By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com A trafc violation re sulted in a Graceville man facing charges for metham phetamine posses sion charges. Chipley Police pulled Roy Thomas, Jr., 57 of Graceville, over in a routine trafc stop after observing a traf c violation Friday, June 13. Ofcers discov ered the vehicle had never been registered, and the li cense plate expired in 2011. Thomas was also driving on a suspended license, a fact he acknowledged to of cers, according to police. According to reports, ofcers noticed Thomas exhibiting behavior con sistent with someone under the inuence of methamphetamines. Thomas was placed under arrest, and ofcers began searching his per son before placing him in the patrol car. During that search, ofcers found a container which held an un disclosed amount of methamphetamine. Thomas was then placed under arrest and trans ported to the Washington County Jail where he was booked on the charges of possession of a metham phetamine, failing to regis ter a motor vehicle, driving while license suspended or revoked, and display of drivers license known to be suspended or revoked. We continue to ght the drug problem in our com munity, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. The Chipley Police Department will aggressively confront users and dealers of illegal narcotics to deter this ac tivity. I strongly encourage anyone with information regarding illegal activity to contact the Chipley Police Department. Reports of illegal drug activity may be reported to the police department at 638-6310, or anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers of Washington County at 638-TIPS. ROY THOMAS, JR. Trafc stop leads to meth arrest and were trying to free the Jeep when Shores arrived and told them to get off the property. The two men then fol lowed Shores to the back of the house where they beat him with a garden hoe, bound his hands and feet, and left him face down in the grass. After attempting and failing to light the still-living Shores on fire, the men killed him with a shotgun blast to the back of the head before stealing his 2011 Toyota Camry. A panel of senior pros ecutors with the State Attorneys Office will meet within the next few months to review the case and determine whether it meets the statutory re quirements to pursue the death penalty.

Not in that extortion type way airlines have of tacking money onto airfare and sending random bags to Abu Dhabi, but rather in the manner of What were you thinking when you packed this bag? Excited anticipation is no doubt responsible for the mountainous pile of luggage recently sitting by my front door the one with at least three more bags than the number of children going, packed at least three days before the SS Nana was set to dock in the driveway. Not wanting to discourage the children from the I can do it myself spirit, but also knowing Nana had limited vehicle space, it seemed prudent to double check the kids packing skills. Sure enough, therein lay everything from inexplicable wardrobe choices to strange contraband, such as the orange trick-or-treat pail my son, Aidan, insisted he needs for the trip. Its for the treats, my 10year-old said seriously. Nana will have treats. His earnest insistence was so humorous, the pails jack-o-lantern face even seemed to widen its grin. S tep 2: After repacking the bags, reinforce home training. Of course, we parents like to think our offspring behave when were not around, but its best to reinforce some basics: OK, kids, be sure to say maam and sir. When its mealtime, use table manners and utensils. No ghting, and dont put Grandmas dachshund in the clothes dryer. (It happens.) S tep 3: Dont panic when the grandparents are late. This is when the children will ght over who gets to sit where, ask varied versions of When are we leaving?, and attempt to sneak trickor-treat pails back into their bags. Take a deep breath. Wipe your brow and repeat, Its only for a little while. Start counting the minutes. S tep 4: Take preemptive action. When Nana arrives, open the door slowly to protect her from the stampede of adoring grandchildren. She will distract them while you help Papa load the bags and listen to his tales of trafc terror. S tep 5: Review. Go over the list of any medications Nana might need for the visit both for her and the children. Make the rounds to get hugs, kisses and promises to be good from each child. Finally, let the noticeable silence settle while watching the tail lights fade. Take a deep breath. Wipe your eyes and repeat, Its only for a little while. Start counting the minutes.

Todays writing is a synopsis of the life of John Edwin Baldwin, who was born in Graceville September 7, 1921 to Bartlett Augustus Baldwin and Mattie Baldwin. The story revolves around the young man who hitchhiked to Gainesville in 1939, enrolled in the University of Florida and departed with a Masters Degree in Agriculture in 1944. He was hired at Ponce De Leon High School as a Vocational Agriculture Teacher soon afterwards. He was assigned hall duty along with a young Home Economics intern, Monetha Smithgall, whose parents, Benjamin Smithgall and Annie Neta Brigman Smithgall, lived at nearby Ponce De Leon Springs. This couple purchased this beautiful natural springs property in 1925 and proceeded to build a house, a wooden wall around the springs area for swimming. Two bath houses were added along with a concession stand, skating rink and sun sheds. This facility fast became an attraction for the young people in the area who enjoyed it as a recreational attraction until its closure in 1958. It is presently owned and operated by the Florida Park Service as a tourist park. Mr. Benjamin Smithgall met and married his wife, Miss Brigman, a Westville native, while he worked as a sawyer for the giant sawmill in Caryville in the late 1920s and early 1930s. His job was keeping the mammoth lumber cutting saws sharpened, oiled and maintained for the performance the machines were called upon to do daily. Factor in the Prattler becoming acquainted with James Jeral Smithgall, son of the above couple, when he entered the University of Florida as a freshman in 1949, with a determination to receive a Mechanical Engineering Degree. This he did in a timely manner with his rst job being with International Paper Company in Panama City. Guess who became next door neighbors soon after Jeral had married his Westville sweetheart, Delores Hicks, daughter of Lewis Hicks and Lee Artis Yates Hicks? You guessed it right and they have been our dear friends for almost 60 years! Lets rewind back to the story to the new young teachers in Ponce De Leon High School. As advisor to the Vocational Agriculture program at the school, John Edwin Baldwin borrowed a wash pot from Monethas father to boil peanuts for a Future Farmers of America social vent. The father, known for his quick wit, when loaning the wash pot, offered Mr. Baldwin anything else I have, except for my daughter. When he teacher returned the cooking utensil, he announced to the father that he come for his daughter. The father consented, Monetha said yes and the couple were married on a sunny day in December 1944. From that day until his death at her bedside on May 28, 2014, their love never wavered. She was the love of his life. Soon after the marriage, John and Monetha took full time teaching positions at Paxton High School. John served as the schools FFA sponsor and one of its rst basketball coaches. He named their team the Bobcats after noticing the word emblazoned on a discarded candy wrapper. He served as the towns Mayor from 1954-1955 and was a central gure in the towns incorporation. John served as Superintendent of Walton County Schools from 1961-1977. He was a driving force behind the creation of Okaloosa-Walton Junior College. John left public administration in 1977 and returned to the class room, teaching Vocational Agriculture until retirement. Amidst the demands of public service, John always found time to relax and recharge, enjoying frequent trips to the nearby woods and elds for hunting quail and dove in the company of friends and family. Johns inner strength was continually renewed by a lifelong faith in God. He was a dedicated congregant of the United Methodist Church of Paxton for six decades. He taught Sunday School there until declining health slowed his attendance in recent years. In addition to his devotion as an educator, public servant and follower of Christ, John was a model husband, father, grandfather and friend. John Edwin Baldwin is survived by his beloved wife of 69 tears, Monetha Smithgall Baldwin. His sons are John Rand Baldwin (Charlotte) of Madison, Alabama and Benjamin Edwin Baldwin (Lagram Saunders) of Tallahassee. There are two grandchildren, Dr. John Arthur Baldwin (Brittany) of Boston, MA and Dr. Marielle Christina Baldwin (Martin McDermott) of Birmingham, Ala.; and his twin great-grandsons, John Henry and Benjamin Arthur Baldwin of Boston, MA. Preceding him in death were his parents, six brothers, Robert, Douglas, Joseph, Bernard, Jim Ned and Buddy and sister, Mary Lou Tommey. Funeral Services were held Saturday, June 7, 2014, at the First United Methodist Church in Florala with interment following in Paxton Cemetery. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Evans Funeral Home, 1972 North 6th St. in Florala, Alabama. It has been the Prattlers honor and privilege to write this tribute to John Edwin Baldwin, whom I knew only casually, saw very few times, but heard many glowing and complimentary comments from Jeral and Delores Smithgall as to his quality of character and his many efforts to lead those in his charge as teacher, mentor and role model. See you next week. John Edwin Baldwin of Paxton, Fla., was born Sept. 7, 1921, and passed away May 28, 2014. PERRYS PRATTLE Were hearing from folks who think understaffed VA facilities have ignored veterans, yet they dont want Veterans Affairs to get another dime in funding. Similarly, some area residents want better roads and schools but think its unseemly to spend taxpayers dollars such as the nearly $2 billion that state Sen. Don Gaetz has snagged for Northwest Florida improving them. Were confused. We dont know how government can widen roads and build schools without spending money. And since government has no money of its own, it levies taxes. Taxation is burdensome and often unfair. Thats why, when state tax revenue is divvied up in Tallahassee, wed rather not see all of it go to Central and South Florida. Wed rather see a big chunk of it come back here, to Northwest Florida, so that it can buy infrastructure that will benet the people who surrendered those dollars in the rst place. This is called bringing home the bacon. Its what politicians do. Its what Sen. Gaetz of Niceville, the outgoing Senate president, did quite well in the legislative session just ended. In a couple of recent stories, the Daily News Tom McLaughlin outlined the state funding destined for our area. It ranges from $60,174 for the Sinfonia symphony to $440 million in Florida Education Finance Program dollars for Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa county schools. I am particularly pleased with the increase in education funding to the K-12 districts, said Sen. Gaetz, himself a former school superintendent. Also set aside are $6.5 million to study options for bridges between Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island; $4.4 million for a wastewater facility at Mossy Head Industrial Park; tens of millions of dollars for transportation projects and career technical education; and money for Destins East Pass dredging, a STEMM middle school and other worthy endeavors. Clearly, it helps when the Senate president is from your area. Thanks, Sen. Gaetz. Now lets hope the agencies and organizations receiving all this money will spend it wisely.

Georgia $117 to $124 Alabama $122 to $127 Florida most vulnerable to killer tornadoes WASHINGTON (AP) Oklahoma and Kansas might have the reputation as tornado hot spots, but Florida and the rest of the Southeast are far more vulnerable to killer twisters, a new analysis shows. Florida leads the country in deaths calculated per mile a tornado races along the ground, followed by Tennessee, North Carolina, Ohio and Alabama, according to an analysis of the past three decades by the federal Southeast Regional Climate Center at the University of North Carolina. Thats because Florida is No. 1 in so many factors that make tornadoes more risky: mobile homes, the elderly and the poor, said center director Charles Konrad II, who headed the new work. People are just much more vulnerable in a mobile home than they are in a regular home, Konrad said. Floridas death rate of 2.4 deaths per 100 miles of tornado ground track is more than two-and-a-half times that of Oklahoma and almost ve times that of Kansas. Along with Florida, Dixie Alley including Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, western parts of the Carolinas is where more people die from tornadoes than anywhere else in the world, said Conrad. Three years ago, a fourday outbreak of more than 200 tornadoes killed 316 people in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia. Florida doesnt get as many tornadoes as Oklahoma and they arent as strong, but when Florida does get them, people are especially vulnerable, Konrad said. He presented the research at an American Meteorological Society meeting in Colorado this week. Konrads work makes sense and ts with earlier research on tornado fatalities, said Florida State University meteorology professor James Elsner and Barb Mayes Boustead, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologist and tornado chaser. Visibility is another problem for tornadoes in the Southeast. Because of atmospheric conditions, the region tends to get more tornadoes at night, making them harder to see, Konrad said. It also means some people might be asleep and miss warnings. The South also has more trees and buildings to block the view of oncoming tornadoes, Konrad said. And they also tend to come from low-hanging clouds, making them harder to see.

Local A6 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 18, 2014 Po litical adv er tisemen t paid fo r and appr ov ed by Ge ra rd Vi rg a fo r Judge Congressional map legality awaits Florida judges ruling TALLAHASSEE (AP) A Florida judge deciding a landmark trial has been given starkly different views of whether legislators vio lated the law and drew up new congressional districts in 2012 in a way to help Re publicans be more easily elected. The 12-day trial over the maps wrapped up ear lier this month. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis, who is decid ing the case, required the two sides to submit closing written statements, which they did last week. They dis agree sharply over whether legislators did anything illegal. Lewis is expected to rule by the end of the month. The judge could call on the Legis lature to redraw the districts, but it is likely the case will be appealed no matter who wins. The trial marks the rst test of a 2010 constitutional amendment approved by voters that said legislators no longer could draw up dis tricts to favor incumbents or members of a political party. Attorneys for the groups suing the Legislature, which include the League of Wom en Voters, contend the testi mony during the trial proved that what legislators did was the very antithesis of what voters demanded. Although legislative de fendants repeatedly repre sented they were conducting an open, transparent, and non-political redistricting process, the evidence at trial revealed a separate, highly partisan process conducted in the shadows, states the legal brief submitted by the groups attorneys. They pointed to several pieces of evidence including testimony that a top House aide shared maps with a Re publican consultant before they were made public. An other map, which resembled one put together by one con sultant, was submitted in the name of a college student who said under oath he had nothing to do with it. The groups suing the Legislature also noted that legislative re cords, including emails, were deleted soon after lawmakers approved the new maps. The brief asked Lewis to throw out the entire map, but it also took aim at several districts as unconstitutional, including a district that winds from Jacksonville to Orlan do and is held by U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown. Attorneys allege legislators packed Democrats in Browns dis trict in order to make it easier for Republicans in adjoining districts. Legislative attorneys, meanwhile, assert that the evidence produced during the trial did not prove that legislators intended to draw districts to help Republicans. They said efforts by GOP con sultants never merged with legislators and no one outside infected the sterile ways of the redistricting suites. The attorneys for the House and Senate said the case was built on a pyramid of inferences, a series of men tal gymnastics and that the judge would have to believe that every single witness in cluding the current House Speaker and Senate presi dent lied under oath about their activities. WASHINGTON (AP) A divided Supreme Court sided with gun control groups and the Obama administration Monday, ruling that the federal government can strictly enforce laws that ban a straw purchaser from buying a gun for someone else. The justices ruled 5-4 that the law applied to a Virginia man who bought a gun with the intention of transferring it to his uncle in Pennsylvania even though the uncle is not prohibited from owning rearms. The decision split the court along familiar ideological lines, although it has no direct bearing on the Second Amendment right to own guns. It settles a split among appeals courts over federal gun laws intended to prevent sham buyers from obtaining guns for the sole purpose of giving them to another person. The laws were part of Congress effort to make sure rearms did not get into the hands of unlawful recipients. Writing for the majority, Justice Elena Kagan said the federal governments elaborate system of background checks and record-keeping requirements help law enforcement investigate crimes by tracing guns to their buyers. Those provisions would mean little, she said, if a wouldbe gun buyer could evade them by simply getting another person to buy the gun and ll out the paperwork. Putting true numbskulls to one side, anyone purchasing a gun for criminal purposes would avoid leaving a paper trail by the simple expedient of hiring a straw, Kagan said. Her opinion was joined by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often considered the courts swing vote, as well as liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor. In dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia said the language of the law does not support making it a crime for one lawful gun owner to buy a gun for another lawful gun owner. He was joined by the courts other conservatives Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. The case began after Bruce James Abramski Jr. bought a Glock 19 handgun in Collinsville, Va., in 2009 and later transferred it to his uncle in Easton, Pa. Abramski, a former police ofcer, had assured the Virginia dealer he was the actual buyer of the weapon even though he already had offered to buy the gun for his uncle using his expired police identication to get a discount. Abramski purchased the gun three days after his uncle had written him a check for $400 with Glock 19 handgun written in the memo line. During the transaction, Abramski answered yes on a federal form asking Are you the actual transferee buyer of the rearm(s) listed on this form? Warning: You are not the actual buyer if you are acquiring the rearm(s) on behalf of another person. If you are not the actual buyer, the dealer cannot transfer the rearm(s) to you. Police later arrested Abramski after they thought he was involved in a bank robbery in Rocky Mount, Va. No charges were led on the bank robbery, but ofcials charged him with making false statements about the purchase of the gun. A federal district judge rejected Abramskis argument that he was not a straw purchaser because his uncle was eligible to buy rearms, and the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals afrmed. The Obama administration had argued that accepting Abramskis defense would impair the ability of law enforcement ofcials to trace rearms involved in crimes and keep weapons away from people who are not eligible to buy them. This is a very big and very positive decision that will save lives by keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people, said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The National Rie Association sided with Abramski, asserting that the government wrongly interpreted the law and improperly expanded the scope of gun regulations. Twenty-six states also submitted a brief supporting Abramskis view of the law, while nine states and Washington, D.C., led papers bolstering the Obama administration. Scalia scoffed at the majoritys reading of the law, noting that if Abramski intended to buy the gun as a gift or to use as a rafe prize, the government would consider him the true buyer. If I give my son $10 and tell him to pick up milk and eggs at the store, no English speaker would say that the store sells the milk and eggs to me, Scalia said. Kagan responded with her own analogy: If I send my brother to the Apple Store with money and instructions to purchase an iPhone, and then take immediate and sole possession of that device, am I the person (or transferee) who has bought the phone or is he? Nothing in ordinary English usage compels an answer either way. High court upholds ban on straw gun purchases Legislative attorneys, meanwhile, assert that the evidence produced during the trial did not prove that legislators intended to draw districts to help Republicans. They said efforts by GOP consultants never merged with legislators and no one outside infected the sterile ways of the redistricting suites.

SPORT S www.chipleypaper.com A Section It had the potential to be one of those special weekends in sports that normally we dont tend to gush over because a pigskin isnt involved. By the way, only 10 Saturdays left until college football kicks off. We had other options heading into Fathers Day outside of a new tie pin or fancy aftershave cologne that might never come out of the bottle. The U.S. Open was being played at storied Pinehurst. There remained the possibility of key games in both the NHL and NBA nals. A little get-together called the World Cup was convening south of our border. All that in addition to the summer staples of the College World Series, NASCAR and Major League Baseball. Then reality set in. Which is: Good gawd, there still are 10 Saturdays left until the rst real live football game, discounting those gloried scrimmages that are the NFL exhibition season. Professional golf sans Tiger Woods is like an opera without an aria, and while Martin Kaymer was pulverizing Pinehurst No. 2 and the U.S. Open eld it lacked music altogether. Kaymer is no uke, and truly belongs in stature among the best players in the world, but when it comes to star power hes a candle. At least when Woods was leaving the U.S. Open dead on the oor viewers could be content they were watching history unfold. When Rory McIlroy pulled a disappearing act at Congressional he had a bit of swagger that shouted p-o-t-e-n-t-i-a-l combined with the pure innocence of youth. As good as Kaymer is, and he should win his second major this afternoon if he maintains his compass, hes more remindful of Bernhard Langer than Seve Ballesteros. If this guy gave a powerful st pump Mark Cuban would move to the other side of the street. Golf purists will tune in anytime Phil Mickelson is being cleared to land, but a possibility of a third consecutive day focusing on a battle for second place is as compelling as a Kansas ski jumping nal, even with two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton providing a feel-good interlude. Saturday merely was a prelude to nd out if well have a dramatic nish today, and in that sense didnt answer many questions. The spectacle of the Stanley Cup was eliminated from the mix on Friday night, but there remained Game 5 in the Spurs-Heat rivalry. Except that after what San Antonio did to Miami in South Beach earlier in the week tonights game has the relevance of a celebration more than a competition. Unless Miami can override a donot-resuscitate mandate, the pulse of this series beats about as fervently as the groundswell to start a Martin Kaymer fan club in Bay County. The World Cup? We dont even play until Monday, and lets be honest, U.S.-Ghana wont be confused for Texas-Oklahoma in early October. There remains the fallback of the CWS, albeit without Florida, Florida State, Miami or Alabama in the hunt. NASCAR? Michigan aint exactly the tricky triangle. And Major League Baseball has put up more zeroes this season than our ghter pilots in World War II. Without someone vaulting out of the pack at Pinehurst by shooting a score resembling Skip Bayless IQ, and LeBron putting up a similar number tonight in San Antonio, NBC and ABC are going to get as much attention as dads cologne.

Ebro: Feature races showcase even elds By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com Michael Maders payday was better than most this week. The former Marianna High School and Chipola College standout signed with the Miami Marlins on Friday after the team selected him in the compensatory third round of the Major League Baseball Draft. Mader, a left-handed pitcher, received a signing bonus of $499,500, which was every bit of what he was slotted to make based on the Marlins pool for the pick. He also received the standard college scholarship payment of $50,000, which can be used to nish his education upon leaving the organization. Mader had been in Miami for several days before nally nishing his deal early Friday. He passed his physical a day earlier and admitted while the process didnt take long, one week since being drafted, he was anxious to sign and start his professional career. He will earn at most $1,100 per month as part of a rst-year rookie contract. That gure isnt a concern given the upfront money he received after pitching two seasons for the Indians. Mader said he understands the business side of the game, but it still felt surreal to earn so much money for playing a game. He said he hadnt decided if he was going to splurge on any items before heading to the Marlins training facility and eventual minor league assignment. Another Chipola debut : Mader hopes to mirror the ascension of another former Indian, David Buchanan, who made his debut in Major League Baseball in May, four seasons after being selected in the seventh round by Philadelphia. The right-handed Buchanan was a sixth-round pick by the New York Mets in 2009 and didnt sign. He tossed ve innings with two strikeouts and no walks while giving up ve hits and two runs for the victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the debut. He has lost his last three decisions with 16 strikeouts, four walks and a 6.08 ERA in 23 2/3 innings. Buchanan, 25, has been a starter since his rst assignment in the minors in 2010. He had a career-high 28 appearances in two stops in 2013 and started this season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. On the mend: Another Lehigh Valley prospect, Clete Thomas, has missed a month with broken ribs. The Mosley and Auburn product last played on May 10 and has been on the disabled list since May 14. Hes batting .259 with one home run and 10 RBIs in 33 games for the IronPigs. Chipolas Mader signs with Marlins DOWN ON THE FARM Like us on WASHINGTON COUNTY NEWS/ HOLMES COUNTY ADVERTISER

Local A8 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 18, 2014 By ZACK McDONALD 747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Sgt. Patrick Tainsh held off an ambush with suppressive fire as long as he could. Medical personnel were able to move forward to a secure area in Baghdad because Tainsh kept the approaching insurgents at bay. It was February 2004, about a year after U.S. troops put boots on the ground in Iraq. Tainsh eventually collapsed from a mortal wound in the .50-caliber machine gunners nest. He was 33. Patrick never stopped firing, said his mother, Deborah Tainsh. He had been hit and never told anybody. Deborah and David Tainsh answered the door of their home in Panama City Beach about 6 a.m. days later to find an Army major and staff sergeant from Fort Benning, Ga., delivering the bad news. Their son was honored later, not only with a posthumous silver medal for bravery, but also with a barracks at Fort Benning bearing his name. He had been the best at spotting the enemy and taking them out, Deborah Tainsh said. The Tainshes are among the thousands of families who never saw their loved ones return from Iraq. Although U.S forces completed their withdrawal in December 2011, the insurgency has continued to cause thousands of casualties. Sunni militant groups have stepped up attacks targeting the countrys majority Shiite population to undermine confidence in the Shiiteled government. Figures gathered by the Iraq Body Count (IBC) project show casualties almost doubled in 2013 to 9,571 after a three-year lull. So far in 2014, 5,055 casualties have been reported by the IBC. Although many people praise the decision to withdraw ground troops from Iraq, the Tainsh family thinks the departure left a vacuum for the enemy to come in and take over, Deborah Tainsh said. All the families who have had to carry the folded ag now can only wonder: We did all this for what? she said. Tainsh has remained in contact with her sons Iraqi interpreter. From the interpreters reports and increased media coverage, Deborah Tainsh supports reviving military intervention in the region. The family says its reason comes from a letter Patrick Tainsh wrote to them in case he died in combat. It reads: Im writing you this letter because something went wrong. It may or may not have been my fault but it was time I came here to help some people out who couldnt help the situation they were subject to. Maybe someday they will be able to enjoy freedom as we do It was an honor to ght and die with an American ag on my shoulder. His greatest hope was that the Iraqi people would one day have their freedom, Deborah Tainsh said. He was willing to die with an American ag on his shoulders. If our political leaders dont do something, everything our child and thousands of others across the country have sacriced is all for naught.

Dunn, the daughter of Amber and Sean Dunn, is a fourth grade student at Bonifay Elementary School and contributes her success mainly to her teacher Heather Rich. She gave us a lot of one on one time and we had a lot of practice ex ercises, said Heather. She had even more practice with this years Tropicana Speech where she wrote about her friend with au tism, Gage, who is also a student of her mother. She helps in my class room quite often and has become good friends with Gage, said her mother, Amber. She received second place in her class. When shes not writing Heather said she likes playing softball and rid ing her four-wheeler and when she grows up she wishes to study to be a veterinarian. We are certainly proud of her, said Amber. She intrinsically mo tivated to do the best in all that she does, like softball and school. Were very proud of her achievements aca demically but were even more proud of her kindness and compassion with my kids; kindness is very important. Heartworm disease is transmitted to an animal through the bite of a mosquito carrying heartworm larvae, which eventually settle into the blood vessels of the lungs or within the heart itself. Although cats are less susceptible than dogs to heartworm infection, our feline friends are still very much at risk of heartworm disease. Cats have some innate resistance to infection, and the worms seem to prefer living in dogs rather than in cats, said Dr. Audrey Cook, an associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. In addition, the tests we traditionally use in dogs, such as the Knotts test and heartworm antigen tests are not very sensitive in cats as the number of worms is much lower. Dr. Cook explains that though more sensitive tests are now available, cats are still not routinely screened for infection. It is highly likely that many cats are infected but are simply not identied. Although it is more probable for outdoor cats to come into contact with infected mosquitoes, indoor cats still have a not-insignicant chance of contracting the infection. As infection requires a bite from an infected mosquito, indoor cats are less at risk overall, said Dr. Cook. However, we do still see this disease in strictly indoor cats, most likely occurring when an infected mosquito gets inside of the house and then bites the cat. Some of the most common heartworm disease symptoms include frequent coughing, weight loss, vomiting, lethargy, and difculty breathing. However, since many of the symptoms mimic those of asthma and other disorders, affected patients may be misdiagnosed. Although some cats are diagnosed because they show some of the clinical signs and the veterinarian then performs the appropriate tests, many cats are diagnosed with heartworm disease after suddenly dying and only then nding the worms in the heart or lungs, said Dr. Cook. The blood tests available have substantial limitations, and we sometimes only conrm the diagnosis by visualizing a worm in the heart using echocardiography. If a veterinarian suspects heartworm disease in a cat, he or she is likely to recommend radiographs (X-rays) of the chest, along with antigen and antibody testing. Depending on these results, an echocardiogram (ultrasound examination of the heart) may be indicated. Unfortunately, there are currently no approved treatments for feline heartworm disease. Veterinarians often recommend using medications to limit clinical signs such as coughing, and starting cats on preventative medications in order to stop future infection and hasten worm death. In addition, an antibiotic called doxycycline may be prescribed to the cat, as it is also thought to weaken the worms and hasten their death, said Dr. Cook. However, sometimes the death of the worm causes an acute and fatal reaction in the cat, so it is a very difcult disease for us to deal with. Indoor or outdoor, young or old, every cat is vulnerable to heartworm disease. Since there are no available treatments for this widespread infection, preventative medications administered on a regular basis are a must for protecting your feline friend.

Special to the News The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program supports good nutrition by providing low-income el ders living in select coun ties in Florida with cou pons that can be redeemed for locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables from participating farmers at lo cal farmers markets. The program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. Currently, only low-in come elders living in Wash ington counties may apply for the program, though it will expand as program funding increases. Upon application through the local lead agency, eligible elders receive $40 worth of coupons (10 coupons worth $4 each) that can be exchanged for fresh, lo cally grown produce. Cou pons are distributed on a rst-come, rst-served basis and continuing while funds are available. A wait ing list is kept for eligible elders who do not receive coupons due to a shortfall in available coupons. Cou pons may be used through July 31. Funds remaining from coupons that remain unspent on Aug. 1 are real located to direct purchase of pre-bundled produce or may be issued in the form of coupons, which are subse quently distributed to those on the waiting list and then to other eligible elders who also did not participate dur ing the coupon season. Only produce grown in Florida or within 50 miles of the market, and sold in its natural state, may be purchased with coupons. Coupons cannot be used to buy produce that a farm er has purchased from a wholesaler or non-local farmer, and they cannot be used to buy any processed foods. For a list of eligible fruits and vegetables, click here. The Department oper ates the program in coop eration with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which authorizes and trains the participating farmers, and with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension agencies, which provide nutritional educa tion materials for partici pating elders. The market will be open at 8 a.m. on Thursday, June 26, at the Washington County Council on Aging, located at 1348 South Blvd, in Chipley. Elders age 60 and older with an income not exceed ing 185 percent of the cur rent federal poverty guide lines are eligible. Federal poverty guidelines are up dated each year.Program dates: Coupons will be giv en out on June 26, 2014 and can be used until July 31 of each year. If all coupons are not spent, the funds re maining are reallocated in the form of coupons or used to purchase pre-bundled fall produce from enrolled farmers. The bundles are then distributed to eligible elders who did not receive coupons earlier in the year. Benet Levels: Current ly $40 per eligible house hold, per season.In accor dance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agri culture policy, this institu tion is prohibited from dis criminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

POWELL OBITUARIES Faith I have noticed lately that I have been getting in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, at least more than normal. I am at the stage of life where this kind of thing needs to be brought to a bare minimum. At the end of each month my wife will quiz me as to if I have paid all of the bills. In my rhetorical answer is always, I sure did, my lady. Then I will bow before her. For some reason she does not get the humor of that. Every once in a while I get in a little tickle mode and dramatically declare that I forgot to pay the bills for the month. The rst time I did that, she threw a smile in my direction. I dramatically would catch it and put it in my pocket. I notice she has not been throwing smiles at me lately. Honestly, who can blame her? It was towards the middle of the month when the cable went dead. We had no telephone, TV or Internet service. The rst thing my wife said was, You did pay the Comcast bill, didnt you? I put on my regular show and assured her that I did. We had to call the Comcast Company, but as it stood, we had no telephone service. Fortunately, my wife had her cell phone and called the Comcast Company to see what the problem was. I did pay the bill. In fact, I went to the checkbook and showed her the number of the check and the amount of the check. After about 45 minutes of waiting rather impatiently, my wife nally connected with the service representative who was able to help her. I did not hear the conversation, but I knew it must have been quite serious because I could see in her face that she was getting angrier by the minute. We paid our bill on time, she protested in a very stern manner. My husband has the check number to prove that he wrote the check out. I was sitting in my easy chair going through my briefcase enjoying the drama that was unfolding before me. I was gloating just a little bit and feeling pretty good about myself. I had my briefcase and was sorting out some papers and getting ready for the next day when I ran across a bunch of envelopes. I looked at them, then looked over at my wife, and then looked back at the pile of envelopes and all of the color drained from my face. I could not believe what I found in my briefcase. There in a neat bundle where all of the bills I had written out for the previous month. The checks had been written, signed and placed in the proper envelope with a postage stamp on it. I knew I had to face the music and it was not a song I enjoyed. I picked up the envelope with the Comcast bill address on the front, took it over to my wife as she was on the phone to the Comcast representatives, laid it on her lap and then walked away. David who got in a lot of trouble understood this when he wrote, I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah (Psalms 32:5). Swallowing pride or eating crow is not my idea of a delightful repast but it can be the beginning of something good. Rev. James L.
