The FCAT 2.0 is a criterionreferenced test that measures student success in reading, math ematics, science, and writing. FCAT 2.0 Reading is administered for grades 3-10, Mathematics for grades 3-8, Science for grades 5-8 and FCAT 2.0 Writing for grades 4, 8, and 10. Students here made steady improvements in this years test ing, showing notable gains on the FCAT 2.0 Writing and Third Grade Reading and Mathematics tests. Washington County improved from 2013 in all ve assessment areas released last week. This includes a 17 percentage-point increase in Grade 10 writing, a 16 percentagepoint increase in Grade 4 writing, and an eight percentage-point in creases in Grade 3 mathematics and Grade 8 writing. Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart congratulated teach ers and students in Washington County for the increased scores in a press release last week. These impressive gains are the result of district leaders pro viding teachers with the tools and training they need to succeed, said Commissioner Stewart. I am condent that with new stan dards and assessments next year replacing the FCAT, our students will continue to succeed.

The proportion of Holmes Countyresidents receiving food stamps hit 27.0 percent in 2011, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Services. Thats an increase of 12.5 percentage points since 2007, the year the recession started. Across Florida, 17.2 per cent of residents in 2011 received support from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), as the food stamp program is ofcially known. Nation ally, 14.8 percent of the population receives SNAP benets. Places like Holmes County, which are located outside metropolitan areas, tend to have a higher per centage of the population receiving SNAP benets. Thats because incomes are generally lower in non metropolitan counties. The ination-adjusted median household income in Holmes County in 2011 was $34,397, compared to the Florida median of $45,830 and the national median of $52,306 (in 2013 dollars).

This is evidence of the tre mendous work our staff and students have been performing, and we all should be justiably proud, said Taylor. He also re ports a new assessment based on the Florida Standards will re place the FCAT 2.0 next year. The Florida Standards for mathematics and English lan guage arts stress a broader ap proach for student learning, including an increased empha sis on analytical thinking, he explained. With the new and more rigorous standards, a new assessment was needed to mea sure student progress. Washington Countys suc cess is part of a statewide trend of academic gains that has received national attention. Florida jumped from 11th to 6th in the nation for educational qual ity in 2013. In the past decade, the number of Florida gradu ates participating in AP courses has more than doubled, and the number of low-income graduates taking advanced placement (AP) courses has increased tenfold. Additionally, Floridas gradua tion rate was 75.6% for the 20122013 school year an increase of 1.1 percentage points over the prior year and up ve percentage points from the 2010-2011 aca demic year. SCHOOLS from page A1a larger role in the local economy in rural areas and small towns, according to federal data. In Holmes County SNAP benets are 1.1 percent of personal income. Nationally, the gure is 0.6 percent. In 2011, residents of Hol mes County received a com bined $8,040,242 in SNAP benets. The USDA re ports that each $5 in SNAP benets generates $9.20 in spending. Places like Washington County, which are located outside metropolitan areas, tend to have a higher per centage of the population receiving SNAP benefits. Thats because incomes are generally lower in non metropolitan counties. The inflation-adjusted median household income in Washington County in 2011 was $36,254, compared to the Florida median of $45,830 and the national median of $52,306 (in 2013 dollars). Food stamps may play a larger role in the local economy in rural areas and small towns, according to federal data. In Washing ton County SNAP benefits are 1.1 percent of personal income. Nationally, the fig ure is 0.6 percent. In 2011, residents of Washington County received a combined $7,388,779 in SNAP ben efits. The USDA reports that each $5 in SNAP ben efits generates $9.20 in spending. SNAP benefits start to circulate in the economy quickly. Participants spend nearly all their food stamps within one month of receipt, according to a study by the University of New Hamp shire Carsey Institute. Grocers say they feel the impact of SNAP and other USDA nutrition pro grams like Women, Infants and Children (WIC). Without SNAP and WIC, we wouldnt be able to make it, wrote the owner of the Mill City Market in the small town of Mill City, Ore., in a survey of rural grocers conducted by the Oregon Food Bank and Kansas State University Rural Grocery Initiative. Owners know they have to stock the shelves to pre pare for more business when SNAP benefits hit the streets, said David Procter with the Rural Grocery Initiative Its not just the momand-pop stores that see a bump from food-stamp spending in small towns and rural areas. Walmart reported in a recent Se curities and Exchange Commission filing that a decrease in SNAP benefits last year could affect the retail giants bottom line. Average SNAP benefits nationally fell about $30 a month per family in No vember after a temporary increase that was part of the 2009 economic stimulus package. More funding de creases are on the way. This summer, Congress agreed to trim about $8 bil lion from SNAP over the next decade. Backers of the cuts said the program had expanded too much in re cent years and was creating too much reliance on gov ernment assistance. SNAP expenditures increased 135 percent between 2007 and 2011. U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (Va.-R) backed a measure that would have removed SNAP from the farm bill entirely. While [SNAP] is an im portant part of our safety net, our overriding goal should be to help our citi zens with the education and skills they need to get back on their feet so that they can provide for them selves and their families, Rep. Cantor said during congressional debate. Food stamps have been part of the farm bill for the past 50 years. The legislations combination of farming and nutrition programs has helped en sure the bill receives broad backing from farm-country representatives and more urban-based members who support anti-poverty programs. That alliance was tested but held with the passage of the 2014 farm bill. Data for this article came from USDA Food and Nutrition Services, the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the U.S. Cen sus. The data was compiled and analyzed by Roberto Gallardo, Ph.D., associate Extension professor with the Mississippi State Uni versity Extension Service. Funding for this report came from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foun dation.

This week is promot ed on our website and on posters in the schools, he said. (Bullying) is also addressed in our policies, code of conduct book, website, and personnel handbook. We have an anonymous online form available to report bullying and cyber bullying and tips available for students and parents on how to handle and prevent all forms of bullying. Holmes County schools have also teamed up with the Holmes County Sher iffs Ofce in preventing cyber bullying, which host ed a student created video contest initiated by School Resource Ofcer Greg Johnson. Our students were very creative in con veying a positive message preventing cyber bullying, said Dixon. Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown says preven tion and education is a key priority for his ofce. The Legislature has addressed cyber bullying and is awaiting the vote for the law to pass, said Brown. The impact of bully ing has been well docu mented, and studies have shown that difculty mak ing friends, loneliness, low self-esteem, depression, poor academic achieve ment, and truancy are all associated with being bul lied. We must instill in our youth the ideals of civility and respect, and we must create environments that prevent bullying where our children live, learn and play. Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock shares Browns concerns and has also worked with the Washington County School District to provide education about the issue. Haddock says a key com ponent of the success to any anti-bullying campaign is parental involvement, however. We have to start edu cation at home, said Had dock. We need to teach our children that we are all different, and thats the way God intended it but we always need to provide as much education as pos sible through our school system and teach students to stand up and say no to bullying. Students in Roulhac Middle Schools 6th grade Critical Thinking Skills Classes are ahead of the game in that department. The students launched their own anti-bullying campaign, showing a video and providing edu cation material for other students. Washington County School Superintendent Jo seph Taylor says districts are monitored by the De partment of Education for bullying. We just had a monitor ing session on-site with a representative from the department to make sure that we are following law and to ensure that we have mechanisms in place for reporting and procedures to handle any and all al legations of bullying, said Taylor. As a district, we take bullying allegations seriously and want to make sure all schools are safe for everyone. During the mon itoring on May 22, the rep resentative was very im pressed by the safeguards and procedures that we have in place. We are continuing to improve and implement safe procedures for our students and staff. When we do not have on-site reviews, we do self moni toring each school year. If we have bullying cases, they are reported to the state through the School Environmental Safety In cident Reporting (SESIR) System. Not just school systems and law enforcement are taking a stand. Other or ganizations, like Trinity Martial Arts in Chipley, are being proactive in the ght against bullying, too. TMA students recently signed the Hyper Bully Defense Pledge to do their best on a personal level to stop bullying when they see it happening. School owner and Head Instructor Jason Smith says nearly all of those en rolled took the pledge. Its a good thing to train them early in both right and wrong and com passion, said Smith. A bill intended to make bullying punishable by up to one year in jail was ap proved by a state Senate committee last month but died in the Criminal Jus tice Subcommittee on May 2. Some legislators have vowed to keep working on anti-bullying legislation similar passed. Look for legislative updates in upcoming editions. BULLY from page A1

My last three articles arose from our trip to Opp, Alabama on May 3rd for the combination Steel Guitar Festival and the 8th. Annual Lew Childre Tribute, one of Opps Favorite Sons. The Prattler well remembers the good natured chiding from the Washington County Courthouses well beloved employee, Lois Ruth Hardin, when the rst three articles appeared as Perrys Prattle. Those rst columns revolved around a day long visit to a Legislative Session in Tallahassee, which was winding to a conclusion in April 2003. The column has survived for more than eleven years when I predicted a short life span for the effort. This ladys two nieces in Chipley, Sarah McQueen, Franklin and Joyce McQueen Odom, will well remember the long tenured employee not mincing any words when she told me: I never knew anyone could write so much about one little ole visit to the State Capitol, then adding: I think its about time to move on to another topic.. The rst article on Lew Childre speci cally concluded one paragraph with the statement: The entertainer lived and died without me ever having seen the man. I will now proudly correct that erroneous statement! I saw Lew Childre perform on the Grand Ole Opry stage in the old Ryman Auditorium on Saturday night, March 12 1949. My brother, Jim Wells, and I were serving as Military Escorts, accompanying the remains of the World War II dead, to their homes for reburial under the American Graves Registration Division of the U. S. Military. Jim and I had been assigned to escort soldiers to the same McDonald Funeral Home in Centerville, Tennessee. I was with the remains of T/5 Nolan D. Green of Route 2, Primm, Tennessee and Jim was escorting the body of Pvt. Kyle W. Qualls Comedy writer Robert Orben once said a graduation ceremony is where a well known commencement speaker tells hundreds of graduates, all dressed exactly the same, that individuality is the key to their success. Despite a personal aversion to events involving tassels, I recently took a trip to Tallahassee to watch my younger sister, Marsha, graduate from college. As I lined up at 6 p.m. to wait for the doors to open (which were marked will open at 6:30) for the 7:30 ceremony, I thought of the impending graduation of the seniors in Holmes and Washington counties and longed for the simplicity of those ceremonies and more so, the shorter lines. A nostalgic atmosphere settles while members of a small community experience not only their childs graduation, but also that of friends, neighbors and co-workers. There is a sense of pride in the accomplishments of our neighbors grads because we recognize they were the communitys children yesterday and will be its leaders tomorrow. Because most colleges, like Marshas, hold only one commencement ceremony a year, that close-knit experience is hard to come by among so many strangers. Hundreds may be graduating from towns all over the state and nation. It isnt likely the spectators watched the graduates grow up, play ball or get in trouble together. At 6:28, the facilitys security guard, an elderly man armed with a radio and permanent marker, slowly walked to the rst of three sets of double doors and paradoxically penned :30 on each entryway. I had suspected he was wielding the power of his security status, and when he started back at the rst door to remove the signs (for it was 6:30 by time he had completed his rst task), I whispered to my dad, Now hes just messing with us. The ood gates opened, and a sea of proud family and friends were able to enter the arena, most of whom were ready to leave after watching their loved one shake hands with the dean and grab their diploma. Because Marsha graduated with honors, she was one of the rst to walk, but my parents and I stayed for the remaining two-and-a-half hours out of respect for those we didnt know, who also worked hard for this day to arrive. I watched them, grads both young and old, and wondered if there was a small community behind this latest milestone, if the graduate wished their guest list could have numbered in the thousands. Our communitys seniors will soon take their own graduation walk, hats balanced or pinned precariously on their heads, some silently praying they dont trip on their way to the podium. Like many before and many to come, the class of 2014 is a product of more than parental guidance. They are a product of their community, which has celebrated with them as theyve experienced academic and athletic victories, as well as personal triumph and tragedy. The support theyve received along the way has undoubtedly made a difference, and they will surely remember we have called them all sons and daughters. Soon, it will be time for them to give back what theyve received. For now, though, they will simply take this next step, perhaps thinking of the past, the future, and this strange moment in between. Congratulations, Class of 2014. CAROL KENTEditorThe Class of 2014 is a product of community HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

The Qualls funeral was held rst on Saturday and T/5 Greens was at 2:30 p.m. the same day with the same funeral home directing. We were fortunate to nd a ride into Nashville with a husband and wife, who were family members, after all our duties had been completed. It was our desire to attend the Grand Ole Opry that night, my rst experience and Jims second. Our plans worked out beautifully and we saw a full slate of performing stars, with many of them going forward to even greater notoriety in the country and bluegrass music world. For some unknown reason, I listed the names of every individual, or group, on the back of the Special Orders that were issued for each and every escort mission. These envelopes, with all the necessary documents included with every assignment, has been kept, protected and treasured down through these sixtyve years. I hardly ever looked at my historic les, until about forty years ago, when I had a renewed interest in attending music festivals, concerts and shows in the country and bluegrass genre of music. Regular readers know that the Wells Family promoted bluegrass and bluegrassgospel music in Chipley. We also traveled extensively to other festivals. Since the article about not ever having seen Lew Childre, the old les were pulled from the archives when a tribute to all World War II veterans was sponsored by the Town of Wausau and The Garden Club of the town on May 14. Imagine my surprise to see the name Lew Childre. I really dont know if I heard Lew Childre make his down home, profound statement at the Opry in 1949, or if it appears on his old LP record of radio transcriptions. Since I wrote of Stonewall Jacksons proclivity to use the vernacular of his upbringing, I now want to include Lews statement when someone said a kind word about his entertaining or complimented his family, the reply would be: Ahhh, you warm my heart and I dont mean maybe! My notes made so long ago, tells me that my brother and I heard thirtyone performances during the four-hour session of the world famous Grand Ole Opry on our historic visit in 1949. Ironically, the rst two listed were Curly Fox and Texas Ruby. This husband and wife teamed up early in their careers, with Curly, a ddler from Graysville, Tennessee and Ruby Owens from Fort Worth, Texas, who billed herself as Radios Original Yodeling Cowgirl. Sadly, this couple, Curly Fox and Texas Ruby, died in their trailer home when re destroyed the structure in Nashville on March 29, 1963. Just three weeks earlier, on March 9, announcer T. Tommy Cutrer opened the Saturday night Opry Ladies and Gentlemen... Ott Devine, manager of the Grand Ole Opry. A soberfaced Devine came to the microphone, nervously clutching a piece of paper and began: Thank you. Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, Hawshaw Hawkins, Jack Anglin and Randy Hughes never walked on this stage without a smile. They would want us to keep smiling and to recall the happier occasions. I feel that I can speak for all of them when I say, Lets continue in the tradition of the Grand Ole Opry. The ve named individuals met their deaths in a tragic airplane crash a few days earlier while trying to make it back to Nashville during a thunder storm. The Jordanaires came forward to the microphone and sang How Great Thou Art. There was a slight pause after the sacred song then Roy Acuff and the Smoky Mountain Boys struck up a fast ddle tune. As he played, Acuff looked over at Minnie Pearl, standing in the wings, crying softly. Their eyes met and she nodded to Roy and he leaned into the microphone and said: Now, lets make welcome...Cou-sin...Minnie...Pearl! It is reported that Minnie Pearl took a deep breath, swallowed hard, forced a smile and made her tripping, dancing entrance as she went into her routine. It seems a pall has hung over the Grand Ole Opry, observed one writer. See you all next week on a different subjectI promise.

These aggressive tumors spread rapidly, and once diagnosed, should be taken very seriously. OSA commonly affects the limbs of large or giant breed dogs, but can also occur in other parts of the skeleton, such as the skull, ribs, vertebrae and pelvis, said Dr. Rita Ho, veterinary intern instructor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Animals with limb osteosarcoma typically show signs of swelling at the affected side and associated lameness, depending upon the animals unique condition and tumor location. The tumors typically form at or near growth plates, and occasionally, the animal will exhibit a growth on their body or painful inammation near the site of the tumor. If swelling does exist, it is likely because of an extension of the tumor into the surrounding tissues. Diagnosis of osteosarcoma is begun with orthopedic and neurologic examinations, a physical examination, and various x-rays. The biological behavior, prognosis, and treatment of osteosarcoma depend of the primary site, and extent of the disease, Dr. Ho said. Therefore, various diagnostic tests such as radiographs (Xrays), blood tests and sometimes a biopsy or ne needle aspirate are required to determine the most appropriate treatment. Depending on your pets specic condition, there are various treatment options you can consider, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Limb OSA commonly causes lameness and pain because of invasion and destruction of normal bone; therefore surgery is usually the rst recommendation, Dr. Ho said. The surgery serves two purposes: it removes the primary tumor, which is necessary for cancer control, but it also removes the source of pain and might therefore dramatically improve quality of life. Surgery often involves amputation of the diseased limb, which completely resolves the pain for your pet. However, for people who are reluctant to have this procedure done, there are other surgical methods to spare the limb if your pet is not a good candidate or if you arent comfortable with the surgery. Just keep in mind that amputation is almost always well tolerated with the dogs, and a threelegged dog can do virtually everything four-legged dogs can. Chemotherapy is administered to a pet following amputation to kill off any remaining cancer cells, and radiation is recommended primarily for relieving bone pain and discomfort. The average dog with OSA will live only four months if treated with only surgery, Dr. Ho said. With chemotherapy following surgery, usually the life expectancy is 10-12 months. As with any surgery, activity and mobility after the operation will be restricted and pain management programs as well as various medications are typically prescribed for the animal after surgery. However, it is important to remember that you should never administer any pain medication without rst consulting your veterinarian. Unfortunately, osteosarcoma has not been found to be preventable. With thorough examinations and early recognition of the symptoms, however, it can be caught soon enough to take the necessary measures to stop the cancer from spreading and to keep your pet healthy and happy for as long as possible.

SPORTs S www.chipleypaper.com ASection 5020827 By BRAD MILNER AND JASON SHOOTThe News Herald PANAMA CITY BEACH As is the case with any jamboree, there were mixed results among the four Bay County schools playing at the Mike Gavlak Sports Complex on Friday. Arnold hosted Bay, Mosley and Rutherford in four halves of play to close spring football practice. The Rams debuted new coach Rob Armstrong, while Jimmy Longer beam continued as the dean of county coaches at Bay. Arnold held back Bay 15-8 in the opener and Mosley blanked a struggling Rutherford 14-0 in the second half. Bay shut out Ruther ford 18-0 and Mosley bested Arnold 21-6 to complete the jamboree. The teams now enter summer drills with fall practices set to open in early-August. The four teams again are matched in District 1-5A with Mosley securing last seasons county title. Arnold 15, Bay 8 Torri Cotton set the tone for Ar nold with a 73-yard touchdown run on the rst quarters second play. He was held to minus-10 yards on his last four carries, but the Mar lins offense surged behind quar terback Cody Saunders. Saunders completed 9 of his 13 passes for 110 yards in help ing Arnold control the clock. Arnold added two Austin Pef fers eld goals, the long of 41 against a defense that wasnt allowed to rush. The Marlins also sacked Bay quarterback Xavier Longerbeam in the end zone for a second-quarter safety. Bay scored its touchdown on its last possession, Lon gerbeam nding Zavian Ever ett down the left sideline for a 35-yard score on rst down. Raekwon Webb added the 2point conversion run with 2:39 to play. Longerbeam nished 4 for 6 for 50 yards while adding 37 yards on the ground. Saunders spread out his completions to six receiv ers with Paul Patterson grabbing a team-high three recep tions for 23 yards. Nicholas Berg man gained 50 yards rushing on four carries in a reserve role. Mosley 14, Rutherford 0 Neither team impressed on of fense, with Mosley earning the victory on the strength of two big plays. Rutherford continued to run the Spread with Armstrong expect ed to install the Wing-T in the fall. Rams quarterback Justin Da vis attempted only three passes despite the wide formation. He completed two passes, one for no gain and the second a 42-yarder to Aaron Hamilton on the Rams third possession. Rutherford elected to punt ve times, with the decision resulting in added yardage rather than a live play. The Rams other possession ended on downs. Mosley chose to punt once, turned the ball over on downs an other time and lost a fumble on its rst possession. Ezra Gray provided the rst highlight when he took a screen pass from Dillon Brown and raced 48 yards for a score in the second quarter. Gray added 17 yards on four carries. Trey Trzaska also recorded a big gain for 37 yards on a reception on Mosleys next drive. Jimmy Daniel, who had 48 total yards, capped the march with a 12-yard score. Mosley used four quarterbacks, including rotating Peyton Calhoun and Scott Whitaker on the nal possession. Bay 18, Rutherford 0 Webb spotted the Tornadoes a 6-0 lead on the contests rst play, and Longerbeam and receiver Everett connected for two passing touchdowns as Bay cruised to the victory. Webb broke loose on the rst play from scrimmage for a 75-yard romp and a near-instant 6-0 lead. Longerbeam hit Everett with a 36-yard scoring strike late in the rst quarter. Everett wrestled a contested ball away from a defend er at the goal line, and he stepped into the end zone to double the Tor nadoes lead at 12-0. Longerbeam and Everett teamed up again for a 53-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter for an 18-0 lead with just over three minutes left. Everett used his speed to get behind a pair of defenders, and Longerbeams pass hit the receiver in stride for the touchdown. Davis delivered a 33-yard pass to EJ Foster in the rst quarter for the Rams biggest play. The Ram offense stalled at Bays 32yard line, however, and ultimately turned the ball over on downs. That was the rst of three Rutherford possessions that ended in Tornado territory. Bay endured three fumbles offensively and was fortunate it lost only one. Rutherford fumbled twice but recovere Mosley 21, Arnold 6 Mosleys offense began the matchup against Arnold with a game of keep-away before Brown and receiver James Lovett gave the Dolphins a lead they would not surrender. Facing fourth-and-25 at Arnolds 26-yard line, Brown heaved the ball down the left sideline. Lovett ran under the throw and jumped over a defender to cap the Dolphins 15-play drive. After an Arnold punt, Daniel raced 55 yards untouched through the middle of the Marlins defense for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead for Mosley with 4:38 left in the rst quarter. Peffers kicked a 32-yard eld goal on the Marlins ensuing possession. His attempt was set up by quarterback Cody Saunders 50yard pass to Jovanni Perea to the Mosley 15. Daniel posted his second touchdown with a 20-yard run and ex tended Mosleys lead to 21-3 with 10 1/2 minutes left. Peffers netted another 32-yard eld goal midway through the sec ond quarter to provide the games nal margin.SPRING FOOTBALL JAMBOREE Patti ATTI BLa A Ke E | The News HeraldRutherfords Quinn Jones tackles Mosleys Devontia Wilson. SPRING IN THEIR STEPMosley stands tall in county clashLet it be written that I have no doubt NFL teams supplied players with powerful painkillers and other drugs to keep them playing during their careers that have led to serious health complications later in life. Perry Mason couldnt make me waver on that. Not even in black and white. Also let it be written that I believe the basis of the lawsuit led last week on behalf of more than 500 explayers that the league put prots ahead of players health. Whereas I fully support the lawsuit led for the thousands of retired players accusing the NFL of concealing the risks of concussions and later debilitating life issues think that the $765 million settlement the league has agreed to pay is not enough Im not backing the former players on this one. It seems hypocritical to even write as much, but I cant get the image of two former players out of my head. Ronnie Lott and Jack Youngblood were warriors in a league of warriors. Although legend has it that Lott told a doctor to amputate his left pinky in the locker room, or maybe it was the defensive huddle, actually it was after the 1985 season when it was crushed while he tackled Dallas running back Timmy Newsome. When told by a doctor that bone graft surgery wouldnt have enabled Lott to be ready in time for the 1986 opener, he opted to have the tip of the nger amputated. Not quite the stuff that has morphed into lore in the decades since, but still representative of the culture that brackets the professional lives of NFL athletes. Youngblood not only went through the entire 1979 playoffs, which included the Super Bowl, but participated in the meaningless 1980 Pro Bowl with a fractured left bula. Thats called a broken leg in the real world. Which the NFL isnt. It is comprised of men who not only have incredible physical gifts, but a capacity to endure pain that dwarfs the average human. That they allegedly were given pain-killing drugs by their team doctors to remain on the eld comes as no surprise. Nor does this tidbit: A lot of them knew exactly what they were doing and would do so again. Thats where I take a left turn with the lawsuit. The shield of the warrior, the camaraderie of the teammate, the persona of the macho athlete all ties into this. As a result of masking their pain with drugs, the lawsuit alleges, players developed heart, lung and nerve ailments; kidney failure; and chronic injuries to muscles, bones and ligaments. Probably so. Its just in this case I dont know where the responsibility of the player ends, and the culpability of the team begins. Im sure that attorneys could better explain it to me, but Im not convinced that I still would get it. After receiving numbing injections and pills before kickoff, players got more drugs and sleep aids after games, to be washed down by beer, the lawsuit states. Again, probably so. And this much, too. How many times have you heard NFL players talk about the necessity of learning the difference between injury and pain upon entering the league, or fearing for their job if they didnt play when hurt? If the intention of the lawsuit is an attempt to change the prevailing culture in the NFL into a more cohesive vision of dealing with injury, then perhaps it is valid. More likely, teams and players always will seek an avenue for them to remain on the eld. What the athletes do need to be informed of, in a more positive manner, is the long-term effect of the drugs they are being given, and be granted better access to more detailed medical records of whatever their condition. They can afford a second opinion. Then they might be able to make a more informed choice. The bottom line is that a group of 20somethings probably would say, in large part, just give me something, doc.

LocalA8 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 28, 2014Special to the NewsWest Florida Electric Cooperative held a meeting for emergency operations center personnel, city per sonnel, re departments and law enforcement agen cies in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson and Washington Counties on Wednesday, May 21. During the meeting, attendees toured the co operatives service center and saw a rst-hand dem onstration of how coopera tive members can report outages. They also learned about how crews are dispatched and the various ways WFEC personnel commu nicates with members us ing Facebook, Twitter and media outlets. Electrical safety infor mation was also shared with all those in attendance, which is especially impor tant for rst-responders. This annual gathering allows electric coopera tive personnel, EOC and city personnel, re depart ments and law enforce ment to collaborate and share ideas about how to best handle power outages and emergency situations caused by storm damage to the area. This workshop is vi tal to the success of res toration efforts when our distribution system sus tains catastrophic dam age caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, severe thun derstorms, or other acts of nature. It allows us to dis cuss problems that weve encountered in the past and brainstorm about how we can best communicate with emergency personnel throughout the four coun ties we serve, said Gary Clark, Vice President, and Member Services. Mother Nature is un predictable, so the proper precautions should always be taken by coastal resi dents and others near the coast. With that thought in mind, WFEC encour ages all its members to be weather aware and begin making their annual hurri cane season preparations before its too late.

Help is available at the Holmes County Public Library in the form of a DVD Stuttering: Straight Talk for Teens. Its meant to encourage teens, to tell them that there is hope out there, said Professor Peter Ramig of the University of Colorado at Boulder. Ramig is one of three nationally recognized experts appearing in the DVD produced by the nonprot Stuttering Foundation. David Wilkins, a high school student who stutters, narrates the DVD. It features students from junior high school through college talking about their experiences with stuttering and what they found to be helpful. They talk openly about the ridicule they faced from classmates and how their stuttering affects their lives. We really try to emphasize the embarrassment and frustration factor, and we think teens will relate to that, adds Ramig. He appears in the DVD along with speech-language pathologists Dr. Barry Guitar of the University of Vermont and Dr. Hugo Gregory of Northwestern University. The three experts answer questions about stuttering, refute myths and misconceptions, and present examples of therapy sessions showing how stuttering can be reduced. More than three million Americans stutter, yet stuttering remains misunderstood by most people, said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation. Myths such as believing people who stutter are less intelligent or suffer from psychological problems still persist despite research refuting these erroneous beliefs. Books and DVDs produced by the 66-year-old nonprot Stuttering Foundation are available free to any public library. A library that will shelve them can contact the Foundation at 1-800-9929392, e-mail info@stutteringhelp.org, or visit www. stutteringhelp.org or www.tartarmudez.org.

Wednesday, May 28, 2014 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Extra and Special to The News The Chipley Garden Club was treated to a very entertaining horticultural lesson by Clint Fussell and the premier tour of Fussells Rustic Daylily Garden Farm on Thursday, May 22. The garden, which is on Gainer Road, offers more than 600 named varieties of daylilies and many more that are unnamed. All are featured in neat beds scattered with salvia, zinnias, rose bushes, gardenias, Mexican heath and trellised grape vines. A former elementary school teacher, Fussells fascination with Hemerocallis, commonly known as daylilies, stemmed from his grandmother Frances Fussell, who has been growing daylilies for more than 50 years in her home gardens. My vision of the daylily farm was driven by my grandmothers love of gardening, Fussell said. Only two years ago, I purchased my very rst daylily plant, and since then, Ive gone crazy mad for them. It is my ambition to explore the mysteries of hybridization in the future. We are very excited to offer plants to the public this year, and we welcome guests. The name Hemerocallis comes from Greek words meaning day and beautiful, which alludes that each ower only lasts one day. Daylilies, which are native to Asia, are often called the perfect perennial. They are able to survive with little care once established, are drought-tolerant and have relative few pests and disease problems. With more than 70,000, varieties daylilies come in a rainbow of colors and all kids of combinations, except for blues and white. They are also available in different heights, scents, rufed, tipped, dotted, dusted, speckled, doubles, spiders and some are even diamond dusted. Flowers range from 3 to 5 inches. The varieties are endless. The garden club has been looking forward to visiting Fussells garden for several months, and it has truly been worth the wait, one club member said. The daylilies are spectacular, and the information Fussell provided on daylily care and gardening will be put to good use in our home gardens. We encourage other garden clubs in the area to visit. Clint is a fountain of daylily information. The Chipley Garden Club does not meet during the summer months, but members continue to enjoy elds trips and other opportunities. To learn more, call Club President Karen Roberts at 638-9968. Special to The NewsThe Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon May 20 at Pattillos Restaurant at the Washington Holmes Technical Center. Lunch was provided by the students of the Technical Center Culinary Program. President-Elect Wayland Fulford noted that the groundbreaking for the new Kate Smith Elementary School will be at 9:30 a.m. today, May 28. Wayland then introduced the program: LeAnne Bailey Staalenburg, senior vice president and information security manager for Capital City Bank. Stallenburg noted that increasingly, smaller businesses are becoming targets for cybercrime. She offered a number of techniques to protect computer systems from internet criminals. The rst suggestion and one of the most important is to not answer strange emails from people you dont know. Internet criminals can take over your computer and spread spam from your computer, hack other businesses through your computer, install malware on your computer and take over your email accounts. They can target your computer by sending you an email with an attachment. If you open the attachment, you let them in. Stallenburg suggested that when you get a new computer, set up separate accounts, and change the administrative password on your computer. She also suggested you password-protect your cell phone, and make your passwords much more difcult by using at least eight characters, capital letters, numbers and symbols. Her advice is to gure out a system to establish your passwords, and stick with it. Use different passwords for banking, credit cards and emails. Dont use easily guessed words. Never share passwords with anyone. Get out of websites if they look or act funny or strange. Use a credit card to shop online rather than a debit card. The credit card provides some protection, and you can get your money back if you are scammed. Block social network sites from your work computer. She also offered clues to a secure website: https means it is secure and is good. A lock symbol means it is more secure and better. A green URL bar means it is most secure and is the best. Only have one page open when you are in your bank account. The Kiwanis club meets at noon Tuesdays at Pattillos restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus.

While touring the touring the city, the group had the opportunity to see two Broadway shows (Wicked & Cinderella), explore Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, travel on a ferry in the waterways surrounding Manhattan, visit the immigrant museum at Ellis Island, tour the iconic Radio City Music Hall and tour Chinatown and Little Italy. The students also participated in a meet the artist event where they were given the opportunity to work with a Broadway casting director to learn effective stage audition techniques. The event complimented with a view of the New York Skyline from the observation deck on the Top of the Rock. I am extremely proud that my students were able to experience this iconic city and stroll the streets of Broadway. This trip helped to reinforce the concepts taught within my classroom throughout the year. It is my hope that the students have a better understanding of the theatre as an art form.

Jason Bruner JASON BRUNERBeloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin, and friend, Clyde Stanley went to his nal home May 19, 2014. His unfailing love and devotion to his wife of 62 years, Greta, was an example to his children and grandchildren. To his wife, he was her world; his sons and grandsons, a genius with the ability to x anything or share his knowledge on any subject; to his daughter, daughtersin-law, granddaughters, and sister, he was their hero. Clyde was born Sept. 21, 1929 in Leonia, the only son of Marcus Charles and Emma Alberta Lynn Stanley. He had two sisters Anita (Jerry) Headley, who was so much more than a sister, and Mazie (deceased 1939). Married to Greta Barrow September 1951, this union brought a legacy of love through their children and following generations. Children: Diane Green, Joseph (Linda) Stanley, Mark (Dena) Stanley; grandchildren, Shanna Green, Cory (Kim) Green, Chelsea Burlison, Amber Ebersole, Ashley (Jeff) Briggs, Brydon Stanley, April (Ray Higuera) Stanley, and Marcus Stanley; step grandchildren Kevin and Brody Woodling, nine great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Clyde was proud to have served his country retiring with 21 years active duty in the Air Force as a C124 (Ol Shakey) ight engineer and 21 years civil service retiring from Hill AFB, UT as an aircraft maintenance supervisor. Clyde was small in stature but a GIANT in the things that matter most, his endless love of God, family, friends, fellowman, and all animals. He was honorable, just, and fair. He was a humble man, true to his southern roots, and proud of his heritage. He was a quiet, wise man of few words but could speak volumes with a hug, a smile, a twinkle in his eyes or the raise of one eye brow. He enjoyed many activities; antique cars (having rebuilt a prize winning 56 Thunderbird), NASCAR, all sports (football being top of his list), riding ATVs on dirt or the sand dunes, even at age 84. Clyde died living where and doing what he loved. He continues to live on through the hearts of those who loved him.

The FCAT 2.0 is a criterionreferenced test that measures student success in reading, math ematics, science, and writing. FCAT 2.0 Reading is administered for grades 3-10, Mathematics for grades 3-8, Science for grades 5-8 and FCAT 2.0 Writing for grades 4, 8, and 10. Students here made steady improvements in this year’s test ing, showing notable gains on the FCAT 2.0 Writing and Third Grade Reading and Mathematics tests. Washington County improved from 2013 in all ve assessment areas released last week. This includes a 17 percentage-point increase in Grade 10 writing, a 16 percentagepoint increase in Grade 4 writing, and an eight percentage-point in creases in Grade 3 mathematics and Grade 8 writing. Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart congratulated teach ers and students in Washington County for the increased scores in a press release last week. “These impressive gains are the result of district leaders pro viding teachers with the tools and training they need to succeed,” said Commissioner Stewart. “I am condent that with new stan dards and assessments next year replacing the FCAT, our students will continue to succeed.” Washington County Superin tendent of Schools Joseph Taylor INDEX Arrests . .................................

The proportion of Hol mes Countyresidents re ceiving food stamps hit 27.0 percent in 2011, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Services. That’s an increase of 12.5 percentage points since 2007, the year the recession started. Across Florida, 17.2 per cent of residents in 2011 received support from the Supplemental Nutrition As sistance Program (SNAP), as the food stamp program is ofcially known. Nation ally, 14.8 percent of the population receives SNAP benets. Places like Holmes County, which are located outside metropolitan areas, tend to have a higher per centage of the population receiving SNAP benets. That’s because incomes are generally lower in non metropolitan counties. The ination-adjusted median household income in Holmes County in 2011 was $34,397, compared to the Florida median of $45,830 and the national median of $52,306 (in 2013 dollars).

He also re ports a new assessment based on the Florida Standards will re place the FCAT 2.0 next year. “The Florida Standards for mathematics and English lan guage arts stress a broader ap proach for student learning, including an increased empha sis on analytical thinking,” he explained. “With the new and more rigorous standards, a new assessment was needed to mea sure student progress.” Washington County’s suc cess is part of a statewide trend of academic gains that has received national attention. Florida jumped from 11th to 6th in the nation for educational qual ity in 2013. In the past decade, the number of Florida gradu ates participating in AP courses has more than doubled, and the number of low-income graduates taking advanced placement (AP) courses has increased tenfold. Additionally, Florida’s gradua tion rate was 75.6% for the 20122013 school year – an increase of 1.1 percentage points over the prior year and up ve percentage points from the 2010-2011 aca demic year. SCHOOLS from page A1 a larger role in the local economy in rural areas and small towns, according to federal data. In Holmes County SNAP benets are 1.1 percent of personal in come. Nationally, the gure is 0.6 percent. In 2011, residents of Hol mes County received a com bined $8,040,242 in SNAP benets. The USDA re ports that each $5 in SNAP benets generates $9.20 in spending. Places like Washington County, which are located outside metropolitan areas, tend to have a higher per centage of the population receiving SNAP benefits. That’s because incomes are generally lower in non metropolitan counties. The inflation-adjusted median household income in Washington County in 2011 was $36,254, compared to the Florida median of $45,830 and the national median of $52,306 (in 2013 dollars). Food stamps may play a larger role in the local economy in rural areas and small towns, according to federal data. In Washing ton County SNAP benefits are 1.1 percent of personal income. Nationally, the fig ure is 0.6 percent. In 2011, residents of Washington County received a combined $7,388,779 in SNAP ben efits. The USDA reports that each $5 in SNAP ben efits generates $9.20 in spending. SNAP benefits start to circulate in the economy quickly. Participants spend nearly all their food stamps within one month of receipt, according to a study by the University of New Hamp shire Carsey Institute. Grocers say they feel the impact of SNAP and other USDA nutrition pro grams like Women, Infants and Children (WIC). “Without SNAP and WIC, we wouldn’t be able to make it,” wrote the owner of the Mill City Market in the small town of Mill City, Ore., in a survey of rural grocers conducted by the Oregon Food Bank and Kansas State University Rural Grocery Initiative. Owners know they have to stock the shelves to pre pare for more business when SNAP benefits hit the streets, said David Procter with the Rural Grocery Initiative It’s not just the momand-pop stores that see a bump from food-stamp spending in small towns and rural areas. Walmart reported in a recent Se curities and Exchange Commission filing that a decrease in SNAP benefits last year could affect the retail giant’s bottom line. Average SNAP benefits nationally fell about $30 a month per family in No vember after a temporary increase that was part of the 2009 economic stimulus package. More funding de creases are on the way. This summer, Congress agreed to trim about $8 bil lion from SNAP over the next decade. Backers of the cuts said the program had expanded too much in re cent years and was creating too much reliance on gov ernment assistance. SNAP expenditures increased 135 percent between 2007 and 2011. U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (Va.-R) backed a measure that would have removed SNAP from the farm bill entirely. “While [SNAP] is an im portant part of our safety net, our overriding goal should be to help our citi zens with the education and skills they need to get back on their feet so that they can provide for them selves and their families,” Rep. Cantor said during congressional debate. Food stamps have been part of the farm bill for the past 50 years. The legislation’s combination of farming and nutrition programs has helped en sure the bill receives broad backing from farm-country representatives and more urban-based members who support anti-poverty programs. That alliance was tested but held with the passage of the 2014 farm bill. Data for this article came from USDA Food and Nutrition Services, the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the U.S. Cen sus. The data was compiled and analyzed by Roberto Gallardo, Ph.D., associate Extension professor with the Mississippi State Uni versity Extension Service. Funding for this report came from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foun dation.

Above, JROTC cadet Michael Laurie was among those placing ags of honor. CAROL KENT The News H onorONOR I nN G tT H eE F allen ALLEN about the dangers of cyber bullying. “This week is promot ed on our website and on posters in the schools,” he said. “(Bullying) is also addressed in our policies, code of conduct book, website, and personnel handbook. We have an anonymous online form available to report bullying and cyber bullying and tips available for students and parents on how to handle and prevent all forms of bullying.” Holmes County schools have also teamed up with the Holmes County Sher iff’s Ofce in preventing cyber bullying, which host ed a student created video contest initiated by School Resource Ofcer Greg Johnson. “Our students were very creative in con veying a positive message preventing cyber bullying,” said Dixon. Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown says preven tion and education is a key priority for his ofce. “The Legislature has addressed cyber bullying and is awaiting the vote for the law to pass,” said Brown. “The impact of bully ing has been well docu mented, and studies have shown that difculty mak ing friends, loneliness, low self-esteem, depression, poor academic achieve ment, and truancy are all associated with being bul lied. We must instill in our youth the ideals of civility and respect, and we must create environments that prevent bullying where our children live, learn and play.” Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock shares Brown’s concerns and has also worked with the Washington County School District to provide education about the issue. Haddock says a key com ponent of the success to any anti-bullying campaign is parental involvement, however. “We have to start edu cation at home,” said Had dock. “We need to teach our children that we are all different, and that’s the way God intended it — but we always need to provide as much education as pos sible through our school system and teach students to stand up and say no to bullying.” Students in Roulhac Middle School’s 6th grade Critical Thinking Skills Classes are ahead of the game in that department. The students launched their own anti-bullying campaign, showing a video and providing edu cation material for other students. Washington County School Superintendent Jo seph Taylor says districts are monitored by the De partment of Education for bullying. “We just had a monitor ing session on-site with a representative from the department to make sure that we are following law and to ensure that we have mechanisms in place for reporting and procedures to handle any and all al legations of bullying,” said Taylor. “As a district, we take bullying allegations seriously and want to make sure all schools are safe for everyone. During the mon itoring on May 22, the rep resentative was very im pressed by the safeguards and procedures that we have in place.” “We are continuing to improve and implement safe procedures for our students and staff. When we do not have on-site reviews, we do self moni toring each school year. If we have bullying cases, they are reported to the state through the School Environmental Safety In cident Reporting (SESIR) System.” Not just school systems and law enforcement are taking a stand. Other or ganizations, like Trinity Martial Arts in Chipley, are being proactive in the ght against bullying, too. TMA students recently signed the “Hyper Bully Defense Pledge” to do their best on a personal level to stop bullying when they see it happening. School owner and Head Instructor Jason Smith says nearly all of those en rolled took the pledge. “It’s a good thing to train them early in both right and wrong and com passion,” said Smith. A bill intended to make bullying punishable by up to one year in jail was ap proved by a state Senate committee last month but died in the Criminal Jus tice Subcommittee on May 2. Some legislators have vowed to keep working on anti-bullying legislation similar passed. Look for legislative updates in upcoming editions. BULLY from page A1

Those rst columns revolved around a day long visit to a Legislative Session in Tallahassee, which was winding to a conclusion in April 2003. The column has survived for more than eleven years when I predicted a short life span for the effort. This lady’s two nieces in Chipley, Sarah McQueen, Franklin and Joyce McQueen Odom, will well remember the long tenured employee not mincing any words when she told me: “I never knew anyone could write so much about one little ole visit to the State Capitol,” then adding: “I think it’s about time to move on to another topic.”. The rst article on Lew Childre speci cally concluded one paragraph with the statement: “The entertainer lived and died without me ever having seen the man”. I will now proudly correct that erroneous statement! I saw Lew Childre perform on the Grand Ole Opry stage in the old Ryman Auditorium on Saturday night, March 12 1949. My brother, Jim Wells, and I were serving as Military Escorts, accompanying the remains of the World War II dead, to their homes for reburial under the American Graves Registration Division of the U. S. Military. Jim and I had been assigned to escort soldiers to the same McDonald Funeral Home in Centerville, Tennessee. I was with the remains of T/5 Nolan D. Green of Route 2, Primm, Tennessee and Jim was escorting the body of Pvt. Kyle W. Qualls Comedy writer Robert Orben once said a graduation ceremony is where a well known commencement speaker tells hundreds of graduates, all dressed exactly the same, that individuality is the key to their success. Despite a personal aversion to events involving tassels, I recently took a trip to Tallahassee to watch my younger sister, Marsha, graduate from college. As I lined up at 6 p.m. to wait for the doors to open (which were marked “will open at 6:30”) for the 7:30 ceremony, I thought of the impending graduation of the seniors in Holmes and Washington counties and longed for the simplicity of those ceremonies — and more so, the shorter lines. A nostalgic atmosphere settles while members of a small community experience not only their child’s graduation, but also that of friends, neighbors and co-workers. There is a sense of pride in the accomplishments of our neighbors’ grads because we recognize they were the community’s children yesterday and will be its leaders tomorrow. Because most colleges, like Marsha’s, hold only one commencement ceremony a year, that close-knit experience is hard to come by among so many strangers. Hundreds may be graduating from towns all over the state and nation. It isn’t likely the spectators watched the graduates grow up, play ball or get in trouble together. At 6:28, the facility’s security guard, an elderly man armed with a radio and permanent marker, slowly walked to the rst of three sets of double doors and paradoxically penned “6:30” on each entryway. I had suspected he was wielding the power of his security status, and when he started back at the rst door to remove the signs (for it was 6:30 by time he had completed his rst task), I whispered to my dad, “Now he’s just messing with us.” The ood gates opened, and a sea of proud family and friends were able to enter the arena, most of whom were ready to leave after watching their loved one shake hands with the dean and grab their diploma. Because Marsha graduated with honors, she was one of the rst to walk, but my parents and I stayed for the remaining two-and-a-half hours out of respect for those we didn’t know, who also worked hard for this day to arrive. I watched them, grads both young and old, and wondered if there was a small community behind this latest milestone, if the graduate wished their guest list could have numbered in the thousands. Our community’s seniors will soon take their own graduation walk, hats balanced or pinned precariously on their heads, some silently praying they don’t trip on their way to the podium. Like many before and many to come, the class of 2014 is a product of more than parental guidance. They are a product of their community, which has celebrated with them as they’ve experienced academic and athletic victories, as well as personal triumph and tragedy. The support they’ve received along the way has undoubtedly made a difference, and they will surely remember we have called them all sons and daughters. Soon, it will be time for them to give back what they’ve received. For now, though, they will simply take this next step, perhaps thinking of the past, the future, and this strange moment in between. Congratulations, Class of 2014. CAROL KENT Editor The Class of 2014 is a product of community HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY? Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

The Qualls funeral was held rst on Saturday and T/5 Green’s was at 2:30 p.m. the same day with the same funeral home directing. We were fortunate to nd a “ride” into Nashville with a husband and wife, who were family members, after all our duties had been completed. It was our desire to attend the Grand Ole Opry that night, my rst experience and Jim’s second. Our plans worked out beautifully and we saw a full slate of performing stars, with many of them going forward to even greater notoriety in the country and bluegrass music world. For some unknown reason, I listed the names of every individual, or group, on the back of the Special Orders that were issued for each and every escort mission. These envelopes, with all the necessary documents included with every assignment, has been kept, protected and treasured down through these sixtyve years. I hardly ever looked at my historic les, until about forty years ago, when I had a renewed interest in attending music festivals, concerts and shows in the country and bluegrass genre of music. Regular readers know that the Wells Family promoted bluegrass and bluegrassgospel music in Chipley. We also traveled extensively to other festivals. Since the article about not ever having seen Lew Childre, the old les were pulled from the archives when a tribute to all World War II veterans was sponsored by the Town of Wausau and The Garden Club of the town on May 14. Imagine my surprise to see the name Lew Childre. I really don’t know if I heard Lew Childre make his down home, profound statement at the Opry in 1949, or if it appears on his old LP record of radio transcriptions. Since I wrote of Stonewall Jackson’s proclivity to use the vernacular of his upbringing, I now want to include Lew’s statement when someone said a kind word about his entertaining or complimented his family, the reply would be: “Ahhh, you warm my heart and I don’t mean maybe!” My notes made so long ago, tells me that my brother and I heard thirtyone performances during the four-hour session of the world famous Grand Ole Opry on our historic visit in 1949. Ironically, the rst two listed were Curly Fox and Texas Ruby. This husband and wife teamed up early in their careers, with Curly, a ddler from Graysville, Tennessee and Ruby Owens from Fort Worth, Texas, who billed herself as “Radio’s Original Yodeling Cowgirl”. Sadly, this couple, Curly Fox and Texas Ruby, died in their trailer home when re destroyed the structure in Nashville on March 29, 1963. Just three weeks earlier, on March 9, announcer T. Tommy Cutrer opened the Saturday night Opry “ “Ladies and Gentlemen... Ott Devine, manager of the Grand Ole Opry”. A soberfaced Devine came to the microphone, nervously clutching a piece of paper and began: “Thank you. Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, Hawshaw Hawkins, Jack Anglin and Randy Hughes never walked on this stage without a smile. They would want us to keep smiling and to recall the happier occasions. I feel that I can speak for all of them when I say, Let’s continue in the tradition of the Grand Ole Opry”. The ve named individuals met their deaths in a tragic airplane crash a few days earlier while trying to make it back to Nashville during a thunder storm. The Jordanaires came forward to the microphone and sang “How Great Thou Art”. There was a slight pause after the sacred song then Roy Acuff and the Smoky Mountain Boys struck up a fast ddle tune. As he played, Acuff looked over at Minnie Pearl, standing in the wings, crying softly. Their eyes met and she nodded to Roy and he leaned into the microphone and said: “Now, let’s make welcome...Cou-sin...Minnie...Pearl”! It is reported that Minnie Pearl took a deep breath, swallowed hard, forced a smile and made her tripping, dancing entrance as she went into her routine. “It seems a pall has hung over the Grand Ole Opry”, observed one writer. See you all next week on a different subject–I promise.

These aggressive tumors spread rapidly, and once diagnosed, should be taken very seriously. “OSA commonly affects the limbs of large or giant breed dogs, but can also occur in other parts of the skeleton, such as the skull, ribs, vertebrae and pelvis,” said Dr. Rita Ho, veterinary intern instructor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Animals with limb osteosarcoma typically show signs of swelling at the affected side and associated lameness, depending upon the animal’s unique condition and tumor location. The tumors typically form at or near growth plates, and occasionally, the animal will exhibit a growth on their body or painful inammation near the site of the tumor. If swelling does exist, it is likely because of an extension of the tumor into the surrounding tissues. Diagnosis of osteosarcoma is begun with orthopedic and neurologic examinations, a physical examination, and various x-rays. “The biological behavior, prognosis, and treatment of osteosarcoma depend of the primary site, and extent of the disease,” Dr. Ho said. “Therefore, various diagnostic tests such as radiographs (Xrays), blood tests and sometimes a biopsy or ne needle aspirate are required to determine the most appropriate treatment.” Depending on your pet‘s specic condition, there are various treatment options you can consider, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. “Limb OSA commonly causes lameness and pain because of invasion and destruction of normal bone; therefore surgery is usually the rst recommendation,” Dr. Ho said. “The surgery serves two purposes: it removes the primary tumor, which is necessary for cancer control, but it also removes the source of pain and might therefore dramatically improve quality of life.” Surgery often involves amputation of the diseased limb, which completely resolves the pain for your pet. However, for people who are reluctant to have this procedure done, there are other surgical methods to spare the limb if your pet is not a good candidate or if you aren‘t comfortable with the surgery. Just keep in mind that amputation is almost always well tolerated with the dogs, and a threelegged dog can do virtually everything four-legged dogs can. Chemotherapy is administered to a pet following amputation to kill off any remaining cancer cells, and radiation is recommended primarily for relieving bone pain and discomfort. “The average dog with OSA will live only four months if treated with only surgery,” Dr. Ho said. “With chemotherapy following surgery, usually the life expectancy is 10-12 months.” As with any surgery, activity and mobility after the operation will be restricted and pain management programs as well as various medications are typically prescribed for the animal after surgery. However, it is important to remember that you should never administer any pain medication without rst consulting your veterinarian. Unfortunately, osteosarcoma has not been found to be preventable. With thorough examinations and early recognition of the symptoms, however, it can be caught soon enough to take the necessary measures to stop the cancer from spreading and to keep your pet healthy and happy for as long as possible.

Special to The News Three leading military surveys have named Gulf Power Company and its parent company, Southern Company, a top employer for both active duty and military veterans. A longstanding leader in military recruitment, Southern Company is the top-ranked energy compa ny and No. 3 overall in the 2014 DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for Veterans. In addition, the company is the top-ranked energy company and No. 13 over all in the Military Times EDGE Best for Vets: Em ployers 2014 survey and has been named to the Most Valuable Employers for Military winners by CivilianJobs.com for the fth consecutive year. “Veterans are very im portant to us at Gulf Pow er,” said Stan Connally, Gulf Power President and CEO. “They are a natural t for us because the cul tures of both the military and the utility industry exemplify dedication, com mitment to safety, team work and excellence in all they do.” About 15 percent of Gulf Power‘s 1,400 employees are veterans. Currently, 10 percent of the Southern Company system‘s 26,000 employees are veterans or serve in the National Guard or Reserve. Veter ans account for 14 percent of the system‘s new hires this year. Southern Company‘s ongoing support of mili tary personnel has earned broad recognition, includ ing the 2010 Secretary of Defense Employer Sup port Freedom Award — the highest honor given by the Department of Defense for support of employees who serve in the National Guard or Reserve — and the Pro Patria Award for leader ship in providing benets to military employees. G.I. Jobs has named South ern Company the nation‘s highest-ranked utility in its Top 100 Military Friendly Employers listing for sev en consecutive years. As part of its commit ment to veterans, Southern Company also is a found ing partner of the Troops to Energy Jobs program, a recruiting source that links veterans to job openings in the energy industry. The company actively recruits members of the Navy as a Naval Nuclear Propul sion Program partner and has pledged to support the Joining Forces initia tive. In addition, Southern Company annually partici pates in more than 30 mili tary recruitment events and partners with military transition centers across the country. Special to The News At about 1:08 p.m., Wednesday, May 21, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Ofce responded to WalMart in Marianna to a re ported retail theft. Upon arrival, they learned that a member of Wal-Mart’s Asset Protec tion team had witnessed Shane Tolliver Whiteld, a 45-year-old male of Altha, pass the point of sale with 35 items in this buggy that had not been paid for. Among the items was a 32-inch at screen television that the anti-theft device had been removed from. The remain der of the items was cloth ing, household items, etc. Total value of the stolen items was $394.63, which classies it as grand theft. Whiteld was lodged in the Jackson County Correc tional Facility to await rst appearance on charges of grand theft and retail theft. Before the ofcers could get Whiteld secured in the County Jail, they re ceived another retail theft call from Wal-Mart. In that case, Zeno Scott Walther, a 21-year-old male of Mari anna, was arrested after he was observed changing clothes in the men’s depart ment and leaving without paying for the merchandise he was wearing. Walther was lodged in the Jackson County Correctional Facil ity on a charge of petit retail theft.

Arnold hosted Bay, Mosley and Rutherford in four halves of play to close spring football practice. The Rams debuted new coach Rob Armstrong, while Jimmy Longer beam continued as the dean of county coaches at Bay. Arnold held back Bay 15-8 in the opener and Mosley blanked a struggling Rutherford 14-0 in the second half. Bay shut out Ruther ford 18-0 and Mosley bested Arnold 21-6 to complete the jamboree. The teams now enter summer drills with fall practices set to open in early-August. The four teams again are matched in District 1-5A with Mosley securing last season’s county title. Arnold 15, Bay 8 Torri Cotton set the tone for Ar nold with a 73-yard touchdown run on the rst quarter’s second play. He was held to minus-10 yards on his last four carries, but the Mar lins’ offense surged behind quar terback Cody Saunders. Saunders completed 9 of his 13 passes for 110 yards in help ing Arnold control the clock. Arnold added two Austin Pef fers eld goals, the long of 41 against a defense that wasn’t allowed to rush. The Marlins also sacked Bay quarterback Xavier Longerbeam in the end zone for a second-quarter safety. Bay scored its touchdown on its last possession, Lon gerbeam nding Zavian Ever ett down the left sideline for a 35-yard score on rst down. Raekwon Webb added the 2point conversion run with 2:39 to play. Longerbeam nished 4 for 6 for 50 yards while adding 37 yards on the ground. Saunders spread out his completions to six receiv ers with Paul Patterson grabbing a team-high three recep tions for 23 yards. Nicholas Berg man gained 50 yards rushing on four carries in a reserve role. Mosley 14, Rutherford 0 Neither team impressed on of fense, with Mosley earning the victory on the strength of two big plays. Rutherford continued to run the Spread with Armstrong expect ed to install the Wing-T in the fall. Rams quarterback Justin Da vis attempted only three passes despite the wide formation. He completed two passes, one for no gain and the second a 42-yarder to Aaron Hamilton on the Rams’ third possession. Rutherford elected to punt ve times, with the decision resulting in added yardage rather than a live play. The Rams’ other possession ended on downs. Mosley chose to punt once, turned the ball over on downs an other time and lost a fumble on its rst possession. Ezra Gray provided the rst highlight when he took a screen pass from Dillon Brown and raced 48 yards for a score in the second quarter. Gray added 17 yards on four carries. Trey Trzaska also recorded a big gain for 37 yards on a reception on Mosley’s next drive. Jimmy Daniel, who had 48 total yards, capped the march with a 12-yard score. Mosley used four quarterbacks, including rotating Peyton Calhoun and Scott Whitaker on the nal possession. Bay 18, Rutherford 0 Webb spotted the Tornadoes a 6-0 lead on the contest’s rst play, and Longerbeam and receiver Ev erett connected for two passing touchdowns as Bay cruised to the victory. Webb broke loose on the rst play from scrimmage for a 75-yard romp and a near-instant 6-0 lead. Longerbeam hit Everett with a 36-yard scoring strike late in the rst quarter. Everett wrestled a contested ball away from a defend er at the goal line, and he stepped into the end zone to double the Tor nadoes’ lead at 12-0. Longerbeam and Everett teamed up again for a 53-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter for an 18-0 lead with just over three minutes left. Everett used his speed to get behind a pair of defenders, and Longerbeam’s pass hit the receiver in stride for the touchdown. Davis delivered a 33-yard pass to EJ Foster in the rst quarter for the Rams’ biggest play. The Ram offense stalled at Bay’s 32yard line, however, and ultimately turned the ball over on downs. That was the rst of three Rutherford possessions that ended in Tornado territory. Bay endured three fum bles offensively and was fortunate it lost only one. Rutherford fumbled twice but recovere Mosley 21, Arnold 6 Mosley’s offense began the matchup against Arnold with a game of keep-away before Brown and receiver James Lovett gave the Dolphins a lead they would not surrender. Facing fourth-and-25 at Arnold’s 26-yard line, Brown heaved the ball down the left sideline. Lovett ran under the throw and jumped over a defender to cap the Dolphins’ 15-play drive. After an Arnold punt, Daniel raced 55 yards untouched through the middle of the Marlins’ defense for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead for Mosley with 4:38 left in the rst quarter. Peffers kicked a 32-yard eld goal on the Marlins’ ensuing pos session. His attempt was set up by quarterback Cody Saunders’ 50yard pass to Jovanni Perea to the Mosley 15. Daniel posted his second touch down with a 20-yard run and ex tended Mosley’s lead to 21-3 with 10 1/2 minutes left. Peffers netted another 32-yard eld goal midway through the sec ond quarter to provide the game’s nal margin. SPRING FOOTBALL JAMBOREE P atti ATTI BLa A K e E | The News Herald Rutherford’s Quinn Jones tackles Mosley’s Devontia Wilson. SPRING IN THEIR STEP Mosley stands tall in county clash Let it be written that I have no doubt NFL teams supplied players with powerful painkillers and other drugs to keep them playing during their careers that have led to serious health complications later in life. Perry Mason couldn’t make me waver on that. Not even in black and white. Also let it be written that I believe the basis of the lawsuit led last week on behalf of more than 500 explayers that the league put prots ahead of players’ health. Whereas I fully support the lawsuit led for the thousands of retired players accusing the NFL of concealing the risks of concussions and later debilitating life issues — think that the $765 million settlement the league has agreed to pay is not enough — I’m not backing the former players on this one. It seems hypocritical to even write as much, but I can’t get the image of two former players out of my head. Ronnie Lott and Jack Youngblood were warriors in a league of warriors. Although legend has it that Lott told a doctor to amputate his left pinky in the locker room, or maybe it was the defensive huddle, actually it was after the 1985 season when it was crushed while he tackled Dallas running back Timmy Newsome. When told by a doctor that bone graft surgery wouldn’t have enabled Lott to be ready in time for the 1986 opener, he opted to have the tip of the nger amputated. Not quite the stuff that has morphed into lore in the decades since, but still representative of the culture that brackets the professional lives of NFL athletes. Youngblood not only went through the entire 1979 playoffs, which included the Super Bowl, but participated in the meaningless 1980 Pro Bowl with a fractured left bula. That’s called a broken leg in the real world. Which the NFL isn’t. It is comprised of men who not only have incredible physical gifts, but a capacity to endure pain that dwarfs the average human. That they allegedly were given pain-killing drugs by their team doctors to remain on the eld comes as no surprise. Nor does this tidbit: A lot of them knew exactly what they were doing and would do so again. That’s where I take a left turn with the lawsuit. The shield of the warrior, the camaraderie of the teammate, the persona of the macho athlete all ties into this. As a result of masking their pain with drugs, the lawsuit alleges, players developed heart, lung and nerve ailments; kidney failure; and chronic injuries to muscles, bones and ligaments. Probably so. It’s just in this case I don’t know where the responsibility of the player ends, and the culpability of the team begins. I’m sure that attorneys could better explain it to me, but I’m not convinced that I still would get it. After receiving numbing injections and pills before kickoff, players got more drugs and sleep aids after games, “to be washed down by beer,” the lawsuit states. Again, probably so. And this much, too. How many times have you heard NFL players talk about the necessity of learning the difference between injury and pain upon entering the league, or fearing for their job if they didn’t play when hurt? If the intention of the lawsuit is an attempt to change the prevailing culture in the NFL into a more cohesive vision of dealing with injury, then perhaps it is valid. More likely, teams and players always will seek an avenue for them to remain on the eld. What the athletes do need to be informed of, in a more positive manner, is the long-term effect of the drugs they are being given, and be granted better access to more detailed medical records of whatever their condition. They can afford a second opinion. Then they might be able to make a more informed choice. The bottom line is that a group of 20somethings probably would say, in large part, just give me something, doc.

Local A8 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 28, 2014 Special to the News West Florida Electric Cooperative held a meeting for emergency operations center personnel, city per sonnel, re departments and law enforcement agen cies in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson and Washington Counties on Wednesday, May 21. During the meeting, attendees toured the co operative’s service center and saw a rst-hand dem onstration of how coopera tive members can report outages. They also learned about how crews are dispatched and the various ways WFEC personnel commu nicates with members us ing Facebook, Twitter and media outlets. Electrical safety infor mation was also shared with all those in attendance, which is especially impor tant for rst-responders. This annual gathering allows electric coopera tive personnel, EOC and city personnel, re depart ments and law enforce ment to collaborate and share ideas about how to best handle power outages and emergency situations caused by storm damage to the area. “This workshop is vi tal to the success of res toration efforts when our distribution system sus tains catastrophic dam age caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, severe thun derstorms, or other acts of nature. It allows us to dis cuss problems that we’ve encountered in the past and brainstorm about how we can best communicate with emergency personnel throughout the four coun ties we serve,” said Gary Clark, Vice President, and Member Services. Mother Nature is un predictable, so the proper precautions should always be taken by coastal resi dents and others near the coast. With that thought in mind, WFEC encour ages all its members to be weather aware and begin making their annual hurri cane season preparations before it’s too late. The Atlantic Hurricane Season begins on June 1 and will last until Novem ber 30. The peak storm threat usually occurs from mid-August to late October.

Help is available at the Holmes County Public Library in the form of a DVD Stuttering: Straight Talk for Teens. “It’s meant to encourage teens, to tell them that there is hope out there,” said Professor Peter Ramig of the University of Colorado at Boulder. Ramig is one of three nationally recognized experts appearing in the DVD produced by the nonprot Stuttering Foundation. David Wilkins, a high school student who stutters, narrates the DVD. It features students from junior high school through college talking about their experiences with stuttering and what they found to be helpful. They talk openly about the ridicule they faced from classmates and how their stuttering affects their lives. “We really try to emphasize the embarrassment and frustration factor, and we think teens will relate to that,” adds Ramig. He appears in the DVD along with speech-language pathologists Dr. Barry Guitar of the University of Vermont and Dr. Hugo Gregory of Northwestern University. The three experts answer questions about stuttering, refute myths and misconceptions, and present examples of therapy sessions showing how stuttering can be reduced. More than three million Americans stutter, yet stuttering remains misunderstood by most people,” said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation. “Myths such as believing people who stutter are less intelligent or suffer from psychological problems still persist despite research refuting these erroneous beliefs.” Books and DVDs produced by the 66-year-old nonprot Stuttering Foundation are available free to any public library. A library that will shelve them can contact the Foundation at 1-800-9929392, e-mail info@stutteringhelp.org, or visit www. stutteringhelp.org or www.tartarmudez.org Hurricane preparedness workshop held Gary Clark, WFEC Vice President, Member Services & Penny Hagan, Manager, Member Services speak to meeting attendees about how the cooperative handles major outage situations caused by severe weather.

Wednesday, May 28, 2014 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Extra an d Special to The News The Chipley Garden Club was treated to a very entertaining horticultural lesson by Clint Fussell and the premier tour of Fussell’s Rustic Daylily Garden Farm on Thursday, May 22. The garden, which is on Gainer Road, offers more than 600 named varieties of daylilies and many more that are unnamed. All are featured in neat beds scattered with salvia, zinnias, rose bushes, gardenias, Mexican heath and trellised grape vines. A former elementary school teacher, Fussell’s fascination with Hemerocallis, commonly known as daylilies, stemmed from his grandmother Frances Fussell, who has been growing daylilies for more than 50 years in her home gardens. “My vision of the daylily farm was driven by my grandmother’s love of gardening,” Fussell said. “Only two years ago, I purchased my very rst daylily plant, and since then, I’ve gone ‘crazy mad’ for them. It is my ambition to explore the mysteries of hybridization in the future. We are very excited to offer plants to the public this year, and we welcome guests.” The name Hemerocallis comes from Greek words meaning “day” and “beautiful,” which alludes that each ower only lasts one day. Daylilies, which are native to Asia, are often called “the perfect perennial.” They are able to survive with little care once established, are drought-tolerant and have relative few pests and disease problems. With more than 70,000, varieties daylilies come in a rainbow of colors and all kids of combinations, except for blues and white. They are also available in different heights, scents, rufed, tipped, dotted, dusted, speckled, doubles, spiders and some are even “diamond dusted.” Flowers range from 3 to 5 inches. The varieties are endless. “The garden club has been looking forward to visiting Fussell’s garden for several months, and it has truly been worth the wait,” one club member said. “The daylilies are spectacular, and the information Fussell provided on daylily care and gardening will be put to good use in our home gardens. We encourage other garden clubs in the area to visit. Clint is a fountain of daylily information.” The Chipley Garden Club does not meet during the summer months, but members continue to enjoy elds trips and other opportunities. To learn more, call Club President Karen Roberts at 638-9968. Special to The News The Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon May 20 at Pattillo’s Restaurant at the Washington – Holmes Technical Center. Lunch was provided by the students of the Technical Center Culinary Program. President-Elect Wayland Fulford noted that the groundbreaking for the new Kate Smith Elementary School will be at 9:30 a.m. today, May 28. Wayland then introduced the program: LeAnne Bailey Staalenburg, senior vice president and information security manager for Capital City Bank. Stallenburg noted that increasingly, smaller businesses are becoming targets for cybercrime. She offered a number of techniques to protect computer systems from internet criminals. The rst suggestion and one of the most important is to not answer strange emails from people you don’t know. Internet criminals can take over your computer and spread spam from your computer, hack other businesses through your computer, install malware on your computer and take over your email accounts. They can target your computer by sending you an email with an attachment. If you open the attachment, you let them in. Stallenburg suggested that when you get a new computer, set up separate accounts, and change the administrative password on your computer. She also suggested you password-protect your cell phone, and make your passwords much more difcult by using at least eight characters, capital letters, numbers and symbols. Her advice is to gure out a system to establish your passwords, and stick with it. Use different passwords for banking, credit cards and emails. Don’t use easily guessed words. Never share passwords with anyone. Get out of websites if they look or act funny or strange. Use a credit card to shop online rather than a debit card. The credit card provides some protection, and you can get your money back if you are scammed. Block social network sites from your work computer. She also offered clues to a secure website: “https” means it is secure and is good. A lock symbol means it is more secure and better. A green URL bar means it is most secure and is the best. Only have one page open when you are in your bank account. The Kiwanis club meets at noon Tuesdays at Pattillo’s restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or David Solger, membership chairperson, at 6381276. For more information about the Kiwanis Club of Chipley, visit www.ChipleyKiwanis.com.

While touring the touring the city, the group had the opportunity to see two Broadway shows (Wicked & Cinderella), explore Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, travel on a ferry in the waterways surrounding Manhattan, visit the immigrant museum at Ellis Island, tour the iconic Radio City Music Hall and tour Chinatown and Little Italy. The students also participated in a meet the artist event where they were given the opportunity to work with a Broadway casting director to learn effective stage audition techniques. The event complimented with a view of the New York Skyline from the observation deck on the Top of the Rock. “I am extremely proud that my students were able to experience this iconic city and stroll the streets of Broadway. This trip helped to reinforce the concepts taught within my classroom throughout the year. It is my hope that the students have a better understanding of the theatre as an art form. In my opinion, it is extremely important for students to experience things in person that they would otherwise only view in a textbook. I am in hopes that this trip will lead to many more educational excursions in the future for the students of Vernon High School,” VHS Director of Theatre Kevin Russell said. The department has concluded their theatrical season and is in the planning process for next year‘s season.

Jason Bruner JASON BRUNER Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, cousin, and friend, Clyde Stanley went to his nal home May 19, 2014. His unfailing love and devotion to his wife of 62 years, Greta, was an example to his children and grandchildren. To his wife, he was her world; his sons and grandsons, a genius with the ability to x anything or share his knowledge on any subject; to his daughter, daughtersin-law, granddaughters, and sister, he was their hero. Clyde was born Sept. 21, 1929 in Leonia, the only son of Marcus Charles and Emma Alberta Lynn Stanley. He had two sisters Anita (Jerry) Headley, who was so much more than a sister, and Mazie (deceased 1939). Married to Greta Barrow September 1951, this union brought a legacy of love through their children and following generations. Children: Diane Green, Joseph (Linda) Stanley, Mark (Dena) Stanley; grandchildren, Shanna Green, Cory (Kim) Green, Chelsea Burlison, Amber Ebersole, Ashley (Jeff) Briggs, Brydon Stanley, April (Ray Higuera) Stanley, and Marcus Stanley; step grandchildren Kevin and Brody Woodling, nine great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Clyde was proud to have served his country retiring with 21 years active duty in the Air Force as a C124 (Ol’ Shakey) ight engineer and 21 years civil service retiring from Hill AFB, UT as an aircraft maintenance supervisor. Clyde was small in stature but a GIANT in the things that matter most, his endless love of God, family, friends, fellowman, and all animals. He was honorable, just, and fair. He was a humble man, true to his southern roots, and proud of his heritage. He was a quiet, wise man of few words but could speak volumes with a hug, a smile, a twinkle in his eyes or the raise of one eye brow. He enjoyed many activities; antique cars (having rebuilt a prize winning ‘56 Thunderbird), NASCAR, all sports (football being top of his list), riding ATVs on dirt or the sand dunes, even at age 84. Clyde died living where and doing what he loved. He continues to live on through the hearts of those who loved him.
