CHIPLEY â€” The Chipley Garden Club got up close and personal with some of Floridaâ€™s beneficial and friendly garden snakes at the Sunny Hills Community Center in Sunny Hills on Wednesday. Scott Sweeney, park specialist at Falling Waters State Park, shared his appreciation and love of the slithery creatures and provided the group with useful information concerning the six venomous snakes that live in the area â€” eastern diamondback, pigmy and canebrake rattlesnakes, copperhead, cottonmouth and coral snakes. â€œYour cute little gardening gloves offer absolutely no protection from snake bite. Never put your hands anywhere you canâ€™t see clearly,â€? Sweeney said. PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Sweeney said snakes Above: Scott Sweeney displays one of his little friends.

LYNN HAVEN â€” After the â€œmost intensive investigation in recent memory,â€? The Bay County Sheriff â€™s Office has announced the arrests of three people, including a Washington County man, suspected of tying up, torturing and killing a Lynn Haven nonagenarian. The BCSOâ€™s Criminal Investigations Division has not rested since a neighbor found the body of Wallace Scott, 90, in his home on PiDAVID CHALLENDER netree Road April 6, Sheriff Frank McKeithen said on April 15. Deputies worked countless hours, traveled hundreds of miles and worked with 22 other law enforcement agencies in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. â€œThis was a whodunit,â€? said Capt. Jimmy Stanford, who leads the CID. The investigation led deputies to arrest David Challender of Caryville and James Jeffries and Ashley Griffith, both of Hartford, Ala., on April 14 and charge them each with an open count of murder. Only Griffith has had a bond hearing; she is being held without bond. Challender and Jeffries were held in the Holmes County jail. Investigators also arrested two of Scottâ€™s former caretakers, a word they said they were using loosely, the day his body was discovered on suspicion of stealing and using Scottâ€™s credit card and checkbook. Sherri Mercer and Deborah Cupp have been charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and principal to fraudulent use of a credit card, respectively. Mercer had endeared herself to Scott, and she was a beneficiary in his will, investigators said. Scott had reported the fraudulent charges to BCSO investigators in March, and he had an appointment with an attorney to remove her from his will on April 8. Scott was killed on April 4. He was beaten into submission and tied up in a bedroom in his house. The suspects allegedly hurt Scott in order to motivate him to tell them PIN numbers to his bank accounts, Stanford said. â€œOne of the defendants used the word torture,â€? Stanford said.

Miss Florida International visits Chipley Kiwanis Special to the News CHIPLEY — The Chipley Kiwanis Club was visited by Charity Newsom on Tuesday. Newsom will represent the state of Florida this summer in competition in Chicago as the state’s Miss Florida International. She is from Chipley and has graduated from Chipola College and re-enrolled to pursue another course of study. As Miss Florida International, Newsom picked Literacy as the platform she will promote. Newsom feels that reading and comprehension are essential to leading a useful and productive life. She informed the club that, in the United State, there are 21 million illiterate persons and another 45 million who are moderately illiterate. As part of her effort to promote literacy, Newsom has started a program she calls Project RED (Read Every Day). The goal of Project RED is to give a book to every first grade student in Chipley and Vernon. Once she has accomplished that
objective, she will expand the project to also include Marianna. The benefits of reading at an early age include much better performance in school and ultimately a more productive life. Reading is key to all other learning activities. Newsom pointed out if a child reads just 15 minutes a day, he or she will be exposed to more than 1 million words in a year. To learn more about Newsom, her role as Miss Florida International, or about Project RED, visit her Facebook page at Miss Florida International — Charity Newsom, or visit her blog at newsomcharity.wordpress. com. The Chipley Kiwanis Club is holding a Pancake Supper Fundraiser on May 23. All proceeds from the pancake supper will go back to various organizations in the community to help our residents. The mission of the Kiwanis Club is to change to world one child and one community at a time. Help the club help the community by attending the Pancake Supper.

Chipley police arrest Pace man on drug charges From Staff Reports CHIPLEY — A Pace man was charged with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia after a traffic stop on April 27, according to a Chipley Police Department news release.

fied of the discovery. After receiving his Miranda warning, Huie told police the paraphernalia was his and said he might have some methamphetamine in his wallet, according to police. Officers searched Huie’s wallet and discovered an amount of methamphetamine in a small plastic bag. James Huie was taken to the Washington County Jail.
slaying from page A1 “That term is supported by the evidence,” Maj. Tommy Ford said. They declined to give details about Scott’s injuries or the cause of death. Stanford said Scott did not give up his PINs and “put up one heck of a fight,” overcoming one assailant before being overpowered by the two males. Several firearms were taken from Scott’s house, and some of them were recovered during the investigation. Investigators don’t have any evidence Mercer knew of Scott’s plans to remove her as a beneficiary, but she knew he was aware of the unauthorized credit card use, Stanford said. She has been ruled out as being one of the people in his home when he was killed, Stanford said. Deputies continue to investigate her connection to the homicide. “She knew that Mr. Scott was not happy with the credit card use,” Stanford said. Mercer served prison time for a battery conviction. In that incident, she stabbed her boyfriend with a scissors, Stanford said. Challender is Mercer’s son, Jeffries is her nephew and Griffith is Jeffries’ girlfriend, Stanford said. Jeffries and Griffith are both 28, and Challender is 27. They were identified as the primary suspects in Scott’s slaying on Friday and deputies began a manhunt to locate them. Challender and Jeffries are also suspected in several burglaries in Alabama and the Atlantaarea, and both had served
time in prison, Stanford said. Challender had apparently told people he would die before he let police arrest him, Stanford said. “We had very credible information they were not going to surrender,” Stanford said. McKeithen and Ford concealed themselves in a vehicle driven by a cooperator in order to get close enough to arrest one suspect. Other deputies hid in the trunk, Stanford said. One suspect was just out of reach from two guns after his arrest. Each suspect was found in possession of Scott’s property. Scott was a retired engineer and a former Navy pilot who once survived a plane crash, according to family members. He owned several properties in Bay County, and his assets were worth abput $785,000 in 2010, according to court records. “He was pretty well off,” Stanford said. The investigation into potential suspects at the periphery of Scott’s killing continues, but Sheriff McKeithen expressed confidence that the primary suspects were all behind bars. He praised his deputies as well as the numerous law enforcement officers for their tireless effort and outstanding cooperation when information about the suspect’s locations was changing frequently. “Bay County should be proud of their law enforcement,” McKeithen said. “If something ever happened, God forbid, to my family, I would hope these guys were trying to catch the person that did it.”
council from page A1 task them to start looking for funding,” Miner said. “Tasking and hiring are two different things.” He said the city would be spending no money up front in the process. “Mr. Bruce has got connections,” Council Member Karen Rustin said. “He works with Tom Bryant, and Tom also has contacts in companies that he can bring to the table.” She also said Bruce went
“above and beyond” in working with the city and the Legislature to get the line-item appropriation for $400,000. The consultants get paid by taking a percentage of the grant money they acquire for the city, and that percentage is negotiated between the consulting firm and the city. H. Douglas Bruce first appeared before the council on Feb. 20, when he was asked by Mayor Linda Cain to explain different ways the city could raise money to update the city’s aging water system and to extend water service to south of Interstate 10. The first step, Bruce said, is to secure the services of a consulting firm. He recom-
mended the city publish a Request For Qualifications and begin the process of searching for a consultant. The council agreed and voted to proceed with the preparation of an RFQ, and Thursday night, the council heard presentations from firms that had responded to the advertisement. During Bruce’s presentation, he showed the council a slide of the state legislature’s current budget, which includes a $400,000 line-item for the city of Chipley to use toward water system repairs. The budget item was there because Bruce had arranged for Council Member Lee Dell Kennedy and Miner
to travel to Tallahassee and meet with the budget committee to discuss the city’s water system problems. The budget has been passed by the House and the Senate and next will go to Gov. Rick Scott for final approval. Cain said the governor’s office had contacted the city for more information about the request. “We should know in a few weeks whether or not he signs off on it,” the mayor said of the budget. Mayor Cain abstained from voting on any of the consulting firms because of a conflict of interest. She said she had relatives that worked for one of the firms,
and therefore she did not participate in the selection process. “We see our role as providing a way to get funding for these important projects,” Bruce said of his consulting firm. Bruce discussed not only getting water service to south of Interstate 10, but also repairing and replacing leaky pipes to make the city’s water system more efficient. He pointed out that in 2012, the city lost almost 30 percent of its water because of leaks. “If you had a gas station and you lost 30 percent of your gas, you’d go out of business really quick,” Bruce said.

gardens — insects, rodents, birds, frogs, lizards and other snakes. The right snake in the garden can be very beneficial. He showed several beautiful and colorful snakes including corn snakes, king snakes and an oak snake. Snakes are not naturally aggressive but will strike if they feel threatened. A good way to get rid of a snake is to remove its food by keeping lawns manicured, avoid piles of wood and junk, clear out the nooks and crannies and keep landscaping and gardens neat and weed-free. He suggested the noise and activity of gardening should encourage snakes to leave the area; however, if you see one, don’t try to pick it up, just back away and it will probably move on. Sweeney provided several helpful handouts, and although there were a few “eek” moments when
his “little friends” were out of their bags, the garden club enjoyed learning about one of the most understood and feared creatures in the world. Before the program, the last regular business meeting was held.

Censorship not conducive to education Just when you thought book banning was a relic from a bygone age, recent headlines reveal that an outraged parent is attempting to get “The Diary of Anne Frank” banned from a school library for being “pornographic.” A simple online search will turn up many stories of SHANNON people attempting to SEYLER ban books, films and Faithfully Yours media. Before moving here, I lived in a city where someone was aggressively trying to ban books from schools. Happily, that effort failed. I read whatever I wished while growing up and am deeply thankful that my parents didn’t censor my reading material. In my youth, I turned to writers ranging from Julius Caesar to Jack Kerouac in an attempt to improve my own education. I realized early on that my education isn’t the state’s responsibility but mine. That was made abundantly clear to me in third grade when I became part of a New England experimental educational program. I was required to select my own assignments and reading material, taking an active role in my education rather than blindly following a preset curriculum. It’s among the best memories of my otherwise tedious early education. I recall only one book that was banned while I was in school: “The Communist Manifesto.” When I discovered it was banned from my school library, I went to the city library and promptly checked it out. It’s human nature to be curious, and nothing provokes curiosity like censorship. If you want to drive up any author’s book sales, just get the book banned.
NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK Aging With Dignity Based in Tallahassee, Aging With Dignity is a national non-profit group working to ensure dignity for aged and critically ill individuals. They actively promote the Five Wishes document. Formerly a Florida-only initiative, Five Wishes is a package combining a living will and health care power of attorney that went nationwide in 1998 and is now legally recognized by over 40 states. It allows adults to determine how they wish to be cared for during times of serious illness or impending death. Aging with Dignity educates the public about issues facing the ill, aged and disabled. They work toward improving end-of-life care and helping people retain dignity and control when confronted by aging and terminal illnesses. Aging With Dignity www.agingwithdignity.org P.O. Box 1661 Tallahassee FL 32302-1661 (850) 681-2010 Sometimes censorship is driven by religion. I remember certain books, films and practices being banned by local churches. Pastors got in an uproar about films including “Baby Doll,” “Godspell,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “The Last Temptation of Christ,” “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” and more. Some churches wouldn’t allow congregation members to view these movies. Once, after reminiscing about such bans, my husband and I had our own personal forbidden film festival, watching many of these shows back to back. We weren’t offended by any of them. In fact, we just watched “Godspell” again a few days ago. There are people in this world with no self-control. They can’t just walk away from something offensive, but want to enact legislation so nobody else can see it, either. If you don’t want to see a movie, then don’t buy the ticket, but you don’t have the right to tell others that they can’t view it. If same-sex marriage offends you, then don’t enter into one. Never before has the motto “Mind your own business”
seemed so appropriate and so needed. I recently heard about a professor who opened a lecture with a bold proclamation that a certain popular viewpoint is wrong. Audience members got up and stormed out without giving him a chance to explain himself. He did it to make a point, which is that nobody wins by leaving a discussion before it even gets started. He was demonstrating what’s wrong with reconciling differences these days — people aren’t doing it. Don’t join the ranks of the perpetually offended. If a book bothers you, don’t buy it. If a TV show offends you, you know where the “off” button is. Your teenager won’t die if he reads a Chuck Palahniuk novel. If you don’t like a religion, political party or organization, don’t join it. If something offends you to the point that you can no longer remain silent, then write an intelligent reply, expressing yourself like an articulate, rational adult. Regardless of our religious, political or aesthetic differences, it’s crucial to learn how to voice objections without resorting to censorship.
