BONIFAY Bonifay City
Council had the final read-
ing of the new curfew or-
dinance during their reg-
ularly scheduled meeting
Monday evening.
"Hopefully this is a step
in the right direction to
stop the vandalizing of our
city," said Mayor Eddie
Sims. "And this ordinance
becomes effective imme-
diately; as in tonight."
Ordinance 363, desig-
nated the juvenile curfew
ordinance, was read by
City Clerk Jeri Gibson.
"It is the intent of the
City Council of Bonifay,
Florida to protect minors
in this city from harm and
victimization, to promote
the safety and well-be-
ing of minors in this city,
to reduce the crime and
violence committed by


minors in this city and
to adopt a local juvenile
curfew ordinance by in-
corporating by reference
the previsions of Florida
Statutes," said Gibson.
"This ordinance shall be-
come effective immedi-
ately upon its adoption in
the manner and form pre-
scribed by law."
The Council discussed
the progress of the new
skate park and agreed to
make plans for a grand
opening.
"It'll not only celebrate
the grand opening of the
skate park, it'll give us a
chance to set the ground
rules for the park," said
Council Member Richard
Woodham.
One aspect discussed
was the placing of signs
restricting those 17 and
under from entering if
they do not have permis-
sion from their parents to
use the skate park.


such as "Happy Hour,"
and "Beer is Here."
"From what I under-
stood from the last meet-
ing, they said they were
going to be discrete about
it," said Foxworth. "That's
not exactly being discrete;
it's giving our downtown a
bad image."
Woodham brought up
the signs themselves as
being cumbersome.
"That sign being on the
sidewalk like that leaves
very little walking room
for pedestrians," said
Woodham.
Sims said that he would
speak with the owner be-
fore any further action
should be discussed.
The Council approved
of city crant-writer Bob
Jones' request to apply
for a larger Community
Development Block Grant
with a larger portion be-
ing paid by the grant and
a lower interest rate.


The signs in front of the Townhouse Restaurant were
a subject at the Bonifay City Council meeting.


Details for admittance
and the grand opening of
the skate park are under
way and will be updated
as more information is
given.


Council member JoAnn
Foxworth brought up the
signs placed in front of the
Townhouse Restaurant,
indicating alcoholic bev-
erages inside with slogans

Effective July 1, there was a statewide
increase in court fines and fees.
"All the increase in fees and fines go the
state to fund the judicial system and our
other trust funds," said Holmes County
Clerk of Court Cody Taylor. "None of which
goes to support the clerk's office or the
state attorney."
Taylor described it as an "attempt by
the legislature" to create "a stable funding
source for the judiciary system."
The only decrease, he said, was the
land lord/tenant eviction fee, which was
reduced from $370 to $270.
"It increased and there was such an
outcry against it that the fee was actu-
ally reduced back to its original price," he
said.
Washington County Clerk of Court Lin-
da Cook said that even though the money
is being sent to the state, it is the state that
pays them now.

The report on the findings
of the State Attorney's off~iee
on Glen Zanetic online and in
the Washington County News
drew a considerable amount
of response. Here are some
samples. ..
GLEN
Now, I wonder how long it
will be before the County returns the
funding and the truck they stole from
them? Time for the BOCC to do some
back peddling.
Terminix

Maybe Herbert, Hagan, and Holley
need to take action like apologizing
to the SHVFD. If any of them had a
brain it wouldn't have been sent to the
State Attorney in the first place.
let me see

The SA report states that
Commissioner Strickland was
involved with all this but the article in
the paper doesn't mention him. Why
would a commissioner that hasn't
been involved with anything in Sunny
Hills except the tax league members
be interviewed by the SA? This is the
same guy that tried to fire the chief


that doesn't even work
County. Tell me this ha
been a personal vender


The SHVFD had a
groups do fund raiser
them and got about $4


for the These same individuals along
sn't with Commissioner Strickland's
tta. support have filed numerous ethics
question complaints against Zanetic and
others and have launched multiple
couple State Attorney investigations.
s for The findings are always the same,
:,000. "They aren't doing anything
ed a wrong". Instead of leaving it alone
ley this group just keeps harassing
people. Then the group proclaims
p files they are just looking after your
up tax dollars. Who do you think
is paying for all their little
ns and investigations?
;on Fed Up
againstt
On behalf of myself and the
Enough members of Sunny Hills, we thank
you Glen, for the hard work and
with sacrifice that you and your family
need have suffered at the hands of these
sident angry, egotistical people. I hope
u are that this will be the end to all of the
orney's false accusations so that we can pull
the community together and work
is job. I towards a great tomorrow. We have
r Glen a very bright future and are glad
:hat that you will be here to protect the
community


The rescue of the little pot-bellied pig that was
captured in Chipley recently drew a number of
responses. ..

It's nice to hear that piglet that was both chased by
hunting dogs and tased by Chipley Police now has a
great home at CJ Acres. Sometimes God intervenes
to protect even the tiniest of his creatures and
provides them with a "heaven on earth" place like CJ
Acres Animal Rescue Farm. Great going guys!

The piggy is safe and well at CJ Acres hurray!
What a lovely ending to this story! And it's nice to
hear some GOOD news for a change!

About 700 people signed

going to learn that we like our
department and the way it rut

their own personal vendetta a

Well if you are not satisfied ~
the State Attorney maybe you 1
to go to the Governor, and Pree
and who knows who else. If yor
not satisfied with the State Atte
findings then maybe the State
Attorney needs to relinquish hi
think it would be a good idea fo
Hess to investigate the group t
stirs all of this stuff up.


Dea dtr
I burning question
in today's world to me is
what is fair love or gov-
ernment why I ask that
question is for people like
myself who are on retire-
ment or disablement who
don't pay federal tax dol-
lars are exempt in any
of the government's bail
out. If you are a first time
home buyer or if you had
sold your house and it's
been I believe three years
in can qualified you can
get 8,000 dollars to buy a
house and now it's Cash
for Clunkers if you own an
old car the government
will give you money to buy
a new car.
Just a short time
back there was one if
you bought a Hybrid car
the government will give
you I think 4,000 dollars
back and then there was
the one if you would buy
hurricane shutters to
help lower the cost of
homeowners insurance
they would of gave you
5,000 dollars for that.
Well the problem is, we
the people who don't pay
federal income tax cannot
get any of these great
deals from the Federal
Government. Now I know
I pay a lot of state taxes
the only one federal tax
I know I pay is on gasoline


an a ter ast y ar payin
up to four dollars a gallon
on gas how much federal
tax did I pay. It's not like
I want to file a 1040 and
ask for reimbursements
for Medical bills for if it
wasn't for VA. Medicare
and Medicaid I would not
have insurance or it would
cost me so much I could
not afford having health
Insurance.
I have try to put a
bug in my local federal
government's ear without
nobody doing or saying
nothing but we will tell the
congressman or senator. I
was not drafted Ijoin the
military in peacetime. I
did not ask to go to war; I
went for that was my job.
I didn't ask to get injured
or disabled, that just
happened. I didn't ask to
be retired and to collect
a pension I thank the
government for that for
I know I cannot work but
at least let me get some
of the benefits of what the
normal person gets. The
only bad news I was told
also was that anybody who
received the 250 dollars
this year from the Obama
Administration will not
get a C.O.L.A. raise for at
lease two years but that
has not been verified.
Ed word 5. Elder
Chipley


By THOMAS J. LUCENTE Jr.
The Lima News
LIMA, Ohio Here we go again.
Police arrested a black man and
it must be because of his race.
Give me a break.
It has nothing to with race.
That is life in America today.
If you don't behave docile and
submissive to police officers'
regardless of whether the cops are
right or wrong, you are likely to
find yourself arrested or beaten.
Police officers don't care what race
you are, only that you don't have a
bage so you must e guily
This time, however, the black
man in question was a friend of
President Barack Obama so it has
garnered national attention.
In case you missed it, police
officers in Cambridge, Mass., went
to the home of professor Henry
Louis Gates Jr., director of the
W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African
and African American Research
at Harvard, early the afternoon of
July 16 on a report of a break-in.
Apparently, the 58-year-old
Gates had a problem getting into
his house so he kicked in his door.
When police tried to question Gates,
the esteemed professor accused the
officers of targeting him because
"I'm a black man in America."
Gates, according to the police
report, yelled at the investigating
officer repeatedly inside the home
and then followed the officer
outside, where Gates continued to
upbraid him.
"It was at that time that I
informed Professor Gates that he
was under arrest," the officer wrote
in the report.
Officers charged Gates with
disorderly conduct, booked him into
the jail and released him after a few
hours in police custody. Officials


eventually dropped the charges.
The police sergeant who made the
arrest has refused to apologize and,
of course, no one has even asked
Gates to apologize.
In this case, both Gates and the
police officers share the blame.
Someone saw someone else
breaking into a home and did the
right thing by calling the police.
That was where the right behavior
ended.
Gates should have remained
calm, presented his identification
and thanked the officers for their
quick response time in protecting
his home. Instead, he decided
to play that well-worn race card
and accused the officers of racial
profiling.
And he is an educated man?
The officers, however, after
ascertaining his identity, should
have left instead of trying to
argue with him. They could have
easily walked away while he was
blathering like an idiot about racial
profiling. But they wouldn't do that.
Seriously, Gates was not
disturbing the peace. He was
yelling at a police officer on his own
property. The problem ends when
the officer leaves.
However, the stupidity didn't end
there.
On Wednesday, Obama had to
open his big mouth and further the
idea that this was somehow race
related.
When asked about the incident
involving his friend, Obama said,
"I think it's fair to say, No. 1, any
of us would be pretty angry; No. 2,
that the Cambridge police acted
stupidly in arresting somebody
when there was already proof
that they were in their own home;
and, No. 3, what I think we know
separate and apart from this


incident is that there's a long
history in this country of African-
Americans and Latinos being
stopped by law enforcement
disproportionately. That's just a
fact."
Well, I think it's fair to say
that No. 1, most of us would have
cooperated with the police without
accusing them of being racists; No.
2, Gates acted stupidly for yelling
at police officers checking on the
security of his home; and, No. 3,
Gates was not pulled over because
he was black, the police were called
to his home because he was spotted
breaking into it.
Obama missed an opportunity to
denounce the aggressive manner in
which police officers today, thanks
to 40 years of the drug war, deal
with citizens. Instead, he resorted
to the tired and dangerous rhetoric
of race.
"I am standing here as testimony
to the progress that's been made.
And yet the fact of the matter is ...
this still haunts us," Obama said.
Wrong.
What haunts us are people in
positions of power who exacerbate
the problem and continue to
divide the nation along racial lines
whenever a black man in America
is wronged.

Commentary by JENNY 50KOL
Freedom News Service
Two years before 9/11, I ditched my
Navy duds and surrendered to life as
a Marine spouse. I never imagined
my identity would become hopelessly
intertwined with my role as a military
spouse. But years of war and multiple
deployments have a way of reminding
military spouses that their mate is
employed by Uncle Sam.
As our soldiers rotate in and
out of combat zones, spouses have
learned a unique set of social skills, a
sensitivity born of necessity.
For example, my running
partner's husband deploys in August
for nine months. Leaving her in a
foreign country, with four boys under
the age of 11. When is an appropriate
time for me to bring up that my own
Hubby is in Hawaii for a three-week
exercise?
The correct answer is, "Only if she
notices his absence."
Personally, my Hubby hasn't
seen combat in years. I know I'm
abundantly fortunate, so I try to keep
my lips buttoned,
Though there isn't much
complaining, there is an unspoken
pecking order regarding who retains


IMilitar~y Spouses knore
that sometimes the

most deincultpart ofa

deploym~nrt begzins after
the soldier returns.

complaining privileges. A spouse
enduring a nine-month deployment
should be wary about grumbling to
one enduring a 15-month deployment.
Back-to-back six-month deployments
trump a single six-month deployment.
A field exercise trumps a conference
(the latter comes with the means to
phone and e-mail home).
Getting the hang of it? We can
delve deeper: Working weekends
trumps working weekdays until 8
p.m. Working shifts trumps working
occasional night duty. And it's
always in bad taste to complain to a
temporarily-single military spouse
who has more or younger kids than
you do.
It's never a good idea to brag
about a spouse's combat award.
Combat awards are often reminders
of a traumatic, life-altering event,
and your spouse may not feel the


same about the award as you do.
And, though all Purple Hearts
warrant respect, you'll feel silly if an
acquaintance follows your dramatic
"sprained ankle" Purple Heart story
with her "shrapnel embedded in his
skuHl" story.
Military spouses know that
sometimes the most difficult part of
a deployment begins after the soldier
returns. We know that a Marine with
no visible wounds can still, in fact, be
wounded.11taumatic Brain Injuries
(TBI), depression and PTSD are
invisible but devastating.
Within our ranks are World War
II and Vietnam-era spouses, wives of
POWs and widows. A military spouse
at Walter Reed will read this column
online, bedside. These spouses
remind us that our burdens are light
in comparison. They remind us to
treat each other with kindness and
support one another. After all, we are,
ultimately, all in this together.

Though our ice wasn't
delivered by a mule
Stand wagon, both
home delivery of ice and
mules and
wagons
were very
much a
part of
Growing
Sup. In the
summer
HAPPY CORNIER months,
Hazel Wells Tison ice was
delivered
to our
home and the deliveryman
I remember most was
Elijah Golden who also
operated a dairy in north
Bonifay.
The 25 or 100 pound
block was placed in the
3-door tin-lined wood
refrigerator that had two
other compartments for
food storage. The main
thing we stored there were
the enamel pans of raw
milk and the butter made
from the fresh cream,
which rose to the top of
the bowl after a day or so.
It was then placed in the
stone churn to "clabber"
and was then churned
into sweet butter. The
remainder of the milk was
used as buttermilk. The
skim milk was either used
for cooking or was given to
the hogs.
On our back porch,
we had what seemed to a
small girl a huge wooden
insulated box that held
ice and was used for the
fish which our Dad picked
up in West Bay on his
Friday run to Panama
City and the beaches.
These were sold from


the truck on Saturday in
Caryville. Some were sold
from home and I learned
to weigh out mullet at
10 cents per pound or 3
pounds for a quarter.
Perry, my brother,
reminded me that Daddy
got an ice delivery route
one summer and it was
Perry's job to make the
rounds. A lot of the folks
had no refrigerator, so it
was stored in a washtub
wrapped in many layers
of burlap bags (corn
sacks) and kept in the
coolest place available,
often under the house.
He told about dropping
a 100-pound block of ice
and one of our great
uncles, trying to sound
erudite, I suppose, asked
him, "Son, were you
trying to handle that big
block with main strength
and awkwardness?"
The Wells Ice Delivery
Service was short lived,
but that expression was
added to the long lexicon
of "sayings" of the Wells
family.
Mules were a very
important part of our
history, too. I remember
the pride Daddy exhibited
when he purchased a
matched pair of Mustang
Mules named Nell and
Mary. Though they were
basically broke to the plow,
their spiritedness caused
Daddy and the farm hands
(including Jim, Perry,
Clyde and Max) to recall
how to cuss if they had
forgotten. (Kind of like
my experience with the
computer.)
I don't recall riding


in our farm wagon with
either of those mules
in the harness, but
Grandpa's mule, Doc,
pulled the ground slide
that carried seed and
fertilizer to the field and
then pulled his plow. We
children were sometimes
allowed to ride on that.
Our grandparents rode the
buggy to Bethel Church on
Saturday, which that mule
or an earlier one pulled.
(They rode with us on
Sunday unless Grandpa,
an impatient man, decided
to walk on.)
I remember going with
Grandma in the buggy to
Hinson's Crossroads to
spend the night with her
youngest daughter, my
Aunt Jenny Wells Hinson,
and her family. I believe
that horse or mule was
named Emma. That was
an eye opener for me to
see Grandma hitch up
the buggy, command the
animal and negotiate
those miles and miles of
dirt roads. In my vague
memory, we came back
via Union Hill Road to
visit the Cousin Angus
Brock family who lived
off that road. I think we
stopped on our way down
to speak to the Uncle Bill
Swindle family, another
cousin, who lived at
Mattox Springs near Pate
Lake.
Uncle Alex and Aunt
Arleva Wells and their
family of 12 children
lived down the hill from
us in the "Big House,"
which our grandparents
had lived in, but moved
into a smaller, newer


home after most of their
children were out of the
nest. They had a two-
mule wagon in which
they all rode to church,
or past our house to visit
their other Grandma, the
widow Mary Cook, whose
home was on what is now
Highway 79 where Tom
and Carol Cook have their
home and Antique Shop. I
can't remember if mules
pulled that two-mule
wagon or if it was pulled
with oxen. I know Uncle
Alex had a team of oxen
with which he did some
logging.
A two-mule wagon ride
I had as a child was when
I went home with some of
my dad's Bryant cousins
to the Miller's Ferry area
and spent a week. The
long ride from our home
south of Bonifay to theirs
in the sandy reaches of
Miller's Ferry community
was somewhat scary for
an 8-year-old, but not as
scary as the ride across
the ferry when they
carried me to Stanley's
store at New Hope Hill
a week later to catch a
ride home with Daddy
on his return trip from
"peddling." Scarier still
was when they left me
there to wait for the sound
of the air horn on the pick-
up truck as they returned
home to get across the
ferry before dark.
Mules and ice
deliveries are pleasant
to remember, but not
anything I'd like to
return to. I wonder what
kind of memories our
grandchildren will have.


Here are some general rules
for parents and guardians to help
keep their children safe:
1. Make sure you know where
your children are at all times.
Know their friends and be very
clear about which home they may
visit. Make sure your children
check in with you when they ar-
rive and depart a particular loca-
tion and when there is a change
of plans. You should also check in
with them when you are running
late or there is a change of plans.
2. Never leave children unat-
tended in a vehicle. The potential
dangers to their safety far out
weight the convenience or "fun."
Remind them to never hitch-
hike, approach a car or engage
in a conversation with anyone in
a car that they do not know and
trust, or go anywhere with any-
one without getting your permis-


sion first.
3. Be involved in your chil-
dren's activities. This will give
you a better opportunity to ob-
serve how the adults in charge
interact with your children. If you
have concerns, take them up with
the organization in charge.
4. Listen to your children. Pay
attention when they tell you they
don't want to be with someone or
go somewhere. This may be an
indication of more than a person-
ality conflict or lack of interest in
the activity or event
5. Notice when anyone shows
one or all of your children a great
deal of attention or begins to give
them gifts. Take the time to talk
to your children about the person
and find out why the person is
acting this way.
6. Teach your children they
have a right to say NO to any un-


age open communications. Look
and listen for any clues that
something may be troubling your
child, because children are not
always comfortable disclosing
disturbing events or feelings. If
your child does confide in you,
stay calm, non critical and non-
judgmental. Work with the child
to help resolve the problem.
8. Be sure to screen babysit-
ters and care givers. Many states
now have a public registry that
allows parents and guardians to
check out individuals for prior
criminal records and sex offens-
es Check references with other
families that have used them.
Drop by unexpectedly to see how
your child is doing. Ask your chil-
dren about their experience with
the care giver and listen carefully
to the response.
9. Practice basic safety skills


with your children. Arrange an
outing where your children can
practice checking in with you,
using pay phones, going to the re-
stroom with a friend and locating
adults for assistance if needed.
Remember allowing your child
to wear clothing or carry items in
public with their names displayed
can bring unwanted attention
from inappropriate people.
10. Remember there is no sub-
stitute for your attention and su-
pervision.

and resist. Teach them to yell
loudly that the person is not their
father/mother/guardian and to
tell you immediately.

in your child's behavior. Encour-

TALLAHASSEE- The

During the week-long

Roadside
Safety checks
PANAMA CITY The
Florida Highway Patrol
and the Alabama High-
way Patrol are announc-
ing a Roadside Safety
Checkpoint. The check-
point will start on July 31,
at 8 p.m. and end Aug. 1


at 2 a.m.
The Roadside Safety
Checkpoint will take
place on State 75 at the
Florida/Alabama line,
in Jackson County and
Houston County, Ala.
Warning devices will be
placed in strategic loca-
tions leading up to the
checkpoint for the safety
and protection of motor-
ists and officers.
During the operation,
vehicles will be stopped
to check for driver impair-
ment and other violations


of Florida and Alabama
law. The location was
selected because of the
number of alcohol related
incidents on State 75.
Sobriety checkpoints
have been successful in
the past and it is antici-
pated that this operation
will be a success. The
Florida Highway Patrol
and the Alabama High-
way Patrol encourage
motorists not to drink
and drive. Select a desig-
nated driver if your plans
include alcohol.

John,
I never imagined that I would be writing a letter to you in Heaven. It h~as
been 4 years ago on July 18, 2005 that God wanted you to be with Him. Yo~u :
have had many travels in your life. '
First being born at Camp Pendleton, CA into our Marine family. Paul
loved his new brother. Then moving to Louisville, KY where you dad's .0) --.
Marine buddy Bryan wanted us to live. Next on to Atlanta, GA where !our r
dad's work took us. Finally moving to Bonifay, FL where you became A p~art-
of so many people's lives. After graduating in 2002 from Holmes Counlt! .
High School you went on to Parris Island. After 13 weeks of hard work. !ou jpii
were now a United States Marine. How proud we all were of you! .
Your next step took you to Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. You were part of ,
the 1/3 family. Shortly after you went to the Philippines to guard against
Muslim guerillas. How worried I was! --.\
You were in Okinawa,Japan when you called to tell me you were going -
on an early deployment to help fight the global war on terrorism. I was ,
sure hoping it wasn't going to be Fallujah, but it was in this city in Iraql rlat
you helped the marines in 2004 take over. I was one of those anxious mlonis
that I see now waiting to hear you were ok. . d
Then in June 2005 you were home on leave. What a welcome when you rode into town by the Dixie Ironhorse
clubhouse of the sign that was made to honor you. You bought your motorcycle. You spent time with your family
and friends. You touched all of our lives while you were home. Then off to New York where your Marine buddy
Andrew wanted you to visit. You went to watch him skydive and by chance they had an opening so you could do
the same. The video I have of this is so memorable.
OnJuly 4, 2005 I was in lowa with my family watching the parade and fireworks enjoying my birthday. Not
realizing you were hurt and wondering later why I didn't hear from you. The next day I found out and was flying
to Hawaii with your dad. Paul and Vicky joined us later.
Being part of the Marine Corps family was so special to us. The memorial before we left was so touching. I
just wish we could know what really happened. The stacks of investigative papers sent ruled it as an accident
but there is more to it. I just hope someone can live
with themselves for doing this to you.
One comfort is the quilt that was sent in honor of
you. A special marine momJulie Allcox had this made
and I wanted to share it with your friends. To really

those special people in my life that have already seen
it. The note enclosed with the quilt says: Each stitch

out to you delivering our sympathies in the loss of
your beloved son John. We pray that as you receive this
quilt you realize how much your son continues to be in
our thoughts and the gratitude we feel for the sacrifice
~ ~B~Whe made for each of us. In the short time he was here
through his life he gifted the world with honor, integrity,
commitment and courage. Mrs. Allcox met you when
) you cam~e back with her son from Iraq. She said it was a
true pleasure and I raised a fine young man,
On behalf of the parents and friends of the 1/3
Marines we will continue to think of and remember
John.
4* ~ s s There is not a day that doesn't go by that you are in
my! thoughts. There are so many stories to share, but
this was one of the special ones.
Love you,
Mom

Special to the Holmes County
Times-Advertiser

"My family was born on the east
side of the Choctawhatchee River.
And, I always thought I would be laid
near my Grandpa Keith." Those
were the words my father said with
such earnestness that I knew I could
delay no longer. When I hung up the
phone, I had to go home right away.
Three times that year I had made the
long drive from Maryland to Florida,
because my father's health was
waning but somehow time-after-time,
he pulled out of near-death and
climbed aboard a boat or a tractor to
resume his everyday life. This time
it felt different--Daddy was talking
about where he had wanted to be
buried and the sad realization had
dawned that there would be no room
for his children to surround him if he
was laid to rest beside his grandfather
in the Whitewater Cemetery.
I drove home with fear growing
in my heart and a thought began
gnawing my mind--what kind of
world would it be without Junior
Sconiers? He loved life and he loved
his family. He lived everyday with
such passion and when he paused to
skin a deer or clean a fish, he would
begin telling stories. He told tall tales
about himself and his fr~iends--not
little things to be forgotten but such
escapades that made up a good life.
When I arrived in Dothan, we spent
a few more days at Flowers Hospital.
Family and friends came often and
Daddy thrived on every minute of
each visit. The doctor said, "You sir
may be the richest man I have ever
met because your wife has not left
your side; your children obviously
adore you, and your friends are here
everyday." Daddy answered simply,
"I am the richest man alive." He
was released on the Fourth of July
and I drove him home, fearing, but
not knowing that it would be the last
drive we took together. We laughed
and talked on the way and he sat
proudly looking out the window as one
familiar scene after another rolled
by. Daddy always had the sharper
eyes and he pointed out twin calves in
a field near Slocomb, and then soon
after, he spotted a double rainbow.
As customary, we stopped outside of
Hartford at his favorite little oyster
bar but it was closed for the holiday. I

SCOTTSBLUFF, NE A pur-
suit of a stolen vehicle on
Interstate 80 in Kimball
County, Nebraska, led to
the arrest of a Chipley
man wanted on a criminal
warrant. The information
was provided by the Ne-
braska State Patrol.
Around 2:30 p.m.
(MST), Thursday, July 23,
a trooper with the Nebras-
ka State Patrol 'lt~oop E
Headquarters- Scottsbluff,
attempted a traffic stop of
a red Toyota Camry, about
five miles (Mile Marker
25), east of Kimball, Neb.,
on westbound Interstate
80. The vehicle failed to
stop and sped off at a high
rate of speed. The trooper
initiated a pursuit.
Both passenger-side
tires of the vehicle were
flattened near Mile Mark-
er 21, when another troop-
er who was in the area laid
stop sticks on the road.
The driver lost control of
the car near Mile Marker
17. The vehicle went off
the north side of the Inter-
state, rolled at least twice
down a steep embank-
ment, and went through a


barbed wire fence, before
landing upright.
The driver of the ve-
hicle identified as Manual
Ramirez, 62, of Chipley,
was taken by ambulance
to the Kimball Hospital,
where he was treated and
released. He was lodged
in the Kimball County Jail
on local charges of pos-
session of a stolen vehicle,
flight to avoid arrest, reck-
less driving, and speed-
ing.
The NSP reported
that Ramirez is wanted in
Florida on a stolen vehicle
charge as well as viola-
tion of probation on an
aggravated assault with a
weapon charge. He will be
extradited to Florida, ac-
cording to a news release.
The pursuit reached
speeds over 100 mph, cov-
ered roughly eight miles
and lasted less than five
minutes.
Nebraska State Patrol
Spokesperson Deb Collins
said that Ramirez rented
his vehicle at the Panama
City airport. Chipley Po-
lice Department Spokes-
person Marsha Sher-
rouse said the charges on
Ramirez are out of Bay
County, although the sus-
pect lived in Chipley.


A great hunter, fine fisherman, and a capable farmer, Junior was known
to his hunting buddies as Trail blazer.


teased him, "I busted you out of the
hospital on Independence Day, and
you want to stop on the way home
and eat oysters while wearing your
pajamas." But Daddy could never be
outdone and he smiled and said, "The
oysters will taste just as good in these
clothes as they would if I were wearing
a suit." Every time I looked at him
during those last precious days my
heart filled with pride. I knew Daddy
was very ill but he had such courage
and resolve that I held out hope that
he might just find his way through this
rough patch.
His homecoming was grand.
Larry Sellars, a longtime friend and
hunting companion was waiting
to help Daddy inside and into his
favorite chair. In his final days, his
friends and family rallied and often
had to wait in line to spend time
with him. He felt humbled by the
outpouring of support and he smiled
often. Every night when the crowd
left, we would talk long into the night.
He would often wake me or Mom
while in great pain but he remained
gentle and strong. Every sunrise
seemed to raise our hopes and bring
him some relief. After one very hard
night, one of Daddy's dearest friends
Jim King stopped in early to deliver
a breakfast that Evie had cooked
special for him. They sat talking
as they had so many times before
and when it came time for Jim to
leave, Daddy said "How'bout we go


fishing--just give me one minute to
get dressed." Everyone laughed and
a few of us cried. It was becoming
clear that there would be no more
fishing this side of Jordan.
The ladies of the community
brought all his favorite foods and his
friends traveled from far and wide
to give my daddy, the greatest man I
have ever known--a proper sending
off. After one such day surrounded
by his children, grandchildren, other
family members, and countless
friends he told Mom that he had no
fear of dying but that he did not want
to leave his children.
So in those last days, I listened to
his friends tell stories some I did not
know, others I had heard many times
and listened again as if it were the
first telling--loving every minute of
reliving the life of a man admired by
so many. My brothers and my sister
spent time together, and time alone
with our father ur hero.
Daddy's grandchildren came often
and he glowed with pride as each
stepped near his bed--he loved us and
we all felt it more than ever. But, then
on July 8, 2008, he slipped away and
in that moment, the world changed
forever. It did not take long to bury
a good man but it will take many
years maybe a lifetime to feel whole
again. Junior Howard Sconiers was a
giant among men and a dearly loved
patriarch to his family. He will not be
forgotten.

Sting results in

JAY FELSBERG

afelsberg@chipleypaper.com

CHIPLEY A sting opera-
tion mounted by Chipley po-
lice resulted in two arrests
last week. Information was
provided in a news release
from CPD.
On the morning of
Wednesday, July 22, the
Chipley Police Department
arrested Ola Riley Ward of
Wausau for the purchase
of a trafficking amount
of a controlled substance
(Hydrocodone). Her son,
Devon Monroe Ward was
arrested on the charge of
possession of a controlled
substance (Xanax).
"The misuse and abuse
of prescription medications
is a growing problem," said
Chief Kevin Crews. "These
medications are highly
controlled and the misuse
of prescriptions can be ex-
tremely harmful.
"Many prescription
drugs can have addictive
qualities that rival those
of street drugs, when not
used under the care of a
physician. The Chipley Po-
lice Department continues
to take an aggressive ap-
proach in the enforcement
of laws of this nature."


The lack of trans-
portation has become a
major problem for many
area cancer patients.
They may need daily or
weekly treatment, often
over the course of sev-
eral months and they
don't have a car or are
simply too ill to drive.

MARIANNA "Big Sam,"
Mitchell as he was known
for more than 40 years of
state service, will be hon- .
ored at a ceremony, din- '
ner and dance celebrating ,
his life on Aug. 29 at the
National Guard Armory in
BG
Marianna. B
The event will pay trib- MI
ute to the former Florida
legislator's legacy while raising
funds to create a perpetual scholar-
ship in his name at Chipola, where
he played on the college's first foot-
ball and basketball teams in 1947.
Mitchell was a life-long friend
of the late Chipola coach Milton H.
Johnson. Both attended Livingston
College (now the University of West
Alabama) in the late 1940s.
Mitchell began his coaching du-


ties at Campbellton High in
1952-530off with abang with
a first-year season record of
24 wins and only two losses.
His coaching job was short-
lived at Campbellton, how-
ever, as he was called to
service in the United States


Coach of the Year in 1957, and in
football in 1960-61. Mitchell's bas-
ketball team won the state basket-
ball championship in 1957.
Mitchell was appointed principal
of Vernon High School during the
school yearl1967-68 and served until
1977. He was elected to the Board
of Directors of the Florida High
School Activities Association from
1968-1975, and was elected vice-
president forml1975-1977.
He served in the Florida Leg-
islature for more than 20 years,
receiving many legislative awards.
He completed his term as speaker
pro tempore during the 1988-1990
sessions. After retiring in 1994, he
worked with the Florida Lakes De-
partment for three years.
Mitchell was born in Chipley in
1929. He married Nellie Henders on


Sept. 4, 1951, and they had two chil-
dren, Brenda and Sammie Jean. Af-
ter retirement he settled in Vernon,
where he ran a small seafood busi-
ness as a hobby, which allowed him
to make new friends until his death
in 2003.
The event will begin with a social
at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 7
p.m. Entertainment will begin at
8 p.m., featuring the world-famous
Embers, the Raleigh, N.C., band

termine eligibility for financial aid,
such as Pell Grants, work-study
programs and student loans. It is
very important that students and
families pay attention to deadline
dates when applying for financial
aid and scholarships," Roberts
said. "Some financial aid options
have limited funding; therefore,
the 'early bird gets the worm' phi-
losophy will apply."
To meet the Aug. 3 processing


deadline, students are encour-
aged to submit the FAFSA as
soon as possible to ensure it can
be processed by the deadline.
Tax information for both the col-
lege-bound student and parents
is needed when completing the
FAFSA.
The FAFSA can be com-
pleted electronically at www.
fafsa.ed.gov. The Chipola College
school code is 001472.


All students seeking Finan-
cial Aid must have completed
the FASFA and submitted the re-
quired paperwork to the Chipola
Financial Aid Office in order to
use financial aid to pay tuition for
the Fall 2009 semester. Students
who are not eligible for financial
aid or who have not completed
their financial aid file by Aug. 3
must make other arrangements
to pay for tuition and books.


To avoid delays, students are
encouraged to: apply at www.
fafsa.ed.gov; complete the appli-
cation thoroughly and promptly;
keep a copy of all documents
used to complete the application;
and submit additional requested
information to the Chipola Finan-
cial Aid Office promptly.

cial Aid, visit www.chipola.edu, or

in July. The local chapter
received first place in Con-

The weeklong com-

most important document
is one of our country's
least-known official obser-
vances. The Constitution of
the United States of Amer-
ica is the oldest document
still in active use that out-
lines the self-government
of a people. This landmark
idea that men had the in-
alienable right as individu-
als to be free and live their
lives under their own gov-
ernance was the impetusof


the American Revolution.
Constitution Day, Sept.
17, was celebrated by the
DAR soon after its found-
ing in 1890 and expanded
over the years into a week-
long observance. In 1955,
DAR petitioned Congress
to set aside Sept. 17-23 an-
nually to be dedicated for
the observance of Consti-
tution Week. This was ad-
opted by the U.S. Congress
and signed into Public Law
915 on Aug. 2, 1956, by Pres-
ident Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er.

interview




((dreamed an interview
with God.'Come in,'
"God said. 'So, you
would like to interview Me?'
'If you have the time,' I said.
God smiled and said: 'My time
is eternity and
is enough to
do everything;
ez what questions
Q 1~. do you have
. in mind to ask
me?
'What
surprises you
LET YOUR most about
LIGHT SHINEI mankind?
Wes Webb God answered:
'That they get
bored of being
children, are in a rush to grow
up, and then long to be children
again. That they lose their
health to make money and then
lose their money to restore
their health. That by thinking
anxiously about the future,
they forget the present, such
that they live neither for the
present nor the future. That
they live as if they will never
die, and they die as if they had
never lived...
God's hands took mine and
we were silent for a while and
then I asked...'As a parent,
what are some of life's lessons
you want your children to
learn?
God replied with a smile:'To
learn that they cannot make
anyone love them. What they
can do is to let themselves
be loved. To learn that what
is most valuable is not what
they have in their lives, but
who they have in their lives.
To learn that it is not good to
compare themselves to others.
All will be judged individually
on their own merits, not as a
group on a comparison basis!
To learn that a rich person is
not the one who has the most
but is one who needs the least.
To learn that it only takes a
few seconds to open profound
wounds in persons we love, and
that it takes many years to heal
them. To learn to forgive by
practicing forgiveness. To learn
that there are persons that love
them dearly, but simply do not
now how to express or show
their feelings. To learn that
money can buy everything but
happiness. To learn that two
people can look at the same
thing and see it totally different.
To learn that a true friend is
someone who knows everything
about them...and likes them
anyway. To learn that it is not
always enough that they be
forgiven by others, but that they
have to forgive themselves.'
I sat there for a while
enjoying the moment. I
thanked Him for his time and
for all that He has done for me
and my family, and He replied,
'Anytime. I'm here 24 hours a
day. All you have to do is ask for
me, and I'll answer.'
People will forget what you
said. People will forget what
you did, but people will never
forget how you made them
feel." (Author unknown)
We have all of God's answers
to life's problems written in His
7od.P Ilsai in Tm n y
by inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for
reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness,
that the man of God may be
complete, thoroughly equipped
for every good work" (New
King James).
But to know these things
we must open God's word and
study it. Paul also said in 2
Timothy 2:15, "Study to shew
thyself approved unto God, a
workman that needeth not to
be ashamed, rightly dividing
the word of truth"(King James
Version) .

any years ago, Rusty Goodman gave
us a beautiful song that has been
Ma blessing to all who have enjoyed
singing or listening as others sing about
the Old "Light House" on the hill.
Until a few weeks back, I had only
seen and been able to go up in one


beautiful because of the way they sit on
the property, but their real beauty is in
the service they provide in the day and
the night. They have been instrumental
in saving millions of lives and will for
years to come.
As I mentioned earlier, as I observed
the beauty of the lighthouses, I also
observed the beauty of the Master
behind the beauty. I began to see how our
wonderful Creator created this beautiful
place, York. But as He created it, He
saw the danger that these rocks could
mean to men and women traveling by
ships, so He placed these two preciously
positioned islands just off the coast and
then gave man the wisdom to place the
lighthouses on them.
Though Rusty Goodman did a
beautiful job describing Jesus as the
Lighthouse leading us through the rough
storms of this life and to our eternal
home, I also see something even more
wonderful.
As Jesus is the Light in this dark
world ("Your Word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path" Psalms 119:105,
New King James Version), He preciously
has called and placed His church in this
world to be warning beacons to others,
that all would have the opportunity to be
rescued from eternal destruction, and
given leadership to the safe harbor of
Eternal life ("The lord is my light and my
Salvation" Psalms 27:1 NKJV). We must
not put our lights under a bushel, but let
it shine that others may see the dangers
of a reckless sinful life (Matthew 5:14-16).

actual lighthouse, the
one at St. Augustine.
And even though I know
several people who collect
figurines and pictures of
lighthouses, seeing one in
its place in the world really
let's the beauty of the light
outshine the beauty of the
structure.
While on a mission
trip sharing the gospel
of Jesus Christ in New


Hampshire, we took a quick trip over to
Maine on the Fourth of July, and there I
saw not one but two beautiful lighthouses
standing in their place of honor. As I
looked at them I also saw something that
goes beyond their structural beauty. I
saw a combination of man working with
God, to perform that which God gave
him, wisdom, knowledge and a desire to
do. And that is to lead and protect God's
most precious creation to Him, man,
I stood on those large gorgeous
rocks of the Atlantic coastline looking
across the bay that separated us from
actually getting a close up, personal look
at the Nubble Lighthouse at the Yorks,
which is one of the most photographed
lighthouses in the world (although I
had forgotten my camera). As I let my
ears, nose, skin and eyes just linger over
what they were experiencing, my eyes
saw something almost out of sight that
I would not have thought of being out
there. There it was another lighthouse
that no one ever talks about; they had
very little information about it in the
souvenir shops.
As I enquired of locals about the


lighthouses, I found out that for the past
few years no one actually lived at either
lighthouse, and that it is illegal to go to
the islands where they are located.
I also discovered that these
lighthouses were not only valuable in
directing ships of old away from these
beautiful but dangerous rocks, but still
are valuable and used by ships today.
You see, these lighthouses are not only

Family Values
People often talk about the im portance of fam ily val ues,
sometimes even suggesting that the family is deteriorating.It is
perhaps true that the"traditional"family,
composed of one man and one woman
Joined in marriage and having children,
is not necessarily the norm nowadays.
In fact, statistics indicate a significant
increase in the number of single-par-
ent families, blended families, and other
permutations of the traditional family in
ou society today .t tf lhis rme nsarly a
ily structure merely changing to reflect
the demands of modern life? If we look
to the Bible for enlightenment here, we
are unlikely to find any unambiguous help. Firstly, the Bible itself
illustrates an evolution in the concept of the family. In the Old
Testament, we see many examples of polygamy, and kinship rela-
tions were certainly not what we think of them today. Who could
marry each other and how people"got married" has changed
considerably over the centuries.In the Bible,Jesus tells us that
"whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and
sister, and mother." (Matthew 1 2:50).Wh ile it may be tem pting
to see this as signaling Jesus's disdain for the nuclear family,
perhaps the more sensible interpretation is that Jesus is trying
to extend the concept of the family so that it includes all of our
fellow human beings,and that God must come before family.
50, the next time we are tem pted to judge someone who comes
fromeadnont (Hitional fan Ity,we should consider that they are
inde our brter and ster.
S5o Vhn aas we have opportunity, let us do good to all men...
-RSV Gaaians 61

Local


Holmes County Times-Advertiser I Washington County News | BY


I read a lot. I read
newspaper columns and
journals about writing and
architecture. I read about
the work I am doing and the
work I plan to do. But it's been
awhile since I read anything
for the sheer joy of it.
The articles and columns
on writing, teaching, and
business demand something
from me. They demand that I
learn something; that I form
opinions; that I incorporate
their words into my knowledge
base. Those articles demand
that I work. I spent my reading
time studying.
I remember several
years ago when I
worked at Barnes &
Noble: I picked up a
book of comic strips on
my way to the break
room at work. When
I saw the book, I was d
drawn to it in the same
way that a redneck is OE
compelled to pick up Ane
something shiny. In
the back, I ran into one of my
bookstore bosses.
"Getting ready for some
heavy reading, huh?"
"Uh, er..." I can be a real
orator sometimes. "Just for
fun, you know." He asked if I
was reading a novel. I told him
no.
"Why aren't you reading
any novels right now?" It's
important for bookstore
employees (and English
teachers for that matter) to
keep up with literature.
I explained that I was
reading. I told him about
the articles and books I was
studying. I explained that
I meant I wasn't reading
anything for pleasure or
leisure.
Something was wrong.
I realized that up to that
moment I was no longer
reading, and I couldn't
remember how. Reading had
become work for me. I had

forgotten that reading is also,
and probably more so, about
relaxing and enjoying. It is the
ultimate leisure sport. So I
began a campaign to re-teach
myself.
All week long, I read the
comics in The Monitor. I read
an article about Henry Morton
Stanley and Dr. Livingstone.
I read an article on the Venus
de Milo. I loved it. Everything
I read asked only one thing of
me. That I read.
This last week I read for
fun. I don't know anything
productive gained by reading
"Pearls Before Swine" in


Vacation season is officially
upon us. With the kids out of
school and the temperature
rising, it's time to get in your car
or to the airport and go to that
tropical (or historic) destination.
While you may opt to board
your pets during your trip, if you
decide that you want to include
them in your vacation, there are
some things to consider.
"If you are driving with your
pets it is great to know ahead of
time if they get car sick," notes
Dr. Mark Stickney, Director
of General Surgery Services
at the Texas A&M University
College of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences. "Before
your trip, take short drives
around town to see how your pet
reacts."
If your pet does get carsick
or is very anxious on car rides,
your veterinarian can prescribe
a sedative or an anti-nausea
medication such as Dramamine.
"Although Dramamine is an
over-the-counter medication it is
still important to check with your
veterinarian on dosage," states
Stickney. "I would also take a
couple of short rides after giving
them the medication to make
sure that it is working."
Once you've established that
your pet can comfortably nide
in the car, you will have to start
packing up their stuff to take with
you. Leashes, collars, bowls,
food, and identification tags
should all be a part of any pet's
traveling bag.
"It's important to make sure
that your pet is on a leash when
you stop at a gas station or rest
stop. These are high traffic areas
and there are a lot of new smells
that can distract them," remarks
Stickney. "Even if your pet is on
a leash, make sure that their
identification tags are on their
collar just in case. Microchips


are even better because a collar
or ID tag can get lost."
If your pet is on any kind of
medication make sure you stock
up before your trip in case you
cannot get it where you are
going. While you may be able
to buy your pet's food at your
destination, it is a good idea to
make sure so you don't have to
feed them an unfamiliar diet.
"While you can test your pet
on new foods at home, you really
don't want to change their food
on a trip," warns Stickney. "This
could upset their stomach and
cause diarrhea- something you
really wouldn't want to happen
on the road or in a plane."
Proof of vaccinations and
medical records are good things
to have on any trip with your
pet in case of an emergency, but
might be necessary if you are
flying with them.
"Most, if not all, airlines will
require proof of vaccination and a
health certificate in order to put
them on the airplane," explains
Stickney. "You have to get the
health certificate from your
veterinarian 10-15 days prior to
a trip so make sure you leave
yourself enough time to do this."
Checking with an airline
on their rules and procedures
can help make sure that all the
paperwork is in order and can
also give you a chance to ask
any questions you may need to
in order to make sure you have
peace of mind.
"I would ask them what
arrangements they make for
the animals aboard in case of a
layover. You want to make sure
they don't leave them waiting
out on a hot tarmac," advises
Stickney. As much as you
wouldn't want your pet sitting on
a sweltering runway, it would be
even worse to leave your pet in
the car on a hot summer day.


"Never leave your pet in the
car for any length of time," urges
Stickney. "You might think that
a couple of minutes are okay
because you could stand it, but
pets don't sweat, they pant.
Because of this they need cool
air to regulate their temperature
and if they can't get it they get
into trouble quickly."
Another safety note that
Stickney adds is that because
your pet might not be in
a temperature controlled
environment on an airplane, you
don't want to give it sedatives or
anything that might hinder their
internal temperature regulation.
Once you have made all the
arrangements and precautions
for your pets and your family you
are set and ready go.
"If staying at hotels, make
sure ahead of time that they are
pet frendly," advises Stickney.
"Before you leave, make sure
everyone has had a chance to
use the bathroom and if you have
any cats bring a litter box and
fresh litter. If you do all these
things you
should be set for a great
vacation with your family and
your pets.")

the comics. But I am
excited to see what
goes down between
Brad and Dirk. I don't
know when I'll ever
need to know that
Stanley's expedition
to find Livingstone
was a turning point
in the ascendancy of
American journalism.


And who cares that
the Venus de Milo is from the
Hellenistic period and not
the Classical? I liked reading
about it though.
Too many people have
forgotten, or have never
learned, how to read: students
who say they hate to read;
adults who don't read anything
other than manuals or memos
or "do-my-job-better"' books.
All that has its place, but it's
not leisure. It's brain overload.
Reading was meant to be
fun. Done right, learning to
read the first time is as fun
as going down the big slide or
setting up a sprinkler on a hot
day. I forgot that. Last week, I
took a time-out to remember,
Maybe this week it's your
turn for a time-out.
