WCSB moves forward with sales tax By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County School Board gave Superintendent Joseph Taylor the green light to draft a resolution to place the halfcent sales tax on the November ballot during their August 11 meeting. Taylor will work on the resolution with County Attorney Jeff Goodman, and it will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners for their approval when they meet in regular session August 28. If placed on the ballot, the referendum would require a majority approval from voters. If passed, the levy would begin in January and last for a period of ten years. The tax is expected to generate about $1,281,546 in revenue and will be used to fund capital outlay and technology projects. Board members also heard from Perry McCall Construction regarding the building of the new facilities at Vernon Elementary School. The rm reported the project is complete and nished both on time and on budget. The board also discussed the Kate M. Smith Elementary School project, with Greg Kelly of CRA Architects stating the rm hopes to see dirt moving on the site sometime in October or November. Were down to the nuts and bolts (of pre-planning) and have DEP permits in hand, said Kelly. We will be here each month with updates. Seven rms have submitted application to serve as construction manager for the project, and the board will begin interviews next month. Roulhac Middle School teacher Greta Draayom also addressed the board, expressing concern regarding basic maintenance and cleaning at the campus, such as the need for an ef cient way to clean cobwebs from the hurricane shutters, pressure washing to clean away mold and mildew, and following up with the schools janitorial service. Draayom stated a cleaning checklist was placed in her classroom at the end of the school year, but the list is still blank, despite the apparent work that has taken place by the janitorial service. The board told the service they would follow up, but the list hasnt For the love of Maely Community rallies for local infant By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Five month old Maely White came into the world facing the ght of her life, and several local residents are making sure the infant has plenty of support as she battles a mysterious illness that has doctors from all over the state at a loss. Maely was born at Jackson Hospital in Marianna in March to Decoya White and Kristy Aycock of Chipley. Within an hour, she couldnt breath on her own and was placed on a ventilator. Vernon joins WFRPC By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com VERNON Vernon City Council kept the agenda short when they met in regular session Monday, Aug. 11. Council members voted to join the West Florida Regional Planning Council (WFRPC), paying a $522.26 yearly membership fee. WFRPC, a multi-purpose regional entity recognized RED RIDING HOOD DID HER JOB Blackfoot Tribe leaders visit Seacrest to ght ignorance By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT Cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The spiritual leader of the Blackfoot Native Americans tribe traveled from Montana to Washington Countys Seacrest Wolf Preserve to commune with the wolves and meet with preserve owners Wayne and Cynthia Watkins this week. Leader Jimmy St. Goddard says the purpose of his visit is in part to aid in presenting signatures at the Capitol in Tallahassee demanding an investigation into the shooting death of one of the preserves wolves, Chaco, earlier this year. Nearly four months ago, after a devastating ood brought on by heavy rains tore down fencing at Seacrest Wolf Preserve, Chaco left the property. Several days later, he was found near Roulhac Middle School in Chipley, and was shot and killed by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Goddard states the commission violated the religious freedoms of the Blackfoot Nation, as well as those of other Native Americans. The killing of the wolf in America is a violation against the Indian Freedom of Religious Act, said Goddard. Weve been following the natural course of things, but thanks to the ignorance of many people, not knowing how precious this animal is, theyre not listening. So we need to take another bold step. That step is visiting with Floridas leaders to discuss the protection of not only the wolves, but also Floridas panthers. Goddard joined the Watkinses and other supporters in a visit to Governor Rick Scott Tuesday to make the request. Goddard also held a ceremony for the Seacrest wolves, dressing in full ceremony attire as he communed with the wolves for the rst time. Its living a dream, he said. Last year we did a ceremony for the buffalo during the government shut down, and it went through all the news of the Northwest. All we were doing was performing something for the wildlife. We have proved the Indian Freedom of Religious Act, which will be (stressed to Floridas leaders). Were striving for the protection of animals and speaking on their behalf. This is bigger than all of us, he added. Im just a messenger; Ive been doing the same in the Northwest. It was a violation for Florida Fish and Wildlife to kill Chaco; they could have brought him home, but their misconception of him being dangerous and their fear led them to kill him.

TAX from page A1 would lead to peace and that he was merely abolishing the fear brought on by ignorance. The people of Chipley have good hearts, but Little Red Riding Hood has done her job, because we are now all afraid of the wolf, said Goddard. We are going backwards, but we need to let the wolf and nature bring us forward with the biggest gift God has given us: love. It is an honor for a Blackfoot to be in Indian country, visiting Seacrest Wolf Preserve.

Local Washington County News | A3 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Soon, she was transported to a hospital in Tallahassee, where she stayed for a week before being own to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. She stayed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) there for a total of six weeks, said Aycock. She had to have a gastrotomy tube put in so that she could eat because she couldnt eat and breath at the same time, but we were eventually able to go home. We were home for about two months, and she started having more problems and was admitted back to Shands, where she started having seizures and coded on two different occasions. More hospital stays followed over the course of the next several weeks in what Aycock describes as a vicious cycle of frustration and worry for her young daughter as doctors struggle to look for answers. Shes literally had a million dollar work up, said Aycock. Shes had every test imaginable, everything the doctors could think of to nd out whats wrong. At this point, theyre saying theres nothing more they can really do, so were taking her home to where all of our family is. Aycock says Maelys periodic loss of oxygen to the brain has led to brain damage, so she doesnt respond like most ve month olds but she still knows when her loved ones are near. Shes just a sweet baby who loves to be held, said Aycock. Two local fundraisers have been scheduled to help offset the familys medical expenses. The rst is a hamburger plate lunch set to take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Friday, Aug. 15 at Gulf Power in Chipley. Plates are $8 and can be pre-ordered by calling 415-4242. Local photographer Tabatha Phillips will also host a fundraiser with all proceeds going toward Maely and her family. Phillips and other volunteers will be at Blue Lake Park in Chipley from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20 doing mini-photography sessions for a discounted price. The event will also feature an auction and bake sale. For more information, call (334) 714-8374. Phillips says she felt led to help in some way because of her own, similar experience. I lost my son, Johnnie, when he was just ve years old after an extended illness, said Phillips. I know how important it is to be able to not worry so much about medical expenses during dif cult times so that you can focus more on spending time with your child. Ayock says she and her family are touched by the concern of the community. Im quite overwhelmed at everybodys support, said Aycock. I have messages every day from people wanting to know how they can help. We know what the doctors are saying, but we continue to pray for a miracle because thats all she has left.

Although the feminist in me takes exception at the phrasing, there is much truth in the moniker. I recently lost my four-legged best friend, Bullet, but will never forget what that friendship meant. No matter how badly I had fouled up during the course of the day, Bullet would greet me at the door as though I were a hero returning from war. And only as a true friend will do, he never would let me become too full of myself, reminding me if I didnt fulll my obligations, such as replenishing his food and water and letting him outside when needed, there would, literally, be a mess to clean up. No doubt, he was a constant, faithful companion even on days when I felt as though I didnt deserve it. Recently, my good friends Charles and Keesha Wills realized just how blessed they are to have a four-legged family member. In their case, the familys 110 pound lab and bulldog mix, Mack, also is a hero. Recently, the Wills oldest daughter, Tori, was doing her routine chores, which include taking out the trash. Suddenly, Mack came rushing, knocking her off her path to the outside trash can. When Tori looked around to see what was going on, she found Mack screaming in pain. When the dog lifted his paw, she saw a timber rattlesnake. Tori ran for help, calling for her parents. The snake had bitten Mack in the middle of his paw, which began to swell within minutes. A call to the vet for instructions saved Macks life, but it is the life he saved that has Toris parents calling him her guardian angel. He is a prime example of the word hero, Keesha said. I am forever grateful to this wondrous creature for his act of bravery to protect my daughter. What a good boy he is, and how we love him so! The good Lord put him there at the right time. Theres no telling what might have happened had Mack not been shadowing Tori. His bravery is yet more proof of the inherent goodness and faithful love given us by our pets. Perhaps no one has said it better than author Gene Hill, better known as the Dog Man: Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless hes owned a dog. A dog can show you more honest affection with a ick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes. Im grateful for the Bullets and Macks of this world. They certainly make it a better place. POSTMASTER: Send address change to: Washington County News P.

Thats what it feels like to work in Washington and Holmes counties. It has been such an honor because I have the pleasure to meet some of the most amazing individuals and witness some of the most astounding acts of selessness, love, courage and compassion Ive ever known in my entire life. Every life is like the light emanating like a star and some shine so very bright. They are found in our everyday people, our men and women who protect and serve, our law enforcement, our emergency medical services, our military, our teachers, our friends, our neighbors, our coworkers and our family members. You never know where these acts of valor will come from; it comes from the best of us and it comes from the unlikeliest of us. Sometimes we even surprise ourselves at how much we can accomplish if we just keep the faith and then we end up being a source of strength for others who witness our struggles. The most recently being how the community has come together to help aide local resident Sharon Harris with raising money to help with her medical, travel and other expenses after she found out she had stage two colon cancer. From far and wide people gathered to show their love and support. So many smiling faces and she couldnt stop crying because she was constantly being showed how much she is loved by others. What amazing medicine that is. In the face of every tragedy the community always seems to come together to support one another. Thats one of the reasons I love working with the Relay for Life. Time and time again it seems that someone we know and love is diagnosed with cancer but the amazing part is the way people choose ght back. It is an intense sense of comradery that stirs the heart and soul. I have seen it in the face of sacrice of our men and women of law enforcement, like with the loss of Holmes County Correctional Ofcer Colonel Greg Malloy, who was killed in the line of duty while pursuing a vicious murderer. Even I take for granted that these ne men and women are prepared to put their lives on the line every day for the safety and welfare of those they serve. I worry and pray for my friends who chose to work as correctional ofcers because their line of work is also hazardous. I cannot tell you how many times my faith has been renewed by witnessing those around me overcoming what seemed impossible or witnessing miracles. Like the amazing recovery of kidnapped 7-month-old Shannon Dedrick almost ve years ago. I remember waiting for hours outside a home with Washington County law enforcement and even though it had been so long since we got word they still remained optimistic. They were and are very admirable. It is also seen in those who do for the community without requiring anything in return. Like the awesome services provided by the IFAS Extension Ofce and local health departments with their classes and programs, which Im really excited to be gathering information to present to the public soon. I get excited with prospect of having something useful to share. Theres also the local churches and organizations that help provide food to local families who are struggling to make due. One well known is Shepards Gate in Sunny Hills, who feeds hundreds of people on a regular basis. Caryville and Esto are also making efforts to help feed their local families. Theres also a personal favorite, which is the tireless efforts provided by our local libraries to provide information resources and internet service to students, children and families alike. I also would like to give a shoutout to those who go off, better themselves and then come back to provide services to their hometown people, like Dr. Patrick Hawkins with Hawkins Family Medicine and Kevin Russell with the Spanish Trail Playhouse and Vernon High School Drama. I know there are a lot more people who have left and returned with valuable knowledge and resources but those are the two that come to mind at the moment. I know while I lay in bed tonight I will recall even more people because they have all made a difference in my life. I count myself most fortunate to have been a part for these events as a servant of the community. I have never ceased to be amazed by those around me, in every little act of kindness, in every choice to take a stand, little by little people both great and small are making a difference every day, I only wish that I had a chance to cover them all and share them all with others. I was surprised recently with a gift from a reader. Someone who didnt know me except for the work of my words and chose to share with me something of interest. I cannot express just how much this act has moved me. There are so many wonderful people who are trying to make a difference and more than anything I want to play my part too. Thank you again for spending a little time with me and I look forward to seeing you again next week. F UM C of Chipley appreciates sanctuary restoration coverage Dear Editor, On behalf of the congregation of the First United Methodist Church of Chipley, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your special coverage of the current sanctuary restoration project. So many people have expressed to me how much they enjoyed reading the history of the church and viewing the historic photos that you published. Your articles certainly sparked interest throughout the community in our efforts to ensure that the historic Methodist Church remains a vital part of Chipley and Washington County. I have received nothing but positive reviews from your readers. I consider our county to be blessed that you are now the editor of our hometown newspaper. We, as congregants of First United Methodist, afrm our belief in the saving Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as we continue to serve Christ by serving others. It is our desire to bring others into the loving fellowship and covenant with Christ our Redeemer. We pray that this beautiful edice which was constructed well over one hundred years ago by our forefathers of the faith will remain a beacon of love, of light and loyalty for all who pass our way. I certainly look forward to working with you again soon on projects that are of interest and value to the folks of our county. Pat Aukema Dickson chairman, Administrative Council Chipley First United Methodist Church A re we listening to G ods word? Dear Editor, I have a question. Has everyone or anyone noticed how many young people have tattoos all over their bodies? My question is: Do they know this is mentioned in the Bible? Is it that they dont know, or they simply dont care? It seems to be accepted more as time goes on. Homosexuality also is accepted a lot more today than years ago. Do these folks know that this is an abomination to God? The Bible says without repentance, homosexuals will not enter the Kingdom of God. Yet, today, homosexuals are in the priesthood of modern day churches. I am not judging the person because God has also said, Lest ye be judged. I am, however, judging this ridiculous lifestyle. Im wondering if we as a Christian-based community have paid attention to what God instructed. Why? Because God has, and I am just repeating Him. My last question is: Are you?

Ball and Frances N. Nemchek TALLAHASSEE (AP) It sounds like something Republican Gov. Rick Scott would ask of Republicanturned-Democrat Charlie Crist: How can the people of Florida trust your recent conversion? But the words were Crists, and the question was asked to Tom Gallagher during the 2006 Republican primary for governor. Crist easily won that race in large part because he accused Gallagher of shifting his politics just to win the election. Talking about being a conservative after a political lifetime of liberalism just isnt believable, Crist said of Gallagher. Now Crist is the leading Democratic candidate for governor and is facing the same accusations in reverse from Florida Republicans and his Democratic primary opponent, Nan Rich. They say Crist cant be trusted because of his political conversion from Republican to independent to Democrat. Charlie Crist is like Floridas weather. If you dont like his positions now, wait a little while and hell change them, former Republican Gov. Jeb Bush said in an email. The man is organized purely around his own personal ambition. Nothing he says can be believed. Crists reputation for being a say-anything-fora-vote politician isnt new. Gallagher accused him of it, as did Marco Rubio when he chased Crist from the 2010 Republican Senate primary. Now Scott has joined in. Its hard to believe that someone can go from a Ronald Reagan Republican to a Barack Obama liberal in a short period of time. Its pretty dramatic, Scott said in a phone interview. Crist insists he hasnt changed, saying he was a moderate as a Republican and still is. What changed in the interim is my partys leadership, Crist said, adding he cant stomach the intolerant views of his former party. I always kind of felt, particularly on social issues, I was a round peg in a square hole. Theres no doubt Crist was a moderate when he was elected governor. He supported embryonic stem cell research and gay civil unions. Once elected, he made peace with the state teachers union, which Bush fought, pushed for clean energy to ght climate change, cozied up to Democratic leaders and vetoed an abortion bill that was a GOP priority. But when he found Rubio beating him in the 2010 primary, he insisted no one was more conservative than he. Asked how that squared with his recent claim of lifelong moderation, Crist said, I dont know and I dont care ... What I care about is Florida. Some of Crists changing positions include: Cuba: Crist criticized 2006 Democratic gubernatorial opponent Jim Davis for visiting Cuba on a congressional factnding trip, saying, I know when its time to visit Havana, and its when its free. As an independent Senate candidate in 2010, Crist supported allowing CubanAmericans unrestricted travel to visit relatives in Cuba. This year, Crist said the U.S. should scrap its 52-yearold trade and travel embargo and announced plans for his own factnding trip. President Barack Obamas health care overhaul: As a Republican Senate candidate in 2009, Crist said Obamas plan was cockamamie and nuts and demanded its repeal; as a 2010 independent Senate candidate, Crist said there were positive things about the law and it should be xed, not repealed; as a 2014 Democratic gubernatorial candidate, he says its great. Obamas $787 billion federal stimulus package: In 2009, Crist asked Floridas congressional delegation to support the stimulus and appeared with Obama at a rally pushing for its passage. Later that year he ran a radio ad criticizing Obama for the plan and told CNN I didnt endorse it. He is now defending his support of the plan, saying it saved jobs. Oil drilling off Floridas coasts: He opposed it when he ran for governor in 2006. In 2008 he said he was open to the idea after Republican presidential nominee John McCain called for more offshore drilling Crist hoped to be his vice presidential pick. Crist changed his mind again after the 2010 BP oil spill. Of course, Scott has his own ipops. After campaigning as a hard-liner on illegal immigration, Scott signed bills this year allowing the state Supreme Court to grant law licenses and instate tuition to some Florida residents living in the United States illegally. And last year Scott stunned many when he supported expanding Medicaid under Obamas health care overhaul. Before he got into politics, the former hospital-chain founder spent millions of his own money to ght the overhaul. The Republicandominated Legislature rejected the Medicaid expansion. A recent poll showed most Floridians dont trust Crist or Scott. Crist opponents question his political conversion AP Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist speaks last month at the Florida Press Association and Florida Society of Newspaper Editors at a gubernatorial forum in Coral Gables.

GAINESVILLE (AP) Florida judges should stop ruling on same-sex marriage cases until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether states can ban gay marriage, the states attorney general said Friday. Attorney General Pam Bondi led motions in the Mi ami-based 3rd District Court of Appeal, requesting a freeze on two cases concerning the states constitutional amend ment banning gay marriage. Voters approved the amend ment in 2008. Judges in four Florida counties Palm Beach, Monroe, Miami-Dade and Broward have overturned the ban, but no marriage li censes have been issued be cause Bondi has appealed. Bondi, a Republican, said the state will defer to the Su preme Court and that any further state proceedings are a waste of taxpayer money and judicial resources. Utah and Oklahoma this week asked the Supreme Court to decide the issue, and while the court is not obligat ed to take the cases, Bondi argued the court will likely weigh in. Despite the vigorous policy and legal debates sur rounding same-sex mar riage, there is little disagree ment about this: If the United States Supreme Court holds that states must sanction same-sex marriage, then Floridas contrary laws must fall, Bondi wrote. The motions address two cases that involve same-sex couples who successfully argued the 2008 ban violates their 14th Amendment guar antee of due process and equal protection under the law. Nadine Smith, executive director of Equality Florida Institute Inc., a civil rights legal organization represent ing one of the couples, said Bondi is stalling because she doesnt think her appeals will work. She knows she has no arguments worthy of making, and that her appeal is simply a waste of taxpayer money, Smith said. But rather than say so and back away from the appeals, this is her attempt to take the pressure off. Bondis ofce reiterated the move would save money and Florida will respect the Supreme Courts decision. Some gay marriage oppo nents applauded Bondis mo tions, saying an approval by Florida judges that could lat er be overturned by the high court is unfair to everyone. This really is the most fair and responsible thing that she could do, said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Coun cil, which supported the 2008 amendment. Still, because it is an elec tion year, some gay marriage supporters charged Bondi with playing politics. These families should not suffer just because our attor ney general has chosen a le gal strategy that has plagued her with awkward and embar rassing media coverage as she runs for re-election, said Howard Simon, executive di rector of the ACLU of Florida. TALLAHASSEE (AP) Flor ida legislative commit tees on Friday approved a proposal to make slight changes to seven congres sional districts to comply with a court order. Panels in both the House and Senate passed the new map altering the districts, which stretch from central to northeast Florida. A nal vote in the full House and Senate on the new map is expected early next week. Leon County Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis ruled last month the origi nal maps passed by legis lators in 2012 was intend ed to benet Republicans, in violation of a constitu tional amendment passed by voters in 2010. The ruling specied that Congressional Dis tricts 5 and 10 were inval id. Republican legislative leaders defended their new maps as the best way to comply with the court order without disturbing other districts throughout the state while obeying the federal Voting Rights Acts prohibition against under cutting minority districts. I think we did an excellent job. Im very proud of it, said Rep. Richard Corcoran, R-Land OLakes. (Judge Lewis) clearly said legally why we had to be here. We addressed all of his legal concerns. But the League of Wom en Voters, which brought the lawsuit, contends that small changes to the map are not enough. The group takes particular issue with District 5, currently held by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville a skinny district run ning from Jacksonville to Orlando that was designed to produce a majority African-American dis trict. The league prefers a district that runs west from Jacksonville to the heart of the Panhandle. Members of the House committee voted down an alternative proposal from Democrats along party lines that would have made changes to only three dis tricts, but that lessened the black voting age popu lation in Browns district from about 50 percent to 43.7 percent. Lewis has given law makers until next Friday to adopt new districts.

By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack email@example.com PANAMA CITY The Springeld man who was shot during an armed standoff with authorities has died after several days of treatment in a local hospital, the Bay County Sheriffs Ofce con rmed Monday. Aaron Lepak, 40, died Sunday morn ing from the critical gunshot wounds he sustained at the end of an al most two-hour armed standoff with law enforcement agencies Aug. 5. He was wanted in connection with a do mestic violence incident that left his wife paralyzed, in critical condition, and sent him into hiding for almost a week before the confrontation. Lepak was cornered with a .22 caliber Derringer in a Panama City motel for more than an hour before negotiations deteriorated, he waived his gun in the sheriffs direction and was shot by Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen, according to BCSO. The Florida Department of Law En forcement is conducting an investigation into BCSOs response to the standoff, a standard procedure when ofcers use deadly force. The investigation could take several weeks. However, BCSO of cials have released preliminary state ments that Lepak turned his pistol on himself in an apparent suicide attempt after McKeithen shot him in the torso. BCSO ofcials on Monday declined to comment on Lepaks death. Attempts to contact Lepaks fam ily were unsuccessful Monday. Lepaks mother, Catherine, was at the hospital when her son was pronounced dead, she said in a Facebook message. Thanks to the wonderful staff I was able to hold him as he left this earth to be at peace with his beauti ful sister, she wrote. They deserve medals for their compassion and helpfulness through this impos sible time in my life. I can never ex press my gratitude to my family, co-workers and friends. EMS personnel rushed Lepak to the hospital with critical gunshot wounds after BCSO ofcers heard three shots come from room 31 of the Budget Inn at 3910 U.S. 98. The shooting ended a four-day man hunt for Lepak, who reportedly had sto len the Derringer from a safe belonging to the mother of his wife, Rhonda Lepak. As ofcers closed in on Aaron Lepak, they learned he had been telling the people quartering him that his wifes injuries had come from a fall. According to Springeld Po lice Department reports, during a verbal dispute at their East Ninth Street home on July 27, Aaron Lepak reportedly grabbed Rhonda Lepak and picked her up before placing her in a headlock. When she came to, she couldnt feel her legs, Rhonda Lepak told police. A day later, she said she convinced Aaron Lepak to call for help and EMS transported her to a local hospital, where she learned she had been paralyzed, po lice reports stated. Lepak then ed, staying one night in a front-yard shed on Dartmouth Place in Youngstown, authorities reported. He borrowed a yellow Dodge Neon and relo cated for a couple of nights to a friends apartment in the Edgewood Garden Apartments on 23rd Street under the guise his wifes injuries were caused by a fall. A warrant for his arrest was is sued Aug. 1, and BCSO tracked Lepak and the yellow Dodge Neon parked in front of the Budget Inn room last week. When of cers knocked on the door, Lepak became hostile and barricaded himself in the room, BCSO reported. BCSO said McKeithen alone gained access to Lepak, keeping the SWAT unit outside abreast via his cell phone placed on a nightstand in the room. McKeithen did not draw his gun until discussions deteriorated 90 minutes into negotiations, BCSO said. Lepak became careless with his re arm, waving it in the direction of the sheriff who is a trained hostage or crisis negotiator. BCSO said McKeithen feared for his safety and red at Lepak. Lepak was struck in the torso and then turned the Derringer on himself, BCSO said. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated until Sunday morning, when he died of his injuries. The development does not affect FDLEs investigation into the incident, agency representatives said Monday. McKeithen returned to service Thurs day after a use of force committee, com posed of command staff, reviewed his actions.

After only a few short weeks, the new back page of the A section of the Wednesday Edition of the Washington County News, entitled Reections," appears to be gaining popularity with readers. Thanks to Editor Carol Kent and staff for this innovation. The Prattler was honored that she shared her plans with me before this special page became a reality. After only a few publications, she told me: Mr. Wells, the Reections page is already being called the 'Perry Wells Page' around the news ofce." I have had opportunity to contribute to the new idea by submitting photographs, which are being printed at the bottom of the page under the heading of Chasing Shadows." Mine were in the arena of old pictures from past Watermelon Festivals. I was especially honored when the picture of your writer appeared with Mr. V. J. Collins, who was a member of the watermelon festival committee in its infancy and the gentlemen who initially came up with the idea of one Perry Wells taking the helm of the event in 1976. Readers know that this chairmanship continued through 2006, a full 30 years, before the current chairman, Judge Colby Peel, agreed to take the reigns of leadership. He has carried the historic event to even greater plateaus in his eight years of service. Continued growth and interest in the community event is predicted. On the subject of festivals in the county, the 2014, 45 Annual Fun Day Festival in Wausau, held on Aug. 1 and 2, is now history. Should any "newcomer" not know the full story on that mammoth event, you can nd its humble beginnings narrated in the Heritage of Washington Book, pages 79 and 80. The article is complete with interesting pictures of the founding fathers and the early supporters of a festival that has also become known as Possum Day in Wausau. The news release for the event just passed included that the original founder and chairman, Dalton Carter, would be present for the 2014 occasion. The writer is aware that he has remained by the side of present chairman, Joe Tharp, assisting in every way possible since relinquishing his long tenure of leadership in 1994. Dalton always tells me; Judge, I am just adding a little elbow grease to Joes efforts! Dalton Carter, as founder, had an idea to do something for the town of Wausau to show forth their community spirit. He came up with the idea to meet on the rst Friday night in August in 1970 on the front porch of the Lee Wood home in the heart of Wausaus main street. Music, entertainment and plenty of food was the order of the day. The event caught on fast and continued each year on the rst week-end in August. For awhile, the gathering took place at the Holiness Church in the town. As interest snowballed, other events were added including a mammoth sh fry on Friday night as a fund raiser to pay for free events the day following. Dalton gives credit to the late E.W. (Judge) Carswell who came forward and suggested incorporating the lowly opossum as the gimmick to stimulate more interest from more people at the annual celebration. After the event moved to Wausaus ball eld, to accommodate the massive crowds, the Friday night big sh fry, with plates of mullet, with all the trimmings, proved to be the big draw for even more people. In 1975 attendance exploded with untold numbers of hungry visitors converging on the unprepared promoters looking for the expected big sh dinner. Dalton reports putting the word out to his limited group of volunteer helpers to: cut back on the mullet and hit em hard with baked beans! This is the night when one well meaning person jokingly expressed his views on the shortage of the delectable sh when he was heard to say: Dalton put the word out that this was to be a big sh dinner tonight. From the looks of this plate, it looks like a big bean dinner to me. With the cooperation of elected ofcials in high places, Possum Palace became a reality fairly early in its history. This has allowed for the throngs of people, both old and young, to seek shelter from the scorching, almost unbearable heat and have continued to ll the facility each and every year to enjoy a day of fun and frolic. As the fashionable modern day saying goes: The rest of the story is now history as concerning the Wausau Annual Fun Day. It was the writers privilege to attend the Florida Folk Festival at White Springs, Florida in May of 2012 and hear Wausaus own, Dalton Carter, founder of the towns Wausau Fun Day, present the history and story of the events humble beginning and bringing forth what it has come to in recent years. Dalton told his story on two of the three days of the event. He held his listeners spell bound with each presentation in only the manner and authority that he is capable of portraying. Other festival promoters look at Wausau as a model for staging a home-town event with something for every one and keeping clean wholesome family entertainment as its goal. Candidates, elected ofcials and other aspirants for public ofce, ock to Wausau each August for the day long activity, beginning each year with a gigantic parade. It has even been suggested that in order to get elected to an ofce in Washington County, participation in the Fun Day Parade and a bid on the Big Possum is a must. Wausau Fun Day has already established it self as a legend in the history of Washington County. Its rich history and heritage promises to make it an enjoyable event to visit on the rst week-end in August. Mark your calendars now for next year. See you all next week.

B2 | Washington County News Extra Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Special to the News Motorists heading to the gas pumps are nding the cheapest August gas prices since 2010. The national average price was $2.74 on Aug. 1. Average prices on Aug. 1 were $3.52 in 2012 and $3.71 in 2011. The current average of $3.50 is 3 cents cheaper than the week before, and the discount at the pump should continue in the near future. Typically, gasoline prices uctuate in July and August, but for the most part, prices have steadily declined, said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman. Oil prices decreased dramatically this week, so theres no reason gas prices should go up any time soon. In fact, if these conditions continue, prices could eventually slip below $3 a gallon by the end of the year. However, unexpected renery outages, a spike in oil prices or the mere threat of a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico could cause gas prices to rise. Oil prices plummeted in late July. The price for a barrel of WTI settled at 97.88 on the NYMEX on Aug. 1, $4.21 compared to the week before. That was the biggest weekly decline in seven months and the lowest settlement since February. Reneries are running at record levels, and there is more than enough gasoline in the market, which has helped bring down prices despite multiple overseas conicts. The current average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Florida is $3.41. That is the cheapest price since February. In Georgia, the average price of $3.40, the cheapest price since March. Tennessees average price of $3.27 is also the cheapest since March. Ca ndida te s should ha ve prior ex perienc e in a sales en vir onmen t along with high school diploma or equiv alen t.

Special to the News Douglas Blake Dykes of Syfrett and Dykes Law Ofces in Panama City is one of 165 lawyers statewide and the only lawyer in the 14th circuit who recently earned Florida Bar board certication, a designation that places him among the only group of Florida lawyers who may use the terms specialist, expert or B.C.S. for Board Certied Specialist when referring to their legal credentials. Dykes earned board certication in civil trial. Board certied lawyers are evaluated for professionalism and tested for expertise. Board certication evaluates attorneys special knowledge, skills and prociency in various areas of law, professionalism and ethics in practice. About 4,600 of Floridas 99,000 lawyers have earned board certication. Florida offers 24 specialty areas for board certication, more than any other state. Board certication is one of the highest recognitions a lawyer in Florida can receive, said Florida Bar President Gregory Coleman. The very difcult testing and extensive background peer review to conrm professional conduct is such a high standard that less than 5 percent of our total membership has achieved this level of recognition. All boardcertied attorneys should be extremely proud of their accomplishment. Board of Legal Specialization and Education Chair Jack Pelzer said board certication is a signicant career milestone. Members of the public may feel condent that when they speak with a boardcertied lawyer, they are speaking with an expert in the eld, Pelzer said. Board-certied lawyers are set apart because their expertise and professionalism have been objectively veried through rigorous examination and peer review. The Florida Bar annually awards board certication in two cycles, effective June 1 and Aug. 1. Board certication is The Florida Bars highest evaluation of attorneys competence and experience in one or more of the 24 areas of law approved for certication by the Supreme Court of Florida. Florida Bar board-certied lawyers have demonstrated ability and experience in their elds and professionalism within the legal community. A lawyer who is a member in good standing of The Florida Bar and who meets the standards prescribed by the states Supreme Court may become board-certied in one or more of the 24 certication elds. Minimum requirements for certication are listed below; each area of certication may contain higher or additional standards. A minimum of ve years in law practice. Substantial involvement in the eld of law for which certication is sought. Satisfactory peer review from other lawyers and judges to assess competence in the specialty eld as well as character, ethics and professionalism in the practice of law. Satisfaction of the certication areas continuing legal education requirements. A passing grade on the examination required of all applicants.

Folsom Prison Blues written and recorded by Johnny Cash If you recently received a card from your broker postmarked in Hawaii, you may have helped send him there. A broker at an investment conference stated in a luncheon recently that he would never consider leaving his rm. Why? someone asked. The vacations, he said. Every year, depending on how many annuities I sell, they send my wife and me to a place weve never been. Last year we went to Rome. The year before we took an Alaskan cruise. This year were going to Paris. And its all free. When markets tumbled in 2008 these trips were downsized or cancelled. Now, though, in concert with recent bullish markets, complimentary vacations to resort destinations are once again on the rise. Some educational sessions are usually hosted at conferences now, to lend some professional credence to the trips. A recent article in the WSJ is entitled Wall Street Revives Reward Junkets for Top Brokers. The accompanying photo reveals beachside cabanas at the RitzCarlton Kapalua. In late April, a few hundred of Morgan Stanleys top stockbrokers and their spouses jetted off to Hawaii for a gathering spiced with golf, deep-sea shing and suntanning, writes Corrie Driebusch. When they arrivedthe rst perks of their all-expenses paid trip were waiting for them GoPro cameras and Maui Jim sunglasses Perhaps nothing else delineates so clearly the difference between brokers and fee-only advisors. If an advisor is being rewarded by his parent company with a lavish vacation for reaching a certain plateau of annuity sales, or for steering client investment dollars into parent company mutual funds, he will naturally aspire to please the parent company, which provides his income. The problem is that investing in an annuity or the rms parent company mutual fund may or may not be in the clients best interest. The client may wonder: Is the advisor selling or recommending this product because its good for me nancially, or because it earns him more points toward a year-end vacation? This is one of the reasons why brokers are not duciaries and fee-only advisors do serve as duciaries to their clients. The duciary advisor maintains a legal obligation to act in the clients best interest. Independent, fee-only advisors have no parent companies. Thus, they are not rewarded with vacations, salary, benets or perks from a company which nancially benets from the sale of certain nancial instruments. Fee-only advisors sell no products. Every dime of an independent, fee-only advisors income is derived from client fees, and thus, his focus is on his clients, not on packing a suitcase. Margaret R.

According resident Gail Tate, mother of ve, the re started before 5:30 a.m. at their residence at the intersection of County 163 and Peacock Lane in Westville. I woke up coughing around 5:30 this morning and smelt something like smoke, Gail said. I open the door to the kitchen and it was nothing but a wall of ames. I managed to get my son, Samuel, out and called the re department but it couldnt be saved. Arriving at the scene to help battle the blaze were volunteer re departments from Pittman, Pine Log and New Hope. Gail Tate lived with her husband, Steve and two sons, Samuel, 18, and Isaac, 12. She said of all the pos sessions she lost, the one she would miss the most was a portrait of her son who died 14 years ago at the age of 12 to complica tions of cerebral palsy. Thats what hurts most, she said. I know God has us handled be cause He is an almighty God. Theres valleys and hills and God will provide. She said believes this was the third of a series of arson attempts on her home in the last several weeks. In the rst, a lit bottle of accelerant that was thrown under the house, but was contained with damage only to one window and the second was a lit bottle of acceler ant thrown through the kitchen window, burning a portion of the kitchen. The incident is current ly under investigation by the State Fire Marshal and no information regarding the incident has been re leased as the investigation is ongoing.

You may remember the name Daniel Evans as the latest upcoming local Christian rap artist. Evans, from Chancellor, Ala., is described as a promising hip-hop artist whose singing roots originated from his local church, Daniel Evans has been singing his praises to God using old-school hip-hop beats combined with modern crunk for that contemporary vibe. Evans said he grew up in Fort Walton Beach but now has a home in Chancellor, Ala. I started writing songs at a young age, I accepted the Lord at a young age, but always liked rap, so I decided to start writing Christian rap, because I felt that God could use me to reach people through it, Evans said. I quit doing it for a while, because I got out of church for a while and got depressed and discouraged because I thought I was a failure to myself, God and others. At one point in time I did not thank God could still use me I was inspired to write this song called, also the title to my album, Nothing Going to Stop Me, and started back writing because my Dad said you use to rap, and you use to tell people about The Lord, and that motivated me to start back writing, going back to church, rapping and telling people about the Lord as well as getting back in the studio and record. He said the thing that keeps him going is his mother and his familys prayers. Its the joy and the happiness I bring all my family and friends when they listen to my music or see me perform, Evans said. And its the doors God keeps opening for me to get my message out as Im just His willing vessel, but it also brings me joy to rap and its something I love to do. Evans has released two new singles, called Ministry on the Mic and God is Your Protector. He has also self-published a book of poetry called Overcoming Adversity. I never believed that I would write a book of poetry when I rst started, Evans said. I did them for myself, to get me through these rough times in my life. It wasnt until later that I realized that these poems might help someone else come through their time of darkness and despair, so that they too can overcome their adversities.

Register SUBMISSIONS Send obituaries to news@ chipleypaper. com Obituaries This week is a hallmark in the lives of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me. Forty-three years ago this week, we began a journey that has just become better with each year. That is the benet of marrying up. Getting married was not something I had put together. Very few men put together their wedding plans. After all, that is why we get married. It came to me rather suddenly. I was at Bible college and one morning one of the guys in the dorm said to me, Congratulations. I just heard the good news. I smiled and nodded my head thinking about my plans for the day. I had no idea what he was talking about and at the time I did not have the time to ask him what he was talking about. Everybody I met that morning was congratulating me and telling me how happy they were for me. Soon I was beginning to wonder what in the world was going on. I did not have any test in any my classes yesterday so it could not be anything like that. I do not play the lottery so I could not have won the lottery. I could not think of anything I did yesterday that would cause all of this congratulatory remarks in my direction. Finally, when I had about as much as I could take, I asked somebody, What is everybody congratulating me for? The person that I queried looked at me, broke out in laughter and said, Man, you got to be kidding! Then he turned around, walking away laughing every step of the way. I went to my class, found my seat and got situated then one of the young ladies passed by, patted me on the shoulder and said, I am so happy for you and I think it is a wonderful thing. And I know you are going to be happy for the rest of your life. Well, I had had it. I looked at her and very rmly said, What are you so happy about? Your wedding, she said laughing, youre getting married. Oh, I said, nodding my head. Thank you very much. Then what she said dawned on me. I looked at her and said, Im getting what? Silly boy, she said, laughing hysterically, its all over campus so it must be true. I then had to think about this situation I was in. Everybody on the campus knew I was getting married, except me. Was I still sleeping? Was this just a dream I am having? I began to think about the events the preceding evening, and remembered a little conversation I had with the girl I was now supposed to be getting married to. In the course of our conversation, as I remembered it at the time, she said something to the effect, Wouldnt it be great to get married. As I recalled the conversation, I nodded my head and said something to the effect, Yea, I guess it would be. That was the end of the conversation as far as I was concerned, but the beginning of an ongoing conversation as far as someone else was concerned. Why is it that the groom-to-be is always the last one to know? Then I asked one of the girls in the hallway, When am I getting married? At the time, I did not have the foggiest idea. She turned away laughing and muttering to herself something to the effect that I had a really good sense of humor. Believe me, I was not laughing. As it turned out, me and the young lady I was to be married to, were engaged to be married and, I do not want to pry into this point very much, the wedding dress already purchased. As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Looking back over life, most of the good things that have happened to me were never of my doing. Im convinced that is the way God works. If you are doing what you want to do, you are probably not doing what God wants you to do. At least I have developed that philosophy to this point of my life. Some things in life I am rather good at planning, a wedding not being one of them; not even close. After all these years, I can still remember that wonderful day when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were united in holy matrimony. Our wedding was rather simple and the focus point of the wedding was the wedding vows. When I said, I do it clinched the deal, and I was married and I have been doing it ever since. I have said many words in my life, and written thousands and thousands of words, but the most important words that have changed my life were those words, I do. The Bible has a lot to say about marriage and husbands and wives. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it (Ephesians 5:24-25). There are some empty words that we use every day but every once in a while we say a word or two that lls our life with joy unspeakable and full of glory. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att. net.

VIN #2G2WP552671161548 2007 Pontiac August 13, 2014 Anal gland disease common in pets The anal glands in a dog or cat are residual scent marking organs, responsible for the production of an odor that identi es the individual and marks his stool to establish territory. Similar to the glands of a skunk, the anal glands are typically expelled when the animal defecates, or sometimes when they feel stressed or relaxed. Anal gland disease can include one of several medical issues involving the anal glands. The most common form of anal gland disease is impaction, where the contents are not expelled normally, said Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer in dermatology at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. In this situation, the animal may require assistance from a veterinarian, veterinary technician, groomer, or owner to have the anal glands expressed. Other medical conditions of the anal gland include infections, abscesses, or even cancer. One of the most recognizable symptoms of anal gland disease is when the animal scoots, or drags their hind end on the carpet, grass,or other surface. Malodor and frequent licking also are good indicators. If an infection, abscess or cancer is the cause of disease, exudate may be noted from the anal gland or tissue surrounding the anus, Diesel said. Depending on the particular disease, treatment options are highly variable. If you are concerned that your dog or cat might have anal gland disease, you should schedule an appointment with your pets veterinarian to have them evaluated and discuss recommendations for the particular cause of disease. For impaction, periodic manual expression of the anal gland contents may be suf cient, Diesel said. Sometimes, changes in diet may help with the disease, or at least from expression being required quite as frequently. If it is discovered to be cancer, then surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy may be the appropriate treatment, depending on the speci c type of cancer. For infections and abscesses, having the area clipped and cleaned by a veterinarian is generally helpful, Diesel said. Additional medication such as antibiotics (either oral medications, or infused into the anal gland) may be required. In general, there is no way to prevent anal gland disease in your pets, aside from having them surgically removed. However, this is not typically recommended, as it is a bit aggressive for an animal that isnt showing signs of anal gland disease. Additionally, there is the potential for complications associated with the surgery including fecal incontinence, stricture formation (leading to potentially severe constipation), or poor wound healing, Diesel said. As well, this would not prevent medical problems which may mimic anal gland disease including parasites, allergies, or other types of cancer. Athough anal gland disease is a fairly common pet health problem, it is recommended that you consult with your veterinarian to establish the safest and most effective treatment method available for your pet.
