COWORKERS AS YOU
WOULD TREAT CHRIST
Text: Ephesians 6:9
General Eisenhower used to il-
lustrate leadership with a piece of
string. He laid a piece of string
out on the table and said, "Pull it
and it will follow wherever you
wish. Push it and it will go no-
where at all. It's just that way
when it comes to leading people.
They need to follow a person who
is leading by example...You do
not lead by hitting people over
the head-that's assault, not leader-
Jesus Christ was and is the
King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
He was and is the creator and sus-
tainer of the universe. He was
always with God from the begin-
ning. Jesus Christ, the Word, is
God. Yet He was born in a barn
and slept in a feed trough. He was
a carpenter's son for 30 years be-
fore entering into full time minis-
Though He could have come
making demands,Christ led by ex-
ample in humility. The principles
of the servant/master relationship
in scripture can be applied to the
manager/worker relationship we
have today. The worker is to serve
as if serving Christ Himself. The
manager, according to Barnes, is
to demonstrate, "toward their ser-
vants the same spirit...the same
kindness, fidelity, and respect for
the will of God?' that the servant
demonstrates toward the-master.
Christ was willing to wash
His disciples' dirty, nasty feet in
humility even though He was and
is their Lord and King. The man-
ager should serve by example in
humility as well. Lead them as
if the very eye of Christ is on you,
which it is. Our prayer should
"Lord, when I am wrong,make
me willing to change; when I am
right, make me easy to live with.
So strengthen me that the power
of my example will far exceed the
authority of my rank."

Assistant Supervisor of Elections,
A private, national organization has
mailed a second round of misleading
voter registration applications to a
number of residents in Calhoun and
Liberty counties, once again creating
confusion for some people who have
received the forms, say elections
supervisors in both counties.
The applications, mailed from
a "Voter Participation Center"
with a Massachusetts post office
box for a return address, look
official, said Liberty County
Supervisor of Elections Marcia The w
Wood, "but we want our residents "To c
to know that this mailing did not legal r

y's phone number is

office of the county supervisor of elections.
"Anything from one of our offices will be clearly marked with
our respective name, county and address," says Wood, who, along
with Laramore, invites anyone who receives a questionable piece of
mail or who is uncertain about his or her voter registration status to
immediately call or visit the county elections office. Liberty County's
phone number is (850) 643-5226 and Calhoun's is 674-8568.
Both supervisors are unhappy that the sponsor of the registration
drive, Women Voices, Women Vote, of Washington, D.C., compiled a
mailing list from unknown sources that is full of mistakes, including
names of deceased voters.
Laramore says she can only imagine the grief felt by the families
of two deceased voters for whom the applications were addressed.
"And those are the ones that I know about," she said, since family
members of those voters returned the applications to the Florida
Division of Elections with notations that the voters had passed away
long ago, one of them more than 15 years. Elections officials around
Florida and in other states have reported similar incidents, including
an application for a person who died 45 years ago.
"We don't know where they got their mailing list," said Wood,
adding that she was unaware that another set of applications had been
mailed until she started getting phone calls from puzzled voters.
Joe Goode, executive director of Women's Voices, Women Vote,
did not return a phone call to answer questions about the mailing.

Bessie Wynn celebrates 100 years
from wife to mother to matriarch
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
More people today are reaching the century
mark but it's unlikely many do with style like
Blountstown's Bessie Wynn.
She marked her 100th year of life with a
big party Saturday night at the W.T. Neal
Civic Center, where she was congratulated by
friends, family and former
employers, who consider
her family after the years
she spent cooking, sev. ing
and cleaning for theirs.
The city of Blount- '
stown issued a procla-
mation declaring April
5 Bessie Wynn Day.
Before reading it, Cit3
Manager James Woods
described Miss Bessie
as "A beloved lady
who served the com-
munity and the Lord
for 100 years."
stood out in a regal purple
outfit, topped by one of the many hats in
her collection of over 200.
She has not had an easy life but it has been
a joyful one. "The Lord has fixed it where I
have lived pretty good," she says.
Born in Carr in 1908, she and her family
later moved to Bristol. When she was 11,
they made their home in Blountstown.
Within a year, she lost her mother. "Her
mother drowned in the Apalachicola River,
returning from a fishing trip," explains her
daughter, Annie Moore. She fell in when she
went back to help a woman who was strug-
gling to get across a log carrying a string of
Miss Bessie was the oldest daughter and
one of six children. She turned to care for
her family until she had her own after meet-

She never remarried, although
she had offers. She responded to
one proposal by telling the man, "I
don't want a husband and tell all the rest I
don't want them!"
She feared bringing a new man into the
family would harm her bond with her chil-
dren. She was even more blunt with another
suitor, explaining that if they got married and
he created any problems for her children,
"I'd have to kill you and I'd go to Raiford
and you'd go to the grave." After that, "He

Carpenter bees are buzzing
March usually brings the first
sightings of carpenter bees in
north Florida. While they do
resemble the well-known bumble
bee, they differ in appearance and
Carpenter bees are large and
robust. The upper surface of
their abdomen is bare and shiny
black. Bumble bees have a hairy
abdomen with at least some
Bumble bees usually nest in
the ground whereas carpenter
bees tunnel into wood to lay their
eggs. Carpenter bees are so named
because they excavate galleries in
wood to create nest sites. They do
not actually consume the wood.
Rather, they feed on pollen and
nectar making them important
pollinators of flowers and trees.
Bare, unpainted or weathered
softwoods are preferred especially
redwood, cedar, cypress and
pine. Painted or pressure-treated
wood is much less susceptible
to attack. Common nesting sites
include eaves, window trim,
siding, wooden shakes, decks and

Carpenter bees spend the
winter as adults within their old
nest tunnels. After emerging in
the spring, the adults mate and the
female begins excavating a gallery
with her mandibles mouthpartss)
at the rate of one inch in six days.
The gallery has a clean-cut, round
entrance hole that may be up to
1/2 inch in diameter.
Damage from a pair of bees is
slight, but if the gallery is used
over several years, damage can
be more severe. Once the gallery
is completed, the female begins
to provision a brood cell with
bee bread, a mixture of pollen
and regurgitated nectar. After
laying an egg on top of the mass
the female closes the cell with
chewed wood pulp. Each female
may have six to eight sealed brood
cells in a linear row in one gallery
as she backs outward.
Larvae develop on the pollen/
nectar food provided, with the
life cycle completed in 30 to 40
days. After the new adults chew
through the cell partitions and
emerge, they collect and store
pollen in the existing galleries
which they use for hibernation
during the winter. The previous
year's adults die. They are not
social insects and there is one
generation per year.
Males do not drill tunnels, but

they are territorial. Male carpenter
bees can be quite aggressive, often
hovering in front of people who
are around the nests. The males
are quite harmless, however,
since they lack stingers. Female
carpenter bees can inflict a painful
sting but seldom do unless they
are handled or harassed. The
males can be distinguished from
females by a whitish spot on the
front of the face.
The best way to deter the bees
is to paint all exposed wood
surfaces, especially those which
have a history of being attacked.
Wood stains and preservatives
are .less reliable than painting,
but will provide some degree
of repellency versus bare wood.
Preventive sprays applied to
wood surfaces are effective only
for a short period, meaning that
you would have to repeat the
application about every two to
Once nesting activity has
begun, damage may be reduced
by treating the entrance holes
with an insecticidal spray or dust.
Products containing carbaryl
(Sevin), cyfluthrin or a number
of other pyrethroids (bifenthrin,
permethrin, etc.) also are labeled
for use against carpenter bees.

A talent for sewing and home-
making kept her busy working
for others in the area. Annette
Adams recalls how she would
come home to find Miss Bessie
still there, mending clothes for
her sons when she could have al-
ready left for the day. And when
she was cooking, Adams' two
sons and their friends were sure
to be there for lunch, especially
if it involved her delicious bread
Her daughter Annie says they
learned a lot from their mother.
"She taught us how to work and
not let someone else take care of
you. We went to work early, not
because we had to but because
we wanted to." At that time,
some 60 or-so years ago, work
for kids included babysitting,
house cleaning and picking cot-
ton and working in the tobacco
When her mother took in
laundry, the children would sup-
ply the water. "Monday was
wash day and before we went to
school we would have to pump
three tubs full of water and do
three more when we came home
for lunch," she said.
Miss Bessie still lives in the
Boyd Street home where she
raised her children. She worked
until the age of 87, when her last
Nowadays, she enjoys visit-
ing, talking on the phone and
sorting through her hat collec-
tion as she recalls how each one
came to her. Many are extrava-
gant, with feathers and rhine-
When someone placed a new
hat on her to see how it looked re-
cently, she was quick to respond,
"That's not how I wear them!"
She reached up and tugged the
brim to the left. "I kind of pull
them to the side," she said.
And who's going to argue
with her? After 100 years on
this earth, Miss Bessie knows
just how things should be.

Their pitcher Tad Scott (6-1-1, 1.34 ERA)
Altha (13-3; 2-1, 2-2A) only had five players
to reach base in the game.
With one out in the first inning, Tad Scott
reached on a throwing error by the third baseman
and advanced to second on the play. However,
a groundout to end the inning would end his
opportunity to score:
Bozeman (11-0; 5-0, 2-2A) scored 2 runs off
of one hit in the fourth inning. An error by right
fielder Tony Golden allowed the leadoff batter
to reach. The next batter doubled to right field
to score the lead runner. A one-out sacrifice bunt
scored the other run.
Jake Edenfield reached in the fifth inning after
being hit by a pitch and he advanced to second on
a passed ball. But three consecutive strikeouts
ended the inning.
The Bucks padded their lead in the fifth
inning. With 2 outs Scott hit a batter and then
the next two batters hit back-to-back doubles.
Golden's second error of the night in the right
field allowed the fourth run to score. A single
plated Bozeman's final run.
In the sixth inning Josh McIntosh drew a
one-out walk. He moved to second on an errant
pick-off.throw by the pitcher. McIntosh tagged
up at second and moved third on Scott's fly-out
to right field. Noah Byler's pop up to the third
baseman ended the scoring threat.
With one out Jake Edenfield was issued a
walk. Keith Kirkpatrick followed by hitting a
Texas-league single to left field to move Edenfield
to second base. With two outs Edenfield stole
third base but Gary Chew struck out swinging to
end the scoring threat and the game.
Kirkpatrick's single in his 3 plate appearances
was the Wildcats only hit of the game.
Earlier that same afternoon the junior
varsity Wildcats (5-6) faced the same outcome.
Playing without several sick starters and facing
a Bozeman team comprised of juniors and
sophomores, Altha found themselves on the
wrong end of a 21-0 score.
The Wildcats had only one batter to reach
base. In the second inning Will Rogers swung
at a third strike and a passed ball by the catcher
allowed him to reach first. Afielding error by the
first baseman allowed Will to advance to second
base. Another passed ball by the catcher, found
Will on third. But a strike out ended the inning
and Altha's scoring opportunity.

including a drink. The last junior varsity game
of the season is at 4 p.m. (CT) and the first pitch
of the varsity game scheduled for 6 p.m. (CT).
This Tuesday the Wildcats try to avenge the
loss to Bozeman at "The Cotton Patch" with
action getting underway at 7 p.m. (CT). Then on
Wednesday they will travel across the Big River
to take on Liberty County at 7 p.m. (CT).

Ninety feet is the distance Gary Chew

to tie the game, 3-3. A few inches is all batter
Noah Byler needed to have his hit fall in front
of the centerfielder. But those two needs went
unfulfilled as Chew was stranded at third as
Byler's line drive found the centerfielder's glove.
For the second time this season the ninth-ranked
