Signs and any obstructions on
Ovid Lane were ordered removed
Wednesday, May 25 as part of an
order issued by the 14th Judicial
Circuit Court. Circuit Judge Allen
Register issued the order follow-
ing a non-jury trial in April.
The order was issued follow-
ing the trial where Washington
County, acting by and through its
Board of County Comissioners,
was plantiff in an action against
Ronnie, Mary and Hulan Pitts
regarding Ovid Lane.
Register issued five findings:
*It is not the Court's role to
decide the wisdom of Plaintiff's
decision to maintain the road in
question.
*The proper test for determin-
ing whether a road has been
maintained or repaired is not
whether the maintenance or re-
pair is proper, frequent, thorough
or obvious, but rather whether it is


appropriate to the circumstances.
The road in question has only one
resident and limited traffic.
*Based upon the evidence pre-
sented, the Plaintiff County did
not construct the roadin question..
The County instead imporved the
road to some degree.
*The road in question has been
regularly maintained or repaired
by the Plaintiff County for the
immediate past seven years in
accordance with the provisions
of Section 95.361(2), Florida Stat-
utes. The portion which crosses
the yard area of the residence has
been repaired for the immediate
past seven years as well.
*The width of that portion of
the road crossing the yard area,
which has been maintained or
repaired for te prescribed period,
is 14 feet, and extends seven feet
either direction from the center of
the road. This portion of the road


is 300 feet in length.
The width of the remainder of
the road varies somewhat, and
shall be deemed to be the width
of the road presently being graded.
maintained or repaired.
Register then issued the follow.
ing orders:
*The 300-feet protion of Ovid
Lane passing through the yard
area of the residence is dedi-
cated to the public and vested in
Washington County, Florida, for
a width of 14 feet.
*The remaining portions of
Ovid Lane are dedicated to the
public and vested in Washington
County, Floirda, for the width be.
ing presently graded, maintained
or repaired by the County.
*The relief sought by the De
fendants in their counter-claim
is denied.

Hagan named public safety director


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Acting on reports of
poor morale in the road
and bridge department, the
Washington County Board
of County Commission-
ers unanimously approved
appointing EMA Director
and former County Admin-
istrator Roger Dale Hagan
as public safety director.
Hagarf took the position as
of Wednesday, June 1.
Hagan. will continue
as EMA director but will
devote half of his time
to R&B. Half of his sal-
Sary will be funded through
grants to EMA.
"I've been somewhat
concerned about public
works," said Board Chair-
man Roger Finch Thursday
at the regular monthly
Board meeting. Finch said
that morale was low and
'people are gossiping."
"We need leadership
where the buck stops and
someone to solve prob-
lems as best he can. We
need someone in charge."
Finch said that the coun-
ty cannot afford a full-time
public works director, but
Hagan was willing to "step
up and help".
SCommissioners voiced
strong support for the
move. Commissioner Jerry
Sapp called it the best idea
at the entire meeting, and
Commissioner Donnie Ray
Strickland said the depart-
ment was best run when
there was a public works
director, which Hagan will
*effectively be half of his
time.
Commissioner Lynn
Cope cautioned the Board
that "the last public works
director is no longer with
us because we did not let
him do the job." Hagan
--also made it clear that the
authority of the position
must be established, and
commissioners voiced
strong support for granting
that authority.
S/Hagan will be a combi-
riation of human resource
officer and supervisor of
day-to-day operations
for R&B (including as-
Ssigning personnel), along
with other responsibilities.
Hagan will also draft an
operational plan for the
department.
"As you presented it
to me, we can do this,"
Hagan said.
Hagan's assistant at
EMA, Lynn White, will
be asked to take on more
responsibilities as Hagan
split his time with EMA
and R&B. Various salaries
and responsibilities will be
adjusted as necessary.

Budget packets
presented, raise
discussed
Commissioners received
their budget packets from
County Administrator Pete
Herbert, and the Board
immediately began discus-
sion on how much of raise
can be given to county em-
ployees.
Three options were
worked by Herbert and his
staff for consideration, and
they included:
*A three percent raise,


which would balance
transportation and leave
a $100,000 contingency
fund.
*A five-percent raise,
which would leave a
smaller contingency fund
and leave transportation
$41,000 in the red.
*A $1-an-hour raise,
.which would further in-
crease the red ink in trans-
portation.
The preliminary budget
does not include any new
positions or overtime in
transportation. A 15 per-
cent increase in insurance
premiums is in the budget.
Herbert said more reve-
nue is anticipated from the
ad valorem tax, gas taxes
and sales taxes, according
to state estimates. "We
were very conservative on
revenue figures," Herbert
said.
There was wide-rang-
ing discussion about the
preliminary budget. Com-
missioner Lenzy Corbin
said he favored giving
the five percent raise and
covering any deficits with
revenue from land sales. "I
don't like the idea of bal-
ancing the budget on land
sales, (after obligated ex-
penses there will be about
$400-450,000 left) but for
salaries it's okay," Corbin
said.
.Cope cautioned that it
was bad precedent to take
land-sale revenue out of
the general fund. He noted
that Elections Supervisor
Carol Griffin appeared ear-
lier and told the Board that
an additional $100,000
will be required by July
1 from the Board to pro-
vide complete funding for
handicap-access "touch
screen" equipment (there
must be at least on at each
voting site- under federal
law). Other requests and
emergencies will also arise,
Cope said.
"We can't spend it if we
don't have it," Sapp said.
He suggested reevaluat-
ing the situation if there is
more:revenue, 'and today
allocate what we can work
with." Sapp recommended
.that 'first and foremost
give adequate salaries,"
and then worry about other
expenses.
Finch turned the gavel
over to Vice-Chairman
Cope and made the motion
that employees will receive
either a three percent raise
or a 60-cent-an-hour raise,
depending on which gives
them a higher raise. Her-
bert will work this into the
budget draft, and a budget.
workshop will be held on
June 13 at 9 a.m.
The Board also ap-
proved allowing Herbert
to approve budget amend-
ments as long as they stay
within budget, and not
have to bring them before
the Board.

In other business, the
Board:
*Approved the consent
agenda.
*Closed out a number
of inactive accounts, in-
cluding criminal justice
($45,982.92), FEMA 404
($70,470.53), demolition

go into transportation, and

mission for David Baron

dation from the planning
commission to re-plat Sun-
ny Hills subdivision from
about 230 lots to about
100 to.reduce density. The
developers propose post-
ing security in either cash,
a bond or credit for the
amount to finish the road.
*Approved the specialty
contractors license ordi-
nance as advertised. The
Board will look into form-
ing a competency board
like those in neighboring
counties.
*Approved rumble strips'
for the intersections of
Bonnett Pond and Pioneer
Roads, and Vernon High-
way and Clayton Road.
*Tabled discussion of a
four-way stop at the inter-
secti6n of Falling Waters
and State Park Road until
next meeting on June 16,
and authorized Finch to
ask state DOT for another
traffic count now that West
Point Stevens has more
employees using the road
to see if a traffic light is
warranted.
*Heard a report from
Andy Andersen about the
Ag Center. An energy au-
dit was done of the vari-
ous parts of the building
to measure utility 'osts.
There were 93 rentals last
year, and the center needs
to replace about 12 tables
and 24 chairs every year.
There are 609 chairs and
50 tables available. The
Board approved schedul-
ing a workshop (TBA) on
the ag center.
*Heard that filling the
4H position continues to
drag on as the University
of Florida tries to get three
recommendations as re-
quested by the Board.
*Approved providing
help for sodding at Vernon
High School.
*Approved paying
$1,800 for survey work
for the Swindell Lake boat
landing project.
*Approved having Coun-
ty Attorney Gerald Holley
look over the situation
of Bertha Artis, who was
injured in a fall at the hos-
pital about a year ago. Ar-
tis said she still has many
bills and has been turned
over to a collection agency.
Holley said Artis' lawyer is


threatening a lawsuit.
*Approved having the
county engineer look at a
flooding and well problem
on Brooke Circle and see
what the county can do to
help with the problem.
*Approved signing an
agreement to accept a
$750,000 OTED grant.
*Approved 10-year re-
newal of the gas tax ordi-
nance.
*Approved the Indigo

ed changes.
*Approved advertising
for a public hearing on
June 16 to reconsider using
the citation method (in ad-
dition to liens as presently
used) for codes enforce-
ment similar to that used by
the City of Chipley. Under
this system, the codes en-
forcement officer of desig-
nee would issue a citation.
The property owner cited
would go before the judge,
and if necessary could be
fined or jailed.
*Approved a request
from the computer depart-
ment for a VISA card to
be used through the county
administrator.
*Approved using the
same population formula
used for animal control to
distribute additional recre-
ation funds on a one-time
basis: Vernon, $6,958.64;
Wausau, $3,746.96; Ebro,
$2,676.40. Sunny Hills
gets no funding because
it is not incorporated, and
Caryville does not have a
rec department.

len Downs was on hand to
repeat his earlier request
that Vernon be funded up
to a total of $25,000 by the

fishing 'signs at the pond',
at the beef unit to prepare
for Kids Fishing Day (see
Extra for the schedule).
*Approved paying $2,000
for 11 slope meters for the
county motor graders.
Blood needed for
summer months
in the area
Before you roll on down
the highway on your sum-
mer vacation or trip to the
beach, consider rolling up
your sleeve and providing
blood for someone whose
life may be in jeopardy
without it.
Often during the summer
there are severe blood and
platelet shortages across
our region and America.
Donations decrease by
20 per cent this time of
year because many regular
donors-high school and
college students are on
vacation. Families are
traveling and are not
available. Call 1-800-

Advance care planning
If you became incapacitated and could no longer com-
municate, who would guide your medical care? If you
have not put your wishes in writing, then consider at-
tending Covenant Hospice's free Advance Care Planning
Workshop on Friday, June 10 at 9:30 a.m. The program
will be held at the Holmes County Senior Citizens Center,
located at 21 W. Kansas Ave. in Bonifay.
Participants will learn how to document their medi.
cal, physical and spiritual wishes. Free living wills will
be provided. Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process
to help extend your rights through documentation that
guides your medical care should you become unable to
communicate.
This documentation consists of two primary concepts:
devising a living will and designating a health care sur
rogate. Less than 25 percent of Americans over the age
of 18 enact these rights in writing. Covenant Hospice
believes that ACP is for everyone regardless of age
or health status and that it is important to make your
wishes known so that your loved ones will not have to
endure the pressure of deciding your health care.
Call 850-482-8520 or 1-888-817-2191 to register. Re-
freshments will be served. Seating is limiited.

In for life?
Dear Editor:
I recently received the following
comments from a friend in Pontiac,
Mich., who teaches in a college
near his home:
Quote: "I don't have tenure,
nor am I on what is called a tenure
track, so I have to earn a living.
Strangely, tenure is something
that is a. so-called 'entitlement'
to two groups of people in this
country that I am aware of. One
if Supreme CourtJustices and the
other is college professors. There
is a story that goes like this. A man
asks, 'What is this thing called
tenure.' After a long pause the man
answers, 'Tenure is like a starfish.
A starfish wanders about through
the ocean until he comes upon a
rock where he is comfortable. He
then attaches himself there. Once
that occurs, he eats his own brain
out and remains there for the rest
of his life, whether he knows it or
not. That is like tenure." Ihave
never heard a better description!
"Why state-funded universities
are allowed to have .tenured
professors is incomprehensible
to me. I believe the youth of this
country are showing the emulated
permissiveness that has resulted
from the tenure experiment." -
End quote.
Thomas Jefferson worried
that the courts would overstep
their authority and instead of
interpreting law would begin
making law an oligarchy, the
rule of few over many. From my
limited vantage point it seems that
what Jefferson worried about has
come to fruition. I think we would
have a much more representative
government if Supreme Court
Justices. were limited to terms of
no more than six years, and if it
were easier to remove 'them when
they exceed their constitutional
authority and infringe on the
legislative branch of government.
It is interesting to note that the
very first Supreme Court Justice,
John Jay, said, "Americans should
select and prefer Christians as
their rulers." Things surely have
changed since his day, haven't
they? 1\ Ia n y things we have done in
this country for two hundred years
have now suddenly become wrong
and unconstitutional. One thing I
know, the moral law of God never
changes. The Ten Commandments
are not a church, but rather they
are the embodiment of that
morality which must be upheld
and observed by any society if it is
long to abide.
I am aware that what I have said
here will not even make the tiniest
ripple on the world stage, but
wouldn't it be a wonderful world
if everybody judiciously followed
the admonition of Christ and only
didunto others the things that they
would have others do unto them?
It wouldn't solve all the problems


in the world, but it surely would
solve most of them.

Dear Editor:
Certainly our Lord cannot
be pleased with the way we, His -
people, have idly sat by and allowed
many atrocities to overtake our --
nation. It started with the removal
of prayer in our schools and has -
now escalated to removing the
Ten Commandments from a
courthouse in Alabama. "In God
We Trust" is on our currency,
documents and monuments. Will
this become obsolete too? Where
will it stop?
After the 9/11 terrorist act,
we cried out as a nation for God
to help us and protect us. People *
flocked to churches in droves
seeking an answer, seeking solace, -
seeking God. -

had the pleasure of attending the
grand opening and taking a tour
of the facility. Laura Kinney was
a wonderful tour guide.
As an emergency room

in level one and level two trauma
facilities in larger cities. The
monitoring equipment acquired
by NFCH would be found in
those facilities. It was impressive
to learn NFCH's emergency
department is staffed with board
certified emergency physicians.
It is common practice for
rural hospitals to staff their E.D.
with family practice or internal
medicine physicians. Mr.
Schlenker has done a great job.
The most important thing is peace
of mind for citizens of Washington
County and surrounding areas. It
must be comforting to know they
don't have to drive out of town for
good, quality care. in case of an

Wednesday, June 1, 2005, Washington County News, 5A

HIONSSO ROLL'S'.


These are two of the four signs the county sued to have removed. The lawsuit was
successful.


ROAD
*The Defendants are
ordered to immediately
remove all obstructions
lying within the 14-foot-
wide road passing through
the yard area, including the
posted signs or no tresspass-
ing signs.
The following account
of the trial ran in the Sat-
urday, April 23 Washington
County News.
On Monday, April 19,
Washington County At-
torney Gerald Holley pre-
sented the county's case
against Hulan Pitts in the
chambers of Circuit Court
Judge Allen Register.
At issue are four no tres-
passing signs Pitts erected
on his property. The county
wants the signs to come
down. Pitts wants the
county to stop grading the
road in front of his house.
In.the court session,
Commissioner Lenzy
Corbin testified the county
built Ovid Lane in 1975.
Pitts contends the county
did not build the lane, and
has not regularly main-
tained it. Corbin also said'
county crews have graded-
the road in question on a
weekly basis. In addition,
he testified public works
pulled ditches on the road
at least twice a year.
Aerial photographs of
Ovid Lane indicate that,
as of 2000, there were no
ditches on the road. An on-
site inspection of the road
made in the summer of
2004 by an impartial third
party testified to the lack of
ditches. "I have been at the
Pitts home twice last year,
well before any of this
mess 'started," the person,
who asked to remain anon-
ymous, said. "There were
never any ditches on Ovid
Lane before this week."
On Tuesday, the day af-
ter the hearing that included
the ditch testimony, county
road crews appeared and
began digging ditches on
Ovid Lane, just south of
the Pitts home. When Pitts
began to film the work be-
ing done, he was told to put
his camera away. When he
refused, Dallas Carter, a
public works supervisor,
told Pitts he could not
take pictures of inmates,
who were part of the work
crew.
When Pitts told Carter to
send the inmate to the truck,
that he was going to film
them working, the Wash-
ington County Sheriff's
Department was called.

Vegetable
Field Day
The University of
Florida/Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences
will host its Vegetable
Field Day at the North
Florida Research and Edu-
cation Center in Quincy on
Thursday, June 2. Regis-
tration will begin at 8:15
a.ir and research tours
and demonstrations will
be between 9 am. and 1
p.m. Tb register eall (850)
875-7100.


From Page la


The deputy that responded
advised county crews that
Pitts was within his rights
in filming the operation. At
that point the county left the
work area.
According to Pitts, when
he left his home the fol-
lowing day, the county
returned and finished their
work, making ditches where
none had previously been
dug.
At the hearing it was
mentioned the signs Pitts
erected made it impossible
to grade the road. A mea-
surement made at the site on
Thursday shows the posts
are 13 feet, 6 inches from
one another. Additional
measurements taken at the
point were the county dug
the ditches showed a width
of less than nine feet.
Pitts said he installed the
no trespassing signs the
county is concerned with
at the direction of then-
sheriff, Fred Peel. The ac-
tion was necessary because
of repeated harassment by
several people, all, accord-
ing toiPiut. related to their
original incident involving
one person, a four-wheeler
and a horse.
Pitts said the original
warrant was issued because
the alleged trespasser told
Pitts he could go anywhere
he wanted in the county and
Pitts was not going to stop
him. Since mid-summer
2004, Washington County
Sheriff's deputies have
made repeated visits to
the Pitts home. They have
been summoned concern-


ing trucks peeling out in
the Pitts' yard, high-pow-
ered lights being shined in
the bedroom windows, re-
peated horn-blowing in the

wee hours of the morning,
and at one point, a physical
altercation was reported.
Prior to the current law-
suit, Pitts took the matter be-
fore county commissioners
on two separate occasions.
He explained he was not
there to close the road, as
other parties claimed. All he
wanted was for the county
to not grade the road in
front of his home. Pitts ex-
plained to commissioners
that grader operators had
lifted their blades as a nor-
mal practice as long as he
had lived there.
In a heated confronta-
tion at the second meeting,
Commission Chairman
Ronnie Finch told Pitts if he
did not remove the posts in
question, the county would
do it for him. Pitts said if
they did, he would defend
his property. It is suspected,
this terse exchange precipi-
tated the counts 's injuni'tion
request.
County Administrator
Peter Herbert said Holley
has advised public works
to maintain the road as
they have been, with no
widening of the roadway
until Register makes his
ruling. Pitts said Register
took the information under
advisement, and that a rul-
ing on the county's request
for an injunction will be
made at a later date. That
rulimg came on May 25.

Kate Smith celebrates DARE graduation


Retired Washington
County Judge Perry Wells
was guest speaker at the
annual D.A.R.E. gradua-
tion held May 16 at Kate
M. Smith Elementary
School. He based his talk
on things he had learned
at various times during his
life.
"Ive learned that life
is a lot like a scooter car,
not much happens if you
don't do some pedaling,"
'he began.
After noting that edu-
cation, experience and
memories are the three
things no one can take
away from you, Wells
added, "I've learned that
you can do something in an
instant that will give you
heartache for life."
Many of the things
Wells spoke of could hit
home with the students,
but none so well as the
abo\ e statement. One
cigarette. alcoholic drink.
or drug could be the thing'
to change a child's way of
living forever.
Mike Walker is the
D.A.R.E. officer for Wash-
ington County. His guests
for the graduation exercise
were Sheriff Bobby Had-
dock, School Superinten-
dent Calvin Stevenson.
Perry Wells, retired judge,
Terri Tanner-Smith, 'KMS
principal, and Yolanda
Kolmetz, assistant princi-
pal.
D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse
Resistance Education)
has for years been teach-
ing fifth-grade students to
'just say no" to drugs and
alcohol. Later, the program
added violence and now
there is a decision-mak-
ing model, Define, Assess,
Respond and Evaluate, to
help think before taking a
chance.
There are seven fifth-
grade classes, totaling 159
students, at KMS. Three
from each class were cho-
sen as first-, second-, and
third-place winners of a
D.A.R.E. essay contest.
These students were given
medals on colored neck
ribbons and prizes during
the graduation exercise.
The first-place winners are
asked to read their essays
to the crowd made up of
teachers and visiting par-
ents.


"D.A.R.E., four letters
when put together have
a lot of meaning. Avoid-
ing drugs and violence,
that's what!, wrote Mer-
edith Saunders in her essay.
"D.A.R.E. is a very useful
program that teaches kids
like me about friendship
and saying No to drugs,
peer and personal pres-
sure," she said.
Saunders listed the rea-
sons drugs are so bad for a
person and explained the
way the decision-making
model can help defeat the
urge to try them. "I've
learned many things about
drugs, from how bad it is,
and how to say no to it,"
she added.
Speaking of the pressure
kids find can themselves
under, Saunders said "Peer
pressure is when people
are pressuring you to do
something. It can be good
or bad. Who are your peers.
you. ask? .Your peersp,:ar: ~
people your age. Personal
pressure is when you are
alone and something is
tempting you. In D.A.R.E.,
we learn many things
about peer and personal
pressure."
Caleigh Wells, another
first-place essay win-
ner, told the audience of
her peers, "I know what
you're thinking. "It's that
you would never do drugs
or drink. Why does that
apply to you?" It may not
n6w, but it will, she said.
That's why I'm going to
tell you about the D.A.R.E.
decision-making model,
tobacco, alcohol, and peer
pressure. "Listen up, this
is important and I'm only
going to say it once."
Wells listed the dangers
of drugs: ie tobacco brain
damage, mouth, throat,
lungs, heart and liver. "Oh
don't worry. There's only
200 known poisons," she
added. "Yeah, you'll be
cool with stench and yel-
low teeth! You'll start
looking older than you
are."
She also said drinking
can stunt your growth.
"Even if you don't drink,
being around people who
do can be dangerous," she
said.
"Do yourself a favor and
don't drink," she urged
after listing other problems


with alcohol.
Writers of first-place es-
says, in addition to Saun-
ders and Wells, are Cozetta
Register, Maya Roulhac,
Ryan McIntyre, Michelle
Cota, and Breanne Head.
In addition to the medals,
these winners received lu-
cite plaques and a $50 U.S.
Savings Bonds each.
Winning second-place
prizes of little stuffed
Daron Lions were Iyo-
nah Brown, Austin Bass,
Dylan Lawson, Sam Car-
roll, Chelsea Mitchell,
Leeazia Taylor, and Alex
Hamilton.
Third-place essay win-
ners received D.A.R.E.
products. They are La-
vance Gonzalez, Holley
Cutts, Jenae Ritter, Shelby
Joiner, T'Keah Sharpe,
Cory Chamberlin and Jac-
lyn Morris.
All of the students
received a D.A.R.E. cer-
i, tifiea.kshqywing they had
completed the program.
The fifth-grade teachers
- Amelia Buchanan, Debbie
Bush, Anne Chenault, Pris-
cilla Prough, Laura Stokes,
Janice Jeter and Amy Rudd
- were called to the stage to
help present certificates to
their students.
Judge Wells spoke after
that and Principal Tanner-
Smith made her remarks.
In his closing com-
ments, Walker thanked his
guests and gave them little
D.A.R.E. products as me-
mentoes.
Everyone was invited
to a cookout at PALS Park
following the ceremony.
They played games and
watched as Officer Walker
presented certificates
of appreciation to area
businessmen who make
the D.A.R.E. program in
Washington County pos-
sible through their spon-
sorship.

Crop Disaster
Program
Eligible producers
may sign-up for the Crop
Disaster Program (CDP).
Sign-up began March
14. The closing date for
this sign-up will be an-
nounced at a later date.

at Pattillo's Restaurant, lo-
cated behind the Vo-Tech
office, on Tuesday, May 24
at noon.
When President Bill
Howell rang the bell, it
was time to get started. All
present sang the patriotic
song, pledge of allegiance,
and bowed their heads in
prayer.
Guests were introduced
by Peter Herbert. The elec-
tion of Kiwanis officers
will be next week on May
31.
It was also announced
that next week will be the
last week that Pat Salter,
who has been playing
piano for Vo-Tech and
Kiwanis for years, will be
there.
The 2005 Kiwanis Inter-
national Convention will
be held in Honolulu, Ha-
waii on July 2-6 this year.
David Williams and one
other member will attend,
and the club voted to give
$1000 towards their trip.
Featured program at the
meeting was Love-In-Ac-
tion, presented by Barry
Rockburn, volunteer direc-
tor and resident manager
of the Armstrong House.
Love-In-Action is a com-
munity effort sponsored
by the West Florida Baptist
Association which helps
families and individuals
with needs like bills, food,
finding a place to live, and
other emergency assis-
tance. They also provide
appliances, clothes, and
furniture when available.
Being .an evangelistic
outreach ministry gives
them the incentive to wit-
ness to people while help-
ing them. The program has
been open for a little over
three years, and is located
behind the old Chipley
High School in the old ag-
riculture center.
The Armstrong House is
what used to be the John-
son Apartments, located
behind Chipley Motel. A
Salvation Abuse Center is


"abusing" the association.
Abused families, families
from burned homes, di-
vorcees forced out of their
homes, and many other
situations are taken in and
helped if qualifications are
met.
The Armstrong House
gives these people a place
to stay for three to five
days, at the most, unless
there is an ongoing emer-
gency. If a home is not
found for them after that
time, they are still housed
on a day-to-day basis.
Food emergencies are
usually funded for one to
two days, or until appli-
cants receive some type
of income. There are rules
applicants must abide by.
The rules are reviewed and
a waiver is signed at time
of acceptance; no alcohol.
smoking, pets, or over-
night guests.
Love-In-Action helps
families from Washing.
ton, Jackson, and Hol
mes counties. For January
through December of
2003, statistics show that
Love-In-Action helped
499 families; 229 of which
needed financial help and
124 who needed furniture.
Four hundred and twenty-
six pieces of furniture
were given to those fami-
lies. Only 49 were turned
down. In 2004, the number
increased to 589 families.
Care and Share plays
a big role in helping with
food services. Each year.
members and postal work-
ers gather food to give out
to those in need around
Mother's Day.
In 2003, 4,215 pounds
of food was given out-Iri
2004, $6,000 worth of food
was added to what they
gathered, giving out a total
of 8 1/2 tons of food.
An upcoming service
being developed is to
coach applicants how to
manage their money when
they have limited income.
Love-In-Action officials
this class will help people
be more successful and
be able to fend for them-
selves.

Northwest Florida Com-
munity Hospital (NWFCH)
announces the opening of
the Sleep Disorder Labora-
tory for the diagnosis and
treatment of potentially
dangerous sleep disorders,
such as sleep apnea, exces-
sive snoring, narcolepsy,
restless leg syndrome, and
periodic limb movement
disorder.
"Recognizing and treat-
ing some sleep disorders
in the early stages may
prevent more serious
cardiovascular and neuro-
logical problems, which
can be very expensive to
treat," stated hospital CEO
Patrick Schlenker.
"We are extremely for-
tunate to have Dr. John
Koszuta, board certified in
pulmonary medicine and a
sleep specialist, serving as
the medical director for our
sleep disorder laboratory,
thus, giving us the oppor-
tunity to improve patient
access and expand our pre-
ventative commitment to
include sleep diagnostics,"
he continued.
"Sleep disorders affect
one out of every four in-
dividuals," stated Koszuta.
"Left untreated, many se-
rious conditions, such as
sleep apnea, may have life
threatening consequences
due to the toll taken on the
cardiovascular and neuro-
logical systems."
Research indicates
that approximately 4 to 6
percent of the population
suffers from sleep apnea,
the most prevalent of sleep
disorders.
Koszuta explained that


the profile of the typical
apnea patient is an over
weight, middle-aged adult.
age 35-55, who snores
loudly, complains of being
tired during the day and
usually has a neck size of
17-1/2 inches or larger.
Those with sleep apnea
will usually have the fol
lowing symptoms: exces-
sive daytime sleepiness.
stentorian (loud) snoring.
gasping or choking awak-
enings, awakenings for
uncertain reasons, restless
sleep, non-refreshing sleep.
poor memory, poor intel-
lectual function, irritabil
ity, personality changes.
morning headaches, and
confusion.
Those with the condi-
tion may be unaware of
their sleep pattern, but are
aware that they wake up
each day unrefreshed and
many times irritable.
Patients who suspect
they may have a sleep
disorder, should bring it to
the attention of their family
physician. He can then de
termine if additional tests
are needed to diagnose and
treat the problem.

Students and teachers
at Chipley High School
are going to be busy this
summer. Several programs
are offered that parents and
students need to-note.
In order to get a head
start on literacy the Sum-
mer Bridge Program be-
gan on May 31. It will be
four days a week for four
weeks. Students may earn
credits in math and read-
ing.
The reading component,
to be taught by Jennifer
Kincaid and Valerie Park,
is the Read 180 program.
The Read 180 program
published by Scholastic
Press is a proven reading
intervention for grades 4-
high school.
This program was pur-
chased for CHS through
the High Schools That
Work grant meets the ac-
countability requirements
of the No Child Left Be-
hind Act. The legislation
,states that five essential el-
ements must be part of an
effective reading program:
(1) phonemic awareness,
(2) phonics, (3) fluency,
(4) vocabulary, and (5) text
comprehension. The Read
180 program has been in
operation at CHS since
January of this year.
According to reading
teacher Valerie Park the
students participating have
made amazing progress.
'The three components of
the R180 Program small
group instruction, indepen-
dent reading, and computer
instruction reach the vary-
ing needs of all students.
Students are asking to
check out books for read-
ing at home and often
discuss with each other the


Splans a


busy summer


books they've read."
All of the students seem
to enjoy this program.
Ninth-grader Donna New-
man said, "It's a lot better
because you pay more
attention to what you're
reading and understanding
it better."
Ashley Griffin said,
"The computer part helped
me a lot." One student
stated, "I used to not like
reading, but Reading 180
is fun and enjoyable, and
now I like reading." An-
other student described the
program; "It's awesome!"
The math component
will be taught by Shirley
Thompson and will focus,
on FCAT math skills.
Initially the Summer
Bridge program was de-
signed for upcoming ninth-
12th grade students. FCAT
test scores are considered,
but students scoring in
the mid range (level 2 and
level 3) are especially en-
couraged. For information,
call 638-6100.
Another literacy initia-
tive is the summer reading
assignment given to all
CHS students. Students in
all classes are REQUIRED
to read this summer and
to keep a reading journal.
English Honors students
are required to read two
books, one of their own
choosing, and one specifi-
cally assigned by the Eng-
lish department.
The assignment was
given to all students. Par-
ents, if your student cannot
produce the assignment
you may obtain another.
from the CHS office. Also,
they may be downloaded
from the CHS website
chipleyhighschool.com.

Perry's Prattle



By Perry Wells


As I suspect any grand-
parent would say, my
grandchildren are the de-
light of my life these days.
My readers prob-
ably know that we have a
grandson, Perry E. Wells
II, the son of Tim and
Debbie Wells. He is age
five, looking forward to
entering kindergarten in
the fall, and an incessant
talker! He is as pleased to
have granddaddy's name
as grandaddy is for him to
have it. When he rides with
me in the vehicle, he is
content to occupy the back
seat, as he is aware of the
danger to children should
an air bag erupt.
Of course, he is con-
stantly talking and asking
questions as we ride. Re-
cently, he came up with a
profound question that has
stuck in my mind. Out of
the clear blue, he popped
up with "Grandaddy, why
does everything always
change?" I have no idea
of what his little mind was -
thinking when he asked
the question and obviously
I couldn't come up with a
plausible answer, but he
accepted whatever my re-
ply was.
I'm sure my grandson's
inquiry has stuck in my
mind because of my in-
volvement in the prepara-
tion of The Heritage Book
of Washington County,
which is currently in prog-
ress. In a project such as
this, change is what it is
all about either in fam-
ily stories or topical ones.
This leads me into a topic,
which is in the process pf
changing thai T"l'anmt to"x-
pound on today.
The legendary Brock
Reunion in Washington
County, which has been
carried on for upward of
one hundred years, is to
change days and location
this year. It will be held in
the Holmes County Agri-
culture Center Saturday,
June 18. This is a change
from Bethel Primitive
Baptist Church on Father's
Day, which has been the
location and day of the
Brock Reunion for prob-
ably 60 or more years.
The event was originally
called "Pa Brock's Birth-
day Dinner,'' celebrating
Thomas Jefferson Brock's
birthday of May 1, 1856. It
was also the birthday of the
oldest child born to Thom-
as Jefferson Brock and
Nancy Jane Yates Brock.
She was Annie Virginia
(Jenny) Brock Anderson,
born May 1, 1875.
Legend has it that the
celebration was first held
at the home of daughter,
Jenny, and her husband,
James Henry (Little Jim)
Anderson. I recently vis-
ited the home place where
the Andersons lived and
reared their large family. It
is located on what is now
known as Pleasant Hill
Road. The only surviving
child of the Andersons is
their son, James, who has
a home on the property
today. In his home at the
time of my visit were Jim
and Jeff Anderson, two of
James' sons, and one of his

dren of Thomas Jefferson Brock and Jane Yates Brock. See how many you can
identify.


daughters, Virginia An-
derson Hewett, who was
busily cooking some fresh
water fish caught by Jeff.
It was hard to leave with-
out partaking of some of
those great-smelling, and
obviously delicious, Choc-
tawhatchee River fish.
The Brock Reunion,
as it came to be known,
shifted to the home of vari-
ous other children of Tom
and Jane down through
the years. It was also held
at the honoree's home in
Hinson Crossroads for at
least one year. Somewhere
along the line, Brackin
School became the site of
the annual event on what
seemed to be its permanent
home.
With the closing of the
school in 1943, the Brock
Reunion was shifted to
'Bethel Primnii \e Baptist
Church where a pavilion
and a long concrete table
was constructed to host
the event. Offspring such
as Myrtle Harrell Davis,
Quincy Lee, Bobby Bryant,
Jimmy Bryant, Bill Lee
and Bob Bush are some of
the "prime movers" in see-
ing that the traditional fam-
ily get together is carried
on year after year. Many of
those attending cannot re-
call a Brock Reunion ever
being held any place other
than Bethel Church.
Even after its one hun-
dred year existence, the re-
union is well attended and
much interest is still being
shown to keep it alive.
James Anderson is the only
surviving child of Jenny.
Charity Brock Bush, Han-
nah Brock Wells, James
William (Will) Brock, Mat-
tie Brock Bryant Vann and
Arkie Brock Bush have no
surviving children.
Surviving Samual Ga-
diah (Sam) Brock is one
daughter, Truedell Brock
Worthington. Corine Brock
George survives Thomas
Jefferson (Jeff) Brock.
John D. Lee and Quincy
Lee are surviving sons of
Della Brock Lee. Mary L.
Anderson 'Vaughn is the
only survivor of Annie
Jane Brock Anderson, and
O.D. Brock Harrell has
three surviving daughters,
Francis Harrell Myers,
Janie Harrell Kendrick and
Myrtle Harrell Davis.

ning another fund-raising trip to Biloxi's Casino Magic

County family are scat-
tered nationwide and possi-
bly worldwide. It has been
nothing short of amazing
how well the annual re-
union has been supported
by this host of offspring
and it will be interesting to
see how a change in loca-
tion and days will affect
attendance and support in
ensuing years.

Bonifay nursing home employee

arrested for alleged neglect
Attorney General Charlie Crist and Fourteenth Circuit
State Attorney Steve Meadows announced the arrest last
week of a nurse employed by a Holmes County nursing
home on charges of neglect of an elderly adult.
Sheila Bush, 52, of Bonifay, was arrested following an
investigation by the Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit, with assistance from the Department of
Children and Families Adult Protective Services.
The investigation 'revealed that Bush failed to properly
care for two residents at Bonifay Nursing and Rehab
Center. Nurses employed by the facility on the midnight
shift noticed suspicious changes in the medical condi-
tions of two diabetic residents, including improper blood
sugar levels.
After providing necessary insulin injections, the nurs-
es reported their suspicions to the nursing director, who
in turn reported the information to the Abuse Registry
Hotline.
Further investigation by the Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit revealed that Bush was allegedly not providing
necessary and proper medical care to the residents, but
documented that the care was being given.
"Nursing home residents expect their caregivers to
look after their needs, not look the other way," said Crist.
"Neglect cannot be allowed to continue."
The case will be prosecuted by the Holmes County
State Attorney's Office. Bush could be sentenced to a
maximum of 30 years in prison and a $30,000 fine if
found guilty of all charges.

June 4, 2005 from 9:00
a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
This free clinic allows
young people to learn the
basics in environmental
stewardship, fishing ethics,
angling skills, and safety.
In addition, environmental
displays will provide kids
with unique chance to ex-
perience Florida's marine
life firsthand. The Kids'
Fishing Clinics strive
toward several goals, but
our main objective is to
provide children with a
positive fishing experi-
ence. Surveys show that
pre-teens who have such
an experience are likely to
become lifetime anglers.
We also strive to teach
children, at an early age,
the vulnerability of our
state's resources. If they
learn this, perhaps they will
use them responsibly.
Fishing equipment and
bait will be provided for


all kids to use during the
clinic, but those children
who own fishing tackle
are encouraged to bring
it. A limited number of
rods and reels will be given
away on a first come first
serve basis. Registration
will open at 9:00 a.m.,
and there is no pre-regis-
tration. This event is a
catch-and-release activity.
Participants must be ac-
companied by an adult. If
you know a future angler or
a young person with a love
for fishing, bring them out
for a morning of fun and
learning on Saturday, June
4, 2005!
Local sponsors are be-
ing confirmed. If you or
your company would like
to help sponsor this event
or if you would like to vol-
unteer at the clinic, please
call Tom Putnam at (850
234-2621 or Gail Gainey

Bernice Kirkland Grindle honored for 50 years of service Awards Dav at VES


Holmes County native
Bernice Kirkland Grindle
was recently honored by
the Pilot Club of Marianna
for 50 years of service.
Grindle was honored at a
luncheon in Marianna.
A 1945 graduate of Hol-
mes County High School
and a 1949 graduate of
Florida State University
with a degree in commerce,
Grindle (still Bernice Kirk-
land) came to Marianna to
teach business at the com-
prehensive school (grades
1-12) that later became
Marianna High School.
In 1955 Bernice Kirk-
land was named faculty
advisor of the Pilot Club's
high school club, the An-
chor Club, and the rest
was history. In those days
the Pilot Club met at the
old Chipola Hotel, and
Bernice Kirkland was soon
heavily involved with the
organization.
"During my 50 years,


I have served in all of-
ficer positions as well as
on many state commit-
tees," she said in a letter.
"I served as Florida state
district treasurer, as well as
on state and international
committees.
She married Robert
Grindle in 1956 They still
reside in Marianna. She
is the daughter of the late
John L. Kirkland (a promi-
nent Holmes County civic
leader and businessman
until his death in 1964)
and the late Mary Newsom
Kirkland. "Mother died in
2001 at age 97, still look-
ing forward to her Holmes
County Advertiser."
- Pilot Club of Marianna
is part of Pilot Interna-
tional, a global organiza-
tion of executive, business
and professional leaders
working together to im-
prove the quality of life
in local communities and
throughout the world.


Vernon Elementary
School held its Third and
Fourth grade Awards Day
on Friday, May 20. After
all of the classroom and
special, area wards were
given, Dr. Bobbie Dawson
presented the James Russ
Award for Outstanding
Scholastic Performance.

gious award, he/she must

Christian disci


REV. TIM HALL, pastor
Blue Lake Baptist Church
While passing a car on I-
10, I ceticed a bumper sticker
that ead "I'm a ..." and then
it had a name of a political ,
party, which was followed by
"and I'm a Christian." I had
many thoughts as I read it,
such as: "Why do they think
they need to defend their ac-
tions or who they are?" "Do
they think they need to clarify
something to someone?" Ba-
sically, "Why make such a statement?"
Then I was listening to what we nowa-
days call a "Christian radio station" and
they were promoting a "Christian busi-
ness directory" in which they claimed
they listed "Christian electricians,"
"Christian plumbers," "Christian Real-
tors," etc. If you listen to the news you
discover there are people who claim they
are "Christian homosexuals," "Christian
prostitutes," "Christian alcoholics," and
"Christians this" and "Christians that."
It seems to me that we have taken a
very honorable word "Christian" and
begun to use it in such way that it has
lost it effectiveness and meaning, in that
it has actually became a slang word just
like the word "hell." People say "hell"
without any thought of the place which
does exist as the eternal abode and pun-
ishment for those who reject Christ as
their Savior. I seriously wonder how
many of these "Christians," if put on
trial for being a Christian, would be
convicted?
And now we are tacking the word
"Christian" on everything so that it no
longer means anything.
The Bible says "they were first called
"Christians" at Antioch" (Acts 11:26).
They were literally making fun of these


people because they had a demeanor
about them that reminded th person of
the demeanor of Jesus Christ as
He walked here upon the earth.
So let's take something very
simple, such as a radio station.
Earlier in my life, I made my liv-
ing for 10 years behind a mike
of a radio station and loved it.
But the station was made out of
wood and bricks and consisted
of electronics of which none
of these things had a demeanor
which made me think of Jesus
Christ. Yes, the station was used to share
the good news of Christ and most of the
employees would tell you that they were
"Christians."
And that brings me to the next ques-
tion. Were they "Christian employees"
then? Or were they sinners who had
been saved by the grace of God? And
is it a "Christian radio station" or an
instrument by which disciples of Christ
encourage and challenge other disciples
of Christ?
In the Bible, believers and follow-
ers of Christ never called themselves
"Christians" even though many of them
were put to death because of their love
for Christ. Yet very few were called
"Christians" by people who watched
their lives. The Bible also teaches that
we should be humble, yet when we use
the word "Christian" to set us apart from
others, are we showing a demeanor that
resembles Christ? I think not.
Personally, I don't think Christ would
put a bumper sticker on His car saying
He was a Republican, Democrat, Inde-
pendent or whatever. But I do believe
He would vote for the person who would
stand for truth and morality regardless
of the party, regardless of what others
thought. And He would not be ashamed


pie?
of the stand He took and He would defi-
nitely let the ones He voted for, know
where He stood and where He expected
them to stand. He would vote for people
who understand that we are all put here
by God for a purpose and that purpose
is to do His will, not ours.
Go ahead, I know you want to ask
me the question, "Are you a "Christian
preacher?" Well my answer is simple,
"What do you think?"
I know that I am a sinner saved by the
grace of God (Acts 2:21; Romans 10:9-
13); and as I live I have the Holy Ghost
living in me and when I die, I know I will
then be with Christ (Philippians 1:21).
I also know that my demeanor is not
that which reminds me of Christ always,
because at times I don't stand strong and
firm on things as I should, and at other
times I am not as humble, loving and
caring as I think He was.
But it is my desire to be more like Him
each and every day, so that makes me a
disciple of Christ, my Lord and Savior
(1 Peter 4:16). I know that many of these
people who I mentioned at the first may
be saved, because they have repented
of their sins at one time and confessed
Christ as their Lord.
But to call themselves a "Christian"
is say they are obedient to the Word of
God as Christ was even to His death on
the Cross. And many of those mentioned
are not obedient even to deny themselves
of things of this world, or they wouldn't
have to put the suffix "Christian" in
front of their title to tell others who they
are. For when we are obedient to God
and His word, and have the demeanor
of Christ, others will add it for us.

JANICE PRICE
"I don't mind helping but don't
ask me to cook anything". That's my
usual reply when asked to participate
in any meal preparation. My cook-
ing skills have not been improving
with age but they are growing more
creative.
A few months ago I tried to bake
innovative pies. It didn't surprise
me that the mixture didn't fill the
pie plates. So many products today
have higher prices and shrinking
measurements. But I was surprised
when I began to put away the baking
supplies. I didn't remember buying
an extra, large can of pumpkin. The
pies were tasty, although the main
ingredient was added to hot, spiced
milk in crusts.
Today, I baked Mother some corn
muffins. I mixed self-rising flour,
egg, milk, oil, and sugar. I spooned
the mixture into a greased muffin
pan, popped it into a hot oven and
started to put away the baking sup-
plies. Oops.
I have noticed various omissions
occur most often when I am rushed
or distracted. I sometimes email
the neighborhood watch president,
"Here are the meeting minutes", but
forget to attach them.
I write things down so I don't for-
get why I am going into the kitchen
or what I need at the store, but I still
sometimes have to drive home to pick
up my shopping list.
Today I neglected to follow an
important physical dress code al-
ways wear matching shoes. I wonder

Statement of Faith
The Bible (Old and New Testaments) is divinely inspired and the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. There is a one God
with a triune nature, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is true God and true Man, born of a virgin, Who died for man's sins
and was raised from 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 be filled 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.

Custom-made miracles Church news


MOE PUJOL
They came to Bethsaida, and some people
brought a blind man and begged Jesus to
touch him. He took the blind man by the hand
and led him outside the village.
When he had spit on the man's
eyes and put his hands on
him, Jesus asked, "Doyou see
anything?" He looked up and
said, "I see people; they look
like trees walking around."
Once more Jesus put his hands
on the man's eyes. Then his
eyes were opened, his sight was
restored, and he saw everything
clearly.
(Mark 8:22-25)
"Off the rack" clothes don't always
fit the way they should. Just ask any
professional football or basketball
player who has tried to find a new suit
at the local department store.
People whose bodies don't fit the
norm have to buy clothes made to fit
their unusual shapes. NBA and NFL
stars have to pay a premium for their
already expensive clothes because
they are specially tailored for them.
In the same way, Jesus "custom-
ized" His miracles so they would have
their intended effects on the recipi-
ents. Through the years, people have,
wondered why it took physical touch-
ing and two separate steps to heal the
blind man from Bethsaida. After all,
Jesus healed others without touching
them. He even healed people who
weren't in His presence.
Why did the healing of this blind
man have to be so different?
Perhaps he was like most of us:
whose faith has to be developedgrad-
ually through repeated encounters
with Jesus. Perhaps, also like most 6f
us, hewas thick skinned and stubborn-
and had to be shown the power of
God in a more intense manner than
most others.
Perhaps this blind man received
just what "suited" him, a custom
made miracle. Ultimately, only God
knows the answer. All we can do is
speculate.
Jesus could turn water into wine
with just a wave of His hand. He
could heal a man's daughter "long


distance" as she lay on her sick bed,
already presumed dead. He could
raise His friend Lazarus from the
dead by just telling him to come out
of the grave.
So, we can only wonder
why it seemed so difficult
to heal one particular blind
man. Was it really difficult,
or did it fulfill some specific
purpose Jesus had?
SObviously, Jesus had a
reason to do it this way, a
reason which is connected
to the whole purpose for
His performing miracles
in the first place.
Jesus came to seek and to save
the lost, to bring sinners to Him. He
taught a new way of living which went
beyond, and yet fulfilled, the religious
system under which people were liv-
ing. He identified Himself as not just
another teacher, but the long-awaited
Anointed One from God, the One
Who would bring God's people back
into relationship with Him.
Miracles ratified Jesus' identity.
He is divine, fully divine, the Word
of God made flesh. He is the Son of
God, born of a virgin,just as predict-
ed by the prophets. His miracles were
designed not just to impress people
but also to certify His identity.
But:Jesus wasn't just some spirit
passing through the natural world. He
is also filly human, a quality neces-
sary for the salvation of mankind. He
is the "second Adam," the One Who
brings us back to God,just as the first
Adam led us away.
Here is the 'secret" behind those
custom-made miracles: Jesus knows
each and every one of us better than
we know ourselves. Every person
who came to Him in faith received a
miracle, but they received it injust the
manner they needed.
The faith of a father was rewarded
with the healing of his daughter. The
faith of a mother at the wedding in.
Cana kept the celebration going after
she gave instructions to do whatever
her Son said to do. The imperfect
faith of a dear sister was expanded
when she saw her dead brother walk


out of his tomb.
A blind man whose heart was so
hardened by bitterness and hate went
through a process of softening when
he encountered Jesus. This rabbi with
a reputation for the impossible came
to his village and touched him. He saw
things in a blurry way, the darkness of
a burdened life gradually lifting from
his heart.
"Could it be true?" he must have
asked himself. "Could I really be see-
ing the way other people do?"
The blind man's seed of faith
started to grow, but it was choked out
by the bitterness, the weight of many
years of rejection and ridicule. He
needed "more" of a demonstration
of divine power than most and he
got it.
Jesus touched him again, "and he
saw everything clearly."
The blind man's faith %%as made
whole, just as his eyes were.
This is God's key to customizing
miracles. Their ultimate purpose is
not healing or financial gain, nor
special favors for believers in this
life. The ultimate purpose of every
miracle and miracles happen every
day -- is to strengthen and to perfect
the faith of believers.
How this process works for each
individual is different, because each
person is unique. That's why miracles
aren't standardized; they're custom-
ized. There are no "off the rack"
healings; each is tailor-made.
No matter how small, though, each
seeker must bring his or her seed of
faith to Jesus. Remember,Jesus could
do no great miracles among those in
His hometown of Nazareth "because
of their unbelief."
Yet, he went about the countryside
another areas, ministering to marn;
where the Bible says, "He healed
them all."
:Bring your faith.to God's throne
of grate today. You'll:get your special
miracle, designed just for you; and,
your faith will grow stronger in the
process.
Best of all, unlike those expen-
sive suits the ball players wear, vourr
miracle is completely free.

Forget from page2
whether anyone noticed a shopper
wearing one brown shoe and one
black sneaker.
I'm not alone in dealing wiih
embarrassing or comical lapses of
memory, but bloopers are minor
faults, which affect mi pride and can
usually be corrected'with a little in-
genuity or a change of shoes.
Major faults affect others and can
do irreparable damage to a relation-
ship. For example, when I forget to
remember the standard Jesus set and
raise my voice in anger, using words
I can't erase. When I am rude, pushy
or abrasive to others. When I am
impatient anddon't take the time to
listen to someone who is lonely or to
slow my step to another's pace. When
I focus on another's imperfections and
am blind to my own. When I forget
to remember that a smile or a word
'of praise can make a difference in-
another's day)
Today I sprinkled a little corn meal
on top of the muffins and stirred each
with the tip of a spoon handle. The
muffins tasted fine, though different.
But a sprinkle of corn meal on the
open wound of someone I have of-
fended won't relieve the pain.
