By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com Washington County Supervisor of Elections Carol Finch Rudd and Holmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris say absentee voters need not worry about their ballots. Both elections of ces received calls from concerned voters this week after a confusing yer from Gov. Rick Scotts Lets Get to Work campaign arrived in their mailboxes. The mail-out proclaimed a voter alert, informing absentee ballots already should have arrived and voters should contact the elections of ce if they have not been received. This is causing a lot of unnecessary concern, Rudd said. The only ballots that have been (mailed) are for the Military and overseas voters. Florida law prohibits all others from being (mailed) prior to the Oct. 2 date. Morris added additional requests for absentee ballots should go out within two days of being led. Voters can request an absentee ballot be mailed to them until Oct. 29, Morris said. State law mandates the earliest domestic absentee ballots may go out is Sept. 30, and they may be sent to voters through Oct. 31. Scotts campaign didnt directly address the confusion caused by the mail out; however, spokesperson Jackie Schutz encouraged voters to take advantage of the absentee voting option in a timely manner and stumped for the Governors re-election. Voting by mail is important, and we hope that all voters will receive and return their vote-by-mail ballots promptly, Schutz said. With his strong record of job creation and record investments in education, were con dent voters will cast their vote-by-mail ballots for Rick Scott.

Deputies were called to 1327 10th St. about 7 p.m. Friday after Cox found the bodies.

Busting at the seams I cannot contain my overwhelming excitement during this time of the year. Fall is in the air and there are so many things I have to look forward to right in our own backyard. I love my job but I must admit that this time of year it becomes more like a vacation. There is so much that goes on that I have the privilege to participate in. To begin with, you have the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo, which I know I went into last week but I just want to add that the festivities start well before the rodeo. Festivities usually run all week and by festivities I mean the area getting geared up with booths, vendors and activities. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be youth rodeo held by God is Faithful Ministries. Thursday is Childrens Night where children get in free. Friday night is Military Night and they promise to have a very memorable presentation in honor of our veterans. Saturday is one of my personal favorites. Theres the 5K Bull Run starting at Middlebrooks Park. After the run Ill fuel back up with a totally yummy pancake breakfast at the Bonifay Fire Department; boy can they make some pancakes. After that theres the parade at 1 p.m. down Main Street and theres more than enough to keep everyone occupied until the gates open at 5 p.m. Saturday is Tough Enough to Wear Pink and I heard this year it is going to be huge. There will be a presentation that will be both amazing and moving, not to mention there will be plenty of pink items to be bought that will raise money for the local PINK program. The pink program helps local women get examined; help for those who wouldnt otherwise be able to because of nancial restraints. The American Cancer Societys local Relay for Life will be represented there as well to sign up survivors and provide information about upcoming events. Im also excited about this new business that has arrived in Bonifay. The place is called Hammack Farms and it is ran by an amazing couple living their dream to be involved in bringing something to the community. They took a large area of wooded area and turned it into a working farm and fall festival destination for the whole family. Mrs. Hazel Tison is doing her feature on the farm but I dont think enough can be said about this amazing new place. Im excited because I have a love, an addition even, to everything pumpkin and apple related and this place is going to have it all. Pumpkins off all shapes and sizes from all over and a large variety apple items. Not to mention a corn maze, hay rides and a large slide and thats just for the stuff adults can do. If I were a child, I dont think I would ever want to leave. Oct. 4 also will be a teaser opening for the farm, which will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. That is where Ill be at before the parade on Saturday. Good thing is that it is only $8 to get in and they have a debit card reader for all those purchases Im going to make. Pumpkin and apple everything. Before you know it, it will be Halloween again and you dont have to go far to nd some spooktacular activities. Washington County Historical Society has a haunted tour that I cant wait to try. I love haunted tours and to have one in the city where I was born is like a dream come true. I have went all over trying out tours. I have been to the haunted tour in downtown Pensacola, I have been to the one at Sandestin and my personal favorite is the haunted tours of St. Augustine. I think my fascination is history with an atmosphere of mystery and intrigue, though the promise of something spooky is rather exciting as well. I am hoping that the couple in Caryville will have their haunted trail again this year. Something I really miss is the Doctors Memorial Hospitals Haunted Hospital. They did a terri c job setting up this spooky maze though the old hospital. They also utilized the amazing talent of the Holmes County High School Drama Department. Boy can those kids act. Their amazing talent really set the stage to be scared. Washington County has their scarecrow contest and that has a few activities and entertainment of its own. The scarecrow contest has grown quite a bit in the few years it has been around. I hope this year there will be a Legends and Lore at the Falling Waters State Park. They always had the neatest booths, vendors and demonstrators during the day and the neatest ghost stories at night. What made these ghost stories so need is that they are actual legends about this area. All the local areas will be holding their trick-or-treat activities, although most of them have turned into truckor-treats where everyone gathers at one, well lit place to distribute candy and to hold festivities. Bonifay has Light the Night, provided by the Bonifay First United Methodist Church and Chipley has their annual Trunk-or-Treat. Do you know of any fun activities going on? Let us know, we would love to share it with everyone. I also might not mind paying a visit, too. Let us know at wcnnews@chipleypaper. com. I cant wait to hear from you.

As an adult, not much has changed. I still tend to take in strays both the four and two-legged variety. What friends call my save the world efforts have gotten me in trouble more than once. With this in mind, it was no wonder Lightning the Newscat took up residence at the of ce of my former newspaper. Long story short: I saved another kitten that had been carelessly tossed beside U.S Highway 1 from a moving car. After weeks of recovery, the kitten grew strong but with a penchant for tormenting our senior cat around the house, Lightning. I quietly relocated Lightning to the of ce for his own protection, where he lived, quite uneventfully, for several months. Lightning had his own visitors, including neighborhood children who stopped in to tell him hello or scratch behind his ears. This lasted until Cheryl Williams, president of the papers parent company, stopped in, unaware a snowy white cat had taken up residence. Cheryl stepped to the back of the of ce where I was working and, of course, thats the moment Lightning decided to skitter across her path. I didnt know we have a cat, she said with a bewildered smile and obvious surprise on her face. Do we have mice? No, maam, I replied with a sheepish grin. See how well hes working out? I bit back an observation that Lightning didnt know about Cheryl, either, or he wouldnt have scampered so frantically. All the while, my mind was resurrecting a long-passed conversation about the inadvisability of animals around a business of ce. Lightning soon was no longer a fulltime staffer at the paper. My former boss was correct to instruct me to relocate my feline assistant, so I continue to help animals in other ways. Years ago, neighbors went days without feeding one lone little puppy in their yard. Disgusted, I launched a covert and probably illegal puppynapping. (Question: Has the statute of limitations run out?) Dubbed Sadie, the pup eventually died the way every animal should of old age and warmly loved by a caring family. Of course, the methods I used arent likely the most advisable ways to help, so heres a more convenient (and legal) way you can assist animals in Holmes and Washington counties and our overrun local shelters: Animal Control of West Florida currently has animals in need of adoption, as well as a need for volunteers and donations. For information on how you can help, contact them at 638-2082 or visit their shelter, at 686 U.S. Highway 90 in Chipley. Their hours of operation are from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Saturday. You could save a life and forge a life-long bond in the process. CAROL KENT Editor Amendment reviews Amendment review: No on No. 1 W hen Florida voters go to the polls Nov. 4, they will do more than choose a governor; they will decide the fates of three proposed amendments to the state constitution. The rst, Amendment 1, is called the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative. Amendment 1 would require that no less than 33 percent of net revenue from the existing excise tax on documents be spent on conservation. Speci cally, according to the ballot summary, it would enable the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; sh and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites. In truth, theres little new here. Amendment 1 would not raise taxes. The Land Acquisition Trust Fund already exists to buy land for conservation, although its landbuying budget has been slashed in recent years. What Amendment 1 would do is provide a guaranteed source of land acquisition funds for 20 years. That may be unwise. If voters approve Amendment 1, a signi cant spending mandate will be locked into the Florida Constitution. One-third of documentary stamp revenue will have to go to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund, regardless of the state of the economy or other budgetary needs. How much money would that be? The Financial Impact Estimating Conference says Amendment 1 would commit $648 million to land-buying in scal 2015-16. After 20 years, the annual sum could be $1.26 billion. Thats a lot of money for a program buying up more and more land to put under government control that is inherently wasteful. In past editorials, this newspaper has applauded reductions in Florida land-buying expenditures. The state owns enough land. Some estimates put the total as high as 30 percent of Florida acreage, all of it shielded from taxation and requiring taxpayer dollars for upkeep. Amendment 1 would make a bad situation worse. Vote no. Amendment review: No on No. 3 Florida has a process by which its governor can ll judicial vacancies. When a judge or a state Supreme Court justice reaches the mandatory judicial retirement age of 70, or fails to qualify for a retention election or loses such an election, the governor can appoint a successor from candidates selected by a nominating commission. But the Supreme Court has ruled that a vacancy in a merit retention judicial of ce does not occur until the end of the judge or justices term. Thus, judicial vacancies may occur on the same day a new governor is sworn in. The courts 2006 ruling means the newly sworn-in governor, not the outgoing governor, gets to ll those vacancies. That makes sense. In such instances, the new governor chooses the judges or justices he or she will work with. Amendment 3 on Floridas Nov. 4 ballot, the Prospective Judicial Vacancies amendment, would turn the process upside-down. The ballot language says it authorizes the governor to prospectively ll a vacancy in a judicial of ce to which election for retention applies Lets guess that Charlie Crist wins the governors race next month but Floridians grow weary of him and hes out after one term. He will leave of ce Jan. 8, 2019 the same day Florida Supreme Court justices R. Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente and Peggy Quince, liberals all, are to step down because of the age limit. Crist could choose their replacements as hes walking out the door. Under Amendment 3, whoever is the outgoing governor on Jan. 8, 2019, will be able to appoint (the justices) successors before the incoming governor is inaugurated later that day, according to Ballotpedia. That doesnt seem fair. The process already in place works ne. Vote no on Amendment 3. Our V IEW

In honor of World Rabies Day on Sept. 28, here is some information to help further raise awareness about rabies and how to help protect your family and pets from this deadly disease. Rabies is an infection affecting the central nervous system, or brain and spinal cord, of humans and animals. This infection is caused by a virus that is transmitted primarily from bites wounds, scratches or tissue from an infected animal. It is almost always deadly if not treated before the beginning of symptoms. Symptoms include fever, lethargy, seizures and ultimately paralysis, said Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. This paralysis can include paralysis of the muscles that control swallowing, leading to a fear of water or hydrophobia that is often described with rabies. Behavior changes leading to abnormally aggressive behavior may also occur. Because humans and animals usually become infected through a bite by a rabid animal, many believe it will be easy to tell when or if the disease has been spread to them. However, it is entirely possible for rabies to be transmitted to you or your pet unknowingly. Bat bites or scratches, for example, may be so miniscule that they go unnoticed. Bats are the most common carriers of rabies in the United States, Eckman said. It is important to always avoid any contact with them. If you have come into contact with a bat, inform animal control ofcers in your area so they can submit the bat for testing, if possible, and contact your doctor. Although bats are the biggest threat to humans, household dogs can easily contract the disease if bitten by another infected dog or animal. Worldwide, dogs are a common transmitter of the disease via bite wounds, Eckman said. But it can also affect humans, cats, farm animals, raccoons and many other warmblooded animals. The time from exposure to the virus until symptoms appear is usually only a few months, and unfortunately, once symptoms begin, there is little hope in humans for survival. There are treatments that can be given after a bite and before symptoms begin (post-exposure) that are useful, Eckman said. They include human rabies immunoglobulin, followed by a series of rabies vaccines given over a two-week period. These shots help the bodys immune system destroy the disease in its early stages, and getting them before symptoms appear is usually helpful in preventing infection. However, prevention is always said to be the best treatment, and that couldnt be truer when it comes to the rabies virus. The easiest method of prevention is to always steer clear of unknown or aggressive animals. This includes avoiding contact with stray dogs, bats or any wild animals, as well as avoiding the handling of a dead animal. Depending on the situation, preventative rabies vaccinations may also be a recommended method. Vaccination can greatly reduce the risk of infection for people who have a high risk of exposure, such as those who work with animals, including veterinarians, Eckman said. Companion animals and farm animals should be appropriately vaccinated by a veterinarian. If you think that you or someone in your family has been exposed to the rabies virus, wash the affected area with soap and water for ve minutes after potential exposure, and seek immediate medical attention. Rabies is more common than you might think, and preventing its transmission to you or your loved ones is the most effective form of treatment.

Suggestions for future topics may be directed to editor@cvm. tamu.edu. RABIES A DEADLY DISEASE Rabies is a deadly viral disease that can be prevented but not cured. The virus attacks the brain of warm-blooded animals, including people. In Florida, raccoons have been reported most frequently followed by bats, and foxes. Since the 1980s, rabid cats were reported more frequently than rabid dogs. WHAT DO I DO IF AN ANIMAL BITES ME? Try to get a complete description of the animal, and determine where it is so that it can be picked up by animal control staff for quarantine or rabies testing. Go to your family doctor or the nearest emergency room. Call your county health department or animal control agency with the animals description and location. Instructions will be given on how to quarantine the animal for 10 days if it is a dog, cat, or ferret or be tested for rabies. If you kill the animal, be careful not to damage the head, and avoid further contact with the animal even when it is dead. The rabies virus is highly concentrated in the brain tissue; therefore, this is why the head is usually sent for testing. WHAT DO I DO TO P R OTECT MYSELF, MY FAMILY AND MY PETS F R OM R ABIES? Vaccinate all of your dogs, cats, ferrets, and horses against rabies. Avoid contact with wild or stray animals. Never feed wild or stray animals. Do not allow your pets to run free. Keep your animals on your property. Support animal control in your community. If your animal is attacked by a wild, stray, or unvaccinated animal, do not examine your pet for injuries without wearing gloves. Wash your pet with soap and water to removed saliva from the attacking animals. Do not let your animals come into contact with other animals or people until the situation can be dealt with by animal control or county health department staff. Notify your primary care provider for treatment of wounds and for rabies vaccines. Report all animal bites to your local county health department. Call The Holmes County Health Department at 547-8500 or The Washington County Health Department at 638-6420.

Most are harmless except to the plants they munch on. There are a few that will cause humans pain if they are handled or touched. One of these venomous caterpillars is called the saddleback, which is native throughout the eastern United States and is found throughout Florida home gardens. Many caterpillars only feed on specic and limited species of plants. The saddleback caterpillar, Acharia stimulea, can be found anywhere in the home garden because it eats a wide variety of plants. This caterpillar is quite a bit shorter than other Lepidoptera and has brown ends covered with venomous spines. The central portion of the body is bright green with a brown dot in the center. The spines on the front and back of the caterpillar are hollow and can break off and embed in the skin when disturbed. They contain hemolytic and vesicating venom that cause burning sensations on and reddening of the skin and later sweating and blistering. Spines should be removed promptly before any other treatment methods are applied because the longer the spines are embedded in the skin, the more venom is applied. In rare cases, severe symptoms develop and may include migraines, gastrointestinal symptoms, asthma complications, anaphylactic shock, rupturing of erythrocytes and hemorrhaging. The best strategy for managing this insect is prevention of sting. If working in the yard in dense growth where these might not be easily observed, wear gloves and long sleeves. They are not aggressive and very slow moving, so they are easily avoided. Since they are seldom present in large numbers, the preferred method of control is removal from plants with forceps. Registered insecticides, such as those containing Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis), are effective controls of this insect. A variety of host species are available to satiate the palate of this caterpillar. Some more common hosts are maple, viburnum, holly, palm, sunower, artichoke, dogwood, cycad (sago palm), blueberry, huckleberry, wisteria, chestnut, oak, hydrangea, pecan, crape myrtle, hibiscus, sweet corn, loquat, common apple, crabapple, photinia (red tips), black cherry, pear, rose, elm, grape and gardenia.

Maybe its because your writer has just reached another milestone in life that his thoughts have turned to the topic of dogs and their in uence in his life. In my formative years, there was always a dog on the premises, who enjoyed the rights and privileges of the household. He justi ed his up-keep as the eyes and ears of the property, night and day, including when the owner was present or absent. His duties were needed in controlling the movement of a herd of hogs from one eld to another. The command ketch em was soon learned by our dog and instinctively he knew how to catch the unruly hog by an ear and hold him until he conformed. The family watchdogs presence in the moving of the more docile cattle kept them going in the right direction. My dad, Hugh Wells, kept a dog as a companion and security in his advanced years. At one time he owned a Collie, named Laddie, and boarded a large, sleek black Doberman, named Skeet, for our sister Gail. Our four sons vividly recall the antics of these pets as they continually vied for the attention and approval of their master, our aged father. It seems that many of the farm dogs were named Tige. Later in life, it seems that all the dogs were Clydes dogs for some unknown reason. In his adult years, a dog or dogs remained extremely important to him. His male german shepherd, named Prince, could understand and obey the commands of his master in a most uncanny manner. When Clyde was leaving his home in his El Camino, Prince would assume that he was going also and would immediately jump into the back of the vehicle. My brother would quietly announce Prince, you are not going. The obedient animal would forthwith alight from the truck. Dogs have remained important in the life of our brother, Max, also. At any given time, he has had one or more watch dogs around his home. One had the unique name of Gaylord, having been picked up as a stray at a Gaylord store. The late Ralph C. Carter owned a special dog by the mane of Walmart. He was rescued from the grounds of the local Wal-Mart store, thus the name. It was the writers pleasure to see this dog in action as he rode the golf cart with Ralph, assisting in the round-up of cows the owner was attempting to corral into the barn. Our family tried owning a dog while living in Panama City. We were fortunate to have a beautiful and loving German shepherd, also named Prince. He was hit by a car while accompanying sons, Tim and Grant, as they delivered the Panama City News Herald in the residential neighborhood. The dogs injuries proved fatal and the grief brought to all of us by his death convinced the family that we were not prepared for pet ownership. Soon after our arrival in Chipley, we had two mongrel dogs volunteer to be ours. The sons named them Frank and Henderson. The later one was a docile, brindle dog and caused no problems. Frank, a mixed breed, showed forth his mean streak early after arriving. He assumed watchdog duties at our Sears store, and soon attacked and bit a customer. All of this prompted the assignment of both dogs to other owners. Later, a Fiest female was left behind on our street when her owners moved from town. She attached herself to our family immediately and became our dog. We gave her the demeaning name of Poochie. She delivered a litter of beautiful puppies, which we all enjoyed, before she was struck and killed on South Boulevard. Gordon, our youngest son, has probably set the record for dog ownership while he and Donna reared Dan and Deanna. Tragedy and sadness came to them on June 11 when they detected problems with their special, lovable dogs, Pete and Spike. Dr. Meigs Woodham soon gave them the dreaded diagnosis that both had experienced multiple poisonous snake bites. Pete, the Labrador retriever, reared from a pup, who came into their home in August 2002, had the most serious wounds. Spike, the mixed breed, was brought into the family as a puppy, when Gordon found him in December 2001, abandoned by the mama dog near the railroad crossing on Grif n Road. Pete succumbed to the snake bite wounds and Spike is going it alone in the fenced yard and shelter provided by his master. The study of these two animals personality and behavior, both as a twosome and now with Spike only, is proving extremely educational and interesting. Our son, Emory, has been in the dog business for several years. He and wife, Robbin, acquired a pair of Collies, Sonny Boy and Honey Girl, with the plan to raise pups to sell. Honey Girl either escaped from the enclosure, or was taken away, and has not been seen since. My niece, Maria Rogers Heil, accepted the sad news on April 14 on her dog, Fisher, which she had owned for six years. Her Tallahassee veterinarian, Dr. Walker, gave Fisher the diagnosis of Lymphoma, explaining there is no cure. She was then consoled by the doctor when he told her: with dogs, we are looking for quality of life, not just longevity. Paraphrasing Marias quote from Dean Koontz: Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of it self. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish, consciously or unconsciously, that we were as innocent as they are. Much to her son, Grahams delight, Fishers demise has allowed for a young female Labrador puppy, Delta, to be brought into the home. Two songs of the past have come to mind while dwelling on the subject of dogs. T. Texas Tyler did a recitation of his song about his dog named Bruce entitled: Dad Gave My Dog Away. Research it on Yahoo and see if it doesnt stir the emotions. Then continue looking for Old Shep, written by Red Foley and Arthur Willis in 1933. Red Foley, Hank Snow, Elvis Presley, and possibly others recorded this tear jerker, which can still evoke tears. I have thoroughly enjoyed recalling and writing this short narrative on a few dogs I have known. What is your dog story? Share it with me. Maybe I will write it next week.

The Bonifay Kiwanis Club pays special tribute to two long-time rodeo families in this 70th year of the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. The Foy Reynolds and the Ox Long families will be recognized and participate as grand marshals during the two parades. FOY REYNOLDS Foy and Jody Reynolds came as contestants to the Bnifay rodeo from Texas in 1958. Foy became a RCA (PRCA) stock contractor in 1959. He produced rodeos all along the Eastern Seaboard from New York to Homestead, Florida. He produced the Bonifay rodeo during the 1960s into the early 1970s. Foy held the arena record in the steer wrestling at Madison Square Garden for years and was an outstanding calf roper. Jody was a rodeo secretary and an accomplished trick rider. She trick rode at Madison Square Garden and the major rodeos in the U.S. She traveled to Cuba and the Dominican Republic as a trick rider. Their family members have continued the rodeo legacy as riders, ropers and racers, including Dallas Reynolds Dewees and Randa Dewees, both of whom will be competing this year. The family also operates the Foy Reynolds Cattle Co. .W.B. O X L ONG William BurvieOx Long brought his family to Bonifay by horse and wagon after World War II. He had worked in Texas as a cowboy ranch hand in the 1930s and was called back to the great state of Florida by the US Government in the early 1940s to round up cattle in central Florida. Ox and his family also bought, trained, and sold horses. They traveled to Rodeos for completion and contracted rodeo acts, and caught wild cattle as a way of life and to make their living. Ox participated in the very rst Bonifay Rodeo in the Bull Riding and Bulldogging called steer wrestling today where he won rst place. He knew the local people with livestock and helped provide the stock by rounding up horses and bulls from the surrounding area. Ox made his living with horses, cattle and Rodeo. Today he passes on a rodeo legacy that is still going strong through his children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren, who continue his legacy with great ability and pride.

Gates will open daily at 5:30 p.m. The Bonifay Kiwanis Club Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo is a PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association) sanctioned Dodge Series Rodeo sponsored in part by Bob Pforte Motors. In conjunction with the rodeo, there will be a Rodeo Parade through downtown Bonifay on Friday and Saturday at 1 p.m. Thursday night is Kids Night, where kids get in free; Friday night is Military Appreciation Night, where everyone shows respect to our military by wearing red, white and blue and Saturday night is Tough Enough to Wear Pink, where everyone dresses in pink to support breast cancer awareness and to raise money for the PINK program (Protection Is In Knowledge), a local program that helps local residents with funding for screening and early detection. Through PINK, the Holmes County Health Department and TriCounty Community Council will be able to better help detect breast cancer through early screening. During the first full weekend of October, Bonifay, goes country when the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo comes to town. Since its inception in 1944, the Bonifay Kiwanis Club has sponsored the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo and continues to carry the tradition of ensuring quality family entertainment. More than 25,000 people (eight times the population of Bonifay) can be found in Bonifay during the rodeo weekend. Some people even schedule their only week of vacation to be a part of the rodeo action by camping out in the Bonifay Kiwanis Club designated camping areas. Over the years, the Bonifay Kiwanis Club and countless volunteers have been providing the driving force behind what is considered one of the best professional rodeos in Northwest Florida. Because the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo is a PRCA sanctioned Ram Rodeo Series, some of the best rodeo contestants attend in hopes of scoring a few more points toward the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo that is held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. In fact, for some of the cowboys and cowgirls the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo is their last chance to get points before heading to the Southeast Circuit Finals in Brighton. Spectators watch these top rodeo contestants compete for thousands of dollars in seven rodeo events: Bareback Riding, Tie-Down Roping, Saddle Bronc Riding, Team Roping, Steer Wrestling, Barrel Racing, and Bull Riding. Included in the three-day rodeo performances are world famous specialty acts, a huge two day rodeo parade, and much more. No wonder that the readers of Florida Monthly magazine selected the Bonifay Rodeo as the Best Rodeo during their ninth annual Best of Florida Award which was held in 2004.

CECILIA SPEARS | Extra AMAIZE -ING FALL FUN Hammack Farms seasonal attraction opens Saturday By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Ryan and Aimee Hammack are no strangers to the area, but the couple was still surprised at the level of response theyve received on the hometown attraction recently built on their farm. The Hammacks have designed a fall venue for area residents to enjoy, complete with a life-size corn maze, on their farm in Holmes County. We have 11 schools already booked for the month of October, Ryan said. We didnt know how big the response would be. We wanted to build something like this, and we didnt even know there was a demand for it until we discussed it with the Holmes County Tourist Development Council. It started with a corn maze and grew. Now there will be a super slide, train ride, hay ride, corn box, petting zoo, playground area, pumpkin painting, mini hay maze and more. We started talking about it four years ago and thought it was a neat idea, so we found the right place, and we had the time, Ryan said. Shep Eubanks with the Holmes County Extension Agency helped with what type of corn to grow, and my wife is a Facebook guru, so she got the word out. The attraction will be open for a seven-week season, and the corn maze will look different every week so visitors can enjoy it for the rst time over and over again. Inside the maze is also a Facebook logo where visitors can have an aerial group photo made to share with family and friends. Each new weekly feature will be announced on the farms Facebook page, where they will also hosts contests and give prizes, such as a family pass to the farm. We want to make it as family-friendly and affordable as possible, Ryan said. Admission covers all of the activities inside, with adults being $8, between the ages of 2 and 10 being $5 and under 2 years of age being free. I want this to be a tradition for families to come to each year and be worth their time and money. Concessions will also be available, and a convenience store will be open to purchase apple, pumpkin and other products.

Oh the days dwindle downto a precious few September November September Song as recorded by Willie Nelson Pennsylvania has Punxsutawney Phil; Florida has singing katydids. Last week a wonderfully entertaining article in the Sebring News (central Florida) described a variety of signs that we are facing an early, cold and wet winter. A primary source is the Farmers Almanac. Mainly, though, folks around Sebring are observing natures prewinter activities. One Sebring native says that katydids are singing, and this traditionally means that winters rst frost is only six weeks away. Thick tails and bright bands on raccoons and thick hair on the nape of cows necks represent more signs that cold weather is coming. Crickets populating the replace hearth earlier than usual is another harbinger. Some Sebring natives say that considerably cooler weather is imminent when spiders spin webs that are larger than normal and nd their way inside peoples homes. Finally, squirrels are already burying acorns for the winter. Pretty unscientic, huh? But Ill be shocked if our central Florida friends are incorrect. Animals, insects and birds can sense the earths changing seasons. Anyone who has witnessed the movements of natures creatures just before a hurricane arrives has likely marveled at their prescient qualities. By the way, January is likely to be our coldest month this winter. Wouldnt it be wonderful if certain events tipped us off to similar coming market changes? As my father used to say, Would that it were. Lagging and coincident indicators only provide backward and sideward glances. For instance, a look at current corporate prots (a lagging indicator) tells us nothing about the future, because these numbers represent past performance. Leading economic indicators may provide some front windshield views, but economists differ on how these factors should be interpreted. Many items are considered leading economic indicators by the Conference Board, including 10 that comprise the Composite Index: average weekly hours (manufacturing); average weekly jobless claims for unemployment insurance; manufacturers new orders for consumer goods; vendor performance; manufacturers new orders for non-defense capital goods; building permits for new private housing units; the S&P stock index; money supply; the interest rate spread and the index of consumer expectations. Synthesizing and applying this information, once its assembled, is a neat trick, especially when individual leading economic indicators provide conicting data. Whats an investor or advisor to discern, for instance, when manufacturers new orders for consumer goods and capital goods are up, but when consumer expectations and vendor performance are down? Various aspects of the economy may be performing at different levels. Which is why all the securities and sectors of a well-designed portfolio do not rise or fall in concert simultaneously. In other words, the Bronx is up, but the Batterys down. Margaret R.

Special to Extra The Chipola College Presidents Ensemble provided the entertainment for the Chipley Kiwanis Clubs annual Dinner Theatre Thursday, Sept. 18. Under the direction of Dale Heidebrecht, the students performed several contemporary and nostalgic love medleys for the themed event, In the Name of Love. The Presidents Ensemble is a newly formed ensemble of select music majors, including both instrumental and vocal students. Membership is by audition only. The Chipley Kiwanis Club hosts the Dinner Theatre each year as a fundraiser for their scholarship funding and sponsorship of numerous youth activities, including Project Graduation, organized youth athletic teams, Head Start Program, K-Kids, Builders Club, Key Club and others. Business SPOTLIGHT Special to Extra Chipola College and Career Source Chipola recently hosted a Rural Sub-Committee meeting of the Northwest Florida Manufactur ing Councils Manufacturing Acad emy Task Force. The sub-com mittee is focused on developing a manufacturing academy approach uniquely serving Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington counties. Career Source Chipola Execu tive Director Richard Williams set up the meeting to create a dialogue between educators and manufac turers. A panel of representatives from area manufacturers dis cussed their workforce skill/knowl edge needs. A second part of the meeting focused on education and training solutions including the possible im plementation of training sanctioned by The National Center for Con struction Education and Research (NCCER) in area high schools and post-secondary institutions. The meeting concluded with a Table Talk with Educators in which each school district and educational institution discussed their educational programs with manufacturers. It is important to bring educa tion and industry together to be sure that students are learning the skills needed to enter the work force, Darwin Gilmore, Chipola College Dean of Workforce and Economic Development, said. Special to Extra Velma Bernice Peacock celebrated her birthday Monday, Sept. 22. She is believed to be the last known charter member of the Daughters of The Confederacy in Florida and one of the last in the United States. She is the daughter of Jonce A. Forehand and Sarah Forehand. Her father served in the Civil War, and her late husband, Burl Peacock, served in WWII. Peacock was born and raised in the Holmes County community of Bethlehem. She along with her husband moved to Chipley in 1988 to be closer to her son, the late Nolan Barbee, and her two grandchildren, Jeff Barbee (Tracy) and Sheila Barbee. She is also a great-grandmother to Trey Barbee, Taylor Barbee and Charlie McAdams (Danielle) and a greatgreat-grandmother to Peney and Ava McAdams. Family members say if you catch Peacock in a feisty mood, she might play you a favorite Baptist hymn or two on her harmonica. Special to Extra The Pine Log Community will host a benet for teacher, Mark Bryan. Bryan, Saturday, Oct. 11, who teaches at Bethlehem High School and is a life-long resident of Holmes County, was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. After being sent to Duke University for surgery, Bryan is now tumor free. The medical staff was able to remove the tumor in its entirety as the MRI scans came back clean. Bryan will soon go to Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., to receive further treatments. The benet to help with the medical costs is from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11, at the Pine Log Volunteer Fire Department.

Crossword PUZZLE SOLUTION ON PAGE B5 COMMUNITY CALENDAR By DANIEL CARNLEY AND DYLAN JUSTICE Special to Extra Homecoming at Bethlehem Middle School was a success this year thanks to Lisa Purvee, the advisor of Student Government Association. SGA President, Dylan Justice, along with SGA Vice President, Chase Rogers, announced the attendants as well as the Prince and Princess. The event was held on Thursday, Sept. 25. The sixth grade attendants were of Casey French and Kara Justice. The seventh grade attendants were Cade Mollet and Jacee Ward and Willie Beall and Madison Curry. The Prince nominees were eighth graders Jason Evans, Seth Johnson, and Justin Price. The Princess nominees were eighth graders Haley Mitchell, Madison Jones, and Ivy Tindell. The dazzling event kept everyone on the edge of their seats waiting for the homecoming Prince and Princess to be announced. The crowd went wild with applause and cheers as Jason Evans was announced at the 2014 Homecoming Prince and Haley Mitchell was announced 2014 Homecoming Princess. The 2013 Homecoming Prince and Princess, Dillon Lee and Eliza Kriser were in attendance to pass on their crowns and titles to the newly named royalty. The event played out fantastically and fueled the spirit of the student, faculty and fans for the middle school girls basketball game that followed immediately after. Special to Extra Although you might have heard of 4-H, do you know for what each of the Hs stand? Do you know what they mean to a 4-H member? Head, Heart, Hands and Health are the four Hs that are developed through youth participation in 4-H. Service learning is the heart of 4-H where youth participate in community service, connect to their community and learn to give back to others. Although community can be dened as the immediate area where you live, 4-H members learn they live in a global community and develop awareness of others situations and compassion for others. Washington County 4-H members were called to action recently when wildres destroyed the homes of 60 4-H members in a small California town where the local school also suffered damage. The Northwest Extension District, reaching from Escambia to Jefferson counties, was asked to round up school supplies for their fellow 4-Hers. The school supplies will be packed into 60 backpacks donated by the Florida 4-H Camping program. Three of Washington Countys 4-H Clubs Fire Ants 4-H Club, Livestock 4-H Club and Sure Shots 4-H Club donated $140 to purchase supplies. Six full bags of school supplies were also dropped off anonymously at the UF/IFAS Extension ofce by people who heard the call to help from the Washington County 4-H Facebook page. In addition, one 4H volunteer arranged the donation of more than 40 three-ring-binders from his work place. 4-H is a place for youth to put service to others in practice and develop life skills that are valuable now and well into their futures. For more information on how 4-H positively impacts the life of youth, contact 4-H Agent Julie P. Dillard at juliepd@u.edu or 638-6180. GOT SCHOOL NEWS?
