Holmes BOCC eyes road repair By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Board of County Commissioners reviewed possible ways to x and repair roads during their regularly scheduled meeting on Feb. 28, including what would be needed to complete Rum Road. Grant Writer Bob Jones informed the board they have completed two-thirds of the road and that in the third phase they found dif culties, such as needing $14,400 for matching grant funds for the Community Development Block Grant to complete the road. Jones said they also had dif culties getting the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to issue a permit to allow them to complete the last phase. Jones said he was con dent the county would get the permit since the jurisdiction has changed hands to Northwest Florida Water Management District. What happens to the money and the permit if the grant falls through? Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked. Jones explained the permit is good for ve years and they can get an extension if needed, giving them time to reapply till the grant was approved. The board approved of pulling the matching grant funding from contingency with a vote of 4 to 1, with Commissioner Phillip Music voting no. Commissioner Monty Merchant presented the board with an issue on County Road 181 near Leonia, which had three large hazardous holes. The largest hole is estimated to cost $35,000 to repair and the smallest is estimated to cost $10,255. The worst spot is big enough to lose a Pinto in, Merchant said. The board agreed to have their engineers look at the holes and place blockades in front of the holes until further action can be taken. See BOCC A2 Ponce de Leon pushes to rent ag building to welder By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE DE LEON The Town of Ponce de Leon has undertaken the task of trying to rent out the old high schools ag shop to Carl Gillman as a welding shop, which was discussed Thursday during its regularly scheduled meeting. The town has a 99-year lease agreement with the Holmes County School Board and is using it as a storage area. Gillman approached the town during its regularly scheduled meeting on Feb. 2, proposing that he rent the building for $150 per month for ve years. He said he has $300,000 of insurance to cover any damage that might occur during his occupancy. Gillman had been cleaning the building on a regular basis and is completing needed repairs to the building, such as a new Gulf Power service line that, of which Gillman offered to pay half the cost. The town council informed Gillman that the city would need permission from the Holmes County School Board before they could rent the building out, but approved of Gillman renting the building pending the approval by the HCSB. Ponce de Leon Town Clerk Beth Peterson informed the Town Council that discussions have been made with the HCSB at the school boards last regularly scheduled meeting. They said they didnt think it was possible because it may be a possible re hazard and that they would have their attorney call our attorney, Peterson said. Ponce de Leon Town Attorney Lyndia Spears said no one from Holmes County has contacted her. The ag shop was a welding shop for the high school and their re hazard argument is moot, Spears said. Mayor Sheena Hougland said the ag shop has been vandalized and it would continue to be vandalized until someone occupies the building. Were responsible for that building anyway and weve got it insured, Hougland said. Peterson said it would be a service to the town if Gillman was to open shop there, not just for the $150 per month, but that Gillman would provide welding services to the city.

The board approved the request provided the residents pay they cost of the rocks and fuel required for delivery. County Attorney Jeff Goodman brought up an issue of where the county did $50,000 in maintenance and repairs to a home through the SHIP program, but before a lean agreement could be established the homeowner passed away. Goodman suggested the county probate the property as the son is legal heir so that the SHIP funding can continue its course. Holmes County Emergency Management Director Wanda Stafford came before the Board after nding the 911 Communication Center was having some issues with space. The 911 Communication Center is receiving new equipment but lacks the space to house it. Stafford said there was additional space in the Emergency Operations Center and there had been a request to store the equipment there, but it had been denied. Stafford explained at the time of the request it was prohibited to use that space for 911 Communication Center, but there had been a recent change that allows for 911 dispatch to be housed within the EOC as long as it doesnt hinder the EOCs emergency functions. Stafford suggested sending a formal request seeing if 911 Communication Center can be relocated to the EOC. Chairperson Ron Monk then suggested that there be a list of the people and agencies involved in the situation and hold a discussion of what needs to be done and review all that can be done to resolve the matter. Right now were not sure what direction were going in, Monk said. Well weigh our options before we send the letter. Matt Watkin with Modern Tech Squad presented the board with a proposal to service all of the county agencies for a at fee of $1,500 a month. That means well be on call 24/7, and youll have four licensed technicians available at all times, Watkin said. Well send a monthly report on every computer, and theyll be monitored to make sure all systems remain stable as a preventative measure. Watkin said that the Modern Tech Squad already services the Board, Council on Aging and the sheriffs of ce. King suggested they get together with the countys department heads to discuss the contract further and Goodman said that it would have to be put up for bid, since the amount surpasses that allowed for the county to approve. Music needed approval for a temporary replacement for his foreman, but the man he has in mind is related to someone on the crew. Young advised it was all right for him to use the relative as a temporary replacement for his foreman, however, while this relative is working as temporary foreman he will only be allowed to act as a supervisor and will not be allowed to promote, demote or discipline because he is related. The board then approved of Musics request. Merchant presented a request by the Down Home Street Festival Committee to wave the fee for using three county poles to advertise for the upcoming Down Home Street Festival, which is $45 per pole. Absolutely not, waving a fee is still waving a fee, and we cant get that started no matter what the cause, King said. Merchant made a motion to wave the fee but it died because of lack of second. The board approved Merchants request to hire two temporary inmate work crew supervisors for the summer at $10 per hour and 40 hours a week. BOCC from page A1 Hougland said if they had not heard from the school board that they should check on the status and go from there. Hougland also congratulated the Ponce de Leon girls basketball team for winning the state championship. Were looking into putting up a new sign at the city limits saying that our girls are state champs and well give the old sign to the school, Houland said. Its just our way of showing how proud we are of our teams and their achievements. Peterson announced they had received an energy grant to insulate the old gyms roof and install an install an air conditioner. The Town Council approved of the Energy Strategy plan that was presented to them by their grant writer Nolan Baker at their last meeting, which involves speci c settings on the thermostat, insulating the water heater and replacing the windows. Council member Larry Coaker praised the re department. The re department is doing a really good job, Coaker said. Theyve been helping the county, and Im glad to see theyre out there doing such good work. Chairman Ronald Farrington said he had received a complaint about the city park bathrooms being dirty. We only clean the bathroom once a week because thats all we can afford and it only takes a day for those bathrooms to run out of toilet paper, Farrington said. If we could only get a handle on the vandalism wed be doing a lot better. We had a door on the bathrooms with a petition on it and it wasnt even a week before the doors were torn off and the petitions were gone. Fire Chief JR Brookshire presented his report with the total calls for February as seven and the total calls for the year as 17. He also reported the re department received their new re truck. Farrington asked what was required to drive the new re trucks and Brookshire said that as long as they are Emergency Vehicle Operation Course certi ed they can operate the vehicle and that he has four that are certi ed. Farrington asked that Brookshire verify that there is no special license required. The next scheduled Ponce de Leon Town Council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 5. PONCE DE LEON from page A1

Call 638-0212. Democratic caucuses coming up Dear Editor, Our Holmes County voters might wonder why only the Republicans held a presidential primary this year. I will try to explain. There is no announced opposition to Barack Obamas candidacy for president in 2012, so all the Democratic local and state organizations are holding nominating caucuses where the delegates to the Democratic National Convention are selected. County Democratic Executive Committees will hold county caucuses, where delegates to the state caucus will be elected. Delegates to the Democratic National Convention will be selected at the state caucus. The Democratic candidate for president will be chosen by these delegates at the national convention. The Holmes County Democratic caucus will be held on May 5 in the County Commissioners meeting room between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. All registered Holmes County democrats are asked to attend and vote for delegates to the state convention in Tampa on June 1-3. Any county democrat can run for these delegate positions. Holmes County is allocated two delegates, one male and one female. The delegates chosen must be able to fund their own way to the state caucus, and to the National Convention if chosen to be a national delegate. Anyone wishing to run for one of these delegate positions can obtain application forms by calling the caucus chairman at 547-2045. The Democratic National Convention will take place in Charlotte, N.C., Sept 3-6. Charles Smith Chairman, Holmes County DEC Bonifay Fifth-grade student seeks your help Dear Readers, Hi! My name is Ben R. I am a fth grade student at Harlan Intermediate School in Harlan, Iowa. My class is studying the history and geography of the United States. I would really appreciate it if you could send me pictures, a souvenir and any information about the amazing state of Florida. I was really lucky to pick the state of Florida because Florida has beautiful scenery and really nice people. I am also a fan of almost all the sports teams in Florida. My teacher, Mrs. Newlin, would really like it if you could send a car license pate for a school project, if possible. I really appreciate your time. Thank you. Sincerely, Ben R. Mrs. Newlins S.S. Class Harlan Intermediate School 1401 19th St. Harlan, IA 51537 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR With Facebook and other media, everyone knows what were thinking before we do. But since I havent really got into Facebook very much, I am privileged to use the newspaper as my forum. When Marianne Elam was born 25 years ago in Bay Medical Center to fellow teacher Monica, Madeleine McMaster and I rushed there after we heard that something was terribly wrong and the baby had been rushed to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Monicas life was changed that day from being a librarian at Bonifay Middle School to being the mother and caregiver of a special needs child with emphasis on special. It took years of doctors visits to Shands, Birmingham, Ala., Knoxville, Tenn., and I dont know where all, but with surgeries, therapies, social workers, etc. Marianne learned to eat, to speak, to sit up, crawl and even walk. She went to school (BES) and experienced the wonderful teachers there including Debbie VanLandingham Howell and Karen Anderson Newman. She went through BMS with her mom and Donna Rhodes as her teachers. She even was a part of HCHS, where special family friend Thomas Rhodes escorted her to the junior-senior prom. Because of the perseverance of her mom and in spite of multiple trips to emergency rooms, examination rooms, surgical wards, pediatric units, therapists and doctors of ces, Marianne became a integral part of the Bonifay community and beyond. She never had a Dale Carnegie course, but she knew and practiced the basics. She never met a stranger. If she did, she made their acquaintance by nding something nice to say about them. Her uncanny knack for seeing the good in people opened many doors for her and her mother. In turn, she brought out the best in people. She drew a group of special support persons. Her grandparents, Don and Marianne Hinson, were there for her and even more so when they moved back to Marianna from Atlanta. Donna Rhodes and Jalisa Powell Brannon, homebound and at-school teachers, Wanda Langford (Aunt Fluffy) and her daughters, Nikki and especially Brooke (My Pony), Kim, Grannie Buzz (Mrs. Frances Goddin), Velma (Dr. Stubbs), and many I cant name. For each one, she gave a special name. I was honored to be numbered among special friends though I have been there more to support her mother emotionally than for Marianne. My main claim to fame with her is that I gave her Percy. She was, as Marianne told the vet her breed, a black and white, long haired, Aunt Hazel, Percy cat. Some very special friends preceded Marianne in death: Don Hersman Sr., Linda Steverson and Claudia Worthing. I am sure there were others. What a comfort to know there were people like that waiting to welcome her into her heavenly home. Before our grandchildren came along, my husband and I sought genetic counseling because of having had birth-defective babies. One of the doctors used the term mistakes of nature. These things happen, and there is no known reason or cause. Some might describe the multiple birth-defects which Marianne had as mistakes of nature. But her life had purpose, which she cheerfully ful lled. She showed us how to live uncomplaining lives in the face of overwhelming challenges. She saw good in everyone she came into contact with, and she brought out the good in us. She enjoyed life. Old Mt. Zion Baptist Church Pastor Chris Carroll spoke of how Marianne enjoyed her gifts of cheering people up, of singing, of praying and her love for Gods creatures. Instead of calling Marianne Elam a mistake of nature, Id prefer to call her one of Gods special gifts. Editors note: Last weeks Happy Corner was left out of the TimesAdvertiser and is reprinted here. Recently we watched a program on TV showing that horticulture therapy is working. On a plot of ground near Jacksonville, veterans of recent wars who sustained physical and psychological injuries are nding Veterans Farm a place to learn job skills while healing from the physical, mental and emotional effects of war. After Sgt. Adam Burke returned from 15 months in Iraq with a Purple Heart awarded for injuries sustained in combat there, he saw a young veteran willing and able to work, sitting by the mall hungry and depressed, but too proud to beg. A young man who grew up on a Florida farm, active in FFA, Burke knew a hand-out was not what was needed for our returning veterans. He had a vision of combining therapy, work, education and socialization through growing blueberries and blackberries and other farm ventures. A testimonial from one disabled veteran, president of Healing Families Ministries Robert Brown, says, This is one of the greatest projects Ive ever been involved in; nobody else is providing this type of therapy on such a large scale for veterans. For the rst time in six winters, I was able to overcome my depression from post-traumatic stress syndrome while working on the Veterans Farm. Several men on the TV program expressed the same sentiment. Most were unable to verbalize how the contact with the soil, the growing of plants, the tending of animals in the clean air of the country were working to help them to overcome PTSD. But all agreed that it was therapeutic. In visiting with Dawn Barone, sixth-grade science teacher at the Bonifay Middle School, we also were discussing the value of her gardening project and the profound effect it is having on her students. It is just impossible to explain how the process of tilling the soil, planting the seeds and watching them emerge and begin to grow into an edible product elicits a sense of wonder and accomplishment. I thought of the Greek mythological god Antaeus. He was the son of Gala and Poseidon, a Libyan giant with seemingly invincible strength. When Antaeus challenged Hercules to a wrestling match, Hercules easily tossed Antaeus to the ground time after time, but each time he sprang back rejuvenated. Hercules realized that Gala, the earth, was the mother of Antaeus and that contact with the earth was the source of Antaeus strength. To defeat Antaeus, Hercules held him aloft until his power drained away. The stories in mythology are an attempt to explain things that occur in nature. Like Antaeus, the wounded warriors who are healing at the Veterans Farm are seeing their strength return as they plant and pick blueberries in the handicapaccessible rows, build outbuildings for farm use, care for the chickens, ducks, goats and other small animals, and work alongside others who have shared the devastation war brings to the physical and psychological body. Two goals of the farm are to show the public that veterans and disabled veterans can be successful working in the civilian world and to provide a combination of work, therapy, education and socialization to help veterans reintegrate into society through sustainable agriculture training. I believe Sgt. Adam Burke is on the right path to giving our returning vets hope and help while training them for skills with which they may re-enter society as productive citizens instead of helpless drains on society. There are ways you can help in this endeavor. To learn more about the Veterans Farm, visit veteransfarm. com.

The more Floridians we get back to work, the stronger Floridas economy will be, Gov. Rick Scott said. The results from Februarys Monthly Job Placement Report demonstrate consistent progress, with 31,239 individuals placed in jobsm including 7,112 people who were receiving unemployment compensation, up from 6,536 unemployment compensation claimants in January. The boards reported 32,965 placements in January and 25,201 in December. Regional workforce boards statewide have made helping Floridians enter, remain and advance in the workforce while strengthening the states business climate their top priority, said Chris Hart IV, president/ CEO of Workforce Florida, the states chief workforce policy organization. The goal of the Monthly Job Placement Report is to highlight and share jobplacement achievement so regional workforce boards and other workforce system partners can identify and replicate best practices and strategies that connect job seekers with employment. The report also provides another measurement of Floridas economic activities. Workforce Solutions, in South Florida, earned its rst No. 1 ranking in the Monthly Job Placement Report, up from No. 9 in January. Achieving No. 1 on the Governors Monthly Job Placement Report re ects the dedication our organization has in helping our regional economy climb back to prosperity, president/ CEO of Workforce Solutions Richard Stetson said. I am extremely proud of the performance of our entire organization in achieving this level of success. Our team works diligently with local businesses and job seekers to train, recruit and place individuals in positions to help local companies expand and grow. Workforce Solutions has focused on helping veterans gain employment placing more than 300 veterans since November. Additionally, the board opened services centers last year designed to provide the longterm unemployed with extra services to improve their opportunities to land a new job and has since integrated these services and customers into the areas one-stop career centers. Floridas workforce system is made up of Workforce Florida, the statewide workforce investment board; the Department of Economic Opportunity, responsible for policy implementation, administrative and scal management; and the 24 regional workforce boards and nearly 100 one-stop career centers, charged with the design and delivery of local workforce services. TOP JOB PLACEMENT The top 10 ranked regional workforce boards for reported job placements in February are: 1. Workforce Solutions Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties 2. Pasco Hernando Workforce Board 3. South Florida Workforce Miami-Dade and Monroe counties 4. Florida Crown Workforce Board Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and Union counties 5.

Wednesday, March 7, 2012 OUTDOORS Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section No one I have talked to is having a difficult time letting go of deer season. Most people are simply glad it is over. Now is the time to clean up those guns and store them. The only part I regret is having to clean up the black powder rifle. You can load it up and keep it loaded most of the season, but fire it just once or several times and you have a job on your hands. If you dont really clean, and I mean really clean, a black-powder rifle after firing you can destroy a very expensive gun by leaving burned powder in the barrel. The next year you will have a rust bucket on your hands. Unlike a center fire rifle that can be cleaned in a soso manner, a black powder rifle requires special care. The gun needs to be taken apart as far as a non-gunsmith can take it. Black powder is very corrosive and will ruin the barrel. I got my barrel as clean as I could, but Im going to have to take the gun outside where I have plenty of room to complete the job. So if you dont like the job of cleaning your gun dont buy a black powder rifle to hunt with. Of course hunting season is not exactly over. Hunters just switch gears and go for turkeys. Turkey hunting is sort of like quail hunting in that its a gentlemans sport, but only if you do it right. The final destination with any hunt is to come home with some game. Turkey hunting is sort of like that, except it has to be done in a certain manner or you are just a meat hunter. The true manner of taking a turkey is to call the bird to you and not sitting half a day around an area you fed deer for six months and the turkeys got used to coming to. Believe it or not, many people hunt in that fashion. Sit and wait and they will come. Sort of like shooting quail on the ground that just isnt done by a real turkey hunter. But you would not believe the number of hunters who do so. I suppose if it sits right with these hunters they never will reveal their secret as long as they come home with a bird. They always will be great turkey hunters to their friends. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net KING COBIA By Tina Harbuck Florida Freedoms Newspapers Its not a rumor. The crew aboard the Full Pull spotted the rst cobia of the season Wednesday afternoon just off the beach at Navarre. However, the crew, which has pulled in the rst cobia of the season 10 times to kick off the Destin Cobia Tournament at HarborWalk Marina, wasnt so lucky Wednesday. She wouldnt bite, said Capt. Chris Wagner, who was shing along with Andy Block and Tyler Jenkins. All we had were choafer and pin sh, Block said. Not to mention the four-hour window of sunshine to catch a sh. And they didnt see the cobia until the last 15 minutes. Conservatively, she was 80 pounds, Block said. She was a pretty sh. The crew got to work the cobia and toss baits at her for about 15 minutes. After that the fog rolled in and we couldnt see nothing, Blocksaid. This was the Full Pulls rst time in search of cobia this season. Last year they landed the rst cobia of the season on March 10. Its been so warm lately, I just knew there would be a sh out there, Block said, But the ol girl got away. The Full Pull was headed back out Thursday in hopes of landing that rst one. However, they soon might nd themselves with company on the water as others gear up for the season. Im hoping for a good season, said Capt. John Tenore of the Dawn Patrol, but its hard to tell. And it will probably start early, because of the warm weather. Capt. Tenore took rst place in the 30foot and under division of the Destin Cobia Tournament last year with an 86.6-pounder caught on March 17. We saw 12 that day and ended up with three, he said. The number of sh caught last year overall wasnt real high, Tenore said, but we had good quality sh. And if the sh decide to show up early, Weve just got to go with it. Tenore is making plans to hit the water next week in search of cobia. But before he does or anyone does You need to make sure all your tackle is in order, he said. New lines and leaders for the year. Its also good to have an assortment of bait, Tenore said. He suggested such baits as choafer, eels, mullet, cobia jigs and tube lures. Tenore said he likes to take a black and an orange tube lure, until the eels are in for bait. He said one of the biggest cobia hes ever caught was on a tube lure. Another tool of the trade are a good pair of polarized sunglasses to be able to spot the cobia in the water. Also bring plenty of clothes, because you never know when the wind might kick up on the water, he said. As for where, I like to sh in close if its not rough, Tenore said, adding that 20 to 40 feet of water is the sweet spot. However, if its rough, you have to sh outside the break. Early arrivals of cobia usually show up in 62 to 63 degree water, if the conditions are right, Tenore said. But when the water temps hit 68 to 70, its on then, Tenore said. Were already getting antsy, he said. And I wouldnt be surprised if one was caught early. Capt. Kirk Reynolds of the SS Enterprise, who is usually right in the thick of things, said, Its going to be an interesting season. He tends to think the cobia will just trickle in instead of a big run. But its possible well see. And folks might be seeing one sooner than they think as boat captains make plans to hit the water in the next few days.

Come and Play in Bonifay LU C K OF THE IR I SH SP E CI A L By Cathrine Lamb Editorial Assistant Clamb@chipleypaper.com It seems as if the time Denny Hamlin spent in Arizona in the offseason practicing paid off for him Sunday in the Sprint Cup Series Subway Fresh Fit 500. Hamlin outraced Kevin Harvick and 42 other drivers to win Sundays race in Phoenix. This race also was plagued by problems with the new, supposedly better, cars. Mark Martin, driver of No. 55, was plagued with a faulty circuit breaker in his car, which makes me wonder, what are they doing putting a circuit breaker in a race car? Martin was not the only one who. Tony Stewart also had a problem with the breaker blowing in his car. With 66 laps to go, a caution was put out on the track and, as he did in Daytona last week, Stewart turned the engine off and let his car coast awhile. He then tried to re re the engine, but it didnt work. He had to coast into pit row to see what the problem was, and it was a circuit breaker. Come on, put the carburetors back so they can re re the engine. When Stewart nally made it back out on the track, he was two laps down and ended up nishing 22nd. By nishing 16th and 22nd in the rst two races, it puts the defending champ in the 15th spot in points. Jimmie Johnson received a penalty for not passing inspection for the Daytona 500 last week. He was ned $100,000 and his crew chief was suspended for six races. He started in Phoenix with a negative 23 points. Even though Johnson nished in the top ve, he is still 37th in overall points. He will have to nish well in all races to even have a shot at making it into the chase this year. Ex-driver Jeremy May eld is free on a $100,000 bond after turning himself in to authorities. He is accused of stealing Red Bull Racing property and other businesses property. May eld was banned from NASCAR in 2009 after failing a random drug test in Richmond, Va. He was arrested again in 2011 on charges of possession of meth.

On March 9, the Chipley basketball players will be rewarded by Gilmore. The player of the year award trophy will be awarded on March 28. Tigers recognized by NBA player SEC takes its case to court FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) The Southeastern Conference is the unquestioned king of college football these days. Six straight national championships will do that for you. On the court, however, the SEC is ghting for respect. The league hasnt won a mens basketball national championship since Floridas back-to-back titles in 2006-07, and it has only one Final Four appearance during that span. Its low point came in 2009, when only three teams were selected for the NCAA Tournament. The conference tournament starts Thursday in New Orleans. Itll be yet another chance for the rest of the SEC to show that the league is more than Kentucky and a bunch of other teams. The No. 1 Wildcats (301, 16-0 SEC) completed an undefeated run through the league with their 74-59 win over No. 22 Florida on Sunday. They own the conferences lone Final Four appearance since 2007, reaching the national semi nals last season before falling to eventual national champion Connecticut. Kentucky coach John Calipari joined the SEC following the 2009 season when Mississippi State, Tennessee and LSU were the only teams selected to the NCAA Tournament and nished a combined 1-3. The Tigers were the highest seed of the group, a No. 8, and lost to top-seeded North Carolina in the second round. Calipari is 40-8 in the SECs regular season with the Wildcats, but he bristles at the mention of the leagues recent struggles. He believes the SEC has ve or six teams capable of reaching the second weekend of play in this seasons NCAA Tournament, and that no one will want to play teams such as the Gators, Vanderbilt and others come tournament time. The perception of the SEC as a second-tier league has had a direct impact on its NCAA tournament selections in recent years. Last season, Alabama won the West Division and had a 2111 overall record following a loss to Kentucky in the SEC Tournament, 12-4 in the leagues regular season. The Crimson Tides resume, however, wasnt enough to earn an NCAA selection as the SEC was left with ve teams in the eld. In order to generate more discussion about SEC teams in the NCAA eld, the conference changed its setup after last season. It eliminated the two-division format that had been in place since the 1992 expansion that brought South Carolina and Arkansas to the table, leaving a singular 12-team league. Alabama, which nished fth, would have once again won the former West Division with its 20-10 overall record, 9-7 in the SEC.

From Staff Reports BONIFAY Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown thanks the rst responders and residents who assisted in locating a missing threeyear-old boy Feb. 25 afternoon in the Westville area of Holmes County. The call came into the Sheriffs Of ce at approximately 2:31 p.m. indicating that the toddler had walked away from his residence with the familys two dogs. Upon arrival, investigators learned that the toddler had been missing for almost two hours and the familys effort to locate him produced only the boys footprints in a wooded area. The toddlers wet clothing was soon located and concern of the searchers intensi ed. As the search continued Capt. Ronnie Bennett with the sheriffs of ce, who was in the wooded area, advised via radio that bloodhounds were needed at his location as he had located the childs fresh footprints along with tracks from the childs pets in a dim road. Bloodhounds from Holmes Correctional Institution responded to Bennetts location and the prison tracking dog quickly indicated that the child had recently been in the area. Moments later, to everyones relief, Bennett announced over the radio that the child was located and was uninjured. The child was missing for over three hours and had traveled approximately three miles through the woods. In response to this positive outcome, Brown said this is one of those times when everyone comes together to assist quickly and the results were outstanding. I was afraid for the child when I arrived because of the dense woods and ponds in the area and we were running out of daylight. The sheriff wanted to offer his thanks to everyone involved in the search as well as those persons and agencies that were in route to assist when the child was located.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com By Andrea Rodriguez The Associated Press HAVANA They cast snail shells to read their fortunes, proudly wear colorful necklaces to ward off illness, dress all in white and dance in bata drum ceremonies. But although their AfroCuban Santeria religion owes much to Roman Catholicism, many are decidedly unenthusiastic about Pope Benedict XVIs March 26-28 tour of Cuba, even if it is being hailed as a watershed moment for a church seeking to boost its in uence on this Communist-run island. Santero priests still remember the last time a pontiff came to town and atly refused to meet with them. They are expecting no better treatment this time, and some are openly disappointed. Their religion is by far the most popular on the island, with adherents outnumbering practicing mainstream Catholics 8-1. Yet as far as the Catholic church is concerned, we live in the basement, where nobody sees us, said Lazaro Cuesta, a Santero high priest with a strong grip and a penetrating gaze. We have already seen one pope visit ... and at no moment did he see t to talk to us. Cuestas bitterness stems from what many Santeria leaders see as an unforgivable snub by Pope John Paul II during his historic 1998 tour. Before that visit, Santero high priests, or babalawo, led a daylong ceremony to ask the spirits to protect John Paul and make his trip a success. As men, women and children danced to the throb of African drums, the priests blew cigar smoke and spat consecrated alcohol to salute the dead. But while the pope met with Evangelicals, Orthodox leaders and representatives of the islands minuscule Jewish community, he never deigned to meet with the Santeria practitioners who had danced for his good health, nor even to acknowledge their faith. Experts say as many as 80 percent of islanders observe some kind of Afro-Cuban religion, be it Santeria, which is more properly known as Regla de Ocha-Ifaor, or one of its lesser-known siblings. Practicing Catholics number fewer than 10 percent, and as elsewhere in Latin America, that share is under assault from conversions to Protestant and evangelical denominations. The 84-year-old popes schedule is considerably shorter than John Pauls ve-day visit was, and it includes no events with Santeros, or leaders of any other religions for that matter. A Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Benedicts schedule could still be tweaked, but he absolutely ruled out a meeting with Santeria representatives. Lombardi said Santeria does not have an institutional leadership, which the Vatican is used to dealing with in cases when it arranges meetings with other religions. It is not a church in the traditional sense, Lombardi said. A decision not to meet with Santeros is in keeping with Benedicts history of vehement opposition to any whiff of syncretism the combining of different beliefs and practices on the ground that it could somehow imply that all faiths are equal. Some also blame historical racism toward Santerias Native American and African traditions. The pope may oppose these traditions, but they are an integral part of islanders daily life, even that of its Catholics. All Cubans know that a woman dressed in yellow honors Ochum, a patron of feminine sensuality related in Catholicism to the Virgin of Charity. Believers crawl on hands and knees in processions of homage to Babalu-Aye, or St. Lazarus, protector of the sick. Relations between Santeros and Catholics have improved since the early days of the islands 1950 revolution, when Afro-Cuban worshippers were ostracized by both the church and the Communist Party, and those who dared to attend Mass decked out in all-white Santero garb were routinely ejected. However, priests still give homilies critical of AfroCuban religious tradition. The two faiths have arrived at a tense coexistence while inhabiting dramatically different spaces in island society. Cardinal Jaime Ortega, the head of the Catholic church in Cuba, consults with President Raul Castro on weighty political matters; Santero babalawos tend to the spiritual needs of the majority. Neither side talks to the other. Scholars say Santeria, which was imported to Cuba through slaves brought from the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria, remains on the political margins due to its scattered, nonhierarchical nature, centuries of taboo and the latent racism that keeps Afro-Cuban faiths from being fully accepted in the fraternity of religions. Santeria is as much a religion as any other, said University of Havana ethnologist Maria Ileana Faguaga Iglesias. But its structure is not vertical; it does not have a maximum leader, it has no buildings and it has never been part of any political power. When it rst emerged on the island, prohibitions forced Santeria practitioners to hide their worship of orishas, or spirits, behind the names of Catholic saints. During Spanish rule and in the early years of the republic, Santeros had no choice but to accept Catholic baptism since church parishes were the only ones keeping birth registries. Historically, at some point all Santeros had some Catholic practice. The Catholic Church was power and was of cial, and others were persecuted, Faguaga said. By the end of the 19th century, Santeria began emerging from underground. Today, it ourishes openly and has spread through emigration to the U.S., Puerto Rico, Venezuela and elsewhere. Santeria is very extended among the people, more so than when I was young, said Monsignor Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, vicar general of Havana and great-grandson of one of Cubas founding fathers. Not just in people of African origin, but also in people of European origin, whites, who today are also Santeros. Santeros nevertheless took it as just another sign that on an island with a white majority, some still see it as a slave-barracks faith, an idea that goes against Cuban ideals of respect for diversity. John Pauls decision to ignore the Santeros, Cuesta said, was a decision to deny our national patrimony ... brought to us by men in chains who arrived as slaves in this country.

This Message Courtesy of Family One of the valuable lessons which I learned growing up was that family is important. My father was fond of saying that friends would come and go, but that family would always be there for you. I also recall how painful it was to both of my parents when there was an argument between siblings. Brothers mortal enemies, a little healthy competition is okay, but siblings should always stick up for each other. If there are rifts in your family, do your best to heal them, and strive to help your family and always be there in times of need. We should have this same attitude to our extended family, to our aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and even distant cousins. But, we should also realize that we are all Gods children and thus part of the human family. No doubt it pains God to see his children From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundar ies of their lands. God did this so that they would him, though he is not far from any one of us. . .As some of your own poets have said, We are his offspring. Acts 17: 26-28 Wednesday, March 7, 2012 Page 4 By Rev. James L. Snyder I nd it quite amusing that some of the brightest and richest people in our country do not seem to have a clue as to what they are doing. Most do not have the common sense that God gave to a caterpillar. As Abraham Lincoln used to say, common sense is not as common as it used to be. Amen, to that one. The nancial experts are telling us that we need to buy gold or silver to safeguard our investments. I am way ahead of the game. Several years ago, I got a gold tooth. Fortunately, for me, I got it before the nancial crisis in our country. I cannot tell you what a remarkable feeling it is to walk around with your fortune in your mouth. I hear about all of the investment schemes that are supposed to make me rich. I have a sneaking suspicion that the only people getting rich are those with the investment schemes. They want us to buy stocks and bonds and futures. I never heard of anything so silly in all my life. What would I do with stocks, bonds and futures, whatever in the world they are, in my portfolio. I have no idea what a portfolio is but I am certain it has something to do with these investment schemes. I just do not want anybody folioing around with my port, thank you very much, sir. If I got my facts right, and I looked it up in the dictionary, port has something to do with wine. Why would I want to put a bottle of port into my folio and pretend it is some kind of an investment? I really have to give it to these investment schemers. They really know how to pull the wool over our eyes. I want to go on record as saying that they are not pulling any wool over my eyes. Just leave my wool alone. If I want my wool pulled, it certainly will not be over my eyes, I will tell you that right here. This wool pulling sounds more like sheep eecing to me, and I want nothing to do with it. For me I have discovered a way of safeguarding my wealth. My basic nancial philosophy is simply spend less than I make. I know that is a revolutionary concept in todays world, but it has stood me in good stead for many a year. We live in a culture that has absolutely no spending control whatsoever. This culture does not know the relationship between saving money and spending money. For example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came home the other day and in a very exuberant tone told me how much she saved at the grocery store. I saved $119.23 today at the grocery store. Isnt that terri c? Being the humble, demure sort of guy that I am, I did not ask her a question that was buzzing around my head at the time. The question was, how much did it cost me to save you that much money? Having a happy home is more important to me than exploring truth at its core especially in this area. My nancial strategy down through the years has been a very regular and wise investment plan. I am not quite sure how I came up with this marvelous plan, but one day it just hit me. Ever since that time, I have been using my nancial investment plan. My investment plan only cost me $19.79 back in the year of our Lord 1986. Since that time, it has faithfully served me and I have no complaints. I have through the years thought about upgrading my investment plan, but then what would the purpose be? Back in 1986, I saw in the mens department of the JCPenney store in our community a very nicely tailored navy blue and gold striped gentlemans vest. It immediately caught my attention and as I examined it, I noticed that inside this vest was a variety of pockets. I looked at them and that is when it hit me. Down through the years I have often wondered why somebody else did not come up with this idea. I guess I am just a genius. I bought the vest and brought it home and hung it in my closet after I rst labeled each of the inside pockets. There was a pocket for dollar bills, one for ve-dollar bills, one for ten-dollar bills and one that I do not use as often for $20 bills. Every time I have a little bit of change left over, I go to my closet turn to my vest and invest that money where nobody can nd it. My investment plan is more or less an in and out exchange program. When I have a need, I sometimes divest some money. Through the years, it has been a great blessing in my investment plan and is something that I am rather proud of. Solomon put it in great perspective concerning wealth when he said, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain ( Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). My investment plan is well buttoned up for future security. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Holmes BOCC eyes road repairBy Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Board of County Commissioners reviewed possible ways to x and repair roads during their regularly scheduled meeting on Feb. 28, including what would be needed to complete Rum Road. Grant Writer Bob Jones informed the board they have completed two-thirds of the road and that in the third phase they found dif culties, such as needing $14,400 for matching grant funds for the Community Development Block Grant to complete the road. Jones said they also had dif culties getting the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to issue a permit to allow them to complete the last phase. Jones said he was con dent the county would get the permit since the jurisdiction has changed hands to Northwest Florida Water Management District. What happens to the money and the permit if the grant falls through? Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked. Jones explained the permit is good for ve years and they can get an extension if needed, giving them time to reapply till the grant was approved. The board approved of pulling the matching grant funding from contingency with a vote of 4 to 1, with Commissioner Phillip Music voting no. Commissioner Monty Merchant presented the board with an issue on County Road 181 near Leonia, which had three large hazardous holes. The largest hole is estimated to cost $35,000 to repair and the smallest is estimated to cost $10,255. The worst spot is big enough to lose a Pinto in, Merchant said. The board agreed to have their engineers look at the holes and place blockades in front of the holes until further action can be taken.See BOCC A2Ponce de Leon pushes to rent ag building to welderBy Cecilia SpearsStaff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE DE LEON The Town of Ponce de Leon has undertaken the task of trying to rent out the old high schools ag shop to Carl Gillman as a welding shop, which was discussed Thursday during its regularly scheduled meeting. The town has a 99-year lease agreement with the Holmes County School Board and is using it as a storage area. Gillman approached the town during its regularly scheduled meeting on Feb. 2, proposing that he rent the building for $150 per month for ve years. He said he has $300,000 of insurance to cover any damage that might occur during his occupancy. Gillman had been cleaning the building on a regular basis and is completing needed repairs to the building, such as a new Gulf Power service line that, of which Gillman offered to pay half the cost. The town council informed Gillman that the city would need permission from the Holmes County School Board before they could rent the building out, but approved of Gillman renting the building pending the approval by the HCSB. Ponce de Leon Town Clerk Beth Peterson informed the Town Council that discussions have been made with the HCSB at the school boards last regularly scheduled meeting. They said they didnt think it was possible because it may be a possible re hazard and that they would have their attorney call our attorney, Peterson said. Ponce de Leon Town Attorney Lyndia Spears said no one from Holmes County has contacted her. The ag shop was a welding shop for the high school and their re hazard argument is moot, Spears said. Mayor Sheena Hougland said the ag shop has been vandalized and it would continue to be vandalized until someone occupies the building. Were responsible for that building anyway and weve got it insured, Hougland said. Peterson said it would be a service to the town if Gillman was to open shop there, not just for the $150 per month, but that Gillman would provide welding services to the city.See PONCE DE LEON A2Above, 2012 Baby Miss Down Home Palyn Bowers poses with her trophy at the Black Eye Pea Pageant.

The board approved the request provided the residents pay they cost of the rocks and fuel required for delivery. County Attorney Jeff Goodman brought up an issue of where the county did $50,000 in maintenance and repairs to a home through the SHIP program, but before a lean agreement could be established the homeowner passed away. Goodman suggested the county probate the property as the son is legal heir so that the SHIP funding can continue its course. Holmes County Emergency Management Director Wanda Stafford came before the Board after nding the 911 Communication Center was having some issues with space. The 911 Communication Center is receiving new equipment but lacks the space to house it. Stafford said there was additional space in the Emergency Operations Center and there had been a request to store the equipment there, but it had been denied. Stafford explained at the time of the request it was prohibited to use that space for 911 Communication Center, but there had been a recent change that allows for 911 dispatch to be housed within the EOC as long as it doesnt hinder the EOCs emergency functions. Stafford suggested sending a formal request seeing if 911 Communication Center can be relocated to the EOC. Chairperson Ron Monk then suggested that there be a list of the people and agencies involved in the situation and hold a discussion of what needs to be done and review all that can be done to resolve the matter. Right now were not sure what direction were going in, Monk said. Well weigh our options before we send the letter. Matt Watkin with Modern Tech Squad presented the board with a proposal to service all of the county agencies for a at fee of $1,500 a month. That means well be on call 24/7, and youll have four licensed technicians available at all times, Watkin said. Well send a monthly report on every computer, and theyll be monitored to make sure all systems remain stable as a preventative measure. Watkin said that the Modern Tech Squad already services the Board, Council on Aging and the sheriffs of ce. King suggested they get together with the countys department heads to discuss the contract further and Goodman said that it would have to be put up for bid, since the amount surpasses that allowed for the county to approve. Music needed approval for a temporary replacement for his foreman, but the man he has in mind is related to someone on the crew. Young advised it was all right for him to use the relative as a temporary replacement for his foreman, however, while this relative is working as temporary foreman he will only be allowed to act as a supervisor and will not be allowed to promote, demote or discipline because he is related. The board then approved of Musics request. Merchant presented a request by the Down Home Street Festival Committee to wave the fee for using three county poles to advertise for the upcoming Down Home Street Festival, which is $45 per pole. Absolutely not, waving a fee is still waving a fee, and we cant get that started no matter what the cause, King said. Merchant made a motion to wave the fee but it died because of lack of second. The board approved Merchants request to hire two temporary inmate work crew supervisors for the summer at $10 per hour and 40 hours a week. BOCC from page A1Hougland said if they had not heard from the school board that they should check on the status and go from there. Hougland also congratulated the Ponce de Leon girls basketball team for winning the state championship. Were looking into putting up a new sign at the city limits saying that our girls are state champs and well give the old sign to the school, Houland said. Its just our way of showing how proud we are of our teams and their achievements. Peterson announced they had received an energy grant to insulate the old gyms roof and install an install an air conditioner. The Town Council approved of the Energy Strategy plan that was presented to them by their grant writer Nolan Baker at their last meeting, which involves speci c settings on the thermostat, insulating the water heater and replacing the windows. Council member Larry Coaker praised the re department. The re department is doing a really good job, Coaker said. Theyve been helping the county, and Im glad to see theyre out there doing such good work. Chairman Ronald Farrington said he had received a complaint about the city park bathrooms being dirty. We only clean the bathroom once a week because thats all we can afford and it only takes a day for those bathrooms to run out of toilet paper, Farrington said. If we could only get a handle on the vandalism wed be doing a lot better. We had a door on the bathrooms with a petition on it and it wasnt even a week before the doors were torn off and the petitions were gone. Fire Chief JR Brookshire presented his report with the total calls for February as seven and the total calls for the year as 17. He also reported the re department received their new re truck. Farrington asked what was required to drive the new re trucks and Brookshire said that as long as they are Emergency Vehicle Operation Course certi ed they can operate the vehicle and that he has four that are certi ed. Farrington asked that Brookshire verify that there is no special license required. The next scheduled Ponce de Leon Town Council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 5. PONCE DE LEON from page A1

Call 638-0212. Democratic caucuses coming upDear Editor, Our Holmes County voters might wonder why only the Republicans held a presidential primary this year. I will try to explain. There is no announced opposition to Barack Obamas candidacy for president in 2012, so all the Democratic local and state organizations are holding nominating caucuses where the delegates to the Democratic National Convention are selected. County Democratic Executive Committees will hold county caucuses, where delegates to the state caucus will be elected. Delegates to the Democratic National Convention will be selected at the state caucus. The Democratic candidate for president will be chosen by these delegates at the national convention. The Holmes County Democratic caucus will be held on May 5 in the County Commissioners meeting room between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. All registered Holmes County democrats are asked to attend and vote for delegates to the state convention in Tampa on June 1-3. Any county democrat can run for these delegate positions. Holmes County is allocated two delegates, one male and one female. The delegates chosen must be able to fund their own way to the state caucus, and to the National Convention if chosen to be a national delegate. Anyone wishing to run for one of these delegate positions can obtain application forms by calling the caucus chairman at 547-2045. The Democratic National Convention will take place in Charlotte, N.C., Sept 3-6.Charles SmithChairman, Holmes County DEC BonifayFifth-grade student seeks your helpDear Readers, Hi! My name is Ben R. I am a fth grade student at Harlan Intermediate School in Harlan, Iowa. My class is studying the history and geography of the United States. I would really appreciate it if you could send me pictures, a souvenir and any information about the amazing state of Florida. I was really lucky to pick the state of Florida because Florida has beautiful scenery and really nice people. I am also a fan of almost all the sports teams in Florida. My teacher, Mrs. Newlin, would really like it if you could send a car license pate for a school project, if possible. I really appreciate your time. Thank you. Sincerely,Ben R.Mrs. Newlins S.S. Class Harlan Intermediate School 1401 19th St. Harlan, IA 51537 LETTERS TO THE EDITORWith Facebook and other media, everyone knows what were thinking before we do. But since I havent really got into Facebook very much, I am privileged to use the newspaper as my forum. When Marianne Elam was born 25 years ago in Bay Medical Center to fellow teacher Monica, Madeleine McMaster and I rushed there after we heard that something was terribly wrong and the baby had been rushed to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Monicas life was changed that day from being a librarian at Bonifay Middle School to being the mother and caregiver of a special needs child with emphasis on special. It took years of doctors visits to Shands, Birmingham, Ala., Knoxville, Tenn., and I dont know where all, but with surgeries, therapies, social workers, etc. Marianne learned to eat, to speak, to sit up, crawl and even walk. She went to school (BES) and experienced the wonderful teachers there including Debbie VanLandingham Howell and Karen Anderson Newman. She went through BMS with her mom and Donna Rhodes as her teachers. She even was a part of HCHS, where special family friend Thomas Rhodes escorted her to the junior-senior prom. Because of the perseverance of her mom and in spite of multiple trips to emergency rooms, examination rooms, surgical wards, pediatric units, therapists and doctors of ces, Marianne became a integral part of the Bonifay community and beyond. She never had a Dale Carnegie course, but she knew and practiced the basics. She never met a stranger. If she did, she made their acquaintance by nding something nice to say about them. Her uncanny knack for seeing the good in people opened many doors for her and her mother. In turn, she brought out the best in people. She drew a group of special support persons. Her grandparents, Don and Marianne Hinson, were there for her and even more so when they moved back to Marianna from Atlanta. Donna Rhodes and Jalisa Powell Brannon, homebound and at-school teachers, Wanda Langford (Aunt Fluffy) and her daughters, Nikki and especially Brooke (My Pony), Kim, Grannie Buzz (Mrs. Frances Goddin), Velma (Dr. Stubbs), and many I cant name. For each one, she gave a special name. I was honored to be numbered among special friends though I have been there more to support her mother emotionally than for Marianne. My main claim to fame with her is that I gave her Percy. She was, as Marianne told the vet her breed, a black and white, long haired, Aunt Hazel, Percy cat. Some very special friends preceded Marianne in death: Don Hersman Sr., Linda Steverson and Claudia Worthing. I am sure there were others. What a comfort to know there were people like that waiting to welcome her into her heavenly home. Before our grandchildren came along, my husband and I sought genetic counseling because of having had birth-defective babies. One of the doctors used the term mistakes of nature. These things happen, and there is no known reason or cause. Some might describe the multiple birth-defects which Marianne had as mistakes of nature. But her life had purpose, which she cheerfully ful lled. She showed us how to live uncomplaining lives in the face of overwhelming challenges. She saw good in everyone she came into contact with, and she brought out the good in us. She enjoyed life. Old Mt. Zion Baptist Church Pastor Chris Carroll spoke of how Marianne enjoyed her gifts of cheering people up, of singing, of praying and her love for Gods creatures. Instead of calling Marianne Elam a mistake of nature, Id prefer to call her one of Gods special gifts. Editors note: Last weeks Happy Corner was left out of the TimesAdvertiser and is reprinted here. Recently we watched a program on TV showing that horticulture therapy is working. On a plot of ground near Jacksonville, veterans of recent wars who sustained physical and psychological injuries are nding Veterans Farm a place to learn job skills while healing from the physical, mental and emotional effects of war. After Sgt. Adam Burke returned from 15 months in Iraq with a Purple Heart awarded for injuries sustained in combat there, he saw a young veteran willing and able to work, sitting by the mall hungry and depressed, but too proud to beg. A young man who grew up on a Florida farm, active in FFA, Burke knew a hand-out was not what was needed for our returning veterans. He had a vision of combining therapy, work, education and socialization through growing blueberries and blackberries and other farm ventures. A testimonial from one disabled veteran, president of Healing Families Ministries Robert Brown, says, This is one of the greatest projects Ive ever been involved in; nobody else is providing this type of therapy on such a large scale for veterans. For the rst time in six winters, I was able to overcome my depression from post-traumatic stress syndrome while working on the Veterans Farm. Several men on the TV program expressed the same sentiment. Most were unable to verbalize how the contact with the soil, the growing of plants, the tending of animals in the clean air of the country were working to help them to overcome PTSD. But all agreed that it was therapeutic. In visiting with Dawn Barone, sixth-grade science teacher at the Bonifay Middle School, we also were discussing the value of her gardening project and the profound effect it is having on her students. It is just impossible to explain how the process of tilling the soil, planting the seeds and watching them emerge and begin to grow into an edible product elicits a sense of wonder and accomplishment. I thought of the Greek mythological god Antaeus. He was the son of Gala and Poseidon, a Libyan giant with seemingly invincible strength. When Antaeus challenged Hercules to a wrestling match, Hercules easily tossed Antaeus to the ground time after time, but each time he sprang back rejuvenated. Hercules realized that Gala, the earth, was the mother of Antaeus and that contact with the earth was the source of Antaeus strength. To defeat Antaeus, Hercules held him aloft until his power drained away. The stories in mythology are an attempt to explain things that occur in nature. Like Antaeus, the wounded warriors who are healing at the Veterans Farm are seeing their strength return as they plant and pick blueberries in the handicapaccessible rows, build outbuildings for farm use, care for the chickens, ducks, goats and other small animals, and work alongside others who have shared the devastation war brings to the physical and psychological body. Two goals of the farm are to show the public that veterans and disabled veterans can be successful working in the civilian world and to provide a combination of work, therapy, education and socialization to help veterans reintegrate into society through sustainable agriculture training. I believe Sgt. Adam Burke is on the right path to giving our returning vets hope and help while training them for skills with which they may re-enter society as productive citizens instead of helpless drains on society. There are ways you can help in this endeavor.

The more Floridians we get back to work, the stronger Floridas economy will be, Gov. Rick Scott said. The results from Februarys Monthly Job Placement Report demonstrate consistent progress, with 31,239 individuals placed in jobsm including 7,112 people who were receiving unemployment compensation, up from 6,536 unemployment compensation claimants in January. The boards reported 32,965 placements in January and 25,201 in December. Regional workforce boards statewide have made helping Floridians enter, remain and advance in the workforce while strengthening the states business climate their top priority, said Chris Hart IV, president/ CEO of Workforce Florida, the states chief workforce policy organization. The goal of the Monthly Job Placement Report is to highlight and share jobplacement achievement so regional workforce boards and other workforce system partners can identify and replicate best practices and strategies that connect job seekers with employment. The report also provides another measurement of Floridas economic activities. Workforce Solutions, in South Florida, earned its rst No. 1 ranking in the Monthly Job Placement Report, up from No. 9 in January. Achieving No. 1 on the Governors Monthly Job Placement Report re ects the dedication our organization has in helping our regional economy climb back to prosperity, president/ CEO of Workforce Solutions Richard Stetson said. I am extremely proud of the performance of our entire organization in achieving this level of success. Our team works diligently with local businesses and job seekers to train, recruit and place individuals in positions to help local companies expand and grow. Workforce Solutions has focused on helping veterans gain employment placing more than 300 veterans since November. Additionally, the board opened services centers last year designed to provide the longterm unemployed with extra services to improve their opportunities to land a new job and has since integrated these services and customers into the areas one-stop career centers. Floridas workforce system is made up of Workforce Florida, the statewide workforce investment board; the Department of Economic Opportunity, responsible for policy implementation, administrative and scal management; and the 24 regional workforce boards and nearly 100 one-stop career centers, charged with the design and delivery of local workforce services. TOP JOB PLACEMENTThe top 10 ranked regional workforce boards for reported job placements in February are:1. Workforce Solutions Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties2.

Wednesday, March 7, 2012 OUTDOORS Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection No one I have talked to is having a difficult time letting go of deer season. Most people are simply glad it is over. Now is the time to clean up those guns and store them. The only part I regret is having to clean up the black powder rifle. You can load it up and keep it loaded most of the season, but fire it just once or several times and you have a job on your hands. If you dont really clean, and I mean really clean, a black-powder rifle after firing you can destroy a very expensive gun by leaving burned powder in the barrel. The next year you will have a rust bucket on your hands. Unlike a center fire rifle that can be cleaned in a soso manner, a black powder rifle requires special care. The gun needs to be taken apart as far as a non-gunsmith can take it. Black powder is very corrosive and will ruin the barrel. I got my barrel as clean as I could, but Im going to have to take the gun outside where I have plenty of room to complete the job. So if you dont like the job of cleaning your gun dont buy a black powder rifle to hunt with. Of course hunting season is not exactly over. Hunters just switch gears and go for turkeys. Turkey hunting is sort of like quail hunting in that its a gentlemans sport, but only if you do it right. The final destination with any hunt is to come home with some game. Turkey hunting is sort of like that, except it has to be done in a certain manner or you are just a meat hunter. The true manner of taking a turkey is to call the bird to you and not sitting half a day around an area you fed deer for six months and the turkeys got used to coming to. Believe it or not, many people hunt in that fashion. Sit and wait and they will come. Sort of like shooting quail on the ground that just isnt done by a real turkey hunter. But you would not believe the number of hunters who do so. I suppose if it sits right with these hunters they never will reveal their secret as long as they come home with a bird. They always will be great turkey hunters to their friends. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net KING COBIA By Tina HarbuckFlorida Freedoms Newspapers Its not a rumor. The crew aboard the Full Pull spotted the rst cobia of the season Wednesday afternoon just off the beach at Navarre. However, the crew, which has pulled in the rst cobia of the season 10 times to kick off the Destin Cobia Tournament at HarborWalk Marina, wasnt so lucky Wednesday. She wouldnt bite, said Capt. Chris Wagner, who was shing along with Andy Block and Tyler Jenkins. All we had were choafer and pin sh, Block said. Not to mention the four-hour window of sunshine to catch a sh. And they didnt see the cobia until the last 15 minutes. Conservatively, she was 80 pounds, Block said. She was a pretty sh. The crew got to work the cobia and toss baits at her for about 15 minutes. After that the fog rolled in and we couldnt see nothing, Blocksaid. This was the Full Pulls rst time in search of cobia this season. Last year they landed the rst cobia of the season on March 10. Its been so warm lately, I just knew there would be a sh out there, Block said, But the ol girl got away. The Full Pull was headed back out Thursday in hopes of landing that rst one. However, they soon might nd themselves with company on the water as others gear up for the season. Im hoping for a good season, said Capt. John Tenore of the Dawn Patrol, but its hard to tell. And it will probably start early, because of the warm weather. Capt. Tenore took rst place in the 30foot and under division of the Destin Cobia Tournament last year with an 86.6-pounder caught on March 17. We saw 12 that day and ended up with three, he said. The number of sh caught last year overall wasnt real high, Tenore said, but we had good quality sh. And if the sh decide to show up early, Weve just got to go with it. Tenore is making plans to hit the water next week in search of cobia. But before he does or anyone does You need to make sure all your tackle is in order, he said. New lines and leaders for the year. Its also good to have an assortment of bait, Tenore said. He suggested such baits as choafer, eels, mullet, cobia jigs and tube lures. Tenore said he likes to take a black and an orange tube lure, until the eels are in for bait. He said one of the biggest cobia hes ever caught was on a tube lure. Another tool of the trade are a good pair of polarized sunglasses to be able to spot the cobia in the water. Also bring plenty of clothes, because you never know when the wind might kick up on the water, he said. As for where, I like to sh in close if its not rough, Tenore said, adding that 20 to 40 feet of water is the sweet spot. However, if its rough, you have to sh outside the break. Early arrivals of cobia usually show up in 62 to 63 degree water, if the conditions are right, Tenore said. But when the water temps hit 68 to 70, its on then, Tenore said. Were already getting antsy, he said. And I wouldnt be surprised if one was caught early. Capt. Kirk Reynolds of the SS Enterprise, who is usually right in the thick of things, said, Its going to be an interesting season. He tends to think the cobia will just trickle in instead of a big run. But its possible well see. And folks might be seeing one sooner than they think as boat captains make plans to hit the water in the next few days.

Come and Play in Bonifay LUCK OF THE IRISHSPECIAL By Cathrine LambEditorial Assistant Clamb@chipleypaper.com It seems as if the time Denny Hamlin spent in Arizona in the offseason practicing paid off for him Sunday in the Sprint Cup Series Subway Fresh Fit 500. Hamlin outraced Kevin Harvick and 42 other drivers to win Sundays race in Phoenix. This race also was plagued by problems with the new, supposedly better, cars. Mark Martin, driver of No. 55, was plagued with a faulty circuit breaker in his car, which makes me wonder, what are they doing putting a circuit breaker in a race car? Martin was not the only one who. Tony Stewart also had a problem with the breaker blowing in his car. With 66 laps to go, a caution was put out on the track and, as he did in Daytona last week, Stewart turned the engine off and let his car coast awhile. He then tried to re re the engine, but it didnt work. He had to coast into pit row to see what the problem was, and it was a circuit breaker. Come on, put the carburetors back so they can re re the engine. When Stewart nally made it back out on the track, he was two laps down and ended up nishing 22nd. By nishing 16th and 22nd in the rst two races, it puts the defending champ in the 15th spot in points. Jimmie Johnson received a penalty for not passing inspection for the Daytona 500 last week. He was ned $100,000 and his crew chief was suspended for six races. He started in Phoenix with a negative 23 points. Even though Johnson nished in the top ve, he is still 37th in overall points. He will have to nish well in all races to even have a shot at making it into the chase this year. Ex-driver Jeremy May eld is free on a $100,000 bond after turning himself in to authorities. He is accused of stealing Red Bull Racing property and other businesses property. May eld was banned from NASCAR in 2009 after failing a random drug test in Richmond, Va. He was arrested again in 2011 on charges of possession of meth.Next races There will be no Camping World Truck Series race this week March 10: 4:16 p.m. ESPN2 Nationwide Series Sams Town 300 Las Vegas Las Vegas Motor Speedway Last years winner was Mark Martin March 11: 2:16 p.m. Fox Sprint Cup Series Kobalt Tools 400 Las Vegas Las Vegas Motor Speedway Last years winner was Carl Edwards NATIONWIDE SERIES BASHAS SUPERMARKET 2001) Elliott Sadler 2) Brad Keselowski 3) Ricky Stenhouse Jr. 4) Austin Dillon 5) Kevin Harvick 6) Sam Hornish Jr. 7) Trevor Bayne 8) Joey Logano 9) Denny Hamlin 10) Michael AnnettSPRINT CUP SERIES SUBWAY FRESH FIT 5001) Denny Hamlin 2) Kevin Harvick 3) Greg Bif e 4) Jimmie Johnson 5) Brad Keselowski 6) Kyle Busch 7) Martin Truex Jr. 8) Jeff Gordon 9) Mark Martin 10) Joey LoganoPOINT STANDINGS AFTER SUBWAY FRESH FIT 500Name Points Behind Leader 1) Denny Hamlin 89 Leader 2) Greg Bif e -6 3) Kevin Harvick -8 4) Matt Kenseth -10 5) Dale Earnhardt Jr. -17 6) Martin Truex Jr. -18 6) Mark Martin -18 8) Joey Logano -19 9) Kyle Busch -23 10) Carl Edwards 26Denny Hamlin wins at Phoenix CATHRINES PIT STOP From Staff ReportsCHIPLEY NBA Hall of Fame member and Chipley native Artis Gilmore will honor the 2012 State Champion Chipley Tigers Friday with a visit to recognize and congratulate the team, according to a news release. On the morning of Feb. 29, prior to the Tigers playing their impressive winning game against Hawthorne, Chipley resident Prince Eon Menckeberg, who is a friend Gilmores, send a message to the Chipley team saying that if they win the game he would get them a private luncheon Artis The ATrain Gilmore. Together With Gilmore, Menckeberg has now established the annual Artis Gilmore Player of the Year Award, which will be awarded each and every year to the most deserving player. This years winner will receive The Artis Gilmore Player of the year trophy, as well as Orlando Magic tickets to see any game, and a chance to meet Orlando Magic players using Menckebergs private seats. On March 9, the Chipley basketball players will be rewarded by Gilmore. The player of the year award trophy will be awarded on March 28.Tigers recognized by NBA playerSEC takes its case to courtFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) The Southeastern Conference is the unquestioned king of college football these days. Six straight national championships will do that for you. On the court, however, the SEC is ghting for respect. The league hasnt won a mens basketball national championship since Floridas back-to-back titles in 2006-07, and it has only one Final Four appearance during that span. Its low point came in 2009, when only three teams were selected for the NCAA Tournament. The conference tournament starts Thursday in New Orleans. Itll be yet another chance for the rest of the SEC to show that the league is more than Kentucky and a bunch of other teams. The No. 1 Wildcats (301, 16-0 SEC) completed an undefeated run through the league with their 74-59 win over No. 22 Florida on Sunday. They own the conferences lone Final Four appearance since 2007, reaching the national semi nals last season before falling to eventual national champion Connecticut. Kentucky coach John Calipari joined the SEC following the 2009 season when Mississippi State, Tennessee and LSU were the only teams selected to the NCAA Tournament and nished a combined 1-3. The Tigers were the highest seed of the group, a No. 8, and lost to top-seeded North Carolina in the second round. Calipari is 40-8 in the SECs regular season with the Wildcats, but he bristles at the mention of the leagues recent struggles. He believes the SEC has ve or six teams capable of reaching the second weekend of play in this seasons NCAA Tournament, and that no one will want to play teams such as the Gators, Vanderbilt and others come tournament time. The perception of the SEC as a second-tier league has had a direct impact on its NCAA tournament selections in recent years. Last season, Alabama won the West Division and had a 2111 overall record following a loss to Kentucky in the SEC Tournament, 12-4 in the leagues regular season. The Crimson Tides resume, however, wasnt enough to earn an NCAA selection as the SEC was left with ve teams in the eld. In order to generate more discussion about SEC teams in the NCAA eld, the conference changed its setup after last season. It eliminated the two-division format that had been in place since the 1992 expansion that brought South Carolina and Arkansas to the table, leaving a singular 12-team league. Alabama, which nished fth, would have once again won the former West Division with its 20-10 overall record, 9-7 in the SEC.

The call came into the Sheriffs Of ce at approximately 2:31 p.m. indicating that the toddler had walked away from his residence with the familys two dogs. Upon arrival, investigators learned that the toddler had been missing for almost two hours and the familys effort to locate him produced only the boys footprints in a wooded area. The toddlers wet clothing was soon located and concern of the searchers intensi ed. As the search continued Capt. Ronnie Bennett with the sheriffs of ce, who was in the wooded area, advised via radio that bloodhounds were needed at his location as he had located the childs fresh footprints along with tracks from the childs pets in a dim road. Bloodhounds from Holmes Correctional Institution responded to Bennetts location and the prison tracking dog quickly indicated that the child had recently been in the area. Moments later, to everyones relief, Bennett announced over the radio that the child was located and was uninjured. The child was missing for over three hours and had traveled approximately three miles through the woods. In response to this positive outcome, Brown said this is one of those times when everyone comes together to assist quickly and the results were outstanding. I was afraid for the child when I arrived because of the dense woods and ponds in the area and we were running out of daylight. The sheriff wanted to offer his thanks to everyone involved in the search as well as those persons and agencies that were in route to assist when the child was located.

FAITH BSectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comBy Andrea RodriguezThe Associated Press HAVANA They cast snail shells to read their fortunes, proudly wear colorful necklaces to ward off illness, dress all in white and dance in bata drum ceremonies. But although their AfroCuban Santeria religion owes much to Roman Catholicism, many are decidedly unenthusiastic about Pope Benedict XVIs March 26-28 tour of Cuba, even if it is being hailed as a watershed moment for a church seeking to boost its in uence on this Communist-run island. Santero priests still remember the last time a pontiff came to town and atly refused to meet with them. They are expecting no better treatment this time, and some are openly disappointed. Their religion is by far the most popular on the island, with adherents outnumbering practicing mainstream Catholics 8-1. Yet as far as the Catholic church is concerned, we live in the basement, where nobody sees us, said Lazaro Cuesta, a Santero high priest with a strong grip and a penetrating gaze. We have already seen one pope visit ... and at no moment did he see t to talk to us. Cuestas bitterness stems from what many Santeria leaders see as an unforgivable snub by Pope John Paul II during his historic 1998 tour. Before that visit, Santero high priests, or babalawo, led a daylong ceremony to ask the spirits to protect John Paul and make his trip a success. As men, women and children danced to the throb of African drums, the priests blew cigar smoke and spat consecrated alcohol to salute the dead. But while the pope met with Evangelicals, Orthodox leaders and representatives of the islands minuscule Jewish community, he never deigned to meet with the Santeria practitioners who had danced for his good health, nor even to acknowledge their faith. Experts say as many as 80 percent of islanders observe some kind of Afro-Cuban religion, be it Santeria, which is more properly known as Regla de Ocha-Ifaor, or one of its lesser-known siblings. Practicing Catholics number fewer than 10 percent, and as elsewhere in Latin America, that share is under assault from conversions to Protestant and evangelical denominations. The 84-year-old popes schedule is considerably shorter than John Pauls ve-day visit was, and it includes no events with Santeros, or leaders of any other religions for that matter. A Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Benedicts schedule could still be tweaked, but he absolutely ruled out a meeting with Santeria representatives. Lombardi said Santeria does not have an institutional leadership, which the Vatican is used to dealing with in cases when it arranges meetings with other religions. It is not a church in the traditional sense, Lombardi said. A decision not to meet with Santeros is in keeping with Benedicts history of vehement opposition to any whiff of syncretism the combining of different beliefs and practices on the ground that it could somehow imply that all faiths are equal. Some also blame historical racism toward Santerias Native American and African traditions. The pope may oppose these traditions, but they are an integral part of islanders daily life, even that of its Catholics. All Cubans know that a woman dressed in yellow honors Ochum, a patron of feminine sensuality related in Catholicism to the Virgin of Charity. Believers crawl on hands and knees in processions of homage to Babalu-Aye, or St. Lazarus, protector of the sick. Relations between Santeros and Catholics have improved since the early days of the islands 1950 revolution, when Afro-Cuban worshippers were ostracized by both the church and the Communist Party, and those who dared to attend Mass decked out in all-white Santero garb were routinely ejected. However, priests still give homilies critical of AfroCuban religious tradition. The two faiths have arrived at a tense coexistence while inhabiting dramatically different spaces in island society. Cardinal Jaime Ortega, the head of the Catholic church in Cuba, consults with President Raul Castro on weighty political matters; Santero babalawos tend to the spiritual needs of the majority. Neither side talks to the other. Scholars say Santeria, which was imported to Cuba through slaves brought from the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria, remains on the political margins due to its scattered, nonhierarchical nature, centuries of taboo and the latent racism that keeps Afro-Cuban faiths from being fully accepted in the fraternity of religions. Santeria is as much a religion as any other, said University of Havana ethnologist Maria Ileana Faguaga Iglesias. But its structure is not vertical; it does not have a maximum leader, it has no buildings and it has never been part of any political power. When it rst emerged on the island, prohibitions forced Santeria practitioners to hide their worship of orishas, or spirits, behind the names of Catholic saints. During Spanish rule and in the early years of the republic, Santeros had no choice but to accept Catholic baptism since church parishes were the only ones keeping birth registries. Historically, at some point all Santeros had some Catholic practice. The Catholic Church was power and was of cial, and others were persecuted, Faguaga said. By the end of the 19th century, Santeria began emerging from underground. Today, it ourishes openly and has spread through emigration to the U.S., Puerto Rico, Venezuela and elsewhere. Santeria is very extended among the people, more so than when I was young, said Monsignor Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, vicar general of Havana and great-grandson of one of Cubas founding fathers. Not just in people of African origin, but also in people of European origin, whites, who today are also Santeros. Santeros nevertheless took it as just another sign that on an island with a white majority, some still see it as a slave-barracks faith, an idea that goes against Cuban ideals of respect for diversity. John Pauls decision to ignore the Santeros, Cuesta said, was a decision to deny our national patrimony ... brought to us by men in chains who arrived as slaves in this country.

My father was fond of saying that friends would come and go, but that family would always be there for you. I also recall how painful it was to both of my parents when there was an argument between siblings. Brothers mortal enemies, a little healthy competition is okay, but siblings should always stick up for each other. If there are rifts in your family, do your best to heal them, and strive to help your family and always be there in times of need. We should have this same attitude to our extended family, to our aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and even distant cousins. But, we should also realize that we are all Gods children and thus part of the human family. No doubt it pains God to see his children From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would him, though he is not far from any one of us. . .As some of your own poets have said, We are his offspring. Acts 17: 26-28 Wednesday, March 7, 2012 Page 4By Rev. James L. Snyder I nd it quite amusing that some of the brightest and richest people in our country do not seem to have a clue as to what they are doing. Most do not have the common sense that God gave to a caterpillar. As Abraham Lincoln used to say, common sense is not as common as it used to be. Amen, to that one. The nancial experts are telling us that we need to buy gold or silver to safeguard our investments. I am way ahead of the game. Several years ago, I got a gold tooth. Fortunately, for me, I got it before the nancial crisis in our country. I cannot tell you what a remarkable feeling it is to walk around with your fortune in your mouth. I hear about all of the investment schemes that are supposed to make me rich. I have a sneaking suspicion that the only people getting rich are those with the investment schemes. They want us to buy stocks and bonds and futures. I never heard of anything so silly in all my life. What would I do with stocks, bonds and futures, whatever in the world they are, in my portfolio. I have no idea what a portfolio is but I am certain it has something to do with these investment schemes. I just do not want anybody folioing around with my port, thank you very much, sir. If I got my facts right, and I looked it up in the dictionary, port has something to do with wine. Why would I want to put a bottle of port into my folio and pretend it is some kind of an investment? I really have to give it to these investment schemers. They really know how to pull the wool over our eyes. I want to go on record as saying that they are not pulling any wool over my eyes. Just leave my wool alone. If I want my wool pulled, it certainly will not be over my eyes, I will tell you that right here. This wool pulling sounds more like sheep eecing to me, and I want nothing to do with it. For me I have discovered a way of safeguarding my wealth. My basic nancial philosophy is simply spend less than I make. I know that is a revolutionary concept in todays world, but it has stood me in good stead for many a year. We live in a culture that has absolutely no spending control whatsoever. This culture does not know the relationship between saving money and spending money. For example, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came home the other day and in a very exuberant tone told me how much she saved at the grocery store. I saved $119.23 today at the grocery store. Isnt that terri c? Being the humble, demure sort of guy that I am, I did not ask her a question that was buzzing around my head at the time. The question was, how much did it cost me to save you that much money? Having a happy home is more important to me than exploring truth at its core especially in this area. My nancial strategy down through the years has been a very regular and wise investment plan. I am not quite sure how I came up with this marvelous plan, but one day it just hit me. Ever since that time, I have been using my nancial investment plan. My investment plan only cost me $19.79 back in the year of our Lord 1986. Since that time, it has faithfully served me and I have no complaints. I have through the years thought about upgrading my investment plan, but then what would the purpose be? Back in 1986, I saw in the mens department of the JCPenney store in our community a very nicely tailored navy blue and gold striped gentlemans vest. It immediately caught my attention and as I examined it, I noticed that inside this vest was a variety of pockets. I looked at them and that is when it hit me. Down through the years I have often wondered why somebody else did not come up with this idea. I guess I am just a genius. I bought the vest and brought it home and hung it in my closet after I rst labeled each of the inside pockets. There was a pocket for dollar bills, one for ve-dollar bills, one for ten-dollar bills and one that I do not use as often for $20 bills. Every time I have a little bit of change left over, I go to my closet turn to my vest and invest that money where nobody can nd it. My investment plan is more or less an in and out exchange program. When I have a need, I sometimes divest some money. Through the years, it has been a great blessing in my investment plan and is something that I am rather proud of. Solomon put it in great perspective concerning wealth when he said, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain ( Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). My investment plan is well buttoned up for future security. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
