I think the addition of the damage done in Bay County will more than put us over the required $26 million, though we still have to have the president sign a Federal State of Emergency for Florida before we can get nancial help.” She said they are still assessing damages in Holmes County, adding that it was safe to assume, like Washington County, all dirt roads were affected. “All of our roads are needing grading, shaping and ditches cleared,” said Stafford. “All in all INDEX Arrests .................................

Swartz, a fourth-grader at Bonifay Elementary School, has recently received a perfect 5 on his FCAT. “Math is the easiest subject in all of the whole school,” said Swartz. “25 percent is because of my family and 75 percent is because I helped myself.” Swartz said that when he grows up he wants to be in the Army to “ride some tanks.” “School’s harder for him because of his Attention De cit Hyperactivity Disorder,” said his father, Michael Swartz. “His mind moves faster then he can speak.

David began with a video captured by his son’s helmet camera during his tour of Afghanistan. “The only way you can get a feel for what they do is by seeing it with your own eyes,” explained David. “As you can see they are checking where they walk because there are land mines. Six months before he went to Afghanistan he was in ranger school; he’s only 23 years old.” He said that the Army Rangers rst formed during the early days of America. “Before that we had the organized battle tactics of the Europeans with bright uniforms and well formed front lines for straight-forward battles,” said David. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — The main topic of discussion at the Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation’s July 12 meeting was preparations for selling the old hospital and possible new locations for their annual and most pro table fundraiser, the Haunted Hospital. “We need to advertise it in the newspaper and take bids after the appraisal,” said JoAnn Baker, Administrator at Doctors Memorial Hospital. “There are two very interested companies already.” After a long discussion about possible locations for the new Haunted Hospital, Brenda Blitch, director of Patient and Public Affairs, asked that all board members do some research into the matter and then bring it before the board at their next meeting. “We’ve got at least another month before we need to start making a decision,” said Blitch. “Last year we didn’t even start with the preparations until the end of August. If it wasn’t such a good fund raiser I’d say forget it.” Blitch also informed the board that the summer was without public events. “We’re focusing on online employee training,” Blitch said. “We’ve got some updated software needed that we’re going to focus on.” Baker informed the board that there were new CECILIA SPEARS | Times-Advertiser The Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation discussed the next process of selling the old hospital while brainstorming ideas for a new location of their annual fundraiser The Haunted Hospital during their July 12 meeting.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, July 17, 2013 son has taken massive steps in slowly overcoming these deciencies to func tion properly and that these recent achievements have helped his son gain condence to continue striving forward. “I think it shows him what he can do when he applies himself,” said his dad. “First he won rst place in this year’s science fair and now a perfect score in Math in FCAT. I think this is a super way to end his fourth grade career.” Michael Swartz also wanted to give credit to his teachers for their extra time and attention in helping his son. “He is a super star in Math with a deep desire to problem solve,” said his teacher, Heather Rich. “He’s very in quisitive with a unique way of solving math problems. He’s done a wonderful job and I am so very proud of him.” FCAT from page A1 WEEKEND SPE CIALS FOR L OC ALS WITH A FL ORID A I D 40% O F F on S a tur da y and Sunda y only D AIL Y SHOW S FEA TURING : D olphins S ea Lions Reptiles Bir ds D o gs and O ther A nimal Surprises w w w .G ulfW or ldM arineP ar k .c om C ALL FOR MORE INFORM A TION 850-234-5271 OR VISIT O p en R ain or S hine!

That’s when Rogers Rangers started the Rangers, using the discipline of the Europeans with the tactical maneu vers of the Indians.” During World War II, he said William Darby mod ernized the Rangers creating an elite group to be the “spearhead” of United States Army in tactical combat, with their training being extremely strenuous and of ten dangerous. “If you see someone with a Ranger badge, that means they’ve been through some stuff,” said David. “They know what it’s like to be hungry.” He said 85 percent of their work is done at night and work in teams of ve to six men. “One of the missions my son went on was to recover four vehicles that were ambushed and ended up in a reght that lasted eight hours,” said David. “No one on his team was injured, thank God, and eight enemy soldiers were killed.” After he was done speaking someone in the audi ence asked the difference between the Army Rangers and the Green Berets. “They’re trained for specialized foreign tactics, like raids and training,” said David. He was also asked the difference between Army Rangers and Navy SEALs. “They’re really a surgical strike team that are trained at the ocean and tortured for weeks,” said Da vid. “We affectionately call them World Class Athletes with Guns. They’re the ones that if you were being held hostage they can ambush a place and kill everyone that needed to be killed and leave those that need to be alive, alive; it’s far more surgical with them.” R aA NGE rR from page A1 it went well. The men came out and worked through the holiday.” The board approved Stafford’s request to use the county engineers to accompany Federal Emergency Management Agency agents if the government approves of funding. Commissioner David Whitaker voiced his concerns about a local resident whose residential area was ooded with dirt from a county maintained road where a culvert was clogged and with the recent rain washed the road into her yard. “I know it’s a private area but it’s our fault that the road emptied into her yard,” said Whitaker. “I think it is our responsibility. We need to x it.” County Attorney Jeff Goodman said that under a state of emergency they had more exibility. “These are unusual circumstanc es,” said Goodman. “That’s why a state of emergency is in place; for exibility. This is about the health, safety and well being of the citizens and we shouldn’t not help because of the policy.” After much discussion the board agreed that as long as the county was under a State of Emergency then they would extend help to those in need. County Engineers Cliff Knauer and Whitney Nelson assured the board that they were available to help in developing a list of driveways in desperate need of repair. Commissioner Bill Parish asked Goodman if any employee was able to refuse to work overtime. “During those days when we need ed workers the most we had quite a few that were refusing to answer their phones, failed to return phone calls and even had their phones turned off,” said Parish. “We even had some road foremen who didn’t go out until a commissioner called them out. I think they should know that af ter a rain like we had they’re going to need to be out there with every able body they can to x it.” Goodman conrmed that it is in their right to require their employees to work overtime and to be on stand by for their services to be rendered. Commissioner Bobby Sasnett also asked for a recommendation of action for those roads with deep cracks. “When that water seeps in and settles in the foundation all that traf c is going to just bust it loose,” said Sasnet. Nelson recommended a crack seal ant used often in Jackson County. “It won’t x the problem but it will prolong the life of the road by pro tecting the base from moisture,” said Nelson. “I’ll come to the next board meeting with a price quote, but if I re member correctly, it’s fairly cheap.” The board discussed the upcom ing Solid Waste Franchise Agree ment Renewals. “Now’s the time for questions, comments and concerns,” said Wil liams. “We’ve been having some is sues with trash being strewn all over God’s green earth because of an open ended trash truck. We’re getting a lot of ‘oops, that wasn’t us,’ and when we prove it we get a lot of ‘oops, we’ll never do it again’ and I’m sick of it.” Goodman said that the real ques tion was if they wanted to keep the multiple franchise agreement. “Do you want to spend the mon ey and man power to keep up with a multiple franchise agreement?” asked Goodman. “That’s a lot of time and manpower to keep up with every one’s status, like proof of insurance. Also if you do keep the multiple fran chise agreement you’ll have to look into health standards, putting teeth in your agreement to make sure these franchises are living up to their end of the bargain and a possible bond just in case they don’t so you can pro tect those citizens who are paying for these services.” The board agreed to hold a work shop to discuss what should be done with the Solid Waste Franchise Agreement. The board also agreed to allow Knauer to look into how much it would cost to put a mesh trap at the Holmes County Correctional Institute’s sew er line because Commissioner Parish had informed them that the City of Bonifay was in straits with items be ing dragged from the institute’s sew er line into the Waste Water Treat ment Facility, getting stuck in pumps and burning the motors. “We can put in a screen to lter those items for a decent price and just have the inmates clean it out on a daily basis,” said Knauer. Board approved of a resolution against illegal immigration with a vote of 4 to 1, with Parish voting “no.” “People who enter the United States illegally should not receive any benets from American taxpay ers,” read Williams. “All United States boards should be totally secured and 100 percent veried and any person in the U.S. illegally should receive no amnesty. I wholeheartedly agree.” EME rR GEN cC Y from page A1 employees such as a new Director of Mercy and Ad vanced Registered Nurse Practitioner Clinical Docu mentation Specialists. “It’s based on increasing patient satisfaction and increasing revenue with better documentation,” said Baker. “We’ll be able to focus entirely on documenta tion to be better prepared for 2014.” HOSPIta TA L from page A1 CEc C ILIA SPEARs S | Times-Advertiser Director of Emergency Management Wanda Stafford gives an update to the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners of the recent catastrophic rains that have put Holmes County in a State of Emergency.

The first part of the Florida Legislature’s study on the impact of gaming in the state was released on July 1, and the results were about as predictable as standing on 20. The lottery is very healthy. The horses and dogs are not. The Legislature commissioned New Jersey-based Spectrum Gaming Group to conduct at $400,000 examination of gambling in Florida and provide lawmakers with objective data when they consider comprehensive gaming legislation next year. Part 1, released on July 1, looks at the history and current state of gambling. Part 2, due in October, will assess potential changes and economic effects on communities. That’s likely to fuel the most controversy, although the study itself will not make policy recommendations. Part 1 laid out the current landscape, finding that the lottery set a record in fiscal year 2011-12 with sales of $4.45 billion, up 11 percent from the previous year. That puts Florida third nationally in total sales revenue, behind New York and Massachusetts. That jibes with the eyeball test of the lines at Florida Lottery stations in convenience stores and supermarkets. Pari-mutuels are going the opposite direction, and have been for some time. Once a cornerstone of the state’s gaming industry, greyhound and thoroughbred racing seem more like a throwback to the Cold War era. In the last 20 years, the amount wagered on dog racing has fallen 67 percent, and attendance at horse tracks has fallen a staggering 85 percent. Jai-alai, the other primary pari-mutuel, has all but disappeared in South Florida, suffering a 99.7 percent decline over the same period. Because of state regulations, though, greyhound tracks are still required to conduct a certain number of races each season if they want to supplement their revenues by offering other forms of gambling, such as poker rooms. Those have proved to be quite popular. But it’s ridiculous to force dogs to race for declining crowds when people merely want to play cards. Once a track is allowed to operate a poker room, why should it be required also to run greyhounds? Ebro Greyhound Park is caught in Tallahassee’s contradictory confusion about gaming. Waiting for the sequel IN OUR VIEW The Prattler does not have his good friend and former fellow employee at the county courthouse, Lois Ruth Hardin, to keep him in check when inclined to write excessively on one subject. I felt her presence when it occurred to me that I was staying on the same topic when approaching the column for this week. Early in my experience in writing “Perry’s Prattle,” the subject matter continued the same for three articles concerning a visit to the Florida Legislative session. This lady’s kind admonition was: “Just how many articles can you write on one visit to Tallahassee?” The answer was “no more than three or four.” Other topics were soon explored! This is on my mind today as last month’s watermelon festival, and the resulting experiences, seem to before my face as the week’s narrative is approached. Before I leave the reference to Aunt Lois, as we affectionately referred to her in the courthouse, she was the lady who designed the colorful and eye catching watermelon festival stationery, which is still in use. In former times, our stationery was merely reprinted by Xerox machine each year with it losing much of its quality every time it was copied. This outspoken lady bravely asked me, as chairman, if I didn’t think it was time to improve the quality of the much used letterhead format for the annual festival. I readily agreed and assigned the task to her. The new and improved trademark stationery was soon a reality and is still proudly in use. Last week, mention was made of the writer’s involvement in delivering the prize watermelons, which is a good way to have some “quality time” with my grandsons as well as make meaningful visits with those who have supported the festival down through the years. One such visit was with the Bill and Sybil Webb family, longtime strong supporters of the watermelon festival. In their home was their son, Wade, who gave me some valuable pointers on resurrecting some old 8-track music. We also had conversations with their daughters, Carla and Jessica, who were visiting from their LaGrange, Ga., home. Our time in the Webb home was extended longer than expected as one of the powerful heavy showers blew in during our time there. We had to compete with the rain beating on the sky lights in the spacious den of the Webb home. Young Jessica was an interesting conversationalist and had many questions for the writer, especially as she began to learn of the many “careers” he has enjoyed. One of those experiences of the past include almost all of my U. S. Army time being spent in Fort Lewis, Washington in 1946-47. Bill Webb had told me of Carla’s son, Jonathan, being presently stationed in the state of Washington at the military installation, now PERRY’S PRATTLE Perry Wells Lois Ruth Hardin, shown in the funeral program at the time of her death, Feb. 15, 2008. Hardin keeps the Prattler in check I often write about old businesses, but I always like to know about new businesses in town. Two young ladies have started businesses recently that add choices for shopping at home. Though both are called boutiques, their business styles vary widely. The most recent one is called Southern Comfort and the proprietor is Shanta Sapp who graduated from Ponce de Leon High School in 1999 and from FSU. Her husband Jeremy Sapp is in the logging business, with his father, here in the county. The couple has two boys in the rst and third grades at Bonifay Elementary. Shanta wanted to have work in Bonifay so that she would be nearby should the school need to call her. She previously had a business in Chipley but since both her mother and grandmother died last year she had no one to call if there was an emergency at school. Thus the idea was born to start a business in Bonifay. Perhaps the most unique feature of the business the location. It is at 405 E. Evans Ave, in a house many of us old timers will remember as the Newsome home, the house Maebell Newsome Chesnut grew up in. Each room houses a different collection. The front room features a wall of costume jewelry in a color to match any out t. There are also candles by Rewind that are in cut off wine bottles. They are avored like the bottle and are made in Charleston, S.C. Shanta buys American made products when at all possible. Another room holds baby gifts and clothing. A line of smocked baby clothes are featured. She is looking for a local person who might supply the shop with smocked children clothes. In the former dining room are many gifts suitable for the bride. Monograming is available and a massive display of monogrammed “wreaths” are available for decorating the home. Some brides are also using them as decorations for their weddings. Bath and Body products from Farm House, all natural products, are housed in this room. A former bedroom holds the ready-to-wear with more modest styles to choose from than some “boutiques.” Ollie Mae’s, operated by Jacqueline Don Sims, has been in business for one year and is experiencing a lot of success. She also reaches back into history for the basis for her business. The name comes from her great-great-grandmother, Ollie Mae Pilcher Rogers, and some of her display furniture is handed down. A clothes press New boutiques cater to young at heart HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison See OUR VIEW A5 See PRATTLE A5 Dear Editor, In 2008 the voters of Florida over whelming approved a measure de ning marriage as between one man and one woman. It’s been reported that due to the ve U.S. Supreme Court Justices disagreeing with that de nition, the ballot in 2014 may contain language seeking to overturn that de nition. The approved de nition agrees one hundred percent with what the Supreme Judge God state many times in the Holy Bible, his book of laws. Leave correct de nition as it is. Dick Basht Bonifay Dear Editor, I am much concerned about the new gun laws that our President and Congress are trying to pass at this time and their infringement upon the second amendment rights given to citizen to keep and bear arms. I ask myself, what would have happened if such laws had been in effect when our forefathers fought for our independence from England? We would have lost that war and maybe never won our independence. How about the War of 1812 when the British tried to put us back under their rule? Much of the ghting in these wars was done by civilians with their guns. Not long after the Second World War ended, I watched a documentary on television in which a high ranking Japanese of cer was being interviewed. The date, station and name of of cer being interviewed are not remembered, but I do recall a question asked, ”Why didn’t the Japanese invade the west coast of the United States right after Pearl Harbor?” His answer was something similar to this, that they knew that our military was weak, but we also knew that nearly every home in the United States had guns, ri es, pistols, shotguns, and the like and we couldn’t maintain a force there in the face of this. Your people would have killed too many of our soldiers. The United Nations and many foreign countries are putting pressure on the United States to disarm our people, but I believe that one of the best ways to secure our country is to have an armed civilization against outside and inside enemies who try to take over our country. I feel very deeply for the people who have been killed and their families and know that something must be done, but let us not take all the guns away from the people. Wise men wrote the second amendment to the Constitution and we need to keep it for our own future safety. Malcolm Roberts Spanish Fort, Ala.

However, that plan was put on hold indefinitely when Attorney General Pam Bondi quickly issued an opinion that the Legislature must first approve any countywide referendum before it’s voted on locally. The other option is to amend the state Constitution. The Legislature needs to differentiate among the different gaming issues, such as expanding existing operations vs. bringing gambling into new areas, giving groups monopolies on some forms of gaming and treating some forms of gambling as acceptable but others like they were the devil’s den. The gaming study sequel should prove to be more engaging than the original. known as Joint Base Lewis-McChord. In my time there, the two military bases were two separate units. As we continued on our journey of delivering prize melons, weaving in and out among the heavy trafc in the town, we made our stop at KFC, after having talked with the manager in the bank, Sylvia Brown Wright, and received a glowing comment on her continued enjoyment of reading “Perry’s Prattle.” We did not see Sylvia at the restaurant, but the employees there accepted the watermelon with much glee, with the grandsons predicting that it may not survive long enough for the manager who have her share. Other compliments regarding the Prattle, received on the on our travels, came from Marvis Jett, who has told me often that she is a regular reader of the column. She informed me that I would be receiving a formal invitation to the Roulhac School Reunion scheduled for July 19, an event I hope to attend. Our delivery schedule took us to the home of Dr. James Craven where we were greeted by Martha Toole, who worked in the medical practice for Dr. Craven for more than 30 years. She is now assisting in his care, as are others, as he convalesces in his home. Martha greeted the grandsons warmly, stating she knew their respective fathers, and also told us of the importance of reading “Perry’s Prattle” each week, assuring me that Dr. Craven enjoys the writings also. It is always a joy to deliver a prize watermelon to Jeanette Townsend, who continues to support the festival as her husband, Lamar Townsend did. Her melon arrived just as a torrential downpour slacked long enough for it to be handed to her by way of the garage. The threesome of Perry, Dan and Perry II, picked our time between the rain, and delivered 34 of the very best watermelons to the faithful purchasers in Chipley and Bonifay, who can be relied upon each year to come forth with their successful bids. None of us complained of the rain, neither did we hear any complaints from others. Judge Colby Peel’s Judicial Assistant, Lora Fisher, also is actively involved, along with the judge, in the many duties of the annual event. She told of seeing my crew about town as we carefully followed our planned route, delivering the melons. I did confess to her that the “driver” made a couple of driving “boo-boos,” prompting grandson, Dan, to ask: “Granddaddy, do you want me to drive?” My reply was: “No, You will scare me more than I am scaring you.” Somewhere in my travels that week, Virginia Teel Moore, a Holmes County Native, now living in Chipley, was encountered. She reiterated her faithfulness in reading my weekly narratives and also extended a compliment on my sister Hazel’s “Happy Corner,” which also appears in the Washington County News, along with my “Prattle.” Surely next week’s article will take a different direction away from the watermelon festival. If not, Sarah Franklin and Joyce Odom, nieces of Lois Ruth Hardin, will remind me of the admonition of their aunt so many years ago. PRATTLE from page A4 HAPPY from page A4 made by her great greatgrandfather Pilcher serves as a display case. When asked what motivated the opening of her shop, Jacqueline, a former Miss Holmes County, said that she, her mother Tammy, and her grandmother, Jackie Middlebrooks all loved to shop. Also, after graduating from Holmes County High and Florida State University, she was unable to find a position to teach history, so grandfather Joe Middlebrooks hired her to keep the Middlebrooks Plumbing and Equipment Rental open. Since there was lots of room in the building located on Highway 90, it was a perfect place to put her fashion sense to work. Her hours are from 7 a.m. till 4 p.m. The plumbing business phone starts ringing at that early hour and she is there. Saturday hours are flexible. (you can call her at 326-3161 or 547-3658) In addition to clothes for the 18 to 35 year olds, she carries some lingerie and an extensive line of jewelry, both costume and the Mahlon Grace line which compares with Sorelli. Hand crocheted baby clothes as well as unique head bands are made by Sonja Miller Prescot. Jacqueline is married to Jamie Sims, son of Eddie and Suzanne Sims. He is a HCHS and Florida State graduate and is manager of Sun Trust in Panama City. Another beauty queen, the former Miss Bonifay Chelsea Cullifer, the daughter of Mike and Kim Carroll Cullifer is Jacquline’s able assistant and model. They also conduct classes for girls in the pageant circuit. Recently, our granddaughter, Haley Webb, a student at Abraham Baldwin College in Tifton, Ga., was here. She was looking for a dress in a specific color to wear in a sorority sister’s wedding. After a futile search in Dothan, we dropped in to Ollie Mae’s. Within 20 minutes, she’d found the perfect dress and the ear rings to match. Welcome to Southern Comfort and Ollie Mae’s as they join Fashion Frenzy, another boutique shop now located in Doc’s Market shopping center. We wish you all much success. Thank you for providing the ladies of our community an alternative to out of town shopping. Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, July 17, 2013

By F RANK SARGEANT franksargeant@charter.net Whether your taste runs to snappers — red or gray; groupers — red, black or gag; or amberjacks black sea bass and grunts, the heart of the summer is prime time to put some fresh llets on the grill throughout the Florida Panhandle. Red snapper season closed July 14. Mangrove or gray snapper have no closed season, and neither do red or black grouper. The gag grouper season opened June 1 and continues to Dec. 4, and the AJ season is June 1 through July 31. There is no closed season on grunts or black sea bass, smaller sh but just as tasty. Panhandle waters are blessed with a vast assortment of reef sh habitat, both natural and manmade, and any good charting program — Navionics makes some of the best — can point you toward dozens of likely spots in any seaworthy boat. The Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission also has a complete list of all arti cial reefs, with depths and GPS numbers, at http://myfwc.com/ media/131585/reefs.pdf The bottom of much of the Gulf, out to the edge of the continental shelf, is a gentle slope of fairly smooth sand, and this type of bottom does not make good sh habitat. But here and there outcrops of rock or ledges and holes create refuges for the chain of life to gain a foothold. Bait schools gather on these spots, and the larger predators naturally follow. Placing ships or concrete rubble on bottom gives Nature a jump-start, and these arti cial structures often begin attracting sh within a few days of placement. Some of the man-made reefs are barely three miles off the beach, making them easy to get to in most saltwater-type boats. Others are 20 to 30 miles out. In general, those farther from shore tend to have more and larger sh simply because they are shed less. If you don’t have a larger boat — 25 feet or more with twin engines is about the safe minimum — you can take advantage of the huge party-boat eet at all Panhandle ports to get you to the reefs economically and safely. Sonar and GPS are a must for reef shing, and the new “scanning” sonars are particularly effective — Lowrance, Humminbird, Garmin and others have various models. Basically the GPS gets you on the spot, and the sonar shows you an image of what’s there, both in terms of bottom and the sh and bait that’s on the structure. Locating a good spot is only half the battle. Anchoring offshore is an art in itself. The trick is to motor up-current (or upwind if current is negligible) far enough so that when you drop anchor you can back down to put the stern of the boat either directly over the structure or just a few yards upcurrent of it. In water 100 feet deep, this requires a big anchor, a big chain lead, and 500 feet of line to provide adequate scope on a breezy day, so it’s no small investment. Once the boat is properly positioned, it’s a matter of dropping the right bait down to entice whatever you’re after. Gags and black grouper tend to like hand-sized pin sh better than anything, though any sort of live bait sh will do the job. Red snapper readily grab live thread ns or sardines, jumbo shrimp, or fresh squid, and can also be caught on frozen bait sh when they’re in a biting mood. Gray snapper love tiny pin sh or scaled sardines, also big shrimp. Red grouper eat about anything, but take cut bait better than gags. And amberjack — which are not really bottom sh but are nearly always found circling around bottom structure — are more likely to attack large bait sh like blue runners. (AJs are also suckers for jumbo topwater plugs — the big poppers Northeast anglers use for stripers work well, and the louder you work them, the better.) Eat your Wheaties if you’re going after greater amberjack—they frequently weigh over 40 pounds and are tremendously powerful sh. Standard reef shing gear is typically a stout 8-foot rod, 3/0 star-drag reel and 60-pound-test mono, with about 3 feet of 80 pound hard mono or uorocarbon leader running to a circle hook, size 4/0 to 8/0 — note that circle hooks are required for harvesting reef species. Biologists say the hooks make it less likely sh will swallow the hook, which makes it more likely that undersize sh will survive catch and release. (If you want some of the smaller species like black sea bass and grunts to add to the grill, put down a line or two with 1/0 hooks and a piece of cut sh about the size of a golf ball.) Egg sinker weights from 2 to 8 ounces are used above the swivel connecting running line and leader — use plenty to get you to the bottom fast despite current. The groupers are usually caught right on the bottom, or within a yard of it, while snapper tend to stack up in a “Christmas tree” over the reef, and can often be caught best by cranking up the bait 6 to 10 feet off bottom. Fishing with a circle hook is a different experience for those used to standard J-hooks — you don’t set the hook by pulling on the rod. Instead, when you feel a bite, you simply reel as fast as you can until the rod doubles over—the hook slides along the sh’s mouth and catches in the jaw latch, or at least that’s the theory — in general, it works pretty well. Most of the ght in handling grouper comes in the rst 10 feet. It’s a matter of reeling for all you and your tackle can stand until the sh comes up away from the rocks, because most will try to dive back into the cover. If they get there, it’s game over. But get them coming that rst few yards and things get fairly easy. Bag limits for reef sh, particularly the groupers, are a complex deal — best bet is to go to the FWC website at www.myfwc.com and get a print-out of the various combinations of sh allowed, and carry this on the boat to make sure you don’t run afoul of the sh police back at the docks. (You can get this on your cellphone, too, but not if you’re out of tower range when you need it.) The rules also require you to have aboard a dehooking device and a de ating device to allow air in the stomach of sh brought up from the depths to be released so that they can swim back down when you let them go. Again, the idea is to reduce the release mortality and improve the shery. There are now also some clever weighted “depth sled” devices that you clip to the sh’s jaw, send it back down deep, and then get an auto-release of the pre-set clip. The sh, back at its usual pressure, de ates and goes on its way; www. theseaqualizer.com Flatliners It often pays to put out a few at lines or unweighted lines with live bait sh in summer shing around the reefs. King mackerel, some leftover cobia, Spanish mackerel and even an occasional dolphin or sail sh are likely to come along and grab a blue runner or a big thread n swimming around back there in the current. A conventional reel setup works OK for this, but a big offshore spinning rig with 50-pound-test braid is better suited to the task. Just make sure the reel holds 300 yards or more of line, because if you stick a jumbo king mackerel while you’re anchored, you’re going to need it. It often helps the production of the y line if you hang a couple of bags of chopped bait sh chum off the transom. The slick the chum creates will draw sh in from hundreds of yards down-current. You’re likely to see a cloud of gray snapper coming up into the chum off the reef, as well, and you can catch these guys on unweighted pieces of cut bait allowed to slowly free-fall down into their feeding zone. Bring along a lighter spinning rig with 15-poundtest braid for this duty, and use smaller circle hooks. Heat up the grill All of the reef species are delicious on the table, and all can be prepared the same: Simply llet, strip off the skin, sprinkle on a bit of teriyaki sauce and toss them on a hot grill. They cook in minutes — never overcook the reef shes because they’re at their tasty best when just done. A squeeze of freshcut lemon and maybe a drizzle of soft margarine completes the dish. Everybody will want seconds when you whip up a summer mixed grill.

JOHN PAIVA | Special to Halifax Gag grouper like this one are a popular summer target on the reefs, particularly in the waters southeast of the Panhandle. Live pin sh are among the top baits. Summer offers a cornucopia of tasty reef species FRANK SARGEANT | Special to Halifax King mackerel frequently roam the waters above the reefs, and can readily be caught on at lines equipped with a live blue runner. Live bait should be no problem to hook I know there are only two weeks left to snapper sh, but if you don’t catch any it’s not because there is no bait. Pilchards have infested the bay. If you own a cast net and know how to throw it, your livewell should be full when you leave the pass. It seems any shoreline in two feet of water or less is covered up in schools of bait. On Monday, all you needed was some patience and a cast net and you would have more bait than you could use. After all, two snappers are all you are allowed and you shouldn’t need two dozen pilchards to catch two. If you don’t know how to throw a net there is always the bait boat waiting at the mouth of the pass and they (there are two of them) have all the bait you would ever need to catch a limit of snapper or grouper. The difference between live bait and cut cigar minnows is like night and day. Before I had pilchards, I might spend an hour trying to get red snapper to eat, but last Monday with live bait it only took a short time to ll the box and go off looking for something else. It used to be when a boat pulled up on a spot everyone would rst sh with dead bait. After that got old, and no one was getting any bites they would switch over to live bait. If you started out with live bait and they stopped biting, then there was little use to drop dead bait down because they just didn’t prefer dead bait to live bait. If the Gulf ever calms down, and it doesn’t seem it will, there is the possibility of running the beach in less than 20 feet of depth and spotting schools of cigar minnows or herring and catching them for bait. You should have a live well with enough water circulation because several dozen herring breathe up massive amounts of oxygen in a short time. The snapper are out there and the bait is accessible, so there is no reason to not catch a limit unless the weather turns bad.

S PORTS A Section By PAT McCANN News Herald Executive Sports Editor Keith Baker doesn’t need to have the good old days of Bay County youth baseball mapped out and explained to him. The Panama City director of Leisure Services lived them. Baker played in the Florida Little Major League system during the late 1970s and early 1980s. He graduated to Junior Major League, then Senior, and moved on to Rutherford High School and American Legion Post 66, then ultimately college baseball. The youth baseball system Baker experienced here where basically every community within the county offered youth baseball no longer exists. Panama City is responsible for maintaining ve baseball elds, but they often sit idle. City-maintained ballparks include Frank Nelson Park on 23rd Street, Sudduth Park in the Cove neighborhood, Daf n Park in Millville, Oak Grove off 17th Street and Woods Field behind Gulf Power. Mostly, the city mows the elds as they otherwise sit dormant throughout the year, except for teams from the Jackson E. Jones league. That organization also has suffered from lower participation numbers, but did have four T-ball teams play at Woods Field, an age 13-14 team at Oak Grove and a 15-16 team at Daf n Park. Baker would like to see leagues ourish within the city, but also realizes participation numbers in youth baseball have been in decline for a number of years. “I would de nitely say they are, there are so many factors,” Baker said. “Kids would rather stay inside; there’s more inside opportunities, especially in the gaming world.” To attract some of them back to the game, or simply provide a chance to play for those who might not want to travel to other communities to participate, Baker believes the model to follow is the one supplied by Lynn Haven and Panama City Beach. Those two communities have all youth recreational baseball and softball come under the auspices of the park and recreation department, and don’t rely on parents to form leagues and provide a board of directors to ensure longevity. “Places like Lynn Haven, they control the environment there, they have city staff that coordinates the program from A to Z,” Baker said. “They nd coaches, sponsors, buy uniforms, provide umpires, scheduling. When little Johnny or Lori comes in and pays $50 they’re ready to play. “That so much easier to do versus trying to corral a bunch of people. And the moms and dads don’t have to work in concession stands. There’s no fundraising. The Beach has a very good league, too.” Baker is hopeful that Panama City can again have an active role in providing opportunities in both baseball and softball. With facilities already available what is lacking is the necessary funding to provide staff to fully utilize the opportunity. Baker said one of his ultimate goals is to begin, then oversee that process. “That’s the direction we’re planning on heading eventually,” he said. “I think there is a need for that in our parks. “A lot of kids otherwise may not have an opportunity to play. They can’t travel to get there (where leagues currently exist) or don’t have the money or resources. There is a need for programming.” What exists now is the city playing the role of facilitator. It offers the facility and keeps it playable. If parents or adult organizers don’t band together and pave the way for a new league, the aforementioned ballparks remain idle. “The day of moms and dads coming together and putting together an administration are almost over, everything else has gone to programming,” Baker said. “Back in the day, and as recent as the mid to late 1990s pretty much everything was run by the local citizens. “That style format went on for years, and then a combination of things came into play. You had select teams, then travel teams and it reshaped the way things worked and the way they are now. Travel teams went into everyone’s programs and started cherrypicking (elite players) and each league started to fall, fall, fall.” As a result, a quaint and scenic venue such as Sudduth Ballpark is more representative of the past than the present. “It’s shameful there’s not a league there anymore,” Baker said. “It’s sad to see that little eld not be what it used to be. That’s a true neighborhood ballpark.” While Panama City does have ve elds to offer, one potential drawback compared to the other areas where kids currently participate, namely Lynn Haven, Panama City Beach and Callaway, is that it does not have a large complex of elds that serves as the focal point for youth activity. Baker is quick to return to programming as the answer for future commitment by the city. “In a nutshell, I would agree that times have changed,” he said. “As the surroundings change, people in my position have to realize the different challenges and dynamics and adapt around it. We have to come up with ways that guarantee the existence for future generations. “I’m always passionate about this issue, but at the same time don’t want to negatively impact” the current leagues in other communities. UMPIRE SHORTAGE If, in the future more kids are attracted to youth baseball and softball the next looming obstacle could be a shortage of umpires to of ciate the games. Greg Klanjac has been umpiring in Bay County for 23 years and is a member of Bay Area Of cials, one of a handful of groups here that provide umpiring for differing levels of baseball and softball. “When I started I used to handle all the local leagues,” Klanjac said. “We had 12 to 13 different leagues … you could work Monday through Saturday if you wanted to call a game every day.” He doesn’t work the youth level any more, but said he is cognizant of venues that once were home to thriving leagues now converted for youth soccer participation. “(Youth baseball) is real competitive, more intense than high school,” Klanjac said. “Everybody is right there on top of you. The fence is so close if people are whispering you’re hearing it. “I started in Little League and worked my way up to (high school) junior varsity and then varsity,” Klanjac said. “Each one was a big step. Little League was where you used to learn the rules, and everything that can happen, happens in those games. And the dads would question everything. It’s a lot easier to call college ball. “But umpires are dying off, too. With less kids playing there’s more people who don’t want to get involved. If you don’t recruit young talent eventually it’s going to die off.” Klanjac said that his group once had as many as 35-40 members, but currently numbers closer to 20. “Kids don’t want to get into it, plus you’re getting out there in the heat,” Klanjac said. “A lot of times now you have to break in doing high school. With no Little League going on they have to cut their teeth on JV.” Umpire fees escalate by level of competition called. Some standard fees for youth baseball are $40-45, with $55 for high school and as high as $150 for Panhandle Conference games for junior colleges. Eddie Kemp is a member of Gulf Coast Of cials and echoed Klanjac’s concerns about a numbers shortage. Kemp said his group had about 40 members when he started and recently built back up to 26. “It’s a combination of things with newer of cials,” said Kemp, who has of ciated games here for 17 years. “Not wanting to face a coach who might be unsportsmanlike. And it’s miserably hot out there. It’s really hard to recruit younger ones.” Kemp said his group starts meeting in November for the upcoming season. He said the current culture of abusive fans and antipathy toward authority gures also impacts the process. It wasn’t long ago that a soccer of cial in Utah was killed when attacked by a young player, and of cials in sports such as football and hockey have experienced dif culty with overzealous parents in some parts of the country. It reached the point in one Chicago suburb that signs are posted at all ballparks in the district with the message: “This is a game being played by children. If they win or lose every game of the season it will not impact what college they attend or their future potential income.” Kemp encourages interested citizens to get involved, however, and invites them to the gcof cials.com website or to call him at 2711782 if they are interested in of ciating any sport, not just baseball or softball. Andy Chizmar is a veteran member of Bay Area Of cials Association. “It’s not so much less opportunities, you always have games,” Chizmar said. “Most leagues with the younger kids still have a lot of participation, but the 12 and up is where you’re seeing the decrease.” The decrease has been just as severe in his organization. “Oh man, it’s dropped off so bad,” Chizmar said. “We only have 16 umpires to try to cover everything. Sometimes we’re pulling umpires from everywhere. “Really, with the economy the way it is you can make some decent money so you think people would be interested. But the last couple of times we’ve advertised we haven’t had anybody come to the meetings. The other thing is kids have changed. It used to be you didn’t have kids talk back to you. And I’ve had to call police two or three times” to a ballpark when parents became unruly. Part III looks deeper into the travel ball baseball commitment.

Washington County News z Holmes County Times-Advertiser B PAGE 1 Section E XTRA Trivia Fun Wilson Casey WC@Trivia Guy.com FIRST PLACE RED TEAM SECOND PLACE YELLOW TEAM THIRD PLACE PURPLE TEAM Special to Extra CHIPLEY — The second annual Rockin’ Robotics Camp was another huge success. Although the camp was extended from four to ve days, the most repeated comment in the student evaluations was, “more days, more programs, more, more, more!” The camp was made possible by grant funding from AT&T Florida and coordinated by the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations. The WHTC Foundation applied for the grant to create STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) hands-on experiences for the campers. Seventhand eighth-grade students learned to analyze and solve problems utilizing engineering design processes, which will help develop their math and science skills. Student teams designed, built and programmed their robots for competition against other teams in an exciting, nontraditional environment. Problem-solving, real-world applications and critical thinking skills were the key elements of the project. The camp also helped students to develop interpersonal skills such as communications, teamwork, leadership and project management. The camp also was fortunate to have “Rocket Guy” John Hansel join them for the rst day of the camp. Hansel is a retired supervisory electronics engineer who spent 32 years at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Panama City. He is a senior member of the National Association of Rocketry and is a Level 3 Certi cation Committee associate for high powered rocketry. Rocket Guy introduced the class to the scienti c foundations of rocketry, then allowed them to build their own rockets, which they launched that afternoon using water and air pressure. The camp staff included camp coordinator Stephanie Halley, drafting instructor Tanya Taylor and seven mentors from Taylor’s Drafting Program: Breaden Cooper, Jimmy Taylor, Bubba Davis, Anthony Smith, Bradley Goodson, Lisa Keen and Stanton Guthrie. The mentors provided guidance to the campers but allowed them the independence to create, develop and program the robots as a team. The teams learned about gear ratios, locomotion and energy as they constructed and programmed their robots using the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT robotics kit. The mentors also assisted each student in creating some simple computer-aided drafting designs to show them the association between design and construction. The highlight of the camp was the ultimate challenge as teams competed by putting their robots through a series of tracks, turns and missions, each of which had to be individually programmed into the robots’ MIND Blocks. “We were so creative and focused and very determined to make their robots perform perfectly,” said Martha Compton, WHTC director, who was the inspiration behind the robotics camp. The RED Team, which was small in numbers but strong in brain power, took rst place in the competition. The team included Stephen Chosmos and Bobby Holmes with Bradley Goodson as their mentor. Team Yellow, which placed second, included Jake Whitehead, Briton Watson, Klaytin Hendrix and Dylan Rudd with mentor Bubba Davis. The third-place winners, Team Purple, were Kaci Compton, Jaqueline Stewart, Olivia Cotton and Jillian Hales with Anthony Smith and Lisa Keen as their mentors. WHTC and the Rockin’ Robots campers would also like to thank Capital City Bank, Community South Credit Union, Gene Halley, the WHTC Foundation, WHTC, the Chipley Fire Department (Floyd Aycock) and the WHTC electrician instructor for sponsoring and arranging camp lunches, cookouts and water activities. Also a big thank you to the competition judges, Bill Howell of Atkins Global and Jonathan Webb of the Florida Department of Transportation. All of the students said they would return to another camp in the future and frequently commented, “It was fun, and I learned a lot!” Mentors Anthony Smith and Lisa Keen, and, from left, Jillian Hales, Lisa Keen, Olivia Cotton, Anthony Smith, Jaqueline Stewart and Kaci Compton. “Trivia Fun” with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country and is a weekly feature in The Washington County News and The Holmes County Times-Advertiser. 1) Whose quotes included, “Chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice”?

It is the 53rd year of the program that began in 1960 as a project of the Columbian Squires of North America to honor the Blessed Virgin under her title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas. The program has continued since then as a project of Squires Circles, Councils and Fourth Degree assemblies in several jurisdictions. Today four Silver Roses travel through North America exemplifying Knights of Columbus devotion to Our Lady and commitment to the Culture of Life. In 2013, one Rose began its journey in Ontario moving through the central United States. A second Rose starts its route in Manitoba, moving westward to British Columbia and then down the Pacic coast through California before turning eastward to Arizona and New Mexico. The third Rose starts in Connecticut, moving through the eastern United States and the Gulf Coast. The Fourth Rose starts in Virginia moving south along the Eastern Seaboard. The four Roses converge at the International Bridge in Laredo, Texas, where they are transferred to the Knights of Mexico who carry them to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico, where the program ends with a service on Dec. 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Our Lady of Guadalupe Silver Rose Run will be coming through the area July 24, and a pecial Mass service will be at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church in Bonifay.

Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.jamesandlipford.com. Linda Willett Williams of Ocala died June 6, 2013, at Sylvias House. She was a daughter, wife, mother, teacher, sister and friend. Born in Pensacola 67 years ago, she attended elementary and high school in Holmes County and married her sweetheart, Jimmy Williams. They were married 47 years. A University of Florida College of Education graduate, Linda did her intern teaching at Wyomina Park Elementary, began her career at Oakcrest and then moved to Ocala Springs when it opened 26 years ago. Of her 35 years as a teacher, 34 were in Marion County. A member of the Marion Education Association, she retired in 2003. Linda continued to follow her Gators as an Alumni Association member, a Gator Booster and a frequent spectator at football, basketball and baseball games. When spring arrived, she was quick to begin her yard work. She loved trimming and maintaining her beautiful plants and shrubbery. Lindas happiest moments were those as a mother to Michael. She spent many hours at T-ball, little league and Vanguard band activities. Her love of him extended to his family and two precious grandsons, Matthew and Carter. Spending vacations in the Great Smoky Mountains was a favorite event. She had fond memories of times there as a little girl, as a young mother and as a grandparent. Family time on Jonathan Creek was special to her. The car trips through the scenic mountains never ceased to excite her, and no matter the season or the number of previous trips, she loved the drive. She often saw former students around town, and she would recall fun classroom experiences with them. Over the years she received many cards and notes from now grown elementary students. Some she had taught 30 or more years ago. Dean Harding wrote to her, I am so thankful my life was molded and formed by such a wonderful person, and I know you made a positive impact in the lives of thousands of other students. Also, I thank God that you were my teacher and helped make me the person that I am today. Others recalled how she made them feel special. She was the special one warm, caring, loving. As her students often recited from Kiplings If, And so hold on when there is nothing in you except the Will which says to them: Hold on! Her strength through this difcult time has been an inspiration to all of us. She will be missed. Survivors include her husband, James R. Williams; son, Michael Williams; parents, Walter and Florene Willett; two grandsons; a sister and a niece. Services were held at First Baptist Church of Ocala, where Linda was a long-time member, Sunday, June 9, 2013, at 2 p.m. Donations in her name may be made to Hospice of Marion County or American Cancer Society Florida Division.Wilma L. Gainey Ann Sammons Medley, of Jamestown, Dothan, Ala., died early Sunday evening, July 14, 2013, surrounded by her family in a Dothan hospital. She was 73.

The more choices we have the better we like it. Freedom of choice is the cry you hear all around our country these days. Yet, most people do not have the freedom of choice they think they have. Somebody is in uencing the choices they make without them realizing they are being in uenced. That is called marketing. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching television the other night, trying to watch a favorite TV program. Finally, from an end of the room that was not my end came an exasperated sigh. I tried to ignore it, but you know how that works. It was in the middle of some commercials, and so I turned to her and said, Whats got you in such pain tonight? These commercials, she moaned so painfully. I cant stand all these commercials! I must say I was a little bummed out about all the commercials myself. I think every one-hour program is devoted to 30 minutes of commercials. Most of those commercials are for things I have no interest in. Or, they are played at a very inappropriate time. It never fails if we are having our supper while watching television there are 79 commercials for diarrhea. Is this really a major problem in our country today? I responded as cheerfully as I could. Well, my dear, somebody has to pay for our television viewing privilege. I felt a cold yet burning stare in my direction. Cant they run those lousy commercials when Im not watching TV? Commercials are a way in which manufacturing companies in uence our choices. I have not done too much research, but the little I have done I discovered the same company makes the same product but sells it under a different name. There are two categories of products. There is the name brand, which costs a fortune. Then there is the generic brand, which is only a fraction of what the name brand cost. It is the same product, made by the same company, but advertised by difference venues. This is where choice comes in. Some people choose the highpriced product because they think it is better. Some of us choose the low-price product because we know better. One night, it seemed most of the commercials had to do with dieting of some kind. There were high calorie diets, low-carb diets and diets that really did not make sense to me. Those of us who are on the husband side of the marital equation know we do not make our own choices. Our choices are made for us by our better half. Why do you think we get married? My wife is a great one for fruit and vegetables. Every day of our life is fruit and vegetables. To mix things up a little bit, one day it will be vegetables and fruit. She prepares the fruit and then invites me to make a choice. I am sure she did not see all of this in any television commercial; at least I hope she hasnt. She is proud of the display of fruit choices she has for me. She is also concerned about my diet much more than I am. I choose to be a little more cavalier when it comes to dieting. Actually, and do not tell her I said this, but my fruit of choice is the humble apple fritter. It has everything my heart desires and a few things my body desires, too. I like with David said, Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart (Psalms 37:4 KJV). It is all a matter of choice that is, making the right choice. The Rev.

What saved us from some heavy ooding was that there was not that much rain in the northern part of the county, said Stafford. Along with us, Bay, Walton and Washington Counties were hit pretty hard. Stafford explained that in order for Florida to declare a State of Emergency there has to be a total of $26 million in damage to Florida. I dont think its going to be that hard to reach that amount, said Stafford. For Holmes County the damage assessment is $680,000 and rising because all of our assessments arent done yet; there was $15 million dollars worth of damage in Washington County and if you add the damage done in Vernon alone the damage is up to $19 million. I think the addition of the damage done in Bay County will more than put us over the required $26 million, though we still have to have the president sign a Federal State of Emergency for Florida before we can get nancial help. She said they are still assessing damages in Holmes County, adding that it was safe to assume, like Washington County, all dirt roads were affected. All of our roads are needing grading, shaping and ditches cleared, said Stafford.

Swartz, a fourth-grader at Bonifay Elementary School, has recently received a perfect 5 on his FCAT. Math is the easiest subject in all of the whole school, said Swartz. 25 percent is because of my family and 75 percent is because I helped myself. Swartz said that when he grows up he wants to be in the Army to ride some tanks. Schools harder for him because of his Attention De cit Hyperactivity Disorder, said his father, Michael Swartz. His mind moves faster then he can speak. A big problem is focusing; even the slightest thing as a y buzzing in a room can distract him. Michael Swartz said that his What it means to be an Army RangerBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Retired Army Ranger Danny David told of the trials, tribulations, triumphs and of the progress and importance of the United States Army Rangers during the Bonifay Kiwanis Clubs July 10 meeting. David began with a video captured by his sons helmet camera during his tour of Afghanistan. The only way you can get a feel for what they do is by seeing it with your own eyes, explained David. As you can see they are checking where they walk because there are land mines. Six months before he went to Afghanistan he was in ranger school; hes only 23 years old. He said that the Army Rangers rst formed during the early days of America. Before that we had the organized battle tactics of the Europeans with bright uniforms and well formed front lines for straight-forward battles, said David. By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The main topic of discussion at the Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundations July 12 meeting was preparations for selling the old hospital and possible new locations for their annual and most pro table fundraiser, the Haunted Hospital. We need to advertise it in the newspaper and take bids after the appraisal, said JoAnn Baker, Administrator at Doctors Memorial Hospital. There are two very interested companies already. After a long discussion about possible locations for the new Haunted Hospital, Brenda Blitch, director of Patient and Public Affairs, asked that all board members do some research into the matter and then bring it before the board at their next meeting. Weve got at least another month before we need to start making a decision, said Blitch. Last year we didnt even start with the preparations until the end of August. If it wasnt such a good fund raiser Id say forget it. Blitch also informed the board that the summer was without public events. Were focusing on online employee training, Blitch said.

I think it shows him what he can do when he applies himself, said his dad. First he won rst place in this years science fair and now a perfect score in Math in FCAT. I think this is a super way to end his fourth grade career. Michael Swartz also wanted to give credit to his teachers for their extra time and attention in helping his son. He is a super star in Math with a deep desire to problem solve, said his teacher, Heather Rich. Hes very inquisitive with a unique way of solving math problems. Hes done a wonderful job and I am so very proud of him.

ItsAppreciationTimeat Locals PASSESOFFEREXPIRES8/31/2013 Their encounters with the Indians made that useless with their camouaged attacks and ambushes. Thats when Rogers Rangers started the Rangers, using the discipline of the Europeans with the tactical maneuvers of the Indians. During World War II, he said William Darby modernized the Rangers creating an elite group to be the spearhead of United States Army in tactical combat, with their training being extremely strenuous and often dangerous. If you see someone with a Ranger badge, that means theyve been through some stuff, said David. They know what its like to be hungry. He said 85 percent of their work is done at night and work in teams of ve to six men. One of the missions my son went on was to recover four vehicles that were ambushed and ended up in a reght that lasted eight hours, said David. No one on his team was injured, thank God, and eight enemy soldiers were killed. After he was done speaking someone in the audience asked the difference between the Army Rangers and the Green Berets. Theyre trained for specialized foreign tactics, like raids and training, said David. He was also asked the difference between Army Rangers and Navy SEALs. Theyre really a surgical strike team that are trained at the ocean and tortured for weeks, said David. We affectionately call them World Class Athletes with Guns. Theyre the ones that if you were being held hostage they can ambush a place and kill everyone that needed to be killed and leave those that need to be alive, alive; its far more surgical with them. RaANGErR from page A1it went well. The men came out and worked through the holiday. The board approved Staffords request to use the county engineers to accompany Federal Emergency Management Agency agents if the government approves of funding. Commissioner David Whitaker voiced his concerns about a local resident whose residential area was ooded with dirt from a county maintained road where a culvert was clogged and with the recent rain washed the road into her yard. I know its a private area but its our fault that the road emptied into her yard, said Whitaker. I think it is our responsibility. We need to x it. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said that under a state of emergency they had more exibility. These are unusual circumstances, said Goodman. Thats why a state of emergency is in place; for exibility. This is about the health, safety and well being of the citizens and we shouldnt not help because of the policy. After much discussion the board agreed that as long as the county was under a State of Emergency then they would extend help to those in need. County Engineers Cliff Knauer and Whitney Nelson assured the board that they were available to help in developing a list of driveways in desperate need of repair. Commissioner Bill Parish asked Goodman if any employee was able to refuse to work overtime. During those days when we needed workers the most we had quite a few that were refusing to answer their phones, failed to return phone calls and even had their phones turned off, said Parish. We even had some road foremen who didnt go out until a commissioner called them out. I think they should know that after a rain like we had theyre going to need to be out there with every able body they can to x it. Goodman conrmed that it is in their right to require their employees to work overtime and to be on standby for their services to be rendered. Commissioner Bobby Sasnett also asked for a recommendation of action for those roads with deep cracks. When that water seeps in and settles in the foundation all that trafc is going to just bust it loose, said Sasnet. Nelson recommended a crack sealant used often in Jackson County. It wont x the problem but it will prolong the life of the road by protecting the base from moisture, said Nelson. Ill come to the next board meeting with a price quote, but if I remember correctly, its fairly cheap. The board discussed the upcoming Solid Waste Franchise Agreement Renewals. Nows the time for questions, comments and concerns, said Williams. Weve been having some issues with trash being strewn all over Gods green earth because of an open ended trash truck. Were getting a lot of oops, that wasnt us, and when we prove it we get a lot of oops, well never do it again and Im sick of it. Goodman said that the real question was if they wanted to keep the multiple franchise agreement. Do you want to spend the money and man power to keep up with a multiple franchise agreement? asked Goodman. Thats a lot of time and manpower to keep up with everyones status, like proof of insurance. Also if you do keep the multiple franchise agreement youll have to look into health standards, putting teeth in your agreement to make sure these franchises are living up to their end of the bargain and a possible bond just in case they dont so you can protect those citizens who are paying for these services. The board agreed to hold a workshop to discuss what should be done with the Solid Waste Franchise Agreement. The board also agreed to allow Knauer to look into how much it would cost to put a mesh trap at the Holmes County Correctional Institutes sewer line because Commissioner Parish had informed them that the City of Bonifay was in straits with items being dragged from the institutes sewer line into the Waste Water Treatment Facility, getting stuck in pumps and burning the motors. We can put in a screen to lter those items for a decent price and just have the inmates clean it out on a daily basis, said Knauer. Board approved of a resolution against illegal immigration with a vote of 4 to 1, with Parish voting no. People who enter the United States illegally should not receive any benets from American taxpayers, read Williams. All United States boards should be totally secured and 100 percent veried and any person in the U.S. illegally should receive no amnesty. I wholeheartedly agree.

The first part of the Florida Legislatures study on the impact of gaming in the state was released on July 1, and the results were about as predictable as standing on 20. The lottery is very healthy. The horses and dogs are not. The Legislature commissioned New Jersey-based Spectrum Gaming Group to conduct at $400,000 examination of gambling in Florida and provide lawmakers with objective data when they consider comprehensive gaming legislation next year. Part 1, released on July 1, looks at the history and current state of gambling. Part 2, due in October, will assess potential changes and economic effects on communities. Thats likely to fuel the most controversy, although the study itself will not make policy recommendations. Part 1 laid out the current landscape, finding that the lottery set a record in fiscal year 2011-12 with sales of $4.45 billion, up 11 percent from the previous year. That puts Florida third nationally in total sales revenue, behind New York and Massachusetts. That jibes with the eyeball test of the lines at Florida Lottery stations in convenience stores and supermarkets. Pari-mutuels are going the opposite direction, and have been for some time. Once a cornerstone of the states gaming industry, greyhound and thoroughbred racing seem more like a throwback to the Cold War era. In the last 20 years, the amount wagered on dog racing has fallen 67 percent, and attendance at horse tracks has fallen a staggering 85 percent. Jai-alai, the other primary pari-mutuel, has all but disappeared in South Florida, suffering a 99.7 percent decline over the same period. Because of state regulations, though, greyhound tracks are still required to conduct a certain number of races each season if they want to supplement their revenues by offering other forms of gambling, such as poker rooms. Those have proved to be quite popular. But its ridiculous to force dogs to race for declining crowds when people merely want to play cards. Once a track is allowed to operate a poker room, why should it be required also to run greyhounds? Ebro Greyhound Park is caught in Tallahassees contradictory confusion about gaming. Waiting for the sequel IN OUR VIEWThe Prattler does not have his good friend and former fellow employee at the county courthouse, Lois Ruth Hardin, to keep him in check when inclined to write excessively on one subject. I felt her presence when it occurred to me that I was staying on the same topic when approaching the column for this week. Early in my experience in writing Perrys Prattle, the subject matter continued the same for three articles concerning a visit to the Florida Legislative session. This ladys kind admonition was: Just how many articles can you write on one visit to Tallahassee? The answer was no more than three or four. Other topics were soon explored! This is on my mind today as last months watermelon festival, and the resulting experiences, seem to before my face as the weeks narrative is approached. Before I leave the reference to Aunt Lois, as we affectionately referred to her in the courthouse, she was the lady who designed the colorful and eye catching watermelon festival stationery, which is still in use. In former times, our stationery was merely reprinted by Xerox machine each year with it losing much of its quality every time it was copied. This outspoken lady bravely asked me, as chairman, if I didnt think it was time to improve the quality of the much used letterhead format for the annual festival. I readily agreed and assigned the task to her. The new and improved trademark stationery was soon a reality and is still proudly in use. Last week, mention was made of the writers involvement in delivering the prize watermelons, which is a good way to have some quality time with my grandsons as well as make meaningful visits with those who have supported the festival down through the years. One such visit was with the Bill and Sybil Webb family, longtime strong supporters of the watermelon festival. In their home was their son, Wade, who gave me some valuable pointers on resurrecting some old 8-track music. We also had conversations with their daughters, Carla and Jessica, who were visiting from their LaGrange, Ga., home. Our time in the Webb home was extended longer than expected as one of the powerful heavy showers blew in during our time there. We had to compete with the rain beating on the sky lights in the spacious den of the Webb home. Young Jessica was an interesting conversationalist and had many questions for the writer, especially as she began to learn of the many careers he has enjoyed. One of those experiences of the past include almost all of my U. S. Army time being spent in Fort Lewis, Washington in 1946-47. Bill Webb had told me of Carlas son, Jonathan, being presently stationed in the state of Washington at the military installation, now PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Lois Ruth Hardin, shown in the funeral program at the time of her death, Feb. 15, 2008.Hardin keeps the Prattler in check I often write about old businesses, but I always like to know about new businesses in town. Two young ladies have started businesses recently that add choices for shopping at home. Though both are called boutiques, their business styles vary widely. The most recent one is called Southern Comfort and the proprietor is Shanta Sapp who graduated from Ponce de Leon High School in 1999 and from FSU. Her husband Jeremy Sapp is in the logging business, with his father, here in the county. The couple has two boys in the rst and third grades at Bonifay Elementary. Shanta wanted to have work in Bonifay so that she would be nearby should the school need to call her. She previously had a business in Chipley but since both her mother and grandmother died last year she had no one to call if there was an emergency at school. Thus the idea was born to start a business in Bonifay. Perhaps the most unique feature of the business the location. It is at 405 E. Evans Ave, in a house many of us old timers will remember as the Newsome home, the house Maebell Newsome Chesnut grew up in. Each room houses a different collection. The front room features a wall of costume jewelry in a color to match any out t. There are also candles by Rewind that are in cut off wine bottles. They are avored like the bottle and are made in Charleston, S.C. Shanta buys American made products when at all possible. Another room holds baby gifts and clothing. A line of smocked baby clothes are featured. She is looking for a local person who might supply the shop with smocked children clothes. In the former dining room are many gifts suitable for the bride. Monograming is available and a massive display of monogrammed wreaths are available for decorating the home. Some brides are also using them as decorations for their weddings. Bath and Body products from Farm House, all natural products, are housed in this room. A former bedroom holds the ready-to-wear with more modest styles to choose from than some boutiques. Ollie Maes, operated by Jacqueline Don Sims, has been in business for one year and is experiencing a lot of success. She also reaches back into history for the basis for her business. The name comes from her great-great-grandmother, Ollie Mae Pilcher Rogers, and some of her display furniture is handed down. A clothes press New boutiques cater to young at heart HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison See OUR VIEW A5 See PRATTLE A5Dear Editor, In 2008 the voters of Florida over whelming approved a measure de ning marriage as between one man and one woman. Its been reported that due to the ve U.S. Supreme Court Justices disagreeing with that de nition, the ballot in 2014 may contain language seeking to overturn that de nition. The approved de nition agrees one hundred percent with what the Supreme Judge God state many times in the Holy Bible, his book of laws. Leave correct de nition as it is.Dick BashtBonifay Dear Editor, I am much concerned about the new gun laws that our President and Congress are trying to pass at this time and their infringement upon the second amendment rights given to citizen to keep and bear arms. I ask myself, what would have happened if such laws had been in effect when our forefathers fought for our independence from England? We would have lost that war and maybe never won our independence. How about the War of 1812 when the British tried to put us back under their rule? Much of the ghting in these wars was done by civilians with their guns. Not long after the Second World War ended, I watched a documentary on television in which a high ranking Japanese of cer was being interviewed. The date, station and name of of cer being interviewed are not remembered, but I do recall a question asked, Why didnt the Japanese invade the west coast of the United States right after Pearl Harbor? His answer was something similar to this, that they knew that our military was weak, but we also knew that nearly every home in the United States had guns, ri es, pistols, shotguns, and the like and we couldnt maintain a force there in the face of this. Your people would have killed too many of our soldiers. The United Nations and many foreign countries are putting pressure on the United States to disarm our people, but I believe that one of the best ways to secure our country is to have an armed civilization against outside and inside enemies who try to take over our country. I feel very deeply for the people who have been killed and their families and know that something must be done, but let us not take all the guns away from the people. Wise men wrote the second amendment to the Constitution and we need to keep it for our own future safety.Malcolm RobertsSpanish Fort, Ala.

However, that plan was put on hold indefinitely when Attorney General Pam Bondi quickly issued an opinion that the Legislature must first approve any countywide referendum before its voted on locally. The other option is to amend the state Constitution. The Legislature needs to differentiate among the different gaming issues, such as expanding existing operations vs. bringing gambling into new areas, giving groups monopolies on some forms of gaming and treating some forms of gambling as acceptable but others like they were the devils den. The gaming study sequel should prove to be more engaging than the original. known as Joint Base Lewis-McChord. In my time there, the two military bases were two separate units. As we continued on our journey of delivering prize melons, weaving in and out among the heavy trafc in the town, we made our stop at KFC, after having talked with the manager in the bank, Sylvia Brown Wright, and received a glowing comment on her continued enjoyment of reading Perrys Prattle. We did not see Sylvia at the restaurant, but the employees there accepted the watermelon with much glee, with the grandsons predicting that it may not survive long enough for the manager who have her share. Other compliments regarding the Prattle, received on the on our travels, came from Marvis Jett, who has told me often that she is a regular reader of the column. She informed me that I would be receiving a formal invitation to the Roulhac School Reunion scheduled for July 19, an event I hope to attend. Our delivery schedule took us to the home of Dr. James Craven where we were greeted by Martha Toole, who worked in the medical practice for Dr. Craven for more than 30 years. She is now assisting in his care, as are others, as he convalesces in his home. Martha greeted the grandsons warmly, stating she knew their respective fathers, and also told us of the importance of reading Perrys Prattle each week, assuring me that Dr. Craven enjoys the writings also. It is always a joy to deliver a prize watermelon to Jeanette Townsend, who continues to support the festival as her husband, Lamar Townsend did. Her melon arrived just as a torrential downpour slacked long enough for it to be handed to her by way of the garage. The threesome of Perry, Dan and Perry II, picked our time between the rain, and delivered 34 of the very best watermelons to the faithful purchasers in Chipley and Bonifay, who can be relied upon each year to come forth with their successful bids. None of us complained of the rain, neither did we hear any complaints from others. Judge Colby Peels Judicial Assistant, Lora Fisher, also is actively involved, along with the judge, in the many duties of the annual event. She told of seeing my crew about town as we carefully followed our planned route, delivering the melons. I did confess to her that the driver made a couple of driving boo-boos, prompting grandson, Dan, to ask: Granddaddy, do you want me to drive? My reply was: No, You will scare me more than I am scaring you. Somewhere in my travels that week, Virginia Teel Moore, a Holmes County Native, now living in Chipley, was encountered. She reiterated her faithfulness in reading my weekly narratives and also extended a compliment on my sister Hazels Happy Corner, which also appears in the Washington County News, along with my Prattle. Surely next weeks article will take a different direction away from the watermelon festival. If not, Sarah Franklin and Joyce Odom, nieces of Lois Ruth Hardin, will remind me of the admonition of their aunt so many years ago. PRATTLE from page A4 HAPPY from page A4made by her great greatgrandfather Pilcher serves as a display case. When asked what motivated the opening of her shop, Jacqueline, a former Miss Holmes County, said that she, her mother Tammy, and her grandmother, Jackie Middlebrooks all loved to shop. Also, after graduating from Holmes County High and Florida State University, she was unable to find a position to teach history, so grandfather Joe Middlebrooks hired her to keep the Middlebrooks Plumbing and Equipment Rental open. Since there was lots of room in the building located on Highway 90, it was a perfect place to put her fashion sense to work. Her hours are from 7 a.m. till 4 p.m. The plumbing business phone starts ringing at that early hour and she is there. Saturday hours are flexible. (you can call her at 326-3161 or 547-3658) In addition to clothes for the 18 to 35 year olds, she carries some lingerie and an extensive line of jewelry, both costume and the Mahlon Grace line which compares with Sorelli. Hand crocheted baby clothes as well as unique head bands are made by Sonja Miller Prescot. Jacqueline is married to Jamie Sims, son of Eddie and Suzanne Sims. He is a HCHS and Florida State graduate and is manager of Sun Trust in Panama City. Another beauty queen, the former Miss Bonifay Chelsea Cullifer, the daughter of Mike and Kim Carroll Cullifer is Jacqulines able assistant and model. They also conduct classes for girls in the pageant circuit. Recently, our granddaughter, Haley Webb, a student at Abraham Baldwin College in Tifton, Ga., was here. She was looking for a dress in a specific color to wear in a sorority sisters wedding. After a futile search in Dothan, we dropped in to Ollie Maes. Within 20 minutes, shed found the perfect dress and the ear rings to match. Welcome to Southern Comfort and Ollie Maes as they join Fashion Frenzy, another boutique shop now located in Docs Market shopping center. We wish you all much success. Thank you for providing the ladies of our community an alternative to out of town shopping. LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, July 17, 2013

By FRANK SARGEANTfranksargeant@charter.net Whether your taste runs to snappers red or gray; groupers red, black or gag; or amberjacks black sea bass and grunts, the heart of the summer is prime time to put some fresh llets on the grill throughout the Florida Panhandle. Red snapper season closed July 14. Mangrove or gray snapper have no closed season, and neither do red or black grouper. The gag grouper season opened June 1 and continues to Dec. 4, and the AJ season is June 1 through July 31. There is no closed season on grunts or black sea bass, smaller sh but just as tasty. Panhandle waters are blessed with a vast assortment of reef sh habitat, both natural and manmade, and any good charting program Navionics makes some of the best can point you toward dozens of likely spots in any seaworthy boat. The Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission also has a complete list of all arti cial reefs, with depths and GPS numbers, at http://myfwc.com/ media/131585/reefs.pdf The bottom of much of the Gulf, out to the edge of the continental shelf, is a gentle slope of fairly smooth sand, and this type of bottom does not make good sh habitat. But here and there outcrops of rock or ledges and holes create refuges for the chain of life to gain a foothold. Bait schools gather on these spots, and the larger predators naturally follow. Placing ships or concrete rubble on bottom gives Nature a jump-start, and these arti cial structures often begin attracting sh within a few days of placement. Some of the man-made reefs are barely three miles off the beach, making them easy to get to in most saltwater-type boats. Others are 20 to 30 miles out. In general, those farther from shore tend to have more and larger sh simply because they are shed less. If you dont have a larger boat 25 feet or more with twin engines is about the safe minimum you can take advantage of the huge party-boat eet at all Panhandle ports to get you to the reefs economically and safely. Sonar and GPS are a must for reef shing, and the new scanning sonars are particularly effective Lowrance, Humminbird, Garmin and others have various models. Basically the GPS gets you on the spot, and the sonar shows you an image of whats there, both in terms of bottom and the sh and bait thats on the structure. Locating a good spot is only half the battle. Anchoring offshore is an art in itself. The trick is to motor up-current (or upwind if current is negligible) far enough so that when you drop anchor you can back down to put the stern of the boat either directly over the structure or just a few yards upcurrent of it. In water 100 feet deep, this requires a big anchor, a big chain lead, and 500 feet of line to provide adequate scope on a breezy day, so its no small investment. Once the boat is properly positioned, its a matter of dropping the right bait down to entice whatever youre after. Gags and black grouper tend to like hand-sized pin sh better than anything, though any sort of live bait sh will do the job. Red snapper readily grab live thread ns or sardines, jumbo shrimp, or fresh squid, and can also be caught on frozen bait sh when theyre in a biting mood. Gray snapper love tiny pin sh or scaled sardines, also big shrimp. Red grouper eat about anything, but take cut bait better than gags. And amberjack which are not really bottom sh but are nearly always found circling around bottom structure are more likely to attack large bait sh like blue runners. (AJs are also suckers for jumbo topwater plugs the big poppers Northeast anglers use for stripers work well, and the louder you work them, the better.) Eat your Wheaties if youre going after greater amberjackthey frequently weigh over 40 pounds and are tremendously powerful sh. Standard reef shing gear is typically a stout 8-foot rod, 3/0 star-drag reel and 60-pound-test mono, with about 3 feet of 80 pound hard mono or uorocarbon leader running to a circle hook, size 4/0 to 8/0 note that circle hooks are required for harvesting reef species. Biologists say the hooks make it less likely sh will swallow the hook, which makes it more likely that undersize sh will survive catch and release. (If you want some of the smaller species like black sea bass and grunts to add to the grill, put down a line or two with 1/0 hooks and a piece of cut sh about the size of a golf ball.) Egg sinker weights from 2 to 8 ounces are used above the swivel connecting running line and leader use plenty to get you to the bottom fast despite current. The groupers are usually caught right on the bottom, or within a yard of it, while snapper tend to stack up in a Christmas tree over the reef, and can often be caught best by cranking up the bait 6 to 10 feet off bottom. Fishing with a circle hook is a different experience for those used to standard J-hooks you dont set the hook by pulling on the rod. Instead, when you feel a bite, you simply reel as fast as you can until the rod doubles overthe hook slides along the shs mouth and catches in the jaw latch, or at least thats the theory in general, it works pretty well. Most of the ght in handling grouper comes in the rst 10 feet. Its a matter of reeling for all you and your tackle can stand until the sh comes up away from the rocks, because most will try to dive back into the cover. If they get there, its game over. But get them coming that rst few yards and things get fairly easy. Bag limits for reef sh, particularly the groupers, are a complex deal best bet is to go to the FWC website at www.myfwc.com and get a print-out of the various combinations of sh allowed, and carry this on the boat to make sure you dont run afoul of the sh police back at the docks. (You can get this on your cellphone, too, but not if youre out of tower range when you need it.) The rules also require you to have aboard a dehooking device and a de ating device to allow air in the stomach of sh brought up from the depths to be released so that they can swim back down when you let them go. Again, the idea is to reduce the release mortality and improve the shery. There are now also some clever weighted depth sled devices that you clip to the shs jaw, send it back down deep, and then get an auto-release of the pre-set clip. The sh, back at its usual pressure, de ates and goes on its way; www. theseaqualizer.com FlatlinersIt often pays to put out a few at lines or unweighted lines with live bait sh in summer shing around the reefs. King mackerel, some leftover cobia, Spanish mackerel and even an occasional dolphin or sail sh are likely to come along and grab a blue runner or a big thread n swimming around back there in the current. A conventional reel setup works OK for this, but a big offshore spinning rig with 50-pound-test braid is better suited to the task. Just make sure the reel holds 300 yards or more of line, because if you stick a jumbo king mackerel while youre anchored, youre going to need it. It often helps the production of the y line if you hang a couple of bags of chopped bait sh chum off the transom. The slick the chum creates will draw sh in from hundreds of yards down-current. Youre likely to see a cloud of gray snapper coming up into the chum off the reef, as well, and you can catch these guys on unweighted pieces of cut bait allowed to slowly free-fall down into their feeding zone. Bring along a lighter spinning rig with 15-poundtest braid for this duty, and use smaller circle hooks.Heat up the grillAll of the reef species are delicious on the table, and all can be prepared the same: Simply llet, strip off the skin, sprinkle on a bit of teriyaki sauce and toss them on a hot grill. They cook in minutes never overcook the reef shes because theyre at their tasty best when just done. A squeeze of freshcut lemon and maybe a drizzle of soft margarine completes the dish. Everybody will want seconds when you whip up a summer mixed grill.

JOHN PAIVA | Special to HalifaxGag grouper like this one are a popular summer target on the reefs, particularly in the waters southeast of the Panhandle. Live pin sh are among the top baits. Summer offers a cornucopia of tasty reef species FRANK SARGEANT | Special to HalifaxKing mackerel frequently roam the waters above the reefs, and can readily be caught on at lines equipped with a live blue runner.Live bait should be no problem to hookI know there are only two weeks left to snapper sh, but if you dont catch any its not because there is no bait. Pilchards have infested the bay. If you own a cast net and know how to throw it, your livewell should be full when you leave the pass. It seems any shoreline in two feet of water or less is covered up in schools of bait. On Monday, all you needed was some patience and a cast net and you would have more bait than you could use. After all, two snappers are all you are allowed and you shouldnt need two dozen pilchards to catch two. If you dont know how to throw a net there is always the bait boat waiting at the mouth of the pass and they (there are two of them) have all the bait you would ever need to catch a limit of snapper or grouper. The difference between live bait and cut cigar minnows is like night and day. Before I had pilchards, I might spend an hour trying to get red snapper to eat, but last Monday with live bait it only took a short time to ll the box and go off looking for something else. It used to be when a boat pulled up on a spot everyone would rst sh with dead bait. After that got old, and no one was getting any bites they would switch over to live bait. If you started out with live bait and they stopped biting, then there was little use to drop dead bait down because they just didnt prefer dead bait to live bait. If the Gulf ever calms down, and it doesnt seem it will, there is the possibility of running the beach in less than 20 feet of depth and spotting schools of cigar minnows or herring and catching them for bait. You should have a live well with enough water circulation because several dozen herring breathe up massive amounts of oxygen in a short time. The snapper are out there and the bait is accessible, so there is no reason to not catch a limit unless the weather turns bad.

SPORTS ASectionBy PAT McCANNNews Herald Executive Sports Editor Keith Baker doesnt need to have the good old days of Bay County youth baseball mapped out and explained to him. The Panama City director of Leisure Services lived them. Baker played in the Florida Little Major League system during the late 1970s and early 1980s. He graduated to Junior Major League, then Senior, and moved on to Rutherford High School and American Legion Post 66, then ultimately college baseball. The youth baseball system Baker experienced here where basically every community within the county offered youth baseball no longer exists. Panama City is responsible for maintaining ve baseball elds, but they often sit idle. City-maintained ballparks include Frank Nelson Park on 23rd Street, Sudduth Park in the Cove neighborhood, Daf n Park in Millville, Oak Grove off 17th Street and Woods Field behind Gulf Power. Mostly, the city mows the elds as they otherwise sit dormant throughout the year, except for teams from the Jackson E. Jones league. That organization also has suffered from lower participation numbers, but did have four T-ball teams play at Woods Field, an age 13-14 team at Oak Grove and a 15-16 team at Daf n Park. Baker would like to see leagues ourish within the city, but also realizes participation numbers in youth baseball have been in decline for a number of years. I would de nitely say they are, there are so many factors, Baker said. Kids would rather stay inside; theres more inside opportunities, especially in the gaming world. To attract some of them back to the game, or simply provide a chance to play for those who might not want to travel to other communities to participate, Baker believes the model to follow is the one supplied by Lynn Haven and Panama City Beach. Those two communities have all youth recreational baseball and softball come under the auspices of the park and recreation department, and dont rely on parents to form leagues and provide a board of directors to ensure longevity. Places like Lynn Haven, they control the environment there, they have city staff that coordinates the program from A to Z, Baker said. They nd coaches, sponsors, buy uniforms, provide umpires, scheduling. When little Johnny or Lori comes in and pays $50 theyre ready to play. That so much easier to do versus trying to corral a bunch of people. And the moms and dads dont have to work in concession stands. Theres no fundraising. The Beach has a very good league, too. Baker is hopeful that Panama City can again have an active role in providing opportunities in both baseball and softball. With facilities already available what is lacking is the necessary funding to provide staff to fully utilize the opportunity. Baker said one of his ultimate goals is to begin, then oversee that process. Thats the direction were planning on heading eventually, he said. I think there is a need for that in our parks. A lot of kids otherwise may not have an opportunity to play. They cant travel to get there (where leagues currently exist) or dont have the money or resources. There is a need for programming. What exists now is the city playing the role of facilitator. It offers the facility and keeps it playable. If parents or adult organizers dont band together and pave the way for a new league, the aforementioned ballparks remain idle. The day of moms and dads coming together and putting together an administration are almost over, everything else has gone to programming, Baker said. Back in the day, and as recent as the mid to late 1990s pretty much everything was run by the local citizens. That style format went on for years, and then a combination of things came into play. You had select teams, then travel teams and it reshaped the way things worked and the way they are now. Travel teams went into everyones programs and started cherrypicking (elite players) and each league started to fall, fall, fall. As a result, a quaint and scenic venue such as Sudduth Ballpark is more representative of the past than the present. Its shameful theres not a league there anymore, Baker said. Its sad to see that little eld not be what it used to be. Thats a true neighborhood ballpark. While Panama City does have ve elds to offer, one potential drawback compared to the other areas where kids currently participate, namely Lynn Haven, Panama City Beach and Callaway, is that it does not have a large complex of elds that serves as the focal point for youth activity. Baker is quick to return to programming as the answer for future commitment by the city. In a nutshell, I would agree that times have changed, he said. As the surroundings change, people in my position have to realize the different challenges and dynamics and adapt around it. We have to come up with ways that guarantee the existence for future generations. Im always passionate about this issue, but at the same time dont want to negatively impact the current leagues in other communities.UMPIRE SHORTAGEIf, in the future more kids are attracted to youth baseball and softball the next looming obstacle could be a shortage of umpires to of ciate the games. Greg Klanjac has been umpiring in Bay County for 23 years and is a member of Bay Area Of cials, one of a handful of groups here that provide umpiring for differing levels of baseball and softball. When I started I used to handle all the local leagues, Klanjac said. We had 12 to 13 different leagues you could work Monday through Saturday if you wanted to call a game every day. He doesnt work the youth level any more, but said he is cognizant of venues that once were home to thriving leagues now converted for youth soccer participation. (Youth baseball) is real competitive, more intense than high school, Klanjac said. Everybody is right there on top of you. The fence is so close if people are whispering youre hearing it. I started in Little League and worked my way up to (high school) junior varsity and then varsity, Klanjac said. Each one was a big step. Little League was where you used to learn the rules, and everything that can happen, happens in those games. And the dads would question everything. Its a lot easier to call college ball. But umpires are dying off, too. With less kids playing theres more people who dont want to get involved. If you dont recruit young talent eventually its going to die off. Klanjac said that his group once had as many as 35-40 members, but currently numbers closer to 20. Kids dont want to get into it, plus youre getting out there in the heat, Klanjac said. A lot of times now you have to break in doing high school. With no Little League going on they have to cut their teeth on JV. Umpire fees escalate by level of competition called. Some standard fees for youth baseball are $40-45, with $55 for high school and as high as $150 for Panhandle Conference games for junior colleges. Eddie Kemp is a member of Gulf Coast Of cials and echoed Klanjacs concerns about a numbers shortage. Kemp said his group had about 40 members when he started and recently built back up to 26. Its a combination of things with newer of cials, said Kemp, who has of ciated games here for 17 years. Not wanting to face a coach who might be unsportsmanlike. And its miserably hot out there. Its really hard to recruit younger ones. Kemp said his group starts meeting in November for the upcoming season. He said the current culture of abusive fans and antipathy toward authority gures also impacts the process. It wasnt long ago that a soccer of cial in Utah was killed when attacked by a young player, and of cials in sports such as football and hockey have experienced dif culty with overzealous parents in some parts of the country. It reached the point in one Chicago suburb that signs are posted at all ballparks in the district with the message: This is a game being played by children. If they win or lose every game of the season it will not impact what college they attend or their future potential income. Kemp encourages interested citizens to get involved, however, and invites them to the gcof cials.com website or to call him at 2711782 if they are interested in of ciating any sport, not just baseball or softball. Andy Chizmar is a veteran member of Bay Area Of cials Association. Its not so much less opportunities, you always have games, Chizmar said. Most leagues with the younger kids still have a lot of participation, but the 12 and up is where youre seeing the decrease. The decrease has been just as severe in his organization. Oh man, its dropped off so bad, Chizmar said. We only have 16 umpires to try to cover everything. Sometimes were pulling umpires from everywhere. Really, with the economy the way it is you can make some decent money so you think people would be interested. But the last couple of times weve advertised we havent had anybody come to the meetings. The other thing is kids have changed. It used to be you didnt have kids talk back to you. And Ive had to call police two or three times to a ballpark when parents became unruly. Part III looks deeper into the travel ball baseball commitment. enewCollegeofAppliedStudiesatFSUPanamaCitywasapprovedbytheFSUBoard ofTrusteesinJune2010andallowsthecampustomoreeasilyrespondtoworkforceneeds inourarea.WeinviteyoutosupporteCampaignforOurCommunitysUniversityby helpingusbuildanendowmentfortomorrowsjobs.Ourgoalistoestablisha$5million endowmentfortheCollegeofAppliedStudiesby2017,whichwillallowFSUPanama Citytoestablishstudentscholarships,implementnewdegreeprogramsandprovidenew equipmentandtechnology.

Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser BPAGE 1Section EXTRATrivia FunWilson CaseyWC@Trivia Guy.com FIRST PLACERED TEAMSECOND PLACEYELLOW TEAMTHIRD PLACEPURPLE TEAMSpecial to ExtraCHIPLEY The second annual Rockin Robotics Camp was another huge success. Although the camp was extended from four to ve days, the most repeated comment in the student evaluations was, more days, more programs, more, more, more! The camp was made possible by grant funding from AT&T Florida and coordinated by the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations. The WHTC Foundation applied for the grant to create STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) hands-on experiences for the campers. Seventhand eighth-grade students learned to analyze and solve problems utilizing engineering design processes, which will help develop their math and science skills. Student teams designed, built and programmed their robots for competition against other teams in an exciting, nontraditional environment. Problem-solving, real-world applications and critical thinking skills were the key elements of the project. The camp also helped students to develop interpersonal skills such as communications, teamwork, leadership and project management. The camp also was fortunate to have Rocket Guy John Hansel join them for the rst day of the camp. Hansel is a retired supervisory electronics engineer who spent 32 years at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Panama City. He is a senior member of the National Association of Rocketry and is a Level 3 Certi cation Committee associate for high powered rocketry. Rocket Guy introduced the class to the scienti c foundations of rocketry, then allowed them to build their own rockets, which they launched that afternoon using water and air pressure. The camp staff included camp coordinator Stephanie Halley, drafting instructor Tanya Taylor and seven mentors from Taylors Drafting Program: Breaden Cooper, Jimmy Taylor, Bubba Davis, Anthony Smith, Bradley Goodson, Lisa Keen and Stanton Guthrie. The mentors provided guidance to the campers but allowed them the independence to create, develop and program the robots as a team. The teams learned about gear ratios, locomotion and energy as they constructed and programmed their robots using the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT robotics kit. The mentors also assisted each student in creating some simple computer-aided drafting designs to show them the association between design and construction. The highlight of the camp was the ultimate challenge as teams competed by putting their robots through a series of tracks, turns and missions, each of which had to be individually programmed into the robots MIND Blocks. We were so creative and focused and very determined to make their robots perform perfectly, said Martha Compton, WHTC director, who was the inspiration behind the robotics camp. The RED Team, which was small in numbers but strong in brain power, took rst place in the competition. The team included Stephen Chosmos and Bobby Holmes with Bradley Goodson as their mentor. Team Yellow, which placed second, included Jake Whitehead, Briton Watson, Klaytin Hendrix and Dylan Rudd with mentor Bubba Davis. The third-place winners, Team Purple, were Kaci Compton, Jaqueline Stewart, Olivia Cotton and Jillian Hales with Anthony Smith and Lisa Keen as their mentors. WHTC and the Rockin Robots campers would also like to thank Capital City Bank, Community South Credit Union, Gene Halley, the WHTC Foundation, WHTC, the Chipley Fire Department (Floyd Aycock) and the WHTC electrician instructor for sponsoring and arranging camp lunches, cookouts and water activities. Also a big thank you to the competition judges, Bill Howell of Atkins Global and Jonathan Webb of the Florida Department of Transportation. All of the students said they would return to another camp in the future and frequently commented, It was fun, and I learned a lot!Mentors Anthony Smith and Lisa Keen, and, from left, Jillian Hales, Lisa Keen, Olivia Cotton, Anthony Smith, Jaqueline Stewart and Kaci Compton.Trivia Fun with Wilson Casey, Guinness World Record Holder from Woodruff, S.C., is published in more than 500 newspapers across the country and is a weekly feature in The Washington County News and The Holmes County Times-Advertiser. 1) Whose quotes included, Chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice?

Born in Pensacola 67 years ago, she attended elementary and high school in Holmes County and married her sweetheart, Jimmy Williams. They were married 47 years. A University of Florida College of Education graduate, Linda did her intern teaching at Wyomina Park Elementary, began her career at Oakcrest and then moved to Ocala Springs when it opened 26 years ago. Of her 35 years as a teacher, 34 were in Marion County. A member of the Marion Education Association, she retired in 2003. Linda continued to follow her Gators as an Alumni Association member, a Gator Booster and a frequent spectator at football, basketball and baseball games. When spring arrived, she was quick to begin her yard work. She loved trimming and maintaining her beautiful plants and shrubbery. Lindas happiest moments were those as a mother to Michael. She spent many hours at T-ball, little league and Vanguard band activities. Her love of him extended to his family and two precious grandsons, Matthew and Carter. Spending vacations in the Great Smoky Mountains was a favorite event. She had fond memories of times there as a little girl, as a young mother and as a grandparent. Family time on Jonathan Creek was special to her. The car trips through the scenic mountains never ceased to excite her, and no matter the season or the number of previous trips, she loved the drive. She often saw former students around town, and she would recall fun classroom experiences with them. Over the years she received many cards and notes from now grown elementary students. Some she had taught 30 or more years ago. Dean Harding wrote to her, I am so thankful my life was molded and formed by such a wonderful person, and I know you made a positive impact in the lives of thousands of other students. Also, I thank God that you were my teacher and helped make me the person that I am today. Others recalled how she made them feel special. She was the special one warm, caring, loving. As her students often recited from Kiplings If, And so hold on when there is nothing in you except the Will which says to them: Hold on! Her strength through this difcult time has been an inspiration to all of us. She will be missed. Survivors include her husband, James R. Williams; son, Michael Williams; parents, Walter and Florene Willett; two grandsons; a sister and a niece. Services were held at First Baptist Church of Ocala, where Linda was a long-time member, Sunday, June 9, 2013, at 2 p.m. Donations in her name may be made to Hospice of Marion County or American Cancer Society Florida Division.Wilma LL.

The more choices we have the better we like it. Freedom of choice is the cry you hear all around our country these days. Yet, most people do not have the freedom of choice they think they have. Somebody is in uencing the choices they make without them realizing they are being in uenced. That is called marketing. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching television the other night, trying to watch a favorite TV program. Finally, from an end of the room that was not my end came an exasperated sigh. I tried to ignore it, but you know how that works. It was in the middle of some commercials, and so I turned to her and said, Whats got you in such pain tonight? These commercials, she moaned so painfully. I cant stand all these commercials! I must say I was a little bummed out about all the commercials myself. I think every one-hour program is devoted to 30 minutes of commercials. Most of those commercials are for things I have no interest in. Or, they are played at a very inappropriate time. It never fails if we are having our supper while watching television there are 79 commercials for diarrhea. Is this really a major problem in our country today? I responded as cheerfully as I could. Well, my dear, somebody has to pay for our television viewing privilege. I felt a cold yet burning stare in my direction. Cant they run those lousy commercials when Im not watching TV? Commercials are a way in which manufacturing companies in uence our choices. I have not done too much research, but the little I have done I discovered the same company makes the same product but sells it under a different name. There are two categories of products. There is the name brand, which costs a fortune. Then there is the generic brand, which is only a fraction of what the name brand cost. It is the same product, made by the same company, but advertised by difference venues. This is where choice comes in. Some people choose the highpriced product because they think it is better. Some of us choose the low-price product because we know better. One night, it seemed most of the commercials had to do with dieting of some kind. There were high calorie diets, low-carb diets and diets that really did not make sense to me. Those of us who are on the husband side of the marital equation know we do not make our own choices. Our choices are made for us by our better half. Why do you think we get married? My wife is a great one for fruit and vegetables. Every day of our life is fruit and vegetables. To mix things up a little bit, one day it will be vegetables and fruit. She prepares the fruit and then invites me to make a choice. I am sure she did not see all of this in any television commercial; at least I hope she hasnt. She is proud of the display of fruit choices she has for me. She is also concerned about my diet much more than I am. I choose to be a little more cavalier when it comes to dieting. Actually, and do not tell her I said this, but my fruit of choice is the humble apple fritter. It has everything my heart desires and a few things my body desires, too. I like with David said, Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart (Psalms 37:4 KJV). It is all a matter of choice that is, making the right choice. The Rev.
