One meeting a month turned into a workshop would serve well to eliminate these short meetings.” Celebrate summer with Bonifay Elementary School BONIFAY — Bonifay Elementary School is inviting family and siblings of BES students to a free spaghetti supper at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 30.

Special to The Times-Advertiser BONIFAY — Twenty Holmes County students impressed an audience of more than 100 guests May 23 at the Holmes County 4-H/Tropicana Public Speaking Contest as they competed to be the county winner in their grade levels. These 20 students were the top nalists in fourth, fth and sixth grades, from 471 students who participated from ve schools in Holmes County. Not a student in the group appeared nervous about taking the stage to present their original speeches before the panel of judges, who were instructed to score them on speech content, creativity, poise and projection. Each youth took the stage with con dence, smiles and excitement. The judges were extremely impressed by the presentation skills of every student, noting that the hard work on the students and the teachers’ part was evident by the success of the evening.

First-place students each received a $220 scholarship Health director discusses mosquito risks By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY —Holmes County Health Department Director Rick Davis told Bonifay Kiwanis Club members about mosquitoes, mosquitoborne illnesses and the role the health department plays in education. “As you all know, Florida has a climate that is conducive to mosquitoes,” Davis said at the •May 21 Kiwanis meeting. “They thrive in the warm, moist climate. There are more than 3,000 different species of mosquito and can be found almost any where in the world, including as far as Antarctica.” Davis said only female mosquitoes bite, and they do not need blood to survive. “Mosquitoes actually eat mostly nectar,” he Board eyes regular workshops TIPS ON MOSQUITO REPELLENT USE • Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. • Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are generally recommended. Other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. • Apply repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. • For children, be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under 3. DEET is not recommended on children younger than 2 months. • Avoid applying repellents to children’s hands. Adults should apply repellent rst to their own hands and then transfer it to the child’s skin and clothing. • If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturer’s directions.

The big question they face now is where do they go from here?” Stafford handed out hurricane pro jections and designations for ESF. “Upon activation of the Holmes County Emergency Operations Center, the primary agency for the emergency support functions will send representa tives to the Holmes County Emergency Operations Center to coordinate activi ties,” Stafford said. “The primary agen cy determines which support agencies are required at the Holmes County Emergency Operations Center. “The primary agency for the emer gency support functions will be re sponsible for collecting all information related to the disaster.” The Holmes County Road Depart ment is responsible for transportation and public works; the sheriff’s ofce is responsible for communications, search and rescue, and law enforce ment; the Holmes County Volunteer Fire Fighters Association is respon sible for reghting and hazardous materials; the Holmes County Emer gency Management is responsible for information and planning, energy, military support and public informa tion; the American Red Cross Central Panhandle Chapter is responsible for mass care, food and water, and vol unteers and donations; the Holmes County Clerk of Court is responsible for resource support; and the Holmes County Extension Service is responsi ble for animal and agricultural issues. “These are all the primary or lead organizations; however, we all help each other tremendously,” Stafford said. “This is why we all get together like this, so that everyone knows what to do in an emergency situation. This year has the highest potential for strong hurricane activity we’ve ever seen, and even though high numbers have been projected and … hardly any activity shown, we still need to be pre pared just in case.” The following were reported May 13-17 in Holmes County.M aA RR iaIA GES Robert Hawen McRae, Nov. 23, 1988, of Ponce de Leon and Brittany Nicole Shedore, June 25, 1991, of Ponce de Leon Brandon Michael Pettis, Nov. 24, 1992, of Bonifay and Andrea Jade Owens, Oct. 27, 1995, of Bonifay James David Windham, Aug. 5, 1983, of Hartford, Ala., and DeAnna Marie Collins, Oct. 12, 1987, of Hartford, Ala.

O PINION www.bonifaynow.com A Page 4 Section Changing eating habits can help environment Dear editor, A review of 12,000 papers on climate change in the May 15 issue of “Environmental Research Letters” found that 97 percent of scientists attribute climate change to human activities. Although we’re unlikely to reverse climate change, we can mitigate its effects by reducing our driving, energy use and meat consumption. Yes, meat consumption. A 2006 U.N. report estimated that meat consumption accounts for 18 percent of man-made greenhouse gases. A 2009 article in the respected World Watch magazine suggested it may be closer to 50 percent. Carbon dioxide, the principal greenhouse gas, is generated by burning forests to create animal pastures and by combustion of fossil fuels to con ne, feed, transport and slaughter animals. The much more damaging methane and nitrous oxide are discharged from digestive tracts of cattle and from animal waste cesspools, respectively. Each of us has the power to reduce the devastating effects of climate change every time we eat. Our local supermarket offers a rich variety of soy-based lunch meats, hotdogs, veggie burgers and soy and nutbased dairy products, as well as an ample selection of vegetables, fruits, grains, and nuts. Product lists, easy recipes and transition tips are at www.livevegan. org. Sincerely, Harper Camden Bonifay Thanks for the food donations Dear editor, On behalf of the Chipley Post Of ce, the Care and Share Food Pantry and the Sheppard’s Gate Food Pantry, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Washington County for their generous donations of food during the past two weeks. The nal numbers are in with a total of 9,002 pounds of donated food! This amount includes what was donated to the Chipley, Vernon and Wausau Post Of ces. I am proud to call myself a member of a community that cares so much for its fellow citizens. If you would like to make additional donations, please feel free to contact me and I will make the necessary arrangements. Thank you Washington County! Jennifer Lowery Chipley As a Florida landowner and forester, I appreciate that state lawmakers value the importance of the timber industry in our state. Claiming 48 percent of Florida’s land mass, generating approximately $5 billion of our gross domestic product (GDP) and $581 million in local, state and federal tax revenue, our forests are a critical contributor to the state’s economy. During Florida’s 2013 Legislative Session, Rep. Halsey Beshears and Sen. Greg Evers worked to preserve the forest industry by passing sensible legislation to help our economy and environment. House Bill 269 requires that state and local government agencies use Florida wood products when building new schools, community parks, and renovating government buildings – as long as the wood is equal in price and quality. In short, if you can nd it in Florida, you buy it in Florida. Encouraging agencies to use Florida timber for construction projects will bene t foresters, the timber and logging industries, and domestic markets. HB 269 also allows state governments and local municipalities to choose from a myriad of options when implementing a sustainable building code instead of endorsing a single sustainable rating system in Florida Statute. Agencies may determine which system best aligns with their construction needs on a project-by-project basis, ensuring a level playing eld for green building systems. Having the freedom to choose the best sustainable building code is important as more than 2.4 million acres of Florida timber is certi ed through credible, wellrespected programs like Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and American Tree Farm System (ATFS). Certi cation standards have been used for more than two decades by local foresters and landowners to protect forests from destructive practices and ensure wood products are environmentally friendly. I have worked in the eld of forestry for many years, and my family has been in the forest industry all my life. Additionally, I obtained my baccalaureate degree in forestry with a focus on forest management. As a faithful steward of our woodlands, I am well aware of the burdens caused by some “green” building systems, such as LEED, which refuse to recognize more than 99 percent Memorial Day has just passed, and it is always encouraging to see local veteran’s organizations pay due respect to this important celebration. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is the day when our nation honors all American Servicemen who gave their lives for their country. Although it began to honor those who died in the Civil War, it now includes all those who died in all the wars. Since the end of World War I, Memorial Day has also been known as Poppy Day. Ex-service men sell small, red arti cial poppies to help disabled veterans. The custom has grown to include many families who individually decorate the graves of their veteran loved ones on Memorial Day with owers and miniature United States Flags. Longtime reader James Vernon Lewis, a Chipley native now residing in Virginia, sent a packet of information to the Prattler a year ago regarding the history and custom of the Poppy, including pictures of Arlington National Cemetery adorned with the symbolic patriotic ower. The writer spent much of his life promoting bluegrass festivals on Memorial Day weekends. Many of our visitors were veterans, who brought Motor Homes, Travel Trailers and other methods of camping for the weekend in the Northwest Florida Campground. Some veterans participated in the local celebrations of Memorial Day tributes. The holiday event in our town became a tradition of long standing. The Wells family continued participating in the long-established A former student of mine, Pam Long, asked me at the beauty shop last week if I could tell her where Pepper Town got its name. Some of us old timers still use that name to refer to North Bonifay, where Highway 173 north and Highway 177 west intersect Highway 79 north. I am not sure when that name came into use, but it was before I can remember. I have always understood that it was referred to as Pepper Town since it was a “hot” place. When prohibition was enacted because of the political pressure from rural protestants and the Anti-saloon League in 1920, the inability to buy legal whiskey brought about moonshining and bootleg whiskey sales.(It also led to more organized crime and racketeering.) I am sure, however, that moonshine was frequently made because of economic conditions in rural areas, such as Holmes and Washington counties as it was in the mountains of north Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee even before Prohibition. From what I have heard from the previous generation, Pepper Town used to be a lively place with several “juke” joints, bootleg whiskey and “ladies of the night.” My husband and the Brooks family who lived just north of Pepper Town can recall when these establishments lined the east side of Highway 79, so as they walked to school each day from their home, which is still our home, they always walked on the west side of the road. Even in the morning, there might still be revelers hanging out the doors of the saloons. In fact, when his two older sisters, Ruth and Etha Tison, reached their teen years, their dad, Ed Tison, went before the school board to request that his children be picked up by the bus because of the cat calls and inappropriate language to these girls as they walked by morning and afternoon. Can you picture your children walking the two miles to school today? My dear friend, the late Betty Jo Helms Brooks, grew up in Pepper Town. She was not allowed into the bars, but she said that she would often talk to the “ladies” as they hung around outside the doors, and they were always sweet to her. She recalled overhearing the adults’ whispers when one of them would have to go away to a clinic in Crestview, where it was known that illegal abortions were performed. No one would have dared to talk about such things in polite company. In 1933, when the 21st amendment repealed the 18th amendment which had outlawed the production, transportation and sale of alcohol, Pepper Town changed little for several years. When we moved to Bonifay in 1951, however, most of the jukes were gone. The beer joint on the northeast corner of the intersection was still in business. Mrs. Lou Brown ran it and her husband ran the wash-a-teria next door. That beer hall was later run by Mrs. Forehand. My family took the weekly wash to the Brown’s wash-a-teria. He had several stations set up with a wringer washing machine and three tubs arranged in a square. The rst tub was for pre-rinsing. Then, the white clothes were fed into the washer with hot water. As they nished and were fed into the rst rinse, another load of light coloreds was ready. This progressed until the darkest, dirtiest clothes were done. Then they were taken home and hung on the clothes line to dry. I met my friend Betty Jo Helms Brooks, whose parents lived next door, while doing my laundry and keeping track of my oldest child. He made friends with the Brooks’ son, Rusty, through the fence. Across the street, Ed Durant’s front room served as a sort of help-yourself pub. Customers just reached in the cooler, got a cool one and opened it and sat with the family and drank it. Though we were not customers, we often visited with the Durant family. Mr. Malcolm Pate Sr. had a barber shop in the building next door. Durant was married to his daughter, Virginia, and his son, Malcolm, was one of Jack Tison’s best friends. North of them was a small establishment owned by the Urquhart family. About the time we moved to town, Mr. Beall built a large brick building north of the Urquhart’s for a hardware store. That building was used for several businesses before being demolished, leaving a large vacant lot. Where the Chinese restaurant is now located was the site of the Hasty’s joint before John Manuel built a grocery store on the site. Later, Wallace Donaldson ran a service station there for Manuel for several years. The Manual home was built next door. Across the street in the two-story building was Butler’s Supermarket. Pepper Town today is a respectable part of our little town. The Quick Way and the Piggly Wiggly still provide liquid refreshment to locals and to our visitors passing through on the way to the beach. Many have their own recollections of this part of Bonifay and Holmes County.

Memorial Day Blue Grass Festivals, even after Norman and Mildred Brown purchased the park and continued the popular musical extravaganza. On May 24, 1997, the Chipley Festival paid tribute to the well known bluegrass brother’s duo, who established themselves in the music world as Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys, then celebrating 50 years since their debut on radio at a Virginia radio station in 1947. Their names are Jim and Jesse McReynolds, and they hail from the small town of Coeburn, Va. Fans of this group will recall their music really took off in popularity in the early 1950s when they were based rst in Live Oak, Fla., and later, Valdosta, Ga., and Prattville, Ala. They appeared on WTVY-TV in Dothan, sponsored by John and Gerald Gause, the brother’s team who owned a mobile home sales business in Marianna and Dothan. John and Gerald Gause subscribed to a front-page display advertising in the souvenir program prepared for the May 1997 event in Chipley. John made an appearance at the festival and gave a honoring tribute to this brother’s team, Jim and Jesse, whom he described as “honorable and trustworthy gentlemen as well as talented musicians.” Many local ofcials, including Sheriff Fred Peel, Superintendent of Schools, Jerry Tyre and Circuit Judge Allen Register, gave glowing testimonials in the program booklet, concluding that this brother’s team “have thrilled the hearts of millions with their music and songs.” One of the brothers made the statement while in Chipley that the attention and honor received here excelled the honor bestowed upon them at the recent White House appearance in the Nation’s Capitol where a National Award for musical achievement was presented. Sadness invaded the ranks of the Jim and Jesse team when Jesse’s wife, Darlene, passed away. A few years later, Jesse’s son, Keith, who played in band, succumbed to a serious illness. Later, after Jim McReynolds had been diagnosed with cancer, his wife, Arretta, died from a sudden heart attack. She was the sister of Darlene McReynolds. Cancer brought death to Jim a few months later. Jesse is carrying on the music as Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys As chairman of the Panhandle Watermelon Festival for 30 years, the bluegrass festival on Memorial Day weekend in our town was used a springboard to advertise the Watermelon Festival to be held usually just one month away. Care was taken to have the festival yers printed in time to get in the hands of our visitors on who came for this mammoth May event. Something must have worked, as the Watermelon Festival seems to have grown by leaps and bounds during those years. Tribute must be paid to its growth by others interested in seeing wholesome, family entertainment presented at the Watermelon Festival as well as the bluegrass shows. Some of these include Lamar Townsend, Dalton Carter, W.T. Miller, Jr. Jimmy Miller, Shelton Carroll and Roger Jones (a.k.a. Don Rogers of WBGC radio fame). The crowning touch of my reign as chairman of the watermelon event came with the appearance of Del McCoury Band in 2005. Attendance soared to new heights for the entertaining concert rendered by this highly acclaimed bluegrass band. The present chairman, Judge Colby Peel, who agreed to take leadership seven years ago, has taken the festival to a new level and with prospects of even better things to come. The entertainment for the June 28-29 Watermelon Festival has already been announced by Chairman Peel. Heading the Friday Night event at Pals Park will be country music legend, Joe Dife. There will be other entertainment. On Saturday in the air-conditioned auditorium at the Agriculture Center, Dailey and Vincent, one of the hottest bluegrass groups in the country, will be the featured artist. A local gospel quartet, consisting of Terry Ellis, Chris Ellis, Johnny Lane, Ronnie Davis and daughter Kim Davis Miller will also perform on this portion of the program. A recent email sent to the Prattler regarding Memorial Day included this reminder: “Thanksgiving is a day when we pause to give thanks for the ‘things’ we have. Memorial Day is a day when we pause to give thanks to the people who fought and died for those ‘things’ we have.” See you all next week. a nd B ONIF A Y 306 W est Br o ck A v enue 850-547-9289 N URS IN G & REH AB CE N TER AHC A/NC AL NA TIONAL QU ALIT Y A W ARD 2013 BR ONZE A W ARD x”¨ ” x¨ ¡ k „  u” HzH‘ s £ £ œ¡ £ ¡ | ¡ ¡ ~ ££ w w w .B onifa yRehab .c om W e als o t ak e c ar e of (850) 638-5885 V†‹ =…tƒ  [ ›t› ;t‹ t {  M ost V ehicles Up t o 5 qts syn thetic blend M ost V ehicles SURVE Y FOR P ARENTS OF STUDENTS IN EXCEPTIONAL STUDENT EDUC A TION !$ ( " !! .'& $ # ! $ # ) & !$ ") """ !$ !$ & /,& +,/$ $ 2092214 BID PR OPOSAL $ ( $ -.1(-.* $ 1+.. 00& /& -.10 ,& -.1 '+.. 00 ( & $ & 1-*-)0 ( )*,(//,*& #0 -1/0 "! $ 0 BID PR OPOSAL )*-$)*& -'** ,," +" )*-, (" )*#'** ,, $ $ " -)&)%, $ %&($++(&" )-+, FORESTS from page A4 of Florida-grown wood. Unfortunately, LEED only awards sustainable credits for wood certied by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), creating a monopolistic climate for forest certications and increasing costs for consumers. Other states should follow Florida’s lead with practical legislation that supports free-market principles in the timber and logging industries. Encouraging our public entities to choose Florida timber rst is a positive step toward practices that are already occurring in the private sector. Many Florida-based companies, including Publix, support diversity in sustainable forest certication by using SFI, ATFS and FSC certied products. In Chipley, almost 30 percent of the community depends on timber and logging for jobs. On behalf of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank our lawmakers for passing purposeful legislation to ensure Florida’s forest industries and certication programs remain competitive. As our economy continues to grow, this sector will remain vital in promoting development, restoration, and supporting hundreds of thousands of Florida jobs. Boosting competition in a growing industry will keep business and jobs in Florida – where they should be. Ted Everett is the executive director of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce. PRATTLER from page A4 Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Local said. “Females are the only ones that bite and draw blood. For some strange reason, they need the blood in order to reproduce.” Another little known fact, Davis said, is that they prefer the blood of birds and smaller animals to humans. “We have ocks of chicken that we draw blood from to nd out what’s going around in this area,” he said. “Last year, the state of Florida only had one case of Eastern equine encephalitis virus; it just so happened to be in Holmes County.” He said the EEE virus is rare to con tract because it has to be transmitted di rectly from horse or exotic bird to human, not from human to human. “It also helps that mosquitoes don’t like to travel,” Davis said. “Mosquitoes will only travel up to 1 mile from the area they were born.” He said the one illness to truly be wary of is West Nile virus because it is more commonly found in our area. “In humans, symptoms typically begin three to 14 days after being bitten and can cause serious illnesses in the elderly and those with compromised immune systems,” Davis said. “It should be taken seriously because it still has a 3 to 15 per cent mortality rate.” He said there were 69 cases of West Nile virus last year, and it was concentrat ed in the panhandle area of Florida. An odd occurrence, Davis said, was the reappearance of the dengue virus in 2010 after being absent in the United States for some time. “The virus seemed to isolate itself in southern Florida,” he said. “There was one conrmed case in Okaloosa County, though they were able to conrm later that they contracted the virus from visit ing somewhere else.” HCHD’s objective, he said, is “minimiz ing the number of human illnesses and deaths due to mosquito-borne illnesses.” “Routine spraying is up to the local government body, and there are grants available to help fund these endeavors,” Davis said. “We put out public notices when need be, which is usually after a natural disaster such as a ood or hur ricane in which the mosquitoes become a strong issue. FEMA would not get in volved until aerial spraying is required during a declared emergency.”TIPS TO stST O pP MO sS QU itIT OE sS FROM MUL tip TIP LYiI NG AND AVOiI D B itIT E sS Drain water from garbage cans, gut ters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, owerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected.

O UTDOORS Wednesday, May 29, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section ANDREW P JOHNSON | Halifax Media A dolphin surfaces Friday as tourists watch from a distance on personal watercraft in the Gulf of Mexico off Panama City Beach. By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH — The area just east of St. Andrew Pass is known as the “dolphin hole” for a reason. “They’re a beautiful creature,” Maj. Bruce Cooper said from an idling boat Friday as he watched dozens of bottlenose dolphins skim the surface of the shallow water. “Think about it; where else can you go to be around a beautiful animal like that in such a beautiful environment?” But Cooper, who oversees law enforcement for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in the region, said the species has become humanized as more visitors ock to the area to catch a glimpse of the marine mammals in their natural habitat. “If you stick your hand out, they’ll come right up to the boat,” Cooper said. “They expect when they come up to a boat they’re going to get food.” Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act it is illegal to feed, touch or pursue wild dolphins, he said. With more than 50 dolphin tour operators in Bay County, the FWC is working alongside the vendors to change the area’s label as a notorious “hot spot” for illegal dolphin feeding and interaction. While the vendors know better than to feed the dolphins and are working to improve their tour tactics, Cooper said area visitors often don’t know any better. If things don’t improve, Cooper said the area could be looking at stricter rules when it comes to swimming with dolphins in the wild. For example, it is illegal to swim within 300 feet of a right whale. The FWC held an information session for vendors last month to educate them on the rami cations of illegal dolphin interaction, and Cooper said the outcome of the class has been good so far. “I think what’s exciting is that the vendors here in Panama City recognize what they have,” Cooper said. “They have a phenomenal resource. … They’re doing everything they can to protect that tourism industry.” The FWC has set aside $10,000 this year to plant undercover of cers on tour boats this summer to see whether operators are following the rules. The agency also patrols the water in marked and unmarked boats. While noncompliance can result in a $1,500-plus ne for vendors, when it comes to visitors, Cooper said the FWC tries to focus more on education. “Don’t put your hand out and try to touch them; just be a part of the environment and look at them,” Cooper said. “It’s a beautiful sight. The dolphin is a beautiful animal, but we need to break that tendency where they come up to a boat and expect to get food.” Dive ags Another problem FWC ofcers have seen on the water recently is boaters not paying attention to dive ags. While out on the water, especially over the holiday weekend, Cooper said boaters should be on the lookout for dive ags and maintain an idle speed within 300 feet of the ag. “We can maintain and enhance the tourism industry here, but we have to do it by respecting and protecting not only the dolphin, but the people that swim and dive around them,” Cooper said. “We’re getting there. It’s going to be a long ways, but we’re getting there.” FWC advises against illegal dolphin contact Look but don’t touch Staff and Wire Reports ST. GEORGE ISLAND — For the third year, the state park on St. George Island has been ranked as one of the Top 10 Beaches in the U.S. The 2013 list by coastal expert Stephen P. Leatherman, also known as Dr. Beach, lists Julian G. Bruce State Park in Franklin County at No. 3, up one notch from the 2012 list. This is the third year the nine-mile beach park at the eastern end of St. George Island has made Dr. Beach’s list. Topping the list this year is Main Beach in East Hampton, N.Y. “The Florida Panhandle beaches are known for their powdery, super white sands,” Leatherman said in a news release Friday. “The sand here is squeaky clean. (Just rub your feet on the sand and hear it squeak.)” St. George is the only Panhandle beach that made the list, and is one of three in Florida. Josh Hodson, St. George Island state park manager, said in a news release the designation has done wonders for the park’s visitation in the past few years. “This ranking has resulted in publicity on a national scale for the state park and our area,” he said. According to Hodson, visitation to the state park has increased steadily since rst making the list in 2011. Last year, the park had 210,000 visitors, up from 185,000 in 2011. Because the St. George Island State Park is home to some threatened and endangered species, Hodson said visitors to this beach park are asked to be respectful of the wildlife, including the endangered loggerhead sea turtles, which arrive annually at this time of year to nest on the beach. “We’ve already received our rst few loggerheads, so please do not disturb any marked areas,” Hodson said. Leatherman, a professor at Florida International University in Miami, has visited beaches around the world and uses criteria like water and sand quality, as well as safety and environmental management, to compile his annual list. Once a beach reaches the pinnacle of No. 1, it is retired from future consideration, he said. St. George Island No. 3 on best beaches list FLORIDASTATEPARKS.ORG An aerial view of the eastern end of the state park on St. George Island shows how uncrowded the beach is. The park was selected as the third best beach in the nation by coastal expert Stephen P. Leatherman.

Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Department of Edu cation announced Thursday the results of the FCAT 2.0 Writing and third-grade Reading and Mathematics assessments. Overall, stu dent performance contin ued its upward climb with more rigorous expectations in preparation for the Com mon Core State Standards. Over the past two years, Florida teachers and stu dents have made incredible gains, including news that Florida jumped from 11th to 6th for the overall quality of its education system and Florida fourth-graders are among the best in the world for reading, Scott said. Todays report that student performance is improving lends further credence to why it was so important we provide teach ers throughout Florida with a pay raise. Moreover, were heartened to see writing scores improving as well as the achievement gap among students decreasing. That means that more and more Florida students are re ceiving a quality education, which provides more fami lies opportunities to pursue the American Dream, right here in the Sunshine State. Our students, parents and teachers have worked very hard this year, and Im pleased to see more stu dents achieving at higher levels, Commissioner of Education Dr. Tony Ben nett said. Our teachers do a fantastic job every day to prepare students for col lege and careers. We will celebrate our gains and use these results to continue to work every day to improve. FCAT 2.0 Writing Results of the FCAT 2.0 Writing assessment show overall, students in all grade levels tested (grades four, eight and 10) improved their scores with 58 percent of students scoring at 3.5 and higher, up from 54 percent in 2012. Fourth-grade students saw the biggest increase with a nine-point improve ment in the percentage of students scoring at 3.5 and above. Eighthand 10thgrade students increased achievement by 2 percent age points respectively. Twenty-ve school dis tricts made a 10 percent age point or greater im provement in the percent of fourth-grade students earning a 3.5 and higher on FCAT 2.0 Writing. In 2012, the State Board of Educa tion established 3.5 as the school grades standard for writing performance begin ning in 2013; the standard last year was 3.0. The table below illustrates informa tion on the current and pre vious standards. Results for FCAT 2.0 Writing are reported on a scale of 1.0 (lowest) to 6.0 (highest). Two trained scor ers independently score each student response; the score reported is the aver age of both scores. There is no passing score for FCAT 2.0 Writing. The percent age of students scoring 3.5 and above will be used for the writing component in calculating the 2013 school grades. Last year, the per centage of students scoring 3.0 and higher was used. In 2013, students had 60 minutes to respond to the writing prompt, an increase of 15 minutes. Based on rec ommendations from Florida educators, the time was in creased to allow students more time to satisfy higher scoring requirements. Scor ing includes more attention to the correct use of Eng lish conventions such as grammar and punctuation and the quality of details that support the written response. Since 2011, the Buros Center for Testing at the University of Nebraska has conducted a comprehensive review of the FCAT Writing hand-scoring process. This includes a review of the hand-scoring specications, a site visit for monitoring the scanning and prepara tion process for scoring, the training of scoring candi dates and actual hand-scor ing activities. The 2011 and 2012 reports are available at fcat.doe.org/fcatpub5.asp. The 2013 report will be avail able later this summer. Third-Grade FCAT 2.0 Reading and Mathematics Florida third-grade stu dents improved their perfor mance on FCAT 2.0 Read ing and maintained their progress in mathematics. Overall, statewide student achievement increased one percentage point in reading, up to 57 percent scoring 3 and above, while third-grade mathematics remained at 58 percent scoring at 3 and above. Third-grade students who score Level 1 on FCAT 2.0 Reading may be re tained. However, the test result is not the only factor for determining a childs promotion to fourth grade. Students may be eligible for a good cause exemption that includes successfully com pleting a summer reading camp, a portfolio of student work that demonstrates mastery of reading skills and specic exemptions for students with disabilities and student with limited English prociency. Information for parents on building their childs reading skills can be found at www.justreadorida. com/parents.asp. Governor: Florida students see improvement on FCAT scores Community EVENTS

As the day passed, the cadets got hot and sweaty, but the eighth grade orientation went exceptionally well. Many of the eighth grade students had questions like “Are the weapons real?” The answer is yes; the weapons most certainly are real. Some students asked, “Would you be able to play sports and still join the JROTC program?” Many of the cadets play sports and are on other JROTC teams as well. As the eighth grade students engaged in the cadets’ performance, cadets showed them various teams they can join in the JROTC Program, such as Color Guard/Honor Guard/Flag Detail, Drill, Raiders and Rie Team. This past year, the Chipley High School JROTC has been the only school in our region to qualify to go to state for every one of those teams. The JROTC mission is to “motivate young people to be better citizens,” and JROTC works hard to do exactly that and more. Cadets in the program put in an exceptional amount of hard work and dedication to achieve its goals and make the best of each and every year as not only a unit but as a family as well. Chipley High School JROTC looks forward to the mass of new faces it hopes will join the program in the years to come. For any questions, call the JROTC program at Chipley High School at 7260041 or 638-6100 ext. 503. SS pecial to EE xtra BONIFAY — The Holmes County High School JROTC went to the middle school May 21 to recruit the future cadets of the ROTC program. The Blue Devils displayed several uniforms for its teams and put on a demonstration to the eighth graders with its color guard, honor guard, rie team, exhibition team and raider team. The color guard demonstration was demonstrated by DJ Rock, Christian Grimes and Ashley Eberhardt. For the rie team demonstration, Michael Murphy showed the three different ring positions: standing, prone and kneeling. The raider demonstration was a contest of push-ups between raiders Eric Bolenbaugh and Becky Padgett. For the exhibition demonstration, Christian Grimes displayed a daring routine with spinning and tossing the rie around. Representing the honor guard, Hunter Paterson showed how some of the moves are executed using the saber. Bree Owens spoke to the eighth graders and told them how the program was rewarding and a great experience and how it can help achieve their goals. When a disaster suddenly strikes, it can be frightening for everyone, including your pet. The best thing you can do for you and your pet’s safety is to be prepared, develop a plan for emergencies and have it ready before the disaster strikes. Planning ahead is the key to keeping yourself and your pet safe before, during and after a disaster. “Before a disaster, it is important to ensure all your animals are identied within a system that will allow you two to be reunited if separated,” said Wesley Bissett, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). “Identication can come in a variety of ways, such as collars or microchips. Collars may be less expensive, but they are much easier to lose, whereas microchips may be more expensive but provide the advantage of being permanently within the animal. You should also try to keep a photo of you and your pet together to verify ownership.” When preparing for a disaster, it is imperative all of your pet’s vaccinations are current. “If you do not typically have your dog vaccinated for Bordetella, or kennel cough, consider doing so as storm season approaches,” Bissett said. “This is disease prevention in case your pet is checked into an animal shelter.” When packing emergency supplies for your pet remember to store at least a one-week supply of pet food to keep the pet’s GI tract from becoming upset and enough water to meet you and your pet’s needs for up to three days. If you must evacuate the area, make sure to grab your pet’s food and water bowls before leaving. “If your pet is on a prescription for a chronic illness, keep at least a two-week supply of medication as well as a copy of the pet’s medical records,” Bissett said. “It may be difcult to have prescriptions relled in an emergency situation. Also, make sure you have a kennel or crate to transport your pet in case of an evacuation.” During a disaster, it is important to follow a pre-written strategy to ensure you and your pet’s safety. This not only saves valuable time during the disaster but can also aid in remembering important details of the event afterward. “It is also important to heed all evacuation recommendations and orders,” Bissett said. “If the number of animals you will be evacuating will require multiple trips, plan ahead and leave early. “If your pet is injured during a disaster, immediately seek veterinary medical help, which in many cases is available as part of the local or state response,” Bissett said. “If help is not instantly available, perform rst aid until help arrives.” About Pet Talk Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

This, however, has not always been my modus operandi down through the years. In fact, I am not very good when it comes to practicing anything, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. As of late, though, I have been practicing caution like I was going to Carnegie Hall. I am not very good at it yet, but my goal is to come to the point of perfection in the area of caution as it touches my person, particularly my health and well-being. This may be because I have reached that age when most men go through a midlife crisis. You can always tell when a man is going through his midlife crisis. He usually wants to prove he is as good at 60-something as he was when he was 20-something. Carelessly throwing caution to the wind, he attempts to do something beyond the energy of his existing body. One sure way to tell if a man is having a midlife crisis is to notice his recent injuries. Personally, when I was 20 I was not good at anything, which has enabled me to skip my midlife crisis. I am glad to be 60 (okay, maybe I am a tad over 60) because now when I get tired I can say I am tired and sit down. At 60-something, I have absolutely nothing to prove. I am no better or worse than I was when I was 20. It is, as my wife notes, the ageless wonder of incompetency. The dif culty with growing older is that the old memory juices do not ow as swiftly as they once did. Of course, some of us never had a real gusher in that department anyway. The more memories I have, the less I am able to recall them in the innocence of their reality. Like the sherman who tells the size of the one that got away, memory seems to add or subtract according to the bene t of the person conjuring up the memory. A big problem a man in mid-life crisis has is he does not remember how good he actually was when he was 20, unless of course, his wife knew him at that time. If he could, he would not have to try to replicate it when he is 60. This is one of the unique advantages of maturing. Forgetting always leads to exaggerating. Exaggerating at 60-something leads to injuries. The only purpose of this is to impress people who really are not being impressed. As we grow older things begin to change, and some things change for the better. When I was 20, I could not admit to anybody that I was tired. I would have been the laughing stock in my community if I would admit any such phenomena. You know what they say about the unlimited energy that young people have. Now that I am in my 60s, I can blame my advancing years on just about anything. I love to do that, but at my age I dont have the energy. This has covered a multitude of sins, for which I am so grateful. Of course, it does have one drawback, when someone in their 80s invites me to go for a walk, what in the world can you say to that? This next one has to be one of my favorites. I would love to do that but I have to get home for my afternoon nap. The person will look at me, notice my maturing features and understand I desperately do need a nap or something resembling beauty sleep. I found one the other week that has proved quite bene cial. I was invited to a function during the evening, which turned out to be a rather boring affair. Once the meal was over people were milling around engaged in small talk. Nothing bores me quicker than small talk. Not knowing what to do, I pondered the situation for sometime. Then, like lightning from the heavens, I was struck with a brilliant idea. I went up to my host and said, Im sorry, but it is getting near my bedtime, and I have strict orders from my doctor to go to bed early. Youll have to excuse me. It worked like a charm. Everybody understood that a person of my age needs to go to bed early. I do not know who thought this up, probably Benjamin Franklin, but whoever it was, I owe them a steak dinner at the restaurant of their choice. It has now become part of my get-out-ofboring-situations arsenal. I was thinking about this the other day another good excuse popped into my head. Somebody invited me to come and play softball. At the time, they caught me off guard and I was trying to wiggle out of such an invitation. Then it dawned on me. I am sorry, I would like to but my health insurance does not cover that kind of activity. Whether my health insurance would cover that, I have no idea, but neither does anybody else, only my doctor knows for sure. While I was pondering this, I was reminded of a word from the Proverbs. Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain (Proverbs 25:14 KJV). Whoever boasts to others about their physical prowess is only fooling himself. The Rev. James L.

Special to The Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY Twenty Holmes County students impressed an audience of more than 100 guests May 23 at the Holmes County 4-H/Tropicana Public Speaking Contest as they competed to be the county winner in their grade levels. These 20 students were the top nalists in fourth, fth and sixth grades, from 471 students who participated from ve schools in Holmes County. Not a student in the group appeared nervous about taking the stage to present their original speeches before the panel of judges, who were instructed to score them on speech content, creativity, poise and projection. Each youth took the stage with con dence, smiles and excitement. The judges were extremely impressed by the presentation skills of every student, noting that the hard work on the students and the teachers part was evident by the success of the evening. Congratulations to all of this years county winners: Fourth grade: First place, Sadie Hudson, Bonifay Elementary School; second place, D.J. Bush, Bonifay Elementary School; third place, Dayna Snell, Poplar Springs School; honorable mention, Levi Leavins, Ponce de Leon Elementary School.

First-place students each received a $220 scholarship Health director discusses mosquito risksBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Health Department Director Rick Davis told Bonifay Kiwanis Club members about mosquitoes, mosquitoborne illnesses and the role the health department plays in education. As you all know, Florida has a climate that is conducive to mosquitoes, Davis said at the May 21 Kiwanis meeting. They thrive in the warm, moist climate. There are more than 3,000 different species of mosquito and can be found almost any where in the world, including as far as Antarctica. Davis said only female mosquitoes bite, and they do not need blood to survive. Mosquitoes actually eat mostly nectar, he Board eyes regular workshops TIPS ON MOSQUITO REPELLENT USE Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are generally recommended. Other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. For children, be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under 3. DEET is not recommended on children younger than 2 months. Avoid applying repellents to childrens hands. Adults should apply repellent rst to their own hands and then transfer it to the childs skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturers directions.

CC ECILIA Sp P EARs S | Times-AdvertiserHolmes County School Board members reviewed revisions made to school board policies during their May 21 meeting. WORKSHOPS from page A1Chairman Rusty Williams agreed most school boards have a workshop during the beginning of the month and their regular meetings at the end of the month. We can look into turning our morning meetings at the beginning of the month into workshops, and then our evening meetings can be the regular meeting, Williams said. This is a very common practice that seems to do well in other counties. Its something to look into. The board approved of the revision of school board policies, the 2012-2015 Master Contract, invoices, warrant list, payouts over $3,000, budget amendments, project application for District Evaluation Systems Monitor ing and the cooperative agreement for 2013 Summer Volunteer Pre-Kindergarten with Littlest Angels. The board also approved of an overnight/ out-of-state trip for Bethlehem High Schools FFA members to travel to Orlando and attend the FFA State Convention from June 10-14. Superintendent Eddie Dixon congratulated Holmes County High Schools baseball team for making it to the nal four on May 15. Weve got a lot of good schools, board member Sid Johnson said. Were proud of our athletics, our academics and our teachers and staff. We denitely stand out in the state of Florida. Owens said Holmes County also has strong arts programs, including drama and chorus. There has been a lot of wonderful and successful programs that have been performed throughout our county such as dramas and productions, Owens said. They are something for us all to be very proud of. Williams said it was a good end to a good year. We need to praise our faculty and staff on a wonderful year, Williams said. It takes a lot of staff to make a year as big a success as it has been this year, and we are proud of our staff.

It is unimaginable the horror those in Oklahoma are facing after such a tragedy, said Wanda Stafford, director of Holmes County Emergency Management. Weve got to think about what our roles would be if something like this would happen to us. The big question they face now is where do they go from here? Stafford handed out hurricane projections and designations for ESF. Upon activation of the Holmes County Emergency Operations Center, the primary agency for the emergency support functions will send representatives to the Holmes County Emergency Operations Center to coordinate activities, Stafford said. The primary agency determines which support agencies are required at the Holmes County Emergency Operations Center. The primary agency for the emergency support functions will be responsible for collecting all information related to the disaster. The Holmes County Road Department is responsible for transportation and public works; the sheriffs ofce is responsible for communications, search and rescue, and law enforcement; the Holmes County Volunteer Fire Fighters Association is responsible for reghting and hazardous materials; the Holmes County Emergency Management is responsible for information and planning, energy, military support and public information; the American Red Cross Central Panhandle Chapter is responsible for mass care, food and water, and volunteers and donations; the Holmes County Clerk of Court is responsible for resource support; and the Holmes County Extension Service is responsible for animal and agricultural issues. These are all the primary or lead organizations; however, we all help each other tremendously, Stafford said. This is why we all get together like this, so that everyone knows what to do in an emergency situation. This year has the highest potential for strong hurricane activity weve ever seen, and even though high numbers have been projected and hardly any activity shown, we still need to be prepared just in case.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com APage 4SectionChanging eating habits can help environmentDear editor, A review of 12,000 papers on climate change in the May 15 issue of Environmental Research Letters found that 97 percent of scientists attribute climate change to human activities. Although were unlikely to reverse climate change, we can mitigate its effects by reducing our driving, energy use and meat consumption. Yes, meat consumption. A 2006 U.N. report estimated that meat consumption accounts for 18 percent of man-made greenhouse gases. A 2009 article in the respected World Watch magazine suggested it may be closer to 50 percent. Carbon dioxide, the principal greenhouse gas, is generated by burning forests to create animal pastures and by combustion of fossil fuels to con ne, feed, transport and slaughter animals. The much more damaging methane and nitrous oxide are discharged from digestive tracts of cattle and from animal waste cesspools, respectively. Each of us has the power to reduce the devastating effects of climate change every time we eat. Our local supermarket offers a rich variety of soy-based lunch meats, hotdogs, veggie burgers and soy and nutbased dairy products, as well as an ample selection of vegetables, fruits, grains, and nuts. Product lists, easy recipes and transition tips are at www.livevegan. org. Sincerely,Harper CamdenBonifayThanks for the food donationsDear editor, On behalf of the Chipley Post Of ce, the Care and Share Food Pantry and the Sheppards Gate Food Pantry, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Washington County for their generous donations of food during the past two weeks. The nal numbers are in with a total of 9,002 pounds of donated food! This amount includes what was donated to the Chipley, Vernon and Wausau Post Of ces. I am proud to call myself a member of a community that cares so much for its fellow citizens. If you would like to make additional donations, please feel free to contact me and I will make the necessary arrangements. Thank you Washington County! Jennifer Lowery Chipley As a Florida landowner and forester, I appreciate that state lawmakers value the importance of the timber industry in our state. Claiming 48 percent of Floridas land mass, generating approximately $5 billion of our gross domestic product (GDP) and $581 million in local, state and federal tax revenue, our forests are a critical contributor to the states economy. During Floridas 2013 Legislative Session, Rep. Halsey Beshears and Sen. Greg Evers worked to preserve the forest industry by passing sensible legislation to help our economy and environment. House Bill 269 requires that state and local government agencies use Florida wood products when building new schools, community parks, and renovating government buildings as long as the wood is equal in price and quality. In short, if you can nd it in Florida, you buy it in Florida. Encouraging agencies to use Florida timber for construction projects will bene t foresters, the timber and logging industries, and domestic markets. HB 269 also allows state governments and local municipalities to choose from a myriad of options when implementing a sustainable building code instead of endorsing a single sustainable rating system in Florida Statute. Agencies may determine which system best aligns with their construction needs on a project-by-project basis, ensuring a level playing eld for green building systems. Having the freedom to choose the best sustainable building code is important as more than 2.4 million acres of Florida timber is certi ed through credible, wellrespected programs like Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and American Tree Farm System (ATFS). Certi cation standards have been used for more than two decades by local foresters and landowners to protect forests from destructive practices and ensure wood products are environmentally friendly. I have worked in the eld of forestry for many years, and my family has been in the forest industry all my life. Additionally, I obtained my baccalaureate degree in forestry with a focus on forest management. As a faithful steward of our woodlands, I am well aware of the burdens caused by some green building systems, such as LEED, which refuse to recognize more than 99 percent Memorial Day has just passed, and it is always encouraging to see local veterans organizations pay due respect to this important celebration. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is the day when our nation honors all American Servicemen who gave their lives for their country. Although it began to honor those who died in the Civil War, it now includes all those who died in all the wars. Since the end of World War I, Memorial Day has also been known as Poppy Day. Ex-service men sell small, red arti cial poppies to help disabled veterans. The custom has grown to include many families who individually decorate the graves of their veteran loved ones on Memorial Day with owers and miniature United States Flags. Longtime reader James Vernon Lewis, a Chipley native now residing in Virginia, sent a packet of information to the Prattler a year ago regarding the history and custom of the Poppy, including pictures of Arlington National Cemetery adorned with the symbolic patriotic ower. The writer spent much of his life promoting bluegrass festivals on Memorial Day weekends. Many of our visitors were veterans, who brought Motor Homes, Travel Trailers and other methods of camping for the weekend in the Northwest Florida Campground. Some veterans participated in the local celebrations of Memorial Day tributes. The holiday event in our town became a tradition of long standing. The Wells family continued participating in the long-established A former student of mine, Pam Long, asked me at the beauty shop last week if I could tell her where Pepper Town got its name. Some of us old timers still use that name to refer to North Bonifay, where Highway 173 north and Highway 177 west intersect Highway 79 north. I am not sure when that name came into use, but it was before I can remember. I have always understood that it was referred to as Pepper Town since it was a hot place. When prohibition was enacted because of the political pressure from rural protestants and the Anti-saloon League in 1920, the inability to buy legal whiskey brought about moonshining and bootleg whiskey sales.(It also led to more organized crime and racketeering.) I am sure, however, that moonshine was frequently made because of economic conditions in rural areas, such as Holmes and Washington counties as it was in the mountains of north Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee even before Prohibition. From what I have heard from the previous generation, Pepper Town used to be a lively place with several juke joints, bootleg whiskey and ladies of the night. My husband and the Brooks family who lived just north of Pepper Town can recall when these establishments lined the east side of Highway 79, so as they walked to school each day from their home, which is still our home, they always walked on the west side of the road. Even in the morning, there might still be revelers hanging out the doors of the saloons. In fact, when his two older sisters, Ruth and Etha Tison, reached their teen years, their dad, Ed Tison, went before the school board to request that his children be picked up by the bus because of the cat calls and inappropriate language to these girls as they walked by morning and afternoon. Can you picture your children walking the two miles to school today? My dear friend, the late Betty Jo Helms Brooks, grew up in Pepper Town. She was not allowed into the bars, but she said that she would often talk to the ladies as they hung around outside the doors, and they were always sweet to her. She recalled overhearing the adults whispers when one of them would have to go away to a clinic in Crestview, where it was known that illegal abortions were performed. No one would have dared to talk about such things in polite company. In 1933, when the 21st amendment repealed the 18th amendment which had outlawed the production, transportation and sale of alcohol, Pepper Town changed little for several years. When we moved to Bonifay in 1951, however, most of the jukes were gone. The beer joint on the northeast corner of the intersection was still in business. Mrs. Lou Brown ran it and her husband ran the wash-a-teria next door. That beer hall was later run by Mrs. Forehand. My family took the weekly wash to the Browns wash-a-teria. He had several stations set up with a wringer washing machine and three tubs arranged in a square. The rst tub was for pre-rinsing. Then, the white clothes were fed into the washer with hot water. As they nished and were fed into the rst rinse, another load of light coloreds was ready. This progressed until the darkest, dirtiest clothes were done. Then they were taken home and hung on the clothes line to dry. I met my friend Betty Jo Helms Brooks, whose parents lived next door, while doing my laundry and keeping track of my oldest child. He made friends with the Brooks son, Rusty, through the fence. Across the street, Ed Durants front room served as a sort of help-yourself pub. Customers just reached in the cooler, got a cool one and opened it and sat with the family and drank it. Though we were not customers, we often visited with the Durant family. Mr. Malcolm Pate Sr. had a barber shop in the building next door. Durant was married to his daughter, Virginia, and his son, Malcolm, was one of Jack Tisons best friends. North of them was a small establishment owned by the Urquhart family. About the time we moved to town, Mr. Beall built a large brick building north of the Urquharts for a hardware store. That building was used for several businesses before being demolished, leaving a large vacant lot. Where the Chinese restaurant is now located was the site of the Hastys joint before John Manuel built a grocery store on the site. Later, Wallace Donaldson ran a service station there for Manuel for several years. The Manual home was built next door. Across the street in the two-story building was Butlers Supermarket. Pepper Town today is a respectable part of our little town. The Quick Way and the Piggly Wiggly still provide liquid refreshment to locals and to our visitors passing through on the way to the beach. Many have their own recollections of this part of Bonifay and Holmes County.

Memorial Day Blue Grass Festivals, even after Norman and Mildred Brown purchased the park and continued the popular musical extravaganza. On May 24, 1997, the Chipley Festival paid tribute to the well known bluegrass brothers duo, who established themselves in the music world as Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys, then celebrating 50 years since their debut on radio at a Virginia radio station in 1947. Their names are Jim and Jesse McReynolds, and they hail from the small town of Coeburn, Va. Fans of this group will recall their music really took off in popularity in the early 1950s when they were based rst in Live Oak, Fla., and later, Valdosta, Ga., and Prattville, Ala. They appeared on WTVY-TV in Dothan, sponsored by John and Gerald Gause, the brothers team who owned a mobile home sales business in Marianna and Dothan. John and Gerald Gause subscribed to a front-page display advertising in the souvenir program prepared for the May 1997 event in Chipley. John made an appearance at the festival and gave a honoring tribute to this brothers team, Jim and Jesse, whom he described as honorable and trustworthy gentlemen as well as talented musicians. Many local ofcials, including Sheriff Fred Peel, Superintendent of Schools, Jerry Tyre and Circuit Judge Allen Register, gave glowing testimonials in the program booklet, concluding that this brothers team have thrilled the hearts of millions with their music and songs. One of the brothers made the statement while in Chipley that the attention and honor received here excelled the honor bestowed upon them at the recent White House appearance in the Nations Capitol where a National Award for musical achievement was presented. Sadness invaded the ranks of the Jim and Jesse team when Jesses wife, Darlene, passed away. A few years later, Jesses son, Keith, who played in band, succumbed to a serious illness. Later, after Jim McReynolds had been diagnosed with cancer, his wife, Arretta, died from a sudden heart attack. She was the sister of Darlene McReynolds. Cancer brought death to Jim a few months later. Jesse is carrying on the music as Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys As chairman of the Panhandle Watermelon Festival for 30 years, the bluegrass festival on Memorial Day weekend in our town was used a springboard to advertise the Watermelon Festival to be held usually just one month away. Care was taken to have the festival yers printed in time to get in the hands of our visitors on who came for this mammoth May event. Something must have worked, as the Watermelon Festival seems to have grown by leaps and bounds during those years. Tribute must be paid to its growth by others interested in seeing wholesome, family entertainment presented at the Watermelon Festival as well as the bluegrass shows. Some of these include Lamar Townsend, Dalton Carter, W.T. Miller, Jr. Jimmy Miller, Shelton Carroll and Roger Jones (a.k.a. Don Rogers of WBGC radio fame). The crowning touch of my reign as chairman of the watermelon event came with the appearance of Del McCoury Band in 2005. Attendance soared to new heights for the entertaining concert rendered by this highly acclaimed bluegrass band. The present chairman, Judge Colby Peel, who agreed to take leadership seven years ago, has taken the festival to a new level and with prospects of even better things to come. The entertainment for the June 28-29 Watermelon Festival has already been announced by Chairman Peel. Heading the Friday Night event at Pals Park will be country music legend, Joe Dife. There will be other entertainment. On Saturday in the air-conditioned auditorium at the Agriculture Center, Dailey and Vincent, one of the hottest bluegrass groups in the country, will be the featured artist. A local gospel quartet, consisting of Terry Ellis, Chris Ellis, Johnny Lane, Ronnie Davis and daughter Kim Davis Miller will also perform on this portion of the program. A recent email sent to the Prattler regarding Memorial Day included this reminder: Thanksgiving is a day when we pause to give thanks for the things we have. Memorial Day is a day when we pause to give thanks to the people who fought and died for those things we have.

Unfortunately, LEED only awards sustainable credits for wood certied by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), creating a monopolistic climate for forest certications and increasing costs for consumers. Other states should follow Floridas lead with practical legislation that supports free-market principles in the timber and logging industries. Encouraging our public entities to choose Florida timber rst is a positive step toward practices that are already occurring in the private sector. Many Florida-based companies, including Publix, support diversity in sustainable forest certication by using SFI, ATFS and FSC certied products. In Chipley, almost 30 percent of the community depends on timber and logging for jobs. On behalf of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank our lawmakers for passing purposeful legislation to ensure Floridas forest industries and certication programs remain competitive. As our economy continues to grow, this sector will remain vital in promoting development, restoration, and supporting hundreds of thousands of Florida jobs. Boosting competition in a growing industry will keep business and jobs in Florida where they should be. Ted Everett is the executive director of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce. PRATTLER from page A4Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Localsaid. Females are the only ones that bite and draw blood. For some strange reason, they need the blood in order to reproduce. Another little known fact, Davis said, is that they prefer the blood of birds and smaller animals to humans. We have ocks of chicken that we draw blood from to nd out whats going around in this area, he said. Last year, the state of Florida only had one case of Eastern equine encephalitis virus; it just so happened to be in Holmes County. He said the EEE virus is rare to contract because it has to be transmitted directly from horse or exotic bird to human, not from human to human. It also helps that mosquitoes dont like to travel, Davis said. Mosquitoes will only travel up to 1 mile from the area they were born. He said the one illness to truly be wary of is West Nile virus because it is more commonly found in our area. In humans, symptoms typically begin three to 14 days after being bitten and can cause serious illnesses in the elderly and those with compromised immune systems, Davis said. It should be taken seriously because it still has a 3 to 15 percent mortality rate. He said there were 69 cases of West Nile virus last year, and it was concentrated in the panhandle area of Florida. An odd occurrence, Davis said, was the reappearance of the dengue virus in 2010 after being absent in the United States for some time. The virus seemed to isolate itself in southern Florida, he said. There was one conrmed case in Okaloosa County, though they were able to conrm later that they contracted the virus from visiting somewhere else. HCHDs objective, he said, is minimizing the number of human illnesses and deaths due to mosquito-borne illnesses. Routine spraying is up to the local government body, and there are grants available to help fund these endeavors, Davis said. We put out public notices when need be, which is usually after a natural disaster such as a ood or hurricane in which the mosquitoes become a strong issue. FEMA would not get involved until aerial spraying is required during a declared emergency.TIPS TO stSTOpP MOsSQUitITOEsS FROM MULtip TIPLYiING AND AVOiID BitITEsSDrain water from garbage cans, gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, owerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected.

By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH The area just east of St. Andrew Pass is known as the dolphin hole for a reason. Theyre a beautiful creature, Maj. Bruce Cooper said from an idling boat Friday as he watched dozens of bottlenose dolphins skim the surface of the shallow water. Think about it; where else can you go to be around a beautiful animal like that in such a beautiful environment? But Cooper, who oversees law enforcement for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in the region, said the species has become humanized as more visitors ock to the area to catch a glimpse of the marine mammals in their natural habitat. If you stick your hand out, theyll come right up to the boat, Cooper said. They expect when they come up to a boat theyre going to get food. Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act it is illegal to feed, touch or pursue wild dolphins, he said. With more than 50 dolphin tour operators in Bay County, the FWC is working alongside the vendors to change the areas label as a notorious hot spot for illegal dolphin feeding and interaction. While the vendors know better than to feed the dolphins and are working to improve their tour tactics, Cooper said area visitors often dont know any better. If things dont improve, Cooper said the area could be looking at stricter rules when it comes to swimming with dolphins in the wild. For example, it is illegal to swim within 300 feet of a right whale. The FWC held an information session for vendors last month to educate them on the rami cations of illegal dolphin interaction, and Cooper said the outcome of the class has been good so far. I think whats exciting is that the vendors here in Panama City recognize what they have, Cooper said. They have a phenomenal resource. Theyre doing everything they can to protect that tourism industry. The FWC has set aside $10,000 this year to plant undercover of cers on tour boats this summer to see whether operators are following the rules. The agency also patrols the water in marked and unmarked boats. While noncompliance can result in a $1,500-plus ne for vendors, when it comes to visitors, Cooper said the FWC tries to focus more on education. Dont put your hand out and try to touch them; just be a part of the environment and look at them, Cooper said. Its a beautiful sight. The dolphin is a beautiful animal, but we need to break that tendency where they come up to a boat and expect to get food. Dive agsAnother problem FWC ofcers have seen on the water recently is boaters not paying attention to dive ags. While out on the water, especially over the holiday weekend, Cooper said boaters should be on the lookout for dive ags and maintain an idle speed within 300 feet of the ag. We can maintain and enhance the tourism industry here, but we have to do it by respecting and protecting not only the dolphin, but the people that swim and dive around them, Cooper said. Were getting there. Its going to be a long ways, but were getting there. FWC advises against illegal dolphin contactLook but dont touchStaff and Wire ReportsST. GEORGE ISLAND For the third year, the state park on St. George Island has been ranked as one of the Top 10 Beaches in the U.S. The 2013 list by coastal expert Stephen P. Leatherman, also known as Dr. Beach, lists Julian G. Bruce State Park in Franklin County at No. 3, up one notch from the 2012 list. This is the third year the nine-mile beach park at the eastern end of St. George Island has made Dr. Beachs list. Topping the list this year is Main Beach in East Hampton, N.Y. The Florida Panhandle beaches are known for their powdery, super white sands, Leatherman said in a news release Friday. The sand here is squeaky clean. (Just rub your feet on the sand and hear it squeak.) St. George is the only Panhandle beach that made the list, and is one of three in Florida. Josh Hodson, St. George Island state park manager, said in a news release the designation has done wonders for the parks visitation in the past few years. This ranking has resulted in publicity on a national scale for the state park and our area, he said. According to Hodson, visitation to the state park has increased steadily since rst making the list in 2011. Last year, the park had 210,000 visitors, up from 185,000 in 2011. Because the St. George Island State Park is home to some threatened and endangered species, Hodson said visitors to this beach park are asked to be respectful of the wildlife, including the endangered loggerhead sea turtles, which arrive annually at this time of year to nest on the beach. Weve already received our rst few loggerheads, so please do not disturb any marked areas, Hodson said. Leatherman, a professor at Florida International University in Miami, has visited beaches around the world and uses criteria like water and sand quality, as well as safety and environmental management, to compile his annual list. Once a beach reaches the pinnacle of No. 1, it is retired from future consideration, he said. St. George Island No. 3 on best beaches listFLORIDASTATEPARKS.ORGAn aerial view of the eastern end of the state park on St. George Island shows how uncrowded the beach is. The park was selected as the third best beach in the nation by coastal expert Stephen P. Leatherman. TOP 10 No. 1: Main Beach, East Hampton, N.Y.

Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Department of Education announced Thursday the results of the FCAT 2.0 Writing and third-grade Reading and Mathematics assessments. Overall, student performance continued its upward climb with more rigorous expectations in preparation for the Common Core State Standards. Over the past two years, Florida teachers and students have made incredible gains, including news that Florida jumped from 11th to 6th for the overall quality of its education system and Florida fourth-graders are among the best in the world for reading, Scott said. Todays report that student performance is improving lends further credence to why it was so important we provide teachers throughout Florida with a pay raise. Moreover, were heartened to see writing scores improving as well as the achievement gap among students decreasing. That means that more and more Florida students are receiving a quality education, which provides more families opportunities to pursue the American Dream, right here in the Sunshine State. Our students, parents and teachers have worked very hard this year, and Im pleased to see more students achieving at higher levels, Commissioner of Education Dr. Tony Bennett said. Our teachers do a fantastic job every day to prepare students for college and careers. We will celebrate our gains and use these results to continue to work every day to improve.FCAT 2.0 WritingResults of the FCAT 2.0 Writing assessment show overall, students in all grade levels tested (grades four, eight and 10) improved their scores with 58 percent of students scoring at 3.5 and higher, up from 54 percent in 2012. Fourth-grade students saw the biggest increase with a nine-point improvement in the percentage of students scoring at 3.5 and above. Eighthand 10thgrade students increased achievement by 2 percentage points respectively. Twenty-ve school districts made a 10 percentage point or greater improvement in the percent of fourth-grade students earning a 3.5 and higher on FCAT 2.0 Writing. In 2012, the State Board of Education established 3.5 as the school grades standard for writing performance beginning in 2013; the standard last year was 3.0. The table below illustrates information on the current and previous standards. Results for FCAT 2.0 Writing are reported on a scale of 1.0 (lowest) to 6.0 (highest). Two trained scorers independently score each student response; the score reported is the average of both scores. There is no passing score for FCAT 2.0 Writing. The percentage of students scoring 3.5 and above will be used for the writing component in calculating the 2013 school grades. Last year, the percentage of students scoring 3.0 and higher was used. In 2013, students had 60 minutes to respond to the writing prompt, an increase of 15 minutes. Based on recommendations from Florida educators, the time was increased to allow students more time to satisfy higher scoring requirements. Scoring includes more attention to the correct use of English conventions such as grammar and punctuation and the quality of details that support the written response. Since 2011, the Buros Center for Testing at the University of Nebraska has conducted a comprehensive review of the FCAT Writing hand-scoring process. This includes a review of the hand-scoring specications, a site visit for monitoring the scanning and preparation process for scoring, the training of scoring candidates and actual hand-scoring activities. The 2011 and 2012 reports are available at fcat.doe.org/fcatpub5.asp. The 2013 report will be available later this summer. Third-Grade FCAT 2.0 Reading and MathematicsFlorida third-grade students improved their performance on FCAT 2.0 Reading and maintained their progress in mathematics. Overall, statewide student achievement increased one percentage point in reading, up to 57 percent scoring 3 and above, while third-grade mathematics remained at 58 percent scoring at 3 and above. Third-grade students who score Level 1 on FCAT 2.0 Reading may be retained. However, the test result is not the only factor for determining a childs promotion to fourth grade. Students may be eligible for a good cause exemption that includes successfully completing a summer reading camp, a portfolio of student work that demonstrates mastery of reading skills and specic exemptions for students with disabilities and student with limited English prociency. Information for parents on building their childs reading skills can be found at www.justreadorida. com/parents.asp. Governor: Florida students see improvement on FCAT scores Community EventsVENTS

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 866-314-3769 By MICHELLE FUSTONSpecial to Extra The Chipley High School JROTC transitioned over to Roulhac Middle School May 21 to perform at its eighth grade orientation. As the day passed, the cadets got hot and sweaty, but the eighth grade orientation went exceptionally well. Many of the eighth grade students had questions like Are the weapons real? The answer is yes; the weapons most certainly are real. Some students asked, Would you be able to play sports and still join the JROTC program? Many of the cadets play sports and are on other JROTC teams as well. As the eighth grade students engaged in the cadets performance, cadets showed them various teams they can join in the JROTC Program, such as Color Guard/Honor Guard/Flag Detail, Drill, Raiders and Rie Team. This past year, the Chipley High School JROTC has been the only school in our region to qualify to go to state for every one of those teams. The JROTC mission is to motivate young people to be better citizens, and JROTC works hard to do exactly that and more. Cadets in the program put in an exceptional amount of hard work and dedication to achieve its goals and make the best of each and every year as not only a unit but as a family as well. Chipley High School JROTC looks forward to the mass of new faces it hopes will join the program in the years to come. For any questions, call the JROTC program at Chipley High School at 7260041 or 638-6100 ext. 503. SSpecial to EExtraBONIFAY The Holmes County High School JROTC went to the middle school May 21 to recruit the future cadets of the ROTC program. The Blue Devils displayed several uniforms for its teams and put on a demonstration to the eighth graders with its color guard, honor guard, rie team, exhibition team and raider team. The color guard demonstration was demonstrated by DJ Rock, Christian Grimes and Ashley Eberhardt. For the rie team demonstration, Michael Murphy showed the three different ring positions: standing, prone and kneeling. The raider demonstration was a contest of push-ups between raiders Eric Bolenbaugh and Becky Padgett. For the exhibition demonstration, Christian Grimes displayed a daring routine with spinning and tossing the rie around. Representing the honor guard, Hunter Paterson showed how some of the moves are executed using the saber. Bree Owens spoke to the eighth graders and told them how the program was rewarding and a great experience and how it can help achieve their goals. When a disaster suddenly strikes, it can be frightening for everyone, including your pet. The best thing you can do for you and your pets safety is to be prepared, develop a plan for emergencies and have it ready before the disaster strikes. Planning ahead is the key to keeping yourself and your pet safe before, during and after a disaster. Before a disaster, it is important to ensure all your animals are identied within a system that will allow you two to be reunited if separated, said Wesley Bissett, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Identication can come in a variety of ways, such as collars or microchips. Collars may be less expensive, but they are much easier to lose, whereas microchips may be more expensive but provide the advantage of being permanently within the animal. You should also try to keep a photo of you and your pet together to verify ownership. When preparing for a disaster, it is imperative all of your pets vaccinations are current. If you do not typically have your dog vaccinated for Bordetella, or kennel cough, consider doing so as storm season approaches, Bissett said. This is disease prevention in case your pet is checked into an animal shelter. When packing emergency supplies for your pet remember to store at least a one-week supply of pet food to keep the pets GI tract from becoming upset and enough water to meet you and your pets needs for up to three days. If you must evacuate the area, make sure to grab your pets food and water bowls before leaving. If your pet is on a prescription for a chronic illness, keep at least a two-week supply of medication as well as a copy of the pets medical records, Bissett said. It may be difcult to have prescriptions relled in an emergency situation. Also, make sure you have a kennel or crate to transport your pet in case of an evacuation. During a disaster, it is important to follow a pre-written strategy to ensure you and your pets safety. This not only saves valuable time during the disaster but can also aid in remembering important details of the event afterward. It is also important to heed all evacuation recommendations and orders, Bissett said. If the number of animals you will be evacuating will require multiple trips, plan ahead and leave early. If your pet is injured during a disaster, immediately seek veterinary medical help, which in many cases is available as part of the local or state response, Bissett said. If help is not instantly available, perform rst aid until help arrives. About Pet TalkPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

This, however, has not always been my modus operandi down through the years. In fact, I am not very good when it comes to practicing anything, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. As of late, though, I have been practicing caution like I was going to Carnegie Hall. I am not very good at it yet, but my goal is to come to the point of perfection in the area of caution as it touches my person, particularly my health and well-being. This may be because I have reached that age when most men go through a midlife crisis. You can always tell when a man is going through his midlife crisis. He usually wants to prove he is as good at 60-something as he was when he was 20-something. Carelessly throwing caution to the wind, he attempts to do something beyond the energy of his existing body. One sure way to tell if a man is having a midlife crisis is to notice his recent injuries. Personally, when I was 20 I was not good at anything, which has enabled me to skip my midlife crisis. I am glad to be 60 (okay, maybe I am a tad over 60) because now when I get tired I can say I am tired and sit down. At 60-something, I have absolutely nothing to prove. I am no better or worse than I was when I was 20. It is, as my wife notes, the ageless wonder of incompetency. The dif culty with growing older is that the old memory juices do not ow as swiftly as they once did. Of course, some of us never had a real gusher in that department anyway. The more memories I have, the less I am able to recall them in the innocence of their reality. Like the sherman who tells the size of the one that got away, memory seems to add or subtract according to the bene t of the person conjuring up the memory. A big problem a man in mid-life crisis has is he does not remember how good he actually was when he was 20, unless of course, his wife knew him at that time. If he could, he would not have to try to replicate it when he is 60. This is one of the unique advantages of maturing. Forgetting always leads to exaggerating. Exaggerating at 60-something leads to injuries. The only purpose of this is to impress people who really are not being impressed. As we grow older things begin to change, and some things change for the better. When I was 20, I could not admit to anybody that I was tired. I would have been the laughing stock in my community if I would admit any such phenomena. You know what they say about the unlimited energy that young people have. Now that I am in my 60s, I can blame my advancing years on just about anything. I love to do that, but at my age I dont have the energy. This has covered a multitude of sins, for which I am so grateful. Of course, it does have one drawback, when someone in their 80s invites me to go for a walk, what in the world can you say to that? This next one has to be one of my favorites. I would love to do that but I have to get home for my afternoon nap. The person will look at me, notice my maturing features and understand I desperately do need a nap or something resembling beauty sleep. I found one the other week that has proved quite bene cial. I was invited to a function during the evening, which turned out to be a rather boring affair. Once the meal was over people were milling around engaged in small talk. Nothing bores me quicker than small talk. Not knowing what to do, I pondered the situation for sometime. Then, like lightning from the heavens, I was struck with a brilliant idea. I went up to my host and said, Im sorry, but it is getting near my bedtime, and I have strict orders from my doctor to go to bed early. Youll have to excuse me. It worked like a charm. Everybody understood that a person of my age needs to go to bed early. I do not know who thought this up, probably Benjamin Franklin, but whoever it was, I owe them a steak dinner at the restaurant of their choice. It has now become part of my get-out-ofboring-situations arsenal. I was thinking about this the other day another good excuse popped into my head. Somebody invited me to come and play softball. At the time, they caught me off guard and I was trying to wiggle out of such an invitation. Then it dawned on me. I am sorry, I would like to but my health insurance does not cover that kind of activity. Whether my health insurance would cover that, I have no idea, but neither does anybody else, only my doctor knows for sure. While I was pondering this, I was reminded of a word from the Proverbs. Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain (Proverbs 25:14 KJV). Whoever boasts to others about their physical prowess is only fooling himself. The Rev. James L.
