Identity of Bonifay chief candidates released

Esto celebrates

New Year and


new arrival

crches and residents
were celebrating New
Year's Eve the evening
of Dec. 31; even Esto's
First Baptist Church
had a large turn out for
their complementary
fireworks and food. Ve-
hicles filled every avail-
able parking space and
lined the streets within
a three-block radius.
Even with fun and
festivities, the church's
leader, the Rev. Ryan
Begue, was unable to
attend because of the
impending arrival of a
new family member. His
wife went into labor the
previous day and the
church members, along
with other members of
the community, were
waiting to hear word of
their newest member.

With 12

names on

the list,


are still

being taken

Staff Writer
BONIFAY The number of candidates applying for
the position of Bonifay chief of police is 12, and there
is still a chance of more applications being turned into
Bonifay Mayor James "Eddie" Sims, Jr.
Names of those who have returned applications were
released Monday by Sims, who said that other candidates
could still turn in applications before the Jan. 12 deadline.
The position came open in December when Bonifay
Police Chief Ronnie Bennett resigned after Councilman
Richard Woodham motioned for an announcement ac-
cepting applications for the position of chief of police

due to poor performance.
Woodham motioned for a set date for applications to
be accepted and a date set for recommendations to be
made by a board after their review, and Councilwoman
Joann Foxworth seconded the motion.
Councilmembers began the voting with Sims voting
"no" before Bennett stopped them and announced that
he was resigning.
The council accepted Bennett's resignation and ap-
proved applications for the position be accepted until
Jan. 12.
Applications may be mailed to: Bonifay City Hall c/
o Mayor James E. Sims, Jr.; 301 N. Etheridge Street;


Brown: Drugs a top priority

Managing Editor
BONIFAY New Holmes County
Sheriff Tim Brown is making drug
enforcement a top priority for his of-
fice. Brown discussed plans for his
administration in an interview af-
ter he was sworn in Tuesday in the
BOCC meeting room.
Brown joined Circuit Court Clerk
Cody Taylor, Tax Collector Harry Bell
Jr., Property Appraiser Otis Corbin
and Supervisor of Elections Debbie
Wilcox Morris in being sworn in by
County Judge Owen Powell. Taylor
was sworn in by his son, Zachary
Taylor, Esq.
Brown brought former Chipley
Police Dept. Investigator John Brax-
ton Jr. in as chief deputy based in
large part on Braxton's consider-
able experience in investigating
drug cases. "We want to stay on top
there," Brown said.
Brown also announced that former
Chipley Police Chief Ronnie Bennett
would be lieutenant over road depu-
ties. Former Washington County Chief
Deputy James Barnes would be cap-
tain and jail supervisor, as well as pro-
viding his knowledge from many years
in law enforcement. Sgt. Steve Gecko
will return to the department.
"You always want to surround
yourself with good people," Brown
said. Most of the department will re-

main in service, he said.
Brown also thanked outgoing
Sheriff Dennis Lee and his staff for
helping with the transition. "The
transition went well," Brown said.
"I appreciate how Dennis opened
doors and made it easy for me."
Brown said he and the depart-
ment would waste no time getting
active. The new sheriff said they

planned "to slide right in" and go
to work immediately. One thing he
plans to do is make the department
more visible to the public.
"We want to get out and about,"
Brown said. "We want them to re-
alize they own the department and
that we work for them."

"There was, however,
smoke and heat damage
throughout the house. The

fire was ruled by the state

The occupants were

alerted by smoke detec-
tors and escaped the home
through a window. "Gritney

like to use this unfortunate
incident to remind people

Hall said that smoke
detectors have a life span
of about 10 years, and bat-
teries should be replaced
twice a year. "Families

Helms selected as band master

The son of Jimmie and Faye
Helms, of Bonifay, Sean M. Helms,
has reached the pinnacle of his en-
listed career in the Marine Corps
having recently been selected as the
band master for the Quantico Marine
Corps Band. With his recent selec-
tion/promotion to master sergeant,
his responsibilities will be far great-
er than ever before. His career has
guided him as the enlisted conductor
to now, where he will be overseeing
all facets of musicality, profession-
alism and troop welfare, as well as
supervising of all internal billets and
acting as the liaison to all requests
throughout a rigorous schedule of
300 performances annually.
On June 11, 1990, Private Helms
enlisted in the Marine Corps. He
attended recruit training at MCRD
Parris Island, S.C., and combat train-
ing at Camp Geiger, N.C. In October
1990, Helms reported to the Armed
Forces School of Music in Little
Creek, Va., as a basic student.
First stationed with MCRD Par-
ris Island, Helms served as trom-
bone player and attained the rank of
corporal. In April 1994, he was trans-
ferred to Okinawa, Japan, where he
spent two years and attained the rank
of sergeant in June 1994. During
his tour, he attended the Sergeants
Helms returned to the Armed
Forces School of Music in June 1996
as a small unit leader student. After
graduating from the section leaders
course six months later, he reported
to Camp Lejuene for duty with the 2nd
Marine Division Band. While at Camp
Lejuene, Sgt. Helms served as the
platoon sergeant for one year before
leaving the Marine Corps to attend
Chipola Junior College in Marianna.
Helms returned to the Marine
Corps in September 1999 and re-
ceived accompanied orders to Oki-
nawa, Japan. During his three year
stay in Japan, Helms served as the

bean iv\. nelms

platoon sergeant.
In August 2001, Helms reported to
Marine Band Quantico in Quantico,
Va. In February 2003, Staff Sergeant
Helms was selected as an enlisted
conductor. Shortly thereafter, he re-
ported to the Combat Center Band in
Twentynine Palms, Calif., where he
served as the enlisted conductor. He
was later reassigned as the band
master in September 2004. Gy. Sgt.
Helms was promoted to his current
rank in April 2004.
Helms was awarded first place

as the first year competitor and fifth
bronze medal at the Far East Division
Championship Rifle Competition. He
also was awarded the M-1 Garrand
trophy rifle by the secretary of the
Navy. Personal awards include the
Navy-Marine Corps Commendation
Medal with Bronze Star; Navy-Ma-
rine Corps Achievement Medal; and
Good Conduct Medal, fifth award.
He will be promoted to master
sergeant in March of this year and
remain in Quantico, Va., with his wife,
Jill, of Bonifay, and family.

Dreaming of

heavy machinery

When I was in elementary school, I had an odd re-
curring dream. The dream always began with me and
my family, and also one of my friends. Each time I had
the dream, the friend role was played by someone dif-
My dream was set in the desert. We
were all alone, isolated from any civi-
S lization, and all we had to protect our-
selves from the elements was a run
down shack. Most of the dream took
Place around this shack, as it was the
only stationary construction in my
ANDREW Then on the horizon, there appeared
HOLLINGER miles and miles of bulldozers, too many
One Word to count. They were side by side, roll-
ing in our direction. It was clear to me
that the bulldozers intended to run over both us and
the shack. It was my job (and only my job) to figure out
how to escape from the impending doom.
Occasionally, one of the other people that appeared
in my dream would offer me a suggestion. But their
suggestions never worked. I knew that I had to discov-
er the solution myself.
Wait, it gets weirder.
If the bulldozers got too close to the shack, I could
simply wish them back a couple of miles. This gave me
more time to try to come up with the answer. Through-
out the course of a night, I would wish back the bulldoz-
ers several times.
One night, I remember trying to use my ability to
wish the bulldozers back to my advantage. I thought
that we could start walking parallel to the line of dozers
and eventually reach the end. If the machines got too
close, I'd wish them back again. That plan didn't work,
the bulldozers circumnavigated the globe. The solution
would need to be cleverer, and less obvious than that,
or so I thought.
I had this dream over and over again. I could never
find the answer. All I had at my disposal was my ability
to give myself more time to think and keep my family
and friends from getting squashed.
Everything changed for me one day in third grade.
I had been having the dream more often, and I really
needed to find the answer. I was standing in the lunch
line with my buddies Troy and Justin, and I confided
every detail of the dream.
When I finished explaining my dilemma, Troy looked
at me and asked, "Why don't you just wish for the bull-
dozers to disappear?"
That was it. I knew that was the answer. It was so
obvious, right there at my fingertips, and I never fig-
ured it out. At that point, I had the answer, and I could
not wait to have my dream again.
But I never had the dream again.
I never got the opportunity to try out the solution.
That's how I know that I had found the real answer. It
has been over fifteen years since I've had my bulldozer
I have no idea what the dream meant. I know that I
had to discover the solution, but I couldn't. That's why
it's been fifteen years and the dream is still with me.
Finding the solution was my job but my friend had the
This dream was the first time I learned that you
can't always do everything yourself. It is okay to use
your resources, and it is just fine to get help. And I
think that's an important lesson to learn.

Is Obama a natural-born citizen?

LIMA, Ohio The most underre-
ported story of 2008 has to be the
continuing saga of a few brave souls
who are working through the courts
to force President-
elect Barack Obama
to prove his citizen-
This lack of cov-
erage is just the lat-
'- est example of why
I have mostly lost
hope for the main-
OPINION stream media in the
Ray Lucente United States.
Thanks to the
lack of media coverage, many of you
reading this may be unaware of the
multitude of lawsuits challenging
Obama's citizenship and his legal
right to be president.
The Framers, when putting to-
gether our Constitution, inserted
Article 2, Section 1, Clause 4, which
tells us. "No Person except a natural
born Citizen ... shall be eligible to
the Office of President." The same
clause prevents Austrian-born Cali-
fornia Gov. Arnold A. Schwarzeneg-
ger from being president.
There have been at least 17 law-
suits filed in state and federal courts
alleging that Obama does not meet
the constitutional requirement of
being a natural-born citizen.
The lawsuits filed all have vary-
ing theories on Obama's citizenship,
including that he was not born in
the United States, that he became
a citizen of Indonesia when he was
adopted, or that he had dual citizen-
ship at birth, which means he was
not a natural-born citizen.
The lawsuit with which I am most
familiar was filed in a federal court
in Pennsylvania by Philip Berg, a

That lawsuit alleges that Obama
was born in Mombasa, Kenya. Berg
says he has a recording of Obama's
grandmother, Sarah Obama, saying
she was present when Obama was
born in Kenya.
Berg further claims that Obama
himself and other members of his
family have made conflicting state-
ments as to where he was actually
born. Additionally, Kenyan officials
have said Obama was born in Ke-
Much of the controversy sur-
rounds Obama's birth certificate.
The state of Hawaii has refused to
release the long-form or "vault"
copy of the birth certificate. Obama
has also refused to release the long-
form copy.
Back in June, the campaign
did release a short-form certifi-
cate, which is a certificate created
by Hawaii that says the long-form
certificate is on file. However, ac-
cording to Berg, the campaign only
released the short-form certificate
to The Daily Kos, a left-wing blog,
and FactCheck.org, a pro-Obama
organization. Additionally, Berg has
called the short-form certificate a
Berg brought the case to the U.S.
Supreme Court and was initially de-
nied by Justices David Souter and
Anthony Kennedy before submit-
ting his petition to Justice Antonin
The Supreme Court has sched-
uled two conferences on the case,
one for Friday and a second one for
Jan. 16, four days before Obama will
take office.
I do not know if Obama is a natu-
ral-born citizen. My instincts tell

me that it would have been difficult
for him to hide that fact for so long.
However, citizenship law can be
very murky and Obama's reticence
on the matter is disturbing.
The whole controversy might be
nothing more than a crazy conspir-
acy theory. Then again, it might be a
valid argument.
The whole matter could easily be
settled by the state of Hawaii releas-
ing the long-form certificate, some-
thing the Supreme Court can force
if it accepts the case for arguments.
There is much at stake here. This
is a serious constitutional question.
If we find out later that Obama was
not a natural-born citizen, then ev-
erything he did as president, trea-
ties, laws, executive orders, etc.,
would be invalid.
The candidates spent more than
$1 billion and two years vying for
the job. Would it not make sense to
give lawyers an afternoon arguing
the issue in front of the Supreme
Court? That is the least we could do
to make sure the person taking the
oath of office actually meets the re-

ing less.

Keep it clean or at least uncluttered

The Orange County Register

President-elect Barack Obama
is reportedly committed to signing a
massive "stimulus" plan of govern-
ment spending some estimates are
as high as $850 billion almost as
soon as he takes office January 20.
Yet even as committed a proponent
of government spending as the key
to a healthy economy as Vice Presi-
dent-elect Joe Biden has expressed
the fear that the package will be
"Christmas-treed" with all sorts of
special-interest projects more suited
to buying votes than to creating jobs
or repairing infrastructure. The U.S.
Conference of Mayors has presented
a $73-billion wish list to Congress
heavy on amenities like sports parks
and light on fixing bridges or expand-
ing roadways.
The fear is certainly well-founded.
Just last September, the price of pass-
ing the $700 billion financial stimulus
package that has so far done little
or nothing to spur economic activity
(and whose details are still hidden
behind a veil of secrecy) was almost
$150 billion worth of pork-barrel proj-
ects calculated more to pad congres-
sional reelection margins than to add
economic value. Congress being Con-

gress... well, you know.
Alice Rivlin, who was President
Clinton's budget director, has sug-
gested quick approval of a smaller
package that would inject money into
the economy quickly, such as aid to the
states in meeting the expanding costs
of Medicaid and welfare, additional
unemployment insurance, reductions
in tax withholding and perhaps even
a payroll tax holiday. She supports
more infrastructure spending but
notes that such spending takes time
to trickle down to ordinary folks and
should be well-designed rather than
slapped together quickly.
That would certainly be prefer-
able to a massive pork-laden pack-
age. But it ignores the fact that any
government spending must come
either from taxing productive activity,
borrowing, or printing money. None
of these is economically sustainable
over the long haul. The only way to
increase real wealth in a country is
through private, profit-making eco-
nomic activity that builds capital that
can be invested in further economi-
cally productive activity. Real stimu-
lus should encourage such activity.
If the new president really wants
to encourage sustainable growth, he
would start by looking to public-pri-
vate partnerships for infrastructure,

then expand his thinking to the loos-
ening of regulatory strictures that
have deterred capital investment.
The Sarbanes-Oxley accounting reg-
ulations, for example, have not only
added to the cost of doing business
while doing little or nothing to pre-
vent fraud (hello, Mr. Madoff), they
have virtually destroyed the creation
of new companies. Repealing or sus-
pending them would liberate billions
in venture capital.
Eliminating or suspending the
CAFE fuel efficiency regulations
would do more to help Detroit than a
brace of bailouts. Reducing the capi-
tal gains tax would encourage entre-
preneurship. Building truck lanes
(for which private companies might
even pay) would increase efficiency
and reduce distribution costs.
We don't expect Mr. Obama to em-
brace such measures. But while he is
struggling with Congress to keep his
stimulus package from becoming too
pork-laden, he would benefit from re-
membering the real sources of wealth
and considering how the dead hand of
government keeps them imprisoned.
That would be change we could be-
lieve in, and a better anti-poverty pro-
gram than yet another government
training program divorced from the
real needs of the marketplace.

A new year perspective on my old pet peeves

Mostly I write on topics I suspect
concern a wide enough audience.
Columnists don't just write on any-

thing that pops into their
minds but need to do a bit
of service to reader-clients.
But, if one has a regular
venue for one's columns, it
maybe fine, now and then, to
indulge oneself with a topic
or two that's more personal.
Even these will, of course,
aim to please, if only by invit-
ing readers to know a bit of
the writer.



In that spirit, I am going to take
the risky step of laying out some of
my pet peeves as we close out one
year and begin another anew. These
are not the most serious complaints
I have about culture, politics, reli-
gion and other human institutions.
Individualists like me will fully ac-
cept that some stuff is strictly per-
sonal, amounts to likes or dislikes
and implies nothing about what oth-
ers ought to feel, do or pursue.
Take my favorite color, for an ex-
ample. I am nuts about red-orange,
the color of the California poppy and
the old Mustang and the setting sun
over the Pacific. Yes, this is the op-
posite of a pet peeve, more of a pet
love. It is, however, exactly personal

and idiosyncratic.
What about a genuine pet peeve,
then? Well, heavy bangs would serve
as a good case in point. Can-
not stand them even if the
face is gorgeous in all other
respects. Somehow these
bangs even suggest some-
thing more generally puz-
zling -- why would some-
one wish to hide a forehead?
Is there some message afoot
ACHAN in that, like, "I don't like my
ion brain?" No, need not be, but
it's somewhat intimated, at
least for me.
Pointless jargon, the sort that
reeks of having been manufac-
tured despite there being no need
for it. I am nearly paranoid about
this some folks write, it seems,
to prevent their being understood.
Again, I could be wrong, but I am
awfully suspicious. (I guess one rea-
son is that escaping into jargon is
a temptation of writers when their
ideas aren't clear enough to them,
but admitting this isn't cool.) At
times it appears evident that some
of the most erudite folks, highly
praised scientists from prestigious
institutions, will succumb to this
temptation, at least in regions of
their discipline they are still con-

fused about.
Cops who swagger really put me
off, and this includes nearly all those
out there enforcing the rules of the
road. Frankly, I don't even regard
these people as police officers or of-
ficers of the law because rules of the
road, however necessary, are just
that, rules of the road, just a step or
several above rules of attire at some
private school. Yes, yes, the rules
sort of aim at orderliness and even
safety, but more often they appear to
aim solely at revenue generation. I
suppose this pet peeve stems in part
from my near-anarchism, my fierce
resentment of all those who lord it
over other people who are carrying
on in mostly peaceful ways.
I won't go into the types of driving
that I despise. It would fill a book.
But here is at least a small sample
of what I just happen to like and dis-
like. It may say a bit about me, for
better or for worse.

Old-time hog killing, a cold-weather tradition for the entire community

With cold weather, another
regular event on the farm was
hog killing. Cold was required to
keep the meat from spoil-
ing, make it crisp enough
to cut up, and to keep
the flies away. With us
it was more than an an-
nual event because Dad-
dy butchered and sold
fresh pork on his route to
Panama City in the cool HAPPY
months, but there was HazelV
usually one big hog kill-
ing day when meat, lard,
and sausage were prepared and
stored for the year ahead.
Preparation took place well
in advance as hogs for butcher-
ing were separated from the
herd and kept penned up. Then
the neighbors had to be notified.
As no telephones existed, a trip
around the countryside in the
pickup ensued. Some of the peo-
ple who helped us were Claude
and Verdie, Estelle, and Preston
Hewett, Mat and L.C. Broxton,
Grandma and Grandpa Wells,
and various other neighbors and
The many chores needed to
be done the day before. Daddy
made sure all butcher knives
and the meat cleaver and saw



were sharp. Grandpa Jim Harris
was the expert at that, but Uncle
Edward Harris and Uncle Ar-
chie Harris also inherited
the talent. Jim and Perry
foraged the woods and
brought bear grass for
hanging the hams, shoul-
ders, sausage etc.
They also brought
up wood for cooking out
ORNER the lard. Plenty of stove
Is Tison wood had to be split and
brought in to keep plenty
of hot water for wash-
ing the endless pans, knives
and buckets as well as for cook-
ing the sumptuous meal. Mama
pulled and washed a ton of turnip
greens, and sent me or Minnie to
the potato bank to rake back the
straw and select a peck or so of
sweet potatoes to be washed in
readiness for the next day.
The day started early with
the filling of the "syrup kettle"
with water. It was permanently
mounted across the road in a sort
of natural gully. It was a five-foot
wide round iron bowl that had
formerly been used in the syrup
making, but not in my lifetime.
Grandpa usually brought up the
ground slide to transport the
tubs of water across to the vat.

Shelby Barber or Arthie Harris,
my uncle were the fire builders.
While the fire was getting to
the right temperature, just before
the boiling point, Daddy would
go out with the rifle and Minnie,
Mama and I would cringe as we
heard the crack of the rifle and
the quick squeal of the first hog.
After that, things got so busy, we
didn't even notice subsequent
crack and squeal signals.
By the time the water was
hot, the other helpers would be-
gin arriving. The men hoisted
the shoat into the vat, turning
continually and checking to see
when the hair would scrape off
easily. Care must be taken that
the carcass wasn't left too long
or flesh would come off with the
hair and if it wasn't long enough,
the hair wouldn't scrape off. Slits
were cut in the leg tendons of the
hind legs, and a gantling stick
inserted to facilitate the mov-
ing and hanging of the pork. It
was first laid out of the kettle on
boards and the men scraped all
the hair off.
The disemboweling came
next. A very sharp pocketknife
was needed here. The warm
entrails were caught in a large
bucket and rushed to the back

yard where the women and girls
were waiting. We separated the
heart, liver, lights (lungs) from
the intestines, being very care-
ful not to burst the gall sac, and
sent these parts to the kitchen
where preparations for the din-
ner to feed the crew was already
underway. Mama made hasslet
from these parts, not one of my
favorite foods.
The large intestines and small
intestines were tied off with rags
and then severed from the stom-
ach. Some of the crew might want
to take the large intestines (chit-
lins) and the stomach (maw), but
the back yard crew, working over
a pit that had been dug for that
purpose, began "ridding" the
small intestines for sausage cas-
ings. My job was pouring water
as Verdie or Mat held them over
the pit dug for that purpose. Then
they laid them out on a table and
scraped them gently so as not
to tear. As you can be sure, this
was the smelliest job of all, but it
didn't deter us from enjoying the
meal that was being prepared.
There would be "back strap"
(loin) fried crisp, rice, turnips
seasoned with some backbone,
hasslet, baked sweet potatoes,
corn bread, biscuits and plenty

of homemade syrup and fig pre-
While some of the help were
still scalding, scraping and gut-
ting, other helpers, including
Daddy, were cutting the carcass
into hams, shoulders, loin, bacon
sides, etcIt was rubbed with salt
and hung in the smoke house.
The fat was laid aside and cut
into small chunks for render-
ing into lard. The ladies helped
with that after the chitlins were
cleaned. Some of the lean meat
with some fat was also cut into
chunks for sausage.
Long after the crew had gone
home with their shoulder, chit-
lins, liver or whatever they took,
we still worked into the night ren-
dering lard, pouring it into five-
gallon tin cans. We also ground
the sausage meat by a hand-
turned grinder; seasoning it with
just the right amount of salt, pep-
per and sage, and then stuffing it
into the prepared casings. What
we did that with was called a lard
press, but I never saw it used for
anything but sausage.
After all that, there were still
greasy pans and knives to wash
and put away. You can bet we all
slept soundly after a day of hog

gers came to Bonifay Saturday
night and came away with a pa-
per-thin win, beating the host
Blue Devils 56-55.
The Tigers started fast with
an 14-8 first-quarter lead before
the Blue Devils stormed back
behind four second-quarter three

pointers to tie it at 27-all at the
half. The teams swapped three
throughout the third quarter with
a layup off a steal by Aaron Mol-
lett and two free throws by Jer-
emy McGowan to give Holmes
County a 41-39 lead going into the
fourth quarter.
Neither team could break
away down the stretch with Mc-
Gowan's two free throws giving
the Blue Devils a 55-54 lead with
14.6 seconds left. That lead didn't

hold as Graceville's Byron Laster
went down the middle for a layup
with 6 seconds left. McGowan had
a chance as the clock ran down,
but tough Tiger defense gave the
visitors the win.

White also was concerned
about his team's "mental mis-
takes,' including "throwing the
ball away with three seconds
left," and lack of experience, with
just one senior starter.

Craig Myrick led Graceville
with 19 points, and Laster had 14.
Gritty Justin Miles had 8 points.

SLOCOMB, Ala. The Chipley
Tigers boys and the Bethlehem
Tiger girls invaded Slocomb,
Ala., on Friday night and came
away with close wins over the
determined host Red Tops.
The Tigers were ahead just
41-38 at the half as the 10-3 Red
Tops stayed close. In the end,
the Tigers won largely on three-
pointers, hitting 11 overall.
The Tigers were led by A.J.
Roulhac with 25 points (five
threes). Leon Broxton scored 24
(three treys), and Merkeith Bell
scored three three-pointers for
nine points.
Clay Holmes led Slocomb
with 15 points, while Chase
Merritt tallied 14, Jermaine Wil-
liams scored 12 and Lee Merritt
added 10 points.
The Bethlehem Lady Wild-
cats came from behind Friday
night to beat host Slocomb, 57-
56. The Lady Wildcats trailed
at halftime 28-22 in the "border
war" game against their Ala-
bama rivals.
Bethlehem came back to take

the lead in the third quarter 40-
37 on Jennifer Hatcher's three
pointer and extended their lead
to 46-42 going into the fourth
quarter on treys by Hatcher and
Tara Thompson.
The Lady Wildcats looked to
be in control with 5:02 left wirth
a 54-46 lead, but the Lady Red
Tops chipped away to get as
close as 54-53 before Thompson
made a layup, and Megan Mc-
Donald hit a free throw to pro-
vide just enough of a margin to
overcome a three by Slocomb's
Kenzlie Reese in the waning
moments of the game.
"It wasn't a pretty win, but
we'll take it on the road," said
Bethlehem Coach Joanie Al-
bury. She called the second half
"one of the best we have played"
and said although the players
took the holidays off and were a
little rusty, they came back for
the win.
Hatcher led Bethlehem with
20 points, with 18 in the second
half. McDonald had 17, with 10
in the second half. Thompson
scored 11.

during funeral

at about 11 a.m., the Jack-
son County Sheriff's Of-
fice received information
pertaining to a shooting
on Dyke's Cemetery Road,
north of Grand Ridge.
According to the press
release, a deputy was es-
corting a funeral proces-

him. This person said that
his 39-year-old brother,

New year time for reflection

If there is any time of year when
folks slow down a bit and do some
reflecting, I think New Year's tops the
list. I have found myself looking
back on what has been and
thinking about what's ahead.
2008 wasn't the best year
for our family. Foremost is
the memory of losing my dad,
"Granddaddy G." Then there
was the loss of little Maddie,
our family dog of more than
14 years. I'm sure I could BRYAN (
brainstorm other events that Freedom N
were discouraging or stressful,
but that would simply be
searching in a glass that is half-empty.
Though I lost my dad, I gained a son-
in-law. He's a great guy and truly adores
our daughter. My wife and I have even
babysat the "grand dogs" on occasion.
How nice it has been to have puppy
companionship back in our home.
What about you and your family?
Have you set some goals as mom or dad
for 2009? That can certainly be a good


thing. But first, you might want to take
a few minutes and reflect upon 2008.
It isn't my intent for parents to
spend time dwelling on the
cup of parenting blunders,
pouring in a teaspoon of guilt
and stirring well. What I am
encouraging parents to do is
take a little time for honest
reflection in order to avoid
repeating past mistakes.
That way, wiser and more
EESON experienced decision making
sService will be in order in 2009.
Life's ups and downs might
come without warning, but it's
all about perspective, as well as being
thankful for others in our lives.
Take time to reflect on your job as a
parent, and have a Happy New Year!

Bryan Greeson, a nationally
certified school psychologist residing
in Gastonia, N.C., will answer your
parenting questions. E-mail him at

Get ready for the switch to digital television

Welcome, fellow Geeks, to
2009! For this first
column of the year,
I'd like to break from
answering questions to
talk about the biggest
single technology story
that has come along
in recent memory:
the switch to digital
television, or DTV For
those of you who have IT'
been living under some
sort of technology

news-filtering rock for the past
few years, you need to know
that we're rapidly approaching

a watershed moment in the

Jeff Werner

evolution of broadcast
After being talked
about for many years,
digital TV will go online
in the United States
on Feb. 18, and the old
analog signals that have
been in use since the
late 1940s will cease.
Most times, when
changes like this
are made, they are

backward-compatible. For
example, old black and white
TVs still worked after the switch

to color. However, the change
to DTV is NOT backward-
compatible, and analog tuner
TVs that are used to pick up
over-the-air television will cease
to function on Feb. 18 unless you
take steps to prepare.
If you have a TV aerial on
your house, or use a set of rabbit
ears on top of your TV that
includes you. However, if you're
like me, you probably have other
TVs that you don't use day-to-
day that also will be affected,
such as a portable TV or the
park, or a battery-powered TV
in your hurricane kit.

So, you may be wondering,
does that make these older
TVs just so much worthless
electronic junk after Feb. 18?
No. There are converter boxes
available that sit between the
antenna and the TV that will
tune the digital broadcast and
convert it into a format an old
TV can view, exactly the same
way a cable box tunes channels
your TV can't. These boxes are
widely available online and in
local electronics retailers for
around $40.
However, if you act fast, you
can get one free. The federal

government has made available
a number of coupons, good for
$40 toward the purchase of
a DTV converter box. There
are a limited number of these
coupons left, so you'll want to
try and get yours right away.
Visit www.DTV2009.gov, or
call 888-388-2009. With a little
planning, you'll be ready for the
big switch!

Inventory Time: what have you accomplished in the past year?

Another year has come
and gone, God has now
blessed us with the great
privilege of seeing the
beginning of a new year.
2009 "AC" "In the Year of
Our Lord" is now here.
By the way, isn't it great
how that after all the fuss
about using the word
"Christmas" when refer-
ring to largest celebrated
holiday of the year, and a
day which according to
the media, our economy
could not survive with-
out. Yet, a week later the
world celebrates that Je-
sus Christ was virgin born
and that His life, death
and resurrection changed
history and the calendar
as we know it, on New
Year's Day.
As we celebrate that
God has given us an-
other year to share His
love with others, it is
also a great time to take
inventory and see what
we accomplished last
year, so that we can see
where we can do better
in the year ahead. Will
we carry a lot of baggage
that should have already

been taken care
of and turned in to
positive memories
and support for the
future? Will we en-
ter it with regrets
and baggage that
will ruin the New FRO
Year even before it HI
begins? Or will we Ti
enter the New Year
excited about our
walk with our Lord, and
love that we share with
friends and family?
We know according to
Job 16:19 there is a record
of every moment we live
recorded in Heaven. But
do we really need to wait
till we get there to see
how we have done? Even
though a business may
keep good records of all
that they do, the records
are useless unless they
stop at some point and
evaluate themselves. So
each year, most success-
ful businesses will take in-
ventory. Because it helps
them know what they are
to pay taxes on. But it
also becomes a checklist
to see if they are actually
successful at what they



have set out to do.
A good inventory
will help them see
in which areas of
their business that
they have accom-
plished their goal
THE and where they
RT have failed. A good
Hall inventory will put a
spotlight on areas
that need immedi-
ate attention.
Inventory to a business
is equivalent to an annual
physical checkup for our
health. It's a time to look
for problems before it's
too late or too far gone.
Most churches even do
annual reports once a
year for the same reason.
If businesses, churches
and our bodies need an-
nual checkups, why not
our homes and ourselves,
do we need personal and
spiritual checkups? I
think so.
Before I could even
start to inventory my
home, to see if it is ac-
complishing what a home
should do, I must first
inventory myself, to see if
I am accomplishing that

which I should accom-
plish. A home is a place
where an individual or
many individuals dwell
together in a harmonious
atmosphere. It's a dwell-
ing where each person in-
volved feels safe, comfort-
able and accepted by all, a
home which honors God.
When taking inventory
of my home, the greatest
detail I feel that should be
searched out is whether
or not that our home is
accomplishing that which
I feel that it should, and
that it would be consid-
ered a Christian home
(A home in which Christ
would be delighted to
live). By the way, pictures
of Christ, the crucifix,
Bibles placed around the
house, or Madonna and
angel statuettes sitting
around a house does not
make it a Christian home.
Personally I have been
in homes where there
where many of these little
idol-ettes placed through
out the house but yet no
sign that His love abides
in the home and I have
been in many homes

where I saw no idol-ettes,
yet I felt the presence of
His love shared through
out the house by the con-
versations, the respect
and serving attitude of
each family member. You
see, that which makes a
home a Christian home
are the people who live in
the house. That's why the
inventory must begin with
you and me.
As the Bible teaches,
we need to judge our-
selves (1 Corinthians
11:27-32). In other words,
step outside of yourself
and take a good look at
you. When you do, you will
probably find the person
whom you are looking at
needs a lot of improve-
ments. If you don't,
there's another, much
more serious problem
within your home and you
definitely need to open
your Bible. A Christian
home begins with me
first, having a personal re-
lationship with Christ. Be-
cause of that relationship
that I have, my home be-
comes a place of prayer,
openly and privately.

Private prayers because
He is my best friend, Lord
and Savior and He is the
head of the house. Open
prayers because we are
not ashamed that He is
part of our family, thus He
is included in everything.
After taking inventory,
hopefully we will find that
our home is accomplish-
ing that which we have
set out to accomplish, a
home where "Love" Him-
self dwells within us. It is
my goal as I, or whoever
else may take inventory
of our home, that every-
one will discover that it
is a home where Christ
lives. That it will be very
evident, not because of
pictures, but because of
the person and people He
dwells within.

Disguised blessings: Finding the bright side in every situation

There is a place where
modern technological
conveniences go to die.
My place. During the past
week alone we have sent
our van's fuel pump to
the automotive afterlife,
our washing machine to
laundry Valhalla and our
home computer through
those big Windows in the
sky. They join the lifeless
metallic bodies of our
dishwasher, our micro-
wave oven and our food
processor, all of which
have given up the elec-
tronic ghost during the
last few months. If there
were laws against appli-
ance abuse, I'd be public
enemy number one.
Thankfully, we do
better with living things
-- not counting household
plants, flowers, grass and
tomatoes. Our five chil-
dren somehow manage
to survive -- even thrive
-- despite all the bad feng
shui and negative karma.
They are all healthy, hap-
py and well adjusted, give
or take the occasional dra-
ma major. And that, after
all, is what really matters.
At least, that's what my

wife Anita said.
"This is just stuff,"
she said soothingly, reas-
suringly, as I wrote out
a check to cover the in-
stallation of the new fuel
pump. "Yes it is," I said,
my fingers still trembling.
"Very expensive stuff. Do
you realize that this fuel
pump is costing me more
than the
first car I bought?" She
smiled playfully. "What
a blessing!" she said. I
looked at her
curiously. "A blessing?" I
asked. "We just spent an
entire freelance check on
a fuel pump, and you think
it's a blessing?"
"Uh-huh," she said.
"What a blessing that we
had the money to cover
it!" She had a valid point --
as usual. But I couldn't let
her win this easily. "What
about losing the wash-
ing machine at the same
time?" I asked. "Was that
a blessing, too?" "Sure,"
she said. "My brother
feels good about letting
us use his machine, and
I'm able to spend a little
more time with him and
his family while I wash

our clothes at his
house. And I'm
really going to ap-
preciate our new
washer when we
get it." She was
good. No question
about it.
Twenty-three years LET
of living with me LIGH
had given her plen- We
ty of experience at
searching for silver lin-
ings. But I knew I had her
with the last one.
"And what about our
computer melt-down?" I
asked. "What's the bless-
ing in that?" A worried
look crossed her face.
This was tough, no ques-
tion about it. It's like they
say: everyone makes mis-
takes, but it takes a com-
puter to really foul things
up. Then, suddenly, she
brightened. "You're not
staying up so late work-
ing on the computer," she
said, "so you're getting a
lot more sleep! That's a
good thing, isn't it?" She
had me there. I had actu-
ally noticed how much
better I had been feeling
the past few days, and had
already attributed it to

es W

getting more sleep.
"OK, I give up -
you win!" I said.
"But how do you
do that?" "Do
what?" "You know
--what you're do-
ing," I said. "Find-
OUR ing the blessing in
SHINE the curse." "Oh,
Nebb that," she said. "It
isn't hard, really.
The blessing is always
there -- somewhere. You
just have to look for it.
Sometimes you have to
look pretty hard. But it's
there." Even at my place.
The previous was writ-
ten by Joseph B. Walker
and makes an important
observation. The Lord
has truly blessed all of us
with blessings. The great-
est blessing that we could
ever be given by anyone,
God gave us in His Son.
"Blessed be the God and
Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who has blessed us
with every spiritual bless-
ing in the heavenly places
in Christ, just as He chose
us in Him before the foun-
dation of the world, that
we should be holy and
without blame before Him

in love"(Ephesians 1:3-4
"No one can serve two
masters; for either he will
hate the one and love the
other, or else he will be
loyal to the one and de-
spise the other. You cannot
serve God and mammon.
"Therefore I say to you, do
not worry about your life,
what you will eat or what
you will drink; nor about
your body, what you will
put on. Is not life more
than food and the body
more than clothing? "Look
at the birds of the air, for
they neither sow nor reap
nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father
feeds them. Are you not
of more value than they?
"Which of you by worry-
ing can add one cubit to
his stature? "So why do
you worry about clothing?
Consider the lilies of the
field, how they grow: they
neither toil nor spin; "and
yet I say to you that even
Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one
of these. "Now if God so
clothes the grass of the
field, which today is, and
tomorrow is thrown into

the oven, will He not much
more clothe you, O you of
little faith? "Therefore do
not worry, saying, 'What
shall we eat?' or'What
shall we drink?' or 'What
shall we wear?' "For after
all these things the Gen-
tiles seek. For your heav-
enly Father knows that you
need all these things. "But
seek first the kingdom of
God and His righteous-
ness, and all these things
shall be added to you.
"Therefore do not worry
about tomorrow, for tomor-
row will worry about its
own things. Sufficient for
the day is its own trouble."
(Matthew 6:24-34 NKJ) Let
us all quit worrying about
the things that we cannot
change, and start concen-
trating on spiritual lives
that we can change. This
New Year as you begin to
make your resolutions,
make resolution number
one to strengthen your
relationship with God!

The mouth of the
righteous speaks
wisdom, and his tongue
talks ofjustice.

New K.J.V. Psalm 37:30

The Bible tells us,"a good tree does
not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad
tree bear good fruit. For every tree
is known by its own fruit" Also,"A
good man out of the good treasure
of his heart brings forth good; and
an evil man out of the evil treasure
of his heart brings forth evil."(Luke
6:43-45) Obviously, these verses
are asking us to consider what type
of fruit we bear when we are deal-
ing with others. Just as every tree
is known by its own fruit, likewise
we are known by our actions and
our character. When we are inter-
acting with others, we should be
harvesting good will and friend-
ship by respecting the feelings of
others. And, we should constantly
try to represent a reflection of
God's love in a civilized and kindly
manner.Always trying to treat oth-
ers as we would like to be treated
is a good guide that will help us to
be a better person. Surely, being
congenial and kind to others is not
always easy, and at times can even
be quite challenging. For example,
sometimes people with whom we
are dealing may be having a bad
day, or they may have problems
that we are unaware of; however,
we should not allow another per-
son's poor actions to negatively
affect our behavior.

County Council on Aging and
AARP are co-sponsoring a
mature driving class from 8
a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9.
The course will be held at
the Wausau Masonic Lodge in
This eight-hour course was
developed especially for the
senior driver. It is geared
to senior safety needs and
helping compensate for age-
related changes. The National
Safety Council course reviews
basic driving knowledge, new
traffic laws and introduces
techniques to help offset the
effects of the aging process on
driver performance.
This course is approved by
the DHSMV for a three-year
insurance premium reduction.
Course fee is $12 for AARP
members and $14 for non-
members. There is no testing.
