Financing Arranged (W AC) By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com ESTO The Esto Town Council had its rst reading of Ordinance 14-01, a newly revised version of the noise ordinance, during their regular meeting on May 6. Some of the new aspects include landuse, time and the sound level limit. Law enforcement has equipment for testing the sound level, with most of the quiet time set between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Enforcement is described as, upon re port any nuisance to the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce will be notied. For the rst offense a warning will be given. For any subsequent offenses a ne shall be levied of $100 and the premises, if a public establishment, shall be closed by any duly certied law enforcement agency. The nal reading and approval will be held at the next meeting. Also at this months meeting: The Council discussed new chains for the swings at John W. Clark Park. Kudos were given to the maintenance department for repairing the parks mer ry-go-round by using their own ingenuity because parts have been discontinued and are unavailable for purchase for repair. The Council discussed a possible designated area for debris after a natural disaster, which is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the Town to be eligible for public assistance. The next meeting of the Esto Town Council is set for 7 p.m. June 3. Over the course of the semester, the boy opened up to me and told me that he was there for a drug charge. I told him that I could not believe that, that I knew it was not his nature. The boy teared up and said that I was the rst person who ever told him that. He said that his father had forced him to deliver drugs knowing that he was too young to go to prison. I remember asking myself, What did his lawyer do for him, what did the judge do, how did our system fail this bright young man? I knew I had to do something to help our system. After that, Virga applied for and was accepted to the Cumberland School of Law and Samford University. Virgas legal career spans more than a decade, including experience law clerking for United States Sen. Jeff Ses sions and serving as an assistant attor ney general before returning to Floridas Panhandle to open his own practice. He is married to fellow attorney Ra chel Seaton-Virga, and they have two children, Vivi and Gerard.

During Mondays meeting, City At torney Lucas Taylor told the Council he had reviewed all of the legal require ments and waivers with Hummel and that they were in full agreement, sign ing all the necessary paperwork. The Council approved that Hummel could use the area under the agreed guidelines and that Council member Roger Brooks would have authority to approve any improvements Hummel wished to do to the building within reason. Brooks told the Council there have been complaints about mosquitoes and requested that when the mosquito sprayer starts that he starts on the southeast end of Bonifay, where there are large bodies of standing water. The Council approved of canceling its regular meeting on May 26 in obser vance of Memorial Day. The Council also approved of its an nual request to the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners for the amount of $60,000 for the Street Depart ment and $60,000 for the Bonifay Fire Department. Bonifay received the bids for the ex cavator they intend on purchasing and approved to take each of the bids under consideration to bring for approval dur ing a special called meeting later in the month. Council member Richard Woodham suggested the City take up random drug testing for City employees, and the Council agreed to inform the employees that random drug testing would begin the next month, pulling an employees name randomly once a month. The Council agreed there has been an issue recently with landscapers and lawn maintenance employed by residents dumping their cuttings in the streets and having them clog gut ters and wash into the sewers.

From Staff Reports BONIF A Y The Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce reports that Holmes County resident Hazel Denise Peacock made her rst appearance in court Thursday on manslaughter charges for stabbing her livein boyfriend Tony Ray Arm strong on June 17, 2013. On June 17, 2013, the HCSO received a 911 call from Pea cock, who told dispatchers Arm strong had fallen down the front steps of their trailer in the Esto community and landed on his knife, according to the report. Holmes County deputies, along with Holmes County EMS, responded and found Armstrong in the front yard with a severe knife wound to his chest. He was transported to Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Ala., and underwent emergen cy surgery but never regained consciousness and died from complications a few days later, according to the police report. Investigators noted several in consistencies in Peacock state ment and discovered signs of drug use at the residence. The report indicated investiga tors were later able to locate a 911 call from Armstrongs cell phone that had been routed to the Jackson County Sheriffs Ofce in which he stated he had been stabbed in the neck. Investigators also were able to locate witnesses who indicat ed Peacock and Armstrong had been arguing that morning and he was stabbed as a result of the altercation. After a 9-month investigation, a warrant was is sued for the arrest of Peacock on charges of manslaughter. Peacock is currently serv ing a sentence in the Florida Department of Corrections for neglect of a child, which also stemmed from the incident.

He was the only good guy with con nections with the drug dealers, because in our neighborhood, if you wanted to do any thing, you had to get permission from the drug dealers, Paul said. When there were community events held to raise funds for the children, there was never any trouble or ghts, which was amazing because in our neighborhood, there was always gun shots going off and sirens. He held block parties and fundraisers. His family said Morales faced a lifechanging event when he was in the Marines and his platoon was hit with an improvised explosive devise, putting him in a threemonth coma and killing the rest of his pla toon. Morales was honorably discharged, but his family said there was a noticeable difference in the way he acted, saying he had an amazing zest for life and a disregard for conventional etiquette, choosing to live every day as if it were his last. Julia said it was because of crack that they nally left New York for Fort Lauderdale. The use of crack spread like wildre through our neighborhood, she said. I would have to sweep crack pipes off of the front porch every morning so that the chil dren wouldnt play with them. Eventually, they would nd property in Holmes County, where Morales dreamed of open spaces and fresh air, Julia said. There were hardly any trees in the Bronx, she said. You shouldve seen him when we came to live in Holmes County; he was like a man tasting freedom for the rst time with all of this open space and nature to enjoy. She said he was a Holmes County 4-H agent and worked with the West Florida Wilderness until his diabetes took his left eye, putting him on disability. It wasnt long afterward that he cre ated Bens Place Animal Rescue Shelter. Named after a good friend, Morales took in animal and person alike as a social worker and humanitarian. Paul and Jorge said Morales instilled in them a strong work ethic, which enabled them to come into their professions today; one is a doctor and the other a lawyer. He would bribe my friends to come over and then work them to the bone, but every time they were invited over, they knew theyd be put to work, and yet they chose to come every time, Paul said. Jorge said it was a gene in the family that caused one to be completely seless. His mother had it strong, and it was passed on to him, Jorge said. He was completely seless, giving all he had and never looking after himself. I know theres a little in all of us because of him, and now its up to us to carry on his legacy of giving. Bens Place Animal Rescue Shelter is now closed, and Julia begs the community not to bring animals to the shelter because she is not equipped to help them as Mo rales was. I thank the community for all their help, Julia said. Especially Alaqua Ani mal Rescue for taking over 70 animals in their care. Wilfredo wouldve wanted them to go to a no-kill shelter; he wouldve been very happy to know they are all taken care of. Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.jamesandlipford.com, and Mo rales obituary can be viewed at www.boni faynow.com. Also approved: To waive the fee for the Mosquito Control Buildings Electrical Permit. To rehire last years six-month seasonal employee for mosquito con trol to start addressing the mosquito problem immediately. To accept the lowest bid for re placing the heat pump at the Holmes County Jail for $3,000. To go to the next bid applicant for the Small County Rural Assistance Program grant received by the county for County Road 177 for the amount of $436,792.66, which Commissioner Ken neth Williams said was $34,000 less than the first bidders price. To interview all seven candidates for position of Public Works director before the meeting on May 13, with a vote of 4-1, with Williams voting no. Commissioners also discussed various ways of purchasing three new graders for the county with Commis sioner Bobby Sasnett pushing hard for a grader for his district because one of the two graders is broken. Af ter much discussion, no agreement was reached, no action was taken and the Board agreed to revisit the issue during their next meeting on Tuesday, May 13. ROADS from page A1 LEGACY from page A1

When people from other states think of Florida, they think of Miami or the Gold Coast. Talking to someone on the phone from Virginia the other day, she remarked, You have a Southern accent. Where are you from? Most people from Florida dont have a Southern accent. Several years ago, Gloria Jahoda, the wife of an FSU professor, discovered West Florida and was so intrigued with its difference from the Southern part of the state that she wrote a book called The Other Florida. An article in the most recent Florida Trend magazine showcased Palm Beach County, which is in direct contrast to our area which is known as the Panhandle but also known as a pioneer area or the last frontier because of its late development. Palm Beach County is one area of Florida weve never visited, although we have relatives there. (Find a place in Florida where the Wells family doesnt have relatives.) When I was growing up, my mother had an uncle who lived and raised his family in West Palm Beach. We always thought anybody who lived somewhere other than here was wealthier than we were. That wouldnt have taken much doing. They were clean, well dressed and the aunt talked proper. So I imagined them living in one of those beautiful homes you see pictures of in Palm Beach where railroad magnate the Henry Flagler family and the E.F. Hutton/Majorie Merriweather Post families have homes. The Kennedy estate is also there, along with other familiar names in the nancial world. I learned several things from the article. First, Palm Beach County, one of Floridas largest counties geographically, is divided into four sections. It contains 2,500 square miles, 500 of which is in Lake Okeechobee. The central part is home to Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, West Palm Beach and Manalapan. This area houses county government of ces and school board of ces as well as the South Florida Water Management District, which controls the critical ow of water from the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee. This area also houses the nancial of ces of many large corporations including Florida Crystals, the sugar-producing giant. The countys only stop on the All-Aboard-Florida high speed train will be in the central section of Palm Beach County when it goes into service next year. The south section was once thought to be mostly for retired people. This idea was promoted in the TV series Seinfeld, whose TV parents lived in Boca Raton, which was Floridas rst planned and developed cities. But its population now has a median age of 41.1 years. The technical industry is centered in the south section. The north section of the county is home to several colleges and universities and developed communities with numerous golf courses. Cities in this area include Riviera Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Singer Island, Jupiter and Tequesta. The western section is considered the countys breadbasket. You may be surprised as I was to know the scope of the agricultural interests in Palm Beach County. Fourhundred thousand acres, onethird of the countys land mass, is planted in sugar cane. Fresh sweet corn, rice, bell peppers, lettuce, radishes, Chinese vegetables, cucumbers and numerous nurseries add an additional $2 billion to the countys annual income. I did know that the best sweet corn comes from Belle Glade. In spite of this, Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee have always been the poorest areas with high crime and unemployment. Non-agricultural development is now beginning to bring a higher standard of living to this area. The focus of this article is that Palm Beach County is the perfect business climate for those looking for opportunities. I just found it interesting to know more about this place, which I had always thought of as moviestar glamorous, especially the extensive part agriculture plays in this diverse county. Some demographics: The population is expected to top 1.46 million by 2015. Whites make up 58.7 percent of the non-Hispanic population with Hispanics totaling 20.1 percent and blacks totaling 18.2 percent. The percent of the population over 25 with a high school education or higher is 87.2, and 32.9 percent have bachelor or higher degrees. Most of us are happy with our area and love the slower pace of our lives here. However, St. Joe Company has some long-range plans for the development of a large portion of its Bay and Walton County properties, which will certainly bring changes to our way of life in the next 50 years.

Ideally, we will all take a moment to think of sacri ces made by American service men and women to uphold the liberties we enjoy every day. North Korea, China and Libya are among more than 20 countries under dictatorships. Arguably, the list of those willing to put their lives on the line so the people of those countries may have the right to choose their leaders is considerably shorter than the list of those who have given their lives to protect that freedom for Americans. That thought begs the question: Why do we neglect our right to vote? Voter turnout for Vernons City Election last month was nothing short of apathetic, with only about 10 percent of those eligible to vote in the municipal election casting ballots. Ten percent. That means 90 percent essentially surrendered a precious right protected by our veterans who showed up for them on the battle elds, sacri cing their personal interests for the greater good of this nation and its people. True, Vernon, Chipley, Bonifay and our other local communities are small towns. But our right to vote is a liberty we must not take for granted. Sure, we know the arguments for not voting: What does my vote do, anyway? I dont like either candidate. I already know whos going to win, so why bother? Im so fed up with politicians that Im not giving anyone my support. Its no secret government and politics on all levels have left many of us with a sour taste, but if we dont speak up at the polls, were taking the power completely out of our hands and placing it in theirs. Lobbyists and special interest groups will certainly show up at the polls whether we do or not. We shouldnt let the discouragement and disillusionment many of us currently feel toward some leaders prevent us from making our voices heard at the ballot box. If the powers that be feel were not paying attention, theyre more likely to push their own agendas instead of the desires of the public. Washington and Holmes counties will see several candidates on the ballot for this years primary and general elections. Just as our mothers urged us to eat what was served for supper because children were starving in other countries, we should be grateful our plates are full of opportunities after which citizens of other nations hunger. Dont let our freedom go to waste. Lets get out and vote in every election no matter the appeal of what we nd offered on the plate. CAROL KENT Editor Most of us know someone who has battled depression. Many of us occasionally battle it ourselves. But depression isnt the main topic of this column; its just merely the setting for something so much bigger. Ive been blessed with an area of work that, at times, may show me the darkest side of humanity. But it also shows me humanity at its brightest. Depression is often described as a dark cloud that follows someone, with rare breaks and plenty of rainy days. Id like to tell you two stories of rain Ive encountered that have been followed with rainbows of hope that have touched my life in a profound way. It was rainy days that recently closed down roads and schools in both Washington and Holmes counties, rain that lasted for days. It wasnt until later we learned one of the places hit hardest was the Seacrest Wolf Preserve. The waters swelled the pond in the Arctic enclosure on one end, causing the dam to burst and sending water with such force down the middle that it ripped up the ground, carried off trees and debris and broke the fence on the other side. This is a place that runs off donations and hard work, and founder Cynthia Watkins, as anyone who has ever visited could see, views the animals as her family. Since 1999, shes built the preserve up, only to have almost all of it torn down in just one night. Watkins thought one wolf was lost under the mud and debris and another was stuck outside the gates. After years of trying to build understanding between people and the wolves, I could only imagine how much it hurt to have one of them killed. I cant say what the best call would have been, but I saw how she grieved, with so much sadness and anger that Ive only seen in parents whove lost their children. Through it all, Ive also seen the response of those who came to help rebuild. Ive seen the one they thought was lost returned. Ive seen the way she held the one surviving wolf cub of the one that was shot. She fawned over the cub with so much adoration and pride. I couldnt help but feel the hope for a brighter tomorrow. Holmes County lost an animal lover of its own last week with the sudden death of Wilfredo Morales, owner of Bens Place Animal Rescue in Bonifay. The resulting tragedy was a family without a loved one and so many animals without a guardian, but as I went and visited his family, I found the community was quick to respond, with local animal shelters taking in the animals and eventually all nding a place. I found that even though his widow, Julia, was mourning the death of her beloved husband and closing the shelter, she was also surrounded by family. They werent crying, but celebrating his life, sharing stories and pictures and planning to live out his memory so that Morales will live on in each of them. These are just two in the last couple of weeks where something has happened and yet people have endured and carried on and made the world a brighter place for it. I cant help but to be in awe. No matter how many times I see the kindness of our communities, it still overwhelms me. Seeing that strength and courage gives me encouragement to press on a little harder or let go of those things that tie me down but have no real meaning in my life, like petty disagreements and people who are just honestly having a bad day and struggling with something, too. I believe everyone has their rainclouds, but I also realize we may be the only sunshine they see that day. I encourage at least one smile when you dont feel like it, and if you go through a drive through window, try paying it forward, by paying for the order of the folks behind you. I know when I do it I call it getting my shine on, because it makes me feel so much better, and I hope it makes someones day, too. Thanks again for joining me, and I look forward to next week.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, May 14, 2014 Preserve founder protests wolfs euthanization by FWC By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Tragedy begot tragedy as Chaco, the wolf missing from the Seacrest Wolf Preserve since April 30, was put down by Flor ida Fish and Wildlife Con servation Commission of cers late on the evening of May 4. According to Stan Kirk land, FWC regional media ofcer, the commission re ceived a call from preserve owner Cynthia Watkins on May 1, informing them one of their wolves had gone missing after ooding cre ated a mudslide that ripped through the middle of the 15-acre preserve. Kirkland said they re ceived a call May 2 report ing the wolf had been spot ted near Wausau. Kirkland also said another report was made the following evening that Chaco was spotted back at the pre serve; however, Watkins was unable to place a col lar on him. By May 3, FWC ofcers still were unsuccessful in capturing Chaco with live traps baited with hamburg er, venison and dog food, Kirkland said. Late on the evening of May 4, FWC ofcers received a call from the Washington County Sher iffs Ofce informing them an investigator spotted Chaco near Roulhac Mid dle School in Chipley. We responded with several people at sundown, and it was then they made the decision to euthanize the wolf, knowing that the children would be return ing to school on Monday morning, Kirkland said. We were retrieving the carcass for Mrs. Watkins when we had to assist with another wolf who was try ing to get back into the enclosure. We were able to get the wolf safely back into the enclosure without harm. The Seacrest Wolf Pre serve is a Class 2 Facility and permitted for wolves, which are a Class 2 species. Kirkland said the facility is under investigation but would not disclose the na ture of that investigation. Meanwhile, Watkins said she doesnt know why the preserve would be un der investigation and called Sundays event a blatant act of murder. This tragedy of the killing of Chaco is totally unjustied and unconscio nable, Watkins said. It could have been prevented if the proper agencies had worked with integrity and humane goals with the Seacrest owners. Were struggling hour by hour to keep the wolves fed while xing the enclo sures. Were also shocked and devastated by the mur der of Chaco by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission. They lied to us. Knowing he was headed toward Chipley, they told us he was seen coming back to the preserve (in the opposite direction) and that we should put out bait to lure him back in. Watkins said someone living on Pioneer Road spotted the wolf and want ed to call the preserve. Be cause he couldnt nd the number, he contacted both the WCSO and the FWC for the preserves contact information. According to Watkins account of the mans story, both agencies told him they didnt have the preserves contact information. They murdered him intentionally, telling us to come back to the preserve to bait him back in knowing he was headed north, Wat kins said. They refused to catch him humanely and lied, saying they had a live trap borrowed from the Red Wolf Preserve. When we got him back, we could clearly see it was a text book kill, right through the heart, which means he was standing still when they took the shot and not run ning away like they said he was. Watkins also said the preserve has been receiv ing calls from across the nation from outraged wolf enthusiasts and wildlife conservationists. Id like to share the in cidents FWC case number, FWNW140FF4545, for any one else interested in tak ing a stand, Watkins said. Watkins said there is a positive note to the story, however. Forrest, the wolf previously thought to be left dead by the mudslide, was the wolf that re-en tered the preserve. Forrest was reported to be visibly thinner from hunger but is expected to make a full recovery. Watkins said the facility is still in desperate need of donations, including man power, supplies and mon etary donations, because of the thousands of dollars in damage caused by the mudslide. Volunteers from all around have been working day and night to repair the damage, which is estimated to be around $50,000. Wat kins stressed the preserve is relying on the generosity and compassion of volun teers to donate time, manpower, supplies and money to the cause. We will still be open for tours on Saturday, Wat kins said. Weve repaired the visiting area, and our ambassadors are up for visitors. Because we are completely nonprot, this is the only way we will be able to raise the money needed to repair the dam age: through donations and tours. In addition to monetary donations, the preserve is in need of fencing and la borers. Materials needed include fencing measur ing about 10 feet tall; 11 gauge fencing, which is the strongest gauge of fence; fencing posts; claps; wire; logs; rocks; dirt; and con crete. Labor volunteers should be adapted to heavy labor because there are rocks and debris that need to be moved and removed.

BATTLE OF THE BADGES By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com B O NI FA Y Harris III, Master Illusionist, was the rst guest during the May 7 meeting of the Bonifay Kiwanis Club. Ive devoted my life to expos ing deceptions, Harris said. Its crazy, all these mixed messages trying to convince us of what life is all about. On average, a person takes in 4,000 to 5,000 messages a day, from advertising on television, billboards and other media people arent even aware of, he said. We now take on so much more media inuence than ever before, and not just on our televisions; thousands of messages a day, consciously and unconsciously selling us lies, telling us to just drive this, buy this, wear this, just do this and it will give you life, Harris said. Its crazy because a commercial will say, Buy this be cause after all, you deserve it, and then a few seconds go by, and the next commercial will say, I know that those other guys said you deserve it, but lets face it; youre just not enough. You are not thin enough, beautiful enough, strong enough, smart enough; youre just not enough, but if you bought this, then you would be enough, Before we know it, we settle for believing an illusion, a fake ver sion of the life we were meant to live. It is so easy to be deceived. He said when he was a kid, he wanted a baseball mitt for his birthday, and instead, he got a magic kit, and he became good enough as a teenager to take his act on the road, making large sums of money but missing some thing essential. Its funny that magic re ally did change my life, he said. When I was 20 years old travel ing the world doing magic shows, making friends and making money and everything I wanted, no matter how much I did or how much I had, I still felt totally empty, so I ended up going on this search for the truth because deep down, I felt like Ive been lied to by the world, and in reality I had been the magician, the illusion ist, the expert in deception that I was had been cleverly deceived into settling for an illusion, and I remembered the principles of deception are universal, and its like a light went off, and all I could think was that I was going to use my illusions to tell others the truth about lies. Im on a mission to tell the truth about deception. Consider this your invitation to join me. Harris now dedicates his time and efforts to nonprot organiza tions to help promote their mes sages. For example, he assisted the Holmes County Health De partments Tobacco Free Holmes and SWAT club of Chipley High School to promote a tobacco-free lifestyle with a free magic show at Chipley High School recently.

SPORT S www.bonifaynow.com A Section This space hasnt always been kind to ESPN or the NFL. But for one weekend a year a cease-re is merited. Televising the NFL Draft was the smartest thing either company accomplished since Australian Rules Football went to the TV vault alongside My Mother the Car and the NFL moved the goal posts to the back line of the end zone. Tuning in to Jon Gruden and company is like listening to a TV weatherman tell us what to expect, and nding out 10 minutes later he doesnt know any more about his area of expertise than the rest of us. What can be as refreshing as that? To be sure, the NFL Draft is resplendent with more lame interviews than a seminar on sideline reporting, only this time at least they are conducted with relieved athletes about to become millionaires. Its also a kumbaya convention, has more faux hugs than a beauty pageant and the last time Chris Berman was relevant Blondie was recording No. 1 hits. But if youre a Cleveland Browns fan, you witnessed more drama in less than 2 hours on Thursday night than you saw all last football season. Weve become a culture held hostage by speculation, but for one night a year it ends in resolution within minutes. So much for the mock drafts that ood the Internet starting in March. Theyre as compelling as an Anthony Weiner campaign for dogcatcher. While there was some pleasure watching Johnny Manziel drink water like it was bathtub gin while waiting for his name to be called, the bottom line is that hes soon to sign a contract worth more money than the combined wages of all Minnesota McCanns for eternity. Its also somewhat noteworthy that its common to hear athletes speak of Gods plan in times of crisis. Ive never heard a coach talk about Gods plan upon being hired, but Ive witnessed a few echo that sentiment when red. Perhaps the best moment for many local viewers, however, irrespective of team allegiance, came when Calvin Pryor was taken on the 18th pick by the New York Jets. The Port St. Joe graduate grew up and ourished in our area. That he will have an opportunity to live the good life that professional sports can provide enriches all of us who have followed his career from high school through Louisville. That occurrence was heightened on Friday evening, when Khyri Thornton, who played at Bay High School, went to the Green Bay Packers in the third round. Then there are many college football fans who track the progress of players from their favorite university. That provides a sidelight for those who dont actively follow the NFL. But maybe the best reward from this years collection of talent was that the second round on Friday produced nearly as representative group of future pros as was seen on Thursday night. Not all drafts are created equal. Neither are all television extravaganzas.

It hasnt been coming from Bucks head coach Jeff Patton or the baseball team. At press time, Chipley was set to play at Bozeman at 7 p.m. Tuesday night in the Region 2-1A champi onship game. If Bozeman wins, it would be a third straight region title for the Bucks program. But Chipley plans on stop ping that from happening. The Bucks are 20-7 and the Tigers 21-7, but perhaps more importantly, Chipley is 16-1 at home. Weve built a real good following this season, Ti gers coach Andy Compton said. Its taken awhile. Weve struggled the last few years we were in a district with (Pensacola) Catholic and Bay in a four-year span. This year our fan base really has supported this group. Our guys are condent at home, thats been the fun part about it. I think the home eld does play a little bit into it, but at this point in time when the game starts Im sure both teams will compete very well. Neither Patton nor Compton wanted to tip his hand on a starting pitcher. Patton named Brandon Suttles and Alec Aleywine as possibles. Compton des ignated Jordan Finch or Daniel Floyd. While the schools havent played in recent seasons, the programs have met dur ing summer baseball and its clear that the coaches have a mutual respect for the opposition. They have good pitch ing, have some guys who throw with some velocity and Coach Compton does a good job, Patton said. Whereas Aleywine (.417) and Suttles (.395) have been formidable throughout, Pat ton now has Webb (.323), Nicky Agosto and Thomp son at .301 and Priester at .288, the latter with an RBI surge starting with the dis trict tournament. Special to Times-Advertiser PENSACOLA The Chipola Lady Indians won two and lost two to nish third in the Gulf District bracket of the FCSAA State tournament. Chipola came into the tourney as the third-place team out of the Panhandle but opened play May 3 with a pair of wins over State College of Florida and Hillsborough. Two Chipola players were named to the Gulf District All-Tournament Team: utility player, Ka tie Harrison and catcher, Brashante Dareus. Har rison also was named to the FCSAA All-Tournament team. In Chipolas rst game, Jessica Elliott, had a threehit shutout with eight strikeouts and in a 4-0 win over State College of Florida. In the Lady Indians sec ond game Chipola jumped out to a 6-0 lead over Hill sborough and held on for a 6-4 win. Elliott retired nine of the rst 10 batters. Rosanne de Vries relieved Elliott in the fourth. Chipola opened Satur days action with a 7-5 loss to Tallahassee, the eventu al state champion. Facing elimination, the Lady Indi ans fell to Polk State, 6-4. Tallahassee Community College defeated the Col lege of Central Florida, 4-1, to capture the FCSAA State Championship. Chipola nished its sea son with a record of 34-22. The Lady Indians were the defending FCSAA/Region VIII Champions. In nine seasons at the helm of the program, head coach Belinda Hendrix has won ve Panhandle Conference titles; three state titles: 2007, 2010 and 2013; and a national cham pionship in 2007. She has coached more than 84 AllConference Players and 12 NJCAA All Americans. The program has sent more than 50 players on to fouryear institutions and boasts 99-percent graduation rate.

Typically deemed the Orange and Blue game, play will be replaced with a scrimmage of offense against defense. With the implementation of an entirely new offense that features a totally new concept for the Jackets, coaches will utilize this night to evaluate how far along the new scheme has progressed. The game will also feature the Vernon Quarterback Club baby back rib sale. Rib slabs can be purchased at the game for $20 beginning at 5 p.m. until the completion of the game. The Jackets will then turn their focus to the spring game next Thurs day night, May 22, at home against Freeport High School. Game time is 6 p.m. due to being held on a school night. The format will be a complete game with the exception of no live kicking. This will be the rst time to see a much im proved and more experi enced Yellow Jacket team that hopes to ride last years success and this years returning experience to a deeper playoff run, says Head Coach Bobby Johns. This years team returns 10 offensive starters and 8 defensive. Along with those returners, several young players from last years squad have really improved and will look to make a huge contribution to this years success. Hopefully, with the maturing of many of last years key contributors, the 2014 installment of the Vernon Yellow Jackets will make this one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory. Among those returning is Austin Brown. Brown has received ten Division 1 scholarship offers so far from the likes of the Univer sity of Wisconsin, Univer sity of South Florida, and Southern Mississippi. Please join us in Ver non this Thursday at 6:30 for the scrimmage, urges Johns. And we need ev eryone at the Jackets Nest next Thursday night as the Jackets face Freeport as well.

Local A8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, May 14, 2014 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Hundreds of motorcyclists made Boni fay one of their pit stops as they made their way across America on May 9 for the 20th anniversary Kyle Petty Ride Across America. Visitors included NAS CARs Kyle Petty, Geoff Bodine, Harry Grant, NFLs Herschel Walker and FOX News Col. Allen West. Twenty years ago, Petty and three friends rode their motorcycles from North Carolina to a NASCAR race at Phoenix Interna tional Raceway. Along the way, several friends joined the ride until the group was more than 30 riders, and the turnout inspired Petty to turn the event into a charity ride to raise mon ey for a cause. In 2004, the Petty family wanted their ride to focus on Victory Junction, locat ed on 84 acres in Randle man, N.C., for enriching the lives of children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses in honor of their late son, Adam Petty. This year, Kyle Petty will lead approximately 200 riders coast to coast for the rst time, travel ing from Carlsbad, Calif., to Daytona Beach from May 3-10, and as a result of the charity ride, more than 7,730 children have attend ed Victory Junction at no cost to their families. Fans and spectators have gathered along the Charity Ride route also contribute to the Charity Rides Small Change. Big Impact. program, which accepts donations at local stops.

Page 4 Wednesday, May 14, 2014 In looking forward to Mothers Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they cleanup are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terric mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none have dirty hands from cleaning up messes. I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions: Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. Politicians ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately... without delay. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is they never stop until the work is nished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. It would be benecial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or ve kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrice himself to benet other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. DR. JAMES L. SNYDER Out to Pastor Why mothers would make good politicians Faith EVENTS

Morales was born in New York City on June 22, 1957, to the late Gilberto and Justiniana Morales. He was a graduate of All Hallows High School, receiving his Bach elor of Arts degree in political sci ence from Pace University and his Masters of Public Adminis tration from John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City Uni versity of New York. When he was in college, his political science professor dared him to run for ofce, telling him that if he really wanted to make a difference, hed have to be an elected ofcial, said his now widow, Julia. He ran for school board and at the age of 18 was the youngest elected ofcial in the state of New York. After serving several terms, he was school board president before he left. His nephews, Jorge and Paul Salazar, said Morales was a fa ther gure to them and said when they lived in the Bronx, Morales was an important member of the community, taking up the distri bution of commodities from their Virga makes bid for circuit judgeFrom Staff ReportsPanama City native Gerard Vir ga has announced his candidacy for the 14th Circuit Judges race. Virga is a graduate of Ruther ford High School and attended Gulf Coast State Col lege before transferring to the University of Florida, where he majored in history. He then began a career teaching civic and American history at the Panama City Marine Institute and says thats where he was rst inspired to study law. I was teaching American history to a young seventh-grade boy, Virga said. This boy was very bright and enthusiastic ... I could not understand how this boy could have gotten himself in trouble and sentenced to the Marine Institute.

Financing Arranged (WAC) By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com ESTO The Esto Town Council had its rst reading of Ordinance 14-01, a newly revised version of the noise ordinance, during their regular meeting on May 6. Some of the new aspects include landuse, time and the sound level limit. Law enforcement has equipment for testing the sound level, with most of the quiet time set between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Enforcement is described as, upon re port any nuisance to the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce will be notied. For the rst offense a warning will be given. For any subsequent offenses a ne shall be levied of $100 and the premises, if a public establishment, shall be closed by any duly certied law enforcement agency. The nal reading and approval will be held at the next meeting. Also at this months meeting: The Council discussed new chains for the swings at John W. Clark Park. Kudos were given to the maintenance department for repairing the parks mer ry-go-round by using their own ingenuity because parts have been discontinued and are unavailable for purchase for repair. The Council discussed a possible designated area for debris after a natural disaster, which is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the Town to be eligible for public assistance. The next meeting of the Esto Town Council is set for 7 p.m. June 3. Over the course of the semester, the boy opened up to me and told me that he was there for a drug charge. I told him that I could not believe that, that I knew it was not his nature. The boy teared up and said that I was the rst person who ever told him that. He said that his father had forced him to deliver drugs knowing that he was too young to go to prison. I remember asking myself, What did his lawyer do for him, what did the judge do, how did our system fail this bright young man? I knew I had to do something to help our system. After that, Virga applied for and was accepted to the Cumberland School of Law and Samford University. Virgas legal career spans more than a decade, including experience law clerking for United States Sen. Jeff Ses sions and serving as an assistant attor ney general before returning to Floridas Panhandle to open his own practice. He is married to fellow attorney Ra chel Seaton-Virga, and they have two children, Vivi and Gerard.

During Mondays meeting, City At torney Lucas Taylor told the Council he had reviewed all of the legal require ments and waivers with Hummel and that they were in full agreement, signing all the necessary paperwork. The Council approved that Hummel could use the area under the agreed guidelines and that Council member Roger Brooks would have authority to approve any improvements Hummel wished to do to the building within reason. Brooks told the Council there have been complaints about mosquitoes and requested that when the mosquito sprayer starts that he starts on the southeast end of Bonifay, where there are large bodies of standing water. The Council approved of canceling its regular meeting on May 26 in obser vance of Memorial Day. The Council also approved of its annual request to the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners for the amount of $60,000 for the Street Depart ment and $60,000 for the Bonifay Fire Department. Bonifay received the bids for the ex cavator they intend on purchasing and approved to take each of the bids under consideration to bring for approval dur ing a special called meeting later in the month. Council member Richard Woodham suggested the City take up random drug testing for City employees, and the Council agreed to inform the employees that random drug testing would begin the next month, pulling an employees name randomly once a month.

From Staff Reports BONIIFA A Y The Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce reports that Holmes County resident Hazel Denise Peacock made her rst appearance in court Thursday on manslaughter charges for stabbing her livein boyfriend Tony Ray Arm strong on June 17, 2013. On June 17, 2013, the HCSO received a 911 call from Pea cock, who told dispatchers Arm strong had fallen down the front steps of their trailer in the Esto community and landed on his knife, according to the report. Holmes County deputies, along with Holmes County EMS, responded and found Armstrong in the front yard with a severe knife wound to his chest. He was transported to Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Ala., and underwent emergen cy surgery but never regained consciousness and died from complications a few days later, according to the police report. Investigators noted several in consistencies in Peacock state ment and discovered signs of drug use at the residence. The report indicated investiga tors were later able to locate a 911 call from Armstrongs cell phone that had been routed to the Jackson County Sheriffs Ofce in which he stated he had been stabbed in the neck. Investigators also were able to locate witnesses who indicat ed Peacock and Armstrong had been arguing that morning and he was stabbed as a result of the altercation. After a 9-month investigation, a warrant was is sued for the arrest of Peacock on charges of manslaughter. Peacock is currently serv ing a sentence in the Florida Department of Corrections for neglect of a child, which also stemmed from the incident.

He was the only good guy with con nections with the drug dealers, because in our neighborhood, if you wanted to do any thing, you had to get permission from the drug dealers, Paul said. When there were community events held to raise funds for the children, there was never any trouble or ghts, which was amazing because in our neighborhood, there was always gun shots going off and sirens. He held block parties and fundraisers. His family said Morales faced a lifechanging event when he was in the Marines and his platoon was hit with an improvised explosive devise, putting him in a threemonth coma and killing the rest of his pla toon. Morales was honorably discharged, but his family said there was a noticeable difference in the way he acted, saying he had an amazing zest for life and a disregard for conventional etiquette, choosing to live every day as if it were his last. Julia said it was because of crack that they nally left New York for Fort Lauderdale. The use of crack spread like wildre through our neighborhood, she said. I would have to sweep crack pipes off of the front porch every morning so that the chil dren wouldnt play with them. Eventually, they would nd property in Holmes County, where Morales dreamed of open spaces and fresh air, Julia said. There were hardly any trees in the Bronx, she said. You shouldve seen him when we came to live in Holmes County; he was like a man tasting freedom for the rst time with all of this open space and nature to enjoy. She said he was a Holmes County 4-H agent and worked with the West Florida Wilderness until his diabetes took his left eye, putting him on disability. It wasnt long afterward that he cre ated Bens Place Animal Rescue Shelter. Named after a good friend, Morales took in animal and person alike as a social worker and humanitarian. Paul and Jorge said Morales instilled in them a strong work ethic, which enabled them to come into their professions today; one is a doctor and the other a lawyer. He would bribe my friends to come over and then work them to the bone, but every time they were invited over, they knew theyd be put to work, and yet they chose to come every time, Paul said. Jorge said it was a gene in the family that caused one to be completely seless. His mother had it strong, and it was passed on to him, Jorge said. He was completely seless, giving all he had and never looking after himself. I know theres a little in all of us because of him, and now its up to us to carry on his legacy of giving. Bens Place Animal Rescue Shelter is now closed, and Julia begs the community not to bring animals to the shelter because she is not equipped to help them as Mo rales was. I thank the community for all their help, Julia said. Especially Alaqua Ani mal Rescue for taking over 70 animals in their care. Wilfredo wouldve wanted them to go to a no-kill shelter; he wouldve been very happy to know they are all taken care of. Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.jamesandlipford.com, and Mo rales obituary can be viewed at www.boni faynow.com. Also approved: To waive the fee for the Mosquito Control Buildings Electrical Permit. To rehire last years six-month seasonal employee for mosquito con trol to start addressing the mosquito problem immediately. To accept the lowest bid for re placing the heat pump at the Holmes County Jail for $3,000. To go to the next bid applicant for the Small County Rural Assistance Program grant received by the county for County Road 177 for the amount of $436,792.66, which Commissioner Ken neth Williams said was $34,000 less than the first bidders price. To interview all seven candidates for position of Public Works director before the meeting on May 13, with a vote of 4-1, with Williams voting no. Commissioners also discussed various ways of purchasing three new graders for the county with Commis sioner Bobby Sasnett pushing hard for a grader for his district because one of the two graders is broken. Af ter much discussion, no agreement was reached, no action was taken and the Board agreed to revisit the issue during their next meeting on Tuesday, May 13. ROADS from page A1 LEGACY from page A1

When people from other states think of Florida, they think of Miami or the Gold Coast. Talking to someone on the phone from Virginia the other day, she remarked, You have a Southern accent. Where are you from? Most people from Florida dont have a Southern accent. Several years ago, Gloria Jahoda, the wife of an FSU professor, discovered West Florida and was so intrigued with its difference from the Southern part of the state that she wrote a book called The Other Florida. An article in the most recent Florida Trend magazine showcased Palm Beach County, which is in direct contrast to our area which is known as the Panhandle but also known as a pioneer area or the last frontier because of its late development. Palm Beach County is one area of Florida weve never visited, although we have relatives there. (Find a place in Florida where the Wells family doesnt have relatives.) When I was growing up, my mother had an uncle who lived and raised his family in West Palm Beach. We always thought anybody who lived somewhere other than here was wealthier than we were. That wouldnt have taken much doing. They were clean, well dressed and the aunt talked proper. So I imagined them living in one of those beautiful homes you see pictures of in Palm Beach where railroad magnate the Henry Flagler family and the E.F. Hutton/Majorie Merriweather Post families have homes. The Kennedy estate is also there, along with other familiar names in the nancial world. I learned several things from the article. First, Palm Beach County, one of Floridas largest counties geographically, is divided into four sections. It contains 2,500 square miles, 500 of which is in Lake Okeechobee. The central part is home to Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, West Palm Beach and Manalapan. This area houses county government of ces and school board of ces as well as the South Florida Water Management District, which controls the critical ow of water from the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee. This area also houses the nancial of ces of many large corporations including Florida Crystals, the sugar-producing giant. The countys only stop on the All-Aboard-Florida high speed train will be in the central section of Palm Beach County when it goes into service next year. The south section was once thought to be mostly for retired people. This idea was promoted in the TV series Seinfeld, whose TV parents lived in Boca Raton, which was Floridas rst planned and developed cities. But its population now has a median age of 41.1 years. The technical industry is centered in the south section. The north section of the county is home to several colleges and universities and developed communities with numerous golf courses. Cities in this area include Riviera Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Singer Island, Jupiter and Tequesta. The western section is considered the countys breadbasket. You may be surprised as I was to know the scope of the agricultural interests in Palm Beach County. Fourhundred thousand acres, onethird of the countys land mass, is planted in sugar cane. Fresh sweet corn, rice, bell peppers, lettuce, radishes, Chinese vegetables, cucumbers and numerous nurseries add an additional $2 billion to the countys annual income. I did know that the best sweet corn comes from Belle Glade. In spite of this, Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee have always been the poorest areas with high crime and unemployment. Non-agricultural development is now beginning to bring a higher standard of living to this area. The focus of this article is that Palm Beach County is the perfect business climate for those looking for opportunities. I just found it interesting to know more about this place, which I had always thought of as moviestar glamorous, especially the extensive part agriculture plays in this diverse county. Some demographics: The population is expected to top 1.46 million by 2015. Whites make up 58.7 percent of the non-Hispanic population with Hispanics totaling 20.1 percent and blacks totaling 18.2 percent. The percent of the population over 25 with a high school education or higher is 87.2, and 32.9 percent have bachelor or higher degrees. Most of us are happy with our area and love the slower pace of our lives here. However, St. Joe Company has some long-range plans for the development of a large portion of its Bay and Walton County properties, which will certainly bring changes to our way of life in the next 50 years.

Ideally, we will all take a moment to think of sacri ces made by American service men and women to uphold the liberties we enjoy every day. North Korea, China and Libya are among more than 20 countries under dictatorships. Arguably, the list of those willing to put their lives on the line so the people of those countries may have the right to choose their leaders is considerably shorter than the list of those who have given their lives to protect that freedom for Americans. That thought begs the question: Why do we neglect our right to vote? Voter turnout for Vernons City Election last month was nothing short of apathetic, with only about 10 percent of those eligible to vote in the municipal election casting ballots. Ten percent. That means 90 percent essentially surrendered a precious right protected by our veterans who showed up for them on the battle elds, sacri cing their personal interests for the greater good of this nation and its people. True, Vernon, Chipley, Bonifay and our other local communities are small towns. But our right to vote is a liberty we must not take for granted. Sure, we know the arguments for not voting: What does my vote do, anyway? I dont like either candidate. I already know whos going to win, so why bother? Im so fed up with politicians that Im not giving anyone my support. Its no secret government and politics on all levels have left many of us with a sour taste, but if we dont speak up at the polls, were taking the power completely out of our hands and placing it in theirs. Lobbyists and special interest groups will certainly show up at the polls whether we do or not. We shouldnt let the discouragement and disillusionment many of us currently feel toward some leaders prevent us from making our voices heard at the ballot box. If the powers that be feel were not paying attention, theyre more likely to push their own agendas instead of the desires of the public. Washington and Holmes counties will see several candidates on the ballot for this years primary and general elections. Just as our mothers urged us to eat what was served for supper because children were starving in other countries, we should be grateful our plates are full of opportunities after which citizens of other nations hunger. Dont let our freedom go to waste. Lets get out and vote in every election no matter the appeal of what we nd offered on the plate. CAROL KENTEditor Most of us know someone who has battled depression. Many of us occasionally battle it ourselves. But depression isnt the main topic of this column; its just merely the setting for something so much bigger. Ive been blessed with an area of work that, at times, may show me the darkest side of humanity. But it also shows me humanity at its brightest. Depression is often described as a dark cloud that follows someone, with rare breaks and plenty of rainy days. Id like to tell you two stories of rain Ive encountered that have been followed with rainbows of hope that have touched my life in a profound way. It was rainy days that recently closed down roads and schools in both Washington and Holmes counties, rain that lasted for days. It wasnt until later we learned one of the places hit hardest was the Seacrest Wolf Preserve. The waters swelled the pond in the Arctic enclosure on one end, causing the dam to burst and sending water with such force down the middle that it ripped up the ground, carried off trees and debris and broke the fence on the other side. This is a place that runs off donations and hard work, and founder Cynthia Watkins, as anyone who has ever visited could see, views the animals as her family. Since 1999, shes built the preserve up, only to have almost all of it torn down in just one night. Watkins thought one wolf was lost under the mud and debris and another was stuck outside the gates. After years of trying to build understanding between people and the wolves, I could only imagine how much it hurt to have one of them killed. I cant say what the best call would have been, but I saw how she grieved, with so much sadness and anger that Ive only seen in parents whove lost their children. Through it all, Ive also seen the response of those who came to help rebuild. Ive seen the one they thought was lost returned. Ive seen the way she held the one surviving wolf cub of the one that was shot. She fawned over the cub with so much adoration and pride. I couldnt help but feel the hope for a brighter tomorrow. Holmes County lost an animal lover of its own last week with the sudden death of Wilfredo Morales, owner of Bens Place Animal Rescue in Bonifay. The resulting tragedy was a family without a loved one and so many animals without a guardian, but as I went and visited his family, I found the community was quick to respond, with local animal shelters taking in the animals and eventually all nding a place. I found that even though his widow, Julia, was mourning the death of her beloved husband and closing the shelter, she was also surrounded by family. They werent crying, but celebrating his life, sharing stories and pictures and planning to live out his memory so that Morales will live on in each of them. These are just two in the last couple of weeks where something has happened and yet people have endured and carried on and made the world a brighter place for it. I cant help but to be in awe. No matter how many times I see the kindness of our communities, it still overwhelms me. Seeing that strength and courage gives me encouragement to press on a little harder or let go of those things that tie me down but have no real meaning in my life, like petty disagreements and people who are just honestly having a bad day and struggling with something, too. I believe everyone has their rainclouds, but I also realize we may be the only sunshine they see that day. I encourage at least one smile when you dont feel like it, and if you go through a drive through window, try paying it forward, by paying for the order of the folks behind you. I know when I do it I call it getting my shine on, because it makes me feel so much better, and I hope it makes someones day, too. Thanks again for joining me, and I look forward to next week.Palm Beach County is an example of Floridas diversityHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Finding that silver lining SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERI enjoyed time spent with the lone survivor of the bloodline of Seacrest Wolf Preserves, Chaco.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, May 14, 2014Preserve founder protests wolfs euthanization by FWCBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Tragedy begot tragedy as Chaco, the wolf missing from the Seacrest Wolf Preserve since April 30, was put down by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission ofcers late on the evening of May 4. According to Stan Kirkland, FWC regional media ofcer, the commission received a call from preserve owner Cynthia Watkins on May 1, informing them one of their wolves had gone missing after ooding created a mudslide that ripped through the middle of the 15-acre preserve. Kirkland said they received a call May 2 reporting the wolf had been spotted near Wausau. Kirkland also said another report was made the following evening that Chaco was spotted back at the preserve; however, Watkins was unable to place a collar on him. By May 3, FWC ofcers still were unsuccessful in capturing Chaco with live traps baited with hamburger, venison and dog food, Kirkland said. Late on the evening of May 4, FWC ofcers received a call from the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce informing them an investigator spotted Chaco near Roulhac Middle School in Chipley. We responded with several people at sundown, and it was then they made the decision to euthanize the wolf, knowing that the children would be returning to school on Monday morning, Kirkland said. We were retrieving the carcass for Mrs. Watkins when we had to assist with another wolf who was trying to get back into the enclosure. We were able to get the wolf safely back into the enclosure without harm. The Seacrest Wolf Preserve is a Class 2 Facility and permitted for wolves, which are a Class 2 species. Kirkland said the facility is under investigation but would not disclose the nature of that investigation. Meanwhile, Watkins said she doesnt know why the preserve would be under investigation and called Sundays event a blatant act of murder. This tragedy of the killing of Chaco is totally unjustied and unconscionable, Watkins said. It could have been prevented if the proper agencies had worked with integrity and humane goals with the Seacrest owners. Were struggling hour by hour to keep the wolves fed while xing the enclosures. Were also shocked and devastated by the murder of Chaco by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. They lied to us. Knowing he was headed toward Chipley, they told us he was seen coming back to the preserve (in the opposite direction) and that we should put out bait to lure him back in. Watkins said someone living on Pioneer Road spotted the wolf and wanted to call the preserve. Because he couldnt nd the number, he contacted both the WCSO and the FWC for the preserves contact information. According to Watkins account of the mans story, both agencies told him they didnt have the preserves contact information. They murdered him intentionally, telling us to come back to the preserve to bait him back in knowing he was headed north, Watkins said. They refused to catch him humanely and lied, saying they had a live trap borrowed from the Red Wolf Preserve. When we got him back, we could clearly see it was a textbook kill, right through the heart, which means he was standing still when they took the shot and not running away like they said he was. Watkins also said the preserve has been receiving calls from across the nation from outraged wolf enthusiasts and wildlife conservationists. Id like to share the incidents FWC case number, FWNW140FF4545, for anyone else interested in taking a stand, Watkins said. Watkins said there is a positive note to the story, however. Forrest, the wolf previously thought to be left dead by the mudslide, was the wolf that re-entered the preserve. Forrest was reported to be visibly thinner from hunger but is expected to make a full recovery. Watkins said the facility is still in desperate need of donations, including manpower, supplies and monetary donations, because of the thousands of dollars in damage caused by the mudslide. Volunteers from all around have been working day and night to repair the damage, which is estimated to be around $50,000. Watkins stressed the preserve is relying on the generosity and compassion of volunteers to donate time, manpower, supplies and money to the cause. We will still be open for tours on Saturday, Watkins said. Weve repaired the visiting area, and our ambassadors are up for visitors. Because we are completely nonprot, this is the only way we will be able to raise the money needed to repair the damage: through donations and tours. In addition to monetary donations, the preserve is in need of fencing and laborers. Materials needed include fencing measuring about 10 feet tall; 11 gauge fencing, which is the strongest gauge of fence; fencing posts; claps; wire; logs; rocks; dirt; and concrete. Labor volunteers should be adapted to heavy labor because there are rocks and debris that need to be moved and removed.

BATTLE OF THE BADGESBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BO O N IFA FA Y Harris III, Master Illusionist, was the rst guest during the May 7 meeting of the Bonifay Kiwanis Club. Ive devoted my life to exposing deceptions, Harris said. Its crazy, all these mixed messages trying to convince us of what life is all about. On average, a person takes in 4,000 to 5,000 messages a day, from advertising on television, billboards and other media people arent even aware of, he said. We now take on so much more media inuence than ever before, and not just on our televisions; thousands of messages a day, consciously and unconsciously selling us lies, telling us to just drive this, buy this, wear this, just do this and it will give you life, Harris said. Its crazy because a commercial will say, Buy this because after all, you deserve it, and then a few seconds go by, and the next commercial will say, I know that those other guys said you deserve it, but lets face it; youre just not enough. You are not thin enough, beautiful enough, strong enough, smart enough; youre just not enough, but if you bought this, then you would be enough, Before we know it, we settle for believing an illusion, a fake version of the life we were meant to live. It is so easy to be deceived. He said when he was a kid, he wanted a baseball mitt for his birthday, and instead, he got a magic kit, and he became good enough as a teenager to take his act on the road, making large sums of money but missing something essential. Its funny that magic really did change my life, he said. When I was 20 years old traveling the world doing magic shows, making friends and making money and everything I wanted, no matter how much I did or how much I had, I still felt totally empty, so I ended up going on this search for the truth because deep down, I felt like Ive been lied to by the world, and in reality I had been the magician, the illusionist, the expert in deception that I was had been cleverly deceived into settling for an illusion, and I remembered the principles of deception are universal, and its like a light went off, and all I could think was that I was going to use my illusions to tell others the truth about lies. Im on a mission to tell the truth about deception. Consider this your invitation to join me. Harris now dedicates his time and efforts to nonprot organizations to help promote their messages. For example, he assisted the Holmes County Health Departments Tobacco Free Holmes and SWAT club of Chipley High School to promote a tobacco-free lifestyle with a free magic show at Chipley High School recently.

SPORTs S www.bonifaynow.com ASectionThis space hasnt always been kind to ESPN or the NFL. But for one weekend a year a cease-re is merited. Televising the NFL Draft was the smartest thing either company accomplished since Australian Rules Football went to the TV vault alongside My Mother the Car and the NFL moved the goal posts to the back line of the end zone. Tuning in to Jon Gruden and company is like listening to a TV weatherman tell us what to expect, and nding out 10 minutes later he doesnt know any more about his area of expertise than the rest of us. What can be as refreshing as that? To be sure, the NFL Draft is resplendent with more lame interviews than a seminar on sideline reporting, only this time at least they are conducted with relieved athletes about to become millionaires. Its also a kumbaya convention, has more faux hugs than a beauty pageant and the last time Chris Berman was relevant Blondie was recording No. 1 hits. But if youre a Cleveland Browns fan, you witnessed more drama in less than 2 hours on Thursday night than you saw all last football season. Weve become a culture held hostage by speculation, but for one night a year it ends in resolution within minutes. So much for the mock drafts that ood the Internet starting in March. Theyre as compelling as an Anthony Weiner campaign for dogcatcher. While there was some pleasure watching Johnny Manziel drink water like it was bathtub gin while waiting for his name to be called, the bottom line is that hes soon to sign a contract worth more money than the combined wages of all Minnesota McCanns for eternity. Its also somewhat noteworthy that its common to hear athletes speak of Gods plan in times of crisis. Ive never heard a coach talk about Gods plan upon being hired, but Ive witnessed a few echo that sentiment when red. Perhaps the best moment for many local viewers, however, irrespective of team allegiance, came when Calvin Pryor was taken on the 18th pick by the New York Jets. The Port St. Joe graduate grew up and ourished in our area. That he will have an opportunity to live the good life that professional sports can provide enriches all of us who have followed his career from high school through Louisville. That occurrence was heightened on Friday evening, when Khyri Thornton, who played at Bay High School, went to the Green Bay Packers in the third round. Then there are many college football fans who track the progress of players from their favorite university. That provides a sidelight for those who dont actively follow the NFL. But maybe the best reward from this years collection of talent was that the second round on Friday produced nearly as representative group of future pros as was seen on Thursday night. Not all drafts are created equal. Neither are all television extravaganzas. Tolearnhowyoucansupportour communitysuniversity,contact MaryBethLovingoodat(850)770-2108 ormblovingood@pc.fsu.edu.

It hasnt been coming from Bucks head coach Jeff Patton or the baseball team. At press time, Chipley was set to play at Bozeman at 7 p.m. Tuesday night in the Region 2-1A champi onship game. If Bozeman wins, it would be a third straight region title for the Bucks program. But Chipley plans on stop ping that from happening. The Bucks are 20-7 and the Tigers 21-7, but perhaps more importantly, Chipley is 16-1 at home. Weve built a real good following this season, Ti gers coach Andy Compton said. Its taken awhile. Weve struggled the last few years we were in a district with (Pensacola) Catholic and Bay in a four-year span. This year our fan base really has supported this group. Our guys are condent at home, thats been the fun part about it. I think the home eld does play a little bit into it, but at this point in time when the game starts Im sure both teams will compete very well. Neither Patton nor Compton wanted to tip his hand on a starting pitcher. Patton named Brandon Suttles and Alec Aleywine as possibles. Compton des ignated Jordan Finch or Daniel Floyd. While the schools havent played in recent seasons, the programs have met dur ing summer baseball and its clear that the coaches have a mutual respect for the opposition. They have good pitch ing, have some guys who throw with some velocity and Coach Compton does a good job, Patton said. Whereas Aleywine (.417) and Suttles (.395) have been formidable throughout, Pat ton now has Webb (.323), Nicky Agosto and Thomp son at .301 and Priester at .288, the latter with an RBI surge starting with the dis trict tournament. Special to Times-AdvertiserPENSACOLA The Chipola Lady Indians won two and lost two to nish third in the Gulf District bracket of the FCSAA State tournament.

Typically deemed the Orange and Blue game, play will be replaced with a scrimmage of offense against defense. With the implementation of an entirely new offense that features a totally new concept for the Jackets, coaches will utilize this night to evaluate how far along the new scheme has progressed. The game will also feature the Vernon Quarterback Club baby back rib sale. Rib slabs can be purchased at the game for $20 beginning at 5 p.m. until the completion of the game. The Jackets will then turn their focus to the spring game next Thurs day night, May 22, at home against Freeport High School. Game time is 6 p.m. due to being held on a school night. The format will be a complete game with the exception of no live kicking. This will be the rst time to see a much im proved and more experi enced Yellow Jacket team that hopes to ride last years success and this years returning experience to a deeper playoff run, says Head Coach Bobby Johns. This years team returns 10 offensive starters and 8 defensive. Along with those returners, several young players from last years squad have really improved and will look to make a huge contribution to this years success. Hopefully, with the maturing of many of last years key contributors, the 2014 installment of the Vernon Yellow Jackets will make this one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory. Among those returning is Austin Brown. Brown has received ten Division 1 scholarship offers so far from the likes of the Univer sity of Wisconsin, Univer sity of South Florida, and Southern Mississippi. Please join us in Ver non this Thursday at 6:30 for the scrimmage, urges Johns. And we need ev eryone at the Jackets Nest next Thursday night as the Jackets face Freeport as well.

LocalA8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, May 14, 2014By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Hundreds of motorcyclists made Bonifay one of their pit stops as they made their way across America on May 9 for the 20th anniversary Kyle Petty Ride Across America. Visitors included NASCARs Kyle Petty, Geoff Bodine, Harry Grant, NFLs Herschel Walker and FOX News Col. Allen West. Twenty years ago, Petty and three friends rode their motorcycles from North Carolina to a NASCAR race at Phoenix International Raceway. Along the way, several friends joined the ride until the group was more than 30 riders, and the turnout inspired Petty to turn the event into a charity ride to raise money for a cause. In 2004, the Petty family wanted their ride to focus on Victory Junction, located on 84 acres in Randleman, N.C., for enriching the lives of children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses in honor of their late son, Adam Petty. This year, Kyle Petty will lead approximately 200 riders coast to coast for the rst time, traveling from Carlsbad, Calif., to Daytona Beach from May 3-10, and as a result of the charity ride, more than 7,730 children have attended Victory Junction at no cost to their families. Fans and spectators have gathered along the Charity Ride route also contribute to the Charity Rides Small Change. Big Impact. program, which accepts donations at local stops.

Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they cleanup are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terric mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none have dirty hands from cleaning up messes. I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions: Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. Politicians ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately... without delay. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is they never stop until the work is nished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. It would be benecial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or ve kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrice himself to benet other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. DrDR. JAmMES L. SNyYDErR Out to PastorWhy mothers would make good politicians Faith EVENTS
