Dirt dispute gets heated at BOCC meeting

CHIPLEY There was a dispute
Thursday at the regular meeting
of the Washington County Board'of
County Commissioners between
Commissioner Joel Pate and Com-
missioner Charles Brock about
Brock allegedly taking about 60
loads of dirt to his son's residence.
Brock said that this was done
according to County policy of'not
hauling dirt taken out of a project
back to a pit to save transporta-


tion costs. Brock said the dirt was
taken from a ditch being cleared.
Brock also accused Pate of taking
"1,000 loads of dirt" to south Wash-
ington County.
The dispute became heated
enough that Howell called a brief
recess for Pate to cool down. Com-
missioners retired to the back
room for about five minutes and
resumed the meeting.

Unemployment

rate goes up in
Washington county
MARIANNA Florida's seasonal-
ly adjusted unemployment rate for
December 2008 is 8.1 percent. This
represents 752,000 jobless out of a
labor force of 9,313,000. The un-
employment rate is 0:7 percentage
point higher that the revised No-
vember rate of 7.4 percent and is
up 3.6 percentage points from the
December 2007 rate. The states
current unemployment rate is 0.9
percentage point higher than the
national unemployment rate of 7.2
percent.
Each of the 5 counties that make
up the Chipola Regional Workforce
Board showed a increase in unem-
ployment. Liberty County had the
lowest unemployment rate for the
state of Florida, with a rate of.5.0
percent followed by Alachua Coun-
ty 5.2 percent and Leon County of
5.4 percent.
Florida's total nonagricultural
employment in December 2008 is
7,784,200, representing a job loss of
255,200, or -3.2 percent compared
to December 2007. This is slower
than the national rate for Decem-
ber which is -1.9 percent. The De-
cember 2008 rate of job loss con-
tinues the trend of over-the-year
declines that began in September

Carswell books donated to Historical Society


PERRY WELLS
Correspondent
Perryl000@bellsouth.net

CHIPLEY Holmes County native Elba
Wilson "Judge" Carswell was a noted his-
torical researcher and author whose top-
ics included histories of both Holmes and
Washington counties, as well as other writ-
ings. At his death in 2001, Carswell left a
treasure of new unsold volumes, as well as
other writings of his and of others.
Now, son David Carswell and daughters
Carol Carswell Bhide and Melody Carswell
have graciously donated and delivered
hundreds of their dad's unsold volumes to
the Washington County Historical Society.
It is their expressed wish that the organi-
zation continue to sell the new books with
proceeds directed toward improving and
enlarging the society's museum.
On March 1, 2008, a life-sized portrait of
Judge Carswell, painted by family friend
Q.R. Barnhill in 1967, was placed in the
county museum by David Carswell and his
sisters. The painting was unveiled by soci-
ety members in an appropriate ceremony
shortly after one room in the museum had
been officially named the E. W "Judge"
Carswell Research Library. At that time,
David announced that the family had
agreed to give all remaining books of their
father to the Historical Society for reselling
as a fundraising effort.
These volumes of historical writings
came to the local museum just in time to.
recognize and commemorate the birthdays
of Judge Carswell and his wife, Catherine
Powell Carswell. He was born on the family
farm in northern Holmes County on Janu-
ary 4, 1916, and died April 11, 2001. Cath-
erine was born January 12, 1926, in Oka-
loosa County. Her family brought her to
Holmes County, where she graduated from
Holmes County High School in April 1943.
She passed away July 25,2007. Both are in-
terred in the Bonifay City Cemetery.
Catherine Carswell taught business
education in the Holmes County School
system until retirement. Her husband con-
sistently and faithfully gave credit to her
for the assistance given in the preparation
and publishing of all of his many books.
Known as a stickler for accuracy, the writer
depended on his wife's typing and clerical
skills, as well as her ability to proofread his
finished manuscripts, thus keeping errors
in the finished product to a minimum.
E. W Carswell'sparents, Robert (Bob)
Carswell and. Navy Victoria Judah Car-
swell, moved the large family in the mid-
1930s from rural Noma in Holmes County
to Santa Rosa County in Milton. He inter-
rupted his schooling and entered the Civil-
ian Conservation Corp (CCC) and was sent
to Louisiana.
He first served in a camp at Arcadia,

La., before transferring to a facility at Ring-
gold. Carswell soon worked his way up and
became an assistant to the director of the
educational program in the facility. This
enabled him to later enroll in the public
schools, where he received his high school
diploma. Later he was allowed to register
for classes at Louisiana Tech in Ruston.
The college studies were interrupted after
the first year when Carswell was inducted
into the U. S. Army.
At both CCC camps, Carswell continued
to publish a newspaper within the confines
of the unit while a high school and a college
student. His paper was called The Rocky
Crest and was the only known publication
within the ranks of the CCC organization.
In later years as Carswell wrote ex-
tensively for newspapers and other publi-
cations, he spoke approvingly of the CCC
program and the excellent work the men
in the units scattered all over the United
States were able to perform improving the
entire country. (A contemporary publica-
tion from the time reported that the work
camps also accomplished their intended


goal of providing an economic boost to the
nation, as enrollees were required to send
at least $22 of the $30 monthly check home
for their families to spend.) Carswell obvi-
ously took great pride in being a member
of the "C's."
In 1985, the well-known respected au-
thor attended a 50th year reunion of his
CCC unit in Arcadia, La. He prepared a
20 page, single-spaced, typewritten essay
about the experiences in the two CCC units
to which he was assigned. Notation in the
material explained that Carswell was al-
lowed to deliver almost all of the lengthy
speech to the hundreds gathered for the
historic event.
.Carswell's military duty in the U.S. Army
took him to the European Theater opera-
tion of World War II. Once again, he found
himself publishing a newspaper, Barracks
Bag Express, as the army unit moved for-
ward as the war progressed.
Upon leaving the army, Carswell re-
turned to complete his studies at Loui-
siana Tech. It was there that he received
the nickname of "Judge" after playing the
part of a judge in a college production. The
name stayed with him throughout his life-
time.
His books include Before Kilroy, outlin-
ing the travels and experiences of military
life. These books are available for sale in
the Carswell publications recently given to
the Historical Society.
Others include A Possum in Every Pot;
He Sold No Shine Before His Time; Holm-
es Valley; Grateful Notes to Gracie; This Is
The Place (Esto, Florida); Choctawhatchee
Anthology Volume I; Remembering Old
Rhoady Anthology Volume II; Commotion
in the Magnolia Tree; Taltes of Grandpa Fit-
zhugh; and Washington, Florida's Twelth
County.
Prices for the books remain the same as
set by the author. They range from $3 for
the small paperbacks to $30 for the popular
500-page hardback Washington, Florida's
Twelth County.
The books are now available at the Wash-
ington County Historical Society Museum,
under the water tower in Chipley. The muse-
um is open each Thursday and Friday from
10:00 aim. until 2:00 p.m. and on the first Sat-
urday of each month from 9 a.m. until noon.
You may call the writer at 850-638-1016 if you
need to come at a different time.
Dorothy Odom, President of the Wash-
ington County Historical Society, along
with the entire membership thanked the
Carswell family for this timely gift of the
writings of Elba Wilson (Judge) Carswell.
"In donating the E. W Carswell books, his
offspring have made a fitting tribute to the
talents of this great writer and a living me-
morial to the legion of information and his-
tory this man has left as his legacy," con-

Let's talk about glue
for a moment. I'm talking
good ol' white Elmer's
glue. You can find this glue
'in just about any school.
Talk about a versatile
adhesive. Its applications
know no bounds. This is
the glue this week's story
revolves around.


It was Bring-A-Parent-
to-School Day. Anybody
who can brings a mom or
dad to class. They have
lunch together, play games
and do crafts. It's like field
day except inside and with
your parents.. Nobody has
to worry about sweating
or losing a race. Just

kids enjoying parents and parents
enjoying their children.
Skip straight to the crafts tables.
Two moms and two children at one
little table are creating macaroni
art. You know how that works,
right? You squeeze out some
glue on the paper or you put
it on your macaroni, then you
create a design. Loads of fun.
(Note: Do your very best on
this task. Your mother will
pull out this creation 20 years
in the future to share with
your fiancee)
So the kids are gluing ON
and creating, gluing and Andre
creating; and when the moms
aren't looking, they taste the
macaroni. And then it happens: The
glue won't come out of the bottle.
Anyone who has ever used white
school glue the bottle with the
orange tip -knows that a clog is
inevitable. I have yet to use a bottle
that hasn't gotten clogged. It's not a
design problem. It's just the nature
of glue to stick to things.
Now we're at this table with a
clogged glue bottle and the making
of macaroni memorabilia has
come to a halt. One of the mothers
looks up for the teacher. "Excuse
me. The glue is all clogged up.
Could we get another bottle or
something?"
The teacher is busy because
her class has doubled in size. Not
only does she have to pacify her
22 students, but also she's taking
care of 22 parents. (Whose idea
was Parents' Day, anyway?) "I'll be
there in just a second. Let me take


care of a few things."
The first mom turns back to her
child, "There, honey. We'll get some
more glue in just a minute or two.
Sit tight."
The other mom looks at the
teacher; she won't be
H coming over for a while. Not
with this circus going on.
S "You know, sweetie," she
L says to her child, "I think
we might be able to take
care of this ourselves. Let's
see."
She finds a scrap piece
E WORD of paper and places it in
ew Hollinger the middle of the table,
unscrews the top from the
bottle and pours some glue
out on the paper. She demonstrates
how to dip one side of the macaroni
into the glue and then place it on
the art paper.
Everybody, the moms and the
kids, get back to work on their art. ,
I like the second mom's solution.
It teaches a better lesson. We've all
been in situations when we've had
the option of waiting for somebody
to happen by and help us out of our
mess or of finding a way to make
things better.
When things get sticky and life
clogs our glue bottles, help might be
a long time coming. Find a way to
make things better.

Letters to the

EDITOR


Help offered

for cat situation

The Sunny Hills Civic Associa-
tion Board was at the BOCC meet-
ing January 22. We heard about Di-
ane Barts' plea. The SHCA is about
finding solutions especially when
the problem directly affects the res-
idents of our community. Animals
don't know to talk or reason nor do
they understand boundaries. This
is a problem, which will become
greater as the county grows. It is
up to the humans to communicate
and come up with solutions. After
the meeting the SHCA Board did
some solution finding. Although we
found many, Margaret found one
a very affordable solution, which
can be implemented by all cat own-
ers or property owners affected by
cats.
There are several very low
priced liquid fence products that
can be purchased online or in a
pet store. The property owner can
spray the perimeter of their prop-
erty and it will deter the animal
from coming in the yard. You can
also use the plant Coleus since cats
hate their odor. Cats are not keen
on the smell of citrus either. So you
could try using orange or lemon
peel in your yard as a deterrent.
Similarly some folks advocate cof-
fee grounds, blood meal, cayenne
pepper, lavender oil, lemon grass
oil, citronella oil, peppermint oil
and eucalyptus oil.
Using a spray-will eliminate the
confusion of trapping a family pet.
You can go' to www.cat-repellant.
info and find the solution best suit-
ed for your needs.
Check the SH Newsletter or
www.sunnyhillsfl.org for more in-
formation.
If Ms. Bart has any more prob-
lems locating the spray, please call
Karen Schoen at 773-2415 and I will
be happy to help her.
Thank you all for your help in
this matter.

Alert on dangerous

drug to cats

In June 2005,.a litter of newborn
kittens was found on the property
of Jackson Correctional Institution.
The staff adopted the kittens. My
girls were so excited to welcome
Jackson into our home. I admit get-
ting up every two hours to feed him
was a little tough, but we made it
through those first hard weeks and
enjoyed several years with him.
Today, I write this in memory of
Jackson, who died needlessly after
treatment for minor cold symp-
toms. He suffered acute kidney fail-
ure following "Metacam" oral doing
prescribed by a local vet.
I have tremendous guilt in not
researching this drug thoroughly
before its use. If publishing this let-
ter can save the lives of other cats,
Jackson's death will not have been
'in vain.
Metacam (Meloxicam) is a non-
steroidal anti-inflammatory for
dogs, farm animals and cats. Cats
are approved for a one-time injec-
tion only (no oral dosing). Jack-
son was prescribed oral dosing. I
received seven doses; however, it
only took four doses before I knew
something was terribly wrong. A
week after his first appointment,
he was in kidney failure. The drug
company Boehringer Ingeheim is
not responsible for misuse. The cat
package insert (which I did not re-
ceive) states:
Cats: a single one-time subcuta-
neous dose, NOT to be followed by
a second dose of Metacam or any
other NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-
inflammatory).
Metacam has a very low safety
margin, meaning there is little dif-
ference between a safe dose and
one that is toxic.
If I could go back to Jan. 2, and
know then what I know now, there
is no doubt in my mind that Jackson
would be alive. His favorite window
sill sits empty and our nights and
weekends seem a little empty as
well.


Please be your pet's advocate.
Ask questions. There are clearly
documental risks associated with
the use of Metacam Oral in cats,
which can lead to kidney failure
and death.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE FLORIDA ARMY NATIONAL GUARD
Troopers from Chipley were among those at the Spur Ride at Fort Rucker.


Spur Ride links guard unit with cavalry heritage


More than 25 soldiers from Chipley Company compete in this year's annual test


By Tech. Sgt. Thomas Kielbasa
Florida National Gua'd Public
Affairs

FORT RUCKER, Ala.- One-
hundred-and-fifty-years
ago they would have been
thundering across a Mitl-
west prairie on sturdy
horses, steel sabers at
their sides and a cloud of
dust trailing behind.
Today the men of a
Florida Army National
Guard Cavalry unit car-
ry M-4 rifles in place of
swords or revolvers and
train for global missions
never even dreamed of by
the old "horse soldiers"
of the nineteenth century.
But despite the modern
updates to this special-
ized scout unit, its soldiers
carry on their U.S. Cavalry
heritage through an an-
nual test known as a "Spur
Ride."
Soldiers from the 1st
Squadron, 153rd Cavalry
Regiment, took part in this
annual spur ride challenge
in the woods of Ft. Rucker
on Jan. 10. Since part of the
cavalry heritage includes
wearing spurs on boots,
the 153rd is keeping that
tradition alive for soldiers
qualified as cavalrymen;

WASHINGTON COUNTY je
CHRISTIAN I

those who passed the chal-
lenge are allowed to wear
silver spurs on their boots
during unit ceremonies.
Soldiers competing in
the event included 28 cav-
alrymen from the Chipley-
based Forward Support
Company.
The event began at 3
a.m. and included a 10-
mile "ruck march," during
which the soldiers stopped
at different stations to com-
plete tasks specific to the
Army scout. Some of these
tasks included: using vi-
sual signaling techniques;
map reading; performing
first aid; employing hand
grenades and mines; and
moving under direct fire.
-Each soldier was re-
quired to get 100 percent
completion at each station
to earn their spurs and
as a testament to the diffi-
cult nature of the spur ride
- only 34 of the 114 who
tested earned the right to
wear their spurs.
The 1st Squadron, 153rd
Cavalry Regiment is com-
prised of more than 400
soldiers in troops based
throughout Florida's Pan-


handle: Headquarters and
Headquarters Troop (Pan-
ama City); Alpha Troop
(Bonifay); Bravo Troop
(Pensacola); Charlie Troop
(Tallahassee); and For-,
ward Support Company
(Chipley).
"This is our second
spur ride, and a lot of our
Soldiers have already ob-
tained their spurs from
going through the ride last
year at Eglin Air Force
Base," explained squad-
ron commander Lt. Col.
Mike Canzoneri. "Those
that have already done
it are walking with those

who haven't...They are
trying to help their fellow
Soldiers get through the
tasks."
Canzoneri explained
that the unit nicknamed
the "Darkhorse Squad-
ron" has been heavily
engaged in training since
it changed from an infan-
try battalion to a cavalry
squadron in late 2007.
"There's a lot of train-
ing going on, and we took


this opportunity to get
back to our 'Cav' heritage
and do the spur ride again"
he said.
Squadron Executive
Officer Maj. Joseph Lyon
explained that tradition
of "earning your spurs"
derived from the early
days of the U.S. Cavalry
troopers, when the newest
members of the unit were
, only allowed to wear spurs
after they proved "their
ability to perform with
their horse and saber." To-
day, he said, the Soldiers.
can either earn a pair of
silver spurs by completing
a "spur ride" or earn gold
spurs by serving as a cav-
alry Soldier in combat.
"Silver and gold spurs
hold a similar relation-
ship for the cavalry as the
Expert Infantry Badge
and the Combat Infantry
Badge hold in the Infan-
try," he noted.
For 1st Sgt. Robert
Ponder of the Tallahassee-


based Charlie Troop, com-
pleting the rigorous spur
ride marked a milestone
in his military career the
47-year-old Soldier cel-
ebrated 30 years of service
in the National Guard on
Jan. 11.
"I really enjoy working
with the Soldiers and lend-
ing my experience," Pon-
der explained.
Because he missed the
spur ride last year, he felt
the need to complete the
event along with the young-
er Soldiers in his troop.
Ponder said he and the
leaders in Charlie Troop
constantly try to mentor
the newer cavalry troopers
who join their unit; that, in
turn, inspires the Soldiers
to be better and let's them
know they are important
and respected.
"Once you come into
the unit it is one big fam-
ily," Ponder explained.
"It's very close-knit; it's
that type of unit."

CHIPLEY Tables were fully load-
ed with peanuts and Cracker Jack
boxes as Chipley High School's
baseball player JoJo Taylor signed
with the Indian River Community
College Pioneers the afternoon of
January 23.
"Not -many people know it, but
the Indian River Community Col-
lege baseball team has won several
state championship games," said
CHS baseball coach Andy Comp-
ton. "For him to go down there is a
big honor for all of us."
Compton explained that it
wasn't as easy as it used to
be to get a scholarship in
baseball.
"He has done everything; he's
gone to all of the events in the
summer and fall and has worked
very hard to get to where he is,"
he said. "It's expensive, but his
parents, Jacque and Joe, really
went out of their way to make sure
he was everywhere he needed to
be with all the support they could
give."
He said if anyone deserved this
chance, it was Taylor.
"I'm going to play outfield on
a full scholarship and that's re-
ally good," said Taylor. "I feel,


really great about getting to play
baseball for Indian River, I'll play
two years and hopefully play for
four years."
He said that he knows there is a
lot of hard work out there for him
and he looks forward to every mo-
ment of it.
"And for those who are wonder-
ing about the peanuts scattered
everywhere and the stacks of
racker Jacks, you must not be
baseball fans," said Jacque. "The
only hint I'll give you is that it's in
a song."
Compton thanked all those who
came to Taylor's signing for their
support.
"I wanted JoJo to know that
we're behind him all of the way and
know he's going to do just fine," he


said.

Christmas spirit prompts tour to reminisce


As January winds down,
it seems the "prattler's"
mind wants to stay in
the Christmas mode of
thinking. Hopefully that
isn't all bad!
For many years at
Christmastime, your
writer made a visit back
to his old neighborhood
of Brackin School/Bethel
Church, later called the
Five Points Community.
It was my purpose to visit
the sick and
shut-in folk
who had
come to
the point of
not having
many
people
come to see
PERRY'S them.
PRATTLE My
Perry Wells first stop
was with
an aunt, Arie Harris
Anderson, my mother's
sister. Whatever gift I had
for her, I knew she would
have her special tea cakes,
made with nuts in them,
ready for Perry. This lady,
who we affectionately
called "aunt sister" is
now residing in a Destin
assisted living facility.
A second delightful
visit in those days was
with Minnie'Levens
McCullough and her
physically impaired son,
J. T. McCullough. Both of
these lovely people have
passed on. Relatives still
live on the home property
on a beautiful drive named
Perry's Court leading off
Yates Settlement Road.
Perry McCullough was
the matriarch of that large
family.
My visits carried me to
the home of Wes Levens
during his later years. He
is the brother of Minnie
McCullough. His wife,
Corene Chestnut Levens,
still resides in the home
on Yates Settlement
Road. Her children and
grandchildren, who live
close by, administer to her
needs.
The Christmas trek in
years gone by took me to
see my aunt and uncle,
Lela Wells Harris and H.
E. (Edward) Harris. She
was my daddy's sister
and he was mama's
brother. Their home was
on Harcus Road, and the
house is now abandoned
after the death of my
kinsmen. Aunt Lela's
birthday was Jan. 15 and
Uncle Edward's was Feb.
27. I always think of their
special days at this time of
the year.
My rounds of visits
ended up at the home


Large turpentine distillery

of my parents, Hugh
and Marie Harris Wells,
which was the place of
my upbringing. My gift to
them for many years was
a cured ham from Stone's
Chipley Packing, which
they enjoyed, as well as
sharing with some "of the
offspring who would drop
in unannounced not only at
Christmas but any time of
the year.
As mentioned in earlier
columns, our son, Grant
Wells, and his family were
with us for Christmas,
coming from their Houston
home.
All of our sons hold a
special affection for the
old Wells home place, as
well as the other points
of interest in the area
where their dad grew
up, attended school and
church, and had many
experiences in life that the
offspring hold to dearly as
historical, as well as their
heritage.
Timothy, Grant and
Gordon, No. 1, 2 and 4 in
the sequence of the four
boys, suggested that we
load up the grandchildren
and make a tour of the
points of interest in the
area where granddaddy
was reared. Emory, No.
3 son, had returned to his
rural mail carrier job and
was unable to make the
visit to the area almost
sacred to memories of the
past.

Janice Daniel, housekeeping staff, environmental services department.


Turpentine harvesting operation


Deanna, Mac and Virginia
excitedly joined their
granddaddy and their.
fathers for the journey
into the past. Granddaddy
became the tour guide as
we reached each point of
interest. Each grandchild
would have been equally
excited just to have been
riding in the open pickup
truck body after we
reached the rural roads.
On Cook Mill Pond
Road, just off Highway 280,
our party was shown the
spot where a brush arbor
church meeting place was
set up possibly in the late
1930s. Later, a building was
erected a short distance to


the west and near where
Loriene Cook Koiser's
home is now situated. The
Rev. Green Henderson
was pastor for this church.
Later, his brother, the Rev.
Dallas Henderson, was
a beloved minister in a
Caryville church.
Our next highlight was
the site of Cook's Grist
Mill, where the "prattler"
spent many pleasant times
taking corn to the mill for
grinding into meal, as well
as fishing and camping
at the old mill pond and
mill house and enjoying
an old country party. The
Cook girls, Lessie, Leoma,
Lillian and Loriene, all


cousins of mine, had a
reputation for hosting
these delightful events.
The tour guide also
pointed out the location of
the Cook turpentine still,
long since faded from the
landscape. Vivid in my
memory is picking up the
accumulation of chunks
of tar from the old mill
for use as "starter" in
building a fire in the home
fireplace.
Our group next
stopped at the old Pipkin
homestead on Pipkin
Road, which also is the
county line dividing
Holmes and Washington
counties. The old log


VERNON Vernon High
School recently received
recognition as one of Amer-
ica's best high schools.
U.S. News & World Report
awarded VHS the bronze
medal for its performance
on a series of measures.
These criteria include
standardized test perfor-
mance and proficiency
rates of all students, includ-
ing the least advantaged.
VHS also achieved this
award in 2008, evidence
that a continual commit-
ment to educational supe-
riority is ever present.
In addition, the Uni-
versity of North Florida
recently extended their
congratulations to Vernon
High School for its bronze


medal award. John Yanc-
ey, directions of admissions
for University of North
Florida, cited Vernon High
School's educational ef-
forts and implored Yellow
Jacket graduates to attend
the UNF campus.
The administration, fac-
ulty, staff and students of
Vernon High School are ex-
tremely proud of this great
distinction. Hard work,
dedication and a sense of
continuous improvement
by all parties have made
this award possible. In the
coming years, they hope
to continue their quest to
cultivate and produce stu-
dents who are positive con-
tributors to the world in
which they live and work.


house, enshrouded by an
aged farm building, can
still be seen. Another item
in view is the dip vat for
dipping cattle, thus ridding
them of ticks, still intact on
the Pipkin property.
Our drive through the
countryside took us to the
site of old Brackin School
where the tour guide
attended school through
the seventh grade. A dip
vat was in use on that
property for years but has
now been removed. The
old school house is no
longer in existence.
We then drove to Gum
Creek and the younger
set was shown the old
swimming hole where
the grandfather learned
to swim while the creek
was swollen from recent
floods and the water was
extremely swift. Now
the stream flows only in
extremely wet seasons,
unfortunately, the creek
bed had been used for
disposing of household
garbage before governing
bodies clamped down on
such illegal and harmful
activities.
We drove by Bethel
Primitive Baptist Church,
established May 7, 1887,
with founding members
being kinsmen of the
writer. The congregation is
still active and meets each
Sunday. The adjoining
cemetery is the burying
ground for many of the
Wells ancestors.
Down the hill from
Bethel Church, all that
remains of the old Brackin
home are two chimneys
that tower into the sky as
all the structure is now
removed and the home site
cleared with a backhoe.
Our final stop was the
Wells home place. All the
grandchildren have fond
memories of this landmark
location. Some recall
their great-grandfather,
Hugh Wells, but none
on the tour remember
great-grandmother Marie.
They all are aware that
she was "granny ree" to
her grandchildren. They
all wanted to look on the
scene of the missing piano
and .the closed fireplace.
After a hurried jaunt
through the spacious
country home, they were
ready to return to the
comforts of "Grandma
Hester's" home where they
knew more delicious food
would be awaiting them.
Maybe next week the
writer will be ready to
conclude that Christmas
has passed and move on to
other subject matter.
See you all next week.

SPORTS BRIEFS -


Adult baseball league
meeting to be held
BRISTOL Efforts are underway to
develop a Big Bend Semi-pro Adult
Baseball League in the Big Bend
area of north Florida. The proposed
league will consist of two divisions,
eastern and western, covering six
counties immediately east of Apala-
chicola River and six counties west
of the River.
Teams, a minimum of four and
a maximum of six, are now being
developed. The next league-wide
meeting is scheduled for Saturday,
Feb. 14, at 10 a.m. at the Apalachee
Restaurant in Bristol on Hwy 20.
For more information, call Harold
W. Bailey, 229-662-2066 or 850-524-
2151 (cell).

Information is sought for
bald eagle .
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) is
appealing to the public for informa-
tion about a bald eagle found dead
Wednesday afternoon in a barrow pit
in the Apalachicola National Forest.
FWC Law Enforcement Officer
Charlie Mallow found the immature
eagle in a pit off Forest Road 13 in
Wakulla County. Someone with a ri-
fle apparently shot the bird once.
'"At this point, we don't know if the
eagle was shot there or somewhere
else and dumped in the pit," said in-
vestigator Charlie Chafin. "Officers
interviewed one person who was at
the burrow pit Tuesday afternoon,
and he said the bird wasn't there."
Both the FWC, through the Wild-
life Alert Reward Program, and the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS)
are offering rewards for informa-
tion leading to the arrest of those
involved. The FWS requires both an
arrest and a conviction before it can
pay a reward.
The Wildlife Alert hotline number
is 888-404-3922.


After working the early morning
hours, officers Larry Morris, and
Warren Walsingham stopped at a
convenience store and saw a small
hoof of a deer sticking up from the
bed of a pickup truck exiting the
store. An inspection revealed a sub-
ject in possession of an antler-less
deer. The officers issued a citation
for possession of antler-less deer.
Officers Walsingham and Mark
Clements responded to assist a
Washington County Sheriff's depu-
ty who stopped two young men for
shooting a doe deer along a roadway
with a .22 caliber rifle. The deputy
handed the case over to the officers
who in turn'nvestigated and charged
the two subjects with taking antler-
less deer during closed season and
for taking deer by illegal methods.
Witnesses observed the pair shoot
the deer repeatedly on a ditch bank.

, FWC responds to deer
complaint
Officer Jim Brooks responded to
a complaint of a deer shot at night in
a farmer's yard.
The investigation continued well
in to the morning and is still open.
Officer Brooks receipted the trophy
8-point buck to the landowner for
processing after documenting the
evidence.
Officer Brooks received several
complaints regarding dumping of il-
legal deer carcasses in Holmes Coun-
ty. On one complaint near Ponce de
Leon, Officer Brooks was supplied a
suspect vehicle description. Officer
Brooks passed the suspect vehicle
on a dirt road about an hour and a
half later and observed other indica-
tive signs supplied to him and sub-
sequently stopped the truck. The
suspect confessed and took Officer
Brooks back to the bridge where the
carcass was dumped on the right-
of-way. Officer Brooks charged the
subject with a litter law violation.

The history of Arbor Day

The idea for Arbor Day originally came
trom Nebraska. according to www\ arborday
ore. A \isit to Nebraska today \wouldn't dis-
close that the state was once a treeless plain.
Yet it w\as the lack of trees there that led to
the founding of Arbor Day in the 18S111i.
Among pioneers moving into the Nebras-
ka Territory in 1854- was J Sterling Morton
from Detroit He and his wife were lovers
ot nature, and the home they established in
Nebraska was quickly planted with
trees, shrubs and flowers.
M\lorton was a journalist and soon
became editor of Nebraska's first
newspaper Gi\en that forum, he
spread agricultural information and
his enthusiasm tor trees to an equally
enthusiastic audience
His tellow pioneers missed their
ING trees But, more importantly. tree'-
NX were needed as windbreaks to keep
Ai,.i soil in place. lor tuel and building ma-
terials, and for shade trom the hot
sutill
Morton not only advocated tree
planting by individuals in his articles and
editorials, but he also encouraged civ1c or-
ganizations and groups to join in His promi-
nence in the area increased, and lie became
secretary of the Nebraska Territory, winch
provided another opportunity to stress the
value ot tree'
On January -4, 1872, Morton tir-t pro-
posed a tree-planting holiday to be called
"Arbol Day" at a mneetlll' ol lthe State Bo.i'd
of Agriculture The date- was 'et for .April 111.
1872 Prizes were ,'Htered to (untie-, and

Why go to church?


A churchgoer wrote a let-
ter to the editor of the news-
paper and complained that
it made no sense to go to ,.
church every" Sunday. "I've
gone for 30 years now," he
wrote, "and in that time I
have heard something like
3,000 sermons. But for the LET
life of me I can't remember a LIGHi
single one of them. So I think Wes
I'm wasting my time and the
preachers are wasting theirs by giv-
ing sermons at all."
This started a real controversy in
the "Letters to the Editor" column,
much to the delight of the editor. It
went on for weeks until someone
wrote this clincher: "I've been mar-
ried for 30 years now. In that time my
wife has cooked some 32,000 meals.
But for the life of me, I cannot recall
what the menu was for a single one
of those meals. But I do know this:
they all nourished me and gave me
the strength I needed to do my work.
If my wife had not given me those,
meals, I would be dead today." No
comments were made on the ser-
mon contents any more.
"And every priest stands minis-
tering daily and offering repeatedly
the same sacrifices, which can never
take away sins. But this Man, after
He had offered one sacrifice for sins
forever, sat down at the right hand of
God, from that time waiting till His
enemies are made His footstool. For
by one offering He has perfected for-
ever those who are being sanctified.
But the Holy Spirit also witnesses
to us; for after He had said before,
"This is the covenant that I will
make with them -after those days,
says the Lord: I will put My laws into
their hearts, and in their minds I will
write them," then He adds, "Their
sins and their lawless deeds I will
remember. no more." Now where
there is remission of these, there is
no longer an offering for sin. There-


ITS
sW


fore, brethren, having bold-
ness to enter the Holiest by
the blood of Jesus, by a new
and living way which He con-
secrated for us, through the
veil, that is, His flesh, and
having a High Priest over
the house of God, let us draw
OUR near with a true heart in full
SHINE assurance of faith, having
Vebb our hearts sprinkled from an
evil conscience and our bod-
ies washed with pure water. Let us
hold fast the confession of our hope
without wavering, for He who prom-
ised is faithful..And let us consider
one another in order to stir up love
and good works, not forsaking the
assembling of ourselves together, as
is the manner of some, but exhorting
one another, and so much the more
as you see the Day approaching. For
if we sin willfully after we have re-
ceived the knowledge of the truth,
there no longer remains a sacrifice
for sins, but a certain fearful expec-
tation of judgment, and fiery indig-
nation which will devour the adver-
saries." (Heb 10:11-27 NKJ)
God has provided us the oppor-
tunity to worship Him each week.
These opportunities give us a chance
to be refreshed spiritually by refo-
cusing our life and receiving the en-
couragement we receive from those
of like precious faith. To be honest, I
can hardly remember what I preach
from week to week, but I believe that
these times of worship and instruc-
tion have increased and renewed
my faith. God desires a people who
desire a relationship with Him, a
people after His likeness and for His
own possession. May we all have a
desire to spend more time with God
and His people.

Money, money, money, it's all about the money


We want it, we want it now er recessions before that. We are
and we want the government actually in very good shape, and
to bail us all out. The economy will be if the government will get

anymore. The media and business, and start work-
politicians keep telling us ing on government prob-
how bad things are, that lems.
we must borrow money We seem to Ifave
as a nation and give it to forgotten that there is
large corporations that actually nothing free

could afford. Then they wonder 22:7) and we the people have no
why their products are being idea who actually owns and pulls
stock piled, and they are losing the controlling strings at this
money, time because of the nation's in-
Wearebeingtoldmanythings; debtedness, but (we) the people
such as our new President will have also sold ourselves into the
fix it all with his socialist ideas same slavery of debt. With that I
if we just trust him. Though, the would like to share with you, that
things that everyone is expecting if your hope is in one man or a
to happen are not in the power party of politicians rescuing you
of the president or any politician from your financial woes, you
as long as we remain a democ- have false hopes that will de-
racy. On the other hand we are stroy you. America will remain
not being told that the recession in trouble until (we) as a nation
we are now experiencing is any- and individuals stop looking and
where near the recession that hoping we are going to find the
was experienced in 1982 under end of the rainbow and the pot
President Jimmy Carter or oth- of gold, and start managing our


money and desires by stopping it
from controlling us.
Through the years I have
studied much on the economy
and financial management. I've
studied the works of Ron and
Judy Blue, Larry Burkett, James
L. Parris and others. But last
year I began to read and listen to
Dave Ramsey. The'Lord seems
to have blessed Dave with a gift'
that puts all these together so
that the average person can lis-
ten and then put these principals
to work by using some of the best
money management practices
that I have ever witnessed. And
they seem to work for anybody,
from the poorest to the richest
who want to control their money
instead of allowing it to continue
to control them.
Dave Ramsey has put all
these teachings of his in a thir-
teen-week study he calls "Finan-
cial Peace University." To tell
you the truth I have found it to be
a bargain at any cost, but he has
fixed it so that churches can offer
it for a lot less than most couples
spend on a weekend date.
To find a church near you that
is offering Financial Peace Uni-
versity just check out Dave's Web

Gully Springs Baptist Church
is offering a free introductory
class Thursday, Feb. 5, at 6:30
pm. Others in this area offering
the classes are Saint Joseph the
Worker in Chipley on Sunday,
Feb. 1, at 1 pm; On Sunday, Feb.
8, Greater Faith Christian Cen-
ter in Lynn Haven and North
Star Church in Panama City are
beginning classes, as are many
more.
Please know this, neither the
government nor anyone else put
you in the financial situation you
are in, and no one can get you
out of it except yourself and your
desire to be debt free so that you
can live like no one else, and en-
joy life. *
If your marriage is struggling
right now, ninety percent of the
problem probably began with
a bad financial situation, which
you both created, and Financial
Peace University will help you
both working together begin to
turn things around.
As we look at the problems
in most marriages and the
problems this great nation is in
proves that God truly knows us
and knows that which we need
to understand, and that is why


He wrote us some wonderful
letters to warn us and guide us
such as 1 Timothy 6:6-10, "Now
godliness with contentment
is great gain. For we brought
nothing into this world, and it
is certain we can carry nothing
out. And having food and cloth-
ing, with these we shall be con-
tent. But those who desire to be
rich fall into temptation and a
snare, and into many foolish and
harmful lusts, which drown men
in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is a root of
all kinds of evil, for which some
have strayed from the, faith in
their, greediness, and pierced
themselves through with many
sorrows" (NKJV). Money is not
the problem. It's the heart and
intentions of the person that is
the problem, which should lead
you to ask, "Who is in control,
the money or me?" If it's not
you, it should be, and it can be.

Baptist College graduate melts boundaries


BCF Alum Rodney and Beverly Peavy with their
four children, Christian, Carlos, Tosha, and
Joshua.


Rodney Peavy graduated from
The Baptist College of Florida in 1998
with a B.A. in Christian Education,
and is currently serving as the pas-
tor of Stone Creek Baptist Church in
Dry Branch, Ga., just East of Macon.
Peavy became pastor of the church
in 2007, and in less than two years
God has radically changed the lives
of the Dry Branch community.
Peavy and his wife, Beverly, ad-
opted four children: nine-year-old
Christian, eight-year-old Carlos,
six-year-old Tosha, and one-year-old
Joshua. The family is somewhat of
an exception to the so-called "norm"
as Peavy, Beverly and Joshua are
caucasian, and Christian, Carlos,
and Tosha are bi-racial. Peavy and
his wife have unconditionally ac-
cepted the kids into their family


stating, "What we have in common
is much more important than our
differences."
The diversity of Peavy's fam-
ily has monumentally shaped and
changed his view of ethnic boundar-
ies.
The Stone Creek Baptist Church
was established in 1808, and as
stated in "A History of Stone Creek
Baptist Church" by Billy Walker
Jones, each member's slave was to
be added to the'congregation. The
Black members of Stone Creek,
however, wanted to establish their
own church, and in 1874 this dream
was realized about a quarter mile
down the Riggins Mill Road.
After a devastating F2 tornado
demolished the Stone Creek Bap-
tist Church 1874 on Mother's Day


of 2007, Peavy, with no concern for
the color of skin, approached Stone
Creek 1874 pastor Dexter Jordan,
offering his fellowship hall as a
short-term meeting place for a few
months. Suddenly a 134 year-old
wall between two churches melted
away, as members of each congrega-
tion fellowshipped with one another,
praising and singing as children of
God.
. As Peavy noted, "We realized
we had more in common than we
thought. Those people weren't just
the African American church down
the street. They are our friends
and neighbors and co-workers."
Peavy continues to glorify God with
four children serving as vessels of
change, reuniting two churches un-
der a common purpose.

Is Is So Easy to Criticize

Offering constructive criticism to others can be
beneficial, but only if the other person is receptive
to our comments. In teaching situations or during
on-the-job training, constructive criticism is usually
necessary to instruct and help a person develop a
trade or vocation. However, correcting someone,even
in a kind or skillful manner, can be very challenging,
since we are never sure how the individual may
react. Many friendships and families
have been destroyed because
someone has been overly critical of
another person's words or actions.
Se \ Knowing when we should offer
.\ our comments can also be
B ) ^ \ difficult, and we should be fairly
certain that our comments are
Truthful and necessary. It often
seems so easy to criticize others
because we mistakenly believe
that we are without fault or are such
experts on most everything. The Bible
tells us that we look at the speck in our brother's
eye, but we pay no attention to the log in our own
(Luke 6:41). Faultfinding and being overly critical of
others, especially behind their backs, are wrong and
can become habit-forming. However, kind words are
good for the soul and help to build a person up.

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But a wise man listens to advice.
-R.S.V. Proverbs 12:15
