WCSO reports on
wheelchair scam
Washington County Sheriff's
Office is asking residents to
please beware of organizations
that offer large sums of money,
scooters or motorized wheelchairs
in exchange for detailed personal
information that could put them
at risk for
and identity
theft, as well
as allow these
companies to
take out life
insurance pol-
icies in their name.
Representatives of certain
organizations reportedly are of-
fering $1,000 checks and durable
items in exchange for seniors fill-
ing pout "longevity surveys" that
ask for highly personal, confiden-
tial information including Social
Security numbers, Medicare
number, and extensive health and
financial information.
Some seniors have been prom-
ised the $1,000 upon completion
of the survey and $250 per year
for the rest of their lives for their
continued participation in the pro-
gram. The surveys are reportedly
conducted over the phone, and the
money requires the senior to sign
and mail in certain documents.
The lieutenant governor's Of-
fice on Aging has not endorsed
any of these organizations' efforts
and takes no position regarding
legitimacy, but it has warned the
state agencies on aging on the
misleading business.
If you have any questions or
feel you may have been a victim
of one of these scams, please
contact the Washington County
Sheriff's Office at 638-6111.

Coach, educator Rountree passes away

Philip Rountree

Managing Editor
Longtime coach and distin-
guished public 'educator Philip
Rountree passed away Friday
night. Rountree was on the first-
ever Florida State football team
and was honored by having
the Chipley football field re-
named Philip Rountree Stadium
in 2006.
Rountree was born June 28,
1923. He played at Chipley
High School under Coach K.P.
Gilmore and graduated in 1941.
He went to play at the University
of Florida but left to serve his
country in the Anny in WW II
from 1943-46.
Rountree then went to UF-
Tallahassee, soon to be renamed

Florida State University, in 1947.
He was co-captain of the school's
first-ever football team and com-
pleted the first-ever forward pass
by FSU. He was named head
coach at Chipley in 1949 and
served as head coach from 1949-
54. During that time the team had
a 25-game winning streak.
Rountree was the first princi-
pal at Kate M. Smith Elementary
from 1954-57. He also ran the
School Enhancement program,
including Little League and
swimming for 18 years. He then
went to Lake City to develop a
physical fitness program.
Rountree also served public
education at the state Depart-
ment of Education from 1969-
92. He served three terms on
the Washington County School

Board, and as a deacon at First
Baptist Church, served 15 years
with the Florida Army National
Guard, retiring as a captain, and
served as president of the Tiger
100 Club.
Rountree's wife, Connie, pre-
ceeded him in death. He is sur-
vived by a son, Redus, two grand-
daughters and other family.
Funeral service for Coach
Rountree will be April 3, at 2
p.m. at the First Baptist Church
in Chipley.
The family will receive friends
from 6-8 p.m., April 2, at Brown's

yard Road.

Relay for Life organizers gave 61 reasons to support the annual event.

61 reasons to support Relay for Life

Managing Editor
Anyone passing by the Wash-
ington County Courthouse Sun-
day afternoon would have been
surprised to see 61 pairs of shoes
on the courthouse steps. The
shoes symbilized 61 Washing-
ton Countians who were taken
by cancer in 2006 (the last con-
firmed figures), and served to
highlight the upcoming Relay for
Life at old Chipley High School
track April 18-19.
"2006 is the last year we have
for official figures," said Steve
Harr of the Washington County
ACS. Harr, himself a cancer
survivor, came up with the idea
to publicize Relay.
"To me that's a large number

for a county as small as Wash-.
ington," Harr said. "It's to bring
awareness that no one is filling
those shoes due to cancer. It's to
get people out to historic Chipley
High School to raise funds and
increase awareness so that one
day we can stop the spread of
cancer and.someday find a cure
for it."
Harry and Connie Wheeler
were also on hand at the event.
Harry is a skin cancer survivor
and Connie lost both her parents
to cancer. Connie Wheeler em-
phasized that money raised at this
year's Relay would be-there for
local needs.
"The money stays locally,"
Connie said, "and it helps people
not only get the care they need,
but also research." Wheeler noted

that funds raised at Relay are
used locally for wigs for those
undergoing treatment, transpor-
tation to treatment, and other
purposes. Funds also go toward
ROCK scholarships for children
who are cancer survivors.

vivor ceremony, contact Connie
Wheeler at 638-2288 or 850-

Jury finds for defendant in Beagell case

Managing Editor
A six-woman Holmes County
jury unanimously agreed that
Edward Beagell did not "unlaw-
fully and intentionally kill his
wife, Shirley, on May 19, 2002.
The decision was reached Mon-
day after a six-day civil trial in
Holmes County Circuit Court.
The jury was out for a little over
two hours.
The jury was polled at the
request of plaintiff's attorney
Robert Moletteire of Melbourne.
Attorney Rhonda Clyatt of Pan-
ama City represented Edward
The suit was filed by the estate

of Shirley Beagell, and asked
for damages for each of her
daughters, that included Sharon
Edlestein representing the estate,
Karen Asher, and Tina Dokey.
The plaintiffs sought to recover
damage for the loss of their moth-
er's companionship, for mental
pain and suffering, for medical
and funeral expenses, and loss of
support and services.
Shirley Beagell was killed in
a fire at the Beagell residence
at 2957 State 90 just west of
Bonifay. She had lost a leg due to
illness and was in rehabilitation
and came home the day before
her death.
The fire was investigated by
the state fire marshal's office and

no criminal charges were ever
filed in the case.
Edward Beagell said he was
at a grocery store when the fire
started and that his wife was
cooking dinner at the time of the
fire. The plaintiffs claimed that
Edward Beagell intentionally set
the fire that killed Shirley, and
claimed that he even started an-
other fire while she was in rehab a
week earlier. The defense claimed
that was also an accident.
Shirley Beagell used a walker
to get around, and plaintiffs
claimed that she would never be
able to stand at the stove because
of her missing leg.

Karen Beagell, Ed
Beagell's estranged wife,
testified Wednesday that
during a domestic dispute
on March 30, 2004 she
gave a statement to law
enforcement that Ed told
her, "I should have killed
you months ago like I killed
Shirley." Karen Beagell
admitted on cross-exami-
nation that she had a good
deal to drink that night, and
married Edward in October
State Fire Marshal
Tommy Barron testified
that based on evidence the
fire started on the left rear
burner of the stove, and
there was nothing unusual
about a pan that was found
at the scene. The burner on
the stove was turned on,
Barron said.
Barron said the cause of
the fire was undetermined
and appeared to be an ac-
cidental stovetop fire.

Former District 14 As-
sistant Medical Examiner
Dr. Marie Hansen said
the results of the autop-
sy showed that Shirley
Beagell died as a result of
smoke inhalation. Hansen
said there was no evidence
of elevated drug levels
(Shirley took several pre-
scription drugs for various
illnesses), evidence of blunt
force trauma, or evidence
of defensive wounds.
Fire investigator Ed-
ward Deese testified for
the plaintiff that the fuel
load of a grease fire was
not consistent with the fire
at the Beagell residence.
Deese also said traces of
an accelerant were found at
the scene. The defense ar-
gued that could have come
from the ceiling because of
the fire.
Circuit Judge Allen
Register said the plaintiffs
could file an appeal of the
decision. Register said such
appeals are normally filed
based on a ruling during
the trial.

Nothing gold can stay

Few things in life are as
profound as country music.
Where else can you learn
how to mend a broken
heart? Find your true love?
Or scrape your dog off the
Frankly, that's why I
love country music.
George Strait has-a song
titled "The Best Day." The
song tells the story of a boy
growing older, and what he
thinks is the best day of his
life. Funny thing is, that as
the boy grows up, the best
day of his life changes.,
In the beginning, the
best day is a fishing trip
with Dad. Later on, the
best day is getting a car.
The song ends with the
best day being the boy's
wedding day.
See what I mean by pro-
found? This stuff is deep.
It speaks to the core of the
human condition. Well,
maybe it doesn't speak
directly to the core of the
human condition, but it
speaks in the direction of
the human condition.
The song reminds me of
the special days in my life.
I remember getting my first
real pair of cowboy boots.
There was the time my
family drove to Ohio and

One Word
Andrew Hollinger

back, camping all the way.
I remember signing up for
my first basketball camp.
There was the road trip to
Disneyland. We drove on
Old Route 66 the whole
way. We stopped at the
Grand Canyon. There is my
wedding day, and that first
Those memories are
great. And I enjoy thinking
about them. Sometimes,
though, it's a little sad. I
can always get boots or
go on a road trip, but the
occasion will be different.
It'll be a different memory
in the making. The sad part

is that after the event, all
that's left is memories.
All this reminds me of
a poem by Robert Frost,
"Nothing Gold Can Stay."
Nature's first green is
Her hardest hue to
Her early leaf's a flow-
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to
Nofling gold can stay.
The poem works on both
the natural and human lev-
els. It's supposed to mean
that what we value, won't
always last. The flower
eventually goes away, and
all that's left is the leaf.
Almost as if the leaf is the
memory of the flower. Our
memories are what's left of
our golden moments.
That's really a downer. I
know it brought me down.
Nothing gold can stay.
Then something occurred
to me. The poem says that
nothing gold can stay. It
doesn't say that nothing
gold will stay, or nothing
gold may stay. Nothing
gold CAN stay.

Even if what is gold
wanted to stay, it couldn't.
It just isn't possible. If
flowers never subsided
to the leaves, we could
never have more flowers.
Our gold moments have to
fade away, so we can have
more gold moments. Like
George Strait's song.
When the boy was
young his golden moment
was the fishing trip. When
he was older, it was his
wedding day. Neither ex-
perience was more or less
precious than the other.
They were both gold at the
time they were supposed
to be gold.
That's it. Our memories
don't have to come with
any sadness. We don't have
to hold tightly to what's
gold at the moment. Be-
cause as soon as we let gold
be gold and fade way, we'll
have a new golden moment
to cherish.
Nothing gold can stay.
Today might be the best

Zeroing out funding for the arts
To The Editor,
Last week, when Speaker of the House, Marco Rubio,
announced that whole departments might have to be
eliminated to balance the budget, The Division of Cultural
Affairs became an easy target for the House aides who
are preparing the budget.
By simply zeroing out funding for the Division this
vital administrative unit will cease to exist, and our ad-
vocacy for Arts and Culture will be carried back to the
dark ages in the name of short term and short sighted
' During the economic downturn of the 2006-2007
fiscal year when other Departments were required to
reduce their overall budget by four percent, the Division
of Cultural Affairs took a 61 percent cut. But the Arts
strengthen our economy.
We know that for every dollar the State of Florida in-
vests in the Arts we get a $7 return...we know that students
who have four years of Art or Music education perform
60 percent better in verbal skills and 38 percent better
in math skills on their SAT scores, and become better
citizens for the state of Florida. We know that there are
over 150,000 full-time employees devoted to the Arts in
the state of Florida.
Why should we forget all that, and pull the plug on the
support group that makes it all possible?
Agreed, times are tough, but let us not sell out our cul-
tural heritage, and take away the leadership so necessary
to keep Florida attractive as the place to live, the place
to visit, the place to invest in.
High Tech industries relocating to Florida are choosing
communities where the Arts flourish because they know
the creative thinking employees they recruit demand
cultural facilities for themselves and their families.
Nowhere else can you find finer museums, symphonies,
education in the arts and dedication to the finer things
in life.
We need to make an outcry. The budget is being drawn
up as we speak.
Jim Shaw
Chairman, Florida Arts Council

Blue Pond Cemetery top story in 'Prattle'


Bring out the cymbals
and give a great big "clang-
ing sound," or reach for
the musical drums for the
traditional "drum roll" an-
nouncing the "grand finale"
is at hand! That's right, the
prattler is finally ready to
announce story No. I in
his top 10 countdown from
last year.
The articles written on
Blue Pond Cemetery, the
adjoining church of many
years gone by, High Hill
Primitive Baptist Church,
and the burial of Martha
Jean Cooper Chasse' in
the old cemetery, win top
billing as the story with the
most response in 2007.
Martha Jean's mother
was Martha Taylor Coo-
per, who was reared near
"the forks of the creek," or
the "shell landing" com-
For the reader who may
have missed the above
writings, I will explain that
the last issue in April and
the four editions in May
of the Washington County'
News of last year, were all
stories on the above topic
for the "prattle" column.
The funeral service for
Martha Jean was the first in
the historic burying ground
for almost 50 years. The ac-
count of the burial was the
subject of a feature article
which Perry Wells, the cor-
respondent, wrote for the
paper. On Sept. 22, 2007,
the Weekend Edition of the
Washington County News
printed the article on the
impressive Sept. 8 funeral.
The service included refer-
ences to some of Martha
Jean's Muskogee-Creek
Native American heritage.
Dale Taylor wrote a
comprehensive history of
his Taylor ancestors for
the Heritage of Washington
What he learned from
Martha Jean, as %well as
other relatives and from his
own study, Dale can readily
recite a long list of deep
southern folkways that
were, no doubt, influenced
by the Native Americans.
He cites many stews, soups
and bread recipes, as well
as "hocake" cornbread, fry
bread, boiled "dumplings,"
and possibly today's "grits"
as coming from the Musk-
ogee-Creek heritage.
Dale Taylor is the offi-
cial caretaker of Blue Pond
Cemetery as well as the
landmark burying ground
at Live Oak Baptist Church
Cemetery located in the
Miller's Ferry area.
My lifetime attraction
and interest in Blue Pond
Cemetery and High Hill
Primitive Baptist Church
stems from my being told
of the historic location
since childhood.

liam Perry Wells, my dad's
oldest brother, reportedly

Bethel Primitive Baptist Church's meeting house, which stood on Highway 173,
six miles south of Bonifay, until 1957. It then became the residence of Leroy and
Estelle Crawford, who moved the building near Poplar Head Independent Freewill
Baptist Church. The structure accidentally burned in the early 1970s.

in that area when he was a
young man. The date was
possibly in 1916.
On Nov. 21, 1926, my
grandfather, James Thomas
Wells, wrote the final min-
utes of the last meeting of
High Hill Primitive Baptist
Church when the body
agreed to cease efforts to
conduct worship services.
Many names of those indi-
viduals involved as leaders
and members of that church
were identified in my writ-
ings of last year.
In studying those old re-
cords and seeing names of
visiting Elders from other
churches, one person which
stood out was Elder Moses
W. Helms. A brief life story
of this gentleman was re-
corded in the Heritage of
Washington County book
with the article submitted
by Jean Braxton Casper, a
great granddaughter.
Danny Braxton, a Wash-
ington County native now
living in Valparaiso, has
furnished this writer exten-
sive additional information
on Elder Helms. Danny
is related to him through
the noted McGeachy fam-
ily, early Chipley settlers.
Danny wrote several ac-
counts of his ancestors
for the Heritage book and
continues a keen interest in
history and genealogy.
Elder Moses W. Helms
came to this area expressly
to answer a church "call" to
pastor Washington Primi-
tive Baptist Church. The
church leader, a native of
North Carolina, arrived
here in early -1882 after
living many years in Cof-
fee, Henry and Barbour
counties in Alabama where
he served Primitive Baptist
Church congregations as
pastor. His death came
on Sept. '4, 1883, and he
is buried at Hard Labor
Cemetery, along with other
family members.
A study of Primitive
Baptist Church Association
records produced the name
of A.R. (Angus) Wells as a
member of Double Pond
Church east of Wausau.
He was also recognized as



Perry Wells

owner of numerous cattle
and other livestock in the
county. I recall my grandfa-
ther, James Thomas Wells,
relating how the A.R. Wells
family would "drive" cows
to a Pensacola market and
would "pen" the herd over-
night near our old home
place before proceeding on
the long trek westward.
It never occurred to me
that my grandfather would
have known A.R. Wells as
a fellow church member in
the Primitive Baptist Order.
Now that Griff Godfrey,
great-grandson of A.R.
Wells, has given me Jan.
16, 1859,and May 7, 1925,
as the date of birth and date
of death for his ancestor,
it is obvious that the two
Wellses could have known
each other in their church
affiliations during those
Responses to the above-
mentioned articles of last
year convince me that the
building housing High Hill
Primitive Baptist Church
did burn. My guess is that
it was a "control burn" as
the structure had reportedly
"gone down." (The words
used in the last minutes).

in confirms the report of

Many other Primitive
Baptist Churches, including
Bethel Primitive Baptist,
where I was reared, were
mentioned in last year's
writing. I have not fully

of another area congrega-
tion of the Old Baptist
Church Order. Harmony
Primitive Baptist Church
was organized Nqv. 14,
1912, near the present day
Blitch's Restaurant, south
of Bonifay. This body
agreed on Aug. 10, 1926, to
disband their formal meet-
ings with each individual
member placing his or her
membership in other Prinmi-
tive Baptist Churches.
The writings of last year
resulted in two historic,
old family bibles from the
Noles and Whittington
ancestors being placed in
the care of Chipley Chapel
Primitive Baptist Church.
They came from Corine
Whittington Dykes, whose
lineage on both sides of the
family were members of
the Primitive Baptist Faith
and Order.

Staff Writer
Karen Bebbington of
Lithia had a popular booth
at the annual Legends and
Lore weekend held at Fall-
ing Waters State Park. She
showed people how to
make corn husk dolls.
She said there's a good
reason why the dolls do not
have faces. According to
legend, the spirits asked the
creator to make something
to watch over children
while the parents hunted or
worked out of doors.
A corn husk doll was
made and given the power
to walk and talk. She also
had one of the most beauti-
ful faces ever made.
One day, corn husk doll
happened to see her reflec-
tion in a pool of water.
When she saw how pretty
she was, she became vain
and spent more time look-
ing at her reflection than
she did watching..the.cail-
As usual, the children
got into trouble with no one
to care. When the parents
complained that corn husk
doll was not watching the
kids, an owl was sent to
punish her. He took away
her face and her ability to
walk and talk. From that
time on, corn husk dolls
were made without faces
as a reminder to others not
to be vain.

Torch Run

Law enforcement

goes the distance

for Special Olympics

Jday Felsberg
Managing Editor
The vision of a few people
25 years ago was once again
honored Friday, March 28 as
the annual Law Enforcement
Torch Run headed through
Holmes and Washington coun-
ties Friday morning.
Passersby and spectators
along the route saw dozens on
men and women in the black
uniforms of corrections and
probation, the gray shirts of
Washington County Sheriff's
Office, and several other agen-
cies and volunteers head down
the highways and byways of
both counties. They started in
Holmes County and ended up
at Chipley Piggly Wiggly, fol-
lowing a glowing brass torch to
raise money and awareness for
Special Olympics.
"We raised over $80,000 last
year and our goal this year is to
raise 10 percent over that,"
said Holmes Corrections Insti-
tute Warden Barry Reddish.

'As you can see from the num-
ber of runners out it's all about
exposure and it's all about rais-
ing money for Special
The runners call the torch
"the flame of hope," every year
as it travels in relays through
Florida on its way to the open-
ing ceremonies of the state SO
games in Kissamee.
The run was first known as
the Special Olympics Mileage
Event done by a handful of
officers. The idea spread rap-
idly and is now the largest
annual public relations and
fundraising event between
Special Olympics and law
enforcement. Over 300 organi-
zations and agencies partici-
Funds are generated
through sale of T-shirts, hats,
"bands of support" and other
fundraising activities. For more
information, go to www.spe-
run.html or call (352)

Runners participating in the
annual Law Enforcement Torch
Run run through the streets of
Chipley raising money and aware-
ness for the Special Olympics.
Participants gather for a goup

aster celebration


Don't let them drive

.you away from the light

F irst
Bonifay provided a
variety of activities
during the Easter
holidays. The
church held its
annual Passion
Play celebrating
the resurrection of
Jesus Christ for
four nights to
large crowds.-The
church also,
ministered to the
community near
its Sandpath
property with an
Easter egg hunt
that provided for
for children and
the Good News of
Jesus Christ.

It's joy unspeakable

Hebrews 12:2 says this: "Look-
ing unto Jesus, the Author and
Finisher of our faith; Who for the
joy that was set before him
endured the cross, despising the
shame, and is set down on the
right hand of the throne of God."
This is the same scripture used in
last week's article; however, it is
also very fitting at this time too;
with Easter Sunday. on Match 23.,
For those of us who are Chris-
tians, this is one of our two most
holy holidays that we celebrate. 0
course we could not have had
Easter, if we had not had Christ-
mas first; so you can see why these
are our most beloved and honored
days of the year.
Jesus must first have been born
in Bethlehem of Judea on that
very first Christmas in order for
him to be living on this earth 33
years later when he would be
offered as our supreme sacrifice
for all of our sins. Then remember,
all of this happened 'while we were
yet sinners, and so undeserving of
such a sacrifice. Does that tell you
something about how much Jesus
loved us.
I remember some of the things
that happened just previously to his
crucifixion, according to our scrip-
tural teachings. On one occasion, as
He prayed in the garden, his sweat '
became as drops of blood, because

Mes S

Helen Hodge

He was in such agony and pain. He
then cried out, "Father, if it could
be your will, let this cup pass from
me, but nevertheless, not my will
but thine be done."
What agony of soul he was going
through, because he knew what
was facing him shortly. And even
on one occasion after this, while
on the cross, he cried out, "My
God, my God, why have you for-
saken me'?" What agony he experi-
enced while on that cross. Then
later, before his death, he prayed
fo" the ones that put him through

this terrible pain; He cried,
"Father, forgive them, for they
know not what they do!" People,
that is one of the major things he
was hung on that old rugged cross
for, was that we could experience
forgiveness for our many sins.
However, in order for everything
to work for us the way Jesus Christ
and our Almighty God wanted it
to there had to be a resurrection.
That is why we have Easter; it is to
celebrate the resurrection of Jesus
, Christ from the dead! Oh how
blessed we are, to know that we
have someone that cares so much,
about us!
Some people have started calling
Easter Sunday, resurrection Sun-
day, and that is very appropriate
too, don't you think so'? Without it,
there would not have been an
Easter Sunday at all, would there.
So many people never think of the
real reason fqr Easter; just as many
never think of the real reason for
Christmas; but let's not forget, peo-
ple. Let's remember the sacrifices
that were made for us while we
were yet sinners. And lets thank
our God for all of these things.
Let's let Jesus know that we
appreciate all of the things he
endured for our sakes; and let's let
the world witness a loving Christ-
like spirit within us. What
unspeakable joy!

"Oops, I made a
mistake ..."
This is a true account
recorded in the police
log of Sarasota.
An elderly Florida
lady did her shopping
and, upon returning to
her car, found four
males in the act of
leaving with her vehicle.
She dropped her
shopping bags and drew
her handgun,
proceeding to scream at
the top of her voice, "I
have a gun, and I know
how to use it! Get out
of the car!"
The four men didn't
wait for a second
invitation. They got out
and ran like mad. The
lady, somewhat shaken,
then proceeded to load
her shopping bags into
the back of the car and
got into the driver's
seat. She was so shaken
that she could not get
her key into the ignition.
She tried and tried, and
then it dawned on her
why. For the same
reason she did not
understand why there
was a football, a Frisbee
and two 12-packs in the
front seat.
A few minutes later,
she found her own car
parked four or five
spaces farther down.
She loaded her bags
into the car and drove
to the police station to
report her mistake. The
sergeant to whom she
told the story couldn't
stop laughing. He
pointed to the other end
of the counter, where
four pale men were
reporting a car jacking
by a mad, elderly
woman described as
white, less than five feet
tall, glasses, curly white
hair, and carrying a
large handgun. No
charges were filed.
Have you ever made a
mistake? Well of course
you have, we all have.
What did you do after
you made that mistake?
Did you get down and
depressed? Did you feel
ashamed or maybe
embarrassed? Did you
continue to dwell on it
and become consumed
with the thought of your
mistake'? Do you still at
times think about the
mistakes you have made
in life and question
yourself as to why you
did this or that? Do you
ask what if? What if you
would not have done
this or that, how might
my life be different?
We have all made
mistakes and we will
continue to make
mistakes. What we must
do after we have made a
mistake is, learn from it
and move on. Do not
dwell on the past. If you
are dwelling on the past
you are not looking
towards the future.
Each and everyone of
us will make mistakes in
our walk with God, but
it is how we respond to
those mistakes that will

Let Your



Wes Webb

determine our worth in
the kingdom of God.
Paul made several
mistakes before he
began his walk with
Paul said of himself,
"It is a trustworthy
statement, deserving full
acceptance, that Christ
Jesus came into the
world to save sinners,
among whom I am
foremost of all"
(1 Tim 1:15).
Paul understood he
had done many things
contrary to the will of
God, but he learned
from his mistakes and
was determined to do
I believe Paul
understood what Jesus
spoke of in Luke 9:62
when he said, "No one,
after putting his hand to
the plow and looking
back, is fit for the
kingdom of God." We
cannot dwell on the
past, we must press on
towards the goal.
Read carefully what
Paul said to the church
in Philippi, "Not that I
have already obtained it
or have already become
perfect, but I press on
so that I may lay hold of
that for which also I was
laid hold of by Christ
Jesus. Brethren, I do
not regard myself as
having laid hold of it
yet; but one thing I do:
forgetting what lies
behind and reaching
forward to what lies
ahead, I press on toward
the goal for the prize of
the upward call of God
in Christ Jesus" (Phil.
Remember we will all
make mistakes. How
will you respond to
those mistakes? Paul
said it was through the
blood of Christ that he
found forgiveness, "For'
He rescued us from the,
domain of darkness, and
transferred us to the
kingdom of His beloved
Son, in whom.we have
redemption, the
forgiveness of sins"
(Col. 1:13-14).

Icorret answers to this questin, one important way is for us
I _d b a 6aware.ofhe any ways that God loves us.
S l od l 'by the Way that someone treats us. A loving
S,spouse famy member,
or od friend is probably loved because of how kind and
considerate they are toward us. Once we observe and recognize
how many things our Heavenly
Father does for us,we can begin to
see how much He loves and cares
for us. Each day. God is reaching
out to us with His love, and we
must be aware of His presence
in our lives. Once we recognize
how much God loves us, God's
great commandment that we
should love Him with all our heart,
and with all our soul, and with all
I ourmind, will become truly real in
/ our lives.We love God because He
first loved us.
..You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with
a// your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first
commandment. And a second is like it, you shall love your neighbor as
yourself R.S.V. Matthew 22:37-39

Bonifay Elementary

has fun with food

Holmes County 4H/Youth
Who knew that learning
about broccoli could be so
much fun? At Bonifay Ele-
mentary School, learning the
current food pyramid and
making healthy snack choices
areexactly what has been tak-
ing place with Julie Johnson
and her first grade class. It is
all part of services provided
by the Holmes County Exten-
sion Service. The 4-H and
Family & Consumer Science
Departments have teamed
up to provide Food, Fun, and
Reading!, a unique nutrition
and literacy program
designed to teach youth
about the newest USDA food
pyramid by incorporating
children's storybooks with
food-related themes and
- hands-on nutrition activities.
In the five classroom ses-
sions, the first graders were
exposed to the importance of
eating enough servings of
each food group, safe food
preparation, and the variety
of foods available in each
food group to make snack
time fun and healthy. A
favorite activity during this
program was the production
of Johnson's Classroom Milk
Mustache Wall, in which each
child was able to mix dairy

ingredients for a delicious
milkshake to create the oh-
so-famous milk mustache
In addition, the children
were even able to celebrate
Dr. Seuss' birthday by eating
green eggs and ham from the
meats and beans food group
and demonstrating the
proper way to play Pin-The-
Eggs-On-The-Plate! The chil-
dren played active recre-
ational games and received
free pedometers to count
their healthy steps.
Johnson has already said
there is a difference in her
classroom and she reports the
children are bringing health-
ier snacks to school. They
even take the time to tell her
what food group their snacks
belong in. In addition, fami-
lies are getting involved as
well since nutritional infor-
mation, recipes, and kid-
friendly websites and games
were made available to the
parents for additional sup-
port and reinforcement at
If any school is interested
in educational programming,

Extension Service at

programming, contact Niki
Crawson at ncrawsonufl.edu

A Happy Birthday wash? If you sing
the entire Happy Birthday song while
washing your hands with soap, you will
successfully kill all bacteria and prevent
the spread of germs. There's nothing
really magical about the song, it's just the
proper length of time needed for washing
in order to kill the bacteria.
