Katie Hertzog of the Florida Paddling Trails Association (FPTA) presented council members with the idea. Many tourists seek nat ural areas and outdoor activities for their vacations, said Hertzog. The state has over 40 designated pad dling trails on various rivers and streams as well as the 1,515 mile Florida Cir cumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail. (FPTA) can help you market your resources to outdoor recreation enthusiasts as a nature-based tourism destination, resulting in local economic stimulus and in creased public awareness of natural Florida. Hertzog said another advantage of the designation is that its looked favor ably upon by agencies from which the TDC may seek grant money for ecotour ism and that she hopes all eight counties that make up the RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee (RWSAC) organization will join. Counties in the RWSAC region are Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington. Washington County meets all the requirements for a community to apply for the Florida Blueway Com munity designation, includ ing those stating it must have proximity to a Florida paddling trail or Blueway and availability of accom modations and restaurants, as well as to other outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking and biking trails, birding, boating, sh ing, beaches or traditional TDC discusses Blueway designation See TDDC A2 uneUNEMployPLOYMentENT DownOWN By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com Longtime City of Vernon em ployee Ronald Bulldog Wood was tapped as the City of Ver nons new Public Works Direc tor, lling the position left vacant following former director, Gerald Wards retirement earlier this year.

Council approved of adding that when someone wants to hold a yard sale on the towns property within the area of the ea market that there will be a $6 fee enforced; that payment will be required upon arrival, deleting the option of waiting until the end of the day to pay for setting up and will be de nied any future usage for any violators who refuse payment; and amended that Caryville Flea Market Supervisor Paron Beeco would be only responsible for money given to him and not money owed. Beeco thanked the council for the addi tional booths added to the ea market and informed them that they will be holding a barbecue plate sale for $5 a plate on May 24, with a tribute to veterans to raise fund for advertising for the next Flea Across Florida.

Some drug court supporters blame the ofce of State Attorney Angela Corey for the drop in referrals. Coreys ofce dismisses the claim. The number of teens admitted to the program dropped from 92 in 2009 to 19 last year. So far this year, the numbers are about the same as in 2013, said Court Administrator Joe Stelma. Successful completion of the program allows teens to get treatment and avoid a criminal record. It is funded with a $1.3 million federal grant that runs through 2016. The city of Jacksonville also contributes $108,000 annually. Stelma said he got a phone call from the Ofce of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention a few weeks ago, alerting him the grant is in danger of being revoked because of the low number of referrals. We dont understand why the numbers are down, Stelma said. I think if we dont see a difference in the next six months, well be in real trouble. Without the grant money, drug court ofcials said the program would have to be scaled back drastically. It can still function, but not at the same level it can with the grant funding, said Teri Roark, director of drug and mental health courts for the 4th Judicial Circuit. The annual funding from the city would not afford an opportunity for many of the needed services such as residential treatment, expanded drug testing and educational/vocational programs so services would be discontinued or ... signicantly reduced, Roark said. Assistant Public Defender Richard Gordon said he doesnt understand why more people arent being referred to the program. Under Florida law, juveniles cant be sent to the program without the consent of prosecutors.The annual funding from the city would not afford an opportunity for many of the needed services such as residential treatment, expanded drug testing and educational/ vocational programs so services would be discontinued or ... signicantly reduced.TT eri R R oark director of drug and mental health courts for the 4th Judicial Circuit

I once asked my granny, Lena Sasser, when she was going to retire. Then in her 80s, she asked: If I did, what would I do then? Granny ran Sassers Bookkeeping, a business my granddaddy, J.D. Sasser, brought to Chipley in 1955. Granny took over the business when Granddaddy passed away in 66, and then it was passed to my uncle, Tommy Sasser, when we lost Granny in the late 90s. Im proud to say Uncle Tommy runs that business to this day in the same location its been since 1962. Theres a certain sense of pride in having that connection to a business that strives to serve, and that service is the reason our longest established businesses are here, long after others have closed their doors. Ask Lyle Young, who runs the day-to-day affairs of Piggly Wiggly, Chipleys oldest business still in operation. His father, Carl Young, opened the business in 1953, and the bag boys are still known locally as an offered amenity rarely found in todays large supermarket chains. Theres something to be said for shopping after a long days work and having someone help take the groceries to your car. The staff of Rogers Insurance will celebrate their 40th anniversary of service to Washington and surrounding counties tomorrow, May 22. To have that much longevity in a rural community, especially in recent economic times is no small feat. Gerald Pee Wee Rogers returned to Chipley after retiring as a Senior Master Sergeant from the U.S. Air Force and opened the doors to the company May 26, 1974. Rogers started the business with little more than determination and the inspiration to serve his community with the same dedication he served his country. Since then, the business that had no clients at the beginning of day one has grown into one of the most respected agencies in our area. His mantra to his community was: Serving you is our most important product. That spirit of service was passed down through the decades not only to his son-in-law and daughter, Ricky and Donna Miller and grandson, Craig Miller but also to his staff. Ricky Miller joined the business in 1984, and he and Donna bought it from Rogers in 1992 when he retired. Craig Miller joined later, in the early 2000s. Perhaps the key to the business longevity is the sense the employee policy has an entire chapter on giving customer service with a personal touch. Personalized service is our specialty, Ricky Miller said. Not only will we shop for the best policy options, but if youre going through a tragedy, its more comforting to speak with someone who knows you and your family on a personal level, rather than some stranger on the phone. Only from a friend who knows and cares for you will you receive that kind of customer service. Congratulations to Rogers Insurance on 40 years of service, and thank you to all our hometown businesses that strive to give their best, even in uncertain economic times. Lets repay their loyalty, generosity and love for the community they serve with some loyalty of our own: Lets strive to keep our shopping as local as possible and invest in our hometown neighbors. Every mom deserves a medal. But military moms those who serve in the armed forces themselves, and those whose children serve are worthy of special honors. As the Mothers Day candy from last weekend is consumed and the wilted owers forgotten, it is worth remembering that some of them continue with very real struggles and that some of them are on foreign shores, in war zones. Some will be stateside, raising their children amid the ever-present uncertainty of potential redeployment. With military bases throughout the Panhandle, like Tyndall Air Force Base and the Naval Surface Warfare Center here in Bay County, for some moms the daily grind theyve returned to is fraught with all the stress of motherhood faced by all in addition to the added duties of being a military mom. Some moms have put their own lives on hold as they struggle to help their military sons and daughters deal with hidden battle wounds and posttraumatic stress disorders. The federal bureaucracy shouldnt make it so hard for them to get that help, but it does.. In Sarasota, the HeraldTribune wrote about a mom whos been ghting for more than a decade to secure bene ts for her son, damaged during his service in Bosnia. After years of struggle, rejections, appeals, intervention from congressmen and impassioned pleas to the Pentagon, she nally is getting somewhere. She only hopes that help arrives in time. Many military mothers received phone calls or Miss you, Mom videos from their kids stationed elsewhere last weekend. Some moms joyously welcomed home their warriors in person. And some shed tears, thinking of the ones who didnt make it back, physically or mentally. According to The Denver Post, the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns saw more than 200,000 women deployed to combat zones. Of women in the U.S. military, more than 40 percent have children. The newspaper, citing a 2011 report from the Womens Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor, said that more than 30,000 single mothers have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. They did so on our behalf. Its tough love and true grit those who serve, those who give them life, and those who bear the sacri ce. Flowers and candy dont begin to cover the debt of gratitude, so lets not let our show of thanks end with the holidays passing.Appreciation for mothers should continueThis is the Prattlers third and nal article on the May 3 visit to the Lew Childre MemorialSteel Guitar Concert staged in the Convention Center of the Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Opp, Alabama. Accompanying me were my brother, Max Wells and granddaughter, Julie Wells. The headline entertainer for the day was one of Country Musics living legends, and star of the Grand Ole Opry since 1956, Stonewall Jackson. He came to the stage to an enthusiastic crowd who were eagerly awaiting the stars performance. Even though approaching 82 years of age, Stonewall Jackson did his well known songs in stellar style. He was obviously in rare form musically and in command of his place on the program while supported by the professional house band. Writers of the past have mentioned his homey approach to his concerts and this was ever present as he performed on the Opp stage. As he outlined his early life and climb to fame at the Grand Ole Opry, he used his down home style of words when he observed that when young folk were courting in his day and time, they did more grumbling then than they did after they marriage. He explained his rst trip to Nashville from the South Georgia farm was on my old pickup truck. He knew that someone was waiting for his visit at the Acuff-Rose Publishing Company. Wesley Rose greeted him and listened to his promotional tapes. He immediately called his friend, The Solemn Old Judge, George D. Hay, at the Grand Ole Opry and sent Stonewall down to see the Judge. After listening to the demos, Stonewall Jackson became the rst and only unknown artist ever signed to the Opry roster, without rst having a recording contract. With his natural singing ability, he immediately became a star. He told of his friendship with Ernest Tubb, who took him under his wing and arranged for his rst round of personal appearances. Then came his Columbia Records which introduced him to whole new listening public. Life To Go, a George Jones composition, became Stonewalls rst #1 chart record in 1959. The next year followed with a classic Waterloo. These were just his rst number one hits, with many more to follow including I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water, A Wound That Time Cant Erase, B. J. The D. J., Why I Am Walking and Dont Be Angry. Waterloo was number one in pop and country. The entertainer stated: I believe I did more performances at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop on the Midnight Jamboree than Ernest did. The term grumbling came up again when he told of his wifes grumbling because he spent too much time in Tootsies, the noted hang-out for performing stars, located just outside of the back door to the Ryman Auditorium. His explanation to his wife was that Tootsies was on his direct walk to the Ernest Tubb Record Shop, which accounted for his presence there. At the concert, he spoke fondly of his acceptance at the Grand Ole Opry so many years ago and of the kind treatment he received from management. He did make one reference to a time when Nashvillians awoke on a Sunday Morning, December 6, 1964 to nd spread across the top of their newspaper in banner type headlines Opry Drops 12 Top Stars. Included in this number was the name Stonewall Jackson. This was ultimately reconciled, but he explained in his folksy manner For a while there, I thought I might have to sic my dog on them. His down home vernacular also came through on the personal liner notes of his rst LP album. The album was titled Stonewall Jackson the Great Old Songs. He was explaining that many of the words to the old songs used on the recording had been passed on by word-ofmouth from generation to generation, with always a few changes here and there. In his light-hearted approach to such matters, the liner notes from Stonewall states But my singing on this record is the same way I sang them to my mule team as a boy while plowing on the Georgia farm. Stonewall Jackson (his real name) was born on November 6, 1932 in Tabor City, N. C. He was the youngest of three children. The father died when as two years old. and the mother moved the family to her brother-inlaws farm near Moultrie, Georgia where she saw opportunities for work as being better. Times were hard, and the family reportedly hitchhiked to South Georgia. After years of hard work on the farm, the young lad altered his birth record and enlisted in the U. S. Army at age 16. This was detected and he was released. He joined the U. S. Navy at age 17. While there, he learned how to pick the guitar and sing. By the time of his discharge in 1954, he had decided that music was to be his career. As the fashionable statement of today tells us the rest is now history. Stonewall and his wife, Juanita, live in a comfortable farm atmosphere in Brentwood, Tennessee, overlooking a nine acre lake name Lake Waterloo. He told the audience in Opp that he and Juanita are raising our granddaughter, now 15. His anecdotes of this experience leaves no doubt that this child is the apple of the eye for the entertainer. Although this travels are curtailed from the former coast to coast and border to border schedules of his early years, more and more of the public is enjoying the unique Stonewall Jackson style and his new albums continue as great sellers. See you all next week, hopefully on a new topic. However, I have enjoyed the past three. HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

The bank came to Chipley as part of its acquisition of the Bank of Bonifay and of fers diverse banking services. The unique feature of the bank is that it is owned by its customers as a mutual association and does not have stockholders, so it prides itself on community support banking practices. The WHTC Foundation Inc., was founded in 1986 to provide nancial assis tance to students attending the Technical Center, and today the school offers some 35 degree and certication programs, as well as providing dual enrollment oppor tunities for high school students to obtain advanced training prior to high school graduation.

The Foundation has endowed funds that are invested in a diverse portfolio, but depends on the fund raising campaign each year for about 2/3rd of its aid funds.

Governed by a Board of 9 Directors and with a Committee of Trustees of 27 that provides oversight and strategic planning, the WHTC Foundation is one of the most active scholarship programs in Washing ton County. While the Foundation needs its annual donors to operate its successful student aid programs, it is also in need of more endowment funds in larger donations.

SPORTS www.chipleypaper.com ASection God to Johnny Manziel: My plan is for you to be the backup quarterback of the Cleveland Browns. To err on the side of accuracy, it should be pointed out that was the message in bold print emanating from Browns headquarters last week. But in keeping with the mantra supplied by the No. 22 pick in the NFL Draft, there are larger forces at work here. That the Browns found it necessary to provide a slanted playing eld at this stage of the process was somewhat curious, however. After all, they did swap their No. 26 and a third-round pick with Philadelphia to move up and get Manziel. All that just to get a backup for Brian Hoyer? Say again? Evidently Cleveland wants to avoid a media circus, also curious as it is the one that set up the trapeze and brought in the elephants. If the Browns didnt want the frenzied attention that Manziel brings with him, then they didnt have to draft him. The team quickly went about limiting media coverage for Saturdays rookie minicamp to regulars from the local Cleveland media and a few national writers, although it still was wrangling with how to avoid a potential crush of national media. In addition, anyone wishing to cover an offseason practice or minicamp must let the team know no later than 48 hours before the event. The Browns want to avoid satellite trucks and entertainment networks broadcasting from team headquarters. There will be no live video of the rookie minicamp. Thats the teams prerogative, and maybe in coming months it will crystallize into a wise decision. More likely the front of ce wants to dictate the harmony of the locker room and prevent veterans and the coaching staff from being trampled by Manziels media entourage. It also is an attempt to bracket the expectations of fans for next season into a somewhat realistic vision. Not that the Browns are returning the money from spiked season ticket sales 2,300 renewals or new purchases within one day of his selection or No. 2 jerseys bearing Manziels name on the back. Just be a good boy Johnny. Be in by 10. Dont take candy from strangers. Make sure you take out the trash. Kaboom! There is no guarantee that Johnny Manziel ever is going to be a star in the NFL, but it cannot be discounted that he brings a star quality to the mix that eludes most athletes in every sport. Like it or not, he has the IT factor. Making a proclamation long and loud that hes nothing more than a backup quarterback is like signing Ashley Judd to star in your movie, and then casting her as the dowager grandmother. Say what you want, but in this culture polarizing sells. Manziel is that, too. Most people have an opinion about him, and they span both ends of the spectrum. This is the most anxiously awaited athlete in Cleveland since some kid named LeBron came over from Akron. Keeping your veteran players happy is one thing. Giving them a better chance to win games quite another. Obviously the Browns believe Manziel can help them win football games somewhere down the line. So then give him a chance to compete to be the man. Right now. This all will go away soon enough, Maybe. Tebowmania seems to nally be losing all the air from its balloon, but that took the better part of four years. The question remains, whose larger plan are the Browns brass adhering to in regard to Johnny Manziel? Sports BeatPat McCannExecutive Sports Editorpmccann@pcnh.comSend in the clowns, er, BrownsSpecial to The NewsYellow Jacket fans will get a sneak peek of the 2014 football season tomorrow, May 22, when the Jackets take the home eld for the rst time at 6 p.m. against Freeport. A team that returns 10 offensive starters from a District Championship team in 2013, looks to make a strong playoff push during the upcoming season. This years squad features Austin Brown, a senior receiver and defensive back who currently has over a dozen Division 1 scholarship offers from teams such as the University of Wisconsin, University of South Florida and Southern Mississippi University. With Tristan Porter returning at quarterback, the entire offensive line and back eld in place, and eight starters from last years terri c defense back intact, this hopes to be a great season for the Jackets. These Jackets have spent every day since January preparing themselves, through the off season workouts, for this upcoming season, coach Bobby Johns said. Thursday night will cap off a solid spring and give everyone a preview of what to expect in 2014. Freeport is coached by longtime coaching veteran Jim Anderson and will present a tremendous challenge for the Jackets. It will be imperative for the Jackets to play stellar defense until the new offensive scheme takes shape. Johns encourages the public to show their support. Fans will hopefully see a new and exciting look for this group of Jackets, Johns said. A hometown crowd is needed to support their efforts. Please come see the 2014 Vernon Yellow Jackets at the Jackets Nest. Game admission is $5.Special to The NewsChipola College cross country runner Natalya Miller of Wewahitchka has signed to run for the University of Montevallo in Alabama. Miller will run cross country at Montevallo and also will join the track team to compete in middle and long distance events. Miller holds the Chipola school record of 19:52 at the 5K distance. She also has a personal best of 19:40 in an open race. She nished second overall in a eld of 30 at the Darton College meet in 2012 and nished third in 2013. Miller nished among the top 10 percent of runners in all meets during her two-year career at Chipola.

NATALYA MILLERMiller signs to run at MontevalloVernon to host Freeport Page 7 Wednesday, May 21, 2014Staff ReportsFORT MYERS Chipley little resembled a baseball team playing in its rst state semi nal. Seven of the Tigers eight runs through two innings were scored with two outs, and Chipley cruised to an 11-1, ve-inning win over Lafayette in the Class 1A state semis at JetBlue Park on Monday morning. Chipley (22-7) will play Williston, a 4-0 winner over Paxton on Monday, in the state championship game tonight at 6:35 p.m. CDT. The Tigers are in the midst of their rst-ever appearance in the state Final Four. The Tigers broke through with seven runs in the rst inning, six of them with two outs, to give pitcher Daniel Floyd more than enough support to make quick work of Lafayette. D.J. Oliver led off the game with a double, moved to third on a sacri ce bunt and scored on an error to give Chipley a 1-0 lead. Andrew King contributed with a two-out, two-run double, and Nolan Spencers RBI double increased the Tigers advantage to 4-0. Grant Rowell added a run-scoring single, and Oliver provided an RBI double in his second at-bat of the inning. Rowell scored on a wild pitch to cap the sevenrun outburst. Our approach at the plate in the rst inning was unbelievable, Chipley coach Andy Compton said. It was just one of them deals. Our guys were just locked in. We hit it hard. Compton noted that Lafayette (17-8) rallied from a three-run de cit to eliminate defending state champion Trenton in the regional nals. The Hornets scored their lone run in the third to trim their de cit to 8-1, but Chipley didnt give Lafayette much hope of a comeback as the Tigers tacked on individual runs in the bottom halves of the third, fourth and fth innings, respectively. We kept the pressure on them the whole game, Compton said. Oliver was 3 for 4 with three doubles from the leadoff spot. Compton said Oliver transitioned into that slot in the batting order earlier this season and is a natural t for that role because of his ability on the base paths. If he gets on, especially leading off the game, we have a good chance to score, Compton said of Oliver, who will play collegiately at Lawson State in Birmingham, Ala., next year. Hell steal a base, or we can bunt him over and hell steal third. Hes a good base runner who sets the table for everybody else. Floyd allowed four hits in ve innings pitched, and he struck out two and walked three. He threw only 60 pitches, and Compton said he wouldnt rule out Floyd making an appearance in todays title game. Compton said either Jordan Finch or Shelby Savel would start on the mound. Floyd held the Hornets top two hitters, Noah Leake (.368 average) and Micah Byrd (.358), to a combined 0-for-5 performance. Lafayette batted 4 for 18 as a team. He went out there and threw strikes, Compton said. They had some quality hitters in the lineup, but he made them put it in play, and they hit it at us. King was 2 for 2, and his two-out double in the second resulted in his third RBI and an 8-0 cushion. Floyd and Rowell each had two hits for Chipley. Byrd, the Hornets starting pitcher, allowed nine runs (eight unearned), walked four and threw 79 pitches in three innings of work. Chipley rapped out 12 hits in 24 at-bats in the game.

By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland and chal lenger Gwen Graham kicked off grass-roots campaigns Saturday with calls for help in one of the most hotly con tested congressional races in the country this year. The Women for Souther land Coalition turned out in the morning with about 100 people for a brunch on the roof of the Gulf Coast State College Advanced Technol ogy Center. Graham and about 60 supporters celebrated the opening of her Panama City campaign headquar ters on Jenks Avenue in the afternoon. Were going to need all of your support to elect Gwen to Congress and bring an independent voice back to north Florida, said Julia Woodward, Grahams cam paign manager. Graham and Southerland brought friends to sound a call to action. Former Congressman J.R. Middlemas described Graham, who has never run for political ofce, as smart, poised and compassionate, with a knack for building consensus. Rep. Kristi Noem, RS.D., said Southerland was a family man and an advocate who supports women, and will help the middle class by opposing industry regula tions that will force energy and food producers to pass on their additional costs to consumers. Graham spoke out against tax breaks for the wealthy at the expense of the middle class, and court ed women with her sup port for equal pay for equal work. First and foremost, we need to get our nancial house in order, she said. Grahams remarks were brief and general. Souther land and Noem, on the oth er hand, spent more than an hour detailing how people can support Southerland, including organized letterwriting and social media campaigns. Southerland said his op ponents are organized and already are campaigning against him in both areas. If you go to my Face book page they are beating the tar out of me, Souther land said. It would be nice to have some friends. Southerland played up his everyman appeal and painted Graham as an outsider. National Democratic groups see him as vulnera ble, which Southerland has embraced. If youre not taking ak youre not over the target, Southerland said. Were over the target. He said he expects to spend $2.5 million on this campaign compared to $1.8 million in 2012 to fend off attacks from out side groups who hope to destroy the Steve Souther land you know. This district will see the darnedest congres sional race ever seen, he predicted. Southerland and Gra ham stressed the impor tance of Bay County to their success in the November election. Graham is the daughter of Bob Graham, the former governor and senator. Al though she is a Democrat, she said she is a moderate who would eschew parti sanship in favor of reason able solutions. She recalled childhood days spent play ing with Middlemas chil dren in Bay County and spoke of her familys roots in North Florida. She said she was not re cruited to run for Souther lands seat, and she dinged him as an insider in a dys functional Congress whose support of the government shutdown was disastrous. This is Graham coun try. It is, Graham said. Its Graham country. Its the part of Florida that knows my family, that knows what we stand for.

Katie Hertzog of the Florida Paddling Trails Association (FPTA) presented council members with the idea. “Many tourists seek nat ural areas and outdoor ac tivities for their vacations,” said Hertzog. “The state has over 40 designated pad dling trails on various riv ers and streams as well as the 1,515 mile Florida Cir cumnavigational Saltwa ter Paddling Trail. (FPTA) can help you market your resources to outdoor rec reation enthusiasts as a nature-based tourism des tination, resulting in local economic stimulus and in creased public awareness of natural Florida.” Hertzog said another advantage of the designa tion is that it’s looked favor ably upon by agencies from which the TDC may seek grant money for ecotour ism and that she hopes all eight counties that make up the RiverWay South Apala chicola Choctawhatchee (RWSAC) organization will join. Counties in the RWSAC region are Cal houn, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Lib erty and Washington.

Some drug court supporters blame the ofce of State Attorney Angela Corey for the drop in referrals. Corey’s ofce dismisses the claim. The number of teens admitted to the program dropped from 92 in 2009 to 19 last year. So far this year, the numbers are about the same as in 2013, said Court Administrator Joe Stelma. Successful completion of the program allows teens to get treatment and avoid a criminal record. It is funded with a $1.3 million federal grant that runs through 2016. The city of Jacksonville also con tributes $108,000 annually. Stelma said he got a phone call from the Ofce of Juvenile Justice and De linquency Prevention a few weeks ago, alerting him the grant is in danger of be ing revoked because of the low number of referrals. “We don’t understand why the num bers are down,” Stelma said. “I think if we don’t see a difference in the next six months, we’ll be in real trouble.” Without the grant money, drug court ofcials said the program would have to be scaled back drastically. “It can still function, but not at the same level it can with the grant funding,” said Teri Roark, director of drug and mental health courts for the 4th Judicial Circuit. “The annual funding from the city would not afford an opportunity for many of the needed services such as residen tial treatment, expanded drug testing and educational/vocational programs so services would be discontinued or ... sig nicantly reduced,” Roark said. Assistant Public Defender Richard Gordon said he doesn’t understand why more people aren’t being referred to the program. Under Florida law, juveniles can’t be sent to the program without the consent of prosecutors. “The annual funding from the city would not afford an opportunity for many of the needed services such as residential treatment, expanded drug testing and educational/ vocational programs so services would be discontinued or ... signicantly reduced.”TT eri R R oark director of drug and mental health courts for the 4th Judicial Circuit

I once asked my granny, Lena Sasser, when she was going to retire. Then in her 80s, she asked: “If I did, what would I do then?” Granny ran Sasser’s Bookkeeping, a business my granddaddy, J.D. Sasser, brought to Chipley in 1955. Granny took over the business when Granddaddy passed away in ‘66, and then it was passed to my uncle, Tommy Sasser, when we lost Granny in the late 90s. I’m proud to say Uncle Tommy runs that business to this day in the same location it’s been since 1962. There’s a certain sense of pride in having that connection to a business that strives to serve, and that service is the reason our longest established businesses are here, long after others have closed their doors. Ask Lyle Young, who runs the day-to-day affairs of Piggly Wiggly, Chipley’s oldest business still in operation. His father, Carl Young, opened the business in 1953, and the “bag boys” are still known locally as an offered amenity rarely found in today’s large supermarket chains. There’s something to be said for shopping after a long day’s work and having someone help take the groceries to your car. The staff of Rogers Insurance will celebrate their 40th anniversary of service to Washington and surrounding counties tomorrow, May 22. To have that much longevity in a rural community, especially in recent economic times is no small feat. Gerald “Pee Wee” Rogers returned to Chipley after retiring as a Senior Master Sergeant from the U.S. Air Force and opened the doors to the company May 26, 1974. Rogers started the business with little more than determination and the inspiration to serve his community with the same dedication he served his country. Since then, the business that had no clients at the beginning of day one has grown into one of the most respected agencies in our area. His mantra to his community was: “Serving you is our most important product.” That spirit of service was passed down through the decades not only to his son-in-law and daughter, Ricky and Donna Miller and grandson, Craig Miller but also to his staff. Ricky Miller joined the business in 1984, and he and Donna bought it from Rogers in 1992 when he retired. Craig Miller joined later, in the early 2000s. Perhaps the key to the business’ longevity is the sense the employee policy has an entire chapter on giving customer service with a personal touch. “Personalized service is our specialty,” Ricky Miller said. “Not only will we shop for the best policy options, but if you’re going through a tragedy, it’s more comforting to speak with someone who knows you and your family on a personal level, rather than some stranger on the phone.” Only from a friend who knows and cares for you will you receive that kind of customer service. Congratulations to Rogers Insurance on 40 years of service, and thank you to all our hometown businesses that strive to give their best, even in uncertain economic times. Let’s repay their loyalty, generosity and love for the community they serve with some loyalty of our own: Let’s strive to keep our shopping as local as possible and invest in our hometown neighbors. Every mom deserves a medal. But military moms — those who serve in the armed forces themselves, and those whose children serve — are worthy of special honors. As the Mother’s Day candy from last weekend is consumed and the wilted owers forgotten, it is worth remembering that some of them continue with very real struggles and that some of them are on foreign shores, in war zones. Some will be stateside, raising their children amid the ever-present uncertainty of potential redeployment. With military bases throughout the Panhandle, like Tyndall Air Force Base and the Naval Surface Warfare Center here in Bay County, for some moms the “daily grind” they’ve returned to is fraught with all the stress of motherhood faced by all in addition to the added duties of being a military mom. Some moms have put their own lives on hold as they struggle to help their military sons and daughters deal with hidden battle wounds and posttraumatic stress disorders. The federal bureaucracy shouldn’t make it so hard for them to get that help, but it does.. In Sarasota, the HeraldTribune wrote about a mom who’s been ghting for more than a decade to secure bene ts for her son, damaged during his service in Bosnia. After years of struggle, rejections, appeals, intervention from congressmen and impassioned pleas to the Pentagon, she nally is getting somewhere. She only hopes that help arrives in time. Many military mothers received phone calls or “Miss you, Mom” videos from their kids stationed elsewhere last weekend. Some moms joyously welcomed home their warriors in person. And some shed tears, thinking of the ones who didn’t make it back, physically or mentally. According to The Denver Post, the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns saw more than 200,000 women deployed to combat zones. Of women in the U.S. military, more than 40 percent have children. The newspaper, citing a 2011 report from the Women’s Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor, said that “more than 30,000 single mothers have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.” They did so on our behalf. It’s tough love and true grit — those who serve, those who give them life, and those who bear the sacri ce. Flowers and candy don’t begin to cover the debt of gratitude, so let’s not let our show of thanks end with the holiday’s passing. Appreciation for mothers should continue This is the Prattler’s third and nal article on the May 3 visit to the Lew Childre MemorialSteel Guitar Concert staged in the Convention Center of the Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Opp, Alabama. Accompanying me were my brother, Max Wells and granddaughter, Julie Wells. The headline entertainer for the day was one of Country Music’s living legends, and star of the Grand Ole Opry since 1956, Stonewall Jackson. He came to the stage to an enthusiastic crowd who were eagerly awaiting the star’s performance. Even though approaching 82 years of age, Stonewall Jackson did his well known songs in stellar style. He was obviously in rare form musically and in command of his place on the program while supported by the professional house band. Writers of the past have mentioned his “homey” approach to his concerts and this was ever present as he performed on the Opp stage. As he outlined his early life and climb to fame at the Grand Ole Opry, he used his down home style of words when he observed that when young folk were courting in his day and time, “they did more grumbling then than they did after they marriage”. He explained his rst trip to Nashville from the South Georgia farm was “on my old pickup truck”. He knew that someone was waiting for his visit at the Acuff-Rose Publishing Company. Wesley Rose greeted him and listened to his promotional tapes. He immediately called his friend, “The Solemn Old Judge”, George D. Hay, at the Grand Ole Opry and sent Stonewall down to see the Judge. After listening to the “demos”, Stonewall Jackson became the rst and only unknown artist ever signed to the Opry roster, without rst having a recording contract. With his natural singing ability, he immediately became a star. He told of his friendship with Ernest Tubb, who took him under his wing and arranged for his rst round of personal appearances. Then came his Columbia Records which introduced him to whole new listening public. “Life To Go”, a George Jones composition, became Stonewall’s rst #1 chart record in 1959. The next year followed with a classic “Waterloo”. These were just his rst number one hits, with many more to follow including “I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water”, “A Wound That Time Can’t Erase”, “B. J. The D. J.”, “Why I Am Walking” and “Don’t Be Angry”. “Waterloo” was number one in pop and country. The entertainer stated: “I believe I did more performances at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop on the “Midnight Jamboree” than Ernest did”. The term “grumbling” came up again when he told of his wife’s “grumbling” because he spent too much time in “Tootsie’s”, the noted hang-out for performing stars, located just outside of the back door to the Ryman Auditorium. His explanation to his wife was that “Tootsie’s” was on his direct walk to the Ernest Tubb Record Shop, which accounted for his presence there. At the concert, he spoke fondly of his acceptance at the Grand Ole Opry so many years ago and of the kind treatment he received from management. He did make one reference to a time when Nashvillians awoke on a Sunday Morning, December 6, 1964 to nd spread across the top of their newspaper in banner type headlines “Opry Drops 12 Top Stars”. Included in this number was the name Stonewall Jackson. This was ultimately reconciled, but he explained in his folksy manner “For a while there, I thought I might have to sic my dog on them”. His down home vernacular also came through on the personal liner notes of his rst LP album. The album was titled “Stonewall Jackson the Great Old Songs”. He was explaining that many of the words to the old songs used on the recording had been passed on by word-ofmouth from generation to generation, with always a few changes here and there. In his light-hearted approach to such matters, the liner notes from Stonewall states “But my singing on this record is the same way I sang them to my mule team as a boy while plowing on the Georgia farm”. Stonewall Jackson (his real name) was born on November 6, 1932 in Tabor City, N. C. He was the youngest of three children. The father died when as two years old. and the mother moved the family to her brother-inlaw’s farm near Moultrie, Georgia where she saw opportunities for work as being better. Times were hard, and the family reportedly hitchhiked to South Georgia. After years of hard work on the farm, the young lad altered his birth record and enlisted in the U. S. Army at age 16. This was detected and he was released. He joined the U. S. Navy at age 17. While there, he learned how to pick the guitar and sing. By the time of his discharge in 1954, he had decided that music was to be his career. As the fashionable statement of today tells us “the rest is now history”. Stonewall and his wife, Juanita, live in a comfortable farm atmosphere in Brentwood, Tennessee, overlooking a nine acre lake name “Lake Waterloo”. He told the audience in Opp that he and Juanita are “raising our granddaughter, now 15”. His anecdotes of this experience leaves no doubt that this child is the apple of the eye for the entertainer. Although this travels are curtailed from the former “coast to coast” and “border to border” schedules of his early years, more and more of the public is enjoying the unique Stonewall Jackson style and his new albums continue as great sellers. See you all next week, hopefully on a new topic. However, I have enjoyed the past three. HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY? Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

Earlier in May, the WHTC Founda tion held the annual Golf Tournament at Sunny Hills Golf & Country Club, and the scal year will end on June 30. First Federal Bank of Florida was founded in 1962 in Live Oak, and today has 19 branches focused on being community banks. The bank came to Chipley as part of its acquisition of the Bank of Bonifay and of fers diverse banking services. The unique feature of the bank is that it is owned by its customers as a mutual association and does not have stockholders, so it prides itself on community support banking practices. The WHTC Foundation Inc., was founded in 1986 to provide nancial assis tance to students attending the Technical Center, and today the school offers some 35 degree and certication programs, as well as providing dual enrollment oppor tunities for high school students to obtain advanced training prior to high school graduation. On May 12, the school gradu ated 342 students. During the past ve years, the WHTC Foundation has provided nancial as sistance to 229 students that totals over $165,000. The Foundation has endowed funds that are invested in a diverse portfolio, but depends on the fund raising campaign each year for about 2/3rd of its aid funds. As a IRS Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations to the WHTC Foundation are tax deductible under fed eral income tax regulations for most tax payers. Governed by a Board of 9 Directors and with a Committee of Trustees of 27 that provides oversight and strategic planning, the WHTC Foundation is one of the most active scholarship programs in Washing ton County. While the Foundation needs its annual donors to operate its successful student aid programs, it is also in need of more endowment funds in larger donations.

To err on the side of accuracy, it should be pointed out that was the message in bold print emanating from Browns’ headquarters last week. But in keeping with the mantra supplied by the No. 22 pick in the NFL Draft, there are larger forces at work here. That the Browns found it necessary to provide a slanted playing eld at this stage of the process was somewhat curious, however. After all, they did swap their No. 26 and a third-round pick with Philadelphia to move up and get Manziel. All that just to get a backup for Brian Hoyer? Say again? Evidently Cleveland wants to avoid a media circus, also curious as it is the one that set up the trapeze and brought in the elephants. If the Browns didn’t want the frenzied attention that Manziel brings with him, then they didn’t have to draft him. The team quickly went about limiting media coverage for Saturday’s rookie minicamp to regulars from the local Cleveland media and a few national writers, although it still was wrangling with how to avoid a potential crush of national media. In addition, anyone wishing to cover an offseason practice or minicamp must let the team know no later than 48 hours before the event. The Browns want to avoid satellite trucks and entertainment networks broadcasting from team headquarters. There will be no live video of the rookie minicamp. That’s the team’s prerogative, and maybe in coming months it will crystallize into a wise decision. More likely the front of ce wants to dictate the harmony of the locker room and prevent veterans and the coaching staff from being trampled by Manziel’s media entourage. It also is an attempt to bracket the expectations of fans for next season into a somewhat realistic vision. Not that the Browns are returning the money from spiked season ticket sales — 2,300 renewals or new purchases within one day of his selection — or No. 2 jerseys bearing Manziel’s name on the back. Just be a good boy Johnny. Be in by 10. Don’t take candy from strangers. Make sure you take out the trash. Kaboom! There is no guarantee that Johnny Manziel ever is going to be a star in the NFL, but it cannot be discounted that he brings a star quality to the mix that eludes most athletes in every sport. Like it or not, he has the IT factor. Making a proclamation long and loud that he’s nothing more than a backup quarterback is like signing Ashley Judd to star in your movie, and then casting her as the dowager grandmother. Say what you want, but in this culture polarizing sells. Manziel is that, too. Most people have an opinion about him, and they span both ends of the spectrum. This is the most anxiously awaited athlete in Cleveland since some kid named LeBron came over from Akron. Keeping your veteran players happy is one thing. Giving them a better chance to win games quite another. Obviously the Browns believe Manziel can help them win football games somewhere down the line. So then give him a chance to compete to be the man. Right now. This all will go away soon enough, Maybe. Tebowmania seems to nally be losing all the air from its balloon, but that took the better part of four years. The question remains, whose larger plan are the Browns’ brass adhering to in regard to Johnny Manziel? Sports Beat Pat McCann Executive Sports Editor pmccann@pcnh.com Send in the clowns, er, Browns Special to The News Yellow Jacket fans will get a sneak peek of the 2014 football season tomorrow, May 22, when the Jackets take the home eld for the rst time at 6 p.m. against Freeport. A team that returns 10 offensive starters from a District Championship team in 2013, looks to make a strong playoff push during the upcoming season. This year’s squad features Austin Brown, a senior receiver and defensive back who currently has over a dozen Division 1 scholarship offers from teams such as the University of Wisconsin, University of South Florida and Southern Mississippi University. With Tristan Porter returning at quarterback, the entire offensive line and back eld in place, and eight starters from last year’s terri c defense back intact, this hopes to be a great season for the Jackets. “These Jackets have spent every day since January preparing themselves, through the off season workouts, for this upcoming season,” coach Bobby Johns said. “Thursday night will cap off a solid spring and give everyone a preview of what to expect in 2014.” Freeport is coached by longtime coaching veteran Jim Anderson and will present a tremendous challenge for the Jackets. It will be imperative for the Jackets to play stellar defense until the new offensive scheme takes shape. Johns encourages the public to show their support. “Fans will hopefully see a new and exciting look for this group of Jackets,” Johns said. “A ‘hometown crowd’ is needed to support their efforts. Please come see the 2014 Vernon Yellow Jackets at the ‘Jacket’s Nest’.” Game admission is $5. Special to The News Chipola College cross country runner Natalya Miller of Wewahitchka has signed to run for the University of Montevallo in Alabama. Miller will run cross country at Montevallo and also will join the track team to compete in middle and long distance events. Miller holds the Chipola school record of 19:52 at the 5K distance. She also has a personal best of 19:40 in an open race. She nished second overall in a eld of 30 at the Darton College meet in 2012 and nished third in 2013. Miller nished among the top 10 percent of runners in all meets during her two-year career at Chipola. She led the Chipola team in the school’s rst-ever appearance in the NJCAA Division I National Championship in 2012. Miller said, “I’d like to thank God for giving me the will to run, and my running partner Cedric Gillette for pushing me to get better. I also want to thank Coach Rance Massengill for giving me the opportunity to run at Chipola and all of my teammates for helping me move on to the next level.” “Natalya brought passion to the sport at a time when we needed to take the program to the next level. She helped push the other girls, and her performance raises the bar for the type of runner we’re looking to recruit,” Head Coach Rance Massengill said. Miller is planning to major in exercise science. She is the daughter of Karen and John Curry of Wewahitchka. “We’re very proud of our women’s cross country program. The team has improved each year since its inception in 2007. Cross country offers signi cant participation opportunities for female athletes in our area,” Chipola Athletic Director Dr. Steve Givens said. Chipola offers tuition scholarships for women who compete in the program. For information, call coach Massengill at 718-2440. NATALYA MILLER Miller signs to run at Montevallo Vernon to host Freeport Page 7 Wednesday, May 21, 2014 Staff Reports FORT MYERS — Chipley little resembled a baseball team playing in its rst state semi nal. Seven of the Tigers’ eight runs through two innings were scored with two outs, and Chipley cruised to an 11-1, ve-inning win over Lafayette in the Class 1A state semis at JetBlue Park on Monday morning. Chipley (22-7) will play Williston, a 4-0 winner over Paxton on Monday, in the state championship game tonight at 6:35 p.m. CDT. The Tigers are in the midst of their rst-ever appearance in the state Final Four. The Tigers broke through with seven runs in the rst inning, six of them with two outs, to give pitcher Daniel Floyd more than enough support to make quick work of Lafayette. D.J. Oliver led off the game with a double, moved to third on a sacri ce bunt and scored on an error to give Chipley a 1-0 lead. Andrew King contributed with a two-out, two-run double, and Nolan Spencer’s RBI double increased the Tigers’ advantage to 4-0. Grant Rowell added a run-scoring single, and Oliver provided an RBI double in his second at-bat of the inning. Rowell scored on a wild pitch to cap the sevenrun outburst. “Our approach at the plate in the rst inning was unbelievable,” Chipley coach Andy Compton said. “It was just one of them deals. Our guys were just locked in. We hit it hard.” Compton noted that Lafayette (17-8) rallied from a three-run de cit to eliminate defending state champion Trenton in the regional nals. The Hornets scored their lone run in the third to trim their de cit to 8-1, but Chipley didn’t give Lafayette much hope of a comeback as the Tigers tacked on individual runs in the bottom halves of the third, fourth and fth innings, respectively. “We kept the pressure on them the whole game,” Compton said. Oliver was 3 for 4 with three doubles from the leadoff spot. Compton said Oliver transitioned into that slot in the batting order earlier this season and is a natural t for that role because of his ability on the base paths. “If he gets on, especially leading off the game, we have a good chance to score,” Compton said of Oliver, who will play collegiately at Lawson State in Birmingham, Ala., next year. “He’ll steal a base, or we can bunt him over and he’ll steal third. He’s a good base runner who sets the table for everybody else.” Floyd allowed four hits in ve innings pitched, and he struck out two and walked three. He threw only 60 pitches, and Compton said he wouldn’t rule out Floyd making an appearance in today’s title game. Compton said either Jordan Finch or Shelby Savel would start on the mound. Floyd held the Hornets’ top two hitters, Noah Leake (.368 average) and Micah Byrd (.358), to a combined 0-for-5 performance. Lafayette batted 4 for 18 as a team. “He went out there and threw strikes,” Compton said. “They had some quality hitters in the lineup, but he made them put it in play, and they hit it at us.” King was 2 for 2, and his two-out double in the second resulted in his third RBI and an 8-0 cushion. Floyd and Rowell each had two hits for Chipley. Byrd, the Hornets’ starting pitcher, allowed nine runs (eight unearned), walked four and threw 79 pitches in three innings of work. Chipley rapped out 12 hits in 24 at-bats in the game.

Steve Southerland and chal lenger Gwen Graham kicked off grass-roots campaigns Saturday with calls for help in one of the most hotly con tested congressional races in the country this year. The Women for Souther land Coalition turned out in the morning with about 100 people for a brunch on the roof of the Gulf Coast State College Advanced Technol ogy Center. Graham and about 60 supporters celebrated the opening of her Panama City campaign headquar ters on Jenks Avenue in the afternoon. “We’re going to need all of your support to elect Gwen to Congress and bring an independent voice back to north Florida,” said Julia Woodward, Graham’s cam paign manager. Graham and Southerland brought friends to sound a call to action. Former Congressman J.R. Middlemas described Graham, who has never run for political ofce, as smart, poised and compassionate, with a knack for building consensus. Rep. Kristi Noem, RS.D., said Southerland was a family man and an advocate who supports women, and will help the middle class by opposing industry regula tions that will force energy and food producers to pass on their additional costs to consumers. Graham spoke out against tax breaks for the wealthy at the expense of the middle class, and court ed women with her sup port for equal pay for equal work. “First and foremost, we need to get our nancial house in order,” she said. Graham’s remarks were brief and general. Souther land and Noem, on the oth er hand, spent more than an hour detailing how people can support Southerland, including organized letterwriting and social media campaigns. Southerland said his op ponents are organized and already are campaigning against him in both areas. “If you go to my Face book page they are beating the tar out of me,” Souther land said. “It would be nice to have some friends.” Southerland played up his everyman appeal and painted Graham as an outsider. National Democratic groups see him as vulnera ble, which Southerland has embraced. “If you’re not taking ak you’re not over the target,” Southerland said. “We’re over the target.” He said he expects to spend $2.5 million on this campaign — compared to $1.8 million in 2012 — to fend off attacks from out side groups who hope to “destroy the Steve Souther land you know.” “This district will see the darnedest congres sional race ever seen,” he predicted. Southerland and Gra ham stressed the impor tance of Bay County to their success in the November election. Graham is the daughter of Bob Graham, the former governor and senator. Al though she is a Democrat, she said she is a moderate who would eschew parti sanship in favor of reason able solutions. She recalled childhood days spent play ing with Middlemas’ chil dren in Bay County and spoke of her family’s roots in North Florida. She said she was not re cruited to run for Souther land’s seat, and she dinged him as an insider in a dys functional Congress whose support of the government shutdown was disastrous. “This is Graham coun try. It is,” Graham said. “It’s Graham country. It’s the part of Florida that knows my family, that knows what we stand for.” PHOt T OS By Y HH E at AT HER LEip IP H a A R t T | The News Herald At top Gwen Graham speaks Saturday at the opening of her Panama City campaign headquarters, while Rep.

With 30 teams and more than 297 participants combined, Washington and Holmes County raised more than $70,000 this year. Event Coordinator Shannon Rodriguez said she felt encouraged that if each team raised $500 each, this year’s goal of $85,000 would be reached. Event Chair James Schweinsburg said this was the largest participation in the Luminaria ceremony to date, with more than 500 people purchasing the lights to place around the track in memory or honor of loved ones who fought or are still ghting cancer. The bags light up the track, allowing everyone to view the names and get a small, personal glimpse of those touched by cancer. Dozens of teams stayed from dusk until dawn with games and activities to lift-up and encourage those with cancer and raise awareness about the disease. There was also a softball tournament held to help raise more money for cancer research. All proceeds raised y the event will stay in our area to help those locally through programs such as: Research. For more than 65 years, the American Cancer Society has been nding answers that save lives from changes in lifestyle to new approaches in therapies to improving cancer patients’ quality of life. No single nongovernmental, not-for-prot organization in the US has invested more to nd the causes and cures of cancer. Hope LodgeWhere to stay and how to afford accommodations are immediate concerns for cancer patients who must travel away from home for the best treatment. American Cancer Society Hope Lodge facilities provide a free and comfortable place for patients and their caregivers to stay, so they can focus on getting well. Road To RecoveryCancer patients frequently cite transportation to and from treatment as one of their most critical needs. The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program matches cancer patients with specially trained volunteer drivers. Look Good…Feel BetterThis free service teaches women battling cancer beauty techniques to help them improve their appearance and self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Volunteer beauty professionals demonstrate makeup techniques, nail care, skin care, and options related to hair loss.
