BUMPY ROAD Rhythm housing development faces a Rhythm backers hope for harmony By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The road leading to the proposed Rhythm development centered between U.S. 231 and State 77 is winding and bumpy, with smooth portions at times giving way to unexpected bumps and washouts. One can apply that description to the roads Florida Landings LLC is promising to pave, but it is also an accurate description of the four-year-long process to obtain a development order. Backers of the project hope that road smooths out and widens with key votes and public hearings this month, beginning with Thursdays Planning Commission meeting. The landowner has said we have no alternative but to call the question because of relationships and agreements we have that involve the landowner, the prospective developer and the nancial partner, said J. Scott Henderson of Henderson Planning Group LLC, representing Rhythm. We feel that we have answered all the questions, done everything weve been asked to do and then some. Rhythm is the name theyve given for an age-restricted community of 55 and older with 3,200 dwelling units and promising a small amount of commercial, of ce and retail for the communitys immediate needs. The 1,883-acre parcel purchased in 2006 for about $3,700 an acre and currently on the tax rolls at $1,000 an acre is in the southeastern SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Above is a rendering of a proposed senior living community along the Bay/ Washington county line.

By Felicia Kitzmiller Florida Freedom Newspapers SUNNY HILLS Houses are sparse on County Line Road, even before the blacktop ends. Once the road becomes packed, orange dirt, the most prevalent traf c control devices are yellow signs warning of livestock crossing. There must have been some doubt about the earnestness of the warning, because a homemade white sign with shiny red letters reiterates the plea for careful driving on behalf of the animals. This is the kind of place where meeting an unfamiliar car on the road prompted Anthony Triolo, who has lived on Buckhorn Boulevard for 25 years, to roll down the window of his dirtecked white sedan and ask, Are ya lost? A proposed development of nearly 1,900 barren acres that would add more than 3,100 new homes would transform the sleepy no-mans land lying near the border of Bay and Jackson counties, residents universally agree. What they cant agree on is whether the addition of thousands of newcomers would serve as a stimulus to bring jobs and services to the area or destroy the tranquility and privacy residents Hello from the News new editor A4 Volume 88, Number 9 INDEX Arrests ..................................

Since Feb. 29, 2008, Rhythm has worked for approval of its DRI, or Development of Regional Impact, which includes requirements for speci c and detailed plans on everything from how infrastructure will be supported to the effects on the environment. The DRI goes hand-in-hand with the needed development order and Planned Unit Development (PUD), with all three needing approval for the project to move forward. And there would prove to be three impediments to those plans: concerns over whether Rhythms wells will draw down nearby private wells, neighborhood opposition, and a lessthan-willing neighbor in Bay County, which has the road with the most direct access to the property. WATER The water issues, Henderson said, should be settled given the reviews by the West Florida Regional Planning Council (WFRPC), the Florida Department of Transportation, the affected Water Management District, the local School District and a number of other agencies. The Rhythm DRI was submitted to the WFRPC in Pensacola on Feb. 29, 2008, and received WFRPC approval on Oct. 27, 2011, after all agency comments had been satis ed with three review cycles at each level. Washington County Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz said there was also a change that had to be made to the countys comprehensive plan to identify Rhythm as a PUD. A PUD is, essentially, another method of de ning how a piece of property may be used and includes speci c criteria. In Rhythms case, DeRuntz said, the PUD was re ned to include a 100-foot buffering zone to adjoining land and protected land, except for when joined to agriculture/silviculture, which would then be 50 feet. And it includes language that concerns water sheds, identifying spring sheds, both primary and secondary. Since water is such a precious resource, this includes the protection of water sheds, DeRuntz said, adding later, Weve got to protect our water. There are some areas with more sensitive recharge areas, and weve got to be especially careful in this area because most of the county is on wells. ROADS Henderson said he believes Bay County was reluctant to grant access via County Line Road, which runs directly to the project from U.S. 231, because of ongoing friction between Bay and Washington counties over test wells Bay has drilled to the west. He said Rhythm even offered to pave County Line Road up to and beyond county and state standards but was refused. Bay County of cials said the reluctance had more to do with feasibility than anything: there is not enough right-of-way to pave County Line Road to county and state standards, and the county would have to go to court to take that needed right-of-way from private property owners, which wasnt a viable alternative. So with the clock ticking, Rhythm turned back to Washington County with a plan to spend millions of dollars paving roads between the development and Chipley, mostly with federal grant money and at no cost to the county. The project supporters said the worst-case scenario is that the county gets millions of dollar in road improvements, even if Rhythm doesnt sell the rst unit. You never know when somethings going to help or hurt you, but in this case it could do nothing but help us, Washington County Engineer Cliff Knauer said during the previous BOCC meeting. Before, this project didnt address Washington County road and it wouldnt have been a bene t to us, but now it is. We rst addressed needing to do something about Buckhorn Boulevard in 1999 as well as that huge section in Quail Hallow. Knauer said paving those roads would bene t more than just this project. Its unbelievable how many people live down in that area and could bene t from these roads being paved, not to mention those are school bus routes, and itd save the district on maintenance needing to be done to those buses that have to go down those roads every day, Knauer said. With almost every aspect of this project, theyve gone above and beyond what is required. NEIGHBORS With water and roads addressed, Henderson said there is little left to do to appease those who live near the project. Trying to get the neighborhood comfortable has been a challenge, he said. Thats probably the biggest issue we have right now, and the neighborhood isnt going to be satis ed. But DeRuntz said he knew the concerns of the residents and in many of the aspects shared them, given the history of the area. Everyone is concerned with the economy, and everyone is living with the memory of Sunny Hills, DeRuntz said. That project was done before the land-use requirements. It would have never own with the new standards. And key to this development, DeRuntz said, is that all the conditions set forth in the agreements stay with the land and the development, not the property owner. Whatever is approved now has to be honored no matter who ends up developing the property. If something happens and the property changes hands, the new owner would have to follow the same guidelines to the letter or else they will have to start all over again, which is exactly where the developers were in 2008, DeRuntz said. DEVELOPMENT ORDER But the most pressing matter at the moment is the Development Order (DO). Without it, nothing happens. It represents an agreement between the developer and the county about how things are going to be developed, DeRuntz said. Thats why there are phases the development must work within so that they have to meet the requirements on their part in order to continue their development. DeRuntz said this is the biggest development to come to Washington County. With something this big, weve got to make sure they t into our comprehensive plan, DeRuntz said. The developer has met all the conditions. And one of the big conditions is that the road paving they have agreed to perform will be completed before units are built for Phase I, preparing the area for heavier traf c. This includes creating a new road called New Buckhorn Boulevard and paving Buckhorn Boulevard to Quail Hallow Boulevard, Quail Hallow Boulevard to Orange Hill Road and Orange Hill Road till it meets the latest in Florida Department of Transportation standards. Those parts of the road already paved will be repaved so that the entire stretch meets the latest in FDOT standards. Funding for this project is through an already approved Tiger III grant from the Department of Transportation. The developers have agreed to make up any shortfalls between that money and the actual cost of paving. After Thursdays meeting, developers will await a recommendation from the Washington County Planning Commission, which will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, at the Washington County Annex. From the Planning Commission, it goes before the Board of County Commissioners at 9 a.m. Feb. 16. If its approved by the BOCC then it goes to the Department of Community Affairs, and if its approved by the DCA then the developer will have to provide a DO submitting preliminary plans, permits from NFWMD with water consumption permits after extensive testing and studies; its a plethora of criteria that they must meet before they can move forward, DeRuntz said. A Facts Guide for a more extensive look into Rhythm was provided the developer and approved by DeRuntz. It will be available for viewing at www. chipleypaper.com under Rhythm Facts. currently enjoy. Im not for it; Ill tell you that, Triolo said about the Rhythm development being considered by Washington County. Triolo said hes been to three of the community meetings held about the proposed senior living development, and though theyve been informative, he said remains unconvinced the development would not degrade the quality of life in rural Washington County. The ve or six new wells the project calls for possibly could deplete the wells of others in the area and add unsustainable traf c to the narrow roads, he said. Privacy Many residents in the area seem to value their privacy; homes are either set well back from the road or have fences and gates guarding their property. Steven Eaton said he has lived in the dirt-road area bordering the proposed project off and on for 15 years. The privacy brings him back. I like being out where I can shoot guns and no one bothers you, he said. Though some of his neighbors get pretty up in arms about it, August Duffy said he doesnt hate the idea of some development coming to the neighborhood bringing more people, a hotel and some of ce space. Maybe itll get the roads paved, he said. People have this idea 2,000 houses are going to go up overnight; thats not going to happen. Duffy said he attended some of community meetings, but at least one dissolved into anger. Most people around here are dead set against it, and they get pretty heated, he said. The best source of information is the Quail Hollow General Store, Duffy said. The small store carries all the necessity of rural life snacks, drinks and news. I dont think I know one person up here thats in favor of it, cashier Rebecca Wiser said from behind the counter. Its just the way of life out here. Wiser said she moved to Washington County from The Villages in central Florida in an effort to get away from sprawling development that targets retirees. Despite the public resistance, Wiser said she gets the impression the Rhythm proposal will become a reality soon enough. They are going to railroad it through, she said. I feel that theres no stopping development. The development would bring an economic boost, though, said customer Debbie Dykes, who lives a few miles away near Sunny Hills. It could bring jobs for locals and attract new investment, she said. A lot of the people that are laying-low criminals are going to have to move out, she added. The jobs would be nice, Wiser said, but theres no guarantee outsider help wouldnt be brought in instead. I moved up here to get away from all that, she said. BACKERS from page A1 SITE from page A1

Hope to see you all there. Floridians are getting back to work By Gov. Rick Scott We recently learned Floridas unemployment rate decreased in December to 9.9 percent, down for the fourth straight month. Thats a 2.1percent drop in points in a year. For the rst time in two-and-a-half years, Floridas unemployment number is in single digits. These numbers provide clear evidence Floridas economy is moving in the right direction. But most importantly, these numbers mean Floridians who didnt have jobs one year ago are now able to nd jobs. I am committed to working to make Florida the best place to start, grow or move a business so that every Floridian who wants a job has the opportunity to get to work. As one of the nations leaders in job creation, Florida totaled 141,500 private-sector jobs last year. Thats almost 12,800 new jobs every month. In December alone, Florida added more than 5,000 private-sector jobs at a rate of more than 12 jobs for every job that was lost as local, state and federal governments trimmed their workforce in order to live within their means. Floridas lower unemployment rate is proof businesses, not governments, create jobs, and it is Floridians who deserve the credit. With the help of the Legislature, I am committed to making changes that continue moving Florida in the right direction. I am focused on streamlining government, removing barriers to job creation, eliminating burdensome regulations and keeping the cost of living as low for families and businesses. There still is much work to be done. We must build on our success and ensure the short-term and longterm success of Floridas businesses. Our achievements must serve as a platform for attracting new businesses to Florida from around the world. I have no doubt Florida can be the No. 1 destination for global business. To achieve that goal, we must have the best educated workforce with the skills necessary to compete in our 21st century global economy. A good education is essential to getting a good job, so I have proposed adding $1 billion for K-12 education. This is the third largest amount of state funding for K-12 in the past decade. To ensure we do not let the children of our state down, I will not sign any budget into law that does not contain signi cantly more state dollars for education than we had last year. The Florida House of Representatives shares my vision and has allocated more than $1 billion for education. I am grateful for their support for the young people of our state. Another step that will make Florida a better place for business is to make sure we focus on the transportation projects that are best for Florida. Preparing Floridas ports for increased trade from the expanded Panama Canal and free trade agreements will ensure Florida is a global trading hub and attract businesses to our state from across the world. Florida already is the top tourist destination, and we are well on our way to being the leading place for business. We are making great progress in the Sunshine State, and I look forward to working closely with the Legislature to identify ways to ensure that every Floridian that wants a job, can get one. I remain focused on three things: making sure Floridas children can receive a good education, making sure that Floridians can nd a job and keeping the cost of living low in our state. Please share your ideas with me by emailing Rick.Scott@eog. my orida.com. Working together, we can get Florida back to work! Chipley Garden Club off to the mill Submitted by Gweneth Collins Chipley Garden Clubs February meeting will be at 10 a.m. today at the Nelson home in Chipley and will include a luncheon. Following lunch, the group will be off on a eld trip to the Hoovers Mill facilities in Chipley to learn all about grinding meal the Hoovers way.

Call 638-0212. Article highlights high school accomplishments My 1944 Vernon High School classmate Frederick Kolmetz rates high on the list as one of the most faithful readers of Perrys Prattle, which is now approaching its ninth anniversary. Frederick has told me many of his experiences in grammar school at Pleasant Grove School, teachers he remembers, the discipline they administered and some of the profound teachings that many of the teachers imparted to the students. Recently, my classmate brought me a packet of materials containing an article written by Ken Yarbor in the April 2010 edition of Street Talk. His subject was the school at Hinson Cross Roads, of cially named Pleasant Grove School. Thanks to the author, Ken Yarbor and the publisher, Kelley Ward, for their approval in using some of that material for this story. Ken Yarbor and wife, Stella, are retired educators from Bay County. Ken has family ties in the Hinson Cross Roads community of Washington County, where they now live. When Ken became impressed to write some history spotlighting Pleasant Grove School, he immediately called Gertrude Dunn Weaver, whom he knew had a long and colorful career in the teaching profession in Washington County. He learned that retired Gertrude Weaver began school at Pleasant Grove in 1927 and graduated from the eighth grade in 1934. She reported that an average of 60 students, in grades one through eight, were taught in the fourroom, bungalow style building. It was built on land acquired from Mrs. Anne Hood in 1926 and welcomed its rst students in the Fall of that year. Drinking water was obtained from the open well of Mrs. Hood. The rst principal of the school was a Mrs. Wyatt. Others include George Moore, Mr. Sellars, Cary Fleming, Jennie McKeithen, Olga Hardy, James F. (Jim) Russ Sr., Olive Berry, Rex Yates, Auburn Hood, Johnny Jenkins, J. V. Ross and R. I. Roche Sr. Teachers recalled by Mrs. Weaver from the earlier years are listed as Lillian Fleming, Iris Worthington, Mary Hiley, Mamie Evans, Mary Russ, Carlton Brock, Verna Fleming, Margie McCrary, Ola Hood, Auburn Hood, Jessie Hinson, Katie McDonnell, Myrtice Smith, Fitzhugh Carter, Burton Farrell, Ottis Pippin, Lillie Bell Worthington, Belle Sapp and Ada Pate. Some of the teachers lived with families in the community. Mary Hiley Remington, now 97 and living in North Carolina, boarded with the John Lee family and continues to maintain contact with Teresa Lee Duke, daughter of the Lees. She also wrote extensively for the Heritage of Washington Book, published in 2006. She does not recall discipline ever being a problem in the school and recalls that teachers always had full cooperation from parents. Heat for the school building was provided by wood burning heaters, which made for extreme heat or extreme cold and also allowed for unpleasant smoke to permeate the room if not burning properly. In addition to the school trustees duties of hiring teachers, they were also responsible for purchasing wood for heat. Ken Yarbor reports that present residents of Hinson Cross Roads, Rev. Leon Jenkins, pastor of New Bethany Assembly of God Church there, Horace Anderson and Mrs. Merle Osment, continue to fondly remember their experiences as Pleasant Grove School students. The school principal would use a hand-held bell to call students to their classrooms. Teachers would start school each morning with a devotional, a pledge to the ag and the singing of patriotic songs. Most students brought lunches in paper bags. After eating, they were allowed to remain outside until the principal rang the bell, signaling the time to return to class. Most students walked to and from school. Others rode horse drawn wagons and a few rode automobiles. Two school buses served the school with Tom Morrell and Harvey Hinson delivering elementary pupils to Pleasant Grove School and to Vernon with High School. The 1932 rst graduating class of Vernon High School consisted of all graduates of Pleasant Grove School. They were Carmel Brock, Ola Hood, Ethel Smith and Mary Yates. Gertrude Weaver returned to Pleasant Grove to teach in 1941 after graduating from Vernon High School in 1938. She remained there until 1946, serving as principal of the school in the 1945-46 school term. This ladys career in teaching in Washington County Schools is legendary. Many fond memories have been expressed of the good ole days at Pleasant Grove School by former students and the host of teachers who worked there. A follow-up article is planned next week on New Prospect School near Caryville. New editor joins staff The more things change, the more they stay the same. A year ago, I was managing editor of the Washington County Newspapers not in Florida, but in Washington County, Ark. As of Monday, my job title became managing editor of Washington County News and the Holmes County Times-Advertiser, but while the title is the same, my latitude changed quite a bit. My wife and I packed up and moved to Chipley this past weekend so I could take the position as managing editor of Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser. In a nutshell, I began my journalism career in high school, then after a stint in the Navy, I returned to Arkansas State University for my degree in journalism. I have worked as editor at weekly papers in Eureka Springs, Ark., Dumas, Ark., and of course in Washington County. The paper was in the city of Lincoln, population 2,100. I began the process of moving to the Tri-County area back before Christmas, but the holidays slowed down the process and I wasnt able to see Chipley until early January when I ew down to visit. It was pretty much love at rst sight for me, and I couldnt wait until I was bringing my better half, Shannon, down to see this region. I kept trying to come up with an Arkansas correlation, but there wasnt really anything quite to match Chipley. To this newbie, the city has a quiet, beach-like charm in the architecture and a grand sense of southern hospitality. Spanish moss and palm trees are the biggest tip off I am not in Arkansas any more. Washington County, Ark., is home to the city of Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas, which of course is home to the Arkansas Razorbacks, which is the states No. 1 team. The Hogs did very well in the SEC this past season. My alma mater is Arkansas State University, however, which is in northeast Arkansas and is home to the Red Wolves, which play in the Sun Belt Conference. Everyone I have met so far in my three-day residency here has been very gregarious Sunday night we dined at KFC and I was impressed with one of the young ladies behind the counter who is planning a new career as a nurse, beginning her training this week at Washington-Holmes Technical Center. I havent gotten to explore much of Holmes County yet, although I came down from Montgomery via U.S. Highway 231 so I got to see much of the countryside. Still, I have yet to get to come meet many residents. If you see me out and about feel free to stop and say hello, I am looking forward to meeting as many folks as I can and becoming a part of the community. My philosophy on community newspapers such as ours is that the newspaper is the collective story of not only the city or the county government, but its the story of all of us, and I am looking forward to telling as many of our stories as possible. Since I am new here, I am asking for your help in telling the Tri-County story. Email me at rseyler@chipleypaper.com about your lives Im interested in everything. Jobs, hobbies, churches and church happenings, county history If you think it should be in the paper, drop me a note or give me a call 638-0212. Im looking forward to reading, and writing, about you. PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor, Im ashamed to be a card-carrying member of the Republican Party. Are Romney and Gingrich the best we can put up as our nominee? Do we, as a party, really feel that the lesser of two evils is the best way to select a Presidential candidate? Our debates have deteriorated to an endless, pointless, barrage of mud-slinging; never any real detailed debate over issues. This really depresses me. Mr. O must be loving it, as he will have all the mud he needs when it comes to mud-slinging time in November. Bill Ford Bonifay GOP needs to step up presidential nominations if we want a true change in leadership RANDAL SEYLER Editor

Name:________________________________________ Age:_________ City:_________________________ Phone number:___________________ (phone numbers will not be printed; used for contact purposes only) JANUARY WINNERS Special to the News Laurence Paul Cutts father was a beekeeper, so it came as a natural progression that he would follow in his fathers footsteps. At 16, Cutts began raising queens to sell. This grew into a business in which he produced and sold honey and provided bees for pollination for various crops in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. He worked in this business until 1985, when he accepted a position with the state of Florida overseeing the states apiary inspections. During his employment with the state, the varroa mite and small hive beetle were creating major problems for beekeepers throughout the state. Laurence was instrumental in bringing the need for research to reduce beehive losses to the forefront. Throughout his tenure with the state, he was always accessible to both commercial and independent beekeepers with unlimited advice and direction. A commercial beekeeper with more than 8,000 hives once remarked that without Cutts, he would have lost everything. He recently invented and is marketing a new beetle trap through various bee supply companies in the United States. This trap promises to be a better deterrent for the small hive beetle. Laurence was known as a leader in the states beekeeping industry and as such was a much sought-after speaker and teacher. Because of his leadership, determination and experience, Florida remains a leader in agricultural production. Without honey bees pollinating Florida crops, this state would be unable to produce the quantity and quality of various agricultural products it does today. Local beekeeper inducted into Agricultural Hall of Fame LAURENCE PAUL CUTTS TALLAHASSEE (AP) U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland says he will le a bill in Congress that would put pressure on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to adopt state rather than federal water pollution rules for Florida. The Panama City Republican announced his plans Monday on the steps of Floridas old Capitol. The legislation would prohibit the EPA from adopting its own rules for Florida if the agency administrator determines state rules meet requirements of the federal Water Pollution Control Act. It would not affect other states. Our bill reinforces the bipartisan work being accomplished in the Florida Legislature to ensure that no one has greater control in determining the health of our waterways than ourselves, Southerland said. Environmentalists contend the states proposed rules setting numeric nutrient standards for phosphorous and nitrogen in lakes, streams and other water bodies would be too weak to prevent or clean up toxic algae choking Floridas waterways. The nutrients are contained in such pollutants as sewage, manure and fertilizer. Agriculture, business and utility interests back the states version. They contend the tougher federal rules would be too expensive to implement. We are not trying to reduce or to undermine the requirements in the Clean Water Act, Southerland said. Were just saying when we meet those standards, acknowledge those standards and do not single us out for a stiffer standard that does not apply to the other 49 states. A nonbinding provision in the proposed legislation also would express the sense of Congress that the EPA should take into account the economic effect of numeric nutrient criteria when deciding which set of rules to adopt. That includes not promulgating or enforcing any criteria that would result in a negative economic impact of 15 percent on any such sector. The legislation might be too late to affect the EPAs decision on rules for inland waters, which is expected by March. The agency, though, says it may agree to another delay if the state needs more time to implement the rules. The implementation date already has been delayed for 15 months. The EPA also is developing separate rules for coastal areas. They currently are scheduled for adoption in November. Southerland to le water pollution bill

OUTD OO RS Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Can you believe it? Spanish mackerel in January? Most every year in March everyone goes to bed like a kid excitingly waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas Day, except in this case these shermen are waiting for the spring run of Spanish mackerel. This year the wait was over sort of early. A whole two months to be exact. On both big piers, the city and M.B. Miller, Spanish mackerel were caught this past week. I wouldnt put too much stock in the fact it appears they have arrived early this year, because they are just holdovers from last year. If we ever get some cold weather it will drive down the water temperature and they will be as hard to nd as your brother-in-law who owes you money. Another sh that is a holdover from last year is the pompano. They have been catching pompano off the beaches all winter. These pompano arent the biggest ones I have seen, but you should not have to measure them. When Phillips Inlet opened recently thousands of juvenile pompano emptied into the Gulf. Im sure some of the pompano being caught are some of those. These pompano have been trapped in the inlet since summer waiting to get back to the Gulf. The old reliable whiting also are biting in certain spots on the beach including the cement piers. Redsh seem to come and go as they please and a few are being caught when they pass under the piers. I have noticed that normally a redsh caught from a boat has to be more than 18 inches and under 27 inches. Not so it seems if caught off the beach. If it can t in the cooler or even if it cant it never seems to nd its way back to the water. At least not with the crew shing down my way. Another sh that is being caught and seen under the piers is sheepshead, another March sh. They also are caught beginning in March when they come to spawn around the jetties and wrecks in shallow water. I know the Gulf is warm for January, but water temperature is not the only factor that pushes these sh to spawn. The length of the day or amount of sunlight also is an indicator. If you are tired of sitting in the woods and not seeing a deer, pick up the rod go shing. At least until it turns cold again. Hooked on Outdoors & Brought home a big buck or sh?

Whitetail deer were once rare in the state but not anymore. Hunters are able to be more selective in which deer to remove from the herd. By Stan Kirkland FWC Deer hunters love to reminisce about past hunting seasons and big deer some that got away and others that now adorn their walls. What hunters new to the sport might not realize is how much deer hunting has changed, particularly in Florida, over the past three to four decades. Going back even further, whitetailed deer were practically eliminated from Florida in the early 1900s because of over exploitation, eradication efforts in South Florida associated with the cattle fever tick, and losses to the screwworm. It wasnt until the 50s and 60s that deer were stocked by the then-Game and Freshwater Fish Commission in various places and deer populations began to rebuild. This also was aided by increased enforcement of game laws. When deer hunting seasons resumed in the 50s and 60s, most hunters hunted deer the only way anyone in the South knew how with hounds. They used mostly walker hounds and sometimes beagles. Every hunter wanted dogs with a good nose, dogs that would cold trail and bark when the deer jumped. If all went according to plan, the deer ran by members of the hunting party on stand. They shot at the bucks and the does went by untouched. At least that was the plan. When Floridas human population was relatively low in the 1960s and 70s, deer dog incursions on private property were infrequent enough that deer dog hunting continued unabated. The 80s and 90s however, brought change. As Floridas population increased and more and more people moved to rural areas, complaints about deer dog hunting increased. In response, the GFC prohibited the hunting groups from taking stands on most roads across the state, whether they were county-maintained dirt roads or paved highways. Beginning in 2005, hunting parties were required to register their hunting lands with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, a move to show the landowner was okay with deer dog hunting on their property. The changes in deer dog hunting in Florida and other Southern states loosely corresponded to an upsurge in deer still-hunting. Still-hunting usually involved a hunter in a tree stand or in a ground blind waiting for a deer to pass. Today, deer dog hunting is still alive and well on private lands, albeit not to the extent as years past, and on public areas managed by the FWC. However, the majority of deer hunters now are still-hunters. Every outdoors TV program about deer hunting features still-hunting. At the same time, hunters and landowners today are more interested in managing their deer. Theyve learned they can generally support so many deer on the property and they work with the FWC to remove both does and mature bucks. The proof that deer management is working in Florida is the incredible number of above-average bucks measured for the Florida Buck Registry.

SP O RTS www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, February 1, 2012 A Page 7 Section By Jason Shoot Florida Freedom Newspapers PONCE DE LEON Tim Alford, as should be expected, saw signs for concern long before his players did. Now in his 17th season coaching the Ponce de Leon girls basketball team, Alford watched his players head into the holiday break with a 14-0 record. Two stunning losses at a tournament in Freeport in late December, however, stripped away a layer of overcon dence that Alfords players now readily admit was hindering the team. You can tell there is a big difference between the beginning of the year and where we are now, senior point guard Kate Carroll said. Those two losses during Christmas break got our attention. The Pirates havent lost since, rolling up a 21-2 record this season, including a 10-0 run through District 3-1A. Everything was different, junior Jordan Thomas said of bouncing back from losses against Cookeville (Tenn.) and Paxton. You could tell a whole lot changed. We were all on the same page, and its easier playing that way. You could watch our tapes (early in the season), and you could tell our defense was getting worse. Defense is our main priority. Like coach Alford said, Defense never lets you down. Our shots will fall. If PDL advances out of the District 3-1A tournament set to begin on Monday in Cottondale, it will extend a streak of seven consecutive years that the Pirates have reached regional play in the postseason. Since the 2004-05 season, PDL has quali ed for two state semi nals, one regional nal, three regional semi nals and one regional quarter nal. Ask Alfords players about that string of success and theyll give you myriad answers that all nd their way back to the same central gure: Tim Alford. Two key gures on this years Pirates team, Thomas and fellow junior Ashley Harper, once had reasons not to play basketball for Alford. That was before they got to know him, of course. Coach Alford, I consider him one of my best friends, said Thomas, who lives minutes away from Walton High in DeFuniak Springs but makes the daily trip for school at PDL. I can talk to him about anything. Harpers older sister, Hillary, capped her own remarkable career in a Pirates uniform last year. Growing up behind her, Ashley was cognizant that expectations consequently would be higher for her, too. It felt like I was following in her footsteps, Harper said. I didnt want to play basketball because of that. I didnt want to be compared to her. Harper said she changed her tune after she saw how Hillary interacted with Alford on and off the court. Alfords in uence was a positive one, and Harper decided she would try to carve her own path on the basketball court at PDL. Hes always on me about being lazy or not doing something right, Harper said behind a smile and a laugh. He didnt take it easy on me. Alford has bene ted from Ponce de Leons long-standing merger of the towns middle school and high school. He knows what sort of player he has coming down the pipeline as much as three years before that player has entered her rst varsity game. Im fortunate theyre on our campus in sixth grade, Alford said. Everything they do in middle school is leading up to what will eventually happen (on varsity). Its not as advanced, but the things we want them to know, they get early. Jazz Flock, a 6-foot senior who can play in the post and step out and knock down shots from the perimeter, arrived at PDL in eighth grade. An Indiana native, Flock joined Carroll as ninth-graders on the Pirates varsity squad. He calls it out, Flock said, and we know exactly what to do. Flocks all-around game gives the Pirates options on offense that most other Class 1A schools cant duplicate. She can back down smaller players into the post, and she can take taller, slower players outside, where she can hoist a jumper or take her defender off the dribble. Flocks emergence as a go-to player offensively was made more important when the teams expected starter at shooting guard, Jaicee Mayo, tore a knee ligament in the nal practice before the season began. Carroll also is a stabilizing force on the oor, offering a wheelbarrow full of experience and leadership. Its a big obligation, Carroll said of living up to the programs past success, which includes two state titles. De nitely expectations are always high. But its not just the pressure of the past we put on ourselves. Its this year, too. The Pirates are hopeful they will get another shot at Paxton, which plays in District 1-1A and beat PDL 49-36 on Dec. 30. If those teams do square off again, theyll meet in the Class 1A state semi nals with a berth in the championship game at stake. The Pirates, as they learned once (or twice) from their two defeats, are aware that considerable work remains before that opportunity potentially presents itself. Before we lost we thought we could get by with anything, Harper said. We went out there thinking we had it. When we got beat we realized we have to start working hard. Its been tough, but its been worth it. Added Carroll: I cant say for sure where were going. ... But well work for it every day. PDL focus strong for postseason By Cathrine Lamb Editorial Assistant Clamb@chipleypaper.com Danica Sue Patrick, better known to NASCAR fans as simply Danica, was born on March 25, 1982, in Beloit, WI. She now lives in Phoenix, Ariz., with her husband. Even though she is not the only woman to have been in NASCAR she is one of the few. The rst was Louise Smith which won more than 30 races in the 1940a. Danica started her career at the age of 10 Kart Racing. She was the rst woman to lead at the Indy 500 in 2009. Danica will be running 10 races in the #10 car in the Sprint Cup Series for Stewart-Hess Racing, and fulltime in the #7 Go Daddy car for JR Motor Sports. Patrick has announced that she will be taking a year off from the Indy 500 so she will be able to race in the Coke 400 the two races are being run on the same day. In her personal life she says she will drive anything fast and black, but she dose her errands in a Acura MDX. Danicas hobbies are working out, traveling, nice dinners and laughing. Danica says her most memorable moment was leading the Indy 500. Next week I will be doing Cathrines Pit Stop on the history of NASCAR.

WINTER STATS By PAT McCANN Sports Editor | pmccann@pcnh.com 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann Nobody wants to enter a tournament feeling like theyre playing for second place. Three schools in next weeks District 2-3A boys soccer pairing at Arnold couldnt be blamed for adopting that mantra. Choctawhatchee, last years state runner-up in Class 4A, is the overwhelm ing favorite in the fourschool district that begins on Tuesday. The Indians were cruising along at 17-2 late last week while Arnold was 4-11-4 and Rutherford 3-7-3. The fact the host Marlins edged the Rams in a recent game dropped Rutherford to the No. 4 seed and a firstround collision with Choc tawhatchee. Arnold faces Milton, 4-12-0. Choctaw, who took sec ond place in their 4A state run last year, look unstop pable now that they have been dropped into 3A play. Arnold coach Rick Sylvester said. There is no question Choctaw is, far and away the best team in the district and maybe in North Florida. Rutherford has a daunting task meeting them in their opening game. The Marlins have strug gled through their worst season in Sylvesters nine years guiding the program. Having faced a great deal of adversity this year, and sporting the worst record since I have been coaching here, we are cling ing to the hope that we can beat Milton and somehow make a go of it in the final, Sylvester said. With very limited forces left after a long season of attrition, the odds are certainly against us, but we are hoping that we can make the best of our beautiful facility and put on a respectable show at home. Bay fashioned a 10-0-0 district record to earn the first seed in District 1-2A, that tournament at Walton in DeFuniak Springs. Tor nadoes coach Ron Houpt knows that anything can happen in the playoffs wit nessed by his teams deep run last winter. Bay, 13-6-3, by far looks like the best bet on paper to advance of any county squad. This district tourna ment has had many sur prises in the past, Houpt said. We will focus on not letting that happen to us. We will play one game at a time and treat it as the most important game we will play this year. Actually it will be. We started off slowly this year and have made adjustments in the last month and are now ready to make a playoff run. We have had many injuries during the season, but now seem to all be healthy. Mosley, 10-6-1, lost a tie breaker with Lincoln for the No. 3 seed in 2-4A which could become pivotal as it knocked the Dolphins into Mondays play-in game. The ramifications were made more severe by the winner of that game advancing to meet top-seeded Chiles in one of Wednesdays semi finals. Leon and Lincoln meet in the other. Its a tough road to advance because we will face Chiles in the semi, who defeated us three times during the season, Mosley coach Dave Ska kal said. If, however, we can beat Columbia for the fourth time we are optimis tic because we played very well against Chiles the last time we saw them. Any thing is possible in a district tournament. Port St. Joe posted a 4-1-1 record during the regular season against 1-1A opponents, with a pair of lopsided victories against first-round opponent Freeport. The top-seeded Tiger Sharks are 13-2-1 overall. We will be entering dis tricts this year with a confi dent, but cautious nature, coach Gary Hindley said. We got a bit out of sorts during the holiday break, but our last several regularseason games were back on track.

This eld trip was both educational and enjoyable. Select cadets were chosen to attend the adventure and were asked to take notes on all the historical facts that they passed by on their tour of the ship. The U.S.S. Alabama was built in 1940. The ship, from stem to stern, is 680 feet long and 108 feet wide. The guns were 16 inches in diameter and shoot a 2,700 pound projectile loaded with 900 pounds of gun powder. The ship itself was a small city; containing doctors of ces, dentist of ces, a Brig, isolation room, laundry room, chow hall, Ice Cream Parlor, Bakery and of course, a sick bay. In addition, we boarded the U.S.S. Drum, the submarine on display with the ship. On board the submarine, there was barely any space to move around. Every inch of the walls was covered in dials, levers, switches and tubes. All in all, the eld trip was an amazing experience. The cadets in attendance had a great time and learned a lot. Maj. Kuneman said the ship is, incredible, and you just have to go see it to believe it. Yellow Jacket Battalion eld trip to U.S.S.

Ready, Set, Go! Is a program that prepares citizens in the event of a wildland re, said Godden. We are here to provide the tools needed to educate others so we can all be more prepared for when a wildland re strikes. Wednesday, F ebruary 1 2012 Ready, Set, Go is coming More on Ready, Set, Go! Right: Brian Goddin, Wild re Mitigation Specialist/Public Information Of cer for Holmes and Washington County introduced everyone to the Ready, Set, Go program scheduled for introduction to the surrounding counties. CECILIA SPEARS The Ready, Set, Go! Program seeks to develop and improve the dialogue between re departments and the residents they serve. Engaging in this dialogue is particularly important for the re service, because national studies have shown that re ghters are uniquely respected in their communities and can project a trusted voice to the public preparedness appeal. They can also explain what re resources are available during an event and the role that individuals can play in preparedness and early evacuation if called for by their local of cials to increase the safety of residents and responding re ghters to a wildland re. The RSG Program works in complimentary and collaborative fashion with Firewise and other existing wildland re public education efforts. It ampli es their preparedness messages to individuals to better achieve the common goal we all share of re-adapted communities. When re ghters encourage residents to take personal responsibility for preparing their property and family for WUI/wildland re, residents become an active part of the solution to the problem of increasing re losses. R eady Preparing for the Fire Threat: Be Ready, Be Firewise. Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildfire so your home is ready in case of a fire. Create defensible space by clearing brush away from your home. Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safe construction measures. Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe spot. Make sure all residents residing within the home are on the same page, plan escape routes. For more information about how to be Ready for wildland fires, go to Firewise. org S et Situational Awareness When a Fire Starts: Pack your vehicle with your emergency items. Stay aware of the latest news from local media and your local fire department for updated information on the fire. G o Leave early! Following your Action Plan makes you prepared and firefighters are now able to best maneuver the wildfire, ensuring you and your familys safety. Be Ready! Be Set! Go! Following your Action Plan makes you prepared and re ghters are now able to best maneuver the wild re, ensuring you and your familys safety.

Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 President Thomas A. Kinchen offered an inspirational start to the spring semester chapel services at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville on Monday, Jan. 16, with his chapel series entitled The After Christmas Specials. Kinchen welcomed new BCF students, recognized the Lady Eagles volleyball team for their outstanding season, and began the Monday morning chapel service by asking the question, After Christmas, the presents, wrapping, and decorations, where do you nd Jesus? Referencing the book of Luke, Kinchen read the account of a young Jesus missing from His family. After searching, He was found in the temple listening and speaking with the teachers. Where was Jesus? He was about His Fathers work. Folks today are frantically searching for Jesus, Kinchen said. Its pretty easy to nd Him. Just go where Gods work is being done, where His word is being proclaimed in truth, and where Gods people are worshipping, working, and ministering. BCF students and faculty were reminded not to misplace Jesus in the chaotic holiday season and in their everyday lives. Tuesdays chapel service continued with Kinchen illustrating the typical hinting season of Christmas. For example, people spend months before Christmas hinting to others what they are hoping to receive as gifts. Many times though, people arent satis ed with their presents. It may not t or doesnt work exactly how they planned. Kinchen also observed that around Christmas time, Christians are adamant about wanting to keep Christ in Christmas. But do they really want Him? Its okay if Hes a little plastic Jesus. Its okay if Hes warmed by a little 20-watt light bulb in a convenient cardboard manger with some imported hay. Thats okay. He doesnt bother us much there, does He? Its even okay if Hes the little lost boy in the temple, or a healing Savior, touching those in desperate need. But do we really want Christ in Christmas when Hes cleansing the temple and we know there are dirty places in our lives? Do we really want Him interrupting our plans? Kinchen closed the chapel packed series Wednesday by reading from the book of Micah and focusing on the familiar topic of re-gifting. How many people have been re-gifting Jesus? Kinchen asked. Our Lord does not deserve re-gifting in our lives or in our worship. Recorded versions of all of the chapel sermons are available at wfbu.com. Bethlehems 2012 Homecoming festivities began at 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, with the presentation of the middle school prince and princess nominees. Eighth grade nominees were: Josie Dampier, Kelsey En nger, Harlie Peters and Stevie Spivey for princess; Caleb Brannon, Dakota Potter, Mason Wallace and Brandon Wilson for prince. Kelsey En nger and Mason Wallace were crowned princess and prince. The high school Homecoming Court was then presented. Of the ve nominees for queen, senior Kaylin Grif n was crowned 2012 Homecoming Queen, and Devin Miller was crowned Homecoming King. Special recognition was afforded several people during this years Homecoming celebration. Sheila Richards introduced everyone to Kaylee Barton. Kaylee, who has proximal femoral focal de ciency, will be undergoing several surgeries in the future. She is the recipient of a very successful fundraiser A Walk for Kaylee that Bethlehems FCCLA sponsored. Kaylee and her family said they were appreciative of the support shown by the school and community. Wanda Pope was presented an iPad for her efforts in the fundraising event. Bethlehems athletic department presented lettermans jackets to Assistant Principal Donald Dady and former coach/ principal Jerry Dixon for their unswerving dedication to BHS athletic programs. Dixon commented that in all of his years of both playing ball and coaching, this was the rst lettermans jacket he ever had. The nights honored guest was Jackie Benton, former Bethlehem teacher. Benton is a life-long native of Holmes County. She attended Bethlehem High from rst through 11th grade and then transferred to Holmes County High School to take business courses, graduating with honors in 1956. Bentons family has seen four generations walk through the halls of Bethlehem. Her father, Valton Coates, was a member of Bethlehems rst graduating class in 1932, and her grandchildren currently attend. Beginning her career at BHS at age 33, Benton taught second grade for two years, then moved to third grade for many years before winding up in preKindergarten, retiring in 2001. During her tenure, she served as cheerleading sponsor and Pep Club sponsor from 1973-1977. She then gave up coaching to watch her own children cheer and play ball. Her daughter Sheila (who now teaches at BHS) commented, I cannot remember a basketball or softball game that she didnt attend as long as I played. Benton said she has always been a Wildcat at heart and showed it with her school spirit. Many of Mrs. Bentons students recall the sleepovers and Easter egg hunts held at her home. She welcomed students as though they were her own children with a warm, beautiful smile and a loving heart. She never hesitated to read the Bible and Bible stories to her students. Many times, someone passing by her classroom would see her in a rocking chair, sharing Gods Word with her students gathered around her. Mrs. Jackie Benton has sacri ced many hours for the sake of her students and family. She truly is the example of a teacher in every sense of the word and will remain in the memories of countless Bethlehem graduates for decades to come. Between the varsity games, alumni from the classes of 1942, 1952, 1962, 1972, 1982, 1992 and 2002 were recognized. The class of 1992 presented a marble bench in front of the school in memory of classmates who had passed away, Christy Wilkerson and Chris Yancey. Class members also presented Christys and Chriss families with plaques.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com The First Amendment of our Constitution says, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceable to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Please do me a favor and read this First Amendment at least ve times and then tell me why our government has for over 68 years been protecting and spending tons of money to spread the religions of Atheism and Agnosticism? For clarication, an Agnostic is a person who believes that nothing is known about the existence of God or about things outside the human experience. An Atheist believes there is no God. Now back to the reason for the question. For over 68 years, if not much longer, our government has promoted and protected this religion through our government school system, and some have twisted the words of our First Amendment to protect it. You see, Evolution and the Big Bang Theory have been taught in the science classes of our public schools all these years and our children have even been tested to make sure they understand this religion which was imagined in the mind of George Waterhouse Darwin, who was a racist and by his theory an atheist. Then, Thomas Huxley, an agnostic, advanced the acceptance of evolution among scientists and the public alike, even though there is no science or scientic proof for any of it. Thats right, no scientic proof! I believe a real scientist would actually laugh in the face of Darwin if he presented it in the world we live in today. So, why do our school boards continue to waste money purchasing books, and paying teachers to teach non-truths, that they themselves are not comfortable with? And why have museums wasted money to create the Nebraska man, which is supposed to be the link between man and monkey. When in actuality, the person who rst drew the Nebraska man drew him from one small tooth, which was later found to be the jawbone of a wild pig. If I could take a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle and throw it into a category three hurricane and when it landed it was all together and matted, I might think that it was worth taking our childrens valuable learning time to teach the possibilities of this ridiculous theory, that they might question whether there was a God or not. NOT!!! Because you and I both know, even if we did this experiment one-million times, not even two pieces would come together. So the truth of the matter is; it takes more faith to believe that this great universe just came together without a creator, than it does to believe that there is a God. To my understanding of things, since evolution is not a science and it is based on the beliefs of one person, it is a religion. A religion according to the subtitle of his Origin was The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life. The question you can simply ask is, who do you think Darwin tagged as the Unfavored races? So my question is; why is the ACLU and others so interested in preserving a religion, sponsored by our government, which is against the Constitution, and is racialist? And why are they afraid to share another view? After all, evolution is only a theory. Are they afraid that their religion of choice would not be accepted anymore, because it cannot pass the test of human questioning? The simple answer to all of these questions comes from the Bible which says, Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2 Thes. 2:9-12 KJV).

This Message Courtesy of Anonymous Acts of Kindness It is only natural for us to want to be recognized for our good deeds; however there is undoubtedly some thing even better in doing the occasional secret good both the giver and the receiver more than the gift of kindness that is performed with full recognition of who did it. The doer of a secret good deed will feel that there is something purer in their motive because they are not doing it to receive thanks or recognition, and this feeling is likely to raise the doers self-es teem. In addition, the person who receives the anony mous gift or act of kindness is likely to feel that the world is a kinder, friendlier place, with people out there whom they dont even know doing good deeds. There are lots of ways we can do a secret good deed. For example, paying the toll for the person behind us, or buying the couples tickets behind us in line at the movie theater. Other ideas may include putting money in expired meters, leaving some food or a gift for someone at work, or perhaps leaving a plate of goodies in someones desk who we know wont have time to go out for lunch. We should be creative do a secret good deed. There is really no end to the anonymous acts of kindness we can do, and it really will make us and the recipient feel great. The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself. New K.J.V. Proverbs 11:25 Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Page 4 Faith EVENTS By Rev. James L. Snyder I am rather oldfashioned in some areas of my life, which I do not intend to upgrade to current standards. I do not believe in changing something unless it really needs to be changed. A crazy phobia is going around these days suggesting that if something is old, it must not be any good and if it is new, it must be good. I think old Solomon was right when he said, there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJV). So, I am never intimidated by some new gizmo or gadget that comes down the line. One of the things I have no intention of upgrading is in the area of giving credit. I believe in giving credit where credit is due. After all, I need all the credit I can get these days. If somebody does something that blesses me, I am beholden to give them their due credit. I am under the opinion that if I give enough people enough credit that one day I just may be able to cash in. This all came to me this past week when I had my visit to the dentist. I make it a rule to visit my dentist once a decade whether I need to or not. The thing that spurred my visit to the dentist this time was one of my llings had fallen out. Actually, I am assuming it fell out because where it used to be was a hole in my tooth. Upon pondering the situation to its logical conclusion, I must have eaten my lling. This dental hygienic situation brought me to my latest visit with my dental hygienist. While I was there, I thought I would save time, if not money, and have my teeth cleaned. Every decade I like to have my teeth cleaned. According to my dentists records, the last time I had my teeth cleaned was 13 years ago. So, it is time. Because it was so long since my last visit with the dentist, he insisted on taking pictures of all my teeth. I hope to get copies so I can post it on my Facebook. After all, what would my Facebook be without pictures of teeth? I had forgotten the whole procedure of dental photography. It took an entire hour to photograph all my teeth one at a time. During the sixty minutes of my photography shoot, I had to keep my mouth open. I have never had my mouth open for so long in all my life. The upshot of my visit with the dentist was I had a clean bill of health regarding my teeth and gums. I must have been doing something right to have such healthy teeth and gums for a person my age. When the dentist said a person my age, I was not sure if he was insulting me or congratulating me for good health. Being the gentleman that I am, I took the latter. I dont know what youre doing, the dentist said cheerfully as I left his ofce, just keep it up. With that, I left the dentist ofce. I thought a lot about what he said and I have come to a major conclusion. I like giving credit where credit is due, so I had to think long and hard about whom to credit for my good dental health. Certainly, I could congratulate the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage on her superb dietary work in the kitchen. Without doubt, it pays to eat the right food if you are going to have good health. But I think it goes much further than this. What am I doing to credit such a good dental health report? Then it came to me. Have you ever given serious thought about something for so long, you seem to be getting nowhere, and then all of a sudden, it hits you? I know what I can credit my excellent dental health to. Apple Fritters. That is right. The reason I have good teeth and good gums is because of a consistent diet of Apple Fritters. After all, everybody knows the main ingredient of an Apple Fritter is an Apple. There is nothing better for a person than an Apple. Where the Fritter comes in is very simple. The Fritter part of an Apple Fritter is the means by which my body can assimilate the nutritional aspects of the Apple. The Fritter facilitates the good parts of the Apple to every part of my body. Therefore, with a deep sense of humility and gratefulness, I credit my dental health to the regular consumption of Apple Fritters. A friend of mine recently suggested that I might be addicted to Apple Fritters, but I kindly remonstrated him by explaining I am addicted to good dental health. My spiritual health is a different matter. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen (Jude 1:24-25 KJV). God gets all the credit in my life for my spiritual health now and forever.

BUMPY ROAD Rhythm housing development faces a Rhythm backers hope for harmonyBy Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The road leading to the proposed Rhythm development centered between U.S. 231 and State 77 is winding and bumpy, with smooth portions at times giving way to unexpected bumps and washouts. One can apply that description to the roads Florida Landings LLC is promising to pave, but it is also an accurate description of the four-year-long process to obtain a development order. Backers of the project hope that road smooths out and widens with key votes and public hearings this month, beginning with Thursdays Planning Commission meeting. The landowner has said we have no alternative but to call the question because of relationships and agreements we have that involve the landowner, the prospective developer and the nancial partner, said J. Scott Henderson of Henderson Planning Group LLC, representing Rhythm. We feel that we have answered all the questions, done everything weve been asked to do and then some. Rhythm is the name theyve given for an age-restricted community of 55 and older with 3,200 dwelling units and promising a small amount of commercial, of ce and retail for the communitys immediate needs.

Once the road becomes packed, orange dirt, the most prevalent traf c control devices are yellow signs warning of livestock crossing. There must have been some doubt about the earnestness of the warning, because a homemade white sign with shiny red letters reiterates the plea for careful driving on behalf of the animals. This is the kind of place where meeting an unfamiliar car on the road prompted Anthony Triolo, who has lived on Buckhorn Boulevard for 25 years, to roll down the window of his dirtecked white sedan and ask, Are ya lost? A proposed development of nearly 1,900 barren acres that would add more than 3,100 new homes would transform the sleepy no-mans land lying near the border of Bay and Jackson counties, residents universally agree. What they cant agree on is whether the addition of thousands of newcomers would serve as a stimulus to bring jobs and services to the area or destroy the tranquility and privacy residents Hello from the News new editor A4 Volume 88, Number 9INDEXArrests ..................................A3 Opinion .................................A4 Outdoors ...............................A6 Sports ...................................A7 Extra .....................................B1 Faith .....................................B4 Obituaries .............................B5 Classi eds .............................B6See BACKERS A2 See SITE A2

Since Feb. 29, 2008, Rhythm has worked for approval of its DRI, or Development of Regional Impact, which includes requirements for speci c and detailed plans on everything from how infrastructure will be supported to the effects on the environment. The DRI goes hand-in-hand with the needed development order and Planned Unit Development (PUD), with all three needing approval for the project to move forward. And there would prove to be three impediments to those plans: concerns over whether Rhythms wells will draw down nearby private wells, neighborhood opposition, and a lessthan-willing neighbor in Bay County, which has the road with the most direct access to the property.WATERThe water issues, Henderson said, should be settled given the reviews by the West Florida Regional Planning Council (WFRPC), the Florida Department of Transportation, the affected Water Management District, the local School District and a number of other agencies. The Rhythm DRI was submitted to the WFRPC in Pensacola on Feb. 29, 2008, and received WFRPC approval on Oct. 27, 2011, after all agency comments had been satis ed with three review cycles at each level. Washington County Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz said there was also a change that had to be made to the countys comprehensive plan to identify Rhythm as a PUD. A PUD is, essentially, another method of de ning how a piece of property may be used and includes speci c criteria. In Rhythms case, DeRuntz said, the PUD was re ned to include a 100-foot buffering zone to adjoining land and protected land, except for when joined to agriculture/silviculture, which would then be 50 feet. And it includes language that concerns water sheds, identifying spring sheds, both primary and secondary. Since water is such a precious resource, this includes the protection of water sheds, DeRuntz said, adding later, Weve got to protect our water. There are some areas with more sensitive recharge areas, and weve got to be especially careful in this area because most of the county is on wells.ROADSHenderson said he believes Bay County was reluctant to grant access via County Line Road, which runs directly to the project from U.S. 231, because of ongoing friction between Bay and Washington counties over test wells Bay has drilled to the west. He said Rhythm even offered to pave County Line Road up to and beyond county and state standards but was refused. Bay County of cials said the reluctance had more to do with feasibility than anything: there is not enough right-of-way to pave County Line Road to county and state standards, and the county would have to go to court to take that needed right-of-way from private property owners, which wasnt a viable alternative. So with the clock ticking, Rhythm turned back to Washington County with a plan to spend millions of dollars paving roads between the development and Chipley, mostly with federal grant money and at no cost to the county. The project supporters said the worst-case scenario is that the county gets millions of dollar in road improvements, even if Rhythm doesnt sell the rst unit. You never know when somethings going to help or hurt you, but in this case it could do nothing but help us, Washington County Engineer Cliff Knauer said during the previous BOCC meeting. Before, this project didnt address Washington County road and it wouldnt have been a bene t to us, but now it is. We rst addressed needing to do something about Buckhorn Boulevard in 1999 as well as that huge section in Quail Hallow. Knauer said paving those roads would bene t more than just this project. Its unbelievable how many people live down in that area and could bene t from these roads being paved, not to mention those are school bus routes, and itd save the district on maintenance needing to be done to those buses that have to go down those roads every day, Knauer said. With almost every aspect of this project, theyve gone above and beyond what is required.NEIGHBORSWith water and roads addressed, Henderson said there is little left to do to appease those who live near the project. Trying to get the neighborhood comfortable has been a challenge, he said. Thats probably the biggest issue we have right now, and the neighborhood isnt going to be satis ed. But DeRuntz said he knew the concerns of the residents and in many of the aspects shared them, given the history of the area. Everyone is concerned with the economy, and everyone is living with the memory of Sunny Hills, DeRuntz said. That project was done before the land-use requirements. It would have never own with the new standards. And key to this development, DeRuntz said, is that all the conditions set forth in the agreements stay with the land and the development, not the property owner. Whatever is approved now has to be honored no matter who ends up developing the property. If something happens and the property changes hands, the new owner would have to follow the same guidelines to the letter or else they will have to start all over again, which is exactly where the developers were in 2008, DeRuntz said.DEVELOPMENT ORDERBut the most pressing matter at the moment is the Development Order (DO). Without it, nothing happens. It represents an agreement between the developer and the county about how things are going to be developed, DeRuntz said. Thats why there are phases the development must work within so that they have to meet the requirements on their part in order to continue their development. DeRuntz said this is the biggest development to come to Washington County. With something this big, weve got to make sure they t into our comprehensive plan, DeRuntz said. The developer has met all the conditions. And one of the big conditions is that the road paving they have agreed to perform will be completed before units are built for Phase I, preparing the area for heavier traf c. This includes creating a new road called New Buckhorn Boulevard and paving Buckhorn Boulevard to Quail Hallow Boulevard, Quail Hallow Boulevard to Orange Hill Road and Orange Hill Road till it meets the latest in Florida Department of Transportation standards. Those parts of the road already paved will be repaved so that the entire stretch meets the latest in FDOT standards. Funding for this project is through an already approved Tiger III grant from the Department of Transportation. The developers have agreed to make up any shortfalls between that money and the actual cost of paving. After Thursdays meeting, developers will await a recommendation from the Washington County Planning Commission, which will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, at the Washington County Annex. From the Planning Commission, it goes before the Board of County Commissioners at 9 a.m. Feb. 16. If its approved by the BOCC then it goes to the Department of Community Affairs, and if its approved by the DCA then the developer will have to provide a DO submitting preliminary plans, permits from NFWMD with water consumption permits after extensive testing and studies; its a plethora of criteria that they must meet before they can move forward, DeRuntz said. A Facts Guide for a more extensive look into Rhythm was provided the developer and approved by DeRuntz. It will be available for viewing at www. chipleypaper.com under Rhythm Facts. currently enjoy. Im not for it; Ill tell you that, Triolo said about the Rhythm development being considered by Washington County. Triolo said hes been to three of the community meetings held about the proposed senior living development, and though theyve been informative, he said remains unconvinced the development would not degrade the quality of life in rural Washington County. The ve or six new wells the project calls for possibly could deplete the wells of others in the area and add unsustainable traf c to the narrow roads, he said.PrivacyMany residents in the area seem to value their privacy; homes are either set well back from the road or have fences and gates guarding their property. Steven Eaton said he has lived in the dirt-road area bordering the proposed project off and on for 15 years. The privacy brings him back. I like being out where I can shoot guns and no one bothers you, he said. Though some of his neighbors get pretty up in arms about it, August Duffy said he doesnt hate the idea of some development coming to the neighborhood bringing more people, a hotel and some of ce space. Maybe itll get the roads paved, he said. People have this idea 2,000 houses are going to go up overnight; thats not going to happen. Duffy said he attended some of community meetings, but at least one dissolved into anger. Most people around here are dead set against it, and they get pretty heated, he said. The best source of information is the Quail Hollow General Store, Duffy said. The small store carries all the necessity of rural life snacks, drinks and news. I dont think I know one person up here thats in favor of it, cashier Rebecca Wiser said from behind the counter. Its just the way of life out here. Wiser said she moved to Washington County from The Villages in central Florida in an effort to get away from sprawling development that targets retirees. Despite the public resistance, Wiser said she gets the impression the Rhythm proposal will become a reality soon enough. They are going to railroad it through, she said. I feel that theres no stopping development. The development would bring an economic boost, though, said customer Debbie Dykes, who lives a few miles away near Sunny Hills. It could bring jobs for locals and attract new investment, she said. A lot of the people that are laying-low criminals are going to have to move out, she added. The jobs would be nice, Wiser said, but theres no guarantee outsider help wouldnt be brought in instead. I moved up here to get away from all that, she said. BACKERS from page A1 SITE from page A1

Hope to see you all there. Floridians are getting back to workBy Gov. Rick ScottWe recently learned Floridas unemployment rate decreased in December to 9.9 percent, down for the fourth straight month. Thats a 2.1percent drop in points in a year. For the rst time in two-and-a-half years, Floridas unemployment number is in single digits. These numbers provide clear evidence Floridas economy is moving in the right direction. But most importantly, these numbers mean Floridians who didnt have jobs one year ago are now able to nd jobs. I am committed to working to make Florida the best place to start, grow or move a business so that every Floridian who wants a job has the opportunity to get to work. As one of the nations leaders in job creation, Florida totaled 141,500 private-sector jobs last year. Thats almost 12,800 new jobs every month. In December alone, Florida added more than 5,000 private-sector jobs at a rate of more than 12 jobs for every job that was lost as local, state and federal governments trimmed their workforce in order to live within their means. Floridas lower unemployment rate is proof businesses, not governments, create jobs, and it is Floridians who deserve the credit. With the help of the Legislature, I am committed to making changes that continue moving Florida in the right direction. I am focused on streamlining government, removing barriers to job creation, eliminating burdensome regulations and keeping the cost of living as low for families and businesses. There still is much work to be done. We must build on our success and ensure the short-term and longterm success of Floridas businesses. Our achievements must serve as a platform for attracting new businesses to Florida from around the world. I have no doubt Florida can be the No. 1 destination for global business. To achieve that goal, we must have the best educated workforce with the skills necessary to compete in our 21st century global economy. A good education is essential to getting a good job, so I have proposed adding $1 billion for K-12 education. This is the third largest amount of state funding for K-12 in the past decade. To ensure we do not let the children of our state down, I will not sign any budget into law that does not contain signi cantly more state dollars for education than we had last year. The Florida House of Representatives shares my vision and has allocated more than $1 billion for education. I am grateful for their support for the young people of our state. Another step that will make Florida a better place for business is to make sure we focus on the transportation projects that are best for Florida. Preparing Floridas ports for increased trade from the expanded Panama Canal and free trade agreements will ensure Florida is a global trading hub and attract businesses to our state from across the world. Florida already is the top tourist destination, and we are well on our way to being the leading place for business. We are making great progress in the Sunshine State, and I look forward to working closely with the Legislature to identify ways to ensure that every Floridian that wants a job, can get one. I remain focused on three things: making sure Floridas children can receive a good education, making sure that Floridians can nd a job and keeping the cost of living low in our state. Please share your ideas with me by emailing Rick.Scott@eog. my orida.com. Working together, we can get Florida back to work!

Call 638-0212. Article highlights high school accomplishmentsMy 1944 Vernon High School classmate Frederick Kolmetz rates high on the list as one of the most faithful readers of Perrys Prattle, which is now approaching its ninth anniversary. Frederick has told me many of his experiences in grammar school at Pleasant Grove School, teachers he remembers, the discipline they administered and some of the profound teachings that many of the teachers imparted to the students. Recently, my classmate brought me a packet of materials containing an article written by Ken Yarbor in the April 2010 edition of Street Talk. His subject was the school at Hinson Cross Roads, of cially named Pleasant Grove School. Thanks to the author, Ken Yarbor and the publisher, Kelley Ward, for their approval in using some of that material for this story. Ken Yarbor and wife, Stella, are retired educators from Bay County. Ken has family ties in the Hinson Cross Roads community of Washington County, where they now live. When Ken became impressed to write some history spotlighting Pleasant Grove School, he immediately called Gertrude Dunn Weaver, whom he knew had a long and colorful career in the teaching profession in Washington County. He learned that retired Gertrude Weaver began school at Pleasant Grove in 1927 and graduated from the eighth grade in 1934. She reported that an average of 60 students, in grades one through eight, were taught in the fourroom, bungalow style building. It was built on land acquired from Mrs. Anne Hood in 1926 and welcomed its rst students in the Fall of that year. Drinking water was obtained from the open well of Mrs. Hood. The rst principal of the school was a Mrs. Wyatt. Others include George Moore, Mr. Sellars, Cary Fleming, Jennie McKeithen, Olga Hardy, James F. (Jim) Russ Sr., Olive Berry, Rex Yates, Auburn Hood, Johnny Jenkins, J. V. Ross and R. I. Roche Sr. Teachers recalled by Mrs. Weaver from the earlier years are listed as Lillian Fleming, Iris Worthington, Mary Hiley, Mamie Evans, Mary Russ, Carlton Brock, Verna Fleming, Margie McCrary, Ola Hood, Auburn Hood, Jessie Hinson, Katie McDonnell, Myrtice Smith, Fitzhugh Carter, Burton Farrell, Ottis Pippin, Lillie Bell Worthington, Belle Sapp and Ada Pate. Some of the teachers lived with families in the community. Mary Hiley Remington, now 97 and living in North Carolina, boarded with the John Lee family and continues to maintain contact with Teresa Lee Duke, daughter of the Lees. She also wrote extensively for the Heritage of Washington Book, published in 2006. She does not recall discipline ever being a problem in the school and recalls that teachers always had full cooperation from parents. Heat for the school building was provided by wood burning heaters, which made for extreme heat or extreme cold and also allowed for unpleasant smoke to permeate the room if not burning properly. In addition to the school trustees duties of hiring teachers, they were also responsible for purchasing wood for heat. Ken Yarbor reports that present residents of Hinson Cross Roads, Rev. Leon Jenkins, pastor of New Bethany Assembly of God Church there, Horace Anderson and Mrs. Merle Osment, continue to fondly remember their experiences as Pleasant Grove School students. The school principal would use a hand-held bell to call students to their classrooms. Teachers would start school each morning with a devotional, a pledge to the ag and the singing of patriotic songs. Most students brought lunches in paper bags. After eating, they were allowed to remain outside until the principal rang the bell, signaling the time to return to class. Most students walked to and from school. Others rode horse drawn wagons and a few rode automobiles. Two school buses served the school with Tom Morrell and Harvey Hinson delivering elementary pupils to Pleasant Grove School and to Vernon with High School. The 1932 rst graduating class of Vernon High School consisted of all graduates of Pleasant Grove School. They were Carmel Brock, Ola Hood, Ethel Smith and Mary Yates. Gertrude Weaver returned to Pleasant Grove to teach in 1941 after graduating from Vernon High School in 1938. She remained there until 1946, serving as principal of the school in the 1945-46 school term. This ladys career in teaching in Washington County Schools is legendary. Many fond memories have been expressed of the good ole days at Pleasant Grove School by former students and the host of teachers who worked there. A follow-up article is planned next week on New Prospect School near Caryville.New editor joins staffThe more things change, the more they stay the same. A year ago, I was managing editor of the Washington County Newspapers not in Florida, but in Washington County, Ark. As of Monday, my job title became managing editor of Washington County News and the Holmes County Times-Advertiser, but while the title is the same, my latitude changed quite a bit. My wife and I packed up and moved to Chipley this past weekend so I could take the position as managing editor of Washington County News and Holmes County Times-Advertiser. In a nutshell, I began my journalism career in high school, then after a stint in the Navy, I returned to Arkansas State University for my degree in journalism. I have worked as editor at weekly papers in Eureka Springs, Ark., Dumas, Ark., and of course in Washington County. The paper was in the city of Lincoln, population 2,100. I began the process of moving to the Tri-County area back before Christmas, but the holidays slowed down the process and I wasnt able to see Chipley until early January when I ew down to visit. It was pretty much love at rst sight for me, and I couldnt wait until I was bringing my better half, Shannon, down to see this region. I kept trying to come up with an Arkansas correlation, but there wasnt really anything quite to match Chipley. To this newbie, the city has a quiet, beach-like charm in the architecture and a grand sense of southern hospitality. Spanish moss and palm trees are the biggest tip off I am not in Arkansas any more. Washington County, Ark., is home to the city of Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas, which of course is home to the Arkansas Razorbacks, which is the states No. 1 team. The Hogs did very well in the SEC this past season. My alma mater is Arkansas State University, however, which is in northeast Arkansas and is home to the Red Wolves, which play in the Sun Belt Conference. Everyone I have met so far in my three-day residency here has been very gregarious Sunday night we dined at KFC and I was impressed with one of the young ladies behind the counter who is planning a new career as a nurse, beginning her training this week at Washington-Holmes Technical Center. I havent gotten to explore much of Holmes County yet, although I came down from Montgomery via U.S. Highway 231 so I got to see much of the countryside. Still, I have yet to get to come meet many residents. If you see me out and about feel free to stop and say hello, I am looking forward to meeting as many folks as I can and becoming a part of the community. My philosophy on community newspapers such as ours is that the newspaper is the collective story of not only the city or the county government, but its the story of all of us, and I am looking forward to telling as many of our stories as possible. Since I am new here, I am asking for your help in telling the Tri-County story. Email me at rseyler@chipleypaper.com about your lives Im interested in everything. Jobs, hobbies, churches and church happenings, county history If you think it should be in the paper, drop me a note or give me a call 638-0212. Im looking forward to reading, and writing, about you.PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor, Im ashamed to be a card-carrying member of the Republican Party. Are Romney and Gingrich the best we can put up as our nominee? Do we, as a party, really feel that the lesser of two evils is the best way to select a Presidential candidate? Our debates have deteriorated to an endless, pointless, barrage of mud-slinging; never any real detailed debate over issues. This really depresses me. Mr. O must be loving it, as he will have all the mud he needs when it comes to mud-slinging time in November.Bill Ford BonifayGOP needs to step up presidential nominations if we want a true change in leadership RANDAL SEYLEREditor

At 16, Cutts began raising queens to sell. This grew into a business in which he produced and sold honey and provided bees for pollination for various crops in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. He worked in this business until 1985, when he accepted a position with the state of Florida overseeing the states apiary inspections. During his employment with the state, the varroa mite and small hive beetle were creating major problems for beekeepers throughout the state. Laurence was instrumental in bringing the need for research to reduce beehive losses to the forefront. Throughout his tenure with the state, he was always accessible to both commercial and independent beekeepers with unlimited advice and direction. A commercial beekeeper with more than 8,000 hives once remarked that without Cutts, he would have lost everything. He recently invented and is marketing a new beetle trap through various bee supply companies in the United States. This trap promises to be a better deterrent for the small hive beetle. Laurence was known as a leader in the states beekeeping industry and as such was a much sought-after speaker and teacher. Because of his leadership, determination and experience, Florida remains a leader in agricultural production. Without honey bees pollinating Florida crops, this state would be unable to produce the quantity and quality of various agricultural products it does today.Local beekeeper inducted into Agricultural Hall of Fame LAURENCE PAUL CUTTS TALLAHASSEE (AP) U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland says he will le a bill in Congress that would put pressure on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to adopt state rather than federal water pollution rules for Florida. The Panama City Republican announced his plans Monday on the steps of Floridas old Capitol. The legislation would prohibit the EPA from adopting its own rules for Florida if the agency administrator determines state rules meet requirements of the federal Water Pollution Control Act. It would not affect other states. Our bill reinforces the bipartisan work being accomplished in the Florida Legislature to ensure that no one has greater control in determining the health of our waterways than ourselves, Southerland said. Environmentalists contend the states proposed rules setting numeric nutrient standards for phosphorous and nitrogen in lakes, streams and other water bodies would be too weak to prevent or clean up toxic algae choking Floridas waterways. The nutrients are contained in such pollutants as sewage, manure and fertilizer. Agriculture, business and utility interests back the states version. They contend the tougher federal rules would be too expensive to implement. We are not trying to reduce or to undermine the requirements in the Clean Water Act, Southerland said. Were just saying when we meet those standards, acknowledge those standards and do not single us out for a stiffer standard that does not apply to the other 49 states. A nonbinding provision in the proposed legislation also would express the sense of Congress that the EPA should take into account the economic effect of numeric nutrient criteria when deciding which set of rules to adopt. That includes not promulgating or enforcing any criteria that would result in a negative economic impact of 15 percent on any such sector. The legislation might be too late to affect the EPAs decision on rules for inland waters, which is expected by March. The agency, though, says it may agree to another delay if the state needs more time to implement the rules. The implementation date already has been delayed for 15 months. The EPA also is developing separate rules for coastal areas. They currently are scheduled for adoption in November.Southerland to le water pollution bill

OUTDoo OO RS Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Can you believe it? Spanish mackerel in January? Most every year in March everyone goes to bed like a kid excitingly waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas Day, except in this case these shermen are waiting for the spring run of Spanish mackerel. This year the wait was over sort of early. A whole two months to be exact. On both big piers, the city and M.B. Miller, Spanish mackerel were caught this past week. I wouldnt put too much stock in the fact it appears they have arrived early this year, because they are just holdovers from last year. If we ever get some cold weather it will drive down the water temperature and they will be as hard to nd as your brother-in-law who owes you money. Another sh that is a holdover from last year is the pompano. They have been catching pompano off the beaches all winter. These pompano arent the biggest ones I have seen, but you should not have to measure them. When Phillips Inlet opened recently thousands of juvenile pompano emptied into the Gulf. Im sure some of the pompano being caught are some of those. These pompano have been trapped in the inlet since summer waiting to get back to the Gulf. The old reliable whiting also are biting in certain spots on the beach including the cement piers. Redsh seem to come and go as they please and a few are being caught when they pass under the piers. I have noticed that normally a redsh caught from a boat has to be more than 18 inches and under 27 inches. Not so it seems if caught off the beach. If it can t in the cooler or even if it cant it never seems to nd its way back to the water. At least not with the crew shing down my way. Another sh that is being caught and seen under the piers is sheepshead, another March sh. They also are caught beginning in March when they come to spawn around the jetties and wrecks in shallow water. I know the Gulf is warm for January, but water temperature is not the only factor that pushes these sh to spawn. The length of the day or amount of sunlight also is an indicator. If you are tired of sitting in the woods and not seeing a deer, pick up the rod go shing. At least until it turns cold again.Hooked on Outdoors & Brought home a big buck or sh?

Hunters are able to be more selective in which deer to remove from the herd.By Stan KirklandFWC Deer hunters love to reminisce about past hunting seasons and big deer some that got away and others that now adorn their walls. What hunters new to the sport might not realize is how much deer hunting has changed, particularly in Florida, over the past three to four decades. Going back even further, whitetailed deer were practically eliminated from Florida in the early 1900s because of over exploitation, eradication efforts in South Florida associated with the cattle fever tick, and losses to the screwworm. It wasnt until the 50s and 60s that deer were stocked by the then-Game and Freshwater Fish Commission in various places and deer populations began to rebuild. This also was aided by increased enforcement of game laws. When deer hunting seasons resumed in the 50s and 60s, most hunters hunted deer the only way anyone in the South knew how with hounds. They used mostly walker hounds and sometimes beagles. Every hunter wanted dogs with a good nose, dogs that would cold trail and bark when the deer jumped. If all went according to plan, the deer ran by members of the hunting party on stand. They shot at the bucks and the does went by untouched. At least that was the plan. When Floridas human population was relatively low in the 1960s and 70s, deer dog incursions on private property were infrequent enough that deer dog hunting continued unabated. The 80s and 90s however, brought change. As Floridas population increased and more and more people moved to rural areas, complaints about deer dog hunting increased. In response, the GFC prohibited the hunting groups from taking stands on most roads across the state, whether they were county-maintained dirt roads or paved highways. Beginning in 2005, hunting parties were required to register their hunting lands with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, a move to show the landowner was okay with deer dog hunting on their property. The changes in deer dog hunting in Florida and other Southern states loosely corresponded to an upsurge in deer still-hunting. Still-hunting usually involved a hunter in a tree stand or in a ground blind waiting for a deer to pass. Today, deer dog hunting is still alive and well on private lands, albeit not to the extent as years past, and on public areas managed by the FWC. However, the majority of deer hunters now are still-hunters. Every outdoors TV program about deer hunting features still-hunting. At the same time, hunters and landowners today are more interested in managing their deer. Theyve learned they can generally support so many deer on the property and they work with the FWC to remove both does and mature bucks. The proof that deer management is working in Florida is the incredible number of above-average bucks measured for the Florida Buck Registry.

SP O RTS www.chipleypaper.comWednesday, February 1, 2012 APage 7SectionBy Jason ShootFlorida Freedom Newspapers PONCE DE LEON Tim Alford, as should be expected, saw signs for concern long before his players did. Now in his 17th season coaching the Ponce de Leon girls basketball team, Alford watched his players head into the holiday break with a 14-0 record. Two stunning losses at a tournament in Freeport in late December, however, stripped away a layer of overcon dence that Alfords players now readily admit was hindering the team. You can tell there is a big difference between the beginning of the year and where we are now, senior point guard Kate Carroll said. Those two losses during Christmas break got our attention. The Pirates havent lost since, rolling up a 21-2 record this season, including a 10-0 run through District 3-1A. Everything was different, junior Jordan Thomas said of bouncing back from losses against Cookeville (Tenn.) and Paxton. You could tell a whole lot changed. We were all on the same page, and its easier playing that way. You could watch our tapes (early in the season), and you could tell our defense was getting worse. Defense is our main priority. Like coach Alford said, Defense never lets you down. Our shots will fall. If PDL advances out of the District 3-1A tournament set to begin on Monday in Cottondale, it will extend a streak of seven consecutive years that the Pirates have reached regional play in the postseason. Since the 2004-05 season, PDL has quali ed for two state semi nals, one regional nal, three regional semi nals and one regional quarter nal. Ask Alfords players about that string of success and theyll give you myriad answers that all nd their way back to the same central gure: Tim Alford. Two key gures on this years Pirates team, Thomas and fellow junior Ashley Harper, once had reasons not to play basketball for Alford. That was before they got to know him, of course. Coach Alford, I consider him one of my best friends, said Thomas, who lives minutes away from Walton High in DeFuniak Springs but makes the daily trip for school at PDL. I can talk to him about anything. Harpers older sister, Hillary, capped her own remarkable career in a Pirates uniform last year. Growing up behind her, Ashley was cognizant that expectations consequently would be higher for her, too. It felt like I was following in her footsteps, Harper said. I didnt want to play basketball because of that. I didnt want to be compared to her. Harper said she changed her tune after she saw how Hillary interacted with Alford on and off the court. Alfords in uence was a positive one, and Harper decided she would try to carve her own path on the basketball court at PDL. Hes always on me about being lazy or not doing something right, Harper said behind a smile and a laugh. He didnt take it easy on me. Alford has bene ted from Ponce de Leons long-standing merger of the towns middle school and high school. He knows what sort of player he has coming down the pipeline as much as three years before that player has entered her rst varsity game. Im fortunate theyre on our campus in sixth grade, Alford said. Everything they do in middle school is leading up to what will eventually happen (on varsity). Its not as advanced, but the things we want them to know, they get early. Jazz Flock, a 6-foot senior who can play in the post and step out and knock down shots from the perimeter, arrived at PDL in eighth grade. An Indiana native, Flock joined Carroll as ninth-graders on the Pirates varsity squad. He calls it out, Flock said, and we know exactly what to do. Flocks all-around game gives the Pirates options on offense that most other Class 1A schools cant duplicate. She can back down smaller players into the post, and she can take taller, slower players outside, where she can hoist a jumper or take her defender off the dribble. Flocks emergence as a go-to player offensively was made more important when the teams expected starter at shooting guard, Jaicee Mayo, tore a knee ligament in the nal practice before the season began. Carroll also is a stabilizing force on the oor, offering a wheelbarrow full of experience and leadership. Its a big obligation, Carroll said of living up to the programs past success, which includes two state titles. De nitely expectations are always high. But its not just the pressure of the past we put on ourselves. Its this year, too. The Pirates are hopeful they will get another shot at Paxton, which plays in District 1-1A and beat PDL 49-36 on Dec. 30. If those teams do square off again, theyll meet in the Class 1A state semi nals with a berth in the championship game at stake. The Pirates, as they learned once (or twice) from their two defeats, are aware that considerable work remains before that opportunity potentially presents itself. Before we lost we thought we could get by with anything, Harper said. We went out there thinking we had it. When we got beat we realized we have to start working hard. Its been tough, but its been worth it. Added Carroll: I cant say for sure where were going. ... But well work for it every day. PDL focus strong for postseason By Cathrine LambEditorial Assistant Clamb@chipleypaper.com Danica Sue Patrick, better known to NASCAR fans as simply Danica, was born on March 25, 1982, in Beloit, WI. She now lives in Phoenix, Ariz., with her husband. Even though she is not the only woman to have been in NASCAR she is one of the few. The rst was Louise Smith which won more than 30 races in the 1940a. Danica started her career at the age of 10 Kart Racing. She was the rst woman to lead at the Indy 500 in 2009. Danica will be running 10 races in the #10 car in the Sprint Cup Series for Stewart-Hess Racing, and fulltime in the #7 Go Daddy car for JR Motor Sports. Patrick has announced that she will be taking a year off from the Indy 500 so she will be able to race in the Coke 400 the two races are being run on the same day. In her personal life she says she will drive anything fast and black, but she dose her errands in a Acura MDX. Danicas hobbies are working out, traveling, nice dinners and laughing.

WINTER STATS By PAT McCANNSports Editor | pmccann@pcnh.com 747-5068 | Twitter: @patmccann Nobody wants to enter a tournament feeling like theyre playing for second place. Three schools in next weeks District 2-3A boys soccer pairing at Arnold couldnt be blamed for adopting that mantra. Choctawhatchee, last years state runner-up in Class 4A, is the overwhelming favorite in the fourschool district that begins on Tuesday. The Indians were cruising along at 17-2 late last week while Arnold was 4-11-4 and Rutherford 3-7-3. The fact the host Marlins edged the Rams in a recent game dropped Rutherford to the No. 4 seed and a firstround collision with Choctawhatchee. Arnold faces Milton, 4-12-0. Choctaw, who took second place in their 4A state run last year, look unstoppable now that they have been dropped into 3A play. Arnold coach Rick Sylvester said. There is no question Choctaw is, far and away the best team in the district and maybe in North Florida. Rutherford has a daunting task meeting them in their opening game. The Marlins have struggled through their worst season in Sylvesters nine years guiding the program. Having faced a great deal of adversity this year, and sporting the worst record since I have been coaching here, we are clinging to the hope that we can beat Milton and somehow make a go of it in the final, Sylvester said. With very limited forces left after a long season of attrition, the odds are certainly against us, but we are hoping that we can make the best of our beautiful facility and put on a respectable show at home. Bay fashioned a 10-0-0 district record to earn the first seed in District 1-2A, that tournament at Walton in DeFuniak Springs. Tornadoes coach Ron Houpt knows that anything can happen in the playoffs witnessed by his teams deep run last winter. Bay, 13-6-3, by far looks like the best bet on paper to advance of any county squad. This district tournament has had many surprises in the past, Houpt said. We will focus on not letting that happen to us. We will play one game at a time and treat it as the most important game we will play this year. Actually it will be. We started off slowly this year and have made adjustments in the last month and are now ready to make a playoff run. We have had many injuries during the season, but now seem to all be healthy. Mosley, 10-6-1, lost a tiebreaker with Lincoln for the No. 3 seed in 2-4A which could become pivotal as it knocked the Dolphins into Mondays play-in game. The ramifications were made more severe by the winner of that game advancing to meet top-seeded Chiles in one of Wednesdays semifinals. Leon and Lincoln meet in the other. Its a tough road to advance because we will face Chiles in the semi, who defeated us three times during the season, Mosley coach Dave Skakal said. If, however, we can beat Columbia for the fourth time we are optimistic because we played very well against Chiles the last time we saw them. Anything is possible in a district tournament. Port St. Joe posted a 4-1-1 record during the regular season against 1-1A opponents, with a pair of lopsided victories against first-round opponent Freeport. The top-seeded Tiger Sharks are 13-2-1 overall. We will be entering districts this year with a confident, but cautious nature, coach Gary Hindley said. We got a bit out of sorts during the holiday break, but our last several regularseason games were back on track.Boys soccer postseason starts next week ANDREW JOHNSON | The News HeraldArnolds Thomas McDaniel scored two goals in the Marlins 2-1 win over Rutherford recently.All times CSTDistrict 1-1A at Rocky Bayou Tuesday, Jan. 24: Port St. Joe vs. Freeport 6 p.m., Rocky Bayou vs. Franklin County 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27: Semifinal winners 7 p.m. District 1-2A at Walton Monday, Jan. 23: Marianna vs. Bozeman 5 p.m., South Walton vs. Walton 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25: Bay vs. Marianna-Bozeman winner 5 p.m., Pensacola Catholic vs. South Walton-Walton winner 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27: Semifinal winners 7 p.m. District 2-3A at Arnold Tuesday, Jan. 24:Arnold vs. Milton 5 p.m., Choctawhatchee vs. Rutherford 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27: Semifinals winners 7 p.m. District 2-4A at Chiles Monday, Jan. 23: Mosley vs. Lake City Columbia 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25: Leon vs. Lincoln 4 p.m., Mosley-Columbia winner vs. Chiles 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27: Semifinal winners 6 p.m. DISTRICTSCHEDULES Mosleys Grant named to Ray Guy Prokicker.com All-American team The News Herald LYNN HAVEN Mark Grant of Mosley was among the inaugural Ray Guy Prokicker.com High School All-Americans for some of the nations top punting, kicking, kickoff and long-snapping prospects. Players were selected from the Prokicker.com staff, which watched and coached the players during camps, and also by how the players performed on the field during the 2011 high school season. There were four All-America categories punting, kicking, long-snapping and kickoff specialist. Grant was named honorable mention in the kickoff specialist category. He had 32 touchbacks among 42 kickoffs for the Dolphins, and an average of 64.3 yards per kickoff. Grant also had 36 points on four field goals and 24 extra points. Ray Guy is considered the greatest punter in NFL history. Pat McCann Duderstadt leads Tsunamis: Michael Duderstadt claimed high-point honors in the Senior Boys division with four victories, and the Panama City Swim Team placed third in the GPAC Winter Invitational Jan. 13-15 in Pensacola. PCST competed with 37 swimmers against more than 400 swimmers from 14 teams from Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Duderstadt won individual races in the 50-yard backstroke, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke and 200 individual medley. Kari Troia (11-12 girls) won two races, the 50 and 100 breaststroke to finish third in high-point scoring in her age group. Three other Tsunami swimmers won one race. Kyla Hallam (11-12 girls) won the 50 freestyle, Hannah Retherford (13-14 girls) won the 50 butterfly, and Chad McGuire (13-14 boys) won the 200 breaststroke. The Tsunamis will compete at the Mac Crutchfield Invitational in Tallahassee on Jan. 27-29.

This eld trip was both educational and enjoyable. Select cadets were chosen to attend the adventure and were asked to take notes on all the historical facts that they passed by on their tour of the ship. The U.S.S. Alabama was built in 1940. The ship, from stem to stern, is 680 feet long and 108 feet wide. The guns were 16 inches in diameter and shoot a 2,700 pound projectile loaded with 900 pounds of gun powder. The ship itself was a small city; containing doctors of ces, dentist of ces, a Brig, isolation room, laundry room, chow hall, Ice Cream Parlor, Bakery and of course, a sick bay. In addition, we boarded the U.S.S. Drum, the submarine on display with the ship. On board the submarine, there was barely any space to move around. Every inch of the walls was covered in dials, levers, switches and tubes. All in all, the eld trip was an amazing experience. The cadets in attendance had a great time and learned a lot. Maj. Kuneman said the ship is, incredible, and you just have to go see it to believe it.Yellow Jacket Battalion eld trip to U.S.S.

We are here to provide the tools needed to educate others so we can all be more prepared for when a wildland re strikes.Wednesday, February 1 2012Ready, Set, Go is coming More on Ready, Set, Go!Right: Brian Goddin, Wild re Mitigation Specialist/Public Information Of cer for Holmes and Washington County introduced everyone to the Ready, Set, Go program scheduled for introduction to the surrounding counties.CECILIA SPEARS The Ready, Set, Go! Program seeks to develop and improve the dialogue between re departments and the residents they serve. Engaging in this dialogue is particularly important for the re service, because national studies have shown that re ghters are uniquely respected in their communities and can project a trusted voice to the public preparedness appeal. They can also explain what re resources are available during an event and the role that individuals can play in preparedness and early evacuation if called for by their local of cials to increase the safety of residents and responding re ghters to a wildland re. The RSG Program works in complimentary and collaborative fashion with Firewise and other existing wildland re public education efforts. It ampli es their preparedness messages to individuals to better achieve the common goal we all share of re-adapted communities. When re ghters encourage residents to take personal responsibility for preparing their property and family for WUI/wildland re, residents become an active part of the solution to the problem of increasing re losses. Ready Preparing for the Fire Threat: Be Ready, Be Firewise. Take personal responsibility and prepare long before the threat of a wildfire so your home is ready in case of a fire. Create defensible space by clearing brush away from your home. Use fire-resistant landscaping and harden your home with fire-safe construction measures. Assemble emergency supplies and belongings in a safe spot. Make sure all residents residing within the home are on the same page, plan escape routes. For more information about how to be Ready for wildland fires, go to Firewise. org Set Situational Awareness When a Fire Starts: Pack your vehicle with your emergency items. Stay aware of the latest news from local media and your local fire department for updated information on the fire. Go Leave early!

Wednesday, February 1, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3President Thomas A. Kinchen offered an inspirational start to the spring semester chapel services at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville on Monday, Jan. 16, with his chapel series entitled The After Christmas Specials. Kinchen welcomed new BCF students, recognized the Lady Eagles volleyball team for their outstanding season, and began the Monday morning chapel service by asking the question, After Christmas, the presents, wrapping, and decorations, where do you nd Jesus? Referencing the book of Luke, Kinchen read the account of a young Jesus missing from His family. After searching, He was found in the temple listening and speaking with the teachers. Where was Jesus? He was about His Fathers work. Folks today are frantically searching for Jesus, Kinchen said. Its pretty easy to nd Him. Just go where Gods work is being done, where His word is being proclaimed in truth, and where Gods people are worshipping, working, and ministering. BCF students and faculty were reminded not to misplace Jesus in the chaotic holiday season and in their everyday lives. Tuesdays chapel service continued with Kinchen illustrating the typical hinting season of Christmas. For example, people spend months before Christmas hinting to others what they are hoping to receive as gifts. Many times though, people arent satis ed with their presents. It may not t or doesnt work exactly how they planned. Kinchen also observed that around Christmas time, Christians are adamant about wanting to keep Christ in Christmas. But do they really want Him? Its okay if Hes a little plastic Jesus. Its okay if Hes warmed by a little 20-watt light bulb in a convenient cardboard manger with some imported hay. Thats okay. He doesnt bother us much there, does He? Its even okay if Hes the little lost boy in the temple, or a healing Savior, touching those in desperate need. But do we really want Christ in Christmas when Hes cleansing the temple and we know there are dirty places in our lives? Do we really want Him interrupting our plans? Kinchen closed the chapel packed series Wednesday by reading from the book of Micah and focusing on the familiar topic of re-gifting. How many people have been re-gifting Jesus? Kinchen asked. Our Lord does not deserve re-gifting in our lives or in our worship. Recorded versions of all of the chapel sermons are available at wfbu.com. Bethlehems 2012 Homecoming festivities began at 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, with the presentation of the middle school prince and princess nominees. Eighth grade nominees were: Josie Dampier, Kelsey En nger, Harlie Peters and Stevie Spivey for princess; Caleb Brannon, Dakota Potter, Mason Wallace and Brandon Wilson for prince. Kelsey En nger and Mason Wallace were crowned princess and prince. The high school Homecoming Court was then presented. Of the ve nominees for queen, senior Kaylin Grif n was crowned 2012 Homecoming Queen, and Devin Miller was crowned Homecoming King. Special recognition was afforded several people during this years Homecoming celebration. Sheila Richards introduced everyone to Kaylee Barton. Kaylee, who has proximal femoral focal de ciency, will be undergoing several surgeries in the future. She is the recipient of a very successful fundraiser A Walk for Kaylee that Bethlehems FCCLA sponsored. Kaylee and her family said they were appreciative of the support shown by the school and community. Wanda Pope was presented an iPad for her efforts in the fundraising event. Bethlehems athletic department presented lettermans jackets to Assistant Principal Donald Dady and former coach/ principal Jerry Dixon for their unswerving dedication to BHS athletic programs. Dixon commented that in all of his years of both playing ball and coaching, this was the rst lettermans jacket he ever had. The nights honored guest was Jackie Benton, former Bethlehem teacher. Benton is a life-long native of Holmes County. She attended Bethlehem High from rst through 11th grade and then transferred to Holmes County High School to take business courses, graduating with honors in 1956. Bentons family has seen four generations walk through the halls of Bethlehem. Her father, Valton Coates, was a member of Bethlehems rst graduating class in 1932, and her grandchildren currently attend. Beginning her career at BHS at age 33, Benton taught second grade for two years, then moved to third grade for many years before winding up in preKindergarten, retiring in 2001. During her tenure, she served as cheerleading sponsor and Pep Club sponsor from 1973-1977. She then gave up coaching to watch her own children cheer and play ball. Her daughter Sheila (who now teaches at BHS) commented, I cannot remember a basketball or softball game that she didnt attend as long as I played. Benton said she has always been a Wildcat at heart and showed it with her school spirit. Many of Mrs. Bentons students recall the sleepovers and Easter egg hunts held at her home. She welcomed students as though they were her own children with a warm, beautiful smile and a loving heart. She never hesitated to read the Bible and Bible stories to her students. Many times, someone passing by her classroom would see her in a rocking chair, sharing Gods Word with her students gathered around her. Mrs. Jackie Benton has sacri ced many hours for the sake of her students and family. She truly is the example of a teacher in every sense of the word and will remain in the memories of countless Bethlehem graduates for decades to come. Between the varsity games, alumni from the classes of 1942, 1952, 1962, 1972, 1982, 1992 and 2002 were recognized. The class of 1992 presented a marble bench in front of the school in memory of classmates who had passed away, Christy Wilkerson and Chris Yancey. Class members also presented Christys and Chriss families with plaques. Bethlehem celebrates Homecoming 2012BCF President preaches the After Christmas SpecialsSUBMITTED PHOTOSBCF President Thomas A.

FAITH BSectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comThe First Amendment of our Constitution says, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceable to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Please do me a favor and read this First Amendment at least ve times and then tell me why our government has for over 68 years been protecting and spending tons of money to spread the religions of Atheism and Agnosticism? For clarication, an Agnostic is a person who believes that nothing is known about the existence of God or about things outside the human experience. An Atheist believes there is no God. Now back to the reason for the question. For over 68 years, if not much longer, our government has promoted and protected this religion through our government school system, and some have twisted the words of our First Amendment to protect it. You see, Evolution and the Big Bang Theory have been taught in the science classes of our public schools all these years and our children have even been tested to make sure they understand this religion which was imagined in the mind of George Waterhouse Darwin, who was a racist and by his theory an atheist. Then, Thomas Huxley, an agnostic, advanced the acceptance of evolution among scientists and the public alike, even though there is no science or scientic proof for any of it. T h ats right, no scientic proof! I believe a real scientist would actually laugh in the face of Darwin if he presented it in the world we live in today. So, why do our school boards continue to waste money purchasing books, and paying teachers to teach non-truths, that they themselves are not comfortable with? And why have museums wasted money to create the Nebraska man, which is supposed to be the link between man and monkey. When in actuality, the person who rst drew the Nebraska man drew him from one small tooth, which was later found to be the jawbone of a wild pig. If I could take a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle and throw it into a category three hurricane and when it landed it was all together and matted, I might think that it was worth taking our childrens valuable learning time to teach the possibilities of this ridiculous theory, that they might question whether there was a God or not. NOT!!! Because you and I both know, even if we did this experiment one-million times, not even two pieces would come together. So the truth of the matter is; it takes more faith to believe that this great universe just came together without a creator, than it does to believe that there is a God. To my understanding of things, since evolution is not a science and it is based on the beliefs of one person, it is a religion. A religion according to the subtitle of his Origin was The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life. The question you can simply ask is, who do you think Darwin tagged as the Unfavored races? So my question is; why is the ACLU and others so interested in preserving a religion, sponsored by our government, which is against the Constitution, and is racialist? And why are they afraid to share another view? After all, evolution is only a theory. Are they afraid that their religion of choice would not be accepted anymore, because it cannot pass the test of human questioning? The simple answer to all of these questions comes from the Bible which says, Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2 Thes. 2:9-12 KJV).

The doer of a secret good deed will feel that there is something purer in their motive because they are not doing it to receive thanks or recognition, and this feeling is likely to raise the doers self-esteem. In addition, the person who receives the anonymous gift or act of kindness is likely to feel that the world is a kinder, friendlier place, with people out there whom they dont even know doing good deeds. There are lots of ways we can do a secret good deed. For example, paying the toll for the person behind us, or buying the couples tickets behind us in line at the movie theater. Other ideas may include putting money in expired meters, leaving some food or a gift for someone at work, or perhaps leaving a plate of goodies in someones desk who we know wont have time to go out for lunch. We should be creative do a secret good deed. There is really no end to the anonymous acts of kindness we can do, and it really will make us and the recipient feel great. The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself. New K.J.V. Proverbs 11:25 Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Page 4 Faith EVentsENTSBy Rev. James L. SnyderI am rather oldfashioned in some areas of my life, which I do not intend to upgrade to current standards. I do not believe in changing something unless it really needs to be changed. A crazy phobia is going around these days suggesting that if something is old, it must not be any good and if it is new, it must be good. I think old Solomon was right when he said, there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJV). So, I am never intimidated by some new gizmo or gadget that comes down the line. One of the things I have no intention of upgrading is in the area of giving credit. I believe in giving credit where credit is due. After all, I need all the credit I can get these days. If somebody does something that blesses me, I am beholden to give them their due credit. I am under the opinion that if I give enough people enough credit that one day I just may be able to cash in. This all came to me this past week when I had my visit to the dentist. I make it a rule to visit my dentist once a decade whether I need to or not. The thing that spurred my visit to the dentist this time was one of my llings had fallen out. Actually, I am assuming it fell out because where it used to be was a hole in my tooth. Upon pondering the situation to its logical conclusion, I must have eaten my lling. This dental hygienic situation brought me to my latest visit with my dental hygienist. While I was there, I thought I would save time, if not money, and have my teeth cleaned. Every decade I like to have my teeth cleaned. According to my dentists records, the last time I had my teeth cleaned was 13 years ago. So, it is time. Because it was so long since my last visit with the dentist, he insisted on taking pictures of all my teeth. I hope to get copies so I can post it on my Facebook. After all, what would my Facebook be without pictures of teeth? I had forgotten the whole procedure of dental photography. It took an entire hour to photograph all my teeth one at a time. During the sixty minutes of my photography shoot, I had to keep my mouth open. I have never had my mouth open for so long in all my life. The upshot of my visit with the dentist was I had a clean bill of health regarding my teeth and gums. I must have been doing something right to have such healthy teeth and gums for a person my age. When the dentist said a person my age, I was not sure if he was insulting me or congratulating me for good health. Being the gentleman that I am, I took the latter. I dont know what youre doing, the dentist said cheerfully as I left his ofce, just keep it up. With that, I left the dentist ofce. I thought a lot about what he said and I have come to a major conclusion. I like giving credit where credit is due, so I had to think long and hard about whom to credit for my good dental health. Certainly, I could congratulate the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage on her superb dietary work in the kitchen. Without doubt, it pays to eat the right food if you are going to have good health. But I think it goes much further than this. What am I doing to credit such a good dental health report? Then it came to me. Have you ever given serious thought about something for so long, you seem to be getting nowhere, and then all of a sudden, it hits you? I know what I can credit my excellent dental health to. Apple Fritters. That is right. The reason I have good teeth and good gums is because of a consistent diet of Apple Fritters. After all, everybody knows the main ingredient of an Apple Fritter is an Apple. There is nothing better for a person than an Apple. Where the Fritter comes in is very simple. The Fritter part of an Apple Fritter is the means by which my body can assimilate the nutritional aspects of the Apple. The Fritter facilitates the good parts of the Apple to every part of my body. Therefore, with a deep sense of humility and gratefulness, I credit my dental health to the regular consumption of Apple Fritters. A friend of mine recently suggested that I might be addicted to Apple Fritters, but I kindly remonstrated him by explaining I am addicted to good dental health. My spiritual health is a different matter. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen (Jude 1:24-25 KJV). God gets all the credit in my life for my spiritual health now and forever.Giving credit where credit is dueSeparation of Church and StateFRomOM theTHE hea HEARt TTim Hall See EVentsENTS B5
