SHIP was implemented in 1994, 20 years ago, and its been going through changes over time, said Ahlen. The guidance we receive is from Florida Statute 420 and the idea behind it was to provide local governments preservation of the housing stock and to preserve affordable housing for those low-low to moderate income families. She explained that the standards for assessing if those families are low-low to moderate income are by using HUD standards. Each local government is required to have housing assistance plan and in that plan there are four section, that include a program description of what SHIP is and a section called strategies, which are how the county chooses to use SHIP funds using state guidance as a back ground but counties are allowed to tweak it and how they want to use it. This becomes important because if you, for example, wanted to target a blighted area or maybe youre putting in sewer lines and you wanted to help low-income families connect to that sewer you could actually evolve a strategy and use SHIP funds to help those families, County to restart, recapture SHIP funding By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Unless they havent been on the Internet in the past several weeks, its not likely people in Washington County havent heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The department reports they have acquired several bikes over the past few months, most left abandoned throughout the city. Anyone who has lost their bike is asked to go to the Chipley Police Department and provide a description and or serial number to see if their bike is among those recovered. Deadline to identify bikes is Sept. 30. News BRIEF SHIP from page A1 said Ahlen. There also has to be incen tive strategies for contractors to want to do business with the SHIP program, such as expediting permitting. She said she is reviewing the pro cess to insure that the SHIP projects are moving along in a consistent manner. Currently the county has in place is called purchase assistance, where the SHIP program helps low to moder ate income families with closing costs and down payments to purchase a house and emergency rehabilitation, where money is used to repair homes. There is a strategy that we cur rently do not fund but is available if needed called the disaster relief strat egy, where, if funds become available, in case there is some event such as a hurricane that the Florida Housing Fi nance Cooperation would like you to as sist, said Ahlen. This is an emergency strategy. Now your assistance for your strategies can be in the form of a grant or a deferred payment loan. The deferred payment loan is a for givable loan, she explained, where the county can require the resident to pay it back and after a certain period time the county can forgive the loan. If that family does not choose to live at the residence for the required amount of time then the county can recapture those funds. It becomes important when they buy a house and youve assisted them with $10,000 in purchase assistance to purchase the house but then they de cided theyve got a better job in Orlan do and they need to sell the house, this is where you can recapture those funds to give to another family, said Ahlen. She then went to the topic of Local Housing Assistance Plan (LHAP) for the years 2011-2014, recommending a recapture feature for emergency rehabilitation. If a resident should win the lottery and decide to move then the county can request all the money re turned, interest free. Youd be surprised that it does hap pen, said Ahlen. You could also see how someone could manipulate the system by having assistance repairing a house, sell the house and receive as sistance again. Currently your emer gency rehabilitation is set to help only very low income families and wed like to recommend you change that to very low and low income families. There are set percentages of how much is spent on each category, such as 30 percent on very low income, 30 percent on low income and 40 percent on moderate income, she said, with the ability to take from moderate income if there isnt a need and add it to the lower incomes. You may not think that moder ate income is much but you may have teachers or police ofcers that fall into that category, said Ahlen. She also added modular homes were also covered in the purchase as sistance program. The county is still on hold for cur rent funds until the 2010-2011 is com plete because the change request was never returned but once they do pro vide the revisions and it is approved and cleared, then the current funds should be provided to the county for the current year, she explained. SOFTBALL from page A1 hopeful those will soon be lled but asks anyone interested in serving to contact Director Heather Lopez at 638-6013. In other action, the board: Approved to advertise three local events: Seacrest Wolf Preserves Howl-O-Ween event, set to take place Oct. 24-26 at the preserve; the Survival Preparedness and Homesteading Expo, scheduled for 9 a.m. Oct. 25-26 at the Possum Palace in Wausau; and the North Bay Veterans Pow Wow, hosted Nov. 14-16 by the North Bay Clan of the Lower Creek Muskogee Tribe at 1560 Lonnie Road in Chipley. Agreed to advertise the request for qualica tions to take bids on the printing of the brochure for the upcoming geocaching trail. Approved the 2014-2015 budget. SKINS from A1 night just one time before becoming well known for his rendition of the Oak Ridge Boys famous bass line from their hit Elvira. He sounded just like Richard Sterban from the Oak Ridge Boys, Grantham said. People would ran domly go up to him and ask him to sing just that one part. The history of Skins and Bubbas is proudly told on the restaurants menus and dates back to south Flor ida in the late 70s. Marco, who then weighed 150 pounds, was called Skins, and his friend Craig Elmore was known as Bubba. The pair love to cook barbecue and got together to cook for more than 400 people at Elmores dads company party. Word quickly spread of the tasty food, and they began cooking fund raisers and other events. When Marco moved to Chipley in 2001, he started Skins and Bubbas as a roadside barbecue stand on Falling Waters Road but expanded to a full restaurant facility by popu lar demand in 2005. Many faithful customers stopped in Monday to eat and pay their re spects. The usually bustling atmo sphere was quiet and somber, ac cording to staff and guests. He was just loved by everyone, Grantham said. If anyone at all was proud to serve the people of Wash ington County, it was Skins. The family is requesting dona tions be made in his memory to the Chipley Athletic Program or the Washington County 4-H livestock program. There will be about 30 sites, known as caches, and any one completing 15 of those and will receive a set of four pathway coins that commemorate something signi cant to the county. In addition to the Ver non Historical Society, commissioned coins will also represent the Washington County Historical Society and the TDC. To claim their coins, participants will download a grid sheet, which will be available on the ofcial world wide and state geo caching websites, as well as from the TDC. The caches will have codes, which the TDC will verify. The TDC says the trail will bring a welcomed boost to the local economy. In order to win, players will have to go in several quadrants of the coun ty, Lopez said. They cant really do all that in one day, so they will stay in our hotels and shop in our stores. Hopefully, they will see other things we have to offer and come back to en joy all aspects of our county. Vernon Historical Society Presi dent Angia Morris, who presented the idea to Vernon City Council members, is working with Washington County Tourist Development Director Heath er Lopez to designate caches in Vernon. We already have some geocaching sites here other people have established, Lopez said. But we wanted a trail that would be his tory-based, so were only putting caches at historical sites throughout the county. The trail will kick off Oct. 11 at Falling Waters State Park with the Caches, Critters, and Cars festival, which will include vendors and activities, such as a classic car show. Other action taken in the Aug. 25 meet ing included: Scheduling a budget workshop for 7 p.m. Sept. 2. Requesting City Attorney Mi chelle Tagert draw up a property deed for the Sportsplex. The Harris family of Vernon previously owned the property on which an easement lead ing into the complex was granted. The family recently decided to donate the property to the city. City Clerk Keith Adkison said the city is grateful for the familys generosity. Approved to pay an Animal Con trol Ofcer Certication Course in the amount of $585. Public Works Director Ronald Wood is slated to attend that training. Voted to change Public Works Di rector Ronald Wood to a ve-day work week, working from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CHALLENGE from page A1 the spinal cord. With voluntary muscle action pro gressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. The Ice Bucket Challenge is meant to raise awareness about the disease, with the general rule being those challenged either donate $100 to the ALS Association or get doused with ice water to symbolize the paralysis victims endure. Many ac cepting the challenge do both. Sheriff Haddock has now issued a challenge of his own to Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews, Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen and Walton Coun ty Sheriff Mike Adkinson. According to the rules, Haddocks fellow law enforcement friends have 24 hours to comply. As of Tuesday, Aug. 26, the Ice Bucket Challenge had raised $88.5 million.

The caller reported three persons yelling for help from the second oor of a residence. The individ uals stated they had been shot at and held hostage for several hours. When the ofcers arrived, the subjects initially refused to come outside because they feared the attackers still might be in the bottom oor of the house. Once contact was made, the two men and one woman reported they had been attacked by several persons but could not pro vide any descriptions. The female reported she had been stabbed and the knife broken off in her abdomen. Further investigation re vealed that she only had a supercial scratch to her abdomen. Furthermore, all of the injuries received by the individuals were self-inicted while attempting to ght off the attackers. The investigation re vealed that there was nev er anyone at the home be sides the three individuals and no one was attempting to cause them harm. The remains of a Shake and Bake meth lab was found in the residence along with several ingredients and items used to manufacture methamphetamines. Also discovered was a small amount of nished meth amphetamine product along with straws and pipes used to ingest, inhales, or smoke illegal narcotics. It appears in their al tered mental state, the subjects were hallucinat ing and believed they were being attacked. The three armed themselves with a 12-gauge shotgun and a .22 rie. About 40 rounds of 12-guage and unknown num ber of .22 rounds were red from inside the residence. Numerous windows were shot out and holes were shot in the walls. They completely removed a large rear window from the house on the second oor and threw the bath room sink at the imagi nary attackers. Chunks of sheetrock, wood, rearm parts and anything they could tear out of the resi dence was thrown outside including the toilet, which was ripped from the oor. In total, more than $10,000 in damage was done to the residence. Arrested were Mat thew Tyler McDaniel, 18, of Sneads, Damian Joseph Hines, 21, of Sneads and Madison Star Douglas, 18, of Marianna. All sus pects were charged with possession of metham phetamines, attempt to manufacture methamphet amines, felony criminal mischief and possession of drug paraphernalia. The suspects were booked into the Jackson County Cor rectional Facility to await rst appearance. Own a piece of local history Special to the News This brick is one of only 400 uncovered during the recent restoration work at the Chipley First United Methodist Church. These bricks were part of an inside chimney that served as the ue for the pot-bellied stove which was the original heating system for the church in 1907. Mr. Griff Godfrey, lifelong resident of Chipley and member of the church, gave the following historical information. These white bricks, along with all of the other white brick that was used in many construction projects in the Chipley area during the early 1900s, were made by Mr. Hall at his brick making business on what is now named Brickyard Road. Since these particular bricks were manufactured specically for use in a chimney, they were not nished but are very rough. Mr. Godfrey said that the white brick used in the construction of the old grammar school were also from this same brick yard. The Methodist Church is offering these bricks with a commemorative plate attached for a $100 donation for the restoration of the sanctuary. To purchase a brick, you can call the church ofce at 638-0010 or stop by the church ofce between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Jackson County Sheriffs Office arrests 1 on assault Special to The News At 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24, a deputy with the Jackson County Sheriffs Ofce was agged down by a resident in Green wood in reference to an assault. When the deputy en countered the suspect, Michael Hamm Jr., and ordered him to stop, he ed on foot, westbound on Smith Street. During the foot chase Hamm entered a resi dence occupied by a fe male and her children, uninvited, in an effort to elude capture. He exited through another door and escaped temporarily. At that time the K-9 Tracking Team from Jackson Correctional In stitution in Malone was returning from assisting Seminole County, Ga., with an escaped prison er. They responded and assisted the Sheriffs Ofce in locating the suspect. As the ofcers ap proached Hamm again, he ed into a residence and attempted to hide in a closet. He was tak en into custody without incident. The investigation re vealed that Hamm became angry at a female at a resi dence on Smith Street and kicked her vehicle. When she exited her car to con front him, Hamm armed himself with a hammer and busted the bedroom door. Once inside Hamm threw the female around the bedroom. When he exited the res idence he was confronted by the ofcer and the chase ensued. Due to the fact that Hamm was ee ing to avoid capture when he entered the females residence, he was charged with burglary of an oc cupied structure while in ights. He also was charged with battery, criminal mis chief and resisting an of cer without violence. He was lodged in the Jack son County Correctional Facility to await rst appearance.

OPINION www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, August 27, 2014 A Page 4 Section Its all right to admit you just dont know Eric Burdon and The Animals recorded a song in 1968 called No Self Pity, which dispenses the knowledge ... No matter how dumb you are, there is always somebody dumber ... And no matter how fast you are, there is always somebody faster. Of course, theres more to the lyrics than that, but you get the gist. These words became an ear worm of sorts recently, as a friend attempted to explain what needed to be done to repair his wifes car. Details of what he actually said are still sketchy, but what I heard went a little something like this: First, we need to re-calibrate the do-hickey, said Dave, my mechanic friend. Then, we need to use a ugenheimer to re-align the thing-a-ma-jig. Not wanting to admit my ignorance, I nodded, staring blankly. After all, who wants to admit they have no idea what a ugenheimer actually does? Of course, its not my friends fault I lack the testosterone-driven inclination to become uent in mechanicspeak. But I do wish hed keep my limited knowledge of automotive repair in mind when explaining things. Perhaps, something along the lines of: One of the parts that makes the car go vroom is broken. Ill do some stuff to it and make it go again. My children also like to remind me they are far smarter than I. Between my oldest childs attempt to explain the complex conjugate root theorem and even more baf ing, my youngest childs attempt to explain the various characters of the video game world its obvious I lack the true skills and knowledge vital to adulthood. Mom! said 10-year-old Aidan in frustration as I attempted to play a modern version of the old Nintendo Mario game, You have to get the super mushrooms to get super speed. Gosh! Of course, I should take my own conversational advice. I dont ponti cate on the use of the Helvetica bold font versus Helvetica oblique in everyday communication, mind you, but I do tend to rattle on, assuming everyone knows what Im talking about. This proved true most recently while trying to make conversation with the acquaintance of a family member who tagged along for a visit at my house. Noticing my outdoor cats, she commented on their coloring, which led to a discussion of their age, habits and other cat-related trivia, including the tale of my long-lost (but favorite) feline pet, a large male whose namesake was my favorite author. I miss Ernie, I told my guest. He was named after Ernest Hemingway. Whos that? she asked. Properly incensed on Hemingways behalf, I couldnt keep myself from expressing shock that she didnt at least know he was a writer, even if she had never read his work. Really? I asked. You dont know who he is? No, she replied idly, swirling her cup. I dont know many people from Chipley. Choking on a mouthful of Dr. Pepper, I excused myself, taking a moment to tamp down the urge to laugh with the reminder that while my guests literary knowledge was limited, she did at least have the courage to admit it. Meanwhile, a few miles away, Dave was going about his daily business, blissfully under the illusion his female friends not only understood the purpose of a ugenheimer, but also how to work this essential tool for the purpose of auto repair. Later that night, after my guests were gone and the childrens superior brains were fast asleep, I gave my friend a call: Dave? I asked. Hey, what is it? I have no idea what a ugenheimer does. Perplexed, he chose his next words carefully: I honestly have no idea what youre talking about. I know, I said, smiling before hanging up. And its all right to admit that.

Weve seen predominantly AfricanAmerican communities caught up in such turmoil before. Weve seen the peoples buildings, stores, places of employment and reputation wrecked for decades Watts in 1965 and Newark in 1967. In both cases, demonstrations set off by longsimmering grievances attracted violence and those who feasted on it. Whats different this time is the role of social media in changing both how the story is told and the story itself. Twitter has made a bad situation worse letting loose an indifferent mix of truth, lies, manipulation, good intentions and evil ones. There are those who disagree. Media critic David Carr hailed the explosion of Twitter traf c early in the con agration as a golden age of citizen journalism. Whereas CNN was focusing on the death of Lauren Bacall and U.S. action in northern Iraq, he wrote, Twitter feeds were showing where the real news was. In a situation hostile to traditional reporting, Carr added, the crowdsourced, phone-enabled network of information that Twitter provides has proved invaluable. Two problems with crowdsourcing. One is the source. Tweeters dont have to identify themselves. Thus, the information might well be the fantasy of an online adolescent in Copenhagen. In ammatory tweets might come from real Ferguson residents expressing their rage or from white racists attempting to discredit the formers cause. The other problem is the crowd as in whether there really is a crowd. Twitter lets users set up multiple accounts. Nowadays, vendors sell fake Twitter accounts by the truckload to businesses and celebrities, enabling them to claim a massive following. Tech writer Nick Bilton said he recently bought 4,000 new followers on Twitter for $5. Another $5 got him 4,000 friends on Facebook. Retweets. Likes. Favorites. Comments. Upvotes. Page views. You name it; theyre for sale, Bilton wrote. Many of these friends and followers are nothing more than lines of code. Skilled corporate marketers use social media to invent fads out of nothing. In a famously successful campaign, Verizon made a stir with questions unrelated to its product, questions such as Will you help me nd my mom? Political consultants, activists, journalists and pranksters all have access to the same bag of social media tricks. They know how to make a topic pop on Twitter. Consider this rather revealing quote in The Washington Post by Mary Pat Hector, an organizer for Al Sharptons national action network: People have been tweeting, We are ready to die tonight. It is a trending topic. If I were a reporter in Ferguson, Id be following the Ferguson hashtag on Twitter to get some ideas on where to look. Carr is right that in a chaotic situation covering several square miles, one guy with a notebook misses a lot. But that haystack of words is no substitute for anything resembling a reliable account of whats going on. The illusion of there being a crowd can itself summon crowd. Vying for attention amid the calls for peaceful marches in Ferguson were gleeful invitations to torch the town. Citizen journalism is not always good for the citizens. In pre-Twitter days, old-fashioned TV cameras were known to draw throngs of performers. Now Twitter draws the mobs that draw the TV cameras, which generate even larger numbers. One feels for the benighted people of Ferguson, whose city has become a stage for all kinds of online performances. Lets hope that when the show moves on, they will have something to rebuild.

Call 638-0212. Call me weird but I never really thought that I had to get away to have an adventure. Dont get me wrong, I love visiting new places, but theres still so much I havent done around home that Ive been meaning to explore, experience and expand on. I recently thought about it when I had spotted a peanut stand on the side of the road called Hot Nuts. I thought the stand would make a neat photo, and I loved peanuts, so I stopped and met the business owners, a husband and wife who persuaded me to buy a bag. As I sampled the perfectly salted nuts, I was inspired to explore more of Bonifay, just drive around to see what I could see. I rode down streets Ive never been down and seen houses and yards that were so different and unique. They made me think about who might be living there and what they must be like. It made me really think about all the things I had been meaning to do just around here that Ive never really got around to doing. Did you know theres a double-decker bus in Vernon that serves as a pizzeria? It has a huge chandelier in it, and you can dine in it. Ive passed it by many times at night, and its like a dream; its so beautiful. Ive never been there. Ive been meaning to. Im glad I got a chance to visit the French Quarter, or at least I think thats what it was called. It was in Vernon and had the best muffaletta and reuben sandwiches Ive eaten. I guess I had just taken it for granted that it would always be there. Ive done the same thing with many other things, heck, I still do. I think the worst Im guilty of is taking advantage of people always being there. I keep putting off visiting with people. Time and time again life has shown me that theres no guarantee for tomorrow. Buildings crumble and people come and go. Its just taking the time to live in that moment where time just doesnt matter. I do better when I just decided to up and go. It may be just to visit a new restaurant but to me its like acting with reckless abandon. Theres almost a guilty pleasure at visiting a new place, seeing new things and just abandoning duty for a few moments. More often than not, thats when I usually enjoy desert the most. Thats usually when Ill hum along to a song or tap my feet or grin like a Cheshire cat for no reason than my own devious glee. I might visit the old train station in Chipley or down to one of the many creek side parks in Holmes County. I may even purchase a snack to take with me, like an ice cream cone. I would stroll through those areas, taking my time and imagine that all is right with the world. A lot of these areas are maintained by local organizations that dont usually get recognized, like our city and county municipalities or our local garden and womens clubs. So many beautiful plants and xtures to make someone feel at home. I guess thats why I love it here so much. Theres a pride in everything thats put into our surroundings and theres a standard of ethics that do it regardless of thanks. I have heard on countless occasions that the reasoning is just because they care. They care about where they live, so they want to make it look nice. They care about the people who live there, so they want to brighten the mood. They care about sharing with visitors their love and pride of community that is so much like family. Im really wanting to focus on some of these organizations and clubs in my upcoming columns. I really want to get to the root of their organizations and show everyone what theyre trying to do for their friends, family and community. It seems like most every organization and business has something they do above and beyond what their business usually provides. Some have already approached me with some wonderful ideas about local non-pro t originations to write about. If you know of an organization or club that is bene cial and doesnt seem to be getting the recognition it deserves dont hesitate to email me at cspears@chipleypaper. com. Im also interested in nding out about interesting people, even if it is about a unique hobby, experience or talent. Thanks again for taking the time to sit with me, until next week, take care.

Beltone Among Adults over 50. 2014 Beltone Experience Beltone First, revolutionar y Made for iPhone hearing aid: *Remembers places you visit, and automa tically updates your settings TALLAHASSEE (AP) A Florida judge on Friday gave a victory to the states Republican-controlled Leg islature, rendering a deci sion that effectively forces voters to choose candidates in November based on a congressional map that he ruled was invalid because it favored the GOP. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis approved a new con gressional map that been swiftly adopted earlier this month during a special ses sion. But he agreed with at torneys for the Legislature that there was no time to implement the new map before voters head to the polls this year. Floridas primary is Tuesday. David King, an attorney for the groups that sued the Legislature over the dis trict boundaries, said they were disappointed with the decision and planned to ap peal the ruling. The groups had been heartened by the judges July ruling invali dating the 2012 map, but said the redrawn map of fered little more than cos metic changes and still was unconstitutional. They had hoped the judge would ei ther adopt a map proposed by them or draw up one on his own. Voters in 2010 passed the Fair Districts amend ment that says legislators cannot draw up districts to favor incumbents or a polit ical party, a practice known as gerrymandering. The League of Women Voters of Florida and other groups that sued contended GOP consultants used a shad ow process in 2012 to draw districts that beneted Re publicans and violated the new standards. Lewis agreed there was enough evidence to show consultants helped manip ulate the process and ruled that two districts were invalid. The two districts agged by Lewis were a sprawling district held by Democratic U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown and a Cen tral Florida district held by U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, a Republican. Legislators this month adopted a new map that alters seven of the states existing 27 districts and shifts nearly 400,000 vot ers in Central and North Florida. But the new map keeps intact to a large degree Browns district, which stretches from Jack sonville to Orlando and at one point is no wider than a highway bridge. The map is not expected to make any signicant changes to the makeup of Flori das congressional del egation, which is split be tween 17 Republicans and 10 Democrats. Lewis conceded the changes might not be per fect, but he said lawmakers did enough to cure prob lems he had found with the existing district. The Legislature is not required, however, to pro duce a map that the plain tiffs, or I, or anyone else might prefer, Lewis wrote in his four-page ruling. The Legislature is only required to produce a map that meets the require ments of the Constitution. My duty is not to select the best plan, but rather to decide whether the one ad opted by the Legislature is valid. House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, said he was pleased with Lewis speedy, thoughtful and conscien tious decision. You know, sometimes life affords you second chances; I am glad we got it right on the second round, Weatherford said. When he ordered a new map, Lewis had left open the possibility that he could order a special election to implement it. But state and local election ofcials protested the idea, saying there was no practical way to hold special elections in the affected districts. They instead told Lewis that a new election could not be held until March and May of next year. Lewis said in his ruling that holding elections in 2015 was not a viable option. He said the coalition did not pres ent any evidence to show if a special election could be held this year. Brown, who had been sharply critical of the ef fort to change her district, praised the judge for re taining the old congres sional boundaries for this years election. Making a last-minute change to the 2014 maps would have not only been a logistical nightmare, but entirely unfair to the tens of thousands ... who already cast a ballot either through early voting or through ab sentee/overseas ballot, Brown said.

Hall and Faulk ran roughshod for Cottondale over North Bay Haven and Robert F. Munroe in a pair of victories in a three-team football jamboree Thursday night. The host Hornets defeated Munroe 18-6 and North Bay Haven thumped Munroe 28-6. Cottondale then shut out NBH 16-0 in the nightcap. COTTONDALE 18, MUNROE 6 Faulk powered the Hornets in the opening half of the jamboree. He reeled off a 48-yard run to open the scoring, and his 47-yard run set up Halls 3-yard touchdown plunge to give Cottondale a 12-0 lead. Munroe quarterback Will Harris connected with receiver Cole Skipper for a 30-yard touchdown to cut Cottondales lead to 12-6, but the Hornets sealed their advantage in the two-quarter showdown when Manny Lockhart took a pass from quarterback Justin Lipford 77 yards for the matchups nal touchdown. We have probably 12-15 guys who have never played before, rst-year Cottondale coach Tyler Addison said. Weve got to get a little more experience. Weve got to be mentally tough and ght through adversity. The Hornets are trying to successfully follow their most proli c season in school history when they reached the Class 1A state semi nals in 2013. NORTH BAY HAVEN 28, MUNROE 6 The Buccaneers scored two touchdowns in a 20second span in the second quarter to spur their victory. NBHs Braiden Hardesty raced 35 yards on an endaround for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead with 3:45 left in the rst quarter. The Buccaneers recovered a fumble on the next play from scrimmage, and they capitalized with Steven Robersons 27-yard TD run for a 14-point lead with 3:25 left in the quarter. Munroe scored its lone TD with six minutes left in the second quarter, but Roberson put the game out of reach with a 62-yard burst for a 21-6 margin with 5:25 left. NBH quarterback Michael Cowart added an 18yard touchdown scamper to provide the nal margin. We wanted a good look at the offensive line up front, and I thought they did a great job, Bucs coach Jared Hale said. Cottondale 16, North Bay Haven 0 Cottondale marched down eld on its opening drive and nished with Halls 4-yard TD run less than 2 minutes into the showdown. Faulks twopoint conversion gave the Hornets an 8-0 edge. The Buccaneers thwarted Cottondale with a goal-line stand with 11:46 left in the second quarter, but the Hornets returned the favor on the ensuing drive by forcing a turnover on downs in Cottondale territory with 5 minutes remaining. Marcus Johnson punched the ball into the end zone for Cottondale with 2:55 left, and Hall scored on a two-point conversion. North Bay Haven opens its second year of varsity football when it hosts Rocky Bayou Christian School next week in its regularseason opener at Pete Edwards Field. Cottondale opens at home against Freeport. CATHRINE LAMB | The News Cottondales Austin Livingston (51) moves in for the tackle with Emmanuel Lockhart (6) in pursuit Thursday night in the rst half of a high school football jamboree hosted by Cottondale. CATHRINE LAMB | The News Corey Myers (71), Matt Giese (55) and Cade Meeks (40) of North Bay Haven converge to stop a R.F. Munroe ball carrier on Thursday night in Cottondale. Graceville Tigers take down HCHS Blue Devils 40-28 Special to The News BONIFAY Holmes County head football coach Brad Johnson saw that his younger players got some experience by playing his junior varsity team in the rst quarter of the kickoff classic against the Graceville Tigers on Friday night. That partially explained why Graceville jumped to a large rsthalf lead en route to a 40-28 victory. We have a bright future with our JV players, Johnson said. They went up against the varsity and held their own. The Tigers opened a 27-0 lead before Holmes Countys Chad Leavins scored the rst touchdown for the Blue Devils with 4:17 left in the second quarter. It was followed by another TD by Justice Bice. Holmes County also got a touchdown from Leavins on a 75-yard run. A fumble on the snap on the extra point turned into Cole Marells pass to Trenton Bowers for a twopoint conversion. We were expecting big things out of Leavins this year, and we hope we can keep getting on his back and get him to help carry us, Johnson said. We have three returning senior starters, and we rely on that experience. We have a lot to work on. Sophomore quarterback Shane Sellers threw a touchdown pass to Marell to complete Holmes Countys scoring Liberty County 39, Chipley 7 Special to The News BRISTOL Liberty County carried a 12-point lead into the locker room at halftime and pulled away in the second half for the preseason win. Chipley scored on its opening drive of the second half to pull within 12-7, but the host Bulldogs scored touchdowns on consecutive possessions late in the third quarter to put the game out of reach with a 25-7 advantage. Liberty County plays at Tallahassee Maclay Friday. Chipley hosts Vernon. Port St. Joe 20, Blountstown 19 Special to The News PORT ST. JOE Port St. Joe grinded out a narrow victory over Blountstown in its kickoff classic with a successful goal-line stand inside the Tiger Sharks 2-yard line in the games nal seconds. Blountstown faced a rst-and-goal at the PSJ 2, but the host Tiger Sharks came up with four stops defensively to preserve the win. PSJ led 20-2 at halftime after the two teams competed with their varsity rosters for two quarters. The teams used second-stringers in the third quarter and JV players in the nal quarter.

Last weeks prattle alluded to more August birthdays in the article for this week. In order to meet the publishing deadline for the Washington County News, some of the birthday people have celebrated their special day before the paper was printed. At the Aug. 9 Southern Gospel Sing, presented by the Spanish Trail Playhouse, Master of Ceremonies, Kirk Thompson, opened the program by introducing a lady present in the auditorium who was celebrating her 96th birthday by attending this program on the day before turning 96 on Sunday, Aug. 10. The special guest was Bess Yates Harrell, who accompanied her daughter, Barbara Jean Teusink and husband, John, to the night of gospel singing. The spotlight was ashed in the area of her seating as she received a roaring round of applause. Your writer, who regards this lady as a special friend and faithful reader of Perrys Prattle since its inception, visited with her a short time during the intermission. My friend, Ralph Odell Ward, suggested a few months ago that some outstanding story or history recorded in the Heritage of Washington County Book should be featured at least once each month. Should I ever get around to doing that, the writing on Bess Yates Harrell and husband, Thomas Ray Harrell, would be a good one to start on. For now, readers will nd their classic story on pages 231 and 232 of this catalog of history which is still available at both the Vernon Historical Society Museum and the Washington County Historical Museum. The books are still proving to be excellent sellers and when this supply is gone, it is highly doubtful that another printing will ever be forthcoming. My Aug. 24 birthday has been bringing a ood of cards and telephone calls all week long. A very special person, Mary Alice Hiley Koru Remington, an ardent reader and supporter of the heritage book project, has sent her coveted card from her Flat Rock, N. C. home with this heart warming personal note added to the beautiful poetic card: Perry, you are one of Gods special people. This lady, with a most interesting history of a life devoted to the educational profession, will turn 100 years old on Feb. 4, 2015. The day following receipt of her message, my former University of Florida roommate, Sammie Ray Young, a Clewiston native, now living in Silver Spring, Maryland sent his old roomie a highly appropriate birthday letter, in which he also complimented my continued weekly prattle column with this comment: I continue to be amazed at the detail you come up with on the people there in your area after all these years. On this same date, telephone calls came from my U. of F. friend, Jeral J. Smithgall, a Ponce De Leon native, now living in Mobile, Ala. His statements echo that of Sam Young, while urging me to keep on writing as long as I feel impressed to do, then adding: You will be the rst to know when its time to quit! Randall Roberts, a Bonifay native, now residing in Valparaiso, also a friend from our college days, continues to wonder how the history of so many remain in my memory, which allows for the weekly writing. Two double rst cousins, Ralph E. Harris and his younger brother, Howard A. Harris have August birthdays. Howard was born Aug. 19, 1942 and Ralph has my birthday, Aug. 24, 1938. I talked to their oldest brother, Kenneth Harris, on the day of the surge of calls and mail, and was able to relate to him that I was out in the eld on the family farm on my 11th birthday, picking off green peanuts for boiling, when the word came of Ralphs birth. It has always been easy to remember that I am 11 years older than him. In the kinsmen connection, Hannah Ruth Hinson White, enjoys an Aug. 21 birthday, with cousin William Karl (Bill) Wells claiming Aug. 28 as his date of birth. Annie Myrel Collins Frame was born to V. J. Collins and Lotee Merrett Collins Aug. 24, 1935. Hesters parents, Herbert and Pauline Lucas, had four grandchildren, all with August birthdays. Byron Maurice White, who died ve years ago, had an Aug. 15 arrival date. His sister, Tammie, came along a few years later on Aug. 21. The other brother and sister grands are Scott Lucas and Shelia Lucas, both with an Aug. 28 birthday. Scotts wife, Donna, missed the date by only one day, with an Aug. 29 special day. Of our eight grandchildren, only Lucas McLean (Mac) Wells was born in August that being on Aug. 28. Sister, Muriel Wells Turners youngest daughter, Meredith, was born on Aug. 16, with Max and Joyce Wells youngest child, Carla Ann, enjoying the same date. In the younger set, the twin daughters of Henry Stone of Stones Chipley Packing, Kristen and Katherine, always seemed pleased that they had my birthday, Aug. 24. These two young ladies are grown and producing members of society with jobs in Bay County. Your writer has overlooked too long the two sincere compliments on Perrys Prattle in recent weeks. The Rev. L. V. Farmer originally teamed up with Coach A. A. Robinson and the Rev. Jerome Ramsey to form the Sunday Morning Spiritual Broadcast on WBGC-Radio in the infancy of the stations history. The Rev. Farmer recently had kind comments on the efforts of reporting historical events, including the local radio stations heritage in the county. Marvis Jett was the second person to voice glowing comments on the Prattle, after reading the article on William T. (Bill) McFatter, stating that she was one of many who had fond memories of Mr. McFatter presenting her diploma as a graduate of Chipley High School. See you all next week surely with a different topic other than August birthdays. August birthday still dominates Prattle Shadows caught PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells S PECIAL T O THE NEWS In the Aug. 20 Chasing Shadows feature, we asked local residents to identify the members of this Chipley High School TV Productions crew.

Extra Washington County News | B3 Wednesday, August 27, 2014 Special to Extra Motorists preparing for a Labor Day road trip will likely see the cheapest gas prices for the holiday since 2010. Oil and gasoline prices slipped again in the past week, and that decline is likely to continue into the holiday weekend. Record high oil production is keeping downward pressure on gas prices, said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman. The bottom fell out again on oil prices last week, which should lead to another week of discounts at the pump despite rising demand, as 29.7 million Americans plan to take a road trip for Labor Day weekend. The price for a barrel of WTI oil settled at $93.65 on Friday, $3.70 cheaper than the week before, and the cheapest since January. Reneries are producing the most petroleum for this time of year since 1989, primarily due to the shale boom, which has boosted oil production in the U.S. by 64 percent in the past ve years. The current national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.44, 15 cents cheaper than on Labor Day 2013. The average prices in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee are cheaper than last years Labor Day by 22 cents, 21 cents, and 18 cents respectively. Crossword PUZZLE SOLUTION ON PAGE B5 Special to Extra Though our pets might dread the veterinarian, there are many instances when a trip to the local animal hospital or clinic is essential to their health. Because Fido cant express to you in words when he isnt feeling himself, there are many symptoms you can look out for to help determine if its time for a vet visit. It is most important to remember that everything should be taken within the context of the other signs, said Dr. Jean Rubanick, veterinary resident instructor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Basically, if there are multiple signs, then taking a pet to the vet is indicated. Some common signs of irregularity include extreme lethargy, increased respiratory rate, profuse vomiting or diarrhea, anorexia, or increased drinking and urinating. These are most widely recognized as indicators for veterinary attention, but some symptoms may be more unique and less recognizable. Abnormal circling (not to be confused with the occasional circling of an excited dog), head pressing, seizures, inability to rise, weakness, respiratory distress, changes in the gum color and bubbles coming from the nose are some other sign to look out for, Rubanick said. If your pet ingests something toxic to animals, whether it is a plant or food, consultation with your veterinarian is vital to the animals health and safety. Eating sago palm, chocolate, lilies, people medication or anything else unusual should also prompt a call to the veterinarian, Rubanick said. Although stomach abnormalities such as vomiting and diarrhea may be signs of sickness or ingestion of toxins, it is also possible Fido merely scarfed down his dinner too quickly. Depending on the pet and its usual behavior, a brief upset stomach may not be much cause for concern. Vomiting once or one bout of diarrhea is probably nothing to worry about, as long as the pet is otherwise acting normally, Rubanick said. Likewise, a pet that eats too quickly or drinks a lot of water and then vomits but continues to act normally afterwards is probably ne. In general, you should always contact your veterinarian if you notice any symptoms or behavior abnormal for Fido. From there, your vet will be able tell you if something does not need to be urgently addressed or if you should make an appointment right away. Whether Fido is just having an off day or he ingested something poisonous, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Already, the publics willingness to report where they see panthers and black bears in Florida is having a positive impact on what is known about where these large mammals live and reproduce in the state. Based on two years of online public reporting of panther sightings and almost one year of online reports of bear sightings, biologists know more about what areas of Florida provide viable habitat for these species. A total of 1,537 Florida panther sightings have been reported as of June 2014, of which 275 have been veried as panthers based on photos of the animal or its footprints. This includes the rst verication of a panther sighted near the Green Swamp north of Interstate 4 in central Florida. Primarily, the veried panther sightings are in southwest Florida. There also were 2,257 Florida black bear sighting reports as of June 2014, with more than 500 of those reports containing uploaded photographs. Sightings of bears were reported in 59 of the states 67 counties. The FWC continues collection of panther sightings at MyFWC. com/PantherSightings, and bear sightings at MyFWC.com/ BearSightings. Here people can nd information about the animals, including how to identify them, what to do or not do if they see one and a Google map making it easy to pinpoint the sighting location. Someones excitement about seeing a Florida panther or black bear may translate into important scientic information if that sighting is reported to the FWC, said Carol Knox, the FWCs Imperiled Species Management section leader. The FWC is pleased that so many people are making the effort to be citizen scientists and sharing their sightings of panthers and bears. By doing so, they are contributing to conservation of Floridas largest land mammals. Soon, cooler weather will be on the way, and more people will be resuming their outdoor pursuits. We hope people going outdoors to hunt, hike or pursue other recreational activities remember to share their bear sightings with us, particularly if it is a mother bear with cubs, said FWC bear biologist Brian Scheick. For a list of the many FWC wildlife sightings, surveys and hotlines in which citizen scientists are invited to participate, go to MyFWC. com/get-involved/citizen-science/. Learn more about panthers at FloridaPantherNet.org and more about bears at MyFWC.com/Bear. Special to Extra Almost 300 sea turtle eggs were returned to the beach and reburied Friday after the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission caught a man poaching them from a beach in St. Lucie County. James Odel McGriff, 55, of Riviera Beach, was arrested and booked into the St. Lucie County jail. We take these matters very seriously, said Capt. Jeff Ardelean, a supervisor in the FWCs West Palm Beach ofce. Stopping those who attempt to poach and commercialize our endangered species is one of our highest priorities. Friday night, a concerned citizen called the FWC after she saw what looked like a man stealing sea turtle eggs at the Diamond Sands beach off A1A. She was able to provide a description of the man and his vehicle. FWC ofcers and investigators responded and talked with the man. After using a K-9 to track where he had been, they located a disturbed sea turtle nest and a backpack full of sea turtle eggs. This was not the rst time McGriff had been caught for poaching turtle eggs. In 2002, he was arrested after selling 12 eggs to an undercover ofcer and possessing 27 dozen pre-bagged eggs for sale. We are committed to stopping those who intentionally take advantage of our states sh and wildlife resources, Ardelean said. The FWC is working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on this case, and federal charges are pending. Sea turtles are among the oldest creatures on earth. All ve species in Florida are either endangered or threatened. The Marine Turtle Protection Act stipulates that it is illegal to injure, harm, harass, capture or attempt to capture any marine turtles, eggs or nests. If you know of or suspect any violations, call FWCs Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922 or text Tip@MyFWC.com.

The Parcel number, Certificate number and year of issuance, the description of the property, and the names in which it was assessed are as follows: Certificate Number 0770 Year of Issuance 2012 Parcel 00-3156-0003 Assessed to: David G. Richardson, Description of Property: The S of the S of the SE of the NW and that part of the S of the S of the SW of the NE lying West of The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly nally exercised our right to a vacation and planned for a whole week to spend with our son and his family. Preparing for a week vacation takes about six weeks prior to the vacation and then six weeks after the vacation to get caught up. I do not know how people take vacations all the time. It was to be a great week of relaxing and spending time with our son and his family in the state of Ohio. Ohio is remarkable for a lot of things but when my wife and I think of Ohio we think of one thing: our grandchildren. Someone once remarked that grandchildren were Gods way of apologizing for our children. Maybe that is so, I do not know. If so, I gladly accept His apology. All I know is it is wonderful to spend time with grandchildren. The important thing about being a grandparent is discovering the skills necessary to adequately spoil your grandchildren within a weeks time frame. Secretly, my plan is to get back at my children for their childhood in my home by spoiling my grandchildren in their home. Revenge is sweet and wonderful. It was about the middle of the week and my wife and I were sitting outside enjoying the cool weather. All of the grandchildren had been snuggled down into their beds for the night. It certainly is tiring to spend the day with grandchildren who have no shortage of energy and whose tongue is a well oiled machine and does not know how to be quiet. Our ears were still tingling from the days childish verbiage extravaganza. We were sitting in the backyard sipping some hot coffee, enjoying the quiet evening when I heard this buzzing sound on the left side of my head. Automatically my hand swatted in that area and I went on drinking my coffee as though nothing had happened. I thought perhaps the kids were still up or maybe it was a ashback from the afternoon. My wife looked at me as though something weird happened, but we continued enjoying the evening atmosphere with only the soothing sounds of sipping coffee. Then I heard the buzzing sound again. This time it was on the other side of my head and as I swatted I began to realize what was happening. All of the bugs in the state of Ohio had received a memo that I was vacationing in the state. In well organized shifts they began the welcoming process. Within a short time I was swatting bugs with both hands which did not seem to change the situation at hand. I know I am a sweet person, but this was becoming ridiculous. I would like to retain my sweetness for something other than bugs. I am not quite sure how many bug bites I received that night, I stopped counting at 2,973,442 bites. I am not quite certain, but it was feeling more like it had exceeded 3 million bites. If I had a penny for every bug bite I would buy some very expensive bug repellent. It seemed like they were working in shifts and it got to the point where my mind shifted into a murder scenario. Is it a crime to murder a bug who has bitten me so many times? Of course the real question is, is it really murder? Could it be considered a mercy killing? And if it is murder, what is the penalty for murdering a bug? I was at the point that I would gladly have paid handsomely for the privilege of putting some bugs to rest. As a spiritually minded person, I wondered if bugs go to heaven when they die. If they go to heaven, do they continue to bite? And, would it be proper for an angel to swat a bug in heaven? The mood I was in, after being bitten so many times by these lousy bugs, I had an opposite destination in mind. Since they like re so much and are attracted to it, I would be glad to accommodate them. I know a place that would t the situation quite well. After two hours of ghting these stinking bugs, my sanity, as fragile as it is, was on the brink of collapsing. Once my sanity collapses I am not responsible for what I will do or say. It was hard to nd a place on my body one nger wide where a bug had not tasted the delicacy of my sweet skin. One question I reected on was simply, what did the bugs do before I arrived? Did they save up all their energy for when I would come and visit? This is not the kind of celebrity status I am seeking. My preference is to be anonymous to all the bugs in Ohio. All of these insects, whatever they were, were simply bugging me to death. When I regained some composure, I thought about what it must have been like for Jesus to come into this world. The writer of Hebrews puts it this way, So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation (Hebrews 9:28). So many things in this world bug me, but I have something greater to look forward to, a place called heaven. The Rev. James L.

No other feeling on earth rivals watching our Support for the home team is just local tradition Chipley Tigers, Ver non Yellow Jackets and Holmes County Blue Dev ils in action. Its all-con suming, knowing legends Theres emotion and excitement so intense, watching one of our boys run the ball into the end zone for a touchdown has been known to being grown men to tears. But its not just about winning. Sure, theres been a sense of excitement as our coaches make it a community-wide mission to have more winning seasons, but supporting the home team is a local tradi tion, whether the season be one for the record books or one wed rather forget. Our football stadiums for mini class reunions. year intervals to relive the glory days of their former grid iron gang? Physiques may have softened, and the hair has grayed, but the roar of the crowd and excitement of the game does not fade as easily. No doubt, Friday nights in the fall provide a rare opportunity for the com munity to truly feel like an extended family. There, we cheer to gether, groan together and grow together. See you on the side lines.

Friday, August 22, 2014 | The News Herald | Page 23 CHIPLEY TIGERS By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com CHIPLEY Seven wins were good enough for a winning record at Chipley last year, but they werent enough to qualify for the playoffs. The Tigers must successfully replace starters at 16 positions on both sides of the ball if they are going to contend for one of District 3-1As two postseason berths this season. Its about finishing and con sistency, Chipley coach Chip Harris said. We were a good football team last year, and weve graduated a dozen seniors. They were pretty good ones. Were kind of reloading, especially up front. The Tigers return three starters on offense and three on defense. Harris said many of his players taking on expanded roles did get valuable playing time last year. Weve got some guys who are going to be starting for the first time who are a little bit older and didnt start but played some, Harris said. I wonder how theyll react to being a starter, going from 20 snaps and now its 60 or 70 snaps. We really dont get that stuff answered until we get into a dogfight and it all comes to life. Harris said his offense will contain a little I (formation) and a little spread. Senior Carlon Smith, junior Zack Campbell and sophomore Adrian Sims will be featured as playmakers. Harris said Campbell and Smith also will line up defensively as cornerbacks, and Marcus Swint (linebacker), Caleb Carter (defensive end) and Wyatt Brock (defensive tackle) are seniors who are being promoted to the starting 11. In small, rural ball, youve got a lot of guys playing both ways, Harris said, adding that the Tigers could carry as many as 28 players on the varsity roster. You have to depend on some young kids to give you some play, get the other guys a break and just try to hold on. Harris believes if his team plays up to its potential, a reward ing season will follow. He said team goals include winning the district title and advancing to the playoffs.

Page 32 | The News Herald | Friday, August 22, 2014 COTTONDALE HORNETS By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com COTTONDALE Cottondale achieved new heights last sea son and endured the high school equivalent of a professional fran chise fire sale The Hornets saw much turnover from the 8-5 squad that advanced to the state semifinal for the first time. The changes started at the top, when long time coach Mike Melvin stepped down. His former assistant, Tyler Addison, has taken over the pro gram and he will start fresh. Fourteen seniors departed, including top rusher Norris Calhoun, who carried the Hornets through three rounds of the Class 1A postseason. His 1,600plus yards delivered a memora ble run that ended against state runner-up Blountstown. Cottondale must rebuild along both the offensive and defensive lines after losing multiple senior starters. It will be crucial to find cohesion to help new starters DeMichael Faulk, a power back, and JaVontai Hall, the faster of the two, replace Calhouns pro duction. The duo combined for more than 1,200 yards last sea son and will have to take a step forward if Cottondale is to come close to repeating its success. That also will depend on how well yet another starting quarter back fits into the lineup. Junior Justin Lipford steps in as the third starting quarterback in as many years at the Jackson County school. The Hornets were runnersup in District 2-1A in 2013 and the grouping is expected to be even more competitive this season. Sneads and Vernon are favored and Graceville could be improved. Cottondale and Graceville have perennially battled for position in respec tive districts and this season should be no different with a Halloween encounter deciding final placement. Cottondale faces Sneads and Vernon in the span of three weeks in September and Octo ber. Cottondale plays Sneads in its fourth game with nondistrict games against Freeport and West Gadsden to help prepare for the pivotal matchup. Cottondale split with Sneads and Vernon last season, defeat ing the Pirates by 10 points and falling to the Yellow Jackets by a touchdown in a turnover-laden game. Vernon went on to win the district, but Cottondale had the longer playoff run.

Friday, August 22, 2014 | The News Herald | Page 29 GRACEVILLE TIGERS By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com GRACEVILLE In Class 1A football, you ride your stars as far as theyll go. Thats the plan at Graceville, which has ground to make up in one of the deepest districts in the Rural classification. The Tigers won only one of four Dis trict 2-1A games in Ty Wises first season at the school, but they return their starting back field. Those skill players could decide if Graceville repeats a 4-6 year or improves. Wise is well schooled in the 1A division having spent time at Bratt Northview. If a team has enough firepower it can make a run, much like Cottondale did last season. If a team doesnt have much it can make for a long season. All of our returning play ers have the ability to make big plays, Wise said. You cant put a price on having guys that can ignite your offense and defense and make other guys play well around them. Those playmakers are Jared Padgett, who will be used in a variety of positions, Preston Nichols, who will play quarter back, Eddie Myrick and Jarrett Brogdon. The group also stocks a deep secondary and provides a stellar foursome expected to increase production. Three of the four are seniors and three defensive leaders also are 12th-graders. Thats an important part of Gracevilles potential resur gence. Wise, like other area 1A coaches, was new to the pro gram last season and had to battle the learning curve. Less clutter means the second year could be more fruitful. Wise noted improvement over the summer and he hopes players can get past the prob lem of fixating on mistakes. The absence of being able to look ahead and being bogged down by miscues costs the Tigers last season. They were competitive in most of the district games, los ing by a touchdown against Ver non and Sneads, the favorites this season. More solid perfor mances in the rematches could turn the tide. Those games come in a span of two weeks in October with a district finale against runner-up Cottondale on Halloween that will deter mine Gracevilles fate. Weve just got to play together and focus on the next play, Wise said. We dont need to allow the emotions of the game to dictate how we play. We constantly stress that our guys need to have amnesia and not dwell.CHASE JOWERSSenior linebacker PLAYERS TO WATCH JARRETT BROGDON Last season: 4-6 (1-3 District 2-1A) Head coach: Ty Wise, second year Returning starters: 6/52014 S CHEDU LE Aug. 22 at Holmes Co.

Page 28 | The News Herald | Friday, August 22, 2014 HOLMES COUNTY BLUE DEVILS By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com BONIFAY Holmes County football coach Brad Johnson knows what direction his pro gram is headed. Theres nowhere to go but up, Johnson said as his Blue Devils prepare to rebound from a winless season last year.Holmes County, which previ ously won district championships in 2011 and 2012 before enduring a rebuilding season one year ago, featured only four seniors on last years team, and Johnson said the rebuilding process began in the weight room during the offseason.Thats where its all got to start, he said. Were trying to get guys to buy into what were doing. We were real young last year, and were a little older this year. Were still pretty young as far as varsity experience, and were still trying to get guys to do what we want them to do it and how we want it done. Holmes County has six return ing starters on offense and seven on defense. Johnson said many of his players remain inexperienced, however, and three of the eight seniors on the Blue Devils roster are playing varsity football for the first time. Luckily we didnt really lose anybody off of last years team, Johnson said. The guys got good attitudes. They knew they were kind of outclassed last year, but theyve been working their butts off. Johnson said three seniors center Hunter Paterson, guard Blake Mancill and tackle Jesse Godwin return to start on the offensive line. That trio provides Johnson and his coaches with experienced players to build around. Thats what weve been talking about in practice, Johnson said. Theyre the nucleus, and weve got to be able to get behind those guys and run the football. Theyve got to be able to protect, too, and realize that it all starts with them. Junior defensive back Bishop Dean is one of four returning starters in the defensive secondary, and the Blue Devils return two starters at linebacker and one more on the defensive line. Staying level and staying the same is not what were looking for, Johnson said. We want to improve every week. The post season would be nice, but Im not focused on that. Were trying to get better every day and every week during the season. Weve got a long way to go.

Friday, August 22, 2014 | The News Herald | Page 25Perspective has expanded VERNON YELLOW JACKETS By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com VERNON A repeat of a dis trict championship wont be good enough at Vernon this season. That sentiment comes from Yellow Jackets coach Bobby Johns. They won the District 21A crown in his first season back in the Panhandle, but finished with an early playoff exit. High expectations have carried over to this season, with 17 starters returning from a 7-4 team. Our motto this year is unfinished business, Johns said. We had an opportunity to go as far as Vernon has ever gone before in the playoffs. We feel we left something on the table. We kind of shorted our selves last year. This year that (district title) isnt good enough. We need to move forward. Vernon will do so behind a new Spread, no-huddle offense. Its a departure for the runhappy Johns, but he saw the need for the change in the spring given the teams personnel. The offense will showcase Austin Brown, he of the many Division I offers at wide receiver. Johns will stick with his designs for a powerful team despite the fast-paced tempo. His past squads have been known for work in the weight room, includ ing those he was successful with at Blountstown. While Ver non may not pound the football under the command of quarter back Tristan Porter, Johns said a strength still lies on the line with two players weighing more than 300 pounds. Were ahead of the curve of a second-year team, Johns said. Were stronger than I anticipated. Vernon entered fall camp with 35 players. However, Johns said the roster is stocked with more players that can contribute at this level. He said thats more important to build an experi enced squad, which also features 13 freshmen.Johns said the Yellow Jackets are aware they are one of the favor ites in the district behind a defense that features twins Darrien and Darrius Peterson. He also admit ted the power of the Rural division resides in Region 2, with Blount stown, Port St. Joe and Liberty County. That said, he wants to create a winning atmosphere in Ver non, something the school hasnt had consistently in some time.We really had to piecemeal some things together last year, Johns said. Our biggest advan tage now is our kids understand more about whats expected. On paper, it looks as if it should be us and Sneads. But we had a ton of parity in our district last year and I still feel the same way. We got better as the year went on. Were excited for this season.
