Man pleads guilty to illegal pill distribution

Winfield bridge to be closed at night for repairs By Jack Bailey

STAFF REPORT WINFIELD -- U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin has announced that a Florida man pleaded guilty in federal court for his role in an illegal oxycodone distribution scheme in Putnam County. Jason Corley Padgett, 35, of Tampa, Fla., admitted on Monday in federal court that he sold oxycodone to a confidential informant working at the direction of the Metropolitan Drug Enforcement Network Team (MDENT) beginning in September 2010. Padgett further admitted that a few of the illegal pill transactions occurred in Florida, but most of the transactions involved the defendant shipping quantities of oxycodone to Winfield. Padgett also admitted that he provided the confidential informant with checking account information that the informant used to deposit money into an account, prior to receiving shipments of oxycodone from the defendant. According to his plea agreement, bank account records reveal more than $43,000 in cash deposits were made to the defendant’s account and 13 Federal Express packages were shipped from the defendant to the confidential informant between November 2010 and February 2011.

Not all Knots made the Same

David Payne Sr. Column by David Payne Sr.

I’ve been taking my son fishing this summer and he’s at just the right age where he needs to be tying his own knots. I remember the knots I used for tying on lures at his age – basically an overhand knot, then a few more overhand knots on top of that for good measure. When I became a Boy Scout, however, I learned that like tools, there are different knots for different jobs. Whenever you snag your line and pull it until it breaks, you’ve probably noticed that it breaks at the knot every time. There’s a good reason for that – the knot is always the weakest part of any line. You’d think your 10-pound

test line would break under 10 pounds of pressure. That might be true for the line, but not for your knot. There was a time when I experimented with the tension (pulling) force needed to break different lines with different knots. What knot you tie – and how you tie it – makes a major difference. The breaking point of a double or triple overhand knot like I first tied on 10-pound line, is about five pounds of pressure. If you tie a cinch knot – the knot I use – the breaking point is around nine pounds of pressure and note, even with one of the best knots for the job, 10-pound line still won’t withstand 10 pounds of pressure. If you’re tying overhand knots, you will need 20pound test line to get the same strength you get from a cinch knot with 10-pound test line. Regardless of what knot you choose, it won’t live up to its full potential unless you lubricate the line as you tighten it. If you pull a knot tight with dry, monofilament line, the heat from that friction will actually melt the line and make it weaker. I suppose you could also use water, but I always spit on the line to lubricate the knot. There are three basic knots you need for fishing line – a knot to tie

on the hook or lure, a knot to tie on something, such as a sinker above the hook and a non-slip loop knot. For the non-slip loop, Lefty Kreh – the same guy who invented the Kreh Deceiver fly in the 1950s, invented a knot for the purpose, called the Kreh knot. I also invented a non-slip loop knot, which I call the Payne knot. I always use a cinch knot for tying swivels, lures, flies or hooks to the end of my line. It’s only supposed to have six turns, because once you get past seven turns, the knot can be difficult to tighten. When I was younger, I went as far as 11 loops with any line less than 10-pound test, but I’ve not done that in years. To tie the cinch knot, thread the line through the eye of the hook and pull through four inches of line. Hold the hook or lure with one hand and make several twists (at least five) around the standing part of the line. If you are using heavy fishing line, you can get by with and probably shouldn’t make more than four turns. Just above the hook line, the line forms an "eye" just above the hook. Thread the loose end through that line and pull tight. The Palomar knot is your go-to knot when you want to tie some-

thing onto the middle of a line. Let’s say you want to tie on a sinker ¬not talking about slipshots, of course, but you‘ve already tied on your hook. You don’t have to cut the line to tie the knot, if you know how to tie the Palomar Knot. When I was a kid, I used this knot for tying hooks along a traut line or drop line. Double over a few inches of line and pass the newly-formed loop through the hook eye, but don’t pull it all the way through. Let the hook hang loosely and tie an overhand knot with the doubled line, but don’t tighten it. Pass the hook through the hoop and pull carefully until the knot tightens just above the hook eye. This is supposed to be the strongest fishing knot yet conceived and can be used to tie a hook on the end of the line as well. There are many reasons you need a non-slip loop knot for fishing. I use them to attach my homemade leaders to the main fly line. Crankbaits need to be tied on with a non-slip loop to work properly. There are several of these knots out there. Of course, there’s Kreh’s and Rapala has its own knot for the purpose. I, however, prefer my own creation, the Payne knot. In the Boy Scout, the non-slip

loop of choice is the bowline, an ancient knot from the days of sail. The only reason that the bowline isn’t used for fishing is because it will slip when used on monofilament line. My knot is basically a modification of the bowline, so it will work on monofilament line. I can tie it in 12 seconds and it is as strong as anything I know. I am right handed, so reverse the directions if you are left handed. Thread the line through the crankbait’s eye and hold the loose end of the line with your right hand. Let the crankbait hang down several inches, because you will need a lot of slack line. Make three small loops in the standing part of the line (the part between the crankbait and the reel). I do this by wrapping it loosely around my finger. Pinch the loops between your left thumb and index finger to ensure they don’t come apart. Thread the loose end of the line through these loops and wrap it once around the standing part of the line, then back through the loops. Spit on the loops. Pull it tight, but keep a little pinch pressure on the loops as you do to keep the loops from coming apart as you tighten. Contact David Payne Sr. at

National Forest Caves to remain closed to the Public By David Payne Sr.

The U.S. Forest Service recently announced the caves in the Monongahela National Forest – which protects nearly one million acres in West Virginia – will stay closed to the public. The move comes just before the National Speleogical Society’s convention in Lewisburg last weekend. The caves have been closed since 2009, but the recent move continues the moratorium until next year and could be extended later. The closure is meant to prevent spread of white-nosesyndrome, a disease that has killed several million bats in the United States. “We know bats play an extremely important role in reducing agricultural and forest pests”, notes Forest Supervisor Clyde Thompson. “It’s been very difficult to predict the long term ef-

fects of any management actions, so we’ve been taking the most cautious approach to protecting bats in caves. This is especially important since the Monongahela contains numerous caves heavily used by bats and the Forest in general is important to sustaining bat populations.” The disease is caused by a fungus, which appears on the muzzles of hibernating bats. Once a cave is infected, the fungus spreads rapid and mortalities can exceed 90 percent. The fungus itself is not by itself lethal, but is similar to athlete’s foot, only on a bat’s nose. The fungus irritates the bats so, that they are unable to enjoy their hibernation slumber. The annoying itching awakens the bats, who not only use up their fat reserves, but also fly outside of the caves, apparently in search of food. Sometimes, they even leave their caves in mid-day in search of flying insects to eat,

which are of course absent in winter, and the bats starve to death. The Forest Service will be conducting an analysis, which is slated to begin this summer, to study the impact of public intrusion into bat caves. Officials are still unsure of a way to make caves accessible to the public, while protecting native bats. Two years ago, white-nosesyndrome was discovered in bats in West Virginia’s largest and most important bat cave, Hellhole in Pendleton County, where an estimated 200,000 bats hibernate each winter. The cave is also important nationally as it is a designated critical habitat for two federally-endangered species, the Indiana Bat bat and the Virginia big-eared bat. Hellhole supports nearly 20,000 of these endangered bats – including more than 40 percent of the world’s population of Virginia big-eared bat, which had re-

bounded its population from the brink of extinction in the 1970s (most of the population increase was in West Virginia). The cave is on privately-owned land and closed to the public. Scientists have been so concerned about possible effects of the fungus, they have captured several Virginia big-eared bats to create a captive stock, to later restore the population should it become extinct in the wild. The fungal bat plague was first seen in early 2006 in a cave near Albany, N.Y. Since then, it has spread more than 500 miles to caves in 10 states from New Hampshire to Tennessee. It has been documented in several other West Virginia caves. It is not believed to be harmful to humans, or any animals besides bats. The fungus is spread from batto-bat as they gather in caves and mines for winter hibernation. Scientists believe that it may also

be spread unknowingly by careless or unknowing cavers – one of the reasons the speleological society stresses freshly washing all caving clothing and gear – who carry fungal spores into caves. Infected caves may not initially show obvious signs of the fungus, so cavers might not be aware their clothing or gear is contaminated. The society has played a key role in studying the effects of the syndrome as well as educating cavers and the public alike about protecting bats. Bats play a key role in keeping insects, including as agricultural pests, mosquitoes and forest pests, under control. Between April and October, each bat can eat its body weight in insects each night. Bats provide a tremendous public service in terms of pest control. Contact David Payne Sr. at

4-H Annual Livestock Auction The Annual 4-H Livestock Auction will be held at the Show/Sale Arena on Friday, July 20th at 7 p.m. THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE PUTNAM COUNTY 4H YOUTH! Buying livestock at the fair is very simple. If you are interested in participating in the auction, but are unable to bid, just tell one of the Fair Officials how much you would like to spend and they will bid for you. The following are some frequently asked questions: Q - Do you bid by the pound? A - Yes Q - What do I do with the animal after I purchase it? A - 1) Have it butchered and wrapped for gifts; 2) Have it

butchered for a company picnic; 3) Have it butchered and wrapped for your own family; 4) Resale it at the livestock market. The difference between what you pay and the market price is tax deductible for both businesses and individuals who itemize as a donation. Q - How would I get it to the market or to be butchered and wrapped? A - The Putnam County Fair will provide transportation for these options within a 50-mile radius at no charge. Q - What is butchered weight after butchering? A - Listed below are the average butchered weights: Hogs: 80% or 160+ lbs. on 200 lbs.

Steers: 60% or 600+ lbs. on 1000 lbs. Lambs: 50% or 50+ lbs. on 100 lbs. Q - What does the 4-H participant do with the money they receive from the sale of the animal? A - Some of the money will go to repay the original cost of the animal plus the cost of raising it. Profit is used for "seed" money for next year's project, or it can be used for college expenses, etc. Q - Can two individuals bid together for one animal? A - Absolutely! Splitting the cost is an excellent idea. Bring your friend to split costs, or team up with someone at the Fair.

4-H Pride in Your Project Awards 4-H "Pride In Your Livestock Project Award" Presentations will be held at the Show/Sale Arena prior to the 4-H Livestock Auction on Friday, July 20th at 6:30 p.m. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to exhibit your 4-H Livestock project at the Putnam County Fair.

Multi-talented Hunter Hayes will take the stage during 2012 Putnam County Fair Among the many extraordinary things about Hunter Hayes, the multi-talented musician, writer, producer and performer, perhaps what is most astonishing is that in truth, he’s just getting started. And it is that fact which holds the promise of Hunter Hayes becoming one of the most significant musical talents to emerge, not just from Nashville, but from anywhere, in a long, long time. Already, he has accomplishments beyond most musicians wildest dreams: Singing “Jambalaya” with Hank Williams Jr. in front of 200,000 people (15 million YouTube views) at the age of four; appearing with Robert Duvall (who gave Hunter his first guitar) in “The Apostle” at the age of six; playing with Johnny and June Cash, and Charlie Daniels at a BBQ; performing for President Clinton and many more. You might say that he’s lived a

charmed life. But those experiences are simply the natural result of Hunter’s prodigal talent, one that’s been there from the beginning as though a gift from God, and one that he’s always conscious to be in service to. Taking up guitar at the age of 6, Hunter’s ability to pick up instruments (including bass guitar, drums, keyboards, and more) became evident. Songwriting, too, has been a constant undertaking of Hunter’s. “I wrote my first song at 6,” he recalls, “I spent every day with the guitar and I just made up songs.” Hunter’s songwriting has been informed by an eclectic grouping of influences. “When I was really young, Garth Brooks was enormous, and I was a huge fan. I always loved LeAnn Rimes and especially Clint Black for his soulfulness. As I’ve gotten older, my influences have broadened – John

Hunter Hayes Mayer, Michael Buble, Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Beatles – all of these artists have somehow been a part of my development as a songwriter.” Like playing and songwriting,

performing has become almost second nature to Hunter who, in just his short life, has shared the stage with the likes of Taylor Swift, Hank Williams, Jr., Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum. Now Hunter, in the producer’s chair with Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins) releases his self-titled Atlantic Records debut album. The expectations may be high, but no one has set higher expectations and ambitions for his music than Hunter himself. “Music is a spirit. It heals. It’s an amazing thing to be loved and appreciated, and sometimes, music has not just been my best friend, it’s been my only friend.” In 2011, Hunter released his debut album, toured with superstar Taylor Swift, kicked-off his first ever headlining tour, made his national network television

debut on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman and made his Grand Ole Opry debut. Hunter says, “I’ve been lucky as a kid. I’ve met some of the greats, and whether it’s Johnny and June (Cash), Charlie Daniels or Brad Paisley, you could sense they were in it for the love of the music. That was the thing I took away from every single one of those people.” “I don’t know if I’m worthy of being considered of ‘carrying the torch,’ but I would love to be told that by somebody someday. A lot of the decisions I make are from answering the question ‘are we doing it for the right reasons?’ I want people to say about me, ‘I know he’s making music because he loves it.’” Make plans to come to the Putnam County Fair on Saturday, July 21st and see for yourself the talented Hunter Hayes!

Bucky Covington sings Saturday, July 14th Bucky Covington is a man known and loved as much for

his engaging personality as for his formidable talent. That

talent has shone through on three hit singles that helped push his debut album toward gold status; his undeniable likeability and his ability to wear his stardom as comfortably as his jeans has done the rest.

Both come together on stage, where the long-haired North Carolinian with the rocker's charisma and the country boy charm thrills old and new fans alike as he performs across the country. The full range of Bucky’s

personality finds expression in his newest record. The project reflects his wealth of musical influences, as he brings blue-eyed soul to "Hold A Woman" and Lionel Ritchie's Commodores classic "Sail On," a Southern rocker's energy to "I Always Said You'd Be Back," a South-of-the-border feel to "Mexicoma," pure riffrocking power to "Evel Knievel" and a connoisseur's sincerity to "Giants," a song that spells out the genre's debt of gratitude to groundbreaking artists like Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, Tammy Wynette and Johnny Cash. As one of country music’s most recognizable stars, Bucky continues to maintain that Everyman approachability. "My fans are the greatest," he says, "and I'm happy when they ask for a picture or autograph. I figure I owe them that much." Many of those fans have watched him from his first days on American Idol, and have seen him mature as an artist. As he comes into his own both musically and personally, Bucky Covington is more than fulfilling the promise he brought to the table initially, and he continues to establish himself as one of the most exciting and important young performers on the contemporary country scene.

Dove-nominated group 33 Miles to share their message at 2012 Fair We were born as strangers in a strange land. Our lives are but a vapor in the grand scheme of millenniums. But there‘s far more to life for us, as Christians. We‘re citizens of high heaven! (Philippians 3:20, The Message). The trouble is, we don‘t often live like we know it! For Chris Lockwood and Jason Barton of 33Miles, it‘s that pursuit of a Christ-focused, heaven-minded life that fuels ever ything they do, especially their music. Intensifying the message of

their previous release, One Life, 33Miles shifts musical gears with Today, amplifying the truth that to make ever y day count, we‘ve got to live with eternity in mind. A lot of people live for the future, and a lot of people live in the past, but very few people tend to look at their lives and think about what life can be like right now. That message had been immanent for the Dovenominated group over the past few months, as one of their original members,

‘Offering’ sings for the Glory of God Offering was formed in 2003 by Pastor David Johns ( Winfield Baptist Church) and Dale Harper ( Vocals, lead guitar). Pastor David's idea was to transition the church's music from the traditional piano and organ into a more culturally relevant style of worship. Thus, Offering was born. The name Offering is a symbol of what makes the group so unique. Everyone in Offering is in it for the glory of God. To each of the members, every performance, every song, and every practice is an offering, given to the uplifting and building of God's kingdom. The name Offering was an appropriate term for a band committed to honoring our Father with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength. Beginning in 2003 with only Dale and an acoustic guitar, Offering is now 10 members strong. Most of the members were all established players in the area and have enjoyed making music for years, in and out of church. Their experience as diverse musicians generated an obsession with rhythmic integrity and the sustaining pulse that is the essence of fun, uplifting music. The band has self produced four live recordings, simply titled Offering Live. They were produced at Winfield Baptist Church and cap-

keyboardist Collin Stoddard, followed God‘s calling into worship ministr y full time. “For five years, it‘s just been the three of us,” says Chris. “But I think God had been preparing Collin‘s

heart, just as he‘d been preparing us. As his heart was headed elsewhere, our sound began to change.” If you listen closely, you‘ll hear influences well beyond the Rascal Flatts stereotype applied to 33Miles in days past, a wall of sound reminiscent of artists like Coldplay, Train and One Republic. But that wall never overshadows the message… and 33 Miles will be bringing that message to the Putnam County Fair on Tuesday, July 17th.
