Meyers pretrial in March
A bond hearing was held Wednes-
day, February 14 for a 72-year-old man
charged with second-degree murder.
Bobby Gene Meyers allegedly shot
Wendell "Butch" Kirch in the neck
outside a mobile home in Holmes
County's Bethlehem community on
January 23. Meyers reportedly ap-
proached the 26-year-old victim about
a domestic violence incident involving
the suspect's daughter.
Since this is not a capital murder
case, the maximum sentence Mey-
ers could get, if convicted, is life in
prison.
A motion for bond reduction was
held before Circuit Judge Allen Reg-
ister, and the motion granted bond set
at $50,000 with electronic monitoring,
authorized to take care of cemeteries,
no contact with victim's family. Meyers
has been released on bond. A pretrial in
the case is scheduled for next month.

Scam reported
SRecently, companies have been ad-
vertising to local residents the promise
of extra income in return for evaluating
businesses that operate locally.
After responding to the advertise-
ment, residents are contacted by mail
iith what looks to be a legitimate
cashier's check and instructions to
evaluate a money wiring service. The
resident is asked to quickly deposit the
check, send money through the wire
service of the business noted, and then
evaluate the customer service of that
business.
The cashier's check sent with the in-
structions, it said to cover both the cost
of the money order and payment to the
resident for the evaluation. Little does
the resident know; the cashiers check
is fraudulent and the money they have
sent by wire transfer is 'being picked
up by a thief.
This scam has been brought to the
attention of the Washington County
Sheriff's Office and while some of the
details have been changed, the basic
scam remains.
If you receive a cashier's check
in the mail and you do not personally
know the sender, always treat it as if
it were fraudulent. Take the cashier's
check to your personal financial institu-
tion and have them check the validity of

Planning for the future for Holmes and Washington counties


Farris: Next two
weeks 'crucial'
for Fowler project

JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Anew concept in regional planning,
called an optional sector plan, is gain-
ing recognition statewide. There are
three such plans being tried, including
the West Bay Sector Plan for the new
Panama City/Bay County International
airport. A conference was held Friday
at the Holmes County Chamber of
Commerce to provide information on
the plan to leaders from Holmes and
Washington counties.
The conference was hosted by West
Florida Regional Planning Council
(WFRPC), and focused on the possibil-
ity of using a sector plan to develop the
proposed Jim Fowler's Life in the Wild
project. This project, which includes a
wild animal education center and as-
sociated developments, would take up
about 7,000 acres just south of Interstate
10 at the Bonifay interchange.
Senior Planner Bruce Stitt intro-
duced the subject to the well-attended
conference. The discussion will be
covered in more depth at a meeting this
Friday in Marianna.
Stitt noted that comprehensive
plans, which govern development,
be reviewed every seven years. This
process allows leaders to review how
well the comp plan is serving the area
it addresses, as well as make changes
where necessary.
Senior Planner Paul Miller described
a comp plan as containing elements
that local government uses to address


Barbara Farris of Blue Dolphin II gives an update on the Fowler
project.


future land use, housing, infrastructure,
conservation, recreation, open space,
coordination and capital improvements.
Several of these elements are required
under state law.
Plans can be amended twice a year,
and large-scale amendments can only
be submitted twice a year. There are
provisions for emergency changes,
such as the arrival of a development of
regional impact. Small-scale amend-
ments are allowed.
Regional Planner Alan Gray de-
scribed use of Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) as part of a comp plan.
This is the new standard for land-use
planning, and uses computer technol-
ogy and computer aided design (ICAD)
to create a color-coded map that covers
existing land use. Each parcel on the


map is its exact size, exact shape, has
its location, its zoning and demographic
data.
"For anyone mapping a city, this is
the best map," Gray said.
Miller broke down the definition of a
development of regional impact (DRI)
like the Fowler proposal. A DRI would
be a development which would have a
substantial impact on the health, safety
or welfare of citizens of more than one
county. Designating a development as a
DRI allows for a wide variety of agen-
cies, including the developer, govern-
ment (primarily local government) and
regional planning, to deal with issues
early in the process. The developer is
heavily involved in such a process.
Charles Gauthier of the state Depart-
ment of Community Affairs (DCA)


described the optional sector plan be-
ing used for the airport in West Bay. A
sector plan would involve an agreement
between the parties involved authoriz-
ing preparation of the plan; an overlay
(using the GIS), and detailed plans for
each area (each plan must be 1,000
acres or more). For example, the West
Bay airport plan includes plans for the
airport itself, industrial development,
housing, and conservation. The sector
plan also identifies the most important
planning issues and requirements for
coordination between parties.
A sector plan (which must be for
at least 5,000 acres) would combine
the comp plan and DRI process. It is
designed for large-scale developments
and emphasizes urban development. A
sector plan is also more complicated
and takes longer to develop.
The Fowler Park and its related
developments would be best served by
a sector plan, according to Regional
Planner Kevin Wagner. There are sev-
eral DRI-type projects that would take
several years to develop.
WFRPC would have a "scoping
meeting" with local leaders and recom-
mend whether a sector plan would be
appropriate. Local government would
hold a public workshop and review the
sector plan process, and then decide
whether to proceed. Additional meet-
ings would be held as necessary. The
various governments involved would
amend comp plans to adopt the sector
plan and put it in motion. DCA would
review and if the pan is approved, de-
velopment orders could be issued.

Clyde B. Wells
There are many special
. days in the month of Febru-
.ary which have affected my
life. Possibly all have been
mentioned in the almost
four years of my writing
the "prattle." Some are
extremely important to me
- and may be worthy of re-
peating.
A Valentine card sent
-:to Perry Wells by Hester
Lucas on Feb. 14, 1947,
renewed a friendship that
blossomed into a courtship
that culminated in marriage
Five years later.
. My own dear mother,
Marie Harris Wells, had a
Feb. 16 birthday.
,: On Feb. 2, 1952, the
"prattler" graduated from
the University of Florida.
'The birthday of Carole
Richards, bookkeeper at
- Washington County News,
is Feb. 2. She knew my
' brother, Clyde, long before
knowing me as she grew up
in DeFuniak Springs and is
aware that Clyde died on
her birthday.
It was on Feb. 2, 1990,
that a somber Sheriff Fred
Peel and his Chief Deputy,
Captain John Jenkins, came
to the county judge's office
and brought the devastating
:news to me that my brother,
.Circuit Judge Clyde B.
:Wells, along with his pilot,
:Jim Loudermilk, had been
;killed in a fiery Pensacola
:plane crash.
In the planning of Clyde's
:funeral, I reluctantly de-
clined a request to speak at
:the service. I felt sadness
:and emotion would over-
come me and I would be un-
able to express the thoughts
that were bearing heavily in
my heart and mind.
Instead, I later retreated
'to a private place and wrote
some of my memories of
Clyde. These were shared
;with Don Renfro and used
in a Washington County
News article written by
Don. He was a free lance
writer, in addition to serv-
ing as bailiff to the county
court.
It is from this material
that I present this week's
"Perry's Prattle."
Clyde Brown Wells was
born Aug. 14, 1932, sixth
in the sequence of the ten
children of Hugh and Marie
Wells.
Clyde was always an ani-
mal lover, an outdoors man,
a fisherman, a hunter and in
later years, a football fan
and golfer. He always had a
pet dog and a favorite cat in
his formative years. Every
calf born into the cattle herd
was "his."

A youthful Clyde B. Wells, left, and Circuit Judge
Clyde B. Wells, just months prior to his untimely
death.


When my brother, Jim,
and I graduated from high
school and left the farm,
Clyde took on our chores
at a tender age. He was
butchering hogs, milking
cows, cutting and haul-
ing sugar cane for syrup
making, sawing wood, and
doing other jobs which
normally an adult did. He
learned to drive'the family
pick up truck out of neces-
sity and long before he was
old enough to receive a
license.
He always kept his eye
on the nearby Cook's Mill
pond and he knew when the
wild ducks would be flying
in. He knew how to use "set
hooks," or place a basket or
net for catching fish. He was
the first in our household to
own a reel and rod, and to
purchase a boat.
Clyde's life always
seemed to be on course.
Early in life, he expressed
his plans to be a lawyer:
He was nicknamed "judge"
while still in high school.
He was president of the
senior class at Vernon High
School when he graduated
in 1950.
After a short stint at Tally
Ho and Christo's in Panama
City, Clyde went to work at
the St. Joe Paper Company's
box plant in Port St. Joe. He
was drafted into the military
and served in the U.S. Army
in Korea.
Later, he received a B.A.
degree from Florida State
University, made an unsuc-
cessful run for county judge
of Washington County in
1960, and was employed
in the Florida Prison Sys-
tem when he entered law
school at the University of
Florida.
Clyde and Esteena Kry,
a Jasper, Fla., native, were
married in 1961. In 1964,
with a law degree in hand,
and as member of The
Florida Bar Association,
he began his law practice
in DeFuniak Springs. Kel-


vin Clyde Wells and Kelly
Elizabeth Wells Horton are
the two children of Clyde
and Teena.
Clyde served as attorney
for several county and city
governments. Later, he was
an assistant state attorney.
He stayed active in the com-
munity and was in demand
for his humorous speech-
making ability. He had a
keen interest in people and
an uncanny ability to judge
human behavior.
Clyde won his race for
Circuit Judge in 1972. He
remained unopposed for
the office.
As a judge, Clyde regu-
larly visited schools and
read to the younger students
from his own collection of
books. He always found
someone in his life who he
felt was worthy of some
special attention and he
found a way to point that
person in the right direc-
tion.
My brother maintained
his interest in sports and
hunting and kept a pack
of bird dogs, two of which
perished along with him in
the plane crash. He once
owned and trained a faithful
German shepherd, Prince,
and a noted retriever, Reno,
who survived his master.
In the short 57-year life
span of Circuit Judge Clyde
B. Wells, born and reared
in humble circumstances,
he lived to fulfill many of
his lifelong dreams. He
enjoyed a host of friends, a
loving family, and achieved
his goal in becoming a law-
yer and a judge.

He did not live to see his
son, Kelvin, graduate from
law school, become a prac-
ticing attorney and achieve
the position of Circuit Judge
in DeFuniak Springs, the
very assignment Clyde held
for 17 years. Kelvin and
wife, Amy, have four-year-
old Reagan. Surprisingly,
she is already speaking of
her granddaddy as if she
remembers him person-
ally. Daughter Kelly is mar-
ried to an attorney, Wiley
Horton, and they reside in
Tallahassee. The four-lane
structure spanning Choc-
towhatchee Bay at Freeport
is named the Clyde B. Wells
Bridge.
Surely the full potential


of my brother's service
was never fully realized.
Lawyers who practiced
before him as judge spoke
of Clyde's ability to im-
mediately get to the "meat"
of legal issues presented
in court hearings. Among
his peers, it was generally
believed that he could well
have served in a higher
judicial capacity, either as
an Appeals Court Judge or
even a Justice on the Florida
Supreme Court.
The memory of my both-
er, Clyde B. Wells, and the
fruits of his labors and ac-
complishments, still live on
in the hearts and minds of
those who loved him. As the
years continue to roll by and


the date of Feb. 2 arrives,
the surviving large family
and the numerous friends of
Clyde will always remem-
ber the terrible loss and the
significance of the day.
See you-all next week.

SIf you're not a liberal when you'reyoung, then you have no heart. -- Idea originated by Francois Guisot (1787-1874),
Si If you're not a conservative whenyou're old, then you have no brain, popularly attributed to Winston Churchill

EdITORIAILouNWe,


Casting the Firs
The philosopher Diogenes
is said to have wandered
around ancient Greece hold-
ing a lantern and seeking to
find an honest man.
My fellow Republicans,
sans lanterns, are now wan-
dering around the political
landscape seeking to find the
perfect Republican presiden-
tial candidate.
I don't know if Diogenes
ever found that honest man,
but I do know that those
Republicans are never going
to find the perfect candidate,
simply because he does not
exist.
Some Republicans insist
that the only perfect candidate
would be a clone of my Dad,
Ronald Reagan. Aside from
the fact that there is no such
thing, it's important to recog-
nize that Ronald Reagan, as he
often admitted, was anything
but perfect.
One of the criticisms about
former Massachusetts Gov-
ernor Mitt Romney focuses
on his record concerning the
abortion issue. We are told
by the modern day Diogenes
clones that he can't be trusted
to fight abortion because he
once, more or less, supported
a woman's right to butcher
her baby.
It may come as a surprise
to these purists, but Ron-
�ald Reagan once supported
abortion too. Yet nobody
ever questioned his strong
pro-life credentials after his
conversion to Republicanism.
They accepted his sincerity.
Why can't they accept Mitt
Romney's?
Romney's record shows he
should be totally acceptable to
all conservatives, yet because
of one dubious question con-
cerning the validity of his con-
version to the pro-life side,he
is deemed unsuitable to carry
the conservative banner.
The same is true of Rudy
Giuliani. On every major is-
sue, he is a solidly conserva-
tive and extraordinarily adept
executive, but because he
backs abortion and some form
of gun control, America's
mayor, the hero of 9/11 and
the man who did the impos-
sible by cleaning up New
York, is all but ruled out as a
2008 candidate.
Not one of the major can-
didates is free of some real
or imagined flaw that offends
some conservatives.
This is madness, and if
it does not stop, the GOP is
going to lose the presidential
election in 2008. In the search
for the perfect candidate we
are going to end up with an
imperfect candidate. Keep in
mind the truism that agree-
ment with someone on most
issues and disagreement on
others is seen as normal,
but should you agree with
someone on every single is-
sue imaginable, well, to put
it plainly, psychologists say
you're nuts.
I recently got a letter from


(Litmus) Stone


Making


Sense


Michael Reagan

a conservative Christian orga-
nization that asked me if the
current GOP candidates are
the best the Republican Party
has to offer.
"Is it possible that GOP
conservative ranks are this
thin?" the letter writer asked.
"Has the GOP nothing better
to offer? Should not pro-
family pro-life voters also
want a low taxes and limited
government candidate before
they vigorously support him?
Increased taxes and expanded
government hurts everyone.
Was Ronald Wilson Reagan
an anomaly and did he repre-
sent the values of his party?
"These GOP candidates,"
the letter instructed me, "are
little better than Bob Dole,
Gerald Ford, or [George]
H.W. Bush. Did anyone notice
they all lost?"
This makes me wonder if
anybody can stand up to the
litmus test these people are
applying to candidates.
Ronald Reagan had one
litmus test he applied to can-
.didates. Were they Republi-
cans? If they were he backed
them all the way. He would let
the party choose the candidate
and he would support and vote
for the candidate. He didn't go
sniffing around trying to6fna_
some flaw in their character
or their past. Once nominated,
they were his choice.
And nobody was more
candid in admitting that he
was anything but perfect than
my Dad. He knew that like
all men, he had his flaws and
he spent a lifetime combating
them. Had today's GOP litmus
test been seriously applied to
him, he could not have passed
the test.
The Democrats don't have
litmus tests. If the nominee is
a Democrat, they support their
candidate all the way, and if
they lose it isn't because they
didn't fight like demons for
their man or woman.
If we want to win in 2008,
Republicans had better wake
up, and quit talking Ronald
Reagan and start being like
Ronald Reagan.


Everyone celebrated
Martin Luther King Jr.'s
birthday January 15 recog-
nizing the religious leader
who led a faith-based cam-
paign against government
racial discrimination.
Yet few noticed that
January 15 was Religious
Freedom Day, created to
celebrate the constitutional
right, which 300 million of
us still enjoy, just as did the
Reverend King.
In his proclamation to
note the observance, Presi-
dent George W. Bush called
on all Americans to, "com-
memorate this day with ap-
propriate events and activi-
ties in their schools, place
of worship, neighborhoods
and homes."
In their schools? Yes. As
the Supreme Court noted in
1969, public school students
do not "shed their constitu-
tional rights to freedom of
speech or expression at the


schoolhouse gate."
Despite what you might
have heard about "separa-
tion of church and state,"
the expression of religious
beliefs remains a consti-
tutionally protected right,
even in public schools.
Many school officials
need an education on this
point.
Just last month, for ex-
ample, school officials told
an Illinois high-school se-
nior that the statement she
wanted in the yearbook was
too religious and couldn't
be submitted.
About the same time, an-
other high-school senior in
Washington state wanted to
write a religious children's
book for a project, but was
denied because the school's
policy requires projects
be sectarian, not religious.
Maybe you've experienced
something similar closer to
home.


-- n-both cases, officials
reversed their position after
attorneys from the American
Center for Law and Justice
based in Washington, D.C.
sent letters 'to the schools
explaining that the U.S.
Constitution guarantees stu-
dents religious freedom and
freedom of speech because
these are unalienable, God-
given rights, not privileges
permitted by men or ben-
efits bestowed by the state.
ACLJ's mission is to
"educate, promulgate, con-
ciliate, and where neces-
sary, litigate, to ensure that
those rights are protected...
." The organization keeps
very busy.
If anyone is unclear on
these rights, the U.S. De-
partment of Education sums
them up this way:
*Students can pray, read
their Bible or other religious
books and talk about their
faith at school during school


hours.
*Students can organize
prayer groups and religious
clubs and announce their
meetings.
*Students can express
their faith in their class
work and homework.
*Teachers can organize
prayer groups and Bible
studies.
*Students may be able
to go off campus to have a
Bible study during school
hours.
*Students can express
their faith at a school event,
including graduation cer-
emonies.
On this nationally pro-
claimed Religious Freedom
Day it was a good time for
public school teachers, prin-
cipals and other officials to
mention these rights to their
students.
It's good to mention ev-
ery day.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


To The Editor:
My name is Irene Skrabal-
ak. We purchased the Sinclair
Franz house at 1300 Church
Avenue two years ago this
April. We have come to enjoy
our retirement in this unique
city of Chipley.
One thing that bothers me is
there are no American flags at
gravesides of our Veterans in
Glenwood cemetery on flag
holidays. There isn't even an
American flag at the entrance


to this cemetery, but that's for
another time. I have plans of
having American flags at our
brave Veterans' gravesite by
Memorial Day,2007. Upon
inquiry at City, County and
Veterans' Affairs offices I
have been told there is no one
real list of these Veterans.
Everyone sent me somewhere
else. Being a senior citizen
I turned to the all knowing
angels of learning, the library.
Thank you Librarians, you are


truly wonderful people! I was
able to compose a list of Veter-
ans buried at Glenwood.
I have walked through
much of the cemetery and
have managed to add about
twelve others'that weren't
listed. I have been told, and
confirmed that some time
back an Eagle Scout troop
plotted Glenwood. I am cur-
rently trying to get in touch
with Mr. Robert Sapp to get a
copy and therefore match the


list I have with the plot they
composed. My main concern
at this time is that I may in-
advertently miss someone. I
would appreciate if somehow
your paper could make your
readers aware of my intentions
and to contact me to make sure
their dearly departed veteran
is not overlooked when the
American flags are posted.
I will be happy to make my-
self available to anyone with
information. I'm not trying to


sell anyone anything. I want
to honour these brave souls
who have make my freedoms
possible. Once I have the list
and location I want make it
available to the Library, AM-
VET Post 007, the Veterans
Affairs office and anyone else
that would like to know.
Wouldn't it be nice if I
could add stories from the
families, both of veterans
and non-veterans to a web
site. Your cemetery must


contain a lot of history. One
gets just a little hint by walk-
ing thorough Glenwood.
I would appreciate any and
all assistance you could in
helping me make the dateline
of Memorial Day, May 28,
2007. I am a member of the
AMVET Ladies Auxiliary
Post 007 where my husband
is a lifetime member. Call me
at 850 624 1679 (cell).

OPINION

One legislator and small business owner's take on the affordable Insurance and 'Hurricane Crisis'


DON BROWN
Guest Columnist
Can Florida's environ-
ment afford "affordable"
insurance?
Every elected official
who has tried to fix Flori-
da's insurance problems has
met with more frustration
than success. One of my
biggest frustrations is the
silence of Florida's envi-
ronmentalists.
The environmentalist
community can always be
counted on to support limits
on coastal growth and op-
pose unwise or uncontrolled
development. Today, we're
learning that government
actions that distort market
forces, in particular, ac-
tions that subsidize insur-
ance costs, create powerful
incentives for unwise or
uncontrolled growth.
It's time to consider
whether true market pric-
ing of insurance, where
consumers pay the real,
unsubsidized cost of living
along our vulnerable coast,
may be the best way of pro-
tecting the coast.
Try a little thought ex-
periment. Let's say owners
of Hummers and other big
SUVs complained to the
government that the high
price of gasoline was mak-
ing their vehicles unafford-


able, and the businesses
that depend on SUV sales
complained that unafford-
able SUVs would have
devastating ripple effects
throughout the economy.
So the government decides
to provide "affordable"
gasoline to SUV owners,
and it decides to tax owners
of Priuses and other hybrid
vehicles to support the SUV
subsidy.
Is there any doubt about
what would happen if Pri-
uses were taxed to make
Hummers more affordable?
Inevitably, Hummer sales
would go up and Prius sales
would go down.
Thankfully, the govern-
ment did not do anything
that stupid a few months
ago when gasoline topped
$3 a gallon. And (as any free
market conservative would
have predicted) Hummer
sales went down and Prius
sales went up.
Our state and federal
governments have respond-
ed very differently when
it comes to demands for
"affordable" homeowner's
insurance. The federal gov-
ernment created the heav-
ily-subsidized National
Flood Insurance Program,
and the state created the
heavily-subsidized Citizens
Property Insurance Corp.,


Diabetes support group
The Better Life Program at Washington County Health
Department is sponsoring a free diabetes support group
for Washington County.
'The group will meet at Blue Lake Community Center
the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30 until 7 p.m.
March 13, Michael Cole a registered dietician, will speak
on controlling diabetes through nutrition.
April 10 will be about diabetes complications, identi-
fication and prevention. May 8 will cover learning about
medications and medical care. June 12 will be on living
with diabetes, mobilizing family and friends.

which is relying on more
than $2 billion in subsidies,
taxpayer dollars and assess-
ments on property owners,
to cover the deficits it ac-
crued during the 2004 and
2005 hurricane seasons. As
costly as insurance from
Citizens is, Citizens' pre-
miums are far more "af-
fordable" than they would
be in the absence of that $2
billion subsidy.
To make matters worse,


a substantial part of that
subsidy goes to owners of
vacation homes and invest-
ment properties.
.This year, Congress de-
feated proposals to force
owners of vacation homes
to pay the full actuarial cost
of their flood insurance and
the Florida Legislature de-
feated proposals to require
Citizens to charge an un-
subsidized rate for vacation
homes.


Everyone wants insur-
ance to be affordable, but
everyone has a different
definition of affordability.
Subsidies may make sense
when they kick in only after
a very serious hurricane,
and subsidies may make
sense temporarily if that's
what it takes to keep people
from losing their homes.
But we need to figure
out what kind of "afford-
ability" Florida can afford.


For the people who care
the most about our fragile
environment, the immediate
question is whether Florida
can afford a coastal devel-
opment policy that includes
subsidized insurance for
vacation homes.

SPagers gt swt ree against PC


Tigers get sweet revenge against PC


Can the Tigers gets an-
other crack at Marianna?
It's possible. Chipley will
travel to Hamilton to play in
the 3-3A Regional Semifi-
nals following a 66-60 win
over Pensacola Catholic
Tuesday night in Pensacola.
Marianna whipped DeFu-
niak Springs 72-46, setting
up a possible second show-
down in the state semifinals
Wednesday, February 28 in
Lakeland.
Of course, Hamilton
County and Ribault will
have a say in this. The Ti-
gers must get past Hamilton
County, 48-44 winners over
Episcopal of Jacksonville.
Ribault beat Taylor County
68-53.
Down to the wire
Even without two start-
ers, the Crusaders gave


Chipley a fight, according
to the Pensacola News-
Journal. Catholic led 33-31
at halftime, fell behind by
eight during the third quar-
ter, cut that deficit to four,
then fell behind by eight
points on three separate
fourth-quarter sequences,
only to rally back each
time.
Junior guard John Long
missed a three-point shot
with 14.8 seconds remain-
ing that would have tied
the game and possibly
forced overtime as Chipley
avenged last season's play-
off loss against Catholic.
The Tigers gained control
in the third quarter. Zach
Lee scored 10 of his game-
high 21 points during the
stretch, headlined by a piv-
otal three-pointer midway


through the quarter for a
five-point lead.
"It's been a hard year for
this team with me getting
here late," said Chipley
coach Andy Colville told
the News-Journal. "You've
got to give these seniors
credit. They came out and
played extremely hard."
Trailing 63-55 with 1:49
remaining, Catholic made
one last run. David Kooi
finished off his best game
with a inside basket with
56.1 seconds remaining.
Kooi finished with 18 points
and 16 rebounds.
Chipley missed the front
end of a one-and-one seven
seconds later. Mike Bous-
son followed with a three-
pointer -- the only one
Catholic made -- to make
it a one-possession game.


After another missed free
throw, the Crusaders had
their shot to tie on Long's
near-miss three-pointer.
Lee converted a one-and-
one with 13.3 seconds left
to seal the win.

Ponce deLeon's tough inside defense kept Cottondale at bay most of the night.


PdL on the way to the Final Four


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
It's back to the final four Thursday
as the Ponce deLeon Lady Pirates
(23-6) took a hard-earned 37-28 win
over arch-rival Cottondale Saturday
night in PdL. The win gave the Lady
Pirates the Region 1-2A champion-
ship and a meeting with top-ranked
Orlando First Academy at The Lake-
land Center.
A packed house was on hand to
cheer the teams on as they met for the
fourth time this season. The game was
a bitter hard defensive battle as the
smaller Lady Hornets tried to use their
speed to get inside of the PdL defense,
led by junior center Mary Howes, who


led all scorers with 12 points.
To little avail, at least for most of
the game. The Lady Hornets had just
four offensive rebounds the whole
game as PdL dominated inside. The
Lady Hornets also made just four
three-point goals as the Lady Pirates
came to the perimeter to defend.
"Obviously Mary is a big scoring
threat for us," PdL coach Tim Alford
said.
The PdL defense kept the visitors
in check for most of the game, domi-
nating the first half. The Lady Pirates
took an 11-3 lead after the first quarter
and led 20-10 at the half. There were
foul problems, however, but the bench
stepped in and kept PdL dominant


throughout the first half.
Alford did not take Cottondale
lightly. "We had them by 12 in Cot-
tondale and they came back on us,"
he noted.
The game changed drastically in
the third quarter, and the Lady Hor-
nets made another strong comeback.
Cottondale hit a free throw, Quantina
Speights hit a three, Shaunte Forward
hit a bucket, and a free throw later it
was just 20-17 PdL. Lacey Griffin
finally scored off a rebound for 50
seconds left for the home team's only
score of the quarter.
"They did a good job with their

Lady Devils' season ends in Jacksonville


The Holmes County

test.

and Tearia Butler had 16

Holmes County was 19-
9 and played at Ribault in
Jacksonville.
Ribault was ranked sec-
ond in the state.

Ribault 48
Holmes County 44
The Lady Devils hung
tough with the second best
in the state, but fell 48-44 in
UL


the Region 1-3A semifinal
against Ribault.
In the first quarter, ac-
cording to the Florida
Times-Union, the Lady
Trojans weren't playing
like the No. 2-ranked team
in Class 3A. They made
3-of-17 shots, committed
seven turnovers and had
seven fouls as the visitors
jumped to an 11-7 lead.
It wasn't until the third
quarter that the Ribault
defense began to rattle Hol-


mes County (19-10). The
Trojans' press forced three
consecutive turnovers that
resulted in three baskets by
Shanasa Sanders.
That increased Ribault's
lead to 35-24 and forced
the Lady Devils to play
from behind the rest of the
game.
Ribault (25-2) fell to
Florida High 53-41 in the
regional final, with the win-
ner advancing to Lakeland
to the final four.

Freedom All-Star Classic
All-star games are sometimes overlooked as merely
exhibitions. But when bragging rights are at stake, it means
a little more.
The third Freedom All-Star Classic, which pits senior
all-stars from the Northwest Florida Daily News' coverage
area against those from The News Herald, will take place
April 7, at the Billy Harrison Field House on the campus
of Gulf Coast Community College. The girls game will
be at 11 a.m., with the boys scheduled to tip off at 1 p.m.
Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children ages 5-17 and
children under five will be admitted free.
In three out of the four games over the past two years,
the West team, selected by the Daily News, has been vic-
torious. Last year, the West pulled off the sweep at Gulf
Coast. The lone victory for the East was in the boys game
in 2005.
The West's boys team will be coached by Laurel Hill's
Kent Zessin. Zessin led the Hoboes to their third straight
District 1-1A title this season and into the regional semi-
finals on Tuesday. Last year, Zessin's squad reached the
Class lA state semifinals.
Although the full roster won't be announced until a
later date, four players have been selected for the West
boys team. Fort Walton Beach guard Mike Turpin and
forward Carl Richardson will participate, along with
Laurel Hill guard Timaria McKay and Freeport forward
Devon Grant.
The first four members of the girls team will be an-
nounced next week.
Arnold's Tyler Schwab, Rutherford's Dre Ross, Mos-
ley's Derrio Green and Bay's Jonathan Murner have been
selected by The News Herald to play for the East boys
basketball team

PdL boys finish out solid season


The FHSAA boys bas-
ketball regional quarter
final between the Freeport
Bulldogs and the Ponce de
Leon Pirates ended with a
loss for Ponce de Leon, but
the Pirates can be proud of
what one fan called a "hard
fought war."
The score was never
more than a few points
apart in either direction.
The first period ended with
the Bulldogs ahead 14 - 12.
The second period brought
more of the same with the
score at the half being in
favor of Ponce de Leon
26 - 24. Both teams came
back from the half ready
for battle. The Bulldogs
initiated the full court press
and capitalized on the Pi-

third period which ended
with the Bulldogs leading,
43 to 42.
Pirates defense then
forced the Bulldogs to mis-
fire in the first 60 seconds
of the fourth period and
the Pirates went ahead by
eight points. This lead was
short lived as the Bulldogs

Howes scored six early

Allex McCormick drained
a three to give the Lady
Pirates a 31-22 lead. Kidada
Paul, however, hit a three to
make it 31-25.
At this point PdL be-
gan sitting on the ball to
draw fouls. They made 6-8
from the free throw down
the stretch, but Cottondale
hung tough.
Forward was fouled on a
three-point attempt and bur-
ied all three attempts with
37.2 seconds left to make
it 35-29. Maggie Wright hit
two free throws of her own,
however, with 32.5 seconds
left and iced the win.
And now its on to Lake-

won the state title in 2000,

other.

Help Pdl go to Lakeland
The trip to Lakeland will
be reminiscent of the Gene
Hackman film "Hoosiers"
as the Ponce de Leon Lady
Pirates will no doubt be la-
beled the underdog against
First Academy Orlando.
The First Academy Or-
lando team defeated their
regional tournament op-
ponents by over 20 points.
This sets up a true Da-
vid and Goliath scenario.
In fact, Ponce de Leon is
the only public school in
the final four brackets for
the state 2A championship
which is again dominated
by the private schools.
Anyone who wishes to
support the Lady Pirates to
offset the travel, meal and
hotel costs may make their
tax deductible donation to
the Ponce de Leon Booster
Club by contacting Cory
Godwin at 850-892-2794
on Monday, or you may
drop off your contribution
at Rooms and More Fur-

may also drop off contribu-
tions at the school. Let's
support the only public
school from our area in
their effort to claim a state
championship.

FWC Division of Law Enforcement
Field Operations, Weekly Report dated February 9-15,
2007. This report represents some significant events the
FWC handled over the past two weeks.
*Washington County: While on water patrol in Holmes
Creek, Officer Larry Morris found two individuals fish-
ing. Upon approach, he detected the odor of marijuana.
He gave out two citations, one for no fishing license and
one for misdemeanor possession of cannabis.
Officer Kathy Jackson observed, from the roadway, a
deer hanging and being dressed in the back yard of a house.
She found a 15-year-old male juvenile, unattended, clean-
ing an illegal antlerless deer. The boy would not show her
the head he claimed he threw away and it was a button
buck. A citation was issued.
Officer Warren Walsingham had a neighbor come to
his residence saying someone had invaded her home and
was still there. Officer Walsingham and two Washington
County deputies responded and apprehended a black male
inside the home, claiming it was his home. The deputies
arrested him for the felony.
*Holmes County: Last week Officer Morris received a
complaint that a man shot a buck deer on private property
from a roadway. The shooter left and soon returned with
his son, to find the landowner and a neighbor had taken
possession of the buck. The shooter and his son took the
deer back and later cleaned it. Officer Morris responded
to the incident and requested Officer Jim Brooks to as-
sist. The men confessed to their actions and the officers
charged the elder man with felony trespass by projectile
and misdemeanor rightofway road hunting.

Continued from page 1A

(BD II) was also on hand
at the meeting and gave an
update on the project:
*BD II is preparing to
close on property within the
next two weeks. The corpo-
ration is also restructuring.
*There has been interfer-
ence in efforts to close on a
particular piece of property
that is vital to the project.
This must be done as soon
as possible.
*Based on presales of
about $156 million BD II
has about $54 million on
deposit and the promise of
a $44 million construction
loan.
*Once everything is
closed BD II plans to move
immediately.
*If things do not work out
the project would be moved
to another location.
*About 3,600 job applica-
tions have been turned in.
*Financial reports are
available upon request.
*Phase I involves about
1,200 acres, with 400 devot-
ed to commercial/residen-
tial use to provide funding.

been reported for several
months.
Farris also said that con-
trary to some reports she has
not been served with any
sort of "gag order" involv-

*A former BD II partner
had some of the property
for sale. Farris said this was
done without her knowl-
edge, and when it was dis-
covered his resignation was
requested and received.

The Ivey Brothers Band will return to Chipola Col-
lege for the second straight year to play "The 60
Rockin' Years Party," a benefit dance for the Chipola
Honors Program on Friday, Feb. 23. Tickets are $10
and may be purchased from any Honors student or
by phoning Bonnie Smith at 526-2761.

Ivey Brothers return to Chipola
The Ivey Brothers band will return to Chipola Col-
lege for the second straight year to play "The 60 Rockin'
Years Party," a benefit dance for the Chipola Honors
Program on Friday, Feb. 23.
The dance will be held in the college Arts Center,
known to locals as the old field house, the same venue
where the Iveys played in 1968. Doors open at 7:30
p.m. and guests can dance the night away or just remi-
nisce with some great music.
Three brothers; Robert Ivey, Richard Ivey and Wil-
son Ivey have made up the core of the group since the
mid-60's. Wilson's son, Chase Ivey, joined the group in
2004. Local guitarist Dennis Guy will join the band for
the Chipola gig.
The Ivey Brothers first performed at a high school
dance in 1965, and quickly progressed to dances at
Chipola, FSU, UWF and UF. Their ability to entertain
with their versatile repertoire became well known in the
Dothan club scene in the 70's and 80's.
A European tour in 1977 and release of a local hit "It's
Not Worth The Pain" in 1978 made the group's fame
complete. They have played with and backed "The
Pointer Sisters," "The Coasters," "Jeannie Pruitt," "Bil-
ly Crash Craddock," and "The Platters."
. Drummer Robert Ivey is a Chipola history professor
who serves as adviser to the Freshman Honors program.
Math professor
Bonnie Smith, who directs the program with Ivey,
says, "The goal of Honors is to equip our local leaders
of tomorrow with awareness and understanding which
will improve the lives of our citizens." Dance tickets are
$10 and may be purchased from any Honors student or
by phoning Bonnie Smith or Ivey at 526-2761. Tax-de-
ductible gifts for the Honors Endowment also may be
mailed to the Chipola College Foundation at 3094 In-
dian Circle, Marianna, FL 32446.

foot, "and we're eager to

and other traditional folk
songs.

BOY SCOUTS NEWS


This past weekend the Boy Scouts from Chipley Troop
39 were out roughing it again. This time they went to
the state park at St. Mark's to do a couple of bike rides
:towards their cycling merit badge (which is an Eagle re-
:quired badge).


The first ride was 16 miles along the old rail line to St.
Mark's that was converted to a bike trail. The second one
was 11 miles from their campsite (in 24 degree weather)
to the Lighthouse on the coast.
Along the way the boys had the opportunity to see a


variety of wildlife such as Blue Herrons, the Anhinga
also known as the Snake Bird,, several species of water
birds, a large gator taking a sun bath, and an American
Bald Eagle roosting in a tree. More scouting news in
Sports.

Lay up your treasures in Heaven


As many of you have
noticed, Judy and I have
moved, after serving our
Lord and the gracious
people of Blue Lake Bap-
tist Church in Chipley for
nine years. The Lord has
relocated us to serve Him
with the awesome people
of the Gully Springs Bap-
tist Church in Bonifay.
To say the least, this
move has made our life
very interesting for the past
several weeks. In the past
moving has not been that
big of an issue to us. I say
that because; while living
at home with my parents,
which would be the first 20
years of my life, we moved
some eighteen times that I
can remember. Judy had
also moved many times as
a child; she often talks of
attending three different
school systems in the sixth
grade.
But we have done some-
what better in the last 31
years that we have been
married, in that we have
only moved eight times
(ok, this will be the ninth).
I can truthfully say that we
have come to a point that
we have enjoyed having
our roots begin to "dig in"
a community.
After nine years in the
same community we have
come very fond of the peo-
ple here and the commu-
nity, and after nine years
in the same house we have
just discovered that we
have accumulated a lot of
stuff. I mean a lot of stuff
that memories are made of
and then a lot of just junk.
To this point in my life
I have never understood
why people rent storage
buildings to store stuff. I,
still don't understand what


From the

Heart

Tim Hall

the principle behind rent-
ing a storage facility to put
stuff in that you may never
use or even check-on. I re-
member the words of Lar-
ry Burkett the financial ge-
nius of Crown Ministries
saying, "If you don't use
something in a year, you
need to get rid of it," and I
thought we lived according
to that principle or pretty
close to it, till we began
to pack for this move. We
have found things stuck
in closets and drawers
that we forgot we had. We
have filled a dumpster with
junk and have boxes upon
boxes to take to "Love In
Action" and the "Salvation
Army" of useable stuff that
we don't need.
Through the years I have
known people referred to
as "Pack Rats", because
they seem to put every-
thing they get their hands
.on, in some type of stor-
age, "just incase they may
need it down the road", or
because, "you never know
what that 'thing' or 'items'

might be worth someday."
So they pay to store .things
up until it gains value or
they need it, which never
seems to happen.
Jesus must have known
that we would have these
types of worries and con-
cerns when He said, "Take
therefore no thought for
the morrow: for the mor-
row shall take thought for
the things of itself. Suf-
ficient unto the day is the
evil thereof' (Matthew
6:34 KJV).
He also knew what
would happen to things
that are stored too long,
because He also said, "Lay
not up for yourselves trea-
sures upon earth, where
moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal: But lay
up for yourselves treasures
in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:
For where your treasure
is, there will your heart be
also" (Matthew 6:19-24).


With this move I have
come to the conclusion
that we would all be much
wiser and frugal if we to-
tally moved out of our
house completely every
three to five years and then
move back in. So that we
could take inventory of the
things we haven't used in
years and then give them
to someone who could use
them, even if we planned
on living there our entire
life.

"Let us consider one an-
other to provoke unto love
and to good works: Not
forsaking the assembling
of ourselves together, as
the manner of some is; but
exhorting one another: and
so much the more, as you
see the' day approaching."
Heb. 10: 24'& 25 ('The
day'), being the day of the
Lord's return.
How satan must be sit-
ting back, holding his
sides, laughing, over the
way the church is heading,
away from Jesus! What
has happened to our five-
point ministries: apostles,
prophets, pastors, teachers,
and evangelists? Some pas-
tors seem more concerned
about 'family time'; than
God's time!
As followers of Christ,
the church needs to wake
up and restore the church
as it once was; as Jesus set
it up. To start with, I don't
think He intended for us,
His followers to change
things, do you?
I can remember back to
the time that the primary
concern of the church was
winning souls, As God's
Word tells us: "He that
winneth souls is wise."
This took pastors who were
dedicated to that concern
and that included prayer,

fasting, preaching, study
of the Word and yes visi-
tation, according to Jesus'
own words, "Go ye, and
teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Fa-
ther, the Son, and the Holy
Ghost." I can remember
when that was the way it
was done.
I remember how our
pastor and his wife would
gather some of us young
people together, and take
us to different parts of
town and teach us how to
go house to house, to tell
the people about Jesus
and invite them to come to
T


church with us. That was
valuable teaching from our
pastor and his wife. They
taught us the importance
of being busy for the Lord.
Another thing they taught
us, by their example, was
faithfulness to God, above
everything else.
Our pastors were faith-
ful also to teach God's
Word, without watering it
down, to please the peo-
ple. It seems today that
many people do not want
to obey the Word of God.
It is as if they are afraid
it might cramp their style.
Well, so be it, if they really
want to spend eternity in
hell. There are just some
things God will not put up
with. How can people re-
ject God's Word and our
Savior, Jesus Christ, after
He took such inhumane
punishment, to die in our
place, because He loved
us so!! Oh that we would
love Him that way! It is His
will for us to spend eternity
with Him in Heaven. I'm
going, what about you?
Think about it friend,
you are worth much more
to Him; than that you
should go to that evil place,
where there is no escape,
ever. The church used to
stand up strongly about
these issues. I realize that


some still do, but so many
have departed from some
of these teaching. Beware
people, God does not
change, neither does His
Word. So don't let the evil
one deceive you.
God also sent out Evan-
gelists to hold revivals to
help revive the church, and
sometimes we need reviv-
ing in the things of God.
When I was growing up
and during my early adult
years, we often had reviv-
als and most of them were
at least two or three weeks.
Remember back, folks?
One such revival we had
at our church lasted nine
weeks! Oh how the Spirit
of God moved, people
were saved and healed, and
blessed beyond words. I
am not trying to pin a bou-
quet on my husband and
myself, but we only missed
one night during that time,
and it was true of most of
our church folks too.
I hear so many excuses
why people can't get to
church even three services
a week. But people, when
you stand before God on
Judgment day, will your
excuses hold water? Think
about it seriously! Most
revivals today last about
two or three days at the

Baptist Collegiate Ministry Scavenger Hunt winners,
Shauna McCoy, Jennifer Johnson, and Cassidy Spen-
cer.

Scavenger hunt
The first ever Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM)
Scavenger hunt at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF)
in Graceville was held on Saturday, Feb. 10. Congratula-
tions to the winning team members, Shauna McCoy, Jen-
nifer Johnson, and Cassidy Spencer.
With fun and fellowship in mind, Mindy Nettles, BCM
Director, planned the activities designed specifically for
students to get to know each other and become better ac-
quainted with the Dothan and Graceville area.
At approximately 6 p.m., four cars carrying BCF stu-
dents left the college campus for locations to be deter-
mined. Teams earned points by following safety precau-,
tions, taking pictures of required activities, and returning
to the college campus within the three-hour time limit.
Some of the challenges involved students at jewelry
counters trying on wedding bands, walking around Lake
Albert, taking pictures with faculty members, busing
tables at restaurants, and locating the decorated peanut
statues in Dothan.
As the time quickly passed, every team returned safe
and sound back to the campus for the counting of points.
Mindy Nettles, assisted by Matt LeHew, WFBU radio
host of Campus Live from 4 to 5, added the points and
announced the winners. The winning team received acco-
lades and medallions acknowledging their efforts. Every-
one enjoyed the evening and getting to know each other
and the community better.

WES WEBB
Real Power Columnist
A famous department store
advertises it's plan for giving
away $1,000. A certificate ap-
pears in the newspaper stat-
ing on the following Monday
they would sound a trumpet
at a particular moment of the
management's choosing ,
and all whowere in the store
who also possessed a copy of
the certificate would be given
$1,000. The certificate would
serve the store's assurance
this plan would be fulfilled.
What would you do if this
were real?
Having "heard" their of-
fer would you go? Having
"believed" would you take
the certificate with you and
obey all the instructions?
This would be the same as
doing what Paul instructed us
to do in Ephesians 1:13 what
he wrote, "In whom ye also
trusted, after that ye heard
the word of truth, the gospel
of your salvation: in whom
also after that ye believed, ye
were sealed with that Holy
Spirit of promise."
Well the next question is;
would the $1,000 be earned
by meritorious "works"? Or
be given by "grace"? The
same way that this $1,000
would be given to you, God
also gives us eternal life.
We have not earned it, but
God has given it to us as we
are told in Ephesians 2:8-10
which says, "For by grace are
ye saved through faith; and
that not of yourselves: it is

most. Is that indicating that
the world and the church
really does not need a re-
vival? We need to recon-
sider that foolish notion.
Right?
Yes, I am sure there are
some that are just out for
money or fame. That is
why the Word teaches us
to know them that labor
among us. I truly believe
I I


the gift of God: Not of works,
lest any man should boast.
For we are his workman-
ship, created in Christ Jesus
unto good works, which God
hath before ordained that we
should ialk in them."
I also would like to ask the
question; was the plan cho-
sen, or were specific individu-
als "elected," "predestined,"
or "chosen" by the manage-
ment? In other words, did
the individuals who collected
the money receive it because
they were specifically chosen
.before the conditions were
advertised, or were they "the
elect" who received the re-
ward because they complied
with the conditions (plan)
which had been "chosen"?
According to Gods plan we
all have been given the op-
portunity, but only those who
follow God's plan will be
saved.
In Ephesians 1:3-14 Paul
writes, "Blessed be the God
and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who hath blessed us
with all spiritual blessings
in heavenly places in Christ:
According as he hath chosen
us in him before the foun-
dation of the world, that we
should be holy and without
blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us unto
the adoption of children by
Jesus Christ to himself, ac-
cording to the good pleasure
of his will, To the praise of
the glory of his grace, where-
in he hath made us accepted
in the beloved. In whom we


the Holy Ghost will lead
us in this department if we
will take it to the Lord in
prayer. Too many times
though we use it for an
excuse to stay away from
church. If we turn it over to
God, He is able to work it
out, even if He has to use
the children of the church
to sense it when something
is wrong.
Doesn't the Word say
on one occasion, that "a lit-
tle child shall lead them." ?
In the church my husband


have redemption through
his blood, the forgiveness of
sins, according to the riches
of his grace; Wherein he hath
abounded toward, us in all
wisdom and prudence; Hav-
ing made known unto us the
mystery of his will, according
to his good pleasure which
he hath purposed in himself:
That in the dispensation of
the fulness of times he might
gather together in one all
things in Christ, both which
are in heaven, and which are
on earth; even in him:
In whom also we have
obtained an inheritance, be-
ing predestinated according
to the purpose of him who
worketh all things after the
counsel of his own will: That
we should be to the praise of
his glory, who first trusted in
Christ.
In whom ye also trusted,
after that ye heard the word
of truth, the gospel of your
salvation: in whom also af-
ter that ye believed, ye were
sealed with that holy Spirit of
promise, Which is the earnest
of our inheritance until the
redemption of the purchased
possession, unto the praise of
his glory."
Would you have any right
to claim the $1,000 if you did
not follow the instructions?
Even if you believed (men-
tally agreed with) the adver-
tisement would you have a
right to the gift.
In Mark 16:16 Jesus said,
"He that believeth and is
baptized shall be saved; but


pastored for many years,
we had something that was
done by a visiting preacher
who visited our service one
Sunday morning. As he
stood that morning, pray-
ing for someone, he said
something that troubled
many of us, and as soon as
church was over, the chil-
dren rushed to my husband
and asked, if what he did,
was right or wrong. He
told them that he did not
agree at all with what the
man,had done: but the chil-


he that believeth not shall
be damned." Belief is not
enough. God demands us to
have works also.
Finally, what if you went
to the store with the certifi-
cate in hand but left before
the trumpet sounded? Could
you still claim the $1,000? In
Hebrews 3:12-14 the writer
says, "Take heed, brethren,
lest there be in any of you an
evil heart of unbelief, in de-
parting from the living God.
But exhort one another dai-
ly, while it is called To day;
lest any of you be hardened
through the deceitfulness of
sin." We always need to re-
member that we must remain
faithful until death to receive
the prize
The obvious answers to
these questions should help
us in understanding God's
scheme of redemption . He
is sovereign. By grace He
extends salvation to all men.
Just as the store's conditions
of reward were predetermined
and could not be altered by
the public; likewise God has
chosen the plan of salvation
through Christ. However,
God allows man to be a free
moral agent, and whether we
are saved or lost will be de-
termined by our response of
faith.

My Brother's Keeper

In the book of Genesis, after Cain killed his brother
Abel, the Lord asked Cain the question, "Where is your
brother Abel?" Cain's reply was, "I don't know. Am I
supposed to take care of my brother?" Not only did
Cain murder his brother, he then lied to God about this
terrible act. For this, God placed
Cain under a curse, driving him from
': the land, and he could no longer
farm the soil. It appears that Cain
S showed no remorse or repentance
t for his actions and he felt that
. he was not his brother's keeper.
However, the Bible indicates to us
that we should love and treat others
as we would want to be treated.
When Jesus was asked, which is
the greatest commandment in the Law, He answered,
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all
your soul, and with all your mind. Love your neighbor
as yourself."
The command that Christ has given us is this:
Whoever loves God must love his brother also.
