What has been structured here is a straw poll, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. This is to get the thoughts and ideals of the residents. Goodman said the vote would be a way of asking residents if they agree or disagree that businesses that already hold licenses to sell alcohol should extend their hours to include Sunday. Right now sales are only allowed Monday through Saturday with restrictions on times, Goodman said. This is just allowing these businesses who already sell alcohol to extend their alcohol sales to include Sunday. He said the expansion wouldnt change what stores could sell or who can sell, just the days they are allowed to sell. I have my own thoughts and opinions on the matter, Commissioner Kenneth Williams said. Im not approving because I agree with it; Im approving to allow the people of this county to say what they want for their county. Goodman said Florida statutes allow for counties to decide if their alcohol sales should extend to include Sundays and that in 1977, the Holmes County BOCC decided such sales would be prohibited. This is in no way us condoning alcohol sales on Sunday, Chairman Monty Merchant said. Its a way of nding out what the residents of Holmes County want, think and feel about the matter. The vote passed 3 to 2, with commissioners Jim King and Phillip Music voting no. Separately, the board approved of setting the tentative millage rate at 9.9353 with a vote of 3 to 2, with Williams and Commissioner Ron Monk voting no. We should set it higher and be able to make the cuts where need be, Merchant said. A budget hearing is set for 4 p.m. Sept. 10. The board also approved to move forward with the abandonment of Kelly Lane Road. Landowner Fred Webb confirmed that Kelly lane Road is a dead-end road that leads to the center of his property and asked that it be closed for safety reasons. The board approved Holmes County Emergency Management Services request to enter into Houston-Galveston Area Council Interlocal Contract for Cooperative Purchasing to purchase a new ambulance with a grant through a state bid. Also approved were EMS new non-emergency hires. The board approved Holmes County Extension Director Shep Eubanks request to travel to Orlando for a three-day professional improvements convention for $570. The board also approved to allow Eubanks to travel to Gainesville as the University of Florida screens four potential applicants for the position as the new Holmes County extension director. He said the university would send the best candidate back to the board for approval. The board also approved of hiring Joseph Ratcliff as the new mechanic for District 4 and approved of State Housing Initiative Partnerships request to increase the maximum money used in the Local Housing Assistance Plan from $5,000 to $6,000. There wasnt a good quality product for the amount of money that was offered, and every one of the applications were having to come back to the board for approval because they were so many dollars over the allotted amount, Goodman said.

Weldon was elected to the House in 1994 and served seven terms in Washington before announcing he would not seek an eighth term in 2008. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army. STATE ATTORNEY The state attorney race between Republicans Jim Appleman and incumbent Glenn Hess will be a uni versal primary. If all candidates for an ofce have the same party afliation and the winner will have no opposition in the General Election, then all qualied voters, regard less of party afliation, may vote in the Primary Elec tion for that ofce. These contests are called Uni versal Primary Contests, according to Santa Rosa Countys website, santa rosa..gov. The outcome of the primary will determine the winner of the election, although it is possible there could be run-off elections required. Republican State Attor ney Glenn Hess resigned his job as a circuit judge to run for state attorney for the 14th Judicial Circuit in 2008, he is seeking a second term.

Call 638-0212. When Perrys Prattle column began in April 2003, the writers wildest imagination would not allow him to believe the variety of topics he covered in the next 10 years. Hester has collected cookbooks throughout our almost 60 years of our marriage. A wild guess would list the number at more than 100. Her collection includes everything from Southern Living to various other national magazines. She has supported and purchased books on cooking from many churches, civic and festival organizations, including the one titled The Possum Cookbook from Wausaus Fun Day. It was in January 2007, while attending a twoday bluegrass festival in Andalusia, Ala., that I bought my rst cookbook. It was in a Goodwill Store, and the fact that it was sponsored by Peoples First Community Bank of Panama City made the $2 purchase easy for me. The rst page contained a letter from the chairman of the board, Joe Chapman, with a personal handwritten note: Thank you for your business! As residents of Panama City during the early years of our marriage, we watched Joe grow into manhood, excel in many facets of life, nish high school, enter law school and become an attorney. Back in his hometown, he engaged in many businesses. His mother, Mrs. Gladys Chapman, a school teacher before entering the political arena, served many years as supervisor of elections in Bay County. Hester and I knew many of the contributors names, from our days in Panama City. Three years later, I saw a cookbook advertised by Zion Primitive Baptist Church in Brunswick, Ga., as a fundraiser for building a dining hall to the meeting house. I recognized recipes from across the southland of people I had come to know in attending church meetings. The heading for each type of food included a scripture quote. Under Appetizers and Beverage, the Bible reference was If any man thirsts, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water (John 7:37-38). The Vegetables and Side Dishes began with this quotation: The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live for ever (Psalm 22:26). Desserts give us this quotation: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23). The cook book is lled with quotes from philosophers and politicians. I dont know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody, from Bill Cosby. Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought, by John F. Kennedy. From Thomas Jefferson: Im a great believer in luck, and I nd the harder I work, the more I have of it. This light-hearted recipe in the churchsponsored cook book is for Elephant Stew one med. elephant, salt and pepper, one small onion and two rabbits (optional). Note the comical preparation instructions. Cut elephant into bite size pieces. This will take about 16 days. Cover with rich brown gravy and simmer over open ame, about two and a half weeks. This should feed about 3,002 people, but if more are expected, add the 2 rabbits. However, add only if needed, as most people dont like hare in their stew. The Minnie Pearl Music City Cook Book was purchased in a thrift store. Aside from the recipes for down home cooking, Minnies home spun tales and characters from Grinders Switch, including her boyfriend Hessie and Uncle Nabob along with brother are included in her stories. The Aunt Bees Mayberry Cookbook in our home was given to Hester as a birthday present from Tim, Debbie, Laura, Julie and Perry II on Nov. 12, 2010. I dont think either of us has gotten serious with trying any of the delectable dishes submitted by real people who were invited to participate. The book is lled excerpts from Andy Grif th shows of the past and will bring to mind many characters that could will be lost to time now that Barney, George (Goober) Lindsey, Aunt Bee and Andy have passed from the scene of time. Our special, The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Cookbook, was purchased recently, also in a bargain store. It came to us just after we had seen the rerun of Forrest Gump on television, which made it more special. Aside from the all-shrimp recipes, the booklet is lled with the philosophical sayings of Forrest that will be remembered from the movie. Heres some: They asked me if I was runnin for womens rights women are always right. Well, destiny is when youre born to do something, but you dont know what it is. Bubba was my best friend, and you dont nd that very often. Remember what I told you? Dont let anybody tell you theyre better than you. And nally, I happen to believe we make our own destiny. We have to do the best with what God gave us. The last cookbook for review today has been in our household since the days when the Rev. Tommy Brill was pastor of Blue Lake Baptist Church. This book was prepared by the WMU of that congregation and brought back many memories of those who have since died that submitted favorite recipes. A quick glance will show Pop-Up Bread by Ruby Zumstein, Angel Biscuits by Inez Morris, Fresh Apple Cake by Louise Tharp, Green Bean Salad by Civie Speights, Rocky Road Candy by Margaret Kent and Molasses Cookies by Fannie McGuire. With all the cookbook reading, I had to resist referring to myself as a gourmet cook after reading the dictionary de nition as a person who knows and appreciates ne food and drink, an epicure. I still know full well that my menu is limited to seafood gumbo and chip steak and gravy, served open-face style, along with potatoes sticks from a can. See you all next week. Cookbook collection spans almost 60 years Every time I pass the intersection of Highway 90 and 79, I keep thinking of the words of the song done by Five Men Electrical Band in the 1980s: Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Dont you know its enough to be blowin my mind. Do this, do that, cant you read the sign? This sort of protest song mentions several signs: Long-haired freaky people need not apply. Anybody trespassing will be shot on sight. You got to have shirt and tie to get a seat, else you cant even watch. No, you cant eat. He nally nds one sign that says, Welcome to kneel down and pray. But when they passed the plate, I dont have a penny to pay, the song says. This song, which I dont believe ever made to the top of any of the charts, is not talking about the political signs, which are crowding the landscape. However, the number and size of them seems to be somewhat overboard. They bring up questions to my mind. First, how effective are they? Do voters assume that the one who has the most signs or the largest, most prominent signs have the most support? Then, who decides where they can be put? I understand that in our city, Bonifay, a candidate can pay a fee and place them on the city right-ofway. Who polices that? If they are in a homeowners yard, I assume they are supporting that candidate. But then you see some yards just decorated with a number of candidates signs, some for the same of ce. If I allow one in my yard for someone I support, does that give others the right to put one there too? If not, is it legal for me to remove unwanted ones? Who is responsible for cutting the grass around them wherever they are? Or straighten them up when the wind blows them over? What about those on highway rights of way? Telephone or light poles? I suppose the candidates know the answers to these questions, but I dont know that they or their supporters abide by the rules. I havent traveled the rural areas of our county much this election year, so I cant comment on the sign situation. Nor have I traveled out of Holmes, Washington and Bay counties. But Washington County seems to have as plentiful a supply of them as we do. One innovative contender there has individual hand painted signs that I have noticed. The primary voting will be Aug. 14, and we have the mail-out from our ef cient supervisor of elections, Debbie Morris. Some of the important of ces will be decided then, while others will wait until the general election on Nov. 6 to be decided. I urge you to read what the candidates have to say and decide who appears to have the best handle on the responsibilities of the of ce. Attend a rally and listen to the candidates, and meet and talk with them. Then decide if they have the quali cations to carry out those responsibilities. That brings up another question: Who is responsible for removing the signs and how long after the election do they have to do it? Is there a penalty for not doing so? Who enforces that? Personally, I dont think I have ever been in uenced to vote for someone based on their political sign. However, it is a First Amendment right to free speech, and I would not discourage candidates from posting them. They certainly give those in that kind of business a boost and generates interest in who is running. I am proud that we in the small counties put the larger counties to shame when it comes to our voter turn-out percentages. That makes our votes in the statewide elections a signi cant factor. Early voting and absentee voting are going on right now. If you put it off until Aug. 14, you can still vote. But dont miss out on the opportunity to exercise your right as a citizen. So I got me a pen and paper, and I made up my own little sign. It said, Thank you Lord for thinking bout me. Im alive and doin ne. Election time: Sign, sign, everywhere a sign HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Peoples First Floridas Community Bank: From our family to yours Long-haired freaky people need not apply.

Helms elected Delta Kappa Gamma international president Special to The Times-Advertiser With more than 2,000 in attendance at the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Convention in New York City on July 24-28, Dr. Beverly Helms of Bonifay was elected as the societys international president. Delta Kappa Gamma is an honorary organization for key women educators with more than 90,000 members in 18 countries and 80 states. Expansion into Japan will occur when Helms installs the rst chapter of 53 women educators in October. The purpose of the group is to promote the personal and profes sional growth of women educators and excellence in education. The women educators honor women who have given or who show poten tial for distinctive service in any eld of education. It advances the professional interest and position of women in education; initiates, supports and endors es desirable legislation in the interests of education and of women educators; endows scholarships to members to pursue higher degrees; and grants fel lowships to nonmember women educators. In her acceptance speech, Helms requested the group not let what they know limit their imagina tion of the organizations potential. She challenged members to stay focused at the chapter level, set signicant goals, make the most of marketing and objectively identify obstacles to growth. Her desire is that the group will intentionally connect or recon nect with all members, engage them in the mission of the organization and also continue to attract younger members. Because communication is of primary importance to Helms, she plans to commu nicate in print and electronically with members.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section A lot of people who watch shing shows think y shing is a rich mans sport. They see y shermen going to exotic spots around the world and think they never will be able to do that. You dont have to go to Alaska to y sh. As a matter of fact we have some pretty good freshwater y shing right here on the fresh water ponds on the beach. There are 100 ways to catch sh from shocking them up to the surface to using a y rod to entice them to bite. Most people with the attitude y shing is beyond their economic position in the world had better think again. The reason a lot of shermen dont y sh is because they never had someone to show them how to do it. If you are willing to attend a few meetings this can all change and you can be shing for everything from blue gills to tarpon in a short time. With the advent of kayaks, it is very easy to slip into most of the ponds just opposite the Gulf. These ponds are not private and dont let anyone tell you they are. All you have to have is permission from a land owner on the pond that will allow you to cross his property and you are in business. I was very fortunate to have a father who y shed and taught me a little about it when I was young. I also had a few friends who y shed, and they also were a great help. If you think you would like to learn the art of y casting, there is a club forming locally that will allow you to be introduced to those who are looking for other people to share in the sport of y shing. This new club is being formed here in Panama City Beach for y shermen experienced and the not so experienced. The meetings will be at 6:30 p.m. every other Tuesday on the second oor of the Shore House Furniture store, 14301 Panama City Beach Parkway. The next meeting is Aug. 7. Future meetings will include Fly tying demonstrations by club founder Barry Kent and equipment suggestions by James Smith, shing manager for Orvis. He will share hints and types of sh caught with Flies in both the bay and local saltwater. For more information, call Barry Kent at 352-460-4107 or email bayffc@gmail.com. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By FRANK SARGEANT franksargeant@charter.net Some people love the new FWC regulation allowing a doubling of the daily red sh harvest from one to two per person in the northern zones; others hate it. But it is the rule for all state waters except the South Zone, and for those who love to eat red sh and think there are plenty of them this fall should provide some prime sh fries. Classic wisdom is that king mackerel appear along Floridas West Coast when water temps reach 68, and red sh, AKA red drum, appear when they rise to 86. That means August is kickoff time for prime red shing that will extend through October, especially for the giant bulls (which are actually females, by the way) which can weigh 30 pounds and up. There are fair numbers of redsh in Panhandle waters year around these days, but late summer through fall is prime time. Big spawners, some more than 50 pounds and approaching 4 feet long, travel into the sounds and bays from their usual offshore locations. The sh drop their eggs around the larger passes, typically around the new and full moon major tides. Meantime, they prowl nearshore reefs, riprap cuts and the edges of the ats to feed, adding a whole new element to inshore shing. Tailing sh on the ats are not as abundant in August as they will be my mid-September and on into early November, but there are enough around to make the pursuit worthwhile, especially early and late on days with dawn or dusk low tides. Many of the reds found on most ats at this time of year are likely to be somewhere near the 18 to 27 inch legal slot, though there are plenty of 30-inch sh that will join the migrating schools and leave the shallows as adults when fall turns to winter. Reds often are scattered in summer, but as fall approaches they gather up in big schools, and occasionally anglers are treated to the sight of a red wave crossing the ats, easing along the beach or moving through the larger passes as hundreds of sh come to the surface and literally turn the water red as the sun glints off their rosecolored backs. Some of these jumbos are caught by anglers towing large spoons, diving plugs or big live baits often shermen after kings or grouper connect with the lunker reds. They can also be caught by casting a big topwater plug or any live bait sh into a visible school; hits are instant. All of these sh far exceed the maximum legal size and must be released, but they put on a wonderful battle. (Use debarbed hooks if you target oversized reds, so that they can be released without injury remember these are the mommas and poppas that create the smaller ones we chase on the ats the rest of the year.) Jumbo reds are all catch-andrelease no harvest is permitted. But if you want to tangle with some of these giants, one likely tactic is to set up on any Panhandle pier or the rocks of any Panhandle jetty and soak a slab of fresh-cut mullet or pin sh, or even better free-line live pin sh, grunts or nger mullet. This is heavy tackle actionyoull need at least 25 pound test line and a reel that holds a couple hundred yards of it to prevent a giant red from running off with your gear, but its a unique opportunity for really big sh from shore. On the ats On the ats, reds can be considerably more challenging. There is a lot of pressure on shallow-water sh these days, and a noisy or careless approach often sends an entire school eeing before you can catch even one. Spotting the sh is the rst challenge. Often, you will see only the tip of a tail or dorsal n or the jump of eeing nger mullet to let you know they are close. Or, you might see a moving vee wake as a school pushes across a shoal. (They look a lot like the vee that mullet schools make, but are usually somewhat larger.) In calm, clear water, you sometimes can see individual sh as they cross a white patch of sand, but it requires Polarized glasses and a good eye. The best strategy is to get ahead of a moving school and then cast your bait or lure well in front of the lead sh. Let them swim up to it and hopefully you get a bite. Casting into the middle of a school these days usually sends the entire bunch racing for deeper water. Wade shing for tailers on the last of the low tides around new and full moons can also be great at this time of year. When the water gets to around 12 inches deep over the grass, sh start to tail in many areas. Most wade shers use arti cials, either soft jerkbaits, DOA shrimp, swim baits or topwaters. The trick is to make a delicate presentation and bring the lure just near enough to the sh for it to spot the movement. Hard-pressured reds may refuse most arti cials, but a tactic that often fools them is to use a scented lure like a Gulp!Alive! crab, cast it close and uptide of the sh and simply let it sit; they soon follow the scent trail to the bait. Chunks of fresh mullet or lady sh work just as well. Its also possible to catch plenty of reds with the now-classic tactic of anchoring in sloughs or large holes and chumming with crippled sardines. The reds nd the sardines and follow them to the source your boat where you offer them one with a hook in it. Expert guides are skilled in putting just enough bait in the water to keep the reds actively feeding, but not enough so that they get full and move on. With this tactic, its sometimes possible to set in one spot and catch a dozen or more reds, luring the school back each time it ushes away by tossing out more sardines. Red sh regs The bag limit on red sh in the Panhandle is now two per person per day, and theres no closed season. The slot limit is 18 to 27 inches; larger or smaller sh must be released immediately. Excellent shing usually continues until the rst cold front in November sends most of the sh to deeper water but if you know where the holes are inshore or sh the warm water out ow of powerplants you can nd plenty of eating size reds all winter. Reds on the table Red sh llets are moist and tender, good in a variety of recipes. However, the species does have a pronounced red line down each side, and unless that line is removed, it adds a somewhat shy taste to the meat, which some people dont like. One of the best recipes for reds is baked, in the shell, which means the gutted carcass, head on, is wrapped in foil and placed on the grill or in a 350-degree oven. Stuf ng the cavity with sliced oranges or lemons adds a nice extra tang. Cook until a fork passes easily through the thickest part of the shoulders. When the sh is cooked, slide a knife just under the skin and run it down the backbone, then peel away the skin. This reveals the llet and the red line. Slip a spatula under the red line and lift it away, and the sh is ready for the table. Serving-size portions lift easily off the bones. Reds are also good just plain fried; llet, skin, cut out the red line and section the llets into eating-size pieces. Dip in cornmeal or crushed corn akes, then drop into hot vegetable oil or peanut oil. Cook until the coating turns light brown, then drain on layers of paper napkins and serve. Last but not least is blackened red sh, a dish made up to create a tasty dish from less palatable sh. But theres no question that its darned good. Basically the routine is to dip the llets in Cajun seasonings available at any grocery store these days and then fry it in a very hot cast iron skillet with butter. The mix of seasoning dust and butter quickly forms a blackened crust on the outside, while the esh inside remains moist and tender. (Leave it a minute too long and all you have is burnt sh, but done right, this is a great dish.) TIPS FOR SPOOKY REDS More elevation means you can see ats reds farther away, which is why poling platforms and casting towers are found on many ats rigs. However, the higher you are, the father away a red sh can see you. Its good to use the tower to locate the sh, but sometimes youll have to step down and crouch on the deck while casting if you want to get them to eat. If you sh from a boat, use the pushpole and the PowerPole or Talon rather than the trolling motor and anchor when ever possible. With light winds, simply drifting or letting the tide carry you can be the best possible approach but be ready to stop the boat immediately when you see sh ahead. Otherwise, youll drift too close and spook them. When possible, let the sh come to you; determine their direction of travel, get the boat well ahead of them and sit in silence while they feed into casting range. When sh chase your lure close, get smallcrouch down so that he cant see you up there manipulating that rod. While a silent approach in a ats boat is good, a silent approach while wading is much better; theres a lot less for the sh to see, and that means you can get closer most of the time. DOUBLE UP New regulations increase redfish daily limit to two Contributed photos Giant redfish like this one, caught on the northeast side of Florida by Captain Don Dingman and helpers, are also found in Panhandle waters in late summer and fall. Like all reds longer than 27 inches, they must be released immediately per state regulations. Below, shallow flats can be ideal locations to spot tailing redfish, particularly on the low tides created by new and full moon periods.

SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com A Section This is Part 2 of a threepart series on Ebro Greyhound Park. By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | @pcnhpat pmccann@pcnh.com EBRO It isnt meant as a slight to either party when saying that Joe Watson would have t nicely with the cast of The Andy Grif th Show. Watsons unassuming demeanor and down-home work ethic are virtues embodied in the long-running staple of American television. He doesnt make a grand entrance or command a room. More than likely, he could be the one over in the corner getting the job done. Now 49, the Caryville resident is in his rst year as sole owner of a greyhound racing kennel, AJN, which occupies kennel No. 5 in the compound in the northwest corner of the property at Ebro Greyhound Park. The J and the N represent Joe and wife, Nita, who is a retired colonel in the state corrections system. Watsons current status re ects an evolution that began when he was a teenager growing up in Bonifay. He had a friend in school, Floyd Harcus, who was involved in the industry and rst got him involved. He was raising greyhounds, so Ive been coming here since I was 18, Watson said of the Washington County track. Eventually he became partners with Sarah Lucas for four years in SL Kennel. Watson had another partner last year who he said decided to follow a trail of larger purses at a track up north af liated with a casino. Watson has had a hand in the kennel end of the business for eight years. Relationships forged over time have had a direct bearing on how he conducts the enterprise. As example: On his friendship with Ebro administrator Teresa Duncan, dating to when she started in customer services six years ago, Duncan recently became a rsttime owner of a racing greyhound, AJN Sweet Smoke: I knowd how she was. Knowd she be a good owner. I didnt mind getting her involved. I knew it would be a good thing. On Thomas Suggs, age 22, who is in his rst year as a trainer and handles the greyhounds for AJN: He started in Sarasota and has been with me eight months. (Kennel owner) Ray Thurber asked me to give him a shot. Said he had potential. Hes got his own ways. If I see were not winning we might sit down and talk and make an adjustment. Hes doing real good. Hes 22 years old and in second place (kennel wins), which is real good. On his bond with owners of dogs that represent AJN Kennel: You can tell in how they handle theirself and their dogs that it will be a positive experience. In addition to time spent tending to kennel-related business, Watson delivers the ground beef used as feed to kennel compounds located in Pensacola and as far away as Monticello. He also has a lumber yard and sawmill located on his 15-acre farm, though he admits since the downturn in the economy he operates the mill mostly by appointment these days. Still, Watsons work week can approach 70 hours during Ebros live racing season that runs May through September. He also spends 11 weeks in Melbourne and races his dogs during the winter-spring meet in Sarasota. Watson currently has 80 greyhounds in his kennel, of which 60-65 are active and the other are young pups getting ready to race for the rst time. You can tell when a dog no longer is going to be competitive, he said. Then you got to get somebody else in their place. In doing so, Watson said he makes sure where his dogs wind up following the end of their racing careers. I pet them out, he said. I pick out where mine go. I know the people. I know theyre taken care of. In that sense, the kennel is in a state of yearly replenishment. New puppies are acclimated into racing a racing routine, while nonproductive and often older dogs get new homes. Watson said that a greyhounds career usually is capped when reaching age 5 or 6, and often well before then. Watson said he keeps three or four female greyhounds as broods to mate with male racing greyhounds. Hes of the opinion that the females genetics and racing history play the most prominent role in producing offspring that mature into topight performers. You have to keep blood lines spread out, know who crosses with who, he said. If the line is bred too tight it makes them act crazy. Watson has a working relationship with a kennel in Fort White where his puppies are trained for the racing life. Until then, he said, you cant determine which dogs will be productive. You dont know until they start training about 14 months old, he said. You dont know until they go around the track. Watson estimated his expenses at $6,000 per month in operating the kennel. His greyhounds have to deliver, nishing either rst, second or third in a race, to earn points by grade of race to add to the payoff kennel owners receive. The money bet during an entire racing program, either evening or matinee, goes into the pool as well as the handle bet on simulcast races aired at Ebro as well as a percentage of the take from the Poker Room. From the purse money AJN Kennel receives, Watson pays individual greyhound owners 35 percent by race, and 50 percent of money earned in stakes races. Ebro annually runs the Mega Morris Stakes each summer for greyhounds that break their maiden or win their rst of cial career race at the track. That is another carrot for Watson to start his puppies racing here. One reason is the Ebro Puppy Stakes, he said. If you start them here, they have a chance to compete in the Puppy Stakes, which usually is $5,000 to $7,500 payoff. In addition to compensating owners, Watson pays Suggs a weekly salary plus a $100 bonus based on points earned for top. A kennel helper and additional part-time workers can be on the payroll, and Watson covers the cost of all meat, meal, supplies and extended veterinary services not provided by the track veterinarian. Suggs was raised in the vicinity of Ebro Greyhound Park and attended Vernon High School before nishing his last two years at Freeport. He said that maintaining a daily routine in the kennel is important. It may vary by trainer, he said, as each has preferred ways of doing things. But repetition is important in helping the animals adapt and remain in a positive rhythm. AJN Kennel was coming off a strong month when Watson was interviewed for this series. He estimated a pro t of about $5,000 during that time. Soon afterward, AJN greyhounds won only three of the next 48 races held at the track, but that doesnt stop curious onlookers from asking the obvious question. Every time you walk around people, they ask me who is going to win, Watson said. You might be dealing with one-hundredth of a second (for a 5-16 mile race usually decided in about 31 seconds) but people think that all trainers know. Kennel owners and trainers do understand when dogs that have fared well in the past suddenly arent performing, however. At times, injury or illness can be the culprit. You might take him off and give him a rest, Watson added. And when they see other dogs going to the races without them it can put the desire back in them to race. Watson said that he was en route to Hollywood, Fla., in October 2010 when he received the phone call on the day that forever changed how the kennels in the compound at Ebro were scrutinized. The bodies of 34 decomposed greyhounds were found dead of starvation during the offseason in one of the kennels, long after the racing meet had concluded. Watson said that initially he couldnt believe the news. I never thought that would happen here, he said solemnly. As a result, Ebro Greyhound Park has changed its operational procedures to ensure that it never does. Assistant manager Mark Hess explained that the track altered its policies to exceed state regulations and to emphasize were doing everything we possibly can to make sure that never happens again. Now anytime there is a racing greyhound in our facility we have 24-hour security, Hess said. We know the comings and goings from a log-in sheet kept in the guardhouse. Thats the major changes that we did in addition to weekly and random checks. Five of the abused animals were able to be saved, Hess said. They were rehabilitated and adopted as pets. Part III: AJN Sweet Smoke breaks his maiden and charges up the ranks to make his Grade A debut against some of the best greyhounds at the track.

Having been married to a veteran teacher of 29 years, I know the dif culties they face on a daily basis to maintain a conducive learning environment. The state and federal government continue to hand down more and more red tape with less and less funding to do the job. I will genuinely give my time and experience to make a difference in our school system. I rmly believe this position needs a person that has business and community service experience with proven leadership abilities. I have 38 years experience in business and ownership of a business. I have given countless hours of community service to Holmes County serving on many boards of directors. I also have been involved in numerous charitable and civic activities. We must continue to equip and support the excellent teachers and administration in this county. Our childrens education is a top priority for me if elected to the school board. This is my rst run at a political of ce. Politics have always interest me and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve on the Holmes County School Board. I have not served in the military. One of the biggest challenges the school system faces is continued budget short falls. As we all know the economy continues to suffer both at the state and federal levels. I believe we would fooling ourselves to think that budget cuts will not continue to decline from both the state and federal levels. We must work closely with both our Governor and Legislators to protect the tax dollars that our education system needs and deserves. This county cannot afford teacher layoffs, less staffing and less money to operate and educate our children. Therefore, my promise to the citizens of Holmes County is, I will work hard and tirelessly for you. You will have a presence both at the local level as well as in Tallahassee to protect what I believe is the finest school system in the state. I want the ne citizens of Holmes County to know that if elected on August 14th, for Holmes County School Board Member District 4, I, Shay McCormick will use my proven work ethics and proven leadership abilities to serve you proudly. I will be in your schools and will listen to the needs of our teachers. I will be in Tallahassee working hard to be sure we get every dollar available to us to continue to improve an already great school system. A chance to serve you proudly is all I ask.

Special to Extra BONIFAY As local health departments nationwide strive to protect the public from infectious diseases, bioterrorism, natural disasters and other public health threats, the National Association of County and City Health Of cials has recognized the Holmes and Washington county health departments for their ability to respond to public health emergencies. Working independently of each other, the Holmes and Washington health departments met the comprehensive preparedness benchmarks required to be recognized by Project Public Health Ready, a unique partnership between NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Holmes and Washington health departments join a cohort of almost 300 local health departments across the country that have distinguished their agencies preparedness efforts through PPHR. We are proud to have been recognized by Project Public Health Ready for our high level of preparedness, said Rick Davis, administrator for both health departments. We will continue to improve our ability to quickly and effectively respond to any public health crisis for both counties. NACCHO commends Holmes and Washington health departments for being a model of public health emergency preparedness, said Robert Pestronk, executive director of NACCHO. The public health system is making great strides thanks to the good work of leaders in local public health preparedness such as Holmes and Washington health departments. Local health departments recognized by PPHR undergo a rigorous evaluation by peer review. PPHR required both health department to meet a set of national standards for public health preparedness in three key areas: preparedness planning, workforce competency and demonstration of all-hazards readiness through exercises or a response to a real event. PPHR recognition con rmed that both area departments have a thorough and coordinated emergency response plan in place, that agency staff members are trained and that the agency exercises the plan and uses it during public health emergencies. The mission of NACCHO is to be a leader, partner, catalyst and voice for local health departments in order to ensure the conditions that promote health and equity, combat disease and improve the quality and length of all lives.

Special to Extra TALLAHASSEE Florida Department of Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson submitted a letter of resignation on June 31 to Gov. Rick Scott and State Board of Education Chairman Kathleen Shanahan. Robinson has served as head of one of the countrys largest state school systems since August 2011. Under his leadership, Floridas school system has realized some major milestones, including raising achievement levels for the rst time in a decade, obtaining a provisional exibility waiver from the U.S. Department of Education from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act one of the rst 11 states to receive noti cation and earning national recognition for accomplishments from early childhood learning to the Florida College System. The board is extremely grateful for Gerards leadership this past year, Shanahan said. He has worked with the board as we have raised standards for our students and our schools. He is a leader who embodies and understands the importance of education reform. We wish him the best as he makes the decision that is best for his own young children. Shanahan said the board will be working closely with the governor to identify a replacement. Robinsons resignation will be effective Aug. 31.

Happy ANNIVERSARY Congratulations Special to the News WASHINGTON COUNTY We all need immunizations (also called vaccines or shots) to help protect us from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, the Washington County Health Department is proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month. Shots can prevent infectious diseases like measles, diphtheria and rubella. But people in the U.S. still die from these and other vaccine-preventable diseases. Its important to know which shots you need and when to get them. Now is the time to make sure your children are up-to-date on their back-toschool immunizations. WCHD will be giving immunizations for school children from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Northwest Florida Community Hospital Back to School Fair. Immunizations also are given Monday through Friday at WCHD. Get your shots now, before school starts, said Susan Miller, WCHD immunization nurse. Upto-date immunizations are a requirement for attendance at school. The Vaccine for Children program provides the required immunizations at no charge to you. Everyone age 6 months and older needs a seasonal u shot every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages. Here are some general guidelines: Children need a series of shots from birth to age 6; pre-teens need recommended shots at age 11 or 12; and all adults need a booster shot every 10 years to help protect against tetanus and diphtheria. Talk to your doctor or nurse to nd out which immunizations you need. For more information, call WCHD at 638-6240.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 THG-11909 This week Dr. Dorothy Black, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVM), discusses some common over-thecounter and prescription medications that are toxic to pets. Many homes have these medications, and it can be surprisingly easy for pets to get a hold of them, Black said. Whether pets open bottles, chew on tubes, lick topical medication or just pick up dropped pills off the oor, these medications pose particularly dangerous threats. Even the most common over-the-counter medications can be dangerous. Non-steroidal anti-in ammatories, NSAIDs, such as naproxen, ibuprofen, acetaminophen and aspirin, can be highly toxic to dogs and cats. These human medications can have profound effects on the gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, liver and hemoglobin in red blood cells. Unfortunately, there is no speci c antidote, and an overdose often requires hospitalization and supportive care. Most cases of NSAID toxicity have a prognosis of good to guarded depending on clinical signs. It is best not to give any NSAIDs to pets, unless under the direct supervision of your veterinarian, Black said. And keep medications out of the reach of pets. Pets are naturally drawn to objects that we touch often and pill bottles are regularly handled, so they carry our scent. We typically use terms of excellent, good, fair, guarded and grave to give odds of survival in these types of cases. Excellent indicates we have little doubt that, with appropriate care (typically very minimal care), their pet will return to normal function, Black said. Guarded prognoses usually have a ftyfty chance for survival with aggressive treatment, and the pet may not recover to 100 percent of what they were before poisoning. Without treatment the pet is likely to die. Vitamin D analogs, which are used topically to treat psoriasis, also top Blacks list of toxic medicines. If pets lick the product off the skin, kidney failure could occur. Signs of poisoning are vomiting, diarrhea and increased urination and drinking. As with NSAIDs, there is no antidote. If the pet is decontaminated before clinical signs emerge, the prognosis is good. However, if clinical signs occur, the prognosis is guarded. The topical medications are particularly alarming, because if your pet licks the application site on your body, they can unintentionally ingest the medication, Black said. Many people dont realize the danger that poses to pets. Medications containing progesterone, such as birth control pills and some topical cancer medications, are also dangerous. If ingested in large quantities, these medications can lead to bone marrow toxicity and seizures. Since there is no antidote for progesterone poisoning, supportive care is the only treatment option if clinical signs are presented, and at that point the prognosis is guarded. Amphetamines, which are commonly used to treat Attention De cit Disorder (ADD) can also have alarming effects on pets. If ingested by cats or dogs, amphetamines can cause hyperactivity, aggressive behavior, vocalization, elevated body temperature, heart arrhythmias tremors, and seizures. Although supportive care is usually successful, high-dose intoxications carry a guarded prognosis. It should be noted that supportive care can lead to successful recovery, but it is rather expensive and can force some pet owners to make tough decisions, Black said. This is one of those times that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Its best to protect your pets from the outset. Keep medications contained and beware of topical applications.

Suggestions for future topics may be directed to cvmtoday@cvm.tamu.edu. by CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The local craft group Krafty Katz made a trip to Scared Heart Childrens Hospital in Pensacola July 30 to deliver blankets to the children in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit), the Infant and Toddlers Unit and the School Age Unit. The group, consisting of Vicki Lamb, Linda Bybee and Cathrine Lamb, took more than 50 blankets, six journals and three hats to the children. The blankets were split between all of the units, the journals went to the school age unit for the children to keep a written statement of their day-to-day life as they are in the hospital, and the hats were given to the oncology unit. Marina Holley, foundation development coordinator for Scared Heart, gave the group a tour of the different units. Children as they about to be released from Scared Heart Childrens Hospital are given the opportunity to paint a ceiling tile to be placed of the ceiling. These tiles are placed on the ceiling in the hallways so the children have something to look at as they go for procedures. Marina showed the ladies the new Healing Garden that was just opened in March 2012. This is an outside area that has been built between to wings of the hospital to allow patients to get fresh air and do physical therapy without being around other people, which would put the children with immune disorders at risk for becoming sicker. Linda and Cathrine, the two members that were able to make the trip, were in the company of Vicki Kirkland, the Walmart fundraising coordinator. The Scared Heart Childrens Hospital is located in Pensacola. The hospital is the only pediatric hospital providing care to children regardless of ability to pay in Northwest Florida. SHCH is currently serving children from Northwest Florida and south Alabama. The state-of-the-art hospital boasts 106-beds for children, with 55 of those beds being in the NICU. The hospital has been designated by the state of Florida as the only pediatric trauma referral center in Northwest Florida. Scared Heart Childrens Hospital is the areas only Level III NICU. The nurses and doctors are on standby to take care of and treat these critically ill children and to take care of any problems that come up from these babies being sick and/or premature. SHCH also boasts the areas only PICU. The PICU is a 10-bed unit where they take care of the most critically ill or injured children. There are 50 other beds outside of the NICU and PICU for sick children or for those children who have cancer. The hospital has a oneroom school, where children can complete their school work so they do not fall behind. There is also an age-appropriate playroom in each of the units, so the children may interact with one another if they are able to. The Scared Heart Childrens Hospital provides pediatric physicians who specialize in the following areas: cardiology; critical care; emergency; gastroenterology; general surgery; hematology/oncology; nephrology; neurology; neurosurgery; orthopedics; otolaryngology; pulmonology; rheumatology; surgery and urology. The hospital also offers the following outpatient services with a pediatric specialists: dental clinic; ambulatory care center, emergency department; Nemours Childrens Clinic; Developmental Evaluation and Early Intervention Program, and a dialysis unit. They also have a Miracle Camp for children with chronic illnesses. For more information about the Scared Heart Foundation, call 416-4660. The Krafty Katz will be making another trip sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you would like to donate material (cotton, eece or annel), sheets (the group uses these for the backs of the blankets), hats (for the children on the oncology unit) or anything else you may wish to send to the units. The group will also take any new or gently used blankets to the hospital. For more information, please call Vicki Lamb, Krafty Katz member, at 638-1483 or 326-3319.

Place your message here for only $8.00 per week. First Baptist Church come as you are Mike Orr, Pastor 1300 South Blvd. PO Box 643 Chipley, Florida (850) 638-1830 Place your message here for only $8.00 per week. Let Go of Hate Hatred and anger are like hot coals, and if you pick them up to hurl them at your enemies you are sure to get burned. All wisdom counsels us to let go of hatred, and tells us moreover that hatred cannot be overcome by hatred. Only love can conquer hate. The Bible tells us to renounce hatred almost as often as it tells us positively to love. Consider the 23rd chapter of Deuteronomy, where God tells the Israelites Do not despise an Edomite, for the Edomites are related to you. Do not despise an Egyptian, because you resided as foreigners in their country. (Deuter onomy 23: 7) Throughout the Old Testament, the are told simply that they must have the law of love and mercy written on their hearts. After all is said and done, God cares less for the strict adher ence to the letter of the law than to following the spirit of the law, which is love. When in doubt about making a response to someone, we should consider choosing a loving comment. BROWN FUNERAL HOME 1068 Main Street, Chipley 638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy of Hatred stirs up wrongs. Rev. James L. Snyder It is funny where you pick up an idea. I know I was not born with a truck full of ideas like some people. Take, for example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has more ideas than you can shake a stick at, and, believe me, I have shaken many a stick at her, behind her back, of course. I have to scrape around for an idea, and then when I do nd one I am so exhausted from the search that I am not sure what to do with it. Then an idea comes looking for me. That is a strange phenomenon. I was watching the news with my wife when we heard the lead story of the day about the Chickl-A Appreciation Day. Im not sure I know all the political ins and outs of that sort of thing. Everything seems to have some kind of political overtone to it these days. What was once a matter of morality has become a matter of policy. Politics have invaded every aspect of our life, and I am so looking forward to heaven where, someone told me and I cannot reveal the source (but the word is out), there are no politics in heaven. Whenever you have an opportunity to go out and buy some chicken, I say take it. It was not hard to convince my better half to go out for supper. We do not do it too much anymore. What, with the traf c and the nances, it hardly seems worthwhile. That is why I always brag about my wifes cooking. Oh, boy, I will say after a meal, you cant get anything this good at some restaurant. She smiles, but I suspect she knows what I am saying. Well, we did try to go to Chickl-A, but we could not get within 17 blocks of it. It seems everybody and their third cousin was out getting chicken for supper. Oh well, you cannot participate in everything, but at least we tried. As we circled the block for the 19th time, the idea came to me. If we can have a Chickl-A Appreciation Day because the head of the company said he believed in some traditional values, then why cant I? I believe in everything traditional. I am the most traditional person you will ever meet. Before there was a me, there was not much that was traditional. I go back so far I can remember when dirt was clean. I want the whole world to know that I believe in tradition, and I am not just ddling on the roof. I know it is oldfashioned, but I believe in the Bible. If it is in the Bible, I believe it, although I must confess I do not understand everything in the Bible. But then, nobody understands everything in their world. The smartest person knows he does not know everything. I built my life upon the values stressed in the Bible and I take it as the Word of God. I believe in singing hymns in church. Most people in America have never heard a hymn let alone sang one in a congregational setting. If you would go to the average person on the street corner and ask what their favorite hymn was they would not know what you are talking about. I know tradition is old-fashioned, but I still embrace it. If it is traditional, I probably believe it. Some people believe that if it is new, it is okay, and if it is old, throw it away. Experience teaches us that it is the exact opposite. Take medicine for example. Sure, many people have bene ted from modern advancements in medicine. I appreciate every advancement. But then, if medicine has made such in-roads into our culture, why are more and more people sick? Why are the hospitals full and over owing? Why are there not enough doctors to take care of all of the sick? I am thankful for what medicine has done, but for every cure it achieves, three more diseases pop up sticking out their tongue. Yes, I believe in tradition. Most people are traditional in many areas of their life. Do you realize that it was traditional for your great, great, greatgrandfather to drink water? It was traditional for your great, great, greatgrandfather to go to sleep at night, to get up in the morning? And the list goes on and on. Those things, which are traditional, are those things that have endured the wearing element of time. In light of all of this traditional head-wagging, I want to propose another appreciation day. This coming Sunday, I declare it to be Local Church Appreciation Day. Everybody who believes in traditional values will show up at the church of their choice and make their vote count. I know it will be a shock, and we run the danger that many church ceilings will cave in, but I think it is worth the risk. Of course, there is the possibility that when many pastors see their sanctuary lled with people they will pass out in sheer shock. In the meantime, I am going to stick to what the Bible says here regardless of what happens. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward (1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV). Every Sunday should be local Church Appreciation Day. Rev. James L.

B6 | Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, August 8, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today A great resume and solid interview skills may place job seekers in the running for a position, but a survey conducted by OfficeTeam, a leading staffing service, finds that the results of a reference check can really be what makes or breaks a job search. Hiring managers interviewed for the survey said they remove about 21 percent of candidates from consideration after speaking to their professional references. Managers also were asked, When speaking to an applicants job references, what is the most important information you hope to receive? Their responses: Description of past job duties and experience: 36 percent A view into the applicants strengths and weaknesses: 31 percent Confirmation of job title and dates of employment: 11 percent Description of workplace accomplishments: 8 percent A sense of the applicants preferred work culture: 7 percent Other/dont know: 7 percent When hiring managers narrow the field to a few potential candidates, the reference check often becomes the deciding factor, says OfficeTeam executive director Robert Hosking. To distinguish themselves from the competition, job seekers should assemble a solid list of contacts who can persuasively communicate their qualifications and professional attributes. OfficeTeam offers five tips for creating a reference list that works in your favor: Choose Wisely Select people who can discuss your abilities and experience that directly relate to the position, not just those with the most impressive job titles. Offer a mix of contacts who can address different aspects of your background; for example, a former peer may be able to describe your interpersonal skills, while a past direct report can talk about your management style. Check in Beforehand Always call potential references first to get their permission and evaluate their eagerness to talk to hiring managers. Be sure to give all references a copy of your resume, the job description and the name of the person who will likely call. Be Prepared Provide clear contact information for your references, including their names, titles, daytime phone numbers and email addresses. Also, offer a brief explanation of the nature of your relationship with each individual. Consider supplying more references than are requested, so you wont miss out on the job offer if the hiring manager cant get in touch with one of your contacts. Think Outside the Box Its common for employers to seek out additional references for new hires either online or through their own networks. Since you never know to whom a hiring manager might reach out, you should not only remain on good terms with your past supervisors and colleagues (if possible), but also be selective about whos in your online network, on professional networking sites such as BeKnown and LinkedIn. Give Thanks Express your gratitude to people who agree to serve as references, even if they arent contacted by employers. Keep them updated on the progress of your job search and offer to return the favor by providing a recommendation should they need one. What employers want from job references Community BRIEFS

I also had the responsibil ity of overseeing various county departments, which included the following: Emergency Medical Servic es, Road Department Shop and the Recycling Program. While over seeing the recy cling program, Money was generated by the program, which in turn was placed in the county general fund. Grants for new ambulances were obtained and the EMS service expanded with the placement on an ambulance in the New Hope Commu nity. When disaster struck, road department employees from my district performed the repair work themselves, thereby saving money for the taxpayers. Holmes County School Board District 2 Wilburn G.

The challenge that I believe we face now, and what will become an even bigger en deavor in the future, is the ability to offer our children excellent educational and academic opportunities with minimal budget to work with. With this always in the forefront of my mind, I plan to stay abreast of possible resources to help meet this challenge.

Raising seven daughters and putting them through school in Holmes County has given me plenty of hands on experience.

Prior to that Ive held secretarial positions such as transcrib er operator and clerk typist. I am not a politician, and have no experience in the we have a lot of career politicians and perhaps that is part of our problem. We need some new people, new ideas and someone who is not a rubber stamp. No. My husband is retired with 35 years in USAF Reserve. The major problem for this is budget cuts. With the state cutting back on money available for education, we are in challenging times. I will be visible through out the year...not just at election time.

I will treat you with the respect and fair ness you deserve and put to serve as your next school board member and appreci ate your vote on Aug. 14. Thank you.

I am aware of a variety of learning resourc es and experiences that can be utilized to help Hol mes county schools. I have currently in school, so I pulse of our local education system. I also have two children with IEPs, making me aware of strengths and weaknesses within our ESE programs. I love people, especially children, and I am seeking county continue to move forward. I am ready to work hard to acquire what our schools, teachers, and students need, county wide. Unless school advisory board counts, none. Not a veteran. I foresee the county strug gling to meet the new edu cation mandates that are being implemented without additional funding, espe cially in technology. I fore see budgeting being a huge obstacle to overcome. I am hoping to be able to supplement our current budget with private sector resources, giving us the ability to meet our educa tional needs as a county and depend less on govern ment funds to provide for the necessary education of our children. Our children are our future, but many of them are apathetic or hope less when asked about their future. I want to give our kids the world, or as much of it as I can. I want to encour age them to reach for the stars, and, if they fail, they will at least reach the moon. A Rising tide raises all ships (JFK), and, where there is a will, there is a way.

John King Jr. Bonifay Lee Moss Bonifay Democrat My entire educational and professional career has been geared toward becoming Clerk of Court. I have been seriously considering seeking 10 years. I have always had a deep interest and passion for our judicial system. I have a total of 14 years experience in our judicial system. Upon graduation from Troy University, I began working with the Florida Department of Children and Families where I not only worked diligently to prevent child abuse but I also served as the Revenue Maximiza tion Specialist. These duties included securing and manag ing the federal funding neces sary to support the local foster care program. I was eventu ally promoted to Foster Care Supervisor for Holmes and Washington Counties. It was during this time that I gained an abudance of courtroom ex perience by preparing a wide variety of legal documents and participating in Depen dency court proceedings. For the past 8 years I have been employed with the Florida Department of Corrections. I am currently assigned to an administrative position as a I work daily with Clerk of ida and across the nation to ensure the accuracy of legal documents and inmate crimi nal commitment packets. I am responsible for case man agement of over 350 inmates.

No prior political experience. No military experience. I believe it will be a major challenge to replace the knowledge and experience that will be lost with the retirement of the current Clerk and Deputy Clerk. We will overcome this obstacle by maximizing the talent and experience of the staff already in place during the transition.

In addition to responsibilities to the court and duties as the county recorder, the clerk is also the custodian and auditor of the countys funds. My long-time experience of op erating my own business and paying the bills with my own money will be invaluable in my handling of the countys funds and paying its bills (including employee payroll and over 10,000 invoices last year), accurately and on time.

When choosing the next clerk, voters should consider I have a unique understand ing of the court system, which no other candidate has.

I will implement an approach to policing that promotes law enforcement involvement with the residents of Holmes County and inspires residents to get invested in the safety of their community. John Braxton Jr. has spent his entire career in service crime and protecting families. Throughout his career in law enforcement, John has worked on a federal, state and local level develop ing critical skills only acquired by a leader who start ed from the ground up working every aspect of law enforcement. I have worked extensively with several federal agencies including A.T.F., U.S. Cus toms, D.E.A., U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. State level investigations in many counties across the state from Key West to Pen sacola. Working extensively in an undercover role while investigating numerous types of crime including homi cides, narcotics, and property crimes. Worked locally as a deputy and narcotics investigator in charge of conducting narcot ics investigations for street level investigations in many Florida counties. Served as Narcotics Supervi sor for four county agencies and Chief Deputy at both Holmes and Washington I am not a politician; I am a career law enforcement of See BRAXTON on Page 6 WELLS: Candidates continue John Braxton ElectHarold Smithfor County Commissioner District 5 Dear voters of Holmes County, I began my service as County Commissioner in November of 1992. During that time the county had a recycling building that sat idle until November of 1993, when I was placed to oversee recycling in the county. In March of 1994 the Recycling Center was opened. We accepted white goods, such as stoves, refrigerators and scrap metal to help our citizens dispose of these unwanted items that could end up dumped in the woods because there was no place for them to be disposed of properly. I was also the deciding vote in NOT allowing the regional trash dump to locate in Holmes County. I decided it was too close to our schools and general public and did not want the smell and unsightly garbage piles from a large region in our county. It has been my pleasure over the past twenty-four years to assist schools, youth activities and individuals in need with fund raising activities throughout the county. Also during that time, I personally contributed several thousands dollars to these causes and returned $7,000-$9,000 back to the citizens of Holmes County each year during all the years that I was county commissioner. I believe my twelve years of public service as County Commissioner and my work in the community can be put to use again by allowing me to once again serve you as County Commissioner District 5.

I believe that the measure of success in law enforcement is not in number of arrests; rather its in the absence of crime. Veteran of the United States Air Force. Violence and drugs are com munity problems, not just law enforcement problems. It will take a close working relationship to effectively address these at every level. The illegal drug epidemic has a strong hold on communi ties all over this nation. That is no less true of Holmes County. We are seeing ram pant drug use, easy access to illegal drugs and the absolute destruction they leave in their path. If elected, we will join our community leaders in a effort to take these problems out at the root; providing fertile ground for positive growth and removing the weeds of negativity from Holmes County permanently. Tomorrows great inventors, doctors, teachers and crimi nals are the youth of today. We have no option but to in vest in our children to insure a future we all are hoping for. As your Sheriff, I will meet with every school principal and staff to discuss the issues will hold countywide forums for parents and students to highlight solutions for combating internet predators, bullying and prescription drug uses by our teens. Giving back to the com munity is my everyday responsibility and I intend to implement programs to give residents greater access to both their Sheriff and Under my administration, we will serve the community by providing law enforce ment to everyone equally and fairly, treating every person with the respect they deserve. We will make every effort to stand between criminals and their intended victims. We will handle non-criminal equal diligence.

If elected, I will bring the vision, leadership, and the dedication needed to make this our reality. Tim Brown Bonifay Republican -Incumbent I am your current Sheriff, and I feel that weve worked had these last three and a half years to serve the people of Holmes County.

I started out working as a Dispatcher, Ive been a a road Deputy for several years, Investigator for 10 years, Captain over the Sheriff for the last three and a half years. Been Sheriff for the last three years Not a veteran. One of the major challenges resources available. In the last three and a half years we have been able to do that without seeking a budget in crease. I will continue to do that by being a true Conser vative Sheriff. I understand where the money comes from. And I understand that a small county such as we are has a very limited tax base and we have to live within our means. I just want to say that Im truly humbles to have been able to serve you these last three and a half years. Weve worked hard to serve you. I also want to say that I truly give my staff most of the credit fore their hard work. They are the backbone of this depart ment and I am truly honored to have served with them. If reelected, I promise to continue that same level of professionalism. Dennis Lee Bonifay Republican I trained all my adult life for the job. After serving 12 years, I got so bogged down in the job that I lost touch with the people. During the last 4 years, people from all over the county have been asking me to run again.

I believe my experiences make me the I served as Holmes County Sheriff from 1996-2008. Veteran of the Air Force. Times are tough. Hard times bring out the best and worst in people. The biggest challenges we face are increased drug use and crimes that it brings to our communities. Ill face that head on and get to work on day one by providing highly highly supervised deputies to protect, serve and com municate with you. You de serve to know whats going on in your communi ty. A well informed and educated public is like a sixth man on the force. Ill also use every resource to maxi mize our budget, but I will safety for political gain. Ive lived out my law enforcement career in front of you, because I believe Holmes County raised my family to work to solve problems, dont just complain about them. Thats my mindset when it comes to the problems we face here. Everywhere I go, citizens tell me drugs and drug related crimes like theft are up. We fought a nationally recognized war on drugs. We caught the dealers, fought to cut off the source and offered help to those affected. Ill do it again. Children and families are hurting. I was in every school every year, educating kids on the dan gers of drugs and alcohol. Ill do it again. People feel disconnected and fearful. I helped start Crimestoppers, Community Crime Watches, and practiced good, open communication between staff and citizens. Ill do it again. We supplemented our budget with over $300,000 in forfeited drug ery grant and also hold my people accountable to work hard and work smart every day.

What has been structured here is a straw poll, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. This is to get the thoughts and ideals of the residents. Goodman said the vote would be a way of asking residents if they agree or disagree that businesses that already hold licenses to sell alcohol should extend their hours to include Sunday. Right now sales are only allowed Monday through Saturday with restrictions on times, Goodman said. This is just allowing these businesses who already sell alcohol to extend their alcohol sales to include Sunday. He said the expansion wouldnt change what stores could sell or who can sell, just the days they are allowed to sell. I have my own thoughts and opinions on the matter, Commissioner Kenneth Williams said. Im not approving because I agree with it; Im approving to allow the people of this county to say what they want for their county. Goodman said Florida statutes allow for counties to decide if their alcohol sales should extend to include Sundays and that in 1977, the Holmes County BOCC decided such sales would be prohibited. This is in no way us condoning alcohol sales on Sunday, Chairman Monty Merchant said. Its a way of nding out what the residents of Holmes County want, think and feel about the matter. The vote passed 3 to 2, with commissioners Jim King and Phillip Music voting no. Separately, the board approved of setting the tentative millage rate at 9.9353 with a vote of 3 to 2, with Williams and Commissioner Ron Monk voting no. We should set it higher and be able to make the cuts where need be, Merchant said. A budget hearing is set for 4 p.m. Sept. 10. The board also approved to move forward with the abandonment of Kelly Lane Road. Landowner Fred Webb confirmed that Kelly lane Road is a dead-end road that leads to the center of his property and asked that it be closed for safety reasons. The board approved Holmes County Emergency Management Services request to enter into Houston-Galveston Area Council Interlocal Contract for Cooperative Purchasing to purchase a new ambulance with a grant through a state bid. Also approved were EMS new non-emergency hires. The board approved Holmes County Extension Director Shep Eubanks request to travel to Orlando for a three-day professional improvements convention for $570. The board also approved to allow Eubanks to travel to Gainesville as the University of Florida screens four potential applicants for the position as the new Holmes County extension director. He said the university would send the best candidate back to the board for approval. The board also approved of hiring Joseph Ratcliff as the new mechanic for District 4 and approved of State Housing Initiative Partnerships request to increase the maximum money used in the Local Housing Assistance Plan from $5,000 to $6,000. There wasnt a good quality product for the amount of money that was offered, and every one of the applications were having to come back to the board for approval because they were so many dollars over the allotted amount, Goodman said.

He is a member of the Republican Party. The district includes Fort Myers and Naples. Other Republican candidates on the ballot for Nelsons senate seat include George LeMieux, Deon Long, Mike McCalister, Marielena Stuart and Dave Weldon. George LeMieux, a former senator, dropped out of the campaign on June 20 because of a lack of resources and put his support behind Mack, according to the Washington Post. Deon Long was also a candidate who, though he appears on the Holmes County Republican Ballot, no longer appears on the list of primary candidates, according to Ballotpedia. Long said the focus of his campaign is the roll back of power of Washington, D.C., back to the states as contemplated by the Founding Fathers, according to his website, deonlong.org. Mike McCalister is a retired U.S. Army colonel, businessman, university instructor and father, according to his website. McCalister served in the Army Reserves, Army National Guard and on active duty for a total of 33 years and retired in 2005.

He was a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Floridas 15th congressional district. Weldon was elected to the House in 1994 and served seven terms in Washington before announcing he would not seek an eighth term in 2008. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army.STATE ATTORNEYThe state attorney race between Republicans Jim Appleman and incumbent Glenn Hess will be a universal primary. If all candidates for an ofce have the same party afliation and the winner will have no opposition in the General Election, then all qualied voters, regardless of party afliation, may vote in the Primary Election for that ofce. These contests are called Universal Primary Contests, according to Santa Rosa Countys website, santarosa..gov.

Danny Glidewell of DeFuniak Springs faces incumbent Coley in the race for the district that includes northern Bay and Washington, Holmes and Jackson counties.

Call 638-0212. When Perrys Prattle column began in April 2003, the writers wildest imagination would not allow him to believe the variety of topics he covered in the next 10 years. Hester has collected cookbooks throughout our almost 60 years of our marriage. A wild guess would list the number at more than 100. Her collection includes everything from Southern Living to various other national magazines. She has supported and purchased books on cooking from many churches, civic and festival organizations, including the one titled The Possum Cookbook from Wausaus Fun Day. It was in January 2007, while attending a twoday bluegrass festival in Andalusia, Ala., that I bought my rst cookbook. It was in a Goodwill Store, and the fact that it was sponsored by Peoples First Community Bank of Panama City made the $2 purchase easy for me. The rst page contained a letter from the chairman of the board, Joe Chapman, with a personal handwritten note: Thank you for your business! As residents of Panama City during the early years of our marriage, we watched Joe grow into manhood, excel in many facets of life, nish high school, enter law school and become an attorney. Back in his hometown, he engaged in many businesses. His mother, Mrs. Gladys Chapman, a school teacher before entering the political arena, served many years as supervisor of elections in Bay County. Hester and I knew many of the contributors names, from our days in Panama City. Three years later, I saw a cookbook advertised by Zion Primitive Baptist Church in Brunswick, Ga., as a fundraiser for building a dining hall to the meeting house. I recognized recipes from across the southland of people I had come to know in attending church meetings. The heading for each type of food included a scripture quote. Under Appetizers and Beverage, the Bible reference was If any man thirsts, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water (John 7:37-38). The Vegetables and Side Dishes began with this quotation: The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live for ever (Psalm 22:26). Desserts give us this quotation: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23). The cook book is lled with quotes from philosophers and politicians. I dont know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody, from Bill Cosby. Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought, by John F. Kennedy. From Thomas Jefferson: Im a great believer in luck, and I nd the harder I work, the more I have of it. This light-hearted recipe in the churchsponsored cook book is for Elephant Stew one med. elephant, salt and pepper, one small onion and two rabbits (optional). Note the comical preparation instructions. Cut elephant into bite size pieces. This will take about 16 days. Cover with rich brown gravy and simmer over open ame, about two and a half weeks. This should feed about 3,002 people, but if more are expected, add the 2 rabbits. However, add only if needed, as most people dont like hare in their stew. The Minnie Pearl Music City Cook Book was purchased in a thrift store. Aside from the recipes for down home cooking, Minnies home spun tales and characters from Grinders Switch, including her boyfriend Hessie and Uncle Nabob along with brother are included in her stories. The Aunt Bees Mayberry Cookbook in our home was given to Hester as a birthday present from Tim, Debbie, Laura, Julie and Perry II on Nov. 12, 2010. I dont think either of us has gotten serious with trying any of the delectable dishes submitted by real people who were invited to participate. The book is lled excerpts from Andy Grif th shows of the past and will bring to mind many characters that could will be lost to time now that Barney, George (Goober) Lindsey, Aunt Bee and Andy have passed from the scene of time. Our special, The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Cookbook, was purchased recently, also in a bargain store. It came to us just after we had seen the rerun of Forrest Gump on television, which made it more special. Aside from the all-shrimp recipes, the booklet is lled with the philosophical sayings of Forrest that will be remembered from the movie. Heres some: They asked me if I was runnin for womens rights women are always right. Well, destiny is when youre born to do something, but you dont know what it is. Bubba was my best friend, and you dont nd that very often. Remember what I told you? Dont let anybody tell you theyre better than you. And nally, I happen to believe we make our own destiny. We have to do the best with what God gave us. The last cookbook for review today has been in our household since the days when the Rev. Tommy Brill was pastor of Blue Lake Baptist Church. This book was prepared by the WMU of that congregation and brought back many memories of those who have since died that submitted favorite recipes. A quick glance will show Pop-Up Bread by Ruby Zumstein, Angel Biscuits by Inez Morris, Fresh Apple Cake by Louise Tharp, Green Bean Salad by Civie Speights, Rocky Road Candy by Margaret Kent and Molasses Cookies by Fannie McGuire. With all the cookbook reading, I had to resist referring to myself as a gourmet cook after reading the dictionary de nition as a person who knows and appreciates ne food and drink, an epicure. I still know full well that my menu is limited to seafood gumbo and chip steak and gravy, served open-face style, along with potatoes sticks from a can. See you all next week.Cookbook collection spans almost 60 years Every time I pass the intersection of Highway 90 and 79, I keep thinking of the words of the song done by Five Men Electrical Band in the 1980s: Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Dont you know its enough to be blowin my mind. Do this, do that, cant you read the sign? This sort of protest song mentions several signs: Long-haired freaky people need not apply. Anybody trespassing will be shot on sight. You got to have shirt and tie to get a seat, else you cant even watch. No, you cant eat. He nally nds one sign that says, Welcome to kneel down and pray. But when they passed the plate, I dont have a penny to pay, the song says. This song, which I dont believe ever made to the top of any of the charts, is not talking about the political signs, which are crowding the landscape. However, the number and size of them seems to be somewhat overboard. They bring up questions to my mind. First, how effective are they? Do voters assume that the one who has the most signs or the largest, most prominent signs have the most support? Then, who decides where they can be put? I understand that in our city, Bonifay, a candidate can pay a fee and place them on the city right-ofway. Who polices that? If they are in a homeowners yard, I assume they are supporting that candidate. But then you see some yards just decorated with a number of candidates signs, some for the same of ce. If I allow one in my yard for someone I support, does that give others the right to put one there too? If not, is it legal for me to remove unwanted ones? Who is responsible for cutting the grass around them wherever they are? Or straighten them up when the wind blows them over? What about those on highway rights of way? Telephone or light poles? I suppose the candidates know the answers to these questions, but I dont know that they or their supporters abide by the rules. I havent traveled the rural areas of our county much this election year, so I cant comment on the sign situation. Nor have I traveled out of Holmes, Washington and Bay counties. But Washington County seems to have as plentiful a supply of them as we do. One innovative contender there has individual hand painted signs that I have noticed. The primary voting will be Aug. 14, and we have the mail-out from our ef cient supervisor of elections, Debbie Morris. Some of the important of ces will be decided then, while others will wait until the general election on Nov. 6 to be decided. I urge you to read what the candidates have to say and decide who appears to have the best handle on the responsibilities of the of ce. Attend a rally and listen to the candidates, and meet and talk with them. Then decide if they have the quali cations to carry out those responsibilities. That brings up another question: Who is responsible for removing the signs and how long after the election do they have to do it? Is there a penalty for not doing so? Who enforces that? Personally, I dont think I have ever been in uenced to vote for someone based on their political sign. However, it is a First Amendment right to free speech, and I would not discourage candidates from posting them. They certainly give those in that kind of business a boost and generates interest in who is running. I am proud that we in the small counties put the larger counties to shame when it comes to our voter turn-out percentages. That makes our votes in the statewide elections a signi cant factor. Early voting and absentee voting are going on right now. If you put it off until Aug. 14, you can still vote. But dont miss out on the opportunity to exercise your right as a citizen. So I got me a pen and paper, and I made up my own little sign. It said, Thank you Lord for thinking bout me. Im alive and doin ne.

Helms elected Delta Kappa Gamma international presidentSpecial to The Times-AdvertiserWith more than 2,000 in attendance at the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Convention in New York City on July 24-28, Dr. Beverly Helms of Bonifay was elected as the societys international president. Delta Kappa Gamma is an honorary organization for key women educators with more than 90,000 members in 18 countries and 80 states. Expansion into Japan will occur when Helms installs the rst chapter of 53 women educators in October. The purpose of the group is to promote the personal and professional growth of women educators and excellence in education. The women educators honor women who have given or who show potential for distinctive service in any eld of education. It advances the professional interest and position of women in education; initiates, supports and endorses desirable legislation in the interests of education and of women educators; endows scholarships to members to pursue higher degrees; and grants fellowships to nonmember women educators. In her acceptance speech, Helms requested the group not let what they know limit their imagination of the organizations potential. She challenged members to stay focused at the chapter level, set signicant goals, make the most of marketing and objectively identify obstacles to growth. Her desire is that the group will intentionally connect or reconnect with all members, engage them in the mission of the organization and also continue to attract younger members. Because communication is of primary importance to Helms, she plans to communicate in print and electronically with members. I have been blessed by the many opportunities provided by my membership in this organization, she said. Early on, I received a scholarship and had several mentors who made a difference in my life. I have been involved in leadership development, networking, global afliations, made friends in all 18 countries and have united with women educators of the world in a genuine spiritual fellowship.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection A lot of people who watch shing shows think y shing is a rich mans sport. They see y shermen going to exotic spots around the world and think they never will be able to do that. You dont have to go to Alaska to y sh. As a matter of fact we have some pretty good freshwater y shing right here on the fresh water ponds on the beach. There are 100 ways to catch sh from shocking them up to the surface to using a y rod to entice them to bite. Most people with the attitude y shing is beyond their economic position in the world had better think again. The reason a lot of shermen dont y sh is because they never had someone to show them how to do it. If you are willing to attend a few meetings this can all change and you can be shing for everything from blue gills to tarpon in a short time. With the advent of kayaks, it is very easy to slip into most of the ponds just opposite the Gulf. These ponds are not private and dont let anyone tell you they are. All you have to have is permission from a land owner on the pond that will allow you to cross his property and you are in business. I was very fortunate to have a father who y shed and taught me a little about it when I was young. I also had a few friends who y shed, and they also were a great help. If you think you would like to learn the art of y casting, there is a club forming locally that will allow you to be introduced to those who are looking for other people to share in the sport of y shing. This new club is being formed here in Panama City Beach for y shermen experienced and the not so experienced. The meetings will be at 6:30 p.m. every other Tuesday on the second oor of the Shore House Furniture store, 14301 Panama City Beach Parkway. The next meeting is Aug. 7. Future meetings will include Fly tying demonstrations by club founder Barry Kent and equipment suggestions by James Smith, shing manager for Orvis. He will share hints and types of sh caught with Flies in both the bay and local saltwater. For more information, call Barry Kent at 352-460-4107 or email bayffc@gmail.com. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net By FRANK SARGEANTfranksargeant@charter.net Some people love the new FWC regulation allowing a doubling of the daily red sh harvest from one to two per person in the northern zones; others hate it. But it is the rule for all state waters except the South Zone, and for those who love to eat red sh and think there are plenty of them this fall should provide some prime sh fries. Classic wisdom is that king mackerel appear along Floridas West Coast when water temps reach 68, and red sh, AKA red drum, appear when they rise to 86. That means August is kickoff time for prime red shing that will extend through October, especially for the giant bulls (which are actually females, by the way) which can weigh 30 pounds and up. There are fair numbers of redsh in Panhandle waters year around these days, but late summer through fall is prime time. Big spawners, some more than 50 pounds and approaching 4 feet long, travel into the sounds and bays from their usual offshore locations. The sh drop their eggs around the larger passes, typically around the new and full moon major tides. Meantime, they prowl nearshore reefs, riprap cuts and the edges of the ats to feed, adding a whole new element to inshore shing. Tailing sh on the ats are not as abundant in August as they will be my mid-September and on into early November, but there are enough around to make the pursuit worthwhile, especially early and late on days with dawn or dusk low tides. Many of the reds found on most ats at this time of year are likely to be somewhere near the 18 to 27 inch legal slot, though there are plenty of 30-inch sh that will join the migrating schools and leave the shallows as adults when fall turns to winter. Reds often are scattered in summer, but as fall approaches they gather up in big schools, and occasionally anglers are treated to the sight of a red wave crossing the ats, easing along the beach or moving through the larger passes as hundreds of sh come to the surface and literally turn the water red as the sun glints off their rosecolored backs. Some of these jumbos are caught by anglers towing large spoons, diving plugs or big live baits often shermen after kings or grouper connect with the lunker reds. They can also be caught by casting a big topwater plug or any live bait sh into a visible school; hits are instant. All of these sh far exceed the maximum legal size and must be released, but they put on a wonderful battle. (Use debarbed hooks if you target oversized reds, so that they can be released without injury remember these are the mommas and poppas that create the smaller ones we chase on the ats the rest of the year.) Jumbo reds are all catch-andrelease no harvest is permitted. But if you want to tangle with some of these giants, one likely tactic is to set up on any Panhandle pier or the rocks of any Panhandle jetty and soak a slab of fresh-cut mullet or pin sh, or even better free-line live pin sh, grunts or nger mullet. This is heavy tackle actionyoull need at least 25 pound test line and a reel that holds a couple hundred yards of it to prevent a giant red from running off with your gear, but its a unique opportunity for really big sh from shore.On the atsOn the ats, reds can be considerably more challenging. There is a lot of pressure on shallow-water sh these days, and a noisy or careless approach often sends an entire school eeing before you can catch even one. Spotting the sh is the rst challenge. Often, you will see only the tip of a tail or dorsal n or the jump of eeing nger mullet to let you know they are close. Or, you might see a moving vee wake as a school pushes across a shoal. (They look a lot like the vee that mullet schools make, but are usually somewhat larger.) In calm, clear water, you sometimes can see individual sh as they cross a white patch of sand, but it requires Polarized glasses and a good eye. The best strategy is to get ahead of a moving school and then cast your bait or lure well in front of the lead sh. Let them swim up to it and hopefully you get a bite. Casting into the middle of a school these days usually sends the entire bunch racing for deeper water. Wade shing for tailers on the last of the low tides around new and full moons can also be great at this time of year. When the water gets to around 12 inches deep over the grass, sh start to tail in many areas. Most wade shers use arti cials, either soft jerkbaits, DOA shrimp, swim baits or topwaters. The trick is to make a delicate presentation and bring the lure just near enough to the sh for it to spot the movement. Hard-pressured reds may refuse most arti cials, but a tactic that often fools them is to use a scented lure like a Gulp!Alive! crab, cast it close and uptide of the sh and simply let it sit; they soon follow the scent trail to the bait. Chunks of fresh mullet or lady sh work just as well. Its also possible to catch plenty of reds with the now-classic tactic of anchoring in sloughs or large holes and chumming with crippled sardines. The reds nd the sardines and follow them to the source your boat where you offer them one with a hook in it. Expert guides are skilled in putting just enough bait in the water to keep the reds actively feeding, but not enough so that they get full and move on. With this tactic, its sometimes possible to set in one spot and catch a dozen or more reds, luring the school back each time it ushes away by tossing out more sardines.Red sh regsThe bag limit on red sh in the Panhandle is now two per person per day, and theres no closed season. The slot limit is 18 to 27 inches; larger or smaller sh must be released immediately. Excellent shing usually continues until the rst cold front in November sends most of the sh to deeper water but if you know where the holes are inshore or sh the warm water out ow of powerplants you can nd plenty of eating size reds all winter.Reds on the tableRed sh llets are moist and tender, good in a variety of recipes. However, the species does have a pronounced red line down each side, and unless that line is removed, it adds a somewhat shy taste to the meat, which some people dont like. One of the best recipes for reds is baked, in the shell, which means the gutted carcass, head on, is wrapped in foil and placed on the grill or in a 350-degree oven. Stuf ng the cavity with sliced oranges or lemons adds a nice extra tang. Cook until a fork passes easily through the thickest part of the shoulders. When the sh is cooked, slide a knife just under the skin and run it down the backbone, then peel away the skin. This reveals the llet and the red line. Slip a spatula under the red line and lift it away, and the sh is ready for the table. Serving-size portions lift easily off the bones. Reds are also good just plain fried; llet, skin, cut out the red line and section the llets into eating-size pieces. Dip in cornmeal or crushed corn akes, then drop into hot vegetable oil or peanut oil. Cook until the coating turns light brown, then drain on layers of paper napkins and serve. Last but not least is blackened red sh, a dish made up to create a tasty dish from less palatable sh. But theres no question that its darned good. Basically the routine is to dip the llets in Cajun seasonings available at any grocery store these days and then fry it in a very hot cast iron skillet with butter. The mix of seasoning dust and butter quickly forms a blackened crust on the outside, while the esh inside remains moist and tender. (Leave it a minute too long and all you have is burnt sh, but done right, this is a great dish.) TIPS FOR SPOOKY REDS More elevation means you can see ats reds farther away, which is why poling platforms and casting towers are found on many ats rigs. However, the higher you are, the father away a red sh can see you. Its good to use the tower to locate the sh, but sometimes youll have to step down and crouch on the deck while casting if you want to get them to eat. If you sh from a boat, use the pushpole and the PowerPole or Talon rather than the trolling motor and anchor when ever possible. With light winds, simply drifting or letting the tide carry you can be the best possible approach but be ready to stop the boat immediately when you see sh ahead. Otherwise, youll drift too close and spook them. When possible, let the sh come to you; determine their direction of travel, get the boat well ahead of them and sit in silence while they feed into casting range. When sh chase your lure close, get smallcrouch down so that he cant see you up there manipulating that rod. While a silent approach in a ats boat is good, a silent approach while wading is much better; theres a lot less for the sh to see, and that means you can get closer most of the time.DOUBLE UPNew regulations increase redfish daily limit to twoContributed photos Giant redfish like this one, caught on the northeast side of Florida by Captain Don Dingman and helpers, are also found in Panhandle waters in late summer and fall. Like all reds longer than 27 inches, they must be released immediately per state regulations. Below, shallow flats can be ideal locations to spot tailing redfish, particularly on the low tides created by new and full moon periods.

SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com ASectionThis is Part 2 of a threepart series on Ebro Greyhound Park.By PAT McCANN747-5068 | @pcnhpat pmccann@pcnh.com EBRO It isnt meant as a slight to either party when saying that Joe Watson would have t nicely with the cast of The Andy Grif th Show. Watsons unassuming demeanor and down-home work ethic are virtues embodied in the long-running staple of American television. He doesnt make a grand entrance or command a room. More than likely, he could be the one over in the corner getting the job done. Now 49, the Caryville resident is in his rst year as sole owner of a greyhound racing kennel, AJN, which occupies kennel No. 5 in the compound in the northwest corner of the property at Ebro Greyhound Park. The J and the N represent Joe and wife, Nita, who is a retired colonel in the state corrections system. Watsons current status re ects an evolution that began when he was a teenager growing up in Bonifay. He had a friend in school, Floyd Harcus, who was involved in the industry and rst got him involved. He was raising greyhounds, so Ive been coming here since I was 18, Watson said of the Washington County track. Eventually he became partners with Sarah Lucas for four years in SL Kennel. Watson had another partner last year who he said decided to follow a trail of larger purses at a track up north af liated with a casino. Watson has had a hand in the kennel end of the business for eight years. Relationships forged over time have had a direct bearing on how he conducts the enterprise. As example: On his friendship with Ebro administrator Teresa Duncan, dating to when she started in customer services six years ago, Duncan recently became a rsttime owner of a racing greyhound, AJN Sweet Smoke: I knowd how she was. Knowd she be a good owner. I didnt mind getting her involved. I knew it would be a good thing. On Thomas Suggs, age 22, who is in his rst year as a trainer and handles the greyhounds for AJN: He started in Sarasota and has been with me eight months. (Kennel owner) Ray Thurber asked me to give him a shot. Said he had potential. Hes got his own ways. If I see were not winning we might sit down and talk and make an adjustment. Hes doing real good. Hes 22 years old and in second place (kennel wins), which is real good. On his bond with owners of dogs that represent AJN Kennel: You can tell in how they handle theirself and their dogs that it will be a positive experience. In addition to time spent tending to kennel-related business, Watson delivers the ground beef used as feed to kennel compounds located in Pensacola and as far away as Monticello. He also has a lumber yard and sawmill located on his 15-acre farm, though he admits since the downturn in the economy he operates the mill mostly by appointment these days. Still, Watsons work week can approach 70 hours during Ebros live racing season that runs May through September. He also spends 11 weeks in Melbourne and races his dogs during the winter-spring meet in Sarasota. Watson currently has 80 greyhounds in his kennel, of which 60-65 are active and the other are young pups getting ready to race for the rst time. You can tell when a dog no longer is going to be competitive, he said. Then you got to get somebody else in their place. In doing so, Watson said he makes sure where his dogs wind up following the end of their racing careers. I pet them out, he said. I pick out where mine go. I know the people. I know theyre taken care of. In that sense, the kennel is in a state of yearly replenishment. New puppies are acclimated into racing a racing routine, while nonproductive and often older dogs get new homes. Watson said that a greyhounds career usually is capped when reaching age 5 or 6, and often well before then. Watson said he keeps three or four female greyhounds as broods to mate with male racing greyhounds. Hes of the opinion that the females genetics and racing history play the most prominent role in producing offspring that mature into topight performers. You have to keep blood lines spread out, know who crosses with who, he said. If the line is bred too tight it makes them act crazy. Watson has a working relationship with a kennel in Fort White where his puppies are trained for the racing life. Until then, he said, you cant determine which dogs will be productive. You dont know until they start training about 14 months old, he said. You dont know until they go around the track. Watson estimated his expenses at $6,000 per month in operating the kennel. His greyhounds have to deliver, nishing either rst, second or third in a race, to earn points by grade of race to add to the payoff kennel owners receive. The money bet during an entire racing program, either evening or matinee, goes into the pool as well as the handle bet on simulcast races aired at Ebro as well as a percentage of the take from the Poker Room. From the purse money AJN Kennel receives, Watson pays individual greyhound owners 35 percent by race, and 50 percent of money earned in stakes races. Ebro annually runs the Mega Morris Stakes each summer for greyhounds that break their maiden or win their rst of cial career race at the track. That is another carrot for Watson to start his puppies racing here. One reason is the Ebro Puppy Stakes, he said. If you start them here, they have a chance to compete in the Puppy Stakes, which usually is $5,000 to $7,500 payoff. In addition to compensating owners, Watson pays Suggs a weekly salary plus a $100 bonus based on points earned for top. A kennel helper and additional part-time workers can be on the payroll, and Watson covers the cost of all meat, meal, supplies and extended veterinary services not provided by the track veterinarian. Suggs was raised in the vicinity of Ebro Greyhound Park and attended Vernon High School before nishing his last two years at Freeport. He said that maintaining a daily routine in the kennel is important. It may vary by trainer, he said, as each has preferred ways of doing things. But repetition is important in helping the animals adapt and remain in a positive rhythm. AJN Kennel was coming off a strong month when Watson was interviewed for this series. He estimated a pro t of about $5,000 during that time. Soon afterward, AJN greyhounds won only three of the next 48 races held at the track, but that doesnt stop curious onlookers from asking the obvious question. Every time you walk around people, they ask me who is going to win, Watson said. You might be dealing with one-hundredth of a second (for a 5-16 mile race usually decided in about 31 seconds) but people think that all trainers know. Kennel owners and trainers do understand when dogs that have fared well in the past suddenly arent performing, however. At times, injury or illness can be the culprit. You might take him off and give him a rest, Watson added. And when they see other dogs going to the races without them it can put the desire back in them to race. Watson said that he was en route to Hollywood, Fla., in October 2010 when he received the phone call on the day that forever changed how the kennels in the compound at Ebro were scrutinized. The bodies of 34 decomposed greyhounds were found dead of starvation during the offseason in one of the kennels, long after the racing meet had concluded. Watson said that initially he couldnt believe the news. I never thought that would happen here, he said solemnly. As a result, Ebro Greyhound Park has changed its operational procedures to ensure that it never does. Assistant manager Mark Hess explained that the track altered its policies to exceed state regulations and to emphasize were doing everything we possibly can to make sure that never happens again. Now anytime there is a racing greyhound in our facility we have 24-hour security, Hess said. We know the comings and goings from a log-in sheet kept in the guardhouse. Thats the major changes that we did in addition to weekly and random checks. Five of the abused animals were able to be saved, Hess said. They were rehabilitated and adopted as pets.

Having been married to a veteran teacher of 29 years, I know the dif culties they face on a daily basis to maintain a conducive learning environment. The state and federal government continue to hand down more and more red tape with less and less funding to do the job. I will genuinely give my time and experience to make a difference in our school system. I rmly believe this position needs a person that has business and community service experience with proven leadership abilities. I have 38 years experience in business and ownership of a business. I have given countless hours of community service to Holmes County serving on many boards of directors. I also have been involved in numerous charitable and civic activities. We must continue to equip and support the excellent teachers and administration in this county. Our childrens education is a top priority for me if elected to the school board. This is my rst run at a political of ce. Politics have always interest me and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve on the Holmes County School Board. I have not served in the military. One of the biggest challenges the school system faces is continued budget short falls. As we all know the economy continues to suffer both at the state and federal levels. I believe we would fooling ourselves to think that budget cuts will not continue to decline from both the state and federal levels. We must work closely with both our Governor and Legislators to protect the tax dollars that our education system needs and deserves. This county cannot afford teacher layoffs, less staffing and less money to operate and educate our children. Therefore, my promise to the citizens of Holmes County is, I will work hard and tirelessly for you. You will have a presence both at the local level as well as in Tallahassee to protect what I believe is the finest school system in the state. I want the ne citizens of Holmes County to know that if elected on August 14th, for Holmes County School Board Member District 4, I, Shay McCormick will use my proven work ethics and proven leadership abilities to serve you proudly. I will be in your schools and will listen to the needs of our teachers.

Special to ExtraBONIFAY As local health departments nationwide strive to protect the public from infectious diseases, bioterrorism, natural disasters and other public health threats, the National Association of County and City Health Of cials has recognized the Holmes and Washington county health departments for their ability to respond to public health emergencies. Working independently of each other, the Holmes and Washington health departments met the comprehensive preparedness benchmarks required to be recognized by Project Public Health Ready, a unique partnership between NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Holmes and Washington health departments join a cohort of almost 300 local health departments across the country that have distinguished their agencies preparedness efforts through PPHR. We are proud to have been recognized by Project Public Health Ready for our high level of preparedness, said Rick Davis, administrator for both health departments. We will continue to improve our ability to quickly and effectively respond to any public health crisis for both counties. NACCHO commends Holmes and Washington health departments for being a model of public health emergency preparedness, said Robert Pestronk, executive director of NACCHO. The public health system is making great strides thanks to the good work of leaders in local public health preparedness such as Holmes and Washington health departments. Local health departments recognized by PPHR undergo a rigorous evaluation by peer review. PPHR required both health department to meet a set of national standards for public health preparedness in three key areas: preparedness planning, workforce competency and demonstration of all-hazards readiness through exercises or a response to a real event. PPHR recognition con rmed that both area departments have a thorough and coordinated emergency response plan in place, that agency staff members are trained and that the agency exercises the plan and uses it during public health emergencies. The mission of NACCHO is to be a leader, partner, catalyst and voice for local health departments in order to ensure the conditions that promote health and equity, combat disease and improve the quality and length of all lives.

Happy ANNIVERSARY CongratulationsSpecial to the NewsWASHINGTON COUNTY We all need immunizations (also called vaccines or shots) to help protect us from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, the Washington County Health Department is proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month. Shots can prevent infectious diseases like measles, diphtheria and rubella. But people in the U.S. still die from these and other vaccine-preventable diseases. Its important to know which shots you need and when to get them. Now is the time to make sure your children are up-to-date on their back-toschool immunizations. WCHD will be giving immunizations for school children from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Northwest Florida Community Hospital Back to School Fair. Immunizations also are given Monday through Friday at WCHD. Get your shots now, before school starts, said Susan Miller, WCHD immunization nurse. Upto-date immunizations are a requirement for attendance at school. The Vaccine for Children program provides the required immunizations at no charge to you. Everyone age 6 months and older needs a seasonal u shot every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages. Here are some general guidelines: Children need a series of shots from birth to age 6; pre-teens need recommended shots at age 11 or 12; and all adults need a booster shot every 10 years to help protect against tetanus and diphtheria. Talk to your doctor or nurse to nd out which immunizations you need. For more information, call WCHD at 638-6240.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 THG-11909 This week Dr. Dorothy Black, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVM), discusses some common over-thecounter and prescription medications that are toxic to pets. Many homes have these medications, and it can be surprisingly easy for pets to get a hold of them, Black said. Whether pets open bottles, chew on tubes, lick topical medication or just pick up dropped pills off the oor, these medications pose particularly dangerous threats. Even the most common over-the-counter medications can be dangerous. Non-steroidal anti-in ammatories, NSAIDs, such as naproxen, ibuprofen, acetaminophen and aspirin, can be highly toxic to dogs and cats. These human medications can have profound effects on the gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, liver and hemoglobin in red blood cells. Unfortunately, there is no speci c antidote, and an overdose often requires hospitalization and supportive care. Most cases of NSAID toxicity have a prognosis of good to guarded depending on clinical signs. It is best not to give any NSAIDs to pets, unless under the direct supervision of your veterinarian, Black said. And keep medications out of the reach of pets. Pets are naturally drawn to objects that we touch often and pill bottles are regularly handled, so they carry our scent. We typically use terms of excellent, good, fair, guarded and grave to give odds of survival in these types of cases. Excellent indicates we have little doubt that, with appropriate care (typically very minimal care), their pet will return to normal function, Black said. Guarded prognoses usually have a ftyfty chance for survival with aggressive treatment, and the pet may not recover to 100 percent of what they were before poisoning. Without treatment the pet is likely to die. Vitamin D analogs, which are used topically to treat psoriasis, also top Blacks list of toxic medicines. If pets lick the product off the skin, kidney failure could occur. Signs of poisoning are vomiting, diarrhea and increased urination and drinking. As with NSAIDs, there is no antidote. If the pet is decontaminated before clinical signs emerge, the prognosis is good. However, if clinical signs occur, the prognosis is guarded. The topical medications are particularly alarming, because if your pet licks the application site on your body, they can unintentionally ingest the medication, Black said. Many people dont realize the danger that poses to pets. Medications containing progesterone, such as birth control pills and some topical cancer medications, are also dangerous. If ingested in large quantities, these medications can lead to bone marrow toxicity and seizures. Since there is no antidote for progesterone poisoning, supportive care is the only treatment option if clinical signs are presented, and at that point the prognosis is guarded. Amphetamines, which are commonly used to treat Attention De cit Disorder (ADD) can also have alarming effects on pets. If ingested by cats or dogs, amphetamines can cause hyperactivity, aggressive behavior, vocalization, elevated body temperature, heart arrhythmias tremors, and seizures. Although supportive care is usually successful, high-dose intoxications carry a guarded prognosis. It should be noted that supportive care can lead to successful recovery, but it is rather expensive and can force some pet owners to make tough decisions, Black said. This is one of those times that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Its best to protect your pets from the outset. Keep medications contained and beware of topical applications.ABOUT PET TALKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

The group, consisting of Vicki Lamb, Linda Bybee and Cathrine Lamb, took more than 50 blankets, six journals and three hats to the children. The blankets were split between all of the units, the journals went to the school age unit for the children to keep a written statement of their day-to-day life as they are in the hospital, and the hats were given to the oncology unit. Marina Holley, foundation development coordinator for Scared Heart, gave the group a tour of the different units. Children as they about to be released from Scared Heart Childrens Hospital are given the opportunity to paint a ceiling tile to be placed of the ceiling. These tiles are placed on the ceiling in the hallways so the children have something to look at as they go for procedures. Marina showed the ladies the new Healing Garden that was just opened in March 2012. This is an outside area that has been built between to wings of the hospital to allow patients to get fresh air and do physical therapy without being around other people, which would put the children with immune disorders at risk for becoming sicker. Linda and Cathrine, the two members that were able to make the trip, were in the company of Vicki Kirkland, the Walmart fundraising coordinator. The Scared Heart Childrens Hospital is located in Pensacola. The hospital is the only pediatric hospital providing care to children regardless of ability to pay in Northwest Florida. SHCH is currently serving children from Northwest Florida and south Alabama. The state-of-the-art hospital boasts 106-beds for children, with 55 of those beds being in the NICU. The hospital has been designated by the state of Florida as the only pediatric trauma referral center in Northwest Florida. Scared Heart Childrens Hospital is the areas only Level III NICU. The nurses and doctors are on standby to take care of and treat these critically ill children and to take care of any problems that come up from these babies being sick and/or premature. SHCH also boasts the areas only PICU. The PICU is a 10-bed unit where they take care of the most critically ill or injured children. There are 50 other beds outside of the NICU and PICU for sick children or for those children who have cancer. The hospital has a oneroom school, where children can complete their school work so they do not fall behind. There is also an age-appropriate playroom in each of the units, so the children may interact with one another if they are able to. The Scared Heart Childrens Hospital provides pediatric physicians who specialize in the following areas: cardiology; critical care; emergency; gastroenterology; general surgery; hematology/oncology; nephrology; neurology; neurosurgery; orthopedics; otolaryngology; pulmonology; rheumatology; surgery and urology. The hospital also offers the following outpatient services with a pediatric specialists: dental clinic; ambulatory care center, emergency department; Nemours Childrens Clinic; Developmental Evaluation and Early Intervention Program, and a dialysis unit. They also have a Miracle Camp for children with chronic illnesses. For more information about the Scared Heart Foundation, call 416-4660. The Krafty Katz will be making another trip sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you would like to donate material (cotton, eece or annel), sheets (the group uses these for the backs of the blankets), hats (for the children on the oncology unit) or anything else you may wish to send to the units. The group will also take any new or gently used blankets to the hospital. For more information, please call Vicki Lamb, Krafty Katz member, at 638-1483 or 326-3319.

All wisdom counsels us to let go of hatred, and tells us moreover that hatred cannot be overcome by hatred. Only love can conquer hate. The Bible tells us to renounce hatred almost as often as it tells us positively to love. Consider the 23rd chapter of Deuteronomy, where God tells the Israelites Do not despise an Edomite, for the Edomites are related to you. Do not despise an Egyptian, because you resided as foreigners in their country. (Deuteronomy 23: 7) Throughout the Old Testament, the are told simply that they must have the law of love and mercy written on their hearts. After all is said and done, God cares less for the strict adherence to the letter of the law than to following the spirit of the law, which is love. When in doubt about making a response to someone, we should consider choosing a loving comment.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy ofHatred stirs up wrongs. Rev. James L. Snyder It is funny where you pick up an idea. I know I was not born with a truck full of ideas like some people. Take, for example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has more ideas than you can shake a stick at, and, believe me, I have shaken many a stick at her, behind her back, of course. I have to scrape around for an idea, and then when I do nd one I am so exhausted from the search that I am not sure what to do with it. Then an idea comes looking for me. That is a strange phenomenon. I was watching the news with my wife when we heard the lead story of the day about the Chickl-A Appreciation Day. Im not sure I know all the political ins and outs of that sort of thing. Everything seems to have some kind of political overtone to it these days. What was once a matter of morality has become a matter of policy. Politics have invaded every aspect of our life, and I am so looking forward to heaven where, someone told me and I cannot reveal the source (but the word is out), there are no politics in heaven. Whenever you have an opportunity to go out and buy some chicken, I say take it. It was not hard to convince my better half to go out for supper. We do not do it too much anymore. What, with the traf c and the nances, it hardly seems worthwhile. That is why I always brag about my wifes cooking. Oh, boy, I will say after a meal, you cant get anything this good at some restaurant. She smiles, but I suspect she knows what I am saying. Well, we did try to go to Chickl-A, but we could not get within 17 blocks of it. It seems everybody and their third cousin was out getting chicken for supper. Oh well, you cannot participate in everything, but at least we tried. As we circled the block for the 19th time, the idea came to me. If we can have a Chickl-A Appreciation Day because the head of the company said he believed in some traditional values, then why cant I? I believe in everything traditional. I am the most traditional person you will ever meet. Before there was a me, there was not much that was traditional. I go back so far I can remember when dirt was clean. I want the whole world to know that I believe in tradition, and I am not just ddling on the roof. I know it is oldfashioned, but I believe in the Bible. If it is in the Bible, I believe it, although I must confess I do not understand everything in the Bible. But then, nobody understands everything in their world. The smartest person knows he does not know everything. I built my life upon the values stressed in the Bible and I take it as the Word of God. I believe in singing hymns in church. Most people in America have never heard a hymn let alone sang one in a congregational setting. If you would go to the average person on the street corner and ask what their favorite hymn was they would not know what you are talking about. I know tradition is old-fashioned, but I still embrace it. If it is traditional, I probably believe it. Some people believe that if it is new, it is okay, and if it is old, throw it away. Experience teaches us that it is the exact opposite. Take medicine for example. Sure, many people have bene ted from modern advancements in medicine. I appreciate every advancement. But then, if medicine has made such in-roads into our culture, why are more and more people sick? Why are the hospitals full and over owing? Why are there not enough doctors to take care of all of the sick? I am thankful for what medicine has done, but for every cure it achieves, three more diseases pop up sticking out their tongue. Yes, I believe in tradition. Most people are traditional in many areas of their life. Do you realize that it was traditional for your great, great, greatgrandfather to drink water? It was traditional for your great, great, greatgrandfather to go to sleep at night, to get up in the morning? And the list goes on and on. Those things, which are traditional, are those things that have endured the wearing element of time. In light of all of this traditional head-wagging, I want to propose another appreciation day. This coming Sunday, I declare it to be Local Church Appreciation Day. Everybody who believes in traditional values will show up at the church of their choice and make their vote count. I know it will be a shock, and we run the danger that many church ceilings will cave in, but I think it is worth the risk. Of course, there is the possibility that when many pastors see their sanctuary lled with people they will pass out in sheer shock. In the meantime, I am going to stick to what the Bible says here regardless of what happens. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward (1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV). Every Sunday should be local Church Appreciation Day. Rev. James L.

B6| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, August 8, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today A great resume and solid interview skills may place job seekers in the running for a position, but a survey conducted by OfficeTeam, a leading staffing service, finds that the results of a reference check can really be what makes or breaks a job search. Hiring managers interviewed for the survey said they remove about 21 percent of candidates from consideration after speaking to their professional references. Managers also were asked, When speaking to an applicants job references, what is the most important information you hope to receive? Their responses: Description of past job duties and experience: 36 percent A view into the applicants strengths and weaknesses: 31 percent Confirmation of job title and dates of employment: 11 percent Description of workplace accomplishments: 8 percent A sense of the applicants preferred work culture: 7 percent Other/dont know: 7 percent When hiring managers narrow the field to a few potential candidates, the reference check often becomes the deciding factor, says OfficeTeam executive director Robert Hosking. To distinguish themselves from the competition, job seekers should assemble a solid list of contacts who can persuasively communicate their qualifications and professional attributes. OfficeTeam offers five tips for creating a reference list that works in your favor:Choose WiselySelect people who can discuss your abilities and experience that directly relate to the position, not just those with the most impressive job titles. Offer a mix of contacts who can address different aspects of your background; for example, a former peer may be able to describe your interpersonal skills, while a past direct report can talk about your management style. Check in BeforehandAlways call potential references first to get their permission and evaluate their eagerness to talk to hiring managers. Be sure to give all references a copy of your resume, the job description and the name of the person who will likely call.Be Prepared Provide clear contact information for your references, including their names, titles, daytime phone numbers and email addresses. Also, offer a brief explanation of the nature of your relationship with each individual. Consider supplying more references than are requested, so you wont miss out on the job offer if the hiring manager cant get in touch with one of your contacts.Think Outside the BoxIts common for employers to seek out additional references for new hires either online or through their own networks. Since you never know to whom a hiring manager might reach out, you should not only remain on good terms with your past supervisors and colleagues (if possible), but also be selective about whos in your online network, on professional networking sites such as BeKnown and LinkedIn.Give ThanksExpress your gratitude to people who agree to serve as references, even if they arent contacted by employers. Keep them updated on the progress of your job search and offer to return the favor by providing a recommendation should they need one.What employers want from job references Community brBRIefsEFS

10 Voters Guide Holmes County Times-Advertiser August 1, 2012 Continued from Page 9 whole. No one can know what the future holds. Whether tough times continue or we experience and economic boom, I will work to ensure that county tax dollars are spent wisely. During my previous tenure board, such as the Council on Aging, library, Trans portation Disadvantaged, Tri-County Community Council and others. I also had the responsibil ity of overseeing various county departments, which included the following: Emergency Medical Servic es, Road Department Shop and the Recycling Program. While over seeing the recy cling program, Money was generated by the program, which in turn was placed in the county general fund. Grants for new ambulances were obtained and the EMS service expanded with the placement on an ambulance in the New Hope Commu nity. When disaster struck, road department employees from my district performed the repair work themselves, thereby saving money for the taxpayers. Holmes County School Board District 2Wilburn G. BakerWestville Non-Partisan For me its the satisfaction of helping our children become successful leaders in Holmes Countys future. If I can help one child do better in his or her studies it would all be worth it. Often times, it is just listen ing and providing resources, guidance and support to a child to make all of the difference of whether or not her or she fails or succeeds. Education/Experience: Instructor at Chipols Jr. College for 20 years Holmes County EMS director for 24 years and Paramedic spector State of Florida Grant Se lection Team Member Involved with the welfare of children in the Holmes County School System for over 30 years Lifetime resident of Hol mes County 35 years experience in healthcare, safety, adminis tration budgets and grants Available anytimeday or night If elected I plan to be on sight and available to listen to and address the concerns of Holmes County students, parents and teachers I have worked closely with the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners for over 30 years and have gained much from my ex perience that will be helpful if elected to the School Are you a veteran? If so, list branch of service. No, however, I am very proud of my youngest son, Joey Baker, who will be entering the Marines in the fall of 2012. The challenge that I believe we face now, and what will become an even bigger en deavor in the future, is the ability to offer our children excellent educational and academic opportunities with minimal budget to work with. With this always in the forefront of my mind, I plan to stay abreast of possible resources to help meet this challenge. I will be committed to educating our children for a safer and brighter tomorrow, because our children are tomorrows future. I have always been a hard worker, and will continue to work had for you if elected. I will be accessible to talk with students, par ents and teachers to listen to their concerns and ideas. There is no I in team, and working together everyone achieves more. Thank you.Debbie KolmetzPonce de Leon Non-partisan I decided to run for school board member because I feel I have alot of experi ence in the Holmes county school system that can be put to good use in this revolved around children and school has been a big part of my life. Raising seven daughters and putting them through school in Holmes County has given me plenty of hands on experience. Ive been very involved in the schools doing substitute teaching in K-12 for 30 years, serving on commit tees and advisory councils, PTO, numerous volunteer hours at school as well as community volunteer work. I am familiar with parlia mentary procedure being Chipola Regional Workforce Development Board for ten years. Ive attended school board meetings in Bonifay on a regular basis the past four years to keep informed. Ive run my own business for 24 years which involves dealing with contracts, bookkeeping, computer skills, and courteous service to the public. Prior to that Ive held secretarial positions such as transcrib er operator and clerk typist. I am not a politician, and have no experience in the we have a lot of career politicians and perhaps that is part of our problem. We need some new people, new ideas and someone who is not a rubber stamp. No. My husband is retired with 35 years in USAF Reserve. The major problem for this is budget cuts. With the state cutting back on money available for education, we are in challenging times. I will be visible through out the year...not just at election time. I will return phone calls and work hard to get an answer to your concerns. I will treat you with the respect and fair ness you deserve and put to serve as your next school board member and appreci ate your vote on Aug. 14. Thank you.Andrea Kelly SchillerPonce De Leon Non-Partisan Our schools need help and resources to provide educa tional experiences for our students. I would like the opportunity to operate position in seeking out and obtaining these resources for our students, teachers, facilitators, and administrators, mainly from the private sector. My degree in business as well as my extensive work and research in education, curriculum, and intelligences make me an ideal candidate for this position. I am aware of a variety of learning resourc es and experiences that can be utilized to help Hol mes county schools. I have currently in school, so I pulse of our local education system. I also have two children with IEPs, making me aware of strengths and weaknesses within our ESE programs. I love people, especially children, and I am seeking county continue to move forward. I am ready to work hard to acquire what our schools, teachers, and students need, county wide. Unless school advisory board counts, none. Not a veteran. I foresee the county strug gling to meet the new edu cation mandates that are being implemented without additional funding, espe cially in technology. I fore see budgeting being a huge obstacle to overcome. I am hoping to be able to supplement our current budget with private sector resources, giving us the ability to meet our educa tional needs as a county and depend less on govern ment funds to provide for the necessary education of our children. Our children are our future, but many of them are apathetic or hopeless when asked about their future. I want to give our kids the world, or as much of it as I can. I want to encour age them to reach for the stars, and, if they fail, they will at least reach the moon. A Rising tide raises all ships (JFK), and, where there is a will, there is a way. I am determined to bring a bright future to our Hol mes county students.District 4 Shay McCormickPonce De Leon Non-PartisanShirley Owens Graceville Non-Partisan For the past few years, I have had a desire to serve on the Holmes County school board. Since re cently retiring from serving children as a classroom teacher for 36 years, I now have the opportunity to give something back to the community by serving the people of Holmes County as a member on the school board. It would allow me to still have a hand in the education of our students. I have knowledge of cur riculum and the experience of working with children, staff, administrators and parents.

August 1, 2012 Holmes County Times-Advertiser Voters Guide 11based organizations and 7 years of command time in the Florida Army National Guard. What other political experience have you had? None. Are you a veteran? Yes. 20 years of honorable service in the Florida Army National Guard. I have served as a private through the rank of Cap tain. I have held various positions to include two different commands and 4 years of staff time. What challenges do you seeking will face in the near future and what would you do to meet those challenges? The immediate concern is maintaining a strong sound without jeopardizing the quality of education we provide for out students. In also having to do this we have to gear our resources to the legal requirements now handed down by the legislature and the federal government in many areas. Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls. I pledge that I will have an open door policy with all stakeholders in our public education system. This is to include students, parents, and employees of the District. I have established a reputa tion as a team and consensus builder in all of my assignments whether they be in my education career or my military career. The wish to be superintendent is not about career progression but about being the right per son at the right time for the challenge ahead. I will not be perfect in my deci sion making, but I will be thorough and I will provide intelligent, experi enced, and sensible leadership. With the grace of God and the help of the citizens of Holmes County we can have a school district that provides our students with the background and education they need to become pro ductive citizens in this great nation of ours.BROWN from Page 1 Elementary School and coached at Holmes County High School for 4 years. I spent 16 years in educa tional technology sales and management design ing curriculum delivery systems for hundreds of schools and school districts across the Southeast. I am presently the principal of Holmes County High School. What other political ex periences have you had? I have no other political experience. Are you a veteran? I am not a veteran. What challenges do you seeking will face in the near future and what would you do to meet those challenges? State budget cuts creat ing a lack of funding is the most immediate issue. New graduation and testing requirements mandated by the state and federal governments will also be a huge issue. The next superintendent will have to be very careful with spend ing and hiring. School and district level budgets will have to be met. Cost savings measures will need to be implemented across the board in order to protect the staff and educational programs we already have in place. We will need to implement ways to prepare students for testing and graduation. Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls. As your next Super intendent, I will work hard to make a great school system even better. I will take responsibility for the safety, security, and educa tion of the students and be accountable to the people of Holmes County. My plan is to focus on offering a broader range of opportunities that target the success of all students. An open door policy will be continued in order to listen to the concerns of parents and students to ensure that all stakeholders are treated fairly, consistently and with respect. Teachers will be provided support and re sources to maximize their ability to educate students in the 21st century. I will provide lead ership that encourages conservative and utilize resources and personnel students. DIXON from Page 1 I have no other political experience as an elected Are you a veteran? I am a retired US Army combat veteran. What challenges do you seeking will face in the near future and what would you do to meet those challenges? Obviously, the budget will be of focus. I feel that all programs will have to be scrutinized. This is where the community must be coupled up with the schools in order to help with the extra-curricular programs. I further feel that that technology and teaching must be balanced. Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls.

I have been seriously considering seeking 10 years. I have always had a deep interest and passion for our judicial system. I have a total of 14 years experience in our judicial system. Upon graduation from Troy University, I began working with the Florida Department of Children and Families where I not only worked diligently to prevent child abuse but I also served as the Revenue Maximiza tion Specialist. These duties included securing and manag ing the federal funding neces sary to support the local foster care program. I was eventu ally promoted to Foster Care Supervisor for Holmes and Washington Counties. It was during this time that I gained an abudance of courtroom ex perience by preparing a wide variety of legal documents and participating in Depen dency court proceedings.

WhiteBonifay DemocratJohn Braxton, Jr., Westville I know Holmes County can be the safest county in the state. We cannot expect law enforcement alone to solve all the communities issues. The way we make Holmes County the safest place to work, live and raise our fami lies is through a collaborative effort between law enforce ment and the community as a whole. make that a reality through community policing. I will implement an approach to policing that promotes law enforcement involvement with the residents of Holmes County and inspires residents to get invested in the safety of their community. John Braxton Jr. has spent his entire career in service crime and protecting families.

During that time the county had a recycling building that sat idle until November of 1993, when I was placed to oversee recycling in the county. In March of 1994 the Recycling Center was opened. We accepted white goods, such as stoves, refrigerators and scrap metal to help our citizens dispose of these unwanted items that could end up dumped in the woods because there was no place for them to be disposed of properly. I was also the deciding vote in NOT allowing the regional trash dump to locate in Holmes County. I decided it was too close to our schools and general public and did not want the smell and unsightly garbage piles from a large region in our county. It has been my pleasure over the past twenty-four years to assist schools, youth activities and individuals in need with fund raising activities throughout the county. Also during that time, I personally contributed several thousands dollars to these causes and returned $7,000-$9,000 back to the citizens of Holmes County each year during all the years that I was county commissioner. I believe my twelve years of public service as County Commissioner and my work in the community can be put to use again by allowing me to once again serve you as County Commissioner District 5.
