By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY —– Two suspects are in custody and another is at large in connection with a home invasion that occurred during the early morning hours in Washington County on Monday. The Washington County Sheriff’s Ofce responded to a Garret Road residence at about 12:30 a.m. in reference to a home invasion. According to reports, ofcers arrived to nd the victim “bleeding profusely” from a head laceration. The victim told investigators he “heard something that alarmed him” and was then attacked in his home by three armed men, one who struck him in the head with a weapon and another who red a shot before the suspects ed with an undisclosed amount of cash. The victim called 911 and was able to provide dispatchers a description of the vehicle and the direction in which it was traveling. A Chipley police ofcer stopped a vehicle matching the description and took one suspect, Brandon Terrell Ramsey, 23, into custody. Two others, Christopher James Thomas, 22, and Devante Keon Thomas, 18, ed on foot in the area of Orange Street in Chipley. The Northwest Florida Reception Center K9 tracking team was deployed in the area of the trafc stop and was able to track Christopher James Thomas to a residence in the area near First Avenue and Peach Street. While outside the residence, ofcers saw the subject escape out of the window, but ofcers inside the home were able to apprehend and arrest him. WCSO reports Devante Keon Thomas is still at large and asks the community be vigilant in reporting anything that looks suspicious or that could be related to this case. Information is asked to be reported immediately to the WCSO at 638-6111 or anonymously through 638TIPS (8477). The suspects are charged with home invasion, burglary with battery and grand theft.

The property once was owned by Graham Air Force Base and was Less about connement, more about re-entry used as a pilot training school during World War II and the Korean War. “The facility consists of medium security for male inmates and minimum se curity for female inmates,” Jusino said. “The larg est percentage of men in mates are imprisoned for drug offenses, with sex of fenders coming in second and weapons, explosives and arson coming in third. For women, the largest percentage of inmates are imprisoned drug offenses, but then is followed by extortion, aggravated as sault and kidnapping as second largest population and burglary, larceny and property offenses coming in third.” She said services pro vided within the facility in clude food, health, correc tional, unit management, correctional systems, education, recreation, re ligious, psychology/drug abuse, administration, computer, human resourc es, nancial management/ trust fund, facilities, safety re-entry and UNICOR. Mandatory programs include General Equiva lency Diploma and English as a Second Language, and non-mandatory pro grams include vocational programs such as Adult Diversied Cooperative Training with Cosmetology, Culinary Arts and Build ing Maintenance, NCCER Building and Trades Core and Business Market ing, Plumbing, HVAC and Electrical Apprenticeships through the Department of Labor; Adult Continuing Education, which includes Learn to Speak English, Typing, Microsoft Ofce Applications, Real Estate, Taxes, Business Manage ment, Finance, Resume Building and Legal Infor mation; parenting classes; post-secondary education; leisure/law library servic es; and mock job fairs. “FCI Marianna’s staff is fully committed to the Bureau of Prison’s mission statement to protect soci ety by conning inmates in a safe environment and to provide re-entry programs to prevent recidivism,” Jusino said. “Re-entry be gins on the rst day of incar ceration, and all inmates are assessed through the Inmate Skills Develop ment system, where skill decits are identied. The nine skill areas include Academic, Vocational/Ca reer, Leisure, Character, Cognitive, Mental Health, Wellness, Daily Living and Interpersonal, and skill decit areas are linked to re-entry programs offered by our staff, volunteers and contractors.” Pestro said they also are involved in many com munity service projects to become more involved in the community. “The more involved they are in the commu nity, the more likely they will not come back, and the more likely society will better accept them back,” Pestro said. “More and more, society is getting better at accepting them and more incentives are becoming available to em ployers to hire them. The more chances they have to get out there and work, the less likely they are to return to a correctional facility.” CEc C ILIA SPEARs S | News Executive assistant and camp administrator Thahesha Jusino and Kerry Pestro, from the Federal Correction Institute in Marianna, were guest speakers for last week’s Bonifay Kiwanis Club meeting.

New test to replace FCAT next year TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Flor ida is ready to part ways with the Florida Compre hensive Assessment Test, a mainstay in the state’s schools for more than a decade. Pam Stewart, the state’s education commissioner, announced Monday she has approved a six-year contract with a not-forprot outt to develop a new test that students will be required to take a year from now. “I feel very condent that it is the best choice for Florida’s students and the assessment is going to measure their progress and achievement on Florida standards,” Stewart said. Stewart’s decision to ap prove the $220 million con tract with American Insti tutes for Research marks another signicant step to ward the state’s transition away from the FCAT, which has drawn praise and scorn for the way it transformed the state’s public schools. The new tests will in clude more than the mul tiple-choice questions that are a framework for many standardized tests, includ ing the FCAT. The commis sioner also said Monday that students will use paper and pencil to complete the tests initially, but schools gradually will transition to online tests. In a letter sent to prin cipals Monday, Stewart said students will be asked to create graphs, inter act with test content “and write and respond in differ ent ways than they would on traditional tests.” She said the new questions will assess “higher order think ing skills” that are part of the “higher expectations” included in the state’s new standards. Former Gov. Jeb Bush made the FCAT the centerpiece of his A-through-F school grad ing system. Test results not only were used to evaluate schools but also to deter mine whether third-grad ers should be held back and whether high school students were ready to graduate. The unnamed test will be based on a new set of standards that are based largely on the contentious Common Core State Stan dards. Florida ofcials tweaked the math and English standards earlier this year to include such items as a requirement for cursive writing. But this change has not ended the backlash against Common Core. Florida initially was part of a national consortium developing a Common Core test, but the state pulled out of the Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness at the urging of Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders. The group selected Monday has ties to a dif ferent national consortium that is developing its own Common Core test but Stewart insisted the new test will be Florida-specic. She did note, however, the type of questions used on the test was being tried out rst this year in Utah. Randy Osborne, who works with the group Flor ida Parents Against Com mon Core, called the new testing vendor an “evil twin” to the previous group the state worked with. TALLAHASSEE (AP) — The head of the Florida Demo cratic Party is contending that Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign broke the state’s campaign nance laws by shifting money be tween accounts. Election law complaints can be routine during an election year, but this one could be signicant: If conrmed, it could re sult in a ne of as much as $82 million. Allison Tant, chairwoman of the state party, led the complaint with the Florida Elections Commission late last week, naming both Scott and his political committee Let’s Get to Work. The complaint maintains that the campaign broke the law when the Scott cam paign transferred almost $27.4 million from one type of campaign account to an other earlier this month. “They have violated the law and the governor is sup posed to uphold the law,” Tant said. Republican Party of Flor ida chairman Lenny Curry defended Scott’s campaign organization. “Let’s Get to Work is con dent that they have done everything according to the standards of Florida election law,” Curry said. Scott rst set up Let’s Get to Work in 2010 as a way to help out his campaign for governor when he was chal lenging a Republican who had the backing of many GOP leaders. It was set up as an “elec tioneering communica tion organization,” which is allowed to take unlim ited contributions but is subject to limits on how it can spend the money. These types of political organizations can run televi sion ads as long as they don’t use the words “vote for” or “vote against.” Scott kept Let’s Get to Work intact after his victo rious election in 2010, and since the summer of 2011 he has raised millions for the organization. The gov ernor has accepted checks from a long list of prominent business and political heavy weights, including The Semi nole Tribe of Florida, Florida Power & Light, Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, and the Republican Gover nors Association. On March 6, John French, the chairman of Let’s Get to Work, told the state his organization was being disbanded as an elec tioneering communication organization. On the same day, a new political com mittee with the same name was formed, and the old or ganization gave an almost $27.4 million check to the new one. Under a new law passed last year by legislators, polit ical committees have more exibility over how they can spend money. For example, a committee can give money directly to political parties, while an electioneering com munication organization cannot. This means the new Let’s Get to Work has more leeway on how it can spend its money. Democrats maintain state law prohibits an electioneer ing communication organi zation from donating directly to a political committee. French, however, says his action was legal because the rst organization was being dissolved and was disposing of its money. Dems say Scott campaign broke fundraising law “I feel very condent that it is the best choice for Florida’s students and the assessment is going to measure their progress and achievement on Florida standards.” Pam Stewart Florida’s education commissioner

It is hard to comprehend that on this date in 2006, the committee was told by Heritage Publishing consultants David and Alice Bice the Washington County Heritage Book was ready for “proo ng,” with a late June date already set aside for publishing. Eight years later, we are celebrating receiving 85 additional copies of the book on Jan. 9, representing the nal books from the 2012 fourth printing. The books are continuing to sell fast! They are available from me at $64.20 in Chipley or $72 when mailed. Contact me at 850 638-1016, or email: perry1000@bellsouth.net for your copy. My involvement in the book and 11 years of writing the “Prattle,” has contributed to the name “historian” and “genealogist” having been bestowed upon me. I am grossly overrated in both areas, but I admit enjoying the titles! Joni Franklin Rogers, legal specialist to Attorney Jeff Goodman, inquired recently if I knew the history of the house the law rm has recently moved into on Main Street in Chipley. My recent Prattle, titled “Fruit Basket Turnover,” mentioned Jeff’s change of location, and Attorney Michelle Tagert also has her of ce there. After only a few seconds, it came to me that the property was the home of J. D. (Jim) Nepper and wife, Pauline Williams Nepper. My reason for knowing this information came from being summoned by Sheriff Bryant Thurman on Nov. 24, 1971, to serve on the Coroner’s Jury, empaneled by County Judge A. K. Shuler, to investigate the unattended death of Mrs. Nepper. The ndings were that she had died of natural causes. This lady’s funeral was conducted as a 3 p.m. graveside service in Chipley’s Glenwood Cemetery on Nov. 25, 1971. The Rev. H. P. Childs, pastor of First United Methodist Church, of ciated the funeral, which was entrusted to Brown Funeral Home of Chipley. Her tombstone shows the date of birth as June 20, 1894, and date of death as Nov. 17, 1971. She was buried alongside of her husband, J. D. Nepper, and an infant child, who died at childbirth on Nov. 19, 1913 (tombstone for James Daniel Nepper shows date of birth as Jan. 12, 1890, and date of death as August 26, 1949). Surviving Pauline Nepper in 1971 was her daughter, Mrs. Buck Williams of Huntsville, Ala. (tombstone at Glenwood shows her as Emily Nepper Williams, date of birth Jan. 30, 1921, and date of death as June 25, 2009). Pauline had two sisters, Mrs. Blanche Horn of Pensacola and Mrs. M. E. Granter of Tampa. There were three grandchildren and one great-grand child surviving. Further research revealed J. D. Nepper was in Washington County as early as 1881-1883. He was one of the rst Railroad Agents, who acted as administrator of the depot when the rst train of 1882 graced our city, initiating rail traf c for both freight and passenger service from Jacksonville to Pensacola. Marriage Records in Washington County re ect that J. D. Nepper and Pauline Williams were married on Feb. 13, 1913. These records also lists the marriage of Mattie A. Nepper and George Myers on Nov. 11, 1913. She is apparently the sister of J. D. Nepper. “Washington, Florida’s Twelfth County,” authored by E. W. (Judge) Carswell, shows in 1917, J. D. Nepper was included in a mammoth group of young men who were called for examination by a select committee to determine their eligibility for the military draft during World War I. In late 1922, this gentleman was elected to serve on the city council of Chipley. In 1926, he was serving in the dual role of mayor and judge of the city court, a practice that was carried on until the Constitutional Revision of Article 6, governing courts of Florida, was passed in 1969, narrowing courts of the state to a two tier system, county court and circuit court. Jan. 1, 1977 was established as the time all municipal courts would be abolished, and jurisdiction for replacing those courts passed to the county judge of the county. Ironically, that was the year of my investiture as county judge. All city courts in Washington County, including Chipley, had already relinquished their court to the county, with the exception of Ebro. On that deadline date, court cases initiated in Ebro passed to county court. While researching old newspapers in the archives of the Washington County News for history of J. D. and Pauline Nepper, the Nov. 25, 1971, issue gave the story of Dr. John V. Philpot of Chipley and his case with the city of Chipley regarding the city’s legal authority to assess a $50 annual license fee for his medical practice within the city. The city’s mayor, Edward W. (Jack) Wood, acting in his dual role as city judge, had ruled Dr. Philpot was guilty of not paying the fee and levied a $150 ne against the doctor. The article explained more details of the entire case, including that Dr. Philpot had appealed the matter to the Appeals Court, which in this situation, took it before the Circuit Court where Circuit Judge, W. L. Fitzpatrick was assigned to the case. It appears the proceedings might have ended up in Florida’s Supreme Court. Dr. Philpot’s attorney was Dale Ferguson of Lake City and Chipley City Attorney William J. Mongoven represented the city in the matter. Those interested can easily nd more complete details in the les of the local newspaper. This entire story is one that could have easily been included in the 2006 Heritage of Washington County Book. Maybe this column will, to some degree, compensate for its absence. See you all next week.

Case in point: Daylight Saving Time. It’s all Ben’s fault. Daylight Saving Time – basically taking an hour off one end of the day and adding it to the morning of the next – was rst proposed by Benjamin Franklin while he was serving as an American delegate in Paris. Franklin wrote a letter to a Paris newspaper suggesting it. He was kidding. Others latched onto the idea, though, and ran with it. It’s amazing how not being able to hear a person’s tone in written correspondence can limit, or alter, perception of the message. If only Ben would have drawn a little smiley face by his suggestion, perhaps his friends would have realized he was kidding, instead of setting forth this practice. Instead, like clockwork (pun intended), we set our clocks forward each Spring and revert to standard time in the Fall. Like many, I resent this practice, especially when it’s time to “Spring forward.” I know I’ll be getting my hour back in a few months, but that does little to ease my displeasure. It takes a while to adjust to the jetlag-like feeling of getting up earlier and getting to bed later. Each Spring, it seems as though my children feel that way, too. There’s no pleasant way to tell them, as they whine about having to get up earlier for school, that I’m just as upset about bedtime being pushed farther away. Adjusting our clocks twice a year helps my family discover, we have somehow acquired at least ve more timepieces than we had six months prior. Still, I am diligent about clock-setting duty. Arising in a sleepy fog and staring bleary-eyed at a device that might be off by an hour, making me ridiculously early, or late, is not worth the risk. Even my bathroom scale is set a pound forward or back, and the thermometer on the front porch obediently drops or rises a degree, depending on the season. One day, all our devices will set themselves, like my faithful cell phone which, thankfully, has the thoughtful consideration to switch back and forth between Eastern and Central as I cross time zones to and from my sister’s home in Tallahassee. Don’t get me wrong; I’m all for saving time. As a busy mom, I’d love to save more, but I have yet to gure out where my savings are going. If we’re saving so much time, can someone tell me where we’re keeping it so I can stop by after work and pick up a few bags? I suppose I should just be grateful ‘ol Ben didn’t propose something really crazy – like world currency. Where can I get a bag of ‘saved’ time? CAROL KENT Editor If you’re a full-time, taxpaying Florida resident, Reubin Askew made a difference in your life. The state’s judicial system and tax structure, as well as its progress over the past 40 years toward racial and gender equality in public jobs, all owe something to the man who was governor from 1971 to 1979. “He helped lead Florida to enormous growth and was a trailblazer for good government,” Gov. Rick Scott said. He was also a trailblazer in leading the judiciary out of the swamp of partisan politics. During his rst year in of ce, he pushed for — and won — a judicial overhaul that included the nonpartisan election of judges. He introduced a system, still in effect, whereby Floridians vote at regular intervals on whether to retain state Supreme Court justices and appellate court judges. He instituted nominating commissions for judicial appointments so as to limit political in uence. He crusaded for an overhaul of Florida’s tax laws and persuaded voters to approve a corporate income tax. He also persuaded voters to adopt a constitutional amendment requiring public of cials to disclose their incomes and net worth. He integrated the Florida Highway Patrol. He appointed the rst black in a century to the Florida Cabinet, and also the rst woman. He named the rst black justice to the Florida Supreme Court. In the late 1960s and early ’70s, busing students across town to achieve racial balance in public schools was a bitterly contested policy nationwide. A previous governor had declared it illegal in Florida. In keeping with his progressive views, Reubin Askew fought against the busing ban. In 1975, he pardoned two black men who had spent 12 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of killing two white service station attendants in Port St. Joe. “It was a decision that cost Askew votes\ in the Panhandle — his home region — when he ran for re-election,” The Associated Press reported. “He always stood up for what he believed in, whether people believed in him or not,” a niece, Linda Randes of Shalimar, told the Daily News’ Wendy Victora. Reubin Askew died March 13 in Tallahassee. He was 85. He will be missed in a state that, 35 years after he left the governor’s mansion, still pro ts from his wisdom. ‘He stood for what he believed in’ Further research revealed J. D. Nepper was in Washington County as early as 1881-1883. He was one of the rst Railroad Agents. Our VIEW Adjusting the clock again just doesn’t seem enough

Local Washington County News | A5 Wednesday, March 19, 2014 Special to The News The First Baptist Church in Bonifay will host the annual evangelistic meeting Thursday and Friday, March 27-28. “Each day, Florida Baptists will be encouraged and equipped by dynamic speakers and teachers from across the country,” said David Burton, lead strategist the Florida Baptist Convention’s Evangelism Group, which sponsors the event. The theme of the twoday meeting is “LoveShare,” focusing on the Convention’s “Love Your Neighbor, Share Christ” evangelistic emphasis. “An evangelism conference with a clear focus on reaching others for Christ is critical because so often we nd churches and pastors losing their edge and heart for evangelism,” Burton said. “Too many books, authors and conferences tell us what doesn’t work today without ever showing and telling what does work. Sometimes complacency sets in the people our pastors are serving,” he said. “We intend to have a pastor return to his church with fresh, new energy, insight and compassion to help these people push back darkness and lostness.” The Panhandle conference in Bonifay will feature Garland; John Sullivan, executive director-treasurer of the Florida Baptist Convention; and Craig Conner, pastor of First Baptist Church in Panama City on Thursday night. The Friday night session will offer Sullivan, Maynard and Herb Reavis, pastor of North Jacksonville Baptist Church in Jacksonville. Also on the program is Robert Bradow with Cross Heir Out tters, a nondenominational Christian ministry reaching outdoorsmen with the Good News through sportsman banquets, beast feast and outdoor expos. “From the reports I have received, pastors who are serving in the Panhandle region—many who are ministering in small and rural communities—are excited to see an evangelism conference with discussions and speakers geared to their unique setting,” Burton said. During the two events, panel discussions and seminars will be led by pastors of Florida Baptist churches that are effectively reaching their communities for Christ. The meeting will also feature Phillip Herrington, pastor of First Baptist Church in Live Oak; Shelly Chandler, pastor of the host church; Jackie Watts, pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Madison; and Ken Harrison, pastor of Northside Baptist Church in Ponce de Leon. Other seminar leaders include Ron Lentine, pastor of Myrtle Grove Baptist Church in Pensacola; Shawn Johnson, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dowling Park; and Rich Kincl, pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Tallahassee. Throughout the meeting, ministry exhibits designed to help churches increase their evangelistic activities will be on display including the Strength Team, illusionist Brock Gill and CrossHeir Out tters. Morning sessions will convene at 9:15 a.m. on all four days; afternoon sessions from 1:20-4:50 p.m.; and evening sessions begin at 6:45 p.m. No pre-registration is required to attend any of the meetings, which are provided free of charge as a Cooperative Program ministry. a nd ?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# ''J U $& b)% ]& C 9W'1 WJ=W &#" (6 #(, 2 ,#% (:W e Steam for F ree! *Not All items can be steamed.

Local A6 | Washington County News Wednesday, March 19, 2014 TALLAHASSEE (AP) — A measure aimed at strengthening Florida’s public records laws moved easily through a Senate committee Thursday, co incidentally the same day former Gov. Reubin Askew died. He had led the campaign to pass Florida’s 1976 Sun shine Amendment, which required nancial disclo sure by all public ofcials, candidates and employees. The bill, sponsored by state Sen. Jeremy Ring, pleases open government advocates as an ambitious effort that would limit fees for record searches, dene records that are conden tial or exempt in keeping with existing court deci sions and require private contractors for govern ment agencies to inform that agency before it denies a public records request. The bill (SB 1648) also requires public agencies to train all employees on the state’s open records laws. “It is interesting that we did the bill the day (Askew) passed away, as he was a great pioneer of open government,” said Ring, a Broward County Democrat. “The last time we’ve had bills to really improve the state’s public records law was in the ’90s,” said Bar bara Petersen, president of the First Amendment Foundation, a media-fund ed group that monitors the government’s compliance with Sunshine laws. She provided input on the leg islation. “It’s getting bet ter, I have to say.” Overall, the Florida Legislature is consider ing more bills dealing with public records this year than in the past few years, Petersen said. “Which surprises me, because we usually see fewer in an election year and normally this time of year have about half as many,” said Petersen, whose foundation is track ing 125 bills. The founda tion has singled out seven as being particularly bad, while noting ve are moves in the right direction, in cluding Ring’s bill, which has a House companion (HB 1151). Most of the bills moving through the Legislature seek exemptions to the Sunshine law rather than to enhance it, adding to the almost 1,000 exemptions already in place. The bills seek to exempt: • Email addresses held by a tax collector for the purpose of sending tax notices to individuals (HB 421 and SB 538). • Personal identifying information in auto acci dent reports (HB 865 and SB 1046). • Unsolicited proposals received by a university board of trustees, stipu lating that the proposals will be exempt from public disclosure until the board receives and ranks the proposals (HB 543). • The identication of current or former employ ees of the state Depart ment of Health whose du ties include the investiga tion of complaints against health care practitioners or the inspection of facili ties licensed through the department (SB 390). • Records collected that deal with drug testing of public ofcials (HB 1437). • Information identify ing applicants for the posi tion of president or dean of a public university or college, and meetings held for the purpose of vetting those applicants (HB 135 and SB 728). Bills put more teeth in open records laws New test to replace FCAT next year TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Flori da is ready to part ways with the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, a main stay in the state’s schools for more than a decade. Pam Stewart, the state’s education commissioner, announced Monday she has approved a six-year contract with a not-forprot outt to develop a new test that students will be required to take a year from now. “I feel very condent that it is the best choice for Florida’s students and the assessment is going to measure their progress and achievement on Florida standards,” Stewart said. Stewart’s decision to ap prove the $220 million con tract with American Insti tutes for Research marks another signicant step to ward the state’s transition away from the FCAT, which has drawn praise and scorn for the way it transformed the state’s public schools. The new tests will in clude more than the mul tiple-choice questions that are a framework for many standardized tests, includ ing the FCAT. The commis sioner also said Monday that students will use paper and pencil to complete the tests initially, but schools gradually will transition to online tests. In a letter sent to prin cipals Monday, Stewart said students will be asked to create graphs, interact with test content “and write and respond in different ways than they would on traditional tests.” She said the new questions will as sess “higher order think ing skills” that are part of the “higher expectations” included in the state’s new standards. Former Gov. Jeb Bush made the FCAT the centerpiece of his A-through-F school grad ing system. Test results not only were used to evaluate schools but also to deter mine whether third-grad ers should be held back and whether high school students were ready to graduate. The unnamed test will be based on a new set of stan dards that are based large ly on the contentious Com mon Core State Standards. Florida ofcials tweaked the math and English stan dards earlier this year to include such items as a re quirement for cursive writ ing. But this change has not ended the backlash against Common Core. Florida initially was part of a national consortium developing a Common Core test, but the state pulled out of the Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness at the urging of Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders. The group selected Mon day has ties to a different national consortium that is developing its own Com mon Core test but Stewart insisted the new test will be Florida-specic. She did note, however, the type of questions used on the test was being tried out rst this year in Utah. Randy Osborne, who works with the group Flor ida Parents Against Com mon Core, called the new testing vendor an “evil twin” to the previous group the state worked with. Special to The News TALLAHASSEE — During the meeting of the Florida Cabinet on March 6, Gov. Rick Scott recognized Sgt. Stephen Gillman and Offi cers Sophia White, Jamie Fischer and Timothy Smith of Holmes Correctional In stitution with the Medal of Heroism for their coura geous actions. On Aug. 18, 2013, an inmate abruptly attacked Gillman dur ing the noon meal at HCI. White, Fischer and Smith immediately responded to the assault as they ob served Gillman slashed in the head and back with a pick-style weapon by the in mate. The officers subdued the inmate and placed him in restraints. The attack was a gang “hit” that had been put out on Gillman because he identified a staff member for supplying tobacco and other contraband items to the inmates at the facility, resulting in the arrest of the employee. “It is an honor for me to present the Medal of Heroism to these brave of ficers,” Scott said. “Their quick response helped pre vent other individuals from getting harmed. Not only did they demonstrate their dedication to service and their commitment to public safety, but also kept their fellow correctional officers and inmates safe.” “The swift action taken by Sgt. Gillman and Of ficers White, Fischer and Smith is a testament to their devotion and shows they acted to come to the aid of one of their own and not give a second thought to their own personal safe ty,” Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Mi chael Crews. “Their selfless actions saved the life of their col league and the lives of in mates,” Crews said. “I ap plaud the response of these officers and appreciate the governor for recognizing them with this most-de served medal.” The Medal of Heroism is given to any law en forcement or correctional officer, firefighter, emer gency medical technician or paramedic who has dis tinguished himself or her self by risking his or her life deliberately above and beyond the call of duty and must have engaged in haz ardous or perilous activi ties to preserve lives with the knowledge that such activities might result in great personal harm.

By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com EL PASO, Texas — Alex Hamilton’s game clearly has successfully transitioned to Louisiana Tech. Next on the agenda is helping the Bulldogs reach the NCAA tournament. Hamilton, a 20-year-old sophomore, is Louisiana Tech’s leading scorer this season as the Bulldogs gear up for a showdown with ei ther UAB or Charlotte to night in the Conference USA men’s basketball tour nament quarterfinals. UAB and Charlotte played late Wednesday night; the re sult was unavailable before press time. Hamilton, 6-foot-4, 180 pounds, was named a thirdteam all-conference selec tion after averaging a teambest 14.5 points per game along with three assists and 1.5 steals per game. The aggressive, drive-thelane mentality he possessed when he led Chipley to a Class 1A state championship two years ago is still very much embedded in his style of play at Louisiana Tech (25-6). “That’s still the strongest part of my game,” Hamilton said. “I’m steadily working on my jump shot, and it’s definitely improving. The more experience I get, the easier the game gets for me. I still go to the rim a lot and finish with contact. That’s what I do.” Hamilton started only three games for the Bull dogs as a freshman, but two of those were starts in the NIT at season’s end. That served as a precursor to an expanded role this season in which he has started all 31 games and has played the second-most minutes on the team. Hamilton seemed to as sert himself more on the offensive end as the season progressed, particularly during a six-game stretch in January in which he at tempted 10 or more shots from the field in each of those games. The Bulldogs boast four players with a scoring average in double figures, however, so he hasn’t had to put his team’s success solely on his shoulders. “I have a big role, but we have a lot of players and it can be any player’s night on any night,” Hamilton said. “I can have five points, and somebody else has 25. Or I can go for 30, and somebody else goes for five. … In high school I was starting, and I was used to starting. Coming off the bench early was a big adjustment for me because I was used to a starting role. “When I came in, I took what (opposing defenses) gave me. If you need me to put up shots, I will. If my teammates are open, I will find the open man. If you give me a shot, I’ll take it and I’ll make it. I’m playing with confidence.” The Bulldogs have won eight of their last nine games and finished the regu lar season tied with three other teams atop the Conference USA standings with a 13-3 league mark. LaTech ranks just 68th in the country in RPI, a metric heavily relied upon by the selection com mittee that determines the 64 teams filling the NCAA tournament field each year. Hamilton said the Bulldogs still have some room to im prove but are playing “close” to their best basketball of the season. He said rebounding and defense will determine their fate in the conference tournament. He stopped short of saying LaTech deserves an at-large bid in the NCAA tour nament if the Bulldogs fail to win the league tourney. “They said there’s been talk about it, but we shouldn’t have to de pend on that,” Hamilton said. “We should take care of our business.” Special to the News Over the past two weeks, the Vernon boy’s weightlifting team has competed in two big meets. Last week, they traveled to Sneads for an 8 team meet. The Yellow Jackets came on top, scoring 69 points. Altha placed second in the meet with 33. In dividual winners for the Jack ets were Khalil Stephens in the 154 class, Traice Adams in the 183 class, JT Padgett in the 199 class, Darrion Peterson in the 219 class, and Marlon Stephens in the 238 class. Other lifters who contributed to the win by scoring points were Ryan Mal loy took second in the 139 class, Brandon Malloy was second in the 169 class and Daniel Riv eras was third, Austin Brown scored a second place in the 183 class, Jonshae Works finished fourth in the 199 class, Darrius Peterson was second in the 219 class, and Stoney Long placed second in the 238 class. This was a great showing for the Jacket lifters as will help guide them into their first state quali fier on March 24th at VHS. This week, the Jackets made a long road trip to Fort White for a 20 team invitational that in cluded last year’s State Runnerup in 1A as well as some very good 2A teams. The Jackets did not have their best day but finished 5th overall. Some key lifters saw a solid day. Those include Ryan Malloy who won the 139 class, Brandon Malloy finished third in the 154 class behind two possible state cham pion. Daniel Riveras finished second in a strong 169 class and posted his best total of the year. Darrion Peterson had his best day and finished fifth in the 219 class and Darrius Peterson also had his best day and finished sixth. Darrius set a milestone as well becoming the first Jack et lifter to record a 300 pound clean and jerk in a meet since Coach Johns arrived last year. Marlon Stephens rounded out the scoring for the Jackets by placing fourth in the 238 class. The next meet for VHS will be the state qualifier to be held at VHS at 11 a.m. Monday, March 24.

She has three children, ve grandchildren, and ve great-grandchildren and has spent much of her life in the role of both homemaker and caregiver to several family members. Special to Extra The Woman’s Club of Chipley held its March luncheon on Wednesday, March 12. This community service oriented organization’s main goal is to promote and give back to the community. Woman’s Club President Elaine Chadwell presented donations this month to the Chipley High School Chorus, the Library and the DARE program. The featured speaker for the St. Patrick’s Day themed luncheon was Circuit Court Judge Chris Patterson, who gave an informative talk on the old courthouse and the need for something to be done about its serious problems. He also gave a humorous but quite perplexing description of what they have to go through right now to conduct business in the temporary facilities they are currently using. Special to Extra Ralph Odell Ward was recently accepted into the Tree Farm system and as a Certied Stewardship Forest for his forest management efforts on his property. Ward says he cares deeply for his property and is dedicated to its proper management by managing the timber resources, water and soil management and promoting wildlife habitat. The property has been in Ward’s family since the early 1800s. Despite his almost 90 years, he still enjoys getting out on his property to look over his trees or feed the sh in his pond. Ward has a rich and fascinating history behind him. He grew up during the Depression when life wasn’t always easy, but nevertheless Ward looks back on his childhood with great fondness and wouldn’t trade it for anything. Ward also has a unique military history in which he served in three major conicts and in three different military branches. He joined the U.S. Coast Guard in 1942 and fought in WWII as a Seaman First Class Gunner’s Mate. After WWII, he joined the U.S. Army Air Corps, which became the U.S. Air Force in 1947. He also fought in the Korean War and Vietnam War and retired in 1967 as a Senior Master Sergeant. Ward had a renewed interest in the Tree Farm program after being involved with it in the past. He is active in managing his forestland, seeking assistance from the Florida Forest Service and his friend and neighbor, Jon Gould. Gould is a very involved landowner who is an active Tree Farmer and a member of the Florida Forestry Association Tree Farm committee. A Florida Forest Service rep. said the service is “very happy and honored” to work with individuals who show the long-term dedication and enthusiasm that Ward demonstrates toward forest stewardship.

His grandparents are Brenda (Rabon) Cumbie-Adams, Carlton Adams and the late Doyle R. Cumbie of Wicksburg, Ala., and Chipley, the late Erline Atkinson and the late Lee A. Davis of Dothan, Ala.

Austin is now employed with FreightCar America in Muscle Shoals, Ala. Special to Extra The beginning of March brought new changes and new members to the BHS Junior Beta Club. The young organization was excited to welcome new members into their award winning organization. “We are so proud that these new students chose to join our honor society: They choose to work hard every day, participate in extracurricular activities and athletics, and make the grades it takes to be asked to join,” Donna Mollet, Club Sponsor said. New members inducted were: Matthew Baxley, Willie Beall, Gabe Collins, Nathan Hobbs, Mariah Mancill, Cade Mollet, Tristen Nored, Christopher Price, Dane Purvee, Charlize Rogers, Kynzie Strickland, Jacee Ward, Isabella Watford, and Jake Zauner. The club recently competed on the State level in December and placed in several categories, securing them a spot at Nationals. The team will head to Virginia June 21-24 to compete against other clubs from across the nation. By Lisa Mathews BHS teacher Special to Extra Far too soon, the world will be left to rely on only memoirs and videos to learn the lessons of the Holocaust. The chances of personally hearing the poignant, powerful and tragic stories of Holocaust survivors are drastically dwindling. As many educators say, “To meet Holocaust survivors in person is to touch history.” No two stories are exactly alike, but the sense of the story – the impact of terror, deprivation and personal loss – is what truly makes every event such as this in nitely memorable. It is dif cult to describe the feeling of awe a person experiences when hearing history from a person who lived it. On Nov. 13, 2013, my ninth grade Holocaust class had the opportunity to “touch history” as they witnessed a true Holocaust survivor Dr. Alan Hall, share his story and he managed to overcome this horri c event. This experience will be one that my students will remember forever and will give the opportunity to help others and bear witness so that this period of history is never forgotten and the legacy of the survivors remains alive. Halie Bodie was one of several students who was able to witness the account of events as shared by Dr. Alan Hall. “This class has taught me that everyone is equal. No one should be judged on their appearance or their race. I’ve scratched out racial diversity and inserted family and equal. We in the United States should be all the more thankful for the freedom and religious tolerance we enjoy. And we should always remember the lessons learned from the Holocaust, in hope that we stay vigilant against such inhumanity now and in the future. This class has had the most impact on my life than anything that I can imagine. I’m truly blessed to have this experience.” Madison Sketo also remarked, “Sitting and listening to Alan Hall was one of the most inspirational and touching experiences of my entire life. Throughout this year I have listened and learned about the unfortunate events of the Holocaust, but to actually experience the history from Mr. Hall’s point of view gave me a sense of humility. I am blessed to have a Holocaust class and be able to learn about the events in a deep and informative way, and listening to Alan Hall was an experience that I will never forget. I feel like my entitlement has gone away and my understanding of life is deeper.” BHS students re ect on Holocaust SPECIAL TO EXTRA Students from Bethlehem High School say the visit with Holocaust survivor Dr. Alan Hall made a lasting impression. Bethlehem Junior Beta Club inducts new members SPECIAL TO EXTRA Students inducted into the Bethlehem Junior Beta Club included Matthew Baxley, Willie Beall, Gabe Collins, Nathan Hobbs, Mariah Mancill, Cade Mollet, Tristen Nored, Christopher Price, Dane Purvee, Charlize Rogers, Kynzie Strickland, Jacee Ward, Isabella Watford, and Jake Zauner.

Faith EVENTS Matters of health have become big business in our generation. Even the government is trying to wrestle with the enormous problems of healthcare has created. Unfortunately, everybody has jumped onto this bandwagon. If you watch, TV infomercials, you will nd most of them have to do with some aspect of health. Everyone boasts of some healing through chemistry or therapy or psychology or even some exercise gizmo. Everybody seems to have the magic “something,” that will bring the much coveted health to any person who applies their program. All kinds of solutions are available to make you live longer, live happier and live to the fullest extent of human experience. Enter the televangelist. Into this arena comes the proverbial Elmer Gantry’s of our generation not to be outdone. All kinds of gimmicks are employed to market their so-called healing powers. Everything from “Miracle Springwater,” to “blood red Prayer Cloths.” The problem is so many take this seriously enough to support it with millions of dollars which I believe to be a neat trick of the enemy to diverge money from legitimate areas of evangelism. If this matter were not so dangerous it would be right down humorous. But the “on-air” heretics are doing serious damage to the true cause of Christ and his church in this generation. If these boasters have the power they boast of, why is it that it only happens when camera lights are on? Why not go down to the pediatric ward and lay hands on all those innocent young infants suffering from some disease? Why not put the so-called miraculous power to work for good without any consideration of personal compensation or recognition? Marketing the gospel has become one of the great heresies of our generation and is responsible, to a great degree, for the detrimental state of the evangelical church in America. It has become highly impossible to run a local church without employing the latest gimmicks and techno-wonders. A plague of contemporary Christianity today are those who use aspects of the gospel for selfpromotion. The call goes out, “Expect your miracle today,” and “Come see a miracle,” all in an effort to draw the curious to their meetings under the guise of proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. Today, the gospel is Big Business and plenty are willing to exploit this aspect to further their personal advantage. In a sermon once, Dr. A. W. Tozer commented, “I noticed there are thousands of people using missions and healing and prophecy and the deeper life and all the rest for no other purpose than secretly promoting their own private interest.” He said that back in the early 1960s, what would he say today? In this context, healing has become big business. From the old canvas tent campaigns of another generation to TV and Internet today, healing is a marketable commodity. Following the death of a world famous “Faith healer,” the person said he thought Dr. Simpson would have been a close associate of his. This made me question whether the person knew as much about Simpson as he thought. Throughout his long ministry, Simpson never contemplated using any element of the gospel to bring him recognition or remuneration. His sole business was reaching the lost world for Jesus Christ. A visitor in the Simpson home once discovered the secret to Simpson’s great ministry. He happened to get up early in the morning and heard a noise in Simpson’s study. The door was ajar so peeking in he discovered Simpson draped over a globe of the world sobbing as though his heart would break for the lost world. Simpson had a passion that could never be satiated by any personal exploitation of the gospel. His ministry was balanced theologically. That is where the Fourfold Gospel message comes in. Jesus Christ our: Savior, Sancti er, Healer and Coming King embraces the gospel in a very balanced fashion. At the Gospel Tabernacle in New York City where Dr. Simpson was the founding pastor, he had special Friday healing services. Many people would come and be anointed and prayed for healing. Simpson did something rather strange, at least from our point of view today. He often would give the healing message and then when it came time for people to come to be anointed and prayed for he retired to another part of the building and gave himself to intercessory prayer. He did not want the people who had come for prayer to think that healing had anything whatsoever to do with him. He refused to be a healing celebrity. A.B. Simpson and the ‘Business’ of healing DR.

Wilfred D. HH eart Marguerite Lois Swindle Holland, a native of Bonifay, and a 64 year resident of Weaverville, Calif., died Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014 as a result of a stroke suffered at her home. Marguerite was the fourth child of Jesse C. and Eva Lois Kelly Swindle. Her father owned and operated the Holmes County Hardware Store in Bonifay as well as the ice house and Hoover’s Mill. Her older siblings were Kelly F. Swindle, Mary Sue Parker and Jesse C. Swindle, Jr., all former residents of Bonifay. When Marguerite was only eight years old, their mother died four days after the birth of their baby sister Martha Nell. So, having lost her own mothers at such a young age Marguerite was passionate about providing love and support to her own children and many others. She was a Brownie Scout and Girl Scout Troop leader, a den mother for Cub Scouts, and a volunteer in kindergarten classrooms at Weaverville Elementary. He children’s friends were always welcome in her home for a single meal or a lengthy stay, including AFS exchange students. Over the years Marguerite was an active member of both the Church of Nazarene and the Trinity Congregational Church. She sang in the choir, taught Sunday school classes and gave rides everywhere to friends. When relatives or friends visited, she delighted in giving them a rst class tour of the beautiful California countryside as well as visits all around the San Francisco area. Her wide circle of friends was precious to her, including those she knew through her church and community afliations, those in the Sewing Club to which she belonged for over 60 ears, and those with whom she played countless games of bridge. Desperately wanting to attend college but unable to because of family circumstances and the onset of World War II, Marguerite became an avid life-long learner. She was a voracious reader, loved to travel, and took classes in horticulture and computers well into her 80s. In addition, among her many self-taught talents were cooking and sewing. Her fried chicken and key lime pie were legend around the Weaverville area and her lush yards and gardens were something to behold. Many of her favorite plants were given to her by friends as they shared with each other through the years. In declining health since a stroke our years ago, Marguerite was adamant that she wanted to live out her days in the serene peace of her wooded hillside home. It was the place she and her husband Jim had built on Oregon Street in 1956. There, they had raised their family. She was able to do this because her loving daughter, Emily, moved from her home in Davis, Calif., to live with her and care for her. Together, Emily and her husband Steve made sure that her desire for independence was honored while also giving her the daily help and companionship she needed. The family is very thankful to the staff at Trinity County Hospital and Carole Main for the exceptional care and support given to Marguerite. It also meant so much to everyone that her any church friends regularly visited and called. She was preceded in death by her husband, James A. Holland and son, James Timothy Holland. She is survived by her daughter, Barbara Holland Chapman and her husband, John of Chapel Hill, N.C, Emily Holland Ohrwall and her husband, Steve of Davis and Weaverville, Calif.; son, Jesse A. Holland of Palo Cedro, Calif.; granddaughters, Andrea Holland of San Francisco, Calif., and Erica Holland of Los Angeles, Calif.; sister, Martha Braxton of Bonifay and many nieces, nephews, and extended family in the Bonifay area. A celebration of Marguerite’s life was held at the Trinity Congregational Church on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 11 a.m. Following the service, her family greeted friends in the parish hall where everyone in the local community was invited. Since Marguerite loved owers, many owers were sent in her honor. however, those who wished to do something besides owers were invited to consider making a donation to any organization that provides support and care for children in need., or anyone could make an offering to the Trinity Congregational Church memorial Fund, P.O.

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 B6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News By Frank Sargeant franksargeant@charter.net It might not feel like cobia season, with night temps still in the 40s, but the calendar and the sunrise times both say it is. Each year, cobia begin prowling Panhandle beaches sometime soon after March 1, and the parade continues through late April. Beach water temperature has been wavering around 68, and that denitely is in the zone for cobia—the sh start showing at around 65 most years, and the prime run continues until around the time it passes 72. The “brown bombers” can be spotted anywhere from 30 yards off the beach to several miles out. Just beyond the “green reef,” the secondary bar along much of the Panhandle shoreline is always a good place to start searching. They often travel in pods of two to six sh, and cruise along just a foot or two below the surface, making it easy to spot them for those who know what to look for. In fact, they look much like small sharks to an inexpert eye, swimming with the same slow, steady tail beat. Beach cobia typically weigh anywhere from 20 to 60 pounds, but far larger ones have been caught in waters of the northern Gulf, including several over 100 pounds taken from the Alabama shoreline, just beyond Florida’s Panhandle — the same sh that pass through Sunshine State waters wind up off Dauphin Island a few days later. The Florida record, caught near Destin, weighed 130 pounds, 1 ounce. The all-tackle IGFA record is 135 pounds, 9 ounces, for a sh taken off Australia. Cobia is one of the few species that is exactly the same throughout all the world’s temperate oceans, biologists say. Although the Panhandle cobia shery primarily targets sh cruising off the beaches, the species can be caught throughout the warmer months and into November most years around area wrecks, reefs, buoys, piers and other structures anywhere from depths of 10 feet on out to several hundred feet. Cobia are also noted for following large sea creatures closely — manta rays and whale sharks sometimes attract large schools, so anytime anglers spot one of these denizens it’s worth checking to see if there are cobia hanging under them. Even temporary structures may attract cobia—they sometimes stack up under shrimp boats at anchor, or beneath tankers moored offshore, waiting to come in and unload. Cobia also sometimes join kingsh and mackerel in following baitsh schools. They’re typically found on the outer edges of bait balls, while the mackerel clan will be inside slicing and dicing. Cobia look much like oversized remora’s, except that they lack the suction cup on the head. Biologists say they are not closely related, but everything from color to skin texture is similar, plus they share the tendency to hang with larger sea creatures. However, remora’s never attain larger sizes. Cobia tactics Classic cobia shing is sight shing, and there’s no where it’s practiced so frequently as in Panhandle waters from Apalachicola westward all the way to the barrier islands of Louisiana. The sh here show themselves, making it relatively easy to get in front of them and put a bait on their nose. Most area charterboat skippers who regularly chase cobia have their boats rigged with ying bridges or tuna towers, which gives them a much better view down into the water to spot the sh. Add a pair of polarized glasses and a few decades of experience and it’s no problem at all for the average skipper to locate sh frequently. For those who like to chase the sh out of their own boats, it’s smart to set up so that you’re traveling with the sun at your back. It’s easier to see the sh from about 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. when the sun is high, though sh seen at mid-day have often already had several baits ung at them and may be cautious. If you can spot a sh shortly after sunrise and be the rst to put a bait or lure on it, that sh will often become cobia llets. Those which have been hammered on by a half-dozen boats, on the other hand, totally might ignore your offerings. Cobia eat about anything which will t down their gullets, but they do have some favorite foods. Eels are near the top, and many Destin area skippers rely on these slippery critters to lure cobia in season. Eels are hard to handle and hard to put on the hook, and they don’t cast all that well, but if you can get a lively one in front of a cobia, you rarely will get a turn-down. A tip: put the eels on dry newspaper for a moment to remove some of the slime and you will nd them much easier to get on the hook. Almost as good, and much easier to handle and cast, are large soft plastic eel imitations — those with swimming tails and multiple hooks are often best. Cobia are also known as “crab-eaters,” and that name gives you a clue as to another favorite food; small crabs, about 3 inches across, make excellent baits. Hook them through the outer points of the shell on a 3/0 extra strong short-shank live bait hook. Soft crab imitations like the avored models from GULP! also do the job at times. All sorts of baitsh catch cobia; pinsh are easy to get, durable and easy to cast. Blue runners are another favorite — very durable and active. Large scaled sardines also are excellent, though they’re pretty much a do-it-yourself bait since they don’t live well in bait tanks. Ditto for threadns, which have a very short lifespan but are good baits just after being sabikied aboard. Baits about 4 to 5 inches long are best for cobia 20 pounds and up. Cobia can also readily be caught on all sorts of articial lures, particularly when they rst show up and have not been hammered on; a ounce jig with a 5 to 7 inch shad tail often does the job, as do shad-imitating swimbaits like the 1-ounce Tsunami Swimshad. Big topwaters like the Super Spook also can fool them at times. Presentation is everything Presentation is everything in successful cobia shing. First trick is to get the boat in the right position. As in shing tarpon, you can rarely catch sh by motoring up on them from behind. The trick is to spot the sh, then motor in a wide arc around them, then shut down and let the sh swim into range. Quiet engines are a denite advantage — inboards and fourstroke outboards generally can get closer than older two-stroke rigs. However, those equipped with powerful electric trolling motors on center-console rigs can often slip in very close without spooking the sh. Get yourself into range and put a long cast about 10 feet ahead of them. If you’re shing live bait, just let it sit and the sh often will do the rest. If you’re throwing articials, pull the lure quartering away from them and you’re likely to get bit. Remember, real bait never attacks the sh — cobia, like all species, take articials best when they appear to be trying to escape. Best tackle for chasing cobia these days is a big offshore spinning rig — these allow throwing lighter baits farther than anyone can manage with even the most skilled use of revolving spook rigs.An 8-foot, medium-heavy rod with two-hand grip and the spool loaded with 30 to 50 pound braided line will do the job. Add several feet of 40 to 60 pound uorocarbon leader between line and hook, tying it in with a double uni-knot. The ght starts late Cobia are very strong sh, but at times they seem almost docile on the hook. If you stick them at a distance, then crank them in without really leaning on them — you can do this by easing the boat close as you reel — you can often have them all the way to the boat before they know the jig is up, so to speak. The other advantage of this “stealth ght” is that you often will get a second or third cobia following the hooked sh — drop a live bait next to them and you will have two cobia rather than one. The ght actually starts when you stick the sh with the gaff and haul it into the boat. No species goes more berserk than the cobia when it hits the deck — the big ones are powerful and actually dangerous — they can knock a man down, sprain ankles and send tackle sailing overboard. The best tactic, if you have a giant ice chest or sh box, is to jerk them directly into the box, slam down the lid and sit on it until the ruckus subsides. This is assuming you want to keep your sh, of course. They are one of the tastiest of nearshore sh, with rm white llets that are good broiled, blackened or baked — I release most species but it’s hard to let a cobia go. The limit is one cobia per person per day, or six per boat, whichever is less. Minimum length is 33 inches to the fork of the tail. There are numerous cobia tournaments in the area in March and April — check out these two for a start: www.destin cobiatournament.com and www.cobiaworld championships.com. SPECIAL TO tiTI M es ES a A DVe E R tise TISE R The annual cobia run into Panhandle waters typically gets underway when water temperatures along the beach exceed 65 degrees, and it’s already at 68. Cobia just around the corner Tower boats make spotting cobia much easier as they cruise at the surface just outside the “green reef” a bar close to the beach. Outdoors

Re-entry is important to all of us, especially since well have almost 300 inmates over the next year released in the area, Pestro said. We start talking about releasing them from the rst day they arrive, where we begin teaching them the tools needed to become healthy and more productive citizens. Jusino said, It is the mission of the Federal Bureau of Prisons to protect society by conning offenders in the controlled environments of prisons and community-based facilities that are safe, humane, costefcient, appropriately secure and that provide work and other self-improvement opportunities to assist offenders in becoming law-abiding citizens. Jusino said FCI Marianna was dedicated on Sept. 15, 1988, and sits on 230 acres of land, 50 of which are surrounded by a secure perimeter fence. The property once was owned by Graham Air Force Base and was Less about connement, more about re-entryused as a pilot training school during World War II and the Korean War. The facility consists of medium security for male inmates and minimum security for female inmates, Jusino said. The largest percentage of men inmates are imprisoned for drug offenses, with sex offenders coming in second and weapons, explosives and arson coming in third. For women, the largest percentage of inmates are imprisoned drug offenses, but then is followed by extortion, aggravated assault and kidnapping as second largest population and burglary, larceny and property offenses coming in third. She said services provided within the facility include food, health, correctional, unit management, correctional systems, education, recreation, religious, psychology/drug abuse, administration, computer, human resources, nancial management/ trust fund, facilities, safety re-entry and UNICOR. Mandatory programs include General Equivalency Diploma and English as a Second Language, and non-mandatory programs include vocational programs such as Adult Diversied Cooperative Training with Cosmetology, Culinary Arts and Building Maintenance, NCCER Building and Trades Core and Business Marketing, Plumbing, HVAC and Electrical Apprenticeships through the Department of Labor; Adult Continuing Education, which includes Learn to Speak English, Typing, Microsoft Ofce Applications, Real Estate, Taxes, Business Management, Finance, Resume Building and Legal Information; parenting classes; post-secondary education; leisure/law library services; and mock job fairs. FCI Mariannas staff is fully committed to the Bureau of Prisons mission statement to protect society by conning inmates in a safe environment and to provide re-entry programs to prevent recidivism, Jusino said. Re-entry begins on the rst day of incarceration, and all inmates are assessed through the Inmate Skills Development system, where skill decits are identied. The nine skill areas include Academic, Vocational/Career, Leisure, Character, Cognitive, Mental Health, Wellness, Daily Living and Interpersonal, and skill decit areas are linked to re-entry programs offered by our staff, volunteers and contractors. Pestro said they also are involved in many community service projects to become more involved in the community. The more involved they are in the community, the more likely they will not come back, and the more likely society will better accept them back, Pestro said. More and more, society is getting better at accepting them and more incentives are becoming available to employers to hire them. The more chances they have to get out there and work, the less likely they are to return to a correctional facility.

New test to replace FCAT next yearTALLAHASSEE (AP) Florida is ready to part ways with the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, a mainstay in the states schools for more than a decade. Pam Stewart, the states education commissioner, announced Monday she has approved a six-year contract with a not-forprot outt to develop a new test that students will be required to take a year from now. I feel very condent that it is the best choice for Floridas students and the assessment is going to measure their progress and achievement on Florida standards, Stewart said. Stewarts decision to approve the $220 million contract with American Institutes for Research marks another signicant step toward the states transition away from the FCAT, which has drawn praise and scorn for the way it transformed the states public schools. The new tests will include more than the multiple-choice questions that are a framework for many standardized tests, including the FCAT. The commissioner also said Monday that students will use paper and pencil to complete the tests initially, but schools gradually will transition to online tests. In a letter sent to principals Monday, Stewart said students will be asked to create graphs, interact with test content and write and respond in different ways than they would on traditional tests. She said the new questions will assess higher order thinking skills that are part of the higher expectations included in the states new standards. Former Gov. Jeb Bush made the FCAT the centerpiece of his A-through-F school grading system. Test results not only were used to evaluate schools but also to determine whether third-graders should be held back and whether high school students were ready to graduate. The unnamed test will be based on a new set of standards that are based largely on the contentious Common Core State Standards. Florida ofcials tweaked the math and English standards earlier this year to include such items as a requirement for cursive writing. But this change has not ended the backlash against Common Core. Florida initially was part of a national consortium developing a Common Core test, but the state pulled out of the Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness at the urging of Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders. The group selected Monday has ties to a different national consortium that is developing its own Common Core test but Stewart insisted the new test will be Florida-specic. She did note, however, the type of questions used on the test was being tried out rst this year in Utah. Randy Osborne, who works with the group Florida Parents Against Common Core, called the new testing vendor an evil twin to the previous group the state worked with. TALLAHASSEE (AP) The head of the Florida Democratic Party is contending that Republican Gov. Rick Scotts campaign broke the states campaign nance laws by shifting money between accounts. Election law complaints can be routine during an election year, but this one could be signicant: If conrmed, it could result in a ne of as much as $82 million. Allison Tant, chairwoman of the state party, led the complaint with the Florida Elections Commission late last week, naming both Scott and his political committee Lets Get to Work. The complaint maintains that the campaign broke the law when the Scott campaign transferred almost $27.4 million from one type of campaign account to another earlier this month. They have violated the law and the governor is supposed to uphold the law, Tant said. Republican Party of Florida chairman Lenny Curry defended Scotts campaign organization. Lets Get to Work is condent that they have done everything according to the standards of Florida election law, Curry said. Scott rst set up Lets Get to Work in 2010 as a way to help out his campaign for governor when he was challenging a Republican who had the backing of many GOP leaders. It was set up as an electioneering communication organization, which is allowed to take unlimited contributions but is subject to limits on how it can spend the money. These types of political organizations can run television ads as long as they dont use the words vote for or vote against. Scott kept Lets Get to Work intact after his victorious election in 2010, and since the summer of 2011 he has raised millions for the organization. The governor has accepted checks from a long list of prominent business and political heavyweights, including The Seminole Tribe of Florida, Florida Power & Light, Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, and the Republican Governors Association. On March 6, John French, the chairman of Lets Get to Work, told the state his organization was being disbanded as an electioneering communication organization. On the same day, a new political committee with the same name was formed, and the old organization gave an almost $27.4 million check to the new one. Under a new law passed last year by legislators, political committees have more exibility over how they can spend money. For example, a committee can give money directly to political parties, while an electioneering communication organization cannot. This means the new Lets Get to Work has more leeway on how it can spend its money. Democrats maintain state law prohibits an electioneering communication organization from donating directly to a political committee. French, however, says his action was legal because the rst organization was being dissolved and was disposing of its money.Dems say Scott campaign broke fundraising law I feel very condent that it is the best choice for Floridas students and the assessment is going to measure their progress and achievement on Florida standards.Pam Stewart Floridas education commissioner

It is hard to comprehend that on this date in 2006, the committee was told by Heritage Publishing consultants David and Alice Bice the Washington County Heritage Book was ready for proo ng, with a late June date already set aside for publishing. Eight years later, we are celebrating receiving 85 additional copies of the book on Jan. 9, representing the nal books from the 2012 fourth printing. The books are continuing to sell fast! They are available from me at $64.20 in Chipley or $72 when mailed. Contact me at 850 638-1016, or email: perry1000@bellsouth.net for your copy. My involvement in the book and 11 years of writing the Prattle, has contributed to the name historian and genealogist having been bestowed upon me. I am grossly overrated in both areas, but I admit enjoying the titles! Joni Franklin Rogers, legal specialist to Attorney Jeff Goodman, inquired recently if I knew the history of the house the law rm has recently moved into on Main Street in Chipley. My recent Prattle, titled Fruit Basket Turnover, mentioned Jeffs change of location, and Attorney Michelle Tagert also has her of ce there. After only a few seconds, it came to me that the property was the home of J. D. (Jim) Nepper and wife, Pauline Williams Nepper. My reason for knowing this information came from being summoned by Sheriff Bryant Thurman on Nov. 24, 1971, to serve on the Coroners Jury, empaneled by County Judge A. K. Shuler, to investigate the unattended death of Mrs. Nepper. The ndings were that she had died of natural causes. This ladys funeral was conducted as a 3 p.m. graveside service in Chipleys Glenwood Cemetery on Nov. 25, 1971. The Rev. H. P. Childs, pastor of First United Methodist Church, of ciated the funeral, which was entrusted to Brown Funeral Home of Chipley. Her tombstone shows the date of birth as June 20, 1894, and date of death as Nov. 17, 1971. She was buried alongside of her husband, J. D. Nepper, and an infant child, who died at childbirth on Nov. 19, 1913 (tombstone for James Daniel Nepper shows date of birth as Jan. 12, 1890, and date of death as August 26, 1949). Surviving Pauline Nepper in 1971 was her daughter, Mrs. Buck Williams of Huntsville, Ala. (tombstone at Glenwood shows her as Emily Nepper Williams, date of birth Jan. 30, 1921, and date of death as June 25, 2009). Pauline had two sisters, Mrs. Blanche Horn of Pensacola and Mrs. M. E. Granter of Tampa. There were three grandchildren and one great-grand child surviving. Further research revealed J. D. Nepper was in Washington County as early as 1881-1883. He was one of the rst Railroad Agents, who acted as administrator of the depot when the rst train of 1882 graced our city, initiating rail traf c for both freight and passenger service from Jacksonville to Pensacola. Marriage Records in Washington County re ect that J. D. Nepper and Pauline Williams were married on Feb. 13, 1913. These records also lists the marriage of Mattie A. Nepper and George Myers on Nov. 11, 1913. She is apparently the sister of J. D. Nepper. Washington, Floridas Twelfth County, authored by E. W. (Judge) Carswell, shows in 1917, J. D. Nepper was included in a mammoth group of young men who were called for examination by a select committee to determine their eligibility for the military draft during World War I. In late 1922, this gentleman was elected to serve on the city council of Chipley. In 1926, he was serving in the dual role of mayor and judge of the city court, a practice that was carried on until the Constitutional Revision of Article 6, governing courts of Florida, was passed in 1969, narrowing courts of the state to a two tier system, county court and circuit court. Jan. 1, 1977 was established as the time all municipal courts would be abolished, and jurisdiction for replacing those courts passed to the county judge of the county. Ironically, that was the year of my investiture as county judge. All city courts in Washington County, including Chipley, had already relinquished their court to the county, with the exception of Ebro. On that deadline date, court cases initiated in Ebro passed to county court. While researching old newspapers in the archives of the Washington County News for history of J. D. and Pauline Nepper, the Nov. 25, 1971, issue gave the story of Dr. John V. Philpot of Chipley and his case with the city of Chipley regarding the citys legal authority to assess a $50 annual license fee for his medical practice within the city. The citys mayor, Edward W. (Jack) Wood, acting in his dual role as city judge, had ruled Dr. Philpot was guilty of not paying the fee and levied a $150 ne against the doctor. The article explained more details of the entire case, including that Dr. Philpot had appealed the matter to the Appeals Court, which in this situation, took it before the Circuit Court where Circuit Judge, W. L. Fitzpatrick was assigned to the case. It appears the proceedings might have ended up in Floridas Supreme Court. Dr. Philpots attorney was Dale Ferguson of Lake City and Chipley City Attorney William J. Mongoven represented the city in the matter. Those interested can easily nd more complete details in the les of the local newspaper. This entire story is one that could have easily been included in the 2006 Heritage of Washington County Book. Maybe this column will, to some degree, compensate for its absence. See you all next week.

Case in point: Daylight Saving Time. Its all Bens fault. Daylight Saving Time basically taking an hour off one end of the day and adding it to the morning of the next was rst proposed by Benjamin Franklin while he was serving as an American delegate in Paris. Franklin wrote a letter to a Paris newspaper suggesting it. He was kidding. Others latched onto the idea, though, and ran with it. Its amazing how not being able to hear a persons tone in written correspondence can limit, or alter, perception of the message. If only Ben would have drawn a little smiley face by his suggestion, perhaps his friends would have realized he was kidding, instead of setting forth this practice. Instead, like clockwork (pun intended), we set our clocks forward each Spring and revert to standard time in the Fall. Like many, I resent this practice, especially when its time to Spring forward. I know Ill be getting my hour back in a few months, but that does little to ease my displeasure. It takes a while to adjust to the jetlag-like feeling of getting up earlier and getting to bed later. Each Spring, it seems as though my children feel that way, too. Theres no pleasant way to tell them, as they whine about having to get up earlier for school, that Im just as upset about bedtime being pushed farther away. Adjusting our clocks twice a year helps my family discover, we have somehow acquired at least ve more timepieces than we had six months prior. Still, I am diligent about clock-setting duty. Arising in a sleepy fog and staring bleary-eyed at a device that might be off by an hour, making me ridiculously early, or late, is not worth the risk. Even my bathroom scale is set a pound forward or back, and the thermometer on the front porch obediently drops or rises a degree, depending on the season. One day, all our devices will set themselves, like my faithful cell phone which, thankfully, has the thoughtful consideration to switch back and forth between Eastern and Central as I cross time zones to and from my sisters home in Tallahassee. Dont get me wrong; Im all for saving time. As a busy mom, Id love to save more, but I have yet to gure out where my savings are going. If were saving so much time, can someone tell me where were keeping it so I can stop by after work and pick up a few bags? I suppose I should just be grateful ol Ben didnt propose something really crazy like world currency. Where can I get a bag of saved time? CAROL KENTEditor If youre a full-time, taxpaying Florida resident, Reubin Askew made a difference in your life. The states judicial system and tax structure, as well as its progress over the past 40 years toward racial and gender equality in public jobs, all owe something to the man who was governor from 1971 to 1979. He helped lead Florida to enormous growth and was a trailblazer for good government, Gov. Rick Scott said. He was also a trailblazer in leading the judiciary out of the swamp of partisan politics. During his rst year in of ce, he pushed for and won a judicial overhaul that included the nonpartisan election of judges. He introduced a system, still in effect, whereby Floridians vote at regular intervals on whether to retain state Supreme Court justices and appellate court judges. He instituted nominating commissions for judicial appointments so as to limit political in uence. He crusaded for an overhaul of Floridas tax laws and persuaded voters to approve a corporate income tax. He also persuaded voters to adopt a constitutional amendment requiring public of cials to disclose their incomes and net worth. He integrated the Florida Highway Patrol. He appointed the rst black in a century to the Florida Cabinet, and also the rst woman. He named the rst black justice to the Florida Supreme Court. In the late 1960s and early 70s, busing students across town to achieve racial balance in public schools was a bitterly contested policy nationwide. A previous governor had declared it illegal in Florida. In keeping with his progressive views, Reubin Askew fought against the busing ban. In 1975, he pardoned two black men who had spent 12 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of killing two white service station attendants in Port St. Joe. It was a decision that cost Askew votes\ in the Panhandle his home region when he ran for re-election, The Associated Press reported. He always stood up for what he believed in, whether people believed in him or not, a niece, Linda Randes of Shalimar, told the Daily News Wendy Victora. Reubin Askew died March 13 in Tallahassee. He was 85. He will be missed in a state that, 35 years after he left the governors mansion, still pro ts from his wisdom. He stood for what he believed in Further research revealed J. D. Nepper was in Washington County as early as 1881-1883. He was one of the rst Railroad Agents. Our VIEWAdjusting the clock again just doesnt seem enough

LocalWashington County News | A5Wednesday, March 19, 2014Special to The NewsThe First Baptist Church in Bonifay will host the annual evangelistic meeting Thursday and Friday, March 27-28. Each day, Florida Baptists will be encouraged and equipped by dynamic speakers and teachers from across the country, said David Burton, lead strategist the Florida Baptist Conventions Evangelism Group, which sponsors the event. The theme of the twoday meeting is LoveShare, focusing on the Conventions Love Your Neighbor, Share Christ evangelistic emphasis. An evangelism conference with a clear focus on reaching others for Christ is critical because so often we nd churches and pastors losing their edge and heart for evangelism, Burton said. Too many books, authors and conferences tell us what doesnt work today without ever showing and telling what does work. Sometimes complacency sets in the people our pastors are serving, he said. We intend to have a pastor return to his church with fresh, new energy, insight and compassion to help these people push back darkness and lostness. The Panhandle conference in Bonifay will feature Garland; John Sullivan, executive director-treasurer of the Florida Baptist Convention; and Craig Conner, pastor of First Baptist Church in Panama City on Thursday night. The Friday night session will offer Sullivan, Maynard and Herb Reavis, pastor of North Jacksonville Baptist Church in Jacksonville. Also on the program is Robert Bradow with Cross Heir Out tters, a nondenominational Christian ministry reaching outdoorsmen with the Good News through sportsman banquets, beast feast and outdoor expos. From the reports I have received, pastors who are serving in the Panhandle regionmany who are ministering in small and rural communitiesare excited to see an evangelism conference with discussions and speakers geared to their unique setting, Burton said. During the two events, panel discussions and seminars will be led by pastors of Florida Baptist churches that are effectively reaching their communities for Christ. The meeting will also feature Phillip Herrington, pastor of First Baptist Church in Live Oak; Shelly Chandler, pastor of the host church; Jackie Watts, pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Madison; and Ken Harrison, pastor of Northside Baptist Church in Ponce de Leon. Other seminar leaders include Ron Lentine, pastor of Myrtle Grove Baptist Church in Pensacola; Shawn Johnson, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dowling Park; and Rich Kincl, pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Tallahassee. Throughout the meeting, ministry exhibits designed to help churches increase their evangelistic activities will be on display including the Strength Team, illusionist Brock Gill and CrossHeir Out tters. Morning sessions will convene at 9:15 a.m. on all four days; afternoon sessions from 1:20-4:50 p.m.; and evening sessions begin at 6:45 p.m. No pre-registration is required to attend any of the meetings, which are provided free of charge as a Cooperative Program ministry. and WeSteam forFree! *NotAllitems canbesteamed.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports the 2004 Blue Bird school bus was traveling west on U.S. 90 near County Road 10A in Walton County shortly before 7 a.m. The driver, Lisa Renea Lee of Chipley, was driving below the post speed limit because of heavy fog in the area, according to FHP reports. A 1994 Ford Ranger, driven by Lee Roy Baxley of Westville, had became disabled while traveling east in the same area, and its occupants were attempting to push the vehicle into the westbound land and toward the northern shoulder of the highway by hand. The pedestrians heard the bus approaching, separated from the truck and attempted to ag the bus down. Lee didnt have enough time to react and swerved into the eastbound lane in an attempt to avoid the crash. The buss right side swiped the trucks right side, reportedly causing only minor injuries.

LocalA6 | Washington County News Wednesday, March 19, 2014TALLAHASSEE (AP) A measure aimed at strengthening Floridas public records laws moved easily through a Senate committee Thursday, coincidentally the same day former Gov. Reubin Askew died. He had led the campaign to pass Floridas 1976 Sunshine Amendment, which required nancial disclosure by all public ofcials, candidates and employees. The bill, sponsored by state Sen. Jeremy Ring, pleases open government advocates as an ambitious effort that would limit fees for record searches, dene records that are condential or exempt in keeping with existing court decisions and require private contractors for government agencies to inform that agency before it denies a public records request. The bill (SB 1648) also requires public agencies to train all employees on the states open records laws. It is interesting that we did the bill the day (Askew) passed away, as he was a great pioneer of open government, said Ring, a Broward County Democrat. The last time weve had bills to really improve the states public records law was in the 90s, said Barbara Petersen, president of the First Amendment Foundation, a media-funded group that monitors the governments compliance with Sunshine laws. She provided input on the legislation. Its getting better, I have to say. Overall, the Florida Legislature is considering more bills dealing with public records this year than in the past few years, Petersen said. Which surprises me, because we usually see fewer in an election year and normally this time of year have about half as many, said Petersen, whose foundation is tracking 125 bills. The foundation has singled out seven as being particularly bad, while noting ve are moves in the right direction, including Rings bill, which has a House companion (HB 1151). Most of the bills moving through the Legislature seek exemptions to the Sunshine law rather than to enhance it, adding to the almost 1,000 exemptions already in place. The bills seek to exempt: Email addresses held by a tax collector for the purpose of sending tax notices to individuals (HB 421 and SB 538). Personal identifying information in auto accident reports (HB 865 and SB 1046). Unsolicited proposals received by a university board of trustees, stipulating that the proposals will be exempt from public disclosure until the board receives and ranks the proposals (HB 543). The identication of current or former employees of the state Department of Health whose duties include the investigation of complaints against health care practitioners or the inspection of facilities licensed through the department (SB 390). Records collected that deal with drug testing of public ofcials (HB 1437). Information identifying applicants for the position of president or dean of a public university or college, and meetings held for the purpose of vetting those applicants (HB 135 and SB 728).Bills put more teeth in open records laws New test to replace FCAT next yearTALLAHASSEE (AP) Florida is ready to part ways with the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, a mainstay in the states schools for more than a decade.

Special to The NewsTALLAHASSEE During the meeting of the Florida Cabinet on March 6, Gov. Rick Scott recognized Sgt. Stephen Gillman and Officers Sophia White, Jamie Fischer and Timothy Smith of Holmes Correctional Institution with the Medal of Heroism for their courageous actions. On Aug. 18, 2013, an inmate abruptly attacked Gillman during the noon meal at HCI. White, Fischer and Smith immediately responded to the assault as they observed Gillman slashed in the head and back with a pick-style weapon by the inmate. The officers subdued the inmate and placed him in restraints. The attack was a gang hit that had been put out on Gillman because he identified a staff member for supplying tobacco and other contraband items to the inmates at the facility, resulting in the arrest of the employee. It is an honor for me to present the Medal of Heroism to these brave officers, Scott said. Their quick response helped prevent other individuals from getting harmed. Not only did they demonstrate their dedication to service and their commitment to public safety, but also kept their fellow correctional officers and inmates safe. The swift action taken by Sgt. Gillman and Officers White, Fischer and Smith is a testament to their devotion and shows they acted to come to the aid of one of their own and not give a second thought to their own personal safety, Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews. Their selfless actions saved the life of their colleague and the lives of inmates, Crews said. I applaud the response of these officers and appreciate the governor for recognizing them with this most-deserved medal. The Medal of Heroism is given to any law enforcement or correctional officer, firefighter, emergency medical technician or paramedic who has distinguished himself or herself by risking his or her life deliberately above and beyond the call of duty and must have engaged in hazardous or perilous activities to preserve lives with the knowledge that such activities might result in great personal harm.

www.chipleypaper.com ASection Page 7 Wednesday, March 19, 2014 SPORTs SSophomore sensation Alex Hamilton is averaging a team-best 14.5 points per game along with three assists and 1.5 steals per game for Louisiana Tech.By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com EL PASO, Texas Alex Hamiltons game clearly has successfully transitioned to Louisiana Tech. Next on the agenda is helping the Bulldogs reach the NCAA tournament. Hamilton, a 20-year-old sophomore, is Louisiana Techs leading scorer this season as the Bulldogs gear up for a showdown with either UAB or Charlotte tonight in the Conference USA mens basketball tournament quarterfinals. UAB and Charlotte played late Wednesday night; the result was unavailable before press time. Hamilton, 6-foot-4, 180 pounds, was named a thirdteam all-conference selection after averaging a teambest 14.5 points per game along with three assists and 1.5 steals per game. The aggressive, drive-thelane mentality he possessed when he led Chipley to a Class 1A state championship two years ago is still very much embedded in his style of play at Louisiana Tech (25-6). Thats still the strongest part of my game, Hamilton said. Im steadily working on my jump shot, and its definitely improving. The more experience I get, the easier the game gets for me. I still go to the rim a lot and finish with contact. Thats what I do. Hamilton started only three games for the Bulldogs as a freshman, but two of those were starts in the NIT at seasons end. That served as a precursor to an expanded role this season in which he has started all 31 games and has played the second-most minutes on the team. Hamilton seemed to assert himself more on the offensive end as the season progressed, particularly during a six-game stretch in January in which he attempted 10 or more shots from the field in each of those games. The Bulldogs boast four players with a scoring average in double figures, however, so he hasnt had to put his teams success solely on his shoulders. I have a big role, but we have a lot of players and it can be any players night on any night, Hamilton said. I can have five points, and somebody else has 25. Or I can go for 30, and somebody else goes for five. In high school I was starting, and I was used to starting. Coming off the bench early was a big adjustment for me because I was used to a starting role. When I came in, I took what (opposing defenses) gave me. If you need me to put up shots, I will. If my teammates are open, I will find the open man. If you give me a shot, Ill take it and Ill make it. Im playing with confidence. The Bulldogs have won eight of their last nine games and finished the regular season tied with three other teams atop the Conference USA standings with a 13-3 league mark. LaTech ranks just 68th in the country in RPI, a metric heavily relied upon by the selection committee that determines the 64 teams filling the NCAA tournament field each year. Hamilton said the Bulldogs still have some room to improve but are playing close to their best basketball of the season. He said rebounding and defense will determine their fate in the conference tournament. He stopped short of saying LaTech deserves an at-large bid in the NCAA tournament if the Bulldogs fail to win the league tourney. They said theres been talk about it, but we shouldnt have to depend on that, Hamilton said. We should take care of our business. Special to the NewsOver the past two weeks, the Vernon boys weightlifting team has competed in two big meets. Last week, they traveled to Sneads for an 8 team meet. The Yellow Jackets came on top, scoring 69 points. Altha placed second in the meet with 33. Individual winners for the Jackets were Khalil Stephens in the 154 class, Traice Adams in the 183 class, JT Padgett in the 199 class, Darrion Peterson in the 219 class, and Marlon Stephens in the 238 class. Other lifters who contributed to the win by scoring points were Ryan Malloy took second in the 139 class, Brandon Malloy was second in the 169 class and Daniel Riveras was third, Austin Brown scored a second place in the 183 class, Jonshae Works finished fourth in the 199 class, Darrius Peterson was second in the 219 class, and Stoney Long placed second in the 238 class. This was a great showing for the Jacket lifters as will help guide them into their first state qualifier on March 24th at VHS. This week, the Jackets made a long road trip to Fort White for a 20 team invitational that included last years State Runnerup in 1A as well as some very good 2A teams. The Jackets did not have their best day but finished 5th overall. Some key lifters saw a solid day.

Daniel Riveras finished second in a strong 169 class and posted his best total of the year. Darrion Peterson had his best day and finished fifth in the 219 class and Darrius Peterson also had his best day and finished sixth.

The team will head to Virginia June 21-24 to compete against other clubs from across the nation.By Lisa MathewsBHS teacher Special to Extra Far too soon, the world will be left to rely on only memoirs and videos to learn the lessons of the Holocaust. The chances of personally hearing the poignant, powerful and tragic stories of Holocaust survivors are drastically dwindling. As many educators say, To meet Holocaust survivors in person is to touch history. No two stories are exactly alike, but the sense of the story the impact of terror, deprivation and personal loss is what truly makes every event such as this in nitely memorable. It is dif cult to describe the feeling of awe a person experiences when hearing history from a person who lived it. On Nov. 13, 2013, my ninth grade Holocaust class had the opportunity to touch history as they witnessed a true Holocaust survivor Dr. Alan Hall, share his story and he managed to overcome this horri c event. This experience will be one that my students will remember forever and will give the opportunity to help others and bear witness so that this period of history is never forgotten and the legacy of the survivors remains alive. Halie Bodie was one of several students who was able to witness the account of events as shared by Dr. Alan Hall. This class has taught me that everyone is equal. No one should be judged on their appearance or their race. Ive scratched out racial diversity and inserted family and equal. We in the United States should be all the more thankful for the freedom and religious tolerance we enjoy. And we should always remember the lessons learned from the Holocaust, in hope that we stay vigilant against such inhumanity now and in the future. This class has had the most impact on my life than anything that I can imagine. Im truly blessed to have this experience. Madison Sketo also remarked, Sitting and listening to Alan Hall was one of the most inspirational and touching experiences of my entire life. Throughout this year I have listened and learned about the unfortunate events of the Holocaust, but to actually experience the history from Mr. Halls point of view gave me a sense of humility. I am blessed to have a Holocaust class and be able to learn about the events in a deep and informative way, and listening to Alan Hall was an experience that I will never forget. I feel like my entitlement has gone away and my understanding of life is deeper. BHS students re ect on HolocaustSPECIAL TO EXTRAStudents from Bethlehem High School say the visit with Holocaust survivor Dr. Alan Hall made a lasting impression.

If you watch, TV infomercials, you will nd most of them have to do with some aspect of health. Everyone boasts of some healing through chemistry or therapy or psychology or even some exercise gizmo. Everybody seems to have the magic something, that will bring the much coveted health to any person who applies their program. All kinds of solutions are available to make you live longer, live happier and live to the fullest extent of human experience. Enter the televangelist. Into this arena comes the proverbial Elmer Gantrys of our generation not to be outdone. All kinds of gimmicks are employed to market their so-called healing powers. Everything from Miracle Springwater, to blood red Prayer Cloths. The problem is so many take this seriously enough to support it with millions of dollars which I believe to be a neat trick of the enemy to diverge money from legitimate areas of evangelism. If this matter were not so dangerous it would be right down humorous. But the on-air heretics are doing serious damage to the true cause of Christ and his church in this generation. If these boasters have the power they boast of, why is it that it only happens when camera lights are on? Why not go down to the pediatric ward and lay hands on all those innocent young infants suffering from some disease? Why not put the so-called miraculous power to work for good without any consideration of personal compensation or recognition? Marketing the gospel has become one of the great heresies of our generation and is responsible, to a great degree, for the detrimental state of the evangelical church in America. It has become highly impossible to run a local church without employing the latest gimmicks and techno-wonders. A plague of contemporary Christianity today are those who use aspects of the gospel for selfpromotion. The call goes out, Expect your miracle today, and Come see a miracle, all in an effort to draw the curious to their meetings under the guise of proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. Today, the gospel is Big Business and plenty are willing to exploit this aspect to further their personal advantage. In a sermon once, Dr. A. W. Tozer commented, I noticed there are thousands of people using missions and healing and prophecy and the deeper life and all the rest for no other purpose than secretly promoting their own private interest. He said that back in the early 1960s, what would he say today? In this context, healing has become big business. From the old canvas tent campaigns of another generation to TV and Internet today, healing is a marketable commodity. Following the death of a world famous Faith healer, the person said he thought Dr. Simpson would have been a close associate of his. This made me question whether the person knew as much about Simpson as he thought. Throughout his long ministry, Simpson never contemplated using any element of the gospel to bring him recognition or remuneration. His sole business was reaching the lost world for Jesus Christ. A visitor in the Simpson home once discovered the secret to Simpsons great ministry. He happened to get up early in the morning and heard a noise in Simpsons study. The door was ajar so peeking in he discovered Simpson draped over a globe of the world sobbing as though his heart would break for the lost world. Simpson had a passion that could never be satiated by any personal exploitation of the gospel. His ministry was balanced theologically. That is where the Fourfold Gospel message comes in. Jesus Christ our: Savior, Sancti er, Healer and Coming King embraces the gospel in a very balanced fashion. At the Gospel Tabernacle in New York City where Dr. Simpson was the founding pastor, he had special Friday healing services. Many people would come and be anointed and prayed for healing. Simpson did something rather strange, at least from our point of view today. He often would give the healing message and then when it came time for people to come to be anointed and prayed for he retired to another part of the building and gave himself to intercessory prayer. He did not want the people who had come for prayer to think that healing had anything whatsoever to do with him. He refused to be a healing celebrity. A.B. Simpson and the Business of healing DR.

HHeartMarguerite Lois Swindle Holland, a native of Bonifay, and a 64 year resident of Weaverville, Calif., died Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014 as a result of a stroke suffered at her home. Marguerite was the fourth child of Jesse C. and Eva Lois Kelly Swindle. Her father owned and operated the Holmes County Hardware Store in Bonifay as well as the ice house and Hoovers Mill. Her older siblings were Kelly F. Swindle, Mary Sue Parker and Jesse C. Swindle, Jr., all former residents of Bonifay. When Marguerite was only eight years old, their mother died four days after the birth of their baby sister Martha Nell. So, having lost her own mothers at such a young age Marguerite was passionate about providing love and support to her own children and many others. She was a Brownie Scout and Girl Scout Troop leader, a den mother for Cub Scouts, and a volunteer in kindergarten classrooms at Weaverville Elementary. He childrens friends were always welcome in her home for a single meal or a lengthy stay, including AFS exchange students. Over the years Marguerite was an active member of both the Church of Nazarene and the Trinity Congregational Church. She sang in the choir, taught Sunday school classes and gave rides everywhere to friends. When relatives or friends visited, she delighted in giving them a rst class tour of the beautiful California countryside as well as visits all around the San Francisco area. Her wide circle of friends was precious to her, including those she knew through her church and community afliations, those in the Sewing Club to which she belonged for over 60 ears, and those with whom she played countless games of bridge. Desperately wanting to attend college but unable to because of family circumstances and the onset of World War II, Marguerite became an avid life-long learner. She was a voracious reader, loved to travel, and took classes in horticulture and computers well into her 80s. In addition, among her many self-taught talents were cooking and sewing. Her fried chicken and key lime pie were legend around the Weaverville area and her lush yards and gardens were something to behold. Many of her favorite plants were given to her by friends as they shared with each other through the years. In declining health since a stroke our years ago, Marguerite was adamant that she wanted to live out her days in the serene peace of her wooded hillside home. It was the place she and her husband Jim had built on Oregon Street in 1956. There, they had raised their family. She was able to do this because her loving daughter, Emily, moved from her home in Davis, Calif., to live with her and care for her. Together, Emily and her husband Steve made sure that her desire for independence was honored while also giving her the daily help and companionship she needed. The family is very thankful to the staff at Trinity County Hospital and Carole Main for the exceptional care and support given to Marguerite. It also meant so much to everyone that her any church friends regularly visited and called. She was preceded in death by her husband, James A. Holland and son, James Timothy Holland. She is survived by her daughter, Barbara Holland Chapman and her husband, John of Chapel Hill, N.C, Emily Holland Ohrwall and her husband, Steve of Davis and Weaverville, Calif.; son, Jesse A. Holland of Palo Cedro, Calif.; granddaughters, Andrea Holland of San Francisco, Calif., and Erica Holland of Los Angeles, Calif.; sister, Martha Braxton of Bonifay and many nieces, nephews, and extended family in the Bonifay area. A celebration of Marguerites life was held at the Trinity Congregational Church on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 11 a.m. Following the service, her family greeted friends in the parish hall where everyone in the local community was invited.

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 B6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County NewsBy Frank Sargeantfranksargeant@charter.net It might not feel like cobia season, with night temps still in the 40s, but the calendar and the sunrise times both say it is. Each year, cobia begin prowling Panhandle beaches sometime soon after March 1, and the parade continues through late April. Beach water temperature has been wavering around 68, and that denitely is in the zone for cobiathe sh start showing at around 65 most years, and the prime run continues until around the time it passes 72. The brown bombers can be spotted anywhere from 30 yards off the beach to several miles out. Just beyond the green reef, the secondary bar along much of the Panhandle shoreline is always a good place to start searching. They often travel in pods of two to six sh, and cruise along just a foot or two below the surface, making it easy to spot them for those who know what to look for. In fact, they look much like small sharks to an inexpert eye, swimming with the same slow, steady tail beat. Beach cobia typically weigh anywhere from 20 to 60 pounds, but far larger ones have been caught in waters of the northern Gulf, including several over 100 pounds taken from the Alabama shoreline, just beyond Floridas Panhandle the same sh that pass through Sunshine State waters wind up off Dauphin Island a few days later. The Florida record, caught near Destin, weighed 130 pounds, 1 ounce. The all-tackle IGFA record is 135 pounds, 9 ounces, for a sh taken off Australia. Cobia is one of the few species that is exactly the same throughout all the worlds temperate oceans, biologists say. Although the Panhandle cobia shery primarily targets sh cruising off the beaches, the species can be caught throughout the warmer months and into November most years around area wrecks, reefs, buoys, piers and other structures anywhere from depths of 10 feet on out to several hundred feet. Cobia are also noted for following large sea creatures closely manta rays and whale sharks sometimes attract large schools, so anytime anglers spot one of these denizens its worth checking to see if there are cobia hanging under them. Even temporary structures may attract cobiathey sometimes stack up under shrimp boats at anchor, or beneath tankers moored offshore, waiting to come in and unload. Cobia also sometimes join kingsh and mackerel in following baitsh schools. Theyre typically found on the outer edges of bait balls, while the mackerel clan will be inside slicing and dicing. Cobia look much like oversized remoras, except that they lack the suction cup on the head. Biologists say they are not closely related, but everything from color to skin texture is similar, plus they share the tendency to hang with larger sea creatures. However, remoras never attain larger sizes. Cobia tacticsClassic cobia shing is sight shing, and theres no where its practiced so frequently as in Panhandle waters from Apalachicola westward all the way to the barrier islands of Louisiana. The sh here show themselves, making it relatively easy to get in front of them and put a bait on their nose. Most area charterboat skippers who regularly chase cobia have their boats rigged with ying bridges or tuna towers, which gives them a much better view down into the water to spot the sh. Add a pair of polarized glasses and a few decades of experience and its no problem at all for the average skipper to locate sh frequently. For those who like to chase the sh out of their own boats, its smart to set up so that youre traveling with the sun at your back. Its easier to see the sh from about 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. when the sun is high, though sh seen at mid-day have often already had several baits ung at them and may be cautious. If you can spot a sh shortly after sunrise and be the rst to put a bait or lure on it, that sh will often become cobia llets. Those which have been hammered on by a half-dozen boats, on the other hand, totally might ignore your offerings. Cobia eat about anything which will t down their gullets, but they do have some favorite foods. Eels are near the top, and many Destin area skippers rely on these slippery critters to lure cobia in season. Eels are hard to handle and hard to put on the hook, and they dont cast all that well, but if you can get a lively one in front of a cobia, you rarely will get a turn-down. A tip: put the eels on dry newspaper for a moment to remove some of the slime and you will nd them much easier to get on the hook. Almost as good, and much easier to handle and cast, are large soft plastic eel imitations those with swimming tails and multiple hooks are often best. Cobia are also known as crab-eaters, and that name gives you a clue as to another favorite food; small crabs, about 3 inches across, make excellent baits. Hook them through the outer points of the shell on a 3/0 extra strong short-shank live bait hook. Soft crab imitations like the avored models from GULP! also do the job at times. All sorts of baitsh catch cobia; pinsh are easy to get, durable and easy to cast. Blue runners are another favorite very durable and active. Large scaled sardines also are excellent, though theyre pretty much a do-it-yourself bait since they dont live well in bait tanks. Ditto for threadns, which have a very short lifespan but are good baits just after being sabikied aboard. Baits about 4 to 5 inches long are best for cobia 20 pounds and up. Cobia can also readily be caught on all sorts of articial lures, particularly when they rst show up and have not been hammered on; a ounce jig with a 5 to 7 inch shad tail often does the job, as do shad-imitating swimbaits like the 1-ounce Tsunami Swimshad. Big topwaters like the Super Spook also can fool them at times.Presentation is everythingPresentation is everything in successful cobia shing. First trick is to get the boat in the right position. As in shing tarpon, you can rarely catch sh by motoring up on them from behind. The trick is to spot the sh, then motor in a wide arc around them, then shut down and let the sh swim into range. Quiet engines are a denite advantage inboards and fourstroke outboards generally can get closer than older two-stroke rigs. However, those equipped with powerful electric trolling motors on center-console rigs can often slip in very close without spooking the sh. Get yourself into range and put a long cast about 10 feet ahead of them. If youre shing live bait, just let it sit and the sh often will do the rest. If youre throwing articials, pull the lure quartering away from them and youre likely to get bit. Remember, real bait never attacks the sh cobia, like all species, take articials best when they appear to be trying to escape. Best tackle for chasing cobia these days is a big offshore spinning rig these allow throwing lighter baits farther than anyone can manage with even the most skilled use of revolving spook rigs.An 8-foot, medium-heavy rod with two-hand grip and the spool loaded with 30 to 50 pound braided line will do the job. Add several feet of 40 to 60 pound uorocarbon leader between line and hook, tying it in with a double uni-knot.The ght starts lateCobia are very strong sh, but at times they seem almost docile on the hook. If you stick them at a distance, then crank them in without really leaning on them you can do this by easing the boat close as you reel you can often have them all the way to the boat before they know the jig is up, so to speak. The other advantage of this stealth ght is that you often will get a second or third cobia following the hooked sh drop a live bait next to them and you will have two cobia rather than one. The ght actually starts when you stick the sh with the gaff and haul it into the boat. No species goes more berserk than the cobia when it hits the deck the big ones are powerful and actually dangerous they can knock a man down, sprain ankles and send tackle sailing overboard. The best tactic, if you have a giant ice chest or sh box, is to jerk them directly into the box, slam down the lid and sit on it until the ruckus subsides. This is assuming you want to keep your sh, of course. They are one of the tastiest of nearshore sh, with rm white llets that are good broiled, blackened or baked I release most species but its hard to let a cobia go. The limit is one cobia per person per day, or six per boat, whichever is less. Minimum length is 33 inches to the fork of the tail. There are numerous cobia tournaments in the area in March and April check out these two for a start: www.destin cobiatournament.com and www.cobiaworld championships.com. SPECIAL TO tiTI Mes ES -a A DVe E Rtise TISE RThe annual cobia run into Panhandle waters typically gets underway when water temperatures along the beach exceed 65 degrees, and its already at 68. Cobia just around the cornerTower boats make spotting cobia much easier as they cruise at the surface just outside the green reef a bar close to the beach. Outdoors
