Follow Us On Facebook And Mobile Too! @WCN_HCT Connect With Us 24/7 www.bonifaynow.com Wednesday, FEBRUARY 8 2012 By Randal Seyler Managing Editor rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce is looking for a few good words. Chamber of cial Julia Bullington announced the Holmes County Logo Contest on Thursday during the chambers monthly meeting. Holmes County has no branding, Bullington said. In marketing and advertising, it is so important to have that name-brand, something that symbolizes the area. To nd that something, the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, Holmes County Tourist Development Council and the Holmes County Economic Development Commission have announced a contest to produce the rst of cial Holmes County logo. The competition is open to any resident of Holmes County and encourages amateurs, artists, graphic designers and students to create a logo that captures and communicates the countys spirit, history, future and/or mission, according to the chambers website. Entries may be submitted at any time but must be received by the contests deadline of 4 p.m. April 13. The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners has voted to adopt this new logo, and it will be used by the county in a variety of formats, Bullington said, including but not limited to online, in print, on signage and in promotional material. Seven judges from various segments of the community will comprise the selection committee, Bullington said. A cash prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the contest winner. We are encouraging everyone to participate, and we welcome any submissions. If you have any talent or have a friend or relative who is artistic, encourage them to submit a logo, Bullington said. By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Hundreds of walkers wearing red turned out on Thursday to participate in a Heart Awareness Walk at Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay. The Holmes County Health Department and Doctors Memorial Hospital partnered together to sponsor the event, which sought to promote heart health awareness. The walk was free and everyone was invited to participate. Walkers were encouraged to bring a hearthealthy lunch and commit to walking at least two laps or more. Heart disease is the number one killer of both American men and women, said Brenda Blitch, director of patient and public relations for DMH. One in four women die from heart disease, and most fail to make the connection between risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Friday was declared National Wear Red Day by the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women Campaign. Holmes Countys health care organizations encouraged everyone to wear red on Friday in support of cardiovascular disease awareness. We want to thank everyone for their support and participation, said Traci Corbin of the Holmes County Health Department. We hope that the event grows each year. Death of PDL man remains a mystery By Chris Olwell Florida Freedom Newspapers Twitter: @PCNHchriso PONCE DE LEON The long-awaited release of a public record provides some insight into what happened to a prominent Ponce de Leon man, but the exact cause of his fatal injury remains unknown. Lowell Kelly, an heir to Destin matriarch Mattie Kelly, died at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola on Jan. 20 after being on life support since he was found unresponsive Dec. 4, according to a Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce incident report. According to Glenn Hess, state attorney for the 14th Judicial Circuit, an autopsy revealed Kelly died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head, but the medical examiner was not able to determine how the injuries were sustained.

If its a homicide, then well treat it as a homicide, Hess said. But at this point, nobody knows. According to the report released Feb. 1, more than a month after the Sheriffs Of ce received a Freedom of Information Act request from Florida Freedom Newspapers the Northwest Florida Daily News, Kelly and several friends attended a party Dec. 3 at the Otter Creek Lodge at Vortex Springs, which the 59-year-old Kelly owned. Just before midnight, the manager, Joseph Farran, told an uninjured but apparently intoxicated Kelly that he needed to leave the party and took him to a nearby home, which Capt. Harry Hamilton told the Daily News was owned by Kelly. Farran told police he tried to assist Kelly up some stairs to the home, but about halfway up, Kelly tumbled back to the bottom of the staircase. He said he tried again and Kelly fell again, but he didnt see any injuries to Kelly. Farran said he left for about 20 minutes and returned with another man, Douglas Cain. Cain and Farran were able to get Kelly up the stairs into the home. The two men put Kelly in the bathtub to clean him because he had vomited, and after they cleaned him off, they decided to leave Kelly in the tub so he would be less likely to injure himself, and the two men left, Farran told police. About 6 a.m., Farran returned to check on Kelly and found him unresponsive in the empty bathtub. He called Tracy Collins, whom the report lists as Kellys girlfriend, and she suggested Farran wait to call 911 because Kelly was on probation. Collins called 911 around 7:30 a.m. after she arrived. The responding of cer noted Kellys face was swollen, particularly around the eyes. in the one thing that would make it great, and that is the ability to be able to work, Drummond said. We need to change the way that people see this area and the country. Drummond said his experience as a sign painter, a screen printer, a waitor, a fast-food server and a graphic web designer helps in his campaign, and he foresees it helping in his position in Congress. All my life I have been an artist in one form or another and have always had to look at the world differently than most others, Drummond said. What this means is that I have to look and see how things t together. When you paint, build a model or even build a website, you have to see how it is all going to look like before you even start the project. The ability to see what is at the end and how to get there is what is needed in Washington today. The main concern facing the nation today is the lack of employment, Drummond said. The problem is not having people that want to work but that there are no jobs for them to work. Every day in our area, we see roads that need work, bridges that need rebuilt, shops that need repainted and more. The reason is that there are no funds for them to work with. They cant get loans to get it done because of fear. If they have the funds, they are not using them because of fear that they will not have that cash on hand for later. We are in a vicious circle that needs to be broken. Drummond is petitioning to be included in the general election as a candidate for House of Representatives in Floridas 1st Congressional District. The seat is currently held by incumbent Jeff Miller of Chumuckla (Santa Rosa County). Because the new lines for the Congressional Districts have not been nalized, we are able to accept petitions that have been lled out anywhere in the state, Drummond said. Granted, it would be better to have them just from the 1st District area, but we can use all the help that we can get. As to the exact area that the district currently covers, it consists of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes and Washington counties. With 2,998 signatures, Drummond can be placed on the ballot for this upcoming election. For more information on Drummond and his campaign, visit drummondforcongress.org/.

FREE IN-OFFICE TRIAL By Shannon Seyler Special To Florida Freedom Newspapers Several area residents made the trip to Samson, Ala. on Sunday to enjoy a day of Sacred Harp singing. It was an all-day event with a potluck luncheon. Sacred Harp is an old-fashioned form of sacred music that has a long, rich history in this area. Gatherings of singers are often referred to as singings or sings, and are nding new popularity not only across the U.S., but internationally. Sacred Harp can seem challenging to beginners, but newcomers are often able to learn the shape note system fairly quickly. Sacred Harp is a form of early American music utilizing unique shape notes. The harp in Sacred Harp is a somewhat poetic reference to the human voice. Instruments do not accompany sacred Harp. There has been a resurgence of interest in this music after it was featured in the movie Cold Mountain. Sacred Harp went into something of a decline with the advent of more modern forms of gospel music, but hung on in various areas, particularly in the South. Today, one can nd singings across America, including many in Florida and Alabama. The Sacred Harp Book Company, which prints shape note books, is located in Samson, Ala. Samson is also home to the Central Sacred Harp Singing Convention, whose Spring session was held on Sunday. In attendance from Bonifay were Ben Smith and his daughter, Sarah Smith Shouppe of Cottondale. Ben Smith, a former quartet singer, is proud to carry on the Sacred Harp tradition. He observed that Sacred Harp singing has enjoyed a long history regionally, including in Washington and Holmes Counties. There are singings in Bonifay, Wausau, DeFuniak Springs, Panama City, Tallahassee and other nearby locations. Smith added that long ago, people would often travel great distances to attend singings, either walking or traveling by oxcart. Fortunately, its much easier to get to todays singings. Bill Aplin of Samson, a longtime singer who is active with the Sacred Harp Publishing Company, states that the convention in Samson has been in existence for over 75 years. In the early days, singings rotated between different churches, he notes, but the Central Convention has been held regularly at Travelers Rest Church for around thirty years. Sarah Smith Shouppe and other attendees are hoping to see more locals come out to experience Sacred Harp for themselves. A singing will be held in Blountstown on Feb. 18 at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement. Starting and ending times for all-day singings can be somewhat exible, but usually range between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., with a break being taken for lunch. Visitors are welcome, whether they choose to sing or just listen.

WANT MORE? Find us online at chipleypaper.com friend us on Facebook or tweet us @WCN_HCT I attended the funeral of my high school home economics teacher last week at Vernons East Side Baptist Church. Many of those in attendance paid tribute to Pauline Russ Baragona Cook Shores. After 40 years of teaching Mrs. Shores retired from Vernon High School her Alma Mater. Both her parents, Theron and Mary Brock Russ were educators. In fact the Russ name was well known in education in the Washington County area. My brotherin-law James Russ taught mathematics at VHS and later was principal of Vernon Elementary School. His father, Jim Russ also taught school for many years. The late Stella Creel used to laugh about how Mr. Russ and family would drive through town with the canvas curtains of their touring car apping and they would say, There goes Jim Russ. After Mrs Shores granddaughter spoke about things her grandmother taught her, several of her former students paid tribute. Yvonne Parish White was probably Paulines most outstanding student. Yvonne started her leadership role as an elementary student in 4-H Club and it carried over into Mrs. Cooks Home Economics Class. Under her guidance and help, Yvonne went on to become Floridas State President for FHA, Future Homemakers of America. Then she graduated from Florida State University, Paulines Alma Mater, and taught Home Economics for 31 years. She highly praised Pauline and her late husband Tom Wallace Cook for the way they encouraged her, carrying her to the many places she had to go as a state of cer of FHA. She praised the town of Vernon saying that Hilary Clintons coining the phrase, It Takes A Village ts Vernon, Fla. That is true. Though most of the adults who were there when I was in school are now gone, Ill always remember how that town always has supported the school and its students, taking a personal interest in even us kids from way out in the country. Other former students recalled some speci c things they learned in Home Economics. Several recalled the baby dress and the four-gored skirt that I mentioned last week. Unlike me, they were praised for their ne stitches. Some talked about the nutrition and the importance of color on the plate which she taught. Her niece who is left-handed recalled how Pauline taught her correct table setting. She had been told by her aunt that hers was correct, but exactly backward. I have trouble getting that across to my granddaughters. Angie Hinson Morris talked about the teaching of manners which is so overlooked today. In those days, saying yes Maam and yes Sir or no Maam and no Sir didnt have to be taught in a subject area. Those were taught at home usually. If not, it was soon learned at school. Manners is simply a matter of respect for the other person. In our Me centered, instant grati cation, fast food, drive-through society, it is so easy to overlook the common courtesies of saying Good Morning, holding the door, letting someone at the check-out go rst, or other thoughtful things. So many of the things we learned in Home Economics under the tuteledge of Pauline Russ Baragona Cook Shores have helped a lot of us make a better life for ourselves and others. I hope we have passed some of those things on to others. NOTE I have been asked to mention the Bonifay Womans Clubs game night which they are planning to hold on March First. Put this date on your calendar and watch for further details. Wednesday, February 8, 2012 Well, week one in Chipley is winding down as I write this column on Sunday afternoon. It was a week ago my wife Shannon and I rolled into town, nishing up our nearly 800-mile ride from Arkansas and what a week it has been. To begin with, I had sprained my knee loading our belongings into the moving container, and by the time I got to Chipley my right leg had a grapefruit where my kneecap should have been. Thanks to Chipleys Dr. Greg Sloan I was soon back on my feet, but my rst day at work saw me lurching around the of ce like Frankensteins monster, which must have made a great impression on my new co-workers. Unloading all the stuff started Thursday when the U-Pack cube (called a ReloCube) showed up. UPack is basically a small trailer without wheels. You load it up, the freight company ABF hauls it to your destination, then you get to unload it. For me, the bene t was I didnt have to drive a big truck while hauling the car behind, and the cost was pretty much the same. The down side was that the U-Pack doesnt pack or unpack itself, so just a day past being barely able to walk, I got to unload all the junk that got me to limping in the rst place. Thankfully, the trek was much closer from the living room to Relocube this time around. As an aside, have you ever noticed how much stuff you have that you never really use? Most of my belongings are either books or movies boxes and boxes of books, which are way too heavy. Maybe I need to rethink this whole e-book thing and get rid of some of my hard copies in my library. I got a surprise Wednesday when Sarah Smith Shouppe called into the newspaper of ce and happened to get me on the phone. She wanted to tell me about an upcoming Sacred Harp singing in Samson, Ala., and was shocked when I actually knew what she was talking about. If you dont know, sacred harp is a type of shape-note singing that dates back to around the Revolutionary War. It was (and still is) popular in the South, and most people have encountered sacred harp on the soundtrack to the lm Cold Mountain, starring Nicole Kidman. Shannon was a member of the Shiloh Singers in Arkansas and that is the only reason I know any of the above information. But I had the good sense to pass along Sarahs phone number to Shannon, and as a result on Sunday Shannon traveled to Samson to sing with the local sacred harp contingent. Thursday I attended the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce meeting and was very impressed by the attendance and enthusiasm at the breakfast meeting. Seeing such excitement and participation in a small Chamber is a good indication that the business leadership of Holmes County is both proactive and hard working. Besides announcements on the upcoming Chamber dinner in March and the Chambers golf tournament in May, Julia Bullington also announced an upcoming contest to create a Holmes County logo. Finally, on Saturday we got the chance to just wander around Chipley and drive around the area a bit. The weather was perfect and we got to visit some of the local businesses, including the G & P Country Meats, Main Street Market, Goodwill, Freds and Sav-A-Lot. We also shopped WalMart (considering we just moved from Northwest Arkansas, the place where Sam Walton opened his rst Wal-Mart store, how could we not?) but we also did some grocery shopping at the Piggly-Wiggly in Chipley during our rst week here. For towns their size, both Bonifay and Chipley have quite a variety of shopping to offer residents and visitors. While many in communities, the slogan shop at home is hard to adhere to but Washington and Holmes county residents seem to have plenty of choices when it comes to spending their hard-earned dollars. Dont worry, I dont plan on writing a shopping blowby-blow every week For us, all these shops were new experiences and we found bargains and treats in each store. If you havent been to some of these merchants in a while, maybe you should pay them a visit. Who knows, if you look at them like you just moved here, you might just see something new, too.

Call about our Wedding Packages EDITORS NOTE : This autobiography was prepared by Mrs. Pheba Ann Porters grandson, Eli Andrews Jr., with the help of her children and grandchildren. I was born Pheba Ann Oliver on, Sept. 26, 1904, in Ebro, Fla. My parents were the later Mr. Louis Oliver and Mrs. Fannie PetersonOliver. To this union seven children were born, four boys and three girls. The boys were James Henry, Will James, Samson and McNeal. The girls were Mamie, Idell and Pheba. My father was a laborer, and my mother was a midwife. I used to follow my mother on her visits to check up on her patients and when it was time for her to deliver a baby. At an early age, I became interested in the trade, and my mother began teaching me the art of being a midwife. It was a joy to help her with the delivery of a newborn. The 1920s were an extremely dif cult time to grow up AfricanAmerican in the United States. Racial prejudice ran rampant, and the Ku Klux Klan tried to rid this country of African-Americans, Indians, Jews and foreigners alike. Because of racism, there wasnt much in the way of professional work for African-Americans. The profession of midwife was both a need and respectable work. Recognizing the need for such care in the AfricanAmerican communities, I completed the necessary training offered at the Washington County Health Department and became a certi ed midwife. I remember my rst delivery. She was pretty young girl child. Her name was Shirley Hunter, and her mother was Burline Douglas. I was proud of myself and the ne job I had done to deliver this child. In many cases, my patients were not able to pay me nancially. They would pay their debt in produce and poultry. I understood their situation, and I gladly accepted their payment. During my time as a midwife, I delivered over 300 babies. Of that number, 78 were my grandchildren and 178 were my greatgrandchildren. My last delivery was in 1973. I delivered my granddaughter, Madie LeShae Bush. I retired after her delivery and didnt deliver any more babies. I grew up in the 1920s, and times were hard. It was customary for young girls to marry at an early age. I was only 16 years old when I married my rst husband, Isaiah Potter, on May 26, 1921. I left Ebro and moved to Millers Ferry with my new husband. Four months later, on Sept. 24, our son Hurtis was born. We were a happy couple, as happy as newlyweds should be. Our happiness ended when one of Isaiahs family members explained to us that we were closely related and that we should end our marriage. After verifying what had been told to us, we agreed to end our marriage. Isaiah died on Jan. 31, 1970, and Hurtis died on Dec. 16, 1981. As fate would have it, on Nov. 9, 1923, I gave birth to my second child. I named him Eli, which means lofty. Eli preceded me in death on Aug. 26, 1993. He was 69 when he died. One faithful summer day I received a gentleman caller who was a Muscogee Creek Indian from Holmes Valley. His name was John Andrews. Honey, he was de nitely easy on the eyes. Of all the young girls in my community, he chose me to be his girlfriend. He was indeed a dashing young brave, and might I say, he was handsome to boot. His olive skin and the two long black braids he wore on his head set him apart from all the rest. It was love at rst sight. I thought to myself, at last my love has come along. We dated for a period of time and were married on Jan. 31, 1926. He accepted my two sons, Hurtis and Eli, as his own, and he gave them his last name, Andrews. To this union eight children were born, ve girls and three boys. The boys were Harry, James and John Junior. James and John are twins, but they are not identical twins. The girls were Sarah, Madie, Fannie Dee, Emma Ann and Millie. Emma preceded me in death on, Feb. 6, 1987. She was 55 when she died. It has been said that all good things must come to an end. My good thing came to an end when my young Indian brave died and left me with 10 children to raise. My second son, Eli, was very supportive of the family. He worked outside the home to help provide for our daily needs. Meaningful jobs for young AfricanAmerican men were hard to come by, so Eli joined the army. This way a guaranteed monthly income would help support the family. Eli knew there would be time when young African-American girls would be taken advantage of by their Caucasian employers. To ensure this didnt happen to his sisters, he sent money home so they wouldnt have to work in the elds. Emma once said that Eli seemed more like a father than he did a brother. Emma felt that way because Eli made sure his sisters were well taken care of. Many years passed before I started accepting company again. After my children were all grown, I started keeping company with Alex Porter. Alex and I dated for a while, but Eli didnt approve of Alex dating me. He was being an overprotective son. Elis wife, Annie Mae, talked to him and helped him to understand that just as he had taken a wife, I too was entitled to take a husband. After all, I was a grown woman. Eli relinquished, and Alex and I were married. There were no children born to this union. My 10 grown children from my previous marriages and his grown children from his previous marriage were enough to satisfy us both. Alex and I had a long life together. One day Alex died and left me all alone. Much to my surprise, after Alexs death, I began to have a gentlemen caller. I told him that we could be friends, and that was the long and short of it. I didnt want nor did I need another husband at my age. Unfortunately, one of my sons marriage ended in divorce. He had a young son who needed a mother, and I was allowed to raise him as my own. It was a joy having someone to need and depend on me again. It goes without saying that I spoiled him rotten, and he spoiled me rotten, as well. He had me driving at the ripe old age of 78. Before then, I had never driven, nor had I ever tried to drive a car. His name is Lonnie, and he was the apple of my eye. He gave me so much joy because he made me feel youthful again. I loved all of my grandchildren, but I raised Lonnie, so he and I had a special bond. When my health began to fail me, we didnt have Life Alert Emergency for Seniors in my area. So, I had to live with my daughters on a rotating basis. As you can imagine, that was the last thing I wanted to do. I didnt want to have to depend on my children to take care of me. They wouldnt have it any other way. My daughter Millie was my guardian angel. She took me into her home and treated me as though I was one of her children. She was at my every beck and call. I couldnt ask for a better daughter. Dont get me wrong, they all took turns caring for me and they all took good care of me, but Millie just went beyond the call of duty. She made me feel so welcome in her home. Mind you, I was welcome in all of my childrens homes, but I was more comfortable at home with Millie. Maybe it was because my house was just a few hundred yards from Millies house. I was a very religious woman and an avid reader of the Bible. I knew and understood what the Hebrew writer said, in Hebrews 9:27, And as it is appointed unto men one to die, but after this the judgment. My time to die came on, April 22, 1999, at Bay Medical Center in Panama City. I was 94 when I died, and I leave a loving family behind. I am con dent they will continue to love and care for each other, as Ive taught them to do. In conclusion, Ive come this far by faith.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com Hook harvest It is kind of hard to believe January is gone and February is here. With the passing of January, so go some sh laws. Remember years back when it was almost impossible to catch a red sh because there were none? Well, those days are long gone, and I hope they stay gone. The state stopped the keeping of red sh for several years. It also stopped the selling of wild red sh. Red sh have been one of the most successful comeback stories next to red snapper. For many years, an angler has been able to catch and keep one red sh per day. If there were 10 people in the boat they could keep 10 red sh. All that has changed. There has been a push to keep two red sh per angler either in a boat or on the beach. The state held several meetings for the public to voice its opinion on raising the limit, and I suppose the unanimous decision was to raise it. So now you can keep two red sh per day with one exception; only eight red sh can be caught and brought to the shore in a boat. Sort of like ling. Only six ling can be brought to the dock no matter how many anglers are in the boat. This is sort of good and sort of bad. At least now only eight sh can be caught and kept. But now, four anglers can catch as many as eight anglers could before. Another change that seems to be confusing speckled trout shermen is the number of trout an angler can keep. In our part of the state all you need to know is the number ve. Five speckled trout is all you can keep. Starting Feb. 1 there is no closed season on speckled trout with the exception of the Lansing Smith Steam Plant canal. That area always will be closed from Nov. 1 until March 1 to the keeping of sh with no exceptions. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net RETURN OF THE PHOTOS BY FWC Spotted skunks are smaller than striped skunks but just as adept as keeping away predators. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission During the past few months, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission received a number of calls from the motoring public about dead striped skunks on the roadways of Northwest Florida. Seeing road-killed wildlife is nothing to be happy about but it does tell us something important. In its most base sense, it means skunks still are out there in the wildlife world. For a period of time that didnt seem to be the case. In the 1980s and even early 90s, calls and reports of skunks were almost nonexistent across much of North Florida. Even though striped skunks are nocturnal animals and move about mostly at night, their absence was noteworthy. During those days if we got a call about a (striped) skunk, you made a note of it. They were that rare, said Dr. Jeff Gore, a wildlife biologist with the FWC. Gore said it is only conjecture, but he believes its possible that a rabies or distemper outbreak in the 1980s had a devastating impact on the skunk population. Both diseases are highly infectious and easily spread among wildlife such as skunks, fox and raccoons. By the late 1990s, skunk numbers were apparently on the rebound. More than 2,000 Floridians responded to a 2002 FWC survey asking people to respond if they saw a skunk. The majority of the sightings were in the northern half of Florida. Florida actually is home to two species of skunks. The striped skunk is about the size of a house cat and the species with which most people are familiar. Striped skunks have short, powerful legs and are adept at digging. The species is an omnivore and will eat plant and animal matter, including insects, small reptiles and bird eggs. Perhaps the most notorious character of the striped skunk is its ability to spray predators with a strong-smelling and clinging oily uid. Spotted skunks, which are smaller and more agile than striped skunks, are also found in Florida and in much of the Eastern United States. For more than 100 years Eastern spotted skunks have been bred in captivity and the furs sold in the fur trade. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission During the past few months, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission received a number of calls from the motoring public about dead striped skunks on the roadways of Northwest Florida. Seeing road-killed After years of rarely seeing polecats, they are making a resurgence SKUNK FACTS Skunk spray causes no real damage to its victims, but it sure makes them uncomfortable. It can linger for many days and defy attempts to remove it. As a defensive technique, the spray is very effective. Predators typically give skunks a wide berth unless little other food is available. Type Mammal Diet Omnivore Average life span in the wild 3 years Size Head and body, 8 to 19 inches; tail, 5 to 15 inches Weight 7 ounces to 14 pounds Group name Surfeit Source: nationalgeographic.com SKUNK Wednesday, February 8, 2012 Page 6 Striped skunks have made a resurgence in numbers during the past decade or so.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com A Page 7 Section By Cathrine Lamb Editorial Assistant clamb@chipleypaper.com This week, with only 10 days left to the Bud Shootout, I have decided to give a brief history of the NASCAR sport. 1948 Started by Big Bill France Sr. and a group of ex-moonshiners. 1949 The rst race was June 16 in Charlotte, N.C. Jim Roper won the race driving a Lincoln. 1979 Live network cameras make debut at the Daytona 500. 1984 The King. Richard Petty. won his nal time at Daytona while President Ronald Reagan was in the stands. 1994 Stock cars made its debut at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Brickyard 400, now mostly known as simply the Brickyard. 2001 One of NASCARs greats, Dale Earnhardt Sr., was killed in the last lap of the Daytona 500. 2004 Dale Earnhardt Jr., won the Daytona 500, three years after his father was killed on the same lap. I know a lot more has happened between 1948 at the rst race and now the starting of the 2012 season. Bill Ford sent me an email asking for more information on why Danica Patrick was suing NASCAR. Unfortunately Mr. Ford, I couldnt nd anything about this except on the rumor sites, and me, myself, I dont have much con dence in any of the rumor sites. Keep those questions coming. Now for a quote from the late great Dale Earnhardt Sr.: Second place is only the rst loser. Until next week, if you have any ideas for a story, let me know at clamb@ chipleypaper.com. SUBMITTED PHOTO Kendall Bradley caught this black drum under the Jolly Bay bridge. After he took pictures, he released the sh, not knowing you can keep one oversized catch as a trophy sh (the game warden told him after he came in for a closer look of the sh). Boys hoops district play under way Staff Report CHIPLEY Chipley (20-3) and Holmes County are the top two seeds in District 2-1A at Freeport and expected by many to advance.

Malone is the top seed in the latter district and Paxton No. 2. All championship games are at 7 p.m. Saturday with the nalists of each district moving on to rst-round regional matchups. Bozeman opened its District 4-1A tournament in Blountstown against Franklin County on Tuesday. The Bucks are one of the most improved teams in the entire state considering they already are 14-11 after winning two games all of last season. West Gadsden left the rest of District 4-1A in shambles this season and is expected to dominate the district tourney, but Bozeman could wind up securing just the second regional berth in school history. The Bucks tied with South Walton for the second seed, but lost out in a tiebreaker. Marianna hosts threeschool District 1-4A, with Pensacola Catholic already ensured a region berth with a bye into the championship game.

Then along came Tusculum College and his fears turned to elation. Last Wednesday, Oliver signed with the Division II school in Greeneville, Tenn., about nine hours from his home. He said he had other suitors, but the options dried up when the season began. I had some colleges look at me over the summer, but they laid off, Oliver said. I didnt think I was going to get offered and its very exciting. Tusculum contacted Chipley coach Rob Armstrong expressing interest in Oliver during the Christmas holiday break. The 5-foot-10, 170pound cornerback attended a combine at the school and he posted the fastest 40-yard dash time of 4.43 seconds. Its going to help me be a better man, now that Ive turned 18 its time to be a man in the world, Oliver said. When I get there I want to balance being an athlete and keeping a level head with my grades.

Local A8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, February 8, 2012 By Jim Town Florida Landings, LLC EDITORS NOTE: Submitted by Florida Landings, LLC, written by Jim Town and veri ed by Washington County Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz. A Development of Regional Impact is a large scale planning process just below Sector Plans such as Bay Countys West Bay Sector Plan, or Knight Property in the southwest corner of Washington County. Plans are reviewed by appropriate state and federal agencies and local governments, which in the case of Rhythm involved Washington, Jackson and Bay counties. The Rhythm DRI was led with the West Florida Regional Planning Council in Pensacola on Feb. 29, 2008, and received WFRPC approval on Oct. 27, 2011, after all agencies had been reconciled for design concepts, maintaining over 50 percent of the 1,883 acres in a natural state to be protected by recorded conservation easements and it is noted that the Rhythm DRI was the only surviving DRI in the region since 2008. Rhythm is an age-restricted community for people 55 years of age and older and no school age people are permitted except as visitors for a short period. It will have 3,200 dwelling units in various formats such as single family, town homes, cottage homes and multi-family, all developed on a cluster neighborhood concept with a village center central to all neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has a park of at least six acres and all neighborhoods are connected by trails appropriate for golf carts and walking that include nature overlooks. Construction will be over a period of 10 years starting about mid-2013 and will commence with part of the central village and the surrounding neighborhood. The central utilities, initial community roads, storm water drainage, and almost $9 million of road paving on county roads adjacent and connected to the Rhythm area will be completed before the rst house building permit. Additional utilities, storm water drainage and development with permitting and control features imposed by Washington County through the Development Order. It cannot become another Sunny Hills with 28 square miles of roads and lots, but few houses. Rhythm will grow geographically as homes are sold and occupied. The sewer plant will operate at advanced level treatment, which is basically drinking water standard and the storm water drainage system will be to Outstanding Florida Waters standard, which is the highest state-level and there are no creeks or rivers in that area of Washington, Jackson or Bay counties that have been designated to this standard. The water Rhythm puts back into the ground will be at higher standards than currently prevailing in the geographic area. Utilities will be operated by a private utility company. The market for agerestricted communities is international in scope and Rhythms location relative to the Gulf of Mexico but outside the main hurricane zones ts a pro le that indicates a signi cant portion of the 76 million baby boomers want to live with access to coasts in warm climates. The most successful Florida age-restricted community is The Villages near Ocala. According to a study by the MetLife Mature Market Institute, 55 percent of new home buyers in active adult communities do not rely on the sale of an existing home for the down payment on the new home. Rhythm will have an estimated 5,000 to 6,000 residents and the retail/commercial facilities in the Central Village are sized for immediate needs only, so those 5,000 to 6,000 new residents will be looking for goods, services, banking and social af liations in Washington County. With a projected per capita consumption of $19,244 in 2010 a population increase in Washington County of 5,500 people adds about $105 million per year to the countys need for goods and services. This is an addition to the $430 million for building materials that could be mostly purchased locally. During the construction decade an average of 2,300 jobs will be created for onsite workers. Total county job creation would be inuenced by the increase in household incomes. In addition to the increased household consumption of goods and services, at build-out in 2023, Rhythm essentially doubles the ad valorem tax roll of Washington County. The taxable value of Rhythm in 2011 is $754,106,000. Historically, as the taxable value of the tax roll increases, then millage rates decline, which is an across the county bene t. The Washington County School Board, which will receive about $35,000,000 during the build-out decade and $6,612,000 annually thereafter without a single student added to the cost structure. Rhythm will also pay about $3,343,000 in impact fees for roads, re, EMS and law enforcement. The Development Order to be issued upon an adoption vote of the Board of County Commissioners and a nal review by the Department of Economic Opportunity is a contract between the BOCC and the landowner, Florida Landings, LLC, which goes with the land just like the approved deed restrictions, community covenants and permits as they are approved. The BOCC has negotiated the DO so that the county has no upfront costs and county obligations after the impact fees and ad valorem taxes start to be received. There is a residual obligation on the county to maintain the roads and storm water drainage system after one year following completion and with the construction phasing, this obligation increases over the build-out decade as the population grows. A reoccurring question has been, What if development starts and then fails with only a small part of Rhythm completed? and the short answer is that the county will never have any nancial obligations beyond the maintenance of roads, the storm water system and emergency services, and those obligations will have only been developed to the phase last completed and should be self-sustaining from the ad valorem tax base. In all phases, the DO provides that the houses and people come rst and then the service base increases. Should growth stop, all capital investment will have been paid at that point because the county is requiring bonding before any construction phase starts, so operating costs for the utilities and home owners association will be low without any allocation of capital costs. The utilities will be owned and operated in a separate legal entity and the obligations for community operations transition from the developer to the homeowners association only as construction and sales phases are completed, while the remainder of the area continues in a natural state. Whats needed to get the Development Order and association documents approved? The planning commission is resolving concerns to forward the proposal to the BOCC for a public hearing on Thursday, Feb. 16 and then the BOCC would vote for adoption. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity would then have a 30-day period to review the approved version for any variation from their approval before it was approved by the Regional Planning Council in October 2011. After the DO is issued by the county there remains over a year of engineering and permitting to get platting completed and permits to build in-hand. Rhythm has the potential to be the catalyst for Washington County to move to a new economic level bene ting all county residents. The developer/ owner has met all legal and regulatory requirements for approval subject to votes by the Planning Commission and BOCC. Now Stocking Cross Ties and Concrete Blocks J.D. OWENS INC.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Special to Extra In January, even the Sunshine State can be chilly. Add a damp drizzle and 20 mile per hour winds to the mix, and it can be downright cold. Stand at the base of the Pensacola Bay Bridge at dawn in those conditions, and the word frigid comes to mind. But even the extreme conditions could not dampen the spirit of 16 of the Baptist College of Floridas students working with a new church in the Pensacola area. Each January, BCF and the Florida Baptist Convention partner together to sponsor a church planting practicum somewhere in the state. This year, the hands-on opportunity took them to the Gulf Breeze area of the Panhandle to assist pastor Gabriel Vargas with Iglesia Mision Casa, a Hispanic congregation meeting on the campus of the citys First Baptist Church. There are approximately 7,000 Hispanics living between Navarre and Pensacola, Vargas said. And they need a church to call their own. Vargas and his family began the work in August, meeting in Gulf Breeze because of its central location among those he is trying to reach. But the work has been dif cult. We are aiming at a moving target, he said. The Hispanic population is spread out, and many families are moving in and out of the area. In addition to the dif culties with his target group, Vargas is a bi-vocational pastor who works full time for a satellite TV company. Both his time and his patience were running thin when BCF Missions Professor Rich Elligson offered a team of students for a week. An elated Vargas jumped at the opportunity, and a joint venture was birthed. From the rst day, the project promised to be an interesting experience. I could tell it was going to be a challenge for our students, Elligson said. The activities planned were basically outside activities, and the weather forecast was not encouraging. Add to that the language barrier and the teams relative lack of cross-cultural experience, and I wasnt sure what to expect. But I shouldnt have worried. As usual, our BCF students rose to every challenge. The week began by promoting the new church to those commuting around the area. Team members bundled up in their warm clothes and headed to the bridge to hold signs advertising the church and hand out yers to passing motorists. It seemed kind of pointless at rst, said history/social studies major Tyler Hildebran. But when I saw the number of cars that cross that bridge during rush hour twice a day, I realized it was actually a pretty good idea. Those cars contained people; lots of people. Some waved, some honked, a few scowled. But everybody noticed the students and the signs, and that was the plan. After the morning rush hour, the students loaded onto the bus to explore the surrounding communities. Flyers were handed out in apartment complexes, housing communities, trailer parks and stores. When doors opened, the students shared the good news of Christ and invited people to Mision Casa. By evening rush hour, the team was back at the bridge, this time with signs spread out in sequence: Have a rough day? Tired? Frustrated? Need prayer? The nal sign advertised Free Prayer and directed cars to a parking lot where sympathetic students awaited. As evening came, the cold temperatures and biting wind returned. Dr. Elligson told us we needed to be exible, missions major Brett Lamberth said. But how can you be exible when you are frozen stiff? Again, the team wondered if the signs would be effective. It appeared that a thousand cars passed by, but only one stopped. Millie was a mother of two who had moved to the area some months before to escape a bad marriage and a bad school system. Now she faced a lay-off and was bitterly discouraged. She saw the signs during the morning commute and hoped the young people manning the signs would be back that evening. She said she needed all the free prayer she could get. As the group embraced her, they prayed for her, her family and her future. Millie gave everybody a hug, thanked them profusely and drove off. It was a gratifying and humbling experience, the group agreed. I guess Millie was our wandering sheep among the thousands, Lamberth said. The experience reminded the team of what Jesus said in Matthew 18: If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he nds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. The activities for the rest of the week included a movie night, manning a ea market booth and staging a one-day Vacation Bible School, all aimed at the Hispanic community. The project culminated with a worship service together with the members of Mision Casa. Overall, it was a great project, Elligson said. It combined all the elements we like to see: a challenging setting, the opportunity to do real and signi cant ministry, contribution to the formation of a new church, the blessing of encouraging one of Gods choice workers and his family, and enough surprises to remind us that God is still in control. 2077675 this saturday in and ROGERS INSURANCE AGENCY, INC.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Carrying a hammer, paint brush, sewing machine and plenty of thread, The Bap tist College of Florida in Graceville enthusiastically welcomed back the BUDD Builders from Missouri. Sup porting the mission of the college, the BUDDs (Build ers Under Divine Direction) are an eclectic group of re tired men and women who travel to BCF each year and share Christs love through their seless works of ser vice around the campus. They are typically found be hind the scenes hard at work on campus and throughout the Graceville community. They are on missions at BCF and have captured the very heart of the area. When we rst started coming to Graceville, there was a tremendous need, BUDD Builder Shelba Knight stated. Were here to serve the Lord and help wherever we can. Knight and friend Lynn Gay have been coming to the Graceville campus and have worked for several years with the BUDD Build ers. Most recently they have been spending their morn ings working in the Market ing Ofce and answering the switchboard phones. In the afternoons, they join other BUDD ladies down in the Log Cabin at Heritage Vil lage where they sew quilts, lap pads, and other items to distribute. The beautiful handmade quilts are deliv ered throughout the com munity and many of the items sewn are provided to childrens charities and organizations which raise funds and awareness of Christs love. They need to be shown love, explained BUDD Karen Mahoney. Many of these kids have no clue what love is. Its our job to show them Christs love. Thats why we quilt. While many of the ladies are busy quilting and sewing, the men are hard at work on special projects to improve the BCF campus and make it safe. Whether working in the dorms, housing areas, inside classrooms, or in Her itage Village, they are paint ing, trimming, laying down oors, and contributing to the general maintenance of the campus. The BUDD Builders have been offering their skills to the BCF cam pus for over ten years. For many of the BUDD Build ers, BCF has become a sec ond home. We love coming back! Were family! Were home! Mahoney exclaims. For more information about opportunities to vol unteer on the BCF campus, call 800-328-2660.

February is the month of National Heart Awareness and Valentines Day. Febru ary should also be a remind er for pet owners to educate themselves on their pets heart health. The best place to start is your veterinarian. If your pet has an irregu lar heartbeat or low heart rate it should be evaluated by your veterinarian and may indicate the need for a pacemaker. Pet owners are often amazed that their pets can live for years and feel much better than they have in a long time after receiving a pacemaker, says Dr. Ashley Saunders, assistant profes sor at the Texas A&M Col lege of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Even younger working dogs that assist in border patrol and drug snifng are able to perform their du ties the same way a normal dog would after receiving a pacemaker. Dogs with low heart rates tend to move slower and are likely to tire more quickly, because blood is not being efciently pumped to the rest of the body. They may experience symptoms such as fatigue, fainting, weak ness, coughing, and a swol len abdomen. Canine heart rates usu ally range from 80 to 150 beats per minute, but when rates drop below 80, pace makers may be suggested to provide the users with articial cardiac pacing thereby raising and stabiliz ing their heart rates, Saun ders explains. Veterinary cardiologists performing pacemaker sur gery generally set the pace of the heart at a rate specic to each patient allowing con tinuous stimulation for ev ery heartbeat. The two-hour surgical procedure is often done in one of two ways: transvenous (through the neck) or epicardial (through the abdomen). The most common method used in veterinary medicine is transvenous, Saunders said. This pro cedure allows us to create about a three-inch inci sion in the neck exposing the vessel and allowing the pulse generator or battery enough room to comfortably reside. Before the pulse genera tor is introduced, a pacing lead is inserted into the ves sel and passed through the tricuspid valve and into the right ventricle where it suc cessfully transmits an elec trical charge from the pulse generator to the heart. Saunders says surgical patients are usually kept overnight for observation and brought in for a onemonth check-up following the procedure and then eval uated every six months. Pet owners are advised to keep their animals calm for two to four weeks after surgery so they can properly heal. Pet owners are also ad vised to use a harness in stead of a collar if the pulse generator is placed inside the neck. A lead can be pulled out of place if the animal is too rambunctious during the two-to-four-week healing period, Saunders said. If this happens the heart rate may return to its originally slow rate. Once you pace a dogs heart, it often be comes dependent on the pacemaker. This dependency is less of a problem for pets after recovery because the body forms a type of cast around the pacemaker keeping it in place. After recovery, pace makers have a long life and function like a wristwatch battery. If the pacemaker be gins to show signs of wear, it will not stop automatically, Saunders adds. It will rst slow down, dropping the heart rate. Thats why the check-ups are so important. Canine matters of the heart are best solved by those who love it most its owners and its veterinarian, Saunders believes.

This Message Courtesy of Look for Bigger Problems Sometimes it is tempting to think that no one has problems like ours: Nobody knows the trouble Ive seen! But, if we look around we may realize that our problems may be small by comparison. Poverty in the United States is measured on a whole differ ent scale than it is in the poorest parts of the world. In the U.S., federal poverty guidelines consider someone to be impoverished who is living on less than $10,830 per year for a single individual (or $22,050 for a family of four). In contrast, the World dollars a day and extreme poverty to be living on less than one dollar per day. At a time when one out of every eight Americans is receiving food stamps, we dont want to minimize the problem of poverty in America, but most Americans are not going hungry the way that many are in third world countries. Roughly one sixth of the worlds popula tion lives on less than one dollar per day. At least we have food stamps, and no shortage of food. When we are facing problems, perhaps one solution would be to look for bigger problems to focus our efforts on; war, pollution, or world hunger. Not only will it take our mind off our own problems, but we will soon dis cover that trying to help others is a better use of our time and talent. In all things I have shown you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. R.S.V. Acts 20:35 FAITH Wednesday, February 8, 2012 B Page 4 Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com By the Rev. James L. Snyder I take a certain amount of well deserved, if I say so myself, pride in keeping a well-organized to-do list. If it is on that list, I am going to do it, regardless of the dif culty attached. The trick is to get on that list, which I guard with my very life. Not that I worship my to-do list, but I do reverence it with a great deal of deep personal appreciation. I think long and hard before anything appears on my to-do list. Once something is on my to-do-list, there it is for all and sundry to gape upon it. It is a deep honor for anything to be put on my to-do list. Another reason I take my time in putting something on that list is that the only way it can come off is if I actually do it. After all, that list is not supposed to be stared at but rather to inspire activity on my part. The other night I was busy with my to-do list, going over each and every item with the utmost care hoping that St. Nick would soon be there. Each item on that list needs to be carefully scrutinized and sometimes even underlined for emphasis. Often, I have to recalculate and sort out the items and give them new priorities. I must have been busily engaged for I did not hear the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage address me. Finally, it dawned on me that somebody, other than my inner conscience, was addressing me. I looked in her direction and said, Huh? I just said, she quipped, what are you so intently engaged in? Im working on my December to-do list, I said with a touch of irritation in my voice for being interrupted during such delicate meditation. Youre working on what? My December todo list, I said trying to get back into my sphere of supersensitive concentration. There was silence for a bit and then my residential companion broke said silence by saying, You do know what month it is, dont you? With an air of sarcasm in my voice I answered, Of coarse I know what month it is. Its December and Im trying to sort out my to-do list for the month. I think Ive got just about everything covered. Again, there was that silence that you could cut with a butter knife. So, she said rather thoughtfully. You are completing your December to-do list. Is that right? I grunted my approval and continued with my ultra-concentration work at hand. I really have no time for nonsensical chit-chat. My time is valuable; I have work that needs to be done. I cannot be side tracked by every little noise that comes up. I take great pride in working through my to-do list each month. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction knowing that I am actually accomplishing something and I have the records to prove it. If somebody would ever come up to me and ask me to prove that I have been busily engaged in pro table activity, all I would have to do is show them my well documented to-do-list. I hate to bust your bubble, but I hate when people say they hate to do something and then they go right ahead and do it. I wanted to tell her to save herself a bucket of hate and refrain from busting my bubble, or whatever she was trying to bust at the time. Then, being the gentleman that I am, I allowed her to say what was on her mind. I hate to bust your bubble, but it is February not December. Now there was silence from my end of the room. Being the good-natured person that I am, I just burst out laughing. Boy, I said heartily, you almost got me with that one. Ill give that one to you. Then I went back to my work. But it is February, she said more sternly than I have heard her say anything for a long time. It is now February, not December. I had to pause. Normally she does not play tricks on me like this. Most of the time she is an upstanding person and always tells me the truth, even when there are times I do not want to hear the truth. Youre sure its February? She smiled one of those smiles that really irritates me and simply shook her head in the af rmative. I know I am an easy turkey to pluck, but this was actually serious. With the rather stunned tone to my voice I ask, Whatever happened to January? It was then the laughter started. I must say it has not subsided appreciably since. She has a way of rubbing things in when I am wrong. If the tables were turned, and they never are, I would not take advantage of such a situation. I swallowed my pride, which I have had a lot of practice doing, and began to realize I had been working on a false premise. It was actually February, time had gone by so quick and I was so busy I did not realize how fast it was going. In Ecclesiastes 3:1, the man of God says, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. If you are too busy to know what time it is, you are too busy. The Rev.

The holidays are behind us, the new year is settling in and we have gradually slowed down because of the cooler days. Isnt it great how things all seem to fall in place just as they are needed? Though Valentines Day is not a religious holiday, I believe God uses it to get couples out of a routine and wake us up to what life is all about. There are three or four explanations to how Valentines came about. I dont know that it is that important that we know just how that it originated, but my favorite theory is that it began with the Feast of St. Valentine. This was a feast held in commemoration of a Roman priest by the name of Valentine who was famous for the love and charity he manifested to others. Valentine was arrested and imprisoned by Emperor Claudius II for assisting Christians who where being persecuted for their faith, and that he continued to marry young couples in love when the emperor ordered a stop to all marriages, that his armies might be stronger. While in prison it is said Valentine led a Roman of cer, Astaris, his wife and family to Christ, and the couples he had married would bring him red roses and gifts for his sacri ce. It is also said that he fell in love with the of cers daughter and would send her notes signed, From your Valentine. For these things he was beaten with rods, beheaded and buried on the Flaminian Way, Feb. 14, AD. 269. A church has now been built over his grave in honor of his sacri cial death. Now that I have your attention, you are probably thinking what does all this have to do with romance and love? First of all, St. Valentines love for people came from within, where he had a love for the author of love. You see we talk about love a lot and we use the word love very often. But to know love, the kind of sacri cial love that St. Valentine knew and that of what we read about in the Song of Solomon 5:9-16, one must know God personally. 1 John 4:7-8 tells us, Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. Did you see that? God is Love. So according to the scripture, to actually love, you must know Him Who is love. So, to know God, is to know love and to be able to love God. When a person is able to love and know God, he is then capable of loving all people. When a person is in love with God and all His beautiful creation, the love for your companion of the opposite sex then grows. Then we have the kind of love that helps us to ful ll, Ephesians 5:22-25. When a wife loves God and has a desire to follow His Word, she will be that loving, caring, attractive companion always that she advertised to be during their courtship. For true love never dies, it just gets greater and stronger and a wife should love and adore her husband today more than the day they met. Also men, when we follow God and His Word, you will always be that compassionate, romantic man she fell in love with. There is no such thing as being too old or married too long, that the King should not open the door for his queen (this includes car doors). Remember, a King is always proud to be seen with and honor his queen. This Valentine, again remember what I have said many times before, What every woman wants, is to be treated like a Queen, by a man who deserves to be treated like a King The holidays are over, its time to rekindle the re of love in your home, that it might glow bright in the years to come. So follow my lead men. To the queen of our home, the love of my life and my best friend, Happy Valentines, Judy, I love you.

Chamber of cial Julia Bullington announced the Holmes County Logo Contest on Thursday during the chambers monthly meeting. Holmes County has no branding, Bullington said. In marketing and advertising, it is so important to have that name-brand, something that symbolizes the area. To nd that something, the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, Holmes County Tourist Development Council and the Holmes County Economic Development Commission have announced a contest to produce the rst of cial Holmes County logo. The competition is open to any resident of Holmes County and encourages amateurs, artists, graphic designers and students to create a logo that captures and communicates the countys spirit, history, future and/or mission, according to the chambers website. Entries may be submitted at any time but must be received by the contests deadline of 4 p.m. April 13. The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners has voted to adopt this new logo, and it will be used by the county in a variety of formats, Bullington said, including but not limited to online, in print, on signage and in promotional material. Seven judges from various segments of the community will comprise the selection committee, Bullington said. A cash prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the contest winner. We are encouraging everyone to participate, and we welcome any submissions. If you have any talent or have a friend or relative who is artistic, encourage them to submit a logo, Bullington said.By Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Hundreds of walkers wearing red turned out on Thursday to participate in a Heart Awareness Walk at Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay. The Holmes County Health Department and Doctors Memorial Hospital partnered together to sponsor the event, which sought to promote heart health awareness. The walk was free and everyone was invited to participate. Walkers were encouraged to bring a hearthealthy lunch and commit to walking at least two laps or more. Heart disease is the number one killer of both American men and women, said Brenda Blitch, director of patient and public relations for DMH. One in four women die from heart disease, and most fail to make the connection between risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Friday was declared National Wear Red Day by the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women Campaign. Holmes Countys health care organizations encouraged everyone to wear red on Friday in support of cardiovascular disease awareness. We want to thank everyone for their support and participation, said Traci Corbin of the Holmes County Health Department. We hope that the event grows each year.Death of PDL man remains a mysteryBy Chris Olwell Florida Freedom Newspapers Twitter: @PCNHchriso PONCE DE LEON The long-awaited release of a public record provides some insight into what happened to a prominent Ponce de Leon man, but the exact cause of his fatal injury remains unknown. Lowell Kelly, an heir to Destin matriarch Mattie Kelly, died at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola on Jan. 20 after being on life support since he was found unresponsive Dec. 4, according to a Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce incident report. According to Glenn Hess, state attorney for the 14th Judicial Circuit, an autopsy revealed Kelly died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head, but the medical examiner was not able to determine how the injuries were sustained.

If its a homicide, then well treat it as a homicide, Hess said. But at this point, nobody knows. According to the report released Feb. 1, more than a month after the Sheriffs Of ce received a Freedom of Information Act request from Florida Freedom Newspapers the Northwest Florida Daily News, Kelly and several friends attended a party Dec. 3 at the Otter Creek Lodge at Vortex Springs, which the 59-year-old Kelly owned. Just before midnight, the manager, Joseph Farran, told an uninjured but apparently intoxicated Kelly that he needed to leave the party and took him to a nearby home, which Capt. Harry Hamilton told the Daily News was owned by Kelly. Farran told police he tried to assist Kelly up some stairs to the home, but about halfway up, Kelly tumbled back to the bottom of the staircase. He said he tried again and Kelly fell again, but he didnt see any injuries to Kelly. Farran said he left for about 20 minutes and returned with another man, Douglas Cain. Cain and Farran were able to get Kelly up the stairs into the home. The two men put Kelly in the bathtub to clean him because he had vomited, and after they cleaned him off, they decided to leave Kelly in the tub so he would be less likely to injure himself, and the two men left, Farran told police. About 6 a.m., Farran returned to check on Kelly and found him unresponsive in the empty bathtub. He called Tracy Collins, whom the report lists as Kellys girlfriend, and she suggested Farran wait to call 911 because Kelly was on probation. Collins called 911 around 7:30 a.m. after she arrived. The responding of cer noted Kellys face was swollen, particularly around the eyes. in the one thing that would make it great, and that is the ability to be able to work, Drummond said. We need to change the way that people see this area and the country. Drummond said his experience as a sign painter, a screen printer, a waitor, a fast-food server and a graphic web designer helps in his campaign, and he foresees it helping in his position in Congress. All my life I have been an artist in one form or another and have always had to look at the world differently than most others, Drummond said. What this means is that I have to look and see how things t together. When you paint, build a model or even build a website, you have to see how it is all going to look like before you even start the project. The ability to see what is at the end and how to get there is what is needed in Washington today. The main concern facing the nation today is the lack of employment, Drummond said. The problem is not having people that want to work but that there are no jobs for them to work. Every day in our area, we see roads that need work, bridges that need rebuilt, shops that need repainted and more. The reason is that there are no funds for them to work with. They cant get loans to get it done because of fear. If they have the funds, they are not using them because of fear that they will not have that cash on hand for later. We are in a vicious circle that needs to be broken. Drummond is petitioning to be included in the general election as a candidate for House of Representatives in Floridas 1st Congressional District. The seat is currently held by incumbent Jeff Miller of Chumuckla (Santa Rosa County). Because the new lines for the Congressional Districts have not been nalized, we are able to accept petitions that have been lled out anywhere in the state, Drummond said. Granted, it would be better to have them just from the 1st District area, but we can use all the help that we can get. As to the exact area that the district currently covers, it consists of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes and Washington counties. With 2,998 signatures, Drummond can be placed on the ballot for this upcoming election. For more information on Drummond and his campaign, visit drummondforcongress.org/.

FREE IN-OFFICE TRIAL By Shannon SeylerSpecial To Florida Freedom Newspapers Several area residents made the trip to Samson, Ala. on Sunday to enjoy a day of Sacred Harp singing. It was an all-day event with a potluck luncheon. Sacred Harp is an old-fashioned form of sacred music that has a long, rich history in this area. Gatherings of singers are often referred to as singings or sings, and are nding new popularity not only across the U.S., but internationally. Sacred Harp can seem challenging to beginners, but newcomers are often able to learn the shape note system fairly quickly. Sacred Harp is a form of early American music utilizing unique shape notes. The harp in Sacred Harp is a somewhat poetic reference to the human voice. Instruments do not accompany sacred Harp. There has been a resurgence of interest in this music after it was featured in the movie Cold Mountain. Sacred Harp went into something of a decline with the advent of more modern forms of gospel music, but hung on in various areas, particularly in the South. Today, one can nd singings across America, including many in Florida and Alabama. The Sacred Harp Book Company, which prints shape note books, is located in Samson, Ala. Samson is also home to the Central Sacred Harp Singing Convention, whose Spring session was held on Sunday. In attendance from Bonifay were Ben Smith and his daughter, Sarah Smith Shouppe of Cottondale. Ben Smith, a former quartet singer, is proud to carry on the Sacred Harp tradition. He observed that Sacred Harp singing has enjoyed a long history regionally, including in Washington and Holmes Counties. There are singings in Bonifay, Wausau, DeFuniak Springs, Panama City, Tallahassee and other nearby locations. Smith added that long ago, people would often travel great distances to attend singings, either walking or traveling by oxcart. Fortunately, its much easier to get to todays singings. Bill Aplin of Samson, a longtime singer who is active with the Sacred Harp Publishing Company, states that the convention in Samson has been in existence for over 75 years. In the early days, singings rotated between different churches, he notes, but the Central Convention has been held regularly at Travelers Rest Church for around thirty years. Sarah Smith Shouppe and other attendees are hoping to see more locals come out to experience Sacred Harp for themselves. A singing will be held in Blountstown on Feb. 18 at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement. Starting and ending times for all-day singings can be somewhat exible, but usually range between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., with a break being taken for lunch. Visitors are welcome, whether they choose to sing or just listen.Singers visit Samson, Ala., for Sacred Harp conventionJan. 23 Jan. 27MARRIAGES There were no marriages led this week DIVORCES Christopher Michael ONeal and Melissa Sue Terrell Ira Verill III and AnneLaure Verill Staff ReportJan. 22 Jan 28Gerald Dwyane Anderson, 19, Driving while license suspended or revoked, Possession of alcohol under 21 Aimee Lauren Aud, 21, Burglary, Grand theft, Criminal mischief Brian Ray Baxley, 22, Violation of state probation Vernon Bobby Bowden, Failure to appear, Driving while license suspended or revoked Louis William Cappelle, 30, Hold for Hillsborough Kristinal Elizabeth Carter, 19, Prison transport service Richard Nelson Caton, 53, Hold for Hillsborough Malissa Crawford, 28, Prison transport services Billy Lee Dreblow, 27, Violation of state probation Bryant Keith Felder, 33, Prison transport service Dezable Fielding, 50, Violation of probation on domestic battery Roger Alan Flege, 28, Prison transport service Robert John Focht, 35, Hold for Hillsborough Carol Ann Gates, 53, Sale of controlled substance Jeffery Michael Vincent Greene, 23, Felony battery, Aggravated assault with deadly weapon, resisting of cer with violence, Battery on law enforcement of cer, Disorderly intoxication Ryan Blake Grif n, 18, Armed burglary, Grand theft, Criminal mischief Ykaterin Gumerova, 33, Prison transport service Paula Jalynn HardinGainey, 28, Child support Tyler Wyane Hutto, 20, Assault, Criminal mischief Gordon Johnson, 37, Prison transport service Jerome Johnson, 30, Prison transport services Joshua Brodie Judah, 21, Driving while license suspended or revoked knowingly, Probation, Burglary, Grand theft, Criminal mischief, Possession of marijuana Carolyn Gunter Kimmons, 47, Interference with child custody, Criminal mischief Caleb Lee, 20, Possession of alcohol under 21 Jentina Bernard Littles, 34, Violation of probation on driving while license suspended or revoked Arthur McDaniels, 55, Hold for Hillsborough Tony Olien Moore, 36, Driving while licenses suspended or revoked, Possession of marijuana, Distribution of amphetamine, Resist of cer, Possession of drug equipment Benjamin Santos Myers, 27, Violation of probation on driving while license suspended or revoked Alex Phillips, 31, Prison transport services Sharrod Rogers, 40, Miami dade Jarrod Allen Runions, 38, Gustavo Sanchez-Palma, 23, No valid drivers license Reynaldo Santiaqo, 55, Hold for Hillsborough David Douglas Secord, 43, Prison transport services Ashley Sloan, Sale of controlled Substance 2 counts Chrishane Rene Smith, 19, Violation of probation on domestic battery Steven Joshua Smith, 34, Domestic violence battery James Samuel Tomlin, 39, Traf cking in hydrocodone, Sale of controlled substance, Resisting of cer without violence Marvin Lewis Turner, 38, Hold for Walton Cory Washington, 33, Hold for Hillsborough HOLMES COUNTY ARRESTS MARRIAGES AND DIVORCES SPECIAL TO TIMES-ADVERTISERSingers perform Sacred Harp music at the Samson, Ala., singing on Sunday.

Many of those in attendance paid tribute to Pauline Russ Baragona Cook Shores. After 40 years of teaching Mrs. Shores retired from Vernon High School her Alma Mater. Both her parents, Theron and Mary Brock Russ were educators. In fact the Russ name was well known in education in the Washington County area. My brotherin-law James Russ taught mathematics at VHS and later was principal of Vernon Elementary School. His father, Jim Russ also taught school for many years. The late Stella Creel used to laugh about how Mr. Russ and family would drive through town with the canvas curtains of their touring car apping and they would say, There goes Jim Russ. After Mrs Shores granddaughter spoke about things her grandmother taught her, several of her former students paid tribute. Yvonne Parish White was probably Paulines most outstanding student. Yvonne started her leadership role as an elementary student in 4-H Club and it carried over into Mrs. Cooks Home Economics Class. Under her guidance and help, Yvonne went on to become Floridas State President for FHA, Future Homemakers of America. Then she graduated from Florida State University, Paulines Alma Mater, and taught Home Economics for 31 years. She highly praised Pauline and her late husband Tom Wallace Cook for the way they encouraged her, carrying her to the many places she had to go as a state of cer of FHA. She praised the town of Vernon saying that Hilary Clintons coining the phrase, It Takes A Village ts Vernon, Fla. That is true. Though most of the adults who were there when I was in school are now gone, Ill always remember how that town always has supported the school and its students, taking a personal interest in even us kids from way out in the country. Other former students recalled some speci c things they learned in Home Economics. Several recalled the baby dress and the four-gored skirt that I mentioned last week. Unlike me, they were praised for their ne stitches. Some talked about the nutrition and the importance of color on the plate which she taught. Her niece who is left-handed recalled how Pauline taught her correct table setting. She had been told by her aunt that hers was correct, but exactly backward. I have trouble getting that across to my granddaughters. Angie Hinson Morris talked about the teaching of manners which is so overlooked today. In those days, saying yes Maam and yes Sir or no Maam and no Sir didnt have to be taught in a subject area. Those were taught at home usually. If not, it was soon learned at school. Manners is simply a matter of respect for the other person. In our Me centered, instant grati cation, fast food, drive-through society, it is so easy to overlook the common courtesies of saying Good Morning, holding the door, letting someone at the check-out go rst, or other thoughtful things. So many of the things we learned in Home Economics under the tuteledge of Pauline Russ Baragona Cook Shores have helped a lot of us make a better life for ourselves and others. I hope we have passed some of those things on to others. NOTE I have been asked to mention the Bonifay Womans Clubs game night which they are planning to hold on March First. Put this date on your calendar and watch for further details.Wednesday, February 8, 2012Well, week one in Chipley is winding down as I write this column on Sunday afternoon. It was a week ago my wife Shannon and I rolled into town, nishing up our nearly 800-mile ride from Arkansas and what a week it has been. To begin with, I had sprained my knee loading our belongings into the moving container, and by the time I got to Chipley my right leg had a grapefruit where my kneecap should have been. Thanks to Chipleys Dr. Greg Sloan I was soon back on my feet, but my rst day at work saw me lurching around the of ce like Frankensteins monster, which must have made a great impression on my new co-workers. Unloading all the stuff started Thursday when the U-Pack cube (called a ReloCube) showed up. UPack is basically a small trailer without wheels. You load it up, the freight company ABF hauls it to your destination, then you get to unload it. For me, the bene t was I didnt have to drive a big truck while hauling the car behind, and the cost was pretty much the same. The down side was that the U-Pack doesnt pack or unpack itself, so just a day past being barely able to walk, I got to unload all the junk that got me to limping in the rst place. Thankfully, the trek was much closer from the living room to Relocube this time around. As an aside, have you ever noticed how much stuff you have that you never really use? Most of my belongings are either books or movies boxes and boxes of books, which are way too heavy. Maybe I need to rethink this whole e-book thing and get rid of some of my hard copies in my library. I got a surprise Wednesday when Sarah Smith Shouppe called into the newspaper of ce and happened to get me on the phone. She wanted to tell me about an upcoming Sacred Harp singing in Samson, Ala., and was shocked when I actually knew what she was talking about. If you dont know, sacred harp is a type of shape-note singing that dates back to around the Revolutionary War. It was (and still is) popular in the South, and most people have encountered sacred harp on the soundtrack to the lm Cold Mountain, starring Nicole Kidman. Shannon was a member of the Shiloh Singers in Arkansas and that is the only reason I know any of the above information. But I had the good sense to pass along Sarahs phone number to Shannon, and as a result on Sunday Shannon traveled to Samson to sing with the local sacred harp contingent. Thursday I attended the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce meeting and was very impressed by the attendance and enthusiasm at the breakfast meeting. Seeing such excitement and participation in a small Chamber is a good indication that the business leadership of Holmes County is both proactive and hard working. Besides announcements on the upcoming Chamber dinner in March and the Chambers golf tournament in May, Julia Bullington also announced an upcoming contest to create a Holmes County logo. Finally, on Saturday we got the chance to just wander around Chipley and drive around the area a bit. The weather was perfect and we got to visit some of the local businesses, including the G & P Country Meats, Main Street Market, Goodwill, Freds and Sav-A-Lot. We also shopped WalMart (considering we just moved from Northwest Arkansas, the place where Sam Walton opened his rst Wal-Mart store, how could we not?) but we also did some grocery shopping at the Piggly-Wiggly in Chipley during our rst week here. For towns their size, both Bonifay and Chipley have quite a variety of shopping to offer residents and visitors. While many in communities, the slogan shop at home is hard to adhere to but Washington and Holmes county residents seem to have plenty of choices when it comes to spending their hard-earned dollars. Dont worry, I dont plan on writing a shopping blowby-blow every week For us, all these shops were new experiences and we found bargains and treats in each store. If you havent been to some of these merchants in a while, maybe you should pay them a visit. Who knows, if you look at them like you just moved here, you might just see something new, too.Sacred harp, shopping and too much junkHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Former students pay tribute to Pauline Cook-Shores HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

I was born Pheba Ann Oliver on, Sept. 26, 1904, in Ebro, Fla. My parents were the later Mr. Louis Oliver and Mrs. Fannie PetersonOliver. To this union seven children were born, four boys and three girls. The boys were James Henry, Will James, Samson and McNeal. The girls were Mamie, Idell and Pheba. My father was a laborer, and my mother was a midwife. I used to follow my mother on her visits to check up on her patients and when it was time for her to deliver a baby. At an early age, I became interested in the trade, and my mother began teaching me the art of being a midwife. It was a joy to help her with the delivery of a newborn. The 1920s were an extremely dif cult time to grow up AfricanAmerican in the United States. Racial prejudice ran rampant, and the Ku Klux Klan tried to rid this country of African-Americans, Indians, Jews and foreigners alike. Because of racism, there wasnt much in the way of professional work for African-Americans. The profession of midwife was both a need and respectable work. Recognizing the need for such care in the AfricanAmerican communities, I completed the necessary training offered at the Washington County Health Department and became a certi ed midwife. I remember my rst delivery. She was pretty young girl child. Her name was Shirley Hunter, and her mother was Burline Douglas. I was proud of myself and the ne job I had done to deliver this child. In many cases, my patients were not able to pay me nancially. They would pay their debt in produce and poultry. I understood their situation, and I gladly accepted their payment. During my time as a midwife, I delivered over 300 babies. Of that number, 78 were my grandchildren and 178 were my greatgrandchildren. My last delivery was in 1973. I delivered my granddaughter, Madie LeShae Bush. I retired after her delivery and didnt deliver any more babies. I grew up in the 1920s, and times were hard. It was customary for young girls to marry at an early age. I was only 16 years old when I married my rst husband, Isaiah Potter, on May 26, 1921. I left Ebro and moved to Millers Ferry with my new husband. Four months later, on Sept. 24, our son Hurtis was born. We were a happy couple, as happy as newlyweds should be. Our happiness ended when one of Isaiahs family members explained to us that we were closely related and that we should end our marriage. After verifying what had been told to us, we agreed to end our marriage. Isaiah died on Jan. 31, 1970, and Hurtis died on Dec. 16, 1981. As fate would have it, on Nov. 9, 1923, I gave birth to my second child. I named him Eli, which means lofty. Eli preceded me in death on Aug. 26, 1993. He was 69 when he died. One faithful summer day I received a gentleman caller who was a Muscogee Creek Indian from Holmes Valley. His name was John Andrews. Honey, he was de nitely easy on the eyes. Of all the young girls in my community, he chose me to be his girlfriend. He was indeed a dashing young brave, and might I say, he was handsome to boot. His olive skin and the two long black braids he wore on his head set him apart from all the rest. It was love at rst sight. I thought to myself, at last my love has come along. We dated for a period of time and were married on Jan. 31, 1926. He accepted my two sons, Hurtis and Eli, as his own, and he gave them his last name, Andrews. To this union eight children were born, ve girls and three boys. The boys were Harry, James and John Junior. James and John are twins, but they are not identical twins. The girls were Sarah, Madie, Fannie Dee, Emma Ann and Millie. Emma preceded me in death on, Feb. 6, 1987. She was 55 when she died. It has been said that all good things must come to an end. My good thing came to an end when my young Indian brave died and left me with 10 children to raise. My second son, Eli, was very supportive of the family. He worked outside the home to help provide for our daily needs. Meaningful jobs for young AfricanAmerican men were hard to come by, so Eli joined the army. This way a guaranteed monthly income would help support the family. Eli knew there would be time when young African-American girls would be taken advantage of by their Caucasian employers. To ensure this didnt happen to his sisters, he sent money home so they wouldnt have to work in the elds. Emma once said that Eli seemed more like a father than he did a brother. Emma felt that way because Eli made sure his sisters were well taken care of. Many years passed before I started accepting company again. After my children were all grown, I started keeping company with Alex Porter. Alex and I dated for a while, but Eli didnt approve of Alex dating me. He was being an overprotective son. Elis wife, Annie Mae, talked to him and helped him to understand that just as he had taken a wife, I too was entitled to take a husband. After all, I was a grown woman. Eli relinquished, and Alex and I were married. There were no children born to this union. My 10 grown children from my previous marriages and his grown children from his previous marriage were enough to satisfy us both. Alex and I had a long life together. One day Alex died and left me all alone. Much to my surprise, after Alexs death, I began to have a gentlemen caller. I told him that we could be friends, and that was the long and short of it. I didnt want nor did I need another husband at my age. Unfortunately, one of my sons marriage ended in divorce. He had a young son who needed a mother, and I was allowed to raise him as my own. It was a joy having someone to need and depend on me again. It goes without saying that I spoiled him rotten, and he spoiled me rotten, as well. He had me driving at the ripe old age of 78. Before then, I had never driven, nor had I ever tried to drive a car. His name is Lonnie, and he was the apple of my eye. He gave me so much joy because he made me feel youthful again. I loved all of my grandchildren, but I raised Lonnie, so he and I had a special bond. When my health began to fail me, we didnt have Life Alert Emergency for Seniors in my area. So, I had to live with my daughters on a rotating basis. As you can imagine, that was the last thing I wanted to do. I didnt want to have to depend on my children to take care of me. They wouldnt have it any other way. My daughter Millie was my guardian angel. She took me into her home and treated me as though I was one of her children. She was at my every beck and call. I couldnt ask for a better daughter. Dont get me wrong, they all took turns caring for me and they all took good care of me, but Millie just went beyond the call of duty. She made me feel so welcome in her home. Mind you, I was welcome in all of my childrens homes, but I was more comfortable at home with Millie. Maybe it was because my house was just a few hundred yards from Millies house. I was a very religious woman and an avid reader of the Bible. I knew and understood what the Hebrew writer said, in Hebrews 9:27, And as it is appointed unto men one to die, but after this the judgment. My time to die came on, April 22, 1999, at Bay Medical Center in Panama City. I was 94 when I died, and I leave a loving family behind. I am con dent they will continue to love and care for each other, as Ive taught them to do. In conclusion, Ive come this far by faith.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com.Hook harvest It is kind of hard to believe January is gone and February is here. With the passing of January, so go some sh laws. Remember years back when it was almost impossible to catch a red sh because there were none? Well, those days are long gone, and I hope they stay gone. The state stopped the keeping of red sh for several years. It also stopped the selling of wild red sh. Red sh have been one of the most successful comeback stories next to red snapper. For many years, an angler has been able to catch and keep one red sh per day. If there were 10 people in the boat they could keep 10 red sh. All that has changed. There has been a push to keep two red sh per angler either in a boat or on the beach. The state held several meetings for the public to voice its opinion on raising the limit, and I suppose the unanimous decision was to raise it. So now you can keep two red sh per day with one exception; only eight red sh can be caught and brought to the shore in a boat. Sort of like ling. Only six ling can be brought to the dock no matter how many anglers are in the boat. This is sort of good and sort of bad. At least now only eight sh can be caught and kept. But now, four anglers can catch as many as eight anglers could before. Another change that seems to be confusing speckled trout shermen is the number of trout an angler can keep. In our part of the state all you need to know is the number ve. Five speckled trout is all you can keep. Starting Feb. 1 there is no closed season on speckled trout with the exception of the Lansing Smith Steam Plant canal. That area always will be closed from Nov. 1 until March 1 to the keeping of sh with no exceptions. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netRETURN OF THE PHOTOS BY FWCSpotted skunks are smaller than striped skunks but just as adept as keeping away predators.By Stan KirklandFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission During the past few months, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission received a number of calls from the motoring public about dead striped skunks on the roadways of Northwest Florida. Seeing road-killed wildlife is nothing to be happy about but it does tell us something important. In its most base sense, it means skunks still are out there in the wildlife world. For a period of time that didnt seem to be the case. In the 1980s and even early 90s, calls and reports of skunks were almost nonexistent across much of North Florida. Even though striped skunks are nocturnal animals and move about mostly at night, their absence was noteworthy. During those days if we got a call about a (striped) skunk, you made a note of it. They were that rare, said Dr. Jeff Gore, a wildlife biologist with the FWC. Gore said it is only conjecture, but he believes its possible that a rabies or distemper outbreak in the 1980s had a devastating impact on the skunk population. Both diseases are highly infectious and easily spread among wildlife such as skunks, fox and raccoons. By the late 1990s, skunk numbers were apparently on the rebound. More than 2,000 Floridians responded to a 2002 FWC survey asking people to respond if they saw a skunk. The majority of the sightings were in the northern half of Florida. Florida actually is home to two species of skunks. The striped skunk is about the size of a house cat and the species with which most people are familiar. Striped skunks have short, powerful legs and are adept at digging. The species is an omnivore and will eat plant and animal matter, including insects, small reptiles and bird eggs. Perhaps the most notorious character of the striped skunk is its ability to spray predators with a strong-smelling and clinging oily uid. Spotted skunks, which are smaller and more agile than striped skunks, are also found in Florida and in much of the Eastern United States. For more than 100 years Eastern spotted skunks have been bred in captivity and the furs sold in the fur trade. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission During the past few months, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission received a number of calls from the motoring public about dead striped skunks on the roadways of Northwest Florida. Seeing road-killed After years of rarely seeing polecats, they are making a resurgence SKUNK FACTSSkunk spray causes no real damage to its victims, but it sure makes them uncomfortable. It can linger for many days and defy attempts to remove it. As a defensive technique, the spray is very effective. Predators typically give skunks a wide berth unless little other food is available.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com APage 7Section By Cathrine LambEditorial Assistant clamb@chipleypaper.com This week, with only 10 days left to the Bud Shootout, I have decided to give a brief history of the NASCAR sport. 1948 Started by Big Bill France Sr. and a group of ex-moonshiners. 1949 The rst race was June 16 in Charlotte, N.C. Jim Roper won the race driving a Lincoln. 1979 Live network cameras make debut at the Daytona 500. 1984 The King. Richard Petty. won his nal time at Daytona while President Ronald Reagan was in the stands. 1994 Stock cars made its debut at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Brickyard 400, now mostly known as simply the Brickyard. 2001 One of NASCARs greats, Dale Earnhardt Sr., was killed in the last lap of the Daytona 500. 2004 Dale Earnhardt Jr., won the Daytona 500, three years after his father was killed on the same lap. I know a lot more has happened between 1948 at the rst race and now the starting of the 2012 season. Bill Ford sent me an email asking for more information on why Danica Patrick was suing NASCAR. Unfortunately Mr. Ford, I couldnt nd anything about this except on the rumor sites, and me, myself, I dont have much con dence in any of the rumor sites. Keep those questions coming. Now for a quote from the late great Dale Earnhardt Sr.: Second place is only the rst loser. Until next week, if you have any ideas for a story, let me know at clamb@ chipleypaper.com.

Bozeman opened its District 4-1A tournament in Blountstown against Franklin County on Tuesday. The Bucks are one of the most improved teams in the entire state considering they already are 14-11 after winning two games all of last season. West Gadsden left the rest of District 4-1A in shambles this season and is expected to dominate the district tourney, but Bozeman could wind up securing just the second regional berth in school history. The Bucks tied with South Walton for the second seed, but lost out in a tiebreaker.

Then along came Tusculum College and his fears turned to elation. Last Wednesday, Oliver signed with the Division II school in Greeneville, Tenn., about nine hours from his home. He said he had other suitors, but the options dried up when the season began. I had some colleges look at me over the summer, but they laid off, Oliver said. I didnt think I was going to get offered and its very exciting. Tusculum contacted Chipley coach Rob Armstrong expressing interest in Oliver during the Christmas holiday break. The 5-foot-10, 170pound cornerback attended a combine at the school and he posted the fastest 40-yard dash time of 4.43 seconds. Its going to help me be a better man, now that Ive turned 18 its time to be a man in the world, Oliver said. When I get there I want to balance being an athlete and keeping a level head with my grades.

LocalA8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, February 8, 2012By Jim TownFlorida Landings, LLC EDITORS NOTE: Submitted by Florida Landings, LLC, written by Jim Town and veri ed by Washington County Senior Planner Michael DeRuntz. A Development of Regional Impact is a large scale planning process just below Sector Plans such as Bay Countys West Bay Sector Plan, or Knight Property in the southwest corner of Washington County. Plans are reviewed by appropriate state and federal agencies and local governments, which in the case of Rhythm involved Washington, Jackson and Bay counties. The Rhythm DRI was led with the West Florida Regional Planning Council in Pensacola on Feb. 29, 2008, and received WFRPC approval on Oct. 27, 2011, after all agencies had been reconciled for design concepts, maintaining over 50 percent of the 1,883 acres in a natural state to be protected by recorded conservation easements and it is noted that the Rhythm DRI was the only surviving DRI in the region since 2008. Rhythm is an age-restricted community for people 55 years of age and older and no school age people are permitted except as visitors for a short period. It will have 3,200 dwelling units in various formats such as single family, town homes, cottage homes and multi-family, all developed on a cluster neighborhood concept with a village center central to all neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has a park of at least six acres and all neighborhoods are connected by trails appropriate for golf carts and walking that include nature overlooks. Construction will be over a period of 10 years starting about mid-2013 and will commence with part of the central village and the surrounding neighborhood. The central utilities, initial community roads, storm water drainage, and almost $9 million of road paving on county roads adjacent and connected to the Rhythm area will be completed before the rst house building permit. Additional utilities, storm water drainage and development with permitting and control features imposed by Washington County through the Development Order. It cannot become another Sunny Hills with 28 square miles of roads and lots, but few houses. Rhythm will grow geographically as homes are sold and occupied. The sewer plant will operate at advanced level treatment, which is basically drinking water standard and the storm water drainage system will be to Outstanding Florida Waters standard, which is the highest state-level and there are no creeks or rivers in that area of Washington, Jackson or Bay counties that have been designated to this standard. The water Rhythm puts back into the ground will be at higher standards than currently prevailing in the geographic area. Utilities will be operated by a private utility company. The market for agerestricted communities is international in scope and Rhythms location relative to the Gulf of Mexico but outside the main hurricane zones ts a pro le that indicates a signi cant portion of the 76 million baby boomers want to live with access to coasts in warm climates. The most successful Florida age-restricted community is The Villages near Ocala. According to a study by the MetLife Mature Market Institute, 55 percent of new home buyers in active adult communities do not rely on the sale of an existing home for the down payment on the new home. Rhythm will have an estimated 5,000 to 6,000 residents and the retail/commercial facilities in the Central Village are sized for immediate needs only, so those 5,000 to 6,000 new residents will be looking for goods, services, banking and social af liations in Washington County. With a projected per capita consumption of $19,244 in 2010 a population increase in Washington County of 5,500 people adds about $105 million per year to the countys need for goods and services. This is an addition to the $430 million for building materials that could be mostly purchased locally. During the construction decade an average of 2,300 jobs will be created for onsite workers. Total county job creation would be inuenced by the increase in household incomes. In addition to the increased household consumption of goods and services, at build-out in 2023, Rhythm essentially doubles the ad valorem tax roll of Washington County. The taxable value of Rhythm in 2011 is $754,106,000. Historically, as the taxable value of the tax roll increases, then millage rates decline, which is an across the county bene t. The Washington County School Board, which will receive about $35,000,000 during the build-out decade and $6,612,000 annually thereafter without a single student added to the cost structure. Rhythm will also pay about $3,343,000 in impact fees for roads, re, EMS and law enforcement. The Development Order to be issued upon an adoption vote of the Board of County Commissioners and a nal review by the Department of Economic Opportunity is a contract between the BOCC and the landowner, Florida Landings, LLC, which goes with the land just like the approved deed restrictions, community covenants and permits as they are approved. The BOCC has negotiated the DO so that the county has no upfront costs and county obligations after the impact fees and ad valorem taxes start to be received. There is a residual obligation on the county to maintain the roads and storm water drainage system after one year following completion and with the construction phasing, this obligation increases over the build-out decade as the population grows. A reoccurring question has been, What if development starts and then fails with only a small part of Rhythm completed? and the short answer is that the county will never have any nancial obligations beyond the maintenance of roads, the storm water system and emergency services, and those obligations will have only been developed to the phase last completed and should be self-sustaining from the ad valorem tax base. In all phases, the DO provides that the houses and people come rst and then the service base increases. Should growth stop, all capital investment will have been paid at that point because the county is requiring bonding before any construction phase starts, so operating costs for the utilities and home owners association will be low without any allocation of capital costs. The utilities will be owned and operated in a separate legal entity and the obligations for community operations transition from the developer to the homeowners association only as construction and sales phases are completed, while the remainder of the area continues in a natural state. Whats needed to get the Development Order and association documents approved? The planning commission is resolving concerns to forward the proposal to the BOCC for a public hearing on Thursday, Feb. 16 and then the BOCC would vote for adoption. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity would then have a 30-day period to review the approved version for any variation from their approval before it was approved by the Regional Planning Council in October 2011. After the DO is issued by the county there remains over a year of engineering and permitting to get platting completed and permits to build in-hand. Rhythm has the potential to be the catalyst for Washington County to move to a new economic level bene ting all county residents. The developer/ owner has met all legal and regulatory requirements for approval subject to votes by the Planning Commission and BOCC. Now Stocking Cross Ties and Concrete Blocks J.D.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County NewsSpecial to ExtraIn January, even the Sunshine State can be chilly. Add a damp drizzle and 20 mile per hour winds to the mix, and it can be downright cold. Stand at the base of the Pensacola Bay Bridge at dawn in those conditions, and the word frigid comes to mind. But even the extreme conditions could not dampen the spirit of 16 of the Baptist College of Floridas students working with a new church in the Pensacola area. Each January, BCF and the Florida Baptist Convention partner together to sponsor a church planting practicum somewhere in the state. This year, the hands-on opportunity took them to the Gulf Breeze area of the Panhandle to assist pastor Gabriel Vargas with Iglesia Mision Casa, a Hispanic congregation meeting on the campus of the citys First Baptist Church. There are approximately 7,000 Hispanics living between Navarre and Pensacola, Vargas said. And they need a church to call their own. Vargas and his family began the work in August, meeting in Gulf Breeze because of its central location among those he is trying to reach. But the work has been dif cult. We are aiming at a moving target, he said. The Hispanic population is spread out, and many families are moving in and out of the area. In addition to the dif culties with his target group, Vargas is a bi-vocational pastor who works full time for a satellite TV company. Both his time and his patience were running thin when BCF Missions Professor Rich Elligson offered a team of students for a week. An elated Vargas jumped at the opportunity, and a joint venture was birthed. From the rst day, the project promised to be an interesting experience. I could tell it was going to be a challenge for our students, Elligson said. The activities planned were basically outside activities, and the weather forecast was not encouraging. Add to that the language barrier and the teams relative lack of cross-cultural experience, and I wasnt sure what to expect. But I shouldnt have worried. As usual, our BCF students rose to every challenge. The week began by promoting the new church to those commuting around the area. Team members bundled up in their warm clothes and headed to the bridge to hold signs advertising the church and hand out yers to passing motorists. It seemed kind of pointless at rst, said history/social studies major Tyler Hildebran. But when I saw the number of cars that cross that bridge during rush hour twice a day, I realized it was actually a pretty good idea. Those cars contained people; lots of people. Some waved, some honked, a few scowled. But everybody noticed the students and the signs, and that was the plan. After the morning rush hour, the students loaded onto the bus to explore the surrounding communities. Flyers were handed out in apartment complexes, housing communities, trailer parks and stores. When doors opened, the students shared the good news of Christ and invited people to Mision Casa. By evening rush hour, the team was back at the bridge, this time with signs spread out in sequence: Have a rough day? Tired? Frustrated? Need prayer? The nal sign advertised Free Prayer and directed cars to a parking lot where sympathetic students awaited. As evening came, the cold temperatures and biting wind returned. Dr. Elligson told us we needed to be exible, missions major Brett Lamberth said. But how can you be exible when you are frozen stiff? Again, the team wondered if the signs would be effective. It appeared that a thousand cars passed by, but only one stopped. Millie was a mother of two who had moved to the area some months before to escape a bad marriage and a bad school system. Now she faced a lay-off and was bitterly discouraged. She saw the signs during the morning commute and hoped the young people manning the signs would be back that evening. She said she needed all the free prayer she could get. As the group embraced her, they prayed for her, her family and her future. Millie gave everybody a hug, thanked them profusely and drove off. It was a gratifying and humbling experience, the group agreed. I guess Millie was our wandering sheep among the thousands, Lamberth said. The experience reminded the team of what Jesus said in Matthew 18: If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he nds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. The activities for the rest of the week included a movie night, manning a ea market booth and staging a one-day Vacation Bible School, all aimed at the Hispanic community. The project culminated with a worship service together with the members of Mision Casa. Overall, it was a great project, Elligson said. It combined all the elements we like to see: a challenging setting, the opportunity to do real and signi cant ministry, contribution to the formation of a new church, the blessing of encouraging one of Gods choice workers and his family, and enough surprises to remind us that God is still in control. 2077675 this saturday in and ROGERS INSURANCE AGENCY, INC.

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3Carrying a hammer, paint brush, sewing machine and plenty of thread, The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville enthusiastically welcomed back the BUDD Builders from Missouri. Supporting the mission of the college, the BUDDs (Builders Under Divine Direction) are an eclectic group of retired men and women who travel to BCF each year and share Christs love through their seless works of service around the campus. They are typically found behind the scenes hard at work on campus and throughout the Graceville community. They are on missions at BCF and have captured the very heart of the area. When we rst started coming to Graceville, there was a tremendous need, BUDD Builder Shelba Knight stated. Were here to serve the Lord and help wherever we can. Knight and friend Lynn Gay have been coming to the Graceville campus and have worked for several years with the BUDD Builders. Most recently they have been spending their mornings working in the Marketing Ofce and answering the switchboard phones. In the afternoons, they join other BUDD ladies down in the Log Cabin at Heritage Village where they sew quilts, lap pads, and other items to distribute. The beautiful handmade quilts are delivered throughout the community and many of the items sewn are provided to childrens charities and organizations which raise funds and awareness of Christs love. They need to be shown love, explained BUDD Karen Mahoney. Many of these kids have no clue what love is. Its our job to show them Christs love. Thats why we quilt. While many of the ladies are busy quilting and sewing, the men are hard at work on special projects to improve the BCF campus and make it safe. Whether working in the dorms, housing areas, inside classrooms, or in Heritage Village, they are painting, trimming, laying down oors, and contributing to the general maintenance of the campus. The BUDD Builders have been offering their skills to the BCF campus for over ten years. For many of the BUDD Builders, BCF has become a second home. We love coming back! Were family! Were home! Mahoney exclaims. For more information about opportunities to volunteer on the BCF campus, call 800-328-2660.

The derby starts at 8:45 a.m. with Hitter Orientation. The Championship round will begin at 3 p.m. What would you do if your pets heart suddenly stopped working properly? February is the month of National Heart Awareness and Valentines Day. February should also be a reminder for pet owners to educate themselves on their pets heart health. The best place to start is your veterinarian. If your pet has an irregular heartbeat or low heart rate it should be evaluated by your veterinarian and may indicate the need for a pacemaker. Pet owners are often amazed that their pets can live for years and feel much better than they have in a long time after receiving a pacemaker, says Dr. Ashley Saunders, assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Even younger working dogs that assist in border patrol and drug snifng are able to perform their duties the same way a normal dog would after receiving a pacemaker. Dogs with low heart rates tend to move slower and are likely to tire more quickly, because blood is not being efciently pumped to the rest of the body. They may experience symptoms such as fatigue, fainting, weakness, coughing, and a swollen abdomen. Canine heart rates usually range from 80 to 150 beats per minute, but when rates drop below 80, pacemakers may be suggested to provide the users with articial cardiac pacing thereby raising and stabilizing their heart rates, Saunders explains. Veterinary cardiologists performing pacemaker surgery generally set the pace of the heart at a rate specic to each patient allowing continuous stimulation for every heartbeat. The two-hour surgical procedure is often done in one of two ways: transvenous (through the neck) or epicardial (through the abdomen). The most common method used in veterinary medicine is transvenous, Saunders said. This procedure allows us to create about a three-inch incision in the neck exposing the vessel and allowing the pulse generator or battery enough room to comfortably reside. Before the pulse generator is introduced, a pacing lead is inserted into the vessel and passed through the tricuspid valve and into the right ventricle where it successfully transmits an electrical charge from the pulse generator to the heart. Saunders says surgical patients are usually kept overnight for observation and brought in for a onemonth check-up following the procedure and then evaluated every six months. Pet owners are advised to keep their animals calm for two to four weeks after surgery so they can properly heal. Pet owners are also advised to use a harness instead of a collar if the pulse generator is placed inside the neck. A lead can be pulled out of place if the animal is too rambunctious during the two-to-four-week healing period, Saunders said. If this happens the heart rate may return to its originally slow rate. Once you pace a dogs heart, it often becomes dependent on the pacemaker. This dependency is less of a problem for pets after recovery because the body forms a type of cast around the pacemaker keeping it in place. After recovery, pacemakers have a long life and function like a wristwatch battery. If the pacemaker begins to show signs of wear, it will not stop automatically, Saunders adds. It will rst slow down, dropping the heart rate. Thats why the check-ups are so important. Canine matters of the heart are best solved by those who love it most its owners and its veterinarian, Saunders believes.A A BOUT O UT PET PET TAL TAL K Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

But, if we look around we may realize that our problems may be small by comparison. Poverty in the United States is measured on a whole different scale than it is in the poorest parts of the world. In the U.S., federal poverty guidelines consider someone to be impoverished who is living on less than $10,830 per year for a single individual (or $22,050 for a family of four). In contrast, the World dollars a day and extreme poverty to be living on less than one dollar per day. At a time when one out of every eight Americans is receiving food stamps, we dont want to minimize the problem of poverty in America, but most Americans are not going hungry the way that many are in third world countries. Roughly one sixth of the worlds population lives on less than one dollar per day. At least we have food stamps, and no shortage of food. When we are facing problems, perhaps one solution would be to look for bigger problems to focus our efforts on; war, pollution, or world hunger. Not only will it take our mind off our own problems, but we will soon discover that trying to help others is a better use of our time and talent. In all things I have shown you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. R.S.V.

SnyderI take a certain amount of well deserved, if I say so myself, pride in keeping a well-organized to-do list. If it is on that list, I am going to do it, regardless of the dif culty attached. The trick is to get on that list, which I guard with my very life. Not that I worship my to-do list, but I do reverence it with a great deal of deep personal appreciation. I think long and hard before anything appears on my to-do list. Once something is on my to-do-list, there it is for all and sundry to gape upon it. It is a deep honor for anything to be put on my to-do list. Another reason I take my time in putting something on that list is that the only way it can come off is if I actually do it. After all, that list is not supposed to be stared at but rather to inspire activity on my part. The other night I was busy with my to-do list, going over each and every item with the utmost care hoping that St. Nick would soon be there. Each item on that list needs to be carefully scrutinized and sometimes even underlined for emphasis. Often, I have to recalculate and sort out the items and give them new priorities. I must have been busily engaged for I did not hear the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage address me. Finally, it dawned on me that somebody, other than my inner conscience, was addressing me. I looked in her direction and said, Huh? I just said, she quipped, what are you so intently engaged in? Im working on my December to-do list, I said with a touch of irritation in my voice for being interrupted during such delicate meditation. Youre working on what? My December todo list, I said trying to get back into my sphere of supersensitive concentration. There was silence for a bit and then my residential companion broke said silence by saying, You do know what month it is, dont you? With an air of sarcasm in my voice I answered, Of coarse I know what month it is. Its December and Im trying to sort out my to-do list for the month. I think Ive got just about everything covered. Again, there was that silence that you could cut with a butter knife. So, she said rather thoughtfully. You are completing your December to-do list. Is that right? I grunted my approval and continued with my ultra-concentration work at hand. I really have no time for nonsensical chit-chat. My time is valuable; I have work that needs to be done. I cannot be side tracked by every little noise that comes up. I take great pride in working through my to-do list each month. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction knowing that I am actually accomplishing something and I have the records to prove it. If somebody would ever come up to me and ask me to prove that I have been busily engaged in pro table activity, all I would have to do is show them my well documented to-do-list. I hate to bust your bubble, but I hate when people say they hate to do something and then they go right ahead and do it. I wanted to tell her to save herself a bucket of hate and refrain from busting my bubble, or whatever she was trying to bust at the time. Then, being the gentleman that I am, I allowed her to say what was on her mind. I hate to bust your bubble, but it is February not December. Now there was silence from my end of the room. Being the good-natured person that I am, I just burst out laughing. Boy, I said heartily, you almost got me with that one. Ill give that one to you. Then I went back to my work. But it is February, she said more sternly than I have heard her say anything for a long time. It is now February, not December. I had to pause. Normally she does not play tricks on me like this. Most of the time she is an upstanding person and always tells me the truth, even when there are times I do not want to hear the truth. Youre sure its February? She smiled one of those smiles that really irritates me and simply shook her head in the af rmative. I know I am an easy turkey to pluck, but this was actually serious. With the rather stunned tone to my voice I ask, Whatever happened to January? It was then the laughter started. I must say it has not subsided appreciably since. She has a way of rubbing things in when I am wrong. If the tables were turned, and they never are, I would not take advantage of such a situation. I swallowed my pride, which I have had a lot of practice doing, and began to realize I had been working on a false premise. It was actually February, time had gone by so quick and I was so busy I did not realize how fast it was going. In Ecclesiastes 3:1, the man of God says, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. If you are too busy to know what time it is, you are too busy. The Rev.

Isnt it great how things all seem to fall in place just as they are needed? Though Valentines Day is not a religious holiday, I believe God uses it to get couples out of a routine and wake us up to what life is all about. There are three or four explanations to how Valentines came about. I dont know that it is that important that we know just how that it originated, but my favorite theory is that it began with the Feast of St. Valentine. This was a feast held in commemoration of a Roman priest by the name of Valentine who was famous for the love and charity he manifested to others. Valentine was arrested and imprisoned by Emperor Claudius II for assisting Christians who where being persecuted for their faith, and that he continued to marry young couples in love when the emperor ordered a stop to all marriages, that his armies might be stronger. While in prison it is said Valentine led a Roman of cer, Astaris, his wife and family to Christ, and the couples he had married would bring him red roses and gifts for his sacri ce. It is also said that he fell in love with the of cers daughter and would send her notes signed, From your Valentine. For these things he was beaten with rods, beheaded and buried on the Flaminian Way, Feb. 14, AD. 269. A church has now been built over his grave in honor of his sacri cial death. Now that I have your attention, you are probably thinking what does all this have to do with romance and love? First of all, St. Valentines love for people came from within, where he had a love for the author of love. You see we talk about love a lot and we use the word love very often. But to know love, the kind of sacri cial love that St. Valentine knew and that of what we read about in the Song of Solomon 5:9-16, one must know God personally. 1 John 4:7-8 tells us, Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. Did you see that? God is Love. So according to the scripture, to actually love, you must know Him Who is love. So, to know God, is to know love and to be able to love God. When a person is able to love and know God, he is then capable of loving all people. When a person is in love with God and all His beautiful creation, the love for your companion of the opposite sex then grows. Then we have the kind of love that helps us to ful ll, Ephesians 5:22-25. When a wife loves God and has a desire to follow His Word, she will be that loving, caring, attractive companion always that she advertised to be during their courtship. For true love never dies, it just gets greater and stronger and a wife should love and adore her husband today more than the day they met. Also men, when we follow God and His Word, you will always be that compassionate, romantic man she fell in love with. There is no such thing as being too old or married too long, that the King should not open the door for his queen (this includes car doors). Remember, a King is always proud to be seen with and honor his queen. This Valentine, again remember what I have said many times before, What every woman wants, is to be treated like a Queen, by a man who deserves to be treated like a King The holidays are over, its time to rekindle the re of love in your home, that it might glow bright in the years to come. So follow my lead men. To the queen of our home, the love of my life and my best friend, Happy Valentines, Judy, I love you.
