Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, September 29, 2012 Special to the News CHIPLEY Chipley Gar den Clubs will meet at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the pavilion at Shivers Park. Club member Lyndal Pleas will present a program on collecting and pressing wildowers. Several hand outs will be provided and she will demonstrate how to press wildowers easily collected in your own back yard or in a nearby open public area. On display will be a few recently pressed Fall wild owers and Wausau Garden Club member Judy Solgers award-winning Pressed Wildower Collection. It is surprising how many common garden owers are actually wild owers or were developed from wildowers. A very good example is Lycoris Radiata, more commonly known as Hurricane or Spi der lily, which can be seen blooming in many local gardens and in the wild in Northwest Florida. The public is invited to attend this fun and infor mative meeting. Chipley Garden Club welcomes visi tors and new members at anytime. If you need direc tions or would like more in formation, please call Club President Karen Roland at 850-638-9968 or email her at blueorchidoasis@yahoo. com. Special to the News CHIPLEY Spanish Trail Play house will present The Cem etery Club, the nal production of Season 5, on Oct.19-21. The Cemetery Club is writ ten by Ivan Menchell and pro duced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Directed by Kevin Russell, the cast includes: Terrie Garrett as Ida; Tina Goodman as Lucille; Trish Payne as Doris; Dawn Gentry as Mildred; Mike Jacobs as Sam. Rebekah Wolfe will serve as Stage Manager, Rob Nixon will serve as Set Director, and Phyl lis Sloan will serve as Props Mistress. The play centers around three widows who meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life. Lucille is a feisty embodi ment of the girl who just wants to have fun. Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. Doris and Lucille squash the bud ding romance between Sam and Ida but are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Idas heart. This is a heart-warming tale of true friendship and the constant struggle for love. If you enjoy watching Steel Magnolias or the Golden Girls, then you will love The Cemetery Club, states Di rector Kevin Russell. Tickets for The Cemetery Club will be available to sponsors of the Spanish Trail Playhouse starting Monday October 8th from 9am1pm at the Spanish Trail Play house Business Ofce (680 2nd Street).

Wild Game Processing: From Field to Table is a sixhour workshop held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today at the UF animal sciences depart ment, part of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Proper handling and processing minimizes the risk of food-borne illness and improves the qual ity and storage life of wild game products for your family, said Chad Carr, a UF meat science assistant professor.

Carr said proper eld dressing can minimize the chances of cross-contami nation with pathogens from other sources and proper handling can extend the storage life of wild game products by discouraging bacterial growth. The workshop focuses mainly on deer and wild hogs, Carr said, because theyre the most commonly taken large game species in North Florida. The program includes both lecture material and hands-on demonstrations with deer and hog carcass es. Topics include diseases, proper eld dressing and skinning, game meat safety and quality, butchering and safe transportation. There will be a session on sausage processing.

Religion is, for many individuals, a source of great joy. For others, though, it can become so intense that they completely lose their sense of humor. I grew up around some people like that. For them, religion was very serious business, indeed. Everything about their beliefs seemed to have a dark cloud around it. Children from these families didnt smile or laugh like other kids. Neither the kids nor adults interacted well with others, and they came off as cold, stand-of sh and judgmental (whether they actually were or not). I recently found myself guilty of being overly serious about religion. I was invited to attend a service, one from a different belief system than my own. I found myself shocked at all the joking and laughter during a sacred moment. People, including the clergy, were having a good laugh right in the middle of a religious ritual. They didnt seem concerned about the seriousness of the occasion. I thought about it afterward, asking myself how they could be so casual about religion. But if I had worked up the nerve to ask them that question, they might have responded with a question of their own: How could I be so serious? So maybe I need to lighten up. Yes, people were having a rollicking good time at a religious service. It shocked me, but perhaps its a shock that I needed. The last thing I want is for my religion (or anyone elses) to become dreary, pompous and, worst of all, humorless. Several researchers have formulated checklists for determining dangerous aspects of religion. Answer yes to enough items on one of these checklists and you might be involved in what some people call a destructive cult. One of these checklists, compiled by the late Isaac Bonewits, lists the usual danger signs youd expect: censorship, violence, manipulation, aggressive recruiting and so on. But another danger sign on his list is grimness. This is de ned as the amount of disapproval concerning jokes about the group, its doctrines or its leader(s). If youre in a religious group with no sense of humor, proceed with caution. Can your spiritual leader take a joke? No? Thats actually a warning sign of a potentially dangerous religion. Im not advocating turning your religion into a circus sideshow. In fact, Ive seen pictures from a Mass celebrated in a cathedral by a troupe of clowns in full makeup. As liberal as I can be about religion, I personally found it to be in poor taste. Then again, maybe Im just too uptight. Either Im getting old (a distinct possibility) or just feel that theres a difference between postmodern religion and making a mockery of sacred rites. Ive seen almost every imaginable riff on modern religion, from a service with a Star Trek motif, a backward service by a Baptist church (they were afraid that they were becoming too ritualistic, so they ran their service in backward order), a rite involving self-hypnosis by staring intently at a TV set and the U2Charist (the Holy Eucharist set to the music of the rock band U2). But for some reason, the clowns were just too much for me. Go gure. Something that may seem like a fresh innovation for one person can be offensive to another. About the time I think Ive seen it all from drive-through funerals to Christian pole dancing (yes, it exists) someone comes up with something new. Most of it is ne by me, but once in a great while, somebody rolls out a religious practice that strikes me as questionable. Ive taken part in plenty of rituals both inside and outside of my own religion, but have also said a polite no, thanks to a few. And thats okay. If something bothers you, dont do it. But of course, if you decline, always be courteous. I do feel that there are times when cutting up during a religious observance is de nitely out of place. Religious holidays that are intentionally somber in nature, such as Ash Wednesday or Yom Kippur, really arent a good time to unleash your inner comedian. But there are other times when its okay to smile. Theres no need to treat religious services as if they were some kind of punishment. Services should re ect the joy that religion brings to its followers lives. Instead, some people look completely miserable during religious services. It raises questions, especially for visitors, about why people dont seem happier about something that affects their lives so deeply. Are you truly happy with your beliefs? If not, what can you do about it? If so, how can you spread that happiness to others? Does your religion give you a sense of true gladness? If so, then youve got something worth holding on to.

If it came from ShelterBox, you could stay alive. Inside each box is a sturdy tent large enough to accommodate an extended family, complete with privacy partitions. The box also contains thermal blankets, mosquito nets, water puri cation supplies, a tool kit, a stove, bowls, pans, mugs, water storage containers and more. Its even got coloring books for the kids. The large box itself has many uses, too. ShelterBox has produced something amazing: a box that can save lives. Civic clubs, schools, religious organizations, businesses and private donors have all worked to get these boxes sent to disaster sites around the world, but more help is still needed to get boxes to every family that needs one.
