Lawrence Cloud ran for mayor unopposed, as did Micah McCormick for Seat 4. There were four candidates in running for Seat 2, which were Ray Brooks, JoAnn Foxworth, Andrew Granger, Jr. and Larry White. Being a city of cial is more than a marathon, its a relay race and it was time to pass the torch, said Cloud. I appreciate the con dence the City of Bonifay has in me and Ill do my best not to let them down, and thats a promise. Ray Brooks came away with 42 votes, JoAnn Foxworth had 45 votes, Andrew Granger, Jr. had 62 votes and Larry White had 61 votes. Its an honor, said Granger, Jr. I appreciate all the hard work, cooperation and support everyone has shown me and I will do my best to serve them well. McCormick was approved of as Vice Mayor. City grant writer Bob Jones advised that the State of Florida was requiring the city to have an American Disability Association/Fair Housing Representative and approved of his recommendation of assigning that position to City Clerk Geri Gibson. The Council also approved of his recommendation to establish a website for the City of Bonifay to list her as the ADA/FH Representative for Bonifay, as well as other information about the city. The Bonifay Police Department volunteered their technologically savvy staff member that started their website for the task and the only cost would be what it takes to establish and maintain a domain, which is estimated to cost no more than $100 per month. Jerry Smith, owner of a trailer park off of County Road 177A, was asking for help from the city for the road.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 4, 2012 Memorial Hospital agreeing to pay $450, Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce agreeing to pay $450, Bonifay Police Department to pay $225, City of Bonifay to pay $450 and the 911 Of ce to pay $450. Now theyre seeking for the Board to approve to pay the remaining portion of $450 a year. If we do decide to move forward, well need to designate someone to send out these alerts about bad weather, disasters, bridges out, if we want to notify people within a certain area, said Commissioner Ron Monk. Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked Valiejos what data would be used to send out these alerts. If it is an emergency we can use the 911 database to send out the alerts, but for other notications wed have to use the utilities database and a community outreach for information from all those who wish to utilize these services, said Valiejos. The newspaper has been gracious to post our Public Service Announcements, but theres naturally a delay and we have to put up iers for things like Rabies Alerts. If someone gets these alerts at 2 a.m. and they dont want to receive them any more they can just press seven and opt out of the service. Commissioner Jim King said the Board should have more time to review the materials before making a decision. Its limited to 20,000 minutes and we dont know if thats just being charged for one two-minute message sent out to 9,000 people or if thats a twominute message charged 9,000 times, which will eat up those minutes quickly, said Commissioner Monty Merchant. And we dont know if we go into this if wed end up stuck with a service we nd we dont need for several years. Valiejos said they could upgrade to unlimited for $6,500, but as of the moment they dont know if theyll need that much. Well do our research and then well get back with you at the next meeting, said Chairman Ron Monk. Diane Little from the Holmes County Health Department came before the Board to inform then that a faith-based free health clinic was going to be opened from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays at the old Lottie Moon house in Bonifay on Waukesha Street. Its for those who have no health insurance and the staff is strictly made of volunteers, with six medical professionals already on board, said Little. Were already state certi ed and this is additional care on a day that everythings closed and a way to lessen the load at the emergency room. Little added there will be no drugs on the primacies and there will be no prescriptions made. The free clinic will be holding their Grand Opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 5 at the old Lottie Moon house on Waukesha Street. Holly Holt with the Holmes County Health Department also announced their free services being provided on April 2 8 for National Public Health Week, which they will be stationed at various locations to provide free screening for cholesterol, blood pressure, glucosesugar and glaucoma. They will be at the New Hope Fire Station from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, April 2; Tuesday, April 3 at the Ponce de Leon Town Hall; Wednesday, April 4 at the Doctors Memorial Hospital and Piggly Wiggly in Bonifay; Thursday, April 5 at the Esto Town Hall; and Friday at the Hamilton Grocery Store in Poplar Springs. Valiejos also announced they would be holding a one-year anniversary since they started their extended hours at the HCHD, which will be held at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 2 at the health department. Holt also informed them her interim with the county will be over on April 13 and she will be replaced with Washington Countys Rick Davis, who will be at the next Board meeting to introduce himself. Hate to see you leave, I hope you do good wherever you go, said Commissioner Jim King. Jimmy Martin, a resident of Dogwood Lakes, asked about the Dogwood Lakes Estates being sprayed. I pay about $20 and I dont know where the money goes or whos handling it, said Martin. Williams informed Martin that the county gets paid in a lump sum of $800 to go out and spray that area, but they dont get paid by individuals, so someone within the community has been handling gathering the money from the residents and paying the county to spray. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said that he would look further into the matter. Well nd out whos gathering the money, whos claiming responsibility for the payment and bring it up at the next meeting, said Goodman. The Board approved to look into getting a spray unit to attach to an existing county truck so that they can start making efforts to spray more areas. Weve got plenty of mosquitoes to be sprayed this year, said Monk. This will be a good investment. County Engineer Cliff Knauer said that it was time for the county to submit two of their worst county roads for the Department of Transportations Small County Outreach Program and they needed to do so before May 4. The Board agreed with Williams proposal that each of the commissioners come back with two roads they think are the worst, have the engineer ride the roads and then return with the two that seem the worst to the engineers. That way its the engineer saying which roads are the worst and which ones are most likely to be nanced through this DOT program, said Williams. Knauer also said that CW Roberts is bringing asphalt to the section of County Road 181 that is in desperate need of repaving. The Board approved of a density testing as they continued to repair the road. The Board approved of Commissioner Phillip Musics request to advertise and ll two positions in District 3, which were recently vacated for various reasons. The Board also approved of Williams request to buy $660 worth of thermal strips to create rumble strips for the intersection of County Road 160 and 173. We need a resolution written saying were against the septic tank bill, said King. Goodman said Drake would be visiting the Board to talk with them about the progress of the bill and that action should be taken from there. Drake is about to be out of of ce soon, said Merchant. Were seeing about Representative Marti Coley becoming our new representative. Shes wanting to meet the Board. Merchant also asked why it was so hard to get inmates out to the districts. We were told we could get at least three groups of inmates every day and we cant even get one, I want to know whats up with that, said Merchant. The Board was informed it might be the new warden at the Holmes County Correctional Institute and the Board agreed to write the new warden to request use of the inmates. Monk also informed everyone the bridge on Mt. Olive Road recently was reinforced. Its one less bridge for us to worry about, said Monk. DELTALERT from page A1 Celebrating the Resurrection!

However it still comes down to the fact that its a private road and if we helped you with your private road well have to help them all. Bonifay Police Chief Chris Wells presented the dilemma that 9-1-1 dis patch was nding with re ceiving new state-of-the-art equipment and not having enough room in the build ing theyre in presently. We were in negotia tions with the Emergency Operations Center and it would be costly to move all of the 9-1-1 dispatch over there but it may be possible to move Holmes County 911 Director Clint Erickson over there and make more room, said Wells. The Council agreed that they should get on the agenda for the next Holm es County Board of County Commissioners meeting af ter theyve conrmed that Erickson would be willing to move to the EOC. Gibson brought up a re quest from the Girl Scouts to use the Holmes County Recreational Center once a week for meetings since there isnt one near by to meet at. Woodham said that there would have to be ar rangements made because at the moment the Cowboy Church was monopolizing the space. The Council approved of the Holmes County Health Department hosting free Zumba classes from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Tuesday night at the Rec Center. The Health Depart ment is working to increase physical activity opportu nities within the county, wrote Community Health Coordinator Traci Corbin. We currently pay an in structor to teach weekly Zumba classes that are free to the community and provide an hour of physi cal activity. In the past the classes have been housed at the Bonifay Elementary School, but due to the large community response, we need a larger location. Once again Woodham pointed out that this is an other reason for them to have a representative from Cowboy Church to attend a meeting, because theyve got equipment set up in the main room of the Rec Center and the only room is locked. The Council approved of sending a request that the founder and pastor of the Cowboy Church Jerrod Jenkins be present at the next meeting. Granger, Jr. asked what Cowboy Church was and Woodham explained it to be church created by a lo cal man in connection with Bull Jam and was teenaged based. Its a real good thing for the kids, said Wood ham. They just offered to pay $250 a month for using the Rec Center and they havent paid in the last few month, which is another reason why itd be a good idea for Jenkins to come to the next council meeting. Council member Roger Brooks said that hes been receiving multiple com plaints about campaign signs littering various ar eas and being eyesores. City Attorney Lucas Taylor said that he would look into what can be done about limiting them, restricting them in certain areas, etc. C ECI L IA SP EARS | Times-Advertiser Bonifay City Attorney Lucas Taylor, at left, swears in new mayor Lawrence Cloud, and new council members Micah McCormick and Andrew Granger Jr.

Call 638-0212. Wednesday, April 4, 2012 People who come by to buy blueberries or people that we meet here and there often have blueberry questions to ask us. The number one question is, How do you keep the birds from eating the berries? That one is pretty easy to answer. I tell them like my dad used to tell people who asked the same question about the huge gardens he planted for the market. Whether the question was about bugs or birds, Daddy would answer, I plant enough for me and the bugs. That is pretty much the answer we give about the birds and the blueberries: We have enough for us and the birds. The next question is, I have a few trees, but they just stand there and wont grow. What kind of fertilizer do you use? Then we ask the question, Have you had your soil tested? Blueberries need an acid soil with a pH between 4 and 5. If it is much higher than that, the plants just stand there. As many times as I have asked people if they had their soil tested, I had never taken a soil sample. My husband taught students to do that, and he did it for the blueberry acreage, but my growing experience is con ned to the yard. For several years we have had a satsuma tree on the south side of our house, which should be the ideal location, but it has never thrived. This spring, however, it is loaded with blooms even though the foliage looks sickly. I consulted with Matthew Orwalt the extension horticulturalist at the Washington County Agricultural Extension Of ce. He asked me the question I have asked so many times, Have you had a soil test? Well, I decided to act and not wait on the expert nor read any instructions. I grabbed my bulb planter, which digs a hole 4 or 5 inches deep and forced it an inch lower to reach the 6-inch depth that Matthew had told me. I pulled up the round and popped it into one of the little paper soil-test bags provided by the extension agents of ce. I thought I just had to carry it to the extension of ce and theyd handle the rest, and that might have been the way it used to be. Not anymore. Our youngest son Glen has decided to help us with the blueberry production and perhaps expand it into a produce marketing operation. My advice was to plant sweet corn. So now we are looking at analyzing more soil than just one satsuma tree. So Jack the teacher showed me how you are actually supposed to take soil samples. It occurred to me that some of you might need that information. For the area which Glen has cultivated, about 1/3 acre, the teacher went out with a shovel and dug straight down to a depth of 6 inches. Then he took a thin slice of dirt from that hole an put it into a clean bucket. He repeated the process over about 10 places in the eld. He spread the dirt on a clean newspaper to dry. Next, using a clean spoon, he mixed the soil from all his samples and poured it into one of the bags from the extension of ce to the proper ll line. It is important not to allow your hands to touch the soil. While he was doing that, I poured my satsuma tree soil out to make sure it was dry, and mixed it as he had done. Then I poured it into a clean sample bag. In the meantime, Jack had gone to the extension of ce to pick up a mailer box and a sheet of instructions with the fee schedule for the analyses. We placed all the samples in the box and mailed it to The University of Florida. No longer is this a free service, but for under $30 including postage, we will have an analysis and recommendation for the corn patch, the muscadine vineyard, and the satsuma tree. Now, Ill wait to see what we need to do to produce satsumas, my very favorite citrus, after I spray the tree with insecticidal soap to get rid of sooty mold caused by white y infestation. Well also look forward to a crop of sweet corn and maybe some other things like cantaloupes, if we can decide if there is a pre-emergent chemical safe to use to control weeds and grass. If not, somebody will be wielding the trusty hoe which I and my siblings and my husband and his siblings had plenty of experience with when we were growing up. Speaking of soils, we learned after I had concluded this article that our daughter, Cindy Webbs, Charlotte High FFA Land Judging team had won rst place in the state contest in Ocala on Friday. Look for an announcement later from Bethlehem Jr. FFA Chapter about the results of their participation in the State Land Judging contest. NOTE: Week before last, I had the privilege of seeing Ray Reynolds, a Holmes County favorite son now living in California. He asked me to include my email address in my column as he often wants to comment on something in the Happy Corner. I welcome Rays and all comments and suggestions for future articles. The email address is jetison@embarqmail.com. Hitting students at school costs brain functionality Dear Editor, I would like to make some comments on last weeks article about the beatings our students get in our school system (NPR comments on spanking in schools, March 28 Page A4). I too heard the NPR broadcast and was appalled that they zeroed in on Holmes County. Seems that our schools have nally got bad enough to attract national attention. A little over a decade ago, scientists who were researching the effect these beatings have on children discovered that they caused a physical brain damage so severe that it could be seen with an MRI brain scan, it was severe, and it was permanent, caused by abuse and terror. Our military now recognizes this brain damage in adult soldiers and calls it post traumatic stress disorder, now commonly referred to as PTSD, caused by the terror of battle. My own memories of this when I was in school tend to verify this. In my second grade, at least half of our class was beaten every day. Out of a class of 64, we graduated 16, and I feel sure these daily beatings had a great effect on this statistic. Beatings do tend to quell childrens activities, and it is not from learning their lesson they have been turned into zombies, or conservatives in our everyday language, peaceful, unintrusive, obedient, unambitious and compliant because they have lost the ability to be any of the rambunctious things that they were before the beatings, with a brain that has lost much of its functionality and ability for independent and original thought. Coincidentally (or not), this does seem to parallel our countys economic and social fortunes. Perhaps we should look at the way we treat our children to see why we are so backwards here. I was fortunate that my parents made the effort necessary to protect me from the beatings my fellow students were getting in school. They never beat me nor allowed anyone else to, and I bene ted greatly from it all of my life. Charles W. Smith Bonifay LETTER TO THE EDITOR Safety measures cant come too soon If you happened to read my column last week, you heard about the ice storm of 2010 that shut down most of northwest Arkansas for a couple of weeks. I have since been told by Floridians that, minus the ice and freezing temperatures, I had pretty much described a hurricane. And I imagine one bad storm is pretty much the same as the other, unless youre talking about tornadoes or tsunamis. And again as I am writing, there is a tornado warning in the news. Today its a warning for Bay County. Thankfully nothing has come of it. I have had some close encounters with tornadoes though, so that brings us to this weeks topic. You might remember, what got me on the weather kick was Holmes County of cials and their effort to adopt the DeltAlert electronic warning system. The DeltAlert coalition went to the Board of County Commissioners last Tuesday, and the commissioners wanted more information before committing to helping purchase the warning system. Back in that alternate universe Washington County I used to live in, the city of Prairie Grove looked into a similar warning system, one which sends out emails, texts and phone calls to warn of bad weather, after they determined that replacing the citys tornado warning sirens was going to cost a lot of money, and that even with the best sirens, anyone who didnt live immediately around the sirens most likely would never hear them. Sirens werent really designed to be heard inside houses, especially well-insulated houses. Add your TV, stereo or mp3 player complete with headphones, and you probably arent going to know the sirens going off. To avoid spending money on a system most people either wouldnt hear, the city interviewed and ultimately bought into the CodeRed system. Within a few months, both surrounding towns, Farmington, Ark., and Lincoln, Ark., also were shopping for the system. This was all in 2010. At the end of 2010, the city council of Lincoln had also bought into the system and was in the process of setting up the database for notifying residents of severe weather. The on Jan. 1, 2011, it happened. Just before dawn on New Years Day, a EF-3 tornado struck the small community of Cincinnati, Ark., and killed four people. Cincinnati is about 10 miles west of Lincoln. Several homes and the towns re department were destroyed. Several letters and photographs from Cincinnati were found in Benton County, 35 miles away, in the cow pasture of my friend Kent Marts. The storms also hit Benton County and were part of a 27-hour tornado outbreak that killed 9 and spawned 36 con rmed tornadoes in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Louisiana and Mississippi. Cincinnati had no sirens, and there was very little warning for the small community. Just weeks earlier, the city of Lincoln had been discussing putting Cincinnati in their CodeRed program. Then the tornado struck. As bad as Cincinnatis disaster, however, the EF-5 multiple vortex tornado that destroyed Joplin, Mo., on May 22, 2011, made Cincinnatis carnage pale in comparison. That Sunday the same storm system came through Tulsa, Okla., en route to destroying Joplin. Shannon and I were in Akins Natural Foods at 31st and Harvard when the clerk came up to us and said there were tornadoes on the ground in west Tulsa and we should go home immediately and seek shelter. Since we were about 100 miles from home, we decided to run back to the hills. Listening to the radio as we drove east down U.S. 412, we heard the weather reports as funnel clouds traveled over south Harvard Avenue where we had just been 20 minutes earlier. While we hightailed it due east, the storm took a slight turn northeast. Much of Joplin was destroyed, and 160 people died in that storm. Damage was estimated at $2.8 billion. Spencer Tirey, the photo editor for Northwest Arkansas Newspapers, was in Joplin that evening visiting his girlfriend who lived there. Her home, just outside of town, was unmolested, but when they heard the reports of damage, they went back into the city to help. Spencer wound up spending the night helping pull bodies from rubble, and he wrote a harrowing essay about his experiences. He had driven down one of the main roads of the city with the storm literally in his rearview mirror, but he hadnt recognized it for what it was a tornado so massive the sides of it couldnt be seen. The path of the storm was a mile wide in some parts. Whats the point? In Farmington, Ark., they had implemented the CodeRed program by the time the tornado struck Cincinnati. The CodeRed emergency noti cation system sent out more than 1,000 calls starting at 5:56 a.m. Friday to alert Farmington and Prairie Grove residents that they were in the path of a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service out of Tulsa, Okla, we reported in the Washington County Enterprise-Leader the Wednesday following the weekend tornado. This was the rst major storm since both communities signed on with the communication system. Jill Mason, Arkansas account representative for Code Red, said residents registered with the weather system receive calls only if they are located within the direct path of a storm or live within a polygon that shows the potential direction of the storm. Would CodeRed have saved lives in Cincinnati, or Joplin, if it had been available? Well never know. But I do know of some city of cials in Lincoln who wish they could have gotten the system in place just a little bit quicker.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com Hook harvest SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM This is the rst deer killed by 15-year-old Jacob Burnham. He was killed at 5:15 p.m. Feb. 1 on private property while hunting with his grandfather, Daniel Smith. Beginning today, there will be grouper on the spit for shermen in the Gulf waters of Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin counties. The state has come to an agreement with these counties for an early grouper season for 2012 only. The regional season will end June 30. The season also includes all the waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all the waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters (from shore to nine miles out) off these four counties may not be brought ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. Overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties, because it is the least densely populated region of the Floridas Gulf Coast. Providing this spring season will balance the economic and social needs of this region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In Gulf of Mexico federal waters (beyond 9 miles) and in the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Oct. 31. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not be open during the July-throughOctober season, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits remain at 22 inches and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

COOL CATS Craigcat: A small boat with big potential By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Theres a new ride in the area. It has pontoons and a motor, but its not a pontoon boat. Its a Craigcat. The 11-foot-long two-seater boat can scoot across the water at 40 mph. But the biggest advantage of the small boat is the safety factor, said Capt. Bill McDonald of the Mindy Lou II. McDonald, who has been chartering for 35 years, is stepping out into the Craigcat venture along with wife Sheri, and children Sarah Hoffman and Thomas McDonald. The boats are for rent under A-1 Charters and they can also be purchased. They have the best safety record for any small water craft, Bill said. Theyre unsinkable with the stick steering, Sheri said. You cant really give it enough throttle to ip it. In addition to being very safe, they have the best environmental record, Bill said. Environmentally it leaves no footprint. When the boat is running on top, it leaves no wake. The boats have 4-stroke motors and are energy-ef cient. You dont have exhaust to deal with, Sheri said. Theyre awesome and very light weight. The heaviest thing about them is the motor. With the motor, the boat weighs 550 pounds and can carry two passengers along with a small cooler and whatever else you might like to take along within the 600-pound limit. They are considered a power boat or a personal watercraft, Sarah said. The boat takes six gallons of gas and should be good for eight hours of fun on the water. The rst time I went out on it, it was a little intimidating, Sarah said. I felt like I was in a mini-pontoon boat. But Ive had a blast every time Ive gone out. All Craigcats have a dry storage area behind the seats, and an area up front to put a cooler or tackle box. They all have a radio and MP3 music capability and small Bimini tops to get out from under the sun. Each boat has a splashguard across the front. Its very user friendly, Sheri said. The McDonalds and A-1 Charters have the dealership for all of Northwest Florida for Craigcats. Right now they have six for rent and hope to soon have a eet of 10. However, if someone would like to buy one, We can always have one in about a week and you can customize them, Sheri said, such as changing the color of the Bimini or out tting it for shing. To catch a ride on a Craigcat, call 837-1790. Photos by MARGUERITE PARKER | Special to Florida Freedom Newspapers Capt. Bill McDonald helps his wife Sheri and Marguerite Parker off the boat after a test ride Thursday morning. At top, Thomas McDonald has one of the catch-it Craigcats out tted for shing, complete with rocket launchers for rods, trolling motor and wings for his buckets or tackle box. Sheri McDonald and friend Marguerite Parker take one of the Craigcats out for a ride. The small boats can be rented by the hour, half-day or day at A-1 Charters behind the old Electric Cowboy on U.S. 98 in Destin.

H O SPITALITY S P O NS O R By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Was Ryan Newman lucky or was he lucky at Martinsville? Well, he pulled off his rst win of the season and his rst ever win at Martinsville after Jeff Gordon ran out of gas and Jimmie Johnson was involved in an accident with Clint Bowyer in turn one. Gordon led the most laps at Martinsville, but Newman took advantage of Gordon running out of gas and in the frontstretch inched out ahead of A.J. Allmendinger for the win. David Reutimann had a bad day. What do they say, if it can go wrong it will? Well it did for Reutimann, and what ended his day on the track wasnt some horri c accident or someone spinning him out by getting a little to close his car simply stalled on the track. The accident that took out Jimmie Johnson happened when Bowyer barreled in to turn one and caught Johnsons bumper, sending Johnson into a spin and leaving him unable to nish the race. Kevin Harvick took the win in the Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville. Harvick had a real good day. Not only did he lead all the laps except for two, he also started in the pole position. Harvick now holds a series record after leading 248 laps. This was also Harvicks third win in the last four years. With Harvick winning the Kroger 500, the win also was the rst win for team owner Richard Childress. There were only seven cautions in the Sprint Cup race. Caution one came on lap 97 when Kyle Busch spun out between turns three and four. Caution two came when Dave Blaney was involved in an accident in turn two. Juan Montoya spun out in lap 263 for the third caution. The fourth caution came when Kasey Kahne blew his engine on the backstretch. On lap 361, Travis Kvapil spun out in turn two for the fth caution of the race. The sixth caution came on lap 496 when Reutimanns car stalled on the track. The seventh and most exciting caution of the race was when Bowyer barreled into turn one and clipped Jimmie Johnson, which sent Johnson into a spin. There are no races scheduled for this weekend because of the Easter holiday. Results from Martinsville Goodys Fast Relief 500 (Sprint Cup) 1. Ryan Newman 2. A. J. Allmendinger 3.

Mayor honored with retirement party Soldier laid to rest Family, friends say farewell By RANDAL YAKEY 522-5108 | @ryakey ryakey@pcnh.com MARIANNA A soft rain pelted the tent under which the family of U.S. Army Specialist Daquane Demetrius Rivers gathered at a cemetery to say their nal goodbyes on Saturday. After a 21-gun salute and taps were played, U.S. Army pallbearers presented American ags to Rivers wife, Natalie Rivers, and his mother, Barbara Ann Rivers, while mourners gathered around the family. A trains horn sounded off across a grove of trees inside the Orange Hill Cemetery as nal prayers were said. Spc. Rivers, 21, died in a noncombat incident March 14 in Paktika province of Afghanistan, according to the Department of Defense. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 172nd Infantry Brigade, Grafenwoehr, Germany, and was in Afghanistan supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, according to the Department of Defense. Earlier Saturday, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. James Thomas spoke to a couple of hundred mourners at the Marianna High School auditorium. Specialist Rivers signed up knowing we were in a long war against terrorists, Thomas told the gathering. Specialist Rivers stood between the extremists and the possibility of freedom for Afghanistan. He stared down the Taliban. At one point in the ceremony, presiding minister Janet Jackson read a statement prepared by Rivers mother. He had a way of winning you over, Jackson said from the podium. He was charming. He was courteous, he was respectful. He was just a joy. He was a great leader, a loving husband and an awesome friend. As Jackson read the statement, ushers passed out tissues for mourners shedding tears. He will forever stay in our minds and hearts, Jackson read. He will be truly missed especially by me, Mom. Outside the auditorium, Angie McNealy, a cousin of Rivers from his father, Reginald McNealys, side of the family, spoke glowingly of Rivers. He was a fun person, McNealy said. Hed make you laugh if you were going through anything. He knew all the right things to say and do. The Rev. Rueben Merritt said he watched Rivers grow up playing in the neighborhood near his grandmothers house. He was always joyful and laughing with a beautiful smile, Merritt said. Whenever you had seen him, you had seen joy. After the ceremony at the auditorium, Wilburn Jones, 22, walked slowly out of the auditorium past the line of military personnel. He was a classmate of Rivers. He was very kindly, kind-hearted, said Jones, his eyes xated someplace else. He was a good friend. Jones turned and walked away, disappearing into the crowd headed for the cemetery. Back at the gravesite, mother and wife sat quietly, weeping, as the graveside ceremony came to a close. A few mourners walked past the soldiers silver casket, touching the top where a single red carnation was laid. ANDREW P.

Little Blessings Academy takes trip Chipley High school: Disney for Disney SPECIAL TO EXTRA Children from the Little Blessings Academy visited Partners for Pets on March 28 in Marianna. Nail-biting, gum smacking, knuckle popping they can be irritating habits people have. Even birds display their share of odd behaviors. Feather plucking is a common habit among parrot-type birds, says Dr. Alice Blue-McLendon, a veterinarian with the Winnie Carter Wildlife Center at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. While most adult birds lose their feathers naturally once or twice a year in a process called molting, it is not natural for a bird to pluck out its own feathers, says Blue-McLendon. One of the clues that a bird is plucking its feathers is to look at the birds head. Since a parrot cannot pluck feathers from its own scalp, a feather-plucking bird will have a full head of feathers but be missing a lot of feathers on other parts of its body. As simple as it may sound, the most common reason for a bird to pluck out its own feathers is boredom, says Blue-McLendon. When a bird isnt stimulated by its environment, it may begin plucking its feathers for entertainment or out of frustration, she says. Because of birds high intelligence level, environmental enrichment is extremely important for them, Blue-McLendon notes. They need plenty of toys to play with, especially ones they can chew. The more time they spend chewing on toys and food, the less time they have to chew on their feathers, she adds. Playing with loose feathers may spawn a nasty plucking habit. You dont want to encourage your bird to pluck its feathers out to have something to play with, Blue-McLendon says. Remove the feathers from the cage as soon as they fall out. Excessive grooming, or preening as it is known in the avian arena, is also not an appropriate pastime for birds. You should curb this behavior early, says Blue-McLendon. Preening can be another common precursor to feather plucking. She says its important to try to break any bad habits as soon as you notice them. Temporarily changing your birds environment is a good start, BlueMcLendon explains. Try adding new toys to its cage or simply rearranging its existing toys. Also, consider moving its cage to another area of the house, possibly one with heavier traf c. If your birds meals consist of only seeds, try to incorporate new foods and avors into its diet, says Blue-McLendon. However, know that change is not always the best remedy. Sometimes variation, especially sudden and dramatic variation, in a birds environment can also lead to feather plucking, says Blue-McLendon. Also, before you make any changes, be sure your bird doesnt have a medical reason for plucking its feathers such as mite infestation, a hormone imbalance or skin infection.

This Message Courtesy of Easter Easter is a special Christian holiday commemo rating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There is something special about this holiday that young and old alike seem to enjoy. Easter is one of the more popular holidays in the year, and many Christians throughout the world who may not normally attend a religious service on a regular basis, usu ally try to attend some service on Easter Sunday. Christs resur rection, after His dying on the cross, proved that He was God and Savior to the world. His resurrection assures us that we also share in His victory, and that He is coming again to receive all believ ers unto Himself. Easter baskets, jelly beans, and chocolate eggs are all good and festive ways for us to celebrate this important holiday; however, Christs dying and rising again for our sake is the primary reason for Easter. Our heavenly Father who loves us, gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life. But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was cruci ed. He is not here; for He has risen... R.S.V.

For more information, call 638-2722 Easter BRIEFS Faith EVENTS By The Rev. James L. Snyder Recently, I discovered something. The more I tried to keep up with the latest trend, the further behind I get. I am not a complete technical idiot, but Im not too far off. The only thing I can say about me is that I at least try. The best example of all of this has to do with my cellphone. Is there anybody on the planet today that does not have a cellphone? And, the most important question, is there anybody driving a car that is not at the same time on that cellphone? Who in the world are they all talking to? The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage nally convinced me to go into cahoots with her and get cellphones. The plan was this: She got to pick out the cellphones and I got to pay the bill. Consequently, we now are in the cellphone industry. I am not sure it is all working out for the good. At this point, I cannot tell the difference when my cellphone is ringing or when I am receiving a text message. When a text message comes in I try to answer the cellphone and nobody seems to be on the other end. When I try to read the text message there are only letters instead of words. It takes me a half hour just to gure out one text message. Where is James Bond when you need him? I may not be the brightest letter on the keyboard, but I do know how to spell words. It seems that in order to use a cellphone today you have to throw out words and start using letters. I will never get the hang of that. When somebody is on the phone and I am talking, all of a sudden the phone goes dead. I can talk for 3 minutes before realizing nobody is on the other end. I nd this most frustrating. In a crowded restaurant the other day, my cellphone went off. Not thinking too much of my environment I answered the cellphone. It was a friend calling me. The conversation started rather jovial for all practical purposes. Suddenly I became conscious I had an audience. There are times when I really prefer not to have an audience. This was one of those times. I realized some of the people around me were eavesdropping in on my conversation. Then the unthinkable happened. My cellphone suddenly went dead. It went dead in the middle of a rather humorous joke I was telling. Now what was I to do? For a few seconds I was not sure what the proper protocol is when your phone goes dead and you have an audience. I had to do some very quick thinking and come up with, what I thought was, a brilliant plan. I understand that when you do have an audience you have a certain responsibility with that audience. So, not to disappoint my audience, I continued my conversation on the cellphone as though somebody was actually on the other end. I was able to nish my joke and then I paused, not knowing what else to do. I merely continued the conversation I was having with my friend who really was not on the other end of this time. Sometimes it is good just to keep up a good front. From the snickers of the people around me in that restaurant, it was well worth nishing that joke. I hate to waste a good joke. After all, they are so hard to come by these days. Many things are just too good to be true and many of them I probably will never really get the hang of it. One thing I never really will fully understand is Gods love for me. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). Although this sounds too good to be true, it is true nevertheless. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship. Some things seem too good to be true

Lawrence Cloud ran for mayor unopposed, as did Micah McCormick for Seat 4. There were four candidates in running for Seat 2, which were Ray Brooks, JoAnn Foxworth, Andrew Granger, Jr. and Larry White. Being a city of cial is more than a marathon, its a relay race and it was time to pass the torch, said Cloud. I appreciate the con dence the City of Bonifay has in me and Ill do my best not to let them down, and thats a promise. Ray Brooks came away with 42 votes, JoAnn Foxworth had 45 votes, Andrew Granger, Jr. had 62 votes and Larry White had 61 votes. Its an honor, said Granger, Jr. I appreciate all the hard work, cooperation and support everyone has shown me and I will do my best to serve them well. McCormick was approved of as Vice Mayor. City grant writer Bob Jones advised that the State of Florida was requiring the city to have an American Disability Association/Fair Housing Representative and approved of his recommendation of assigning that position to City Clerk Geri Gibson. The Council also approved of his recommendation to establish a website for the City of Bonifay to list her as the ADA/FH Representative for Bonifay, as well as other information about the city. The Bonifay Police Department volunteered their technologically savvy staff member that started their website for the task and the only cost would be what it takes to establish and maintain a domain, which is estimated to cost no more than $100 per month. Jerry Smith, owner of a trailer park off of County Road 177A, was asking for help from the city for the road.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 4, 2012 Memorial Hospital agreeing to pay $450, Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce agreeing to pay $450, Bonifay Police Department to pay $225, City of Bonifay to pay $450 and the 911 Of ce to pay $450. Now theyre seeking for the Board to approve to pay the remaining portion of $450 a year. If we do decide to move forward, well need to designate someone to send out these alerts about bad weather, disasters, bridges out, if we want to notify people within a certain area, said Commissioner Ron Monk. Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked Valiejos what data would be used to send out these alerts. If it is an emergency we can use the 911 database to send out the alerts, but for other notications wed have to use the utilities database and a community outreach for information from all those who wish to utilize these services, said Valiejos. The newspaper has been gracious to post our Public Service Announcements, but theres naturally a delay and we have to put up iers for things like Rabies Alerts. If someone gets these alerts at 2 a.m. and they dont want to receive them any more they can just press seven and opt out of the service. Commissioner Jim King said the Board should have more time to review the materials before making a decision. Its limited to 20,000 minutes and we dont know if thats just being charged for one two-minute message sent out to 9,000 people or if thats a twominute message charged 9,000 times, which will eat up those minutes quickly, said Commissioner Monty Merchant. And we dont know if we go into this if wed end up stuck with a service we nd we dont need for several years. Valiejos said they could upgrade to unlimited for $6,500, but as of the moment they dont know if theyll need that much. Well do our research and then well get back with you at the next meeting, said Chairman Ron Monk. Diane Little from the Holmes County Health Department came before the Board to inform then that a faith-based free health clinic was going to be opened from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays at the old Lottie Moon house in Bonifay on Waukesha Street. Its for those who have no health insurance and the staff is strictly made of volunteers, with six medical professionals already on board, said Little. Were already state certi ed and this is additional care on a day that everythings closed and a way to lessen the load at the emergency room. Little added there will be no drugs on the primacies and there will be no prescriptions made. The free clinic will be holding their Grand Opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 5 at the old Lottie Moon house on Waukesha Street. Holly Holt with the Holmes County Health Department also announced their free services being provided on April 2 8 for National Public Health Week, which they will be stationed at various locations to provide free screening for cholesterol, blood pressure, glucosesugar and glaucoma. They will be at the New Hope Fire Station from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, April 2; Tuesday, April 3 at the Ponce de Leon Town Hall; Wednesday, April 4 at the Doctors Memorial Hospital and Piggly Wiggly in Bonifay; Thursday, April 5 at the Esto Town Hall; and Friday at the Hamilton Grocery Store in Poplar Springs. Valiejos also announced they would be holding a one-year anniversary since they started their extended hours at the HCHD, which will be held at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 2 at the health department. Holt also informed them her interim with the county will be over on April 13 and she will be replaced with Washington Countys Rick Davis, who will be at the next Board meeting to introduce himself. Hate to see you leave, I hope you do good wherever you go, said Commissioner Jim King. Jimmy Martin, a resident of Dogwood Lakes, asked about the Dogwood Lakes Estates being sprayed. I pay about $20 and I dont know where the money goes or whos handling it, said Martin. Williams informed Martin that the county gets paid in a lump sum of $800 to go out and spray that area, but they dont get paid by individuals, so someone within the community has been handling gathering the money from the residents and paying the county to spray. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said that he would look further into the matter. Well nd out whos gathering the money, whos claiming responsibility for the payment and bring it up at the next meeting, said Goodman. The Board approved to look into getting a spray unit to attach to an existing county truck so that they can start making efforts to spray more areas. Weve got plenty of mosquitoes to be sprayed this year, said Monk. This will be a good investment. County Engineer Cliff Knauer said that it was time for the county to submit two of their worst county roads for the Department of Transportations Small County Outreach Program and they needed to do so before May 4. The Board agreed with Williams proposal that each of the commissioners come back with two roads they think are the worst, have the engineer ride the roads and then return with the two that seem the worst to the engineers. That way its the engineer saying which roads are the worst and which ones are most likely to be nanced through this DOT program, said Williams. Knauer also said that CW Roberts is bringing asphalt to the section of County Road 181 that is in desperate need of repaving. The Board approved of a density testing as they continued to repair the road. The Board approved of Commissioner Phillip Musics request to advertise and ll two positions in District 3, which were recently vacated for various reasons. The Board also approved of Williams request to buy $660 worth of thermal strips to create rumble strips for the intersection of County Road 160 and 173. We need a resolution written saying were against the septic tank bill, said King. Goodman said Drake would be visiting the Board to talk with them about the progress of the bill and that action should be taken from there. Drake is about to be out of of ce soon, said Merchant. Were seeing about Representative Marti Coley becoming our new representative. Shes wanting to meet the Board. Merchant also asked why it was so hard to get inmates out to the districts. We were told we could get at least three groups of inmates every day and we cant even get one, I want to know whats up with that, said Merchant. The Board was informed it might be the new warden at the Holmes County Correctional Institute and the Board agreed to write the new warden to request use of the inmates. Monk also informed everyone the bridge on Mt. Olive Road recently was reinforced. Its one less bridge for us to worry about, said Monk. DELTALERT from page A1 Celebrating the Resurrection!

However it still comes down to the fact that its a private road and if we helped you with your private road well have to help them all. Bonifay Police Chief Chris Wells presented the dilemma that 9-1-1 dispatch was nding with receiving new state-of-the-art equipment and not having enough room in the building theyre in presently. We were in negotiations with the Emergency Operations Center and it would be costly to move all of the 9-1-1 dispatch over there but it may be possible to move Holmes County 911 Director Clint Erickson over there and make more room, said Wells. The Council agreed that they should get on the agenda for the next Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting after theyve conrmed that Erickson would be willing to move to the EOC. Gibson brought up a request from the Girl Scouts to use the Holmes County Recreational Center once a week for meetings since there isnt one near by to meet at. Woodham said that there would have to be arrangements made because at the moment the Cowboy Church was monopolizing the space. The Council approved of the Holmes County Health Department hosting free Zumba classes from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Tuesday night at the Rec Center. The Health Department is working to increase physical activity opportunities within the county, wrote Community Health Coordinator Traci Corbin. We currently pay an instructor to teach weekly Zumba classes that are free to the community and provide an hour of physical activity. In the past the classes have been housed at the Bonifay Elementary School, but due to the large community response, we need a larger location. Once again Woodham pointed out that this is another reason for them to have a representative from Cowboy Church to attend a meeting, because theyve got equipment set up in the main room of the Rec Center and the only room is locked. The Council approved of sending a request that the founder and pastor of the Cowboy Church Jerrod Jenkins be present at the next meeting. Granger, Jr. asked what Cowboy Church was and Woodham explained it to be church created by a local man in connection with Bull Jam and was teenaged based. Its a real good thing for the kids, said Woodham. They just offered to pay $250 a month for using the Rec Center and they havent paid in the last few month, which is another reason why itd be a good idea for Jenkins to come to the next council meeting. Council member Roger Brooks said that hes been receiving multiple complaints about campaign signs littering various areas and being eyesores. City Attorney Lucas Taylor said that he would look into what can be done about limiting them, restricting them in certain areas, etc. Ceci ECI Lia IA SPears EARS | Times-Advertiser Bonifay City Attorney Lucas Taylor, at left, swears in new mayor Lawrence Cloud, and new council members Micah McCormick and Andrew Granger Jr.

Call 638-0212. Wednesday, April 4, 2012People who come by to buy blueberries or people that we meet here and there often have blueberry questions to ask us. The number one question is, How do you keep the birds from eating the berries? That one is pretty easy to answer. I tell them like my dad used to tell people who asked the same question about the huge gardens he planted for the market. Whether the question was about bugs or birds, Daddy would answer, I plant enough for me and the bugs. That is pretty much the answer we give about the birds and the blueberries: We have enough for us and the birds. The next question is, I have a few trees, but they just stand there and wont grow. What kind of fertilizer do you use? Then we ask the question, Have you had your soil tested? Blueberries need an acid soil with a pH between 4 and 5. If it is much higher than that, the plants just stand there. As many times as I have asked people if they had their soil tested, I had never taken a soil sample. My husband taught students to do that, and he did it for the blueberry acreage, but my growing experience is con ned to the yard. For several years we have had a satsuma tree on the south side of our house, which should be the ideal location, but it has never thrived. This spring, however, it is loaded with blooms even though the foliage looks sickly. I consulted with Matthew Orwalt the extension horticulturalist at the Washington County Agricultural Extension Of ce. He asked me the question I have asked so many times, Have you had a soil test? Well, I decided to act and not wait on the expert nor read any instructions. I grabbed my bulb planter, which digs a hole 4 or 5 inches deep and forced it an inch lower to reach the 6-inch depth that Matthew had told me. I pulled up the round and popped it into one of the little paper soil-test bags provided by the extension agents of ce. I thought I just had to carry it to the extension of ce and theyd handle the rest, and that might have been the way it used to be. Not anymore. Our youngest son Glen has decided to help us with the blueberry production and perhaps expand it into a produce marketing operation. My advice was to plant sweet corn. So now we are looking at analyzing more soil than just one satsuma tree. So Jack the teacher showed me how you are actually supposed to take soil samples. It occurred to me that some of you might need that information. For the area which Glen has cultivated, about 1/3 acre, the teacher went out with a shovel and dug straight down to a depth of 6 inches. Then he took a thin slice of dirt from that hole an put it into a clean bucket. He repeated the process over about 10 places in the eld. He spread the dirt on a clean newspaper to dry. Next, using a clean spoon, he mixed the soil from all his samples and poured it into one of the bags from the extension of ce to the proper ll line. It is important not to allow your hands to touch the soil. While he was doing that, I poured my satsuma tree soil out to make sure it was dry, and mixed it as he had done. Then I poured it into a clean sample bag. In the meantime, Jack had gone to the extension of ce to pick up a mailer box and a sheet of instructions with the fee schedule for the analyses. We placed all the samples in the box and mailed it to The University of Florida. No longer is this a free service, but for under $30 including postage, we will have an analysis and recommendation for the corn patch, the muscadine vineyard, and the satsuma tree. Now, Ill wait to see what we need to do to produce satsumas, my very favorite citrus, after I spray the tree with insecticidal soap to get rid of sooty mold caused by white y infestation. Well also look forward to a crop of sweet corn and maybe some other things like cantaloupes, if we can decide if there is a pre-emergent chemical safe to use to control weeds and grass. If not, somebody will be wielding the trusty hoe which I and my siblings and my husband and his siblings had plenty of experience with when we were growing up. Speaking of soils, we learned after I had concluded this article that our daughter, Cindy Webbs, Charlotte High FFA Land Judging team had won rst place in the state contest in Ocala on Friday. Look for an announcement later from Bethlehem Jr. FFA Chapter about the results of their participation in the State Land Judging contest. NOTE: Week before last, I had the privilege of seeing Ray Reynolds, a Holmes County favorite son now living in California. He asked me to include my email address in my column as he often wants to comment on something in the Happy Corner. I welcome Rays and all comments and suggestions for future articles. The email address is jetison@embarqmail.com.Hitting students at school costs brain functionalityDear Editor, I would like to make some comments on last weeks article about the beatings our students get in our school system (NPR comments on spanking in schools, March 28 Page A4). I too heard the NPR broadcast and was appalled that they zeroed in on Holmes County. Seems that our schools have nally got bad enough to attract national attention. A little over a decade ago, scientists who were researching the effect these beatings have on children discovered that they caused a physical brain damage so severe that it could be seen with an MRI brain scan, it was severe, and it was permanent, caused by abuse and terror. Our military now recognizes this brain damage in adult soldiers and calls it post traumatic stress disorder, now commonly referred to as PTSD, caused by the terror of battle. My own memories of this when I was in school tend to verify this. In my second grade, at least half of our class was beaten every day. Out of a class of 64, we graduated 16, and I feel sure these daily beatings had a great effect on this statistic. Beatings do tend to quell childrens activities, and it is not from learning their lesson they have been turned into zombies, or conservatives in our everyday language, peaceful, unintrusive, obedient, unambitious and compliant because they have lost the ability to be any of the rambunctious things that they were before the beatings, with a brain that has lost much of its functionality and ability for independent and original thought. Coincidentally (or not), this does seem to parallel our countys economic and social fortunes. Perhaps we should look at the way we treat our children to see why we are so backwards here. I was fortunate that my parents made the effort necessary to protect me from the beatings my fellow students were getting in school. They never beat me nor allowed anyone else to, and I bene ted greatly from it all of my life.Charles W. SmithBonifay LETTER TO THE EDITOR Safety measures cant come too soonIf you happened to read my column last week, you heard about the ice storm of 2010 that shut down most of northwest Arkansas for a couple of weeks. I have since been told by Floridians that, minus the ice and freezing temperatures, I had pretty much described a hurricane. And I imagine one bad storm is pretty much the same as the other, unless youre talking about tornadoes or tsunamis. And again as I am writing, there is a tornado warning in the news. Today its a warning for Bay County. Thankfully nothing has come of it. I have had some close encounters with tornadoes though, so that brings us to this weeks topic. You might remember, what got me on the weather kick was Holmes County of cials and their effort to adopt the DeltAlert electronic warning system. The DeltAlert coalition went to the Board of County Commissioners last Tuesday, and the commissioners wanted more information before committing to helping purchase the warning system. Back in that alternate universe Washington County I used to live in, the city of Prairie Grove looked into a similar warning system, one which sends out emails, texts and phone calls to warn of bad weather, after they determined that replacing the citys tornado warning sirens was going to cost a lot of money, and that even with the best sirens, anyone who didnt live immediately around the sirens most likely would never hear them. Sirens werent really designed to be heard inside houses, especially well-insulated houses. Add your TV, stereo or mp3 player complete with headphones, and you probably arent going to know the sirens going off. To avoid spending money on a system most people either wouldnt hear, the city interviewed and ultimately bought into the CodeRed system. Within a few months, both surrounding towns, Farmington, Ark., and Lincoln, Ark., also were shopping for the system. This was all in 2010. At the end of 2010, the city council of Lincoln had also bought into the system and was in the process of setting up the database for notifying residents of severe weather. The on Jan. 1, 2011, it happened. Just before dawn on New Years Day, a EF-3 tornado struck the small community of Cincinnati, Ark., and killed four people. Cincinnati is about 10 miles west of Lincoln. Several homes and the towns re department were destroyed. Several letters and photographs from Cincinnati were found in Benton County, 35 miles away, in the cow pasture of my friend Kent Marts. The storms also hit Benton County and were part of a 27-hour tornado outbreak that killed 9 and spawned 36 con rmed tornadoes in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Louisiana and Mississippi. Cincinnati had no sirens, and there was very little warning for the small community. Just weeks earlier, the city of Lincoln had been discussing putting Cincinnati in their CodeRed program. Then the tornado struck. As bad as Cincinnatis disaster, however, the EF-5 multiple vortex tornado that destroyed Joplin, Mo., on May 22, 2011, made Cincinnatis carnage pale in comparison. That Sunday the same storm system came through Tulsa, Okla., en route to destroying Joplin. Shannon and I were in Akins Natural Foods at 31st and Harvard when the clerk came up to us and said there were tornadoes on the ground in west Tulsa and we should go home immediately and seek shelter. Since we were about 100 miles from home, we decided to run back to the hills. Listening to the radio as we drove east down U.S. 412, we heard the weather reports as funnel clouds traveled over south Harvard Avenue where we had just been 20 minutes earlier. While we hightailed it due east, the storm took a slight turn northeast. Much of Joplin was destroyed, and 160 people died in that storm. Damage was estimated at $2.8 billion. Spencer Tirey, the photo editor for Northwest Arkansas Newspapers, was in Joplin that evening visiting his girlfriend who lived there. Her home, just outside of town, was unmolested, but when they heard the reports of damage, they went back into the city to help. Spencer wound up spending the night helping pull bodies from rubble, and he wrote a harrowing essay about his experiences. He had driven down one of the main roads of the city with the storm literally in his rearview mirror, but he hadnt recognized it for what it was a tornado so massive the sides of it couldnt be seen. The path of the storm was a mile wide in some parts. Whats the point? In Farmington, Ark., they had implemented the CodeRed program by the time the tornado struck Cincinnati. The CodeRed emergency noti cation system sent out more than 1,000 calls starting at 5:56 a.m. Friday to alert Farmington and Prairie Grove residents that they were in the path of a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service out of Tulsa, Okla, we reported in the Washington County Enterprise-Leader the Wednesday following the weekend tornado. This was the rst major storm since both communities signed on with the communication system. Jill Mason, Arkansas account representative for Code Red, said residents registered with the weather system receive calls only if they are located within the direct path of a storm or live within a polygon that shows the potential direction of the storm. Would CodeRed have saved lives in Cincinnati, or Joplin, if it had been available? Well never know. But I do know of some city of cials in Lincoln who wish they could have gotten the system in place just a little bit quicker.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com.Hook harvest SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOMThis is the rst deer killed by 15-year-old Jacob Burnham. He was killed at 5:15 p.m. Feb. 1 on private property while hunting with his grandfather, Daniel Smith. Beginning today, there will be grouper on the spit for shermen in the Gulf waters of Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin counties. The state has come to an agreement with these counties for an early grouper season for 2012 only. The regional season will end June 30. The season also includes all the waters of Apalachicola Bay and Indian Pass, including those in Gulf County, and all the waters of the Steinhatchee River, including those in Dixie County. Gag grouper caught in state waters (from shore to nine miles out) off these four counties may not be brought ashore in areas that are closed to harvest. For example, a gag grouper caught April 1 in state waters off Jefferson County cannot be taken ashore in Dixie County, excluding Steinhatchee River. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission established this regional season at its February Commission meeting to provide shing opportunities for private recreational anglers when gag grouper are closer to shore and can be safely accessed by smaller boats. Overall shing effort for gag grouper is low in these counties, because it is the least densely populated region of the Floridas Gulf Coast. Providing this spring season will balance the economic and social needs of this region with the conservation needs of gag grouper. In Gulf of Mexico federal waters (beyond 9 miles) and in the remainder of Gulf of Mexico state waters, shermen will be able to keep gag grouper from July 1 through Oct. 31. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties will not be open during the July-throughOctober season, but boats with gag grouper aboard may not stop and must have gear stowed while traveling through state waters in that region. The gag grouper recreational harvest minimum size and bag limits remain at 22 inches and two gag grouper per person. No more than four of any species of grouper may be kept.

COOL CATSCraigcat: A small boat with big potentialBy TINA HARBUCK654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Theres a new ride in the area. It has pontoons and a motor, but its not a pontoon boat. Its a Craigcat. The 11-foot-long two-seater boat can scoot across the water at 40 mph. But the biggest advantage of the small boat is the safety factor, said Capt. Bill McDonald of the Mindy Lou II. McDonald, who has been chartering for 35 years, is stepping out into the Craigcat venture along with wife Sheri, and children Sarah Hoffman and Thomas McDonald. The boats are for rent under A-1 Charters and they can also be purchased. They have the best safety record for any small water craft, Bill said. Theyre unsinkable with the stick steering, Sheri said. You cant really give it enough throttle to ip it. In addition to being very safe, they have the best environmental record, Bill said. Environmentally it leaves no footprint. When the boat is running on top, it leaves no wake. The boats have 4-stroke motors and are energy-ef cient. You dont have exhaust to deal with, Sheri said. Theyre awesome and very light weight. The heaviest thing about them is the motor. With the motor, the boat weighs 550 pounds and can carry two passengers along with a small cooler and whatever else you might like to take along within the 600-pound limit. They are considered a power boat or a personal watercraft, Sarah said. The boat takes six gallons of gas and should be good for eight hours of fun on the water. The rst time I went out on it, it was a little intimidating, Sarah said. I felt like I was in a mini-pontoon boat. But Ive had a blast every time Ive gone out. All Craigcats have a dry storage area behind the seats, and an area up front to put a cooler or tackle box. They all have a radio and MP3 music capability and small Bimini tops to get out from under the sun. Each boat has a splashguard across the front. Its very user friendly, Sheri said. The McDonalds and A-1 Charters have the dealership for all of Northwest Florida for Craigcats. Right now they have six for rent and hope to soon have a eet of 10. However, if someone would like to buy one, We can always have one in about a week and you can customize them, Sheri said, such as changing the color of the Bimini or out tting it for shing. To catch a ride on a Craigcat, call 837-1790.Photos by MARGUERITE PARKER | Special to Florida Freedom NewspapersCapt. Bill McDonald helps his wife Sheri and Marguerite Parker off the boat after a test ride Thursday morning. At top, Thomas McDonald has one of the catch-it Craigcats out tted for shing, complete with rocket launchers for rods, trolling motor and wings for his buckets or tackle box. Sheri McDonald and friend Marguerite Parker take one of the Craigcats out for a ride. The small boats can be rented by the hour, half-day or day at A-1 Charters behind the old Electric Cowboy on U.S. 98 in Destin.

HOSPITALITY SPONSOR By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Was Ryan Newman lucky or was he lucky at Martinsville? Well, he pulled off his rst win of the season and his rst ever win at Martinsville after Jeff Gordon ran out of gas and Jimmie Johnson was involved in an accident with Clint Bowyer in turn one. Gordon led the most laps at Martinsville, but Newman took advantage of Gordon running out of gas and in the frontstretch inched out ahead of A.J. Allmendinger for the win. David Reutimann had a bad day. What do they say, if it can go wrong it will? Well it did for Reutimann, and what ended his day on the track wasnt some horri c accident or someone spinning him out by getting a little to close his car simply stalled on the track. The accident that took out Jimmie Johnson happened when Bowyer barreled in to turn one and caught Johnsons bumper, sending Johnson into a spin and leaving him unable to nish the race. Kevin Harvick took the win in the Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville. Harvick had a real good day. Not only did he lead all the laps except for two, he also started in the pole position. Harvick now holds a series record after leading 248 laps. This was also Harvicks third win in the last four years. With Harvick winning the Kroger 500, the win also was the rst win for team owner Richard Childress. There were only seven cautions in the Sprint Cup race. Caution one came on lap 97 when Kyle Busch spun out between turns three and four. Caution two came when Dave Blaney was involved in an accident in turn two. Juan Montoya spun out in lap 263 for the third caution. The fourth caution came when Kasey Kahne blew his engine on the backstretch. On lap 361, Travis Kvapil spun out in turn two for the fth caution of the race. The sixth caution came on lap 496 when Reutimanns car stalled on the track. The seventh and most exciting caution of the race was when Bowyer barreled into turn one and clipped Jimmie Johnson, which sent Johnson into a spin. There are no races scheduled for this weekend because of the Easter holiday.Results from MartinsvilleGoodys Fast Relief 500 (Sprint Cup)1. Ryan Newman 2. A. J. Allmendinger 3. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 4.

After a 21-gun salute and taps were played, U.S. Army pallbearers presented American ags to Rivers wife, Natalie Rivers, and his mother, Barbara Ann Rivers, while mourners gathered around the family. A trains horn sounded off across a grove of trees inside the Orange Hill Cemetery as nal prayers were said. Spc. Rivers, 21, died in a noncombat incident March 14 in Paktika province of Afghanistan, according to the Department of Defense. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 172nd Infantry Brigade, Grafenwoehr, Germany, and was in Afghanistan supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, according to the Department of Defense. Earlier Saturday, U.S. Army Brig. Gen. James Thomas spoke to a couple of hundred mourners at the Marianna High School auditorium. Specialist Rivers signed up knowing we were in a long war against terrorists, Thomas told the gathering. Specialist Rivers stood between the extremists and the possibility of freedom for Afghanistan. He stared down the Taliban. At one point in the ceremony, presiding minister Janet Jackson read a statement prepared by Rivers mother. He had a way of winning you over, Jackson said from the podium. He was charming. He was courteous, he was respectful. He was just a joy. He was a great leader, a loving husband and an awesome friend. As Jackson read the statement, ushers passed out tissues for mourners shedding tears. He will forever stay in our minds and hearts, Jackson read. He will be truly missed especially by me, Mom. Outside the auditorium, Angie McNealy, a cousin of Rivers from his father, Reginald McNealys, side of the family, spoke glowingly of Rivers. He was a fun person, McNealy said. Hed make you laugh if you were going through anything. He knew all the right things to say and do. The Rev. Rueben Merritt said he watched Rivers grow up playing in the neighborhood near his grandmothers house. He was always joyful and laughing with a beautiful smile, Merritt said. Whenever you had seen him, you had seen joy. After the ceremony at the auditorium, Wilburn Jones, 22, walked slowly out of the auditorium past the line of military personnel. He was a classmate of Rivers. He was very kindly, kind-hearted, said Jones, his eyes xated someplace else. He was a good friend. Jones turned and walked away, disappearing into the crowd headed for the cemetery. Back at the gravesite, mother and wife sat quietly, weeping, as the graveside ceremony came to a close. A few mourners walked past the soldiers silver casket, touching the top where a single red carnation was laid. ANDREW P. JOHNSON | The News HeraldNatalie Rivers, wife of Specialist Daquane Rivers recieves a ag honoring him at a graveside service Saturday in Marianna. DAQUANE RIVERS

To encourage community involvement in the center, the college has launched a $3 million Applause! fundraising campaign to e-performances, programs, exhibitions and special events; enhance educational experiences for Chipola students and those in the Chipola District; underwrite annual educational programs that serve more than 6,000 K-12 schoolchildren in the Chipola District; and support facility operations and enhancements. The campaign is being chaired by Harold Donaldson, a Chipola alumnus and retired banker and Joan Stadsklev, retired Associate Dean of the Chipola Fine and Performing Arts Department. Volunteers from across the Chipola district have been selected to lead the campaign which has three major areas: Be Seated, Be a Star and Legacy Initiatives. In the Be Seated program, anyone can establish a permanent presence in the theater by purchasing a plaque on a seat that bears the name of a family member, a friend, someone special, a company or community organization. This is an ideal gift for a birthday, anniversary, graduation and special occasion, as well as a distinctive way to celebrate achievement and honor the memory of a loved one. Orchestra (main oor) seat plaques are $250, with Balcony Seat Plaques available for $150. In the Be A Star program, patrons may purchase a star that bears the name of a family member, a friend, someone special, a company or community organization. Stars are a memorable, long-lasting gift for those who have everything. They can also be used to celebrate achievement, to honor the memory of a loved one or to welcome new children and grandchildren. Stars will be mounted on the prominent wall in the lobby of the Main Theater. Gold Stars are $2,500, with Silver Stars for $1,000 and Bronze Stars for $500. Information about the Be Seated and Be a Star programs may be found at www.chipola.edu or by calling 718-2277.

Nail-biting, gum smacking, knuckle popping they can be irritating habits people have. Even birds display their share of odd behaviors. Feather plucking is a common habit among parrot-type birds, says Dr. Alice Blue-McLendon, a veterinarian with the Winnie Carter Wildlife Center at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. While most adult birds lose their feathers naturally once or twice a year in a process called molting, it is not natural for a bird to pluck out its own feathers, says Blue-McLendon. One of the clues that a bird is plucking its feathers is to look at the birds head. Since a parrot cannot pluck feathers from its own scalp, a feather-plucking bird will have a full head of feathers but be missing a lot of feathers on other parts of its body. As simple as it may sound, the most common reason for a bird to pluck out its own feathers is boredom, says Blue-McLendon. When a bird isnt stimulated by its environment, it may begin plucking its feathers for entertainment or out of frustration, she says. Because of birds high intelligence level, environmental enrichment is extremely important for them, Blue-McLendon notes. They need plenty of toys to play with, especially ones they can chew. The more time they spend chewing on toys and food, the less time they have to chew on their feathers, she adds. Playing with loose feathers may spawn a nasty plucking habit. You dont want to encourage your bird to pluck its feathers out to have something to play with, Blue-McLendon says. Remove the feathers from the cage as soon as they fall out. Excessive grooming, or preening as it is known in the avian arena, is also not an appropriate pastime for birds. You should curb this behavior early, says Blue-McLendon. Preening can be another common precursor to feather plucking. She says its important to try to break any bad habits as soon as you notice them. Temporarily changing your birds environment is a good start, BlueMcLendon explains. Try adding new toys to its cage or simply rearranging its existing toys. Also, consider moving its cage to another area of the house, possibly one with heavier traf c. If your birds meals consist of only seeds, try to incorporate new foods and avors into its diet, says Blue-McLendon. However, know that change is not always the best remedy. Sometimes variation, especially sudden and dramatic variation, in a birds environment can also lead to feather plucking, says Blue-McLendon. Also, before you make any changes, be sure your bird doesnt have a medical reason for plucking its feathers such as mite infestation, a hormone imbalance or skin infection.

There is something special about this holiday that young and old alike seem to enjoy. Easter is one of the more popular holidays in the year, and many Christians throughout the world who may not normally attend a religious service on a regular basis, usually try to attend some service on Easter Sunday. Christs resurrection, after His dying on the cross, proved that He was God and Savior to the world. His resurrection assures us that we also share in His victory, and that He is coming again to receive all believers unto Himself. Easter baskets, jelly beans, and chocolate eggs are all good and festive ways for us to celebrate this important holiday; however, Christs dying and rising again for our sake is the primary reason for Easter. Our heavenly Father who loves us, gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucied. He is not here; for He has risen... R.S.V.

For more information, call 638-2722 Easter BRIEFS Faith EVENTSBy The Rev. James L. SnyderRecently, I discovered something. The more I tried to keep up with the latest trend, the further behind I get. I am not a complete technical idiot, but Im not too far off. The only thing I can say about me is that I at least try. The best example of all of this has to do with my cellphone. Is there anybody on the planet today that does not have a cellphone? And, the most important question, is there anybody driving a car that is not at the same time on that cellphone? Who in the world are they all talking to? The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage nally convinced me to go into cahoots with her and get cellphones. The plan was this: She got to pick out the cellphones and I got to pay the bill. Consequently, we now are in the cellphone industry. I am not sure it is all working out for the good. At this point, I cannot tell the difference when my cellphone is ringing or when I am receiving a text message. When a text message comes in I try to answer the cellphone and nobody seems to be on the other end. When I try to read the text message there are only letters instead of words. It takes me a half hour just to gure out one text message. Where is James Bond when you need him? I may not be the brightest letter on the keyboard, but I do know how to spell words. It seems that in order to use a cellphone today you have to throw out words and start using letters. I will never get the hang of that. When somebody is on the phone and I am talking, all of a sudden the phone goes dead. I can talk for 3 minutes before realizing nobody is on the other end. I nd this most frustrating. In a crowded restaurant the other day, my cellphone went off. Not thinking too much of my environment I answered the cellphone. It was a friend calling me. The conversation started rather jovial for all practical purposes. Suddenly I became conscious I had an audience. There are times when I really prefer not to have an audience. This was one of those times. I realized some of the people around me were eavesdropping in on my conversation. Then the unthinkable happened. My cellphone suddenly went dead. It went dead in the middle of a rather humorous joke I was telling. Now what was I to do? For a few seconds I was not sure what the proper protocol is when your phone goes dead and you have an audience. I had to do some very quick thinking and come up with, what I thought was, a brilliant plan. I understand that when you do have an audience you have a certain responsibility with that audience. So, not to disappoint my audience, I continued my conversation on the cellphone as though somebody was actually on the other end. I was able to nish my joke and then I paused, not knowing what else to do. I merely continued the conversation I was having with my friend who really was not on the other end of this time. Sometimes it is good just to keep up a good front. From the snickers of the people around me in that restaurant, it was well worth nishing that joke. I hate to waste a good joke. After all, they are so hard to come by these days. Many things are just too good to be true and many of them I probably will never really get the hang of it. One thing I never really will fully understand is Gods love for me. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). Although this sounds too good to be true, it is true nevertheless. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship. Some things seem too good to be true
