By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CH IPL EY The Panhandle Area Educational Consortium is looking at a $1 million budget cut, thanks to Gov. Rick Scotts 2012-13 state budget, which was signed into law Tuesday. The PAEC was hit with a $1 mil lion budget reduction when the governor vetoed line items in the $69.9 billion state budget, PAEC Executive Director Pat McDaniel said Friday at a news conference in Chipley, but the new budget de creases funding for the states three educational consortia serving rural school districts. He vetoed four different line items, but the two I was con cerned about were ones we had been getting for years, McDaniel said. The items were cut with no explanation. The consortium represents rural school districts in Walton, Washington, Holmes, Jackson, Calhoun, Gadsen, Madison, Jef ferson, Liberty, Taylor, Wakulla, Franklin and Gulf counties as well as the Florida State University Col lege of Educations developmental research school in Tallahassee.. A wide variety of services are pro vided to rural districts by the con sortium, from insurance to teacher training to impact testing for ath letes to test for concussions. Rural schools will feel PAEC budget cuts See P AEC A3 Our budget had cleared the legislative process after careful scrutiny by the House and Senate. I want to believe it was an oversight by someone on the governors staff.Pat McDaniel, PAEC executive director CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Covenant Hospice was wel comed as sponsor and guest speaker for this months Holmes County Chamber of Com merce Breakfast held at the chamber building on Thursday. Were here for so much more for comfort, care and pain management, said Terri Glass, community educator from Covenant Hospice in Marianna. We do what we can to utilize every available resource and prepare the patient and the family of what to expect. Glass said that they understand that it can be taxing on someone to just perform the simplest tasks, like getting ready to go to the doctor. SUPPORT Here for HC Chamber welcomes Covenant Hospice speakerC EC ILI A SP EA R S | Times-Advertiser Terri Glass of Covenant Hospice in Marianna speaks to Holmes County Chamber of Commerce members on Thursday. From Staff ReportsC OLLI E R V ILL E, T enn. The par ents of Ben McDaniel, a 30-yearold cave diver that went missing after last seen diving in Vortex Springs almost two years ago, rescinded their $30,000 reward for fear of inexperienced divers getting killed in search of their son. This decision was made short ly after the death of 43-year-old Larry Higginbotham last month. Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce reported there was no indi cation that Higginbotham was in search of McDaniel when he drowned. Marianna Fire Chief Byron Bennett assisted in the dive to recover Higginbothams body and said that rescinding the re ward was for the best. There have been a large number of expert divers from this area and all over the country who have searched every nook and cranny and inch of that cave and unfortunately we strongly believe that he is not in there, said Bennett. Theres so many people out there today that want to go out there and try to help and when you get out there in a situation as dangerous as it is in those springs out in Vortex you dont want to become the next victim. $30,000 missing person reward rescinded See COVENANT HOSPICE A2 INSIDE See a schedule of Relay for Life events, A2 CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com B O N I FAY Bonifay City Council agreed to look into various ways to help the local Dixie Youth during their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday night, starting with their enormous light bill. Council member Richard Woodham explained that there were quite a few complaints about the lights being left on at the baseball eld all night and this was causing the electric bill to sky-rocket. Calvin Sherrouse with the local Dixie Youth explained that it was very easy to locate and activate the switch to turn on the lights and Woodham conrmed that anyone could do it as soon as they gured out how. Weve got 22 teams using the park and 530 scheduled events for this year alone, said Sherrouse. Were ran by volunteer work only and our expenses are franchise fees, insurance on the players, equipment costs, awards and the awards banquet just to name a few of the expenses. We just cant afford a big light bill.C A T H RI NE LAMB | The News Aydan Tate, left, Aden Cooper and William Yancey, all fth graders at Bonifay Middle School, enjoy visiting at Falling Waters State Park on Friday during the 9 th annual Legends & Lore Festival.

Were here as support, said Glass. To give a helping hand because it can be exhausting sometimes and if we can relieve even a little bit of stress it makes all the difference. Glass encouraged everyone to ll out their custom 5 Wishes packet, which is a step-by-step living will that Covenant Hospice provides free of charge. I know this isnt something that people are comfortable talking about but you never know when you may go, were not guaranteed tomorrow, said Glass. This gives your family a clear list of instructions, stating who you want your health care surrogate be if you are unable to speak for yourself and this gives your family members the comfort of knowing that theyre carrying out your wishes. Its just one less thing for your family members to worry about. There is also a more intricate will outline that is now available through the Covenant Hospice upon request. For more information visit their website at www. covenanthospice.org Ive worked with Covenant Hospice for over ve years now and have met some amazing people and families and regardless of the patients ability to pay we still provide the services, said Jennifer Grif n, Division Manager for Covenant Hospice Marianna. Never have I ever felt as much ful llment as I have with this organization. Grif n stressed that the organization isnt at all reimbursable by insurance. We even have child care services available, Grif n said. Its hard for adults but its especially hard on the children to try to cope with the sickness and death of a loved one. Grif n said they are always in need of donations and volunteers. She said that you could also dedicate a donation in honor or memory of someone and it could be speci ed that the money donated would have to stay within Holmes County. If you dont specify, then the donation goes into the Covenant Hospice pot and then it goes anywhere, Grif n said. If you want to make sure it stays in the community to help local people then youve got to specify thats what its for. Volunteers are still needed, said Grif n, even if its only an hour a month. Whatever the talent we will utilize it somewhere, said Grif n. You have no idea how far just a little bit can go. Whether its cutting someones lawn or just giving them a call in the evening to see if they need anything it could mean the world to someone. Grif n announced this years upcoming Garden Gala 2012, which will be $60 per individual or $100 per couple held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 at the Donald E. Price Activity Center at 4792 Highway 90 in Marianna. All proceeds from this event will be going to fund the unfunded or under-funded programs of Covenant Hospice, which includes Bereavement, Chaplain Services, Childrens Support and Volunteer Services. The event includes an evening lled with art, tastings, exhibits, live music and dinner. There will also be featured hand painted terra cotta pots, custom constructed Adirondack chairs, benches and swings hand-painted by local artists. Last year we were able to raise over $60,000 from a multitude of sponsors, Grif n said. If youve never been we encourage you to come. She said that she was impressed with the amount of support that shes seen, especially from Holmes County. We love coming to Holmes County, Grif n said. The amount of hospitality we receive while were here is amazing. Were hoping to see some Holmes County people at the Gala this year. This year she said they would be having a tip competition where members of the local community would volunteer to be servers at the event and see how who can receive the most tips. All proceeds go to Covenant Hospice, said Grifn. Weve got Doctors Memorial Hospitals Administrator JoAnn Baker, but we still need many more servers. During the Gala there will be a vacation package raf ed to stay at Five Palms in San Destin between the months of September and February with enough room to comfortably accommodate to 18 people, this is one of the many donations that are offered during this event as raf es. Covenant Hospice is a not for pro t organization dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive end-of-life care to patients and their loved ones during time of life limiting illness based on a need, not their ability to pay, said Angela Jackson, Development Specialist for Covenant Hospice Marianna. With the help of your donation, Covenant Hospice of Marianna will be able to continue providing special care in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson and Washington County. A gift to Covenant Hospice is truly an investment in our mission to add life to days when days can no longer be added to life.

Our budget had cleared the legislative process after careful scrutiny by the House and Senate. I want to believe it was an oversight by someone on the governors staff. The budget contained a billion more education dollars than the 201112 budget where the state lopped $1.3 billion from education, a fact the governor stressed in a April 17 news release from his of ce. Scott signed the budget while visiting an elementary school in St. Johns County. Over the last year I have traveled the state to hear from Floridians what issues they care about most. Thats why this budget should be known as an education budget, Scott said in the release. The intention of consortiums are to share services and pool resource to achieve savings across the district, and we agree with those intentions, said Lane Wright, the governors press secretary, in an email on Friday. School districts already have funds available from the Florida Education Finance Program to take care of the types of expenses they were requesting be funded through the consortium. The services offered by the consortium are things that can and should be paid from those district funds, Wright said. The PAEC is de nitely a resource for all of us, said Dr. Sandra Cook, superintendent of Washington County School District and chairperson of the PAEC board of directors. The bottom line is our children are going to be impacted by this. PAEC, along with North East Florida Educational Consortium and the Heartland Educational Consortium collectively represent 35 rural school districts and over 150,000 students by providing teacher training, teacher certi cation tracking, grant applications, risk management, cooperative purchasing, Race to the Top initiatives, and a variety of other essential services the districts would otherwise have dif culty performing, according to a news release from the PAEC. The three consortia lost at total of $1,445,000 in the budget cuts, McDaniel said. McDaniel said the PAEC was a great model of how to save the government money. Through the cooperative programs provided by the PAEC and other consortia, rural districts do not have to spend money hiring specialists or sending teachers to expensive in-service training. McDaniel used in-service training as a prime example of how PAEC saves districts, and the state, money. The state average cost per hour for inservice training is $185 per hour, McDaniel said. Through the PAEC, the average cost per hour for in-service training is $12.50. When multiplied by the number of in-service hours completed since 2001, 2,032200, PAEC shows savings of $350,554,500 in in-service hours alone. The PAEC was created in 1967 for one purpose, to save the state time and money, McDaniel said. We are a solid return on the states investment, he said. We know without a doubt we make a difference for our districts. The budget reduction will primarily impact the consortiums overhead and salaries, McDaniel said. The consortium could be forced to lay off employees as a result of the decrease in funding. PAEC has 57 employees, McDaniel said. The board of directors has not yet come up with a plan for making up for the budgetary de cit, but they are putting their heads together to look for solutions. Cook said the recent mandate from the state that districts implement teacher and principal evaluations is a good example of a service the PAEC provides. I dont have an R&D team in Washington County, Cook said. We depend on the PAEC to help come up with tools we need to meet these mandates. This is very disturbing to us. I dont have the personnel to do inservice training, said Tommy McClellan, superintendent of Calhoun County School District. Our district has seen $1 million in budget cuts over the past three years. McClellan said the PAEC offers superintendents a forum to get resources and share information. Its like a family reunion, he said of the consortiums monthly meetings. We depend on each other, and we depend on the PAEC. PAEC from page A1 RANDAL SEYLER | The Times-Advertiser Dr. Sandra Cook, superintendent of the Washington County School District and board chairperson of the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium visits with staff at the PAEC board room during Fridays news conference. The consortium is facing $1 million in budget cuts this year. The city agreed to look into possible ways of locking up the access to the light switches. Mayor Lawrence Cloud suggested looking into a way to place a request donation on the monthly city utility bill so that citizens of Bonifay could help the teams with their expenses. It wouldnt be much, just a dollar or two each month added to their utility bill and these kids would be good to go for the year, said Cloud. I know making it voluntary will make it easy for some to say no, but I believe that the folks here would be more than willing to help our youth. City Attorney Lucas Taylor said that he didnt see any reason why they couldnt add a voluntary donation to the utility bill but that he would do some research into the matter and bring his ndings to the next city council meeting. Cloud gave an update at his last meeting about the expansion of the 911 to accommodate to their new equipment. If the Board of County Commissioners is okay with it I would suggest allowing them to move and take down a few walls to allow for more room for their new equipment, said Cloud. Council member Roger Brooks said that if the 911 Department was willing to take on the task themselves that it shouldnt be a problem for the city to accommodate them with the additional space. The city agreed that if the BOCC approved of the expansion that the city would allow it. Cloud told the council that he had taken a look at the budget and that it was time to really start tightening the belts. Most of our departments are over 50 percent of their annual budget already, said Cloud. We really need to be tightening our belts where we can. The city agreed to get rid of their old police and junk cars for as much pro t as they could get out of them. DIXIE YOUTH from page A1

Call 638-0212. Since we are getting into election season and the announcements of candidates for various of ces are starting to roll in, I thought Id take a minute and give a Newspaper Article 101 tutorial in this weeks column. Ive already gotten several announcements, and I have had several candidates promise forthcoming announcements. What I mean by announcement is an article about 300 to 500 words long saying John Brown is running for county dog catcher, followed by a few paragraphs about John Brown and why he would be the best dog catcher ever, John Browns life history, his family tree and then a nal paragraph saying again why he is the best thing since hot chocolate. Most of the self-generated announcements have been ne, while some that have been written by a third party for candidates have lacked some basic information. Normally I would contact the candidate to get the missing information, but part of the missing information I needed was a way to contact the person, such as a phone number. So Rule No. 1 include contact information in case we need to call you back for more information. Normally this isnt a problem; most people who email, fax or drop off announcements to us have that information available. Rule No. 1 also applies to any announcement you bring us here at the paper, not just candidate announcements. Though I am mainly speaking about political announcements, the formula pretty much holds true for any kind of announcement you might care to send in to the paper. Most people know the Five Ws and One H rule Who, What, When, Where, Why and How but you would be surprised how often we see these basic building blocks left out of press releases. If you are submitting an article announcing the churchs upcoming potluck supper or the high school bands next concert, then the ve Ws are pretty much all you need to tell us. For example, The High School Bands (who) spring concert (what) will be at 5 p.m. Tuesday (when) at the high school cafeteria (where). The concert is a fundraiser for the bands trip to the Rose Bowl (why). How gets a little complicated and usually doesnt make it into basic news releases. In fact, usually its the how that gets journalists in trouble when they try to explain things normal humans arent meant to understand, like nuclear physics, rocket science or why anybody over the age of 14 would go to a Twilight movie. How is good to put in your press release if you are running for of ce although mainly the how should be focused on how you are going to make things better, or different. Unless youre running for president, you dont want to focus on how bad a person your opponent is its better to focus on what is your applicable experience and how would you bring that experience to your new of ce. Which brings us to Rule No. 2 write as much as you want, and well chop it down to t. Its much better to overwrite than underwrite, especially on political announcements. Include your family, profession, education, church af liation, political experience (if any), political af liation (if it matters), your opinion on how you can do the job better than the guy whos doing it now, just go crazy. If you write a short and sweet announcement, that is great, too, but be sure to give us the contact information (see Rule No. 1). Incidentally, you dont have to run for of ce to write an article for either the Washington County News or the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. If you have an interesting hobby, job or family history, feel free to write about it. If you send us something and it doesnt get published within a week or so, be sure to check with us to make sure we actually received it (especially if it was sent via email) and to make sure we havent forgotten about it. As you might guess, we get a lot of email and snail mail each week, and sometimes things fall through the cracks. Also always ll out the subject line on your email. If we get nosubject emails, a lot of times they are treated as spam if you put Attention Randal or Attention Cecilia in the subject head it helps us know its not a spam. If it is a local article, we want to publish it. And if we cant t it all in the newspaper, well put it online for sure (especially if it involves a lot of photos).

Country needs to address major concerns Dear Editor, Everybody would like to have health care. The only problem is the cost of everything is out of sight. When you pay $10 for a Tylenol tablet or $400 for a blood test, it is a little high. I can go on I think you get the idea why a lot of people do not have medical insurance. The hospitals and the money you pay for prescriptions do not make any sense at all. I call it a license to steal. I think they should be stopped from stealing from everybody. I want to know if the ObamaCare goes through, how are they going to provide medical help for everyone? Social Security and Medicaid already are having problems helping everybody they have now. If they put everybody on ObamaCare, they have to get money from somewhere. I know I wouldnt want to pay higher taxes because of it. I think everybody pays too much now. Why? So they can have parties and go to Las Vegas at out expense again. I also noticed lately on TV there are talk show hosts and even people in Washington, D.C., who have a problem with name-calling. The main target is a woman in general. Calling Sarah Palin obscene names. Saying bad things about her children. There were other women also. I think it is rude and arrogant. Where are all the womens groups that are supposed to stand up for you? I guess they are scared to stand up for anyone. If that is the case, they should stay home and knit or something else. We should not have to be insulted and not do anything about it. This country is not standing up for our rights. We are getting weaker all the time. Another thing about the cross. I cant believe they are trying to pass a law you are not allowed to wear one. Where do they get off even thinking of a thing like that? I would like to know what pinheads are trying to pass that kind of law. What happened to freedom of speech in the country? I think it is going down the toilet with everything else going on. We are losing all of our rights slowly but surely. I feel like I am in Russia, not the USA. What happened to the majority vote? Well I know it is really a mess, and I sure hope somebody does something right soon. If they dont, we will be in the toilet real quick. Yours truly, Beverly Perdue LETTER TO THE EDITOR The rules of newspaper announcements RANDAL SEYLER Editor Blountstown pioneer settlement seeking your journey stories I received an email from Amy Alderman the other day asking me to participate in Blountstowns Panhandle Pioneer Settlements exhibit. If I understand the information sent to me, the Smithsonian Museum on Main Street exhibit will be on display at the Pioneer Settlement July 14 to Aug 25. They are asking panhandle counties including Holmes to participate by having a display to include some of our journey stories. These will tell of the people who left their previous lives behind to populate our area. Whether it be another state, across the continent or across an ocean, the journey ended in the Panhandle of Florida. Many of the family stories in The Heritage of Holmes County tell of these journeys. In skimming for some such stories I came across the Flournoy family. I worked with the late Anne Flournoy Galloway at Bonifay Middle School and was interested in reading her familys journey story. The Flournoy or Flournois family of America were Hugenots and were among those who fled from Champagne, France, to Geneva, Switzerland, after the Massacre at Vassay in 1552. Annes family traces its roots back to Jacob Flournoy, who with a nephew, Jean Jacques Flournoy, arrived in Virginia in the early 1700s. The family migration took them to Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama and finally Florida. The first ones to arrive settled in Euchie Valley in either Holmes or Walton County around 1800, where Jonathon Flournoy married Mary Elizabeth Knowles. The couple had 11 children. Their fourth child, John Franklin, moved to Westville in the mid 1800s, where he established a lumber mill and commissary. He married Augusta Margurite Jenssen. The couple bore 14 children, but because of the dyptheria epidemic, only five grew to adulthood. Alfred Henry Flournoy served in World War I and later attended Georgia Tech. While passing through Syracuse, N.Y., on a troop train during the war, he met Josephine Anne Capone. She was a Red Cross volunteer giving out coffee and doughnuts to the troops. This southern young man could not get the Yankee maiden out of his mind, so after several years of correspondence, he took a job with Ford Motor Co. in Detroit, and the two were married Dec.10, 1923. A couple of years later, Alfred and Jo, along with several friends, brought three yachts down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. In New Orleans, Alfred bought a car and brought his Syracuse University-trained bride, who had been an assistant to New York Congressman Tom Clancy, home to Westville. Imagine her chagrin coming to the wilderness of Florida from New York City or Detroit in 1925. He built his bride a house beside U.S. Highway 90, where they lived during the birth of their children, all delivered by Dr. George Walton Carter. John Alfred married Ovie Drggers. Robert Joseph married Mary Ledbetter. Anne Marie first married Conrad Tucker and then Drew Galloway. Her two children were Bobby and Drew Jr. The family was in the lumber business as well as running a general store in Westville. When I was a child, I often heard my dad speak of the Flournoys. Today, the only members of that family who still reside in Holmes County are Drew Galloway Jr and his Holmes County native wife and their children. Their home is in the Galloway community between Hurricane Creek and Sweet Gum Head. If your familys story fits the category of a journey story, you might consider getting it into the display at the Pioneer village. A meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, at the Washington County Historical Society Building, just south of the traffic light in Chipley on State 77 (South Sixth Street). We should get a better understanding of what a journey story is and how we can better present them. HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison WANT TO GO? Journey stories tell of the people who left their previous lives behind to populate our area. A meeting about journey stories will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, at the Washington County Historical Society building on South Sixth Street. Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com As the nation prepares to celebrate Arbor Day on April 27, Florida has them beat by three months. In Holmes and Washington counties, the Florida Forest Service went to local schools and parks to plant trees and raise awareness of the bene ts of trees in all aspects of life, whether its in the country or in the city. Did you know: Floridas Arbor Day is held on the third Friday in January, which this year was Jan. 21. Arbor originated in Nebraska by J. Sterling Morton, who planted trees on open land for windbreaks. In 1872, the rst Arbor Day event was declared in Nebraska. Florida celebrated its rst Arbor Day in DeFuniak Springs in 1885. Our state tree is the Cabbage Palm, aka the Sabal palmetto, and is not actually a tree, it is a woody stemmed grass. This information was provided by the Florida Forest Service. According to the Florida Forest Service, planting trees in urban and community settings has multiple bene ts, such as shade for climate modication, wildlife habitats, clean air, soil and water conservation, energy conservation, carbon sequestration, pollution and noise reduction, hurricane and heavy wind damage reduction, increased property value and increased tourist attraction because of beauti cation. The Florida Forest Service annually utilizes grant funding from the Arbor Day Foundation to purchase trees for community outreach and education, said Mike Mathis, senior forester with the Holmes County Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. This Arbor Day celebration may come in the form of tree donations to the general public or park and school beauti cation. Past Arbor Day events have included the involvement of local 4-H and garden club organizations. Mathis said the county forester considers several options when selecting tree species. Trees native to the local area should always be utilized, Mathis said. The forester may also consider species that are more droughtand freeze-tolerant and hurricane-resistant than others. Soil, climate and available sunlight are also micro-conditions commonly considered. For more information on Arbor Day, visit the Arbor Day Foundations website at www.arborday.org.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Be proactive to avoid animal pests By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission Most wildlife keeps plenty of distance between themselves and humans. However, when homeowners leave pet food outside or garbage unsecured, some species of wildlife will move in and help themselves. And, therein lies a problem. Some months Ill handle 100 to 200 calls about nuisance wildlife, said Corey Wigginton, a wildlife assistance biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Wigginton is a Mississippi State University graduate and works out of the FWCs Northwest Regional of ce in Panama City. He is one of ve FWC staff around the state who help the public on a daily basis with nuisance wildlife problems. Everyone enjoys seeing wildlife but the best way to avoid nuisance issues is to never let them start in the rst place, he said. If you have outside dogs or cats, after feeding your pets, bring in their food dishes or lock them away. Leaving dishes outside with food can and will attract raccoons, opossums, fox, skunks and even coyotes. When it comes to black bears, Wigginton said anything that attracts smaller mammals also will attract bears. He said more than half of the calls he receives about bears involve unsecured garbage, but includes bears going after bird seed and barbecue grills. We all know bears have expanded in numbers and occupy most of their habitat. If you know bears are anywhere around, be proactive and dont leave out unsecured garbage or other things for bears to get into, he said. Wigginton said some garbage service providers in Northwest Florida provide their customers bear-proof garbage cans, albeit for a small monthly fee, and even bearproof Dumpsters at some businesses. If obtaining a bear-proof can isnt feasible, he said the FWC provides instructions on its website on how to retro t most garbage cans for $12 to $14 that will keep out most bears. He said the materials are available at hardware stores. He said another option for homeowners experiencing problems with bears getting into garbage is to build a bear caddy. A bear caddy is a small four-sided structure with a roof, built of treated wood and large enough to hold one or two garbage cans. Wigginton said there is considerable information on the commissions website on a variety of nuisance wildlife problems. He said anyone needing more information or assistance should call 850-265-3676. If you own an iPhone or Droid, it just might save you some money someday while fishing. How many times have you caught a fish and wondered if it the legal length or how it was measured or even what kind of fish it was? Technology to the rescue. We are all familiar with all the applications we can put on our phones. Phones hardly are used to talk on any more. They take better pictures and movies than most cameras, more people text on phones than talk and the different applications are mind boggling. When I was at the outdoor show at Fort Walton Beach a few months ago, I went by the U.S. Game and Fish booth and picked up a post card with an application decal on it. Not knowing what it was all about, I scanned it into my phone. What came up was the neatest bit of information I could want, and it was free. It gave me all the fish that could be caught in federal waters, the size limits, the bag limits, the seasons they could be caught and regulation remarks. Lets say you are snapper fishing in federal waters and you catch a rudder fish and want to know if it has a bag limit and how big it has to be. All you have to do is go to banded rudder fish, and it will show you a picture of a banded rudder fish so you cant mistake the fish you caught. It tells you the size limit is 14 to 22 inches minimum to the fork length slot limit. It also tells you the bag limit is five fish aggregate, excluded from 20 reef fish aggregate. It also tells you there is no season on this fish. All the fish you could catch in federal waters are included in this application and it is free. The application for Florida state waters including all the Gulf States isnt free. It will cost you about $7, which isnt much compared to a fine. It contains all the information the federal application does, and it does so for every state bordering the Gulf, but only for saltwater fish. If you go to another state you never should be blindsided because you didnt know the rules. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Cobia are on the move along Gulf Coast By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission They quite often are called ling, but cobia are found along the Gulf Coast in the spring and are one of the hardest ghting and besteating game sh anglers catch. Beginning typically in March and extending into April, cobia move north along the Gulf Coast as water temperatures approach 68 to 70 degrees. Sometimes it will be single sh, but other times as many as four to ve of the torpedo-shaped sh cruise along several feet beneath the surface. During the annual cobia run, hundreds of vessels cruise off the shoreline looking for migrating sh. You usually can spot these vessels by their prominent ling towers, which the anglers use to spot sh. It is common for sh to weigh 30 to 50 pounds, but they can exceed 100 pounds. In fact, the Florida record is a 130-pound, 1ounce cobia caught off Destin in 1997. For some reason, there are years when large numbers of cobia make their westward trek close to shore, usually just off the second sandbar. Other years, anglers report seeing them farther offshore, sometimes 4 to 5 miles out. Regardless, they are typically a sh that anglers sight cast to with either large jigs or live eels. Sometimes, cobia are found following large rays or underneath oating objects in the Gulf, such as sargassum mats. During the late spring and summer months, cobia are commonly caught by anglers shing wrecks and other deepwater structure, such as vessels, towers and bridge structure. Good live baits on such structure are blue runners (hardtail), pin sh and cigar minnows. When it comes to taste, cobia are avorful and unique. Sometimes called lemon sh for their taste, the white meat lends itself well to broiling, frying or baking. In Florida waters, cobia must measure at least 33 inches fork length to count as a legal sh. Under FWC rules, recreational anglers are limited to one cobia per day, with a maximum of six sh per vessel.

Local Wednesday, April 25, 2012 A7 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Denny Hamlin came around Martin Truex Jr. for the lead and the win with only 31 laps to go in Sundays STP 400 in Kansas. Martin Truex Jr. lead four times during the race for a total of 173 laps. Even though he couldnt hold it, he still managed to finish better than he ever has at Kansas by finishing second. His best finish before Sunday was at sixth. Denny Hamlin was just having a better day. We cant say all the top drivers were having a good day. Jeff Gordon was black flagged on lap 246 for not maintaining a safe speed on the track and a lap later took his car to the garage for the remainder of the race, this penalty didnt come before he was have engine trouble anyway on lap 238. I believe the best line I ever heard was from one of the MRN Broadcasters when Truex was on A. J. Allmendinger for the lead and he said that Truex was on Allmendinger like a rottweiler on a rump roast. Kurt Busch had a first of his Sprint Cup career on Sunday he raced without a main sponsor on his Phoenix Racing number 51. This was the last race that was run on the Kansas track in its current state. Repaving of the track began as Denny Hamlin pulled on to Victory Lane. The banking will go from being 15 degrees all the way around the track to being 17 degrees on the low side and 20 degrees up along the wall. There will be a Road Course built on the infield, and the infield track is set to host a Grand Am race next year. NASCAR has been promised that the paving will be complete for tire testing in September and the Chase race in October. With only two cautions I would have to say that this was not the best race I have seen. I am sure there are many more of you out there that have the same views on this as I do, without all the accidents this sport has become somewhat of a drag. What is all of that safety equipment for if the new rules keep them from needing them? Lets not get off on that I only have so much room here in the paper. We will see if the new rules hinder the action at Talladega. There were four green flag stops that the drivers had to take for gas, tires, etc., these stops were caused by the lack of cautions in the race. The first of these green flag stops came on laps 43 to 48. Caution on came early on lap 52 when Clint Bowyer spun out in turn four. Then in lap 58 Bowyer and Kyle Busch made contact but both stayed out on the track and there was no caution. Bowyer made it to lap 71 before NASCAR inspectors notices smoke coming from the right front of his car. Lap 76 started the bad luck for the drivers as A.J. Allmendinger reported problems with his engine. Kevin Harvick started reporting that he was running out of gas and started a round of green flag stops that lasted from lap 90 to lap 100. Caution two, the last caution of the race, came when the drivers started reporting debris on the track on lap 132. Bowyers car had finally had enough I guess and the engine blew on lap 139 and he took the car to the garage on lap 140. Laps 177183 brought on the third round of green flag stops. The four laps later on lap 187, after all those drivers had to make the green flag stops, Juan Montoya hit the wall, fortunately not ticking off to many of the drivers, NASCAR didnt call a caution. Ryan Newman brought his car on to Pit Road on lap 196 with troubles. Then on lap 215 Tony Stewart rubbed the wall but stayed out on the track to finish the race. The fourth and final round of green flag stops came on laps 220-233. On lap 244 one of the drivers started reporting oil on the track. NASCAR Officials looked and said the track was clear. Hamlin nabs win from Truex Jr. CECILIA SPEARS 547-4914 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County School District approved a Principal Evaluation System during their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 17, that evaluates principals in the same manner as they have been with teachers. This evaluation is 50 percent based on administration evaluation and 50 percent student Value-Added Model, which uses each students test scores in core subjects and compares the performance of each student to the expected achievement of each student. The Principal Evaluation System is now a state requirement. The School District also approved of the revised K-12 Teacher VAM Scores to include credit for all children moving from red (high risk assessments) to green (low risk assessments). Also approved was the 2012 Summer VPK Contract with Littlest Angel Early Learning Center. The School Board is required by the state to offer Summer VPK and Littlest Angel Early Learning Center is the only day care center near by that has a certi ed teacher on staff. School District Attorney Lucas Taylor gave an update on the pending agreement of giving the Ponce de Leon Agricultural Building to the Town of Ponce de Leon. Ive sent their lawyer an email, but I have yet to hear from them, Taylor said. I basically told her what we wanted to do and that we wouldnt take any action until weve heard back from them. The School District approved of all over-night/ out-of-state trips, which includes Holmes County High Schools Drama Class trip on May 2-3 to Jacksonville to see the Broadway Show Les Miserables; the HCHS Senior Trip to Orlando on May 16-18; Ponce de Leon High School FCCLA Clubs trip on July 18-21 to Orlando for the FCCLA National Leadership Conference; and Bethlehem High Schools Key Clubs trip to Valdosta, Ga., Wild Adventures on May 4 as a reward for Key Clubs Community Service.

From Staff Reports CHIPLEY More than 2,000 visitors to Falling Waters State Park were transported back in time during the Legends & Lore festival, held Friday and Saturday at the park. On Friday, the rain held off as hundreds of students from Washington and Holmes counties visited the booths and got a taste of living history. Park of cials welcomed 629 schoolchildren and 1,087 general admission visitors on Friday for the historical happenings. Bad weather on Saturday curtailed a bit of the action, but area residents supported the park, said Amy Sweeney, program director for Friends of Falling Waters Park. It went great, and our fundraising went quite well, she said. Despite the threat of rain, we had a real good turnout. Attractions at the event included live cannon re with civil war re-enactors, blacksmiths, quilters, a cracker cowboy, gristmills, candle makers, int knappers, butter makers, a wild West shootout and much more. Many crafters and artisans were in attendance, and some of the unique artistic creations found throughout the festival included chainsaw carvings, basket weavers, paintings and jewelry. Animals were a hit with the children, including cows, goat, chicken and a few other animals from the farm. There were also venomous snakes and an alligator on display for visitors. Falling Waters State Park was opened on March 26, 1962, and to commemorate its 50th anniversary, there will be a plaque dedicated to the last 50 years as the park looks toward a promising future. This event over the years has been supported by the community, including major support from the Washington County Tourist Development Council and Community South Credit Union. Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of Legends & Lore, Sweeney said, adding, We hope to make it even bigger and better. Wednesday, APRIL 25 2012 Washington, make it even bigger and better.

Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 While ligament tears can cause serious setbacks in an athletes career, a similar in jury can mean surgery and rehabilitation for your frisky kitty or romping Rover. According to Dr. Sha ron Kerwin, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Bio medical Sciences, anterior cruciate ligament tears or cranial cruciate ligament injuries, as they are re ferred to in animals, occur almost as often as they do in humans. Cats and dogs have the same ligaments that we have in our knees, says Kerwin. The cruciate liga ment stabilizes your femur and your tibia so you dont get too much motion be tween those two bones. CCL tears in cats often occur the same way ACL tears occur in humans. Of ten, there is some traumat ic injury that occurs as a result of jumping from high places, playing or getting the animals leg caught in something. It takes a fair bit of force to rupture a cruciate ligament, and it tends to occur more often in over weight cats, says Kerwin. However, in dogs, this injury is often the result of a chronic degeneration of the ligament and occurs much more frequently than it does in cats. In dogs, we think the injury may be related to weight and body structure, meaning that some large breeds such as Rottwei lers, Labradors and Chow Chows, may be predisposed to CCL injuries, said Ker win. In some cases, we think its either the shape of their tibia or the shape of their femur that predispos es them to this injury. A ruptured ligament is usually characterized by limping or inactivity. In cats, they will not want to play the way they used to, and dogs will often appear lame and sit awkwardly with their leg sticking out, signaling a possible knee problem. Kerwin says if your pet shows signs of an injured leg, schedule an ap pointment with your veteri narian who will conduct a lameness exam in order to diagnose the problem. The injury is often treat ed in cats with medical management by placing overweight cats on a strict diet with exercise restric tion for three to six weeks, followed by a check-up measuring progress. If the injury fails to heal, surgery is often recommended to explore and stabilize the joint. But when dogs are af icted with CCL injuries, many times the best option is surgery as quickly as possible. Dogs often dont do well with medical manage ment, the injury will often worsen over time as the ar thritis in the knee builds, explains Kerwin. Part of the problem is they tend to suffer cartilage tears that we dont often see in cats, so we recommend explor ing the knee and cleaning it through an arthroscopy just like they would do in a human and then stabilizing it. Dogs often require 812 weeks of recovery in cluding strict rest and rehabilitation. Once your pet has undergone the recom mended period of exercise restriction, it is important to encourage it to exer cise its leg with slow leash walks or through playtime activities. The biggest way to prevent CCL tears is to keep your pet at a proper weight, Kerwin says. It is very easy for ani mals to gain weight, espe cially if they spend most of their time indoors, because they do not get the same level of exercise. Your vet erinarian can advise you on the proper weight for your dog or cat. ABOUT PET TALK Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sci ences, Texas A&M Univer sity.

This Message Courtesy of Wanting More Than Your Fair Share The Greek word pleonexia means greed or cov etousness. And, the acts of greed and covetousness are found frequently in the New Testament. Plato and Aristotle used the word to mean wanting more than your fair share, and Aristotle suggested that all injustice is a form of pleonexia. In Platos Republic, one of the dialogues participants, Thrasymachus, says that pleonexia is the natural state of man, and Thrasymachus view that might makes right. Re cently, some have suggested that the economic and social woes seen around the world can be traced to people, and nations, wanting more than their fair share. Both individuals and groups can be guilty of wanting too much. Wanting to live in a house that is bigger than you can afford is wanting too much, but so is thinking that everyone in your country should be able to retire at the age of 50 or 55 with down to what is the fair share that everybody should pay. Knowing exactly what your fair share is can be readily gave and expected little in return. Take heed, and beware of all covetousness;for a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.

Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I nished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terri c and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goo ng off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just ne, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I rst walked in. I focused on the menu. As I Looked up from the menu, I was shocked to the core from what I saw. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the oor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume t quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not t. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order nally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magni ed in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal. The Rev. James L.

Rick Scotts 2012-13 state budget, which was signed into law Tuesday. The PAEC was hit with a $1 million budget reduction when the governor vetoed line items in the $69.9 billion state budget, PAEC Executive Director Pat McDaniel said Friday at a news conference in Chipley, but the new budget decreases funding for the states three educational consortia serving rural school districts. He vetoed four different line items, but the two I was concerned about were ones we had been getting for years, McDaniel said. The items were cut with no explanation. The consortium represents rural school districts in Walton, Washington, Holmes, Jackson, Calhoun, Gadsen, Madison, Jefferson, Liberty, Taylor, Wakulla, Franklin and Gulf counties as well as the Florida State University College of Educations developmental research school in Tallahassee..

From Staff ReportsCOLLI OLLI ER R VILL ILL E, T T enn. The parents of Ben McDaniel, a 30-yearold cave diver that went missing after last seen diving in Vortex Springs almost two years ago, rescinded their $30,000 reward for fear of inexperienced divers getting killed in search of their son. This decision was made shortly after the death of 43-year-old Larry Higginbotham last month. Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce reported there was no indication that Higginbotham was in search of McDaniel when he drowned. Marianna Fire Chief Byron Bennett assisted in the dive to recover Higginbothams body and said that rescinding the reward was for the best. There have been a large number of expert divers from this area and all over the country who have searched every nook and cranny and inch of that cave and unfortunately we strongly believe that he is not in there, said Bennett.

Council member Richard Woodham explained that there were quite a few complaints about the lights being left on at the baseball eld all night and this was causing the electric bill to sky-rocket. Calvin Sherrouse with the local Dixie Youth explained that it was very easy to locate and activate the switch to turn on the lights and Woodham conrmed that anyone could do it as soon as they gured out how. Weve got 22 teams using the park and 530 scheduled events for this year alone, said Sherrouse. Were ran by volunteer work only and our expenses are franchise fees, insurance on the players, equipment costs, awards and the awards banquet just to name a few of the expenses. We just cant afford a big light bill.Ca A Th H RIne NE LambLAMB | The NewsAydan Tate, left, Aden Cooper and William Yancey, all fth graders at Bonifay Middle School, enjoy visiting at Falling Waters State Park on Friday during the 9th annual Legends & Lore Festival.

Were here as support, said Glass. To give a helping hand because it can be exhausting sometimes and if we can relieve even a little bit of stress it makes all the difference. Glass encouraged everyone to ll out their custom 5 Wishes packet, which is a step-by-step living will that Covenant Hospice provides free of charge. I know this isnt something that people are comfortable talking about but you never know when you may go, were not guaranteed tomorrow, said Glass. This gives your family a clear list of instructions, stating who you want your health care surrogate be if you are unable to speak for yourself and this gives your family members the comfort of knowing that theyre carrying out your wishes. Its just one less thing for your family members to worry about. There is also a more intricate will outline that is now available through the Covenant Hospice upon request. For more information visit their website at www. covenanthospice.org. Ive worked with Covenant Hospice for over ve years now and have met some amazing people and families and regardless of the patients ability to pay we still provide the services, said Jennifer Grif n, Division Manager for Covenant Hospice Marianna. Never have I ever felt as much ful llment as I have with this organization. Grif n stressed that the organization isnt at all reimbursable by insurance. We even have child care services available, Grif n said. Its hard for adults but its especially hard on the children to try to cope with the sickness and death of a loved one. Grif n said they are always in need of donations and volunteers. She said that you could also dedicate a donation in honor or memory of someone and it could be speci ed that the money donated would have to stay within Holmes County. If you dont specify, then the donation goes into the Covenant Hospice pot and then it goes anywhere, Grif n said. If you want to make sure it stays in the community to help local people then youve got to specify thats what its for. Volunteers are still needed, said Grif n, even if its only an hour a month. Whatever the talent we will utilize it somewhere, said Grif n. You have no idea how far just a little bit can go. Whether its cutting someones lawn or just giving them a call in the evening to see if they need anything it could mean the world to someone. Grif n announced this years upcoming Garden Gala 2012, which will be $60 per individual or $100 per couple held from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 at the Donald E. Price Activity Center at 4792 Highway 90 in Marianna. All proceeds from this event will be going to fund the unfunded or under-funded programs of Covenant Hospice, which includes Bereavement, Chaplain Services, Childrens Support and Volunteer Services. The event includes an evening lled with art, tastings, exhibits, live music and dinner. There will also be featured hand painted terra cotta pots, custom constructed Adirondack chairs, benches and swings hand-painted by local artists. Last year we were able to raise over $60,000 from a multitude of sponsors, Grif n said. If youve never been we encourage you to come. She said that she was impressed with the amount of support that shes seen, especially from Holmes County. We love coming to Holmes County, Grif n said. The amount of hospitality we receive while were here is amazing. Were hoping to see some Holmes County people at the Gala this year. This year she said they would be having a tip competition where members of the local community would volunteer to be servers at the event and see how who can receive the most tips. All proceeds go to Covenant Hospice, said Grifn. Weve got Doctors Memorial Hospitals Administrator JoAnn Baker, but we still need many more servers. During the Gala there will be a vacation package raf ed to stay at Five Palms in San Destin between the months of September and February with enough room to comfortably accommodate to 18 people, this is one of the many donations that are offered during this event as raf es. Covenant Hospice is a not for pro t organization dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive end-of-life care to patients and their loved ones during time of life limiting illness based on a need, not their ability to pay, said Angela Jackson, Development Specialist for Covenant Hospice Marianna. With the help of your donation, Covenant Hospice of Marianna will be able to continue providing special care in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson and Washington County. A gift to Covenant Hospice is truly an investment in our mission to add life to days when days can no longer be added to life.

Our budget had cleared the legislative process after careful scrutiny by the House and Senate. I want to believe it was an oversight by someone on the governors staff. The budget contained a billion more education dollars than the 201112 budget where the state lopped $1.3 billion from education, a fact the governor stressed in a April 17 news release from his of ce. Scott signed the budget while visiting an elementary school in St. Johns County. Over the last year I have traveled the state to hear from Floridians what issues they care about most. Thats why this budget should be known as an education budget, Scott said in the release. The intention of consortiums are to share services and pool resource to achieve savings across the district, and we agree with those intentions, said Lane Wright, the governors press secretary, in an email on Friday. School districts already have funds available from the Florida Education Finance Program to take care of the types of expenses they were requesting be funded through the consortium. The services offered by the consortium are things that can and should be paid from those district funds, Wright said. The PAEC is de nitely a resource for all of us, said Dr. Sandra Cook, superintendent of Washington County School District and chairperson of the PAEC board of directors. The bottom line is our children are going to be impacted by this. PAEC, along with North East Florida Educational Consortium and the Heartland Educational Consortium collectively represent 35 rural school districts and over 150,000 students by providing teacher training, teacher certi cation tracking, grant applications, risk management, cooperative purchasing, Race to the Top initiatives, and a variety of other essential services the districts would otherwise have dif culty performing, according to a news release from the PAEC. The three consortia lost at total of $1,445,000 in the budget cuts, McDaniel said. McDaniel said the PAEC was a great model of how to save the government money. Through the cooperative programs provided by the PAEC and other consortia, rural districts do not have to spend money hiring specialists or sending teachers to expensive in-service training. McDaniel used in-service training as a prime example of how PAEC saves districts, and the state, money. The state average cost per hour for inservice training is $185 per hour, McDaniel said. Through the PAEC, the average cost per hour for in-service training is $12.50. When multiplied by the number of in-service hours completed since 2001, 2,032200, PAEC shows savings of $350,554,500 in in-service hours alone. The PAEC was created in 1967 for one purpose, to save the state time and money, McDaniel said. We are a solid return on the states investment, he said. We know without a doubt we make a difference for our districts. The budget reduction will primarily impact the consortiums overhead and salaries, McDaniel said. The consortium could be forced to lay off employees as a result of the decrease in funding. PAEC has 57 employees, McDaniel said. The board of directors has not yet come up with a plan for making up for the budgetary de cit, but they are putting their heads together to look for solutions. Cook said the recent mandate from the state that districts implement teacher and principal evaluations is a good example of a service the PAEC provides. I dont have an R&D team in Washington County, Cook said. We depend on the PAEC to help come up with tools we need to meet these mandates. This is very disturbing to us. I dont have the personnel to do inservice training, said Tommy McClellan, superintendent of Calhoun County School District. Our district has seen $1 million in budget cuts over the past three years. McClellan said the PAEC offers superintendents a forum to get resources and share information. Its like a family reunion, he said of the consortiums monthly meetings. We depend on each other, and we depend on the PAEC. PAEC from page A1 RANDAL SEYLER | The Times-AdvertiserDr. Sandra Cook, superintendent of the Washington County School District and board chairperson of the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium visits with staff at the PAEC board room during Fridays news conference. The consortium is facing $1 million in budget cuts this year. The city agreed to look into possible ways of locking up the access to the light switches. Mayor Lawrence Cloud suggested looking into a way to place a request donation on the monthly city utility bill so that citizens of Bonifay could help the teams with their expenses. It wouldnt be much, just a dollar or two each month added to their utility bill and these kids would be good to go for the year, said Cloud. I know making it voluntary will make it easy for some to say no, but I believe that the folks here would be more than willing to help our youth. City Attorney Lucas Taylor said that he didnt see any reason why they couldnt add a voluntary donation to the utility bill but that he would do some research into the matter and bring his ndings to the next city council meeting. Cloud gave an update at his last meeting about the expansion of the 911 to accommodate to their new equipment. If the Board of County Commissioners is okay with it I would suggest allowing them to move and take down a few walls to allow for more room for their new equipment, said Cloud. Council member Roger Brooks said that if the 911 Department was willing to take on the task themselves that it shouldnt be a problem for the city to accommodate them with the additional space. The city agreed that if the BOCC approved of the expansion that the city would allow it. Cloud told the council that he had taken a look at the budget and that it was time to really start tightening the belts. Most of our departments are over 50 percent of their annual budget already, said Cloud. We really need to be tightening our belts where we can. The city agreed to get rid of their old police and junk cars for as much pro t as they could get out of them. DIXIE YOUTH from page A1

Call 638-0212. Since we are getting into election season and the announcements of candidates for various of ces are starting to roll in, I thought Id take a minute and give a Newspaper Article 101 tutorial in this weeks column. Ive already gotten several announcements, and I have had several candidates promise forthcoming announcements. What I mean by announcement is an article about 300 to 500 words long saying John Brown is running for county dog catcher, followed by a few paragraphs about John Brown and why he would be the best dog catcher ever, John Browns life history, his family tree and then a nal paragraph saying again why he is the best thing since hot chocolate. Most of the self-generated announcements have been ne, while some that have been written by a third party for candidates have lacked some basic information. Normally I would contact the candidate to get the missing information, but part of the missing information I needed was a way to contact the person, such as a phone number. So Rule No. 1 include contact information in case we need to call you back for more information. Normally this isnt a problem; most people who email, fax or drop off announcements to us have that information available. Rule No. 1 also applies to any announcement you bring us here at the paper, not just candidate announcements. Though I am mainly speaking about political announcements, the formula pretty much holds true for any kind of announcement you might care to send in to the paper. Most people know the Five Ws and One H rule Who, What, When, Where, Why and How but you would be surprised how often we see these basic building blocks left out of press releases. If you are submitting an article announcing the churchs upcoming potluck supper or the high school bands next concert, then the ve Ws are pretty much all you need to tell us. For example, The High School Bands (who) spring concert (what) will be at 5 p.m. Tuesday (when) at the high school cafeteria (where). The concert is a fundraiser for the bands trip to the Rose Bowl (why). How gets a little complicated and usually doesnt make it into basic news releases. In fact, usually its the how that gets journalists in trouble when they try to explain things normal humans arent meant to understand, like nuclear physics, rocket science or why anybody over the age of 14 would go to a Twilight movie. How is good to put in your press release if you are running for of ce although mainly the how should be focused on how you are going to make things better, or different. Unless youre running for president, you dont want to focus on how bad a person your opponent is its better to focus on what is your applicable experience and how would you bring that experience to your new of ce. Which brings us to Rule No. 2 write as much as you want, and well chop it down to t. Its much better to overwrite than underwrite, especially on political announcements. Include your family, profession, education, church af liation, political experience (if any), political af liation (if it matters), your opinion on how you can do the job better than the guy whos doing it now, just go crazy. If you write a short and sweet announcement, that is great, too, but be sure to give us the contact information (see Rule No. 1). Incidentally, you dont have to run for of ce to write an article for either the Washington County News or the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. If you have an interesting hobby, job or family history, feel free to write about it. If you send us something and it doesnt get published within a week or so, be sure to check with us to make sure we actually received it (especially if it was sent via email) and to make sure we havent forgotten about it. As you might guess, we get a lot of email and snail mail each week, and sometimes things fall through the cracks. Also always ll out the subject line on your email. If we get nosubject emails, a lot of times they are treated as spam if you put Attention Randal or Attention Cecilia in the subject head it helps us know its not a spam. If it is a local article, we want to publish it. And if we cant t it all in the newspaper, well put it online for sure (especially if it involves a lot of photos). If you have any questions about writing a news article or press release, feel free to give me a call at 638-0212 or drop me an email at rseyler@chipleypaper.com. Country needs to address major concernsDear Editor, Everybody would like to have health care. The only problem is the cost of everything is out of sight. When you pay $10 for a Tylenol tablet or $400 for a blood test, it is a little high. I can go on I think you get the idea why a lot of people do not have medical insurance. The hospitals and the money you pay for prescriptions do not make any sense at all. I call it a license to steal. I think they should be stopped from stealing from everybody. I want to know if the ObamaCare goes through, how are they going to provide medical help for everyone? Social Security and Medicaid already are having problems helping everybody they have now. If they put everybody on ObamaCare, they have to get money from somewhere. I know I wouldnt want to pay higher taxes because of it. I think everybody pays too much now. Why? So they can have parties and go to Las Vegas at out expense again. I also noticed lately on TV there are talk show hosts and even people in Washington, D.C., who have a problem with name-calling. The main target is a woman in general. Calling Sarah Palin obscene names. Saying bad things about her children. There were other women also. I think it is rude and arrogant. Where are all the womens groups that are supposed to stand up for you? I guess they are scared to stand up for anyone. If that is the case, they should stay home and knit or something else. We should not have to be insulted and not do anything about it. This country is not standing up for our rights. We are getting weaker all the time. Another thing about the cross. I cant believe they are trying to pass a law you are not allowed to wear one. Where do they get off even thinking of a thing like that? I would like to know what pinheads are trying to pass that kind of law. What happened to freedom of speech in the country? I think it is going down the toilet with everything else going on. We are losing all of our rights slowly but surely. I feel like I am in Russia, not the USA. What happened to the majority vote? Well I know it is really a mess, and I sure hope somebody does something right soon. If they dont, we will be in the toilet real quick. Yours truly,Beverly Perdue LETTER TO THE EDITOR The rules of newspaper announcements RANDAL SEYLEREditor Blountstown pioneer settlement seeking your journey storiesI received an email from Amy Alderman the other day asking me to participate in Blountstowns Panhandle Pioneer Settlements exhibit. If I understand the information sent to me, the Smithsonian Museum on Main Street exhibit will be on display at the Pioneer Settlement July 14 to Aug 25. They are asking panhandle counties including Holmes to participate by having a display to include some of our journey stories. These will tell of the people who left their previous lives behind to populate our area. Whether it be another state, across the continent or across an ocean, the journey ended in the Panhandle of Florida. Many of the family stories in The Heritage of Holmes County tell of these journeys. In skimming for some such stories I came across the Flournoy family. I worked with the late Anne Flournoy Galloway at Bonifay Middle School and was interested in reading her familys journey story. The Flournoy or Flournois family of America were Hugenots and were among those who fled from Champagne, France, to Geneva, Switzerland, after the Massacre at Vassay in 1552. Annes family traces its roots back to Jacob Flournoy, who with a nephew, Jean Jacques Flournoy, arrived in Virginia in the early 1700s. The family migration took them to Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama and finally Florida. The first ones to arrive settled in Euchie Valley in either Holmes or Walton County around 1800, where Jonathon Flournoy married Mary Elizabeth Knowles. The couple had 11 children. Their fourth child, John Franklin, moved to Westville in the mid 1800s, where he established a lumber mill and commissary. He married Augusta Margurite Jenssen. The couple bore 14 children, but because of the dyptheria epidemic, only five grew to adulthood. Alfred Henry Flournoy served in World War I and later attended Georgia Tech. While passing through Syracuse, N.Y., on a troop train during the war, he met Josephine Anne Capone. She was a Red Cross volunteer giving out coffee and doughnuts to the troops. This southern young man could not get the Yankee maiden out of his mind, so after several years of correspondence, he took a job with Ford Motor Co. in Detroit, and the two were married Dec.10, 1923. A couple of years later, Alfred and Jo, along with several friends, brought three yachts down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. In New Orleans, Alfred bought a car and brought his Syracuse University-trained bride, who had been an assistant to New York Congressman Tom Clancy, home to Westville. Imagine her chagrin coming to the wilderness of Florida from New York City or Detroit in 1925. He built his bride a house beside U.S. Highway 90, where they lived during the birth of their children, all delivered by Dr. George Walton Carter. John Alfred married Ovie Drggers. Robert Joseph married Mary Ledbetter. Anne Marie first married Conrad Tucker and then Drew Galloway. Her two children were Bobby and Drew Jr. The family was in the lumber business as well as running a general store in Westville. When I was a child, I often heard my dad speak of the Flournoys. Today, the only members of that family who still reside in Holmes County are Drew Galloway Jr and his Holmes County native wife and their children. Their home is in the Galloway community between Hurricane Creek and Sweet Gum Head. If your familys story fits the category of a journey story, you might consider getting it into the display at the Pioneer village. A meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, at the Washington County Historical Society Building, just south of the traffic light in Chipley on State 77 (South Sixth Street). We should get a better understanding of what a journey story is and how we can better present them.HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison WANT TO GO?Journey stories tell of the people who left their previous lives behind to populate our area.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com As the nation prepares to celebrate Arbor Day on April 27, Florida has them beat by three months. In Holmes and Washington counties, the Florida Forest Service went to local schools and parks to plant trees and raise awareness of the bene ts of trees in all aspects of life, whether its in the country or in the city. Did you know: Floridas Arbor Day is held on the third Friday in January, which this year was Jan. 21. Arbor originated in Nebraska by J. Sterling Morton, who planted trees on open land for windbreaks. In 1872, the rst Arbor Day event was declared in Nebraska. Florida celebrated its rst Arbor Day in DeFuniak Springs in 1885. Our state tree is the Cabbage Palm, aka the Sabal palmetto, and is not actually a tree, it is a woody stemmed grass. This information was provided by the Florida Forest Service. According to the Florida Forest Service, planting trees in urban and community settings has multiple bene ts, such as shade for climate modication, wildlife habitats, clean air, soil and water conservation, energy conservation, carbon sequestration, pollution and noise reduction, hurricane and heavy wind damage reduction, increased property value and increased tourist attraction because of beauti cation. The Florida Forest Service annually utilizes grant funding from the Arbor Day Foundation to purchase trees for community outreach and education, said Mike Mathis, senior forester with the Holmes County Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. This Arbor Day celebration may come in the form of tree donations to the general public or park and school beauti cation. Past Arbor Day events have included the involvement of local 4-H and garden club organizations. Mathis said the county forester considers several options when selecting tree species. Trees native to the local area should always be utilized, Mathis said. The forester may also consider species that are more droughtand freeze-tolerant and hurricane-resistant than others. Soil, climate and available sunlight are also micro-conditions commonly considered. For more information on Arbor Day, visit the Arbor Day Foundations website at www.arborday.org.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Be proactive to avoid animal pestsBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Commission Most wildlife keeps plenty of distance between themselves and humans. However, when homeowners leave pet food outside or garbage unsecured, some species of wildlife will move in and help themselves. And, therein lies a problem. Some months Ill handle 100 to 200 calls about nuisance wildlife, said Corey Wigginton, a wildlife assistance biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Wigginton is a Mississippi State University graduate and works out of the FWCs Northwest Regional of ce in Panama City. He is one of ve FWC staff around the state who help the public on a daily basis with nuisance wildlife problems. Everyone enjoys seeing wildlife but the best way to avoid nuisance issues is to never let them start in the rst place, he said. If you have outside dogs or cats, after feeding your pets, bring in their food dishes or lock them away. Leaving dishes outside with food can and will attract raccoons, opossums, fox, skunks and even coyotes. When it comes to black bears, Wigginton said anything that attracts smaller mammals also will attract bears. He said more than half of the calls he receives about bears involve unsecured garbage, but includes bears going after bird seed and barbecue grills. We all know bears have expanded in numbers and occupy most of their habitat. If you know bears are anywhere around, be proactive and dont leave out unsecured garbage or other things for bears to get into, he said. Wigginton said some garbage service providers in Northwest Florida provide their customers bear-proof garbage cans, albeit for a small monthly fee, and even bearproof Dumpsters at some businesses. If obtaining a bear-proof can isnt feasible, he said the FWC provides instructions on its website on how to retro t most garbage cans for $12 to $14 that will keep out most bears. He said the materials are available at hardware stores. He said another option for homeowners experiencing problems with bears getting into garbage is to build a bear caddy. A bear caddy is a small four-sided structure with a roof, built of treated wood and large enough to hold one or two garbage cans. Wigginton said there is considerable information on the commissions website on a variety of nuisance wildlife problems. He said anyone needing more information or assistance should call 850-265-3676. If you own an iPhone or Droid, it just might save you some money someday while fishing. How many times have you caught a fish and wondered if it the legal length or how it was measured or even what kind of fish it was? Technology to the rescue. We are all familiar with all the applications we can put on our phones. Phones hardly are used to talk on any more. They take better pictures and movies than most cameras, more people text on phones than talk and the different applications are mind boggling. When I was at the outdoor show at Fort Walton Beach a few months ago, I went by the U.S. Game and Fish booth and picked up a post card with an application decal on it. Not knowing what it was all about, I scanned it into my phone. What came up was the neatest bit of information I could want, and it was free. It gave me all the fish that could be caught in federal waters, the size limits, the bag limits, the seasons they could be caught and regulation remarks. Lets say you are snapper fishing in federal waters and you catch a rudder fish and want to know if it has a bag limit and how big it has to be. All you have to do is go to banded rudder fish, and it will show you a picture of a banded rudder fish so you cant mistake the fish you caught. It tells you the size limit is 14 to 22 inches minimum to the fork length slot limit. It also tells you the bag limit is five fish aggregate, excluded from 20 reef fish aggregate. It also tells you there is no season on this fish. All the fish you could catch in federal waters are included in this application and it is free. The application for Florida state waters including all the Gulf States isnt free. It will cost you about $7, which isnt much compared to a fine. It contains all the information the federal application does, and it does so for every state bordering the Gulf, but only for saltwater fish. If you go to another state you never should be blindsided because you didnt know the rules. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netCobia are on the move along Gulf CoastBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Commission They quite often are called ling, but cobia are found along the Gulf Coast in the spring and are one of the hardest ghting and besteating game sh anglers catch. Beginning typically in March and extending into April, cobia move north along the Gulf Coast as water temperatures approach 68 to 70 degrees. Sometimes it will be single sh, but other times as many as four to ve of the torpedo-shaped sh cruise along several feet beneath the surface. During the annual cobia run, hundreds of vessels cruise off the shoreline looking for migrating sh. You usually can spot these vessels by their prominent ling towers, which the anglers use to spot sh. It is common for sh to weigh 30 to 50 pounds, but they can exceed 100 pounds. In fact, the Florida record is a 130-pound, 1ounce cobia caught off Destin in 1997. For some reason, there are years when large numbers of cobia make their westward trek close to shore, usually just off the second sandbar. Other years, anglers report seeing them farther offshore, sometimes 4 to 5 miles out. Regardless, they are typically a sh that anglers sight cast to with either large jigs or live eels. Sometimes, cobia are found following large rays or underneath oating objects in the Gulf, such as sargassum mats. During the late spring and summer months, cobia are commonly caught by anglers shing wrecks and other deepwater structure, such as vessels, towers and bridge structure. Good live baits on such structure are blue runners (hardtail), pin sh and cigar minnows. When it comes to taste, cobia are avorful and unique. Sometimes called lemon sh for their taste, the white meat lends itself well to broiling, frying or baking. In Florida waters, cobia must measure at least 33 inches fork length to count as a legal sh. Under FWC rules, recreational anglers are limited to one cobia per day, with a maximum of six sh per vessel.

LocalWednesday, April 25, 2012A7 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserCATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Denny Hamlin came around Martin Truex Jr. for the lead and the win with only 31 laps to go in Sundays STP 400 in Kansas. Martin Truex Jr. lead four times during the race for a total of 173 laps. Even though he couldnt hold it, he still managed to finish better than he ever has at Kansas by finishing second. His best finish before Sunday was at sixth. Denny Hamlin was just having a better day. We cant say all the top drivers were having a good day. Jeff Gordon was black flagged on lap 246 for not maintaining a safe speed on the track and a lap later took his car to the garage for the remainder of the race, this penalty didnt come before he was have engine trouble anyway on lap 238. I believe the best line I ever heard was from one of the MRN Broadcasters when Truex was on A. J. Allmendinger for the lead and he said that Truex was on Allmendinger like a rottweiler on a rump roast. Kurt Busch had a first of his Sprint Cup career on Sunday he raced without a main sponsor on his Phoenix Racing number 51. This was the last race that was run on the Kansas track in its current state. Repaving of the track began as Denny Hamlin pulled on to Victory Lane. The banking will go from being 15 degrees all the way around the track to being 17 degrees on the low side and 20 degrees up along the wall. There will be a Road Course built on the infield, and the infield track is set to host a Grand Am race next year. NASCAR has been promised that the paving will be complete for tire testing in September and the Chase race in October. With only two cautions I would have to say that this was not the best race I have seen. I am sure there are many more of you out there that have the same views on this as I do, without all the accidents this sport has become somewhat of a drag. What is all of that safety equipment for if the new rules keep them from needing them? Lets not get off on that I only have so much room here in the paper. We will see if the new rules hinder the action at Talladega. There were four green flag stops that the drivers had to take for gas, tires, etc., these stops were caused by the lack of cautions in the race. The first of these green flag stops came on laps 43 to 48. Caution on came early on lap 52 when Clint Bowyer spun out in turn four. Then in lap 58 Bowyer and Kyle Busch made contact but both stayed out on the track and there was no caution. Bowyer made it to lap 71 before NASCAR inspectors notices smoke coming from the right front of his car. Lap 76 started the bad luck for the drivers as A.J. Allmendinger reported problems with his engine. Kevin Harvick started reporting that he was running out of gas and started a round of green flag stops that lasted from lap 90 to lap 100. Caution two, the last caution of the race, came when the drivers started reporting debris on the track on lap 132. Bowyers car had finally had enough I guess and the engine blew on lap 139 and he took the car to the garage on lap 140. Laps 177183 brought on the third round of green flag stops. The four laps later on lap 187, after all those drivers had to make the green flag stops, Juan Montoya hit the wall, fortunately not ticking off to many of the drivers, NASCAR didnt call a caution. Ryan Newman brought his car on to Pit Road on lap 196 with troubles. Then on lap 215 Tony Stewart rubbed the wall but stayed out on the track to finish the race. The fourth and final round of green flag stops came on laps 220-233. On lap 244 one of the drivers started reporting oil on the track. NASCAR Officials looked and said the track was clear.Hamlin nabs win from Truex Jr.CECILIA SPEARS547-4914 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County School District approved a Principal Evaluation System during their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 17, that evaluates principals in the same manner as they have been with teachers. This evaluation is 50 percent based on administration evaluation and 50 percent student Value-Added Model, which uses each students test scores in core subjects and compares the performance of each student to the expected achievement of each student. The Principal Evaluation System is now a state requirement. The School District also approved of the revised K-12 Teacher VAM Scores to include credit for all children moving from red (high risk assessments) to green (low risk assessments). Also approved was the 2012 Summer VPK Contract with Littlest Angel Early Learning Center. The School Board is required by the state to offer Summer VPK and Littlest Angel Early Learning Center is the only day care center near by that has a certi ed teacher on staff. School District Attorney Lucas Taylor gave an update on the pending agreement of giving the Ponce de Leon Agricultural Building to the Town of Ponce de Leon. Ive sent their lawyer an email, but I have yet to hear from them, Taylor said. I basically told her what we wanted to do and that we wouldnt take any action until weve heard back from them.

From Staff ReportsCHIPLEY More than 2,000 visitors to Falling Waters State Park were transported back in time during the Legends & Lore festival, held Friday and Saturday at the park. On Friday, the rain held off as hundreds of students from Washington and Holmes counties visited the booths and got a taste of living history. Park of cials welcomed 629 schoolchildren and 1,087 general admission visitors on Friday for the historical happenings. Bad weather on Saturday curtailed a bit of the action, but area residents supported the park, said Amy Sweeney, program director for Friends of Falling Waters Park. It went great, and our fundraising went quite well, she said. Despite the threat of rain, we had a real good turnout. Attractions at the event included live cannon re with civil war re-enactors, blacksmiths, quilters, a cracker cowboy, gristmills, candle makers, int knappers, butter makers, a wild West shootout and much more. Many crafters and artisans were in attendance, and some of the unique artistic creations found throughout the festival included chainsaw carvings, basket weavers, paintings and jewelry. Animals were a hit with the children, including cows, goat, chicken and a few other animals from the farm. There were also venomous snakes and an alligator on display for visitors. Falling Waters State Park was opened on March 26, 1962, and to commemorate its 50th anniversary, there will be a plaque dedicated to the last 50 years as the park looks toward a promising future. This event over the years has been supported by the community, including major support from the Washington County Tourist Development Council and Community South Credit Union. Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of Legends & Lore, Sweeney said, adding, We hope to make it even bigger and better.Wednesday, APRIL 25 2012 Washington, make it even bigger and better.

Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3While ligament tears can cause serious setbacks in an athletes career, a similar injury can mean surgery and rehabilitation for your frisky kitty or romping Rover. According to Dr. Sharon Kerwin, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, anterior cruciate ligament tears or cranial cruciate ligament injuries, as they are referred to in animals, occur almost as often as they do in humans. Cats and dogs have the same ligaments that we have in our knees, says Kerwin. The cruciate ligament stabilizes your femur and your tibia so you dont get too much motion between those two bones. CCL tears in cats often occur the same way ACL tears occur in humans. Often, there is some traumatic injury that occurs as a result of jumping from high places, playing or getting the animals leg caught in something. It takes a fair bit of force to rupture a cruciate ligament, and it tends to occur more often in overweight cats, says Kerwin. However, in dogs, this injury is often the result of a chronic degeneration of the ligament and occurs much more frequently than it does in cats. In dogs, we think the injury may be related to weight and body structure, meaning that some large breeds such as Rottweilers, Labradors and Chow Chows, may be predisposed to CCL injuries, said Kerwin. In some cases, we think its either the shape of their tibia or the shape of their femur that predisposes them to this injury. A ruptured ligament is usually characterized by limping or inactivity. In cats, they will not want to play the way they used to, and dogs will often appear lame and sit awkwardly with their leg sticking out, signaling a possible knee problem. Kerwin says if your pet shows signs of an injured leg, schedule an appointment with your veterinarian who will conduct a lameness exam in order to diagnose the problem. The injury is often treated in cats with medical management by placing overweight cats on a strict diet with exercise restriction for three to six weeks, followed by a check-up measuring progress. If the injury fails to heal, surgery is often recommended to explore and stabilize the joint. But when dogs are aficted with CCL injuries, many times the best option is surgery as quickly as possible. Dogs often dont do well with medical management, the injury will often worsen over time as the arthritis in the knee builds, explains Kerwin. Part of the problem is they tend to suffer cartilage tears that we dont often see in cats, so we recommend exploring the knee and cleaning it through an arthroscopy just like they would do in a human and then stabilizing it. Dogs often require 812 weeks of recovery including strict rest and rehabilitation. Once your pet has undergone the recommended period of exercise restriction, it is important to encourage it to exercise its leg with slow leash walks or through playtime activities. The biggest way to prevent CCL tears is to keep your pet at a proper weight, Kerwin says. It is very easy for animals to gain weight, especially if they spend most of their time indoors, because they do not get the same level of exercise. Your veterinarian can advise you on the proper weight for your dog or cat.ABOUT PET TALKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

And, the acts of greed and covetousness are found frequently in the New Testament. Plato and Aristotle used the word to mean wanting more than your fair share, and Aristotle suggested that all injustice is a form of pleonexia. In Platos Republic, one of the dialogues participants, Thrasymachus, says that pleonexia is the natural state of man, and Thrasymachus view that might makes right. Recently, some have suggested that the economic and social woes seen around the world can be traced to people, and nations, wanting more than their fair share. Both individuals and groups can be guilty of wanting too much. Wanting to live in a house that is bigger than you can afford is wanting too much, but so is thinking that everyone in your country should be able to retire at the age of 50 or 55 with down to what is the fair share that everybody should pay. Knowing exactly what your fair share is can be readily gave and expected little in return.Take heed, and beware of all covetousness;for a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.

From your children, Pat, Jack and Sam Two block ad Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Page 4By THE REV. JAMES L SNYDERIt is not that ignorance is so bad; it is just so inconvenient. Case in point. A while back, I found a coupon in the mail for two free nights in Daytona Beach. Look, my dear, I squealed, with delight to my wife, We have two free nights in Daytona Beach. Immediately we checked our calendars and selected a time when we could take advantage of our windfall, without running into all those spring-breakers at the beach. Personally, I am not too crazy about Daytona Beach. I am crazy about free. Consulting the parsonage exchequer, we could afford free. Upon leaving the house, all I could do was hum a tune, Two Whole Nights at the Beach ... Before I nished, my wife suggested I quit humming. Of course, with her suggestions always comes the phrase, And if you dont Ill ... Well, you know the rest. I took her suggestion, but I was humming on the inside. Arriving at our motel in good time, we checked in and settled down for two days and two nights of absolute relaxation whatever that is. The room was terri c and in the corner was an old friend a Lazyboy recliner. With the recliner and a remote, I settled in for some serious goo ng off for the next two days. Admittedly, I am not gifted in many areas, if any. My wife, however, says I goof off better than anyone she knows. One takes pride in what one does best. Next to our motel was a restaurant called The Wing House. On the outside it looked like a nice place and, unlike my wife, I am not choosy about where I eat. Any old greasy spoon suits me just ne, thank you. I must say I was completely unprepared for what I was about to experience in the restaurant next to our motel. On the second day of our mini-vacation, I decided to run next door for some carry out. My wife wanted some soup and I fancied something a little more substantial. When I am on an errand, especially one as important as my supper, I am usually focused on one thing and one thing only. I wanted to run into the restaurant, give my order, get out as quickly and simply as possible and get back to my Lazyboy and remote. It is my two days off; I will squander them if I want to. I did not notice anything strange when I rst walked in. I focused on the menu. As I Looked up from the menu, I was shocked to the core from what I saw. I am known for dropping everything from dishes to keys. This time I dropped my lower jaw to the oor. It took some time for me to gingerly pick up my lower jaw. I just noticed the young girl standing before me greeting me and inquiring about my order. I heard nothing but, unfortunately, I saw more than I expected. Let me try to describe this as delicately as I can. The only thing I can rationally think of is, when this young girl dressed in the morning her costume t quite well. I hardly think anyone would put on clothes that did not t. However, during the course of the day, being a young person, she must have experienced a rather dramatic spurt of growth, causing her clothes to be at least three sizes too small. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, the only thing keeping her breathing was the lack of material around her chest area. Otherwise, she could have suffocated. Her clothes were so tight, not to mention skimpy (and I didnt), that I wanted to take the shirt off my back and give it to her. I mumbled something rather incoherently and said as loud as possible, and make it to go, please. After giving my order, I did not know what to do with my eyes. You can look at the ceiling only so long before people begin inquiring into your family history. Other young girls, in the restaurant, I found in the same condition. There must be a growth spurt epidemic going around. My order nally came and I quickly paid for it, made like an egg and scrambled for the sanctity of my motel room. I slammed the door behind and paused to collect whatever was lagging behind me, happy I made it to safety. No sooner had my heart reclaimed its tranquil rhythm than I heard an anemic knock at the door. When I opened the door, much to my chagrin (and believe me I was not grinning), stood my semi-clad waitress with a restaurant package in her hand. I felt as though I had been run over by a Mac truck. Im terribly sorry, sir, but we mixed up your order. Heres your order. We exchanged bags and one glance at my wife told me that, along with other things, I would be eating crow. Later that evening, as I prepared for bed, I took comfort in the words of the Apostle Paul. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magni ed in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (Philippians 1:20 KJV.) Ignorance about some things is inconvenient, but ignorance about Christ is fatal. The Rev. James L.
