SALES TAX from page A1 COUNCIL from page A1 Special to the News The Kiwanis Club of Chipley lunch meet ing on Aug. 2 was focused on drug-related issues throughout Washington County as Sheriff Bobby Haddock, accompanied by Chief Deputy John Braxton and Sheriffs Assistant PIO Andrea Gainey, updated Ki wanians about new drug threats from syn thetic marijuana and synthetic meth that has been made available through retailers in Washington County. Haddock reported that in spite of recent law changes making the distribution and possession of the synthetic marijuana and meth a crime, it still can be found at retail ers who are not heeding the most recent laws passed during the 2011 legislative session. The Drug Task Force, which is a multi-agency organization, is now appre hending the distributors and retailers who continue to sell these illegal substances in Washington County. What makes both products unique is the packaging and mar keting through retail outlets in a manner that appeals and specically targets the youth of the county. The products are rep resented as being legal and are in forms that do not contain the ingredients found in traditional marijuana and meth, so the synthetic products are harder to detect. Braxton handed out samples of the drugs seized locally so club members could see rsthand the types of packaging that is attractive to young people. Captain Braxton was also careful to recover all the samples by the end of the presentation. Danger to users of the synthetic prod ucts is greater than traditional illegal drugs as the synthetics are much more powerful and the potency varies greatly from pack age to package. Haddock said these drugs amplify the users state of mind exponen tially, so if a person is already agitated, the result can be behavior that is uncontrol lable. There have been local cases where individuals become physically violent and required maximum restraint. So far, only seven states have made synthetic drugs il legal, with Florida one of the rst states to take such action. This presents a problem locally with distributors shipping drugs from states where they are legal into Flor ida without retailers recognizing the law changes in Florida make the retail display and sale illegal. Haddock said synthetic drugs have been misrepresented as a safer alterna tive to traditional drugs. He also reported that natural marijuana grown with mod ern techniques causes much stronger re sults than marijuana associated with the 1970s.

WANT MORE? Find us online at chipleypaper.com friend us on F acebook or tweet us @ W C N H C T My 22-year association with WBGC, Chipleys longtime radio station, has caused inquires down through the years as to my ownership of the business. My service there was limited to the Saturday broadcast, Bluegrass Express, which enjoyed a wide and loyal audience. I still miss the many friends made from the radio program. The station has been silent for more than a year. A few weeks ago, a call came to me after a citizen noticed a poster attached to the gatepost at the South Boulevard entrance to the radio station. It was an easy matter for me to drive by the location and observe the prominent sign reading WAAZ-FM 104.7 THE GOOD COUNTRY. The prattler has listened to this station for several years and recognizes it as a powerful country music radio station in Crestview. I again checked WBGC, 1240 AM, and heard no signal, indicating the station remains off the air. Many locals seem interested in the possibility of the station one day returning to a full broadcast format. One of these people, who played a part in the stations success during the years WBGC ourished in Chipley and the tricounty area, is Gerald Pee Wee Rogers. This local businessman conducted an early morning sports and shing broadcast on the station from 19741987. All of his part-time employment was when the facility was owned by Homer L. Big Sarge Rhoden Sr. After Pee Wee left the station, his son-in law, Richard C. Ricky Miller, lled the slot of broadcasting sports items on WBGC. A recent visit with Pee Wee Rogers lled in some of the blanks that the writer did not know about his life. I did know that he had Wewahitchka connections and that he was personally acquainted with twin brothers Ned and Ted Brown, who grew up there. The prattler knew Ted Brown as a fellow employee at Sears, Roebuck and Co. in Panama City and later called him Brother Ted Brown when we were both members of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church. Pee Wee Rogers was born in Gulf County on Sept. 29, 1931. His parents were Robert Bob Rogers and Margaret Maggie Arthur Rogers. When the parents moved to Chipley in 1941 to operate the Vance Theater, Pee Wee was allowed to remain in Gulf County with his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Arthur, and continue school there. In 1947, he heeded the desires of his parents to join them in Chipley, where he completed high school. He graduated in 1951 and soon entered the Air Force, which became a career for him. On April 13, 1952, Gerald Rogers and his Chipley High School sweetheart, Kathleen Canum, were married in Chipley. Kathleen was able to accompany her husband on many of his military assignments. Along the way, four children, Donna, Debbie, Linda and Mike, were born to the couple. In 1971, the Rogers family returned to Washington County, where the four children completed Chipley High School. Pee Wee went to work selling Woodmen of The World Insurance, with Kathleen opening and operating Kathleens Salon. In 1974, Gerald Rogers opened Rogers Insurance Agency in Chipley. Soon, his daughter Donna and her husband, Ricky Miller, came on board as employees of the rm. In 1993, at the age of 62, Rogers elected to retire from the business, passing it on to the son-in-law and daughter. The business continues at 1396 Jackson Ave. in Chipley with Craig Miller, the son of Donna and Ricky, joining the agency a few years ago. He is an integral part of the operation. Kathleen Canum Rogers sold her beauty shop business soon after her husbands retirement, and the couple enjoyed traveling in their motor home, attending Florida State games and other places of interest. In 2006, Gerald experienced a serious stroke, which affected his ability to walk and has restricted the activities of this otherwise active man. He has adjusted to moving himself around in his mechanized wheelchair, attends therapy sessions three times weekly and does his own physical exercises at home. This man, who proudly admits that Chipley is his adopted and well-loved home, has a talent for writing poetry, which he has expanded on during recent years. Among his poems is one written and dedicated to the memory of Chipley resident Erin Gilbert. It is titled Friendship. A second one honors the life of another well-known Chipley lady and is titled One Hundred Years of Living. It is dedicated to Mildred Farrior Campbell, who passed away after achieving more than 100 years of living. Rogers granddaughter, Erika Leigh Miller, prepared a booklet of his poems in 2007, and one contained in the volume is a tribute to his home, to Chipley, titled My Town, which concludes with these lines: Sure my town is just a little place, its not big at all; but with all the blessing weve got, its more big than it is small. The poetry seemingly reects Gerald Pee Wee Rogers attitude toward life as he works hard to once again achieve the agility which has brought him along a wonderful path thus far. He remains upbeat and cheerful, with a positive outlook for the future. His parting words to me were, Judge, maybe one day we will see our local radio station return to the airways and once again we can have the likes of Harvey Ethridge, Big Sarge, Gerald Rogers and Perry Wells gracing the broadcast format.

Have you ever been on the receiving end of the layoff speech? As one who has been on both sides of it, I can tell you it isnt happy for anyone, least of all the one going home jobless. When ve Washington County employees got their speech a week ago Friday, they were told by a most sincere County Administrator Steve Joiner, I hope and pray we can bring you back soon. I believe he was honest in this comment after speaking with him personally and at length about the situation with the countys budget. But really, coming back soon for these employees ranks pretty high on the fat chance meter. See, the layoffs are in response to action by the county commission to continue the tax rate unchanged, leaving about a $1 million hole in a $36 million annual budget. So return for these employees will depend on someone retiring unexpectedly, dying or getting hurt. Any of those could happen, of course, but its hard to convince your mortgage holder youll be rushed back to work on such a contingency. OK. Its bad and not likely to get any better. You get the drift. But as your newspaper editor, its my job to ask tough questions sometimes, like: How did we get here? And there are satisfying (if not happy) answers to my questions so far. First, Commission Chairman Joel Pate took me back in time to 2005. Washington County had a budget surplus of around $2 million. Spending was pretty free in those days before both the state and federal government shut off many of the money valves that have now dried up. In fact, the chairman describes the countys ofcial budgetary attitude as spending like a drunken sailor. All this heady scal lack of restraint became a key part of the next round of commission elections, Pate and Joiner both told me, leaving county leaders with the current no new taxes philosophy. And frankly, Washington County isnt alone in this approach in the era of the Tea Party and pervasive nancial restraint. We will leave the politics and relative merits of that to another time. Anyway, it was this change in attitude and power structure more than ve years ago that gets us to current county staff reductions. And to be fair, layoffs are not the rst or only strategy Washington County is employing to cut its spending (a majority of which is payroll, by the way). First, there is a formal hiring freeze in effect. Second, all positions vacated for any reason (absent, perhaps, public safety and basic supervisory personnel) are left unlled. Joiner points out that several more layoffs would be necessary had there not been some retirements and two employees red for cause along the way. Pate points to longer grass in county parks as a telling sign of cutback. To be clear, the ve laid off will be welcomed back with open arms as valued employees if opportunities open up. Its just unlikely there will be. Finally, there are two rumors I worked on I need to discuss at least briey. Rumor 1: The commissioners are not cutting their budgets. Well, this one is a stumper in a couple of ways. First, with a $1 million shortfall in a $36 million budget, cuts will be broad and across all programs. Second, the county budget just is not set up to give each commissioner a spending pot. That went away after 2005, according to Joiner and Pate. Rumor 2: There is a list of remaining employees to be laid off. Nope, Joiner says. With other costcutting measures, hes as hopeful as he can be there will be no further layoffs, so he sees no utility in making a list. Look, this is not happy, and it is not good (least of all for those laid off), but it is understandable. Feel free to let me hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bluegrass Express brings station questions Dear Editor, Regarding the Washington County Commission meeting held in Ebro on July 28, and specically the Crystal Lake presentation concerning the Sikes Sand Pits long going environmental and code violations (Sand pit discussion causes stir, Aug. 3 edition), I have some comments and observations. First of all, I am a Crystal Lake property owner and attended this meeting. Mr. Jesse Sasser did a brilliant job with the slide show. It was obvious that much time and money had been spent in proving Mr. Sikes was in violation. I do not know if Mr. Sasser had been alerted to the 15-minute time limit or if he found this out upon arrival, but even if this was the case, I wondered why such an important issue would have such a limited time restraint. Anyway, when the 15 minutes expired and Mr. Joel Pate, chairman of the board, interrupted Mr. Sasser by saying, Your 15 minutes are up; have a seat!, I was shocked! Mr. Sasser politely asked for four more minutes to nish the slide show. This was denied more than one time with the rest of the board looking on. The board attorney intervened by saying that Mr. Pate could allow the time limit be extended if he chose, and once more, Mr. Pate denied this. The audience became unruly, demanding that this group of taxpayers be heard, but to no avail. The point I am making is that this is, according to the tax roll, a group of 206 Crystal Lake property owners who pay taxes in the amount of $347,685.38 and were treated by Joel Pate as if we all lived in Bay, Jackson, Leon, Holmes, Houston and all other places in the country that he represents and that we had no rights as Washington County property owners. The Crystal Lake roads are not paved, and to my knowledge, there are no other services offered be the county to the Crystal Lake community, except help from the sheriffs department. I personally do not appreciate the attitude taken by Joel Pate. I have known him all my life and am truly disappointed in the position he took at this meeting. Unfortunately, I pay taxes in Washington County but reside in Bay County; thus I cant vote in Washington County. Ill have to leave the next election in the good hands of WC citizens. Good luck!

The calls came from homeowners or security guards who thought they had prowlers. Call after call turned out to be opossums, she said. Bale still gets calls about opossums, but these days its as a wildlife rehabilitator and president of the Opossum Society of the United States, which has about 300 members. North America is home to millions of Virginia opossums, but for a creature so commonly found in backyards and along roadways, this nocturnal marsupial is the subject of many myths and misperceptions. Colloquially, Americans sometimes use the terms opossum and possum interchangeably. But while Virginia opossums are native to North America, possums are native to Australia. The opossums relatives include other marsupials from Down Under kangaroos, koalas and wombats. But because opossums look like rats, they dont share the other mammals popularity. Its the furless tail that sets people off, said Barbara Missy Runyan, a wildlife rehabilitator who runs Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center in Hunter, N.Y., and who thinks opossums are adorable. But they dont hang by their tails, Bale said. Their tails cant support their weight. Poor eyesight is why so many are hit by cars. The opossum does 90 percent of its searching through scent, said Runyan. They can only see six to eight inches in front of them. They cant smell a car coming. And since they are nocturnal, they cross the road when its dark. They can make hissing, sneezing or growling sounds, sometimes described as a purr. They arent likely to dig holes in your yard because they have delicate paws with nails that can be easily ripped out, Bale said. Despite 50 razor-sharp teeth, opossums are generally docile and prefer to avoid confrontation, said Kim Ashby, a wildlife rehabilitator in Raleigh, N.C. They can bite, but they prefer playing possum. If confronted, they fall over, start drooling, emit a musky odor that smells like decay, induce diarrhea and slow their breathing so it appears to have stopped, said Ashby, a retired emergency room nurse. Most predators will walk away because they wont eat anything that has been dead for a while. They eat cockroaches, crickets and beetles, snakes, slugs, mice, rats, rotting fruit, human garbage, dead animals and small reptiles. Bale calls them natures little sanitation engineers. They like dog and cat food too. If people are feeding dogs and cats outside, they are probably feeding their local possums as well, Ashby said. Baby opossums start out the size of raisins. A mother can have one to three litters a year. A grown female will weigh between 7 and 9 pounds and a male up to 12 pounds. They are solitary, transient creatures, seldom staying in one place more than a few days. Babies stay with the mother for 4 to ve months. If they fall off while riding on her back or get left behind when the mother takes off, they are on their own because the mother wont come back, Bale said. Rabies in opossums is rare because their body temperature is too low to support the virus. They are good climbers, using their tail for balance, but they can fall into swimming pools when trying to get a drink and into trash cans when going after food. Ashby says some people set out to kill opossums. She was recently called for one that had been stomped to death and nursed another that had been beaten with a baseball bat. A call to animal control is a better option, she said. But you can also take steps to keep them out of your yard. Cover pools and trash cans, remove food and water sources, keep trees and shrubs clear of fences and dont let fruit from trees rot on the ground. A few companies sell repellent granules made of fox urine that you shake on the ground. Manufacturers say the product, $15 to $20, is 100 percent organic so it wont hurt your cat or dog. While dogs and cars are the possums main predators in cities, foxes, coyotes, bobcats, owls and other animals prey on them in the wild. Bale works with 10 backyard rehabilitators in Southern California. They get about 1,000 calls a year to help with orphaned opossums. Besides those she has accepted in upstate New York, Runyan has found 14 babies this year. Ashby and fellow members of Wildlife Welfare, Inc. in the Raleigh area have taken in about 150 opossums this year. Bale and her fellow volunteers save about 85 percent of those they take in, she said. Opossums are very resilient, Bale said. Their life expectancy is around two years in the wild and up to seven years in captivity. Rehabilitators release them once they are healed or old enough to make it alone. Release is the hardest part, because you dont know if they will live that long, Bale said, but its also the nicest part because you got them that far.

OUTD OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to email@example.com A Section I heard Winston Chester make a statement that just about sums up the outdoor opportunities in this area. He said we had had one of the most successful snapper seasons we have ever had in modern times, and now we are experiencing one of the best scallop seasons ever. We still have some people grumbling because the snapper season was too short, but more people caught more big red snapper this year than ever. There will be a Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council meeting this month in Texas and word is it might discuss a fall snapper season. We can only wait. This heat is making shing almost impossible unless you go at night, and then the temperature is in the 80s. Amberjack season came in last week, but again, going in the middle of the day is difcult to do. Speckled trout: The bite is good if you know where to go. The boys I know who do are catching some nice ones on live bait. Their favorite bait is pigsh. Im not really sure what the attraction is with pigsh, but I know it cant be their appearance. A choffer is a much better looking, but pigsh is what they prefer. Speckled trout shermen will tell you it is the grunting sound the pigsh makes. If that is true, someone should be able to fabricate a pigsh call sort of like a deer grunt. Probably would work about as well. A good bet for speckled trout is to go to St. Joe Bay on the west bank and sight sh for them. I would cast net some menhaden or small choffers and either get someone to pole the boat or use an electric motor and ease along as slowly as possible. If the water is clear, stay in about three feet and you will see them long before they see you. Simply ip a menhaden a few feet on the other side of the sh as to not scare it and ease it in front of his nose and hold on. Works every time.

SUBMIT YOUR HUNTING AND F I S HING PHOTO S TO NEW S @CHIPLEYPAPER.COM Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer firstname.lastname@example.org SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM Zane Plumb caught and released a red snapper during a recent trip near Destin. By Frank Sargeant email@example.com Flounder look like a sh not quite nished. They appear to be a standardissue critter split in half, with a at, featureless underside thats good for nothing but resting on bottom. And indeed, thats just how a ounder operates. Its the beauty of its odd design, and of all in the atsh family. Flounder are a Panhandle favorite when it comes to table sh. What they lack in ghting ability, they make up in availability; get in the right spot at the right time and capturing the legal limit of 10 sh 12 inches or more is possible in an hour. Of course, nding that right spot is the issue, as in all shing. Panhandle ounder move around with the seasons; from now through the rst severe cold front in November or December, the easiest place to nd them likely is to be inside the major bays, in the lower end of the larger rivers and around the passes to the Gulf. When it gets cold, theres a rapid migration seaward, with thousands of the atsh settling on reefs and hard bottom off the beaches. And the passes can produce great action when the sh are outbound in fall and inbound in spring. Bob Sykes Cut through St. George Island is one of the most famous ounder spots in Florida. The jetties at Destin Inlet can be great, as well. Wherever you sh for ounder, the best way to catch them is with live baits; shrimp, killish (bull minnows), small sardines or nger mullet. These can be free-lined around oyster bars and reedy shorelines, or weighted and shed in potholes in places such as Destin Harbor or holes and drops in east St. Andrew Bay. Numerous creek mouths on the east end of Choctawhatchee Bay where the Choctawhatchee River splits into delta country all can be good best on outgoing tides as are the numerous small rivers owing into East Bay at Apalachicola. Every bridge spanning the sounds and bays throughout the region can be productive. Fish the ledge where shallow water drops to deep on the bottom of the low tide in these areas. Flounder readily take articial lures, just not quite so readily as live bait. Lures which resemble shrimp are the favorite: the DOA 4-inch plastic shrimp is hard to beat when dragged slowly down the drop-off of a pass or the edge of a at. Many anglers offer a combo-platter; a half-ounce bucktail jig tipped with a live killish or a fresh-cut shrimp tail can be just the ticket when the sh are on the near-shore reefs in winter. Some old-time Panhandle anglers troll weedless spoons around the oyster bars on high tide to nd ounder concentrations. Its a tactic that seems counter-intuitive, running the outboard over the sh in shallow water, but it can be highly productive in late October. Flounder feed by lying at on the bottom, sometimes under a light coating of sand that is ipped over themselves. When a baitsh or shrimp comes close enough, they lunge out and grab it. Thus, the strikes can be fairly explosive. Thats about the peak of the excitement, though. They often settle right back to bottom after they grab a bait, and anglers new to ounder shing may assume they missed the sh because its not moving. Keep the pressure on and youll soon pull the reluctant creature to the boat. The ght is somewhat akin to reeling in a pie plate as their jaws are not strong, so its a good idea to net the larger ones to make sure they wind up in the ice chest. Another interesting way to collect a ounder dinner is peaking right now. Flounder gigging in the shallows of St. Andrew Bay is highly productive in August, September and early October. Flat-bottomed boats with powerful lights rigged on the bow illuminate the water ahead as the rig eases along in depths of 1 to 2 feet. The angler stands on the bow with a long-handled gig, and when the round, shadowy shape of a ounder appears in the lights, the gig does the job. Capt. James Pic of Destin specializes in this tactic, and you can check www.jp2sh.com for details. When the sh move outside after the rst cold front, Capt. Blake Nelson out of Destin has their number. He shes a halfounce jig with a plastic uke tail on hard bottom areas within a mile of the beach and frequently brings in limit catches. Learn more at www.captainblake.com. Floundering around Panhandle flatfish seem made to fit a plate R AY M ARKAM AND FRANK SARGEANT Flounder shing is great inside Panhandle bays from now through the rst cold front in fall. Many sh move off the beaches when inside waters chill in November, experts say. TOP : This 4-pound whopper ounder took a jig rigged with a swimmer tail to be brought aboard.

WASHINGTON COUNTY SCHOOLS Chipley, FL Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract Washington County Schools is currently seeking on a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract. All Washington County Schools *Note NASCARs Keselowski wins despite ankle break LONG POND, Pa. (AP) Brad Ke selowski was inspired Sunday by a relative in the Navy Seals, and that was all he needed to push through his painful ankle injury. Keselowskis cousin lost a friend who was one of 30 American service members who died when their helicopter was shot down during ghting in eastern Afghani stan. The NASCAR driver took the sacrice to heart and vowed he would not leave his car no matter how bad he hurt. So Keselowski went out and raced all 500 miles of the Sprint Cup stop at Pocono Raceway with a broken left ankle. As if that werent enough, he somehow managed to win, too. Competing with a brace on his ankle, Keselowski sped off on the nal restart late in the race to pick up his second victory of the sea son. He gingerly climbed out of his car to celebrate with his crew in Victory Lane. He dedicated the victory one that thrust him into Chase contention to the troops in Afghanistan. I might not be feeling great, but those are the guys that are really making sacrices, Kesel owski said. Whenever I got in the car and felt like, man, this really hurts, it was good inspiration as to what it takes to man up and make it happen. Keselowski was an unlikely winner after he crashed head-on into a wall Wednesday during a test session at Road Atlanta. He slammed a section of wall at 100 mph and was forced out of the Na tionwide Series race. He insisted during weekend practice that he wouldnt leave the No. 2 Dodge, no matter the pain. No relief driver was necessary, though Keselowski had some rest during a 1-hour, 40-minute rain delay. I was amazed he raced the full race, third-place nisher Kurt Busch said. Keselowskis victory placed him in prime position to claim one of two wild-card spots available for the Chase for the championship. The top two drivers with the most victories in 11th to 20th place earn a wild-card spot for the playoffs. Keselowski, in 18th place, is the only one of the wild-card contend ers with two victories. Only ve races remain until the eld is set. The top 10 drivers in the points standings automatically qualify. It gives us pretty high odds if were playing poker, he said. Keselowski posted several up dates on his injury this week on his Twitter page, including two photos that showed a swollen ankle and an abrasion on his foot. His broken left ankle ballooned to the size of a softball, and he needed a left shoe a size larger than his right one. Theres no good time, but this is certainly the worst time, he said Friday. No way. Keselowski won his third career Cup race and rst since he won in June at Kansas. I came here to win, he said. When you let the pain get into your head that far that you dont believe you can win anymore, you cant win the race. Kyle Busch was second, Jim mie Johnson fourth and Ryan Newman fth. Kurt Busch and Johnson had a heated exchange after the race because of some last-lap contact and had to be separated by their crews. The star drivers took turns bumping into each other on the nal lap. Busch said it was simply hard racing and Johnson, the vetime defending Cup champion, overreacted. You want to race, lets race, Busch said. I raced him smart, raced him clean, and he wants to come back here and (complain) about it. Why cant we race each other like this and put on a show for the fans? There was a racing triplehead er after rain halted the Trucks Series race Saturday and wiped out the ARCA race. Kevin Harvick won the Trucks race, Ty Dillon took ARCA, and Keselowski capped it all with his gutsy performance. There are moments in our sport that need to be documented as an Iron Man type of day, Kurt Busch said. Its amazing what the body can do. Rain hit Pocono hard the last two days, and when the red ag came on lap 125, Joey Logano had the lead. He took a break in the ESPN broadcast booth, where he was asked if he wanted the rain to stop or keep coming. I think its a dumb question, he said. Logano faded hard after a blown tire and nished 26th. Points leader Carl Edwards, who signed a multiyear extension with Roush Fenway Racing, was seventh. Once the rain stopped, Kyle Busch built a sizable lead until it was wiped out on a nal caution. That was the opening Kesel owski needed over the nal 16 laps, and he took advantage even with only one good ankle. It doesnt feel good, but Ill be all right, he said. Sports Nyad aborts Cuba-Keys swim HAVANA (AP) Wind conditions and less than ideal currents prompted marathon swimmer Diana Nyad to end her second bid to swim from Cuba to the Florida Keys about halfway through her journey early Tuesday. Elaine Lafferty, who was on the boat, according to Nyads blog, posted on Twit ter: Its over. Lafferty said the combination of factors was too much to safely continue. According to the Twit ter feed, Nyad was pulled from the water early in the morning after swimming for 29 hours. The swim was expected to take 60 hours to cover at least 103 miles (166 kilometers). It felt like this was my moment, a quote attrib uted to Nyad on her Twitter feed said. I dont feel like a failure at all. But we needed a little more luck. The Twitter account re ported she decided to end the swim after realizing the conditions of 5 to 10 knot winds and less than ideal currents. An online chart plotting the swims track showed the Gulf Stream currents pushing Nyad east of the intended course. Nyad had hoped to end her swim at Southernmost Point in Key West, Fla. According to the Twitter feed, Nyad was on a support boat after ending the swim and wrapped in blankets. The boat arrived at Key West early Tuesday. In her second attempt, Nyad tried to accomplish at 61 years old what she failed to do at 28 in 1978. This time, she even attempted the swim without a shark cage, relying instead on an electrical eld from equip ment towed by kayakers to keep them at bay. In her rst attempt in 1978, she quit after being in the water for 41 hours and 49 minutes, because of strong currents and rough weather that banged her around in the shark cage. Had the latest attempt been successful, Nyad would have broken her own record of 102.5 miles for a cageless open-sea swim, set in 1979 when she stroked from the Bahamas to Florida. Before the swim, Nyad told journalists she hoped her swim would inspire others her age to live ac tive lives. She said she also hoped it could help improve understanding be tween Cold War rivals Cuba and the U.S., even if just symbolically. Olympic prep goes on despite London riots LONDON (AP) Despite three days of rioting and looting in London, Olympic organizers were going ahead with a series of events to pre pare for the 2012 Games. A womens beach volley ball tournament began as scheduled at Horse Guards Parade, with players com peting on a specially made sand court a short distance from Prime Minister David Camerons residence. But organizers decided to use two courts instead of one for Tuesdays 12 matches so play could nish 90 minutes early, allowing spectators and staff to leave before dark. FIVB Beach Volleyball Director Angelo Squeo con sulted with high-ranking London Olympic organizers and police before making the decision. Squeo, who was on site during the Olympic Park bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Games, told The Associated Press he will do whatever to not even risk putting in danger anybody here. Other scheduled test events this week include a marathon swimming com petition at Hyde Park on Saturday and a cycling road race that will go through the streets of London on Sun day. The world badminton championships are taking place at the Olympic venue of Wembley Arena in north London. Olympic mens badmin ton champion Lin Dan of China said he took some pre cautions amid the unrest. I just aimed not to go along the street too much, he said through an inter preter. It was all right. A wave of violence and looting has raged across London, as authorities strug gled to contain the countrys worst unrest since race riots set the capital ablaze in the 1980s.
Washington, Holmes at a glance Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser B P A GE 1 Section By Steve Liner Managing Editor email@example.com This is like a big, Wausau family reunion, said Wausau Possum Festival and Fun Day General Chairman Jim Tharp as he opened the 42nd annual version of the event a national womans magazine called a truly unique community event. But a combination of soaring heat index and sagging economy conspired to reduce the normal crowds for the 42nd annual Wausau Possum Festival and Fun Day Saturday. Still, the event was filled with laughter, food, music and the signature possum auction. It was a good day, Tharp said. It was a good day for an off year. By off year, Tharp meant that the largest and most financially successful festival years are even-numbered, when the small Panhandle town is a Mecca for political office seekers from across Florida and the country. And even this year, the Possum Festival lived up to a national reputation as one of the most unique local celebrations, all because it honors all things possum. Vendors at the arts and crafts show offered everything from possum ice cream to possum breath scented candles and said business during the day was satisfactory if far from brisk. Attendance at major events of the festival, such as its parade, the possum auction and Fridays crowning of the Possum King and Queen, was consistently around 300. The biggest excitement of the day was generated around the possum auction, where a bidding war was rumored between the two candidates for state attorney who were in attendance. However, the men did not participate, so the top possum went to Washington County School Superintendent Dr. Sandra Cook for $250. Proceeds from the days fundraising typically go to the Wausau Volunteer Fire Department, and this year was no exception. But special contributions were being sought by the Wausau Garden Club as well to have the portion of State Road 77 through downtown designated a Blue Star Memorial Highway in honor of the towns military veterans. A plaque is planned for placement at the Possum Monument in downtown Wausau; however, the club has only a few days to raise a remaining estimated $2,500 to achieve the designation so the memorial can be placed during a planned Veterans Day celebration.

Gerald Brock and Tilman Mears helped children become familiar with the art and skill of bow and arrow shooting. We will continue with this, as it is a favorite with the kids, said tribal spokesperson Nancy Peterson. Rocky Weber showed dancing skills, and Billy led the children in a follow-the-leader Candy Dance. Beth Gates led women and children in the traditional womens dance, and we hope to also teach the Buttery dance steps in our next Educational Day on the fourth Saturday of August, Peterson said. Gates also told the story of how the Creek clans got their names and taught several Creek words to everyone. Then Billy and Rocky gave a demonstration on how to start a re the Native American way, with no matches! We then gave away to drinks and hot dogs and answered any questions that came up. We hope more will come out on the last Saturday of August from 3-5 p.m. on Lonnie Road at our clan grounds and try your hand at these activities. All are invited. This is open to the public, and if you have topics or activities that you would like taught, let us know. We are planning to teach drumming and a hatchet throw, and as soon as we have a good place, we hope to have a class in how to start investigating your family history. Please join us as it becomes cooler, and if there is interest, we will have longer classes on these Education Days. Stories, history, how tos, Native American medicine and maybe napping (making arrowheads and spear points and so on). Bryan Barton turns 12 On July 11, Med-Surance sponsored a deep sea shing trip for Bryan Bartons 12th birthday. Attending were David Barton, Brian Barton, Harry Barton, Susan Burns and Bryan. Reports were it was a great day of shing aboard the Southern Lady out of Port St. Joe. Capt. Jacob and Buck the Deckhand were on hand to make the experience memorable. This year, many southern states in the nation, especially Texas, are experiencing the worst drought on record. Several farmers might resort to selling their cattle to keep their farms aoat during these hard economic and dry times. Dr. Kevin Washburn, associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), said there are steps owners can take to save money and ensure their cattle are staying healthy living off the weathered land. The rst thing to remember during the summer months is to provide adequate shade and clean water for cattle. Though it seems obvious, trees are not plentiful in some pastures, and water sources are compromised because of the heat. If trees are sparse on your land, you can build loang sheds for your cattle, or there are commercially available freestanding shades to provide escape from direct sunlight. Sheds or freestanding shades are better than barns to protect cattle in the hot months, Washburn said. The higher the roof, the better, because it allows for wind to ow under for better cooling. Barns tend to be enclosed and dont allow for very much air ow. Standing water in a lake or tank might not be an adequate drinking source for your cattle. Especially in drought areas, when the water levels fall and mud is present, the water can become stagnant and unpalatable. It is best to provide a water source that can be cleaned and relled on a regular basis. The best type of food for your cattle in the late and dry summer months is good quality grass hay. If there is limited hay available, owners can also feed cattle cubes as a supplement. It is necessary to offer a food source such as grass, hay or cubes, not only to meet nutritional needs, but also because cattle might otherwise resort to eating the only green plants available, which often are weeds. Many of these weeds are toxic to livestock. The most common poisonous pasture plants in the southern region of the United States are coffee senna, twin leaf senna, pigweed, curly dock, oak leaves, old acorns, sneezeweed, broomweed, lobelia and silver leaf nightshade. These toxic plants can be monitored and sprayed, Washburn said. However, be careful when spraying for weeds, because the chemicals may make the toxic plants even more palatable, actually increasing consumption. If hay is not available, Washburn recommended contacting a producer co-operative, which will have a network of sources where producers can purchase hay. The downside to this method is the cost. The hay sources are often far away, requiring shipping at a premium price. Washburn suggested supplying balanced mineral mixes and cattle cubes that are 20 to 40 percent protein. This can help reduce the amount of hay required when supplies are limited. In order to stave off starvation for your cattle and prepare for the dry months, it is best to not overgraze when the pasture is producing and rains are heavy. Managing and storing hay when conditions are good allows for a plentiful supply. To survive during this long heat wave, pastured cattle need adequate fresh water, food sources and properly ventilated shade. If there are any questions about dehydration or malnourishment, consult your veterinarian or contact Large Animal Clinical Sciences at the CVM at 979-845-3541. By Christina Rexrode MAPLAT, Haiti (AP) I went to Haiti last year after the earthquake, driven by an excited but vague notion of doing some good in a hurting country. I went again this year with my eyes open a little wider, not jaded exactly but aware of why some people view these volunteer trips with justied skepticism. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, a place where sewage runs down the streets of the capital and children die because they dont have clean water. It is in desperate need of helpers. Still, I sometimes roll my eyes when Americans visit for a week and come home declaring that their lives have been changed, as if they were not going to happily resettle into their comfy routines. My editor asked me if these trips are just a way for rich people to lessen their collective guilt, and I think that sometimes they are. But I was impressed by the group I traveled with, a small nonprot called Farsight Christian Mission. Levern Halstead, who runs Farsight from his home outside Chattanooga, Tenn., says again and again that his trips must have an objectively measurable result a new building, a new bridge, a new well. He grows frustrated by volunteer groups that come with good intentions but no plan. Its a sentiment echoed by others I talk to in Haiti, both Haitian community leaders and long-term aid workers from the U.S. They dont want to discourage people from helping. But theyre dismayed by the aid groups that bring what they think Haiti needs instead of asking whats needed, which is how bags of donated high heels end up in villages where people trek through forests. Or the groups that want to play games with children but wont haul around plywood, as if they could be better teachers than someone who actually speaks Creole. Or the volunteers who wont bother to learn and respect the local culture. Some groups, you can tell, they just want to make their Facebook page really nice, says Nego Pierre Louis, a 24-year-old Haitian who founded a community service group called the Bezalel Movement. He saw a ood of donated medical supplies come to one aid group in Jacmel, the coastal town where he lives, after the January 2010 earthquake. And, he says, he saw much of it get thrown away because it expired while the group hoarded it, not sharing with other relief organizations. Still, there are good things to be done in Haiti. I was with Halstead last fall when he spoke to villagers from Seguin, in the mountains, about an idea where hed buy 30 sheep for 30 families. The program would be self-sustaining, with families giving back every other lamb until everyone had a few animals. The villagers told him theyd prefer that 15 families get two sheep each, because sheep get mopey when theyre alone. Halstead changed his plans immediately. After the earthquake, he raised money for Pierre Louis to buy vegetable seeds to take to another mountain village, Maplat, where people were starving as food donations got gridlocked in Portau-Prince. The villagers in Maplat doubled their food supply. And its not rice and beans with an American ag on the side, adds Halstead, 59. Hes been coming to Haiti for more than 14 years, ever since he walked away from a career in computer programming. My team spends the week in that same village, Maplat, which is really just a handful of buildings on the side of a treacherous dirt road. We help the villagers build a couple of one-room wooden houses with tin roofs nothing fancy, but theyll be useful for visiting doctors and other aid workers. I have no particular skills in construction or any vocation that would be especially useful to Haiti, like medicine or agriculture. But I can hammer a nail and lug around lumber, and thats good enough when youve got a leader who knows how to plug cogs like me into a machine. Maplats village pastor, Louissaint Louime, is a smiling man with whitening hair. Like most of the men, hes up every morning before dawn waiting to help build the houses. Like a lot of rural Haitians, he isnt sure how old he is, but he thinks hes 61. Louime cares for a congregation that mostly lives in cornstalk huts and rarely has enough to eat. But he doesnt particularly want a truck to speed by throwing out food and clothing, as happened after Hurricane Noel in 2007. Then, a few people will grab as much as they can and sell it later, and everyone else will get nothing, Louime and others said. His wish, he says through a translator, is for an agronomist to help his village learn how to better use the clay-ridden land, and maybe someone who will start a micronance program so that people can start businesses. In other words, people who will take the time to teach skills, not just make themselves feel better by giving away stuff they didnt want anyway. Well go into a new community and the kids, all the English they know is, Give me a dollar, give me a cookie, said Clayton Bell, a 28year-old doctor from El Paso, Ark., who works at the Cloud Forest Medical Clinic in Seguin. Its not their fault. But we have to retrain them, Okay, if you want that, you can help me work, you can help me clean the clinic. Next door, Chrisnet Excellus walks through the school where he is principal and worries that he wont be able to pay his teachers. He has more than 400 students at Ecole Chretienne Emmanuel, who sit ve to a bench in a concrete building without running water. Tuition is about $15 a year, but a third of the families cant afford it. Excellus lets the children come anyway. Excellus, 40, is married and the father of four girls. He has kind eyes. On a chilly day, he wears a Winn-Dixie windbreaker. I ask him what he needs for his school, and he needs everything, even pens and paper. I ask him what he wants for Haiti and he says, Complete change. I am not naive. I know that a couple of buildings in Maplat will not x Haitis problems. I know that radical changes are needed, like good roads, clean government, renewed industry, replenished topsoil, and I cannot bring them about. But that doesnt mean that we cant work for small victories. At the end of the week I come home to New York, a city I love. I walk my favorite streets, hug my friends, enjoy hot showers. But all I can think about are the dusty, barefoot children who grabbed my hands and grinned at me. And Jocelin, a Seguin teenager who wants to be a doctor because thats what Haiti needs. Tony, a student who dearly wishes to buy some books for the children in Maplat. Benitho, a debonair 20year-old who gets serious when I ask him what he wants for his country: If I can go anywhere to nd help, he says, I will. All I can think about is how I want to go back.

Wednesday, August 10, 2011 ROLLIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) Jake Ehlinger is part exterior designer, part environmental engineer. The Addison area resident is owner of Habitat Solutions, a land management business that helps landowners improve their property to attract wildlife, especially whitetail deer. After spending the last 30 years transforming his 70-acre parcel into a wildlife paradise, Ehlinger said he is now using his expertise and experience to help other landowners do the same. Many landowners have a passion for hunting and wildlife management and dont know where to start, said the 57-year-old Ehlinger, a lifelong outdoorsman who has a background as a mechanical engineer. (They) just make mistake after mistake after mistake. They can hire me to come out to their property. I walk every inch the day that Im there, whether it be 40 acres to 120 acres, all the time pointing out things to them that theyve never seen. Once he completes his on-site consultation and assessment, he literally goes back to the drawing board. Using his engineering expertise, he hand sketches a detailed management plan for the property, then writes a 12to 15-page improvement plan. He also uses Google Earth to print out a satellite view of the property. He generally provides a five-year plan, which includes advice on food plots, timber stand improvements, bedding areas, security cover and landscaping and soil quality. He also can help execute the plan or find someone who can. Its taken me 25-30 years to learn, Ehlinger said. My property is basically a proving ground. I invite people out and show them my techniques and tricks. They can see my trial and error. Years ago, Ehlinger said his land was 50 percent tillable, 50 percent woods and swamp. There was not a lot of deer habitat, he said. He decided to take a property management and land steward class, which included a presentation from some of the countrys top deer biologists. Ehlinger also is a member of the Quality Deer Management Association, a nonprofit organization that focuses on better deer and deer hunting, including whitetail deer in the Midwest. After using that expertise on his own Manitou Beach Road property, Ehlinger said he has helped others develop effective land management strategies. He said most of his clients are landowners who want to hunt deer on their properties. Some people are serious big deer hunters, some just want to see deer, Ehlinger said. Theres a full range of interests. One of those interests is from farmers who are trying to steer deer away from their valuable cash crops. He said he helped one Jackson-area farmer who was being ravaged by hungry deer eating his beans and corn. There were always two or three places where the deer would come out of his low spots and browse his beans and corn extensively, Ehlinger said. Ehlingers game plan was to plant several acres of clover and chicory on the property to provide an alternate food source. Ive been in contact with them since then, and hes probably got 10 acres in perennial and annual food he plants for the deer, he said. And the most important part the deer damage on his corn and beans went down about 80 percent in just providing the food in those low areas. He also distributes seed for food plots using his custom blend of warm grasses. In fact, he said his plan also includes the many cost-sharing programs the U.S. Farm Service Agency provides to encourage landowners to improve the native habitat. Ehlinger said those grasses can build topsoil and improve soil conservation as well. A typical consultation and plan runs about $500 for properties up to 120 acres. He said no property is too small, and he has developed successful plans for properties as small as 7 acres. And he said his services can be viewed as an investment in more ways than just improved deer hunting. A quality deermanaged property typically commands 15-25 percent more than a non-managed property, Ehlinger said. If someone takes their time and invests in five years of management, he can sell that property at a lot higher value. We have smart buyers out there. He said he also can help landowners attract turkeys, pheasants and other non-game species. People just dont understand the importance of habitat, said Ehlinger, who has clients ranging from as far as the Upper Peninsula, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. I have a lot of passion for wildlife. I just want people to be successful. Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 With the dog days of summer upon us, its hard to think about hunting. But if youre between the ages of 16 and 36 and havent yet taken the states hunter safety class, nows just the time to be thinking about it. Many of these classes, offered statewide, ll up fast during hunting season while people scramble to get certied. Summer months offer smaller class sizes and offer a better opportunity for students to attend, because they often have more free time then. People 16 years old or older and born after May 31, 1975, must complete the FWCs hunter safety requirement before they can buy a Florida hunting license. There is an exception though: a law passed a few years ago that allows individuals to hunt under the supervision of a licensed hunter, 21 years old or older, without having to complete the states hunter safety certication. Its called the Hunter Safety Deferral License, and it allows those people who purchase one to hunt on a oneyear trial basis. Its designed to encourage experienced hunters to teach novice hunters about our sport and is a great incentive for getting more people to give hunting a try. Individuals taking advantage of this would have to pass a hunter safety class to be eligible to buy a license and hunt the following year. If youre a youngster and already hunt, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class before you turn 16. Of course, until then, you may hunt under adult supervision. You can register for a hunter safety class by going to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety or by contacting your nearest FWC regional ofce. Also, there are two versions for your convenience. Theres the traditional course, which is 12 hours of classroom instruction plus a four-hour eld day, or you can opt for taking the online or CD-ROM version at home. But, youll still have to sign up for the skills day part. The traditional course is offered during four weekdays or on a Saturday-Sunday. If you take it during the week, each session is three hours and offered after normal working hours. On the weekend, youll spend eight hours Saturday and four hours Sunday morning in the classroom. The remainder of Sunday, youll move over to the shooting range to complete your certication. The rst thing youll learn about in the traditional class is Floridas many hunting laws. An FWC law enforcement ofcer gives this introduction. Volunteer hunter safety instructors teach the remaining curriculum. Youll be taught ethics, hunter responsibility, parts of rearms, various hunting lingo and the proper way to shoot. Youll discover the differences between various bullets, calibers and gauges; how to identify game animals; and learn wildlife conservation and best management practices for native species. In addition, youll nd out about outdoor survival techniques and learn how to administer rst aid in the eld. Archery and fundamentals of bowhunting also are taught. In your last hour in the classroom, youll be given a standardized test of true and false and multiple-choice questions. All you need is to score an 80 percent or better, and then you get to move outside to the shooting range for the eld day portion. This part takes about four hours. During that time, youll get to shoot clay pigeons with a shotgun, practice your archery skills and target practice with a .22 rie. Youll also receive a muzzleloader demonstration, where youll have the chance to shoot one if youd like. All guns, bows, targets and ammo are provided. All you have to do is take aim! After you complete the eld day, youll be given your hunter safety card. At that point you can purchase a Florida hunting license and get ready for opening day. If you choose to take the hunter safety class online or by CD-ROM, youll learn all of the above-mentioned material and be given a practice test to prepare you for the last segment, the skills day. Skill days take about four hours to complete. Youll learn much of what is taught during the traditional course, including hunting laws and ethics, how to handle rearms safely, when to take a shot and where to place the crosshairs. Then youll get to shoot on the range and be given the same standardized test. Register today to take a hunter safety class, cause the 2011-2012 hunting season is just around the corner!

If we take a close and honest look at our lives, we can probably determine what is most important to us. That is, we should consider whether our primary focus is on people or things. We sometimes may get so involved with situa tions and possessions that we can lose perspective as to what should be most meaningful to us. The Bible has some insight as to what should be foremost in our lives; it tells us that the most important commandment is that we should love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind and with all our strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:29-31). Jesus had few possessions during His life here on earth, but He was almost always involved with people. Today, more than ever, possessions are certainly necessary. And although there is nothing wrong with owning a nice home or an automobile, or anything else that makes our lives more pleasant, we should always be aware that God wants us to have good moral values and meaningful interactions with family and friends. Gods friendship is ours when we share it with others If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, Love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing right. N.I.V.

If you point out the truth to me from Daniel or Ezekiel or even Jeremiah, I can see it. But left on my own Im like the eunuch Phillip had to coach on the road. How well I remember Desert Storm in the early 1990s. My poor wife, the product of a very conservative Christian school education nearly lost her mind. She was convinced this was the opening of Armageddon. I really wanted to reassure her, but with no gift of prophecy, I was of little use. Only time relieved her anxiety. I was thinking about prophecy during my quiet time this week as I contemplated the later writers of John. Talk about a total mystery! Once I get past the mission of the seven churches as the beginning, my spiritual eyes glaze over. Given the amount of prophecy in the Bible, I have no doubt either that God takes it seriously (and expects us to do the same) or that it is an important part of our study of the Word. I just confess I need help with it. The surprising thing is that the imagery is often very beautiful and expressive to me. I love reading it. The riding horsemen in the Revelation speeding on their errands. The grand statue in Daniel that is a mixture of precious and common materials. Expressive. Grand. Eternal. Anyway, I distract myself and you from the real point here. I was contemplating the sense of loss John must have been feeling as he received and wrote down the Revelation. Far as we know, John the apostle of love had few earthly relationships. And, of course, the crucixion of Christ robbed him of his greatest personal relationship. How alone he must have felt and how ready to trek to Heaven for reunion. And that is what brought be full circle to prophecy. Here we have physical evidence of Gods providence and His plan. Daniels prophecy covers the major ancient empires through the Romans (at least that is what Ive been told). Clearly, our God has a plan. Clearly, our God is in control. And so, prophecy is our proof. This world moves on to an inevitable conclusion that nothing can sway. In that we have comfort. Prophecy: Man, that is not my gift! STEVE LINER Living the Editors Life Not only has this been a very hot summer, but for many it has been a very difcult summer. All of us from time to time experience disappointments, hurt and even repercussions from bad decisions. Often times as we look at life, it seems as though we have found ourselves between a rock and a hard place such as the children of Israel did as they stood on the banks of the Red Sea, and Pharaohs army was heavy on their trail. They had just escaped forty years of slavery and now it seemed as though they would either die in the wilderness or return to Egypt as tortured slaves. Their future did not look very great at that point. But Exodus 14:29 tells us, By faith (the Children of Israel) passed through the Red Sea as by dry land which the Egyptians trying to do the same thing were swallowed up by the water (KJV). Do you ever get in what seems to be impossible situations? Those times when you look behind you and you get distressed, and then you look out before you and you get depressed. What Im asking is, do you have any rivers you think are un-crossable or any mountains you cant go over or tunnel through? Well, if you said yes, I have good news for you. For my Lord specializes in things thought to be impossible. If you are between a rock and a hard place, if you are in what seems to be an impossible situation, youve looked behind you and the army of discouragement and bondage are closing in on you, and the Red Sea before you seems un-crossable, look to the Lord as Moses did. And then by faith, when He leads you forward, move forward and see what faith can do. Then nd you a good Bible teaching and believing local church, where you can meet with other brothers and sisters in Christ who will pray with and for you as you pray with and for them, not some of this TV hypedup stuff. Theres something that we often fail to take into consideration when we consider the children of Israel and their crossing of the Red Sea. The children of Israel didnt have a whole lot of faith to begin with. Moses was the one who had the faith. In fact, they cursed Moses out on many occasions and said, Man, why did you bring us out here, to drown? (Exodus 10:14 paraphrased). They always cried and grumbled when they got in a hard spot, saying dumb things like, it would be better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in this wilderness. So what we need to see is how the faith of one man can lift the level of faith of others. We learn as children that fear is contagious, but faith is contagious as well. One persons fear can ll a whole crowd with fear, or one persons faith can ll a whole crowd with faith. Moses said to the people when they began to fear, Fear not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. . For the Lord shall ght for you and you will hold your peace (Exodus 14:11-14 KJV). You know what happened next, dont you? When they started moving forward by faith, God took that Red Sea and simply parted the waters and then He put His Wet Vac to work and sucked up all the water out of the sand and it was dry as dust. They went walking through the Red Sea on dry ground. Thats what faith does. Faith leads you through the waters of impossibility. Actually the parting of the waters of the Red Sea is a great picture of the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and it gives us a beautiful picture of how our faith in Christ can deliver us from the bondage of sin. Dr. Jerry Vines once gave a wonderful denition of what living faith really is. He said, Living faith is faith that believes what God said (in His Word, the Bible) and acts upon it, regardless of the circumstances and consequences. You see that is what the Children of Israel did as they marched forward as God opened up the Red Sea. They trusted what God said and then acted on it regardless of circumstances or consequences. If you know Christ as your Lord, trust His Word and act upon it. But also notice, that as the children of Israel went through, the Egyptians saw what was taking place and basically said, Lets try that too. We also know the rest of the story, the same waters that delivered Israel destroyed Pharaohs Army. The truth we learn from that is, though you can encourage others in their faith and they can encourage you by their testimonies, you will not win heaven or victories in your life, through the faith of others. You, yourself, must have a relationship with Christ, because, salvation does not come from acquaintance, a religious experience or exercise, but from a personal relationship with Christ as your Lord (Romans 5:12; 5:8;6:23; 10:9-13).

Hot, difcult summer makes you remember: ImpossibleFROM THE HEAR T Tim Hall By Wendy Victora Florida Freedom Newspapers There have been times in my life when I am sure that God has whispered in my ear, guiding me through difficult decisions. At other times I have credited that same small voice with a kind of a gut instinct to slow down long enough to really listen to whats inside of me. Either way, those decisions have been among my best. So, although I am not the most spiritual person, I get the concept of listening to God. But that didnt keep me from being a bit surprised at a conversation I had last week with a stranger in a restaurant in Marianna. My family and I had gotten off the interstate a bit later than most people would consider a normal dinner hour. The restaurant was almost empty, but the hostess seated us next to a table of five older people. They were almost done eating when one of the men laughed loudly or did something that caught my attention. We struck up a conversation. He told me about a former employee with the same name as my son. I asked him where he worked and he said it was for a city in Missouri. My next question, naturally, was how he had happened to be in this part of Florida. I woke up one morning and God told me to move to Chipley, he said. My face must have frozen for a moment, while I tried to figure out what to say next. I think I said something like, Chipley? Its not that theres anything wrong with Chipley, I just couldnt fathom how it made it onto Gods radar and into this mans ear. Chipley, Florida? He said that yes, he and his wife immediately packed up and moved here, leaving a 4,300square-foot home and 10 acres in Missouri that he still hadnt managed to sell. I asked him how he liked it here and his wife answered for both of them. I love it, she said with a huge smile. His answer was a bit more subdued. He liked it, he told me. But he was still trying to figure why he was there. Why God had called him to move to Chipley. I couldnt answer that one for him, but Ive been pondering our conversation ever since. I have reflected on his strong faith and on how obedient he was to what he believed God wanted him to do. On a lighter note, I have also wondered why God chose Chipley. And how did that man know it was this Chipley he was supposed to move to, since there must be countless others across this nation. I didnt catch the mans name and will probably never talk to him again. But Im kind of pulling for him to get his answer, to find out why he gave up his house and his job to move to a small town in Northwest Florida. And I hope, somehow, I find out, too. God told me to move to Chipley
