TDC awards event grants By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Tourist Development Council approved a handful of grants Monday for upcoming events, including a grant for the Flea Across Florida Yard Sale event planned Sept. 15. The Merchants of Historic Downtown Chipley, represented by Barbara James and Kathy Foster, submitted a request to the TDC for a $1,000 grant for advertising Chipley Flea Market Days, to be held in conjunction with Flea Across Florida. This is a new event and has never been funded by the TDC before, Council Member Ted Everett said. Flea Across Florida is a threeday event in September that will offer yard sales and ea market stalls along Highway 90 from Live Oak in Suwannee County to Pensacola, James said. James went to the City Council to get permission to hold the event earlier this month, and the plan is to offer 10-foot ea market spaces for $10 each to vendors along Railroad Avenue in downtown Chipley. We hope the banks will open up their parking lots to employees, or to the public, so they can set up booths. There also will be booths set up around the Historical Society Museum as well, James said. There will be people who make the entire drive from Live Oak to Pensacola, Foster said. Foster said Debbie Goulding and she were asked to provide marketing for the event aiming toward southern Alabama, Georgia and the coastal areas to advertise the event. There was much discussion about how to track attendance to the event, which ended with Foster and James saying they felt like it would be possible to get some numbers on attendees at the event. The TDC also approved a $1,000 grant for the Seacrest Wolf Preserves Howl-O-Ween event. The Oct. 19-21 event will feature several events including a Dog-A-Ween contest, a haunted hayride, and arts and crafts for children. See TDC A2 Lawsuit: City must turn over session transcripts By ALI HELGOTH 522-5118 | @AHelgoth ahelgoth@pcnh.com CHIPLEY The Washington County News won a legal victory Tuesday when Vernon was given 10 days to turn over a transcript of an April executive session. Circuit Court Judge Chris Patterson ruled the city violated the states Sunshine Laws during the executive session held on April 23 to update new city council members and the mayor on pending litigation. The bottom line is the whole purpose of governing in the sunshine is so the public knows what is happening with their governing of cials, Patterson said. Although elected of cials are allowed to go into executive session for the reason cited by the citys attorney Kerry Adkison, the law outlines strict regulations for how the session must begin, and it requires the governing body to reconvene in public and formally end the executive session. Randal Seyler, managing editor of the Washington County News, testi ed he doesnt know whether the meeting ever actually ended. Patterson said he was moved by that statement, and asked rhetorically if the meeting was ongoing. The Sunshine Laws also require a transcript of the meeting be led within a reasonable amount of time. The transcript becomes public after the pending litigation ends. The city has not led a transcript. WATERMELON FESTIVAL DRAWS THOUSANDS Author tells of struggles, triumphs with MS By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY In 1992, Tallahassee attorney and Bonifay native Bruce Pelham received frightening news he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. With the onset of the disease, walking 150 feet was a struggle and required Pelham to rest before moving on. Speech was dif cult, and MS also caused daily fatigue, sensitivity to heat, shortterm memory loss and an interruption of the thinking process. As a result of the disease, Pelham appeared to be drunk while walking, even being stopped once by a policeman in a mall. Now, 20 years later, Pelham is mostly symptomfree, and he attributes his healing to exercise and prayer. To get the message out about his struggle with MS, Pelham has written a book Im Not Drunk I Just Have MS. The book is available on the authors website and also at Kings Discount Drugs in Chipley. Pelham was born in Geneva, Ala., and raised in Bonifay. He graduated from Holmes County High School in 1963, then went to Tallahassee to Florida State University. After working as an accountant, he returned to FSU to attend law school and had a successful career in real estate and law. Early on after I was diagnosed, I called a woman in Cleveland, Ohio, I had RANDAL SEYLER | Times-Advertiser Volunteers hand out watermelon slices on Friday at Pals Park during the 56th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival parade Saturday in Chipley.

Hours will begin at 1 p.m. Oct. 19, with campers arriving. Oct. 20 events will be gin at 9:30 a.m. and continue until about 10 p.m. The event will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Oct. 21. Owner Wayne Watkins told the coun cil members the event was expanded to three days because of the popularity of last years Howl-O-Ween. The Washington Historical Preser vation Societys grant request for $1,000 for Fall Into History also was approved. Fall Into History is an event designed to share Washington County history through demonstrations, storytellers and song. It will be held at the Farmers Market Complex and also will feature vendors. The event will be from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. One highlight of the historical societys event is the scarecrow contest, society presi dent Dorothy Odom said. Weve already had people getting excited about their entries for this year, Odom said. You dont know how many people have told me theyve run into people who were travel ing through the town and they remember the scarecrows. The nal grant was for $1,500 for the Wash ington County Chamber of Commerces Gun and Knife Show to be held Oct. 13-14 at the Agricultural Center. Everett, who abstained from voting on the grant, told the TDC members the gun show would replace the outdoor festival, which the chamber used to hold. It got so the requirements for the outdoor festival and the animals, the hay the water and the volunteers, that it was just harder and harder for the chamber to do, Everett said. The gun and knife show portion of the outdoor festival was popular, however. Tables for vendors at the show will be $60 with a limit of 10 tables per vendor, Everett said. The tables will be on a rst come, rst serve basis. In other business, the TDC voted unani mously to vacate the seat on the TDC held by City Council Member Roger Sloan due to absenteeism. Sloans seat on the council is a statutory seat, which means the TDC is required to have a seat for an elected ofcial from the largest municipality in the county, which would be Chipley. Secretary Jim Town told Chairman Joel Pate that he would prepare a letter for the Chi pley City Council notifying them of the vacancy and requesting a replacement for Sloan.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Patterson said he had to strictly interpret the states open meeting law, and based on evidence pre sented the city did not follow those regulations. We appreciate Judge Pattersons recognition of the importance of public record laws that are intend ed to generate condence in workings of government and in the application in this case of the city of Vernon and not complying with those laws, said Washington County News Publisher Nicole Bareeld. Access to public records and governing in the sunshine are the foundation for trust and accountability for actions taken by our elected ofcials. Adkison argued because the city council did not take any ofcial action, the executive session did not constitute a meeting and was not subject to the Sun shine Laws. He also suggested the discussion should be covered by attorney-client privilege. Patterson disagreed the meeting was exempt from the law, but he is giving Adkison the opportunity to argue the transcripts of the meeting contain privi leged information. He ordered the transcripts be turned over to at torneys for Washington County News and its parent company, Freedom Communications, within 10 days. He is giving an additional 10 days for Adkison to ar gue why the information should not immediately be made public. Adkison said after the hearing he is going to com ply with the judges order to turn over the transcript, but no decision has been made about whether he will argue against making the document public. The lawsuit was led in late May after weeks of failed attempts to get the city to respond to or dis cuss a public records request with The News or its attorney. read about who had MS. She was a vice president of a university, and when I got her on the phone she said she had just spent four hours shoveling snow, Pelham said. When asked how she was able to shovel snow when she had been severely limited by MS, she replied, I prayed each day, saying that when God was ready, he would take this from me. Pelham adopted her prayer, but added his own line: In the meantime, let me know what I need to do to facilitate the process. Another key to his recovery was exer cise, Pelham said. When I was rst diag nosed, my general practitioner told me to walk three or four times a week for at least 30 minutes, Pelham followed his doctors advice, although it wasnt always easy. When I started I could barely walk 150 feet. After 18 months, I walked a mile without resting. In the intervening years, Pelham says he has walked about 8,000 miles, walking as much as 16 miles in a stretch. He still walks 3 miles every day. MS is a disease that is difcult to diag nose. There are many symptoms and of ten no two cases are alike, Pelham said. He developed small scars over his brain, which appeared in MRI scans. The scars interfered with the way the brain was able to communicate with the body. But by 2002, the scars had disappeared from the MRI scans. The doctors had no experience like it, nor did the specialists they talked to in Eu rope, Pelham said. One thing Pelham did not do was take the MS medications his doctor prescribed. I explain why in the book, but the medica tions have many serious side effects. I decided to write the book to encour age people not to give up, Pelham said. Three years ago, he had been accepted to the University of Floridas Master of Law and Taxation program, but he decided to write his book instead of pursuing the ad vanced degree. Exercise is so crucial to health, but so is prayer and attitude, Pelham said. My book is not a recipe for a cure, but it is the story of my struggle with MS, an explana tion of how it was for me. Now although Pelham apparently is healthy, he still suffers some symptoms when walking in extreme heat, and his doctors continue to monitor his health. Still he said he said he believes he has come a long way since his diagnosis in 1992. Prayer played a huge part in my re covery; my belief in God made a huge dif ference in my life, he said.

I wasnt crazy about the humidity Friday night, but in spite of the weather I thought the 56th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival was a great event. I was impressed by the musical performances on Friday night, and also impressed by the large number of people who braved the weather to come enjoy the festivities. Between tropical storm Debby and the typical summer humidity, everyone looked fairly soggy after an hour or so at Pals Park Friday. And soggy though they might have been, most festival goers also looked happy. Watermelon rolling looked to be dif cult especially for the kids whose watermelons probably weighed a signi cant portion of their body weight but that didnt stop youngsters from trying to boot their fruit over the nish line. The seed spitting was not as hard, but apparently it takes some skill to launch watermelon seeds any distance. Or maybe it just takes a lot of hot air. At the annual Ding Dong Days festival in Dumas, Ark., I remember the watermelon seed spitting competition being reserved for politicians, who are usually full of wind. Saturdays parade was probably the longest festival parade I have ever personally witnessed outside of Mardi Gras, and doubtless it was the numerous political candidates that added to the length of the parade. I was surprised there werent more classic cars or antique tractors, but maybe due to the election year the machinery took a back seat. Saturday the wind kicked up and the rain started about 1 p.m., but before the weather headed south there were lots of people at the Washington County Agricultural Center enjoying the booths and the activities, including the Big Watermelon Auction, which was being held before a full house when I stopped in on Saturday. All in all, the festival seemed to move along without a hitch, which is a great testament to the men and women who volunteer behind the scenes. Something as wonderful as the Watermelon Festival doesnt just happen. It takes dozens of volunteers working for months in advance to make an event like the festival happen. And for it to happen so smoothly, well, that takes an expert hand and lots of hard work. Washington County Judge Colby Peel, chairman of the festival, and his volunteers deserve a big thank you and a round of applause for their efforts, so the next time you see one these volunteers be sure to thank them for their efforts. Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out and supported us in our fundraiser ( sh fry and grilled chicken plates) this past Saturday, June 23. We had a very successful event thanks to the support received from our community. If I tried to thank everyone individually I would surely miss someone, but the key people I would like to say thank you to for the donations received are the local businesses in Bonifay and the New Hope Fire Department for loaning the decorations. Also, thank you to the ladies and men in the community who gave of their time to supply the side items as well as the desserts and to all the volunteers who gave of their time to cook the sh, chicken. Again thank you! Sincerely, Alfred Sellers Assistant Chief Pittman VFD Bonifay The Prattler has previously explained his feeling of responsibility for reporting on the passing of noted country, folk and bluegrass artist with long, enviable histories of entertaining millions of fans in the past. It is my sad duty to report the death of highly in uential guitarist, singer and songwriter Doc Watson passed away on May 29 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., following colon surgery. He was 89. Your writer has known Doc Watson by reputation only for many years. It was my privilege to play, as well as enjoy, his music and songs for the 22-year broadcast, Bluegrass Express, on WBGC-A.M. in Chipley. I rst saw him and enjoyed his live performance at the bluegrass festival staged by Mike Lipford of Marianna. This event was held in the beautiful wooded rolling hills in Jackson County just south of Marianna during the 1980s. I last heard Doc in concert when Hester and I attended an inside bluegrass festival in Eureka Springs, Ark., in 2002. The death of his son, Merle, had happened in the interim. The loss of his son, Merle, is one of the saddest incidents occurring in the artists life. Watson and his son began touring together in the late 1960s, with Merle playing guitar and banjo in addition to serving as driver for his blind guitarist father. During this time the pair began to reach a worldwide audience, helped by collaborations with Flatt and Scruggs, Chet Atkins and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Merle passed away in 1985 after an accident on the family farm. It is reported that he suffered a serious injury while in his carpentry workshop when a band saw cut deeply into his hand. He was attempting to drive to a nearby hospital using a farm tractor when the second accident happened with the farm machine. The legacy of Merle Watson lives on with the annual mammoth MerleFest music festival carried on each year on the campus of North Wilkesboro College in Wilkesboro, N.C. Vernon native Jack Roche, a career professor at this institution of higher learning, has invited the Prattler to attend the highly publicized event, but it was never my privilege to do so. Another plan that I wanted to carry through was to visit Doc Watson at his home in Boone, N.C., knock on his door and invite him to have a hamburger with me at the noted Boone Tavern, located there. Regretfully, this dream of mine never materialized. Our musical friend, which I must admit I never personally acquainted, was born Arthel Lane Watson in Deep Gap, N.C.

Sherry Snell, administrative assistant/insurance and safety coordinator, accepted the award at a recent conference that she attended on behalf of the County. The award is for the preferred member who has shown an overall decrease in frequency and severity of claims for all lines of insurance coverage for the last three years. Members must utilize all PRM Loss Prevention Services and participate in Drug Free Workplace and Workplace Safety Credit Programs to be eligible. Holmes County won the award competing with 47 other counties and cities. This is the second year in a row that Holmes County has received a safety award. Last year they received the Most Improved Safety Performance award. The safety committee members are Sherry Snell (safety committee secretary), Willie Sewell, Albert Jordan, Eddie Whitehurst (safety committee chairman), Jeff Whitehurst (safety committee vice chairman) Greg Barton and Gerald Truett. Special thanks to the Holmes County Board of Commissioners who have supported the monthly training programs that the committee maintains that resulted in this great honor. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS The safety committee members include Sherry Snell (safety committee secretary), Willie Sewell, Albert Jordan, Eddie Whitehurst (safety committee chairman), Jeff Whitehurst (safety committee vice chairman) and Greg Barton. Not pictured is Gerald Truett. Holmes County receives second safety award member shouted out Call him Doc! The name stuck with him the rest of his life. Watson was blind since before he was two years old. He attended North Carolinas school for the visually impaired in Raleigh. When he was 13, he taught himself how to play When the Roses Bloom in Dixie on a borrowed guitar, and his father bought him a $12 Stella as a reward. In 1947, Doc Watson married Rosa Lee Carlton, daughter of ddler Gaither Carlton, and they had two children, Eddy Merle and Nancy Ellen. Watsons rst playing gigs were with a local rockabilly/swing band, but he became a full-time professional with the folk/traditional music revival of the 1960s. His self-styled solo debut appeared in 1964, and he was represented until his passing by Folklore Productions. Over the course of his career, Doc Watson recorded more than 50 albums and won Grammy Awards including a Lifetime Achievement Grammy. He was also a recipient of the National Medal of Arts and a National Heritage Fellowship. In 2011, a life-size statue of Watson was unveiled in Boone, N.C., on the spot where he formerly played for tips. At his request, the statues inscription reads Just One of the People. Doc Watson was known to add a personal note to a song just prior to singing it. He did this at concerts and on recordings. On one album in my collection he announces that he would do a gospel song, then explained: A gospel song is one that attributes honor and praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He then sang I Want To Love Him More. Another ballad-type song, The Orphan Girl was introduced with an explanation that traced it back to being sung by his great-grandmother Watson. These same handwritten lyrics are in Hesters possession, handed down from her great-grandmother, Martha Carolyn White Lee. Hester had previously thought that maybe her ancestor wrote the song, but Doc Watson dashed those hopes. The unique and innovative style of guitar picking in uenced scores of guitarist who followed, and his repertoire of American Music was vast. President Bill Clinton said, in awarding Watson the National Medal of Arts, There may not be a serious, committed baby boomer alive who didnt at some point in his or her youth try to spend a few minutes at least trying to learn to pick a guitar like Doc Watson. The legendary Doc Watson is survived by his wife Rosa Lee; daughter Nancy Ellen; grandchildren Richard Watson and Karen Watson Norris; a brother, David Watson; and several great-grandchildren. A Private Funeral was planned for this icon of traditional music. See you all next week. PRATTLE from page A4 Safety committee scores safety awards for two consecutive years

This week I reach the big 6-5. When I was in my teens I thought anyone over 30 was old, and anyone in their 60s was discovered in an Egyptian tomb. How times have changed. Now anyone in their 80s is considered old or should I say lucky. I was trying to figure out just what the advantages of reaching 65 were aside from getting coffee at McDonalds for 60 cents a cup. Well, there are all sorts of bargains if you are willing to weed them out. One is that you dont need a saltwater fishing license once you turn 65. Mine was about to expire and I thought I had better get one before snapper season. Then I found out I didnt need a license after I reached 65. It just so happened my license expired a month before my birthday and snapper season opened June 1. I figured it was a shame to shell out the money to fish a year and to have it in force for only a month. I asked at the tag office if there was any kind of exemption in such cases, and sure enough there is one as long as you only fish freshwater. Anyway, other advantages of reaching 65 include never having to buy a hunting license again, or get a $25 quota permit to hunt wildlife management areas. Ill never have to purchase another freshwater fishing license. Ill never have to buy another turkey stamp or a black powder permit or another bow permit. As a matter of fact, the only permit I would have to buy is a federal duck stamp and I dont intend to ever hunt another duck. So, there are advantages to reaching 65. My friend added that on top of those I also can draw Social Security. I had to think about that one for a minute. No, I dont think so. Thats no great prize. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Jackson and other perched lakes functioning normally By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Its something thats happened countless times over the ages, but Lake Jackson is almost dry. About 18 months ago, the 4,000-acre lake north of Tallahassee began falling and little water now remains, except in isolated pools. Jackson last went dry in 2006, before that in 2002 and 1999. The culprit, if you want to call it that, is simple: lack of rainfall, according to Michael Hill, a sheries biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Tallahassee area was about 6 inches below normal rainfall in 2010, about 20 inches in 2011 and this year were already down 5-6 inches, Hill said. Just more than a week ago, he said there were about 10 acres of water in the middle part of the lake, which connects to Porter Sink and directly to the Floridan Aquifer. By Tuesday, almost all the water in the middle area of the lake went down Porter Sink. Hill said Lakes Jackson, Iamonia and Miccosukee are all perched lakes, which means the lake basins are above a thin limestone layer and the Floridan Aquifer. He said the sinks, including Porter Sink and lesser-known Lime Sink on Lake Jackson, are areas where the limestone far below the lake bed has simply dissolved or given away. When theres lots of rain and the water table is high, the sinks are still there in all of these perched lakes and functioning as a conduit to the Florida aquifer, Hill said. In 1938, he said those wanting to stabilize the lake level in Iamonia placed a dam around the primary sink. In the 1950s the same thing was done on Lake Miccosukee in Jefferson County. Since then, the gates to the Iamonia dam have been permanently removed. On Miccosukee, they have been temporarily removed to allow the lake bottom to dry out. What people didnt understand is when you stabilize the water levels, enormous amounts of organic matter settle on the bottom and this muck affects sh reproduction and depresses the amount of oxygen in the water, which game sh need, he said. Natural lake uctuations keep the lake bottoms free of excess muck and function another important way. When the lake bed is exposed for any time you get a lot of plants that germinate and grow. When lakes re ll, that covered vegetation fuels an incredible growth in microscopic plants and animals, which sh utilize, Hill said. Thats the reason you have such spectacular shing on these re lled lakes. Although people want to improve on Mother Nature, Hill said its best to wait for more normal rainfall patterns. By JESSICA BASHAM THERRIAULT Special to The News Herald Not everyone has a green backyard with bushes and trees. Florida is a peninsula, with the longest coastline of all states in the continental United States. Most of Floridas almost 19 million residents live less than 60 miles from the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, making the beach, sand and salt water their backyards. So lets go on a summer backyard beach safari. Begin your treasure hunt by shelling. Take a walk along the waters edge, and you will discover hundreds of varieties of shells hurled onto the beach by waves that roll or crash onto the shore. Seashells once were living organisms. The shell is the hard, protective outer part of an animal, usually a mollusk. Mollusks are animals such as scallops, snails, clams and oysters. These creatures make their own shell. When the animal dies or gets eaten by another creature, the empty shell stays empty or becomes a home to other sea critters like hermit crabs. Shelling provides hours of fun while looking for that one-of-a-kind, colorful treasure. Before you keep a shell, make sure there is nothing living in it. Otherwise you need a special license to keep it. Another activity is digging in the sand for coquinas (Ko-KEE-nahs) and mole crabs. Its easy to spend hours getting lost in the color and movement of coquinas and the squirms of mole crabs. Coquinas are tiny clams that live just below the surface of the sand where the waves roll in. Tides carry and deposit them along the shoreline, where they feed on microscopic organisms in the sand. They are a dazzling sight with wonderful colors, like tiny jewels. Sometimes you dont need to dig because incoming waves will unearth them. Watch as they furiously dig, seeking cover and food as each wave rolls back out to sea. Mole crabs are small and do not look like a typical crab, nor do they look like a mole. They are fast and will bury themselves quickly in an effort to hide. To nd one, dig gently in sand near the water, just as if you are looking for coquinas. As you dig, they might bury deeper into the sand but if you can get underneath one, then you can scoop it up. They might tickle you, but dont worry; they do not bite. Be gentle, because they are soft and fragile. When you are nished observing the crab gently place it back into the soft, wet sand. Bird-watching is another fun activity. Gulls live on the beach and are known to swoop in to steal your food. Pesky as they might be, they are still fun to watch. Other birds to watch at the beach are pelicans. Pelicans glide just above the waters surface, and then SPLOOSH! They dive into the water headrst to grab a shy meal. Its also fun to look for bird tracks in the wet sand. Can you identify the tracks you nd? Do not chase the birds to make them y. Simply watch and admire their behavior. While on your safari, be sure to wear sunscreen so you can avoid sunburn, and have fun this summer.

Local Washington County News | A7 Wednesday, June 27, 2012 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Community Canning Center might be down, but dont count it out. Annette Lanham, a master food volunteer who works with the county extension of ce to teach pressure canning and food preservation classes in Washington and Holmes counties, is working to reopen the center under the auspices of the extension of ce. Lanham addressed the Washington County Board of County Commissioners on Thursday and presented her plans for the canning center. It is too late to do anything this year, but I hope we can have the center open for 2013, Lanham told the commissioners. In each of the ve classes weve taught this year, students have asked about the status of the canning center, expressing an interest in utilizing the facility, she said. Its my desire to see the canning center reopened, and I have been researching what it would take to make that happen. Lanham said the center last was open for an entire season in 2009, under the direction of the Tri-County Community Council. In 2010 the center was open on a limited basis, and in 2011 it was by appointment only. The centers boiler is no longer functioning, and the expense to repair it is estimated at being more than $30,000. An estimate from the naval facility in Panama City, where the center had hoped to nd an economical replacement boiler, turned out to be about $17,000, Lanham said. I have researched options for removing the boiler altogether, replacing the steam canners with conventional stove-top canners and operating the canning center on propane, Lanham said. Removal of the boiler will alleviate the requirement to have a trained boiler operator on-site. Retro tting costs would be considerably less than the $37,000 boiler replacement estimate. Lanham asked the commissioners to consider funding the center with a $5,000 budget line-item next year. The BOCC used to send money to Tri-County earmarked for the canning center, she said, and the money could be used to reopen the center. I plan on going to the city councils in Chipley, Wausau, Vernon and Ebro and asking them for funding, too, she said. The city of Vernon owns the canning center building, but the building currently has no liability insurance coverage. The city is looking into adding the facility to its municipal coverage, Lanham said. Tri-County has also taken equipment from the center, but they have agreed to return most of it if the center can be reopened, Lanham said, including a peasheller and a potato-peeler. Ive been looking for a pea-sheller, Sheriff Bobby Haddock said. Id like to see if we couldnt work something out that would be bene cial to both the center and the county. There you have it, Chairman Hulan Carter joked. The sheriff is going to fund it.

Discovery Dome Planetarium coming to the public library CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Clint Bowyer dominated in wine country in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 on Sunday. The win at Sonoma gave him two rsts. It was his rst career win during a road race, and it was his rst win of the 2012 season. Bowyer lead 70 of the 112 laps, holding off Kurt Busch for most of the race. Bowyer and Busch held this placing until the last lap under a green/ white checkered, when Tony Stewart took the second place slot from Busch. This was the second straight week Stewart won second. Jeff Gordons luck was just the same as it has been for the last several weeks bad. This week it wasnt due to engine problems or anything major, he simply ran out of gas. Gordon managed to get a sixth-place nish. Maybe his luck will change in Kentucky. For the second week in a row, Marcos Ambrose was the pole sitter at the start, and he nished eighth. With only two caution ags, the race wasnt what some NASCAR fans wanted to see. On lap 42, Josh Wise spun out but was able to save it without bringing out a caution. As lap 48 came and went, it marked the longest race time without a caution. The rst caution didnt come until lap 82 when Tomy Drissi crashed. The second and nal caution came as Kyle Busch, Juan Montoya and Paul Menard spun out on the track. There were three rounds of green ag pit stops the rst was on laps 34-37, then again on laps 49-52, the last round of green ag pit stops were on laps 69-76. This weekends race schedule is as follows: The Camping World Truck Series will be racing on June 28, at 7:18 p.m. The race is being held at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Ky., The winner of last years UNOH 225 was Kyle Busch.

Local A8 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 27, 2012 CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCNHCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Driving from coast to coast in an electric car built by the hands of at-risk high school teens sounds like a risky proposition, but that is the purpose of MINDDRIVE. MINDDRIVE made a presentation at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center on June 20. The project is an afterschool program to teach at-risk high school teens the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business. They started their journey on June 11 in San Diego and drive an average of 250 miles per day. They arrived in Jacksonville on June 21. The of cial name of their tour is Project Lotus. These kids took a 1984 Lotus Esprit and totally converted into an electric vehicle, said Richard Stephen Rees, DeLaSalle Automotive Studio instructor and mentor. Her body has been modi ed to make her more lightweight and aerodynamic and is powered by 30 Lithium Ion batteries totaling 96 volts and has a chain-drive motor. According to Rees, in spite of what people may think about electric cars, this car can travel at conservative highway speed, and their hope is it will achieve maximum energy conservation ef ciency. So far were averaging over 400 miles to the gallon, if we were to compare gasoline to electricity usage per mile, Rees said. If we could have electric re lling stations similar to a Sonic drive-in set up across the country, imagine the positive impact electric cars could make not only on the environment, but on the fuel economy too. Our goal is to give the students the tools to process creative thinking, see the potential for realizing dreams in a successful and practical future and instill a greater desire to learn by connecting the process to real life skills, Rees said. The program is unique in that it pairs an experienced automotive mentor with each student. Rees said at the core of the program are highly applicable education concepts such as science, technology, engineering, mathematics, reading and history. MINDDRIVE will continue the principle objectives that primarily taught the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business, Rees said. I attribute much of the programs success to the astounding principles provided by our programs mentors. He said the main focus of MINDDRIVE is about the educational experience that can be provided for the students. The teaching process is unique, pairing one student to one adult mentor, not always one on one, but in a way that allows the students a direct connection to individual adults, Rees said. The highly capable, well educated adults who work carefully to create windows that the students can work within to make decisions themselves in designing and fabricating the project vehicles. The work has been focused to two primary directives: the design of the ultra light body and the electrical propulsion system. This project also connects the students with the real world by working on important environmental issues and the future increased demand for an alternative fuel source, Rees explained. They are learning to understand and breakdown the creative process and learn how to communicate as a team to make progress in an ef cient way to meet schedules, Rees said. In the end, the work will be evaluated to see how it met its challenge and how scienti cally it performs. Rees said that all of the mentors in their program have experience as youth educators, whether through schools or through activities like coaching sports and Boy Scouts. They all understand the project is that of the students and that they are but enablers, Rees said. Their project before Project Lotus was Project Lola, which was the design and fabrication of a working automobile. The design is based on using a rolling platform of a 2000 Lola Indy Car, and the platform has a working suspension, working brakes, steering and structural tub, Rees said. The tub is a proven ultra strong passenger envelope of the racing car. Rees said the project required minimum modications to the platform with primary work related to the design of an electric propulsion system and a lightweight exterior skin turning the open wheeled racecar into a full-bodied car. The car was designed to travel at 60 miles per hour at a maximum and be able to operate for an hour between charges, Rees said. Its a single seat urban alternative energy vehicle and because of its minimal weight of 1,300 pounds it shows how simplicity and lighter weight can influence performance and energy conservation.

WHAT IS MINDDRIVE A non-pro t organization whose mission statement is to inspire at-risk teens to want to learn by expanding their vision for the future, and to transform and sustain the urban work force. The expanded mission includes working in urban communities with teens on green technology and innovation through critical thinking and experiential learning. Projects include building unique electric cars, teaching ef ciency dynamics and innovative aerodynamics, integrating with school curriculum in math, science and history, counseling students on career paths, and securing positions for them in like-minded industries within their urban community. As a not-for-pro t organization, MINDDRIVE aims to create partnerships with corporations that have similar goals, values and community outreach connections. An important aspect of the class is the proprietary student/mentoring program. MINDDRIVE uses a one-on-one mentor to student ratio. Mentors work with the students in educational and socio-economic ways, creating a bonding relationship that is critical to both the learning process and the enhancement of the students vision for their future. Steve Rees founded the organization after teaching a class at DeLaSalle Education Center, a charter school in Kansas City for three years. Linda Buchner and Tom Strongman are partners.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Evacuating when a hurricane hits the coast is a stressful and scary experience, especially when evacuating with horses. Though tornadoes give little warning for evacuation, hurricanes can give enough lead time to actually move people and horses out of the storms expected path. But even with that time, preparation can be crucial to the survival of horses. Dr. William Moyer, professor and special assistant to the dean at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, offers a series of suggestions for evacuating with horses. Take the threat seriously, Moyer said. You need to make the decision to leave as soon as you can. If you wait until the last minute, youre placing yourself and your horse in harms way. Over 100,000 animals were lost during Hurricane Ike. He suggested owners make sure their trailers are road-worthy before hurricane season begins or identify someone with reliable trucks and trailers who can transport horses for them. Another important aspect of evacuating horses is ensuring your horses are comfortable with loading. Working with your horses ahead of time is particularly important if a neighbor or friend will be transporting your horse because ill-behaved horses can waste valuable evacuation time or refusal of transport. Evacuation trafc is often slow and crowded, creating a dangerous situation for trailered horses. You are often forced to move quite slowly, Moyer said. Filling up on gas or diesel before entering trafc is imperative and can keep you out of situations where your animal might overheat or become dehydrated should you run out of fuel. Moyer advised identifying evacuation destinations. While moving inland during a hurricane is important, nding a specic place to go is best. During hurricane Ike, we sheltered 166 horses through a cooperative agreement with a local livestock arena operation. The degree of planning for resources, personnel and scheduling regular care can be daunting. He suggested creating an evacuation kit with a brief and well documented health history, a list of behavior peculiarities (if applicable), a rst aid kit, cash, appropriate health documentation, enough food and adequate, safe water supplies for about four days, and any necessary medicine for chronic or pre-existing illnesses. Owners also need to ensure the appropriate health documentation accompanies the horse. An up-to-date Coggins test is necessary, particularly if crossing state lines. Moyer suggested making sure you have these papers organized before hurricane season. In addition to required documentation, vaccinations also are suggested. Because evacuating can be a stressful time, vaccinations can help decrease the likelihood of several diseases, Moyer said. Mosquitoes can be a huge problem during hurricane season, and moving them around coastal areas can expose them to new areas of infestation and diseases. Also, prepare current paper and electronic copies of pictures of your horse for reclaiming purposes, particularly if the horse isnt tattooed or branded. Ideally, these would include a picture of the owner and the horse together to ensure ownership, Moyer said. If you cannot evacuate your horse or are forced to leave part of your herd behind, some precautions can help you reunite with your horse. Keeping photographs can help, but also attaching identication information to the horses body can be useful. Braiding information wrapped in plastic to horses manes and tails can help. Livestock paint works well to put identication information on the body, and its waterproof. Or even taking a pair of clippers and shaving your contact information into the animals hair can help you reunite with your horse when you return. In addition to preparing your horse for evacuation, Moyer also suggested preparing yourself. Have a personal evacuation plan, too. You have to take care of yourself rst to be able to take care of your horse. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Unless I win the lottery, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States then to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks, and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy. After all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money, but then I thought about whats involved, and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers, all they can talk about is money, speci cally, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years, and I know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher, I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping, and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this, and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political of ce. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea. For all the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow. Rev. James L.

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.

TDC awards event grantsBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Tourist Development Council approved a handful of grants Monday for upcoming events, including a grant for the Flea Across Florida Yard Sale event planned Sept. 15. The Merchants of Historic Downtown Chipley, represented by Barbara James and Kathy Foster, submitted a request to the TDC for a $1,000 grant for advertising Chipley Flea Market Days, to be held in conjunction with Flea Across Florida. This is a new event and has never been funded by the TDC before, Council Member Ted Everett said. Flea Across Florida is a threeday event in September that will offer yard sales and ea market stalls along Highway 90 from Live Oak in Suwannee County to Pensacola, James said. James went to the City Council to get permission to hold the event earlier this month, and the plan is to offer 10-foot ea market spaces for $10 each to vendors along Railroad Avenue in downtown Chipley. We hope the banks will open up their parking lots to employees, or to the public, so they can set up booths. There also will be booths set up around the Historical Society Museum as well, James said. There will be people who make the entire drive from Live Oak to Pensacola, Foster said. Foster said Debbie Goulding and she were asked to provide marketing for the event aiming toward southern Alabama, Georgia and the coastal areas to advertise the event. There was much discussion about how to track attendance to the event, which ended with Foster and James saying they felt like it would be possible to get some numbers on attendees at the event. The TDC also approved a $1,000 grant for the Seacrest Wolf Preserves Howl-O-Ween event. The Oct. 19-21 event will feature several events including a Dog-A-Ween contest, a haunted hayride, and arts and crafts for children. See TDC A2Lawsuit: City must turn over session transcriptsBy ALI HELGOTH522-5118 | @AHelgoth ahelgoth@pcnh.com CHIPLEY The Washington County News won a legal victory Tuesday when Vernon was given 10 days to turn over a transcript of an April executive session. Circuit Court Judge Chris Patterson ruled the city violated the states Sunshine Laws during the executive session held on April 23 to update new city council members and the mayor on pending litigation. The bottom line is the whole purpose of governing in the sunshine is so the public knows what is happening with their governing of cials, Patterson said. Although elected of cials are allowed to go into executive session for the reason cited by the citys attorney Kerry Adkison, the law outlines strict regulations for how the session must begin, and it requires the governing body to reconvene in public and formally end the executive session. Randal Seyler, managing editor of the Washington County News, testi ed he doesnt know whether the meeting ever actually ended. Patterson said he was moved by that statement, and asked rhetorically if the meeting was ongoing. The Sunshine Laws also require a transcript of the meeting be led within a reasonable amount of time. The transcript becomes public after the pending litigation ends. The city has not led a transcript. WATERMELON FESTIVAL DRAWS THOUSANDSAuthor tells of struggles, triumphs with MSBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY In 1992, Tallahassee attorney and Bonifay native Bruce Pelham received frightening news he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. With the onset of the disease, walking 150 feet was a struggle and required Pelham to rest before moving on. Speech was dif cult, and MS also caused daily fatigue, sensitivity to heat, shortterm memory loss and an interruption of the thinking process. As a result of the disease, Pelham appeared to be drunk while walking, even being stopped once by a policeman in a mall. Now, 20 years later, Pelham is mostly symptomfree, and he attributes his healing to exercise and prayer. To get the message out about his struggle with MS, Pelham has written a book Im Not Drunk I Just Have MS. The book is available on the authors website and also at Kings Discount Drugs in Chipley. Pelham was born in Geneva, Ala., and raised in Bonifay. He graduated from Holmes County High School in 1963, then went to Tallahassee to Florida State University. After working as an accountant, he returned to FSU to attend law school and had a successful career in real estate and law. Early on after I was diagnosed, I called a woman in Cleveland, Ohio, I had RANDAL SEYLER | Times-AdvertiserVolunteers hand out watermelon slices on Friday at Pals Park during the 56th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival parade Saturday in Chipley.

Hours will begin at 1 p.m. Oct. 19, with campers arriving. Oct. 20 events will begin at 9:30 a.m. and continue until about 10 p.m. The event will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Oct. 21. Owner Wayne Watkins told the council members the event was expanded to three days because of the popularity of last years Howl-O-Ween. The Washington Historical Preservation Societys grant request for $1,000 for Fall Into History also was approved. Fall Into History is an event designed to share Washington County history through demonstrations, storytellers and song. It will be held at the Farmers Market Complex and also will feature vendors. The event will be from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. One highlight of the historical societys event is the scarecrow contest, society president Dorothy Odom said. Weve already had people getting excited about their entries for this year, Odom said. You dont know how many people have told me theyve run into people who were traveling through the town and they remember the scarecrows. The nal grant was for $1,500 for the Washington County Chamber of Commerces Gun and Knife Show to be held Oct. 13-14 at the Agricultural Center. Everett, who abstained from voting on the grant, told the TDC members the gun show would replace the outdoor festival, which the chamber used to hold. It got so the requirements for the outdoor festival and the animals, the hay the water and the volunteers, that it was just harder and harder for the chamber to do, Everett said. The gun and knife show portion of the outdoor festival was popular, however. Tables for vendors at the show will be $60 with a limit of 10 tables per vendor, Everett said. The tables will be on a rst come, rst serve basis. In other business, the TDC voted unanimously to vacate the seat on the TDC held by City Council Member Roger Sloan due to absenteeism. Sloans seat on the council is a statutory seat, which means the TDC is required to have a seat for an elected ofcial from the largest municipality in the county, which would be Chipley. Secretary Jim Town told Chairman Joel Pate that he would prepare a letter for the Chipley City Council notifying them of the vacancy and requesting a replacement for Sloan.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 27, 2012Patterson said he had to strictly interpret the states open meeting law, and based on evidence presented the city did not follow those regulations. We appreciate Judge Pattersons recognition of the importance of public record laws that are intended to generate condence in workings of government and in the application in this case of the city of Vernon and not complying with those laws, said Washington County News Publisher Nicole Bareeld. Access to public records and governing in the sunshine are the foundation for trust and accountability for actions taken by our elected ofcials. Adkison argued because the city council did not take any ofcial action, the executive session did not constitute a meeting and was not subject to the Sunshine Laws. He also suggested the discussion should be covered by attorney-client privilege. Patterson disagreed the meeting was exempt from the law, but he is giving Adkison the opportunity to argue the transcripts of the meeting contain privileged information. He ordered the transcripts be turned over to attorneys for Washington County News and its parent company, Freedom Communications, within 10 days. He is giving an additional 10 days for Adkison to argue why the information should not immediately be made public. Adkison said after the hearing he is going to comply with the judges order to turn over the transcript, but no decision has been made about whether he will argue against making the document public. The lawsuit was led in late May after weeks of failed attempts to get the city to respond to or discuss a public records request with The News or its attorney. read about who had MS. She was a vice president of a university, and when I got her on the phone she said she had just spent four hours shoveling snow, Pelham said. When asked how she was able to shovel snow when she had been severely limited by MS, she replied, I prayed each day, saying that when God was ready, he would take this from me. Pelham adopted her prayer, but added his own line: In the meantime, let me know what I need to do to facilitate the process. Another key to his recovery was exercise, Pelham said. When I was rst diagnosed, my general practitioner told me to walk three or four times a week for at least 30 minutes, Pelham followed his doctors advice, although it wasnt always easy. When I started I could barely walk 150 feet. After 18 months, I walked a mile without resting. In the intervening years, P elham says he has walked about 8,000 miles, walking as much as 16 miles in a stretch. He still walks 3 miles every day. MS is a disease that is difcult to diagnose. There are many symptoms and often no two cases are alike, Pelham said. He developed small scars over his brain, which appeared in MRI scans. The scars interfered with the way the brain was able to communicate with the body. But by 2002, the scars had disappeared from the MRI scans. The doctors had no experience like it, nor did the specialists they talked to in Europe, Pelham said. One thing Pelham did not do was take the MS medications his doctor prescribed. I explain why in the book, but the medications have many serious side effects. I decided to write the book to encourage people not to give up, Pelham said. Three years ago, he had been accepted to the University of Floridas Master of Law and Taxation program, but he decided to write his book instead of pursuing the advanced degree. Exercise is so crucial to health, but so is prayer and attitude, Pelham said. My book is not a recipe for a cure, but it is the story of my struggle with MS, an explanation of how it was for me. Now although Pelham apparently is healthy, he still suffers some symptoms when walking in extreme heat, and his doctors continue to monitor his health. Still he said he said he believes he has come a long way since his diagnosis in 1992. Prayer played a huge part in my recovery; my belief in God made a huge difference in my life, he said.

Does my home have to be free and clear? No. Many people get a Reverse Mortgage to pay off their current mortgage or equity thereby eliminating those monthly payments. Q3. How much money can I receive? Three factors are taken into consideration: Date of birth of the youngest person on the title, your zip code and the value of your home. Q4. Is the money I receive taxable? No. The IRS treats these funds as borrowed money. This is a loan, not income. Q5. What happens to my home when I pass away? The loan is repaid to the lender through the sale or refinancing of your home by your heirs. Any proceeds in excess of the amount owed to the lender belong to your heirs. You only pay for the funds you used plus interest. Q6. What if I dont use all the money? You and yours heirs are required to pay back ONLY the outstanding balance that is due. Any money remaining after the mortgage is paid, regardless of the home value, goes to your heirs. Q7. Can I be forced to sell or vacate my home if the loan amount exceeds the value of my home? No. The FHA mortgage insurance guarantees they pay the difference to the lender. You cannot be forced to sell your home if the loan exceeds its value.

Due to nancial reasons, the Poplar Springs Beta Club was unable to secure a charter bus to this years National Junior Beta Convention, so the parents volunteered to provide transportation and requested that the HCSD approve the travel changes. Board member Gary Scott inquired about using personal vehicles for school-sanctioned trips. After much discussion they found that personal vehicles were allowed and covered under the school boards insurance as long as each vehicle meets the schools requirements as a safe and insured vehicle and all the proper documentation has been led before the trip. The board approved of the new travel arrangements pending that all the required measures have been met to do so. Discussion continued on to sports travel as well as after school activities. We want to be consistent in all our policies, Superintendent Gary Galloway said. This was an excellent opportunity for us to evaluate our policies from a practical stand-point, and now I feel we should arrange to hold evaluations with all the schools to see how our policies are being enforced. The board also approved the hiring of two technology assistants, Lee Gilley and Shane Schiller, to work from July 9 to Aug. 9, to be paid by the RTT Grant; the hire Mary Dady for ESE Summer School; the transfer Odell Paul from GAP to Bonifay Middle School; the transfer Stephanie Williams from Bonifay Elementary School to BMS; maternity leave for Anna Taylor, a teacher at Poplar Springs, beginning Aug. 10 and ending June 10, 2013; resignations from Aileen Mork, teacher at BES, effective July 31, Cheryl West, teacher at Bethlehem High School, effective June 29, Maranda Dady, teacher at BES, effective June 12, and Wendy Worley, teacher at BES, effective June 19.

I wasnt crazy about the humidity Friday night, but in spite of the weather I thought the 56th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival was a great event. I was impressed by the musical performances on Friday night, and also impressed by the large number of people who braved the weather to come enjoy the festivities. Between tropical storm Debby and the typical summer humidity, everyone looked fairly soggy after an hour or so at Pals Park Friday. And soggy though they might have been, most festival goers also looked happy. Watermelon rolling looked to be dif cult especially for the kids whose watermelons probably weighed a signi cant portion of their body weight but that didnt stop youngsters from trying to boot their fruit over the nish line. The seed spitting was not as hard, but apparently it takes some skill to launch watermelon seeds any distance. Or maybe it just takes a lot of hot air. At the annual Ding Dong Days festival in Dumas, Ark., I remember the watermelon seed spitting competition being reserved for politicians, who are usually full of wind. Saturdays parade was probably the longest festival parade I have ever personally witnessed outside of Mardi Gras, and doubtless it was the numerous political candidates that added to the length of the parade. I was surprised there werent more classic cars or antique tractors, but maybe due to the election year the machinery took a back seat. Saturday the wind kicked up and the rain started about 1 p.m., but before the weather headed south there were lots of people at the Washington County Agricultural Center enjoying the booths and the activities, including the Big Watermelon Auction, which was being held before a full house when I stopped in on Saturday. All in all, the festival seemed to move along without a hitch, which is a great testament to the men and women who volunteer behind the scenes. Something as wonderful as the Watermelon Festival doesnt just happen. It takes dozens of volunteers working for months in advance to make an event like the festival happen. And for it to happen so smoothly, well, that takes an expert hand and lots of hard work. Washington County Judge Colby Peel, chairman of the festival, and his volunteers deserve a big thank you and a round of applause for their efforts, so the next time you see one these volunteers be sure to thank them for their efforts. Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out and supported us in our fundraiser ( sh fry and grilled chicken plates) this past Saturday, June 23. We had a very successful event thanks to the support received from our community. If I tried to thank everyone individually I would surely miss someone, but the key people I would like to say thank you to for the donations received are the local businesses in Bonifay and the New Hope Fire Department for loaning the decorations. Also, thank you to the ladies and men in the community who gave of their time to supply the side items as well as the desserts and to all the volunteers who gave of their time to cook the sh, chicken. Again thank you! Sincerely,Alfred SellersAssistant Chief Pittman VFD Bonifay The Prattler has previously explained his feeling of responsibility for reporting on the passing of noted country, folk and bluegrass artist with long, enviable histories of entertaining millions of fans in the past. It is my sad duty to report the death of highly in uential guitarist, singer and songwriter Doc Watson passed away on May 29 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., following colon surgery. He was 89. Your writer has known Doc Watson by reputation only for many years. It was my privilege to play, as well as enjoy, his music and songs for the 22-year broadcast, Bluegrass Express, on WBGC-A.M. in Chipley. I rst saw him and enjoyed his live performance at the bluegrass festival staged by Mike Lipford of Marianna. This event was held in the beautiful wooded rolling hills in Jackson County just south of Marianna during the 1980s. I last heard Doc in concert when Hester and I attended an inside bluegrass festival in Eureka Springs, Ark., in 2002. The death of his son, Merle, had happened in the interim. The loss of his son, Merle, is one of the saddest incidents occurring in the artists life. Watson and his son began touring together in the late 1960s, with Merle playing guitar and banjo in addition to serving as driver for his blind guitarist father. During this time the pair began to reach a worldwide audience, helped by collaborations with Flatt and Scruggs, Chet Atkins and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Merle passed away in 1985 after an accident on the family farm. It is reported that he suffered a serious injury while in his carpentry workshop when a band saw cut deeply into his hand. He was attempting to drive to a nearby hospital using a farm tractor when the second accident happened with the farm machine. The legacy of Merle Watson lives on with the annual mammoth MerleFest music festival carried on each year on the campus of North Wilkesboro College in Wilkesboro, N.C. Vernon native Jack Roche, a career professor at this institution of higher learning, has invited the Prattler to attend the highly publicized event, but it was never my privilege to do so. Another plan that I wanted to carry through was to visit Doc Watson at his home in Boone, N.C., knock on his door and invite him to have a hamburger with me at the noted Boone Tavern, located there. Regretfully, this dream of mine never materialized. Our musical friend, which I must admit I never personally acquainted, was born Arthel Lane Watson in Deep Gap, N.C. He was bestowed with the name Doc during a live broadcast when the announcer said he should have an easy nickname when an audience LETTER TO THE EDITOR PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Watermelon Festival soggy but funSPECIAL TO THE NEWSDoc Watson and son, Merle, from an album, Down South recorded in 1984.

Sherry Snell, administrative assistant/insurance and safety coordinator, accepted the award at a recent conference that she attended on behalf of the County. The award is for the preferred member who has shown an overall decrease in frequency and severity of claims for all lines of insurance coverage for the last three years. Members must utilize all PRM Loss Prevention Services and participate in Drug Free Workplace and Workplace Safety Credit Programs to be eligible. Holmes County won the award competing with 47 other counties and cities. This is the second year in a row that Holmes County has received a safety award. Last year they received the Most Improved Safety Performance award. The safety committee members are Sherry Snell (safety committee secretary), Willie Sewell, Albert Jordan, Eddie Whitehurst (safety committee chairman), Jeff Whitehurst (safety committee vice chairman) Greg Barton and Gerald Truett. Special thanks to the Holmes County Board of Commissioners who have supported the monthly training programs that the committee maintains that resulted in this great honor. SPECIAL TO THE NEWSThe safety committee members include Sherry Snell (safety committee secretary), Willie Sewell, Albert Jordan, Eddie Whitehurst (safety committee chairman), Jeff Whitehurst (safety committee vice chairman) and Greg Barton. Not pictured is Gerald Truett.Holmes County receives second safety awardmember shouted out Call him Doc! The name stuck with him the rest of his life. Watson was blind since before he was two years old. He attended North Carolinas school for the visually impaired in Raleigh. When he was 13, he taught himself how to play When the Roses Bloom in Dixie on a borrowed guitar, and his father bought him a $12 Stella as a reward. In 1947, Doc Watson married Rosa Lee Carlton, daughter of ddler Gaither Carlton, and they had two children, Eddy Merle and Nancy Ellen. Watsons rst playing gigs were with a local rockabilly/swing band, but he became a full-time professional with the folk/traditional music revival of the 1960s. His self-styled solo debut appeared in 1964, and he was represented until his passing by Folklore Productions. Over the course of his career, Doc Watson recorded more than 50 albums and won Grammy Awards including a Lifetime Achievement Grammy. He was also a recipient of the National Medal of Arts and a National Heritage Fellowship. In 2011, a life-size statue of Watson was unveiled in Boone, N.C., on the spot where he formerly played for tips. At his request, the statues inscription reads Just One of the People. Doc Watson was known to add a personal note to a song just prior to singing it. He did this at concerts and on recordings. On one album in my collection he announces that he would do a gospel song, then explained: A gospel song is one that attributes honor and praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He then sang I Want To Love Him More. Another ballad-type song, The Orphan Girl was introduced with an explanation that traced it back to being sung by his great-grandmother Watson. These same handwritten lyrics are in Hesters possession, handed down from her great-grandmother, Martha Carolyn White Lee. Hester had previously thought that maybe her ancestor wrote the song, but Doc Watson dashed those hopes. The unique and innovative style of guitar picking in uenced scores of guitarist who followed, and his repertoire of American Music was vast. President Bill Clinton said, in awarding Watson the National Medal of Arts, There may not be a serious, committed baby boomer alive who didnt at some point in his or her youth try to spend a few minutes at least trying to learn to pick a guitar like Doc Watson. The legendary Doc Watson is survived by his wife Rosa Lee; daughter Nancy Ellen; grandchildren Richard Watson and Karen Watson Norris; a brother, David Watson; and several great-grandchildren. A Private Funeral was planned for this icon of traditional music. See you all next week. PRATTLE from page A4 Safety committee scores safety awards for two consecutive years

This week I reach the big 6-5. When I was in my teens I thought anyone over 30 was old, and anyone in their 60s was discovered in an Egyptian tomb. How times have changed. Now anyone in their 80s is considered old or should I say lucky. I was trying to figure out just what the advantages of reaching 65 were aside from getting coffee at McDonalds for 60 cents a cup. Well, there are all sorts of bargains if you are willing to weed them out. One is that you dont need a saltwater fishing license once you turn 65. Mine was about to expire and I thought I had better get one before snapper season. Then I found out I didnt need a license after I reached 65. It just so happened my license expired a month before my birthday and snapper season opened June 1. I figured it was a shame to shell out the money to fish a year and to have it in force for only a month. I asked at the tag office if there was any kind of exemption in such cases, and sure enough there is one as long as you only fish freshwater. Anyway, other advantages of reaching 65 include never having to buy a hunting license again, or get a $25 quota permit to hunt wildlife management areas. Ill never have to purchase another freshwater fishing license. Ill never have to buy another turkey stamp or a black powder permit or another bow permit. As a matter of fact, the only permit I would have to buy is a federal duck stamp and I dont intend to ever hunt another duck. So, there are advantages to reaching 65. My friend added that on top of those I also can draw Social Security. I had to think about that one for a minute. No, I dont think so. Thats no great prize. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netJackson and other perched lakes functioning normally By STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Its something thats happened countless times over the ages, but Lake Jackson is almost dry. About 18 months ago, the 4,000-acre lake north of Tallahassee began falling and little water now remains, except in isolated pools. Jackson last went dry in 2006, before that in 2002 and 1999. The culprit, if you want to call it that, is simple: lack of rainfall, according to Michael Hill, a sheries biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Tallahassee area was about 6 inches below normal rainfall in 2010, about 20 inches in 2011 and this year were already down 5-6 inches, Hill said. Just more than a week ago, he said there were about 10 acres of water in the middle part of the lake, which connects to Porter Sink and directly to the Floridan Aquifer. By Tuesday, almost all the water in the middle area of the lake went down Porter Sink. Hill said Lakes Jackson, Iamonia and Miccosukee are all perched lakes, which means the lake basins are above a thin limestone layer and the Floridan Aquifer. He said the sinks, including Porter Sink and lesser-known Lime Sink on Lake Jackson, are areas where the limestone far below the lake bed has simply dissolved or given away. When theres lots of rain and the water table is high, the sinks are still there in all of these perched lakes and functioning as a conduit to the Florida aquifer, Hill said. In 1938, he said those wanting to stabilize the lake level in Iamonia placed a dam around the primary sink. In the 1950s the same thing was done on Lake Miccosukee in Jefferson County. Since then, the gates to the Iamonia dam have been permanently removed. On Miccosukee, they have been temporarily removed to allow the lake bottom to dry out. What people didnt understand is when you stabilize the water levels, enormous amounts of organic matter settle on the bottom and this muck affects sh reproduction and depresses the amount of oxygen in the water, which game sh need, he said. Natural lake uctuations keep the lake bottoms free of excess muck and function another important way. When the lake bed is exposed for any time you get a lot of plants that germinate and grow. When lakes re ll, that covered vegetation fuels an incredible growth in microscopic plants and animals, which sh utilize, Hill said. Thats the reason you have such spectacular shing on these re lled lakes. Although people want to improve on Mother Nature, Hill said its best to wait for more normal rainfall patterns. By JESSICA BASHAM THERRIAULTSpecial to The News Herald Not everyone has a green backyard with bushes and trees. Florida is a peninsula, with the longest coastline of all states in the continental United States. Most of Floridas almost 19 million residents live less than 60 miles from the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, making the beach, sand and salt water their backyards. So lets go on a summer backyard beach safari. Begin your treasure hunt by shelling. Take a walk along the waters edge, and you will discover hundreds of varieties of shells hurled onto the beach by waves that roll or crash onto the shore. Seashells once were living organisms. The shell is the hard, protective outer part of an animal, usually a mollusk. Mollusks are animals such as scallops, snails, clams and oysters. These creatures make their own shell. When the animal dies or gets eaten by another creature, the empty shell stays empty or becomes a home to other sea critters like hermit crabs. Shelling provides hours of fun while looking for that one-of-a-kind, colorful treasure. Before you keep a shell, make sure there is nothing living in it. Otherwise you need a special license to keep it. Another activity is digging in the sand for coquinas (Ko-KEE-nahs) and mole crabs. Its easy to spend hours getting lost in the color and movement of coquinas and the squirms of mole crabs. Coquinas are tiny clams that live just below the surface of the sand where the waves roll in. Tides carry and deposit them along the shoreline, where they feed on microscopic organisms in the sand. They are a dazzling sight with wonderful colors, like tiny jewels. Sometimes you dont need to dig because incoming waves will unearth them. Watch as they furiously dig, seeking cover and food as each wave rolls back out to sea. Mole crabs are small and do not look like a typical crab, nor do they look like a mole. They are fast and will bury themselves quickly in an effort to hide. To nd one, dig gently in sand near the water, just as if you are looking for coquinas. As you dig, they might bury deeper into the sand but if you can get underneath one, then you can scoop it up. They might tickle you, but dont worry; they do not bite. Be gentle, because they are soft and fragile. When you are nished observing the crab gently place it back into the soft, wet sand. Bird-watching is another fun activity. Gulls live on the beach and are known to swoop in to steal your food. Pesky as they might be, they are still fun to watch. Other birds to watch at the beach are pelicans. Pelicans glide just above the waters surface, and then SPLOOSH! They dive into the water headrst to grab a shy meal. Its also fun to look for bird tracks in the wet sand. Can you identify the tracks you nd? Do not chase the birds to make them y. Simply watch and admire their behavior. While on your safari, be sure to wear sunscreen so you can avoid sunburn, and have fun this summer.

LocalWashington County News | A7Wednesday, June 27, 2012By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Community Canning Center might be down, but dont count it out. Annette Lanham, a master food volunteer who works with the county extension of ce to teach pressure canning and food preservation classes in Washington and Holmes counties, is working to reopen the center under the auspices of the extension of ce. Lanham addressed the Washington County Board of County Commissioners on Thursday and presented her plans for the canning center. It is too late to do anything this year, but I hope we can have the center open for 2013, Lanham told the commissioners. In each of the ve classes weve taught this year, students have asked about the status of the canning center, expressing an interest in utilizing the facility, she said. Its my desire to see the canning center reopened, and I have been researching what it would take to make that happen. Lanham said the center last was open for an entire season in 2009, under the direction of the Tri-County Community Council. In 2010 the center was open on a limited basis, and in 2011 it was by appointment only. The centers boiler is no longer functioning, and the expense to repair it is estimated at being more than $30,000. An estimate from the naval facility in Panama City, where the center had hoped to nd an economical replacement boiler, turned out to be about $17,000, Lanham said. I have researched options for removing the boiler altogether, replacing the steam canners with conventional stove-top canners and operating the canning center on propane, Lanham said. Removal of the boiler will alleviate the requirement to have a trained boiler operator on-site. Retro tting costs would be considerably less than the $37,000 boiler replacement estimate. Lanham asked the commissioners to consider funding the center with a $5,000 budget line-item next year. The BOCC used to send money to Tri-County earmarked for the canning center, she said, and the money could be used to reopen the center. I plan on going to the city councils in Chipley, Wausau, Vernon and Ebro and asking them for funding, too, she said. The city of Vernon owns the canning center building, but the building currently has no liability insurance coverage. The city is looking into adding the facility to its municipal coverage, Lanham said. Tri-County has also taken equipment from the center, but they have agreed to return most of it if the center can be reopened, Lanham said, including a peasheller and a potato-peeler. Ive been looking for a pea-sheller, Sheriff Bobby Haddock said. Id like to see if we couldnt work something out that would be bene cial to both the center and the county. There you have it, Chairman Hulan Carter joked.

The win at Sonoma gave him two rsts. It was his rst career win during a road race, and it was his rst win of the 2012 season. Bowyer lead 70 of the 112 laps, holding off Kurt Busch for most of the race. Bowyer and Busch held this placing until the last lap under a green/ white checkered, when Tony Stewart took the second place slot from Busch. This was the second straight week Stewart won second. Jeff Gordons luck was just the same as it has been for the last several weeks bad. This week it wasnt due to engine problems or anything major, he simply ran out of gas. Gordon managed to get a sixth-place nish. Maybe his luck will change in Kentucky. For the second week in a row, Marcos Ambrose was the pole sitter at the start, and he nished eighth. With only two caution ags, the race wasnt what some NASCAR fans wanted to see. On lap 42, Josh Wise spun out but was able to save it without bringing out a caution. As lap 48 came and went, it marked the longest race time without a caution. The rst caution didnt come until lap 82 when Tomy Drissi crashed. The second and nal caution came as Kyle Busch, Juan Montoya and Paul Menard spun out on the track. There were three rounds of green ag pit stops the rst was on laps 34-37, then again on laps 49-52, the last round of green ag pit stops were on laps 69-76.

LocalA8 | Washington County News Wednesday, June 27, 2012CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCNHCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Driving from coast to coast in an electric car built by the hands of at-risk high school teens sounds like a risky proposition, but that is the purpose of MINDDRIVE. MINDDRIVE made a presentation at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center on June 20. The project is an afterschool program to teach at-risk high school teens the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business. They started their journey on June 11 in San Diego and drive an average of 250 miles per day. They arrived in Jacksonville on June 21. The of cial name of their tour is Project Lotus. These kids took a 1984 Lotus Esprit and totally converted into an electric vehicle, said Richard Stephen Rees, DeLaSalle Automotive Studio instructor and mentor. Her body has been modi ed to make her more lightweight and aerodynamic and is powered by 30 Lithium Ion batteries totaling 96 volts and has a chain-drive motor. According to Rees, in spite of what people may think about electric cars, this car can travel at conservative highway speed, and their hope is it will achieve maximum energy conservation ef ciency. So far were averaging over 400 miles to the gallon, if we were to compare gasoline to electricity usage per mile, Rees said. If we could have electric re lling stations similar to a Sonic drive-in set up across the country, imagine the positive impact electric cars could make not only on the environment, but on the fuel economy too. Our goal is to give the students the tools to process creative thinking, see the potential for realizing dreams in a successful and practical future and instill a greater desire to learn by connecting the process to real life skills, Rees said. The program is unique in that it pairs an experienced automotive mentor with each student. Rees said at the core of the program are highly applicable education concepts such as science, technology, engineering, mathematics, reading and history. MINDDRIVE will continue the principle objectives that primarily taught the process of applying creative thinking to design projects and connecting to the real world of business, Rees said. I attribute much of the programs success to the astounding principles provided by our programs mentors. He said the main focus of MINDDRIVE is about the educational experience that can be provided for the students. The teaching process is unique, pairing one student to one adult mentor, not always one on one, but in a way that allows the students a direct connection to individual adults, Rees said. The highly capable, well educated adults who work carefully to create windows that the students can work within to make decisions themselves in designing and fabricating the project vehicles. The work has been focused to two primary directives: the design of the ultra light body and the electrical propulsion system. This project also connects the students with the real world by working on important environmental issues and the future increased demand for an alternative fuel source, Rees explained. They are learning to understand and breakdown the creative process and learn how to communicate as a team to make progress in an ef cient way to meet schedules, Rees said. In the end, the work will be evaluated to see how it met its challenge and how scienti cally it performs. Rees said that all of the mentors in their program have experience as youth educators, whether through schools or through activities like coaching sports and Boy Scouts. They all understand the project is that of the students and that they are but enablers, Rees said. Their project before Project Lotus was Project Lola, which was the design and fabrication of a working automobile. The design is based on using a rolling platform of a 2000 Lola Indy Car, and the platform has a working suspension, working brakes, steering and structural tub, Rees said. The tub is a proven ultra strong passenger envelope of the racing car. Rees said the project required minimum modications to the platform with primary work related to the design of an electric propulsion system and a lightweight exterior skin turning the open wheeled racecar into a full-bodied car. The car was designed to travel at 60 miles per hour at a maximum and be able to operate for an hour between charges, Rees said. Its a single seat urban alternative energy vehicle and because of its minimal weight of 1,300 pounds it shows how simplicity and lighter weight can influence performance and energy conservation.

WHAT IS MINDDRIVE A non-pro t organization whose mission statement is to inspire at-risk teens to want to learn by expanding their vision for the future, and to transform and sustain the urban work force. The expanded mission includes working in urban communities with teens on green technology and innovation through critical thinking and experiential learning. Projects include building unique electric cars, teaching ef ciency dynamics and innovative aerodynamics, integrating with school curriculum in math, science and history, counseling students on career paths, and securing positions for them in like-minded industries within their urban community. As a not-for-pro t organization, MINDDRIVE aims to create partnerships with corporations that have similar goals, values and community outreach connections. An important aspect of the class is the proprietary student/mentoring program. MINDDRIVE uses a one-on-one mentor to student ratio. Mentors work with the students in educational and socio-economic ways, creating a bonding relationship that is critical to both the learning process and the enhancement of the students vision for their future. Steve Rees founded the organization after teaching a class at DeLaSalle Education Center, a charter school in Kansas City for three years. Linda Buchner and Tom Strongman are partners.MINDDRIVE visits WHTC on tour

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3Evacuating when a hurricane hits the coast is a stressful and scary experience, especially when evacuating with horses. Though tornadoes give little warning for evacuation, hurricanes can give enough lead time to actually move people and horses out of the storms expected path. But even with that time, preparation can be crucial to the survival of horses. Dr. William Moyer, professor and special assistant to the dean at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, offers a series of suggestions for evacuating with horses. Take the threat seriously, Moyer said. You need to make the decision to leave as soon as you can. If you wait until the last minute, youre placing yourself and your horse in harms way. Over 100,000 animals were lost during Hurricane Ike. He suggested owners make sure their trailers are road-worthy before hurricane season begins or identify someone with reliable trucks and trailers who can transport horses for them. Another important aspect of evacuating horses is ensuring your horses are comfortable with loading. Working with your horses ahead of time is particularly important if a neighbor or friend will be transporting your horse because ill-behaved horses can waste valuable evacuation time or refusal of transport. Evacuation trafc is often slow and crowded, creating a dangerous situation for trailered horses. You are often forced to move quite slowly, Moyer said. Filling up on gas or diesel before entering trafc is imperative and can keep you out of situations where your animal might overheat or become dehydrated should you run out of fuel. Moyer advised identifying evacuation destinations. While moving inland during a hurricane is important, nding a specic place to go is best. During hurricane Ike, we sheltered 166 horses through a cooperative agreement with a local livestock arena operation. The degree of planning for resources, personnel and scheduling regular care can be daunting. He suggested creating an evacuation kit with a brief and well documented health history, a list of behavior peculiarities (if applicable), a rst aid kit, cash, appropriate health documentation, enough food and adequate, safe water supplies for about four days, and any necessary medicine for chronic or pre-existing illnesses. Owners also need to ensure the appropriate health documentation accompanies the horse. An up-to-date Coggins test is necessary, particularly if crossing state lines. Moyer suggested making sure you have these papers organized before hurricane season. In addition to required documentation, vaccinations also are suggested. Because evacuating can be a stressful time, vaccinations can help decrease the likelihood of several diseases, Moyer said. Mosquitoes can be a huge problem during hurricane season, and moving them around coastal areas can expose them to new areas of infestation and diseases. Also, prepare current paper and electronic copies of pictures of your horse for reclaiming purposes, particularly if the horse isnt tattooed or branded. Ideally, these would include a picture of the owner and the horse together to ensure ownership, Moyer said. If you cannot evacuate your horse or are forced to leave part of your herd behind, some precautions can help you reunite with your horse. Keeping photographs can help, but also attaching identication information to the horses body can be useful. Braiding information wrapped in plastic to horses manes and tails can help. Livestock paint works well to put identication information on the body, and its waterproof. Or even taking a pair of clippers and shaving your contact information into the animals hair can help you reunite with your horse when you return. In addition to preparing your horse for evacuation, Moyer also suggested preparing yourself. Have a personal evacuation plan, too. You have to take care of yourself rst to be able to take care of your horse. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

SnyderI have always thought about what it would be like to be wealthy. Unless I win the lottery, of which I never play, the opportunity for me to become wealthy is absolutely remote. I have a better chance of being elected president of the United States then to become wealthy. I once thought being a bank robber would be the pathway to riches and fame. After some thought, I decided I would not make a very good bank robber. I hate wearing masks. Years ago, I had the opportunity to choose between intelligence and good looks, and as anybody can see who has looked at me, I chose the latter. If I were a bank robber, I would have to hide my most valuable asset. What kind of nonsense would that be? Another avenue to riches and fame, at least in my thinking, was to become one of those preachers on TV. Those old boys on TV must be wealthy. After all, all they talk about is money, money, money. Listening to some of them, you would think you were listening to a religious Donald Trump. A television preacher rakes in quite a bit of money, but then I thought about whats involved, and I have ruled myself out. I cannot week after week talk about nothing but money, money, money. From my perspective, there is more to life than money. When you listen to most of these TV preachers, all they can talk about is money, speci cally, sending them my money. I would feel terrible getting on television and begging people to send me money and then promising God will bless them. I have been a Christian, after all, for over 50 years, and I know that is not what the Bible says. To be a successful television preacher, I would have to stretch the truth and at my age, I am not up for that kind of exercise. My thoughts then turned to politics. If only I could be elected as a senator, governor or even president of the United States, I would be on my way to riches and fame. I hear these politicians on TV and all they do is talk, talk, talk. They talk so much my ears are thumping, and they never get around to saying anything. I do not know any group of people who can talk so much for so long and say so little. I see that they spend money as if it is theirs. Wait a minute! It is not theirs. In fact, a slice of that is my money. I do not want to be a bank robber, nor do I want to be a TV preacher robbing people of money, and especially I do not want to be a politician who spends everybodys money but theirs. I was deeply thinking about this the other night and concluded none of these areas are worth my pursuing. It looks as though I will end my days as poor as I started them. While watching TV there was some politician talking about if he was elected he would create so many jobs for people. I nodded, almost asleep, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with a comment. Occasionally she does something like this, and usually, I am never prepared for it. Such was the case here. You know, she said rather gravely, you should run for some political of ce. Youd make a good politician. Well, this puts a different light on things. Maybe my better half has come up with a better idea. For all the years I have known her, she has never been wrong, much to my chagrin at times. Maybe she is seeing something in me I have overlooked all these years. She actually said, Youd make a good politician. Well the smile on my face hit the walls on both sides of the room we were sitting in. It was then that I did something to ruin the whole aura of the evening. I said something. I have been a husband long enough to realize that when a husband opens his mouth nothing good will ever come out of it. So, I said rather arrogantly, you think I would make a good politician. So far, so good. If I only had stopped here, it would not have been so bad. But no, I had to push the envelope further. Why do you think I would make a good politician? There is one thing you need to understand about my wife. She will always tell the truth no matter whom it hurts, even if it is me. All these politicians are promising they are going to create jobs. Not one of them makes good on their promise. But you, and she paused here a little too dramatically for my liking, have them all beat on this issue. Nobody creates more jobs around this house than you do. If you could take that skill to Washington, D.C., you could put the entire country to work. Jesus said a lot about work. In one place He said, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9:4 KJV). Some people work for riches. Some people work for recognition and honor. Jesus worked for his Father in heaven. An example we should follow. Rev. James L.

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.
