More and more are becoming interested in the program, Dixon said. They are graded only on the work they have completed. The Holmes District Edgenuity Virtual Program offers online courses to students throughout the county to allow them to work at their own pace, which allows the schools to provide additional courses such as remedial and foreign languages without the need of additional staff. Board member Shirley Owens asked if the number of teachers teaching out of their eld is growing, and Dixon told her it is because of a change in state requirements.Chipley man charged in brothers stabbingStaff ReportCHIPLEY The Chipley Police Department reports the arrest of Shamus Tindol, 39, of Chipley on Jan. 29 after he reportedly stabbed his brother eight times. According to the report, officers with the Chipley Police Department responded to a disturbance call at a residence on Glenwood Avenue in Chipley. Upon arriving, officers found the suspect, Tindol, standing inside the residence along with his brother, who was bleeding from his side. Officers said the two brothers had been involved Holmes County Chamber speaks about serviceBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Coordinator Julia Bullington spoke on services the Chamber provides and gave updates on upcoming events during the monthly Chamber Breakfast on Jan. 23. Bullington said there are a variety of services the Chamber wants to provide local business owners and potential business owners, one of which is that a representative from The Small Business Association visits on a weekly basis for oneon-one sessions with business owners and potential business owners. He lets those who are interested in becoming business owners know if they are ready to invest in building their business or if theres certain steps needed before moving forward, Bullington said. Hes also very good at nding grants if there are grants available for whatever it is you might be doing, especially in the area of agritourism right now; there seems to be a little money out there for that. She said the Chamber also has a counselor who comes from Bay County for veterans. Believe it or not, weve got a quite a few vets in Holmes County who are suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) or other issues, and they need a place to talk in con dence and in quiet, and they can meet here, one on one, Bullington said. Sometimes its and hour or an hour and a half, and sometimes we have the whole family because the whole family is involved in the process. Many small things are also going on in the Chamber of Commerce building from day to day, Bullington said. Phos, as you know, just moved from one building to another, she said. It took a lot of number crunching, a lot of working with one another to move from 1,700 square feet to 20,000 square feet where the bills are going to quadruple and trying to gure out what that was going to take and how much its going to make, how many more people and how much more utilities, and we actually sit down and work it out on a form, and we said we could make this work. She said thats what shes there for. Am I the all-time expert on all this? No, Bullington said. But I do know who to tap, who to talk to and who to reach out for. Holmes County Chamber of Commerce President Mike Alvis said Bullington was only scratching the surface of all she does with the Chamber.

The cost is $65 per couple or $35 per individual, and all proceeds go toward a shelter for victims of Domestic Violence in our community, fundraising chairman Crystal Gery said. Jeans and boots are OK, though a jacket is required. People wonder why we want a shelter here, where they would be close to their abuser, and people dont realize that in order to get away from them right now, they would have to quit their job, pull their child out of school and move away from everyone they know, and we should be supporting them as a community. For more information, call Gery at 768-3739 or Missy Lee 596-3288. For more information on the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, call Bullington at 547-4682. Alvis said. One thing that, we believe, is going to impact this side of the river the biggest to hit Holmes County in a long time and that is the widening of State Road 79, north of I-10. Your Chamber of Commerce is working diligently with the Development Commission, the County Commission and the City of Bonifay to take a very active role in that. He said he just hoped it would come to light soon how all those entities would be coming together. Its coming straight down the middle of downtown, and itll affect almost over half the businesses in this room, Alvis said. As business owners, we need to voice that, and your Chamber of Commerce is that voice. If, in any way, you have an idea, please share. Bullington added that it is also about businesses connecting for a common goal in supporting one another. Its easier to do business with someone that Ive shared bread with, Bullington said. Its easier to do business with someone I know lives in the same community, and I know that were supporting his family with his business because its something thats important to us. She said the upcoming seventh annual Holmes County Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament will be 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 7 at the Dogwood Lakes Golf Course. It is a lot of fun, and I think its the camaraderie that I notice more than anything else, Bullington said. People are just having a good time. Even though youre there as a business and youre trying to impress your clients, youre still having a good time while you promote your company. She said it is $300 per team, which includes golf, breakfast, golf cart rental, the opportunity at a $10,000 hole and an opportunity at $2,000 in cash prizes. Weve added a couple of different things over the years; this year there will be a putting contest, so between your rst nine and your second nine, youre going to have a chance to putt a hole-in-one, and that will be a cash prize.

Teachers who were considered qualied in their eld before the new state requirements are no longer fully qualied and now have to be certied in all the areas of study that they teach in. I assure you, this is an issue that is statewide. Board member Debbie Kolmetz also recommended that all students who received a 5 on their recent FCAT should be recognized. Chairman Rusty Williams also told the board they would be visiting a school in Madison County on Friday, Feb. 7, which is a similar design to the new elementary and middle school to be built next to Holmes County High School. Were going to review the schools structure and function and discuss any possible changes we want to see in our design, Williams said. in a verbal altercation, which quickly turned into a physical altercation. The two men fought in the kitchen area, after which Shamus Tindol displayed a pocket knife and stabbed his brother eight times, according to the report. Police believe alcohol played a role in this incident. Both subjects were taken to the Emergency Room of Northwest Florida Community Hospital, where they were treated for their injuries. Tindol was charged with aggravated battery and domestic violence. The Chipley Police Department asks anyone with any information to call 638-6310 or Crime Stoppers of Washington County at 638-TIPS.

With the cold weather, are you dreaming of summertime already? asked Niki Crawson, Holmes County 4-H agent. School will be out before we know it. No more homework or studying for tests, but that doesnt mean your childs learning has to stop for the next two and a half months. Canoeing, swimming, archery, meeting new friends, marine and environmental science can all be found in one place for one week this summer. 4-H Camp Timpoochee, located on the bay in Niceville, is just waiting to be explored by your child. Holmes County youth, ages 8-12, are eligible to attend 4-H Camp Timpoochee as campers. Youth ages 13 and up are eligible to apply to attend camp as a Camp Counselor or Counselor-inTraining. Youth do not have to be a current 4-H member to attend camp. Youth from Holmes County will camp June 9-13, 2014.

Last week, Donovan made it clear that the 6-foot-10 Walker wont be Kevin Garnett this season. On Monday, the coach insisted Walker wont play like Wilt Chamberlain when he makes his debut tonight against Missouri. But Walker will get on the court for the first time since arriving on campus in mid-December, which should help the thirdranked Gators (19-2, 8-0 Southeastern Conference) as they near the halfway mark of league play and start getting ready for the postseason. The expectations on him as a player are way, way up here, and he cant reach them, Donovan said. He cant. I just want people to know. This is not going to be a guy that youre going to say, Billy, you really, really downplayed this thing. This guy came out and played like Wilt Chamberlain. Its not going to happen. Hes a good player thats got a lot in front of him, a lot of growing and maturing thats got to go on. I really dont know how much he can do. He can go in there and do some really, really good things and really help our team or he could go out there and really be lost in the game and get going too fast and the emotion of the game will overwhelm him. Florida has not made Walker available for interviews. School officials anticipate Walker will answer questions after the game. Donovan gave no indication how much Walker will play against the Tigers (16-5, 4-4), saying it will be predicated on what hes doing to help our team with foul trouble, fatigue and those things. Teammates said Walker is eager to finally get from under the NCAA cloud and off the bench. Hes extremely excited, center Pat Young said. Just think about everything hes gone through. To get to now and its finally here as far as school, things he had to do over the summer, missing the first semester, finally here and going through practice and then not hearing from the NCAA. Its probably a 15 on a scale of 1 to 10 how excited he is right now. A forward from Bonifay in Floridas panhandle, Walker sat out 12 games, or 40 percent of the season, because the NCAA determined he received preferential treatment from five people, including two agents. The NCAA said Walker and people close to him accepted free cellphones and service, airfare, lodging, meals and apparel while he was a prospect. He was ordered to donate the $270 received from the agents to a charity of his choice and serve 80 hours of community service. Walker, who failed to qualify academically and spent the fall taking online classes to gain eligibility, joined the team Dec. 14 and has been practicing since. He is a talented shot-blocker, rebounder and finisher who won the dunk contest at the McDonalds All-American game last year. Since arriving on campus, he has gained about 10 pounds while learning Donovans complex offensive and defensive schemes. But is he ready to make an impact? He is definitely a guy who brings a lot of energy ... as far as running, jumping around, being active and grabbing a bunch of boards, Young said. You shouldnt have too high expectations. This is the guys first college game he gets to play in and well see how he does from there. The Gators could use some help. Forward Casey Prather, the teams leading scorer, has been slowed by a sprained left ankle. And guard DeVon Walker sat out the last game with a hip pointer. Even with both healthy, the Gators have had just eight scholarship players available. Walker makes it nine, adding some much-needed depth and possibly increasing Floridas chances of making another deep run in the NCAA tournament. He can be the best runner in the world, the best jumper in the world and the best rebounder in the world, but if he cant do the things inside the game plan of what we need to get done, then it becomes very difficult to play, Donovan said.Walker to make UF debutCHRIS WALKER

She attends Vernon Elementary School. She has three older sisters Kynley, Meagan and Kendall. Grandparents are Jack and Angia Morris, Virginia Davis Braxton. Dear Editor, My 8-year-old daughter Anna has severe epilepsy. Anna spent most of 2010 hospitalized between Childrens Hospital in Birmingham and Miami Childrens Hospital. At times, Anna was having more than 40 seizures a day despite aggressive treatment. In June 2010, after an extensive evaluation at Childrens Hospital in Birmingham, I received a call from Annas doctor telling me she was unable to determine where the seizures were originating from and we would need to continue with medication treatments. Anna continued to have uncontrolled seizures that required continual hospitalization. It was obvious that the seizures were causing brain damage. At age 4, Anna was regressing. I will never forget what it was like to have to leave my child for her to be lifeighted or transported by ambulance as a result of intractable epilepsy. In August 2010, Anna had another extensive evaluation at Miami Childrens Hospital. It was determined her seizures were originating from the left parietal lobe. Later that month, Anna had brain surgery to remove a portion of the area that was causing the seizures. Within days of the surgery she began having seizures again. Because of the uncontrolled seizures, Anna was own back to Miami Childrens Hospital. At this time, we were advised by Annas doctors she would be paralyzed and unable to talk if they removed any more tissue. Therefore, the focus has been on other alternatives to control her seizures. Anna has taken more than 15 anticonvulsant medications and more than six medications to assist with behavioral control. She currently takes three seizure and two behavioral medications daily. Anna also has a vagus nerve stimulator surgically implanted in her chest. Despite the surgeries and medication, Anna continues to have seizures on a nightly basis. This is an improvement compared to her state of being in 2010. The medication does not come without side effects and the question regarding the long-term effects. Right now, many Floridians are trying to get medical marijuana treatment available in Florida. This would allow parents to treat children affected by illnesses such as Annas with Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is also known as Charlottes Web. CBD is one of the cannabinoids found in cannabis. It is a major constituent of the plant, second to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and represents up to 40 percent in its extracts. Compared with THC, CBD is psychoactive but not intoxicating and is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than THC, including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis spasms, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, nausea, convulsion and in ammation, as well as inhibiting cancer cell growth. When I look at the side effects of Annas medication and the obvious brain damage that has occurred, I cannot see how CBD could be any more harmful. The risk of brain surgery and an implant far exceed the risk associated with the utilization of CBD. It has been said that if we want our children to have access to Charlottes Web then we should move to Colorado where it is available. I am a nurse and my husband operates our family farm. Our support system, including family, lives close by. We could not imagine moving Anna away from such. Anna has lived in the same home all of her life and has had the same caregiver since 2010. She cannot write her name nor does she know her ABCs. Developmentally she is on the level of a 4 year old. Routines are vitally important to Anna. To move would be very traumatic and would not be in Annas best interest. As you read the many articles and hear the news of stories such as Annas, please consider what the bene ts of CBD could be. Children like Anna are already taking controlled substances. I have worked as a nurse for 16 years. I have seen the effects of debilitating conditions, long-term effects of medication usage, and the ongoing problem of prescription drug abuse.Jill Braxton, mother of AnnaVernon Local pleads case of medical marijuana Letter to the EDITORIn October, I wrote about the removal of the large concrete block building at the corner of Highway 177A and Highway 79 (Waukesha St) in Pepper Town (North Bonifay). Some of my memories were inaccurate, and I received an email from L. Paul Mathis, who worked there for the Butlers in 1950 and 1951. I am grateful to Paul for updating and correcting my inaccuracies. I always welcome such feedback. If I get something wrong and no one corrects me, then it is history according to Hazel. Paul said he remembers when the twostory building was built. James and Myrtle Butler owned a grocery store in a wood-frame building at that location and built the block building around and over the wood-frame building while continuing to sell groceries and meat out of the location during the entire renovation. When the roof was on the new block building, they began to demolish the wood frame building from inside the block building. Paul said he was employed by the Butlers in the new block building during his junior and senior years at Holmes County High School. Hed work seven days a week during the summer; then, during the school year, hed work from 6-8 a.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday. While Paul Mathis was employed, Mr. Butler cut the meat himself. After he taught Paul to cut meat, he alternated with Mr. Butler as the meat cutter. During that time, the Butlers owned a 1947 GMC truck. Paul used it to deliver groceries to customers. I never had home-delivery of groceries. Paul said Mr. and Mrs. Butler allowed him to take the truck home overnight so he could drive his mother to his graduation ceremony when he graduated with the class of 1951. That was the only time he was allowed that privilege. He recalled my husbands brother Harry also graduated at that time. The two of them worked across the street from each other, Harry for the John Manuel grocery and Paul for the Butler grocery. They both had Cushman motor scooters; Harrys was red and Pauls was green. They spent their off-time cruising the streets of Bonifay. I joined the Tison family in December of 1949, and the red motor scooter was Harrys mode of transportation. He had a paper delivery route for a daily newspaper and The Grit, which was delivered on the scooter. He would use it for a trip to the creek, an errand for the family, to go to the movies, or wherever he wanted to go. I heard his sister Nell tell about him taking her and her girlfriend for a ride. But he took off in such a hurry, he left the girls sitting in the road. I asked Paul Mathis for an update on his life and memories of Bonifay for this article. He graciously supplied me with a good accounting. Some of his accomplishments at HCHS include serving as student council president and Key Club president. In 1949, he was chosen to play in the National FFA Band, and in 1947, he played in the Florida State Band. After he and Harry graduated from Holmes County High in 1951, Paul attended Auburn University with the idea of majoring in agricultural education. However, nancial realities caused him to leave Auburn and join the U.S. Air Force at the age of 17. (He had been allowed to start rst grade in Bonifay the age of 5.) After rising through the ranks in the Air Force, he applied for and was accepted for Of cer Candidate School. He retired with the rank of major. During his career, he attended more than 30 professional and technical schools, two of the greatest signi cance were the Seventh Army NCO Academy and the Air Force Command and Staff College. In 1953 or 54, while Paul was stationed in Wels, Austria, and Harry Tison was stationed in Augsburg, Germany, the two of them rendezvoused in Wels for a few days, where Paul was able to introduce Harry to his future wife, an Austrian lady who has remained at his side for 59 years. Paul retired in 1975 and located in Scottsdale, Ariz., where his wife opened an art gallery to dispose of the paintings she had collected during their trips to Europe while in the Air Force. She retired in 1985, and the two travel and explore the Outback of Arizona. Paul who was born in Vernon just east of the courthouse square, where his closest neighbors, the Bruner family, lived on the south bank of Holmes Creek. Mrs. Mamie Roach, his mothers best friend, named him Lloyd, but his mother preferred Paul. He has clear memories of traveling from Bonifay to Vernon to visit, crossing the wooden one-lane bridge. There were two pullouts in case you met traf c. Even as a small child, he breathed a sigh of relief when the crossing was accomplished. When the family moved to Bonifay, they bought land and built a small house where the late Bruce Williams home is now located. Pauls most vivid memories of school involve the band, which he joined in the fourth grade. In high school, there were the Friday night football games. After the games, hed walk home via Waukesha Street to Butlers store, pause between that and Ed Durants store and survey the boggy, swampy road to the west that at led home, wondering how many snakes hed encounter. Hed plunge ahead calling out to the top of his voice, Ye, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Repeating these words loudly, hed high step all the way home. Another vivid memory was when he was in about the fourth grade. His mother would allow him to ride his pony to school occasionally. He would unsaddle it and leave it tied to an oak tree on the west side of the school across from the McKinnon dairy, where the middle school gym now stands. He could always see the pony from his classroom window. He would have to ride it home for lunch, where he left it to pasture and water while he walked back for the afternoon session. Schoolmates were always excited to see the pony at school. It is always a pleasure to hear about a Holmes County person who has done alright.

Mrs. Mamie Roach, his mothers best friend, named him Lloyd, but his mother preferred Paul. He has clear memories of traveling from Bonifay to Vernon to visit, crossing the wooden one-lane bridge.

The practice, known as decoupling, will get a high pro le change in the bill, the result of a lobbying surge from tracks and animal advocates on the issue that has bounced around Tallahassee for years. Tracks currently must run a certain number of races each year to be allowed to operate the more-pro table card rooms. State Senate Gaming Committee Chairman Garrett Richter, R-Naples, announced the proposed committee bills core components at the panels Monday meeting. The bills draft text will be unveiled Monday, before the committees next meeting. The bill also will include an injury-reporting requirement at dog and horse tracks, something for which animal advocates have pushed. Noticeably omitted, though, is a decision on slot machines. Washington and Gadsden counties have approved slot machines through local referendum, but the state attorney general blocked the counties from activating those machines. In Mondays meeting, Richter pushed for decoupling tracks immediately, saying he believed the state no longer should tell the dog and horse tracks how to run their businesses. In recent years, interest in dog tracks has taken a precipitous decline, to the point where all tracks in the state are losing money. Ebro Greyhound Park, just north of Bay County, lost $2.9 million on greyhound racing in 2012. Even its card room pro ts werent enough to put it in the black, as the track lost $1 million overall that year. State Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, said decoupling is not a black and white issue. He said breeders and trainers make their living based on these races and through decoupling the state Legislature would be picking winners and losers. At the end of the meeting, it remained unclear whether the decoupling portion of the bill would be written prior to the legislations unveiling. Richter said he would consult with staff. Well either develop it on the y or pick it apart when we get it, he said. State Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, whose district includes several Panhandle counties, though not Washington, stayed silent during the discussion. Gaming commission The proposed bill also would create a state gaming commission, which appears to have unanimous support from the gaming committee. Latvala wholeheartedly endorsed the idea. He said in other states the gaming industry fears the gaming commission. I think thats what we need here, he said. Senators expressed concern, however, over how members would be picked for the commission, which was compared to the states Public Service Commission (PSC), a board that oversees utilities in Florida. Latvala said he didnt like comparisons to the PSC, which at times has cozied up to industry interests. He said he doesnt want a gambling commission to be the industrys lap dog. Richter endorsed the idea of full-time board members being paid at the PSC rate of about $130,000 annually. The commission would oversee all gaming in the state, except the Florida Lottery, which didnt appeal to Senate President designate Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando. Gardiner said the Lottery is gambling and it would be worth including under a commissions purview, particularly based on what he described as past problems, although he didnt elaborate. I wouldnt shut the door on it yet, Gardiner said. The bill also would: Authorize the governor to move forward and renegotiate the existing Seminole Compact for highstakes table games. Open the door for destination casinos in MiamiDade and Broward counties. Richter made it clear destination-casino licenses wouldnt be handed out to everyone, but he suggested these two locales might qualify as exceptions and openly endorsed putting a casino in Miami.Gaming bill to include decoupling, injury statsNo solution expected on slot machines Like us on WASHINGTON COUNTY NEWS/ HOLMES COUNTY ADVERTISER HEATHER LEIPHART | Halifax Media le photoGreyhounds race around the track in the pouring rain at the Ebro Greyhound Park in August.
