By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com Some of Washington Countys brightest stars were shining Tuesday, April 15, as the Washington County Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual banquet to honor local business leaders. Guettler & Guettler Inc. was named Business of the Year for their contributions to both the local economy, and the community itself. Brothers Alfred Guettler and Daniel Guettler began the highway marking company in 1980 and now have 21 employees. As entrepreneurs, they have developed property and added retail businesses to support the local economy, including Washington Square Shopping Center. Both also were instrumental in bringing in Washington Countys rst locally chartered bank, One South Bank, in 2008. From their humble beginnings with a Florida DOT right-of-way clearing and maintenance contract, they evolved into a premier highway striping company serving the Panhandle of Florida, said Chamber President Amy Wiwi in her introduction. These men are old-fashioned entrepreneurs who built their business from the ground up without a government handout ... Faith and Family are the foundation to their success. They avoid the spotlight but have helped many a person or team in time of need.

James Shores, 66, of 2754 Dauphin Road, was found at his familys homestead, at 2842 Johnson Road, after the Washington County Sheriffs Of ce received information from the Alabama Bureau of Investi-gation that a vehicle connected to the Saturday shooting of an Alabama state trooper was registered to Shores. Zachary Taylor Wood, 23, of Hartford, Ala., and Dillon Scott Rafskey, 21, of Enterprise, Ala., were arrested Saturday in connection with that shooting, and are being held in the Genvea County, Ala., jail. Of cers discovered Shores body while performing a welfare check of his property and believe the suspects in the troopers shooting are responsible for Shores death as well, Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock said. Authorities said they will face charges in Washington County for the slaying. Shores came to the farmhouse around 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon to nd (Wood and Rafskey) on the property and a Jeep Grand Cherokee stuck in the yard, Haddock said. He advised the men they needed to leave, and if they needed assistance in leaving, he would call the sheriffs department. Haddock said its believed the suspects were riding dirt roads in the county when they spotted the farmhouse and saw it as a crime of opportunity. Shores was unaware the men had just burglarized the homestead and had loaded stolen items into the Jeep, which had been reported to Alabama law enforcement as being taken without permission by Woods girlfriend the previous Thursday. At Shores continued insistence that they leave, Woods and Rafskey reportedly began to beat him, nally subduing him and binding his wrists and ankles before grabbing a hoe and continuing to beat him on the head and shoulders. The suspects began to ee the scene in Shores 2001 Toyota Camry but returned with a gun from Shores car, shooting him in the head, authorities said. The suspects then traveled to Alabama where State Trooper Marcel Phillips attempted to stop them for speeding on Geneva County Road 57 SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe ruts still are visible where the suspects 1995 Jeep Cherokee became bogged down on Shores Johnson Road property.

The Chipley Police Department stopped a 1999 GMC Yukon in the northwest section of Chipley on Tuesday, March 25. Subsequent to the traf c stop, the driver, Wayne Blake Gates, 22, of Alford, was found to be in possession of a concealed rearm and marijuana. A search of Gates vehicle produced additional drugs inside the vehicle as well. Gates was arrested for the offense after further investigation Thursday, April 17, and transported to the county jail where he was charged with possession of a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of synthetic marijuana with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia (electronic scales).

I feel like they thought they were being stopped for what they had done (in Washington County), Haddock said. Shores himself was a retired law enforcement of cer, having served most of his career as a game warden for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Haddock said while law enforcement of cers know the job risks, Shores manner of death is dif cult for him to reconcile. They wanted to make sure he was dead, he said. And they used whatever was available to do it rst their hands, a garden hoe, and then Shores own gun. Ive been knowing (Shores) my whole life, and as a law enforcement of cer of 36 years, you expect things to happen during your tenure, Haddock said. But to have something happen as you just come by the old farm house where you were raised where you should have refuge I just dont have the words to describe that. An autopsy was performed on Shores Monday, and the WCSO Crime Lab is continuing the investigation with the assistance of the FDLE Crime Lab. Woods and Rafsky are charged with attempted murder of a law enforcement of cer in Alabama and will each be charged in Washington County with grand theft auto, burglary and an open count of murder, authorities said.

JROOTC IS StT At TE BOUND Special to the NewsThis April marks the 11th annual National Donate Life Month, a celebration commemorating those who have given the gift of life through organ, eye and tissue donation. For those whose lives have been saved or healed by a transplant, National Donate Life Month provides a chance to share their story to encourage more people to register as donors. The story of Weldon Bradshaw, a 64-year-old English teacher and track coach, proves that you can never be too old to save a life. In the 11 hour of his chronic and deadly liver disease, he and his family received the greatest news they could hope for; an 84-year-old woman had donated a liver, and Weldons life was saved. Morgan Hughess experience with donation and transplantation happened much sooner in her life. After being born blind in both eyes, she received the gift of sight through corneal transplants when she was just 11 months old. Now, more than ten years later, Morgan reads, rides her bike, plays the clarinet and is the pitcher for her softball team. Without her cornea donors, none of this would be possible. The transplant waiting list is made up of people of all ages, says Jackson Hospital Chief Nursing Ofcer Robin Catt. Likewise, its important to show that people of any age can make a powerful difference in someones life by being a donor. Donation saves and heals lives every day, but it can only happen when someone makes the important decision to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor. You can make that lifesaving difference by registering your decision. There are now 112 million registered donors in the United States, 7,715,957 donors from the state of Florida. Still, the number of people in need of transplants continues to outpace the supply of donated organs. More than 120,000 people are currently awaiting a transplant, 5,273 of the waiting list is from Florida and sadly, an average of 18 patients die every day, because the organ they needed was not donated in time. The solutions to this problem are to continue educating the public about the lifesaving effects of donation and transplantation and encourage them to sign up through their state donor registry. To register to be a donor or for more information visit www.donatelife.net .Special to the NewsSchool will soon be out no more homework or studying for tests, but that doesnt mean your childs education has to stop for the next two and a half months.

There I was, quietly pretending not to be reading the tabloid headlines, when I heard one side of a most perplexing phone conversation: Well, I dont read the paper or listen to the radio station here, but I think the election is on the 22nd ... yeah ... my dad told me to vote for... Really? No disrespect to my own dad, but while I value his opinion, Id rather research candidates and make up my own mind. Though its certainly not perfect, the American elections system is the cornerstone of our democracy. If we all blindly voted for whom our fathers advise, America would have the ultimate good ol boy empire. The importance of our freedom to examine issues and openly debate them shouldnt be taken for granted. We shouldnt get lazy or complacent with our right to be the basis of our government. Rather than blindly voting out of old family loyalty, we should take time to research the candidates. Where do they stand on important issues? If you dont know, ask the candidates themselves. Most are only too happy to tell their political positions. Most of us get our information from of cial sources such as newspapers and news broadcast. As a journalist and Washington and Holmes counties primary source for local news reporting I like this idea. But I also know the importance of doing my own research on candidates before making my decision at the ballot box. If I see a report that Candidate X wants to take my guns away while Candidate Y is standing strong for Constitutional rights, I want to know HOW X is trying to take my right to bear arms away. HOW is Y standing up for those rights? Until you check it out for yourself, its all just propaganda, regardless of which stance you prefer. It is our right, privilege and quite frankly, our duty to question everything. Go ahead and talk politics at the local Hardees, Waf e House or the beauty shop. Thats great! Sharing ideas and viewpoints is part of our small communitys colloquial charm. But take those viewpoints and think for yourself. Again, ask questions. Look up voting records. Attend meetings. Ask the hard questions most try to avoid in the name of politeness. Conscientious voters use logic and fact to support their decision. Men have died so that we may have the privilege of deciding what leaders are best for our county and nation. The votes of the people determine who is placed in of ce, thus in uencing what policies are made. Whether its a local issue or a national election, lets be sure all candidates know were doing our job of holding them accountable.The light New Hope Methodist Church still shinesWednesday, April 23, 2014Last weeks prattle mentioned Martha McKnight having three surviving classmates to keep in touch with since their graduation from Chipley High School in 1937. Lucille Marshall Brackin, who numbers among the faithful ones to attend the Vernon Alumni Monthly Luncheon, in one of two remaining members of the Vernon High School graduating class of 1938. Joining her in this honor is Gertrude Dunn Weaver. Both ladies have passed the ninety-year mark and both are in reasonable good physical health and remain active. Lucille married Edison (Eddie) Brackin, a kinsman of the Prattler on the Brock side of the family. Lucille resides in the community where she was reared. She is still active in New Hope Methodist Church, located at the peak of New Hope Hill a few miles south of Vernon. Todays article is a reprint of an E. W. Carswell story, written by the well known author and journalist, which appeared in The Pensacola NewsJournal on Sunday, June 30, 1963. The accompanying picture is the original old frame, landmark, building housing New Hope Methodist Church. It had been condemned and the participants of the annual Hightower reunion expected a new sanctuary to be awaiting them at the time of their next gathering. HIGHTOWERS DONT NEED A LANDMARK TO FIND THE WAY BACK FOR REUNION. By: E. W. Carswell, News-Journal Bureau. When ve generations of West Floridas Hightowers and their kin gather early next June on Washington Countys New Hope Hill, they may nd its appearance changed. Missing, if present plans are carried out, will be the 75 year-old frame New Hope Methodist Church building. Church of cials plan to replace the church with a new masonry structure. It is to New Hope Church where Hightowers, and Drucilla Hightower, pre-Civil War settlers in the area, return in June each year to renew their ties of kinship. The program is long on visiting, singing, eating and socializing, and short on formality. The formal part of the program, such as electing of cers, hearing a brief inspirational address and congregational singing, takes place in the church. The eating takes place at noon from tables under a long metal-topped shelter on the church grounds. The ladies bring cake, pies and other delicacies. The socializing begins when the rst carload of happy Hightowers arrive at about 9:30 a.m. and ends when the last departs. It includes such activities as renewing cousinly acquaintances, swapping family gossip, exchanging recipes and showing off new babies. A more restrained activity invariably includes visits by individuals and groups to the graves of departed relatives in the church cemetery and sometimes to other cemeteries in the area. Next meeting of the family will be on he second Sunday of next June. The 1963 meeting was held on the third Sunday. Coy Hightower of Vernon will be chairman of the 1964 event with his duties to coordinate planning and direct arrangements. Vice-Chairman is Zebadee Hightower of Panama City and secretary, Mrs. Lucille Brackin of Vernon. Directors are Brown Hightower of Vernon, Buster Daf n of Marianna and Ernest Marshall, Jr. of Vernon. Mrs. Brackin, longtime secretary of the reunion and keeper of the family tree, said that about 250 members of the family were on hand for this years meeting. Mrs. Brackin said her records show that John Troupe and Drucilla Hightower had nine children and 56 grandchildren. She said the great grandchildren total about 200, but Ill have to count them to get the exact gure. She is adding the names of great greatgrandchildren and admits that it is becoming quite a big job. Mrs. Brackin also attends to keeping an up-to-date record of addresses, plus such other pertinent information as births, deaths and unusual activities. Mrs. Brackins records show some members now residing in several states. Most of them remain in West Florida however, with a majority of them in the Washington County home of their pioneer ancestors. Others have long ago established homes in Jackson, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties. Still others commute to the reunion each year from South Florida and from neighboring states. The idea of replacing the frame church, with its sentimental attachments, is being greeted with mixed emotions. But 75 years is old, even for a church building, in this era of change-and many generations have taken other changes in stride. Theyll be back next June! The Hightower Family did return to New Hope Methodist Church in 1964 to nd the totally new and modern concrete block meeting house completed and ready to provide for their comfort. The Miller Reunion, held the Second Saturday in October, is the only family continuing to meet at New Hope Methodist Church. This landmark location, one of the older Methodist congregations in this area, recently survived any changes as the state highway department proceeds to four-lane Highway 79. According to Odell Ward, this burying ground holds the tomb of an Revolutionary War Veteran, Josiah Jones, who served in that war. One mass grave contains the remains of six. A tombstone lists the names of Dan Dykes, father, Clarkie, mother, children; Johnnie B, Evelyn, Billy and Kelly. All perished when a destructive tornado swept through the Ebenezer Baptist Church community on Saturday, January 18, 1936. Spared death were two young cousins, Bruce and Frank McDade. They escaped when the chimney was snatched from the wall, leaving an opening. Odell reports assisting adults in digging the massive grave, using picks and shovels, when he was only twelve years old. This picturesque location, steeped in history and heritage, continues to hold regular worship services as it has done for 126 years. Serving as a beacon and lighthouse to those seeking comfort and solace, continues as the mission of New Hope Methodist Church.PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells National Volunteer WeekDear Editor: Two important anniversaries have been celebrated this year. It was 40 years ago that President Richard Nixon declared the rst National Volunteer Week and it was that same year, 1974, that the rst hospice in America opened its doors in Connecticut. April 6 thru 12 was National Volunteer Week and during this important time of recognition its tting that we honor our nations 400,000 hospice volunteers for the heroic work they do to ensure people with serious illnesses nd comfort, love and respect. At Covenant Hospice more than 2,000 trained volunteers give of themselves to support patients and families during one of lifes most challenging experiences. These dedicated volunteers are helping patients and families live as fully as possible and our community is better because of their service. Covenants slogan, Every Moment is a Memory in the Making, re ects the quality time made possible by the loving support of volunteers. Covenant volunteers spend time visiting with patients, provide emotional support and practical help for caregivers, serve as Ambassadors in our community, raise funds for our nonpro t organization, help in our of ces, provide bereavement support for people who have lost a loved one and more. I encourage others to learn more about Covenant Hospice and invite you to volunteer your time, make a donation, or help someone who needs our care to contact us. Please visit www.covenanthospice.org or call 482-8520 or toll free at 877-817-2191.Donna MeldonVolunteer Services and Community Relations Manager Covenant HospiceLeftist agenda continuedDear Editor, Some time ago I wrote a letter stating there is absolutely a leftist agenda. I contend there is. I read the letter written by Jim Clements of Panama City. He claims Congressman Steve Southerland follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. The Marianna Tea Party meets the third Monday of the month at 6 p.m. at the ag center on Highway 90. Perhaps Mr. Clements would like to enlighten us on the issue. Many complain how small some Social Security checks are. A brief review on the issue will re ect the language in the bill was at some age was to grant on a pittance. The bill was not funded to provide full retirement. In brief the whole Social Security program was and is a ponzi scheme. The scheme is simple everyone pays but many will not live long enough to collect it. Our Representatives in Washington saw t via SSI to give Social Security payments to people who have not paid into it. Congress has frequently browed (stolen) from the fund and simply repaid the fund with an I.O.U. About the only difference between Democrats and Republicans is only the spelling. There is an agenda and income leaves our effort strongly supported by the Leftist in the Federal Government. Note should you elect to work after reaching the age to collect Social Security you ill be penalized. No if a Tea Party supporters want to cut (reduce) SSI payments it is an has been a closely guarded secret. Tea Party members are pro constitution.

While they were having fun in the sun they also worked to restore the shores first line of defense, sand dunes. The organization picked the sea oats in October and then shipped them to South Florida to be harvested for seedlings. They returned to get their hands a little dirty restoring the dunes. Students planted 2,500 seedlings using string as a grid. The blades were planted 18 inches apart in a staggered pattern. The sea oats are imperative to keeping the beaches healthy, as sand dunes are the first line of defense in hurricanes and they provide a home to beach wildlife. Orange Hill Soil and Water & Three Rivers Resource Conservation have sponsored the project for 12 years. Along Panama City Beach and Mexico Beach you can see the results of sea oat restoration. In order to help these students efforts take root, do not step on the sea oats or play in the sand dunes. PHOTOS BY KEVIN SHULL | VHSVernon FFA students aid in planting sea oats along shore

By FRANK SARGEANTSpecial to The News The kingsh 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 signicant 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 kingsh 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 articial 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 feather-duster 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 baitsh 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 baitsh, dogfood and menhaden oil is a popular mix as they troll a circular pattern around a reef or hard bottom area, or simply circle baitsh 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.KING MACKEREL REGULATIONSThe limit on kingsh is two daily, with the size limit 24 inches to the fork. Note that the fork is the center of the tail, not the tips. Fish must remain whole until brought to shore. For more on how and where to catch kings in spring, visit http:// surelurecharters.com or call Capt. Don Dineen at 376-8399.GEARING UP FOR KINGSSchool kings can be handled by skilled anglers with typical inshore gear, a 3000-size spinning reel loaded with 15-pound-test microber and a stout 7-foot rod. The problem is you never know when a smoker is going to crash the party; a 30-pounder can readily spool such a rig, so most anglers gear up a bit, going to 20to 30-pound tackle with conventional spool rigs and heavy boat rods, just in case. Heavy spinning gear also does the job and can handle ber lines to 50 pounds and more. For pier shing, an 8-foot rod is a common choice, mounting a 4/0 reel with 30-pound-test mono or heavier braid. Many anglers use a balloon oat to get their baits out to the sh from piers, particularly when tide or wind is headed seaward. Secure the balloon to your leader rmly so it doesnt oat away on the strike researchers say these balloons often wind up in the stomach of sea turtles looking for a jellysh meal when cast adrift. Whatever the rig, a length of steel leader is essential terminal tackle; kings have razor-like teeth that will instantly shear any sort of mono or uorocarbon leader, so wire is a must. Loop the wire through a small swivel, and tie your running line to the swivel.A DISH FIT FOR A KINGThere are better-eating sh in the sea than king mackerel, but properly cleaned and cooked, they are excellent table fare. My personal favorite is grilled kingsh medallions. Basically, with the body cavity cleaned out, the sh is steaked into slabs about 1.5 inches thick. Use a large, heavy knife to section straight down through the backbone. Remove the skin, and then cut away the tenderloins, which form four almost round medallions of meat around the backbone; with this trim, you get rid of the rib bones and more importantly the red lateral line, which can give any sh a codliver-oil taste. Now you have four chunks of meat each about the size of a silver dollar, from the average 15 pound or larger kingsh. Drizzle a little Teriyaki sauce on them, give them a spray of non-stick cooking oil, and put in a grilling basket, or even better a grilling skillet a Teon-coated skillet drilled with dozens of holes to let grease out, grill heat in. Cook over a very hot re until the llets just begin to brown. Kings are also good slowsmoked over an orange-wood re, or baked in a casserole with Italian-seasoned tomatoes and parmesan cheese in all cases, remove the skin and red line for best taste. About the only way that kings are not tasty is friedthey are naturally oily, and frying intensies that oily taste grilling or baking works better. Kingsh can be lleted as with other sh, and thats the best route for sh smaller than 10 pounds. They can be frozen, but its essential to immerse the llets in water inside sealed plastic bags before putting them in the freezer; otherwise, they will become inedible before long.TO RELEASE A KINGFISHKings dont survive catchand-release well; the species has to keep swimming from birth until death just to breath and when you take them out of the water, the shock and the lack of oxygen quickly kills them. However, since you are only allowed two per day, it makes sense to learn how to release them without fatalities. First, debarb your hooks; that step alone goes a long way toward allowing a quick, injuryfree release; the sh sometimes can be ipped off the hook without even being brought into the boat if a single debarbed hook is used. Secondly, never gaff a sh you intend to release. Even a gaff in the jaw adds greatly to mortality, biologists say; best to grab the sh by the tail, swing it aboard onto a towel, and then get the hooks out with a long-handled hook remover that keeps your hands a safe distance away from those vicious choppers. Third, when you release a king, throw it overboard head down, like a javelin the spearlike dive into the water often gets their motor running and they will swim off, while if you toss them over at-sided, they might simply sink into the depths and die or be eaten by the sharks that are never far away from the schools. Catching school kings is fairly straightforward; most anglers nd the sh by watching for diving birds.

That served as one 17year-old freshmans introduction to college life. That plaque thankfully is long gone, but one is left to wonder if there soon will be a commemorative statue of two kids frolicking in a bathtub. Times have changed, and the most recent story coming out of Mankato that has nothing to do with the Vikings upcoming preseason camp or my rather unspectacular record as an undergraduate strains the con nes of conscience, much less credulity. If there is such a thing as a good lie, certainly there must be screwed-up truth. Brie y, here is the background: Todd Hoffner was the head coach of the Division II football program at Minnesota State, Mankato in 2012, and a successful one with a 34-13 record. He was arrested on the practice eld and charged with child pornography after university staff found images of his naked children on a work-issued cell phone. A judge dismissed the charges three months later, saying the videos depicted only innocent images of children acting playful after a bath. People who backed Hoffner felt the school was overreacting in the wake of the sex abuse scandal at Penn State, and Hoffner maintained the entire incident was ridiculous, his young children merely asking their daddy to take their picture to capture a moment. Despite the charges against Hoffner being dropped, the university suspended him for 20 days, then reassigned him to an administrative role and nally red him last May for undisclosed reasons. Hoffner was hired in January to be the head football coach at Minot State in North Dakota. An arbiter eventually ruled that Hoffner was red unfairly, and that he should be reinstated to his former position at Minnesota State, Mankato. Still with me? Hoffner faced a decision of spurning Minot State, which had been there for him if not in his darkest hour then one perilously close to midnight, or going back to Mankato, which 11 months previously had told him it didnt want him. He chose to return, and was quoted it would help heal the injury. Or maybe the deeper injury was moving to Minot. Somewhat remarkably, the word lawsuit has not been attached to any installment of this story. As of yet. It also should be pointed out that the plaque designating the mass hangings was removed in 1972, and never replaced by one where I ran through the glass door of Stadium Pizza that same year. The current hygienic habits of the Hoffner children likewise have been thankfully ignored.Tiny bubbles can make big waves Sports BeatPat McCannExecutive Sports Editorpmccann@pcnh.com Brown signs with ULA-MonroeVernon High Schools Alex Brown has signed a basketball scholarship with the University of Louisiana at Monroe, a Division 1 school.

VHS weightlifters to compete for state titleFrom staff reportsThe Vernon Yellow Jacket Weightlifting team will travel Friday to Kissimmee for the Class 1A State Championships. Schools from all over the state of Florida will be competing for the trophy. Vernon currently has an enrollment of 400 students and will be competing against teams of more than 1,600 students. Five of Vernons lifters from this years team have quali ed to compete through two qualifying competitions. District champions are automatically quali ed for the state nals. All other lifters must qualify through an at-large process. Ryan Malloy won the District 1 championship in the 139 weight class, JT Padgett won a District championship in the 183 weight class, and Marlon Stephens won the District Championship in the 238 weight class. Brandon Malloy quali ed through at-large in the 169 weight class and through atlarge in the 219 weight class. The state competition scores the top six lifters in each weight class. Currently, JT Padgett leads the state in his class by 30 pounds heading into the state nals with a 640 pound total. Ryan Malloy, only a sophomore, is currently fth in his class. With a great day, Brandon, Darrion and Marlon all have a chance to score points for the Jackets as well. The VHS weightlifting program is the building block for future Vernon weightlifting state championships as well as hopefully state football championships as many of these young men play football at VHS. The Jackets will depart from VHS on Thursday morning and will compete Friday morning. If any one of these young men were to bring home a state championship, it would mark the rst athletic title in Washington County this year. It is an honor to qualify and compete at the FHSAA state weightlifting nals and these young men have represented Vernon and Washington counties very successfully. Please join us in wishing these young men and Vernon High School all the best. SPORTS www.chipleypaper.comWednesday, April 23, 2014 APage 7Section

From the abundance of chocolate candies lining the grocery store aisles to the colorful dresses hung in the childrens departments at the mall, there are many joyous symbols associated with the Easter holiday. Two very popular symbols, both irresistibly adorable and covered in uff, are a chick or bunny on Easter morning. While giving these as gifts may seem like fun ways to celebrate the holiday at the time, it is important to remember that they are still long-term commitments that come with a lot of responsibility. Are you prepared to take on the challenge of caring for your little Easter fur ball once the holiday passes? Baby chicks are available for purchase at most feed supply stores for the low price of $1 to $3. Because of their easy availability and low initial cost, chicks are often impulse Easter purchases that people make without taking into consideration their present and future care requirements. As with all other pets, they too will soon outgrow their cute, babylike phase. An impulse pet is always a bad purchase, said Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. It may look cute in the store, but Easter is gone in a day and then you have an animal to take care of long term. Stickney also explains that while baby chicks are adorable, full-grown chickens might not make the best pets for inexperienced owners, especially those with children. Its hard to interact with a chicken, and roosters can be very aggressive. They also get barbs on their feet that can cause a lot of damage, said Stickney. Rabbits, however, can be considered a good rst pet due to their docile nature and fairly simple care requirements. The good news is that you do not have to walk or train a rabbit, said Stickney. They will need to get some exercise, though, so you have to let them hop around each day. Still, just like with baby chicks, rabbits bring their own set of responsibilities and care requirements that need to be considered before making a purchase. They require a diet consisting mainly of hay and vegetables, a third of their diet to be rabbit feed, and can also tend to be quite messy. Additionally, just like with any other pet, you should have your rabbit spayed/neutered as soon as possible. You really need to get your rabbit spayed or neutered before sexual maturity or they can become aggressive, advises Stickney. Check with your veterinarian, because not all of them spay and neuter rabbits. You should also ask them for any ea preventative or other treatments, as over-thecounter products for dogs and cats can be toxic for rabbits. If these responsibilities seem attainable for your family, and youre willing to make the long-term commitment of pet ownership, a rabbit can be a fun Easter companion. Just remember that while any pet can be a wonderful addition to a family, it is never a good idea to buy a pet on a whim. Be sure you know what youre getting yourself into before bringing one home for your family Easter pictures. Easter BunniesStick to the ones in costume PetET Ta ALK Library HOOURS Community CALLENDAR

Well, neither have I, except for last week. I do not know what was going on last week, all I know is everything went according to plan. My plan, that is. I was on a roll. In a sense, that worries me. Im not accustomed to having my week work out according to my plans. Normally, if I can get 50% of my plans accomplished in a week, I am doing pretty good. Last week was one of those weeks, which may never repeat itself ever again, I am sorry to say. Or, am I sorry? In contrast, the week before it was horrendous. I was ying from Chicago to Orlando as part of my trip home as a business trip. I boarded the plane in Chicago and took my seat at B3. I got all snuggled and strapped in and was prepared for the trip. No sooner had I gotten into this state of affairs, and you know getting into those seats is one of the great challenges that a real man has, somebody came and stood at the aisle looking at me and said in a high pitch grumpy voice, You are sitting in my seat. The emphasis on the word my, indicated to me I was up against someone that I did not want to be up against. Im sorry, madam, I stated as calmly as possible, but this is my seat. I tried to emphasize the word my to get the message across. She stared at me with one of those stares that penetrate the very soul of a persons manhood. Then she waved her ticket at me and said, You are sitting in MY seat. I took out my ticket to wave at her and prove she was wrong. Much to my chagrin, my seat was B13. Do you know what it takes to get unbuckled from a plane seat and extradite yourself out of it? Especially when Ms. Grumpy is staring at you with one of those stares? I went back to B13 and went through the same procedure to get myself situated in the seat for someone half my size. That was last week. This week was different in every respect. I got all my to-dolist accomplished and by early Friday afternoon, I had nothing to do. Nothing to do! Then a thought wrestled my brain to the mat. What if the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage found out I had nished all my work and had nothing to do?While its gratifying to get your work for the week done ahead of schedule, it creates an opportunity for the intrusion of that infamous honey-do-list. This list has no end to it.When you accomplish one item on the honey-do-list, three other items appear automatically. Its virtually impossible to nish everything on that list. It is part of the wifes secret society no man can penetrate. Being on such a good roll in any given week is not the grand thing I thought it was. I am now content to have my desk piled high with un nished work at the end of each week. Since I had a little bit of time on my hands, I read what good old King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, thought along these lines. Whatsoever thy hand ndeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest (Ecclesiastes 9:10). If I do not use my time to the best of my ability, the probabilities are pretty high somebody will intrude and use that time for some other use.The Masters Mondays POPLAR SPRINGS Bethel Baptist Church will host its nal day of The Masters Mondays, A Walk With The Master In The Word, at 7 p.m., April 28.

Guettler & Guettler Inc. was named Business of the Year for their contributions to both the local economy, and the community itself. Brothers Alfred Guettler and Daniel Guettler began the highway marking company in 1980 and now have 21 employees. As entrepreneurs, they have developed property and added retail businesses to support the local economy, including Washington Square Shopping Center. Both also were instrumental in bringing in Washington Countys rst locally chartered bank, One South Bank, in 2008. From their humble beginnings with a Florida DOT right-of-way clearing and maintenance contract, they evolved into a premier highway striping company serving the Panhandle of Florida, said Chamber President Amy Wiwi in her introduction. These men are old-fashioned entrepreneurs who built their business from the ground up without a government handout ... Faith and Family are the foundation to their success.

James Shores, 66, of 2754 Dauphin Road, was found at his familys homestead, at 2842 Johnson Road, after the Washington County Sheriffs Of ce received information from the Alabama Bureau of Investi-gation that a vehicle connected to the Saturday shooting of an Alabama state trooper was registered to Shores. Zachary Taylor Wood, 23, of Hartford, Ala., and Dillon Scott Rafskey, 21, of Enterprise, Ala., were arrested Saturday in connection with that shooting, and are being held in the Genvea County, Ala., jail. Of cers discovered Shores body while performing a welfare check of his property and believe the suspects in the troopers shooting are responsible for Shores death as well, Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock said. Authorities said they will face charges in Washington County for the slaying. Shores came to the farmhouse around 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon to nd (Wood and Rafskey) on the property and a Jeep Grand Cherokee stuck in the yard, Haddock said. He advised the men they needed to leave, and if they needed assistance in leaving, he would call the sheriffs department. Haddock said its believed the suspects were riding dirt roads in the county when they spotted the farmhouse and saw it as a crime of opportunity. Shores was unaware the men had just burglarized the homestead and had loaded stolen items into the Jeep, which had been reported to Alabama law enforcement as being taken without permission by Woods girlfriend the previous Thursday. At Shores continued insistence that they leave, Woods and Rafskey reportedly began to beat him, nally subduing him and binding his wrists and ankles before grabbing a hoe and continuing to beat him on the head and shoulders. The suspects began to ee the scene in Shores 2001 Toyota Camry but returned with a gun from Shores car, shooting him in the head, authorities said. The suspects then traveled to Alabama where State Trooper Marcel Phillips attempted to stop them for speeding on Geneva County Road 57 SPECIAL TO THE NEWS The ruts still are visible where the suspects 1995 Jeep Cherokee became bogged down on Shores Johnson Road property.

The Chipley Police Department stopped a 1999 GMC Yukon in the northwest section of Chipley on Tuesday, March 25. Subsequent to the traf c stop, the driver, Wayne Blake Gates, 22, of Alford, was found to be in possession of a concealed rearm and marijuana. A search of Gates vehicle produced additional drugs inside the vehicle as well. Gates was arrested for the offense after further investigation Thursday, April 17, and transported to the county jail where he was charged with possession of a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of synthetic marijuana with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia (electronic scales).

After a brief pursuit, the suspects stopped the car suddenly and shot Phillips, who was later treated and released. I feel like they thought they were being stopped for what they had done (in Washington County), Haddock said. Shores himself was a retired law enforcement of cer, having served most of his career as a game warden for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Haddock said while law enforcement of cers know the job risks, Shores manner of death is dif cult for him to reconcile. They wanted to make sure he was dead, he said. And they used whatever was available to do it rst their hands, a garden hoe, and then Shores own gun. Ive been knowing (Shores) my whole life, and as a law enforcement of cer of 36 years, you expect things to happen during your tenure, Haddock said. But to have something happen as you just come by the old farm house where you were raised where you should have refuge I just dont have the words to describe that. An autopsy was performed on Shores Monday, and the WCSO Crime Lab is continuing the investigation with the assistance of the FDLE Crime Lab. Woods and Rafsky are charged with attempted murder of a law enforcement of cer in Alabama and will each be charged in Washington County with grand theft auto, burglary and an open count of murder, authorities said.

JROTC IS ST A TE BOUND Special to the News This April marks the 11th annual National Donate Life Month, a celebration com memorating those who have given the gift of life through organ, eye and tissue dona tion. For those whose lives have been saved or healed by a transplant, National Donate Life Month provides a chance to share their story to encourage more people to register as donors. The story of Weldon Bradshaw, a 64-year-old English teacher and track coach, proves that you can never be too old to save a life. In the 11 hour of his chronic and deadly liver disease, he and his family received the greatest news they could hope for; an 84-year-old woman had donated a liver, and Weldons life was saved. Morgan Hughess expe rience with donation and transplantation happened much sooner in her life. Af ter being born blind in both eyes, she received the gift of sight through corneal transplants when she was just 11 months old. Now, more than ten years later, Morgan reads, rides her bike, plays the clarinet and is the pitcher for her softball team. Without her cornea donors, none of this would be possible. The transplant waiting list is made up of people of all ages, says Jackson Hos pital Chief Nursing Ofcer Robin Catt. Likewise, its important to show that peo ple of any age can make a powerful difference in some ones life by being a donor. Donation saves and heals lives every day, but it can only happen when someone makes the important deci sion to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor. You can make that lifesaving dif ference by registering your decision. There are now 112 mil lion registered donors in the United States, 7,715,957 donors from the state of Florida. Still, the number of people in need of trans plants continues to out pace the supply of donated organs. More than 120,000 people are currently await ing a transplant, 5,273 of the waiting list is from Florida and sadly, an average of 18 patients die every day, because the organ they needed was not donated in time. The solutions to this problem are to continue educating the public about the lifesaving effects of do nation and transplantation and encourage them to sign up through their state donor registry. To register to be a donor or for more information visit www.donatelife.net Special to the News School will soon be out no more homework or studying for tests, but that doesnt mean your childs educa tion has to stop for the next two and a half months. Canoeing, swimming, archery, meeting new friends, marine and environmental science can all be found in one place for one week this summer. 4H Camp Timpoochee, lo cated on the bay in Niceville, is just waiting to be explored by your child.

There I was, quietly pretending not to be reading the tabloid headlines, when I heard one side of a most perplexing phone conversation: Well, I dont read the paper or listen to the radio station here, but I think the election is on the 22nd ... yeah ... my dad told me to vote for... Really? No disrespect to my own dad, but while I value his opinion, Id rather research candidates and make up my own mind. Though its certainly not perfect, the American elections system is the cornerstone of our democracy. If we all blindly voted for whom our fathers advise, America would have the ultimate good ol boy empire. The importance of our freedom to examine issues and openly debate them shouldnt be taken for granted. We shouldnt get lazy or complacent with our right to be the basis of our government. Rather than blindly voting out of old family loyalty, we should take time to research the candidates. Where do they stand on important issues? If you dont know, ask the candidates themselves. Most are only too happy to tell their political positions. Most of us get our information from of cial sources such as newspapers and news broadcast. As a journalist and Washington and Holmes counties primary source for local news reporting I like this idea. But I also know the importance of doing my own research on candidates before making my decision at the ballot box. If I see a report that Candidate X wants to take my guns away while Candidate Y is standing strong for Constitutional rights, I want to know HOW X is trying to take my right to bear arms away. HOW is Y standing up for those rights? Until you check it out for yourself, its all just propaganda, regardless of which stance you prefer. It is our right, privilege and quite frankly, our duty to question everything. Go ahead and talk politics at the local Hardees, Waf e House or the beauty shop. Thats great! Sharing ideas and viewpoints is part of our small communitys colloquial charm. But take those viewpoints and think for yourself. Again, ask questions. Look up voting records. Attend meetings. Ask the hard questions most try to avoid in the name of politeness. Conscientious voters use logic and fact to support their decision. Men have died so that we may have the privilege of deciding what leaders are best for our county and nation. The votes of the people determine who is placed in of ce, thus in uencing what policies are made. Whether its a local issue or a national election, lets be sure all candidates know were doing our job of holding them accountable. The light New Hope Methodist Church still shines Wednesday, April 23, 2014 Last weeks prattle mentioned Martha McKnight having three surviving classmates to keep in touch with since their graduation from Chipley High School in 1937. Lucille Marshall Brackin, who numbers among the faithful ones to attend the Vernon Alumni Monthly Luncheon, in one of two remaining members of the Vernon High School graduating class of 1938. Joining her in this honor is Gertrude Dunn Weaver. Both ladies have passed the ninety-year mark and both are in reasonable good physical health and remain active. Lucille married Edison (Eddie) Brackin, a kinsman of the Prattler on the Brock side of the family. Lucille resides in the community where she was reared. She is still active in New Hope Methodist Church, located at the peak of New Hope Hill a few miles south of Vernon. Todays article is a reprint of an E. W. Carswell story, written by the well known author and journalist, which appeared in The Pensacola NewsJournal on Sunday, June 30, 1963. The accompanying picture is the original old frame, landmark, building housing New Hope Methodist Church. It had been condemned and the participants of the annual Hightower reunion expected a new sanctuary to be awaiting them at the time of their next gathering. HIGHTOWERS DONT NEED A LANDMARK TO FIND THE WAY BACK FOR REUNION. By: E. W. Carswell, News-Journal Bureau. When ve generations of West Floridas Hightowers and their kin gather early next June on Washington Countys New Hope Hill, they may nd its appearance changed. Missing, if present plans are carried out, will be the 75 year-old frame New Hope Methodist Church building. Church of cials plan to replace the church with a new masonry structure. It is to New Hope Church where Hightowers, and Drucilla Hightower, pre-Civil War settlers in the area, return in June each year to renew their ties of kinship. The program is long on visiting, singing, eating and socializing, and short on formality. The formal part of the program, such as electing of cers, hearing a brief inspirational address and congregational singing, takes place in the church. The eating takes place at noon from tables under a long metal-topped shelter on the church grounds. The ladies bring cake, pies and other delicacies. The socializing begins when the rst carload of happy Hightowers arrive at about 9:30 a.m. and ends when the last departs. It includes such activities as renewing cousinly acquaintances, swapping family gossip, exchanging recipes and showing off new babies. A more restrained activity invariably includes visits by individuals and groups to the graves of departed relatives in the church cemetery and sometimes to other cemeteries in the area. Next meeting of the family will be on he second Sunday of next June. The 1963 meeting was held on the third Sunday. Coy Hightower of Vernon will be chairman of the 1964 event with his duties to coordinate planning and direct arrangements. Vice-Chairman is Zebadee Hightower of Panama City and secretary, Mrs. Lucille Brackin of Vernon. Directors are Brown Hightower of Vernon, Buster Daf n of Marianna and Ernest Marshall, Jr. of Vernon. Mrs. Brackin, longtime secretary of the reunion and keeper of the family tree, said that about 250 members of the family were on hand for this years meeting. Mrs. Brackin said her records show that John Troupe and Drucilla Hightower had nine children and 56 grandchildren. She said the great grandchildren total about 200, but Ill have to count them to get the exact gure. She is adding the names of great greatgrandchildren and admits that it is becoming quite a big job. Mrs. Brackin also attends to keeping an up-to-date record of addresses, plus such other pertinent information as births, deaths and unusual activities. Mrs. Brackins records show some members now residing in several states. Most of them remain in West Florida however, with a majority of them in the Washington County home of their pioneer ancestors. Others have long ago established homes in Jackson, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties. Still others commute to the reunion each year from South Florida and from neighboring states. The idea of replacing the frame church, with its sentimental attachments, is being greeted with mixed emotions. But 75 years is old, even for a church building, in this era of change-and many generations have taken other changes in stride. Theyll be back next June! The Hightower Family did return to New Hope Methodist Church in 1964 to nd the totally new and modern concrete block meeting house completed and ready to provide for their comfort. The Miller Reunion, held the Second Saturday in October, is the only family continuing to meet at New Hope Methodist Church. This landmark location, one of the older Methodist congregations in this area, recently survived any changes as the state highway department proceeds to four-lane Highway 79. According to Odell Ward, this burying ground holds the tomb of an Revolutionary War Veteran, Josiah Jones, who served in that war. One mass grave contains the remains of six. A tombstone lists the names of Dan Dykes, father, Clarkie, mother, children; Johnnie B, Evelyn, Billy and Kelly. All perished when a destructive tornado swept through the Ebenezer Baptist Church community on Saturday, January 18, 1936. Spared death were two young cousins, Bruce and Frank McDade. They escaped when the chimney was snatched from the wall, leaving an opening. Odell reports assisting adults in digging the massive grave, using picks and shovels, when he was only twelve years old. This picturesque location, steeped in history and heritage, continues to hold regular worship services as it has done for 126 years. Serving as a beacon and lighthouse to those seeking comfort and solace, continues as the mission of New Hope Methodist Church. PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells National Volunteer Week Dear Editor: Two important anniversaries have been celebrated this year. It was 40 years ago that President Richard Nixon declared the rst National Volunteer Week and it was that same year, 1974, that the rst hospice in America opened its doors in Connecticut. April 6 thru 12 was National Volunteer Week and during this important time of recognition its tting that we honor our nations 400,000 hospice volunteers for the heroic work they do to ensure people with serious illnesses nd comfort, love and respect. At Covenant Hospice more than 2,000 trained volunteers give of themselves to support patients and families during one of lifes most challenging experiences. These dedicated volunteers are helping patients and families live as fully as possible and our community is better because of their service. Covenants slogan, Every Moment is a Memory in the Making, re ects the quality time made possible by the loving support of volunteers. Covenant volunteers spend time visiting with patients, provide emotional support and practical help for caregivers, serve as Ambassadors in our community, raise funds for our nonpro t organization, help in our of ces, provide bereavement support for people who have lost a loved one and more. I encourage others to learn more about Covenant Hospice and invite you to volunteer your time, make a donation, or help someone who needs our care to contact us. Please visit www.covenanthospice.org or call 482-8520 or toll free at 877-817-2191. Donna Meldon Volunteer Services and Community Relations Manager Covenant Hospice Leftist agenda continued Dear Editor, Some time ago I wrote a letter stating there is absolutely a leftist agenda. I contend there is. I read the letter written by Jim Clements of Panama City. He claims Congressman Steve Southerland follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. The Marianna Tea Party meets the third Monday of the month at 6 p.m. at the ag center on Highway 90. Perhaps Mr. Clements would like to enlighten us on the issue. Many complain how small some Social Security checks are. A brief review on the issue will re ect the language in the bill was at some age was to grant on a pittance. The bill was not funded to provide full retirement. In brief the whole Social Security program was and is a ponzi scheme. The scheme is simple everyone pays but many will not live long enough to collect it. Our Representatives in Washington saw t via SSI to give Social Security payments to people who have not paid into it. Congress has frequently browed (stolen) from the fund and simply repaid the fund with an I.O.U. About the only difference between Democrats and Republicans is only the spelling. There is an agenda and income leaves our effort strongly supported by the Leftist in the Federal Government. Note should you elect to work after reaching the age to collect Social Security you ill be penalized. No if a Tea Party supporters want to cut (reduce) SSI payments it is an has been a closely guarded secret. Tea Party members are pro constitution. There is no justi cation for Social Security in our constitution. Ralph Boswell Bonifay Letters to the EDITOR NEW HOPE METHODIST CHURCH, 1963 CAROL KENT Editor HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

While they were having fun in the sun they also worked to restore the shores first line of defense, sand dunes. The organization picked the sea oats in October and then shipped them to South Florida to be harvested for seedlings. They returned to get their hands a little dirty restoring the dunes. Students planted 2,500 seedlings using string as a grid. The blades were planted 18 inches apart in a staggered pattern. The sea oats are imperative to keeping the beaches healthy, as sand dunes are the first line of defense in hurricanes and they provide a home to beach wildlife. Orange Hill Soil and Water & Three Rivers Resource Conservation have sponsored the project for 12 years. Along Panama City Beach and Mexico Beach you can see the results of sea oat restoration. In order to help these students efforts take root, do not step on the sea oats or play in the sand dunes. PHOTOS BY KEVIN SHULL | VHS Vernon FFA students aid in planting sea oats along shore

By FRANK SARGEANT Special to The News The kingsh 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 signicant 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 kingsh 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 articial 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 feather-duster 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 baitsh 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 baitsh, dogfood and menhaden oil is a popular mix as they troll a circular pattern around a reef or hard bottom area, or simply circle baitsh 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. KING MACKEREL REGULATIONS The limit on kingsh is two daily, with the size limit 24 inches to the fork. Note that the fork is the center of the tail, not the tips. Fish must remain whole until brought to shore. For more on how and where to catch kings in spring, visit http:// surelurecharters.com or call Capt. Don Dineen at 376-8399. GEARING UP FOR KINGS School kings can be handled by skilled anglers with typical inshore gear, a 3000-size spinning reel loaded with 15-pound-test microber and a stout 7-foot rod. The problem is you never know when a smoker is going to crash the party; a 30-pounder can readily spool such a rig, so most anglers gear up a bit, going to 20to 30-pound tackle with conventional spool rigs and heavy boat rods, just in case. Heavy spinning gear also does the job and can handle ber lines to 50 pounds and more. For pier shing, an 8-foot rod is a common choice, mounting a 4/0 reel with 30-pound-test mono or heavier braid. Many anglers use a balloon oat to get their baits out to the sh from piers, particularly when tide or wind is headed seaward. Secure the balloon to your leader rmly so it doesnt oat away on the strike researchers say these balloons often wind up in the stomach of sea turtles looking for a jellysh meal when cast adrift. Whatever the rig, a length of steel leader is essential terminal tackle; kings have razor-like teeth that will instantly shear any sort of mono or uorocarbon leader, so wire is a must. Loop the wire through a small swivel, and tie your running line to the swivel. A DISH FIT FOR A KING There are better-eating sh in the sea than king mackerel, but properly cleaned and cooked, they are excellent table fare. My personal favorite is grilled kingsh medallions. Basically, with the body cavity cleaned out, the sh is steaked into slabs about 1.5 inches thick. Use a large, heavy knife to section straight down through the backbone. Remove the skin, and then cut away the tenderloins, which form four almost round medallions of meat around the backbone; with this trim, you get rid of the rib bones and more importantly the red lateral line, which can give any sh a codliver-oil taste. Now you have four chunks of meat each about the size of a silver dollar, from the average 15 pound or larger kingsh. Drizzle a little Teriyaki sauce on them, give them a spray of non-stick cooking oil, and put in a grilling basket, or even better a grilling skillet a Teon-coated skillet drilled with dozens of holes to let grease out, grill heat in. Cook over a very hot re until the llets just begin to brown. Kings are also good slowsmoked over an orange-wood re, or baked in a casserole with Italian-seasoned tomatoes and parmesan cheese in all cases, remove the skin and red line for best taste. About the only way that kings are not tasty is friedthey are naturally oily, and frying intensies that oily taste grilling or baking works better. Kingsh can be lleted as with other sh, and thats the best route for sh smaller than 10 pounds. They can be frozen, but its essential to immerse the llets in water inside sealed plastic bags before putting them in the freezer; otherwise, they will become inedible before long. TO RELEASE A KINGFISH Kings dont survive catchand-release well; the species has to keep swimming from birth until death just to breath and when you take them out of the water, the shock and the lack of oxygen quickly kills them. However, since you are only allowed two per day, it makes sense to learn how to release them without fatalities. First, debarb your hooks; that step alone goes a long way toward allowing a quick, injuryfree release; the sh sometimes can be ipped off the hook without even being brought into the boat if a single debarbed hook is used. Secondly, never gaff a sh you intend to release. Even a gaff in the jaw adds greatly to mortality, biologists say; best to grab the sh by the tail, swing it aboard onto a towel, and then get the hooks out with a long-handled hook remover that keeps your hands a safe distance away from those vicious choppers. Third, when you release a king, throw it overboard head down, like a javelin the spearlike dive into the water often gets their motor running and they will swim off, while if you toss them over at-sided, they might simply sink into the depths and die or be eaten by the sharks that are never far away from the schools. Catching school kings is fairly straightforward; most anglers nd the sh by watching for diving birds. These charter boats are docked in Destin.P HOTOS SPECIAL TO T HE N E W S Outdoors A6 | Washington County News Wednesday, April 23, 2014 The king is back in town Silver speedsters due in Panhandle waters this month

THE CAMP AIGN FOR OUR C OMMUNIT Y S UNIVERSIT Y E ndo wment for T omorr o w s J obs Mankato, Minn., once welcomed visitors, including wide-eyed incoming college students, with a plaque upon entering city limits that denoted the site of the largest mass hanging in U.S. history of 38 Sioux Indians on Dec. 16, 1862. That served as one 17year-old freshmans introduction to college life. That plaque thankfully is long gone, but one is left to wonder if there soon will be a commemorative statue of two kids frolicking in a bathtub. Times have changed, and the most recent story coming out of Mankato that has nothing to do with the Vikings upcoming preseason camp or my rather unspectacular record as an undergraduate strains the con nes of conscience, much less credulity. If there is such a thing as a good lie, certainly there must be screwed-up truth. Brie y, here is the background: Todd Hoffner was the head coach of the Division II football program at Minnesota State, Mankato in 2012, and a successful one with a 34-13 record. He was arrested on the practice eld and charged with child pornography after university staff found images of his naked children on a work-issued cell phone. A judge dismissed the charges three months later, saying the videos depicted only innocent images of children acting playful after a bath. People who backed Hoffner felt the school was overreacting in the wake of the sex abuse scandal at Penn State, and Hoffner maintained the entire incident was ridiculous, his young children merely asking their daddy to take their picture to capture a moment. Despite the charges against Hoffner being dropped, the university suspended him for 20 days, then reassigned him to an administrative role and nally red him last May for undisclosed reasons. Hoffner was hired in January to be the head football coach at Minot State in North Dakota. An arbiter eventually ruled that Hoffner was red unfairly, and that he should be reinstated to his former position at Minnesota State, Mankato. Still with me? Hoffner faced a decision of spurning Minot State, which had been there for him if not in his darkest hour then one perilously close to midnight, or going back to Mankato, which 11 months previously had told him it didnt want him. He chose to return, and was quoted it would help heal the injury. Or maybe the deeper injury was moving to Minot. Somewhat remarkably, the word lawsuit has not been attached to any installment of this story. As of yet. It also should be pointed out that the plaque designating the mass hangings was removed in 1972, and never replaced by one where I ran through the glass door of Stadium Pizza that same year. The current hygienic habits of the Hoffner children likewise have been thankfully ignored. Tiny bubbles can make big waves Sports Beat Pat McCann Executive Sports Editor pmccann@pcnh.com Brown signs with ULA-Monroe Vernon High Schools Alex Brown has signed a basketball scholarship with the University of Louisiana at Monroe, a Division 1 school.

VHS weightlifters to compete for state title From staff reports The Vernon Yellow Jacket Weightlifting team will travel Friday to Kissimmee for the Class 1A State Championships. Schools from all over the state of Florida will be competing for the trophy. Vernon currently has an enrollment of 400 students and will be competing against teams of more than 1,600 students. Five of Vernons lifters from this years team have quali ed to compete through two qualifying competitions. District champions are automatically quali ed for the state nals. All other lifters must qualify through an at-large process. Ryan Malloy won the District 1 championship in the 139 weight class, JT Padgett won a District championship in the 183 weight class, and Marlon Stephens won the District Championship in the 238 weight class. Brandon Malloy quali ed through at-large in the 169 weight class and through atlarge in the 219 weight class. The state competition scores the top six lifters in each weight class. Currently, JT Padgett leads the state in his class by 30 pounds heading into the state nals with a 640 pound total. Ryan Malloy, only a sophomore, is currently fth in his class. With a great day, Brandon, Darrion and Marlon all have a chance to score points for the Jackets as well. The VHS weightlifting program is the building block for future Vernon weightlifting state championships as well as hopefully state football championships as many of these young men play football at VHS. The Jackets will depart from VHS on Thursday morning and will compete Friday morning. If any one of these young men were to bring home a state championship, it would mark the rst athletic title in Washington County this year. It is an honor to qualify and compete at the FHSAA state weightlifting nals and these young men have represented Vernon and Washington counties very successfully. Please join us in wishing these young men and Vernon High School all the best. SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, April 23, 2014 A Page 7 Section

From the abundance of chocolate candies lining the grocery store aisles to the colorful dresses hung in the childrens departments at the mall, there are many joyous symbols associated with the Easter holiday. Two very popular symbols, both irresistibly adorable and covered in uff, are a chick or bunny on Easter morning. While giving these as gifts may seem like fun ways to celebrate the holiday at the time, it is important to remember that they are still long-term commitments that come with a lot of responsibility. Are you prepared to take on the challenge of caring for your little Easter fur ball once the holiday passes? Baby chicks are available for purchase at most feed supply stores for the low price of $1 to $3. Because of their easy availability and low initial cost, chicks are often impulse Easter purchases that people make without taking into consideration their present and future care requirements. As with all other pets, they too will soon outgrow their cute, babylike phase. An impulse pet is always a bad purchase, said Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. It may look cute in the store, but Easter is gone in a day and then you have an animal to take care of long term. Stickney also explains that while baby chicks are adorable, full-grown chickens might not make the best pets for inexperienced owners, especially those with children. Its hard to interact with a chicken, and roosters can be very aggressive. They also get barbs on their feet that can cause a lot of damage, said Stickney. Rabbits, however, can be considered a good rst pet due to their docile nature and fairly simple care requirements. The good news is that you do not have to walk or train a rabbit, said Stickney. They will need to get some exercise, though, so you have to let them hop around each day. Still, just like with baby chicks, rabbits bring their own set of responsibilities and care requirements that need to be considered before making a purchase. They require a diet consisting mainly of hay and vegetables, a third of their diet to be rabbit feed, and can also tend to be quite messy. Additionally, just like with any other pet, you should have your rabbit spayed/neutered as soon as possible. You really need to get your rabbit spayed or neutered before sexual maturity or they can become aggressive, advises Stickney. Check with your veterinarian, because not all of them spay and neuter rabbits. You should also ask them for any ea preventative or other treatments, as over-thecounter products for dogs and cats can be toxic for rabbits. If these responsibilities seem attainable for your family, and youre willing to make the long-term commitment of pet ownership, a rabbit can be a fun Easter companion. Just remember that while any pet can be a wonderful addition to a family, it is never a good idea to buy a pet on a whim. Be sure you know what youre getting yourself into before bringing one home for your family Easter pictures. Easter BunniesStick to the ones in costume PET T ALK Library HOURS Community CALENDAR

US 231, Dothan, AL 36301 (334) 677-3318 800-886-3318 Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything went exactly as planned? Well, neither have I, except for last week. I do not know what was going on last week, all I know is everything went according to plan. My plan, that is. I was on a roll. In a sense, that worries me. Im not accustomed to having my week work out according to my plans. Normally, if I can get 50% of my plans accomplished in a week, I am doing pretty good. Last week was one of those weeks, which may never repeat itself ever again, I am sorry to say. Or, am I sorry? In contrast, the week before it was horrendous. I was ying from Chicago to Orlando as part of my trip home as a business trip. I boarded the plane in Chicago and took my seat at B3. I got all snuggled and strapped in and was prepared for the trip. No sooner had I gotten into this state of affairs, and you know getting into those seats is one of the great challenges that a real man has, somebody came and stood at the aisle looking at me and said in a high pitch grumpy voice, You are sitting in my seat. The emphasis on the word my, indicated to me I was up against someone that I did not want to be up against. Im sorry, madam, I stated as calmly as possible, but this is my seat. I tried to emphasize the word my to get the message across. She stared at me with one of those stares that penetrate the very soul of a persons manhood. Then she waved her ticket at me and said, You are sitting in MY seat. I took out my ticket to wave at her and prove she was wrong. Much to my chagrin, my seat was B13. Do you know what it takes to get unbuckled from a plane seat and extradite yourself out of it? Especially when Ms. Grumpy is staring at you with one of those stares? I went back to B13 and went through the same procedure to get myself situated in the seat for someone half my size. That was last week. This week was different in every respect. I got all my to-dolist accomplished and by early Friday afternoon, I had nothing to do. Nothing to do! Then a thought wrestled my brain to the mat. What if the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage found out I had nished all my work and had nothing to do? While its gratifying to get your work for the week done ahead of schedule, it creates an opportunity for the intrusion of that infamous honey-do-list. This list has no end to it. When you accomplish one item on the honey-do-list, three other items appear automatically. Its virtually impossible to nish everything on that list. It is part of the wifes secret society no man can penetrate. Being on such a good roll in any given week is not the grand thing I thought it was. I am now content to have my desk piled high with un nished work at the end of each week. Since I had a little bit of time on my hands, I read what good old King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, thought along these lines. Whatsoever thy hand ndeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest (Ecclesiastes 9:10). If I do not use my time to the best of my ability, the probabilities are pretty high somebody will intrude and use that time for some other use.
