Marti Coley sum up her political career? She does in two simple words hard-working. I think I am a very hardworking state representative, says Coley, (R-Marianna). In Tallahassee, people have to establish a reputation, and I think that I have established one as a very hard worker. As an example of her hard work, Coley sites the repeal of the 2010 septic tank inspection law. The law establishing that all Floridians had to have their septic tanks inspected once every ve years was very unpopular in rural areas of the state, and Coley said she worked tirelessly to get the law repealed. The repeal of the 2010 septic tank laws was also applauded by business groups, realtors and home builders, according to tampabay.com. The legislature repealed the law in March. Coley said she led to repeal the septic tank law in 2011, and she said she overheard a lobbyist talking about how she just didnt get it. He was the one who didnt get it, she said. My residents didnt care for the legislation, and they wanted their property rights protected for them it was a huge issue. Coley said once when she visited with Sen. Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) seeking support for her repeal, she told him, I dont think I will be able to go back home and live if we dont get this repeal. Truly this state cant be treated with a one-sizetsall statute. Rural Florida cant be treated the same way as densely populated southern Florida. The size and scope of rural legislators districts is a good example. Coley said in south Florida, there are representatives who have districts that only cover a few blocks of a city. Redistricting has resulted From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Dell Corbin announced his candidacy Friday for the of ce of tax collector, being vacated by the retiring Helen McEntyre. Corbin, a lifelong resident of Washington County, is a local businessman with over 20 years of experience in daily business management and has the budgeting, banking nance and governmental regulatory compliance skills necessary to successfully perform the duties of tax collector, Corbin said in a news release. As managing member of an inhouse auto sales nance company, Corbin said he is well versed in the importance of tax law but is, more importantly, aware of the ever increasing tax burdens facing the people of Washington County. Professional skills are important, but working with people in From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Randy Wilson, a Republican candidate, announced June 13 his candidacy for Washington County County Commissioner District 1. As a resident of Washington County, I share in the concerns of the taxpayers and voters, Wilson said. I believe to be a good leader and to have good success the leader must be willing to serve and represent the people that have made a decision to vote. Wilson said leaders work, leaders set good examples and are committed to what they believe. I believe in family. Having been married to my wife Vickie for 29 years, Im a husband and father. We share in good times and sometimes bad, he said. I believe in God, as I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior at the age of 24, Wilson said.

Brad Drake (R-Eucheenana) wont be seeking re-election this year, so Coley can have her nal term as representative for the newly con gured District 7, which will include Washington and Holmes counties. Coley, 51, is a native of Blountstown and a graduate of Chipola Junior College and longtime resident of Jackson County. She was a teacher in Thomasville, Ga., before moving to Marianna in 1985 with her husband, David. She began teaching at Malone High School and remained there until 1989 when she moved to Chipola College as an instructor. She has been teaching at the college for 20 years. She was rst elected to the state House of Representatives on June 14, 2005, to complete her husbands term after he died in March 2005. She has held the ofce since. One of the biggest challenges we face is the economy, Coley said. We need to make sure we make every effort to bring jobs to our area and our state. We also have to challenge the old notion that manufacturing jobs are low-paying. That isnt the case with manufacturing today. More good, high-paying jobs are needed to strengthen the economy, and Coley said she wants to make the state more attractive to businesses. We dont need the government having an anti-business attitude. We dont need to be doing things to drive business away no one should have to wait two years for a permit, for example, she said. One of the biggest boons to attracting business was doing away with the states Department of Community Affairs, and turning its duties over to the Department of Economic Opportunity. Even the name is better, Coley said. The focus was changed from what can we do to stop you from opening a business to how can we help you? It was a world of difference. Coley said her focus if she is elected for another term will be to continue to focus on keeping government both limited and ef cient. We dont need to be raising taxes, and we need to live within our means, she said. We as a government dont need to be looking at all the stuff we want then go out and raise taxes to get it. We need to keep to a budget. While Coley says having gambling establishments in a county should be up to the voters, she doesnt think gambling is a good bet for the economy. I just dont think we should be basing our economy on it. I sure wouldnt want to see Florida become LasVegas. She said although it could be a divisive issue, the crux of the matter is jobs. People are concerned about the economy and they want to have jobs for their children. One lesson learned from the BP crisis was that depending on one source of income for a region can be a fatal mistake, Coley said. The more diverse the economy is the more stable it will be, she said, and in the Panhandle there is tourism, agriculture, education and manufacturing. One of our strengths in the Panhandle is that we work as a region. Our communities work together to make a better county, and our counties work together to make a stronger region. We collaborate and we get the job done. COLEY from page A1 a friendly and courteous manner is also important. I will serve you courteously and informatively as you conduct business in these challenging economic times. Corbin has three children Cierra, 19, a college student pursuing a degree in pharmacology; Jenna, 17, a returning senior at Chipley High School; and Chandler, 12, a student at Roulhac Middle School. A graduate of Chipley High School and Chipola College, Corbin attends Shiloh Baptist Church and has been an active member of the Chipley Kiwanis Club for over 15 years. The tax collector does not set tax rates or policy but does work closely with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Department of Revenue and the Florida Game and Fish Commission, Corbin said. Corbin said he intends to bring to bear every tool available to the of ce of tax collector to enhance the convenience, welfare and bene t of the people that department serves. The tax collector of ce impacts the lives of citizens as much, if not more, than any other county ofce, Corbin said. Hunting and shing licenses, property taxes, sales tax, vehicle tags and vehicle registrations (and soon to include drivers licenses) impact all those who pass through the tax collectors of ce. Corbin said if elected, the tax collectors staff will provide fast and ef cient service and will implement the use of credit and debit cards for transaction payments, while increasing additional online services for the convenience of our customers. More than ever we need proven leadership and an understanding of government, better services and less demand and pressure on our already over-burdened citizens, he said. I have been putting people rst for over 20 years in the private sector, satisfying customers by always providing more value for lower cost, Corbin said. Find out more about Dell Corbin at www.

We need to try to invite other industry jobs and businesses to consider our county as great potential.

So, Washington County has provided me with opportunity to have success in business for 25 years.

The 14-day period begins with the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More and ends on Independence Day. Locally, a Prayer Service for Religious Freedom will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. beginning Thursday at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, 2331 Highway 177A, in Bonifay and continuing every evening Monday through Saturday until July 4. On June 14, Flag Day, the Catholic bishops of Florida urged the faithful and others of good will to stand together to protect our sacred and shared right to religious freedom. In a joint statement, the bishops of Florida call for the Fortnight for Freedom. This period of time is dedicated to prayer, study and action to defend against recent challenges to religious freedom and ensure the ongoing protection of religious liberty. Culminating on Independence Day, this special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action will emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty. Dioceses and parishes around the country have scheduled special events that support a great national campaign of teaching and witness for religious liberty. Some recent threats to religious freedom include the HHS mandate to provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception; forcing Catholic foster care and adoption services to shut down for refusal to place children with same-sex couples; state immigration laws that forbid pastoral care of undocumented immigrants; discrimination against Catholic humanitarian services for victims of human traf cking for refusal to refer for abortion services, according to the bishops. As bishops, we are called to be authentic teachers of our faith and steadfast witnesses to the love of Christ, even in the face of controversy and great debate. It is this responsibility that moves us to jointly and urgently appeal to the Catholic faithful and others of good will to stand together to preserve and protect our human and civil right to religious freedom, which is being diminished and marginalized today on many fronts, the bishops said in a news release. This 14-day period is a special time for prayer and commitment on behalf of our beloved country and in support of our God-given right, which no government has the authority to take from us. Let us pray in thanksgiving for our heritage of religious freedom, re ect on attempts to limit this most cherished liberty and have the courage to take positive action, the bishops said in their statement. Religious freedom is our rst civil freedom rst in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, according to the bishops statement. This sacred right belongs to us all. It is the basis of our democracy and the very reason that early settlers ed to our protecting shores. We must never take for granted this right for which so many before us fought and gave their lives. If you have any further questions, please call Mike DeRuntz at 614-1082. Everyone is welcome to join in with pray and petition for the protection of our religious liberties. As the 56th Annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival approaches the June 22-23 dates, your writer asks himself this provoking question: Self, do you really believe you can write anything worthwhile regarding a watermelon festival after all these years? The answer came in a ash: I dont know, but I can try! So here goes. The writer took the reins as chairman of our local event, beginning with the 1977 summer festival. My approach to todays prattle could be entitled Ten Things I Learned Early in staging the watermelon festival, which was then in its twentyrst year of existence: 1. Rely heavily on the County Extension agent, veteran J. E. (Red) Davis, who was relinquishing the chairmanship of the event, on its way to bigger and better achievements. 2. Two of the main watermelon growers in the county were brothers, Rex Nelson and Farrell Nelson. The rst year found me wading the thick undergrowth in the eld with Rex Nelson, locating choice melons for cutting, serving guests, and for the big melon contest. 3. Ross Deal, who may have unwittingly known that he was starting something to become a mammoth event, with a simple cookout honoring growers and buyers, could be depended on to stimulate bidding on big watermelon purchasers, especially in an election year. 4. Ulysse Harrison, a member of the Kiwanis Club, who traditionally cut and serve free watermelon slices to our visitors, insisted that the melons for that purpose be big ones. 5. Producers, who furnished those melons free, did not want them referred to as culls. They were simply not shipping melons. 6. V. J. Collins could be relied upon to furnish children for the Gene Ragan Saturday Evening Farm Show on WTVY-TV in Dothan. He did this mainly through the built in four children of daughter, Myrel and the two children of son, Joe Earl and Eilene Pipkin Collins. 7. Mack Hudson, an employee at the Agri Center, could always be depended upon to come up with the impossible last minute items of garbage cans, paper towels, toilet tissue, and numerous other items which are always needed for a festival. 8. Dick Keniss chaired the rst Horse Shows introduced to the festival. Coordinators of the early Beauty Pageants include Pat Balboni, Aldean Adams, Shirley Hightower and Carolyn Sasser. 9. Walker Hughen, the Secretary and Treasurer of the organization, kept immaculate records of who gave it and who got it. These les are still in the archives, together with a storehouse of other valuable and interesting memorabilia associated with the long running historic festival. 10. At the Friday Fun Night, and for the Saturday Event, entertainment was added to make the festival a week-end event. This was a responsibility shared by Dalton Carter and Lamar Townsend. Both events were held on a at bead trailer as a stage, covered with a giant tarpaulin, to protect the bands from the ever scorching sun and the occasional rains. The list of things learned early in the tenure of chairman of the watermelon festival was bringing additional activities to attract more visitors. The antique car show, with John and Sandra Ostrowski chairing the event, Arts and Crafts, along with specialty foods, under the leadership of Judy Corbus, the 5000 Meter Run, headed by Dr. Stan Owens, has steadily increased in participation and the Parade, coordinated by Travis Pitts, has grown in entries each year from an humble beginning. The Pancake Breakfast, the 7-9 a.m. event provided by the Panhandle Shrine Club in Chipley, has become an integral part of the annual watermelon festival. John Claghorn, a horseshoe enthusiast, chairs a Tournament Style Horseshoe Pitch on the grounds at the festival, which continues to gain interest and momentum. Entertainment by big names country and bluegrass bands continues to bring additional crowds to the already bulging at the seams numbers. Current Chairman, Judge Colby Peel, now in his seventh year as leader of the popular festival, has made great strides in the Friday Night show with talent presented and the involvement of other organizations and business leaders in the community. At the time of my retirement as chairman of the festival committee, the group was in agreement to add the crescent parcel of property, on the west side of the massive drainage ditch, to the Agriculture Center acreage to allow for further expansion of the watermelon festival and other agriculture related events. Early in the negotiations, the owners of the parcel changed their minds on selling. In the meantime, the downturn in the economy caused county fathers to take a second look at all purchases. When the sellers reported their willingness to sell the property a year later, the Wells family became the purchaser in order to hold the plot intact, awaiting better economic times to pursue the dream of adding it to the festival grounds. The idea has been to incorporate the additional real estate into a project hopefully to be known as Watermelon Park. The existing house on the property is ideal for housing all the watermelon memorabilia of the past and could be called Watermelon Festival Library. The plot would allow for a pavilion, one or more gazebos, a fence along the ditch and beauti cation of additional owering plants and shrubs to make it a showplace. With the assistance of family members, the site will be open and ready to show a preview of some of the above ideas. Drop by and look it over. See you all at the June 22-23 Festival!

But at the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting on June 12, she requested that it be placed on the ballot so county residents can decide for themselves. One of the boards abilities is to place this on the ballot and allow the citizens to decide, but its completely up to the board, Holmes County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked her what she would do if the vote failed. Then I would back off of the matter, Mason said. I might endorse or support someone else that may come along later, but I would back off trying to get it passed for the golf club. Goodman said that they could construct the ordinance however they wanted, with whatever restrictions they would be comfortable with and that the time limit would allow for three meetings to construct and approve of an ordinance in time to place it on the November ballot. Theres my personal opinion and theres my position to support the decision of the people, Williams said. So I say we place it on the ballot and allow the people to decide. Commissioner Jim King said that no matter what that he would be opposed to the idea. The board approved to put on the ballot to extend the hours of alcohol sales to Sunday contingent on the approval of an ordinance that the board found acceptable with a vote of 3 to 2, with Commissioner Phillip Music and King voting no. The Board approved keeping the 911 Dispatch and 911 Dispatch Director Clint Erickson at their present location and to pay the additional $592 in materials to expand from their contingency fund. Space became an issue with the 911 Dispatch when a grant gave the department $300,000 worth of new equipment as well as additional equipment. The new equipment had to be in place and operational by June 2013, but time was of the essence as their current equipments warranty was running out and the new equipment would have to nd a new storage place till space was acquired. The options were narrowed down to two possibilities: expand their current space or move to the new EOC. The City of Bonifay currently is allowing them to use one of their buildings rent-free and agreed to allow 911 Dispatch to expand as long as dispatch assumed all of the expenses. Several issues arose from remaining in their current building, which included air conditioning as well as time, money and labor to expand. Another issue was that the rst installation of the new equipment was free, but if they had to move the equipment in the next ve years it would cost them $20,000 to move. Erickson said that the City of Bonifay had sent a letter stating that additional footage could be added to the building the 911 Dispatch was occupying to accommodate to the additional equipment and the estimated expense to the Board would be $592. Goodman said he would complete the necessary paperwork with the city to get started as soon as possible. This has been a headache since day one, Commissioner Monty Merchant said. Id like to see that all of the information be presented to the board on the rst go so that it can be voted on. County Engineer Cliff Knauer presented the board with a comprehensive list of all the bridges and roads that have been in need of repair, have applied for federal funding for repairs and those that are in the process of being federally funded to be repaired. I suggest that each district select bridges to be submitted to the Florida Department of Transportations Rural Works Program and that if theres any bridges not listed that you inquire about it, Knauer said. Like Mr. Kings bridge on Alford Road wasnt listed, so now weve got to nd out why it wasnt on the list. Williams had Knauer con rm that County Road 177 already had funds set aside and was scheduled to be repaired in the near future. Several representatives from Thompson Tractor Company, Inc., including sales representative Joel Whitehead, were present to suggest that the board consider the Caterpillar Certied Power Train Program. This means that the county graders would be rebuilt from the inside and would include painting, decals and a certi cate showing that the machine was rebuilt with the three-year, 5,000 hour warranty coverage program, if the board chooses. The board agreed to look over the material and give it some consideration. The board approved of Kings request to replace a recently resigned member of the Development Commission with Shirley Hawthorn. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on June 26 at the BOCC building behind the Holmes County Court House.

There is a mystery that has crept upon us, and so slowly that few have noticed. The mystery is a sh we catch almost every time we bottom sh. Over Destin way it is called mingo. In this area it is referred to as beeliner. The ofcial name is vermillion snapper. Vermillion, by the way, means red. But these are not red snapper. When we shed the Gulf during the 1950s we caught beeliners along with everything else, but they weighed about a half-pound. They were great grouper and king mackerel bait. Sometimes when we caught a bunch some would dry up in the bottom of the boat and I would throw them overboard and they would oat away behind the boat. They wouldnt oat very far before a king mackerel would strike them. They were very good king bait dead or alive and still are good grouper or king bait. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the sh that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. The story was about the opening of snapper season, and this particular picture was intended to show how many snapper you could catch if you went along on the next trip. The only problem was that all these sh were vermillion snapper. There must have been 100 sh hanging over the rail, but only one out of the bunch was a red snapper. The question is, Where did all these big vermillion snapper come from? They certainly werent here years ago. When I worked in the oil patch running a standby boat in the 1970s and 1980s I caught vermillion snapper of this size in about 240 feet of water. I would bring some home and people would have to look twice because they thought they were red snapper. Im not complaining, but I would like to know how such a tiny sh became so large and no one noticed. The world record by the way is 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and was caught in the Gulf of Mexico. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the fish that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. Wednesday, June 20, 2012 OUTD OO RS Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By VALERIE GARMAN 229-7843 | @valeriegarman vgarman@starfl.com Meg Lamont describes the night shift at the Fish Inn on Cape San Blas as similar to being a new parent sleep is rare, and you never know what to expect. The Fish Inn is not a motel or bed and breakfast; its the home-base for the Universi ty of Florida Marine Turtle Research Group, an organization dedicated to protecting the threatened and endangered sea turtle species that nest in Northwest Florida. Lamont, who oversees the program, has been tagging sea turtles on St. Joseph Penin sula since 1998, and new satellite tagging tech nology has allowed more insight into a turtles journey than ever before. With the help of University of Florida biolo gist Brail Stephens and a house full of college interns from across the country, every night from May to August is spent patrolling the beach, from the Stump Hole to the southern boundary of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, for nesting sea turtles to tag. The group at the Fish Inn is essentially nocturnal, spending their nights surveying the beach on ATVs with red headlights from sunup to sundown, their eyes peeled for movement in the sand. Its sort of like being a new parent when you work this job, Lamont said. When you do sleep its just two hours here, two hours there. Last week, the group satellite-tagged 10 sea turtles on the Cape as part of an oil spill research project in the Gulf. The high-tech sat ellite tags provide a turtles exact GPS coordi nates when the turtle comes up for air. Although nesting female turtles have been known to return to nest within ve kilometers of where they previously nested during their nest ing period, Lamont said GPS tracking the nest ing females has shown something unexpected. Its the rst time weve been able to see what the turtles are doing during their nesting periods, Lamont said. These guys are go ing 100 to 150 kilometers away. Its not whats expected. She said many of the turtles that have nested on the Cape have shown up in Alabama, where oil spill research also is being done with satel lite tracking. Although the group works mostly with log gerhead turtles, a threatened species, they also see endangered green sea turtles on Cape San Blas. We dont know very much about turtles once theyre in the water or where they go once they leave the beach, said Lamont, who noted satellite tracking has helped to show where the their habitats lie and what paths they take to get there, information that is essential for pro tecting the species. GPS trackers have provided insight into the turtles foraging grounds, typically located in Southwest Florida and off the Yucatan Penin sula in Mexico. Their foraging areas have all been shal low-water, inshore areas, Lamont said. When youre looking to protect turtles, its equally if not more important than protecting their nest ing area. The turtles have such an intimate relation ship with the inshore environment its so dynamic. Although technology and research has im proved, it is still difcult to know whether the turtle population is increasing or declining. Its difcult to tell with turtles because theyre long-lived, Lamont said. When I rst came (to this area) there were a lot of nests, and it declined, but it declined nationally. In the past few years, weve seen an increase. Lamont said they have seen more nests on the Cape this year than ever before, with 25 turtles tagged this season and the peak nesting season still approaching. Lamont started tagging turtles more than a decade ago as a dissertation project while studying at the University of Florida and esti mates more than 500 turtles have been tagged since then. She began using ipper tags, small metal tags with a serial number that clamp to a tur tles ipper, a process the group still uses in ad dition to satellite tagging. I came to do my dissertation and I just never left, she said. It started with two of us tagging in ve kilometers of Eglin it just got more and more interesting. She said every day is an adventure for the research group on the Cape. In 2010, a 9-foot alligator took up residence on their survey path and hissed and growled at the interns as they rode by. Theyve seen bears and bobcats, tons of storms, broken down vehicles and vehicles stuck in the sand. The beach is also patrolled every morning from 6:30-11 a.m. by a group of volunteers who mark nests and gather information to track the hatching success of the turtles. Sea turtles nest about every two to three years and nest several times during that nest ing year, Lamont said, so the group often sees the same tagged turtle several times a year, and sometimes years later. Lamont remembered one turtle she has seen about 13 or 14 times through the years. She even remembered the serial number on her tag. Every year you want to see what turtles will come, Lamont said. Its like youre seeing an old friend.

Steve Felix, Bryce Lane and John Mariotti are three former area standouts who are competing in indepen dent leagues. Teams in these leagues have no MLB connec tions per se, but some players have been signed from those squads and given more op portunities to advance up the minor-league ladder. Both Felix and Lane were in MLB minor leagues last season with Milwaukee and Houston, respectively. Mari otti was last connected with the Philadelphia Phillies or ganization in 2010. Lane and Mariotti, both Gulf Coast products, play in the Can-Am League. Fe lix is with the Normal (Ill.) CornBelters of the Frontier League. Lane is fourth on the New ark (N.J.) Bears with a .289 batting average. He is third in home runs (three) and tied for second in RBIs (15) while add ing two stolen bases and 15 runs scored as an outelder. Mariotti, a right-handed pitcher, is 3-1 with a 3.19 ERA, 21 strikeouts and ve walks in ve starts for the Quebec Capitales. He has done little to hurt his chances of catch ing the eye of another MLB team by going 16-2 with 145 strikeouts and 27 walks in two seasons with Quebec. Felix, a Rutherford graduate, spent two years in Milwaukees system be fore being released after 45 games on the Rookie League level in 2011. He is hitting .241 with three homers and 11 RBIs in 79 at-bats with the CornBelters. Chipola players signed Former Chipola stars L.J. Hollins and Jordan Poole re cently signed contracts with the Washington Nationals. Poole, an outelder, was se lected in the 14th round of the MLB Draft, while Hollins, a right-handed side-arm pitch er, was chosen in the 29th round. Poole has been given a tentative assignment of Au burn, N.Y., in the Single-A New York-Penn. League, ac cording to minorleaguebase ball.com. Hollins didnt have an assignment listed as of Friday. Both likely will spend time in extended spring train ing to acclimate to the new level. Fellow Chipola team mate Andrew Toles is still unsigned by Tampa Bay. The Rays drafted the outelder in the third round. By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com This weeks race really wasnt all that exciting, unless you are a Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan then it was a great race. But as many of you know, I am not a Junior fan I am a Tony Stewart fan. But like any other sport, you win some and you lose some. We will go into that later. This was Juniors rst win in 143 races. Little Es last win came in Michigan in June 2008. Can he keep up the winning in Sonoma this weekend? We will see. There were a lot of the drivers having engine issues. Kyle Busch and Josh Wise had to leave the race because of their engines overheating. Wise wasnt out there long before his hopes of a win ended in lap 10, when his engine blew for the second caution of the day. The rst was when Kurt Busch hit the wall in lap 2. He also caused the caution on lap 121 by hitting the wall for caution six. Cautions three and four were completion cautions, so adjustments could be made on the cars. Caution ve came in lap 82 for debris on the track. Then something kind of rare happened: the NASCAR ofcials got out of their clean-up trucks and picked the debris up by hand. Caution seven came out in lap 127 when the star of the last couple of weeks, Joey Logano, hit the wall hard and had to be taken to the ineld care center as a precaution. He also took Kasey Kahne along for the ride into that wall. The eighth and nal caution of the 200-lap Quicken Loans 400 came out when Denny Hamlins engine exploded. Now, to the stuff circulating on the web about Stewart and Junior they are buddies, and I feel like they probably rigged up the whole thing before the race. And if it wasnt, then I totally agree with what Tony said: Its not a national holiday just because he won. I am sure he was upset about coming in second, but wouldnt you be? Now on to something else. Kurt Busch has harassed yet another reporter. This time it was Marty Smith from ESPN. Come on, Kurt, youre a good driver just keep your mouth shut and fulll your obligations so you can get a sponsor. James Finch has given you another chance. I would suggest you take it and be thankful for it. You have the potential to win in Sonoma. Just make it a repeat of last year. Keep your head held high, Kurt, and you can put this all behind you. Until next week, NASCAR fans. Special to The News BILOXI, Miss.

By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE de LEON Whether youre Juan Ponce de Leon or Johnny Depp, if youre looking for the Fountain of Youth, look no further its closer than you might think. In spite of what many might think, though the state announced it might close the Ponce de Leon Springs State Park in 2010, it is still going strong, with an average of more than 1,000 visitors per week. The park is named after Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who led the rst Spanish expedition to Florida in 1513 searching for the Fountain of Youth. Though the crisp, clear waters of the Ponce de Leon Springs wont make you forever young, the older generation of the area say they feel like a kid again when they visit the old swimmin hole. However, the old swimmin hole has changed quite a bit over the ages. Before the Ponce de Leon Springs became a recreational area, it was a source of drinking water for the European settlers and American Indians. The land surrounding the springs was used for harvesting timber and turpentine, which was the majority of the industry for that area. The longleaf pines were a perfect source of timber for building homes, businesses and the railroad that would be crucial for developing the Florida we know today. Those pines were also a good resource for turpentining, the process of cutting deep grooves in the bark to cause it to pour resin, which was used in the making of glue, ink, paint, varnishes, sealants for wood homes and many other useful products. The earliest recorded owners were the Smithgall family, who owned the spring in the 1920s and built it to be a tourist attraction and recreational destination. The Smithgall family built a bathhouse, concession stand and skating rink, installed a large slide and created a barrier around the spring to prevent erosion. Though a lot has changed since the Florida Park Service inducted the springs as a state park on Dec. 21, 1970, many things remain the same. The springs are still a major draw, with water temperatures maintaining a constant 68 degrees with a continual feed of 14 million gallons per day by two underground water ows and caves for exploring. Visitors also are drawn by the natural features, such as nature trails with seasonal Ranger-guided tours, picnicking in the park with grills and pavilions available to the public, shing opportunities for catsh, largemouth bass, chain pickerel and pansh and even the occasional wedding. One attraction the park is striving to add because of popular demand is camping, according to Ponce de Leon Springs State Park INDEX Society .................................

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Ranger Aaron Miller. Theres a lot to factor in when developing camping grounds, Miller said. Theres the natural balance that must be maintained, and then theres accommodating to the visitors. I know with further study well be able to nd a happy median for the two. Another signicant aspect to the state park, far from the public eye, is the natural phenomenon that sets Ponce de Leon Springs State Park from every other state park in Florida, the Sarracenia purpurea, commonly known as the pitcher plant. Miller said Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is the rst Florida state park to have these plants thrive. The pitcher plant is a carnivore, acquiring most of its nutrients from its prey, which is primarily ants, ies, spiders, moths and even mosquitoes, and is more commonly found in the northern region. Both digestive enzymes and bacteria aid the digestion of prey, and as the pitcher leaves grow older, the community of bacteria assists the plant in digestion. Miller said the red pitcher plant is especially rare in this area, especially because the normal pitcher plants known for taking up root in Florida are the purple pitcher plants. Funny thing is we have a hard time growing the red pitcher plants, but the purple pitcher plants love the marshy areas and particularly prefer the type of moss that grows there, Miller said. We have two other ones that are common here on the park, the trumpet pitcher plants and the parrot pitcher plants. The park is also home to numerous Gopherus polyphemus, commonly known as the gopher tortoise. Gopher tortoises are known for their burrows that help shelter more than 360 other species. The gopher tortoise is now under the protection of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. There are stringent laws and procedures developers must go through to build on gopher tortoise inhabited lands because of the rapid destruction of the species in careless development. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is open 365 days out of the year from 8 a.m. until sunset. Entrance fees are $4 per vehicle with up to eight people, $2 per individual, or pavilions can be reserved for $26.75. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is also interested in making copies of any old photos or memorabilia from the past that might have some attachment to the park. Please mail photos to 2850 Ponce de Leon Springs Road, Ponce de Leon, FL 32455, call 836-4281 or email Miller at Aaron. D.Miller@DEP.State. FL.us. Of course, the handdelivered ones are even better, Miller said.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 www.boatangel.com 800 1 CAR L ANGE Special to Extra BONIFAY Bonifay Middle Schools Home Economics Enrichment Class has been working on quilts that will be given to kids in the hospital. Sixty quilts were made for donation this semester. These quilts were made by sixth-, seventhand eighthgrade students that are en rolled in Home Economics for their enrichment class the second semester of the year. The quilts will soon be donated to a Childrens Miracle Networks Hospital. This project gives students an opportunity to learn and use their talents and abili ties in a rewarding way. The hospital that these quilts are going to be do nated to allows direct de livery. This means that Mrs. Rhodes is allowed to take the quilts and put them directly in the hands of the children. When speaking with Donna Rhodes, BMS Home Economics teacher, she expressed, It is very rewarding to see the smiles on their faces. Its hard on your heart, but you know that youre giving comfort to a child in need as well as their parents. The emotions with each delivery can be overwhelming. However, I nd good with each visit. Its a calling, once you go into a hospital and hand out this kind of love, it changes your life. Receiving a quilt makes these children very happy. The second quilt show of this school year was held on May 31, 2012. Stu dents, parents, siblings as well as grandparents were invited to our quilt show. Around 100 people attended the show. During the quilt show, Pastor, Mi chael Goodson blessed the quilts. He asked for there to be comfort and healing for the children receiving the quilts. He also blessed the children who gave of themselves while making these quilts for others. During the quilt show we honored a child in out coun ty with a quilt. Her name is Kaylee Barton, daughter of Chad and Ashley Barton. Kaylee has some mobility problems and will be hav ing surgeries in the near future to help her walk. The quilt was made by Megan Erickson, a sixth grader at BMS. We here at Bonifay Middle School will accept donations of new, brightly colored, kid friendly cotton fabrics. We will also accept polyester, low loft batting to complete the quilts. If interested in donatin g, you may bring items by Bonifay Middle School. For more in formation go to www.quilts forkids.org. Its 5:30 p.m. and you just got home from work when there is a knock at the door. It is a police ofcer explaining that you have 15 minutes to evacuate your family and pets from your home as a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed close to your property. What could you grab in your house in 15 minutes that is necessary for your family and pets livelihood? Dr. Deb Zoran, associate professor and member of the Veterinary Emergency Response Team at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), presented the previous example and asked Could you gather up your personal documents, your pets rabies documents, your pets food, enough clothing and personal belongings for yourself in 15 minutes and not forget anything? To ensure nothing is forgotten, Zoran recommends a preparedness plan for family and pets in case emergencies or natural disasters occur. She said this plan should include discussing locations for evacuation, meeting sites incase family members are separated or cell phones do not work, and who is taking care of the pets. Zoran strongly encouraged not leaving a pet in an emergency situation. Rule of thumb that pet owners should always use is that if you are evacuating, take your pet with you. Dont assume that you will be able to come home to take care of them because you probably wont, she said. Zoran suggested people prepare a go bag, a little bag that is packed with enough clothing, medicine, food, water, and other necessities. This bag should also include important documents such as IDs and cash incase power is out at ATMs and banks. The other thing that needs to be in your go bag is a little stash of cash because otherwise you may not be able to pay for gas, food, or anything if something truly monstrous occurs where the power shuts off, she said. There should also be a go bag for pets as well. Zoran said this should include their carrier, leashes, food, and water. For cats, this would also include a litter box and litter. As with people, the go bag should include the pets vaccination and medical records in addition to identication documents in case of separation. Zoran said this would include information about micro chipping or photographs of the animals. For both humans and pets, Zoran said the go bag should contain supplies for three to ve days. Remember, the emergency situation is not always a train derailment. Other disasters known to Texas are hurricanes, tornadoes, wildres, and earthquakes. A preparedness plan can help in all emergencies and natural disasters. The truth of the matter is preparing helps you think more logically and clearly because you know what to take and where things are, Zoran said. Zoran explained that all disasters are different so it is important to be able to adapt to the situation. The preparedness plan works until disaster hits and then what do you do? You adapt to the situation. If you have a plan and an idea, it is much easier to adapt, she said.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, June 20, 2012 But when the holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be lled with power, and you will be my witnesses... Good News Bible Acts 1:8 Place your message here for only $8.00 per week. First Baptist Church come as you are Mike Orr, Pastor 1300 South Blvd. PO Box 643 Chipley, Florida (850) 638-1830 Place your message here for only $8.00 per week. This Message Courtesy of Give Expecting Nothing in Return The saying Beware of Greeks bearing gifts is an old piece of wisdom which advises us to not trust our enemies, after the story in the Iliad of the Trojan horse, a gift that ultimately destroyed the city of Troy and its inhabitants. But there was also another reason to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, and that was that they always expected something in return, of comparable value. Gift-giving in ancient cultures was meant to be reciprocated and this carries over to modern times. But, a true gift should be something freely given without any expectation of re turn. If there is an expectation of a comparable return then we are really bartering rather than giving. So, we should give with a spirit of genuine charity, not expecting any thing in return. Test your ability to give in this spirit by giving anonymously, so that the recipient wont know who it came from. This isnt always practical, but can sometimes be done by sending someone an anonymous gift through the mail or by arranging for an intermediary to give the gift for you, perhaps even allowing the intermediary to take credit for the gift. Wanting to be thanked for a gift is all about our ego, and while it is only natural to desire thanks, it is better to give expecting nothing in return.

Matthew 6:2-4 BY RAY REYNOLDS Get yourself a glass of tea, shed say as I walked in the door, happy to be back home in Esto. Annie Laura Kidd made good sweet tea the key was Louisiane brand tea bags, shed tell you and I was happy to be back at her kitchen table, catching up on the local news. Annie kept her nger on the pulse in Esto, having settled into a new brick home only a few steps from the old unpainted wood-frame house where she was born. I didnt want to come back to Esto, shed acknowledge, but her husband Jimmy insisted, and their daughters Liz and Sara t right in, living among rst and second and third cousins. It was fun at their house. Something was always going on. Annie was ready for a hand of cards, or a word game, or a good-natured quarrel with Jimmy. Maybe a jigsaw puzzle was in the works on the dining room table. Usually there was a pound cake, or some cookies and orange nut bars at Christmas. My mother complained Id rather be at Annies than at home. It was a close second. And then, after my mother died, it was true. Annie was another mother. The years passed, and I moved farther away. But Ive always looked forward to trips home to Esto, and to a glass of Annies tea, and all the local news. A few years ago, when she turned 80, all of Esto turned out for a surprise party in the fellowship hall of the Esto Baptist Church. And it was a surprise, one of the few local stirrings to escape her attention. She said at the end of the party: I reckon Ill stick around and aggravate my younguns a while longer. She did. Her 88th birthday came and went last August 25. When I was home in the spring, it seemed clear there might not be another birthday. We had a good visit, and a few glasses of sweet tea, as she drifted in and out. As the time came to leave, I thanked her for being my other mother. She was fully present. Ive been proud to be your other mother, she said, looking into my eyes. Well, are you ready to go? I asked. Im ready, she said. When the time comes, Im ready to go. We hugged again, and as I turned to walk toward the door she said, Ill see you in Heaven. Annie Laura Kidd died on June 12 at home in Esto.

Vacation Bible SCHOOL Faith BRIEFS FOUR CALVARY IN CONCERT See you in heaven Page B4 BY REV. JAMES L. SNYDER Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The rst thing is to de ne what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder, and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning, and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I nish my to-do-list. Last Monday, I had just nished my morning cup of joe and nished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks, but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue rmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephonebilling mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My dif culty was simply that I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, ddlesticks does not seem to carry much signi cance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L.

Marti Coley sum up her political career? She does in two simple words hard-working. I think I am a very hardworking state representative, says Coley, (R-Marianna). In Tallahassee, people have to establish a reputation, and I think that I have established one as a very hard worker. As an example of her hard work, Coley sites the repeal of the 2010 septic tank inspection law. The law establishing that all Floridians had to have their septic tanks inspected once every ve years was very unpopular in rural areas of the state, and Coley said she worked tirelessly to get the law repealed. The repeal of the 2010 septic tank laws was also applauded by business groups, realtors and home builders, according to tampabay.com. The legislature repealed the law in March. Coley said she led to repeal the septic tank law in 2011, and she said she overheard a lobbyist talking about how she just didnt get it. He was the one who didnt get it, she said. My residents didnt care for the legislation, and they wanted their property rights protected for them it was a huge issue. Coley said once when she visited with Sen. Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) seeking support for her repeal, she told him, I dont think I will be able to go back home and live if we dont get this repeal. Truly this state cant be treated with a one-sizetsall statute. Rural Florida cant be treated the same way as densely populated southern Florida. The size and scope of rural legislators districts is a good example. Coley said in south Florida, there are representatives who have districts that only cover a few blocks of a city.

Brad Drake (R-Eucheenana) wont be seeking re-election this year, so Coley can have her nal term as representative for the newly con gured District 7, which will include Washington and Holmes counties. Coley, 51, is a native of Blountstown and a graduate of Chipola Junior College and longtime resident of Jackson County. She was a teacher in Thomasville, Ga., before moving to Marianna in 1985 with her husband, David. She began teaching at Malone High School and remained there until 1989 when she moved to Chipola College as an instructor. She has been teaching at the college for 20 years. She was rst elected to the state House of Representatives on June 14, 2005, to complete her husbands term after he died in March 2005. She has held the ofce since. One of the biggest challenges we face is the economy, Coley said. We need to make sure we make every effort to bring jobs to our area and our state. We also have to challenge the old notion that manufacturing jobs are low-paying. That isnt the case with manufacturing today. More good, high-paying jobs are needed to strengthen the economy, and Coley said she wants to make the state more attractive to businesses. We dont need the government having an anti-business attitude. We dont need to be doing things to drive business away no one should have to wait two years for a permit, for example, she said. One of the biggest boons to attracting business was doing away with the states Department of Community Affairs, and turning its duties over to the Department of Economic Opportunity. Even the name is better, Coley said. The focus was changed from what can we do to stop you from opening a business to how can we help you? It was a world of difference. Coley said her focus if she is elected for another term will be to continue to focus on keeping government both limited and ef cient. We dont need to be raising taxes, and we need to live within our means, she said. We as a government dont need to be looking at all the stuff we want then go out and raise taxes to get it. We need to keep to a budget. While Coley says having gambling establishments in a county should be up to the voters, she doesnt think gambling is a good bet for the economy. I just dont think we should be basing our economy on it. I sure wouldnt want to see Florida become LasVegas. She said although it could be a divisive issue, the crux of the matter is jobs. People are concerned about the economy and they want to have jobs for their children. One lesson learned from the BP crisis was that depending on one source of income for a region can be a fatal mistake, Coley said. The more diverse the economy is the more stable it will be, she said, and in the Panhandle there is tourism, agriculture, education and manufacturing. One of our strengths in the Panhandle is that we work as a region. Our communities work together to make a better county, and our counties work together to make a stronger region. We collaborate and we get the job done. COLEY from page A1a friendly and courteous manner is also important. I will serve you courteously and informatively as you conduct business in these challenging economic times. Corbin has three children Cierra, 19, a college student pursuing a degree in pharmacology; Jenna, 17, a returning senior at Chipley High School; and Chandler, 12, a student at Roulhac Middle School. A graduate of Chipley High School and Chipola College, Corbin attends Shiloh Baptist Church and has been an active member of the Chipley Kiwanis Club for over 15 years. The tax collector does not set tax rates or policy but does work closely with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Department of Revenue and the Florida Game and Fish Commission, Corbin said. Corbin said he intends to bring to bear every tool available to the of ce of tax collector to enhance the convenience, welfare and bene t of the people that department serves. The tax collector of ce impacts the lives of citizens as much, if not more, than any other county ofce, Corbin said. Hunting and shing licenses, property taxes, sales tax, vehicle tags and vehicle registrations (and soon to include drivers licenses) impact all those who pass through the tax collectors of ce. Corbin said if elected, the tax collectors staff will provide fast and ef cient service and will implement the use of credit and debit cards for transaction payments, while increasing additional online services for the convenience of our customers. More than ever we need proven leadership and an understanding of government, better services and less demand and pressure on our already over-burdened citizens, he said. I have been putting people rst for over 20 years in the private sector, satisfying customers by always providing more value for lower cost, Corbin said. Find out more about Dell Corbin at www.

The 14-day period begins with the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More and ends on Independence Day. Locally, a Prayer Service for Religious Freedom will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. beginning Thursday at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, 2331 Highway 177A, in Bonifay and continuing every evening Monday through Saturday until July 4. On June 14, Flag Day, the Catholic bishops of Florida urged the faithful and others of good will to stand together to protect our sacred and shared right to religious freedom. In a joint statement, the bishops of Florida call for the Fortnight for Freedom. This period of time is dedicated to prayer, study and action to defend against recent challenges to religious freedom and ensure the ongoing protection of religious liberty. Culminating on Independence Day, this special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action will emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty. Dioceses and parishes around the country have scheduled special events that support a great national campaign of teaching and witness for religious liberty. Some recent threats to religious freedom include the HHS mandate to provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception; forcing Catholic foster care and adoption services to shut down for refusal to place children with same-sex couples; state immigration laws that forbid pastoral care of undocumented immigrants; discrimination against Catholic humanitarian services for victims of human traf cking for refusal to refer for abortion services, according to the bishops. As bishops, we are called to be authentic teachers of our faith and steadfast witnesses to the love of Christ, even in the face of controversy and great debate. It is this responsibility that moves us to jointly and urgently appeal to the Catholic faithful and others of good will to stand together to preserve and protect our human and civil right to religious freedom, which is being diminished and marginalized today on many fronts, the bishops said in a news release. This 14-day period is a special time for prayer and commitment on behalf of our beloved country and in support of our God-given right, which no government has the authority to take from us. Let us pray in thanksgiving for our heritage of religious freedom, re ect on attempts to limit this most cherished liberty and have the courage to take positive action, the bishops said in their statement. Religious freedom is our rst civil freedom rst in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, according to the bishops statement. This sacred right belongs to us all. It is the basis of our democracy and the very reason that early settlers ed to our protecting shores. We must never take for granted this right for which so many before us fought and gave their lives. If you have any further questions, please call Mike DeRuntz at 614-1082. Everyone is welcome to join in with pray and petition for the protection of our religious liberties. As the 56th Annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival approaches the June 22-23 dates, your writer asks himself this provoking question: Self, do you really believe you can write anything worthwhile regarding a watermelon festival after all these years? The answer came in a ash: I dont know, but I can try! So here goes. The writer took the reins as chairman of our local event, beginning with the 1977 summer festival. My approach to todays prattle could be entitled Ten Things I Learned Early in staging the watermelon festival, which was then in its twentyrst year of existence: 1. Rely heavily on the County Extension agent, veteran J. E. (Red) Davis, who was relinquishing the chairmanship of the event, on its way to bigger and better achievements. 2. Two of the main watermelon growers in the county were brothers, Rex Nelson and Farrell Nelson. The rst year found me wading the thick undergrowth in the eld with Rex Nelson, locating choice melons for cutting, serving guests, and for the big melon contest. 3. Ross Deal, who may have unwittingly known that he was starting something to become a mammoth event, with a simple cookout honoring growers and buyers, could be depended on to stimulate bidding on big watermelon purchasers, especially in an election year. 4. Ulysse Harrison, a member of the Kiwanis Club, who traditionally cut and serve free watermelon slices to our visitors, insisted that the melons for that purpose be big ones. 5. Producers, who furnished those melons free, did not want them referred to as culls. They were simply not shipping melons. 6. V. J. Collins could be relied upon to furnish children for the Gene Ragan Saturday Evening Farm Show on WTVY-TV in Dothan. He did this mainly through the built in four children of daughter, Myrel and the two children of son, Joe Earl and Eilene Pipkin Collins. 7. Mack Hudson, an employee at the Agri Center, could always be depended upon to come up with the impossible last minute items of garbage cans, paper towels, toilet tissue, and numerous other items which are always needed for a festival. 8. Dick Keniss chaired the rst Horse Shows introduced to the festival. Coordinators of the early Beauty Pageants include Pat Balboni, Aldean Adams, Shirley Hightower and Carolyn Sasser. 9. Walker Hughen, the Secretary and Treasurer of the organization, kept immaculate records of who gave it and who got it. These les are still in the archives, together with a storehouse of other valuable and interesting memorabilia associated with the long running historic festival. 10. At the Friday Fun Night, and for the Saturday Event, entertainment was added to make the festival a week-end event. This was a responsibility shared by Dalton Carter and Lamar Townsend. Both events were held on a at bead trailer as a stage, covered with a giant tarpaulin, to protect the bands from the ever scorching sun and the occasional rains. The list of things learned early in the tenure of chairman of the watermelon festival was bringing additional activities to attract more visitors. The antique car show, with John and Sandra Ostrowski chairing the event, Arts and Crafts, along with specialty foods, under the leadership of Judy Corbus, the 5000 Meter Run, headed by Dr. Stan Owens, has steadily increased in participation and the Parade, coordinated by Travis Pitts, has grown in entries each year from an humble beginning. The Pancake Breakfast, the 7-9 a.m. event provided by the Panhandle Shrine Club in Chipley, has become an integral part of the annual watermelon festival. John Claghorn, a horseshoe enthusiast, chairs a Tournament Style Horseshoe Pitch on the grounds at the festival, which continues to gain interest and momentum. Entertainment by big names country and bluegrass bands continues to bring additional crowds to the already bulging at the seams numbers. Current Chairman, Judge Colby Peel, now in his seventh year as leader of the popular festival, has made great strides in the Friday Night show with talent presented and the involvement of other organizations and business leaders in the community. At the time of my retirement as chairman of the festival committee, the group was in agreement to add the crescent parcel of property, on the west side of the massive drainage ditch, to the Agriculture Center acreage to allow for further expansion of the watermelon festival and other agriculture related events. Early in the negotiations, the owners of the parcel changed their minds on selling. In the meantime, the downturn in the economy caused county fathers to take a second look at all purchases. When the sellers reported their willingness to sell the property a year later, the Wells family became the purchaser in order to hold the plot intact, awaiting better economic times to pursue the dream of adding it to the festival grounds. The idea has been to incorporate the additional real estate into a project hopefully to be known as Watermelon Park. The existing house on the property is ideal for housing all the watermelon memorabilia of the past and could be called Watermelon Festival Library. The plot would allow for a pavilion, one or more gazebos, a fence along the ditch and beauti cation of additional owering plants and shrubs to make it a showplace. With the assistance of family members, the site will be open and ready to show a preview of some of the above ideas. Drop by and look it over.

But at the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting on June 12, she requested that it be placed on the ballot so county residents can decide for themselves. One of the boards abilities is to place this on the ballot and allow the citizens to decide, but its completely up to the board, Holmes County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked her what she would do if the vote failed. Then I would back off of the matter, Mason said. I might endorse or support someone else that may come along later, but I would back off trying to get it passed for the golf club. Goodman said that they could construct the ordinance however they wanted, with whatever restrictions they would be comfortable with and that the time limit would allow for three meetings to construct and approve of an ordinance in time to place it on the November ballot. Theres my personal opinion and theres my position to support the decision of the people, Williams said. So I say we place it on the ballot and allow the people to decide. Commissioner Jim King said that no matter what that he would be opposed to the idea. The board approved to put on the ballot to extend the hours of alcohol sales to Sunday contingent on the approval of an ordinance that the board found acceptable with a vote of 3 to 2, with Commissioner Phillip Music and King voting no. The Board approved keeping the 911 Dispatch and 911 Dispatch Director Clint Erickson at their present location and to pay the additional $592 in materials to expand from their contingency fund. Space became an issue with the 911 Dispatch when a grant gave the department $300,000 worth of new equipment as well as additional equipment. The new equipment had to be in place and operational by June 2013, but time was of the essence as their current equipments warranty was running out and the new equipment would have to nd a new storage place till space was acquired. The options were narrowed down to two possibilities: expand their current space or move to the new EOC. The City of Bonifay currently is allowing them to use one of their buildings rent-free and agreed to allow 911 Dispatch to expand as long as dispatch assumed all of the expenses. Several issues arose from remaining in their current building, which included air conditioning as well as time, money and labor to expand. Another issue was that the rst installation of the new equipment was free, but if they had to move the equipment in the next ve years it would cost them $20,000 to move. Erickson said that the City of Bonifay had sent a letter stating that additional footage could be added to the building the 911 Dispatch was occupying to accommodate to the additional equipment and the estimated expense to the Board would be $592. Goodman said he would complete the necessary paperwork with the city to get started as soon as possible. This has been a headache since day one, Commissioner Monty Merchant said. Id like to see that all of the information be presented to the board on the rst go so that it can be voted on. County Engineer Cliff Knauer presented the board with a comprehensive list of all the bridges and roads that have been in need of repair, have applied for federal funding for repairs and those that are in the process of being federally funded to be repaired. I suggest that each district select bridges to be submitted to the Florida Department of Transportations Rural Works Program and that if theres any bridges not listed that you inquire about it, Knauer said. Like Mr. Kings bridge on Alford Road wasnt listed, so now weve got to nd out why it wasnt on the list. Williams had Knauer con rm that County Road 177 already had funds set aside and was scheduled to be repaired in the near future. Several representatives from Thompson Tractor Company, Inc., including sales representative Joel Whitehead, were present to suggest that the board consider the Caterpillar Certied Power Train Program. This means that the county graders would be rebuilt from the inside and would include painting, decals and a certi cate showing that the machine was rebuilt with the three-year, 5,000 hour warranty coverage program, if the board chooses. The board agreed to look over the material and give it some consideration. The board approved of Kings request to replace a recently resigned member of the Development Commission with Shirley Hawthorn. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on June 26 at the BOCC building behind the Holmes County Court House.

There is a mystery that has crept upon us, and so slowly that few have noticed. The mystery is a sh we catch almost every time we bottom sh. Over Destin way it is called mingo. In this area it is referred to as beeliner. The ofcial name is vermillion snapper. Vermillion, by the way, means red. But these are not red snapper. When we shed the Gulf during the 1950s we caught beeliners along with everything else, but they weighed about a half-pound. They were great grouper and king mackerel bait. Sometimes when we caught a bunch some would dry up in the bottom of the boat and I would throw them overboard and they would oat away behind the boat. They wouldnt oat very far before a king mackerel would strike them. They were very good king bait dead or alive and still are good grouper or king bait. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the sh that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. The story was about the opening of snapper season, and this particular picture was intended to show how many snapper you could catch if you went along on the next trip. The only problem was that all these sh were vermillion snapper. There must have been 100 sh hanging over the rail, but only one out of the bunch was a red snapper. The question is, Where did all these big vermillion snapper come from? They certainly werent here years ago. When I worked in the oil patch running a standby boat in the 1970s and 1980s I caught vermillion snapper of this size in about 240 feet of water. I would bring some home and people would have to look twice because they thought they were red snapper. Im not complaining, but I would like to know how such a tiny sh became so large and no one noticed. The world record by the way is 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and was caught in the Gulf of Mexico. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the fish that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. Wednesday, June 20, 2012 OUTDoo OO RS Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net By VALERIE GARMAN229-7843 | @valeriegarman vgarman@starfl.com Meg Lamont describes the night shift at the Fish Inn on Cape San Blas as similar to being a new parent sleep is rare, and you never know what to expect. The Fish Inn is not a motel or bed and breakfast; its the home-base for the  Universi ty of Florida Marine Turtle Research Group, an organization dedicated to protecting the threatened and endangered sea turtle species that nest in Northwest Florida. Lamont, who oversees the program, has been tagging sea turtles on St. Joseph Penin sula since 1998, and new satellite tagging tech nology has allowed more insight into a turtles journey than ever before. With the help of University of Florida biolo gist Brail Stephens and a house full of college interns from across the country, every night from May to August is spent patrolling the beach, from the Stump Hole to the southern boundary of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, for nesting sea turtles to tag. The group at the Fish Inn is essentially nocturnal, spending their nights surveying the beach on ATVs with red headlights from sunup to sundown, their eyes peeled for movement in the sand. Its sort of like being a new parent when you work this job, Lamont said. When you do sleep its just two hours here, two hours there. Last week, the group satellite-tagged 10 sea turtles on the Cape as part of an oil spill research project in the Gulf. The high-tech sat ellite tags provide a turtles exact GPS coordi nates when the turtle comes up for air. Although nesting female turtles have been known to return to nest within ve kilometers of where they previously nested during their nest ing period, Lamont said GPS tracking the nest ing females has shown something unexpected. Its the rst time weve been able to see what the turtles are doing during their nesting periods, Lamont said. These guys are go ing 100 to 150 kilometers away. Its not whats expected. She said many of the turtles that have nested on the Cape have shown up in Alabama, where oil spill research also is being done with satel lite tracking. Although the group works mostly with log gerhead turtles, a threatened species, they also see endangered green sea turtles on Cape San Blas. We dont know very much about turtles once theyre in the water or where they go once they leave the beach, said Lamont, who noted satellite tracking has helped to show where the their habitats lie and what paths they take to get there, information that is essential for pro tecting the species. GPS trackers have provided insight into the turtles foraging grounds, typically located in Southwest Florida and off the Yucatan Penin sula in Mexico. Their foraging areas have all been shal low-water, inshore areas, Lamont said. When youre looking to protect turtles, its equally if not more important than protecting their nest ing area. The turtles have such an intimate relation ship with the inshore environment its so dynamic. Although technology and research has im proved, it is still difcult to know whether the turtle population is increasing or declining. Its difcult to tell with turtles because theyre long-lived, Lamont said. When I rst came (to this area) there were a lot of nests, and it declined, but it declined nationally. In the past few years, weve seen an increase. Lamont said they have seen more nests on the Cape this year than ever before, with 25 turtles tagged this season and the peak nesting season still approaching. Lamont started tagging turtles more than a decade ago as a dissertation project while studying at the University of Florida and esti mates more than 500 turtles have been tagged since then. She began using ipper tags, small metal tags with a serial number that clamp to a tur tles ipper, a process the group still uses in ad dition to satellite tagging. I came to do my dissertation and I just never left, she said. It started with two of us tagging in ve kilometers of Eglin it just got more and more interesting. She said every day is an adventure for the research group on the Cape. In 2010, a 9-foot alligator took up residence on their survey path and hissed and growled at the interns as they rode by. Theyve seen bears and bobcats, tons of storms, broken down vehicles and vehicles stuck in the sand. The beach is also patrolled every morning from 6:30-11 a.m. by a group of volunteers who mark nests and gather information to track the hatching success of the turtles. Sea turtles nest about every two to three years and nest several times during that nest ing year, Lamont said, so the group often sees the same tagged turtle several times a year, and sometimes years later. Lamont remembered one turtle she has seen about 13 or 14 times through the years. She even remembered the serial number on her tag. Every year you want to see what turtles will come, Lamont said. Its like youre seeing an old friend.

Steve Felix, Bryce Lane and John Mariotti are three former area standouts who are competing in indepen dent leagues. Teams in these leagues have no MLB connec tions per se, but some players have been signed from those squads and given more op portunities to advance up the minor-league ladder. Both Felix and Lane were in MLB minor leagues last season with Milwaukee and Houston, respectively. Mari otti was last connected with the Philadelphia Phillies or ganization in 2010. Lane and Mariotti, both Gulf Coast products, play in the Can-Am League. Fe lix is with the Normal (Ill.) CornBelters of the Frontier League. Lane is fourth on the New ark (N.J.) Bears with a .289 batting average. He is third in home runs (three) and tied for second in RBIs (15) while add ing two stolen bases and 15 runs scored as an outelder. Mariotti, a right-handed pitcher, is 3-1 with a 3.19 ERA, 21 strikeouts and ve walks in ve starts for the Quebec Capitales. He has done little to hurt his chances of catch ing the eye of another MLB team by going 16-2 with 145 strikeouts and 27 walks in two seasons with Quebec. Felix, a Rutherford graduate, spent two years in Milwaukees system be fore being released after 45 games on the Rookie League level in 2011. He is hitting .241 with three homers and 11 RBIs in 79 at-bats with the CornBelters.Chipola players signedFormer Chipola stars L.J. Hollins and Jordan Poole re cently signed contracts with the Washington Nationals. Poole, an outelder, was se lected in the 14th round of the MLB Draft, while Hollins, a right-handed side-arm pitch er, was chosen in the 29th round. Poole has been given a tentative assignment of Au burn, N.Y., in the Single-A New York-Penn. League, ac cording to minorleaguebase ball.com. Hollins didnt have an assignment listed as of Friday. Both likely will spend time in extended spring train ing to acclimate to the new level. Fellow Chipola team mate Andrew Toles is still unsigned by Tampa Bay. The Rays drafted the outelder in the third round.By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com This weeks race really wasnt all that exciting, unless you are a Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan then it was a great race. But as many of you know, I am not a Junior fan I am a Tony Stewart fan. But like any other sport, you win some and you lose some. We will go into that later. This was Juniors rst win in 143 races. Little Es last win came in Michigan in June 2008. Can he keep up the winning in Sonoma this weekend? We will see. There were a lot of the drivers having engine issues. Kyle Busch and Josh Wise had to leave the race because of their engines overheating. Wise wasnt out there long before his hopes of a win ended in lap 10, when his engine blew for the second caution of the day. The rst was when Kurt Busch hit the wall in lap 2. He also caused the caution on lap 121 by hitting the wall for caution six. Cautions three and four were completion cautions, so adjustments could be made on the cars. Caution ve came in lap 82 for debris on the track. Then something kind of rare happened: the NASCAR ofcials got out of their clean-up trucks and picked the debris up by hand. Caution seven came out in lap 127 when the star of the last couple of weeks, Joey Logano, hit the wall hard and had to be taken to the ineld care center as a precaution. He also took Kasey Kahne along for the ride into that wall. The eighth and nal caution of the 200-lap Quicken Loans 400 came out when Denny Hamlins engine exploded. Now, to the stuff circulating on the web about Stewart and Junior they are buddies, and I feel like they probably rigged up the whole thing before the race. And if it wasnt, then I totally agree with what Tony said: Its not a national holiday just because he won. I am sure he was upset about coming in second, but wouldnt you be? Now on to something else. Kurt Busch has harassed yet another reporter. This time it was Marty Smith from ESPN. Come on, Kurt, youre a good driver just keep your mouth shut and fulll your obligations so you can get a sponsor. James Finch has given you another chance. I would suggest you take it and be thankful for it. You have the potential to win in Sonoma. Just make it a repeat of last year. Keep your head held high, Kurt, and you can put this all behind you. Until next week, NASCAR fans.Special to The NewsBILOXI, Miss.

In spite of what many might think, though the state announced it might close the Ponce de Leon Springs State Park in 2010, it is still going strong, with an average of more than 1,000 visitors per week. The park is named after Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who led the rst Spanish expedition to Florida in 1513 searching for the Fountain of Youth. Though the crisp, clear waters of the Ponce de Leon Springs wont make you forever young, the older generation of the area say they feel like a kid again when they visit the old swimmin hole. However, the old swimmin hole has changed quite a bit over the ages. Before the Ponce de Leon Springs became a recreational area, it was a source of drinking water for the European settlers and American Indians. The land surrounding the springs was used for harvesting timber and turpentine, which was the majority of the industry for that area. The longleaf pines were a perfect source of timber for building homes, businesses and the railroad that would be crucial for developing the Florida we know today. Those pines were also a good resource for turpentining, the process of cutting deep grooves in the bark to cause it to pour resin, which was used in the making of glue, ink, paint, varnishes, sealants for wood homes and many other useful products. The earliest recorded owners were the Smithgall family, who owned the spring in the 1920s and built it to be a tourist attraction and recreational destination. The Smithgall family built a bathhouse, concession stand and skating rink, installed a large slide and created a barrier around the spring to prevent erosion. Though a lot has changed since the Florida Park Service inducted the springs as a state park on Dec. 21, 1970, many things remain the same. The springs are still a major draw, with water temperatures maintaining a constant 68 degrees with a continual feed of 14 million gallons per day by two underground water ows and caves for exploring. Visitors also are drawn by the natural features, such as nature trails with seasonal Ranger-guided tours, picnicking in the park with grills and pavilions available to the public, shing opportunities for catsh, largemouth bass, chain pickerel and pansh and even the occasional wedding. One attraction the park is striving to add because of popular demand is camping, according to Ponce de Leon Springs State Park INDEXSociety . .................................

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County NewsRanger Aaron Miller. Theres a lot to factor in when developing camping grounds, Miller said. Theres the natural balance that must be maintained, and then theres accommodating to the visitors. I know with further study well be able to nd a happy median for the two. Another signicant aspect to the state park, far from the public eye, is the natural phenomenon that sets Ponce de Leon Springs State Park from every other state park in Florida, the Sarracenia purpurea, commonly known as the pitcher plant. Miller said Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is the rst Florida state park to have these plants thrive. The pitcher plant is a carnivore, acquiring most of its nutrients from its prey, which is primarily ants, ies, spiders, moths and even mosquitoes, and is more commonly found in the northern region. Both digestive enzymes and bacteria aid the digestion of prey, and as the pitcher leaves grow older, the community of bacteria assists the plant in digestion. Miller said the red pitcher plant is especially rare in this area, especially because the normal pitcher plants known for taking up root in Florida are the purple pitcher plants. Funny thing is we have a hard time growing the red pitcher plants, but the purple pitcher plants love the marshy areas and particularly prefer the type of moss that grows there, Miller said. We have two other ones that are common here on the park, the trumpet pitcher plants and the parrot pitcher plants. The park is also home to numerous Gopherus polyphemus, commonly known as the gopher tortoise. Gopher tortoises are known for their burrows that help shelter more than 360 other species. The gopher tortoise is now under the protection of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. There are stringent laws and procedures developers must go through to build on gopher tortoise inhabited lands because of the rapid destruction of the species in careless development. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is open 365 days out of the year from 8 a.m. until sunset. Entrance fees are $4 per vehicle with up to eight people, $2 per individual, or pavilions can be reserved for $26.75. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is also interested in making copies of any old photos or memorabilia from the past that might have some attachment to the park. Please mail photos to 2850 Ponce de Leon Springs Road, Ponce de Leon, FL 32455, call 836-4281 or email Miller at Aaron. D.Miller@DEP.State. FL.us.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 www.boatangel.com 800 1 CAR L ANGE Special to Extra BONIFAY Bonifay Middle Schools Home Economics Enrichment Class has been working on quilts that will be given to kids in the hospital. Sixty quilts were made for donation this semester. These quilts were made by sixth-, seventhand eighthgrade students that are enrolled in Home Economics for their enrichment class the second semester of the year. The quilts will soon be donated to a Childrens Miracle Networks Hospital. This project gives students an opportunity to learn and use their talents and abilities in a rewarding way. The hospital that these quilts are going to be donated to allows direct delivery. This means that Mrs. Rhodes is allowed to take the quilts and put them directly in the hands of the children. When speaking with Donna Rhodes, BMS Home Economics teacher, she expressed, It is very rewarding to see the smiles on their faces. Its hard on your heart, but you know that youre giving comfort to a child in need as well as their parents. The emotions with each delivery can be overwhelming. However, I nd good with each visit. Its a calling, once you go into a hospital and hand out this kind of love, it changes your life. Receiving a quilt makes these children very happy. The second quilt show of this school year was held on May 31, 2012. Students, parents, siblings as well as grandparents were invited to our quilt show. Around 100 people attended the show. During the quilt show, Pastor, Michael Goodson blessed the quilts. He asked for there to be comfort and healing for the children receiving the quilts. He also blessed the children who gave of themselves while making these quilts for others. During the quilt show we honored a child in out county with a quilt. Her name is Kaylee Barton, daughter of Chad and Ashley Barton. Kaylee has some mobility problems and will be having surgeries in the near future to help her walk. The quilt was made by Megan Erickson, a sixth grader at BMS. We here at Bonifay Middle School will accept donations of new, brightly colored, kid friendly cotton fabrics. We will also accept polyester, low loft batting to complete the quilts. If interested in donatin g, you may bring items by Bonifay Middle School. For more information go to www.quilts forkids.org. Its 5:30 p.m. and you just got home from work when there is a knock at the door. It is a police ofcer explaining that you have 15 minutes to evacuate your family and pets from your home as a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed close to your property. What could you grab in your house in 15 minutes that is necessary for your family and pets livelihood? Dr. Deb Zoran, associate professor and member of the Veterinary Emergency Response Team at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), presented the previous example and asked Could you gather up your personal documents, your pets rabies documents, your pets food, enough clothing and personal belongings for yourself in 15 minutes and not forget anything? To ensure nothing is forgotten, Zoran recommends a preparedness plan for family and pets in case emergencies or natural disasters occur. She said this plan should include discussing locations for evacuation, meeting sites incase family members are separated or cell phones do not work, and who is taking care of the pets. Zoran strongly encouraged not leaving a pet in an emergency situation. Rule of thumb that pet owners should always use is that if you are evacuating, take your pet with you. Dont assume that you will be able to come home to take care of them because you probably wont, she said. Zoran suggested people prepare a go bag, a little bag that is packed with enough clothing, medicine, food, water, and other necessities. This bag should also include important documents such as IDs and cash incase power is out at ATMs and banks. The other thing that needs to be in your go bag is a little stash of cash because otherwise you may not be able to pay for gas, food, or anything if something truly monstrous occurs where the power shuts off, she said. There should also be a go bag for pets as well. Zoran said this should include their carrier, leashes, food, and water. For cats, this would also include a litter box and litter. As with people, the go bag should include the pets vaccination and medical records in addition to identication documents in case of separation. Zoran said this would include information about micro chipping or photographs of the animals. For both humans and pets, Zoran said the go bag should contain supplies for three to ve days. Remember, the emergency situation is not always a train derailment. Other disasters known to Texas are hurricanes, tornadoes, wildres, and earthquakes. A preparedness plan can help in all emergencies and natural disasters. The truth of the matter is preparing helps you think more logically and clearly because you know what to take and where things are, Zoran said. Zoran explained that all disasters are different so it is important to be able to adapt to the situation. The preparedness plan works until disaster hits and then what do you do? You adapt to the situation. If you have a plan and an idea, it is much easier to adapt, she said.

Good News Bible Acts 1:8Place your message here for only $8.00 per week.First Baptist Churchcome as you areMike Orr, Pastor1300 South Blvd. PO Box 643 Chipley, Florida (850) 638-1830Place your message here for only $8.00 per week.This Message Courtesy ofGive Expecting Nothing in ReturnThe saying Beware of Greeks bearing gifts is an old piece of wisdom which advises us to not trust our enemies, after the story in the Iliad of the Trojan horse, a gift that ultimately destroyed the city of Troy and its inhabitants. But there was also another reason to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, and that was that they always expected something in return, of comparable value. Gift-giving in ancient cultures was meant to be reciprocated and this carries over to modern times. But, a true gift should be something freely given without any expectation of return. If there is an expectation of a comparable return then we are really bartering rather than giving. So, we should give with a spirit of genuine charity, not expecting anything in return. Test your ability to give in this spirit by giving anonymously, so that the recipient wont know who it came from. This isnt always practical, but can sometimes be done by sending someone an anonymous gift through the mail or by arranging for an intermediary to give the gift for you, perhaps even allowing the intermediary to take credit for the gift. Wanting to be thanked for a gift is all about our ego, and while it is only natural to desire thanks, it is better to give expecting nothing in return.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser1364 N.

Matthew 6:2-4 BY RAY REYNOLDSGet yourself a glass of tea, shed say as I walked in the door, happy to be back home in Esto. Annie Laura Kidd made good sweet tea the key was Louisiane brand tea bags, shed tell you and I was happy to be back at her kitchen table, catching up on the local news. Annie kept her nger on the pulse in Esto, having settled into a new brick home only a few steps from the old unpainted wood-frame house where she was born. I didnt want to come back to Esto, shed acknowledge, but her husband Jimmy insisted, and their daughters Liz and Sara t right in, living among rst and second and third cousins. It was fun at their house. Something was always going on. Annie was ready for a hand of cards, or a word game, or a good-natured quarrel with Jimmy. Maybe a jigsaw puzzle was in the works on the dining room table. Usually there was a pound cake, or some cookies and orange nut bars at Christmas. My mother complained Id rather be at Annies than at home. It was a close second. And then, after my mother died, it was true. Annie was another mother. The years passed, and I moved farther away. But Ive always looked forward to trips home to Esto, and to a glass of Annies tea, and all the local news. A few years ago, when she turned 80, all of Esto turned out for a surprise party in the fellowship hall of the Esto Baptist Church. And it was a surprise, one of the few local stirrings to escape her attention. She said at the end of the party: I reckon Ill stick around and aggravate my younguns a while longer. She did. Her 88th birthday came and went last August 25. When I was home in the spring, it seemed clear there might not be another birthday. We had a good visit, and a few glasses of sweet tea, as she drifted in and out. As the time came to leave, I thanked her for being my other mother. She was fully present. Ive been proud to be your other mother, she said, looking into my eyes. Well, are you ready to go? I asked. Im ready, she said. When the time comes, Im ready to go. We hugged again, and as I turned to walk toward the door she said, Ill see you in Heaven.

Vacation Bible SCHOOL Faith BRIEFS FOUR CALVARY IN CONCERTSee you in heavenPage B4BY REV. JAMES L. SNYDERSpeaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The rst thing is to de ne what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder, and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning, and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I nish my to-do-list. Last Monday, I had just nished my morning cup of joe and nished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks, but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue rmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephonebilling mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My dif culty was simply that I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, ddlesticks does not seem to carry much signi cance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L.
