Fowler project update
Seven adult tigers may be com-
ing to the Florida panhandle for
the Jim Fowler Life in the Wild
animal park planned for Bonifay,
according to a report on Chan-
nel 13. Bill Roose of the Fowler
Center's management program
confirms the ,Center is consider-
ing a donation of several tigers up
for adoption, but did not confirm
where the tigers may be housed
until the park is built.
Roose says part of the mission
of the Fowler Center, based in
Ohio, is to find homes for unwant-
ed animals, like tigers, instead of
seeing them euthanized by own-
ers who can no longer take care
of them.
Many animals planned for the
Jim Fowler park in Bonifay are
being housed at an undisclosed
location in nearby Okaloosa
County, according to the report.
Wild animal facilities in the area
include Sasquatch Wildlife Park
and Zoo located in Crestview and
The Zoo located in Gulf Breeze.
Both display animals from all over
the world.
Kevin Gaines of the Fowler
Center told Chipley Newspapers
via email that that PAWS, The
Fowler Center, Life in the Wild,
and Blue Dolphin II do not cur-
rently possess any tigers at all.
Provisions are being made and
considered for accepting animals
such as the mentioned tigers,
Gaines said.
Gaines said that anything
of importance will be posted
for the public on www.jimf
owlerslifeinthewild.com or

New year, new direction


MOE PUJOL
As announced on today's front page, the Wash-
ington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser
are now operating under new
ownership.
I know that some in the com-
munity may have a knee-jerk
reaction along the lines of "Oh,
no, we've lost our local papers,"
but this is totally inaccurate. In
lect, the change will enable us
to be even better local papers,
se r\ ing our communities with
the added resources of a major
newspaper organization but with
the heart for building and celebrating all the things that
make fving in Washington and Holmes counties one
of thro great blessings m life. .
During my 32-year career, I have always been
committed to community service and journalistic
excellence. I believe our local newspapers should
reflect the lifestyles of the people who live here and
record for everyone the events that mean so much
to us - births and deaths, celebrations and festivals,
meetings and greetings, and so on. We also regularly
remind today's residents of our rich heritage and his-
tory and promote the things that promise to give us
a great future. We celebrate our community, and we
work for its progress.
At the same time, this doesn't prevent a community
newspaper from performing its job as a watchdog for
the people. We have a duty to keep up with govern-
ment, and our primary focus as your newspaper is to
keep an eye on local government. We also record the
activities of law enforcement and the courts, and we
strive to present this information in a balanced man-
ner, not sensationalized to sell papers, but offered as
information valuable to everyday citizens as well as the
business community.
We believe that recording the activities of our young
people is important. Crime reporting may reveal some
of the problems we face as a community, but record-
ing the academic and athletic achievements of our
children and youths underscores all the good things
about growing up in this area.
Of course, these are all high callings, and we are
only human. We make mistakes sometimes, and oc-
casionally we may miss an event. We don't want this
to happen, and that's where our readers play such an
important role. When we catch an error, we will cor-
rect it immediately. When you catch an error, notify us
immediately; and it will be corrected. Accuracy and
fairness are the qualities we demand of ourselves, and
you should expect no less from us.
Our news staff covers regular beats and seeks out
information as a part of its regular routine, but our
readers play an important role in letting us know
what's happening in the community. Don't hesitate to
call us, e-mail us or write us about events you think


are important. We'll be there; or if there is a conflict
with other events, we'll be glad to share the informa-
tion and pictures you provide on the pages of our
newspapers.
As for our new ownership, there will be many ben-
efits of having the resources of Freedom Newspapers
at our disposal. We will be able to bolster our online
presence, as our website will become part of a larger
information delivery system on the Internet. We will
have access to more technical support at every layer of
our operation, and this will actually "free up" our staff
to do what they do best - provide you with personal
service at the local level.
Our staff remains largely intact, with the excep-
tion of my wife Brenda, who has worked with me for
the past 25 years. She has taken this opportunity to
pursue.a.-econd career in another businessshe loves,
t'ie car iusness: Those wihioow Brenda know she is
a sports car enthusiast, but not very many know how
much she likes well made cars with fine tuned engines,
a passion that goes back to her youth. Since the statute
of limitations has expired, I will also reveal that she
even did a little drag racing during her teenage years
in Geneva, AL. Another of our "secrets" is that she's
the best driver in our family. I especially don't see so
well at night.
Otherwise, we are all here, doing the same jobs
many of us have done for the past three decades.
Interestingly enough, I began my newspaper career
at the News-Herald in Panama City, the flagship of
Freedom Newspapers in Northwest Florida. I was an
all-around reporter then, covering everything from
courts to sports, groundbreaking to break-ins.
Our state editor was the lateJulian Webb, a Chipley
native who convinced me that moving to his hometown
paper would enable me to learn our business more
completely and more quickly than if I remained at a
larger paper. He was right. I probably learned more
than I wanted to in the early years because I had never
planned on running a newspaper press, but the expe-
rience I have gained has been invaluable. As Julian
predicted, I have learned an awful lot. My life here has
been an experience I wouldn't trade for anything.
So, I followed Julian's advice and made the move
back in November 1974, with a standing offer from
News-Herald Managing Editor Frank Pericola to return
to the fold whenever I was ready. Frank has also passed
on, but events have developed in such a way that the
offer still stands.
Coincidentally, my last assignment for the News-
Herald, the night before I moved to Chipley, was to
cover the Chipley-Port St. Joe football game in Port
St. Joe. Quarterback for the Tigers that night was its
present coach, Dilly Webb. The Tigers were coached
by the late Walt Henders.. .yes, we're.all growing just
a little older.
And I'm sure Coach Webb can testify, as I do today,
that certain things have a way of coming full circle in
our lives.

Quotes of 2006
BILL STEIGERWALD
The war in Iraq was by far the top interview topic of the year. But there were
also Q&A's with the likes of John Stossel, Sean Hannity, Lee Hamilton and Gourmet
magazine editor Ruth Reichl on such subjects as media subjectivity, the unraveling of
the Republican Party, the 9/11 Commission and the politics of food. Here'are some
of the year's best quotes:
IRAQ
I don't think we're going to make it for another threeyears there. I think there's going to be a civil
war in Iraq if the president doesn't change course. The public won't standfor US. forces being caught
in a civil war If all hell breaks loose in Iraq, those forces will be coming home much, much sooner -- to
the electoral peril of Republicans. I don't think they have another three years to wait.
-- Ivan Eland, director, Independent Institute's Center on Peace & Liberty (March
25)
We should keep the troops there, in the desert, looking after the international boundaries, making sure
there are no atrocities, making sure oil and gas goes out, otherwise leaving Iraq to the Iraqis.
--Daniel Pipes, conservative columnist, counterterrorism analyst and author (April
1)
I don't see anytime soon that we can depart, because we would take an insecure situation and make
it even more insecure.
-- Dan Senor, former adviser to Paul Bremer, the administrator of the Iraq Coalition
Provisional Authority (June 17)
It's time to change direction. The public knows this. Some people don't agree with me, but as a whole
most of the people believe it is time to either redirect ourselves or redeploy our troops. I think 25,000 or
30, 000 in that region would be plenty.
-- U.S. Congressman Jack Murtha (Jan. 21)
When was the last time you, in a local newspaper, had given to you the press release on the local
citations for the Bronze Star the Army Commendation Meda, the Silver Star the Distinguished Service
Cross or the Navy Cross?... Why should the American people be reminded, regularly, about Haditha,
instead of being reminded that we have real, live, walking talking war heroes living among us?
-- Col. Ollie North, host Fox News' "War Stories" (July 1)
What is a little surprising to me here in the United States is that Afghanistan seems to be very much
the minor military preoccupation here. Andyet I believe that what is happening in Afghanistan is of
greater strategic importance than what is happening in Iraq.
-- Liam Fox, British Conservative Party "shadow defense minister" (Oct. 21)
We really owe the Iraqi people, having upset their apple cart; we owe it to them to not just abandon
them at their biggest moment of need as their country descends into civil war
-- Scott MacLeod, Time magazine Cairo bureau chief (Dec. 12)
I would be a lot more sympathetic with the Bush administration if they had said they had decided
to go into Iraq substantially because of oil. It would have made sense.
-- Kevin Phillips, policy analyst and author of "American Theocracy" (March 15)
Years from now, I hope to be meetingyoung Iraqis who don't really remember the war very well but
who can date their own emancipation from it.
-- Christopher Hitchens, writer/pundit/atheist (Jan. 6)
TERRORISM
I think ultimately (the war on Islamic terrorism) is winnable. But it's going to be a long time before
there is a victory declared. There are different bouts and rounds, but it's not going to be like it is in the
movies. The end is just not going to be that way.
-- Steve Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism (Aug. 19)
I think that debate on the cost-benefit of security measures and on the balance between security and
freedom will just be apart of our lives now for a good time to come.
-- Lee Hamilton, co-chair, 9/11 Commission (Sept. 9)
NORTH KOREA
We have defended the Republic of Korea -- South Korea --for over a half century. It's timefor them
to step up to the plate andfor our troops to leave and get out of harm's way.
-- Richard V Allen, former Ronald Reagan foreign policy adviser (Oct. 14)
PRESIDENT BUSH
I have been very critical of (President Bush) the pastyear - rather tough on him. But as an indi-
vidual, I think one can not argue with the fact that he is reliable as to his word he's brave and he has
'a quitfity ojf going forward i he blievs' he ri ght .ind simply aceptiin the slings rid 'alSr6-& oflhe
world. And that is something to be admired in a politician.
-- Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal columnist and ex-presidential speech writer
(Jan. 28)
IMMIGRATION
If you want to have large-scale unskilled immigration, then you better get rid of the welfare state
first.
-- Steve Camarota, Center for Immigration Studies (April 8)
There is no willingness on the part of our government to implement the immigration laws of our coun-
try or to enforce them in any way Nor are they willing to secure our border even in a time of war
-- Bay Buchanan, chairman of Team America (March 4)
THE REPUBLICANS
Both sides of the aisle are enamored of pork and increased entitlement spending, which is still where
65 or 58percent of federal spending goes. Butfrankly, one of our disappointments is the president. He's
the only person around who's been elected by the whole country. He's got to show the kind of national
leadership that says, "When I say I'm going to veto" -- and he has said that now on 133 separate
measures - he means it.
-- Ed Fuelner, president of The Heritage Foundation (March 11)
The growth of government has gotten out of control. I blame the Congress more than I blame even
the administration. In that case they've become too entrenched in their own power They've become
Democratic light. I think they need to go back to the principles that got them into those positions of
power in the first place.
-- Sean Hannity, co-host "Hannity & Colmes" (Feb. 17)
MEDIA SUBJECTIVITY
The alarms are endless. Almost all are wrong. Andyet the failure of the previous alarms to kill us
does not make us less fearful when the press moves on to the next alarm.
--John Stossel, "20/20" anchor and author of "Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupid-
ity" (May 20)
Imake it point -- and a point of pride -- to have people not know my politics. Idon't think they are
relevant to a show that analyzes the news, so Iprefer to keep them to myself off the air, as I do on.
-- Eric Burns, "Fox News Watch" host (Sept. 2)
THE ECONOMY
The American economy is very strong. I call it the "Greatest Story Never Told." I think that profits
are strong Productivity is strong Job creation is strong Tax rates are low. I think the outlookfor the stock
market and the economy is extremely positive. People should be in the market. Stocks are undervalued.
And this expansion cycle will go on for I would say at least three orfour more years.
-- Lawrence Kudlow, economist, host of CNBC's "Kudlow & Company" (June 10)
FIDEL
Fidel is not a socialist hero if one thinks of the socialism in Sweden or Europe. If we are talking
about Soviet socialism, that's what he is. In that sense, he's more like Stalin. I think Fidel has more
followers outside Cuban than inside Cuba.
-- Frank Calzon, Center for a Free Cuba (August 5)
FOOD
Our food in this country is very much determined by our government food policies. If we have a crisis
about obesity, which we do, it has to do with government policy. If we have a diabetes crisis, which we
do, it has a lot to do with the fact that we have been subsidizing the wrong foods.
-- Ruth Reichl, editor Gourmet magazine (Sept. 16)
2006 ELECTIONS
It's going to be a very good Democratic year.
-- Stuart Rothenberg, editor, "The Rothenberg Political Report" (Oct. 7)
The big thing that's happening in this election is that independent voters who in the past two elec-
tions have tended to act -- in terms of their voting behavior -- more like Republicans than Democrats
suddenly have shifted hard to voting Democratic....
Joe Trippi, Democrat campaign consultant' (Nov. 4)
I think (losing Congress) was a cold slap on a cold face on a very cold morning that will hopefully
wake up the conservative movement within the Republican conference within the House.
Rep.Jeb Hensarling (Texas), chairman, House Republican Study Committee (Dec.
16)

Sex predator hog-tied and returned to county jail


A registered sex predator
is back behind bars. James
D. Blevins was reported to
have violated his supervised
probation and felony war-
rants were issued.
When deputies went to
a residence on Hwy. 2A in
northwest Holmes County to
serve the warrants, Blevins
took to the woods. He was
apprehended in Geneva
County, Ala. near Samson.
Holmes County Sheriff's
Investigator Eddie Eaton
said that probation authori-
ties issued the warrants when
Blevins allegedly violated
various terms of his proba-
tion, including moving from
his registered residence.
He was judged guilty in
September, 2002 for lewd or
lascivious, battery on a vic-
tim 12-15 years old among
other charges. Blevins is a
registered sex predator with
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, and predators
must be on supervision for
life.

were there. Blevins imme-
diately barricaded the bed-
room door and fled out the
window into the woods. The
search began with the help
of tracker dogs from Holmes
Correction Institute.
Eaton said as a fresh team
of dogs was being set, infor-
mation was received from
Geneva County Sheriff's
Department that a man
was seen running through
the woods in west Geneva
County. Deputies shared in-
formation and the description
matched that of Blevins.
As tracking moved into
Geneva County, a call came
reporting that a man was hog-
tied in a hay field near Sam-
son. Upon arriving deputies

8A, Washington County News, Wednesday, January 3, 2007


My Christmas, for many
years, has included a visit
to the Brackin School and
Bethel Church community
and to play "santa" to some
of the remaining older resi-
dents of the area.
A stop at our old home
place is usually included.
Our sister, Muriel, and
husband, Roy, do an ex-
cellent job of keeping the
house ready for a welcome
'drop in" by any of the
siblings. Brothers, Jim and
Max, along with Roy, keep
the grass mowed and the
debris removed from the
aged pecan trees.
The temperature did not
allow for a fire in the old
fireplace this year until after
Christmas.
The spot is always one
of great reminiscing for
me. It was the place where
all the family gathered in
the winter time in order to
keep warm around a roar-
ing fire. Bathing was done
here in that we did not have
indoor facilities, nor did
we have any form of heat
in the house other than the
wood burning stove in the
kitchen. We definitely kept
it fired up to the maximum
during extreme cold days,
not only for cooking, but
for heat as well.
Around the fireplace is
the place we dug into our
Christmas presents. Santa
left them in shoe boxes
placed under our beds on
the night before Christ-
mas.
We could always bet on
each shoe box containing
oranges, apples, raisins,
with seeds, and still cling-
ing in pods. A small toy,
mostly rubber balls for the
boys and a small doll for
the girls, completed the
contents of our Christmas
container..
Our dad purchased fresh
coconut at Christmas. He
punctured the shell and
passed it around for each
young un' to sip. It really
wasn't delicious but none
of us would decline our
turn. The coconut was
opened with daddy doling
out our share of the fresh
coconut meat. It had a de-
lectable taste, but the pro-
verbial supply was always
limited. That probably was
a blessing in disguise, as
fresh coconut is extremely
rich and will put the little
tummy into upheaval if over
eaten.
Another excitement with
the fresh coconut was see-
ing the shells burn in the
open fireplace. It was a
cheap substitute for fire-
works as we observed the
blue flame an a "quickie"
hissing sound as the mate-
rial was quickly consumed
in the heat.
, Peanut shelling came to
my mind as I sat by the old
fireplace. Each year, we
saved and shelled the best
peanuts for seed. Everyone
else in the community did
the same, therefore it was
made a social event as
neighbors gathered in to
help each other with this
chore.
The rejected peanuts
were parched and used in
homemade peanut candy,
placed in cane syrup and
cooked into a brittle or


taffy. This was served to
everyone.
Our old open fireplace
had a mantel. I recall mea-
suring my height as I grew
up by standing under the.
"mantel piece" and observ-
ing how near my head came
to reaching the top.
Thinking back, it didn't
take long before I found I
could not stand under the
mantel at all. Maybe it was
lowered in some of the re-
modeling of the old house.
I guess our house could
have been called what
we later knew as a "shell
home." As we sat around
the fireplace, we could ob-
serve the inner walls were
only a little more than half
sealed. That was always a
good place, or maybe a bad
place, to lose one's new rub-
ber ball or other toy.
Clothing items, such
as caps, jackets, and baby
garments were forever be-
ing thrown "behind the ceil-
ing." That always required
a long stick and a flash light
in order to retrieve the lost
item.
The overhead ceiling and
the east gable of the old
house was also incomplete,
allowing for daylight to be
seen through the opening
and also permitting the
laying hens, which roamed
the outside yards, to fly in
and lay their eggs in the loft.
Their "cackling" gave away
the secret and the eggs were
immediately recovered for
their special uses.
At Christmas in 1938,
our parents made a trip to
Whitesburg, Kentucky, to
see our uncle, William Perry
Wells, and family, Max, at
the tender age of two, was
the only one of us making
the trip. The real purpose of
that trek was for daddy to
deliver Mae Niles Ander-
son and her two-year-old
son, Jimmy, to Kentucky
to join her husband, Sand-
ers Anderson, who had gone
there for employment in the
Kentucky coal mines, along
with our uncles, Perry and
Josh.
Picture the scene of three
adults and two babies trav-
eling that distance in a 1937
Chevrolet pick up truck.
Yes, they had their share of
misfortunes along the way
as dad was not accustomed
to driving in the snow.
Meanwhile, "back at the
ranch," sons, Jim, Perry
and Clyde, were having
a heyday experimenting
with firecrackers which we
had been able to obtain un-
known to our grandparents
with whom we were left
in charge. We were in our
house, at the noted fireplace,
without a fire, and using it
for a place to explode our
cheap fireworks. When an
individual firecracker did
not function, the idea was
the break it open, light the
powder to make it "spew."
Six-year-old Clyde was at-
tempting to do this, when

the missile decided to
explode...as he held it in his
hand. Needless to say, that
hand was badly burned.
We were forced to tell
our grandparents what had
happened. They, and later
my parents, applauded the
efforts of eleven-year-
old Perry for "doctoring"
Clyde's hand with a liberal
application of baking soda
mixed with cane syrup. I
had seen it used in our
household for burns and
obviously it immediately
started the healing process
for Clyde.
This Christmas, I did visit
my auIE


son, in her home and found
her well. Another visit was
with cousin, Quincy Lee,
a resident of the Bonifay
Nursing Home. He was in
good spirits as he recovers
from a stroke experienced
several months ago.
I could have spent the
day visiting others in that
facility including Ann Lee,
Mayola Nelson Young,
Leon Anderson, Joe White,
Bertha Mainer Sirman, Pat
Anderson Cook and oth-
ers that I am not thinking
of right now. Hopefully, I
will get back for another
visit soon. We concluded

EQIP program
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has a conserve
tion program that can help farmers and ranchers pay for
conservation practices that prevent erosion, improve water
quality, and provide habitat for wildlife.
The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP)
is a key program under the 2002 Farm Bill that provides
federal cost-share funds to working farms and ranches for
conservation improvements. The 2007 EQIP application
period will remain open until Dec. 15, 2006.
EQIP promotes agricultural production and environ
mental quality as compatible goals. This program provides
incentive payments and cost-share funds to private agricul
tural and livestock producers to help reduce the presence
of invasive plant species.
Plant species-such as Cogongrass, Tropical Soda
Apple and Climbing Fern can have devastating effects on
Florida's pasture and forest land. Once these non-native
plants invade an area, they rapidly decrease the quality and
quantity of forage and cropland available which leads to
environmental damage and economic loss. To conserve
these important natural resources, Florida NRCS has made
it a state priority to reduce the presence of Category I inva
sive plant species on our cropland, pasture and forestlands
through EQIP funds. All target Category I invasive plant
species are listed on the Florida Exotic Pest Plant.
For more information on the 2007 EQIP program.
contact Bob Booth or Forrest Dilmore at the Washington
County Ag-Center. 850-638-1718 ext. 3.


Pastor Mike Orr joined Dan and Ellis as the trio sang
a touching rendition of I Have Seen The Light. Orr
concluded the program with a short inspirational talk
to remind us why we celebrate Christmas, that the
real reason for Christmas is the birth of Jesus.

The fifth- and sixth-grade
class at Washington County
Christian School recently
visited Restoration Home
of Panama City. It is a place
set up to help women who
are in need.
The residents possibly
have made wrong decisions
that led them down a path
which left them homeless,
broken and without hope.
Restoration Home extends
the love of God as well as
the hand of God to these
ladies in need.
"This was a great experi-
ence for our class, especially
during the Christmas holi-
days," the group's teacher,
Mrs. Whitehead, said.
Restoration Home has
no government funding
and operates on generated
income from others who
give their financial support
or they give of their time in
helping the home with their
annual fund-raising project.
During Christmastime, Res-
toration Home bakes cook-
ies and decorates them with
homemade icing and sells


them to a catering company
in Panama City.
"Our class participated
in decorating some of the
cookies," the teacher said.
"We enjoyed helping in this
because we know that it
would be a big help to get
some orders filled before
Christmas."
The students made a
tour of Restoration Home
and watched a video on
the ministry of the facility.
They also shared the love


of Christ when they carried
much needed items to help
fill the home's food pan-
try, for their fund-raising
Christmas project, along
with gifts for everyone of
the women who are cur-
rently residents there.
"We also delighted them
with sounds of Christmas
carols and warm smiles that
filled their hearts with joy."
the spokesman said.
The teacher said the
school found the visit was


a great opportunity to show
the students that it is truly
a blessing to give to those
who are less fortunate, than
it is to receive.

a seizure is defined as
an uncontrolled event of
electrical activity within
the brain. These impulses
from the brain can cause
uncontrolled movement to
other parts of the body, and
the result can be muscle
contractions, severe shak-
ing, convulsions, possibly
progressing to a coma-like
state. The cause of these
electrical events is still a
mystery in both animals
and humans.
"The good news is that
most seizures in animals
last only a short while, usu-
ally only a minute or two,"
she says. "Anything over
five minutes is considered
a life-threatening situation
and the animal needs medi-
cal attention immediately."
Seizures are classified
into two broad categories,
generalized and partial.
A generalized seizure
occurs when the animal's
limbs become stiff with
paddling movements. The
animal may fall on its back
or side, have excessive sali-
vation and can have a bowel
movement.
A partial seizure often
involves movement of one
portion of the body, such
as facial or limb twitching.
The animal may act like it
is trying to catch a fly. Ev-


Help for pets
Animal shelter in Chipley wants and desperately needs
for the winter months ahead old blankets, towels, rugs,
treats and toys for the animals. Any type of donation
will be greatly appreciated. Donations can be dropped at
the Grooming Shop, 707 7th Street. Drop off times are
Tuesday through Saturday 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. For more
information, call 850-238-9919.


idence of a partial seizure
may be the beginning of a
generalized seizure.
If an animal has more
than one seizure, the event
is termed epilepsy. Epi-
lepsy can occur from an
unknown cause (asymp-
tomatic) for which there
may be a hereditary basis,
or from a known cause
(symptomatic).
Asymptomatic epilepsy
is most common in dogs
and cats between one and
five years of age and may
have a hereditary basis,
Blue-McLendon adds.
Certain breeds such as
German Shepherds, Labra-
dor Retrievers, Dachshunds,
Collies and Beagles are
prone to having hereditary
epilepsy. "If epilepsy is in-
herited, it can be passed on
to the next generation and
there is a lot of research be-
ing done on this very topic,"
she notes.
Examples of symptom-
atic causes for epilepsy in-
clude toxicity (sometimes
from flea products), infec-
tious diseases, nutritional
deficiencies and brain tu-
mors. "If a dog or cat is five
years or older and suffers
from seizures, there may
be a greater likelihood of a
brain tumor," Blue-McLen-
don explains.
Research has shown that
if a seizure lasts longer than
30 minutes, the odds of sur-


viving are reduced.
"If a seizure does occur,
the first thing to do is not
to panic," she says.
"The owner should make
sure that.the animal can't
hurt itself, such as knocking
its head against a hard ob-
ject or falling down a flight
of stairs. And you should
never put your hand down
the animal's throat even if
it appears to have trouble
swallowing. That will do
more harm than good with
potential risks of being bit-
ten."
Treatment for seizures
usually involves short-term
and long-term therapies,
Blue-McLendon explains.
Valium is the most com-
monly used drug to stop a
seizure, and there are other
drugs used such as phe-
nobarbital and potassium
bromide.
"An animal that suffers
from seizures can still live
a relatively normal life,"
she adds.
"The goal of treatment
is to decrease the duration,
severity and frequency of
seizures. Early interven-
tion with medication will
most likely provide better
success in the long-term
seizure management of a
pet."

The wagging tail


JANICE PRICE
The phone rang on Christmas day and a friend asked,
"We're leaving to deliver some dinner plates. Is it all
right to drop off one for you? We'll be by in about thirty
minutes."
I decided to close my three dogs in the bedroom where
they were sleeping on their blankets, so I could answer the
door in peace. Just as I decided this, I received another
telephone call. But, by holding the cordless phone in my
left hand and moving slowly to protect my painful left
arm, I was able to move the damp laundry hanging on
the doors elsewhere. It was slow and tedious.
This house was built in the 1920s and the bedroom
door into the kitchen doesn't stay closed. I retrieved a
ten-pound weight to block the door from inside the bed-
room. Then I quietly backed out the door into the living
room and closed it behind me.
Feeling pretty pleased with the success of my plan, I
turned around and discovered Merci and her wagging
tail were on the wrong side of the door. I forgot Merci
likes to nap on a throw in the living room and I neglected
to count heads. I just assumed Merci was among the
sleeping dogs.
I have had the same experience with sin in my life. I
abhor something I know God calls sin - it could be any
sin, such as anger. I slowly and painstakingly work at
overcoming it and moving it out of my life. I think I have
finally made a little progress, turn around, and there it is
staring me in the face, tail wagging, tongue hanging out
and eager to see what mischief it can get into. Does this
sound familiar in your life too?
This is the time of year when folks make a list of New
Year's resolutions. One will decide to lose weight, an-


Tolerance
even though it was contrary to mine.
While the traditional definition of
tolerance allowed individuals to hold
whatever views they desired, this new
definition tends to suppress freedom
of expression altogether. This newly
defined idea of tolerance is recog-
nized by many as the backbone of the
"politically correct" movement.
In order to differentiate between
these differing views of tolerance, it is
time to give this linguistic innovation
a name of its own. Perhaps, it should
be called the "new tolerance."
Is this discussion a mere semantic
"tempest in a tea pot?" Not at all. It is,
indeed, a very practical issue. Listen
to discussions on education, politics,
morality or foreign policy and what


other to exercise regularly, one to quit procrastinating,
another to give more and be less selfish, one to stop lying
or stealing or drinking or being unfaithful - . Everyone
has something that needs to be addressed whether or not
it is on a formal list of resolutions.
Anyone who has ever made a list of New Year's resolu-
tions knows how hard they are to keep. You are convicted
of the need to change yourself or your circumstances, but
the reality is that just because you have decided to pains-
takingly make a list of changes, launching and sustaining
the changes takes work, commitment and perseverance.
In might also take some sacrifice..
There is nothing magical about the year changing from
2006 to 2007. As you step from one year into the next
one, don't be surprised when you turn around and find
your propensity for sin is on the same side of the year you
are, with tail wagging, tongue hanging out, and eager to
see what mischief it can get into.
But don't despair. For we have not an high priest which cannot
be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points
tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Heb 4:15
Sin can appear so cute and enticing at times, an in-
nocent act or word that sneaks up and catches you with
your guard down. Always wear your armor and stay close
to Christ, in the Word.
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto
them that lookfor him shall he appear the second time without sin
unto salvation. Heb 9:28
Have a blessed 2007.

do you hear? Demands that you prac-
tice tolerance of all views. That is to
say, you are morally wrong if you do
not agree with that view.
Clearly, the "new tolerance" is
gaining ground as an axiom in pub-
lic policy, especially in education. Is
that not what is occurring in the class-
room when little children are forced
to accept, by teachers and texts, ho-
mosexuality as a normal (read valid)
life-style? And this even though the
opposite view is being taught in most
homes. In the future, the "new toler-
ance" may require that we ask what
radical Islamists want. Are they not
the ultimate or extreme practitioners
of the "new tolerance?"
What is the effect of the "new tol-


from page 3
erance" on the freedoms the found-
ers fought for? How far is it from the
"forced worship" that Roger Williams
said "stinks in the nostrils of God?"
Not very far, it seems to me. Stated
another way, does, not the "new tol-
erance" erode the basic freedoms the
Bill of Rights was designed to guar-
antee? I think so, but then we are free
to disagree-and that's a freedom we
should be thankful for this holiday
season.

The salvage yard


REV. TIM HALL, pastor
Blue Lake Baptist Church
Most people get excited in
.. . -ii anticipation of a new year.
We like to think that because
-" it's a new year we've got a
i clean slate to work from.
But the opposite is actually
true, because we carry all our
mistakes, hurts, pains, disap-
pointment and even the bills
that we had in the previous
year into the new one. The
sad fact is that it doesn't take us very long to
realize that all our dreams and hopes that the
new year would bring, are actually just that,
hopes and dreams.
Though many made resolutions, which you
have probably already broken, let me share
one with you that will be very beneficial. It's
very simple; it is simply submitting yourself to
be yielded to be the person that Christ would
have you be. Maybe the following analogy will
help you understand the benefit of yielding
yourself to His will.
To share this I will have to share something
personal with you. I like old cars. I like to go
to car shows, and I like to fix up old cars that
others have thrown aside. So that means I like
to go to what we call in the mountains, junk
yards. Some of you may call them wrecking
yards and some even call them auto graveyards.
But actually the most appropriate way to de-
scribe these places would be to call them salvage
yards. Because the cars are not actually junk,
they may be wrecked, but no one is actually
going to wreck them again. They are not like
the human bodies that have been put in the
grave, because you see, there is nothing that
we as humans can do to change the decaying
process of the body in the grave.
But to that auto that's been put aside for one


reason or another, there is something that can
be done. So it's not actually an auto graveyard,
but more or less a salvage yard.
Myself and many other people enjoy go-
ing to the salvage yards, or just getting cars
that people have shoved to the back yard for
20 or so years, and spend a little time, money
and elbow grease, for the joy of seeing these
vehicles transformed, often to more elegant
vehicles than they were when they were first
built. I wish I had the time to tell you about
some of these cars and trucks. Of how bad
they looked to begin with, and how sharp they
were, when we got through with them. The
funny thing is, usually when I bring them home
and start driving and working on them, my
wife and some friends don't want to admit they
know me. But once it becomes a showpiece,
they get exccited for an invitation just to ride
through town.
With that thought in mind, let's be honest
and take a good look at ourselves, and the
way that God may see us. As He looks at us,
could He also see a salvage yard, and would
love the opportunity to show others what He
sees in us? If we would be truthful, we would
have to admit that we have failed, because we
have tried to control others and ourselves, thus
turning ourselves into wrecks of our former
selves. So actually the new year offers very little
hope, because of the baggage, that. we carry
into it. But the Lord says it doesn't have to be
that way. If we are willing to yield ourselves to
His control as He walks through the salvage
yard, for He offers to make us new, again (2
Corinthians 5:17-21).
As you read 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 you will
notice a reoccurring word, "reconciliation"
which means; "Someone or something is
completely altered and adjusted to a required
standard." To put this in simple "Tim Hall
terms," God is saying that if we will yield to


His masterful hand, He will recycle us so that
we might become what He intended for us
to be.
No, He does not change, but He changes
us, that we might have a relationship with
Him. He makes in us a new creation, with a
new tongue, heart and a new commandment
to love one another. In doing so, He takes old
hurtful parts away and restores them with
those that edify Him (Galatians 6:15; Mark
16:17; John 13:34; Ephesians 4:17-32; Co-
lossians 3:1-25; Hebrews 10:20-26). He even
gives us a new name and a new home (Revela-
tion 2:17; 21:1-9).
Remember the old cars that have been
restored. One thing I have learned is that the
job is never finished. As long as it is exposed to
the air and elements, and as long as I enjoy it
by driving it, which I will, it will get scratched,
maybe dented and parts will wear out again.
And I will just have to enjoy repairing it over
and over again, because I have never seen a
car that can repair itself.
The same is true with you and I. As long
as we are in this world, even with the new
spirit living within us, we will have spiritual
battles that will continue until we receive our
new body. Paul knew this, and had the same
struggle as he confessed he had to die daily to
the yielding of the masterful hand of his Lord.
So until that day when all things become new,
yield all that is within you to Him. If you will,
you will enjoy the New Year and the New You
as you share His love with others and encour-
age them to also be yielded to His masterful
hands (2 Peter 3:13-14

SThe new tolerance
L.JOHN VAN TIL, Ph.D.
Americans joyfully celebrate the holiday season
in a variety of ways while tolerating one another's
religious and non-religious traditions. During the /
rest of the year, many Americans practice a new ; ' -r .
kind of tolerance that differs from the country's -'
historical roots.
SHistory books recount the story of Roger Wil- ..
liams, the founder of Rhode Island. Williams :
wanted religious freedom. He is known and ad-
mired by many because he practiced tolerance and
encouraged freedom in his colony. Williams is fre-
quently quoted as saying, "Forced worship stinks
in the nostrils of God." Thus, dissenters from prevailing religious views in
the colony were tolerated, therein enjoying freedom of conscience to hold
whatever views seemed right to them. But Williams' tolerance didn't earn
him the same: He was condemned for his views and banished from the Mas-
sachusetts Bay Colony. Yet, a century later, the founding fathers enshrined
Williams' views of freedom and tolerance in the first clauses of the Bill of
Rights.
As a result, freedom of religion, speech, the press and much more have
been the bedrock of American society for more than two centuries-albeit
not always without flaws in practice. The principle of tolerance-defined as
the sense of having a fair and objective attitude towards others' opinions, re-
ligious views or other practices-was rooted in these freedoms. However, the
way the culture defines tolerance has changed dramatically in recent years.
Evidence of a new view of tolerance first appeared on my cultural radar
a few years ago while I was visiting an old friend. In the midst of one of our
frequent, spirited discussions about current political events, she insisted that
S I should be more tolerant of her views. I assured her that I always tried to
S exercise tolerance of others' views and that such an attitude was essential to
my scholarly life. "No! No! You are'not tolerant!" she said forcefully After a
time of parsing and defining terms, it was clear that her use of tolerance did
not mean the same thing as the time-honored, traditional meaning of the
term. She was using an old word in a new way, practicing a kind of linguistic
neo-orthodoxy.
And what exactly did she mean? Being tolerant, she insisted, meant that I
3 had to agree with and accept her view as not only valid but equal to my view,

o..n Divine Forgiven
It seems that human nature is.such that no one likes to admit
,being:;wrong. Perhapswe hesitate"to admit being wrong, and
tend to blameb0thers, becausi'we fear reprisals and do not
want. to lose facb. !
SHowever, as the poet said,"To err is human, to forgive divine."
Everyone makes mistakes, and if we cannot admit them out
loudjat least we can make peace in
our hearts.
God ordained forgiveness, and the Bible tells us that if we are
truly sorry for our sins, He will forgive us. Jesus told Peter that
he should forgive not seven
times, but seven times seventy.
Our lives are truly our own respon-
sibilities. If we regret our mistakes, God
will forgive us; and if God can forgive
us, perhaps we can find it in our hearts
to forgive those who have wronged
us. Truly, the gift of forgiveness comes
5 from our Heavenly Father.
And forgive us our debts, as we
Forgive our debtors.
C i K.J.V. Matthew 6:12
