She said the term nuisance was too broadly used in the animal control ordinance. Ive lived there for over 25 years and never had a complaint about my dogs, now this new neighbor moves in and its just letter after letter complaining about my dogs, said Land. Ive got letters from my other neighbors stating that my dogs arent a problem. Why can one person cause me so much problems? Police Chief Chris Wells explained that one letter of citation had been issued for a court date and that Land had been let go with a warning. Land said she had bought shock collars a little over a week ago and that she no longer lets her dogs stay out at night.

A local resident came before the council to remind them of all the volunteer service that Owens has provided for the town over the past several decades and recommended that the town declare a day in honor of Owens and after much discussion the Council came up with the idea of honoring her at the next town council meeting, inviting the community to come out in support of Owens. Town Attorney Lyndia Spears updated the council on an ongoing issue with a local resident and the Florida Department of Transportation. Spears explained that during a paving project down south County Road 181 that the FDOT paved a strip of the towns street, Orlando Street, without the towns permission.

Krystal Prevatt, a reading teacher at PHS, was placed on leave last week after a parent alleged she mocked and videoed her son, a student in Prevatts remedial reading class. Attempts to reach Prevatt for comment were unsuccessful, but Holmes County Superintendent of Schools Eddie Dixon con rmed the teacher has been placed on leave per school system policy. My son said he fell asleep in the classroom and awoke to (Prevatts) cell phone in his face, and she was counting the students down to yell at him to wake up, alleged the childs mother, who wont be named in order to protect the childs identity.

After a history of battling with skin care and trying to gure out ways to improve my skins condition, I formed a company in 2012 called White Oak Organics, said Carreiro. Its my second time around after a successful 27-year career in the military and during my Air Force tenure, I had been issued every cream and steroid possible to clear uppsoriasis and eczema. Nothing worked and the more I read, the more intrigued I was over the health of my skin. During the course of his studies in skin care he said he came across a chimical called sodium lauryl sulfate that seemed to appear in the Teacher placed on leave See TEACHER A2 White Oak Organics is changing the world with soap ONE BAR AT A TIME Photo by CECILIA SPEARS | The Times-Advertiser Sample of White Oak Organics home made soap.

County Engineer Amir Zafar came before the Council to inform them that their time for this phase of road repairs were coming to an end and that the top ve roads for repair, Sand Path Road, Minnesota Avenue east of Oklahoma Avenue, Banll Avenue at McGee Street, Veneer Circle and North Varner Street and Nebraska Av enue intersection would be completed by April 28 and if there was any more time or money left they would continue working on streets. Raymon Thomas, re cently hired as the Execu tive Director of the Hol mes County Development Commission, came before the Council to inform them that the Florida Depart ment of Transportation is considering an Interstate 10 connector between I-10 and Alabama. This is something that will forever change Boni fay and you will be remem bered for what you do, said Thomas. There are three rms conducting the study with four to seven years to build out and theyve got four possible routes: a four-lane through Bonifay, a two lane two blocks over, a bypass around through County Road 173 South or a bypass around through Homestead Road. People arent going to like the idea at rst and then theyll blame you for letting it by pass them. Thomas suggested cre ating a steering commit tee for what needs to be considered with the I-10 connector. Make an appointment as soon as possible, said Thomas. You dont want them to tell you theres a meeting and this is where the roads going to be with out your input. A representative from the Grifth Subdivision was present to say they met all of the citys require ments and was even going to repair the road at no cost to the city and after much discussion there was talk about possible sewer hook up with the city to which the discussion was tabled until further research. Council approved of Wells request to purchase $1,000 in ashlights with a reimbursement grant pro vided by the state.PHOTO BY CE C ILIA S P EAR S Resident Connie Land came before the Bonifay City Council during their April 14 meeting to seek reprieve from her neighbor, Misty Peak, whom she accused of too many complaints against her dogs. DOGS from page A1 RESIDENT from page A1 the Council were the paving was addressed and approved, which is where the complica tions are since the town didnt address the issue because the Council didnt know the paving until after the fact. Its a nice street but we dont want to be pulled into any litigations for something DOT did without the authority of the city, said Spears. Mayor Ron Farrington informed the Council that Jackie Grant had moved his hardware store to the strip of road where the towns wa ter tower is located and for 911 addressing purposes the road needed a name so at the last minute he came up with Water Tower Lane. This way it doesnt show any bias about whos living around it, said Farrington. It just had the water tower on it and I thought it was tting. The towns project of turn ing recycled vehicle tires into playground equipment is progressing steadily, with the tires soon to be painted and assembled at the towns park in the next few weeks. The next meeting of the Ponce de Leon Town Coun cil and appreciation day for Edith Owens is set for 6 p.m. on May 1. an increase in trafc on State Roads 77 and 79. He said there has been meetings to encourage both Florida and Alabama to see the need for a connector further north of Interstate 10. All major roads are go ing four-lane and Alabama is looking for an I-10 connector to help accommodate to the increase of moving people and goods, said Martin. The largest copper ship ments are from Panama City, theres an airport in Panama City; we want to present our area and create jobs. Martin said that last year they nalized a local agree ment with Alabama to move forward with the study for a connector with I-10. I cant give a whole lot of details at the moment but we are looking at State Road 79 and alternate routes, said Martin. Were looking at a seven-year study to look at ev ery possible route, new align ments, environmental impact; thats just how long it takes to look at every possibility. After a public hearing the Board approved of an ordi nance to the comprehensive plan for a portion of land to be changed from Commercial to Agricultural, with the land use change being approved earlier and now in need of an ordinance, with a vote of 3 to 2 with Commissioners Bill Par ish and David Whitaker voting no. Board approved of 911 Co ordinator Clifton McGowan to use comp time in the extra time needed to be trained in his new position. Lane Wright with AT&T came before the Board with a proposal to build a new tower on the present easement on the Countys land to give to the county for rent of space in exchange of giving it to the county or to build the tower elsewhere with a private owner. The Board agreed to have a special meeting just for dis cussing the proposal. Board approved to spend $1,260 for full termite treat ment for a termite issue at the courthouse with payments at $245 a year to retreat. Dogwood Lakes Golf Club owner Connie Mason came be fore the Board to propose sell ing the golf course to the coun ty, saying they were selling for personal reasons, however theyve only been approached by out of state franchises and would much rather have the course remain local. Board agreed to table it for further consideration. Willing and able may be two different things but it is denitely something to con sider, said Parish. Board approved of Whitak ers idea to combine the Fore man and Bridge Crew Su pervisor into a Public Works Director and advertise for that position with a vote of 3 to 2 with Monty Merchant and Kenneth Williams voting no. I calculated both those positions combined totaled $84,084, with just one Public Works Director we can be sav ing the county anywhere from $12,000 to almost $24,000 a year, said Whitaker. ROAD from page A1 CHIPLEY Emerald Coast Hospice hosted its annual Emerald Coast Hospice memorial service Saturday, April 12, at Shiloh Baptist Church. The memorial service, which honored patients who passed away in the last year, was an opportunity for families to pay tribute to loved ones and reunite with hospice staff. Light refresh ments were served, and patients and staff alike took the opportunity to speak about loved ones who had passed away and the im pact patients and staff had on both the families and each other. The Chipley Emerald Coast Hospice of ce serves patients in Hol mes, Washington, Jackson and Calhoun counties. Shirley Thompson of Chipley took a moment to pay tribute to her father, Wilton Haddock, who passed away in January and to thank hospice staff for their care. CAROL KENT The News Emerald Coast Hospice pays tribute then told him in front of the class she was going to post the video on Facebook and YouTube. The parent claims the in cident is just the latest in a long line of events in which her son was singled out. She has made homosex ual innuendos to him in front of the class as well, said the parent. He asked to go to the restroom after another male student had also gone, and she asked if he was the other stu dents boyfriend, telling him he couldnt hold his hand in the bathroom. I want to know why my son, who has a docu mented learning disability, is being singled out. Further more, videoing him without my or his consent is a violation of his civil rights. Superintendent Dixon said he cant comment on the investigation but stressed placing Prevatt on Adminis trative Leave was merely a procedural act and doesnt constitute the school sys tems belief the allegations are true. At this time, it is not ethical to comment on an on going investigation concerning one of our em ployees, said Dixon. I can say that we investigate every complaint, however, and that (placing Prevatt on leave) is just standard school policy. Every decision made by the Holmes County School Board focuses on the singular goal of ensuring the best possible learning environment for all students.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A3 Wednesday, April 16, 2014 list of ingredients for most daily body products and hair care. I found that many of the commercial producers use this chemical as a lather ing, foaming agent and this tricky chemical gives one the optical illusion that the product works wonders on your skin and hair because of its luxurious lather, how ever, its really stripping the skin of all natural moisture, he said. Sodium lauryl sulfate is actually used as a degreaser, which shows you how strong and powerful this chemi cal can be. Many are fooled, as they think it leaves their skin squeaky clean but most of the natural glycerin is stripped from commercially produced soap and, thus the moisturizing is removed as well. He explained that for many people, dry skin can be a common problem and the soaps commonly used by the average consumer may very well be the quiet culprit. After switching to natural and organic soap, he said his skin no longer requires a bevy of prescription oint ments and fancy creams. I have switched all of my skin care to organic and natural items wherever pos sible and for me, its been a rewarding change with gratifying results, said Carreiro. The goal with White Oak Organics is to rally people around a healthy change in how they take care of their skin. He said to imagine your skin and hair as a sponge and that everything you put on your skin and scalp is absorbed right into your body. In the long run, using an inexpensive set of chemicals and fillers that hurt your skin rather than help it can become a long-term prob lem, he said. Some people might ask why anyone would pay ex tra money for natural or or ganic soap and the answer is simple: add up the cost of mass-produced soap and dry skin lotion and youll be sur prised, he said. Switching to natural or handmade soap may not cure everyones skin problems but it will certainly improve the skins quality and texture over time. Weve had children use our prod ucts with eczema and their parents talk accolades; the improvement is notable. After time he said he came up with a winning recipe for solid lotion body bars, starting specically for one woman he met at a festival. This was one of the worst cases of psoriasis I had ever seen and embarrassed by her skin, she waited until everyone at the booth had walked away, came over and asked if there was anything we could do to help her, said Carreiro. At the time, I was producing only soap but I took her address, headed home and hand-crafted a new bar. The challenge put on the table was to help this woman and others with the same skin condition. The innovation he found was that most of the creams he used for his psoriasis con tained citric acid in some form and he explained that most of the lotion bars he and his family make contain natu ral and organic shea, mango and horsetail butters with vi tamin E and carrieroil. I could hardly wait to mail them to her, he said. It may not have cured the psoriasis, but the result was gratifying. The elasticity of her skin marked a big im provement and with a few applications, our lotion bar slowed down the stretching and cracking of her skin. She was happy to report that she nally had some relief. That was just one of the many usages he found for his soaps. He added that many costumers use their soaps as aromatherapy, placing the bars under the sheets at the foot of the bed for restless leg syndrome. Although I cant make this claim to fame, if it works, why not lay back and enjoy the moment, said Carreiro. Feedback keeps pouring in on our Florida Sunrise Soap and the ght against acne. We can tout our Orange es sential oil as the winning in gredient and were happy to report it never strips natural moisture from the skin. He said his main love with his line of products is that he loves to help people. Like shoemakers chil dren, we create natural and organic solutions that make people happy with their skin, said Carreiro. Mak ing soap lets me tune into a variety of oils and I get to work wonders with my hands every day. Were pas sionate about our products. Handmade soap has been around for many years and many people have shared family stories and recipes with us and in turn, we get to share back. Carreiro has taken his passion on the road, visit ing fairs and festivals as a vendor, with Bonifays Down Home Street Festival being his latest stop. We just finished the Bonifay Down Home Street Festival and met so many wonderful people, he said. Now thats what I call the true labor of love, seeing new faces and some of our regu lars join back at the booth for a bar of soap and not just any soap, that of White Oak Organics.

Until her high schools Drivers Education class is ready for enrollment, however, a friend of mine has volunteered to help nurture my daughters driving skills in lieu of my instruction. The offer comes due to Taylors sensitive ears. And by that, I mean I tend to ask why shes trying to kill me at full volume when I attempt to teach. How did it go? Ill ask my teen after each road session. The answer is always the same: a short, noncommittal, Fine. Fine? Now, I know Taylor is generally a very together young lady, but a mother needs more details about her childs ability to handle a 2,500-pound piece of machinery than ne. We moms need to hear something more along the lines of: Today I learned how to accurately predict what time distracted or intoxicated drivers will be on any given road so I can take alternate routes to avoid them. A response like that would be much more reassuring than Fine. It would also be reassuring if the state of Florida were to be a little more choosy about who can legally sit in the passenger seat while my 16-year old learns to drive. At present, any licensed driver over 21 is just ne and dandy. Technically, Bernie Madoff could sit at her side and give advice (on driving, not investing) if he wasnt currently otherwise engaged in federal prison. Even more frightening is the knowledge shes received past instruction from me, Queen of the California Stop. Trust when I say of all the things I should be passing down to the next generation, my driving habits are not among them. Id like to see Florida law amended to say that Taylor may only drive if accompanied by at least two paramedics (in case one is harmed in a crash along the way), her youth pastor and a state patrolman. In all seriousness, I know this milestone is one of many to come marking my teens journey into adulthood and teaching me to let go. Too bad we as parents dont have someone giving us instructions on how to take that journey safely, keeping it on the center line between holding on too loosely or too tight. I thought about that as I tossed Taylor the keys for a quick trip to the store last week. After ddling with the radio for a moment, I realized we werent moving. The questioning glance I shot her was met with a look of her own. Seat belt, Mom, she reminded me with a smile. I smiled back as I clicked the buckle, thinking the journey ahead may not be as scary as I rst thought. CAROL KENT Editor HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

Call 638-0212. New laws to protect children G ov. Rick Scott signed four bills last week that lengthen sentences for Floridas most violent sexualcrime convicts, strengthen monitoring of those who complete their sentences, and allow the state to commit those who fail a psychiatric review and are found to still be dangerous to a highsecurity treatment center. In particular, the laws double the mandatory-minimum sentence to 50 years for people who rape children younger than 12, developmentally disabled people or senior citizens. Two of the laws, SB 522 and SB 524, take effect July 1. The other two, SB 526 and SB 528, take effect Oct. 1. The new laws should better protect children and others unable to defend themselves from sexual attacks. One thing Scott, the legislators who helped craft and push the laws and those who will rely on them should concern themselves with immediately is the workability of the monitoring requirements. They are so convoluted that compliance might not be possible. While tough monitoring requirements are certainly needed, authorities must be able to accomplish them. Otherwise, a court challenge could result in them being ruled invalid, and that would nullify their intent. Then people who have been released from prison after completing their sentences might be freed from monitoring a wholly unacceptable result. As such, the Legislature, Governors Of ce or Attorney Generals Of ce should review the new laws thoroughly, particularly SB 528, to make sure the requirements meet all laws that might apply, and that they comply with the U.S. and state constitutions. Both houses of the Legislature, and both political parties, moved at top speed to approve this package of anti-predator bills. Two high-pressure matters propelled them: First, the June 21 killing of an 8-year-old Jacksonville girl. Cherish Perrywinkle was abducted from a Wal-Mart in Jacksonville, then raped and strangled, The Associated Press reported. The man charged with murder in Cherishs killing, Donald Smith, is a registered sex offender, of cials say. Second, a series of articles by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale. The articles examined the cases of offenders reviewed for commitment but who were set free. The articles reported that 594 sex offenders committed new crimes, in some cases on their days of release. Fourteen killings were among the crimes. Those released also molested 460 children and raped 121 women, the articles reported. As Scott signed the bills into law on Tuesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Shalimar, who worked on them, said, Florida will not be a catchand-release state as it relates to violent sexual predators. Said Scott: As a father of two girls and the grandfather of three little boys, I think about how the legislation Im signing today will affect Floridas families. It will make Florida safer. Providing for the populaces health, safety and welfare is the principle mission of state government. In no matter is this priority more clear than sexual offenses against defenseless victims. This editorial originally ran in the April 9, 2014, edition of the Panama City News Herald. With the Doctors Memorial Foundation Golf Tournament scheduled for Friday, I was busy nalizing my sponsorship and door prize sales, so I had to push my deadline to get something for the Happy Corner. The tournament was a huge success, though, and it looks like we exceeded last years total income. The ball drop won by Mike Alvis brought a lot of interest. Ten teams participated and competed for rst, second and third place as well as for a good selection of door prizes donated by our Bonifay businesses. The board composed of Ricky Calahan, Roger Brooks, Loriene Kosier, Diane Little and I are grateful to hospital employees Jennifer Cloud and Allison Blevins for stepping into the position vacated by Brenda Blitch to help us through the process. We are also grateful to our sponsors for their faithfulness year after year in making it possible to purchase helpful items and programs for our local hospital, things not in their budget. In addition to the golf tournament and Estos Two Toe Tom Festival, another interesting event was Bethlehem High Schools Heritage Festival on Saturday. Even though we have a guest artist from Asheville, N.C., on a working visit here, I found time to go to Bethlehem. When we started the blueberry business in 1984 and 85, Jacks niece Nancy Rohan was in the sign painting business after graduating with a degree in art from the University of Florida, so she created our rst and most beautiful sign. Now she is here refurbishing it and repainting it. But she and Jack did excuse me long enough for me to check Bethlehems celebration of our heritage. They started the day with a 5K run in support of Alice Hall, a Bethlehem teacher who is battling cancer. There were food booths and a cake and basket auction plus childrens activities. Of particular interest was the corn sheller, where kids were allowed to shell an ear of corn the way we did when I was growing up. We shelled it for the chickens, the mule and for taking to the grist mill where the familys corn meal supply was ground. As one by-stander said, You dont quit till you get that box full. Thats the way it was in his and my day. They also had a petting zoo where several breeds of chickens, a couple of pigs, rabbits, etc. were entertaining the younger set. A corn box similar to a sand box with hidden treasurers was also available for the small children. Lionel and Sheilia Young from Northwest Florida Living History organization were there with their circa Revolutionary War exhibit. They do living history presentations throughout North Florida, South Alabama and Georgia. Lionel is a member of the Living History Association and the Panhandle Historical Preservation Alliance. They are able to present several dramatizations of the Colonial Period, the American Revolution, War of 1812 and the Civil War Period. They were promoting Mariannas 159th anniversary of The battle of Marianna, to be Sept. 26-27 of this year. Charles Simon, county extension agent from Covington County, Ala., was there from Andalusia with his collection of memorabilia from the turpentining or naval stores industry. He also showed pictures of cracker or piney woods cattle, which he is participating in preserving as a breed. A picture of a historical mural depicting the turpentine and cattle industry in that county was on display and will soon be celebrated upon its completion in Andalusia. Homerfell Iron Works with Jared Chatwood from Vernon was on hand to demonstrate his iron working skill. A civil war of cers quarters was set up complete with a well furnished bed room and kitchen of the era where the of cer in authentic dress greeted visitors while his wife wove a rag rug on a loom. Musical instruments included banjos made from a cookie tin and a tin gas can along with a hub cap made into a bass ddle were on hand, but no demonstration while I was there. However, the dulcimer group was performing in the cafeteria. My mothers cousin Earl Cooks oldest son Floyd was among that group. Buford Williams was selling and demonstrating his straw brooms. Every household in my childhood needed at least one member to possess that skill as straw brooms were a necessity. My grandmother, Hannah Brock Wells, was the broom maker for our family. There were other exhibits which I failed to visit or get information about, but the Bethlehem Heritage festival was worth visiting. Unfortunately, the Two Toe Tom Festival, Flea Across Florida and other activities took their toll, but I would say The Heritage Festival is worth expanding. Even though the election year is just getting cranked off, I enjoyed greeting a number of candidates getting a jump-start on the campaign trail. Bethlehems second annual Heritage Festival is worth attending HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Of particular interest was the corn sheller, where kids were allowed to shell an ear of corn the way we did when I was growing up. We shelled it for the chickens, the mule and for taking to the grist mill where the familys corn meal supply was ground.

Given the recent event of the death of a teenage girl (in another state), a lot of atten tion has been brought to this important topic, Sheriff Tim Brown said. This issue is a nationwide problem that needs to be addressed locally. The Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce has worked several cases concerning this issue. The Florida Legislature re cently addressed Bullying and Cyberbullying, classifying both as a felony. To help spread the word about anti-bullying, the HCSO challenged each Holmes County school media class and program to produce and submit a video informing the student body how important it is to not bully and showing con sequences for bullying for both the victim and the bully. The videos were then judged and prizes awarded. The winning video is being shown to all schools within the county in an attempt to deter bullying. It is our goal that this proj ect will give a positive effect for all grades to see high school students speak out against bullying, Brown said.S P E C IA L TO T I M E S AD VERTI S ER Poplar Springs High School won First Place and a $500 prize. HCSO promotes anti-bullying efforts Bethlehem High School won third place and a $200 prize. Ponce de Leon High School won second place and a $300 prize.

SPORTS www.bonifaynow.com A Section CAROL KENT | Times-Advertiser Poplar Springs High School Senior Kelli McIntosh has signed a letter of intent to play softball for Enterprise State Community College in Dothan, Ala. McIntosh signed her softball scholarship last week as parents, family members, coaches and friends looked on. Pictured from left are (front row) Kellis father, Matt McIntosh; Kelli McIntosh; Kellis mother, Susan McIntosh (back) and Poplar Springs High School Coaches Josh Smith and Brad Hall. MCINTOSH SIGNS WITH ESCC The miscreants in Storrs, Conn., and Lexington, Ky., and by all means they are not the rst nor the last, who think that the result of an NCAA mens basketball championship game entitled them to gather in the street, start res and cause other public disturbances that lead to nearriot conditions. Im not a parade guy, because they are attended by many of the above, but maybe we need them merely to pause and appreciate for more than a breath just what has been accomplished before the speculators take over and were on to the next endeavor at warp speed. Professional athletes who celebrate the ordinary. Were heading in the direction where someone on the mound is going to react to a rst-pitch strike by stopping and pointing to the heavens. And these are the athletes who set the standard for on eld conduct that is emulated by collegians and highschoolers all the way down to 10-year-olds just learning how to enjoy the rapture of competition. Pro athletes who loudly proclaim that they love their sport so much that theyd play the game for free. OK. Go ahead and donate your salary. And is it the sport you love or the advanced level at which youve grown accustomed to playing it? Any broadcaster or writer who refers to a do-or-die situation. Try explaining that to the kids served by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Sports clichs. Anytime youre reading a story and encounter monkey on their back or backs against the wall do yourself a big favor and move on to the next headline. The guy cant write. The same with any announcer who uses the term went to the well once too often. My mother is 90 years old, and if she ever went to the well shes the only person I know who ever did. Turn off the sound on this guy. Youre better off listening to the broadcast of a World Cup game in Spanish. Anyone watching a game in a saloon or newsroom who turns to the person next to them and says, I could have told you that was going to happen. Oh really. Nine times out of 10 they probably couldnt even explain why or how it happened. Overzealous parents who are convinced their child is the next coming of Joe Montana or Mia Hamm. The blanket statement that sports builds character. Maybe so. But then how do we explain the extensive arrest records of current NFL players, and front of ce personnel for that matter? What passes for adult sports discussion during the morning and afternoon on ESPN. Get rid of it and replace it with a continuing loop of highlights and constant streamer of scores and game schedules. Interrupt for breaking news if Derek Jeter falls off a balcony during Spring Break, but not for the next gay athlete who comes out of the closet, minor-leaguers weve never heard of who get busted for use of PEDs or a multi-millionaire signing a contract extension. Men who cry at press conferences announcing their retirement. If youre going to boo-hoo, just send out a press release. Crowd isolations of parents. The Manning family is an American heirloom, but I no longer desire a close-up of Archie and the Missus. People who claim that Yogi Berra said things that he never said. More sabermetrics in baseball. Id rather just watch the game than feel like Im sitting in the front row of a Calculus I class. Gawd what a nightmare that was. Golfers who highve. They look silly. Think of something new, guys. Like tapping 5-irons or pretending youre counting $100 bills. Sleeves worn by basketball players. Most of UConns kids shot free throws just ne without them. The tradition of embracing sports is as American as gambling, carping about taxes and xating on the super cial world of Hollywood. But for those who live sports 24/7, chances are you will not be missed.

Submissions can be made by emailing ckent@chipley paper.com. Please include your name and a daytime phone number. Thank you for helping support our local athletes! Special to The Times-Advertiser In cooperation with the Florida Division of Emergency Management, the Florida Association of Counties is offering a new course for elected of cials, staff and others titled Protecting Your Community from Natural Disasters: A Guide to Flood Insurance, Flood Mitigation and Wind Mitigation Programs. The course will be 9-11:45 a.m. Tuesday, April 22, at the Washington County Emergency Operations Center, located at 2300 Pioneer Road in Chipley. Recent changes to the National Flood Insurance Program will have signi cant effects on local governments and property owners across the state. Though the most recent law change is viewed favorably by many stakeholders, it raises numerous questions regarding the role of local governments in identifying ood risks, ensuring ood maps are accurate and how properties at risk of ood can be mitigated. Additionally, given our states vulnerability to high wind events, there remains a strong interest in ensuring communities can implement measures to ensure damages can be reduced or eliminated. To help understand some of the more common issues associated with the NFIP, ood mitigation, as well as wind mitigation strategies, FAC has developed these workshops where attendees will receive information about the following: An overview of the NFIP and the role of the local government of cial. How recent changes to the NFIP will affect ood insurance rates in your community. What steps your community can take to help lower rates ood insurance rates. What grant programs available to your community and residents. How to evaluate and measure a countys risk and vulnerability to high wind events. What types of wind mitigation measures are utilized in other communities What grant programs available to your community and residents You may register for the course at https:// -counties.portal.daxko.com.

Killer takes life sentence in plea deal By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY As he en tered a plea of no contest to killing his wife and father-in-law, Bry an Castleman took a deep breath, rubbed his face with both hands and turned to face his wifes children and sisters. I wish I could say I knew what happened. I wish I could say I under stand, Castleman start ed. I have no idea what happened in my house. I dont remember anything. I wish I could. Im very sorry. The family members of Mary Ann Castleman said nothing during the hear ing. Prosecutor Larry Basford said he had talked with them and the Spring eld Police Department about the deal, and Judge James Fensom sentenced Bryan Castleman to two consecutive life terms for killing his wife and Leroy Minnich, her ailing father, in November 2012 in the Springeld mobile home where all three lived. Mary Ann Castleman and Minnich were discov ered in the home about three days after they were stabbed with a knife and beaten with a hammer. Bryan Castleman took their money and spent it on drugs and video games after the crime. Fensom told Castle man he would go to jail for the rest of his life if his plea was accepted, and he asked Castleman if he had seen the evidence prosecu tors would pres ent at trial and what he thought of it. Castleman said life in prison was better than the alternative prosecutors had in mind. Ive seen what they say theyve got it pretty much seems to leave me two options, and I choose the better of the two, Castleman said. Castleman was sched uled to go to trial later this month on two counts of rst-degree murder and two counts of robbery. He pleaded no contest to two counts of second-degree murder, thereby avoiding the death penalty, which prosecutors would have sought against him if he had been convicted. The robbery charg es were dropped as part of the deal, and Castleman agreed to pay up to $1,000 in restitu tion for Minnichs funeral expenses. BR YAN CASTLEMAN Debarking surgery is quite the controversy in pet news today. Is it inhumane? Do the possible risks outweigh the perceived benets? These are viable questions to ask when considering debarking surgery to control your dogs chronic barking. However, with April being the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, it is also important to recognize the numerous available non-surgical alternatives that are said to be safer and even more effective by veterinarians and trainers alike. As decipherable from the name, debarking surgery is the act of surgically disabling your dog from producing a loud, barking sound. Although the procedure is called debarking, it does not result in the inability for the dog to produce any sound at all, said Dr. Kelley Thieman, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Instead, the dog has a mufed quality to its bark, and in time could even regain the ability to bark. Though the benet of debarking surgery is the mufed-sounding bark, there are still numerous complications that could arise and denitely should not be overlooked. Debarking surgery carries various risks, Thieman said. During the debarking procedure itself, risks could include bleeding, swelling (preventing air ow), infection, and anesthetic complications. Scarring of the larynx can also occur after the surgery, and in some cases might be severe enough to restrict airow. This would require yet another surgical procedure to remove the scar tissue so the dog could breathe, bringing with it more unnecessary risk. Though tiresome when heard for hours on end, barking is an important way for our dogs to communicate with us. Excessive barking can often be Fido alerting us there is a stranger nearby or even he is in pain. Surgically disabling him from barking, though it might provide you with some relief, might not be appropriate when barking can also be controlled with a similarly effective alternative. The best way to prevent unwanted barking, as advised by both veterinarians and professional dog trainers, is proper training. Some other alternatives could include adequate exercise and environmental enrichment. No-bark collars, which discharge citronella spray or even a static shock in response to barking, are also available, Thieman said. However, I think that obedience training combined with exercise and fun dog activities are great options for controlling excessive barking. Most veterinarians agree debarking surgery should be used only as a last result when all other options have failed, and even then some veterinary clinics refuse to perform the surgery. When considering your options, it is important to extensively consider the alternatives to help decide if the risks of putting your dog through unnecessary surgery are really worth the benet.

Special to Extra Its a long way from Chipola College to Carnegie Hall. But former Chipola music student James Matthews is making the trip. Matthews, a piano major at the University of West Florida, recently placed in a piano competition that will allow him to perform at Carnegie Hall. After he earned his Associate in Arts degree from Chipola College, he transferred to the University of West Florida. At the advice of a UWF professor, Heidi Salanki, Matthews submitted a video of himself performing Sergei Prokoevs Piano Sonata No. 7 for the 2014 American Protg International Piano and Strings Competition. Matthews received honorable mention, which came with the prize of performing in the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall on, Sunday, April 20.

At Chipola, Matthews learned under music professor Josh Martin. Evelyn Ward, Chipola Director of Fine and Performing Arts, says, James is a gifted musician. We are so proud that he began his journey at Chipola. Former Chipola student to play Carnegie HallJAMES MATTHEWS Molly Cumbie named 10th Grade Beauty Special to Extra Welcomed by a host of family and friends, Cap tain Mark Collins, of the Washington County Sher iffs Ofce, readily re turned from a near three month training program. Collins was nominated to attend the FBI National Academy (Session 256) in Quan tico, Va., which began in January and ended in March, 2014. Collins said The opportunity to be nomi nated for the academy and to at tend is an honor and privilege. According to their website, the FBIs National Academy is known as one of the premier law enforce ment training programs in the world for leaders in law enforce ment departments and agencies, both in the U.S. and over seas. Established in 1935, the purpose of the acade my is to provide advanced investigative, manage ment, and tness train ing to senior ofcers and proven leaders of law en forcement organizations. In addition, the program offers undergraduate and graduate-level college courses in areas such as law, behavioral and forensic science, anti-terrorism, communication, and leadership development, all of which pro vide unique directed study for the candidate. The mission of the Academy is to support, pro mote, and enhance the personal and professional development of law enforcement leaders by preparing them for complex, dy namic, and contemporary chal lenges through innovative tech niques, facilitating excellence in education and research, and forging partnerships throughout the world. As important as the academic and physical training candidates receive, are the friendship and networking opportunities cre ated by the experience. Acad emy students forge lasting con nections that strengthen local, national and global law enforce ment relationships to combat the ever-growing criminal web of corruption. I met some incred ibly intelligent and experienced individuals during my training, and established what will surely be true friend ships for life, said Collins as he reected on the new friends he made during the stay. The 256th session consisted of a mix of 221 U.S. law enforcement ofcers and ofcers from 24 for eign countries. Because of my attendance at the academy, I now have more than 200 new resourc es in the US and abroad, as well as a vast network of new friends and colleagues with whom I can share information and solve problems as theyre encountered. With such a wealth of shared knowledge and experience, there is no law enforcement issue that cannot be resolved. The National Academy pro vides an experience like no other for academic training, physical conditioning and networking. The goal is to equip law enforce ment leaders to serve their de partments and communities to their fullest ability; however, the opportunity would be lost without the support of local administra tion. I would like to thank Sheriff Haddock for the opportunity to at tend, the members of my division for continuing their outstanding work in my absence, and my fam ily for their unwavering support. commented Collins. He further stated, This experience has given me a lot of encouragement as a leader. It was an incredible experience and I am grateful to have been allowed to attend. I look forward to serving the peo ple of Washington County in the years to come and now feel I can do so with greater condence. Joining former Sheriff Fred Peel, Collins is only the second FBI National Academy graduate for Washington County and the Sheriffs Ofce.

Pastor Kent Lampp and congregation invite everyone to this special presentation. Bethel Baptist Church is at 1349 Highway 173, Graceville, in the Poplar Springs School community. It is in vogue these days to regard the old hymns of the church as outdated and irrelevant. After all, many of the selections in the hymnbook were written hundreds of years ago. How possible is it for these antiquated songs to be germane to todays upbeat, sophisticated society? Admittedly, there are possible grounds for objecting to the proli c use of hymns in church services. Many hymns employ phrases and terms no longer understood by this generation of Christians. The language of most hymns is biblical. It is an honored tradition of the Church that Christian praise and worship be framed in the language of the Holy Scriptures. However, even this is a problem because of the increasing degree of biblical illiteracy among those who attend church services. Also, some hymns may refer to spiritual experiences far removed from the average Christian. Consider, for example, words like: Is your all on the altar of sacri ce laid? Your heart, does the Spirit control? You can only be blest and have peace and sweet rest, As you yield Him your body and soul. Or look at the commitment to Christ called for in the following: All To Jesus I surrender; All to Him I freely give. I will ever love and trust Him, In His Presence daily live. Unfortunately, we live in a culture where increasingly the only acceptable type of commitment is where I receive the obvious bene t and where there is an out for me if it becomes inconvenient. Hymns such as Take My Life, and Let It Be, Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken, Come, All Christians, Be Committed, and Yielded to God, do not re ect current concerns among many churchgoing people. Furthermore, some of the grand, old hymns re ect a mystical tendency that is unacceptable in our materialistic, pragmatic society. Such daring expressions from a God-intoxicated soul may even shock some people. Still, it is their other worldly character that gives some hymns their ultimate value. Dr. A. W. Tozer once commented: A great hymn embodies the purest concentrated thoughts of some lofty saint who may have long ago gone from the earth and left little or nothing behind him except that hymn. To read or sing a true hymn is to join in the act of worship with a great and gifted soul in his moments of intimate devotion. It is to hear a lover of Christ explaining to his Savior why he loves Him; it is to listen in without embarrassment on the softest whisperings of undying love between the bride and the heavenly Bridegroom. To scorn hymnody is to disregard and despise an important aspect of our spiritual heritage. Hymns always have played an important part in the life and health of the Christian Church. Many of the most-loved hymns were born in the heat of revival, when a fresh moving of the Holy Spirit was on the Church. F.W. Boreham, in one of his essays, points out that Every religious quickening in the history of the ages has immortalized itself in song. Boreham illustrates his point by writing, The spirit of the Hebrew devotion lingers in the Book of Psalms; the faith of the early Christians lives in the Te Deum; the choicest life of the medieval monasteries is bequeathed to us in the hymns of men like Bernard of Clairvaux; the age of the Puritans is revived in the stately melody of Milton. And, in the same way, the movement that brought new life to the world in the eighteenth century stands crystallized in the throbbing verse of Charles Wesley. This is not a time to throw out the old but rather to acclimate youth and new Christians to the rare ed spiritual altitude our forefathers enjoyed and embraced. It is the responsibility of the pastoral team to teach people to understand as well as to sing the grand hymns of the faith, the songs of Zion. Hymns used in congregational worship can help prepare us emotionally and mentally for the ministry of the Holy Spirit in us and through us. They should be sung thoughtfully, reminding us of our respect due to Almighty God and expressing that to Him. The assembled Church is never more glorious then when it is exalting the Risen Savior in terms worthy of His majestic nature and character. Our hymns must burst forth in opulent splendor once more on congregations intent on genuinely worshiping Deity. Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Page 4 DR. JAMES L.

Lottie was a lifelong resident of Marianna, graduating from Marianna High School in 1938, after which she attended Florida State College for Women (now FSU). She then married the love of her life, John Burton Fite, a Tennessean known to all as JB, who predeceased her after more than 50 years of marriage. As a wife, daughter, mother, sister, grandmother and caregiver. Lottie loved First Presbyterian Church, and at her death, she was the longest serving member of that congregation, having joined the church in 1930 at the age of 10. She served her church in numerous capacities, including president of the Women of the Church, Circle Chairman and chairman of several committees of the Presbyterian Womens Council. Lottie was wonderful about visiting ill and elderly members in the hospital, nursing home or in their homes. She lived across the street from the then-Marianna Convalescent Center and for many years was known to all there from her almost-daily rounds of the halls. Lottie was also a life member of the Marianna Womans Club. Lottie was very proud of her family history.

Ive got letters from my other neighbors stating that my dogs arent a problem. Why can one person cause me so much problems? Police Chief Chris Wells explained that one letter of citation had been issued for a court date and that Land had been let go with a warning.

County Engineer Amir Zafar came before the Council to inform them that their time for this phase of road repairs were coming to an end and that the top ve roads for repair, Sand Path Road, Minnesota Avenue east of Oklahoma Avenue, Banll Avenue at McGee Street, Veneer Circle and North Varner Street and Nebraska Avenue intersection would be completed by April 28 and if there was any more time or money left they would continue working on streets. Raymon Thomas, recently hired as the Executive Director of the Holmes County Development Commission, came before the Council to inform them that the Florida Department of Transportation is considering an Interstate 10 connector between I-10 and Alabama. This is something that will forever change Bonifay and you will be remembered for what you do, said Thomas. There are three rms conducting the study with four to seven years to build out and theyve got four possible routes: a four-lane through Bonifay, a two lane two blocks over, a bypass around through County Road 173 South or a bypass around through Homestead Road. People arent going to like the idea at rst and then theyll blame you for letting it bypass them. Thomas suggested creating a steering committee for what needs to be considered with the I-10 connector. Make an appointment as soon as possible, said Thomas. You dont want them to tell you theres a meeting and this is where the roads going to be without your input. A representative from the Grifth Subdivision was present to say they met all of the citys requirements and was even going to repair the road at no cost to the city and after much discussion there was talk about possible sewer hook up with the city to which the discussion was tabled until further research. Council approved of Wells request to purchase $1,000 in ashlights with a reimbursement grant provided by the state.PHOTO BY CEc C ILIA Sp P EARs SResident Connie Land came before the Bonifay City Council during their April 14 meeting to seek reprieve from her neighbor, Misty Peak, whom she accused of too many complaints against her dogs. DOGS from page A1 RESIDENT from page A1the Council were the paving was addressed and approved, which is where the complications are since the town didnt address the issue because the Council didnt know the paving until after the fact. Its a nice street but we dont want to be pulled into any litigations for something DOT did without the authority of the city, said Spears. Mayor Ron Farrington informed the Council that Jackie Grant had moved his hardware store to the strip of road where the towns water tower is located and for 911 addressing purposes the road needed a name so at the last minute he came up with Water Tower Lane. This way it doesnt show any bias about whos living around it, said Farrington. It just had the water tower on it and I thought it was tting. The towns project of turning recycled vehicle tires into playground equipment is progressing steadily, with the tires soon to be painted and assembled at the towns park in the next few weeks. The next meeting of the Ponce de Leon Town Council and appreciation day for Edith Owens is set for 6 p.m. on May 1. an increase in trafc on State Roads 77 and 79. He said there has been meetings to encourage both Florida and Alabama to see the need for a connector further north of Interstate 10. All major roads are going four-lane and Alabama is looking for an I-10 connector to help accommodate to the increase of moving people and goods, said Martin. The largest copper shipments are from Panama City, theres an airport in Panama City; we want to present our area and create jobs. Martin said that last year they nalized a local agreement with Alabama to move forward with the study for a connector with I-10. I cant give a whole lot of details at the moment but we are looking at State Road 79 and alternate routes, said Martin. Were looking at a seven-year study to look at every possible route, new alignments, environmental impact; thats just how long it takes to look at every possibility. After a public hearing the Board approved of an ordinance to the comprehensive plan for a portion of land to be changed from Commercial to Agricultural, with the land use change being approved earlier and now in need of an ordinance, with a vote of 3 to 2 with Commissioners Bill Parish and David Whitaker voting no. Board approved of 911 Coordinator Clifton McGowan to use comp time in the extra time needed to be trained in his new position. Lane Wright with AT&T came before the Board with a proposal to build a new tower on the present easement on the Countys land to give to the county for rent of space in exchange of giving it to the county or to build the tower elsewhere with a private owner. The Board agreed to have a special meeting just for discussing the proposal. Board approved to spend $1,260 for full termite treatment for a termite issue at the courthouse with payments at $245 a year to retreat. Dogwood Lakes Golf Club owner Connie Mason came before the Board to propose selling the golf course to the county, saying they were selling for personal reasons, however theyve only been approached by out of state franchises and would much rather have the course remain local. Board agreed to table it for further consideration. Willing and able may be two different things but it is denitely something to consider, said Parish. Board approved of Whitakers idea to combine the Foreman and Bridge Crew Supervisor into a Public Works Director and advertise for that position with a vote of 3 to 2 with Monty Merchant and Kenneth Williams voting no. I calculated both those positions combined totaled $84,084, with just one Public Works Director we can be saving the county anywhere from $12,000 to almost $24,000 a year, said Whitaker. ROAD from page A1CHIPLEY Emerald Coast Hospice hosted its annual Emerald Coast Hospice memorial service Saturday, April 12, at Shiloh Baptist Church. The memorial service, which honored patients who passed away in the last year, was an opportunity for families to pay tribute to loved ones and reunite with hospice staff. Light refreshments were served, and patients and staff alike took the opportunity to speak about loved ones who had passed away and the impact patients and staff had on both the families and each other. The Chipley Emerald Coast Hospice ofce serves patients in Holmes, Washington, Jackson and Calhoun counties. Shirley Thompson of Chipley took a moment to pay tribute to her father, Wilton Haddock, who passed away in January and to thank hospice staff for their care.CAROL KENT The NewsEmerald Coast Hospice pays tributethen told him in front of the class she was going to post the video on Facebook and YouTube. The parent claims the incident is just the latest in a long line of events in which her son was singled out. She has made homosexual innuendos to him in front of the class as well, said the parent. He asked to go to the restroom after another male student had also gone, and she asked if he was the other students boyfriend, telling him he couldnt hold his hand in the bathroom. I want to know why my son, who has a documented learning disability, is being singled out. Furthermore, videoing him without my or his consent is a violation of his civil rights. Superintendent Dixon said he cant comment on the investigation but stressed placing Prevatt on Administrative Leave was merely a procedural act and doesnt constitute the school systems belief the allegations are true. At this time, it is not ethical to comment on an on going investigation concerning one of our employees, said Dixon. I can say that we investigate every complaint, however, and that (placing Prevatt on leave) is just standard school policy. Every decision made by the Holmes County School Board focuses on the singular goal of ensuring the best possible learning environment for all students.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A3Wednesday, April 16, 2014 list of ingredients for most daily body products and hair care. I found that many of the commercial producers use this chemical as a lathering, foaming agent and this tricky chemical gives one the optical illusion that the product works wonders on your skin and hair because of its luxurious lather, however, its really stripping the skin of all natural moisture, he said. Sodium lauryl sulfate is actually used as a degreaser, which shows you how strong and powerful this chemical can be. Many are fooled, as they think it leaves their skin squeaky clean but most of the natural glycerin is stripped from commercially produced soap and, thus the moisturizing is removed as well. He explained that for many people, dry skin can be a common problem and the soaps commonly used by the average consumer may very well be the quiet culprit. After switching to natural and organic soap, he said his skin no longer requires a bevy of prescription ointments and fancy creams. I have switched all of my skin care to organic and natural items wherever possible and for me, its been a rewarding change with gratifying results, said Carreiro. The goal with White Oak Organics is to rally people around a healthy change in how they take care of their skin. He said to imagine your skin and hair as a sponge and that everything you put on your skin and scalp is absorbed right into your body. In the long run, using an inexpensive set of chemicals and fillers that hurt your skin rather than help it can become a long-term problem, he said. Some people might ask why anyone would pay extra money for natural or organic soap and the answer is simple: add up the cost of mass-produced soap and dry skin lotion and youll be surprised, he said. Switching to natural or handmade soap may not cure everyones skin problems but it will certainly improve the skins quality and texture over time. Weve had children use our products with eczema and their parents talk accolades; the improvement is notable. After time he said he came up with a winning recipe for solid lotion body bars, starting specically for one woman he met at a festival. This was one of the worst cases of psoriasis I had ever seen and embarrassed by her skin, she waited until everyone at the booth had walked away, came over and asked if there was anything we could do to help her, said Carreiro. At the time, I was producing only soap but I took her address, headed home and hand-crafted a new bar. The challenge put on the table was to help this woman and others with the same skin condition. The innovation he found was that most of the creams he used for his psoriasis contained citric acid in some form and he explained that most of the lotion bars he and his family make contain natural and organic shea, mango and horsetail butters with vitamin E and carrieroil. I could hardly wait to mail them to her, he said. It may not have cured the psoriasis, but the result was gratifying. The elasticity of her skin marked a big improvement and with a few applications, our lotion bar slowed down the stretching and cracking of her skin. She was happy to report that she nally had some relief. That was just one of the many usages he found for his soaps. He added that many costumers use their soaps as aromatherapy, placing the bars under the sheets at the foot of the bed for restless leg syndrome. Although I cant make this claim to fame, if it works, why not lay back and enjoy the moment, said Carreiro. Feedback keeps pouring in on our Florida Sunrise Soap and the ght against acne. We can tout our Orange essential oil as the winning ingredient and were happy to report it never strips natural moisture from the skin. He said his main love with his line of products is that he loves to help people. Like shoemakers children, we create natural and organic solutions that make people happy with their skin, said Carreiro. Making soap lets me tune into a variety of oils and I get to work wonders with my hands every day. Were passionate about our products. Handmade soap has been around for many years and many people have shared family stories and recipes with us and in turn, we get to share back. Carreiro has taken his passion on the road, visiting fairs and festivals as a vendor, with Bonifays Down Home Street Festival being his latest stop. We just finished the Bonifay Down Home Street Festival and met so many wonderful people, he said. Now thats what I call the true labor of love, seeing new faces and some of our regulars join back at the booth for a bar of soap and not just any soap, that of White Oak Organics.

Until her high schools Drivers Education class is ready for enrollment, however, a friend of mine has volunteered to help nurture my daughters driving skills in lieu of my instruction. The offer comes due to Taylors sensitive ears. And by that, I mean I tend to ask why shes trying to kill me at full volume when I attempt to teach. How did it go? Ill ask my teen after each road session. The answer is always the same: a short, noncommittal, Fine. Fine? Now, I know Taylor is generally a very together young lady, but a mother needs more details about her childs ability to handle a 2,500-pound piece of machinery than ne. We moms need to hear something more along the lines of: Today I learned how to accurately predict what time distracted or intoxicated drivers will be on any given road so I can take alternate routes to avoid them. A response like that would be much more reassuring than Fine. It would also be reassuring if the state of Florida were to be a little more choosy about who can legally sit in the passenger seat while my 16-year old learns to drive. At present, any licensed driver over 21 is just ne and dandy. Technically, Bernie Madoff could sit at her side and give advice (on driving, not investing) if he wasnt currently otherwise engaged in federal prison. Even more frightening is the knowledge shes received past instruction from me, Queen of the California Stop. Trust when I say of all the things I should be passing down to the next generation, my driving habits are not among them. Id like to see Florida law amended to say that Taylor may only drive if accompanied by at least two paramedics (in case one is harmed in a crash along the way), her youth pastor and a state patrolman. In all seriousness, I know this milestone is one of many to come marking my teens journey into adulthood and teaching me to let go. Too bad we as parents dont have someone giving us instructions on how to take that journey safely, keeping it on the center line between holding on too loosely or too tight. I thought about that as I tossed Taylor the keys for a quick trip to the store last week. After ddling with the radio for a moment, I realized we werent moving. The questioning glance I shot her was met with a look of her own. Seat belt, Mom, she reminded me with a smile. I smiled back as I clicked the buckle, thinking the journey ahead may not be as scary as I rst thought.

Call 638-0212.New laws to protect childrenG ov. Rick Scott signed four bills last week that lengthen sentences for Floridas most violent sexualcrime convicts, strengthen monitoring of those who complete their sentences, and allow the state to commit those who fail a psychiatric review and are found to still be dangerous to a highsecurity treatment center. In particular, the laws double the mandatory-minimum sentence to 50 years for people who rape children younger than 12, developmentally disabled people or senior citizens. Two of the laws, SB 522 and SB 524, take effect July 1. The other two, SB 526 and SB 528, take effect Oct. 1. The new laws should better protect children and others unable to defend themselves from sexual attacks.One thing Scott, the legislators who helped craft and push the laws and those who will rely on them should concern themselves with immediately is the workability of the monitoring requirements. They are so convoluted that compliance might not be possible.While tough monitoring requirements are certainly needed, authorities must be able to accomplish them. Otherwise, a court challenge could result in them being ruled invalid, and that would nullify their intent. Then people who have been released from prison after completing their sentences might be freed from monitoring a wholly unacceptable result. As such, the Legislature, Governors Of ce or Attorney Generals Of ce should review the new laws thoroughly, particularly SB 528, to make sure the requirements meet all laws that might apply, and that they comply with the U.S. and state constitutions. Both houses of the Legislature, and both political parties, moved at top speed to approve this package of anti-predator bills. Two high-pressure matters propelled them: First, the June 21 killing of an 8-year-old Jacksonville girl. Cherish Perrywinkle was abducted from a Wal-Mart in Jacksonville, then raped and strangled, The Associated Press reported. The man charged with murder in Cherishs killing, Donald Smith, is a registered sex offender, of cials say. Second, a series of articles by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale. The articles examined the cases of offenders reviewed for commitment but who were set free. The articles reported that 594 sex offenders committed new crimes, in some cases on their days of release. Fourteen killings were among the crimes. Those released also molested 460 children and raped 121 women, the articles reported. As Scott signed the bills into law on Tuesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Shalimar, who worked on them, said, Florida will not be a catchand-release state as it relates to violent sexual predators. Said Scott: As a father of two girls and the grandfather of three little boys, I think about how the legislation Im signing today will affect Floridas families. It will make Florida safer. Providing for the populaces health, safety and welfare is the principle mission of state government. In no matter is this priority more clear than sexual offenses against defenseless victims. This editorial originally ran in the April 9, 2014, edition of the Panama City News Herald. With the Doctors Memorial Foundation Golf Tournament scheduled for Friday, I was busy nalizing my sponsorship and door prize sales, so I had to push my deadline to get something for the Happy Corner. The tournament was a huge success, though, and it looks like we exceeded last years total income. The ball drop won by Mike Alvis brought a lot of interest. Ten teams participated and competed for rst, second and third place as well as for a good selection of door prizes donated by our Bonifay businesses. The board composed of Ricky Calahan, Roger Brooks, Loriene Kosier, Diane Little and I are grateful to hospital employees Jennifer Cloud and Allison Blevins for stepping into the position vacated by Brenda Blitch to help us through the process. We are also grateful to our sponsors for their faithfulness year after year in making it possible to purchase helpful items and programs for our local hospital, things not in their budget. In addition to the golf tournament and Estos Two Toe Tom Festival, another interesting event was Bethlehem High Schools Heritage Festival on Saturday. Even though we have a guest artist from Asheville, N.C., on a working visit here, I found time to go to Bethlehem. When we started the blueberry business in 1984 and 85, Jacks niece Nancy Rohan was in the sign painting business after graduating with a degree in art from the University of Florida, so she created our rst and most beautiful sign. Now she is here refurbishing it and repainting it. But she and Jack did excuse me long enough for me to check Bethlehems celebration of our heritage. They started the day with a 5K run in support of Alice Hall, a Bethlehem teacher who is battling cancer. There were food booths and a cake and basket auction plus childrens activities. Of particular interest was the corn sheller, where kids were allowed to shell an ear of corn the way we did when I was growing up. We shelled it for the chickens, the mule and for taking to the grist mill where the familys corn meal supply was ground. As one by-stander said, You dont quit till you get that box full. Thats the way it was in his and my day. They also had a petting zoo where several breeds of chickens, a couple of pigs, rabbits, etc. were entertaining the younger set. A corn box similar to a sand box with hidden treasurers was also available for the small children. Lionel and Sheilia Young from Northwest Florida Living History organization were there with their circa Revolutionary War exhibit. They do living history presentations throughout North Florida, South Alabama and Georgia. Lionel is a member of the Living History Association and the Panhandle Historical Preservation Alliance. They are able to present several dramatizations of the Colonial Period, the American Revolution, War of 1812 and the Civil War Period. They were promoting Mariannas 159th anniversary of The battle of Marianna, to be Sept. 26-27 of this year. Charles Simon, county extension agent from Covington County, Ala., was there from Andalusia with his collection of memorabilia from the turpentining or naval stores industry. He also showed pictures of cracker or piney woods cattle, which he is participating in preserving as a breed. A picture of a historical mural depicting the turpentine and cattle industry in that county was on display and will soon be celebrated upon its completion in Andalusia. Homerfell Iron Works with Jared Chatwood from Vernon was on hand to demonstrate his iron working skill. A civil war of cers quarters was set up complete with a well furnished bed room and kitchen of the era where the of cer in authentic dress greeted visitors while his wife wove a rag rug on a loom. Musical instruments included banjos made from a cookie tin and a tin gas can along with a hub cap made into a bass ddle were on hand, but no demonstration while I was there. However, the dulcimer group was performing in the cafeteria. My mothers cousin Earl Cooks oldest son Floyd was among that group. Buford Williams was selling and demonstrating his straw brooms. Every household in my childhood needed at least one member to possess that skill as straw brooms were a necessity. My grandmother, Hannah Brock Wells, was the broom maker for our family. There were other exhibits which I failed to visit or get information about, but the Bethlehem Heritage festival was worth visiting. Unfortunately, the Two Toe Tom Festival, Flea Across Florida and other activities took their toll, but I would say The Heritage Festival is worth expanding. Even though the election year is just getting cranked off, I enjoyed greeting a number of candidates getting a jump-start on the campaign trail. Bethlehems second annual Heritage Festival is worth attending HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Of particular interest was the corn sheller, where kids were allowed to shell an ear of corn the way we did when I was growing up. We shelled it for the chickens, the mule and for taking to the grist mill where the familys corn meal supply was ground.

Given the recent event of the death of a teenage girl (in another state), a lot of attention has been brought to this important topic, Sheriff Tim Brown said. This issue is a nationwide problem that needs to be addressed locally. The Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce has worked several cases concerning this issue. The Florida Legislature recently addressed Bullying and Cyberbullying, classifying both as a felony. To help spread the word about anti-bullying, the HCSO challenged each Holmes County school media class and program to produce and submit a video informing the student body how important it is to not bully and showing consequences for bullying for both the victim and the bully. The videos were then judged and prizes awarded. The winning video is being shown to all schools within the county in an attempt to deter bullying. It is our goal that this project will give a positive effect for all grades to see high school students speak out against bullying, Brown said.Sp P Ec C IAl L TO TT Im M Es S -Ad AD VERTIs S ERPoplar Springs High School won First Place and a $500 prize.HCSO promotes anti-bullying efforts Bethlehem High School won third place and a $200 prize.

MCINTOSH SIGNS WITH ESCC The miscreants in Storrs, Conn., and Lexington, Ky., and by all means they are not the rst nor the last, who think that the result of an NCAA mens basketball championship game entitled them to gather in the street, start res and cause other public disturbances that lead to nearriot conditions. Im not a parade guy, because they are attended by many of the above, but maybe we need them merely to pause and appreciate for more than a breath just what has been accomplished before the speculators take over and were on to the next endeavor at warp speed. Professional athletes who celebrate the ordinary. Were heading in the direction where someone on the mound is going to react to a rst-pitch strike by stopping and pointing to the heavens. And these are the athletes who set the standard for on eld conduct that is emulated by collegians and highschoolers all the way down to 10-year-olds just learning how to enjoy the rapture of competition. Pro athletes who loudly proclaim that they love their sport so much that theyd play the game for free. OK. Go ahead and donate your salary. And is it the sport you love or the advanced level at which youve grown accustomed to playing it? Any broadcaster or writer who refers to a do-or-die situation. Try explaining that to the kids served by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Sports clichs. Anytime youre reading a story and encounter monkey on their back or backs against the wall do yourself a big favor and move on to the next headline. The guy cant write. The same with any announcer who uses the term went to the well once too often. My mother is 90 years old, and if she ever went to the well shes the only person I know who ever did. Turn off the sound on this guy. Youre better off listening to the broadcast of a World Cup game in Spanish. Anyone watching a game in a saloon or newsroom who turns to the person next to them and says, I could have told you that was going to happen. Oh really. Nine times out of 10 they probably couldnt even explain why or how it happened. Overzealous parents who are convinced their child is the next coming of Joe Montana or Mia Hamm. The blanket statement that sports builds character. Maybe so. But then how do we explain the extensive arrest records of current NFL players, and front of ce personnel for that matter? What passes for adult sports discussion during the morning and afternoon on ESPN. Get rid of it and replace it with a continuing loop of highlights and constant streamer of scores and game schedules. Interrupt for breaking news if Derek Jeter falls off a balcony during Spring Break, but not for the next gay athlete who comes out of the closet, minor-leaguers weve never heard of who get busted for use of PEDs or a multi-millionaire signing a contract extension. Men who cry at press conferences announcing their retirement. If youre going to boo-hoo, just send out a press release. Crowd isolations of parents. The Manning family is an American heirloom, but I no longer desire a close-up of Archie and the Missus. People who claim that Yogi Berra said things that he never said. More sabermetrics in baseball. Id rather just watch the game than feel like Im sitting in the front row of a Calculus I class. Gawd what a nightmare that was. Golfers who highve. They look silly. Think of something new, guys. Like tapping 5-irons or pretending youre counting $100 bills. Sleeves worn by basketball players. Most of UConns kids shot free throws just ne without them. The tradition of embracing sports is as American as gambling, carping about taxes and xating on the super cial world of Hollywood.

Thank you for helping support our local athletes!Special to The Times-AdvertiserIn cooperation with the Florida Division of Emergency Management, the Florida Association of Counties is offering a new course for elected of cials, staff and others titled Protecting Your Community from Natural Disasters: A Guide to Flood Insurance, Flood Mitigation and Wind Mitigation Programs. The course will be 9-11:45 a.m. Tuesday, April 22, at the Washington County Emergency Operations Center, located at 2300 Pioneer Road in Chipley. Recent changes to the National Flood Insurance Program will have signi cant effects on local governments and property owners across the state. Though the most recent law change is viewed favorably by many stakeholders, it raises numerous questions regarding the role of local governments in identifying ood risks, ensuring ood maps are accurate and how properties at risk of ood can be mitigated. Additionally, given our states vulnerability to high wind events, there remains a strong interest in ensuring communities can implement measures to ensure damages can be reduced or eliminated. To help understand some of the more common issues associated with the NFIP, ood mitigation, as well as wind mitigation strategies, FAC has developed these workshops where attendees will receive information about the following: An overview of the NFIP and the role of the local government of cial. How recent changes to the NFIP will affect ood insurance rates in your community. What steps your community can take to help lower rates ood insurance rates. What grant programs available to your community and residents. How to evaluate and measure a countys risk and vulnerability to high wind events. What types of wind mitigation measures are utilized in other communities What grant programs available to your community and residents You may register for the course at https:// -counties.portal.daxko.com.

Killer takes life sentence in plea dealBy CHRIS OLWELL747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY As he entered a plea of no contest to killing his wife and father-in-law, Bryan Castleman took a deep breath, rubbed his face with both hands and turned to face his wifes children and sisters. I wish I could say I knew what happened. I wish I could say I understand, Castleman started. I have no idea what happened in my house. I dont remember anything. I wish I could. Im very sorry. The family members of Mary Ann Castleman said nothing during the hearing. Prosecutor Larry Basford said he had talked with them and the Springeld Police Department about the deal, and Judge James Fensom sentenced Bryan Castleman to two consecutive life terms for killing his wife and Leroy Minnich, her ailing father, in November 2012 in the Springeld mobile home where all three lived. Mary Ann Castleman and Minnich were discovered in the home about three days after they were stabbed with a knife and beaten with a hammer. Bryan Castleman took their money and spent it on drugs and video games after the crime. Fensom told Castleman he would go to jail for the rest of his life if his plea was accepted, and he asked Castleman if he had seen the evidence prosecutors would present at trial and what he thought of it. Castleman said life in prison was better than the alternative prosecutors had in mind. Ive seen what they say theyve got it pretty much seems to leave me two options, and I choose the better of the two, Castleman said. Castleman was scheduled to go to trial later this month on two counts of rst-degree murder and two counts of robbery. He pleaded no contest to two counts of second-degree murder, thereby avoiding the death penalty, which prosecutors would have sought against him if he had been convicted. The robbery charges were dropped as part of the deal, and Castleman agreed to pay up to $1,000 in restitution for Minnichs funeral expenses. BRyan YAN ca CAStTLEmanMAN Debarking surgery is quite the controversy in pet news today. Is it inhumane? Do the possible risks outweigh the perceived benets? These are viable questions to ask when considering debarking surgery to control your dogs chronic barking. However, with April being the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, it is also important to recognize the numerous available non-surgical alternatives that are said to be safer and even more effective by veterinarians and trainers alike. As decipherable from the name, debarking surgery is the act of surgically disabling your dog from producing a loud, barking sound. Although the procedure is called debarking, it does not result in the inability for the dog to produce any sound at all, said Dr. Kelley Thieman, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Instead, the dog has a mufed quality to its bark, and in time could even regain the ability to bark. Though the benet of debarking surgery is the mufed-sounding bark, there are still numerous complications that could arise and denitely should not be overlooked. Debarking surgery carries various risks, Thieman said. During the debarking procedure itself, risks could include bleeding, swelling (preventing air ow), infection, and anesthetic complications. Scarring of the larynx can also occur after the surgery, and in some cases might be severe enough to restrict airow. This would require yet another surgical procedure to remove the scar tissue so the dog could breathe, bringing with it more unnecessary risk. Though tiresome when heard for hours on end, barking is an important way for our dogs to communicate with us. Excessive barking can often be Fido alerting us there is a stranger nearby or even he is in pain. Surgically disabling him from barking, though it might provide you with some relief, might not be appropriate when barking can also be controlled with a similarly effective alternative. The best way to prevent unwanted barking, as advised by both veterinarians and professional dog trainers, is proper training. Some other alternatives could include adequate exercise and environmental enrichment. No-bark collars, which discharge citronella spray or even a static shock in response to barking, are also available, Thieman said. However, I think that obedience training combined with exercise and fun dog activities are great options for controlling excessive barking. Most veterinarians agree debarking surgery should be used only as a last result when all other options have failed, and even then some veterinary clinics refuse to perform the surgery. When considering your options, it is important to extensively consider the alternatives to help decide if the risks of putting your dog through unnecessary surgery are really worth the benet.

But former Chipola music student James Matthews is making the trip. Matthews, a piano major at the University of West Florida, recently placed in a piano competition that will allow him to perform at Carnegie Hall. After he earned his Associate in Arts degree from Chipola College, he transferred to the University of West Florida. At the advice of a UWF professor, Heidi Salanki, Matthews submitted a video of himself performing Sergei Prokoevs Piano Sonata No. 7 for the 2014 American Protg International Piano and Strings Competition. Matthews received honorable mention, which came with the prize of performing in the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall on, Sunday, April 20. Matthews began his musical journey with jazz and blues music when he was only three. He started lessons in his teens and played in his middle school choir .  At Chipola, Matthews learned under music professor Josh Martin.

Collins was nominated to attend the FBI National Academy (Session 256) in Quantico, Va., which began in January and ended in March, 2014. Collins said The opportunity to be nominated for the academy and to attend is an honor and privilege. According to their website, the FBIs National Academy is known as one of the premier law enforcement training programs in the world for leaders in law enforcement departments and agencies, both in the U.S. and overseas. Established in 1935, the purpose of the academy is to provide advanced investigative, management, and tness training to senior ofcers and proven leaders of law enforcement organizations. In addition, the program offers undergraduate and graduate-level college courses in areas such as law, behavioral and forensic science, anti-terrorism, communication, and leadership development, all of which provide unique directed study for the candidate. The mission of the Academy is to support, promote, and enhance the personal and professional development of law enforcement leaders by preparing them for complex, dynamic, and contemporary challenges through innovative techniques, facilitating excellence in education and research, and forging partnerships throughout the world. As important as the academic and physical training candidates receive, are the friendship and networking opportunities created by the experience. Academy students forge lasting connections that strengthen local, national and global law enforcement relationships to combat the ever-growing criminal web of corruption. I met some incredibly intelligent and experienced individuals during my training, and established what will surely be true friend ships for life, said Collins as he reected on the new friends he made during the stay. The 256th session consisted of a mix of 221 U.S. law enforcement ofcers and ofcers from 24 foreign countries. Because of my attendance at the academy, I now have more than 200 new resources in the US and abroad, as well as a vast network of new friends and colleagues with whom I can share information and solve problems as theyre encountered. With such a wealth of shared knowledge and experience, there is no law enforcement issue that cannot be resolved. The National Academy provides an experience like no other for academic training, physical conditioning and networking. The goal is to equip law enforcement leaders to serve their departments and communities to their fullest ability; however, the opportunity would be lost without the support of local administration. I would like to thank Sheriff Haddock for the opportunity to attend, the members of my division for continuing their outstanding work in my absence, and my family for their unwavering support. commented Collins. He further stated, This experience has given me a lot of encouragement as a leader. It was an incredible experience and I am grateful to have been allowed to attend. I look forward to serving the people of Washington County in the years to come and now feel I can do so with greater condence. Joining former Sheriff Fred Peel, Collins is only the second FBI National Academy graduate for Washington County and the Sheriffs Ofce.

Pastor Kent Lampp and congregation invite everyone to this special presentation. Bethel Baptist Church is at 1349 Highway 173, Graceville, in the Poplar Springs School community. It is in vogue these days to regard the old hymns of the church as outdated and irrelevant. After all, many of the selections in the hymnbook were written hundreds of years ago. How possible is it for these antiquated songs to be germane to todays upbeat, sophisticated society? Admittedly, there are possible grounds for objecting to the proli c use of hymns in church services. Many hymns employ phrases and terms no longer understood by this generation of Christians. The language of most hymns is biblical. It is an honored tradition of the Church that Christian praise and worship be framed in the language of the Holy Scriptures. However, even this is a problem because of the increasing degree of biblical illiteracy among those who attend church services. Also, some hymns may refer to spiritual experiences far removed from the average Christian. Consider, for example, words like: Is your all on the altar of sacri ce laid? Your heart, does the Spirit control? You can only be blest and have peace and sweet rest, As you yield Him your body and soul. Or look at the commitment to Christ called for in the following: All To Jesus I surrender; All to Him I freely give. I will ever love and trust Him, In His Presence daily live. Unfortunately, we live in a culture where increasingly the only acceptable type of commitment is where I receive the obvious bene t and where there is an out for me if it becomes inconvenient. Hymns such as Take My Life, and Let It Be, Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken, Come, All Christians, Be Committed, and Yielded to God, do not re ect current concerns among many churchgoing people. Furthermore, some of the grand, old hymns re ect a mystical tendency that is unacceptable in our materialistic, pragmatic society. Such daring expressions from a God-intoxicated soul may even shock some people. Still, it is their other worldly character that gives some hymns their ultimate value. Dr. A. W. Tozer once commented: A great hymn embodies the purest concentrated thoughts of some lofty saint who may have long ago gone from the earth and left little or nothing behind him except that hymn. To read or sing a true hymn is to join in the act of worship with a great and gifted soul in his moments of intimate devotion. It is to hear a lover of Christ explaining to his Savior why he loves Him; it is to listen in without embarrassment on the softest whisperings of undying love between the bride and the heavenly Bridegroom. To scorn hymnody is to disregard and despise an important aspect of our spiritual heritage. Hymns always have played an important part in the life and health of the Christian Church. Many of the most-loved hymns were born in the heat of revival, when a fresh moving of the Holy Spirit was on the Church. F.W. Boreham, in one of his essays, points out that Every religious quickening in the history of the ages has immortalized itself in song. Boreham illustrates his point by writing, The spirit of the Hebrew devotion lingers in the Book of Psalms; the faith of the early Christians lives in the Te Deum; the choicest life of the medieval monasteries is bequeathed to us in the hymns of men like Bernard of Clairvaux; the age of the Puritans is revived in the stately melody of Milton. And, in the same way, the movement that brought new life to the world in the eighteenth century stands crystallized in the throbbing verse of Charles Wesley. This is not a time to throw out the old but rather to acclimate youth and new Christians to the rare ed spiritual altitude our forefathers enjoyed and embraced. It is the responsibility of the pastoral team to teach people to understand as well as to sing the grand hymns of the faith, the songs of Zion. Hymns used in congregational worship can help prepare us emotionally and mentally for the ministry of the Holy Spirit in us and through us. They should be sung thoughtfully, reminding us of our respect due to Almighty God and expressing that to Him. The assembled Church is never more glorious then when it is exalting the Risen Savior in terms worthy of His majestic nature and character. Our hymns must burst forth in opulent splendor once more on congregations intent on genuinely worshiping Deity.Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Page 4 DR. JAMES L.
