Weve got a bid outlined and ready to go, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. It will give them three weeks to set up a bid and (be) ready for board review by the rst board meeting in September. The board also approved a resolution stating they approved of applying for the Florida Boating Improvement Program to build a boat ramp on the west end of the Choctawhatchee River off U.S. 90. The program is offered through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The water levels are looking good now, but when they go down, theres nowhere to put your boat in anywhere in Holmes County, Commissioner Jim King said. This will be a valuable asset to the residents in Holmes County. In other business, Goodman told the board an easement was written up and ready for signing in regard to a resident who was willing donate land off Tri-County Road to round off and widen a dangerous curve next to his property. County Engineer Cliff Knauer said they had met with the owner and began the process but had been delayed because of some inconsistencies in the surveys. When we originally went out there it looked like he was donating over 1,800 square feet of land, but when we got to digging through the surveys, we found most of that land already belonged to the county and the portion hed be donating was actually not that big, Knauer said. Its a bad way to nd out, but at least we now know what were working with. Chairman Monty Merchant asked if the curve was all that dangerous, saying he had been informed extensive work would need to be done to smooth the curve and widen the road, such as cutting down trees and leveling the large slope. Knauer said the landowner often had to pull vehicles out of the ditch because the road wasnt wide enough to allow people to pass properly at that corner. Brown overtakes Lee in sheriff race Southerland looks to November By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland was in Northwest Florida last week, making friends and exing his campaign muscles now that the Primary Election is a thing of the past. Southerland, a Republican, represents the 2nd Congressional District, which now includes Washington and Holmes counties as a result of redistricting. A resident of Panama City, Southerland faces Democrat challenger Al Lawson on Nov. 6. Southerland had no GOP challengers in last weeks primary. It was hard work, preventing a primary, Southerland joked. But I did spend election night with supporters at an election night rally. Southerland was in the area meeting people and attending Thursdays Reagan Dinner in Bonifay.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, August 22, 2012 He also said multiple school bus drivers had complained the road was too narrow, the curve was too sharp to properly turn a bus and that it could become a possible danger because it created a large blind spot for drivers. The board agreed to allow Knauer to speak with the owner about signing the easement so the county could get started as soon as possible. The board also approved of bidding out for janitorial services, which last was bid in November 2008 and was due again. Weve had no complaints about our current services, Commissioner Phillip Music said. Theyve done an excellent job. Goodman said it was possible the county will choose to keep its current services but that it was good to put certain services out for bid every so many years to ensure competitive prices and services. The board agreed to allow 911 Dispatch Director Clint Erickson to go to Washington County to help train the new 911 dispatch director during his off time. I will be training her on my personal time, and if there should be a call in Holmes County my priority and my obligation is here in Holmes County, Erickson said. Its just that the new director worked very little with the old one, and when the old one retired he didnt train her any. He just left. Goodman said it was allowed through Ericksons contract because it was viewed like having a second job. Erickson said he made sure the help wouldnt interfere with his usual work hours but that he would be taking three vacation days over the course of the next four months to help train the new director. County Commissioner Kenneth Williams said he thoroughly disagreed with Ericksons decision and that his time would be better spent in Holmes County. You need to re-evaluate how youre spending your time, Williams said. Im not at all pleased with the idea that youd be closing your doors to the residents of Holmes County to help another county. Because Erickson is the only member in his department, the department has to close whenever Erickson is away. Erickson said the department would have to close when he took his regular vacation time anyway, which was his to do with however he seen t; however, he said if there was any objection from the board, he would decline the assistance immediately. Youre my bosses, and this is my priority job, Erickson said. If you dont want me doing this on my free time, just let me know and I wont do it. Merchant said the board was ne with what he did with his free time as long as it didnt interfere with his regular duties and he was well prepared to address the needs of the residents of Holmes County while he was away. The board and Erickson agreed to those standards. The board approved of the Emergency Generator Application, which they had applied for to purchase a generator for the courthouse shortly before the meeting on April 25. Its a big enough generator to provide for the entire courthouse no problem, Williams said at the meeting in April. The match is between $2,000 and $4,000 for a $29,000 generator with the possibility for an in-kind match for labor. We needed to apply for the grant that day, so it seemed like a no-brainer. The board agreed with Williams. The required match announced at the recent meeting is $5,000 with an in-kind match for labor provided by the county, which included pouring the concrete slab and fencing around the generator. The board approved of the city of Bonifays request to waive fees for the county to carry 100 tires out to the recycling center. Were waiving it once in efforts to help reduce the mosquito problem weve been having, King said. The board approved signing a letter for TriCounty Airport Authority proclaiming to be a nonprofit organization. The next scheduled meeting is set for 6 p.m. Aug. 28.

By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The July 26 decision by Judge David Maloney that Bay County failed to demonstrate it is entitled to draw water from a well eld near the Washington County border is a ruling that will affect the county for generations, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. I cant tell you how huge a win this was for us, Goodman told the Washington County Board of Commissioners on Thursday. There arent many cases where I get tickled, but this was exciting. Goodman said millions of dollars were spent in litigation costs in the course of the lawsuit. I went to bed that night and slept with a smile, Goodman said. On July 26. Judge Maloney, in a 95-page ruling on evidence presented during several days of hearings last fall, recommended the Northwest Florida Water Management District deny Bay County a permit to drill wells that opponents said would threaten the lakes of Sand Hills. The proposed wells have been controversial since Bay County applied for a permit to drill them in March 2010. Bay County initially wanted a permit to draw an average 10 million gallons of water per day later decreased to 5 million gallons per day from the Floridan Aquifer for 20 years. Washington County and The Knight Trust, which owns a considerable amount of land on both sides of the county line, appealed to the Division of Administrative Hearings. Maloney wrote that Bay County and the district would need to establish three things for the permit to be granted: that there was a need for the water in Bay County, that the drawdown of water wouldnt impact the environment and that it was in the public interest to allow Bay County to take the water. Both parties hired numerous experts who testi ed to the environmental impact; Maloney found the Knight Trusts experts and evidence more convincing. According to the ruling, Bay County and the district couldnt establish with the evidence they presented that Bay County needed the water because the county already has a water supply sufcient to meet the demands of the population. The plan was for the well eld to serve as a backup water supply in the event the Deer Point Lake reservoir, Bay Countys current water source, was contaminated. Maloney also decided taking the water would not be in the public interest, in part because the permit didnt restrict emergency withdrawals to an amount necessary for essential use. The failure to show what the impacts will be to these natural systems of extraordinary ecological and environmental quality is weighty when balanced against a need that doesnt exist and that may never arise Maloney wrote. Kudos to the board for ghting this and taking a stance to protect the citizens of Washington County, Goodman said. Future generations of Washington County residents will be protected, not just our children but our grandchildren. Washington attorney: Water lawsuit win huge By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Board of County Commissioners voted on Thursday to abandon Powerline Road, following up on a residents request made at the July 19 board meeting. The vote to close the road was 3-1 with Commissioners Todd Abbott, Joel Pate and Hulan Carter voting for and Commissioner Charles Brock voting against. Commissioner Donnie Strickland was absent. On July 19, Susan Sanders requested the county provide a prescriptive easement and cut short Powerline Road, which runs into the Spring Ridge subdivision and through a number of platted lots there. Sanders said no one actually lives on the road, which takes up about a half acre of her property. She has been living on the property for three years and said she would like to see the road closed. The money spent on grading that road is money spent on a shortcut which is used by very few people, Sanders said. Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz said at the July meeting that the road cuts through 11 lots in Spring Ridge, making them non-conforming lots. Sanders asked that the road be terminated on her property and offered to give the county the right-ofway to put a cul-de-sac at the end of the road per the countys requirements. Goodman said Spring Ridges developers put the value of each lot at $15,000, meaning the road affects $165,000 worth of property. What it amounts to is a compensionable taking, Goodman said. If you choose not to abandon Powerline Road, we will be looking at litigation. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said the road had been under county maintenance since the 1990s and was a county road; therefore the county could close the road if the board chose to do so. Commissioners vote to close Powerline Road

Dear Editor, I have not written this article in a t of anger, though I could have. I have taken months to try to get all the facts, and the enclosed is the result. Everyone needs a chance to voice their opinion, but no one seems to know anything. My opinion is that someone does but is keeping quiet. Why? Does being quiet make destroying graves more acceptable? No. I am a greatgrandmother who was born and raised in Holmes County. I have lived in DeFuniak Springs in the past and now reside in the woods of Geneva County, Ala. For more than a decade I have enjoyed book signings and speaking dates involving many senior groups. My fth book was published when I was 80. I am a 1947 graduate of Ponce de Leon High School and earned an A.A. degree in journalism when the youngest of ve was in kindergarten. I am presently doing online classes for a B.A. in biblical studies; it will help to keep my mind active and give me a challenge. I havent learned how to twiddle my thumbs and dont intend to learn. Thank you for printing the enclosed information. People need to know. Sincerely, Lura Spears Zerick (The following is the article that was included with the letter) Is nothing sacred anymore? I was taught not to walk on the top of a grave in the cemetery, so all these years I walked around any a grave whenever I was visiting a cemetery. Time does change almost everything, apparently. Now, if you want a loved one buried in a large family plot, simply destroy those gravesites that might be in the way and go ahead, bury your loved ones there. Those huge spaces werent empty of graves even when I was growing up. The point is that many of the families of those who were buried there are now dead and buried somewhere else. Since so many old timers are gone, who is to know and/or complain? Though I have been a word person over 45 years, there are no words to describe my pain and anger at being unable to nd the graves of two infant sons who were stillborn and buried in the Leonia Cemetery in Holmes County. An older sister and four baby girls were also buried there. She and her husband had the RH Factor, which was fatal to babies many years ago. My rst baby (1948) was buried on the left of one of her babies grave. None of these graves can be found today. During those days, small dishes (such as colored saucers) were placed on top of the ground to indicate that it was the grave of an infant. At that time people understood what those dishes meant. Few families had the money to place a name marker on the grave. My second baby, buried in 1961, did have a name marker, but that is gone too. I visited that grave many times; I know where it was. I have encountered all kinds of people, and as I get closer to 82, I am appalled at the things many will do all under the heading of greed or sel shness, the worst types of cancer. My mama told me as I was growing up, Honey, when you are nice to people, they will be nice to you. Sorry to tell you this, Mama, but that is not true. You also used to say, it takes all kinds and Im glad you are not here to see what all kinds have come out of the woodwork; you probably would not believe what you see. Sometimes I have that same problem; I dont understand why and how people can do the things they do. I have been unable to nd anything resembling a map of the cemetery. Doesnt it make sense to keep a record of the name, location and date of a burial? No one seems to know anything about the cemetery. The Pastor of Leonia Baptist Church told me that they didnt own the cemetery any longer, but he could not tell me who owns it now. He was to call me back in a few days but has not called. The church secretary said that the church has no papers concerning who is buried there, or when they were buried. I went to the courthouse in Bonifay to learn who owns the cemetery but did not get a satisfactory answer. No one knows anything. I do not want to sue anyone but only to share the fact that graves are being destroyed. I had been told that some papers regarding the cemetery were at the Holmes County Library. I learned nothing new there, only a reminder that my infants, not my sisters infants, were even listed as being buried there. I had already learned that by going online. So who do you contact if you want to bury a loved one in the Leonia Cemetery? I realize that someone has started a new cemetery. Who is in charge here? Are they keeping any records of the new cemetery? Will they stand up? I dont know if destroying a grave is a crime, but it should be. The fact is that seldom are there people around who can witness who does what. What do they do with the name markers, just throw them in the trash? Take the evidence with them to throw away later? I checked with the funeral home that handled the funeral of the stillborn baby who was born in January 1961. They had told me on the phone that they also added an approximate location of the grave. When I called again for more information, I was told they didnt keep records that long. So nobody knows anything, but I know something. Whoever has loved ones buried at the Leonia Cemetery, you need to go and check that their graves are still there. If a huge family needs a big family plot, the graves of your loved ones might be destroyed to make that possible. When a loved one passes, one or two members of that family go with someone to the cemetery to show where that person is to be buried. There must be space available; you dont simply destroy graves that might be where you want your loves on buried. Doesnt that make sense or has common sense disappeared? I am not an angry person, but I am angry that anyone would destroy my babies graves or anyones graves. That is wrong and evil. Family plots are nice but there must be empty spaces for this to be possible. I remember that cemetery from the late 1930s and 1940s, before the school building burned. Those huge family plots have not been there that long. I dont know who is responsible for this terrible deed, but I know the one who knows all about it. I imagine few are aware of this terrible destruction, but in my opinion, they need to be informed, and now some of them are. I can be reached at lzerick@aol.com if anyone has questions or answers. Wednesday, August 22, 2012 This story came to me via North Carolina when a cousin, Lillian Peters Pittman, who grew up here, sent it to Perrys Prattle and he thought since it was a Holmes County story, I should write it. Lillian is the daughter of the late Med Peters of Bonifay. She is much younger than I and the thing I remember about her was that she would accompany her grandmother, my grandfathers sister Betty Peters, when they would come to visit my parents in the summers so that they could pick black berries. I learned how to prevent getting red bugs (chiggers) when going into the woods. Aunt Betty and the children always sprinkled owers of sulfur in their shoes and around the waistband of their clothes. They moved to North Carolina while the children were all in school, but Lillian and Linda Bradshaw Sapp have remained in touch all these years. I am indebted to Linda Sapp for some of the information in the story. Blessey Marine Services, Inc. and Raymond & Associates, LLC held a ceremony on July 17, 2012, to christen their latest vessel, the M/V Vincent W. Sapp. The Vincent Sapp honors a 17year employee of the Blessey Towing Company, Vincent W. Sapp, 37, who grew up here and graduated from Holmes County High School in 1993. He began his career with Blessy Marine in 1995 as a deck hand on the M/V Laura Ann Blessy. He is now the pilot aboard the M/V Steve Scalise. The company has experienced tremendous growth in the intervening years and have continued to increase their eet. Recognizing that the companys success is largely due to the dedication of its employees, a plan was put into place to honor those employees by naming newly added vessels for the employee with the most seniority. The christening ceremony took place in the New Orleans harbor and a reception was held in River, Port, and Starboard Rooms of the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans. Walter Blessy, owner, praised Sapp for his ne character and his dedicated service on our nations waterways. Vincent was presented a Bible by Father Kurt Young and a ships clock by Mr. Blessy. In Sapps remarks, he expressed his shock at receiving such an honor, but gratitude and pride were evident as he broke the bottle of Champaign on the ship carrying his name. His daughter, eight-year-old Amiya, assisted and fouryear-old son Kylan watched. In attendance, also, were his parents Henry Tillman and Linda (Bradshaw) Sapp, brother Jayon and wife Tiffany, and daughter Bridgett. Aunt Helen and her husband Bob Moss and children from Texas were also there. Other Holmes Countians who work for the Blessey Company in attendance were Jeremy and Charity Short, David and Donna Mock who works on the Vincent, and Dustyn Grinen, Director of Operations for the company. The Vincent is a standard 88-by-35-foot tow boat capable of moving two 300-foot vessels along the Mississippi River and the coastal harbors of the New Orleans area. Vincent Sapp is the Pilot of a similar boat while his older brother, Jayon is Captain of another. Jayon, however, joined the Blessy company later than did his younger brother, Vinnie. When I was teaching 7th and 8th graders at Bonifay Middle School I never dreamed one of them would have a ship named for them. I am proud to say, though, that I fondly remember the Sapp boys, Jeremy Short, and Dustyn Grenen. Based on the Blessy Companys practice of naming their new vessels for their longterm employees, there may be numerous ones plying the waters with Holmes County family names emblazoned on them before too long.

Holmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris said she was happy for the turnout, but she wished there were more voters. We had a 43 percent turnout, which is a lot better then the rest of the state, Morris said. Looking back at 2008, I anticipate an even bigger turnout this year. In Holmes County, there are 11,271 registered voters. Of those, 3,920 are reg istered Republican, 6,368 are registered Democrat and 1,076 are nonpartisan. Of the registered voters, 4,845 voted, of which 1,827 were Republican, 2,897 Demo crat and 121 nonpartisan. It just shows that we have 43 per cent determining who goes on to the next election, Morris said, which is a shame because of how convenient voting has be come now. Morris was referring to the recent en couragement for residents to participate in early voting via mail, which once had been limited to the disabled and military overseas. Morris also said voters need to be pre pared this year because for the rst time in history there will be two voters ballots. Weve never had more than one bal lot in Holmes County before, Morris said. This is due to the fact that theres so many constitutional amendments on this years ballot. Theres got to be a lot of voter education between now and the November elections. Morris also cautioned voters to look at the ballot carefully because the state is arranging the ballots in unconventional ways. For instance, the alcohol referendum will be located last on the ballot, after the constitutional amendments, Morris said. The school board race will come after the court judges, then the constitutional amendments and then the referendum. We have no say as to how the ballot is ar ranged, thats all the states doing. the events fundraiser, the Possum Auction. Now were just trying to get back into shape for the General Election, he said, adding that campaigning was not unlike riding a bicycle. Theres a certain amount of muscle memory involved. He visited in Marianna and Chipley on his way to Bonifay on Thursday. Southerland said he is looking for ward to debating his opponent, and Congress is on August recess until af ter Labor Day. Truthfully, not much legislative work gets done between now and No vember, he said. Campaigning sucks all the air out of Washington. Southerland noted that Floridas redistricting from 25 to 27 Congressio nal districts means two new members of Congress will be elected this year, increasing the states presence in the capitol. Southerland said the presidential campaign has turned bad quickly this year. The American people lose when the campaign is not about issues, he said. On the international scene, there is more than enough to talk about look at effects of the Arab Spring movement in Egypt and Libya and the destabilization of Turkey, Southerland said. There is also still an American presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the 800-pound gorilla in the room that no one is talking about Mahmoud Ahmadinejads efforts at nuclear pro liferation in Iran. What is happening in that part of the world impacts American families, just as the economic instability in Eu rope affects American investments and provides challenges to American investors, Southerland said. Mean while fuel costs are creeping back up, and that affects every American family. On the national front, the national debt is $6 trillion, Southerland said, and the U.S. taxpayers are paying bil lions of dollars in interest each month. Imagine if it were a credit card and you were paying hundreds of dollars a month just in interest, he said. The biggest problem Southerland said he has with President Barack Obamas administration is the prolif eration of regulations. Regulations have gone insane, he said. When we stopped his legislative agenda, the president then turned to the departments and started enacting regulations. The boot of government is on the neck of the small business man, Southerland said. The top offenders include the DoddFrank Act, health care reform and the Environmental Protection Agency, he said. The Dodd-Frank banking regula tions were meant for Wall Street, but they have affected local banks, drying up capital small businesses need to ex pand and compete, Southerland said. Small businesses provide 80 percent of jobs in country, but now they do not have access to the capital small busi nesses need to expand and compete. The presidents health care reform will introduce regulations that, when they take effect in 2014, will be disas trous for small businesses, Souther land said. Meanwhile, the EPA is bigger than life, he said. Im not against stan dards, but holding Florida to a tougher water standard than surrounding states just wrong. Southerland said the EPA regula tions enacted during Obamas presi dency will decimate factories in this country. Southerland said he loves rural counties and enjoys visiting Holmes and Washington counties and looks forward to making new friends and establishing relationships with voters here. I serve on the committee on ag riculture, the committee on natural resources and the committee on transportation and infrastructure, Southerland said, and those commit tees can be important to rural Florida. Those are places where I can really make an impact on our region, and serving on the agricultural committee is a great honor. people of Holmes County, Corbin said.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Hooked on Outdoors Page A6 Wednesday, August 22, 2012 FWC: Leave fawns alone By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission This is the time of year when people are in the woods, taking a leisurely stroll or checking on their favorite hunting location. Its also when does are having their fawns, particularly in Northwest Florida, and there is the temptation by some to take these deer home and make pets out of them. This temptation is the strongest when people assume the baby deer is abandoned just because they dont see an adult nearby. More likely than not, the adult is out foraging and will return when no humans are nearby. Taking a fawn home is a bad idea on several fronts, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. First, its illegal to remove a deer from the wild to make a pet out of it, said FWC Investigator Jerry Shores. An individual needs a permit for personal possession and we simply dont issue those permits. Instead, we put those deer with licensed wildlife rehabilitation facilities and the deer are released back into the wild when its appropriate. Shores said people who attempt to raise deer at home often have no idea what the deers dietary needs are. Additionally, he said, deer raised as pets are commonly around other family pets, such as dogs. The pet deer doesnt associate the dog as danger but as soon as that deer encounters a neighbors dog, the deer gets injured or killed, he said. Even doe deer raised in captivity, as docile and beautiful as they are, can become dangerous. Shores said does will sometimes rear up on their back legs and ail away with their front legs, their sharp hooves able to cut or severely injure a child or adult. With buck deer, its even worse. There have been dozens and dozens of reports across the country of captive bucks injuring owners and bystanders. That is because bucks change as the rut kicks in during the fall and their level of testosterone increases. They become more aggressive and anyone who enters their pen or enclosure is subject to being injured or killed. Last year a local encounter shows just how unpredictable penraised deer can be. Shores said a husband, wife and 4-year-old daughter visited a high-fenced farm in Liberty County where a large pen-raised buck had been released. Without warning, the buck charged and knocked the child down but missed her with its antlers. The child had bumps and bruises but no serious injuries. The good news is that over the last several years weve seen fewer cases where people are taking fawns home, Shores said. I think most people understand that this is not a good idea. If you know for certain that a fawn has been orphaned, please call the Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888404-FWCC (3922). Hooked on kayak shing By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com It only took one. The rst time I caught a sh out of kayak, I was hooked, Capt. Linda Cavitt told the more than 100 people gathered Wednesday night for the Emerald Coast Saltwater Seminar at North Light Marina. After that sh took her for what she called a sleigh ride, she was on board for kayak shing. Cavitt, who is on the pro staff team for Sunjammers Watersports out of Panama City, joined red sh professional Sonny Granger in explaining the ins and outs of kayak shing. Cavitt has caught everything from sail sh to speckled trout aboard a kayak. Its very light and very manageable, she said of the Hobie Revolution 11 kayak she brought along to the seminar. She explained the most popular kayak for shing is one with pedals that leaves your hands free to sh. Plus its also good for trolling, she said, referring to the speed you can go by pedaling. Also the women like the pedals because they can do it with their legs, where they are usually stronger than in their upper body. The kayak is also easy to haul around. It can t in the back of a truck or on a rack on top of a vehicle, and you can launch it anywhere you have access to water, she said. So it gives you a ton of freedom to get to spots, Granger said. Cavitts kayak is equipped with storage, a sh nder, pedals, hatch for tackle, padded seat, and a crate mate with three extra rod holders. I was an angler rst, then a kayaker, she said, noting she had some painful and expensive mishaps early on. Now I tie everything down, she said. Although she says a kayak is very stable, they can sometimes ip in the surf. Like shing off any boat, she said, you want to practice safety rst. You want to be visible on the water, you want to be seen, she said. Cavitt has a ag on the back of her boat as well as a light. Plus kayakers should have a lifejacket and a noise-making device such as a whistle. She always carries a knife as well to cut shing line if needed. Another advantage of shing out of kayak is it allows the angler access to shallow water. You are able to get up among the sh because of the lack of noise, Granger said. Cavitt uses the kayak to sh in the gulf and bay, although she says she doesnt venture out much past 3 miles. Its amazing what people are catching, she said out of kayaks. She catches, redw snapper, grouper, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, mahi mahi and bonito all from the kayak. Inshore she pulls in redsh, trout and ounder. Cavitt says she nds the sh like most seasoned anglers. She looks for diving birds or bait pods. However, if its blowing more than 10 miles per hour, Im not going. As for tackle, she said the angler doesnt need anything huge, about a 7-foot rod and a Tyrnos reel with 40-pound Braid is good. The thing to remember is everything is more compact in a kayak. It can be challenging but rewarding, she said. Have you ever had the occasion to have really good luck on several shing trips and then you take along a friend and bam, you cant seem to catch another good day shing no matter how hard you try? These people are what are commonly called black cats. They are pure unadulterated bad luck. I never used to think of shing as good or bad luck, but that has changed as of late. I always noticed I had better shing when I went with someone who was a better sherman than me or should I say knew more ways to sh or tried different methods. I looked forward to shing with these guys realizing I would come away knowing a little more than when we left that morning. I have been besieged by a hoard of people who not always, but most of the time cause the sh not to bite. I know that sounds silly, but it is true. The Dog Doctor is the black cat of black cats. He started having shing troubles long before we rst went shing. He lost his touch shing for bream and it has gone downhill from bream to suckers and now hes working on speckled trout with great success. He started shing with me and he brought this contagious disease with him and now it has infected my boat and tackle. I always have a better time if I go by myself. Have you ever had someone who always is looking at his watch? Especially if the sh arent biting, they act as if they have a plane to catch. This makes me want to jump out of the boat. If you want to move you have to explain to them why. Most of the time it is just better to go by myself and if the sh dont bite I dont have to explain why to someone else. Another type of sherman I know everyone has taken with them is the guy that couldnt catch a sh if his life depended on it. He just sort of sits there while everyone is either catching sh or at least losing their bait. There usually are reasons for this, but they are so numerous I couldnt cover them all in a day. This type of person will not take any advice. They dont seem to be on the same page as everyone else. If someone else is beating me like a rented mule you can bet Im going to watch every move they make until I at least catch up in the number of sh caught. So if you need someone to take shing, I can help you out. I have more cat friends than the Humane Society. Some of them bring absolutely no tackle, preferring you to supply them and most of them have never brought a sandwich or a Coke for as long as I have known them. They are a good group of guys if you need some company, but dont expect to be eating sh for supper unless you use shrimp for bait and have some left over.

SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com A Section Page 7 Blue Devils aim for focus amid high expectations By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com BONIFAY Theres an easy way to make a football coach cringe. Tell them their team is the favorite, to win just about everything, and theyll recoil faster than a Slinky. This is the problem facing Holmes County coach Brad Johnson, if you could call it a problem, that is. Its as good as a problem to have as any, however, as he scans a roster that returns 17 starters from a District 3-1A championship team that was a win away from the state seminal. The whispers, which grow louder in August, suggest a potential Holmes County-Bratt Northview encounter late in the season for a spot in the state nal. Johnson chooses to quell those whispers for now, at least until they become shouts in the weeks ahead. Sitting here, looking at it right now, you think you have a pretty good chance to get back to the playoffs, Johnson said. You have a little success and want to build on it. We have a good shot, but I dont want to give too much bulletin board material. Holmes County nished 10-2 after falling to Chipley 27-6 in the regional nal. Johnson wouldnt give lofty predictions, but he did say the team circled the date when the teams are set for the Nov. 2 meeting this season. There is much reason for optimism, and it begins with the return of Kodi Russ at running back. The senior rushed for 948 yards, scored 18 touchdowns and was the workhorse for an offense that saw little opposition until Chipley. He again will be the main rusher in a potent offense. I dont know if you can expect any more; hes pretty danged good, Johnson said. We will rely on him like we have in the past, and he will step up and deliver like he has in the past. Johnson is hopeful a switch for Jacky Miles from running back to quarterback will add a new dimension to the offense and spruce up the passing game. Miles has experience at quarterback at Graceville as a sophomore, and he played running back during recovery from an arm injury as a junior transfer to Holmes County. Hes fully healthy this season and brings leadership following a stint at catcher on Holmes Countys state runner-up baseball team. Its big for us. Through the summer hes transitioned well to it, Johnson said of Miles, who will replace one of the few departures in Ethan Russ. Hes still a great run threat back there, too, and he can throw the ball. Joining the duo at the skill positions are a group of talented and experienced players. The list is led by senior Franklin Russ, who replaced Kodi Russ at running back during spring drills while the latter played for the Blue Devils baseball team. Franklin Russ played at wide receiver last year, and Johnson said the switch and the return of junior Ty Russ will add needed depth to spell Kodi Russ. Ty Russ and seniors Dustin Janas, Jordan Segers and Austin Burk comprise a group of wide receivers that have shown improvement. Ty Russ and Janas combined for 24 receptions and 460 yards last season. Holmes County lost only one offensive lineman, center Will Farmer. Sophomore Chase Forehand will take over at center after starting at right guard last season. Juniors Brit Bailey and Perry Lee are competing for the new right guard position. Seniors Garrett Gardner and Sam Wells return to anchor left guard and left tackle, respectively, and senior Zach Cooley is back at right tackle. Johnson said there is depth with young backups Hunter Parish, Ruben Martinez and Thomas Parish lling in as needed. Gardner, the teams leading returning tackler, will anchor the linebackers corps along with Segers, Forehand and possibly Miles, who could see time at the position as well as defensive back. Johnson has little doubt Gardner can perform even better this season to replace the output of the departed Tanner Bryant, who led the team with six sacks. Janas, Sam Wells, senior Tyler Wells and Chris Newton comprise the line. Miles, Burk, Ty Russ, Kodi Russ, Franklin Russ and senior Phil Agolio will work in a rotation at defensive back to give the Blue Devils versatility with size and speed. Holmes County limited opponents to 13 points per game last season. The Blue Devils scored almost 30 points a game and a statistical repeat, or expected bump in scoring, again will make it dif cult for rural opponents. Johnson continued to refrain from bold predictions but said the locker room has a different feel to it this season. Last year, the team ended a long playoff drought. He knows they see more on the horizon. The kids are red up, and theyre excited about the season, Johnson said. Theyre ready to go out and see what happens. Yellow Jackets hope for return to state playoffs By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com VERNON Have Hunter Dobbs, will travel. That was the case last year as Dobbs led Vernon to the state playoffs for the rst time since 2007. Hes spent considerable time at quarterback since his freshman year, but his insertion at running back gives the Yellow Jackets a player on whom they can focus the offense. Hes outstanding. I dont know what else you can say, Vernon head coach Ryan Boyd said. He hits the weight room and does everything hes supposed to do. Hes always been a leader ever since he got here. Hes played varsity since the day he stepped on campus. Hes always been a leader. Hes always been good to the younger kids. Hes helped out in any way possible. Dobbs led the Yellow Jackets to a District 2-1A title and the Class 1A postseason last fall. Although he has proven he can direct the offense from under center, Vernon has another player Dylan Kirk who has showcased his own ability at quarterback. Kirks presence has freed up Dobbs to be the lead tailback. He got about ve games in (at quarterback), plus the playoffs, Boyd said of Kirk. Hes kind of a gamer. Hes relaxed back there and makes good decisions, doesnt turn it over and gets the ball in athletes hands. Boyd said Vernon had 30 players turn out for the fall, an uptick from last year. He said the roster will be junior-heavy and features only four seniors, but he said the team is hungry to return to the playoffs and improve on a 4-7 nish. It gave them a little taste in the mouth, Boyd said. They seem to like it. Boyd is entering his second season as Vernons head coach, and he acknowledged that having a full year to his credit has made his job easier entering this season. He noted his familiarity with the teams personnel and players. That works the other way, too, of course. Vernons players have a much better grasp of Boyds expectations and those of his coaching staff. Everyone coming in knows what their role will be, Boyd said. Boyd, who said hell have several players competing on both sides of the line of scrimmage, said he has three returning starters on the offensive line. He is pleased with the four starters on the defensive line, though he warned that depth is a concern there. Vernon has a pair of safeties in the defensive back eld strong safety Cody Harmon and free safety Austin Brown who will highlight the defense. Boyd also mentioned senior Casey Boukard. Codys all over the eld defensively, Boyd said. Hes not a big guy, but hes not afraid to come up and hit you. Austin, hes a (6-foot-2) receiver who plays free safety for us. He covers a lot of ground in the middle of the eld. Hes good to have back there. Casey Boukard is a middle linebacker who did a good job last year. Boyd expects the district to be tough again with Graceville, Sneads, Cottondale and last years league runner-up, Wewahitchka, contending for playoff spots. He said the team got out to a slow start in 2011, losing three of its rst four games. The Yellow Jackets rebounded, however, to make a late push for the playoffs. They might follow a similar path this season, playing four of their rst ve games on the road. We had a lot of guys who hadnt gotten on the eld before and did a good job for us, Boyd said. There wasnt a whole lot of experience, but they got more as the year went on.

(AP) Jimmie Johnson looked as if he had already nished the hardest work. After starting at the back of the pack, he had moved up quickly, and when he passed Brad Keselowski for the lead on lap 191 of 200, his No. 48 Chevrolet seemed to be the superior car. Then Johnsons engine faltered with only six laps remaining. He lost the race and the NASCAR Sprint Cup points lead to Greg Bif e on Sunday. I got it turned around and was catching him, and then his engine failed, Bif e said. It was going to be a great race, no matter what. I felt like I could catch him, but well never know. Passing him might have been a different story. Bif e won the race at Michigan International Speedway, taking advantage when Johnson left the track because of engine trouble. Johnson started from the back because of an engine change, and he couldnt hold on at the end. He nished 27th. After Johnsons mishap, there was a caution for oil on the track. Bif e held off Keselowski by 0.416 seconds in the greenwhite-checkered nish. Bif e took over the points lead, while Johnson dropped from rst to fourth. Matt Kenseth moved up a spot to second despite a 17th-place showing. I know that a lot of people dont expect us to win the championship, and dont expect us to compete for the title, Bif e said. I dont care what they say or who they want to talk about, but we will be a factor when it comes down to Homestead. I promise you that. Kasey Kahne nished third in the 400mile race, followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Marcos Ambrose. It was the 12th victory for Roush Fenway Racing at MIS, breaking a tie with the Wood Brothers for the most wins at the track. Pole sitter Mark Martin was sailing along in the lead for most for the rst 65 laps before his race ended in scary fashion. Bobby Labonte went into a spin while Martin was coming up from behind, and Martin went sliding off toward pit road. His car crashed frighteningly into the end of a short, narrow barrier on the interior side of pit road. The side of Martins car was essentially impaled by the end of the wall, just in front of the left rear tire and dangerously close to the drivers seat. But in the smoky scene that followed, Martin was able to get out and walk away. I really feel that was a freak accident. Im not sure you can ever completely x something like that, Martin said. That was a pretty freak angle that I got it. Im not sure what you can do. It could have been really bad if I would have got into that hole a little deeper where it would have caught me in the door instead of the crush area back there. Johnson started from the back, and so did Earnhardt, who was using a backup car after a mishap in practice Saturday. The two Hendrick Motorsports teammates made a solid run of it, but it was Bif e and his No. 16 Ford that emerged at the end. Johnson did not speak to reporters afterward. He was trying to become the rst driver to reach four victories this season. Keselowski and Tony Stewart also have three, and drivers will earn bonus points in the Chase for the Sprint Cup for regularseason victories. The Chase starts next month.

Tyler Harrison,were awarded nalist for the 2012 Florida Sheriffs Association Deputy Sheriff of the Year Award. The award comes as a re ection of their dedication, sel essness and desire to protect our community and support their fellow colleagues. For several days leading up to Feb. 2, 2011, the Gritney community and the entire county had spent several restless nights as Law Enforcement of cers engaged in a multi-state search for a man believed to have murdered his parents. At 7:40 a.m. the Holmes County Communications Center received a report of a hunter who had been shot in a wooded area in the Gritney community of Holmes County. Several of cers responded to the call. Lt. Raley and Sgt. Harrison led a Florida Department of Corrections canine tracking team into the wooded area to search for the shooter who was later identi ed as murder suspect, Wade Williams. After coming under re in a heavily wooded area, Lt. Raley and Sgt. Harrison along with other DOC of cers were able to eliminate the threat and provide medical assistance to the wounded. They immediately began to attend to Col. Malloys wounds and provide CPR as they awaited a helicopter to evacuate him. Sadly, Col. Greg Malloy of the Florida Department of Corrections later died from the gunshot injuries he sustained in the exchange of gun re. Both of these men faced danger together to protect the citizens of Holmes County and their fellow of cers, said Sheriff Tim Brown. We are very fortunate to have them on our team and I feel they are very deserving of this award. Lewis and McDuf e to Wed Holmes County Deputies, Lt. Michael Raley and Sgt.

ELIZAB E TH MATTH E WS Monitor Technician and Unit Secretary Hudson, FL Real Results. Real Results. HIRED EmployFlorida.com 1-866-FLA-2345 THG-11909 Many dog owners work hard to make their pets comfortable and happy, so it can be frustrating when a dog is constantly itching and distressed. Dr. Adam Patterson, clinical assistant professor and Chief of Dermatology at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Small Animal Clinic, explained how some perpetually itchy dogs may suffer from food allergies. Food allergies in dogs present themselves quite differently than food allergies in humans, Patterson said. For instance a person who is allergic to shell sh may experience throat swelling and a possibly critical or fatal reaction, but in dogs the allergy is expressed through the skin and seen most often as itch. Dogs who itch, lick, chew, rub, bite, and scratch themselves year round, typically around the face, ears, armpits, groin, paws, and around the anus may be showing signs of a food allergy. Since itchy are factors have an additive effect, it is important to eliminate other possible causes of itching. First, it is necessary to eliminate any possibility that parasites, particularly eas, are causing the dog to itch. Likewise, the veterinarian should also look for signs of skin infections (bacteria and/or yeast). Secondly, the veterinarian will also determine if environmental factors are causing itchy skin. Dogs with year-round itch, who eat roughly the same diet yearlong, are frequently candidates for a food allergy diagnosis. There isnt a conclusive clinical skin or blood (serum) test to see whether a dog has a food allergy, Patterson said. Its like ipping a coin to determine whether the test is a true or false positive. Because of this, we have to base our diagnosis on the dogs history, clinical signs of skin disease, and response to a food trial. The test for food allergies in dogs simply isnt conclusive at this time, but we hope some of our research will lead to an effective test. To diagnose a dog with food allergy, the rst thing to do is put the patient on an elimination diet, or an exclusive novel protein diet. This ends up being a diet with individual ingredients to which the dog has rarely ever consumed before. Usually, the diet is commercially prepared and fed for a minimum of eight weeks. The goal is to determine if food is a component of the itching. Typically dogs are allergic to proteins they are exposed to for extended periods of time. In the United States, dogs are generally allergic to beef, chicken, and egg protein. Patterson explained that most elimination diets replace beef, chicken, and egg based foods with an exotic meat protein like venison, duck, kangaroo, or vegetable-based. After eight weeks, the patient is challenged by returning to the original diet. If the dogs symptoms (itch) improved during the eight weeks, then return when the dogs original diet is replaced, then a food allergy is con rmed. Patients with food allergies typically relapse within two weeks of returning to the original diet, Patterson said. It is important during the elimination diet to remove any avored medicines or supplements, table scraps, typical treats, rawhides, and pill pockets from the animals diet so the test isnt compromised. If a commercially prepared novel protein diet is not suf cient, a prescription hydrolyzed diet may be necessary. This food is only available by prescription from a veterinarian. It helps dogs with food allergies by breaking down the protein into small enough fragments that the immune system cannot recognize it, and, therefore, does not induce a skin reaction. Another option for dogs with food allergies is a limited ingredient home-cooked diet. Patterson recommends only doing this under close supervision of a veterinarian. While any breed is susceptible to food allergies, Patterson sees many poodles, boxers, weimaraner, dachshunds, chocolate labs, and German shepherds with food allergies. He has also noticed dogs with German lineages tend to be more susceptible to food allergies. Generally dogs diagnosed with food allergies can remain on commercially prepared elimination diets for life without complications. As with any skin disease, there really isnt a cure, Patterson said. Instead, proper management of the disease can keep dogs happy and healthy lifelong.

President Matyskiels goal for F.S.C.A.R. is to raise $13,000.00 to become a bronze sponsor of the 2013 Tampa Bay National Veterans Wheelchair Games. Blue Springs Society members and senior leaders are excited about attending the state seminar in Tampa in Sept., to learn more about the games and to actually experience the challenge of competing in a wheelchair. Some members hope to have a chance to compete in the sport of motorized wheelchair racing while at the seminar. The Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Department of Veterans Affairs present the National Veterans Wheelchair Games each year with additional support from a variety of sponsors. Over 600 veteran wheelchair athletes are introduced to and compete in 17 adaptive sporting events as a form of rehabilitative therapy to foster better physical, mental and social health to improve their quality of life. The games serve as a rehabilitation program open to military service veterans who use wheelchairs for sports competition due to spinal cord injuries, certain neurological conditions, amputations or other mobility impairments. The games bene t the mind, body and spirit of returning soldiers who are faced with a brand new challenge in life. To learn more go to National Veterans Wheelchair Games on the Internet.

Play Playfulness is integral to our sense of being alive, of being engaged and focused and yet responsive to whatever happens. When we are at play we are fully engaged in something. There is reciprocity in play whereby when we play the game, the game is also playing us. We are taken up into the game and swept along as we play, as in life. Likewise, when someone plays a musical instrument there is a sense that they play the instrument while the instrument plays them; good musicians become one with their instruments. There is also an element of chance in play. We cant predict the outcome at the outset of play and random things tend to happen in play. Some times the random or errant blue note in music is just right. It is interesting to note that one of our synonyms for play is recreation. Are we somehow re-creating when we play? Was God playing when he created the universe? Is the uni verse fully created even now or is it still unfolding? Perhaps the universe is the continual unfolding of a divine cosmic game. Whether we think of existence as a game of chance where anything might happen, or a beautiful melody being played by a master mu sician, there is certainly something playful at work in the Cosmos.

Snyder I must say I do not get very much help on keeping things simple, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night, and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the bath and body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruity-tooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I should dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone? I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is, and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went, they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

B8| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, August 22, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By DIANE DIRESTAMonster Contributing Writer You might look good on paper or in your interview suit, but if you are looking to nail your big interview, looks are not everything. How you sound often is more important. But many job seekers let careless speech habits sink their chances of landing that plum job. Here are six common language mistakes and how to keep them from sabotaging your interview:1. NonwordsFiller words such as um,Ž ah,Ž you know,Ž OKŽ or likeŽ tell the interviewer you are not prepared and make you sound like a Valley Girl (or Boy). A better strategy is to think before you speak, taking pauses and breaths when you lose your train of thought. Everybody utters an occasional um,Ž but dont let it start every sentence.2. Up-talkA singsong or rising inflection at the end of every sentence creates a tentative impression and makes it sound as though you are asking a question instead of making a definitive statement. You need to speak with conviction when selling yourself in an interview. Bring your intonation down when ending a sentence to avoid talking up.3. Grammatical errorsThe interviewer might question your education when you use incorrect grammar or slang. Expressions such as aintŽ she dont,Ž me and my friendŽ and so I goes to himŽ are not appropriate. Be sure you speak in complete sentences and that tenses agree. The interview is not the venue for regional expressions or informality.4. Sloppy speechSlurring words together or dropping their endings impairs the clarity of your message. To avoid slurring and increase understanding, speak slowly during an interview. Make a list of commonly mispronounced words, and practice saying them into a tape recorder before the interview. Some common incorrect pronunciations include aksŽ for ask,Ž ath-a-leteŽ for athlete,Ž wifŽ for withŽ and dreeŽ for three.Ž5. Speed talkingWhile everybody is a bit anxious during an interview, you do not want your information to fly by like a speeding bullet. A rapid speaking rate is difficult to follow, and speed talkers are seen as nervous. Slow down your racing heart by doing some breathing exercises before the interview. To avoid rushing, listen to the question, and then count two beats in your head before answering. When you finish a sentence, count two beats again before continuing. Dont be afraid of silence. Pausing is an effective communication technique. The interviewer needs a few seconds to process what you just said anyway.6. Weak speakWimpy words modify or water down your conviction and in the end your position. When you pepper a conversation with hopefully,Ž perhaps,Ž I feel,Ž kind ofŽ and sort of,Ž the message you convey is a lack of confidence. Use power words such as Im confident that,Ž my track record shows,Ž I take the position that,Ž I recommendŽ or my goal is.Ž The language you use gives the listener an impression about your level of confidence and conviction.The bottom lineYou do not have to study elocution to speak well. Simply slow down, take time to pronounce all the syllables and leave slang at home. Companies want job candidates who are well-spoken and articulate, and recruiters will not represent a job candidate if they do not match the clients profile. According to Lori Zelman, vice president of human resources at Strategic Workforce Solutions in New York City, The people most highly sought after are the ones who are succinct in the explanation of their work experience.Ž6 speech habits which sabotage Featured Jobs DFW EOE, & a smoke free campus … Competitive Salary & Bene“ts … RNS, MED/SURG All shifts, experience preferred.

Weve got a bid outlined and ready to go, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. It will give them three weeks to set up a bid and (be) ready for board review by the rst board meeting in September. The board also approved a resolution stating they approved of applying for the Florida Boating Improvement Program to build a boat ramp on the west end of the Choctawhatchee River off U.S. 90. The program is offered through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The water levels are looking good now, but when they go down, theres nowhere to put your boat in anywhere in Holmes County, Commissioner Jim King said. This will be a valuable asset to the residents in Holmes County. In other business, Goodman told the board an easement was written up and ready for signing in regard to a resident who was willing donate land off Tri-County Road to round off and widen a dangerous curve next to his property. County Engineer Cliff Knauer said they had met with the owner and began the process but had been delayed because of some inconsistencies in the surveys. When we originally went out there it looked like he was donating over 1,800 square feet of land, but when we got to digging through the surveys, we found most of that land already belonged to the county and the portion hed be donating was actually not that big, Knauer said. Its a bad way to nd out, but at least we now know what were working with. Chairman Monty Merchant asked if the curve was all that dangerous, saying he had been informed extensive work would need to be done to smooth the curve and widen the road, such as cutting down trees and leveling the large slope. Knauer said the landowner often had to pull vehicles out of the ditch because the road wasnt wide enough to allow people to pass properly at that corner. Brown overtakes Lee in sheriff race Southerland looks to NovemberBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland was in Northwest Florida last week, making friends and exing his campaign muscles now that the Primary Election is a thing of the past. Southerland, a Republican, represents the 2nd Congressional District, which now includes Washington and Holmes counties as a result of redistricting. A resident of Panama City, Southerland faces Democrat challenger Al Lawson on Nov. 6. Southerland had no GOP challengers in last weeks primary. It was hard work, preventing a primary, Southerland joked. But I did spend election night with supporters at an election night rally.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, August 22, 2012 He also said multiple school bus drivers had complained the road was too narrow, the curve was too sharp to properly turn a bus and that it could become a possible danger because it created a large blind spot for drivers. The board agreed to allow Knauer to speak with the owner about signing the easement so the county could get started as soon as possible. The board also approved of bidding out for janitorial services, which last was bid in November 2008 and was due again. Weve had no complaints about our current services, Commissioner Phillip Music said. Theyve done an excellent job. Goodman said it was possible the county will choose to keep its current services but that it was good to put certain services out for bid every so many years to ensure competitive prices and services. The board agreed to allow 911 Dispatch Director Clint Erickson to go to Washington County to help train the new 911 dispatch director during his off time. I will be training her on my personal time, and if there should be a call in Holmes County my priority and my obligation is here in Holmes County, Erickson said. Its just that the new director worked very little with the old one, and when the old one retired he didnt train her any. He just left. Goodman said it was allowed through Ericksons contract because it was viewed like having a second job. Erickson said he made sure the help wouldnt interfere with his usual work hours but that he would be taking three vacation days over the course of the next four months to help train the new director. County Commissioner Kenneth Williams said he thoroughly disagreed with Ericksons decision and that his time would be better spent in Holmes County. You need to re-evaluate how youre spending your time, Williams said. Im not at all pleased with the idea that youd be closing your doors to the residents of Holmes County to help another county. Because Erickson is the only member in his department, the department has to close whenever Erickson is away. Erickson said the department would have to close when he took his regular vacation time anyway, which was his to do with however he seen t; however, he said if there was any objection from the board, he would decline the assistance immediately. Youre my bosses, and this is my priority job, Erickson said. If you dont want me doing this on my free time, just let me know and I wont do it. Merchant said the board was ne with what he did with his free time as long as it didnt interfere with his regular duties and he was well prepared to address the needs of the residents of Holmes County while he was away. The board and Erickson agreed to those standards. The board approved of the Emergency Generator Application, which they had applied for to purchase a generator for the courthouse shortly before the meeting on April 25. Its a big enough generator to provide for the entire courthouse no problem, Williams said at the meeting in April. The match is between $2,000 and $4,000 for a $29,000 generator with the possibility for an in-kind match for labor. We needed to apply for the grant that day, so it seemed like a no-brainer. The board agreed with Williams. The required match announced at the recent meeting is $5,000 with an in-kind match for labor provided by the county, which included pouring the concrete slab and fencing around the generator. The board approved of the city of Bonifays request to waive fees for the county to carry 100 tires out to the recycling center. Were waiving it once in efforts to help reduce the mosquito problem weve been having, King said. The board approved signing a letter for TriCounty Airport Authority proclaiming to be a nonprofit organization. The next scheduled meeting is set for 6 p.m. Aug. 28.

By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The July 26 decision by Judge David Maloney that Bay County failed to demonstrate it is entitled to draw water from a well eld near the Washington County border is a ruling that will affect the county for generations, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. I cant tell you how huge a win this was for us, Goodman told the Washington County Board of Commissioners on Thursday. There arent many cases where I get tickled, but this was exciting. Goodman said millions of dollars were spent in litigation costs in the course of the lawsuit. I went to bed that night and slept with a smile, Goodman said. On July 26. Judge Maloney, in a 95-page ruling on evidence presented during several days of hearings last fall, recommended the Northwest Florida Water Management District deny Bay County a permit to drill wells that opponents said would threaten the lakes of Sand Hills. The proposed wells have been controversial since Bay County applied for a permit to drill them in March 2010. Bay County initially wanted a permit to draw an average 10 million gallons of water per day later decreased to 5 million gallons per day from the Floridan Aquifer for 20 years. Washington County and The Knight Trust, which owns a considerable amount of land on both sides of the county line, appealed to the Division of Administrative Hearings. Maloney wrote that Bay County and the district would need to establish three things for the permit to be granted: that there was a need for the water in Bay County, that the drawdown of water wouldnt impact the environment and that it was in the public interest to allow Bay County to take the water. Both parties hired numerous experts who testi ed to the environmental impact; Maloney found the Knight Trusts experts and evidence more convincing. According to the ruling, Bay County and the district couldnt establish with the evidence they presented that Bay County needed the water because the county already has a water supply sufcient to meet the demands of the population. The plan was for the well eld to serve as a backup water supply in the event the Deer Point Lake reservoir, Bay Countys current water source, was contaminated. Maloney also decided taking the water would not be in the public interest, in part because the permit didnt restrict emergency withdrawals to an amount necessary for essential use. The failure to show what the impacts will be to these natural systems of extraordinary ecological and environmental quality is weighty when balanced against a need that doesnt exist and that may never arise Maloney wrote. Kudos to the board for ghting this and taking a stance to protect the citizens of Washington County, Goodman said. Future generations of Washington County residents will be protected, not just our children but our grandchildren. Washington attorney: Water lawsuit win hugeBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Board of County Commissioners voted on Thursday to abandon Powerline Road, following up on a residents request made at the July 19 board meeting. The vote to close the road was 3-1 with Commissioners Todd Abbott, Joel Pate and Hulan Carter voting for and Commissioner Charles Brock voting against. Commissioner Donnie Strickland was absent. On July 19, Susan Sanders requested the county provide a prescriptive easement and cut short Powerline Road, which runs into the Spring Ridge subdivision and through a number of platted lots there. Sanders said no one actually lives on the road, which takes up about a half acre of her property. She has been living on the property for three years and said she would like to see the road closed. The money spent on grading that road is money spent on a shortcut which is used by very few people, Sanders said. Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz said at the July meeting that the road cuts through 11 lots in Spring Ridge, making them non-conforming lots. Sanders asked that the road be terminated on her property and offered to give the county the right-ofway to put a cul-de-sac at the end of the road per the countys requirements. Goodman said Spring Ridges developers put the value of each lot at $15,000, meaning the road affects $165,000 worth of property. What it amounts to is a compensionable taking, Goodman said. If you choose not to abandon Powerline Road, we will be looking at litigation. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said the road had been under county maintenance since the 1990s and was a county road; therefore the county could close the road if the board chose to do so. Commissioners vote to close Powerline Road

Dear Editor, I have not written this article in a t of anger, though I could have. I have taken months to try to get all the facts, and the enclosed is the result. Everyone needs a chance to voice their opinion, but no one seems to know anything. My opinion is that someone does but is keeping quiet. Why? Does being quiet make destroying graves more acceptable? No. I am a greatgrandmother who was born and raised in Holmes County. I have lived in DeFuniak Springs in the past and now reside in the woods of Geneva County, Ala. For more than a decade I have enjoyed book signings and speaking dates involving many senior groups. My fth book was published when I was 80. I am a 1947 graduate of Ponce de Leon High School and earned an A.A. degree in journalism when the youngest of ve was in kindergarten. I am presently doing online classes for a B.A. in biblical studies; it will help to keep my mind active and give me a challenge. I havent learned how to twiddle my thumbs and dont intend to learn. Thank you for printing the enclosed information. People need to know. Sincerely,Lura Spears Zerick(The following is the article that was included with the letter)Is nothing sacred anymore?I was taught not to walk on the top of a grave in the cemetery, so all these years I walked around any a grave whenever I was visiting a cemetery. Time does change almost everything, apparently. Now, if you want a loved one buried in a large family plot, simply destroy those gravesites that might be in the way and go ahead, bury your loved ones there. Those huge spaces werent empty of graves even when I was growing up. The point is that many of the families of those who were buried there are now dead and buried somewhere else. Since so many old timers are gone, who is to know and/or complain? Though I have been a word person over 45 years, there are no words to describe my pain and anger at being unable to nd the graves of two infant sons who were stillborn and buried in the Leonia Cemetery in Holmes County. An older sister and four baby girls were also buried there. She and her husband had the RH Factor, which was fatal to babies many years ago. My rst baby (1948) was buried on the left of one of her babies grave. None of these graves can be found today. During those days, small dishes (such as colored saucers) were placed on top of the ground to indicate that it was the grave of an infant. At that time people understood what those dishes meant. Few families had the money to place a name marker on the grave. My second baby, buried in 1961, did have a name marker, but that is gone too. I visited that grave many times; I know where it was. I have encountered all kinds of people, and as I get closer to 82, I am appalled at the things many will do all under the heading of greed or sel shness, the worst types of cancer. My mama told me as I was growing up, Honey, when you are nice to people, they will be nice to you. Sorry to tell you this, Mama, but that is not true. You also used to say, it takes all kinds and Im glad you are not here to see what all kinds have come out of the woodwork; you probably would not believe what you see. Sometimes I have that same problem; I dont understand why and how people can do the things they do. I have been unable to nd anything resembling a map of the cemetery. Doesnt it make sense to keep a record of the name, location and date of a burial? No one seems to know anything about the cemetery. The Pastor of Leonia Baptist Church told me that they didnt own the cemetery any longer, but he could not tell me who owns it now. He was to call me back in a few days but has not called. The church secretary said that the church has no papers concerning who is buried there, or when they were buried. I went to the courthouse in Bonifay to learn who owns the cemetery but did not get a satisfactory answer. No one knows anything. I do not want to sue anyone but only to share the fact that graves are being destroyed. I had been told that some papers regarding the cemetery were at the Holmes County Library. I learned nothing new there, only a reminder that my infants, not my sisters infants, were even listed as being buried there. I had already learned that by going online. So who do you contact if you want to bury a loved one in the Leonia Cemetery? I realize that someone has started a new cemetery. Who is in charge here? Are they keeping any records of the new cemetery? Will they stand up? I dont know if destroying a grave is a crime, but it should be. The fact is that seldom are there people around who can witness who does what. What do they do with the name markers, just throw them in the trash? Take the evidence with them to throw away later? I checked with the funeral home that handled the funeral of the stillborn baby who was born in January 1961. They had told me on the phone that they also added an approximate location of the grave. When I called again for more information, I was told they didnt keep records that long. So nobody knows anything, but I know something. Whoever has loved ones buried at the Leonia Cemetery, you need to go and check that their graves are still there. If a huge family needs a big family plot, the graves of your loved ones might be destroyed to make that possible. When a loved one passes, one or two members of that family go with someone to the cemetery to show where that person is to be buried. There must be space available; you dont simply destroy graves that might be where you want your loves on buried. Doesnt that make sense or has common sense disappeared? I am not an angry person, but I am angry that anyone would destroy my babies graves or anyones graves. That is wrong and evil. Family plots are nice but there must be empty spaces for this to be possible. I remember that cemetery from the late 1930s and 1940s, before the school building burned. Those huge family plots have not been there that long. I dont know who is responsible for this terrible deed, but I know the one who knows all about it. I imagine few are aware of this terrible destruction, but in my opinion, they need to be informed, and now some of them are. I can be reached at lzerick@aol.com if anyone has questions or answers.Wednesday, August 22, 2012This story came to me via North Carolina when a cousin, Lillian Peters Pittman, who grew up here, sent it to Perrys Prattle and he thought since it was a Holmes County story, I should write it. Lillian is the daughter of the late Med Peters of Bonifay. She is much younger than I and the thing I remember about her was that she would accompany her grandmother, my grandfathers sister Betty Peters, when they would come to visit my parents in the summers so that they could pick black berries. I learned how to prevent getting red bugs (chiggers) when going into the woods. Aunt Betty and the children always sprinkled owers of sulfur in their shoes and around the waistband of their clothes. They moved to North Carolina while the children were all in school, but Lillian and Linda Bradshaw Sapp have remained in touch all these years. I am indebted to Linda Sapp for some of the information in the story. Blessey Marine Services, Inc. and Raymond & Associates, LLC held a ceremony on July 17, 2012, to christen their latest vessel, the M/V Vincent W. Sapp. The Vincent Sapp honors a 17year employee of the Blessey Towing Company, Vincent W. Sapp, 37, who grew up here and graduated from Holmes County High School in 1993. He began his career with Blessy Marine in 1995 as a deck hand on the M/V Laura Ann Blessy. He is now the pilot aboard the M/V Steve Scalise. The company has experienced tremendous growth in the intervening years and have continued to increase their eet. Recognizing that the companys success is largely due to the dedication of its employees, a plan was put into place to honor those employees by naming newly added vessels for the employee with the most seniority. The christening ceremony took place in the New Orleans harbor and a reception was held in River, Port, and Starboard Rooms of the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans. Walter Blessy, owner, praised Sapp for his ne character and his dedicated service on our nations waterways. Vincent was presented a Bible by Father Kurt Young and a ships clock by Mr. Blessy. In Sapps remarks, he expressed his shock at receiving such an honor, but gratitude and pride were evident as he broke the bottle of Champaign on the ship carrying his name. His daughter, eight-year-old Amiya, assisted and fouryear-old son Kylan watched. In attendance, also, were his parents Henry Tillman and Linda (Bradshaw) Sapp, brother Jayon and wife Tiffany, and daughter Bridgett. Aunt Helen and her husband Bob Moss and children from Texas were also there. Other Holmes Countians who work for the Blessey Company in attendance were Jeremy and Charity Short, David and Donna Mock who works on the Vincent, and Dustyn Grinen, Director of Operations for the company. The Vincent is a standard 88-by-35-foot tow boat capable of moving two 300-foot vessels along the Mississippi River and the coastal harbors of the New Orleans area. Vincent Sapp is the Pilot of a similar boat while his older brother, Jayon is Captain of another. Jayon, however, joined the Blessy company later than did his younger brother, Vinnie. When I was teaching 7th and 8th graders at Bonifay Middle School I never dreamed one of them would have a ship named for them. I am proud to say, though, that I fondly remember the Sapp boys, Jeremy Short, and Dustyn Grenen. Based on the Blessy Companys practice of naming their new vessels for their longterm employees, there may be numerous ones plying the waters with Holmes County family names emblazoned on them before too long.HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Holmes Countys Vincent Sapp has tow boat named for him HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

Holmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris said she was happy for the turnout, but she wished there were more voters. We had a 43 percent turnout, which is a lot better then the rest of the state, Morris said. Looking back at 2008, I anticipate an even bigger turnout this year. In Holmes County, there are 11,271 registered voters. Of those, 3,920 are registered Republican, 6,368 are registered Democrat and 1,076 are nonpartisan. Of the registered voters, 4,845 voted, of which 1,827 were Republican, 2,897 Democrat and 121 nonpartisan. It just shows that we have 43 percent determining who goes on to the next election, Morris said, which is a shame because of how convenient voting has become now. Morris was referring to the recent encouragement for residents to participate in early voting via mail, which once had been limited to the disabled and military overseas. Morris also said voters need to be prepared this year because for the rst time in history there will be two voters ballots. Weve never had more than one ballot in Holmes County before, Morris said. This is due to the fact that theres so many constitutional amendments on this years ballot. Theres got to be a lot of voter education between now and the November elections. Morris also cautioned voters to look at the ballot carefully because the state is arranging the ballots in unconventional ways. For instance, the alcohol referendum will be located last on the ballot, after the constitutional amendments, Morris said. The school board race will come after the court judges, then the constitutional amendments and then the referendum. We have no say as to how the ballot is arranged, thats all the states doing. the events fundraiser, the Possum Auction. Now were just trying to get back into shape for the General Election, he said, adding that campaigning was not unlike riding a bicycle. Theres a certain amount of muscle memory involved. He visited in Marianna and Chipley on his way to Bonifay on Thursday. Southerland said he is looking forward to debating his opponent, and Congress is on August recess until after Labor Day. Truthfully, not much legislative work gets done between now and November, he said. Campaigning sucks all the air out of Washington. Southerland noted that Floridas redistricting from 25 to 27 Congressional districts means two new members of Congress will be elected this year, increasing the states presence in the capitol. Southerland said the presidential campaign has turned bad quickly this year. The American people lose when the campaign is not about issues, he said. On the international scene, there is more than enough to talk about look at effects of the Arab Spring movement in Egypt and Libya and the destabilization of Turkey, Southerland said. There is also still an American presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the 800-pound gorilla in the room that no one is talking about Mahmoud Ahmadinejads efforts at nuclear proliferation in Iran. What is happening in that part of the world impacts American families, just as the economic instability in Europe affects American investments and provides challenges to American investors, Southerland said. Meanwhile fuel costs are creeping back up, and that affects every American family. On the national front, the national debt is $6 trillion, Southerland said, and the U.S. taxpayers are paying billions of dollars in interest each month. Imagine if it were a credit card and you were paying hundreds of dollars a month just in interest, he said. The biggest problem Southerland said he has with President Barack Obamas administration is the proliferation of regulations. Regulations have gone insane, he said. When we stopped his legislative agenda, the president then turned to the departments and started enacting regulations. The boot of government is on the neck of the small business man, Southerland said. The top offenders include the DoddFrank Act, health care reform and the Environmental Protection Agency, he said. The Dodd-Frank banking regulations were meant for Wall Street, but they have affected local banks, drying up capital small businesses need to expand and compete, Southerland said. Small businesses provide 80 percent of jobs in country, but now they do not have access to the capital small businesses need to expand and compete. The presidents health care reform will introduce regulations that, when they take effect in 2014, will be disastrous for small businesses, Southerland said. Meanwhile, the EPA is bigger than life, he said. Im not against standards, but holding Florida to a tougher water standard than surrounding states just wrong. Southerland said the EPA regulations enacted during Obamas presidency will decimate factories in this country. Southerland said he loves rural counties and enjoys visiting Holmes and Washington counties and looks forward to making new friends and establishing relationships with voters here. I serve on the committee on agriculture, the committee on natural resources and the committee on transportation and infrastructure, Southerland said, and those committees can be important to rural Florida.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Hooked on OutdoorsPage A6 Wednesday, August 22, 2012 FWC: Leave fawns aloneBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission This is the time of year when people are in the woods, taking a leisurely stroll or checking on their favorite hunting location. Its also when does are having their fawns, particularly in Northwest Florida, and there is the temptation by some to take these deer home and make pets out of them. This temptation is the strongest when people assume the baby deer is abandoned just because they dont see an adult nearby. More likely than not, the adult is out foraging and will return when no humans are nearby. Taking a fawn home is a bad idea on several fronts, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. First, its illegal to remove a deer from the wild to make a pet out of it, said FWC Investigator Jerry Shores. An individual needs a permit for personal possession and we simply dont issue those permits. Instead, we put those deer with licensed wildlife rehabilitation facilities and the deer are released back into the wild when its appropriate. Shores said people who attempt to raise deer at home often have no idea what the deers dietary needs are. Additionally, he said, deer raised as pets are commonly around other family pets, such as dogs. The pet deer doesnt associate the dog as danger but as soon as that deer encounters a neighbors dog, the deer gets injured or killed, he said. Even doe deer raised in captivity, as docile and beautiful as they are, can become dangerous. Shores said does will sometimes rear up on their back legs and ail away with their front legs, their sharp hooves able to cut or severely injure a child or adult. With buck deer, its even worse. There have been dozens and dozens of reports across the country of captive bucks injuring owners and bystanders. That is because bucks change as the rut kicks in during the fall and their level of testosterone increases. They become more aggressive and anyone who enters their pen or enclosure is subject to being injured or killed. Last year a local encounter shows just how unpredictable penraised deer can be. Shores said a husband, wife and 4-year-old daughter visited a high-fenced farm in Liberty County where a large pen-raised buck had been released. Without warning, the buck charged and knocked the child down but missed her with its antlers. The child had bumps and bruises but no serious injuries. The good news is that over the last several years weve seen fewer cases where people are taking fawns home, Shores said. I think most people understand that this is not a good idea. If you know for certain that a fawn has been orphaned, please call the Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888404-FWCC (3922). Hooked on kayak shingBy TINA HARBUCK654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com It only took one. The rst time I caught a sh out of kayak, I was hooked, Capt. Linda Cavitt told the more than 100 people gathered Wednesday night for the Emerald Coast Saltwater Seminar at North Light Marina. After that sh took her for what she called a sleigh ride, she was on board for kayak shing. Cavitt, who is on the pro staff team for Sunjammers Watersports out of Panama City, joined red sh professional Sonny Granger in explaining the ins and outs of kayak shing. Cavitt has caught everything from sail sh to speckled trout aboard a kayak. Its very light and very manageable, she said of the Hobie Revolution 11 kayak she brought along to the seminar. She explained the most popular kayak for shing is one with pedals that leaves your hands free to sh. Plus its also good for trolling, she said, referring to the speed you can go by pedaling. Also the women like the pedals because they can do it with their legs, where they are usually stronger than in their upper body. The kayak is also easy to haul around. It can t in the back of a truck or on a rack on top of a vehicle, and you can launch it anywhere you have access to water, she said. So it gives you a ton of freedom to get to spots, Granger said. Cavitts kayak is equipped with storage, a sh nder, pedals, hatch for tackle, padded seat, and a crate mate with three extra rod holders. I was an angler rst, then a kayaker, she said, noting she had some painful and expensive mishaps early on. Now I tie everything down, she said. Although she says a kayak is very stable, they can sometimes ip in the surf. Like shing off any boat, she said, you want to practice safety rst. You want to be visible on the water, you want to be seen, she said. Cavitt has a ag on the back of her boat as well as a light. Plus kayakers should have a lifejacket and a noise-making device such as a whistle. She always carries a knife as well to cut shing line if needed. Another advantage of shing out of kayak is it allows the angler access to shallow water. You are able to get up among the sh because of the lack of noise, Granger said. Cavitt uses the kayak to sh in the gulf and bay, although she says she doesnt venture out much past 3 miles. Its amazing what people are catching, she said out of kayaks. She catches, redw snapper, grouper, king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, mahi mahi and bonito all from the kayak. Inshore she pulls in redsh, trout and ounder. Cavitt says she nds the sh like most seasoned anglers. She looks for diving birds or bait pods. However, if its blowing more than 10 miles per hour, Im not going. As for tackle, she said the angler doesnt need anything huge, about a 7-foot rod and a Tyrnos reel with 40-pound Braid is good. The thing to remember is everything is more compact in a kayak. It can be challenging but rewarding, she said. Have you ever had the occasion to have really good luck on several shing trips and then you take along a friend and bam, you cant seem to catch another good day shing no matter how hard you try? These people are what are commonly called black cats. They are pure unadulterated bad luck. I never used to think of shing as good or bad luck, but that has changed as of late. I always noticed I had better shing when I went with someone who was a better sherman than me or should I say knew more ways to sh or tried different methods. I looked forward to shing with these guys realizing I would come away knowing a little more than when we left that morning. I have been besieged by a hoard of people who not always, but most of the time cause the sh not to bite. I know that sounds silly, but it is true. The Dog Doctor is the black cat of black cats. He started having shing troubles long before we rst went shing. He lost his touch shing for bream and it has gone downhill from bream to suckers and now hes working on speckled trout with great success. He started shing with me and he brought this contagious disease with him and now it has infected my boat and tackle. I always have a better time if I go by myself. Have you ever had someone who always is looking at his watch? Especially if the sh arent biting, they act as if they have a plane to catch. This makes me want to jump out of the boat. If you want to move you have to explain to them why. Most of the time it is just better to go by myself and if the sh dont bite I dont have to explain why to someone else. Another type of sherman I know everyone has taken with them is the guy that couldnt catch a sh if his life depended on it. He just sort of sits there while everyone is either catching sh or at least losing their bait. There usually are reasons for this, but they are so numerous I couldnt cover them all in a day. This type of person will not take any advice. They dont seem to be on the same page as everyone else. If someone else is beating me like a rented mule you can bet Im going to watch every move they make until I at least catch up in the number of sh caught. So if you need someone to take shing, I can help you out. I have more cat friends than the Humane Society. Some of them bring absolutely no tackle, preferring you to supply them and most of them have never brought a sandwich or a Coke for as long as I have known them. They are a good group of guys if you need some company, but dont expect to be eating sh for supper unless you use shrimp for bait and have some left over.

SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com ASectionPage 7Blue Devils aim for focus amid high expectationsBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com BONIFAY Theres an easy way to make a football coach cringe. Tell them their team is the favorite, to win just about everything, and theyll recoil faster than a Slinky. This is the problem facing Holmes County coach Brad Johnson, if you could call it a problem, that is. Its as good as a problem to have as any, however, as he scans a roster that returns 17 starters from a District 3-1A championship team that was a win away from the state seminal. The whispers, which grow louder in August, suggest a potential Holmes County-Bratt Northview encounter late in the season for a spot in the state nal. Johnson chooses to quell those whispers for now, at least until they become shouts in the weeks ahead. Sitting here, looking at it right now, you think you have a pretty good chance to get back to the playoffs, Johnson said. You have a little success and want to build on it. We have a good shot, but I dont want to give too much bulletin board material. Holmes County nished 10-2 after falling to Chipley 27-6 in the regional nal. Johnson wouldnt give lofty predictions, but he did say the team circled the date when the teams are set for the Nov. 2 meeting this season. There is much reason for optimism, and it begins with the return of Kodi Russ at running back. The senior rushed for 948 yards, scored 18 touchdowns and was the workhorse for an offense that saw little opposition until Chipley. He again will be the main rusher in a potent offense. I dont know if you can expect any more; hes pretty danged good, Johnson said. We will rely on him like we have in the past, and he will step up and deliver like he has in the past. Johnson is hopeful a switch for Jacky Miles from running back to quarterback will add a new dimension to the offense and spruce up the passing game. Miles has experience at quarterback at Graceville as a sophomore, and he played running back during recovery from an arm injury as a junior transfer to Holmes County. Hes fully healthy this season and brings leadership following a stint at catcher on Holmes Countys state runner-up baseball team. Its big for us. Through the summer hes transitioned well to it, Johnson said of Miles, who will replace one of the few departures in Ethan Russ. Hes still a great run threat back there, too, and he can throw the ball. Joining the duo at the skill positions are a group of talented and experienced players. The list is led by senior Franklin Russ, who replaced Kodi Russ at running back during spring drills while the latter played for the Blue Devils baseball team. Franklin Russ played at wide receiver last year, and Johnson said the switch and the return of junior Ty Russ will add needed depth to spell Kodi Russ. Ty Russ and seniors Dustin Janas, Jordan Segers and Austin Burk comprise a group of wide receivers that have shown improvement. Ty Russ and Janas combined for 24 receptions and 460 yards last season. Holmes County lost only one offensive lineman, center Will Farmer. Sophomore Chase Forehand will take over at center after starting at right guard last season. Juniors Brit Bailey and Perry Lee are competing for the new right guard position. Seniors Garrett Gardner and Sam Wells return to anchor left guard and left tackle, respectively, and senior Zach Cooley is back at right tackle. Johnson said there is depth with young backups Hunter Parish, Ruben Martinez and Thomas Parish lling in as needed. Gardner, the teams leading returning tackler, will anchor the linebackers corps along with Segers, Forehand and possibly Miles, who could see time at the position as well as defensive back. Johnson has little doubt Gardner can perform even better this season to replace the output of the departed Tanner Bryant, who led the team with six sacks. Janas, Sam Wells, senior Tyler Wells and Chris Newton comprise the line. Miles, Burk, Ty Russ, Kodi Russ, Franklin Russ and senior Phil Agolio will work in a rotation at defensive back to give the Blue Devils versatility with size and speed. Holmes County limited opponents to 13 points per game last season. The Blue Devils scored almost 30 points a game and a statistical repeat, or expected bump in scoring, again will make it dif cult for rural opponents. Johnson continued to refrain from bold predictions but said the locker room has a different feel to it this season. Last year, the team ended a long playoff drought. He knows they see more on the horizon. The kids are red up, and theyre excited about the season, Johnson said. Theyre ready to go out and see what happens.Yellow Jackets hope for return to state playoffsBy JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com VERNON Have Hunter Dobbs, will travel. That was the case last year as Dobbs led Vernon to the state playoffs for the rst time since 2007. Hes spent considerable time at quarterback since his freshman year, but his insertion at running back gives the Yellow Jackets a player on whom they can focus the offense. Hes outstanding. I dont know what else you can say, Vernon head coach Ryan Boyd said. He hits the weight room and does everything hes supposed to do. Hes always been a leader ever since he got here. Hes played varsity since the day he stepped on campus. Hes always been a leader. Hes always been good to the younger kids. Hes helped out in any way possible. Dobbs led the Yellow Jackets to a District 2-1A title and the Class 1A postseason last fall. Although he has proven he can direct the offense from under center, Vernon has another player Dylan Kirk who has showcased his own ability at quarterback. Kirks presence has freed up Dobbs to be the lead tailback. He got about ve games in (at quarterback), plus the playoffs, Boyd said of Kirk. Hes kind of a gamer. Hes relaxed back there and makes good decisions, doesnt turn it over and gets the ball in athletes hands. Boyd said Vernon had 30 players turn out for the fall, an uptick from last year. He said the roster will be junior-heavy and features only four seniors, but he said the team is hungry to return to the playoffs and improve on a 4-7 nish. It gave them a little taste in the mouth, Boyd said. They seem to like it. Boyd is entering his second season as Vernons head coach, and he acknowledged that having a full year to his credit has made his job easier entering this season. He noted his familiarity with the teams personnel and players. That works the other way, too, of course. Vernons players have a much better grasp of Boyds expectations and those of his coaching staff. Everyone coming in knows what their role will be, Boyd said. Boyd, who said hell have several players competing on both sides of the line of scrimmage, said he has three returning starters on the offensive line. He is pleased with the four starters on the defensive line, though he warned that depth is a concern there. Vernon has a pair of safeties in the defensive back eld strong safety Cody Harmon and free safety Austin Brown who will highlight the defense. Boyd also mentioned senior Casey Boukard. Codys all over the eld defensively, Boyd said. Hes not a big guy, but hes not afraid to come up and hit you. Austin, hes a (6-foot-2) receiver who plays free safety for us. He covers a lot of ground in the middle of the eld. Hes good to have back there. Casey Boukard is a middle linebacker who did a good job last year. Boyd expects the district to be tough again with Graceville, Sneads, Cottondale and last years league runner-up, Wewahitchka, contending for playoff spots. He said the team got out to a slow start in 2011, losing three of its rst four games. The Yellow Jackets rebounded, however, to make a late push for the playoffs. They might follow a similar path this season, playing four of their rst ve games on the road. We had a lot of guys who hadnt gotten on the eld before and did a good job for us, Boyd said. There wasnt a whole lot of experience, but they got more as the year went on.

(AP) Jimmie Johnson looked as if he had already nished the hardest work. After starting at the back of the pack, he had moved up quickly, and when he passed Brad Keselowski for the lead on lap 191 of 200, his No. 48 Chevrolet seemed to be the superior car. Then Johnsons engine faltered with only six laps remaining. He lost the race and the NASCAR Sprint Cup points lead to Greg Bif e on Sunday. I got it turned around and was catching him, and then his engine failed, Bif e said. It was going to be a great race, no matter what. I felt like I could catch him, but well never know. Passing him might have been a different story. Bif e won the race at Michigan International Speedway, taking advantage when Johnson left the track because of engine trouble. Johnson started from the back because of an engine change, and he couldnt hold on at the end. He nished 27th. After Johnsons mishap, there was a caution for oil on the track. Bif e held off Keselowski by 0.416 seconds in the greenwhite-checkered nish. Bif e took over the points lead, while Johnson dropped from rst to fourth. Matt Kenseth moved up a spot to second despite a 17th-place showing. I know that a lot of people dont expect us to win the championship, and dont expect us to compete for the title, Bif e said. I dont care what they say or who they want to talk about, but we will be a factor when it comes down to Homestead. I promise you that. Kasey Kahne nished third in the 400mile race, followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Marcos Ambrose. It was the 12th victory for Roush Fenway Racing at MIS, breaking a tie with the Wood Brothers for the most wins at the track. Pole sitter Mark Martin was sailing along in the lead for most for the rst 65 laps before his race ended in scary fashion. Bobby Labonte went into a spin while Martin was coming up from behind, and Martin went sliding off toward pit road. His car crashed frighteningly into the end of a short, narrow barrier on the interior side of pit road. The side of Martins car was essentially impaled by the end of the wall, just in front of the left rear tire and dangerously close to the drivers seat. But in the smoky scene that followed, Martin was able to get out and walk away. I really feel that was a freak accident. Im not sure you can ever completely x something like that, Martin said. That was a pretty freak angle that I got it. Im not sure what you can do. It could have been really bad if I would have got into that hole a little deeper where it would have caught me in the door instead of the crush area back there. Johnson started from the back, and so did Earnhardt, who was using a backup car after a mishap in practice Saturday. The two Hendrick Motorsports teammates made a solid run of it, but it was Bif e and his No. 16 Ford that emerged at the end. Johnson did not speak to reporters afterward. He was trying to become the rst driver to reach four victories this season. Keselowski and Tony Stewart also have three, and drivers will earn bonus points in the Chase for the Sprint Cup for regularseason victories. The Chase starts next month.Bif e leads Cup standings GREG BIFFLE Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Tyler Harrison,were awarded nalist for the 2012 Florida Sheriffs Association Deputy Sheriff of the Year Award. The award comes as a re ection of their dedication, sel essness and desire to protect our community and support their fellow colleagues. For several days leading up to Feb. 2, 2011, the Gritney community and the entire county had spent several restless nights as Law Enforcement of cers engaged in a multi-state search for a man believed to have murdered his parents. At 7:40 a.m. the Holmes County Communications Center received a report of a hunter who had been shot in a wooded area in the Gritney community of Holmes County. Several of cers responded to the call. Lt. Raley and Sgt. Harrison led a Florida Department of Corrections canine tracking team into the wooded area to search for the shooter who was later identi ed as murder suspect, Wade Williams. After coming under re in a heavily wooded area, Lt. Raley and Sgt. Harrison along with other DOC of cers were able to eliminate the threat and provide medical assistance to the wounded. They immediately began to attend to Col. Malloys wounds and provide CPR as they awaited a helicopter to evacuate him. Sadly, Col. Greg Malloy of the Florida Department of Corrections later died from the gunshot injuries he sustained in the exchange of gun re. Both of these men faced danger together to protect the citizens of Holmes County and their fellow of cers, said Sheriff Tim Brown. We are very fortunate to have them on our team and I feel they are very deserving of this award.Lewis and McDuf e to Wed Holmes County Deputies, Lt. Michael Raley and Sgt.

HIRED EmployFlorida.com1-866-FLA-2345 THG-11909 Many dog owners work hard to make their pets comfortable and happy, so it can be frustrating when a dog is constantly itching and distressed. Dr. Adam Patterson, clinical assistant professor and Chief of Dermatology at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Small Animal Clinic, explained how some perpetually itchy dogs may suffer from food allergies. Food allergies in dogs present themselves quite differently than food allergies in humans, Patterson said. For instance a person who is allergic to shell sh may experience throat swelling and a possibly critical or fatal reaction, but in dogs the allergy is expressed through the skin and seen most often as itch. Dogs who itch, lick, chew, rub, bite, and scratch themselves year round, typically around the face, ears, armpits, groin, paws, and around the anus may be showing signs of a food allergy. Since itchy are factors have an additive effect, it is important to eliminate other possible causes of itching. First, it is necessary to eliminate any possibility that parasites, particularly eas, are causing the dog to itch. Likewise, the veterinarian should also look for signs of skin infections (bacteria and/or yeast). Secondly, the veterinarian will also determine if environmental factors are causing itchy skin. Dogs with year-round itch, who eat roughly the same diet yearlong, are frequently candidates for a food allergy diagnosis. There isnt a conclusive clinical skin or blood (serum) test to see whether a dog has a food allergy, Patterson said. Its like ipping a coin to determine whether the test is a true or false positive. Because of this, we have to base our diagnosis on the dogs history, clinical signs of skin disease, and response to a food trial. The test for food allergies in dogs simply isnt conclusive at this time, but we hope some of our research will lead to an effective test. To diagnose a dog with food allergy, the rst thing to do is put the patient on an elimination diet, or an exclusive novel protein diet. This ends up being a diet with individual ingredients to which the dog has rarely ever consumed before. Usually, the diet is commercially prepared and fed for a minimum of eight weeks. The goal is to determine if food is a component of the itching. Typically dogs are allergic to proteins they are exposed to for extended periods of time. In the United States, dogs are generally allergic to beef, chicken, and egg protein. Patterson explained that most elimination diets replace beef, chicken, and egg based foods with an exotic meat protein like venison, duck, kangaroo, or vegetable-based. After eight weeks, the patient is challenged by returning to the original diet. If the dogs symptoms (itch) improved during the eight weeks, then return when the dogs original diet is replaced, then a food allergy is con rmed. Patients with food allergies typically relapse within two weeks of returning to the original diet, Patterson said. It is important during the elimination diet to remove any avored medicines or supplements, table scraps, typical treats, rawhides, and pill pockets from the animals diet so the test isnt compromised. If a commercially prepared novel protein diet is not suf cient, a prescription hydrolyzed diet may be necessary. This food is only available by prescription from a veterinarian. It helps dogs with food allergies by breaking down the protein into small enough fragments that the immune system cannot recognize it, and, therefore, does not induce a skin reaction. Another option for dogs with food allergies is a limited ingredient home-cooked diet. Patterson recommends only doing this under close supervision of a veterinarian. While any breed is susceptible to food allergies, Patterson sees many poodles, boxers, weimaraner, dachshunds, chocolate labs, and German shepherds with food allergies. He has also noticed dogs with German lineages tend to be more susceptible to food allergies. Generally dogs diagnosed with food allergies can remain on commercially prepared elimination diets for life without complications. As with any skin disease, there really isnt a cure, Patterson said. Instead, proper management of the disease can keep dogs happy and healthy lifelong.

Rolling with the Brave will raise funds to assist the National Veterans Wheelchair Games to be held in Tampa in July of 2013. President Matyskiels goal for F.S.C.A.R. is to raise $13,000.00 to become a bronze sponsor of the 2013 Tampa Bay National Veterans Wheelchair Games. Blue Springs Society members and senior leaders are excited about attending the state seminar in Tampa in Sept., to learn more about the games and to actually experience the challenge of competing in a wheelchair. Some members hope to have a chance to compete in the sport of motorized wheelchair racing while at the seminar.

When we are at play we are fully engaged in something. There is reciprocity in play whereby when we play the game, the game is also playing us. We are taken up into the game and swept along as we play, as in life. Likewise, when someone plays a musical instrument there is a sense that they play the instrument while the instrument plays them; good musicians become one with their instruments. There is also an element of chance in play. We cant predict the outcome at the outset of play and random things tend to happen in play. Sometimes the random or errant blue note in music is just right. It is interesting to note that one of our synonyms for play is recreation. Are we somehow re-creating when we play? Was God playing when he created the universe? Is the universe fully created even now or is it still unfolding? Perhaps the universe is the continual unfolding of a divine cosmic game. Whether we think of existence as a game of chance where anything might happen, or a beautiful melody being played by a master musician, there is certainly something playful at work in the Cosmos.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy ofSing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

SnyderI must say I do not get very much help on keeping things simple, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night, and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the bath and body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruity-tooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I should dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone? I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is, and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went, they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

B8| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, August 22, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By DIANE DIRESTAMonster Contributing Writer You might look good on paper or in your interview suit, but if you are looking to nail your big interview, looks are not everything. How you sound often is more important. But many job seekers let careless speech habits sink their chances of landing that plum job. Here are six common language mistakes and how to keep them from sabotaging your interview:1. NonwordsFiller words such as um, ah, you know, OK or like tell the interviewer you are not prepared and make you sound like a Valley Girl (or Boy). A better strategy is to think before you speak, taking pauses and breaths when you lose your train of thought. Everybody utters an occasional um, but dont let it start every sentence.2. Up-talkA singsong or rising inflection at the end of every sentence creates a tentative impression and makes it sound as though you are asking a question instead of making a definitive statement. You need to speak with conviction when selling yourself in an interview. Bring your intonation down when ending a sentence to avoid talking up.3. Grammatical errorsThe interviewer might question your education when you use incorrect grammar or slang. Expressions such as aint she dont, me and my friend and so I goes to him are not appropriate. Be sure you speak in complete sentences and that tenses agree. The interview is not the venue for regional expressions or informality.4. Sloppy speechSlurring words together or dropping their endings impairs the clarity of your message. To avoid slurring and increase understanding, speak slowly during an interview. Make a list of commonly mispronounced words, and practice saying them into a tape recorder before the interview. Some common incorrect pronunciations include aks for ask, ath-a-lete for athlete, wif for with and dree for three.5. Speed talkingWhile everybody is a bit anxious during an interview, you do not want your information to fly by like a speeding bullet. A rapid speaking rate is difficult to follow, and speed talkers are seen as nervous. Slow down your racing heart by doing some breathing exercises before the interview. To avoid rushing, listen to the question, and then count two beats in your head before answering. When you finish a sentence, count two beats again before continuing. Dont be afraid of silence. Pausing is an effective communication technique. The interviewer needs a few seconds to process what you just said anyway.6. Weak speakWimpy words modify or water down your conviction and in the end your position. When you pepper a conversation with hopefully, perhaps, I feel, kind of and sort of, the message you convey is a lack of confidence. Use power words such as Im confident that, my track record shows, I take the position that, I recommend or my goal is. The language you use gives the listener an impression about your level of confidence and conviction.The bottom lineYou do not have to study elocution to speak well. Simply slow down, take time to pronounce all the syllables and leave slang at home. Companies want job candidates who are well-spoken and articulate, and recruiters will not represent a job candidate if they do not match the clients profile. According to Lori Zelman, vice president of human resources at Strategic Workforce Solutions in New York City, The people most highly sought after are the ones who are succinct in the explanation of their work experience.6 speech habits which sabotage Featured Jobs DFW EOE, & a smoke free campus Competitive Salary & Benets RNS, MED/SURG All shifts, experience preferred.
