Beeco gave her report when the council met in regular session Tuesday. “Most vendors leave between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. due to the heat and health issues, and (the number of) customers have dropped off, too,” said Beeco. “I’m hoping to get two large fans out there to get the air cir culating. I just want to see the ea market grow for our city.” Alex Thompson, min ister for the local men’s ministry and rehabilitation, came before the council to inform them that they have started a farmer’s market and to request the water be turned on at the facil ity. Several months ago, Thompson approached the council about his recent purchase of the old prison work camp in Caryville with the intentions of turn ing the facility into a men’s ministry and rehabilitation center. He said there are strict guidelines for those who attend the center, and sex offenders of any kind are prohibited. After much discus sion, the Council agreed to charge Thompson a $100 connection fee and a at rate fee of $200 a month for 12 months, with the rates increasing after that period of time. Chair Henry Chambers also informed the council he may have found nanc ing to replace the roof of the Caryville Civic Center. “It is important that we replace that roof,” said Chambers. “It is an asset to our community, and it is an income for our town.” By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Y — Members of the Chipley City Council quickly wrapped up their regular meeting Tuesday night after hearing from residents of Chestnut Street who protest the location of the proposed driveway for a new convenience store (see separate story, Page A1 ). Council members also heard from Chipley Rede velopment Agency Presi dent Ted Everett, who asked the council to give a formal vote regarding two improvement grants the CRA has available. Everett pointed out the city had previously agreed to support the grants but had not actually voted on them. The grants in question are a Special Improvement Grant intended to help cover facade improvements such as painting and awning and door replacements for resi dents within the CRA dis trict, and a $6,000 commer cial grant, geared to making electrical improvements for businesses within the CRA district. Everett pointed out the city and CRA needs to con sider bundling the grants due to lack of interest from local contractors, making it difcult for residents to re ceive two bids as required by grant guidelines. Council members agreed to take Everett’s suggestion allow the CRA to reopen the bid process. In other action, council members heard audit re sults for the 2012 2013 s cal year, conducted by Carr, Riggs, & Ingram. “The city is in good shape,” said the representa tive, whose only advice was for some existing debt to be renanced at lower rates. Council members also approved renewing the non-exclusive franchise to Waste Management, Inc. of Florida for the collection and disposal of residential and commercial solid waste collection. This contract is in effect until May 31, 2017.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, July 12, 2014 National industry has seen revenue decline By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn jhenderson@pcnh.com EBRO — Greyhound racing will continue at the track here despite predictions from some racing experts that it is a dying indus try, the track president said Wednesday. “Our plan is to continue dog racing,” said Stocky Hess, Ebro Greyhound Park president. Betting on live racing has fall en from almost $1 billion in 1990 to $258 million last year in Florida, home to 12 of the 21 U.S. tracks that regularly hold live dog races. Hess said the track’s handle is up, and it is committed to offering live greyhound racing. The owners of many tracks — along with ghost tracks that now offer only simulcast racing — are aiming to survive long enough for states to let them drop dog racing alto gether and just run casinos. Hess said if the state allows slot machines to go into the tracks, the Ebro track would “absolutely” still continue dog racing. Marc Dunbar, a Tallahassee attorney whose practice focuses on gaming and gov ernment law, said there are several politi cal factors at work that he believes eventu ally will lead to the end of dog racing in the state. “If I was telling my kids an industry to get into for their future, it would not be breeding greyhounds,” he said. Revenues from live greyhound racing have been declining over the years, but track ofcials say revenues from simul cast racing and poker have eased the sting somewhat. Track owners have long wanted to be allowed to install slot machines at the tracks to bolster their revenues. Florida, which in 1931 was the rst state to legalize wagering on greyhound racing, opted against a measure in its most recent legislative session that would have allowed tracks to keep poker and slots and ditch the racing, a prospect known as “decoupling.” But the plan, which proponents hope to revive in the 2015 legislative session, is seen as an expansion of gambling and faces opposition from gambling opponents and other competitors. Dunbar said the conservative leadership in the state Legislature is opposed to an expansion of gaming in the state, and they view allowing slot machines at dog tracks as just that. “I think any gaming bill that passed will encourage some phase-out of greyhound racing,” he said. And if the state allowed slot machines at dog tracks, it stands to lose $277 million a year, which was negotiated in a compact agreement between former Gov. Charlie Crist and the Seminole Tribe, Dunbar said. If slot machines were allowed at dog tracks, it would not generate nearly as much for the state as the revenues from the Seminole compact, Dunbar said. “We have eight facilities (with slot ma chines) operating in South Florida, and all eight of them don’t produce as much as the Seminole Tribe does,” he said. “The com pact says any expansion outside of the eight existing facilities in Dade and Broward will shut off the Seminole’s payments.” Senate President Don Gaetz said Wednesday he could not predict whether legislation will be introduced in the next legislative session to allow slot machines at dog tracks or decoupling. “I have never been a supporter of ex panded gambling, but I would support and have supported decoupling,” he said. He said he wouldn’t mind if dog racing ended, as there are many instances of in humane treatment of greyhound dogs at tracks throughout the state, including at Ebro. Some dog owners and trainers say they favor slots going into the tracks as long as the law would require the tracks to continue to have dog races. In fact, they said the slot machines could bolster at tendance at the track and the greyhound races. Teresa Duncan, who owns several dogs that race at Ebro, said if more people watched greyhound racing, it would dispel the perception the animals are abused. Duncan, who adopts the dogs that she rac es, said the animals enjoy racing. “They are born with a job to do, a job that they love to do,” she said. Joe Watson, a trainer of dogs that run at Ebro, said he is concerned about the future of dog racing. “I’ve got over 100 greyhounds,” he said. The concern could be quelled if a law were passed allowing slots at tracks but re quired live dog races, he said. But Dunbar said he doesn’t envision leg islation of that type passing. Dunbar said some conservative legisla tors feel the best way for dog racing to go away is to not allow the tracks to have slot machines and let them keep operating as they now are. Hess said he hopes after the next elec tion the governor negotiates a new deal with the Seminole Indians that allows other games at tracks to bolster revenues, be it slot machines or blackjack or both. In 2012, six counties voted to have slot machines, including Washington County where Ebro is located, but they have not been able to obtain permits from the state to open the slots. Hess said that is a shame. “If they were permitted for slot machines just in the six counties alone, we’d probably produce somewhere in the neighborhood of 6,000 new jobs and revenues of some where in the neighborhood of $50 million to $100 million,” he said.

Ebro track president: Racing to continue erty,” said Don Steverson. “This property has been in my wife’s family for 80 years. And for longer than that, the residents of this neighborhood have raised families there and partici pated in civic affairs. The trafc and trash problem is already bad, and this will ruin our street.” Winona VanLandingham agreed, stating the entry way would lower property values and make it difcult to sell or lease any existing property. Although not re quired by law, VanLanding ham and other residents also protested the lack of formal notication by the city and demanded the city resend the development order. Residents suggested changing the access road to State Road 77, but Travis Howell of the project’s engi neering rm, Alday-Howell Engineering, stated Florida Department of Transporta tion requirements prevent ed them from doing so. In response, residents continued to focus on what they say was lack of proper notication. “It would have cost less than $50 to send us all a letter as a courtesy,” said Steverson. “Whether it’s required or not, that would have been the right thing to do.” City Attorney Michelle Taggert advised the coun cil and residents the city is now bound to follow the or der. “I don’t know that you have the authority to with draw,” said Taggert. Mayor Linda Cain re minded those in attendance the information about the project was advertised in the newspaper and report ed by local media, but ex pressed her desire to listen to the residents’ concerns. “I know we can’t do any thing about it, but we still need to hear what they have to say,” said Cain, who also reminded residents all issues are discussed in council meetings, and citi zens are invited to attend so they can stay informed. Norma Jean Steverson, whose parents each served as city council members, became emotional when she addressed the council. “We just had no chance for input,” she said. “It’s a moral thing at this point. It’s a terrible thing to do to a street of people who have lived there their whole lives.” STORE from page A1 CAro RO L K en EN T | The News Don Steverson (below) was among several Chestnut Hill residents protesting the proposed location of the store’s access road, stating the driveway will be just ten ft. from his property. Above, Steverson’s property ends at the utility pole, and the driveway is proposed to begin where the grass ends.

State retains counsel over failed Digital Domain deal From staff reports Gov. Scott’s General Counsel Peter Antonacci announced Wednesday that outside legal counsel has been retained by the Department of Economic Opportunity to le suit against Digital Domain and related parties. “The (Inspection Gen eral) investigation into the 2009 Digital Domain deal revealed that the usual state regulatory processes were circumvented to give Digital Domain tens of millions of dollars in tax payer funds,” said General Counsel Peter Antonacci. “The collapse of the Digital Domain project, which was promoted by the previous administra tion, then left Florida tax payers on the hook. The state has hired outside counsel to identify any and all legal action avail able against the company and any other individuals involved in wrongdoing related to this bad deal. We expect to announce specic legal action in the coming weeks.” In March 2013, the Florida Chief Inspector General issued a report on the 2009 incident where Florida improperly provid ed $20 million in incentive funding to Digital Domain under the premise that 500 jobs would be created in St. Lucie County. Digital Domain ultimately cre ated zero jobs and led for bankruptcy in September 2012.

Bush with the Certied County Commissioner designation following Commissioner completion of a compre hensive study program de veloped by the association. Commissioner Bush re ceived the designation with 41 other county commis sioners during an awards ceremony at the FAC An nual Conference in Orange County. “I’m very grateful for the Florida Association of Coun ties and the training oppor tunities they offer,” Bush said. “It is a great organiza tion that singly offers a wide range of training programs to new and veteran Florida commissioners.” CCC certication is not a requirement to serve as a county commissioner in Florida. However, county commissioners voluntarily can enroll in the program and complete a series of courses totaling 42 hours. The coursework is designed to provide information and enhance skills relevant to a commissioner’s duties and responsibilities as an elect ed ofcial. ”This certication al lows our citizen electorate to become experts in county government improving their communities,” FAC Execu tive Director Chris Holley said. “The 380 graduates of this program is a testament to the importance of this cur riculum to Florida’s public servants and our counties” The CCC program coursework covers a variety of topics, such as county gov ernment roles and responsi bilities, county government structure and authority, nancial management, ethics and sunshine law, negotia tion skills, economic devel opment, and effective com munication. Completion of all coursework averages 12 to 18 months. The Universi ty of Florida/IFAS Extension sponsors this program.

Local A6 | Washington County News Saturday, July 12, 2014 By LAUREN DELGADO 315-4406 | @LaurenDnwfdn ldelgado@nwfdailynews.com Mark and Luoma Franks admit their garden may not be everyone’s cup of tea. There’s no sod, just dense, unmanicured plants along gravel pathways. It isn’t strange to see a snake slithering by. Bugs feast on fruit held in feeders. “My back yard is not a place you want to be at night,” Mark said with a laugh. Although many locals already share their yards with wildlife, some design their gardens to be ideal wildlife habitats. “There is a balance, however, between what I like aesthetically and then what I’m going to share with the creepy crawlies around me,” Luoma said. The National Wildlife Federation certifies gardens that meet certain criteria as wildlife habitats. The program started in 1973 as a way to help wildlife in the wake of dwindling habitats as well as encourage people to get out and enjoy nature, said David Mizejewski of the National Wildlife Federation. “People can take action and see results right outside their door,” Mizejewski said. For the Franks, the certification came easy. They were already avid gardeners who had done some research on attracting butterflies and other critters. “There’s such a decrease in certain types of wildlife because we’re tearing up their home,” Mark said. “If we can develop our own properties to give them more of a habitat, hopefully it will help them increase the numbers again.” SHARING YOUR YARD WITH A squirrel eats a piece of an apple at Luoma and Mark Franks’ garden. A milkweed plant, which attracts Monarch butteries, blooms in the Franks’ garden. PHOTOS BY NICK TOTO MECEK | Halifax Media Group Luoma and Mark Franks pose in their garden at their Fort Walton Beach home. The couple’s garden is a certied wildlife garden. Native PP lants Native plants are key in your garden, Mizejewski said. He dened them as plants that have lived and evolved in a certain area for hundreds of years. They in turn are in sync with the area’s other creatures. Many ornamental plants simply have no habitat value for native organisms, Mizejewski said. “Gardens are no longer just something pretty that you look at outside your window,” Mizejewski said. “Gardens are being seen as a more important part of the urban and suburban ecosystem.” There’s an innite number of ways to fulll the four basic needs of wildlife: food, water, cover and a place to raise their young, Mizejewski said. Taking stock of your garden is a good rst step. “Everybody is probably doing these things,” Mizejewski said. “You probably don’t even know it.” 1. FOOD Feeders are a simple way of providing a food source, but plants can be even better — and more sustainable, said Mizejewski (“there’s no need to rell a berry bush”). More than 95 percent of birds rely on insects for food. Certain plants will attract those insects. “What we really want people to do is think holistically,” Mizejewski said. 2. WATe E R Adding a pond or bird bath can serve as a water source if there isn’t a natural one on your property. 3. COVe E R Wildlife are just like people — they need cover from weather. Both prey and predators also need cover to hide, Mizejewski said (for different purposes, of course). Plants serve a purpose in this category as well. Mizejewski suggested creating a “living fence” along your property line by densely planting. Roost boxes or brush piles are other examples of cover. 4. A A PLAce CE TO RAi I S e E THei EI R YOUn N G Many places that provide cover also provide a place for animals to raise young. Bird houses or nesting boxes are some common examples of places for animals to raise young. Certain animals have different requirements than when they’re older. Tadpoles need a pond; certain caterpillars can eat only from specific plants. TT hings to provide Hanna Joensuu wanted to do her part to make a healthier environment for all living things right in her own back yard. When she moved to her Shalimar home 15 years ago, there was only a lawn and a few trees. “This evolved over the years,” Joensuu said. “We let nature take over certain areas.” The natural areas of the garden are the easy parts, Joensuu said. Maintaining fruit trees and vegetables gets more involved. Native plants make up much of the garden. They’ve seen coyote, butteries, skinks, turtles, armadillo, possum, raccoon, squirrels, foxes, bears and even a bald eagle in their back yard. “There’s so much diversity,” she said. DD ENNIS S C URL URL E Y Y | Special to The News Dennis Curley and his wife don’t see their back yard as a garden. They see it more as a natural area. The Niceville couple have left it wooded and natural, but added a pool, fountains and some other features. Dennis learned about the wildlife habitat certication program from a neighbor. It’s not difcult as long as you have areas wildlife can breed and get water. They’ve seen turtles, snakes, birds and squirrels. Even an alligator called their pool home — but was summarily sent back to the state park. “If you enjoy nature and you enjoy wildlife, it’s an opportunity to protect it and enhance it,” Curley said. ‘It’s an opportunity …’ ‘We let nature take over …’

Police say drug deal led to homicide By JENNIFER HARWOOD 747-5073 | @The_News_Herald jharwood@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — A 20-year-old man was shot to death early Friday in what police said was a drug deal gone bad. The victim was identi ed as Ryan Brooks. Three people were in custody Thursday night, but had not been charged, police said. Panama City Beach police re sponded to a call at 1 a.m. of reported gunshots at The Club apartment complex off Richard Jack son Boulevard. When police arrived, they found Brooks on the ground in the parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds. EMS took Brooks to a local hospital, but he was pronounced dead 35 minutes later. “This is the rst homi cide we’ve had in four or ve years,” said Panama City Beach Police Chief Drew Whitman. The homicide is be lieved to be drug-related, since narcotics were re covered at the scene. Brooks was previously ar rested in 2012 for posses sion of marijuana with in tent to distribute, to which he pleaded no contest and was sentenced to proba tion last month. “We have three people of interest we have detained that we are questioning,” Whitman said. Police also have obtained warrants to search the residences where they were located. Identities of the three were not released. J.R. Trotter, a Club resi dent, believes he may have crossed paths with the vic tim just moments before the shooting occurred. “It’s weird that I was right near it,” he said. Trotter had the night off from his job as an over night stocker at Wal-Mart. He said he got bored and walked to the nearby Chev ron to buy a Red Bull. On the walk home, Trot ter noticed a young male sitting in a vehicle parked in front of the gated com plex’s leasing ofce. He no ticed the interior lights on inside the car, but thought nothing of it. In the same moment, Trotter passed a male and female on foot headed in the direction of the parked car. He nodded “hello” to the couple and continued to walk to his apartment in the back of the complex. “I never heard the gunshots,” Trotter said. He was listening to music with earbuds as he walked home from the store. He said he nally real ized something had hap pened when he later heard a helicopter circling the vicinity. Panama City Beach po lice were assisted by a Bay County Sheriff’s Ofce helicopter and K-9 unit to search for suspects. Two men who are being ques tioned were picked up at two locations in Panama City, one on 17th Street and another on Arthur Avenue. Police also have a woman in custody. A couple hours after his rst trip, Trotter decided to walk to the store again. This time, he walked past the same parking lot barricaded with po lice cars and yellow tape. An ofcer approached Trotter as he passed to ask if he’d seen anything prior to the shooting. Trotter described his earlier encounter, un aware at the time that someone had died from the incident. Trotter said he was asked by an investigator to identify a male suspect. “It’s one of them shock ers,” he said, seeming unfazed by what hap pened. He described The Club as a “calm and peaceful” place to live, but said he saw homicides “all the time” where he is originally from in Rome, Ga. “I don’t care what the situation was, I feel bad for whoever got shot,” he said. “A couple more minutes, and it could have been me.” P atti ATTI BLa A K e E | The News Herald The entrance to the apartment complex is seen Thursday. RYAN BROOKS Homicide victim Local Washington County News | A7 Saturday, July 12, 2014 From staff reports The Jackson County Sheriff’s Ofce reports three notable arrests made last weekend. Deputies were dispatched to the Kindall Lanes bowling alley in Marianna on Saturday, July 5, in reference to a miss ing juvenile. Upon arrival, it was reported to responding deputies that the juvenile, a 15-year-old female, had ran away from a reworks display in neighboring Gads den County and was present at the bowl ing alley with and adult male, identied as Joseph Mejia, 18, of Sneads. Upon ar rival, deputies made contact with Mejia and the juvenile. During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Me jia had taken the juvenile away from the event without the consent of her guardian. It was further discovered that Mejia had an ongoing relationship with the juvenile and had been warned multiple times in the past to stay away from her. As a result, Mejia was placed under arrest for inter ference with child custody. zzz The following day, July 6, about 7 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the Habitat for Humanity store at 4736 Highway 90 in Marianna, in reference to a suspicious ve hicle. When deputies attempted to make contact with the occupants, the vehicle abruptly pulled onto Panhandle Road and traveled south, across Highway 90 in a careless manner, and into the parking lot of Beal’s Outlet. A trafc stop then was performed on the vehicle, and contact was made with the driver, Shon Marie Massey, 40, of Marianna. A narcotics detection K-9 unit responded and was deployed to perform a “free-air sniff” around the vehicle. The K-9 alerted to the odor of narcotics emit ting from the interior of the vehicle, and a probable cause search was conducted. The search revealed a purse belonging to Massey containing cocaine, methamphet amine, and several paraphernalia items, including a metal paraphernalia pipe with residue. Massey was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. zzz Shortly after noon July 7, deputies ar rived at an address on Lovewood Road in Jackson County in reference to infor mation that a person wanted on a Wash ington County warrant was residing at the residence. Upon arrival, contact was made with Charles William Shumaker, 41, of Cottondale. It soon was conrmed Shu maker had an active violation of probation warrant in Washington County. At the time of contact, Shumaker reportedly was behaving erratically and appeared to be under the inuence of some type of substance. After being advised of his rights, Shumaker ad vised he had been using methamphet amine. Shumaker directed a K-9 deputy to the bedroom he occupied in the home and showed him the location of a zippered case containing suspected methamphetamine in liquid and solid form, syringes, and various other drug paraphernalia. Shumaker was arrested pursuant to the Washington County warrant. He also is charged in Jackson County on felony drug charges for possession of parapher nalia and possession of a controlled sub stance. Shumaker was lodged in the Jack son County Correctional Facility to await rst appearance. Attorney General Pam Bondi names 4 to statewide council on human trafcking Special to The News Attorney General Pam Bondi announced the ap pointment of four mem bers to the newly created Statewide Council on Hu man Trafcking.

My colleagues and I are also working together on an international level to combat this abhorrent crime.” Human Trafcking touches every corner of our state and Florida con tinues to rank third in the number of calls received by the National Human Trafcking hotline. “Florida’s Human Trafcking victims would be invisible, if not for the commitment of advocacy groups and our law en forcement community. Awareness, and raising awareness, are the rst steps toward eliminat ing this modern sexual slavery. I am proud that our effort in Miami to cre ate an innovative trauma informed prosecution model for Human Traf cking cases may become a model for the state and the country. I would like to thank the Attorney Gen eral for appointing me to this important statewide role on the Human Traf cking Council,” State At torney Fernandez Rundle said. “The trafcking of hu man beings is an act so inhumane that no civi lized society can rest un til all vestiges of it are eradicated.

Is going to a rodeo on your list of summe r plans this year? Rode os are lots of fun for kids and adults This week, The Mini Pa ge goes to the rodeo to find out more about this enter taining sport. Rodeo history An ance stor of the horse s we know toda y (Equus) lived on our conti nent millions of years ago But at some point those early horse s crossed a land bridge into Asia and Europe Fo r many years there were no horse s at all in North America. About 500 years ago Spanish explo rers brough t horse s bac k to the Americas They also brought cattle Nort h American cowboys used horse s to round up the wild cattle (“Rod eo” means roundup in Spanish.) Ame ric an an d Span ish cowbo ys or vaque ros (vah-C AIRohs ), learn ed to rop e an d ti e the cattle as they were her ding them .T hey had to brea k or tam e, wild horses to use them for work. Soo n the y began comp eting aga inst eac h oth er in contests of cowboy skills Horses compete in ne arl y every rodeo eve nt. Th e most popula r type of hors e for rodeo is the Am eric an quart er horse Rodeo horses require a lot of care. Their exercise includes trotting up and down hills to build their stamina. They must be fed healthy food and have plenty of wate r. Some horses are bre d espec ial ly for their eve nts. For examp le, bre ede rs raise and trai n some horses to be buck ing bron cos for bronc ridi ng eve nts Bulls are the bigge st of the rodeo animals. They are used only in bullridin g events. Steers or male cattle that have been neutered, are used for timed steer wrestling, steer roping and team roping events. Cal ves o r young cattle, are use d for the tie-dow n ropin g event This time d eve nt ori gin ate d wit h cowb oys cat chi ng cat tle to giv e them medi cine Rodeo livestock steal the show Bull rider Tate Stratton comes out of the chute at the 2012 Wrangle r National Fin al s R o de o. Every bull has a differe nt bucking pattern Cowboys and rodeo clowns study the anima ls to get an idea of how they buck. Some may spin more than others, dart to the left or right, or jump straigh t up in the air. Bulls weigh around 2,000 pounds, so bull ridin g is a dangero us and exciting even t. image courtesy University of Houston Libraries An early cowboy photo by Tom Donoghue, courtesy PRCA from The Mini Page 2014 Universal Uclick Ju stin Rumf ord is a rodeo cl own. He works from Ja nuary throug h Novem ber tra veling around the count ry to entertain crowds and prote ct cowboys in the ring He spoke with The Mini Pa ge about his work. MP What does a rodeo cl own do? JR :T he rodeo cl own helps the announ cer entertain the crowd and make sure they ha ve a great time During the bull ridin g, th e cl own has a ser ious role He is calle d a barrel man and he work s insid e a barrel that he can move around. The barre ls we use are made of aircraft aluminum. They are padd ed inside and out and are almost imposs ible to get hurt in. I ha ve only had mino r injuri es comp eting and none cl owning At eac h rodeo there is only one cl own. Ther e are two bullfighte rs who take the role of cowb oy protection .T he bullf ighters distract the bull (after the rider has fallen off) until the cowboy can get to safet y. What about the anima ls? Some people protest that rodeos are cruel to animals Accord ing to the Profe ssional Rodeo Cowboys Association, it and other rodeo organizati ons work toget her with breeders and trainer s to make sure that rodeo animals are cared for humanely. A veterinaria n or animal doctor, must be at every rodeo event to examin e animals befor e their event s and to treat any injur ed animals. Cowboy s are not allowed to be overl y rough with animals during their events. They will be disquali fied if they break this rule. Steers’ horns are wrappe d with a prote ctive covering durin g their event s. Straps for bulls and bucking bronc os must be soft. Mee t a Rodeo Clo wn MP : How did you start clowning? JR : I ha ve been involved in rodeo my whole life I went to college on a rodeo sc holarship I started cl owning four years ago to try something new I’ve alw ay s been a joker! MP : What should kids know about rodeo ? JR : I want kids to know about the livestock. Some people say you have to hurt animals to make them buck, but that is not true at all. Horses and bulls have been bred to buck for the last 75 years. These animals are great athletes that their owners take great pride in! Spurs, or metal attachm ents to cowboys’ boots, must be dull.

A10 | Washington County News Saturday, July 12, 2014 I must confess to a severe case of poverty. I never took a vow of poverty; it just seems to have worked out that way for me. I am so poor the church mice have packed their bags and moved on. If I knew where they moved to, I might join them. Being poor can have its advantages, but I have yet to run across any. I am so poor I am not able to pay attention, especially when watching some television program with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. This has caused no small problem with my wife. We love an evening of unwinding before the TV watching some of our favorite programs. I must confess those programs are getting less and less each year. Soon we are going to have to go back to reading books. Together we will be watching a program, and when I say “we,” I do it with certain modications. My wife will get up and go to the kitchen for something and when she returns, she asks me a question, “What happened?” I look at her with one of my infamous quizzical looks and respond, “Where?” She then explains she is talking about what happened on the TV program while she was away. I then tell her, “I’m sorry, I wasn’t paying attention.” This seems to be a source of real frustration for her. “If you can’t afford to pay attention,” she will say sarcastically while rolling her eyes, “couldn’t you at least rent some attention some time?” I tried explaining to her that old age is making me a little more forgetful. She, however, is not buying it, so there goes my income stream. For me, watching television is not an obsession; it is more like a distraction. I do not follow every little bit on the television screen. For me it is not a matter of life or death, it is just a matter of recreation. I know that nothing on TV is real. We can be in the middle of the next program and I do not realize that the rst program has ended. Talk about confusing! When something does catch my attention, boy does it have my attention. “Did you,” I ask my wife, “hear that?” Then it is role reversal in prime time. I will not say she acts like me, just that it comes pretty close to it. Not quite Oscar material, but close. “What?” She said with a very confused look on her face. So I had to explain the news story that I just happened to catch. I do not know all of the details, I was not paying that much attention, just that someone was red from their job for saying to a customer, “Have a blessed day.” I have met many customer service people that said things that I would want them to be red from, but this has never been on my list. My wife then asked the question I was thinking. “What is wrong with telling someone to have a blessed day?” I could not gure it out. It is like at Christmas time some places do not want their employees to say to the customer, “Merry Christmas.” The reasoning is, it might offend someone. What about us who are offended when somebody does not say Merry Christmas to us? This matter of being offended can go both ways. There should be an equal offended person law. There is a law for everything else. I just would like to meet the person who is offended by somebody saying to them, “Have a blessed day.” Later that evening I was watching a new crime/detective story on TV and all of a sudden, I heard some words that were offensive. They were saying curse words that I have never heard on TV before. I have always believed that if you have to use curse words, it is because your vocabulary is drastically lacking in intellectual responses to the world around you. Here is my dilemma. Why can you say curse words on TV, which everybody knows is scripted, but you cannot say, “Have a blessed day,” without getting red? If I was in business I would want my employees to greet my clients with a cheerful, “Have a blessed day” and not some awful curse words. I was complaining about this to a friend of mine who explained to me that curse words on television are considered “literary license.” Who is paying for that license I am wondering. All of this has to do with the PC syndrome in our country today. The problem is what was PC yesterday is no longer PC today. Who knows what tomorrow’s PC will be. What I cannot accept is the fact that being crude and rude is PC and saying something nice is not. Have we reverted to the caveman mentality? Is being nice is no longer acceptable behavior? I like what David says, “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name” (Psalms 103:1). Perhaps the reason people are offended by that phrase is because they know that only God has the power to bless. If I am being blessed by God, I am going to turn around and bless people around me.
