CHIPLEY — The Community Redevelopment Agency project to revamp an alleyway in downtown Chipley might be permanently stalled, City Council members learned Thursday at the council workshop. “The city’s attorney has been unable to contact one property owner, and without their permission, we are severely limited in what we can do in the alley,” said Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett. City Attorney Michelle Taggart said she was certain she had the right address for the property owner, but they were not responding to the city’s attempts to communicate. “If we can’t get the alleyway deeded to the city, then we can’t touch the dirt,” Everett said. The project dates back a few years,

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — The Ward 2 and 3 seats on the Chipley City Council, currently held by Kevin Russell and Lee Dell Kennedy, will

be up for election on Aug. 6. The council was to approve a resolution setting the city election at Tuesday’s city council meeting. The meeting occurred after press time on Tuesday, but the resolution was discussed at Thursday’s council workshop. “It’s that time of year again,” Mayor Linda Cain said. “Seems like it was just here.” This year, the election will be held Aug 6, the first Tuesday

Any person who meets the qualifications set forth in the city code for holding elected office and who wants to qualify as a candidate for the city council will have from 8 a.m. June 10 until 4 p.m. June 14 to qualify with the city clerk. Polls will be open at city hall from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In other business, the council learned that the historic water tower is set for demolition on May 22. “They will be shutting down the road about 7 p.m., and they should be finished with the project enough by 10 p.m. or midnight they can reopen the roads,” City Administrator Dan Miner said. The city council declared on March

and the CRA planned to renovate the alleyway for shoppers by installing a new walkway that drains easily, new lighting for safety and convenience, light landscaping and renovation of the rear walls of the buildings. A “drip” system could be installed to irrigate plants. Murals also have been under consideration. The walkway primarily would be intended for access to the businesses, not as a thruway, and the alleyway would be eligible for a CRA façade grant to fund renovations, Everett said. However the property needed to belong to the city — the CRA cannot improve privately owned property, Everett said. “We can still patch up some of the buildings, and I would like for us to still consider the murals,” Everett said, adding that he would bring some examples of artwork from various mural artists to a future council workshop for consideration. “We can also do the murals on plywood then attach them to the walls; that way when they need freshened up, you can just take them down and work on them,” Everett said. He also said solar lighting should still be installed in the alleyway as a safety issue. “We still have quite a bit of traffic in the alley, especially for Zumba classes,” Everett said.

The council members decided because of the prohibitive expense of restoring the tower, the best thing to do would be take it down. Renovation of the tower was estimated to cost between $175,000 and $200,000, while demolition is expected to cost $24,200. Russell was tasked by the mayor to lead a committee to design a new city park, which will be built at the site where the water tower currently stands. Isler Demolition has been hired to take down the water tower, which was constructed in the early 1930s.

Photograph brings back 1940s memories Recently, our daughter-in-law, Donna West Wells, compiled a collage of new and old pictures for her grandmother, Ola Pearl Smith Johnson, who recently became a resident of an area convalescent center. She made copies for me of the ones regarding Chipley, knowing some would ultimately be incorporated into a “Prattle” column. She told me the old pictures PERRY’S were obtained PRATTLE from Kyle Perry Wells This historic photograph depicts Ray, Gordon’s friend and Chipley High School the assistance of a magnifying classmate, who has already glass. completed a full military career One of those storefronts that and is now living and working in immediately piqued my interest San Antonio, Texas. was the one with the sign near I had known of Kyle’s interest in the area’s history and heritage. the top of the building listing the business as “FOOD (A&P) He, along with brother, Danny, STORE.” This appears to be and sister, Nelda, own their the space presently occupied by own “Heritage of Washington Robert Sapp’s Coin and Jewelry County Book,” thanks to their parents, Ralph and Marlene Ray, Broker Store and the present Salvation Army Thrift Store, who made the mass purchase which has been there for many soon after the books were first years. released in June 2006.

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. Call the writer at 6381016 or email me at perry1000@ to purchase one of the 35 remaining books. 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).

Three arrested after two separate high-speed pursuits


315-4435 | @TomMnwfdn A lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice asserts that Vitas Hospice Services, a company founded in 1983 by a group that included state Senate President Don Gaetz, submitted fraudulent bills for Medicare payment. The lawsuit alleges that for 12 years Vitas “violated the False Claims Act and misspent tens of millions of taxpayer dollars” by billing Medicare “for ineligible patients and inflated levels of care,” a Department of Justice news release said.

Gaetz said Thursday that he has not been contacted about the complaint and was not a party to it. ”I have no direct knowledge of the complaint that’s been made, but it is heartbreaking to see a company I helped found involved in something like this,” he said. Vitas is the largest hospice care chain in the country. The Justice Department 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 attended 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.

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.

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

Barr. “ If there seems to be an abnormal amount of hairballs produced, then steps should be taken to prevent the pet from ingesting large amounts of hair or to help the hair move through the GI tract before it accumulates together.” Pet owners can also help reduce the severity of their cat’s hairballs by

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.”
