County Attorney Jeff Goodman said the county was being reimbursed for the cost of rock and the fuel to transport it to those who wished to purchase it within Holmes County. Goodman said he arranged the policy for the county to get out of the business based on possible liability. There were too many possible liability issues that could occur when going on private property to deliver a product, even if the county was being reimbursed, Goodman said. Commissioner Kenneth Williams agreed with Goodman, saying he was uneasy with such a high risk of liability on the county to be entering on to private property. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com ESTO The Esto Town Council approved of the rst reading of Ordinance 13-01 during its April 2 meeting, which will increase the water rates in Esto beginning in May, after the second and nal reading in a public hearing.

Im actually disappointed no one showed up for the public hearing, Town Clerk Jody Sellers said. Youd think people would want to be more involved in whats going on with their town. Chairman Danny Powell said landowner Brady Well made an offer to sell his property to the town, which has been used by visitors as extra parking during the Two-Toe Tom Festival. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Bonifay Kiwanis Club received an update about the Two-Toe Tom Festival from Esto Town Council member Darlene Madden and was entertained by the Carmel Assembly of God choir during its April 3 meeting.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 10, 2013 We need to get out of the rockselling business, Commissioner Bill Parish said. It not only puts us in competition with local companies in the same business, but its too much of a liability. We have no intention of hurting or hindering service to our residents but we shouldnt be involved in the private market place. Merchant disagreed with the decision. I know were not in the business of hauling rock, but its not like dirt, Merchant said. Its not like were hauling it every day. The board also approved of the resignation of Holmes County Development Chair Bud Riviere. The commissioners also approved of abandonment resolution for the Colletti property. After a public hearing, the road abandonment was tabled after local resident Tom Smith said abandoning the road would mean cutting off access to his property. This issue had been brought before by resident Jeffery Johnson at the boards Jan. 16 meeting, requesting to properly vacate a street that dead-ends next to a piece of property he purchased recently from Colletti. Its 8.5 acres of usable land, but if that piece of street was properly vacated it would be 10.6, Johnson said. Landowner Daniel Colletti said the boards old resolution didnt include the lower half to be properly vacated, but he said he was ready to sign the required paper work and pay the $500 to place up the sign. Weve got to run an ad and hold a public hearing at the next meeting in March, Goodman said. Goodman said he and Smith had a discussion and found that it wasnt a matter of access but a matter of devaluing. We had a very good conversation and found that he has access to his property, Goodman said. Ive also explained that all these roads have already been abandoned, but since they were not properly led before, were having to go through this process now. The board agreed to start the process of abandoning Prosser Lane at the request of landowner Steve Rocher, because he has purchased all surrounding land and he is the only one to be impacted by abandoning the road. We have to advertise for a number of weeks in the newspaper. Then, we can hold a public hearing and then take action, Goodman said. The commissioners also approved of advertising and holding a public hearing to continue the 1 percent small county surtax. Parish requested the purchase of two culverts, one for $2,000 and another to temporarily replace a bridge for $4,000. Its just a possible temporary x until other arrangements can be made, Parish said. Parish also said the road department was still receiving calls for culvert permits. We need to let everyone know if theres any issue with a road that they should call our main ofce, Parish said. If theres any issue to do with a road residents should call 547-1119. He also requested a new document be provided to the road foremen so that a more detailed report can be submitted. Merchant encouraged the new commissioners to attend Legislative Day, which was held April 4 at the FSU Turnbull Conference Center in Tallahassee. Goodman also encouraged the new commissioners to attend a convention in Tampa that is arranged speci cally for new commissioners. Hes wanting $36,000 for two acres because its considered in town, Powell said. Its nice of him to let us use his property for the festival, but it is well overpriced. The council agreed to table the offer until the next meeting. Sellers informed the council that they have negotiated with the towns auditor to reduce his invoice from $10,000 to $9,000, which would mean the town would only have $3,000 left owed and the town approved to pay in increments of $500 a month until it was paid. During the March 5 meeting, Sellers told the council she received an invoice from their auditor for $10,000 for his services, but the auditor originally quoted an estimate of between $6,000 and $7,000. The council agreed to draft a letter stating insuf cient services and requesting the return of owed les and to make necessary contacts to hire a new auditor, this time under the prerequisite of having a contract as suggested by Goodman. We were able to nd the engagement letter that was signed stating that his expenses would not exceed $9,000, Sellers said. Our les have been returned, weve got a quote from a new company that is closer that says they will not exceed $6,750, and we should be getting another quote soon so we wont have to deal with this auditor any more. The council was informed that a circuit rider for Florida Rural Water Association gave Sellers a list of bene ts the town is entitled to because the town is a member of the Florida Rural Water Association. Powell also informed them that the Florida Rural Water Association might help paint the water tower. During the previous meeting, Sellers informed them that the town had received a letter from the Department of Environmental Protection stating all the requirements to get the water system up to code was almost complete, but the last requirement was also the most expensive. We need to paint the water tower, and it needs to be done by April 2014, Sellers said. Powell told the council Dollar General had applied to Bonifay for an alcoholic beverage license and a tobacco permit because the corporate branch failed to realize that even though the store had a Bonifay address it was in the town of Esto. After we discussed things and I went over the towns ordinance concerning an alcoholic beverage license and that it just wasnt possible, they were very understanding, Powell said. Now, they did get their tobacco permit, and they are selling tobacco products now. Madden gave an update on the second annual Two-Toe Tom Festival, which will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at John W. Clark Park in Esto. Were still seeing about getting Jerome Jackson to perform for us, Madden said. Hes asking for $600, and were trying to talk him down on the price, especially since hes only going to give us 45 minutes and last year he came for $450 and that was for an hour and a half. She said she got a lot of interest from Swamp People and that it was possible to arrange to have them at next years event. Its getting bigger and bigger, Madden said. Last year, we got between 1,500 and 1,600, and were estimating around 1,800 to 2,000. Weve got to be able to accommodate to the increase. Powell said he agreed, however the town needed to also focus on maintaining what it has and keep in mind that whatever they expand must also be maintained. Even if we break even on this event, we did what we were meant to do, council member James Daniels said. Thats bringing hundreds of people to come and see Esto. Sellers also added that this year there was going to be a vendor with a large assortment of alligator items to purchase as well as a vendor to sell food made from alligators. The next Esto Town Council meeting is set for 7 p.m. on May 7 at the Esto Town Hall.

The festival is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at John W. Clark Park in Esto. We are excited about this years event, Madden said. Weve been working hard to build up Esto and our park is beautiful. We had an attendance of 1,500 and were expecting between 1,800 and 2,000 this year. She said this was an event not only to raise funds for the town but to also give local families and children something to enjoy for free. Events include a car and truck show, horseshoe tournament, dunking booth, Fire truck Exhibit; vendors with wood art, arts and crafts, hand-painted items, childrens clothes, candles, food, cakewalk, face painting and more. Entertainment includes the Springs, Southern Chain Gang and Big and Loud, and she said they were in the process of getting Jerome Jackson. We want to make Esto a better place to live, Madden said. Come out and have yourselves a good time. The meeting was concluded with a presentation of gospel from the Carmel Assembly of God Choir.

Arrested were William Ran Elmore, 31, of Bonifay, on charges of assault, battery, burglary of a conveyance and robbery of a person; Beauregard Lane Shideler, 31, of Bonifay, on charges of battery and robbery of a person; and Linda Marie Bess, 30, of Bonifay, on charges of manufacture of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and providing false information to a law enforcement of cer. Bonifay Police of cers responded to the report of physical altercation in the 600 block of Cotton Street at about 3 p.m. on April 1. Of cers arrived on scene and obtained a statement from the alleged victim and several witnesses, who provided descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle. A canvas of the area led to the discovery of the suspect vehicle at an address on Hamlin Street, just a few blocks away from the incident location, according to the release. Permission to search the residence was obtained by the of cers and the suspects were arrested without incident. During the investigation, a shake and bake methamphetamine lab was discovered in the home. The lab was located in the master bedroom and contained the necessary items to manufacture the illicit drug. Police: Fight report leads to discovery of meth lab WILLIAM ELMORE BEAUREGARD SHIDELER LINDA BESS BONIFAY from page A1 personal property within the Bonifay City limits that is considered unattractive, unhealthy or unsafe to the surrounding residents and visitors and denes penalties, procedures and enforcement allowed for handling such cases. This allows the city to notify the property owner that a clean up is required and if there is no response after a certain period of time then the city will clean it, bill the owner for the clean up and place a lean on the property. Council members reassured local resident Connie Land that this would be the case for the property next door to hers. Land had approached the council because of the property next door was abandoned, burned at some point, had broken windows, doors removed and unmanaged lawn and was frequented by vagrants. Ive got an appraisal coming up to reduce my mortgage and its going to diminish the value of my property, said Land. The council assured Land the new ordinance is there for that reason, and City Superintendent Jack Marell agreed to maintain the lawn once a month, sending the bill to the owner each time. The council also approved a $71,695.76 change order from Hatch Mott MacDonald to the water/sewer project. Hatch Mott MacDonald representative Shakil Amin said this was the last change order before the completion of the project and included the replacement of a stone water pipe, replacement of valves, an electronic gate with restricted access to the Waste Water Facility, pumps, sludge valves and a phone board. Council members approved of council member Roger Brooks request that the city repair broken equipment and dangerous areas to Veterans Park at the estimated cost of $1,500. There are broken swings, a piece of equipment is broken and theres a jagged piece of concrete that needs to be dealt with before a child gets hurt, Brooks said. These kids deserve to have a nice and safe park to play in. Resident Alan Riley came before the council asking for relief with his $222 plumber bill. Riley said there were some issues over the weekend with his plumbing being backed up and with him having guests that weekend he needed immediate relief. He said he called a plumber, and when the issue couldnt be found within his residence, he assumed it was with the new pipe located on city property. However, when a city worker came to investigate, the matter seemed to have been resolved. The next day the issue occurred again, but this time Riley said he was away and his wife called the plumber again, and the plumber went to the citys section and found the clog to remove it. Marell said if they had known about the second clog then they wouldve been able to do something about it. After much discussion the city approved to pay half of the plumbing expenses. Woodham commended Marell on his work helping the residents with water and sewer issues while the water/sewer project continues. The council also approved a Relay For Life Proclamation 13-1, American Cancer Society Relay For Life Proclamation for the City of Bonifay, which proclaims April 19 and 20 as Relay for Life Days. Kim Castriotta, representing the Florida Division of the American Cancer Society, and Greg Barton, representing the Relay For Life of Bonifays team captain for the Bonifay Fire and Rescue and Holmes County EMS, Hose and Stretcher Gang, were present to talk about the upcoming Relay For Life of Bonifay Event to be held from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on April 19 and 20 at Memorial Field in Bonifay. The residents and participants have been wonderful and enthusiastic, warm and caring, and a lot is going on, Castriotta said. One of the committee members has asked about painting the town purple, and she had said she hasnt heard of one being down here before We ask for someone donate big purple bows (in some places its wooden purple people waving on street corners), and what it does is peak peoples curiosity about why theres so much purple. It gets the creative juices owing and everyone thinking about it. It wont be anything excessive, just a few bows, ribbons and signs here and there for that week before Relay. If store owners want to sponsor a ribbon or purple bow on their store front that will also be made available for that week. The council agreed to allow for the purple ribbons and bows to be put on Bonifay street poles and said it would be up to the store owners to give them permission to use their store fronts for purple ribbons and signage. Barton said his team held a boot drive that raised over $2,350 in less than four hours on Saturday, April 6. The next scheduled Bonifay City Council meeting is set for 6 p.m. on April 22 at the Bonifay City Hall.

It was on April 9, 2003, when the Washington County News printed the rst column with the above heading. The management of the paper at that time requested that I join the paper in writing of the many and varied careers of Perry Wells. A short time later, my sister, Hazel Wells Tison, agreed to the request to become the correspondent for the Holmes County TimesAdvertiser, thus The Happy Corner was born. Hazel and I are both honored the newspapers in Washington and Holmes Counties now carry our columns. Accolades and expressions of enjoying the articles just keep on coming. My rst congratulations on becoming ten years old came from Chipley native, Vernon Lewis, now living in Bedford, Virginia. Some of his writings, experiences and re ections of having been reared in Washington County have been used in my writings. I would welcome, and attempt to incorporate any other material which he feels inclined to send. Our friends and associates in the Primitive Baptist Church of several years past, are now living in Monroe, Wisconsin. Jim and Catherine Moseley are near my age, and Jim knows of some of same work experiences which the prattler frequently writes about. He grew up in the Mobile area, worked in a grocery store from daylight to dark for $6 per day, and was happy to receive that. Our Wisconsin friends have recently entertained moving back southward, but it appears now that will not happen. The couple, experienced in carpentry, not only builds houses, but also renovates older properties as well. I label their efforts now as missionary work. They completed a project in Chipley recently before moving to the Dallas, Texas area for another home improvement benevolent job for a deserving family acquaintance. Since their return to Wisconsin, a shipment of cheese came to the Wells household, with a portion being included for my brother, Max and wife, Joyce. We reciprocated by sending them a liberal sampling of homemade cane syrup made by Holmes Countian, Terry Trammell. The Moseleys are now readers of Perrys Prattle and The Happy Corner. In a recent telephone call to thank us for the syrup, he stated; Brother Perry, should you mention the tenth birthday of your column, please include us as ardent readers and two appreciative people in the north land who enjoy both writings. Marshall Steverson may be the last person from Holmes County to report his enjoyment of both Hazel and Perrys writings. In Washington County, that last person is Nita Varnum of Greenhead who told me that she goes immediately to my column to begin her weekly reading. In the past week, a letter was received from Stan Brock and wife, Kay, from Ft. Walton Beach, expressing thanks for the tribute article of December paying respect to Hurdis Brock who passed away in Crestview in late November. His wife, Sal Brock, also died 34 days afterwards. Hurdis was my 1944 Vernon High School Classmate. Aside from being a dear friend, we are also kinsmen as descendants from the pioneer Brock stalwarts, Thomas Jefferson Brock and brother, Joshua Brock. To make the kin more interesting, these two men were married to sisters, Nancy Jane Yates and Syrilda Yates. Kelly Brock, also a descendant from the Brock ancestors told me at the noted annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet of April 4; Perry, I nd myself relating to the experiences of many of the topics you cover in your articles. When asked if he ever collected any junk iron, he assured me that he did and even assisted his father, Clarence Brock, who got into the collecting on a bigger scale. Kelly agrees that the seller was at the mercy of the buyers price and always took, with glee, whatever was offered for the scrap metals. Faithful readers since the inception of Perrys Prattle have reached plateaus that would be impossible to name. Two of my University of Florida friends, Jeral Smithgall, now living in Mobile and Randall Roberts, who has called Valparaiso home for 60 years, continue to read my columns. Jeral saves his papers for sons, Joel of McDonough, Georgia and Jerry of Orlando, to read when they visit the parents. Randall repeatedly reports Judge, I bundle up my newspaper articles and mail them to my sister, Louisa Roberts Harder in Ware, Mass. Jeral is a Ponce De Leon boy and Randall is a Bonifay native. Both expressed pleasure in now being able to read Hazels contributions, as they cover much of Holmes County history and happenings. Circuit Judge Kelvin Clyde Wells, our nephew in DeFuniak Springs, is a subscriber and regular reader of his uncle and aunts writing. He told me recently of sharing the article of the demise of all Florida non-lawyer county judges, with the current long time county judge in Walton County, Hon. David Green. My brother, Jim, is still regarded as my most meticulous and regular reader. He is also numbered as the strongest critic, constructive of course, of both his sister and brother. He jokingly states; Perry and Hazel have the best memory of any of the children in the family. Both are now remembering and writing about things that never happened! What better way of ending my working career from plowing crops and picking cotton on the farm to plucking chickens on the beach job to eleven years as probation and parole counselor to serving 4 terms performing criminal and civil duties as county judge and nally providing comforting reading as a late comer to the eld of journalism as the author of Perrys Prattle? See you all next week as we enter into the eleventh year of publication. With all the rains weve had lately we can be assured that an abundance of mosquitoes will be seen this season. In fact, they are already showing up Floridas outdoor recreational activities make mosquito awareness pertinent at all times. Here at the blueberry farm, those pesky biting insects are especially menacing for our unsuspecting visitors as well as for us and our workers. Health care workers and the media keep us alert to the danger of mosquitoborne diseases such West Nile virus and eastern equine encephalitis, both potentially life threatening. One Holmes County family learned last year the terrible consequences of contracting one of these. On June 29, 2012, Eddie White, a 39 year old white male of the Bethlehem community, was admitted to Southeast Ala. Medical Center with excruciating head ache and nausea. Within 12 hours he had noticeable loss of motor skills and the ability to speak or move. Within 24 hours he was in a coma. Is only early symptoms had been a general malaise with slight nausea and loss of appetite. On July 3, he was own to University of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham where he was eventually diagnosed with eastern equine encephalitis. The battle for his life continued there although the medical team was not optimistic about his chance of survival, let alone any hope of recovery. By August 7, any hope of recovery was abandoned and he was transferred to the nursing unit of Northwest Fla. Hospital in Chipley in a vegetative state. The medical staff had given up, but the family, his wife Felicia (King) and his parents, Bill and Judy White and his two sons, 14 year old Will and 9 year old Justin had not. Their strong Christian Faith guided them as they began the long battle of rehabilitation. Felicia can not praise the staff at Chipley Nursing and Rehab located in the NFC Hospital enough. Even though he was mostly unresponsive, they lovingly cared for his every need, continuing to administer physical therapy on a daily basis. Gradual results were noted and, one by one, he lost his trachea tube, his feeding tube, his brain shunt, his catheter. As his physical functions returned and his speech came back, he knew everyone; he knew their relationships; he remembered birthdays and other important dates. He has no symptoms of amnesia. On December 21, 2012 Eddie came home in time to celebrate Christmas with the family. He continues to make physical and mental progress. His physical therapy sessions have gone down from 5 per week to 2. He walks without the aid of a walker or wheel chair. He isnt driving an automobile yet, but he drives about the farm on a 4-wheel type buggy. Because of his fall risk, some member of the family is with him at all times, mostly his father while his Felicia is at work at WellsFargo bank in Bonifay and the boys are at school at Bethlehem. The family are involved in New Bayview Church of God where Sylvia Foskey is the current pastor. There they happily share their faith in the God who heals; the God who moves mountains. They also share the story of Eddies ordeal and healing anywhere they are permitted to. Though Eddie is not fully back to his old self, his wife sees glimpses of his former personality and she sees changes. One particular change is his love for music and singing. He never sang before, but now he sings along with the radio and he also sings in Church. Perhaps while he was in that coma he heard Heavenly music. The Whites would like to emphasize now their gratitude to God and to everyone who prayed and supported them in any way, including her employer Wells Fargo bank for their allowing her to work exible hours to accommodate Eddies medical visits and physical therapy. Their faith is strong that he will continue to improve and eventually regain all his functions as the brain slowly heals. Their main concern is that people will take precaution to protect themselves from the bite of that one mosquito that was infected. Use a repellant with Dete every time you are outdoors. Wear protective clothing, especially in the late afternoon and evening. (Young children and the elderly or anyone with compromised immune systems should be especially wary.) To control the breeding places, be vigilant inemptying any container that collects water such as pet dishes, animal waterers, bird baths, ower pots, garbage, old tires, some plants themselves. (I have a lot of Bromeliades that retain water in their crowns) Mud holes or any standing water should be drained. Pouring burnt oil on such places will also inhibit the breeding of the pests. Mosquito control is an expensive but an ongoing issue in Florida. Scientists continue to study a way of eradicating mosquitos in the same way that the screwworm y was eradicated. The city of Bonifay does spray inside the city, but it is hoped that the county will nd a way to eradicate some of the breeding places. In the meantime, we can each do our part by eradicating breeding places on our own property. We hope no one else has to experience what the White family has experienced.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 10, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Every now and then an innovation comes along that both fishermen and hunters can use in the outdoors. A new camera has hit the market that just about anyone can learn to use on the water or underwater. The brand name is GoPro and it has been out for some time, but they keep improving the product and it is easier to use. If you go to a store that sells them, you might find a monitor showing people jumping out of airplanes, snow skiing or scuba diving while wearing one. If you want to record a fishing trip and have your hands free this camera is for you. There are several ways you can mount this camera on your person or on the boat you will be fishing from. I went freshwater fishing the other day, turned on the camera and forgot about it until we were through. I could have mounted the camera on a suction cup which would have given me only a fixed angle, perhaps looking from the back of the boat or from the front looking back. On larger boats this is perfect for catching the action because on center console boats most of the fishing is done from the front. I was in a 12-foot john boat so there was the danger of stepping on the camera because it is so small. So I opted to use the head mount. If you have ever gigged frogs you are familiar with a head lamp worn, of course, on the head. This camera is so small you really dont know it is on your head. The real reason I bought this camera is to use underwater while tied to a fishing rod and reel. I thought when the Gulf finally cleared I could tie it to a rod and lower it to the desired depth that snapper would be located and watch the action. It comes with a waterproof case and is good to 180 feet. It would be kind of neat to see what is going on under your boat and not have to get in the water to do it. Try out the GoPro the next time you go. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Spring gobbler season is in full swing Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Spring has of cially sprung in Florida. In the Panhandle the azaleas are blooming, the pleasant scent of orange blossoms is in the air in Central Florida, and folks in the Keys are gearing up for extra tourists. It also means spring gobbler season is in full swing. From helping hunters stay safe in wildlife management areas, to answering questions about regulations, to checking for poachers hunting over bait, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission of cers are engaged throughout the season. They are vital to ensuring Floridas residents and visitors can safely enjoy hunting in Florida for years to come. And the fact that peninsular Florida is the only place in the world where hunters can bag an Osceola turkey (one of the ve subspecies in North America) makes it a top hunting destination. FWC of cers ll a vital role in the states economic as well as environmental future. They have been busy this season already, dealing with cases involving bait, trespassing, overthe-bag-limit and hunting-outof-season in Glades, Santa Rosa, Alachua, Duval, Polk and Osceola counties. However, enforcing regulations isnt the only way in which FWC of cers contribute. The story of the wild turkey in Holmes County is a prime example of the tangible impact FWC of cers have made on conservation efforts and the relationship they have with stakeholders. In 1997, Of cer Larry Morris, an FWC of cer in Holmes County who has served since 1990, noticed a disturbing lack of wild turkeys in the county. Through his consistent communication with landowners and other members of the community, he learned others shared his concern and were interested in doing something about it. Through biological surveys, FWC biologist Larry Perrin led a team that con rmed there were no wild turkeys in Holmes County. In 1998, the FWC closed Holmes County to turkey hunting. For the next two years, FWC biologists and of cers, including Of cer Larry Morris, worked with stakeholders and partner organizations such as the National Wild Turkey Federation to trap 121 wild turkeys from other parts of the Panhandle and relocate them to Holmes County. The population boomed, as everyone had hoped. In addition to enforcement efforts after the turkeys were released, FWC of cers continued their outreach, passing along important information from FWC biologists. They spoke to landowners, hunters, farmers and others about the need to protect the restocked birds and encouraged them to improve the turkeys habitat through prescribed burning, timber thinning and planting crops that bene t turkeys. They received an overwhelming amount of support from the public people were taking ownership in the ght to conserve the areas natural resources. Today, the restoration of turkeys in Holmes County is considered a huge success. There is a 16-day spring hunting season, including quota hunts on state lands. Recent efforts have included annual population surveys, public meetings, one of which was held in Bonifay this past February, and continued communication by FWC of cers with members of their communities. BEAR-HUMAN By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The number of bear-related calls received by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are on the rise in Northwest Florida. In 2002, the FWC logged 118 calls for the 16-county area stretching from Escambia County to Jefferson County. In 2012, that number rocketed to almost 1,700 calls. Bears are driven by the urge to eat and it doesnt matter to them whether its garbage or other easy sources of food such as bird seed or pet food. The key to keeping bears in the wild and out of your yard is denying them easy access to food. In Wakulla County, which has experienced a rapid human growth and rise in bear complaints in the past several years, two things have transpired to reduce human-bear con icts. For one thing, garbage pick-up is mandatory for all residents. Problems with garbage sitting for days in cans in outlying areas and becoming a target for hungry bears have been mostly resolved. Secondly, Waste Pro, the waste service company in the county, makes modi ed and bearresistant cans available to residents experiencing bear problems. Residents can receive a modi ed trash can for and extra fee. Even with the extra fee, many residents keep their garbage secured in the wildlife-resistant cans. In nearby Franklin County, the developers of St. James Bay, a planned residential development that will eventually total almost 500 homes, require the use of bear-resistant cans. To the west, theres no better example of a proactive approach in reducing bear issues than on U.S. Air Force Bases Hurlburt Field in Okaloosa County. Several years ago, Hurlburt Field of cials required the use of bear-resistant garbage cans and dumpsters of all base personnel, and implemented an education program on the dos and donts when living near bears. They were able to document more than a 70 percent decline in calls and complaints about bears. Elsewhere in Okaloosa County, communities and governmental leaders are working with the FWC to reduce human-bear con icts. For example, Fort Walton Beach has retro tted old plastic-lid dumpsters with reinforced lids to keep bears from raiding them for food scraps. The city also is installing inexpensive gate-hasp hardware on existing garbage cans to keep bears from household garbage. The nearby cities of Mary Esther and Valparaiso are similarly retro tting garbage cans used by residents. Although there are other notable successes in dealing with bears, the key to drastically reducing the number of problems in the future is cooperation between county governmental leaders and waste service companies to make reasonable options available for residents to keep their garbage secure. Providing bear-resistant garbage cans to the public and a willingness by the public to use those cans are the most important components needed to reduce human-bear con icts. CONFLICT Denying bears easy access to food is key to prevention STAFF SGT. ERIC THOMAS | Special to The News Herald A bear pilfers through a dumpster at Tyndall Air Force Base. METROCREATIVE

Ask your banker how you can be entered to win $250 toward an iPhone 5 From Staff Reports CHICAGO Chris Walker of Holmes County won the dunk contest before the McDonalds All-American high school basketball game at the United Center. Walker, a University of Florida commitment who led Holmes County to the Class 1A state championship last month, had four solid dunks, including a windmill for 54 points to start, a one-handed slam for a perfect score of 60 and two strong dunks to close the competition. Walker nished with 226 points to top Aaron Gordon of Archbishop Mitty (San Jose, Calif.), who had 213 points, and Jabari Parker of Simeon (Chicago), who had 211. Gordon was the MVP Wednesday night as the West gained a 110-99 victory over the East squad. Gordon had 24 points and eight rebounds in front of 15,818. The East got within 9490 when Dakari Johnson scored with 4:40 left, but Gordon responded with a dunk and scored again to boost the Wests lead to 106-91. Andrew Wiggins had 19 points for the East, and Johnson had 12. Walker shot 2 for 6 from the eld and 0 for 2 at the free-throw line while scoring four points in 12 minutes. He added six rebounds, one assist, one blocked shot and one steal. Walker is scheduled to play in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 13 in Brooklyn. By BRANDON WALKER 863-1111 ext. 1476 bwalker@pcnh,com PANAMA CITY Just before he stepped onto the court at the Halifax AllStar Classic on Saturday afternoon, Rutherford standout Jai Jencks had a message for his father. Right when we started, I told my dad that I wanted to come out here and win MVP today, Jencks said. My teammate (Jon Wade) won it last year, and I wanted to keep it at Rutherford. Jencks then went out and backed up his promise. Behind 14 points from Jencks and double-digit performances from three others, the East squad held off a furious rally in the games nal three minutes to earn a thrilling 8786 win at Gulf Coasts Billy Harrison Field House. The win marked the Easts third straight in the series, which is in its ninth year. Everybody had fun, said Malone head coach Steve Welch, who served as co-coach of the East with Gracevilles Matt Anderson. It was a great game with both teams taking turns making big plays. (The West) hit some big shots down the stretch. It was really one of the better games Ive seen over here. Despite leading by as many as 13 in the second half, the East was pushed to the limit on Saturday, as the West, which represented Santa Rosa, Walton and Okaloosa counties, nished the game on a 12-2 run over the nal three minutes. That cut the de cit to one point, and after getting a defensive stop on the Easts nal possession, the West took the ball with 28 seconds left and a chance to win the game. But West MVP Deshun Tuckers initial shot missed, as did Tyrone Culbreths putback. Culbreth got a second offensive rebound but was unable to get a shot off prior to the nal buzzer. We had our chances at the end, just couldnt get it to go in, said Choctawhatchee head coach Andy Thigpen, who coached the West. It was a fun game to be a part of, and Im proud of the guys. Thats a very good team on the other side. Owning a distinct size advantage, the East featured four players at 6-foot7 or better, while the Wests tallest player, Culbreth, is listed at 6-4. The West was able to get off to a quick start in the rst half, racing out to a 21-9 lead just six minutes into the game. The lead would eventually reach 13 points at 32-19 before the East reeled off a 13-0 run to knot the score late in the rst half. The East eventually took a 47-43 lead into halftime. The second half was just as close, as each team took turns delighting the crowd with highlight-worthy plays, one being a rimrattling, left-handed dunk by Malones Ty Baker that brought the crowd to its feet. Thats just Ty Baker, thats what he can do, said Jencks, who had a pair of dunks of his own. This is the best team Ive ever played with. For the West, Culbreth and Walton guard Ken Randolph each scored 14 points while Tucker added 13. Nicevilles Nick Haynes and Choctaws Michael Hawkins each added 10 points. Gracevilles Marquis White joined Jencks on the East with 14 points, while Baker and Rutherfords Kiki Williamson scored 10 each. There was a ton of talent out here today, on both sides, Welch said.

By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 |@PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Taliah Moore was of cially named MVP of the Halifax All-Star Classic girls game Saturday. However, the basketball she earned as an award could have been split into thirds. Moore scored an event record 33 points in the Wests 81-58 triumph over the East at the Billy Harrison Field House. Her team was outnumbered, with Morgan Kennedys fractured foot reducing the West roster to seven players. The lower number was inconsequential, however, as Moore and the Choctawhatchee duo of Brittany Brown and Lauren Day were more than enough in a display of Ironwoman efforts. The only time the trio found a seat was at halftime in the game played under college rules with 20-minute halves. They combined for 61 points and Brown made her case for MVP with 14 of those to go along with 11 rebounds and more than 10 assists for a triple-double. Day added a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds, eight coming in the rst half when the West built an insurmountable lead. Moore, who scored more than 1,000 career points for Walton, credited Brown for setting her up with myriad easy looks. She broke Jon Wades barely year-old record of 30 points with a basket with 4:35 to play in giving the West a 71-50 lead. She added to the mark with a nal score three minutes later in upping the advantage to 77-56. We just wanted to go out there and play our best and thats what we did, Moore said. We did get tired, but we did what we had to do to get the W. Moore had 18 points in the rst half, which ended with the West ahead 4024. The East fell behind by eight points in the opening minutes on Days basket, but it weathered the surge with an 11-2 run capped by Alexis Ware scoring off a turnover for the Easts second and nal lead, 14-13. The East also held a 3-2 lead on one of JoJo Bookers two 3-pointers on the second basket of the game. Moore notched four of the Wests next six baskets turning a one-point de cit into a 25-16 bulge with seven minutes to go in the rst half. She also had one of three 3-pointers to put the West ahead 30-20 and added a lay-in and a free throw to end the rst-half scoring. Day controlled the offensive glass, Brown dished out assists and added intensity on defense despite not getting a breather and the East turned the ball over 15 times in the opening 20 minutes. The East nished with 23 turnovers, was outrebounded 48-37 and offered the West far too many second chances to remain competitive. Turnovers also proved critical when the East clawed back to within 50-39 on Ware eld goal with 11 minutes to play. The East had three opportunities to pull near single digits. But it had three straight turnovers and Moores nal 3-pointer erased hopes of a rally and gave the West a 64-44 cushion four minutes later. We kept standing around and giving up the rebounds, East coach Heather Hingson said. Then we had the three turnovers. We didnt have good execution. Ware nished with 14 points and ve rebounds to earn East MVP honors. Mikayla Moore scored 11 and Jasmine Belser eight for the East. Cassidy Anderson added eight points on four eld goals for the West. Nine of the Easts 11 players scored, while all seven on the West tallied at least two points. Moore and the West maintained control of the series with its seventh win in nine years. It marked the rst time a winning team scored more than 80 points since 2009. The 23-point de cit also was the largest since the same year, when the West rolled to a 112-73 victory. We had fun, Moore said. Its a good feeling to play in your last game and get a win.

We had a tour of every inch of the building. The emergency room and the capacity that they have there to take care of the citizens of Holmes County and the surrounding counties and even the people who travel through on I-10. He said he found it impressive what the hospital can accommodate not only on an emergency basis but on an inpatient capacity. We met people there today that were in the hospital because of pneumonia, the u, and I am just amazed and very impressed at the level of care they were receiving, Southerland said. These are things that people really need to know about, one of which is the rehab facility. The rehab facility there at Doctors Memorial Hospital treats and serves about 25 patients a day, both inpatient as well as outpatient, as well as the pool they have there to do in-thewater rehab; its just an amazing facility. Not only did the facility impress him, he said the pride residents had in DMH also impressed him. I noticed the pride of the community, Southerland said.

While many may not nd a rodent as a rst choice for a pet, with some insight and guidance you may be more receptive to the idea of a small hamster or rat becoming a suitable pet for your family. Rats are probably the most social and interactive of the small rodents, said Dr. Sharman Hoppes, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Rats are gentle, seldom bite and are active during the day and are fairly easy to take care of. Rats do not have special dietary needs or sensitive stomachs, although they do need a good quality rodent block or pellet. The seed mix diets are not a nutritionally adequate diet. When picking out a pet rodent, you should select an active, social rodent with clean eyes, a clean nose and normal teeth. The skin should be well-groomed and clean. There should be no lumps or bumps on their skin, Hoppes said. Small rodents, such as mice and hamsters, can bite more and tend to be more active at night. Guinea pigs and chinchillas are a bit bigger and are gentle pets, but they have special dietary needs and their teeth continuously grow. Gerbils are unlikely to bite, if handled gently. They have few health problems and are the cleanest of all the commonly kept pet rodents. If you are more interested in observing your pet and dont have as much time, a gerbil, hamster or mouse is an option as they are happy living in their cage. If you want a socially active pet that needs lots of attention and activity, a rat, chinchilla or guinea pig is a great pet, Hoppes said. Rats are so social that they should not be housed alone. If you are a night owl, then hamsters may be best since they tend to sleep all day and run in their wheel all night. One important aspect of keeping a pet rodent is that their cage needs to be cleaned one to two times a week to keep ammonia levels down. All pet rodents need a clean large cage, chew toys, ladders, plastic or PVC pipe, and daily interaction. Beddings such as Paper, aspen or walnut shavings are best, while corncob, pine, and cedar shavings should be avoided, Hoppes said. Rodents need fresh water and food constantly. Guinea pigs and chinchillas have a special need for timothy hay since they have continuously growing cheek teeth. This hay helps keep the teeth from overgrowing. Additionally, guinea pigs need vitamin C daily. All rodents can have a small amount of fruits and vegetables for treats. Chinchillas also need daily dust baths, and they and guinea pigs are very sensitive to heat and humidity. Both are susceptible to heatstroke in temperatures as low as 80-85 degrees, especially if the humidity is higher than 40 percent. Pet rodents do not need vaccinations, Hoppes said. There are few diseases to be concerned with, and while salmonella infection has been documented, it is rare. Rat bite fever, caused by a bacterial infection, may occur after a rat bite. This can be prevented by immediately disinfecting any bite wound from a rat. While diseases are uncommon in rodents, rats are prone to mammary tumors, and hamsters often have diarrhea (wet tail). Many rodents are also prone to respiratory disease. Guinea pigs and chinchillas are susceptible to ring worm so any hair loss or patchy areas on the skin should be seen by a veterinarian for treatment immediately. The life span of pet rodents varies. Mice and hamsters generally live one to two years, rats two to three years, gerbils three to ve years, guinea pigs ve to seven years, and chinchillas live eight to 12 years or longer.ABOUT PET TA LK Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

(answer found in this weeks scripture reading) Page 4 Wednesday, April 10, 2013 The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching television listening to a news report and I simply broke out into laughter. What are you laughing at? my wife asked. Im just thinking of Mrs. Ammon. When I went to school we didnt need any armed guards, we had Mrs. Ammon and nobody crossed her. The news report went on to say how they were trying to put armed guards at every school in our country. I suppose that is a good idea, I do not know all the ins and outs of the politicalness of that report. Everything these days seems to have some kind of a political angle to it. Now that political angle is intruding itself into the public school system. This is all an attempt to protect our school children. I am all for that. I was thinking, however, that when I was a youngster we did not need that sort of thing. We had Mrs. Ammon and her infamous hickory stick. Very few people remember a time when a teacher had, as one of her tools for education, a hickory stick and knew how to wield it, and wield it they did. Somebody may ask how I know about that. Very simply. I am the product of a teacher wielding the hickory stick. It is hard now to remember the occasion that called for the application of that hickory stick. Actually, there was more than one occasion calling for such teacher and student interaction. The old saying was that our teacher would apply the Board of Education to the Seat of Learning. Believe me when I say, I earned a degree in that. Somebody will say, Things have changed. I will agree that things have changed, but most things have not changed for the better. Back in the day when I was a member of the public education system, the teachers were in charge. A basic rule in our house prevailed, If you get a paddling in school, you get a paddling at home. It was assumed the teacher was right. I distinctly remember my rst interaction with my teacher in this regard. How can you forget such a thing? At that time, teachers were too busy to put up with any kind of fooling around in a classroom. Do not get me wrong, my teacher made it fun most of the time. For the ones who, like me, took it too far, she knew how to stop it dead in its tracks. Mr. Snyder, the teacher would say in a very stern tone of voice. Is that you making all that noise? I knew what was to follow. Mr. Snyder, please go to the principals of ce and I will join you shortly. Oh boy. Those familiar words bring back haunting memories of my visit to the principals of ce. You can be sure; Mrs. Ammon would not come into the principals of ce, spank you and then go back to her class. On some occasions, I would have preferred her to spank me and get it over with. The rst thing she had to do was explain to me why what I did was wrong and disruptive to the class. Then, she had to explain to me how this paddling I was about the cat was going to hurt her more than it did me. For the life of me, I could never gure out where it hurt her more than it did me. I knew exactly where it hurt me and for the rest of the day it would be quite dif cult for me to sit down in my chair. Not only did my posterior glow in pain, but the snickers of my fellow students were even worse. At the time of the application of the hickory stick, I really did not like Mrs. Ammon. Looking back, I have a different perspective. I now know that she really had an interest in me as a person. She was trying to discipline me in ways in which I needed discipline from someone like her. Years later, I went back and visited my old teacher, Mrs. Ammon. I took to her some books I had written and published. She said she remembered me, I really do not know if she did or not. I had to do one thing and that was to thank her. I want to thank you, Mrs. Ammon, for teaching me to read and to write. Then I handed her my books. She seemed to be so very happy, but not as happy as I was. This teacher made a difference in my life that I did not realize until I was older. One thing Mrs. Ammon taught me was that I should not get away with anything. There is a moment of accountability everybody must face. Mrs. Ammon was making sure that I was facing up to the realities of life before I did too much damage to my life. It is sad that the politics have taken over our education system today. It is sad that we do not have any Mrs. Ammons with their hickory sticks. When I think of Mrs. Ammon I think of what Solomon writes, He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (Proverbs 13:24 KJV). It is my opinion that we need more Mrs. Ammons in our school classrooms and less, a lot less, politics. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B7 Special to Extra BETHLEHEM The Bethle hem School PTO formed in September of 2012, and has had an extremely productive and successful rst year. In their rm support of the school, its staff and the stu dents, they have contributed to many special events held at the school, as well as orga nized fundraising programs to raise money to benet the school. They are also taking part in planning events and programs they are hopeful to host and contribute to in the future. Their efforts so far have won them praise from teachers and parents, and the community as a whole. These are some of the special events the PTO has helped contribute to: Veterans Day Luncheon: The Special Events Com mittee hosted local veterans at a luncheon served by the culinary class and provided patriotic musical entertain ment for the guests. Christmas Dance/Valen tines Day Dance: Volunteers decorated the student activ ity center with lovely and col orful decorations for all the students to enjoy at the two dances. Homecoming and Alumni Dinner: The Special Events Committee decorated the student activity center with Blast from the Past deco rations, as well as the Choral Suite, in preparation for the Homecoming celebration and Alumni dinner on Janu ary 25th, and hosted a lovely buffet of nger foods for all attending alumni. Teachers Appreciation Luncheon: This was hosted by the PTO on March 22nd, just before the teachers and staff left for spring break. The theme was Chicken Soup for the Teachers Soul, and included homemade soups, sandwiches and salads made by the parents, as well as a motivational speaker to in spire them to continue their good works as educators of our children. Door prizes and small gifts were donated and given out to the teachers and staff as well. It turned out to be a wonderful day for every one involved and everyone who attended. For each of these events, the Spitshine Committee was in charge of cleaning and preparing all the rooms used for the special events, as well as the cleanup after. These are some of the fundraising projects the PTO has organized this school year: The Fall Festival: The PTO was proud to host a suc cessful Fall Festival table, and one of the teachers gra ciously offered her services as a Fortune Teller. Homecoming 2013: Chances were sold on a beau tiful Homecoming Basketball Cake during the Homecom ing games. Pizza Hut Cards: The PTO Fundraising Commit tee headed and organized the sale of Pizza Hut pro motional cards. Purchasers who spend $15 on any Pizza Hut purchase receive up to 12 medium pizzas for free. All the cards were sold, so this was a very successful program for the PTO and the school. My Coke Rewards: Also hosted by the PTO Fundrais ing Committee, Bethlehem School is taking part in the MyCokeRewards Program. This allows for points to be awarded to the school by creating a My Coke Rewards account online and entering codes or by sending Coke product caps to the school which are then added to the account. These points will be used to purchase school related items. Easter Bunny Pictures/ Easter Baskets: The PTO Fundraising and Special Events Committees were proud to bring the Easter Bunny to Bethlehem School. Free pictures were taken for Pre-K through 6th grade, and the students also received a special treat. Chances were sold on two Easter baskets, one boy and one girl, with proceeds going to the PTO general fund. For the upcoming First Annual Springtime Heritage Day at Bethlehem School scheduled for April 13, the PTO will host a live auc tion, plant sale and old time photos. All funds raised will be used to help cover the costs of future projects and special events, and for programs in support of the teachers, such as the Teachers Angel Project. Current and Future Proj ects headed by the Bethle hem School PTO: Greenhouse and Garden Project: The PTO Agricul tural Committee worked hard to organize the cleaning and preparation of an on site greenhouse at the school, and is currently growing plants for sale at the upcom ing Springtime Heritage Day Festival on April 13th. They also applied for and were awarded a grant by Walmart Stores to purchase some of the supplies needed for their future plans for this project, which include raised bed gar dens, a buttery garden, and classroom projects for the elementary students. Arts and Music: PTO President and Music and Arts Committee Chairper son Tamra Kriser has played an integral role in the plans to add a music and arts program to the Bethlehem School curriculum. She draft ed a petition to do so, which was signed by over 700 com munity members, including students and parents who support the plans for this new program. The Holmes District School Board was approached with the request in January of this year, and the petition was submitted for their consideration. The School Board has assured Mrs. Kriser that they are in the process of moving to wards this goal. At this time, the rst annual Bethlehems Got Talent talent show has been approved, and is cur rently being planned for sometime in May where the students performing and visual arts talents will be showcased. Teachers Angel Project: This is a PTO fundraising project which will help teach ers to get the supplies they need for their classrooms without having to purchase the items themselves. Bethlehem School PTO Quarterly Newsletter: The rst copy of the newsletter will be designed by the PTO Publicist Committee by yearend, and will be released quarterly from that point forward. Bethlehem School Store: There will be extensive in volvement by the PTO with the organizing and manage ment of an in-house school store at Bethlehem School. They will also involve the business class students, who will be volunteering their free time to manage the store and sell the school supplies and small treats that will be stocked for sale to the stu dents. There is money in a school fund for this project already, and Walmart Stores has a grant available to pur chase supplies as well. All proceeds generated from the store will benet the school, and its students. About the Bethlehem School PTO: This Parent Teacher Or ganization is a service-ori ented grassroots organiza tion headed by concerned and dedicated parents of stu dents at Bethlehem School.

County Attorney Jeff Goodman said the county was being reimbursed for the cost of rock and the fuel to transport it to those who wished to purchase it within Holmes County. Goodman said he arranged the policy for the county to get out of the business based on possible liability. There were too many possible liability issues that could occur when going on private property to deliver a product, even if the county was being reimbursed, Goodman said. Commissioner Kenneth Williams agreed with Goodman, saying he was uneasy with such a high risk of liability on the county to be entering on to private property.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com ESTO The Esto Town Council approved of the rst reading of Ordinance 13-01 during its April 2 meeting, which will increase the water rates in Esto beginning in May, after the second and nal reading in a public hearing.

Im actually disappointed no one showed up for the public hearing, Town Clerk Jody Sellers said. Youd think people would want to be more involved in whats going on with their town. Chairman Danny Powell said landowner Brady Well made an offer to sell his property to the town, which has been used by visitors as extra parking during the Two-Toe Tom Festival.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Bonifay Kiwanis Club received an update about the Two-Toe Tom Festival from Esto Town Council member Darlene Madden and was entertained by the Carmel Assembly of God choir during its April 3 meeting.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 10, 2013 We need to get out of the rockselling business, Commissioner Bill Parish said. It not only puts us in competition with local companies in the same business, but its too much of a liability. We have no intention of hurting or hindering service to our residents but we shouldnt be involved in the private market place. Merchant disagreed with the decision. I know were not in the business of hauling rock, but its not like dirt, Merchant said. Its not like were hauling it every day. The board also approved of the resignation of Holmes County Development Chair Bud Riviere. The commissioners also approved of abandonment resolution for the Colletti property. After a public hearing, the road abandonment was tabled after local resident Tom Smith said abandoning the road would mean cutting off access to his property. This issue had been brought before by resident Jeffery Johnson at the boards Jan. 16 meeting, requesting to properly vacate a street that dead-ends next to a piece of property he purchased recently from Colletti. Its 8.5 acres of usable land, but if that piece of street was properly vacated it would be 10.6, Johnson said. Landowner Daniel Colletti said the boards old resolution didnt include the lower half to be properly vacated, but he said he was ready to sign the required paper work and pay the $500 to place up the sign. Weve got to run an ad and hold a public hearing at the next meeting in March, Goodman said. Goodman said he and Smith had a discussion and found that it wasnt a matter of access but a matter of devaluing. We had a very good conversation and found that he has access to his property, Goodman said. Ive also explained that all these roads have already been abandoned, but since they were not properly led before, were having to go through this process now. The board agreed to start the process of abandoning Prosser Lane at the request of landowner Steve Rocher, because he has purchased all surrounding land and he is the only one to be impacted by abandoning the road. We have to advertise for a number of weeks in the newspaper. Then, we can hold a public hearing and then take action, Goodman said. The commissioners also approved of advertising and holding a public hearing to continue the 1 percent small county surtax. Parish requested the purchase of two culverts, one for $2,000 and another to temporarily replace a bridge for $4,000. Its just a possible temporary x until other arrangements can be made, Parish said. Parish also said the road department was still receiving calls for culvert permits. We need to let everyone know if theres any issue with a road that they should call our main ofce, Parish said. If theres any issue to do with a road residents should call 547-1119. He also requested a new document be provided to the road foremen so that a more detailed report can be submitted. Merchant encouraged the new commissioners to attend Legislative Day, which was held April 4 at the FSU Turnbull Conference Center in Tallahassee. Goodman also encouraged the new commissioners to attend a convention in Tampa that is arranged speci cally for new commissioners. Hes wanting $36,000 for two acres because its considered in town, Powell said. Its nice of him to let us use his property for the festival, but it is well overpriced. The council agreed to table the offer until the next meeting. Sellers informed the council that they have negotiated with the towns auditor to reduce his invoice from $10,000 to $9,000, which would mean the town would only have $3,000 left owed and the town approved to pay in increments of $500 a month until it was paid. During the March 5 meeting, Sellers told the council she received an invoice from their auditor for $10,000 for his services, but the auditor originally quoted an estimate of between $6,000 and $7,000. The council agreed to draft a letter stating insuf cient services and requesting the return of owed les and to make necessary contacts to hire a new auditor, this time under the prerequisite of having a contract as suggested by Goodman. We were able to nd the engagement letter that was signed stating that his expenses would not exceed $9,000, Sellers said. Our les have been returned, weve got a quote from a new company that is closer that says they will not exceed $6,750, and we should be getting another quote soon so we wont have to deal with this auditor any more. The council was informed that a circuit rider for Florida Rural Water Association gave Sellers a list of bene ts the town is entitled to because the town is a member of the Florida Rural Water Association. Powell also informed them that the Florida Rural Water Association might help paint the water tower. During the previous meeting, Sellers informed them that the town had received a letter from the Department of Environmental Protection stating all the requirements to get the water system up to code was almost complete, but the last requirement was also the most expensive. We need to paint the water tower, and it needs to be done by April 2014, Sellers said. Powell told the council Dollar General had applied to Bonifay for an alcoholic beverage license and a tobacco permit because the corporate branch failed to realize that even though the store had a Bonifay address it was in the town of Esto. After we discussed things and I went over the towns ordinance concerning an alcoholic beverage license and that it just wasnt possible, they were very understanding, Powell said. Now, they did get their tobacco permit, and they are selling tobacco products now. Madden gave an update on the second annual Two-Toe Tom Festival, which will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at John W. Clark Park in Esto. Were still seeing about getting Jerome Jackson to perform for us, Madden said. Hes asking for $600, and were trying to talk him down on the price, especially since hes only going to give us 45 minutes and last year he came for $450 and that was for an hour and a half. She said she got a lot of interest from Swamp People and that it was possible to arrange to have them at next years event. Its getting bigger and bigger, Madden said. Last year, we got between 1,500 and 1,600, and were estimating around 1,800 to 2,000. Weve got to be able to accommodate to the increase. Powell said he agreed, however the town needed to also focus on maintaining what it has and keep in mind that whatever they expand must also be maintained. Even if we break even on this event, we did what we were meant to do, council member James Daniels said. Thats bringing hundreds of people to come and see Esto. Sellers also added that this year there was going to be a vendor with a large assortment of alligator items to purchase as well as a vendor to sell food made from alligators. The next Esto Town Council meeting is set for 7 p.m. on May 7 at the Esto Town Hall.

The festival is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at John W. Clark Park in Esto. We are excited about this years event, Madden said. Weve been working hard to build up Esto and our park is beautiful. We had an attendance of 1,500 and were expecting between 1,800 and 2,000 this year. She said this was an event not only to raise funds for the town but to also give local families and children something to enjoy for free. Events include a car and truck show, horseshoe tournament, dunking booth, Fire truck Exhibit; vendors with wood art, arts and crafts, hand-painted items, childrens clothes, candles, food, cakewalk, face painting and more. Entertainment includes the Springs, Southern Chain Gang and Big and Loud, and she said they were in the process of getting Jerome Jackson. We want to make Esto a better place to live, Madden said.

Arrested were William Ran Elmore, 31, of Bonifay, on charges of assault, battery, burglary of a conveyance and robbery of a person; Beauregard Lane Shideler, 31, of Bonifay, on charges of battery and robbery of a person; and Linda Marie Bess, 30, of Bonifay, on charges of manufacture of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and providing false information to a law enforcement of cer. Bonifay Police of cers responded to the report of physical altercation in the 600 block of Cotton Street at about 3 p.m. on April 1. Of cers arrived on scene and obtained a statement from the alleged victim and several witnesses, who provided descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle. A canvas of the area led to the discovery of the suspect vehicle at an address on Hamlin Street, just a few blocks away from the incident location, according to the release. Permission to search the residence was obtained by the of cers and the suspects were arrested without incident. During the investigation, a shake and bake methamphetamine lab was discovered in the home. The lab was located in the master bedroom and contained the necessary items to manufacture the illicit drug. Police: Fight report leads to discovery of meth lab WILLIAM ELMORE BEAUREGARD SHIDELER LINDA BESS BONIFAY from page A1personal property within the Bonifay City limits that is considered unattractive, unhealthy or unsafe to the surrounding residents and visitors and denes penalties, procedures and enforcement allowed for handling such cases. This allows the city to notify the property owner that a clean up is required and if there is no response after a certain period of time then the city will clean it, bill the owner for the clean up and place a lean on the property. Council members reassured local resident Connie Land that this would be the case for the property next door to hers. Land had approached the council because of the property next door was abandoned, burned at some point, had broken windows, doors removed and unmanaged lawn and was frequented by vagrants. Ive got an appraisal coming up to reduce my mortgage and its going to diminish the value of my property, said Land. The council assured Land the new ordinance is there for that reason, and City Superintendent Jack Marell agreed to maintain the lawn once a month, sending the bill to the owner each time. The council also approved a $71,695.76 change order from Hatch Mott MacDonald to the water/sewer project. Hatch Mott MacDonald representative Shakil Amin said this was the last change order before the completion of the project and included the replacement of a stone water pipe, replacement of valves, an electronic gate with restricted access to the Waste Water Facility, pumps, sludge valves and a phone board. Council members approved of council member Roger Brooks request that the city repair broken equipment and dangerous areas to Veterans Park at the estimated cost of $1,500. There are broken swings, a piece of equipment is broken and theres a jagged piece of concrete that needs to be dealt with before a child gets hurt, Brooks said. These kids deserve to have a nice and safe park to play in. Resident Alan Riley came before the council asking for relief with his $222 plumber bill. Riley said there were some issues over the weekend with his plumbing being backed up and with him having guests that weekend he needed immediate relief. He said he called a plumber, and when the issue couldnt be found within his residence, he assumed it was with the new pipe located on city property. However, when a city worker came to investigate, the matter seemed to have been resolved. The next day the issue occurred again, but this time Riley said he was away and his wife called the plumber again, and the plumber went to the citys section and found the clog to remove it. Marell said if they had known about the second clog then they wouldve been able to do something about it. After much discussion the city approved to pay half of the plumbing expenses. Woodham commended Marell on his work helping the residents with water and sewer issues while the water/sewer project continues. The council also approved a Relay For Life Proclamation 13-1, American Cancer Society Relay For Life Proclamation for the City of Bonifay, which proclaims April 19 and 20 as Relay for Life Days. Kim Castriotta, representing the Florida Division of the American Cancer Society, and Greg Barton, representing the Relay For Life of Bonifays team captain for the Bonifay Fire and Rescue and Holmes County EMS, Hose and Stretcher Gang, were present to talk about the upcoming Relay For Life of Bonifay Event to be held from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on April 19 and 20 at Memorial Field in Bonifay. The residents and participants have been wonderful and enthusiastic, warm and caring, and a lot is going on, Castriotta said. One of the committee members has asked about painting the town purple, and she had said she hasnt heard of one being down here before We ask for someone donate big purple bows (in some places its wooden purple people waving on street corners), and what it does is peak peoples curiosity about why theres so much purple. It gets the creative juices owing and everyone thinking about it. It wont be anything excessive, just a few bows, ribbons and signs here and there for that week before Relay. If store owners want to sponsor a ribbon or purple bow on their store front that will also be made available for that week. The council agreed to allow for the purple ribbons and bows to be put on Bonifay street poles and said it would be up to the store owners to give them permission to use their store fronts for purple ribbons and signage. Barton said his team held a boot drive that raised over $2,350 in less than four hours on Saturday, April 6. The next scheduled Bonifay City Council meeting is set for 6 p.m. on April 22 at the Bonifay City Hall.

It was on April 9, 2003, when the Washington County News printed the rst column with the above heading. The management of the paper at that time requested that I join the paper in writing of the many and varied careers of Perry Wells. A short time later, my sister, Hazel Wells Tison, agreed to the request to become the correspondent for the Holmes County TimesAdvertiser, thus The Happy Corner was born. Hazel and I are both honored the newspapers in Washington and Holmes Counties now carry our columns. Accolades and expressions of enjoying the articles just keep on coming. My rst congratulations on becoming ten years old came from Chipley native, Vernon Lewis, now living in Bedford, Virginia. Some of his writings, experiences and re ections of having been reared in Washington County have been used in my writings. I would welcome, and attempt to incorporate any other material which he feels inclined to send. Our friends and associates in the Primitive Baptist Church of several years past, are now living in Monroe, Wisconsin. Jim and Catherine Moseley are near my age, and Jim knows of some of same work experiences which the prattler frequently writes about. He grew up in the Mobile area, worked in a grocery store from daylight to dark for $6 per day, and was happy to receive that. Our Wisconsin friends have recently entertained moving back southward, but it appears now that will not happen. The couple, experienced in carpentry, not only builds houses, but also renovates older properties as well. I label their efforts now as missionary work. They completed a project in Chipley recently before moving to the Dallas, Texas area for another home improvement benevolent job for a deserving family acquaintance. Since their return to Wisconsin, a shipment of cheese came to the Wells household, with a portion being included for my brother, Max and wife, Joyce. We reciprocated by sending them a liberal sampling of homemade cane syrup made by Holmes Countian, Terry Trammell. The Moseleys are now readers of Perrys Prattle and The Happy Corner. In a recent telephone call to thank us for the syrup, he stated; Brother Perry, should you mention the tenth birthday of your column, please include us as ardent readers and two appreciative people in the north land who enjoy both writings. Marshall Steverson may be the last person from Holmes County to report his enjoyment of both Hazel and Perrys writings. In Washington County, that last person is Nita Varnum of Greenhead who told me that she goes immediately to my column to begin her weekly reading. In the past week, a letter was received from Stan Brock and wife, Kay, from Ft. Walton Beach, expressing thanks for the tribute article of December paying respect to Hurdis Brock who passed away in Crestview in late November. His wife, Sal Brock, also died 34 days afterwards. Hurdis was my 1944 Vernon High School Classmate. Aside from being a dear friend, we are also kinsmen as descendants from the pioneer Brock stalwarts, Thomas Jefferson Brock and brother, Joshua Brock. To make the kin more interesting, these two men were married to sisters, Nancy Jane Yates and Syrilda Yates. Kelly Brock, also a descendant from the Brock ancestors told me at the noted annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet of April 4; Perry, I nd myself relating to the experiences of many of the topics you cover in your articles. When asked if he ever collected any junk iron, he assured me that he did and even assisted his father, Clarence Brock, who got into the collecting on a bigger scale. Kelly agrees that the seller was at the mercy of the buyers price and always took, with glee, whatever was offered for the scrap metals. Faithful readers since the inception of Perrys Prattle have reached plateaus that would be impossible to name. Two of my University of Florida friends, Jeral Smithgall, now living in Mobile and Randall Roberts, who has called Valparaiso home for 60 years, continue to read my columns. Jeral saves his papers for sons, Joel of McDonough, Georgia and Jerry of Orlando, to read when they visit the parents. Randall repeatedly reports Judge, I bundle up my newspaper articles and mail them to my sister, Louisa Roberts Harder in Ware, Mass. Jeral is a Ponce De Leon boy and Randall is a Bonifay native. Both expressed pleasure in now being able to read Hazels contributions, as they cover much of Holmes County history and happenings. Circuit Judge Kelvin Clyde Wells, our nephew in DeFuniak Springs, is a subscriber and regular reader of his uncle and aunts writing. He told me recently of sharing the article of the demise of all Florida non-lawyer county judges, with the current long time county judge in Walton County, Hon. David Green. My brother, Jim, is still regarded as my most meticulous and regular reader. He is also numbered as the strongest critic, constructive of course, of both his sister and brother. He jokingly states; Perry and Hazel have the best memory of any of the children in the family. Both are now remembering and writing about things that never happened! What better way of ending my working career from plowing crops and picking cotton on the farm to plucking chickens on the beach job to eleven years as probation and parole counselor to serving 4 terms performing criminal and civil duties as county judge and nally providing comforting reading as a late comer to the eld of journalism as the author of Perrys Prattle? See you all next week as we enter into the eleventh year of publication. With all the rains weve had lately we can be assured that an abundance of mosquitoes will be seen this season. In fact, they are already showing up Floridas outdoor recreational activities make mosquito awareness pertinent at all times. Here at the blueberry farm, those pesky biting insects are especially menacing for our unsuspecting visitors as well as for us and our workers. Health care workers and the media keep us alert to the danger of mosquitoborne diseases such West Nile virus and eastern equine encephalitis, both potentially life threatening. One Holmes County family learned last year the terrible consequences of contracting one of these. On June 29, 2012, Eddie White, a 39 year old white male of the Bethlehem community, was admitted to Southeast Ala. Medical Center with excruciating head ache and nausea. Within 12 hours he had noticeable loss of motor skills and the ability to speak or move. Within 24 hours he was in a coma. Is only early symptoms had been a general malaise with slight nausea and loss of appetite. On July 3, he was own to University of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham where he was eventually diagnosed with eastern equine encephalitis. The battle for his life continued there although the medical team was not optimistic about his chance of survival, let alone any hope of recovery. By August 7, any hope of recovery was abandoned and he was transferred to the nursing unit of Northwest Fla. Hospital in Chipley in a vegetative state. The medical staff had given up, but the family, his wife Felicia (King) and his parents, Bill and Judy White and his two sons, 14 year old Will and 9 year old Justin had not. Their strong Christian Faith guided them as they began the long battle of rehabilitation. Felicia can not praise the staff at Chipley Nursing and Rehab located in the NFC Hospital enough. Even though he was mostly unresponsive, they lovingly cared for his every need, continuing to administer physical therapy on a daily basis. Gradual results were noted and, one by one, he lost his trachea tube, his feeding tube, his brain shunt, his catheter. As his physical functions returned and his speech came back, he knew everyone; he knew their relationships; he remembered birthdays and other important dates. He has no symptoms of amnesia. On December 21, 2012 Eddie came home in time to celebrate Christmas with the family. He continues to make physical and mental progress. His physical therapy sessions have gone down from 5 per week to 2. He walks without the aid of a walker or wheel chair. He isnt driving an automobile yet, but he drives about the farm on a 4-wheel type buggy. Because of his fall risk, some member of the family is with him at all times, mostly his father while his Felicia is at work at WellsFargo bank in Bonifay and the boys are at school at Bethlehem. The family are involved in New Bayview Church of God where Sylvia Foskey is the current pastor. There they happily share their faith in the God who heals; the God who moves mountains. They also share the story of Eddies ordeal and healing anywhere they are permitted to. Though Eddie is not fully back to his old self, his wife sees glimpses of his former personality and she sees changes. One particular change is his love for music and singing. He never sang before, but now he sings along with the radio and he also sings in Church. Perhaps while he was in that coma he heard Heavenly music. The Whites would like to emphasize now their gratitude to God and to everyone who prayed and supported them in any way, including her employer Wells Fargo bank for their allowing her to work exible hours to accommodate Eddies medical visits and physical therapy. Their faith is strong that he will continue to improve and eventually regain all his functions as the brain slowly heals. Their main concern is that people will take precaution to protect themselves from the bite of that one mosquito that was infected. Use a repellant with Dete every time you are outdoors. Wear protective clothing, especially in the late afternoon and evening. (Young children and the elderly or anyone with compromised immune systems should be especially wary.) To control the breeding places, be vigilant inemptying any container that collects water such as pet dishes, animal waterers, bird baths, ower pots, garbage, old tires, some plants themselves. (I have a lot of Bromeliades that retain water in their crowns) Mud holes or any standing water should be drained. Pouring burnt oil on such places will also inhibit the breeding of the pests. Mosquito control is an expensive but an ongoing issue in Florida. Scientists continue to study a way of eradicating mosquitos in the same way that the screwworm y was eradicated. The city of Bonifay does spray inside the city, but it is hoped that the county will nd a way to eradicate some of the breeding places. In the meantime, we can each do our part by eradicating breeding places on our own property. We hope no one else has to experience what the White family has experienced.PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Will everyone please roll out the Happy Birthday greetings to Perrys Prattle effective today?

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 10, 2013 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Every now and then an innovation comes along that both fishermen and hunters can use in the outdoors. A new camera has hit the market that just about anyone can learn to use on the water or underwater. The brand name is GoPro and it has been out for some time, but they keep improving the product and it is easier to use. If you go to a store that sells them, you might find a monitor showing people jumping out of airplanes, snow skiing or scuba diving while wearing one. If you want to record a fishing trip and have your hands free this camera is for you. There are several ways you can mount this camera on your person or on the boat you will be fishing from. I went freshwater fishing the other day, turned on the camera and forgot about it until we were through. I could have mounted the camera on a suction cup which would have given me only a fixed angle, perhaps looking from the back of the boat or from the front looking back. On larger boats this is perfect for catching the action because on center console boats most of the fishing is done from the front. I was in a 12-foot john boat so there was the danger of stepping on the camera because it is so small. So I opted to use the head mount. If you have ever gigged frogs you are familiar with a head lamp worn, of course, on the head. This camera is so small you really dont know it is on your head. The real reason I bought this camera is to use underwater while tied to a fishing rod and reel. I thought when the Gulf finally cleared I could tie it to a rod and lower it to the desired depth that snapper would be located and watch the action. It comes with a waterproof case and is good to 180 feet. It would be kind of neat to see what is going on under your boat and not have to get in the water to do it. Try out the GoPro the next time you go. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netSpring gobbler season is in full swingFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Spring has of cially sprung in Florida. In the Panhandle the azaleas are blooming, the pleasant scent of orange blossoms is in the air in Central Florida, and folks in the Keys are gearing up for extra tourists. It also means spring gobbler season is in full swing. From helping hunters stay safe in wildlife management areas, to answering questions about regulations, to checking for poachers hunting over bait, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission of cers are engaged throughout the season. They are vital to ensuring Floridas residents and visitors can safely enjoy hunting in Florida for years to come. And the fact that peninsular Florida is the only place in the world where hunters can bag an Osceola turkey (one of the ve subspecies in North America) makes it a top hunting destination. FWC of cers ll a vital role in the states economic as well as environmental future. They have been busy this season already, dealing with cases involving bait, trespassing, overthe-bag-limit and hunting-outof-season in Glades, Santa Rosa, Alachua, Duval, Polk and Osceola counties. However, enforcing regulations isnt the only way in which FWC of cers contribute. The story of the wild turkey in Holmes County is a prime example of the tangible impact FWC of cers have made on conservation efforts and the relationship they have with stakeholders. In 1997, Of cer Larry Morris, an FWC of cer in Holmes County who has served since 1990, noticed a disturbing lack of wild turkeys in the county. Through his consistent communication with landowners and other members of the community, he learned others shared his concern and were interested in doing something about it. Through biological surveys, FWC biologist Larry Perrin led a team that con rmed there were no wild turkeys in Holmes County. In 1998, the FWC closed Holmes County to turkey hunting. For the next two years, FWC biologists and of cers, including Of cer Larry Morris, worked with stakeholders and partner organizations such as the National Wild Turkey Federation to trap 121 wild turkeys from other parts of the Panhandle and relocate them to Holmes County. The population boomed, as everyone had hoped. In addition to enforcement efforts after the turkeys were released, FWC of cers continued their outreach, passing along important information from FWC biologists. They spoke to landowners, hunters, farmers and others about the need to protect the restocked birds and encouraged them to improve the turkeys habitat through prescribed burning, timber thinning and planting crops that bene t turkeys. They received an overwhelming amount of support from the public people were taking ownership in the ght to conserve the areas natural resources. Today, the restoration of turkeys in Holmes County is considered a huge success. There is a 16-day spring hunting season, including quota hunts on state lands. Recent efforts have included annual population surveys, public meetings, one of which was held in Bonifay this past February, and continued communication by FWC of cers with members of their communities. BEAR-HUMANBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The number of bear-related calls received by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are on the rise in Northwest Florida. In 2002, the FWC logged 118 calls for the 16-county area stretching from Escambia County to Jefferson County. In 2012, that number rocketed to almost 1,700 calls. Bears are driven by the urge to eat and it doesnt matter to them whether its garbage or other easy sources of food such as bird seed or pet food. The key to keeping bears in the wild and out of your yard is denying them easy access to food. In Wakulla County, which has experienced a rapid human growth and rise in bear complaints in the past several years, two things have transpired to reduce human-bear con icts. For one thing, garbage pick-up is mandatory for all residents. Problems with garbage sitting for days in cans in outlying areas and becoming a target for hungry bears have been mostly resolved. Secondly, Waste Pro, the waste service company in the county, makes modi ed and bearresistant cans available to residents experiencing bear problems. Residents can receive a modi ed trash can for and extra fee. Even with the extra fee, many residents keep their garbage secured in the wildlife-resistant cans. In nearby Franklin County, the developers of St. James Bay, a planned residential development that will eventually total almost 500 homes, require the use of bear-resistant cans. To the west, theres no better example of a proactive approach in reducing bear issues than on U.S. Air Force Bases Hurlburt Field in Okaloosa County. Several years ago, Hurlburt Field of cials required the use of bear-resistant garbage cans and dumpsters of all base personnel, and implemented an education program on the dos and donts when living near bears. They were able to document more than a 70 percent decline in calls and complaints about bears. Elsewhere in Okaloosa County, communities and governmental leaders are working with the FWC to reduce human-bear con icts. For example, Fort Walton Beach has retro tted old plastic-lid dumpsters with reinforced lids to keep bears from raiding them for food scraps. The city also is installing inexpensive gate-hasp hardware on existing garbage cans to keep bears from household garbage. The nearby cities of Mary Esther and Valparaiso are similarly retro tting garbage cans used by residents. Although there are other notable successes in dealing with bears, the key to drastically reducing the number of problems in the future is cooperation between county governmental leaders and waste service companies to make reasonable options available for residents to keep their garbage secure. Providing bear-resistant garbage cans to the public and a willingness by the public to use those cans are the most important components needed to reduce human-bear con icts.CONFLICTDenying bears easy access to food is key to prevention STAFF SGT.

Ask your banker how you can be entered to win $250 toward an iPhone 5* From Staff ReportsCHICAGO Chris Walker of Holmes County won the dunk contest before the McDonalds All-American high school basketball game at the United Center. Walker, a University of Florida commitment who led Holmes County to the Class 1A state championship last month, had four solid dunks, including a windmill for 54 points to start, a one-handed slam for a perfect score of 60 and two strong dunks to close the competition. Walker nished with 226 points to top Aaron Gordon of Archbishop Mitty (San Jose, Calif.), who had 213 points, and Jabari Parker of Simeon (Chicago), who had 211. Gordon was the MVP Wednesday night as the West gained a 110-99 victory over the East squad. Gordon had 24 points and eight rebounds in front of 15,818. The East got within 9490 when Dakari Johnson scored with 4:40 left, but Gordon responded with a dunk and scored again to boost the Wests lead to 106-91. Andrew Wiggins had 19 points for the East, and Johnson had 12. Walker shot 2 for 6 from the eld and 0 for 2 at the free-throw line while scoring four points in 12 minutes. He added six rebounds, one assist, one blocked shot and one steal. Walker is scheduled to play in the Jordan Brand Classic on April 13 in Brooklyn. By BRANDON WALKER863-1111 ext. 1476 bwalker@pcnh,com PANAMA CITY Just before he stepped onto the court at the Halifax AllStar Classic on Saturday afternoon, Rutherford standout Jai Jencks had a message for his father. Right when we started, I told my dad that I wanted to come out here and win MVP today, Jencks said. My teammate (Jon Wade) won it last year, and I wanted to keep it at Rutherford. Jencks then went out and backed up his promise. Behind 14 points from Jencks and double-digit performances from three others, the East squad held off a furious rally in the games nal three minutes to earn a thrilling 8786 win at Gulf Coasts Billy Harrison Field House. The win marked the Easts third straight in the series, which is in its ninth year. Everybody had fun, said Malone head coach Steve Welch, who served as co-coach of the East with Gracevilles Matt Anderson. It was a great game with both teams taking turns making big plays. (The West) hit some big shots down the stretch. It was really one of the better games Ive seen over here. Despite leading by as many as 13 in the second half, the East was pushed to the limit on Saturday, as the West, which represented Santa Rosa, Walton and Okaloosa counties, nished the game on a 12-2 run over the nal three minutes. That cut the de cit to one point, and after getting a defensive stop on the Easts nal possession, the West took the ball with 28 seconds left and a chance to win the game. But West MVP Deshun Tuckers initial shot missed, as did Tyrone Culbreths putback. Culbreth got a second offensive rebound but was unable to get a shot off prior to the nal buzzer. We had our chances at the end, just couldnt get it to go in, said Choctawhatchee head coach Andy Thigpen, who coached the West. It was a fun game to be a part of, and Im proud of the guys. Thats a very good team on the other side. Owning a distinct size advantage, the East featured four players at 6-foot7 or better, while the Wests tallest player, Culbreth, is listed at 6-4. The West was able to get off to a quick start in the rst half, racing out to a 21-9 lead just six minutes into the game. The lead would eventually reach 13 points at 32-19 before the East reeled off a 13-0 run to knot the score late in the rst half. The East eventually took a 47-43 lead into halftime. The second half was just as close, as each team took turns delighting the crowd with highlight-worthy plays, one being a rimrattling, left-handed dunk by Malones Ty Baker that brought the crowd to its feet. Thats just Ty Baker, thats what he can do, said Jencks, who had a pair of dunks of his own. This is the best team Ive ever played with. For the West, Culbreth and Walton guard Ken Randolph each scored 14 points while Tucker added 13. Nicevilles Nick Haynes and Choctaws Michael Hawkins each added 10 points. Gracevilles Marquis White joined Jencks on the East with 14 points, while Baker and Rutherfords Kiki Williamson scored 10 each. There was a ton of talent out here today, on both sides, Welch said. EAST (87) Marquis White (Graceville) 14, Jai Jencks (Rutherford) 14, Ty Baker (Malone) 10, Kiki Williamson (Rutherford) 10, Austin Williams (Malone) 8, Jarodd Blount (Cottondale) 8, Raheem Wright (Wewahitchka) 8, D.J.

However, the basketball she earned as an award could have been split into thirds. Moore scored an event record 33 points in the Wests 81-58 triumph over the East at the Billy Harrison Field House. Her team was outnumbered, with Morgan Kennedys fractured foot reducing the West roster to seven players. The lower number was inconsequential, however, as Moore and the Choctawhatchee duo of Brittany Brown and Lauren Day were more than enough in a display of Ironwoman efforts. The only time the trio found a seat was at halftime in the game played under college rules with 20-minute halves. They combined for 61 points and Brown made her case for MVP with 14 of those to go along with 11 rebounds and more than 10 assists for a triple-double. Day added a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds, eight coming in the rst half when the West built an insurmountable lead. Moore, who scored more than 1,000 career points for Walton, credited Brown for setting her up with myriad easy looks. She broke Jon Wades barely year-old record of 30 points with a basket with 4:35 to play in giving the West a 71-50 lead. She added to the mark with a nal score three minutes later in upping the advantage to 77-56. We just wanted to go out there and play our best and thats what we did, Moore said. We did get tired, but we did what we had to do to get the W. Moore had 18 points in the rst half, which ended with the West ahead 4024. The East fell behind by eight points in the opening minutes on Days basket, but it weathered the surge with an 11-2 run capped by Alexis Ware scoring off a turnover for the Easts second and nal lead, 14-13. The East also held a 3-2 lead on one of JoJo Bookers two 3-pointers on the second basket of the game. Moore notched four of the Wests next six baskets turning a one-point de cit into a 25-16 bulge with seven minutes to go in the rst half. She also had one of three 3-pointers to put the West ahead 30-20 and added a lay-in and a free throw to end the rst-half scoring. Day controlled the offensive glass, Brown dished out assists and added intensity on defense despite not getting a breather and the East turned the ball over 15 times in the opening 20 minutes. The East nished with 23 turnovers, was outrebounded 48-37 and offered the West far too many second chances to remain competitive. Turnovers also proved critical when the East clawed back to within 50-39 on Ware eld goal with 11 minutes to play. The East had three opportunities to pull near single digits. But it had three straight turnovers and Moores nal 3-pointer erased hopes of a rally and gave the West a 64-44 cushion four minutes later. We kept standing around and giving up the rebounds, East coach Heather Hingson said. Then we had the three turnovers. We didnt have good execution. Ware nished with 14 points and ve rebounds to earn East MVP honors. Mikayla Moore scored 11 and Jasmine Belser eight for the East. Cassidy Anderson added eight points on four eld goals for the West. Nine of the Easts 11 players scored, while all seven on the West tallied at least two points. Moore and the West maintained control of the series with its seventh win in nine years. It marked the rst time a winning team scored more than 80 points since 2009. The 23-point de cit also was the largest since the same year, when the West rolled to a 112-73 victory. We had fun, Moore said. Its a good feeling to play in your last game and get a win.

Along with many other visitors was U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland. We had a wonderful visit where we spent a little over three hours at the hospital, and I was so impressed with the quality of the facility itself; it had a wonderful layout, Southerland said. We had a tour of every inch of the building. The emergency room and the capacity that they have there to take care of the citizens of Holmes County and the surrounding counties and even the people who travel through on I-10. He said he found it impressive what the hospital can accommodate not only on an emergency basis but on an inpatient capacity. We met people there today that were in the hospital because of pneumonia, the u, and I am just amazed and very impressed at the level of care they were receiving, Southerland said. These are things that people really need to know about, one of which is the rehab facility. The rehab facility there at Doctors Memorial Hospital treats and serves about 25 patients a day, both inpatient as well as outpatient, as well as the pool they have there to do in-thewater rehab; its just an amazing facility. Not only did the facility impress him, he said the pride residents had in DMH also impressed him. I noticed the pride of the community, Southerland said. They were celebrating the veyear anniversary of the facility, even though it looks brand new because everyone takes such good care of the facility.

While many may not nd a rodent as a rst choice for a pet, with some insight and guidance you may be more receptive to the idea of a small hamster or rat becoming a suitable pet for your family. Rats are probably the most social and interactive of the small rodents, said Dr. Sharman Hoppes, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Rats are gentle, seldom bite and are active during the day and are fairly easy to take care of. Rats do not have special dietary needs or sensitive stomachs, although they do need a good quality rodent block or pellet. The seed mix diets are not a nutritionally adequate diet. When picking out a pet rodent, you should select an active, social rodent with clean eyes, a clean nose and normal teeth. The skin should be well-groomed and clean. There should be no lumps or bumps on their skin, Hoppes said. Small rodents, such as mice and hamsters, can bite more and tend to be more active at night. Guinea pigs and chinchillas are a bit bigger and are gentle pets, but they have special dietary needs and their teeth continuously grow. Gerbils are unlikely to bite, if handled gently. They have few health problems and are the cleanest of all the commonly kept pet rodents. If you are more interested in observing your pet and dont have as much time, a gerbil, hamster or mouse is an option as they are happy living in their cage. If you want a socially active pet that needs lots of attention and activity, a rat, chinchilla or guinea pig is a great pet, Hoppes said. Rats are so social that they should not be housed alone. If you are a night owl, then hamsters may be best since they tend to sleep all day and run in their wheel all night. One important aspect of keeping a pet rodent is that their cage needs to be cleaned one to two times a week to keep ammonia levels down. All pet rodents need a clean large cage, chew toys, ladders, plastic or PVC pipe, and daily interaction. Beddings such as Paper, aspen or walnut shavings are best, while corncob, pine, and cedar shavings should be avoided, Hoppes said. Rodents need fresh water and food constantly. Guinea pigs and chinchillas have a special need for timothy hay since they have continuously growing cheek teeth. This hay helps keep the teeth from overgrowing. Additionally, guinea pigs need vitamin C daily. All rodents can have a small amount of fruits and vegetables for treats. Chinchillas also need daily dust baths, and they and guinea pigs are very sensitive to heat and humidity. Both are susceptible to heatstroke in temperatures as low as 80-85 degrees, especially if the humidity is higher than 40 percent. Pet rodents do not need vaccinations, Hoppes said. There are few diseases to be concerned with, and while salmonella infection has been documented, it is rare. Rat bite fever, caused by a bacterial infection, may occur after a rat bite. This can be prevented by immediately disinfecting any bite wound from a rat. While diseases are uncommon in rodents, rats are prone to mammary tumors, and hamsters often have diarrhea (wet tail). Many rodents are also prone to respiratory disease. Guinea pigs and chinchillas are susceptible to ring worm so any hair loss or patchy areas on the skin should be seen by a veterinarian for treatment immediately. The life span of pet rodents varies. Mice and hamsters generally live one to two years, rats two to three years, gerbils three to ve years, guinea pigs ve to seven years, and chinchillas live eight to 12 years or longer.ABOUT PET Ta TA LKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

What are you laughing at? my wife asked. Im just thinking of Mrs. Ammon. When I went to school we didnt need any armed guards, we had Mrs. Ammon and nobody crossed her. The news report went on to say how they were trying to put armed guards at every school in our country. I suppose that is a good idea, I do not know all the ins and outs of the politicalness of that report. Everything these days seems to have some kind of a political angle to it. Now that political angle is intruding itself into the public school system. This is all an attempt to protect our school children. I am all for that. I was thinking, however, that when I was a youngster we did not need that sort of thing. We had Mrs. Ammon and her infamous hickory stick. Very few people remember a time when a teacher had, as one of her tools for education, a hickory stick and knew how to wield it, and wield it they did. Somebody may ask how I know about that. Very simply. I am the product of a teacher wielding the hickory stick. It is hard now to remember the occasion that called for the application of that hickory stick. Actually, there was more than one occasion calling for such teacher and student interaction. The old saying was that our teacher would apply the Board of Education to the Seat of Learning. Believe me when I say, I earned a degree in that. Somebody will say, Things have changed. I will agree that things have changed, but most things have not changed for the better. Back in the day when I was a member of the public education system, the teachers were in charge. A basic rule in our house prevailed, If you get a paddling in school, you get a paddling at home. It was assumed the teacher was right. I distinctly remember my rst interaction with my teacher in this regard. How can you forget such a thing? At that time, teachers were too busy to put up with any kind of fooling around in a classroom. Do not get me wrong, my teacher made it fun most of the time. For the ones who, like me, took it too far, she knew how to stop it dead in its tracks. Mr. Snyder, the teacher would say in a very stern tone of voice. Is that you making all that noise? I knew what was to follow. Mr. Snyder, please go to the principals of ce and I will join you shortly. Oh boy. Those familiar words bring back haunting memories of my visit to the principals of ce. You can be sure; Mrs. Ammon would not come into the principals of ce, spank you and then go back to her class. On some occasions, I would have preferred her to spank me and get it over with. The rst thing she had to do was explain to me why what I did was wrong and disruptive to the class. Then, she had to explain to me how this paddling I was about the cat was going to hurt her more than it did me. For the life of me, I could never gure out where it hurt her more than it did me. I knew exactly where it hurt me and for the rest of the day it would be quite dif cult for me to sit down in my chair. Not only did my posterior glow in pain, but the snickers of my fellow students were even worse. At the time of the application of the hickory stick, I really did not like Mrs. Ammon. Looking back, I have a different perspective. I now know that she really had an interest in me as a person. She was trying to discipline me in ways in which I needed discipline from someone like her. Years later, I went back and visited my old teacher, Mrs. Ammon. I took to her some books I had written and published. She said she remembered me, I really do not know if she did or not. I had to do one thing and that was to thank her. I want to thank you, Mrs. Ammon, for teaching me to read and to write. Then I handed her my books. She seemed to be so very happy, but not as happy as I was. This teacher made a difference in my life that I did not realize until I was older. One thing Mrs. Ammon taught me was that I should not get away with anything. There is a moment of accountability everybody must face. Mrs. Ammon was making sure that I was facing up to the realities of life before I did too much damage to my life. It is sad that the politics have taken over our education system today. It is sad that we do not have any Mrs. Ammons with their hickory sticks. When I think of Mrs. Ammon I think of what Solomon writes, He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (Proverbs 13:24 KJV). It is my opinion that we need more Mrs. Ammons in our school classrooms and less, a lot less, politics. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B7Special to ExtraBETHLEHEM The Bethlehem School PTO formed in September of 2012, and has had an extremely productive and successful rst year. In their rm support of the school, its staff and the students, they have contributed to many special events held at the school, as well as organized fundraising programs to raise money to benet the school. They are also taking part in planning events and programs they are hopeful to host and contribute to in the future. Their efforts so far have won them praise from teachers and parents, and the community as a whole. These are some of the special events the PTO has helped contribute to: Veterans Day Luncheon: The Special Events Committee hosted local veterans at a luncheon served by the culinary class and provided patriotic musical entertainment for the guests. Christmas Dance/Valentines Day Dance: Volunteers decorated the student activity center with lovely and colorful decorations for all the students to enjoy at the two dances. Homecoming and Alumni Dinner: The Special Events Committee decorated the student activity center with Blast from the Past decorations, as well as the Choral Suite, in preparation for the Homecoming celebration and Alumni dinner on January 25th, and hosted a lovely buffet of nger foods for all attending alumni. Teachers Appreciation Luncheon: This was hosted by the PTO on March 22nd, just before the teachers and staff left for spring break. The theme was Chicken Soup for the Teachers Soul, and included homemade soups, sandwiches and salads made by the parents, as well as a motivational speaker to inspire them to continue their good works as educators of our children. Door prizes and small gifts were donated and given out to the teachers and staff as well. It turned out to be a wonderful day for everyone involved and everyone who attended. For each of these events, the Spitshine Committee was in charge of cleaning and preparing all the rooms used for the special events, as well as the cleanup after. These are some of the fundraising projects the PTO has organized this school year: The Fall Festival: The PTO was proud to host a successful Fall Festival table, and one of the teachers graciously offered her services as a Fortune Teller. Homecoming 2013: Chances were sold on a beautiful Homecoming Basketball Cake during the Homecoming games. Pizza Hut Cards: The PTO Fundraising Committee headed and organized the sale of Pizza Hut promotional cards. Purchasers who spend $15 on any Pizza Hut purchase receive up to 12 medium pizzas for free. All the cards were sold, so this was a very successful program for the PTO and the school. My Coke Rewards: Also hosted by the PTO Fundraising Committee, Bethlehem School is taking part in the MyCokeRewards Program. This allows for points to be awarded to the school by creating a My Coke Rewards account online and entering codes or by sending Coke product caps to the school which are then added to the account. These points will be used to purchase school related items. Easter Bunny Pictures/ Easter Baskets: The PTO Fundraising and Special Events Committees were proud to bring the Easter Bunny to Bethlehem School. Free pictures were taken for Pre-K through 6th grade, and the students also received a special treat. Chances were sold on two Easter baskets, one boy and one girl, with proceeds going to the PTO general fund. For the upcoming First Annual Springtime Heritage Day at Bethlehem School scheduled for April 13, the PTO will host a live auction, plant sale and old time photos. All funds raised will be used to help cover the costs of future projects and special events, and for programs in support of the teachers, such as the Teachers Angel Project. Current and Future Projects headed by the Bethlehem School PTO: Greenhouse and Garden Project: The PTO Agricultural Committee worked hard to organize the cleaning and preparation of an on site greenhouse at the school, and is currently growing plants for sale at the upcoming Springtime Heritage Day Festival on April 13th. They also applied for and were awarded a grant by Walmart Stores to purchase some of the supplies needed for their future plans for this project, which include raised bed gardens, a buttery garden, and classroom projects for the elementary students. Arts and Music: PTO President and Music and Arts Committee Chairperson Tamra Kriser has played an integral role in the plans to add a music and arts program to the Bethlehem School curriculum. She drafted a petition to do so, which was signed by over 700 community members, including students and parents who support the plans for this new program. The Holmes District School Board was approached with the request in January of this year, and the petition was submitted for their consideration. The School Board has assured Mrs. Kriser that they are in the process of moving towards this goal. At this time, the rst annual Bethlehems Got Talent talent show has been approved, and is currently being planned for sometime in May where the students performing and visual arts talents will be showcased. Teachers Angel Project: This is a PTO fundraising project which will help teachers to get the supplies they need for their classrooms without having to purchase the items themselves. Bethlehem School PTO Quarterly Newsletter: The rst copy of the newsletter will be designed by the PTO Publicist Committee by yearend, and will be released quarterly from that point forward. Bethlehem School Store: There will be extensive involvement by the PTO with the organizing and management of an in-house school store at Bethlehem School. They will also involve the business class students, who will be volunteering their free time to manage the store and sell the school supplies and small treats that will be stocked for sale to the students. There is money in a school fund for this project already, and Walmart Stores has a grant available to purchase supplies as well. All proceeds generated from the store will benet the school, and its students. About the Bethlehem School PTO: This Parent Teacher Organization is a service-oriented grassroots organization headed by concerned and dedicated parents of students at Bethlehem School. It was originally approved by the former principal of the school, Mr. Zeb Brown, and organized by the current elected President Tamra Kriser. The rst meeting was held on September 20, 2012 where Mr. Brown and Mrs. Kriser explained the goals of the organization and the Administration to promote better communication between the parents and staff at the school, as well as head projects and events that would benet the students and enhance their overall educational experience. The Bethlehem School PTO has successfully completed many of these tasks in their rst year of operation, and they look forward to future contributions they will be able to make. The current Executive Board of the PTO includes: Mrs. Tamra Kriser as President, Mrs. Cheryl Powell as Vice President, Mrs. Christine LiCausi as Secretary, Ms. Gynell Pettis-Hunter as Treasurer, and Ms. Gina Schultz as PTO Startup Advisor. The organization consists of over 30 active members, including both parents and teachers, and they hold ofcial meetings on the second Tuesday of each month. A set of ofcial PTO Bylaws was adopted by the Executive Board soon after elections were held, and Executive Board meetings are held after each PTO monthly meeting to discuss any further plans and actions needed by the organization. There are also six ofcial committees within the PTO. They are as follows: The Special Events Committee, headed by Mrs. Donna Carnley as Chairperson, and Ms. Gina Schultz as Co-Chairperson. The Fundraising Committee, headed by Ms. Gynell PettisHunter as Chairperson, and Ms. Heather Clark as CoChairperson.
