A MORE THAN WORTHY CAUSE CECILIA SPEARS | The News Wendell Beattie, a 28-year service Air Force veteran from Crestview, has taken up the ag and over 50 pounds of gear and is trudging State Road 90 the entirety of 143 miles from Crestview to Tallahassee to bring attention to Operation American Spring. Air Force vet takes on 143 miles By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com Wendell Beattie, a 28-year service veteran retired from the Air Force made his way through Bonifay on June 17 and continued on his course on June 18 through Chipley as he made his way from Crestview on foot, carrying the American ag and sporting his fatigues, all for what he said was a more than worthy cause. Beattie began his journey in Crestview on June 14 after he heard the concepts and ideas of Crestvilles very own Harry Riley, the creator of Operation American Spring. Riley is retired navy intelligence, retired NSA and is known for his various local forums and letters to the editors near Crestview and Walton Beach. Hes been calling and writing, trying to get the American people to stand up for their rights, said Beattie. If you dont stand up for your rights, then youre going to lose them. The main goal is to restore the Constitutional government and to go about it with Gods help and the Constitution. He said after further research he decided to be an active participant for Operation American Spring, which has three phases. Phase one was to eld millions, as many as ten million, patriots into displaying a peaceable, non-violent protest against the current government leadership in Washington D.C., explained Beattie. For phase two we were supposed to have millions assemble and stay in Washington D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi and Attorney General Holder removed from of ce, he said.

Planning and Zoning reviewed the application thoroughly before submitting it to the city for approval, said City Administrator Dan Miner. There were some adjustments that needed to be made but it was all discussed and approved at the Planning and Zoning meeting. The store will be much like the one in Graceville and will include access from Chestnut Street and a retention pond. Lane informed the Council that he was hoping to have the store open by the rst of October. It is a great idea, said Council member Karen Rustin.

WORTHY from page A1 By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com UGANDA Local minister, No lan Windholtz, recently took his mobile ministry, Nolans Potters House Ministry, to Jinja, Ugan da and is currently there until Thursday, July 10. Windholtz is a potter and uses the pottery process to preach the gospel. The path that a piece if clay follows from the moment it leaves the clay pit to where it completes through the re parallel, the Christian experience, and what I do is visually illustrate that by making a vessel while preaching and teaching lessons from the Bi ble, said Windholtz. Ive been a potter for 30 years and in the s I did it a lot, then I got busy, mar ried, started a business and for the most part left the ministry. Now my situation is different so I have time to travel for months at a time. I love doing this message in the prisons in the area and Ive been to most including the chapel service at Holmes County. He said that recently a friend of his from Uganda invited him to come to Uganda. I was there for a three week stay last fall and fell in love with the place and the people, said Windholtz. We had gone there to see it and a large group of folks gath ered around to see what we were doing and I began to share with them the gospel, form a potters perceptive. I am concentrating my time in and around the area of Jinja and I am scheduled to preach in 20 different churches while I am here. The main church he will be preaching from in Jinja, Uganda is called Rock Base Church. He said he nds this type of gospel especially relevant to the people living there because the people use mainly clay pots for everyday life. Major point to this trip is to train up some Uganda potters and somehow the potter fairy missed Jinja Uganda, said Windholtz. This area of Uganda has a lot of clay yet not a single potter but I hope to change that.

Washington County News | A3 Saturday, June 14, 2014 WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration has been quietly advising local police not to disclose details about surveillance technol ogy they are using to sweep up basic cellphone data from entire neighborhoods, The Associated Press has learned. Citing security reasons, the U.S. has intervened in routine state public records cases and criminal trials regarding use of the tech nology. This has resulted in police departments with holding materials or heav ily censoring documents in rare instances when they disclose any about the purchase and use of such powerful surveillance equipment. Federal involvement in local open records proceed ings is unusual. It comes at a time when President Barack Obama has said he welcomes a debate on gov ernment surveillance and called for more transpar ency about spying in the wake of disclosures about classied federal surveil lance programs. One well-known type of this surveillance equip ment is known as a Sting ray, an innovative way for law enforcement to track cellphones used by sus pects and gather evidence. The equipment tricks cell phones into identifying some of their owners ac count information, like a unique subscriber number, and transmitting data to police as if it were a phone companys tower. That al lows police to obtain cell phone information without having to ask for help from service providers, such as Verizon or AT&T, and can locate a phone without the user even making a call or sending a text message. But without more de tails about how the technol ogy works and under what circumstances its used, its unclear whether the technology might violate a persons constitutional rights or whether its a good investment of taxpay er dollars. Interviews, court re cords and public-records requests show the Obama administration is asking agencies to withhold com mon information about the equipment, such as how the technology is used and how to turn it on. That pushback has come in the form of FBI afdavits and consultation in local criminal cases. These extreme secrecy efforts are in relation to very controversial, local government surveillance practices using highly inva sive technology, said Na than Freed Wessler, a staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, which has fought for the release of these types of records. If public participation means anything, people should have the facts about what the government is doing to them. Harris Corp., a key man ufacturer of this equipment, built a secrecy element into its authorization agreement with the Federal Communi cations Commission in 2011. That authorization has an unusual requirement: that local law enforcement co ordinate with the FBI the acquisition and use of the equipment. Companies like Harris need FCC au thorization to sell wireless equipment that could inter fere with radio frequencies. A spokesman from Har ris Corp. said the company will not discuss its products for the Defense Depart ment and law enforcement agencies, although public lings showed government sales of communications systems such as the Sting ray accounted for almost one-third of its $5 billion in revenue. As a government contractor, our solutions are regulated and their use is restricted, spokesman Jim Burke said. A criminal case in Tal lahassee cites the same homeland security laws in Morrisons afdavit, court re cords show, and prosecutors told the court they consulted with the FBI to keep por tions of a transcript sealed. That transcript, released ear lier this month, revealed that Stingrays force cellphones to register their location and identifying information with the police device and enables ofcers to track calls when ever the phone is on. In Sarasota, the U.S. Marshals Service conscat ed local records on the use of the surveillance equip ment, removing the docu ments from the reach of Floridas expansive openrecords law after the ACLU asked under Florida law to see the documents. The ACLU has asked a judge to intervene. The Marshals Service said it deputized the ofcer as a federal agent and therefore the records werent acces sible under Florida law. Administration wants police to keep its technology secret New trial ordered for ex-BP engineer NEW ORLEANS (AP) A new trial was ordered Thursday for a former BP engi neer convicted of deleting text messages related to the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval threw out Kurt Mixs obstruction-ofjustice conviction, saying that remarks a jury forewoman overheard outside of the courtroom inuenced the verdict. Prosecutors said Mix, of Katy, Texas, deliberately deleted text messages to and from a supervisor and a BP contractor to stymie a grand jurys investigation of the spill. The defense had argued the fore woman in the December trial told a then-deadlocked jury that she had heard statements afrming her view that Mix was guilty. She overheard on an elevator that people in addition to Mix were facing trial. Prosecutors and defense lawyers agreed that other jurors never heard the substance of the forewomans informa tion because they stopped her before she shared it. But defense lawyer Joan McPhee argued the forewoman communi cated to jurors that she had heard infor mation that afrmed her view that the correct verdict was guilty. Prosecutors said there is no evidence the forewomans information made a dif ference in the deliberations. Duval said in his Thursday ruling that the forewoman polluted the jury with her statements at a critical juncture that is after the jury had deadlocked. He added that it was clear that the juror herself had failed to follow instructions that she consider only the evidence presented in court. Mix, 52 at the time of his conviction, had been set for sentencing in August. The subject matter of the deleted texts in question at trial was the amount of oil owing from the blown-out well. Mixs attorneys had argued there was ample evidence that Mix shared informa tion about the ow rate throughout the government investigation and that his de letion of the single string of emails fell far short of what is needed for a conviction. They also said prosecutors failed to prove that Mix knew the information he deleted would be pertinent to a grand jury investigation an investigation they said he did not know about and that had not yet even begun. Prosecutors said there was a great deal of evidence and that Mix knew of the pos sibility of a grand jury investigation. Prosecutors did not immediately re spond to emailed requests for comment Thursday night. McPhee, reached by tele phone, said she would have a comment on behalf of Mix later Thursday or Friday. The explosion on the BP-operated drill ing rig Deepwater Horizon about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast in April 2001 killed 11 workers and set off the nations worst offshore oil disaster. The disaster led to complicated civil liti gation expected to last for years, as well as criminal charges against Mix and others. BP well site leaders Robert Kaluza and Donald Vidrine have pleaded not guilty to manslaughter charges stemming from the 11 deaths. Former BP executive Da vid Rainey faces a charge of lying to law enforcement agents in the case. Anthony Badalamenti, a former manager for Halli burton Energy Services Inc., BPs cement contractor on the rig, was sentenced to one year of probation for destroying evi dence in the aftermath of the spill.

If you ever have seen the movie Jaws then you know what the bay and pass looked like on opening day of snapper season a week ago. If the feds had been standing on the jetties and counted all the boats going out for snapper they would have shut down snapper season Saturday night. We dont have very many boat ramps in Bay County, but the ones that were even slightly able to launch a boat were full. Of course the one behind the college still is in the same sad shape it has been for a year, but even though it was possible to get your vehicle stuck there some shermen risked putting their boats in because they had no other choice. Those who question how much money snapper shing brings to Florida and Bay County should have witnessed all the trafc in the bay Saturday morning. If just half of the people on those boats slept in a motel or bought a meal in a restaurant or bought tackle or bait or gas just think of the tremendous boost to our economy. It wasnt just here in Bay County, it was all along the coast from Destin to Mexico Beach and beyond. Now just think if snapper season was open in federal waters for 52 days like it is in state waters. Many have their eyes on Sunday as the beginning of federal snapper season, but keep in mind grey triggersh and greater amberjack close on Sunday and will remain closed until Aug. 1 in Gulf States waters. In federal Gulf waters, greater amberjack also will close June 1 through July 31. Grey triggersh closed in Gulf federal waters May 1 and will be closed until Dec. 31. Im not too sure what is driving the lionsh conversation, but someone doesnt have much to do if they think going out and killing lionsh is going to be a detriment to the lionsh population. Girls and boys, the old lionsh is here to stay. Sort of like big snakes in South Florida. Lionsh are sort of like the yellow y. You can sit on your porch and kill as many as you like, but there are a blue million waiting in the wings to take their place. I suppose it is noble to discuss what lionsh are going to do to the snappers and groupers, but the fact is lionsh arent going anywhere so you might as well get used to them.

It opens June 1, slams shut again just nine days later on June 10 thanks to a Byzantine federal management system that tightens the regulations ever more as the shery gets better and better. (If we get a tropical storm on or about June 1, say goodbye to the entire season.) Federal regulators say the rules are for the good of the sh and ultimately of the shermen. But in fact, most experienced reef anglers say red snapper shing is now better than it has been in at least 40 years thanks to an extended period of tight harvest regulations, and also perhaps due to the success of sh excluder devices on shrimp nets, allowing millions of juvenile snapper to escape these days when in the past they would have wound up as by-catch, dead on the deck. The snapper are both much larger than they have been in decades, and much more numerous, according to hundreds of reports from shermen all around the northern half of the state and at least as far south as Tampa Bay. Its not just in Florida waters; Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas also report booming snapper populations. So why dont the feds want to pony up longer seasons and more generous bag limits? Because of a bizarre twist in the way they calculate the harvest they measure it in pounds, and when their best estimate of a conservationsmart harvest is achieved, they call for closure. Snapper grow fast and live a long time, and consequently anglers are now catching tons of whoppers which means that they can catch a lot fewer before they reach those limits set by the feds. To be sure, these restrictions are not arbitrarily contrived by the sh managers they are mandated by the Magnuson-Stevens act, and more recently by a court decision but both these directives are based on badly-designed harvest surveys, which are the direct responsibility of the federal scientists. It is much like the paradoxical Catch 22, and its causing a furious reaction among shermen and state shery managers from Florida to Texas most Gulf states are now moving rapidly toward putting their own harvest surveys in place for the species, tapping the capabilities of smart phones so that anglers can record their catches conveniently the minute they hit the docks. In an unprecedented rebellion against the federal management system, most Gulf states have all but quit cooperating with the NOAA system on this species. These days, state management is really starting to make sense, while it didnt 30 years back. In the bad old days, only commercial shermen had lobbyists and power to control the rules, and many sheries suffered as a result. But these days, the checks and balances of local recreational anglers and conservationists weigh in for keeping the maximum number of quality-sized sh in the water and even the saltiest old commercial harvesters have nally come to realize that it just simply makes sense to guard the resource, so that they can not only make money shing today, but also tomorrow, next month and next year. It should be noted that thanks goes to not only state agencies but also federal biologists for much of the research on offshore species that has made this awakening happen. Florida, like other Gulf states, has set a much longer red snapper season in state waters, up to 9 nautical miles offshore, extending from May 25 to July 14 this year. How this all plays out remains to be seenhopefully, better shery stock analysis will put an end to the foolishness and restore some measure of cooperation between state and federal management agencies. In the meantime, whether you sh state or federal waters, here are some tactics that consistently produce results on red snapper.

Theyre usually found over structure, but not as often down in the structure like grouper. Experts seek out what they call a snapper Christmas tree show on their sonar screens before dropping a line. The pyramid or tree is the shape made by a school of snapper, with most deep, fewer at the top. In 200 feet of water the stack may extend as much as 50 feet off bottom. Gulf red snapper are typically found in 60 foot depths and more, on out to the edge of the continental shelf at around 250 to 280 feetbeyond this zone, the bottom drops away to a mile deep and more, and common reef sh are not found in those depths. The Panhandle has a unique shery in that there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of private reefs, that is junk that skippers have dropped on otherwise barren sand bottom to attract snapperold washing machines, steel drums, all sorts of bulky trash. Its not legal any more, but there are still many of these reefs around, and smart skippers have dozens of them in their GPS machinesall very carefully protected from other skippers who might want to pirate their sh. There are also numerous legally-placed articial reefs, including tugboats, barges and ships as well as demolition rubble, that attract lots of sh; these can be found on any good offshore chart, or visit www.myfwc.com and type articial reefs in the search box. In general, the procedure is for the skipper to head for his favorite GPS number, drop anchor uptide when he gets there, and then let the anglers lower an assortment of frozen threadns, cigar minnows or squid down on 60-poundtackle. Using braided line makes it easier to feel the bite and get a good hookset, but youll need at least ve feet of 60 to 80pound-test mono leader to fool the sh and keep their teeth clear of the braid. (In extremely clear water or where the sh are being shed hard, its sometimes necessary to go to lighter tackle to fool snapperyou lose many but you get bit more often.) Weights of 4 ounces and more are needed to get the bait deep, and hook sizes are typically 6/0 and larger circle hooks, extrastrong. (Circle hooks are required by law, as are hook removers, both aimed at improving survival of released reef sh. Venting devices, required formerly, are no longer on the must have list.) The angler drops the bait to bottom, then takes up several turns of the reel to suspend the bait in the snapper zonekeeping an eye on the sonar will help you put the bait where the sh are. The snappers take it from there. When you feel a bite, you reel like mad and hopefully the circle hook digs in. Jerking on the rod to set the hook rarely works when using circle hooks; just keep tension on the line and reel very fast and the sh will usually set the hook itself. Red snapper these days typically average 5 to 8 pounds, but there are many, many of 10 pounds and more, and 20-pounders are not unheard of. The limit is two per angler per day, minimum size 16 inches. Red snapper are among the tastiest of all sh, and are great broiled, fried or baked. FRANK SARGEANT | Special to The News One way to reach great red snapper shing is to board one of the many party boats operating out of Panhandle ports. PARTY BOATS AND CHARTERS FOR SNAPPER You dont have to have your own boat to go red snapper shing; the Panhandle area between Panama City and Pensacola has one of the largest and most active reef shing eets in the nation, and any angler interested in a trip can readily nd just the right boat for his buddies or his family. Prices range from around $350 for a half-day to $800 for a full day, and that fee can be split by up to six anglers on most boats. Party boats or head boats are also numerous in Panhandle ports, and these big boats can handle up to 40 anglers, at prices typically around $45 each for four hours, $65 each for six hours. Kids under 5 are not accepted on some offshore boatscheck in advance. RELEASING SNAPPER Fish caught from deep water frequently have issues with the rapid pressure change as they are brought aboard they blow up like a balloon, and are unable to swim when put back over the side. Since the limit on red snapper is just two sh daily, its common for anglers to release much of their catch these days, and improving survival of these sh makes good conservation senseas well as being required by state and federal law. Improving survival depends on several steps. 1. Use circle hooks so that the hook is unlikely to be swallowed. 2. Get the hooks out promptly with an efcient hook-removing tool or long-nose pliers. 2. Dont let the sh fall on the deck. 3. If you want a photo, make it quickly. 4. Use either a deating tool or a deeprelease descender device like the Seaqualizer ( www.seaqualizer.com ) to help the sh get back down to bottom safely. Descender devices include large weights to which the sh is hooked and lowered back to a comfortable depth, then released. 5. Which ever device you use, do it promptly minutes out of water are the biggest enemy to survival. FFW CC | Special to The News Red snapper are usually found near bottom structure, but often suspend above it, unlike groupers which tend to stay close to the cover. Special to The News Gardening is an age-old activity that was once a necessity but has transformed into a hobby for thousands of people. While gardening still serves practical purposes, many gardeners still consider it a hobby rst and foremost. Time-tested gardening techniques have prevailed, but there remain certain myths about gardening that are best dispelled. The following are some of the more common myths associated with gardening. M YT H: C ompost tea is more effective than traditional compost. All over North America and the United Kingdom, gardeners have jumped on board the compost tea bandwagon. Compost tea is a fertilizer created by steeping compost in water mixed with sugar in brewing kits. The mixture is allowed to sit and aerate to encourage benecial organism growth before it is sprayed on plants. According to supporters, compost tea suppresses disease and boosts plant yields. However, there is no evidence to suggest that compost tea works any better than adding compost in its normal state to the soil. In fact, leaving buckets of the tea around to ferment could actually create a breeding ground for E coli and other bacteria. M YT H: Plants under stress should be fertilized. This is not the case. Horticulturists advise that fertilizing plants that are not decient in nutrients can actually add to existing stress levels for plants. Plants are not often stressed by a lack of food, but rather heat, faulty planting or space constraints. A fed plant will use the energy to absorb the nutrients instead of defending against a blight or establishing better root systems. M YT H: Y oung trees need stakes. It might be tempting to stake that little sapling to protect it against the weather and strong winds, but doing so might actually work against the foundling tree. Staking trees to inhibit swaying might not stimulate the tree to grow thicker, lower trunks that will help the tree in the long run. The Royal Horticultural Society recommends that saplings be staked for around one year and then have the stakes removed to encourage the tree to be strong and stable on its own. M YT H: Water droplets and sunshine lead to burnt leaves. Gardeners have been told to resist watering their plants during the hottest times of the day. Many assume its because water droplets lying on leaves will magnify the suns rays and burn the leaves. According to Dr. Gabor Horvath at the Eoetvoes University in Budapest, water droplets will rarely damage plants because the drops are too close to the leaves to cause burning before they evaporate. Watering during the hottest points of the day is not advised because water evaporates and gets wasted. M YT H: Sand added to clay soil makes it looser and better for plants. Clay soil is a deterrent to gardening because it can be so hard to dig and difcult to cultivate, but some feel its best to add sand to the clay to make it a better soil mixture. You would need a great deal of sand to do this in the right manner, but many gardeners simply dig a hole, add sand and hope for the best. However, water runoff will pool in the sand and not be absorbed by the clay, potentially causing the plants to drown. M YT H: A dding compost or potting soil to the planting hole for a tree or shrub is benecial. Gardeners frequently add compost or potting soil to the hole where the root ball of a tree or shrub will be placed. But this encourages the roots to grow only in this nutrient-rich area, rather than spreading throughout the landscape to form a stronger and more durable root system. If you are going to amend the soil, do so evenly across the landscape. M YT H: Use gravel or rocks in the bottom of planting containers to improve drainage. Rocks and gravel can actually impede the growth of plants and take away space for roots to grow. The drainage might be affected as well, as water will sit above the gravel or stones and saturate the roots. Stick with plain soil for better drainage results. A variety of gardening myths still prevail. Over time, behaviors can be changed if gardeners learn to separate myths from facts. Weed out gardening myths from facts

The benets of delaying Social Security Special to The News Washington County residents who are nearing retirement age can increase their lifetime income if they can wait a bit to start drawing Social Security benets. In Washington County, 194 residents or 12.8 percent of the population are aged 55 to 64. Those are the years when folks start thinking seriously about retirement. Workers can start taking Social Security at age 62. But for those who can wait, the benets go up. If you need Social Security early, take it youve earned it, said Virginia Reno with the National Academy of Social Insurance, a nonprot organization based in Washing ton, D.C. But waiting even a year or two can make a big difference in the long run. The extra benets are there for life. Payments increase by ve to seven per cent for each year of delay between ages 62 and 66, and by eight percent for each year of delay between ages 66 and 70. The increases stop at age 70. For someone who can wait until age 70 to take Social Security, the reward is a lifetime monthly benet that is 76 percent higher than if taken at age 62. For example, a worker who qualies for a Social Security benet of $750 at age 62 would receive $1,000 by waiting until full retirement age (66 for people born in 1943 to 1954). By waiting until age 70, the retiree would receive $1,320 a month. The higher benet would also be the ba sis for future ination adjustments. Around Florida, only about one in four residents who are currently receiving So cial Security retirement benets waited until full retirement age to start their pay ments, according to the Social Security Administration. In Washington County, 3,755 residents re ceived retirement benets from the federal system, according to 2012 gures. The average recipient of Social Security retirement benets in Washington County received $1,102 a month in December of that year. On an annual basis, that brought $49,644,000 in income to the area 8 percent of all personal income in the county, accord ing to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Getting the most out of Social Security benets becomes more important the lon ger retirees live, said Leticia Miranda, a pol icy adviser with the National Council of La Raza, a nonprot that focuses on Hispanic issues, including retirement. You may be here longer than you think, Miranda said. About half of seniors aged 65 to 69 get most of their income from Social Security. Many have other assets or work part time. But for three out of four seniors in their 80s, Social Security is the main source of income. Nationally, a woman who is 65 years old today can expect to live until she is 86. For men, its 84 years. Another consideration is how the tim ing of benets will affect a spouses income, Reno said. If you are the higher earner in a couple, delaying benets not only means a higher benet for you for the rest of your life, she said. It also means a higher benet for your spouse if she or he outlives you in old age. In more than half of couples who are 65 today, one spouse will live beyond 90, she said. But residents of nonmetropolitan areas like Washington County may have a harder time delaying their retirement. In rural areas, there is often a chal lenge as folks move toward retirement, said Deanna Sharpe, a personal nance profes sor at the University of Missouri. They are more likely to face unemployment. Jobs are not as available. And when they are, they tend to pay less. Economic downturns can also affect when people decide to start receiving Social Security, Sharpe said. One of the coping mechanisms during the recent recession was to pick up Social Security at age 62, even if they might not have planned to do that before the reces sion, she said. Retirees need to make informed deci sions, Sharpe said, but too often that doesnt happen. We nd in surveys of nancial literacy that quite a large portion of folks dont un derstand the basics, she said. Thats a concern. But retirees can easily nd free or lowcost advice. Sharpe said many USDA Exten sion Service ofces can provide information on retirement planning. She also recom mended nonprot organizations such as the National Endowment for Financial Coun seling and Financial Education (www.nefe. org). The Social Security Administration web site (ssa.gov) has a calculator that allows workers to estimate their retirement earn ings based on their own work records and estimated retirement age. And the National Academy of Social In surance has materials online about the ef fects of delaying Social Security benets (www.nasi.org/WhenToTakeSocialSecurity). With national discussions about Social Se curity frequently in the news, some workers may worry whether the system will be there when they need it. Sharpe said people should stay abreast of the issues. Thats part of making an informed decision, she said. But Reno said that should not inuence a personal decision about when to draw benets. Social Security will be there if you wait, she said. The system is fully nanced for about the next two decades and is threequarters nanced thereafter, she said. Despite what you may hear, lawmakers have some good options to x the system for the long haul, she said. ROULHAC NAMED TOP EMPLOYEE

As such, it is important to remember that summer poisoning hazards can threaten your familys health, especially children. The Florida/USVI Poison Information Center Jacksonville urges you to remain aware of these hazards that occur most often during the summer. Children are out of school for the summer and may be spending more time unsupervised in or out of doors with ready access to potentially dangerous chemicals, plants and home products, cautions Dr. Jay Schauben, director of the Florida/USVI Poison Information CenterJacksonville. Poison proof your home and outdoor areas by following a few simple tips to reduce the chance of accidental poisoning emergencies. However, if a poisoning emergency does occur, dont search the Internet; call the Poison Center Help line immediately at 1-800222-1222. Our Specialists in Poison Information will give you the right answer the rst time. INSECT REPELLENT Be sure to read the label on every insect repellent and follow directions carefully. Be aware that most contain DEET, and repeatedly applying a product with DEET can increase the risk of harmful effects. When using repellent on a child, adults should place a little on your own hands, and then rub them on your child. Avoid the eyes and mouth. Do not spray on childrens hands as they tend to rub their eyes and place their hands or ngers in their mouths. After returning indoors, wash treated skin with soap and water. C HARCOAL L I GHTER FLU I D When accidentally swallowed, this can lead to difculty breathing and lung damage. Call the Poison Center Help line immediately at 1-800222-1222. Do not induce vomiting as this can make it worse. Keep these products in their original containers and prevent access to them by children. T RAVEL I NG AND C AMP I NG Remember to program your cell phone with the nationwide tollfree Poison Center Help line: 1-800-222-1222. Store medications, personal products, insect repellent or sunscreen, in locked suitcases away from children. Avoid bringing along a few pills in unmarked containers as these may not be child-resistant and they are unlabeled as to content or quantity. For visitors who are not used to the activity of children, remind them to properly store all personal products, especially prescription items, out of the reach and sight of children. When camping, be careful of the underbrush, as it could contain poison ivy or stinging/biting animals. Remember, Leaves of three, let it be. If someone touches poison ivy, immediately rinse with plenty of running water for at least 15 minutes. For poisonous plant and animal contact, immediately call the Poison Center Help line at 1-800-222-1222 for treatment information. F OOD PO I SON I NG Always wash hands, cutting boards, utensils, and dishes with hot, soapy water after handling raw meat, poultry, or seafood Store, cook, and reheat food at the proper temperatures. Do not let food sit out at room temperature for more than two hours.

All past Miss CHS winners are invited to attend and be recognized at this years pageant. Please leave a message at the CHS of ce at 638-6100 if you will be able to attend. After the pageant, FBLA members started preparing for district competitions. There are about 70 competitions from which to choose. Sixteen members competed in January. Those who quali ed to go to the State Leadership Conference in April were Katie Griggs (agribusiness), Jenna Kindig and Austin Wyatt (business math), Prince Menckeberg and Matt Mosely (entrepreneurship); ErinWright and Savannah Orr (health care administration) and Trista Waits (job interview). Some competitions were two parts, an online test and a performance test. Because of other school conicts, however, Trista Waits and Austin Wyatt were the only ones to attend the state competition with Mrs. Kersey. Other activities throughout the year included fundraising for the March of Dimes, a State FBLA project and several canned food drives for our local food bank. Several social events were held to celebrate competitions and fundraising efforts. Of cers this year were: President Prince Menckeberg, Vice President rst semester Darby Jones, second semester Alyssa Gainer; Secretary Kyra McDonald and Treasurer Erin Wright. Next years president will be Alyssa Gainer. Elections for other of cers will be at the beginning of the 2014-15 school year. School A8 | Washington County News Saturday, June 14, 2014 Chipola launches new two-day schedule for fall Special to The News MARIANNA Chipola College of cials are rolling out a new academic schedule for the fall semester which begins in August. The new plan offers the possibility for students to register for a two-day schedule and attend classes only two days a week. Sarah Clemmons, senior vice president of instruction, said, This new schedule will provide another option for students in addition to online classes, evening classes, and a three or four-day schedule. Other colleges with a two-day schedule option report that it is popular with students who wish to commute fewer days of the week. Longer class periods also may be better for courses scheduled in labs. Typically under the old Chipola schedule, a threehour class would meet three times a week for 50 minutes each time. With the new schedule, a threehour class would meet only twice a week for 75 minutes. Clemmons reports that not all student schedules will be able to plan a twoday schedule depending on the classes required for particular academic plans or courses already completed. Some courses offered are single section or require various co-requisites depending on the students major or chosen transfer institution. Fall 2014 application deadline for new students is Aug. 6 Chipola offers the Bachelor of Science Degree, the Associate in Arts Degree, the Associate in Science Degree, Workforce Development programs and Industry Certi cations. Bachelors Degrees include Science Education Middle Grades ( ve through nine); Biology Education Secondary Grades (six through 12); Mathematics Education Middle Grades ( ve through nine); Mathematics Education Secondary Grades (six through 12); English Education, Exceptional Student Education and Elementary Education; Business Administration with concentrations in Management or Accounting; and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The Associate in Arts degree is designed for students who plan to complete their rst two years of college work and then transfer to a four-year program at Chipola or another college or university. Credits earned are transferable and are applicable toward a bachelors degree.

FAITH Wednesday, June 14, 2014 Page A9 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com My father was a rather reserved person. He did not have much to say except when he was talking about his hunting or shing adventures, and to hear from him. It was always an adventure. When he got started on one of his stories, you better just sit back and forget about everything else. Outside of that, he was rather quiet and reserved and did not have much to say. I always liked that about him for a variety of reasons. I think I take after him in that regard. I just do not have time to hear somebody bloviate on something I am not interested in. For one, my father had no time at all for politics. I am not sure if he was a Republican or Democrat, but I knew he voted every election. Son, he often said, you dont have to take sides one way or the other. When Im with a Democrat, I talk Democrat and when Im with a Republican, I talk Republican. The only thing that matters is what I do when I get in that voting booth. This attitude of his, since Fathers Day is coming up, was something that made a deep impression upon me. Following his counsel has kept me out of quite a few battles throughout the years, especially when I got married. I can never remember my father arguing with my mother. Now, my mother argued with my father, but he never reciprocated. If you want a happy home, he once advised, make sure everybody in the home was happy particularly the one you married. That has helped me through many sticky situations for which I am eternally grateful. Another bit of advice he gave me was simply that you do not have to ght every battle. Only ght those battles, he said with a sly smirk on his face, that you know you can win. I mentioned that he was rather reserved in his speaking, but there was one area where he was profusely proactive. That was in the area of discipline, especially directed toward me. My father was not much different from any of the fathers during that time and they all believed in the biblical admonition, Spare the rod and spoil the child. These fathers were united in making sure none of their children would be spoiled. One rule we had in the house that I did not fully agree with was, if you got a spanking in school (and in those days we got spankings in school) you got a spanking at home. Talk about double dipping! The assumption was that the teacher was right and that the one receiving the spanking was wrong. Back then, 99.9% of the time that was true. The spanker was in charge, the spankee took it like a man and you know where. I spent 12 years in the public education system and during that time, my teacher was never wrong. I will not divulge how many times I was wrong, that is between me and the area I sit on. I clearly remember that my teachers back then had what was called the Hickory stick. And boy did those teachers know how to use that Hickory stick and where it would do the most good. My father did not have a Hickory stick as such. Hanging on the wall in the kitchen was an old wooden paddle engraved with, I need thee every hour. I am surprised that that one wooden paddle lasted during my entire childhood. I made one mistake during those childhood days. I was going through a period where the paddle and my bottom were close friends. I was getting a little weary of such friendship and decided I would do something about it. My father had gone to work early that day, as I remember it now, and I was going out the door to go to school when a thought danced in my head. I would take that paddle and dispose of it so that it could no longer be attached to my person. With the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, it was not a perfect plan. I had forgotten about that and two days later, I got into some trouble. It was the kind of trouble that could be resolved only by that wooden paddle. My father went to get the paddle and to his chagrin, and my posterior harm, it was not there. Very seldom did my father paddle me when he was really angry. There was one case when that happened, and this was it. I will not repeat the lecture that he gave at that time, but I will say that it had a lasting impression upon my posterior. At that time, I wished he had been a man of fewer words. I know times have changed, but I am not sure they have changed for the better. There was a time when parents were in charge of children and responsible for the discipline. Sadly, that day is far gone. The only thing I would say is, are we better off today than we were back then? The Bible admonishes us, And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Discipline, not abuse, is drastically needed among our children today. My father would put it this way, lack of discipline is a form of abuse. The Rev. James L.
