The recommended time to prune trees and most shrubs is in the winter whentheplants are dormant. An exception to this rule is that shrubs that bloom in the Spring should only be pruned in the late Spring shortly after blooming. McMillian Announces For Sheriff Deputy Sheriff Quinn McMillian announces his can- didacy on the Republican ticket for Sheriff of Walton County. Quinn, a native of Walton County, is 36 years old and married to the former Rebecca Harper of Tallahassee. He was educated in the Walton County school system and Pensacola Junior College, and is a veteran of two years active military service. McMillian has completed over 450 hours of formal law enforcement training and is presently on leave of absence from his duties of Deputy Sheriff for the duration of his campaign.

"l feel that my training, experience and proven ability best qualify me as your candidate for Sheriff of Walton County". : . .HALL Raymond Hall Candidate For Clerk Of Court Raymond "Ray" Hall is the Democratic candidate for Clerk of the Circuit Court of Walton County in the November 2, 1976 election. Hall, store manager and budget manager for several years with Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, was born in Walton County and attended schools in this area until his completion of his senior year at Walton High School in 1954. He left'this area to attend Troy University and majored in Business Administration. It was during his college days that be met his wife, Jeanette Browder of Troy. Jeanette has been a fourth grade teacher at Freeport for the last several years. She enjoys teaching and plans to stay in education. The Halls have four sons - Lance, 20, who is employed by Save-A- Stop; Kelley, 17; David, 13, and Joe, 12. The younger three attend school at Freeport. The family attends Freeport Presbyterian Church, where they are all members. Raymond's parents are Elli- son and Mary Hall of the Alaqua Community. Raymond holds membership in various organizations but he would like to mention in addition to the Freeport Pres- byterian Church, his affiliation with Shrine and Masons. Hall received most of his experience and school in man- ,agement with Goodyear: However, he , has also had experience with personal ownership. He was owner of Freeport Standard until he sold it several months ago. He also was co-owner of a business in plumbing, heating and electri- cal appliances and a small dress shop in Alabama. At present he is employed by Nuclear Power in Panama City. Hall says he would like to put his abilities to work for what he considers the best place in the world, Walton County. From the time he sought higher education and those days gaining experience in the business world in Alabama and Florida, Hall's desire has been to be a public servant in the county he grew up in and loves so dearly. In the 1954 "War Whoop" Raymond Hall's prophecy was that he would become Mayor of DeFuniak Springs. Hall would not like to challenge Mayor Goodwin, but be says, "he sure feels a need for a change in the Circuit Clerk's office". He says he would like to work with the County and Circuit Judge and the new Sheriff in "putting the clerk's office back in order and open to you, the people". "This office belongs to you", Hall says. "I will be only a servant and will never forget this. This office will extend a cordial smile and a helping hand to those who enter."

What is happening to- day? We have none of the above. Was it an act of Nature God and/or man? Can it be solved or resolved? Confu- sion, contradiction and dis- agreement among most of our authorities, News Media, Lob- byists, Unscrupulous and/or powerful influential criminal elements just add to and con- tinue our problems on vital issues. Many authorities and most news media journalists contradict themselves, or at least leave their options open so they can't be boxed in or labeled for or against'issues, etc., even before the one ar- ticle or speech is completed. A balanced budget is out while tobacco, alcohol, gamb- ling and narcotics are pro- moted instead of demoted, by those who have the power and influence. The above cost this country and any other country untold misery, division etc. and also untold billions 5f dollars, The communists destroy and/or alter the facts frequent- ly and also facts and figures on the above in America can and are being altered by those who get the heavy peaches and cream, and furthermore the promotion of lower ethical and moral standards serves to bring down an individual, group or nation; especially the Church and it elevates the un- scrupulous in various ways. Everyone knows some of this is true. Yes I know and can prove all of this when given the opportunity, in an open debate or discussion. Hope to continue.
