BONIFAY — The Health Fair of Holmes Council on Aging will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at the National Guard Armory. Please come join us and wear your red, white and blue to celebrate our seniors and our soldiers.


BONIFAY — The Bonifay City Council issued a proclamation recognizing the first week of June as National Garden Week on Monday. “Gardens have a passion for nurturing the beauty and resources of the earth through the planting of seeds, the care of all plants and the riches of their efforts,” City Clerk Jeri Gibson read. “Gardeners seek to add beauty, splendor,

fragrance and nutrition to our lives through the growing of herbs, vegetables, foliage and flowers. “Gardeners work to preserve our country’s traditional spirit of independence and initiative through innovation and hard work,” and “gardeners advocate the importance of all creatures, large and small, that share our world and their roles in a balanced and productive ecology,” according to the proclamation. The council also agreed to allow the Bonifay Garden Club to place

ribbons on Waukesha Street for the duration of National Garden Week. The garden club agreed to take on the task of maintaining the potted plants in downtown Bonifay. In other business, the council approved resident Jim Hayes’ request for the city to provide him with a quitclaim deed to 10 feet of the alleyway next to his property on the terms that an easement be honored, allowing the city to place utility lines through that property if need be. Mayor Lawrence Cloud

voted against the request. Property owner Bill Lee approached the council about water accumulating in the cellar of the day care center on Indiana Avenue. “In the 20 years we’ve been there, we’ve never had an issue until the new water lines were put in,” he said. “I’m not saying that is the issue, I’m just saying it’s a possibility.” Superintendent Jack Marell agreed to take a look at the property

DOLLAR from page A1 Friday evening every week. “Wages start from $10 to $12,” Brewer said. “The work is hard, but there’s room for advancement. I’ve enjoyed working there.” He said the location was fundamental for developing a distribution center in that area. “We try to reach the furthest we can in the shortest amount of time, and Marianna was ideal for reaching the tip of Florida, to Dothan (Ala.), to Bainbridge (Ga.) and to reaching our largest store in demand, which is in New Orleans in Louisiana. Amazingly, that store has six reg-

isters and receives a whole trailer of merchandise each week, where most only need a third.” The biggest demand the company is trying to satisfy at the moment, Brewer said, is for groceries. “Food is a very competitive market, and we’re trying to get you into those stores,” he said. “We actually eat the cost of food in the hopes of getting you into the store to purchase something else. We’re not making any money on our food distribution, but we think this is what it takes to get you in and keep you coming in.”

during the Two-Toe Tom Festival. Town Clerk Jody Sellers told the council the property was appraised at $7,500. “I suggest we send him a letter letting him know we appreciate him for letting us use it for the festival, and at the present time it is not in our budget,” Chairman Danny Powell said. “However, we are interested, and if we have enough in our budget by the next festival, we’ll make him a substantial offer.” The council also discussed that its maintenance man, Jesse Sheffield, is up for a review and potential raise. “He does good work,” Powell said. “He’s a jack of all trades and can do just about anything. We just have to work on his time management.” The council approved of giving him a 5 percent pay increase. The council also approved a resolution and supplemental agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation. Sellers said there was an agreement with the FDOT to pay the town for maintaining the sides of State Road 79 within the town limits for $2,533.86 a quarter, and they were requesting an extension of their agreement from June 30 to Sept. 30. “I don’t see where we have a choice,” Powell said. “We need the money.” The council also agreed to look into getting a getting a grant for additional playground improvements at the park. “We’ve noticed an increase of the use of the tennis courts and would like to expand for more recreational options for older children and teens,” Powell said. Council members also agreed with council member Darlene Madden’s suggestion to look into improving the recreational center by possibly repairing the kitchen’s cabinets, adding new tile floors for the

GARDEN from page A1 to try to assess the problem. Mayor Lawrence Cloud told the council they had received a letter requesting funds for Holmes County High School’s upcoming Project Graduation. “How we’ve always handled it is that we each contribute on a individual basis,” Cloud said. “I for one think that this is a worthy endeavor and strive to contribute to the cause every year.” The council members agreed to take the annual letter to the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners requesting $60,000 for the street department and $60,000 for the fire department and present it to the board in person as a request for an agreement for a regular yearly income.

“We need something we can depend on,” Council Member Roger Brooks said. “We fight this battle every year, and it is ridiculous.” Brooks addressed a letter to the editor stating someone had tried to call the city after hours and received a message to call back in the morning. “We’ve got this new system to help our residents,” Brooks said. “We’ve got an after-hours number for people to call when they need us. We just need to add it to our message system so people know we’re available to them 24-7.” Brooks also praised the improvements made to residential areas since the new code enforcement letters had been sent out. “It’s been a good thing,” Cloud

said. “We’ve got happier people because of how much cleaner everything looks, and most of those happy people are the ones who received the letter. I think it’s the satisfaction of knowing a little extra hard work pays off.” Police Chief Chris Wells told the council the Bonifay Police Department was invited to compete in Orlando for this year’s National Click it or Ticket, stating that even if they come in at last place, it would still mean $10,000 for the department, and if they won first place, it would be $15,000. He said there was also a chance they could win a new patrol vehicle. The next scheduled city council meeting is set for 6 p.m. May 27 at Bonifay City Hall.

bathrooms, reinforcing the window seats and putting a new seal on the concrete floor. “Women have the tendency to notice things in the kitchen,” Madden said. “It’s nice that we’ve got a new roof, but we need to do something about the inside, because we’ve got these women coming in for family reunions and cooking, and it’s just an awful sight. How are we going to get more people to rent out the recreational center when it’s looking like that?” Powell told the council there had been acts of vandalism on the dock at the park. “We’ve patched it up the best we can until we can get the parts we need and in the color we want because when I went up there to get what we need, they didn’t have it in the color we needed,” Powell said. “I’ll keep looking for our color, and I’ll also get quotes to see if we can get the whole thing replaced in red or cedar.” The council approved of moving the Two-Toe Tom Festival to the first weekend in April instead of the second. “We just can’t compete with Toad Lick,” Madden said. Council members agreed it should be mandatory that maintenance workers work a full day before and on the day of the Two-Toe Tom Festival. Madden also said the Esto Fire Department would be covering the TwoToe Tom Beauty Pageant concession stand and that additional outlets would be required for B&B Inflatables to return to the next festival. Further discussion of the festival took place, including the possibility of a new soundman and increasing the entertainment to cover both sides of the park. Powell said they made a profit of $1,206 at last year’s event. The Esto Town Council will meet again at 7 p.m. June 3.

From Staff Reports BONIFAY — The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office reported the arrests of three people following two high-speed chases over the course of two nights. Wesley Adam Thompson, 30, of DeFuniak Springs and Peggy Jo Turner, 38, of DeFuniak Springs, were arrested after a 20-minute high-speed chase on the evening of May 8. A Holmes County deputy atWesley Adam tempted to stop a red Chevrolet pickup for registration and seatbelt violations when Thompson the vehicle sped up and led the deputy on a 20-minute high-speed chase, according to the report. The chase went almost to the Alabama State line when the truck seemed to experience some mechanical problems and then the driver, Thompson, “bailed out” of the vehicle and was caught by the deputy after a short run, according to the report. Peggy Jo After a search of the truck, deputies say Turner they found meth and paraphernalia and arrested Turner, who was the passenger. Thompson is being charged with fleeing and attempting to elude, willful and wanton reckless driving, attached tag not assigned, possession of meth and possession of paraphernalia. Turner is being charged with possession of meth and paraphernalia. Both Thompson and Turner David Earl are being held at the Holmes County Jail until their first court appearance. Blackmon David Earl Blackmon, 42, of Dothan, was arrested after a high-speed chase in the early morning hours of May 9. According to the report, deputies were responding to a call reporting a robbery and that the suspect took off in a Ford Mustang. The deputies were on their way to the scene when they met the suspect’s car speeding west on State Road 90, according to the report. The suspect then sped up to 120 miles per hour, turned off his headlights in an attempt to lose the deputies and lost control of his car when he tried to turn onto Tobe Rutherford Road, finally coming to a stop in the woods. Blackmon then tried to get away on foot through the woods but was quickly caught. While being escorted back to the vehicle, Blackmon shook off the deputies for another short run through the woods before being caught again, according to the report. After deputies searched Blackmon, they found a large amount of cash, believed to belong to the victim, hidden in Blackmon’s crotch. Blackmon is being charged with fleeing and attempting to elude, willful and wanton reckless driving and robbery by sudden snatching and is being held at the Holmes County Jail until his first court hearing.

downtown Chipley of 69 years ago. era, Royce Pitts, Wesley Wilson and Don Harrell, also had the good fortune of winning new automobiles shortly after the end of World War II. Carl served three years in combat duty with the 9th Infantry Division (U.S. Army) in the European Theater of the war. Your writer called Mr. Young to verify the above information. He seemed to enjoy reminiscing of the years gone by and told me the following: “Perry, you recall that no new cars were sold to the public during the years of World War II — 1943, 1944 and 1945. They all went to the various U.S. military forces.” He continued, “I won the new Buick on a $1 ticket. I had many offers to sell the car, but it was the first vehicle I had ever owned and I was enjoying having possibly the only new automobile in Chipley.” He reported replacing Bill Minchin as manager of A&P when Bill resigned and joined Herman Smith in owing and operating the café just south of the grocery store, which today’s photograph shows at “Arnold’s Cafe.”

All of the above information, plus the recent renovations of the Piggly Wiggly store in Chipley, prompted today’s narrative. While talking to Carl Young by telephone, he mentioned the upgrading of the local Piggly Wiggly and the great asset it will prove to his son, Lyle’s, future in operating the store. He mentioned longtime store employees Buddy Mitchell, Mike Sapp and Jean Morris, whose tenure add to the success of the business. He verified the recent addition to the staff of Lyle’s stepson, Allen Corbin, who has joined the long established super market. A full-page advertisement for Piggly Wiggly in Chipley appears on page 393 in the “Heritage of Washington County” book. It gives the history of Carl Young and wife, Corinne, along with the two children, Lyle and Wava Young Prescott’s, contribution in starting a business that has survived many obstacles to bring it to its present operation. This advertisement, along

with many others, who the publisher required to be of historic and heritage value, has kept the book popular and being sold at the original price of $64.20.

Carl Young is aware that his wife graduated from Vernon High School in 1945, the year after my graduation. In my recent telephone conversation with him, I again told him that his future wife, Corinne, was one of the very few students at Vernon who ever drove the family car to school. Corinne did this occasionally. The vehicle was a sleek and shiny black Model A Ford coupe. In commenting on the beauty of automobile, Carl stated, “Yes, Mr. Walter and Mrs. Minnie Russ Carlisle took excellent care of that prized car!” Recently a person, who asked not to be identified gave the Prattler a stack of old canceled checks written by W.L. Wells (Chipley resident), drawn on Cawthon State Bank in DeFuniak Springs, dating from early January through August 1934. One of the checks, dated 4-251934, listed T.T. Camp as payee. The instrument was endorsed with a rubber stamp under Mr. Camp’s signature by “No. 304 The Great A & P Tea Co., 123 S. Sixth Street Chipley, Florida.” This confirms that an A&P Store has been in Chipley for 79 years or more. I will report that Hester is home from a 14-day stay in the hospital and is progressing well. Thanks for the email, calls, cards, visits, prayers and all other expressions of concern. See you all next week.

Letter to the EDITOR Dear Editor, In 2012, I had the option of running for president of the U.S. or accepting presidency of the New Hope School Reunion in Holmes County. I deliberated momentarily, considering two major factors: the monetary status of each entity and the prestige of holding either of the offices. I learned (1), that I would be facing a 16 trillion dollar debt as U.S. president and the New Hope School has more than $100 surplus; and (2), that Obama’s current approval rating is about 47 percent. Considering the fact that I was drafted in this job, I elected to go for New Hope School, hoping that if I do a decent job, I can at least top 47 percent approval. Therefore I’m asking for your help. At 10 a.m. May 25, the alumni of New Hope School will meet at the New Hope Community Center (fire station) at the crossroads of highways 2 and 179A, rain or shine. I’m gonna use our $100 surplus to buy fried chicken and ask that the alumni bring a covered dish. We will furnish drinks and plastics. We will eat at noon and go home later. Also bring memories, memorabilia, photos, etc. We’ll have a good time. For information, call me at 9562507 or Carolyn Gauss at 956-2366 (secretary/treasurer).

The Justice Department billing Medicare “for ineligible pa315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn

claims the Medicare fraud was occurring in 2001, three years before Gaetz and his partners sold the company. But Gaetz said he remained active in the management of Vitas only until 2000. He stepped aside that year when he was elected superintendent of the Okaloosa County School District. “I told my partners I was interested in becoming superintendent of schools, and when I got elected I said I was stepping back,” said Gaetz, who lives in Niceville. “I gave up all management responsibilities in 2000, though I continued as a shareholder and attend-

ed about four board meetings a year.” In 2004, Gaetz and fellow Vitas founders Hugh Westbrook and Esther Colliflower sold their stock in the company to Cincinnati-based Chemed for $406 million. The Justice Department alleges Vitas Hospice and Vitas Healthcare submitted claims for unneeded emergency services for patients or services that weren’t provided, the Associated Press has reported. The companies pressured their employees to submit more claims to get more revenue, the AP said. Gaetz said he is not clear on

the merits of the case against Vitas Hospice Services LLC, Vitas Healthcare Corp. and Chemed. “My understanding is that the owners and operators of the company are aggressively denying the complaint,” he said. Gaetz said he recognizes that different management priorities can evolve when a conglomerate takes over a company from its founders. “I would say there are people who are still caring employees of Vitas that were there when I was involved,” he said. “They are good people that I feel bad for, having to defend against this complaint.”

Company sued for fraud, including period Gaetz was vice-chairman FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — The Department of Justice is suing the hospice company founded by Florida’s Senate president, accusing it of submitting tens of millions of dollars in fraudulent Medicare claims for more than a decade, including while Don Gaetz was vice chairman of the board. Vitas Hospice and Vitas Healthcare submitted claims for emergency services for patients that

weren’t needed, weren’t provided, or were provided to patients who weren’t eligible under Medicare requirements, according to the DOJ. The companies set goals for the number of crisis-care days to be billed and pressured their employees to submit more claims so it would get more revenue, the lawsuit said. The agency said Medicare payments for crisis care can be hundreds of dollars greater than typi-

cal hospice care payments. Vitas is the largest U.S. hospice care chain, and its parent company Chemed Corp. said the claims go back to 2002, two years before it acquired the company. Gaetz told The Associated Press on Thursday he has not been involved with the management of the company for about 13 years, saying he gave up a management role in 2000 when he became Okaloosa County’s

school superintendent. He founded the company in the early 1980s with Rev. Hugh Westbrook, a Democratic activist, and Esther Colliflower, a nurse. Starting with an $1,800 investment, they turned Vitas into the largest company of its kind before selling it for millions to Chemed in 2004. That’s made Gaetz, R-Niceville, one of the Legislature’s wealthiest members with a net worth of about $25 million.

Hooked on Outdoors Anglers and divers have 19 new reefs to visit thanks to the efforts of the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association, the City of Mexico Beach and support from numerous organizations and members. On April 6, 62 reef modules worth more than $91,000 found new resting places off the shores of Mexico Beach. The city of Mexico Beach received a $60,000 grant from The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wildlife and Outdoor Sport Fish Restoration Life Scott Lindsey Fund and captainlindsey@ Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The remainder came from donations, memberships, fundraising and three fishing tournaments. Turkey season might be over but people are still going into the woods. Although it rarely happens, one or two are bitten every year by rattlesnakes and or cottonmouths. I got an email last week from a hunter that had a friend bitten while turkey hunting. The bite was obviously from a very large rattlesnake directly above his right ankle. The fang marks were wider apart than any bite I had ever seen. There are several lines of thought on what to do if bitten by a rattlesnake, but what this fellow did is not one of them. He said he sucked several ounces of poison out of his leg with a snake bite kit. He said the doctor told him he probably saved his life by doing so. Most doctors will say stay calm and definitely do not lance the bite marks. I don’t know about this business of staying calm. How do you stay calm after being bitten by a poisonous snake? Sort of like getting caught with someone else’s girlfriend; the time to stay calm has long past. It’s the time of year that people are going camping and of course snakes live in the woods, but don’t let that keep you at home. You just have to watch where you walk. I have a fool proof way to avoid snakes while in the woods, especially when someone is with me. While turkey hunting with Stan this year, especially in the dark, I would let him lead the way. I guess he thought I was lost and he was the guide. At any rate, I always walked a few paces behind him, especially in bushy areas. That way if he stepped on a log that had an attitude I would be healthy enough to run and get help. Just saying.

RETHINKING ‘RESCUES’ Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Winter is over. Trees and flowers are blossoming, birds are building nests and critters are being born. This also is the time of year when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission begins getting calls about “abandoned” animals people believe might be in need of rescue. However, these rescues might do more harm than good. After giving birth, adult wildlife must forage to provide food for themselves and their young. This means leaving their newborns for short periods. Having some basic knowledge of wildlife and the survival skills animals use can help avoid attempting to rescue animals that don’t need rescuing. A common target of misplaced rescues is baby deer, temporarily left in a safe place while their mothers feed nearby. Many people who find fawns mistakenly assume they have been abandoned, when, in reality, their parents are in the process of ensuring the infants’ survival. “In most cases, it is absolutely not in a fawn’s best interest to ‘rescue’ it,” said Allan Hallman, wildlife biologist at the FWC’s Camp Blanding Field Office. Hallman said what typically happens is someone discovers a young deer waiting for its mother. Often, those fawns are found in palmetto patches or in recently burned areas, where a doe has placed her new offspring for protection. These settings tend to help mask the fawn’s scent, thus providing good protection from the keen

nose of a predator. People discover these seemingly abandoned baby deer and become concerned when the parent is nowhere in sight. The would-be rescuers falsely believe the young animal will die unless they save it or take it to a wildlife rehabilitation center. “Unfortunately, actions of this kind usually have the opposite effect of a rescue,” Hallman said. “The stress created by changing the animal’s diet and surroundings is often fatal. “If the rescued fawn manages to survive, its return to the wild is practically impossible because of human imprinting or a lack of survival skills. If it had remained wild, the young deer would have learned the necessary survival skills from its mother,” Hallman said. Another way to help with the survival of young animals is not to feed them. Although that might sound odd, feeding can cause problems ranging from poor nutrition to dependence on humans for food and loss of foraging skills, all of which can decrease the animal’s chances of survival. “These animals have survived for a long time without our assistance. They can continue to survive without handouts,” Hallman said. The FWC recommends if you find a fawn or other baby animal, don’t touch it and quietly leave the area. Juvenile birds commonly are found on the ground at this time of year, looking a bit dazed or confused. The youngster might be trying to hide in tall grass or in low bushes to avoid being seen by predators. These young birds are going through a process called fledg-

ing, learning to fly now that they have adult feathers. During this process, the immature birds sometimes end up on the ground, where they may spend several days before they learn all their flight skills. “While on the ground, juvenile birds’ parents continue to watch over them, feeding them and helping them learn necessary survival skills. Help the parents by keeping any pets that may harm the young birds indoors during the spring and summer,” Hallman said. “Please don’t interfere in this crucial learning process.” Here are some important facts that can help determine if a baby bird needs rescuing. According to biologists, the only time a baby songbird should be rescued is when it is on the ground and has almost no feathers, when the bird is injured by pets or its tail is less than a half-inch long, and it cannot hop around on its own. If you find a baby songbird you are sure needs rescuing, and the nest is low enough for you to safely return it to its home, it’s OK to do that.

“Songbirds have almost no sense of smell, so the young birds can be returned to their nest without much chance of rejection,” Hallman said. The other approach, when you are sure birds need rescuing and care by a wildlife rehabilitator, is to place the baby in a tissue-lined box that has air holes in the top. Keep the box in a warm spot away from drafts and air conditioning and out of direct sunlight. Do not give it food or water. Call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in your area. The FWC’s North Central Region Office, 386-7580525, has a list of rehabbers. Many local veterinarians also work closely with wildlife rehabilitators and can be a good source of advice. “Remember that in most cases, it’s better to leave wildlife wild,” Hallman said. For more information on Florida’s wildlife and what you can do to help, go to and select “How You Can Conserve” and then “Wildlife Assistance – Injured or Nuisance Wildlife.”

Florida wildlife officials say they have found a new fish TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Florida wildlife officials said they have discovered a new species of fish in the southeastern U.S. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission scientists say the fish they have found is a new species of black bass. They have proposed naming it the Choctaw bass, with the

scientific name of Micropterus haiaka. The discovery was revealed at a meeting of the Southern Division of the American Fisheries Society earlier this year. The wildlife commission says scientists first noticed a new DNA profile while testing a bass specimen from the Chipola River

in 2007 as part of a broader genetic study of bass. “We didn’t set out to find a new species. It found us,” said Mike Tringali, head of the genetics laboratory at the wildlife commission’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. The new species later was found in coastal river systems in

Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle. The new fish’s name was chosen because its range overlaps the historic range of the Native American Choctaw, Tringali said. “Haiaka” is a Choctaw word meaning “revealed” or “manifest,” he said.

The American Fisheries Society still must approve the proposed scientific name. Scientists say the Choctaw bass is physically very similar to the spotted bass, and that’s why no one had previously distinguished the two different species, in spite of decades of bass research.

Doctors Memorial Golf Tournament held Special to Halifax Media BONIFAY — The fourth annual Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation Golf Tournament and Golf Ball Drop was held Friday, April 12 at Dogwood Lakes Golf Club. The tournament provided local golfers as well as out of town supporters an opportunity to vie for the top prize in a 4-man, best

ball scramble. Firstand second-place teams handed in scores of 16 under par. To break the tie, scores from the most difficult holes decided the tiebreaker. Taking third place was the Darby Bunch Team, consisting of players Rex Darby, Butch Staubs, Ron Gilbert and Don Dudick. Placing second was the team

from Shutz Insurance, with members David Shutz, Bo Hood, Ronnie Parker and Jimmy Miller. Finishing in first place was the Dogwood Lakes Team of Jamie Wells, Trevor Bush, Larry Urquhart and Chuck Mason. Ron Gilbert won the longest drive contest and Bonnie Smith was the closest to the pin. Winners received cash prizes and

golfers purchased mulligans for chances to win door prizes. After the tournament, the Golf Ball Drop took place outside on the putting green. Approximately 200 golf balls were dropped from an extended arm of a bucket truck over a hole. One ball, purchased by Rickey Callahan, rolled into the hole for the winner take all grand

prize of $500. The members of the Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation board would like to thank those who sponsored tee boxes, sponsored holes and donated door prizes for the event. The money that was raised from the tournament and the golf ball drop will be used to enhance and promote services provided by Doctors Memorial.


The Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation board members enjoy hosting the annual tournament.

Bucks, Devils reach 1A Final Four again From Staff Reports BRISTOL — The 2012-13 school year produced the most memorable athletic accomplishments in Liberty County history. But Bozeman can say the same, and on Friday night the Bucks denied the Bulldogs of reaching the Final Four in four different sports with a 6-3 win in the Region 2-1A baseball championship game. The Bucks, 19-9, rallied in the fourth inning, survived a wild bottom of the seventh and successfully defended their region crown. They will play a state semifinal Wednesday in Fort Myers. The Bulldogs ended 19-11, victimized for the second straight season by

a Bozeman team they had defeated on a no-hit game for the district title. Bozeman led 1-0 when Liberty County scored three runs after two outs in the bottom of the second on six consecutive hits. Starting pitcher Brandon Suttles went four innings and Reed Ruddick pitched until one out in the seventh. Garrett Hall finished. “We were on the ropes, our body language wasn’t great,” Bozeman coach Jeff Patton said. “We talked about it, almost like a prize fight. We were reeling, but we hit back.” Bubba Thompson’s two-run triple in the fourth scored Christian Dillahey and Michael Cullen to give the Bucks a 4-3 lead. Bozeman scored twice more in

the sixth. Cullen, Ruddick and Lucas Carter each singled to make it 5-3 and pinch-runner Cole Barefield stole home for Bozeman on a set play for the sixth run. The Bucks gained some revenge against Hayden Swier, two weeks after he pitched a no-hitter forcing them to travel in the region tournament. It was 6-3 in the bottom of the seventh when Bozeman began celebrating following a game-ending double play. But a catcher’s interference call negated the double play, necessitating closer Hall to come on for the final two outs. He got them. “I tried to stay out on the field as long as I could so we could catch our breath

a little bit,” Patton said of the interference ruling. “The guys were a little bit besides themselves. But our motto all year has been to keep playing.” The Bulldogs were hoping to continue the momentum of Final Four appearances in football, volleyball and softball, the latter producing a state championship earlier this week. Liberty County also placed 17th as a school in the 1A state track and final meet off the individual performances of Alex Marlowe. Instead it was Bozeman, which also made the region playoffs in both football and boys basketball that extended its brief athletic legacy. The Bucks meet Chiefland in their state semifinal.

Blue Devils advance in state tournament From Staff Reports BONIFAY — Ty Russ pitched a one-hitter in the Region 1-A championship game, the same score that the Blue Devils beat the Chiefs in their district championship game Friday night. The Blue Devils won 3-0. Russ struck out 14, yielding only a harmless single in the sixth inning. Russ also singled in the first inning, Kodi Russ had an RBI triple and Jordan Worthing’s sacrifice fly scored Kodi Russ. Holmes County, 22-7, made it 3-0 in the second on Corey Wilson’s two-out RBI single that scored Zach Cooley. “We jumped out early, then we kind of cooled off at the plate, but Ty just took the game over,” Holmes County coach Ron Dixon said. “He was in total control the whole game.” Ty Russ walked two batters and hit one, but ended the game with a flourish by striking out the side in the seventh. Holmes County, state runner-up a year ago, plays Trenton in a state semifinal today, May 15.

Controlling your cat’s hairballs Many pet owners love their feline friends, and will do whatever it takes to keep them relaxed and happy. This makes it especially alarming for pet-owners to witness their cat suffer from the discomforting symptoms that come with hairballs. Knowing how to prevent this common problem and how to treat it when it occurs is essential to keeping your cat healthy. “A hairball is an accumulation of hair

in the GI tract,” said James Barr, associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM).” It simply accumulates together and is usually contained within the stomach.” A hairball is formed when cats accidently ingest loose hair while cleaning their fur. The fur that is not digested accumulates in the stomach, forming a hairball.  While clinical signs of hairballs may

frequently brushing the cat and discouraging it from excessively grooming itself. “There are over-thecounter medications that are designed for cats with hairballs to aid in digestion,” said Barr. “As always, if there are concerns for your cat’s health, please call your veterinarian for guidance.”
