Major work toward
building the sixth Habitat
Home on Morris Avenue
began at 8:30 a.m. Saturday,
Sept. 20. Volunteers from
Fort Rucker in Alabama are
helping build a home for the
Rosiah family.
Gail Davis, president of
Habitat for Humanity, said
these homes are built by
volunteers, and the future
owners also contribute their
share of "sweat equity."
"We're so very fortunate
to have these soldiers
volunteering from Fort
Rucker and are thankful to
have them here working with
us," Davis said. "We're still
in need of volunteers for the
inside of the house, especially
if they have any sheet


rock, flooring or painting
experience."
Davis said Habitat is taking
applications for the seventh
home to be built in Chipley.
"For those applying for
this new home, I must stress
that you must be renting in
substandard living conditions,
and a credit check will be
necessary," she said. "We will
also be needing volunteers for
that project as well."
The requirements for.
being a volunteer are that
you are old enough to make
sound job-related decisions.


Hours can be counted toward
community or public service
hours that might be required
for school, clubs and other
facilities.
All volunteers are given
food and beverages.
"The best thing about
being a volunteer, I think,
is that absolute feeling of
gratification and fulfillment
after a job well done for some
one in need," Davis said.
For more information for
Habitat home applications
or becoming a volunteer, call
Davis at (850) 258-9414.

The Chipley Police Depart-

from a cocaine trafficker, they
reported. A 1988 Oldsmobile
Regal was seized after inves-

vehicle to cocaine trafficking,
and it was forfeited through
the courts to the department.
'"As you can see, a great
deal of money that was made.

on this vehicle, and as long as
drug dealers continue to traffic

"I want to commend everyone for recycling;
I can see that after a week the bins are almost
full," Dobbins said. "I'm very proud of our citi-
zens who've taken it upon themselves to make
this much cleaner and healthier community by
recycling."
Washington County Recycling provided the
bins.

3 juveniles arrested CRIME
Continued from page Al


Responding to numerous complaints
from a few citizens on the north side of Chi-
pley in the area of Old-Bonifay Road, the
Chipley Police arrested three juveniles on
Tuesday night, Sept. 16, according to a news
release.
Shortly after 9 p.m., police were dis-
patched to the area of Old-Bonifay Road and
3rd Street to answer a complaint of juveniles
trespassing and prowling. When officers ar-
rived, they encountered three juveniles on


private property. Two of the minors were
arrested while the third fled from police on
foot He was taken into custody a short time
later.
The ages of the minors were 12, 13 and
15. They, along with their parents, have been
warned on several occasions to stay off the
streets and other people's property, especial-
ly during these times of night.
The juveniles are charged with disorderly
conduct, loitering and prowling.


Economy hurts Salvation Army


CECILIA SPEARS
Staff Writer
cspears@chipleypaper.com
The poor is economy affecting everyone,
including the Salvation Army. The store is
cutting its hours because of the economy. Its
new hours will be 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Mon-
day, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
"The customer count is down so the sales
count is down, and now we're unable to meet
overhead," said Estelle Keith, director of
store operations. "I don't think people really
know what all we have for them, and it's not
just merchandise, but services."
The Salvation Army can pick up large
items, such as furniture and large appliances.
"Large donations, especially furniture,
are down, and that's what gets us through
financially," Keith said.
Patricia McCallister, store manager, said
the store is always in need of furniture.
"Because the economy is down, we're
having to cut store hours," Keith said. "There
are some people who would come out to the
store every day, but now that the gas prices
are the way they are, they've had to cut back


on their visits."
"What it comes down to is we're here for
the people's needs when and if they need
them," McCallister said. "It's not just disas-
ter relief. We're also open to help people
with things like community or public service
hours for school, churches, clubs and correc-
tional facilities."
In October, a calendar party fundraiser to
benefit the Salvation Army Domestic Vio-
lence and Rape Crisis Program will be held
from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 18 at the Salva-
tion Army Corps Community Center in Lynn
Haven. Tickets are $10 a person for games,
lunch and a silent auction.
A Christmas sign-up will be 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. Oct. 27-28 for Washington County. The
sign-up is for needy families, children and el-
derly to receive needed or wanted items for
Christmas.
"It's like a wish list'for those families who
can't afford to have a Christmas," McCallis-
ter said.
For more information about furniture
pick-ups, store hours or other services, call
the, main office at (850) 769-7788 or the Chi-
pley branch at 638-7102.


The investigation be-
gan after Deputy Stanland
stopped a vehicle in Chipley.
Stanland and Chipley police
officer Scott Thompson dis-
covered Gunn and Wise were
at a. local motel in Chipley
and possibly in possession of
narcotics. These officers arid
a Chipley narcotics investi-
gator, went to the motel and
found methamphetamine
and drug paraphernalia.
Gunn and Wise were
charged with possession of
methamphetamine and pos-
session of drug parapherna-
lia and placed in the Wash-
ington County Jail.
"Hotel interdiction by the
Chipley Police Department
is just one of the many areas
that narcotics investigators
often pursue," Crews' said.

Chipley police nab
alleged counterfeiter
Chipley police officers
recently spotted a blue
1996 Oldsmobile they were
warned to be on the lookout
for. After stopping the car,
officers discovered Emmitt
Jones of St. Mary's Road
in Caryville was wanted for
armed robbery in Alabama.
Officers also discovered
Jones allegedly had been
passing counterfeit bills in


Jones


Chipley and adjoining areas.
Jones also was in possession
of counterfeit bills.
"The, quick actions of of-
ficers involved in the case
resulted in the arrest and
apprehensive of an alleg-
edly violent suspect," Crews
said. "Taking this guy off our
streets has saved potentially
dozens of our local busi-
nesses and citizens from be-
ing victims of the counterfeit
money."
Jones was charged with
armed robbery on a war-
rant from Alabama, uttering
counterfeit money and pos-
session of counterfeit money.

Opinion


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Amendment 2 opposes


freedom, justice, equality


To the editor:
One thing that should be self evident
to any intelligent voter who is watching
the current presidential campaign is
that a significant majority of the voters
on both sides of the political aisle want
to drive the final nails in the coffins
of sex and race discrimination in the
United States.
However, there is a schizophrenic
aspect about the elections here in
Florida. While we all are striving to
end these ages old bigotries, we are
at the same time promoting more
bigotries. Under the heading of
"marriage protection," certain groups
are trying to compel our government to
persecute citizens based on their sexual
orientation.
I am now in my 50th year of a
successful marriage, and I think that
gives me some expertise to comment
correctly on this. There is no way any
other person's sexual orientation can
affect my marriage in any way, and I
cannot perceive how it could affect any
other person's marriage.
"Marriage" is a relatively weak
institution, and what one makes of
'it has become the private personal
business of every couple and not
subjected to any outside "influence"
or scrutiny. "Marriage protection"
is just being used as a smokescreen
for legalizing the perpetual mindless
persecution of individuals because of


their personal, private business, their
sexual orientation.
The freedom of all of us will never
be secure so long as the freedom of
any of us is being violated by mindless
bigotry and prejudice. I consider my
freedom to pre-empt the mindless
bigotry of those promoting this
persecution. Vote NO against the
"Protection of Marriage" amendment,
Amendment 2 on your ballot. Keep
America the home of freedom, justice
and equality for everyone.
Charles W. Smith
Bonifay, FL

Religion does belong
in the classroom
To the editor:
If we had more principals, like Mr.
Davis, who taught the principles of the
greatest book ever written, then the
world would not be going the way of
Sodom and Gomorrah.
The public schools are the only
place God is not welcome. Why? What
better place for Him to be than with
our young people?
Let's put God back in the
classrooms of America, starting in
Holmes County.
We must not let unbelievers pull us
down to their level.
Dick Basht

It's an ellipsis


I've been reading O.E.
Rolvaag's Giants in the Earth.
One of the interesting things
about his writing is that he uses
quite a few ellipses.
Before we get confused, let
me be clear on something. An
ellipsis is three or four
consecutive periods.
It looks like this ...
Not to be confused
with an eclipse, which
is an astronomical
event that involves the
earth, moon and sun.
I was reading
Giants in the Earth One
when the little voice Andrew
in my head starts
talking to me.
"Look at all these ellipses,"
he says. "If he can use them,
why can't you? They worked
for Rolvaag, why not you,
too?"
Now I can't read anymore.
One, I want to shut that little
voice up. I've got a sneaky
feeling that if I let him talk too
long at any one time, I'll end
up in some psychiatrist's office
discussing what I feel about
the voice in my head. And two,
why can't I use ellipses?
I know ellipses are a little
outdated, but some skillful
crafting could bring them
back....
... I like the idea of starting
a sentence with an ellipse.
I think it gives the reader

FHP
SEPTEMBER
INSPECTION
CHECKPOINTS

Florida Highway Pa-
trol will conduct driver's
license and vehicle inspec-
tion checkpoints during the
month of September on
the roadways listed below
in Holmes, Jackson and
Washington counties.
Recognizing the danger
presented to the public by
defective vehicle equip-
ment, troopers will con-
centrate their efforts on
vehicles being operated
with defects such as bad
brakes, worn tires and de-
fective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will
be directed to drivers who
violate the driver's license
laws of Florida.
Officers will be on State
Roads 2, 10, 69, 71, 73, 77,
79, 81, 273, 276, 277 and
286 during the month.
County roads with in-
spection points include
69A, 162, 164, 165, 165A,
167, 169, 173, 177, 177A,
179, 181, 185, 271, 276,
279, 280, 284 and Snow Hill
Road.
The patrol has found
these checkpoints to be an
effective means of enforc-
ing the equipment and driv-
er's license laws of Florida
while ensuring the protec-
tion of all motorists.


Speaker Wayne Ates kept the crowd of about 50 entertained.

* If laughter really is the best medicine,
those attending the annual meeting of
Washington County Farm Bureau on Tues-
day night must have gone away feeling much
better than when they arrived.
The reason for their good feeling was the
evening's speaker, Wayne Ates, who rose to
speak after the meal arid had the good-sized
crowd roaring with laughter. Ates hails
from Jesup, Ga., but as a professional pub-
lic speaker, he has spent the past 30 years
visiting professional, civic, business, church
conventions and conferences in towns all
over the U.S.
He doesn't advertise, he said, because he
doesn't have to. Word of mouth is a good
advertiser. Local Farm Bureau President
Bruce Christmas probably could tell any-
one how to get in touch with the affable
speaker.
Following the meal, Christmas made
introductions including the Outstanding


Farm Family, Mr. and Mrs. Gary Aukema
and three children. They were honored re-
cently by North Florida Fair in Tallqhassee.
Christmas also gave committee reports.
Cub Scout Austin Sapp opened the pro-
-gram by leading the Pledge to the Flag.
Phillip Atkinson read the minutes and gave
the financial report, and agency manager
Barry Massey made comments about Farm
Bureau Insurance and other services.
Officers for 2008 nomination were an-
nounced by committee chairman Whit
Gainey. They are Bruce Christmas, Ann
Christmas, Ivey McClain, Carlton Padgett,
George Fisher and Allen Corbin.
The fun began when the business portion
of the meeting was over. Farm Bureau wives
. had brought several delicious-looking cakes
for an auction, and Ronnie Davis of Semi-
nole Stockyard served as auctioneer.
The speaker followed with about an hour
of jokes and good stories.

green
Vernon Elementary School is going green with one recy-
clable container at a time.
Students, teachers, administrators and the community are
teaming together to recycle. VES students are collecting alu-
minum, plastic and paper that will be reused rather than be-
ing dumped in a landfill.
Aluminum cans are collected and turned in for money
that will be used to help beautify the building additions that
are being constructed on the campus. The school also is call-
ing out to community members and asking them to save and
donate their aluminum cans for the cause.
This is a great way to save the environment and help the
"mean green recycling machines" at VES all at the same
time.
For information on how you can donate your aluminum,
contact the school at (850) 535-2486.

welcomed
An open house was held at the Bank
of Bonifay's Chipley branch Sept. 19 to in-
troduce new branch manager, Mike Lee,
a Chipley native who says she's glad to be
back home.
Lee is the daughter of Francis B. Hays,
who still has a barber shop in the down-
town Chipley area. Her aunt, Linda Cook,
is Washington County's clerk of court.
Her husband, Bill Lee, is employed by
the Washington County School Board.
Lee is not new to banking. She has 13
years of banking experience along with
management experience from owning her
own business for more than 20 years.
"It is a pleasure to be working with the
Bank of Bonifay," she said. "We are proud
to be in Chipley serving the needs of this
great county. Please come by and see us for
any and all of your banking needs."

David Tauton


to speak of


'Olden Days'

David Tauton of Wewahitchka will be speaker at the
October meeting of Friends of the Washington County
Library. He is known in this area for many things: as a
teacher, coach, principal, judge, newspaper editor, writer
and preacher. He and his wife are co-founders of a large
children's home in Wewahitchka, a thing he considers his
greatest achievement.
The meeting will be held at noon Oct. 2 at the Blue
Lake Community Center on State 77 in Chipley..
Tauton will speak to Friends as the author of "Olden
Days," in which he tells of many things that have long
since disappeared.
"However, the experiences that shaped the integrity
and principles of the author will make many of us pause
to remember similar experiences," said Cynthia Johnson,
Friends program chairman. "Those who are too young to
have been there and/or done that will wish they had been.
His true stories and poems will leave readers wishing that
the work ethic, honesty, compassion and family closeness
of the 'Olden Days' were more a part of our lives today."
Members of Friends and others who want to hear Tau-
ton are encouraged to attend. Those who would like to
have lunch for $7 should call Rosa Nell Baxley at 638-

four Tallahassee area lakes.
The lakes are Miccosukee,
lamonia, Carr and Jackson.
No one may hunt ducks,
geese, mergansers or coots
within 30 yards of a perma-
nent blind or anything that
violates Florida statutes pro-
hibiting unauthorized con-'
struction on state lands. It
defines a permanent blind as
anything that provides shel-
ter, cover or concealment for
a hunter but does not include
any rooted vegetation. Tem-
porary blinds, used only while
the hunter is present, also are
not included.

gulf gag grouper is undergo-
ing overfishing, and harvest
levels must be reduced. In-
terim federal regulations are
expected to be implemented
in January in the gulf waters
beyond nine nautical miles
offshore.
These rules would estab-
lish a two-fish per person
recreational daily bag limit
for gag grouper within the
five-grouper aggregate limit
and prohibit the recreational
harvest of gag grouper from
Feb. 1 through March 31.
The FWC also is proposing,a
rule amendment that would
increase the recreational
daily bag limit for red grou-
per from one fish per person
to two beginning Jan. 1.
A final public hearing on
these .proposed rule amend-
ments will be held in De-
cember in Key West.

GRACEVILLE
The Graceville Tigers (2-1) re-
bounded from last week's'close loss
to Marianna with a 54-18 win over an
outmanned Holmes County team (0-
3) Friday night.
The Tigers' option offense worked
all night as they ran up a 34-12 half-
time lead. Quarterback Justin Miles
opened up scoring with a twisting 34-
yard run with 7:36 left in the first quar-
ter. Treyshaun White's two-pointer
made it 8-0.
The Blue Devils made it inside
the Graceville 1 but turned it over on
downs, and the Tigers methodically
marched 99 yards in 12 plays, gaining
seven first downs, with Leron Hoover
scoring from the 1 with 1:31 left in the
first quarter to make it 13-0.
' Graceville recovered a Holmes
County fumble on the next drive at
the Blue Devil 42, and four plays later,
Miles went 29 yards to make it 20-0 as
the opening quarter came to a close.
Hollnes County answered follow-
ing a short kickoff as Jomar Concep-
cion's 20-yard completion to Devin
Bice put the Devils inside the Tiger
10. The teams traded penalties, but
C.J. Lee punched it in from the 5 to
give the devils their first score, 20-6
with 6:58 left in the half.
Miles' four-yard run and White's
two-pointer made it 28-6 with 5:28
left, and White's four-yard run made
it 34-6 with seconds left. A Tiger in-
terference call gave the Devils the ball
on the Graceville 26, and Concepcion

Wewa


defense


shines over


Cottondale
By Josh Weinfuss
Florida Freedom Newspapers

Wewahitchka's young defense grew up in a
hurry Friday night.
Aweek after giving up more than 40 points,
the Gators came out in a new look and shut
down Cottondale's fast and experienced of-
fense 26-14.
It was a vast difference from last weekend,
when both teams allowed more than 40 points.
After a little coaxing by his defensive coaches
and another viewing of last week's game film,
Wewahitchka coach Todd Lanter changed the
defensive front from a 5-3 set to a 4-4.
"It allowed them to get to the ball quicker,"
Lanter said. "The key was we did some things
last week where we had some people trying to
do other people's jobs. This week, people did
their own job."
If there was any question the change
worked, Wewahitchka.(1-1) forced three key
turnovers and held the Hornets' best player,
senior Jacob Herring, to minus-13 yards
rushing.
"It was because their defense played a heck
of a game," Cottondale coach Mike Melvin
said. "We didn't block anybody, and they put a
lot of pressure on our quarterback."
When Wewa needed its defense the most,
it rose to the occasion. With 2 minutes, 9 sec-
onds left in the game, Herring completed a
21-yard halfback pass to Nick Jackson. 'Rail-
ing by six points, but with a fresh first down,
the Hornets (1-2) had the momentum until
Cottondale quarterback Jesse Freeman was
sacked and lost the ball. The Gators' Marquis
Hurley recovered, and the Gators ran out the
clock.
Gator quarterback Cody Wade rushed for
52 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown. He
passed forl23 yards and two touchdowns,
both to Chance Knowles, on 8 of 13 passing.
The Gators' defense was so effective in the
first half that the only way the Hornets scored
was on a trick play. Herring threw a 40-yard
halfback pass to Terry Benbow late in the
second quarter to give Cottondale a 6-0 lead.
Freeman passed for the other TD, part of his
129-yard night on 13 of 22 passing.
While Wewa's defense was doing its job, the
offense was picking apart Cottondale, scoring
all its points in the.second half. Knowles had
69 yards and two TDs receiving and scored a
third TD on the ground.
'Anytime we got Knowles one on one with
someone, I feel we got a chance," Lanter
said.

Pumpkin decorating

contest Oct. 13-17


The fourth annual Pumpkin Deco-
rating Contest sponsored by Wash-
ington County Public Library will be
Oct. 13-17. The theme will be book
characters.
Children in kindergarten through
eighth grade may visit any library
branch to pick up a copy of the contest
rules and an entry form.
First of all, kids will have to have a
pumpkin. It can be any size, but the dis-
play must fit inside an 18-inch square.
Only pumpkins decorated like book
characters will be judged.
Do not carve or puncture the pump-
kin. Use paint, markers, crayons, glue,
and so forth.
Entries will be accepted from 3-5 p.m.


Oct. 13. Library staff will take pumpkins
from Wausau and Vernon libraries to
Chipley for the judging which will take
place at 4 p.m. Oct. 29 at the library.
There will be three classes:
Kindergarten through 2nd grade
Third through fifth grade
Sixth through eighth grade
Judges will grade on quality of work-
manship, 30 percent; general appear-
ance, 25 percent; originality of design,
25 percent; and theme, 20 percent. They
will not award a prize to an entry that
was not done solely by a child or which
is not a character in a book. Their deci-
sions will be final.
Winners will be announced at 4:30
p.m. Oct. 14 at the Chipley library.


Time to trick or treat


It's that time of year again. Plans for
trick-or-treating in downtown Chipley
have been made.
Merchants will be distributing candy
from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Oct. 31 All mer-
chants are urged to take part in this
community event, whether you are lo-
cated in downtown or elsewhere in the
Chipley/Washington County area.
Because of the large number of chil-
dren who traditionally participate, the
event is being relocated, for the safety
of the children. The change includes
blocking off north and south Railroad
avenues from State 77 to Martin Luther
King and blocking 7th and Martin Lu-


their King from Highway 90 to Church
Street (Farmer's Market area).
The streets and parking in this area
will be used for a "Trunk or Treat."
Merchants are to use these areas to set
up a booth or use a car or truck and
decorate it with emphasis on your busi-
ness and pass out candy from there.
Mike Lee from the Bank of Bonifay
is chairman of this year's event. More
information will be sent out as plans
are developed.
For more information or if you
would like to help with this year's
Trunk or Treat call 638-7892 or e-mail

BMI of at least 35 with one or more severe co-morbid conditions, or those who are 100 pounds or more over their estimated ideal weight. Contraindications:
The LAP-BAND* System is not recommended for non-adult patients, patients with conditions that may make them poor surgical candidates or increase the
risk of poor results, who are unwilling or unable to comply with the required dietary restrictions, or who currently are or may be pregnant. Warnings: The
LAP-BAND['4 System is a long-term implant. Explant and replacement surgery may be required at some time. Patients who become pregnant or severely ill,

The last ride


Twenty years ago, I drove a cab
for a living. It was a cowboy's life, a
life for someone who wanted no boss.
What I didn't realize was that it was
also a ministry. Because I drove the
night shift, my cab became a moving
confessional. Passengers climbed
in, sat behind me in total
anonymity and told me about
their lives. I encountered
people whose lives amazed
me, ennobled me and made
me laugh and weep. But
none touched me more than
a woman I picked up late one Let
August night.
I was responding to a call Light
from a small brick four-plex We
in a quiet part of town. I
assumed I was being sent
to pick up some party people, or
someone who had just had a fight
with a lover, or a worker heading
to an early shift at some factory in
the industrial part of town. When
I arrived at 2:30 a.m., the building
was dark except for a single light in
a ground floor window. Under such
circumstances, many drivers just
honk once or twice, wait a minute
and then drive away. But I had seen
too many impoverished people
who depended on taxis as their only
means of transportation. Unless a
situation smelled of danger, I always
went to the door. This passenger
might be someone who needs my
assistance, I reasoned to myself. So I
walked to the door and knocked.
"Just a minute," answered a frail,
elderly voice. I could hear something
being dragged across the floor. After
a long pause, the door opened. A
small woman in her 80s stood before
me. She was wearing a print dress
and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned
on it, like somebody out of a 1940s
movie. By her side was a small nylon
suitcase. The apartment looked as
if no one had lived in it for years.
All the furniture was covered with
sheets. There were no clocks on the
walls, no knickknacks or utensils on
the counters. In
the corner was a cardboard box
filled with photos and glassware.
"Would you carry my bag out
to the car?" she asked. I took the
suitcase to the cab and returned
to assist the woman. She took my
arm, and we walked slowly toward
the curb. She kept thanking me for
my kindness.
"It's nothing," I told her. "I just
try to treat my passengers the way
I would want my mother treated."
"Oh, you're such a good boy,"
she said. When we got in the cab,
she gave me an address, then
asked, "Can you drive through
downtown?"
"It's not the shortest way," I
answered quickly.
"Oh, I don't mind," she said.
"I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to
a hospice."
I looked in the rearview mirror.
- Her eyes were glistening.
"I don't have any family left,"
she continued. "The doctor says
I don't have very long." I quietly
reached over and shut off the
meter.
"What route would you like me


t
s '


to take?" I asked. For the next two
hours, we drove through the city.
She showed me the building where
she had once worked as an elevator
operator. We drove through the
neighborhood where she and her
husband had lived when they were
newlyweds. She had me pull
up in front of a furniture
warehouse that had once
been a ballroom where she
had gone dancing as a girl.
Sometimes, she'd ask me to
slow in front of a particular
building or comer and would
sit staring into the darkness,
Shine saying nothing. As the first
Webb hint of sun was creasing the,
horizon, she suddenly said,
"I'm tired. Let's go now."
We drove in silence to the address
she had given me. It was a low
building, like a small convalescent
home, with a driveway that passed
under a portico. Two orderlies came
out to the cab as soon as we pulled
up. They were solicitous and intent,
watching her every move. They must
have been expecting her. I opened
the trunk and took the small suitcase
to the door. The woman was already
seated in a wheelchair.
"How much do I owe you?" she
asked, reaching into her purse.
"Nothing," I said.
"You have to make a living," she
answered.
"There are other passengers," I
responded. Almost without thinking,
I bent and gave her a hug. She held
onto me tightly.
"You gave an old woman a little
moment of joy," she said. "Thank
you."
I squeezed her hand, then walked
into the dim morning light. Behind
me, a door shut. It was the sound
of the closing of a life. I didn't pick
up any more passengers that shift. I
drove aimlessly, lost in thought. For
the rest of that day, I could hardly
talk. What if that woman had gotten
an angry driver or one who was
impatient to end his shift? What if I
had refused to take the run or had
honked once, then driven away?
On a quick review, I don't ,
think that I have done anything
more important in my life. We're
conditioned to think our lives revolve
around great moments. But great
moments often catch us unaware ...
beautifully wrapped in what others
may consider a small one.
There is not just one main thought
I would like for you to concentrate
on or apply to your life, but really
the whole story. Take the time to do
something nice for someone else.
Help someone in time of need. We
have all heard the saying, "take time
to stop and smell the roses." I don't
think there is a sweeter smelling rose
you could stop and smell than one
like this.
"Be kindly affectionate to one
another with brotherly love, in honor
giving preference to one another."
(Romans 12:10 NKJ)

Money raised

to support

community

outreach

The'Baptist College of
Florida (BCF) in Graceville
gym was filled Sept. 9 with
sweet treats and students
looking for a good dessert to
take back to the dorm for a
late-night snack. After students
sampled each of the desserts,
they had the opportunity to
vote on the one they thought
tasted the best. Faculty and
staff judges also were invited
to grade the goodies on taste,
originality and presentation.
Once everyone had a chance
to vote, identical desserts were
auctioned off to the highest
bidder.
First place went to Megan
Powell, who made a chocolate
caramel cheesecake that
brought in $65. Her prize
included a $25 gift certificate
to Piggly Wiggly and "The
Best Baker Trophy." Other
winners included second place
Kevin Stone with his Pineapple
Coconut Cake and third place
Brittany Huston, who baked
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter
Whip Sandwiches.
The students raised $258.68
to go toward outreach projects
including a free car wash and
yard work done throughout the
Graceville neighborhoods.

BCF students build
Roman-style arch
Students in the
Appreciation of the Arts
class at The Baptist College
of Florida (BCF) in
Graceville left the comforts of
the traditional classroom and
went outside to test
their knowledge in
constructing a minor
architectural structure. The
class worked together in
building a stone arch inspired
by early Roman architecture.
The Romans, who invented,
this innovation in architecture,
greatly influenced the design
still seen in arenas, stadiums
and buildings today.
BCF students studied the
principles of what caused the
arch to work and then put
the theory into practice. The
students learned that some
of the concepts developed
thousands of years ago are still
applicable today.


No prayer, no way!


After living in large cities and
small towns, I will choose a small
town any day. Small towns might
not have all the conveniences of
the larger ones; and as a pastor, I
might never pastor a mega large
church and have a bunch
of full-time staff helping
lighten the load of the F
ministry pastoring in
small towns, thus never
receiving recognition from
the world, but that's OK,
too. Because I do love
the small town and rural Fro
county setting, first of all He
because that is where my Tim
Lord has called me to
serve and gave me a heart
for his people in these areas. I find
great joy in seeing the work He
does in individual lives first hand
and being able to know people
by their first names, and their
children.
Rural towns and counties often
get labeled as being behind times.
Maybe sometimes we are, and


H


maybe it is because we choose to
be. I say that because of things that
have happened recently here in
the Holmes County School system,
which at first you could say got
some of us very upset. As football
season began this year,
our school superintendent
decided it was time,
because rural Holmes
County has made the news
in the last few years many
times, we would begin to
follow the Supreme Court
e ruling that was passed back
rt on June 19, 2000 (Santa
all Fe Independent School
District vs. Jane Doe),
which basically says a
scheduled prayer cannot be prayed
over a public address system
at public school events. If you
remember, that is about the time
we first started hearing of people
being asked to bow their heads for
a moment of silence at sporting
events, at times of great natural
destruction such as hurricanes,


tsunamis, flooding, earthquakes,
at times when the terrorist would
attack innocent people with no
cause, after students would shoot
fellow students and teachers in
cold blood in their schools, at
shootings at the work places and
restaurants, etc.
One thing I have learned
through the years is that you really
learn what a person is made of
by the way they handle adversity
and crises in their life. And I have
to say I am proud of the way our
young people in Holmes County
have handled themselves in this
situation. Instead of sitting back
and doing and saying nothing
as many times their parents and
grandparents have done in the
past, which has brought us to
these situations they now have to
deal with, and instead of causing
a large disturbance in the school
and community, they arose to
the situation Friday at the game
between Bonifay and Freeport,
which some of the parents on the


other side of the stadium even
took notice of and applauded.
Those who were at the opening
ceremony witnessed that which
seemed bad, turned into something
good and maybe even better than
what we had at first. When the
announcer asked everyone to
stand for the moment of silence, as
everyone stood, the cheerleaders
on the field began to pray out loud
what we commonly call "The Lords
Prayer" (Matthew 6:9-13), and
as they did, those in the stadium
joined in. So instead of one person
praying and acknowledging the
Lord and our desire for His
blessings, hundreds of prayers
went up together as people from
probably a hundred different
churches came together in one
accord and honored our Lord in
public worship, exercising their
"First Amendment" rights.
As Charlie Newman, pastor
of East Mount Zion United
Methodist Church and President
of the Bonifay Ministerial


Association, and I became aware
of what was taking place among
our young people, we became so
excited, as we heard how God
was bringing all this together for
His glory. As Charlie rejoiced, he
began to proclaim it as the "No
Prayer, No Way" campaign.
Personally I was not able
to attend that particular game
because of prior commitments,
but this Friday as Bonifay plays
Northview, I look forward to
joining with our cheerleaders,
students, opponents on the other
side of the field and all of you, as
Memorial Field erupts into a time
of blessing our Lord for his many
blessings upon us.

BCF continues



online classes


For many college
students, back-to-school
time is associated with thick
textbooks, new friends,
moving into dorm rooms
and freshly printed syllabi.
But for some students
at The Baptist College
of Florida (BCF), back-
to-school time means
online discussion forums,
downloading an MP3 file
to listen to a lecture or
logging in to their classes
to take that big test. In fact,
this particular image of a
college student has never
been more accurate, at BCF
or nationwide, as more and
more students are pursuing
their degrees through online
education.
BCF has been offering


classes online since 2000.
Starting with the fall term,
degrees available to online
students now include a
bachelor of arts in ministry
studies and a bachelor of
arts in Christian studies,
which replaces the previous
online bachelor degree.
The flexibility of the
online environment extends
beyond the scope of just the
students. Courses are taught
by faculty from a variety of
locations and include not
only professors who teach at
the Graceville campus but
adjunct faculty from around
the country.

Let Go and Let God
Are there worries or concerns in our life that are mak-
ing us tense? If so, we should release them into God's
are and let Him handle them. Imagine that our cares are
like helium balloons
which we are strug-
gling to hold onto.
Just let go of them
and let them rise up
to heaven and go out %AN
of sight. Trust God
to take care of them.
Now of course, there TRASH
may be some things
which we have to do
ourselves in order to
fulfill an obligation,
but even then, we
don't need to worry
about such things.
Just do it and be done with it. Also,we should realize
that God may not handle the worry or concern in the
way that we thought He would. Again, we don't need
to worry about this. We have to learn to let go of our
cares and concerns and literally release them into God's
hands. Most of the things we worry about are illusory in
the first place, i.e.,they are things we really can't control
anyway. So,we should stop worrying, and fix or change
the things in our life that we can change, and give the
rest of them to God. He can handle them.

Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good
word makes it glad. New K.J.V. Proverbs 12:25
