Washington Rehab and Nursing Center is offering an op portunity to both build friendships with senior citizens and provide social contact for those who might not receive much interaction out side the centers walls. Washington Rehab and Nurs ing Center kicked off its Adopta-Grandparent program this month.

On June 17, 2013, the HCSO received a 911 call from Peacock, who told dispatchers Armstrong had fallen down the front steps of their trailer in the Esto community and landed on his knife, according to the report. Holmes County deputies, along with Holmes County EMS, responded and found Armstrong in the front yard with a severe knife wound to his chest. He was transported to Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Ala., and underwent emergen cy surgery but never re gained consciousness and died from complications a few days later, according to the police report. In vestigators noted several inconsistencies in Pea cock statement and dis covered signs of drug use at the residence. The report indicated investigators were later able to locate a 911 call from Armstrongs cell phone that had been routed to the Jackson County Sheriffs Ofce in which he stated he had been stabbed in the neck. Investigators also were able to locate witnesses who indicat ed Peacock and Armstrong had been arguing that morning, and he was stabbed as a result of the altercation. After a nine-month investigation, a warrant was is sued for the arrest of Peacock on charges of manslaughter. Peacock is currently serving a sentence in the Florida Depart ment of Corrections for neglect of a child, which also stemmed from the incident.

Local A2 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 14, 2014 he served rst in the Merchant Marines and then in the 71st Infantry and 66th In fantry in the U.S. Armys European The ater of War before receiving an Honorable Discharge. He also received a Purple Heart for his bravery and injuries sustained by shrapnel. The French Government later honored Spangenberg as well, bestowing upon him the French Legion of Honor, the countrys highest honor, for his contribu tions to the liberation of France during that time. Spangenberg went on to work for the Florida Department of Transportation, from which he retired after more than 30 years as District Maintenance Engineer. Spangenberg also served First Baptist Church in Chipley as a Deacon and Trea surer, was a Gideon, and often volunteered his services to Habitat for Humanity. He also volunteered his engineering talents to building construction on the Baptist College of Florida campus in Graceville, served with the Florida Baptist Disaster Relief and American Red Cross organiza tions as a shelter manager, and worked as an engineering consultant for the Fed eral Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Spangenberg will perhaps be best re membered for his service to the Boy Scouts of America, however. Scout Master Daniel Bradford served with Spangenberg in the scout organization. He spent numerous hours molding young men to become tomorrows lead ers through the Boy Scout program, said Braford. His work wasnt just here, but in Panama City also and in Pensacola. He had a wealth of information and loved to share it with you if you sat down and asked him questions. Spangenberg, his son, and all six of his grandsons earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor from the Boy Scouts of America. Ted Everett, Executive Director of the Washington County Chamber of Com merce, says Spangenberg will also be re membered for his service to the Chamber, in addition to his county, family and faith. There were no airs about Ted Span genberg, said Everett. He was an inte gral part of the Chamber. Not only was he a loyal member, but also a true leader and a true American. He was one of a kind, and there will never be another like him.

Ideally, we will all take a moment to think of sacri ces made by American service men and women to uphold the liberties we enjoy every day. North Korea, China and Libya are among more than 20 countries under dictatorships. Arguably, the list of those willing to put their lives on the line so the people of those countries may have the right to choose their leaders is considerably shorter than the list of those who have given their lives to protect that freedom for Americans. That thought begs the question: Why do we neglect our right to vote? Voter turnout for Vernons City Election last month was nothing short of apathetic, with only about 10 percent of those eligible to vote in the municipal election casting ballots. Ten percent. That means 90 percent essentially surrendered a precious right protected by our veterans who showed up for them on the battle elds, sacri cing their personal interests for the greater good of this nation and its people. True, Vernon, Chipley, Bonifay and our other local communities are small towns. But our right to vote is a liberty we must not take for granted. Sure, we know the arguments for not voting: What does my vote do, anyway? I dont like either candidate. I already know whos going to win, so why bother? Im so fed up with politicians that Im not giving anyone my support. Its no secret government and politics on all levels have left many of us with a sour taste, but if we dont speak up at the polls, were taking the power completely out of our hands and placing it in theirs. Lobbyists and special interest groups will certainly show up at the polls whether we do or not. We shouldnt let the discouragement and disillusionment many of us currently feel toward some leaders prevent us from making our voices heard at the ballot box. If the powers that be feel were not paying attention, theyre more likely to push their own agendas instead of the desires of the public. Washington and Holmes counties will see several candidates on the ballot for this years primary and general elections. Just as our mothers urged us to eat what was served for supper because children were starving in other countries, we should be grateful our plates are full of opportunities after which citizens of other nations hunger. Dont let our freedom go to waste. Lets get out and vote in every election no matter the appeal of what we nd offered on the plate. CAROL KENT Editor Most of us know someone who has battled depression. Many of us occasionally battle it ourselves. But depression isnt the main topic of this column; its just merely the setting for something so much bigger. Ive been blessed with an area of work that, at times, may show me the darkest side of humanity. But it also shows me humanity at its brightest. Depression is often described as a dark cloud that follows someone, with rare breaks and plenty of rainy days. Id like to tell you two stories of rain Ive encountered that have been followed with rainbows of hope that have touched my life in a profound way. It was rainy days that recently closed down roads and schools in both Washington and Holmes counties, rain that lasted for days. It wasnt until later we learned one of the places hit hardest was the Seacrest Wolf Preserve. The waters swelled the pond in the Arctic enclosure on one end, causing the dam to burst and sending water with such force down the middle that it ripped up the ground, carried off trees and debris and broke the fence on the other side. This is a place that runs off donations and hard work, and founder Cynthia Watkins, as anyone who has ever visited could see, views the animals as her family. Since 1999, shes built the preserve up, only to have almost all of it torn down in just one night. Watkins thought one wolf was lost under the mud and debris and another was stuck outside the gates. After years of trying to build understanding between people and the wolves, I could only imagine how much it hurt to have one of them killed. I cant say what the best call would have been, but I saw how she grieved, with so much sadness and anger that Ive only seen in parents whove lost their children. Through it all, Ive also seen the response of those who came to help rebuild. Ive seen the one they thought was lost returned. Ive seen the way she held the one surviving wolf cub of the one that was shot. She fawned over the cub with so much adoration and pride. I couldnt help but feel the hope for a brighter tomorrow. Holmes County lost an animal lover of its own last week with the sudden death of Wilfredo Morales, owner of Bens Place Animal Rescue in Bonifay. The resulting tragedy was a family without a loved one and so many animals without a guardian, but as I went and visited his family, I found the community was quick to respond, with local animal shelters taking in the animals and eventually all nding a place. I found that even though his widow, Julia, was mourning the death of her beloved husband and closing the shelter, she was also surrounded by family. They werent crying, but celebrating his life, sharing stories and pictures and planning to live out his memory so that Morales will live on in each of them. These are just two in the last couple of weeks where something has happened and yet people have endured and carried on and made the world a brighter place for it. I cant help but to be in awe. No matter how many times I see the kindness of our communities, it still overwhelms me. Seeing that strength and courage gives me encouragement to press on a little harder or let go of those things that tie me down but have no real meaning in my life, like petty disagreements and people who are just honestly having a bad day and struggling with something, too. I believe everyone has their rainclouds, but I also realize we may be the only sunshine they see that day. I encourage at least one smile when you dont feel like it, and if you go through a drive through window, try paying it forward, by paying for the order of the folks behind you. I know when I do it I call it getting my shine on, because it makes me feel so much better, and I hope it makes someones day, too. Thanks again for joining me, and I look forward to next week. Finding that silver lining CECILIA SPEARS Cecilias Sit Down Last weeks article alluded to an upcoming trip to Opp, Alabama on Saturday, May 3, to attend the 8th Annual Lew Childre Memorial Festival. As planned, Max, Julie and I leisurely traveled to Opp arriving in time for the big shows kick-off promptly at 12 noon in the Lurleen B. Wallace Community College Conference Center. The lobby and the walls of the auditorium were adorned with various Lew Childre memorabilia, including numerous pictures from his appearances on Grand Ole Opry Shows. Opp, Alabama is the boyhood home of Lew Childre. He was born there as Lewis Everett (Lew) Childre to Judge C. T. Childre and Ada Atwell Childre on November 1, 1901. He had a brother, Winford and a sister, Opal. In 1923, after completing premed studies at the University of Alabama, Lew Childre joined the Milt Tolbert tent show in North Carolina. He entertained by singing songs that were popular at that time. He also honed his talents as a buck dancer and comedian. Lews rst effort on his own was a jazz band called The Alabama Cotton Pickers. One of his young members was Lawrence Welk, who later became famous as leader of his own band and television show. About 1925, old time music was becoming quite popular. Lew decided to make a change to this type music. He learned to play the guitar using a steel bar. 1929 and 1930 found him working as a soloist artist on radio stations in San Angelo, Texas and Hot Springs, Arkansas. In the 1930s, Lew teamed up with Wiley Walker and they worked together two years billed as the Alabama Boys and Crazy Water Crystal Boys. They did radio work in Galveston, Amarillo and San Antonio. By 1938, Lew began appearing on XERA radio, a border station, and worked with The Prairie Sweetheart, a female group. The entertainer formed a partnership with Floyd and Marge Tillman on WWVA, Wheeling, West Virginia during 1939 and 1940. This allowed him to do personal appearances in Pennsylvania and Ohio where he did the emcee chores. In 1943, Lew had a nationwide show on the Blue Network airing Monday through Saturday and he did three daily broadcast over WAGA in Atlanta. Late in 1944, Cowboy Music World was letting people know that Lew had a show that aired over WSM, Nashville at 6:00 A.M. Monday through Saturday. Lew Childre joined WSMs Grand Ole Opry in 1945. He headlined the Warren Paint segment of the show. He was also heard Monday through Friday at 6:30 A.M. A recording contract with Gannett records allowed him to record such songs as Fishing Blues, Hang Out The Front Door Key, :Riding The Elevated Railway, Alabamy Bound, Nothing But Rain, My Red Haired Lady and When They Baptized Sister Lucy Lee. Lew married Francis Lee Lanier. In retirement, they built a home in Foley, Alabama and established a shing tackle business. Lew invented a new lure, which bore his name. Lew Childre died at age 60 on December 3, 1961 and is buried in Pine Rest Memorial Cemetery in Foley. Lews son, Lewis, Jr, took over the shing tackle business after his fathers death. He had an air strip built in the rear of his home. Sadly, the son crashed his plane on the property on June 26, 1977 and was killed. He was only 47 years old. Family members continued the business until it was sold. The event in Opp on May 3 was backed by a house band to include Wayne Martin on ddle, Jay Newsom on bass guitar and Jimmy Powell on the Steel Guitar. All are well known in this area for their performances at Gilleys Country Opry south of Vernon. Harlan Burton, was the Band Leader and played piano. Jim Hartley played drums and Brian Sterling played guitar. The Lew Childre Celebration Committee Members are Joe Richburg, Chairman. Event Coordinator is Joe Moulton. Other members are Dr. Chuck Burgess, Emilee Gage, Kyle Gantt, Peggy Linton, Allen Miller and Jim Powell. Two special guests for the event were Taylor Weeks, a young musician from Opp and Artie Rodriguez, a Walton County Deputy Sheriff, who is making great strides in his advancement in country music. Thanks to my neighbor, Steve Mason, for recording two old LPs of Lew Childre music to CDs, with one each given to these two performers. Our party heard only performances on the Steel Guitar by Purley Curtis and Joe Wright, who was accompanied by his wife, Connie, on several songs. Before the nal guitarists were presented, the audience welcomed to the stage the featured artist of the day, Stonewall Jackson, of Grand Ole Opry Fame. Before his performance, the Celebration Committee quickly brought forth the 50/50 Tickets sold throughout the day with the explanation that the Sound Technicians would receive half of the proceeds and the lucky ticket holder would receive half. When the ticket was drawn, your writer was shocked beyond belief to have the winning ticket, and hardly before I knew it, was handed a bundle of cash. Then with a roaring welcome, Stonewall Jackson came forward for almost a full hour of beautiful singing of many of his award winning songs as well as adding his own levity to the show with his down home stories of his rise to success. Included in his performance was Dont Be Angry With Me Darling, explaining that he and his brother, Wade Jackson, wrote the song during their tender and exceedingly rough years on their Georgia farm, the place of their upbringing. When the song was to be recorded, he listed the writer as his brother, Wade Jackson, who was then still on the battle eld ghting in World War II. He explained the song is still assisting his brother nancially, who is now aged and in rm and needs the assistance it is bringing. Life To Go, a George Jones composition, also recorded by the artist, was presented at the concert and received a warm response. See you next week, hopefully with a full story on the life and times of Stonewall Jackson. Festival inspired memories of Lew Childre SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Lew Childre as shown in the printed program at Opp.

SPORT S www.chipleypaper.com A Section This space hasnt always been kind to ESPN or the NFL. But for one weekend a year a cease-re is merited. Televising the NFL Draft was the smartest thing either company accomplished since Australian Rules Football went to the TV vault alongside My Mother the Car and the NFL moved the goal posts to the back line of the end zone. Tuning in to Jon Gruden and company is like listening to a TV weatherman tell us what to expect, and nding out 10 minutes later he doesnt know any more about his area of expertise than the rest of us. What can be as refreshing as that? To be sure, the NFL Draft is resplendent with more lame interviews than a seminar on sideline reporting, only this time at least they are conducted with relieved athletes about to become millionaires. Its also a kumbaya convention, has more faux hugs than a beauty pageant and the last time Chris Berman was relevant Blondie was recording No. 1 hits. But if youre a Cleveland Browns fan, you witnessed more drama in less than 2 hours on Thursday night than you saw all last football season. Weve become a culture held hostage by speculation, but for one night a year it ends in resolution within minutes. So much for the mock drafts that ood the Internet starting in March. Theyre as compelling as an Anthony Weiner campaign for dogcatcher. While there was some pleasure watching Johnny Manziel drink water like it was bathtub gin while waiting for his name to be called, the bottom line is that hes soon to sign a contract worth more money than the combined wages of all Minnesota McCanns for eternity. Its also somewhat noteworthy that its common to hear athletes speak of Gods plan in times of crisis. Ive never heard a coach talk about Gods plan upon being hired, but Ive witnessed a few echo that sentiment when red. Perhaps the best moment for many local viewers, however, irrespective of team allegiance, came when Calvin Pryor was taken on the 18th pick by the New York Jets. The Port St. Joe graduate grew up and ourished in our area. That he will have an opportunity to live the good life that professional sports can provide enriches all of us who have followed his career from high school through Louisville. That occurrence was heightened on Friday evening, when Khyri Thornton, who played at Bay High School, went to the Green Bay Packers in the third round. Then there are many college football fans who track the progress of players from their favorite university. That provides a sidelight for those who dont actively follow the NFL. But maybe the best reward from this years collection of talent was that the second round on Friday produced nearly as representative group of future pros as was seen on Thursday night. Not all drafts are created equal. Neither are all television extravaganzas.

It hasnt been coming from Bucks head coach Jeff Patton or the baseball team. At press time, Chipley was set to play at Bozeman at 7 p.m. Tuesday night in the Region 2-1A champi onship game. If Bozeman wins, it would be a third straight region title for the Bucks program. But Chipley plans on stop ping that from happening. The Bucks are 20-7 and the Tigers 21-7, but perhaps more importantly, Chipley is 16-1 at home. Weve built a real good following this season, Ti gers coach Andy Compton said. Its taken awhile. Weve struggled the last few years we were in a district with (Pensacola) Catholic and Bay in a four-year span. This year our fan base really has supported this group. Our guys are condent at home, thats been the fun part about it. I think the home eld does play a little bit into it, but at this point in time when the game starts Im sure both teams will compete very well. Neither Patton nor Compton wanted to tip his hand on a starting pitcher. Patton named Brandon Suttles and Alec Aleywine as possibles. Compton des ignated Jordan Finch or Daniel Floyd. While the schools havent played in recent seasons, the programs have met dur ing summer baseball and its clear that the coaches have a mutual respect for the opposition. They have good pitch ing, have some guys who throw with some velocity and Coach Compton does a good job, Patton said. Whereas Aleywine (.417) and Suttles (.395) have been formidable throughout, Pat ton now has Webb (.323), Nicky Agosto and Thomp son at .301 and Priester at .288, the latter with an RBI surge starting with the dis trict tournament. Special to The News PENSACOLA The Chipola Lady Indians won two and lost two to nish third in the Gulf District bracket of the FCSAA State tournament. Chipola came into the tourney as the third-place team out of the Panhandle but opened play May 3 with a pair of wins over State College of Florida and Hillsborough. Two Chipola players were named to the Gulf District All-Tournament Team: utility player, Ka tie Harrison and catcher, Brashante Dareus. Har rison also was named to the FCSAA All-Tournament team. In Chipolas rst game, Jessica Elliott, had a threehit shutout with eight strikeouts and in a 4-0 win over State College of Florida. In the Lady Indians sec ond game Chipola jumped out to a 6-0 lead over Hill sborough and held on for a 6-4 win. Elliott retired nine of the rst 10 batters. Rosanne de Vries relieved Elliott in the fourth. Chipola opened Satur days action with a 7-5 loss to Tallahassee, the eventu al state champion. Facing elimination, the Lady Indi ans fell to Polk State, 6-4. Tallahassee Community College defeated the Col lege of Central Florida, 4-1, to capture the FCSAA State Championship. Chipola nished its sea son with a record of 34-22. The Lady Indians were the defending FCSAA/Region VIII Champions. In nine seasons at the helm of the program, head coach Belinda Hendrix has won ve Panhandle Conference titles; three state titles: 2007, 2010 and 2013; and a national cham pionship in 2007. She has coached more than 84 AllConference Players and 12 NJCAA All Americans. The program has sent more than 50 players on to fouryear institutions and boasts 99-percent graduation rate. Sports Beat Pat McCann Executive Sports Editor pmccann@pcnh.com Johnny Freefall and the draft hard to beat Special to The News The Vernon Yellow Jack et football team will take the eld for the rst time in 2014 at 6: 30 p.m. tomorrow, May 15, for a controlled scrim mage. Typically deemed the Orange and Blue game, play will be replaced with a scrimmage of offense against defense. With the implementation of an entirely new offense that features a totally new concept for the Jackets, coaches will utilize this night to evaluate how far along the new scheme has progressed. The game will also feature the Vernon Quarterback Club baby back rib sale. Rib slabs can be purchased at the game for $20 beginning at 5 p.m. until the completion of the game. The Jackets will then turn their focus to the spring game next Thurs day night, May 22, at home against Freeport High School. Game time is 6 p.m. due to being held on a school night. The format will be a complete game with the exception of no live kicking. This will be the rst time to see a much im proved and more experi enced Yellow Jacket team that hopes to ride last years success and this years returning experience to a deeper playoff run, says Head Coach Bobby Johns. This years team returns 10 offensive starters and 8 defensive. Along with those returners, several young players from last years squad have really improved and will look to make a huge contribution to this years success. Hopefully, with the maturing of many of last years key contributors, the 2014 installment of the Vernon Yellow Jackets will make this one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory. Among those returning is Austin Brown. Brown has received ten Division 1 scholarship offers so far from the likes of the Univer sity of Wisconsin, Univer sity of South Florida, and Southern Mississippi. Please join us in Ver non this Thursday at 6:30 for the scrimmage, urges Johns. And we need ev eryone at the Jackets Nest next Thursday night as the Jackets face Freeport as well.

Trivia Fun Wilson Casey WC@Trivia Guy.com Girl Scout Troop 408 appeals to public for meeting venue By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com Girl Scouts of the USA was formed more than 100 years ago to nurture young girls through building leadership skills and providing positive adult role models. Troop 408, Chipleys only Girl Scout Troop, wants to continue that tradition of teaching fundamental values and life skills, but theyre reaching out to the community to nd a place to call home twice a month. We are a new troop to Chipley, and we are accepting applications for summer fun, Troop Leader Lauren Fox said. We will be camping, swimming, doing crafts and more, but right now, were looking for a place to have our meetings. Currently, were having them at (my house) every other Tuesday night, but we want to keep (our base) local so that we may be more involved in Chipleys parades and events. So far, Troop 408 has taken part in several projects, including earning patches for conservation, cookie sales and community service. Many more are in the works, including the girls helping out at the Kate Smith Elementary School tent at the upcoming Relay for Life event at Pals Park this weekend. Fox said she already sees the efforts of the newly formed troop paying off and encourages others to join or volunteer. Young ladies who were once shy and timid are now vocal and con dent, Fox said. When you invest in this troop, youre not investing just your time; youre investing in the future of a girl. For more information on Troop 408, call Lauren Fox at 726-6120.

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 As much as you love Fluffy, his constant need to claw your living room sofa isnt exactly desirable. After furnishing your home with numerous scratching posts and still no improvement, you might be asking yourself, what now? As a very last resort, it may be time to consider declawing surgery. A choice not without controversy, the procedure should only be done after careful consideration with all of the facts. When we perform a declaw procedure, we are removing the entire third phalanx of the toe, said Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. So not only the claw that you can see, but the associated bone that attaches to the next bone in the toe. The declawing procedure is controversial in veterinary medicine today, and like any other surgical procedure, there are a number of risks that go along with the purported benets. People have a bad feeling about the procedure because they anthropomorphize to themselves of what it would be like to lose the end of their nger, which would be a big deal for a person, but a cat doesnt need to type or write like we do, Stickney said. They extend those claws when theyre ready to do something destructive or to defend themselves; otherwise, those digits are naturally retracted and unseen. However, you should be aware that once the procedure is completed, your cat will no longer have a way to defend itself from other cats or predators that come into its territory. As a result, the cat will need to be an indoor-only cat for the remainder of its life following the procedure. Because we love our pets so dearly, we want to do all in our power not to inict any unnecessary pain on them. Though the procedure is painful, by using a good multimodal pain control protocol that targets the nervous system at different points in the pain pathway, you can make the procedure as comfortable as possible. For the next 10 days postoperatively, you need to restrict the cats exercise as much as possible, so do not encourage them to run and jump around the house, Stickney said. You also need to use either shredded newspaper or paper towel in their litter box as opposed to gravel based litter that could get into the little incisions before they heal. The decision of whether or not to declaw Fluffy is not one to be taken lightly. However, if his clawing is standing in the way of your companionship and ability to keep him in your family, surgery might be your only hope. If it is an indoor cat only, you have exhausted all other methods of controlling the scratching problem, and its a decision of whether or not youre going to have to get rid of your cat, Stickney said. Then the benets of declawing surgery absolutely outweigh the risks.

Page 4 Wednesday, May 14, 2014 In looking forward to Mothers Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they cleanup are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terric mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none have dirty hands from cleaning up messes. I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions: Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. Politicians ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately... without delay. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is they never stop until the work is nished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. It would be benecial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or ve kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrice himself to benet other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. DR. JAMES L. SNYDER Out to Pastor Why mothers would make good politicians Faith EVENTS

On June 17, 2013, the HCSO received a 911 call from Peacock, who told dispatchers Armstrong had fallen down the front steps of their trailer in the Esto community and landed on his knife, according to the report. Holmes County deputies, along with Holmes County EMS, responded and found Armstrong in the front yard with a severe knife wound to his chest. He was transported to Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Ala., and underwent emergen cy surgery but never re gained consciousness and died from complications a few days later, according to the police report. In vestigators noted several inconsistencies in Pea cock statement and dis covered signs of drug use at the residence. The report indicated investigators were later able to locate a 911 call from Armstrongs cell phone that had been routed to the Jackson County Sheriffs Ofce in which he stated he had been stabbed in the neck. Investigators also were able to locate witnesses who indicat ed Peacock and Armstrong had been arguing that morning, and he was stabbed as a result of the altercation. After a nine-month investigation, a warrant was is sued for the arrest of Peacock on charges of manslaughter. Peacock is currently serving a sentence in the Florida Depart ment of Corrections for neglect of a child, which also stemmed from the incident.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, May 14, 2014he served rst in the Merchant Marines and then in the 71st Infantry and 66th In fantry in the U.S. Armys European The ater of War before receiving an Honorable Discharge. He also received a Purple Heart for his bravery and injuries sustained by shrapnel. The French Government later honored Spangenberg as well, bestowing upon him the French Legion of Honor, the countrys highest honor, for his contribu tions to the liberation of France during that time. Spangenberg went on to work for the Florida Department of Transportation, from which he retired after more than 30 years as District Maintenance Engineer. Spangenberg also served First Baptist Church in Chipley as a Deacon and Trea surer, was a Gideon, and often volunteered his services to Habitat for Humanity. He also volunteered his engineering talents to building construction on the Baptist College of Florida campus in Graceville, served with the Florida Baptist Disaster Relief and American Red Cross organiza tions as a shelter manager, and worked as an engineering consultant for the Fed eral Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Spangenberg will perhaps be best re membered for his service to the Boy Scouts of America, however. Scout Master Daniel Bradford served with Spangenberg in the scout organization. He spent numerous hours molding young men to become tomorrows lead ers through the Boy Scout program, said Braford. His work wasnt just here, but in Panama City also and in Pensacola. He had a wealth of information and loved to share it with you if you sat down and asked him questions. Spangenberg, his son, and all six of his grandsons earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor from the Boy Scouts of America. Ted Everett, Executive Director of the Washington County Chamber of Com merce, says Spangenberg will also be re membered for his service to the Chamber, in addition to his county, family and faith. There were no airs about Ted Span genberg, said Everett. He was an inte gral part of the Chamber. Not only was he a loyal member, but also a true leader and a true American. He was one of a kind, and there will never be another like him. J.D.OWENSINC.CARPET&CERAMICOUTLET YOURHOMETOWNLOWPRICE!CARPET,CERAMIC,PORCELAIN,VINYLTILE, LAMINATE,HARDWOOD&AREARUGSYES!WEDOLAYAWAY!

Ideally, we will all take a moment to think of sacri ces made by American service men and women to uphold the liberties we enjoy every day. North Korea, China and Libya are among more than 20 countries under dictatorships. Arguably, the list of those willing to put their lives on the line so the people of those countries may have the right to choose their leaders is considerably shorter than the list of those who have given their lives to protect that freedom for Americans. That thought begs the question: Why do we neglect our right to vote? Voter turnout for Vernons City Election last month was nothing short of apathetic, with only about 10 percent of those eligible to vote in the municipal election casting ballots. Ten percent. That means 90 percent essentially surrendered a precious right protected by our veterans who showed up for them on the battle elds, sacri cing their personal interests for the greater good of this nation and its people. True, Vernon, Chipley, Bonifay and our other local communities are small towns. But our right to vote is a liberty we must not take for granted. Sure, we know the arguments for not voting: What does my vote do, anyway? I dont like either candidate. I already know whos going to win, so why bother? Im so fed up with politicians that Im not giving anyone my support. Its no secret government and politics on all levels have left many of us with a sour taste, but if we dont speak up at the polls, were taking the power completely out of our hands and placing it in theirs. Lobbyists and special interest groups will certainly show up at the polls whether we do or not. We shouldnt let the discouragement and disillusionment many of us currently feel toward some leaders prevent us from making our voices heard at the ballot box. If the powers that be feel were not paying attention, theyre more likely to push their own agendas instead of the desires of the public. Washington and Holmes counties will see several candidates on the ballot for this years primary and general elections. Just as our mothers urged us to eat what was served for supper because children were starving in other countries, we should be grateful our plates are full of opportunities after which citizens of other nations hunger. Dont let our freedom go to waste. Lets get out and vote in every election no matter the appeal of what we nd offered on the plate. CAROL KENTEditor Most of us know someone who has battled depression. Many of us occasionally battle it ourselves. But depression isnt the main topic of this column; its just merely the setting for something so much bigger. Ive been blessed with an area of work that, at times, may show me the darkest side of humanity. But it also shows me humanity at its brightest. Depression is often described as a dark cloud that follows someone, with rare breaks and plenty of rainy days. Id like to tell you two stories of rain Ive encountered that have been followed with rainbows of hope that have touched my life in a profound way. It was rainy days that recently closed down roads and schools in both Washington and Holmes counties, rain that lasted for days. It wasnt until later we learned one of the places hit hardest was the Seacrest Wolf Preserve. The waters swelled the pond in the Arctic enclosure on one end, causing the dam to burst and sending water with such force down the middle that it ripped up the ground, carried off trees and debris and broke the fence on the other side. This is a place that runs off donations and hard work, and founder Cynthia Watkins, as anyone who has ever visited could see, views the animals as her family. Since 1999, shes built the preserve up, only to have almost all of it torn down in just one night. Watkins thought one wolf was lost under the mud and debris and another was stuck outside the gates. After years of trying to build understanding between people and the wolves, I could only imagine how much it hurt to have one of them killed. I cant say what the best call would have been, but I saw how she grieved, with so much sadness and anger that Ive only seen in parents whove lost their children. Through it all, Ive also seen the response of those who came to help rebuild. Ive seen the one they thought was lost returned. Ive seen the way she held the one surviving wolf cub of the one that was shot. She fawned over the cub with so much adoration and pride. I couldnt help but feel the hope for a brighter tomorrow. Holmes County lost an animal lover of its own last week with the sudden death of Wilfredo Morales, owner of Bens Place Animal Rescue in Bonifay. The resulting tragedy was a family without a loved one and so many animals without a guardian, but as I went and visited his family, I found the community was quick to respond, with local animal shelters taking in the animals and eventually all nding a place. I found that even though his widow, Julia, was mourning the death of her beloved husband and closing the shelter, she was also surrounded by family. They werent crying, but celebrating his life, sharing stories and pictures and planning to live out his memory so that Morales will live on in each of them. These are just two in the last couple of weeks where something has happened and yet people have endured and carried on and made the world a brighter place for it. I cant help but to be in awe. No matter how many times I see the kindness of our communities, it still overwhelms me. Seeing that strength and courage gives me encouragement to press on a little harder or let go of those things that tie me down but have no real meaning in my life, like petty disagreements and people who are just honestly having a bad day and struggling with something, too. I believe everyone has their rainclouds, but I also realize we may be the only sunshine they see that day. I encourage at least one smile when you dont feel like it, and if you go through a drive through window, try paying it forward, by paying for the order of the folks behind you. I know when I do it I call it getting my shine on, because it makes me feel so much better, and I hope it makes someones day, too. Thanks again for joining me, and I look forward to next week.Finding that silver lining CECILIA SPEARSCecilias Sit Down Last weeks article alluded to an upcoming trip to Opp, Alabama on Saturday, May 3, to attend the 8th Annual Lew Childre Memorial Festival. As planned, Max, Julie and I leisurely traveled to Opp arriving in time for the big shows kick-off promptly at 12 noon in the Lurleen B. Wallace Community College Conference Center. The lobby and the walls of the auditorium were adorned with various Lew Childre memorabilia, including numerous pictures from his appearances on Grand Ole Opry Shows. Opp, Alabama is the boyhood home of Lew Childre. He was born there as Lewis Everett (Lew) Childre to Judge C. T. Childre and Ada Atwell Childre on November 1, 1901. He had a brother, Winford and a sister, Opal. In 1923, after completing premed studies at the University of Alabama, Lew Childre joined the Milt Tolbert tent show in North Carolina. He entertained by singing songs that were popular at that time. He also honed his talents as a buck dancer and comedian. Lews rst effort on his own was a jazz band called The Alabama Cotton Pickers. One of his young members was Lawrence Welk, who later became famous as leader of his own band and television show. About 1925, old time music was becoming quite popular. Lew decided to make a change to this type music. He learned to play the guitar using a steel bar. 1929 and 1930 found him working as a soloist artist on radio stations in San Angelo, Texas and Hot Springs, Arkansas. In the 1930s, Lew teamed up with Wiley Walker and they worked together two years billed as the Alabama Boys and Crazy Water Crystal Boys. They did radio work in Galveston, Amarillo and San Antonio. By 1938, Lew began appearing on XERA radio, a border station, and worked with The Prairie Sweetheart, a female group. The entertainer formed a partnership with Floyd and Marge Tillman on WWVA, Wheeling, West Virginia during 1939 and 1940. This allowed him to do personal appearances in Pennsylvania and Ohio where he did the emcee chores. In 1943, Lew had a nationwide show on the Blue Network airing Monday through Saturday and he did three daily broadcast over WAGA in Atlanta. Late in 1944, Cowboy Music World was letting people know that Lew had a show that aired over WSM, Nashville at 6:00 A.M. Monday through Saturday. Lew Childre joined WSMs Grand Ole Opry in 1945. He headlined the Warren Paint segment of the show. He was also heard Monday through Friday at 6:30 A.M. A recording contract with Gannett records allowed him to record such songs as Fishing Blues, Hang Out The Front Door Key, :Riding The Elevated Railway, Alabamy Bound, Nothing But Rain, My Red Haired Lady and When They Baptized Sister Lucy Lee. Lew married Francis Lee Lanier. In retirement, they built a home in Foley, Alabama and established a shing tackle business. Lew invented a new lure, which bore his name. Lew Childre died at age 60 on December 3, 1961 and is buried in Pine Rest Memorial Cemetery in Foley. Lews son, Lewis, Jr, took over the shing tackle business after his fathers death. He had an air strip built in the rear of his home. Sadly, the son crashed his plane on the property on June 26, 1977 and was killed. He was only 47 years old. Family members continued the business until it was sold. The event in Opp on May 3 was backed by a house band to include Wayne Martin on ddle, Jay Newsom on bass guitar and Jimmy Powell on the Steel Guitar. All are well known in this area for their performances at Gilleys Country Opry south of Vernon. Harlan Burton, was the Band Leader and played piano. Jim Hartley played drums and Brian Sterling played guitar. The Lew Childre Celebration Committee Members are Joe Richburg, Chairman. Event Coordinator is Joe Moulton. Other members are Dr. Chuck Burgess, Emilee Gage, Kyle Gantt, Peggy Linton, Allen Miller and Jim Powell. Two special guests for the event were Taylor Weeks, a young musician from Opp and Artie Rodriguez, a Walton County Deputy Sheriff, who is making great strides in his advancement in country music. Thanks to my neighbor, Steve Mason, for recording two old LPs of Lew Childre music to CDs, with one each given to these two performers. Our party heard only performances on the Steel Guitar by Purley Curtis and Joe Wright, who was accompanied by his wife, Connie, on several songs. Before the nal guitarists were presented, the audience welcomed to the stage the featured artist of the day, Stonewall Jackson, of Grand Ole Opry Fame. Before his performance, the Celebration Committee quickly brought forth the 50/50 Tickets sold throughout the day with the explanation that the Sound Technicians would receive half of the proceeds and the lucky ticket holder would receive half. When the ticket was drawn, your writer was shocked beyond belief to have the winning ticket, and hardly before I knew it, was handed a bundle of cash. Then with a roaring welcome, Stonewall Jackson came forward for almost a full hour of beautiful singing of many of his award winning songs as well as adding his own levity to the show with his down home stories of his rise to success. Included in his performance was Dont Be Angry With Me Darling, explaining that he and his brother, Wade Jackson, wrote the song during their tender and exceedingly rough years on their Georgia farm, the place of their upbringing. When the song was to be recorded, he listed the writer as his brother, Wade Jackson, who was then still on the battle eld ghting in World War II. He explained the song is still assisting his brother nancially, who is now aged and in rm and needs the assistance it is bringing. Life To Go, a George Jones composition, also recorded by the artist, was presented at the concert and received a warm response. See you next week, hopefully with a full story on the life and times of Stonewall Jackson. Festival inspired memories of Lew Childre SPECIAL TO THE NEWSLew Childre as shown in the printed program at Opp.

Special to The NewsOn April 28 and 29, more than 2,500 high school and college students from across Florida converged on Pensacola for the 2014 SkillsUSA State Conference, an event that showcases technical skills and leadership abilities in more than 100 competitions, ranging from welding skills to cosmetology talent. Washington-Holmes Technical Center had 30 competitors that qualied to compete at the state level after placing rst or second in the February 5 regional competition. The contests are planned by technical committees made up of representatives of labor and management and are designed to test the skills needed for a successful entry level performance in given occupational elds. Three WHTC students will put their technical programs on the national map this summer. Austin Baxley, High School Welding; Leo Grant, CabinetMaking; and Anthony Smith, Drafting took rst place in their competition and will advance to the national Skills-USA Championships June 23-28 in Kansas City.

Winning the competition not only grants the winners the medals, it shows that they are among the best in the industry. Anthony Smith says that he will take what he learned with him for his career. Its not just the medal, its the experiences you can get and the contacts and people that you meet that can make it all worth it in the end, Smith said. Theyre the best of the best, said Martha Compton, Director of WHTC. SkillsUSA is all about providing the skills to make sure the workforce of the future is highly qualied. But its also about individual pride its also about leadership, poise and work ethic those very necessary employability skills, Compton says. Its about everything that makes America great.

SPORTs S www.chipleypaper.com ASectionThis space hasnt always been kind to ESPN or the NFL. But for one weekend a year a cease-re is merited. Televising the NFL Draft was the smartest thing either company accomplished since Australian Rules Football went to the TV vault alongside My Mother the Car and the NFL moved the goal posts to the back line of the end zone. Tuning in to Jon Gruden and company is like listening to a TV weatherman tell us what to expect, and nding out 10 minutes later he doesnt know any more about his area of expertise than the rest of us. What can be as refreshing as that? To be sure, the NFL Draft is resplendent with more lame interviews than a seminar on sideline reporting, only this time at least they are conducted with relieved athletes about to become millionaires. Its also a kumbaya convention, has more faux hugs than a beauty pageant and the last time Chris Berman was relevant Blondie was recording No. 1 hits. But if youre a Cleveland Browns fan, you witnessed more drama in less than 2 hours on Thursday night than you saw all last football season. Weve become a culture held hostage by speculation, but for one night a year it ends in resolution within minutes. So much for the mock drafts that ood the Internet starting in March. Theyre as compelling as an Anthony Weiner campaign for dogcatcher. While there was some pleasure watching Johnny Manziel drink water like it was bathtub gin while waiting for his name to be called, the bottom line is that hes soon to sign a contract worth more money than the combined wages of all Minnesota McCanns for eternity. Its also somewhat noteworthy that its common to hear athletes speak of Gods plan in times of crisis. Ive never heard a coach talk about Gods plan upon being hired, but Ive witnessed a few echo that sentiment when red. Perhaps the best moment for many local viewers, however, irrespective of team allegiance, came when Calvin Pryor was taken on the 18th pick by the New York Jets. The Port St. Joe graduate grew up and ourished in our area. That he will have an opportunity to live the good life that professional sports can provide enriches all of us who have followed his career from high school through Louisville. That occurrence was heightened on Friday evening, when Khyri Thornton, who played at Bay High School, went to the Green Bay Packers in the third round. Then there are many college football fans who track the progress of players from their favorite university. That provides a sidelight for those who dont actively follow the NFL. But maybe the best reward from this years collection of talent was that the second round on Friday produced nearly as representative group of future pros as was seen on Thursday night. Not all drafts are created equal. Neither are all television extravaganzas. Tolearnhowyoucansupportour communitysuniversity,contact MaryBethLovingoodat(850)770-2108 ormblovingood@pc.fsu.edu.

It hasnt been coming from Bucks head coach Jeff Patton or the baseball team. At press time, Chipley was set to play at Bozeman at 7 p.m. Tuesday night in the Region 2-1A champi onship game. If Bozeman wins, it would be a third straight region title for the Bucks program. But Chipley plans on stop ping that from happening. The Bucks are 20-7 and the Tigers 21-7, but perhaps more importantly, Chipley is 16-1 at home. Weve built a real good following this season, Ti gers coach Andy Compton said. Its taken awhile. Weve struggled the last few years we were in a district with (Pensacola) Catholic and Bay in a four-year span. This year our fan base really has supported this group. Our guys are condent at home, thats been the fun part about it. I think the home eld does play a little bit into it, but at this point in time when the game starts Im sure both teams will compete very well. Neither Patton nor Compton wanted to tip his hand on a starting pitcher. Patton named Brandon Suttles and Alec Aleywine as possibles. Compton des ignated Jordan Finch or Daniel Floyd. While the schools havent played in recent seasons, the programs have met dur ing summer baseball and its clear that the coaches have a mutual respect for the opposition. They have good pitch ing, have some guys who throw with some velocity and Coach Compton does a good job, Patton said. Whereas Aleywine (.417) and Suttles (.395) have been formidable throughout, Pat ton now has Webb (.323), Nicky Agosto and Thomp son at .301 and Priester at .288, the latter with an RBI surge starting with the dis trict tournament. Special to The NewsPENSACOLA The Chipola Lady Indians won two and lost two to nish third in the Gulf District bracket of the FCSAA State tournament. Chipola came into the tourney as the third-place team out of the Panhandle but opened play May 3 with a pair of wins over State College of Florida and Hillsborough. Two Chipola players were named to the Gulf District All-Tournament Team: utility player, Ka tie Harrison and catcher, Brashante Dareus. Har rison also was named to the FCSAA All-Tournament team. In Chipolas rst game, Jessica Elliott, had a threehit shutout with eight strikeouts and in a 4-0 win over State College of Florida. In the Lady Indians sec ond game Chipola jumped out to a 6-0 lead over Hill sborough and held on for a 6-4 win. Elliott retired nine of the rst 10 batters. Rosanne de Vries relieved Elliott in the fourth. Chipola opened Satur days action with a 7-5 loss to Tallahassee, the eventu al state champion. Facing elimination, the Lady Indi ans fell to Polk State, 6-4. Tallahassee Community College defeated the Col lege of Central Florida, 4-1, to capture the FCSAA State Championship. Chipola nished its sea son with a record of 34-22. The Lady Indians were the defending FCSAA/Region VIII Champions. In nine seasons at the helm of the program, head coach Belinda Hendrix has won ve Panhandle Conference titles; three state titles: 2007, 2010 and 2013; and a national cham pionship in 2007. She has coached more than 84 AllConference Players and 12 NJCAA All Americans. The program has sent more than 50 players on to fouryear institutions and boasts 99-percent graduation rate. Sports BeatPat McCannExecutive Sports Editorpmccann@pcnh.comJohnny Freefall and the draft hard to beatSpecial to The NewsThe Vernon Yellow Jack et football team will take the eld for the rst time in 2014 at 6: 30 p.m. tomorrow, May 15, for a controlled scrim mage. Typically deemed the Orange and Blue game, play will be replaced with a scrimmage of offense against defense. With the implementation of an entirely new offense that features a totally new concept for the Jackets, coaches will utilize this night to evaluate how far along the new scheme has progressed. The game will also feature the Vernon Quarterback Club baby back rib sale. Rib slabs can be purchased at the game for $20 beginning at 5 p.m. until the completion of the game. The Jackets will then turn their focus to the spring game next Thurs day night, May 22, at home against Freeport High School. Game time is 6 p.m. due to being held on a school night. The format will be a complete game with the exception of no live kicking. This will be the rst time to see a much im proved and more experi enced Yellow Jacket team that hopes to ride last years success and this years returning experience to a deeper playoff run, says Head Coach Bobby Johns. This years team returns 10 offensive starters and 8 defensive. Along with those returners, several young players from last years squad have really improved and will look to make a huge contribution to this years success. Hopefully, with the maturing of many of last years key contributors, the 2014 installment of the Vernon Yellow Jackets will make this one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory. Among those returning is Austin Brown. Brown has received ten Division 1 scholarship offers so far from the likes of the Univer sity of Wisconsin, Univer sity of South Florida, and Southern Mississippi. Please join us in Ver non this Thursday at 6:30 for the scrimmage, urges Johns. And we need ev eryone at the Jackets Nest next Thursday night as the Jackets face Freeport as well.

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3As much as you love Fluffy, his constant need to claw your living room sofa isnt exactly desirable. After furnishing your home with numerous scratching posts and still no improvement, you might be asking yourself, what now? As a very last resort, it may be time to consider declawing surgery. A choice not without controversy, the procedure should only be done after careful consideration with all of the facts. When we perform a declaw procedure, we are removing the entire third phalanx of the toe, said Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. So not only the claw that you can see, but the associated bone that attaches to the next bone in the toe. The declawing procedure is controversial in veterinary medicine today, and like any other surgical procedure, there are a number of risks that go along with the purported benets. People have a bad feeling about the procedure because they anthropomorphize to themselves of what it would be like to lose the end of their nger, which would be a big deal for a person, but a cat doesnt need to type or write like we do, Stickney said. They extend those claws when theyre ready to do something destructive or to defend themselves; otherwise, those digits are naturally retracted and unseen. However, you should be aware that once the procedure is completed, your cat will no longer have a way to defend itself from other cats or predators that come into its territory. As a result, the cat will need to be an indoor-only cat for the remainder of its life following the procedure. Because we love our pets so dearly, we want to do all in our power not to inict any unnecessary pain on them. Though the procedure is painful, by using a good multimodal pain control protocol that targets the nervous system at different points in the pain pathway, you can make the procedure as comfortable as possible. For the next 10 days postoperatively, you need to restrict the cats exercise as much as possible, so do not encourage them to run and jump around the house, Stickney said. You also need to use either shredded newspaper or paper towel in their litter box as opposed to gravel based litter that could get into the little incisions before they heal. The decision of whether or not to declaw Fluffy is not one to be taken lightly. However, if his clawing is standing in the way of your companionship and ability to keep him in your family, surgery might be your only hope. If it is an indoor cat only, you have exhausted all other methods of controlling the scratching problem, and its a decision of whether or not youre going to have to get rid of your cat, Stickney said. Then the benets of declawing surgery absolutely outweigh the risks.

Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they cleanup are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terric mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none have dirty hands from cleaning up messes. I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions: Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. Politicians ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately... without delay. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is they never stop until the work is nished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. It would be benecial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or ve kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrice himself to benet other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. DrDR. JAmMES L. SNyYDErR Out to PastorWhy mothers would make good politicians Faith EVENTS
