By Steve Liner Managing Editor firstname.lastname@example.org Bucking the statewide trend, where the unemploy ment rate remained un changed from May through June, Washington County unemployment grew by 0.7 percent to total 11.2 percent. However, unemployment in Florida as a whole is 10.6 percent. Nevertheless, Gov. Rick Scott touted the num bers as a success. Today I learned that since January, Florida has added 85,500 new jobs, 4,300 of which were added in June, Scott said. This is great news for Floridians. I am encouraged that Florida is still bucking the national trend in unem ployment. We maintained a steady unemployment rate from May to June while the national unemployment rate continued to climb. Ultimately, my goal is to make sure every Floridian has the opportunity for a job. This wont happen overnight, but were off to a great start. Weve begun transitioning our workforce to the private sector, streamlining govern ment functions and leading our state in the right direction. The month-to-month in crease from May to June this year continues the countys trend, the June 2011 gure represents a year-to-year in crease from June 2010 when the rate was 10.8 percent. From May to June, the number of people employed in Washington County slid by 87, from 8,935 to 8,848. The number of people in the labor force (those ready, willing and able to work) in Washington County slipped by 23 from 9,982 to 9,959. In comparison, Washing ton ranked 20 among the 67 counties in rate of unem ployment and the highest in the area while Holmes was at 8.4 percent, Jackson at 8.2 percent and Bay at 9.5 percent.

Beat the heat B3 Malloy honored with Crestview road By Angel McCurdy Florida Freedom Newspapers CRESTVIEW Col. Greg Malloy will never be forgotten if his former coworkers at Okaloosa Correctional Institution have any say. Dozens of people gathered July 21 under the hot sun for the dedication of Colonel Greg Malloy Road, which heads east from State 85 to the state prison south of Crestview. We care and well continue to care about Col. Malloy. Were proud of why were here, said Maj. Jon Brown, who works at the prison. He worked here for 19 years. He started here at the lowest rank and worked his way up. Everybody knew him. This was his home. Malloy, the senior ofcer at Holmes Correctional Institution, was killed Feb. 2 after he was shot by Wade Williams, who authorities were pursuing in a wooded area near the Gritney community after Williams killed his parents in Jackson County. Malloy was 44. In addition to his years in Okaloosa and Holmes counties, Malloy also worked for the Washington Correctional Institution now called the Northwest Florida Reception Center and the Tomoka Correctional Institution in Volusia County. He was promoted to colonel, the highest designation for an ofcer, on July 23, 2010.

Special to the News The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission (FWC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Wildlife Services and partner agencies are nishing a ve-year avi an inuenza monitoring project. The project was de signed to determine if mi gratory birds carried the Asian strain of the highly pathogenic avian inuenza (H5N1) virus to the U.S. All samples collected by the FWC and other state partners tested negative for any highly pathogenic strains. Biologists started the project in 2006 to rapidly detect and quickly respond should a highly pathogenic strain reach the U.S. There have been no reported cas es of avian inuenza in hu mans in the United States, but a number of people in other countries became sick or died from that virus after extensive, direct con tact with infected poultry. The USDA and its partners collected more than 450,000 samples nationwide, in cluding 5,200 plus samples from Florida. In Florida, much of the success of this project came from the voluntary participation of duck hunt ers who allowed biologists to sample the birds they harvested. Biologists col lected almost 3,000 samples at hunter check stations in several of Floridas wildlife management areas. Biolo gists sampled a wide vari ety of duck species, includ ing the northern shoveler, gadwall, mottled, mallard and green and blue winged teal. The remaining Florida samples came from bird die-off investigations from marine, freshwater and ter restrial habitats as well as from live birds, which were captured and released.

Local Washington County News | A3 Wednesday, July 27, 2011 Florida Department of Corrections, the DeFuniak Springs resident became close with many of his co-workers, including Sgt. Bruce Boughman, who led the effort to rename Little Silver Road in honor of Malloy. Boughman began seeking community support in March to change the roads name. He contacted residents on Little Silver Road and Okaloosa County commissioners, and then raised funds to make the sign a reality. I wondered what I could do to help. I wanted to do something, Boughman said. If you would have known (Greg), you would know why this was something we should do. If you knew him, you would understand. He was a swell individual. Malloys daughter, Payton, unveiled the street sign. When the 12-yearold removed the cover, applause broke out around her. As Payton and her mother, Donna Malloy, looked at the bright green sign, tears rolled down their cheeks. We take it day by day, Donna said after the ceremony. We are very, very honored by everything theyve done for us. It just gets very emotional. We have our days. This is one of our days, Payton said as she wiped her eyes and held a miniature version of the sign given to her by his former coworkers. This is where all his friends are, so it means a lot. After the ceremony, Boughman stared up at the sign and knew his friend would not be forgotten. Now, anytime a corrections ofcer goes down this road, Greg Malloy will be with him, he said. MALLOY HONORED from page A1 picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are effective, the alert reads, say ing mosquito netting can be used to protect children younger than 2 months old.

Hey, wait, dont roll your eyes like that! I cant help it that summer is moving on and the Big Red Crayon already is out at Walmart. But you know that the editor who has an opinion on everything has something to say about our kids returning to school next month. First, let me take care of business. Weve more or less redesigned the Back to School insert for you, trying our best to organize all the information you will need to get ready to send Junior to the classroom. And we have paid special attention, too, to information you may need to have handy throughout the school year. So, our plan is for you to take out the insert and put it in your need for school stuff. Now, there are two other messages I want to send along to you as preparations swing into high gear for school. First, I am so impressed with our students. What a joy it was to go to a steady stream of graduations and see how great the graduates were: a high percentage of honors graduates, lots of scholarships (in fact, the Farm Bureau scholarships are in this very edition of the paper!), ambitious plans for academic or military or home life. You have every reason to be proud of these young people. And, in case you didnt notice, we listed or printed photographs of literally hundreds of students of all ages who were honored for their work and other achievements this past school year. The victories by the kids bespeak a real victory by parents as well. Well done, everyone. Last, in the past few weeks I have heard of several opportunities for volunteers to help children who are at risk or have special needs or are just downright smart enough to merit added scholastic opportunities. I hope you will pick one! It can be as simple as helping provide or gather back to school supplies for kids whose families cannot afford them in this faltering economy or as challenging as teaching Junior Achievement classes or becoming a Guardian ad Litem for youngsters in need of help navigating through the legal system (which, by the way, could be no fault of their own). If you need help nding an opportunity, email me at sliner@chipleypaper. com. Isnt it great to live in a community where we can trust educators to have our childrens best interest at heart and depend on our neighbors to help out? I certainly think so. STEVE LINER Living the Editors Life When the Heritage Books for Washington and Holmes Counties went to press in 2006, no history of the writers great-grandfather, John Coleman Wells, was printed in either book. A token effort was made by this writer to nd his tombstone in one of the surrounding cemeteries where he was known to have lived, but to no avail. Soon after the valued books were released, my sister, Hazel Wells Tison, and I were discussing the absence of some our ancestors not included in either book. Hazel then informed me that our granddaddy was buried in Bethel Primitive Church Cemetery. She recalled seeing his grave down through the years during cemetery cleaning time and remembered hearing talk among the ladies as to why his wife, and the mother of his four sons and three daughters, Lucinda Speigner Wells Levins, was buried next to her second husband, Joseph Richmond (Joe) Levins, Jr., rather than by the rst husband. According to the aged and almost illegible tombstone for our loved one, it was learned that John C. Wells was born Oct. 1, 1850 in Butler County, Ala. He died Feb. 3, 1894, six months short of his 44th birthday. His grave lies between Nancy O. Wells, date of birth Feb. 17, 1892 and died July 12, 1892 and Willie Erie Wells, born Feb. 1, 1900 and died Aug. 6, 1900. The parents of these young children are unknown to the writer. Research reveals that John Coleman Wells was the son of William Jesse Wells and possibly his second wife, Judy Elizabeth Wells. William Jesse Wells also had children by his rst wife, Lucinda Elizabeth Wells, with very little information known about the directions these offspring took in life. It is known that James H. Wells, born to the above couple, married Francis E. Mathiny on Aug. 2, 1868, with the marriage recorded on Page 2 of the Marriage Records of Butler County, Ala. James H. Wells went to Santa Rosa County in his early life and is the patriarch of the Wells lineage there. Daughter, Eliza Ann Wells, married John Elbert Wells, reportedly from a totally different Wells Family. Their only surviving offspring, John Henry Wells, who married Nancy Eliza Odom Wells, remained in the Oakey Streak region of Butler County and is the progenitor of the Wells kin presently residing in the area of Andalusia and Red Level, Ala. It is established that before departing Butler County, Ala., in the early 1880s, John Coleman Wells had married Lucinda Speigner Wells, date of birth July 30, 1857 and died Sept. 1, 1947, although no marriage date is known by me. The couple, along with their two children, James Thomas Wells (my grandfather), date of birth Dec. 14, 1873 and Mary Elizabeth Wells Peters, date of birth Aug. 30, 1876 and died Oct. 16, 1972, accompanied the parents on the move PERRYS PRA TTLE Perry Wells By Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack Special to the News At the U.S. Department of Agriculture, we are looking for new ways to help Americas producers succeed. We want farmers and growers with operations of all sizes to be protable and to make the decisions that are best for their land and their families. We know that when agriculture is healthy and rural America is healthy, it helps support our nation as a whole. That is why we have worked to help strengthen American agriculture by expanding markets for our goods and supporting innovation. With our global trading partners, we work aggressively to break down trade barriers and we are reaching out to producers and enterprises of all sizes with information about how to tackle the export market and nancing to make it happen. You may not know it, but this year should be the best ever for American agricultural exports. Theyll top $137 billion dollars and support more than 1 million American jobs. At the same time, we are looking to expand opportunities for producers to sell their products regionally and in their own communities. Making these sorts of connections so a farmer can sell to a local school, hospital, or a family just a few dozen miles away helps keep wealth right here in America, and is creating good paying jobs in our rural communities. This week I was lucky to participate in a celebration of Marylands agricultural economy. You may not know it, but this relatively small state is one of the top producers of poultry in the nation. And like many other states such as Michigan, Oklahoma, Vermont and Oregon, they have embraced local and regional markets, and celebrated them with a Buy Local week and awards to folks helping create jobs through regional and local food systems. Finally, we are working to drive innovation through cutting edge research. In the past few years alone, USDA has helped reveal the genetic blueprints for a host of plants and animals including corn, soybeans, pigs and turkeys to help combat diseases and increase productivity. This builds on our longstanding partnership with American farmers which has helped them double, triple and even quadruple yields of major crops in my lifetime. As I travel the country, I love to hear from farmers, ranchers and growers who are doing new and exciting things with their operations and helping create jobs in their communities. They are breaking into new markets at home and abroad, becoming more productive, and benetting from efforts to produce renewable energy here at home. Here at USDA, we will always work to support good markets and innovation so we have a stronger agriculture industry and rural America to pass on to the next generation.

Opinion Washington County News | A5 Wednesday, July 27, 2011 By Sheldon Richman Future of Freedom Foundation The U.S. government has run up a debt of more than $14 trillion, nearly the size of the economys an nual output and its not enough! So the politicians want to borrow $2.4 trillion more. But the need con gressional authorization. Thats what Washington is in a tangle about these days. For 94 years Congress has set a limit for the gov ernments borrowing. But raising the limit was usually a mere formality. In other words, it was no limit at all, and government felt free to borrow at will. Among the effects of borrowing is big ger government. The U.S. budget is $3.8 trillion. The government is borrowing 40 cents of every dollar it spends. Now imagine its having to raise the full $3.8 trillion in taxes. Bor rowing permits a growth in government that would be virtually impossible other wise because some portion of government spending the portion borrowed appears free. Of course it is not free. Borrowing brings several kinds of costs, but they lie in the future or are difcult to discern. One cost is inter est, which last year came to more than $400 billion. A second cost is higher interest rates. When the government is in the inter national capital markets looking for money, it adds to the demand for limited lendable funds and bids up interest rates for everyone else. A third cost is related to the last. When the gov ernment borrows money, no one else can borrow that money. Thus, private proj ects, which ultimately would have aimed at satisfying consumers, must go un funded. That is a real loss in welfare, but it is unseen. We are poorer as a result. To most pundits and politicians, the grown-up position is to favor increas ing the debt ceiling, which is $14.294 trillion. Paying Mas tercard with Visa is consid ered responsible, and any one who says otherwise will be branded an extremist, if not a nihilist who wants to bring down the economy. We are in a pretty sorry state if thinking the debt is big enough gets that reaction. It can be chalked up only to an ethos fostered by the governments own schools, of course that regards the state as the rst claim ant on all income. So the debate in Wash ington is not whether the ceiling should be lifted but under what conditions. Re publicans generally favor raising the limit as long as some spending cuts are promised. The Democrats want increased tax revenue along with spending cuts. Thus the impasse as the Aug. 2 deadline approaches. What should they do? What they should not do is raise revenue in any way. Taxation is the forced extraction of money, an im moral practice. If you and I cant morally demand money from our neighbors with a threat of force, nei ther can the politicians. If I max out a credit card, I can not legally steal money to make my payment. Why can the government? Of course the legal rules are different for the government, but that is what we should be object ing to. The government is a group of people, so the rules should be no different. Over many years, the policymakers have dug the hole that they are now try ing to climb out of. The hole, lets be clear, is the result of government spending, not insufcient taxation. Fed eral spending is close to 25 percent of GDP. Those who want to raise taxes complain that revenues are at a historical low of 16 per cent of GDP, but they have conveniently forgotten that the economy has not recov ered from a deep recession, in which unemployment de pressed revenues. Typically tax revenues are close to 20 percent of GDP regard less of tax rates. The problem is not on the revenue side. Indeed, the government shouldnt be taking any money by force. But in the short term, if the self-proclaimed wise men and women in Wash ington feel they have to pay the bills they have incurred in our names, let them real locate spending without borrowing new money. They can start by liquidating the empire and cutting the mili tary-industrial complex off from the public trough. All spending, including Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, should be on the chopping block. But then, instead of paying the bond holders, let the taxpayers keep their money.

The newcomers acquired land and settled in the new home just West of Bonifay in an area which become known as Wells Hill. Later it became Boswell Hill, and the present road leading to the home site is so named. My great-grandfather found employment in cutting cross ties for the railroad that was under construction across the northern border of Florida at that time. History reveals that this couple added three sons, Jasper Green Wells, Joseph Lafayette (Fate) Wells and John Smith Wells, along with daughters, Martha Lula Wells Chitty and Emma J. Wells Bryant, to this marriage. All the children remained in this general area, where they reared families. Only two of the offspring, James Thomas and John Smith Wells, have full stories contained in the Heritage of Washington Book, printed in June 2006. The prattler and his family have had new headstones erected for John Coleman Wells, and the two unknown babies. This was accomplished on March 11,2011. The new markers carry the exact inscriptions as the old ones, with the former ones now buried at the grave sites. Also nearing completion is an attempt to write a further history on my departed loved one who died approximately 117 years ago, leaving little background information and no personal items such as writings and pictures. It is the prattlers plan to expound in more detail the history of John Coleman Wells, his early life, and as much history as possible on his brothers and sisters in both families of his father. It has been my distinct privilege to get acquainted with my kinsmen in Covington County, Ala., and Santa Rosa County in the past 15 years. It has been the delight of my life to attend their annual family reunions and come to know them better. We have been received lovingly and kindly by the new found kin and many have added bits and pieces to the puzzle of our interesting family. My commitment is to not confuse, nor include unfounded background information, in the project now underway. Once my writing is complete, I plan to print it as an addendum to the Washington County Heritage Book and make it available to all those in the Wells Family who purchased the book and to others who the updated information may be of value to. I am indebted to many individuals for assistance in this undertaking and plan to give credit to them in the nished product for their efforts. See you all next week. PRATTLE from page A4

Band of Brothers subject turns 90 By Wendy Victora Florida Freedom Newspapers SA N TA ROSA B E ACH On Monday, Roy Gates wore his Easy Company cap commemorating his role with the 101st Airborne Division during World War II. He also wore a T-shirt made for him by the staff of Grand Boulevard Health and Rehab, with his name on the front in lime green paint and the number 90 ironed onto the back. Gates, a former Sea grove resident, celebrated his 90th birthday Monday with a party at his new home. The humble World War II veteran was one of 20 contributors to historian Steven Ambroses nowfamous book, Band of Brothers. The book was turned into an HBO mini series in 2001. He has stories to tell but doesnt share them often. And he doesnt say much at all about the book or the miniseries. Its a bunch of hooey, says his close friend Tom McGee of Seagrove, add ing that Gates was not mentioned prominently enough in either. But, he adds, Gates has stories, if he can be prod ded into telling them. For example, the sec ond lieutenant was there when Easy Company freed a number of concentration camp survivors at the end of the war. It was terrible, Gates said. Pretty dramatic to see the prisoners running from the camp. So emaci ated that some of them died. We caught the general who was commandant of that place, and we shot him after a reght, he added. On a more upbeat note, Gates was with the 101st when they went to Eagles Nest Adolph Hitlers private retreat in the nal days of the war. While the German leader was spending his last days underground in Berlin, Gates and his fel low paratroopers were joyriding in Hitlers tour ing car. And Gates, who liked to drink, was put in charge of Hitlers stash of exotic champagnes and whiskeys. What did I do with it? Gates asked, smiling. Drank it. He also made sure that ofcers clubs and NCO clubs all the way back to France were well-supplied with the expensive liquor. And he helped them make sure nothing was wasted. Top of the line, Gates reminisced, smiling. Top grade. For his 90th birthday, friends and family came from across the country. Among them was his son-in-law, R.D. Martin of Texas, who has read Band of Brothers and said he learned a lot about the devotion of men like Gates. He was quite a leader, he said. And the people that he was leading, ac cording to the book, really trusted him. He was just a part of the Band of Brothers a very important part of the war.S P E C I AL TO F LOR I DA F R EE DOM NI CK TOM E C E K | Florida Freedom South Walton reghter Patrick Armitage, right, shakes hands with Roy Gates on Monday during a birthday party for the 90-year-old World War II veteran.

OUTD OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to email@example.com A Section Unless you were out of town last weekend, you know how much rain we had. I heard a man who works at Eglin Air Force Base say they had 15 inches of rain in two days. I have a 12-inch rain gauge at my house, and it was overowing after two days. It started on Friday night and rained until mid-day Sunday. This foot or foot-and-ahalf of rain is what pushed Philips Inlet over the brink, and it nally made its way to the Gulf. When we have large amounts of rain coming in such a short period of time. it also does something to saltwater bays and freshwater ponds it turns them red. If you notice the Gulf after a heavy rain and rough seas, it also causes more foam than usual. In the bays, it causes extra amounts of foam. The real problem with extensive rain in the bay is it turns the water so red it is very hard to sight sh for redsh. I have heard several guides complaining about seeing sh the week before the rain, and now they cant be sure if the sh are still where they were. The red water might or might not affect the biting habits of redsh, but it doesnt seem to bother speckled trout. All of a sudden, it seems the bay has come alive with speckled trout, and I attribute it to all the schools of menhaden. If you stand on a dock and peer into the water, you will see thousands of menhaden as they come swimming by. If shed correctly, menhaden will catch more trout than all the shrimp you can keep alive on your boat. The rst thing you have to do is know how to throw a cast net. The next thing you will need is a good livewell. Not one of the kinds that recirculate the water; they will not keep a bag of menhaden alive for long. What you need is a livewell pumping freshwater from the bay to the livewell and returning it back to the bay at the same rate. Take a handful of menhaden and squeeze them, almost killing them, and throw them back into the water. This can be done in the area you caught the menhaden in the rst place. The specks will start popping them like bream will pop crickets thrown into a lake. Without using a cork or lead, hook on a live menhaden and cast it into the fray and hold on. About 80 percent of the trout you will catch will be undersized, but every now and then a big one will come along. Give it a try while the bay still is full of bait.

SUBMIT YOUR HUNTING AND F I S HING PHOTO S TO NEW S @CHIPLEYPAPER.COM Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer firstname.lastname@example.org SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM Amanda Rose caught her rst king mackerel on July 16. By Jason Shoot Florida Freedom Newspapers As if bull sharks didnt evoke enough fear, now theres one swimming in the Gulf of Mexico armed with a spear gun. Emmett Yancey, who owns and operates Aqua Adventures, a dive shop in Mexico Beach, had taken out a group of anglers for some offshore shing. Sneaking in a little dive time for himself near the end of their trip, Yancey was asked by a boy on the boat to spear a barracuda. The young boy said hed never seen a barracuda, Yancey said, and I said, All right, Ill shoot one. Theyre good to eat, and we eat them all the time. I swam over and shot one, and when I shot one, the visibility (underwater) was probably 60, 70 feet. I hadnt seen a shark all day. I shot that barracuda, and it took off. Out of nowhere, four sharks appear. A 10-foot bull shark came in and took the back half of the barracuda in one bite, turned around and came back for a second. It had my spear shaft in its mouth. I held on for 10 seconds going straight to the bottom. It didnt take long to realize I was going 80 feet deep. I watched him swim away with my spear gun. Ive been spearshing about 10 years now. Thats the rst time ever Ive had that happen to me. Its a very rare thing. Of course, when youre spearshing, sharks kind of get curious, but Id never had one bother me. That one there was never any danger. He was at the end of the line 20 feet out. I was never in any danger. I just lost my spear gun Id had forever. Unlike shing from a cozy deck chair on a boat or from the shore of a lazy river, there is the element of hunting in spear shing that is difcult to duplicate above the waters surface. SCUBA tanks strapped to their backs 120 feet underwater, spear shermen stalk their prey and have to wait for the ideal moment to re the spear at their target. A shot slightly off target could leave the sh injured but lively enough to put up a ght. And when that sh is a 100-pound amberjack with nothing but survival on its primitive mind, that ght can be a titanic struggle. The key to this is the placement of the shot, said Ron Childs, a founding member of the Mexico Beach Articial Reef Association. Youre not just shooting them. You want to shoot them right behind the eye (where the spine is located). You want to stone that sh. If you get a big sh and dont kill him, it could be hell. The waters off the coast of Bay County are home to hundreds of articial reefs, as well as sunken boats of different sizes resting on the seaoor at various depths. Each of those sites serve as sanctuaries for sh such as grouper, red snapper, ounder and all kinds of reef sh. Of course, lobster, rays, moray eels and the occasional octopus are down there, too. The variety of life makes almost any dive a rewarding one, whether a sh is reeled in or not. Unfortunately, a considerable investment of time and money is required before a diver can start spearshing at those depths. A diver has to be SCUBA certied, but also must learn the intricacies of moving underwater with air tanks, spearing a moving target and then getting the sh up to the boat. Most of the spearshermen I dive with are super-advanced divers, Childs said. These guys and ladies I dive with are like the best divers youd want to dive with your entire life. Theres so much to learn. I dont think you can go take a class, be certied and go spearshing. In spearshing, you need some time under your belt. Id say two years of diving to get familiar with the equipment. Your mask gets knocked off constantly when youre wrestling a big sh. Youve got to be able to handle that situation. Youre dealing with crazy situations you cant predict sometimes. Such as running into a bull shark carrying a weapon.

Hwy. 90 (Old Howell Chevrolet Building) Bonifay, Florida VISIT US ON FACEBOOK By Ali Helgoth Florida Freedom Newspapers COTTONDALE Many athletes who suffer life-changing inju ries talk about how learning a new sport helped them accept a new reality. Melvin Henderson isnt one of them. He had a positive outlook long before he started to compete in the Wheelchair Olympics, but through the games, he has found an outlet and parlayed his success into a source of inspira tion for others. This years competition will be Aug. 1-6 in Pittsburgh. In its 31st year, the National Veterans Wheelchair Games are sponsored by the Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Henderson is hoping for dona tions to cover the final $1,500 of the $3,500 to $4,000 cost of at tending this years games. For more than 24 years, Hen derson has used a wheelchair, the result of a vehicle accident on U.S. 231. Henderson has always been an athlete, from the days he played Little League baseball to high school basketball and track, and in the Army he played all the sports he could. He learned about the games through a VA nurse in 1983, the first year he participated. That year, expenses were covered, but subsequent events he has competed in 12 competitions winning 34 medals he has had to pay for himself. Athletic competition didnt serve as inspiration to come to terms with his paralysis, but it has given him something to strive for and is a way for him to meet others in similar positions. Special to the News WAUSAU Rain was the only factor not favoring the Inaugural Possum Classic 3D Archery Tournament on July 16, and even that did not deter a group of dedicated bow acionados from competing. Although a larger num ber of archers was ex pected, the eld of almost 30 contestants that did travel to this rural town was not disappointed with the event, they said. Orga nizers are already looking toward larger venues in which to hold next years event, which was met with approval from contestants and sponsors alike. If you promote all your events like you did this one, you can expect us to be a part of these in the future, said Donny Bush from Nock N Load in Bonifay. A major presenter of the event, Nock N Load pro vided the range of 3D tar gets for the tournament. Looking forward, we can see that this event will grow and draw from the surrounding region, said Wausau Fire Chief Sam Rudd. We had contestants from Holmes, Jackson and Bay County, as well as a few from the Slocomb, Ala., area. This group of compet itors was accompanied by almost 100 spectators, so the impact was good, espe cially for a rst-time event. We have room to grow the event, and with facilities such as Hard Labor Creek right here in Washington County, there will be room to partner with other busi nesses and grow the event over time. 3D Archery is report edly the fastest-growing sport in the United States, said Greg Mayo, a volun teer reman and one of the organizers of the tourna ment. We knew that popu larity would get some at tention, and were pleased with the overall event, especially in light of the heavy rain on the day of the tournament, and we appre ciate all the help from our sponsors. The event was executed by the Wausau Volunteer Fire Department and spon sored by Nock N Load. Participating sponsors included Kings Outdoor, Orange Hill Express, Sea borns Auto and Pizza Hut of Chipley. The Washington County Tourist Develop ment Council also helped to fund some of the adver tising for the event. Information about the tournament, including video clips, can be seen at www.WausauPossum Classic.info. Special to the News Recreational and commercial harvest seasons for spiny lobster in Florida are set to reopen. The special two-day spiny lobster sport season comes first, July 27-28 this year, followed by the regular lobster season Aug. 6 through March 31. The special two-day sport season occurs on the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in July each year to let recreational harvesters collect spiny lobsters before commercial lobster traps are placed in the water on Aug. 1. Recreational fishers must have a saltwater fishing license and a spiny lobster permit to harvest spiny lobsters, unless they are exempt from the recreational license requirements. Harvesters also must make sure their spiny lobsters have a carapace length greater than 3 inches to take them, and divers must possess a measuring device and measure all lobsters while in the water. During the two-day spiny lobster sport sea son, divers and snorkel ers are al lowed to take up to six lobsters per person daily in Monroe County and Bis cayne National Park waters and 12 lobsters per person daily in other Florida waters. Lobster fishermen may possess no more than the daily bag limit of lob sters when on the water. When lobster fishers are off the water, they may possess the daily bag limit on the first day and double the daily bag limit on the second day. Pos session limits are enforced on and off the water during the two-day sport season. During the regular sea son, the daily recreational bag and onthe-water posses sion limit is six spiny lobsters per person. Special to the News FWC again allowing campres in managed areas Because recent rains improved dry conditions across the state, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in cooperation with the Florida Division of Forestry, has rescinded an executive order issued last month that prohibited campres in wildlife management areas, wildlife and environmental areas and all other lands it manages. Campres are again allowed in designated areas. For rules and regulations pertaining to individual wildlife management areas, campers are asked to visit MyFWC. com/Hunting and click on WMA brochures. Though campres are allowed, the FWC has issued an advisory to remind everyone how important it is to properly manage any campre to ensure it is under control and completely extinguished when done. FWC adds Internet hunter safety course As a result of public demand, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has added a free hunter safety Internet-completion course. The course will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 30, at the Shooting Range at 955 Smith Road in DeFuniak Springs. Students must complete the Internet course before coming to class and should bring a copy of the final report from the online portion of the course. The final report form does not have to be notarized. An adult must accompany children under age 16 at all times. Students should bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes. The hunter safety course is required before anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, can purchase a Florida hunting license. The FWC course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces. People interested in attending this course can register online and obtain information about future hunter safety classes at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety or by calling the FWCs regional office in Panama City at 265-3676.

Special to the News Adrian Schell recently represented the Blue Springs chapter of the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution at the annual Mid-Southern Regional Meeting in Lexington, Ky. National President Mary Lib Schmidt presented the national theme, Living the American Dream, which connects on many levels: Our forefathers had a dream for America that has been defended through the years. The men and women of the Armed Forces are ghting to protect that dream. Their sacrice is allowing others to continue to live the American dream today. This year, NSCAR will raise funds to donate to the Fisher House Foundation. These funds will go toward building a new Fisher House. The foundation is a nonprot organization that provides families support and lodging while an injured military family member seeks medical attention from a nearby facility. There are 54 Fisher Houses throughout the United States and in Germany. Sixteen new Fisher Houses are in the planning, design or construction phase. CAR members are encouraged to volunteer at Fisher Houses in operation. Through volunteering and donating items such as books, toys, and food, CAR hopes to have a major affect on military families throughout the nation.

Washington, Holmes at a glance Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser B P A GE 1 Section By Steve Liner Managing Editor email@example.com What could be better than fresh produce from your garden, your neighbor or the Farmers Market? The answer, of course, is nothing. And now that Ive had my dessert in the form of watermelon from the Watermelon Festival (thanks to Judge Perry Wells!), my mind and appetite have turned rmly to red, plant-ripe and juicy tomatoes and okra and on and on and on. If you are growing it in Holmes or Washington counties, I want to sample it and perhaps preserve it in my kitchen. That is why I was delighted to come across a real nd of a cookbook that is designed by southerners with tastes like mine and produce like we have around here that is varied, creative and, well, delicious in its offerings. So this Extra is a bit of a throwback to the days of the housewife and the farm wife. But this cookbook is even accessible for us guys who happen to be single. Quail Ridge Press, a private publisher out of Brandon, Miss., has announced the publication of Best of the Best Fresh from the Farmers Market Cookbook. This brand-new cookbook provides 400 fresh fruit and vegetable recipes that all result in delectably delicious dishes. The tomatoes are red, ripe and juicy, the okra is tender, the butter beans are ready to be shelled, the corn is shucked, the strawberries are perfect, the purple hull peas are shelled and waiting for the boiling pot, the cucumbers are tender and sweet. What are we waiting for? Catching my eye rst were ways to turn your fresh fruits and vegetables into dishes like Stuffed French Toast with Strawberries, Ice Box Peach Jam (I already know this one is a winner and too easy to be believed), Fresh Corn Casserole, Hamiltons Fried Green Tomatoes with Grilled Shrimp, Buttermilk-Crusted Blackberry Cobbler, Peach Bellini, Simply Sensational Strawberry Salsa, Cucumber Spread with Lemon Thyme, Apricot Pepper Jelly, Gourmet Cream of Zucchini Soup, Green Tomato Pickles, Vidalia Souf and more. The recipes were selected from a database of more than 25,000 award-winning recipes included in the nationally acclaimed Best of the Best State Cookbook Series, which has sold more than 3.5 million copies, according to Quail Ridge. These, then, rank as 400 Recipe Hall of Fame selections. The best thing about this book, I think, is that it offers amazing, time-tested recipes that use produce that promotes our local economy. This book even offers tips on how to select and store fresh produce something my newly bachelorized self needs in abundance. Did you know that more of the antioxidant lycopene is absorbed by the body when tomatoes are cooked than from fresh tomatoes? Or that blackberries are the most potent cancer-ghting of all the berries, by nearly 40 percent? Get to be my age and youll want to know! And did you know it takes 12 honeybees collecting the nectar from 2,000 owers to make one tablespoon of honey? For those who love to read cookbooks from cover to cover, this cookbook is full of interesting facts and trivia. The Souths all-time favorite recipes are contained in the variety of offerings from Quail Ridge. According to the publisher, all Quail Ridge Press cookbooks are available at bookstores, kitchen and gift shops, online at www. quailridge.com or amazon.com, or by calling 800-343-1583. So, rst stop at the Farmers Market or produce stand and then hurry home to enjoy!

Engagements Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Minutes count, even in pet emergencies Minutes can mean the difference between life and death when an emergency arises, and a walk around the block or a hike through the woods could be dangerous or even prove fatal if you lack the right knowledge to care for a pet in an emergency. Dr. Sonya Gordon, associate pro fessor at Texas A&M Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine & Bio medical Sciences gives pet owners some tips on taking care of an animal when time is limited. Anytime a pet is hit by a motorized vehicle, it should be taken immedi ately to a veterinarian. Dogs and cats do not have the ability to tell us where it hurts, and there may be internal problems that cannot be noticed by the owner, Gor don said. When the damage caused by an accident leaves the pet immobile, Gordon suggests using a large towel or heavy blanket held tightly to simu late a stretcher to carry the animal. Never pick up an injured animal and hold it unless it is very small and can be sufciently restrained. It is important to be careful when working around injured animals that are in pain, because they might ac cidentally bite or become aggressive, even toward their owner. Remember to keep the pet warm and use clean fabric, like a towel, bandage or T-shirt, to cover any open wounds. This will help keep the wound clean and allow the blood to clot to help limit bleeding. If there is profuse bleeding from a wound, rmly apply a clean towel or other fabric to the area and apply continuous pressure. It is best not to use a tourniquet, but if one is applied, release it every 10 minutes, Gordon said. Danger can also occur on hiking and camping trips, and immediate veterinary care might not be avail able. If a pet receives an open wound during the journey, use clean tepid water to cleanse the area. Dishwash ing liquid, detergents, astringents and alcohol are too abrasive for use on open wounds and can cause addi tional damage to the tissue. A veterinarian should treat any infections that arise. Gordon advises against administering any human pain relievers or other medications to an animal unless directed by a veteri narian, because many human drugs are not safe for animals. While exploring the great out doors, be wary of snakes. If an owner suspects a pet has been bitten by a venomous snake, try to identify the location of the bite. If possible, iden tify the type of snake (take a picture with your phone if possible). Face and neck bites are by far the most serious and require immediate veterinary care because severe swell ing in this area can cause difculty breathing. Ice packs will help control the swelling and blood vessel dilation that allows the venom to spread, Gordon said. Lakes and the ocean can present problems if a pet falls in and is not a strong swimmer. It is best to buy a lifejacket for your pet to wear when participating in water activities such as boating. If traveling to a natural setting, it is best to bring a lot of water as well as a leash, even if the pet is well trained to follow verbal commands. Pets and humans both require a lot of water, and leashes provide important restraint in case an owner needs to control their pet in a danger ous situation, Gordon said. Gordon said dangerous situations can also arise inside a house. Hazard ous chemicals and all medications should be kept out of reach at all times. Pets are like young children, and the same precautions should be taken with both, Gordon said.

Nordt, Moreda engagement announced Pet TALK Heat around 100? Whats the big deal? Associated Press Residents of the South are used to hot weather, so the reaction down here about people in other parts of the U.S. suffering under 90and 100-degree weather might be akin to our having to endure mocking about the trouble we have dealing with cold winter days. But extreme weather is no laughing matter. The hu man body is resilient, but without the right precau tions, there are limits to what we can handle. So while we might nd it odd that tem peratures in the high 80s and 90s prove fatal to resi dents in northern states, it happens more often than many of us think. The National Oceano graphic and Atmospheric Administration, the federal agency that runs the Nation al Weather Service, reports that more people die of heat exposure, about 1,500 a year, than any other weatherrelated cause. The deaths should re mind us that not to take higher temperatures lightly. It doesnt hurt to brush up on tips for dealing with heat. For example, keep uid intake high, but eat less meat and other pro teins. NOAA notes that metabolism raises body temperature. The agency also re minds us that obese people are more susceptible to heat-related problems, as are older people, children and people with certain medical conditions or tak ing certain medications. A pharmacist can help tell people if the medicine they taking could create problems dealing with the heat. Alcohol also affects the bodys ability to stay cool. Even a cool beer could create problems, so drink ing should be reduced. Restrict activities dur ing the hottest parts of the day. And stay in the coolest places possible. That might not be inside the house. People without cooling units at home should get out; they can go to a mall or other store where they can window shop while waiting for the sun and tempera tures to go down.
Throughout our lives, we each have developed many habits, though not all habits we acquire are good ones. Quite often we develop habits that could be harmful or unpleasant to us or to those around us. Surely good eating and hygiene habits, along with exercis ing, are important to maintaining physical health and feeling well. Simi larly, good spiri tual health can be obtained by regularly attending your church or synagogue, reading the Bible and having a good prayer life. However, it is just as easy to develop sinful or bad habits as it is to develop good ones. Since we are known by habits which become part of our lives and personality, negative behaviors such as cursing, complaining, arguing or lying are just a few that should be avoided so as to not adversely affect our character. No one wants to be thought of in a negative way, so we should al ways try to remember that our actions and speech enly Father. Even a child shows what he is by what he does; you can tell if he is honest and good. Good News Bible, Proverbs 20:11 Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688 Stephen B.

By Our Habits We Are Known ??????? FAITH Wednesday, July 27, 2011 B Page 4 Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Normally in the evenings, I am writing or doing research for writing. But about a month ago, I was being lazy (well, the truth is the truth, after all) and turned on my television in time to see some new adventure show. Perhaps you know the one. Teams face challenges, thrills and spills as they trek across Morocco. Well, this particular episode features these Americans mounting camels to undertake part of their journey. Far from stately like the three wise men in a Christmas pageant, these camels spit, kicked, rolled over, bucked and generally acted like a bunch of two year olds in Sunday school. No one was laughing and no one was having a good time least of all the camels and, I assume, their would-be riders or the producers of this television show. Well, it got me to thinking about our interactions with God and man. How often I buck (I DO refrain from kicking and spitting, though) when faced with a chore or challenge I dont want to do. And it reminded me how often we just want our own way you know, like two year olds. What brings this story to this weeks Editors Life is my quirky thought process that made me ask if there were parallels in Scripture. And, of course, there are! My favorite, because I can really identify both with the emotion and with the stubbornness and pure cussedness of the whole situation is Moses getting water from the rock during the Exodus. Now, I would imagine in 40 years of desert travel, Moses got water from rocks hundreds of times, but I think you know the one I mean. Faced with a congregation of whining Israelites insisting on their terrible thirst, Moses loses his temper. Where God said, essentially, ask the rock for water, Moses gave it a whack with his rod in a combination of anger and frustration. How many times have I done what amounts to the same thing? Gods Word is clear: we are to treat all with gentleness, love and, frankly respect. But bosses, colleagues, spouses, children, civic authorities and on and on rub us the wrong way. We harden our hearts and whack! Truth is, we would be happier if we took Gods directive seriously from the beginning and approached every situation with love. We would get better results and expend a lot less energy than in kicking and bucking, wouldnt we? And, lest we think God is not serious in urging us to this approach, consider the consequences for Moses. Were told it is this episode of tantrum that barred him from setting foot in the Promised Land. Wow. Think about it. Pray about it. Camels: living like 2-year-olds STEVE LINER Living the Editors Life While sitting around the breakfast table at a local restaurant with my weekly breakfast buddies, the subject of our life before Christ came up. Someone shared how their speech changed when Christ came in, and they became a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Before Christ became Lord of their life, they confessed they had no problem using the name of God in vain, because there was no fear of God. The reason there is no fear of God in a person is because most believe the world revolves around them and their god (who is basically themselves) who wouldnt let anything bad happen to them (they think). That is exactly why the wise Solomon told us many times that the beginning of wisdom is the fear of God (Proverbs 1:7; 2:1-5; 3:7; 8:13; 9:10; 10:27; 13:13; 14:26-27; 15:16; 23:17; 29:25). Actually Proverbs 19:23 says The fear of the Lord leads to life, And he who has it will abide in satisfaction; He will not be visited with evil (NKJV). Our discussion continued as we were leaving the building, and others joined in. As we were talking about our life and sharing our faith, I had an idea that I shared with them and would like to share with you. By nature, I am always looking for new ways to get an opportunity to share my faith in Christ with someone else. So in my weird way of thinking, I began to realize that people who use Gods name in vain do not fear Him, because they do not know Him, but apparently they fear Satan. So I thought, what would happen if when we hear someone use a derogatory word such as damn with God as a prex, if we would just say Devil damn! and just act normal, like that was part of our normal vocabulary? I have this very strong feeling that the one who had abused the name of God would say, What did you just say? To which I would say, You just cursed my Father, so I cursed yours. Then they will get all offended and say, Are you calling me a child of the devil? To which I can then say, No you just did, that would be the only reason you would have cursed God, according to the scriptures. 1 John 3:10 declares, In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. Then I would lovingly share with them how Jesus Christ gave His life, so that they could have eternal life and become a child of God by repenting of their sins (Acts 3:19; 26:30), forsaking the gods and lifestyles they now follow and truly follow Him. Oh yes, I would be sure to tell them that they cant do it by themselves, its not just making a decision, signing a card or changing clothes, its allowing Christ to become Lord of your life, which means we become His slave (Matthew 6:24; 24:26; 25:23; Mark 10:44). Therefore we become obedient to His Word (the Bible) without reservation because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Then as I was thinking on this, I began to wonder why anyone would want be a child of Satan rather than a child of God? The answer was very simple. You see, it is much easier being a condemned child of Satan, than it is being an obedient child of God. Because the words of Christ offend us as He says to us all, Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughterin-law against her mother-in-law; and a mans enemies will be those of his own household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who nds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will nd it (Matthew 10:34-39 NKJV). Would you take some time today and listen to what you say, look at what you watch and pay attention to where you go, and consider, who is your Father? If you nd it offensive to damn the devil because youre afraid of him, you must be serving the wrong Lord. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell, (Matthew 10:28 NKJV). I hope and pray that you nd that you fear the Lord Jesus Christ with all the love that is in you.

Learning to control your speech FROM THE HEART Tim Hall NEW YORK (AP) The latest casualty of the long-running Protestant conicts over the Bible and homosexuality is a massive network of social service agencies that work in areas ranging from adoption to disaster relief. The theologically conservative Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod announced this week that direct work with its larger and more liberal counterpart, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, has become difcult if not impossible, because of doctrinal differences, including the 2009 decision by liberal Lutherans to lift barriers for ordaining gays and lesbians. Neither denomination would discuss the potential nancial impact Wednesday. Many Lutheran-afliated agencies receive substantial state and federal money through contracts and grants that would not be directly affected by any split. However, similar to Catholic Charities, Lutheran agencies are some of the biggest service providers in their communities and have been struggling to meet increased demand for help during the recession. Just one of the joint Lutheran agencies, Lutheran Services in America, said on its website that it encompasses more than 300 health and human services organizations with a combined annual budget of more than $16 billion. We recognize that this is a difcult issue. Its complicated, said the Rev. Herb Mueller, rst vice president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, based in St. Louis. Were trying to take a nuanced and caring approach to all of these situations thats also faithful to what the Bible teaches on these issues. The Rev. Donald McCoid, an ecumenical ofcer for the Chicago-based Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, said, We are deeply concerned about the ministries of care that may be challenged by the recent action of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The Lutherans are among several church groups facing fallout over recent steps toward accepting samesex relationships. The Episcopal Church caused an uproar among fellow Anglicans worldwide in 2003 by consecrating the rst openly gay bishop, V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire. Just this month, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) formally lifted the celibacy requirement for unmarried clergy, striking down an obstacle to gay and lesbian ordination. The situation for Lutherans differed in that decades of splits and mergers had already largely divided the religious community along theological lines. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, with about 4.5 million members, was formed from church bodies with Danish, Finnish, German and Swedish backgrounds. The merger that led to its latest incarnation occurred in 1988. Yet, even with separate denominations, Lutherans continued to work together in a wide range of joint ministries such as Lutheran Disaster Response, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and Lutheran World Relief. Among the cooperative agencies are organizations that offer health care to senior citizens, support for the disabled, job training, tutoring and housing, along with nding homes for foster children. Mueller said in an interview that 81 of the 120 recognized service organizations of the Missouri Synod cooperate in some way with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Twentytwo of the agencies offer adoption services or foster care, he said. The 2.3 million-member Missouri Synod has been studying the issue for more than a year through its Committee on Theology and Church Relations. This week, the panel issued a 15-page document of guidelines for churches, congregants and ministries on how they should decide whether to continue direct joint work with the Chicagobased Lutherans. The Missouri Synod the ology committee said mem bers of its denomination should examine whether joint cooperative agencies: Adopt operational prin ciples alien or contrary to Scripture. Hire staff or a leader whose lifestyle is scandal ous or openly and unrepen tantly sinful. Have board members overseeing an agency who become conicted because of differing beliefs. Have leaders or staff who advocate policies con trary to the Christian faith.

State sets tax holiday August 12 through 14 Florida has once again established a tax holiday helping with back-toschool purchases. This year, the holiday is set from August 12 through August 14. Florida law directs that no sales tax or local option taxes (also known as discretionary sales surtax) will be collected on sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $75 or less, or on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less during the three-day tax exemption. The exemption does not apply to any item of clothing selling for more than $75, or to any school supply item selling for more than $15. Books are not exempt from tax during the 2011 Sales Tax Holiday. Clothing means any article of wearing appar el, including all footwear roller blades, and skates) intended to be worn on or about the human body. However, clothing does not include watches, watchbands, jewelry, umbrellas, handkerchiefs, or sporting equipment. A representative list of items is included in this publication. School supplies means pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, note per, legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, construction paper, markers, folders, poster board, composi tion books, poster paper, scissors, cellophane tape, glue, paste, rulers, com puter disks, protractors, compasses, and calcula tors. Items normally sold as a unit must continue to be sold in that manner. They cannot be a unit sepa rately priced and sold as individual items in order to obtain the sales tax exemption. Example 1: A pair of shoes normally sells for $80. The pair of shoes cannot be split up in order to sell each shoe for $40 to qualify for the exemption. Example 2: A suit is normally priced at $150 on a single price tag. The suit cannot be split into two separate articles so that each piece may be sold for $75 or less in order to qualify for the exemption. How ever, items that are nor mally priced as separate items may continue to be sold as separate items and qualify for the exemption if the price of the item is $75 or less. Example 3: A pen and pencil set is normally priced at $18 on a single price tag. The set cannot be split into separate items so that either of the items may be sold for $15 or less in order to qualify for the exemption. The total price of items advertised as buy one, get one free, or buy one, get one for a reduced price, cannot be averaged in order for both items to qualify for the exemption. For this exemp tion layaway items will qualify if items are bought using the retailers layaway policy made during or after the exemption period.
