Ted Cooper will likely go down in history as the
favorite coach ever at Blountstown High School
That was definitely the sentiment at an 84th birth-
day parry in his honor at Parramore's Too Monday
where he reunited with some of his former football.
basketball and baseball
players from the 50s and
60s.
"I played for Coach
Cooper as a freshman in
1958," David Pitts
recalled, adding that after .. .. .
college. Coach Cooper
had transferred to
Rutherford High School
and he had the opportun-
ty to intern under him.
"The two men most influ-
ential in my life were
Coach Cooper and Coach
John Tomlinson. You
taught the game of life
and, Coach Cooper. I
thank God He put you in
my life.'"
Other former players
and students some who
drove over from
Carrabelle shared similar


stories of appreciation to their coach.
"You have helped me just as much." a humble ,.
Coach Cooper told the crowd. "You players that

Local



man



drowns



in the


Chipola

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A day of fun in the sun
turned tragic Friday when a
Calhoun County man lost
his life in the Chipola River.
The body of Phillip
Allan Colbert, 44, was
recovered about an hour
and a half after he went
under during a tubing trip.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, Jamie Johns, a pass-
ing boater, told authorities
he was flagged down by two
men on tubes who advised
their friend had fallen off
his tube and was missing.
The men, identified as
James Livingston, 38, and
Chuck Wise, 39, had
reportedly been drinking
with Colbert throughout
the day.
Coy Huckaby of the
Calhoun County Search
and Rescue Team respond-
ed, along with Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission
officers and Lt. Adam Terry
of the Calhoun County
Sheriff's -Office. The men
with Colbert pointed out
where he was at when he
went under and Huckaby,
utilizing scuba gear, was
able to locate Colbert's
body. He was found face
down in approximately 8 to
10 feet of water, just south
of where he was last spot-
ted, about one third of a
mile north of Willis Bridge.
Investigators found no
signs of trauma to the body.
A cabinet maker by
trade, Colbert leaves
behind his father, J. Allen
Stacy, of Altha, along with
two daughters and a grand-
child. His complete obitu-
ary appears on page 10 of
this issue.

our country, when relating
to the so-called separation
between Church and State.
By and of her outstanding
effort, I would like to pres-
ent her with the

Somehow, largely through the Grace of God, devoted loyalty, and
the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
never missed an issue.


work and caring about our
country and its people.
As I read Mr. Davis'
article, I had thought to
myself that I would quickly
respond to his utter non-
sense, but then, I said to
myself, no, we have some
good Pastors, who are bet-
ter read and better
equipped than I to reply.
So, I expected to see in the
following week of The
County Record a scorching
rebuttal from one of our
fine and outstanding Spirit
filled Pastors of the many
Churches in our readership
area, but to no avail; I was
totally disappointed.
Where are God's zeal-
ous and fiery male servants
who would be quick to take
a stand for the "Truth" and
for "Righteous"? This is
one of the problems with
this nation, which has
resulted in our nation slid-
ing into the abyss of wicked
sin and filth of the World. I
grew up in the 1950's and
early 60's when this nation
began its downward slide.
I've watched this nation go
from a God fearing people,
to a nation where they
flaunt their wickedness in
our streets with no shame.
But, thus it is written and
thus shall it be done; the
wicked grow more wickedly
and evil shall increase. We
live in the days of the very
end time. We need men of
God, full of his Spirit to
quickly stand, blow the
trumpet, sound the alarm
and stand firm on God's
Truth.
I have a question for you
Mr. Davis and all those
who are like minded. Just
where will you be, when
the Lord Jesus comes in a
short few years to set up his
1000 year earthly kingdom
and "The Government",
(all Governments) will be
directed from and. by him
and his appointed Saints,
from the city of Jerusalem.
He is going to dictate to all
the governments of the
whole earth as to the rule of
law 'and- governmental
statutes. And guess what,
Mr. Davis, this rule of law
and governance will be
based totally on the Holy
Scriptures. The same Holy
Scriptures that you are
able to pick up and read
today are the same that
will rule over God's
Kingdom for eternity. God,
my Heavenly Father, says
that his "Word" is forever;
he changes not. He has not
changed in eternity past
and he most certainly will
not change his "Word" in
the eternity future. Yes, he
will create a new Heavens
and a new Earth, but his
"Word" will never change.
In regard to the so-
called issue of the separa-
tion of Church and State,
which never existed to
begin with and will never
exist, because God still sits
on his throne. All the gov-
ernments of this world are
due to the direct and indi-
rect hand of the Most High
God of Heaven and Earth.
Apart from God, there has
never been a nation to
exist. What did Jesus tell
Pilate, when he was
brought before him prior to
his crucifixion? The
Roman ruler, (i.e. the gov-
ernment), Pilate. said to
Jesus,' "Why is it that you
will not speak to me, don't
you know that I have the
power to crucify you and
also the power to release
you". And Jesus said to
him, "You could have no
power at all against me,
except t it were given to you
from above. (Dan 4:17, 25,
32, 35 & 5:21)
Mr. Davis and those
who think like you, con-
cerning government, the
State and God's Word, the
Church; there is no grey
area, there is no sitting on
the side lines, no straddling
the fence, no in between,
no third options. Jesus
said, "He that is not with
me is against me: and he


that gathers not with me
scatters".
So, you are either on the
side of evil, the wicked,
deception, lies and Satan's
bidding you will do; or you
are on the side of faith,
good, truth, righteous and
Jesus' bidding you will do.


We are in a battle of "The
War", not "A War", but
"The War" (Dan 9:26).
This is the war and battle
for the souls of people and
the war of Good and Evil.
Like Caleb of old, "As for
me and my house, we will
serve the Lord".
Currently, our nation is
in dire straits, with God's
judgement fast approach-
ing. This nation has been
blessed by God like no
other on earth since the
nation of Israel under the
rule of King Solomon. A
nation that has walked in
God's Word and Righteous
and then they turn away
into following after wicked-
ness; then God says he'll
turn that nation into hell.
(Psa 9:17) Let them that
have ears to hear; then let
them hear. Blessed is the
nation whose God is the
LORD. (Psa 33:12)

In Christ Service,
James R. Manning

To the Editor:
A recent letter to the
editor published in the
May 26th issue of The
County Record presented
commonly held beliefs
about the Separation of
Church and State. This
phrase has been so fre-
quently used that many
people assume it was a
foundational concept of our
founding fathers. It was
not. It does not appear in
the Declaration of
Independence, our
Constitution, or any other
founding document.
Our founding fathers
were extreme advocates of
the inclusion of faith in gov-
ernment. A thorough
review of documents pre-
dating the 1900's clearly
shows our fathers were
adamant that Christian
faith and the Bible be foun-
dations of our society,
including our legal and edu-
cational system.
Founding Fathers can be
defined as those who had a
significant role in the for-
mation of this country.
There were fifty six signers
of the Declaration of


Independence, thirty nine
signers of the Constitution.
and ninety signers of the
Bill of Rights. Over ninety
percent of these men held
strong Christian beliefs.
Many were ministers.
Several started Bible
Societies. Benjamin Rush
a leader in early medicine
and education also started
the first Sunday School.
Did you know that regu-
lar Sunday Christian wor-
ship services were held in
the capitol building for a
hundred years until the
early 1900's?. Did you
know the first meeting of
congress began with a four
hour Bible study and a
prayer meeting and did not
conclude until all delegates
attended a service in a
nearby church? Did you
know that John Jay, the
first Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court, was also
president of the American
Bible Society? Other
Founding fathers were
leaders of Bible Societies
whose mission was to place
the Bible in the hands of
every American. Harvard
University, Princeton and
Yale were founded as
Christian Schools to pre-
pare preachers for Gospel
Ministry.


Did you know the Ten
Commandments remains
etched in stone in many
locations in the Supreme
Court Building? Isn't it
ironic the very branch of
government that has
snuffed out many public
religious expressions is still
surrounded by stone carv-
ings that cannot easily be
removed. In this same
building. Biblical Moses,
the lawgiver, is represent-
ed in a large stone carving
holding two stone tablets.
Tourists who now visit the
Supreme Court Building
are told the numbers 1-10
on the tablets represent the
Bill of Rights, not the Ten
Commandments. This
interpretation is clearly
ridiculous and deliberate
deception.
Our modern concept of
separation of church and
state is a complete reversal
of the original intent. If the
phrase "separation of
church and state" did not
appear in founding docu-
ments, where did it origi-
nate? The phrase "separa-
tion of church and state"
appeared in a letter written
by Thomas Jefferson when
approached by the

Commercial fishing license


renewal period is extended


Gov. Charlie Crist is giv-
ing Florida's commercial
fishermen and seafood
dealers an extra three
months to renew their
licenses this year. The gov-
ernor announced this
action to help reduce finan-
cial hardships Florida's
fishing communities are
experiencing due to the BP
Deepwater Horizon oil spill
in the Gulf of Mexico.
"The commercial fishing
industry needs some time
to regroup because of mis-
perceptions that Florida's
seafood has been affected
by the oil spill," Gov. Crist
said. "Our fishermen con-
tinue to harvest abundant
amounts of. fresh Florida
seafood to supply fish mar-
kets and restaurants for
people to enjoy, and we
want to do whatever we
can to help them continue
to do that."
The Florida Fish and


Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has
issued an order, which
states that wholesale deal-
er, retail dealer and saltwa-
ter products licenses,
endorsements and tags cur-
rently in effect for the
2009-2010 license year are
extended from July 1 until
Sept. 30. This extension
will allow the industry to
harvest, purchase, sell or
transport saltwater prod-
ucts after July 1 this year
with their 2009-2010
licenses until their licenses
are renewed for the 2010-
2011 year or until Sept. 30,
whichever is sooner.
The FWC order, which
can be viewed online at
MyFWC.com/OilSpill,
takes effect at 12:01 a.m.
on July 1 and will remain in
effect through Sept. 30.
The order directs whole-
sale and retail dealers and
all law enforcement officers


to recognize the extension
of the license year for the
effected fishers, and all
other provisions governing
wholesale dealer, retail
dealer and saltwater prod-
ucts licenses, endorsements
and tags in Florida remain
in effect. This order does
not change any other
licensing rules, including
renewal-qualifying periods.
"Gov. Crist's decision to
give Florida's commercial
fishing industry some relief
is a good one," said FWC
Chairman Rodney Barreto.
"We intend to do every-
thing we can to help these
folks weather the damage
being done because of the
oil spill."

Florida's commercial fish-
ing regulations is available

Oil spill forces partial fishing


closure in Escambia County


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), in
coordination with Florida's
Department of
Environmental Protection,
the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services and the
Department of Health,
issued an executive order
to temporarily close a por-
tion of coastal state waters
offshore of Escambia
County to the harvest of
saltwater fish, crabs and
shrimp. The FWC is tak-
ing precautionary actions
regarding harvest and con-
sumption of these marine
species, which may be
affected by oil from the BP
Deepwater Horizon spill in


the Gulf of Mexico.
The closure includes
state waters from the
beaches out 9 nautical
miles into the Gulf from the
Alabama line east to the
Pensacola Beach water
tower. Interior bays and
estuaries remain open to
fishing. This area covers
approximately 23 miles of
Florida's coastline in
Escambia County. where
oil from the Deepwater
Horizon spill is now present
(see map).
Recreational catch-and-
release fishing is still
allowed as long as saltwater
fish are not harvested or
possessed in the closed
area.
Oysters, clams and mus-


sels are not included in the
closure, because they are
not expected to be affected
by oil in the area. The
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services carefully monitors
populations of these shell-
fish.
This order, which
includes specific closure
coordinates, can be viewed
online at MyFWC.com/
OilSpill and takes effect at
12:01 a.m. on Monday,
June 14, and will remain in
effect until repealed,
extended or modified by a
subsequent order. The
order will be enforced by

1lounettown Youth League Program helps landowners


recoup habitat project cost


Meet the AA Crocs
Members of the AA Crocs team in Blountstown's Youth Baseball League include (front
row, from left) Abdul-Wahab Faruqui, Trace Mears, Sterling Miller, Darran Mills, Trace
Home, Jordan Granger, (back row) Coach Gary Shuler, Cole Fielder, Mason Dwiggins,
Michael Maestri, Cade Lawarre, Keagan Yon, and Coach Greg Granger.


Landowners nationwide
have the opportunity to
recoup costs of habitat
improvement on their land
through a recently extend-
ed federal program. The
sign-up period for the
Conservation Stewardship
Program has been extend-
ed through June 25. 2010.
The program, which is
administered by the
Natural Resources
Conservation' Service, was
authorized in the 2008
Farm Bill. The voluntary
program offers payments to
landowners who exercise
quality land stewardship
and want to improve the
effectiveness of their con-
servation efforts.

"This is a tremendous
win-win opportunity for
landowners and wildlife,"
said James Earl Kennamer,
chief conservation officer of
the National Wild Turkey
Federation. "By signing up
for this program, landown-
ers will be able to make
critical habitat improve-
ments, and can then be
reimbursed for expenses.
Improved habitat for
wildlife is very important to
many of our members and
the CSP program is a valu-
able.resource."


Reimbursable expenses
may include land manage-
ment plans completed by
NWTF biologists, and seed
and seedlings purchased
through the NWTF.
CSP pays participants
based on conservation per-
formance the higher the
performance, the higher
the payment. Landowners
get credit both for conser-
vation measures they have
already implemented and
for new measures they
agree to add.
CSP is available to all
landowners, regardless of
operation size, crops pro-
duced or geographic loca-
tion. Eligible lands include
cropland, pastureland,
rangeland, non-industrial
private forest land and agri-
cultural land under the
jurisdiction of a Native
American tribe.
Potential applicants are
encouraged to use the CSP
self-screening checklist to
determine whether CSP is
suitable for their operation.
The checklist, which high-
lights basic information
about CSP eligibility
requirements, contract
obligations and payments,
and additional information
about CSP, may be
obtained from the CSP


website at
www.nrcs.usda.gov/pro-
grams/new_csp/csp.html.
To apply, call or visit a
local USDA Service
Center, listed online at
offices.usda.gov. or in the
telephone book under

Department. For informa-
tion on seed, seedlings or
for habitat plans, landown-
ers can contact their local

The Marianna Mad Dogs survived the 100 degree heat and took home second place in the
Travel Ball USA Watermelon Smash tournament held Saturday, June 12, at the M.E.R.E. Sports
Complex in Marianna. The Mad Dogs fell to the Eastside Bandits 18-0 in the first game and
defeated the Southern Sluggers 11-9 in their second game. The Mad Dogs, seeded #4 going into
the championship rounds, defeated the #1 seed Eastside Bandits 11-9, earning a spot in the final
championship game against the Southern Sluggers. It was 0-0 until the third inning when the
Sluggers scored, making it 1.-0. That score held what seemed like forever, until the Sluggers broke
out with seven runs and the Mad Dogs losing 8-0 and the Sluggers avenging their earlier loss.

Oil spill continued


agencies, and the affected
area will remain closed
until. it is free of visible oil
and testing confirms that
the water and the marine
life in it are once again safe.
Under the order, fisher-
men can transit through the
closed area with saltwater
fish, crabs or shrimp that
were legally harvested out-
side the closed area.
Fishermen doing this are
required to go as directly as
possible from where these
species were legally har-
vested to where the vessel
is regularly docked, moored
or stored, or to the licensed
wholesale dealer where the


catch is to be sold.
"The oil spill in the Gulf
is still far from most of
Florida's vast coastlines,
and while the FWC contin-
ues to carefully track oil
spill developments and pre-
pare for possible impacts,
Florida's abundant saltwa-
ter fisheries remain in good
health and the fish you buy
in a commercial outlet or
restaurant are safe and
wholesome to eat," said
FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto. "The FWC
encourages residentsand
visitors to go fishing in
Florida and to enjoy fresh
Florida seafood."

Gamer Camp provides a
competitive, yet friendly,
environment not unlike
the' interaction they would
have at a sports camp.
Gamers make new friends
by playing with like-mind-
ed kids on a level they don't
get when only playing at
home or online. The bene-
fits of any team based activ-
ity, including debate team,
science fair teams, and oth-
ers, are the same as tradi-
tional sports like football.
Video games simply pro-
vide another medium for
that team experience.
Registration is limited to


the first 20 boys who turn
in a completed application
on a first come, first served
basis. There is no charge
for the camp. Early regis-
tration is encouraged
because of the limited num-
ber of spaces. Lunch will be
provided.

Girl Scouts teaches kids to


be successful entrepreneurs


Every year from
January to March the
streets are buzzing with
Girl Scouts and their cook-
ies. We all have our
favorites from Thin Mints
to Tagalongs and Samoas;
and each year we line up to
get cookies at our local
cookie booth.
What most people do
not -know about the Girl
Scout Cookies program is
that, it is just that: a pro-
gram run by girls for girls.
It turns them into young
entrepreneurs. The girls
are setting goals, managing
money, and working as a
team to achieve an overall
goal. Each year girls have
to create new and innova-
tive ways to help promote
their troops cookie sale,
aside from traditional cook-
ie booths and door to -
door sales. In fact, the Girl
Scout Cookie program pro-
duces more female business
owners than universities.
In a recent New York
Times interview, Barbara
J. Krumsiek, chief execu-
tive and chairwoman of the
Calvert Group Ltd., credits
selling Girl Scout Cookies
as one of her early business
experiences.
"I always vied for the
top selling awards," said
Krumsiek. "I remember
having a troop leader have
confidence in me that I
could go off and lead a
group of girls to start the
campfire or whatever."
The Girl Scout Council
of the Florida Panhandle,
which covers the nineteen
counties of the Florida
Panhandle, had ten girls
sell over 2,000 boxes of
cookies this year. Their
motivation: a new net-book
computer. The top seller,
Julia Filloon, from troop


292 in Tallahassee, FL sold
3,039 boxes; a new person-
al record for the 8th grader.
Julia was not the only top
10 seller in her troop.
Dakota Putnal was 5th in
the overall sales, selling 2,
030 boxes. Both credit
their success to each other
and determination to
achieve their goal.
"Julia's goal was to win
the computer, and so was
mine," said Putnal. "We
were in this together."
Both girls were over-
joyed when awarded their
computers, saying that it
will come in handy going
into the 9th grade.
The ten top sellers
include: Shelby Faul from
troop 349 in Tallahassee
sold 2,068 boxes; Hannah
Noles from troop 178 in
Madison sold 2,061 boxes;
Sha'Asia Williams of troop
558 in Marianna sold
2,120 boxes; Amelia
MacMongal from troop
181 in Panama City sold
2,010 boxes; Tori Meeks
from troop 181 in Panama
City sold 2,002 boxes; Toni
Jones from troop 592 in
Panama City sold 2,001
boxes; Taylor Warren from
troop 592 in Panama City
sold 2,001 boxes; and
Cheyenne Dugas from
troop 1500 in Ft. Walton
Beach in sold 2,000 boxes
of cookies.
"The accomplishments
of these girls demonstrates
how the Girl Scout Cookie
Program creates savvy
business women of the
future," said Raslean M.
Allen, CEO of the Girl
Scout Council of the
Florida Panhandle. "It was
my honor to award these
girls a net-book computer
for their strong commit-
ment to Girl Scouting."

Many prominent men
through the years have
been chosen as "Father
of the Year." Tell me.
how can you select just
one? I see fathers who
make their presence
known from diaper
time to diploma time.
These fathers have
devoted a lifetime to
the needs of their
families. They are loyal
employees or
considerate and
thoughtful employers.
This Father's Day is
the perfect time to
thank your dad for the
important role he has
played in your life.
To all "Fathers of the

you ... HAPPY

"Wake Up America"
series at Gateway
Wake Up America is a
series of messages to be
presented at Gateway
Baptist Church. The series
began Memorial Day
weekend and will continue
to the fourth of July. The
course our country is taking
is unsustainable. We must
wake up and speak up if we
desire to continue to expe-
rience the freedoms and
opportunities America has
enjoyed.


In the early days of this
country, the churches were
a major rallying point.
Many of the framers of the
constitution were ministers.
Almost all were strong
believers in God and the
Bible. Over time, the
rewriting of history books
and the secularization of
our society have eroded
this understanding.
Ministers have been intim-
idated by governmental
threats to church finance
and the perversion of the
concept of "the separation
of church and state". At
Gateway Baptist Church
we refuse to delicately
dance around issues. It's
time to speak clearly.
Messages to be presented
in this series are: Faith of
Our Forefathers, The Bible
and Our Constitution,
Threats to America, Issues
Resulting in God's
Judgement, Our Hope.
Pastor Roger King
invites you to join us for
these Sunday Morning
messages at 11 AM. If you
cannot be with us in per-
son, the service can be
heard on WPHK 102.7
FM. Join us as we raise
our voice to "Wake Up
America"!


It's Vacation Bible School at

Deepwater Horizon recovery:



tips for donors and volunteers


In the wake of any disas-
ter, many reach for their
checkbooks or look for vol-
unteer opportunities. Your
BBB Wise Giving Alliance
cautions, however, that the
oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico is unlike previous
disasters and offers specific
advice to potential donors
and volunteers.
Your BBB recommends
that donors and volunteers
consider the following:
V Beware of well-inten-
tioned but inexperienced
organizations New non-
profits and relief organiza-
tions spring up following
any major disaster. While
these groups might have
the best of intentions, new
charities may lack the
resources, experience and
management needed to be
effective. Ideally, look for
established organizations
with environmental expert-
ise or experience aiding
Gulf communities.
V Understand where
your money is going -
Charities are assisting in a
number of areas including
shoreline rescue and pro-
tection, needs assessment,
litigation, economic relief,
advocacy for new govern-
mental energy policies and
research into long-term
solutions to minimize
effects of future disasters.
Ask whether the organiza-
tion will restrict your dona-
tion for a specific program,
for use only in its Gulf-
related activities or for gen-
eral support for all of its
programs.
V Rely on expert opin-
ion when it comes to evalu-
ating a charity Be cau-
tious when relying on third-
party recommendations
posted on blogs or websites,
as the authors might not
have fully researched the
organizations they list.
Start with www.bbb.org
/charity to research chari-
ties to verify that they are'
accredited by the BBB and
meet BBB's 20 Standards
for Charity Accountability.
V Ask if the charity is
doing Gulf-related work or
raising funds for other Gulf
relief organizations If a


charity is raising money for
other groups. you may con-
sider "avoiding the middle-
man" and giving directly to
those performing the work.
Research ultimate recipi-
ents of donations to ensure
the organizations are
equipped to do the job
you're supporting and are
aware of the individual or
organization soliciting on its
behalf.
V Volunteering for Gulf
clean-up may require spe-
cial skills or training -
Learn what qualifications
are necessary before setting
off for the site. If you're
looking to get your hands
dirty. you're out of luck
unless you're certified to
handle hazardous materials
or have received training to
care for injured wildlife. In
fact, Gulf residents are
being told not to handle any
tar balls that wash up on
the beach or animals that
might be affected by the
spill. Other volunteer
opportunities are available
and charities with volun-
teer programs ask that you


register with them so that
they can assess your skills
and place you appropriate-
ly.
V There will be many
opportunities to give, so
keep checking The Gulf
region will be suffering from
the effects of the oil spill for
years to come and, as the
situation unfolds, there will
be more opportunities for
donors to help in the future.
If you can't find a cause you
can get behind right now,
plan to revisit the possibili-
ty of making a donation or
volunteering in the months
to come.
BBB Wise Giving
Alliance has compiled a list
of nationally soliciting char-
ities which meet BBB stan-
dards that are asking for
donations and volunteers
for the Gulf effort. For addi-
tional information and to
find charity evaluations,

The County Record, JI'.iI 16, 2010, Page 14


Letters cont'd-


Danbury Baptist
Association of Danbury.
Connecticut. In October
1801 they sent a letter to
President Thomas Jefferson
expressing their concern for
protection of religion. On
October 7, 1801 Jefferson
responded with a letter
assuring them that because
of the wall of separation,
they need not fear govern-
ment interference with reli-.
gious expressions. In his let-
ter Jefferson made it clear
that the "wall of separa-
tion"was not erected to
limit public religious
expressions but rather to
provide security against
governmental interference
with religious expressions,
whether public or private.
Years later in
1878, in the case of
Reynolds vs United States,
the Supreme Court cited
Jefferson's letter, noting
Jefferson's view that the
federal government was not
to interfere with religious
expressions or values,
except in a very narrow cat-
egory. Later cases defined
these categories as "reli-
gious" acts such as human
sacrifice, concubinage,
incest, polygamy, injury to
children, etc.. In tradition-
al religious practices like
public prayer, the use of
scriptures, the government
was never to interfere.
What happened?
Things changed drasticly in
1947 in Everson v. Board of
Education. Here for the
first time the Supreme
Court interpreted
Jefferson's "separation"
phrase as requiring the fed-
eral government to remove
religious expressions from
the public arena. This
1947 rogue court was the
first to remove Jefferson's
separation of church and
state phrase from it's con-
text and apply it in' a man-
ner opposite to Jefferson's
clear intent. They cited no
precedents whereas the
Court in the previous
Reynolds case cited over 80
precedents supporting their
unanimous decision. The
interpretation of five men
became law for the majority
of Americans who would
strongly disagree with their
interpretation.
This was the beginning
of a long slippery, slope.
This handful of foolish
supreme court justices
ignored previous court
precedents and the founda-
tion that founding fathers
had carefully written into
our founding documents.
The courts' interpretation
set in motion a trend that
continues to this day.
Liberal, atheistic views pre-
vail. The God of the Bible
we once worshiped as God
of this nation is no longer
officially recognized, hon-
ored and respected in the
eyes of the court. Prayer
and Bible reading were sys-
tematically removed from
schools, moral issues
became subjective to man's
opinion, and moral stan-
dards became cloudy.
On the surface these
decisions may seem
insignificant but the conse-
quences are huge.
Education excellence and
SAT test scores began to
decline. Crime increased
and more prisons were
built. Problems developed
on every side. Moral and
ethical issues arise without
answers. Sound judgement
and common sense is lost.
Today our national debt is
clearly out of control and
our government continues
to run at full speed over the
edge of the cliff making
promises that will be impos-
sible to keep. Our children
and grandchildren will be
greatly affected..
Our forefathers knew
the importance of the one
book our society has reject-
ed. The Bible they upheld
says very clearly, "The fool
has said in his heart, there
is no God". But foolish ide-
ology continues to prevail in


our government, education-
al system and society. We
are reaping the conse-
quences. I dare you to read
Romans 1:21-32 in that
book that has been banned
from our public schools. It
presents a very accurate
picture of recent develop-
ments in America, includ-
ing dramatic increases in

homosexuality, sexual
promiscuity, violent crime.
disrespect of parents and
many other trends.
Is there hope? I believe
there is hope. The sleeping
majority of America must
wake up. speak up and
sound the alarm. But the
answer is not educational,
financial or political. We
must return to the God of
our fathers. Our courts
may never return to a prop-
er understanding and expe-
rience of the separation of
Church and state, but no
one can prevent personal
awakening and renewal in
our hearts. America has
experienced a "Great
Awakening" in the past. I
believe a similar revival is
coming to America in our
generation. It is my great
desire to see a great awak-
ening in Blountstown.. It is
time to Wake Up America!
Most of the supporting
information and specific
cases cited in this letter are

invited to attend. Another

and inspirational series is
being considered at a time
other than Sunday evening.

dare to read Romans 1:21-
32 considering America
today.

BY PAUL McAULIFFE
Contract Administrator

If you travel the state
highways of Bay or
Calhoun counties, you'll
see them.
, First you'll spot the
white King Cab pickup
with the Goodwill logo
and flashing yellow light,
flatbed trailer in tow.
Then you'll spot the
"Mule" off-road vehicles
with their own flashing
lights, moving rapidly
back and forth on the
roadside shoulders.
There'll be two workers
in bright safety vests for
each Mule, trash pickers
in hand, leaning out of
the Mules and making
.short '.:ork of roadside
debris. Or, you'll see them
beside the King Cab
muscling heavier items
Into the truck.


These are the hard-
working members of
Goodwill-Big Bend's con-
tract crew, doing their
best to keep Florida
beautiful.

Starting this past
January, Goodwill-Big
Bend, in partnership with
Respect of Florida, began
a one-year contract with
the Florida Department
of Transportation (DOT).
Their mission is to pick
up litter on selected state
highways and to mow the
grass around DOT hold-
nmg ponds. DOT hkes the
contract crew's work so
much that they've
already approved the
contract for 2011 and
gave them a second con-
tract. adding more high-
ways to the Iist. This
additional contract v.i ll
alloy. Goodwill to hire


many more workers and
at least one additional
supervisor.
Stan Womble,
Goodwill Big Bend's
Director of Contract
Services, set up the pro-
gram and successfully
negotiated the deal with
DOT. He hand-picked his
two crew supervisors,
Jason Ferguson and
Kasey Wilson. Jason is in
charge of the mowing and
Kasey directs the road-
side litter crew.
Jason and Kasey's
workers are individuals
v. ith disabilities who have
proven themselves able
to do the physical labor
required. It's hard. hot
and sweaty work. The lit-
ter crew has to hustle to
keep ahead of the DOT
mowers. They use plenty
of mosquito repellant,
and keep a sharp eye out


for poison ivy, snakes,
and that most dangerous
critter of all: Text-
Messaging Drivers. The
workers have to be con-
stantly aware of fast-mov-
ing highway traffic as
they roam the roadsides
and center medians.
"Safety first" is their
motto.

The contract employ-
ees take great pride in
what they do. The mis-
sion of Goodwill-Big
Bend is to provide
employment to people
with disabilities and other
barriers to employment.
helping them to reach
their fullest potential in
supporting themselves
and their families.
The contract program
is a part of the ongoing
fulfillment of that mis-
sion.
