F r o m the A ss o ci a t es o f S t o r e 2114 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Fourth District Representative Matt Gaetz gave the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce a visit during the chamber’s monthly breakfast meeting on Aug. 22 and spoke on multiple topics. “Sen. Don Gaetz, my father, sends his regards,” said Gaetz, who is an attorney with the Fort Walton Beach law rm Keefe, Anchors, Gordon and Moyle. “I thought I’d talk about how far the state has come over the past few years and where we’re going.” Gaetz said he was elected to the House in 2010 and said that quite a bit has changed since then. He is currently running for a seat in the state Senate. “We have come a long way since 2010,” Gaetz said. “When I was elected, Florida, we were really on the rocks. Growth was stagnate, every year more businesses were leaving our state, no new people were coming to the state and we were really concerned because when we have a decline in revenue then we can’t do what we need to do to fund our educational system By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — A workshop was held before the Holmes County Board of County Commissioner’s regularly scheduled meeting on Aug. 27 to discuss Salvation Army’s recent announcement that it will no longer provide probation services for Holmes County. “What the board will hear is a request to bring the probation services under the management of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners, the judge and the clerk of court,” County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. “Collections made from this service will be more than enough to pay for this program. What’s more is that employees will be transferred so there won’t be a need for hiring new employees, and there are some employees that have over 30 years of experience to bring to the table.” The only request to the board was to nance the rst three months of the program with an agreement to have the money returned to the county within a 12-month period. “We have the money, and it’s too bad but the Salvation Army is wanting to move on to bigger and better things,” Judge Owen Powell said. “We’re not looking for a handout, and this is not an obligation you have to worry about. Rehabilitation is an important thing to have because it’s the chance to rehabilitate without the use of the jail.” Clerk of Court Kyle Hudson said there was already a location in the courthouse, and this would be a positive change because that would put all of the necessary requirements and aspects of the probation process in one area. The board agreed it would be something to discuss at the next meeting in September, and Goodman said he would have a Salvation Army withdraws probation services HOLMES COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS See BOCC A2 By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — Florida residents will get four public hearings to sound off on gambling’s future in the state, as lawmakers prepare to craft comprehensive legislation for the industry that will be addressed in next year’s session. The sole Panhandle hearing will be in Pensacola in November. Meetings also are scheduled for Fort Lauderdale and Lakeland in October and Jacksonville in November. The exact dates of the meetings have not been set. Right now, the Spectrum Gaming Group is working on the second part of a $388,845 study, reviewing the economic impact of gaming on communities. Part one of the study was released July 1, and the nal piece will be out by Oct. 1, giving residents time to review it before the meetings. “I believe the hearings will provide the opportunity for people of varying opinions to react to the empirical analysis that the Senate and the House commissioned, and also to provide insights from a community prospective,” said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, who hopes to attend the Pensacola meeting.

VISITS HOLMES COUNTY By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com POPLAR SPRINGS — It was no surprise to her parents when fourth-grader Kayleigh Rose Bass of Poplar Springs School received the Florida Scholar Award for scoring the highest-level scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in reading. Kayleigh is the daughter of David Bass and Jennifer Gavin and the granddaughter of Bill Tom and Elizabeth Gavin and Dave and Frances Bass. Her father, David, said that her high scores in reading wasn’t a surprise because Kayleigh is an avid reader. “She is now and always has been interested in reading,” her father, David, said. “From the time she learned how to read she’s constantly reading a book or writing her on stories.” Kayleigh also received a letter from Sen. Don Gaetz. “On behalf of the Senate and State of Florida, I’m pleased to inform you that your outstanding scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test have earned you recognition Kayleigh Rose Bass, fourth grader at Poplar Springs School, holds her Florida Scholar Award with pride.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser as one of the highest per forming students in the state,” wrote Gaetz. “Your achievement in Reading is among the best of all stu dents in all schools in all counties in the state. Your scores stood out brilliantly not only in Holmes County but helped set the standard of academic excellence in Florida. “As your Senator, I’m so proud of you. You bring honor to your fam ily, your teachers at Poplar Springs School and your community.” For fun, Kayleigh loves sports, swimming and play ing with her dog, Rosabell. “She has a great rela tionship with and loves all of her teachers,” her father said. “Her favorite subjects are reading, language arts and art. When she grows up she wants to be a dol phin trainer or possibly a paleontologist.” Gaetz would like to hear from law enforcement, lo cal ofcials, religious lead ers and economic develop ment representatives. The diverse views would give lawmakers a broad perspective on gambling’s effects on various com munities and how policy changes could impact them in the future, Gaetz said. Gaetz wants the Leg islature to take a compre hensive approach to gam ing in the coming session, potentially overhauling the industry, but large bills like that can be tough to pass. “Any time one tries to take a holistic or compre hensive approach to a prob lem, there’s a greater bur den of proof that the policy change is well thought out,” he said. Such large-scale legisla tion creates greater poten tial for interest groups and communities to nd some thing they oppose, Gaetz said. He remains condent Sen. Garrett Richter, RNaples, who chairs a Sen ate gaming panel, will nd a comprehensive solution if there is one. And lawmak ers have some time to get there. “As far as I know, the rst word hasn’t been writ ten in a proposed bill yet,” Gaetz said. Chairman speaks Richtersaid he wants to hear the public’s concerns and what they support and oppose on gambling in the state. He said it’s impor tant to pair the study’s objective analysis with the public feedback as lawmak ers look to draft a bill. “My goal is to continue to build a foundation of information from which to make a good decision for the state of Florida,” he said, declining to take a position on expanding gambling. Richtersaid no legisla tion has been drafted at this point and none will be until the second part of the study is returned. Right now, he has staff reviewing existing statutes. He said he chose the four cities to capture in put from each part of the state: Jacksonville for the northeast, Pensacola for the northwest, Lakeland for Central Florida and Fort Lauderdale for South Florida. State Rep. Jimmy Pa tronis, R-Panama City, said he’d also try to sit in on the Pensacola hearing and ex pects proposed legislation will include the creation of a gaming commission, which would have “more teeth” and structure to oversee the industry. Patronis is staunchly opposed to expanding gam bling and has no plans to vote for a bill that only ex pands it. His vote next year will depend on the legis lation, he said. A bill that broadens gambling in some areas, but contracts, or to tally halts, it in others would be worth considering. “I’m convinced the pro cess will have to have some type of compromise lan guage in place to get sup port from folks like me,” he said. Patronis said he has no problem with gambling, but he doesn’t want it in his backyard. He said he wor ries about the “ills” that ac company it. I’m not going to be one of those that wants to ex pand gambling as we see it in Florida. Just because it exists in Mississippi is not a reason … to have it,” he said. State Rep. Marti Col ey, R-Marianna, hasn’t changed her mind on op posing gambling either, but she wants to hear what Floridians have to say on the issue. “I’m anxious to hear the results of the public hear ing,” she said, adding she will try to attend the Pen sacola meeting. Coley noted the Legisla ture will need to renegoti ate the Seminole compact, which regulates gambling in Seminole territory, be cause it expires in 2015. Coley acknowledged that gambling is a hot-but ton issue and will remain that way as the session approaches. “I’m sure there will be a lot of discussion and debate over the next few months,” she said. proposed ordinance ready for the board to approve. The board approved of Sandpath Road Phase II Sidewalk agreement with a vote of 4 to 1, with Commis sioner Kenneth Williams voting “no.” The board also approved of Solid Waste Franchise Agreements with North west Sanitation, Household Disposal, Sanders Refuse and Waste Management. The board approved of the litter/recycling techni cian job description and was informed of a Waste Tire Amnesty event on Sept. 16-20, where each household would be al lowed to bring all their old tires to the Holmes County Recycling Center for free disposal. The limit is 20 tires per household and no tractor-trailer tires. For more information, contact Holmes County Re cycling Center at 547-0922. The next regularly scheduled meeting is set for 9 a.m. on Sept. 10. and take care of our state workers.” In 2010, the unemploy ment rate in the state of Florida was 11.4 percent and today is 7.1 percent, he said. “That’s the second sharpest decline in the un employment rate in the en tire country,” he said. “In 2010, 400,000 people were on unemployment in Florida, today it’s down to 250,000 people. Since 2010 the busi nesses in our state have created 330,000 new private sector jobs.” He said if the job market is growing then all of the jobs are more secure. “How did we get there, because you know it wasn’t an accident since 2010 that we’ve improved our econo my since then and it won’t continue automatically,” said Gaetz. “I think one of the reasons why things got a lot better was because we started getting rid of some of those crazy regulation laws. Back when I was young and I wanted to do something innovative someone would say I couldn’t do it because of the APA.” The APA, he explained, was the Administrative Pro cedures Act in the state of Florida. “We had over 30,000 rules and regulations on the books, and these were rules and regulations no politician had ever even voted for. These are things that bureaucrats had gone and complicated, and I gured in the state of Florida that we didn’t need nine pages of regulations on how big a swimming pool has to be.” Since 2010, he said they have repealed and revised over 4,100 of the 30,000 rules and regulations. “I think that’s how prog ress is made,” Gaetz said. “When you kind of peel back the extent to which govern ment is monitoring into peo ple’s lives, it creates an en vironment where people can make their own decisions.” Another reason of the economic growth in Florida, he said, was that instead of raising taxes the state of Florida decided to do budget cuts. “We had to make some tough cuts and some of them hurt, but we didn’t do like New York state, California or Detroit,” Gaetz said. “Now we’re growing and those places are seeing folks leave faster than ever before. I think it’s really put us on the right path economically.” Another area to look at, he said, is the educational system. “I’m glad to say that we got extra money last year from our growing economy and we took a million dol lars and added to our edu cation budget,” Gaetz said. “Here in Holmes County, you have seen the benet of that. Each school in Holmes County seen an increase last year, and we expect to see even more money this year, not because we have more taxes but because we have more tax payers.” If you are interested in watching video of Gaetz a link will be provided at www. bonifaynow.com. Julia Bullington, coordi nator for the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, re minded everyone that there were only 40 days until this year’s Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. “We were asked to help get the rodeo back to its glory days,” Bullington said. “They’re calling it ‘Rodeo Reboot,’ and they’re trying to go back to the roots, like back in the ‘50s when people got excited about the rodeo, and we came together as a community to help celebrate by decorating store fronts, making oats and hanging ags. We’ve got between 30,000 and 50,000 people who come into Bonifay for camp ing, rodeo and parades and we want to welcome them and get them as excited as we are.” She said the newest member and owner of The Silver Door, Carla Temple ton, had some ideas of hav ing an art contest with the schools competing for the best painted store front win dow, with the winners being recognized. “We’ll have more details on this project at a later time, and we’re open for suggestions,” Bullington said. “Rodeo is coming fast, but it’s coming along nicely for such a massive job. We’re going to track down the exact number of tax in ux due to this event so ev eryone can see just how big of an impact it makes to this area.” NO HIDDEN CHARGES: It is our polic y that the patient and an y other per son r esponsib le f or pa yments has the r ight t o r efuse t o pa y cancel pa yment or be r eimb ur sed b y pa yment or an y other ser vice e x amination or tr eatment which is perf or med as a r esult of and within 72 hour s of r esponding t o the adv er tisement f or the fr ee discount ed f ee or r educed f ee ser vice e x amination or tr eatment.

Were closed for work days, library director Renae Rountree said. We are getting ready for a new computer system that will be installed in February. The new system is going to save the library $15,000, and in these days of tight governmental budgets, that is a plus. Theyve not told me of any cuts, Rountree said of the coming budget year. One plus for the library budget is the nancial aid which libraries receive from the state of Florida. For each dollar budgeted by the county, we get 50 cents from the state, she said. That means nearly a third of our budget comes from revenue outside of the county. However, the library aid from the state has been controversial in the past, Rountree said. Rountree, who was named the new library director on July 25 by the Board of County Commissioners, has been employed by the library system since 2010 and has a masters degree in library science from Florida State University. I grew up in Cottondale, but my grandparents lived in Chipley, right next to the old library. I used to walk to the library by myself, which was a big thing when I was little, she said. The Jackson County Library also used to run a Bookmobile to the IGA in Cottondale, and Rountree said she used to enjoying visiting the bus to check out books as well. She got her bachelors degree from FSU-Panama City and went on to complete her masters degree online. Having the education quali ed her for the role of library director, and when the job came open earlier this year, she applied. They interviewed me, and I was chosen, she said, I was really excited. She began as an assistant branch manager for the Washington County Public Library, which has branch libraries in Vernon, Wausau and Sunny Hills as well as the main library in Chipley. As library director, Rountree said her primary goal is to increase services to the librarys patrons. I think a lot of people dont realize all the services we have available at the library, she said. Besides the obvious books, the library offers DVDs, audio books, childrens books and e-books. The library also offers a variety of programs such as the summer reading program for adults and children, ACT and SAT prep classes, proctored college exams and even Tai Chi classes. As brick and mortar bookstores continue to disappear, the library becomes more and more important to a community, Rountree said. Washington County has no movie theater, no bookstore, and limited movie rental options, so the county library provides those services and provides them for free. Library staff have also participated in local events such as Trunk or Treat and Legends & Lore at Falling Waters State Park, Rountree said. The library has also hosted concerts in the past, and Rountree plans to showcase more musical talent in the future. I want to have more services and events for the public, Rountree said. I want people to see that we offer more than just books. By HOLMES COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT Special to Times-Advertiser HOLMES COUNTY Public Works Department has continued to keep the roads passable for local traf c and emergency vehicles while waiting on the Federal Emergency Management Adminstration to assess the damages and provide nancial help with repairing the roads to pre-disaster condition, according to Holmes County Emergency Management. Holmes County was declared a Federal Disaster Area on Aug. 2 for public assistance. All dirt roads have been affected by the excessive heavy rainfall amounts since July 2. We ask that you please be patient on the road conditions until FEMA can inspect them and write a scope of work to include not only repairing the roads but to include mitigation projects that will restore them better than before, Director of Emergency Management Wanda Stafford said. FEMA is currently working on the City of Bonifay and the Town of Noma and will start on the County roads tentatively on Sept. 9.

Your writer let the important month for the birthdays of people in his life slip right through his ngers without any mention of anyone with birthdays in the month of August. In this rst September column, an effort will be made to honor August birthdays and add two more birthday people to the already long list. Others people with August birthdays, who have not been left out in the long history of this writing, will be recognized. First of all, ole Perry Wells, the Prattler, celebrated his 86th milestone on Aug. 24 with numerous beautiful cards of expressions from well wisher over a wide area of the country, and especially readers of Perrys Prattle. My former roommate, Sammie Ray Young, a Clewiston, Fla., native, and I have maintained a fairly close contact throughout the more than 60 years since my departure from the University of Florida. He was the rst to respond to the recent birthday of his former roomie, sending his regards all the way from his Silver Spring, Md., home of more than 40 years. Sammie is still struggling with the loss of his wife, Jeanne, who passed away March 15, 2012. From Flat Rock, N.C., a card was received from 98year-old, Mary Hiley Koru Remington, a Chipley native whom I know so well but have never personally met. Her greetings included the personal notation: Dear Perry, I am still subscribing to the Washington County News so I can enjoy your Prattle M. Those who own the Heritage of Washington County Book are missing a treat if they have not taken the time to turn to pages 311 and 312 and read the three installments of this ladys long and interesting life and her humble beginnings. Closer home, an early greeting card was received from friend, Randall P. Roberts, a Bonifay native who joined the Prattler in graduating from in the School of Business Administration, University of Florida, on Feb. 2, 1952. We, too, have kept in contact, especially in the past eight years since the death of his beloved wife, Florence, a loss he is continuing to deal with. A quick review of Happy Birthday Greeting Cards reveals at least 15 additional ones were received. An untold number of telephone calls and emails should also be mentioned. One of the new people added to the Aug. 24 birthday list include my kinsman, Frank Lee, the son of John D. Lee and Robbie Yates Lee. While awaiting the arrival of the fourth printing of the Heritage Book, I encountered Frank in Freds in Bonifay. I told him of the books expected arrival date. A contact with him resulted in an immediate sale. He, along the hundreds of other owners, have told me of their enjoyment of this chronicle of history. Many of my readers know that Paul Davidson Jr. owns and operates Main Street Produce in Chipley. They should also know Paul was recently honored by the Florida Agriculture Extension Service for his contribution to the eld of Agriculture with his business and his actual farm experience as well. Pauls wife, LeAnn Clenney Davidson, ARNPC, is associated with Family Health Care in Chipley. Recently, I learned her father, the Rev. John Clenney, who passed away a few months ago, was born Aug. 24, 1937, making him 10 years younger than me. I only met her dad once, and at the time he was pastor of a Baptist Church in Ebro. He also served other churches, including one in Port St. Joe. Joey Nichols, Chipley businessman, enjoys an Aug. 24 birthday, and he is standing by awaiting Cousin Perry to mention his name. Joey recently lost his father, Q. L. Nichols, in death. Others with Aug. 24 birthdays include Annie Myrel Collins Frame, Pauline Steverson Farmer and her twin sister, Catherine Steverson Owens, Ralph E. Harris, Charlie Hilton, Bay County Attorney, the late Judge W. L. Fitzpatrick and others who may have slipped off my memory board. age and birthdays have became part of my conversation with neighbor and friend, Bill Webb, who is one of those who brought the Dixie Lily Milling Company to Chipley in 1947. Bill Webb always remembers that his birthday is two days prior to mine and that he two years older than me. So, Happy Birthday Greetings are in order for Bill Webb, who turned 88 on Aug. 22! Bill and wife, Sybil, are always ready to support worthy causes in the area, and he knows to reach for his billfold, especially at Watermelon Festival time. My brother, Jim Wells, is an Aug. 21 birthday boy with our brother, Clyde Wells, having his one week earlier, Aug. 14. All of this seems of more importance to me as Jim and I get older and in view of the fact that we lost Clyde on Feb. 2, 1990. Hester only had two nieces and two nephews on the Lucas side of her family. The children of her brother, Dan Lucas and wife, Ruth, both have Aug. 28 birthdays. Scott arrived on Aug. 28, 1963, and his sister, Shelia, joined the family on Aug. 28, 1968. Adding to the list is Scotts wife, Donna, who has an Aug. 29 birthday. I dont think I have ever missed acknowledging the birthday of a special lady, Bess Yates Harrell. She celebrated her 95th birthday on Aug. 10. Bess is a resident of the Third Floor in the Northwest Florida Community Hospital, and I have to ashamedly admit that I have not made a visit, visit with her. I hope to make amends soon! Some nieces, nephews, cousins and even grandchildren, are being left out of this tribute and I ask forgiveness for that. Look for more birthday recognition for September. See you all next week. I cant believe that I have been turning out an article a week for more than seven years, but sometimes the creative juices stop. When I am experiencing writers block or just unable to come up with a subject for my Happy Corner, perusing the Heritage of Holmes County history or an old copy of The Holmes County Advertiser usually brings something to mind. This week I came across a copy of the Nov. 27, 1975, Advertiser. Though 1975 doesnt seem so long ago to me, a glance at the content of the paper tells me things have changed a lot in the ensuing years. The grocery advertisements are a quick reminder that we are not living in 1975. For example, The Piggly Wiggly advertised 5 pounds of sugar for 78 cents while Bonifay IGA had it for 68 cents. This Saturday, Piggly Wiggly has 4 pounds for $1.99, which is a good buy, and I will stock up a supply for my continuing jellymaking. In 1975 a pound of Chase and Sanborn coffee was 98 cents. The last time I noticed, a pound of ground coffee was around $7. Campbells Tomato soup was 17 cents, ve pounds of our was 58 cents and a 14ounce package of sh sticks was 88 cents. Well, that is how we were able to rear three children on a teachers salary. In the military news, Robert F. Henry and Max Farmer completed a seven-week basic eld artillery course at the U.S. Army Training Center at Fort Sill, Okla. Both Henry and Farmer are 1975 graduates of Holmes County High School. Private Ronald F. Marschka, former Vernon High School student, completed recruit training at Paris Island, S.C., and will be stationed at Camp Lejune, N.C., for advanced training. Army Specialist Kenneth Tate has been assigned to the 6th Infantry, Berlin Brigade, Berlin, Germany. Bonifay had a local radio station, WBGC, located in Chipley. They were having a favorite disc jockey contest, and those submitting a vote will be in line to win a turkey. New homes by M. Walding Construction Co. in Pineview Estates near Jellystone Park were advertised by Fish Realty. Three-bedroom brick homes with 1 baths on half-acre lots were going at $19,800. Closing costs were under $300, and 100 percent nancing was available. Who remembers Jellystone Park? There was a nice swimming pool and clubhouse with a camp ground on Son-in-law Road. The camp ground now operates under the name of Florida Springs; the pool has been lled in, and the clubhouse once used for an assisted living is now a private residence. In the 50 years ago column, a 1925 city council special session passes a sidewalk ordinance over the objections of Mayor Ban ll. He took an active part in the discussion arguing strongly against the passage of the ordinance. Bonifay doesnt need sidewalks any more than they need re in hell, declared the mayor, somewhat heatedly. The explosion brought a round of laughter, but when the roll call vote came, every member of the council voted to pass the measure. In another 50 years ago item, Holmes County housewife, Mrs. Andrew Williams, last week sold a ock of 11 young turkeys weighing 86 pounds. She received 25 cents a pound making her return $21.50. In the 25 years ago column, the Bonifay Singing Society held the rst sing and business session. R. J. Colvin was elected chairman, Brother Henry Mears, vice chairman, Miss Norma Jean Hathaway, secretary-treasurer, Monroe Williams and Mrs. Homer Howell, arranging committee, and Mrs. B.J. Martin, pianist. I remember attending some of those singings at the Holmes County Courthouse as a teenager. I also remember attending Friday night gospel singings in the homes of some of the participants. Some of those were the homes of Mr. and Mrs. B.J. Martin, Mr. and Mrs.Tobe Retherford, Mr. and Mrs. Code Ross and we (the Wells family) also hosted some of them in our home. Looking back in the Advertiser brings back a lot of memories. Thanks to the then editor and publisher, Orren Smith and wife Dianne Williams Smith for carrying on the family tradition. Their daughter, Stephanie, is now associated with the Washington County News/ Holmes County TimesAdvertiser, continuing the family tradition. During these rainy days, I think we have assumed time stood still, but now we realize that was not so. The summer is about gone, and September is here. Schools back in session. Soon it will be Rodeo time, and the holidays will follow too quickly. These old news stories remind us how eeting time really is.

This was at Watermelon Festival time. The dad was 84 and son, Perry, was 62. August brings lots of memories and birthdays Of cials announced recently that the Florida Senate will host a series of four public hearings this fall to seek public input on the future of gambling in the state. They will be in conjunction with the release of the second part of an outside study commissioned by the Legislature to examine the impact of gaming. Thats the prelude to what is expected to be the blockbuster issue in the 2014 legislative session: whether to expand casino gambling. However, lawmakers also should clean up some obstacles and inconsistencies in the regulation of already established gaming operations many of which could use a lifeline. As reported by The News Heralds Matthew Beaton, revenue from betting on live greyhound races at the track in Ebro fell 70 percent the last seven years. That includes a drop of 9.6 percent last year. Ebro is not alone live greyhound betting revenue in Florida fell by 5.8 percent last year. Thoroughbred racing has suffered an even steeper decline, and jai-alai has all but disappeared. Ebro and other parimutuels have supplanted some of that lost racing revenue by offering other forms of gambling, such as poker rooms. But state law requires greyhound tracks to conduct a minimum number of races each year if they also have other forms of gaming. That can range from 100 performances all the way to 394; Ebros required minimum is 167 (a performance consists of at least eight live races). In most cases, thats too many races chasing too few customers. Why should tracks go to the expense of providing a product that a declining number of people want to buy? For that matter, why should dogs be forced to run for little pro t? Thats the hook that has made allies out of opponents. Groups such as GREY2K USA that oppose greyhound racing on animal welfare grounds they believe the dogs are treated cruelly and exploited would welcome a reduction in races (and eventually their elimination). Although track owners such as Ebros Stocky Hess defend their treatment of the dogs, they also support having the freedom to hold as few races as they want. Dog racing may not completely disappear, but the tracks economic future clearly lies in expanding into other forms of gambling. That is harder to do when the state binds their hands on race days. Tying poker to greyhounds makes no logical sense. One doesnt burnish the credentials of the other. Previous attempts to pass legislation decoupling the two forms of gaming have failed. But with momentum building to craft comprehensive gaming reform in Florida next year, the time is ripe to nally get over the hump and give the racing industry and its opponents what they want. Once that happens, lawmakers can address efforts by Ebro and others to expand into other forms of casino gambling. IN OUR VIEW Decouple dogs, cards HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 By SCOTT CARROLL 522-5280|@scottyknoxville SCarroll@pcnh.com MARIANNA University of South Florida research ers began exhuming hu man remains of more than 50 students at the former Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna on Satur day morning. Its the rst of several excavations USF research ers have planned this year at the shuttered reform school, where over several decades, dozens of students were allegedly beaten, tor tured and sexually abused, according to some former students, who also said they believe other students were killed at the boys school, which was once the largest of its kind in the country. Forensic anthropolo gist Erin Kimmerle, lead researcher in the project, said she hopes to have four to six graves fully excavated by Tuesday. Researchers had already determined Saturday that some of the remains were wrapped and buried in cofns. They be lieve the cofns were con structed in the carpentry shop on the Dozier School campus. Researchers will use the remains to construct a bio logical prole that includes the age, sex and ancestry of the deceased. Its everything about you that we can tell from your biology, and that gives us a picture of who the per son was, she said. From there, researchers will cross-reference a list of Dozier students, then com pare DNA samples to con rm the identity. Unidenti ed remains will be rebur ied on the Dozier School campus with a casket and marker. Skeletonized remains will be examined for frac tures and other damage to determine if violence had taken place. But whether those conclusions can be made depends on the pres ervation of individual re mains, Kimmerle said. Researchers believe the burial site contains the bod ies of black Dozier School students, and suspect an other campus burial for white students exists. The school was segregated until 1968. Kimmerle said Satur day that researchers likely wont be able to conrm a separate burial site for white students until some time this winter. Several former Dozier School students and their relatives stopped by the campus Saturday morn ing to speak with report ers and USF ofcials. They described being beaten at a white concrete shed on campus known as The White House, where stu dents were allegedly taken to be physically punished. School ofcials primary tool in the punishments, many former students have said, was a leather strap with a wooden handle. Johnny Lee Gaddy, 67, said Saturday he was beaten with the strap until he was bleeding like a hog. Other former stu dents have said they were whipped until they passed out. They had no heart for children, no compassion for children, Gaddy said. Gaddy was sent to the reform school in the 1960s for truancy, as was 68-yearold Richard Huntly. Huntly said Saturday that he, too, was regularly beaten for be havior ranging from ght ing to disobedience. Other beatings, he said, seemed to occur at random. I was just scared to death during that time, Huntly said. Huntly and Gaddy were with a group of former Doz ier School students who be lieve they should receive nancial restitution for their years of physical labor at the school, which was owned and operated by the state. The school made slaves out of us, Huntly said. He and other students regu larly cut timber and sugar cane, and operated tractors. During one instance of such outdoor labor, Huntlys toe was severed in an accident. Another former Dozier school student, 67-year-old Roger Kiser, stood outside the schools razor-wire fence on Saturday and said hes become a little numb to his experience at the school. Ill never forget be ing beaten at The White House, he said. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet voted ear lier this month to allow USF to exhume the bodies. The project has received $190,000 in funding from the state and a $423,528 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. Researchers have one year to exhume, identify and rebury human remains, as well as locate additional burials at the school. O ur Michigan frien d c aught this b eautiful R ed Gr oup er!

SPORTS A Section Wednesday, September 4, 2013 Page 6 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON The Chipley Tigers dominated the Vernon Yellow Jackets 28-13 in the season opener Friday at Vernon. The weather was extra steamy and lightning crackled to the north and east, but the rain held off as the two Washington County teams played a game often stymied by cramps and yellow ags. The Yellow Jackets had trouble getting outside of their own 10-yard mark during their rst four possessions, but the next time Vernon got the ball they were more calm and got some yardage. The Jackets drew rst blood when senior running back Brandon Malloy scored from the 6-yard line with 10:20 left to play in the rst half. Aaron Bowers kick was good for the extra point. Junior Bradley Hall nabbed a screen pass from senior quarterback Jordan Finch and scampered 40 yards to score two minutes after Vernon got on the board. Senior running back Kobe McCrarys PAT added 2 to make it 8-7 going into the half. McCrary was Chipleys go-to guy Friday for yardage. Not only did he score the only PAT of the game, he ran 34 yards just seconds into the second half to get the Tigers a 14-7 lead. A Vernon safety at 7:07 bumped the Chipley lead up to 16-7, and junior running back Wyatt Brock capped a 60-yard drive by scoring from 4 yards out ve seconds into the nal quarter. The PAT try was no good, but the Tigers had a 22-7 edge. Vernon was unable to get past the line off scrimmage on their next possession, and when Chipley got the ball again, it went straight to McCrary, who broke out on the rst down and scrambled 23 yard before the Vernon defenders caught him. Junior Darren Stewart added 12 yards, and Brock earned 5 more, moving the Tigers to the Vernon 30 before the ball went over to the Yellow Jackets on downs. Three plays in, Vernon fumbled the ball away and the Tigers took the drive back up where they left off, just inside the Yellow Jackets 30. Junior running back Carlon Smith was good for 5 yards, then McCrary ran 23 yards to the end zone. With 1:06 left to play, Malloy found the end zone one more time to give the Vernon squad 6 more points. Vernon travels to West Gadsen on Friday, while Chipley has no game scheduled for Friday. By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Two volleyball teams with their eyes on the future got a good look at their present Thursday night. A senior-less Chipley squad cruised in the nal two games to defeat host North Bay Haven 25-21, 23-25, 25-12, 25-11 in a nondistrict volleyball match. The visiting Tigers (2-0) reached the Region 1-1A nals last year, but they will play without a single senior on their team this fall. The lack of seniors didnt leave Chipley punchless against the Buccaneers, however. The Tigers showcased their repower at the net and eventually wore down North Bay Haven (0-2) inside a sweltering, humid gym that had players and spectators alike sweating profusely. Chipley junior Kyli Miner said the Tigers recognize they dont have any seniors leading the way, but they have a talented crop of underclassmen on the roster that can contribute at the net or in the back row. Weve got a lot of freshmen who have a lot of talent, and were working hard, Miner said. Were trying to get our record to 18-0 and go all the way. After Chipley outlasted the Buccaneers to win the rst game, NBH rallied late to erase a 21-18 de cit in the second game. NBH grabbed a 24-23 lead with a Jasmine Bogere kill, and a carry following a Haley Byrd serve allowed the Buccaneers to capture the second game. We really showed what were going to be, NBH coach Shana Peeples said of her players performance in the second game. We showed what were capable of. We fought with a lot of heart, and they gave it all they had. Winning games, let alone matches, is an important step in the maturation of an NBH program that won one match last year and is playing with seniors for the rst time this season. The Buccaneers, who beat Bozeman in a preseason match that doesnt affect their record, have three seniors on the roster: twin sisters Jasmine and Phrieda Bogere and Alexis Winsett. I feel like this is the best North Bay Haven team weve had to date, said Peeples, a former Mosley and Gulf Coast standout who is in her fourth season as head coach. Once it starts clicking as a team, were going to be very competitive. The Tigers put the match away with a dominant performance in the nal two games. Miner sparked a 100 run in the third game with a kill and a block on the rst two points of that spurt. Freshman Gianna Mathews capped the run with a pair of kills that gave Chipley a 15-7 lead. NBH was limited to no more than two consecutive points for the rest of the match as the Tigers took over. Chipley ran away with the nal game behind an 8-0 run that gave the Tigers an 18-7 advantage.

SPORTS A Section By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com BONIFAY Aside from a few notable miscues, Arnold looked very little like a team in rebuilding mode Friday night. The Marlins overwhelmed Holmes County on both sides of the ball in a game more lopsided than the score would indicate, posting a 35-0 victory at Memorial Field in a nondistrict game that marked the season opener for both programs. The Marlins, a Class 5A school that nished 2-7 last year, proved too mighty for Holmes County, a Class 1A program also reloading this year. Arnold led 7-0 at halftime before taking control in the second half. The Marlins swarmed Justice Bice in the backeld for a safety and a 9-0 lead early in the second half. Arnold quickly boosted its lead to 16-0 with Torri Cottons 19-yard sprint to the end zone with 10:17 remaining in the third quarter. Arnolds Connor MacKenzie blocked a punt out of the end zone to increase Arnolds lead to 18-0 with 7:44 left in the third quarter. Ninety seconds later, Marlin quarterback Cody Saunders located Dario Batiste open in the corner of the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown pass and a 25-0 advantage. Marlins place-kicker Austin Peffers contributed with a 29-yard eld goal with just over 10 minutes remaining for a 28-0 lead. MacKenzie, who had a punt return for a touchdown called back earlier in the game because of a penalty, scored on a 30-yard punt return with 6:44 left to provide the nal margin and a running clock. Saunders scored the Marlins rst touchdown of the season with a 1-yard sneak into the end zone for a 7-0 lead with 1 minute, 22 seconds left in the rst quarter. That scoring opportunity was provided when Arnolds defense forced a fumble and recovered it at the Holmes County 14-yard line. Saunders scored seven plays later. The Blue Devils responded with a 77-yard burst by Chad Leavins on the rst play of their next drive. Darcel Johnsons tackle of Leavins at Arnolds 2-yard line saved a touchdown, however, and the Marlins forced Holmes County to lose a total of 6 yards on the next four plays from scrimmage to turn away the threat and preserve the shutout. That goal-line stand punctuated a dominant performance by Arnolds defense, particularly the defensive line, in the rst half. The Blue Devils gained 1 yard or fewer on 13 of 26 plays before halftime. Outside of the one long run, Leavins otherwise was limited to 0 yards on his other 10 carries in the rst two quarters. Arnold running back Torri Cotton amassed 76 yards on six carries in the rst half, but he had two long touchdown runs negated by holding penalties. The rst was a 62-yard scamper midway through the opening quarter. The other was a 66-yard romp early in the second quarter. An Arnold penalty also spoiled Darcel Johnsons 43-yard punt return for a touchdown in the second half. Cotton nished with a game-high 133 rushing yards on 11 carries, and Saunders nished with 113 yards on 6-for-12 passing. C heck y our winner picks and send in t oda y!

A8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Superinten dent of Holmes County Schools Eddie Dixon gave the latest updates for the schools during the Boni fay Kiwanis Clubs Aug. 21 meeting, which included the rst day of school and the latest trip to Tallahassee. We had a great start to the new school year, Dix on said. Technology has become a wonderful thing. We now have a system that can call 3,000 at once to let them know that schools were canceled Monday due to the weather. He said there were 70 new students to attend Hol mes County schools this year, which equals half a million dollars in additional funding from the state. It seems that people are moving back now that the economy is steadily improving, Dixon said. There are also those com ing in from Washington and Jackson County, especially since Jackson County has implemented their new uniform policy. Weve got more students coming into the county than leaving. He expounded on their recent presentation in Tal lahassee towards building the new Bonifay middle and elementary schools. We went to Tallahas see last Thursday, met with representatives from the Governors Ofce and the Department of Educa tion and gave a 30-minute presentation, Dixon said. That night, we found out we were approved to be put on the budget for the next year. We still need to be ap proved by legislature for funding, so any good word we can send that way would be very helpful. He said he has noticed a great deal of support. What amazes me is how the community has come together for this proj ect, Dixon said. Weve got stacks and stacks of let ters of support. Were go ing to work hard to get this project. Dixon also said there is no funding to help Bon ifays middle and elemen tary schools. The middle school, which was the old high school, was built in the s and still has clay plumbing, most of which has already collapsed and can no lon ger support the schools capacity, Dixon said. The district has done a fantas tic job maintaining these schools for so long, but its come down to something beyond a simple x. Both schools are just worn out from the inside, and af ter close examination, the state said they would not help fund repairs, say ing funding would only be available to rebuild from the ground up. He added Bonifay does not have a special needs shelter. The only one we have is in Poplar Springs in the west end of the county, he said. We want to build on the current Holmes County Fair Grounds. Well work something out with the fair, but it would be in the best interest of the schools to have all three schools grouped together in one area. Dixon said they would all be located on one side of the railroad tracks, and it would be on the same side as all of the emergency response teams, such as re, police, ambulance and hospital. He said the structure of the building would be built with safety in mind. The old high school and elementary school were built with a wide open structure during a time when safety wasnt an is sue and they were more interested in a more pod structure, Dixon said. The new school is de signed to protect against outside threats. For exam ple, the elementary school students will be able to play safely in a courtyard sur rounded by buildings. He said portions are built to withstand a cat egory ve hurricane, but hes pushing for additional funding to have the whole building fortied as well. A water tower would be put in to help supply water to the new water sprinkler system in case of a re, Dixon said. This will also help the city with a new water tower, which will also help increase water pres sure in that section of the city. During question and an swers someone asked if the funding included an audito rium for the new schools and Dixon replied that they only fund high school auditoriums. Dixon said if all goes well the construction of the new schools will start as soon as October 2014 and could be completed as soon as the rst day of school for the 2015-16 school year. Were also looking into building new facilities in Ponce de Leon so we can get rid of the portables, Dixon said. I cant tell you how excited we are of the progress being made in Holmes County and how very blessed we are. WITH ANY PURCHASE OF $25 OR MORE M ust pr esen t c oupon.

Upand-coming local Christian rap artist, Daniel Evans, held a performance on Aug. 17 at Dove Christian Supply Bookstore in En terprise, Ala. and signed CDs for customers. Evans, from Chancel lor, Ala., is described as a promising hip-hop art ist whose singing roots originated from his local church. Daniel Evans has been singing his praises to God using old-school hiphop beats combined with modern crunk for that con temporary vibe. Evans said he grew up in Fort Walton Beach but now has a home in Chancellor. I started writing songs at a young age, I accepted the Lord at a young, but al ways liked rap, so I decid ing to start writing Chris tian rap, because I felt that God could use me to reach people through it, Evans said. I quit doing it for a while, because I got out of church for a while and got depressed and discour aged because I thought I was a failure to myself, God and others. At one point in time I did not thank go can still use me I was inspired to write this song called, Nothing Going to Stop Me, and started back writ ing because my Dad said you use to rap, and you use to tell people about The Lord, Evans said. That motivated me to start back writing, going back to church, rapping and telling people about the Lord as well as get ting back in the studio and record. He said the thing that keeps him going is his mother and his familys prayers. Its the joy and the hap piness I bring all my family friends when they listen to my music or see me per form, Evans said. And its the doors God keep opening for me to get my message out as Im just His willing vessel, but it also brings me joy to rap and its something I love to do.

Payne says taking the time to separate your recycled goods can help save you money in the long run as well as help save the planet. People would be amazed at how much they could save in garbage fees if theyd only recycle, Payne said. I have several people who dont have garbage collection because they take their recycled items here and what garbage is left is so small that they can collect it over a month and just take it to the dump for a small fee. The recycling center charges businesses and schools to pick up recycled items, but it is free of cost for the public to bring in their recycled items. Theres several items that people just dont think about as being free recycled items, Payne said. They think of the standard paper, plastic and aluminum, but it also includes metal appliances, car batteries and used oil. Other items can be recycled as well, but for a fee. Its actually not that much to recycle certain items, she said. Weve actually managed to keep the same fees since 2009, and thats really awesome for our area. What many dont know is if they bring ink cartridges in they are recycled in the sense that they are donated to non-pro t organizations, Payne said. I also go through and collect soup labels and box tops to give to the local schools. Payne is in the process of registering for a grant writing class to nd ways of getting additional funding for the recycling center to expand their services and increase community participation and education. I have more older people who recycle, and I think thats mostly because they are on a xed income and need to save money, she said. The majority of younger people that recycle are from areas who mandate it. I foresee the state of Florida mandating recycling in the future. Holmes County Recycling Center will be hosting a Waste Tire Amnesty event on Sept. 16 through Sept. 20, where each household would be allowed to bring all their old tires to the Holmes County Recycling Center for free disposal. The limit is 20 tires per household and no semi tires. For more information, contact Holmes County Recycling Center at 547-0922.

The couple and their families would like to invite family and friends to join them in this celebration. Special to Extra The new school year is underway, but what about the littlest members of the family who are not old enough for school? Though they may not be in class rooms with school teach ers, they are learning and developing new skills every day. It is helpful for parents to understand when a child should be reaching their developmental milestones. Developmental milestones refer to when children ac quire a new skill or accom plishment, whether it is a rst tooth or the rst time the baby rolls over or says their rst word. Every state has a formal system for early interven tion to identify children who may be experiencing de velopmental delays and to provide early intervention services. In Florida, that system is called Early Steps a statewide early inter vention system that offers services to eligible infants and toddlers (birth to thirtysix months) with signicant delays or a condition likely to result in a developmental delay. The local Early Steps of ce in Panama City serves children and families in the six county region that cov ers Holmes, Jackson, Wash ington, Bay, Calhoun and Gulf Counties. Wendy Morgan, the Pro gram Manager for Early Steps, explained, Each child grows at an individual pace, but research shows that a childs rst three years are the most impor tant time for learning. So parents who get help early put their children on the right path to learn and de velop at their full potential. According to Early Steps, parents are a childs rst teachers. They are the rst to know their childs needs and strengths and are best at providing daily support during everyday routines. So what should a parent do if they are concerned that their child may not be developing as they should? What if they are concerned about the childs motor skills like crawling or walk ing or communication skills like speech? Morgan explained the process of referring a child to Early Steps. Referrals often come from pediatri cians, other community agencies like Healthy Fami lies or Healthy Start, or from child care centers, but parents can self refer their children as well. Morgan went on to ex plain the philosophy of Early Steps, which believes in partnership with families and provides families and caregivers with training and support to increase learn ing opportunities for their children. Family members learn how to use everyday routines like meals, bath time, dressing, play and outings to encourage their childs development of skills and independence. Early Steps services are provided at no charge to the family. The process begins with a screening and evaluation of the childs development. If the childs scores indicate a delay, an individualized family support plan is devel oped and services are put in place. Services can include speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational ther apy, or early intervention. Early Steps encourages parents who have con cerns about their childs development, to talk with their childs pediatrician or other health care provider.

Four other Florida College System (FCS) institutions made the list: North Florida Community College, Miami Dade College, Valencia College and South Florida State College. On behalf of the faculty and staff of Chipola College, we are pleased to be recognized for offering quality instruc tion, said Chipola President Dr. Gene Prough. I am very proud of our faculty and support personnel who provide a quality learning environment for our students. This honor recognizes the Florida College Systems commitment to both access and high-quality education, said FCS Chancellor Randy Hanna. I com mend our colleges for their ongoing ef forts to serve the needs of our state. Using data from the Community Col lege Survey of Student Engagement and U.S. Department of Education, Washington Monthly rates community colleges in a number of areas, including collaborative learning, student effort, academic rigor, student-faculty interac tion and support for learning. Retention, graduation and completion rates are also factored into the rankings. Chipola had a rst-year retention rate of 65.9 which was fth among the top 50 colleges. Chipola was eleventh in the Three-year graduation/transfer rate at 57.9 percent. This number indicates the percentage of students who gradu ate or transfer to another college within three years of rst enrolling. Chipola offers the Bachelor of Sci ence Degree, the Associate in Arts De gree, the Associate in Science Degree and Workforce Development programs. According to Washington Monthlys editors, We designed the Washington Monthly college rankings to embody the American higher education compact at the institutional level. Instead of lauding colleges for closing their doors to all but an elite few, we give high marks to insti tutions that enroll low-income students, help them graduate and dont charge them an arm and a leg to attend. These rankings are especially im portant because they highlight the systems mission of providing access to low-cost, high-quality education and job training, said Chancellor Hanna. I am extremely proud of all of our colleges for helping prepare Floridians for high-skill, high-wage jobs. For more information, view Wash ington Monthlys rankings at washing tonmonthly.com. Special to Extra TALLAHASSEE The Flor ida Youth Conservation Centers Network (FYCCN), whose goal is to create the next generation that cares about sh and wildlife con servation, is on a roll. This bold initiative, sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), is dedicated to pro viding a statewide network of sustainable places where youth and their families can participate in outdoor ac tivities that inspire conser vation stewardship and a love of our fabulous natural resources. The FYCCN is about helping kids develop a pas sion for nature and the outdoors. At a time when participation in traditional outdoor activities is on the decline and obesity and other health problems, in cluding attention decit dis order, diabetes, asthma and heart disease, are leading to worries that this generation may be the rst to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, the FYCCN offers a bright ray of hope. Thanks to many friends benecent donors, excited partners, passionate volun teers and outstanding lead ership what was a bold idea a few years ago is now a reality. One of those friends is famed marine wildlife art ist and conservationist Guy Harvey. Steve Stock, presi dent of Guy Harvey Inc. and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, recently pre sented a check for $50,000 to the Wildlife Foundation of Florida to help fund FYCCN saltwater shing camps that infuse in youth conser vation ethics and a sense of stewardship related to the sport of shing. We are proud and excit ed to partner with FYCCN in furtherance of our ma rine educational programs and goals, Harvey said. This partnership will help us to teach and develop the next generation of respon sible Florida sportsmen and women. With help such as this, the FYCCN is expanding its network of youth centers to teach kids basic prin ciples of conservation and outdoor ethics. They also stress traditional outdoor recreational skills, includ ing shing, shooting sports, boating, wildlife viewing and more. Visit FYCCN.org for details. The Wildlife Foundation of Florida, the ofcial pub lic-support organization for the FWC, is a major partner in this effort. Its striving to collect donations (Wildlife FoundationofFlorida.com/ FYCC) and help coordinate sponsors has played a sig nicant role in the rapid evolution of the FYCCN. The FYCCN is a true network. The effective ness of more than 225 state wide partners working to gether is creating the base necessary to make a differ ence in the lives of Floridas youth. Parks and recre ation departments, nature centers, volunteer groups, clubs and environmental organizations, private land owners, sporting goods stores and people who want to help with programming all are contributing to the cause. By implementing the network using a huband-spoke structure, the FYCCN includes Wild Out doors centers that offer deep-woods experiences, as well as Near Outdoor sites, which offer experi ences closer to children in their everyday lives. The Wild Outdoors experiences include tradi tional outdoor activities like shing, canoeing, shooting sports, hiking, camping and deep-woods orienteering. The Near Outdoor ex periences may include an urban shing pond or pier, archery in the schools, a local birding competition or a habitat program being taught in the schools. The key to its successful implementation is its effec tive partnering with local, urban-based programs and assisting them in offering traditional outdoor pursuits connected with conserva tion. Making these connec tions with existing, suc cessful youth programs, school systems, clubs, churches and youth-ori ented groups interested in traditional outdoor pursuits and conservation provides instant access to kids. Many places in Florida offer youth the opportunity to go shing, hunting, hik ing, boating and wildlife viewing, FYCCN director Rae Waddell said. We want to work with these sites to expand their reach through the knowledge, training and resources that are available through FYCCN. Waddells leadership was recognized by the Florida Wildlife Federation, which awarded her its Conserva tion Communicator of the Year Award for 2013. Wad dell was honored for her success in leading the ef fort to reconnect Floridas children with traditional outdoor activities. She has been with the FWC for over 20 years and has worked tirelessly to provide youth with the education and guidance they need to en gage in the great outdoors and safely share experi ences that inspire lifelong support for sh and wildlife conservation. Waddells leadership has helped make the FYCCN a formidable tool in the ght against too much time spent indoors with electronic me dia and too little time spent outdoors with nature. But there is much more to be done, and they need your help to do it. They need: Businesses and organi zations to become partners Property owners and manufacturers to provide sites and resources Volunteers of every age and ability Fundraising support and nancial contributions Join them in providing youngsters the education and guidance they need to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities. Only in that way will they learn to love nature and the great outdoors and be willing to accept stewardship of our precious outdoor heritage in the future. They will be come the next generation that cares. Everyone gets frightened of something or someone from time to time, and animals are no exception. Fear is an emotional response to danger and causes our survival instincts to kick into high gear. Even the most loving and docile of pets can lash out when put in a threatening situation, and the results can often be dangerous. In order to prevent an attack, there are a few things you should always look out for when interacting with any animal. The most important things to recognize are if the dog is staring at you, its lips are pulled back so teeth are showing, and it has a stiff tail pointing upward, said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, Professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. They also tend to be rigid and move slowly. If youve noticed this body language and behavior from the animal, it is best to back away slowly and nd something or somewhere to separate yourself. If you notice that the animal is becoming aggressive, it is best to freeze and avoid direct eye contact, Beaver said. Just like if coming across a bear or other dangerous wild animal, you should never scream and run away or make any sudden movements. Wild animals and pets alike may view you as prey when you run, and it is their instinct to chase after you. Always stand your ground and keep your chest facing them, and your eyes averted. Some general guidelines preventing dog and other animal attacks may seem like basic knowledge, but it is always best for you and the others around you to double check your facts. You should always keep your distance from unfamiliar dogs, despite your urge to pet the unbelievably cute ones. Ask the owner before interacting with their pet, as they usually know if the animal handles strangers well. You should also let the dog sniff you or your hand before petting them. Its best to let them approach you rst. Avoid dogs that are sleeping or eating, as you may startle them and cause them to respond negatively. Hugging an unfamiliar dog is also ill-advised. In dog world, hugging is a dominant expression. Although you relish hugging your own dog, it undoubtedly enjoys it less than you do. Though your own pet might tolerate your innocent hugs, in an unfamiliar or shy dog, they might warrant an unwanted reaction. Dogs, like people, are complex products of genetics, upbringing, training and experiences. Though some breeds might demonstrate traits such as shyness or extroversion more frequently, generalizations are tricky. You can never fully judge an unknown animal by its furry cover and it is always best to be cautious. What if the shy, aggressive dog in question belongs to you? Remember that dogs, like children, have inborn personalities that can be inuenced to a certain extent, but not changed. Dogs are masters at interpreting our facial expressions, body language and vocal inections. Your dog might sense your uncertainty and discomfort and become anxious. If your pet is displaying aggression, fear, or any other troublesome tendencies, consult your veterinarian. Veterinarians can often help these animals or can refer to or consult with a board certied veterinary behaviorist or an appropriate trainer in the community, Beaver said, Though you think it might never happen to you, attacks are more common than many would guess. It is always important to keep in mind when interacting with any unfamiliar pets that though dogs may be mans best friend, the wolf is still their second cousin.

Faith EVENTS I wish wed all be California foils It was my pleasure to take my rst trip to California. I heard many rumors about California and particularly the people there. Overall, my trip was a blessing and the people I met were truly wonderful. I did, however, have an illusion of California burst. You know how it is, you hear a lot about something or someone and much of what you hear you later nd out is not true. One of the rst things I discovered when I got to California was that they are not as progressive as I was led to believe. Everybody thinks California is way ahead of the rest of the country. I found it not to be so. Coming to California from Florida, I discovered California is at least three hours behind Florida. This came as a shock to me. I could not believe people in Florida were ahead of people in California in anything. Truth cannot be denied when faced boldly. Also, I heard interesting rumors about the L.A. Freeway. Believe me, it is really nothing to boast about. The speed limit sign along the freeway said 65 mph. I guess that represents some of the comedy Hollywood is known for. Driving on the freeway, when I was moving, I almost hit 15 mph. For a state so concerned about global warming, they allow their cars to sit on the freeway doing nothing but blowing exhaust into the sky. In the state of Florida, an old geezer will not get in his car unless he can hit 70 mph, along with other things. I must admit those California people on the L.A. Freeway were very friendly indeed and much to my surprise, quite religious. All of them were greeting me in a very husky voice and then pointing me towards heaven. They actually were encouraging me to go to heaven. Of course, in all the anxiety of the L.A. Freeway, they got their ngers mixed up and instead of using the index nger, used another nger. That is beside the point. The important thing is they wanted me to go to heaven. Of course, as I think of it now, maybe they wanted me to go to heaven at that moment! During my visit, friends took me to several Mexican restaurants. For the rst time in my life, I had what is called a taco. How they come up with these names I will never know. An interesting thing about a taco is that whoever prepares it, does not actually prepare it. When my taco came, it was all over my plate. There were little piles of this ingredient and that ingredient and then something folded up on my plate, which was the taco shell. What I was supposed to do was build my own taco. Never having done such a thing in my life, I covertly glanced around to see how my friends were building their taco. I tried to do the same. I got all of the ingredients on my taco shell, rolled it up, folded it and then looked around to see what I was supposed to do next. Is this nger food? Should I be using a fork or a spoon? I noticed everybody at the table picked up their taco as though it was nger food or maybe a sandwich. Actually, I am not sure what a taco really is. Therefore, not to be the odd guy at the table I picked up my taco and took the rst bite. The taco I built was rather cantankerous. As soon as I bit it, all the ingredients in that taco deserted the taco shell and went back to the plate. Now what was I supposed to do? As discreetly as possible, one of my friends at the table slipped me a fork. I do not know if you are supposed to eat a taco with a fork, but I did, so arrest me! On my last day, I went to my hotel front desk to see if I could nd another restaurant in the area for my last meal in California. I told the person at the front desk that I had eaten at some Mexican restaurants and was wondering if she could recommend a nonMexican restaurant in the area. She smiled at me and said, S, seor. She caught me off guard so I spun around but did not see any seniors behind me. I turned back and asked again if she could recommend a non-Mexican restaurant. S, seor. Again, I turned around and as true as I am telling this, there was nobody behind me, especially a senior. Then it dawned on me. She was speaking Spanish. After all, this is California. I understand that Si is the Spanish word for the English word yes. I did not let on, however, but I was slightly offended by her calling me a senior. All she had to do was just say yes, sir. That would have made me happy. It is important to hear but more than important than that to hear the right thing. After all, some of the stuff we hear is not worth hearing let alone repeating. The apostle Paul set this down for us. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith is not based upon any rumor but upon the Word of God. The Rev.

FromtheAssociatesof Store2114 By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Fourth District Representative Matt Gaetz gave the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce a visit during the chambers monthly breakfast meeting on Aug. 22 and spoke on multiple topics. Sen. Don Gaetz, my father, sends his regards, said Gaetz, who is an attorney with the Fort Walton Beach law rm Keefe, Anchors, Gordon and Moyle. I thought Id talk about how far the state has come over the past few years and where were going. Gaetz said he was elected to the House in 2010 and said that quite a bit has changed since then. He is currently running for a seat in the state Senate. We have come a long way since 2010, Gaetz said. When I was elected, Florida, we were really on the rocks. Growth was stagnate, every year more businesses were leaving our state, no new people were coming to the state and we were really concerned because when we have a decline in revenue then we cant do what we need to do to fund our educational system By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY A workshop was held before the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners regularly scheduled meeting on Aug. 27 to discuss Salvation Armys recent announcement that it will no longer provide probation services for Holmes County. What the board will hear is a request to bring the probation services under the management of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners, the judge and the clerk of court, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. Collections made from this service will be more than enough to pay for this program. Whats more is that employees will be transferred so there wont be a need for hiring new employees, and there are some employees that have over 30 years of experience to bring to the table. The only request to the board was to nance the rst three months of the program with an agreement to have the money returned to the county within a 12-month period. We have the money, and its too bad but the Salvation Army is wanting to move on to bigger and better things, Judge Owen Powell said. Were not looking for a handout, and this is not an obligation you have to worry about. Rehabilitation is an important thing to have because its the chance to rehabilitate without the use of the jail. Clerk of Court Kyle Hudson said there was already a location in the courthouse, and this would be a positive change because that would put all of the necessary requirements and aspects of the probation process in one area. The board agreed it would be something to discuss at the next meeting in September, and Goodman said he would have a Salvation Army withdraws probation services HOLMES COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERSSee BOCC A2By MATTHEW BEATON522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Florida residents will get four public hearings to sound off on gamblings future in the state, as lawmakers prepare to craft comprehensive legislation for the industry that will be addressed in next years session. The sole Panhandle hearing will be in Pensacola in November. Meetings also are scheduled for Fort Lauderdale and Lakeland in October and Jacksonville in November. The exact dates of the meetings have not been set. Right now, the Spectrum Gaming Group is working on the second part of a $388,845 study, reviewing the economic impact of gaming on communities. Part one of the study was released July 1, and the nal piece will be out by Oct. 1, giving residents time to review it before the meetings. I believe the hearings will provide the opportunity for people of varying opinions to react to the empirical analysis that the Senate and the House commissioned, and also to provide insights from a community prospective, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, who hopes to attend the Pensacola meeting.Public hearings on gambling scheduled STATE REP.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser as one of the highest performing students in the state, wrote Gaetz. Your achievement in Reading is among the best of all students in all schools in all counties in the state. Your scores stood out brilliantly not only in Holmes County but helped set the standard of academic excellence in Florida. As your Senator, Im so proud of you. You bring honor to your family, your teachers at Poplar Springs School and your community. For fun, Kayleigh loves sports, swimming and playing with her dog, Rosabell. She has a great relationship with and loves all of her teachers, her father said. Her favorite subjects are reading, language arts and art. When she grows up she wants to be a dolphin trainer or possibly a paleontologist. Gaetz would like to hear from law enforcement, local ofcials, religious leaders and economic development representatives. The diverse views would give lawmakers a broad perspective on gamblings effects on various communities and how policy changes could impact them in the future, Gaetz said. Gaetz wants the Legislature to take a comprehensive approach to gaming in the coming session, potentially overhauling the industry, but large bills like that can be tough to pass. Any time one tries to take a holistic or comprehensive approach to a problem, theres a greater burden of proof that the policy change is well thought out, he said. Such large-scale legislation creates greater potential for interest groups and communities to nd something they oppose, Gaetz said. He remains condent Sen. Garrett Richter, RNaples, who chairs a Senate gaming panel, will nd a comprehensive solution if there is one. And lawmakers have some time to get there. As far as I know, the rst word hasnt been written in a proposed bill yet, Gaetz said.Chairman speaksRichtersaid he wants to hear the publics concerns and what they support and oppose on gambling in the state. He said its important to pair the studys objective analysis with the public feedback as lawmakers look to draft a bill. My goal is to continue to build a foundation of information from which to make a good decision for the state of Florida, he said, declining to take a position on expanding gambling. Richtersaid no legislation has been drafted at this point and none will be until the second part of the study is returned. Right now, he has staff reviewing existing statutes. He said he chose the four cities to capture input from each part of the state: Jacksonville for the northeast, Pensacola for the northwest, Lakeland for Central Florida and Fort Lauderdale for South Florida. State Rep. Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City, said hed also try to sit in on the Pensacola hearing and expects proposed legislation will include the creation of a gaming commission, which would have more teeth and structure to oversee the industry. Patronis is staunchly opposed to expanding gambling and has no plans to vote for a bill that only expands it. His vote next year will depend on the legislation, he said. A bill that broadens gambling in some areas, but contracts, or totally halts, it in others would be worth considering. Im convinced the process will have to have some type of compromise language in place to get support from folks like me, he said. Patronis said he has no problem with gambling, but he doesnt want it in his backyard. He said he worries about the ills that accompany it. Im not going to be one of those that wants to expand gambling as we see it in Florida. Just because it exists in Mississippi is not a reason to have it, he said. State Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, hasnt changed her mind on opposing gambling either, but she wants to hear what Floridians have to say on the issue. Im anxious to hear the results of the public hearing, she said, adding she will try to attend the Pensacola meeting. Coley noted the Legislature will need to renegotiate the Seminole compact, which regulates gambling in Seminole territory, because it expires in 2015. Coley acknowledged that gambling is a hot-button issue and will remain that way as the session approaches. Im sure there will be a lot of discussion and debate over the next few months, she said. proposed ordinance ready for the board to approve. The board approved of Sandpath Road Phase II Sidewalk agreement with a vote of 4 to 1, with Commissioner Kenneth Williams voting no. The board also approved of Solid Waste Franchise Agreements with Northwest Sanitation, Household Disposal, Sanders Refuse and Waste Management. The board approved of the litter/recycling technician job description and was informed of a Waste Tire Amnesty event on Sept. 16-20, where each household would be allowed to bring all their old tires to the Holmes County Recycling Center for free disposal. The limit is 20 tires per household and no tractor-trailer tires. For more information, contact Holmes County Recycling Center at 547-0922. The next regularly scheduled meeting is set for 9 a.m. on Sept. 10. and take care of our state workers. In 2010, the unemployment rate in the state of Florida was 11.4 percent and today is 7.1 percent, he said. Thats the second sharpest decline in the unemployment rate in the entire country, he said. In 2010, 400,000 people were on unemployment in Florida, today its down to 250,000 people. Since 2010 the businesses in our state have created 330,000 new private sector jobs. He said if the job market is growing then all of the jobs are more secure. How did we get there, because you know it wasnt an accident since 2010 that weve improved our economy since then and it wont continue automatically, said Gaetz. I think one of the reasons why things got a lot better was because we started getting rid of some of those crazy regulation laws. Back when I was young and I wanted to do something innovative someone would say I couldnt do it because of the APA. The APA, he explained, was the Administrative Procedures Act in the state of Florida. We had over 30,000 rules and regulations on the books, and these were rules and regulations no politician had ever even voted for. These are things that bureaucrats had gone and complicated, and I gured in the state of Florida that we didnt need nine pages of regulations on how big a swimming pool has to be. Since 2010, he said they have repealed and revised over 4,100 of the 30,000 rules and regulations. I think thats how progress is made, Gaetz said. When you kind of peel back the extent to which government is monitoring into peoples lives, it creates an environment where people can make their own decisions. Another reason of the economic growth in Florida, he said, was that instead of raising taxes the state of Florida decided to do budget cuts. We had to make some tough cuts and some of them hurt, but we didnt do like New York state, California or Detroit, Gaetz said. Now were growing and those places are seeing folks leave faster than ever before. I think its really put us on the right path economically. Another area to look at, he said, is the educational system. Im glad to say that we got extra money last year from our growing economy and we took a million dollars and added to our education budget, Gaetz said. Here in Holmes County, you have seen the benet of that. Each school in Holmes County seen an increase last year, and we expect to see even more money this year, not because we have more taxes but because we have more tax payers. If you are interested in watching video of Gaetz a link will be provided at www. bonifaynow.com. Julia Bullington, coordinator for the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, reminded everyone that there were only 40 days until this years Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. We were asked to help get the rodeo back to its glory days, Bullington said. Theyre calling it Rodeo Reboot, and theyre trying to go back to the roots, like back in the 50s when people got excited about the rodeo, and we came together as a community to help celebrate by decorating store fronts, making oats and hanging ags. Weve got between 30,000 and 50,000 people who come into Bonifay for camping, rodeo and parades and we want to welcome them and get them as excited as we are. She said the newest member and owner of The Silver Door, Carla Templeton, had some ideas of having an art contest with the schools competing for the best painted store front window, with the winners being recognized. Well have more details on this project at a later time, and were open for suggestions, Bullington said. Rodeo is coming fast, but its coming along nicely for such a massive job. Were going to track down the exact number of tax inux due to this event so everyone can see just how big of an impact it makes to this area.

Were closed for work days, library director Renae Rountree said. We are getting ready for a new computer system that will be installed in February. The new system is going to save the library $15,000, and in these days of tight governmental budgets, that is a plus. Theyve not told me of any cuts, Rountree said of the coming budget year. One plus for the library budget is the nancial aid which libraries receive from the state of Florida. For each dollar budgeted by the county, we get 50 cents from the state, she said. That means nearly a third of our budget comes from revenue outside of the county. However, the library aid from the state has been controversial in the past, Rountree said. Rountree, who was named the new library director on July 25 by the Board of County Commissioners, has been employed by the library system since 2010 and has a masters degree in library science from Florida State University. I grew up in Cottondale, but my grandparents lived in Chipley, right next to the old library. I used to walk to the library by myself, which was a big thing when I was little, she said. The Jackson County Library also used to run a Bookmobile to the IGA in Cottondale, and Rountree said she used to enjoying visiting the bus to check out books as well. She got her bachelors degree from FSU-Panama City and went on to complete her masters degree online. Having the education quali ed her for the role of library director, and when the job came open earlier this year, she applied. They interviewed me, and I was chosen, she said, I was really excited. She began as an assistant branch manager for the Washington County Public Library, which has branch libraries in Vernon, Wausau and Sunny Hills as well as the main library in Chipley. As library director, Rountree said her primary goal is to increase services to the librarys patrons. I think a lot of people dont realize all the services we have available at the library, she said. Besides the obvious books, the library offers DVDs, audio books, childrens books and e-books. The library also offers a variety of programs such as the summer reading program for adults and children, ACT and SAT prep classes, proctored college exams and even Tai Chi classes. As brick and mortar bookstores continue to disappear, the library becomes more and more important to a community, Rountree said. Washington County has no movie theater, no bookstore, and limited movie rental options, so the county library provides those services and provides them for free. Library staff have also participated in local events such as Trunk or Treat and Legends & Lore at Falling Waters State Park, Rountree said. The library has also hosted concerts in the past, and Rountree plans to showcase more musical talent in the future. I want to have more services and events for the public, Rountree said. I want people to see that we offer more than just books. By HOLMES COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENTSpecial to Times-Advertiser HOLMES COUNTY Public Works Department has continued to keep the roads passable for local traf c and emergency vehicles while waiting on the Federal Emergency Management Adminstration to assess the damages and provide nancial help with repairing the roads to pre-disaster condition, according to Holmes County Emergency Management. Holmes County was declared a Federal Disaster Area on Aug. 2 for public assistance. All dirt roads have been affected by the excessive heavy rainfall amounts since July 2. We ask that you please be patient on the road conditions until FEMA can inspect them and write a scope of work to include not only repairing the roads but to include mitigation projects that will restore them better than before, Director of Emergency Management Wanda Stafford said. FEMA is currently working on the City of Bonifay and the Town of Noma and will start on the County roads tentatively on Sept. 9.

Your writer let the important month for the birthdays of people in his life slip right through his ngers without any mention of anyone with birthdays in the month of August. In this rst September column, an effort will be made to honor August birthdays and add two more birthday people to the already long list. Others people with August birthdays, who have not been left out in the long history of this writing, will be recognized. First of all, ole Perry Wells, the Prattler, celebrated his 86th milestone on Aug. 24 with numerous beautiful cards of expressions from well wisher over a wide area of the country, and especially readers of Perrys Prattle. My former roommate, Sammie Ray Young, a Clewiston, Fla., native, and I have maintained a fairly close contact throughout the more than 60 years since my departure from the University of Florida. He was the rst to respond to the recent birthday of his former roomie, sending his regards all the way from his Silver Spring, Md., home of more than 40 years. Sammie is still struggling with the loss of his wife, Jeanne, who passed away March 15, 2012. From Flat Rock, N.C., a card was received from 98year-old, Mary Hiley Koru Remington, a Chipley native whom I know so well but have never personally met. Her greetings included the personal notation: Dear Perry, I am still subscribing to the Washington County News so I can enjoy your Prattle M. Those who own the Heritage of Washington County Book are missing a treat if they have not taken the time to turn to pages 311 and 312 and read the three installments of this ladys long and interesting life and her humble beginnings. Closer home, an early greeting card was received from friend, Randall P. Roberts, a Bonifay native who joined the Prattler in graduating from in the School of Business Administration, University of Florida, on Feb. 2, 1952. We, too, have kept in contact, especially in the past eight years since the death of his beloved wife, Florence, a loss he is continuing to deal with. A quick review of Happy Birthday Greeting Cards reveals at least 15 additional ones were received. An untold number of telephone calls and emails should also be mentioned. One of the new people added to the Aug. 24 birthday list include my kinsman, Frank Lee, the son of John D. Lee and Robbie Yates Lee. While awaiting the arrival of the fourth printing of the Heritage Book, I encountered Frank in Freds in Bonifay. I told him of the books expected arrival date. A contact with him resulted in an immediate sale. He, along the hundreds of other owners, have told me of their enjoyment of this chronicle of history. Many of my readers know that Paul Davidson Jr. owns and operates Main Street Produce in Chipley. They should also know Paul was recently honored by the Florida Agriculture Extension Service for his contribution to the eld of Agriculture with his business and his actual farm experience as well. Pauls wife, LeAnn Clenney Davidson, ARNPC, is associated with Family Health Care in Chipley. Recently, I learned her father, the Rev. John Clenney, who passed away a few months ago, was born Aug. 24, 1937, making him 10 years younger than me. I only met her dad once, and at the time he was pastor of a Baptist Church in Ebro. He also served other churches, including one in Port St. Joe. Joey Nichols, Chipley businessman, enjoys an Aug. 24 birthday, and he is standing by awaiting Cousin Perry to mention his name. Joey recently lost his father, Q. L. Nichols, in death. Others with Aug. 24 birthdays include Annie Myrel Collins Frame, Pauline Steverson Farmer and her twin sister, Catherine Steverson Owens, Ralph E. Harris, Charlie Hilton, Bay County Attorney, the late Judge W. L. Fitzpatrick and others who may have slipped off my memory board. age and birthdays have became part of my conversation with neighbor and friend, Bill Webb, who is one of those who brought the Dixie Lily Milling Company to Chipley in 1947. Bill Webb always remembers that his birthday is two days prior to mine and that he two years older than me. So, Happy Birthday Greetings are in order for Bill Webb, who turned 88 on Aug. 22! Bill and wife, Sybil, are always ready to support worthy causes in the area, and he knows to reach for his billfold, especially at Watermelon Festival time. My brother, Jim Wells, is an Aug. 21 birthday boy with our brother, Clyde Wells, having his one week earlier, Aug. 14. All of this seems of more importance to me as Jim and I get older and in view of the fact that we lost Clyde on Feb. 2, 1990. Hester only had two nieces and two nephews on the Lucas side of her family. The children of her brother, Dan Lucas and wife, Ruth, both have Aug. 28 birthdays. Scott arrived on Aug. 28, 1963, and his sister, Shelia, joined the family on Aug. 28, 1968. Adding to the list is Scotts wife, Donna, who has an Aug. 29 birthday. I dont think I have ever missed acknowledging the birthday of a special lady, Bess Yates Harrell. She celebrated her 95th birthday on Aug. 10. Bess is a resident of the Third Floor in the Northwest Florida Community Hospital, and I have to ashamedly admit that I have not made a visit, visit with her. I hope to make amends soon! Some nieces, nephews, cousins and even grandchildren, are being left out of this tribute and I ask forgiveness for that. Look for more birthday recognition for September. See you all next week. I cant believe that I have been turning out an article a week for more than seven years, but sometimes the creative juices stop. When I am experiencing writers block or just unable to come up with a subject for my Happy Corner, perusing the Heritage of Holmes County history or an old copy of The Holmes County Advertiser usually brings something to mind. This week I came across a copy of the Nov. 27, 1975, Advertiser. Though 1975 doesnt seem so long ago to me, a glance at the content of the paper tells me things have changed a lot in the ensuing years. The grocery advertisements are a quick reminder that we are not living in 1975. For example, The Piggly Wiggly advertised 5 pounds of sugar for 78 cents while Bonifay IGA had it for 68 cents. This Saturday, Piggly Wiggly has 4 pounds for $1.99, which is a good buy, and I will stock up a supply for my continuing jellymaking. In 1975 a pound of Chase and Sanborn coffee was 98 cents. The last time I noticed, a pound of ground coffee was around $7. Campbells Tomato soup was 17 cents, ve pounds of our was 58 cents and a 14ounce package of sh sticks was 88 cents. Well, that is how we were able to rear three children on a teachers salary. In the military news, Robert F. Henry and Max Farmer completed a seven-week basic eld artillery course at the U.S. Army Training Center at Fort Sill, Okla. Both Henry and Farmer are 1975 graduates of Holmes County High School. Private Ronald F. Marschka, former Vernon High School student, completed recruit training at Paris Island, S.C., and will be stationed at Camp Lejune, N.C., for advanced training. Army Specialist Kenneth Tate has been assigned to the 6th Infantry, Berlin Brigade, Berlin, Germany. Bonifay had a local radio station, WBGC, located in Chipley. They were having a favorite disc jockey contest, and those submitting a vote will be in line to win a turkey. New homes by M. Walding Construction Co. in Pineview Estates near Jellystone Park were advertised by Fish Realty. Three-bedroom brick homes with 1 baths on half-acre lots were going at $19,800. Closing costs were under $300, and 100 percent nancing was available. Who remembers Jellystone Park? There was a nice swimming pool and clubhouse with a camp ground on Son-in-law Road. The camp ground now operates under the name of Florida Springs; the pool has been lled in, and the clubhouse once used for an assisted living is now a private residence. In the 50 years ago column, a 1925 city council special session passes a sidewalk ordinance over the objections of Mayor Ban ll. He took an active part in the discussion arguing strongly against the passage of the ordinance. Bonifay doesnt need sidewalks any more than they need re in hell, declared the mayor, somewhat heatedly. The explosion brought a round of laughter, but when the roll call vote came, every member of the council voted to pass the measure. In another 50 years ago item, Holmes County housewife, Mrs. Andrew Williams, last week sold a ock of 11 young turkeys weighing 86 pounds. She received 25 cents a pound making her return $21.50. In the 25 years ago column, the Bonifay Singing Society held the rst sing and business session. R. J. Colvin was elected chairman, Brother Henry Mears, vice chairman, Miss Norma Jean Hathaway, secretary-treasurer, Monroe Williams and Mrs. Homer Howell, arranging committee, and Mrs. B.J. Martin, pianist. I remember attending some of those singings at the Holmes County Courthouse as a teenager. I also remember attending Friday night gospel singings in the homes of some of the participants. Some of those were the homes of Mr. and Mrs. B.J. Martin, Mr. and Mrs.Tobe Retherford, Mr. and Mrs. Code Ross and we (the Wells family) also hosted some of them in our home. Looking back in the Advertiser brings back a lot of memories. Thanks to the then editor and publisher, Orren Smith and wife Dianne Williams Smith for carrying on the family tradition. Their daughter, Stephanie, is now associated with the Washington County News/ Holmes County TimesAdvertiser, continuing the family tradition. During these rainy days, I think we have assumed time stood still, but now we realize that was not so. The summer is about gone, and September is here. Schools back in session. Soon it will be Rodeo time, and the holidays will follow too quickly. These old news stories remind us how eeting time really is. PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Old advertisers provide material for Happy CornerSPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERA younger Perry Wells is shown in this 1989 picture, along with his dad, Hugh Wells. This was at Watermelon Festival time. The dad was 84 and son, Perry, was 62.August brings lots of memories and birthdays Of cials announced recently that the Florida Senate will host a series of four public hearings this fall to seek public input on the future of gambling in the state. They will be in conjunction with the release of the second part of an outside study commissioned by the Legislature to examine the impact of gaming. Thats the prelude to what is expected to be the blockbuster issue in the 2014 legislative session: whether to expand casino gambling. However, lawmakers also should clean up some obstacles and inconsistencies in the regulation of already established gaming operations many of which could use a lifeline. As reported by The News Heralds Matthew Beaton, revenue from betting on live greyhound races at the track in Ebro fell 70 percent the last seven years. That includes a drop of 9.6 percent last year. Ebro is not alone live greyhound betting revenue in Florida fell by 5.8 percent last year. Thoroughbred racing has suffered an even steeper decline, and jai-alai has all but disappeared. Ebro and other parimutuels have supplanted some of that lost racing revenue by offering other forms of gambling, such as poker rooms. But state law requires greyhound tracks to conduct a minimum number of races each year if they also have other forms of gaming. That can range from 100 performances all the way to 394; Ebros required minimum is 167 (a performance consists of at least eight live races). In most cases, thats too many races chasing too few customers. Why should tracks go to the expense of providing a product that a declining number of people want to buy? For that matter, why should dogs be forced to run for little pro t? Thats the hook that has made allies out of opponents. Groups such as GREY2K USA that oppose greyhound racing on animal welfare grounds they believe the dogs are treated cruelly and exploited would welcome a reduction in races (and eventually their elimination). Although track owners such as Ebros Stocky Hess defend their treatment of the dogs, they also support having the freedom to hold as few races as they want. Dog racing may not completely disappear, but the tracks economic future clearly lies in expanding into other forms of gambling. That is harder to do when the state binds their hands on race days. Tying poker to greyhounds makes no logical sense. One doesnt burnish the credentials of the other. Previous attempts to pass legislation decoupling the two forms of gaming have failed. But with momentum building to craft comprehensive gaming reform in Florida next year, the time is ripe to nally get over the hump and give the racing industry and its opponents what they want. Once that happens, lawmakers can address efforts by Ebro and others to expand into other forms of casino gambling.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5By SCOTT CARROLL522-5280|@scottyknoxville SCarroll@pcnh.com MARIANNA University of South Florida researchers began exhuming human remains of more than 50 students at the former Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna on Saturday morning. Its the rst of several excavations USF researchers have planned this year at the shuttered reform school, where over several decades, dozens of students were allegedly beaten, tortured and sexually abused, according to some former students, who also said they believe other students were killed at the boys school, which was once the largest of its kind in the country. Forensic anthropologist Erin Kimmerle, lead researcher in the project, said she hopes to have four to six graves fully excavated by Tuesday. Researchers had already determined Saturday that some of the remains were wrapped and buried in cofns. They believe the cofns were constructed in the carpentry shop on the Dozier School campus. Researchers will use the remains to construct a biological prole that includes the age, sex and ancestry of the deceased. Its everything about you that we can tell from your biology, and that gives us a picture of who the person was, she said. From there, researchers will cross-reference a list of Dozier students, then compare DNA samples to conrm the identity. Unidentied remains will be reburied on the Dozier School campus with a casket and marker. Skeletonized remains will be examined for fractures and other damage to determine if violence had taken place. But whether those conclusions can be made depends on the preservation of individual remains, Kimmerle said. Researchers believe the burial site contains the bodies of black Dozier School students, and suspect another campus burial for white students exists. The school was segregated until 1968. Kimmerle said Saturday that researchers likely wont be able to conrm a separate burial site for white students until sometime this winter. Several former Dozier School students and their relatives stopped by the campus Saturday morning to speak with reporters and USF ofcials. They described being beaten at a white concrete shed on campus known as The White House, where students were allegedly taken to be physically punished. School ofcials primary tool in the punishments, many former students have said, was a leather strap with a wooden handle. Johnny Lee Gaddy, 67, said Saturday he was beaten with the strap until he was bleeding like a hog. Other former students have said they were whipped until they passed out. They had no heart for children, no compassion for children, Gaddy said. Gaddy was sent to the reform school in the 1960s for truancy, as was 68-yearold Richard Huntly. Huntly said Saturday that he, too, was regularly beaten for behavior ranging from ghting to disobedience. Other beatings, he said, seemed to occur at random. I was just scared to death during that time, Huntly said. Huntly and Gaddy were with a group of former Dozier School students who believe they should receive nancial restitution for their years of physical labor at the school, which was owned and operated by the state. The school made slaves out of us, Huntly said. He and other students regularly cut timber and sugar cane, and operated tractors. During one instance of such outdoor labor, Huntlys toe was severed in an accident. Another former Dozier school student, 67-year-old Roger Kiser, stood outside the schools razor-wire fence on Saturday and said hes become a little numb to his experience at the school. Ill never forget being beaten at The White House, he said. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet voted earlier this month to allow USF to exhume the bodies. The project has received $190,000 in funding from the state and a $423,528 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. Researchers have one year to exhume, identify and rebury human remains, as well as locate additional burials at the school. OurMichigan friendcaught thisbeautifulRed Grouper!Comesee ustoday!

SPORTS ASection Wednesday, September 4, 2013 Page 6By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com VERNON The Chipley Tigers dominated the Vernon Yellow Jackets 28-13 in the season opener Friday at Vernon. The weather was extra steamy and lightning crackled to the north and east, but the rain held off as the two Washington County teams played a game often stymied by cramps and yellow ags. The Yellow Jackets had trouble getting outside of their own 10-yard mark during their rst four possessions, but the next time Vernon got the ball they were more calm and got some yardage. The Jackets drew rst blood when senior running back Brandon Malloy scored from the 6-yard line with 10:20 left to play in the rst half. Aaron Bowers kick was good for the extra point. Junior Bradley Hall nabbed a screen pass from senior quarterback Jordan Finch and scampered 40 yards to score two minutes after Vernon got on the board. Senior running back Kobe McCrarys PAT added 2 to make it 8-7 going into the half. McCrary was Chipleys go-to guy Friday for yardage. Not only did he score the only PAT of the game, he ran 34 yards just seconds into the second half to get the Tigers a 14-7 lead. A Vernon safety at 7:07 bumped the Chipley lead up to 16-7, and junior running back Wyatt Brock capped a 60-yard drive by scoring from 4 yards out ve seconds into the nal quarter. The PAT try was no good, but the Tigers had a 22-7 edge. Vernon was unable to get past the line off scrimmage on their next possession, and when Chipley got the ball again, it went straight to McCrary, who broke out on the rst down and scrambled 23 yard before the Vernon defenders caught him. Junior Darren Stewart added 12 yards, and Brock earned 5 more, moving the Tigers to the Vernon 30 before the ball went over to the Yellow Jackets on downs. Three plays in, Vernon fumbled the ball away and the Tigers took the drive back up where they left off, just inside the Yellow Jackets 30. Junior running back Carlon Smith was good for 5 yards, then McCrary ran 23 yards to the end zone. With 1:06 left to play, Malloy found the end zone one more time to give the Vernon squad 6 more points. Vernon travels to West Gadsen on Friday, while Chipley has no game scheduled for Friday. By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Two volleyball teams with their eyes on the future got a good look at their present Thursday night. A senior-less Chipley squad cruised in the nal two games to defeat host North Bay Haven 25-21, 23-25, 25-12, 25-11 in a nondistrict volleyball match. The visiting Tigers (2-0) reached the Region 1-1A nals last year, but they will play without a single senior on their team this fall. The lack of seniors didnt leave Chipley punchless against the Buccaneers, however. The Tigers showcased their repower at the net and eventually wore down North Bay Haven (0-2) inside a sweltering, humid gym that had players and spectators alike sweating profusely. Chipley junior Kyli Miner said the Tigers recognize they dont have any seniors leading the way, but they have a talented crop of underclassmen on the roster that can contribute at the net or in the back row. Weve got a lot of freshmen who have a lot of talent, and were working hard, Miner said. Were trying to get our record to 18-0 and go all the way. After Chipley outlasted the Buccaneers to win the rst game, NBH rallied late to erase a 21-18 de cit in the second game. NBH grabbed a 24-23 lead with a Jasmine Bogere kill, and a carry following a Haley Byrd serve allowed the Buccaneers to capture the second game. We really showed what were going to be, NBH coach Shana Peeples said of her players performance in the second game. We showed what were capable of. We fought with a lot of heart, and they gave it all they had. Winning games, let alone matches, is an important step in the maturation of an NBH program that won one match last year and is playing with seniors for the rst time this season. The Buccaneers, who beat Bozeman in a preseason match that doesnt affect their record, have three seniors on the roster: twin sisters Jasmine and Phrieda Bogere and Alexis Winsett. I feel like this is the best North Bay Haven team weve had to date, said Peeples, a former Mosley and Gulf Coast standout who is in her fourth season as head coach. Once it starts clicking as a team, were going to be very competitive. The Tigers put the match away with a dominant performance in the nal two games. Miner sparked a 100 run in the third game with a kill and a block on the rst two points of that spurt. Freshman Gianna Mathews capped the run with a pair of kills that gave Chipley a 15-7 lead. NBH was limited to no more than two consecutive points for the rest of the match as the Tigers took over. Chipley ran away with the nal game behind an 8-0 run that gave the Tigers an 18-7 advantage.

SPORTS ASection By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com BONIFAY Aside from a few notable miscues, Arnold looked very little like a team in rebuilding mode Friday night. The Marlins overwhelmed Holmes County on both sides of the ball in a game more lopsided than the score would indicate, posting a 35-0 victory at Memorial Field in a nondistrict game that marked the season opener for both programs. The Marlins, a Class 5A school that nished 2-7 last year, proved too mighty for Holmes County, a Class 1A program also reloading this year. Arnold led 7-0 at halftime before taking control in the second half. The Marlins swarmed Justice Bice in the backeld for a safety and a 9-0 lead early in the second half. Arnold quickly boosted its lead to 16-0 with Torri Cottons 19-yard sprint to the end zone with 10:17 remaining in the third quarter. Arnolds Connor MacKenzie blocked a punt out of the end zone to increase Arnolds lead to 18-0 with 7:44 left in the third quarter. Ninety seconds later, Marlin quarterback Cody Saunders located Dario Batiste open in the corner of the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown pass and a 25-0 advantage. Marlins place-kicker Austin Peffers contributed with a 29-yard eld goal with just over 10 minutes remaining for a 28-0 lead. MacKenzie, who had a punt return for a touchdown called back earlier in the game because of a penalty, scored on a 30-yard punt return with 6:44 left to provide the nal margin and a running clock. Saunders scored the Marlins rst touchdown of the season with a 1-yard sneak into the end zone for a 7-0 lead with 1 minute, 22 seconds left in the rst quarter. That scoring opportunity was provided when Arnolds defense forced a fumble and recovered it at the Holmes County 14-yard line. Saunders scored seven plays later. The Blue Devils responded with a 77-yard burst by Chad Leavins on the rst play of their next drive. Darcel Johnsons tackle of Leavins at Arnolds 2-yard line saved a touchdown, however, and the Marlins forced Holmes County to lose a total of 6 yards on the next four plays from scrimmage to turn away the threat and preserve the shutout. That goal-line stand punctuated a dominant performance by Arnolds defense, particularly the defensive line, in the rst half. The Blue Devils gained 1 yard or fewer on 13 of 26 plays before halftime. Outside of the one long run, Leavins otherwise was limited to 0 yards on his other 10 carries in the rst two quarters. Arnold running back Torri Cotton amassed 76 yards on six carries in the rst half, but he had two long touchdown runs negated by holding penalties. The rst was a 62-yard scamper midway through the opening quarter. The other was a 66-yard romp early in the second quarter. An Arnold penalty also spoiled Darcel Johnsons 43-yard punt return for a touchdown in the second half.

A8 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Superintendent of Holmes County Schools Eddie Dixon gave the latest updates for the schools during the Bonifay Kiwanis Clubs Aug. 21 meeting, which included the rst day of school and the latest trip to Tallahassee. We had a great start to the new school year, Dixon said. Technology has become a wonderful thing. We now have a system that can call 3,000 at once to let them know that schools were canceled Monday due to the weather. He said there were 70 new students to attend Holmes County schools this year, which equals half a million dollars in additional funding from the state. It seems that people are moving back now that the economy is steadily improving, Dixon said. There are also those coming in from Washington and Jackson County, especially since Jackson County has implemented their new uniform policy. Weve got more students coming into the county than leaving. He expounded on their recent presentation in Tallahassee towards building the new Bonifay middle and elementary schools. We went to Tallahassee last Thursday, met with representatives from the Governors Ofce and the Department of Education and gave a 30-minute presentation, Dixon said. That night, we found out we were approved to be put on the budget for the next year. We still need to be approved by legislature for funding, so any good word we can send that way would be very helpful. He said he has noticed a great deal of support. What amazes me is how the community has come together for this project, Dixon said. Weve got stacks and stacks of letters of support. Were going to work hard to get this project. Dixon also said there is no funding to help Bonifays middle and elementary schools. The middle school, which was the old high school, was built in the s and still has clay plumbing, most of which has already collapsed and can no longer support the schools capacity, Dixon said. The district has done a fantastic job maintaining these schools for so long, but its come down to something beyond a simple x. Both schools are just worn out from the inside, and after close examination, the state said they would not help fund repairs, saying funding would only be available to rebuild from the ground up. He added Bonifay does not have a special needs shelter. The only one we have is in Poplar Springs in the west end of the county, he said. We want to build on the current Holmes County Fair Grounds. Well work something out with the fair, but it would be in the best interest of the schools to have all three schools grouped together in one area. Dixon said they would all be located on one side of the railroad tracks, and it would be on the same side as all of the emergency response teams, such as re, police, ambulance and hospital. He said the structure of the building would be built with safety in mind. The old high school and elementary school were built with a wide open structure during a time when safety wasnt an issue and they were more interested in a more pod structure, Dixon said. The new school is designed to protect against outside threats. For example, the elementary school students will be able to play safely in a courtyard surrounded by buildings. He said portions are built to withstand a category ve hurricane, but hes pushing for additional funding to have the whole building fortied as well. A water tower would be put in to help supply water to the new water sprinkler system in case of a re, Dixon said. This will also help the city with a new water tower, which will also help increase water pressure in that section of the city. During question and answers someone asked if the funding included an auditorium for the new schools and Dixon replied that they only fund high school auditoriums. Dixon said if all goes well the construction of the new schools will start as soon as October 2014 and could be completed as soon as the rst day of school for the 2015-16 school year. Were also looking into building new facilities in Ponce de Leon so we can get rid of the portables, Dixon said. I cant tell you how excited we are of the progress being made in Holmes County and how very blessed we are.

Upand-coming local Christian rap artist, Daniel Evans, held a performance on Aug. 17 at Dove Christian Supply Bookstore in Enterprise, Ala. and signed CDs for customers. Evans, from Chancellor, Ala., is described as a promising hip-hop artist whose singing roots originated from his local church. Daniel Evans has been singing his praises to God using old-school hiphop beats combined with modern crunk for that contemporary vibe. Evans said he grew up in Fort Walton Beach but now has a home in Chancellor. I started writing songs at a young age, I accepted the Lord at a young, but always liked rap, so I deciding to start writing Christian rap, because I felt that God could use me to reach people through it, Evans said. I quit doing it for a while, because I got out of church for a while and got depressed and discouraged because I thought I was a failure to myself, God and others. At one point in time I did not thank go can still use me I was inspired to write this song called, Nothing Going to Stop Me, and started back writing because my Dad said you use to rap, and you use to tell people about The Lord, Evans said. That motivated me to start back writing, going back to church, rapping and telling people about the Lord as well as getting back in the studio and record. He said the thing that keeps him going is his mother and his familys prayers. Its the joy and the happiness I bring all my family friends when they listen to my music or see me perform, Evans said. And its the doors God keep opening for me to get my message out as Im just His willing vessel, but it also brings me joy to rap and its something I love to do.

Payne says taking the time to separate your recycled goods can help save you money in the long run as well as help save the planet. People would be amazed at how much they could save in garbage fees if theyd only recycle, Payne said. I have several people who dont have garbage collection because they take their recycled items here and what garbage is left is so small that they can collect it over a month and just take it to the dump for a small fee. The recycling center charges businesses and schools to pick up recycled items, but it is free of cost for the public to bring in their recycled items. Theres several items that people just dont think about as being free recycled items, Payne said. They think of the standard paper, plastic and aluminum, but it also includes metal appliances, car batteries and used oil. Other items can be recycled as well, but for a fee. Its actually not that much to recycle certain items, she said. Weve actually managed to keep the same fees since 2009, and thats really awesome for our area. What many dont know is if they bring ink cartridges in they are recycled in the sense that they are donated to non-pro t organizations, Payne said. I also go through and collect soup labels and box tops to give to the local schools. Payne is in the process of registering for a grant writing class to nd ways of getting additional funding for the recycling center to expand their services and increase community participation and education. I have more older people who recycle, and I think thats mostly because they are on a xed income and need to save money, she said. The majority of younger people that recycle are from areas who mandate it. I foresee the state of Florida mandating recycling in the future. Holmes County Recycling Center will be hosting a Waste Tire Amnesty event on Sept. 16 through Sept. 20, where each household would be allowed to bring all their old tires to the Holmes County Recycling Center for free disposal. The limit is 20 tires per household and no semi tires. For more information, contact Holmes County Recycling Center at 547-0922.

Though they may not be in classrooms with school teachers, they are learning and developing new skills every day. It is helpful for parents to understand when a child should be reaching their developmental milestones. Developmental milestones refer to when children acquire a new skill or accomplishment, whether it is a rst tooth or the rst time the baby rolls over or says their rst word. Every state has a formal system for early intervention to identify children who may be experiencing developmental delays and to provide early intervention services. In Florida, that system is called Early Steps a statewide early intervention system that offers services to eligible infants and toddlers (birth to thirtysix months) with signicant delays or a condition likely to result in a developmental delay. The local Early Steps ofce in Panama City serves children and families in the six county region that covers Holmes, Jackson, Washington, Bay, Calhoun and Gulf Counties. Wendy Morgan, the Program Manager for Early Steps, explained, Each child grows at an individual pace, but research shows that a childs rst three years are the most important time for learning. So parents who get help early put their children on the right path to learn and develop at their full potential. According to Early Steps, parents are a childs rst teachers. They are the rst to know their childs needs and strengths and are best at providing daily support during everyday routines. So what should a parent do if they are concerned that their child may not be developing as they should? What if they are concerned about the childs motor skills like crawling or walking or communication skills like speech? Morgan explained the process of referring a child to Early Steps. Referrals often come from pediatricians, other community agencies like Healthy Families or Healthy Start, or from child care centers, but parents can self refer their children as well. Morgan went on to explain the philosophy of Early Steps, which believes in partnership with families and provides families and caregivers with training and support to increase learning opportunities for their children. Family members learn how to use everyday routines like meals, bath time, dressing, play and outings to encourage their childs development of skills and independence. Early Steps services are provided at no charge to the family. The process begins with a screening and evaluation of the childs development. If the childs scores indicate a delay, an individualized family support plan is developed and services are put in place. Services can include speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or early intervention. Early Steps encourages parents who have concerns about their childs development, to talk with their childs pediatrician or other health care provider. For more information, contact Early Steps directly at 747-5411. Family Involvement important in Early StepsSpecial to ExtraDOTOTHAAN Landmark Parks annual Low Country Boil will take place at 6 p.m. on Sept. 19 in the Stokes Activity Barn.

Four other Florida College System (FCS) institutions made the list: North Florida Community College, Miami Dade College, Valencia College and South Florida State College. On behalf of the faculty and staff of Chipola College, we are pleased to be recognized for offering quality instruction, said Chipola President Dr. Gene Prough. I am very proud of our faculty and support personnel who provide a quality learning environment for our students. This honor recognizes the Florida College Systems commitment to both access and high-quality education, said FCS Chancellor Randy Hanna. I commend our colleges for their ongoing efforts to serve the needs of our state. Using data from the Community College Survey of Student Engagement and U.S. Department of Education, Washington Monthly rates community colleges in a number of areas, including collaborative learning, student effort, academic rigor, student-faculty interaction and support for learning. Retention, graduation and completion rates are also factored into the rankings. Chipola had a rst-year retention rate of 65.9 which was fth among the top 50 colleges. Chipola was eleventh in the Three-year graduation/transfer rate at 57.9 percent. This number indicates the percentage of students who graduate or transfer to another college within three years of rst enrolling. Chipola offers the Bachelor of Science Degree, the Associate in Arts Degree, the Associate in Science Degree and Workforce Development programs. According to Washington Monthlys editors, We designed the Washington Monthly college rankings to embody the American higher education compact at the institutional level. Instead of lauding colleges for closing their doors to all but an elite few, we give high marks to institutions that enroll low-income students, help them graduate and dont charge them an arm and a leg to attend. These rankings are especially important because they highlight the systems mission of providing access to low-cost, high-quality education and job training, said Chancellor Hanna. I am extremely proud of all of our colleges for helping prepare Floridians for high-skill, high-wage jobs. For more information, view Washington Monthlys rankings at washingtonmonthly.com. Special to ExtraTALLAHASSEE The Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (FYCCN), whose goal is to create the next generation that cares about sh and wildlife conservation, is on a roll. This bold initiative, sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), is dedicated to providing a statewide network of sustainable places where youth and their families can participate in outdoor activities that inspire conservation stewardship and a love of our fabulous natural resources. The FYCCN is about helping kids develop a passion for nature and the outdoors. At a time when participation in traditional outdoor activities is on the decline and obesity and other health problems, including attention decit disorder, diabetes, asthma and heart disease, are leading to worries that this generation may be the rst to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, the FYCCN offers a bright ray of hope. Thanks to many friends benecent donors, excited partners, passionate volunteers and outstanding leadership what was a bold idea a few years ago is now a reality. One of those friends is famed marine wildlife artist and conservationist Guy Harvey. Steve Stock, president of Guy Harvey Inc. and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, recently presented a check for $50,000 to the Wildlife Foundation of Florida to help fund FYCCN saltwater shing camps that infuse in youth conservation ethics and a sense of stewardship related to the sport of shing. We are proud and excited to partner with FYCCN in furtherance of our marine educational programs and goals, Harvey said. This partnership will help us to teach and develop the next generation of responsible Florida sportsmen and women. With help such as this, the FYCCN is expanding its network of youth centers to teach kids basic principles of conservation and outdoor ethics. They also stress traditional outdoor recreational skills, including shing, shooting sports, boating, wildlife viewing and more. Visit FYCCN.org for details. The Wildlife Foundation of Florida, the ofcial public-support organization for the FWC, is a major partner in this effort. Its striving to collect donations (WildlifeFoundationofFlorida.com/ FYCC) and help coordinate sponsors has played a signicant role in the rapid evolution of the FYCCN. The FYCCN is a true network. The effectiveness of more than 225 statewide partners working together is creating the base necessary to make a difference in the lives of Floridas youth. Parks and recreation departments, nature centers, volunteer groups, clubs and environmental organizations, private landowners, sporting goods stores and people who want to help with programming all are contributing to the cause. By implementing the network using a huband-spoke structure, the FYCCN includes Wild Outdoors centers that offer deep-woods experiences, as well as Near Outdoor sites, which offer experiences closer to children in their everyday lives. The Wild Outdoors experiences include traditional outdoor activities like shing, canoeing, shooting sports, hiking, camping and deep-woods orienteering. The Near Outdoor experiences may include an urban shing pond or pier, archery in the schools, a local birding competition or a habitat program being taught in the schools. The key to its successful implementation is its effective partnering with local, urban-based programs and assisting them in offering traditional outdoor pursuits connected with conservation. Making these connections with existing, successful youth programs, school systems, clubs, churches and youth-oriented groups interested in traditional outdoor pursuits and conservation provides instant access to kids. Many places in Florida offer youth the opportunity to go shing, hunting, hiking, boating and wildlife viewing, FYCCN director Rae Waddell said. We want to work with these sites to expand their reach through the knowledge, training and resources that are available through FYCCN. Waddells leadership was recognized by the Florida Wildlife Federation, which awarded her its Conservation Communicator of the Year Award for 2013. Waddell was honored for her success in leading the effort to reconnect Floridas children with traditional outdoor activities. She has been with the FWC for over 20 years and has worked tirelessly to provide youth with the education and guidance they need to engage in the great outdoors and safely share experiences that inspire lifelong support for sh and wildlife conservation. Waddells leadership has helped make the FYCCN a formidable tool in the ght against too much time spent indoors with electronic media and too little time spent outdoors with nature. But there is much more to be done, and they need your help to do it. They need: Businesses and organizations to become partners Property owners and manufacturers to provide sites and resources Volunteers of every age and ability Fundraising support and nancial contributions Join them in providing youngsters the education and guidance they need to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities. Only in that way will they learn to love nature and the great outdoors and be willing to accept stewardship of our precious outdoor heritage in the future. They will become the next generation that cares. Everyone gets frightened of something or someone from time to time, and animals are no exception. Fear is an emotional response to danger and causes our survival instincts to kick into high gear. Even the most loving and docile of pets can lash out when put in a threatening situation, and the results can often be dangerous. In order to prevent an attack, there are a few things you should always look out for when interacting with any animal. The most important things to recognize are if the dog is staring at you, its lips are pulled back so teeth are showing, and it has a stiff tail pointing upward, said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, Professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. They also tend to be rigid and move slowly. If youve noticed this body language and behavior from the animal, it is best to back away slowly and nd something or somewhere to separate yourself. If you notice that the animal is becoming aggressive, it is best to freeze and avoid direct eye contact, Beaver said. Just like if coming across a bear or other dangerous wild animal, you should never scream and run away or make any sudden movements. Wild animals and pets alike may view you as prey when you run, and it is their instinct to chase after you. Always stand your ground and keep your chest facing them, and your eyes averted. Some general guidelines preventing dog and other animal attacks may seem like basic knowledge, but it is always best for you and the others around you to double check your facts. You should always keep your distance from unfamiliar dogs, despite your urge to pet the unbelievably cute ones. Ask the owner before interacting with their pet, as they usually know if the animal handles strangers well. You should also let the dog sniff you or your hand before petting them. Its best to let them approach you rst. Avoid dogs that are sleeping or eating, as you may startle them and cause them to respond negatively. Hugging an unfamiliar dog is also ill-advised. In dog world, hugging is a dominant expression. Although you relish hugging your own dog, it undoubtedly enjoys it less than you do. Though your own pet might tolerate your innocent hugs, in an unfamiliar or shy dog, they might warrant an unwanted reaction. Dogs, like people, are complex products of genetics, upbringing, training and experiences. Though some breeds might demonstrate traits such as shyness or extroversion more frequently, generalizations are tricky. You can never fully judge an unknown animal by its furry cover and it is always best to be cautious. What if the shy, aggressive dog in question belongs to you? Remember that dogs, like children, have inborn personalities that can be inuenced to a certain extent, but not changed. Dogs are masters at interpreting our facial expressions, body language and vocal inections. Your dog might sense your uncertainty and discomfort and become anxious. If your pet is displaying aggression, fear, or any other troublesome tendencies, consult your veterinarian. Veterinarians can often help these animals or can refer to or consult with a board certied veterinary behaviorist or an appropriate trainer in the community, Beaver said, Though you think it might never happen to you, attacks are more common than many would guess. It is always important to keep in mind when interacting with any unfamiliar pets that though dogs may be mans best friend, the wolf is still their second cousin.

Faith EVENTSI wish wed all be California foilsIt was my pleasure to take my rst trip to California. I heard many rumors about California and particularly the people there. Overall, my trip was a blessing and the people I met were truly wonderful. I did, however, have an illusion of California burst. You know how it is, you hear a lot about something or someone and much of what you hear you later nd out is not true. One of the rst things I discovered when I got to California was that they are not as progressive as I was led to believe. Everybody thinks California is way ahead of the rest of the country. I found it not to be so. Coming to California from Florida, I discovered California is at least three hours behind Florida. This came as a shock to me. I could not believe people in Florida were ahead of people in California in anything. Truth cannot be denied when faced boldly. Also, I heard interesting rumors about the L.A. Freeway. Believe me, it is really nothing to boast about. The speed limit sign along the freeway said 65 mph. I guess that represents some of the comedy Hollywood is known for. Driving on the freeway, when I was moving, I almost hit 15 mph. For a state so concerned about global warming, they allow their cars to sit on the freeway doing nothing but blowing exhaust into the sky. In the state of Florida, an old geezer will not get in his car unless he can hit 70 mph, along with other things. I must admit those California people on the L.A. Freeway were very friendly indeed and much to my surprise, quite religious. All of them were greeting me in a very husky voice and then pointing me towards heaven. They actually were encouraging me to go to heaven. Of course, in all the anxiety of the L.A. Freeway, they got their ngers mixed up and instead of using the index nger, used another nger. That is beside the point. The important thing is they wanted me to go to heaven. Of course, as I think of it now, maybe they wanted me to go to heaven at that moment! During my visit, friends took me to several Mexican restaurants. For the rst time in my life, I had what is called a taco. How they come up with these names I will never know. An interesting thing about a taco is that whoever prepares it, does not actually prepare it. When my taco came, it was all over my plate. There were little piles of this ingredient and that ingredient and then something folded up on my plate, which was the taco shell. What I was supposed to do was build my own taco. Never having done such a thing in my life, I covertly glanced around to see how my friends were building their taco. I tried to do the same. I got all of the ingredients on my taco shell, rolled it up, folded it and then looked around to see what I was supposed to do next. Is this nger food? Should I be using a fork or a spoon? I noticed everybody at the table picked up their taco as though it was nger food or maybe a sandwich. Actually, I am not sure what a taco really is. Therefore, not to be the odd guy at the table I picked up my taco and took the rst bite. The taco I built was rather cantankerous. As soon as I bit it, all the ingredients in that taco deserted the taco shell and went back to the plate. Now what was I supposed to do? As discreetly as possible, one of my friends at the table slipped me a fork. I do not know if you are supposed to eat a taco with a fork, but I did, so arrest me! On my last day, I went to my hotel front desk to see if I could nd another restaurant in the area for my last meal in California. I told the person at the front desk that I had eaten at some Mexican restaurants and was wondering if she could recommend a nonMexican restaurant in the area. She smiled at me and said, S, seor. She caught me off guard so I spun around but did not see any seniors behind me. I turned back and asked again if she could recommend a non-Mexican restaurant. S, seor. Again, I turned around and as true as I am telling this, there was nobody behind me, especially a senior. Then it dawned on me. She was speaking Spanish. After all, this is California. I understand that Si is the Spanish word for the English word yes. I did not let on, however, but I was slightly offended by her calling me a senior. All she had to do was just say yes, sir. That would have made me happy. It is important to hear but more than important than that to hear the right thing. After all, some of the stuff we hear is not worth hearing let alone repeating. The apostle Paul set this down for us. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith is not based upon any rumor but upon the Word of God. The Rev.
