A HEfRT FOR THE FRWM
Life experience in the resume
of new county 4,H leader
BY DEBORAH BUCKHALTER
'.-. dbuckhalter@jcfloridzn coom
Jackson County has a new 4-H
coordinator, and she's eager to
build the volunteer base as she
takes the helrn.
But Angel 'Clark Granger's first
order of business is to assist as
much as she can with two big
projects that were well into
the planning stages when she
started work earlier this month;
one is an upcoming event for
4-H/FFA youngsters and one is
an adventure for first-graders
across the county.
Ag Adventures for first graders
will be held Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 at
the Jackson County Agriculture
Office Complex on Penn Av-
enue. The youngsters will have
an opportunityto visit vegetable
gardens growing on.the grounds
there in this hands-on experi-
ence. It's meant,,to teach them
more about where food comes
From and how it gets from the.
field to their dinner tables.
And last Thursday afternoon,
Granger was busy helping with
the animal blood test and tag-
ging duties associated with this
year's Panhandle bYouth E'xpo.
Set for Oct. 22-24, the event
showcases animals cared for by
S4-H and FFA members as well as
exhibits that illustrate the young

Thanks, Dr. Hoff
"arianna has been home for Dr. Robert Hoff
since he began practicing medicine as a fami-
ly practice physician here almost 40 years ago.
He has provided a great service to the community dur-
ing his medical career, having chosen Jackson County
Over a job in Orlando to meet a shortage of medical
professionals in rural northwest Florida at the time.
Now, a decade into retirement, Dr. Hoff is contribut-
ing to the community again, and in a big way: Dr. Hoff
is donating the Marianna Fitness Center he's operated
since the mid-1980s to Jackson Hospital, which will
use thle facility as part of its rehabilitation services. The
facility features exercise equipment and programs,
physical therapy and aqua therapy in' a heated pool. Its
value exceeds $1 million.
Dr. Hoff's donation honors,the hospital, largely for its
treatment of Hoff's wife, Hazel, whose care at Jackson
Hospital Hoff credits with her extended survival after
being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011.
It's a fitting tribute from one medical professional to
a professional medical facility, and we appreciate Dr.
Hoff's generosity. The entire community will benefit
from his largesse.

Virtual campus i
he University of Florida plans to boost its enroll-
ment by about 50 percent over the next decade
- with a major caveat. .
The expected 24,152 additional students are going to
be on a virtual campus, not in Gainesville.
UF has offered online degree programs for years,
mainly on the graduate level. Its new effort,.called UF
Online, is different in that it will provide completely
online undergraduate degree programs aimed at at-
tracting freshmen as well as the more typical transfer
IState lawmakers authorized the effort and-provided
initial funding this past session, mandating that its in-
state students pay 75 percent or less of the tuition paid
by their on-campus counterparts,...'
UF Onlin'e should attract a different cohort of stu-
dents than the on-cahipus university. Their average
age isexpected to be 25, including those with jobs and
other. obligations that keep them from campus,.
.Expanding access to the university at a reasonable
price is'a good thing. But there's also a risk of losing the
in-person interactions that help students broaden their
perspectives arid make connections.
In his latest State of the University address, UF Presi-
dent Bernie Machen gave examples of students in the
university's online programs,...
UF officials say they're developing ways to create an .
online sense.of community for students in the online
program. They're also considering "Gator Dens" in
some ofthe-state's major cities where thpse students
could meet and see advisers.
Another concern is that UF Online might become
the go-to option for students of modest means, risking
making the main campus a place just for students from
wealthy backgrounds. UF must maintain diversity in all
It also needs to maintain quality. The university
doesn't have to pay for on-campus infrastructure and
gets other savings with online students, but it can't ,
,. expect to ramp up enrollment.so significantly without
adding faculty and making other investments. -.
UF Online offers great promise for the university to'.
raise revenue and take a leading role in the growing
field of online educadion.But pF and other universi-
ties in that field also must ensure that they're nhot losing
their best qualities in the process. .

Historian:Partisan gridlock is race-based
Fall is the season of books and
provocative ideas, and author
Taylor Branch has no shortage
The Pulitzer Prize-winning
historian hopes to keep educators
interested in teaching about the
civil rights era with the publication
of "The King Years," a short version
ofhis much-acclaimed trilogy on
the life oflMartin Luther King Jr.
and the civil rights movement.
SOn Sept. 21, he challenged his
audience under a big tent at the
National Book Festival in Wash-
ington with an idea he said is
both dangerous and delicate. He'd
sprung it last mqnth on Gwen Ifill
when she interviewed him for the
PBS NewsHour. Intrigued, Ifill"
broached the idea when she and
JudyWoodruff interviewed Presi-
dent Barack Obama a day later.
Obama ','danced all around it,"
Branch said. '
Here it is: Obama is the victim of
.partisan racial gridlock..
Everyone agrees that Congress
is dysfunctional and that the tea
party hasput sand in the gears of
Washington. But is it unfair to as-
cribe race as a motivator of partisan
Even practiced interviewers like
Ifill and veteran interviewees like
Obama get hives using the words
race and racial. Ifill held the ques-
tion:untillast, and she used many
,wo I:rds asldhg it. She asked the
.. presidentif he agreed with the his-
torian "and; if soq, what;, if anything,
dent can do to break through that
kind ofmotivated gridlock."
The last thing Obama- wants is to
suggest that he considers himself
.a victim of racism. He went on for
647 words, and basically Obama
said no, he doesn't think partisan
But he did offer context to grid-
lock. Since the 1960s, Obama said,
peoplehave fought government,
efforts to help mi iorities and the
poor as being bad for the economy,
and that has led to thinking of
government as the problem instead
of the" solution. That in turn led
to criticism that "pointy-headed.
bureaucrats in Washington are just.
tryingto help out minorities or try-
* ing to give them something free."
Obama is thinking 6f the racism
of George Wallace even if he's not
talking about it.
In early 1963, Alabama's gover-
nor declared, "Segregation today,
segregation tomorrow, segrega-
tion forever." As Branch tells it, the
March on Washington and other
events convinced Wallace that '
talk of segregation and race were
unacceptable, and Wallace never
mentioned them again:.
launched a.presidential bid with
a speech that turned his scorn
to "pointy-headed bureaucrats,"
tyrannical judges and "tax, tax,
I thought of Branch's question
in connection with comments of
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, about Jesse
,"We need a hundred more like
SJesse Helms in the U.S. Senate,"
Cruz declared Sept. 11 at the Heri-
tage Foundation, a conservative
think tank in Washington.
Cruz said that he sent his very
first political.contribution $10
to Helms because critics were
"beating up on him." Helms's "will-
-ingness to.say all those crazy things
is a rare,rare characteristic," Cruz
said admiringlyv. ,
Cruz was 19 'in. 1990 when Helms
ran a chilling campaign ad against
Harvey Gantt; Charlotte's black
mayor. The ad showed a white
man's hands crumpling up ajob-
* rejection letter. "You needed that
job and you were the best quali-
fied, but they had to give it to a
minority because of a racial quota,"
the voiceover said. Helms won his
re-election bid. ,
In the 21st century, Aierica '
needs to move forward, not back.
We can't afford to listen to rhetoric
from the bad old days, whether we
call it racially tinged or racist.

The dying art of putting pen to paper
NORTH CONWAY, N.H. '
: ver the years the residents
: of this town tucked into
a shoulder ofthe.White
-Mountains have filled tie pages of
Sthe local newspaper with heated
comments aboutzoning, a bypass
highway, a new schooland who de-
Sserves to win the New Hampshire
But few issues have prompted
such passionate commentary in
The Conu'a), Daily Sun as the ques-
tioi of whether haihdwriting should
be taught in the local schools. One
day the paper carried 43 opin-
ions on the topic. Most of them
screamed: Of course they should.
That includes the reader who said it
wouldn't make any difference, add-
ing: "They. can't spell anyway."
Maybe they can't,,but the school-
children 9fthis community and
of-thousands of others scattered
around the country aren't being

almost always listed second in the
ancient catechism on the function
of schools. Not that the other two
.-reading arid 'rithmetic are be-
ing mastered by our young scholars
either, but that's for another day ,
and another column.
We have in our time witnessed
the shrinking role of the handwrit-
teniword. We no longer sign for
gasoline at self-service pumps and
we write emails on a keyboard. The
letter is as dead as a form of cor-
respondence as the gavotte is as a
form of dance. The other day I saw
someone take out an $85,000 loan
with an electronic signature.
There are loads of romantic
reasons for the perpetuation of the
handwritten word, and I'm speak-
ing about more than love notes.
(In an age of LOL, does anyone still
know what SWAK means? Ask your
mom. She will.)
There is real intimacy involved in
a handwritten thank-you note, so
much more personal than an email,
which we all know is often dashed
off in a few seconds without even
the courtesy of pushing the shift
button to employ capital letters at
the beginning of the sentence. It is
heresy, and very bad manners.
S National Perspective
There is emotion that can be.
loaded onto anything written in
cursive, impossible to describe but
Impossible to miss.-And there is.the'
utility of picking up a pencil and
writing down a phone number or a
personal note on a piece of paper
and then tucking it into your breast
pocket, where there is at least a 50
. percent chance you will retrieve it
before it goes into the washing ma-
chine and leaches all over your best
dress shirt in the increasingly
unlikely event you still wear a dress
shirt. Don't get me started.
SAll of that is without considering
that four of the most important
documefits in American history
were written in forms that resemble
Script: the Declaration of Indepen-
dence, the Constitution, the Get-
tysburg Address ... and the Laffer
Curve that launched the supply-
side revolution. Take away the pen

Today almost every state has
endorsed the so-called Common

modern way of tackling a running

than the old-fashioned way of
writing out a pass for going to the
That means there will be fewer
concussions, which is a good thing,
but also fewer billets-doux, which is
a bad thing, and my point is sealed
by the fact that hardly any readers
of this column will have the remot-
est idea what a billet-doux is and
even fewer have ever received one.

But the rationale for teaching cur-
give goes beyond the romantic.
"Writing in cursive is more than
making letters," says Paula Hein-
richer, who has taught handwriting
for eight years in southwestern
Pennsylvania through the Hand-
writing Without Tears program. "It's
putting letters into words andthen.
into sentences. It's not copying. It's

through the second grade how to :
print, and next year pupils from the
'third through the sixth grades will
be introduced to cursive. "It's still a
basic skill," says Amanda Hartle of
the North Hills School District, "and
has an effect on all the other parts
of students' educations."'
At least the president still signs
bills with a pen. Barack Obama
signed the health care law that
bears his name with a pen. His
rivals on Capitol Hill are living for
the day one of his successors might
employ a pen to sign legislation
So maybe there's a (ball-) point to
this column after all: the identifica-
tion of one element in American
life worthy of bipartisan support.
Let's end the Washington stale-
mate by uniting to save cursive. A
nation's sense of itself depends on
it. But if you want to start a petition,
please require the signatures to be

Sdon his share. Granger was
able to buy a big chunk of
it when he gave the family
first right of refusal. The 55-
acre purchase helped keep
the roughly 200 a6res of the
land in family; hands, and
the property has all now
been designated a Cen-
tury Farm Family parcel
because of that continuous
100 years'of family own'er-
ship. She and her husband
share their corner of the
home place in west Gads-
den County .with a wide
variety of critters and she
does all the veterinary du-
ties related to her herd of
20 brood cows and a bull.
She helps neighbors with
those needs as well.'
Granger is proud of that
fact, and proud, too, that
she is at last moving into a
profession that will allow
her to help other farm-lov-
ing young people appreci-
ate and perhaps make their
living from the land as they
grow into adulthood.
She looks back, on her
youth and realizes that
her own beloved father
lived under stresses that he
might have avoided if he
had been willing to change
from the old way of doing
certain things in favor of'
emerging knowledge that
would have led to a'more
efficient operation. He
died a poor farmer, set in
his father's ways, he said. ,
Going forward in her new
career, Granger is making it
her'business to ensure that
the county has as many 4-
H participants as possible
and as many volunteers
to help them as she can
possibly recruit. She'll be
hitting up the Cattleman's
Association, the Cham-
ber of Commerce and any
.other group she can find
with potential for new
volunteers. She was a 4-H
volunteer while her boys
were growing up, notch-
ing 13 years as an unpaid
helper, and knows it can
.be a rewarding pursuit. She
wants her 4-H program to
be a top smtudent-feeder for
related, degree programs
and thinks volunteers with
farm know-how can help
her make that happen.
All her adult life, Granger
had longed for a college
degree herself. She finally
enrolled in college a few
years ago, taking a full load

full-time. She finished with
a Bachelor of Science de-
gree in agriculture with an
animal science emphasis.
It shares a place of honor in
her life as an accomplish-
ment, right along with the
GED which reminds, her of
She wants to help the
next generation learn all
they need to know about
successful farming so
that no other will have
to make, the sacrifice she
did in 1979. She's proud
of the fact that her own
two sons have earned col-
lege degrees, both of them
related to some extent to
natural resources like land
and water. Quitting school
herself is not something
she regrets doing under the
circumstances her fam-
ily faced, she said, but it's a
step she doesn't want to'see
other have to take for the
sake of their-landL Helping
continue iand growv a vital
4-H program, she believes,
is one way of doing her part
to help them avoid having
to make that choice'or give
up the farm altogether.
SHer new job, she said, is'
more than a way to earn a
paycheck; it's a calling that
she. has at last answered.
She got the job after a two-
year search for work in the,
industry while continuing
in her old job. With only'
one call during that time
for an ag-related job offer
- and that at minimum
wage she was begin-
ning to think she was un-
marketable because of her
age. When officials 'called
about the Jackson County
opening, she leapt at the
chance. As. part, of her job
interview, she had to give
a 4-H related presentation
to a committee of three key
agency officials. Her life
experience, her research
and her plan of action as it
related to what she knows,
of Jackson County helped
her land the job. She
worked her last day with-
the Department of State on
Sept. 12, saying her good-
byes and leaving there at 5
p.m. that day. She reported
to work in Jackson County
at 7 a.m. the next morning.
Aside from, all it means
to her spirit, there's some-
thing else Granger loves
about her new job. When
she worked, for the Depart-
ment of State, she went
through 42 traffic lights
and daily road congestion
to get to her job. When she
heads to Jackson County
from the Juniper commu-
nity just off Interstate'10
in Gadsden County, she
doesn't hit a single light on
the way to work.

Tigers explode for 48-14 win over Bulldogs
BY DUSTIN KENT
GRACEVILLE After suffering
through four consecutive losses
to Freeport over the past two
seasons, it was Graceville's turn
to torture the Bulldogs on Friday
night, as they rolled to a 48-14
victory to improve to 3-2 on the
The Tigers got big nights from
Jared Padgeti and Preston Nich-
ols, with Nichols tossing two
touchdown passes and Padgett
rushing for 195 yards and three
TDs while catching a touchdown
and adding an interception on
It was a second straight domi-
nant victory for the Tigers, who
also put up 48 points in a shutout
win over Wewahitchka last week.
"We prepared real hard for this
game," Graceville coach iy Wise
said Friday night. "Freeport does
a lot of things that can hurt you if
you're not prepared to face them,
but for the most part I thought
our defense was outstanding. Of-
fensively we started out slow, but
we got it going andfoundaway to
get some points."
Graceville scored on its open-
ing possession of the game on a
38-yard TD burst by Padgett, who
then picked off Freeport quarter-
back Dillon Bates on the Bulldogs'
first play from scrimmage.
But the Tigers were able to do
anything with the turnover and
came up enmpty on their next
It was the GHS defense that fi-
nally provided the spark midway
through the second quarter when
Jarrett Brogdon recovered a Free-
port fumble and returned to 20
yards for a score to make it 14-0.
After another Bulldogs turnover,
the Tigers cashed in four plays lat-
er when Nichols. hit Padgett over
the middle for a 10-yard touch-

Panthers defeat Pirates; continue strong start to season
The West Gadsdeni Panthers continued
their strong start to the 2013 season with a
31-21'road victory over the Sneads Pirates on
Friday night, moving to 4-1 on the season.
The Panthers jumped out to the early lead,
going up 14-7 after one quarter before tack-
ing on another score in the second period to
make it a 14-point margin.
Sneads got a score back to make it 21-1'4at
halftime and then tied it up with a score 1:40
into the second half.
But West Gadsden responded with a go-
ahead touchdown with 6:20 left in the third
and tacked on a field goal midway through
the fourth to pull away.
Despite the loss, which dropped the Pirates
to 1-3 on the year, Sneads coachBill Thomas
said that he couldn't have been happier with
the effort his players gave him.
"They playedtheirhearts out. I'm so proud
of our kids. They played great," he said.
"West Gadsden is a great football team. If
we had played like we did last week (a 30.-
20 loss to Cortondale) we would've gotten

ball 34 times for 250 yards and three iouch-

absence of fellow back Javarris Goodson,
who was out with injury.
"Our offensive line played great, but poor
Antwan had to run it so much that he had
nothing left by the fourth quarter," Thomas
said. "It was just a hard-fought football game.
Their kids played good and ours played good.
It was very physical; just a great game."

Lady Hornets' win streak snapped
BY DUSTIN KENT
The Cottondale Lady
Hornets had their three-
match winning streak
snapped Thursday night
in Altha, falling to the
Lady Wildcats in four sets
by scores of 26-24, 24-26,
11-25, and 15-25.
The Lady Hornets were
coming off of wins over
and Wewahitchka, and it
appeared they might be
on their way to a fourth
straight win after tak-
ing the opening set over
.But the Lady Wildcats
won a hard-fought second
set and then took control
from that point on.
"'We did pretty well for
the first set and started
makiniig some mental mis-
takes,'," Cottondale coach
Tara Jurgonski said. "The
girls just made a lot of er-
rors and we kind of beat
ourselves for the most
part. We were fighting
hard in the second set. We
wanted it and should've
won that one. I think if we
would've won that one,
the momentum would've
stayed up. But we didn't
and I think they were tired
from playing so hard those
first two games."
Sue Ellen Mosier had 25
assists on the night to lead
the Lady Hornets, with
Cheyanne Franklin add-
ing five kills, and Kourtnie
Richardson seven digs. ,
Jakeerina Borders had tro
ace serves, while Wendy
Singleton had two digs.
With the loss, Cotton-
dale fell to 5-9 overall and
2-5 in district play.

Dear Annie: I have been married to
"George" for 11 years. In the past two,
George and I have had sex only three
times. Lately, when I go to kiss him, he
I have asked George if there is some-
one else or if he has a medical issue, but
he denies both. I've been told I am quite
attractive, but he seems interested only
in the financial stability I provide. I am
so frustrated. The only thing keeping me
here is that I am taking classes at a local
college and am 'close to finishing.
I would like to save my marriage, but
can't do it by myself. Am I wasting my
time? I don't get the impression that
George even likes me, let alone loves me.
NEED AN OUTSIDER'S INSIGHT
Dear Need: If George thinks he has a
medical problem, he should he willing to
see a doctor and you should encour-
age him to do so. If he were having an af-
fair, or if he were gay, however, he might
not tell you. Get some counseling and
figure out whether it is worth staying in
this loveless marriage.
'Dear Annie: My sister is getting married
next spring. My husband and I are ex-
cited for her, but we live in the Midwest,
and they are getting married in Hawaii.
My husband and I don't make much
money. We've been saving for .three years
to go to Hawaii on our anniversary in
January. We would preferto go on our
own vacation rather than deplete our

and she has no right to dictate how

mouthing us to our friends and family.
Am I wrong not to spend our money for
FRUSTRATED WITH FINANCES
SDear Frustrated: We wMll admit that
your sister sounds like a selfish spoiled
brat, but we also believe one should
make every effort to attend major
family events. You already have the
money saved up to go to Hawaii. Why
not combine yourvacation with her
wedding? After the rest of the guests go
home (or before they arrive), you and
Your husband can enjoy the trip you
planned, even if it is not on the exact
dayyou wanted. This is what family
members do when they love each other
(al] though your sister certainly doesn't
make it easy). ,
Dear Annie: I read-the letter from
"Suffering Soon-to-Be Ex," whose wife
left him after he made the incredible
blunder ofsaying he wished he'd found
his wife's sister first.

huge mistake during a business confer-
ence call. The very next day, he wrote on

Competed to three hearts with four-

Female interest in hunting growing rapidly
BY UUSIIN IlNI
The impending arrival of the
fall hunting season means it's
time for local hunters to be-
gin loading up on supplies and
gear, looking for the newest
equipment, and boning up on
the latest rules and regulations.
While the most avid -of this
group have. traditionally been
men, it seems more and more of
these materials are being gath-
ered by hunters of the female
Jeff Kimbrel, who is the gen-
eral manager of McCoy's Gun
& Archery Shop in Marianna,
said that he has seen a boom
in female interest for hunting
recently, with women now ac-
counting for roughly 30 percent
of the shop's total business.
"The fastest-growing segment
of this business in crossbows,
and we've had women buying
and using crossbows now more
than ever," he said. "It's really
unprecedented. It's a really fast-
growing demo. Women feel just
as comfortable hunting with
crossbows now as men do."
Kimbrel suggested that the
increasing volume of hunting-
themed shows on television
has played a part in generating
increased interest in the out-
doors among women, as well
as a growing amount of hunting
products aimed specifically to-

Miranda Smith lines up on a practice target at McCoy's Archery Shop Thursday.
, For 29-year-old Altha resident
Miranda Smith, who tookup
bow hunting last year at the urg-
ing of her husband Casey, the
appeal is as much about the so-
cial aspects as anything else.
"My husband kept trying to get
me into it and I wasn't interest-
ect," she said. "He would do it all.
the timeandI would nieverhunt..
but now I can do it with him and
it's something we.can do togeth-
er. I just fell in love with it. Now
I do it more than him. I would
hunt all day if I could."
She said she practices her aim
with the whole family, including
her vtwo kids, ages 6 and 8.
"We all get out in'the yard to-
gethier and shoot and the kids
love it. They love watching me
shoot. They really get into it,"
Smith said. "It's great family
Smith has become so enam-
ored with the sport that she's
traveling with her husband this
year all the way to Hoxie, Kan-
sas for a bow hunt in which she
plans to prove to all in atten-
dance just how far she has come
as a bow hunter.
"We go places (to hunt) some-
times with a lot of guys and the
hunters don't takeme seriously,"
she said. "But I'm determined to
walk out of there with a buck."
Kimbrel said that the business
side of the hunting industry has
responded to the. growing fe-
male interest in the 'sport and
are producing more pink bows
and pink camouflage gear than
ever before, which Smith con-
firmed was very appealing to
"They've got a lot of pretty
stuff for women now. No wom-
an wants a plain bow," she said.
"I bought my first bow last year
and I upgraded this year. It's
faster, more accurate, and a lot
Apparently the upgrade in
the quality of her bow has been
matched ,by an upgrade in her
aim, within Smith saying she re-
cently 'Robin-Hooded' for the
first time, the term used to de-
scribe when an archer shoots an
arrow directly into a previous
"I was shooting with about 20
guys and I was the only woman
and they all said I was the best
shot," she said. "That made me
feel pretty good."

ting zones C arid D has been
modified slightly this year,
still so, please make sure you
know which zone you're
hunting in. The line still
begins ,at U.S. 27 at the
(Gadsden. County) Flori-
da-Georgia state line and
runs south on U.S. 27 un-
til it meets S.R. 61 in Tal-
lahassee. From there, it
follows S.R. 61, running
south until it hits U.S. 319.
There, the line follows U.S.
319, continuing south to
U.S. 98; it then' runs east
along U.S. 98. And here is
the part that changed. The
line used to turn south
*on Spring Creek Highway,
but now it continues east
along U.S. 98 until it gets
to theWakulla River, where
the river becomes the line,
heading south until it
meets the St. Marks River
and continues downriver
until it meets the Gulf.
If you hunt west of that
line,- you're in ,Zone D,.
where archery and cross-
bow seasons begin Oct. 26
on private lands. In Zone
C, archery and crossbow
seasons open on Sept. 14.
To hunt during archery,
season, you'll need a Flor-
ida hunting license and
an archery permit. During
crossbow season, you'll
need a hunting' license
ahd crossbow permit. If
you're a Florida resident,
an annual hunting license
will cost $17. Nonresidents
have the choice of paying
$46.50 for a 10-day license
or $151.50 for 12 months.
Archery and crossbow
permits cost just $5 each,
and all deer huntersmust
have the $5 deer permit.
Anyone planning on hunt-
ing one of Florida's many
WMAs must purchase a
management area permit
for $26.50. ..
And don't 'forget to pick
up the WMA brochure for
the area you wish to hunt,
because hunting season
dates on many of the areas
are often different from
what the zonal dates are.
You can pick up a copy of
these WMA brochures at
your local tax collector's
office or read them at My-
During archery season
and that part of crossbow
season that is concurrent
with archery, you can take
deer of either sex, regard-
less of antler size (except
for spotted fawns). After
archery ends, during the
remaining portion of the
crossbow season, only le-
gal bucks (having at least
one antler that is at least 5
inches long) maV be taken.
The daily bag limit on deer
is two. Bag limits' for deer
on WMAs can differ, so
check the specifics of the:
area before you hunt.

Bream fishing is slow, but
.Catfish are hit-and-miss,
but a few may b6 caught
with worms off the'river
LAKE EUFAULA: Bass are
fair to good. Look to creek
structure early in the day,
working the visible cover
near the banks with buzz-
baits, jerkbaits, and other
topwater offerings,. Fish
may also be located along
creek ledges where worms
and deep-running crank-
baits may pay off. On the
main lake, fish Carolina-
rigs, crankbaits, and slow-
rolled spinnerbaits over
the deep ledges. Try worms
and crankbaits around
points and sandbars.
Crappie fishing is fair in
the creeks, especially early
in the day. Night fishing is a
pretty good option for an-
glers fishing near bridges.
Minnows fished vertically
are the best bet.
A good mans' small
bream may be caught on
crickets at present. ,
Hybrids are.slow and cat-
fish will bite worms on the
flats late in the afternoon.
TAHOOCHEE RIVER: Catfish
are good. Use live earth-
worms to catch them along
bluff walls where currents
are not too strong. Anchor
or tie off and fish straight
down. Also try them on
points and sandbars late
in the afternoon. Tailwater
cats are slow to bite right
now, but the fish are larger
thanthose in the bluff-wall
and sandbar locations.
.For bream, either drift-
fish along the banks in the
main river with crickets or
go up the creeks .and fish
worms on the bottom. A

ate-size shellcrackers have
come from the creekswith
a few catfish mixed in.
Bass are slow. Some may
be caught in the creeks on
worms and shallow crank-
baits, but they are hit-and-
miss at best.
Ciappies are slow as well,
though a few have been
caught below the dams by
pool levels, and other such
