Shes certainly no stranger to the process, having been taken into police custody more than three dozen times while protesting against nuclear arms. However, with this latest protest, she is facing serious legal consequences. Sister Megan, a nun with the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, is a longtime peace activist with a history of protesting against nuclear weapons. But this time, shes outdone herself. On July 28, she and two companions achieved what the New York Times describes as the biggest security breach in the history of the nations atomic complex. They broke into the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tenn., for the purpose of protesting. For this, shes facing possible longterm imprisonment. She was able to sneak past armed guards and motion sensors, completely breaching the security of a nuclear arms facility. After using bolt cutters on multiple fences to gain entrance, she and her co-conspirators left behind some banners bearing messages of peace. On a more grim parting note, they also splashed blood on a wall at the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility as a reminder of the blood that has been shed as a result of warfare. Whether or not you agree with her actions, her protest raises multiple questions not the least of which is if a nun can go strolling past security and enter the interior of a major U.S. nuclear arsenal, whats stopping our nations enemies from doing the same? How safely is this arsenal really being guarded? Government ofcials admitted there were security execution deciencies. It further prompts discussion of protests, nuclear arms, civil disobedience, aging and the role of women in religion, including nuns. The Vatican recently issued harsh criticism against the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, an organization representing roughly 80 percent of the 55,000 American nuns, for being too radical on various issues. The nuns responded with a public statement saying the Vaticans charges are based on unsubstantiated accusations. Sister Megans protest also invites an examination of personal courage. Whether we ultimately deem her actions right or wrong, she took drastic measures to raise awareness about a cause she personally nds important. She is morally outraged by a government that is, according to her, spending more money on nuclear arms than on health care, education and disaster relief. So she performed a radical act guaranteed to bring attention to the situation. Would you risk arrest to stand against something you nd morally wrong? Its one thing to feel outrage over an issue, but quite another to willingly place oneself in danger while standing up for a cause. Not everybody shares such passion for their values. For every individual who actually gets up and ghts for something, there are a thousand grumbling armchair commentators. Its difcult to champion a cause when you wont put down the potato chips, turn off the TV and place yourself in the ring line. Jail is a seriously unpleasant place, particularly when youre over 80. But she knew the risk she was taking. Right or wrong, one thing that cant be said about this person is that shes cowardly. Shes got the nerve to stand up for her beliefs, rather than politely hiding in the background and remaining silent about what she feels is an international violation of ethics. Public opinion has cast her as both a traitor and a hero, but no one can brand her as indifferent. I personally nd that the older I get, the more carefully I choose my battles. I came to the conclusion long ago that not everything is worth ghting for. But then again, I nd that Im willing to ght harder for causes I feel are right. Im willing to tackle fewer issues, but can become passionate about the ones I continue to focus on. Do you have the bravery to stand up for your beliefs, or do you give mere lip service to your values? Im certainly not urging anyone to go out and break into a nuclear facility. Im just saying that there are, perhaps, a few things left in the world worth ghting for. Sister Megan Rice has found her cause.

Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, August 18, 2012 That is the opposite of Tuesday nights Primary Election results, when Cates led Brown by seven votes, 2,664 to 2,657. The recount was held by the Washington County Supervisor of Elections because the margin of the race was less than 1 percent, said County Judge Colby Peel. Because of the narrow margin, the recount was mandated by law. After the recount was conducted and the tally came back in Browns favor, the Canvassing Board convened and checked each voting machine, only to discover the difference in the count seemed to come from the voting machine used for the absentee ballots. It appears this machine has given a different result today than it gave Tuesday night, Colby said. The absentee ballots often are folded, and the creases could account for the discrepancy in the count. Following the recount, the ballots were resealed in their various precinct bags. The matter now goes to Tallahassee and the Division of Elections for a nal decision. We are absolutely barred by law from counting the ballots any further, Supervisor of Elections Carol Grif n said. Though the canvassing board cannot declare a winner, Colby said they would submit Thursdays results to Tallahassee. Tuesday night following the precinct returns, the canvassing board convened to count eight provisional ballots in an attempt to determine the winner of the District 3 race between incumbent Cates and challenger Brown. When the nal ballots were tallied, Cates won by a margin of seven votes, with ve of the eight provisional ballots going to Cates. After all the precincts had reported in, Brown trailed Cates by a mere ve votes, with Cates having 2,659 (50.04 percent) of the votes to Browns 2,654 (49.95 percent). Normally we dont count provisional votes until the next day, Peel said. After reviewing the provisional ballots, it was determined that none of them met the requirements that would have mandated the ballots being held until Thursday afternoon before being counted. So the canvassing board, consisting of Peel, County Commissioner Joel Pate and Supervisor of Elections Carol Grif n, sat down with Cates and Brown and reviewed each ballot. Provisional ballots are not anonymous, Peel said, and the names of the voters and the reasons they were issued provisional ballots were announced. There were nine provisional ballots, but one was disqualied because the voter registered after the elections book closing date. After the result was announced, Brown congratulated Grif n on her win. Peel said the canvassing board would count the ballots and apply the results to all the races, but the Cates/ Brown contest was the only one affected by the results. Although staying and counting the ballots on the spot is unusual, it did answer the question for the two contestants as to who would go home a winner. It was the right thing to do, Peel said of the latenight count. 2088203 Manual Audit of Voting System for the 2012 Primary Election The Washington County Canvassing the purpose of a manual audit of the Washington County Ag Center Hwy. 90 West urs., August 23, 2012 6-8 PM Chipley Kiwanis Club Dinner eater presents MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC A Night of Performed by the CHS Drama Team For tickets or more information contact Vickie Williams at (850) 326-0629 or Community South Credit Union (850) 638-8376. Special to the News CHIPLEY If you drink and drive in Chipley, beware the Chipley Police Department is joining with law enforcement throughout the nation for the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign through Sept. 3. The strong nationwide impaired driving crackdown will include highvisibility enforcement and high-pro le events and will be supported by national paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb alcohol-impaired driving through the Labor Day holiday weekend. CPD of cers will be aggressively looking for impaired drivers during the crackdown and will arrest anyone caught driving impaired. It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 grams per deciliter. Despite these laws, in 2010 more than 10,000 people died in crashes in which a driver or motorcycle rider was impaired. On average there is one alcohol-impaired, driving-related fatality every 51 minutes across America, Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews said. But this tragic loss of life can be reduced if we get impaired drivers off our roadways. Research has shown that high-visibility enforcement like the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign reduces alcohol-impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. By joining this nationwide effort, we will make Chipleys roadways safer for everyone throughout the Labor Day period. During the Labor Day weekend in 2010, 147 people were killed in motor vehicle traf c crashes involving drivers or motorcycle riders with BACs of .08 or higher. Of those fatalities, 80 percent occurred from 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m. Among 18to 34-yearold drivers killed in motor vehicle traf c crashes during the 2010 Labor Day weekend, 54 percent were alcohol-impaired. Obviously we want to remind everyone that it is illegal to drive impaired, and we hope the campaign will remind people that if they plan on drinking, to never get behind the wheel, Crews said. But if someone does choose to drive impaired, we will arrest them. No warnings. No excuses. Violators face jail time, loss of their driver licenses and steep nancial consequences such as higher insurance rates, attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work and the potential loss of job. When family, friends and coworkers nd out, violators also often face personal embarrassment. Driving impaired is simply not worth the risk, Crews said. So dont take the chance. Remember, we will be out in force and we will be watching, so Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. For more information, visit the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over website, www.nhtsa.gov/drivesober. From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Two Jacksonville men were arrested by Chipley police on charges of armed robbery on Aug. 13, according to a police report. Arrested were Zachary Tyler Arnold, 20, of Jacksonville, who was arrested on charges of armed robbery, and Alton Linsey Thodos, 26, of Jacksonville, who was arrested on charges of armed robbery accessory after the fact. Thodos also was wanted by the United States Marshals Service to be extradited back to Washington, D.C. Chipley police of cers were dispatched to the Apple elds store on Main Street in reference to an armed robbery on Aug. 13. The stores clerk said a man came into the store, produced a knife and demanded money and cigarettes. The clerk gave the man the money and cigarettes, and at that point the man ed the store on foot, according to the police report. A few minutes later, of cers encountered two men at the Super 8 Motel. One man ed into a wooded area, and the other was detained. With the assistance of the Washington County Sheriffs Department, the K-9 team from the Northwest Florida Reception Center and the Florida Highway Patrol, of cers were able to apprehend the second man at about 2 a.m., according to the report. U.S. Senator, incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson received 1,707 (61.58 percent) of Washington Countys votes, while challenger Glenn Burkett had 1,065 (38.41 percent) of the vote. In the Democratic race for representative in Congress District 2, Al Lawson carried the county with 1,118 (42.91 percent) of the votes. Leonard Bembry had 676 (25.95 percent), Alvin L. Peters got 649 (24.91 percent) and Mark Schlakman received 162 (6.218 percent). coming to the school, which fronts on Main Street. There is no school zone designated for the school, and Mayor Linda Cain said she was concerned to learn that modular buildings had been added to the campus without the city being consulted. City Administrator Dan Miner said the modular buildings were permitted in commercial-zoned property and that no permission from the city was necessary if the buildings had a DCA approval, per city ordinances. Can we look at that ordinance and see if we can stop this from happening in the future? Council Member Kevin Russell asked. I cant believe you can just bring in a building without coming before the city for planning or zoning permission. Resident Cheryl McCall asked how the school could add that many buildings to the campus and not affect both traf c and drainage. Im concerned about the drainage onto neighboring properties, Russell said. The school has access both from Main Street and Seventh Street, and the council discussed controlling access to the campus, perhaps by using one-way traf c from Main Street to Seventh Street. The mayor asked Miner to get with the schools ofcials and discuss the trafc situation. She said the ordinance allowing modular buildings to be placed within the city without prior consideration by the planning commission would be discussed at the citys next council workshop. Shouldnt the homeowners in the area have had some say in this? Russell asked. Im kind of perturbed that anyone could just bring a building in and put it down with the city knowing about it, Cain said. She also asked Miner to check and see if the school had a license for a K-12 program, as she was under the impression Grace and Glory was a preschool. In other business, McCall asked the city council to consider retaking control of the citys Facebook page, citing slow performance by the service provider, the Goulding Agency. When Goulding took over the city Facebook page, he promised one-hour turnaround on postings, said McCall, a former city council member So far, the only postings on the page have come from the city hall. The Goulding Agency, owned by Paul Goulding of Chipley, took control of the page at no charge to the city. Goulding sells ads on the page to reimburse his company for the time spent managing the page. The recent election results were not posted on Facebook until Thursday, McCall said. She noted that no notice of the cancellation of last weeks council workshop was posted on the Facebook page, resulting in her showing up for a meeting that was not held. Facebook is supposed to be interactive, she said. Tallahassee has four people working on their Facebook page. If you want to see the way it is supposed to be done, take a look at their page. McCall said the city should take back control of the webpage because it is not being kept up in the manner in which the city was promised. Cain said City Administrator Dan Miner should contact Goulding about the Facebook page. McCall said she was angered by the cancellation not being posted last week. Its not interactive. Hes not pushing the page the way it should be, she said. Cain said she agreed the city has not received the service they expected. Its not what we were told we would get, the mayor said.
