Our shelters are on standby, said Washington County Emergency Management Coordinator Lynne Abel. Right now, were at Level 2 and monitoring the situation. At this point we dont anticipate needing the shelters. If the Washington County School District buildings were not going to be needed as shelters, then it would be up to the school administration to determine whether or not school would be held after the storm arrived, Abel said. The storm was anticipated to make landfall Tuesday. School was let out at 1 p.m. Monday in anticipation of the storm, and school of cials would meet with county emergency of cials to make further determinations. Although Isaac was tracking to the west on Monday, the emergency of cials still were concerned with the squall lines that might accompany the tropical storm. We are going to see some rain, and it could be heavy, Abel said. The worst-case scenario is 8-12 inches. Flash ooding could mean closed roads, downed trees and power lines, of cials said. We are keeping an eye on the track of Isaac, said Natalie Smith, Gulf Power spokesperson.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, August 29, 2012 lor said. Theres a reward at the end of the schooling, and enjoy the journey. Most of her strength, she said, was derived from the love and support of her fam ily and church family. I couldnt have done it without the support of my family, she said. Thered be no way I could nish both my bachelors and masters degree without the support of both my home family and my church family. Taylor said she enjoys her job and her 2-year-old son, Eli Taylor. I enjoy working here, and hopefully well be here for years to come, she said. Patrick Hawkins Dr. Patrick Hawkins had the potential of being a great doctor even before he gradu ated from HCHS, according to Dr. Leisa Bailey of Bailey Family Practice in Bonifay. He began helping Bailey in her clinic toward the end of his high school career, Hawkins said, and he knew health was the area he wanted to be in. I didnt dream of becom ing a doctor, I just knew I wanted to be in the health care eld, Hawkins said. I thought that becoming a doctor was a too much to dream of become a reality. He went from Chipola College in Marianna to the University of Florida in Gainesville and earned his degree in nutrition. Af ter that, he was accepted to Florida State Univer sity, specializing in rural medicine. He then accepted fam ily medicine residency in Marianna for four years and would nd himself working in the emergency room at Doctors Memorial Hospital after talking with Bailey. While in college, Hawkins received a scholarship from Doctors Memorial Hospi tal, and that was one of the deciding factors to return home. It helped out, Hawkins said. They took a chance on me with the scholar ship. It showed me that they cared. Coming home was every thing he thought it would be, he said. It feels good to be home, treating the people you know, he said. You get a little more pride taking care of the people you grew up and around. Its fullling to come back and support and help the town you grew up in. He laughed a little when he said Bailey was always encouraging him to come home. When I was volunteer ing at her clinic before I left, she was always joking about how shed always hire me when I got back, he said. I didnt think much about it then, but it was cool. His biggest support, he said, came from his parents. I knew I wanted to go into the medical eld, but I wasnt sure if I could go as far as a doctor, he said. They always encouraged me to shoot for the best and see where it landed me. Hawkins said he was hoping to go to medical school, but it seemed like an unlikely dream. It was so competitive seeing all those people go ing for the same thing, he said. It was discouraging, but my parents kept their faith in me. Another pillar of strength, he said, came from his wife and in-laws during his rst year of medical school. Having a wife at home made it a lot less stressful, he said. He said he ended up waiting until later in life to have a family, but now he has a 2-year-old son, Jaxon Hawkins, and another son on the way. It was frustrating to come back for social events and have to see everyone you knew getting married and having kids, he said. Now it seems weve got it in overdrive. He said he was glad to have been able to travel, gain experience and then bring it home with him. Im right where I want to be, he said. With my wide range of experience, I feel it makes me a better doctor. I love working here and being the team physi cian for Holmes County. Its been a lot of fun. Kelly Smith Chipleys Kelly A. Smith, optometrist for The Eye Center of North Floridas Chipley ofce, said she al ways knew shed be in the medical eld, but the decid ing factor came when she had a life-changing experi ence while she was only in middle school. When I was in middle school, I had been tted with a pair of glasses I didnt even know I needed, Smith said. It was then I was able to see the world in a new light, literally. I didnt know my life was a blur until things were made clear and I could see there were leaves to the trees and blades of grass; this life-changing experi ence made me realize that I wanted to share that experi ence with others. Smith grew up in the area and graduated from Graceville High School. She then moved forward to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Huntingdon College in Alabama and her doctor of optometry degree from the University of Alabama in Birmingham. According to her biogra phy, she is board-certied and a member of the Ameri can Optometric Association. She is also a captain in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and practices optometry at Eg lin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach. At rst I had no inten tion of coming home, Smith said. I moved to Dothan (Ala.), and it was far enough from home that when I got a chance to come home it made me more than glad to be back. Smith said she much pre ferred a small town. I like the small town feel of being able to connect with my patients on a personal level, Smith said. Treating these patients and knowing Ill see them again is like treating family. She said she was lucky to have the best of both worlds being a satellite company in a rural area. Its a small ofce in a small clinic, but because were a satellite company weve got access to leading specialists and technology, Smith said. The most fullling mo ments of her career is when she can share the experi ence she had with others, she said. When those adolescents and teenagers come in and dont know they even have problems, then watching as they see the world clearly for the rst time, she said. Thats my favorite time; to show them what the worlds like with and with out glasses. A close second is being able to detect and correct severe cataracts, she said. It all goes back to work ing and living with our com munity, she said. Smith and her husband, Forrest, run a basketball program called the CROSS over at the old Roulhac Mid dle School gym in Chipley. Weve got kids that are with the basketball group that come in, Smith said. Its them putting on the glasses and watching them cry because they can see. Its instant gratication of being able to see, and its very touching. The most frustrating times, she said, are when nothing can be done. In school they say that the hardest people to treat is your family, she said. Since theyre all family to me, if one of them should come in and they have something that cant be treated and theres nothing that can be done, then its very frustrat ing and painful. She said if theres anyone wishing to go into optometry, they should. Although at times its stressful, its very worth it, she said. I cant imagine a better profession. If I looked back at what I wanted, prac ticing in Chipley has far ex ceeded my expectations. Jason Hatcher Dr. Jason Daniel Hatch er, family practitioner, is a native of Bonifay and be lieves his greatest asset is his family, which is why hes home. I really enjoyed sci ence, Hatcher said. I con templated medicine then went to college to become a chemical engineer. Hatcher said he grew up in Caryville, where his family owned a grocery store. After graduating from HCHS in 1988, he went on to Chipola Junior College and then on to Florida State University. After I received my bachelors degree from FSU in biochemistry and biology, I decided I wanted more then my bachelors degree, Hatcher said. I couldve continued in chemical en gineering, but then I knew that Id either end up work ing at a college or at some port city lab. I decided medi cine would be much better. He then went on to Nova Southeastern Univer sity College of Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, receiv ing a degree in osteopathic medicine. After earning his medical SECOND PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE Holmes County is applying to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) for a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) under the neighborhood revitalization category in the amount of $750,000.00.

I had an interest in working in a smaller area, though I hadnt started with my home town in mind, Hatcher said. After being home for 10 years, theres been some upsides and some downsides. Being around people Ive known my whole life, close to my parents and being in a good environment to raise my child is wonderful. He said he enjoys being so close to his family. Allowing his daughter, Caroline Elizabeth, to visit her grandparents often has been a blessing. I have a feeling of providing a needed service to my family and my community, Hatcher said. It feels pretty good. The downside, he said, is there is no anonymity. I go into Wal-Mart and see at least 10 people I know, Hatcher said. At least two of those 10 want to discuss medical issues they or someone they know are having. Because they know me they want to work outside of the of ce, which isnt fair to the other patients. He said another disadvantage of working in a small town practice is that there arent any specialists nearby. Its discouraging sometimes because I have patients that dont go to specialists Ive referred them to because they dont have the gas to make such a long trip, Hatcher said. And then theres Medicaid, when specialist such as orthopedics wont provide standard care unless a bones broken. There were a few things he missed about being in a bigger area, too, he said, such as having a large variety of restaurants, movie theaters and other conveniences. I would also get a lot more money working in a large area, but I get more then enough working here, he said. Besides, its the safety and good environment for my child versus the larger area, and thats no contest. My family comes rst and foremost. will work as fast and as safely as possible. We will also be in touch with neighboring utilities to make sure we can call in extra workers if necessary. Smith said all Gulf Power employees have a hurricane assignment and that the company reviews detailed storm plans during the year. We also go each year to help other areas of the Southeast when they have hurricanes, so we re ne our plans each year based on different scenarios, Smith said. This experience pays off when we have a storm in Northwest Florida. Despite this planning, Smith reminded customers hurricanes can cause lengthy power outages up to two to three weeks for major storms. The change in storm track could mean less rain north of the Florida Panhandle, which would be good, Abel said. If the region upstream of Holmes and Washington counties got heavy rain, the result could be river ooding on top of the ash ooding that is expected. There is also a possibility that Washington County could have to provide host shelter to residents from the coastal regions of the Panhandle, Abel said. However, the shelters the county has available should be suf cient for that without using the school buildings. In Holmes County, of cials also were meeting Monday afternoon to discuss school closings and weather preparedness. These things are so unpredictable, Abel said. This is a very large storm, and it covers a very large area, and we are expecting some intensi cation in strength. The timing of Tropical Storm Isaac has some beach-side business owners unsure of results for the Labor Day weekend, the last big tourism weekend of summer. The storm is expected to be long gone by then, giving way to a typical late summer weather pattern, but regardless of the sunny skies expected next weekend, the nancial impact of Isaac might linger, some fear. Weve been very strong this week, and it doesnt seem to have affected the bookings for this weekend, said Jack Bishop, Panama City Beach restaurant owner. This weekend has been pretty good because its been good weather other than that little shock of rain. Bishop said he still has the regular amount of employees scheduled for the week before Labor Day, as of now. Because of the nature of the restaurant business, he could react with information disseminated as late as Monday. For the lodging industry, Isaac could have a more damaging effect next weekend. CJ Ryan, marketing representative for Grand Panama and Origin Beach Resorts, said business this weekend was not dampened, but his clients already have begun to feel the results of Isaac for the coming weekend. Since the cone has us dead-centered, they have received a ton of cancellations for the weekend, Rain said, referring to the National Hurricane Centers forecast path for Isaac. It just hypes the danger of it. When you see a big red cone over where youre thinking of going for vacation, you arent going to go. Before the cone of uncertainty, as Ryan called it, was on top of Bay County, bookings were around 85 to 90 percent, but occupancy could drop to around half of what they had expected, depending on how soon the storm blows through. The potential for a landfall as soon as Tuesday prompted evacuations along a wide area of the Gulf Coast and sent people out to stock up on staples. I would suspect anyone selling staples needed during an emergency ashlights, batteries, generators is doing a brisk business, said Washington County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett.

We hear a lot about new beginnings when the new calendar year rolls around, but I always feel that this time of the year brings more new beginnings. With fall comes the new school year and all its activities, football, drama events, new teachers, new classes. For many college students it means a new residence. I have just seen three of my granddaughters getting settled into dorms or apartments. With the fall election, well see many county, state and national offices being filled with new faces. Some civic clubs which dont meet during summer months will resume activities in September. I have just been involved in planning Bonifay Garden Clubs activities for the 2012/13 club year. Well begin our new year with a luncheon meeting at Doctors Memorial Board room on September 14. Another organization which Im involved in is the Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation. And we are already deep into plans for our BIG fall event, the haunted hospital. Ever since the new hospital was occupied in 2008, the old building has sat vacant waiting and hoping some other organization will purchase or lease it for use as, perhaps, a retirement home, assisted living facility or something useful. Last fall, the building was brought to life for 8 nights in October as an attraction for Halloween. We called it OUTBREAK and it was a howling success, surpassing our wildest expectations. We are rated among the tops for screams and laughter on the www. floridahauntedhouses. com website. No town in Florida closer than Busch Gardens in Tampa or Orlandos Disney World were on the list. This year, the planning committee composed of some of the hospital employees and some of our foundation members have already been hard at work. These creative people have in place plans to outdo last year with our theme, PHOBIK 2012. What are you afraid of? The event will be held on Fridays and Saturdays the last three weekends in October and Halloween night from 6 11 p.m. each night. Last year from the first night and throughout the event, the wait time to get in was an hour or more. Yet, the people waited in line in a party spirit with no unpleasant incidents. In order to alleviate the long lines this year, the team is formulating a plan whereby tickets may be purchased on line in advance for early entry into the event. These will be admitted before 7:30 until all advance tickets for that evening have been honored. (Of course, if you are unable to arrive between 6 and 7:30, your ticket will still be honored as general admission.) In addition to on-line ticket purchases, and group ticketing, we are taking advantage of the carnival-like atmosphere and will have other things to occupy the wait time. Local non-profit groups like the Bonifay Fire Department, Holmes County EMS Unit, and Doctors Memorial Auxiliary will have food and drinks available. A childrens game area is also planned as the attraction is not recommended for children under 13 unless accompanied by an adult. As the time draws nearer, you will see more about PHOBIK What are you afraid of, but you may go to the website, www. PHOBIK.org for more details and to reserve tickets which will be $10 per person. Being a person with a couple of real phobias, I have trouble getting into the spirit of Halloween and the scarey stuff. But it is amazing how these sorts of things have caught on in the past few years. I am happy to be out front doing my part for this worthy cause enjoying the crisp fall air, meeting and greeting locals as well as those from outlying areas such as Dothan, Hartford, DeFuniak Springs, Marianna, Cottondale, Chipley, and Panama City. Wednesday, August 29, 2012 A news bulletin begins the prattle column today. The Heritage of Washington County Book, issued in 2006 and out of print for more than two years, is now available once again. Your writer arranged for this fourth printing and the books are at my home. Call me at 638-1016 to obtain your copy at the original price of $64.20 or $72 when mailed. The email address is: perry1000@ bellsouth.net. At the 107th annual Brock Reunion on June 16, many commitments for purchasing the additional books were made, thus the order went out and the books are now here. The Prattler came to the conclusion during the assimilation and distribution of The Heritage Book, that a family reunion was a good source for obtaining histories and stories for publication, as well as an excellent sales prospect when the book was completed. Family Reunions and The Heritage Book brings to mind one of the most recently established family gatherings in this county. One that was designed as an opportunity for one large family consisting of a husband and wife, along with the twelve offspring, to maintain contact with each other. It was in the early 1970s when the John Alex Wells and Arleva Cook Wells Family held the rst get together, of cially labeled a reunion. It was held at the home of the couple, consisting of an outside picnic type lunch, where, from the beginning until the present, all the children have faithfully supported and attended the family event. The mother, Arleva, died Nov. 9, 1979 with the father, John Alex, passing away on May 5, 1981. The oldest son, Lee E. Wells died December 18, 1990 with his wife, Alyne, dying since Lees death. Next to pass away was son, Parker Wells, whose date of death was Dec. 14, 1997. His wife, Lois, has also died. Since the above book was published, daughter, Arkie Wells Revell, has died, with her husband, Percy, preceding her death. The Aug. 11, 2012 Alex Wells Family Reunion, was held without another family member, with the passing of the daughter, Mary Wells Perdue, who died about a month before the special day. Since the death of the parents, the Second Saturday in August Wells Family Reunion is now being held at the home of son, Carlton Wells and wife, Marion Wells, also on Wells Road. The gathering place is now held in a spacious, air-conditioned social hall, which Carlton has dubbed the barn. The story of this family is recorded on pages 364 and 365 in The Heritage of Washington County Book mentioned above. The story of this family, beginning with the elopement and marriage without the consent of either parent, is a heartwarming one. The signal for the prospective bride to meet the proposed groom was signaled with him whistling the tune Red Wing. They barely made the get-a-way, but successful made it to Dothan for the marriage. This was on August 9, 1920. The family history will show that in March of 1929, the young family was forced out of Caryville with the ooding of the Choctawhatchee River, losing practically all of their earthly possessions. Many other residents of the town suffered the same fate, being forced to evacuate and ee the ooding borders of the raging river. All surviving siblings, including Rufus Wells, John Alex Wells, Jr., Wilma Wells Stubbs, Imogene Wells Birge, Harrell Wells, Carlton Wells, Joel Wells and Annie Lou Wells Richard were in attendance. A host of second and third generations of Wells offspring added to the full house of kinsmen for the joyous occasion. Rufus Eldeen Wells, born June 29, 1926, is the third in the sequence of the Alex and Arleva Wells children. He is now the senior member of this family and, in fact, is the oldest grandchild of the paternal grandparents, James Thomas Wells and Hannah Malinda Brock Wells. Next in the order of grandchildren is the writers brother, Jim Wells, who is only a month short of Rufus age. The shocking news is that yours truly could ascend to that status since I am third in the age order. Rufus lost his wife, Mary, a few years ago. His only child, Thedford Alex Wells, passed away suddenly last year. He continues to reside in Ocala, Florida where his granddaughters, Amy, Alexis, Stephanie and Rachel, continue to administer to his needs. He retired after 30 years service at the Ocala Star Banner newspaper. In addition to Rufus, medical problems continue to plague other family members, including John Alex, Jr. Wilma and Harrell. Marion, Carltons wife, has experienced some medical issues during the past year, but stands strong and insists that the established reunion be carried out at their home. The 36 or so years this family has come together for a reunion does not come near the longevity of other family gatherings, but the loyalty, steadfastness and a determination to keep the family ties together is heart warming, considering all circumstances which could befall a family of this magnitude. See you all next week. HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells Rufus Wells dressed in his U. S. Army uniform which he proudly wore as a member of the U. S.

For many college students it means a new residence. I have just seen three of my granddaughters getting settled into dorms or apartments. With the fall election, well see many county, state and national offices being filled with new faces. Some civic clubs which dont meet during summer months will resume activities in September.

For the fifth consecutive year, Florida has expanded participation and continued to see performance growth on the ACT. Floridas minority students also improved their scores across all subject areas. The 2012 ACT Condition of College & Career Readiness report shows in keeping with the trend during the past five years, Florida increased the number of graduates taking the ACT while also increasing average scores in all subject areas of the test. Although national scores either slightly decreased or remained unchanged, Florida saw small increases in every subject area and the overall composite score. Florida students made gains toward the national average in each subject area in 2012. Average ACT scores nationwide were mostly unchanged from 2011 to 2012, with the only change in English, where average scores decreased by one-tenth of a point. Florida has a larger proportion of minority students taking the ACT than in the nation. Floridas minority students also experienced an increase in average ACT scores across all subject areas. About 56.4 percent of Floridas ACT test takers are minority students, compared to 35.9 percent nationwide. Florida has considerably larger percentages of black and Hispanic students taking the ACT than the nation. In 2012, black students represented 24 percent of Florida test takers, compared to 13.3 percent for the nation. Hispanic students represented 26.2 percent of Florida test takers, compared to 14.1 percent for the nation. During the past five years, Florida has experienced substantial growth in the number of minority students taking the ACT. Black test takers have increased by 26 percent, Hispanics by 45 percent, American Indians by 8 percent and Asians by 15 percent. Floridas minority students experienced increases in average ACT composite scores from 2011 to 2012. African American composite scores increased from 16.3 to 16.5 and Hispanic students from 18.3 to 18.6.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, August 29, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section By S TAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Deer hunters will tell you there has been quite a change in hunting over the past 30 to 40 years in Florida. Decades ago the majority of deer hunters used dogs and still-hunting was the exception. The roles have reversed for several reasons but as stillhunting has become more popular, particularly hunting from tree stands, injuries and deaths from tree stand accidents are more common. George Warthen, a hunter safety coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said there are common sense things any hunter who uses a tree stand can do to avoid a problem. First and foremost, only use stands that are certi ed by the Treestand Manufacturers Association. All of your stands sold in major stores today carry the TMA certi cation, Warthen said. That means the stand has been properly engineered and manufactured. He said homemade tree stands built in someones garage or back lot should be thrown out, regardless of the emotional attachment. Warthen said most major outdoor stores sell full-body harnesses. He said every hunter who uses a tree stand should wear one. A full-body harness should be worn and attached to the tree before you go up the tree, until your feet are back on the ground, he said. A full-body harness wont keep you from a fall but worn and properly adjusted, they will keep you in the tree, until you can let yourself down. They are a lifesaver. A hunters attention should always be focused solely on getting into a stand, and back down. For that reason, Warthen said hunters always should use a haul line to raise and lower bows and rearms. He said it also is important that rearms be loaded only after a person is safely secured in a tree stand. While some hunters like to leave their homemade ladder stand in the woods from one season to the next, Warthen said thats not a good idea. These type stands fall under the homemade category and they are simply not as safe as a professionally made stand. Not only that, stands left in the outdoors may have wood or boards that rot and screws and nails that may back out. For hunters who choose not to use a tree stand, Warthen said there are a variety of pop-up ground blinds available. The blinds are relatively inexpensive and can be set up virtually anywhere. He said they also are more creature comfort friendly, allowing hunters to avoid wind and rain. Similar to boating, Warthen said its a good idea to have a hunting plan. A hunting plan is as simple as telling someone where you will be hunting. Tree stand injuries easily avoidable He came up and CHOMPED Area residents catch 13-foot gators on 18-foot boat By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Armed with a spinning rod, a rope, a huge treble hook and a bang stick, they got their gator. Capt. Allen Staples and Chris Davis went gator hunting last week in Walton County and snatched a 702-pound alligator that measured out at 13 feet, 2 inches. He was big, said Staples who bagged a couple of 11-footers last year. The two guys had gone out Wednesday evening in search of a gator and found one, but they couldnt get it hooked. We got within 50 yards of it, but it kept going down, Staples said. After four or ve hours of hunting and tossing, they gave up. On Thursday they went back out to the same pond and there he was, in the same place, Staples said. Davis hooked the gator with the spinning reel and he went down. But at that point, they had him on the line. They dont run, Staples said. They just sink down to the bottom. They eased over to where the gator was and Davis after about six or seven throws on it was able to snatch him with their homemade treble hook that was attached to a rope. Its hard in the dark to see where he goes down, Staples said. Davis nally got the treble hook, made of offshore marlin hooks, in the gators front right leg. At that point, he took off, Staples said. He drug the boat around the lake. He pretty much did what he wanted to, said Davis who was holding on to the rope with his bare hands. I tried to be as easy as I could, but he was leaving. A few minutes into the ght, He came up and chomped stuck his head out of the water about up to his shoulders, Staples said. That was pretty intense. He took your breath away when he popped up, Davis said. Not long after, the gator went down and started rolling, Staples said. After a lot of tugging and pulling, they got close enough to get him with the bang stick. Then it took another hour to get him in the boat, Staples said. That was the hardest part, Davis added. The 13-plus foot gator went from one end of the boat to the other, in the 18-foot aluminum boat. I had a couple of 11-footers last year, and I thought he was about the same size, Staples said. But once they started hauling him in, Thats when we realized just how big he was. He was just bigger all the way around, Staples said. One of the boat captains at the docks that got a glimpse of the gator later that day said it was the biggest one hes ever seen and that it was about 2-feet across at the jowls. Although the ght got a little intense at times, Davis said, it was an awful lot of fun and Id certainly do it again. The two guys had gone out Wednesday evening in search of a gator and found one, We got within 50 yards of it, but it kept going down, Staples said.

The gator almost lled up the 18-foot aluminum boat. By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Hes more than hooked on shing. Its in the blood, says Capt. Chris Scho eld of the charter boat One Mor. Scho eld, at 27, is a fourthgeneration sherman. He got his rst taste of shing working along side his dad, Bruce Scho eld, aboard the Shooting Star with uncle Capt. David Rojas. I was about knee high to a grasshopper when I used to go along with dad, Chris said aboard the 32-foot G&S six-passenger boat. At age 9 he caught a 47-pounder aboard the Shooting Star with his uncle David. That kind of got me hooked, he said. They missed getting it into the Destin Fishing Rodeo by days. He caught the sh in November, missing out on the October shing tournament. Chris shed with David all through high school. After school he went to work as a second mate aboard the Anastasia with Capt. Tony Davis, and from there he advanced to rst mate on the Big John with Capt. Todd Allen. Capt. Allen bought the One Mor three years ago, and thats when Chris stepped into the captains chair. Its in the blood, he said. I worked in a grocery store for a little while and did a little bit of plumbing. I knew that wasnt it. I always came back to shing. The One Mor, docked on the harbor behind the Red Door Saloon, specializes in live bait shing. In addition to live baits, were going out there with lighter tackle, he said. Fishermen used to take big 9/0 reels with 200 pound test line. Chris says the 9/0 has been replaced by a 4/0. Were out there to entertain the family, not out there to ll the box, he said. But, We are out there to catch enough for dinner. Bottom shing trips are his most popular. I like grouper shing, Chris said. However, the biggest sh hes ever helped to haul in was a mako shark that weighed about 1,000 pounds. Scho eld said they caught the shark while cobia shing near Sandestin. We got a photo of him jumping with condos in the background, Scho eld said. After about an hour ght, they got the shark to the boat and cut him loose. Scho elds dream is to one day have a boat about the size of the Big John, a 52-footer. Todd has taught me a lot, Scho eld said, like where to nd sh and how to hold up on them. My dad taught me a lot of my knots. Hopefully in the next couple of years Ill have my own, he said. And I hope to have a nice fruitful shing career. But hes not in a rush. I think shing will always be here, Scho eld said. Its more about the entertainment aspect than catching 1,000 pounds of sh. Its the best of ce Ive found so far, he said.

Page 7 SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com Wednesday, August 29, 2012 A Section Holmes downs Graceville in kickoff classic Watson energizes Liberty County in win over Chipley By JASON SHOOT Halifax Media BRISTOL Dustin Watsons arrival at Liberty County provides more than just a boost to the passing game. Its also freed up the Bulldogs best athlete, Alex Marlowe, to make plays in space. Both players were instrumental in Liberty Countys 35-28 home win over Chipley Friday night in a preseason football game. Marlowe scored three touchdowns, and Watson passed for two in the Bulldog victory. The two Class 1A schools each enter the regular season next week with high expectations. Chipley, competing in District 3-1A, was the Class 1A state runner-up last fall. Liberty County is competing in District 4-1A and advanced to the Region 2-1A semi nals last year. The Bulldogs looked like they were the team on the rise, however, and Watsons presence at quarterback was a big reason why. Liberty County was a run-heavy team last year that ran into trouble when it faced thirdand-long situations, in particular. Watson showed some ability to extend plays in the offensive back eld, and he looked sharp throwing the football. A senior transfer from R.F. Monroe, Watson completed 5 of 9 passes for 105 yards. Hes going to increase our passing game, said Marlowe, the Bulldogs quarterback last year. Were a lot more balanced now that weve got somebody who can throw the ball out there. Marlowe, who nished with 127 yards on 12 carries, took the ball 41 yards on a sprint around the left side on the games rst play, and he scored a touchdown on a 7yard run seven plays later to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. Marlowe later added a 20yard touchdown and a 5-yard touchdown run. Hes a great player, Watson said. He carried the team last year, and were going to keep him going. Chipleys standout wingback, Kobe McCrary, was limited to 12 yards on four carries in the rst half but singlehandedly brought the Tigers back into contention in the second half. He scored on impressive touchdown romps of 22, 37 and 34 yards, the last of which pulled Chipley within 35-28 with 2:01 left. He nished the game with 135 yards on 11 carries. Liberty County survived a pair of onside kicks by the Tigers and nally were able to run out the clock and hang on. Its a win my book, Watson said. Chipley turned the ball over on its rst drive, the result of a snap over the head of quarterback Jordan Finch. Liberty Countys Jesse Williams pounced on the ball to give his team possession. The Bulldogs capitalized immediately as Watson threw a beautiful 33-yard touchdown pass to receiver Micheal Robinson for a 14-0 cushion. Chipley halved its de cit early in the second quarter when Liberty County lost track of Tigers receiver Josh Pitts running down eld. Pitts hauled in a Jordan Finch pass and then raced 57 yards untouched to pull the Tigers within 14-7 with 10:27 left in the half. That scoring play did little to deter Liberty County. The Bulldogs answered with a pair of touchdowns Marlowes 20-yard reception and Dusty Youngs 3-yard plunge before halftime to take a 13-point lead into the locker room through two quarters. The Bulldogs nished the rst half with 228 yards of offense, including 102 rushing yards by Marlowe. Chipley had 127 yards of offense before halftime. Finch narrowly missed a few big plays with his arm and nished the game 9for-21 passing for 117 yards. Pitts had three receptions for 76 yards.

Divorces There were no reported divorces By JESSICA M c CARTHY 747-5073 | @PCNHJessica jmccarthy@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY A new pre-kindergarten program started this week, and things are a little different over there. The Science and Discovery Center of Northwest Floridas board of directors wanted a pre-K program, and now Sue Blei and Pam Vosbrink, the pre-school instructors, teach about 20 students and are ready for a few more. Blei said they can take up to 32 3to 5-year-olds, so slots are still available and Vosbrink said their students really enjoy the program. They dont cry coming into school; they only cry when its time to leave, Vosbrink said. They dont want to go. She said the students work on ABCs, motor and ne-motor skills, counting, social skills and other skills with a science spin. Blei said the program they use, Science Start, was chosen by the board, but both she and Vosbrink love it. It was developed for science, for pre-schoolers, Blei said. To that, we get to add all the things that we as pre-school professionals already know need to be part of the curriculum program. She said the program has a more structured plan for the morning and a more creative afternoon. Some children only do mornings, others are there in the afternoon and some are allday students. Were the total package because its a loving, kind environment from the two of us, but also a lot of exposure to academics that are age appropriate, Blei said. Another skill they teach is pre-reading, which includes writing words as the teachers speak them to the students. Blei said that begins the association process between the sounds they hear and the written version of words they understand. The rst week of school for these students had an aloha theme, complete with luaus and volcanoes. Vosbrink said the volcanoes gave the students an opportunity to work on their ne-motor skills when shaping the clay and an opportunity to learn about volcanoes. The students learned about the parts of a volcano and increased their vocabulary and language skills. Blei said the aloha week is a prelude to next week, when the children will learn about neighborhoods, families and home. They also will learn about the differences between living and non-living things using the nature walk at the center, then move on to differences between living things such as animals and plants. Its real science, but its on their level, Blei said. They learn about properties of matter, liquid, solid, gas which arent typical pre-school terms. Theres no reason you cant use those terms; they understand the differences, but we do it with experiments and touching things and their involvement. The classroom is a large room broken up into areas where Blei and Vosbrink can separate the children into small groups to work on speci c tasks and projects. Eventually the classroom will include computers with age appropriate science software in addition to the puzzles, trains and even a microscope the children already use. For more information about the program, visit scienceanddiscoverycenter. org or call 850-769-6128. Interested parents are welcome.

The West Nile Virus cases in humans and horses have been on the rise in 2012, and human cases are at their highest levels since West Nile Virus rst was detected in the United States in 1999, according to the CDC. Dr. Tracy Norman, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Large Animal Clinic, suggests protecting horses by vaccinating against the disease and taking measures to prevent mosquito bites. The virus is transmitted by mosquitoes from avian hosts to humans and horses. Both humans and horses are considered dead-end hosts of West Nile Virus, which means it is not contagious from horse to horse or horse to human. If bitten by an infectious mosquito, the virus can multiply in the blood system, cross the blood brain barrier and infect the brain. There, it can cause inammation of the brain, interfering with central nervous system functions. Most horses infected with the virus do not exhibit signs of the disease. For those that do, however, symptoms are similar to other neurologic diseases and can include impairment of basic motor skills (including loss of coordination or asymmetrical weakness, a change in behavior, or drowsiness. Some horses with West Nile may have a fever early in the disease and show symptoms such as sensitivity to touch and sound, and muscle twitching in the face, muzzle and neck. These typical neurologic signs are not always present in infected horses, sometimes infected horses just appear colicky, Norman said. You should always consult with a veterinarian if you suspect a horse of having West Nile Virus. Conrmation of infection is easily diagnosed through a blood test. Then owners and the veterinarian can plan a course of treatment. Norman explained that the main treatment for West Nile is supportive care. Often antiinammatory drugs (such as Banamine, steroids and DMSO) and intravenous uids are used. If the horse is having difculty balancing, a sling can be used to support the horse as it recovers. The idea is to keep the horse healthy so it can ght the virus, Norman said. If the horse is down and cannot get back up on its own, the outlook is pretty bad, Norman said. The mortality rate for West Nile is about 30 to 40 percent. Many infected horses will survive, but many of those will have residual neurological impairment. Not all horses will regain their previous performance levels. Norman stressed that vaccines against West Nile are the best way to prevent infection in horses. While the vaccine is not 100 percent effective at preventing clinical disease, the vaccine can help reduce the severity of the symptoms (because of some preexisting immunity from the vaccine). Vaccinated horses that do become sick with West Nile Virus are in general less sick, requiring less intensive treatment, are sick for shorter periods of time, and have a better chance at making a full recovery than unvaccinated horses. Vaccination against West Nile Virus is recommended by the American Association of Equine Practitioners as one of the core vaccines that all horses should receive. Additionally, horse owners can take steps to reduce the amount of mosquitoes around their facilities by eliminating standing water; keeping stalls and pens clean; using equine mosquito repellents, y sheets, and y masks; and placing fans inside stalls (mosquitoes have difculty ying in wind). The vaccines provide year-long coverage, but in some areas like Texas, with long summers and short, mild winters, some veterinarians will give the vaccine twice a year. Norman recommends vaccinating horses that have not yet been vaccinated this year to help protect horses through the fall mosquito months.

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 The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to x it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, D.C. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to x it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, D.C., area and view it as a xer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can x it and x it for good. All these politicians have xed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him xed. The results are the same in both situations. Then my wife made this observation. If these politicians are so all red up about xing problems, I would like to show them our plumbing problem. Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only x hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The rst thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They rmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there always are those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more bene t than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally signi cant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal rami cations. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

NO. 5 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12 (Legislative) Ballot Title: STATE COURTS. Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitu tion relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further re adopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commis sion, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to This revision requires Senate of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take If the Senate votes not to the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to the same vacancy was not by the Senate. For the purpose of the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed and will take The Judicial Commission is an independent commis sion created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are until formal charges are by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are the formal charges and all further proceed ings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such would remain during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request of the Judicial Com mission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution. Full Text: ARTICLE V JUDICIARY SECTION 2. Administration; practice and procedure. (a) The supreme court shall adopt rules for the practice and pro cedure in all courts including the time for seeking appellate review, the administrative supervision of all courts, the transfer to the court having jurisdiction of any proceeding when the jurisdiction of another court has been improvidently invoked, and a requirement that no cause shall be dismissed because an improper remedy has been sought. The supreme court shall adopt rules to allow it the court and the district courts of appeal to submit questions relating to military law to the federal Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces for an advisory opinion. Rules of court may be repealed by general law that expresses the policy behind the repeal enacted by two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the legislature. The court may readopt the repealed rule only in conformity with the public policy expressed by the legislature. If the legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, the rule may not be readopted thereafter without prior approval of the legislature. (b) The chief justice of the supreme court shall be chosen by a major ity of the members of the court; shall be the chief administrative of the judicial system; and shall have the power to assign justices or judges, including consenting retired justices or judges, to temporary duty in any court for which the judge is and to delegate to a chief judge of a judicial circuit the power to assign judges for duty in that circuit.

B10| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, August 29, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By ROBERT ORDONAMonster Contributing Writer Savvy job seekers know how important choosing the right words is when communicating with prospective employers. But what about nonverbal communication? You could be saying how great you are, but your body could be giving your true feelings away,Ž says Alison Craig, image consultant and author of Hello Job! How to Psych Up, Suit Up & Show Up. Mark Bowden, author of Winning Body Language, agrees with Craig „ and with the highly regarded Mehrabian communication study, which found that if whats coming out of your mouth doesnt match what your body is saying, your audience is more likely to believe your body. Heres some expert advice on how to effectively let your body do the talking in a j ob interview:Making a great entranceCraig and Bowden agree that the interview starts even before you get to the interview room. You dont know who could be in the parking lot with you, looking at you from a window or standing next to you in the elevator,Ž says Craig. Your body should tell anyone who might be watching that youre confident and calm. Its not the time to be frantically searching through your portfolio for printouts of your resume.ŽShow your good sideHiring managers often ask receptionists for their take on people who come to the office for interviews, so Bowden suggests letting them observe you without letting on that you know they are watching. Sit with your profile to them,Ž he says. It makes them feel comfortable, and if theyre comfortable, theyre more likely to form a good impression.Ž Craig suggests trying to predict the direction your interviewer will come from, so you can sit facing that direction. It will make the greeting more graceful.First impressionsWhile waiting, dont hunch your shoulders or tuck your chin into your chest, which will make you seem closed off. Sit with your back straight and your chest open „ signs you are confident and assertive. But dont take this to the extreme,Ž cautions Bowden. Elongating your legs or throwing your arm across the back of the chair can make you appear too comfortable, even arrogant.Ž Also, says Craig, dont have so much stuff on your lap that you are clumsily moving everything aside when you are called. You want to rise gracefully, without dropping things, so you can smoothly greet the person coming to get you.Shake it „ dont break itJob interviews mean handshakes „ so what are the secrets to the perfect handshake? The overly aggressive shake, or death grip,Ž as Craig calls it, can be as off-putting as the limp handshake, so practice with a friend before the interview to find the right balance. You are going to be shaking with your right hand, so prepare by arranging your belongings on your left side. Offer your hand with the palm slightly up so your interviewers hand covers yours. Its a sign that youre giving them status,Ž says Bowden. And never cover the other persons hand with the hand youre not shaking with „ it can be interpreted as a sign of domination.Important stepsThe walk to the interview is the perfect time to use body language. Always follow that person, whether the person is the hiring manager or an assistant, to show you understand the protocol. You are saying, Im the job candidate, and youre the company representative „ I follow your lead.Ž Bowden adds that you should try to mirrorŽ that persons tempo and demeanor. It shows you can easily fit into the environment,Ž he says.At the interview deskIn the interview room, its OK to place a slim portfolio on the table, especially if you will be presenting its contents, but put you r other belongings on the floor beside you. Holding a briefcase or handbag on your lap will make you seem as though you are trying to create a barrier around yourself, cautions Craig. Avoid leaning forward, which makes you appear closed off, Bowden says. Instead, he advises sitting up straight and displaying your neck, chest and stomach area „ to signal that you are open. When gesturing with your hands, Craig says, you always should keep them above the desk and below the collarbone. Any higher and youre going to appear frantic,Ž she says. Bowden advises that you keep your hands even lower, in what he calls the truth planeŽ „ an area that fans out 180 degrees from your navel. Gesturing from here communicates that youre centered, controlled and calm „ and that you want to help,Ž he says. Its fine to sit about a foot away from the table so that your gestures are visible, he says.Looking for a job?

I married Lucas Taylor from here, and I knew wed be living here forever, Taylor said. Holmes County is an excellent place to raise a family. Shortly after graduating from HCHS, she went on to Chipola College to become a certi ed registered nurse and worked shortly in the labor and delivery section of Jackson Hospital in Marianna. At that time they didnt have a bachelors program, so I went on to the University of Florida, Taylor said. I came back and worked for a while at Doctors Memorial Hospital and then went back to get my masters degree from the University of South Alabama. She said she specializes in womens health.

Our shelters are on standby, said Washington County Emergency Management Coordinator Lynne Abel. Right now, were at Level 2 and monitoring the situation. At this point we dont anticipate needing the shelters. If the Washington County School District buildings were not going to be needed as shelters, then it would be up to the school administration to determine whether or not school would be held after the storm arrived, Abel said. The storm was anticipated to make landfall Tuesday. School was let out at 1 p.m. Monday in anticipation of the storm, and school of cials would meet with county emergency of cials to make further determinations. Although Isaac was tracking to the west on Monday, the emergency of cials still were concerned with the squall lines that might accompany the tropical storm. We are going to see some rain, and it could be heavy, Abel said. The worst-case scenario is 8-12 inches. Flash ooding could mean closed roads, downed trees and power lines, of cials said.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, August 29, 2012 lor said. Theres a reward at the end of the schooling, and enjoy the journey. Most of her strength, she said, was derived from the love and support of her family and church family. I couldnt have done it without the support of my family, she said. Thered be no way I could nish both my bachelors and masters degree without the support of both my home family and my church family. Taylor said she enjoys her job and her 2-year-old son, Eli Taylor. I enjoy working here, and hopefully well be here for years to come, she said.Patrick HawkinsDr. Patrick Hawkins had the potential of being a great doctor even before he graduated from HCHS, according to Dr. Leisa Bailey of Bailey Family Practice in Bonifay. He began helping Bailey in her clinic toward the end of his high school career, Hawkins said, and he knew health was the area he wanted to be in. I didnt dream of becoming a doctor, I just knew I wanted to be in the health care eld, Hawkins said. I thought that becoming a doctor was a too much to dream of become a reality. He went from Chipola College in Marianna to the University of Florida in Gainesville and earned his degree in nutrition. After that, he was accepted to Florida State University, specializing in rural medicine. He then accepted family medicine residency in Marianna for four years and would nd himself working in the emergency room at Doctors Memorial Hospital after talking with Bailey. While in college, Hawkins received a scholarship from Doctors Memorial Hospital, and that was one of the deciding factors to return home. It helped out, Hawkins said. They took a chance on me with the scholarship. It showed me that they cared. Coming home was everything he thought it would be, he said. It feels good to be home, treating the people you know, he said. You get a little more pride taking care of the people you grew up and around. Its fullling to come back and support and help the town you grew up in. He laughed a little when he said Bailey was always encouraging him to come home. When I was volunteering at her clinic before I left, she was always joking about how shed always hire me when I got back, he said. I didnt think much about it then, but it was cool. His biggest support, he said, came from his parents. I knew I wanted to go into the medical eld, but I wasnt sure if I could go as far as a doctor, he said. They always encouraged me to shoot for the best and see where it landed me. Hawkins said he was hoping to go to medical school, but it seemed like an unlikely dream. It was so competitive seeing all those people going for the same thing, he said. It was discouraging, but my parents kept their faith in me. Another pillar of strength, he said, came from his wife and in-laws during his rst year of medical school. Having a wife at home made it a lot less stressful, he said. He said he ended up waiting until later in life to have a family, but now he has a 2-year-old son, Jaxon Hawkins, and another son on the way. It was frustrating to come back for social events and have to see everyone you knew getting married and having kids, he said. Now it seems weve got it in overdrive. He said he was glad to have been able to travel, gain experience and then bring it home with him. Im right where I want to be, he said. With my wide range of experience, I feel it makes me a better doctor. I love working here and being the team physician for Holmes County. Its been a lot of fun.Kelly SmithChipleys Kelly A. Smith, optometrist for The Eye Center of North Floridas Chipley ofce, said she always knew shed be in the medical eld, but the deciding factor came when she had a life-changing experience while she was only in middle school. When I was in middle school, I had been tted with a pair of glasses I didnt even know I needed, Smith said. It was then I was able to see the world in a new light, literally. I didnt know my life was a blur until things were made clear and I could see there were leaves to the trees and blades of grass; this life-changing experience made me realize that I wanted to share that experience with others. Smith grew up in the area and graduated from Graceville High School. She then moved forward to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Huntingdon College in Alabama and her doctor of optometry degree from the University of Alabama in Birmingham. According to her biography, she is board-certied and a member of the American Optometric Association. She is also a captain in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and practices optometry at Eglin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach. At rst I had no intention of coming home, Smith said. I moved to Dothan (Ala.), and it was far enough from home that when I got a chance to come home it made me more than glad to be back. Smith said she much preferred a small town. I like the small town feel of being able to connect with my patients on a personal level, Smith said. Treating these patients and knowing Ill see them again is like treating family. She said she was lucky to have the best of both worlds being a satellite company in a rural area. Its a small ofce in a small clinic, but because were a satellite company weve got access to leading specialists and technology, Smith said. The most fullling moments of her career is when she can share the experience she had with others, she said. When those adolescents and teenagers come in and dont know they even have problems, then watching as they see the world clearly for the rst time, she said. Thats my favorite time; to show them what the worlds like with and without glasses. A close second is being able to detect and correct severe cataracts, she said. It all goes back to working and living with our community, she said. Smith and her husband, Forrest, run a basketball program called the CROSSover at the old Roulhac Middle School gym in Chipley. Weve got kids that are with the basketball group that come in, Smith said. Its them putting on the glasses and watching them cry because they can see. Its instant gratication of being able to see, and its very touching. The most frustrating times, she said, are when nothing can be done. In school they say that the hardest people to treat is your family, she said. Since theyre all family to me, if one of them should come in and they have something that cant be treated and theres nothing that can be done, then its very frustrating and painful. She said if theres anyone wishing to go into optometry, they should. Although at times its stressful, its very worth it, she said. I cant imagine a better profession. If I looked back at what I wanted, practicing in Chipley has far exceeded my expectations.Jason HatcherDr. Jason Daniel Hatcher, family practitioner, is a native of Bonifay and believes his greatest asset is his family, which is why hes home. I really enjoyed science, Hatcher said. I contemplated medicine then went to college to become a chemical engineer. Hatcher said he grew up in Caryville, where his family owned a grocery store. After graduating from HCHS in 1988, he went on to Chipola Junior College and then on to Florida State University. After I received my bachelors degree from FSU in biochemistry and biology, I decided I wanted more then my bachelors degree, Hatcher said. I couldve continued in chemical engineering, but then I knew that Id either end up working at a college or at some port city lab. I decided medicine would be much better. He then went on to Nova Southeastern University College of Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, receiving a degree in osteopathic medicine. After earning his medical SECOND PUBLIC HEARING NOTICEHolmes County is applying to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) for a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) under the neighborhood revitalization category in the amount of $750,000.00.

I had an interest in working in a smaller area, though I hadnt started with my home town in mind, Hatcher said. After being home for 10 years, theres been some upsides and some downsides. Being around people Ive known my whole life, close to my parents and being in a good environment to raise my child is wonderful. He said he enjoys being so close to his family. Allowing his daughter, Caroline Elizabeth, to visit her grandparents often has been a blessing. I have a feeling of providing a needed service to my family and my community, Hatcher said. It feels pretty good. The downside, he said, is there is no anonymity. I go into Wal-Mart and see at least 10 people I know, Hatcher said. At least two of those 10 want to discuss medical issues they or someone they know are having. Because they know me they want to work outside of the of ce, which isnt fair to the other patients. He said another disadvantage of working in a small town practice is that there arent any specialists nearby. Its discouraging sometimes because I have patients that dont go to specialists Ive referred them to because they dont have the gas to make such a long trip, Hatcher said. And then theres Medicaid, when specialist such as orthopedics wont provide standard care unless a bones broken. There were a few things he missed about being in a bigger area, too, he said, such as having a large variety of restaurants, movie theaters and other conveniences. I would also get a lot more money working in a large area, but I get more then enough working here, he said. Besides, its the safety and good environment for my child versus the larger area, and thats no contest. My family comes rst and foremost. will work as fast and as safely as possible. We will also be in touch with neighboring utilities to make sure we can call in extra workers if necessary. Smith said all Gulf Power employees have a hurricane assignment and that the company reviews detailed storm plans during the year. We also go each year to help other areas of the Southeast when they have hurricanes, so we re ne our plans each year based on different scenarios, Smith said. This experience pays off when we have a storm in Northwest Florida. Despite this planning, Smith reminded customers hurricanes can cause lengthy power outages up to two to three weeks for major storms. The change in storm track could mean less rain north of the Florida Panhandle, which would be good, Abel said. If the region upstream of Holmes and Washington counties got heavy rain, the result could be river ooding on top of the ash ooding that is expected. There is also a possibility that Washington County could have to provide host shelter to residents from the coastal regions of the Panhandle, Abel said. However, the shelters the county has available should be suf cient for that without using the school buildings. In Holmes County, of cials also were meeting Monday afternoon to discuss school closings and weather preparedness. These things are so unpredictable, Abel said. This is a very large storm, and it covers a very large area, and we are expecting some intensi cation in strength. The timing of Tropical Storm Isaac has some beach-side business owners unsure of results for the Labor Day weekend, the last big tourism weekend of summer. The storm is expected to be long gone by then, giving way to a typical late summer weather pattern, but regardless of the sunny skies expected next weekend, the nancial impact of Isaac might linger, some fear. Weve been very strong this week, and it doesnt seem to have affected the bookings for this weekend, said Jack Bishop, Panama City Beach restaurant owner. This weekend has been pretty good because its been good weather other than that little shock of rain. Bishop said he still has the regular amount of employees scheduled for the week before Labor Day, as of now. Because of the nature of the restaurant business, he could react with information disseminated as late as Monday. For the lodging industry, Isaac could have a more damaging effect next weekend. CJ Ryan, marketing representative for Grand Panama and Origin Beach Resorts, said business this weekend was not dampened, but his clients already have begun to feel the results of Isaac for the coming weekend. Since the cone has us dead-centered, they have received a ton of cancellations for the weekend, Rain said, referring to the National Hurricane Centers forecast path for Isaac. It just hypes the danger of it. When you see a big red cone over where youre thinking of going for vacation, you arent going to go. Before the cone of uncertainty, as Ryan called it, was on top of Bay County, bookings were around 85 to 90 percent, but occupancy could drop to around half of what they had expected, depending on how soon the storm blows through. The potential for a landfall as soon as Tuesday prompted evacuations along a wide area of the Gulf Coast and sent people out to stock up on staples. I would suspect anyone selling staples needed during an emergency ashlights, batteries, generators is doing a brisk business, said Washington County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett.

We hear a lot about new beginnings when the new calendar year rolls around, but I always feel that this time of the year brings more new beginnings. With fall comes the new school year and all its activities, football, drama events, new teachers, new classes. For many college students it means a new residence. I have just seen three of my granddaughters getting settled into dorms or apartments. With the fall election, well see many county, state and national offices being filled with new faces. Some civic clubs which dont meet during summer months will resume activities in September. I have just been involved in planning Bonifay Garden Clubs activities for the 2012/13 club year. Well begin our new year with a luncheon meeting at Doctors Memorial Board room on September 14. Another organization which Im involved in is the Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation. And we are already deep into plans for our BIG fall event, the haunted hospital. Ever since the new hospital was occupied in 2008, the old building has sat vacant waiting and hoping some other organization will purchase or lease it for use as, perhaps, a retirement home, assisted living facility or something useful. Last fall, the building was brought to life for 8 nights in October as an attraction for Halloween. We called it OUTBREAK and it was a howling success, surpassing our wildest expectations. We are rated among the tops for screams and laughter on the www. floridahauntedhouses. com website. No town in Florida closer than Busch Gardens in Tampa or Orlandos Disney World were on the list. This year, the planning committee composed of some of the hospital employees and some of our foundation members have already been hard at work. These creative people have in place plans to outdo last year with our theme, PHOBIK 2012. What are you afraid of? The event will be held on Fridays and Saturdays the last three weekends in October and Halloween night from 6 11 p.m. each night. Last year from the first night and throughout the event, the wait time to get in was an hour or more. Yet, the people waited in line in a party spirit with no unpleasant incidents. In order to alleviate the long lines this year, the team is formulating a plan whereby tickets may be purchased on line in advance for early entry into the event. These will be admitted before 7:30 until all advance tickets for that evening have been honored. (Of course, if you are unable to arrive between 6 and 7:30, your ticket will still be honored as general admission.) In addition to on-line ticket purchases, and group ticketing, we are taking advantage of the carnival-like atmosphere and will have other things to occupy the wait time. Local non-profit groups like the Bonifay Fire Department, Holmes County EMS Unit, and Doctors Memorial Auxiliary will have food and drinks available. A childrens game area is also planned as the attraction is not recommended for children under 13 unless accompanied by an adult. As the time draws nearer, you will see more about PHOBIK What are you afraid of, but you may go to the website, www. PHOBIK.org for more details and to reserve tickets which will be $10 per person. Being a person with a couple of real phobias, I have trouble getting into the spirit of Halloween and the scarey stuff. But it is amazing how these sorts of things have caught on in the past few years. I am happy to be out front doing my part for this worthy cause enjoying the crisp fall air, meeting and greeting locals as well as those from outlying areas such as Dothan, Hartford, DeFuniak Springs, Marianna, Cottondale, Chipley, and Panama City. Wednesday, August 29, 2012A news bulletin begins the prattle column today. The Heritage of Washington County Book, issued in 2006 and out of print for more than two years, is now available once again. Your writer arranged for this fourth printing and the books are at my home. Call me at 638-1016 to obtain your copy at the original price of $64.20 or $72 when mailed. The email address is: perry1000@ bellsouth.net. At the 107th annual Brock Reunion on June 16, many commitments for purchasing the additional books were made, thus the order went out and the books are now here. The Prattler came to the conclusion during the assimilation and distribution of The Heritage Book, that a family reunion was a good source for obtaining histories and stories for publication, as well as an excellent sales prospect when the book was completed. Family Reunions and The Heritage Book brings to mind one of the most recently established family gatherings in this county. One that was designed as an opportunity for one large family consisting of a husband and wife, along with the twelve offspring, to maintain contact with each other. It was in the early 1970s when the John Alex Wells and Arleva Cook Wells Family held the rst get together, of cially labeled a reunion. It was held at the home of the couple, consisting of an outside picnic type lunch, where, from the beginning until the present, all the children have faithfully supported and attended the family event. The mother, Arleva, died Nov. 9, 1979 with the father, John Alex, passing away on May 5, 1981. The oldest son, Lee E. Wells died December 18, 1990 with his wife, Alyne, dying since Lees death. Next to pass away was son, Parker Wells, whose date of death was Dec. 14, 1997. His wife, Lois, has also died. Since the above book was published, daughter, Arkie Wells Revell, has died, with her husband, Percy, preceding her death. The Aug. 11, 2012 Alex Wells Family Reunion, was held without another family member, with the passing of the daughter, Mary Wells Perdue, who died about a month before the special day. Since the death of the parents, the Second Saturday in August Wells Family Reunion is now being held at the home of son, Carlton Wells and wife, Marion Wells, also on Wells Road. The gathering place is now held in a spacious, air-conditioned social hall, which Carlton has dubbed the barn. The story of this family is recorded on pages 364 and 365 in The Heritage of Washington County Book mentioned above. The story of this family, beginning with the elopement and marriage without the consent of either parent, is a heartwarming one. The signal for the prospective bride to meet the proposed groom was signaled with him whistling the tune Red Wing. They barely made the get-a-way, but successful made it to Dothan for the marriage. This was on August 9, 1920. The family history will show that in March of 1929, the young family was forced out of Caryville with the ooding of the Choctawhatchee River, losing practically all of their earthly possessions. Many other residents of the town suffered the same fate, being forced to evacuate and ee the ooding borders of the raging river. All surviving siblings, including Rufus Wells, John Alex Wells, Jr., Wilma Wells Stubbs, Imogene Wells Birge, Harrell Wells, Carlton Wells, Joel Wells and Annie Lou Wells Richard were in attendance. A host of second and third generations of Wells offspring added to the full house of kinsmen for the joyous occasion. Rufus Eldeen Wells, born June 29, 1926, is the third in the sequence of the Alex and Arleva Wells children. He is now the senior member of this family and, in fact, is the oldest grandchild of the paternal grandparents, James Thomas Wells and Hannah Malinda Brock Wells. Next in the order of grandchildren is the writers brother, Jim Wells, who is only a month short of Rufus age. The shocking news is that yours truly could ascend to that status since I am third in the age order. Rufus lost his wife, Mary, a few years ago. His only child, Thedford Alex Wells, passed away suddenly last year. He continues to reside in Ocala, Florida where his granddaughters, Amy, Alexis, Stephanie and Rachel, continue to administer to his needs. He retired after 30 years service at the Ocala Star Banner newspaper. In addition to Rufus, medical problems continue to plague other family members, including John Alex, Jr. Wilma and Harrell. Marion, Carltons wife, has experienced some medical issues during the past year, but stands strong and insists that the established reunion be carried out at their home. The 36 or so years this family has come together for a reunion does not come near the longevity of other family gatherings, but the loyalty, steadfastness and a determination to keep the family ties together is heart warming, considering all circumstances which could befall a family of this magnitude. See you all next week.HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Rufus Wells dressed in his U. S. Army uniform which he proudly wore as a member of the U. S.

For many college students it means a new residence. I have just seen three of my granddaughters getting settled into dorms or apartments. With the fall election, well see many county, state and national offices being filled with new faces. Some civic clubs which dont meet during summer months will resume activities in September.

For the fifth consecutive year, Florida has expanded participation and continued to see performance growth on the ACT. Floridas minority students also improved their scores across all subject areas. The 2012 ACT Condition of College & Career Readiness report shows in keeping with the trend during the past five years, Florida increased the number of graduates taking the ACT while also increasing average scores in all subject areas of the test. Although national scores either slightly decreased or remained unchanged, Florida saw small increases in every subject area and the overall composite score. Florida students made gains toward the national average in each subject area in 2012. Average ACT scores nationwide were mostly unchanged from 2011 to 2012, with the only change in English, where average scores decreased by one-tenth of a point. Florida has a larger proportion of minority students taking the ACT than in the nation. Floridas minority students also experienced an increase in average ACT scores across all subject areas. About 56.4 percent of Floridas ACT test takers are minority students, compared to 35.9 percent nationwide. Florida has considerably larger percentages of black and Hispanic students taking the ACT than the nation. In 2012, black students represented 24 percent of Florida test takers, compared to 13.3 percent for the nation. Hispanic students represented 26.2 percent of Florida test takers, compared to 14.1 percent for the nation. During the past five years, Florida has experienced substantial growth in the number of minority students taking the ACT. Black test takers have increased by 26 percent, Hispanics by 45 percent, American Indians by 8 percent and Asians by 15 percent. Floridas minority students experienced increases in average ACT composite scores from 2011 to 2012.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, August 29, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection By STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Deer hunters will tell you there has been quite a change in hunting over the past 30 to 40 years in Florida. Decades ago the majority of deer hunters used dogs and still-hunting was the exception. The roles have reversed for several reasons but as stillhunting has become more popular, particularly hunting from tree stands, injuries and deaths from tree stand accidents are more common. George Warthen, a hunter safety coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said there are common sense things any hunter who uses a tree stand can do to avoid a problem. First and foremost, only use stands that are certi ed by the Treestand Manufacturers Association. All of your stands sold in major stores today carry the TMA certi cation, Warthen said. That means the stand has been properly engineered and manufactured. He said homemade tree stands built in someones garage or back lot should be thrown out, regardless of the emotional attachment. Warthen said most major outdoor stores sell full-body harnesses. He said every hunter who uses a tree stand should wear one. A full-body harness should be worn and attached to the tree before you go up the tree, until your feet are back on the ground, he said. A full-body harness wont keep you from a fall but worn and properly adjusted, they will keep you in the tree, until you can let yourself down. They are a lifesaver. A hunters attention should always be focused solely on getting into a stand, and back down. For that reason, Warthen said hunters always should use a haul line to raise and lower bows and rearms. He said it also is important that rearms be loaded only after a person is safely secured in a tree stand. While some hunters like to leave their homemade ladder stand in the woods from one season to the next, Warthen said thats not a good idea. These type stands fall under the homemade category and they are simply not as safe as a professionally made stand. Not only that, stands left in the outdoors may have wood or boards that rot and screws and nails that may back out. For hunters who choose not to use a tree stand, Warthen said there are a variety of pop-up ground blinds available. The blinds are relatively inexpensive and can be set up virtually anywhere. He said they also are more creature comfort friendly, allowing hunters to avoid wind and rain. Similar to boating, Warthen said its a good idea to have a hunting plan. A hunting plan is as simple as telling someone where you will be hunting.Tree stand injuries easily avoidable He came up andCHOMPEDArea residents catch 13-foot gators on 18-foot boat By TINA HARBUCK654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Armed with a spinning rod, a rope, a huge treble hook and a bang stick, they got their gator. Capt. Allen Staples and Chris Davis went gator hunting last week in Walton County and snatched a 702-pound alligator that measured out at 13 feet, 2 inches. He was big, said Staples who bagged a couple of 11-footers last year. The two guys had gone out Wednesday evening in search of a gator and found one, but they couldnt get it hooked. We got within 50 yards of it, but it kept going down, Staples said. After four or ve hours of hunting and tossing, they gave up. On Thursday they went back out to the same pond and there he was, in the same place, Staples said. Davis hooked the gator with the spinning reel and he went down. But at that point, they had him on the line. They dont run, Staples said. They just sink down to the bottom. They eased over to where the gator was and Davis after about six or seven throws on it was able to snatch him with their homemade treble hook that was attached to a rope. Its hard in the dark to see where he goes down, Staples said. Davis nally got the treble hook, made of offshore marlin hooks, in the gators front right leg. At that point, he took off, Staples said. He drug the boat around the lake. He pretty much did what he wanted to, said Davis who was holding on to the rope with his bare hands. I tried to be as easy as I could, but he was leaving. A few minutes into the ght, He came up and chomped stuck his head out of the water about up to his shoulders, Staples said. That was pretty intense. He took your breath away when he popped up, Davis said. Not long after, the gator went down and started rolling, Staples said. After a lot of tugging and pulling, they got close enough to get him with the bang stick. Then it took another hour to get him in the boat, Staples said. That was the hardest part, Davis added. The 13-plus foot gator went from one end of the boat to the other, in the 18-foot aluminum boat. I had a couple of 11-footers last year, and I thought he was about the same size, Staples said. But once they started hauling him in, Thats when we realized just how big he was. He was just bigger all the way around, Staples said. One of the boat captains at the docks that got a glimpse of the gator later that day said it was the biggest one hes ever seen and that it was about 2-feet across at the jowls. Although the ght got a little intense at times, Davis said, it was an awful lot of fun and Id certainly do it again.

The gator almost lled up the 18-foot aluminum boat. By TINA HARBUCK654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Hes more than hooked on shing. Its in the blood, says Capt. Chris Scho eld of the charter boat One Mor. Scho eld, at 27, is a fourthgeneration sherman. He got his rst taste of shing working along side his dad, Bruce Scho eld, aboard the Shooting Star with uncle Capt. David Rojas. I was about knee high to a grasshopper when I used to go along with dad, Chris said aboard the 32-foot G&S six-passenger boat. At age 9 he caught a 47-pounder aboard the Shooting Star with his uncle David. That kind of got me hooked, he said. They missed getting it into the Destin Fishing Rodeo by days. He caught the sh in November, missing out on the October shing tournament. Chris shed with David all through high school. After school he went to work as a second mate aboard the Anastasia with Capt. Tony Davis, and from there he advanced to rst mate on the Big John with Capt. Todd Allen. Capt. Allen bought the One Mor three years ago, and thats when Chris stepped into the captains chair. Its in the blood, he said. I worked in a grocery store for a little while and did a little bit of plumbing. I knew that wasnt it. I always came back to shing. The One Mor, docked on the harbor behind the Red Door Saloon, specializes in live bait shing. In addition to live baits, were going out there with lighter tackle, he said. Fishermen used to take big 9/0 reels with 200 pound test line. Chris says the 9/0 has been replaced by a 4/0. Were out there to entertain the family, not out there to ll the box, he said. But, We are out there to catch enough for dinner. Bottom shing trips are his most popular. I like grouper shing, Chris said. However, the biggest sh hes ever helped to haul in was a mako shark that weighed about 1,000 pounds. Scho eld said they caught the shark while cobia shing near Sandestin. We got a photo of him jumping with condos in the background, Scho eld said. After about an hour ght, they got the shark to the boat and cut him loose. Scho elds dream is to one day have a boat about the size of the Big John, a 52-footer. Todd has taught me a lot, Scho eld said, like where to nd sh and how to hold up on them. My dad taught me a lot of my knots. Hopefully in the next couple of years Ill have my own, he said. And I hope to have a nice fruitful shing career. But hes not in a rush. I think shing will always be here, Scho eld said. Its more about the entertainment aspect than catching 1,000 pounds of sh. Its the best of ce Ive found so far, he said.One Mor sherman in the family TINA HARBUCK | The LogChris Scho eld is captain of the One Mor docked on the harbor behind the Red Door Saloon.

Page 7 SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.comWednesday, August 29, 2012 ASectionHolmes downs Graceville in kickoff classic Watson energizes Liberty County in win over ChipleyBy JASON SHOOTHalifax Media BRISTOL Dustin Watsons arrival at Liberty County provides more than just a boost to the passing game. Its also freed up the Bulldogs best athlete, Alex Marlowe, to make plays in space. Both players were instrumental in Liberty Countys 35-28 home win over Chipley Friday night in a preseason football game. Marlowe scored three touchdowns, and Watson passed for two in the Bulldog victory. The two Class 1A schools each enter the regular season next week with high expectations. Chipley, competing in District 3-1A, was the Class 1A state runner-up last fall. Liberty County is competing in District 4-1A and advanced to the Region 2-1A semi nals last year. The Bulldogs looked like they were the team on the rise, however, and Watsons presence at quarterback was a big reason why. Liberty County was a run-heavy team last year that ran into trouble when it faced thirdand-long situations, in particular. Watson showed some ability to extend plays in the offensive back eld, and he looked sharp throwing the football. A senior transfer from R.F. Monroe, Watson completed 5 of 9 passes for 105 yards. Hes going to increase our passing game, said Marlowe, the Bulldogs quarterback last year. Were a lot more balanced now that weve got somebody who can throw the ball out there. Marlowe, who nished with 127 yards on 12 carries, took the ball 41 yards on a sprint around the left side on the games rst play, and he scored a touchdown on a 7yard run seven plays later to give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. Marlowe later added a 20yard touchdown and a 5-yard touchdown run. Hes a great player, Watson said. He carried the team last year, and were going to keep him going. Chipleys standout wingback, Kobe McCrary, was limited to 12 yards on four carries in the rst half but singlehandedly brought the Tigers back into contention in the second half. He scored on impressive touchdown romps of 22, 37 and 34 yards, the last of which pulled Chipley within 35-28 with 2:01 left. He nished the game with 135 yards on 11 carries. Liberty County survived a pair of onside kicks by the Tigers and nally were able to run out the clock and hang on. Its a win my book, Watson said. Chipley turned the ball over on its rst drive, the result of a snap over the head of quarterback Jordan Finch. Liberty Countys Jesse Williams pounced on the ball to give his team possession. The Bulldogs capitalized immediately as Watson threw a beautiful 33-yard touchdown pass to receiver Micheal Robinson for a 14-0 cushion. Chipley halved its de cit early in the second quarter when Liberty County lost track of Tigers receiver Josh Pitts running down eld. Pitts hauled in a Jordan Finch pass and then raced 57 yards untouched to pull the Tigers within 14-7 with 10:27 left in the half. That scoring play did little to deter Liberty County. The Bulldogs answered with a pair of touchdowns Marlowes 20-yard reception and Dusty Youngs 3-yard plunge before halftime to take a 13-point lead into the locker room through two quarters. The Bulldogs nished the rst half with 228 yards of offense, including 102 rushing yards by Marlowe. Chipley had 127 yards of offense before halftime. Finch narrowly missed a few big plays with his arm and nished the game 9for-21 passing for 117 yards. Pitts had three receptions for 76 yards.Chipley 0 7 7 14 28 Liberty County 14 13 0 8 35 LC: Marlowe 7 run (Dawson kick) LC: Robinson 33 pass from Watson (Dawson kick) Chip: Pitts 57 pass from Finch (Dilmore kick) LC: Marlowe 20 pass from Watson (Dawson kick) LC: Young 3 run (kick failed) Chip: McCrary 22 run (Dilmore kick) LC: Marlowe 5 run (Young pass from Watson) Chip: McCrary 37 run (Dilmore kick) Chip: McCrary 34 run (Dilmore kick) INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS RUSHING Chipley: McCrary 11-135, Oliver 8-40, Brock 7-18, Finch 1-1.

Divorces There were no reported divorcesBy JESSICA McCARTHY 747-5073 | @PCNHJessica jmccarthy@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY A new pre-kindergarten program started this week, and things are a little different over there. The Science and Discovery Center of Northwest Floridas board of directors wanted a pre-K program, and now Sue Blei and Pam Vosbrink, the pre-school instructors, teach about 20 students and are ready for a few more. Blei said they can take up to 32 3to 5-year-olds, so slots are still available and Vosbrink said their students really enjoy the program. They dont cry coming into school; they only cry when its time to leave, Vosbrink said. They dont want to go. She said the students work on ABCs, motor and ne-motor skills, counting, social skills and other skills with a science spin. Blei said the program they use, Science Start, was chosen by the board, but both she and Vosbrink love it. It was developed for science, for pre-schoolers, Blei said. To that, we get to add all the things that we as pre-school professionals already know need to be part of the curriculum program. She said the program has a more structured plan for the morning and a more creative afternoon. Some children only do mornings, others are there in the afternoon and some are allday students. Were the total package because its a loving, kind environment from the two of us, but also a lot of exposure to academics that are age appropriate, Blei said. Another skill they teach is pre-reading, which includes writing words as the teachers speak them to the students. Blei said that begins the association process between the sounds they hear and the written version of words they understand. The rst week of school for these students had an aloha theme, complete with luaus and volcanoes. Vosbrink said the volcanoes gave the students an opportunity to work on their ne-motor skills when shaping the clay and an opportunity to learn about volcanoes. The students learned about the parts of a volcano and increased their vocabulary and language skills. Blei said the aloha week is a prelude to next week, when the children will learn about neighborhoods, families and home. They also will learn about the differences between living and non-living things using the nature walk at the center, then move on to differences between living things such as animals and plants. Its real science, but its on their level, Blei said. They learn about properties of matter, liquid, solid, gas which arent typical pre-school terms. Theres no reason you cant use those terms; they understand the differences, but we do it with experiments and touching things and their involvement. The classroom is a large room broken up into areas where Blei and Vosbrink can separate the children into small groups to work on speci c tasks and projects. Eventually the classroom will include computers with age appropriate science software in addition to the puzzles, trains and even a microscope the children already use.

The West Nile Virus cases in humans and horses have been on the rise in 2012, and human cases are at their highest levels since West Nile Virus rst was detected in the United States in 1999, according to the CDC. Dr. Tracy Norman, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Large Animal Clinic, suggests protecting horses by vaccinating against the disease and taking measures to prevent mosquito bites. The virus is transmitted by mosquitoes from avian hosts to humans and horses. Both humans and horses are considered dead-end hosts of West Nile Virus, which means it is not contagious from horse to horse or horse to human. If bitten by an infectious mosquito, the virus can multiply in the blood system, cross the blood brain barrier and infect the brain. There, it can cause inammation of the brain, interfering with central nervous system functions. Most horses infected with the virus do not exhibit signs of the disease. For those that do, however, symptoms are similar to other neurologic diseases and can include impairment of basic motor skills (including loss of coordination or asymmetrical weakness, a change in behavior, or drowsiness. Some horses with West Nile may have a fever early in the disease and show symptoms such as sensitivity to touch and sound, and muscle twitching in the face, muzzle and neck. These typical neurologic signs are not always present in infected horses, sometimes infected horses just appear colicky, Norman said. You should always consult with a veterinarian if you suspect a horse of having West Nile Virus. Conrmation of infection is easily diagnosed through a blood test. Then owners and the veterinarian can plan a course of treatment. Norman explained that the main treatment for West Nile is supportive care. Often antiinammatory drugs (such as Banamine, steroids and DMSO) and intravenous uids are used. If the horse is having difculty balancing, a sling can be used to support the horse as it recovers. The idea is to keep the horse healthy so it can ght the virus, Norman said. If the horse is down and cannot get back up on its own, the outlook is pretty bad, Norman said. The mortality rate for West Nile is about 30 to 40 percent. Many infected horses will survive, but many of those will have residual neurological impairment. Not all horses will regain their previous performance levels. Norman stressed that vaccines against West Nile are the best way to prevent infection in horses. While the vaccine is not 100 percent effective at preventing clinical disease, the vaccine can help reduce the severity of the symptoms (because of some preexisting immunity from the vaccine). Vaccinated horses that do become sick with West Nile Virus are in general less sick, requiring less intensive treatment, are sick for shorter periods of time, and have a better chance at making a full recovery than unvaccinated h orses.   Vaccination against West Nile Virus is recommended by the American Association of Equine Practitioners as one of the core vaccines that all horses should receive. Additionally, horse owners can take steps to reduce the amount of mosquitoes around their facilities by eliminating standing water; keeping stalls and pens clean; using equine mosquito repellents, y sheets, and y masks; and placing fans inside stalls (mosquitoes have difculty ying in wind). The vaccines provide year-long coverage, but in some areas like Texas, with long summers and short, mild winters, some veterinarians will give the vaccine twice a year. Norman recommends vaccinating horses that have not yet been vaccinated this year to help protect horses through the fall mosquito months.  Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

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.

SNYDERThe Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to x it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, D.C. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to x it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, D.C., area and view it as a xer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can x it and x it for good. All these politicians have xed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him xed. The results are the same in both situations. Then my wife made this observation. If these politicians are so all red up about xing problems, I would like to show them our plumbing problem. Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only x hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The rst thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They rmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there always are those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more bene t than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally signi cant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal rami cations. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

NO. 5 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12 (Legislative) Ballot Title: STATE COURTS. Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Commissionmayberepealedbygenerallawenactedbya majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission,andappointmentsbytheGovernorarenotsubjectto ThisrevisionrequiresSenate ofajusticeoftheSupreme Courtbeforetheappointeecantake IftheSenatevotesnotto theappointment,thejudicialnominatingcommissionmust reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to thesamevacancywasnot bytheSenate.Forthepurposeof theSenatemaymeetatanytime.IftheSenatefailstovote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed andwilltake TheJudicial Commissionisanindependentcommis sion created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currentlyundertheconstitution,commissionproceedingsare untilformalchargesare bytheinvestigativepanelofthecommission. Onceformalchargesare theformalchargesandallfurtherproceed ings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Commissionmustmakeavailable,allinformationinthe commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its availabletotheSpeakeroftheHouseofRepresentativesbutprovides thatsuch would remain duringanyinvestigationbythe House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the poweroftheGovernortorequest oftheJudicial Com mission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to theJudicial Commission,andmakesothernonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.

But what about nonverbal communication? You could be saying how great you are, but your body could be giving your true feelings away, says Alison Craig, image consultant and author of Hello Job! How to Psych Up, Suit Up & Show Up. Mark Bowden, author of Winning Body Language, agrees with Craig and with the highly regarded Mehrabian communication study, which found that if whats coming out of your mouth doesnt match what your body is saying, your audience is more likely to believe your body. Heres some expert advice on how to effectively let your body do the talking in a j ob interview:Making a great entranceCraig and Bowden agree that the interview starts even before you get to the interview room. You dont know who could be in the parking lot with you, looking at you from a window or standing next to you in the elevator, says Craig. Your body should tell anyone who might be watching that youre confident and calm. Its not the time to be frantically searching through your portfolio for printouts of your resume.Show your good sideHiring managers often ask receptionists for their take on people who come to the office for interviews, so Bowden suggests letting them observe you without letting on that you know they are watching. Sit with your profile to them, he says. It makes them feel comfortable, and if theyre comfortable, theyre more likely to form a good impression. Craig suggests trying to predict the direction your interviewer will come from, so you can sit facing that direction. It will make the greeting more graceful.First impressionsWhile waiting, dont hunch your shoulders or tuck your chin into your chest, which will make you seem closed off. Sit with your back straight and your chest open signs you are confident and assertive. But dont take this to the extreme, cautions Bowden. Elongating your legs or throwing your arm across the back of the chair can make you appear too comfortable, even arrogant. Also, says Craig, dont have so much stuff on your lap that you are clumsily moving everything aside when you are called. You want to rise gracefully, without dropping things, so you can smoothly greet the person coming to get you.Shake it dont break itJob interviews mean handshakes so what are the secrets to the perfect handshake? The overly aggressive shake, or death grip, as Craig calls it, can be as off-putting as the limp handshake, so practice with a friend before the interview to find the right balance. You are going to be shaking with your right hand, so prepare by arranging your belongings on your left side. Offer your hand with the palm slightly up so your interviewers hand covers yours. Its a sign that youre giving them status, says Bowden. And never cover the other persons hand with the hand youre not shaking with it can be interpreted as a sign of domination.Important stepsThe walk to the interview is the perfect time to use body language. Always follow that person, whether the person is the hiring manager or an assistant, to show you understand the protocol. You are saying, Im the job candidate, and youre the company representative I follow your lead. Bowden adds that you should try to mirror that persons tempo and demeanor. It shows you can easily fit into the environment, he says.At the interview deskIn the interview room, its OK to place a slim portfolio on the table, especially if you will be presenting its contents, but put you r other belongings on the floor beside you. Holding a briefcase or handbag on your lap will make you seem as though you are trying to create a barrier around yourself, cautions Craig. Avoid leaning forward, which makes you appear closed off, Bowden says. Instead, he advises sitting up straight and displaying your neck, chest and stomach area to signal that you are open. When gesturing with your hands, Craig says, you always should keep them above the desk and below the collarbone. Any higher and youre going to appear frantic, she says. Bowden advises that you keep your hands even lower, in what he calls the truth plane an area that fans out 180 degrees from your navel. Gesturing from here communicates that youre centered, controlled and calm and that you want to help, he says. Its fine to sit about a foot away from the table so that your gestures are visible, he says.Looking for a job?
