Washington, Holmes team up By Randal Seyler Managing Editor rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Washington County Tourism Development Council voted last week to spend $5,000 in support of a rural tourism project, and Holmes County of cials are ready to do the same. The RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project is a multi-county consortium to bring tourism into the rural counties of Florida, said Jim Brook, director of the Holmes County Economic Development Commission and a board member of the RiverWay South project. The Holmes County Development Commission and the Holmes County Tourism Development Council will each provide $2,500 for the riverway project, part of a matching grant program to raise funds for the tourism effort. According to the RiverWay South website, the project is a public/private partnership that encourages sustainable economic development through the preservation and promotion of the natural, cultural and historical resources of the Apalachicola and Choctawhatchee River basins. Much of rural tourism is what I would call ecotourism, Brook said on Monday. Ecotourism has a lot to offer Holmes and Washington counties by the way of protecting our rivers and streams. The project also includes Jackson County and was based on a similar Counties to aid RiverWay South project WEB WATCH Visit www.RWSFL.org for more information. Investigators identify victims in fatal wreck By Angel McCurdy Florida Freedom Newspapers DeFUNIAK SPRINGS Of cials have identi ed the two people killed in Thursdays early morning accident. Andrea Hoffman, 20, of Holmes County, was driving a 1996 Chevrolet southbound on U.S. Highway 331 when she collided with an 18-wheeler, according to Lt. Tillman Mears, public information of cer with DeFuniak Springs Police. Hoffman, who investigators said also goes by Kristine McQueen, was killed along with her backseat passenger, 44-year-old Billy Wayne Donaldson of Holmes County. The front passenger, Rebecca Lynn Campbell Sapp, was identi ed by Tuesday by DeFuniak Springs Police. She was severely injured and transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola. According to police, Sapp is listed as being in serious condition. Were waiting on a ngerprint analysis, Mears said. We may also have her sister coming to identify her. Investigators believe the Chevrolet was traveling at a high rate of speed around 5:30 a.m. on U.S. Highway 331 near the intersection of Interstate 10 ran into an 18-wheeler crossing U.S. Highway 331 onto the west bound on-ramp. The car went completely under the trailer, said Capt. Mike Lolley with the DeFuniak Springs Police Department. Our initial reports indicate that alcohol was not a factor. Its a possibility that the car may have been transporting someone to a hospital, but we dont know for sure. CECILIA SPEARS | The News Attorneys Glenn Hess, left, Kimberly Dowgul and Kevin Carlisle, second from right, confer Monday during the Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun murder trial. The defense began and ended its case Monday and closing arguments were set to begin Tuesday. By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Johnny Mack Sketo Calhouns defense began and ended Monday morning. Calhoun is on trial for the December 2010 rst-degree murder of Mia Brown. Brown, 24, of Bonifay, went missing Dec. 16, 2010, when she was last seen leaving the Esto store where she worked. Her burned car was discovered in rural Geneva County, Ala., four days later, and Browns body was found in the trunk. Closing statements were expected to begin Tuesday, followed by instructions to the jurors. Calhoun did not testify in his own defense Monday, but John Sketo, Calhouns father, was one of the primary defense witnesses. Calhouns attorney, Kimberly Dowgul, had Sketo con rm Terry Ellenburg and he are owners of Precious Metals and that his son lived within the con nes of the Precious Metals grounds in a trailer. Sketo testi ed he arrived at work at 7:30 a.m. the morning Father testi es on evidence Bonifay elections scheduled for March By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Elections for Bonifay City Council were approved of in the form of a resolution at the Bonifay City Councils regularly scheduled meeting on Monday.

for loans, the lowest being BB&T (Branch Bank & Trust in Jacksonville) with an interest rate of 1.1 percent, the next to the lowest being SunTrust at 1.25 percent, then First Federal at 2.2 percent and then Capital City Bank at 2.39 percent. Id much rather go with the bank weve known and had business with for as long as Ive been mayor, Sims said. I know the names changed from Bank of Bonifay to First Federal, but its still the same dependable service weve always had and I feel strongly that we should stick with them. Cloud agreed with Sims. Wed rather have to spend a little more at home then have to go somewhere else with our money, Cloud said. Council member Roger Brooks agreed with both Sims and Cloud. I say we go with First Federal because its a bank we know and weve got a line of credit with them, Brooks said. Council approved of the rst reading of Ordinance 382, which allows the city to pursue the possibility of an ad valorem tax. This is just showing we have an intent of pursuing an ad valorem tax, Sims said. This would still take several months of advertising, public hearings and reading of the ordinances; I still dont agree with pursuing this tax to impose on our residents. The vote passed with a vote of 3-2, with Brooks and Sims voting no. Council also approved of the nal reading and adoption of Ordinance 381 accepting Waste Pro as their waste disposal service. Cloud said he recently participated in a meeting with the emergency management agencies and the Holmes County Health Department, and there was discussion of an emergency alert system that can be used via the telephone system, sending out alerts about bad weather, boil water notices, power outages, derailed trains, etc. The problem is that the current system were working with is based on land lines, and theres so many that have went to using cell phones only, and were looking at only about 5 percent who might be willing to add their cell phone to the data base for these emergency alerts, Cloud said. Weve got to nd a way to increase public awareness of this service and try to increase the publics participation. Cloud said for the entire county to have this service it would cost $4,600 annually, but that the Holmes County Health Department is willing to pay for $1,900, leaving $2,700 for the county to come up with to have this service for a year. I think if all of Holmes County were to chip in we could have this service and increase our ability to save more lives with up-to-theminute emergency noti cations, Cloud said. Bonifay Police Chief Chris Wells suggested using the Bonifay Down Home Street Festival to boost awareness of the Holmes County Alert System and see how much participation they could try to get from residents. I think if we could get enough participation we should look into this, Brooks said. This could help our emergency management agencies quite a bit. Sims also announced that he has requested that Wells order rain jackets for the of cers. Itll reduce liability for those members of law enforcement that have to face the elements on a regular basis, Sims said.

BRIEFS from page A1 program in Alabama, designed to bring visitors to the rural areas of the state to enjoy Floridas natural beauty and wildlife. Agritourism is also part of the draw for rural areas, Brook said, with visitors coming to visit farms from the cities to experience what agriculture is like rsthand. I would also consider farmers markets to be part of agritourism, he added. Agritourism has not been as successful as ecotourism in bringing in visitors, Brook said. Situated between the emerald green waters and white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the upland forest bluffs of Floridas highest vistas, RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee is the center of Northwest Floridas rich cultural, historical, maritime and nature-based region, a brochure for the program reads. Holmes Creek is one of the most pristine bodies of water in the state, Brook said, citing the creek as just one example of what makes this region a prime location for ecotourism. I have been told that 55 streams feed into that creek. It is a local and state treasure. Holmes Creek provides one of the most diverse habitats and richest variety of sh and mollusks in the Choctawhatchee River basin, according to the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts website. And according to the website, dozens of springs do indeed feed into Holmes Creek, including Burn-out Spring, Cypress Spring and Becton Spring. Its lower reach swells with azure springs, increasing average ow and providing distinctive stream havens for sh, reptiles and mollusks, the website states. A major summer congregation area for the federally protected Gulf sturgeon is just below the Holmes Creek con uence with the Choctawhatchee River. Holmes Creek is also richer in freshwater snail species than any other river in the Florida Panhandle, according to the website. Three as yet unnamed species of snails were found in the creek, Choctawhatchee and Chipola river drainages. Holmes Creek is a state-designated canoe trail and may be accessed by several public boat landings. Holmes County is going to step up, because it is the right thing to do, Brook said. We want to get people off the beach, up from Panama City or down from Dothan for a day, so they can see the natural, historic and cultural resources we have in Holmes and Washington counties. RIVERWAY from page A1 After colliding with the trailer the car went underneath the trailer and continued into the south shoulder. The car went under the trailer and it didnt stop, Assistant Chief Charles Burney with DeFuniak Springs Fire said. Obviously, it was a bad wreck. The driver of the tractor trailer was not seriously injured and declined medical treatment. DJ Fleischfresser, a server at Waf e House on U.S. Highway 331, said she was waiting on a table when she heard tires screeching and a loud crash. It didnt take long before there were cops and re trucks ying up there, Fleischfresser said a few hours after the wreck. Ive never seen anything like this before. We knew it was really bad when we saw the whole mess of people coming with their lights on. The westbound on-ramp to Interstate 10 was closed for about an hour but has since been reopened. The outside southbound lane of U.S. Highway 331 remained closed as of 8:30 a.m. as DeFuniak Springs police investigated the crash. Prashant Patel, general manager of Regency Suites on U.S. Highway 331, said traf c crashes are not uncommon for the intersection but in his eight years of working at the hotel he had never seen one as bad as Thursday mornings. Ive seen wrecks there but not like that, he said motioning to the crowd of rst responders gathered at the crash site. Hardly anything happens here, but today wow. When it happened it sounded like a bombing. Of cials with the DeFuniak Springs Police Department are investigating the crash. VICTIMS from page A1 after Browns disappearance, and the rst thing he noticed was a forklift missing. He said he then noticed Calhouns trailer was open and that the driver-side door of a truck was open, with items tossed out of the truck. Sketo testi ed he told Ellenburg to call the police because it appeared a piece of equipment, a Bobcat, was stolen, and the trailer door had been found open. Shortly afterward, Sketo said, they found the Bobcat was next to their dock, and it looked as though something had been pushed off the dock. He said he checked his merchandise and found nothing stolen, then proceeded to check his sons trailer, which appeared to be in a mess. He noticed his sons grill was on his bed and that no one was there. Sketo said he didnt nd his son in the trailer and left the trailer door open upon leaving. Brittney Mixon showed up around 8:15 a.m. in her fathers truck, asking about Calhoun, Sketo testi ed. He said Mixon went into the trailer even though he told her she shouldnt go into it. Sketo said she was in the trailer for a little over a minute and when she went in she had nothing in her hands; when she left, she had nothing in her hands. Sketo said she then went and picked up a puppy, put it into her fathers truck and left without a word. He then testi ed that someone showed up right afterward, saying law enforcement was looking for his son. Shortly afterward, a sheriffs deputy showed up and Sketo explained that someone hotwired his Bobcat and sat it on the dock and that the trailer was open. Sketo testi ed that he and the deputy went to the trailer, where the deputy asked to look in and then inquired about whether anything was missing. Sketo said there didnt appear to be anything missing. Sketo said when he and the deputy went into the trailer, they found his sons gun on the couch. The gun wasnt there before Mixon went in, Sketo testi ed. Sketo con rmed he checked to see if the gun had been red recently it hadnt and that he emptied it of the shells, which showed it was fully loaded. The deputy went to look at the Bobcat and said it was covered in dew and that they would have to wait to get ngerprints, Sketo testi ed. He said he then noticed two sets of tracks; there had been only one truck of which he was aware. He said it appeared, from the tracks, to be a one-ton, duel-wheeled rollback truck. Sketo insisted the tracks hadnt been there the day before. Those tracks went from the dock to the side of the junkyard. On cross-examination, Hess asked Sketo about nding the grill on the bed and the messy room. Sketo also con rmed that he didnt see Mixon take anything into the trailer, didnt leave with anything and was only in the trailer for a short while. Sketo also con rmed the truck in front of trailer was a scrap truck and had not been functional for a while. MURDER from page A1

The recent acquisition also expands Sunshine into a more diverse transporta tion company in the Pan handle, offering sedans, lim ousines, vans, local shuttle vehicles, and now, luxury motor coaches. The new arm of Finchs transportation business is Sunshine Coach. Dur ing peak season, the com pany will employ about 40 workers. Sunshine began in 2002 by John Finch, the owner of Sunshine Shuttle and Sun shine Limousine, as a sec ondary business interest. When Finchs development investments dissolved, he concentrated his entrepre neurial efforts on the trans portation company. The company has seen doubledigit growth three years in a row, and Finch says he expects even greater things with his latest expansion. Finch plans to capitalize on the success of the 21year-old Trumpet Coach and says there are 26 charters already on the books. Trumpets last full year showed annual sales of $5 million. Calls to Trumpet now come into our central ofce where we use state of the art reservation and dis patch software and equip ment. We have people avail able 24/7. Its a tough business, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Its seasonal to some degree but our bills come due every month. Adding the coach business to our already-established line of professional transporta tion options will allow us to provide year round travel to areas out-of-state as well provide service to our large local customers more ef ciently, Finch said. Sunshine works closely with many high-end resorts along the northwest Florida coastline to provide trans portation to the three major Panhandle airports. Sun shine also provides ground transportation at the Wynd ham Baypoint Resort, the Edge Water Resort the Ma jestic to name a few, and is the designated transporta tion provider for Southwest Airlines personnel at the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. It also has been the ofcial trans portation courier for events such as the state Seafood Festival and the Panama City Beach Seabreeze Jazz Festi val. Finch credits his tough performance standards for the companys continued success. I demand the best from my employees so they can provide the best service to our customers. We want to bring the limousine ser vice to the shuttle and motor coach business. In November 2011, for the third consecutive year, Sunshine Shuttle & Limou sine was awarded the 2011 Best of Panama City Beach Award by the U.S. Com merce Association. John was recently select ed to hold a board position for the Limousine Association for the State of Florida.

Local Wednesday, February 29, 2012 Tummy Aches A tummy ache is never fun for people, but it can be life threatening for your pet. Its not uncommon for most animals to have upset stomachs and vomit from time to time, but theres usually a simple reason, says Dr. Deb Zoran, associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Vomiting may be caused by a hairball in the stomach or small intestine or by other foreign material, such as plants, rocks or bones. Diet could also be a cause. If a dog or cat has had a change of diet or if it has eaten spoiled food, it can result in nausea or vomiting, adds Zoran. Just like when humans get food poisoning, the symptoms usually go away within 24 hours. The digestive tract is cleared and whatever was causing the problem is gone. However, if the animal has repeated vomiting, wont eat, or the symptoms continue for more than 24 hours, the animal needs to see a veterinarian immediately. Zoran says frequent pet vomiting can be a dif cult problem to pinpoint. The causes are numerous food allergies, infection or in ammation in the intestinal tract, foreign objects that obstruct the bowel, ulcers, liver or kidney failure, diabetes, cancer the list can go on and on, says Zoran. If the animal has been vomiting for more than 24 hours, the most serious problems are dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. The animal has lost body uids and they need to be replaced right away, then the source of the problem can be examined. X-rays can often detect the source of the vomiting, and as with humans, barium liquid can be administered to the pet to outline the digestive tract. Other tests that may be necessary include ultrasound, blood work, and an endoscopic examination to determine the problem. One key question is, does the cause of the vomiting come from inside the G.I. tract or is it hidden elsewhere in the animal? Zoran says.. If the pet owner detects blood in any food the animal has vomited, that should be a warning sign that something is not right. Unfortunately, it may not look like blood because the stomach acids will digest any blood present and the blood may look something like coffee grounds. The best answer is, if you dont think it looks like food, the animal needs medical attention as soon as possible, says Zoran. Other signs that should alarm pet owners: if the animal vomits every time it eats, vomits multiple times per day, or if the animal wont eat at all and appears to be weak and depressed. All of these are warning signs that something serious is wrong and the pet needs medical help immediately, says Zoran. Frequent or persistent vomiting in any animal is not normal. If the animal has been vomiting excessively, its essential that it sees a veterinarian. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Special To Freedom Florida Newspapers Ninth-grade Bethlehem High School students traveled on Feb. 17 to the Breman Jewish Museum in Atlanta as part of their study of the Holocaust. Accompanied by teacher Mrs. Lisa Mathews, the students were given an exclusive, allday tour with guest speaker and Holocaust survivor Ben Walker. Walker, from Romania, discussed his experiences during World War II. Afterward, the group took a guided tour of part of the museum and impressed the tour guide during interactive discussions with their knowledge of the Holocaust. The curriculum specialist at the museum, Sally Levine, led a group discussion about certain artifacts that were not on display. Later, the students toured the museum at their leisure. According to Mrs. Mathews, the students were able to truly connect with what we have studied in the Holocaust class this year. The trip was a very emotional, heartfelt experience for the students and adult chaperones one we will never forget. Impressed with the students knowledge and educational preparation, the museums regional director invited Mathews to be a part of the upcoming summer seminar at the Breman Jewish Museum as a presenter. Mathews and her students had presented their trip plans to the Holmes District School Board after initially being denied the chance to go. All but one board member, Gary Scott, enthusiastically gave their vote for the educational opportunity. Students attending the trip were Josh Jordan, David Boatwright, Alex Williams, J.J. Graham, Trace Head, Brett Mitchell, Eli Hendrix, Daniel Brown, Chase Rogers, Andrew Williams, Tyler Macro, Charity Jones, Jordan Ingle, Taylor Purvee, Sabrina Justice, Quinton Jones, Chylin Hunter, Tori Kirkland, Kelsey Stewart, and Shayne Drake.

My recently found friend, Chipley native James Vernon Lewis, now living in Bedford, Virginia, has advised by email that he has recently, in sur ng the internet, came across the May 18, 2011 Perrys Prattle. He wrote: The writing, Jukes a Joy in the 30s and 40s (with picture of Green Lantern), brought back some memories to me that I feel compelled to share. I recall the Green Lantern from 1943. We lived across the railroad from it, up a ways toward Chipley, on Ef e Bar elds sharecropper place. My step-father, Holly Matthews, put in a crop for her that year. The house was very near the railroad and I would stand on the porch and wave at the engineer as the train roared by. Now and then, an engineer would toss out a can of sour kraut and motion for me to go get it. I was nine years old. Vernon Lewis continues with his memoirs: One Saturday morning early in 1942, Holly, Mama, sister Betty and myself all walked to downtown Chipley to catch the bus to Lynn Haven about forty miles south, near Panama City. Sister, Louise, was still a baby and had to be carried in arms. I recall that it was a beautiful, brisk morning and the freshness of Spring was in the air. We were going to visit Hollys older brother, Henry, whom we children had never seen. The experience continues: On arriving in Lynn Haven, we got off the bus and went inside a juke joint, a lowclass restaurant that served beer and had a Wurlitzer juke box, where we children and mama waited while Holly went to nd where his brother lived. By that time, it was around twelve or one oclock in the afternoon and a slow, drizzling rain had set in. We waited there for most of the afternoon, during which time two new country songs were played, rst one and the other, over and over, on the juke box. They were by the newest country music star, Ernest Tubb. One side of the record was WALKING THE FLOOR OVER YOU and the ip side was BE HONEST WITH ME. In those days, it cost a nickel to play one tune on the juke box or three songs for a dime. In this communication, Lewis did not tell whether his step-father ever found his brother for a family visit, but does continue his recollection of juke joints of the area and his becoming involved in playing music with some of his Chipley friends. I know the place later became Chuck and Eddies, but, to me it has always been the Green Lantern. Several years later, after we had moved around and about, we had nally moved back to Chipley. I was walking one day down the railroad track, on past the Ef e Bar eld place, to the Green Lantern, which was about a quarter of a mile on down the tracks from the old mule watering hole. Even though the Green Lantern was a juke joint, they also had a swimming pool in back and you could swim all day for a quarter. So I would go there whenever I could get hold of a quarter. Vernon Lewis continues with this harrowing experience: On this particular day, I had got to a point at about the middle of the railroad trestle over the branch where we watered the mules at noon when farming the Ef e Bar eld place. All of a sudden I heard a train whistle and looked up to see the train coming around a curve from the direction of Bonifay. It was barreling down the track at a great speed and I saw immediately that I could not make it to either end of the trestle before the train got there. So I swung off over the side and hung by my hands from a cross tie while it roared by. If the crew had picked that moment to dump the coals from the re box, I would have been in big trouble. As it was, I escaped with nothing damaged but my dignity. Vernon Lewis continues with his own experience of playing music. I, along with Sam Shuemake (later Mayor of Chipley) and a guy named Shorty Saunders had been getting together to play music. Sam and Shorty played guitar and I played guitar and other instruments Upon deciding that the threesome might have a chance of going somewhere with the music, Lewis reports that a Mr. Brock who operated a business near Blue Lake gave them an opportunity to play with the only promise of pay being passing the hat around a couple of times for whatever the customers were willing to put in. At that time, they were hearing Eddy Arnold on the juke box with his popular country and western song TEXARKANA BABY. The musicians branched out to do a gig at an establishment near the stockyard, east of Chipley and after they had added harmonica and an improved bass ddle. This was done by running a string through the bottom of a zinc wash tub and tying it to a stick. The bass sound was obtained by plucking on the string. Voluntary contributions produced three or four dollars each on Friday and Saturday nights. Not bad spending money for school boys, concluded Vernon. His music playing continued after he secured a job with Bell Telephone clearing underbrush from beneath lines from Jacksonville to Mobile. The crew was moving through Chattahoochee, Florida and the work was done by bush hooks and machetes. By this time he had become acquainted with the songs of Jimmie Rodgers and was associated with other workmen who also played instruments. When the boss took extended lunch breaks, a fellow picker would hand over his guitar and say: Cousin Vernon, how about playing us one of them Jimmy Rodgers tunes. That was his cue to sing PEACH PICKING TIME IN GEORGIA and maybe WAITING FOR A TRAIN before throwing in an instrumental such as WILDWOOD FLOWER. Altogether, I enjoyed a rather happy summer, reports our guest contributor. See you all next week. Monday I had my rst chance to sit down and visit with Jim Brook, executive director of the Holmes County Development Commission. We started off talking about the RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project (there is a story about that conversation elsewhere in todays newspaper) but we also touched on the topic of the megasite which has been proposed for somewhere along the Interstate 10 corridor. As Florida Freedom Newspapers reported earlier this month, the Bay County Economic Development Alliance has partnered with three entities to bring a big project to the I-10 corridor. The Alabama Development Of ce, Enterprise Florida and the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce are partnering in a project to develop a mega-site near Interstate 10. When two states and a multitude of counties get together, good things can happen, Neal Wade, executive director of the Bay EDA, said on Feb. 16. A site on State Highway 77 and I-10 is being considered, but it is just one of many sites being considered and no particular site or even state has been chosen for the mega-site. Brook and I discussed the southeasts success in getting big automobile maker facilities to locate in this corner of the country. Arkansas, my former state of residence, was always an also-ran in the contests, especially courting Nissan a few years back for a plant that wound up being built in Canton, Miss., just north of Jackson. That plant opened in May 2003 and cost about $1.4 billion to build. It is, according to money.cnn. com, about the size of six football stadiums and is full of robotics and cutting edge technology. Brook is excited about the prospect of a megasite, and so am I. The mega-site doesnt have to be within our county borders to still do a lot of good for Washington and Holmes counties. Building something like a Nissan or Hyundai plant could also bring a string of satellite support facilities. When I wasnt being a journalist in the s, I worked in human resources for an OEM manufacturer of aluminum wheels Superior Industries so I got a bit of rsthand experience in the automotive manufacturing world. Auto manufacturing depends on a score of suppliers making the parts that are needed to put that automobile together those parts have to be made somewhere, and that means more jobs not only or existing plants, like my former employer Superior, but it also can mean new plants. One drawback to a mega-facility is there have to be the people around to work in the plant. Back to the money.CNN.com article: But even as Nissan began construction in April 2001, the company had to wrestle with the question of how it would staff the plant, which was expected to employ 5,300 people and generate thousands of other jobs for local suppliers and service providers. To get employees, Nissan sent in an ace HR squad. Also Nissan paid about double the average industrial wage in a state notorious for low-paying jobs. The recruiters received more than 100,000 phone calls, letters, resumes, and applications. They held job fairs in all 82 of the states counties and sometimes encountered lines of job seekers stretching more than half a mile. And that is my point. A mega-site landing anywhere between Tallahassee and Mobile would be like a volcano erupting. It would be hard not to be affected by such an event. Brook said one of the questions he often gets is why isnt there a Cracker Barrel in Bonifay. Theres an old saying that Brook likes to cite by way of explanation. Retail follows roofs. And roofs follow jobs. A mega-site could de nitely mean jobs for northwest Florida and southwest Alabama. It would be a regional game-changer. It wont happen overnight, but it is possible, and with the proactive leadership found in northwest Florida, I think if anyone could make it happen it would be our local Chamber and economic development of cials. Ive been nothing but impressed with the leaders Ive met in Holmes and Washington counties so far. And who knows? If the mega-site comes to pass, we might even warrant a Cracker Barrel or two some day.

OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Wednesday, February 29, 2012 Photos by MIKE CAZALAS | Florida Freedom Paul Larrabee of Jacksonville, right, has been bringing his RV to the track for a couple of decades. Hes joined on this trip by his friend Jerry Taylor, left, and Karen Jo Taylor. At right, its Florida, so amingos are never out of place. Below, RVs just outside the track dont have a view of the racing, but they are close enough to the edge of the track to hear it. Daytona a haven for RV lovers By Mike Cazalas Florida Freedom Newspapers The great outdoors might not be for everyone, but when the great outdoors is that area outside the Great American Race at Daytona International Speedway youll nd some of the most avid RV enthusiasts in the country. Its not camping, Paul Larrabee, 60, said as he sat on an orange cushion on a black collapsible chair bearing the No. 3 of Dale Earnhardt which sat on a trailer along with a matching wicker loveseat, wicker chair and a table outside his RV. Its a lifestyle. The trailer is to haul Larabees American Iron Horse Texas Chopper. He left the Harley-Davidson at home. Traveling to Daytona has been part of Larrabees lifestyle for almost 30 years, and for the past 20 years that has included traveling in an RV and renting a space on the grounds outside the track. A spot can be had for $575, and its a popular choice Larrabee knows many of his neighbors since they all end up in the same spot twice a year when NASCAR comes to Daytona. Once you get a spot, you have rst rights to rent it for the next race, and people dont give that up too easily. Because once a spot is claimed, the owner is freed from the hassles facing tens of thousands of fans trying to get to and from the track each day during race weeks. Entering the grounds of Daytona the RVs spread out before your eyes like misplaced train cars that were once in a perfect alignment but were slightly shaken and left slightly askew. Theres symmetry to it, an alignment that comes off as orderly to the passerby but which would drive an engineer crazy. Some RVs, such as Larrabees, though still perfectly serviceable, might have seen better days he paid $65,000 for it a couple of decades ago. It doesnt stand out as being faulty or in ill-repair; its just across the street from a Fleetwood that cost about $150,000. And they go up from there, he said. Only a few RVs away, Melody Hoffman of Greencove Springs sat with her parents on collapsible chairs with only a large checkeredag-designed rug separating them from her Coachmen Sport Coach, which set her back about $130,000 when she bought it eight years ago. Is it worth it? Absolutely it was, Hoffmann, 58, said. Its just so great meeting all these different people. We people watch, and everyone stops by to say hello, its just so friendly. Hoffmann wasnt a race fan nine years ago. I had never been to a race in my life, and I was invited to come here eight years ago, she said. That was in February and we bought the RV in March, and weve been here ever since. Hoffmann even offered a tour of the RV while explaining the bene ts and comforts of traveling that way, whether its to a race or any location. There was plenty of room, the air conditioning was a relief and an array of fruits, waters and wine lined the counter. When you just go by car, you park wherever youre going and you dont get the full experience, she said. We get to sit here, watch and talk, and theres just something exciting about it when the cars are roaring around out there whether its a practice or a truck race or whatever. Those who have been around longer, such as Larrabee, describe the RV area outside the track as its own community, even carrying different standards than the RV city that goes for a much higher price in the in eld. No one locks there doors out here, we watch out for each other, Larrabee said. The camaraderie in our section is real, its almost always the same people. In the in eld, he said, it can turn into a party that doesnt end until the wee hours of the morning. That doesnt mean its sedate outside the track, a point driven home by his consumption of large quantities of energy drink Friday morning. It was a rough night, he said. We gured wed just blow it out and get it over with, but we start rolling the carpet up about 11 p.m. In there, he continued, his head leaning toward the in eld, they keep going until 3 or 4 in the morning. They can have it. Florida Freedom Paul Larrabee of Jacksonville, right, has been bringing his RV to the track for a couple Paul Larrabee of Jacksonville, right, has been bringing his RV to the track for a couple symmetry to it, an alignment was plenty of room, the air LIFESTYLE ITS NOT CAMPING; ITS A The old deer saying is face into the wind because deer always will have their noses to the wind. That looks good on paper, but it doesnt always work. Last year, I killed a very nice buck that Phil down at Kritter Kreations mounted. I made the comment at the time I was satis ed with this mount and I didnt really care if I ever killed another one. I dont have enough room in my living room for a bunch of dead animals, bucks or otherwise. My son went to Texas and brought back a big one that takes up half the living space, and mine sort of lls out the rest. When I said I didnt really care if I killed another one, someone must have been listening because it looks as if I never will. But I really dont think I was telling the truth. I took off a week the past few days to see if a deer in rut would wander under my climber. I didnt mean for it to literally walk under it, sort of walk off to the side and give me enough time to get ready. I was sort of facing the wind, but not exactly looking into it. The woods to my left were clear and in the spot I was I never had seen a deer come from that direction. I was sort of surprised when I heard something walking with the wind behind me. My peripheral vision should have picked up this animal before it got too close but I was wearing a light piece of cloth to keep mosquitoes out of my face and it blocked the animal from view. By the time I saw him, he was right under me. It was one of the prettiest 10-points I have seen alive. The deer walked directly under my stand and in the process looked directly up at me. I know there are plenty of you deer hunters out there who would say I should have killed that deer. Im here to tell you, I dont think so. If I had blinked an eye, he would have been off in a shot. I noticed his hackles rising on his back, and I knew the jig was up. In a second, he blew out of there like the space shuttle. He ran a zigzag course between pine trees, which made it more than dif cult to get a shot. I hollered at him, but he ran more than 100 yards before he stopped. I popped off a shot and didnt cut a hair. I searched for blood and all the things you look for in that situation. All in all, I would do it over again just to be able to look in that animals eyes and stare at those gorgeous antlers. They were chocolate in color, and it looked as though he had been ghting because the outer edges were white. Like the kid who killed the pig, the memory will remain with me forever.

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com A Page 9 Section By Pat McCann Florida Freedom Newspapers LAKELAND Jazz Flock scored four of her gamehigh 17 points in the nal 30 seconds as Ponce de Leon held off Holmes County 52-42 on Feb. 21 in a Class 1A semi nal of the girls basketball tournament at The Lakeland Center. Flock had 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Pirates, 27-2, survived their county rival to advance to Wednesdays championship game against Newberry, which eliminated Hilliard 49-45 earlier Tuesday. The nal will begin 9 a.m. CST. Holmes County nished 14-13, three of the losses to Ponce de Leon located just 18 miles away from Bonifay. The Pirates led throughout the rst half, but missed a golden opportunity to take control by halftime when they made just eight of 20 free-throw attempts and shot 20 percent from the eld. Still they led 16-11 after a lackluster opening two quarters, Flock already with eight points and six rebounds. Each team found its offensive touch in the second half. Ponce de Leon led 30-23 after three quarters, but Holmes County responded to inch ahead 32-31. Ashley Harper and JoJo Carlson hit consecutive 3-pointers and Harper scored again as PDL regained control. Two free throws by Flock opened a 44-32 cushion, but Mikayla Moore, who scored all 13 of her points in the second half led Holmes County back within seven. A basket by Harper, who survived a miserable rst half offensively to post 12 points and 10 rebounds made it 48-39 for the Pirates with 1:37 remaining. Cierra Davis made a 3-pointer to cut the de cit to 48-42 for the Blue Devils, but that was as close as they would get as Flock nished off the scoring. One of the keys for the Pirates, who advanced to their rst state championship game since winning the Class 2A title in 2000 was making 13 of 16 free-throw attempts in the second half. They were 21-36 for the game, Holmes County just 4-10 at the line. Hannah Howell returned from a lengthy injury rehabilitation to score 11 points for the Blue Devils despite fouling out with 3:15 left in the fourth quarter. Freshman Justice Taylor had eight points while also playing with four fouls. Ponce de Leon coach Tim Alford pointed to free-throw shooting as one of the obvious keys. Actually it was huge, Alford said. In the rst half it was awful, but we got much better made some down the stretch. Holmes County was limited by foul trouble throughout, Jessica Belser already with four by halftime. That had an effect on the Pirates strategy when the Blue Devils cut the lead to six in the nal minute. Just try to take good shots, hopefully try to be more patient with the ball, get the ball down on the block, Alford said. We got it inside. They had gotten into some foul trouble. Alford said that the spaciousness of the venue may have had something to do with the teams combining for just 27 points in the rst half. He knows his ballclub cant afford a similar start against Newberry, which also is 27-2. Theyre athletic, weve de nitely got our work cut out for us, he said. I dont know what the secret is to playing in that arena. It took some time getting us calmed down, but (Holmes County) was uptight, too. The defeat ended a spirited postseason run for Holmes County, which nished runner-up in its district but then posted upsets against Paxton and Malone to reach the Final Four for just the second time in school history. For Coach Devon Miles it was a game of missed opportunities. Failure to box out on rebounds heightened foul trouble in the nal seconds before halftime and helped PDL to its ve-point edge. We just didnt hit enough shots, but the difference in the game was rebounding and free throws, Miles said. Hannah Howell, she only played about 2 minutes against Malone and she played really well considering she hadnt had a full practice in about 40 days. We had to press because theyre so much bigger, and I thought we did a good job of playing defense in the rst quarter and didnt capitalize on it. We missed a lot of easy shots. Miles, who is a friend of Alfords, said he wont have any problem shifting his allegiance to Ponce de Leon for Wednesdays championship game. Ill be cheering for them, he said. I dont know about the girls. They might be pulling for them to win, but I dont know if theyll be cheering. Theyre such big rivals, you know.

PDL holds off Holmes County Flock stops Devils nal push as Pirates advance JAZZ FLOCK led Ponce de Leon with 17 points ASHLEY HARPER hit two 3-pointers and 12 total points Malone rallies past Holmes County By Brad Milner Florida Freedom Newspapers MALONE Rural Class 1A was designed to give smaller schools a better chance of playing for state titles. The trouble for Malone and Holmes County on Feb. 21 was having to play each other in the opening round. Chris Murffs 3-pointer with ve seconds to play gave Malone a 50-48 victory in the Region 1-1A semi nal battle pitting two of the states top teams. Malone (253), which overcame a 15-point second-half de cit, advanced to host Chipley for the regional title on Saturday. The Rural atmosphere in Malones tightly packed gymnasium was like a scene straight out of Hoosiers. Spectators were shoulder to shoulder and their toes touched players trying to inbound on the opposite side from the team benches. The home crowd wasnt as boisterous in the rst half as it was in the second. But when a 30-15 Holmes County lead turned into a 38-37 Malone advantage early in the fourth quarter there was no denying the home court worked in the Tigers favor. The crowd was incredible and thats why you want to win district to get them at home, Malone coach Steve Welch said. We never gave up. Thats a testament to everybody. Holmes County (21-7) may have had the giant on the oor in Chris Walker, but the Tigers rafters provided the proof of which program had been to the mountain top. Malone proudly displayed its 13 state title banners, the last coming in 1998. The win on Feb. 21 provided Malone with the potential rst step toward title No. 14. Walker was Malones focal point on defense throughout the game, as the 6-foot-10 junior found himself the constant recipient of double teams. Walker scored three points in the rst half, but unlike in some games the Blue Devils found someone to pick up the scoring slack. Jordan McAllister scored 22 of Holmes Countys 28 rst-half points and he made four of his teams ve 3-pointers to give the Blue Devils a 13-point lead. Malone was the victim of poor shooting in the rst half. Much of that could be attributed to staunch Holmes County defense that forced bad shots and kept Malone from running the oor. That wasnt the case in the third quarter, when Malone scored 19 points, four more than it did in the rst half, to pull within 37-34 on a traditional 3-point play by Ladarius McElroy at the end of 24 minutes. Antwain Johnsons score early in the fourth put Malone ahead 38-37 for its rst lead since the initial basket of the game. Holmes County held two nal leads on Walker scores, the last 48-46 with 1:11 to play. Chai Baker scored his lone point on one of three free throws to narrow the gap to 48-47 with 29 seconds on the clock. A Holmes County turnover gave Malone the ball nine seconds later. The Tigers worked the ball to Murff, who scored from the corner for the win and McAllister dribbled out of bounds to prevent a nal heave at the buzzer. Sometimes its hard to handle adversity and if we would have kept our composure things may have been different, Holmes County coach Po White said.

McIntyre leads Chipley past Malone By Brad Milner Florida Freedom Newspapers MALONE The Malone basketball faithful have a motto: Join The Movement. Chipleys Ryan McIntyre helped put the movement to a halt on Saturday. The senior scored a team-high 23 points, and key 3-pointers down the stretch propelled Chipley to a 73-63 win in the Region 1-1A championship. Chipley moved on to Tuesdays state semi nal against West Gadsden in Lakeland. Malone nished 25-4. McIntyre made seven 3pointers, ve in the second half. His second of the third quarter helped erase an eight-point de cit. His last 3 of the game broke a 56-56 tie and started a 13-2 run to take over the contest. I knew I could get hot if I hit it, Ive been in a slump the last few games, McIntyre said. Then I started hitting them and were going to state. Another standing roomonly crowd witnessed two of the states top teams battling for a Final Four berth. Spectators were cramming in only minutes from the opening tip. The over ow crowd watched the game from the comfort of the auditorium, as it was broadcast by the schools multimedia department. They witnessed Malone start slow for the second straight game, with Chipley (24-3) pulling ahead 15-3 late in the rst quarter. But like its last game against Holmes County, Malone heated up, forced turnovers and regained its composure. It happened quicker this game, and Malone scored 28 points in the second quarter to pull ahead 36-28 at halftime. Baker led all scorers with 28 points. Ty Baker added 14 points for Malone and both underclassmen will return next season. CHIPLEY (73) Dozier 7 0-0 16, Hamilton 6 6-8 19, Sharpe 1 0-0 2, McCrary 6 1-3 13, McIntyre 8 0-2 23.

The race was scheduled to run at 2 p.m. Sunday and was called off and rescheduled to run on at 11 a.m. Monday but as it would happen, it was called off and scheduled to run at 7 p.m. Monday. When the race nally got under way they started off on a good note through the rst lap. The second lap started the streak of bad luck for the drivers with a pretty big wreck involving Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick and and several others. Patrick came back into the race 63 laps down. Johnson was out of the race after only racing a lap and a half. Then all heck broke loose close to the end of the race Juan Montoya went into the pits and came back out on a caution when the unthinkable happened, the suspension on his car gave way putting him into the wall in turn 3. As he came off of the wall he slid down the track and into a track drier truck carrying a few hundred gallons of jet fuel used to dry the track or to blow the debris off of the track after an accident. Montoya says he knew that the drier was there, as he was going into turn 3 he was going to pass the drier, when his suspension snapped. The miracle was that neither Montoya nor the two in the truck were seriously injured. Montoya suffered a bruised ankle when his foot slipped off the brake and hit the clutch. The driver of the drier was taken to a nearby medical center in Daytona and then released with no injuries. With all that said and done, Matt Kenseth held off Dale Earnhardt Jr., to win the Daytona 500. The top 10 drivers were: 1 Matt Kenseth 2 Dale Earhardt Jr. 3 Greg Bif e 4 Denny Hamlin 5 Jeff Burton 6 Paul Menard 7 Kevin Harvick 8 Joey Logano 9 Carl Edwards 10 Mark Martin The defending Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart started his season with nishing 16th and 18 points behind the leader.

Special to Times-Advertiser BONIFAY In 2007 the Holmes County Health Department opened a dental clinic to improve access to dental health care for Holmes County residents with an emphasis on improving the dental health of children in Holmes County. The Childrens Dental Health Clinic provides dental care for children with Medicaid. In the 2009-2010 scal year, statistics show that 3229 of 5115 children aged 20 and younger in Holmes County were covered for healthcare by Medicaid. This is 63.1 percent of the countys children. Dental care is included and by having a local provider, county residents have been able avoid driving long distance for most routine care. Each February, the American Dental Association sponsors National Childrens Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. NCDHM messages and materials have reached millions of people in communities across the country. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. This month across the nation, dental professionals have visited schools and other locations educating children and their parents about the lifetime bene ts of good oral heath. The bene ts of good dental health are often not realized because of a poor start. Preventing dental problems from developing in young children can lead to less pain and missed school, healthier permanent teeth and greatly reduced costs for dental health over a lifetime. Parents often believe that visiting a dentist regularly at an early age is unimportant since the baby teeth will fall out eventually anyway. However, research has shown preventing tooth decay in deciduous (baby) teeth is possible and predictable and results in less decay in the permanent teeth when they erupt. The best time to begin seeing a dentist is when the child is about 1 year old so healthy habits can be taught at an early age and a dental home is established so a child will not fear dental care as they grow older. Dental care can be provided by a general or family dentist or by a pedodontist, a dental specialist with additional training and certi cation who treats only children through adolescence including those with special needs. In an effort to reduce costs the Florida legislature enacted changes to Medicaid to provide managed care for dental services. Two companies were selected to provide Prepaid Dental Health Plans for children with Medicaid. Patients will be soon given the opportunity to select the company MCNA or DentaQuest from which they wish to receive coverage. The plan will begin in May 2012. The list of providers for each company is not complete at this time but all county health departments with dental clinics will accept DentaQuest patients including Holmes County Health Department Childrens Dental Clinic.

BONIFA Y PAGEANT MEETING By John Christoffersen The Associated Press LED Y ARD C onn. When the rst of two massive ca sinos opened in a remote corner of Connecticut two decades ago, some ofcials and residents feared the gambling centers would lead to organized crime, prostitution, drunken driv ing and other crime. But the crime rate since Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun opened has fallen in the nearby municipalities compared to the years before the ca sinos opened mirroring a drop in crime nationwide. Crime did not decline in some towns near the casi nos as much as it fell state wide, but local ofcials ac knowledge the worst fears never materialized. Id say those fears have not come to pass, said Montville Mayor Ron McDaniel. The crimes studied in clude murder, rape, rob bery, assault, burglary and thefts. Mohegan Sun opened in 1996; Foxwoods in 1992. Montville has averaged 13 crimes per 1,000 resi dents annually since 1996, when both casinos were open, through 2009 down 35 percent from the 19 crimes per 1,000 residents logged in the seven years before either casino was opened, 1985-1991. Montvilles post-casino decline is slightly less than the statewide average de cline of 36 percent, com pared to the seven years before the casinos arrived. Ledyard experienced a 25 percent decline com pared to the period before the casinos. Crime fell 19 percent in the nearby city of Nor wich, 33 percent in Preston and 24 percent in North Stonington. Then-Gov. Lowell Weicker warned in 1991 that Foxwoods would lead to organized crime, prosti tution, drunken driving and other crime. But records show pros titution arrests are rare in the casinos and host towns and there is little evidence of mob activity. We havent experi enced that type of criminal behavior, said Lt. J. Paul Vance, a spokesman for Connecticut State Police, which has policed the ca sinos since they opened. Organized crime, he said, really has not crossed our radar. As for Weickers prosti tution prediction, Mohegan Sun had no prostitution arrests inside the casino from 2003 to 2008, the last year for which statistics were available. Foxwoods had two arrests. Montville and Ledyard, the towns that host the casinos, had none. Drunken driving ar rests are down in Norwich, an average of 208 from 1985 until 1991, the year before Foxwoods opened. From 1992 through 2009, Norwich averaged 163 drunken driv ing arrests. Disorderly conduct ar rests are also down in Nor wich, from an annual aver age of 767 in the pre-casino years to 354 arrests annu ally since the casinos. The two casinos attract tens of thousands of visitors daily and rank among the biggest in North America with about 18,000 employ ees combined. Mohegan Sun posted $719 million in slot-machine revenue in the last scal year, com pared with $650 million for Foxwoods. Thefts did rise substan tially after Foxwoods Re sort Casino opened. Larce nies account for most of the crimes that occur in both casinos. Around Connecticut, embezzlements have more than tripled, a trend some blame on gambling debts. The state has averaged 158 embezzlements annually since the casinos opened, more than triple the aver age of 49 before casinos. Crime has fallen dra matically nationwide, starting around 1992, but experts have yet to show why, said David Kennedy, who directs the Center on Crime Prevention and Control at John Jay Col lege in New York.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com As I was traveling through south Georgia this week, as all of us do when we travel, I saw the same things that have been on the side of the road every time Ive traveled. But then I saw something different, even though it wasnt different. As the old saying goes, we often miss the trees for the forest. or something like that. Well there they were, those large pecan orchards, which Ive seen many times. This time as it should be in the winter, there were no leaves on the trees. They were completely barren, or naked as some might call it, because the frame of the trees were totally exposed. As I looked out across the orchard it was very evident that the farmers have been precise in their planting. Every tree had the same distance on each side of it from the other trees and all of them looked as if they were the same size. Actually, as I looked across the massive eld I sort of got bored as it seemed that all the trees were identical for miles and miles. Then something happened, I began to let my vision focus in on a smaller cluster of trees. That is when I began to see each tree for what it was, though at a distance and a quick glance they all looked just alike. As I focused on one tree and then another I noticed just the opposite of my rst conclusion, in that I now noticed that each tree was very different from the one standing next to it and even all those around were very different. Then as I broadened my view to where I once was, I noticed that they were not all alike but each one very different from all the others in the grove. Some had missing branches some were missing because they had been pruned by the farmer, others because a storm had taken its toll on the tree, and drought and weather conditions had formed the direction in which their branches turned. As I traveled and passed by more and more of these great orchards I began to see an awesome picture of what it is to stand together as we grow. That as these trees stand together in the groves they are a picture of strength, of uniformity. But as I looked at each tree individually, I saw the scars of the storms and the pruning of the farmer which made each tree a magni cent symbol of strength and character which would make it a great bearer of fruit in the coming Spring. These trees reminded me how important it is that we as disciples of Christ, created in the image of God, may have individual scars and character in our life because of where were from and the community in which we grew up or the school we attended. Yes, individually we are an awesome picture of the creative wisdom of God our creator, but when we stand together in the strength and the power of His might and love, there is not a greater picture in this world of the immeasurable, indescribable power, love and wisdom of God that cannot be mistaken for anything else. That is why God gave us the wonderful analogy of the body of Christ in 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 which says For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body ... whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free ... and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For in fact the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. ... And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually ( NKJV ). It is time the body of Christ (His Church) unite and be a great light to a dark and dying world, and become salt in this world that others will thirst for Christ (Matthew 5:13-16). Because we have in our possession the only source of absolute Truth, The Holy Bible. Tim Hall is senior pastor of Gully Springs Baptist Church and author of Church Go To Hell! Please?

This Message Courtesy of Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us. 1 John 4: 11-12 The Word Is Love I saw a bumper sticker recently which said The school is life. The lesson is love. Life is indeed a school, and it doesnt have to be the school of hard knocks, as some would have it. Far better that life be a school where loving kindness and compassion are the constant les son. Again and again throughout the Bible the centrality of love is preached. Consider 1 John 4:8, where we are told that Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. The Bible is an epic saga of Gods love for humanity (and the rest of creation) despite mans tendency to turn away from God and not appreciate the wondrous bounty of Gods love. Perhaps we should consider how we might live a life devoted to love, and how our thoughts, love always and unconditionally. Wednesday, February 29, 2012 Page 4 By Rev. James L. Snyder Whenever somebody mentions the word free in my presence my right eye turns a vivid jaundice. It is not that I have anything against the word free; just the person who is trying to use it to gain some kind of an advantage over me. I know anybody employing this mono-verbiage, is hiding some very long strings. My father taught me a long time ago that there are no free lunches. Occasionally somebody will advertise a free lunch and I go and nd out the lunch is free but they are going to charge you to get out of that restaurant. In the end, it would have been cheaper to buy my own lunch. My philosophy is simply this; if I cannot afford it, I do not want it. In my vast experience down through the years, I have discovered that I cannot afford free. And I think I know why, my understanding of the word free and the person employing that word is not the same. When I use the word free, I am insinuating that there is absolutely no cost associated with this product whatsoever. When others use the word free, they often are insinuating that I am just a free market for them to take advantage of in the neighborhood of my money. Unfortunately, I do not live in that neighborhood anymore. I especially do not accept any free offers via the telephone. If someone has something to give me for nothing, let him come to my door, hand it to me, shake my hand and get out of Dodge. To me, thats what free is all about. Just the other day I received one of those telephone calls. I must confess that I was in a rather curmudgeon attitude and was just looking around for someone on which to spit my scorn. Then the telephone rang. When I answered the phone, it turned out to be someone offering me, absolutely free, with no cost to me absolutely, a free crime prevention program for my blessed domicile. No thank you, sir, I said as politely as I could. Im not really interested. I assure you I have no Ph.D or D.D. attached to my name whatsoever and yet as simple as I am, I understood what the phrase Im not really interested was all about. Not so my affable telephone caller. But I assure you, sir, that this program is absolutely free to you. Its our way to say thank you to some of our customers. He rattled on as though we were having only a oneway conversation. If this is going to be a one-way conversation, who will take up the offering? I think I know. After ve long minutes of him telling me how important it was for me to have security in my home and how his product was absolutely free to me, I nally got a word in edgewise. But I have my own security system, thank you. There is a slight pause and then he said, What is your home security system, if I may ask? All right. I will confess right now that I had a wee bit of naughtiness on my mind, but in my own defense the telephone caller opened the door. I always believe where there is an open door somebody ought to step in. My home security system is called, Napoleontwo-Claws, and furthermore Im quite satis ed with it. There was another pause on the other end of the phone and I heard someone clear their throat and then ask, Ive never heard of that program. What is Napoleon-two-Claws? You know what it is like when you are trying not to laugh and it is about all you can do not to laugh? For a brief moment, I felt a little bit guilty but then I remembered who was on the other end of the phone. Somebody that was trying to con me with some kind of free thingamajig. The Napoleon-twoClaws home security program that I have in my house is my cat. I call him Napoleon because he walks around with his right paw stuck in his coat between two buttons. There was an extended pause on the other end of the phone and nally he said, What would you do, sir, if someone broke into your house? Id send owers to the funeral. The funeral? Whos funeral? Why, the funeral of the guy who tried to break into my house while Napoleontwo-Claws was on duty. The rst moment an intruder would enter into my home, good old Napoleon would claw that sorry person to death. Then feeling good about my momentum at this point I continued, I live there and I have a hard time getting in my house without being clawed to death by Napoleon. And I feed the cat. My cat is the meanest, grumpiest, most cantankerous animal on Gods green earth. If anybody, and I mean anybody, can get past Napoleon they can have anything in my house. Absolutely free. At that moment, I heard a distinctive click and I realized our conversation was over. I guess whatever he had that was free did not measure up to good old Napoleon-two-Claws. The only one I trust to give me something is God. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). What Jesus gives is absolutely free. The Rev.

Washington, Holmes team upBy Randal SeylerManaging Editor rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Washington County Tourism Development Council voted last week to spend $5,000 in support of a rural tourism project, and Holmes County of cials are ready to do the same. The RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project is a multi-county consortium to bring tourism into the rural counties of Florida, said Jim Brook, director of the Holmes County Economic Development Commission and a board member of the RiverWay South project. The Holmes County Development Commission and the Holmes County Tourism Development Council will each provide $2,500 for the riverway project, part of a matching grant program to raise funds for the tourism effort. According to the RiverWay South website, the project is a public/private partnership that encourages sustainable economic development through the preservation and promotion of the natural, cultural and historical resources of the Apalachicola and Choctawhatchee River basins. Much of rural tourism is what I would call ecotourism, Brook said on Monday. Ecotourism has a lot to offer Holmes and Washington counties by the way of protecting our rivers and streams. The project also includes Jackson County and was based on a similar Counties to aid RiverWay South project WEB WATCHVisit www.RWSFL.org for more information. Investigators identify victims in fatal wreckBy Angel McCurdyFlorida Freedom Newspapers DeFUNIAK SPRINGS Of cials have identi ed the two people killed in Thursdays early morning accident. Andrea Hoffman, 20, of Holmes County, was driving a 1996 Chevrolet southbound on U.S. Highway 331 when she collided with an 18-wheeler, according to Lt. Tillman Mears, public information of cer with DeFuniak Springs Police. Hoffman, who investigators said also goes by Kristine McQueen, was killed along with her backseat passenger, 44-year-old Billy Wayne Donaldson of Holmes County. The front passenger, Rebecca Lynn Campbell Sapp, was identi ed by Tuesday by DeFuniak Springs Police. She was severely injured and transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola. According to police, Sapp is listed as being in serious condition. Were waiting on a ngerprint analysis, Mears said. We may also have her sister coming to identify her. Investigators believe the Chevrolet was traveling at a high rate of speed around 5:30 a.m. on U.S. Highway 331 near the intersection of Interstate 10 ran into an 18-wheeler crossing U.S. Highway 331 onto the west bound on-ramp. The car went completely under the trailer, said Capt. Mike Lolley with the DeFuniak Springs Police Department. Our initial reports indicate that alcohol was not a factor. Its a possibility that the car may have been transporting someone to a hospital, but we dont know for sure. CECILIA SPEARS | The NewsAttorneys Glenn Hess, left, Kimberly Dowgul and Kevin Carlisle, second from right, confer Monday during the Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun murder trial. The defense began and ended its case Monday and closing arguments were set to begin Tuesday. By Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Johnny Mack Sketo Calhouns defense began and ended Monday morning. Calhoun is on trial for the December 2010 rst-degree murder of Mia Brown. Brown, 24, of Bonifay, went missing Dec. 16, 2010, when she was last seen leaving the Esto store where she worked. Her burned car was discovered in rural Geneva County, Ala., four days later, and Browns body was found in the trunk. Closing statements were expected to begin Tuesday, followed by instructions to the jurors. Calhoun did not testify in his own defense Monday, but John Sketo, Calhouns father, was one of the primary defense witnesses. Calhouns attorney, Kimberly Dowgul, had Sketo con rm Terry Ellenburg and he are owners of Precious Metals and that his son lived within the con nes of the Precious Metals grounds in a trailer. Sketo testi ed he arrived at work at 7:30 a.m. the morning Father testi es on evidenceBonifay elections scheduled for MarchBy Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Elections for Bonifay City Council were approved of in the form of a resolution at the Bonifay City Councils regularly scheduled meeting on Monday. The election will be held Tuesday, March 27, with polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Seats that are open for election include mayor, a position currently held by Mayor Eddie Sims; Seat 2, currently held by Lawrence Cloud; and Seat 4, currently held by Micah McCormick.

for loans, the lowest being BB&T (Branch Bank & Trust in Jacksonville) with an interest rate of 1.1 percent, the next to the lowest being SunTrust at 1.25 percent, then First Federal at 2.2 percent and then Capital City Bank at 2.39 percent. Id much rather go with the bank weve known and had business with for as long as Ive been mayor, Sims said. I know the names changed from Bank of Bonifay to First Federal, but its still the same dependable service weve always had and I feel strongly that we should stick with them. Cloud agreed with Sims. Wed rather have to spend a little more at home then have to go somewhere else with our money, Cloud said. Council member Roger Brooks agreed with both Sims and Cloud. I say we go with First Federal because its a bank we know and weve got a line of credit with them, Brooks said. Council approved of the rst reading of Ordinance 382, which allows the city to pursue the possibility of an ad valorem tax. This is just showing we have an intent of pursuing an ad valorem tax, Sims said. This would still take several months of advertising, public hearings and reading of the ordinances; I still dont agree with pursuing this tax to impose on our residents. The vote passed with a vote of 3-2, with Brooks and Sims voting no. Council also approved of the nal reading and adoption of Ordinance 381 accepting Waste Pro as their waste disposal service. Cloud said he recently participated in a meeting with the emergency management agencies and the Holmes County Health Department, and there was discussion of an emergency alert system that can be used via the telephone system, sending out alerts about bad weather, boil water notices, power outages, derailed trains, etc. The problem is that the current system were working with is based on land lines, and theres so many that have went to using cell phones only, and were looking at only about 5 percent who might be willing to add their cell phone to the data base for these emergency alerts, Cloud said. Weve got to nd a way to increase public awareness of this service and try to increase the publics participation. Cloud said for the entire county to have this service it would cost $4,600 annually, but that the Holmes County Health Department is willing to pay for $1,900, leaving $2,700 for the county to come up with to have this service for a year. I think if all of Holmes County were to chip in we could have this service and increase our ability to save more lives with up-to-theminute emergency noti cations, Cloud said. Bonifay Police Chief Chris Wells suggested using the Bonifay Down Home Street Festival to boost awareness of the Holmes County Alert System and see how much participation they could try to get from residents. I think if we could get enough participation we should look into this, Brooks said. This could help our emergency management agencies quite a bit. Sims also announced that he has requested that Wells order rain jackets for the of cers. Itll reduce liability for those members of law enforcement that have to face the elements on a regular basis, Sims said.

BRIEFS from page A1 program in Alabama, designed to bring visitors to the rural areas of the state to enjoy Floridas natural beauty and wildlife. Agritourism is also part of the draw for rural areas, Brook said, with visitors coming to visit farms from the cities to experience what agriculture is like rsthand. I would also consider farmers markets to be part of agritourism, he added. Agritourism has not been as successful as ecotourism in bringing in visitors, Brook said. Situated between the emerald green waters and white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the upland forest bluffs of Floridas highest vistas, RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee is the center of Northwest Floridas rich cultural, historical, maritime and nature-based region, a brochure for the program reads. Holmes Creek is one of the most pristine bodies of water in the state, Brook said, citing the creek as just one example of what makes this region a prime location for ecotourism. I have been told that 55 streams feed into that creek. It is a local and state treasure. Holmes Creek provides one of the most diverse habitats and richest variety of sh and mollusks in the Choctawhatchee River basin, according to the Northwest Florida Water Management Districts website. And according to the website, dozens of springs do indeed feed into Holmes Creek, including Burn-out Spring, Cypress Spring and Becton Spring. Its lower reach swells with azure springs, increasing average ow and providing distinctive stream havens for sh, reptiles and mollusks, the website states. A major summer congregation area for the federally protected Gulf sturgeon is just below the Holmes Creek con uence with the Choctawhatchee River. Holmes Creek is also richer in freshwater snail species than any other river in the Florida Panhandle, according to the website. Three as yet unnamed species of snails were found in the creek, Choctawhatchee and Chipola river drainages. Holmes Creek is a state-designated canoe trail and may be accessed by several public boat landings. Holmes County is going to step up, because it is the right thing to do, Brook said. We want to get people off the beach, up from Panama City or down from Dothan for a day, so they can see the natural, historic and cultural resources we have in Holmes and Washington counties. RIVERWAY from page A1After colliding with the trailer the car went underneath the trailer and continued into the south shoulder. The car went under the trailer and it didnt stop, Assistant Chief Charles Burney with DeFuniak Springs Fire said. Obviously, it was a bad wreck. The driver of the tractor trailer was not seriously injured and declined medical treatment. DJ Fleischfresser, a server at Waf e House on U.S. Highway 331, said she was waiting on a table when she heard tires screeching and a loud crash. It didnt take long before there were cops and re trucks ying up there, Fleischfresser said a few hours after the wreck. Ive never seen anything like this before. We knew it was really bad when we saw the whole mess of people coming with their lights on. The westbound on-ramp to Interstate 10 was closed for about an hour but has since been reopened. The outside southbound lane of U.S. Highway 331 remained closed as of 8:30 a.m. as DeFuniak Springs police investigated the crash. Prashant Patel, general manager of Regency Suites on U.S. Highway 331, said traf c crashes are not uncommon for the intersection but in his eight years of working at the hotel he had never seen one as bad as Thursday mornings. Ive seen wrecks there but not like that, he said motioning to the crowd of rst responders gathered at the crash site. Hardly anything happens here, but today wow. When it happened it sounded like a bombing. Of cials with the DeFuniak Springs Police Department are investigating the crash. VICTIMS from page A1 after Browns disappearance, and the rst thing he noticed was a forklift missing. He said he then noticed Calhouns trailer was open and that the driver-side door of a truck was open, with items tossed out of the truck. Sketo testi ed he told Ellenburg to call the police because it appeared a piece of equipment, a Bobcat, was stolen, and the trailer door had been found open. Shortly afterward, Sketo said, they found the Bobcat was next to their dock, and it looked as though something had been pushed off the dock. He said he checked his merchandise and found nothing stolen, then proceeded to check his sons trailer, which appeared to be in a mess. He noticed his sons grill was on his bed and that no one was there. Sketo said he didnt nd his son in the trailer and left the trailer door open upon leaving. Brittney Mixon showed up around 8:15 a.m. in her fathers truck, asking about Calhoun, Sketo testi ed. He said Mixon went into the trailer even though he told her she shouldnt go into it. Sketo said she was in the trailer for a little over a minute and when she went in she had nothing in her hands; when she left, she had nothing in her hands. Sketo said she then went and picked up a puppy, put it into her fathers truck and left without a word. He then testi ed that someone showed up right afterward, saying law enforcement was looking for his son. Shortly afterward, a sheriffs deputy showed up and Sketo explained that someone hotwired his Bobcat and sat it on the dock and that the trailer was open. Sketo testi ed that he and the deputy went to the trailer, where the deputy asked to look in and then inquired about whether anything was missing. Sketo said there didnt appear to be anything missing. Sketo said when he and the deputy went into the trailer, they found his sons gun on the couch. The gun wasnt there before Mixon went in, Sketo testi ed. Sketo con rmed he checked to see if the gun had been red recently it hadnt and that he emptied it of the shells, which showed it was fully loaded. The deputy went to look at the Bobcat and said it was covered in dew and that they would have to wait to get ngerprints, Sketo testi ed. He said he then noticed two sets of tracks; there had been only one truck of which he was aware. He said it appeared, from the tracks, to be a one-ton, duel-wheeled rollback truck. Sketo insisted the tracks hadnt been there the day before. Those tracks went from the dock to the side of the junkyard. On cross-examination, Hess asked Sketo about nding the grill on the bed and the messy room. Sketo also con rmed that he didnt see Mixon take anything into the trailer, didnt leave with anything and was only in the trailer for a short while. Sketo also con rmed the truck in front of trailer was a scrap truck and had not been functional for a while. MURDER from page A1

The recent acquisition also expands Sunshine into a more diverse transportation company in the Panhandle, offering sedans, limousines, vans, local shuttle vehicles, and now, luxury motor coaches. The new arm of Finchs transportation business is Sunshine Coach. During peak season, the company will employ about 40 workers. Sunshine began in 2002 by John Finch, the owner of Sunshine Shuttle and Sunshine Limousine, as a secondary business interest. When Finchs development investments dissolved, he concentrated his entrepreneurial efforts on the transportation company. The company has seen doubledigit growth three years in a row, and Finch says he expects even greater things with his latest expansion. Finch plans to capitalize on the success of the 21year-old Trumpet Coach and says there are 26 charters already on the books. Trumpets last full year showed annual sales of $5 million. Calls to Trumpet now come into our central ofce where we use state of the art reservation and dispatch software and equipment. We have people available 24/7. Its a tough business, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Its seasonal to some degree but our bills come due every month. Adding the coach business to our already-established line of professional transportation options will allow us to provide year round travel to areas out-of-state as well provide service to our large local customers more efciently, Finch said. Sunshine works closely with many high-end resorts along the northwest Florida coastline to provide transportation to the three major Panhandle airports. Sunshine also provides ground transportation at the Wyndham Baypoint Resort, the Edge Water Resort the Majestic to name a few, and is the designated transportation provider for Southwest Airlines personnel at the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. It also has been the ofcial transportation courier for events such as the state Seafood Festival and the Panama City Beach Seabreeze Jazz Festival. Finch credits his tough performance standards for the companys continued success. I demand the best from my employees so they can provide the best service to our customers. We want to bring the limousine service to the shuttle and motor coach business. In November 2011, for the third consecutive year, Sunshine Shuttle & Limousine was awarded the 2011 Best of Panama City Beach Award by the U.S. Commerce Association. John was recently selected to hold a board position for the Limousine Association for the State of Florida.

LocalWednesday, February 29, 2012Tummy AchesA tummy ache is never fun for people, but it can be life threatening for your pet. Its not uncommon for most animals to have upset stomachs and vomit from time to time, but theres usually a simple reason, says Dr. Deb Zoran, associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Vomiting may be caused by a hairball in the stomach or small intestine or by other foreign material, such as plants, rocks or bones. Diet could also be a cause. If a dog or cat has had a change of diet or if it has eaten spoiled food, it can result in nausea or vomiting, adds Zoran. Just like when humans get food poisoning, the symptoms usually go away within 24 hours. The digestive tract is cleared and whatever was causing the problem is gone. However, if the animal has repeated vomiting, wont eat, or the symptoms continue for more than 24 hours, the animal needs to see a veterinarian immediately. Zoran says frequent pet vomiting can be a dif cult problem to pinpoint. The causes are numerous food allergies, infection or in ammation in the intestinal tract, foreign objects that obstruct the bowel, ulcers, liver or kidney failure, diabetes, cancer the list can go on and on, says Zoran. If the animal has been vomiting for more than 24 hours, the most serious problems are dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. The animal has lost body uids and they need to be replaced right away, then the source of the problem can be examined. X-rays can often detect the source of the vomiting, and as with humans, barium liquid can be administered to the pet to outline the digestive tract. Other tests that may be necessary include ultrasound, blood work, and an endoscopic examination to determine the problem. One key question is, does the cause of the vomiting come from inside the G.I. tract or is it hidden elsewhere in the animal? Zoran says.. If the pet owner detects blood in any food the animal has vomited, that should be a warning sign that something is not right. Unfortunately, it may not look like blood because the stomach acids will digest any blood present and the blood may look something like coffee grounds. The best answer is, if you dont think it looks like food, the animal needs medical attention as soon as possible, says Zoran. Other signs that should alarm pet owners: if the animal vomits every time it eats, vomits multiple times per day, or if the animal wont eat at all and appears to be weak and depressed. All of these are warning signs that something serious is wrong and the pet needs medical help immediately, says Zoran. Frequent or persistent vomiting in any animal is not normal. If the animal has been vomiting excessively, its essential that it sees a veterinarian. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Accompanied by teacher Mrs. Lisa Mathews, the students were given an exclusive, allday tour with guest speaker and Holocaust survivor Ben Walker. Walker, from Romania, discussed his experiences during World War II. Afterward, the group took a guided tour of part of the museum and impressed the tour guide during interactive discussions with their knowledge of the Holocaust. The curriculum specialist at the museum, Sally Levine, led a group discussion about certain artifacts that were not on display. Later, the students toured the museum at their leisure. According to Mrs. Mathews, the students were able to truly connect with what we have studied in the Holocaust class this year. The trip was a very emotional, heartfelt experience for the students and adult chaperones one we will never forget. Impressed with the students knowledge and educational preparation, the museums regional director invited Mathews to be a part of the upcoming summer seminar at the Breman Jewish Museum as a presenter. Mathews and her students had presented their trip plans to the Holmes District School Board after initially being denied the chance to go. All but one board member, Gary Scott, enthusiastically gave their vote for the educational opportunity. Students attending the trip were Josh Jordan, David Boatwright, Alex Williams, J.J.

My recently found friend, Chipley native James Vernon Lewis, now living in Bedford, Virginia, has advised by email that he has recently, in sur ng the internet, came across the May 18, 2011 Perrys Prattle. He wrote: The writing, Jukes a Joy in the 30s and 40s (with picture of Green Lantern), brought back some memories to me that I feel compelled to share. I recall the Green Lantern from 1943. We lived across the railroad from it, up a ways toward Chipley, on Ef e Bar elds sharecropper place. My step-father, Holly Matthews, put in a crop for her that year. The house was very near the railroad and I would stand on the porch and wave at the engineer as the train roared by. Now and then, an engineer would toss out a can of sour kraut and motion for me to go get it. I was nine years old. Vernon Lewis continues with his memoirs: One Saturday morning early in 1942, Holly, Mama, sister Betty and myself all walked to downtown Chipley to catch the bus to Lynn Haven about forty miles south, near Panama City. Sister, Louise, was still a baby and had to be carried in arms. I recall that it was a beautiful, brisk morning and the freshness of Spring was in the air. We were going to visit Hollys older brother, Henry, whom we children had never seen. The experience continues: On arriving in Lynn Haven, we got off the bus and went inside a juke joint, a lowclass restaurant that served beer and had a Wurlitzer juke box, where we children and mama waited while Holly went to nd where his brother lived. By that time, it was around twelve or one oclock in the afternoon and a slow, drizzling rain had set in. We waited there for most of the afternoon, during which time two new country songs were played, rst one and the other, over and over, on the juke box. They were by the newest country music star, Ernest Tubb. One side of the record was WALKING THE FLOOR OVER YOU and the ip side was BE HONEST WITH ME. In those days, it cost a nickel to play one tune on the juke box or three songs for a dime. In this communication, Lewis did not tell whether his step-father ever found his brother for a family visit, but does continue his recollection of juke joints of the area and his becoming involved in playing music with some of his Chipley friends. I know the place later became Chuck and Eddies, but, to me it has always been the Green Lantern. Several years later, after we had moved around and about, we had nally moved back to Chipley. I was walking one day down the railroad track, on past the Ef e Bar eld place, to the Green Lantern, which was about a quarter of a mile on down the tracks from the old mule watering hole. Even though the Green Lantern was a juke joint, they also had a swimming pool in back and you could swim all day for a quarter. So I would go there whenever I could get hold of a quarter. Vernon Lewis continues with this harrowing experience: On this particular day, I had got to a point at about the middle of the railroad trestle over the branch where we watered the mules at noon when farming the Ef e Bar eld place. All of a sudden I heard a train whistle and looked up to see the train coming around a curve from the direction of Bonifay. It was barreling down the track at a great speed and I saw immediately that I could not make it to either end of the trestle before the train got there. So I swung off over the side and hung by my hands from a cross tie while it roared by. If the crew had picked that moment to dump the coals from the re box, I would have been in big trouble. As it was, I escaped with nothing damaged but my dignity. Vernon Lewis continues with his own experience of playing music. I, along with Sam Shuemake (later Mayor of Chipley) and a guy named Shorty Saunders had been getting together to play music. Sam and Shorty played guitar and I played guitar and other instruments Upon deciding that the threesome might have a chance of going somewhere with the music, Lewis reports that a Mr. Brock who operated a business near Blue Lake gave them an opportunity to play with the only promise of pay being passing the hat around a couple of times for whatever the customers were willing to put in. At that time, they were hearing Eddy Arnold on the juke box with his popular country and western song TEXARKANA BABY. The musicians branched out to do a gig at an establishment near the stockyard, east of Chipley and after they had added harmonica and an improved bass ddle. This was done by running a string through the bottom of a zinc wash tub and tying it to a stick. The bass sound was obtained by plucking on the string. Voluntary contributions produced three or four dollars each on Friday and Saturday nights. Not bad spending money for school boys, concluded Vernon. His music playing continued after he secured a job with Bell Telephone clearing underbrush from beneath lines from Jacksonville to Mobile. The crew was moving through Chattahoochee, Florida and the work was done by bush hooks and machetes. By this time he had become acquainted with the songs of Jimmie Rodgers and was associated with other workmen who also played instruments. When the boss took extended lunch breaks, a fellow picker would hand over his guitar and say: Cousin Vernon, how about playing us one of them Jimmy Rodgers tunes. That was his cue to sing PEACH PICKING TIME IN GEORGIA and maybe WAITING FOR A TRAIN before throwing in an instrumental such as WILDWOOD FLOWER. Altogether, I enjoyed a rather happy summer, reports our guest contributor. See you all next week. Monday I had my rst chance to sit down and visit with Jim Brook, executive director of the Holmes County Development Commission. We started off talking about the RiverWay South Apalachicola Choctawhatchee project (there is a story about that conversation elsewhere in todays newspaper) but we also touched on the topic of the megasite which has been proposed for somewhere along the Interstate 10 corridor. As Florida Freedom Newspapers reported earlier this month, the Bay County Economic Development Alliance has partnered with three entities to bring a big project to the I-10 corridor. The Alabama Development Of ce, Enterprise Florida and the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce are partnering in a project to develop a mega-site near Interstate 10. When two states and a multitude of counties get together, good things can happen, Neal Wade, executive director of the Bay EDA, said on Feb. 16. A site on State Highway 77 and I-10 is being considered, but it is just one of many sites being considered and no particular site or even state has been chosen for the mega-site. Brook and I discussed the southeasts success in getting big automobile maker facilities to locate in this corner of the country. Arkansas, my former state of residence, was always an also-ran in the contests, especially courting Nissan a few years back for a plant that wound up being built in Canton, Miss., just north of Jackson. That plant opened in May 2003 and cost about $1.4 billion to build. It is, according to money.cnn. com, about the size of six football stadiums and is full of robotics and cutting edge technology. Brook is excited about the prospect of a megasite, and so am I. The mega-site doesnt have to be within our county borders to still do a lot of good for Washington and Holmes counties. Building something like a Nissan or Hyundai plant could also bring a string of satellite support facilities. When I wasnt being a journalist in the s, I worked in human resources for an OEM manufacturer of aluminum wheels Superior Industries so I got a bit of rsthand experience in the automotive manufacturing world. Auto manufacturing depends on a score of suppliers making the parts that are needed to put that automobile together those parts have to be made somewhere, and that means more jobs not only or existing plants, like my former employer Superior, but it also can mean new plants. One drawback to a mega-facility is there have to be the people around to work in the plant. Back to the money.CNN.com article: But even as Nissan began construction in April 2001, the company had to wrestle with the question of how it would staff the plant, which was expected to employ 5,300 people and generate thousands of other jobs for local suppliers and service providers. To get employees, Nissan sent in an ace HR squad. Also Nissan paid about double the average industrial wage in a state notorious for low-paying jobs. The recruiters received more than 100,000 phone calls, letters, resumes, and applications. They held job fairs in all 82 of the states counties and sometimes encountered lines of job seekers stretching more than half a mile. And that is my point. A mega-site landing anywhere between Tallahassee and Mobile would be like a volcano erupting. It would be hard not to be affected by such an event. Brook said one of the questions he often gets is why isnt there a Cracker Barrel in Bonifay. Theres an old saying that Brook likes to cite by way of explanation. Retail follows roofs. And roofs follow jobs. A mega-site could de nitely mean jobs for northwest Florida and southwest Alabama. It would be a regional game-changer. It wont happen overnight, but it is possible, and with the proactive leadership found in northwest Florida, I think if anyone could make it happen it would be our local Chamber and economic development of cials. Ive been nothing but impressed with the leaders Ive met in Holmes and Washington counties so far. And who knows? If the mega-site comes to pass, we might even warrant a Cracker Barrel or two some day.PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells James Vernon Lewis comments on Jukes a Joy The Legendary Jimmie Rodgers, the singing brakeman, died May 26, 1933, soon after completing this record, now in my collection, which includes Waiting For A Train.

Hes joined on this trip by his friend Jerry Taylor, left, and Karen Jo Taylor. At right, its Florida, so amingos are never out of place. Below, RVs just outside the track dont have a view of the racing, but they are close enough to the edge of the track to hear it.Daytona a haven for RV loversBy Mike CazalasFlorida Freedom Newspapers The great outdoors might not be for everyone, but when the great outdoors is that area outside the Great American Race at Daytona International Speedway youll nd some of the most avid RV enthusiasts in the country. Its not camping, Paul Larrabee, 60, said as he sat on an orange cushion on a black collapsible chair bearing the No. 3 of Dale Earnhardt which sat on a trailer along with a matching wicker loveseat, wicker chair and a table outside his RV. Its a lifestyle. The trailer is to haul Larabees American Iron Horse Texas Chopper. He left the Harley-Davidson at home. Traveling to Daytona has been part of Larrabees lifestyle for almost 30 years, and for the past 20 years that has included traveling in an RV and renting a space on the grounds outside the track. A spot can be had for $575, and its a popular choice Larrabee knows many of his neighbors since they all end up in the same spot twice a year when NASCAR comes to Daytona. Once you get a spot, you have rst rights to rent it for the next race, and people dont give that up too easily. Because once a spot is claimed, the owner is freed from the hassles facing tens of thousands of fans trying to get to and from the track each day during race weeks. Entering the grounds of Daytona the RVs spread out before your eyes like misplaced train cars that were once in a perfect alignment but were slightly shaken and left slightly askew. Theres symmetry to it, an alignment that comes off as orderly to the passerby but which would drive an engineer crazy. Some RVs, such as Larrabees, though still perfectly serviceable, might have seen better days he paid $65,000 for it a couple of decades ago. It doesnt stand out as being faulty or in ill-repair; its just across the street from a Fleetwood that cost about $150,000. And they go up from there, he said. Only a few RVs away, Melody Hoffman of Greencove Springs sat with her parents on collapsible chairs with only a large checkeredag-designed rug separating them from her Coachmen Sport Coach, which set her back about $130,000 when she bought it eight years ago. Is it worth it? Absolutely it was, Hoffmann, 58, said. Its just so great meeting all these different people. We people watch, and everyone stops by to say hello, its just so friendly. Hoffmann wasnt a race fan nine years ago. I had never been to a race in my life, and I was invited to come here eight years ago, she said. That was in February and we bought the RV in March, and weve been here ever since. Hoffmann even offered a tour of the RV while explaining the bene ts and comforts of traveling that way, whether its to a race or any location. There was plenty of room, the air conditioning was a relief and an array of fruits, waters and wine lined the counter. When you just go by car, you park wherever youre going and you dont get the full experience, she said. We get to sit here, watch and talk, and theres just something exciting about it when the cars are roaring around out there whether its a practice or a truck race or whatever. Those who have been around longer, such as Larrabee, describe the RV area outside the track as its own community, even carrying different standards than the RV city that goes for a much higher price in the in eld. No one locks there doors out here, we watch out for each other, Larrabee said. The camaraderie in our section is real, its almost always the same people. In the in eld, he said, it can turn into a party that doesnt end until the wee hours of the morning. That doesnt mean its sedate outside the track, a point driven home by his consumption of large quantities of energy drink Friday morning. It was a rough night, he said. We gured wed just blow it out and get it over with, but we start rolling the carpet up about 11 p.m. In there, he continued, his head leaning toward the in eld, they keep going until 3 or 4 in the morning. They can have it. Florida Freedom Paul Larrabee of Jacksonville, right, has been bringing his RV to the track for a couple Paul Larrabee of Jacksonville, right, has been bringing his RV to the track for a couple symmetry to it, an alignment was plenty of room, the air LIFESTYLEITS NOT CAMPING; ITS AThe old deer saying is face into the wind because deer always will have their noses to the wind. That looks good on paper, but it doesnt always work. Last year, I killed a very nice buck that Phil down at Kritter Kreations mounted. I made the comment at the time I was satis ed with this mount and I didnt really care if I ever killed another one. I dont have enough room in my living room for a bunch of dead animals, bucks or otherwise. My son went to Texas and brought back a big one that takes up half the living space, and mine sort of lls out the rest. When I said I didnt really care if I killed another one, someone must have been listening because it looks as if I never will. But I really dont think I was telling the truth. I took off a week the past few days to see if a deer in rut would wander under my climber. I didnt mean for it to literally walk under it, sort of walk off to the side and give me enough time to get ready. I was sort of facing the wind, but not exactly looking into it. The woods to my left were clear and in the spot I was I never had seen a deer come from that direction. I was sort of surprised when I heard something walking with the wind behind me. My peripheral vision should have picked up this animal before it got too close but I was wearing a light piece of cloth to keep mosquitoes out of my face and it blocked the animal from view. By the time I saw him, he was right under me. It was one of the prettiest 10-points I have seen alive. The deer walked directly under my stand and in the process looked directly up at me. I know there are plenty of you deer hunters out there who would say I should have killed that deer. Im here to tell you, I dont think so. If I had blinked an eye, he would have been off in a shot. I noticed his hackles rising on his back, and I knew the jig was up. In a second, he blew out of there like the space shuttle. He ran a zigzag course between pine trees, which made it more than dif cult to get a shot. I hollered at him, but he ran more than 100 yards before he stopped. I popped off a shot and didnt cut a hair. I searched for blood and all the things you look for in that situation. All in all, I would do it over again just to be able to look in that animals eyes and stare at those gorgeous antlers. They were chocolate in color, and it looked as though he had been ghting because the outer edges were white. Like the kid who killed the pig, the memory will remain with me forever.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netPage A8

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 SP O RTS www.bonifaynow.com APage 9Section By Pat McCannFlorida Freedom Newspapers LAKELAND Jazz Flock scored four of her gamehigh 17 points in the nal 30 seconds as Ponce de Leon held off Holmes County 52-42 on Feb. 21 in a Class 1A semi nal of the girls basketball tournament at The Lakeland Center. Flock had 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Pirates, 27-2, survived their county rival to advance to Wednesdays championship game against Newberry, which eliminated Hilliard 49-45 earlier Tuesday. The nal will begin 9 a.m. CST. Holmes County nished 14-13, three of the losses to Ponce de Leon located just 18 miles away from Bonifay. The Pirates led throughout the rst half, but missed a golden opportunity to take control by halftime when they made just eight of 20 free-throw attempts and shot 20 percent from the eld. Still they led 16-11 after a lackluster opening two quarters, Flock already with eight points and six rebounds. Each team found its offensive touch in the second half. Ponce de Leon led 30-23 after three quarters, but Holmes County responded to inch ahead 32-31. Ashley Harper and JoJo Carlson hit consecutive 3-pointers and Harper scored again as PDL regained control. Two free throws by Flock opened a 44-32 cushion, but Mikayla Moore, who scored all 13 of her points in the second half led Holmes County back within seven. A basket by Harper, who survived a miserable rst half offensively to post 12 points and 10 rebounds made it 48-39 for the Pirates with 1:37 remaining. Cierra Davis made a 3-pointer to cut the de cit to 48-42 for the Blue Devils, but that was as close as they would get as Flock nished off the scoring. One of the keys for the Pirates, who advanced to their rst state championship game since winning the Class 2A title in 2000 was making 13 of 16 free-throw attempts in the second half. They were 21-36 for the game, Holmes County just 4-10 at the line. Hannah Howell returned from a lengthy injury rehabilitation to score 11 points for the Blue Devils despite fouling out with 3:15 left in the fourth quarter. Freshman Justice Taylor had eight points while also playing with four fouls. Ponce de Leon coach Tim Alford pointed to free-throw shooting as one of the obvious keys. Actually it was huge, Alford said. In the rst half it was awful, but we got much better made some down the stretch. Holmes County was limited by foul trouble throughout, Jessica Belser already with four by halftime. That had an effect on the Pirates strategy when the Blue Devils cut the lead to six in the nal minute. Just try to take good shots, hopefully try to be more patient with the ball, get the ball down on the block, Alford said. We got it inside. They had gotten into some foul trouble. Alford said that the spaciousness of the venue may have had something to do with the teams combining for just 27 points in the rst half. He knows his ballclub cant afford a similar start against Newberry, which also is 27-2. Theyre athletic, weve de nitely got our work cut out for us, he said. I dont know what the secret is to playing in that arena. It took some time getting us calmed down, but (Holmes County) was uptight, too. The defeat ended a spirited postseason run for Holmes County, which nished runner-up in its district but then posted upsets against Paxton and Malone to reach the Final Four for just the second time in school history. For Coach Devon Miles it was a game of missed opportunities. Failure to box out on rebounds heightened foul trouble in the nal seconds before halftime and helped PDL to its ve-point edge. We just didnt hit enough shots, but the difference in the game was rebounding and free throws, Miles said. Hannah Howell, she only played about 2 minutes against Malone and she played really well considering she hadnt had a full practice in about 40 days. We had to press because theyre so much bigger, and I thought we did a good job of playing defense in the rst quarter and didnt capitalize on it. We missed a lot of easy shots. Miles, who is a friend of Alfords, said he wont have any problem shifting his allegiance to Ponce de Leon for Wednesdays championship game. Ill be cheering for them, he said. I dont know about the girls. They might be pulling for them to win, but I dont know if theyll be cheering. Theyre such big rivals, you know.PDL (52) Leathers 0 0-0 0, Bass 0-1 0-2 0, Harper 3-14 4-6 12, Carlson 3-6 2-4 9, Thomas 3-5 1-2 7, Carroll 1-2 4-7 6, Mayo 0-1 0-0 0, Flock 4-12, 9-13 17, Brown 0-2 1-4 1, Chapman 0-1 0-0 0, Parson 0-0 0-0 0, Alford 0-0 0-0 0.

The trouble for Malone and Holmes County on Feb. 21 was having to play each other in the opening round. Chris Murffs 3-pointer with ve seconds to play gave Malone a 50-48 victory in the Region 1-1A semi nal battle pitting two of the states top teams. Malone (253), which overcame a 15-point second-half de cit, advanced to host Chipley for the regional title on Saturday. The Rural atmosphere in Malones tightly packed gymnasium was like a scene straight out of Hoosiers. Spectators were shoulder to shoulder and their toes touched players trying to inbound on the opposite side from the team benches. The home crowd wasnt as boisterous in the rst half as it was in the second. But when a 30-15 Holmes County lead turned into a 38-37 Malone advantage early in the fourth quarter there was no denying the home court worked in the Tigers favor. The crowd was incredible and thats why you want to win district to get them at home, Malone coach Steve Welch said. We never gave up. Thats a testament to everybody. Holmes County (21-7) may have had the giant on the oor in Chris Walker, but the Tigers rafters provided the proof of which program had been to the mountain top. Malone proudly displayed its 13 state title banners, the last coming in 1998. The win on Feb. 21 provided Malone with the potential rst step toward title No. 14. Walker was Malones focal point on defense throughout the game, as the 6-foot-10 junior found himself the constant recipient of double teams. Walker scored three points in the rst half, but unlike in some games the Blue Devils found someone to pick up the scoring slack. Jordan McAllister scored 22 of Holmes Countys 28 rst-half points and he made four of his teams ve 3-pointers to give the Blue Devils a 13-point lead. Malone was the victim of poor shooting in the rst half. Much of that could be attributed to staunch Holmes County defense that forced bad shots and kept Malone from running the oor. That wasnt the case in the third quarter, when Malone scored 19 points, four more than it did in the rst half, to pull within 37-34 on a traditional 3-point play by Ladarius McElroy at the end of 24 minutes. Antwain Johnsons score early in the fourth put Malone ahead 38-37 for its rst lead since the initial basket of the game. Holmes County held two nal leads on Walker scores, the last 48-46 with 1:11 to play. Chai Baker scored his lone point on one of three free throws to narrow the gap to 48-47 with 29 seconds on the clock. A Holmes County turnover gave Malone the ball nine seconds later. The Tigers worked the ball to Murff, who scored from the corner for the win and McAllister dribbled out of bounds to prevent a nal heave at the buzzer. Sometimes its hard to handle adversity and if we would have kept our composure things may have been different, Holmes County coach Po White said. When they came back there was too much time left in the game. McAllister led the Blue Devils with 26 points. Walker warmed up in the second half and nished with 17 points. Ty Baker scored 16 to pace Malone. McElroy added 11 points and Murff eight. They were doubling Chai all night, but we knew we had other players who could score, Welch said. It was a big shot by Murff.HOLMES COUNTY (48) Russ 2 0-0 5, McAllister 9 4-6 26, Walker 4 9-11 17. Totals: 15 13-17 48.

Chipleys Ryan McIntyre helped put the movement to a halt on Saturday. The senior scored a team-high 23 points, and key 3-pointers down the stretch propelled Chipley to a 73-63 win in the Region 1-1A championship. Chipley moved on to Tuesdays state semi nal against West Gadsden in Lakeland. Malone nished 25-4. McIntyre made seven 3pointers, ve in the second half. His second of the third quarter helped erase an eight-point de cit. His last 3 of the game broke a 56-56 tie and started a 13-2 run to take over the contest. I knew I could get hot if I hit it, Ive been in a slump the last few games, McIntyre said. Then I started hitting them and were going to state. Another standing roomonly crowd witnessed two of the states top teams battling for a Final Four berth. Spectators were cramming in only minutes from the opening tip. The over ow crowd watched the game from the comfort of the auditorium, as it was broadcast by the schools multimedia department. They witnessed Malone start slow for the second straight game, with Chipley (24-3) pulling ahead 15-3 late in the rst quarter. But like its last game against Holmes County, Malone heated up, forced turnovers and regained its composure. It happened quicker this game, and Malone scored 28 points in the second quarter to pull ahead 36-28 at halftime. Baker led all scorers with 28 points. Ty Baker added 14 points for Malone and both underclassmen will return next season.CHIPLEY (73) Dozier 7 0-0 16, Hamilton 6 6-8 19, Sharpe 1 0-0 2, McCrary 6 1-3 13, McIntyre 8 0-2 23.

The race was scheduled to run at 2 p.m. Sunday and was called off and rescheduled to run on at 11 a.m. Monday but as it would happen, it was called off and scheduled to run at 7 p.m. Monday. When the race nally got under way they started off on a good note through the rst lap. The second lap started the streak of bad luck for the drivers with a pretty big wreck involving Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick and and several others. Patrick came back into the race 63 laps down. Johnson was out of the race after only racing a lap and a half. Then all heck broke loose close to the end of the race Juan Montoya went into the pits and came back out on a caution when the unthinkable happened, the suspension on his car gave way putting him into the wall in turn 3. As he came off of the wall he slid down the track and into a track drier truck carrying a few hundred gallons of jet fuel used to dry the track or to blow the debris off of the track after an accident. Montoya says he knew that the drier was there, as he was going into turn 3 he was going to pass the drier, when his suspension snapped. The miracle was that neither Montoya nor the two in the truck were seriously injured. Montoya suffered a bruised ankle when his foot slipped off the brake and hit the clutch. The driver of the drier was taken to a nearby medical center in Daytona and then released with no injuries. With all that said and done, Matt Kenseth held off Dale Earnhardt Jr., to win the Daytona 500. The top 10 drivers were: 1 Matt Kenseth 2 Dale Earhardt Jr. 3 Greg Bif e 4 Denny Hamlin 5 Jeff Burton 6 Paul Menard 7 Kevin Harvick 8 Joey Logano 9 Carl Edwards 10 Mark Martin The defending Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart started his season with nishing 16th and 18 points behind the leader.

Special to Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY In 2007 the Holmes County Health Department opened a dental clinic to improve access to dental health care for Holmes County residents with an emphasis on improving the dental health of children in Holmes County. The Childrens Dental Health Clinic provides dental care for children with Medicaid. In the 2009-2010 scal year, statistics show that 3229 of 5115 children aged 20 and younger in Holmes County were covered for healthcare by Medicaid. This is 63.1 percent of the countys children. Dental care is included and by having a local provider, county residents have been able avoid driving long distance for most routine care. Each February, the American Dental Association sponsors National Childrens Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. NCDHM messages and materials have reached millions of people in communities across the country. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. This month across the nation, dental professionals have visited schools and other locations educating children and their parents about the lifetime bene ts of good oral heath. The bene ts of good dental health are often not realized because of a poor start. Preventing dental problems from developing in young children can lead to less pain and missed school, healthier permanent teeth and greatly reduced costs for dental health over a lifetime. Parents often believe that visiting a dentist regularly at an early age is unimportant since the baby teeth will fall out eventually anyway. However, research has shown preventing tooth decay in deciduous (baby) teeth is possible and predictable and results in less decay in the permanent teeth when they erupt. The best time to begin seeing a dentist is when the child is about 1 year old so healthy habits can be taught at an early age and a dental home is established so a child will not fear dental care as they grow older. Dental care can be provided by a general or family dentist or by a pedodontist, a dental specialist with additional training and certi cation who treats only children through adolescence including those with special needs. In an effort to reduce costs the Florida legislature enacted changes to Medicaid to provide managed care for dental services. Two companies were selected to provide Prepaid Dental Health Plans for children with Medicaid. Patients will be soon given the opportunity to select the company MCNA or DentaQuest from which they wish to receive coverage. The plan will begin in May 2012. The list of providers for each company is not complete at this time but all county health departments with dental clinics will accept DentaQuest patients including Holmes County Health Department Childrens Dental Clinic.

When the rst of two massive casinos opened in a remote corner of Connecticut two decades ago, some ofcials and residents feared the gambling centers would lead to organized crime, prostitution, drunken driving and other crime. But the crime rate since Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun opened has fallen in the nearby municipalities compared to the years before the casinos opened mirroring a drop in crime nationwide. Crime did not decline in some towns near the casinos as much as it fell statewide, but local ofcials acknowledge the worst fears never materialized. Id say those fears have not come to pass, said Montville Mayor Ron McDaniel. The crimes studied include murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary and thefts. Mohegan Sun opened in 1996; Foxwoods in 1992. Montville has averaged 13 crimes per 1,000 residents annually since 1996, when both casinos were open, through 2009 down 35 percent from the 19 crimes per 1,000 residents logged in the seven years before either casino was opened, 1985-1991. Montvilles post-casino decline is slightly less than the statewide average decline of 36 percent, compared to the seven years before the casinos arrived. Ledyard experienced a 25 percent decline compared to the period before the casinos. Crime fell 19 percent in the nearby city of Norwich, 33 percent in Preston and 24 percent in North Stonington. Then-Gov. Lowell Weicker warned in 1991 that Foxwoods would lead to organized crime, prostitution, drunken driving and other crime. But records show prostitution arrests are rare in the casinos and host towns and there is little evidence of mob activity. We havent experienced that type of criminal behavior, said Lt. J. Paul Vance, a spokesman for Connecticut State Police, which has policed the casinos since they opened. Organized crime, he said, really has not crossed our radar. As for Weickers prostitution prediction, Mohegan Sun had no prostitution arrests inside the casino from 2003 to 2008, the last year for which statistics were available. Foxwoods had two arrests. Montville and Ledyard, the towns that host the casinos, had none. Drunken driving arrests are down in Norwich, an average of 208 from 1985 until 1991, the year before Foxwoods opened. From 1992 through 2009, Norwich averaged 163 drunken driving arrests. Disorderly conduct arrests are also down in Norwich, from an annual average of 767 in the pre-casino years to 354 arrests annually since the casinos. The two casinos attract tens of thousands of visitors daily and rank among the biggest in North America with about 18,000 employees combined. Mohegan Sun posted $719 million in slot-machine revenue in the last scal year, compared with $650 million for Foxwoods. Thefts did rise substantially after Foxwoods Resort Casino opened. Larcenies account for most of the crimes that occur in both casinos. Around Connecticut, embezzlements have more than tripled, a trend some blame on gambling debts. The state has averaged 158 embezzlements annually since the casinos opened, more than triple the average of 49 before casinos. Crime has fallen dramatically nationwide, starting around 1992, but experts have yet to show why, said David Kennedy, who directs the Center on Crime Prevention and Control at John Jay College in New York. He said the variables that can affect crime rates include everything, including the economy, policing, guns, drug epidemics and the quality of education. Studies have reached different conclusions on whether casinos cause more crime.Crime fell around Conn. casino Crossword PPUZZLESOLUOLUTIONION ONON PAGEPAGE B5

FAITH BSectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comAs I was traveling through south Georgia this week, as all of us do when we travel, I saw the same things that have been on the side of the road every time Ive traveled. But then I saw something different, even though it wasnt different. As the old saying goes, we often miss the trees for the forest. or something like that. Well there they were, those large pecan orchards, which Ive seen many times. This time as it should be in the winter, there were no leaves on the trees. They were completely barren, or naked as some might call it, because the frame of the trees were totally exposed. As I looked out across the orchard it was very evident that the farmers have been precise in their planting. Every tree had the same distance on each side of it from the other trees and all of them looked as if they were the same size. Actually, as I looked across the massive eld I sort of got bored as it seemed that all the trees were identical for miles and miles. Then something happened, I began to let my vision focus in on a smaller cluster of trees. That is when I began to see each tree for what it was, though at a distance and a quick glance they all looked just alike. As I focused on one tree and then another I noticed just the opposite of my rst conclusion, in that I now noticed that each tree was very different from the one standing next to it and even all those around were very different. Then as I broadened my view to where I once was, I noticed that they were not all alike but each one very different from all the others in the grove. Some had missing branches some were missing because they had been pruned by the farmer, others because a storm had taken its toll on the tree, and drought and weather conditions had formed the direction in which their branches turned. As I traveled and passed by more and more of these great orchards I began to see an awesome picture of what it is to stand together as we grow. That as these trees stand together in the groves they are a picture of strength, of uniformity. But as I looked at each tree individually, I saw the scars of the storms and the pruning of the farmer which made each tree a magni cent symbol of strength and character which would make it a great bearer of fruit in the coming Spring. These trees reminded me how important it is that we as disciples of Christ, created in the image of God, may have individual scars and character in our life because of where were from and the community in which we grew up or the school we attended. Yes, individually we are an awesome picture of the creative wisdom of God our creator, but when we stand together in the strength and the power of His might and love, there is not a greater picture in this world of the immeasurable, indescribable power, love and wisdom of God that cannot be mistaken for anything else. That is why God gave us the wonderful analogy of the body of Christ in 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 which says For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body ... whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free ... and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For in fact the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. ... And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually ( NKJV ). It is time the body of Christ (His Church) unite and be a great light to a dark and dying world, and become salt in this world that others will thirst for Christ (Matthew 5:13-16). Because we have in our possession the only source of absolute Truth, The Holy Bible. Tim Hall is senior pastor of Gully Springs Baptist Church and author of Church Go To Hell! Please?

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us. 1 John 4: 11-12The Word Is LoveI saw a bumper sticker recently which said The school is life. The lesson is love. Life is indeed a school, and it doesnt have to be the school of hard knocks, as some would have it. Far better that life be a school where loving kindness and compassion are the constant lesson. Again and again throughout the Bible the centrality of love is preached. Consider 1 John 4:8, where we are told that Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. The Bible is an epic saga of Gods love for humanity (and the rest of creation) despite mans tendency to turn away from God and not appreciate the wondrous bounty of Gods love. Perhaps we should consider how we might live a life devoted to love, and how our thoughts, love always and unconditionally. Wednesday, February 29, 2012 Page 4By Rev. James L. Snyder Whenever somebody mentions the word free in my presence my right eye turns a vivid jaundice. It is not that I have anything against the word free; just the person who is trying to use it to gain some kind of an advantage over me. I know anybody employing this mono-verbiage, is hiding some very long strings. My father taught me a long time ago that there are no free lunches. Occasionally somebody will advertise a free lunch and I go and nd out the lunch is free but they are going to charge you to get out of that restaurant. In the end, it would have been cheaper to buy my own lunch. My philosophy is simply this; if I cannot afford it, I do not want it. In my vast experience down through the years, I have discovered that I cannot afford free. And I think I know why, my understanding of the word free and the person employing that word is not the same. When I use the word free, I am insinuating that there is absolutely no cost associated with this product whatsoever. When others use the word free, they often are insinuating that I am just a free market for them to take advantage of in the neighborhood of my money. Unfortunately, I do not live in that neighborhood anymore. I especially do not accept any free offers via the telephone. If someone has something to give me for nothing, let him come to my door, hand it to me, shake my hand and get out of Dodge. To me, thats what free is all about. Just the other day I received one of those telephone calls. I must confess that I was in a rather curmudgeon attitude and was just looking around for someone on which to spit my scorn. Then the telephone rang. When I answered the phone, it turned out to be someone offering me, absolutely free, with no cost to me absolutely, a free crime prevention program for my blessed domicile. No thank you, sir, I said as politely as I could. Im not really interested. I assure you I have no Ph.D or D.D. attached to my name whatsoever and yet as simple as I am, I understood what the phrase Im not really interested was all about. Not so my affable telephone caller. But I assure you, sir, that this program is absolutely free to you. Its our way to say thank you to some of our customers. He rattled on as though we were having only a oneway conversation. If this is going to be a one-way conversation, who will take up the offering? I think I know. After ve long minutes of him telling me how important it was for me to have security in my home and how his product was absolutely free to me, I nally got a word in edgewise. But I have my own security system, thank you. There is a slight pause and then he said, What is your home security system, if I may ask? All right. I will confess right now that I had a wee bit of naughtiness on my mind, but in my own defense the telephone caller opened the door. I always believe where there is an open door somebody ought to step in. My home security system is called, Napoleontwo-Claws, and furthermore Im quite satis ed with it. There was another pause on the other end of the phone and I heard someone clear their throat and then ask, Ive never heard of that program. What is Napoleon-two-Claws? You know what it is like when you are trying not to laugh and it is about all you can do not to laugh? For a brief moment, I felt a little bit guilty but then I remembered who was on the other end of the phone. Somebody that was trying to con me with some kind of free thingamajig. The Napoleon-twoClaws home security program that I have in my house is my cat. I call him Napoleon because he walks around with his right paw stuck in his coat between two buttons. There was an extended pause on the other end of the phone and nally he said, What would you do, sir, if someone broke into your house? Id send owers to the funeral. The funeral? Whos funeral? Why, the funeral of the guy who tried to break into my house while Napoleontwo-Claws was on duty. The rst moment an intruder would enter into my home, good old Napoleon would claw that sorry person to death. Then feeling good about my momentum at this point I continued, I live there and I have a hard time getting in my house without being clawed to death by Napoleon. And I feed the cat. My cat is the meanest, grumpiest, most cantankerous animal on Gods green earth. If anybody, and I mean anybody, can get past Napoleon they can have anything in my house. Absolutely free. At that moment, I heard a distinctive click and I realized our conversation was over. I guess whatever he had that was free did not measure up to good old Napoleon-two-Claws. The only one I trust to give me something is God. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). What Jesus gives is absolutely free. The Rev.
