The decision to ask Sheriff Haddock to take over Washington Countys 11 departments was made earlier this year, with County Attorney Jeff Goodman facilitating the move. Commissioner Todd Abbott said while he didnt doubt Sheriff Haddocks ability to run the department, he wasnt comfortable with the board of commissioners not having a say in the daily operations considering the county is ultimately responsible for providing re protection. State mandate says that we are responsible for providing re protection, and we have no jurisdiction or say over what the sheriff does, said Abbott. If Im going to be responsible for it, I want some say over it. Commissioner Lynn Gothard reiterated her previous concerns He left a legacy Dr. James Craven passes at 84 Staff Report CHIPLEY The community is mourning the loss of a doctor and medical community leader who treated at least four generations of local residents. Dr. James B. Craven, Sr. passed away Monday, Sept. 1, at his home after an extended illness. He was born April 19, 1930 in Chipley to the late William Milton Craven and Marion Miner Craven. He graduated from Chipley High School in 1948. During their younger years, he and his brother Billy Craven operated the family dairy farm south of Chipley. After serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean Con ict, he attended the University of Chattanooga and graduated from the University Of Miami School Of Medicine. Upon completing postgraduate training at The Medical Center in Columbus, Ga. He practiced medicine brie y in DeFuniak Springs, Florida. He then returned to Chipley where he practiced medicine for more than forty years. Dr. Craven was a great doctor and an even better person, said Amer Dastgir, a 1993 Chipley High School graduate who went on to become an orthopedic surgeon. I used to shadow him in high school and learned so much from him. He left a legacy Graveside services will be held at 10 a.m. today, Sept. 3, in Glenwood Cemetery in Chipley. WHTC considers name change By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT Cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Washington-Holmes Technical Center Director Martha Compton gave a presentation at the recent meeting of Bonifay Kiwanis Club announcing a possible name change is in the works for the school to Florida Panhandle Technical College. Many years ago, WashingtonHolmes Technical Center only served Washington and Holmes County, Compton said. But today, our enrollment has changed. We are serving from Escambia County all the way to Leon County. Weve got several students from down-state that are coming up that will spend eight weeks in our CDL program. Because of growth, Compton explained she has spending time in legislation involved with a movement of a bill to change the name and rebrand technical center. When I was in school in the s it was known as the Votech, she explained. Most of the people in my day didnt go to the Votech because it was a place to go when you didnt want or feel you needed to go to college. That has changed; we are no longer the Votech, so youll hear us say technical center. Thirty technical centers were favored by the House of Representatives for a title change from technical center to technical college in recent years. We got a little greedy, and we had some leaders in the technical centers that said we want to offer AAS degrees, Compton said. So you know whose toes we stepped on; we stepped on the colleges toes, and the colleges said oh no, this is our realm, so the Senate shut us down. A HEROS REUNION Vernon Yellow Jacket Quarterback Tristan Porter got quite the surprise before the ChipleyVernon game Friday night. Older brother Nick, a U.S. Marine and 2012 VHS graduate, drove all night from his current duty station so that he could watch Porter play in the rst regular game of the season. Upon seeing his older brother, the VHS Junior dropped his helmet and water bottle and went in for the hug.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 3, 2014 about the current opera tions of the re depart ments, stating that hiring a County Fire Coordinator would assist local chiefs is ensuring their departments are up to code. The re departments have come before this board every year to discuss what needs to be done, and noth ing has been done, said Gothard. The re depart ments deserve the same leadership as every other county department. The co ordinator could process or ders and track training and equipment standards. The board agreed to re scind the previous vote to hand re operations to the sheriff and hire look into hiring a coordinator. Salary will be congured using the county pay scale, with the rst year funded out of the $64,000 balance currently sitting untouched in the countys re ser vices account. The board stressed the salary will not be $64,000, rather just fund ed out of that account the rst year and possibly by a grant for the following year. In other action, the board also approved its consent agenda, which in cluded placing the Wash ington County Board of Educations half-cent sales tax on the November ballot as a referendum. 1360 BRICK YA RD RO AD I CHIPLE Y, FL 32428 I 8 50 638 1 610 I WWW .N FCH .O RG O er ed at No rt hw est Fl orida Co mmunit y Ho spital Sp ecialt y Ce nt er 1360 Br ic ky ar d Ro ad Chipl ey FL 3242 8 Fo r appoin tmen t call (850) 415-8185 Ne w ENT & Fa cial Plastics Be gi nnin g Se pt emb er 2, 2014 Daniel C.

Obamacare has been an issue in the closely watched race to represent Floridas 2nd District. Incumbent Rep. Steve Southerland, RPanama City, stood with local doctors last month to decry the law as one that is hurting patients and doctors. They said Grahams position on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) seemed to change with the prevailing winds, a charge Graham denied. Since the beginning of this race Ive taken the consistent position that we shouldve had an incremental approach to reforming health care, she said. There have been positives, she said. The law now prevents insurance companies from refusing coverage for pre-existing conditions, and it allows college-age dependents to remain covered by their parents health insurance. It prohibits insurers from charging women more for policies and increases access to preventive care. But the law also leaves much to be desired, Graham said. She said a recent visit to Campbellton-Graceville Hospital impressed on her the burden the law imposes on rural health care facilities with a mandate that medical records be kept electronically. The hospital spent millions to upgrade its records system, she said, which is ridiculous. Congress spent too much time in ghting and didnt make enough effort with the details in the law, Graham said. We needed to have a Congress that would have xed that so that our rural hospitals are not at a disadvantage, Graham said. Southerland and Graham actually overlap on some of these issues. For instance, Graham said she supported the Keep Your Health Plan Act, which Republicans put forward after people actually lost their health care coverage in the troublestricken rollout of the law, despite President Barack Obamas promise that you can keep it. Graham is opposed to the cuts in the law to Medicare Advantage, which has caused premium increases for policy holders. The ACA also includes a Medical Device Tax, which has been criticized on both sides of the aisle. Thats another area of the law that I would repeal, Graham said. Southerland has voted over and over to repeal the law, so why doesnt Graham support repealing the ACA? I dont really think theres much difference between repealing the law and the xes she supports, Graham said. Thats what Congress has normally done historically x laws.

Call 638-0212. OPINION www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, September 3, 2014 A Page 4 Section Adventures in parenthood Why is there a birthday candle in my purse? The bewildered question came from long-time friend, Katie Moore, last Friday. Laughing, I couldnt resist reminding Katie odd purse contents are a sure sign shes a mom. Whats in Moms Purse has become a favorite game among members of my household. The range of items found has changed with the ages of my children, of course. Pocketbooks have contained everything from extra diapers, loose Fruit Loops, toy cars, doll heads (dont ask), Band-aids and a Nerf dart (Honestly, that last one might belong to me.) Before having children, my purse was all about me, lled with nothing but a wallet, makeup and ticket stubs. Funny how parents adapt to their new role, often doing things that would send a younger version of themselves running. If youre considering parenthood, heres fair warning of whats to come: A quiet house will frighten you. Moms will go weeks without shaving their legs because we understand it can be dangerous to take the extra time needed in the shower while there are children playing in the next room. You will memorize millions of books, songs and worthless facts, which is the reason your brain wont have room to retain memory of where you placed your car keys. Sure, you cant stand the Adventure Time theme song, but you will know every word of it and nd yourself humming the offensive tune at work. Your mothers voice will come out of your mouth. In fact, you will do several things you swore youd never do as a parent and not even feel bad about it. You also will nd yourself uttering strange phrases like, Stop licking the hymnal or Who put bologna in the DVD player? You will catch something disgusting in your hand, and it wont faze you. During the past 19 years, Im embarrassed to admit I have wiped toddler noses with my bare hands and put my hand out to catch something those same toddlers needed to spit out. I once even saved a relatives area rug from a sick child in this manner. You will be able to identify weird substances and smells in a single sniff. The sticky red mess in the bottom of the toy box is probably old Halloween candy, and that sour smell in your car is likely a lost sippy cup rolling around under the seat. Go ahead and throw it away. Its worth the three bucks to buy another cup to avoid opening the lid. Trust me. Phantom-like people will move into your home. Named Ida Know and Not Me, these folks are visible only to children and usually are responsible for all misdeeds committed in the house. You will have to peel something off the ceiling at least once. This can range from spaghetti to a failed science experiment. You also will nd something strange clogging the drain, such as a Mr. Potato Head in the toilet (true story). For those thinking of joining the ranks of parenthood, the above facts might seem scary, as its not a job for the faint of heart. It will, however, prepare you for most everything you will ever have to face except that fateful day when you nd yourself having to let your little ones go and wishing you could do it all again.

We all need to get somewhere, either to pick up something you need or to deliver something you need. If you live in a house or drive any vehicle or eat food, somehow a truck driver helped get it to you. When we come through any town or city all we want to do is get on in and out so we can make our appointments on time. So when we come through your hometown please remember we are people like you. We have good days and bad days. We need to eat and move on. When you pull out of your drive and see a big truck coming give a few second to let it go on past you. I dont think any store or where you work is going to move. People who pull out in front of a big truck may cause the driver to slow down to be safe in case you werent then two block down you stop to mail a letter or something else. Think, did you get out on the street safely and allow the trucker to drive safely also? I cant say how much it help all of us if we use our turn signals. They put them on our vehicles for safety. It is no big secret where you are going. Turn signals help those behind you adjust to whats going on. And truck drivers appreciate it when you use them so they can take care of their loads and take care of you. I know everyone most likely can tell of bad encounters with a big truck. Well, for every time a truck driver offended you, the truck driver can tell of how a car driver has offended them. I guess I am saying we are all on the road together. We must share the road to be safe. So when you go to the store or a friends hose, share the road. Use your turn signals. Allow yourself time to get where you are going safely. Remember, be it a 18wheeler, semi or tractor trailer, these men and women have a load of freight to get somewhere. They arent being rude or ugly to you. They have a job to do and are trying to do it. Randall C. Tadlock Sr. Chipley LETTER TO THE EDITOR A wee bit of a rant I try not to have solid opinions toward any subject until I get as much fact as possible, but as most will nd this is next to near impossible. This rant is solely based on my opinion, and I dont know all the facts yet. Thats like a disclaimer on the long rant I have following that statement. It is about regulations on charity becoming so stringent that people cannot provide the services they once did. Example being The Closet that is at the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce. I found out recently they no longer were able to provide prosthesis for those who have had a mastectomy because new regulations state they are required to have a professional prosthesis tter in order to have those items available at The Closet. Just a little background on The Closet real quick, so you can get an idea of what Im talking about. The Closet provides hats, scarves, work hats for both men and women, wigs of all kinds and colors, prosthetic breasts, bras of all kinds and colors specially made for prosthetic breasts, cammies/softies, handmade comfy pillows, makeup availability, drivers, gas money, hotel and motel vouchers, supplies, support groups and single support from those who have experienced cancer and much more. Elaine May eld, a volunteer with The Closet, said her volunteer work with The Closet has changed her life. I came in expecting to work with people who are dying, May eld said. Instead I found that Im working with people who are truly living. Julia Bullington, coordinator and volunteer with The Closet, said it puts things into perspective. You get to thinking that all lifes little issues are so important, Bullington said. Theres meetings and schedules and appointments and theyre all so very important until you gain perspective from some of these women who come in who are truly living their lives to the fullest each day and suddenly you see what in life truly matters. Bullington and May eld shared a story about an elderly woman in her mid-70s who came in after much cancer treatment and was looking to get a wig to replace the hair she had lost. Originally she had this neat salt and pepper hair and we tted her with hair that was really close to what she had before, Bullington said. Her husband was sitting in their vehicle with a magazine waiting and when she rst came out with her wig he just glanced up and said that it was nice and went on reading. Bullington said she went back in and decided to go with a wig much like 70s model and actress Farrah Fawcett. When she walked out with that wig on he put down his magazine, he came out of the car and his eyes lit up, Bullington said. The rst words that came out of his mouth were you are beautiful! May eld explained that the most that women are looking for when they come to The Closet is to feel normal again; to feel like a woman again. May eld said her rst experience was with a woman who had a radical mastectomy, which is where they surgically removal of one or both breasts, partially or completely. I wasnt prepared for what I saw, May eld said. It was horrible and I tried to be respectful and remain steady, but it was her to say they made a mess, didnt they? I never would have imagined just how courageous and strong they are, even with their frail bodies. She said after that experience she had made it her goal to help correct the messes cancer had made in the lives of these peoples lives. What people do is come here looking for simple things like a scarf or a wig and they end up nding so much more, Bullington said. I didnt realize how much I wouldve become involved and how much of me would be leaving with every person. Its an amazing feeling watching these women transform into beautiful, happy women; going from sad to joyful. May eld told about a young lady in her late 20s who had a double mastectomy came in and said can you just give me some boobs and a wig? and can we get those a couple sizes bigger? The most amazing part is when she said she felt like a woman again, May eld said. We got her into her wig and her new bra and she looked in the mirror and said Oh my gosh! Im kinda hot! Thats what makes this all worth while; giving back what cancer has stolen. May eld also added there was a program that gave free make-up makeovers for cancer patient,s which includes free make-up valued in the hundreds of dollars. They use top-of the line products to restore facial tissue and renew a womans appearance after it has been ravaged by countless cancer treatments, May eld said. The clinics are located in Dothan and Crestview and the patients do have to get there on their own, but it is more than worth it. Bullington wanted to clarify The Closet isnt there just for breast cancer patients and they do give replacement prosthetics, bras, etc. Its great when they get a wig and they ask how much it is and we can tell them it is free because of those who support their local Relay for Life and give to the American Cancer Society, Bullington said. So I say that if they want to repay them then when they get better they should give back by becoming a team member for Relay for Life and raise money for others just like them. Its a very rewarding challenge and it makes you appreciate what you have. I know it is necessary to have regulations because it keeps people honest, but it also is frustrating to think that a service wont be provided because of over-regulation. Instead of taking something away because of regulation, I think they should have added; such as adding a professional tter on certain days of the week or month or provide training to those who volunteer. If you want to learn more about The Closet in Holmes County, call the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce at 547-4682. Thanks again for sitting with me, even if it is just a rant, and Ill be happy to see you again next week. OUR VIEW The Washington County Board of County Commissioners sent a message to local residents and potential new industries last week that the county is serious about investing in the local economy. Commissioners voted unanimously to earmark funds generated by a Northwest Florida Community Hospital loan repayment to the county to facilitate much-needed economic growth here. The annual repayment, due beginning December 2015, is anticipated to bring in about $96,000 a year during the next 30 years, and will serve as a negotiating jumping point to purchase back the formerly county-owned industrial park, as well as a source of securing property and infrastructure needed to attract new industry and jobs. These funds will help the county gain a better nancial position to compete for new jobs and industry. Commissioners were called upon last week to make an investment in the countys future. Given the countys current economic woes and the general toughness of economic times, it couldnt have been an easy decision but the boards investment into growing Washington County will pay big dividends. Currently, if an industry calls on Washington County wanting to know what property is available for relocating here, our economic leaders dont have much of anything to offer. Buying back the shovel-ready county industrial park and securing funds to improve infrastructure and other incentives for potential new business is a step in the right direction. Commissioners on right track for economic growth CECILIA SPEARS Cecilias Sit Down

Local A6 | Washington County News Wednesday, September 3, 2014 By JOHN HENDERSON 522-5108 | @PCNHjohn jhenderson@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH A lawyer for the Simon Prop erty Group has sent a cease and desist letter to the owners of Miracle Strip Amusement Park demand ing they close an entrance to the park. The amusement park owners recently opened a northwestern entrance opening, but a few feet after patrons walk out of it at the curb is Simons Pier Park parking lot. Pier Park has received numerous complaints that your customers and employ ees are using the unauthor ized gate, which negatively impacts the parking for our tenants and their custom ers, states the letter dated Aug. 13 from Simon lawyer Drew Price to park owner Teddy Meeks. Price referred all com ments to Simons market ing staff. Kelley Santiago, who handles marketing for Simons Pier Park project, said the company is not issuing comment at this time. Meeks said he and his wife, Jenny, will not close the gate, as doing so would cre ate a serious safety issue. When the opening was closed, families with children were walking in dim lights along L.C. Hilton Drive and Powell Adams Road, which dont have sidewalks, to get to the parks main entrance, he said. We had customers complaining that they were almost hit by cars, Meeks said. He estimated 95 per cent of the people using the northwestern entrance go to Pier Park rst, and after seeing the lights and rides, walk over to the amusement park. Simon has not only de livered the cease-and-de sist order, but Pier Parks security has called the po lice department numerous times in recent weeks al leging people from the park who are leaving through the opening are trespassing on Simons property. Police have been taking the reports but telling Pier Parks security it is a civil issue. Panama City Beach Police Chief Drew Whit man said police have been called quite a few times, but there is nothing the po lice can do unless a judge issues an order stating Miracle Strip must close the opening. Its just civil, Whit man said. We just go there (when a call is made) to try to keep the peace. Any time were taken to a call, it takes us away from other duties. If someone calls us, were go ing to respond. He said he can under stand why Simon is unhap py about Miracle Strip using their parking spaces. Thats (Simons) prop erty, and its for their busi nesses out there, and they are trying to protect that so people dont just eat up their parking spaces and go over to Miracle Strip, Whitman said. So they have a valid complaint. That is their property. They maintain it. They police it. Miracle Strip, they just want the business, so they dont really care where anyone parks. Teddy Meeks said Simon security calls to the police are simply harassment, using up valuable police time on an issue that is not criminal. If you want us to stop, then sue us, Meeks said. That is what the courts are for. I would so bitterly love to get this case in front of a jury of 12 people in Bay County. ... What this boils down to is a corporate bully using their money to get their way. Jenny Meeks said many of the amusement park cus tomers patronize Pier Park and the amusement park, so having the park entrance is good for business for both. She also said the amuse ment park operates a trolley ride that transports people around town, including to Pier Park, so that is saving parking spaces.UNRESTRICTED PARKING Meeks pointed out the Si mon parking lot adjacent to Miracle Strip falls in an area declared as unrestricted parking. That was outlined in an amended public improve ment partnership agree ment led in May between the city of Panama City Beach, the Panama City Beach Community Redevel opment Agency, Pier Park Community Development District and the St. Joe Co. It clearly discusses how this taxpayer money [used to develop Pier Park] is to be used to promote econom ic growth for all of Panama City Beach, not just Simon Properties, Meeks said. Panama City Beach Councilwoman Josie Strange said she shops at Pier Park and is glad it is here, but Simon has gone too far. I would think that Simon would have better things to do than to pick on a small in dependent business, rst, she said. Second, if they are concerned about the parking that Miracle Strip is supposedly taking, Id think theyd be more concerned about the parking that is used when there is a big con cert at the amphitheatre. She said the amusement park and Pier Park are both attractions that bring in cus tomers, which should help both of the businesses. You should be able to feed off each other, she said. I dont understand why there is so much drama when (Simon) had abso lutely no problem with their amusement facility when it was at Pier Park. Now its like they are trying to keep an independent busi nessperson from making a living.LIABILITY EXPOSURE Simons cease-and-desist letter states Pier Park has received numerous com plaints that Miracle Strips customers and employees are using the unauthor ized gate, which negatively impacts the parking for its tenants and customers. Miracle Strip does not have an easement, license or right to utilize Pier Parks property in this man ner and such use presents safety issues pertaining as your patrons are parking and walking across private property used for parking, Price states in his letter. As a result, the trespass also poses a risk of liabil ity exposure to both of our businesses. The letter adds that Si mon demands Miracle Strip immediately cease and desist the use of the un authorized entrance point and to remove the gate and reinstall the fence. Its not the rst ceaseand-desist letter the Meeks have received. Initially, they had been opening an emer gency gate on the northern side of the property to allow people to come in from that entrance. In a letter dated July 16, a lawyer for the St. Joe Co., which owns the property at the gate, demanded the Meeks close the gate. St. Joe lawyer H. Lee Strayhan III states in the letter the open gate pres ents a safety issue pertain ing to pedestrian trafc as your patrons are walking between the vehicular traf c driving on L.C. Hilton Drive. As a result, the trespass also poses a risk of liability exposure to both of our busi nesses, he writes. Jenny Meeks said they complied with this ceaseand-desist letter because the property at the gate was owned by St. Joe, whereas the property right outside of the opening on the north western side of the park is owned by the amusement park. We felt like we did need to comply with St. Joe on that, she said. We do not need to encourage peo ple to come across their property.

Deputies said upon arrival, they found three children, ages 2, 3 and 4, in the care and custo dy of their parents, Shane Ratliff and Constance Ratliff. Two of the children were locked in different bedrooms by make-shift cage-like doors. Each was found lying on the oor with no beds or furniture in the bedrooms, according to a po lice report. Both rooms were in fested with roaches, and the oors were covered in trash. One of the bedrooms had numerous dirty diapers scattered about the oor. The rest of the house was infested with roaches and cat feces. Shane Ratliff, 33, and Con stance Ratliff, 24, both of Mari anna, were arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse and one count of child abuse. The DCF took custody of the three children and placed them in a safe environment. PLANT CITY (AP) Floridas two main rivals for governor kicked their campaigns into gear on Monday as both Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist lashed out at each other in an effort to ramp up enthusiasm among core voters. Scott, the Republican incum bent seeking a second term, started a two-week bus tour at stops in eastern Hillsborough County and Bradenton, where he derided Crist as a slick politi cian and smooth talker. The tour was billed as a way for Scott to tout his plans to cut taxes an additional $1 billion over the next two years if hes reelected. But in an effort to recon nect with the conservative Re publicans who propelled him into ofce, he continually linked Crist with President Barack Obama during the rst stop at a hay and animal feed store. Hes just like Barack Obama. He thinks money grows on trees, Scott said. Those two are exactly the same. They are in for big spend ing, more debt and higher taxes. Scott campaigned ercely in 2010 as a conservative who was aligned with the tea party movement. But he has since then backed away from some of his positions, including the need to pass an Arizona-styled law on immigra tion and to sharply reduce gov ernment spending. By contrast, he is calling for more spending on education and the environment if he is re-elect ed. Scott is no longer calling for an Arizona-styled law and he also backed expansion of Medicaid despite it being a core compo nent of the presidents health care overhaul. Crist, who was elected as a Republican in 2006 but is seek ing a second term as a Demo crat, made his own effort to connect with Democratic voters by attending Labor Day picnics being put on by central Florida unions. He blasted Scott as a corpo rate governor who is crushing the middle class because hes allowing utility companies and property insurance companies to raise their rates. Crist scoffed at Scotts pledg es to increase spending on the environment and education and said they were an election-year conversion intended to get peo ple to forget Scotts record. Hes trying to be more like me, and I understand it because we do whats right for people and he does whats right for corpora tions, Crist said. Crist also repeated his sup port for policies backed by Dem ocrats, including raising the min imum wage to $10.10 an hour. Recent polls have essentially showed the two main candidates tied even though Scott has spent in excess of $20 million on televi sion ads that have sharply criti cized Crist. Crist and his Democratic al lies have responded with their own ads, but they have so far been greatly outspent by the Republicans. The question for both can didates is whether or not the rash of negative ads will depress voter turnout. If that happens, it will be crucial to turn out loyal supporters. Scotts bus tour is taking him into key Republican areas of the state including southwest Flori da and the Panhandle. State Sen. Tom Lee, R-Bran don, during the stop in Plant City called on conservatives to rally around Scott in order to help him win a second term. Crist, for his part, is getting help from former President Bill Clinton at a rally that will be held later this week in Miami. Backers at the union picnic called on union members to work hard to take this election.

Saunders ran for three touchdowns and passed for another, and he helped Arnold pull away in the second half of a 41-13 victory over the Blue Devils in a non-district high school football showdown at the Mike Gavlak Sports Complex. Saunders piled up 240 passing yards and 180 rushing yards in the game, which represented the season opener for both programs. Arnold, which competes in District 1-5A, enjoyed a numbers advantage over its Class 1A counterpart, Holmes County. The Marlins superior depth wore down Holmes County in the second half, and Saunders exploited that advantage as the game progressed. The two teams were tied at 13-13 at halftime, but an interception by Trentin Lewis gave Arnold possession at the Blue Devil 35. Six plays later, Saunders plunged into the end zone on a 1-yard run to put the Marlins on top 20-13 midway through the third quarter. Following a Holmes County punt, Saunders capped the Marlins next possession with a 13-yard romp to the end zone for a 27-13 advantage.

CAROL KENT | The News Chipley comes to the line in the rst half of its annual battle of Washington County Friday night against visiting Vernon. The Tigers claimed a 27-16 victory in the season opener for both teams. Chipley downs Vernon 27-16 From staff reports The Chipley Tigers outlasted the Vernon Yellow Jackets last Friday night in front of a huge crowd by a score of 27-16. Chipley started the scoring with a big opening kickoff return by Darren Stewart, followed by a toss sweep for a TD by Stewart. Vernon got on the scoreboard next on a safety by Marlon Stephens, and the rest of the Jacket defense at the 2:32 mark of the rst quarter. The score remained the same until Ryan Malloy scored to open the second quarter, and Vernon took the lead. Jacket Quarterback Tristan Porter went out with a knee injury in the middle of the second quarter, and a few plays later, a fumble recovery by Chipley was returned for a touchdown to give the Tigers back the lead. In the third quarter, the Jackets began to move the ball on offense and threatened to score until penalties negated their opportunity, and the Tigers recovered another Jacket fumble on their own 12 yard line to stop Vernons momentum. Early in the third quarter, Tristan Porter, playing injured, found Austin Brown down the sideline for a score to give the Jackets the lead. The lead would not last as a few plays later, following another good return, Darren Stewart would nd Carlon Smith on a reverse pass for the go ahead score. The Tigers would tack on another score following another Jacket turnover when quarterback Trey Thurman scrambled for the nal score of the night. Both teams still have district games ahead and have a chance to make a playoff run. The Jackets host West Gadsden in Vernon next week, and the Tigers will travel to play Northview Sept. 12.

Page A8 The historic, beautiful hilltop scenic landscape, three mile east of Chipley, has been known during my lifetime simply as The Egg Laying Contest. In July, a letter and picture was received at the Historical Society from a similar organization in Jacksonville showing two men in work clothes, with each carrying a large crate of eggs obviously gathered at this familiar facility. This picture was used by Editor Carol Kent in the Chasing Shadows segment in an effort to identify the two gentlemen. This development has prompted the Prattler to expound on the historical value of this longtime operation in the county in the column today. The title, shortened to The Florida National Egg Laying Test was mentioned in a story in The Washington County News, Centennial Supplement, of May 20, 1982. Copies of this special informative supplement are still available for sale the Washington County Historical Museum. The Florida National Egg Laying Test at Chipley, established in 1926, was fortunate to have as its rst supervisor, E. F. Stanton, well known leader in the poultry business. A native of Illinois, Stanton married Meroe Andrews. They came to Chipley with ve children from DeFuniak Springs, where the test originated and Stanton remained with the test until his retirement in September 1942. The 1982 story continues: Stanton received his early poultry training under Professor James Rice at Cornell University and was associated with the Missouri Test before coming to DeFuniak Springs in 1920. During his supervision of the Chipley facility, he watched it grow and entered pens of hens from many parts of the United States and Canada. The Stanton Breeding Farm at Chipley also entered pens of hens that won recognition in several national tests. Stanton had a winning personality and was a memorable character who recalled and told things that occurred in early years. He died August 27, 1971. He has children living near Chipley. This unit continued in operation as Florida Poultry Laboratory under the direction of A. W. OSteen until his retirement at which time Dr. R. Bruce Christmas, Sr. served as director until the facility ceased to operate. E. W. Carswell, in his 1991 book, Washington, Floridas Twelfth County, wrote extensively about this historic venture. (This book is still for sale at the Historical Museum.) Dr. R. Bruce Christmas added his experience in working at the center in the 2006 Heritage of Washington County Book. (Also for sale at the Museum) The Florida Poultry Evaluation Center at Chipley, Florida was established in 1926. It was rst known as The Florida National Egg Laying Contest, and was later changed to The Florida National Egg Laying Test, as the direction and emphasis of the facility changed. Dr. Christmass narrative continues: The rst study, initiated November 1, 1926, came about as a result of efforts of Mr. E. F. Stanton (the rst supervisor), and Mr. Gus York, County Extension Agent, Washington County. Mr. Stanton, employed by a similar facility in Missouri, had moved to North Florida to begin a poultry farm operation. After several meeting in NW Florida, community leaders in the city of Chipley requested the opportunity to sponsor the unit. Shortly thereafter approximately 14 acres of land (donated by the Alford Family) and more than $15,000 were pledged of its initial establishment. The property, located 3 miles east of Chipley and adjacent to U. S. Highway 90, was in constant operation as a poultry demonstration and study center for almost a full 70 years until closure came in early 1996. Newspaper accounts indicate that more than 3,000 people took part in the opening ceremonies. The Dr. Christmas story continues: For many years, production records were maintained on 80 to 100 entries of 10 hens each making up the standard test, which was conducted continuously until 1959. A more scienti c approach of selecting participants was initiated in 1951 with random sample testing and this was continued until the late 1970s. In 1968, the supervisory position was upgraded to require the supervisor be of professional status with both extension and research capabilities. At that time management and nutritional interrelated studies were and continued to be incorporated into genetic trails when conducted. During later years, the facility was used extensively to evaluate industry problems with laying hens, broilers and turkey in the areas of management and nutrition. Early buildings, in addition to many small units, were an of ce, a residence, and a storage facility. The center was known for its modernization through updating facilities as well as demonstration and study procedures to mesh with industry needs. During its many years, a wealth of information was generated, published, and disseminated to an industry, which has become one of the most ef cient providers of the worlds food supply. Dr. Bruce Christmas writing concludes: There were a total of four supervisors at the facility during its 70-year history. Names and tenure of service; E. F. Stanton, 17 years, Frank Dennis, 2 years, Woodrow OSteen, 23 years and Dr. R. Bruce Christmas, Sr., 28 years. This beautiful hillside location, laden with giant, towering long-leaf pine trees, is now the home of Veterinarian Todd Anderson and family. The buildings are still intact and in good repair with the facility serving as Washington Countys Animal Shelter. See you all next week as we delve into September. Washington County years ago ...

T rivia Fun Wilson Casey WC@Trivia Guy.com Love of country comes full circle for Maj. Kim Mitchell By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Maj. Kim Mitchell always knew he wanted to serve his country. A sixth grade writing assignment had Mitchell declaring, I pretend to be the leader of my squadron ... I understand it takes courage to ght for your country. I say it takes courage to have courage. I dream of ying all over the earth... Those words owed from the pen of a sixth grade Roulhac Middle School student and manifested themselves into Mitchells future. This Labor Day, the 1991 Chipley High School graduate celebrated more than the holiday at home with his family; he also celebrated the rst day of his retirement from the U.S. Army after 23 years, one month, and one day of service. Mitchell predicted his life as a pilot, although instead of military jets, he found himself ying helicopters. Eerily, the sixth grade essay also predicted one of the toughest moments in Mitchells career: the one in which he lost a member of his squadron. Kim usually ew out rst, said his mother, Joan Peterson. But that day, for whatever reason, someone else ew out rst, and they were shot down. It was difcult for Kim, as well as for us because we had the knowledge that the rst one out would have been him most any other time. The full effect of a man who not only loves his country, but was also determined to achieve his dreams, is apparent in a history submitted by his parents: Mitchell began his career in the Army in July 1991 as an Aircraft Armament Missile Systems Repairer. He began his enlisted service as a Private and rose in the ranks to Staff Sergeant, serving more than eight years, including assignments to Korea, Fort Polk, La., Fort Drum, New York, Fort Hood, Texas, and one deployment to Bosnia. In May 2000, he attended the Warrant Ofcer Candidate School (WOCS) and graduated from the Aviation Maintenance Technician (151A) Warrant Ofcer Basic Course (WOBC). As a warrant ofcer, he was assigned to instruct at the Aviation Maintenance Managers Course (AMMC) at Fort Rucker, Ala. In September 2002, he graduated from Ofcer Candidate School at Fort Benning, Ga., and then went back to Fort Rucker, where he attended ight school. After completing the Aviation Ofcer Basic Course (AVOBC) in October 2003, Mitchell started the AH-64D Apache Aviator Qualication Course (AQC) and graduated in April 2004. He was then assigned to Fort Hoods 1-6 Cavalry, where he and served as the Class III/V (Fuel and Ammunition) Platoon Leader, Charlie Troop Platoon Leader, and Battalion Assistant Operations Ofcer. In June 2007, after graduating from the Aviation Captains Career Course, he was selected to command Delta Company, 1-4 Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, also located at Fort Hood. After a successful 27 months of command, he was then reassigned to the National Training Center, Fort Irwin, California. in September 2009 as an OC/T (Observer, Coach and Trainer) for the Eagle Team. Major Mitchells nal assignment in his military career would be as Joint Air Operations Instructor/Writer for the Army Joint Support Team-Nellis (AJST-N) in Las Vegas, Nev. During his time as a commissioned ofcer, Mitchell earned a bachelors degree in business administration/ management through Excelsior College. He also deployed twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and served in duty positions at Fort Hood, Fort Irwin and Nellis AFB in Nevada. Major Mitchells awards and decorations include: Bronze Star Medal, two Meritorious Service Medals, Air Medal, six Army Commendation Medals, six Army Achievement Medals, two Meritorious Unit Citations, three Army Good Conduct Medals, National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Star, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal for Combat Service (four Bronze Campaign Stars), Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Korea Defense Service Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal, two Non-Commissioned Ofcer Professional Development Ribbons, Army Service Ribbon, four Overseas Service Ribbons, NATO Medal (Bosnia), Air Assault Badge, Combat Action Badge, Senior Army Aviator Badge, Senior Aviation Badge, The Order of Saint Michael, and The Tribal Order of the Athapaskan. Mitchells achievements dont end with his military career, however. He married Irene Guzman in March 2012 in San Francisco, Calif., and they are the proud parents of the very active Noah Elijah Mitchell, their 1-year-old son. Irene is a bilingual Speech/Language Pathologist by profession but is currently taking time off to raise Noah. Their family has recently moved to Upland, Calif., to reside while Kim begins his transition to the civilian sector in his new position as the Director of Services for AMSEC Safes. Mitchell is the son of Tommy and Joan Peterson of Chipley and older brother of Kris Mitchell, owner of Mitchell Sight and Sound in Chipley. I am a nutty boy who likes airplanes. I wonder what airplanes will be like in the future. I hear a jet engine roaring nearby; I see myself ying the worlds fastest jet into battles; I want to become a very famous pilot.

Special to The News Good pets come in all shapes and sizes. More unique to the pet realm, but still wildly popular, are amphibians. For those pet owners who enjoy the company of frogs, salamanders and other slimy friends, here are the ins and outs of owning amphibians as pets. Owners should educate themselves regarding the speci c species or type of amphibian they are considering as a pet prior to purchasing them, said Dr. Laura Kleinschmidt, veterinary intern instructor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Depending on the species, they may have species-speci c requirements or traits that would be important to know. For example, some species secrete toxins from their skin or special glands that would make them a less than ideal pet. Amphibians can also have very delicate skin that functions in breathing and absorption and should not be handled more than absolutely necessary. It is also important to keep in mind that amphibians are dependent on their environment for temperature regulation, and the preferred optimal temperature zone may vary depending on the species and part of the world they originated from. To regulate this, owners should have an appropriate thermostat to determine the temperature, and temperature gradients should be maintained to allow the animal thermoregulation. Providing a type of water source will vary depending upon if the amphibian is aquatic or mainly terrestrial. Water should always be free of chlorine, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pesticides, heavy metals, etc., Kleinschmidt said. In captive settings, deionized bottled water is usually used, and water should be tested regularly for appropriate pH and lack of these elements. The speci c water temperature for your amphibian is also very important and should be closely monitored with an appropriate thermometer. Water heaters are a must in most species to provide lukewarm water, and all water should be changed regularly for cleanliness. As far as feeding requirements go, most amphibians eat invertebrates, such as insects and worms (usually live). The food and water youve provided must be changed daily, as well as the amphibians excrement. Most captive amphibians will need mineral and vitamin supplementation to prevent nutritional-de ciency diseases, Kleinschmidt said. It is imperative that rst-time amphibian owners thoroughly educate themselves on the prospective species before bringing one home. I would not recommend an amphibian as a pet for young children (especially without adult supervision) as they should not be handled regularly, and when they are handled, special considerations apply, Kleinschmidt said. They also can suffer trauma if handled too brusquely. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University. Stories can be viewed online at vetmed. tamu.edu/pet-talk. Suggestions for future topics may be directed to editor@cvm.tamu.edu. Reports are for the week ending Aug. 29.

Proverbs 22:28 Todays church faces a serious malady. The symptoms are spiritual complacency or boredom, which can be described as a restless impatience with protocol. This so permeates current Christian temperament that it cannot be blandly ignored. The cause can be linked to invading worldliness in the church. It is dif cult to think of a time when worldliness has been more prevalent. The inexcusable tragedy is that many accept this wretched condition as normal and are not seeking a remedy, but rather ways to justify it. Most do not know the difference for they have not seen a time when the Spirit of God moved mightily on a congregation. Everywhere you turn these days, the religious media is decrying the menace of tradition as though it alone bears the responsibility for the unprecedented decline in spirituality among us. Someone has pointed out that history is an important part of life. If you have no history, you have no future. And, it is history that creates tradition. Tradition helps us evaluate personal experiences and circumstance, and the various movements that invade each generation. The present generation, however, nds history extremely boring and has no patience with it. As a result of this languid boredom with the past, mistakes of the past repeat themselves. In our feverish eagerness to be contemporary we have ignored historic perspective to our spiritual jeopardy. One important aspect of tradition is doctrine. Many have replaced the systematic teaching of Bible doctrine with things more suited to a casual style of living. Drama, musicals, and entertainment is the acceptable fare of too many churches today. Few Christians are willing to be exposed to the reproof of Gods Word week after week. Only those with an insatiable desire for personal holiness will put up with the plain teaching of Gods Word and adjust their life and lifestyle accordingly. Numerous religious leaders view church goers as unwary consumers who have to be sold something they like. The pulpit must give what the people want to hear rather than what God wants proclaimed. Today the pollster has more in uence than the prophet; statistics are studied more devoutly than the scriptures; and the law-ofaverages is more prominent than the law of God. We want to know the latest trend so we can get aboard. Cultivating the depraved appetites of the esh has resulted in the spiritual decline of an entire generation. Religious leaders have been slick in disguising these carnal appetites and have always found an eager following. Just a little twist of the Scriptures and almost anything seems unquestionably permissible for the Christian. Even the gross sexual sins among religious leaders seem acceptable and glossed over as insigni cant. No one seems to object anymore. Forgiveness of sin has come to mean something other than what God intended. It has degenerated into some subtle magic spell that makes all consequence disappear. The idea of disobedience without consequence is totally foreign to the scriptures. Even though David found forgiveness for his sin, he still faced the repercussion of his action. The vogue these days is for people to despise tradition. Usually, it is some young fellow trying to impress others with his spunk, hoping to make a name for himself. There will always be those who think it their job to be a self-appointed iconoclast and do away with the traditions of the fathers. There is a time to throw off the yoke of the past. This calls for a discerning eye to know what needs to be set aside and when to set it aside. Our motives behind what we do are complicated. Dr. Tozer often said, I have to account to God not only for what I have done, but for why I did it. The Bible points out that the heart is deceitful ... There are times when our heart will deceive us into thinking our motives are right and our interest in progress and truth is genuine. There are prevailing See TRADITION B5 DR. JAMES L. SNYDER Out to Pastor

circumstances when certain traditions must be set aside. A tradition needs to be set aside when it has valiantly served its avowed purpose. Many passively accept a tradition handed down by the Fathers without any conscientious regard to the signicance behind it. The tradition then degenerates into a burdensome ritual because we feel some obligation to continue. We have no idea of the blood behind it nor the alarming conditions that brought it into being in the rst place. Many traditions handed down by the Fathers were a passionate reaction to some wrong in society or the church at the time. Long after dealing with that grievous wrong the tradition goes on, unnecessarily. At the time the tradition was a vigorous protest and witness used mightily by God. The battle is over now and most have forgotten the conict, but the tradition lingers on without life or purpose. There is a danger that in time the tradition will hinder the progress of the church in the task of world evangelism. People become comfortable with the tradition and take comfort in holding on to it. The test of acceptable fellowship becomes identied with that tradition. Confusion sets in because some do not understand the functional signicance of the tradition and, accordingly, do not support it. This brings them under suspect of the religious hierarchy. This prevailing attitude distinctly intimidates the old guard who take to defending the tradition as though it were an irrevocable part of Christianity. The tense confusion in the camp leads to internal conict and otherwise good and sane men begin attacking one another. A beautiful diversion tactic designed by the contemptuous enemy of the cross. Then a tradition hinders individual spiritual development, it must be dealt with. This is not an easy call to make, I assure you. What hinders one person in his spiritual development may effectively help another. The Apostle Paul said, If meat causeth my brother to stumble, I will eat no meat ... It must be acknowledged that some traditions are merely a matter of rote. The potential danger is it can, and often does, develop Gertrude Maria Shatas, 91, of Sunny Hills and formerly of Huntsville, Ala., passed peacefully on Sunday surrounded by the Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus and family. Gertrude was born in BielskoBiala, Poland, the oldest child of Jozef and Elzbieta (Krywult) Gawlas. In her early years, she lived through war and Nazi occupation, during which her close family was torn asunder. At 19, to escape an imminent Soviet invasion, she ed through snow and bombing runs with her youngest brother in tow to Tbingen, Germany, where she found employment with the United Nations Relief Organization (UNRA). She met and married Romualdas (Romas), a university student who ed the Soviet invasion of the Republic of Lithuania. With the help of the Red Cross, she located her family, and, when her brother Tadeusz was released from a Soviet gulag, she helped him make his way to Germany and then Canada. In 1950, Gertrude immigrated with husband and two infant sons to the U.S. She supported Romass career as a physicist and they settled in Huntsville, Ala., where Romas was employed by the Army at Redstone Arsenal. Gertrude and Romas retired to Sunny Hills in 1987 and they found joy and fellowship in the small Polish-Lithuanian community centered on St. Theresas Catholic Church. After Romass death, and as her health declined, Gertrude was cared for by the loving Vestiarki Sisters of Jesus. Gertrude embraced life in the U.S. but never forgot her family or homeland behind the Iron Curtain and aided them throughout her life. Gertrude was a devout Catholic, dedicated to home and family, and always ready to help others in need. Her family cherishes memories of her storytelling, gourmet Austrian dinners and many beautiful houseplants. She is predeceased by her beloved husband, Romas; son, George; sister, Elzbieta and brother, Johannes. Gertrude is survived by her daughter, Angela (Adrian); three grandchildren, Kristina, Luke and Paul, of Chapel Hill, NC.; son, Remigius (Sue) of Huntsville, Ala.; granddaughter, Mandy Shatas Nelson (Mike); three great-grandchildren, Melody, Marshall and Marisa of Huntsville, Ala.; granddaughter, Lara Shatas Lenard (Casey) of Birmingham, Ala.; son, Steven (Meiying); granddaughter, Sophia of Saratoga, Calif.; son, Thomas; grandson, Alex, of Sunny Hills; grandson, Michael Cairns of England; brother, Tadeusz Gawlas; nieces, Monica and Stephanie, of Canada; brother Klemens Gawlas; nieces and nephew, Beata, Brygida and Jurek, of Poland; nephew, Michael Gawlas of Australia.

Shatas GERTRUDE SHATAS Crossword SOLUTION into a serious spiritual rut. The dangerous thing about the man in a spiritual rut is that he does not know it. He has come to that vulnerable place where going through certain rituals and motions make him feel comfortable. Motion satises him and any challenge to this is intimidating. Many confuse motion with progress. A small boy on a rocking horse has plenty of motion and noise, but there is virtually no progress. Some traditions afford much motion but actually hinder progress. Again, tradition must be set aside when through the passing down it has become distorted and no longer means what it originally meant. The words are the same but the denitions have changed. In making an unalterable stand, our fathers devised certain phrases and activities to express succinctly their protest. Those Church Fathers coined words and phrases that had tremendous power when rst used. Now, like spent cartridges, they are powerless to do what they once did. At one time they profoundly moved an entire generation toward God. Now the denition, altered and diluted, has lost its ability to offend. And then some Reformer comes along to challenge that word or phrase, and the Defenders rise to the occasion. To challenge that phrase or word is, in their mind, to challenge established truth. Some have forgotten that a word or phrase is only a vehicle to convey an idea. The idea fades, yet the phrase remains intact. The meaning becomes distorted so the idea is lost in the verbiage. We have a fatally divided church now. On one side you have the Reformers and on the other side are the Defenders. How and why God puts up with this is a mystery of Divine patience. Some things are not worth ghting about. When a tradition has no scriptural authority it must be dealt with. Many extra-biblical things have come into the church and, in some instances, crowded out legitimate things. Each generation needs to have a spiritual garage sale to rid the accumulated religious junk impeding real spiritual progress. However, there comes a time to defend and preserve the traditions of the past. Simply because something is old does not mean it is outdated. Some things have a timeless quality. There comes a time unfalteringly to stand for the truth. Dr. A. W. Tozer once said in a sermon, There comes a time for every Christian, every church, every Christian organization to decide, shall we modify the truth in order to gain more adherents or shall we stand for the truth come what may. It is time for us to face this great decision in our own generation. Tradition must be preserved when it carries forward the invincible truth of Gods word. Most traditions came into existence because they expressed Gods truth to a generation. As long as that tradition can be used of God in presenting truth to a generation, it must be carefully preserved at all cost. Behind every tradition is a potent reason for its existence. To discover that reason is the sacred obligation of each generation of Christians. Because we fail to do so does not invalidate the tradition. It might foster holiness of living or enhance the operations of the Holy Spirit. The healthy existence of the church in every generation relies on the preservation of vital traditions handed down by the fathers.
