We are teaching our students not only typing skills but also research skills, eighth-grade teacher Brennis Colletti said. We want them to learn skills that they can use in all their classes. Seventh-grade teacher Tammie Hall said when students create projects such as PowerPoint presentations, they use reading, history, science and other subjects and skills from their education. This isnt just about computers and typing; it embodies their whole educational experience. Colletti said the majority of the middle school students neither have access to computers at home nor do they have access to high speed Internet. We have a bit of a skill disconnect between those students who do have access at home, but most of our students dont have that access. The computer lab was renovated recently, thanks to teachers and students at Washington-Holmes Technical Center, and the two teachers have had to create their own curriculum for the computer classes. These teachers went out on their own and studied the standards then created a curriculum to teach these skills to our kids, Principal Kim Register said. Not only did we not have this class, we didnt even have a textbook when we began this program. Our goal is to meet our students needs and keep developing our curriculum, Colletti said. The board also was introduced to the districts nominee for the Sunshine State Scholar, Richard Wayne Davenport. Davenport, a junior, will attend a statewide convention with the rest of the states 67 Sunshine State Scholars next year. Davenport is a student in the Chipley High School engineering program. The Sunshine State Scholars program recognizes Floridas top STEM students and introduces them to the vast postsecondary and career opportunities available right here in their home state, according to the website, oridaeducationfoundation.org. The two-day program is scheduled for Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 at the Doubletree Hotel at the entrance to Universal Orlando. Were proud to have you representing Washington County, board chairman Terry Ellis said. Too many students want to do just the minimum amount of work required, Ellis said. I commend you for your willingness to push yourself. Vernon Middle School Junior Beta Club members were also recognized for their performance at the recent state convention in Orlando. The board also chose member Wayne Saunders to serve as the Legislative Liaison alternate. Youre it, Ellis joked with Saunders after the unanimous vote. The board members also voted to pursue reinstatement of the Master Board Program distinction next year.

Call 638-0212. At this time of every year, cane grinding and syrup making will probably remain etched in my memory as long as I have mental faculties to recall events of the past. Your writer does not recall a time while growing up on the farm that making syrup wasnt included in the host of activities included in making a living by growing, producing and laying in store, for much of the food consumed throughout the entire year. The goal at our farm was to get syrup making over with before Christmas. Having an adequate supply of fresh, homemade, pure cane syrup sealed in cans or stored in glass jugs, to augment the storehouse of cured meats and sausage packed in hog lard, was a necessity. All were closely protected and guarded, thus insuring the basic foods to feed large families all year long. Mentioning this brings on the subject of hog killings, which, of necessity, must be included in the topic under consideration. Syrup making during my upbringing was centered around the home of my grandparents, Tom and Hannah Wells, who lived one quarter of a mile down the hill to the north from our home. Grandpa Wells did the cooking of the cane juice on an open kettle with the process of extracting the juice from the cane being carried by a carefully designed set of massive rollers erected for that express purpose and powered by a pair of mules hitched to a long, naturally bent, tongue, usually cut from a wooded area of the farm. The Prattler recently obtained a book titled Voices From the Countryside, written by Guy Miles. In his book, written in 1977, real-life farm talk, set largely in Alachua County near the University of Florida town of Gainesville, is featured. Miles moved to the region in 1957 and was intrigued by the knowledge of area farmers that motivated his book. He spent a lot of time on the segment on syrup making, explaining how the barrel of extracted cane juice is transferred over to the kettle for cooking into syrup. He details the installation and maintenance of the huge roller, including lubricating all the mechanism with lard! In the writing, that syrup maker states he is pulling his mill with a tractor as the horse is too fast, suggesting that when it moves fast, the cane is not fully attened, allowing the loss of too much of the juice. New cane syrup is already owing to the Prattler. Brad Hall, coach at Poplar Springs High School and son of Vernon syrup maker and former county commissioner John Hall, has shared a full quart of delicious, fresh from the kettle syrup with the Wells family. We have enjoyed Mr. Halls recipe in previous years when his label on the product honored his mother with the wording, Anner Lous Old Fashioned Cane Syrup. Park Trammell, a pulpwood producer who our family relies on for thinning and cutting pine timber, recently shared two bottles of syrup made by his cousin, Terry Trammell, on his Westville Farm. His catchy label states 100% Pure Cane Syrup no additives. One variety is from a yellow cane with no designation on the other. Hester and I have sampled all of the above and found them top quality when eaten on homemade biscuits, a talent Hester has known for a lifetime. The Wells pantry still has some leftover Robert E. Long cane syrup, produced in Two Egg, Fla., and some store-bought Todds Ole Time Ribbon Cane Syrup made by Joe F. Todd near Cottonwood, Ala. Today, my friend, former Washington County Property Appraiser, left my container of his special brand of homemade syrup with my brother and sisterin law, Max and Joyce Wells. We will give it a sampling soon. Young Steve Whittington and wife, Brenda, host a cane grinding and syrupmaking event at their Whittington Road Home on each Saturday following Thanksgiving. Their home is near that of his grandfather, Bascom Whittingon, a well-known syrup making authority of days gone by. We noticed that his son, John Whittington, was busily cooking off the batch of syrup, which seemed to nearing completion. John is the young man who has recently spearheaded the renovation of Hard Labor Church, of cially Washington Primitive Baptist Church. The annual festive happenings on the Whittington Farm, which has added numerous other old-time methods of rural life, continues to attract more visitors each year. Mr. Miles, in his Alachua County Book mentioned above, describes the hog killing process as follows: Yeah, itd look a town out there, by dern, some of them killing hogs, some of them dragging them up and some of them scalding them, some of them gutting them, some of them cutting up the meat, some of them cutting up the sausage meat, some of them grinding sausage, some of us seasoning, somebody stuf ng them, and somebody hanging them up on the dern sticks and hanging them in the smokehouse to smoke. He then added: Yeah, somebody was cooking that lard. Hopefully readers will not nd this description of a hog killing event as overly gruesome and unrealistic. Old timers in our neighborhood regarded it as more of a social event and were offended if they did not get invited to every community hog killing event in the area. The Heritage of Washington County Heritage Book, recently given a fourth printing, alludes to the practices of hog killing and syrup making outlined in todays story. If you missed getting a book in earlier printing, please contact the writer, Perry Wells, at 638-1016 or email perry1000@ bellsouth.net for your book. The price remains at $64.20 each, or the book can be mailed for $72.00. See you all next week. After a long search, a worldtraveled couple has found their dream place in Holmes County. Mark and Carla Templeton grew up in different areas of South Africa but spent their adult life in French St. Martins, where she owned an engineering company and he was a metal worker. Trained as a fashion designer, her love has always been for art. His metal-working skills were used in the shipbuilding industry in the over-populated Caribbean island of St Martins, but they had always dreamed of something different. (75,000 inhabitants populate the 33.59 sq. mile island.) After the births of their two daughters, Jesse an eighth grader and Sarah-Jane a sixth grader at Bethlehem School, the Templetons dreamed of a different life from the crowded city where they were unable to enjoy the natural beauty of the island. Then, Mark fell ill due to metal poisoning and the dream became more urgent. After four years of medical treatments, which seemed to exacerbate the harmful effects of the malady, they determined to seek a different route and began making preparations to emigrate to the U.S. Their search for a suitable place to build their dream led them to Utah and Colorado, but the cold climate did not suit their tropical conditioning. They Then found the Jim Locke acreage on the Internet and contacted Betty Slay, local Realtor. When they came here and met this Southern lady and Bethlehem school principal, Jerry Dixon, their search was over. Now they are working tirelessly to make their dream a reality. The 80-by-36-foot horse barn has been transformed into a hands-on arts and craft center. Horse stanchions with dirt oors have been transformed into beautifully oored work areas with recycled wood from partitions. A handicap-accessible bathroom and washroom have been built. A rustic registration counter designed and built by the Templetons greets those who patronize the facility. Tables designed artistically from recycled products will accommodate individuals or groups who come to take advantage of the opportunity to expand their sensory experience through arts and crafts. The LazyL gate of the former Locke Ranch will admit the visitor to the Silver Door Art and Craft Center. This unique business is expected to attract families, school students or individuals where they can learn ceramics, clay molding, glass fusion, paper crafts, sewing crafts, textile painting and decorating or woodcrafts. A separate metal studio will assist you in designing decorative yard art or other decorative items. Whether it is for a school project or your personal project, The Silver Door personnel will teach you the techniques and provide space to work along with the necessary materials with which to complete the project. There will be a nominal fee charged for the facility that will include basic supplies plus a charge for the items you work on, for example, the greenware for ceramics. As a former Montessori teacher, Mrs. Templeton understands the importance of developing the sensory aspect of personality. They expect to hold either day camps or weekly camps in the summer where this aspect can be expanded. An aquaponic demonstration and a vegetable garden will be a part of the camp program. They hope to hold a ribbon cutting by the end of the year so the public can come and see and begin to use the facility at 2907 Marvin Moss Road, Bonifay off Highway 277 N. The Templetons are already active in the community. They are members of the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce and Carla volunteers at Bethlehem High School. She recently returned from Orlando, where she helped chaperone the middle school Beta Club. They brought home a rst place ribbon for their banner, a second place for their digitally enhanced photograph and a second place for their decorative wreath. We welcome this family to our county and wish them much success as they strive to make their dream a reality. Dear Editor, If I hadnt seen it in print in the Dec. 5, 2012, edition of the Holmes County Times Advertiser I wouldnt have believed it. The commissioners feel ambushed. Sorry, but they report to the citizens of Holmes County. We have a right to ask questions about where and why our tax dollars are being wasted. There is no better time to ask then at the end of a meeting when current business is fresh on everyones mind. It would be better yet to let the public take part in the initial discussions. Im hoping something will change with three new commissioners. They sure need to. Previously, Ive tried to get answers via phone and been yelled at even before the subject I wanted to discuss was even brought up, then hung up on. Ive been promised callbacks, which never arrived. Ive been told we are not discussing this subject further because Im tired of talking about it. Others have told me of similar actions. I formerly attended the meeting, but it got to be so bad I quit going. The old saying If you cant take the heat, get out of the kitchen applies. For those who feel ambushed, for the good of Holmes County, please resign now.Dick BashtBonifayWednesday, December 12, 2012 Finding a lifetime dream in Northwest FloridaSPECIAL TO THE NEWSPeople work with the cane press, necessary to syrup making, in the Alachua County setting.December a time for syrup making and hog killingPERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison LETTER TO THE EDITORIf you cant take the heat, get out of the kitchen

Forecasting Panhandle shing for December is a bit like forecasting the BCS champion in Septemberlots of prognostications, but nobody really knows whats going to happen. A whole lot depends on the weather; recent winters have been mild, basically extending November shing all the way through Christmas; reds and trout both on the atson sunny afternoonsand in the creeks and holes on cool mornings. With night temperatures at least through December 10 forecast to drop no lower than the mid-50s, it looks like the winter of 2012 will be a lot like 2011without a burst of severe cold, sh on the ats remain on or near their fall haunts. The water is clear due to less algae, the new and full moon tides are at their lowest, and its sight shing for reds at its nest so long as the water temperatures cooperate currently around 65 degrees afternoons in the bays from Fort Walton to Apalach. Thats prime temperature for reds and trout as well as ounder. Poling the ats and looking for the sh on slough edges, around oyster bars and in potholes does the joband a good hand with a y rod can even connect with streamer ies, though long casts with a live shrimp or a Gulp! crab are a much easier way to go. The same sh that come up to sun on the afternoon ats on bright days are likely to be in tidal creeks and potholes in Apalachicolas East Bay, around the back of St. Vincents Island, in lower St. Joe Bay, in West Bay and upper North Bay, and in the east end of Choctawhatchee Bay. Many of the tidal creeks that feed into the above-named bayous have oystery potholes in themaverage creek depth might be two feet, but a couple hundred yards in you nd 3 to 5 feetand lots of sh on chilly mornings. The bottoms are black mud which probably acts as a heat sink to warm the waters and attract the sh. It takes some chart study and some lowspeed probing in a shallow draft boator a kayakto nd these spotsor hire a guide who already knows where all of them arebut when you get on one of these spots on low water, it can literally be sh-in-abarrelthey wont leave on low tide, and so long as you stay well back and dont spook them, you can wear them out by simply casting live shrimp into the hole. It can be a potpourri, with sheepshead, black drum, lady sh and jacks in the mix along with the trout and reds. Finding the sh is a matter of easing along on the trolling motor and casting a live shrimp on a size 1 or 1/0 hook via spinning gear with 10-pound-test braid, weighted with a BB-shot, into every observable hole. (A piece of cut shrimp on a 3/16 ounce jig head is easier to cast and also works pretty well. Use only fresh-cut shrimpfrozen shrimp draws few bites.) Most anglers use 18 inches of 20-pound-test uorocarbon between running line and hookthe added stiffness of this leader helps prevent tangles, and the uoro is more durable around oyster shells than straight braid. Tie it in with a double-line doubled uniknot, that is doubling both the leader and the running line before you tie the two uniknots. The doubled line prevents the braid from cutting through the leader when you put on the pressure to land a chunky red. You can also catch some sh on a DOA plastic shrimp, a 4-inch Tsunami split-tail swimbait or any number of small plastictailed jigs shed dead slow, but arti cials usually are less effective than natural baits throughout the winter. On some creeks, the holes are around outside bends, at others where side sloughs run in. Pitch your bait to the likely targets, wait ve minutes and if you dont get bit, move to the next. Longer sloughs with more tide movement are best. Many creeks have no holes and no sh its a matter of staying on the trolling motor, push pole or paddles until you locate that honey-hole. Of course, if youre in a larger boat, its also a matter of not getting stuck in the creek as the last of the tide trickles out. Many creeks will let you in when theres an hour of runout left, but wont let you out. Flat-bottomed aluminum jonboats are much better for this duty than the vee-bottom bayboats that work so well in open water. In any case, wear wading booties and dont be surprised if you have to get out and push on occasion. Speaking of which, some potholes are best shed by grounding the boat and walking up the oyster bar into casting range. The sh are less likely to be ushed by this approach, though in some areas oozy muck bottoms make wading impossible. Chest waders will be appreciated on most days the water is not yet icy but its pretty darned chilly. As the water gets even colder, the creek action may slow down and the sh will move to much deeper waterthen it becomes a matter of nding rock outcroppings, sunken boats or other cover in 8 to 12 feet of water. A side-scanning sonar can be a big help in this, for those who can afford these highdollar machines. This deep water bite is again best with live shrimp for trout and reds, and you may pick up some mangrove snapper, black sea bass and whiting as well. There also may be a few straggler ounder in these locations. However, if you really want ounder this month, head for the inlets and sh just off the jetty rocks, or on the near-shore arti cial reefs. This is usually a November bite, but at least in early December this year its likely to hang on because of the moderate temperatures. Get on the right spot and you can quickly bring a dozen of these tasty at sh over the side. They readily take live shrimp shed on bottom, but the killer bait is live killi sh, AKA mud-minnows, which can be caught in minnow traps placed in the above-mentioned tidal creeks, particularly just off the oyster bars. These dark-colored little minnows, typically 2 to 3 inches long, are ounder candy; sh them on a jig heavy enough to make rm contact with bottom despite waves and current, and crawl them right along the sand; if theres a ounder anywhere near by, hell attack. Green water shing is pretty much a memory until springking sh, cobia and Spanish among other nearshore species, chase the vast bait sh migrations, and these head south when water drops below 68 degrees. Ditto for the bluewater species like dolphin, sails and the tunasgo deer hunting for a few months, or sit in the garage, sharpen your hooks and reline your reels as you wait for spring. If youd like to try party boat shing this month, there are plenty of trigger sh, gray (or mangrove) snapper, black sea bass and some red grouper available on reefs 10 to 20 miles out. Two premiere species, gag grouper and red snapper, are likely to be caught but must be released because of closed seasons. It you want an easy, no bother way to go shing and get a few sh for dinnerat an affordable pricethe big party boat eets like those at Destin and Panama City Beach are the ticket to ride. However, the big thing about stepping aboard a party boat in December is that you had better have your scopolamine with you; more days than not will be rough. If youre at all prone to getting sea sick, its best to wait until the morning of the trip and then check the marine forecast before you go down to the docks to buy your ticket. Most people can stand 2 to 3 footers. A lot cant stand anything over 4 feet. Once they get out there with a full load of customers the skipper isnt arent going to bring you back no matter how seasick you are. Its better to be safe than very, very sorry. If you have a moderately tender stomach, one trick is to put your scope patch on behind your ear the night before you plan on going outwith that much time to work, the drug does a much better job than if you put it on the morning of the trip. (By the way, if you own a boat and gure youll just buy a trip on a party boat to snitch some GPS numbers with your pocket GPS, best forget itthe skippers of the headboats have caught on to this practice, and will con scate your device if they catch you at it.)By STAN KIRKLANDFWC With our hunting seasons in full swing, there are literally thousands of hunters afield. Most hunters are law-abiding and never find themselves in sticky situations. Most hunters are also guided by a sense of hunting ethics. Simply put, hunting ethics involve a pattern of behavior that isnt written as law but is respectful of fellow outdoorsmen and women. Sometimes, hunter ethics arent what they should be, and conflicts arise. Case in point: I was speaking with a local duck hunter who hunted Lake Seminole last week. He told me he and two equally hard-core duck hunters met at 3:30 a.m., went out to their favorite location, put out two dozen decoys and concealed their boat in the marsh along the shoreline. Several other boats and duck hunters soon arrived, and one group put out decoys and set up within 100 yards of the first hunters, despite the first group shining a light and asking them to give them some space. To add insult to injury, the late-arriving hunters shot at ducks out of range at daylight, diminishing anyone elses chances for success. A similar situation we sometimes hear about involves those who hunt wild turkeys on public or private lands. Again, some folks hunt near another hunter, especially when one hunter is entrenched long before the other person arrives on the scene. In both situations, a sense of etiquette was lost and, instead of having an enjoyable relaxing, quality time outdoors, tempers flared and people left unhappy. Sometimes a sense of ethics is lost when fishing, as well. This summer I spoke to an angler who was fishing on a wreck several miles off the Bay County coast when a dive boat arrived and several divers with spear guns descended into the depths. The fisherman was beyond livid. While its understandable that irritated hunters and fishermen wanted to report the incidents to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, no laws were broken. What these situations, and a thousand other similar ones in the outdoors, should remind us is to keep in mind the Golden Rule and treat others afield the way we want to be treated. If that happens, we will all be happier.WINTER WANDERINGIN PANHANDLE WATERSPHOTO COURTESY OF YAMAHA MARINERed sh continue to prowl Northwest Florida marshes so long as water temperature remains in the 60s.

DENVER, CO PHOTOS BY HEATHER LEIPHART | Halifax Media GroupBozemans Cameron Hofmeister pinned Bays Logan Acree in 19 seconds of their 106-pound match on Thursday in the Ram Quad meet. Hofmeister, a seventh-grader, improved to 11-1.Wrestling wonderSeventh-grader a success for BozemanBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner firstname.lastname@example.org SPRINGFIELD Cameron Hofmeister would wrestle against a 21-year-old and he wouldnt offer one complaint if asked to do so. Thats saying a lot for anyone. Its says a great deal more given the fact hes only 13. The 106-pound Bozeman wrestler improved to 11-1 after the Ram Quad meet on Thursday. The seventh-grader was thrust into action at 106 in replacing Jonah Savage, who had trouble making weight and has instead patrolled 113 most of the season. Bozeman coach J.D. Raybourne said Hofmeisters addition to the lineup helped avoid forfeits in the lightest weight class and he admitted there werent lofty goals placed on the rst-year competitor. He has exceeded our expectations, Raybourne said. Hes shocked us all and has really taken to wrestling like a duck to water. Hofmeister earned a forfeit win in the Bucks rst dual match with Arnold. He won his second match against Bays Logan Acree in 19 seconds by pin fall and again earned a forfeit against Rutherford. Someone joked with Raybourne that Hofmeister should be put into a match at heavyweight just to have a bout. Oh, hed do it, Raybourne said. Hofmeister agreed and said he entered the sport without nerves or fear. He has two older brothers, including one on Bozemans team, and wrestling and horsing around toughened him, he said. The rookie learned to stand up for himself at an early age and its translated on the mat, as he faces opponents as much as ve years older. Ill wrestle anybody, Hofmeister said. Id wrestle anyone just to keep getting better. So far, Ive done really well. Thats an understatement. Hofmeister spoke as if he had been wrestling for many years. Raybourne was thankful he can have Hofmeister for many more to come. He added the ability to wrestle in a competitive environment will help Hofmeister gain experience that few others in Bay County receive. There is no middle school wrestling programs in county schools and Bozeman is allowed to have as young as sixth-graders on varsity teams since its a K-12 institution. Its extremely important, especially if youre looking to get to state and win it, Raybourne said. The hopes of a lot of Bay County high-schoolers to become state champs is harder because a lot of them cant start until ninth grade. Hofmeister and some other Bucks are ahead of the curve and competing on the varsity level. However, he has been the most successful and has shown con dence and re, Raybourne said. That was most evident on Tuesday when Hofmeister lost for the rst time by technical fall. Most wrestlers arent eager to wrestle again after a lopsided loss let alone face the same opponent again minutes later. There was a slight chance he would have been able to avenge the loss in the Wewahitchka event, but the opportunity didnt materialize. I wanted another shot at him right away, Hofmeister said. I knew what he was like on the mat, I knew what I could do the second time. Its that attitude to move forward and improve that impressed Raybourne and his coaching staff. Hofmeister isnt bothered easily and if he is he doesnt show it, Raybourne said. Hofmeister also has maintained a level head even while starting off with a stellar record. That said, he added he wasnt surprised by his early triumphs and had a quick and simple answer when asked if hes exceeded his own expectations. No, I dont think so, he said. He admitted there is room to improve, however. He said he needs to be a better thinker on the mat and also hone how he applies holds and learning better body position. Hes done well thus far and Raybourne said Hofmeister earned a place in the lineup for the rest of the season. Where that is remains the question. Savage is likely to take over the reins at 106 after the Christmas break, but Raybourne said Hofmeister could succeed just as well at 113. Hes that good that you need to keep him in there, Raybourne said.From Staff ReportsMARIANNA Chipola mens basketball coach Patrick Blake announced the signing of two more players to his initial recruiting class. Sam Cassell Jr., son of the long-time NBA veteran and Florida State star, signed with Chipola after he was ruled ineligible at the University of Maryland. Torian Graham, a 6foot-4 shooting guard from Raleigh, N.C., previously was committed to North Carolina State. We de nitely lucked out to get two guys that are Top 100 recruits in the country, Blake said in a press release. Sam was obviously at Maryland, and Torian couldve played almost anywhere in the country. Those are great additions to the backcourt, and they t the style that we want to play. Theyre going to represent Chipola and the high standard we have here well. Weve been following those two guys since the summer and tracking their progress and trying to build a relationship with them. It just so happened that it took a little longer than expected, but Im happy and pleased to have both of them. Cassell is a 6-2 point guard, and Blake said he sees similarities between him and his dad. Sam Cassell Sr. played 16 years in the NBA and won three world championships. Hes a scoring point guard that plays a lot like his father, Blake said. He just plays in control and at a great pace, and he just has a knack for hitting big shots. Its just like watching his dad. Hes really great at changing speeds. He doesnt really blow you away with his athleticism, but he nds a way to get open and put the ball in the hoop or nd an open teammate. Blake said Graham will step on the oor as the Indians most athletic player. Torian is going to be an impact player right from the jump with his size and his athleticism, Blake said. Were already athletic, but hes our best athlete. Hes great in the open oor, and hes an abovethe-rim nisher. Hes just a very high-octane player that can really score in bunches.From Staff ReportsPANAMA CITY Jessica Harris scored twice to lead Bay to a 7-0 victory over Walton in a girls prep soccer match on Thursday.

FREE Special to the NewsPANAMA CITY Cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Lynn Seto recently performed the areas rst completely robotic mitral valve repairs on two local patients using the da Vinci Si HD Surgical System at Bay Medical-Sacred Heart. A procedure that is traditionally performed through a sternotomy, a large open incision through the breastbone to expose the heart, is now signi cantly less invasive. Patients undergoing a robotic mitral valve repair have three small incisions on their side through their rib cage, no sternotomy, a shorter hospital stay, signi cantly less pain and scarring, less blood loss and less risk of infection along with a much faster recovery and return to normal activities. This procedure is only offered in a handful of facilities in the Southeast with the closest being UAB in Birmingham, Ala. The da Vinci Si HD Surgical System integrates 3-D HD endoscopy and state-ofthe-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeons eyes and hands into the surgical eld. Using a 3-D endoscopic camera inserted into the body at the surgical site, along with two to three other tiny incisions for the robotic instruments, the da Vinci System provides surgeons a magni ed crystal clear view inside the body and enhanced dexterity and superior precision in repairing delicate internal structures such as the hearts mitral valve. Bay Medical-Sacred Heart rst offered robotic surgery in 2005, starting with prostatectomies and moving later into gynecologic procedures and kidney procedures. Our cardiothoracic surgeons also use the da Vinci robot extensively for lobectomies to treat lung cancer. Dr. Seto, who was recently recruited to Bay Medical-Sacred Heart, brings a wealth of experience in minimally invasive heart surgery using the da Vinci System, including her fellowship training at The Cleveland Clinic, and will be further expanding what we are able to offer to heart surgery patients. Dr. Seto is one of just a few surgeons in the Southeast able to offer these state-of-the-art cardiac surgery techniques.

Town Clerk Jody Sellers reported the de cit to the council during their regularly scheduled meeting Dec. 4. Town Attorney Jeff Goodmans completed addendum, which was requested by the council, would allow the town to increase water rates, which was explained by Town Council President Danny Powell in September. Powell said the addendum was a necessity to help pay for any possible loans associated with moving forward with the water system replacement project. The project was pushed forward when the council approved the engineering rm Hatch Mott MacDonald to create a plan for $9,000. The council was pressed to create these plans so they could include them in the grant application for extra points, explained Jim Bundy of Hatch Mott MacDonald. Bundy also said their fees, including the $9,000 for construction plans, would have been covered by the grant, and until then, Bundy guaranteed the town would not be billed for the services. What it boils down to is whether or not youre willing to invest $9,000 with the chance of only having a set of plans, Goodman said. The council held the second and nal hearing for Esto to continue with submitting the application for the grant for the water line replacement project and then approved to submit the application.

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Extra Special to ExtraVERNON The Vernon Middle School chapter of Junior Beta club recently held a Showcase night to highlight the many areas of competition before departing for state convention on Dec. 2. The night of Showcase was scheduled so everyone could get rid of the jitters before presenting before other Florida Junior Beta Clubs. Betas will be competing in Orlando, in categories ranging from quiz bowl, academic competitions, spelling bee, arts and crafts, living literature, songfest, special talent, banner, scrapbook and many other areas. Last year, Vernon Middle placed in a couple of categories, which therefore made the school eligible to compete at the Nationals held in June 2012 in Greensboro, N.C. Mrs. Dennis made her famous cinnamon rolls and sold 428 of them at the event. The National Junior Beta Club is the nations largest independent, educational, non-profit, youth organization. The purpose of Junior Beta is to encourage and reward academic achievement and to promote those qualities of character that make for good citizenship. The members learn to lead by serving others. By SHARON MCMILLIONSpecial to Extra CHIPLEY Bishop John McMillion celebrated his 56th year on Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7, with family and friends. John is a veteran of many honors. Not only is he a Navy veteran and a gentleman, he is most of all a soldier in Gods army. John has been preaching for 51 years. John McMillion was born in South Carolina and reared in Chipley, where he graduated with honors from Chipley High School in 1974. He spent seven years on active duty with the Navy and 21 years in the Navy Reserve. John taught school at Gulf Coast College, Dozier School for Boys, Chipley High School and Northwest Florida School in DeFuniak Springs. He now teaches and pastors Gods people. Bishop John wears many hats and has helped many with nance and economic problems and legal problems. Johns motto is, I believe God, though broken up from a car accident its not what somebody can do for me, but what I can do for somebody.

For many pet lovers, holiday traveling without their beloved pet simply wont do. Taking your pet along can make a holiday event fun for everyone, if you plan carefully. Sarah Grifn, a lecturer at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), says the rst step in preparing for your pets travel is to keep up-to-date with interstate and international travel regulations, which can be found online at www.aphis.usda.gov. If you are going across state borders a health certicate is required, which involves a veterinarian examining your pet, updating their vaccinations and ensuring that your pet is travel healthy, Grifn said. You should also make sure that pets are allowed at places you will be staying, especially with inns and hotels. Must-have items to pack for your pets travels include a collar and leash for walks during pit-stops, a crate and blankets for a cozy place for your pet to sleep, toys for your pet to relax and dishes for food, water and medications. A list of veterinarians and/or pet emergency clinics along the way and at the destination is important in case of any unfortunate accidents, Grifn said. You should also make sure your pet has a form of identication with upto-date information, like a microchip. Pet owners should remember that traveling is stressful for pets in much of the same way it is for their owners. Make sure that your pet is habituated to riding in a car before starting an extended road trip. While medication can be prescribed for anxiety, it is highly recommended to just train your pet for extensive car outings. When on outings make sure your pet is restrained in the car by either a harness, a pet-friendly seat belt or is safe in a crate, as this protects the pet and the cars other passengers, Grifn said. A pet bed or blanket should be kept with your pet at all times to help keep their anxiety in check. It is also important to make sure the seats containing your pet have their air bags deactivated to prevent any unfortunate accidents. While out on the road, make sure to stop about every three or so hours to allow your pet to use the bathroom and drink water.AABOOUTT PETPET TALTALKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

These emotions, which are closely natural mechanisms for self-preservation. It is clearly a good thing to feel fear when in the presence of real danger or anger. Fear and anger are a bit like warning bells or alarms, telling us that we need to and theres no real danger. Some politicians and certain media outlets are good at stoking fear and anger, and seem bent on keeping us in a perpetual state of fear and anger. If a tornado is heading your way, its probably appropriate to be fearful (and to get in the basement), but should we really be angry or fearful about national or international politics? We should not be passively resigned in the face of politics. People should be informed and get involved in local, state and national politics, but we need not get overly disturbed about it. The real problem with all of the fear and anger generated these days is how unproductive and debilitating it is. It keeps the talking heads happy, but it leaves the rest of us fearful, angry, and powerless to do much about it. So, perhaps we should keep our heads calm and really need it.

FAITH Wednesday, December 12, 2012 BPage 4Sectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comBy THE REV. JAMES L. SNYDER, D.LITT The Christmas holiday season is always ablaze with beautiful colors. I nd it hard to be gloomy or grumpy this time of the year. I must confess, not everybody belongs to this Holiday Cheer Club. It is an exclusive club but open to anybody who is tired of being grumpy. Colors abound throughout the season and the Christmas songs highlight this. Im dreaming of a white Christmas. Ill have a blue Christmas without you. Rudolph the red nose reindeer. Oh, the wonderful colors of Christmas. One of the most obvious colors of Christmas is green. Right at the center of this Christmas holiday is the Christmas tree decked from top to bottom in beautiful colors and lights. Nothing says Christmas quite like an old-fashioned Christmas tree. My thoughts along this line are, let the grumps and grouches complain about the Christmas tree. For myself, I will look with admiring wonder at the beauty of the Christmas tree. Then of course, who could forget good old Santa Claus dressed in his red suit. I never could gure out why Santas suit was always red. Throughout the years, I never gave it too much thought and assumed it was a fashion statement from the North Pole. I had some time this week to do a little rummaging through my old thought gallery. For the most part, we only celebrate Christmas once a year. I think Charles Dickens had it right with old Mr. Scrooge, after his conversion, celebrating Christmas every day of the year. I wonder what kind of world this would be if all of us would celebrate Christmas every day of the year? If I were president of the United States, I would enact a law that would set aside one year to be a year of celebrating Christmas all 365 days. I think I would only have to do it once and nobody would want to go back to the old grumpy times of celebrating it only one time out of the year. I was thinking about this the other night when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage jarred me back to reality. Have you, she queried most seriously, nished with your Christmas shopping? Christmas shopping! I had forgotten about it. I know we celebrate Christmas every year but I sometimes get so caught up with celebrating Christmas I forget about buying Christmas presents. After all, that Christmas tree would be somewhat naked if there were not Christmas presents to litter around the bottom. I had to look at my wife and say, No, I havent even started. By the time the dust of that thought settled I had to ask her, How many Christmas presents do I have to buy? Silly boy, she said with a chuckle that could compete with good old Santa Claus any day of the week, you got to buy Christmas presents for everybody in our family. Then she chuckled some more just to set that thought into my cranium. Everybody in our family? Now I am beginning to see red. Santas red suit has nothing to do with a North Pole fashion statement; it has everything to do with my nancial statement. I got a piece of paper and together my wife and I jotted down all of the members in our family. A few members I wanted to veto, but my wife vetoed my veto. By the time we were done, I would have to purchase Christmas presents for hundreds and hundreds of family members. Boy, did I see red! At the beginning of the month of December, my checkbook is in the black, but each day of the month the black begins to fade into expanding shades of red. By the time the 24th of the month comes around my checkbook is a solid, brilliant, scarlet red. I sighed quite deeply as I closed my checkbook. I almost said to my wife, Remember the day...? I stopped short of vocalizing that thought. I thought back when we rst were married, which seems like hundreds of years ago, we only got presents for each other. I bought one present for her and she bought one present for me. What a Merry Christmas we had back in the day. A few days later as we were wrapping those presents I began thinking of another color. I looked at my wife and said, This must be what they mean when they talked about the golden days. She laughed, and I thought some more. My thoughts centered on the fact of what a wonderful family we have. After all those years, we have accumulated a marvelous family. Thinking about all the ones in my family, I began to retract those thoughts of veto. You know, I said to my wife quite thoughtfully, red becomes my checkbook. All that red means all that family. The Christmas holiday season means family. There is no family more glorious than the family of God. The Bible says, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV). The whole spirit of Christmas has to do with giving, and God started it all. I do not mind a red Christmas because everyone in my family is worth it. As Tiny Tim said, God bless us all, everyone.
