B7 County moves closer to coordinator position By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners on Feb. 25 agreed to move forward on their process of selecting a county coordinator by approving to call a special session for the purpose of selecting both a county coordinator and a 911 coordinator. “We’ve been having some logistical problems with going to the Federal Emergency Management Agency coordinator instead of a county coordinator and are not making any headway,” Commissioner Bill Parish said. “This kind of thing falls under the work of a county coordinator, and I think we’re better off moving back in that direction.” Commissioners also agreed to apply for a Community Development Block Grant to possibly mill, resurface and make drainage improvements to Sweet Gum and Cypress roads. Preble-Rish Inc. held a Fair Housing Workshop in which County Engineer Cliff Knauer read the basic facts about the Fair Housing Act. “The Fair Housing Act covers most housing,” Knauer said. “In some circumstances, the Act exempts owner-occupied buildings with no more than four units, single-family housing sold or rented without the use of a broker, and housing operated by organizations and private clubs that limit occupancy to members. No one may take the following actions based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status or handicap: in the sale and rental of housing or in mortgage lending.” See COORDINATOR A2 3 arrested on animal cruelty charges By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com GRACEVILLE — A routine food safety inspection led to the arrest of three suspects on animal cruelty charges by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. According to investigative reports, roughly 90 dairy cattle at the Wild Rose Dairy, located at 1230 Underwood Road in Graceville, were classi ed as neglected and in poor physical condition. Inspectors detected unsanitary conditions at the dairy during a routine inspection, Feb. 11, and immediately issued a stop sale order for violations of the requisite food safety regulations. A veterinarian at the department con rmed the poor condition of the cattle was because of neglect, and Agricultural Law Enforcement initiated an investigation. Law enforcement of cers transferred the remaining dairy cattle that were able to travel to another local dairy Feb. 17. The livestock will remain there where they can live under proper care until the court can determine ownership and a long-term care solution. Agricultural Law Enforcement obtained arrest warrants through the State Attorney’s Of ce for the 14th Judicial Circuit Court Feb. 27, for the three individuals responsible for managing Wild Rose Dairy, where the dairy cattle were neglected. Arrested were Joseph Dodge Harvey Clark, 75; Richard Kevin Clark, 51; and Nikki Slininger, 31. The trio is charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a third-degree felony, and unlawful disposal of animal carcasses, a second-degree misdemeanor. The suspects were booked at the Holmes County Jail, By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.co m Three communities within in Holmes County recently were awarded grants from the Northwest Water Management District to improve their water conditions. Towns receiving funding include City of Bonifay, Town of Esto and Town of Noma. The City of Bonifay was awarded $268,900 to replace 4,590 feet of asbestos cement and a lead joint water main to reduce water loss and help protect the public and environment. “This is very important to the future growth of our city,” Mayor Lawrence Cloud said. “We’ve got to have our infrastructure in order in order to accommodate any future growth. If you don’t have infrastructure, you can’t have growth.” The Town of Esto was awarded $149,690 to replace 4,850 feet of water line to replace aging water pipes and reduce water loss. “This is absolutely wonderful, and we are extremely happy that we will be able to improve our water and improve the quality of life for our residents,” Town Clerk Jody Sellers said. “It is so hard to just get Water grants coming to Holmes County See CRUELTY A2 See GRANTS A2 Ponce de Leon announces Sweet Sixteen attendants | A3 Tax collectors soon could process applications for concealed carry permits By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com Residents of Washington and Holmes counties soon could be among those finding the concealed carry permitting process more convenient. A Senate committee already has passed legislation that would allow applicants to apply for or renew permits at their tax collector’s office. Currently, those desiring to apply for a concealed carry permit must drive to one of the state’s eight regional offices, the nearest being in Tallahassee. The measure as currently written would allow tax collectors to charge a “convenience fee” on top of the current permit cost, and $22 could be added to the $70 new application fee and $12 added to the $60 renewal fee.

At the time of the arrest, Agricultural Law Enforce ment ofcers said they found Slininger in possession of methamphetamine and charged her with possession of a con trolled substance, a third-degree felony. “I’m proud of the collaborative ef fort by our staff and law enforcement officers. Inspectors discovered the poor conditions at this dairy during a routine inspection and reported their observations to law enforcement,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. “As a result, we were able to hold these individuals responsible for the harm they caused and, more importantly, nd new accommodations for the animals.” CRUELTY from page A1 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.

Commissioners denied Holmes County Public Li brary Director Susan Har ris’ request from the First Baptist Church to rent the library’s annex for Sunday school. “You’d have to have a good rental agreement and then prepare to rent it out to anyone,” County Attor ney Jeff Goodman said. “It’s not the First Baptist we’re worried about; it’s whoever would be next in line to re quest it – and believe me, there are people who use other organizations to rent it just to see if you’re willing to.” IFAS Extension Direc tor Shep Eubanks came before the Board to request consideration to purchase a van for the Holmes County 4-H. “Niki Crawson is doing more than an outstanding job with attendance steadily growing,” Eubanks said. “We’ve got a van that isn’t very reliable and events where these children need transportation.” After much discussion, the board agreed to allow the Extension ofce to rent a van until more permanent arrangements could be made. “I think this is some thing the board needs to look into,” Merchant said. “When it comes to our children (participating in) positive and constructive events, (rather than) many of the things they shouldn’t be doing, I believe that’s something we should stand behind.” Board members also ap proved a measure replac ing the farmer’s market air conditioning unit for the cost of $2,968 and to bid out a replacement for the air conditioning unit located at the Holmes County Agricul tural Center. The board also agreed to allow the 911 department to submit a grant application for the E911 Rural County Assistance Program. “We just need to let ev eryone know that once the grant goes out, so does the program because we can’t afford it,” Commissioner Kenneth Williams said. A special session will be at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6, and the next regu lar session will be at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 11. cC OORDINATOR from page A1 started, and it has been so desperately needed.” Sellers said the major ity of the town’s success in receiving the grant was because of the help of Bob Mearns with Florida Ru ral Water, explaining that Mearns guided the town through the requirements of the grant applications process and how to opti mize their overall scor ing to better insure their acceptance. “He really tries so very hard to help small towns such as us because it is so very hard for small towns to receive help,” Sellers said. “He really got us through the grant application, and now we’re ready to push on for the next grant right after this one.” She explained that to re place all the water pipes in the Town of Esto, it would cost well over $1 million, so the town is working to apply for more grants and replace all the pipes in stages. The Town of Noma re ceived $415,292 to replace 28,100 feet of their distri bution system and 25 re hydrants as well as provide additional valve and meter installation to deciencies in their water system. A representative from Noma Town Hall was not available for comment at press time. GRANTS from page A1 CON cC EALED from page A1 Permits still would be issued through the Florida Department of Agricul ture and Consumer Ser vice’s Division of Licens ing. The department also would continue to handle the required background checks. The tax collec tors’ role would simply be to expedite the process by accepting applications, an added duty that would come at the request of the tax collector. The proposal has heavy backing from the National Rie Association — and interest from both Wash ington County Tax Collec tor Ken Naker and Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell. ”This is an effort to make permitting more ac cessible,” Naker said. “I’ve already had people ex press interest in it, and as long as it helps the citizens of Washington County, I’m all for it. We can take the workload as long as we can integrate it into what we already have and it not cost the taxpayers. “I just don’t want to see any extra burden put on the county. I haven’t gotten the nuts and bolts of it yet, but more and more people are getting concealed per mits, and if it’s something they’re doing already, then the fees could be kept local instead of (the applicant) having to drive 100 miles to get it taken care of. My goal is for the people here to receive the best service they possibly can.” Holmes County Tax Col leton Harry Bell agrees. “Tax collectors are always looking for more ways to serve citizens,” Bell said. “That’s the focus of our association.” Bell also pointed out smaller Florida counties might have an advantage over larger counties when it comes to implementing the service. “Because we’re a rural area, our ofces are crosstrained,” he said. “We merged last November and already issue driver’s licenses here. We have a pool of talented people working in this ofce, and this will be just one more thing added to their abilities. “We’re already getting positive feedback on the idea,” he added. “The only problem I foresee is if there is some type of equipment we have to purchase up front, prior to having any income from the applica tions. There’s no guaran tees that people will em brace this, and if there is a large investment, that will have to be thoroughly investigated.” According to the pro posal, electronic nger print scanners valued at roughly $15,000 would be provided, with tax col lectors responsible for maintenance. Residents still can ap ply in person at the re gional eld ofces and by mail-in without the added convenience fees. CAROL KENT | Times-Advertiser Proposed legislation would allow county tax collectors to receive and process applications for concealed carry permits. Currently, applications must be made in person at one of the state’s eight regional eld ofces or mailed in.

The Sweet 16 Dance is for all Poplar Springs High School students who are turning 16 or have turned 16 this year. DOWN HOME STREET FE sS TIVAL AcAC TIVITIE sS MOSCOW (AP) — Accusing the West of encouraging an “un constitutional coup” in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that Mos cow reserves the right to use its military to protect Russians there but voiced hope it won’t need to do so. The Russian leader’s rst com ments on Ukraine since its fugitive president ed to Russia came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kiev to meet with Ukraine’s new government. Putin declared that Western actions were driving Ukraine into an archy and warned that any sanctions the West places on Russia for its actions there will back re. Both the U.S. and the 28-nation European Union have raised the possibility of sanctions against Russia. The U.S. announced a $1 billion aid package Tuesday in energy subsi dies to Ukraine, which is scrambling to get inter national loans to fend off looming bankruptcy. Its nance minister, who has said Ukraine needs $35 billion to get through this year and next, was meet ing Tuesday with ofcials from the International Monetary Fund. Tensions remained high Tuesday in Crimea, with troops loyal to Mos cow ring warning shots to ward off protesting Ukrainian soldiers. Rus sia took over the strate gic peninsula on Satur day, placing its troops around the peninsula’s ferry, military bases and border posts. Two Ukrai nian warships remained anchored in the Crime an port of Sevastopol, blocked from leaving by Russian ships. The new Ukrainian leadership in Kiev, which Putin does not recognize, has accused Moscow of a military invasion in Crimea. Yet world markets seemed to recover from their fright over the situ ation in Ukraine, clawing back a large chunk of Monday’s stock losses, while oil, gold, wheat and the Japanese yen gave back some of their gains. “Condence in equity markets has been restored as the standoff be tween Ukraine and Rus sia is no longer on red alert,” David Madden, market analyst at IG, said Tuesday. Speaking from his res idence outside Moscow, Putin said he still consid ers Viktor Yanukovych to be Ukraine’s president and hopes that Russia won’t need to use force in predominantly Rus sian-speaking eastern Ukraine. “We aren’t going to ght the Ukrainian peo ple,” Putin said, adding that the massive mili tary maneuvers Russia has been doing near Ukraine’s border had been planned and were unrelated to the situation in Ukraine. Earlier in the day, Putin had ordered tens of thousands of Russian troops participating in those exercises to return to their bases — some 150,000 troops, hundreds of tanks and dozens of aircraft in all. Putin also insisted that the Russian military deployment in Crimea has remained within the limits set by a bilateral agreement on a Russian military base there. He said Russia had no inten tion of annexing Crimea, but insisted its residents have the right to deter mine the region’s status in a referendum set for later this month.

I remember the summer I fell in love with history. Grandma Kent’s sister, Aunt Nell Dilmore, moved next door in 1990, right before my sophomore year at Chipley High School. Sheer proximity led to a lot of time spent with Nell, a spunky, free spirit unconstrained by society’s expectations. This became evident as she enthralled me with tales of her World War II-era youth, when young ladies loved red lipstick and “the boys in uniform.” I tried to picture my petite aunt working in the shipyard in Panama City. “They told me to weld like I crocheted,” she laughed. Aunt Nell liked welding. But she loved dancing, painting a vivid picture of days gone by as she held me captive with her stories. I could almost hear the jazzy sound of the band and see the swirl of smoke from the cigarette no amount of lecturing could make her put down. “The jitterbug was a fast dance,” she explained. “Timing was everything. If you lost that, it was hard to get it back. And Lord knows, you’d better have a good partner if you were going to be tossed over a shoulder or through his legs!” She laughed as she talked about the hits, like when she and a date won a jitterbug contest — and the misses, like the time an inept beau missed her hand, and she went crashing to the oor. In my mind’s eye, I was there, could hear her embarrassed laughter as she got back up and patted her Rita Hayworth curls into place. Other family members had stories to tell, but none have been as sorely missed as those of that sassy aunt, who passed away in the late ’90s. Since working in the newspaper industry, I’ve had to use discipline when searching for a speci c fact in bound archives. Photos and stories from decades past about people I know often distract from the task at hand. Most recently, I was pleasantly distracted by a tale handed down though our area’s McNeil family. Washington County resident Angie Roberts and her father, Bill McNeil, stopped by my of ce with an interesting story about Bill’s great-grandfather, Asa McNeil. “All my life, I heard the story about the moonshiners and the gun ght in Bonifay,” McNeil said. “A posse was hired and deputized by a U.S. Marshall in Montgomery, Ala., to raid Wednesday, March 5, 2014 In my quest to complete a task I’ve started years ago to put together all the information about the schools where my mother-in-law taught brought to my attention (again) a 1941 Advertiser. It is the issue for the graduating class of 1941, the class in which Etha Tison, my sister-in-law, was a member. The only two members of that class that I know who are living today are Vernell Watkins Pipkin and Ruth Brock Bush. There are probably others, I just don’t know them. Vermol Retherford Johnson, a member of that class, died recently. Sixty class members are pictured in the edition. Mr. Ira Bush was Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Ross Masters was faculty dean and Mr. Roger Williams was the school principal. Most people who knew Mr. Williams have a Roger Williams story. My husband recalls getting by with some infraction, perhaps ying a paper airplane in the classroom. At the end of the school year, he was so proud of that accomplishment that he approached Mr. Williams and proudly told him that he had done the dastardly deed, thinking that the statute of limitations had run out. They had not. Mr. Williams said, “Come on in here to my of ce,” where he administered the board of education to his seat of understanding. In this issue a three/fourth page advertisement from Schienbergs of his AfterEaster Sale gives a clue to the cost of clothing seventy-three years ago. For example, close-out prices on frocks, suits, coats are as follows: All $10 frocks...$6.95; $7 & $8 frocks...$4.95; this season’s ladies shoes in A to C widths priced at $1.98, $2.95 & $3.95. (A frock is a dress.) High topped men’s work shoes were $1.98 per pair and men’s dress slacks in Spanish linen and Sharkskins were $1.98 to $4.95 per pair. It is obvious from the models in the pictures that waist sizes have increased signi cantly since 1941. There was a long social column, but no social editor is listed. Miss Lily Harrell was the social editor when we moved to town in 1951. The First Methodist Junior Choir were entertained by Mrs. K.D. Rooks at the public library on last Friday evening. Assisting her were Mr. Fred Gwaltney, Mrs. D.N. Kates, and Miss Marion Logan. Invited guests were Kathryn Powell, Sue Alford, Gloria Newsome, Mary Lou Fulford, Grace Williams, Dorris Holinhead, Rachel Register, Louise Register, Martha Ann Hackney, Inez Donaldson, Tom Stott, John Rooks, Hilton Pate, and Tom Douglas Williams. Other items: Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Buie attended the singing convention in Marianna on Sunday. (Mr. Buie was a piano salesman and tuner and they lived in the house where Dr. Bailey now has her medical practice.) “Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Swindle were visitors in Marianna last Sunday in attendance upon the Jackson County Singing Convention.” “Mr. and Mrs. Howard Dannelly and little daughter Marianne of DeFuniak Springs, and Miss Annie Margaret Williams of Milton, spent Sunday in Bonifay with the E. A. Williams family.” “Mrs. Bettie Caudle had as guests rst of the week her sister, Mrs. J. S. Wynn and son, Joe Wynn; a nephew, Bobby Allen, Mrs. Robert Wynn and Mrs. Link Born, all of Clarksville, Texas. They were enroute to Jacksonville where Joe will be stationed at the U.S. Air base. He has just completed his training as aviation mechanic at the navy yard at Norfolk, Va.”Some will remember that Mrs. Caudle was the beloved Home Demonstration Agent in Holmes County for a number of years working with home-makers and 4-H girls in many home improvement projects and taking girls to short courses, etc. The announcement that the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. T. McDonald had been taken to the Children’s Hospital in Umatila where she has been for several weeks reminds of the scourge that affected so many children and young adults of that day, Polio. Many will remember Lorene McDonald Coomer who taught special education at Bonifay Elementary School. She attended and University of West Florida when I did and often rode with me. She was an inspiration to all of us in the way she achieved the things she did in spite of her Physical limitations. The old Advertisers are always a good source for a look back at the way things used to be. I appreciate all the positive feedback I get from everyone. That is what keeps me scrambling from week to week to provide material worthy of your time. Looking back in the Holmes County Times-Advertiser Uncover your family story CAROL KENT Editor HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison moonshine stills on the Florida and Alabama lines. Asa was one of those moonshiners.” According to a 1890 news report by the Daily Morning Astorian, a “bloody ght” occurred in Bonifay that December when moonshiners led an attack on the posse after it raided several stills in Holmes County. More than 150 shots were red — no small number in the days before repeating arms were common. Asa McNeil would later be sentenced to life in prison for his role in the ambush. The family story is that a lawyer talked McNeil into turning himself in, and in exchange, he’d get McNeil out of jail, and they’d split the $500 reward. The lawyer’s promise didn’t hold, however, and McNeil died in 1893 while in the jail in Pensacola at the age of 40. A Supreme Court case later ensued after the attorney was denied payment because he had been deputized, and authorities said McNeil’s capture was simply his duty. The attorney ultimately won his reward. “We’re certainly glad he had to ght for it,” Roberts said. “Those court records are why we have as much information as we do today.” But that’s just the beginning of the story. “Nobody I could nd knew anything more about it,” McNeil said. “I was beginning to wonder if there wasn’t something wrong with the story.” Then, a chance encounter in the 1960s put McNeil in contact with a man who could con rm at least part of the story. “I happened to see this man while I was out hunting, and we got to talking,” McNeil said. “He told me he remembered coming home from town with his daddy and being told, ‘Now, when we pass by this house, you’re gonna see a man sitting on his porch. He’s wanted by the law, but don’t you say anything.’ He told me he remembered seeing the man just as his daddy said, and that he had a beard and an octagon barreled ri e leaning on the porch. I was always told my grandfather never went anywhere without that gun.” Years later, Bill’s daughter, Angie Roberts, became interested in genealogy and sought to help her dad nd answers. What she found was that McNeil wasn’t just a moonshiner; he was a respected member of the Florida House of Representatives. “That was one of the last things I expected,” Roberts said. McNeil represented then Holmes County seat Cerro Gordo in 1889, serving in the Extra Session of the House of Representatives and on the Postal Route Committee. “He had a reputation as a desperado because of the moonshining, but turns out, he held a position of respect,” Roberts said. Perhaps more ironically, Asa’s son, Eddy McNeil, grew up to serve as Constable for Defuniak Springs. Meanwhile, Roberts and McNeil would like to know more about this part of their family history. “Asa’s parents were Acey and Sarah McNeil, and his siblings were James, Andrew, Harriet, Josaphine, Newton and Sarah. The 1860 Census shows them living in Jackson County. If anyone knows anything about Asa’s daughters, Willie L. McNeil (called Aunt Will), who married Daniel Cotton in January 1904, or Doanie McNeil, who married JE Eubanks of Holmes County in November 1906, please contact me at 867-0440.” Even if you don’t know anything about the McNeil family, I encourage you to learn more about your own. We often are impatient, wanting time to pass quickly, thinking we may reach our goals faster. But what better way to get where we want to be than to consider where we’ve been? The past holds our legacy, our traditions, and a thousand other hidden treasures. And one day, it will be our turn to tell the stories. SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISER The McNeil family has been unable to locate a photo of its “desperado” patriarch, Asa McNeil. Above, his son, Eddy McNeil, a Constable for the town of Defunfak Springs, is pictured with his son, Justin McNeil; wife, Delia Ann (Slay) McNeil; and son Willie McNeil, Sr., who is also Bill McNeil’s father.

Tuel is the fourth coach from Chipley to head the East, which is selected from a pool of senior players in The News Herald’s eight-county coverage area.

Savannah says she really wants one of those rings.” Poplar Springs High School Principal Gordon Wells said that her school is proud of Ryken as well. “I’m extremely happy that she’s going to be able to play ball at the next level, and I’m also glad that our overall improvement of our program has lead to us being recognized by college coaches,” said Wells. “I hope this is something that continues down the road.

RIGHT: Birthday balloons, a cake and a photo collage showing Britney through the years were displayed at the site of her candlelight vigil. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com POPLAR SPRINGS — After making her mark with several notable achievements throughout her Junior and Senior Beta Club career, high school junior Cami Dixon will soon represent her school, Poplar Springs, as she competes for the position of National President Beta Club President. “I’ve been a part of the Beta Club for over six years,” Dixon said. “Back in Junior Beta, Sherley Owens was my sponsor, and she encouraged me to run for state of ce. Back then, I was kind of shy (and) wasn’t good at speaking. I would get really embarrassed really easily, and she helped me run (for my rst of ce).” Dixon said Owens helped her put together her rst two-minute speech and one-minute skit. “I kind of overcame my fear of public speaking,” she said. “I won Junior Beta Club State President that year, and we were all so excited because Poplar Springs hadn’t really been at the Beta Club State conventions. We never really won anything, but that year, we won a lot in several competitions. We really gave it our all that year. After that, I made up my mind that I wanted to do it again in Senior Beta, and after State Convention, I went to a Broyhill Leadership Conference in South Carolina and to Nationals in Louisville, Ky.” She said it was those competitions that instilled in her the desire to compete. “I really liked traveling to new places and speaking to people,” Dixon said. “Mrs. Owens helped me. She was really supportive, and she’d been a Beta Club sponsor for 20 years.” In her ninth and 10th grade year in Senior Beta, Dixon said she entered several competitions, however, she knew she wanted to run for state president. Her Senior Beta sponsor, Teresa Culbreth, made her aware of the hard work and dedication it would take and helped prepare her for the work ahead. “So we got our skit together, and I got my speech together,” Dixon said. “We got to the convention, and we practiced. I campaigned and talked to as many people as I could, trying to relate to people because we’re a small school in comparison to the other schools that were there,” Dixon said. “I really didn’t go down there expecting to win because the other schools had close to 100 people there, and we had 30. I got on a personal level when I talked with people everywhere I went, even if it was in the mall or at the convention.” The next day, after her speech and skit she was surprised to nd that she had won. “I was just so excited, and now I’m going to Nationals in Richmond, Va. to run for the National Beta Club President,” Dixon said. “I’m just so excited because this has been my whole experience with the Beta Club. The Beta Club has been about academics, integrity, respecting others.” She said she feels Beta Club is the best club for character building. “It encourages students to behave well in class and to keep their grades up,” she said. “I think it’s the best club anyone could be a part of.” Dixon also said that she plans on going into dentistry, and she’s active in her church. “I’ve gone from architect, to pharmacist, to dentist over the past few years,” Dixon said. “I’ve always been really strong in church, and ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been singing in church. I’m the worship leader every Sunday and Wednesday for our youth group. I just really think God is calling me to be in the ministry. “Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve felt that strong pull on my heart, but I’ve never really accepted it until this year because people in the ministry know they don’t make a lot of money, or they’re constantly moving around; it’s just really an iffy job where you really have to trust in the Lord.” She said she knew she could easily go into dentistry with her hard work, dedication and good grades. “I know that job will bring stability and a steady income. However I know I won’t be satis ed unless I give my whole life to God and completely submit to Him,” Dixon said. “I feel like everyone is searching for satisfaction in life. No matter what kind of life you have, all the money in the world; it doesn’t matter how much you accomplish here, you get satisfaction and happiness from your relationship with the Lord and helping and serving others.” By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com VERNON — It’s been seven years since popular Washington County teen Britney Wright disappeared from her Vernon home, but her family hasn’t given up looking for answers. A gathering of family and friends gathered in Vernon to mark what would have been Wright’s 26th birthday last Friday, Feb. 28. Amid an emotional candlelight vigil, prayers and hymns, her mother, Kim Wright, issued a plea. “Someone knows something,” Wright said. “We feel like we know who’s involved and want them to do the right thing. Maybe something happened (to Britney) by accident, and they panicked, but it’s time they came forward.” “We can’t spend holidays with her, and we can’t even visit a grave. Our family needs some closure.” Britney was last seen near her home in July 2007. According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Of ce, none of her belongings — including her clothing, purse and cell phone — were taken from her home at the time of her disappearance. Crimestoppers is offering a reward of $1,000 for credible information in the case, but Wright’s family is trying to raise that amount in hopes it will encourage someone to come forward with information. Donations can be made to the reward money fund by calling Wright at (334) 648-8877. Anyone with any information about this case is asked to contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Of ce at 638-6111 or Crimestoppers at 638-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous.

Present were Brenda Alford, Joyce Brannon, Cynthia Brooks, Medea Callahan, Barbara Howell, Wanda Howell, Terri McCormick, Nancy Riley, Kyla Rushing, DiAnn Shores, Dianne Smith and Hazel Tison. The meeting was called to order by President Brooks. The minutes were read by Secretary Riley and approved as read. Tison reviewed the book “The Cuckoo’s Calling,” by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scrapping by as a London private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime off-and-on girlfriend and now living in his ofce. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story. Bristow’s sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, fell to her death a few months earlier. They ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe it. Along with his secretary, Robin Ellacott, Strike looks into Lula’s death. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends and desperate designers as he makes his way to nd the truth. Did Lula Landry jump or was she pushed? This question ultimately becomes the heart of Strike’s investigation. Delicious refreshments were served by Mrs. Brooks at the conclusion of the meeting. Special to Extra The doors were open, and the reed was ying at the Washington County Historical Society Museum on Feb. 22. Master weavers Sharon Hynes and Yvette Lerner shared the art of basket weaving with a mixed group of beginning and experienced basketry students. The basket of the day was a “tote basket” with a Shaker strap handle. While distributing materials, Hynes told students the tote was simple to make, very handy and quite sturdy. A woven Shaker strap made it easy to carry by hand or over your shoulder. “The basket classes we offer through the museum are basic weaving and great for beginners,” Hynes said. “We provide a nice variety of reed — different colors and widths, at to round, along with sea grasses and embellishments. No two baskets are alike — we encourage students to express their creativity as they weave.” “From an historical point of view, baskets have been around thousands of years,” said Museum Director Dorothy Odom. “It is one of the widest spread crafts in history. We have several nice examples of old baskets from Washington County’s past in our Native American display. Basketry is an important skill, and we welcome the opportunity to help to keep the craft alive. In mid-March we look forward to offering an Easter basket weaving class.” The Washington County Historical Society Museum is at 685 Seventh St. in downtown Chipley. The hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m. to noon rst Saturdays. Special tours can be arranged by calling 638-0358.

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Dr. Mark Stickney, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently mentioned in the article “Extreme Groomers Give Dogs Dazzle” regarding creative and eccentric grooming for dogs. Everything from Mohawks, ower designs and temporary paint tattoos are created on the animal for “bonding” between a person and their pooch. Harmless yet extravagant, this extreme grooming fad is becoming increasingly popular among dog owners. Though Dr. Stickney admits in the article this type of grooming is not for him, he does agree you should always be sure to keep up with your pets’ basic grooming. “You don’t want to give them a bath more than once a week unless told to do so by your veterinarian for some sort of skin condition. Any more frequently than that will only serve to dry out their skin,” Stickney said. If you have an unruly pooch that doesn’t enjoy getting wet, then some positive reinforcement should usually do the trick. “One way to encourage them is to use a positive reinforcement, such as a treat, whenever you put them in a situation where they’re going to get their face or paws wet,” Stickney said. “Also, don’t go overboard the rst couple of times you bathe them. Easing them into the routine by only putting them in toe deep in the tub is a great way to start.” Giving your cat a bath can provide a whole new meaning to the word unpleasant. Lucky for us feline lovers, cats do a good enough job of keeping themselves clean without our intervention. “Unless your cat is just lthy, it’s best not to struggle with routinely cleaning them,” Stickney said. “If they do need to be cleaned, the easiest way to do so would be to buy a waterless shampoo you can simply rub into their skin and then rub out.” As far as which shampoo to use, any type formulated especially for animals should work just ne. “Assuming that your pet has healthy skin, you’ll want to use a shampoo specically formulated for dogs or cats,” Stickney said. If, however, your pet has a certain skin condition or irregularity, then consulting your veterinarian about which shampoo to use would be your safest bet. “One thing that you see commonly with animals that have a lot of loose skin and skin folds is they will get yeast or bacterial infections in those folds,” Stickney said. “In that case, you’ll want to consult with your veterinarian, as they will probably recommend bathing them more frequently and with some type of medicated shampoo.” Though it might not be necessary to sculpt your dog’s fur into exotic jungle scenes, as mentioned in the “Extreme Groomers” article, basic grooming and upkeep is vital to your pet’s health and happiness. ?H:<@^@] T[ X[T]^ : ^@ >:Q>@[* ) 0 % 022 3$02 /) 3) /$ ) ( /0 $( $ )) /0 ) /0 (2 2$ % 1 0( ) )'!2) '! + )" ) /0 % 1 02 2 '/$. ) 20* ) /) 022 ) ) $ /) $. ) $( /$( 20 /) 2$ 02 2 ( 1 ). $ (2) $. ) 3)(0' $2 /0 ) 0 )2* $( 2$( )$( /0 % 1 & $22 22 )) -/ $( 2)$ ) $3) $( $(( ) 2# and sor enes s aches Special to Extra Cottondale High School junior Breanna Harrell and Altha School junior Brad Pearson were named West Florida Electric’s Youth Tour competition winners on Feb. 20. Anthony Severson of Graceville High School was named the alternate. These students will represent WFEC on the National Rural Electric Youth Tour June 14-19, when they travel to Washington, D.C., with more than 30 other Florida students to join more than 1,500 high school juniors representing co-ops from across the country. Eleven area students participated in the local Youth Tour trip to Tallahassee. They were Brad Pearson, Altha School; Sarah Covell, Bethlehem School; Jake Woodham, Blountstown High School; MaryRosalyn Taylor, Chipley High School; Breanna Harrell, Cottondale High School; Anthony Severson, Graceville High School; Harrison Floyd, Malone School; Sophia Pereda, Marianna High School; Beth Hall, Poplar Springs School and Savannah Thompson, Sneads High School. Jordan Willis of Blountstown High School also participated in the FECA’s essay competition for the children and grandchildren of cooperative employees and trustees. The trips to Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., are part of the cooperative’s efforts to educate the leaders of tomorrow about how state and federal government works. The trips also help them gain insight into the roles rural cooperatives have played in the history of our country as well as their roles in the future of the electric utility industry. The Washington, D.C., Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1957 when co-ops sent students to Washington, D.C., to work during the summer. By 1964, the program caught on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began to coordinate the efforts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this opportunity.

Something this important cannot be jumped into at the last minute. 1. Obey the laws of health. Some people violate the basic rules of good health and exercise and expect God to bail them out of an unhealthy lifestyle. At times people do more than they are physically capable of doing and their bodies out. It is amazing how much healing a good rest will bring into a worn-out body. Divine healing is no substitute for good habits of health and a healthy lifestyle. The Bible tells us that whatsoever we sow, that shall we also reap. 2. Examine for hidden sin. Some people harbor secret sins expecting God to turn a blind eye to this. Sin, fundamentally, will come between a person and God’s provision. Every aspect of sin in our life must be confessed and dealt with before we pray for healing. Sin sometimes is so insidious it takes a real work of the Holy Spirit to uncover it. Until sin is confessed, no amount of prayer or “commanding in Jesus’ name,” will bring the healing touch of God. 3. Spiritual warfare. Often the enemy’s attacks on the Christian are so vicious that health is wrecked. Job is a good example of this in the Old Testament. Some illnesses have a demonic connection. Not all, a discerning spirit needs to verify if the sickness is of the enemy or not. Normal prayer will not touch this. Such times call for a person to have these demonic powers cast out of their life. 4. Thorn in the esh. This is probably a rare instance but it does happen. The apostle Paul had what he called a “thorn in the esh.” When such an occasion happens, no amount of prayer will take it away. Paul prayed three times and then God told him to stop praying for that. Not every illness is a “thorn in the esh.” This is a special provision of God to accomplish a speci c purpose. 5. Prayer and fasting. Some illnesses call for spiritual discipline above the ordinary. This discipline rest upon those who are praying for someone who was sick. Often the sick person has no strength to engage in prayer for himself. There needs to be in every local congregation a band of believers who give themselves to this ministry of prayer and fasting especially for those who are sick. With every advancement of medical technology, people seem to be getting sicker and sicker. God’s people need to know how to break the power of sickness. 6. Call for the elders of the church. This is the basic New Testament instruction. Never has the church been instructed to chase after some “celebrity healer,” but rather we are to submit to the authority of the local church. When things are done outside of the local church, it is easy to bypass God’s simple provision 7. God does heal today. There is too much evidence to the contrary. However, God in every generation and dispensation works within the con nes of clearly established guidelines. To get all God has for us we need to be so positioned that God can have all of us.

Weve been having some logistical problems with going to the Federal Emergency Management Agency coordinator instead of a county coordinator and are not making any headway, Commissioner Bill Parish said. This kind of thing falls under the work of a county coordinator, and I think were better off moving back in that direction. Commissioners also agreed to apply for a Community Development Block Grant to possibly mill, resurface and make drainage improvements to Sweet Gum and Cypress roads. Preble-Rish Inc. held a Fair Housing Workshop in which County Engineer Cliff Knauer read the basic facts about the Fair Housing Act. The Fair Housing Act covers most housing, Knauer said. In some circumstances, the Act exempts owner-occupied buildings with no more than four units, single-family housing sold or rented without the use of a broker, and housing operated by organizations and private clubs that limit occupancy to members. No one may take the following actions based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status or handicap: in the sale and rental of housing or in mortgage lending.See COORDINATOR A23 arrested on animal cruelty charges By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com GRACEVILLE A routine food safety inspection led to the arrest of three suspects on animal cruelty charges by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. According to investigative reports, roughly 90 dairy cattle at the Wild Rose Dairy, located at 1230 Underwood Road in Graceville, were classi ed as neglected and in poor physical condition. Inspectors detected unsanitary conditions at the dairy during a routine inspection, Feb. 11, and immediately issued a stop sale order for violations of the requisite food safety regulations. A veterinarian at the department con rmed the poor condition of the cattle was because of neglect, and Agricultural Law Enforcement initiated an investigation. Law enforcement of cers transferred the remaining dairy cattle that were able to travel to another local dairy Feb. 17. The livestock will remain there where they can live under proper care until the court can determine ownership and a long-term care solution. Agricultural Law Enforcement obtained arrest warrants through the State Attorneys Of ce for the 14th Judicial Circuit Court Feb. 27, for the three individuals responsible for managing Wild Rose Dairy, where the dairy cattle were neglected. Arrested were Joseph Dodge Harvey Clark, 75; Richard Kevin Clark, 51; and Nikki Slininger, 31. The trio is charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a third-degree felony, and unlawful disposal of animal carcasses, a second-degree misdemeanor. The suspects were booked at the Holmes County Jail, By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com Three communities within in Holmes County recently were awarded grants from the Northwest Water Management District to improve their water conditions. Towns receiving funding include City of Bonifay, Town of Esto and Town of Noma. The City of Bonifay was awarded $268,900 to replace 4,590 feet of asbestos cement and a lead joint water main to reduce water loss and help protect the public and environment. This is very important to the future growth of our city, Mayor Lawrence Cloud said. Weve got to have our infrastructure in order in order to accommodate any future growth. If you dont have infrastructure, you cant have growth. The Town of Esto was awarded $149,690 to replace 4,850 feet of water line to replace aging water pipes and reduce water loss. This is absolutely wonderful, and we are extremely happy that we will be able to improve our water and improve the quality of life for our residents, Town Clerk Jody Sellers said.

A Senate committee already has passed legislation that would allow applicants to apply for or renew permits at their tax collectors office. Currently, those desiring to apply for a concealed carry permit must drive to one of the states eight regional offices, the nearest being in Tallahassee. The measure as currently written would allow tax collectors to charge a convenience fee on top of the current permit cost, and $22 could be added to the $70 new application fee and $12 added to the $60 renewal fee.See CONCEALED A2 CONCEALED CONVENIENCE CAROL KENT | Times-Advertiser

Its designed to ll our air tanks used to keep us safe, Remnel said. We could also use it throughout the county for other re stations, scuba tanks, you name it. Board Chairman Monty Merchant said he couldnt guarantee anything, but the county would try to help. Im not sure how we can help, but well do our best to help you in anyway possible, Merchant said. Commissioners denied Holmes County Public Library Director Susan Harris request from the First Baptist Church to rent the librarys annex for Sunday school. Youd have to have a good rental agreement and then prepare to rent it out to anyone, County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. Its not the First Baptist were worried about; its whoever would be next in line to req uest it and believe me, there are people who use other organizations to rent it just to see if youre willing to. IFAS Extension Director Shep Eubanks came before the Board to request consideration to purchase a van for the Holmes County 4-H. Niki Crawson is doing more than an outstanding job with attendance steadily growing, Eubanks said. Weve got a van that isnt very reliable and events where these children need transportation. After much discussion, the board agreed to allow the Extension ofce to rent a van until more permanent arrangements could be made. I think this is something the board needs to look into, Merchant said. When it comes to our children (participating in) positive and constructive events, (rather than) many of the things they shouldnt be doing, I believe thats something we should stand behind. Board members also approved a measure replacing the farmers market air conditioning unit for the cost of $2,968 and to bid out a replacement for the air conditioning unit located at the Holmes County Agricultural Center. The board also agreed to allow the 911 department to submit a grant application for the E911 Rural County Assistance Program. We just need to let everyone know that once the grant goes out, so does the program because we cant afford it, Commissioner Kenneth Williams said. A special session will be at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6, and the next regular session will be at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 11. cCOORDINATOR from page A1started, and it has been so desperately needed. Sellers said the majority of the towns success in receiving the grant was because of the help of Bob Mearns with Florida Rural Water, explaining that Mearns guided the town through the requirements of the grant applications process and how to optimize their overall scoring to better insure their acceptance. He really tries so very hard to help small towns such as us because it is so very hard for small towns to receive help, Sellers said. He really got us through the grant application, and now were ready to push on for the next grant right after this one. She explained that to replace all the water pipes in the Town of Esto, it would cost well over $1 million, so the town is working to apply for more grants and replace all the pipes in stages. The Town of Noma received $415,292 to replace 28,100 feet of their distribution system and 25 re hydrants as well as provide additional valve and meter installation to deciencies in their water system. A representative from Noma Town Hall was not available for comment at press time. GRANTS from page A1 CONcCEALED from page A1 Permits still would be issued through the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Licensing. The department also would continue to handle the required background checks. The tax collectors role would simply be to expedite the process by accepting applications, an added duty that would come at the request of the tax collector. The proposal has heavy backing from the National Rie Association and interest from both Washington County Tax Collector Ken Naker and Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell. This is an effort to make permitting more accessible, Naker said. Ive already had people express interest in it, and as long as it helps the citizens of Washington County, Im all for it. We can take the workload as long as we can integrate it into what we already have and it not cost the taxpayers. I just dont want to see any extra burden put on the county. I havent gotten the nuts and bolts of it yet, but more and more people are getting concealed permits, and if its something theyre doing already, then the fees could be kept local instead of (the applicant) having to drive 100 miles to get it taken care of. My goal is for the people here to receive the best service they possibly can. Holmes County Tax Colleton Harry Bell agrees. Tax collectors are always looking for more ways to serve citizens, Bell said. Thats the focus of our association. Bell also pointed out smaller Florida counties might have an advantage over larger counties when it comes to implementing the service. Because were a rural area, our ofces are crosstrained, he said. We merged last November and already issue drivers licenses here. We have a pool of talented people working in this ofce, and this will be just one more thing added to their abilities. Were already getting positive feedback on the idea, he added. The only problem I foresee is if there is some type of equipment we have to purchase up front, prior to having any income from the applications. Theres no guarantees that people will embrace this, and if there is a large investment, that will have to be thoroughly investigated. According to the proposal, electronic ngerprint scanners valued at roughly $15,000 would be provided, with tax collectors responsible for maintenance. Residents still can apply in person at the regional eld ofces and by mail-in without the added convenience fees. CAROL KENT | Times-AdvertiserProposed legislation would allow county tax collectors to receive and process applications for concealed carry permits. Currently, applications must be made in person at one of the states eight regional eld ofces or mailed in.

The Sweet 16 Dance is for all Poplar Springs High School students who are turning 16 or have turned 16 this year. DOWN HOME STREET FEsSTIVAL AcACTIVITIEsS MOSCOW (AP) Accusing the West of encouraging an unconstitutional coup in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that Moscow reserves the right to use its military to protect Russians there but voiced hope it wont need to do so. The Russian leaders rst comments on Ukraine since its fugitive president ed to Russia came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kiev to meet with Ukraines new government. Putin declared that Western actions were driving Ukraine into anarchy and warned that any sanctions the West places on Russia for its actions there will backre. Both the U.S. and the 28-nation European Union have raised the possibility of sanctions against Russia. The U.S. announced a $1 billion aid package Tuesday in energy subsidies to Ukraine, which is scrambling to get international loans to fend off looming bankruptcy. Its nance minister, who has said Ukraine needs $35 billion to get through this year and next, was meeting Tuesday with ofcials from the International Monetary Fund. Tensions remained high Tuesday in Crimea, with troops loyal to Moscow ring warning shots to ward off protesting Ukrainian soldiers. Russia took over the strategic peninsula on Saturday, placing its troops around the peninsulas ferry, military bases and border posts. Two Ukrainian warships remained anchored in the Crimean port of Sevastopol, blocked from leaving by Russian ships. The new Ukrainian leadership in Kiev, which Putin does not recognize, has accused Moscow of a military invasion in Crimea. Yet world markets seemed to recover from their fright over the situation in Ukraine, clawing back a large chunk of Mondays stock losses, while oil, gold, wheat and the Japanese yen gave back some of their gains. Condence in equity markets has been restored as the standoff between Ukraine and Russia is no longer on red alert, David Madden, market analyst at IG, said Tuesday. Speaking from his residence outside Moscow, Putin said he still considers Viktor Yanukovych to be Ukraines president and hopes that Russia wont need to use force in predominantly Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine. We arent going to ght the Ukrainian people, Putin said, adding that the massive military maneuvers Russia has been doing near Ukraines border had been planned and were unrelated to the situation in Ukraine. Earlier in the day, Putin had ordered tens of thousands of Russian troops participating in those exercises to return to their bases some 150,000 troops, hundreds of tanks and dozens of aircraft in all. Putin also insisted that the Russian military deployment in Crimea has remained within the limits set by a bilateral agreement on a Russian military base there. He said Russia had no intention of annexing Crimea, but insisted its residents have the right to determine the regions status in a referendum set for later this month.Putin: Russia has right to use force in Ukraine VVLAdDIMIR P PUTINHow sweet it is

I remember the summer I fell in love with history. Grandma Kents sister, Aunt Nell Dilmore, moved next door in 1990, right before my sophomore year at Chipley High School. Sheer proximity led to a lot of time spent with Nell, a spunky, free spirit unconstrained by societys expectations. This became evident as she enthralled me with tales of her World War II-era youth, when young ladies loved red lipstick and the boys in uniform. I tried to picture my petite aunt working in the shipyard in Panama City. They told me to weld like I crocheted, she laughed. Aunt Nell liked welding. But she loved dancing, painting a vivid picture of days gone by as she held me captive with her stories. I could almost hear the jazzy sound of the band and see the swirl of smoke from the cigarette no amount of lecturing could make her put down. The jitterbug was a fast dance, she explained. Timing was everything. If you lost that, it was hard to get it back. And Lord knows, youd better have a good partner if you were going to be tossed over a shoulder or through his legs! She laughed as she talked about the hits, like when she and a date won a jitterbug contest and the misses, like the time an inept beau missed her hand, and she went crashing to the oor. In my minds eye, I was there, could hear her embarrassed laughter as she got back up and patted her Rita Hayworth curls into place. Other family members had stories to tell, but none have been as sorely missed as those of that sassy aunt, who passed away in the late 90s. Since working in the newspaper industry, Ive had to use discipline when searching for a speci c fact in bound archives. Photos and stories from decades past about people I know often distract from the task at hand. Most recently, I was pleasantly distracted by a tale handed down though our areas McNeil family. Washington County resident Angie Roberts and her father, Bill McNeil, stopped by my of ce with an interesting story about Bills great-grandfather, Asa McNeil. All my life, I heard the story about the moonshiners and the gun ght in Bonifay, McNeil said. A posse was hired and deputized by a U.S. Marshall in Montgomery, Ala., to raid Wednesday, March 5, 2014In my quest to complete a task Ive started years ago to put together all the information about the schools where my mother-in-law taught brought to my attention (again) a 1941 Advertiser. It is the issue for the graduating class of 1941, the class in which Etha Tison, my sister-in-law, was a member. The only two members of that class that I know who are living today are Vernell Watkins Pipkin and Ruth Brock Bush. There are probably others, I just dont know them. Vermol Retherford Johnson, a member of that class, died recently. Sixty class members are pictured in the edition. Mr. Ira Bush was Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Ross Masters was faculty dean and Mr. Roger Williams was the school principal. Most people who knew Mr. Williams have a Roger Williams story. My husband recalls getting by with some infraction, perhaps ying a paper airplane in the classroom. At the end of the school year, he was so proud of that accomplishment that he approached Mr. Williams and proudly told him that he had done the dastardly deed, thinking that the statute of limitations had run out. They had not. Mr. Williams said, Come on in here to my of ce, where he administered the board of education to his seat of understanding. In this issue a three/fourth page advertisement from Schienbergs of his AfterEaster Sale gives a clue to the cost of clothing seventy-three years ago. For example, close-out prices on frocks, suits, coats are as follows: All $10 frocks...$6.95; $7 & $8 frocks...$4.95; this seasons ladies shoes in A to C widths priced at $1.98, $2.95 & $3.95. (A frock is a dress.) High topped mens work shoes were $1.98 per pair and mens dress slacks in Spanish linen and Sharkskins were $1.98 to $4.95 per pair. It is obvious from the models in the pictures that waist sizes have increased signi cantly since 1941. There was a long social column, but no social editor is listed. Miss Lily Harrell was the social editor when we moved to town in 1951. The First Methodist Junior Choir were entertained by Mrs. K.D. Rooks at the public library on last Friday evening. Assisting her were Mr. Fred Gwaltney, Mrs. D.N. Kates, and Miss Marion Logan. Invited guests were Kathryn Powell, Sue Alford, Gloria Newsome, Mary Lou Fulford, Grace Williams, Dorris Holinhead, Rachel Register, Louise Register, Martha Ann Hackney, Inez Donaldson, Tom Stott, John Rooks, Hilton Pate, and Tom Douglas Williams. Other items: Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Buie attended the singing convention in Marianna on Sunday. (Mr. Buie was a piano salesman and tuner and they lived in the house where Dr. Bailey now has her medical practice.) Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Swindle were visitors in Marianna last Sunday in attendance upon the Jackson County Singing Convention. Mr. and Mrs. Howard Dannelly and little daughter Marianne of DeFuniak Springs, and Miss Annie Margaret Williams of Milton, spent Sunday in Bonifay with the E. A. Williams family. Mrs. Bettie Caudle had as guests rst of the week her sister, Mrs. J. S. Wynn and son, Joe Wynn; a nephew, Bobby Allen, Mrs. Robert Wynn and Mrs. Link Born, all of Clarksville, Texas. They were enroute to Jacksonville where Joe will be stationed at the U.S. Air base. He has just completed his training as aviation mechanic at the navy yard at Norfolk, Va.Some will remember that Mrs. Caudle was the beloved Home Demonstration Agent in Holmes County for a number of years working with home-makers and 4-H girls in many home improvement projects and taking girls to short courses, etc. The announcement that the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. T. McDonald had been taken to the Childrens Hospital in Umatila where she has been for several weeks reminds of the scourge that affected so many children and young adults of that day, Polio. Many will remember Lorene McDonald Coomer who taught special education at Bonifay Elementary School. She attended and University of West Florida when I did and often rode with me. She was an inspiration to all of us in the way she achieved the things she did in spite of her Physical limitations. The old Advertisers are always a good source for a look back at the way things used to be. I appreciate all the positive feedback I get from everyone. That is what keeps me scrambling from week to week to provide material worthy of your time. Looking back in the Holmes County Times-AdvertiserUncover your family story CAROL KENTEditorHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison moonshine stills on the Florida and Alabama lines. Asa was one of those moonshiners. According to a 1890 news report by the Daily Morning Astorian, a bloody ght occurred in Bonifay that December when moonshiners led an attack on the posse after it raided several stills in Holmes County. More than 150 shots were red no small number in the days before repeating arms were common. Asa McNeil would later be sentenced to life in prison for his role in the ambush. The family story is that a lawyer talked McNeil into turning himself in, and in exchange, hed get McNeil out of jail, and theyd split the $500 reward. The lawyers promise didnt hold, however, and McNeil died in 1893 while in the jail in Pensacola at the age of 40. A Supreme Court case later ensued after the attorney was denied payment because he had been deputized, and authorities said McNeils capture was simply his duty. The attorney ultimately won his reward. Were certainly glad he had to ght for it, Roberts said. Those court records are why we have as much information as we do today. But thats just the beginning of the story. Nobody I could nd knew anything more about it, McNeil said. I was beginning to wonder if there wasnt something wrong with the story. Then, a chance encounter in the 1960s put McNeil in contact with a man who could con rm at least part of the story. I happened to see this man while I was out hunting, and we got to talking, McNeil said. He told me he remembered coming home from town with his daddy and being told, Now, when we pass by this house, youre gonna see a man sitting on his porch. Hes wanted by the law, but dont you say anything. He told me he remembered seeing the man just as his daddy said, and that he had a beard and an octagon barreled ri e leaning on the porch. I was always told my grandfather never went anywhere without that gun. Years later, Bills daughter, Angie Roberts, became interested in genealogy and sought to help her dad nd answers. What she found was that McNeil wasnt just a moonshiner; he was a respected member of the Florida House of Representatives. That was one of the last things I expected, Roberts said. McNeil represented then Holmes County seat Cerro Gordo in 1889, serving in the Extra Session of the House of Representatives and on the Postal Route Committee. He had a reputation as a desperado because of the moonshining, but turns out, he held a position of respect, Roberts said. Perhaps more ironically, Asas son, Eddy McNeil, grew up to serve as Constable for Defuniak Springs. Meanwhile, Roberts and McNeil would like to know more about this part of their family history. Asas parents were Acey and Sarah McNeil, and his siblings were James, Andrew, Harriet, Josaphine, Newton and Sarah. The 1860 Census shows them living in Jackson County. If anyone knows anything about Asas daughters, Willie L. McNeil (called Aunt Will), who married Daniel Cotton in January 1904, or Doanie McNeil, who married JE Eubanks of Holmes County in November 1906, please contact me at 867-0440. Even if you dont know anything about the McNeil family, I encourage you to learn more about your own. We often are impatient, wanting time to pass quickly, thinking we may reach our goals faster. But what better way to get where we want to be than to consider where weve been? The past holds our legacy, our traditions, and a thousand other hidden treasures. And one day, it will be our turn to tell the stories.SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERThe McNeil family has been unable to locate a photo of its desperado patriarch, Asa McNeil. Above, his son, Eddy McNeil, a Constable for the town of Defunfak Springs, is pictured with his son, Justin McNeil; wife, Delia Ann (Slay) McNeil; and son Willie McNeil, Sr., who is also Bill McNeils father.

Ive been a part of the Beta Club for over six years, Dixon said. Back in Junior Beta, Sherley Owens was my sponsor, and she encouraged me to run for state of ce. Back then, I was kind of shy (and) wasnt good at speaking. I would get really embarrassed really easily, and she helped me run (for my rst of ce). Dixon said Owens helped her put together her rst two-minute speech and one-minute skit. I kind of overcame my fear of public speaking, she said. I won Junior Beta Club State President that year, and we were all so excited because Poplar Springs hadnt really been at the Beta Club State conventions. We never really won anything, but that year, we won a lot in several competitions. We really gave it our all that year. After that, I made up my mind that I wanted to do it again in Senior Beta, and after State Convention, I went to a Broyhill Leadership Conference in South Carolina and to Nationals in Louisville, Ky. She said it was those competitions that instilled in her the desire to compete. I really liked traveling to new places and speaking to people, Dixon said. Mrs. Owens helped me. She was really supportive, and shed been a Beta Club sponsor for 20 years. In her ninth and 10th grade year in Senior Beta, Dixon said she entered several competitions, however, she knew she wanted to run for state president. Her Senior Beta sponsor, Teresa Culbreth, made her aware of the hard work and dedication it would take and helped prepare her for the work ahead. So we got our skit together, and I got my speech together, Dixon said. We got to the convention, and we practiced. I campaigned and talked to as many people as I could, trying to relate to people because were a small school in comparison to the other schools that were there, Dixon said. I really didnt go down there expecting to win because the other schools had close to 100 people there, and we had 30. I got on a personal level when I talked with people everywhere I went, even if it was in the mall or at the convention. The next day, after her speech and skit she was surprised to nd that she had won. I was just so excited, and now Im going to Nationals in Richmond, Va. to run for the National Beta Club President, Dixon said. Im just so excited because this has been my whole experience with the Beta Club. The Beta Club has been about academics, integrity, respecting others. She said she feels Beta Club is the best club for character building. It encourages students to behave well in class and to keep their grades up, she said. I think its the best club anyone could be a part of. Dixon also said that she plans on going into dentistry, and shes active in her church. Ive gone from architect, to pharmacist, to dentist over the past few years, Dixon said. Ive always been really strong in church, and ever since I was a little girl, Ive been singing in church. Im the worship leader every Sunday and Wednesday for our youth group. I just really think God is calling me to be in the ministry. Ever since I was a little girl, Ive felt that strong pull on my heart, but Ive never really accepted it until this year because people in the ministry know they dont make a lot of money, or theyre constantly moving around; its just really an iffy job where you really have to trust in the Lord. She said she knew she could easily go into dentistry with her hard work, dedication and good grades. I know that job will bring stability and a steady income. However I know I wont be satis ed unless I give my whole life to God and completely submit to Him, Dixon said. I feel like everyone is searching for satisfaction in life. No matter what kind of life you have, all the money in the world; it doesnt matter how much you accomplish here, you get satisfaction and happiness from your relationship with the Lord and helping and serving others.By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com VERNON Its been seven years since popular Washington County teen Britney Wright disappeared from her Vernon home, but her family hasnt given up looking for answers.

Gun legislation at forefront againTALLAHASSEE (AP) Floridas gun-friendly nature will be scrutinized during the 2014 legislative session as bills that would modify the states stand your ground law and another allowing warning shots will be considered, a marked contrast from the 2013 session in which no major gun legislation was passed. Several prominent shootings that have drawn national attention to Floridas gun laws have sparked the bills, which will be considered after the Legislature convenes Tuesday. There was the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who had been accused in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. There was the case of Marissa Alexander, who received 20 years in prison for ring a warning shot at her abusive husband. In another case, Michael Dunn was recently found guilty of second-degree attempted murder after shooting into a car full of teenagers, killing Jordan Davis, in Jacksonville. And nally, former Tampa police ofcer Curtis Reeves is in jail awaiting trial after he shot and killed Chad Oulson during an argument over texting in a movie theater. He is charged with second-degree murder, but is claiming self-defense. The parents of Martin and Davis are scheduled to meet with legislators March 10 to address the stand your ground law and how they think it should be changed. That law says people who are not involved in illegal activity have the right to stand their ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if they reasonably believe it was necessary to avoid death or great bodily harm. Its critical that the Legislature take a look at what the country and the world is looking at Florida and recognize that we dont look good right now as it relates to stand your ground, as it relates to self-defense laws that we have on the books, said Rep. Mia Jones, D-Jacksonville. We need to re-evaluate them, we need to make sure that we have laws on the books that are going to allow our young people to walk the streets doing those things that young people do and not have to worry about being killed as a result of it. But Florida Republicans, who control the Legislature and the governors ofce, rmly embrace the stand your ground law and any sweeping changes are likely to be blocked. I havent seen any changes to stand your ground that I think are necessary or that people have made a compelling case that would make a difference, said House Speaker Will Weatherford. The Alexander case has spurred the development of what is being referred to as the warning shot bill. Alexander says she red a bullet at a wall in 2010 to scare off her husband when she felt he was threatening her. Her conviction was thrown out by an appeals court and a new trial scheduled. Greg Evers, R-Pensacola, has sponsored the bill that more accurately addresses -20-life in self-defense cases. Passed in 1999, the 10-20-life law requires lengthy sentences for specic felony rearm convictions. The judge who sentenced Alexander to 20 years felt he had no choice under the law. The warning shot changes have the support of lobbyist and former National Rie Association president Marion Hammer, who has Tallahassees most-powerful voice on gun laws. But opponents of the proposed changes worry they will cause more people to re shots. Youre telling people, I can shoot a warning shot, Sen. Christopher Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, said. The Legislature is telling me to shoot a warning shot. And that warning shot may not be in the air. ... To me, thats inviting negligence. I dont want to encourage people to shoot more. Another prominent bill will be a stand your ground tweak with a facet directly related to the Zimmerman trial. The bill is co-sponsored by David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, and Smith. Local law enforcement would be required to provide guidelines for neighborhood watch volunteers such as Zimmerman was. It would clarify that immunity under stand your ground does not apply to injured innocent bystanders. Smith is adamant about the intent portion of the bill that would give direction for what qualies as a stand your ground defense and what does not. We need to let judges know what is a stand your ground case. Smith said. The NRA has signed off on a lot of my intent language ... to give direction to judges what it should be used for and what it shouldnt be used for. Im real condent well be getting something out for that. Hammer is also pushing a bill to keep schools from punishing children pretending to play with guns or wearing clothes with pictures of rearms. She and the NRA also backs legislation aimed to prevent insurance companies from discriminating against gun owners. You cannot discriminate against people for exercising a constitutional right, Hammer said. Its that simple.You cannot discriminate against people for exercising a constitutional right.

Bristows sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, fell to her death a few months earlier. They ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe it. Along with his secretary, Robin Ellacott, Strike looks into Lulas death. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends and desperate designers as he makes his way to nd the truth. Did Lula Landry jump or was she pushed? This question ultimately becomes the heart of Strikes investigation. Delicious refreshments were served by Mrs. Brooks at the conclusion of the meeting.Special to ExtraThe doors were open, and the reed was ying at the Washington County Historical Society Museum on Feb. 22. Master weavers Sharon Hynes and Yvette Lerner shared the art of basket weaving with a mixed group of beginning and experienced basketry students. The basket of the day was a tote basket with a Shaker strap handle. While distributing materials, Hynes told students the tote was simple to make, very handy and quite sturdy. A woven Shaker strap made it easy to carry by hand or over your shoulder. The basket classes we offer through the museum are basic weaving and great for beginners, Hynes said. We provide a nice variety of reed different colors and widths, at to round, along with sea grasses and embellishments. No two baskets are alike we encourage students to express their creativity as they weave. From an historical point of view, baskets have been around thousands of years, said Museum Director Dorothy Odom. It is one of the widest spread crafts in history. We have several nice examples of old baskets from Washington Countys past in our Native American display. Basketry is an important skill, and we welcome the opportunity to help to keep the craft alive. In mid-March we look forward to offering an Easter basket weaving class. The Washington County Historical Society Museum is at 685 Seventh St. in downtown Chipley. The hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m. to noon rst Saturdays.

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3Dr. Mark Stickney, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently mentioned in the article Extreme Groomers Give Dogs Dazzle regarding creative and eccentric grooming for dogs. Everything from Mohawks, ower designs and temporary paint tattoos are created on the animal for bonding between a person and their pooch. Harmless yet extravagant, this extreme grooming fad is becoming increasingly popular among dog owners. Though Dr. Stickney admits in the article this type of grooming is not for him, he does agree you should always be sure to keep up with your pets basic grooming. You dont want to give them a bath more than once a week unless told to do so by your veterinarian for some sort of skin condition. Any more frequently than that will only serve to dry out their skin, Stickney said. If you have an unruly pooch that doesnt enjoy getting wet, then some positive reinforcement should usually do the trick. One way to encourage them is to use a positive reinforcement, such as a treat, whenever you put them in a situation where theyre going to get their face or paws wet, Stickney said. Also, dont go overboard the rst couple of times you bathe them. Easing them into the routine by only putting them in toe deep in the tub is a great way to start. Giving your cat a bath can provide a whole new meaning to the word unpleasant. Lucky for us feline lovers, cats do a good enough job of keeping themselves clean without our intervention. Unless your cat is just lthy, its best not to struggle with routinely cleaning them, Stickney said. If they do need to be cleaned, the easiest way to do so would be to buy a waterless shampoo you can simply rub into their skin and then rub out. As far as which shampoo to use, any type formulated especially for animals should work just ne. Assuming that your pet has healthy skin, youll want to use a shampoo specically formulated for dogs or cats, Stickney said. If, however, your pet has a certain skin condition or irregularity, then consulting your veterinarian about which shampoo to use would be your safest bet. One thing that you see commonly with animals that have a lot of loose skin and skin folds is they will get yeast or bacterial infections in those folds, Stickney said. In that case, youll want to consult with your veterinarian, as they will probably recommend bathing them more frequently and with some type of medicated shampoo. Though it might not be necessary to sculpt your dogs fur into exotic jungle scenes, as mentioned in the Extreme Groomers article, basic grooming and upkeep is vital to your pets health and happiness. and soreness aches Special to ExtraCottondale High School junior Breanna Harrell and Altha School junior Brad Pearson were named West Florida Electrics Youth Tour competition winners on Feb. 20.

These students will represent WFEC on the National Rural Electric Youth Tour June 14-19, when they travel to Washington, D.C., with more than 30 other Florida students to join more than 1,500 high school juniors representing co-ops from across the country.

Something this important cannot be jumped into at the last minute. 1. Obey the laws of health. Some people violate the basic rules of good health and exercise and expect God to bail them out of an unhealthy lifestyle. At times people do more than they are physically capable of doing and their bodies out. It is amazing how much healing a good rest will bring into a worn-out body. Divine healing is no substitute for good habits of health and a healthy lifestyle. The Bible tells us that whatsoever we sow, that shall we also reap. 2. Examine for hidden sin. Some people harbor secret sins expecting God to turn a blind eye to this. Sin, fundamentally, will come between a person and Gods provision. Every aspect of sin in our life must be confessed and dealt with before we pray for healing. Sin sometimes is so insidious it takes a real work of the Holy Spirit to uncover it. Until sin is confessed, no amount of prayer or commanding in Jesus name, will bring the healing touch of God. 3. Spiritual warfare. Often the enemys attacks on the Christian are so vicious that health is wrecked. Job is a good example of this in the Old Testament. Some illnesses have a demonic connection. Not all, a discerning spirit needs to verify if the sickness is of the enemy or not. Normal prayer will not touch this. Such times call for a person to have these demonic powers cast out of their life. 4. Thorn in the esh. This is probably a rare instance but it does happen. The apostle Paul had what he called a thorn in the esh. When such an occasion happens, no amount of prayer will take it away. Paul prayed three times and then God told him to stop praying for that. Not every illness is a thorn in the esh. This is a special provision of God to accomplish a speci c purpose. 5. Prayer and fasting. Some illnesses call for spiritual discipline above the ordinary. This discipline rest upon those who are praying for someone who was sick. Often the sick person has no strength to engage in prayer for himself. There needs to be in every local congregation a band of believers who give themselves to this ministry of prayer and fasting especially for those who are sick. With every advancement of medical technology, people seem to be getting sicker and sicker. Gods people need to know how to break the power of sickness. 6. Call for the elders of the church. This is the basic New Testament instruction. Never has the church been instructed to chase after some celebrity healer, but rather we are to submit to the authority of the local church. When things are done outside of the local church, it is easy to bypass Gods simple provision 7. God does heal today. There is too much evidence to the contrary. However, God in every generation and dispensation works within the con nes of clearly established guidelines. To get all God has for us we need to be so positioned that God can have all of us.Special to ExtraFirst Baptist Church in Bonifay will host the annual evangelistic meeting March 27-28.
