Kasey Combs, 20, was traveling southbound on Kirkland Road in Chipley at 4:16 p.m. Saturday, April 5, on a Huffy bicycle when the accident occurred. According to a Florida Wednesday, APRIL 9 2014Volume 90, Number 103Expanded gambling effort endsStaff and wire reportsTALLAHASSEE A key lawmaker has pulled the plug on a legislative plan to broaden gambling in Florida during this years session, but supporters promise to revive the effort next year. The surprise move was announced in the middle of a Senate budget discussion by Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, who had led the discussion to implement more gambling in the state, opening it up to outside interests, including Las Vegas-style casinos in South Florida, as well as to establish a gaming commission to oversee the sector in the state. The move could be a setback for Ebro Greyhound Parks plan to expand gambling at its venue, but it came as no surprise to Stockton Hess, president and general manager of the track in Washington County, where voters approved slot machines in a 2012 referendum. Slot machines were part of Ebros plan. Gov. Rick Scott earlier made it clear negotiations with the Seminole tribe would continue beyond the end of the legislative session, Hess said. That was pretty much a foregone conclusion, he said. Hess and some others had hoped the bill would remove the requirement that tracks run a certain number of races if they offer card rooms. Dog tracks and animal advocates alike have pushed for decoupling removing ties Sen. Richter steps back amid talks with Seminole tribe SEN. GARRETT RICHTER STOCKTON HESSBy CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Washington and Holmes county residents soon will be paying less for vehicle registration and title fees with last weeks passing of a bill that rolls the fees back to their pre-2009 rates. The measure is expected to mean an annual savings of between $18 and $25 for vehicle owners here. The Legislature raised the fees in 2009, along with others associated with drivers licenses, drivers records and ID cards. The move was meant to generate revenue at a time when the states nances were tight. Despite backing the fees in 2009, Republican legislative leaders supported the rollback, which is effective Sept. 1. From day one of the 2014 legislative session, Gov. (Rick) Scott and the Florida Legislature committed to making a reduction in vehicle fees the centerpiece of meaningful tax relief for Floridas families, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. I am pleased to see (the) bill become the centerpiece of the governors $500 million Its Your Money tax cut and honored to witness this recurring reduction in vehicle registration fees become law here today. Washington County Tax Collector Ken Naker reminds residents who still need to renew before September that they should renew for only one year in order to receive the savings for the next time their renewal is due. In fact, Naker is temporarily removing the two-year renewal option on notice statements to help ensure motorists here dont lose out. Beginning Sept. 1, 2014, most people will see an average savings of about $18 to $25 depending on vehicle type on their tag registrations and renewals, Naker said. While this is good news for some, its not for the thousands of motor vehicle owners statewide who have already renewed for two years. The legislation prohibits any refunds for the higher fees paid prior to the Sept. 1 effective date, so I will be temporarily Tag fee rollback effective Sept. 1 Christian camp eyed near VernonBy CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Planning Commission approval a conceptual plan to allow development of a church camp and retreat to begin its initial phase at the site of The Groves RV Park, just east of Vernon, when they met in regular session last week. Austin Norwood of Pine Beach Christian Camps Inc. presented the plan, saying its expected to bring new jobs and stimulate the economy. If we go on a timeline from today, the expected completion date will be the second quarter of 2016, Norwood said. We would need to hire staff, and we would look to local residents to ll those positions. There are about 10 different job titles the camp would ll, but the exact number of job I will be temporarily removing the two-year renewal option offered on the tag renewal notices mailed out each month. This option will still be available if desired, but again, there will be no bene t from the registration fee reduction.Ken Naker, Washington County tax collector There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, April 9, 2014Special to The News CHIPLEY Join Ring14 USA Outreach Inc.s WalkA-Thon to Walk Circles Around Ring 14. The event is set to take place May 10 at Roulhac Middle School and is sponsored by the RMS Student Council. The inaugural Ring Walk Charity Walk-A-Thon will see walkers of all ages circle the bus loop while they enjoy preand post-event refreshments and entertainment at the school, 1535 Brickyard Road. All proceeds from the walk will help make an immediate difference in the lives of the children with Ring 14 and their families. Your gift will go toward research, raising awareness and family support of this rare disorder. Ring 14 is a rare genetic disorder caused by a mutation in the 14th chromosome. It is also known as an orphan disease because of the low number of children affected by it. Currently in the United States, there are 26 known children who suffer from Ring 14. Symptoms of Ring 14 vary from person to person, but they are usually very signicant. Kim, a 12-year-old student at RMS, is one of those children. Although she struggles daily with many of the symptoms of Ring 14, such as medically refractory epilepsy, hypotonia, microcephaly, symptomatic autism, sensory processing delays, neurogenic bladder, ADHD, developmental delays, gastroparesis, migraines, social issues, calcium defencies and more, she wakes up smiling every day. It is through the support of the staff and students of RMS and our community that we can make a difference in her life and the lives of the other children and families who deal with these struggles daily. The event starts at 8:30 a.m. with check-in at 8 a.m. All walkers will receive free gift bags and have the chance to win prizes all while helping some of the worlds most medically rare and fragile children. The loop will take walkers about 5 miles and 20 laps around the bus circle. Walkers, walking teams, those with strollers and wheelchair participants are all welcome. Drink stations will be provided along the route. To sign up or become a sponsor, contact Connie Kowitz at 703-9264, Greta Draayom at greta. draayom@wcsdschools. com or register at www.ring14usa.org. Ring14USA Outreach is a nonprot 501(c)(3) organization founded by a group of parents whose children have Ring 14. The organization was inspired by a sister group in Italy. This Italian organization proved that it is possible for a few people to raise signicant money to fund critical research, provide vital education and change lives. We wish to do the same. It is our goal to partner with the international organization to initiate and fund global collaborations for research while still being able to provide local support to North America.

Special to The NewsThe Jackson Hospital Foundation will host its annual fundraising gala, A Touch of Tuscany, at 6:30 p.m. May 9 at the National Guard Armory on U.S. 90 West in Marianna. The Foundation is planning a night of fun and philanthropy in support of Jackson Hospitals mission of providing exceptional care to every patient every day. This years event is themed A Touch of Tuscany and will deliver an evening lled with dining, dancing and a silent auction. The silent auction will offer guests the chance to bid on a variety of prizes from Jackson County and surrounding communities. The annual gala and all events held by the Jackson Hospital Foundation support the growth and development of Jackson Hospital. This years gala proceeds will benet the renovation of Jackson Hospitals Surgery Department.

Tickets to this event and table sponsorships are available.

Richter also cited the ongoing negotiations between the governor and the Seminole Indian tribe, which has seven gambling establishments in the state that include a contract between the state and the tribe. One of the central elements of the deal is a provision that guarantees a degree of gambling exclusivity for the tribe. Recently, it has become very apparent to all of us who are tracking this issue that unless the governor negotiates a new compact with the Seminole tribe, there wont be any comprehensive reform legislation this year, Richter said. Sound policy must take into account the compacts substantial revenue sharing and exclusivity provisions. The deal between the state and the tribe, signed four years ago, leans heavily on giving the Seminoles exclusivity in several games. The contract overall ends in 2030, but a provision on some games ends next year, which is the element that the governor is in talks with the tribe about. Violating that exclusivity would put the state at the risk of losing substantial money. Richter said he was told the negotiations are going well, and I think we can reasonably expect an agreement soon that will signicantly alter revenue sharing and revenue sharing provisions. But he added, If we put the gaming reform cart in front of the Seminole compact horse, we run the risk of getting policies at cross purposes. At the start of the session, the House and Senate each presented a bill of more than 400 pages aimed at creating a new structure for gambling in the state. Both measures included provisions to give voters a say on the matter. Expanded gambling is opposed by groups including the Seminole tribe and the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Both Las Vegas Sands Corp. and Malaysian-based Genting Group have courted lawmakers for years in hopes of landing choice spots for large casinos in South Florida. This is an issue that is going to take a lot more work, said Sen. Maria Lorts Sachs, D-Delray Beach. There are issues that we cannot resolve. Were at step one. Now its up to the executive branch and the people of Florida to decide. removing the two-year re newal option offered on the tag renewal notices mailed out each month. This option will still be available if desired, but again, there will be no benet from the registration fee reduction. Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell agrees and added that he and other tax collectors statewide are pleased at the bills passage. Im extremely happy the Legislature was able to get this passed and that the citizens are going to get a reduction in the fees theyre having to pay, Bell said. When this rst took place in 2009, our Association of Tax Collectors was very concerned and expressed disapproval at increasing the fees so dramatically. Bell also said he hopes this reduction might serve as a gateway for others. There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag, he said. That fee is around $225, and thats a big fee. It can be tough to pay that. For more information on how the bill affects their vehicle registration, Washington County residents may call Naker at 638-6275, and Holmes County residents can reach Bell at 547-1115. GAMBLINgG from page A1 CAMP from page A1 positions it would offer is not yet known. According to the nonprot groups business plan, more than 1,000 youth would attend the nondenominational Christian camp each summer, with the facility offered to other groups as a retreat site in the offseason. This is also an ecotourism opportunity, Norwood said. It would put guests in the local hotels and stimulate the local economy as they shop and eat locally. In addition to the camp, we would host educational eld trips for classes studying nature and conservation topics. Planning Commission members expressed concerns over the sites location within a 100-year ood plain; however, County Engineer Cliff Knauer said he would work with the group during the conceptual stages to ensure county requirements are met. cCYcCLIST from page A1 Highway Patrol report, Combs failed to stop at a s top sign and traveled into the path of a 2007 Ford F-150, which was traveling westbound on County Road 273. The FHP reports the trucks driver, 79-year old Walter Hayes of Bonifay, was unable to stop and struck Combs bicycle. Combs was ejected off the bicycle and into the ditch on the north side of County 273. No injuries are reported for Hayes, but Combs was transported to Bay Medical Center and is listed in critical condition.

OPINION www.chipleypaper.com APage 4Section Our VIEWWednesday, April 9, 2014 The Eleventh Anniversary of Perrys Prattle falls on a printing day, so please get out the bells and whistles and send a roaring Happy Anniversary Greetings to Perry Wells, who became Perrys Prattle on April 9, 2003. The idea of the long running and, what I hope to be still popular news paper column, was begun after a trip to a session of the Florida Legislature by your writer and his radio sidekick at the time, Roger Jones. Roger was affectionately known on radio WBGC by the stage name, Don Rogers. He and I dressed out in our nest attire and made the early morning drive to Tallahassee where we attended both a Florida Senate and a Florida House of Representative session where discussions in both were rather spirted that day. We made a walking tour of the Governors Mansion, then occupied by Governor Jeb Bush. We did get personal recognition from Governor Bush by dropping a few names, like my nephew, Kelvin Wells of DeFuniak Springs and niece, Kelly Beth Wells, who was already functioning as a Legislative Lobbyist. We saw her, quite by accident, as we enjoyed our lunch at a side walk setting where food was allowed to be eaten among throngs of patrons. The crowning touch of the trip was when Don and I attended the Museum located in the former Capitol Building. Here we splurged $3 each and did a recording simulating an actual broadcast of a former Florida Governor concerning a noteworthy news item at the time. My speaker was former Governor Leroy Collins and the issue of integration, especially of downtown Tallahassee eating facilities, was Governors headline that day. This video, was brought back to Chipley and shown in the news of ce. It was the springboard for the editors of the Washington News to suggest that Perry Wells become a writer for the mid week edition of the paper. The three or four weeks expected career as a writer has become an eleven years tenure. This writing milestone coincides with a second important facet of my life. April 20 will mark seventy years since Perry Wells and twenty-eight other young men and women graduated from Vernon High School. It was on Thursday, April 20, 1944 that this momentous occasion became a reality and one which we have honored with periodic reunions. Soon after our rst get together in 1964, we lost our rst class mate, Allee Whidden. Before we met again, classmate Mildred Farmer Ward succumbed to cancer. As the years have rolled by, class reunions have become more frequent, seemingly with always another death to report among our number. As president of the 1944 Class, it has continued my responsibility to help plan our events, and try to give reports on those who, for various reasons, could not attend. Deaths, illness and other misfortunes, became commonplace. Surviving class members recall that Martha Talbot, Johnnie B. Walsingham, Hilda Hightower Mullen and Oakley K. Hightower died at young ages. Others who died in later years include Ruby Brock Gale, Ellafair Walsingham Hess, Tommie Lee Dunn Kolmetz, Jacqueline Burdeshaw Donaldson, Ida Frances Kelly Hunter, Pauline Davis Perkins, Veston Newsom, Joe E. Pate, Catherine Dietz Humphrey, Ruby Ann Jones, Helen Owens Wray, Lorene Jenkins Sanders and Myrell Brock Simmons. Archie L. Cook and Shyne Marley died after our 2010 reunion. Hurdis A. Brock passed away in November after attending the reunion in April of 2012. Shortly after the 2013 event, held April 20, death came to Thomas Knight in May and to Estelle Hewett Scott in September. Frederick Kolmetzs wife, Nadine also died in October and Julius J. Fussell, husband of Frances Shores Fussell, died in June following the April reunion. In considering a 2014 reunion, we noted only ten surviving members, with most of them being physically unable to come. A decision was made to meet with the Vernon High School Alumni groups monthly meeting set for April 1, 2014 at Baileys Restaurant in Chipley. During the planning stage, the letter to classmate, Bessie Lee Milton Davenport, was returned marked Unable to Forward. Subsequent follow-up revealed Bessie Lee passed away on May 24, 2012. Her funeral was held May 29 in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, with arrangements entrusted to Settle Wilder Funeral Home. Classmates Bill McFatter, Louvern Chestnut Mizell, Emma Lou Chesser and Myrtle Morris Wolfe responded to their invitation letter, but reported being unable to attend. No response came from Trudell Brock Worthington, Carl Hightower, Frances Shores Fussell nor Carol McFatter Hudson. Frederick and I were the only classmates to attend. He was accompanied by sons, Charles and Robert, with Robert bringing wife, Debbie Kolmetz and two daughers, Amber and Christie. My wife, Hester was unable to attend. My cousin, Kathleen Wells Sauers, a 1946 VHS graduate, along with her daughter, Kathy Sauers Wansley, came in support of this last 1944 gathering. Steve Brock, son of Hurdis, came in tribute to his late father, and Betty Cook, widow of Jamie Cook, came in respect to Jamies brother, classmate Archie Cook. The VHS Alumni, including our few Classmates, brought the total in attendance to 34. The attitude of the gathering was upbeat and positive, although remembering those who are seriously sick and in rm. No sadness nor sentimentality was witnessed at the reality of this being the last formal reunion called the Class of Vernon High School of 1944. The sentiment seemed to be: Thank you Lord was looking after all of us throughout these years and permitting us to gather as a class and otherwise keep in touch with each other for these 70 years. See you all next week.Special to the NewsBessie Lee Milton Davenport shown from the Obituary Announcement. She was born in Vernon Oct. 5, 1925, and died May 24, 2012, in New Smyrna Beach.Marking 11 years of PrattlePERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Dear Editor, You may not be aware or think that it will affect you, but the Social Security of ce in Gadsden County closed April 1. Gadsden County senior citizens will no longer have a place to resolve problems or even ask questions about the bene ts they worked for all their lives. Many of these seniors have no access to computers or are not familiar with them, and the small monthly checks they receive do not include travel expenses to go to facilities 30 miles away. Since Social Security is a federal program, shouldnt our congressman in Washington be taking the lead on this? Congressman Steve Southerland, according to his newsletter, authored a letter March 18 to the U.S. Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn W. Colvin requesting a meeting regarding the closure of the Social Security Administration of ce in Quincy. A letter requesting a meeting! Was that some kind of April Fools joke, or was it an intentional delay? Even if Mrs. Colvin received the letter and responded, it sometimes takes two weeks for a letter to reach a congressman due to the intense scrutiny by law enforcement. The Social Security of ce in Washington is not hard to nd. It is two blocks past K Street. Congressman Southerland should know where that is. A short walk, an email, or a phone call could have facilitated a meeting as soon as he heard about the proposed closing. It is much harder to reverse something after it is done than to negotiate to stop it beforehand. Maybe thats one reason it closed; the letter may still be in the mail. I suppose the announcement of his requesting a meeting with the SS Administrator does look good in Congressman Southerlands newsletter since he faces a very strong opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, in the election this November. To my knowledge, neither the occurrence nor the outcome of the meeting with Mrs. Colvin has been made public. It seems unlikely that a meeting with Congressman Southerland would be very productive anyway, since he follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. It would certainly upset billionaire coal and gas magnates like the Koch brothers who have made tremendous donations to Southerlands campaign. It was just announced by the Tampa Bay Times that in the next few weeks you will see yet another TV ad praising Southerland for his opposition to Obamacare. The billionaire Koch brothers funded AFP pays for the $150,000 ad. They already spent $160,000 to air one in February, because Southerland is considered to be one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation. The ad says, He puts us rst, not special interests. Ironically, the ad itself is paid for by special interests. It is a good thing we have leaders on the local level like Gadsden County Commissioner Mrs. Brenda Holt, who is in the process of making social security services available at other locations and proposing other options on how the of ce can stay open and still save money. I am on Social Security, and I appreciate the good work Mrs. Holt is doing. If our present Washington politician lets this happen in Mrs. Holts county it can happen in other counties throughout our district.Jim ClementsPanama City HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

Letter to the EDITOR Theres a lot to learn if well slow downAn American History assignment in Faye Copes 10th grade class at Chipley High School once required that I interview someone who had lived through the World War II era. My father knew the perfect candidate. Grandmothers brother, GreatUncle Melton, not only fought, but was shot in the leg paratrooping over the Rhine River. He earned the Purple Heart. This held little signi cance, though, to a 15year-old kid who just wanted a good grade. Uncle Meltons lively blue eyes crinkled as he began to talk. I was soon squirming in my chair. Before he could nish droning on about a practical joking paratrooper buddy named Richard, I interrupted. Tell me what it was like to ght in combat?, I asked impatiently. Uncle Melton wanted to tell stories. All I wanted was to get through, go home and watch television. Arrogant in youth, my agenda was more important than what I could learn from him above and beyond what I had to have for a school assignment. Uncle Melton was a fading link to family history, but I was clueless. He passed away a few years later and, as time also passed, I grew to understand what an opportunity Id missed to learn more of my family legacy and the threads that bonded that eras brothers-inarms. Id give much now, to not only hear the rest of that yarn, but to also give my uncle the attention his years and life experiences deserved: to be heard and respected. Id like to hear now about Richard and what a great joke he played that still had my uncle laughing and telling the tale almost 50 years later. Why would we not want advice, stories and life experience from those who have already lived it? Who says we have to make all our own mistakes? Traditions, rituals, and good old stories were once passed from generation to generation. Doesnt seem to be happening much anymore. Our older generation holds great lessons for us: history, humor and homespun wisdom better than we can ever learn online. Its easy to grow impatient with the slow pace of our elders conversation. They hand-wrote letters and worked hours preparing just one meal. We dash off emails while waiting for the microwave to ping. Our older generation is ready to hand down to us the keys to the world keys that can unlock much of the mystery that bedevils our life. Listen to some of our elders. See the emotions they feel as they share memories. Its one of the best ways they can still contribute. Chances are, we all know a perfect candidate for this particular history lesson. If, that is, we can slow our pace long enough to listen. CAROL KENTEditor POSTMASTER: Send address change to: Washington County News P.O.

The bill, which partly was inspired by the case of a Jasonville woman sentenced to 20 years in prison after ring a shot near her estranged husband during an altercation, passed the chamber 32-7. The woman, Marissa Alexander, is out on bail awaiting a new trial. The bill, which earlier received backing from the Republican-controlled House, now goes to the desk of Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Alexander had tried to assert a stand your ground defense, but a judge rejected her claim. She was sentenced under a 1999 law called -20-life in which mandatory sentences are imposed for using a gun in certain cases. That law requires that anyone who shows a gun in the commission of certain felonies receive an automatic 10 years in prison. If a gun is red, its an automatic 20 years under that law. Shoot and wound someone and the mandatory sentence is 25 years to life. The warning shot bill, however, would allow for instances of threatened use of force without falling under the rule of -20-life. NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer and supporters said -20life wasnt intended to be used in self-defense cases. This is an important bill because it stops the abuse of 10-20-life and keeps prosecutors from using it against people who use lawful self-defense, Hammer said. She added that 10-20-life is not about self-defense. Self-defense is a constitutional right. 10-20-life was passed to stop prosecutors and judges from slapping gun-wielding criminals on the wrist and giving them reduced sentences or probation. Opponents of the proposed changes, however, argued that the so-called warning shot legislation would encourage more people to re weapons. Theres two magic words the publics going to hear warning shot, Sen. Chris Smith, R-Fort Lauderdale, said. I just dont think its responsible right now to encourage people to give warning shots in the air, in a crowd or wherever. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Greg Evers, a Republican from Pensacola. Evers opposes the phrase warning shot and emphasized that the bill is all about self-defense. This bill, if you read it, does not say anything about a warning shot, Evers said. What this bill does, it says, if you are threatened you can use equal or threatened use of force to protect yourself. This is about self-defense. This is about the right thing to do. Alexander attempted to use a stand your ground defense which allows the use of lethal force when threatened with death or great bodily harm. The defense failed because she did not actually shoot her husband. Opponents in the House and Senate have folded warning shot arguments into stand your ground debates. A commonly used example is the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who was accused and later acquitted in the death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. In another case, Michael Dunn recently was convicted of seconddegree attempted murder after shooting into a car full of black teenagers. The jury deadlocked on a murder charge against him in the death of one of those teens, Jordan Davis, in Jacksonville. Some have questioned what qualies as a warning shot and how many warning shots are allowed. Smith argued that the bill sent to Scott would give someone like Michael Dunn the opportunity to get away with lling a car with 11 bullets. An aide to Scott said he will give the bill close scrutiny. Gov. Scott supports the Second Amendment and Floridas self-defense laws, spokesman John Tupps said. He looks forward to reviewing this legislation in its entirety now that it has been approved by both the House and the Senate.Warning shot bill passes Florida Senate Panhandle Watermelon festival announces 14 lineupFrom staff reportsOn the heels of last years record breaking festival attendance, the Panhandle Watermelon Festival once again has lined up a group of performers to ensure this years festival will continue to offer thousands a jam packed two day music and family experience like no other locally. The 58th Panhandle Watermelon Festival proudly welcomes CMA award winner and Grammy-nominated country legend John Anderson as this years Friday night concert headliner. Fans also can look forward to country music star Jeff Bates, whose career has included seven chart singles on the Billboard country charts. Holding to tradition, Panhandle Watermelon Festival consistently spotlights legendary music acts coupled with family oriented activities, making this two day festival unlike any other offered in the area, Chairman Colby Peel said. Our goal remains to bring the highest quality entertainment to this community while ensuring this event is free to everyone who attends. Made possible in large part by presenting sponsors McDonalds, Community South Credit Union, Tobacco Free Florida, Northwest Florida Community Hospital and Wilbur Smith Law Firm, visitors can experience this years Friday night music acts while children participate in one of the many child-centered activities on the festival grounds including a bounce house and slide sponsored by longtime supporter, Community South Credit Union and the traditional watermelon contests hosted by Northwest Florida Community Hospital, all of which will be conveniently at Pals Park. Come hungry and feast on fare that goes hand in hand with Friday night watermelon, including hamburgers and hotdogs prepared by the Chipley Fire Department. Saturdays events commence early with the annual 5,000 meter Hot Trot Run at the Washington/ Holmes Technical Center. At the same time, spectators can head over to the Shrine Club for the traditional Pancake Breakfast. The family favorite Watermelon Parade is scheduled for 10 am. Participants will organize at the Chipley High School Football Stadium and continue east on U.S. Highway 90 through downtown to the delight of hundreds of eager faces. Festivities will begin immediately following the parade at the Ag Center with gospel group Crossroads kicking off another talented lineup of musicians. The time-honored introduction of queens and the watermelon contest and auction, hosted by Auctioneer David Corbin, round out the lunchtime activities. The Fine Arts Show, hosted by the Washington County Arts Council, will be on display in the east wing of the Ag Center. This show will feature artwork from local artists as well as noted artists from the Northwest Florida region. Back by popular demand, Grammy award-winning bluegrass group and crowd favorite Dailey and Vincent again will cap off Saturdays musical lineup. Numerous food and arts and crafts vendors will be scattered throughout the Ag Center grounds and visitors can drop by the Kiwanis table and pick up a complimentary slice of watermelon while supplies last. Bill would close medical clinic loopholeTALLAHASSEE (AP) There is one simple way for a Florida medical clinic to avoid being licensed and undergoing an annual inspection: Dont accept insurance. A bill moving through the Legislature would close that loophole for so-called cash-only clinics, which can escape government oversight because the statutory denition of a clinic is interpreted as an operation that takes thirdparty insurance. The bill (SB 746) sponsored by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, would require that all medical clinics be subject to licensure, renewal and inspection, whether they accept insurance or not. Many of the cash-only clinics are run by business people with no connection to the medical eld, but must hire a licensed doctor to oversee the operation and sign prescriptions. Because the clinics arent licensed, the state doesnt know how many exist. There is no regulation of clinics, it truly is the Wild West out there, said Kenneth Woliner, a Boca Raton physician who thinks the clinics should be regulated. He said nding clinics that run without oversight is simple: The places open, treat patients and then quickly move on. The doctors who are hired to run the clinics are often older doctors and they just need money and dont care, he said. Sobels bill is moving slowly, if at all. She looks at the disinterest in the statehouse as a problem of regionalism. Most of the unlicensed clinics are in her district and other parts of South Florida, so getting legislators from other parts of the state interested is difcult. This is often how the pill mills operate, Sobel said, referring to clinics and pharmacies that illicitly dispense prescription narcotics like painkillers. But Im not sure anyone up here knows that. They just dont have the problem to the extent we do. WASHINGTON (AP) With Mideast peace talks on the verge of collapse, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared Friday that its reality check time on whether an agreement can be reached anytime soon after decades of bitterness between Israeli and Palestinian leaders. The U.S. will re-evaluate its role as mediator, he said. It was Kerrys most pessimistic take yet on the peace effort after almost nine months of frustrating talks with little progress to show. Kerry made clear that his push for peace is not yet over, and he said both sides claim to want to continue negotiating. But he also said that continuing setbacks in the process culminating this week with tit-fortat moves by Israeli and Palestinian ofcials that have upended goodfaith bargaining could force the U.S. to shift focus to other crises where Washington might have more success. We have an enormous amount on the plate, Kerry told reporters during a diplomatic visit to Rabat, Morocco, the end of a marathon trip that saw him jumping back and forth between Israel, Ramallah and Europe. He noted that the U.S. also is dealing with challenges in Ukraine, Iran and Syria, and he said, There are limits to the amount of time and effort the United States can spend if the parties themselves are unwilling to take constructive steps in order to be able to move forward. The nine months of talks are scheduled to end April 29, and Kerry has been pressing to have them continue through much of the rest of the year. But were not going to sit here indenitely, he said. So its reality check time, and we intend to evaluate precisely what the next steps will be. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he would anticipate that a conversation with the president is in the near future. Kerry has spent major portions of his 14 months as secretary of state pursuing an Israeli-Palestinian agreement despite the seemingly long odds. A collapse of the talks could be a diplomatic embarrassment for him and the administration and a danger in the region as well. Failed efforts in the past have led to major bouts of violence. On Friday, Palestinians red rockets at Israel, which responded with warplanes attacking military targets in the Gaza Strip. Uzi Rabi, director of Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University, said its doubtful the two sides will broker a nal peace agreement, given years of bitterness and sharp differences over borders, claims to Jerusalem and recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. But he said the talks should continue if only to ward off a new Palestinian uprising against Israelis that would surely lead to a surge in violence.Kerrys patience wearing thin as Mideast peace talks falter

In the Bahamas, it is possible to go on a dive charter and swim with sharks. I often wondered why someone didnt offer that type of dive experience in local waters. I also wondered why shermen in the Bahamas didnt converge in the area the sharks were being chummed for divers to photograph. Im sure they would here. In the Bahamas, dive operators will gather sh guts and heads and freeze them in a big drum, then dump them into shallow water of 20 feet or so and get a bunch of sharks gathered, then let the divers in the boat jump overboard and watch the sharks devour the sh scraps. I saw a video one of our local divers took in the Bahamas during one of these shark feedings, and it was awesome. There were several varieties of sharks in the mix from reef sharks to small bulls. I didnt see anyone being attacked because these sharks had become accustomed to being fed. Thats not to say some shark that doesnt know the rules couldnt come along and bite someone. I read about a dive operation in Palm Beach that was busted for doing the very thing they were doing in the Bahamas. They were charged with illegally feeding sharks in state waters. The FWC calls it a public safety issue. I suppose it would be if one bit you, but how can they do it 90 miles to the east? The law reads that no diver shall engage in the practice of sh feeding. No person shall operate any vessel for hire for the purpose of carrying passengers to any site in the saltwaters of the state to engage in sh feeding or to allow such passengers to observe sh feeding. I dont think this means you and I cant chum for snapper or even sharks, but dont jump into the water with them because it is against the law, not to mention stupid. To me, that is like making it against the law to build a big re and then jump in the middle of it. I still dont believe dive boats should chum up a bunch of sharks even if it wasnt against the law, simply because some knuckle-head would come along and try to catch them.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net THE KING IS BACK IN TOWNSilver speedsters due in Panhandle waters this monthBy FRANK SARGEANTSpecial to The News The king sh are in at Tampa! Thats big news for Panhandle anglers, because it means the run of the big mackerel has nally started to move north, after stalling for some time off Fort Myers this year because of a wave of late cold fronts. Water temperatures in the Panhandle still are at about 65 degrees, and thats too cold for any signi cant number of kings, but all it will take is a week of warm, sunny weather to make things right. When the water hits 68 degrees, the bait will move, and with it will come the kings to say nothing of the Spanish, the cobia, the bonito and a bit of everything else. Scientists with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute have learned that most of the kings that summer in Northwest Florida spend winters off the Florida Keys and in the Atlantic as far north as Palm Beach, but as soon as the waters begin to warm in spring, the sh move back into the Gulf and head north. They usually arrive in strength in the Panhandle shortly after April 15, with May through October offering steady action. When the big schools of cigar minnows and herring arrive, the kings will be with them, anywhere from a half-mile off the beach to the wrecks 15 miles out and farther. A lot of sh also typically run the breaks offshore at 80 and at 160 feet. Kings are members of the tuna family, but are for the most part found on the coastal shelf; they are green water sh rather than the true pelagics of the open sea. Theyre caught with some regularity from Panhandle piers. School kings, aka snakes, are slender speedsters that average 7 to 10 pounds; they make up the bulk of the king sh schools. But there are also plenty of smokers in the mix, sh of 20 pounds and up, which literally are capable of making a misty smoke y from a reel as they scream line off at 30 miles an hour. Kings reach lengths approaching 6 feet and weights more than 90 pounds in a lifespan maxing out close to 20 years. The current IGFA all-tackle record is 93 pounds, caught in Puerto Rico in 1999. Fish of 50 pounds are caught occasionally in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but most of the line class records come in winter around the Florida Keys. Catching school kings is fairly straightforward; most anglers nd the sh by watching for diving birds or for other boats already on the school and proceed to troll a 5-inch Clark or Drone spoon weighted with a trolling lead of a couple ounces around the outer edges of the school, or around arti cial or natural reefs and current breaks. Pulling the spoon behind a No. 2 or 3 planer also is highly effective, and during the dawn bite when the sh are often on top, they can be caught on unweighted spoons and jigs and even occasionally on a big topwater lure worked very fast. Kings can also be caught on a number of big lures including the Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow Magnum, the Manns Stretch 25 and Stretch 30 and Mirrolure 113MR, which can be trolled at speeds to 9 knots without broaching its a great locator lure. Some also do well with a large chrome Rat-L-Trap, a vibrating slab lure. Another Panhandle favorite for these schoolers is a cigar minnow on a featherduster rig the tubular body of the cigar minnow trolls true while many at-sided bait species tend to spin. Trolling speed is typically 4 to 6 knots. You can catch a lot of kings by just pulling a rigged minnow at sunrise while everybody else is trying to catch live bait. Frozen cigar minnows are available at all Panhandle bait shops. For the larger kings, live bait is generally best bet; a large blue-runner or thread herring (aka greenback) on a stinger rig is the ticket. Most anglers use No. 6 copper-color wire as leader to prevent cutoffs on the razor-like teeth of the mackerels. One small triple-X strong treble goes through the nostrils, and a second dangles along the sides about 6 inches back. The rig prevents kings chomping off the bait sh tail without getting hooked, as they frequently do otherwise. The baits often can be caught around channel markers on a sabiki rig, a chain of small ies. These channel markers also often hold both kings and Spanish never pass one up if youre hunting sh. The live baits are eased along at walking speed, considerably slower than rigged baits or spoons. Some anglers like to lay down a scent trail by dragging a chum bag chopped bait sh, dogfood and menhaden oil is a popular mix as they troll a circular pattern around a reef or hard bottom area, or simply circle bait sh schools. A favorite trick of tournament anglers is to sh a live bait down the color break line that makes up outside the larger inlets on strong outgoing tides on the outside of this line is clear water, pale green, while on the inside the water is black from the tannin-stained bays. Theres usually a lot of grass oating down the line, and lots of crabs and other edibles in the eddies. The anglers slowly work the live baits down the green side of this line. Either way, once the migration arrives, the action is near certain.SPECIAL TO THE NEWS OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 9, 2014 Page 6www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection& Brought home a big buck or sh?

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.comWednesday, April 9, 2014 APage 7SectionBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Khaliel Spearman is aware of history in the Halifax All-Star Classic. Now hes aware of his place in it. The Rutherford senior set the overall scoring record with 37 points in leading the East to a 120-115 win over the West at the Billy Harrison Field House on Saturday. His achievement was nearly matched by the Wests Austin Carnley, who broke a long-standing team record with 30 points. The outcome also was the highest-scoring game in the 10-year history of the event. Spearman battled East teammate Alex Brown for scoring honors early in the second half and nished the nal 20 minutes with 28 points. He and Brown were instrumental in crafting a 12-2 run in 70 seconds that turned a vepoint lead into a 99-84 East cushion with 8:42 to play. Spearman had 31 points, one more than previous East scoring record-holder Jon Wade, with a little more than 2 minutes to go. East coaches Travis Blanton and Thomas Register called timeout in the nal minutes and informed Spearman that he was nearing Taliah Moores overall mark of 33 set last year. Spearman tied Moore with a jumper and surpassed her with four free throws, the nal two capping the score. Spearman spoke fondly of Wade, who also played at Rutherford, during Media Day on Friday. Spearman joked Well, hes a good Jon Wade, but hes no Khaliel Spearman. No, indeed, as Spearman became the fourth Ram to earn MVP honors since the award was instituted in 2007. With all of these great teammates I have, I didnt expect this, Spearman said. Its a great accomplishment and it feels good to continue the tradition of Rudd (Rutherford) winning that MVP. The East also extended its winning streak to four games and secured the seventh win in the series. The triumph looked to be in doubt for 30 minutes, as Carnley of Paxton hit four of his nine 3-pointers in the rst half and the West trailed by only two points, 53-51. Carnley, who was the West MVP, and Ronnie Baylark, who scored 25 points, helped the West build a 65-55 lead three minutes into the second half. Spearmans 3-pointer 6 minutes later capped an East rally for an 82-80 lead. The East didnt trail again. We gave them a run for their money, said Carnley, who broke Jeremy Paynes West record of 27 points set in the inaugural year of 2005. I just wanted to do my best to help my team, but Im not gonna lie, it feels good to set the scoring record. Spearman agreed that the individual accolade was satisfying and the new basketball he received as MVP also would be a nice addition to his pickup games. But he said there was more to the honor and more to the victory. This is to show people that we put in the work and work hard at Rutherford, Spearman said. And we (the East) didnt want this (streak) to end. Chai Baker scored 15 points and Roderick Copeland 13 for the East, which connected on 19 3-pointers. Denzel Ware added 20 points, Lane Strickland scored 12 and Wyatt Kemper 11 for the West, which held seven rst-half leads.WEST (115) Carnley 10 1-2 30, Matthews 3 0-0 6, Baylark 9 5-8 25, Strickland 5 2-2 12, Ware 7 4-8 20, Lawton 4 0-0 8, Kemper 4 3-5 11, Aaron 0 0-0 0, Hartzog 1 0-0 3, Block 0 0-0 0.

NEWS HERALD-AREA TEAMS SWEEP HALIFAX ALL-STAR CLASSICBEASTS OF THE EASTBy BRANDON WALKERHalifax Media Services PANAMA CITY In the fall, Malone High School senior Curteeona Brelove will take her talents to Virginia Commonwealth University. On Saturday, however, she put on one last show for local fans at the 10th Halifax All-Star Classic at Gulf Coast State College. Brelove, a 6-foot-3 forward, scored a team-high 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to help the East team earn an 81-73 win over the West in the game that pits seniors from The News Heralds eightcounty area against representatives from Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties. I really like this team a lot, said Brelove, who scored 14 of her 24 points in the rst half. We had good chemistry, played well together. It means a lot to play well today. The victory for the East is the third in 10 years, and rst since 2012. For Chipley coach Kimberly Tuel, the win was satisfying. We had a lot of talent, said Tuel, who led her team to the Class 1A state championship game this season. Any time you get this much talent together, its fun to coach. Choctawhatchee guard Brittany Washington, the Wests Most Valuable Player, led all scorers with 25 points. For the East, 11 players reached the scoring column, led by Breloves 24 and 15 from Sneads guard Tasherica McMillon. The East also enjoyed a 44-29 edge on the glass, an advantage it used to outscore the West 13-5 over the games nal three minutes. I thought their size was a big difference, said Paxton coach Steve Williams, who led his Lady Cats to the 1A state championship over Chipley. Our girls played hard and played together. I really enjoy coming over here to this game and seeing players get to play together that have been opponents all year. Its a great game. The East opened the game on a 9-0 scoring run and the West never fully recovered. The East led throughout, and the closest the West got was three points when Washington connected on a 3-pointer with three minutes left to cut the advantage to 68-65. Brelove and company were too much down the stretch on the way to the eightpoint win. I just wanted to come out and play my game, Brelove said. After that, I just let the game take care of itself.WEST (73) Washington 9 3-3 25, Perot 3 0-0 6, Spaw 5 2-2 12, Williams 1 0-0 3, Murray 3 0-1 8, Paul 3 0-1 7, Walker 3 6-12 12. Totals: 27 11-19 73.

Museum Director Dorothy Odom, who also participated in the class, remarked: The museum is pleased to offer this type of class to our community its fun and educational! The art of basket weaving has been an important skill for thousands of years and, someday, the baskets woven here today will be remembered as Greatgreat Grandma made this in 2014, and its still just as beautiful as when she wove it!

SHILTsSEsS WELCOME BABY GIRL Jackson Hospital recognizes medical staff on Doctors Day DR. GGENE PPROUGH sSAYsS GOOd DBYE TO CCHIPOLA Many of us can remember being cared for by our parents when we were injured as children. Whether cutting our leg while climbing a tree or swallowing one too many pieces of candy, our parents always came to the rescue with soothing words and a rst aid kit in hand. Since our pets are beloved members of the family, shouldnt we do the same for them? Here are some tips and tricks to help ease your pets pain in case of emergency. Just like for people, there are some basic rst aid supplies for your pet to always have readily available in your home. A good idea is to have a pet rst aid kit so that you can concentrate on what you can do for your pet constructively rather than looking all over the place for something that might work but is less than ideal, said Dr. James Barr, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. However, the most important thing is to have the phone number of your local veterinarian in case of emergency, including what to do after hours. Some items to include in your rst aid kit could be an assortment of bandages, an instant cold pack, gauze and roll pads, medical gloves, triple antibiotic ointment, alcohol and antiseptic wipes, a slip-style leash, lubricating jelly, tongue depressors, and tweezers/forceps. Knowing how to perform basic CPR on your pet and stop external bleeding by applying a pressure wrap are also important skills you should acquire. Two common examples of emergencies in which basic rst aid knowledge can be life saving for your pet include exposure to toxins and excessive external bleeding. If your pet is exposed to a toxin, get the name of the toxin and try to gure out how much they have ingested, and then call your vet to give you further instructions, said Barr. If your pet is experiencing severe blood loss resulting from external bleeding, wrap the wound with a towel or bandage to help stop the bleeding and apply pressure to help slow the loss of blood. Just remember that if being injured is traumatizing for us, imagine how it must be for our pets. In the event of an emergency, it is important to do everything you can to minimize their anxiety. This will not only help prevent further injury for them, but also to you and your family. One must be very careful with injured pets because they are unable to communicate with us and us with them, so they are often afraid, said Barr. That fear is then translated into aggression, and pets can injure even the best meaning bystander because they are in pain. Much like you would to a distraught person, it is best to talk gently to them using comforting words. While rst aid is certainly not a substitute for proper veterinary care, it may be extremely helpful in preventing further injury and easing your pets pain. Keeping these tips in mind can save you a lot of troubles in the long run and even ultimately help to save your pets life.

Kasey Combs, 20, was traveling southbound on Kirkland Road in Chipley at 4:16 p.m. Saturday, April 5, on a Huffy bicycle when the accident occurred. According to a Florida Wednesday, APRIL 9 2014 Volume 90, Number 103 Expanded gambling effort ends Staff and wire reports TALLAHASSEE A key lawmaker has pulled the plug on a legislative plan to broaden gambling in Florida during this years session, but supporters promise to revive the effort next year. The surprise move was announced in the middle of a Senate budget discussion by Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, who had led the discussion to implement more gambling in the state, opening it up to outside interests, including Las Vegas-style casinos in South Florida, as well as to establish a gaming commission to oversee the sector in the state. The move could be a setback for Ebro Greyhound Parks plan to expand gambling at its venue, but it came as no surprise to Stockton Hess, president and general manager of the track in Washington County, where voters approved slot machines in a 2012 referendum. Slot machines were part of Ebros plan. Gov. Rick Scott earlier made it clear negotiations with the Seminole tribe would continue beyond the end of the legislative session, Hess said. That was pretty much a foregone conclusion, he said. Hess and some others had hoped the bill would remove the requirement that tracks run a certain number of races if they offer card rooms. Dog tracks and animal advocates alike have pushed for decoupling removing ties Sen. Richter steps back amid talks with Seminole tribe SEN. GARRETT RICHTER STOCKTON HESS By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Washington and Holmes county residents soon will be paying less for vehicle registration and title fees with last weeks passing of a bill that rolls the fees back to their pre-2009 rates. The measure is expected to mean an annual savings of between $18 and $25 for vehicle owners here. The Legislature raised the fees in 2009, along with others associated with drivers licenses, drivers records and ID cards. The move was meant to generate revenue at a time when the states nances were tight. Despite backing the fees in 2009, Republican legislative leaders supported the rollback, which is effective Sept. 1. From day one of the 2014 legislative session, Gov. (Rick) Scott and the Florida Legislature committed to making a reduction in vehicle fees the centerpiece of meaningful tax relief for Floridas families, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. I am pleased to see (the) bill become the centerpiece of the governors $500 million Its Your Money tax cut and honored to witness this recurring reduction in vehicle registration fees become law here today. Washington County Tax Collector Ken Naker reminds residents who still need to renew before September that they should renew for only one year in order to receive the savings for the next time their renewal is due. In fact, Naker is temporarily removing the two-year renewal option on notice statements to help ensure motorists here dont lose out. Beginning Sept. 1, 2014, most people will see an average savings of about $18 to $25 depending on vehicle type on their tag registrations and renewals, Naker said. While this is good news for some, its not for the thousands of motor vehicle owners statewide who have already renewed for two years. The legislation prohibits any refunds for the higher fees paid prior to the Sept. 1 effective date, so I will be temporarily Tag fee rollback effective Sept. 1 Christian camp eyed near Vernon By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Planning Commission approval a conceptual plan to allow development of a church camp and retreat to begin its initial phase at the site of The Groves RV Park, just east of Vernon, when they met in regular session last week. Austin Norwood of Pine Beach Christian Camps Inc. presented the plan, saying its expected to bring new jobs and stimulate the economy. If we go on a timeline from today, the expected completion date will be the second quarter of 2016, Norwood said. We would need to hire staff, and we would look to local residents to ll those positions. There are about 10 different job titles the camp would ll, but the exact number of job I will be temporarily removing the two-year renewal option offered on the tag renewal notices mailed out each month. This option will still be available if desired, but again, there will be no bene t from the registration fee reduction. Ken Naker, Washington County tax collector There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag. That fee is around $225, and thats a big fee. It can be tough to pay that.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, April 9, 2014 Special to The News CHIPLEY Join Ring14 USA Outreach Inc.s WalkA-Thon to Walk Circles Around Ring 14. The event is set to take place May 10 at Roulhac Middle School and is sponsored by the RMS Student Council. The inaugural Ring Walk Charity Walk-A-Thon will see walkers of all ages circle the bus loop while they enjoy preand post-event refreshments and entertainment at the school, 1535 Brickyard Road. All proceeds from the walk will help make an immediate difference in the lives of the children with Ring 14 and their families. Your gift will go toward research, raising awareness and family support of this rare disorder. Ring 14 is a rare genetic disorder caused by a mutation in the 14th chromosome. It is also known as an orphan disease because of the low number of children affected by it. Currently in the United States, there are 26 known children who suffer from Ring 14. Symptoms of Ring 14 vary from person to person, but they are usually very signicant. Kim, a 12-year-old student at RMS, is one of those children. Although she struggles daily with many of the symptoms of Ring 14, such as medically refractory epilepsy, hypotonia, microcephaly, symptomatic autism, sensory processing delays, neurogenic bladder, ADHD, developmental delays, gastroparesis, migraines, social issues, calcium defencies and more, she wakes up smiling every day. It is through the support of the staff and students of RMS and our community that we can make a difference in her life and the lives of the other children and families who deal with these struggles daily. The event starts at 8:30 a.m. with check-in at 8 a.m. All walkers will receive free gift bags and have the chance to win prizes all while helping some of the worlds most medically rare and fragile children. The loop will take walkers about 5 miles and 20 laps around the bus circle. Walkers, walking teams, those with strollers and wheelchair participants are all welcome. Drink stations will be provided along the route. To sign up or become a sponsor, contact Connie Kowitz at 703-9264, Greta Draayom at greta. draayom@wcsdschools. com or register at www.ring14usa.org. Ring14USA Outreach is a nonprot 501(c)(3) organization founded by a group of parents whose children have Ring 14. The organization was inspired by a sister group in Italy. This Italian organization proved that it is possible for a few people to raise signicant money to fund critical research, provide vital education and change lives. We wish to do the same. It is our goal to partner with the international organization to initiate and fund global collaborations for research while still being able to provide local support to North America.

Richter also cited the on going negotiations between the governor and the Semi nole Indian tribe, which has seven gambling estab lishments in the state that include a contract between the state and the tribe. One of the central ele ments of the deal is a provi sion that guarantees a de gree of gambling exclusivity for the tribe. Recently, it has become very apparent to all of us who are tracking this issue that unless the governor ne gotiates a new compact with the Seminole tribe, there wont be any comprehensive reform legislation this year, Richter said. Sound policy must take into account the compacts substantial reve nue sharing and exclusivity provisions. The deal between the state and the tribe, signed four years ago, leans heavily on giving the Seminoles ex clusivity in several games. The contract overall ends in 2030, but a provision on some games ends next year, which is the element that the gover nor is in talks with the tribe about. Violating that exclusivity would put the state at the risk of losing substantial money. Richter said he was told the negotiations are going well, and I think we can reasonably expect an agreement soon that will signicantly alter revenue sharing and revenue shar ing provisions. But he added, If we put the gaming reform cart in front of the Seminole com pact horse, we run the risk of getting policies at cross purposes. At the start of the ses sion, the House and Sen ate each presented a bill of more than 400 pages aimed at creating a new structure for gambling in the state. Both measures included provisions to give voters a say on the matter. Expanded gambling is opposed by groups includ ing the Seminole tribe and the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Both Las Vegas Sands Corp. and Malaysian-based Genting Group have court ed lawmakers for years in hopes of landing choice spots for large casinos in South Florida. This is an issue that is going to take a lot more work, said Sen. Maria Lorts Sachs, D-Delray Beach. There are issues that we cannot resolve. Were at step one. Now its up to the executive branch and the people of Florida to decide. removing the two-year re newal option offered on the tag renewal notices mailed out each month. This op tion will still be available if desired, but again, there will be no benet from the registration fee reduction. Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell agrees and added that he and other tax collectors state wide are pleased at the bills passage. Im extremely happy the Legislature was able to get this passed and that the citizens are going to get a reduction in the fees theyre having to pay, Bell said. When this rst took place in 2009, our Association of Tax Collectors was very concerned and expressed disapproval at increasing the fees so dramatically. Bell also said he hopes this reduction might serve as a gateway for others. There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag, he said. That fee is around $225, and thats a big fee. It can be tough to pay that. For more information on how the bill affects their ve hicle registration, Washing ton County residents may call Naker at 638-6275, and Holmes County residents can reach Bell at 547-1115. GAMBLING from page A1 CAMP from page A1 positions it would offer is not yet known. According to the non prot groups business plan, more than 1,000 youth would attend the nonde nominational Christian camp each summer, with the facility offered to other groups as a retreat site in the offseason. This is also an ecotour ism opportunity, Norwood said. It would put guests in the local hotels and stim ulate the local economy as they shop and eat locally. In addition to the camp, we would host educational eld trips for classes study ing nature and conserva tion topics. Planning Commission members expressed con cerns over the sites loca tion within a 100-year ood plain; however, County En gineer Cliff Knauer said he would work with the group during the conceptual stages to ensure county re quirements are met. CYCLIST from page A1 Highway Patrol report, Combs failed to stop at a stop sign and traveled into the path of a 2007 Ford F-150, which was traveling west bound on County Road 273. The FHP reports the trucks driver, 79-year old Walter Hayes of Bonifay, was unable to stop and struck Combs bicycle. Combs was ejected off the bicycle and into the ditch on the north side of County 273. No injuries are reported for Hayes, but Combs was transported to Bay Medical Center and is listed in criti cal condition.

OPINION www.chipleypaper.com A Page 4 Section Our VIEW Wednesday, April 9, 2014 The Eleventh Anniversary of Perrys Prattle falls on a printing day, so please get out the bells and whistles and send a roaring Happy Anniversary Greetings to Perry Wells, who became Perrys Prattle on April 9, 2003. The idea of the long running and, what I hope to be still popular news paper column, was begun after a trip to a session of the Florida Legislature by your writer and his radio sidekick at the time, Roger Jones. Roger was affectionately known on radio WBGC by the stage name, Don Rogers. He and I dressed out in our nest attire and made the early morning drive to Tallahassee where we attended both a Florida Senate and a Florida House of Representative session where discussions in both were rather spirted that day. We made a walking tour of the Governors Mansion, then occupied by Governor Jeb Bush. We did get personal recognition from Governor Bush by dropping a few names, like my nephew, Kelvin Wells of DeFuniak Springs and niece, Kelly Beth Wells, who was already functioning as a Legislative Lobbyist. We saw her, quite by accident, as we enjoyed our lunch at a side walk setting where food was allowed to be eaten among throngs of patrons. The crowning touch of the trip was when Don and I attended the Museum located in the former Capitol Building. Here we splurged $3 each and did a recording simulating an actual broadcast of a former Florida Governor concerning a noteworthy news item at the time. My speaker was former Governor Leroy Collins and the issue of integration, especially of downtown Tallahassee eating facilities, was Governors headline that day. This video, was brought back to Chipley and shown in the news of ce. It was the springboard for the editors of the Washington News to suggest that Perry Wells become a writer for the mid week edition of the paper. The three or four weeks expected career as a writer has become an eleven years tenure. This writing milestone coincides with a second important facet of my life. April 20 will mark seventy years since Perry Wells and twenty-eight other young men and women graduated from Vernon High School. It was on Thursday, April 20, 1944 that this momentous occasion became a reality and one which we have honored with periodic reunions. Soon after our rst get together in 1964, we lost our rst class mate, Allee Whidden. Before we met again, classmate Mildred Farmer Ward succumbed to cancer. As the years have rolled by, class reunions have become more frequent, seemingly with always another death to report among our number. As president of the 1944 Class, it has continued my responsibility to help plan our events, and try to give reports on those who, for various reasons, could not attend. Deaths, illness and other misfortunes, became commonplace. Surviving class members recall that Martha Talbot, Johnnie B. Walsingham, Hilda Hightower Mullen and Oakley K. Hightower died at young ages. Others who died in later years include Ruby Brock Gale, Ellafair Walsingham Hess, Tommie Lee Dunn Kolmetz, Jacqueline Burdeshaw Donaldson, Ida Frances Kelly Hunter, Pauline Davis Perkins, Veston Newsom, Joe E. Pate, Catherine Dietz Humphrey, Ruby Ann Jones, Helen Owens Wray, Lorene Jenkins Sanders and Myrell Brock Simmons. Archie L. Cook and Shyne Marley died after our 2010 reunion. Hurdis A. Brock passed away in November after attending the reunion in April of 2012. Shortly after the 2013 event, held April 20, death came to Thomas Knight in May and to Estelle Hewett Scott in September. Frederick Kolmetzs wife, Nadine also died in October and Julius J. Fussell, husband of Frances Shores Fussell, died in June following the April reunion. In considering a 2014 reunion, we noted only ten surviving members, with most of them being physically unable to come. A decision was made to meet with the Vernon High School Alumni groups monthly meeting set for April 1, 2014 at Baileys Restaurant in Chipley. During the planning stage, the letter to classmate, Bessie Lee Milton Davenport, was returned marked Unable to Forward. Subsequent follow-up revealed Bessie Lee passed away on May 24, 2012. Her funeral was held May 29 in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, with arrangements entrusted to Settle Wilder Funeral Home. Classmates Bill McFatter, Louvern Chestnut Mizell, Emma Lou Chesser and Myrtle Morris Wolfe responded to their invitation letter, but reported being unable to attend. No response came from Trudell Brock Worthington, Carl Hightower, Frances Shores Fussell nor Carol McFatter Hudson. Frederick and I were the only classmates to attend. He was accompanied by sons, Charles and Robert, with Robert bringing wife, Debbie Kolmetz and two daughers, Amber and Christie. My wife, Hester was unable to attend. My cousin, Kathleen Wells Sauers, a 1946 VHS graduate, along with her daughter, Kathy Sauers Wansley, came in support of this last 1944 gathering. Steve Brock, son of Hurdis, came in tribute to his late father, and Betty Cook, widow of Jamie Cook, came in respect to Jamies brother, classmate Archie Cook. The VHS Alumni, including our few Classmates, brought the total in attendance to 34. The attitude of the gathering was upbeat and positive, although remembering those who are seriously sick and in rm. No sadness nor sentimentality was witnessed at the reality of this being the last formal reunion called the Class of Vernon High School of 1944. The sentiment seemed to be: Thank you Lord was looking after all of us throughout these years and permitting us to gather as a class and otherwise keep in touch with each other for these 70 years. See you all next week. Special to the News Bessie Lee Milton Davenport shown from the Obituary Announcement. She was born in Vernon Oct. 5, 1925, and died May 24, 2012, in New Smyrna Beach. Marking 11 years of Prattle PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells Dear Editor, You may not be aware or think that it will affect you, but the Social Security of ce in Gadsden County closed April 1. Gadsden County senior citizens will no longer have a place to resolve problems or even ask questions about the bene ts they worked for all their lives. Many of these seniors have no access to computers or are not familiar with them, and the small monthly checks they receive do not include travel expenses to go to facilities 30 miles away. Since Social Security is a federal program, shouldnt our congressman in Washington be taking the lead on this? Congressman Steve Southerland, according to his newsletter, authored a letter March 18 to the U.S. Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn W. Colvin requesting a meeting regarding the closure of the Social Security Administration of ce in Quincy. A letter requesting a meeting! Was that some kind of April Fools joke, or was it an intentional delay? Even if Mrs. Colvin received the letter and responded, it sometimes takes two weeks for a letter to reach a congressman due to the intense scrutiny by law enforcement. The Social Security of ce in Washington is not hard to nd. It is two blocks past K Street. Congressman Southerland should know where that is. A short walk, an email, or a phone call could have facilitated a meeting as soon as he heard about the proposed closing. It is much harder to reverse something after it is done than to negotiate to stop it beforehand. Maybe thats one reason it closed; the letter may still be in the mail. I suppose the announcement of his requesting a meeting with the SS Administrator does look good in Congressman Southerlands newsletter since he faces a very strong opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, in the election this November. To my knowledge, neither the occurrence nor the outcome of the meeting with Mrs. Colvin has been made public. It seems unlikely that a meeting with Congressman Southerland would be very productive anyway, since he follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. It would certainly upset billionaire coal and gas magnates like the Koch brothers who have made tremendous donations to Southerlands campaign. It was just announced by the Tampa Bay Times that in the next few weeks you will see yet another TV ad praising Southerland for his opposition to Obamacare. The billionaire Koch brothers funded AFP pays for the $150,000 ad. They already spent $160,000 to air one in February, because Southerland is considered to be one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation. The ad says, He puts us rst, not special interests. Ironically, the ad itself is paid for by special interests. It is a good thing we have leaders on the local level like Gadsden County Commissioner Mrs. Brenda Holt, who is in the process of making social security services available at other locations and proposing other options on how the of ce can stay open and still save money. I am on Social Security, and I appreciate the good work Mrs. Holt is doing. If our present Washington politician lets this happen in Mrs. Holts county it can happen in other counties throughout our district. Jim Clements Panama City HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

Call 638-0212. Social Security Of ce is closed Whats our congressman going to do about it? Letter to the EDITOR Theres a lot to learn if well slow down An American History assignment in Faye Copes 10th grade class at Chipley High School once required that I interview someone who had lived through the World War II era. My father knew the perfect candidate. Grandmothers brother, GreatUncle Melton, not only fought, but was shot in the leg paratrooping over the Rhine River. He earned the Purple Heart. This held little signi cance, though, to a 15year-old kid who just wanted a good grade. Uncle Meltons lively blue eyes crinkled as he began to talk. I was soon squirming in my chair. Before he could nish droning on about a practical joking paratrooper buddy named Richard, I interrupted. Tell me what it was like to ght in combat?, I asked impatiently. Uncle Melton wanted to tell stories. All I wanted was to get through, go home and watch television. Arrogant in youth, my agenda was more important than what I could learn from him above and beyond what I had to have for a school assignment. Uncle Melton was a fading link to family history, but I was clueless. He passed away a few years later and, as time also passed, I grew to understand what an opportunity Id missed to learn more of my family legacy and the threads that bonded that eras brothers-inarms. Id give much now, to not only hear the rest of that yarn, but to also give my uncle the attention his years and life experiences deserved: to be heard and respected. Id like to hear now about Richard and what a great joke he played that still had my uncle laughing and telling the tale almost 50 years later. Why would we not want advice, stories and life experience from those who have already lived it? Who says we have to make all our own mistakes? Traditions, rituals, and good old stories were once passed from generation to generation. Doesnt seem to be happening much anymore. Our older generation holds great lessons for us: history, humor and homespun wisdom better than we can ever learn online. Its easy to grow impatient with the slow pace of our elders conversation. They hand-wrote letters and worked hours preparing just one meal. We dash off emails while waiting for the microwave to ping. Our older generation is ready to hand down to us the keys to the world keys that can unlock much of the mystery that bedevils our life. Listen to some of our elders. See the emotions they feel as they share memories. Its one of the best ways they can still contribute. Chances are, we all know a perfect candidate for this particular history lesson. If, that is, we can slow our pace long enough to listen. CAROL KENT Editor POSTMASTER: Send address change to: Washington County News P.O.

Visit our F acebook pag e for mor e information about the W atfor d F amily: https://www .facebook.com/gr oups/ NelsonW atfor dF amily/ TALLAHASSEE (AP) The Flori da Senate on Thursday approved the so-called warning shot bill, moving to signicantly revise the states self-defense laws for the rst time since the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The bill, which partly was in spired by the case of a Jasonville woman sentenced to 20 years in prison after ring a shot near her estranged husband during an altercation, passed the chamber 32-7. The woman, Marissa Alex ander, is out on bail awaiting a new trial. The bill, which earlier re ceived backing from the Repub lican-controlled House, now goes to the desk of Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Alexander had tried to assert a stand your ground defense, but a judge rejected her claim. She was sentenced under a 1999 law called -20-life in which mandatory sentences are im posed for using a gun in certain cases. That law requires that anyone who shows a gun in the commis sion of certain felonies receive an automatic 10 years in prison. If a gun is red, its an automatic 20 years under that law. Shoot and wound someone and the manda tory sentence is 25 years to life. The warning shot bill, how ever, would allow for instances of threatened use of force with out falling under the rule of -20-life. NRA lobbyist Marion Ham mer and supporters said -20life wasnt intended to be used in self-defense cases. This is an important bill because it stops the abuse of 10-20-life and keeps prosecu tors from using it against people who use lawful self-defense, Hammer said. She added that 10-20-life is not about self-de fense. Self-defense is a constitu tional right. 10-20-life was passed to stop prosecutors and judges from slapping gun-wielding crim inals on the wrist and giving them reduced sentences or probation. Opponents of the proposed changes, however, argued that the so-called warning shot leg islation would encourage more people to re weapons. Theres two magic words the publics going to hear warning shot, Sen. Chris Smith, R-Fort Lauderdale, said. I just dont think its responsible right now to encourage people to give warn ing shots in the air, in a crowd or wherever. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Greg Evers, a Republican from Pensacola. Evers opposes the phrase warning shot and em phasized that the bill is all about self-defense. This bill, if you read it, does not say anything about a warning shot, Evers said. What this bill does, it says, if you are threatened you can use equal or threatened use of force to protect yourself. This is about self-defense. This is about the right thing to do. Alexander attempted to use a stand your ground defense which allows the use of lethal force when threatened with death or great bodily harm. The defense failed because she did not actually shoot her husband. Opponents in the House and Senate have folded warning shot arguments into stand your ground debates. A commonly used example is the acquittal of George Zimmer man, who was accused and later acquitted in the death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. In another case, Michael Dunn recently was convicted of seconddegree attempted murder after shooting into a car full of black teenagers. The jury deadlocked on a murder charge against him in the death of one of those teens, Jordan Davis, in Jacksonville. Some have questioned what qualies as a warning shot and how many warning shots are al lowed. Smith argued that the bill sent to Scott would give some one like Michael Dunn the op portunity to get away with lling a car with 11 bullets. An aide to Scott said he will give the bill close scrutiny. Gov. Scott supports the Sec ond Amendment and Floridas self-defense laws, spokesman John Tupps said. He looks for ward to reviewing this legisla tion in its entirety now that it has been approved by both the House and the Senate. Warning shot bill passes Florida Senate Panhandle Watermelon festival announces 14 lineup From staff reports On the heels of last years record breaking festival attendance, the Panhandle Watermelon Festival once again has lined up a group of performers to ensure this years festival will continue to offer thousands a jam packed two day music and family experience like no other locally. The 58th Panhandle Watermelon Festival proudly welcomes CMA award winner and Grammy-nominated country legend John Anderson as this years Friday night concert headliner. Fans also can look forward to country music star Jeff Bates, whose career has included seven chart singles on the Billboard country charts. Holding to tradition, Panhandle Watermelon Festival consistently spotlights legendary music acts coupled with family oriented activities, making this two day festival unlike any other offered in the area, Chairman Colby Peel said. Our goal remains to bring the highest quality entertainment to this community while ensuring this event is free to everyone who attends. Made possible in large part by presenting sponsors McDonalds, Community South Credit Union, Tobacco Free Florida, Northwest Florida Community Hospital and Wilbur Smith Law Firm, visitors can experience this years Friday night music acts while children participate in one of the many child-centered activities on the festival grounds including a bounce house and slide sponsored by longtime supporter, Community South Credit Union and the traditional watermelon contests hosted by Northwest Florida Community Hospital, all of which will be conveniently at Pals Park. Come hungry and feast on fare that goes hand in hand with Friday night watermelon, including hamburgers and hotdogs prepared by the Chipley Fire Department. Saturdays events commence early with the annual 5,000 meter Hot Trot Run at the Washington/ Holmes Technical Center. At the same time, spectators can head over to the Shrine Club for the traditional Pancake Breakfast. The family favorite Watermelon Parade is scheduled for 10 am. Participants will organize at the Chipley High School Football Stadium and continue east on U.S. Highway 90 through downtown to the delight of hundreds of eager faces. Festivities will begin immediately following the parade at the Ag Center with gospel group Crossroads kicking off another talented lineup of musicians. The time-honored introduction of queens and the watermelon contest and auction, hosted by Auctioneer David Corbin, round out the lunchtime activities. The Fine Arts Show, hosted by the Washington County Arts Council, will be on display in the east wing of the Ag Center. This show will feature artwork from local artists as well as noted artists from the Northwest Florida region. Back by popular demand, Grammy award-winning bluegrass group and crowd favorite Dailey and Vincent again will cap off Saturdays musical lineup. Numerous food and arts and crafts vendors will be scattered throughout the Ag Center grounds and visitors can drop by the Kiwanis table and pick up a complimentary slice of watermelon while supplies last. Bill would close medical clinic loophole TALLAHASSEE (AP) There is one simple way for a Florida medical clinic to avoid being licensed and undergoing an annual inspection: Dont accept insurance. A bill moving through the Legislature would close that loophole for so-called cash-only clinics, which can escape government oversight because the statutory denition of a clinic is interpreted as an operation that takes thirdparty insurance. The bill (SB 746) sponsored by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, would require that all medical clinics be subject to licensure, renewal and inspection, whether they accept insurance or not. Many of the cash-only clinics are run by business people with no connection to the medical eld, but must hire a licensed doctor to oversee the operation and sign prescriptions. Because the clinics arent licensed, the state doesnt know how many exist. There is no regulation of clinics, it truly is the Wild West out there, said Kenneth Woliner, a Boca Raton physician who thinks the clinics should be regulated. He said nding clinics that run without oversight is simple: The places open, treat patients and then quickly move on. The doctors who are hired to run the clinics are often older doctors and they just need money and dont care, he said. Sobels bill is moving slowly, if at all. She looks at the disinterest in the statehouse as a problem of regionalism. Most of the unlicensed clinics are in her district and other parts of South Florida, so getting legislators from other parts of the state interested is difcult. This is often how the pill mills operate, Sobel said, referring to clinics and pharmacies that illicitly dispense prescription narcotics like painkillers. But Im not sure anyone up here knows that. They just dont have the problem to the extent we do. WASHINGTON (AP) With Mideast peace talks on the verge of collapse, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared Friday that its reality check time on whether an agreement can be reached anytime soon after decades of bitterness between Israeli and Palestinian leaders. The U.S. will re-evaluate its role as mediator, he said. It was Kerrys most pessimistic take yet on the peace effort after almost nine months of frustrating talks with little progress to show. Kerry made clear that his push for peace is not yet over, and he said both sides claim to want to continue negotiating. But he also said that continuing setbacks in the process culminating this week with tit-fortat moves by Israeli and Palestinian ofcials that have upended goodfaith bargaining could force the U.S. to shift focus to other crises where Washington might have more success. We have an enormous amount on the plate, Kerry told reporters during a diplomatic visit to Rabat, Morocco, the end of a marathon trip that saw him jumping back and forth between Israel, Ramallah and Europe. He noted that the U.S. also is dealing with challenges in Ukraine, Iran and Syria, and he said, There are limits to the amount of time and effort the United States can spend if the parties themselves are unwilling to take constructive steps in order to be able to move forward. The nine months of talks are scheduled to end April 29, and Kerry has been pressing to have them continue through much of the rest of the year. But were not going to sit here indenitely, he said. So its reality check time, and we intend to evaluate precisely what the next steps will be. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he would anticipate that a conversation with the president is in the near future. Kerry has spent major portions of his 14 months as secretary of state pursuing an Israeli-Palestinian agreement despite the seemingly long odds. A collapse of the talks could be a diplomatic embarrassment for him and the administration and a danger in the region as well. Failed efforts in the past have led to major bouts of violence. On Friday, Palestinians red rockets at Israel, which responded with warplanes attacking military targets in the Gaza Strip. Uzi Rabi, director of Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University, said its doubtful the two sides will broker a nal peace agreement, given years of bitterness and sharp differences over borders, claims to Jerusalem and recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. But he said the talks should continue if only to ward off a new Palestinian uprising against Israelis that would surely lead to a surge in violence. Kerrys patience wearing thin as Mideast peace talks falter

I often wondered why someone didnt offer that type of dive experience in local waters. I also wondered why shermen in the Bahamas didnt converge in the area the sharks were being chummed for divers to photograph. Im sure they would here. In the Bahamas, dive operators will gather sh guts and heads and freeze them in a big drum, then dump them into shallow water of 20 feet or so and get a bunch of sharks gathered, then let the divers in the boat jump overboard and watch the sharks devour the sh scraps. I saw a video one of our local divers took in the Bahamas during one of these shark feedings, and it was awesome. There were several varieties of sharks in the mix from reef sharks to small bulls. I didnt see anyone being attacked because these sharks had become accustomed to being fed. Thats not to say some shark that doesnt know the rules couldnt come along and bite someone. I read about a dive operation in Palm Beach that was busted for doing the very thing they were doing in the Bahamas. They were charged with illegally feeding sharks in state waters. The FWC calls it a public safety issue. I suppose it would be if one bit you, but how can they do it 90 miles to the east? The law reads that no diver shall engage in the practice of sh feeding. No person shall operate any vessel for hire for the purpose of carrying passengers to any site in the saltwaters of the state to engage in sh feeding or to allow such passengers to observe sh feeding. I dont think this means you and I cant chum for snapper or even sharks, but dont jump into the water with them because it is against the law, not to mention stupid. To me, that is like making it against the law to build a big re and then jump in the middle of it. I still dont believe dive boats should chum up a bunch of sharks even if it wasnt against the law, simply because some knuckle-head would come along and try to catch them. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net THE KING IS BACK IN TOWN Silver speedsters due in Panhandle waters this month By FRANK SARGEANT S pecial to The News The king sh are in at Tampa! Thats big news for Panhandle anglers, because it means the run of the big mackerel has nally started to move north, after stalling for some time off Fort Myers this year because of a wave of late cold fronts. Water temperatures in the Panhandle still are at about 65 degrees, and thats too cold for any signi cant number of kings, but all it will take is a week of warm, sunny weather to make things right. When the water hits 68 degrees, the bait will move, and with it will come the kings to say nothing of the Spanish, the cobia, the bonito and a bit of everything else. Scientists with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute have learned that most of the kings that summer in Northwest Florida spend winters off the Florida Keys and in the Atlantic as far north as Palm Beach, but as soon as the waters begin to warm in spring, the sh move back into the Gulf and head north. They usually arrive in strength in the Panhandle shortly after April 15, with May through October offering steady action. When the big schools of cigar minnows and herring arrive, the kings will be with them, anywhere from a half-mile off the beach to the wrecks 15 miles out and farther. A lot of sh also typically run the breaks offshore at 80 and at 160 feet. Kings are members of the tuna family, but are for the most part found on the coastal shelf; they are green water sh rather than the true pelagics of the open sea. Theyre caught with some regularity from Panhandle piers. School kings, aka snakes, are slender speedsters that average 7 to 10 pounds; they make up the bulk of the king sh schools. But there are also plenty of smokers in the mix, sh of 20 pounds and up, which literally are capable of making a misty smoke y from a reel as they scream line off at 30 miles an hour. Kings reach lengths approaching 6 feet and weights more than 90 pounds in a lifespan maxing out close to 20 years. The current IGFA all-tackle record is 93 pounds, caught in Puerto Rico in 1999. Fish of 50 pounds are caught occasionally in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but most of the line class records come in winter around the Florida Keys. Catching school kings is fairly straightforward; most anglers nd the sh by watching for diving birds or for other boats already on the school and proceed to troll a 5-inch Clark or Drone spoon weighted with a trolling lead of a couple ounces around the outer edges of the school, or around arti cial or natural reefs and current breaks. Pulling the spoon behind a No. 2 or 3 planer also is highly effective, and during the dawn bite when the sh are often on top, they can be caught on unweighted spoons and jigs and even occasionally on a big topwater lure worked very fast. Kings can also be caught on a number of big lures including the Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow Magnum, the Manns Stretch 25 and Stretch 30 and Mirrolure 113MR, which can be trolled at speeds to 9 knots without broaching its a great locator lure. Some also do well with a large chrome Rat-L-Trap, a vibrating slab lure. Another Panhandle favorite for these schoolers is a cigar minnow on a featherduster rig the tubular body of the cigar minnow trolls true while many at-sided bait species tend to spin. Trolling speed is typically 4 to 6 knots. You can catch a lot of kings by just pulling a rigged minnow at sunrise while everybody else is trying to catch live bait. Frozen cigar minnows are available at all Panhandle bait shops. For the larger kings, live bait is generally best bet; a large blue-runner or thread herring (aka greenback) on a stinger rig is the ticket. Most anglers use No. 6 copper-color wire as leader to prevent cutoffs on the razor-like teeth of the mackerels. One small triple-X strong treble goes through the nostrils, and a second dangles along the sides about 6 inches back. The rig prevents kings chomping off the bait sh tail without getting hooked, as they frequently do otherwise. The baits often can be caught around channel markers on a sabiki rig, a chain of small ies. These channel markers also often hold both kings and Spanish never pass one up if youre hunting sh. The live baits are eased along at walking speed, considerably slower than rigged baits or spoons. Some anglers like to lay down a scent trail by dragging a chum bag chopped bait sh, dogfood and menhaden oil is a popular mix as they troll a circular pattern around a reef or hard bottom area, or simply circle bait sh schools. A favorite trick of tournament anglers is to sh a live bait down the color break line that makes up outside the larger inlets on strong outgoing tides on the outside of this line is clear water, pale green, while on the inside the water is black from the tannin-stained bays. Theres usually a lot of grass oating down the line, and lots of crabs and other edibles in the eddies. The anglers slowly work the live baits down the green side of this line. Either way, once the migration arrives, the action is near certain.

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, April 9, 2014 A Page 7 Section By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Khaliel Spearman is aware of history in the Halifax All-Star Classic. Now hes aware of his place in it. The Rutherford senior set the overall scoring record with 37 points in leading the East to a 120-115 win over the West at the Billy Harrison Field House on Saturday. His achievement was nearly matched by the Wests Austin Carnley, who broke a long-standing team record with 30 points. The outcome also was the highest-scoring game in the 10-year history of the event. Spearman battled East teammate Alex Brown for scoring honors early in the second half and nished the nal 20 minutes with 28 points. He and Brown were instrumental in crafting a 12-2 run in 70 seconds that turned a vepoint lead into a 99-84 East cushion with 8:42 to play. Spearman had 31 points, one more than previous East scoring record-holder Jon Wade, with a little more than 2 minutes to go. East coaches Travis Blanton and Thomas Register called timeout in the nal minutes and informed Spearman that he was nearing Taliah Moores overall mark of 33 set last year. Spearman tied Moore with a jumper and surpassed her with four free throws, the nal two capping the score. Spearman spoke fondly of Wade, who also played at Rutherford, during Media Day on Friday. Spearman joked Well, hes a good Jon Wade, but hes no Khaliel Spearman. No, indeed, as Spearman became the fourth Ram to earn MVP honors since the award was instituted in 2007. With all of these great teammates I have, I didnt expect this, Spearman said. Its a great accomplishment and it feels good to continue the tradition of Rudd (Rutherford) winning that MVP. The East also extended its winning streak to four games and secured the seventh win in the series. The triumph looked to be in doubt for 30 minutes, as Carnley of Paxton hit four of his nine 3-pointers in the rst half and the West trailed by only two points, 53-51. Carnley, who was the West MVP, and Ronnie Baylark, who scored 25 points, helped the West build a 65-55 lead three minutes into the second half. Spearmans 3-pointer 6 minutes later capped an East rally for an 82-80 lead. The East didnt trail again. We gave them a run for their money, said Carnley, who broke Jeremy Paynes West record of 27 points set in the inaugural year of 2005. I just wanted to do my best to help my team, but Im not gonna lie, it feels good to set the scoring record. Spearman agreed that the individual accolade was satisfying and the new basketball he received as MVP also would be a nice addition to his pickup games. But he said there was more to the honor and more to the victory. This is to show people that we put in the work and work hard at Rutherford, Spearman said. And we (the East) didnt want this (streak) to end. Chai Baker scored 15 points and Roderick Copeland 13 for the East, which connected on 19 3-pointers. Denzel Ware added 20 points, Lane Strickland scored 12 and Wyatt Kemper 11 for the West, which held seven rst-half leads.

NEWS HERALD-AREA TEAMS SWEEP HALIFAX ALL-STAR CLASSIC BEASTS OF THE EAST By BRANDON WALKER Halifax Media Services PANAMA CITY In the fall, Malone High School senior Curteeona Brelove will take her talents to Virginia Commonwealth University. On Saturday, however, she put on one last show for local fans at the 10th Halifax All-Star Classic at Gulf Coast State College. Brelove, a 6-foot-3 forward, scored a team-high 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to help the East team earn an 81-73 win over the West in the game that pits seniors from The News Heralds eightcounty area against representatives from Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties. I really like this team a lot, said Brelove, who scored 14 of her 24 points in the rst half. We had good chemistry, played well together. It means a lot to play well today. The victory for the East is the third in 10 years, and rst since 2012. For Chipley coach Kimberly Tuel, the win was satisfying. We had a lot of talent, said Tuel, who led her team to the Class 1A state championship game this season. Any time you get this much talent together, its fun to coach. Choctawhatchee guard Brittany Washington, the Wests Most Valuable Player, led all scorers with 25 points. For the East, 11 players reached the scoring column, led by Breloves 24 and 15 from Sneads guard Tasherica McMillon. The East also enjoyed a 44-29 edge on the glass, an advantage it used to outscore the West 13-5 over the games nal three minutes. I thought their size was a big difference, said Paxton coach Steve Williams, who led his Lady Cats to the 1A state championship over Chipley. Our girls played hard and played together. I really enjoy coming over here to this game and seeing players get to play together that have been opponents all year. Its a great game. The East opened the game on a 9-0 scoring run and the West never fully recovered. The East led throughout, and the closest the West got was three points when Washington connected on a 3-pointer with three minutes left to cut the advantage to 68-65. Brelove and company were too much down the stretch on the way to the eightpoint win. I just wanted to come out and play my game, Brelove said. After that, I just let the game take care of itself.

The art of basket weaving has been an important skill for thousands of years and, someday, the baskets woven here today will be remembered as Greatgreat Grandma made this in 2014, and its still just as beautiful as when she wove it!

SHILTSES WELCOME BABY GIRL Jackson Hospital recognizes medical staff on Doctors Day DR. GENE PROUGH SAYS GOODBYE TO CHIPOLA Many of us can remember being cared for by our parents when we were injured as children. Whether cutting our leg while climbing a tree or swallowing one too many pieces of candy, our parents always came to the rescue with soothing words and a rst aid kit in hand. Since our pets are beloved members of the family, shouldnt we do the same for them? Here are some tips and tricks to help ease your pets pain in case of emergency. Just like for people, there are some basic rst aid supplies for your pet to always have readily available in your home. A good idea is to have a pet rst aid kit so that you can concentrate on what you can do for your pet constructively rather than looking all over the place for something that might work but is less than ideal, said Dr. James Barr, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. However, the most important thing is to have the phone number of your local veterinarian in case of emergency, including what to do after hours. Some items to include in your rst aid kit could be an assortment of bandages, an instant cold pack, gauze and roll pads, medical gloves, triple antibiotic ointment, alcohol and antiseptic wipes, a slip-style leash, lubricating jelly, tongue depressors, and tweezers/forceps. Knowing how to perform basic CPR on your pet and stop external bleeding by applying a pressure wrap are also important skills you should acquire. Two common examples of emergencies in which basic rst aid knowledge can be life saving for your pet include exposure to toxins and excessive external bleeding. If your pet is exposed to a toxin, get the name of the toxin and try to gure out how much they have ingested, and then call your vet to give you further instructions, said Barr. If your pet is experiencing severe blood loss resulting from external bleeding, wrap the wound with a towel or bandage to help stop the bleeding and apply pressure to help slow the loss of blood. Just remember that if being injured is traumatizing for us, imagine how it must be for our pets. In the event of an emergency, it is important to do everything you can to minimize their anxiety. This will not only help prevent further injury for them, but also to you and your family. One must be very careful with injured pets because they are unable to communicate with us and us with them, so they are often afraid, said Barr. That fear is then translated into aggression, and pets can injure even the best meaning bystander because they are in pain. Much like you would to a distraught person, it is best to talk gently to them using comforting words. While rst aid is certainly not a substitute for proper veterinary care, it may be extremely helpful in preventing further injury and easing your pets pain. Keeping these tips in mind can save you a lot of troubles in the long run and even ultimately help to save your pets life.
