Managing Editor
TALLAHASSEE The special ses-
sion of the Florida'Legislature is
tackling the state's budget woes,
and new Republican State Rep.
Brad Drake is part of that delibera-
tion. The District 5
officeholder repre-
sents. Holmes and
Washington coun-
ties, and he dis-
cussed the special
session in an inter-
view Monday.
"It's not a fun sit-
uation to have to cut BRAD DRAKE
a lot of money out State Representative
of the state budget,
but we have a job to
do," Drake said. He expects a cut of
about $2.3 billion because of declin-
ing state revenues.
Drake serves on the Transpor-
tation and Economic Development
committee among others, and he
said most cuts would be based on
agency recommendations. That in-
cludes not filling vacant positions.
'A lot of what would be reduced
are positions where someone re-
tired that we would not fill," Drake
said. "We are also looking at areas
where we can create efficiency in
operations. Most of the reduction
would be through positions that
would not be filled."
Gov. Charlie Crist recently said
he wanted to avoid layoffs of state
Drake, who succeeded Don
Brown in District 5, noted that the
governor also asked departments to
hold back four percent of this year's
budget. Between that and other ac-
tion, Drake said overall cuts could
be close to the rumored 10 percent
across the board.

Drake: Sansom did
the right thing
Drake also addressed Speaker
of the House Ray Sansom's resig-
nation from his $110,000 position at
Northwest Florida State College.
Sansom was strongly criticized for
taking the job after he worked to-
ward the college getting more than
$25 million in appropriations.
Drake said Sansom did the right
thing for the good of the Legislature.
"Ray's actions are genuine in
intent -so the situation would not
cause any additional distractions
for his colleagues in the House and
Senate," Drake said.
"The speaker is an honest and
genuine person, and it's unfortu-
nate that his new position was con-
strued by a lot of media outlets as
something criminal, and that's not
the case. He honorably stepped
down from the position to concen-

Why Refinance Back into a 30-Year Loan?

Refinance Your Mortgage for Rate and

Payment Reductions

By Christopher Shearer, Mortgage Consultant
America One Finance, Inc.
One of the biggest reasons homeowners
refinance their mortgage is to obtain a
lower interest rate and lower monthly
payments. By refinancing, the borrower
pays off their existing mortgage and
replaces it with a new one. This can often
be accomplished with a no-points no-fees
loan program, which essentially means
"no cost" to the borrower.

In the no-points no-fees scenario, the
mortgage consultant uses rebate monies
paid by the lender to pay off non-
recurring closing costs for the borrower.
These are "one time" fees such as escrow
or attorney fees, title insurance,
document preparation, tax service, flood
certification, processing and under-
writing fees, etc. The bonrower is still
responsible for recurring fees such as
interim insurance, properly taxes or
insurance policy payments.

The question often asked
is, "But why should I go
back into a 30-year loan?"

Refinancing typically occurs when
mortgage interest rates drop significantly.
but borrowers with recently improved
credit scores (from paying off credit
card debt, making mortgage payments
on lime, etc.) are often candidates for
better interest rates as well. If you
haven't checked your credit score in a
while, it's a good time to call a mortgage
consultant to see where you stand.


The question often asked is, "But why
should I go back into a 30-year loan?"

There are two schools of thought on this
subject, and the mortgage consultant
should work hand-in-hand with the
borrower's financial planner to determine
what works best for their mutual client.

One option is to lake the route of the
"same payment" refinance, and actually
pay off the loan faster and save money
on interest fees in the long-run. If
refinancing results in a lower monthly
payment, the bonrower can still continue
,making the same payment they made in
the original loan, and the extra money
will be applied to the principal balance.

For example: Let's say you have 25 years
remaining in Vour current loan. and you
reliance back to a 30-yc:'ar loan with a
slightly lower interest rate, resulting in a
payment reduction of $200 per month.
(Note: This is just an example. 'he
actual amount could vay.) You could
then take that extra $200 per month and
apply it toward the principal on the new
loan. At this rate. the loan will be paid
off in 22 years and four months, which is
two years and eight months less than the
original loan.

On the other hand. if the borrower's
financial planner is a proponent of best-
selling author and investment guru
Douglas Andrew's philosophies (see
missedd Fortune), he or she may suggest
investing the extra money in a side-fund
that could earn a better rate of return and
grow to the amount of the mortgage (and
beyond) in even less time. This method
provides excellent liquidity. but having
more direct access to this money may be
too tempting for some homeowners.

Regardless of the reason for the
refinance, the mortgage consultant will
need to know what the-existing loan
scenario entails, review the homeowner's
long-term goals, and provide a compre-
hensive spreadsheet that compares and
contrasts the Nvarious loan programs

Bear in mind. refinancing to obtain a
lower interest payment could also result
in a lower deduction at tax time. The
homeowner's mortgage consultant and
financial planner should work hand-in-
hand with their mutual client's best
interest in mind.

Dreaming of

heavy machinery

When I was in elementary school, I had an odd re-
curring dream. The dream always began with me and
my family, and also one of my friends. Each time I had
the dream, the friend role was played by someone dif-
My dream was set in the desert.- We
were all alone, isolated from any civi-
lization, and all we had to protect our-
selves from the elements was a run
down shack. Most of the dream took
place around this shack, as it was the
only stationary construction in my
ANDREW Then on the horizon, there appeared
HOLLINGER miles and miles of bulldozers, too many
One Word to count. They were side by side, roll-
ing in our direction. It was clear to me
that the bulldozers intended to run over both us and
the shack. It was my job (and only my job) to figure out
how to escape from the impending doom.
Occasionally, one of the other people that appeared
in my dream would offer me a suggestion. But their
suggestions never worked. I knew that I had to discov-
er the solution myself.
Wait, it gets weirder.
If the bulldozers got too close to the shack, I could
simply wish them back a couple of miles. This gave me
more time to try to come up with the answer. Through-
out the course of a night, I would wish back the bulldoz-
ers several times.
One night, I remember trying to' use my ability to
wish the bulldozers back to my advantage. I thought
that we could start walking parallel to the line of dozers
and eventually reach the end. If the machines got too
close, I'd wish them back again. That plan didn't work,
the bulldozers circumnavigated the globe. The solution
would need to be cleverer, and less obvious than that,
or so I thought.
I had this dream over and over again. I could never
find the answer. All I had at my disposal was my ability
to give myself more time to think and keep my family
and friends from getting squashed.
Everything changed for me one day in third grade.
I had been having the dream more often, and I really
needed to find the answer. I was standing in the lunch
line with my buddies Troy and Justin, and I confided
every detail of the dream.
When I finished explaining my dilemma, Troy looked
at me and asked, "Why don't you just wish for the bull-
dozers to disappear?"
That was it. I knew that was the answer. It was so
obvious, right there at my fingertips, and I never fig-
ured it out. At that point, I had the answer, and I could
not wait to have my dream again.
But I never had the dream again.
I never got the opportunity to try out the solution.
That's how I know that I had found the real answer. It
has been over fifteen years since I've had my bulldozer
I have no idea what the dream meant. I know that I
had to discover the solution, but I couldn't. That's why
it's been fifteen years and the dream is still with me.
Finding the solution was my job but my friend had the
This dream was the first -time I learned that you
can't always do everything yourself. It is okay to use
your resources, and it is just fine to get help. And I
think that's an important lesson to learn.

Is Obama a natural-born citizen?

LIMA, Ohio The most underre-
ported story of 2008 has to be the
continuing saga of a few brave souls
who are working through the courts
to force President-
f elect Barack Obama
to prove his citizen-
-t. ~ '- This lack of cov-
I,,, erage is just the lat-
"L est example of why
I have mostly lost
OPINION hope for the main-
R NIUN stream media in the
Ray Lucente United States.
Thanks to the
lack of media coverage, many of you
reading this may be unaware of the
multitude of lawsuits challenging
Obama's citizenship and his legal
right to be president.
The Framers, when putting to-
gether our Constitution, inserted
Article 2, Section 1, Clause 4, which
tells us. "No Person except a natural
born Citizen ... shall be eligible to
the Office of President." The same
clause prevents Austrian-born Cali-
fornia Gov. Arnold A. Schwarzeneg-
ger from being president.
There have been at least 17 law-
suits filed in state and federal courts
alleging that Obama does not meet
the constitutional requirement of
being a natural-born citizen.
The lawsuits filed all have vary-
ing theories on Obama's citizenship,
including that he was not born in
the United States, that he became
a citizen of Indonesia when he was
adopted, or that he had dual citizen-
ship at birth, which means he was
not a natural-born citizen.
The lawsuit with which I am most
familiar was filed in a federal court
in Pennsylvania by Philip Berg, a

That lawsuit alleges that Obama
was born in Mombasa, Kenya. Berg
says he has a recording of Obama's
grandmother, Sarah Obama, saying
she was present when Obama was
born in Kenya.
Berg further claims that Obama
himself and other members of his
family have made conflicting state-
ments as to where he was actually
born. Additionally, Kenyan officials
have said Obama was born in Ke-
Much of the controversy sur-
rounds Obama's birth certificate.
The state of Hawaii has refused to
release the long-form or "vault"
copy of the birth certificate. Obama
has also refused to release the long-'
form copy.
Back in June, the campaign
did release a short-form certifi-
cate, which is a certificate created
by Hawaii that says the long-form
certificate is on file. However, ac-
cording to Berg, the campaign only
released the short-form certificate
to The Daily Kos, a left-wing blog,
and FactCheck.org, a' pro-Obama
organization. Additionally, Berg has
called the short-form certificate a
Berg brought the case to the U.S.
Supreme Court and was initially de-
nied by Justices David Souter and
Anthony Kennedy before submit-
ting his petition to Justice Antonin
The Supreme Court has sched-
uled two conferences on the case,
one for Friday and a second one for
Jan. 16, four days before Obama will
take office.
I do not know if Obama is a natu-
ral-born citizen. My instincts tell

me that it would have been difficult
for him to hide that fact for so long.
However, citizenship law can be
very murky and Obama's reticence
on the matter is disturbing.
The whole controversy might be
nothing more than a crazy conspir-
acy theory. Then again, it might be a
valid argument.
The whole matter could easily be
settled by the state of Hawaii releas-
ing the long-form certificate, some-
thing the Supreme Court can force
if it accepts the case for arguments.
There is much at stake here. This
is a serious constitutional question.
If we find out later that Obama was
not a natural-born citizen, then ev-
erything he did as president, trea-
ties, laws, executive orders, etc.,
would be invalid.
The candidates spent more than
$1 billion and two years vying for
the job. Would it not make sense to
give lawyers an afternoon arguing
the issue in front of the Supreme
Court? That is the least we could do
to make sure the person taking the
oath of office actually meets the re-

ing less.

Keep it clean or at least uncluttered

The Orange County Register
President-elect Barack Obama
is reportedly committed to signing a
massive "stimulus" plan of govern-
ment spending some estimates are
as high as $850 billion almost as
soon as he takes office January 20.
Yet even as committed a proponent
of government spending as the key
to a healthy economy as Vice Presi-
dent-elect Joe Biden has expressed
the fear that the package will be
"Christmas-treed" with all sorts of
special-interest projects more suited
to buying votes than to creating jobs
or repairing infrastructure. The U.S.
Conference of Mayors has presented
a $73-billion wish list to Congress
heavy on amenities like sports parks
and light on fixing bridges or expand-
ing roadways.
The fear is certainly well-founded.
Just last September, the price of pass-
ing the $700 billion financial stimulus
package that has so far done little
or nothing to spur economic activity
(and whose details are still hidden
behind a veil of secrecy) was almost
$150 billion worth of pork-barrel proj-
ects calculated more to pad congres-
sional reelection margins than to pdd
economic value. Congress being Con-

gress... well, you know.
Alice Rivlin, who was President
Clinton's budget director, has sug-
gested quick approval of a smaller
package that would inject money into
the economy quickly, such as aid to the
states in meeting the expanding costs
of Medicaid and welfare, additional
unemployment insurance, reductions
in tax withholding and perhaps even
a payroll tax holiday. She supports
more infrastructure spending but
notes that such spending takes time
to trickle down to ordinary folks and
should be well-designed rather than
slapped together quickly.
That would certainly be prefer-
able to a massive pork-laden pack-
age. But it ignores the fact that any
government spending must come
either from taxing productive activity,
borrowing, or printing money. None
of these is economically sustainable
over the long haul. The only way to
increase real wealth in a country is
through private, profit-making eco-
nomic activity that builds capital that
can be invested in further economi-
cally productive activity. Real stimu-
lus should encourage such activity.
If the new president really wants
to encourage, sustainable growth, he
would start by looking to public-pri-
vate partnerships for infrastructure,

then expand his thinking to the loos-
ening of regulatory strictures that
have deterred capital investment
The Sarbanes-Oxley accounting reg-
ulations, for example, have not only
added to the cost of doing business
while doing little or nothing to pre-
vent fraud (hello, Mr. Madoff), they
have virtually destroyed the creation
of new companies. Repealing or sus-
pending them would liberate billions
in venture capital.
Eliminating or suspending the
CAFE fuel efficiency regulations
would do more to help Detroit than a
brace of bailouts. Reducing the capi-
tal gains tax Would encourage entre-
preneurship. Building truck lanes
(for which private companies might
even pay) would increase efficiency
and reduce distribution costs.
We don't expect Mr. Obama to em-
brace such measures. But while he is
struggling with Congress to keep his
stimulus package from becoming too
pork-laden, he would benefit from re-
membering the real sources of wealth
and considering how the dead hand of
government keeps them imprisoned.
That would be change we could be-
lieve in, and a better anti-poverty pro-
gram than yet another government
training program divorced from the
real needs of the marketplace.

A new year perspective on my old pet peeves

Mostly I write on topics I suspect
concern a wide enough audience.
Columnists don't just write on any-

thing that pops into their
minds but need to do a bit
of service to reader-clients.
But, if one has a regular
venue for one's columns, it
maybe fine, now and then, to
indulge oneself with a topic
or two that's more personal.
Even these will, of course,
aim to please, if only by invit-
ing readers to know a bit of
the writer.



In that spirit, I am going to take
the risky step of laying out some of
my pet peeves as we close out one
year and begin another anew. These
are not the most serious complaints
I have about culture, politics, reli-
gion and other human institutions.
Individualists like me will fully ac-
cept that some stuff is strictly per-
sonal, amounts to likes or dislikes
and implies nothing about what oth-
ers ought to feel, do or pursue.
Take my favorite color, for an ex-
ample. I am nuts about red-orange,
the'color of the California poppy and
the old Mustang and the setting sun
over the Pacific. Yes, this is the op-
posite of a pet peeve, more of a pet
love. It is, however, exactly personal

and idiosyncratic.
What about a genuine pet peeve,
then? Well, heavy bangs would serve
as a good case in point. Can-
not stand them even if the
^ face is gorgeous in all other
S respects. Somehow these
bangs even suggest some-
thing more generally puz-
zling -- why would some-
one wish to hide a forehead?
S Is there some message afoot
ACHAN in that, like, "I don't like my
lion brain?" No, need not be, but
it's somewhat intimated, at
least for me.
Pointless jargon, the sort that
reeks of having been manufac-
tured despite there being no need
for it. I am nearly paranoid about
this some folks write, it seems,
to prevent their being understood.
Again, I could be wrong, but I am
awfully suspicious. (I guess one rea-
son is that escaping into jargon is
a temptation of writers when their
ideas aren't clear enough to them,
but admitting this isn't cool.) At
times it appears eviderit that some
of the most erudite folks, highly
praised scientists from prestigious
institutions, will succumb to this
temptation, at least in regions of
their, discipline they are still con-

fused about.
Cops who swagger really put me
off, and this includes nearly all those
out there enforcing the rules of the
road. Frankly, I don't even regard
these people as police officers or of-
ficers of the law because rules of the
road, however necessary, are just
that, rules of the road, just a step or
severalabove rules of attire at some
private school. Yes, yes, the rules
sort of aim at orderliness and even
safety, but more often they appear to
aim solely at revenue generation. I
suppose this pet peeve stems in part
from my near-anarchism, my fierce
resentment of all those who lord it
over other people who are carrying
on in mostly peaceful ways.
I won't go into the types of driving
that I despise. It would fill a book.
But here is at least a small sample
of what I just happen to like and dis-
like. It may say a bit about me, for
better or for worse.

Washington County News I AS

Prattler recalls Christmases past in Bonifay

The early deadline for printing
both the Christmas and New Year
issues of the paper has allowed
my thoughts to still linger in the
Christmas mode:
Before the "big day" actually ar-
rived, the "prattler" found himself
making his long-established trek
to Bonifay. Readers will
recall this was a "must" for ,
the Wells family. We made
the last minute shopping
trip of "going to town"
which, in our household, 'I
was synonymous with "go- .
ing to Bonifay."
The Christmas Eve vis- PER
it showed Fred's, south of PRA
Bonifay and Dollar Gener- Pe
al, to the west, still buzzing jerry
with last minute shoppers.
Little activity was seen on Wauke-
sha, the rlain street of the town.
There was absolutely no walking
traffic on the Bonifay sidewalks.
This is a far cry different from
my memory of downtown Boni-
fay during the days of my early
upbringing. Pelt's 5 and 10 Cent
Store,.Bonifay Hardware, Swin-
dle's Hardware, Padgett's Drugs,
Bonifay Drug Store, several gro-
cery stores including 0. K Wil-
liams, Rich's Grocery and An-
drews' Meat Market were busy as
could be even on Christmas Eve.
The barber shops and the picture
show remained open late on that
last day prior to Christmas.
Not only did my generation

know Bonifay as the only trade
center of the area, my dad and
mother, Hugh and Marie Harris
Wells, along with grandparents,
James Thomas Wells and Hannah
Malinda Brock Wells, depended on
the merchants in the town as their
source of trade. This was not only
at, Christmas time, but all
the year long.
Grandma related to
S the grandchildren many
times her memory of two
prominent and well known
Bonifay business men and
how they got their start in
RY'S business. The two were
TTLE brothers, N. D. Miller and
Wels Morgan Miller. Their first
s experience as entrepre-
netrs begarimore as street
vendors rather than establishing a
"store front" marketplace.
According to Grandma, Morgan
would stand on the sidewalk, con-
tinually repeating in a slow, drawl-
ing voice "fresh parched peanuts,
5 cents a pack," and N. D. would
echo his brother in a sharper,
faster manner with the chant "ice
cold lemonade-soda water-milk-
The Miller's acumen as shrewd
business men allowed them .to
serve Bonifay customers for three
Daddy's first cousin, Millard
Anderson, son of Jim Anderson
and Jenny Brock Anderson, did
his first bartering transactions

A scene at the intersection of States 79 and 90 in Bonifay
in 1955 when the four corners of the busy intersection were
bustling service stations.

with the N. D. Miller and Company
store in Bonfiay. Millard swapped
coon hides at Christmas time for
what he called "big oranges". He
was so proud of his new found fruit
that he delivered some to kinsman
all around the countryside on his
mule and wagon.
When he arrived at the Wells
home, my grandmother had to con-
front him with the bad news "Mil-
lard, them ain't oranges, them are
grapefruit and there ain't enough
sugar in Bonifay to sweeten one of
them." *
Another oft repeated story by
our dad was that of another cous-
in, Jeff Bush, making the Christ-
mas shopping tour at a tender age
with his parents, Jesse and Char-
ity Brock Bush. Jeff had one nickle
to spend. He was allowed to visit
a few of the Bonifay stores on his

own. Upon rejoining his parents,
his nickle was gone and he did
not have anything to show for it.
Upon questioning as to what hap-
peried to the coin, his reply was "I
gave it to that Bonifay man!" The
mother inquired "which Bonifay
man, Jeff?" His answer was "that
anotherr Bonifay man!"
Our dad told us that, as a young-
ster, his Christmas purchases
mostly consisted of a new pocket
knife or a pair of shoes. He was
allowed to shuck and shell corn
which he either swapped with N.
D. Miller, or stopped by the grist
mill and had the corn ground into
meal before proceeding into town
for the trade.
The preceding generations of
Wellses and Brocks, going back to
my great-grandparents, no doubt
did most all of their trading in the

newly formed town of Bonifay.
The building of the railroad
brought my great grandfather,
John Cole Wells, wife Lucinda
Speigner Wells, and 9-year-old son,
James Thomas Wells, to Holmes
County in 1881. The family broke
away from a long lineage of Wells
in Butler County, Ala. in a commu-
nity known as Oakey Streak. My
great-grandfather was a crafts-
man at hewing cross ties and the
railroad construction provided him
employment for several years.
My Brock ancestors possibly
did their share of bartering in or-
der to purchase the necessities of
life. They were known as trappers,
hunters, loggers, herdsman of
sheep and cattle and farming.
As has happened in the past
several years, the massive Wells
Christmas gathering once again
took place in Bonifay We were
right where we all remembered
so vividly of being at Christmas
time. We were also enjoying the
comforts of the former Clyde B.
Brown home, now refurbished and
owned by the First Baptist Church
of Bonifay. Our sister, Hazel and
husband, Jack Tison, have access
to the qse of the beautiful home as
church members.
Maybe by next week, the mind
of the "prattler" will steer away
from reminiscing about Christmas
and will go forward to some other
See you next week.

BONIFAY The Graceville Ti-
gers came to Bonifay Saturday
night and came away with a pa-
per-thin win, beating the host
Blue Devils 56-55.
The Tigers started fast with
an 14-8 first-quarter lead before
the Blue Devils stormed back
behind four second-quarter three

pointers to tie it at 27-all at the
half. The teams swapped three
throughout the third quarter with
a layup off a steal by Aaron Mol-
lett and two free throws by Jer-
emy McGowan to give Holmes
County a 41-39 lead going into the
fourth quarter;
Neither team could break
away down the stretch with Mc-
Gowan's two free throws giving
the Blue Devils a 55-54 lead with
14.6 seconds left. That lead didn't

hold as Graceville's Byron Laster
went down the middle for a layup
with 6 seconds left. McGowan had
a chance as the clock ran down,
but tough Tiger defense gave the
visitors the win.

White noted that there were play-

White also was concerned
about his team's "mental mis-
takes,' including "throwing the
ball away with three seconds
left," and lack of experience, with
just one senior starter.

Craig Myrick led Graceville
with 19 points, and Laster had 14.
Gritty Justin Miles had 8 points.
Mollett led Holmes County
with 16 points, McGowan had 15

SLOCOMB, Ala. The Chipley
Tigers boys and the Bethlehem
Tiger girls invaded Slocomb,
Ala., on Friday night and came
away with close wins over the
determined host Red Tops.
The Tigers were ahead just
41-38 at the half as the 10-3 Red
Tops stayed close. In the end,
the Tigers won largely on three-
pointers, hitting 11 overall.
The Tigers were led by A.J.
Roulhac with 25 points (five
threes). Leon Broxton scored 24
(three treys), and Merkeith Bell.
scored three three-pointers for
nine points.
Clay Holmes led Slocomb

at halftime 28-22 in the "border

Bethlehem came back to take

the lead in the third quarter 40-
37 on Jennifer Hatcher's three
pointer and extended their lead
to 46-42 going into the fourth
quarter on treys by Hatcher and
Tara Thompson.
The Lady Wildcats looked to
be in control with 5:02 left wirth
a 54-46 lead, but the Lady Red
Tops chipped away to get as
close as 54-53 before Thompson
made a layup, and Megan Mc-
Donald hit a free throw to pro-

"one of the best we have played"
and said although the players
took the holidays off and were a
little rusty, they came back for

the first quarter before scoring

by Leon Broxton (two dunks)
and Karsten Whitson let the Ti-

halftime lead. Three-point shoot-
ing by Ryan Brigham, who also
had a dunk, helped Chipley take
a 54-32 lead going into the fourth

Residents lend a hand

Residents of the
Country Oaks Commu-

toys to make this past
Christmas a lot mer-
rier for 26 children in 11
families who live in the
southeast rural portion
of Chipley. Santa's help-
ers wrapped 78 gifts,
three each for newborns
through age 12.
Due to the recent
downfall in the economy,
many parents of these
children had been laid
off and didn't know how
they would be able to
provide Christmas gifts
for their children. When
word got out, Alan, one
of the community's
residents, suggested
holding a fundraising
bike ride. Along with a
generous donation from
his employer, a jar was

University of West Florida visits HCHS


BONIFAY The University of West
Florida visited with Holmes County High
School recently about its West Florida
recruitment program under the guidance
of new President Judy Bense, Ph.D.
"We're on a
campaign to as
many of the schools
as we possibly can
to become more
familiar with the
students and so
the students can
become more
familiar with us,"
said Director
of the Office of
Admissions Kim

also wanted to
recognize the
recipient of the

scholarship for full-time entering
freshmen and is considered the most
prestigious offered by the university to
incoming freshman.
According to the university's Web
site, the scholarship is only available
to Florida residents, and priority is
given to applicants from high schools
in West Florida. A separate scholarship
application is required and can be
obtained from the Office of Admissions,
from your high school guidance counselor
or at www.uwf.edu.
Brandon Young, attorney for the city of
Bonifay and an alumnus from UWF, was a
guest speaker.
"Some of the best memories I have
are from when I attended UWF, and the
university has done a lot for me," Young
said. "So if I were ever given the chance to
recommend a school to someone, it would
be UWF"
Bonifay mayor Eddie Sims was also a
guest speaker.
"I didn't graduated from the University
of West Florida, but I know of a lot of

prominent and successful people who
have," Sims said. "And if this is the type of
professionals they are producing, then I'd
have to say I'm for it."

in a friendly

atmosphere, on a
beautiful campus, at an affordable price,"
Bense said in her welcome speech on
UWF's main page.
"UWF's major research centers
have earned national and international
reputations, such as The Archaeology
Institute offers a unique marine
archaeology program where students
can explore historic shipwrecks and a
terrestrial archaeology program where
students can discover the remains of
America's first settlements by Europeans;
the Center for Environmental Diagnostics
and Bioremediation continues to conduct
invaluable research into the health of
Northwest Florida's natural resources and
many local businesses and organizations

New year time for reflection

If there is any time of year when
folks slow down a bit and do some
reflecting, I think New Year's tops the
list. I have found myself looking
back on what has been and
thinking about what's ahead.
2008 wasn't the best year
for our family. Foremost is
the memory of losing my dad,
"Granddaddy G." Then there
was the loss of little Maddie,
our family dog of more than
14 years. I'm sure I could BRYAN
brainstorm other events that Freedom N
were discouraging or stressful,
but that would simply be
searching in a glass that is half-empty.
Though I lost my dad, I gained a son-
in-law. He's a great guy and truly adores
our daughter. My wife and I have even
babysat the "grand dogs" on occasion.
How nice it has been to have puppy
companionship back in our home.
What about you and your family?
Have you set some goals as mom or dad
for 2009? That can certainly be a good




thing. But first, you might want to take
a few minutes and reflect upon 2008.
It isn't my intent for parents to
spend time dwelling on the
cup of parenting blunders,
pouring in a teaspoon of guilt
and stirring well. What I am
encouraging parents to do is
take a little time for honest
reflection in order to avoid
repeating past mistakes.
That way, wiser and more
EESON experienced decision making
s Service will be in order in 2009.
Life's ups and downs might
come without warning, but it's
all about perspective, as well as being
thankful for others in our lives.
Take time to reflect on your job as a
parent, and have a Happy New Year!

Bryan Greeson, a.nationally
certified school psychologist residing
in Gastonia, N.C., will answer your
parenting questions. E-mail him at

Get ready for the switch to digital television

Welcome,fellow Geeks, to
2009! For this first
column of the year,
I'd like to break from
answering questions to
talk about the biggest
single technology story
that has come along
in recent memory; .
the switch to digital
television, or DTV For
those of you who have IT'S G
been living under some Je
sort of technology
news-filtering rock for the past
few years, you need to know
that we're rapidly approaching



a watershed moment in the
evolution of broadcast
After being talked
about for many years,
digital TV will go online
in the United States
on Feb. 18, and the old
analog signals that have
been in use since the
late 1940s will-cease.
TO ME Most times, when
ner changes like this
are made, they are
backward-compatible. For
example, old black and white
TVs still worked after the switch

to color. However, the change
to DTV is NOT backward-
compatible, and analog tuner
TVs that are used to pick up
over-the-air television will cease
to function on Feb. 18 unless you
take steps to prepare.
If you have a TV aerial on
your house, or use a set of rabbit
ears on top of your TV that
includes you. However, if you're
like me, you probably have other
TVs that you don't use day-to-
day that also will be affected,
such as a portable TV or the
park, or a battery-powered TV
in your hurricane kit.

So, you may be wondering,
does that make these older
TVs just so much worthless
electronic junk after Feb. 18?
No. There are converter boxes
available that sit between the
antenna and the TV that will
tune the digital broadcast and
convert it into a format an old
TV can view, exactly the same
way a cable box tunes channels
your TV can't. These boxes are
widely available online and in
local electronics retailers for
around $40.
However, if you act fast, you
can get one free. The federal

government has made available
a number of coupons, good for
$40 toward the purchase of
a DTV converter box. There
are a limited number of these
coupons left, so you'll want to
try and get yours right away.
Visit www.DTV2009.gov, or
call 888-388-2009. With a little
planning, you'll be ready for the
big switch!

Another year has come
and gone, God has now
blessed us with the great
privilege of seeing the
beginning of a new year.
2009 "AC" "In the Year of
Our Lord" is now here.
By the way, isn't it great
how that after all the fuss
about using the word
"Christmas" when refer-
ring to largest celebrated
holiday of the year, and a
day which according to
the media, our economy
could not survive with-
out. Yet, a week later the
world celebrates that Je-
sus Christ was virgin born
and that His life, death
and resurrection changed
history and the calendar
as we know it, on New
Year's Day.
As we celebrate that
God has given us an-
'other year to share His
love with others, it is
also a great time to take
inventory and see what
we accomplished last
year, so that we can see
where we can do better
in the year ahead. Will
we carry a lot of baggage
that should have already

been taken care
of and turned in to
positive memories
and support for the
future? Will we en-
ter it with regrets
and baggage that .
will ruin the New FRO
Year even before it HI
begins? Or will we.: i
enter the New Year
excited about our
walk with our Lord, and
love that we share with
friends and family?
We know according to
Job 16:19 there is a record
of every moment we live
recorded in Heaven. But
do we really need to wait
till we get there to see
how we have done? Even
though a business may
keep good records of all
that they do, the records
are useless unless they
stop at some point and
evaluate themselves. So
each year, most success-
ful businesses will take in-
ventory. Because it helps
them know what they are
to pay taxes on. But it
also becomes a checklist
to see if they are actually
successful at what they

m Hall

have set out to do.
A good inventory
will help them see
in which areas of
their business that
they have accom-
plished their goal
and where they
have failed. A good
inventory will put a
spotlight on areas
that need immedi-

ate attention.
Inventory to a business
is equivalent to an annual
physical checkup for our
health. It's a time to look
for problems before it's
too late or too far gone.
Most churches even do
annual reports once a
year for the same reason.
If businesses, churches
and our bodies need an-
nual checkups, why not
our homes and ourselves,
do we need personal and
spiritual checkups? I
think so.
Before I could even
start to inventory my
home, to see if it is ac-
complishing what a home
should do, I must first
inventory myself, to see if
I am accomplishing that

which I should accom-
plish. A home is a place
where an individual or
many individuals dwell
together in a harmonious
atmosphere. It's a dwell-
ing where each person in-
volved feels safe, comfort-
able and accepted by all, a
home which honors God.
When taking inventory
of my home, the greatest
detail I feel that should be
searched out is whether
or not that our home is
accomplishing that which
I feel that it should, and
that it would be consid-
ered a Christian home
(A home in which Christ
would be delighted to
live). By the way, pictures
of Christ, the crucifix,
Bibles placed around the
house, or Madonna and
angel statuettes sitting
around a house does not
make it a Christian home.
Personally I have been
in homes where there
where many of these little
idol-ettes placed through
out the house but yet no
sign that His love abides
in the home and I have
been in many homes

where I saw no idol-ettes,
yet I felt the presence of
His love shared through
out the house by the con-
versations, the respect
and serving attitude of
each family member. You
see, that which makes a
home a Christian home
are the people who live in
the house. That's why the
inventory must begin with
you and me.
As the Bible teaches,
we need to judge our-
selves (1 Corinthians
11:27-32). In other words,
step outside of yourself .
and take a good look at
you. When you do, you will
probably find the person
whom you are looking at
needs a lot of improve-
ments. If you don't,
there's another, much
more serious problem
within your home and you
definitely need to open
your Bible. A Christian
home begins with me
first, having a personal re-
lationship with Christ. Be-
cause of that relationship
that I have, my home be-
comes a place of prayer,
openly and privately.

Private prayers because
He is my best friend, Lord
and Savior and He is the
head of the house. Open
prayers because we are
not ashamed that He is
part of our family, thus He
is included in everything.
After taking inventory,
hopefully we will find that
our home is qccomplish-
ing that which we have
set out to accomplish, a
home where,"Love" Him-
self dwells within us. It is
my goal as I, or whoever
else may take inventory
of our home, that every-
one will discover that it
is a home where Christ
lives. That it will be very
evident, not because of -
pictures, but because of
the person and people He
dwells within.

Disguised blessings: Finding the bright side in every situation

There is a place where
modern technological
conveniences go to die.
My place. During the past
,week alone we have sent
our van's fuel pump to
the automotive afterlife,
our washing machine to
laundry Valhalla and our
home.computer through
those big Windows in the
sky. They join the lifeless
metallic bodies of our
dishwasher, our micro-
wave oven and our food
processor, all of which
have given up the elec-
tronic ghost during the
last few months. If there
were laws against appli-
ance abuse, I'd be public
enemy number one.
Thankfully, we do
better with living things
-- not counting household
plants, flowers, grass and
tomatoes. Our five chil-
dren somehow manage
to survive -- even thrive
-- despite all the bad feng
shui and negative karma.
They are all healthy, hap-
py and well adjusted, give
or take the occasional dra-
ma major. And that, after
all, is what really matters.
At least, that's what my

wife Anita said.
"This is just stuff,"
she said soothingly, reas-
suringly, as I wrote out
a check to cover the in-
stallation of the new fuel
pump. "Yes it is," I said,
my fingers still trembling.
"Very expensive stuff. Do
you realize that this fuel
pump is costing me more
than the
first car I bought?" She
smiled playfully "What
a blessing!".she said. I
looked at her
curiously. "A blessing?" I
asked. "We just spent an
entire freelance check on
a fuel pump, and you think
it's a blessing?"
"Uh-huh," she said.
"What a blessing that we
had the money to cover
it!" She had a valid point -
as usual. But I couldn't let
her win this easily. "What
about-losing the wash-
ing machine at the same
time?" I asked. "Was that
a blessing, too?" "Sure,"
she said. "My brother
feels good about letting
us use his machine, and
I'm able to spend a little
more time with him and
his family while I wash,

our.clothes at his
house. And I'm
really going to ap-
preciate our new
washer when we
get it." She was
good. No question
about it.
Twenty-three years LEI
of living with me LIGH
had given her plen- W
ty of experience at
searching for silver lin-
ings. But I knew I had her
with the last one.
"And what about our
computer melt-down?" I
asked. "What's the bless-
ing in that?" A worried
look crossed her face.
This was tough, no ques-
tion about it. It's like they
say: -everyone makes mis-
takes, but it takes a com-
puter to really foul things
up. Then, suddenly, she
brightened. "You're not
staying up so late work-
ing on the computer," she
said, "so you're getting a
lot more sleep! That's a
good thing, isn't it?" She
had me there. I had actu-
ally noticed how much
better I had been feeling
the past few days, and had
already attributed it to

es Webb

getting more sleep.
"OK,'I give up -
- you Win!" I said.
"But how do you
do that?" "Do
what?" "You know
-- what you're do-
ing," I said. "Find-
ing the blessing in
the curse." "Oh,
that," she said. "It

isn't hard, really.
The blessing is always
there -- somewhere. You
just have to look for it.
SSometimes you have to
look pretty hard. But it's
there." Even at my place.
The previous was writ-
ten by Joseph B. Walker
and makes an important
observation. The Lord
has truly blessed all of us
with blessings. The great-
est blessing that we could
ever be given by anyone,
God gave us in His Son.
"Blessed be the God and
Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who has blessed us
with every spiritual bless-
ing in the heavenly places
in Christ, just as He chose
us in Him before the foun-
dation of the world, that
we should be holy and
without blame before Him

in love"(Ephesians 1:3-4
"No one can serve two
masters; for either he will
hate the one and love the
other, or else he will be
,loyal to the one and de-
spise the other. You cannot
serve God and mammon.
"Therefore I say to you, do
not worry about your life,
What you will eat or what
you will drink; nor about
your body, what you will
put on. Is not life more
than food and the body
more than clothing? "Look
at the birds of the air, for
they neither sow nor reap.
nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father
feeds them. Are you not
of more value than they?
"Which of you by worry-
ing can add one cubit to
his stature? "So why do
you worry about clothing?
Consider the lilies of the
field, how they grow: they
neither toil nor spin; "and
yet I say to you that even
Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one
of these. "Now if God so
clothes the grass of the
field, which today is, and
tomorrow is thrown into

the oven, will He not much
more clothe you, O you of
little faith? "Therefore do
not worry, saying, 'What
shall we eat?' or 'What
shall we drink?' or 'What
shall we wear?' "For after
all these things the Gen-
tiles seek. For your heav-
enly Father knows that you
need all these things. "But
seek first the kingdom of
God and His righteous-
ness, and all these things
shall be added to you.
"Therefore do not worry
about tomorrow, for tomor-
row will worry about its
own things. Sufficient for
the day is its own trouble."
(Matthew 6:24-34 NKJ) Let
us all quit worrying about
the things that we cannot
change, and start concen-
trating on spiritual lives
that we can change. This
New Year as you begin to
make your resolutions,
make resolution number
one to strengthen your
relationship with God!

The mouth of the
righteous speaks
wisdom, and his tongue
talks ofjustice.

New K.J.V. Psalm 37:30

The Bible tells us,"a good tree does
not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad
tree bear good fruit. For every tree
is known by its own fruit" Also, "A
good'man out of the good treasure
of his heart brings forthigood; and
an evil man out of the evil treasure
of his heart brings forth evil."(Luke
6:43-45) Obviously, these verses
are asking us to consider what type
of fruit we bear when we are deal-
ing with others. Just as every tree
is known by its own fruit, likewise
we are known by our actions and
our character. When we are inter-
acting with others, we should be
harvesting good will and friend-
ship by respecting the feelings of
others. And, we should constantly
try to represent a reflection of
God's love in a civilized and kindly
manner. Always trying to treat oth-
ers as we would like to be treated
is a good guide that will help us to
be a better person. Surely, being
congenial and kind to others is not
always easy, and at times can even
be quite challenging. For example,
sometimes people with whom we
are dealing may be having a bad
day, or they may have problems
that we are unaware of; however,
we should not allow another per-
son's poor actions to negatively
affect our behavior.

County Council on Aging and
AARP are co-sponsoring a
mature driving class from 8
a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9.
The course will be held at
the Wausau Masonic Lodge in
This eight-hour course was
developed especially for the
senior driver. It is geared
to senior safety needs and
helping compensate for age-
related changes. The National
Safety Council course reviews
basic driving knowledge, new
traffic laws and introduces
techniques to help offset the
effects of the aging process on
driver performance.
This course is approved by
the DHSMV for a three-year
insurance premium reduction.
Course fee is $12 for AARP
members and $14 for non-
members. There is no testing.

County Council on Aging at
