The measure is expected to mean an annual savings of between $18 and $25 for vehicle owners here. The Legislature raised the fees in 2009, along with others associated with drivers licenses, drivers records and ID cards. The move was meant to generate revenue at a time when the states nances were tight. Despite backing the fees in 2009, Republican legislative leaders supported the rollback, which is effective Sept. 1. From day one of the 2014 legislative session, Gov. (Rick) Scott and the Florida Legislature committed to making a reduction in vehicle fees the centerpiece of meaningful tax relief for Floridas families, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. Tag fee rollback effective Sept. 1 There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag. That fee is around $225, and thats a big fee. It can be tough to pay that.Bill Bell, Holmes County tax collector See ROLLBACK A2

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 9, 2014CLA state president from Ponce de Leon in over a decade. It may seem like something easy to have three state presidents from Holmes County, but its something big, especially if you consider who we were competing against, and that includes the big schools from south Florida. English said he was planning on enrolling at the University of Florida next year. Young said one of the biggest supporters of the Beta Club and a longterm sponsor is presently a member of the Holmes District School Board, Shirley Owens. Beta is the nations largest independent, nonpro t, educational youth organization committed to recognizing and promoting high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing worthy character, fostering leadership skills and encouraging service to others, Young said. The club was established in 1934, and you may not know this, but Holmes County High School is one of the oldest charter members, becoming a member in 1940. There are 17 board members on the National Beta Club Board of Directors, with my mother being a representative for Florida and a national sponsor for years and years. Next to speak was State Secretary for Junior Beta Club Madison Ealum of Bonifay Middle School, who said she is planning on attending Auburn University to become a pharmacist. Young then introduced Senior Beta State WESTVILLE from page A1President Cami Dixon from Poplar Springs High School. Mrs. Owens really helped me in the sixthgrade year, which is when I started in Junior Beta, Dixon said. I was very, very shy and not really much of a speaker, but Mrs. Owens seen something in me and worked with me constantly to work hard. Then I went to competition and seen that becoming president of the State of Florida was something that I really wanted, and I pushed hard to get there. She said God was the biggest factor in persevering. The Lord is a really big part of my life; He really helped me not to be afraid of those bigger schools and gave me the con dence I needed, Dixon said. Through the Beta Club, I learned how to be a leader and a good role model to younger children. When I got to Senior Beta, I was a little upset due to the lack of participation in Senior Beta, so I prayed and asked God that if He would help me though that no matter where I go I would give Him all the glory. God answered her prayers, she said, leading her now to the upcoming national competition, where she will be running for National Beta Club president. I want to give God the glory and raise better club awareness, Dixon said. Weve even got a campaign going that students mention Beta on Facebook and other social media with a # oridabetaclub in their posts; Im looking forward to future conventions. Dixon said she is planning on going into the ministry when she graduates. Young reminded the Bonifay Kiwanis Club members that the reason they work hard is to bene t the children of Holmes County. I know come October, when youre tired and wondering what in the world youre doing there, just remember that every bit of money we raise helps support our local children, Young said. Bonifay Kiwanis Club President Sandy Spear concurred with Young about how easy it is to lose focus on the purpose and goal. We tend to forget what were doing this for, Spear said. People must know why we put on the rodeo year after year. We are a group of volunteers that strive to change the lives of our children one child at a time, and thats what its all about.

They tabled any action to be taken on the potentially dead tree behind the City Hall until more estimates are researched and presented at the next council meeting. After a lengthy discussion with the towns re chief, the Council approved replacing three, 10-pound re extinguishers at the volunteer re department and getting an estimate for the remaining re extinguishers that might need replacing throughout the towns municipal buildings. The next meeting of the Westville Town Council is set for 7 p.m. May 6. KIWANIS from page A1I am pleased to see (the) bill become the centerpiece of the governors $500 million Its Your Money tax cut and honored to witness this recurring reduction in vehicle registration fees become law here today. Washington County Tax Collector Ken Naker reminds residents who still need to renew before September that they should renew for only one year in order to receive the savings for the next time their renewal is due. In fact, Naker is temporarily removing the two-year renewal option on notice statements to help ensure motorists here dont lose out. Beginning Sept. 1, 2014, most people will see an average savings of about $18 to $25 depending on vehicle type on their tag registrations and renewals, Naker said. While this is good news for some, its not for the thousands of motor vehicle owners statewide who have already renewed for two years. The legislation prohibits any refunds for the higher fees paid prior to the Sept. 1 effective date, so I will be temporarily removing the two-year renewal option offered on the tag renewal notices mailed out each month. This option will still be available if desired, but again, there will be no bene t from the registration fee reduction. Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell agrees and added that he and other tax collectors statewide are pleased at the bills passage. Im extremely happy the Legislature was able to get this passed and that the citizens are going to get a reduction in the fees theyre having to pay, Bell said. When this rst took place in 2009, our Association of Tax Collectors was very concerned and expressed disapproval at increasing the fees so dramatically. Bell also said he hopes this reduction might serve as a gateway for others. There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag, he said. That fee is around $225, and thats a big fee. It can be tough to pay that. For more information on how the bill affects their vehicle registration, Washington County residents may call Naker at 638-6275, and Holmes County residents can reach Bell at 547-1115.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com APage 4Section Our VIEWDear Editor, You may not be aware or think that it will affect you, but the Social Security of ce in Gadsden County closed April 1. Gadsden County senior citizens will no longer have a place to resolve problems or even ask questions about the bene ts they worked for all their lives. Many of these seniors have no access to computers or are not familiar with them, and the small monthly checks they receive do not include travel expenses to go to facilities 30 miles away. Since Social Security is a federal program, shouldnt our congressman in Washington be taking the lead on this? Congressman Steve Southerland, according to his newsletter, authored a letter March 18 to the U.S. Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn W. Colvin requesting a meeting regarding the closure of the Social Security Administration of ce in Quincy. A letter requesting a meeting! Was that some kind of April Fools joke, or was it an intentional delay? Even if Mrs. Colvin received the letter and responded, it sometimes takes two weeks for a letter to reach a congressman due to the intense scrutiny by law enforcement. The Social Security of ce in Washington is not hard to nd. It is two blocks past K Street. Congressman Southerland should know where that is. A short walk, an email, or a phone call could have facilitated a meeting as soon as he heard about the proposed closing. It is much harder to reverse something after it is done than to negotiate to stop it beforehand. Maybe thats one reason it closed; the letter may still be in the mail. I suppose the announcement of his requesting a meeting with the SS Administrator does look good in Congressman Southerlands newsletter since he faces a very strong opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, in the election this November. To my knowledge, neither the occurrence nor the outcome of the meeting with Mrs. Colvin has been made public. It seems unlikely that a meeting with Congressman Southerland would be very productive anyway, since he follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. It would certainly upset billionaire coal and gas magnates like the Koch brothers who have made tremendous donations to Southerlands campaign. It was just announced by the Tampa Bay Times that in the next few weeks you will see yet another TV ad praising Southerland for his opposition to Obamacare. The billionaire Koch brothers funded AFP pays for the $150,000 ad. They already spent $160,000 to air one in February, because Southerland is considered to be one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation. The ad says, He puts us rst, not special interests. Ironically, the ad itself is paid for by special interests. It is a good thing we have leaders on the local level like Gadsden County Commissioner Mrs. Brenda Holt, who is in the process of making social security services available at other locations and proposing other options on how the of ce can stay open and still save money. I am on Social Security, and I appreciate the good work Mrs. Holt is doing. If our present Washington politician lets this happen in Mrs. Holts county it can happen in other counties throughout our district.Jim ClementsPanama CityWednesday, April 9, 2014Theres a lot to learn if well slow down HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

There are many well-kept lawns and yards where people take pride in their surroundings and add pleasure to visitors and home folk alike. For an especially beautiful spot right now, visit the Bonifay City Cemetery. Or just drive down most any residential street including Waukesha in Bonifay for a riot of pinks, fuchsias and reds. On the other hand, when we drive out and leave the main highways where state or county prisoners or ARC students keep the roadsides presentable onto some of the outlying county roads, a sorry sight greets the eye. The closer to a fast-food restaurant, the more dense the litter. We have several reputable garbage companies who come to your door to pick up your trash and a number of items can also be recycled at the center located out past Holmes Correctional facility. Holmes County Recycle Center accepts aluminum cans, paper, tin and metal of all description. In addition they have amnesty days frequently when they can accept other things such as paints, thinners, insecticide, farm chemicals, T.V.s, computers, and appliances.. In spite of all this, our county is possibly one of the trashiest around. Mark and Carla Templeton have moved into our community to try and make a living with their arts and crafts studio and their metal-working business. Having been brought up in the British schools of South Africa, Mark is appalled at the lack of respect for our rural roads. They live in a rural setting and love the tranquility of the country, the beauty of the landscapes, and the friendliness of the populace. However, they are sickened at the trash that litters the roadsides. They scour the roadsides and ditches for bottles that can be recycled into decorative objects and cant believe the junk that is carelessly tossed by the roads. He said they were taught in the British school to respect the environment. When I traveled in England and Scotland several years ago, I was struck by the cleanliness of the roadsides. N-O-T-H-IN-G was thrown out along the roads. In fact, nothing was sold in disposable containers. Here, I see pick-ups parked with their beds lled with garbage. As they drive down the road, it ies out, or is tossed out. Others drive down the road and toss aluminum cans and other trash by the roadside. Those cans take years and years to break down. We are a population on the move and in a hurry, but we must begin to care about our roadways, our rivers and streams where much of the litter winds up. Several years ago, we had a pastor speak in our church whose wife had left him and their sons because she was tired of picking up after them. Too late, he realized that he had to re-think his attitude about his family life. He learned to ask himself, Who is less important than I that they should pick up my dirty clothes or my shoes Ive left in the family room, or the drink can I didnt reach the garbage can with? Should the County stretch its budget and pay to clean up messes I have made? If anyone asked me, What is the one thing you would like to teach young people or just people in general? I would respond, I would teach them to be responsible for their own actions. That includes cleaning up your own mess. Placing your garbage into a trash can, Recycling as many items as you reasonably can. Mark suggested that the schools might do more to promote keeping our environment beautiful, and some already do that. But like so many things children need to be taught, care for the environment should begin at home. Instead of allowing your child to see you toss a can beside the road, regularly take him on a nature walk, garbage bag in hand and pick up trash you come upon. Make it a race or a contest. Even though our county has no recycling trash pick-up, we can do it on our own and periodically haul it to the recycling center. We keep one can for cardboard, one for aluminum, one for tin cans, and one for our regular garbage. We are blessed to own a pick-up truck with which we can haul our own recyclables. It is a little extra trouble but it keeps a lot of stuff out of the land lls where it takes years for some of these materials to break down. In addition to recycling, there are any number of decorative and useful item that can be made if you are crafty. For example, we have a carpenter beetle trap made from an empty water bottle and a block of wood that is very effective. Tin or aluminum cans may be made into whirleygigs or bird houses. Glass bottles may be made into decorative garden art. We are only limited by imagination and skill. Agri-tourism is a movement we are hearing a lot about that will bring people to rural areas for a glimpse of the lifestyle which we value. We need to take pride in our environment and present a clean environment for our visitors. That will encourage them to take care of the beautiful treasure that we enjoy. Perhaps you could adopt a stretch of road to clean up and monitor. There is a law against littering and you can help enforce that law by reporting litters. Working together we can make our county a more healthful and beautiful place. We can make our community a more beautiful placeAn American History assignment in Faye Copes 10th grade class at Chipley High School once required that I interview someone who had lived through the World War II era. My father knew the perfect candidate. Grandmothers brother, GreatUncle Melton, not only fought, but was shot in the leg paratrooping over the Rhine River. He earned the Purple Heart. This held little signi cance, though, to a 15year-old kid who just wanted a good grade. Uncle Meltons lively blue eyes crinkled as he began to talk. I was soon squirming in my chair. Before he could nish droning on about a practical joking paratrooper buddy named Richard, I interrupted. Tell me what it was like to ght in combat?, I asked impatiently. Uncle Melton wanted to tell stories. All I wanted was to get through, go home and watch television. Arrogant in youth, my agenda was more important than what I could learn from him above and beyond what I had to have for a school assignment. Uncle Melton was a fading link to family history, but I was clueless. He passed away a few years later and, as time also passed, I grew to understand what an opportunity Id missed to learn more of my family legacy and the threads that bonded that eras brothers-inarms. Id give much now, to not only hear the rest of that yarn, but to also give my uncle the attention his years and life experiences deserved: to be heard and respected. Id like to hear now about Richard and what a great joke he played that still had my uncle laughing and telling the tale almost 50 years later. Why would we not want advice, stories and life experience from those who have already lived it? Who says we have to make all our own mistakes? Traditions, rituals, and good old stories were once passed from generation to generation. Doesnt seem to be happening much anymore. Our older generation holds great lessons for us: history, humor and homespun wisdom better than we can ever learn online. Its easy to grow impatient with the slow pace of our elders conversation. They hand-wrote letters and worked hours preparing just one meal. We dash off emails while waiting for the microwave to ping. Our older generation is ready to hand down to us the keys to the world keys that can unlock much of the mystery that bedevils our life. Listen to some of our elders. See the emotions they feel as they share memories. Its one of the best ways they can still contribute. Chances are, we all know a perfect candidate for this particular history lesson. If, that is, we can slow our pace long enough to listen. CAROL KENTEditorHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Social Security Of ce is closedWhats our congressman going to do about it? Letter to the EDITOR

The bill, which partly was inspired by the case of a Jasonville woman sentenced to 20 years in prison after ring a shot near her estranged husband during an altercation, passed the chamber 327. The woman, Marissa Alexander, is out on bail awaiting a new trial. The bill, which earlier received backing from the Republican-controlled House, now goes to the desk of Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Alexander had tried to assert a stand your ground defense, but a judge rejected her claim. She was sentenced under a 1999 law called 10-20-life in which mandatory sentences are imposed for using a gun in certain cases. That law requires that anyone who shows a gun in the commission of certain felonies receive an automatic 10 years in prison. If a gun is red, its an automatic 20 years under that law. Shoot and wound someone and the mandatory sentence is 25 years to life. The warning shot bill, however, would allow for instances of threatened use of force without falling under the rule of 10-20-life. NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer and supporters said 10-20-life wasnt intended to be used in selfdefense cases. This is an important bill because it stops the abuse of 10-20-life and keeps prosecutors from using it against people who use lawful self-defense, Hammer said. She added that 10-20-life is not about self-defense. Self-defense is a constitutional right. 10-20-life was passed to stop prosecutors and judges from slapping gun-wielding criminals on the wrist and giving them reduced sentences or probation. Opponents of the proposed changes, however, argued that the so-called warning shot legislation would encourage more people to re weapons. Theres two magic words the publics going to hear warning shot, Sen. Chris Smith, R-Fort Lauderdale, said. I just dont think its responsible right now to encourage people to give warning shots in the air, in a crowd or wherever. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Greg Evers, a Republican from Pensacola. Evers opposes the phrase warning shot and emphasized that the bill is all about self-defense. This bill, if you read it, does not say anything about a warning shot, Evers said. What this bill does, it says, if you are threatened you can use equal or threatened use of force to protect yourself. This is about self-defense. This is about the right thing to do. Alexander attempted to use a stand your ground defense which allows the use of lethal force when threatened with death or great bodily harm. The defense failed because she did not actually shoot her husband. An aide to Scott said he will give the bill close scrutiny. Gov. Scott supports the Second Amendment and Floridas selfdefense laws, spokesman John Tupps said. He looks forward to reviewing this legislation in its entirety now that it has been approved by both the House and the Senate.Warning shot bill passes Florida Senate LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, April 9, 2014 hHOlmesLMES cCOUntNTY cCOUrtRT dDOcketCKET

A6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 9, 2014By FRANK SARGEANTSpecial to Times-Advertiser The kingsh are in at Tampa! Thats big news for Panhandle anglers, because it means the run of the big mackerel has nally started to move north, after stalling for some time off Fort Myers this year because of a wave of late cold fronts. Water temperatures in the Panhandle still are at about 65 degrees, and thats too cold for any signicant number of kings, but all it will take is a week of warm, sunny weather to make things right. When the water hits 68 degrees, the bait will move, and with it will come the kings to say nothing of the Spanish, the cobia, the bonito and a bit of everything else. Scientists with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute have learned that most of the kings that summer in Northwest Florida spend winters off the Florida Keys and in the Atlantic as far north as Palm Beach, but as soon as the waters begin to warm in spring, the sh move back into the Gulf and head north. They usually arrive in strength in the Panhandle shortly after April 15, with May through October offering steady action. When the big schools of cigar minnows and herring arrive, the kings will be with them, anywhere from a half-mile off the beach to the wrecks 15 miles out and farther. A lot of sh also typically run the breaks offshore at 80 and at 160 feet. Kings are members of the tuna family, but are for the most part found on the coastal shelf; they are green water sh rather than the true pelagics of the open sea. Theyre caught with some regularity from Panhandle piers. School kings, aka snakes, are slender speedsters that average 7 to 10 pounds; they make up the bulk of the kingsh schools. But there are also plenty of smokers in the mix, sh of 20 pounds and up, which literally are capable of making a misty smoke y from a reel as they scream line off at 30 miles an hour. Kings reach lengths approaching 6 feet and weights more than 90 pounds in a lifespan maxing out close to 20 years. The current IGFA all-tackle record is 93 pounds, caught in Puerto Rico in 1999. Fish of 50 pounds are caught occasionally in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but most of the line class records come in winter around the Florida Keys. Catching school kings is fairly straightforward; most anglers nd the sh by watching for diving birds or for other boats already on the school and proceed to troll a 5inch Clark or Drone spoon weighted with a trolling lead of a couple ounces around the outer edges of the school, or around articial or natural reefs and current breaks. Pulling the spoon behind a No. 2 or 3 planer also is highly effective, and during the dawn bite when the sh are often on top, they can be caught on unweighted spoons and jigs and even occasionally on a big topwater lure worked very fast. Kings can also be caught on a number of big lures including the Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow Magnum, the Manns Stretch 25 and Stretch 30 and Mirrolure 113MR, which can be trolled at speeds to 9 knots without broaching its a great locator lure. Some also do well with a large chrome Rat-L-Trap, a vibrating slab lure. Another Panhandle favorite for these schoolers is a cigar minnow on a feather-duster rig the tubular body of the cigar minnow trolls true while many at-sided bait species tend to spin. Trolling speed is typically 4 to 6 knots. You can catch a lot of kings by just pulling a rigged minnow at sunrise while everybody else is trying to catch live bait. Frozen cigar minnows are available at all Panhandle bait shops. For the larger kings, live bait is generally best bet; a large blue-runner or thread herring (aka greenback) on a stinger rig is the ticket. Most anglers use No. 6 copper-color wire as leader to prevent cutoffs on the razor-like teeth of the mackerels. One small triple-X strong treble goes through the nostrils, and a second dangles along the sides about 6 inches back. The rig prevents kings chomping off the baitsh tail without getting hooked, as they frequently do otherwise. The baits often can be caught around channel markers on a sabiki rig, a chain of small ies. These channel markers also often hold both kings and Spanish never pass one up if youre hunting sh. The live baits are eased along at walking speed, considerably slower than rigged baits or spoons. Some anglers like to lay down a scent trail by dragging a chum bag chopped baitsh, dogfood and menhaden oil is a popular mix as they troll a circular pattern around a reef or hard bottom area, or simply circle baitsh schools. A favorite trick of tournament anglers is to sh a live bait down the color break line that makes up outside the larger inlets on strong outgoing tides on the outside of this line is clear water, pale green, while on the inside the water is black from the tanninstained bays. Theres usually a lot of grass oating down the line, and lots of crabs and other edibles in the eddies. The anglers slowly work the live baits down the green side of this line. Either way, once the migration arrives, the action is near certain.

By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Khaliel Spearman is aware of history in the Halifax All-Star Classic. Now hes aware of his place in it. The Rutherford senior set the overall scoring record with 37 points in leading the East to a 120-115 win over the West at the Billy Harrison Field House on Saturday. His achievement was nearly matched by the Wests Austin Carnley, who broke a long-standing team record with 30 points. The outcome also was the highest-scoring game in the 10-year history of the event. Spearman battled East teammate Alex Brown for scoring honors early in the second half and nished the nal 20 minutes with 28 points. He and Brown were instrumental in crafting a 12-2 run in 70 seconds that turned a vepoint lead into a 99-84 East cushion with 8:42 to play. Spearman had 31 points, one more than previous East scoring record-holder Jon Wade, with a little more than 2 minutes to go. East coaches Travis Blanton and Thomas Register called timeout in the nal minutes and informed Spearman that he was nearing Taliah Moores overall mark of 33 set last year. Spearman tied Moore with a jumper and surpassed her with four free throws, the nal two capping the score. Spearman spoke fondly of Wade, who also played at Rutherford, during Media Day on Friday. Spearman joked Well, hes a good Jon Wade, but hes no Khaliel Spearman. No, indeed, as Spearman became the fourth Ram to earn MVP honors since the award was instituted in 2007. With all of these great teammates I have, I didnt expect this, Spearman said. Its a great accomplishment and it feels good to continue the tradition of Rudd (Rutherford) winning that MVP. The East also extended its winning streak to four games and secured the seventh win in the series. The triumph looked to be in doubt for 30 minutes, as Carnley of Paxton hit four of his nine 3-pointers in the rst half and the West trailed by only two points, 53-51. Carnley, who was the West MVP, and Ronnie Baylark, who scored 25 points, helped the West build a 65-55 lead three minutes into the second half. Spearmans 3-pointer 6 minutes later capped an East rally for an 82-80 lead. The East didnt trail again. We gave them a run for their money, said Carnley, who broke Jeremy Paynes West record of 27 points set in the inaugural year of 2005. I just wanted to do my best to help my team, but Im not gonna lie, it feels good to set the scoring record. Spearman agreed that the individual accolade was satisfying and the new basketball he received as MVP also would be a nice addition to his pickup games. But he said there was more to the honor and more to the victory. This is to show people that we put in the work and work hard at Rutherford, Spearman said.

NEWS HERALD-AREA TEAMS SWEEP HALIFAX ALL-STAR CLASSICBEASTS OF THE EASTBy BRANDON WALKERHalifax Media Services PANAMA CITY In the fall, Malone High School senior Curteeona Brelove will take her talents to Virginia Commonwealth University. On Saturday, however, she put on one last show for local fans at the 10th Halifax All-Star Classic at Gulf Coast State College. Brelove, a 6-foot-3 forward, scored a team-high 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to help the East team earn an 81-73 win over the West in the game that pits seniors from The News Heralds eightcounty area against representatives from Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties. I really like this team a lot, said Brelove, who scored 14 of her 24 points in the rst half. We had good chemistry, played well together. It means a lot to play well today. The victory for the East is the third in 10 years, and rst since 2012. For Chipley coach Kimberly Tuel, the win was satisfying. We had a lot of talent, said Tuel, who led her team to the Class 1A state championship game this season. Any time you get this much talent together, its fun to coach. Choctawhatchee guard Brittany Washington, the Wests Most Valuable Player, led all scorers with 25 points. For the East, 11 players reached the scoring column, led by Breloves 24 and 15 from Sneads guard Tasherica McMillon. The East also enjoyed a 44-29 edge on the glass, an advantage it used to outscore the West 13-5 over the games nal three minutes. I thought their size was a big difference, said Paxton coach Steve Williams, who led his Lady Cats to the 1A state championship over Chipley. Our girls played hard and played together. I really enjoy coming over here to this game and seeing players get to play together that have been opponents all year. Its a great game. The East opened the game on a 9-0 scoring run and the West never fully recovered. The East led throughout, and the closest the West got was three points when Washington connected on a 3-pointer with three minutes left to cut the advantage to 68-65. Brelove and company were too much down the stretch on the way to the eightpoint win. I just wanted to come out and play my game, Brelove said.

WASHINGTON (AP) With Mideast peace talks on the verge of collapse, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared Friday that its reality check time on whether an agreement can be reached anytime soon after decades of bitterness between Israeli and Palestinian leaders. The U.S. will re-evaluate its role as mediator, he said. It was Kerrys most pessimistic take yet on the peace effort after almost nine months of frustrating talks with little progress to show. Kerry made clear that his push for peace is not yet over, and he said both sides claim to want to continue negotiating. But he also said that continuing setbacks in the process culminating this week with tit-for-tat moves by Israeli and Palestinian ofcials that have upended good-faith bargaining could force the U.S. to shift focus to other crises where Washington might have more success. We have an enormous amount on the plate, Kerry told reporters during a diplomatic visit to Rabat, Morocco, the end of a marathon trip that saw him jumping back and forth between Israel, Ramallah and Europe. He noted that the U.S. also is dealing with challenges in Ukraine, Iran and Syria, and he said, There are limits to the amount of time and effort the United States can spend if the parties themselves are unwilling to take constructive steps in order to be able to move forward. The nine months of talks are scheduled to end April 29, and Kerry has been pressing to have them continue through much of the rest of the year. But were not going to sit here indenitely, he said. So its reality check time, and we intend to evaluate precisely what the next steps will be. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he would anticipate that a conversation with the president is in the near future. Kerry has spent major portions of his 14 months as secretary of state pursuing an Israeli-Palestinian agreement despite the seemingly long odds. A collapse of the talks could be a diplomatic embarrassment for him and the administration and a danger in the region as well. Failed efforts in the past have led to major bouts of violence. On Friday, Palestinians red rockets at Israel, which responded with warplanes attacking military targets in the Gaza Strip. Uzi Rabi, director of Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University, said its doubtful the two sides will broker a nal peace agreement, given years of bitterness and sharp differences over borders, claims to Jerusalem and recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. But he said the talks should continue if only to ward off a new Palestinian uprising against Israelis that would surely lead to a surge in violence. I think the Americans know that the talks ultimately will fail, Rabi said. So why are they going on? Because its much better to talk than something which is much more problematic, like intifada. Intifada is the Arabic term for past Palestinian uprisings against Israel. The last one began in 2000, and more than 3,000 Palestinians and 1,000 Israelis were killed in several years of ghting. In the West Bank city of Ramallah, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat expressed hope Friday the talks would continue. But, he said, Palestinian leaders do not feel bound to follow Kerrys ground rules for negotiating if Israel fails to live up to its own commitments. We dont have anything to lose, Erekat said, after the moves and countermoves that Israeli and Palestinian ofcials have undertaken over the past week that have left the negotiations on life support. Already lacking signs of progress, the peace process was put into serious jeopardy last weekend when Israel refused to release a group of Palestinian prisoners it had said last summer it would free as part of the agreement to resume talks that had been stalled since 2011. Kerrys comments on Friday signaled that he and his team would be taking a step back from the peace process to test Israeli and Palestinian intentions.

Holmes and Washington Volunteer Fire Departments have historically received various funds through the volunteer re assistant program provided by the Florida Forest Service. The past scal year there were 22 wildres, burning 183 acres were suppressed in Holmes County; and 11 wildres burning 68 acres suppressed in Washington County. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Law Enforcement Investigator or Forest Rangers investigated all res during this time and seven notices of violations were issued in Holmes County and ve in Washington County. The Florida Forest Service issued 790 burning authorizations for burns in Holmes County. These burns consisted of 411 agriculture, 159 silviculture and 220 land clearing burns of 11,483 acres, authorization also was given for 1,164 pile burns in Holmes County. Authorizations for Washington County were 899 broadcast burns, 330 agriculture, 272 land clearing and 297 silvicultural burns of 12,678 acres, and 1,517 piles burns also were authorized in Washington County. During this period 48 landowner assists were provided including 11 mitigation projects that protected 131 homes with a value of more than $12,000,000. The department charges $108 per hour for re line plowing, $20 an acre for burning assistance and $22 for standby assistance. Florida forest service has the responsibility for issuing burn authorizations. On occasion, because of high re danger, the Florida Forest Service may restrict or suspend burning authorizations. To obtain burn authorizations, call 850-5477083, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. seven days a week. Florida Forest Service personnel conduct planned re prevention activities that include talks, school programs, personal contacts and appearances with Smokey Bear at approved functions upon request.

To obtain burn authorizations, call 850-547-7083, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. seven days a week. Bill would close medical clinic loopholeTALLAHASSEE (AP) There is one simple way for a Florida medical clinic to avoid being licensed and undergoing an annual inspection: Dont accept insurance. A bill moving through the Legislature would close that loophole for so-called cash-only clinics, which can escape government oversight because the statutory denition of a clinic is interpreted as an operation that takes third-party insurance. The bill (SB 746) sponsored by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, would require that all medical clinics be subject to licensure, renewal and inspection, whether they accept insurance or not. Many of the cash-only clinics are run by business people with no connection to the medical eld, but must hire a licensed doctor to oversee the operation and sign prescriptions. Because the clinics arent licensed, the state doesnt know how many exist. There is no regulation of clinics, it truly is the Wild West out there, said Kenneth Woliner, a Boca Raton physician who thinks the clinics should be regulated. He said nding clinics that run without oversight is simple: The places open, treat patients and then quickly move on. The doctors who are hired to run the clinics are often older doctors and they just need money and dont care, he said. Sobels bill is moving slowly, if at all. She looks at the disinterest in the statehouse as a problem of regionalism. Most of the unlicensed clinics are in her district and other parts of South Florida, so getting legislators from other parts of the state interested is difcult. This is often how the pill mills operate, Sobel said, referring to clinics and pharmacies that illicitly dispense prescription narcotics like painkillers. But Im not sure anyone up here knows that. They just dont have the problem to the extent we do. Kerrys patience wearing thin as Mideast peace talks falter

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News ExtraSpecial to the Times-AdvertiserMany of us can remember being cared for by our parents when we were injured as children. Whether cutting our leg while climbing a tree or swallowing one too many pieces of candy, our parents always came to the rescue with soothing words and a rst aid kit in hand. Because of our pets are beloved members of the family, shouldnt we do the same for them? Here are some tips and tricks to help ease your pets pain in case of emergency. Just like for people, there are some basic rst aid supplies for your pet to always have readily available in your home. A good idea is to have a pet rst aid kit so that you can concentrate on what you can do for your pet constructively rather than looking all over the place for something that might work but is less than ideal, said Dr. James Barr, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. However, the most important thing is to have the phone number of your local veterinarian in case of emergency, including what to do after hours. Some items to include in your rst aid kit could be an assortment of bandages, an instant cold pack, gauze and roll pads, medical gloves, triple antibiotic ointment, alcohol and antiseptic wipes, a slip-style leash, lubricating jelly, tongue depressors and tweezers/forceps. Knowing how to perform basic CPR on your pet and stop external bleeding by applying a pressure wrap are also important skills you should acquire. Two common examples of emergencies in which basic rst aid knowledge can be life-saving for your pet include exposure to toxins and excessive external bleeding. If your pet is exposed to a toxin, get the name of the toxin and try to gure out how much they have ingested, and then call your vet to give you further instructions, Barr said. If your pet is experiencing severe blood loss resulting from external bleeding, wrap the wound with a towel or bandage to help stop the bleeding, and apply pressure to help slow the loss of blood. Just remember that if being injured is traumatizing for us, imagine how it must be for our pets. In the event of an emergency, it is important to do everything you can to minimize their anxiety. This will not only help prevent further injury for them, but also to you and your family. One must be very careful with injured pets because they are unable to communicate with us and us with them, so they are often afraid, Barr said. That fear is then translated into aggression, and pets can injure even the best meaning bystander because they are in pain. Much like you would to a distraught person, it is best to talk gently to them using comforting words. Though rst aid is certainly not a substitute for proper veterinary care, it might be extremely helpful in preventing further injury and easing your pets pain. Keeping these tips in mind can save you a lot of troubles in the long run and even ultimately help to save your pets life.

Weve always had an evaluation system in place; however, it is now a national standard for any district participating in Race to the Top to adopt their requirements of evaluation, Superintendent Eddie Dixon said. The requirements exceed our own by a great deal, but I feel con dent that were up to the task. Also approved were invoices, warrant list, meeting minutes for the March 18 workshop and regular session, monthly nancial report and personnel recommendations.

Our charters are to help children, Young said. We give a lot to clubs to help send these students to state competitions. Its no small thing to say we have three state presidents in Holmes County and have really made their impression on a state level.

The measure is expected to mean an annual savings of between $18 and $25 for vehicle owners here. The Legislature raised the fees in 2009, along with others associated with drivers licenses, drivers records and ID cards. The move was meant to generate revenue at a time when the states nances were tight. Despite backing the fees in 2009, Republican legislative leaders supported the rollback, which is effective Sept. 1. From day one of the 2014 legislative session, Gov. (Rick) Scott and the Florida Legislature committed to making a reduction in vehicle fees the centerpiece of meaningful tax relief for Floridas families, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. Tag fee rollback effective Sept. 1 There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag. That fee is around $225, and thats a big fee. It can be tough to pay that. Bill Bell, Holmes County tax collector See ROLLBACK A2

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 9, 2014 CLA state president from Ponce de Leon in over a decade. It may seem like something easy to have three state presidents from Holmes County, but its something big, especially if you consider who we were competing against, and that includes the big schools from south Florida. English said he was planning on enrolling at the University of Florida next year. Young said one of the biggest supporters of the Beta Club and a longterm sponsor is presently a member of the Holmes District School Board, Shirley Owens. Beta is the nations largest independent, nonpro t, educational youth organization committed to recognizing and promoting high academic achievement, rewarding and nurturing worthy character, fostering leadership skills and encouraging service to others, Young said. The club was established in 1934, and you may not know this, but Holmes County High School is one of the oldest charter members, becoming a member in 1940. There are 17 board members on the National Beta Club Board of Directors, with my mother being a representative for Florida and a national sponsor for years and years. Next to speak was State Secretary for Junior Beta Club Madison Ealum of Bonifay Middle School, who said she is planning on attending Auburn University to become a pharmacist. Young then introduced Senior Beta State WESTVILLE from page A1 President Cami Dixon from Poplar Springs High School. Mrs. Owens really helped me in the sixthgrade year, which is when I started in Junior Beta, Dixon said. I was very, very shy and not really much of a speaker, but Mrs. Owens seen something in me and worked with me constantly to work hard. Then I went to competition and seen that becoming president of the State of Florida was something that I really wanted, and I pushed hard to get there. She said God was the biggest factor in persevering. The Lord is a really big part of my life; He really helped me not to be afraid of those bigger schools and gave me the con dence I needed, Dixon said. Through the Beta Club, I learned how to be a leader and a good role model to younger children. When I got to Senior Beta, I was a little upset due to the lack of participation in Senior Beta, so I prayed and asked God that if He would help me though that no matter where I go I would give Him all the glory. God answered her prayers, she said, leading her now to the upcoming national competition, where she will be running for National Beta Club president. I want to give God the glory and raise better club awareness, Dixon said. Weve even got a campaign going that students mention Beta on Facebook and other social media with a # oridabetaclub in their posts; Im looking forward to future conventions. Dixon said she is planning on going into the ministry when she graduates. Young reminded the Bonifay Kiwanis Club members that the reason they work hard is to bene t the children of Holmes County. I know come October, when youre tired and wondering what in the world youre doing there, just remember that every bit of money we raise helps support our local children, Young said. Bonifay Kiwanis Club President Sandy Spear concurred with Young about how easy it is to lose focus on the purpose and goal. We tend to forget what were doing this for, Spear said. People must know why we put on the rodeo year after year. We are a group of volunteers that strive to change the lives of our children one child at a time, and thats what its all about.

The Council approved of a free re-estimation with a revision of the towns insurance based on its newest buildings. They tabled any action to be taken on the potentially dead tree behind the City Hall until more estimates are researched and presented at the next council meeting. After a lengthy discussion with the towns re chief, the Council approved replacing three, 10-pound re extinguishers at the volunteer re department and getting an estimate for the remaining re extinguishers that might need replacing throughout the towns municipal buildings. The next meeting of the Westville Town Council is set for 7 p.m. May 6. KIWANIS from page A1 I am pleased to see (the) bill become the centerpiece of the governors $500 million Its Your Money tax cut and honored to witness this recurring reduction in vehicle registration fees become law here today. Washington County Tax Collector Ken Naker reminds residents who still need to renew before September that they should renew for only one year in order to receive the savings for the next time their renewal is due. In fact, Naker is temporarily removing the two-year renewal option on notice statements to help ensure motorists here dont lose out. Beginning Sept. 1, 2014, most people will see an average savings of about $18 to $25 depending on vehicle type on their tag registrations and renewals, Naker said. While this is good news for some, its not for the thousands of motor vehicle owners statewide who have already renewed for two years. The legislation prohibits any refunds for the higher fees paid prior to the Sept. 1 effective date, so I will be temporarily removing the two-year renewal option offered on the tag renewal notices mailed out each month. This option will still be available if desired, but again, there will be no bene t from the registration fee reduction. Holmes County Tax Collector Bill Bell agrees and added that he and other tax collectors statewide are pleased at the bills passage. Im extremely happy the Legislature was able to get this passed and that the citizens are going to get a reduction in the fees theyre having to pay, Bell said. When this rst took place in 2009, our Association of Tax Collectors was very concerned and expressed disapproval at increasing the fees so dramatically. Bell also said he hopes this reduction might serve as a gateway for others. There are other fees I hope to see reduced, such as the initial registration on a rst or additional vehicle tag, he said. That fee is around $225, and thats a big fee. It can be tough to pay that. For more information on how the bill affects their vehicle registration, Washington County residents may call Naker at 638-6275, and Holmes County residents can reach Bell at 547-1115.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com A Page 4 Section Our VIEW Dear Editor, You may not be aware or think that it will affect you, but the Social Security of ce in Gadsden County closed April 1. Gadsden County senior citizens will no longer have a place to resolve problems or even ask questions about the bene ts they worked for all their lives. Many of these seniors have no access to computers or are not familiar with them, and the small monthly checks they receive do not include travel expenses to go to facilities 30 miles away. Since Social Security is a federal program, shouldnt our congressman in Washington be taking the lead on this? Congressman Steve Southerland, according to his newsletter, authored a letter March 18 to the U.S. Commissioner of Social Security Carolyn W. Colvin requesting a meeting regarding the closure of the Social Security Administration of ce in Quincy. A letter requesting a meeting! Was that some kind of April Fools joke, or was it an intentional delay? Even if Mrs. Colvin received the letter and responded, it sometimes takes two weeks for a letter to reach a congressman due to the intense scrutiny by law enforcement. The Social Security of ce in Washington is not hard to nd. It is two blocks past K Street. Congressman Southerland should know where that is. A short walk, an email, or a phone call could have facilitated a meeting as soon as he heard about the proposed closing. It is much harder to reverse something after it is done than to negotiate to stop it beforehand. Maybe thats one reason it closed; the letter may still be in the mail. I suppose the announcement of his requesting a meeting with the SS Administrator does look good in Congressman Southerlands newsletter since he faces a very strong opponent, Mrs. Gwen Graham, in the election this November. To my knowledge, neither the occurrence nor the outcome of the meeting with Mrs. Colvin has been made public. It seems unlikely that a meeting with Congressman Southerland would be very productive anyway, since he follows the wishes of his Tea Party colleagues who have wanted to cut Social Security for years. It would certainly upset billionaire coal and gas magnates like the Koch brothers who have made tremendous donations to Southerlands campaign. It was just announced by the Tampa Bay Times that in the next few weeks you will see yet another TV ad praising Southerland for his opposition to Obamacare. The billionaire Koch brothers funded AFP pays for the $150,000 ad. They already spent $160,000 to air one in February, because Southerland is considered to be one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation. The ad says, He puts us rst, not special interests. Ironically, the ad itself is paid for by special interests. It is a good thing we have leaders on the local level like Gadsden County Commissioner Mrs. Brenda Holt, who is in the process of making social security services available at other locations and proposing other options on how the of ce can stay open and still save money. I am on Social Security, and I appreciate the good work Mrs. Holt is doing. If our present Washington politician lets this happen in Mrs. Holts county it can happen in other counties throughout our district.

There are many well-kept lawns and yards where people take pride in their surroundings and add pleasure to visitors and home folk alike. For an especially beautiful spot right now, visit the Bonifay City Cemetery. Or just drive down most any residential street including Waukesha in Bonifay for a riot of pinks, fuchsias and reds. On the other hand, when we drive out and leave the main highways where state or county prisoners or ARC students keep the roadsides presentable onto some of the outlying county roads, a sorry sight greets the eye. The closer to a fast-food restaurant, the more dense the litter. We have several reputable garbage companies who come to your door to pick up your trash and a number of items can also be recycled at the center located out past Holmes Correctional facility. Holmes County Recycle Center accepts aluminum cans, paper, tin and metal of all description. In addition they have amnesty days frequently when they can accept other things such as paints, thinners, insecticide, farm chemicals, T.V.s, computers, and appliances.. In spite of all this, our county is possibly one of the trashiest around. Mark and Carla Templeton have moved into our community to try and make a living with their arts and crafts studio and their metal-working business. Having been brought up in the British schools of South Africa, Mark is appalled at the lack of respect for our rural roads. They live in a rural setting and love the tranquility of the country, the beauty of the landscapes, and the friendliness of the populace. However, they are sickened at the trash that litters the roadsides. They scour the roadsides and ditches for bottles that can be recycled into decorative objects and cant believe the junk that is carelessly tossed by the roads. He said they were taught in the British school to respect the environment. When I traveled in England and Scotland several years ago, I was struck by the cleanliness of the roadsides. N-O-T-H-IN-G was thrown out along the roads. In fact, nothing was sold in disposable containers. Here, I see pick-ups parked with their beds lled with garbage. As they drive down the road, it ies out, or is tossed out. Others drive down the road and toss aluminum cans and other trash by the roadside. Those cans take years and years to break down. We are a population on the move and in a hurry, but we must begin to care about our roadways, our rivers and streams where much of the litter winds up. Several years ago, we had a pastor speak in our church whose wife had left him and their sons because she was tired of picking up after them. Too late, he realized that he had to re-think his attitude about his family life. He learned to ask himself, Who is less important than I that they should pick up my dirty clothes or my shoes Ive left in the family room, or the drink can I didnt reach the garbage can with? Should the County stretch its budget and pay to clean up messes I have made? If anyone asked me, What is the one thing you would like to teach young people or just people in general? I would respond, I would teach them to be responsible for their own actions. That includes cleaning up your own mess. Placing your garbage into a trash can, Recycling as many items as you reasonably can. Mark suggested that the schools might do more to promote keeping our environment beautiful, and some already do that. But like so many things children need to be taught, care for the environment should begin at home. Instead of allowing your child to see you toss a can beside the road, regularly take him on a nature walk, garbage bag in hand and pick up trash you come upon. Make it a race or a contest. Even though our county has no recycling trash pick-up, we can do it on our own and periodically haul it to the recycling center. We keep one can for cardboard, one for aluminum, one for tin cans, and one for our regular garbage. We are blessed to own a pick-up truck with which we can haul our own recyclables. It is a little extra trouble but it keeps a lot of stuff out of the land lls where it takes years for some of these materials to break down. In addition to recycling, there are any number of decorative and useful item that can be made if you are crafty. For example, we have a carpenter beetle trap made from an empty water bottle and a block of wood that is very effective. Tin or aluminum cans may be made into whirleygigs or bird houses. Glass bottles may be made into decorative garden art. We are only limited by imagination and skill. Agri-tourism is a movement we are hearing a lot about that will bring people to rural areas for a glimpse of the lifestyle which we value. We need to take pride in our environment and present a clean environment for our visitors. That will encourage them to take care of the beautiful treasure that we enjoy. Perhaps you could adopt a stretch of road to clean up and monitor. There is a law against littering and you can help enforce that law by reporting litters. Working together we can make our county a more healthful and beautiful place. We can make our community a more beautiful place An American History assignment in Faye Copes 10th grade class at Chipley High School once required that I interview someone who had lived through the World War II era. My father knew the perfect candidate. Grandmothers brother, GreatUncle Melton, not only fought, but was shot in the leg paratrooping over the Rhine River. He earned the Purple Heart. This held little signi cance, though, to a 15year-old kid who just wanted a good grade. Uncle Meltons lively blue eyes crinkled as he began to talk. I was soon squirming in my chair. Before he could nish droning on about a practical joking paratrooper buddy named Richard, I interrupted. Tell me what it was like to ght in combat?, I asked impatiently. Uncle Melton wanted to tell stories. All I wanted was to get through, go home and watch television. Arrogant in youth, my agenda was more important than what I could learn from him above and beyond what I had to have for a school assignment. Uncle Melton was a fading link to family history, but I was clueless. He passed away a few years later and, as time also passed, I grew to understand what an opportunity Id missed to learn more of my family legacy and the threads that bonded that eras brothers-inarms. Id give much now, to not only hear the rest of that yarn, but to also give my uncle the attention his years and life experiences deserved: to be heard and respected. Id like to hear now about Richard and what a great joke he played that still had my uncle laughing and telling the tale almost 50 years later. Why would we not want advice, stories and life experience from those who have already lived it? Who says we have to make all our own mistakes? Traditions, rituals, and good old stories were once passed from generation to generation. Doesnt seem to be happening much anymore. Our older generation holds great lessons for us: history, humor and homespun wisdom better than we can ever learn online. Its easy to grow impatient with the slow pace of our elders conversation. They hand-wrote letters and worked hours preparing just one meal. We dash off emails while waiting for the microwave to ping. Our older generation is ready to hand down to us the keys to the world keys that can unlock much of the mystery that bedevils our life. Listen to some of our elders. See the emotions they feel as they share memories. Its one of the best ways they can still contribute. Chances are, we all know a perfect candidate for this particular history lesson. If, that is, we can slow our pace long enough to listen. CAROL KENT Editor HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Social Security Of ce is closed Whats our congressman going to do about it?

The bill, which partly was in spired by the case of a Jasonville woman sentenced to 20 years in prison after ring a shot near her estranged husband during an al tercation, passed the chamber 327. The woman, Marissa Alexander, is out on bail awaiting a new trial. The bill, which earlier received backing from the Republican-con trolled House, now goes to the desk of Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Alexander had tried to assert a stand your ground defense, but a judge rejected her claim. She was sentenced under a 1999 law called 10-20-life in which mandatory sentences are imposed for using a gun in certain cases. That law requires that anyone who shows a gun in the commis sion of certain felonies receive an automatic 10 years in prison. If a gun is red, its an automatic 20 years under that law. Shoot and wound someone and the manda tory sentence is 25 years to life. The warning shot bill, however, would allow for instances of threat ened use of force without falling un der the rule of 10-20-life. NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer and supporters said 10-20-life wasnt intended to be used in selfdefense cases. This is an important bill because it stops the abuse of 10-20-life and keeps prosecu tors from using it against people who use lawful self-defense, Hammer said. She added that 10-20-life is not about self-defense. Self-defense is a constitutional right. 10-20-life was passed to stop prosecutors and judges from slap ping gun-wielding criminals on the wrist and giving them reduced sen tences or probation. Opponents of the proposed changes, however, argued that the so-called warning shot legislation would encourage more people to re weapons. Theres two magic words the publics going to hear warning shot, Sen. Chris Smith, R-Fort Lauderdale, said. I just dont think its responsible right now to encourage people to give warning shots in the air, in a crowd or wherever. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Greg Evers, a Republican from Pensacola. Evers opposes the phrase warning shot and em phasized that the bill is all about self-defense. This bill, if you read it, does not say anything about a warning shot, Evers said. What this bill does, it says, if you are threatened you can use equal or threatened use of force to protect yourself. This is about self-defense. This is about the right thing to do. Alexander attempted to use a stand your ground defense which allows the use of lethal force when threatened with death or great bodily harm. The defense failed because she did not actually shoot her husband. An aide to Scott said he will give the bill close scrutiny. Gov. Scott supports the Second Amendment and Floridas selfdefense laws, spokesman John Tupps said. He looks forward to reviewing this legislation in its entirety now that it has been ap proved by both the House and the Senate.

Thats big news for Panhandle anglers, because it means the run of the big mackerel has nally started to move north, after stalling for some time off Fort Myers this year because of a wave of late cold fronts. Water temperatures in the Panhandle still are at about 65 degrees, and thats too cold for any signicant number of kings, but all it will take is a week of warm, sunny weather to make things right. When the water hits 68 degrees, the bait will move, and with it will come the kings to say nothing of the Spanish, the cobia, the bonito and a bit of everything else. Scientists with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Institute have learned that most of the kings that summer in Northwest Florida spend winters off the Florida Keys and in the Atlantic as far north as Palm Beach, but as soon as the waters begin to warm in spring, the sh move back into the Gulf and head north. They usually arrive in strength in the Panhandle shortly after April 15, with May through October offering steady action. When the big schools of cigar minnows and herring arrive, the kings will be with them, anywhere from a half-mile off the beach to the wrecks 15 miles out and farther. A lot of sh also typically run the breaks offshore at 80 and at 160 feet. Kings are members of the tuna family, but are for the most part found on the coastal shelf; they are green water sh rather than the true pelagics of the open sea. Theyre caught with some regularity from Panhandle piers. School kings, aka snakes, are slender speedsters that average 7 to 10 pounds; they make up the bulk of the kingsh schools. But there are also plenty of smokers in the mix, sh of 20 pounds and up, which literally are capable of making a misty smoke y from a reel as they scream line off at 30 miles an hour. Kings reach lengths approaching 6 feet and weights more than 90 pounds in a lifespan maxing out close to 20 years. The current IGFA all-tackle record is 93 pounds, caught in Puerto Rico in 1999. Fish of 50 pounds are caught occasionally in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but most of the line class records come in winter around the Florida Keys. Catching school kings is fairly straightforward; most anglers nd the sh by watching for diving birds or for other boats already on the school and proceed to troll a 5inch Clark or Drone spoon weighted with a trolling lead of a couple ounces around the outer edges of the school, or around articial or natural reefs and current breaks. Pulling the spoon behind a No. 2 or 3 planer also is highly effective, and during the dawn bite when the sh are often on top, they can be caught on unweighted spoons and jigs and even occasionally on a big topwater lure worked very fast. Kings can also be caught on a number of big lures including the Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow Magnum, the Manns Stretch 25 and Stretch 30 and Mirrolure 113MR, which can be trolled at speeds to 9 knots without broaching its a great locator lure. Some also do well with a large chrome Rat-L-Trap, a vibrating slab lure. Another Panhandle favorite for these schoolers is a cigar minnow on a feather-duster rig the tubular body of the cigar minnow trolls true while many at-sided bait species tend to spin. Trolling speed is typically 4 to 6 knots. You can catch a lot of kings by just pulling a rigged minnow at sunrise while everybody else is trying to catch live bait. Frozen cigar minnows are available at all Panhandle bait shops. For the larger kings, live bait is generally best bet; a large blue-runner or thread herring (aka greenback) on a stinger rig is the ticket. Most anglers use No. 6 copper-color wire as leader to prevent cutoffs on the razor-like teeth of the mackerels. One small triple-X strong treble goes through the nostrils, and a second dangles along the sides about 6 inches back. The rig prevents kings chomping off the baitsh tail without getting hooked, as they frequently do otherwise. The baits often can be caught around channel markers on a sabiki rig, a chain of small ies. These channel markers also often hold both kings and Spanish never pass one up if youre hunting sh. The live baits are eased along at walking speed, considerably slower than rigged baits or spoons. Some anglers like to lay down a scent trail by dragging a chum bag chopped baitsh, dogfood and menhaden oil is a popular mix as they troll a circular pattern around a reef or hard bottom area, or simply circle baitsh schools. A favorite trick of tournament anglers is to sh a live bait down the color break line that makes up outside the larger inlets on strong outgoing tides on the outside of this line is clear water, pale green, while on the inside the water is black from the tanninstained bays. Theres usually a lot of grass oating down the line, and lots of crabs and other edibles in the eddies. The anglers slowly work the live baits down the green side of this line. Either way, once the migration arrives, the action is near certain.

By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Khaliel Spearman is aware of history in the Halifax All-Star Classic. Now hes aware of his place in it. The Rutherford senior set the overall scoring record with 37 points in leading the East to a 120-115 win over the West at the Billy Harrison Field House on Saturday. His achievement was nearly matched by the Wests Austin Carnley, who broke a long-standing team record with 30 points. The outcome also was the highest-scoring game in the 10-year history of the event. Spearman battled East teammate Alex Brown for scoring honors early in the second half and nished the nal 20 minutes with 28 points. He and Brown were instrumental in crafting a 12-2 run in 70 seconds that turned a vepoint lead into a 99-84 East cushion with 8:42 to play. Spearman had 31 points, one more than previous East scoring record-holder Jon Wade, with a little more than 2 minutes to go. East coaches Travis Blanton and Thomas Register called timeout in the nal minutes and informed Spearman that he was nearing Taliah Moores overall mark of 33 set last year. Spearman tied Moore with a jumper and surpassed her with four free throws, the nal two capping the score. Spearman spoke fondly of Wade, who also played at Rutherford, during Media Day on Friday. Spearman joked Well, hes a good Jon Wade, but hes no Khaliel Spearman. No, indeed, as Spearman became the fourth Ram to earn MVP honors since the award was instituted in 2007. With all of these great teammates I have, I didnt expect this, Spearman said. Its a great accomplishment and it feels good to continue the tradition of Rudd (Rutherford) winning that MVP. The East also extended its winning streak to four games and secured the seventh win in the series. The triumph looked to be in doubt for 30 minutes, as Carnley of Paxton hit four of his nine 3-pointers in the rst half and the West trailed by only two points, 53-51. Carnley, who was the West MVP, and Ronnie Baylark, who scored 25 points, helped the West build a 65-55 lead three minutes into the second half. Spearmans 3-pointer 6 minutes later capped an East rally for an 82-80 lead. The East didnt trail again. We gave them a run for their money, said Carnley, who broke Jeremy Paynes West record of 27 points set in the inaugural year of 2005. I just wanted to do my best to help my team, but Im not gonna lie, it feels good to set the scoring record. Spearman agreed that the individual accolade was satisfying and the new basketball he received as MVP also would be a nice addition to his pickup games. But he said there was more to the honor and more to the victory. This is to show people that we put in the work and work hard at Rutherford, Spearman said. And we (the East) didnt want this (streak) to end. Chai Baker scored 15 points and Roderick Copeland 13 for the East, which connected on 19 3-pointers. Denzel Ware added 20 points, Lane Strickland scored 12 and Wyatt Kemper 11 for the West, which held seven rst-half leads.

NEWS HERALD-AREA TEAMS SWEEP HALIFAX ALL-STAR CLASSIC BEASTS OF THE EAST By BRANDON WALKER Halifax Media Services PANAMA CITY In the fall, Malone High School senior Curteeona Brelove will take her talents to Virginia Commonwealth University. On Saturday, however, she put on one last show for local fans at the 10th Halifax All-Star Classic at Gulf Coast State College. Brelove, a 6-foot-3 forward, scored a team-high 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to help the East team earn an 81-73 win over the West in the game that pits seniors from The News Heralds eightcounty area against representatives from Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties. I really like this team a lot, said Brelove, who scored 14 of her 24 points in the rst half. We had good chemistry, played well together. It means a lot to play well today. The victory for the East is the third in 10 years, and rst since 2012. For Chipley coach Kimberly Tuel, the win was satisfying. We had a lot of talent, said Tuel, who led her team to the Class 1A state championship game this season. Any time you get this much talent together, its fun to coach. Choctawhatchee guard Brittany Washington, the Wests Most Valuable Player, led all scorers with 25 points. For the East, 11 players reached the scoring column, led by Breloves 24 and 15 from Sneads guard Tasherica McMillon. The East also enjoyed a 44-29 edge on the glass, an advantage it used to outscore the West 13-5 over the games nal three minutes. I thought their size was a big difference, said Paxton coach Steve Williams, who led his Lady Cats to the 1A state championship over Chipley. Our girls played hard and played together. I really enjoy coming over here to this game and seeing players get to play together that have been opponents all year. Its a great game. The East opened the game on a 9-0 scoring run and the West never fully recovered. The East led throughout, and the closest the West got was three points when Washington connected on a 3-pointer with three minutes left to cut the advantage to 68-65. Brelove and company were too much down the stretch on the way to the eightpoint win. I just wanted to come out and play my game, Brelove said. After that, I just let the game take care of itself.

WASHINGTON (AP) With Mideast peace talks on the verge of collapse, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry declared Friday that its reality check time on whether an agreement can be reached anytime soon after decades of bitterness between Israeli and Pales tinian leaders. The U.S. will re-evaluate its role as media tor, he said. It was Kerrys most pessi mistic take yet on the peace effort after almost nine months of frustrating talks with little progress to show. Kerry made clear that his push for peace is not yet over, and he said both sides claim to want to continue negotiating. But he also said that continuing setbacks in the process culminat ing this week with tit-for-tat moves by Israeli and Pal estinian ofcials that have upended good-faith bargain ing could force the U.S. to shift focus to other crises where Washington might have more success. We have an enormous amount on the plate, Kerry told reporters during a dip lomatic visit to Rabat, Mo rocco, the end of a marathon trip that saw him jumping back and forth between Is rael, Ramallah and Europe. He noted that the U.S. also is dealing with challenges in Ukraine, Iran and Syria, and he said, There are limits to the amount of time and effort the United States can spend if the parties themselves are unwilling to take construc tive steps in order to be able to move forward. The nine months of talks are scheduled to end April 29, and Kerry has been press ing to have them continue through much of the rest of the year. But were not go ing to sit here indenitely, he said. So its reality check time, and we intend to evalu ate precisely what the next steps will be. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he would anticipate that a conversa tion with the president is in the near future. Kerry has spent major portions of his 14 months as secretary of state pursuing an Israeli-Palestinian agree ment despite the seemingly long odds. A collapse of the talks could be a diplomatic embarrassment for him and the administration and a danger in the region as well. Failed efforts in the past have led to major bouts of violence. On Friday, Pales tinians red rockets at Is rael, which responded with warplanes attacking military targets in the Gaza Strip. Uzi Rabi, director of Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University, said its doubtful the two sides will broker a nal peace agree ment, given years of bitter ness and sharp differences over borders, claims to Jeru salem and recognition of Is rael as a Jewish state. But he said the talks should contin ue if only to ward off a new Palestinian uprising against Israelis that would surely lead to a surge in violence. I think the Americans know that the talks ulti mately will fail, Rabi said. So why are they going on? Because its much better to talk than something which is much more problematic, like intifada. Intifada is the Ara bic term for past Palestinian uprisings against Israel. The last one began in 2000, and more than 3,000 Palestinians and 1,000 Israelis were killed in several years of ghting. In the West Bank city of Ramallah, chief Palestin ian negotiator Saeb Erekat expressed hope Friday the talks would continue. But, he said, Palestinian leaders do not feel bound to follow Kerrys ground rules for ne gotiating if Israel fails to live up to its own commitments. We dont have anything to lose, Erekat said, after the moves and countermoves that Israeli and Palestinian ofcials have undertaken over the past week that have left the negotiations on life support. Already lacking signs of progress, the peace process was put into serious jeopar dy last weekend when Israel refused to release a group of Palestinian prisoners it had said last summer it would free as part of the agreement to resume talks that had been stalled since 2011. Kerrys comments on Fri day signaled that he and his team would be taking a step back from the peace process to test Israeli and Palestin ian intentions. Local What s that g r een bo x?

Bill would close medical clinic loophole TALLAHASSEE (AP) There is one simple way for a Florida medical clinic to avoid being licensed and undergoing an annual inspection: Dont accept insurance. A bill moving through the Legislature would close that loophole for so-called cash-only clinics, which can escape gov ernment oversight because the statutory denition of a clinic is interpreted as an op eration that takes third-party insurance. The bill (SB 746) sponsored by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, would require that all medical clin ics be subject to licensure, renewal and inspection, whether they accept in surance or not. Many of the cash-only clinics are run by business people with no connection to the medical eld, but must hire a licensed doctor to oversee the operation and sign prescriptions. Because the clinics arent licensed, the state doesnt know how many exist. There is no regulation of clinics, it truly is the Wild West out there, said Ken neth Woliner, a Boca Raton physician who thinks the clinics should be regulated. He said nding clinics that run without over sight is simple: The places open, treat pa tients and then quickly move on. The doc tors who are hired to run the clinics are often older doctors and they just need money and dont care, he said. Sobels bill is moving slowly, if at all. She looks at the disinterest in the statehouse as a problem of regionalism. Most of the unlicensed clinics are in her district and other parts of South Florida, so getting legislators from other parts of the state interested is difcult. This is often how the pill mills oper ate, Sobel said, referring to clinics and pharmacies that illicitly dispense pre scription narcotics like painkillers. But Im not sure anyone up here knows that. They just dont have the problem to the extent we do. Kerrys patience wearing thin as Mideast peace talks falter

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Extra Special to the Times-Advertiser Many of us can remember being cared for by our parents when we were injured as children. Whether cutting our leg while climbing a tree or swallowing one too many pieces of candy, our parents always came to the rescue with soothing words and a rst aid kit in hand. Because of our pets are beloved members of the family, shouldnt we do the same for them? Here are some tips and tricks to help ease your pets pain in case of emergency. Just like for people, there are some basic rst aid supplies for your pet to always have readily available in your home. A good idea is to have a pet rst aid kit so that you can concentrate on what you can do for your pet constructively rather than looking all over the place for something that might work but is less than ideal, said Dr. James Barr, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. However, the most important thing is to have the phone number of your local veterinarian in case of emergency, including what to do after hours. Some items to include in your rst aid kit could be an assortment of bandages, an instant cold pack, gauze and roll pads, medical gloves, triple antibiotic ointment, alcohol and antiseptic wipes, a slip-style leash, lubricating jelly, tongue depressors and tweezers/forceps. Knowing how to perform basic CPR on your pet and stop external bleeding by applying a pressure wrap are also important skills you should acquire. Two common examples of emergencies in which basic rst aid knowledge can be life-saving for your pet include exposure to toxins and excessive external bleeding. If your pet is exposed to a toxin, get the name of the toxin and try to gure out how much they have ingested, and then call your vet to give you further instructions, Barr said. If your pet is experiencing severe blood loss resulting from external bleeding, wrap the wound with a towel or bandage to help stop the bleeding, and apply pressure to help slow the loss of blood. Just remember that if being injured is traumatizing for us, imagine how it must be for our pets. In the event of an emergency, it is important to do everything you can to minimize their anxiety. This will not only help prevent further injury for them, but also to you and your family. One must be very careful with injured pets because they are unable to communicate with us and us with them, so they are often afraid, Barr said. That fear is then translated into aggression, and pets can injure even the best meaning bystander because they are in pain. Much like you would to a distraught person, it is best to talk gently to them using comforting words. Though rst aid is certainly not a substitute for proper veterinary care, it might be extremely helpful in preventing further injury and easing your pets pain. Keeping these tips in mind can save you a lot of troubles in the long run and even ultimately help to save your pets life.
