obama administra tion announced a $1 billion energy subsidy package in Washington as Kerry was arriving in Kiev. The fast-moving developments came as the United States readied economic sanctions amid worries that Moscow was ready to stretch its military reach further into the mainland of the former Soviet republic. Kerry headed straight to Institutska Street at the start of an hours-long visit intended to bolster the new government that took over just a week ago when Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych ed. Kerry placed a bouquet of red roses, and twice the Roman Catholic secretary of state made the sign of the cross at a shrine set up to memo rialize protesters who were killed during mid-February riots. “We’re concerned very much. We hope for your help, we hope for your as sistance,” a woman shout ed as Kerry walked down a misty street lined with tires, plywood, barbed wire and other remnants of the barricades that protesters had stood up to try to keep Yanukovych’s forces from reaching nearby Maidan Square, the heart of the demonstrations. Piles of owers brought in honor of the dead pro vided splashes of color in an otherwise drab day that was still tinged with the smell of smoke. “We will be helping,” Kerry said. “We are help ing. President Obama is planning more assistance.” The Ukraine govern ment continued to grapple with a Russian military takeover of Crimea, a stra tegic, mostly pro-Russian region in the country’s southeast, and Kerry’s visit came as Russian Presi dent Vladimir Putin said he wouldn’t be deterred by economic sanctions imposed punitively by the West. U.S. ofcials traveling with Kerry, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Obama adminis tration is considering slap ping Russia with unspeci ed economic sanctions as soon as this week. Members of Congress say they’re preparing legislation that would impose sanctions as well. As Kerry arrived, the White House announced the package of energy aid, along with training for nancial and election insti tutions and anticorrup tion efforts. Additionally, the ofcials said, the U.S. has suspended what was described as a narrow set of discussions with Russia over a bilateral trade in vestment treaty. It is also going to provide technical advice to the Ukraine gov ernment about its trade rights with Russia. The of cials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be quoted by name before the ofcial announcement was made. Putin pulled his forces back from the Ukrainian border on Tuesday, yet said that Moscow reserves the right to use all means to protect Russians in the country but hopes it doesn’t have to. Putin declared that Western actions were driv ing Ukraine into anarchy and warned that any sanc tions the West might place on Russia for its actions there will backre. Speaking from his resi dence outside Moscow, Pu tin said he still considers Yanukovych to be Ukraine’s leader and hopes Russia won’t need to use force in predominantly Russianspeaking eastern Ukraine. In Washington, the White House said the $1 billion loan guarantee was aimed at helping insulate Ukraine from reductions in energy subsidies. Rus sia provides a substantial portion of Ukraine’s natu ral gas and U.S. ofcials said they are prepared to work with Kiev to reduce its dependence on those imports. The assistance is also meant to supplement a broader aid package from the International Monetary Fund. The U.S. ofcials travel ing to Kiev said Washington is warily watching to see whether Russia will try to advance beyond Crimea. They cited reports of Russian helicopters nearly ying into mainland Ukraine airspace before being inter cepted by jets controlled by Kiev. It’s believed as many as 16,000 Russian troops have deployed to Crimea, while Ukrainian forces are amassing on both sides of an isthmus separating the region’s peninsula from the mainland.

The Prattler simply cannot allow February to slip into oblivion without mentioning, or reminding readers, of many signi cant historical events which have come into my life since arriving on August 24, 1927. The mother that gave me birth was born Nettie Marie Harris, and arrived on the scene February 16, 1906. Sunday, February 16, 2014, marked her 108th birthday!! As this is written, it seems unreal to even think of my mama in terms of being 108, had she continued to live. She died June 9, 1993 at the age of 87 and after being con ned to her home for almost ve years. Her brother, Horace Edward Harris, was born on February 27, 1908 and died January 29, 1983. A third brother, Byron Harris, was born February 20, 1910 and died April 17, 1910. The mother, Minnie Eliza Cook Harris, died during Byron’s birth. Those that remember my mother’s life will know that she, at the age of four, and Uncle Edward Harris at age two, were taken into the home of their maternal grandparents. Charles Florella Cook and Christina Maria Archer Cook, and reared until adulthood. To say that nancial conditions in the Cook home at that time were far from ideal for taking on the responsibility of rearing two “babies”, would be a gross understatement. To the eternal credit of my great grandparents, I rmly believe that this was done strictly as a labor of love, for there were no nancial enticements, such as foster home payments from governmental agencies. I rmly believe that my mother and uncle realized this fact as they grew older. I have thought of the circumstances often and have imagined of just how rewarding it would have been to personally thank those two aged “saints” who made many sacri ces to provide for those two precious grandchildren. Maybe recording this in the pages of “Perry’s Prattle” will compensate for not being able to express my appreciation and love to them during their lives. My mother’s closest neighbors were the Benjamin Pipkin family, thus the children were her best friends and close associates. The accompanying picture is some of the Pipkin children. On February 2, 1990, tragedy came to the Wells Family when our brother, Circuit Judge Clyde Brown Wells, and his friend, pilot and hunting partner, Jim Loudermilk, were killed in a airplane crash near the airport in Pensacola. Just minutes after take-off for a Louisiana hunting trip, the ight was aborted for some unknown cause, with the pilot attempting to return for a landing. This failed to happen, with the plane crashing with both losing their lives. That sad incident, just recognized as happening twenty-four years ago, is still hard to believe. Our brother is still loved and missed by his family as well as those he served in DeFuniak Springs where he was in his 17th year as Circuit Judge for the First Judicial Circuit Court of Florida. Let’s insert an important news bulletin here regarding brother Clyde: On February 26, 2014, Clyde Brown Wells, II, arrived in the lives of son, Judge Kelvin Clyde Wells, wife, Amy, sister, Regan Wells and grandmother of the new arrival, Esteena Kry Wells. From all reports, the baby, mother and all the family are doing well. On a further positive note, February 2, 1952, was the date your writer received his BSBA Degreefrom the School of Business Administration at the University of Florida. My good friend and Bonifay native, Randall P. Roberts received his degree from the same institution the same night. He went to work at the Valparaiso State Bank on February 11, which became his life career. My rst job was with Sears Roebuck and Company and I was hired on February 6, just prior to the grand opening for rst retail Sears store in Panama City. I remained there for six and one-half years before resigning and pursuing a course our other employment. I admit violating my father, Hugh Wells’, early advice to me and all my brothers: “You boys get you a job and stay with it–don’t be constantly skipping from job to job”. My readers will recall that Hester and I met in 1944 at Christo’s 5 & 10 cent store in Panama City when she was age 15 and awaiting return to Holmes County High School for her senior year. I was a few months short of age 17 and had recently graduated from Vernon High School. After completing my U. S. Army time and being discharged in July 1947, I entered the University of Florida in September of that year. My cousin, John E. Pipkin, entered the school at the same time. Our enrolling in the University made the Route One Bonifay News column in the Holmes County Advertiser. This weekly writing was done by Mrs. Nix D. Nelson for a number of years. Hester read that news item but made on contact with me until Valentines Day, February 14 1948, when she sent a Valentine Card to the youthful Perry Wells. This resulted in the courtship which culminated in or marriage on October 2, 1952.

Grandma Kent’s sister, Aunt Nell Dilmore, moved next door in 1990, right before my sophomore year at Chipley High School. Sheer proximity led to a lot of time spent with Nell, a spunky, free spirit unconstrained by society’s expectations. This became evident as she enthralled me with tales of her World War II-era youth, when young ladies loved red lipstick and “the boys in uniform.” I tried to picture my petite aunt working in the shipyard in Panama City. “They told me to weld like I crocheted,” she laughed. Aunt Nell liked welding. But she loved dancing, painting a vivid picture of days gone by as she held me captive with her stories. I could almost hear the jazzy sound of the band and see the swirl of smoke from the cigarette no amount of lecturing could make her put down. “The jitterbug was a fast dance,” she explained. “Timing was everything. If you lost that, it was hard to get it back. And Lord knows, you’d better have a good partner if you were going to be tossed over a shoulder or through his legs!” She laughed as she talked about the hits, like when she and a date won a jitterbug contest — and the misses, like the time an inept beau missed her hand, and she went crashing to the oor. In my mind’s eye, I was there, could hear her embarrassed laughter as she got back up and patted her Rita Hayworth curls into place. Other family members had stories to tell, but none have been as sorely missed as those of that sassy aunt, who passed away in the late ’90s. Since working in the newspaper industry, I’ve had to use discipline when searching for a speci c fact in bound archives. Photos and stories from decades past about people I know often distract from the task at hand. Most recently, I was pleasantly distracted by a tale handed down though our area’s McNeil family. Washington County resident Angie Roberts and her father, Bill McNeil, stopped by my of ce with an interesting story about Bill’s greatgrandfather, Asa McNeil. “All my life, I heard the story about the moonshiners and the gun ght in Bonifay,” McNeil said. “A posse was hired and deputized by a U.S. Marshall in Montgomery, Ala., to raid moonshine stills on the Florida and Alabama lines. Asa was one of those moonshiners.” According to a 1890 news report by the Daily Morning Astorian, a “bloody ght” occurred in Bonifay that December when moonshiners led an attack on the posse after it raided several stills in Holmes County. More than 150 shots were red — no small number in the days before repeating arms were common. Asa McNeil would later be sentenced to life in prison for his role in the ambush. The family story is that a lawyer talked McNeil into turning himself in, and in exchange, he’d get McNeil out of jail, and they’d split the $500 reward. The lawyer’s promise didn’t hold, however, and McNeil died in 1893 while in the jail in Pensacola at the age of 40. A Supreme Court case later ensued after the attorney was denied payment because he had been deputized, and authorities said McNeil’s capture was simply his duty. The attorney ultimately won his reward. “We’re certainly glad he had to ght for it,” Roberts said. “Those court records are why we have as much information as we do today.” But that’s just the beginning of the story. “Nobody I could nd knew anything more about it,” McNeil said. “I was beginning to wonder if there wasn’t something wrong with the story.” Then, a chance encounter in the 1960s put McNeil in contact with a man who could con rm at least part of the story. “I happened to see this man while I was out hunting, and we got to talking,” McNeil said. “He told me he remembered coming home from town with his daddy and being told, ‘Now, when we pass by this house, you’re gonna see a man sitting on his porch. He’s wanted by the law, but don’t you say anything.’ He told me he remembered seeing the man just as his daddy said, and that he had a beard and an octagon barreled ri e leaning on the porch. I was always told my grandfather never went anywhere without that gun.” Years later, Bill’s daughter, Angie Roberts, became interested in genealogy and sought to help her dad nd answers. What she found was that McNeil wasn’t just a moonshiner; he was a respected member of the Florida House of Representatives. “That was one of the last things I expected,” Roberts said. McNeil represented then Holmes County seat Cerro Gordo in 1889, serving in the Extra Session of the House of Representatives and on the Postal Route Committee. “He had a reputation as a desperado because of the moonshining, but turns out, he held a position of respect,” Roberts said. Perhaps more ironically, Asa’s son, Eddy McNeil, grew up to serve as Constable for Defuniak Springs. Meanwhile, Roberts and McNeil would like to know more about this part of their family history. “Asa’s parents were Acey and Sarah McNeil, and his siblings were James, Andrew, Harriet, Josaphine, Newton and Sarah. The 1860 Census shows them living in Jackson County. If anyone knows anything about Asa’s daughters, Willie L. McNeil (called Aunt Will), who married Daniel Cotton in January 1904, or Doanie McNeil, who married JE Eubanks of Holmes County in November 1906, please contact me at 867-0440.” Even if you don’t know anything about the McNeil family, I encourage you to learn more about your own. We often are impatient, wanting time to pass quickly, thinking we may reach our goals faster. But what better way to get where we want to be than to consider where we’ve been? The past holds our legacy, our traditions, and a thousand other hidden treasures. And one day, it will be our turn to tell the stories. Uncover your family story CAROL KENT Editor SPECIAL TO THE NEWS The McNeil family has been unable to locate a photo of its “desperado” patriarch, Asa McNeil.

As KMS lunchroom cashier JoAn Peterson watched the children design, she recalled her own experience with the garden club in 1967. “The day the garden club came, I brought a shell from home as my container, and I used blue hydrangeas,” Peterson said. “To my surprise, I won! Joyce Carter, who was club president, took me and several others to a state competition in Orlando. It was so much fun!” “The club provides an opportunity for the children to use their new-found knowledge and to create their own oral designs,” Youth Committee chairperson Linda Pigott said. “Their creativity continues to amaze us every year; some of the designs are gorgeous!” The arrangements were later transported to the Washington County Ag. Center, where they were entered in the Washington County 4-H Youth Fair for judging.” Chipley Garden Club welcomes new members any time during the year.

S PORTS A Section By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com Jon Mason and Kimberly Tuel are newcomers to area coaching and the Halifax All-Star Classic. They will lead the East girls basketball team together in the 10th annual game April 5 at Gulf Coast State College’s Billy Harrison Field House. The contest tips off at 11 a.m. and is followed by the boys at 1 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and students ages 6-17 and children 5 and younger get in free. Both coaches took rst-year positions at their respective schools this season, Mason at Mosley and Tuel with Chipley. Mason is the second Mosley coach to sit on the bench for the East and rst since Steve Can eld in 2012. Tuel is the fourth coach from Chipley to head the East, which is selected from a pool of senior players in The News Herald’s eight-county coverage area. Tuel led Chipley on a return trip to the Class 1A state championship game. The Tigers nished as runners-up for the second straight season after falling to Paxton 39-34 in the title game. Tuel led Chipley to the deep run and a 25-6 record with a team featuring only one senior. That was the same number as Mason’s team, with sophomores and juniors logging the majority of the minutes. Mosley nished 17-9 and fell to Rutherford in the District 1-5A semi nal. The East, 2-7 in the series against the West, features three early selections in Rutherford’s Marsheba Addison, Malone’s Curteeona Brelove and Ponce de Leon’s Hannah Howell. These three joined early East boys representatives Chai Baker (Malone), Alex Brown (Vernon), Nat Dixon (Mosley) and Khaliel Spearman (Rutherford). Complete 12-player East rosters will be announced March 8 at newsherald.com/sports/ halifax-all-star-classic and PanhandleVarsity.com and in print editions March 9.

Surrounded by friends, family, teammates and supportive school staff, Ryken signed on with the Lady Indians’ softball team at Chipola College. “I am very excited to be joining the Chipola nation,” said Ryken. “Chipola is such a dominant softball program, and I’m ecstatic to become one of them. I have a drive to be my best and accomplish many great things because it’s not something everybody does; I just want to be someone people remember.” Ryken said she plans on being with Chipola for two years before transferring to the University of North Florida and working towards a Bachelors in Health Science with a major in Physical Therapy. “I love Poplar Springs,” said Ryken. “It’s such a small community where we’re just like family and everyone is here to support you.” Savannah is the daughter of Alesia and John Ryken. “We’re excited that she’s attending Chipola,” said Ryken’s mother, Alesia. “They’re a good school and have won several state championships. Savannah says she really wants one of those rings.” Poplar Springs High School Principal Gordon Wells said that her school is proud of Ryken as well. “I’m extremely happy that she’s going to be able to play ball at the next level, and I’m also glad that our overall improvement of our program has lead to us being recognized by college coaches,” said Wells. “I hope this is something that continues down the road. I’m pretty familiar with the Chipola program and I know, I know they’re nationally known and I think that going to Chipola is a great step for her as well as a great step for Chipola.” Athlete makes Poplar Springs history CECILIA SPEARS | The News and Times-Advertiser Savannah Ryken stands with Chipola College Softball Coaches Melinda Hendrix and Kelly Brookins as she makes history as the rst softball player from Poplar Springs High School to sign on with a college team through a sports scholarship.

Several prominent shootings that have drawn national attention to Flori da’s gun laws have sparked the bills, which will be con sidered after the Legis lature convenes Tuesday. There was the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who had been accused in the death of 17-year-old Tray von Martin. There was the case of Marissa Alexander, who received 20 years in prison for ring a warn ing shot at her abusive husband. In another case, Mi chael Dunn was recently found guilty of second-de gree attempted murder af ter shooting into a car full of teenagers, killing Jordan Davis, in Jacksonville. And nally, former Tampa police ofcer Cur tis Reeves is in jail await ing trial after he shot and killed Chad Oulson during an argument over texting in a movie theater. He is charged with second-de gree murder, but is claim ing self-defense. The parents of Mar tin and Davis are sched uled to meet with legisla tors March 10 to address the “stand your ground” law and how they think it should be changed. That law says people who are not involved in illegal activ ity have the right to stand their ground and meet force with force, includ ing deadly force, if they reasonably believe it was necessary to avoid death or great bodily harm. “It’s critical that the Legislature take a look at what the country and the world is looking at Florida and recognize that we don’t look good right now as it re lates to ‘stand your ground,’ as it relates to self-defense laws that we have on the books,” said Rep. Mia Jones, D-Jacksonville. “We need to re-evaluate them, we need to make sure that we have laws on the books that are going to allow our young people to walk the streets doing those things that young people do and not have to worry about be ing killed as a result of it.” But Florida Republi cans, who control the Leg islature and the governor’s ofce, rmly embrace the “stand your ground” law and any sweeping changes are likely to be blocked. “I haven’t seen any changes to ‘stand your ground’ that I think are nec essary or that people have made a compelling case that would make a differ ence,” said House Speaker Will Weatherford. The Alexander case has spurred the development of what is being referred to as the ‘warning shot’ bill. Alex ander says she red a bul let at a wall in 2010 to scare off her husband when she felt he was threatening her. Her conviction was thrown out by an appeals court and a new trial scheduled. Greg Evers, R-Pen sacola, has sponsored the bill that more accurately addresses “10-20-life” in self-defense cases. Passed in 1999, the 10-20-life law requires lengthy sentences for specic felony rearm convictions. The judge who sentenced Alexander to 20 years felt he had no choice under the law. The warning shot chang es have the support of lob byist and former National Rie Association president Marion Hammer, who has Tallahassee’s most-power ful voice on gun laws. But opponents of the proposed changes worry they will cause more people to re shots. “You’re telling people, ‘I can shoot a warning shot,’” Sen. Christopher Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, said. “’The Legislature is telling me to shoot a warning shot.’ And that warning shot may not be in the air. ... To me, that’s inviting negligence. “I don’t want to encour age people to shoot more.” Another prominent bill will be a “stand your ground” tweak with a fac et directly related to the Zimmerman trial. The bill is co-sponsored by David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, and Smith. Local law enforcement would be required to pro vide guidelines for neigh borhood watch volunteers such as Zimmerman was. It would clarify that immunity under “stand your ground” does not apply to injured in nocent bystanders. Smith is adamant about the intent portion of the bill that would give direction for what qualies as a “stand your ground” defense and what does not. “We need to let judges know what is a ‘stand your ground’ case.” Smith said. “The NRA has signed off on a lot of my intent language ... to give direction to judg es what it should be used for and what it shouldn’t be used for. I’m real condent we’ll be getting something out for that. Hammer is also pushing a bill to keep schools from punishing children pre tending to play with guns or wearing clothes with pictures of rearms. She and the NRA also backs legislation aimed to prevent insurance compa nies from discriminating against gun owners. “You cannot discrimi nate against people for exercising a constitutional right,” Hammer said. “It’s that simple.” “You cannot discriminate against people for exercising a constitutional right. It’s that simple.” Marion Hammer National Rie Association president Special to The News For the third year in a row, American bald eagles have been sighted in Wash ington County near Chipley. The two adult eagles were spotted Sunday afternoon shing at Smokehouse Lake. In our area is it con sidered uncommon, but along coastal Florida sight ings are more frequent. In 1782, the bald eagle won a contest between it and the Wild Turkey and be came our national emblem. Even though it has a erce demeanor, eagles tend to be a little shy. Growing to 36 inches in height with a wing span of 72-90 inches, they can weigh up to 14 pounds and live as long as 30 years. Using their excellent eye sight, they hunt mostly from perches overlooking water and plunge to catch sh in their huge golden talons before returning to their perch to eat. Next time you think you see a “buzzard” ying in the sky, take a closer look. It may be a young eagle. Young eagles tend to be mostly dark brown with pale mottling under its broader at wings. Its heavy bright yellow bill will still be clearly visible. The easily identied white head and white tail plumage takes around four years to become visible. American Bald eagles are “look, but don’t touch.” They are protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, which pro hibits the take, possession, sale, purchase, barter, offer to sell, purchase or barter, transport, export or import, of any bald or golden eagle, alive or dead, including any part, nest or egg, unless al lowed by permit. “Take” in cludes pursue, shoot, shoot at, poison, wound, kill, cap ture, trap, collect, molest or disturb. Penalties can in clude nes up to $250,000 or two years imprisonment. This American bald eagle takes a moment to rest from its shing expedition at Smokehouse Lake in Washington County.SPe E CIal AL tT O T he HE N e E W s S Symbol of freedom spotted near Chipley

Present were Brenda Alford, Joyce Brannon, Cynthia Brooks, Medea Callahan, Barbara Howell, Wanda Howell, Terri McCormick, Nancy Riley, Kyla Rushing, DiAnn Shores, Dianne Smith and Hazel Tison. The meeting was called to order by President Brooks. The minutes were read by Secretary Riley and approved as read. Tison reviewed the book “The Cuckoo’s Calling,” by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scrapping by as a London private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime off-and-on girlfriend and now living in his ofce. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story. Bristow’s sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, fell to her death a few months earlier. They ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe it. Along with his secretary, Robin Ellacott, Strike looks into Lula’s death. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends and desperate designers as he makes his way to nd the truth. Did Lula Landry jump or was she pushed? This question ultimately becomes the heart of Strike’s investigation. Delicious refreshments were served by Mrs. Brooks at the conclusion of the meeting. Special to Extra The doors were open, and the reed was ying at the Washington County Historical Society Museum on Feb. 22. Master weavers Sharon Hynes and Yvette Lerner shared the art of basket weaving with a mixed group of beginning and experienced basketry students. The basket of the day was a “tote basket” with a Shaker strap handle. While distributing materials, Hynes told students the tote was simple to make, very handy and quite sturdy. A woven Shaker strap made it easy to carry by hand or over your shoulder. “The basket classes we offer through the museum are basic weaving and great for beginners,” Hynes said. “We provide a nice variety of reed — different colors and widths, at to round, along with sea grasses and embellishments. No two baskets are alike — we encourage students to express their creativity as they weave.” “From an historical point of view, baskets have been around thousands of years,” said Museum Director Dorothy Odom. “It is one of the widest spread crafts in history. We have several nice examples of old baskets from Washington County’s past in our Native American display. Basketry is an important skill, and we welcome the opportunity to help to keep the craft alive. In mid-March we look forward to offering an Easter basket weaving class.” The Washington County Historical Society Museum is at 685 Seventh St. in downtown Chipley. The hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m. to noon rst Saturdays. Special tours can be arranged by calling 638-0358.

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Dr. Mark Stickney, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently mentioned in the article “Extreme Groomers Give Dogs Dazzle” regarding creative and eccentric grooming for dogs. Everything from Mohawks, ower designs and temporary paint tattoos are created on the animal for “bonding” between a person and their pooch. Harmless yet extravagant, this extreme grooming fad is becoming increasingly popular among dog owners. Though Dr. Stickney admits in the article this type of grooming is not for him, he does agree you should always be sure to keep up with your pets’ basic grooming. “You don’t want to give them a bath more than once a week unless told to do so by your veterinarian for some sort of skin condition. Any more frequently than that will only serve to dry out their skin,” Stickney said. If you have an unruly pooch that doesn’t enjoy getting wet, then some positive reinforcement should usually do the trick. “One way to encourage them is to use a positive reinforcement, such as a treat, whenever you put them in a situation where they’re going to get their face or paws wet,” Stickney said. “Also, don’t go overboard the rst couple of times you bathe them. Easing them into the routine by only putting them in toe deep in the tub is a great way to start.” Giving your cat a bath can provide a whole new meaning to the word unpleasant. Lucky for us feline lovers, cats do a good enough job of keeping themselves clean without our intervention. “Unless your cat is just lthy, it’s best not to struggle with routinely cleaning them,” Stickney said. “If they do need to be cleaned, the easiest way to do so would be to buy a waterless shampoo you can simply rub into their skin and then rub out.” As far as which shampoo to use, any type formulated especially for animals should work just ne. “Assuming that your pet has healthy skin, you’ll want to use a shampoo specically formulated for dogs or cats,” Stickney said. If, however, your pet has a certain skin condition or irregularity, then consulting your veterinarian about which shampoo to use would be your safest bet. “One thing that you see commonly with animals that have a lot of loose skin and skin folds is they will get yeast or bacterial infections in those folds,” Stickney said. “In that case, you’ll want to consult with your veterinarian, as they will probably recommend bathing them more frequently and with some type of medicated shampoo.” Though it might not be necessary to sculpt your dog’s fur into exotic jungle scenes, as mentioned in the “Extreme Groomers” article, basic grooming and upkeep is vital to your pet’s health and happiness. ?H:<@^@] T[ X[T]^ : ^@ >:Q>@[* ) 0 % 022 3$02 /) 3) /$ ) ( /0 $( $ )) /0 ) /0 (2 2$ % 1 0( ) )'!2) '! + )" ) /0 % 1 02 2 '/$. ) 20* ) /) 022 ) ) $ /) $. ) $( /$( 20 /) 2$ 02 2 ( 1 ). $ (2) $. ) 3)(0' $2 /0 ) 0 )2* $( 2$( )$( /0 % 1 & $22 22 )) -/ $( 2)$ ) $3) $( $(( ) 2# and sor enes s aches Special to Extra Cottondale High School junior Breanna Harrell and Altha School junior Brad Pearson were named West Florida Electric’s Youth Tour competition winners on Feb. 20. Anthony Severson of Graceville High School was named the alternate. These students will represent WFEC on the National Rural Electric Youth Tour June 14-19, when they travel to Washington, D.C., with more than 30 other Florida students to join more than 1,500 high school juniors representing co-ops from across the country. Eleven area students participated in the local Youth Tour trip to Tallahassee. They were Brad Pearson, Altha School; Sarah Covell, Bethlehem School; Jake Woodham, Blountstown High School; MaryRosalyn Taylor, Chipley High School; Breanna Harrell, Cottondale High School; Anthony Severson, Graceville High School; Harrison Floyd, Malone School; Sophia Pereda, Marianna High School; Beth Hall, Poplar Springs School and Savannah Thompson, Sneads High School. Jordan Willis of Blountstown High School also participated in the FECA’s essay competition for the children and grandchildren of cooperative employees and trustees. The trips to Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., are part of the cooperative’s efforts to educate the leaders of tomorrow about how state and federal government works. The trips also help them gain insight into the roles rural cooperatives have played in the history of our country as well as their roles in the future of the electric utility industry. The Washington, D.C., Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1957 when co-ops sent students to Washington, D.C., to work during the summer. By 1964, the program caught on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began to coordinate the efforts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this opportunity.

Something this important cannot be jumped into at the last minute. 1. Obey the laws of health. Some people violate the basic rules of good health and exercise and expect God to bail them out of an unhealthy lifestyle. At times people do more than they are physically capable of doing and their bodies out. It is amazing how much healing a good rest will bring into a worn-out body. Divine healing is no substitute for good habits of health and a healthy lifestyle. The Bible tells us that whatsoever we sow, that shall we also reap. 2. Examine for hidden sin. Some people harbor secret sins expecting God to turn a blind eye to this. Sin, fundamentally, will come between a person and God’s provision. Every aspect of sin in our life must be confessed and dealt with before we pray for healing. Sin sometimes is so insidious it takes a real work of the Holy Spirit to uncover it. Until sin is confessed, no amount of prayer or “commanding in Jesus’ name,” will bring the healing touch of God. 3. Spiritual warfare. Often the enemy’s attacks on the Christian are so vicious that health is wrecked. Job is a good example of this in the Old Testament. Some illnesses have a demonic connection. Not all, a discerning spirit needs to verify if the sickness is of the enemy or not. Normal prayer will not touch this. Such times call for a person to have these demonic powers cast out of their life. 4. Thorn in the esh. This is probably a rare instance but it does happen. The apostle Paul had what he called a “thorn in the esh.” When such an occasion happens, no amount of prayer will take it away. Paul prayed three times and then God told him to stop praying for that. Not every illness is a “thorn in the esh.” This is a special provision of God to accomplish a speci c purpose. 5. Prayer and fasting. Some illnesses call for spiritual discipline above the ordinary. This discipline rest upon those who are praying for someone who was sick. Often the sick person has no strength to engage in prayer for himself. There needs to be in every local congregation a band of believers who give themselves to this ministry of prayer and fasting especially for those who are sick. With every advancement of medical technology, people seem to be getting sicker and sicker. God’s people need to know how to break the power of sickness. 6. Call for the elders of the church. This is the basic New Testament instruction. Never has the church been instructed to chase after some “celebrity healer,” but rather we are to submit to the authority of the local church. When things are done outside of the local church, it is easy to bypass God’s simple provision 7. God does heal today. There is too much evidence to the contrary. However, God in every generation and dispensation works within the con nes of clearly established guidelines. To get all God has for us we need to be so positioned that God can have all of us.

Town council members voted to submit the application for the $600,000 grant during a March 3 called meeting, identifying the towns short-term objectives as constructing a new re station near the existing station on Second Avenue and to explore other possible resources for the purpose of improving the way of life for all citizens, especially those who live in deteriorated housing and neighborhoods. The application is expected to be led March 12. In other business, council members voted to allow an outside committee to make a recommendation for the hiring of a town clerk to replace outgoing clerk JoAnn Hayes. By narrowing down the applicants and letting the committee make a recommendation, it wont be personal for or against any one candidate, Mayor BJ Phillips said. We will then vote to accept or not accept the committees recommendation. Of nine applicants, council members chose ve to be interviewed by the committee.

A gathering of family and friends gathered in Vernon to mark what would have been Wrights 26th birthday last Friday, Feb. 28. Amid an emotional candlelight vigil, prayers and hymns, her mother, Kim Wright, issued a plea. Someone knows something, Wright said. We feel like we know whos involved and want them to do the right thing. Maybe something happened (to Britney) by accident, and they panicked, but its time they came forward. We cant spend holidays with her, and we cant even visit a grave. Our family needs some closure. Britney last was seen near her home in July 2007.By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com GRACEVILLE A routine food safety inspection led to the arrest of three suspects on animal cruelty charges, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. According to investigative reports, about 90 dairy cattle at the Wild Rose Dairy, 1230 Underwood Road in Graceville, were classi ed as neglected and in poor physical condition. Inspectors detected unsanitary conditions at the dairy during a routine inspection Feb. 11 and immediately issued a stop sale order for violations of the requisite food safety regulations. A veterinarian at the department con rmed the poor condition of the cattle was because of neglect, and Agricultural Law Enforcement initiated an investigation. Law enforcement of cers transferred the remaining dairy cattle that were able to travel to another local dairy Feb. 17. The livestock will remain there, where they can live under proper care until the court can determine ownership and a long-term care solution. Agricultural Law Enforcement obtained arrest warrants through the State Attorneys Of ce for the 14th Judicial Circuit Court on Feb. 27, for the three individuals responsible for managing Wild Rose Dairy, where the dairy cattle were neglected. Arrested were Joseph Dodge Harvey Clark, 75; Richard Kevin Clark, 51; and Nikki Slininger, 31. The trio is charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a third degree felony, and unlawful disposal of animal carcasses, a second-degree misdemeanor. The suspects were booked at the Holmes County Jail, and bond was set at $10,000. At the time of the arrest, Agricultural Law Enforcement of cers said they found Slininger in possession of methamphetamine and charged her with possession of a controlled substance, a third-degree felony. Im proud of the collaborative effort by our staff and law enforcement of cers. Inspectors discovered the poor conditions at this dairy during a routine inspection and reported their observations to law enforcement, Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam said. As a result, we were able to hold these individuals responsible for the harm they caused and, more importantly, nd new accommodations for the animals.3 charged in Holmes County for animal crueltySee WRIGHT A2Someone knows something Tax collectors could soon process applications for concealed carry permits By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com Residents of Washington and Holmes counties soon could be among those nding the concealed carry permitting process more convenient. A Senate committee already has passed legislation that would allow applicants to apply for or renew permits at their tax collectors of ce. Currently, those desiring to apply for a concealed carry permit must drive to one of the states eight regional ofces, the nearest being in Tallahassee. The measure as currently written would allow tax collectors to charge a convenience fee on top of the current permit cost, and $22 could be added to the CONCEALED CONVENIENCE See CONCEALED A2 BRITNEY WRIGHT Years after her daughters disappearance, mother urges witnesses to step upDUCKS UNLIMITEDCHIPLEY Chipleys Ducks Unlimited organization will present its annual banquet and fundraiser Thursday at the Washington County Agriculture Center.

Permits still would be issued through the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Licensing. The department also would continue to handle the required background checks. The tax collectors role would simply be to expedite the process by accepting applications, an added duty which would come at the request of the tax collector. The proposal has heavy backing from the National Rie Association and interest from both Washington County Tax Collector Ken Naker and Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell. This is an effort to make permitting more accessible, Naker said. Ive already had people express interest in it, and as long as it helps the citizens of Washington County, Im all for it. We can take the workload as long as we can integrate it into what we already have and it not cost the taxpayers. I just dont want to see any extra burden put on the county. I havent gotten the nuts and bolts of it yet, but more and more people are getting concealed permits, and if its something theyre doing already, then the fees could be kept local instead of (the applicant) having to drive 100 miles to get it taken care of. My goal is for the people here to receive the best service they possibly can. Holmes County Tax Colleton Harry Bell agrees. Tax collectors are always looking for more ways to serve citizens, Bell said. Thats the focus of our association. Bell also pointed out smaller Florida counties might have an advantage over larger counties when it comes to implementing the service. Because were a rural area, our ofces are crosstrained, he said. We merged last November and already issue drivers licenses here. We have a pool of talented people working in this ofce, and this will be just one more thing added to their abilities. Were already getting positive feedback on the idea, he added. The only problem I foresee is if there is some type of equipment we have to purchase up front, prior to having any income from the applications. Theres no guarantees that people will embrace this, and if there is a large investment, that will have to be thoroughly investigated. According to the proposal, electronic ngerprint scanners valued at roughly $15,000 would be provided, with tax collectors responsible for maintenance. Residents still can apply in person at the regional eld ofces and by mail-in without the added convenience fees. According to the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce, none of her belongings including her clothing, purse and cell phone were taken from her home at the time of her disappearance. Crimestoppers is offering a reward of $1,000 for credible information in the case, but Wrights family is trying to raise that amount in hopes it will encourage someone to come forward with information. Donations can be made to the reward money fund by calling Wright at 334-648-8877. Anyone with any information about this case is asked to contact the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce at 638-6111 or Crimestoppers at 638-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous.

Washington County News | A3Wednesday, March 5, 2014KIEV, Ukraine (AP) In a somber show of U.S. support for Ukraines new leadership, Secretary of State John Kerry walked the streets Tuesday where more than 80 anti-government protesters were killed last month, and promised beseeching crowds that American aid is on the way. Kerry met in Ukraine with the new governments acting president, prime minister, foreign minister and top parliamentary ofcials. Speaking to reporters afterward, Kerry urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to stand down and said the U.S. is looking for ways to de-escalate the mounting tensions. It is clear that Russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further, Kerry said. It is not appropriate to invade a country, and at the end of a barrel of a gun dictate what you are trying to achieve. That is not 21st-century, G-8, major nation behavior. Kerry made a pointed distinction between the Ukrainian government and Putins. The contrast really could not be clearer: determined Ukranians demonstrating strength through unity, and the Russian government out of excuses, hiding its hand behind falsehoods, intimidation and provocations. In the hearts of Ukranians and the eyes of the world, there is nothing strong about what Russia is doing. He said the penalties against Russia are not something we are seeking to do, it is something Russia is pushing us to do. President Barack Obama, visiting a Washington, DC school to highlight his new budget, said his administrations push to punish Putin put the U.S. on the side of history that, I think, more and more people around the world deeply believe in, the principle that a sovereign people, an independent people, are able to make their own decisions about their own lives. And, you know, Mr. Putin can throw a lot of words out there, but the facts on the ground indicate that right now he is not abiding by that principle. The Obama administration announced a $1 billion energy subsidy package in Washington as Kerry was arriving in Kiev. The fast-moving developments came as the United States readied economic sanctions amid worries that Moscow was ready to stretch its military reach further into the mainland of the former Soviet republic. Kerry headed straight to Institutska Street at the start of an hours-long visit intended to bolster the new government that took over just a week ago when Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych ed. Kerry placed a bouquet of red roses, and twice the Roman Catholic secretary of state made the sign of the cross at a shrine set up to memorialize protesters who were killed during mid-February riots. Were concerned very much. We hope for your help, we hope for your assistance, a woman shouted as Kerry walked down a misty street lined with tires, plywood, barbed wire and other remnants of the barricades that protesters had stood up to try to keep Yanukovychs forces from reaching nearby Maidan Square, the heart of the demonstrations. Piles of owers brought in honor of the dead provided splashes of color in an otherwise drab day that was still tinged with the smell of smoke. We will be helping, Kerry said. We are helping. President Obama is planning more assistance. The Ukraine government continued to grapple with a Russian military takeover of Crimea, a strategic, mostly pro-Russian region in the countrys southeast, and Kerrys visit came as Russian President Vladimir Putin said he wouldnt be deterred by economic sanctions imposed punitively by the West. U.S. ofcials traveling with Kerry, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Obama administration is considering slapping Russia with unspecied economic sanctions as soon as this week. Members of Congress say theyre preparing legislation that would impose sanctions as well. As Kerry arrived, the White House announced the package of energy aid, along with training for nancial and election institutions and anticorruption efforts. Additionally, the ofcials said, the U.S. has suspended what was described as a narrow set of discussions with Russia over a bilateral trade investment treaty. It is also going to provide technical advice to the Ukraine government about its trade rights with Russia. The ofcials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be quoted by name before the ofcial announcement was made. Putin pulled his forces back from the Ukrainian border on Tuesday, yet said that Moscow reserves the right to use all means to protect Russians in the country but hopes it doesnt have to. Putin declared that Western actions were driving Ukraine into anarchy and warned that any sanctions the West might place on Russia for its actions there will backre. Speaking from his residence outside Moscow, Putin said he still considers Yanukovych to be Ukraines leader and hopes Russia wont need to use force in predominantly Russianspeaking eastern Ukraine. In Washington, the White House said the $1 billion loan guarantee was aimed at helping insulate Ukraine from reductions in energy subsidies. Russia provides a substantial portion of Ukraines natural gas and U.S. ofcials said they are prepared to work with Kiev to reduce its dependence on those imports. The assistance is also meant to supplement a broader aid package from the International Monetary Fund. The U.S. ofcials traveling to Kiev said Washington is warily watching to see whether Russia will try to advance beyond Crimea. They cited reports of Russian helicopters nearly ying into mainland Ukraine airspace before being intercepted by jets controlled by Kiev. Its believed as many as 16,000 Russian troops have deployed to Crimea, while Ukrainian forces are amassing on both sides of an isthmus separating the regions peninsula from the mainland.

The Prattler simply cannot allow February to slip into oblivion without mentioning, or reminding readers, of many signi cant historical events which have come into my life since arriving on August 24, 1927. The mother that gave me birth was born Nettie Marie Harris, and arrived on the scene February 16, 1906. Sunday, February 16, 2014, marked her 108th birthday!! As this is written, it seems unreal to even think of my mama in terms of being 108, had she continued to live. She died June 9, 1993 at the age of 87 and after being con ned to her home for almost ve years. Her brother, Horace Edward Harris, was born on February 27, 1908 and died January 29, 1983. A third brother, Byron Harris, was born February 20, 1910 and died April 17, 1910. The mother, Minnie Eliza Cook Harris, died during Byrons birth. Those that remember my mothers life will know that she, at the age of four, and Uncle Edward Harris at age two, were taken into the home of their maternal grandparents. Charles Florella Cook and Christina Maria Archer Cook, and reared until adulthood. To say that nancial conditions in the Cook home at that time were far from ideal for taking on the responsibility of rearing two babies, would be a gross understatement. To the eternal credit of my great grandparents, I rmly believe that this was done strictly as a labor of love, for there were no nancial enticements, such as foster home payments from governmental agencies. I rmly believe that my mother and uncle realized this fact as they grew older. I have thought of the circumstances often and have imagined of just how rewarding it would have been to personally thank those two aged saints who made many sacri ces to provide for those two precious grandchildren. Maybe recording this in the pages of Perrys Prattle will compensate for not being able to express my appreciation and love to them during their lives. My mothers closest neighbors were the Benjamin Pipkin family, thus the children were her best friends and close associates. The accompanying picture is some of the Pipkin children. On February 2, 1990, tragedy came to the Wells Family when our brother, Circuit Judge Clyde Brown Wells, and his friend, pilot and hunting partner, Jim Loudermilk, were killed in a airplane crash near the airport in Pensacola. Just minutes after take-off for a Louisiana hunting trip, the ight was aborted for some unknown cause, with the pilot attempting to return for a landing. This failed to happen, with the plane crashing with both losing their lives. That sad incident, just recognized as happening twenty-four years ago, is still hard to believe. Our brother is still loved and missed by his family as well as those he served in DeFuniak Springs where he was in his 17th year as Circuit Judge for the First Judicial Circuit Court of Florida. Lets insert an important news bulletin here regarding brother Clyde: On February 26, 2014, Clyde Brown Wells, II, arrived in the lives of son, Judge Kelvin Clyde Wells, wife, Amy, sister, Regan Wells and grandmother of the new arrival, Esteena Kry Wells. From all reports, the baby, mother and all the family are doing well. On a further positive note, February 2, 1952, was the date your writer received his BSBA Degreefrom the School of Business Administration at the University of Florida. My good friend and Bonifay native, Randall P. Roberts received his degree from the same institution the same night. He went to work at the Valparaiso State Bank on February 11, which became his life career. My rst job was with Sears Roebuck and Company and I was hired on February 6, just prior to the grand opening for rst retail Sears store in Panama City. I remained there for six and one-half years before resigning and pursuing a course our other employment. I admit violating my father, Hugh Wells, early advice to me and all my brothers: You boys get you a job and stay with itdont be constantly skipping from job to job. My readers will recall that Hester and I met in 1944 at Christos 5 & 10 cent store in Panama City when she was age 15 and awaiting return to Holmes County High School for her senior year. I was a few months short of age 17 and had recently graduated from Vernon High School. After completing my U. S. Army time and being discharged in July 1947, I entered the University of Florida in September of that year. My cousin, John E. Pipkin, entered the school at the same time. Our enrolling in the University made the Route One Bonifay News column in the Holmes County Advertiser. This weekly writing was done by Mrs. Nix D. Nelson for a number of years. Hester read that news item but made on contact with me until Valentines Day, February 14 1948, when she sent a Valentine Card to the youthful Perry Wells. This resulted in the courtship which culminated in or marriage on October 2, 1952. REMEMBER: Much of the historical information contained in todays column is contained in The Heritage of Washington County Book in detail. The book is again available from me.

Grandma Kents sister, Aunt Nell Dilmore, moved next door in 1990, right before my sophomore year at Chipley High School. Sheer proximity led to a lot of time spent with Nell, a spunky, free spirit unconstrained by societys expectations. This became evident as she enthralled me with tales of her World War II-era youth, when young ladies loved red lipstick and the boys in uniform. I tried to picture my petite aunt working in the shipyard in Panama City. They told me to weld like I crocheted, she laughed. Aunt Nell liked welding. But she loved dancing, painting a vivid picture of days gone by as she held me captive with her stories. I could almost hear the jazzy sound of the band and see the swirl of smoke from the cigarette no amount of lecturing could make her put down. The jitterbug was a fast dance, she explained. Timing was everything. If you lost that, it was hard to get it back. And Lord knows, youd better have a good partner if you were going to be tossed over a shoulder or through his legs! She laughed as she talked about the hits, like when she and a date won a jitterbug contest and the misses, like the time an inept beau missed her hand, and she went crashing to the oor. In my minds eye, I was there, could hear her embarrassed laughter as she got back up and patted her Rita Hayworth curls into place. Other family members had stories to tell, but none have been as sorely missed as those of that sassy aunt, who passed away in the late 90s. Since working in the newspaper industry, Ive had to use discipline when searching for a speci c fact in bound archives. Photos and stories from decades past about people I know often distract from the task at hand. Most recently, I was pleasantly distracted by a tale handed down though our areas McNeil family. Washington County resident Angie Roberts and her father, Bill McNeil, stopped by my of ce with an interesting story about Bills greatgrandfather, Asa McNeil. All my life, I heard the story about the moonshiners and the gun ght in Bonifay, McNeil said. A posse was hired and deputized by a U.S. Marshall in Montgomery, Ala., to raid moonshine stills on the Florida and Alabama lines. Asa was one of those moonshiners. According to a 1890 news report by the Daily Morning Astorian, a bloody ght occurred in Bonifay that December when moonshiners led an attack on the posse after it raided several stills in Holmes County. More than 150 shots were red no small number in the days before repeating arms were common. Asa McNeil would later be sentenced to life in prison for his role in the ambush. The family story is that a lawyer talked McNeil into turning himself in, and in exchange, hed get McNeil out of jail, and theyd split the $500 reward. The lawyers promise didnt hold, however, and McNeil died in 1893 while in the jail in Pensacola at the age of 40. A Supreme Court case later ensued after the attorney was denied payment because he had been deputized, and authorities said McNeils capture was simply his duty. The attorney ultimately won his reward. Were certainly glad he had to ght for it, Roberts said. Those court records are why we have as much information as we do today. But thats just the beginning of the story. Nobody I could nd knew anything more about it, McNeil said. I was beginning to wonder if there wasnt something wrong with the story. Then, a chance encounter in the 1960s put McNeil in contact with a man who could con rm at least part of the story. I happened to see this man while I was out hunting, and we got to talking, McNeil said. He told me he remembered coming home from town with his daddy and being told, Now, when we pass by this house, youre gonna see a man sitting on his porch. Hes wanted by the law, but dont you say anything. He told me he remembered seeing the man just as his daddy said, and that he had a beard and an octagon barreled ri e leaning on the porch. I was always told my grandfather never went anywhere without that gun. Years later, Bills daughter, Angie Roberts, became interested in genealogy and sought to help her dad nd answers. What she found was that McNeil wasnt just a moonshiner; he was a respected member of the Florida House of Representatives. That was one of the last things I expected, Roberts said. McNeil represented then Holmes County seat Cerro Gordo in 1889, serving in the Extra Session of the House of Representatives and on the Postal Route Committee. He had a reputation as a desperado because of the moonshining, but turns out, he held a position of respect, Roberts said. Perhaps more ironically, Asas son, Eddy McNeil, grew up to serve as Constable for Defuniak Springs. Meanwhile, Roberts and McNeil would like to know more about this part of their family history. Asas parents were Acey and Sarah McNeil, and his siblings were James, Andrew, Harriet, Josaphine, Newton and Sarah. The 1860 Census shows them living in Jackson County. If anyone knows anything about Asas daughters, Willie L. McNeil (called Aunt Will), who married Daniel Cotton in January 1904, or Doanie McNeil, who married JE Eubanks of Holmes County in November 1906, please contact me at 867-0440. Even if you dont know anything about the McNeil family, I encourage you to learn more about your own. We often are impatient, wanting time to pass quickly, thinking we may reach our goals faster. But what better way to get where we want to be than to consider where weve been? The past holds our legacy, our traditions, and a thousand other hidden treasures. And one day, it will be our turn to tell the stories.Uncover your family story CAROL KENTEditor SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe McNeil family has been unable to locate a photo of its desperado patriarch, Asa McNeil.

Club member Louise Michaels provided instruction on the basics of oral design and demonstrated construction in the classroom. After class, students went on stage in the KMS lunchroom, where club members waited with buckets of live greenery, multi-colored owers and recycled mugs lled with oasis. As KMS lunchroom cashier JoAn Peterson watched the children design, she recalled her own experience with the garden club in 1967. The day the garden club came, I brought a shell from home as my container, and I used blue hydrangeas, Peterson said. To my surprise, I won! Joyce Carter, who was club president, took me and several others to a state competition in Orlando. It was so much fun! The club provides an opportunity for the children to use their new-found knowledge and to create their own oral designs, Youth Committee chairperson Linda Pigott said. Their creativity continues to amaze us every year; some of the designs are gorgeous! The arrangements were later transported to the Washington County Ag. Center, where they were entered in the Washington County 4-H Youth Fair for judging. Chipley Garden Club welcomes new members any time during the year.

Several prominent shootings that have drawn national attention to Floridas gun laws have sparked the bills, which will be considered after the Legislature convenes Tuesday. There was the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who had been accused in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. There was the case of Marissa Alexander, who received 20 years in prison for ring a warning shot at her abusive husband. In another case, Michael Dunn was recently found guilty of second-degree attempted murder after shooting into a car full of teenagers, killing Jordan Davis, in Jacksonville. And nally, former Tampa police ofcer Curtis Reeves is in jail awaiting trial after he shot and killed Chad Oulson during an argument over texting in a movie theater. He is charged with second-degree murder, but is claiming self-defense. The parents of Martin and Davis are scheduled to meet with legislators March 10 to address the stand your ground law and how they think it should be changed. That law says people who are not involved in illegal activity have the right to stand their ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if they reasonably believe it was necessary to avoid death or great bodily harm. Its critical that the Legislature take a look at what the country and the world is looking at Florida and recognize that we dont look good right now as it relates to stand your ground, as it relates to self-defense laws that we have on the books, said Rep. Mia Jones, D-Jacksonville. We need to re-evaluate them, we need to make sure that we have laws on the books that are going to allow our young people to walk the streets doing those things that young people do and not have to worry about being killed as a result of it. But Florida Republicans, who control the Legislature and the governors ofce, rmly embrace the stand your ground law and any sweeping changes are likely to be blocked. I havent seen any changes to stand your ground that I think are necessary or that people have made a compelling case that would make a difference, said House Speaker Will Weatherford. The Alexander case has spurred the development of what is being referred to as the warning shot bill. Alexander says she red a bullet at a wall in 2010 to scare off her husband when she felt he was threatening her. Her conviction was thrown out by an appeals court and a new trial scheduled. Greg Evers, R-Pensacola, has sponsored the bill that more accurately addresses -20-life in self-defense cases. Passed in 1999, the 10-20-life law requires lengthy sentences for specic felony rearm convictions. The judge who sentenced Alexander to 20 years felt he had no choice under the law. The warning shot changes have the support of lobbyist and former National Rie Association president Marion Hammer, who has Tallahassees most-powerful voice on gun laws. But opponents of the proposed changes worry they will cause more people to re shots. Youre telling people, I can shoot a warning shot, Sen. Christopher Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, said. The Legislature is telling me to shoot a warning shot. And that warning shot may not be in the air. ... To me, thats inviting negligence. I dont want to encourage people to shoot more. Another prominent bill will be a stand your ground tweak with a facet directly related to the Zimmerman trial. The bill is co-sponsored by David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, and Smith. Local law enforcement would be required to provide guidelines for neighborhood watch volunteers such as Zimmerman was. It would clarify that immunity under stand your ground does not apply to injured innocent bystanders. Smith is adamant about the intent portion of the bill that would give direction for what qualies as a stand your ground defense and what does not. We need to let judges know what is a stand your ground case. Smith said. The NRA has signed off on a lot of my intent language ... to give direction to judges what it should be used for and what it shouldnt be used for. Im real condent well be getting something out for that. Hammer is also pushing a bill to keep schools from punishing children pretending to play with guns or wearing clothes with pictures of rearms. She and the NRA also backs legislation aimed to prevent insurance companies from discriminating against gun owners. You cannot discriminate against people for exercising a constitutional right, Hammer said. Its that simple.You cannot discriminate against people for exercising a constitutional right. Its that simple.Marion Hammer National Rie Association president Special to The NewsFor the third year in a row, American bald eagles have been sighted in Washington County near Chipley. The two adult eagles were spotted Sunday afternoon shing at Smokehouse Lake. In our area is it considered uncommon, but along coastal Florida sightings are more frequent. In 1782, the bald eagle won a contest between it and the Wild Turkey and became our national emblem. Even though it has a erce demeanor, eagles tend to be a little shy. Growing to 36 inches in height with a wing span of 72-90 inches, they can weigh up to 14 pounds and live as long as 30 years. Using their excellent eyesight, they hunt mostly from perches overlooking water and plunge to catch sh in their huge golden talons before returning to their perch to eat. Next time you think you see a buzzard ying in the sky, take a closer look. It may be a young eagle. Young eagles tend to be mostly dark brown with pale mottling under its broader at wings. Its heavy bright yellow bill will still be clearly visible. The easily identied white head and white tail plumage takes around four years to become visible.

Present were Brenda Alford, Joyce Brannon, Cynthia Brooks, Medea Callahan, Barbara Howell, Wanda Howell, Terri McCormick, Nancy Riley, Kyla Rushing, DiAnn Shores, Dianne Smith and Hazel Tison. The meeting was called to order by President Brooks. The minutes were read by Secretary Riley and approved as read. Tison reviewed the book The Cuckoos Calling, by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scrapping by as a London private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime off-and-on girlfriend and now living in his ofce. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story. Bristows sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, fell to her death a few months earlier. They ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe it. Along with his secretary, Robin Ellacott, Strike looks into Lulas death. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends and desperate designers as he makes his way to nd the truth. Did Lula Landry jump or was she pushed? This question ultimately becomes the heart of Strikes investigation. Delicious refreshments were served by Mrs. Brooks at the conclusion of the meeting.Special to ExtraThe doors were open, and the reed was ying at the Washington County Historical Society Museum on Feb. 22. Master weavers Sharon Hynes and Yvette Lerner shared the art of basket weaving with a mixed group of beginning and experienced basketry students. The basket of the day was a tote basket with a Shaker strap handle. While distributing materials, Hynes told students the tote was simple to make, very handy and quite sturdy. A woven Shaker strap made it easy to carry by hand or over your shoulder. The basket classes we offer through the museum are basic weaving and great for beginners, Hynes said. We provide a nice variety of reed different colors and widths, at to round, along with sea grasses and embellishments. No two baskets are alike we encourage students to express their creativity as they weave. From an historical point of view, baskets have been around thousands of years, said Museum Director Dorothy Odom. It is one of the widest spread crafts in history. We have several nice examples of old baskets from Washington Countys past in our Native American display. Basketry is an important skill, and we welcome the opportunity to help to keep the craft alive. In mid-March we look forward to offering an Easter basket weaving class. The Washington County Historical Society Museum is at 685 Seventh St. in downtown Chipley. The hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m. to noon rst Saturdays.

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3Dr. Mark Stickney, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently mentioned in the article Extreme Groomers Give Dogs Dazzle regarding creative and eccentric grooming for dogs. Everything from Mohawks, ower designs and temporary paint tattoos are created on the animal for bonding between a person and their pooch. Harmless yet extravagant, this extreme grooming fad is becoming increasingly popular among dog owners. Though Dr. Stickney admits in the article this type of grooming is not for him, he does agree you should always be sure to keep up with your pets basic grooming. You dont want to give them a bath more than once a week unless told to do so by your veterinarian for some sort of skin condition. Any more frequently than that will only serve to dry out their skin, Stickney said. If you have an unruly pooch that doesnt enjoy getting wet, then some positive reinforcement should usually do the trick. One way to encourage them is to use a positive reinforcement, such as a treat, whenever you put them in a situation where theyre going to get their face or paws wet, Stickney said. Also, dont go overboard the rst couple of times you bathe them. Easing them into the routine by only putting them in toe deep in the tub is a great way to start. Giving your cat a bath can provide a whole new meaning to the word unpleasant. Lucky for us feline lovers, cats do a good enough job of keeping themselves clean without our intervention. Unless your cat is just lthy, its best not to struggle with routinely cleaning them, Stickney said. If they do need to be cleaned, the easiest way to do so would be to buy a waterless shampoo you can simply rub into their skin and then rub out. As far as which shampoo to use, any type formulated especially for animals should work just ne. Assuming that your pet has healthy skin, youll want to use a shampoo specically formulated for dogs or cats, Stickney said. If, however, your pet has a certain skin condition or irregularity, then consulting your veterinarian about which shampoo to use would be your safest bet. One thing that you see commonly with animals that have a lot of loose skin and skin folds is they will get yeast or bacterial infections in those folds, Stickney said. In that case, youll want to consult with your veterinarian, as they will probably recommend bathing them more frequently and with some type of medicated shampoo. Though it might not be necessary to sculpt your dogs fur into exotic jungle scenes, as mentioned in the Extreme Groomers article, basic grooming and upkeep is vital to your pets health and happiness. and soreness aches Special to ExtraCottondale High School junior Breanna Harrell and Altha School junior Brad Pearson were named West Florida Electrics Youth Tour competition winners on Feb. 20. Anthony Severson of Graceville High School was named the alternate. These students will represent WFEC on the National Rural Electric Youth Tour June 14-19, when they travel to Washington, D.C., with more than 30 other Florida students to join more than 1,500 high school juniors representing co-ops from across the country. Eleven area students participated in the local Youth Tour trip to Tallahassee. They were Brad Pearson, Altha School; Sarah Covell, Bethlehem School; Jake Woodham, Blountstown High School; MaryRosalyn Taylor, Chipley High School; Breanna Harrell, Cottondale High School; Anthony Severson, Graceville High School; Harrison Floyd, Malone School; Sophia Pereda, Marianna High School; Beth Hall, Poplar Springs School and Savannah Thompson, Sneads High School. Jordan Willis of Blountstown High School also participated in the FECAs essay competition for the children and grandchildren of cooperative employees and trustees. The trips to Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., are part of the cooperatives efforts to educate the leaders of tomorrow about how state and federal government works. The trips also help them gain insight into the roles rural cooperatives have played in the history of our country as well as their roles in the future of the electric utility industry. The Washington, D.C., Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1957 when co-ops sent students to Washington, D.C., to work during the summer. By 1964, the program caught on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began to coordinate the efforts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this opportunity.

Something this important cannot be jumped into at the last minute. 1. Obey the laws of health. Some people violate the basic rules of good health and exercise and expect God to bail them out of an unhealthy lifestyle. At times people do more than they are physically capable of doing and their bodies out. It is amazing how much healing a good rest will bring into a worn-out body. Divine healing is no substitute for good habits of health and a healthy lifestyle. The Bible tells us that whatsoever we sow, that shall we also reap. 2. Examine for hidden sin. Some people harbor secret sins expecting God to turn a blind eye to this. Sin, fundamentally, will come between a person and Gods provision. Every aspect of sin in our life must be confessed and dealt with before we pray for healing. Sin sometimes is so insidious it takes a real work of the Holy Spirit to uncover it. Until sin is confessed, no amount of prayer or commanding in Jesus name, will bring the healing touch of God. 3. Spiritual warfare. Often the enemys attacks on the Christian are so vicious that health is wrecked. Job is a good example of this in the Old Testament. Some illnesses have a demonic connection. Not all, a discerning spirit needs to verify if the sickness is of the enemy or not. Normal prayer will not touch this. Such times call for a person to have these demonic powers cast out of their life. 4. Thorn in the esh. This is probably a rare instance but it does happen. The apostle Paul had what he called a thorn in the esh. When such an occasion happens, no amount of prayer will take it away. Paul prayed three times and then God told him to stop praying for that. Not every illness is a thorn in the esh. This is a special provision of God to accomplish a speci c purpose. 5. Prayer and fasting. Some illnesses call for spiritual discipline above the ordinary. This discipline rest upon those who are praying for someone who was sick. Often the sick person has no strength to engage in prayer for himself. There needs to be in every local congregation a band of believers who give themselves to this ministry of prayer and fasting especially for those who are sick. With every advancement of medical technology, people seem to be getting sicker and sicker. Gods people need to know how to break the power of sickness. 6. Call for the elders of the church. This is the basic New Testament instruction. Never has the church been instructed to chase after some celebrity healer, but rather we are to submit to the authority of the local church. When things are done outside of the local church, it is easy to bypass Gods simple provision 7. God does heal today. There is too much evidence to the contrary. However, God in every generation and dispensation works within the con nes of clearly established guidelines. To get all God has for us we need to be so positioned that God can have all of us.Special to ExtraFirst Baptist Church in Bonifay will host the annual evangelistic meeting March 27-28.
