Forehand said there would be a bake sale, yard sale, rock climbing, bounce house and a wrestling match, with all the money raised going to Worthington and his family for expenses. Weve already got so much help, Forehand said. The armory is donating the rock climbing and the wrestling troupe has agreed that 100 percent of everything they receive will go into funds raised for the Worthington family. Also assisting residents, Diane Little from the Holmes County Health Department came before the council to inform them a faithbased free health clinic would be open 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 at a previous meeting with the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners. 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 that there will be no drugs on the premises but there will be prescriptions made. Its strictly for those who have no insurance, Little said. It could be considered a service of the First Baptist Church, but its open to anyone. The free clinic will be holding their Grand Opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 5, at the old Lottie Moon house on Waukesha Council approves family fundraiser Sen. Don Gaetz visits with residents at Doctors Memorial Hospital on Thursday. The hospital hosted a reception with Rep. Brad Drake as he introduced Sen. Don Gaetz and Rep.

Don Gaetz will be running for this district. Drake will be stepping aside for Coley for two years as this is her last term as representative.

Calhoun was convicted in late February for the rst-degree murder of Mia Shay Brown in December 2010. Judge Christopher Patterson will take Wednesdays testimony under advisement before rendering a decision at a later, as-yet undetermined date. This is a case without question that calls for the death penalty, State Attorney Glenn Hess said in opening the nal hearing. Hess said that the aggravating factors far outweigh the mitigating ones. Theres a vast difference between the aggravating and mitigating factors, Hess said. What he did he did without regard to her as a human being; it was cold, it was calculated and it was without remorse.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 11, 2012 missing Dec. 16, 2010. Four days later, her burned car was found in rural Geneva County, Ala., and her body was discovered in the trunk. Calhouns public defender, Kim Dowgul, began by calling Betsy Spann, Calhouns younger sister. She described her relationship with Calhoun as her best friend. Growing up he was always the one that I played with, lead me and kept me out of trouble, Spann said. He has changed so many peoples lives; hes not putting up a front to try to get out of trouble. Sharon Calhoun said her sons fate is in Gods hands and maintained that her son is innocent. We cant sleep at night, but he says hes let it go into Gods hands, Sharon Calhoun said. Im sorry for Mia, and I know what its like to loose a child. Johnnys innocent; hed never have mistreated a woman. If you kill him, youll kill my husband. You say hes guilty, but hes not guilty. I beg you; dont take my sons life. John Searsy with God is Faithful Ministries said Calhoun was humble and shy when they met in 1985. I cant compare what I met at the jail with the child I met; its not a valid comparison, he said. Dowgul noted that although a jury found him guilty, the state must prove the crime was heinous, atrocious and cruel enough for the death penalty. She said there was only evidence of what happened, but there was no evidence of those events leading up to what happened. They couldnt prove if she was conscious while she was in the trunk, Dowgul said. Its speculative as to whether she was conscious during the burning of the trunk, so you dont know if it truly was heinous and atrocious. You cant prove if it was cold, calculated and cruel. It points more to an action while panicked, not calculated at all. This was not a well thought out plan. She said there was no evidence he ed to avoid arrest and prosecutors didnt have a motive for Browns kidnapping or murder. Again, going to the speculation of this case, the death penalty shouldnt be an option, Dowgul said. Were left here to speculate what the events really were; theres just not enough facts. The facts are not speci c enough and I recommend that you overrule the jurys death penalty verdict. Calhoun speaks Calhoun then approached the judge to speak. Ive done and made some horrible choices in my lifetime, but my lifes now committed to God, Calhoun said. Whatever the court decides, if its life in prison or death, Im OK with it because my lifes in Gods hands now. Hess then called the family of Mia Brown one by one to speak. Chuck Riddle said he was one of those who found his sisters body in the burnt vehicle. I was asked if I had something to say and for 471 days Ive waited, and in all that time I had a lot to say until I got here today, Riddle said. I tried to not hate him. Then I get here and he comes in with that smug smile and tells everyone how his life has been changed, that hes found Christ, but isnt the rst thing about being a Christian is that you admit your sins and seek forgiveness? Not once has he ever admitted his guilt; not once has he sought for forgiveness not from us and on your knees to God at two in the morning isnt going to cut it. When Browns aunt Kay Newton was called to the stand, she countered one of Dowguls arguments. His attorney said that he shouldnt get the death penalty because when he did what he did that he was in a panic, Newton said. That may be true at rst, but then he had 14 hours to change his mind and because he chose to kill my niece, I believe from everything that I read about the death penalty that its called for now. At least his family has a chance to say goodbye, which is more than he did for my niece. Meagan Kriser, Browns sister, took the stand next. We were only 20 months apart, Kriser said. She was my best friend and for the longest time we shared the same bed. Even when we got our own rooms, Id still nd my way to her bed. Now the only way for some of our family members to know her are by stories. Kriser said Calhoun creeped me out when she rst saw him, but Mia said, Thats Johnny Mack. He doesnt have very many friends; we should show him kindness. That was Mia, kind to everyone, giving everyone the bene t of the doubt, and to see him here, how he treated her kindness, I have no doubt that if hes made his peace with God, then he should get there all the sooner so the Father can deal with him personally, she said. Nancy Williams, Browns mother, was the last to speak, rst reading from Browns journal, in which she talked about wanting to spend more time with her family and starting one herself. Brown also read an essay Brown wrote, telling how she sympathized with the main character of a book who was ostracized and an outcast because people judged him for his appearance. This is how she lived her life, treating others how shed want to be treated, Williams said. Ive taught all my children to do the right thing, to be kind to others, and began to think that I taught them the wrong thing but then I realized right will always be right and wrong will always be wrong. Williams then looked at Calhoun. You made your choice and I believe in accountability and I believe justice will be served, she said. J.D. OWENS INC. YOUR HOMETOWN LOW PRICE!

Representatives from the Bonifay Down Home Street Festival thanked the council for their support and informed the council that $3,000 was raised for the Bonifay Fire Department, $1,000 for the Police Department, $250 for the Holmes County High Schools Junior Reserve Of cers Training Corps and a nominal amount for Holmes County High Schools Project Graduation. Youve all done a fantastic job, said Mayor Lawrence Cloud. Police Chief Chris Wells informed council members that the police department obtained three vehicles through Federal Forfeiture, which means they were con scated from criminals because they were used in a crime, such as transporting illegal narcotics. Wells then requested to hire a lawyer, since the city attorney has a conict of interest, to nalize the procedures. Wells explained after procedures are completed the city can choose to keep the vehicles, donate the vehicles or auction the vehicles off. The council approved. Council members were announced their various departments needing overseers, and appointed Cloud over Administration and Police; ViceMayor Micah McCormick over Athletic Committee, Parks and Downtown Revitalization; Council member Richard Woodham over Fire, Water and Sewer; Council member Andrew Granger over Sanitation; and Council member Roger Brooks over Street, Cemetery and Clean-up. The council announced there would be a groundbreaking ceremony for their new Wastewater Treatment Facility at 11 a.m. Thursday at 611 Martin Luther King Ave. and is free and open to the public. The next regularly scheduled Bonifay City Council meeting will be at 6 p.m.April 23 at the Bonifay City Hall. Moss stressed that he will utilize his extensive knowledge of the judicial system along with a strong lunch pail type work ethic to maintain the high level of courteous professionalism and ef ciency that the citizens of Holmes County deserve and have grown accustomed to from their Clerk of Court. Moss graduated from Holmes County High School in 1993 with high honors. After graduation he attended Chipola College and transferred to Troy University where he became a rst generation college graduate by earning his bachelors degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology. While attending college, Moss managed a retail grocery outlet and delivered ice during the summers. Moss stated that he takes pride in the fact that he worked two jobs to put himself through college debt free. Upon graduation from Troy University, Moss began working with the Florida Department of Children and Families where he not only protected our most vulnerable members of society as a Family Services Counselor working in the eld, but he also served as the Revenue Maximization Specialist. These duties included securing and managing the federal funding necessary to support the local foster care program. He was eventually promoted to Foster Care Supervisor for Holmes and Washington counties. It was during this time that Moss gained real life courtroom experience by preparing a wide variety of legal documents and participating in dependency court proceedings. Moss is the son of the late Ventice Moss and Janie Moss Brown. His parents owned the Gulf service station in Bonifay during the 1970s and his mother served on the Bonifay City Council from 1996 until her death in 2003.

Whatever you do, dont say Roll Tide! Ive had at least three folks see the hat and make the Alabama assumption, and though I have no animosity toward Alabama (other than the usual SEC heckling when they are playing the Razorbacks), the hats A stands for Arkansas, as in the Double-A Texas League team, the Arkansas Travelers. So heres a little minor league baseball trivia. The Travelers, also known as the Travs, are North Little Rocks minor league franchise. They used to reside in Little Rock, but those crafty North Little Rockians stole the team away by building a spanking new stadium about ve years ago. Ray Winder Stadium, where the Travs resided in Little Rock from 1932 until 2006, had seen better days. So a special election seeking a 1-percent sales tax bought the Travs a new home north of the Arkansas River called Dickey-Stephens Park. The park was built with a partnership between the city of North Little Rock, the Travs and Little Rock nancier Warren Stephens. It was named after Jack and Witt Stephens and Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey and his brother Skeeter, who also played in the major leagues. Coincidentally, the Dickey brothers also wound up working for the Stephenses after their baseball careers ended. The Travelers were founded in 1895 and were the rst professional team to claim an entire state in 1957 when they became the Arkansas Travelers. About the time the Travs got their new stadium, Northwest Arkansas got its own Texas League team, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. They play at Arvest Stadium in Springdale and have done pretty well, considering their team mascot is a Sasquatch. Both of the Travs names, the Travelers and the Arkansas Travelers, were derived from the old folk song The Arkansas Traveler. Which brings us to the actual topic this week the song, The Arkansas Traveler, which is largely responsible for the state of Arkansas image, which is to say that thanks to a song written 160 years ago, Arkansas remains the Rodney Danger eld of United States. Our beloved columnist Perry Wells seems to enjoy introducing me as an Arkansas traveler, so I am sure he would see the humor in people mistaking my Travelers hat for an Alabama one, although I suspect Alabama fans would take much more umbrage at such a faux pas than I do its not like anyone has mistaken the hat for a Texas A&M cap, for example. The song dates back to the 1850s and has had a variety of lyrics. It is credited to Arkansas own Col. Sanford C. Faulkner, a ddle player, storyteller and former Confederate of cer. According to the encyclopedia of Arkansas website, the song has shaped the image of Arkansas since the 1840s. Thats probably not a compliment, unless you nd barefoot, wiseacre hillbillies attractive. Think The Beverly Hillbillies, Tobacco Road or even worse Evening Shade and you get the average persons image of Arkansas. Anyway, the song was adopted as the Arkansas state song from 1949 to 1963 and since 1987 has been the state historical song. I think the of cial state song now is Phil Ochs Heres To The State Of Mississippi, and if its not, then it should be. A visit to the Internet gives several versions of The Arkansas Traveler lyrics, and apparently there is even a Jerry Garcia version as well as traditional versions, of cial state lyrics written by a committee, and even childrens versions of the song. The song also was part of Laurel and Hardys Academy Award-winning short The Music Box and inspired a Vaudeville circuit comedy routine, which is echoed in Garcias song. The song also is credited with inspiring the Edward Washburn 1858 painting of the same name. By now youre probably thinking, what has any of this got to do with Florida? Well, oddly enough, when I started searching online to hear The Arkansas Traveler played, the rst version I found was Archie Lee performing at the 1956 Florida Folk Festival in White Springs. And what version is he singing? Why its the vaudeville version, of course, which is very similar to Jerry Garcias take in fact, its probably the same song. Apparently someone named Michelle Shocked also has done a version of the vaudeville lyrics on a childrens album, to boot. Arkansas gets no respect, I tell you but Im still going to root for the Travs. In my article two weeks ago, I mostly lled the space with the comments made by former Holmes County students who were recipients of school paddlings and had no room left for any summary of opinions. And I have had little comment on the article, but it did result in having a good visit with my friend, Dot Galloway. She has been a resident of Tallahassee with her children Cissy and Billy for the past three years after the death of her husband, Clyde. But she still gets the Times-Advertiser and reads the Happy Corner. She and Cissy have become a part of Thomasville Road Baptist Church, where the No. 1 paddling recipient according to Jedd McFatters informal survey, Matt Curry, serves as associate pastor/youth minister. On March 25, the pastor assigned Matt to preach at the 11 a.m. service. Dot purchased a CD of his message and shared it with me. We were both so proud of his message. The topic, The Sifting of God, was timely, well researched and backed by scripture, and supported with plenty of real-life experiences. Not only that, but his delivery was right on. No need to apologize for his Holmes County accent. Jamie McFatter Balkom won the title for the second most paddlings. (She said I paddled her, but I certainly dont remember it.) Jamie is a practicing attorney with the Manuel and Thompson personal injury law rm. She is voracious reader and is interested in becoming a writer. In addition, she is the mother of two little girls. Obviously, the school paddlings didnt do much permanent damage to these two nor any of the others who responded. As a teacher who formerly paddled and then did not, I support corporal punishment in principal. If I had it to do over, I would not paddle, but as I did toward the end of my teaching, I would ask someone else to do it. Mike Anderson, my next door teaching associate, was the best. He calmly talked to the student about his misdeed; he talked about how neither he nor I came to school to beat up on kids and then he administered the board of education to the seat of learning. That usually took care of a lot of future problems. Talking with teachers who work in districts where paddling is banned, they feel that spanking makes the dif cult task of maintaining a satisfactory learning environment possible, especially at the elementary school level. I remember when Lorna Raper was in Holmes County having come from a district in coastal southeast Florida. She said we do more teaching in Holmes County with our Bibles and our paddles than anywhere she had ever been. Some studies, however, have shown paddling can hurt mental development and can make kids more aggressive. It is also argued that it is ineffective as the same children go from grade to grade getting paddlings each year without signi cant change in their behavior. One argument for the practice is that it keeps kids in school because the alternative to paddling is suspension. When students miss school and fall behind in their work (and the misbehaving student is likely already behind), they are much more prone to give up and drop out. One lengthy commentary showed some positive bene ts from paddling. He says, and I will try to summarize, when incorporated into the communitys acceptance of punishment, corporal punishment can be legitimate and good. He goes on to say that Bonifay, unlike other places, has an intra and an interconnectedness and that when a mature well-respected person (the principal) administers the discipline, the recipient understands that this discipline is administered by his own better self and is seen as a form of self-discipline. According to this analyst, the student is subliminally emerging as a better person. I wonder if that also works in families. If I was emerging as a better person after my little Mamas switchings, it was de nitely subliminally. I would never have admitted it at the time. One local writer has expressed the opinion that mental development is stymied by corporal punishment and even suggests that Holmes Countys backwardness can be attributed to the administration of beatings in the school system. I am sure that with the permissiveness we see in our society today, corporal punishment will one day be a thing of the past, but as a former teacher, I dread that day for those in the profession, whether they paddle or not. HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Dear Editor, I would like to thank Mt. Zion, family and friends for supporting me on Feb. 25. God bless you all.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, April 11, 2012 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Hol mes County School Board agreed April 3 to relinquish all responsibility of the old county agriculture build ing to the town of Ponce de Leon, pending the accep tance of the Ponce de Leon Town Council during their next regularly scheduled meeting. Ive done the title search and report that the deed is all ready to be signed over to the Town of Ponce de Leon if they are willing to accept it, which I havent heard from them, said HCSD Attorney Lucas Taylor. Holmes County Super intendent Gary Galloway said the building wasnt on school board property, but with an agreement from the landowner, the building was leased to the town of Ponce de Leon as a storage area in 1988. The school board no longer had any invested in terest in the ag building but still had use for the gym, Galloway said. I dont even know if we still have squatters rights to the ag building because of the lack of necessity and use of the building by the school board. Galloway said with it being on someone elses land and with the extent of repair needed to bring the building to satisfactory us ability, it was too much of a liability to the school board to continue being attached to the building. With the recent inter est of the town of Ponce de Leon to expand on the use of that building, were more than willing to relinquish all ties to the building to the town of Ponce de Leon, Galloway said. Present at the school board meeting were two parents concerned with the dress code enforced at the Holmes County High School Prom. Weve got an issue with Principal Eddie Dixon sin gling girls out about the way they dress and not others, said parent Nikki Elmore. There were girls at the dance that werent able to dance or they were sent home because of the way they dressed, and there were others there who were dressed in less who got to enjoy their prom. The second parent, Christian Mann, said more parents say theyve had similar problems but nev er spoke up about it, and now that her daughter had missed out on enjoying her prom, she was there to speak to the school board. My daughter worked hard and saved up to go to prom on her own money, and she didnt even get to enjoy her prom, Mann said. She didnt even get one step into prom when she was told that she could wear her dates jacket or she could leave. Mann said she studied the dress code for prom and that she found it to be very confusing. It says that you cant have straps but you must have straps, you cant show your back, but you can and you see all these pictures of girls in the same dress or less, and they werent told to leave or cover up, Mann said. My daughter worked so hard to raise money for that dress and never even made it to the dance oor. Galloway said he prom ised to look into the matter extensively. Larry Zorn with the facilities division told the board they were being ned $40,000 by the Florida Edu cation Finance Program from their last FEFP and transportation audit. It wasnt clear about the processing of the ma trix, and there were places that needed initialing that werent, Zorn said. It was clearly just a clerical error, and were asking permis sion to appeal the ne.

Gary Galloway Holmes County superintendent From Staff Reports BONIFAY Holmes County Health De partment celebrated their rst anniver sary for Extended Hours Clinic Monday, April 2, in the lobby in the HC health department. Several health care agencies came to celebrate with us, said Outreach Special ist for HCHD Moises Vallejos. We had a good response from the community, many health department clients were there, several local civic leaders, people running for public ofce, friends and family of the health department where there also. Holly Holt gave a report on services rendered at the Extended Hours Clinic, with a total of 1,749 clients served a year, averaging about 145 clients a month. There are no medical practices in Hol mes County offering services after 5 p.m. on weekdays other than the ER at DMH. Extended Hours Clinic is possible through a Federal grant called Low In come Pool, established to ensure contin ued government support for the provision of health care services to Medicaid, under insured and uninsured populations. Holmes CHD applied about a year an a half ago to provide primary care servic es through extended clinic hours provid ing much needed care to individuals that need a primary care medical home, Valle jos said. This project will also assist in ER diversion. Other services will include community outreach, case management, on-site mental health counseling and chronic disease identication/treatment with an emphasis on diabetes. Holmes County Health Department offers various services to the community consisting of primary care, dental, school health program, environmental health services, communicable disease sur veillance, family planning services, and immunizations.

Submit your photos to news@ chipleypaper.com Hook harvest Photos Special to Florida Freedom Newspapers This sturgeon was one of 11 netted, studied and released last week to determine any after-effects from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Dylan Cazalas, 8, helped his father take this gobbler last weekend in Washington County. The sherman paid the price of admission and walked to the end of the pier and hooked up his Sibiki bait rig. Everyone thinks Sibiki means something in Japanese, but I asked a lady of Japanese descent, and she said it meant nothing in her native tongue. The sherman unraveled his king rod equipped with 30-pound test line, a swivel a length of wire of about two feet and two treble hooks, one arranged one over the other to assure a hook-up if the rst missed its mark. Below him were thousands of greenback herring and cigar minnows that one sherman described as being so large they had their own ZIP code. The sherman lowered the bait rig into the clouds of bait under the pier, hooking up several herring and cigar minnows. Picking out the one he gured had the best chance of being eaten alive, he hooked the top treble hook through its tail, leaving the lower hook to swing free. Usually this free-swinging hook will be the one that foul hooks the king, thus catching a sh that would otherwise have gotten a meal and gone on its merry way. The other baits that were not chosen to be shed with were placed into an ice chest to be used later. Dead bait sometimes can be as effective as live ones, especially on the days the bait is just not under the pier to be caught. Herring and cigar minnows seek the safety of the pilings of the pier hoping the Spanish and kings and bonito will not come under the pier to eat them. On some days there are so many under the pier, it is impossible to see the bottom. Most shermen, after tossing the cigar minnow out as far as possible, will not put their rods down and instead hold on for dear life. To lean a rod against the rail is an invitation to lose several hundred dollars of high-priced reel and rod. When a king hits, it usually is a violent affair and the sherman had better be holding on with both hands. Fighting a big sh off a pier requires the cooperation of all the shermen on the pier. Those not hooked up need to get out of the way of the sherman who is. After the sh is subdued to the point of exhaustion, another sherman will assist with a gaff on a rope to hook the sh and drag it on board as the line is not suf cient to lift the sh from the water. Thats about all there is to it. Whether you are a sherman of just a bystander, it is worth the price of admission to just walk out on one of our piers here in Bay County and watch the action. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Photos special to Florida Freedom Newspapers Whopper Spanish like this one have become common in recent years thanks to catch limitations that have allowed more sh to reach maturity. They take many of the same lures that kings like, though they usually are found nearer the beaches and piers. Below, large king mackerel are not the exception, though this is a nice one. MACKEREL 2 WA Y S Both species of macks come to Panhandle early By FRANK SARGEANT Special to Florida Freedom Newspapers franksargeant@charter.net Except for the paint job and the size, youd have a hard time telling Spanish mackerel from their larger cousins, the king mackerel. They look alike and act alike, and both are fast as greased lightning. Both also have arrived in Panhandle area waters early this year thanks to the incredibly warm winter and will provide action through mid-October. Heres a look at how to go about tangling with these toothy speedsters. FIT FOR A KING Kings generally travel schooled by size. The snakes of 7 to 12 pounds swarm together in the largest masses, usually around reef lines or directly around the largest bait sh schools. It is the migration of the bait that brings the annual migration of the game sh thread ns and Spanish sardines are their primary targets. Sometimes these guys are only 1 or 2 miles off the beaches. The larger kings, 15 pounds and on up to the maximum size of 40 and even 50 pounds, more often are found around wrecks and offshore ledges, though a few jumbos also prowl the outfall of the major passes. They home in on larger baits, blue runners, cigar minnows, lady sh, even young Spanish and blue sh. The smaller kings usually are easy pickings, easily located because there often is a eet of boats trolling around the larger schools. If you can get out there on a calm day in your 17-foot center console, you can catch them. Just join the trolling circle, put out a 5to 6-inch chrome single-hook spoon like the Drone on a downrigger or No. 2 planer, and you soon will be in business. Remember to stay in the trolling pattern. Dont drive your boat through the bait sh, or you will ruin the action for everybody and get a well-deserved cussing from the charterboat skippers for doing so. Bigger kings can be more of a challenge. Most of the largest are caught by slowtrolling large live baits, with blue runners a favorite for their durability. Foot-long lady sh, mullet and other inshore species also attract big bites at times. Most anglers use stinger rigs on these big baits; a dangling treble, size 6 in triple-x strong, is trailed back the side of the bait on a No. 6 wire and sometimes a couple of trebles are used on larger baits. These extra hooks prevent kings from chopping off the tail of the bait as they often do without getting hooked. Kings are not dif cult to handle after the rst run. But that rst run of a really big one can clean a spool in seconds, so reels capable of handling plenty of line are a must. Most anglers like at least 300 yards on the spool tests of 20 to 25 are common in spinning gear, 30 to 40 in conventional. Keep your drag light, even with heavy tests. SPANISH SURPRISE Although Spanish mackerel never reach the maximum size of kings, it has become fairly common in recent years to catch them up to 7 pounds, unheard of 20 years ago when heavy commercial harvest made it rare for a Spanish every to reach its third birthday. These days there are plenty of 5-year-old sh out there, and they run and ght just like the king sh. Spanish are great sh for kids and inexperienced anglers because they seem almost eager to take the hook at times, and if the rst one misses the second or third does not. Spanish average around 2 to 3 pounds so heavy gear is de nitely not called for. A 7-foot medium action spinning rod, 2500-sized reel and a spool of 10-pound test micro ber is the ticket, allowing the sh to show their stuff and yet with enough capacity to handle the occasional 6 to 7 pounder. Again, pier tackle needs to be signi cantly heavier to ease control of the sh from the span, but even here be sure to set your drag light to avoid pull-outs. Though Spanish have sharp teeth, they also have sharp eyes. You can catch them on live baits with No. 2 wire, but you will get a lot more hits on arti cials if you go to clear uorocarbon or hard mono in 25 to 30 pound test. Tie to the micro ber with a double uniknot. Avoid snaps and swivels because macks sometimes home in on them, apparently thinking they are extra tiny glass minnows, and will cut you off. FROM HOOKING TO COOKING Both kings and Spanish are good on the table with proper preparation. They have a more shy taste than some species. But get them on ice immediately when caught and cook them without freezing, and they can make excellent eating. Fillet, skin and remove the red line and you have gotten rid of most of that shy taste the remaining llets are good grilled, baked or broiled or in an Italian tomato and parmesan casserole, among many other recipes. SIZE AND BAG LIMITS The limit on Spanish is a generous 15 sh daily, minimum size 12 inches to the fork. Note that small king sh look very much like Spanish, but the limit on kings is two daily, 24 inches to the fork; you can differentiate the species because the Spanish has a black dorsal n, while the king dorsal is blue-gray.

Wallace TALLADEGA, HERE WE COME Cathrines PIT STOP Times-Advertiser to provide live coverage of Aarons Dream Weekend By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Ladies and gentlemen, were going to Talladega. The one and only Cecilia Spears and I have gotten the goahead from our editor and the credentials from the speedway. There will be live updates from my Twitter account @ catspitstop all weekend as we attend the Aarons Dream Weekend at Talladega, Ala. Because there were no races this weekend, I gured what better time to give my fellow NASCAR fans a brief history on the Talladega Superspeedway? Known as NASCARs most competitive track, not that long ago it was just farmland next to two abandoned airport runways the government had sold to the city of Talladega after World War II. One day, Anniston, Ala., insurance executive Bill Ward, a race car driver and fan, and William H.G. (Bill) France, who happens to be the founder of NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation, found the land in North Talladega County following a causal conversation in Daytona in the mid-1960s. There was a meeting with then-mayor of Talladega James Hardwick and some of the other city of cials in a restaurant in Anniston in 1966. France asked the group to think about putting the track at the site, and after a trip to the Firecracker 400 in Daytona, they agreed to the track, which was at rst called the Alabama International Motor Speedway. In 1989, it was renamed Talladega Superspeedway after they saw the economic impact race fans had on Daytona. The track is 2.66 miles long, has banking of 33 degrees on each end, 18 degree banking in the tri-oval and is four lanes wide. Many of the cars have reached speeds above 220 miles per hour in the backstretch, which is nearly 4,000 feet long. The all-reserved 212-acre in eld has room for thousands, and the grandstand seats an astonishing 143,231 people. Construction began on the 2,000-acre speedway site on May 23, 1968. The rst race was held on Saturday, Sept. 13, 1969, the Bama 400 Grand Touring, where Ken Rush drove his Chevrolet Camaro into Victory Lane. Then on Sunday, Sept. 14, 1969, the rst Grand National race (now the NASCAR Sprint Cup), Richard Brickhouse became the rst driver to win a major race at the Talladega 500 (now the Good Sams Club 500). That rst race didnt go off without some worries. At practice for that rst major race, there were problems with the tires holding out for more than just a few laps. Talladega is known as one of the fastest, most competitive superspeedways in the world for one reason: In that rst practice, Charlie Glotzbach won the pole position with a speed of 199.466 miles per hour. The tires were declared unsafe by the Professional Drivers Association led by Richard Petty because the speeds the drivers were going werent allowing the tires to hold out. But France knew there were thousands of fans who had traveled to Talladega to see the race, so it went on, using some of the drivers who raced the day before and the drivers who had decided not to race in the boycott. All 500 miles of that rst race were run without any major accidents. France decided after that rst race at Talladega to rain check the house for any future race at Daytona and Talladega. This action that France took broke up the PDA, and it dissolved two years later. Talladega has been a place for many of the drivers to set and break many records over the years. It wasnt too long before the speedway became known for it speed and tough driving conditions. Being one of the fastest and most competitive tracks, it has played a very big role in the career of many of the top drivers of today. Pete Hamilton was the rst driver to win two of the major events in 1970 driving Plymouths by Petty Enterprises. The rst driver to win three years in a row was David Person. He won those three races in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Wining both races in 1975 and the spring event in 1976 and the race in 1980, Buddy Baker was the rst four-time winner at Talladega. Drivers who have since joined Baker in that category are Jeff Gordon, Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison. In 1987, the world stock car record was made by Bill Elliott, when he clocked a speed of 212.809 miles per hour during qualifying. The record for a 500 mile stock car record was made in 1997 during a caution-free spring Winston Select 500 with a speed of 188.354 miles per hour by Mark Martin. He also won this race. The only person to win 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Talladega was the late great Intimidator (Dale Earnhardt Sr.), he won those races in 1983, 1984, two races in 1990, 1991, two races in 1993, 1995 1999 and 2000. The Diehard 500 became the rst 500-mile race at Talladega to have 1,000 of cial lead changes in 1993. This is a feat because the track was only 25 years old at the time, and the Diehard 500 was only 188 laps. The rst sell-out in Talladega history was when they moved the second event of the year from the summer to October in 1997. When the race was moved to October, it was placed into the schedule for the 10 Championship Cup races, which Talladega has enjoyed since 1997. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS In 1969, Richard Brickhouse was the rst winner of a major race at Talladega.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 By Bobby Ray Rackley Special To Extra EDITORS NOTE: This essay was submitted by Bobby Ray Rackley, an inmate at Graceville Correctional Facility. His essay won a writing contest based on the theme, How To Make A Difference. I believe there are many ways that I can make a difference in this world. However, I believe the most important is the impact and in uence I have on those around me. I strive to be a positive in uence on everyone that I come in contact with on a day-to-day basis. I am a rm believer in the age-old saying Lead by example. Therefore the best way for me to make a difference is to be the absolute best man that I can be, and encourage others to follow my example. I believe all of us have the power within ourselves to change the world. The problem is most of us have absolutely no idea how to begin to accomplish such a noble goal. How many of us even take the time out from the rat race and our hectic schedules to ask ourselves how can I make the world a better place? most of us automatically assume there is nothing I can do I am just one person, one voice, out of millions. The fact of the matter is, though, change begins with one. If I want to change the world then it starts with me. I have to be the type of person that I expect others to be. I have to treat others the way I want to be treated. This life principle is known as the Golden Rule and I can think of no better principle to live by. I can make a difference in tomorrow by each life I touch today. The idea of making a difference in the world is not so far fetched. In fact just the opposite, its quite plausible. It doesnt take all that much to make a positive impact and be a good in uence to others. Little things mean a lot more than most people think. Just a kind word or a smile can make a difference and brighten someones day. I try to smile often after all smiles are contagious. Have you ever tried talking to someone that was smiling at you? You cant help but smile back at them. Even when you are in a bad mood, the smile is automatic when someone is smiling at you, it just come natural. I like to speak kind words and compliment others. It is amazing to watch the transformation on someones face and how they just light up when you shower them with praise. A few kind words can lift someones spirit and change their whole outlook on the day. The people around us have a lot more in uence on our lives than we realize. Im sure you have heard it said you can tell who a man is, by who his friends are. Many young people in todays society blame their mistakes on peer pressure. They are just trying to t in, or be one of the guys. This is proof that we all are in uenced by the people around us. I believe deep in my heart if I had more positive role models growing up, I would not be in prison today. My in uences were alcoholics, and street hustlers, and that is just what I became. I thank God that he allowed me to live long enough to see the error of my ways. I thank God for the wisdom I gave gained. I now realize that I am a in uence on the people around me. This means I have a huge responsibility thats why it is so important for me to be the best man I can be, not only for myself but for the ones that I may in uence, that call me friend. I once heard it said that who we were is who we are; our past has shaped us into who we are today. Therefore, how we live today determines who we are tomorrow. The bible says that we reap what we sow, therefore I choose to sow good crops like kindness, compassion, generosity, friendship, and love. I sow good crops today so that I can reap good crops in my future. The only time I ever want to look down on my brother is when I am helping him up. I can make a difference just by being a good man. In closing I would like to offer a word of encouragement to all who read this. Join me in my mission to be the best I can be and make it your mission as well. Think of all the ones that we may in uence as a group instead of just an individual, A chain reaction of good that can go throughout the world. Yes, I can make a difference and with your help, we can change the world by the way we in uence others. With the emergence of springtime, comes the arrival of allergies. Although the landscape is lush, many people experience the beauty that comes with the warmer weather as well as the bothersome allergy symptoms. Pets can also be affected by allergies and it is important to be mindful of any symptoms that your pet might be displaying. People sneeze and wheeze with allergies, while dogs tend to itch and scratch, says Dr. Adam Patterson, clinical assistant professor and a board certi ed dermatologist at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. The hallmark sign of allergic skin disease is itch that can be manifested as licking, chewing, rubbing, biting, scooting, head shaking, and/or scratching. Typically, the face, ears, paws, armpits, groin, and rump are the most affected sites. Patterson explains that animals with allergic skin disease are highly prone to recurring skin and/or ear infections involving bacteria and yeast. Infections can cause increased itch, redness, pimples, blackheads, scabs, dander, hair loss, skin thickening, and odor. Horses many times will break out in hives. Animals tend to be allergic to many of the same things people are hypersensitive to such as pollen, mold, dust, house dust mite, and foodstuffs, Patterson explains. An exception would be eas the most common thing dogs and cats are allergic to. Despite this, many people are in eanial and refuse to believe just a few ea bites can be triggering the itch response in their pet. Likewise, horse owners may not be aware how just a few insect bites could be responsible for or contributing to itchy skin disease. Allergic skin disease can be mistaken for many other forms of skin disease. A veterinary dermatologist is trained to work with primary care veterinarians to get down to the bottom of how to best diagnose and manage skin and ear disease, including allergies, in animals. See www.acvd. org for more information. It is important to understand that allergies can be managed, but not cured, just as with humans. The goal is to reduce the extent and severity of signs, not completely eliminate them. Management regimens might include increased frequency of bathing (washing pollens off the skin surface), antimicrobials or antibiotics, ea prevention, fatty acids, antihistamines, change in diet, steroids, and immunotherapy, also known as desensitization or hyposensitization. The use of the latter can be determined through a good step-wise diagnostic approach along with allergy skin testing and administered by way of allergy shots or oral allergy drops, says Patterson. When it is time to take your pet in for allergy skin testing? Typically, dogs should have allergy symptoms for at least 5-6 months out of the year before considering skin testing for environmental allergies, which include reactivity to pollen, molds, house dust mite, and house dust, in order for the diagnostic tests and treatment to be cost effective over the long haul, Patterson recommends. Patterson explains that rainfall cuts down on airborne pollen and may provide itch relief to pets, but at the same time rain may cause plants to produce more pollen over the next few weeks. Indeed, rain fall might worsen ea and mold allergies because moisture and humidity are favorable to eas and mold. Of course, rain has no effect on food-related allergic skin diseases. Given the mild winter and lack of national weather fronts during the 2011-2012 seasons, pollen is likely to be at an all-time high this year. Consequently, there likely will be many itchy pets this year, says Patterson. Allergies are certainly not an uncommon thing to see in pets. It is important to be aware of the symptoms and to notify a veterinarian when they persist. For more information please visit vetmed.tamu.edu/ large-animal-hospital/ dermatology/allergies.

This Message Courtesy of God Loves the Poor The Bible contains over 2000 references to poverty and social justice issues, with at least 200 references telling us directly to help the poor. Throughout the Old and New Testament we are commanded to help those in need, whether they are widows, orphans, immigrants, or the impov erished. Nowhere are we advised to question whether they are lazy or why they in dire straits. We are simply told to help them. The Bible even institutes particular social programs to help the poor. Farm ers are instructed leave the gleanings for the poor. (Leviticus 19:9) Perhaps if we had such wise social programs economies, there would be less poverty, or at least there might be less misery amongst the impoverished. It is probably true that we shall always have the poor with us, and this makes it more important, not less, that we should minister to their needs. The poor are shunned even by their neighbors, butthe rich have many friends. It is a sin to de spise ones neighbor, but blessed isthe one who is kind tothe needy.

SNYDER Whenever I am out in public, I try conducting myself with the greatest of care knowing that people are watching. The thing that bothers me the most is that many people have never mastered the ne art of how to dress in public. Some people have never been taught how to dress, let alone how to dress in public. Whenever I go to the mall, and believe me it is as seldom as possible, I cannot help noticing some of these people. What I cannot understand is why young men wear pants too big for them and young women wear pants too small for them. Perhaps we ought to get a little group together and try to reverse this trend. Somebody got the wrong information. I was in the mall the other day and noticed several young men in front of me with trousers several sizes too big and were constantly falling down. One hand was grabbing their trousers while the other hand was hanging onto a cellphone. I wanted to go up and tell them that there is this marvelous new invention called The Belt that would solve the problem that they were having. Once they have The Belt, they can put it on and forget about their trousers falling down to their ankles. If there is anything I do not want to see it is somebodys trouser falling down to their ankles. Criticize me if you want to, but I simply cannot not follow these young men walking down in mall. By the time I cover the space of three stores, I am a nervous wreck, wondering when those trousers are actually going to fall. Young women are no different. It seems to me that most young women purchase their entire wardrobe when they are in the rst grade. At that time, the clothing ts very nicely. By the time these young women hit the 10th grade, those rst-grade clothing are not only out of style, but t no more. Where are their mothers? I know the economy is bad, but really, is it so bad that people cannot afford to upgrade their wardrobe, as they get older and consequently bigger? Shouldnt there be some sale on mirrors these days? If I were a congressman in Washington, D.C., I would work very hard to pass a bill that would make it illegal to walk out of your house on any given morning without rst looking into the mirror to see if everything is covered. That is the kind of change I can believe in. As I get older, it gets more dif cult to conduct myself as a gentleman because there is so much I do not want to see. Last week I had to return an item to a store and was unprepared for what I was to encounter. I assumed I was well prepared for the day. I went through the normal routine of exercising my eyes to look upward. I try my best when I am out in public to look into the eyes of people, especially those of the gentler sex. This particular day I had really met my match. I stood in line waiting to return my item and I was not thinking too much about the process. I was humming to myself some hymn that was on my mind at the time and was not paying attention to the surroundings. As I say, I trained my eyes to look upward when I am out in public. Eventually, it was my turn to go to the counter and return the item. I walked up and was aghast. I said to myself, Look at the eyes, look at the eyes, look at the eyes. For some reason my eyes were not paying any attention whatsoever. All those years of training seem to have gone out the window. My eyes were in a staring mode and I did not know how to break it. It really is not my fault; I think people should take personal responsibility for their person when they go out in public. They should make sure that everything is prim and proper because you never know what you are going to run into in any given day. For a moment, I had forgotten what I was at the counter for, I tried to shift my eyes into a higher level and it was all I could do to communicate what I needed to communicate at the time. But my eyes, oh, my eyes. They certainly were not helping me in this regard. I might as well come clean and confess. As I walked up to the counter to return my item I could not help but notice that the woman behind the counter was wearing, and you will not believe me, a beard. Yes, I said a beard, whiskers and all. I could not believe it at rst. I thought maybe my eyes were trying to get back at me for being so harsh on them the last few months. But no, there in full view of everybody, including my pair of eyes, was a woman with a beard any man would have been proud to wear. All I could think of at the time was what Job said. I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? (Job 31:1 KJV). My motto: be careful, little eyes. where you stare. The Rev. James L.

Forehand said there would be a bake sale, yard sale, rock climbing, bounce house and a wrestling match, with all the money raised going to Worthington and his family for expenses. Weve already got so much help, Forehand said. The armory is donating the rock climbing and the wrestling troupe has agreed that 100 percent of everything they receive will go into funds raised for the Worthington family. Also assisting residents, Diane Little from the Holmes County Health Department came before the council to inform them a faithbased free health clinic would be open 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 at a previous meeting with the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners. 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 that there will be no drugs on the premises but there will be prescriptions made. Its strictly for those who have no insurance, Little said. It could be considered a service of the First Baptist Church, but its open to anyone. The free clinic will be holding their Grand Opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 5, at the old Lottie Moon house on Waukesha Council approves family fundraiser Sen. Don Gaetz visits with residents at Doctors Memorial Hospital on Thursday. The hospital hosted a reception with Rep. Brad Drake as he introduced Sen. Don Gaetz and Rep. Marti Coley on Thursday at the hospital. Above, Sen. Don Gaetz, Rep. Marti Coley and Rep. Brad Drake visited Doctors Memorial Hospital Thursday. Due to redistricting, Sen. Don Gaetz will be running for this district. Drake will be stepping aside for Coley for two years as this is her last term as representative. Ill be back in two years and I will be counting on everyones support for my return, said Drake. Until then you couldnt nd better representatives to ght for you than Coley and Gaetz. Making roundsRANDAL SEYELER | Times-Advertiser By CECILIA SPEARS 638-0212| @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Convicted murderer Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun returned to court Wednesday for his Spencer Hearing, during which both attorneys argued whether he deserves the death penalty. Calhoun was convicted in late February for the rst-degree murder of Mia Shay Brown in December 2010. Judge Christopher Patterson will take Wednesdays testimony under advisement before rendering a decision at a later, as-yet undetermined date. This is a case without question that calls for the death penalty, State Attorney Glenn Hess said in opening the nal hearing. Hess said that the aggravating factors far outweigh the mitigating ones. Theres a vast difference between the aggravating and mitigating factors, Hess said. What he did he did without regard to her as a human being; it was cold, it was calculated and it was without remorse. Brown, 24, of Bonifay, went Murderer: My lifes in Gods hands nowJudge to decide whether Johnny Mack Calhoun will get the death penaltyFrom Staff ReportsBONIFAY Lee Moss, 36, of Bonifay, has announced his candidacy for Holmes County Clerk of Court, according to Thursday, April 5, news release.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 11, 2012missing Dec. 16, 2010. Four days later, her burned car was found in rural Geneva County, Ala., and her body was discovered in the trunk. Calhouns public defender, Kim Dowgul, began by calling Betsy Spann, Calhouns younger sister. She described her relationship with Calhoun as her best friend. Growing up he was always the one that I played with, lead me and kept me out of trouble, Spann said. He has changed so many peoples lives; hes not putting up a front to try to get out of trouble. Sharon Calhoun said her sons fate is in Gods hands and maintained that her son is innocent. We cant sleep at night, but he says hes let it go into Gods hands, Sharon Calhoun said. Im sorry for Mia, and I know what its like to loose a child. Johnnys innocent; hed never have mistreated a woman. If you kill him, youll kill my husband. You say hes guilty, but hes not guilty. I beg you; dont take my sons life. John Searsy with God is Faithful Ministries said Calhoun was humble and shy when they met in 1985. I cant compare what I met at the jail with the child I met; its not a valid comparison, he said. Dowgul noted that although a jury found him guilty, the state must prove the crime was heinous, atrocious and cruel enough for the death penalty. She said there was only evidence of what happened, but there was no evidence of those events leading up to what happened. They couldnt prove if she was conscious while she was in the trunk, Dowgul said. Its speculative as to whether she was conscious during the burning of the trunk, so you dont know if it truly was heinous and atrocious. You cant prove if it was cold, calculated and cruel. It points more to an action while panicked, not calculated at all. This was not a well thought out plan. She said there was no evidence he ed to avoid arrest and prosecutors didnt have a motive for Browns kidnapping or murder. Again, going to the speculation of this case, the death penalty shouldnt be an option, Dowgul said. Were left here to speculate what the events really were; theres just not enough facts. The facts are not speci c enough and I recommend that you overrule the jurys death penalty verdict. Calhoun speaksCalhoun then approached the judge to speak. Ive done and made some horrible choices in my lifetime, but my lifes now committed to God, Calhoun said. Whatever the court decides, if its life in prison or death, Im OK with it because my lifes in Gods hands now. Hess then called the family of Mia Brown one by one to speak. Chuck Riddle said he was one of those who found his sisters body in the burnt vehicle. I was asked if I had something to say and for 471 days Ive waited, and in all that time I had a lot to say until I got here today, Riddle said. I tried to not hate him. Then I get here and he comes in with that smug smile and tells everyone how his life has been changed, that hes found Christ, but isnt the rst thing about being a Christian is that you admit your sins and seek forgiveness? Not once has he ever admitted his guilt; not once has he sought for forgiveness not from us and on your knees to God at two in the morning isnt going to cut it. When Browns aunt Kay Newton was called to the stand, she countered one of Dowguls arguments. His attorney said that he shouldnt get the death penalty because when he did what he did that he was in a panic, Newton said. That may be true at rst, but then he had 14 hours to change his mind and because he chose to kill my niece, I believe from everything that I read about the death penalty that its called for now. At least his family has a chance to say goodbye, which is more than he did for my niece. Meagan Kriser, Browns sister, took the stand next. We were only 20 months apart, Kriser said. She was my best friend and for the longest time we shared the same bed. Even when we got our own rooms, Id still nd my way to her bed. Now the only way for some of our family members to know her are by stories. Kriser said Calhoun creeped me out when she rst saw him, but Mia said, Thats Johnny Mack. He doesnt have very many friends; we should show him kindness. That was Mia, kind to everyone, giving everyone the bene t of the doubt, and to see him here, how he treated her kindness, I have no doubt that if hes made his peace with God, then he should get there all the sooner so the Father can deal with him personally, she said. Nancy Williams, Browns mother, was the last to speak, rst reading from Browns journal, in which she talked about wanting to spend more time with her family and starting one herself. Brown also read an essay Brown wrote, telling how she sympathized with the main character of a book who was ostracized and an outcast because people judged him for his appearance. This is how she lived her life, treating others how shed want to be treated, Williams said. Ive taught all my children to do the right thing, to be kind to others, and began to think that I taught them the wrong thing but then I realized right will always be right and wrong will always be wrong. Williams then looked at Calhoun. You made your choice and I believe in accountability and I believe justice will be served, she said. J.D.

Representatives from the Bonifay Down Home Street Festival thanked the council for their support and informed the council that $3,000 was raised for the Bonifay Fire Department, $1,000 for the Police Department, $250 for the Holmes County High Schools Junior Reserve Of cers Training Corps and a nominal amount for Holmes County High Schools Project Graduation. Youve all done a fantastic job, said Mayor Lawrence Cloud. Police Chief Chris Wells informed council members that the police department obtained three vehicles through Federal Forfeiture, which means they were con scated from criminals because they were used in a crime, such as transporting illegal narcotics. Wells then requested to hire a lawyer, since the city attorney has a conict of interest, to nalize the procedures. Wells explained after procedures are completed the city can choose to keep the vehicles, donate the vehicles or auction the vehicles off. The council approved. Council members were announced their various departments needing overseers, and appointed Cloud over Administration and Police; ViceMayor Micah McCormick over Athletic Committee, Parks and Downtown Revitalization; Council member Richard Woodham over Fire, Water and Sewer; Council member Andrew Granger over Sanitation; and Council member Roger Brooks over Street, Cemetery and Clean-up. The council announced there would be a groundbreaking ceremony for their new Wastewater Treatment Facility at 11 a.m. Thursday at 611 Martin Luther King Ave. and is free and open to the public. The next regularly scheduled Bonifay City Council meeting will be at 6 p.m.April 23 at the Bonifay City Hall.

Call 638-0212. If you see me out and about when I am not working, there is a good chance youll catch me in my favorite baseball cap, which is blue and red and has a big A on the front. Whatever you do, dont say Roll Tide! Ive had at least three folks see the hat and make the Alabama assumption, and though I have no animosity toward Alabama (other than the usual SEC heckling when they are playing the Razorbacks), the hats A stands for Arkansas, as in the Double-A Texas League team, the Arkansas Travelers. So heres a little minor league baseball trivia. The Travelers, also known as the Travs, are North Little Rocks minor league franchise. They used to reside in Little Rock, but those crafty North Little Rockians stole the team away by building a spanking new stadium about ve years ago. Ray Winder Stadium, where the Travs resided in Little Rock from 1932 until 2006, had seen better days. So a special election seeking a 1-percent sales tax bought the Travs a new home north of the Arkansas River called Dickey-Stephens Park. The park was built with a partnership between the city of North Little Rock, the Travs and Little Rock nancier Warren Stephens. It was named after Jack and Witt Stephens and Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey and his brother Skeeter, who also played in the major leagues. Coincidentally, the Dickey brothers also wound up working for the Stephenses after their baseball careers ended. The Travelers were founded in 1895 and were the rst professional team to claim an entire state in 1957 when they became the Arkansas Travelers. About the time the Travs got their new stadium, Northwest Arkansas got its own Texas League team, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. They play at Arvest Stadium in Springdale and have done pretty well, considering their team mascot is a Sasquatch. Both of the Travs names, the Travelers and the Arkansas Travelers, were derived from the old folk song The Arkansas Traveler. Which brings us to the actual topic this week the song, The Arkansas Traveler, which is largely responsible for the state of Arkansas image, which is to say that thanks to a song written 160 years ago, Arkansas remains the Rodney Danger eld of United States. Our beloved columnist Perry Wells seems to enjoy introducing me as an Arkansas traveler, so I am sure he would see the humor in people mistaking my Travelers hat for an Alabama one, although I suspect Alabama fans would take much more umbrage at such a faux pas than I do its not like anyone has mistaken the hat for a Texas A&M cap, for example. The song dates back to the 1850s and has had a variety of lyrics. It is credited to Arkansas own Col. Sanford C. Faulkner, a ddle player, storyteller and former Confederate of cer. According to the encyclopedia of Arkansas website, the song has shaped the image of Arkansas since the 1840s. Thats probably not a compliment, unless you nd barefoot, wiseacre hillbillies attractive. Think The Beverly Hillbillies, Tobacco Road or even worse Evening Shade and you get the average persons image of Arkansas. Anyway, the song was adopted as the Arkansas state song from 1949 to 1963 and since 1987 has been the state historical song. I think the of cial state song now is Phil Ochs Heres To The State Of Mississippi, and if its not, then it should be. A visit to the Internet gives several versions of The Arkansas Traveler lyrics, and apparently there is even a Jerry Garcia version as well as traditional versions, of cial state lyrics written by a committee, and even childrens versions of the song. The song also was part of Laurel and Hardys Academy Award-winning short The Music Box and inspired a Vaudeville circuit comedy routine, which is echoed in Garcias song. The song also is credited with inspiring the Edward Washburn 1858 painting of the same name. By now youre probably thinking, what has any of this got to do with Florida? Well, oddly enough, when I started searching online to hear The Arkansas Traveler played, the rst version I found was Archie Lee performing at the 1956 Florida Folk Festival in White Springs. And what version is he singing? Why its the vaudeville version, of course, which is very similar to Jerry Garcias take in fact, its probably the same song. Apparently someone named Michelle Shocked also has done a version of the vaudeville lyrics on a childrens album, to boot. Arkansas gets no respect, I tell you but Im still going to root for the Travs. In my article two weeks ago, I mostly lled the space with the comments made by former Holmes County students who were recipients of school paddlings and had no room left for any summary of opinions. And I have had little comment on the article, but it did result in having a good visit with my friend, Dot Galloway. She has been a resident of Tallahassee with her children Cissy and Billy for the past three years after the death of her husband, Clyde. But she still gets the Times-Advertiser and reads the Happy Corner. She and Cissy have become a part of Thomasville Road Baptist Church, where the No. 1 paddling recipient according to Jedd McFatters informal survey, Matt Curry, serves as associate pastor/youth minister. On March 25, the pastor assigned Matt to preach at the 11 a.m. service. Dot purchased a CD of his message and shared it with me. We were both so proud of his message. The topic, The Sifting of God, was timely, well researched and backed by scripture, and supported with plenty of real-life experiences. Not only that, but his delivery was right on. No need to apologize for his Holmes County accent. Jamie McFatter Balkom won the title for the second most paddlings. (She said I paddled her, but I certainly dont remember it.) Jamie is a practicing attorney with the Manuel and Thompson personal injury law rm. She is voracious reader and is interested in becoming a writer. In addition, she is the mother of two little girls. Obviously, the school paddlings didnt do much permanent damage to these two nor any of the others who responded. As a teacher who formerly paddled and then did not, I support corporal punishment in principal. If I had it to do over, I would not paddle, but as I did toward the end of my teaching, I would ask someone else to do it. Mike Anderson, my next door teaching associate, was the best. He calmly talked to the student about his misdeed; he talked about how neither he nor I came to school to beat up on kids and then he administered the board of education to the seat of learning. That usually took care of a lot of future problems. Talking with teachers who work in districts where paddling is banned, they feel that spanking makes the dif cult task of maintaining a satisfactory learning environment possible, especially at the elementary school level. I remember when Lorna Raper was in Holmes County having come from a district in coastal southeast Florida. She said we do more teaching in Holmes County with our Bibles and our paddles than anywhere she had ever been. Some studies, however, have shown paddling can hurt mental development and can make kids more aggressive. It is also argued that it is ineffective as the same children go from grade to grade getting paddlings each year without signi cant change in their behavior. One argument for the practice is that it keeps kids in school because the alternative to paddling is suspension. When students miss school and fall behind in their work (and the misbehaving student is likely already behind), they are much more prone to give up and drop out. One lengthy commentary showed some positive bene ts from paddling. He says, and I will try to summarize, when incorporated into the communitys acceptance of punishment, corporal punishment can be legitimate and good. He goes on to say that Bonifay, unlike other places, has an intra and an interconnectedness and that when a mature well-respected person (the principal) administers the discipline, the recipient understands that this discipline is administered by his own better self and is seen as a form of self-discipline. According to this analyst, the student is subliminally emerging as a better person. I wonder if that also works in families. If I was emerging as a better person after my little Mamas switchings, it was de nitely subliminally. I would never have admitted it at the time. One local writer has expressed the opinion that mental development is stymied by corporal punishment and even suggests that Holmes Countys backwardness can be attributed to the administration of beatings in the school system. I am sure that with the permissiveness we see in our society today, corporal punishment will one day be a thing of the past, but as a former teacher, I dread that day for those in the profession, whether they paddle or not.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, April 11, 2012By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County School Board agreed April 3 to relinquish all responsibility of the old county agriculture building to the town of Ponce de Leon, pending the acceptance of the Ponce de Leon Town Council during their next regularly scheduled meeting. Ive done the title search and report that the deed is all ready to be signed over to the Town of Ponce de Leon if they are willing to accept it, which I havent heard from them, said HCSD Attorney Lucas Taylor. Holmes County Superintendent Gary Galloway said the building wasnt on school board property, but with an agreement from the landowner, the building was leased to the town of Ponce de Leon as a storage area in 1988. The school board no longer had any invested interest in the ag building but still had use for the gym, Galloway said. I dont even know if we still have squatters rights to the ag building because of the lack of necessity and use of the building by the school board. Galloway said with it being on someone elses land and with the extent of repair needed to bring the building to satisfactory usability, it was too much of a liability to the school board to continue being attached to the building. With the recent interest of the town of Ponce de Leon to expand on the use of that building, were more than willing to relinquish all ties to the building to the town of Ponce de Leon, Galloway said. Present at the school board meeting were two parents concerned with the dress code enforced at the Holmes County High School Prom. Weve got an issue with Principal Eddie Dixon singling girls out about the way they dress and not others, said parent Nikki Elmore. There were girls at the dance that werent able to dance or they were sent home because of the way they dressed, and there were others there who were dressed in less who got to enjoy their prom. The second parent, Christian Mann, said more parents say theyve had similar problems but never spoke up about it, and now that her daughter had missed out on enjoying her prom, she was there to speak to the school board. My daughter worked hard and saved up to go to prom on her own money, and she didnt even get to enjoy her prom, Mann said. She didnt even get one step into prom when she was told that she could wear her dates jacket or she could leave. Mann said she studied the dress code for prom and that she found it to be very confusing. It says that you cant have straps but you must have straps, you cant show your back, but you can and you see all these pictures of girls in the same dress or less, and they werent told to leave or cover up, Mann said. My daughter worked so hard to raise money for that dress and never even made it to the dance oor. Galloway said he promised to look into the matter extensively. Larry Zorn with the facilities division told the board they were being ned $40,000 by the Florida Education Finance Program from their last FEFP and transportation audit. It wasnt clear about the processing of the matrix, and there were places that needed initialing that werent, Zorn said. It was clearly just a clerical error, and were asking permission to appeal the ne. According to the report, six of the 10 students in our ESE Support Levels 4 and 5 sample had exceptions involving reporting errors or records that were not properly or accurately prepared. Of the 131 students in our student transportation sample, 69 had exceptions involving their reported ridership classication or eligibility for state transportation. Weve moved to new standards of documentation, and the adjustments to the new system have been less than smooth, but its something that will be worked out with time.

Gary Galloway Holmes County superintendentFrom Staff ReportsBONIFAY Holmes County Health Department celebrated their rst anniversary for Extended Hours Clinic Monday, April 2, in the lobby in the HC health department. Several health care agencies came to celebrate with us, said Outreach Specialist for HCHD Moises Vallejos. We had a good response from the community, many health department clients were there, several local civic leaders, people running for public ofce, friends and family of the health department where there also. Holly Holt gave a report on services rendered at the Extended Hours Clinic, with a total of 1,749 clients served a year, averaging about 145 clients a month. There are no medical practices in Holmes County offering services after 5 p.m. on weekdays other than the ER at DMH. Extended Hours Clinic is possible through a Federal grant called Low Income Pool, established to ensure continued government support for the provision of health care services to Medicaid, underinsured and uninsured populations. Holmes CHD applied about a year an a half ago to provide primary care services through extended clinic hours providing much needed care to individuals that need a primary care medical home, Vallejos said. This project will also assist in ER diversion. Other services will include community outreach, case management, on-site mental health counseling and chronic disease identication/treatment with an emphasis on diabetes. Holmes County Health Department offers various services to the community consisting of primary care, dental, school health program, environmental health services, communicable disease surveillance, family planning services, and immunizations.

Submit your photos to news@ chipleypaper.com.Hook harvestPhotos Special to Florida Freedom NewspapersThis sturgeon was one of 11 netted, studied and released last week to determine any after-effects from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Dylan Cazalas, 8, helped his father take this gobbler last weekend in Washington County. The sherman paid the price of admission and walked to the end of the pier and hooked up his Sibiki bait rig. Everyone thinks Sibiki means something in Japanese, but I asked a lady of Japanese descent, and she said it meant nothing in her native tongue. The sherman unraveled his king rod equipped with 30-pound test line, a swivel a length of wire of about two feet and two treble hooks, one arranged one over the other to assure a hook-up if the rst missed its mark. Below him were thousands of greenback herring and cigar minnows that one sherman described as being so large they had their own ZIP code. The sherman lowered the bait rig into the clouds of bait under the pier, hooking up several herring and cigar minnows. Picking out the one he gured had the best chance of being eaten alive, he hooked the top treble hook through its tail, leaving the lower hook to swing free. Usually this free-swinging hook will be the one that foul hooks the king, thus catching a sh that would otherwise have gotten a meal and gone on its merry way. The other baits that were not chosen to be shed with were placed into an ice chest to be used later. Dead bait sometimes can be as effective as live ones, especially on the days the bait is just not under the pier to be caught. Herring and cigar minnows seek the safety of the pilings of the pier hoping the Spanish and kings and bonito will not come under the pier to eat them. On some days there are so many under the pier, it is impossible to see the bottom. Most shermen, after tossing the cigar minnow out as far as possible, will not put their rods down and instead hold on for dear life. To lean a rod against the rail is an invitation to lose several hundred dollars of high-priced reel and rod. When a king hits, it usually is a violent affair and the sherman had better be holding on with both hands. Fighting a big sh off a pier requires the cooperation of all the shermen on the pier. Those not hooked up need to get out of the way of the sherman who is. After the sh is subdued to the point of exhaustion, another sherman will assist with a gaff on a rope to hook the sh and drag it on board as the line is not suf cient to lift the sh from the water. Thats about all there is to it. Whether you are a sherman of just a bystander, it is worth the price of admission to just walk out on one of our piers here in Bay County and watch the action.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net Photos special to Florida Freedom NewspapersWhopper Spanish like this one have become common in recent years thanks to catch limitations that have allowed more sh to reach maturity. They take many of the same lures that kings like, though they usually are found nearer the beaches and piers. Below, large king mackerel are not the exception, though this is a nice one. MACKEREL 2 WA Y SBoth species of macks come to Panhandle earlyBy FRANK SARGEANTSpecial to Florida Freedom Newspapers franksargeant@charter.net Except for the paint job and the size, youd have a hard time telling Spanish mackerel from their larger cousins, the king mackerel. They look alike and act alike, and both are fast as greased lightning. Both also have arrived in Panhandle area waters early this year thanks to the incredibly warm winter and will provide action through mid-October. Heres a look at how to go about tangling with these toothy speedsters.FIT FOR A KINGKings generally travel schooled by size. The snakes of 7 to 12 pounds swarm together in the largest masses, usually around reef lines or directly around the largest bait sh schools. It is the migration of the bait that brings the annual migration of the game sh thread ns and Spanish sardines are their primary targets. Sometimes these guys are only 1 or 2 miles off the beaches. The larger kings, 15 pounds and on up to the maximum size of 40 and even 50 pounds, more often are found around wrecks and offshore ledges, though a few jumbos also prowl the outfall of the major passes. They home in on larger baits, blue runners, cigar minnows, lady sh, even young Spanish and blue sh. The smaller kings usually are easy pickings, easily located because there often is a eet of boats trolling around the larger schools. If you can get out there on a calm day in your 17-foot center console, you can catch them. Just join the trolling circle, put out a 5to 6-inch chrome single-hook spoon like the Drone on a downrigger or No. 2 planer, and you soon will be in business. Remember to stay in the trolling pattern. Dont drive your boat through the bait sh, or you will ruin the action for everybody and get a well-deserved cussing from the charterboat skippers for doing so. Bigger kings can be more of a challenge. Most of the largest are caught by slowtrolling large live baits, with blue runners a favorite for their durability. Foot-long lady sh, mullet and other inshore species also attract big bites at times. Most anglers use stinger rigs on these big baits; a dangling treble, size 6 in triple-x strong, is trailed back the side of the bait on a No. 6 wire and sometimes a couple of trebles are used on larger baits. These extra hooks prevent kings from chopping off the tail of the bait as they often do without getting hooked. Kings are not dif cult to handle after the rst run. But that rst run of a really big one can clean a spool in seconds, so reels capable of handling plenty of line are a must. Most anglers like at least 300 yards on the spool tests of 20 to 25 are common in spinning gear, 30 to 40 in conventional. Keep your drag light, even with heavy tests. SPANISH SURPRISEAlthough Spanish mackerel never reach the maximum size of kings, it has become fairly common in recent years to catch them up to 7 pounds, unheard of 20 years ago when heavy commercial harvest made it rare for a Spanish every to reach its third birthday. These days there are plenty of 5-year-old sh out there, and they run and ght just like the king sh. Spanish are great sh for kids and inexperienced anglers because they seem almost eager to take the hook at times, and if the rst one misses the second or third does not. Spanish average around 2 to 3 pounds so heavy gear is de nitely not called for. A 7-foot medium action spinning rod, 2500-sized reel and a spool of 10-pound test micro ber is the ticket, allowing the sh to show their stuff and yet with enough capacity to handle the occasional 6 to 7 pounder. Again, pier tackle needs to be signi cantly heavier to ease control of the sh from the span, but even here be sure to set your drag light to avoid pull-outs. Though Spanish have sharp teeth, they also have sharp eyes. You can catch them on live baits with No. 2 wire, but you will get a lot more hits on arti cials if you go to clear uorocarbon or hard mono in 25 to 30 pound test. Tie to the micro ber with a double uniknot. Avoid snaps and swivels because macks sometimes home in on them, apparently thinking they are extra tiny glass minnows, and will cut you off.FROM HOOKING TO COOKINGBoth kings and Spanish are good on the table with proper preparation. They have a more shy taste than some species. But get them on ice immediately when caught and cook them without freezing, and they can make excellent eating. Fillet, skin and remove the red line and you have gotten rid of most of that shy taste the remaining llets are good grilled, baked or broiled or in an Italian tomato and parmesan casserole, among many other recipes.SIZE AND BAG LIMITSThe limit on Spanish is a generous 15 sh daily, minimum size 12 inches to the fork. Note that small king sh look very much like Spanish, but the limit on kings is two daily, 24 inches to the fork; you can differentiate the species because the Spanish has a black dorsal n, while the king dorsal is blue-gray.

Wallace TALLADEGA, HERE WE COME Cathrines PIT STOP Times-Advertiser to provide live coverage of Aarons Dream WeekendBy CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Ladies and gentlemen, were going to Talladega. The one and only Cecilia Spears and I have gotten the goahead from our editor and the credentials from the speedway. There will be live updates from my Twitter account @ catspitstop all weekend as we attend the Aarons Dream Weekend at Talladega, Ala. Because there were no races this weekend, I gured what better time to give my fellow NASCAR fans a brief history on the Talladega Superspeedway? Known as NASCARs most competitive track, not that long ago it was just farmland next to two abandoned airport runways the government had sold to the city of Talladega after World War II. One day, Anniston, Ala., insurance executive Bill Ward, a race car driver and fan, and William H.G. (Bill) France, who happens to be the founder of NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation, found the land in North Talladega County following a causal conversation in Daytona in the mid-1960s. There was a meeting with then-mayor of Talladega James Hardwick and some of the other city of cials in a restaurant in Anniston in 1966. France asked the group to think about putting the track at the site, and after a trip to the Firecracker 400 in Daytona, they agreed to the track, which was at rst called the Alabama International Motor Speedway. In 1989, it was renamed Talladega Superspeedway after they saw the economic impact race fans had on Daytona. The track is 2.66 miles long, has banking of 33 degrees on each end, 18 degree banking in the tri-oval and is four lanes wide. Many of the cars have reached speeds above 220 miles per hour in the backstretch, which is nearly 4,000 feet long. The all-reserved 212-acre in eld has room for thousands, and the grandstand seats an astonishing 143,231 people. Construction began on the 2,000-acre speedway site on May 23, 1968. The rst race was held on Saturday, Sept. 13, 1969, the Bama 400 Grand Touring, where Ken Rush drove his Chevrolet Camaro into Victory Lane. Then on Sunday, Sept. 14, 1969, the rst Grand National race (now the NASCAR Sprint Cup), Richard Brickhouse became the rst driver to win a major race at the Talladega 500 (now the Good Sams Club 500). That rst race didnt go off without some worries. At practice for that rst major race, there were problems with the tires holding out for more than just a few laps. Talladega is known as one of the fastest, most competitive superspeedways in the world for one reason: In that rst practice, Charlie Glotzbach won the pole position with a speed of 199.466 miles per hour. The tires were declared unsafe by the Professional Drivers Association led by Richard Petty because the speeds the drivers were going werent allowing the tires to hold out. But France knew there were thousands of fans who had traveled to Talladega to see the race, so it went on, using some of the drivers who raced the day before and the drivers who had decided not to race in the boycott. All 500 miles of that rst race were run without any major accidents. France decided after that rst race at Talladega to rain check the house for any future race at Daytona and Talladega. This action that France took broke up the PDA, and it dissolved two years later. Talladega has been a place for many of the drivers to set and break many records over the years. It wasnt too long before the speedway became known for it speed and tough driving conditions. Being one of the fastest and most competitive tracks, it has played a very big role in the career of many of the top drivers of today. Pete Hamilton was the rst driver to win two of the major events in 1970 driving Plymouths by Petty Enterprises. The rst driver to win three years in a row was David Person. He won those three races in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Wining both races in 1975 and the spring event in 1976 and the race in 1980, Buddy Baker was the rst four-time winner at Talladega. Drivers who have since joined Baker in that category are Jeff Gordon, Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison. In 1987, the world stock car record was made by Bill Elliott, when he clocked a speed of 212.809 miles per hour during qualifying. The record for a 500 mile stock car record was made in 1997 during a caution-free spring Winston Select 500 with a speed of 188.354 miles per hour by Mark Martin. He also won this race. The only person to win 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Talladega was the late great Intimidator (Dale Earnhardt Sr.), he won those races in 1983, 1984, two races in 1990, 1991, two races in 1993, 1995 1999 and 2000. The Diehard 500 became the rst 500-mile race at Talladega to have 1,000 of cial lead changes in 1993. This is a feat because the track was only 25 years old at the time, and the Diehard 500 was only 188 laps. The rst sell-out in Talladega history was when they moved the second event of the year from the summer to October in 1997. When the race was moved to October, it was placed into the schedule for the 10 Championship Cup races, which Talladega has enjoyed since 1997.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3By Bobby Ray RackleySpecial To Extra EDITORS NOTE: This essay was submitted by Bobby Ray Rackley, an inmate at Graceville Correctional Facility. His essay won a writing contest based on the theme, How To Make A Difference. I believe there are many ways that I can make a difference in this world. However, I believe the most important is the impact and in uence I have on those around me. I strive to be a positive in uence on everyone that I come in contact with on a day-to-day basis. I am a rm believer in the age-old saying Lead by example. Therefore the best way for me to make a difference is to be the absolute best man that I can be, and encourage others to follow my example. I believe all of us have the power within ourselves to change the world. The problem is most of us have absolutely no idea how to begin to accomplish such a noble goal. How many of us even take the time out from the rat race and our hectic schedules to ask ourselves how can I make the world a better place? most of us automatically assume there is nothing I can do I am just one person, one voice, out of millions. The fact of the matter is, though, change begins with one. If I want to change the world then it starts with me. I have to be the type of person that I expect others to be. I have to treat others the way I want to be treated. This life principle is known as the Golden Rule and I can think of no better principle to live by. I can make a difference in tomorrow by each life I touch today. The idea of making a difference in the world is not so far fetched. In fact just the opposite, its quite plausible. It doesnt take all that much to make a positive impact and be a good in uence to others. Little things mean a lot more than most people think. Just a kind word or a smile can make a difference and brighten someones day. I try to smile often after all smiles are contagious. Have you ever tried talking to someone that was smiling at you? You cant help but smile back at them. Even when you are in a bad mood, the smile is automatic when someone is smiling at you, it just come natural. I like to speak kind words and compliment others. It is amazing to watch the transformation on someones face and how they just light up when you shower them with praise. A few kind words can lift someones spirit and change their whole outlook on the day. The people around us have a lot more in uence on our lives than we realize. Im sure you have heard it said you can tell who a man is, by who his friends are. Many young people in todays society blame their mistakes on peer pressure. They are just trying to t in, or be one of the guys. This is proof that we all are in uenced by the people around us. I believe deep in my heart if I had more positive role models growing up, I would not be in prison today. My in uences were alcoholics, and street hustlers, and that is just what I became. I thank God that he allowed me to live long enough to see the error of my ways. I thank God for the wisdom I gave gained. I now realize that I am a in uence on the people around me. This means I have a huge responsibility thats why it is so important for me to be the best man I can be, not only for myself but for the ones that I may in uence, that call me friend. I once heard it said that who we were is who we are; our past has shaped us into who we are today. Therefore, how we live today determines who we are tomorrow. The bible says that we reap what we sow, therefore I choose to sow good crops like kindness, compassion, generosity, friendship, and love. I sow good crops today so that I can reap good crops in my future. The only time I ever want to look down on my brother is when I am helping him up. I can make a difference just by being a good man. In closing I would like to offer a word of encouragement to all who read this. Join me in my mission to be the best I can be and make it your mission as well. Think of all the ones that we may in uence as a group instead of just an individual, A chain reaction of good that can go throughout the world. Yes, I can make a difference and with your help, we can change the world by the way we in uence others. With the emergence of springtime, comes the arrival of allergies. Although the landscape is lush, many people experience the beauty that comes with the warmer weather as well as the bothersome allergy symptoms. Pets can also be affected by allergies and it is important to be mindful of any symptoms that your pet might be displaying. People sneeze and wheeze with allergies, while dogs tend to itch and scratch, says Dr. Adam Patterson, clinical assistant professor and a board certi ed dermatologist at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. The hallmark sign of allergic skin disease is itch that can be manifested as licking, chewing, rubbing, biting, scooting, head shaking, and/or scratching. Typically, the face, ears, paws, armpits, groin, and rump are the most affected sites. Patterson explains that animals with allergic skin disease are highly prone to recurring skin and/or ear infections involving bacteria and yeast. Infections can cause increased itch, redness, pimples, blackheads, scabs, dander, hair loss, skin thickening, and odor. Horses many times will break out in hives. Animals tend to be allergic to many of the same things people are hypersensitive to such as pollen, mold, dust, house dust mite, and foodstuffs, Patterson explains. An exception would be eas the most common thing dogs and cats are allergic to. Despite this, many people are in eanial and refuse to believe just a few ea bites can be triggering the itch response in their pet. Likewise, horse owners may not be aware how just a few insect bites could be responsible for or contributing to itchy skin disease. Allergic skin disease can be mistaken for many other forms of skin disease. A veterinary dermatologist is trained to work with primary care veterinarians to get down to the bottom of how to best diagnose and manage skin and ear disease, including allergies, in animals. See www.acvd. org for more information. It is important to understand that allergies can be managed, but not cured, just as with humans. The goal is to reduce the extent and severity of signs, not completely eliminate them. Management regimens might include increased frequency of bathing (washing pollens off the skin surface), antimicrobials or antibiotics, ea prevention, fatty acids, antihistamines, change in diet, steroids, and immunotherapy, also known as desensitization or hyposensitization. The use of the latter can be determined through a good step-wise diagnostic approach along with allergy skin testing and administered by way of allergy shots or oral allergy drops, says Patterson. When it is time to take your pet in for allergy skin testing? Typically, dogs should have allergy symptoms for at least 5-6 months out of the year before considering skin testing for environmental allergies, which include reactivity to pollen, molds, house dust mite, and house dust, in order for the diagnostic tests and treatment to be cost effective over the long haul, Patterson recommends. Patterson explains that rainfall cuts down on airborne pollen and may provide itch relief to pets, but at the same time rain may cause plants to produce more pollen over the next few weeks. Indeed, rain fall might worsen ea and mold allergies because moisture and humidity are favorable to eas and mold. Of course, rain has no effect on food-related allergic skin diseases. Given the mild winter and lack of national weather fronts during the 2011-2012 seasons, pollen is likely to be at an all-time high this year. Consequently, there likely will be many itchy pets this year, says Patterson. Allergies are certainly not an uncommon thing to see in pets. It is important to be aware of the symptoms and to notify a veterinarian when they persist. For more information please visit vetmed.tamu.edu/ large-animal-hospital/ dermatology/allergies.

Throughout the Old and New Testament we are commanded to help those in need, whether they are widows, orphans, immigrants, or the impoverished. Nowhere are we advised to question whether they are lazy or why they in dire straits. We are simply told to help them. The Bible even institutes particular social programs to help the poor. Farmers are instructed leave the gleanings for the poor. (Leviticus 19:9) Perhaps if we had such wise social programs economies, there would be less poverty, or at least there might be less misery amongst the impoverished. It is probably true that we shall always have the poor with us, and this makes it more important, not less, that we should minister to their needs.The poor are shunned even by their neighbors, butthe rich have many friends. It is a sin to despise ones neighbor, but blessed isthe one who is kind tothe needy.

SNYDERWhenever I am out in public, I try conducting myself with the greatest of care knowing that people are watching. The thing that bothers me the most is that many people have never mastered the ne art of how to dress in public. Some people have never been taught how to dress, let alone how to dress in public. Whenever I go to the mall, and believe me it is as seldom as possible, I cannot help noticing some of these people. What I cannot understand is why young men wear pants too big for them and young women wear pants too small for them. Perhaps we ought to get a little group together and try to reverse this trend. Somebody got the wrong information. I was in the mall the other day and noticed several young men in front of me with trousers several sizes too big and were constantly falling down. One hand was grabbing their trousers while the other hand was hanging onto a cellphone. I wanted to go up and tell them that there is this marvelous new invention called The Belt that would solve the problem that they were having. Once they have The Belt, they can put it on and forget about their trousers falling down to their ankles. If there is anything I do not want to see it is somebodys trouser falling down to their ankles. Criticize me if you want to, but I simply cannot not follow these young men walking down in mall. By the time I cover the space of three stores, I am a nervous wreck, wondering when those trousers are actually going to fall. Young women are no different. It seems to me that most young women purchase their entire wardrobe when they are in the rst grade. At that time, the clothing ts very nicely. By the time these young women hit the 10th grade, those rst-grade clothing are not only out of style, but t no more. Where are their mothers? I know the economy is bad, but really, is it so bad that people cannot afford to upgrade their wardrobe, as they get older and consequently bigger? Shouldnt there be some sale on mirrors these days? If I were a congressman in Washington, D.C., I would work very hard to pass a bill that would make it illegal to walk out of your house on any given morning without rst looking into the mirror to see if everything is covered. That is the kind of change I can believe in. As I get older, it gets more dif cult to conduct myself as a gentleman because there is so much I do not want to see. Last week I had to return an item to a store and was unprepared for what I was to encounter. I assumed I was well prepared for the day. I went through the normal routine of exercising my eyes to look upward. I try my best when I am out in public to look into the eyes of people, especially those of the gentler sex. This particular day I had really met my match. I stood in line waiting to return my item and I was not thinking too much about the process. I was humming to myself some hymn that was on my mind at the time and was not paying attention to the surroundings. As I say, I trained my eyes to look upward when I am out in public. Eventually, it was my turn to go to the counter and return the item. I walked up and was aghast. I said to myself, Look at the eyes, look at the eyes, look at the eyes. For some reason my eyes were not paying any attention whatsoever. All those years of training seem to have gone out the window. My eyes were in a staring mode and I did not know how to break it. It really is not my fault; I think people should take personal responsibility for their person when they go out in public. They should make sure that everything is prim and proper because you never know what you are going to run into in any given day. For a moment, I had forgotten what I was at the counter for, I tried to shift my eyes into a higher level and it was all I could do to communicate what I needed to communicate at the time. But my eyes, oh, my eyes. They certainly were not helping me in this regard. I might as well come clean and confess. As I walked up to the counter to return my item I could not help but notice that the woman behind the counter was wearing, and you will not believe me, a beard. Yes, I said a beard, whiskers and all. I could not believe it at rst. I thought maybe my eyes were trying to get back at me for being so harsh on them the last few months. But no, there in full view of everybody, including my pair of eyes, was a woman with a beard any man would have been proud to wear. All I could think of at the time was what Job said. I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? (Job 31:1 KJV). My motto: be careful, little eyes. where you stare. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 352-687-4240 or email jamessnyder2@att.net.
