This year marks the 10th year the Friends of Falling Waters, with the help of many great demonstrators, crafters and volunteers, have been able to give people a glimpse of a more carefree time. The Legends & Lore Festival is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and will have a wide variety of seldomseen sites as well as arts and crafts, music and food. The annual event features Civil War re-enactors, a blacksmith, candlemakers, basket weavers, live alligators, wood crafters, storytelling and much more. You sometimes dont know where you are going until you get there. The Legends & Lore Festival started out as a Saturday night program in the fall of the year and now we are celebrating the 10th annual Legends & Lore Festival, Park Service Specialist Scott Sweeney said. The event now takes place the third Friday and Saturday in April and has grown into one of the most signi cant cultural and historical events in the Florida Panhandle, he said. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Two environmental consultants went toe-to-toe during the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting on April 9 one rm ghting for the spot of environmental consultant overseeing the clean-up of the local land ll and the other rm ghting to remain. Belinda Pollock with CDG Engineers, the countys current environmental consultant group, was present to give an update on the land ll site. Pollock said even though the site contamination is low, it is still contaminated with petroleum and after the last site screening evaluation it ranked one point higher than what is allowed for site cleanup. We double checked to see if we could have it rescored, but weve found even if we did it wouldnt yield better results, Pollock said. For now, the site is at a standstill. Shortly afterward, Michael Tadlock, marketing director for Wes Environmental LLC, stepped up to ask for the boards consideration to make Wes Environmental the countys new environmental consultant. We are a small company that brings big results, Tadlock said. Weve got three geologists that combined bring 60 years of experience, we treat the property as we would our very own and we are a local company. We hire in Holmes County, we shop in Holmes County, we live in Holmes County, Tadlock said. We also rmly believe we can get the site rescored and continue progress so you can have a swift and complete closure to this project. Tadlock said their geologists have found a chemical in the soil that could boost their rating by a point if allowed to rescore. Consultants compete for HC job HOLMES COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Relay for Life of Holmes Countys main event brings an exciting conclusion to this years relay efforts from 6 p.m. on April 19 to 6 a.m. on April 20 at Memorial Park in Bonifay.

We now live in a world of instant gratication, but not so many years ago, you would have bartered for the necessities of life like food, shelter and a good bar of soap, Sweeney said. This spring festival at Falling Waters State Park recreates that time where neighbors helped neigh bors and instead of run ning to the store for every little thing. We knew how to make things with our own two hands and x stuff that broke, Sweeney said. In todays world most everything has that little Made in China sticker and is quick to hit the bot tom of the trash can at the rst sign of failing. One of the unique things about this event is that all of the crafts, artwork and un usual items are made lo cally and that little sticker earlier mentioned is not al lowed in the park. This event also gives children the opportunity to experience many of the crafts and skills their grandparents relied on for day-to-day living, Sweeney said. The main focus for Friday is set aside for the fourth graders from Hol mes, Jackson, Bay and Washington County to edu cate our area youngsters about these various crafts and skills to take them back in time to experience life from over 100 years ago, but the general public is always welcome. On Sat urday, the energy level gets bumped up a notch with live music throughout the day, Civil War re-enactors, living history demonstra tions, animal exhibits, local artists and crafters, great food and more, Sweeney said. Falling Waters State Park is a place lled with natural wonders and a rich cultural history. The park was established in 1962 to preserve what is consid ered one of Floridas most unique geological features but the park is so much more. During the ensuing ve decades, Falling Waters State Park added many amenities and to this day continues to improve. The parks improve ments can be attributed to the dedicated staff that continues to strive to make this state park one of the best, Sweeney said. How ever, in recent years the local community has be come more involved with assisting in preserving and protecting one of the Floridas Panhandle hid den treasure. This years event is in memory of Raymond Smoker. Smoker was a big part of the success of the Leg ends & Lore Festival. This years event is dedicated to his memory for all of his hard work and effort in the countless events he played a part in, Sweeney said. His love for the simple things in life has inspired us all. We will miss him seeing you here with us. Smoker was one of the festivals most avid supporters. He was lost to us this year while working with horses and helping others. He is a great loss to our event and the community as a whole, Sweeney said. CE C ILIA SPEAR S | Times-Advertiser Belinda Pollock with CDG Engineers, the countys current environmental consultant group, was present to give an update on the landll site and contended with Wes Engineering, LLC on if the site could be rescored, which will determine if CDG Engineers will remain as the countys consultant or if it will go to Wes Engineering, LLC. It would be of no cost to transfer the project to us, Tadlock said. It would be a cost-free and seamless transition. Pollock assured the board the site may be able to be rescored, but she knew it wouldnt be ranked any higher. Tadlock insisted if the board would ap point his rm as the countys consultant, then they could get that score higher. Put your money where your mouth is, Commissioner Kenneth Williams told Tadlock. If you can rescore it higher, then the position is yours. Tadlock agreed with the boards de cision that if Wes Environmental could return with a rescored site evaluation, then they would be the new contracted environmental consultants for the coun ty, a state-funded and county-appointed position. The board also approved to award Melvin Engineering with the design of Sandpath Road Phase II, a sidewalk project. Chairman Monty Merchant said there is an issue with the spotlights for the courthouses ag pole constantly being out at night. We need to put a light on it or take it down, Merchant said. The board agreed to see if the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce could see about taking it down every night and putting it up every morning. Commissioner Bill Parish was unani mously chosen to be the auctioneer at the auction of surplus county items on April 12. Merchant also asked about maintain ing the landscape around the courthouse and was assured there was a landscape architect on staff to get started. It just doesnt seem to make any sense to pay for the courthouse to be beautied and then let the lawn take it over, Merchant said. A special session was held at 7:30 a.m. April 16, and the next regularly scheduled meeting of the commissioners is set for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30.

Instead, it addressed a serious issue plaguing the species in the Bay County area. The Panama City area has been branded a hot spot for illegal dolphin interaction, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in partnership with local businesses, is working to change that. The class targeted the areas wild dolphin tour operators, and provided tips for responsible practices to avoid harassment of dolphins for the roughly 30 people in attendance. Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act it is illegal to feed, touch or pursue wild dolphins, and noncompliance could result in a $5,000 ne for tour operators. FWC Maj. Bruce Cooper, who oversees law enforcement efforts in the Panhandle, said illegal dolphin interactions have been an issue in the Panama City area for the last 15 years, but incidents have escalated in the last few years due to habitual feeding of dolphins. Our priority is to protect the dolphin, but at the same time we want to protect your businesses, Cooper said. Were at a point in time right now where we need to make some changes. Cooper said the FWC has set aside $10,000 this year to plant undercover of cers on tour boats this summer to see whether or not operators are following the rules. Its become a vicious cycle, and we want to move away from that, Cooper said. Whats happening is theyre becoming more and more dependant on humans. Denis Richard, owner of the dolphin cruise company Water Planet, presented a list of dolphin dos and donts to the audience, citing ignorance, greed and complacency as the root of the problems. As we abuse this resource, were cutting the branch were sitting on, Richard said. The fact that youre here tells me that youre doing a great effort and were going in the right direction. Richard estimated there are about 25 established dolphin tour operators in Bay County, and said he has seen patrons try to feed dolphins everything from sandwiches to beer and cigarettes. The organizers of the seminar partnered with the Bay County Tourist Development Council, which will provide a spotlight on the agencys website for tour companies that complete the class. The seminar also featured presentations from biologists from Gulf World, Sea World and the FWC. FWC biologist Elsa Haubold presented data from a 2011 survey conducted in Bay County in which 55 percent of businesses said they were aware feeding dolphins was illegal, but only 40 percent said it was harmful. Haubold said many issues stem from lack of education, and commended the crowd for being proactive. To me this is phenomenal to have you all here, Haubold said. The government cant just come in and wave a heavy stick. Its going to take the community to solve all of these problems. FWC targets illegal dolphin feeding SPECIAL TO TIMES-ADVERTISER From Staff Reports BONIFAY Bonifay Fire-Rescue was dispatched to South Waukesha Street and Evans Avenue on Sunday for a commercial structure re, according to a news release from the Bonifay Fire Department.

On the heels of celebrating 10 years of publication, the Prattler feels a fulledged commercial coming on for the Prattle and for the Heritage of Washington County book. Many activities came to Chipley this past weekend Relay for Life, Flea Across Florida with yard sales and ea market vendors on every corner, and the concert at Spanish Play House on Saturday night, featuring Big River Bluegrass, which concluded the events. Hester and I participated in all of the above, plus attended other events during the week. Included was Ms. Lotta Davis 101st Birthday Reception held at First Presbyterian Church on April 7 and the Oral Interpretation presentation by Carol Saunders and her Chipola College Students at the Chipley Kiwanis Club noon meeting held at Pattillos on Tuesday April 9. We also treated ourselves to dinner at Baileys Restaurant on Thursday night. The 10th year celebration continues as accolades come forth for Perrys Prattle. Wade Webb told me that Ms. Lottas event that he is a regular in reading my articles and inquired as to my source of research. He seemed surprised with the answer that most of my material comes from memories and experiences of the past. Catherine Jeffries Braxton, a Cottondale business person, who we have known since Chuck Wagon days in Chipley, apologized to Hester for interrupting our dinner at Baileys. She was highly complimentary of the historic materials found in each weeks Prattle. She mentioned her maiden name of Jeffries, explaining that James Arthur Jefferies married Marie White of the Poplar Head community and Annie Jeffries married Dempsey J. Brock and all the large family of children all were given names beginning with the letter C. She did not mention owning the Heritage Book and I need to let her know all of the above in included in that publication. On Friday of the ea market event, Hester and I worked the West U.S. Highway 90 corridor as long as our energy held out. We encountered vendors, Steve and Jan Mason, set up on the grounds of St. Matthews Episcopal Church. They were accompanied by eightyear-old granddaughter, Ella, visiting from Atlanta. The Masons reported excellent sales and were almost sold out a noon time and were folding empty tables preparing to call it a day. Also at that location, we met up with kinfolk, Dana Brock and wife, Janet, with a display of nursery plants and home made specialty arts and crafts items of bird houses made from gourds, beautifully decorated and pleasing to the eye. They were joined by Penny Brock, wife of Donald Brock, who displayed her own gorgeous paintings of various scenes and subjects. Dana is the grandson and Penny if the granddaughter-in-law of Same Brock and Comilla Hall Brock, whose story was written by daughter, Trudell Brock Washington, and printed in noted Heritage Book. These family members missed buying a book before the sell outs on previous printings and both jumped at the opportunity to purchase one each which the Prattler just happened to have in his vehicle. Promises were also received from both that they would attend the June 15 Brock Reunion to be held at the Agriculture Center in Bonifay. Out second day of dropping in on more yard sales, took us to the Book Sale at the Washington County Library. We encountered Judy Corbus parents as we did the previous day. Mr. Corbus commented on his enjoyment of reading my writings. Both parents have been coming to Chipley for 25 years or more and joined in working at Watermelon Festivals just as if they were on the payroll. For the past two years, they have made Chipley their homes and can be seen actively working at the June watermelon event. Also in the library, we encountered Susan Jones Cook, the daughter of the late Vern Jones and Merle Jones. After giving a glowing report on Perrys Prattle, she told me she still remembers my compliment on her uncle, Paul Jones, who was in the eighth grade at Vernon when I arrived there. I well remember telling her that Paul, who looked like a grown man to me, gave me protection from the older boys who attempted to thump the ears of an over grown, but youthful, Perry Wells, who had just arrived at the big school from the small Brackin School. After a time-out at noon on Saturday, your writer attended the sh fry for the Senior Men of the county held at Daniels Lake. James Earl Guy heads this informal gathering and has been especially attentive to this Senior Person. He con rmed that he and wife, Naomi, will be at the 1944 Vernon High School Reunion to be held Saturday, April 20. At the sh fry I had a conversation with Ronnie Brock of the Sand Hill Brocks whose wife is Wanda Brock. He is a nephew of my 1944 classmate, Emma Lou Chesser Tew, who plans to attend the reunion, accompanied by daughters, Sharon and Nancy. I also had a promise from Ronnie that he will attend the reunion for our clan of Brocks in June. Topping off a week lled with wonderful experiences was when Ken Ruth visited Hester and me in out home. Ken and wife, Betty, were our caretakers at the Northwest Florida Music Park and Campground for many years. He carried on his craft of building clocks, many of them especially crafted for bluegrass performers who made appearances at the bluegrass festivals. Ken numbers among the list of those who have read Perrys Prattle since its beginning and made his purchase of the Heritage of Washington County book immediately upon its rst printing. The remaining books have dwindled from the 200 received in August to 37 now in the hands of the Prattler. Call me at 6381016 for your copy. They are $64.20 when picked up in Chipley or $70 when mailed. My email address if perry1000@bellsouth.ne t See you all next week. Recently I watched an episode of HGTV s Flea Market Flips. One of the requirements for the teams involved is to repurpose one item that they nd at the ea market. On this particular episode, an old fashioned threeburner oil stove was chosen to repurpose. It was all metal built on 4 legs, similar to ones I can recall from childhood which might have been used in apartment. It had no oven. I can remember a cousin, a newly wed who lived near us, having one like that. Kerosene was purchased in a one gallon or 5 gallon can often from the rolling store which carried a tank on the back end of the vehicle. On the TV show they sanded the rust off, painted the metal and laid a piece of heavy glass over the burners to make a side table to be used as a bar. I Dont recall (or I stopped watching) if somebody bought it. But it started me thinking about how cooking has changed in my lifetime. When Jack and I married and moved into an apartment in Gainesville, we had a 4burner kerosene stove with an oven. Id never cooked on anything but my Mamas Home Comfort wood burning stove. It was state of the art and I remember when a travelling salesman sold it to our family. It was much larger than the other 4burner wood range which she had used. That stove turned out too many to count bakers full of corn pone and homemade biscuit not to mention the bushels of sweet potatoes it baked. I learned to bake cakes on the wood stove using white lard rendered at home for the shortening. My Grandma Wells had a beautiful green enamel wood burning range, the fanciest one I recall. It had a reservoir to hold hot water as did the Home Comfort my Mama had. Grandmas also had a warming closet above the range to keep dinner hot till the workers got home from the eld. For many years, I have used the base of Grandmas green enamel stove base as a coffee table base. Uncle Josh Wells salvaged it for me. The rst thing I tried to bake in the kerosene oven was a disaster. I had made a beautiful cherry pie with a lattice crust and it had baked to perfection. We were going to Cedar Key with Sam and Lucille Polston and eat when we returned. So I pulled the rack out to take my pie out and the rack tipped, dumping my pie on the oven door. Lucille quickly grabbed a turner and ipped it back into the pan, somewhat scrambled, but edible. When we moved to Bonifay in 1951 and had an apartment in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Terrel Creel, we cooked on an antique electric stove that must have been a prototype. It stood up on four legs. Four burners were at one end and the oven was at the other. It was the rst of the waist high ovens that became popular as built-ins and remain so today. The one at the Creel house was exciting to use as it would shoot sparks and dance about upon occasion. More than anything else, microwave ovens have revolutionized the way we cook, not that I actually cook a lot of things in the thing. Yet I nd I can hardly prepare a meal without using the microwave in some way. I recall the rst I heard of microwave cooking, Mrs. Sally Childers was our extension home economist, and we had some one come to the fair building on Highway 90 and talk about a way of cooking without heat. I dont recall the word microwave being used, but we were amazed at the speed with which things would heat up. My brother Jim and his wife Lavoughan were the rst in our family to get one. He proudly demonstrated how it would boil a cup of water in 2 minutes. I have gone from using a wood stove to a kerosene stove to an antique electric stove to a full size electric range to a built in oven and counter top stove and back to a 36-inch drop in range. I have never had a gas range except in an ef ciency apartment while on vacation. Neither have I owned a glass smooth topped range. I was afraid it might not heat my huge jelly-making pot fast enough. I still enjoy cooking, but as my energy level wanes and my memory span shortens I am thinking more and more of not having a cooking stove at all. My how cook stoves have changed over the years Prattler enjoys many weekend activities The clock designed and built by Ken Ruth.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com Wednesday, April 17, 2013 A Page 4 Section Dear Editor, It was recently reported in the HCTA that an ambulance worth what? $200,000? was out of commission due to the wheel balancing machine being broken and there was no funding to x it. My rst thought was why not use the spare? Next was that the only wheel balancing machine available? No, Eastern Diesel who works on big trucks has one available 24/7. Knowing that most businesses and most likely governments have proceeds for processing small items without much fuss, why not get it done? Whats a wheel balance $20 to $30 at most? To potentially put the lives of the citizens of Holmes County at risk for this reason is beyond absurd. Its at out irresponsible. Whoever dropped the ball on this should be red. If Holmes County still had a county administrator this would not have happened. One is certainly needed. Im glad they nally quit hauling free dirt and rock to a few select. That was brought up Maybe 10 years ago and I got no where, even going through Tallahassee. Now I hope they can afford a wheel balancing machine. Dick Basht Bonifay Letter to the EDITOR

Special to the News TALLAHASSEE In recognition of April 8-12 as Wild re Awareness Week in the State of Florida, the Florida Division of Emergency Management encourages all Floridians to take the opportunity to update wild re emergency plans and learn how best to protect themselves and their property from the danger of wild res. Wild res can occur year round in Florida, said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan W. Koon. Have a current emergency plan and be proactive in your efforts to keep your home and family safe during a re emergency by taking necessary precautions. Florida experiences more than 4,600 wild res, burning nearly 110,000 acres of land in a typical year. This year, Florida has faced over 1,000 wild res on 20,430 acres. The three leading causes of wild res are arson, uncontrolled yard debris or trash res, and lightning. The National Fire Protection Associations Firewise program encourages homeowners to use prevention measures to decrease re threats around their homes, including planting re-resistant vegetation, trimming trees to a height of 15 feet near structures, clearing brush up to 30 feet around your home, and keeping roofs and gutters clear of debris, such as leaves and pine needles. Along with Firewise prevention measures, of cials urge residents to follow these guidelines set by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service (FFS): 1. Check with local city or county of cials to see if there are any burn restrictions in the area. 2. Keep res contained to an 8-foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel. Fires must be at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from homes, 50 feet from public roads and 150 feet from occupied buildings. 3. Obtain a burning authorization from the Florida Forest Service for piles larger than 8 feet in diameter. 4. Check the weather and dont burn on windy days or when humidity is below 30 percent. 5. Never leave a re unattended, and make sure it is completely out before leaving. 6. Keep a shovel and water hose handy in case the re escapes containment. 7. Report any suspicious activity to the Arson Alert Hotline at 1-800-342-5869. Special to the News GAINESVILLE Although April 22 is designated generally as Earth Day, it is observed by farm families every day. Floridas farmers and ranchers take care of our bountiful natural resources. Their livelihoods depend upon the good health of the land and water around them. Across the state farmers, ranchers and nursery plant growers have implemented state-of-the art irrigation systems. These systems have dramatically reduced water use on farm properties. According to eld evaluations by Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services personnel, conservation measures employed by farm families save almost 11 billion gallons of freshwater each year. The savings occur in all regions. For example, of cials at north Floridas Suwannee River Water Management District report that, in this substantially rural area, farmers and ranchers are saving more than one billion gallons annually. Innovation by farm owners has also improved water quality. This improvement is a longterm commitment, despite the nancial challenges agricultural operations face. Intensive testing of nutrient use by soils and plants has allowed farmers to apply only the minimum amount of fertilizer plants need to grow. Dairy producers have adopted containment structures that recycle water and animal waste for corn and other forage crops on the farm, preventing releases of nutrients into surrounding environments. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has determined that citrus growers in south-central Florida reduced nitrogen levels in groundwater by nearly 33 percent in three years with their advanced management efforts. The South Florida Water Management District has reported that farmers in the Everglades Agricultural Area slashed phosphorous levels by 71 percent in water owing from their properties during the 2012 reporting year. Farm operators support Floridas natural resources in other ways. They maintain greenspace and wildlife habitat. And they control invasive, nonnative species introduced through our seaports and air terminals. Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick praised farm families for their excellent management of natural resources. Our farmers and ranchers make our quality of life possible, Hoblick said. They do this every day while they grow the food, ber and renewable fuels we all need. I am proud of them and their many successes. On this years Earth Day and every day, I urge all Floridians to remember the many contributions agricultural producers provide for us, Hoblick added. They are the earths rst stewards and the keys to our future sustainability as a society. Earth Day is every day on the farm Wild re Awareness

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 17, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section The Alabama state record for striped bass has been broken by 15 pounds. James R. Bramlett of Dora, Ala., fishing near a warmwater outlet of the Gorgas Steam Plant near Parish, northwest of Birmingham, caught a 70-pound striped bass Feb. 28 eclipsing the record of 55 pounds that has stood for 54 years. The fish already has been approved as the new Alabama state record and if approved by the International Game Fish Association it will become the new world record for land-locked striped bass. The old IGFA record for land-locked stripers is a 67-pound, 8-ounce fish caught in 1992 in Los Banos, Calif. The FWC is holding meetings concerning tarpon and bonefish. At present it is illegal to take bonefish except during tournaments and then they can be kept alive in livewells only until they can be weighed. A new ruling would put a stop to this practice and the fish must not be possessed for any reason. Concerning tarpon, the current rule states you can kill one if you possess a $50 kill tag. If new rules are put in place, the only way you could possess and kill a tarpon is with a kill tag, and the fisherman must be trying to break an existing world record. Neither tarpon nor bonefish are edible. Bonefish are bony and almost impossible to eat. Four Florida counties opened April 1 to gag grouper recreational harvest: Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor. They are open to recreational harvest. This regional season will remain open until June 30 with the first day of closure being July 1. If you plan to fish this special season remember you must leave from one of those counties and return to one of them. You cannot leave say, from Bay County and fish the waters off these counties and return to Bay County. Do not leave from one of these four counties and return to some other county other than one of the four mentioned. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Special to The News Herald Anglers and divers have 19 new reefs to visit thanks to the efforts of the Mexico Beach Arti cial Reef Association (MBARA), Mexico Beach, and support from numerous organizations and members. On Saturday, 62 reef modules worth more than $91,000, found new resting places off the shores of Mexico Beach. Mexico Beach received a $60,000 grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Fund and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The rest came from donations, membership, fund raising and three shing tournaments the annual MBARA King sh Tournament, the Mexico Beach Marina Offshore Classic and the 98 Real Estate Group Ling Ding. Reef modules of varying design, each weighing more than 5,000 pounds, were placed in 19 locations, with one to eight structures submerged at each site. The reef modules, all made with steel reinforced concrete and limestone rock, include pyramids, rectangular grouper modules, layer-cake shaped ecosystems and a new hybrid reef that consists of a grouper module topped by a small ecosystem. This is the rst time the hybrid reefs have been deployed in Florida, and MBARA research divers are anxious to nd out what type of marine life will be attracted to them. According to MBARA research diver Carol Cox, Different structures attract different sh. Amberjack and red snappers are attracted to taller structures such as the pyramids, the grouper units act as low limestone ledges that are preferred by groupers, and ecosystems are a magnet for black sea bass. We nd that placing different types of structures together has a dynamic effect, greatly increasing diversity on the reef. We hope the hybrid reef with its height, ledge and crevices will attract the greatest diversity we have seen on any single arti cial reef. During this deployment, MBARA added reefs to six existing sites that have become dif cult to nd over the years. MBARA president, Bob Cox, said, It is important to maintain these reefs in honor of the people they were named after. Older reefs often were made with lighter or smaller materials that could be moved by powerful storms or covered by sand. The deployment was overseen by Bill Horn of the FWC along with MBARA volunteers Bob and Carol Cox, Ron Childs, Jimmy Nicholson, and Captain Charlene Burke. MBARA volunteers were involved in every step of the arti cial reef deployment--applying for permits, writing grants, and raising matching funds to earn points when competing for grants. According to Horn, Excellent planning by MBARA and excellent execution by Walter Marine made the project a great success. To get coordinates for the new reefs, visit MBARAs website at www.mbara. org.

FWC to meet this week near Tallahassee Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will meet Wednesday and Thursday to discuss an array of issues, ranging from marine sheries and upland wildlife management and harvest issues to boating safety, staff reports and enhancing the publics ability to help control the invasive lion sh. Sessions start both days at 8:30 a.m. at the Florida Public Safety Institute, 85 Academy Drive, Havana, FL 32333 ( www. oridapsi.com ). The Institute is west of Midway on U.S. 90. The meeting is open to the public, and all interested individuals may speak within guidelines established by the Commission. Marine issues dominate the rst day, after a representative of the Wildlife Foundation of Florida presents the annual Louise Ireland Humphrey Employee of the Year Award to FWC Assistant Executive Director Greg Holder. When the Commission takes up marine sheries issues Wednesday, it will start with a nal public hearing on the Gulf of Mexico recreational red snapper season. The proposed season would be open June 1 through July 14. The commissioners will discuss a draft rule that proposes format standardization and reorganization for several marine sheries rules in Florida Administrative Code 68B, as well as the creation of a new General chapter that will include a series of de nitions and general regulations that would be applied to all saltwater shing. In a draft rule hearing, the commissioners will discuss a proposal to eliminate the requirement for a recreational shing license when targeting lion sh with certain gear and to have no recreational or commercial harvest limit. Additionally, the Commission will consider a proposal to make tarpon and bone sh catch-andrelease-only species, and review and discuss gear use for tarpon in Boca Grande Pass. At the request of the Collier County Board of Commissioners, the commission also will discuss in a draft rule hearing the repeal of two Special Acts of Local Application that prohibit spearing or gigging with arti cial light and spearing in state waters off the county shoreline. The commission will end the marine sheries section with a staff update on South Atlantic Fishery Management Council actions and discussions. On Thursday, Commissioners will welcome a representative of the Shikar-Safari Club International to present the Of cer of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Surrounded by friends, family, teachers and teammates Holmes County High School senior Mikayla Moore signed a two-year basketball scholarship with the Northwest Florida State Raiders on April 3 in the Holmes County High Schools library. What makes this team so special was some of the qualities that Im looking for in all my student athletes, said Head Coach of the NWFS Raiders Patrick Harrington. We went out on a bus trip and it was a lot of time spent together, 10 days in fact before we came back. We didnt have one sulky attitude, not one sourpuss, no problems and no bad times and they conducted themselves in a manner that was so positive that I was more proud of what they did off the court then they did on the court and they did pretty darn good on the court. Harrington said a lot of them have moved on to higher ranked schools. These are kids who quali ed academically and just generally overlooked and then when they came and played in our program and they got the attention they deserved and I really feel that Northwest Florida State is a stepping stone for you to go and follow your dreams as a student athlete, said Harrington. Last summer Mikayla came to my camp, my little league camp, and I was thinking that I would like to see someone come through our program on full scholarship and I know shes a very good student, shes very passionate about the game and shes had tremendous success here. What I would like to see her do is have a great experience with us at Northwest Florida State and be able to transition to where she wants to go, if its after one year or if its after two years. Holmes County High School Head Coach Devon Miles said that he was very proud of the progress shes made, having coached her since the seventh grade. Ive seen a trend of players coming back in town after six months of college and I dont want to see you back in town after only six months, said Miles. You better work hard and you better make every single one here proud. I appreciate everything you did in middle school and in high school. Everyone heres going to miss you. Mikayla said she is going to major in Elementary Education.

Dean signs with Pirates SIGN UP CEREMONY The News Herald BONIFAY Chris Walker looked like he was right at home in a recent pair of national all-star basketball games. Competing against the nations top recruits in the McDonalds All-American Game on April 3 and the Jordan Brand Classic this past Saturday, Walker validated his status as one of the countrys premier prospects. Walker, a high school senior who led Holmes County to a Class 1A state championship this year, is headed to the University of Florida on a basketball scholarship next season. Walker is a 6-foot10 forward whose explosiveness was on display in the Powerade JamFest two days prior to the McDonalds game at the Ratner Center in Chicago. On his rst attempt, Walker lobbed the ball toward the basket from beyond the 3-point line, caught the ball off a bounce with both hands and threw down a lefthanded windmill jam. He hammered down a tomahawk dunk on his second effort following another lob from the three-point line, garnering a perfect score of 60 from the judges. He added another windmill jam off a 360-degree midair rotation on his third attempt before capping his night with a dunk in which he threw the ball between his legs off the backboard before throwing down the dunk with both hands. Walker was crowned champion over a whoswho of prospects, including Jabari Parker (Duke), Andrew Wiggins (undecided) and Aaron Gordon (Arizona). ESPN currently ranks those three players Nos. 1, 2 and 4 in the country, respectively, and Walker is 14th. Walker played 12 minutes in the McDonalds All-American Game, which was held at the United Center in Chicago and televised nationally on ESPN. He compiled six points on 2 of 6 shooting for the East in a 110-99 defeat, and his six rebounds was one shy of the team high. Walker was one of the most ef cient players on the oor in the Jordan Brand Classic, which was contested at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and aired on ESPN2. He scored 14 points on 7 of 13 shooting from the oor, and he also shared the team lead in rebounds with seven in 15 minutes. He also added a blocked shot. Walker headlined the Class 1A All-State Basketball Team released Monday. Somewhat startling, however, was that of 15 players named to the rst three teams, more than half represented area schools. Region nalists Malone and Cottondale each had two players selected by the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches (FABC) & SourceHoops.com. Walker was joined by junior Chai Baker of Malone. Bakers brother, Ty, was chosen to the second team along with senior Marquis White of Graceville and senior Jerodd Blount of Cottondale. The third team included senior D.J. Roulhac of Cottondale, senior Raheem Wright of Wewahitchka and freshman Trent Forrest of Chipley. No honorable mention list was included. First team Chris Walker, 6-10 sr., Holmes County Brandon Shingles, 6-1 sr., West Gadsden Ed Porter, 6-6 so., Hawthorne Chai Baker, 6-2 jr., Malone Shaimea Maeweather, 5-10 sr., Lake Butler Union County Second team Leamon Wilson, 6-0 sr., Hawthorne Neino Robinson, 6-0 sr, Bratt Northview Ty Baker, 6-6 sr,, Malone Marquis White, 6-0 sr., Graceville Jerodd Blount, 6-2 sr., Cottondale Third team D.J.

The teams faced off with a stalemate that lasted on into the 4th inning and thats when things really started heating up. Chipley Tigers Braylee Pooser, and Kacie Crews had consecutive runs to home base with Sarah Gilbert quickly following suite. Holmes County Blue Devil Shelby Clark, retaliated with a run to home plate, however this would be the Blue Devils rst and only score as the Chipley Tigers wrapped up the 7th inning with a run to home plate from Gilbert, and Sara Kay Compton, to wrap up the game with a score of 5-1. Our seniors really stepped up and played like they meant it, said Chipley Tigers Head Coach Kami Fannin. Im really excited and hope we can hit and we can play like we did last night. Weve just got to take it one game at a time. The Tigers were to face Northview Tuesday night in second round action.

BRADY CALHOUN 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Katie Wright was always going to be a missionary, her mother and father, Teresa and Jimmy Wright said Thursday. When asked how they knew, Teresa gave Jimmy a knowing look and laughed. Instinct, she said. She was always caring about others. She was always helping others. On Thursday, Katie Wright, 25, a local nurse who graduated from FSU and Haney, was in DraganestiOlt, Romania, working with a local church and teaching English to a woman and her 4-year-old daughter. She has been working with churches to help orphans, to start other churches, to minister to women and children trapped in human traf cking and to preach the Gospel of Jesus. She said she has done everything from medicine to construction so far during the trip. Her journey is sponsored by The World Race, an organization that sends out groups to 11 countries in 11 months to serve the least of these while amongst real and raw community. Her adventure began in January and will end in November. I wanted to see what God is up to around the world and how I could be a part of it, she wrote in a text message. I want to hold the orphan and the poor and the unloved of society and tell them about Jesus and that someone does love them. She has already worked in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Her group will be in South Africa, Thailand and Malaysia later this year. These arent sightseeing tours. Wrights group works in villages away from where tourists ever venture and in some places with the highest crime rates in the world. Teresa Wright said a part of her wished Katie could help people by being a nurse at a local hospital instead of in a dangerous situation far from home. It is exciting, but it is scary. I have to rely on God protecting her, Teresa Wright said. She added that her daughter has been part of several miracles, including healing for a burned child and help for a child having breathing dif culties. However, even while she is working away from home, Katie Wright and her family are raising money to fund the second half of the trip. She needs to raise $4,000 by July 1. Those interested in nding out more about her experiences can follow her blog at katiewright.theworldrace.org. Donations can be made at the website. Nurse helps orphans around the world Of all the joys spring offers us, one of the most troublesome things about this time of year is the increase of insects on our furry friends. Of all these creepy pests, adult eas cause the most problems for our pets. In order to become adults, eas need warm weather, between 70 and 80 degrees, and around 70 to 80 percent relative humidity. Those ideal conditions are usually what we are experience during this time of the year, which is why we generally see more eas coming out in the spring, said Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer in dermatology at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). While many people think eas are relatively harmless, except for making our pets itch, eas can cause numerous other health problems in our pets. For example, some animals may react to an allergen found in eas saliva, causing the animal to have an allergic reaction. This causes the animal to itch and ultimately scratch, which can lead to a secondary skin infection. If there is a massive amount of eas, anemia could even become a potential problem, especially with small animals that do not have large amounts of blood. Fleas also carry diseases like tapeworms and Bartonella (which causes cat scratch disease) that can infect both pets and humans. While there is no way to completely prevent eas from reaching our pets, a key factor to controlling eas is breaking their life cycle either by killing the adults and/or at least one of the juvenile stages. The ea life cycle has four phases: The adult eas lay eggs; the eggs hatch into larvae; the larvae turns into pupae, which, eventually, turn into adults, Diesel said. Targeting several phases of the ea lifecycle is best, particularly when dealing with an infestation. The easiest stage to target is the adult ea since they live on the pet. The other stages, such as eggs, larvae and pupae, are present in the environment. With regards to speci c therapy for eas and secondary problems, your pets veterinarian is a valuable resource for the best options and possible medications. Your pets veterinarian can help recommend the most appropriate product to help prevent eas based on other factors (other skin conditions, food allergies, etc.) as well as discuss the appropriate way to administer the product, Diesel said. I suggest using a ea prevention that lasts the entire month and is still effective if the pet gets wet. Using ea prevention products once every 30 days provides the best protection for your pet from ea bites and can even prevent a ea infestation from being established in your pets environment. It is important to minimize an animals exposure to eas by avoiding infested areas and pets. There are some things which can be done to minimize exposure to eas: avoid known infested areas, do not allow your pet to come into contact with wild animals or burrows, and protect areas of the house where wild animals may enter to minimize wild animals from establishing residency in the rst place, Diesel said. If eas become a problem inside the house, try vacuuming once a week. If the ea presence grows larger, there are various in-house treatments and exterminators to aid in ea removal. Focus on places where the pets spends most of their time inside the house because that will contain the most concentrated area of eas, Diesel said. Also, dont forget under beds and furniture, behind curtains, and along hallways connecting rooms when treating the house for eas. It may be best to contact a professional exterminator when there is a large ea burden present. In addition to treating animals and the inside of the home, it may also be essential to treat the outside environment around your home. This can be done by treating areas of the surrounding property that have an unusually high populace of eas. This includes shaded areas, under trees and bushes, in dog houses, under porches and decks. As with indoor control, when the burden is high, a professional exterminator may be the most help, Diesel said. The best approach to managing eas is to practice prevention continuously throughout the year by treating all pets with proper medication as well as treating the inside and outside of the home if there is a suspected infestation. It is much easier to prevent eas than to treat eas, Diesel said. About Pet Talk Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

The second annual Two-Toe Tom festival was at John W. Clark Park in Esto on Saturday, and hundreds took advantage of the beautiful spring weather to enjoy great music, delicious food and shop from dozens of vendors. The event kicked off with music by the Big & Loud Band and an introduction of the Two-Toe Tom Beauty Pageant winners. Other events included music by Ron French, Elvis impersonator Jerome Jackson, Southern Chain Gang and the Springs Band, along with a car show, a horseshoe tournament, a cake walk and numerous activities for the children, including in atables, pony rides, face painting and more. Two-Toe Tom is described as a monstrous alligator that was spotted in Sand Hammock Lake in northern Holmes County, and people reportedly found two-toed tracks in the sand. The legend rst was reported in the 1920s. In the 1980s, according to legend, an enormous alligator path or slide was discovered on Boynton Island, and on close inspection of the tracks, it was revealed that one of its feet only had two toes, causing locals to conclude that Two-Toe Tom was still alive. The legend of Two-Toe Tom is a major part of the folklore of the Esto Area of Northwest Florida, as well as of parts of South Alabama, according to the event program.

Did you ever have a day when everything went so well that you could not believe you were awake? I have dreams of times when everything goes perfect. Then, I awake to the reality of the world around me. I guess everybody dreams of at least one perfect day. Last week my dream came true... or almost. For no apparent reason I awoke from sleep feeling quite happy. I had no explanation for this giggly feeling of mine. I do not normally rouse myself from sleep with a chipper attitude. Just ask my wife. On second thought, dont. I just was in such a good mood that I broke out into song, which my wife threatened to end my life if I did not stop it immediately. I did not try to psychoanalyze myself and think that perhaps this was the beginning of senility or something. I just accepted it as a great day to be alive. One of my basic philosophies of life is, dont look a gift horse in the mouth; after all, he might have bad breath. This particular day nothing could bring me back to earth. I was all but literally dancing on the clouds and I cannot dance. But it was a good day to be alive and know it. Very nonchalantly, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage addressed me in a rather semi-informal manner. Would you run to the store and get me something? Being in such a high spirit, I sang my af rmative answer to her in spite of her glaring in my direction. I did not care. I would have jumped over the moon if she had asked at the time. Lucky for me, she did not ask. I was in such a good mood that I thought a shopping trip would be okay. Let it be known that when it comes to shopping, shopping and me go together like peanut butter and lobster tail. It was such a wonderful day and I felt so terri c I agreed to go shopping for my wife. Not that I needed a new wife, the one I have is ne, thank you. When I entered the store, I had a nagging feeling that something was wrong. Being in such a great mood that I was in, I shook it off and rebuked it rmly. In record time, I found the item my wife needed. Dancing and singing up the aisle, I went immediately to the checkout counter. When I got there, I found nobody there. On the counter was a bell and next to the bell, a sign that read, Ring bell for cashier. Being in such a great mood, I rang the bell to the tune of the song I was singing at the time. After all, happy is as happy shares, and I had my share of happiness at the time. Then I heard it. All right, growling from the back of the store, I heard ya. Ill be there when I get there. If I would have stopped there, it might not have gotten out of hand. Being in the goosy-kind of mood I was in, I had to take it one step further. I stared at the bell until I could stare no more and then I broke out into song accompanied by the cashiers bell. I wish you could have been there, it was spectacular. I heard you the rst time, the voice exploded from the back of the store. Ill get there when I get there and not a second sooner. I smiled to myself and reminded myself that nobody was going to spoil my mood of happiness today. Then I saw her stomping up the aisle towards the cashier counter where I was waiting. If looks could kill, and I am not so sure they cant, I would have died on the spot. I do not think steam was coming out her ears, but I am not absolutely sure about that. I know there was re in her eyes, which were focused in my direction like a laser beam. When she got to the counter she growled, Are you the one ringing the bell? With my nger on the bell, and nobody else in the store, it was hard to answer in the negative. In fact, it was hard for me to say anything while she was looking at me the way she was looking at me. She stared for a moment, at least it was something close to a stare that burrowed itself deep into my soul and that goosy-kind of feeling evaporated. Its customers like you, she snarled, that makes my day terrible. She then looked at the one item I had laying on the counter for her to ring up. She looked at it, and then looked up at me and then looked back at the item on the counter. Hissing like I have never heard hissing before, Is this what youre making all that racket about? Did you ever have a day when you felt like crawling into a groundhog hole and hiding until next February? On my way home from the store I thought about what David said in Psalm 23. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me... I can endure anything and anybody as long as God is with me. The Rev. James L.

This year marks the 10th year the Friends of Falling Waters, with the help of many great demonstrators, crafters and volunteers, have been able to give people a glimpse of a more carefree time. The Legends & Lore Festival is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and will have a wide variety of seldomseen sites as well as arts and crafts, music and food. The annual event features Civil War re-enactors, a blacksmith, candlemakers, basket weavers, live alligators, wood crafters, storytelling and much more. You sometimes dont know where you are going until you get there. The Legends & Lore Festival started out as a Saturday night program in the fall of the year and now we are celebrating the 10th annual Legends & Lore Festival, Park Service Specialist Scott Sweeney said. The event now takes place the third Friday and Saturday in April and has grown into one of the most signi cant cultural and historical events in the Florida Panhandle, he said.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Two environmental consultants went toe-to-toe during the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting on April 9 one rm ghting for the spot of environmental consultant overseeing the clean-up of the local land ll and the other rm ghting to remain. Belinda Pollock with CDG Engineers, the countys current environmental consultant group, was present to give an update on the land ll site. Pollock said even though the site contamination is low, it is still contaminated with petroleum and after the last site screening evaluation it ranked one point higher than what is allowed for site cleanup. We double checked to see if we could have it rescored, but weve found even if we did it wouldnt yield better results, Pollock said. For now, the site is at a standstill. Shortly afterward, Michael Tadlock, marketing director for Wes Environmental LLC, stepped up to ask for the boards consideration to make Wes Environmental the countys new environmental consultant. We are a small company that brings big results, Tadlock said. Weve got three geologists that combined bring 60 years of experience, we treat the property as we would our very own and we are a local company. We hire in Holmes County, we shop in Holmes County, we live in Holmes County, Tadlock said. We also rmly believe we can get the site rescored and continue progress so you can have a swift and complete closure to this project. Tadlock said their geologists have found a chemical in the soil that could boost their rating by a point if allowed to rescore.Consultants compete for HC job HOLMES COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERSBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Relay for Life of Holmes Countys main event brings an exciting conclusion to this years relay efforts from 6 p.m. on April 19 to 6 a.m. on April 20 at Memorial Park in Bonifay.

We now live in a world of instant gratication, but not so many years ago, you would have bartered for the necessities of life like food, shelter and a good bar of soap, Sweeney said. This spring festival at Falling Waters State Park recreates that time where neighbors helped neighbors and instead of running to the store for every little thing. We knew how to make things with our own two hands and x stuff that broke, Sweeney said. In todays world most everything has that little Made in China sticker and is quick to hit the bottom of the trash can at the rst sign of failing. One of the unique things about this event is that all of the crafts, artwork and unusual items are made locally and that little sticker earlier mentioned is not allowed in the park. This event also gives children the opportunity to experience many of the crafts and skills their grandparents relied on for day-to-day living, Sweeney said. The main focus for Friday is set aside for the fourth graders from Holmes, Jackson, Bay and Washington County to educate our area youngsters about these various crafts and skills to take them back in time to experience life from over 100 years ago, but the general public is always welcome. On Saturday, the energy level gets bumped up a notch with live music throughout the day, Civil War re-enactors, living history demonstrations, animal exhibits, local artists and crafters, great food and more, Sweeney said. Falling Waters State Park is a place lled with natural wonders and a rich cultural history. The park was established in 1962 to preserve what is considered one of Floridas most unique geological features but the park is so much more. During the ensuing ve decades, Falling Waters State Park added many amenities and to this day continues to improve. The parks improvements can be attributed to the dedicated staff that continues to strive to make this state park one of the best, Sweeney said. However, in recent years the local community has become more involved with assisting in preserving and protecting one of the Floridas Panhandle hidden treasure. This years event is in memory of Raymond Smoker. Smoker was a big part of the success of the Legends & Lore Festival. This years event is dedicated to his memory for all of his hard work and effort in the countless events he played a part in, Sweeney said. His love for the simple things in life has inspired us all. We will miss him seeing you here with us. Smoker was one of the festivals most avid supporters. He was lost to us this year while working with horses and helping others. He is a great loss to our event and the community as a whole, Sweeney said. CEc C ILIA SPEARs S | Times-AdvertiserBelinda Pollock with CDG Engineers, the countys current environmental consultant group, was present to give an update on the landll site and contended with Wes Engineering, LLC on if the site could be rescored, which will determine if CDG Engineers will remain as the countys consultant or if it will go to Wes Engineering, LLC.It would be of no cost to transfer the project to us, Tadlock said. It would be a cost-free and seamless transition. Pollock assured the board the site may be able to be rescored, but she knew it wouldnt be ranked any higher. Tadlock insisted if the board would appoint his rm as the countys consultant, then they could get that score higher. Put your money where your mouth is, Commissioner Kenneth Williams told Tadlock. If you can rescore it higher, then the position is yours. Tadlock agreed with the boards decision that if Wes Environmental could return with a rescored site evaluation, then they would be the new contracted environmental consultants for the county, a state-funded and county-appointed position. The board also approved to award Melvin Engineering with the design of Sandpath Road Phase II, a sidewalk project. Chairman Monty Merchant said there is an issue with the spotlights for the courthouses ag pole constantly being out at night. We need to put a light on it or take it down, Merchant said. The board agreed to see if the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce could see about taking it down every night and putting it up every morning. Commissioner Bill Parish was unanimously chosen to be the auctioneer at the auction of surplus county items on April 12. Merchant also asked about maintaining the landscape around the courthouse and was assured there was a landscape architect on staff to get started. It just doesnt seem to make any sense to pay for the courthouse to be beautied and then let the lawn take it over, Merchant said. A special session was held at 7:30 a.m. April 16, and the next regularly scheduled meeting of the commissioners is set for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30.

Instead, it addressed a serious issue plaguing the species in the Bay County area. The Panama City area has been branded a hot spot for illegal dolphin interaction, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in partnership with local businesses, is working to change that. The class targeted the areas wild dolphin tour operators, and provided tips for responsible practices to avoid harassment of dolphins for the roughly 30 people in attendance. Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act it is illegal to feed, touch or pursue wild dolphins, and noncompliance could result in a $5,000 ne for tour operators. FWC Maj. Bruce Cooper, who oversees law enforcement efforts in the Panhandle, said illegal dolphin interactions have been an issue in the Panama City area for the last 15 years, but incidents have escalated in the last few years due to habitual feeding of dolphins. Our priority is to protect the dolphin, but at the same time we want to protect your businesses, Cooper said. Were at a point in time right now where we need to make some changes. Cooper said the FWC has set aside $10,000 this year to plant undercover of cers on tour boats this summer to see whether or not operators are following the rules. Its become a vicious cycle, and we want to move away from that, Cooper said. Whats happening is theyre becoming more and more dependant on humans. Denis Richard, owner of the dolphin cruise company Water Planet, presented a list of dolphin dos and donts to the audience, citing ignorance, greed and complacency as the root of the problems. As we abuse this resource, were cutting the branch were sitting on, Richard said. The fact that youre here tells me that youre doing a great effort and were going in the right direction. Richard estimated there are about 25 established dolphin tour operators in Bay County, and said he has seen patrons try to feed dolphins everything from sandwiches to beer and cigarettes. The organizers of the seminar partnered with the Bay County Tourist Development Council, which will provide a spotlight on the agencys website for tour companies that complete the class. The seminar also featured presentations from biologists from Gulf World, Sea World and the FWC. FWC biologist Elsa Haubold presented data from a 2011 survey conducted in Bay County in which 55 percent of businesses said they were aware feeding dolphins was illegal, but only 40 percent said it was harmful. Haubold said many issues stem from lack of education, and commended the crowd for being proactive. To me this is phenomenal to have you all here, Haubold said. The government cant just come in and wave a heavy stick. Its going to take the community to solve all of these problems.FWC targets illegal dolphin feedingSPECIAL TO TIMES-ADVERTISERFrom Staff Reports BONIFAY Bonifay Fire-Rescue was dispatched to South Waukesha Street and Evans Avenue on Sunday for a commercial structure re, according to a news release from the Bonifay Fire Department.

On the heels of celebrating 10 years of publication, the Prattler feels a fulledged commercial coming on for the Prattle and for the Heritage of Washington County book. Many activities came to Chipley this past weekend Relay for Life, Flea Across Florida with yard sales and ea market vendors on every corner, and the concert at Spanish Play House on Saturday night, featuring Big River Bluegrass, which concluded the events. Hester and I participated in all of the above, plus attended other events during the week. Included was Ms. Lotta Davis 101st Birthday Reception held at First Presbyterian Church on April 7 and the Oral Interpretation presentation by Carol Saunders and her Chipola College Students at the Chipley Kiwanis Club noon meeting held at Pattillos on Tuesday April 9. We also treated ourselves to dinner at Baileys Restaurant on Thursday night. The 10th year celebration continues as accolades come forth for Perrys Prattle. Wade Webb told me that Ms. Lottas event that he is a regular in reading my articles and inquired as to my source of research. He seemed surprised with the answer that most of my material comes from memories and experiences of the past. Catherine Jeffries Braxton, a Cottondale business person, who we have known since Chuck Wagon days in Chipley, apologized to Hester for interrupting our dinner at Baileys. She was highly complimentary of the historic materials found in each weeks Prattle. She mentioned her maiden name of Jeffries, explaining that James Arthur Jefferies married Marie White of the Poplar Head community and Annie Jeffries married Dempsey J. Brock and all the large family of children all were given names beginning with the letter C. She did not mention owning the Heritage Book and I need to let her know all of the above in included in that publication. On Friday of the ea market event, Hester and I worked the West U.S. Highway 90 corridor as long as our energy held out. We encountered vendors, Steve and Jan Mason, set up on the grounds of St. Matthews Episcopal Church. They were accompanied by eightyear-old granddaughter, Ella, visiting from Atlanta. The Masons reported excellent sales and were almost sold out a noon time and were folding empty tables preparing to call it a day. Also at that location, we met up with kinfolk, Dana Brock and wife, Janet, with a display of nursery plants and home made specialty arts and crafts items of bird houses made from gourds, beautifully decorated and pleasing to the eye. They were joined by Penny Brock, wife of Donald Brock, who displayed her own gorgeous paintings of various scenes and subjects. Dana is the grandson and Penny if the granddaughter-in-law of Same Brock and Comilla Hall Brock, whose story was written by daughter, Trudell Brock Washington, and printed in noted Heritage Book. These family members missed buying a book before the sell outs on previous printings and both jumped at the opportunity to purchase one each which the Prattler just happened to have in his vehicle. Promises were also received from both that they would attend the June 15 Brock Reunion to be held at the Agriculture Center in Bonifay. Out second day of dropping in on more yard sales, took us to the Book Sale at the Washington County Library. We encountered Judy Corbus parents as we did the previous day. Mr. Corbus commented on his enjoyment of reading my writings. Both parents have been coming to Chipley for 25 years or more and joined in working at Watermelon Festivals just as if they were on the payroll. For the past two years, they have made Chipley their homes and can be seen actively working at the June watermelon event. Also in the library, we encountered Susan Jones Cook, the daughter of the late Vern Jones and Merle Jones. After giving a glowing report on Perrys Prattle, she told me she still remembers my compliment on her uncle, Paul Jones, who was in the eighth grade at Vernon when I arrived there. I well remember telling her that Paul, who looked like a grown man to me, gave me protection from the older boys who attempted to thump the ears of an over grown, but youthful, Perry Wells, who had just arrived at the big school from the small Brackin School. After a time-out at noon on Saturday, your writer attended the sh fry for the Senior Men of the county held at Daniels Lake. James Earl Guy heads this informal gathering and has been especially attentive to this Senior Person. He con rmed that he and wife, Naomi, will be at the 1944 Vernon High School Reunion to be held Saturday, April 20. At the sh fry I had a conversation with Ronnie Brock of the Sand Hill Brocks whose wife is Wanda Brock. He is a nephew of my 1944 classmate, Emma Lou Chesser Tew, who plans to attend the reunion, accompanied by daughters, Sharon and Nancy. I also had a promise from Ronnie that he will attend the reunion for our clan of Brocks in June. Topping off a week lled with wonderful experiences was when Ken Ruth visited Hester and me in out home. Ken and wife, Betty, were our caretakers at the Northwest Florida Music Park and Campground for many years. He carried on his craft of building clocks, many of them especially crafted for bluegrass performers who made appearances at the bluegrass festivals. Ken numbers among the list of those who have read Perrys Prattle since its beginning and made his purchase of the Heritage of Washington County book immediately upon its rst printing. The remaining books have dwindled from the 200 received in August to 37 now in the hands of the Prattler. Call me at 6381016 for your copy. They are $64.20 when picked up in Chipley or $70 when mailed. My email address if perry1000@bellsouth.net. See you all next week. Recently I watched an episode of HGTV s Flea Market Flips. One of the requirements for the teams involved is to repurpose one item that they nd at the ea market. On this particular episode, an old fashioned threeburner oil stove was chosen to repurpose. It was all metal built on 4 legs, similar to ones I can recall from childhood which might have been used in apartment. It had no oven. I can remember a cousin, a newly wed who lived near us, having one like that. Kerosene was purchased in a one gallon or 5 gallon can often from the rolling store which carried a tank on the back end of the vehicle. On the TV show they sanded the rust off, painted the metal and laid a piece of heavy glass over the burners to make a side table to be used as a bar. I Dont recall (or I stopped watching) if somebody bought it. But it started me thinking about how cooking has changed in my lifetime. When Jack and I married and moved into an apartment in Gainesville, we had a 4burner kerosene stove with an oven. Id never cooked on anything but my Mamas Home Comfort wood burning stove. It was state of the art and I remember when a travelling salesman sold it to our family. It was much larger than the other 4burner wood range which she had used. That stove turned out too many to count bakers full of corn pone and homemade biscuit not to mention the bushels of sweet potatoes it baked. I learned to bake cakes on the wood stove using white lard rendered at home for the shortening. My Grandma Wells had a beautiful green enamel wood burning range, the fanciest one I recall. It had a reservoir to hold hot water as did the Home Comfort my Mama had. Grandmas also had a warming closet above the range to keep dinner hot till the workers got home from the eld. For many years, I have used the base of Grandmas green enamel stove base as a coffee table base. Uncle Josh Wells salvaged it for me. The rst thing I tried to bake in the kerosene oven was a disaster. I had made a beautiful cherry pie with a lattice crust and it had baked to perfection. We were going to Cedar Key with Sam and Lucille Polston and eat when we returned. So I pulled the rack out to take my pie out and the rack tipped, dumping my pie on the oven door. Lucille quickly grabbed a turner and ipped it back into the pan, somewhat scrambled, but edible. When we moved to Bonifay in 1951 and had an apartment in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Terrel Creel, we cooked on an antique electric stove that must have been a prototype. It stood up on four legs. Four burners were at one end and the oven was at the other. It was the rst of the waist high ovens that became popular as built-ins and remain so today. The one at the Creel house was exciting to use as it would shoot sparks and dance about upon occasion. More than anything else, microwave ovens have revolutionized the way we cook, not that I actually cook a lot of things in the thing. Yet I nd I can hardly prepare a meal without using the microwave in some way. I recall the rst I heard of microwave cooking, Mrs. Sally Childers was our extension home economist, and we had some one come to the fair building on Highway 90 and talk about a way of cooking without heat. I dont recall the word microwave being used, but we were amazed at the speed with which things would heat up. My brother Jim and his wife Lavoughan were the rst in our family to get one. He proudly demonstrated how it would boil a cup of water in 2 minutes. I have gone from using a wood stove to a kerosene stove to an antique electric stove to a full size electric range to a built in oven and counter top stove and back to a 36-inch drop in range. I have never had a gas range except in an ef ciency apartment while on vacation. Neither have I owned a glass smooth topped range. I was afraid it might not heat my huge jelly-making pot fast enough. I still enjoy cooking, but as my energy level wanes and my memory span shortens I am thinking more and more of not having a cooking stove at all. My how cook stoves have changed over the yearsPrattler enjoys many weekend activities The clock designed and built by Ken Ruth. It was displayed at WBGC Radio Station during the years Perry Wells did Bluegrass Express on the Chipley station.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.comWednesday, April 17, 2013 APage 4SectionDear Editor, It was recently reported in the HCTA that an ambulance worth what? $200,000? was out of commission due to the wheel balancing machine being broken and there was no funding to x it. My rst thought was why not use the spare? Next was that the only wheel balancing machine available? No, Eastern Diesel who works on big trucks has one available 24/7. Knowing that most businesses and most likely governments have proceeds for processing small items without much fuss, why not get it done? Whats a wheel balance $20 to $30 at most? To potentially put the lives of the citizens of Holmes County at risk for this reason is beyond absurd. Its at out irresponsible. Whoever dropped the ball on this should be red. If Holmes County still had a county administrator this would not have happened. One is certainly needed. Im glad they nally quit hauling free dirt and rock to a few select. That was brought up Maybe 10 years ago and I got no where, even going through Tallahassee. Now I hope they can afford a wheel balancing machine.Dick BashtBonifay Letter to the EDITOR

Wild res can occur year round in Florida, said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan W. Koon. Have a current emergency plan and be proactive in your efforts to keep your home and family safe during a re emergency by taking necessary precautions. Florida experiences more than 4,600 wild res, burning nearly 110,000 acres of land in a typical year. This year, Florida has faced over 1,000 wild res on 20,430 acres. The three leading causes of wild res are arson, uncontrolled yard debris or trash res, and lightning. The National Fire Protection Associations Firewise program encourages homeowners to use prevention measures to decrease re threats around their homes, including planting re-resistant vegetation, trimming trees to a height of 15 feet near structures, clearing brush up to 30 feet around your home, and keeping roofs and gutters clear of debris, such as leaves and pine needles. Along with Firewise prevention measures, of cials urge residents to follow these guidelines set by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service (FFS): 1. Check with local city or county of cials to see if there are any burn restrictions in the area. 2. Keep res contained to an 8-foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel. Fires must be at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from homes, 50 feet from public roads and 150 feet from occupied buildings. 3. Obtain a burning authorization from the Florida Forest Service for piles larger than 8 feet in diameter. 4. Check the weather and dont burn on windy days or when humidity is below 30 percent. 5. Never leave a re unattended, and make sure it is completely out before leaving. 6. Keep a shovel and water hose handy in case the re escapes containment. 7. Report any suspicious activity to the Arson Alert Hotline at 1-800-342-5869. Special to the NewsGAINESVILLE Although April 22 is designated generally as Earth Day, it is observed by farm families every day. Floridas farmers and ranchers take care of our bountiful natural resources. Their livelihoods depend upon the good health of the land and water around them. Across the state farmers, ranchers and nursery plant growers have implemented state-of-the art irrigation systems. These systems have dramatically reduced water use on farm properties. According to eld evaluations by Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services personnel, conservation measures employed by farm families save almost 11 billion gallons of freshwater each year. The savings occur in all regions. For example, of cials at north Floridas Suwannee River Water Management District report that, in this substantially rural area, farmers and ranchers are saving more than one billion gallons annually. Innovation by farm owners has also improved water quality. This improvement is a longterm commitment, despite the nancial challenges agricultural operations face. Intensive testing of nutrient use by soils and plants has allowed farmers to apply only the minimum amount of fertilizer plants need to grow. Dairy producers have adopted containment structures that recycle water and animal waste for corn and other forage crops on the farm, preventing releases of nutrients into surrounding environments. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has determined that citrus growers in south-central Florida reduced nitrogen levels in groundwater by nearly 33 percent in three years with their advanced management efforts. The South Florida Water Management District has reported that farmers in the Everglades Agricultural Area slashed phosphorous levels by 71 percent in water owing from their properties during the 2012 reporting year. Farm operators support Floridas natural resources in other ways. They maintain greenspace and wildlife habitat. And they control invasive, nonnative species introduced through our seaports and air terminals. Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick praised farm families for their excellent management of natural resources. Our farmers and ranchers make our quality of life possible, Hoblick said. They do this every day while they grow the food, ber and renewable fuels we all need. I am proud of them and their many successes. On this years Earth Day and every day, I urge all Floridians to remember the many contributions agricultural producers provide for us, Hoblick added. They are the earths rst stewards and the keys to our future sustainability as a society.Earth Day is every day on the farmWild re Awareness

OUTDOORS Wednesday, April 17, 2013 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection The Alabama state record for striped bass has been broken by 15 pounds. James R. Bramlett of Dora, Ala., fishing near a warmwater outlet of the Gorgas Steam Plant near Parish, northwest of Birmingham, caught a 70-pound striped bass Feb. 28 eclipsing the record of 55 pounds that has stood for 54 years. The fish already has been approved as the new Alabama state record and if approved by the International Game Fish Association it will become the new world record for land-locked striped bass. The old IGFA record for land-locked stripers is a 67-pound, 8-ounce fish caught in 1992 in Los Banos, Calif. The FWC is holding meetings concerning tarpon and bonefish. At present it is illegal to take bonefish except during tournaments and then they can be kept alive in livewells only until they can be weighed. A new ruling would put a stop to this practice and the fish must not be possessed for any reason. Concerning tarpon, the current rule states you can kill one if you possess a $50 kill tag. If new rules are put in place, the only way you could possess and kill a tarpon is with a kill tag, and the fisherman must be trying to break an existing world record. Neither tarpon nor bonefish are edible. Bonefish are bony and almost impossible to eat. Four Florida counties opened April 1 to gag grouper recreational harvest: Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor. They are open to recreational harvest. This regional season will remain open until June 30 with the first day of closure being July 1. If you plan to fish this special season remember you must leave from one of those counties and return to one of them. You cannot leave say, from Bay County and fish the waters off these counties and return to Bay County. Do not leave from one of these four counties and return to some other county other than one of the four mentioned.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netSpecial to The News HeraldAnglers and divers have 19 new reefs to visit thanks to the efforts of the Mexico Beach Arti cial Reef Association (MBARA), Mexico Beach, and support from numerous organizations and members. On Saturday, 62 reef modules worth more than $91,000, found new resting places off the shores of Mexico Beach. Mexico Beach received a $60,000 grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Fund and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The rest came from donations, membership, fund raising and three shing tournaments the annual MBARA King sh Tournament, the Mexico Beach Marina Offshore Classic and the 98 Real Estate Group Ling Ding. Reef modules of varying design, each weighing more than 5,000 pounds, were placed in 19 locations, with one to eight structures submerged at each site. The reef modules, all made with steel reinforced concrete and limestone rock, include pyramids, rectangular grouper modules, layer-cake shaped ecosystems and a new hybrid reef that consists of a grouper module topped by a small ecosystem. This is the rst time the hybrid reefs have been deployed in Florida, and MBARA research divers are anxious to nd out what type of marine life will be attracted to them. According to MBARA research diver Carol Cox, Different structures attract different sh. Amberjack and red snappers are attracted to taller structures such as the pyramids, the grouper units act as low limestone ledges that are preferred by groupers, and ecosystems are a magnet for black sea bass. We nd that placing different types of structures together has a dynamic effect, greatly increasing diversity on the reef. We hope the hybrid reef with its height, ledge and crevices will attract the greatest diversity we have seen on any single arti cial reef. During this deployment, MBARA added reefs to six existing sites that have become dif cult to nd over the years. MBARA president, Bob Cox, said, It is important to maintain these reefs in honor of the people they were named after. Older reefs often were made with lighter or smaller materials that could be moved by powerful storms or covered by sand. The deployment was overseen by Bill Horn of the FWC along with MBARA volunteers Bob and Carol Cox, Ron Childs, Jimmy Nicholson, and Captain Charlene Burke. MBARA volunteers were involved in every step of the arti cial reef deployment--applying for permits, writing grants, and raising matching funds to earn points when competing for grants. According to Horn, Excellent planning by MBARA and excellent execution by Walter Marine made the project a great success.

Sessions start both days at 8:30 a.m. at the Florida Public Safety Institute, 85 Academy Drive, Havana, FL 32333 ( www. oridapsi.com ). The Institute is west of Midway on U.S. 90. The meeting is open to the public, and all interested individuals may speak within guidelines established by the Commission. Marine issues dominate the rst day, after a representative of the Wildlife Foundation of Florida presents the annual Louise Ireland Humphrey Employee of the Year Award to FWC Assistant Executive Director Greg Holder. When the Commission takes up marine sheries issues Wednesday, it will start with a nal public hearing on the Gulf of Mexico recreational red snapper season. The proposed season would be open June 1 through July 14. The commissioners will discuss a draft rule that proposes format standardization and reorganization for several marine sheries rules in Florida Administrative Code 68B, as well as the creation of a new General chapter that will include a series of de nitions and general regulations that would be applied to all saltwater shing. In a draft rule hearing, the commissioners will discuss a proposal to eliminate the requirement for a recreational shing license when targeting lion sh with certain gear and to have no recreational or commercial harvest limit. Additionally, the Commission will consider a proposal to make tarpon and bone sh catch-andrelease-only species, and review and discuss gear use for tarpon in Boca Grande Pass. At the request of the Collier County Board of Commissioners, the commission also will discuss in a draft rule hearing the repeal of two Special Acts of Local Application that prohibit spearing or gigging with arti cial light and spearing in state waters off the county shoreline. The commission will end the marine sheries section with a staff update on South Atlantic Fishery Management Council actions and discussions. On Thursday, Commissioners will welcome a representative of the Shikar-Safari Club International to present the Of cer of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

What makes this team so special was some of the qualities that Im looking for in all my student athletes, said Head Coach of the NWFS Raiders Patrick Harrington. We went out on a bus trip and it was a lot of time spent together, 10 days in fact before we came back. We didnt have one sulky attitude, not one sourpuss, no problems and no bad times and they conducted themselves in a manner that was so positive that I was more proud of what they did off the court then they did on the court and they did pretty darn good on the court. Harrington said a lot of them have moved on to higher ranked schools. These are kids who quali ed academically and just generally overlooked and then when they came and played in our program and they got the attention they deserved and I really feel that Northwest Florida State is a stepping stone for you to go and follow your dreams as a student athlete, said Harrington. Last summer Mikayla came to my camp, my little league camp, and I was thinking that I would like to see someone come through our program on full scholarship and I know shes a very good student, shes very passionate about the game and shes had tremendous success here. What I would like to see her do is have a great experience with us at Northwest Florida State and be able to transition to where she wants to go, if its after one year or if its after two years. Holmes County High School Head Coach Devon Miles said that he was very proud of the progress shes made, having coached her since the seventh grade. Ive seen a trend of players coming back in town after six months of college and I dont want to see you back in town after only six months, said Miles. You better work hard and you better make every single one here proud. I appreciate everything you did in middle school and in high school. Everyone heres going to miss you.

Competing against the nations top recruits in the McDonalds All-American Game on April 3 and the Jordan Brand Classic this past Saturday, Walker validated his status as one of the countrys premier prospects. Walker, a high school senior who led Holmes County to a Class 1A state championship this year, is headed to the University of Florida on a basketball scholarship next season. Walker is a 6-foot10 forward whose explosiveness was on display in the Powerade JamFest two days prior to the McDonalds game at the Ratner Center in Chicago. On his rst attempt, Walker lobbed the ball toward the basket from beyond the 3-point line, caught the ball off a bounce with both hands and threw down a lefthanded windmill jam. He hammered down a tomahawk dunk on his second effort following another lob from the three-point line, garnering a perfect score of 60 from the judges. He added another windmill jam off a 360-degree midair rotation on his third attempt before capping his night with a dunk in which he threw the ball between his legs off the backboard before throwing down the dunk with both hands. Walker was crowned champion over a whoswho of prospects, including Jabari Parker (Duke), Andrew Wiggins (undecided) and Aaron Gordon (Arizona). ESPN currently ranks those three players Nos. 1, 2 and 4 in the country, respectively, and Walker is 14th. Walker played 12 minutes in the McDonalds All-American Game, which was held at the United Center in Chicago and televised nationally on ESPN. He compiled six points on 2 of 6 shooting for the East in a 110-99 defeat, and his six rebounds was one shy of the team high. Walker was one of the most ef cient players on the oor in the Jordan Brand Classic, which was contested at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and aired on ESPN2. He scored 14 points on 7 of 13 shooting from the oor, and he also shared the team lead in rebounds with seven in 15 minutes. He also added a blocked shot. Walker headlined the Class 1A All-State Basketball Team released Monday. Somewhat startling, however, was that of 15 players named to the rst three teams, more than half represented area schools. Region nalists Malone and Cottondale each had two players selected by the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches (FABC) & SourceHoops.com. Walker was joined by junior Chai Baker of Malone. Bakers brother, Ty, was chosen to the second team along with senior Marquis White of Graceville and senior Jerodd Blount of Cottondale. The third team included senior D.J. Roulhac of Cottondale, senior Raheem Wright of Wewahitchka and freshman Trent Forrest of Chipley. No honorable mention list was included.

The teams faced off with a stalemate that lasted on into the 4th inning and thats when things really started heating up. Chipley Tigers Braylee Pooser, and Kacie Crews had consecutive runs to home base with Sarah Gilbert quickly following suite. Holmes County Blue Devil Shelby Clark, retaliated with a run to home plate, however this would be the Blue Devils rst and only score as the Chipley Tigers wrapped up the 7th inning with a run to home plate from Gilbert, and Sara Kay Compton, to wrap up the game with a score of 5-1. Our seniors really stepped up and played like they meant it, said Chipley Tigers Head Coach Kami Fannin. Im really excited and hope we can hit and we can play like we did last night. Weve just got to take it one game at a time. The Tigers were to face Northview Tuesday night in second round action.

BRADY CALHOUN747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Katie Wright was always going to be a missionary, her mother and father, Teresa and Jimmy Wright said Thursday. When asked how they knew, Teresa gave Jimmy a knowing look and laughed. Instinct, she said. She was always caring about others. She was always helping others. On Thursday, Katie Wright, 25, a local nurse who graduated from FSU and Haney, was in DraganestiOlt, Romania, working with a local church and teaching English to a woman and her 4-year-old daughter. She has been working with churches to help orphans, to start other churches, to minister to women and children trapped in human traf cking and to preach the Gospel of Jesus. She said she has done everything from medicine to construction so far during the trip. Her journey is sponsored by The World Race, an organization that sends out groups to 11 countries in 11 months to serve the least of these while amongst real and raw community. Her adventure began in January and will end in November. I wanted to see what God is up to around the world and how I could be a part of it, she wrote in a text message. I want to hold the orphan and the poor and the unloved of society and tell them about Jesus and that someone does love them. She has already worked in Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Her group will be in South Africa, Thailand and Malaysia later this year. These arent sightseeing tours. Wrights group works in villages away from where tourists ever venture and in some places with the highest crime rates in the world. Teresa Wright said a part of her wished Katie could help people by being a nurse at a local hospital instead of in a dangerous situation far from home. It is exciting, but it is scary. I have to rely on God protecting her, Teresa Wright said. She added that her daughter has been part of several miracles, including healing for a burned child and help for a child having breathing dif culties. However, even while she is working away from home, Katie Wright and her family are raising money to fund the second half of the trip. She needs to raise $4,000 by July 1. Those interested in nding out more about her experiences can follow her blog at katiewright.theworldrace.org. Donations can be made at the website. Nurse helps orphans around the worldOf all the joys spring offers us, one of the most troublesome things about this time of year is the increase of insects on our furry friends. Of all these creepy pests, adult eas cause the most problems for our pets. In order to become adults, eas need warm weather, between 70 and 80 degrees, and around 70 to 80 percent relative humidity. Those ideal conditions are usually what we are experience during this time of the year, which is why we generally see more eas coming out in the spring, said Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer in dermatology at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). While many people think eas are relatively harmless, except for making our pets itch, eas can cause numerous other health problems in our pets. For example, some animals may react to an allergen found in eas saliva, causing the animal to have an allergic reaction. This causes the animal to itch and ultimately scratch, which can lead to a secondary skin infection. If there is a massive amount of eas, anemia could even become a potential problem, especially with small animals that do not have large amounts of blood. Fleas also carry diseases like tapeworms and Bartonella (which causes cat scratch disease) that can infect both pets and humans. While there is no way to completely prevent eas from reaching our pets, a key factor to controlling eas is breaking their life cycle either by killing the adults and/or at least one of the juvenile stages. The ea life cycle has four phases: The adult eas lay eggs; the eggs hatch into larvae; the larvae turns into pupae, which, eventually, turn into adults, Diesel said. Targeting several phases of the ea lifecycle is best, particularly when dealing with an infestation. The easiest stage to target is the adult ea since they live on the pet. The other stages, such as eggs, larvae and pupae, are present in the environment. With regards to speci c therapy for eas and secondary problems, your pets veterinarian is a valuable resource for the best options and possible medications. Your pets veterinarian can help recommend the most appropriate product to help prevent eas based on other factors (other skin conditions, food allergies, etc.) as well as discuss the appropriate way to administer the product, Diesel said. I suggest using a ea prevention that lasts the entire month and is still effective if the pet gets wet. Using ea prevention products once every 30 days provides the best protection for your pet from ea bites and can even prevent a ea infestation from being established in your pets environment. It is important to minimize an animals exposure to eas by avoiding infested areas and pets. There are some things which can be done to minimize exposure to eas: avoid known infested areas, do not allow your pet to come into contact with wild animals or burrows, and protect areas of the house where wild animals may enter to minimize wild animals from establishing residency in the rst place, Diesel said. If eas become a problem inside the house, try vacuuming once a week. If the ea presence grows larger, there are various in-house treatments and exterminators to aid in ea removal. Focus on places where the pets spends most of their time inside the house because that will contain the most concentrated area of eas, Diesel said. Also, dont forget under beds and furniture, behind curtains, and along hallways connecting rooms when treating the house for eas. It may be best to contact a professional exterminator when there is a large ea burden present. In addition to treating animals and the inside of the home, it may also be essential to treat the outside environment around your home. This can be done by treating areas of the surrounding property that have an unusually high populace of eas. This includes shaded areas, under trees and bushes, in dog houses, under porches and decks. As with indoor control, when the burden is high, a professional exterminator may be the most help, Diesel said. The best approach to managing eas is to practice prevention continuously throughout the year by treating all pets with proper medication as well as treating the inside and outside of the home if there is a suspected infestation. It is much easier to prevent eas than to treat eas, Diesel said.About Pet TalkPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

The second annual Two-Toe Tom festival was at John W. Clark Park in Esto on Saturday, and hundreds took advantage of the beautiful spring weather to enjoy great music, delicious food and shop from dozens of vendors. The event kicked off with music by the Big & Loud Band and an introduction of the Two-Toe Tom Beauty Pageant winners. Other events included music by Ron French, Elvis impersonator Jerome Jackson, Southern Chain Gang and the Springs Band, along with a car show, a horseshoe tournament, a cake walk and numerous activities for the children, including in atables, pony rides, face painting and more. Two-Toe Tom is described as a monstrous alligator that was spotted in Sand Hammock Lake in northern Holmes County, and people reportedly found two-toed tracks in the sand. The legend rst was reported in the 1920s. In the 1980s, according to legend, an enormous alligator path or slide was discovered on Boynton Island, and on close inspection of the tracks, it was revealed that one of its feet only had two toes, causing locals to conclude that Two-Toe Tom was still alive. The legend of Two-Toe Tom is a major part of the folklore of the Esto Area of Northwest Florida, as well as of parts of South Alabama, according to the event program.

Did you ever have a day when everything went so well that you could not believe you were awake? I have dreams of times when everything goes perfect. Then, I awake to the reality of the world around me. I guess everybody dreams of at least one perfect day. Last week my dream came true... or almost. For no apparent reason I awoke from sleep feeling quite happy. I had no explanation for this giggly feeling of mine. I do not normally rouse myself from sleep with a chipper attitude. Just ask my wife. On second thought, dont. I just was in such a good mood that I broke out into song, which my wife threatened to end my life if I did not stop it immediately. I did not try to psychoanalyze myself and think that perhaps this was the beginning of senility or something. I just accepted it as a great day to be alive. One of my basic philosophies of life is, dont look a gift horse in the mouth; after all, he might have bad breath. This particular day nothing could bring me back to earth. I was all but literally dancing on the clouds and I cannot dance. But it was a good day to be alive and know it. Very nonchalantly, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage addressed me in a rather semi-informal manner. Would you run to the store and get me something? Being in such a high spirit, I sang my af rmative answer to her in spite of her glaring in my direction. I did not care. I would have jumped over the moon if she had asked at the time. Lucky for me, she did not ask. I was in such a good mood that I thought a shopping trip would be okay. Let it be known that when it comes to shopping, shopping and me go together like peanut butter and lobster tail. It was such a wonderful day and I felt so terri c I agreed to go shopping for my wife. Not that I needed a new wife, the one I have is ne, thank you. When I entered the store, I had a nagging feeling that something was wrong. Being in such a great mood that I was in, I shook it off and rebuked it rmly. In record time, I found the item my wife needed. Dancing and singing up the aisle, I went immediately to the checkout counter. When I got there, I found nobody there. On the counter was a bell and next to the bell, a sign that read, Ring bell for cashier. Being in such a great mood, I rang the bell to the tune of the song I was singing at the time. After all, happy is as happy shares, and I had my share of happiness at the time. Then I heard it. All right, growling from the back of the store, I heard ya. Ill be there when I get there. If I would have stopped there, it might not have gotten out of hand. Being in the goosy-kind of mood I was in, I had to take it one step further. I stared at the bell until I could stare no more and then I broke out into song accompanied by the cashiers bell. I wish you could have been there, it was spectacular. I heard you the rst time, the voice exploded from the back of the store. Ill get there when I get there and not a second sooner. I smiled to myself and reminded myself that nobody was going to spoil my mood of happiness today. Then I saw her stomping up the aisle towards the cashier counter where I was waiting. If looks could kill, and I am not so sure they cant, I would have died on the spot. I do not think steam was coming out her ears, but I am not absolutely sure about that. I know there was re in her eyes, which were focused in my direction like a laser beam. When she got to the counter she growled, Are you the one ringing the bell? With my nger on the bell, and nobody else in the store, it was hard to answer in the negative. In fact, it was hard for me to say anything while she was looking at me the way she was looking at me. She stared for a moment, at least it was something close to a stare that burrowed itself deep into my soul and that goosy-kind of feeling evaporated. Its customers like you, she snarled, that makes my day terrible. She then looked at the one item I had laying on the counter for her to ring up. She looked at it, and then looked up at me and then looked back at the item on the counter. Hissing like I have never heard hissing before, Is this what youre making all that racket about? Did you ever have a day when you felt like crawling into a groundhog hole and hiding until next February? On my way home from the store I thought about what David said in Psalm 23. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me... I can endure anything and anybody as long as God is with me. The Rev. James L.
