business aspect of the job or the emotional side of things. I will be able to attend legislative sessions, school activities, extracurricular activities, and answer any phone call or emails personally, Owens said. I pledge to remain open-minded to every tax payer, board member, staff member, student, teacher, custodian, cafeteria worker, and bus driver of Holmes County. I strive to be a part of a team whose main goal is to educate all the children of Holmes County to their maximum potential in a safe and cost effective environ ment, said Owens. Owens was born and raised in Holmes County and has been married to Howard Owens for 41 years. They have three children and two grandchildren. Her husband owns Howard Ow ens Construction, Inc. She is the daughter of Bonnie Carnley and the late Festus Carnley. Owens attended Poplar Springs High School and graduated as the 1970 class Valedictorian. I continued my educa tion at Chipola and gradu ated with honors from Troy State University with a mas ters degree in Elementary Education, Owens said in a news release. I also have experience in accounting and being a tax professional. My family and I are very in volved in our church, Little Rock Assembly of God here in Bonifay. I serve as adult Sunday school teacher and the church secretary. One of my goals in life has always been to help people who are in need. I strive to attain this goal and stay involved in the com munity and have been for quite some time, she said. I have been or currently am involved with PTO, the advisory board for Ameri can Cancer Society, Garden Club, Hospice volunteer, Gideon Auxiliary, member of the advisory council for the Area Agency on Aging for North Florida, Inc. and a convalescent volunteer. Owens said she followed her passion for education and became a classroom teacher for 36 years. Dur ing my tenure, I survived many changes culturally as well as in the state man dates. I have been a super vising teacher for young teachers, grade chairman, spelling bee coordinator, Tropicanna speech coach, National Beta judge and coordinator, Beta sponsor for 22 years, Florida Beta Sponsor for the entire state and the rst ever Florida Sponsor of the Year, Owens said. None of these honors were as satisfying as help ing children solve a math problem or teaching them a new lesson for the rst time. There is a great deal of satisfaction in seeing chil dren succeed. Retiring after 36 years of teaching, Owens said she is still passionate about edu cation. I want to see every child succeed in the class room as well as in life. This passion guided me to use my knowledge and experi ence from the classroom to make the decision to run for school board member. I strongly feel that with my determination, experi ence, and time, I could be a great advocate for the children in Holmes Coun ty, she said. It is my goal and belief that every child should receive a quality education. Quality educa tion is the building block for a successful life. Every child counts. The children today are the leaders of tomorrow. Los ing a child to lack of educa tion can only lead to nega tive impacts during their lifetime. We need to bring our children up in an envi ronment where they can receive equal, quality and efcient education helping them be the best they can be, Owens said.

In 2010 the Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce was No. 1 in the Florida Panhandle in clearing crimes according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Brown said. In a small department with limited resources, that made me very proud of my staff for their hard work and dedication. Since July of 2011, the Sheriffs Of ce has led approximately 1,246 criminal charges for various offenses. In many of those, residents of Holmes County had been victimized, Brown said. From the period January 2009 through June 30, 2011, the Sheriffs Of ce recorded approximately 227 drug-related arrests. From July 2011 through the current date the Sheriffs Of ce has recorded roughly 206 drug-related charges, Brown said. That a total of around 433 drug-related charges since I took of ce. Since July 2011 the Sheriffs Of ce has led approximately 101 methamphetamine-related charges. Approximately 12 of those methamphetamine charges are for the more serious offense of traf cking in methamphetamine, Brown said. If re-elected, I promise to continue to be vigilant in my duties to make Holmes County safer by continuing to take a very effective community-based approach to combating drugs. In an effort to prosecute property crimes, the Sheriffs Of ce has made many arrests over the past few years, Brown said. Since July 2011 they have led approximately 43 burglary charges. The Sheriffs Ofce also had led approximately 70 theft charges since July 2011. I will continue my open door policy and I welcome your comments and concerns. No appointment necessary, Brown said. Please allow me the opportunity to continue in my 27 years of law enforcement here in Holmes County by re-electing me as your sheriff.

Call 638-0212. Does anyone ever have crazy days like mine was last Saturday? Perhaps its because I am ADD or ADHD or something else (hopefully not Alzheimers). First, the alarm awakens me at 6 a.m. I have to go pick up the pickers. So I get up, and I think I am going to be sick. (I am never sick. It must be the muscle relaxer the doctor just prescribed.) But I go on and pick up the workers. Maybe after I have breakfast, I wont feel sick. Breakfast over, I go out to pack blueberries for the Piggly Wiggly. Glen will deliver them, so I go in the house thinking Ill get back in the bed and go ahead and be sick. On the way in, however, I notice a puddle beside the freezer in the garage. Every thing in there has thawed. I ask my life mate to get the Rainbow down for me to suction out the water. After checking the contents, I decide to make preserves from the figs, which are completely thawed. So I gather jars and sugar, etc., and start that process. (That freezer contains mostly fruit juice or fruit frozen for jam and jelly.) Because the cartons of fat free half and half my friend had scrounged somewhere was thawed, I also decided to make home made blueberry ice cream. I am thinking, Ill sell homemade blueberry ice cream at the blueberry shed for Memorial Day weekend. It will surely be better than the $4 cup I bought at the County Fair. So I bring the cartons of half and half in and put them in the refrigerator until I finish the freezer cleanup and the fig-preserving. By then its time to fix us some lunch. I still think I need to lie down, but the nausea is wearing off or Ive been too busy to notice it. In the meantime, Docs Market needs some blueberries, but Jack and Glen pack those. I need several grocery items that I can pick up as I deliver to Docs. Im still aiming to make ice cream. (Glen has picked up the ice when he delivered berries to the Pig.) When I come home from Docs, the men are surprised when I bring in a crate of sweet corn, which was nice and fresh and too good a deal to pass up. Besides, the beach goers will probably buy it when they stop for blueberries. If not, Ill freeze it in the new freezer I may have to buy. By 3 p.m., my kitchen is a disaster with lunch dishes not put away, groceries not put away, g preserves on the counter, two thirds of a watermelon by the sink and the ice cream churn grinding away in the sink. The front door bell rings, and a young lady is frantically waving a $10 bill, asking if we have some gasoline she can buy. On her way to the dance recital, shes run out of gas. I direct her to the barn where Jack can help her. Hes busy with a customer, but he gives her the gasoline and tells her just to ll the can up and bring it back when she has time. By now, I have decided I am not sick. I have decided blueberry customers will not be eating my blueberry ice cream. While it churns, I put up the groceries, wrap the watermelon and put it in the barn refrigerator and throw the dishes in the dish washer, label the preserves and put them in a box to take to the blueberry shed. I check the garage freezer and it is re-freezing. The door had been left ajar. By 6 p.m., I collapse in my recliner, not a foot from the T.V., and settle down to my Saturday night routine of watching RFD T.V., Renos Old Time music hour is on At 9:15 p.m., I am awakened by the phone ringing. I slept right through The Marty Stewart Show, The Pressleys, Mid West Country, Branson on The Road, The Cumberland Highlanders show, and Molly Bs Polka Show is in full swing, and Jack is ready for bed. That two-hour nap was a healer. I am reminded that there is some advantage to having Attention Decit Disorder or whatever it is that I have. I start so many projects, I do eventually nish some of them. (By the way, the beach goers did want the sweet corn.)

WERE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD! Allen Barnes 21 Years Experience By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Gov. Rick Scott made a stop in Chipley Monday to meet with Wash ington and Holmes County ofcials and residents to answer questions. We work for you, this is your money were spend ing, Scott said. This is the kind of government accountability I want us to have. Were spending your dollars, and you expect us to spend them well. Scott weighed in on questions about educa tion and the state budget, frivolous lawsuits and tort reform. The Legislature wants to eliminate frivolous law suits, but we have to be able to show how the lawsuits are costing the taxpayer money, the governor said. You have to go to Tallahas see and explain how this af fects the average taxpayer. Once you can show how your legislation can save money, then you can get the support. Scott said that if local ofcials nd state employ ees or ofcials not being responsive to their needs, they should contact him at the governors ofce. Call me, I will return your calls, he said. I spend most of my day on the phone. He gave as an example, getting a state permit. We have procedures and rules in place, and we have them for a reason. But if a pro cess that should take 30 days takes two years, then something is wrong. The government isnt there to cause problems. Asked about unemploy ment benets abuse, Scott noted that the long-term unemployment benets are paid with federal funds, and since the states unem ployment rate has dropped below 9 percent those longterm benets are likely to be reduced. When I rst took of ce, there were 568,000 people on unemployment in the state, Scott said. That number is down to 340,000. He also noted that there are also 243,000 open jobs listed in the state work force system. On education, Scott said he prefers to spend tax dol lars on college programs that lead to employment an opinion that got him in trouble with his own daughter last year. Do we need to use your tax dollars to educate more people that cant get jobs in anthropology? Scott asked a group of business leaders last fall. His daugh ter, Jordan Kandah, has an anthropology degree. She called him up and said she was the top Google story on Yahoo News once the AP reported the story. I have an anthropol ogy degree, she said. And I asked, Hows that working out for you? the governor said. She is currently pursu ing an MBA degree, Scott added. Scott said he wants col leges and universities to graduate more students from in-demand areas in STEM (science, technol ogy, engineering and math) elds. Why spend your tax dollars on areas where graduates cant get work? the governor asked. Forty percent of University of Florida graduates are now graduating in debt. If they cant get a job, then they are in for a tough time. Washington County School District Superinten dent Sandra Cook pointed out that 75 percent of the students in her district were not planning on going to college. I agree with the standards, and the academ ic rigor, but we also need a track for students who are not going to college. Cook said the STEM classes may discourage students who are not college-bound and result in them not n ishing school. When asked about STEM programs increas ing tuition rates, Scott said I dont believe we ought to be raising tuition. In April, Scott vetoed House Bill 7129, which was written to give universities the power to seek unlim ited tuition increases from their board of trustees and the state Board of Gover nors, especially University of Florida and Florida State University. Scott said universities should examine where they are spending money and balance their budgets rather than raising tuition. Had Scott signed HB 7129, universities that met 11 of 14 performancebased benchmarks would have been allowed to ask the Florida Board of Gov ernors for hikes beyond a current 15 percent cap, ac cording to the Miami Her ald. The criteria included high GPAs of incoming freshmen and a high amount of research activ ity, for example. Only the University of Florida and Florida State University would have qualied. UF and FSU were hop ing to use additional reve nues to enhance academic programs. Scott called for further review of the states uni versities and how they spend money. Besides education, Med icaid funding is one of the biggest expenses the state faces, as well as one of the greatest challenges. Medicaid reform has to be a priority, the gov ernor said. Medicaid costs have tripled, and counties throughout the state are having difculty paying their Medicaid costs. Scott signed HB 5301 in March, which changed the way counties were billed for Medicaid costs. Under the new law, counties could be forced to pay the state an additional $325.5 million in Medicaid costs, accord ing to the Miami Herald. Scott signed the bill over objections from county of cials who had urged him to veto it. County ofcials say it will require local taxpayers to pay for mistakes made by the states electronic billing system, according to the Associated Press. Counties are required to pay a share of the Medicaid costs for their residents.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Wednesday, June 6, 2012 If you enjoy catching dolphin, now is your chance to do so without having to go very far offshore. Saragossa grass has started coming to shore and along with it come dolphins eating the small fish and crabs that live in the grass. The next time you are out in the Gulf and come upon a stretch of this grass, drop a handful on the deck of your boat and watch what comes out. Crabs and shrimp will be jumping around. If you have an aquarium, they provide suitable specimens to keep alive and take home. Some fine dolphins are being caught in this grass and around the buoys. The dolphins follow the weed patches all the way to the beach, where the grass dies as well as the small creatures that live in it. Some people still are shocked when you tell them you caught a dolphin, because they think you mean a porpoise. We have fooled around with the names of animals and fish so much we really dont know what someone is talking about when they mention dolphin When I was growing up, I never heard that word used in reference to a porpoise. They have started calling porpoises, dolphins, and it is so confusing we now have to call dolphins mahi-mahi, the name Hawaiians use. Im not from Hawaii, and I dont call dolphins mahi-mahi. Dolphins are also called dorado, but I guess that name isnt as cute as mahimahi. Its just like the political correctness police who demand that the species we called jewfish forever now must be referred to as goliath grouper. Whether you call them mahi-mahi, dorado or dolphin, this sh is within casting range of small boats. You should not have to go more than two or three miles offshore to catch them. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission P hil Manor remembers the day like it was yesterday. It was late spring in 1993 when he was working by himself on the Apalachicola River Wildlife and Environmental Area tearing out a beaver dam on a wetland. Manor, who at the time had worked four years as a wildlife biologist with the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission, was almost through with his work when a 2.5to-3-footlong cottonmouth struck the index finger on his left hand. Almost immediately his finger and hand began to throb and burn. Manor knew he had to get to a doctor. He cranked up his four-wheeler, drove himself to the Howard Creek compound and in a few minutes was at Gulf Pines Hospital in Port St. Joe. He was given five vials of antivenin to negate the effects of the poisonous bite, but it took weeks for the swelling to go down in his left hand. Every year across the United States an estimated 7,000-8,000 people are bitten by poisonous snakes. About five people die from the bites, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While most people see snakes around water and automatically assume they are cottonmouths, thats generally not the case, Dr. John Himes, a wildlife biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) said. Probably 80 percent to 90 percent of the snakes people see in and around water are harmless water snakes, Himes said. If you pick them up, they may bite because they dont like being handled, but they are not poisonous. Himes said both cottonmouths and the five species of water snakes found in the Panhandle play an important ecological role by feeding on dead or dying fish, amphibians and small invertebrates. All told, there are only six species of poisonous snakes and more than 40 non-poisonous species found in Florida. In addition to the cottonmouth, the list of poisonous snakes includes the canebrake rattlesnake, Eastern diamondback, pygmy rattlesnake, copperhead and coral snake. The canebrake, also called a timber rattler, is the rarest of the group. Specimens are occasionally found in Northwest Florida from the Olustee area to Alachua County. Canebrakes are more common in Georgia and Alabama and Southeastern states. The more common poisonous snakes in Florida include the cottonmouth, Eastern diamondback and pygmy rattlesnakes. The latter two are usually found in more rural settings where theres ample cover. Himes said copperheads are usually found north of Highway 20 in the Panhandle and commonly in low-lying areas along creeks and rivers. He said they are expertly camouflaged. Coral snakes are the only species of the group whose venom affects the central nervous system. They have small fangs, in comparison with the other poisonous snakes, and coral snake bites are fairly rare. Coral snakes are inoffensive and almost secretive, Himes said. You find them around yard litter or decaying leaves and such, but if a person wears gloves to do their yard work, they have nothing to fear from this snake. Although many people are afraid of all snakes, Himes said its important to remember poisonous and nonpoisonous species play an important role in the environment by preying on rats, mice, small reptiles and amphibians, rabbits and even each other in some cases. Himes said people, particularly those new to Florida and who fear snakes, should consider obtaining a book or going online to look up the reptiles and amphibians of Florida. WATCH OUT! Be on the lookout for poisonous and non-poisonous snakes Special to Florida Freedom Newspapers John David Patton Park in Carrabelle is the recipient of a $5,000 Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Gopher Tortoise Habitat Management Grant. Patton Park is a 55-acre parcel consisting of pine atwoods and planted slash pine with scattered wetlands. It was acquired by the city in 2004 with Florida Forever funds and is managed as a nature park with a picnic pavilion, trails, native plant gardens and restrooms. The habitat management project to optimize the area for resident gopher tortoises began with an onsite meeting of FWC biologists and Division of Forestry (DOF) prescribed burn specialists, Carrabelle City Administrator Courtney Millender and Sea Oats Garden Club President Lesley Cox to prepare a scope of work plan for fall 2011 and spring 2012. Health concerns for nearby residents from the 2007 prescribed burn led to a decision to mow instead of burn. To ensure the safety of the gopher tortoises, the garden club surveyed and agged six burrows and the city work crew handcleared around the entrances. Approximately, 25 acres of uplands were mowed by DOF using a bush-hog in October 2011. In May 2012, Odie Lazlo of Crowder Excavating rehabilitated the re line separating the pine trees from the ti ti swamps. Since mowing may be substituted for burning, these management tools are critical in the success of reducing fuel load and encouraging vegetative species that the gopher tortoises need to thrive. Gopher tortoises are plant-eating scavengers. Their diets contains more than 300 species of plants. They also eat mushrooms and fruits, including blackberries and paw paws. They usually get water from the food they eat, but occasionally drink standing water in times of extreme drought. The gopher tortoises can be found throughout Florida and southern areas of Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama and the tip of eastern Louisiana. They dig burrows up to 50 feet long, tunneling three feet below the surface of the soil in dry habitats. These tunnels provide shelter and protection from weather and re for hundreds of other species. The gopher tortoise grows on average to be slightly less than one foot long and weighs about 29 pounds. Since July 7, 1987, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has listed the gopher tortoise as threatened. Its status is listed as under review in Florida. The University of Florida Conservation Clinic Center for Governmental Responsibility at Levin College of Law described the main threats to the tortoise population as habitat loss through human development, use as a pet or for meat, relocation causing population disruption and disease caused by relocation. The Sea Oats Garden Club will continue to monitor the gopher tortoise burrows and work to rehabilitate the native plants gardens. If you are interested in helping, contact Lesley Cox at 697-5555.

SENIORS from page A1 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Bonifay Kiwanis Club welcomed the robotics class from Bethlehem High School to their meeting on May 30 to have then speak about their resent experience as second place winner and winner of the Judges Choice Award for this years STEM TECH Olympiad 2012 battlebot competition. Seven students from the robotic class made their way to Miami during the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 25 to compete against other robots from high schools and colleges from across the nation. Armed with only their wits and a 120 pound robot named Rhinoceros Prime Engaged, they eagerly traveled the 600 miles to STEM TECH Olympiad 2012 which was hosting the National BOTSIQ nals, said the students Math and robotics teacher, Gary Driver. The event was hosted by USATL, the United States Alliance for Technology Literacy. Driver said there was more being done at the fourday event. There were numerous competitions being conducted, including Lego League, VEXing Challenge, Assistive Device Design, College Design, Computer Programming, and Video Game Programming in addition to the college and high school BattleBots competing in the BOTSIQ open class and educational class. He said that by Sunday afternoon, Rhinoceros Prime Engaged was the only robot that had not lost a match in the double elimination bracket system of the high school division, which quickly caught and kept the eyes of the judges. Each ght they had knocked out their opponents with the longest match lasting about two minutes of the three minute round, however they had to beat the robot coming back from the losers bracket to be named champ, said Driver. The Miami high school bot Diesel had lost in the rst round but managed to work its way through the losers bracket and stood in the way of a clean sweep. The rst match went the full three minutes and the judges decision went to Diesel. Driver explained that since that was Rhinos rst loss, a second three-minute round was scheduled and in the second ght against Diesel neither bot was able to knock out the other bot. Once again it went to a judges decision, said Driver. This time it was a split decision but the victory went to Diesel. Rhinoceros Prime Engaged had come up a little short but enjoyed the second place standing when during the awards ceremony they were named the Judges Choice Award winner for the best overall robot at the competition. Driver said that Judges Choice Award was more then meets the eye. This is the most coveted award and is based on design, durability, aggression, team spirit, and robot ability, said Driver. There were over 200 robots competing in the four weight classes, said Driver, and after nishing the high school class contest without much damage, the team agreed to accept a challenge from the college division winners, The University of Miami. Also during this meeting scholarships were presented to students from across Holmes County.

One South Bank makes donation to WHTC Special to Extra BONIFAY Recently, the Bonifay Kiwanis Club welcomed Kyle Hudson as a guest speaker. Hudson presented a program titled Autism, Its Getting Closer To Home in which he educated the members of the prevalence of Autism in the United States. Autism affects one in every 110 children in the U.S., said Hudson. He also indicated that this number is steadily increasing as time passes. In addition, Hudson provided information about the warning signs of Autism such as repetitive motions, delayed speech patterns, restricted interest in play items, hyper-acute senses, and lack of desire for social interaction. Autism is a developmental disorder, said Hudson. It is not indicative of a persons cognitive ability; rather, it affects the way a person interacts socially. An individual with Autism views social setting through a different set of eyes than you or I. Hudson developed his passion for spreading Autism awareness through his experience of teaching children with Autism during the last 10 years at Ponce de Leon High School. His passion was ampli ed when his own son, Ashton, was diagnosed with Aspergers Disorder, a high functioning form of Autism. Hudson has devoted much time and energy to the study of the disorders on the Autism Spectrum and is nearing completion of his second Masters Degree majoring in Psychology focused on Applied Behavior Analysis. Hudson says he enjoys volunteering his services of speaking to church and civic groups in an effort to better educate individuals on the subject of Autism Spectrum Disorders. If there is an organization or group that would bene t from this presentation, please contact Hudson at 373-9841 or 548-9000.

A limited number of each title is available in the front of ce at the high school for check-out. All titles are very popular, and easily attainable from bookstores, libraries, and for e-reader. Aside from just reading the assigned novel, students must complete a written assignment. Assignments will be handed out in English classes before exams. Extra copies will be available in the front of ce over the summer. Freshmen must read The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd or Animal Farm by George Orwell. Sophomores must read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Juniors must read The Old Man and the Sea by Earnest Hemingway and the seniors must read Night by Elie Wiesel. Summer reading list announced for Vernon High School If you are around horses or a stable lately, you may notice an increase in ies, such as stable ies, house ies, horn ies and horse ies. Dr. Leslie Easterwood, clinical assistant professor for the large animal clinical sciences department at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, said ies are worse in the summertime, and this year they are particularly bad. Last year it was dry and hot so it didnt seem quite as bad, but this year weve had rain and the temperatures havent been as high, so there seems to be an increase, Easterwood said. Flies can be a nuisance to a horse because the horse tries to swat and get away from them. Other than annoying the horse, the biting ies can cause physical irritations. Often, the ies congregate around the horses face trying drink the uid at the corner of the horses eyes. Because ies carry bacteria on their feet, they deposit bacteria, larvae and parasites on the horses face and around the eyes when they are looking for moisture. The biggest thing is the transfer [of bacteria], and all ies can be bothersome, Easterwood said. Flies often deposit habronema larvae on open wounds or horses eyes. As the larvae migrate through the tissue, they cause open sores, and that is very common in horses this time of year, Easterwood said. Horse ies are even worse than normal house and stable ies. Easterwood said these ies are at least 10 times the size of a house y, have big mouths and transfer more diseases than a house or stable y. They can transfer diseases, such as equine infectious anemia, a very fatal disease that we dont have a cure for, she said. Easterwood said these irritations, sores, diseases and transfer of bacteria are the main reason it is important to have proper y control. Good y control extends to the face, not just spraying the body, but using stuff safe to use by their eyes, she said. Easterwood recommended using sprays and ointments to repel ies. Ointment can be applied to a cloth and used to wipe the horses eyes. The repellent can be bought over the counter or through a veterinarian. Different environmental factors determine which product should be used for individual needs. If there is a bad y problem, you would be better off to use a product every day that you can reapply frequently to keep the population down. As opposed to if you have a very good environmental program, you can apply the longer lasting product, Easterwood said. She added that most people reapply y products daily. She warned, however, that many products claim the repellent lasts longer than others. We have found that very few [products] last as long as they say they will, Easterwood said. She explained that all y repellent works on the various types of ies. It repels all of [the ies] and mosquitoes, Easterwood said. She also suggested covering the horse with y sheets for their bodies and y masks for their faces. Other options include an automatic y spray system in barns, moving manure and trash piles away from the horses or drying out the manure pile. Protect horses from increasing y problem

It is quite obvious that sanity is not a prerequisite of religion. If it were, most religions would go out of business within the 30-day money back guarantee period. Every religion has some sort of litmus test for faith. It is in this area of religion that smacks so loudly of insanity. Superstition, regardless of the basis, is one great common denominator of all religion. It is not that I mind superstition. I just do not want it associated with my religion. I read in the newspaper headlines just this week a pastor was killed by a rattlesnake bite. I had almost forgotten this sort of thing went on in our sophisticated, enlightened world. As a young preacher, I was visiting a congregation in Kentucky as the guest speaker for that Sunday. Never mind the town or the church, that is beside the point. I got to the church a little early and was escorted around the church looking at the facilities. Then they took me into the sanctuary where I could look at the pulpit and the sanctuary where I would be preaching. Being the observant person that I am, I noticed a basket next to the pulpit. I had never seen such a basket before him all my life. I really did not know too much about the church, and now I cannot remember exactly why I was invited to preach there. Be that as it may, I was greatly curious about the basket next to the pulpit. I did not know if it was a wastebasket or if perhaps it was the offering basket and the congregation would ll it up before the service was over. So, I asked my host what the basket was next to the pulpit. Thats where we keep the rattlesnake, he said rather passively. Say what! That basket there is where we keep the rattlesnake that we use in our service. I can take a joke and give it back with the best of them. I responded with a hearty laugh. Ha, ha, ha, I said good-naturedly. Really, what is that basket for? I could see my host was not the least bit amused with my persistent inquiry. He said rather sternly, thats where we keep our rattlesnake for our church service. He then stared at me for a few moments and then said, I dont think well need it in our service today. You dont look like you have enough faith. Inside me, I sighed a deep sigh of relief. There is a time when I want to bolster my faith, but in the circumstance before me, I did not want enough faith to handle some rattlesnake. One of the tenants of my religion is to run as fast as I can away from any and all rattlesnakes. It is one part of my religion I take rather seriously. My host tried explaining to me what was going on. He pointed to a passage in Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. My rst reaction was to think he was pulling the wool over my eyes, so to speak, and I almost laughed out loud. I caught myself in time when I realized this man was serious. According to him, he could have enough faith in God to pick up the poisonous rattlesnake and if it bit him, it would not hurt him at all. According to their religion, when they are truly in the Spirit, they have the power to pick up a poisonous rattlesnake, and if it bites you, it will not hurt you. They keep the basket containing a rattlesnake in the front of the church for when such an occasion arises. I was hoping it would not arise during my time in the pulpit. All during my sermon, I could not help casting a wistful eye in the general direction of the basket next to the pulpit. At one point, I thought I did see the basket move. I yelled at this point, which excited the congregation thinking I had gotten in the spirit, and then everybody cast a wistful eye in the direction of the basket. I respect other peoples views on everything, I suppose. However, there are some things I have dif culty wrapping my tired brain around. This has to be one of them. How you can pull the bit about the rattlesnake out of that verse of scripture and ignore the rest of it is really beyond me. Religion will make you do many silly things that have no sanity behind it. Many people just go through the motions not really knowing why they are doing what they are doing. At least the snake handlers have a little bit of excitement in their services. Nothing I want to experience, but then who am I to criticize? I rest my faith upon the Scripture. Particularly, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith keeps me away from poisonous rattlesnakes. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Thus every language is a world view, but also the conditions of making experience intelligible. As Heidegger put it, Language is the house of being. The primor the Greek word logos which is often trans lated as word, although the concept of logos is much richer than the English word. Logos is the principle of intelligibility underlying things, but also the bridge between the spiritual realm and the physical realm. Words are concrete, audible and visible expres sions of abstract concepts. A word is a mate rialized idea and thus the concept of Logos or Word was a natural idea to express and explain the second person of the trinity, i.e. Jesus. Understanding this gives one a sense of the sublime power of language to both create and to make the world intelligible.

business aspect of the job or the emotional side of things. I will be able to attend legislative sessions, school activities, extracurricular activities, and answer any phone call or emails personally, Owens said. I pledge to remain open-minded to every tax payer, board member, staff member, student, teacher, custodian, cafeteria worker, and bus driver of Holmes County. I strive to be a part of a team whose main goal is to educate all the children of Holmes County to their maximum potential in a safe and cost effective environment, said Owens. Owens was born and raised in Holmes County and has been married to Howard Owens for 41 years. They have three children and two grandchildren. Her husband owns Howard Owens Construction, Inc. She is the daughter of Bonnie Carnley and the late Festus Carnley. Owens attended Poplar Springs High School and graduated as the 1970 class Valedictorian. I continued my education at Chipola and graduated with honors from Troy State University with a masters degree in Elementary Education, Owens said in a news release. I also have experience in accounting and being a tax professional. My family and I are very involved in our church, Little Rock Assembly of God here in Bonifay. I serve as adult Sunday school teacher and the church secretary. One of my goals in life has always been to help people who are in need. I strive to attain this goal and stay involved in the community and have been for quite some time, she said. I have been or currently am involved with PTO, the advisory board for American Cancer Society, Garden Club, Hospice volunteer, Gideon Auxiliary, member of the advisory council for the Area Agency on Aging for North Florida, Inc. and a convalescent volunteer. Owens said she followed her passion for education and became a classroom teacher for 36 years. During my tenure, I survived many changes culturally as well as in the state mandates. I have been a supervising teacher for young teachers, grade chairman, spelling bee coordinator, Tropicanna speech coach, National Beta judge and coordinator, Beta sponsor for 22 years, Florida Beta Sponsor for the entire state and the rst ever Florida Sponsor of the Year, Owens said. None of these honors were as satisfying as helping children solve a math problem or teaching them a new lesson for the rst time. There is a great deal of satisfaction in seeing children succeed. Retiring after 36 years of teaching, Owens said she is still passionate about education. I want to see every child succeed in the classroom as well as in life. This passion guided me to use my knowledge and experience from the classroom to make the decision to run for school board member. I strongly feel that with my determination, experience, and time, I could be a great advocate for the children in Holmes County, she said. It is my goal and belief that every child should receive a quality education. Quality education is the building block for a successful life. Every child counts. The children today are the leaders of tomorrow. Losing a child to lack of education can only lead to negative impacts during their lifetime. We need to bring our children up in an environment where they can receive equal, quality and efcient education helping them be the best they can be, Owens said.

In 2010 the Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce was No. 1 in the Florida Panhandle in clearing crimes according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Brown said. In a small department with limited resources, that made me very proud of my staff for their hard work and dedication. Since July of 2011, the Sheriffs Of ce has led approximately 1,246 criminal charges for various offenses. In many of those, residents of Holmes County had been victimized, Brown said. From the period January 2009 through June 30, 2011, the Sheriffs Of ce recorded approximately 227 drug-related arrests. From July 2011 through the current date the Sheriffs Of ce has recorded roughly 206 drug-related charges, Brown said. That a total of around 433 drug-related charges since I took of ce. Since July 2011 the Sheriffs Of ce has led approximately 101 methamphetamine-related charges. Approximately 12 of those methamphetamine charges are for the more serious offense of traf cking in methamphetamine, Brown said. If re-elected, I promise to continue to be vigilant in my duties to make Holmes County safer by continuing to take a very effective community-based approach to combating drugs. In an effort to prosecute property crimes, the Sheriffs Of ce has made many arrests over the past few years, Brown said. Since July 2011 they have led approximately 43 burglary charges. The Sheriffs Ofce also had led approximately 70 theft charges since July 2011. I will continue my open door policy and I welcome your comments and concerns. No appointment necessary, Brown said. Please allow me the opportunity to continue in my 27 years of law enforcement here in Holmes County by re-electing me as your sheriff.

Call 638-0212. Does anyone ever have crazy days like mine was last Saturday? Perhaps its because I am ADD or ADHD or something else (hopefully not Alzheimers). First, the alarm awakens me at 6 a.m. I have to go pick up the pickers. So I get up, and I think I am going to be sick. (I am never sick. It must be the muscle relaxer the doctor just prescribed.) But I go on and pick up the workers. Maybe after I have breakfast, I wont feel sick. Breakfast over, I go out to pack blueberries for the Piggly Wiggly. Glen will deliver them, so I go in the house thinking Ill get back in the bed and go ahead and be sick. On the way in, however, I notice a puddle beside the freezer in the garage. Every thing in there has thawed. I ask my life mate to get the Rainbow down for me to suction out the water. After checking the contents, I decide to make preserves from the figs, which are completely thawed. So I gather jars and sugar, etc., and start that process. (That freezer contains mostly fruit juice or fruit frozen for jam and jelly.) Because the cartons of fat free half and half my friend had scrounged somewhere was thawed, I also decided to make home made blueberry ice cream. I am thinking, Ill sell homemade blueberry ice cream at the blueberry shed for Memorial Day weekend. It will surely be better than the $4 cup I bought at the County Fair. So I bring the cartons of half and half in and put them in the refrigerator until I finish the freezer cleanup and the fig-preserving. By then its time to fix us some lunch. I still think I need to lie down, but the nausea is wearing off or Ive been too busy to notice it. In the meantime, Docs Market needs some blueberries, but Jack and Glen pack those. I need several grocery items that I can pick up as I deliver to Docs. Im still aiming to make ice cream. (Glen has picked up the ice when he delivered berries to the Pig.) When I come home from Docs, the men are surprised when I bring in a crate of sweet corn, which was nice and fresh and too good a deal to pass up. Besides, the beach goers will probably buy it when they stop for blueberries. If not, Ill freeze it in the new freezer I may have to buy. By 3 p.m., my kitchen is a disaster with lunch dishes not put away, groceries not put away, g preserves on the counter, two thirds of a watermelon by the sink and the ice cream churn grinding away in the sink. The front door bell rings, and a young lady is frantically waving a $10 bill, asking if we have some gasoline she can buy. On her way to the dance recital, shes run out of gas. I direct her to the barn where Jack can help her. Hes busy with a customer, but he gives her the gasoline and tells her just to ll the can up and bring it back when she has time. By now, I have decided I am not sick. I have decided blueberry customers will not be eating my blueberry ice cream. While it churns, I put up the groceries, wrap the watermelon and put it in the barn refrigerator and throw the dishes in the dish washer, label the preserves and put them in a box to take to the blueberry shed. I check the garage freezer and it is re-freezing. The door had been left ajar. By 6 p.m., I collapse in my recliner, not a foot from the T.V., and settle down to my Saturday night routine of watching RFD T.V., Renos Old Time music hour is on At 9:15 p.m., I am awakened by the phone ringing. I slept right through The Marty Stewart Show, The Pressleys, Mid West Country, Branson on The Road, The Cumberland Highlanders show, and Molly Bs Polka Show is in full swing, and Jack is ready for bed. That two-hour nap was a healer. I am reminded that there is some advantage to having Attention Decit Disorder or whatever it is that I have. I start so many projects, I do eventually nish some of them.

WERE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD! Allen Barnes 21 Years Experience By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Gov. Rick Scott made a stop in Chipley Monday to meet with Wash ington and Holmes County ofcials and residents to answer questions. We work for you, this is your money were spend ing, Scott said. This is the kind of government accountability I want us to have. Were spending your dollars, and you expect us to spend them well. Scott weighed in on questions about education and the state budget, frivolous lawsuits and tort reform. The Legislature wants to eliminate frivolous law suits, but we have to be able to show how the lawsuits are costing the taxpayer money, the governor said. You have to go to Tallahas see and explain how this af fects the average taxpayer. Once you can show how your legislation can save money, then you can get the support. Scott said that if local ofcials nd state employees or ofcials not being responsive to their needs, they should contact him at the governors ofce. Call me, I will return your calls, he said. I spend most of my day on the phone. He gave as an example, getting a state permit. We have procedures and rules in place, and we have them for a reason. But if a pro cess that should take 30 days takes two years, then something is wrong. The government isnt there to cause problems. Asked about unemployment benets abuse, Scott noted that the long-term unemployment benets are paid with federal funds, and since the states unemployment rate has dropped below 9 percent those longterm benets are likely to be reduced. When I rst took of ce, there were 568,000 people on unemployment in the state, Scott said. That number is down to 340,000. He also noted that there are also 243,000 open jobs listed in the state workforce system. On education, Scott said he prefers to spend tax dol lars on college programs that lead to employment an opinion that got him in trouble with his own daughter last year. Do we need to use your tax dollars to educate more people that cant get jobs in anthropology? Scott asked a group of business leaders last fall. His daugh ter, Jordan Kandah, has an anthropology degree. She called him up and said she was the top Google story on Yahoo News once the AP reported the story. I have an anthropol ogy degree, she said. And I asked, Hows that working out for you? the governor said. She is currently pursuing an MBA degree, Scott added. Scott said he wants col leges and universities to graduate more students from in-demand areas in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) elds. Why spend your tax dollars on areas where graduates cant get work? the governor asked. Forty percent of University of Florida graduates are now graduating in debt. If they cant get a job, then they are in for a tough time. Washington County School District Superintendent Sandra Cook pointed out that 75 percent of the students in her district were not planning on going to college. I agree with the standards, and the academ ic rigor, but we also need a track for students who are not going to college. Cook said the STEM classes may discourage students who are not college-bound and result in them not n ishing school. When asked about STEM programs increasing tuition rates, Scott said I dont believe we ought to be raising tuition. In April, Scott vetoed House Bill 7129, which was written to give universities the power to seek unlim ited tuition increases from their board of trustees and the state Board of Gover nors, especially University of Florida and Florida State University. Scott said universities should examine where they are spending money and balance their budgets rather than raising tuition. Had Scott signed HB 7129, universities that met 11 of 14 performancebased benchmarks would have been allowed to ask the Florida Board of Gov ernors for hikes beyond a current 15 percent cap, ac cording to the Miami Her ald. The criteria included high GPAs of incoming freshmen and a high amount of research activ ity, for example. Only the University of Florida and Florida State University would have qualied. UF and FSU were hop ing to use additional reve nues to enhance academic programs. Scott called for further review of the states uni versities and how they spend money. Besides education, Med icaid funding is one of the biggest expenses the state faces, as well as one of the greatest challenges. Medicaid reform has to be a priority, the gov ernor said. Medicaid costs have tripled, and counties throughout the state are having difculty paying their Medicaid costs. Scott signed HB 5301 in March, which changed the way counties were billed for Medicaid costs. Under the new law, counties could be forced to pay the state an additional $325.5 million in Medicaid costs, accord ing to the Miami Herald. Scott signed the bill over objections from county of cials who had urged him to veto it. County ofcials say it will require local taxpayers to pay for mistakes made by the states electronic billing system, according to the Associated Press. Counties are required to pay a share of the Medicaid costs for their residents. Florida Association of Counties president Doug Smith said the new law represents the very worst in bureaucratic inefciency. All but seven of the states 67 counties sent Scott letters urging him to veto the bill. Our goal is to work with the counties, Scott said.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Wednesday, June 6, 2012 If you enjoy catching dolphin, now is your chance to do so without having to go very far offshore. Saragossa grass has started coming to shore and along with it come dolphins eating the small fish and crabs that live in the grass. The next time you are out in the Gulf and come upon a stretch of this grass, drop a handful on the deck of your boat and watch what comes out. Crabs and shrimp will be jumping around. If you have an aquarium, they provide suitable specimens to keep alive and take home. Some fine dolphins are being caught in this grass and around the buoys. The dolphins follow the weed patches all the way to the beach, where the grass dies as well as the small creatures that live in it. Some people still are shocked when you tell them you caught a dolphin, because they think you mean a porpoise. We have fooled around with the names of animals and fish so much we really dont know what someone is talking about when they mention dolphin When I was growing up, I never heard that word used in reference to a porpoise. They have started calling porpoises, dolphins, and it is so confusing we now have to call dolphins mahi-mahi, the name Hawaiians use. Im not from Hawaii, and I dont call dolphins mahi-mahi. Dolphins are also called dorado, but I guess that name isnt as cute as mahimahi. Its just like the political correctness police who demand that the species we called jewfish forever now must be referred to as goliath grouper. Whether you call them mahi-mahi, dorado or dolphin, this sh is within casting range of small boats. You should not have to go more than two or three miles offshore to catch them.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Wildlife Conservation CommissionPhil Manor remembers the day like it was yesterday. It was late spring in 1993 when he was working by himself on the Apalachicola River Wildlife and Environmental Area tearing out a beaver dam on a wetland. Manor, who at the time had worked four years as a wildlife biologist with the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission, was almost through with his work when a 2.5to-3-footlong cottonmouth struck the index finger on his left hand. Almost immediately his finger and hand began to throb and burn. Manor knew he had to get to a doctor. He cranked up his four-wheeler, drove himself to the Howard Creek compound and in a few minutes was at Gulf Pines Hospital in Port St. Joe. He was given five vials of antivenin to negate the effects of the poisonous bite, but it took weeks for the swelling to go down in his left hand. Every year across the United States an estimated 7,000-8,000 people are bitten by poisonous snakes. About five people die from the bites, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While most people see snakes around water and automatically assume they are cottonmouths, thats generally not the case, Dr. John Himes, a wildlife biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) said. Probably 80 percent to 90 percent of the snakes people see in and around water are harmless water snakes, Himes said. If you pick them up, they may bite because they dont like being handled, but they are not poisonous. Himes said both cottonmouths and the five species of water snakes found in the Panhandle play an important ecological role by feeding on dead or dying fish, amphibians and small invertebrates. All told, there are only six species of poisonous snakes and more than 40 non-poisonous species found in Florida. In addition to the cottonmouth, the list of poisonous snakes includes the canebrake rattlesnake, Eastern diamondback, pygmy rattlesnake, copperhead and coral snake. The canebrake, also called a timber rattler, is the rarest of the group. Specimens are occasionally found in Northwest Florida from the Olustee area to Alachua County. Canebrakes are more common in Georgia and Alabama and Southeastern states. The more common poisonous snakes in Florida include the cottonmouth, Eastern diamondback and pygmy rattlesnakes. The latter two are usually found in more rural settings where theres ample cover. Himes said copperheads are usually found north of Highway 20 in the Panhandle and commonly in low-lying areas along creeks and rivers. He said they are expertly camouflaged. Coral snakes are the only species of the group whose venom affects the central nervous system. They have small fangs, in comparison with the other poisonous snakes, and coral snake bites are fairly rare. Coral snakes are inoffensive and almost secretive, Himes said. You find them around yard litter or decaying leaves and such, but if a person wears gloves to do their yard work, they have nothing to fear from this snake. Although many people are afraid of all snakes, Himes said its important to remember poisonous and nonpoisonous species play an important role in the environment by preying on rats, mice, small reptiles and amphibians, rabbits and even each other in some cases. Himes said people, particularly those new to Florida and who fear snakes, should consider obtaining a book or going online to look up the reptiles and amphibians of Florida.WATCH OUT! Be on the lookout for poisonous and non-poisonous snakes Special to Florida Freedom NewspapersJohn David Patton Park in Carrabelle is the recipient of a $5,000 Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Gopher Tortoise Habitat Management Grant. Patton Park is a 55-acre parcel consisting of pine atwoods and planted slash pine with scattered wetlands. It was acquired by the city in 2004 with Florida Forever funds and is managed as a nature park with a picnic pavilion, trails, native plant gardens and restrooms. The habitat management project to optimize the area for resident gopher tortoises began with an onsite meeting of FWC biologists and Division of Forestry (DOF) prescribed burn specialists, Carrabelle City Administrator Courtney Millender and Sea Oats Garden Club President Lesley Cox to prepare a scope of work plan for fall 2011 and spring 2012. Health concerns for nearby residents from the 2007 prescribed burn led to a decision to mow instead of burn. To ensure the safety of the gopher tortoises, the garden club surveyed and agged six burrows and the city work crew handcleared around the entrances. Approximately, 25 acres of uplands were mowed by DOF using a bush-hog in October 2011. In May 2012, Odie Lazlo of Crowder Excavating rehabilitated the re line separating the pine trees from the ti ti swamps. Since mowing may be substituted for burning, these management tools are critical in the success of reducing fuel load and encouraging vegetative species that the gopher tortoises need to thrive. Gopher tortoises are plant-eating scavengers. Their diets contains more than 300 species of plants. They also eat mushrooms and fruits, including blackberries and paw paws. They usually get water from the food they eat, but occasionally drink standing water in times of extreme drought. The gopher tortoises can be found throughout Florida and southern areas of Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama and the tip of eastern Louisiana. They dig burrows up to 50 feet long, tunneling three feet below the surface of the soil in dry habitats. These tunnels provide shelter and protection from weather and re for hundreds of other species. The gopher tortoise grows on average to be slightly less than one foot long and weighs about 29 pounds. Since July 7, 1987, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has listed the gopher tortoise as threatened. Its status is listed as under review in Florida. The University of Florida Conservation Clinic Center for Governmental Responsibility at Levin College of Law described the main threats to the tortoise population as habitat loss through human development, use as a pet or for meat, relocation causing population disruption and disease caused by relocation. The Sea Oats Garden Club will continue to monitor the gopher tortoise burrows and work to rehabilitate the native plants gardens. If you are interested in helping, contact Lesley Cox at 697-5555.

SENIORS from page A1By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Bonifay Kiwanis Club welcomed the robotics class from Bethlehem High School to their meeting on May 30 to have then speak about their resent experience as second place winner and winner of the Judges Choice Award for this years STEM TECH Olympiad 2012 battlebot competition. Seven students from the robotic class made their way to Miami during the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 25 to compete against other robots from high schools and colleges from across the nation. Armed with only their wits and a 120 pound robot named Rhinoceros Prime Engaged, they eagerly traveled the 600 miles to STEM TECH Olympiad 2012 which was hosting the National BOTSIQ nals, said the students Math and robotics teacher, Gary Driver. The event was hosted by USATL, the United States Alliance for Technology Literacy. Driver said there was more being done at the fourday event. There were numerous competitions being conducted, including Lego League, VEXing Challenge, Assistive Device Design, College Design, Computer Programming, and Video Game Programming in addition to the college and high school BattleBots competing in the BOTSIQ open class and educational class. He said that by Sunday afternoon, Rhinoceros Prime Engaged was the only robot that had not lost a match in the double elimination bracket system of the high school division, which quickly caught and kept the eyes of the judges. Each ght they had knocked out their opponents with the longest match lasting about two minutes of the three minute round, however they had to beat the robot coming back from the losers bracket to be named champ, said Driver. The Miami high school bot Diesel had lost in the rst round but managed to work its way through the losers bracket and stood in the way of a clean sweep. The rst match went the full three minutes and the judges decision went to Diesel. Driver explained that since that was Rhinos rst loss, a second three-minute round was scheduled and in the second ght against Diesel neither bot was able to knock out the other bot. Once again it went to a judges decision, said Driver. This time it was a split decision but the victory went to Diesel. Rhinoceros Prime Engaged had come up a little short but enjoyed the second place standing when during the awards ceremony they were named the Judges Choice Award winner for the best overall robot at the competition. Driver said that Judges Choice Award was more then meets the eye. This is the most coveted award and is based on design, durability, aggression, team spirit, and robot ability, said Driver. There were over 200 robots competing in the four weight classes, said Driver, and after nishing the high school class contest without much damage, the team agreed to accept a challenge from the college division winners, The University of Miami. Also during this meeting scholarships were presented to students from across Holmes County.Kiwanis welcomes Battlebot Champs Don Hersman of the Bonifay Kiwanis Club presents the Juli McFatter/ Bonifay Kiwanis Club Scholarship of $1,000 to Heather Burlew.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Wednesday, June 6, 2012 If you enjoy catching dolphin, now is your chance to do so without having to go very far offshore. Saragossa grass has started coming to shore and along with it come dolphins eating the small fish and crabs that live in the grass. The next time you are out in the Gulf and come upon a stretch of this grass, drop a handful on the deck of your boat and watch what comes out. Crabs and shrimp will be jumping around. If you have an aquarium, they provide suitable specimens to keep alive and take home. Some fine dolphins are being caught in this grass and around the buoys. The dolphins follow the weed patches all the way to the beach, where the grass dies as well as the small creatures that live in it. Some people still are shocked when you tell them you caught a dolphin, because they think you mean a porpoise. We have fooled around with the names of animals and fish so much we really dont know what someone is talking about when they mention dolphin When I was growing up, I never heard that word used in reference to a porpoise. They have started calling porpoises, dolphins, and it is so confusing we now have to call dolphins mahi-mahi, the name Hawaiians use. Im not from Hawaii, and I dont call dolphins mahi-mahi. Dolphins are also called dorado, but I guess that name isnt as cute as mahimahi. Its just like the political correctness police who demand that the species we called jewfish forever now must be referred to as goliath grouper. Whether you call them mahi-mahi, dorado or dolphin, this sh is within casting range of small boats. You should not have to go more than two or three miles offshore to catch them.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Wildlife Conservation CommissionPhil Manor remembers the day like it was yesterday. It was late spring in 1993 when he was working by himself on the Apalachicola River Wildlife and Environmental Area tearing out a beaver dam on a wetland. Manor, who at the time had worked four years as a wildlife biologist with the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission, was almost through with his work when a 2.5to-3-footlong cottonmouth struck the index finger on his left hand. Almost immediately his finger and hand began to throb and burn. Manor knew he had to get to a doctor. He cranked up his four-wheeler, drove himself to the Howard Creek compound and in a few minutes was at Gulf Pines Hospital in Port St. Joe. He was given five vials of antivenin to negate the effects of the poisonous bite, but it took weeks for the swelling to go down in his left hand. Every year across the United States an estimated 7,000-8,000 people are bitten by poisonous snakes. About five people die from the bites, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While most people see snakes around water and automatically assume they are cottonmouths, thats generally not the case, Dr. John Himes, a wildlife biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) said. Probably 80 percent to 90 percent of the snakes people see in and around water are harmless water snakes, Himes said.

Canebrakes are more common in Georgia and Alabama and Southeastern states. The more common poisonous snakes in Florida include the cottonmouth, Eastern diamondback and pygmy rattlesnakes. The latter two are usually found in more rural settings where theres ample cover. Himes said copperheads are usually found north of Highway 20 in the Panhandle and commonly in low-lying areas along creeks and rivers. He said they are expertly camouflaged. Coral snakes are the only species of the group whose venom affects the central nervous system. They have small fangs, in comparison with the other poisonous snakes, and coral snake bites are fairly rare. Coral snakes are inoffensive and almost secretive, Himes said. You find them around yard litter or decaying leaves and such, but if a person wears gloves to do their yard work, they have nothing to fear from this snake.

Hudson presented a program titled Autism, Its Getting Closer To Home in which he educated the members of the prevalence of Autism in the United States. Autism affects one in every 110 children in the U.S., said Hudson. He also indicated that this number is steadily increasing as time passes. In addition, Hudson provided information about the warning signs of Autism such as repetitive motions, delayed speech patterns, restricted interest in play items, hyper-acute senses, and lack of desire for social interaction. Autism is a developmental disorder, said Hudson. It is not indicative of a persons cognitive ability; rather, it affects the way a person interacts socially. An individual with Autism views social setting through a different set of eyes than you or I. Hudson developed his passion for spreading Autism awareness through his experience of teaching children with Autism during the last 10 years at Ponce de Leon High School. His passion was ampli ed when his own son, Ashton, was diagnosed with Aspergers Disorder, a high functioning form of Autism. Hudson has devoted much time and energy to the study of the disorders on the Autism Spectrum and is nearing completion of his second Masters Degree majoring in Psychology focused on Applied Behavior Analysis. Hudson says he enjoys volunteering his services of speaking to church and civic groups in an effort to better educate individuals on the subject of Autism Spectrum Disorders. If there is an organization or group that would bene t from this presentation, please contact Hudson at 373-9841 or 548-9000.SPECIAL TO EXTRAKyle Hudson was the recent speaker at the Bonifay Kiwanis Club.Kiwanis discuss raising autism awareness AMERICAN VETERAN POST 7 HONORS VETERANSCHIPLEY On Memorial Day, the American Veteran Post 7 in Chipley, held a cookout sponsored by the Sons of Veterans.

A limited number of each title is available in the front of ce at the high school for check-out. All titles are very popular, and easily attainable from bookstores, libraries, and for e-reader. Aside from just reading the assigned novel, students must complete a written assignment. Assignments will be handed out in English classes before exams. Extra copies will be available in the front of ce over the summer. Freshmen must read The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd or Animal Farm by George Orwell. Sophomores must read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Juniors must read The Old Man and the Sea by Earnest Hemingway and the seniors must read Night by Elie Wiesel.Summer reading list announced for Vernon High School If you are around horses or a stable lately, you may notice an increase in ies, such as stable ies, house ies, horn ies and horse ies. Dr. Leslie Easterwood, clinical assistant professor for the large animal clinical sciences department at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, said ies are worse in the summertime, and this year they are particularly bad. Last year it was dry and hot so it didnt seem quite as bad, but this year weve had rain and the temperatures havent been as high, so there seems to be an increase, Easterwood said. Flies can be a nuisance to a horse because the horse tries to swat and get away from them. Other than annoying the horse, the biting ies can cause physical irritations. Often, the ies congregate around the horses face trying drink the uid at the corner of the horses eyes. Because ies carry bacteria on their feet, they deposit bacteria, larvae and parasites on the horses face and around the eyes when they are looking for moisture. The biggest thing is the transfer [of bacteria], and all ies can be bothersome, Easterwood said. Flies often deposit habronema larvae on open wounds or horses eyes. As the larvae migrate through the tissue, they cause open sores, and that is very common in horses this time of year, Easterwood said. Horse ies are even worse than normal house and stable ies. Easterwood said these ies are at least 10 times the size of a house y, have big mouths and transfer more diseases than a house or stable y. They can transfer diseases, such as equine infectious anemia, a very fatal disease that we dont have a cure for, she said. Easterwood said these irritations, sores, diseases and transfer of bacteria are the main reason it is important to have proper y control. Good y control extends to the face, not just spraying the body, but using stuff safe to use by their eyes, she said. Easterwood recommended using sprays and ointments to repel ies. Ointment can be applied to a cloth and used to wipe the horses eyes. The repellent can be bought over the counter or through a veterinarian. Different environmental factors determine which product should be used for individual needs. If there is a bad y problem, you would be better off to use a product every day that you can reapply frequently to keep the population down. As opposed to if you have a very good environmental program, you can apply the longer lasting product, Easterwood said. She added that most people reapply y products daily. She warned, however, that many products claim the repellent lasts longer than others. We have found that very few [products] last as long as they say they will, Easterwood said. She explained that all y repellent works on the various types of ies. It repels all of [the ies] and mosquitoes, Easterwood said. She also suggested covering the horse with y sheets for their bodies and y masks for their faces. Other options include an automatic y spray system in barns, moving manure and trash piles away from the horses or drying out the manure pile.Protect horses from increasing y problem

It is quite obvious that sanity is not a prerequisite of religion. If it were, most religions would go out of business within the 30-day money back guarantee period. Every religion has some sort of litmus test for faith. It is in this area of religion that smacks so loudly of insanity. Superstition, regardless of the basis, is one great common denominator of all religion. It is not that I mind superstition. I just do not want it associated with my religion. I read in the newspaper headlines just this week a pastor was killed by a rattlesnake bite. I had almost forgotten this sort of thing went on in our sophisticated, enlightened world. As a young preacher, I was visiting a congregation in Kentucky as the guest speaker for that Sunday. Never mind the town or the church, that is beside the point. I got to the church a little early and was escorted around the church looking at the facilities. Then they took me into the sanctuary where I could look at the pulpit and the sanctuary where I would be preaching. Being the observant person that I am, I noticed a basket next to the pulpit. I had never seen such a basket before him all my life. I really did not know too much about the church, and now I cannot remember exactly why I was invited to preach there. Be that as it may, I was greatly curious about the basket next to the pulpit. I did not know if it was a wastebasket or if perhaps it was the offering basket and the congregation would ll it up before the service was over. So, I asked my host what the basket was next to the pulpit. Thats where we keep the rattlesnake, he said rather passively. Say what! That basket there is where we keep the rattlesnake that we use in our service. I can take a joke and give it back with the best of them. I responded with a hearty laugh. Ha, ha, ha, I said good-naturedly. Really, what is that basket for? I could see my host was not the least bit amused with my persistent inquiry. He said rather sternly, thats where we keep our rattlesnake for our church service. He then stared at me for a few moments and then said, I dont think well need it in our service today. You dont look like you have enough faith. Inside me, I sighed a deep sigh of relief. There is a time when I want to bolster my faith, but in the circumstance before me, I did not want enough faith to handle some rattlesnake. One of the tenants of my religion is to run as fast as I can away from any and all rattlesnakes. It is one part of my religion I take rather seriously. My host tried explaining to me what was going on. He pointed to a passage in Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. My rst reaction was to think he was pulling the wool over my eyes, so to speak, and I almost laughed out loud. I caught myself in time when I realized this man was serious. According to him, he could have enough faith in God to pick up the poisonous rattlesnake and if it bit him, it would not hurt him at all. According to their religion, when they are truly in the Spirit, they have the power to pick up a poisonous rattlesnake, and if it bites you, it will not hurt you. They keep the basket containing a rattlesnake in the front of the church for when such an occasion arises. I was hoping it would not arise during my time in the pulpit. All during my sermon, I could not help casting a wistful eye in the general direction of the basket next to the pulpit. At one point, I thought I did see the basket move. I yelled at this point, which excited the congregation thinking I had gotten in the spirit, and then everybody cast a wistful eye in the direction of the basket. I respect other peoples views on everything, I suppose. However, there are some things I have dif culty wrapping my tired brain around. This has to be one of them. How you can pull the bit about the rattlesnake out of that verse of scripture and ignore the rest of it is really beyond me. Religion will make you do many silly things that have no sanity behind it. Many people just go through the motions not really knowing why they are doing what they are doing. At least the snake handlers have a little bit of excitement in their services. Nothing I want to experience, but then who am I to criticize? I rest my faith upon the Scripture. Particularly, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith keeps me away from poisonous rattlesnakes. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Every the primordial experience of the languages original speakers. Thus every language is a world view, but also the conditions of making experience intelligible. As Heidegger put it, Language is the house of being. The primorthe Greek word logos which is often translated as word, although the concept of logos is much richer than the English word. Logos is the principle of intelligibility underlying things, but also the bridge between the spiritual realm and the physical realm. Words are concrete, audible and visible expressions of abstract concepts. A word is a materialized idea and thus the concept of Logos or Word was a natural idea to express and explain the second person of the trinity, i.e. Jesus. Understanding this gives one a sense of the sublime power of language to both create and to make the world intelligible.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser1364 N.
