CHERYL WITHROW
Managing Editor
It is official.
Bobby Haddock was sworn in
as sheriff of Washington County
in ceremonies Tuesday morning
at the Ag Center in Chipley.
Haddock's brother, Mark,
who is also a law enforcement
officer, handled master of cere-
monies responsibilities through-
out, introducing such notables
as retired Washington County
judge, Perry Wells; former
state attorney, Jim Appleman;
and current Washington County
judge, Colby Peel.
Wells assessed Haddock's
campaign for the office of sher-
iff.
"I like to see an aggressive
campaign," he said. "He did
things honest and right. He left
no stone unturned. Join us now
in wishing him well and we'll all
be ahead of the game."
Appleman presented Had-
dock with a plaque signifying
his 14 years of service as an
investigator for his department.
Peel gave some advice.

Managing Editor
The election, Northwest Florida
Community Hospital lease, Hur-
ricane Ivan, Steven Lee shooting,
troops coming home from Iraq,
bombs at a Grassy Pond home, Ver-
non High School $5 million over
budget, all played a significant role
in defining news in Washington
County in 2004.
Election 2004
This was the election that
seemed like it would never end.

at ceremonies Tuesday morning. His wife, Laura, holds the Bible,
while Judge Colby Peel administers the oath of office.


it's enjoyable, but it's a job," he
advised. "You need the support
of your family, your friends and
your employees."
Haddock gave the glory for
his life and his election to his
Lord and Savior.
"We were truly blessed as a
family," he said. "I thank God
for the way were raised, with
discipline and Jesus Christ."
He continued by thanking all
those that supported him in his.
bid for election, explaining the
sheriff's office is his new fam-
ily.
Haddock also encouraged the


public to give deputies credit for
a job well done.
He said, "When you see a
deputy, give him a pat of the
back.
"The timesare few and far
between that a law enforcement
officer gets an atta-boy. They
need your encouragement and
support."
Haddock concluded by dis-
cussing the meaning of public
servant.
"The key word is servant," he
said. "I will model my public
service after the best servant
there ever was, Jesus Christ."


At the national level, a war of
words and military service polluted
the airways for months on end as
President George W. Bush took
on Democratic challenger John
Kerry.
When all was said and done,
the election-night map was a sea

coasts was captured by the blue
party (Democrat).

The deputy was patrolling the

driver was Lamont Jerome Hayes,
28, from Greenwood (Jackson


County). His passenger was Ta-
vares Geneard Troublefield, 26,
of Caryville. Troublefield also is
known as "Bob."

CHERYL WITHROW
Managing Editor
Another scholarship will soon be
available through the Take Stock in
Children (TSIC) program.
Zenna Corbin and Kris and
Del Corbin shared the cost of one
scholarship, which, when matched
by Orange Hill Soil and Water
Conservation District, will create
an avenue for success for one lucky
Washington County student.
Don Walters, who chairs the
Conservation District, took pos-
session of checks from the Corbins
in ceremonies last Wednesday
morning.
"This is the seventh scholarship


seventh scholarship


we have provided through TSIC,"
Walters said. "We would like to see
this make a difference in Wash-
ington County."
Zenna, who heads the local
Habitat for Humanity Chapter, was
appreciative of the opportunity to
help out.
"I am happy to have the oppor-
tunity to try to make a difference in
some child's life," she said.
Del and Kris agreed with Ze-
nna, with Kris giving some special
insight.
With heartfelt emotion in her
voice, she said, "I was one of these
kids growing up. My life may have
been different if I had something


like this to help me out."
TSIC is a statewide program that
targets and helps children who ex-
hibit potential, but would otherwise
not have the opportunity to pursue
higher education.
The system allows for financial
support through the scholarship.
It also provides a mentor to work
with each and every recipient.
Students from the ninth grade
are eligible to participate in the
program. Those interested in pur-
suing a course of higher education,
who do not have the means to do
so, should contact their guidance
counselor to find out how to take
advantage of this opportunity.

Supervisor of Elections Carol Griffin, with her hand on the Bible, is sworn in at the
Washington County Courthouse on Monday by Judge Colby Peel.


Washington County Property Appraiser Gil Carter shakes hands with Judge Colby
Peel after being sworn in for another term.


Sheriff
now (3 p.m.)."
Peel was complimentary
of his staff and minool rtians-
-fe'ftpi -otp er. .
"This has been'a"~ ery'
smooth transition," he said,
"thanks to the personnel."
Haddock agreed, "It's
been a very smooth tran-
sition due in part to the job.
Sheriff Peel has done and the
staff he has assembled.
"I have some big shoes to
fill. I'm a big man, but there
are still some very big shoes
to fill."
When asked if Peel had
given him any advice, Had-
dock replied, "Just be myself
is the best advice Sheriff
Peel has given me."


From Page 1


Peel was then asked if
he had anything he would
like to con\eS to his con-
-'stituency. -. a'
"I've served the county
longer than any other sher-
iff,",he said. "That is the
mantle I'll take with me."
Haddock then recalled the
time in 1978 when he heard
that 29-year-old Peel was
running for sheriff.
"I thought, who does
this guy think he is?" Had-
dock recalled. "He's proven
himself with the job he has
dorie."
Peel then concluded the
joint interview with a hand-
shake for Haddock and a
comment about the health


of the force.
"With the exception of
Capt. Barnes \ hose' leg
\1as injured in the, bomb
incident, not one officer has
been seriously injured on my
command.
"That's been a blessing."


Rabies
awareness that rabies is ac-
tive in Washington County.
Alerts are designed to bring
a heightened awareness to
the public, but they should
not give a false sense of se-
curity to areas that are not
under alert.
An animal with rabies
could infect other wild an-
imals or domestic animals
that have not been vac-
cinated against rabies. All
domestic animals should
be vaccinated against ra-
bies and all wildlife contact
should be avoided, including
and especially raccoons.
Rabies is a disease of
the nervous system and
is fatal to warm blooded
animals and humans. The
only treatment for human
exposure to rabies is rabies
specific immune globulin
and rabies immunization.
If treatment is started soon

When the deputy asked
the men where they were
coming from, he noticed
they were acting very ner-
vous. They said they had
just arrived back from a
trip to Houston, Texas.
No luggage was seen
to indicate anything but a
"turn around trip."
A search of the vehicle
revealed one kilo of pow-
der cocaine hidden inside
the engine compartment.
Hayes was charged with
trafficking in cocaine and

from the disease.
The following advice is
issued:
All pets should have
current rabies immuniz-
ations.
Avoid contact with all
wildlife, especially rac-
coons.
All persons with any
unusual exposure incident,
or bites, with a wild animal
should contact the Wash-
ington County Health De-
partment.

pertaining to animals

avoid attracting wild an-
imals.
Do not leave pet food
outside. This also attracts
other animals.
Veterinarian staff and
animal control staff should
be alert for animals encoun-
tered with signs suspicious
for rabies and contact the
Washington County Health
Department.
The Washington County
Health Department will
continue to monitor for ad-
ditional cases.

A note about

recent typos
A few weeks ago, our news-
papers changed over to a new
production system designed to
get pages ready for the press
much faster and much more ef-
ficiently.
There have been a few "bugs"
in the software, which have re-
sulted in some missing char-
acters, especially apostrophes
and quotation marks. On occa-
sion. an entire tvnestvle will he


changed, resulting in a distortion
of the text.
We are checking our pages
for these problems, and our staff
is working diligently to chase
away the software "bugs."
We thank our readers for your
patience and understanding dur-
ing this transition period.

len Register, who moved up to
Circuit Court
Supervisor of Elections Carol
Griffin faced two foes in a uni-
versal primary.
Pam Miner and Jo Ann
Miller waged tough campaigns,
but were unable to unseat Grif-
fin, who came away with 4,626
votes to Miner's 1,727 and
Miller's 996.
The 2004 primary was the
first countywide vote, for com-
missioner seats and school board
members, in over two decades.
Democratic challenger for
superintendent of schools,
Calvin Stevenson, submarined
incumbent Jerry Tyre, capturing
a significant majority of the pri-
mary vote.
Stevenson then handily won-
the job in the November general
election, besting Republican
candidate Sandra Cook, who
was unopposed in the primary.
Three county commission
seats were also up for grabs,
Districts 1, 3 and 5 were all
hotly contested.
Incumbent District 1 Com-
missioner John Hall went down
to defeat in August. He faced
challenges from former commis-
sioner Hubert Hayes and new-
comer Donnie Ray Strickland in
the Democratic primary.
Strickland came away the
winner, and then beat Repub-
lican Jerry Sasser, who was
unopposed in the primary, in
the general election.
Incumbent District 3 Com-
missioner Charles Brock, who
was on the board for 12 years,
sent challenger Bob Hightower
packing, besting him by a nar-
row margin of 343 votes.
Republican Jerry Sapp then
took on Brock in November,
sending him into retirement
when he won by a vote of
5,325 to 4,766.
Two school board seats were.
also up for grabs.
Inthe primary, no candidate
inD. Djitricts.2 or 3, was able to-
garner the required majority to
take a seat.
District 2, a.position which
came open due to the retirement
of long-time incumbent Philip
Rountree, was hotly contested
in the primary by Kristi Hinson,
Jim Sapp and Wayne Saunders.
Sapp was eliminated, leaving
Hinson and Saunders to square
off in November.
Veteran educator Saunders
handily won the election, best-
ing Hinson by 1,779 votes.
Incumbent Angia Morris
went up against two challengers
in the primary, John Hawkins
and Earlene Register.
When Morris failed to gain
a majority of votes in the pri-
mary, she faced off against
Hawkins, and lost, by a scant
238 votes.
Three seats were up for
grabs on the Orange Hill Soil
and Water Conservation Dis-
trict Board.
In Group 1, David Solger was
returned after George Clayton
Owens withdrew from the race
just days before the primary.
In Group 4, Ulysse Harrison
lost a bid for reelection when
challenger John Gilbert won.
Group 5 saw OHSWCD

Chairman Don Walters reelected
when he beat challenger A. Gary
Aukema.
On the national level, Re-
publican senatorial candidate
Mel Martinez, who went on to"
defeat Betty Castor in the gen-
eral election, won in Washington
County, besting his closest op-
ponent in an eight-person race,
by 167 votes.
Three races, that had no
primary showing, the state's
attorney contest, district five

congressional district, were
won in Washington County by
people who went on to win their

Northwest Florida Com-
munity Hospital
On Feb. 27, Patrick Schlen-
ker, CEO of Northwest Florida
Healthcare, Inc., (NWFH)
signed a 40-year lease for
Northwest Florida Community
Hospital (NWFCH) with the
county.
The action did not come with-
out challenges as members of the
then-hospital board of trustees,
Ronnie B. Finch and Dr. James
Clemmons, brought a lawsuit to
stop the lease signing.
Their attempt was quickly
squelched as Judge Glenn Hess
granted motions to dismiss filed
by attorneys for the defendants,
NWFCH, NWFH and Wash-
ington County Board of County
Commissioners.
Following the lease signing,-
which gave Schlenker approxi-
mate $3 million in. operating
capital, his corporation, which
was established immediately
prior to placing a bid on the
facility, put wheels in motion
to recruit new doctors to the
hospital and begin remodeling,
and upgrading of the circa 1975
building.
Hurricane Ivan
Although the devastating
storm did little damage in
Washington County, it devas-
tated portions of neighboring
Holmes County.
Ivan packed 130 mph winds
when it came on shore at Gulf
Shores just after midnight
Wednesday Sept. 15.
j Tornadoes spawned by the,i
killer storm, struck an eight-
square-mile area north of Bon-
ifay on State Road 79.
Several homes and vehicles
were demolished, roofs torn off
and livestock was killed as a
result of the winds.
According to information:
provided by the Holmes County
Emergency Operations Center,
over 600 people sought refuge.
in shelters at the height of the
storm.
Lee Shooting
On Saturday morning, March
27, Bonifay Police Officer Ste-
ven Lee answered a call that
would change his life.;
Lee went to the home. of
Dwight McWaters following a,
9-1-1 call that said McWaters
was firing shots at bushes across
from his home. The caller said
he was yelling at nonexistent
people.
Agencies from throughout
the area responded when a call
of officer down was put out
not long after Lee confronted
McWaters.
Florida Highway Patrol Cpl.
Rick Warden was the first on tie


scene andpositioned his vehicle
between the critically wounded
Lee and the shooter.
FHPPatrolman Milton Brown
was hot on Warden's heels.
A confidential source said
Washington County Deputy
Gary Hall detoured from a call
to Caryville and was the third
officer at the scene.'
He pulled his car in behind
Lee's, which was in the McWa-
ters' driveway, and subsequently
took two bullets in the driver's
side door.
When Hall left his car, he
threw his 45-caliber pistol to one
of the FHP officers who had lost
his handgun in the bushes and
was out of ammunition for his
shotgun.
Hall grabbed his M-16 and
began trading fire with Mc-
Waters.
After McWaters retreated to
his home, SWAT teams were
formed with deputies from
Washington and Holmes coun-
ties.
When the team entered the
house, they found McWaters
already injured.
He eventually succumbed
to his injuries at Southeast
Alabama Medical Center in
Dothan,Ala.
Lee, who is on his way to
a full recovery, has undergone
several surgeries and months of
rehabilitation in the shooting's
aftermath.
Troops Come Home
With sirens blaring and blue
lights flashing, Washington
County Sheriff Fred Peel and
Holmes County Sheriff Dennis
Lee led returning soldiers into
Chipley.
The 3rd Battalion, 124th
Infantry, Charlie Company,
headquartered in Chipley and
Bonifay, left Fort Stewart, Ga.
early Monday morning, Feb. 9,
and pulled into Chipley at 12:
30 p.m..
-.They were greeted by hun-
dreds of people from both
counties who lined the streets,
welcoming ihe troops, who
were deployed over one year
ago, home from Iraq.
After a quick turn through
downtown, they arrived at the
Chipley National Guard Ar-
mory, where families anxiously
awaited their arrival.
When troops poured off the
buses, emotions ran.high as
family members and friends al-
ternately laughed and cried, and
embraced their loved ones.
Vernon High School
During their May meeting;,
Washington County School
Board found out the new Ver-
non High School was $5 million
over budget.
Because of unbuildable
soil, Architect Jack Baker said
800,000 cubic yards of earth
would have to be moved and
replaced to used the original
site plan.
He presented a new model,
which, would place the school
closer to Moss Hill Road and
nearer Vernon Middle School.
This revelation ultimately
led to the replacement of the
project's construction manager.
Following the November
general election, it was learned
a portion of the school wasbeing
built on top of the old Vernon
City Dump.
More changes were eventu-
ally made, and the school, which
was in jeopardy of not even be-
ing built this year, seems to be
back on track.
Bombs at Grassy Pond
A traffic stop that began with
a violation of probation arrest,
ended with a lesson in bomb dis-
posal techniques for Washington
County Sheriff's deputies.


Bombs, trip wires and booby
traps were found on the Grassy
Pond property of Gregory
Wayne Truette.
During the course of the
traffic stop, deputies found a
substance they believed to be
methamphetamine packaged
for sale in Truette's vehicle.
Deputies were subsequently
able to secure a search warrant
for the Truette home.
Deputies executed the war-
rant and immediately called for
outside assistance.
A special agent from the Pan-
ama City office of the Federal
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives was
dispatched to the scene.
He, in turn notified the Flor-
ida State Fire Marshal's office,
who sent their bomb squad.
Tyndall Air Force Base's
Explosive Ordinance Disposal
(EOD) team was also called
into service.
Because of new rules and
regulations involving home-
land security, Emergency Man-
agement Director Roger Hagan
and the Area One coordinator of
the State Emergency Response
Team, Jiim Ielms, were notified,
and came to the home.
Both bomb squads spent
several hours finding and ex-
ploding bombs. At one point
the EOD employed the services
of a robot to enter the property
aid reconnoiter the scene.
According to Sheriff Fred
Peel on the day of the discovery,
"They have located approxi-
mately 20 explosive devices
scattered in. and outside the res-
idence. These devices are con-
structed to accomplish different
tasks.These devices have been
placed in strategic locations to
create the maximum amount of
damage and confusion."
.A helicopter was sent aloft to
survey the property surrounding
the double-wide mobile home.
Paths through the woods lead-
iig away from the home were
seen.
When they were investigated,
primitive.booby traps made of
fish hooks strung on fish line
at eye level were found and
neutralized.
S"Besides the bombs, deputies
found an AK 47, a pistol-grip
shotgun. a wired trap door in a
closet that apparently led under
the trailer," added Peel. "They
also saw evidence of exploded'
devices."

Sports Beat



JEREMY RAINES
Sports Editor
What happened to the
world of sports?
In the past few months
there have been many
different altercations in
the sports world.
First there was the
melee at the Palace in
Auburn Hills, Mich.,
when the Detroit Pistons
and the Indiana Pacers
had a brawl involving
fans and players.
Then, two days later,
the Clemson and South
Carolina football teams
ended up in a pregame,
and during the game,
fight that cost both
teams the chance to
play in a bowl game.
Athletics are intense
and pressure packed
and involve millions of
dollars in the college
and pro ranks.
But who is to blame
for these incidents?
I say us. The media
All to often the media
displays every single
event that transpires
over and over on tele-
vision, until kids and
adults alike become an-
gered and want to take
action themselves.
The most recent case
of the media trying to
promote an altercation,
was the Christmas Day
game between the LA.
Lakers and the Miami
Heat
This was the first
match-up between Sha-
quille O'Neal and Kobe
Bryant since ~Q;'Neal
was traded in the off
season.
Several media outlets
and pregame shows kept
asking whether O'Neal
and Bryant would have
words or incidents dur-
ing the game.
Several even insinu-
ated that O'Neal would
knock Bryant when he
drove to the basket
Yes, it is the media's
job to promote the game
and make people want
to watch.
I actually watched to
see if anything would
happen.
Nothing did to the
credit of Bryant and
O'Neal and both players
enjoyed great games.
Why do I mention
this?
Well over the years
sports has developed a
bad name with various
incidents and mishaps,
and more and more
people are turning away
from sports.
I just want to remind
everyone that sports,
when played is pure
and fun.
Not the corrupt and
vile existence we have
grown to accept.
I recently heard a par-
ent say there is no way
their child is playing
sports, because of the
politics and violence
involved.
Remember that is
called "playing" for a
reason.
It's all about having
fun and exercise, not to
mention that it teaches
self discipline and in-
tegrity.
So remember the next

New district alignments impact local teams


JEREMY RAINES
Sports Editor
A little old school
returned to the dis-
trict classifications
for football in 2005.
With the newly
released district
alignments for the
upcoming football
season several old
rivalries will be re-
born.
Vernon and Blount-
stown will rejoin Class
2B and will now play
in the same district as
Chipley and Holmes
County.
Vernon and Blount-
stown were long time
members of the Class
2A before reclassif-
ication moved them
down to Class A.
No longer will the
annual Chipley-Ver-
non game be just for
bragging rights now a
district title will be on
the line.


The addition of
these two schools will
surely make District
2 one of the toughest
in the state.
Blountstown is
coming off a state
runner-up finish,
while Vernon fin-
ished with a loss to
Blountstown in the
state Regional finals.
New to the district
will be Bozeman in
their first year of
fielding a high school
squad.
Bozeman has par-
ticipated in middle
school football for
several seasons.
Bozeman is located
on Highway 77 in
north Bay County.
Vernon, Holmes
County and Blount-
stown all requested
to be moved out of
District 2 and moved
to District 1.
A request that


would have set any
of the schools that
would have been ap-
proved in the driver's
seat for the district
crown.
District 1 currently
consists of Baker,
South Walton and
Northview (Bratt).
All three requests
were denied because
the other two could
not be granted, or it
would have left Dis-
trict 2 with just two
teams.
District 2-2B
Blountstown
Bozeman
Chipley
Holmes County
Vernon
The redistricting
came about because
of the change of Class
1A.
Class 1A.was split
into two divisions,
similar to what 2A
did last season.


Now Class 1A will
encompass schools
with student popu-
lations of 410-233,
while Class 1B will
be schools with 232-
50 students.
Graceville and Cot-
tondale will be two of
the schools that will
be in the newly cre-
ated Class lB.
Graceville will be
joined by Cottondale
in their district along
with Apalachicola
and Carrabelle.
District 1-1B
Apalachicola
Carrabelle
Cottondale
Graceville
Graceville and
Cottondale could be
the biggest winners
in the realignment
process, after hav-
mg to play in what
many considered the
toughest district in
the state for the past

Now they will
be considered the
favorites to make
the playoffs every
season.
"We went from a
middle of the dis-
trict team to a playoff
contender with these
moves," said Gracev-
ille High Coach Will
Holley.
"I'm excited about
the opputuniy and
we should have abet-

the playoffs now," he
added.
The new Class 1B
features 38 teams
with only four of
those schools bieng
public schools.
The four public
schools are all in

The new districts
will certainly make

Perry's

Prattle


by Judge Perry E. Wells, ret.


Now that Christmas
2004 is history, my an-
swers to those most asked
questions at Christmas
time remains "yes," "yes,"
and "yes." Of course you
remember the questions:
"Are you ready for Christ-
mas?" "Does it seem like
Christmas?" and "Did you
have a big Christmas?"
I hope you answered in
the affirmative to all three
inquiries, thus assuring
one and all that you, along
with me, had a safe and en-
joyable holiday season.
Before the big day ar-
rived, the "prattler" did
make a brief shopping visit
to Bonifay as this was the
customary shopping town
in my youthful years. In
those earlier days, Bonifay
looked as big to children as
Tallahassee would appear
today.
Then, I spent some time
at what the Wells siblings
now affectionately call
"the old place." It's the
farm house where all eight
of the Wells brothers and
sisters were reared. My
thoughts of Christmas are
always associated with this
particular portion of God's
hallowed creation.
This special place in my
life is located six miles
south of Bonifay at 1471
Lee Road, approximately
one mile .inside Wash-
ington County. You know
the story by now. It is the
homeplace established by
our parents, Hugh and Ma-
rie Harris Wells, in 1925,
and-a home they.main-
tained throughouttheir
lifetime, never moving

workshop
Washington County Coun-
cil on Aging is sponsoring a
dizziness/balance workshop
at 10 a.m. on January 10.
The workshop presented
by Vestibular Balance and
Hearing Services, Inc.,
could prove to be valuable
to someone who has fallen,
felt dizzy, or sometimes loses
their balance.
It will explain how the
vestibular system operates,
symptoms of vestibular dis-
orders, how testing is done
to determine if there is a
disorder, and how physical
therapy can benefit the in-
dividual.
After the workshop, ap-
pointments will be set up for
evaluations for those elderly
that need testing. After test-
ing each elderly person has
an evaluation report gener-
ated with recommended re-
habilitation and those reports
are given to the rehabilitation
department of their choice to
prescribe therapy.
This service is approved
by Medicare B, Medicaid
and most third-party insur-
ance companies.
Those wishing to attend
the workshop, should call
638-6216 or 638-6217.

to draw candy from a large

they were allowed to draw

and I appreciate the op-

Friend of Library
Friends of the Library will meet for lunch at 12 noon on Thursday, Jan. 6, at Chipley
Woman's Club.
The speaker will be author, Austin Pritchett, of Enterprise, Ala., who has always lived
within a 20-mile radius of Enterprise.
Pritchett has had two books published. They are "John and the President" and "Austin
and the Slave." They are written in a unique style that includes many colloquialisms.
Inspiration for "John and the President" came during Pritchett's daily routine of sell-
ing boiled peanuts by the roadside.
"Austin and the Slave" is a true story. It talks about things some people are not familiar
with, e.g. rolling stores, cane mills and so forth.
Friends are reminded to call Jodie Warren at 638-4321 for luncheon reservations.
Five Points Crime Watch
A Crime Watch meeting is scheduled for Jan. 6, 6 p.m. at the Five Points Recreation
Center.
Judge Colby Peel will be the guest speaker. He will discuss the affairs and security
concerns of the county's elderly population.
According to an organizer, everyone is invited to attend this informative session.
Mature Driving Class
A mature driving class for individuals age 50 and over will be held Jan. 11 and 12,
beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 12:30 p.m.
The eight-hour course, co-sponsored by Washington County Council on Aging and
AARP, was developed for the senior driver with years of driving experience.
The National Safety Council course reviews basic driving knowledge, new traffic
laws, and introduces technique to help offset the effects of the aging process on driver
performance. It is geared to your safety needs and helps to compensenate for age-related
changes.
This mature driving course is approved by the DHSMV for a three-year insurance
premium reduction.
There is no testing and only a minimal course fee of $10. To enroll, call the office of
the Washington County Council on Aging at (850) 638-6216 or 628-6217

Consequently, Tippy is not getting the love and attention he deserves.
Because the older white miniature poddle has been such a popular fixture at the shelter,
a special plan has beei _put in place to find a home for him.
Tippy is a neutered male, and is completely blind in his right eye.. "He needs his
teeth cleaned, but his most recent check-up, on Dec. 16, came back negative for heart

UF annual Florida

Bull Test Sale is just

around the corner


University of Florida/
Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences (UF/IFAS)
will be holding it annual
Florida Bull Test Sale on
Saturday, Jan, 22, at 12:30
p.m. CDT.
It will be held at the
North Florida Research and
Education Center (NFREC-
Marianna) Beef Research
Unit, one mile west of Green-
wood, at 4925 Highway 162
North.
One objective of the Flor-
ida Bull Test is to provide
the commercial cow/calf
producer a source of bulls
that have been gain tested
and thoroughly evaluated at
the same location and have
passed stringent health re-
quirements.
"We feel that our bulls
are superior to some of the
other bulls here in the area
because they have been per-
formance tested in a neutral
environment where all bulls
have an equal chance to
perform and do well. Then
we take those bulls that per-
formed well in various areas,
such as average daily gain,
ultra-sounded for rib eye, and
rump-fat thickness and intra-
muscular fat percentage, and
put those all into an equation
to find those bulls that will
perform out in the industry
the best," said Dr. Gary
Hansen, faculty supervisor
of the Florida Bull Test and
a UF/IFAS assistant profes-
sor of animal science.
"These bulls are also fer-
tility tested by a vet, thj' year
we'll include in the f rtility
test a test for the fertility-as-
sociated antigen. Those bulls
that have this antigen will
usually impregnate between
nine percent and 17 percent
more cows, so we feel this
is an important advantage of
some of the bulls that will
be coming out of the Florida
BulfTest," he explained
Approximately 100 per-
formance-proven bulls will
be sold, including Angus,.
Beefmaster, Charolais, Her-
eford, Limousin, Senepol
and Simmental breeds.
Each of the bulls in the
Sale indexed 90 or better
based on a combination of
gain and weight per day of
age in the Test.

As most people know,
last weekend, an undersea

into low lying areas of
11 countries around the
Indian Ocean. The death

of, "How can I help?" the

There will be two parts
to the fund, one for imme-

Funds contributed to the

those designated for the
longer term will go to

The W.I.A. (Workforce Investment Act) Youth
Program/One Stop Career Center spread a litth
Christmas joy to the residents at Washington County
Convalescent Center on Dec. 21. The youth gathered
at Washington-Holmes Technical Center, and made ap-
proximately 95 fruit baskets and Christmas cards to
take to the center. They arrived early in the afternoon
and began distributing the baskets and cards to resi-
dents. After everyone received their gifts, some of the
residents gathered in the dinning hall and listened to
Christmas carols sung by the students.




The family of Inez B. Parish would like to thank the nurses ),,
and staff of Washington County Convalescent Center for the
Attentive care given to our Mother during her residence there. '
We would also like to express our appreciation to the friends /
S and family who supported us with.food, flowers and other ( .
expressions of love during this difficult time. '--

Ours or His?


REV. TIM HALL, pastor
Blue Lake Baptist Church
People often make
comments to me about
who their fa- orite
preachers are. Most of
the time, they refer to a
preacher that is on tele- -.
vision, and then they will
name some hard-work-
ing local pastor and say,
"Oh, I don t like his style
of preaching," and that is
whatthey are usually re-
ferring to, style.
As preachers come from all
S types of backgrounds, it makes us
different as the Lord designed us
to be different. Yet as I said ear-
lier, people judge one against an-.
other, which is not what the Lord
intended. For when the Lord calls
a man:to preach, He -calls him to
be the person he is, not someone
else.
I remember when the .-Lord
called me to preach, other than the
awesome responsibility that one
feels when breaking the Bread of
Life, one of my main reasons for
saying no, for a while, was that I
felt I could not preach like the pas-
tors that I knew. They preached
with such power, authority and
emotion, and though I respected
and admired them, I felt I could
never preach like they did.
So when I finally admitted and
shared with the church that I at-
tended, that the Lord had called
me to preach, I basically told
them, "The Lord has called me
to preach, and He told me just be
me. He didn t need another Jim or
John, but He wanted a Tim."


Thus that has always been my
goal, to be the best me I can be.
Being a servant of the Lord
is not about being liked or
pleasing to other people,
but it s about being pleas-
ing to Him.
When you study the
speaking and writing styles
of the apostles, John the
Baptist, Paul and even Je-
sus, you find that-every-
one one of them presented
themselves in -a different
way, because they where different.
And if any of them were to pres-
ent a resume to a church of today, I
guarantee you -- they would be the
first to be put in File 13.
After all, who would want a
pastor that had not just been run
off by the church, but run out of
town? Where is the church that
would call and support a pastor
who had been arrested and put in
prison?
The more I read the words that
Christ spoke while here on earth,
the more I realize that if Christ ac-.
tually walked on the earth today.
as He did 2,000 years ago. and if a
church actually called Him as their
pastor,-it would probably go down
in history as the fastest declining
church in history. Oh, at first the
multitudes would come to get the
free meals that could just multiply
before their eyes. And they would
come by the droves to have their
arthritis and back pains healed.
But once He began preaching
on repentance of sin and living a
holy life, which would bring glory
and honor to God, the house would
empty faster than you could say


"scat."
People have not changed that
much in 2,000 years. When He
fed them, they came; but when He
shared the Bread of Life with the
great amount of emotion that was
in Him, words that would change
their lives for eternity, He found
Himself asking to the few grum-
bling disciples that were left, "Will
you also. leave?" They may not
have liked the tone He was speak-
ing or the emotion and strength
of His Words, but they knew they
must abide with the truth in or-
der to abide with the Father (John
6:60-71). These few were connit-
ted to what God wanted them to be
and not what they liked.
What is your life about? Find-
ing that preacher and that church
or club that makes you feel impor-
tant and comfortable, or about fol-
lowing Him down the path of truth
and life, which can be narrow and
lonely sometimes.
'The old song says, "You have no
such a friend as the lowly Jesus,
no not one." Regardless of what
the world has told you, Jesus was
not popular when He walked this
life, and the walk that He leads us
to walk today will not be the popu-
lar walk either.
As Rick Warren wrote in The
Purpose Driven Life, -we -must.
learn, it s not about you, it s all
about Him.

and was raisedfrom the dead, literally and completely, by the power of the Holy Spirit. All men have sinned, fallen short of the glory
of God and are in need of salvation. Salvation is by faith alone, provided through Jesus Christ, made available to all men through
God's grace. It is the will of God that every born-again believer befilled with the Holy Spirit. The Church consists of all those who
have received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Healing is provided through the redemptive work of Christ and is available to every
believer. All believers are called upon to witness theirfaith to the world and to do good works, not as a means of attaining salvation,
but as evidence of their salvation and out of love for their Savior.

Read the warning signs


MOE PUJOL
Jesus answered: "Watch out that
no one deceives you. For many
will come in my name, claiming,
lam the Christ, and will
deceive many. You will
hear of wars and rumors
of wars, but see to it that i
you are not alarmed. -A
Such things must hap- "
pen, but the end is still
to come. Nation will rise .
against nation, and king-
dom against kingdom.
There will be famines and
earthquakes in various
places. All these are the beginning
of birth pains. "Then you will be
handed over to be persecuted and
put to death, and you will be hated
by all nations because of me. At
that time many will turn away from
the faith and will betray and hate
each other, and many false proph-
ets will appear and deceive many
people. Because of the increase
of wickedness, the love of most
will grow cold, but he who stands
firm to the end will be saved. And
this gospel of the kingdom will be
preached in the whole world as a
testimony to all nations, and then
the end will come."
(Matthew 24:4-14)
The whole world is reeling from
a tragedy of epic proportions. A
record earthquake, more powerful
than any recorded in the past 40
years, caused tidal waves which
killed people as far as 3,000 miles
away. As of this writing, the death
toll was estimated at 120,000 and
climbing. Officials predicted many
more deaths in the aftermath, due
to disease from unsanitary condi-
tions.
Nearly everyone on the planet
knows about this disaster. The
images of death and destruction
brought to us by the broadcast
media leave all of us with our own
sense of devastation. All of a sud-
den, the damages caused in Florida
by four consecutive hurricanes

seem like nothing in comparison.
Some have wondered where
God is in all this. I even saw an
editorial cartoon which backhand-
edly accused God of not
being the loving Father
believers know Him to
be. When some believers
-- brought up apocalyptic
references and talked
about God s inevitable
judgment, they were
roundly criticized as be-
ing insensitive religious
fanatics.
After all, the skeptics
say, this was just a "natu-
ral" disaster, however unprecedent-
ed. To read too-much into it would
be an exercise in superstition. And
if you believe, how can a loving
God destroy hundreds of thousands
for no apparent reason?
This is an age-old question,
raised by believers and non-be-
lievers alike. Why do bad things
happen to good people? It will
probably always be asked until
the end, when Jesus comes for His
church and the world sees seven
years of mayhem which will make
last week s earthquake seem like a
mild tremor.
For an answer to this question,
as we should for any question we
have, we turn to the Bible, God s
inspired and authoritative Word.
The world misunderstands the
Christian perspective, just as it
always has. The world reacts vio-
lently to any reference to God s
judgment. How can anyone say
all those people died because they
were sinners? Where is the justice
in all those children and all the
devout adults who perished?
Here s the simple answer the
world does not understand. All
those innocent souls who died are
in God s hands. Those who died in
sin and rebellion against God and
those who died in spiritual dark-
ness are in the hands of Satan. No
one on this earth can say defini-


tively who went one way and who
went the other. Only God knows
this, for He is the ultimate Judge.
I know it is not politically cor-
rect and no longer socially accept-
able to talk like this, but it s the
simple truth.
The world has largely turned
away from God and has become in-
creasingly secular and materialistic
over the past 100 years. Hedonism
and corruption have touched nearly
every nation on earth, and much
of the world s population lives in
spiritual darkness. Cults and false
religions dominate the lives of
many people.
You can call me narrow-minded,
but it s a modern falsehood to say
that one religion is as good as an-
other. If the beliefs of Christianity
are correct, then other religions
have it all wrong. Even worse,
they are deceptions spawned by the
devil to keep entire populations in
spiritual bondage.
But guess what? God is a loving
Father, wanting no one to perish.
Sadly, His Word tells us that many
will. In fact, there are indications
in the Book of Revelation that
most will. Just so we can under-
stand what s going on, though,
Jesus told us ahead of time what
to watch for.
There would be wars, famines
and earthquakes; and they would
increase in intensity as the end
drew near. This acceleration of
natural disasters would be a sign
for everyone to turn to God. That s
what s happening today. Sadly,
many will still go their merry way
into death and destruction, choos-
ing to ignore observations by "fa-
natics" like me.
Jesus said He is the way, the
truth and the life. Either He is cor-
rect, or He was the most egotistical
liar the world has ever known. The
world has largely chosen to believe
the latter.
I believe Jesus. How about
you?

for

salvation

Heavenly Father, I
come to You in the
Name of Jesus. I
acknowledge the sin
in my life and my
need for a Savior,
and I ask for Your
forgiveness in the
Name and through
the Blood of Jesus.
Lord Jesus, I believe
You are the Son of
God and that You
died on the cross for
me. Please come into
my life and create
in me a clean, new
heart. Holy Spirit of
God, I welcome You.
I ask for You to fill
me in accordance
with God's Word in
Luke 11:13. Convict
me and guide me.
Teach me to hear
Your voice through-
out the rest of my
life. As always, I
pray in the Name of
my Lord and Savior,
Jesus. Amen.
