I cannot say enough about these wonderful, hardworking people, said Mayor Eddie Sims. Theyve been a strong asset to this city working diligently for many years.

Addressing the visitors, Lavitra Brook, a citizen of Bonifay, wished the council to address issues with her water bill. Ive got to complain about the water bill, said Brook. Ive been living here since the 80s, and Ive never had a water bill over $100. Now Ive received a bill for $107 and $214 in the last two months. Theres no leaks, and I dont know why thered be such an outrageous water bill. The city agreed to continue investigating the matter with her. Brook also added that she wasnt the only one on her block who has had a recent outrageous spike in the water bill. The city approved to take action against the Trant property for refusal to address multiple clean-up notices. The city approved to take the cost of cleaning the property and all expenses involved and put a lean on the property. The issue with renaming Bay Avenue to Martin Luther King Avenue was tabled because of inactivity by the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners. Weve been in a dilemma with the county about renaming the street; weve refused to pay, said Sims. Get breaking news, videos, expanded stories, photo galleries, opinions & more...

National Collection Week is wrapping up for the worlds largest Christmas project of its kind Operation Christmas Child where participants ll empty shoeboxes with items for kids suffering from natural disaster, war, terrorism, famine and poverty. Soon, these shoeboxes will be delivered to 8.5 million kids worldwide. For families who havent yet packed their gift of hope, its not too late. Many local families are choosing to pack shoebox gifts virtually through Build a Box, an online giving tool. Its a simple and quick, yet meaningful, way to impact a child in need. Volunteers can visit the projects website at www. samaritanspurse.org/occ, select a childs age and gender, shop through an online selection of gifts, pack them in an empty shoe box, and nish it off with a note of encouragement. Then, through tracking technology, donors can follow the box to the destination country where it will be hand-delivered. Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritans Purse, uses simple giftlled shoeboxes to let hurting children know they are loved and not forgotten. For many of these children, the simple shoebox will be the rst gift they have ever received. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has hand-delivered more than 86 million giftlled shoeboxes to needy children in more than 130 countries. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, call (407) 8523727 or visit www. samaritanspurse.org/occ. The deadline for building a shoebox online is Dec. 31.

Christmas celebration coverage Patriots invite KrisAnne Hall back Web-savvy volunteers pack boxes of hope By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com The Tri-County Community Council is facing cuts in the near future for Holmes, Washington and Bay counties transportation programs. Holmes is facing just more than $5,700 in cuts, which may mean the end of their transportation program. The same can be said for Washington County, with a cut of exactly $6,600. Bay will be cut $3,500. According to TCCC, these cuts will be made within the rst six months of 2012. The only county looking at an increase is Walton County, in the amount of $2,700. A program that will be cut out of Holmes, Washington, Jackson and Walton counties entirely is the ARRA Weatherization Assistance Program, which will of cially end on March 31, 2012. Many are speculating that the Weatherization Assistance Program will revert back to old funding levels, prior to the ARRA stimulus funding for the past three years, said the executive director for TCCC, Joel Paul. At the end of March 2012, Tri-County will have weatherized over 1,100 homes and spent a little over $7 million for the three-year contract. The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) grant amount is still unknown for 2012, but the forecast is for cuts in this program also. The Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) budget has been cut by $166,609. The federally funded HEAD START Program also received a 1.5 percent decrease beginning Dec. 1 of this year, or an estimated $15,000 per year.

Christmas EVENTS Wednesday, December 14, 2011 BETHLEHEM Bethlehems FFA chapter competed in the subdistrict contest Dec. 6. Tyler Walker placed rst in tractor driving; Stacy Collins placed second in prepared speaking; Sarah Covell placed third in creed speaking. In addition, the opening/ closing ceremony team won rst place. Members of Bethlehems team were Lauren Drake, Macey Thomas, Josie Dampier, Bekah Dixon, Joshua Trammell, Caleb Brannon and Gene Myers. FFA subdistrict contest winners announced AWARDS from page A1 Theyve forgot about the citizens who are requesting the change and the 50cent charge thats added to everyones phone bill for those purposes. Council member Roger Brooks informed the council that, as he understood it, the county is going to change their policy, and there was a delay to the county to take action because it was tabled until the next BOCC meeting. Council member Richard Woodham requested that the city pursue a $2.5 million ad valorem tax for the city. Its been two years since weve talked about it and never did anything about it, said Woodham. Weve got no money to work with and it makes no sense. If we could have a little extra money to do what we need to, we wouldnt need to borrow money now. Council member Lawrence Cloud said that he backed the idea of pursuing an ad valorem tax. Its not a popular topic of discussion, but its become necessary to generate more income, and were just not generating enough income, said Cloud. Its our best way and probably our only way, so Im for it. Woodham said one of the reasons he was pushing for it was better bene ts for their employees. Our employees need it, said Woodham. If one of our boys in blue got hurt, theres barely enough to last them a couple of weeks in a hospital. People put us in these positions to work for the city and $2.5 million would really help. City Attorney Lucus Taylor advised Woodham that his motion be that the city starts the process of looking into what is required to start an ad valorem tax and the council approved of the motion with a vote of 4 to 1, with Brooks voting no. I oppose it, said Brooks. Its an unfair tax to citizens that are already paying so much to the county. Theres just got to be a better way to create a tax that will make it to where everyone will have to only pay a little bit here and there. Council approved of the contract with Waste Pro pending an issue is changed with the contract. City Clerk Geri Gibson addressed that the contract states that the city be responsible for changing the fuel prices of the contract as fuel prices uctuate. The city has never been responsible for those changes, said Gibson. Its always been them that calculates the uctuation and then presents us with the changes. Taylor agreed that, with the Waste Management contract, it was the company that adjusted the fuel prices based on a nation average and then presented the changes to the city. The council wished to remind everyone about the special called meeting for Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 3 p.m. for the rst reading of the land use change. The planned Dec. 26 meeting has also been rescheduled for Dec. 27 at 5 p.m. for the second reading of the ordinance. City Attorney Lucus Taylor explained at an earlier meeting that some commercial property in town that the landowner wished to amend to where it is under the citys comprehensive plan instead of the countys comprehensive plan. Its just moving it from the county comp plan, which is slightly more limited than the citys comp plan, to the citys comp plan, said Taylor. Since its presently under the countys comp plan, the county is able to dictate whats being built on city property.

Call 638-0212. Wednesday, December 14, 2011 For Southern Baptists, the name Lottie Moon is synonymous with Christmas Mission offering. In addition to the year round gifts to support missions both domestic and foreign, the gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering go directly to foreign missions with no administrative costs deducted. Some jokingly say, Havent we got Lottie paid off yet? But we continue to happily support this great cause. This past Sunday, our church honored Miss Helen Mahs by naming our annual drive, the Helen Mahs/Lottie Moon Christmas offering. For many years, Miss Mahs has served as president of the womens mission group and faithfully promoted missions. In the past thirteen years, First Baptist Church Bonifay has given $164,500 through the Lottie Moon Christmas offering alone thanks to Miss Mahs diligence in keeping the cause before us. Why is it called Lottie Moon? It would take a lot of church history to tell the whole story, but Miss Moon who grew up in a well-to-do family on a tobacco plantation in Virginia and trained to be a teacher went to China as a Missionary to the Chinese people in the late 1800s and early 1900s. During her 40 years there she was able to break through some of the cultural barriers and carry the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Chinese by making friends, rst with the children. They called her the teacake lady as that is how she earned their con dence and ultimately their mothers and nally their fathers. Miss Moon used all her income to feed starving people until she herself starved to death. She died aboard ship on her way home on Dec 24. 1912. A Lottie Moon house show casing FBCs missions emphasis is open daily from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. in the former S.L. Howell home for the public to view memorabilia, listen to DVDs, and learn areas where we are directly involved in foreign missions. Though we havent gone to China as Lottie Moon did, many of our church members have gone to Honduras and Peru. Jim Wells spent the better part of two years in Peru and other Holmes County Baptists have gone on mission trips there. We have an ongoing mission to Honduras where members of FBC congregation have helped build a hospital and a church. Last summer, Jordan Belser went to Calcutta, India to minister to women caught up in human slavery traf c with a program called Project Rescue. For two summers, she went to the Philippines and worked in an orphanage and is planning to return there in January. Brittney, the pastors daughter and her husband are in Indonesia now with their gospel band Bread of Stone and their The Light Project ministry. Miss Helen Mahs, a retired teacher, has devoted much time to the promotion of mission giving. She is not a Holmes County native, but came here in 1950 with her parents when they decided to move to Florida. Due to Mr. Mahss heart condition he needed to avoid the snow shoveling required in Michigan so after researching where to settle, they headed to Jackson County. However, they were rerouted via Chipley as U.S. Highway 231 was being renovated. While in Chipley, he walked down town, talked to a few people, and learned of a place for sale. They looked it over, made a deal with the owners who had already moved to Panama City, and within 3 days, they were in residence. Helen had just attained her masters degree in education and secured a job in Bonifay Elementary, the old school building, so she never was able to return to Michigan as she went to work the next day. Not liking the primitive conditions in the old school building, she resigned after a year and started working for HRS. After eight and a half years she returned to education, serving for several years as coordinator for special education in Holmes, Walton, and Washington counties. When those programs were mainstreamed, she taught in Vernon Elementary School until her retirement in 1987. Since that time she has served as a literacy volunteer and tutored struggling students and other school related activities. She served as Chaplin for Bonifay Garden Club for a number of years. She was also secretary and treasurer for the Holmes County Retired Educators. In fact, we have had to disband as Mrs. Doris Scott, who died recently, was unable to continue and Miss Mahs health failed Even with failing health, Helen at 88 continues to teach her ladies Sunday School class, most of whom are also experiencing failing health. In spite of that, she continues to support her favorite cause, the Lottie Moon Christmas offering for foreign missions. She feels highly honored to be named in the same emphasis with such a revered person as Miss Lottie Moon. The Lottie Moon House is open daily from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. through the end of December for group or individual tours. Call the church of ce at 547-2420 to arrange a tour after hours or just drop in and browse. Helen Mahs honored with Lottie Moon plaque HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Dear Editor: I am writing in response to your article, surviving greyhounds headed for new homes, Dec. 5. Kudos to Stacie Strickland, Linda Cliffel, and to all at The Sunburst Project for the care they have provided to the greyhounds found in the most dire of situations. It is heartwarming to read that greyhounds Grady and Quake are now on their way to well-deserved new lives in loving homes. There is increased public awareness of the cruelty inherent in greyhound racing. We cannot fathom our dogs enduring inhumane con nement day in and day out, or facing the risk of injury and death racing around an oval just so people can bet on them. We do not consider our dogs as investments to be valued only as long as they generate a pro t. Nor can we imagine abandoning our dogs or not taking care of them if they become injured or as they age. That is no way to treat a dog. I have adopted beloved ex-racing greyhounds since 1997, and I am a board member of GREY2K USA, a national nonpro t organization that works to end the cruelty of dog racing. For more information, please visit www.grey2kusa.org. Caryn Wood Board of Directors To the Editor: Republicans circumvented the debt reduction talks for two months, never having any intention of compromise or working toward reducing the de cit. Their goal was to sabotage any deal and keep the economy as weak as possible until Election Day. Surprise, surprise! The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. The good news is that there are signs the economy is turning around. The stock market just had its fth largest one-day gain ever. U.S. companies who are sitting on piles of cash are in good shape to lead in the economic recovery. Revisions on job reports offer more good news. There has been privatesector job creation for 21 months in a row. After years of plummeting home prices, the market is showing signs of a turnaround. The Christmas retail season is off to a good start with customers saying they are spending more this year. Car sales are up and the restaurants are packed again. Oh, and the unemployment rate just fell to 8.6 percent. What are Republicans and their presidential hopefuls going to feed the American public this time? Twist the truth about the positive gures, pretend they dont exist. Ron Lowe Nevada City, Calif. Dear Editor, Christmas is not ours but out Lord Jesus Christs. Thus the name Christmas. He allows us to celebrate it and it is an honor to do so! He gives us the choice to praise and celebrate Him, or not. He gives us the breath to be able to do so, or not. He gives us the voice to proclaim His birth and His name, or not He gives us life to choose Him as Lord and Savior, or not He gives us a mind to think of Him, or not He gives us words to know Him, or not He gives us a will to accept Him, or not He gives us a body to work for Him, or not He gives us a talent to use for Him, or not He gives us Heaven so that we can go be with Him one day, OR NOT! Celebrate Jesus this Christmas season. After all it is His birthday! Merry Christmas!

The Chipola Auto motive program utilizes an industry-based curriculum in partnership with local dealerships, shops, and an advisory committee to pro vide students with the com petitive edge in this ever changing high-tech training environment. The Chipola program also was named a Bellweth er runner-up in 2006 and Floridas Best Business & Education partnership in 2004. Chipolas automotive technology program is cen tered on todays students. Instructor John Gardner says, Todays technologi cally savvy students grew up with computers, cell phones and video games. If we want a successful program in todays I want it now, microwave society our pro grams must evolve as well. In order to do so we had to reinvent the wheel. Gard ner said outdated training videos and materials with voice over and slow anima tion were not holding the students attention. He and his assistant Chase Vlieg formed a partnership with the entertainment industry to create a new fast-paced Infotainment training system. Infobase Learning, Films Media Group agreed to work with Chipola, ACI and lm experts Brenton Productions to produce an ASE Automotive Training Video Series. Brenton pro duces several successful TV shows, including Two Guys Garage, Truck Uni verse, Hi Rev Tuners, Sha detree Mechanic, Crank & Chrome and Wounded War rier Series. The Chipola instructors starred in the new training series with help from indus try partners Auto Value and A-Tech Automotive Train ing Systems. Gardner says, We created the rst ever ASE Certication series written, scripted, and on screen talent by two prac ticing automotive technol ogy instructors with over 22 years of combined ex perience earning the Auto motive Service Excellence (ASE) stamp of approval. Each segment contains: Hands on Demonstrations, Parts Identication, Theory of Operation, Professional ism Dialogue, Motivational Tips, ASE Preparation & Five ASE Style Questions. The no uff informative vid eos are 3-10 minutes each, and designed to be utilized on internet based programs or stand alone DVDs. Gardner says the series was strategically scripted and produced to meet the needs of todays automotive students, instructors and technicians. All videos are quick and to the point, with multiple shots at different lo cations, positive, bright and upbeat. The DVDs/curricu lum package was designed to meet the needs of all three types of learners: vi sual, audio and kinesthetic. All content includes anima tion and graphics, close ups of components and parts la beling, ASE questions with highlighted answers, dem onstrations explained ver bally with all parts labeled. All live demonstrations with tools and equipment involve the audience in the learning process. Any insti tution can implement the DVDs into their current program. ASE and NATEF correlations are an inte gral part of the curriculum package. Students and in structors can learn theory together and then reinforce the content technically with hands-on experience. Gard ner says the impact of the DVD series has been nation wide. Automotive publishers Infobase Learning, Films on Demand Goodheart-Wilcox, Delmar, Cengage Learning and Pearson are currently developing their automo tive curricula with this sys tem, either by emulation or direct utilization. Gardner says, Our goal is to train tomorrows workforce in a relevant and applicable way meeting the needs of pres ent and future industries with teaching methods that reach todays students.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Hooked on Outdoors MEME SMITH | Special to Florida Freedom From left are Alex Smith, his brother Campbell and dad Joe Smith with Alexs rst deer. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Joe Smith and his wife, MeMe, live in Pensacola and own and operate two pediatric outpatient therapy clinics in the Florida Panhandle. Joe grew up in Bay County, following in the footsteps of his dad on hunting and shing trips. Hes now teaching his own young sons about the outdoors, including hunting and being safe. Alex is 11 and the oldest. Joe recently took him on a dove hunt in north Escambia County, where he bagged his rst dove. While visiting family in Bay County over Thanksgiving holidays, Alex sat in a deer blind next to his dad and downed his rst deer a four-point buck. Joe said the whole family was along, and it was an experience they will always remember. The meat has already been processed and will be used by family. Even though Alex and his younger brother Campbell, who is 7, are too young to take a hunter safety course, Joe talks to his sons about deer and other wildlife and the need to practice safety. Theyve carried BB guns and we let them shoot at targets, but weve always talked about keeping the guns pointed in a safe direction, and to treat each gun like its loaded, Smith said. And, we wear our hunter orange. No question but eventually both boys will take the hunter safety course. Shortly after their birth Joe said his parents, who still live in Panama City, purchased both boys a lifetime Florida Sportsmans License. When the boys come of age, theyll never have to purchase a hunting or shing license in Florida. Under Florida law, any person born on or after July 1, 1975, must complete a hunter safety course before purchasing a hunting license. Licenses are required beginning at age 16. Children under age 16 may hunt with a parent or adult supervisor and are not required to take the hunter safety course. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) recently released data that shows hunting is one of the safest recreational pursuits. The survey looked at injury rates for hunters and 28 other recreational activities. Topping the list for safe activities was overnight camping, then billiards, followed by hunting. Joe Smith realizes the value of hunter safety in the classroom, but hes giving his kids an invaluable head start. Without knowing it, hes one of the reasons hunting ranks high as a safe activity. Information about the hunter safety course offered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is available at MyFWC. com/huntersafety. Its never too early to teach hunting safety Freshwater shing on the rivers is fantastic. It also could be good in ponds; I just havent heard from pond shermen. Fishermen are reporting some good catches of bream and bass from the rivers close to the bays, especially over on the big river the Apalachicola. Lake Wimico and its tributaries, such as Indian Bayou, Depot Creek, Double Bayou, Columbus Bayou, Sowell and Johnson, all will be good for bream, crappie and bass. In Depot Creek, crappie should be under every tree top in deep water. Crappie minnows or crappie jigs should entice them to come back to the beach with you. On Holmes Creek, the suckers are biting, and so are crappie. Some ladies for several days have been catching crappie with minnows that they catch right out of the creek. They use crackers to attract the minnows. They place a four-sided minnow net on the bottom in shallow water, and after a few have started eating the crackers, they simply lift the net with a stiff pole. After several tries, they have enough minnows to go shing. This saves money on minnows, which are hard to buy in this area. Winston Chester let the cat out of the bag last week when he went shing with Bill Shields and Bill Allen, so I might as well add to this sh tale. Anyone who caught the show Panhandle Outdoors saw where they were catching speckled trout. Simply leave Bay City Lodge, go down the river to Four Tree Cutoff, run up Little St. Marks and cut down the big St. Marks River around Goat Island, and you are in speckled trout paradise. With this cold front coming in, this spot should be loaded over the weekend. If bass is your target, any of the sloughs upriver from East River will hold them this time of year. With the rivers and sloughs so low, bank shing might not be the place you would want to launch your worm or crankbait. I shed one of these sloughs many years ago with a fellow, and he shed right in the middle of the slough with a worm. We had a ne old time. I would like to get back to some of this type of shing just as soon as I catch all the red sh here in the bay. Wednesday, December 14, 2011 Page A6 By Tina Harbuck Florida Freedom Newspapers More than a dozen hunters entered their kills in the Boar Squirrel Blast Off in Red Bay Dec. 3. The hunt began at daylight, and by lunch 15 hunters had brought in their squirrel kills at the Red Bay Grocery, said tournament organizer Trey Nick, owner of Nicks Seafood. Hunters were allowed to go wherever they wanted to hunt, but they had to be back at the Red Bay Grocery by noon for scoring. Up to 10 squirrels could be turned in for scoring on a point system. Each squirrel was worth three points, with one-point bonuses for headshots and one per male squirrel. Winner of the event was Allen White. Second place went to Guy Ramsey, while Nathan Hendrickson placed third and Kevin Henderson, fourth. Youth winner was Trapper Ramsey.

Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net WASHINGTON (AP) Last years BP oil spill probably wont push the troubled blue n tuna Gulf of Mexico population over the edge as some scientists had worried, a federal analysis shows. Of all the potential damage from the 172 million gallon spill in April 2010, scientists had been most concerned about how the oil spill would harm an already over shed species of large tuna. Thats because about onefth of the spawning habitat where the Gulfs baby tuna were living was coated with oil, according to satellite records. Tuna less than a year old are most vulnerable to pollution. An analysis by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, using two different projections from computer models, says that at most, such a spill probably would result in a 4 percent reduction in future spawning of the sh, but probably far less. Blue sh tuna is considered one of the Gulfs signature species. A recent summit in Houston examined the Gulfs health, including the governments restoration plans and the tunas fate. It appears so far that the impact on the larval population is relatively small, said Clay Porch, director of sustainable sheries for NOAAs Southeast Fisheries Science Center in Miami. The agencys analysis, which was mentioned in two pages of a 114-page government update on overall tuna health released in May, is based on an assumption that 1 in 5 baby tuna was killed or unable to reproduce in the future because thats the size of the spill in the spawning area. That 20 percent potential loss of year-old tuna translates to 4 percent of the overall tuna population in the future. Overall population gures also have to factor in the fact that in general many baby tuna at that age die naturally. But that is probably way too high a gure, Porch said in an interview. Instead of 20 percent of baby tuna being harmed, more recent analysis yet to be published said it should be 11 percent or maybe even 5 percent, he said. Those gures should be reduced even more for the overall future population of tuna, down nearer to 2 percent. At most that number should be 1 in 9 or even in 1 in 20 deaths of baby tuna, and thats only the effect on one year for the longlived tuna. Those smaller gures are based on larval surveys that have not been released publicly because of a potential court case with BP over damages from the spill, and more simulations that are conditioned on real data, Porch said. Porch said its unlikely that the effect on tuna stock would hit 4 percent and it is not an additional major source of stress on the overall population of the blue n tuna in the Gulf. Other work on baby tuna health will be published in peer-reviewed science journals. But thats only the young. So far NOAA doesnt know how the spill affected adults and whether adults of all ages were killed or made infertile in massive numbers that could have a bigger effect on the overall population than the oiling of one years worth of young, Porch said. Boris Worm, a sheries professor at Dalhousie University in Canada who has warned of problems with tuna populations in the past, said the NOAA gures are within the yearly variations of mortality for tuna. So it will be a bad year, but not a catastrophic year, Worm said. This wouldnt push them over the brink. Feds: blue n tuna probably OK after BP oil spill

SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com A Section By Brad Milner Florida Freedom Newspapers ORLANDO Chipleys state football championship dreams were shattered in the span of less than seven minutes on Friday. Jefferson County (9-5) capitalized on two turnovers in the third quarter and broke open a close game to win the inaugural Rural Class 1A crown 47-13 at the Citrus Bowl. Chipley nished 11-3 and defeated three district champions in advancing to it rst state title game. It couldnt pull off a fourth win over a district champion in the biggest game, which slipped away quickly after halftime. The teams were tied 7-7 after a rst half lled with turnovers and missed opportunities. Chipley didnt score any points in three of four trips inside the Jefferson County 20-yard line in the opening 24 minutes. Unable to secure any momentum, Chipley was overwhelmed thereafter and held to 198 total yards. Jefferson Countys Alphonso Footman, who led all rushers with 130 yards, scored on a 13-yard run to give his team a 14-7 lead with 8:05 left in the third quarter. Chipley stalled on its next possession and a bad snap went through punter Fletcher Dilmores legs to give Jefferson County the ball at the 22. Quarterback Lenorris Footman, 8 for 12 passing with 145 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, scored on the next play and Jefferson County led 21-7 with 4:18 to go in the third quarter. Ryan McIntrye fumbled on the next Chipley series and Lenorris Footman found Ladarian Smiley for 31 yards on the ensuing play for a 27-7 lead with 3:54 showing. Smiley wasnt done, returning a punt 72 yards for a score to turn a close game into a rout with 1:32 to go in the quarter. He grabbed a 41-yard pass in the fourth quarter for Jefferson Countys nal touchdown and nished with 116 yards on ve receptions. Chipley dominated the rst half with almost 17 minutes of possession time. It turned the ball over on downs on the games rst drive that encompassed 65 yards and stalled at the Jefferson County 6. Chipley also lost a fumble at the 12 and missed a 25-yard eld goal on the nal play of the half. Chipley tied the game 7-7 on Kobe McCrarys 3-yard run with 5:15 to play in the second quarter. McCrary paced Chipley with 109 yards rushing, while Ryan McIntyre added 80 on the ground. McIntyre scored from 6 yards to cap the games scoring in the fourth quarter. Jefferson County, which racked up 423 total yards, went ahead 7-0 on Revonte Robinsons 6-yard run a minute into the second quarter. Jefferson County also sputtered with three turnovers in the rst half, including the two interceptions. Alphonso Footman lost a fumble inside the Chipley 20. Jefferson County won its sixth state championship. Chipley still is seeking a rst.

By Cathrine Lamb Editorial Assistant clamb@chipleypaper.com Kurtis Ebenezer Busch, also known as Kurt Busch, was red from Penske Racing after some choice words and his actions after a race. What is in the future for Kurt? Will he go full-time in NHRA? Will he be in a different car with a new sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series? With a total of 12 years in NASCAR and 400 races, 24 wins, 6 chase appearances and 7,148 laps led, what team in its right mind wouldnt want him, you ask. Well, there are things to consider, like his actions and language when he doesnt get his way. The team owners have to think about this. Sure, his stats look good and it would look great on the team to have a driver with those stats racing for you. On the down side, it would look bad if the driver throws a tantrum like a small child when things arent going his way. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens in February.

One pair of unsterilized dogs, with their offspring, can result in 4,372 puppies in 7 years. Statistics also show that only one out of nine of these animals nd a good home, leaving the rest to suffer abandonment and/or euthanasia. For years, pet owners have questioned whether or not to spay or neuter their pets. However, history and research show that there are many pros to having your pets spayed or neutered. Whether your pets are kept indoors or out, there are many health and behavioral bene ts associated with spaying and neutering, says Dr. Lynn Ruoff, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Spaying and neutering pets results in fewer reproductive health problems and makes the treatment of epilepsy, diabetes, and other diseases much easier, notes Ruoff. Ruoff adds, Spayed pets will not develop pyometra, or pus in the uterus, and they have a greatly decreased risk of developing mammary gland tumors. Neutered pets are less likely to develop testicular tumors or an enlarged prostate. Another big bene t can be peace of mind a spayed or neutered pet is far less likely to leave the yard in search of other animals. In both male and female pets, sterilization makes them far less likely to roam, which tends to safeguard against injuries due to ghts and accidents, adds Ruoff. Neutered males are less likely to mark their territory by urinating in the house and will not be inclined to wander off in search of a mate. Spayed females are also less likely to wander and will not attract males who will ght over a female in heat. In addition, hunting, guarding, and other skills are actually improved in spayed and neutered dogs because they are not distracted by hormonal urges, Ruoff believes. Pet owners concerned with the pain and cost of the actual procedure can be put at ease by talking with their veterinarian. Ruoff explains that spaying and neutering, while considered major surgery and performed under general anesthesia, involve little risk in young, healthy pets. In the past, it was believed that puppies and kittens should not be spayed or neutered until they were at least six months of age. However, recent studies conclude that sterilization of pets as young as three months of age does not increase the risks associated with surgery or the number of long-term complications. Animals also recover from these procedures much faster than one might expect. Stitches are usually removed 10 days after the surgery, until which time pet owners are advised to keep the surgical area clean and to keep the animal calm. Most pets recover within a week or less, often not requiring additional pain medication. If cost has been keeping you from having a pet spayed or neutered, it is wise to consider the expenses associated with the alternative. Without sterilization, you may nd yourself paying to treat pyometra, mammary gland tumors, prostatic enlargement, or injuries caused by automobiles. You cant put a price tag on a family pet that becomes lost or killed, adds Ruoff.

Unconditional Love To love someone unconditionally means that ones love is absolute and is without limits. Human emotions are such that we usually distance ourselves from those with unpleasant attitudes or behaviors, so at times loving someone regardless of their actions or feelings toward us is of this could be a married couple they may be so much in love on their wedding day, but later get a divorce because they no longer care for each other. Unconditional love is a blessing from our Heavenly Father and involves forgiveness, understanding, wisdom, and children, or a childs love for their parents can be unconditional, and Gods love for His chosen people is also unconditional. The Bible tells us that there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God, which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord. Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and to God. N.I.V. Ephesians 5:2 Children across America and around the world are told by their parents one of the greatest lies ever told: On December 25th, Santa Claus comes, and if they are good he will bring them a bunch of stuff they wont know what to do with, as the gifts under the tree represents the parents fantasy. What is not told, is that around 700 B.C., (thats 700 years before Christ would be born of a virgin in Bethlehem) God spoke through His prophet and led Isaiah to write, Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14 NKJV). A little more than 700 years after Isaiah wrote those words, about 50 A.D., a tax collector by the name of Matthew, who had left everything to follow Christ, wrote, Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins. So all this was done that it might be ful lled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, God with us, (Matthew 1:18-23 NKJV). Later, the Apostle John recorded for us the words that Christ Himself spoke: Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. ... I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me, (John 14:1-6). If you truly desire to be blessed and be a blessing to others, dont waste your time and the wonderful minds of little children teaching them to look for a ctional character who will always disappoint them. Stop the lies (Revelation 20:10), and begin to educate your children and neighbors about the truth of the Only Begotten Son of God who has purchased the most awesome gift (John 3:16) that anyone could even imagine, Eternal Life through Jesus Christ, for whom Dec. 25 is named. No, we do not know when He will return, but we do know this: The writings of Isaiah and many other Old Testament Prophets were ful lled when Christ came and was born of a virgin. Also, as Jesus said, He will return for His bride, and He is the One that we should anticipate coming. As mentioned in other articles, for the person who is born again, Christmas is not to be celebrated just one day a year, but lived in a wonderful anticipation that Christ will soon come, not in a sleigh, but with a shout (1 Thessalonians 4:16), and a call to all that are His. This is what I know for sure. He could come before Dec. 25. Christ Himself gave us this hint about that day as He said, But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the ood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the ood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be, (Matthew 24:36-51). Its time not to be nice, but to be right with Him, for He is coming for His Bride, the born again, bought by the blood, repentant Church (Luke 13:3; John 3:3-21).

I cannot say enough about these wonderful, hardworking people, said Mayor Eddie Sims. Theyve been a strong asset to this city working diligently for many years. It is an honor and a privilege to recognize them for all theyve done. Awarded was Jason Carver for ve years of service, Dennis Brunk for ve years of service, Mitchell Vickers for ve years of service, Sabrina Porter for 15 years of service, Frances Cline for 20 years of service, Sara Ward for 20 years of service, Dale Roberts for 20 years of service and Betty Tadlock for 25 years of service. Addressing the visitors, Lavitra Brook, a citizen of Bonifay, wished the council to address issues with her water bill. Ive got to complain about the water bill, said Brook. Ive been living here since the 80s, and Ive never had a water bill over $100. Now Ive received a bill for $107 and $214 in the last two months. Theres no leaks, and I dont know why thered be such an outrageous water bill. The city agreed to continue investigating the matter with her. Brook also added that she wasnt the only one on her block who has had a recent outrageous spike in the water bill. The city approved to take action against the Trant property for refusal to address multiple clean-up notices. The city approved to take the cost of cleaning the property and all expenses involved and put a lean on the property. The issue with renaming Bay Avenue to Martin Luther King Avenue was tabled because of inactivity by the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners. Weve been in a dilemma with the county about renaming the street; weve refused to pay, said Sims.

National Collection Week is wrapping up for the worlds largest Christmas project of its kind Operation Christmas Child where participants ll empty shoeboxes with items for kids suffering from natural disaster, war, terrorism, famine and poverty. Soon, these shoeboxes will be delivered to 8.5 million kids worldwide. For families who havent yet packed their gift of hope, its not too late. Many local families are choosing to pack shoebox gifts virtually through Build a Box, an online giving tool. Its a simple and quick, yet meaningful, way to impact a child in need. Volunteers can visit the projects website at www. samaritanspurse.org/occ, select a childs age and gender, shop through an online selection of gifts, pack them in an empty shoe box, and nish it off with a note of encouragement. Then, through tracking technology, donors can follow the box to the destination country where it will be hand-delivered. Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritans Purse, uses simple giftlled shoeboxes to let hurting children know they are loved and not forgotten. For many of these children, the simple shoebox will be the rst gift they have ever received. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has hand-delivered more than 86 million giftlled shoeboxes to needy children in more than 130 countries. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, call (407) 8523727 or visit www. samaritanspurse.org/occ.

Christmas celebration coverage Patriots invite KrisAnne Hall back Web-savvy volunteers pack boxes of hope By Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com The Tri-County Community Council is facing cuts in the near future for Holmes, Washington and Bay counties transportation programs. Holmes is facing just more than $5,700 in cuts, which may mean the end of their transportation program. The same can be said for Washington County, with a cut of exactly $6,600. Bay will be cut $3,500. According to TCCC, these cuts will be made within the rst six months of 2012. The only county looking at an increase is Walton County, in the amount of $2,700. A program that will be cut out of Holmes, Washington, Jackson and Walton counties entirely is the ARRA Weatherization Assistance Program, which will of cially end on March 31, 2012. Many are speculating that the Weatherization Assistance Program will revert back to old funding levels, prior to the ARRA stimulus funding for the past three years, said the executive director for TCCC, Joel Paul. At the end of March 2012, Tri-County will have weatherized over 1,100 homes and spent a little over $7 million for the three-year contract. The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) grant amount is still unknown for 2012, but the forecast is for cuts in this program also. The Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) budget has been cut by $166,609. The federally funded HEAD START Program also received a 1.5 percent decrease beginning Dec. 1 of this year, or an estimated $15,000 per year.TCCC: Cuts to affect area programs See AWARDS A2CECILIA SPEARS | The Times-AdvertiserAwarded at the Dec. 13 Bonifay City Council meeting for ve years of service were Jason Carver, Dennis Brunk and Mitchell Vickers.

Christmas EVENTSWednesday, December 14, 2011BETHLEHEM Bethlehems FFA chapter competed in the subdistrict contest Dec. 6. Tyler Walker placed rst in tractor driving; Stacy Collins placed second in prepared speaking; Sarah Covell placed third in creed speaking. In addition, the opening/ closing ceremony team won rst place. Members of Bethlehems team were Lauren Drake, Macey Thomas, Josie Dampier, Bekah Dixon, Joshua Trammell, Caleb Brannon and Gene Myers.FFA subdistrict contest winners announced AWARDS from page A1Theyve forgot about the citizens who are requesting the change and the 50cent charge thats added to everyones phone bill for those purposes. Council member Roger Brooks informed the council that, as he understood it, the county is going to change their policy, and there was a delay to the county to take action because it was tabled until the next BOCC meeting. Council member Richard Woodham requested that the city pursue a $2.5 million ad valorem tax for the city. Its been two years since weve talked about it and never did anything about it, said Woodham. Weve got no money to work with and it makes no sense. If we could have a little extra money to do what we need to, we wouldnt need to borrow money now. Council member Lawrence Cloud said that he backed the idea of pursuing an ad valorem tax. Its not a popular topic of discussion, but its become necessary to generate more income, and were just not generating enough income, said Cloud. Its our best way and probably our only way, so Im for it. Woodham said one of the reasons he was pushing for it was better bene ts for their employees. Our employees need it, said Woodham. If one of our boys in blue got hurt, theres barely enough to last them a couple of weeks in a hospital. People put us in these positions to work for the city and $2.5 million would really help. City Attorney Lucus Taylor advised Woodham that his motion be that the city starts the process of looking into what is required to start an ad valorem tax and the council approved of the motion with a vote of 4 to 1, with Brooks voting no. I oppose it, said Brooks. Its an unfair tax to citizens that are already paying so much to the county. Theres just got to be a better way to create a tax that will make it to where everyone will have to only pay a little bit here and there. Council approved of the contract with Waste Pro pending an issue is changed with the contract. City Clerk Geri Gibson addressed that the contract states that the city be responsible for changing the fuel prices of the contract as fuel prices uctuate. The city has never been responsible for those changes, said Gibson. Its always been them that calculates the uctuation and then presents us with the changes. Taylor agreed that, with the Waste Management contract, it was the company that adjusted the fuel prices based on a nation average and then presented the changes to the city. The council wished to remind everyone about the special called meeting for Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 3 p.m. for the rst reading of the land use change. The planned Dec. 26 meeting has also been rescheduled for Dec. 27 at 5 p.m. for the second reading of the ordinance. City Attorney Lucus Taylor explained at an earlier meeting that some commercial property in town that the landowner wished to amend to where it is under the citys comprehensive plan instead of the countys comprehensive plan. Its just moving it from the county comp plan, which is slightly more limited than the citys comp plan, to the citys comp plan, said Taylor. Since its presently under the countys comp plan, the county is able to dictate whats being built on city property.

Call 638-0212. Wednesday, December 14, 2011For Southern Baptists, the name Lottie Moon is synonymous with Christmas Mission offering. In addition to the year round gifts to support missions both domestic and foreign, the gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering go directly to foreign missions with no administrative costs deducted. Some jokingly say, Havent we got Lottie paid off yet? But we continue to happily support this great cause. This past Sunday, our church honored Miss Helen Mahs by naming our annual drive, the Helen Mahs/Lottie Moon Christmas offering. For many years, Miss Mahs has served as president of the womens mission group and faithfully promoted missions. In the past thirteen years, First Baptist Church Bonifay has given $164,500 through the Lottie Moon Christmas offering alone thanks to Miss Mahs diligence in keeping the cause before us. Why is it called Lottie Moon? It would take a lot of church history to tell the whole story, but Miss Moon who grew up in a well-to-do family on a tobacco plantation in Virginia and trained to be a teacher went to China as a Missionary to the Chinese people in the late 1800s and early 1900s. During her 40 years there she was able to break through some of the cultural barriers and carry the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Chinese by making friends, rst with the children. They called her the teacake lady as that is how she earned their con dence and ultimately their mothers and nally their fathers. Miss Moon used all her income to feed starving people until she herself starved to death. She died aboard ship on her way home on Dec 24. 1912. A Lottie Moon house show casing FBCs missions emphasis is open daily from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. in the former S.L. Howell home for the public to view memorabilia, listen to DVDs, and learn areas where we are directly involved in foreign missions. Though we havent gone to China as Lottie Moon did, many of our church members have gone to Honduras and Peru. Jim Wells spent the better part of two years in Peru and other Holmes County Baptists have gone on mission trips there. We have an ongoing mission to Honduras where members of FBC congregation have helped build a hospital and a church. Last summer, Jordan Belser went to Calcutta, India to minister to women caught up in human slavery traf c with a program called Project Rescue. For two summers, she went to the Philippines and worked in an orphanage and is planning to return there in January. Brittney, the pastors daughter and her husband are in Indonesia now with their gospel band Bread of Stone and their The Light Project ministry. Miss Helen Mahs, a retired teacher, has devoted much time to the promotion of mission giving. She is not a Holmes County native, but came here in 1950 with her parents when they decided to move to Florida. Due to Mr. Mahss heart condition he needed to avoid the snow shoveling required in Michigan so after researching where to settle, they headed to Jackson County. However, they were rerouted via Chipley as U.S. Highway 231 was being renovated. While in Chipley, he walked down town, talked to a few people, and learned of a place for sale. They looked it over, made a deal with the owners who had already moved to Panama City, and within 3 days, they were in residence. Helen had just attained her masters degree in education and secured a job in Bonifay Elementary, the old school building, so she never was able to return to Michigan as she went to work the next day. Not liking the primitive conditions in the old school building, she resigned after a year and started working for HRS. After eight and a half years she returned to education, serving for several years as coordinator for special education in Holmes, Walton, and Washington counties. When those programs were mainstreamed, she taught in Vernon Elementary School until her retirement in 1987. Since that time she has served as a literacy volunteer and tutored struggling students and other school related activities. She served as Chaplin for Bonifay Garden Club for a number of years. She was also secretary and treasurer for the Holmes County Retired Educators. In fact, we have had to disband as Mrs. Doris Scott, who died recently, was unable to continue and Miss Mahs health failed Even with failing health, Helen at 88 continues to teach her ladies Sunday School class, most of whom are also experiencing failing health. In spite of that, she continues to support her favorite cause, the Lottie Moon Christmas offering for foreign missions. She feels highly honored to be named in the same emphasis with such a revered person as Miss Lottie Moon. The Lottie Moon House is open daily from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. through the end of December for group or individual tours.

Kudos to Stacie Strickland, Linda Cliffel, and to all at The Sunburst Project for the care they have provided to the greyhounds found in the most dire of situations. It is heartwarming to read that greyhounds Grady and Quake are now on their way to well-deserved new lives in loving homes. There is increased public awareness of the cruelty inherent in greyhound racing. We cannot fathom our dogs enduring inhumane con nement day in and day out, or facing the risk of injury and death racing around an oval just so people can bet on them. We do not consider our dogs as investments to be valued only as long as they generate a pro t. Nor can we imagine abandoning our dogs or not taking care of them if they become injured or as they age. That is no way to treat a dog. I have adopted beloved ex-racing greyhounds since 1997, and I am a board member of GREY2K USA, a national nonpro t organization that works to end the cruelty of dog racing. For more information, please visit www.grey2kusa.org. Caryn Wood Board of DirectorsTo the Editor: Republicans circumvented the debt reduction talks for two months, never having any intention of compromise or working toward reducing the de cit. Their goal was to sabotage any deal and keep the economy as weak as possible until Election Day. Surprise, surprise! The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. The good news is that there are signs the economy is turning around. The stock market just had its fth largest one-day gain ever. U.S. companies who are sitting on piles of cash are in good shape to lead in the economic recovery. Revisions on job reports offer more good news. There has been privatesector job creation for 21 months in a row. After years of plummeting home prices, the market is showing signs of a turnaround. The Christmas retail season is off to a good start with customers saying they are spending more this year. Car sales are up and the restaurants are packed again. Oh, and the unemployment rate just fell to 8.6 percent. What are Republicans and their presidential hopefuls going to feed the American public this time? Twist the truth about the positive gures, pretend they dont exist. Ron Lowe Nevada City, Calif.Dear Editor,Christmas is not ours but out Lord Jesus Christs. Thus the name Christmas. He allows us to celebrate it and it is an honor to do so! He gives us the choice to praise and celebrate Him, or not. He gives us the breath to be able to do so, or not. He gives us the voice to proclaim His birth and His name, or not He gives us life to choose Him as Lord and Savior, or not He gives us a mind to think of Him, or not He gives us words to know Him, or not He gives us a will to accept Him, or not He gives us a body to work for Him, or not He gives us a talent to use for Him, or not He gives us Heaven so that we can go be with Him one day, OR NOT!

Waukesha Street Bonifay, Florida 32425 850-547-5411 2038939 MARIANNA Chipola Colleges Automotive Technology program recently was selected as a nalist for a Bellwether Award in the Workforce Development division. Chipola instructors John Gardner and Chase Vlieg will present an overview of their innovative program at the Community College Futures Assembly set for January 2012 in Orlando. The Chipola Automotive program utilizes an industry-based curriculum in partnership with local dealerships, shops, and an advisory committee to provide students with the competitive edge in this ever changing high-tech training environment. The Chipola program also was named a Bellwether runner-up in 2006 and Floridas Best Business & Education partnership in 2004. Chipolas automotive technology program is centered on todays students. Instructor John Gardner says, Todays technologically savvy students grew up with computers, cell phones and video games. If we want a successful program in todays I want it now, microwave society our programs must evolve as well. In order to do so we had to reinvent the wheel. Gardner said outdated training videos and materials with voice over and slow animation were not holding the students attention. He and his assistant Chase Vlieg formed a partnership with the entertainment industry to create a new fast-paced Infotainment training system. Infobase Learning, Films Media Group agreed to work with Chipola, ACI and lm experts Brenton Productions to produce an ASE Automotive Training Video Series. Brenton produces several successful TV shows, including Two Guys Garage, Truck Universe, Hi Rev Tuners, Shadetree Mechanic, Crank & Chrome and Wounded Warrier Series. The Chipola instructors starred in the new training series with help from industry partners Auto Value and A-Tech Automotive Training Systems. Gardner says, We created the rst ever ASE Certication series written, scripted, and on screen talent by two practicing automotive technology instructors with over 22 years of combined experience earning the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) stamp of approval. Each segment contains: Hands on Demonstrations, Parts Identication, Theory of Operation, Professionalism Dialogue, Motivational Tips, ASE Preparation & Five ASE Style Questions. The no uff informative videos are 3-10 minutes each, and designed to be utilized on internet based programs or stand alone DVDs. Gardner says the series was strategically scripted and produced to meet the needs of todays automotive students, instructors and technicians. All videos are quick and to the point, with multiple shots at different locations, positive, bright and upbeat. The DVDs/curriculum package was designed to meet the needs of all three types of learners: visual, audio and kinesthetic. All content includes animation and graphics, close ups of components and parts labeling, ASE questions with highlighted answers, demonstrations explained verbally with all parts labeled. All live demonstrations with tools and equipment involve the audience in the learning process. Any institution can implement the DVDs into their current program. ASE and NATEF correlations are an integral part of the curriculum package. Students and instructors can learn theory together and then reinforce the content technically with hands-on experience. Gardner says the impact of the DVD series has been nationwide. Automotive publishers Infobase Learning, Films on Demand Goodheart-Wilcox, Delmar, Cengage Learning and Pearson are currently developing their automotive curricula with this system, either by emulation or direct utilization. Gardner says, Our goal is to train tomorrows workforce in a relevant and applicable way meeting the needs of present and future industries with teaching methods that reach todays students.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Hooked on Outdoors MEME SMITH | Special to Florida FreedomFrom left are Alex Smith, his brother Campbell and dad Joe Smith with Alexs rst deer.By Stan KirklandFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Joe Smith and his wife, MeMe, live in Pensacola and own and operate two pediatric outpatient therapy clinics in the Florida Panhandle. Joe grew up in Bay County, following in the footsteps of his dad on hunting and shing trips. Hes now teaching his own young sons about the outdoors, including hunting and being safe. Alex is 11 and the oldest. Joe recently took him on a dove hunt in north Escambia County, where he bagged his rst dove. While visiting family in Bay County over Thanksgiving holidays, Alex sat in a deer blind next to his dad and downed his rst deer a four-point buck. Joe said the whole family was along, and it was an experience they will always remember. The meat has already been processed and will be used by family. Even though Alex and his younger brother Campbell, who is 7, are too young to take a hunter safety course, Joe talks to his sons about deer and other wildlife and the need to practice safety. Theyve carried BB guns and we let them shoot at targets, but weve always talked about keeping the guns pointed in a safe direction, and to treat each gun like its loaded, Smith said. And, we wear our hunter orange. No question but eventually both boys will take the hunter safety course. Shortly after their birth Joe said his parents, who still live in Panama City, purchased both boys a lifetime Florida Sportsmans License. When the boys come of age, theyll never have to purchase a hunting or shing license in Florida. Under Florida law, any person born on or after July 1, 1975, must complete a hunter safety course before purchasing a hunting license. Licenses are required beginning at age 16. Children under age 16 may hunt with a parent or adult supervisor and are not required to take the hunter safety course. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) recently released data that shows hunting is one of the safest recreational pursuits. The survey looked at injury rates for hunters and 28 other recreational activities. Topping the list for safe activities was overnight camping, then billiards, followed by hunting. Joe Smith realizes the value of hunter safety in the classroom, but hes giving his kids an invaluable head start. Without knowing it, hes one of the reasons hunting ranks high as a safe activity. Information about the hunter safety course offered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is available at MyFWC. com/huntersafety.Its never too early to teach hunting safety Freshwater shing on the rivers is fantastic. It also could be good in ponds; I just havent heard from pond shermen. Fishermen are reporting some good catches of bream and bass from the rivers close to the bays, especially over on the big river the Apalachicola. Lake Wimico and its tributaries, such as Indian Bayou, Depot Creek, Double Bayou, Columbus Bayou, Sowell and Johnson, all will be good for bream, crappie and bass. In Depot Creek, crappie should be under every tree top in deep water. Crappie minnows or crappie jigs should entice them to come back to the beach with you. On Holmes Creek, the suckers are biting, and so are crappie. Some ladies for several days have been catching crappie with minnows that they catch right out of the creek. They use crackers to attract the minnows. They place a four-sided minnow net on the bottom in shallow water, and after a few have started eating the crackers, they simply lift the net with a stiff pole. After several tries, they have enough minnows to go shing. This saves money on minnows, which are hard to buy in this area. Winston Chester let the cat out of the bag last week when he went shing with Bill Shields and Bill Allen, so I might as well add to this sh tale. Anyone who caught the show Panhandle Outdoors saw where they were catching speckled trout. Simply leave Bay City Lodge, go down the river to Four Tree Cutoff, run up Little St. Marks and cut down the big St. Marks River around Goat Island, and you are in speckled trout paradise. With this cold front coming in, this spot should be loaded over the weekend. If bass is your target, any of the sloughs upriver from East River will hold them this time of year. With the rivers and sloughs so low, bank shing might not be the place you would want to launch your worm or crankbait. I shed one of these sloughs many years ago with a fellow, and he shed right in the middle of the slough with a worm. We had a ne old time. I would like to get back to some of this type of shing just as soon as I catch all the red sh here in the bay.Wednesday, December 14, 2011 Page A6By Tina HarbuckFlorida Freedom Newspapers More than a dozen hunters entered their kills in the Boar Squirrel Blast Off in Red Bay Dec. 3. The hunt began at daylight, and by lunch 15 hunters had brought in their squirrel kills at the Red Bay Grocery, said tournament organizer Trey Nick, owner of Nicks Seafood. Hunters were allowed to go wherever they wanted to hunt, but they had to be back at the Red Bay Grocery by noon for scoring. Up to 10 squirrels could be turned in for scoring on a point system. Each squirrel was worth three points, with one-point bonuses for headshots and one per male squirrel. Winner of the event was Allen White. Second place went to Guy Ramsey, while Nathan Hendrickson placed third and Kevin Henderson, fourth. Youth winner was Trapper Ramsey.

Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net WASHINGTON (AP) Last years BP oil spill probably wont push the troubled blue n tuna Gulf of Mexico population over the edge as some scientists had worried, a federal analysis shows. Of all the potential damage from the 172 million gallon spill in April 2010, scientists had been most concerned about how the oil spill would harm an already over shed species of large tuna. Thats because about onefth of the spawning habitat where the Gulfs baby tuna were living was coated with oil, according to satellite records. Tuna less than a year old are most vulnerable to pollution. An analysis by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, using two different projections from computer models, says that at most, such a spill probably would result in a 4 percent reduction in future spawning of the sh, but probably far less. Blue sh tuna is considered one of the Gulfs signature species. A recent summit in Houston examined the Gulfs health, including the governments restoration plans and the tunas fate. It appears so far that the impact on the larval population is relatively small, said Clay Porch, director of sustainable sheries for NOAAs Southeast Fisheries Science Center in Miami. The agencys analysis, which was mentioned in two pages of a 114-page government update on overall tuna health released in May, is based on an assumption that 1 in 5 baby tuna was killed or unable to reproduce in the future because thats the size of the spill in the spawning area. That 20 percent potential loss of year-old tuna translates to 4 percent of the overall tuna population in the future. Overall population gures also have to factor in the fact that in general many baby tuna at that age die naturally. But that is probably way too high a gure, Porch said in an interview. Instead of 20 percent of baby tuna being harmed, more recent analysis yet to be published said it should be 11 percent or maybe even 5 percent, he said. Those gures should be reduced even more for the overall future population of tuna, down nearer to 2 percent. At most that number should be 1 in 9 or even in 1 in 20 deaths of baby tuna, and thats only the effect on one year for the longlived tuna. Those smaller gures are based on larval surveys that have not been released publicly because of a potential court case with BP over damages from the spill, and more simulations that are conditioned on real data, Porch said. Porch said its unlikely that the effect on tuna stock would hit 4 percent and it is not an additional major source of stress on the overall population of the blue n tuna in the Gulf. Other work on baby tuna health will be published in peer-reviewed science journals. But thats only the young. So far NOAA doesnt know how the spill affected adults and whether adults of all ages were killed or made infertile in massive numbers that could have a bigger effect on the overall population than the oiling of one years worth of young, Porch said. Boris Worm, a sheries professor at Dalhousie University in Canada who has warned of problems with tuna populations in the past, said the NOAA gures are within the yearly variations of mortality for tuna. So it will be a bad year, but not a catastrophic year, Worm said. This wouldnt push them over the brink.Feds: blue n tuna probably OK after BP oil spill

SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com ASection By Brad MilnerFlorida Freedom Newspapers ORLANDO Chipleys state football championship dreams were shattered in the span of less than seven minutes on Friday. Jefferson County (9-5) capitalized on two turnovers in the third quarter and broke open a close game to win the inaugural Rural Class 1A crown 47-13 at the Citrus Bowl. Chipley nished 11-3 and defeated three district champions in advancing to it rst state title game. It couldnt pull off a fourth win over a district champion in the biggest game, which slipped away quickly after halftime. The teams were tied 7-7 after a rst half lled with turnovers and missed opportunities. Chipley didnt score any points in three of four trips inside the Jefferson County 20-yard line in the opening 24 minutes. Unable to secure any momentum, Chipley was overwhelmed thereafter and held to 198 total yards. Jefferson Countys Alphonso Footman, who led all rushers with 130 yards, scored on a 13-yard run to give his team a 14-7 lead with 8:05 left in the third quarter. Chipley stalled on its next possession and a bad snap went through punter Fletcher Dilmores legs to give Jefferson County the ball at the 22. Quarterback Lenorris Footman, 8 for 12 passing with 145 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, scored on the next play and Jefferson County led 21-7 with 4:18 to go in the third quarter. Ryan McIntrye fumbled on the next Chipley series and Lenorris Footman found Ladarian Smiley for 31 yards on the ensuing play for a 27-7 lead with 3:54 showing. Smiley wasnt done, returning a punt 72 yards for a score to turn a close game into a rout with 1:32 to go in the quarter. He grabbed a 41-yard pass in the fourth quarter for Jefferson Countys nal touchdown and nished with 116 yards on ve receptions. Chipley dominated the rst half with almost 17 minutes of possession time. It turned the ball over on downs on the games rst drive that encompassed 65 yards and stalled at the Jefferson County 6. Chipley also lost a fumble at the 12 and missed a 25-yard eld goal on the nal play of the half. Chipley tied the game 7-7 on Kobe McCrarys 3-yard run with 5:15 to play in the second quarter. McCrary paced Chipley with 109 yards rushing, while Ryan McIntyre added 80 on the ground. McIntyre scored from 6 yards to cap the games scoring in the fourth quarter. Jefferson County, which racked up 423 total yards, went ahead 7-0 on Revonte Robinsons 6-yard run a minute into the second quarter. Jefferson County also sputtered with three turnovers in the rst half, including the two interceptions. Alphonso Footman lost a fumble inside the Chipley 20.

What is in the future for Kurt? Will he go full-time in NHRA? Will he be in a different car with a new sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series? With a total of 12 years in NASCAR and 400 races, 24 wins, 6 chase appearances and 7,148 laps led, what team in its right mind wouldnt want him, you ask. Well, there are things to consider, like his actions and language when he doesnt get his way. The team owners have to think about this. Sure, his stats look good and it would look great on the team to have a driver with those stats racing for you. On the down side, it would look bad if the driver throws a tantrum like a small child when things arent going his way. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens in February.

One pair of unsterilized dogs, with their offspring, can result in 4,372 puppies in 7 years. Statistics also show that only one out of nine of these animals nd a good home, leaving the rest to suffer abandonment and/or euthanasia. For years, pet owners have questioned whether or not to spay or neuter their pets. However, history and research show that there are many pros to having your pets spayed or neutered. Whether your pets are kept indoors or out, there are many health and behavioral bene ts associated with spaying and neutering, says Dr. Lynn Ruoff, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Spaying and neutering pets results in fewer reproductive health problems and makes the treatment of epilepsy, diabetes, and other diseases much easier, notes Ruoff. Ruoff adds, Spayed pets will not develop pyometra, or pus in the uterus, and they have a greatly decreased risk of developing mammary gland tumors. Neutered pets are less likely to develop testicular tumors or an enlarged prostate. Another big bene t can be peace of mind a spayed or neutered pet is far less likely to leave the yard in search of other animals. In both male and female pets, sterilization makes them far less likely to roam, which tends to safeguard against injuries due to ghts and accidents, adds Ruoff. Neutered males are less likely to mark their territory by urinating in the house and will not be inclined to wander off in search of a mate. Spayed females are also less likely to wander and will not attract males who will ght over a female in heat. In addition, hunting, guarding, and other skills are actually improved in spayed and neutered dogs because they are not distracted by hormonal urges, Ruoff believes. Pet owners concerned with the pain and cost of the actual procedure can be put at ease by talking with their veterinarian. Ruoff explains that spaying and neutering, while considered major surgery and performed under general anesthesia, involve little risk in young, healthy pets. In the past, it was believed that puppies and kittens should not be spayed or neutered until they were at least six months of age. However, recent studies conclude that sterilization of pets as young as three months of age does not increase the risks associated with surgery or the number of long-term complications. Animals also recover from these procedures much faster than one might expect. Stitches are usually removed 10 days after the surgery, until which time pet owners are advised to keep the surgical area clean and to keep the animal calm. Most pets recover within a week or less, often not requiring additional pain medication. If cost has been keeping you from having a pet spayed or neutered, it is wise to consider the expenses associated with the alternative. Without sterilization, you may nd yourself paying to treat pyometra, mammary gland tumors, prostatic enlargement, or injuries caused by automobiles. You cant put a price tag on a family pet that becomes lost or killed, adds Ruoff.ABOUT PET TALKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Human emotions are such that we usually distance ourselves from those with unpleasant attitudes or behaviors, so at times loving someone regardless of their actions or feelings toward us is of this could be a married couple they may be so much in love on their wedding day, but later get a divorce because they no longer care for each other. Unconditional love is a blessing from our Heavenly Father and involves forgiveness, understanding, wisdom, and children, or a childs love for their parents can be unconditional, and Gods love for His chosen people is also unconditional. The Bible tells us that there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God, which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord. Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and to God. N.I.V. Ephesians 5:2 Children across America and around the world are told by their parents one of the greatest lies ever told: On December 25th, Santa Claus comes, and if they are good he will bring them a bunch of stuff they wont know what to do with, as the gifts under the tree represents the parents fantasy. What is not told, is that around 700 B.C., (thats 700 years before Christ would be born of a virgin in Bethlehem) God spoke through His prophet and led Isaiah to write, Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14 NKJV). A little more than 700 years after Isaiah wrote those words, about 50 A.D., a tax collector by the name of Matthew, who had left everything to follow Christ, wrote, Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins. So all this was done that it might be ful lled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, God with us, (Matthew 1:18-23 NKJV). Later, the Apostle John recorded for us the words that Christ Himself spoke: Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. ... I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me, (John 14:1-6). If you truly desire to be blessed and be a blessing to others, dont waste your time and the wonderful minds of little children teaching them to look for a ctional character who will always disappoint them. Stop the lies (Revelation 20:10), and begin to educate your children and neighbors about the truth of the Only Begotten Son of God who has purchased the most awesome gift (John 3:16) that anyone could even imagine, Eternal Life through Jesus Christ, for whom Dec. 25 is named. No, we do not know when He will return, but we do know this: The writings of Isaiah and many other Old Testament Prophets were ful lled when Christ came and was born of a virgin. Also, as Jesus said, He will return for His bride, and He is the One that we should anticipate coming. As mentioned in other articles, for the person who is born again, Christmas is not to be celebrated just one day a year, but lived in a wonderful anticipation that Christ will soon come, not in a sleigh, but with a shout (1 Thessalonians 4:16), and a call to all that are His. This is what I know for sure. He could come before Dec. 25. Christ Himself gave us this hint about that day as He said, But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the ood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the ood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be, (Matthew 24:36-51). Its time not to be nice, but to be right with Him, for He is coming for His Bride, the born again, bought by the blood, repentant Church (Luke 13:3; John 3:3-21).
